first_imgREGINA — The Saskatchewan government says the federal carbon tax is killing jobs, but experts and even the province’s trade minister say it’s not that easy to calculate.The government reports that jobs are down in the oil and gas sector by about 1,400 and by another 1,500 in mining compared with July 2018.The province brought in its own tax on excess emissions from heavy industry in January, but consumers became subject to the federal carbon tax in April, because Saskatchewan did not have its own pricing deemed acceptable by Ottawa. The province is taking its challenge of the federal tax to the Supreme Court. At the same time as Saskatchewan voices its concerns, the province reports an increase of more than 12,000 mostly private-sector jobs in the last year.Harrison says job growth and the carbon tax’s effect on employment are not “mutually exclusive.”“The fact that we’ve been creating private-sector jobs outside of the energy sector, outside of the mining sector, speaks to a wonderful entrepreneurial spirit in the province.”Trent Wotherspoon, finance critic for the NDP Opposition, says the government is playing “fast and loose” with an important file and didn’t even factor in potential costs of the carbon tax in its last budget. “You’re not going to be able to directly link exactly to the carbon tax,” Trade Minister Jeremy Harrison told The Canadian Press in a recent interview.“It is killing jobs because it’s making us less competitive.”One of Premier Scott Moe’s arguments against the tax is that it costs jobs.Harrison concedes job losses in the energy sector are not the result of any sole factor, but a confluence of different issues.He points to a lack of new pipelines as well as to federal legislation that overhauls how large energy projects are approved and restricts tankers off the British Columbia coast. He says those things put Canada at a competitive disadvantage compared to other jurisdictions.The carbon tax is another layer, says Harrison, although he adds it’s hard to measure its immediate impact over a short period of time.center_img Alberta comes at the numbers from a different position.The NDP there brought in a provincial carbon tax when it was in power, but Premier Jason Kenney’s United Conservatives got rid of it not long after they won the April election.An email from the Environment Department says economic modelling estimates the repeal will create 6,000 new, full-time private-sector jobs and increase GDP by $1.3 billion.Alberta is also challenging the federal tax, which Ottawa says it will apply to the province in the new year.Some experts say not enough time has passed and not enough research has been done to know what impact federal carbon pricing is having on jobs.Trevor Tombe, an economics professor at the University of Calgary, points to two studies published in recent years that examine British Columbia’s carbon tax.One study concludes the province’s revenue-neutral tax doesn’t hurt employment. It says while jobs in “carbon-intensive and trade-sensitive industries” were affected, employment rose in clean industries.The other study reports between one to two per cent increases in unemployment rates among men with low to medium education levels.“It’s not at all clear that B.C. has had employment losses. Maybe it has if you look in certain specific areas, but it’s not an economy-wide issue,” says Tombe.“Looking at the question in a black-and-white way is probably not the right way for these particular leaders to go about doing it.”He adds that the carbon tax is likely to result in a lower rate of economic growth until it reaches its maximum of $50 a tonne in 2022. He says any action to reduce emissions comes with an economic cost in terms of GDP growth.Brett Dolter, an economics professor at the University of Regina, says statements that the carbon tax is “job-killing” need to be tested.“Any analysis of the impact … would need to consider that 90 per cent of the revenue raised through the carbon tax is returned to households through rebates on their income tax returns,” he wrote in an email.“People will still have money to spend, but they may spend it on goods and service that pollute less, and jobs will shift accordingly.”Stephanie Taylor, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Toshiba buys Hamilton-based manufacturer of custom electric motors by The Canadian Press Posted May 23, 2013 10:36 am MDT HAMILTON – Toshiba International Corp. has agreed to buy the assets of Elettra Technology, a manufacturer of custom industrial electric motors that was born out of a former Canadian subsidiary of Westinghouse.Financial terms of the deal were not immediately available.Elettra’s current employees will operate the business, which will be renamed Toshiba Industrial Products Canada and relocate its manufacturing to a larger, recently renovated plant in Hamilton, the companies said Thursday.Toshiba International of Houston is an 1,800-employee subsidiary of Japanese conglomerate Toshiba Corp..Elettra makes industrial motors and generators as well specialized motors for harsh conditions.The Canadian company was founded in 1996 by two former Hamilton-based employees of Westinghouse Motor Co., Carlo Di Pietro and Joe Aiello.Di Pietro, who is ETI’s president, said the deal is good for both companies.“ETI has a history of excellence in one-off specialty electrical motor production which will enhance Toshiba’s product line, while Toshiba has the efficiencies of a large operation that will improve opportunities here,” Di Pietro said in a statement.Mike Ayers, a senior vice-president of Toshiba International and general manager of its industrial division, said that the deal will “better serve both ETI’s and Toshiba’s customers.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

first_imgIn terms of identity, Good Housekeeping has long presented itself as a relentless consumer advocate. A brand-within-a-brand, the Good Housekeeping Seal has served for more than a century as the gatekeeper of household products that live up to their marketing claims, and is one of the earliest and best-known examples of media brand licensing.But a new century brings with it new challenges and responsibilities for manufacturers of consumer products, as evidenced by the introduction, in 2009, of the Green Good Housekeeping Seal—bestowed upon products whose claims of environmental sensitivity have similarly been vetted by the Good Housekeeping Institute.Now, the magazine is leaning further into its efforts to promote sustainability in the household goods space, announcing the first-ever Good Housekeeping Sustainability Awards, reflecting the brand’s stance that most consumer products are over-packaged, exacerbating waste and harming the environment.“Good Housekeeping has always been about consumer protection and advocacy, helping guide consumers to make the best possible decisions for themselves,” says deputy editor Laurie Jennings, who heads up the Good Housekeeping Institute. “Everyone knows about the importance of recycling, but recycling isn’t the solution; it’s more the solution to a symptom. Packaging feels like the next area where we can focus in a massive way to help solve this problem facing our planet.”To encourage manufacturers to adopt a less wasteful, more minimalist approach to packaging, as well as the use of more recycled and recyclable materials, this year’s jury—consisting of the GH team as well as TerraCycle CEO Tom Szaky and Brown and Wilmanns Environmental managing partner Mike Brown, who helped develop the Green seal—will examine submitted products against criteria such as recyclability and the ratio of product weight to packaging weight. Laurie JenningsIntended to become an annual franchise (“We are 110-percent committed,” says Jennings), this year’s awards will examine products from the cosmetics/personal care and household care/cleaning sectors as well as toys—categories where the issue appears to be most critical—with plans to expand to other types of products in the future.“We get tons of products coming in all the time [at the Institute], and we see the waste that comes from the excess packaging,” she adds. “There’s room for improvement without ignoring things that are necessary for safety or efficacy.”While there exist design- and industry-focused packaging award programs, Jennings says there aren’t many award programs in the U.S. devoted to sustainable packaging, and Good Housekeeping seized an opportunity to make a measurable difference.Asked why, in an age of heightened corporate consciousness, wasteful packaging is still such an issue, Jennings says the answer is complicated. Companies need to work within the confines of their supply chain, and shifting to sustainable packaging can be costly. In other cases, they may fear turning off consumers who prefer or are accustomed to existing packaging.“At the same time, I feel like there’s a move toward simplicity and going back to basics,” she continues. “If we can help guide companies toward learning from others to improve the planet and help people, then that’s a real win for us.”Health advocate Phil Landrigan addresses attendees at the 2nd annual Good Housekeeping “Raise the Green Bar” summit.From a business standpoint, the awards are tied to the brand’s “Raise the Green Bar” summit, an annual event launched last year in response to heightened interest in sustainability among Good Housekeeping readers in recent years. Supported by major sponsors including P&G and Danone as well as the mission-driven cosmetics company Alaffia, the second annual summit, held last week at Hearst Tower, featured talks from journalist Carey Gillam, pediatrician and leading children’s health advocate Philip Landrigan, and actress-turned-environmental activist Alicia Silverstone.Like other franchises, the awards and winners will be promoted online as well as in the magazine’s print issues, with entries due February 28 and winners announced ahead of next year’s green summit.“We have a massive audience of consumers who look to us to help them make decisions,” Jennings adds, “and this is an area where we feel we can help wake up other companies to the fact that this matters.”last_img read more

first_imgDozens of residents turned out to provide public testimony at the Feb. 27 Homer City Council meeting.(Photo: Shahla Farzan / KBBI)Homer City Council heard a resolution on Monday that would have officially expressed the town’s commitment to fighting discrimination and maintaining a safe, inclusive city.Listen nowOver 100 people packed into Cowles Council Chambers and overflowed into the lobby, waiting to testify on a controversial resolution promoting inclusivity.The resolution, which was co-sponsored by Council Members Donna Aderhold, Catriona Reynolds and David Lewis, cited recent violence targeting religious groups, minorities, and the LGBTQ community.It also officially rejected discrimination against any group with regard to “race, religion, ethnicity, gender, national origin, physical capabilities or sexual orientation” and expressed a commitment to creating a safe, inclusive community.The Council rejected the resolution in a 5 to 1 vote, with Council Member Reynolds voting in favor.“I have witnessed people who live in our community who have already had to endure an increase of hate and bullying,” Reynolds said. “When you aren’t [on] the receiving end of abuse because of religion or skin color or sexual orientation, it’s easy to think it doesn’t happen here. But it does happen here.”Before voting, the Council heard three and a half hours of public testimony from just over 90 people. The majority strongly opposed the resolution.“The fact that this room is filled with people that are here in opposition to this resolution should be a reminder to you that you are elected officials,” John Butcher said. “As an elected official, your position can be filled in the next election cycle or sooner if you don’t do your job.”Much of the controversy stemmed from a draft resolution posted to social media, which included several clauses critical of President Trump. Those clauses were removed before Monday’s council meeting.Local business owner Coletta Walker argued the resolution would hurt the town’s image and negatively affect tourism.“You have done a great harm to this community,” Walker said. “I for one am appalled that someone thinks that they need to dictate to me how to be hospitable and community-minded. It is not the responsibility of government to dictate to its people to be kind.”The resolution emphasized the city’s commitment to cooperating with federal agencies in detaining undocumented immigrants, but a number of residents expressed concern that it appeared to be advocating for providing sanctuary.Others voiced support for the resolution, including Lindsay Martin.“I am a Korean-born citizen of the United States who is new to Homer. Positive and welcoming interactions with my fellow Homer citizens make up a majority of my day,” Martin said. “However, the negative experiences I have had are significant enough and based in my ethnic identity that I support this resolution.”Julia Person said she originally thought the resolution was unnecessary and wasn’t planning to give public testimony. What she heard in the audience at last night’s City Council meeting, however, changed her mind.“When I heard people talk about tolerance and then when the word Muslim came up and they made all these derogatory remarks, I realized the illusion of tolerance in this town is very deep,” Person said.Despite the controversy, much of the proposed resolution is already embedded in state and federal law, said Homer resident and lawyer Andy Haas.“This is a Rorschach test. We look at this and we all see different things. As a lawyer, when I look at this, I can tell you that the body of the resolution merely restates the law,” Haas said.Alaska’s criminal code does not define hate crimes as a distinct offense. However, AS 12.55.155 does allow for the possibility of a more severe sentence if a “defendant has knowingly directed the conduct constituting the offense at a victim because of that person’s race, sex, color, creed, physical or mental disability, ancestry or national origin.” Bias due to sexual orientation is not included as an aggravating factor.The next Homer City Council meeting is scheduled for March 13.last_img read more

first_imgvia Guardian Up till now, most in the field have agreed that the most recent evidence of early man hunting animals for meat to eat was at a site in Germany that showed horses being brought down with long spears, likely thrown from trees, approximately 400,000 years ago. They’ve also agreed that early man was almost certainly eating meat before this time, but only from carcasses left over from other hunters such as lions.In this new study, Bunn said that in comparing the types of animals and their ages eaten by lions and other carnivores today with the types of meat that were being eaten by early man, it’s clear that our descendants were not eating leftovers, but were instead going out and getting their own meat.When leopards and lions hunt down and eat the larger species of antelope, for example, they tend to go for the young or old, as they are generally easier to bring down. Evidence at the Tanzania site however shows that early humans were eating such animals that were in their prime. On the other hand, when the big cats go after the smaller species of antelope, they tend to capture those in their prime, while early man seemed to prefer the young and the old. These findings, Bunn said, show very clearly that the animals that early man was eating were not brought down by other animals but were killed by hunting them themselves.The evidence brought forth by Bunn could mean the rewriting of some human evolution theories regarding how it was humans developed such complex brains, and why. Some have suggested it came about as a result of the evolution of social communities and the challenges it created, with early man eating a lot of vegetative material and the odd bit of meat that could be scavenged. If early man was hunting though, that would mean he was using his brain to development new ways to do it more efficiently, particularly if it was done in groups, which would seem the most likely scenario as it generally results in the most success. Citation: Anthropologist pushes back date of first humans hunting for meat to two million years ago (2012, September 26) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-09-anthropologist-date-humans-meat-million.html © 2012 Phys.org New book further supports controversial theory of ‘Man the Hunted’ Explore further (Phys.org)—Henry Bunn, anthropologist from Wisconsin University, speaking at the annual European Society for the study of Human Evolution meeting in Bordeaux this year, has suggested that the date that humans began hunting down large prey for food needs to be pushed back over a million and a half years after studying evidence of carcasses of antelopes, gazelles and wildebeest left behind by Homo habilis at a site in Tanzania. He said evidence there indicates that early man was hunting in an organized fashion some two million years ago. More information: This document is subject to copyright.

first_imgKolkata: West Bengal would shortly issue a notification to regulate the companies involved in direct selling of products in the state, as directed by the Central government, state Consumer Affairs minister Sadhan Pande said on Tuesday. The minister said the department would add certain clauses to the organisations involved in direct selling after thoroughly studying their product base and the line of business.”The Federation of Direct Selling Association (FDSA) had given a requisition to the government of India. The Centre has asked the state governments to accept this by adding certain clauses that suit their economic policies,” Pande said on the sidelines of a conference organised by FICCI CASCADE (Committee Against Smuggling and Counterfeiting Activities Destroying the Economy) here.

We have thoroughly studied the list of products provided by the companies and would issue a notification shortly,” he said. The minister announced that certain definitive clauses would be added so that the consumers do not face any difficulty in buying these products. “Earlier, direct selling was there but we did not have any regulations for the companies involved.

first_imgDrinking water may be better for young athletes than consuming sports drinks, according to scientists who warn that energy beverages can elevate blood pressure and cause cardiac problems in children and teenagers.Many people associate playing sports with having sports drinks as it is what they see professionals do.However, most recreational athletes do not play at an intensity or for a duration that would require their hydration to come with extra sugar and salt. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”Sports drinks can replenish some of what you lost during exercise, but you really need to be exercising for more than 45 minutes to an hour before you would consider that,” said Matthew Silvis, from Pennsylvania State University in the US.”Many of our kids are not doing enough to warrant it,” said Silvis.With increasing rates of childhood obesity, having kids chug sports drinks loaded with extra sugar as they exercise is not recommended, researchers said. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive”Kids and adolescents really should not be using these drinks. Water is the best method of hydration,” said Katie Gloyer from Penn State.Young people who sip on sports drinks as a regular drink without physical activity also run the risk of weight gain and tooth decay from the added sugar.Then there are energy drinks, which some professional athletes use to boost performance and gain a competitive edge by providing them with caffeine and other stimulants to increase focus and prolong their attention span. However, Gloyer does not even recommend those to the adult, professional athletes. For children and adolescents, energy drinks can be downright dangerous.The beverages, which are not regulated, can contain several servings of harmful products in one container and easily exceed the amount of caffeine and other stimulants that are considered to be safe.That can elevate blood pressure and cause cardiac problems such as palpitations and arrhythmias, not to mention giving the user headaches, an upset stomach, and a general jittery or nervous feeling.Silvis said the focus really should be on water and making sure kids are properly hydrated during exercise.”If they are playing 30- or 45-minute halves, they should have a water break and maybe add fresh orange slices or a granola bar to add a bit of sugar and/or protein at an appropriate level,” he suggested.For post-workout recovery, plain old chocolate milk works just as well – if not better – than the fancy recovery drinks now on the market.”Chocolate milk has the perfect combination of fat, proteins and carbohydrates that you want to get back into your system,” Silvis said. Of course, if the goal of exercise is weight loss, water still reigns king, he said. “Otherwise you can end up drinking more calories than you burned while exercising,” Silvis said.last_img read more

first_imgOn Monday afternoon, Costa Rica’s Public Security Ministry and the Environment and Energy Ministry (MINAE) announced an agreement to allow lookout posts to be installed in national parks along Costa Rica’s borders, according to a press release.Public Security Minister Mario Zamora said the posts in Tortugero Conservation Area, Caño Negro National Wildlife Refuge, and Tamborcito wetlands, among other protected areas, were not in response to recent news stories about threats against park rangers in places like the Osa Peninsula or Limón.Rather, it has more to do with Costa Rica’s panache for conservation: “For the first time, the land where we need to build these outposts is on land controlled by MINAE,” Zamora said, adding that there was an urgent need to improve security infrastructure along Costa Rica’s borders.In a press release, Zamora highlighted the need to guard the nearly 100 acres under protection from a conservation and security perspective. According to the public security minister, the outposts will be paid for out of the ministry’s budget and staffed by National Police.

THE CANADIAN PRESS/ AP-Photo by Richard Shotwell/Invision/AP center_img TORONTO – Seth Rogen says it was difficult to find a happy medium between Alzheimer’s disease awareness and raunchy jokes on his new Netflix special “Hilarity for Charity.”While skits and bits are mostly his style, the Vancouver-raised comedian wasn’t simply hoping to crack up audiences, but also raise money for a crippling neurodegenerative disease that has affected his family.“I don’t pretend it’s not an odd balance to strike,” the actor says of filming the star-studded variety show, which debuted on the streaming service earlier this month.“But it’s the only one we know how to attempt to strike, really, because we’re comedians.”Rogen isn’t new to drumming up support to fight Alzheimer’s.He and his wife Lauren Miller Rogen launched the Hilarity for Charity fundraiser six years ago after her mother was diagnosed with the disease. The organization says it has raised more than US$7.5 million since it was founded.But the comedy showcase was never before recorded for broadcast, which meant bringing Netflix and its global audience into the loop would raise expectations.Rogen had to find a way to balance both sides of his personality — speaking about what matters to him, while also giving plenty of space to the stoner guy viewers have grown to love in movies like “Knocked Up” and “Pineapple Express.”“Hilarity for Charity” offers stage time for the cause. Rogen and his wife speak candidly about caring for her mother and their goal to help other families who are struggling to support their own relatives.But every sentimental moment is answered by joke, including plenty of weed humour which starts with an entire sketch dedicated to vape-smoking members of the male anatomy.There’s also a flurry of guests, including the Muppets as well as comedians Tiffany Haddish and Sarah Silverman who champion the cause before the night’s over.“Once me and Lauren dug an emotional hole we had to be able to find our way out of it as well,” Rogen said.“And that’s why you have Kermit the Frog around.”Rogen hopes all that star power puts Alzheimer’s in the pop culture sphere where he says it needs to be.“(We’re) hopefully making it a part of the conversation in the way it hasn’t been before, and maybe causing people to react towards it in a way they haven’t before,” he said.“Only if the culture is dictating that it is a problem that needs to be addressed will it become a problem that is addressed.”Early reaction on social media suggests his goals for this year’s “Hilarity for Charity” are being accomplished, he said.“I’ve seen an overwhelming amount of people reaching out saying they either knew nothing or now they do know something about it,” Rogen added.“Or they have it in their lives and they thought they were alone and they had no mechanism to share their experience with people. Now they felt maybe they do.”Follow @dfriend on Twitter.last_img read more
