New US envoy Kelly Craft faces challenges representing Donald Trump

first_imgOTTAWA – Kelly Craft’s first acts of public diplomacy in Canada involved quoting John F. Kennedy — a Democrat — and acknowledging the country’s collective loss of Gord Downie.As for her boss, President Donald Trump, and all his talk of tearing up the North American Free Trade Agreement, that was consigned to the back burner on her first day on the job in Canada.Craft became Trump’s new U.S. ambassador to Canada, but offered a reference to Kennedy — the only deviation from her carefully scripted and delivered public remarks — after she formally took office Monday, becoming the first woman to ever occupy the role.“If I may echo the sentiments of President Kennedy, I truly feel amongst friends,” she said after joining several new diplomats who submitted their credentials to Gov. Gen. Julie Payette at Rideau Hall.The Kennedy remark was not in the first version of her speaking notes, which were distributed by the U.S. embassy after her swearing-in.Craft also gave a respectful nod to the lingering national grief over the death of Downie, acknowledging the passing last week of the beloved Tragically Hip frontman.“It is clear that he deeply loved Canada; his poetic voice fell silent too soon,” she said.“He once said that in recent years, it was hard for him to leave a song without a glimmer of hope. He viewed art, his music and his writings to help bring people closer in. I believe this is important business that we should all be about.”As Trump’s ambassador, she is likely to find herself negotiating some tough issues with her Canadian hosts, including the NAFTA renegotiation and climate change.She has also expressed support for the president’s trade agenda, which involves renegotiating or cancelling NAFTA.She professed to be “a great listener” who will work to protect the economic relationship between the two countries.“I am committed to continuing our collaboration to address security at the border,” she said. “But, I also want to make sure we continue to make it easier to engage in cross-border trade and travel.”Colin Robertson, a retired Canadian diplomat with extensive experience in the U.S., said Craft was clearly trying to put her best foot forward.“It’s in our interest to take her in and embrace her, and have her become, in a sense, our best advocate,” Robertson said.With the latest round of NAFTA talks exposing a wide gulf between the U.S. and Canada, Robertson said Ottawa needs to cultivate Craft as a pipeline for Canada to the White House, said Robertson.That’s especially important, he added, because relations appear strained between Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer.Freeland and Craft exchanged smiles and good wishes in the minister’s office on Monday afternoon with the envoy saying she looked forward to strengthening relations between the two countries.Freeland told Craft that she knows “first hand” that she is extremely well respected in the U.S.“Isn’t it great that we now have the first woman ambassador from the United States.”Payette, who was presiding at her first ceremony to welcome new diplomats, also told Craft it was “a pleasure to welcome you as the first female ambassador of the United States to Canada.”Roland Paris, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s first foreign policy adviser, said Craft faces the tough task of representing a president who is unpopular in Canada.“It won’t be easy to put a kinder and saner face on this administration,” said Paris.“Among other things, she will be asked to explain why President Trump seems inclined to treat Canada, America’s closest ally and friend, as an economic adversary rather than as a partner.”Craft got cracking on that job Monday, declaring: “It is a privilege to represent the United States in Canada and to be entrusted with the responsibility of working so closely with such an important friend, ally and neighbour.”Craft is well-known sports fan, philanthropist and powerful donor to the Republican party, whose husband is Joe Craft, a wealthy Kentucky coal magnate.She is also close with Senate Leader Mitch McConnell, one of the country’s most powerful lawmakers, who also hails from her state.McConnell has occasionally bickered with the president, whose anti-establishment, trade-skeptical, more combative stance has put him at odds with the party’s establishment.Paris said it will be difficult at times for Craft to represent her president to the Canadian government, “given the confused state of the Trump administration.”Note to readers: This is a corrected story. An earlier version referred to the ambassador as Kelly Knight Craft, a name she is no longer using.last_img read more

No Jitter Roll Five for Friday

The management software is generally available and works in conjunction with Jabber and the Cisco 7800 and 8800 Phone Series. In this week’s No Jitter Roll, we share the latest news on expanded PSTN audio coverage for Webex Meetings, the latest headset management technology, AI-based recommendations, UC platform enhancements, and an update to Rumpus videoconferences. Cisco Webex Expands PSTN Audio Global CoverageStarting this week’s news is a pair of announcements from Cisco. First, the company expanded its global public switched telephone network (PSTN) audio coverage for Webex Meetings to include 11 additional countries and made changes to its Webex Meetings Audio coverage plans. To alleviate the costs associated with PSTN audio across the globe, Cisco has expanded its global PSTN audio coverage to Webex Meetings Flex plan users in Bulgaria, Costa Rica, Cyprus, El Salvador, Georgia, Malta, Peru, Puerto Rico, Romania, Turkey, and Ukraine for no additional cost. With this service, companies can consolidate their Webex Meetings and PSTN audio bills and save money. To further reduce costs, Cisco recommends keeping your audio usage to IP audio (on-network) to lower total cost of ownership (TCO) for meetings. The company also suggests this can be done by encouraging Webex Meetings users to adopt in-app computer or mobile VoIP participant join; Cisco video devices; or Webex Edge Audio, to leverage PSTN cost savings for on-net participants. No Jitter Roll: Five for Friday Ryan Daily October 04, 2019 A look at the latest news coming from BlueJeans, Symphony, Unify Square, Arkadin, and Edify Labs. With CUCM 12.5, IT admins can remotely deploy headsets, view real-time usage metrics, receive diagnostic data, and push automatic firmware updates to discrete groups or the entire organization. When a user receives a headset and connects to Cisco Jabber or desk phone, UCM registers the headset, identifies the owner, and begins tracking. Highfive Promotes Interoperability, Accessibility Ryan Daily September 11, 2019 With a mission to make video conferencing more ubiquitous, Highfive introduced a new connector tool and licensing model. Log in or register to post comments The new feature uses AI technology to highlight moments from meetings and make role-based suggestions for deals, meetings, reviews, or coaching opportunities. For example, managers might receive suggestions on what deals are most at risk or items that might be of high importance after a meeting. Additionally, the system might identify low scoring skills for a specific sales team member – creating an opportunity for management to provide more coaching, according to Chorus.AI. The image below shows examples of how the system displays the recommendations. Chorus.ai Launches AI-based RecommendationsIn the meeting space, conversation intelligence platform provider Chorus.ai has added AI-based recommendations to its platform.

In addition to the expanded coverage, the company rolled out a series of coverage changes to its Webex PSTN Toll Dial-In services that include:Webex PSTN Toll Dial-In. Included with Webex Meetings for no additional cost, the service will expand to the countries listed above.Webex PSTN Premium Toll Dial-in. Available through the company’s usage-based Committed Audio offer, the service will expand to an additional nine countries, including China, Indonesia, Kenya, Pakistan, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam.Webex PSTN Toll-Free Dial-in. This service is also available through the company’s usage-based Committed Audio offer and will expand to 14 more countries, including Bahamas, Belize, Botswana, Brunei, Honduras, Malta, Moldova, Monaco, Oman, Paraguay, Peru, Serbia, Trinidad & Tobago, and Turks and Caicos.Cisco Releases Headset Management ApplicationMoving out of the meeting room and into the office, Cisco last week also announced the launch of CUCM 12.5, an integrated headset management application. Coaching is a particularly valuable application for the new offering. “The reality is most sales managers’ days are filled to capacity, which pushes all coaching to the bottom of the priority list,” said Joe Caprio, VP of sales at Chorus, stated in the company’s announcement. “This can negatively impact a rep’s growth, quota and even retention at the company since 60% of sellers say they’ll leave an organization if their manager is a poor coach.” NEC Enhances SV9000 Series PlatformOn the platform side, enterprise communications and IT solutions provider NEC Corporation of America has rolled out a series of enhancements to its Univerge SV9000 series. Optimized for the meeting room, the NV-32-H is a multi-stream HDMI encoder/decoder that provides high-quality (up to 4K60 4:4:4) video and distribution across a standard gigabit infrastructure. Additionally, the device is software definable as either a video encoder or decoder and can be remotely managed and monitored, according to the company. No Jitter Roll: Five for Friday Ryan Daily September 13, 2019 A look at the latest news coming from Slack, Fuze, Front, Numonix, and LogMeIn. The enhancements include collaboration applications delivered for both on-premises and cloud-based deployments, a more powerful processor, more memory, and enhanced security features, NEC announced. Additionally, NEC has rolled out a series of enhancements to its DT900 and DT500 terminals, which include an enhanced range of wideband audio, gigabit network support, and touch display options. QSC Releases Network Video EndpointWrapping up this week’s news roundup, QSC, has launched its Q-SYS NV Series (NV-32-H) network video endpoint, a native peripheral for its Q-SYS Ecosystem.

Tourists invited to dance at New Credit

Powwows are traditionally about artistic vendors, fair food and tourists taking photos of native dancers who don colourful regalia and dance to compete for points.But the Three Fires Homecoming held each year at the nearby New Credit reserve is a bit different.“I liken this powwow to a homecoming for our visitors as well,” said elected Chief Stacy Laforme at the event, “because they can reconnect here as well, even if they’ve never been here before.“They reconnect to nature and music and things that they’ve forgotten.”During the first welcoming dance, Laforme, accompanied by Ontario Regional Chief RoseAnne Archibald, waved in tourists and visitors from the stands around the dance circle and those in shorts and T-shirts shuffled along with the intricately dressed dancers around a great arbour set in the forest near the council house.“I don’t think we’ve ever had such a large crowd all dancing with us at once,” said Laforme. “It was great to see.”The elected chief said his council recently dropped the “new” from the band name and is now just the Mississaugas of the Credit, a name that developed from the mid-1700s when French fur traders did business with band members and found them reliable when it came to extending credit.Laforme said these days, the goal is to try and reconnect with other Anishinabe nations to form a wider family.“Our communities have come so far apart. We need an alliance and then we will have a really strong voice in Canada.”Politics aside, band residents, extended family who joined in the event, and visitors danced around a new wooden arbour, designed and facilitated by University of Waterloo students in the forested area behind the council house on the reserve.The dancers included bare-chested young men, young girls in jingle dresses that rattled with every step, hoop dancers and those with regalia made of colourful plastic ribbons.Standing out as she moved sedately around the ring was Nikki Sargent from Lac Seul, northeast of Dryden.“This regalia,” she says, pointing to her blindingly white outfit of leathers, feathers and beads, “weighs about 40 pounds.”Elsewhere on the grounds vendors did a brisk business in traditional foods like strawberry juice, Indian tacos, corn soup and scones, along with fair favourites such as pogo sticks, poutine, lemonade and freezies.But the powwow is also a chance for area artisans to show off their talents and a chance for visitors to find a hand-made belt, pair of moccasins, purse, shirt or custom artwork.Jerrilyn Russell ignores the shoppers in favour of focusing on her latest work, etching a drawing into a mug, all without a stencil or guide.“She sees the finished product before she starts,” says her Six Nations mom, Dawn Russell.“Most people can’t freehand a project like that but she’s got a gift. She’s been like this from the beginning.”Like many Indigenous youngsters, Jerrilyn was drawn to beadwork when she was an adolescent but, when she was around 15, she started to attend powwows and was inspired by seeing other artists’ works.Through a Hamilton program, she’s developing a business doing woodburning and glass etching and beadwork.“I like to bring my culture into a modern aspect,” she says.Last year’s powwow drew about 3,000 people and about 150 dancers, said an organizer from the New Credit Cultural committee.It was expected that this year’s event, with sunshine but temperate heat, drew even more.SGamble@postmedia.com@EXPSGamble read more

At 1 billion more per year vaccines can save 10 million lives

Ten million additional lives could be saved through child and maternal immunization between 2006-2015 at an average annual cost of $1 billion, according to a new study by the UN World Health Organization (WHO) and the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF).The estimated $2.5 billion current annual spending on immunization in the poorest countries would need to increase to $3.5 billion by 2010 and $4 billion by 2015 to reach this goal, according to the study presented to last week’s meeting of the Global Alliance for Vaccine and Immunization (GAVI) Partners in New Delhi, India.“Immunization is one of the best values for public health investment today: adequate resources and the right strategies lead to concrete results,” WHO Director-General Lee Jong-wook said.“We have achieved much progress already through immunization, but much more can and should be done. WHO, through GAVI and with partners such as UNICEF, is looking to achieve a massive impact in lives saved through immunization over the next decade,” he added. The new study, following on the WHO/UNICEF Global Immunization Vision and Strategy adopted this spring, lays out a number of goals such as raising immunization coverage levels to 90 per cent and reducing vaccine-preventable illness and deaths by two-thirds by 2015. If countries achieve these goals, by 2015, more than 70 million children who live in the world’s poorest countries will receive each year life-saving vaccines against the following diseases: tuberculosis, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, measles, rubella, yellow fever, haemophilus influenzae type B, hepatitis B, polio, rotavirus, pneumococcus, meningococcus, and Japanese encephalitis.“Immunization is critical in reducing overall child deaths. This new study shows that we can achieve a significant reduction in deaths due to vaccine-preventable diseases with a modest increase in funds,” UNICEF Executive Director Ann M. Veneman said. “Of the more than 10 million children under five who die every year, an estimated 2.5 million are dying from diseases that can be prevented with currently available or new vaccines.”The poorest countries currently finance, on average, one-third of their immunization expenses. Until they can take on a greater proportion of the expenses, it is in the interest of resource-rich countries to cover some of the long-term costs. In an interconnected global community, there is increasing vulnerability to the spread of disease, making immunization even more critical. read more

Big Game features winning teams for a change

BERKELEY, Calif. — The annual Big Game between Stanford and California always comes with the pageantry and intensity befitting a rivalry between two schools less than an hour apart.This year’s showdown features something that has been a little unusual over the past few decades: two successful teams.When the Golden Bears (7-4, 4-4 Pac-12) host the Cardinal (7-4, 5-3) on Saturday it will mark just the second time in the past 27 seasons that both Bay Area schools come into the game with at least seven wins.“It’s always better when both teams have winning records, both teams are going to bowl games, both teams are excited about this game, knowing that one will finish ahead that’s a positive,” Stanford coach David Shaw said. “Justin Wilcox has a lot of respect in coaching circles and he’s done a great job of building that team across the bay with toughness and athleticism. It should be an exciting game.”The teams have traded runs of success over the years, with Stanford being the dominant force the past decade, winning eight straight meetings for the longest winning streak by either school in a series that began in the 1800s.Cal’s last win came in 2009, which was the only other time since 1991 that both teams had seven wins at the time of the showdown. But in Wilcox’s second year, the Bears are a vastly different team than they’ve been in the past with a defence that has been dominant at times.Cal has held its last five opponents to 21 points or less and the defence forced five turnovers and scored two TDs in last week’s win over Colorado.“I feel like every guy on the defence, every position group has a good understanding of the defence and where they fit,” said safety Ashtyn Davis, who had two interceptions and a touchdown last week. “It’s made us much better in every aspect of the game.”Here are some other things to watch:DELAYED GAME: This matchup was originally scheduled for Nov. 17 but was postponed two weeks because smoke in the Bay Area from a wildfire about 150 miles away was at a dangerous level. Both teams already had a full week of preparation before the game was pushed back and spent this extra week just tinkering with the game plan.“It’s just trying to focus like it’s the first time so that you’re that much more prepared for when the game comes Saturday,” Stanford offensive lineman A.T. Hall said. “There’s a whole new game film to break down.”JJ’S JUMP BALLS: Stanford’s best offence has been having K.J. Costello throw the ball up to JJ Arcega-Whiteside and letting the physical receiver come down with the catch or draw a penalty. Arcega-Whiteside has caught 14 TD passes, tying the school record set by Pro Football Hall of Famer James Lofton in 1977. Arcega-Whiteside needs four TD catches in the final two games to tie the conference record set by Washington’s Mario Bailey in 1991.“He has long arms and he’s got really strong, strong hands,” Wilcox said. “The contested catches he makes are pretty impressive. When they get into the red zone, they keep throwing it to him.”MILESTONE CHASE: Bears running back Patrick Laird has rushed for 816 yards this season and scored nine TDs. With 184 yards in the final two games of the season, Laird can become just the third player in Cal history with two 1,000-yard seasons in his career, joining Marshawn Lynch and Russell White, who did it three times.“He’s a good player,” Stanford linebacker Bobby Okereke said. “He’s smart, he’s savvy, he’s real patient back there.”CALIFORNIA KINGS: The Cardinal have already beaten L.A. rivals UCLA and Southern California and can sweep their three in-state conference opponents for the third time in four years by beating the Bears. Stanford also swept the three in 2015 and ’16 and has a 22-4 record against those schools during Shaw’s tenure. The Cardinal also beat San Diego State and UC Davis in the nonconference season, giving them four wins against in-state schools.___More AP college football: https://apnews.com/Collegefootball and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25Josh Dubow, The Associated Press read more

Holles Street board reendorses deal to move maternity hospital

first_img Short URL Wednesday 26 Apr 2017, 9:20 PM Image: 26 15:56: Updated 9.20pmTHE BOARD OF the national maternity hospital at Holles Street has passed a motion to re-endorse the agreement it reached with St Vincent’s Healthcare Group (SVHG) last November.There has been growing controversy about the issue in recent days, with fears the Sisters of Charity, the principal shareholder in the SVHG, would influence the type of procedures carried out at the new hospital, which is set to be built on the same campus as St Vincent’s Hospital in Dublin 4.In a statement released following the meeting tonight, the board said: “This agreement provides that the clinical, financial and operational independence of the national maternity hospital at Elm Park shall be enshrined in its memorandum and articles of association and all related legal agreements.” Source: RTÉ News/Twitter Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article http://jrnl.ie/3358663 By Gráinne Ní Aodha Image: 26 15:56: 29,410 Views center_img Apr 26th 2017, 9:20 PM Can’t watch video? Click here. Earlier, Health Minister Simon Harris said the use of a compulsory purchase order (CPO) to buy the site at St Vincent’s Hospital “is not the ideal solution by any way, manner or means” to the controversy.The Wicklow TD said he did not want to say anything that would “further inflame the situation”, stating that he has called for a “period of calm” over the next month.The Sisters of Charity are to be given ownership of the hospital in return for providing the site.Labour TD Alan Kelly has suggested that a CPO could be used by the government to take control of the site. The idea was also raised by former master of the national maternity hospital (NMH) Dr Peter Boylan.Factfind: Could compulsory purchase be used for the maternity hospital and what would it cost?>However, speaking to reporters today, Harris said:We don’t need to be caught up in potential legal difficulties for a large number of years. We also have to remember the site is being donated free of charge.The issue was also discussed at today’s Cabinet meeting, where both Minister of State for Disabilities Finian McGrath and Children’s Minister Katherine Zappone said the hospital should be built on the St Vincent’s site.Harris said he informed his Cabinet colleagues today that he wishes to the use the “window of calm” to tease out the issues of concern.The issue of religious interferences is dealt with in black and white in the agreement … We have an agreement, that is the heads of an agreement, we need it in contractual and legal obligations, and I am asking for a month to tease through those issues. Holles Street board re-endorses deal to move maternity hospital Meanwhile, Health Minister Simon Harris said the compulsory purchase of the site is ‘not the solution’. What I am very clear of is the law of the land will apply at the National Maternity Hospital. The board of Holles Street has passed a motion re-endorsing the agreement for it to move to the St Vincent’s Hospital campus pic.twitter.com/VzOEgu1cpc— RTÉ News (@rtenews) April 26, 2017 A government source said there should be “no ambiguity” that the hospital will be built on the St Vincent’s Hospital site. “It is absolutely going ahead,” they added.Dr Rhona MahonyThe Master of the National Maternity Hospital also defended the decision to relocate the new hospital on grounds owned by a religious order, saying that they will have complete control over medical procedures and governance.On Morning Ireland today, Dr Rhona Mahony said the hospital will be independent and retain their medical practices without religious interference.It’s the board’s duty to do their best for women and babies. We will not mention any religious, ethnic or other distinction [in hospital governance].“We will have the termination of pregnancy just as we do today. The nuns will not be involved.”When asked about the clear dispute over governance, Mahony said they are the first of the colocations, but the integrity of their services and autonomy over them will be protected.“This is a separate company and it is very likely that in time that there will be a lease arrangement, [ownership over the building is] a technical issue over land.This hospital will be entirely independent – it’s black and white agreement.“The nuns do not want to run this hospital.It will be an independent hospital with an independent board. We will practice contraception, IVF, termination of pregnancy to save a woman’s life and in the future, we will expand services according to the law.Boylan’s resignationDr Peter Boylan, a former master of the maternity hospital, was asked to resign from Holles Street’s board at the weekend after he voiced his concerns about the colocation.This was decried as a silencing of opinion, but Mahony denies that was the reason, saying it was an issue of “corporate governance, not over opinion”.She said the vote to colocate with the Sisters of Charity was overwhelming: “25 voted in favour, one voted against and three abstentions”.There was no division in the National Maternity Hospital in relation to this move. Peter Boylan might have voted against if he disagreed.She added that the new maternity hospital was important: “We are practicing medicine in the 21st century in a hospital that is crumbling.”With reporting by Christina Finn and Órla RyanRead: Here is the deal reached by St Vincent’s and Holles Street over the new National Maternity HospitalFactfind: Could compulsory purchase be used for the maternity hospital and what would it cost? 234 Comments Share398 Tweet Email1 last_img read more

City managers pay rises across county

first_imgClick here to access The Columbian’s database of public-employee salaries in Clark County.Vancouver City Manager Eric Holmes’ 3.5-percent salary increase raised some eyebrows earlier this month. It turns out Holmes has plenty of company. In fact, his pay bump is not the highest among local top city administrators.After being frozen in recent years due to the economic swoon, salaries of top city leaders across Clark County are beginning to thaw in 2012.Four of the five city CEOs in Clark County will receive pay increases in 2012, whether through planned merit increases or pre-negotiated raises secured for city employees across the board. These raises do not include cost of living adjustments, which remain frozen in order to save money.Clark County commissioners will decide in January whether County Administrator Bill Barron will receive a raise in 2012. Barron currently makes $174,252 a year and receives an additional 7.25 percent for a deferred compensation program.Awarding pay raises to public leaders is important because it lessens the chance of a more affluent city or private company poaching them and, symbolically, makes the employees feel more appreciated, said Mark Stephan, a political science professor at Washington State University Vancouver.last_img read more

Dunbar Brooks 63 Leaves a Lifetime of Service

first_imgDunbar BrooksDunbar Brooks, the first African American president of the Baltimore County School board died Aug 17 at 63.Brooks also served as president of the Maryland State Board of Education from 2007-2008 and worked extensively with the Baltimore Metropolitan Council (BMC), where he rose from a planner to the Director of Data Development.“I am grateful for the opportunity to know Dunbar,” Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz said. The two men met about 20 years ago, when Kamenetz was campaigning for the Baltimore County Council.Kamenetz said Dunbar was an advocate for the needs of African Americans and for the needs of Baltimore County’s children. He said that Dunbar always wanted to make sure that all children were challenged, and didn’t accept excuses.“He did not tolerate substandard expectations for any child. He was all about performance and outcome and raising the bar. I was always struck by that as sending the appropriate signal,” he said.Kamenetz issued a statement, Aug. 19, reflecting on the contributions Brooks made to his community as well as ordering that the flag outside of the County courthouse be lowered to half mast.The memory I have most of him is his perseverance for kids and education,” said Larry Klimovitz, executive director of the Baltimore Metropolitan Council. “Trying to be a mentor and an advocate for education for kids in the Baltimore region.”“He always treated those around him with respect, which earned others’ respect, and he made decisions based on his high ethical standards throughout his life and career,” the BMC released in a statement. “He spent much of his long career gathering pertinent U.S. Census, population, household and employment data for the Cooperative Forecasting Group to use in producing the travel demand model, economic research and for long-term transportation planning. “He chaired a lot of committees and did a lot of work with the region’s elected officials according to Klimovitz.“He was an incredibly good natured, kind-hearted community-minded individual. A statesman by every definition of the world. If I had a flag, I’d fly it at half mast for him.”Brooks is survived by his wife of 37 years, Edythe, a daughter, Cheryl Renee Brooks of Dundalk; a stepson, Gary Arthur Young of Vienna, Va.; a stepdaughter, Tracey Young Williams of Dundalk and three grandchildren.Services for Dunbar will begin with a wake, 10 a.m., Aug. 26 at his home church, St. Matthew UM Church, 105 Main Street in Turners Station, followed by the funeral at 11 a.m. A memorial service will be held 6 p.m., Sept. 19 in the theater of the Community College of Baltimore County, Dundalk campus.last_img read more

Air Seychelles records profitability in 2015

first_imgAir Seychelles has reported its fourth year of profitability in a row, with net profits of $2.1 million in 2015, on revenues of $105.4 million.Audited by KPMG, these financial statements also reflect growth in passenger traffic and strong cargo volumes. A total of 522,873 passengers travelled with the airline in 2015, 22% more than in 2014.Air Seychelles passenger carrying capacity, measured in Available Seat Kilometres (ASKs), increased by seven percent to 1.7 billion by the end of 2015. Despite this increase the airline’s seat load factor rose by six percentage points from 60% in 2014 to 66% in 2015.Cargo services continue to be a major area of growth for Air Seychelles, with the airline carrying 4,415 tonnes of freight, primarily driven by wide body operations on Johannesburg and Paris routes.Roy Kinnear, Chief Executive Officer of Air Seychelles, said, “We are proud to have been able to deliver on our mandate, which was to achieve strong growth, to become the region’s leading carrier and, most importantly, to do so as a commercially viable and profitable enterprise, while remaining one of the key drivers of economic growth in  Seychelles.”Joël Morgan, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Transport and Chairman of Air Seychelles, said, “The profit is another wonderful result for our national airline and for the future of aviation in Seychelles and the Indian Ocean region. We will continue to consolidate Air Seychelles position by making investments that will allow the airline to continue on its current trajectory of further growth.”Of the total passengers carried, 30% were contributed by partner airlines, generating 41% of Air Seychelles’ passenger revenue, demonstrating the importance of growth through partnerships.Air Seychelles’ growth has created a significant number of new jobs for Seychellois nationals.

first_img Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Bureau of Economic Analysis Investors Jobs Labor Department Lenders & Servicers Processing Service Providers Unemployment 2012-08-03 Mark Lieberman Economy Surprises With 163,000 New Jobs in July Share August 3, 2012 412 Views center_img in Data, Government, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicing The nation added a surprising 163,000 jobs in July but the unemployment rate ticked up to 8.3 percent as the number of people working actually declined, the “”Labor Department””:http://www.dol.gov/ reported Friday.[IMAGE]At the same time, June’s paltry job gains ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô originally reported at 80,000 ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô were reduced to 64,000 while May’s job numbers edged up to 87,000 from 77,000.Economists expected payrolls to grow by 100,000 and the unemployment rate to remain at 8.2 percent.Average weekly hours remained 34.5 and average hourly earnings rose to $19.77 from $19.75, continuing pressure on household incomes.While the increase in the unemployment rate was disappointing, an alternative measure showed even more strain. The employment-population ratio which measures the number of people employed against the entire over-16 population, without qualifying definitions used to determine “”unemployment”” dropped to 58.4 percent. The inverse of the ratio ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô 41.6 percent ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô represents the share of the over-16 population without jobs. At the onset of the recession in December 2007, the employment-population ratio was 62.7 percent and when the recession officially ended in June 2009 it was 59.4.The other widely followed alternative measure of employment which includes discouraged workers and others “”marginally attached to the labor force”” rose to 15.0 percent in July from 14.9 percent in June.The average duration of unemployment fell to 38.8 weeks in July ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô the lowest since April 2011 — from 39.9 in June.About 40.7 percent of those unemployed have been out of work for more than 27 weeks ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô long-term unemployed ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô down from 41.9 percent in June.However, the number of people unemployed for 5 to 14 weeks rose to 3,092,000 ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô the highest level since last October, hinting at a new wave of unemployment.The increase in the unemployment rate ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô which has stubbornly remained above 8 percent for the 42 months ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô the entire Obama administration ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô was the result of arithmetic, not any fundamental shift in the economy. [COLUMN_BREAK]The number of people unemployed edged up 45,000, Labor estimated, to 12,794,000 but the entire labor force ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô consisting of employed and unemployed individuals contracted by 150,000 as 195,000 fewer people reported themselves as employed. The numerator of equation ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô unemployed ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô went up while the denominator ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô employed plus unemployed ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô went down, so the resulting fraction or percentage increased.BLS uses two separate surveys ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô the establishment survey which tracks jobs and the household survey which tracks employment ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô to develop the report released Friday. Jobs and employment are defined differently in the two surveys.Friday’s report contained a mixed bag of positive and negative signs. Within the establishment survey, the private sector added 172,000 jobs ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô the strongest showing since February ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô led by 49,000 new professional business service sector jobs. But 14,100 of those jobs were temporary again suggesting employers don’t necessarily have confidence to make permanent additions to staff.The education and health sector which shed 6,000 jobs in June added 38,000 in July ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô half in the heal sector. Education and health had, until June, been a consistent source of new jobs, adding an average of 39,000 jobs per month from June 2011 through May of this year.The leisure and hospitality sector also added 27,000 jobs and the retail sector, which lost 3,200 jobs in June, added 6,700 in July. The retail and leisure and hospitality sector are the two lowest paying industry sectors. Virtually all the leisure and hospitality jobs in the food service sector reflecting summer staffing at restaurants.The reading for housing and real estate was also mixed. According to the report there were 1,000 feewr construction jobs in July than in June.Residential building jobs grew by 5,800 but the number of residential specialty trade contractor construction jobs fell 3,100. While financial sector jobs were up 1,000 in July, the number of real estate jobs (included in that sector) dropped and “”depositary credit intermediation”” jobs ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô underwriters ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô dropped by 1,100.The payroll report was also affected by a strike of utility workers in New York City. Jobs are only included in the payroll report if positions are paid during the week of the month including the 12th calendar day of the month. About 9,000 Con Edison workers were on strike in New York in July but have since returned to work, which will boost the August payroll report.The number of manufacturing jobs rose 25,000, the strongest gain since March led by 12,500 new auto jobs.Government remained a drag on payrolls, shedding 9,000 jobs in July with 6,000 jobs cut by state governments.last_img read more
