TSX falls as energy stocks fail to get lift from highest crude

first_imgTORONTO – Canada’s main stock market resumed its downward trajectory Wednesday as energy stocks failed to get a lift even though crude oil prices hit nearly a nine-week high.There was a disconnect as the overall market didn’t benefit from higher commodity prices because of uncertainty over NAFTA negotiations, said Candice Bangsund, vice-president and portfolio manager for Fiera Capital.“We’re not there yet and I think the market is just expressing a little bit of caution there and just waiting for some sort of tangible news on the NAFTA front,” she said in an interview.“That NAFTA overhang has really weighed on the index fairly generally and the hope is that we do get some sort of positive news on that front and likely could see a relief rally on Canadian stocks.”The S&P/TSX composite index closed down 45.23 points to 16,049.02, after hitting a low of 15,993.58 on 266.3 million shares traded. The decrease came a day after the market hit its first daily gain in September.Market heavyweights industrials, financials and energy all closed down.Gold, materials and base metals led on the positive because of a lower U.S. dollar and hope that a solution could be found in the U.S. trade dispute with China after a report said that the Americans were seeking new trade talks before even imposing new tariffs.“We find this to be fairly encouraging and I think the market is tentatively, cautiously optimistic so that’s why you’re not seeing a strong relief rally,” Bangsund said.Offsetting the hope was a down day in the United States for the market-heavy U.S. technology sector.In New York, the Dow Jones industrial average gained 27.86 points to 25,998.92. The S&P 500 index was up 1.03 points to 2,888.92, while the Nasdaq composite was off 18.24 points to 7,954.23.The Canadian dollar was trading at an average of 76.84 cents US compared with an average of 76.22 cents US on Tuesday.The gain came as the October crude contract was up US$1.12 at US$70.37 per barrel, the highest level since July 13.The improvement was driven by the U.S. producer price index posting its first monthly decline in 18 months, a weaker U.S. greenback against several currencies and concern about the impact of Hurricane Florence that is set to hit the U.S. southeastern coast.“On the oil front we saw a larger than expected weekly draw down in crude stockpiles so this is contributing to an already fairly tight crude market,” she added.The October natural gas contract was up 0.1 of a cent at US$2.83 per mmBTU.The December gold contract was up $8.70 to US$1,210.90 an ounce and the December copper contract was up 5.4 cents at US$2.68 a pound.last_img read more

US average mortgage rates ease 30year at 483 per cent

first_imgWASHINGTON – Long-term U.S. mortgage rates declined this week, in a quiet pause after weeks of market anxiety over rising interest rates.Home borrowing rates still remain at their highest levels in more than seven years, dampening the outlook for prospective homebuyers. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday the rate on 30-year, fixed-rate mortgages eased to an average 4.83 per cent this week from 4.86 per cent last week. A year ago, it stood at 3.94 per cent.The average rate on 15-year, fixed-rate loans slipped to 4.23 per cent this week from 4.29 per cent last week.Anxiety over rising interest rates, which result from strength in the economy, has buffeted financial markets in recent weeks and spilled over into the housing market.U.S. stocks rallied on Tuesday and Wednesday after falling sharply from early October through the last few days of the month — a skid that wiped out their gains from earlier in the year.The combination of higher mortgage rates and increasing home prices has made home ownership less affordable.Despite the higher borrowing costs, “the monthly mortgage payment remains affordable,” Freddie Mac chief economist Sam Khater said. For many buyers, he said, the persistent lack of available properties for first-time homebuyers is a bigger hurdle than higher mortgage rates because choices are limited. And the shortage of available homes has pushed prices higher.To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country between Monday and Wednesday each week.The average doesn’t include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates.The average fee on 30-year fixed-rate mortgages was unchanged from last week at 0.5 point. The fee on 15-year mortgages rose to 0.5 point from 0.4 point.The average rate for five-year adjustable-rate mortgages dropped to 4.04 per cent from 4.14 per cent last week. The fee held steady at 0.3 point.last_img read more

LS elections choice between Modi and chaos: Jaitley

first_imgNew Delhi: Calling the upcoming Lok Sabha elections a choice between chaos and Narendra Modi, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Monday said what the Opposition had promised to be a “mahagathbandhan” (grand alliance) was turning out to be an alliance of several conflicting “gathbandhans” with multiple leaders, each trying to outwit the other. Jaitley said that going by past precedents, such an alliance could only lead to chaos. “The choice is clear — it is either Modi or chaos,” he said in a Facebook post. Also Read – How a psychopath killer hid behind the mask of a devout laity! The Finance Minister said while several issues occupied the agenda space in an election, the issue of foremost relevance in 2019 was that of leadership where the Bharatiya Janata Party with “absolute clarity” was a clear winner against a “self-destructive coalition of rivals” in which the leadership issue was an “absolute puzzle”. “Within the NDA there are no leadership issues. There is absolute clarity. Narendra Modi leads the NDA and will be the Prime Minister in the event of a victory. His leadership is nationally accepted, his ratings are very high. His track record speaks for itself,” Jaitley said. Also Read – Encounter under way in Pulwama, militant killed On the other hand, he said, was Congress President Rahul Gandhi “who is an inadequate leader” and has been “tried, tested and failed”. “His lack of understanding of issues is frightening. He aspires to be the leader of this chaotic pack,” Jaitley said. He said Mamata Bannerjee was positioning herself as the “sutradhar” (architect) of this grand alliance but “won’t concede a single seat either to the Congress or the Left in West Bengal but will want them to be her pillion riders if she drives the vehicle.” Taking about the other opposition parties, Jaitley said the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and the Samajwadi Party (SP) would contest against the Congress but eventually join hands, and so would the Trinamool and the Congress-Left alliance in West Bengal. “However, in Kerala the Congress and the Left will contest against each other. The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and the National Conference (NC) tried to form the government together with the support of the Congress in Jammu and Kashmir. “Today they are rivals in an election and on the dangerous agenda of either ‘autonomy’ or ‘pre-1953 status’, but could join hands with the ‘gathbandhan’. The Biju Janata Dal (BJD), the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) and the YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) are not with the ‘gathbandhan’,” he said. Jaitley said the BSP was wiped out in the last Lok Sabha elections and Mayawati had now changed her strategy and wanted a strong BSP and a weak Congress. “She holds her cards close to her chest. She will open them only after the results are declared…Leaders with flexible ideologies think that they are acceptable to all. The opposition alliance is unclear — it is absolutely fragile,” he said. Jaitley added that none of the opposition parties were capable of winning any significant number of seats and the alliance won’t have a stable nucleus. “What was promised to be ‘mahagathbandhan’ is turning out to be a ‘gathbandhan’ of several conflicting alliances. It is a self-destructive ‘coalition of rivals’,” he said. “The contest is against a leader in whose hands the country is secure and developing. He is trusted. Against him, there isn’t any projected leader. There are multiple leaders, each trying to outwit the other. They can only promise a temporary government if we go by the past precedents. One can be certain of chaos. The choice is clear, it is either Modi or chaos,” Jaitley said.last_img read more

Fresh flour mills cater to consumers seeking whole, traceable baking ingredients

VANCOUVER — In a small warehouse near the southern edge of Vancouver, a man scoops freshly milled flour into brown paper bags stamped “Flourist” that will soon ship out to customers hungry for fresh, additive-free baked goods.Flourist and other fresh flour producers have seized on rising demand for whole, traceable baking ingredients, as well as a stronger connection between consumers and farmers.Flourist’s cofounders wanted to make fresh flour — the type without any additives and that needs to be stored in a fridge — available to Canadians.“Flour should be consumed fresh after milling and it just wasn’t something we had access to in grocery stores at all,” says cofounder Shira McDermott, lamenting the long list of ingredients that can be used in mass-produced flour to keep the product stable over time.She recalls when her business partner first started gifting her chickpeas and other products from her stepfather’s farm in 2012.“I was just completely blown away by the difference in quality,” she said of their freshness compared to what she says are overly processed grocery store options. They soon started Grain, recently rebranded as Flourist, and sold lentils, wheat berries and other grains in stores and online.The duo purchased a custom-built stone mill from a family-owned company in Austria in 2014, but it wasn’t until the spring of 2017 that they managed to overcome regulatory hurdles and start fulfilling orders.They now mill about a dozen varieties and ship to customers across North America, including dozens of restaurants, mostly in Vancouver.In June, they’ll open an eponymous bakery in an effort to convert more consumers into carb lovers. The 260-square-metre (2,800-square-foot) space will house the mill and sell baked goods, coffee as well as freshly milled flour.All types of consumers seem hungry for their additive-free flour, as well as loaves baked with it. Flourist’s buyers span “a wide stretch,” said McDermott, though its core demographic is probably mothers, foodies and hobby bakers.“Sourdough bread baking is exploding,” she said, and the company plans to use the retail store, in part, to show people what a difference fresh flour makes to a loaf.Recent health trends, like the shift toward gluten-free and anti-carbohydrate diets, pushed Canadians to eat less bread and turn to more premium varieties, according to a recent industry report from market-research firm IBISWorld.There’s a market now — albeit a small one — for artisanal bread, said Dara Gallinger, co-founder and CEO of Brodflour. The mill and bakery opened in early 2019 in Toronto’s Liberty Village neighbourhood, and sells a selection of flour based on what it’s milling that day.“People are starting to be less afraid and I think people are starting to demand more from their bread,” she said, which has also grown into a curiosity about fresh flour.That wasn’t always the case.Garret Jones first attempted to sell flour, freshly milled at home using his countertop contraction about the size of a tea kettle, at Vancouver farmers’ markets about five years ago. But passersby favoured the already baked loaves of bread that used the flour instead.“There wasn’t a huge market for it,” said Jones, one half of the duo behind Vancouver-based Lakehouse Foods, a bread subscription service . “People weren’t too interested in it.”Now, the general awareness around how food is made is growing, he said, and the demand for artisanal bread is likely to increase.He’s hoping to open a bakery in Vancouver within the next year or so where customers can buy grains, much like they would coffee, and mill it themselves at countertop stations.“It’s kind of reaching a tipping point where a lot of people are turning away from factory-produced bread and other baked goods for good reasons.”These companies also provide an alternative buyer for farmers.Will Robbins is one of three partners operating the family farm he grew up on about an hour west of Saskatoon. He was looking to shorten the supply chain for his crops, and develop closer relationships with bakeries and flour mills. He learned about Flourist and now sells his French lentils and red spring wheat to the company.He wanted to make the shift because he thinks it’s important people understand where their food comes from. A cartoon sketch of his face graces the Flourist boxes containing his products.It’s also a financial benefit to him.“The more as a farm we can get out of the commodity markets and into direct relationships with people the more we sort of  protect ourselves from the swings of the commodity market pricing,” he said.The farm currently sells about five to 10 per cent of its crops outside commodity markets, he said, but he hopes to grow these direct relationships to 25 or 40 per cent in the near future.“I’m rooting for those companies to do well and they are for me too… It’s gratifying on a personal level.”Follow @AleksSagan on Twitter.Aleksandra Sagan, The Canadian Press read more

On World Habitat Day UN calls for urgent action to stem unprecedented

With more than 1 billion people living in urban slums, the United Nations today marked World Habitat Day with calls for major government action to prevent the scourge from doubling in the next 30 years.While this year’s slogan – Cities magnets of hope – highlights the important status of cities as refuge for the displaced and home to expanding populations in search of a future, Secretary-General Kofi Annan emphasized that they can also be places of considerable despair.“Never before has the world witnessed such a large proliferation of urban slums,” he said in a message, stressing that 6 billion people, or two-thirds of humanity, will be living in towns and cities by 2050. “Today, 1 billion people, or 1 of every 3 urban dwellers, live in slums. If municipalities and governments fail to manage urban growth and migration sustainably, this number is expected to double in the next 30 years.“Almost everywhere, cities are the destinations for people escaping poverty, conflict and human rights violations, or simply those looking for ways to build better lives,” he added, noting that major cities such as Dakar, Jakarta, Johannesburg or Rio de Janeiro are having trouble accommodating new migrants while so many long-standing citizens are still struggling. The Executive Director of the UN Human Settlements Programme (UN-HABITAT), Anna Tibaijuka, launched this year’s celebrations in Naples, Italy, where she stressed that cities have to be able to provide inclusive living conditions for all their residents, rich or poor, with a decent living environment, clean water, sanitation, transport, electricity and other services.“How we manage this is arguably one of the greatest challenges facing humanity,” she said, calling for the protection of the human rights of trans-border migrants and warning that inner city slums or “ethnic” ghettoes can become hotbeds of social unrest and civil strife, as recent events in Europe have shown.The UN Environment Programme (UNEP) emphasized the considerable ecological impact of urban growth with the prolific use of natural resources, generation of waste and production of most of the greenhouse gases causing global climate change.“They often degrade local water quality, deplete aquifers, pollute the marine environment, foul the air and consume the land, thereby devastating biological diversity,” it said in a statement.“Creating environmentally friendly cities is admittedly a big challenge, but the technologies and expertise we need already exist. Clean transport, energy-efficient buildings, safe sanitation and economical water use are possible now, not just in the future, often in a manner that is affordable for all.”The UN Special Rapporteur on adequate housing, Miloon Kothari, called for “a holistic approach” that includes addressing the cause of rural migration to the cities.“Such migration is generally not voluntary but a result of the loss of hope in rural areas, the loss of means of subsistence resulting from a lack of priority to agrarian reform, growing landlessness and indebtedness, failure to promote rural infrastructure, displacement induced by large projects, distressed housing conditions, or the state and corporate takeover of farmland for industry,” he said in a statement. read more

Softball Ohio State opens season 31 over the weekend

OSU then-junior Alex Bayne (2) is welcomed by her teammates at home plate after hitting a home run during a game against Penn State on April 6 at Buckeye Field. Credit: Lantern File PhotoThe Ohio State softball team opened its season with three wins and a loss at the Aggie Classic in College Station, Texas, over the weekend.The Buckeyes came out hot in their season opener, scoring 10 runs on seven hits while senior pitcher Shelby Hursh struck out six batters and allowed just two hits in five shutout innings. Senior infielder Anna Kirk went two-for-two with a home run, while sophomore shortstop Lilli Piper, a transfer from the University of Akron, made her OSU debut by driving in three runs with a triple and a home run.In the second game of the weekend, the Buckeyes fell 9-1 to No. 19 Texas A&M on Saturday, despite scoring the game’s first run thanks to a first-inning home run by senior right fielder Alex Bayne. The Aggies responded immediately, scoring three runs in the first two innings before putting the game out of reach with a five-run third inning.The Buckeyes responded to the loss with a 4-3 walk-off win over Lamar later in the day. Lamar held a 2-0 lead heading into the sixth inning, but OSU rallied, scoring three runs in the sixth thanks to a two-run home run from Bayne and an RBI from junior infielder Ashley Goodwin. Lamar tied the game with a run at the top of the seventh inning, but the Buckeyes got the 4-3 win in extra innings thanks to a walk-off single from Piper that scored Bayne in the bottom of the eighth.In the final game of the weekend, OSU used a late-game rally to topple Central Michigan 5-1 on Sunday. The Buckeyes managed just one run in the first seven innings of the game, but OSU exploded in extra innings, scoring four runs on RBIs from junior outfielder Bailee Sturgeon, sophomore infielder Emily Clark, Kirk and Piper. Hursh closed the game with a scoreless eighth inning.The Buckeyes head to Chapel Hill, North Carolina, next weekend for the ACC-Big Ten Challenge where they have two game against North Carolina and Louisville in a three day span. read more

The Thunders Problems Are Fixable

We’re only one-fifth of the way through the NBA season, but for those of you scoring at home, the Indiana Pacers and New York Knicks — teams that acknowledged they’d be rebuilding after failing to make it work with their all-star forwards — have better records than reigning MVP Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder, who were expected to be contenders after their blockbuster trades for Paul George and Carmelo Anthony.Just as mind-boggling: Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis in Indiana and Enes Kanter and Doug McDermott in New York — swapped for George and Anthony — are outplaying the big names they replaced, a notion that’s becoming harder to ignore as the season wears on.All of which raises two key questions: What are the Thunder doing wrong, and what fixes are needed to solidify the team as a top challenger to the Warriors out West?At the start of the season, the conventional wisdom suggested that the Thunder would be among the league’s most dominant offenses while sporting a mediocre defense. But the opposite has been true: The defense is doing the heavy lifting while OKC’s ball-dominant stars figure out how to not only coexist, but also thrive as a trio.Only a few possessions into the Thunder’s season-opener, against the Knicks, the team’s dazzling defensive ability was on display.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/thundersequence.mp400:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.When its defense is set, the club can force several extra passes by rotating seamlessly, forcing the opposing team to string out possessions.1Going into Wednesday’s games, opposing teams took a little more than 18 seconds, on average, to complete a possession against the Thunder defense after a made basket, according to advanced-stats site Inpredictable — tied for the NBA’s third-highest mark. With perhaps the NBA’s two best perimeter defenders (George and Andre Roberson) and a physical rim protector (Steven Adams), the Thunder — who rank third overall in defensive efficiency — will likely be among the stingiest, most disruptive defensive clubs all season.But as games drag on, that defensive dominance often fades. Oklahoma City leads the league by a country mile in defense in the first quarter, surrendering just 84.5 points per 100 possessions. But that number falls off with each additional period, going from 99.1 in the second quarter (fourth in the league) to 104.5 in the third (18th) to 109.8 in the fourth (24th). It increases to a whopping 147.7 in clutch situations, when games are within 5 points during the final five minutes of play (dead-last in the league).One key reason this happens: The aggressive defense that the Thunder use doesn’t work as well once Billy Donovan starts putting in backups, who lack the length and athleticism that the starters have. Oklahoma City relies heavily on switches — when players swap defensive assignments on the fly in hopes of neutralizing the opposing team’s pick-and-roll strategy — a scheme that functions fine when the first group is on the floor. But the slightest change, like Raymond Felton spelling Westbrook or Alex Abrines checking in for standout defender Roberson, can throw things out of whack.Notice, in the video below, how Felton opts to switch instead of staying with San Antonio’s Patty Mills. The swap leaves the 6-foot-1 Felton covering Rudy Gay, who is 7 inches taller — a mismatch that the Spurs immediately attack: Pau Gasol throws a lob to Gay over Felton’s outstretched arm.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/loboverfelton.mp400:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Another issue: Oklahoma City’s starting unit becomes an offensive liability in late-game scenarios if the team is behind. The group struggles to create good looks for itself in the closing minutes of contests, partly because of how teams are able to ignore Roberson, one of the NBA’s worst shooters. Watch here, in the final eight minutes of a tight game with the Clippers, as Roberson is left alone at the 3-point line — he doesn’t even look at the basket before passing the ball. Defenders don’t even bother to follow him out there; he is a career 26 percent shooter from deep and is 49 percent from the line.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/homealone.mp400:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Yet the biggest question facing the Thunder at the moment is the obvious one: Can all three of the team’s star scorers play together, or are they doomed to function as three individuals who wear the same jersey?George and Anthony were brought in to ease Westbrook’s burden — last season, the Thunder were largely a one-man show on offense and Westbrook broke the single-season usage rate record — and to give a club that couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn2Even when Thunder players were left wide open last season — meaning 6 feet of space or more — they only made 32.5 percent of their 3-point attempts. That was the worst mark in the NBA. some reliable shooting.But unlike the teams in the West they’re chasing — the Warriors, Spurs and Rockets — the Thunder aren’t synchronized on offense yet. Data from Second Spectrum highlights that Oklahoma City throws fewer passes than any other NBA team. And the club leads the league in isolation rate, according to Synergy Sports Technology, meaning that Thunder players go 1-on-1 more frequently than members of any other team. Each member of Oklahoma City’s star trio essentially takes the same number of shots each game, a rationing that would be great if it didn’t look as though Westbrook were harnessing his offense to make it that way. (Donovan suggested that Westbrook’s struggles this season stem from his trying too hard to make his new teammates feel at ease.)This isn’t the end of the world for the Thunder. Their 7-9 record is underwhelming, but their net rating and point differential suggest that they should have about three or four more wins than they do — a sign that things may begin to break their way. Beyond that, there’s some precedent to suggest they will be fine.The 2010-11 Miami Heat club that united LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh had some things in common with this season’s Oklahoma City team. In addition to boasting a top-10 defense, the Miami trio struggled to play off one another until closer to the middle of that season.James, for instance, shot worse when Wade was on the court, and Wade shot poorly when sharing the floor with James. Both players shot better when playing with Bosh, but Bosh’s shooting declined when playing alongside either of his star teammates. (Anthony shoots far worse when playing with either George or Westbrook; Westbrook shoots considerably worse with George and slightly worse with Anthony; George shoots slightly better when playing with either one of his teammates.) For Miami, the trends began easing toward the end of 2010, and the Heat ended up making a run to the finals.The Thunder are probably banking that some of the offensive woes — Westbrook, Anthony and free-agent signing Patrick Patterson are all shooting career-worsts from the field — will fix themselves. But other methods might help the team’s ball movement and create better looks. Westbrook and Anthony have enjoyed huge success in 1-4 pick-and-roll sets (1.15 points per direct screen, according to Second Spectrum3The league average on such plays is 0.92 points.) and could turn to that more frequently. And it’s worth watching to see whether Donovan, who has implemented a handful of misdirection screen sets that involve all three stars (or just two when one is taking a breather), dials up more handoffs to get the players going downhill more often — a play type that the Thunder have used sparingly so far this season.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/movementthunder.mp400:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/pghandoffscreen.mp400:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.It’s still a bit too early to panic about the Thunder, even if they are playing sub-.500 ball and dropping close games. Based on what we’ve seen from their defense, if and when their offense gets going, it should transform them into the contender so many people thought they’d be this season.Check out our latest NBA predictions. read more

First shark attack on surfer in UK waters leaves man with small

first_imgIf truth be told, Steven Spielberg would have struggled to turn it into a blockbuster.Last night, Britain was reeling from the news that a surfer had suffered the first ever shark attack in UK waters.Unlike the poor victims in the movie Jaws, Rich Thomson was fortunate to walk away from the attack with a cut to his thumb.Mr Thomson, 30, said he would refuse to allow the incident to deter him from venturing into the sea in the future. “It won’t stop me going back in the water and it shouldn’t stop anyone,” he said, “I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.” In an attempt to swim away, Mr Thomson "hit it on the head" before discovering his hand had been "cut to pieces" Mr Dando said: “It [the attack] would be a shock because all sharks have powerful jaws.“All sharks can be very territorial. It was probably just telling the person to go away and struck out.”Ali Hood, director of conservation at the Plymouth-based Shark Trust said the small shark “would likely have been disorientated” by the “turbid, dynamic water” of the river mouth.“British waters are home to a wide diversity of sharks with a number of coastal species such as smooth hound, tope and cat sharks often reported by beach goers and water users,” she said.She said she had not heard of a shark of any sort biting a surfer in British waters. Mr Thomson said pupils at Kingsbridge Community College, where he teaches, had bought him shark ties and have dubbed him Sharkbait and Nemo.“I have never caught any fish while fishing but the biggest one I’ve ever caught attached itself to my leg,” he said.Marc Dando, a wildlife publisher and illustrator, said he thought the shark was probably a smooth hound shark.The smooth hound, found in the eastern Atlantic Ocean from the British Isles to South Africa and in the Mediterranean, can grow up to 6.5ft but typically come in at no bigger than 5ft. Mr Thomson said he had been left with several cuts and a “sizeable bruise about three inches across”Credit:BBC Mr Thomson said he had been left with a "sizeable bruise about three inches across"center_img In an attempt to swim away, Mr Thomson “hit it on the head” before discovering his hand had been “cut to pieces”Credit:BBC Photographs showed a clearly bloodied thumb and grazes on his knuckles.He said that had it not been for his thick winter wetsuit, his injuries could have been far worse. As it was Mr Thomson also suffered a “sizeable bruise about three inches across”.Experts said they believed it was the first time a surfer had been attacked by a shark in UK waters. Mr Thomson told the BBC that when he arrived home, his wife had initially disbelieved him.“I went home and told my wife I was late because I had been bitten by a shark,” he recalled. “She said ‘I’ve heard that one before’, but it was true.” Mr Thomson was surfing off the coast of Bantham in South Devon when the 3ft-long shark – thought to be a smooth hound shark –  grabbed his leg. Mr Thomson, a teacher, fought back valiantly. Deciding he didn’t need a bigger surfboard, he bashed the shark on the head and it swam off. Mr Thomson said: “I turned round and saw this little shark was on my thigh and wriggling its head side to side. “I hit it on the head and it swam off. My hand was cut to pieces.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings.last_img read more

SF rebel Tóibín confident hell be back in the party fold by

first_imgPEADAR TÓIBÍN, THE Meath West TD suspended from Sinn Féin since last summer, has said it’s likely he’ll be back in the parliamentary party by the end of the month.Currently an independent, the deputy was suspended in July after he voted against the party on the Protection of Life during Pregnancy Bill.Speaking to TheJournal.ie this evening, Tóibín reiterated his intention to rejoin, and said he was “confident” he would be back in the party fold in a matter of weeks.He said a number of conversations with the party leadership would need to take place before that could be happen.In the wake of Colm Keaveney’s recruitment by Fianna Fáil last month, Tóibín confirmed that he too had been the subject of a head-hunting approach by Micheál Martin’s party, but said that he refused the request to jump ship.Read: Toibín dismisses talk of SF rift after defeat on abortion ‘free vote’ motionRead: Gerry Adams issues discipline warning as one Sinn Féin TD rejects abortion lawlast_img read more

Neville says England can win the womens World Cup

first_imgThe national team manager believes his team has what it take to win the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup this summer in France.Phil Neville started working as England women national team manager in 2018.And he set his objectives very high, as he wants to win the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup with the Lionesses this summer in France.“It’s probably going to be the most open World Cup in terms of who’s going to win it. And we’re preparing to make sure we have to be at our best,” Neville was quoted by Sports Illustrated.“I said on day one I want to win the World Cup. That wasn’t me being arrogant or big-headed, that was the challenge I set myself and for my group of players.”“At Canada 2015, we came third. So progression is to get to the final, progression is to become better than third,” he added.Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“USA are the No. 1 favorites. You’ve got to say France are No. 2 because they’re the home nation.”“You can never rule out Germany – we played them in SheBelieves last year and they were physically a fantastic side,” he explained.“So we’ve got to be at our very best. But so too have USA, France, Germany.”“I went to an awful lot of games – I still do now, of course – and met a lot of people in the Women’s Super League (WSL), women’s football, the managers, players etc.”“But you’re judged on your results and I felt as if, the minute we beat France 4-1 in my first game, up until then people were waiting for me to fail,” he continued.“And then we beat France – with the style of football that we played – and all of a sudden, it had almost put it to bed.

3 Reasons Why IT Security Must Be a Top Concern for Tech

first_img Web and mobile apps are now a dime a dozen as more ventures join the rush to roll out the next killer app. According to AppBrain, there are nearly 2.8 million apps on the Android market to date. Search for a particular interest or functionality and there is likely a dozen or so web and mobile apps that would pop up. The volume and pace of app creation lead to a sizable percentage of poorly developed apps that almost a quarter of users abandon them after first use.What is worse, these bad apps can leave users exposed. A study by Codified Security found that 40 percent of published apps leave vulnerable backdoors that can be exploited by attackers. These vulnerabilities can leave user data exposed or allow malicious actors to gain access to computers and servers used in testing and development.Related: How Do Google, Apple and Others Stack Up When It Comes to Protecting Your Privacy?The competitive nature of the industry demands ventures to ship software quickly. However, shoddy coding and careless testing can leave the venture and its users exposed to cyberattack risks with potentially disastrous ends. The issue becomes even more pressing as new technology trends such as the wider adoption of financial technology and internet of things (IoT) devices is set to bring forth a new wave of apps and services.Security must be at the center of all tech startup activities.1. Threats are rampant.2016 had no shortage of high profile cyberattacks that involved large tech companies, internet infrastructure providers, banks and government institutions. But, for every big name company, there were numerous other smaller organizations that also suffered attacks. Among the top threats that persist today are ransomware, distributed denial-of-service attacks (DDoS) and data breaches. Ransomware are consistently identified by security firms such as Kaspersky as top threats to organizations. Ransomware are malware that encrypt a computer or network’s files. Attackers then demand ransom from victims in exchange for a chance of getting their files back. DDoS attacks seek to deny access to a website or service by overwhelming its server with traffic. The biggest DDoS attack on record happened last year when DNS provider Dyn was hit. The outage also affected popular sites and apps that were under Dyn’s network such as Netflix, Spotify and The New York Times. Among these attacks, data breaches pose the real threat to end users. Stolen confidential information are commonly shopped around to criminal entities in the dark web. Data containing personal, financial or proprietary information can return a profit when sold in the black market. Sites and apps that store customer information are prime targets for such attacks.Related: We Scored High on This Cybersecurity Quiz. How About You?2. Getting attacked is costly.Any form of downtime or disruption is costly for any business. Network security solution Incapsula estimates the cost of downtime caused by DDoS attacks to an ecommerce site to average $40,000 per hour. Other attackers also perform DDoS attacks for ransom knowing that companies may be willing to pay in order to avoid the costs of downtime.An IBM and Ponemon Institute study says that each stolen record costs the company $158 each in damages. Getting hit by a data breach can heavily impact a company’s valuation as well. The sale price of Yahoo! has dwindled since its disclosure of past massive data breaches. Verizon asked for a $3$350 million discount after the data breaches were publicized.As for ransomware, while attackers may only ask for $722 on average, getting locked out critical files can be catastrophic for organizations that do not have backup systems in place. There is no assurance access will be restored even if the ransom gets paid. Beyond the outright financial impact, businesses also risk loss of customer trust and reputation when hit by cyberattacks. For a startup, such fallout can sink the whole venture before it even gets off the ground.Related: The Worst Hacks of 2017 — So Far3. Tech startups should have higher standards.Businesses get exposed due to a variety of reasons. Non-tech startups are especially vulnerable. Often without dedicated personnel to oversee the proper use of IT resources, it is common for computers and networks to be left unsecure. Lack of training on fundamental IT security practices also leave staff vulnerable to social engineering attacks such as phishing which in turn pave the way for more serious attacks.Tech companies should know better. If they intend to market themselves as experts with superior products, they should be making security a critical part of their work. A good portion of tech startups effort is involved in product development so ensuring that their software is secure is vital.Mirai, the malware responsible for a number of massive DDoS attacks last year, exploits unsecure IoT devices and use them to carry out attacks. Many of these devices, which include IP cameras and network devices, were poorly designed and lacked security features that could have prevented Mirai infections. Leaving out security in the product design and making product development shortcuts can have serious consequences.The Codified Security also revealed that the app vulnerabilities are often due to careless coding. Developers may leave out information in their published code such as server credentials. As some apps use the same server instances when they go live, access to those servers can ultimately compromise all server data which, by that time, may already include customer information.Related: 4 Easy Ways to Protect Your Company From a CyberattackMaking security a prioritySo how can tech startups mitigate these risks?For developers, security should be a fundamental consideration in the software design. Code should be vigilantly reviewed in order to track vulnerabilities which can be exploited. It is critical to subject all software to intensive QA. Testing and should not be skipped in favor of accelerating shipping or launch dates. Organizations should perform security audits to identify vulnerabilities in their operations. Educating staff regarding the best practices ensure that IT resources are used in a secure manner and that no company or customer data get compromised. Tech ventures should also be implementing security measures to cover other business activities especially those that involve customer data such as sales and marketing.Customer information should be held in the strictest confidence. Startups owe it to their customers to safeguard the privacy and security of those who entrusted the company with their business. 6 min read This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience.

Russian activists receive fines for trying to organize a Pride in St

first_imgFirst minor to be fined under Russia’s ‘gay propaganda’ law files appeal GAYSTARNEWS- eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) 30 activists detained at LGBT Pride March in St. Petersburg, RussiaRussian local authorities approve Pride march, then ban it less than 24 hours laterRussian LGBTI activist detained at St Petersburg PrideRead the full article on Gaystarnews:  :https://www.gaystarnews.com/article/russia-activists-receive-fines-pride-st-petersburg/ Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… Armenian villagers tried to lynch LGBTI people, injured nine of them 30 participants were detained for trying to set an LGBTI march in Russia’s second-largest city on 4 August.Despite the event was due to take place on the day, Russian authorities refused to permit the festivities and arrested the activists upon their arrival to Palace Square.The court’s decisionThe court ruled that 13 of the 30 detainees will receive fines.According to Remy Bonny, a political scientist specialized in LGBTI-issues in post-communist countries, the fine is in most cases 5,000 rubles, an amount which corresponds to $73.Six of the participants were underage, so the Russian Commission for the Affair of Minors will handle their cases. They will be registered, but no administrative procedure will be started.Two cases were sent back to the police, while only one participant was released.Eight activists are still waiting for their verdictEight other participants are still waiting for their verdict, but ‘it is very likely they will also receive a fine of 5000 rubles,’ said Aleksei Nazarov.Nazarov is the organizer St. Petersburg Pride.Activists also tried to organize the first legal LGBTI Pride in the country last month. Despite the initial approval, local authorities banned the march after only 24 hours.The appeal‘I feel depressed after every ruling, but it also makes me even more combative. We will appeal all the rulings at the Court of Second Instance’, Nazarov also said.‘If the Court of Second Instance does not agree with us, we will bring it to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.”St. Petersburg Pride will work together with Exit, an organization advocating for LGBT rights and working with specialized lawyers.Anti-propaganda law in RussiaThose identifying as LGBTI experience constant discrimination in Russia. Although same-sex sexual intercourse became legal in 1993, Russia doesn’t recognize same-sex couples.‘Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Russian society experienced an identity crisis. Before, their internal enemy was religion. Now, it is non-traditionalism. LGBTI people are seen as the internal enemy of the Russian Federation,’ said Bonny.Bonny also explained how many perceive Russia’s ‘external enemy, the West’ to promote this ‘internal enemy’.In 2013 the Russian Parliament adopted an anti-propaganda law for LGBTI-related issues.‘This basically killed all LGBT activism in Russia,’ he said.Neo-nazi groups attack young LGBTI peopleHe said that neo-nazi groups attack gay teenagers amid the government’s indifference.‘In Chechnya, a member state of the Russian Federation, local authorities even tortured and murdered hundreds of gay men.’‘Unfortunately, the fact that the activists are receiving fines does not really surprise me,’ Remy told Gay Star News.‘Last week, even a 16 years old boy received a fine for posting a pro-LGBT image on social media in Russia. Neo-nazi groups like Occupy Pedophilia lure young gays to secret places via dating apps like Grindr to beat them up or even murder them. The police do not really take measures to prevent these youngsters from being attacked.’Read more about Prides:Kremlin releases survey saying most Russians believe in LGBTI conspiracy Got a news tip?

Proposed change in pricing model would increase cooking gas costs by 72

first_imgRelated posts:President Solís says proposals to lower record-high fuel prices are not viable Gas prices to go up this week Gasoline prices may drop again in October Gas prices in Costa Rica to remain unchanged through 2015 Costa Rica’s executive branch is criticizing changes to the method used for setting fuel prices as proposed by the Public Services Regulatory Authority (ARESEP), arguing the move would increase prices of other products, particularly cooking gas.The proposed change in the calculation formula used for setting fuel prices would lower per-liter prices of gasoline and diesel by up to ₡10, but it would increase the price of cooking gas by 72 percent, along with bunker fuel (35 percent) and asphalt (45 percent), the government claims.ARESEP proposed the elimination of a subsidy included in the prices of gasoline and diesel since 2009 that allowed lower prices for other products. The regulatory agency will present its proposal at a public hearing on Feb. 14.If approved the new calculation formula would apply later that month and increase the price of a 25-pound cylinder of cooking gas by about ₡2,000 ($3.75), from ₡6,410 to ₡8,470 ($11.90 – 15.75).According to ARESEP some 651,000 homes – 55 percent of the country’s households – use cooking gas, and most of them use 25-pound cylinders.The business sector also disapproves of ARESEP’s proposal. Leaders from the Costa Rican Food Industry Chamber on Monday said they are aware that several companies are currently evaluating the relocation of operations to another country if higher prices are approved.The statement from Casa Presidencial asks the Economy Ministry (MEIC) and the Environment Ministry (MINAE) to issue an official position on ARESEP’s proposal.The government expects MEIC to determine the implications of higher propane prices in products and services, and the effects on the population.MINAE officials are expected to address what terms should be considered in setting a new fuel pricing model, in order to comply with policies set by the National Energy Plan outlined by the administration of President Luis Guillermo Solís.
