Fincantieri Launches New Bid to Delist Vard

first_imgzoom Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri has rolled out a new proposal to seek the privatization of Vard Holdings via a voluntary delisting from the Singapore Exchange Securities Trading Limited (SGX-ST).Vard’s Board of Directors is about to convene an extraordinary general meeting to seek shareholder approval for the delisting, which is also conditional upon SGX-ST’s approval.The delisting needs to be approved by a majority of at least 75 percent, and not being voted against by 10 percent, or more, of the total number of Vard shares held by shareholders present and voting.Subject to the above conditions, Fincantieri O&G, a subsidiary of Fincantieri, intends to make an exit offer for all the issued ordinary shares in Vard.Under the proposal, Vard’s shareholders will be offered SGD 0.25 in cash for each share tendered in acceptance of the exit offer, for a maximum consideration of SGD 60.9 million (approx. EUR 38.5 million).The offer price is one cent higher than the one proposed in 2016, which minority shareholders declined.Fincantieri said that the offer would be financed through available financial resources.Fincantieri O&G currently holds 936,225,710 shares in Vard, equal to around 79.34 pct of Vard’s total issued share capital.last_img read more

RBC says mortgage demand up ahead of new rules reports record annual

first_imgTORONTO – Royal Bank of Canada saw an uptick in demand for mortgages this fall as borrowers look to secure loans before tougher rules — including a stress test — take effect in the new year, one of the bank’s executives says.Neil McLaughlin, RBC’s head of personal and commercial banking, told analysts on its fourth-quarter earnings call there is a heightened awareness of the banking regulator’s revised mortgage underwriting guidelines, which is expected to reduce the maximum amount homebuyers who don’t need mortgage insurance will be able to borrow.“We have seen a little bit of pull forward this fall,” McLaughlin told analysts on the call Wednesday. “As we talk to customers, some of them are surprisingly aware of what the stress test is about and have decided to move more quickly.”McLaughlin’s comments came as RBC beat analyst expectations with a 12 per cent jump in its fourth-quarter net income to $2.84 billion, driven by double-digit year-over-year increases in personal and commercial banking, wealth management and capital markets. Its latest earnings for the three-month period ended Oct. 31 helped to cap off its fiscal year with a record $11.5 billion profit, up 10 per cent from fiscal 2016.It also comes as the banking regulator in October finalized changes to its mortgage underwriting guidelines — moves aimed at reducing risk amid high household indebtedness and rising home prices, particularly in Toronto and Vancouver.The revised guidelines, called B-20, require would-be homebuyers to prove they can still service their uninsured mortgage at a qualifying rate of the greater of the contractual mortgage rate plus two percentage points or the five-year benchmark rate published by the Bank of Canada. An existing stress test requires those with insured mortgages to qualify at the Bank of Canada benchmark five-year mortgage rate.Meanwhile, the Bank of Canada has raised interest rates twice in recent months to the current overnight lending rate of one per cent. On Tuesday, the central bank said in its semi-annual review of the financial system that the steady climb of household debt and still-hot housing markets remained top vulnerabilities. However, it said the new mortgage guidelines would help mitigate the risks associated with low-ratio mortgages (with down payments of 20 per cent or more).McLaughlin told analysts Wednesday that more than 90 per cent of its mortgages are already underwritten at these higher rates, and expects the overall impact of these guidelines to be “fairly modest.”“The vast majority of our portfolio and loan originations are not really going to be impacted,” he said.The Bank of Nova Scotia’s chief executive, Brian Porter, told analysts on its earnings call Tuesday that he expects the new guidelines to create a “five per cent headwind” to mortgage originations.McLaughlin told analysts that RBC expects “a similar number”.Dave McKay, RBC’s president and chief executive, said he expects mortgage growth to “slightly moderate.” Canada’s biggest lender by market capitalization had $142.1 billion in uninsured mortgages as of Oct. 31, up 11 per cent from $128 billion a year earlier.“As the Canadian housing industry digests the changing regulatory landscape, we expect mortgage growth to slightly moderate to the mid single-digits,” McKay said on the conference call. “Household demand, however, should still be supported by changing demographics including the large influx of immigrants expected in Canada over the next three years.”Borrowers are showing signs of caution, said Mark Hughes, RBC’s chief risk officer.“More recently, we have seen an increasing number of fixed rate mortgage originations, signalling increased conservatism by our clients in a rising rate environment,” he told analysts on the conference call.The guidelines could also help RBC retain its existing borrowers, said McLaughlin.The new stress test rules won’t apply to those renewing their mortgages if they remain with their existing lender.“We do see this as a positive, and we do expect some lift to our retention rates,” McLaughlin said.last_img read more

Documents outline Liberal lobbying plan to promote Gordie Howe bridge in US

first_imgOTTAWA – Federal officials have been on a months-long campaign to surreptitiously slip the name Gordie Howe into conversations with top-level American counterparts to promote the new border crossing that will bear the hockey player’s name.The plan hatched earlier this year required government departments to mention the new bridge between Detroit and Windsor, Ont., in any “messaging” on the Canada-U.S. relationship with top politicians and stakeholders, and remind them at every opportunity that the White House supports the project.A presentation outlining the strategy to top civil servants said the goal was to “educate influencers on the importance of the Windsor-Detroit corridor and the new crossing to the U.S. economy.”The proposed six-lane crossing is aimed at easing congestion at the border that is largely funnelled through the privately owned Ambassador Bridge, the busiest crossing between Canada and the United States.The new bridge won’t be completed until at least 2022, provided construction starts next year as planned. The project is expected to cost about $4.8 billion, a tab the Canadian government and a private developer will cover as part of a deal to get the bridge built without the need for congressional approval, which had been impossible to secure.In return, Canada will receive all the revenues from the new bridge to pay off construction costs.At the time the deal was struck, no one was talking about tearing up the North American Free Trade Agreement. Then Donald Trump got elected president and demanded the decades-old trade pact be renegotiated.The May presentation, obtained by The Canadian Press under the Access to Information Act, suggests the Gordie Howe bridge project became part of Liberal efforts to keep NAFTA from falling apart. The presentation and accompanying briefing note for a meeting of deputy ministers repeatedly stresses that Trump sees the bridge as a strategic piece of cross-border infrastructure.Brook Simpson, a spokesman for Infrastructure Minister Amarjeet Sohi, said the bridge topic — in particular its place in a retooled NAFTA — is raised whenever Sohi speaks with U.S. politicians.“This project creates a critically important connection that will greatly improve the flow of trade and its reliability once built,” Simpson said. “Regular engagement with U.S. governments at the federal, state, and municipal levels helps maintain the political and public support the project enjoys.”The constant reminders about the bridge are also likely part of efforts to get the U.S. to commit to providing enough border guards at the new and existing border crossings to avoid bottlenecks, said Lydia Miljan, associate professor of political science at the University of Windsor.“That’s where the big battles are going to come,” Miljan said.“You have to educate Washington on the value of having not just the physical infrastructure, but the human infrastructure in place.”Stuart Soroka, a professor of communication studies and political science at the University of Michigan, said national governments regularly lobby neighbouring jurisdictions on large infrastructure projects to maintain support and avoid a counter-movement.“But it does raise some interesting questions about what governments should be spending money on,” Soroka said, “and whether it’s OK for governments to advertise this stuff.”— Follow @jpress on Twitterlast_img read more

Canadas daycare unlikely to be disrupted as obstacles to shakeups persist

first_imgNatacha Beim opened her first daycare in 1998 and built it into a franchise business that now boasts 21 locations, with plans to open as many as 10 more centres each year.The founder of Core Education and Fine Arts is an exception to what seems to be a rule in the economics of Canada’s highly fragmented daycare system.Despite long-standing shortages, rising fees and political promises of change, there has been little disruption of the largely public market by big conglomerates, startups or even automation.In other well-established industries — from hotels to taxicabs — private sector intervention has ushered in an era of innovation, accessibility and lower prices. But the daycare landscape, with its strict provincial regulations, high real estate fees and low profit margins, presents problems for private companies looking to scale their operations.The biggest problem for Beim is finding enough teachers in an industry where the responsibility is high but the average hourly wage is about $14 an hour.The second issue is government regulations that slow down the opening a centre and cost providers a lot to comply, she said.“It can compromise the whole project,” said Beim. It took her two years to open her first location because it was difficult to navigate permitting, she said.The patchwork of varying provincial and territorial childcare regulations adds another layer of complexity, requiring companies to learn new rules in order to expand into a new province.Canada’s daycare industry will grow at an annualized 3.1 per cent pace from 2017 to 2022 to 44,707 operators, with mostly small care providers joining the market, IbisWorld estimates.The research firm’s report also found that wages account for more than 51 per cent of a daycare operator’s costs and 19 per cent of revenue is profit. Home daycares, especially that operate outside of regulations that require certain caregiver-to-child ratios, can squeeze more profits by employing few staff.However, it would be very difficult for a single company — that cannot fly under the regulation radar — to acquire what would likely be hundreds of one-off businesses to capture a significant share of the overall market, said Mario Ismailanji, an analyst with IBISWorld.Daycare operators also face another barrier that other industries don’t: parent advocates, politicians and academics who call big business unethical for trying to turn childcare into profits.“It shouldn’t be a commodity. It’s considered to be a human right,” said Martha Friendly, a early childhood education researcher who founded the Childcare Resource and Research Unit.She argues that private providers operate in the low margin industry of childcare and trim employee costs to pocket more profits, resulting in higher staff turnover and workers with lower qualifications. Her solution to high fees and wait lists rests with increased government spending, not private disruption.Despite such opposition, private for-profit operations seem to be gaining market share.Friendly’s research found a 10 per cent drop in the number of spaces provided by for-profit businesses from 1992 to 2004, when they made up just 20 per cent of the market, but a resurgence to about 30 per cent in 2016, the most recent year for which data is available.Still, the industry remains heavily fragmented, divided among some 38,300 providers, with few running more than one location, according to IbisWorld’s report. No company holds more than one per cent of market share.However, the report also suggests Canada’s handful of bigger providers, such as BrightPath Early Learning Inc. and Kids & Company, will continue to expand as they take advantage of higher demand thanks to more women joining the workforce, as well as more government assistance making out-of-home care more affordable for more families.BrightPath operates more than 75 centres under several banners. It formed in 2010 under the name Edleun and was a publicly traded company until Busy Bees holdings Ltd., a U.K.-based childcare provider, acquired it in 2017. Kids & Company runs nearly 100 centres between six provinces and lists five more locations opening soon on its website. Both companies declined interview requests to speak about future expansion plans or how private companies could disrupt the daycare market.As demand for affordable spaces continues to outstrip supply, some parents turn to tailor-made solutions, including nannies, relatives or staying at home themselves.But the technology that has been such a disruptive force in other industries is likely years away from true daycare disruption.There have even been experiments with automation.Japanese researchers made headlines in 2016 after creating a childcare robot. They claim four robots and one human can care for more than 60 children together. Chinese robot maker AvatarMind is already shipping its iPal robot, touted as “a companion, educator and safety monitor for children,” in its home country and plans to soon release the product in the U.S.However, a 2017 report on sectors poised to be taken over by robots from the McKinsey Global Institute found that educational services showed the lowest potential for automation.Given Canada’s level of opposition to private, for-profit centres, it appears unlikely that parents would be comfortable with intervention from automation any time soon.Follow @AleksSagan on Twitter.last_img read more

Trump vows to lower tariff hammer on steel aluminum Canada braces for

WASHINGTON — The United States will impose wide-ranging tariffs on steel and aluminum, President Donald Trump declared Thursday, prompting allies to fume, stock markets to fall and analysts to fret about long-term consequences that could rattle the international trading system.After months of suspense, the president released only the barest of details about his plans: a 25 per cent tariff on steel and a 10 per cent tariff on aluminum, numbers that in both cases were higher than had been expected.“We’ll be signing it next week,” Trump told a gathering of industry leaders. “And you’ll have protection for a long time.”Several American allies have already said they would retaliate, including the European Union. News of the tariffs sent stock markets plunging, along with the Canadian dollar. One major unknown lingers: whether Canada — the No. 1 supplier of both steel and aluminum to the U.S. — is on the hit list.Trump was known to be weighing a variety of options — massive tariffs on just a few countries believed to ship dumped Chinese steel, a quota limiting imports or a tariff on the entire world, including Canada, around 24 per cent. The penalty he announced Thursday sounded most like the latter.Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland described the idea of tariffs on Canada as “absolutely unacceptable.”“Should restrictions be imposed on Canadian … products, Canada will take responsive measures to defend its trade interests and workers.”The drama started with the Trump administration unsheathing a weapon rarely used in the trade world: a so-called national security exception. American law allows the president to order tariffs if it’s declared a matter of national security.Trump technically has until next month to make a decision. But he had already made clear he was itching to pull the trigger on tariffs. U.S. news reports described a vigorous battle within the White House between the free-traders and the protectionists who share the same impulses as the president.Some of Trump’s political allies were livid.The issue appeared to split the president from prominent Republicans. He drew condemnation not only from the establishment wing of his party, including powerful senator Orrin Hatch, but also from anti-establishment conservatives, like Mark Meadows, who leads the right-wing caucus on Capitol Hill.Meadows tweeted: “Tariffs on steel and aluminum are a tax hike the American people don’t need and can’t afford.”Trump has received multiple pleas to spare Canada.The Pentagon even published a letter urging him not to target allies. During consultations, witness after witness urged the government to make a special exception for Canada, given the joint auto sector, shared aluminum market and the integrated defence-industrial complex served by the metals.Even the unions supporting tariffs have lobbied for a Canadian exemption. That includes the well-connected United Steelworkers union, which has members in both countries, and a president who is from Canada, Leo Gerard.Gerard has been urging the administration to leave his home and native land out of it.“To put Canada in the same boat as Mexico, or China, or India, or South Korea … doesn’t make sense,” he said in an interview.“Canada should just be excluded — period. We have an integrated economy. And if it gets undone, America will pay a heavy price…. In every opportunity I’ve had, I’ve tried to point out to the key decision-makers that Canada is not the problem when it comes to international trade — and to do something that would sideswipe Canada would disadvantage (the U.S.).”Last year, Canada exported about C$9.3 billion of aluminum and C$5.5 billion of steel to the U.S., where Canadian steel represented just over 15 per cent of overall imports. Indeed, almost 90 per cent of Canada’s exports went directly south.But the issue has significance well beyond North America.Several trade experts have warned that such loose use of a national-security exemption invites others to do the same, and could lead to a domino effect of reprisals. Mexico and Europe are already threatening counter-tariffs.“Trump’s national security protectionism will open Pandora’s box,” blared the headline on a Forbes piece by trade analyst Dan Ikenson.Added Edward Alden of the U.S. Council on Foreign Relations, on Twitter: “This is the most consequential protectionist action by the U.S. since (Richard) Nixon’s 10 per cent across-the-board tariffs in 1971. And those didn’t last very long.”The Canadian government and its business allies intend to keep lobbying hard for an exemption. In Washington, some hoped Trump might get cold feet — as he’s done on specific policies before, like immigration reform.Getting the attention of Americans might be a challenge, however.Word of the tariffs was being partially lost Thursday in an avalanche of American political news. The news network MSNBC ran a graphic illustrating all the big stories it was trying to keep track of — from the Russia probe to alleged conflicts-of-interest at the White House; from gun legislation to ongoing power struggles within the administration.It said: “48 hours, 18 stories.” read more

Key Army camps in the North will not be closed

Tamil political parties in the North have been demanding that the military be withdrawn from the North as the war is now over. The Government today insisted that key Army camps in the North will not be closed and troops will remain in the area.Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka said that the joint opposition was spreading false claims that the Army will be withdrawn from the North. Devananda told Parliament that the incidents linked to sword gangs must be properly investigated and appropriate legal action taken. (Colombo Gazette) Speaking during the budget debate in Parliament today, the former Army Commander turned Minister said that the need to maintain a military presence in the North and East is similar to the need to maintain a military presence in the South of the country. However Fonseka said that the Government will not compromise national security.Meanwhile former Minister Douglas Devananda said that some recent incidents of violence in Jaffna has been linked to political parties in the North. read more

Security Council calls for greater UNInterpol cooperation on sanctions

By a unanimously adopted resolution, the Council said this cooperation would improve the ability of the committees and Member States to implement Security Council measures, particularly those concerning the freezing of assets, travel bans and arms embargoes.The resolution noted that Interpol has played a constructive role in helping the Council’s 1267 Committee, which is responsible for monitoring sanctions aimed at groups and individuals associated with Al-Qaida and the Taliban, and that similar cooperation could also benefit the Council’s other sanctions committees.The resolution stressed that since Security Council sanctions measures are often implemented under national laws, the measure would enhance the level of enforcement at the country level.The resolution also encouraged Member States to take advantages of the tools offered by Interpol, particularly the I-24/7 global police communications system. In December, Interpol used that system to distribute the first Interpol-United Nations Security Council Special Notices for individuals targeted by UN sanctions against Al-Qaida and the Taliban to its 184 member countries.Under that cooperation scheme, if the whereabouts of those suspects become known to police, the Interpol National Central Bureau in the country concerned will be notified immediately so that authorities can implement the relevant UN sanctions against them. read more

Riverdale Goes Straight for Our Emotions with Betty Jughead and Rent

first_img ‘Riverdale’ Season 4 Trailer Toasts to a Mysterious Senior YearSDCC 2019: ‘Riverdale’ Cast Spills Details on Core ‘Mystery’ for Season 4 Stay on target In the lead up to last night’s episode, the CW teased that Veronica, Josie, and the Pussycats were going to sing “Out Tonight” from Rent. That was enough to ensure any theater kid would be glued to the TV at 8 p.m. on Wednesday night. Who knew it would be one of the most harrowing scenes of the season so far? Instead of the fun performance the show put out on YouTube, it was intercut with scenes of what each character was going through. It was the kind of emotionally stressful, shockingly artistic sequence that Riverdale pulls off so well. But let’s back up for a second, because this episode was more than just that one sequence. The whole hour was Riverdale at the top of its game.The Black Hood continues to be terrifying even though he’s only killed, one person. At least for now, he’s moved on from killing to psychological torture. Demanding Betty tell nobody about his calls, he tries to force her to do his bidding. His first request: publish a smear article exposing her mother’s serpent past. That would be especially damaging for her considering she’s currently using Dilton Doiley’s self-stabbing to scapegoat the south side. Betty refuses at first, but she’s pushed to publish it by, who else, her mother. Apparently, the letter Betty got from the Black Hood, the one with the cipher, was written by someone else. Handwriting experts concluded that the two letters purportedly sent by the Hood had completely different handwriting. Does the Black Hood have an accomplice? Is this a copycat? If so, who is talking to Betty, the real deal or the copycat? These are questions Betty doesn’t have time to consider because they don’t even enter ace journalist Alice Cooper’s head. Instead, she goes straight to accusing her daughter of fabricating the note. Yeah, I’d publish my mom’s old dirty laundry too if she pulled something like that. Thankfully, I didn’t grow up in Riverdale and therefore had decent parents growing up.Cole Sprouse as Jughead Jones and KJ Apa as Archie Andrews (Photo: Dean Buscher/The CW)Of course, once she does that, the Black Hood starts to ask for more, increasingly difficult things. If she doesn’t follow his orders, he’ll kill Polly. He makes it very clear that he knows where she’s hiding out. He tells Betty to end her friendship with Veronica, who’s dealing with her own past this episode. An old friend from Veronica’s past life in New York is in town. Nick St. Clair is a “budding music producer” who has his wealthy parents’ ear. Veronica’s parents instruct her to show her old friend a good time so he’ll convince his parents to invest in the Lodge’s real estate dealings. Thankfully, this story doesn’t go quite where it sounds like it might. Veronica’s time in Riverdale has apparently been beneficial to her as a person. Nick is a huge creep. Not only does he actively try to sleep with Veronica, right in front of Archie, he offers her a bump of cocaine and teases her when she turns it down.That’s not to say Veronica is completely against drugs in all their forms. At a party Veronica organizes, Nick brings out some jingle jangle and everyone, but Betty has some. OK, this show needs to tell us exactly what Jingle Jangle is. Veronica talks about it like it’s a normal teenager thing, and there don’t seem to be any bad side effects or withdrawals. If this drug is supposed to be a serious problem, Riverdale has done a bad job of communicating that. The fact that they are obviously Pixy Stix doesn’t help either. Is jingle jangle basically just weed, only a stimulant rather than a depressant? Betty’s reluctance to partake isn’t even necessarily motivated by a ‘Just Say No’ mindset. She’s looking for an excuse to end her friendship with Veronica, and she finds one. In a long, painful monologue, Betty tells Veronica that she’s a shallow person who will dump her Riverdale friends the second one of her New York buddies shows up. Lili Reinhart does an incredible job in this episode. You can see the pain and reluctance in her eyes as she destroys one of her best friends. Betty and Veronica’s enduring friendship has been one of the best things on this show, and it’s actually hurting me to see them torn apart like this.Graham Phillips as Nick St. Clair (Photo: Shane Harvey/The CW)The episode wasn’t done breaking our hearts either. After Betty ruins her friendship with Veronica, the Black Hood tells her to break up with Jughead. She secretly tells Archie everything that’s been going on and asks Archie to break up with Jughead for her. This is the Archie that works best on Riverdale. He’s not driving the action, but he’s a supportive presence. He’s Betty’s good-natured best friend. He’s also very dumb. After Betty tells Archie that the breakup doesn’t have to be painful, that he should let Jughead down easy, Archie blunders the breakup in the worst way. Seeing that Jughead is about to go through an initiation to become a serpent, he uses that as the reason for Betty breaking up with him. He basically tells Jughead that they all knew he’d become involved with the serpents and that she’s been trying to break up with him for weeks. Damn Archie, way to twist the knife. The same can be said about this episode of Riverdale. First Betty and Veronica and now Bughead? The show really went for the throat last night.All this set the stage for the most stressful performance of “Out Tonight” I’ve ever seen. After Veronica rejects Nick’s advances, he appears to have learned his lesson. He apologizes for his behavior, and while Veronica doesn’t let him off the hook, it looks like he’s not a threat anymore. Until that night. While Josie and the Pussycats (plus Veronica) perform “Out Tonight” at her parents’ investors night, they see Nick carrying a drugged, passed out Cheryl away. As the song continues, we see flashes of Jughead going through the Serpents’ initiation, where they each take turns punching him. Betty and Archie deal with their agony separately. Veronica, Josie a, d the Pussycats run to Nick’s hotel room to stop a sexual assault. Finally, this episode lets up on the darkness for just one scene. We get the catharsis we so desperately need. The girls burst into the room, pull Nick away from Cheryl and beat the living daylights out of him. Watching three women stand over a near-rapist, kicking him over and over again, while Josie confronts Cheryl is the moment of triumph we needed at the climax of this episode. Also, fun fact of the version of “Out Tonight” they sang on this episode: the lyric “we won’t be back before it’s New Year’s Day” means it’s from the movie version of Rent, where it was sung by Rosario Dawson. Dawson was also in the 2001 Josie and the Pussycats movie. Just wanted to appreciate the work that went into making such an incredibly convoluted reference to a past Archie comics adaptation. Also, that Josie and the Pussycats movie is way better than you probably remember it being.Vanessa Morgan as Toni Topaz (Photo: Dean Buscher/The CW)It doesn’t last long. Though Betty and Veronica seem to be OK with each other again, Betty gets another call from the Black Hood that night. He knows she’s been talking to Archie. How that’s possible isn’t explained, but again, it hints that the Hood is someone close to her. As punishment, he pushes her even further into the darkness. Threatening to kill her sister, he forces her to give him another target. She has one in mind: Nick St. Clair. The killer says she’s just like him, but wouldn’t we all do the same thing in her situation? Nobody’s going to miss a serial sexual assaulter. Either way, the episode ends with a look on Betty’s face we haven’t seen in a while. Dark Betty might be coming back. Riverdale really was the best it’s been all season last night. Everything about it was so emotionally overwhelming and stressful, I needed to lie down when it was all over. It even made a good case for the Jughead-Toni Topaz relationship for the first time. With Bughead broken up, Toni was the one to comfort him after his beatdown. Hey, at least she waited until he was single to kiss him. That’s admirable. Even as exhausting as this episode was, I was still disappointed when it ended. Riverdale, once again, has hooked me real deep.center_img Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

WWE and Alberto Del Rio agree on a settlement

Following my departure from WWE, an understanding was reached with regards to my future booking opportunities. We wish each other well in our respective future endeavors.”Lawyers of Del Rio and WWE had been going back and forth in recent months trying to reach an agreement after Del Rio’s firing by WWE for slapping former WWE social media manager Cody Barbierri. Barbierri made a racially insensitive comment about Del Rio backstage. WWE stated that Del Rio had breached the morals clause that was in his WWE contract and due to the breach, WWE was attempting to stop Del Rio from wrestling for any other company until August 2015. It is said that with the new agreement between Del Rio and WWE, Del Rio can take future bookings and both sides will not disparage the other. Source: PWInsider.comRecommended videosPowered by AnyClipRonda Rousey Highlighting WWEs ProblemsVideo Player is loading.Play VideoPauseUnmuteDuration 0:30/Current Time 0:05Loaded: 100.00%0:05Remaining Time -0:25 FullscreenUp NextThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Clark County Antique Collectible Show will offer items both funky and fine

first_imgShopping for something unique and special online can be an iffy affair. You can click all those little windows to view what might be the object of your desire from every angle. You can try calling the seller to ask questions. But unless you’re purchasing widgets, you just never know.“There’s nothing like coming and seeing and touching it, and talking to the owner to find out the history, before making a commitment,” said Christine Palmer.Those owners will be on hand at the 12th annual Clark County Antique & Collectible Show this weekend. But not quite as many as have filled up the main hall at the Clark County Event Center at the Fairgrounds in previous years, Palmer said, so the show has rented a smaller hall this year — and packed it tight with 250 of the best possible dealers.“It’s a smaller footprint, but what’s different this year is, it’ll be a little higher end, a little higher quality,” said Palmer, whose Portland-based franchise, America’s Largest Antique & Collectible shows, sponsors this popular Clark County event annually — as well as a sister show in Puyallup.“We are trending toward fine art and true antiques this year,” she said. “But I also want to stress that about a third or more of our dealers will still have the fun, funky stuff.”last_img read more

This ButtWiping Robot Is Number One at Cleaning Number Two

first_img Get Used to ‘Fortnite’s’ Powerful Mech SuitsRobots to Compete in Underground Challenge in Mining Tunnels Stay on target Your smart home might be pretty smart with its learning thermostat, Wifi lightbulbs, Bluetooth-enabled deadbolts, and connected refrigerator. But does it have a robot toilet that wipes your keister?Didn’t think so. Even if you have one of Toto’s crazy-advanced crappers, it’s still not going to save you from the tedium of manual wiping. The latest creation from Simone Giertz just might, however.Yes, the Queen of Shitty robots is back with a brand new invention. One that, like the rest of her creations, isn’t going to make your life better in any real way. Other than giving you a good laugh, of course, and showing you that building things just because can be a whole lot of fun.…even if there is a good chance they’d buff the skin right off your backside, which is why Giertz decides it’s best to let her robot go to town on a mannequin instead. We weren’t expecting subtlety or course. This is the same woman who built the alarm clock that slaps you until you wake up.Witness, fellow geeks, the glory that is the butt-wiping machine!I know what you’re thinking… if only there was a way to make this ingenious new contraption work with another one of our favorite robotic inventions, the chainsaw-powered toilet paper dispenser! On second thought, that’s a terrible idea, and it would probably wind up making Giertz’ mannequin look like… well, something that had a run-in with a chainsaw and had its butt wiped by a high-torque corded drill.last_img read more

Attracted by yoga mesmerised by Kumbh

first_imgReem Ibrahim Al-Arfaj is the first certified yoga trainer in Saudi Arabia. On her first visit to India this past week, she was left mesmerised by the Kumbh mela at Prayagraj. Clad in a black burqa and a hijab, her excitement was palpable when asked about her experience at the Kumbh. “It was amazing. Everyone was smiling and they were excited to meet us. The security there was very high and we felt very safe among those people,” said Reem, who is in her 20s. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfAmong the delegates from 181 countries who were invited by the Indian government to visit the Kumbh and participate in the cultural activities there, she has completed 500 hours of yoga training for trainers under an expert at the Indian embassy in Riyadh last year. She feels she is very good in aspects like yogic sukshma vyayam, shat kriya, surya namaskar, yogasana, pranayama and meditation. “I am a businesswoman and help my father in his business. I heard about yoga and it attracted me. So I enrolled for this programme at the Indian Embassy in Riyadh. Now I can train others in yoga,” she said with a glitter in her eyes. Though Reem did not take a dip in the Ganga, Goran Pejakovic from Croatia not only took the holy dip but also recited the Gayatri mantra while he was in the river. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveHe has been practising Vaishnavism since 1991. “I read Bhagavad Gita and since then I was attracted towards spirituality and Vaishnavism,” Goran said as he flaunted his bodi (tuft) and the janeo. Born in a Christian family, Goran finds no contradiction in the faith of his forefathers and his own “spiritual path”. “They believe in one god and I also believe in one god and that is Krishna,” he added with a smile. His wife and daughter too are devotees of Lord Krishna and the family is vegetarian. Konstantinos Kalaitzis from Greece loves to sing bhajans, including Mahatma Gandhi’s favourite one ‘Vaishnav jana…’ On his 44th visit to India since 1986 and having travelled to all major Hindu pilgrimage sites including Kailash Mansarover, Kedarnath, Gangotri, Yamnotri, Nanda Devi, this was his first chance to visit a Kumbh mela. “But Kumbh was a different feeling. I went in the Ganga and swam. I felt very good after that,” he said. Delegates from other Arab countries including the UAE, Oman and Syria also came. Vinay Sahasrabuddhe, the President of Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) that organised the entire exercise, said it was the brainchild of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “While the Kumbh is happening for millenia together, for the first time a conscious attempt was made to have representation from each and every country on the globe. Invites were extended to those people who were interested in culture,” Sahasrabuddhe said. An orientation programme was held explaining the idea, history and significance of the Kumbh besides the aspects of management that go into organising such a big event. “The idea was to enhance the literacy about the idea of India and Indian culture. Because many a time India and events like Kumbh are seen like a puzzle or riddle. It is an exercise to demystify events like Kumbh,” he added.last_img read more

Agfa Highlights Workflow Productivity of Floor Mounted DR Xray at RSNA

first_img Image courtesy of Agfa HealthcareNovember 24, 2015 — Agfa HealthCare is showcasing the workflow and productivity benefits of its DR 400 direct radiography (DR) solution at the 2015 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting. The flexible, floor-mounted DR 400 is easy to install, takes little space and requires no expensive ceiling structure.The DR 400 offers hospitals a scalable, customizable and affordable way to go digital at their own pace and budget. Easy to install and requiring little room, it includes solid, German-manufactured components and a range of options. The many different configurations allow the hospital to choose where it will start — whether immediately implementing a full DR solution, or with a cassette-based computed radiography (CR) solution they can then evolve to cassette-less DR when they are ready.The DR 400 includes features that support the radiology department to improve workflow and productivity. These features include:MUSICA workstationThe MUSICA workstation included with the DR 400 has been developed with the technologist in mind and offers a broad array of benefits. Using the touch screen, the technologist can complete standard tasks quickly and flexibly, while the intuitive interface makes accessing the features easy, enhancing efficiency.The DR 400 also includes next-generation MUSICA image processing. This intelligent image processing software eliminates the need to spend time adjusting window level, for faster image delivery as well as faster image reading by the radiologist.According to Agfa, the MUSICA workstation offers excellent interoperability and easy connectivity with other systems within the hospital (radiology and hospital information systems, picture archiving and communication systems, imagers), including support of the IHE Radiation Exposure Monitoring (REM) profile.10-inch tube head displayThe tube head display acts as an extension of the MUSICA workstation, allowing the technologist to adapt certain settings directly in the room, near the patient. This includes viewing and adjusting generator settings, e.g. for heavier or lighter patients. The technologist can see and change the sequence of exposures on the display, without going back and forth to the control room. A green status bar lets the technologist know when the system is ready for the next exposure, while a red status bar indicates the need to make a correction. Overall, the technologist can spend more time with the patient, while speeding up the examination process.Ergonomic designThe DR 400 has been designed to improve ease of use and productivity. Automatic cassette size sensing controls the automatic collimator and speeds up workflow, while detector movement handles on both sides of the wall stand enhance convenience. Thanks to the rotating bucky, the detector does not have to be taken out of the bucky each time, and the image format can be switched from landscape to portrait more quickly. The collimator light control on the wall stand can be operated on both sides, while horizontal and vertical tracking speeds up the correct positioning of the patient. The result is a shorter exam time, for greater throughput and patient satisfaction.For more information: www.agfahealthcare.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Contrast Media | August 05, 2019 Bracco Receives FDA Approval for Varibar Thin Liquid for Oral Suspension Bracco Diagnostics Inc. announced U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for Varibar Thin Liquid (barium… read more Related Content Technology | Cybersecurity | August 07, 2019 ScImage Introduces PICOM ModalityGuard for Cybersecurity ScImage Inc. is bridging the gap between security and functionality with the introduction of the PICOM ModalityGuard…. read more News | PACS | August 09, 2019 Lake Medical Imaging Selects Infinitt for Multi-site RIS/PACS Infinitt North America will be implementing Infinitt RIS (radiology information system)/PACS (picture archiving and… read more Videos | Radiographic Fluoroscopy (RF) | August 09, 2019 VIDEO: Demonstration of the Shimadzu FluoroSpeed X1 Radiographic Fluoroscopy System Shimadzu displayed the FluoroSpeed X1 conventional radiographic fluoroscopy (RF) system at the Association for Medica read more News | Artificial Intelligence | August 05, 2019 Montefiore Nyack Hospital Uses Aidoc AI to Spot Urgent Conditions Faster Montefiore Nyack Hospital, an acute care hospital in Rockland County, N.Y., announced it is utilizing artificial… read more Shimadzu FluoroSpeed X1 Walkaround AHRA 2019Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:25Loaded: 11.42%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:25 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.
