Change to Liquor Licensing Process Benefits Licensees

first_imgBusinesses and community groups applying for a permanent liquor licence now have the option to have the required police system check conducted by Service Nova Scotia liquor licensing staff, at no cost to the client. Service Nova Scotia Minister Mark Furey announced today, April 21, that the office’s liquor licensing staff now offer this service. A police system check, commonly referred to as a criminal record check, is required for any business or non-profit organization that applies for a liquor licence. Before now, licensees’ only option was to submit a record check application to the RCMP, municipal police force or a third-party provider at a cost of $30-$50 per individual check. As staff in the business or community organization officials change, new record checks are required. For example, each key member of a community organization’s board of directors must undergo a police system check for that organization to obtain a liquor licence. As members change, new record checks are required which can cost the community organizations hundreds of dollars each year. “This change not only has the potential to save community groups such as legions, arenas and fire departments hundreds of dollars each year,” said Mr. Furey. “It will also save them time by providing a more convenient, end-to-end, one-stop service approach. “This aligns with the mandate of Service Nova Scotia which is to provide service excellence to our clients through ongoing service enhancements.” Service Nova Scotia’s Alcohol, Gaming, Fuel and Tobacco division issues about 120 permanent liquor licences to business and community groups each year. The division expects it will conduct about 600 police system checks each year as a result of this change.last_img read more

Surprised and pained Manish Sisodia writes to Sreedharan says Delhi govt will

first_imgNew Delhi: In response to ‘Metro Man’ Dr E Sreedharan’s letter to PM Narendra Modi requesting him to “not agree to the Delhi government’s proposal of free travel for women in the Metro”, Delhi’s Deputy CM Manish Sisodia wrote to Sreedharan, saying “he’s surprised and pained” by his viewpoint. Explaining the proposal, Sisodia wrote, “The Delhi government will buy around a million coupons in bulk from the DMRC on a daily basis and provide these to women… Why should anyone have any objection to that?” Also Read – IAF receives its first Rafale fighter jet from FranceHe said the Delhi government’s intention is to ensure women’s safety and encourage use of public transport in the capital to reduce air pollution. Sisodia called it a “revolutionary step to empower women”. He said that after the completion of Phase III of the DMRC, services were designed to have a capacity of 40 lakh passengers daily. Sisodia pointed at ridership figures in his letter to Sreedharan and said, “Figures, however, show that DMRC is catering to an average ridership of less than 25 lakh daily… Delhi Metro is running at less than 65% efficiency, and this is pretty bad performance”. Also Read – Cosmology trio win Nobel Physics Prize He also asked Sreedharan to “reconsider his stand and give his blessings for the progressive step”. “By DMRC’s own admission, free ridership for women will increase women ridership by 50%. Delhi Metro should celebrate this…,” he said. Sisodia claimed that “high fares” is one of the main reasons behind falling ridership. AAP spokesperson Saurabh Bhardwaj said that “only one change needs to be made to the software… and the entry gates meant for male travellers should be programmed to reject pink smart cards or tokens issued to women”.

Mueller investigators seek documents from the White House

first_imgWASHINGTON – Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team of investigators is seeking information from the White House related to Michael Flynn’s stint as national security adviser and about the response to a meeting with a Russian lawyer that was attended by President Donald Trump’s oldest son, The Associated Press has learned.Mueller’s office has requested a large batch of documents from the White House and is expected to interview at least a half-dozen current and former aides in the coming weeks. Lawyers for the White House are in the process of trying to co-operate with the document requests.Though the full scope of the investigation is not clear, the information requests make evident at least some of the areas that Mueller and his team of prosecutors intend to look into and also reveal a strong interest in certain of Trump’s actions as president.A person familiar with the investigation who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation said investigators want information on, among other topics, a June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower that Donald Trump Jr. attended with a Russian lawyer as well as on the administration’s response to it.A statement provided to journalists in July, which the White House has said Trump had a hand in drafting, said the meeting was primarily to discuss a disbanded program that used to allow American adoptions of Russian children, but emails released days later by Trump Jr. show that he arranged the encounter with the expectation of receiving damaging information about Hillary Clinton.Investigators also are interested in White House actions involving Flynn, such as what officials knew about an FBI investigation into him and how they responded to word that his Russian contacts had been scrutinized. Flynn was forced out as national security adviser in February after White House officials concluded he had misled them about his conversations with the Russian ambassador to the United States.Former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates has said she warned White House counsel Don McGahn in January that that deception left Flynn and the White House in a compromised position, and that she expected McGahn to take action. That conversation took place two days after FBI agents had interviewed Flynn. But Flynn was not asked to resign until several weeks later, following news reports that said he had discussed sanctions during the transition period with the ambassador, Sergey Kislyak.Former FBI Director James Comey has said that Flynn was facing an FBI criminal investigation “of his statements in connection with the Russian contacts and the contacts themselves. And so that was my assessment at the time.”Comey has also said that Trump, in a private Oval Office encounter in February, told him that he hoped he would end the FBI investigation into Flynn. Trump has denied that.Comey’s own firing in May is also under investigation for potential obstruction of justice, and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller as special counsel and oversees his work, has been questioned by investigators about the circumstances of that event, according to people familiar with the matter.A spokesman for the special counsel’s office declined to comment.Mueller was appointed in May to investigate potential co-ordination between Russia and the Trump campaign, and potential crimes arising from that probe. Investigators in July raided the home of Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, in a search of tax and banking records and in recent months have served subpoenas related both to Manafort’s business dealings and those of Flynn.Mueller’s team of investigators includes prosecutors with experience in organized crime, national security and complex financial fraud cases. The primary prosecutor on the White House investigation is James Quarles, who came with Mueller from the WilmerHale law firm and was involved in Watergate prosecutions.Among the aides expected to be interviewed in coming weeks are McGahn, former press secretary Sean Spicer and former chief of staff Reince Priebus.On Wednesday, Twitter confirmed that it would meet next week with staff of the Senate Intelligence committee, which has been scrutinizing the spread of false news stories and propaganda on social media during the election. The panel has heard from Facebook. The committee’s top Democrat, Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia, had said the committee wanted to hear from Twitter as well to learn more about the use of fake accounts and bot networks to spread misinformation.“Twitter deeply respects the integrity of the election process, a cornerstone of all democracies, and will continue to strengthen our platform against bots and other forms of manipulation that violate our Terms of Service,” the company said in a statement.___Associated Press writer Chad Day contributed to this report.___Follow Eric Tucker on read more

Britain testing how motorways would handle nodeal Brexit

first_imgLONDON — Britain is testing how its motorway and ferry system would handle a no-deal Brexit by sending a stream of trucks from a regional airport to the port of Dover.The tests began Monday morning and are intended to gauge how severe the disruption would be if Britain leaves the European Union on March 29 without an agreed upon withdrawal deal.It is expected that an abrupt departure without a deal would lead to the introduction of tariff and customs barriers that would slow fast-moving ferry and rail traffic that links Britain to continental Europe.There are concerns that major traffic jams leading into and out of the ferry ports of Dover could greatly hamper trade.Parliament is expected to vote on a withdrawal plan next week.The Associated Presslast_img

Volleyball recruit Judkins chooses Buckeyes

The Ohio State men’s volleyball team finished the 2012 season with a 21-9 record and a third-straight 20-win season, but the work for next season has already begun. OSU coach Pete Hanson welcomed Kaukauna, Wis., native Alex Judkins to the 2013 roster Wednesday. Judkins, a 6-foot-6-inch outside hitter, led Kaukauna High School to the state championship in November. After losing the two-time All-American opposite, Shawn Sangrey, Hanson knew he needed to add to the Buckeyes’ roster to fill the void. “He will immediately add depth and size to our group of outside hitters,” Hanson said according to a press release. He is a two-time First-Team All-State and All-Conference honoree and was named the Post-Crescent Player of the Year for two consecutive seasons. “We are very glad that Alex has chosen to join our program,” Hanson said in the release. “Based on his athletic ability and skill set, we believe he will have a very successful career here at Ohio State.” Judkins finished his high school career with 969 kills, 412 of which were from his senior year. “Alex will have the opportunity to compete for a spot right away,” Hanson said. read more

Hellenic Art prize to mother of three

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Almost 100 people turned out for the Hellenic Museum’s award ceremony for their Tales of the Greek migrant: a modern odyssey art competition, on Wednesday night. Pieces from around 35 competitors, both professional and amateur, were on display, with all paintings depicting various themes of multiculturalism. Gina Kalabishis won first prize for her work, An Epic of Declaration of a Better Zoi. The piece was a triptych of flowers with a merging of native Australian flowers and European flowers. The motivation behind the work was multiculturalism Ms Kalabishis, a teacher at Victoria University, said. Ms Kalabishis is married to an Anglo Australian and has three children and said each painting is a meditation of each of those children, as hybrids of a European mother and an Australian father. Her husband and three children were there on the night as Ms Kalabishis was awarded first place. In its first year the competition received a really good response, Director of The Hellenic Foundation for Culture, Vicki Yianoulatos told Neos Kosmos. “We had a really good cross section, the competitors were really diverse.” The total prize pool was $24,000, donated by the Bank of Cyprus and divided across the three major winners. The Bank of Cyprus also awarded a special junior prize to a group of young primary school students who entered the competition. Ms Yianoulatos said this was a great way for two organisations, the Hellenic foundation for culture and the Bank of Cyprus, to engage with the community.last_img read more

Les désodorisants potentiellement dangereux pour la santé

first_imgLes désodorisants potentiellement dangereux pour la santéL’Institut national de l’environnement industriel et des risques (INERIS) a récemment publié un rapport faisant état des potentiels risques pour la santé des substances contenues dans les produits d’entretien ou encore les désodorisants.Mardi, l’INERIS a publié un rapport dans lequel il indique que le formaldéhyde et le benzène présents dans les produits d’entretien ainsi que les terpènes présents dans les désodorisants pouvaient constituer un risque pour la santé. Face à ce constat, l’Institut met en avant le problème de l’étiquetage sur ces produits, pourtant de grande consommation et largement utilisés par une population qui n’en connaît pas les risques potentiels.A travers la publication de ce nouveau rapport, l’INERIS souhaite attirer l’attention des Français mais également des pouvoir publics, sur le manque de données concernant les polluants volatils que l’on peut retrouver à l’intérieur des logements. Le Parisien précise que l’Institut national de l’environnement et des risques souhaite que des “travaux expérimentaux complémentaires” soient réalisés concernant le benzène et le formaldéhyde et cela afin d'”affiner la connaissance des expositions potentielles”. L’INERIS explique également qu’il est “important d’approfondir les premiers enseignements obtenus sur l’exposition potentielle et la dangerosité à long terme” concernant les produits de la famille des terpènes.Le 20 avril 2011 à 14:21 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Morning caffeine fix gets cheaper as rains boost Brazil supplies

first_imgRelated posts:Brazil coffee output set for worst slump since 1965 Coffee futures rise to 25-month high on global deficit forecast New Anacafé chief: Guatemalan state must do more to finance battle against coffee rust Almost half of the world actually prefers instant coffee NEW YORK – Hedge funds are betting your morning cup of coffee is going to get cheaper, even as prices head for a sixth straight monthly loss.Arabica-coffee futures tumbled in 2015 as ample rains boosted crops in Brazil, the world’s biggest producer and exporter. That’s lowering costs for Starbucks Corp. and J.M. Smucker Co., the maker of Folgers brands. Money managers have stayed bearish for 18 straight weeks.As favorable weather increases crop yields, declining currencies in producing countries are encouraging farmers to export supplies that fetch dollars in return. It’s all adding up to overwhelming supplies, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture is predicting that output will top use for a sixth straight year. Brazil’s harvest is poised to keep getting bigger next season, according to Rabobank International.“Supplies will continue to come at a healthy clip,” said Sameer Samana, a St. Louis-based global quantitative strategist at Wells Fargo Investment Institute, which oversees $1.7 trillion. “There’s nothing to suggest starting a new leg up for coffee. Brazilian producers will do anything they can to sell future crops” as the domestic currency retreats, he said.Arabica prices dropped 28 percent this year to $1.1915 a pound on ICE Futures U.S. in New York. The net-short position in futures and options increased to 16,734 contracts in the week ended Dec. 22, according to U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission data released Monday. The figures, which were delayed after the Christmas holiday, compared with 11,409 the prior week.Coffee lovers are already benefiting from this year’s slump. The average U.S. retail price fell 4.3 percent to $4.412 a pound in November, the lowest since February 2011, government data show. In July, Smucker cut retail prices, followed by reductions for some roast and ground products by Kraft Heinz Co., the maker of Maxwell House. Starbucks expects bean costs to stay “favorable” into 2016, Scott Maw, the chief financial officer, said on a Oct. 29 conference call.Coffee isn’t the only crop with big supplies. Food prices have fallen 18 percent in the past year as farmers harvested bumper grain crops worldwide and demand slowed for some meat and dairy products, data from the United Nations Food & Agriculture Organization show. The Bloomberg Agriculture Subindex is heading for a third straight annual decline, the worst slump since 2001.In Brazil, where drought ravaged crops in 2014, plentiful rains helped to rescue coffee trees this year. The country’s next harvest may rise to 58 million bags from 48.4 million a year earlier, estimates Rabobank. Ecom Agroindustrial Corp. sees the crop as high as 60 million bags, each weighing 60 kilograms or 132 pounds.Supplies are also climbing elsewhere. Colombia’s production could reach 14 million bags in 2015 from 12.1 million a year earlier, and may rise to 16 million by 2018, the country’s growers’ federation has said. Honduras, the largest grower in Central America, is set to collect a record harvest.There are still threats for crops that could help the stem the rout for futures, said Lara Magnusen, a La Jolla, California-based portfolio manager at Altegris Investments Inc., which oversees $2.59 billion. Prices more than doubled in early 2014 after a lack of rain in Brazil during the first quarter hurt plantings. The El Nino weather pattern is expected to linger into early 2016. That may bring dry weather to Colombia, reducing bean quality.Even with the supply risks, “the trend is obviously profoundly down” for prices, said Christopher Foster, a portfolio manager at Blackheath Management Inc. in Toronto, which oversees $25 million. “The trend and the fundamentals make it pretty attractive to short coffee. The current rain in Brazil will ultimately improve the crop for next year.”© 2015, Bloomberg News Facebook Commentslast_img read more

first_img Comments   Share   Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Watford played well at right tackle last Sunday against the Oakland Raiders, noting the competition at that spot between he and Sowell is “heating up real nice.” If he plays well Thursday, it’s possible the third-year pro could be in the lineup Week 1 when the Cardinals host the New Orleans Saints. And while it is assumed Massie will reclaim the starting job when he’s eligible, it’s possible that Watford — or whoever earns the job at first — could hold onto it if they play well.Tuesday, Watford acknowledged how big of an opportunity this is for him. It’s not the first time he has a chance to step up and earn a role, but it may be his best.“Yes, yes, definitely,” he said when asked if he feels like this chance to make this year a good one. “I had a chance like this last year and I didn’t seize up to it, so this is it for me.”Given Watford’s versatility — he has practiced and been solid at four of the five positions along the offensive line — it’s possible that even if he does not grab the starting job Thursday, he will be in line for playing time over the course of this season. Top Stories Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires TEMPE, Ariz. —  Back in June, when mini-camp was coming to its close, Earl Watford talked about 2015 being a big year for him, as it is time he establishes himself as an NFL player.Well, if 2015 is a big year, then Thursday night’s preseason tilt with the Denver Broncos may be its biggest game.Watford is slated to start at right tackle for the Cardinals, as he looks to show the coaches he can handle the position while pushing Bradley Sowell, who was penciled in to start at that spot while regular starter Bobby Massie serves his three-game suspension. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and sellingcenter_img But this is as direct a chance as he’s likely to have.Watford said he likes playing right tackle, though he admitted he never could have predicted that his shot to earn a starting job in the NFL would come at the position. He has been practicing at it for a while, though, and feels like he has improved to the point where he is ready to take the opportunity and run with it.At 6-foot-3 and 300 pounds, he has adequate size for the position. He said the biggest difference between playing tackle compared to guard is having to work in space, but noted that each position is its own animal with its own set of challenges.“The biggest thing is working on the technique and putting myself in the best position to beat the opponent,” he said.He did a good job of that last week against the Raiders and their star linebacker Khalil Mack, which helped him to earn this opportunity Thursday. He said he could improve on some things, but gained confidence from his performance that night.“Everyone needs a little confidence boost once in a while, right,” he said, with a laugh. “It was good to go out there and do well and put myself in this position to hopefully start at right tackle.” (AP photo) The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more

Go back to the enewsletter HapagLloyd Cruises has

first_imgGo back to the enewsletterHapag-Lloyd Cruises has announced that low-pollutant marine gas oil (MGO) will be used exclusively on all routes sailed by its expedition ships HANSEATIC nature, HANSEATIC inspiration and BREMEN from July 2020. Joining the fleet in 2021, HANSEATIC spirit will also use this fuel.“With our many years of experience in expedition cruising, we have always set the standard for this segment with our ships, our routes and our mission to deliver quality and service. Acting responsibly towards nature and the environment is always, therefore, a top priority for us. The decision to change fuels gradually and use marine gas oil all year round on all expedition fleet routes in future is, for us, a step in the right direction, towards achieving this important objective,” says Karl J. Pojer, CEO of Hapag-Lloyd Cruises.The use of low-sulphur fuels in the Antarctic has been mandatory for several years, and already Hapag-Lloyd Cruises uses marine gas oil voluntarily in other sensitive regions, such as the Arctic or Kamchatka. This low-pollutant fuel has a sulphur content of just 0.1%. In addition, the new expedition ships are not only equipped with an SCR catalytic converter that reduces nitrogen oxide emissions by almost 95% but also fitted out to use cold ironing.The routes will be planned and carried out with an average speed that is environmentally friendly, cutting fuel consumption by around one third. The Hapag-Lloyd Cruises fleet is also equipped with seawater desalination technology to produce clean water, as well as with biological sewage treatment plants. The bow thrusters and stabilisers run on environmentally friendly bio-petroleum.“The sensitive cruising areas that make up our expedition itineraries should be particularly protected. There are strict regulations in place for these regions that we adhere to, of course. We also set ourselves strict regulations to abide by when our ships cruise through the more remote regions,” adds Karl J. Pojer.Hapag-Lloyd Cruises has also released its new expedition cruise catalogues for the 2020–2021 season.Selected highlights from the routes of the expedition fleet include:HANSEATIC inspiration will set sail for the Antarctic 10 times in total, including on a 23-day tour from Tierra del Fuego to South Africa via the Antarctic (INS2104). The voyage stretches from Cape to Cape: from Cape Horn to the Cape of Good Hope. The change of passengers in Goose Bay in northern Canada is a first; a Hapag-Lloyd Cruises expedition has never started and ended here before. This makes it possible to combine two spectacular expedition destinations, namely the remote region of Labrador and the icy landscapes of Greenland. Guests can enjoy this Arctic experience on two cruises on HANSEATIC inspiration (INS2115 and INS2116). The South Africa cruise is another first, in which HANSEATIC inspiration circumnavigates “the cape of wild animals” for the first time, sailing from Cape Town to Walvis Bay in Namibia (INS2105).HANSEATIC inspiration also embarks on expeditions in Europe. Passengers can explore the British Isles, the Azores and the coastlines of the North and Baltic Seas, often on cruises shorter in duration.Smoke-free shipWith the new catalogue, Hapag-Lloyd Cruises also announced HANSEATIC inspiration will be a smoke-free ship starting in October 2020 (from cruise INS2020 onwards). This policy applies to all interior public areas as well as on deck, including the private balconies and verandahs.Other sample itineraries for 2020-2021Expedition from cape to cape (Antarctica): A legendary route from seafaring history (INS2104): From Ushuaia to Cape Town, 15 February to 7 March 2021 (20 days), from €14,459 per person, cruise only, including charter flight.
