World foreign direct investment flows to drop this year UN report

Should the drop happen, it would represent the first decline since 1991 and the largest over the past three decades, UNCTAD said in a statement. However, the level of flows in 2001 is still expected to be higher than that in 1998 and also higher than the 1996-2000 average. The projections are included in UNCTAD’s World Investment Report 2001, launched today in Geneva.This year’s projected dip is the result of a recent decline in cross-border mergers and acquisitions, which account for the bulk of foreign direct investment. The significant increases in such flows in 1999 and 2000, by about 50 per cent and 18 per cent respectively, were caused by megadeals of mergers and acquisitions, as represented, for example, by the $200 billion acquisition of Mannesmann (Germany) by VodafoneAirTouch (United Kingdom) in 2000.The decline in mergers and acquisitions – both cross-border and domestic – is related to the slowdown in the world economy. The prices of shares, for example, which in 2000 were used to finance some 56 per cent of cross-border mergers and acquisitions, fell significantly, when measured in terms of the exchange of stocks. A lull in the consolidation processes in certain industries through mergers and acquisitions (e.g. telecommunications, automobiles) also plays a role. Foreign direct investment flows are expected to decrease significantly in developed countries, from $1.005 trillion in 2000 to an estimated $510 billion in 2001, or by 49 per cent. In the case of developing countries, the decline is estimated to be 6 per cent, from $240 billion to $225 billion. Decreases in foreign direct investment inflows are expected in both Latin America and developing Asia. As a result, the share of developing countries in world inflows may rise to 30 per cent, higher than the share attained in 1998. Inflows in Central and Eastern Europe are expected to remain stable in 2001, at $27 billion. read more

Husky to buy refinery in Superior Wis for US435 million in cash

CALGARY – A US$435-million deal to buy a refinery in Wisconsin will allow Husky Energy (TSX:HSE) to match processing capacity with its growing heavy oil output while postponing a planned asphalt plant expansion in Alberta.The 50,000-barrel-per-day refinery in Superior, Wis., is being purchased from Calumet Specialty Products Partners of Indiana in a deal expected to close in the fourth quarter, the companies said Monday.“Acquiring the Superior refinery will increase Husky’s downstream crude processing capacity, keeping value-added processing in lockstep with our growing production,” Husky CEO Rob Peabody said in a statement.Husky’s heavy oil production from Alberta and Saskatchewan is currently about 170,000 barrels per day, but that will increase by about 40,000 bpd over the next three years, spokeswoman Kim Guttormson said.The Superior refinery deal will grow capacity to refine heavy oil to about 205,000 bpd, she said. Overall downstream capacity, including light and medium grade oil refining, is to rise to about 395,000 bpd, with 275,000 bpd in the United States.Husky owns a heavy oil upgrader and asphalt refinery in Lloydminster, on the Alberta-Saskatchewan border, as well as a light oil refinery in Lima, Ohio, and a 50 per cent stake with partner BP in a heavy oil refinery in Toledo, Ohio.The Superior refinery produces about 9,000 bpd of asphalt, 17,500 bpd of gasoline and 10,900 bpd of diesel, as well as heavy fuel oils.Husky has been contemplating an expansion of its asphalt refinery in Lloydminster to double production to about 30,000 bpd of asphalt.A decision on the Lloydminster expansion, estimated to cost $800 million to $900 million, was expected next year, but will now be delayed until after 2020.Analysts gave the acquisition passing marks Monday for its effect on Husky’s ability to capitalize on growing asphalt demand from increased infrastructure spending across North America.Guttormson said asphalt is transported by rail and can easily be moved across the border to where it is in demand.Husky plans to retain the approximately 180 workers at the refinery, which has direct pipeline connections to the company’s transport terminal in Hardisty, Alta.Follow @HealingSlowly on Twitter.Note to readers: This is a corrected story.

Baseballs Hall Of Fame Is Stuck In The 60s

Last month, the Baseball Hall of Fame announced that nobody was elected in this round of Pre-Integration Era Committee balloting — the second straight year that one of the Hall’s era-based Veterans Committees failed to induct a player from before 1973. 1920s2811.0+17.011.3+16.7 1870s01.0-1.01.0-1.0 1970s1727.3-10.328.3-11.3 DECADEACTUALEXPECTEDDIFFEXPECTED W/ PEDSDIFF 1930s2818.1+9.918.8+9.2 Although players who produced the bulk of their WAR before the 1970s make up only 62 percent of the all-time MLB population, they represent 79 percent of all player inductees. Conversely, the 38 percent of players who made their mark since have yielded only 21 percent of Hall members. If we expect legendary talent to crop up in proportion with the playing population of an era, the Hall of Fame hasn’t been paying attention for a half-century.Then again, maybe it isn’t valid to assume Hall of Fame-caliber careers occur in lockstep with the number of players hitting the absolute minimum for consideration. To check whether there was simply a disproportionate number of great players in action before the ’70s, I ran a logistic regression on all Hall-eligible players, predicting whether they would be inducted based on their career WAR relative to the average for Hall of Famers at their position (a la Jay Jaffe’s JAWS).Based on the production of each era’s players, my regression predicts 124 Hall of Famers to emerge before the 1970s; in actuality, 169 players have been elected from that time frame. We would also expect 91 players from the ’70s or later to be inducted; thus far, only 46 have gotten the nod. This implies that recent decades of baseball history, what the Hall refers to as the “expansion era,” have been shortchanged by about 45 Hall of Famers relative to earlier epochs of the game. That conclusion isn’t based on an arbitrary cutoff — these are the standards set by the Hall’s own past selections.Of course, the matter of steroids can’t be ignored. So could the expansion era’s shortfall simply be attributed to voters’ unwillingness to enshrine players (such as Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens) whose performances would otherwise warrant a Hall of Fame nod? To account for this wrinkle, I added a variable in the regression for whether the player had ever been implicated in the use of performance-enhancing drugs.1Using the same criteria my colleague Walt Hickey and I employed here: Was the player ever suspended for PED offenses, linked to the Biogenesis scandal or named in the Mitchell Report, or did he have a failed drug test leaked to the media? The resulting formula drops Bonds and Clemens down to matching zero percent Hall likelihoods, but it still says the expansion era is about 42 Hall of Famers short of what we’d expect. 1890s1510.2+4.810.5+4.5 For players from the late 1990s and the 2000s, the gap occurs partly because recently eligible players have spent less time on the ballot (and therefore have had fewer chances to be inducted) than their predecessors. But under the Hall’s new rules reducing the years of ballot eligibility, they’ll never get as many cracks at the ballot as players did in the past. And besides, even if we throw out the 1990s and 2000s completely, it doesn’t explain why the ’70s and ’80s are also a collective 23 Hall of Famers shy of what we’d expect.Instead, the biggest explanation boils down to what Bill James called the “expansion time bomb.” Expansion began as early as 1961, with the additions of the Los Angeles Angels and Washington Senators,2Now the Texas Rangers. and six more teams were added by 1969. By 1998, MLB had roughly twice as many teams as it did in 1960.James argued that the Hall of Fame wouldn’t have been affected by expansion at all for about 25 years — and even then the consequences were small, for the time being — but that the effects compounded over time as the ratio of highly accomplished players (according to both traditional and advanced gauges) to inductees grew. Expansion gives more players the opportunity to build Hall of Fame-caliber careers, but it creates a backlog if the voters are slow to account for this by inducting a commensurate number of players. And from the numbers above, it’s clear that the Hall has never quite figured out the expansion time bomb, a problem that continues to grow each year.The good news is that everybody’s ’90s darling, Ken Griffey Jr., will be a lock to represent the decade in this year’s voting, and he’ll probably be joined by Mike Piazza (who was ever so close to induction last year) and other contemporaries. Further, a big change to the makeup of voters — writers who haven’t covered the game in 10 years are no longer eligible for Hall voting — could open the floodgates to more recent players.But for now, the last half-century of baseball has been neglected by the Hall of Fame, and voters have a lot of inducting to do before it’s fairly represented relative to other eras.Read More:Griffey In His Prime Was The Second Coming Of Willie MaysMike Piazza Was More Than A Big Bat 1980s2030.6-10.631.4-11.4 1950s1814.4+3.614.7+3.3 HALL OF FAMERS 1910s1210.8+1.210.8+1.2 1990s930.5-21.525.7-16.7 1960s2123.0-2.023.7-2.7 2000s02.9-2.92.6-2.6 Szymborski is right. Relative to their share of the overall population of Hall-eligible MLB players, those who produced the majority of their wins above replacement before the 1970s — particularly those from the pre-integration era — don’t need their own committee because they’re already wildly overrepresented in the Hall of Fame. In the chart below, we looked at all players retiring in 2009 or earlier with a minimum of 10 career WAR and tracked how many among that group were elected to the Hall.

Michel Temer Brazil president wont quit over bribe claim

Mr Temer said he would prove his innocence (AFP Image)(BBC) Brazil’s Michel Temer is battling to save his presidency, amid allegations he authorised paying bribes to silence a witness in a huge corruption scandal.“I will not resign. I know what I have done,” he said in a televised address.The turmoil caused the Brazilian stock market to have its worst day in over a decade, dropping 9%.A year ago, Mr Temer took over office, after the impeachment of Dilma Rousseff. Now there are calls for his impeached, too.Brazilian authorities have released an audio recording where Mr Temer appears to be discussing bribes.The Supreme Court has approved an investigation into the allegations, but Mr Temer said he would prove his innocence.What do the recordings say?The audio came from a conversation between the president and Joesley Batista, the chairman of meat company JBS.It was originally obtained by O Globo newspaper, having been recorded by Mr Batista using a hidden device.Much of the conversation is inaudible, but the key line comes when Mr Temer appears to discuss making payments to silence politician Eduardo Cunha, who is currently in jail.When Mr Batista appears to imply he was paying Cunha to remain silent, the president was recorded saying, “You need to keep that up, okay?”It does not say what Cunha was being asked to keep quiet about.Mr Temer has said the footage is authentic, taken from a meeting in March, but he has strongly denied wrongdoing.In his address, he said, “I never authorised any payments for someone to be silent. I did not buy anyone’s silence. I fear no accusations.”Can he survive?Mr Temer is already deeply unpopular in Brazil but his centre-right party has been able to govern as part of a coalition.Opposition parties have been demanding snap elections and his impeachment.Various cities held protests on Thursday night, calling “Fora Temer” (Temer out).Of more concern to Mr Temer may be signs of dissent within his administration, with a leader of his coalition allies, the social democrat PSDB, saying they were considering leaving the government.The allegations have rattled Brazilian markets, with investors concerned that if Mr Temer is forced out, his efforts to pull the economy out of recession would be derailed.The main Sao Paulo share index closed down 9% and the Brazilian currency suffered its worst day in 14 years.What happens next?The president will be eagerly seeking the backing of Congress to secure his future.However, his economic reforms, which he saw as legacy project but which were widely unpopular, have been stalled.If he were to be impeached, his successor would be his vice president.But he does not have one.This is because he himself was rapidly elevated from vice president to president, when Ms Rousseff was impeached almost exactly a year ago.A protester dressed as impeached President Dilma Rousseff with a sign saying “I warned you!” (Getty Images) Instead the top job would fall to the Speaker of the Lower House, Rodrigo Maia, although another automatic accession would likely cause major protests and calls for an election.The next election is scheduled for October 2018 and Mr Temer plans to hold his position until then.What’s the wider picture?It is the first time Mr Temer has become fully embroiled in the massive corruption inquiry known as Operation Car Wash.Judge Sergio Moro (c) has become a household name in Brazil for conducting the Operation Car Wash corruption investigation (AFP / Getty Images)The probe, launched in March 2014, centres on companies that were offered deals with state oil giant Petrobras in exchange for bribes, which were funnelled into politicians’ pockets and political party slush funds.The scandal has engulfed Brazilian politics, with a third of Mr Temer’s cabinet under investigation for alleged corruption. Former President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva is facing five charges.The man Mr Temer allegedly condoned the bribery of – Eduardo Cunha – is in prison for corruption, money laundering and tax evasion.Both men played a key role in the downfall of former President Dilma Rousseff, who was removed from office accused of illegally manipulating government accounts. She denies all the charges.

Jesse Malins Meet Me At The End Of The World EP Track

first_imgNETWORK ERRORCannot Contact ServerRELOAD YOUR SCREEN OR TRY SELECTING A DIFFERENT VIDEO Aug 5, 2017 – 5:18 pm Jesse Malin On Influences, Songwriting, New EP Track 1: “Meet Me At The End Of The World””‘Meet Me At The End Of The World'” came from listening to the news and hearing all these people talk about things I really acknowledge and believe in: global warming, what’s going on politically, what’s going on around the whole world. As always, with every generation, you feel like this is the end man: it’s the nuclear arms race, it’s Ronald Reagan, doomsday’s coming, “1984” — that play is more relevant now than ever. All these things are evil and there is a lot of evil, but you have to find a way to stay positive. I believe in the P.M.A., the Positive Mental Attitude, so ‘Meet Me At The End Of The World’ came from being inundated with all my friends that are pissed off about stuff. But you know what, you’ve got to live every day like it could be your last.Musically, the song was written with two chords at a soundcheck in Long Beach with Alejandro Escovedo and Derek Cruz, my guitarist, just jamming these two chords like the Stones or Bowie’s “Heroes” and I started to put a melody over it. … Then I finished it out in a van and me and Derek arranged it in a hotel room in Oakland.”Track 02: “Fox News Funk””It came from a jam that Derek had. It was kind of like a Clash, kind of Sandinista! thing. Again, [it was inspired by] the media blitz … and reading USA Today because it comes under the door, and realizing you don’t want to mix politics and music all the time — but life is political. You walk out your door and you’re hit with things. You have to pay for gasoline. You have to eat. You’ve got to pay rent. And [I thought about] how much the media is owned by the government, by the big corporations, so you’re not getting the full story. I think [this song is] a call to people to go beyond that, go with their guts and their hearts. You have got to treat the people around you with love, but you also have to question the powers that be, because as much as I love this country and this planet, there are some people that are out to line their own pockets and have an agenda.Track 3: “Revelations/Thirteen””‘Revelations’ is a song about a breakup that happened. I was dating a girl who had the same name as me, Jesse, and if we would have gotten married, she would have became Jesse Malin (laughs). … But we met one day to go have ‘the talk,’ like when you’ve got to break up with somebody and have the conversation, and we met at a health food restaurant — I’m a vegetarian — on East 12th Street in Manhattan called Angelica’s. I bumped into like Moby and Cyndi Lauper and John [Joseph] from the Cro-Mags there, and you know it’s just a a great spot, I wish it was still there. But [this song is] the anticipation of playing back that conversation in your head knowing you’ve got to have this talk, but after it’s done you know you’re going to be OK. And then we just went into “Thirteen” by Big Star, it’s just something that happened in the studio and we kept it. It’s one of my favorite Big Star songs.”Track 4: “London Rain””‘London Rain’ was written about our old merch girl and tour manager from the U.K. who was diagnosed with cancer and is paralyzed. She needed a wheelchair and she kept such a great outlook that we named her “The Positive Panther,” and we did a charity with Butch Walker, Joan Jett, the Eagles Of Death Metal guys, L7, Chris Stills, Tommy Stinson — just a whole bunch of people stepped up. And we raised money to get her a wheelchair. I wanted to have a song to sing at that show for her, and “London Rain” was written to do at the benefit, but it became a song that would end up on the Meet Me At The End Of The World EP as well.” Read more News From current events to breakups, New York-based singer/songwriter reveals the inspiration behind the four tracks on his new EPNate HertweckGRAMMYs Aug 5, 2017 – 5:17 pm GRAMMY.comRunning all the way across Grant Park to catch an artist you want to see is a common practice at Lollapalooza in Chicago. Friday, Aug. 4 at noon, that was me rushing to catch New York troubadour Jesse Malin on the BMI Stage for the first set of the day. Rewarded for my efforts, I entered earshot just in time to hear the shimmering reverb-drenched guitar stabs in the opening notes of “She Don’t Love Me Know,” an undeniable number from Malin’s 2015 album, New York Before The War. What followed was a blistering set of tunes plucked from Malin’s prolific career, complete with rock and roll interstitials about love, breakups and opening up for his childhood idols Kiss at Madison Square Garden. As a member of D Generation and as a solo artist, Malin has accomplished a lot throughout his career thus far. So when I caught my breath and caught up with the highly acclaimed songwriter’s songwriter backstage, he took me through each of tracks on his new four-song EP, which features a title track that was possibly the highlight of his Lollapalloza set, and easily the feel-good song of the apocalypse: “Meet Me At The End Of The World.”  Facebook Twitter center_img Dive deeper into Jesse Malin’s mind with some of his favorite summer songs on his official Lollapalooza Spotify playlist.More Lollapalooza: Bishop Briggs Talks Psychics, Music Influences Inside Jesse Malin’s New EP, Track By Track jesse-malins-meet-me-end-world-ep-track-track Jesse Malin’s ‘Meet Me At The End Of The World’ EP: Track By Track Meet Me at the End of the World Email last_img read more

Legendary Gangster Al Capone was one of the First Recipients of Penicillin

first_imgThere is evidence of the medicinal use of mold as far back as the ancient Egyptians, but it wasn’t until 1928 that Alexander Fleming isolated a culture of Penicillium chrysogenum and brought about a revolution in medicine. Fleming’s findings were substantial, but without the necessary funding, he could not make the next leap forward. It wasn’t until 1938 that a team led by Dr. Howard Florey had the funding and expertise to investigate the antibacterial properties of penicillin further.Sample of penicillium mould presented by Alexander Fleming to Douglas Macleod, 1935. Photo by Science Museum London CC BY-SA 2.0In Chicago in 1928, a young Al Capone was busy making his own mark on history. The 29-year-old Capone had by this time been the boss of the Chicago Outfit for three years.He had overseen a growth in fortunes for the gang which happened to coincide with a spate of bombings and murders that went uninvestigated by authorities who were lining their pockets with mafia money.Al Capone.Capone became something of a celebrity who would always be seen in the finest clothes dripping with jewelry and ready to spend cash on those less fortunate than himself.According to History Channel, when Capone first arrived in Chicago in 1920, he was already recruited to the mob. His first job was at a brothel owned by mafia boss ‘Big Jim’ Colosimo.He was great at his job, and he enjoyed the perks that came along with it. It was widely agreed that this is where Capone first contracted syphilis.“Big Jim” Colosimo.Syphilis is one of the first diseases to be written about after the invention of the printing press and is the first disease to be recognized as sexually transmitted.Before the production of penicillin on a mass scale, treatments for syphilis included inducing fevers through administering malaria and an organoarsenical called Salvarsan.The most notorious American Gangsters of the Prohibition EraWhile both were effective to a certain degree, it wasn’t until 1941 that the science behind penicillin created a stable substance that could be produced in large quantities.It is thanks to the scientific breakthroughs of the Oxford lab run by Dr. Florey and his talents as a salesman that the U.S. Army started to produce penicillin on a population size scale.Capone’s FBI criminal record in 1932, showing most of his criminal charges were discharged/dismissed.In 1931, Al Capone was finally arrested and imprisoned. The authorities were not able to make any charges stick except tax evasion, for which he was given 11 years. It was during his incarceration that he began to exhibit the first signs of neurosyphilis.Related Video: Hilarious 1920s Gangster SlangAccording to PBS, by the time of his transfer to Alcatraz he was fully in the grip of syphilis, exhibiting increasing confusion and disorientation and decreased mental facilities.Mugshot of Al Capone at the now closed Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary in California.Capone’s loyal wife Mae appealed to the court to release her husband based on his reduced mental capabilities, and in 1939 Capone was released on “good behavior” into her care. Upon his release, the family tried in vain to find a way to help improve Capones worsening mental and physical state.Aerial view of Alcatraz prison in San Francisco.By 1942, Capone was under the care of Dr. Joseph Moore, a leading expert in syphilis, who was able to get a supply of the newly created penicillin drug. He administered it to Capone making him one of the first syphilis patients in history to be treated with penicillin.Al Capone in 1930.Unfortunately for Capone it was too late to reverse the damage that his advanced syphilis had done to his abilities. By this point he was regularly hallucinating and suffered epilepsy type seizures, but it did halt the progression of the disease.

It gets rave reviews and goes far beyond playing music on demand. You can ask it questions for the weather or traffic, set timers or alarms, order items off Amazon and even help you control your home automation system. Plus it has an always on mic that will listen for when you beckon it for information.2. $15 off Amazon Fire Wireless Streaming HDMI Stick for $24.99 (list price $39.99).If you don’t have a ChromeCast then this is an excellent which is actually a little bit better as it has a dual-core processor, more storage, more memory, and there is an option for a remote if you choose. At this price range it’s a great choice if you want to replace some of your cable programming with online streaming. Plus you can always have it handy if you travel.3. Lowest Price Amazon Fire Tablet Quad-Core 7″ Tablet for $33.33 (list Price $49.99)This is an incredible price for a highly rated and very durable tablet. If you are planning on traveling and don’t want to bring a laptop or your expensive iPad then at $33 this is a nobrainer purchase. In fact you may find yourself switching over entirely as it has a powerful processor and is built to be durable and take a few bumps. As a Prime member you will also get to download movies and shows so they can be viewed off-line or borrow books from the Kindle lending library.4. $30 off Amazon Tap Portable Bluetooth Speaker w/ Alexa for $99.99 (list price $129.99).This has all the functionality of Echo but does not have the “always on” feature which many users will enjoy. It does have a leg up on the Echo as it is portable and battery powered so that it can be easily taken anywhere with you go or moved room to room. It’s basically costs a little less and is a little smaller as the Echo.5. $30 off Amazon Fire TV 4K Media Streamer + HDTV Antenna bundle for $101.47 (list price $131.47).If you are looking to cut the cord, Amazon has made it easy for you with a bonus HDTV antenna and the powerful Amazon Fire TV which can support 4K streaming and a quad-core processor for gaming. In fact you are basically getting the HDTV antenna for free with this bundle so that you can get the major networks like ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX. You even get a free HDMI cable with this bundle.6. $50 off Kindle Voyager 300ppi eReader w/ PagePress Sensors & Adaptive Light for $149.99 (list price $199.99).This is the first discount we’ve seen on the Voyager at hefty 25% off. It is sleeker than the lower end models with a magnesium back and reinforced glass. Amazon hand-tuned the built-in light to automatically adjust to the perfect brightness for your lighting conditions.Amazon also discounted the very popular siblings: $30 off Kindle Paperwhite 300ppi eReader w/ Built-in Light for $89.99 and the $30 off the New Kindle w/ Glare-Free display for $49.99 (list price $79.99).7. $40 Cashback when you book an Amazon Home Service $75 or more.This is by far the best deal Amazon has offered on their home services with a $40 Amazon Credit. This is a terrific service that will do many home improvement services for you. Cleaning, plumbing, building furniture, installing a new thermostat. They do it all and their prices are competitive. We tried this ourselves to install a new smart thermostat on an old furnace and they did a great job.8. Buy a Dash Button for $0.99 and RECEIVE A $4.99 CREDIT after your first pressThe Amazon Dash button allows you to easily reorder items from Amazon that you may have run out of: laundry detergent, coffee, dog food, toilet paper. Simply put it next to your stash and press the button when you need more. This deal is even better as you are only paying $1 for the button and getting $4 off anything you buy with the Amazon Dash button. Amazon ends up having competitive pricing on many of these goods.9. Bose In-Ear Sports Headphones for $49.99 (Orig $99.99) or Bose SoundTrue Headphone II for $99.99 (Orig $179.99)Bose headphones don’t often go on sale and rarely ever hit a 50 percent discount. These are easily the lowest prices we’ve seen on the Bose In-Ear Sports headphones. They are made to be durable and stay in your ears as you exercise. Amazon is also discounting the popular Bose SoundTrue Around the Ear Headphones II for only $100. These are slim, lightweight and and made to be portable without sacrificing on sound quality. 10. Up to 40 Percent Off Open Box Laptops, Desktops, Monitors, Routers & more + Extra 20 Percent Off Amazon Warehouse DealsUse code: “WDEARLY20” or “WDEARLY”. Amazon sells customer-returned electronics at a discount. On Prime Day they are taking up to 40 percent off in addition to a bonus 20 percent off any price you see. If you were looking for a high-end LG OLED TV or a Quad HD monitor, this is your time to get a discount on a used version from Amazon’s warehouse division. 11. iRobot Roomba 614 Robot Vacuum Cleaner for $249.99 (Orig $379.99)We typically see these 600 series Roomba’s on sale for around $300 and this is a full $50 less than a sale price. It features Roomba’s patented three-stage cleaning system and will use it’s iAdapt system to map your room. Many reviews state that this latest model comes with numerous improvements and won’t get stuck under problem furniture. It also comes with a redesigned filter and dust-collection bin. This is a low price and less expensive than you can even get last generation’s model.12. GoPro Hero 4 Session 1080p Action Camera Bundle w/ 32GB SD Card & Remote $199 This is an extremely portable GoPro which is 50 percent smaller and 40 percent lighter than the already small Hero4 Cameras. This can shoot 1080p video at at 60fps and up to 100 fps at 720p. It is easy to use and can start recording with just a single press of a button. PCMag rated this 4 out 5 and this is an excellent deal as you are getting a $50 remote and a SD card for the same price as just the camera by itself. 13. Instant Pot DUO 6-Quart 7-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker & more for $69.99 (Orig $119.99)We own one of these personally and purchased it for $10 more during Black Friday. An electric pressure cooker dramatically cuts down the cook time on soups, stews or braised meats. However this does more than just pressure cook as you can use it simply to slow cook, steam food, sear meats and this newer model can even make yogurt and has two pressure settings. We love ours and highly recommend it if you are busy or need to make a lot of food for the week or for a party.14. Oral-B Pro 7000 Smart Electric Tooth Brush for $89.99 (Orig $149.99)This is the new lowest price we’ve seen by 10 percent. This is less expensive than the 5000 series and includes smart functionality which can track your brushing habits and ensure you are spending enough time on each section of your mouth. It gives real-time feedback and will let you know if you are applying too much pressure. It can even help prevent you from damaging your gum line by brushing too hard. Disclosure: This is brought to you by the Entrepreneur Partner Studio.

Go back to the enewsletter Lufthansa has revealed

first_imgGo back to the e-newsletterLufthansa has revealed one of its best-kept secrets and unveiled the concept for its brand-new business class. It will be available on regular routes for the first time in 2020, with the roll-out of the Boeing 777-9.Lufthansa guests can look forward to beds with a length up to 220 centimetres, and the construction of the back rest allows the shoulder to sink in when you are lying on your side. This keeps the spine straight and makes it possible for side sleepers to also benefit.“The new, ultra-modern Lufthansa business class creates a new global benchmark. It offers our passengers a unique travel experience,” says Harry Hohmeister, member of the executive board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG. “We have consistently and continuously refined our range of premium products for our guests and modernised Lufthansa. Our focus is and has always been on the wishes of our customers and their specific needs. We want to provide them with the perfect travel experience. The new Business Class showcases the full innovative capacity of Lufthansa.”Compared to its predecessors, the Boeing 777-9 has a considerably wider cabin. In the new business class, this space is used to increase the comfort level for passengers. For instance, all passengers in the new business class will have direct access to the aisle. This is made possible by a 1-2-1 and 1-1-1 seat configuration. The new seats also provide customers with an increased amount of personal space, more privacy, as well as generous storage compartments and flat surfaces. Depending on their personal needs, passengers can choose between a number of spatial configurations. For instance, they can choose to have an extended-length bed or a seat with twice as much desk space.Thanks to digital interfaces, all the functions of the seat as well as the inflight entertainment system can be controlled using the passenger’s personal device. Smartphones and tablets can be recharged at the seat using wireless technology. And in the future, anyone who wants to watch one of the movies from the extensive entertainment program will experience the blockbusters on much larger screens in full HD.Go back to the e-newsletterlast_img read more

The Yachts of Seabourn today announced that the co

first_imgThe Yachts of Seabourn today announced that the company will not operate a planned five-month, 15-cruise series of voyages in the Indian Ocean aboard the 208-guest, all-suite yacht Seabourn Legend in late 2010 and early 2011. The vessel will instead be positioned back to the Americas at the end of its Mediterranean season to cruise in the Caribbean for the winter.Calling the decision “regrettable,” Seabourn’s president and CEO Pamela Conover said that while the intended shore-side destinations remain apparently safe for visitors, the high seas routes between them are currently vulnerable to incidents of piracy that have not been adequately controlled.“It makes me sad to have to cancel these cruises,” Conover said. “I personally loved touring Kenya’s game parks, and the islands of the Seychelles, Madagascar and Zanzibar are lovely and exotic destinations where we sincerely had hoped to be able to take our guests. We look forward to a time when the sea routes are controlled enough for us to cruise there for a season.”Seabourn yachting enthusiasts looking for exotic itineraries still have a stunning selection from which to choose. Seabourn Spirit will depart the Mediterranean in November of 2010, sailing through Egypt, the Suez Canal, the Red Sea and Oman to Dubai. Spirit will then continue via India, Thailand and Malaysia to Singapore, to begin a season of cruises exploring Bali, Borneo, Java and the myriad islands of the Java, Flores and Savu Seas. The intimate vessel will even venture southward to Australia’s Northern Territories and Great Barrier Reef.Seabourn Pride, meanwhile, will be cruising in Asia for the full year, and in the autumn will be sailing in China, Thailand and Vietnam, with included or optional extensions to Beijing, Guilin, Cambodia & Laos and the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan. Seabourn Odyssey will make a maiden circumnavigation of South America in early 2011, encompassing the Peruvian and Chilean coasts, the Chilean fjords and Patagonia, Cape Horn, the Falkland Islands, Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil and the Amazon.Seabourn Legend’s voyages among the favored yacht harbors and unspoiled islands of the Caribbean remain a very popular choice for travelers looking for an award-winning small-ship experience in a relaxing and beautiful destination. Itineraries are designed to take advantage of Legend’s intimate size and features, such as the unique fold-out watersports marina that can be deployed in a secluded cove for Seabourn’s signature “Champagne and Caviar in the Surf” beach barbecue. Activities ashore range from snorkeling, yacht-racing, kayaking, hiking, horseback riding and zip-line adventures to visiting artists’ studios, tony boutiques and strolling or relaxing on world-class beaches. On board, deck barbecues and al fresco dining options make the most of the bucolic climate, as do Dancing and Movies Under the Stars. Week-long itineraries sail between Ft. Lauderdale and St. Thomas, or round trip from St. Thomas.www.seabourn.comlast_img read more

ExLaiki exec says he was not in charge of goodwill valuation

first_imgA former Laiki Bank executive on trial for the lender’s collapse in 2013 said on Monday he was not responsible for issues relating to the value of the bank’s goodwill.Panayiotis Kounnis, the bank’s deputy managing director at the time, rejected the proposition that he ought to have weighed in on the matter of the goodwill.He was being grilled by the state prosecutor, who presented as evidence a number of emails Kounnis received from Annita Philippidou, then the bank’s financial director, concerning ongoing discussions within the bank about the value of the lender’s goodwill in its Greece operations.Kounnis said he used to get between 200 and 300 emails in his inbox every day, of which at least 100 were cc’d to him.“There was a policy at the bank, not to pay attention to cc’d emails. This was a cancer festering inside the bank. Whenever someone wanted to shirk responsibility, they would cc others.”The defendant went on to claim that issues relating to goodwill were not his area of expertise.In any case, he added, he was not a member of the bank’s audit committee which was handling the matter. Nor did the committee ask for his opinion.He went on to ask why Philippidou herself did not bring the matter up with the board.Kounnis said it appeared Philippidou at the time agreed with the handling of the goodwill issue, otherwise she would have expressed her disagreement and had it recorded into the minutes of meetings.He moreover stated that Philippidou, as financial director, was the officer responsible for the bank’s financial statements, which at the time in question had failed to factor in a goodwill writedown.The defendant also accused state prosecutors of drumming up charges against him simply to get a conviction.“The end justifies the means,” he said.Kounnis, managing director Efthimios Bouloutas, non-executive vice-president Neoclis Lysandrou and executive board member Marcos Foros face charges of market manipulation and submitting false or misleading information with regard to publishing an interim consolidated financial statement in November 2011, in which they omitted to include a goodwill writedown of €330m for Marfin Popular Bank’s – as Laiki was then known – operations in Greece.Legacy Laiki officials are claiming that in November 2011 the bank did not yet have a clear picture of the situation created after the EU decided the second writedown on Greek debt in October 2011, inflicting huge losses on Laiki and Bank of Cyprus of around €4.5bn.Their position is that without the practical implementation of the programme they were not able to make the correct accounting calculation.The prosecution argues that the bank, having omitted the goodwill writedown from its financial statements, was presenting itself to investors as being more robust than it really was.The trial continues. You May LikeIQgal8 Best Foods for Expecting Mothers to Eat During PregnancyIQgalUndoCampusPlus5 College Degrees That Will Be Gone In 20 YearsCampusPlusUndoAngelino'sKeurig Users are Loving Angelino’s K-CupsAngelino’sUndo British woman who claimed gang-rape taken to courtUndoUrgent work planned on collapsed section of Nicosia wallsUndoBrazil prison riot kills 52, with 16 decapitatedUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
