  • Ontario Real Estate Association says procandidate ads were put up in error

    first_imgTORONTO – The Ontario Real Estate Association is pulling four election-focused billboard advertisements as it steps away from political advocacy amid a spat with the Toronto Real Estate Board.OREA said Tuesday that four billboards supporting two candidates in the provincial election were put up “in error” and will be removed.The real estate association said the signs were accidentally erected after Outfront Media, a marketing company hired by OREA, missed an email requesting that they not be posted, OREA vice-president Matthew Thornton said TuesdayOne billboard reads “Taras Natyshak – A strong local voice for Essex homeowners” and other three read “Charles Sousa – A strong local voice for Mississauga-Lakeshore homeowners.”Sousa is the Liberal government’s finance minister and Natyshak is a New Democrat member of the legislature.He said OREA voted last week to step away from some of the political activism it had planned for the provincial election campaign and put more focus on advocating for affordable home ownership.“It was a really unfortunate error…It was something that shouldn’t have been up in the first place,” said Thornton on Tuesday. “As of today, (the billboards) should be covered up.”Outfront did not immediately respond to a request for comments.The billboard error comes amid increasing scrutiny on OREA, whose chief executive is former Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak.In a letter obtained by The Canadian Press last week, Toronto Real Estate Board President Tim Syrianos slammed OREA for endorsing politicians with “member dues without member’s knowledge and buy-in.”“We are collectively mandated to work with whatever party is elected to produce policies that benefit our members, consumers and our industry. Our members should be free to support whomever they choose and it would be arrogant to align with any one party or candidate that may conflict with the beliefs of members,” the letter said.“For these reasons, and with all due respect, we request and advise that OREA avoid taking overt political positions by supporting individual politicians.”OREA and TREB have repeatedly declined to comment on the specifics of the letter, referring The Canadian Press to a joint statement released May 11 that said the letter is “not reflective of the long standing and positive relationship” between the associations. They said they hope to resolve the discussions “amicably and internally.”On Tuesday, OREA and TREB again referred The Canadian Press to the statement, but Thornton revealed more details about OREA’s “Keep the Dream Alive” campaign, which is meant to raise awareness around the lack of affordability young people are facing in the housing market.The billboards were part of the campaign until the board axed them because it wanted to ensure it was putting the larger campaign first, Thornton said.As part of the campaign, he said OREA will still be involved in candidate debates and surveys, advocacy work around home ownership and the lack of housing supply, and will engage with politicians at Queen’s Park when the provincial government returns to session. OREA will also launch digital advertising in spring and the fall.OREA has had to adjust its mandate after it lost the ability to provide educational courses to realtors after December 2020, when the Real Estate Council of Ontario put out a request for proposals to find a new body to administer such courses.Last April, it announced that Humber College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning and learning management company NIIT Canada would take over realtor education.last_img read more

  • Opposition Parties PJD Responsible for MoroccoEgypt Media Tension

    Marrakech – Several Moroccan opposition parties are accusing the current leading party the Justice and Development Party (PJD) and the Moroccan media for the recent escalation of tensions between Morocco and Egypt. They hold the PJD responsible forthe Egyptian media campaign against Morocco.The Secretary Generals of severalopposition parties, including the Independence, Authenticity and Modernity party, the Socialist Union of Popular Forces, and the Constitutional Union party, held an urgent meeting on Monday to discuss the “the artificial media tension between Morocco and Egypt”, according to a press release.During the meeting, the parties reportedly voiced their “Wonder about the artificial sabotage at the media levelofthe relations between the Kingdom of Morocco and the Arab Republic of Egypt, which have been always linked by cooperation and mutual respect.”The opposition added that it “strongly condemns that some have adopted rumors and exploited the media in order to poison the relationship and sow confusion and discord between Morocco and Egypt.” The opposition also “reaffirms the depth of the special historical relations between the two brotherly people and their leadership, as there is a strong desire to develop the relationship in the economic, political, and cultural fields.”The opposition parties heavily criticized the way that the PJD dealt with media campaigns between the two countries, and ultimately held the party responsible for the tensionsbecause it leads the government.“The opposition parties express disapproval of the irresponsible government’s treatment of this artificial tension, especially of the party that leads the government, which is known for narrow partisan opportunism.”Moroccan national television channels recently aired reports that describe the Egyptian president, Abdel Fattah El Sisi, as the leader of a military coup. Many consider the report to bearesponse to Egyptian media’s campaign against Morocco.Some Egyptian media believe the report to be an attempt by the supporters of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood to damage the relations between Morocco and Egypt.Edited by Timothy Filla read more

  • Economists survey 34 expect a US recession in 2021

    WASHINGTON — A number of U.S. business economists appear sufficiently concerned about the risks of some of President Donald Trump’s economic policies that they expect a recession in the U.S. by the end of 2021.Thirty-four per cent of economists surveyed by the National Association for Business Economics, in a report being released Monday, said they believe a slowing economy will tip into recession in 2021. That’s up from 25% in a survey taken in February. Only 2% of those polled expect a recession to begin this year, while 38% predict that it will occur in 2020.The economists have previously expressed concern that Trump’s tariffs and higher budget deficits could eventually dampen the economy.The Trump administration has imposed tariffs on goods from many key U.S. trading partners — from China and Europe to Mexico and Canada. Officials maintain that the tariffs, which are taxes on imports, will help the administration gain more favourable terms of trade. But U.S. trading partners have simply retaliated with tariffs of their own.Trade between the U.S. and China, the two biggest global economies, has plunged. Trump decided last Wednesday to postpone until Dec. 15 tariffs on about 60% of an additional $300 billion of Chinese imports — granting a reprieve from a planned move that would have extended duties to nearly everything the U.S. buys from China.The financial markets signalled the possibility of a U.S. recession last week, adding to concerns over the ongoing trade tensions and word from Britain and Germany that their economies are shrinkingThe economists surveyed by the NABE were skeptical about prospects for success of the latest round of U.S.-China trade negotiations. Only 5% predicted that a comprehensive trade deal would result, 64% suggested a superficial agreement was possible, and nearly one quarter expected nothing to be agreed upon by the two countries.The 226 respondents, who work mainly for corporations and trade associations, were surveyed between July 14 and Aug. 1. That was before the White House announced 10% tariffs on the additional $300 billion of Chinese imports, the Chinese currency dipped below the seven-yuan-to-$1 level for the first time in 11 years, and the Trump administration formally labeled China a currency manipulator.As a whole, the business economists’ recent responses have represented a rebuke of the Trump administration’s overall approach to the economy.Still, for now, most economic signs appear solid. Employers are adding jobs at a steady pace, the unemployment rate remains near a 50-year low, and consumers are optimistic. U.S. retail sales figures out last Thursday showed that they jumped in July by the most in four months.The survey showed a steep decline in the percentage of economists who found the $1.5 trillion in tax cuts over the next decade “too stimulative” and likely to produce higher budget deficits that should be reduced, to 51% currently from 71% in August 2018.The Associated Press read more

  • DR Congo presidential contenders to receive use of UN helicopters for campaigning

    The Mission, known by its French acronym MONUC, has made the helicopters available to the DRC’s Independent Electoral Commission (IEC), UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters today in New York.Congolese voters go to the polls on 29 October after President Joseph Kabila and Vice-President Jean-Pierre Bemba obtained the two highest totals of votes during the first round of elections on 30 July. Provincial assembly elections will also be held on the same day.Mr. Dujarric said MONUC decided to release the helicopters after the official campaign period for the run-off round was reduced from 30 days to 15, making it more difficult for the two candidates to traverse the vast African country that is comparable in size to Western Europe.Some 50,000 polling stations will be operating across the DRC, one indication of the scale of the elections, which represent the most complex electoral-assistance ever undertaken by the UN.The elections are the DRC’s first free polls in 45 years and are intended to cement its transition from a disastrous civil war. The six-year conflict, widely considered the most lethal fighting in the world since World War II, cost 4 million lives through combat and attendant disease and hunger. read more

  • Column To restore our financial credibility tough decisions must be taken on

    first_imgAS THE FALLOUT from the Unions’ rejection of the Croke Park 2 deal rumbles on, it is important to take stock of the situation and assess where we are as a country and an economy.Ireland continues to borrow €1.25 billion every month, an amount that is unsustainable at any phase of the economic cycle. Unemployment has increased by 8.2 per cent since the first Croke Park Agreement and would be even higher if it wasn’t for emigration. We must restore our financial credibility and, in order to achieve this, tough decisions must be taken.Alternative solutionThe Government has very limited room for manoeuvre and any alternatives to the proposals put forward by the Labour Relations Commission must be credible and feasible.SIPTU’s suggestions that an off-balance-sheet stimulus programme and increased taxation on the wealthy could be used to reduce the deficit simply do not make sense.The idea for a stimulus programme is based on the belief that the promissory note deal, achieved in February 2013, allows for increased investment and spending. Unfortunately this is not the case; while the promissory deal reduces Ireland’s level of debt repayment in the future it has no impact on the Government’s need for funds now.No money existsIn fact, the Fiscal Advisory Council has said that the impact of this deal only reduces the projected 2015 deficit by 0.6 per cent of GDP. As a result, while it is very welcome, it will have very limited near term impact on budgetary considerations. Essentially, SIPTU is proposing to spend money that does not exist.The idea of increasing taxes on the wealthy is flawed for a number of reasons.Firstly, Ireland’s marginal rate of taxation for those earning over €100,000 is already over 50 per cent. Any further increase in this rate threatens foreign direct investment which in turn reduces job creation. Secondly, what is required is not increased taxation of one group but a broadening of the tax base. This is already being achieved through the Local Property Tax and (eventually) water charges.Our tax systemIreland has one of the most progressive tax systems in the OECD. Seventy-one per cent of all USC, PAYE and PRSI taxes are paid by the top 20 per cent of workers. This is the group that, all being well, will create new jobs in the future.While there are very few alternatives to the spending cuts being sought, there is a corresponding need to stimulate the economy. However, this will not come through the investment of money that doesn’t exist but through measures that support businesses and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in particular.This sector accounts for over 99 per cent of all businesses in the State, employing over 70 per cent of all people. This is the group that should be encouraged to grow and create new jobs. More than anything it is this job creation that will increase the tax take, reduce the pressure on State services and get our economy back onto a sustainable footing.Growing jobs is the way forwardChambers Ireland has recently published An Alternative 10 Point Plan for Micro, Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises. It includes a range of measures that, if implemented, could create in excess of 30,000 jobs. This would have a major impact on any economic recovery.It is essential that the Government and the unions do everything required to achieve agreement over the renegotiated Croke Park deal; a deal that can help in delivering smarter, more productive government services that are focused on cost effective front line delivery at an economically sustainable price. Furthermore, this will ultimately maintain the jobs of all public sector workers.This should be the core agenda; not seeking tax increases to fund a system that we can no longer afford while also taking even more money out of circulation in the economy.The savings it will produce are essential. However, at the same time everything that can be done to support existing businesses must be pursued. Getting people working and getting them off the Live Register will always be a more attractive option that either spending cuts or tax increases. We need to encourage our job creating entrepreneurs, not tax them into leaving the country.Seán Murphy is the Deputy Chief Executive of Chambers Ireland.Read: SIPTU president wants promissory note savings used to avoid public pay cuts>Read: No deal on public pay means no protection against job cuts – Kenny>last_img read more

  • Failed terrorist plot might end up killing off the prospect of inflight

    first_imgLast week’s attempt to detonate inkjet printer cartridges filled with explosives on airplanes heading to the UK and Dubai might not have had any human casualties, but it might still end up killing something off: the ability to use WiFi or mobile phones on airplanes.The bomb in question was set up to allow remote detonation via cell phone, and now security experts are saying that the clamored for ability to use cell phones or WiFi on airplanes might never happen because terrorists could these networks on flights to detonate bombs stored in the luggage hold of the plane. In-flight Wi-Fi “gives a bomber lots of options for contacting a device on an aircraft”, says security expert Roland Alford. He claims that even if ordinary cellphone connections are blocked, it would allow a voice-over-internet connection to reach a handset that might detonate a bomb on a plane.“If it were to be possible to transmit directly from the ground to a plane over the sea, that would be scary,” Alford continued. “Or if a passenger could use a cellphone to transmit to the hold of the airplane he is in, he could become a very effective suicide bomber.”This is just stupid. What these security analysts are saying is that if cell phones or WiFi connections are allowed on planes, it’ll make it easier for terrorists on board the same plane to blog up explosives in the luggage hold. But they can already do this: it’s not like a cell phone (provided the altitude is low enough) is impossible to use on a plane, it’s just that travelers are told not to use them. Terrorists aren’t exactly the kind of fliers who are going to follow the rules, so this provision would only hurt honest travelers.Then again, this is the TSA we’re talking about here: their security theater is all about inconveniencing the innocent traveler against both logic and common sense. My guess is that these security researchers are right, and WiFi and in-plane cell phone use are farther away than ever from being approved.Read more at New Scientistlast_img read more

  • HISD Changes Direction on Superintendent Replacement

    first_img Share The Houston Independent School District will not go forward with plans to replace interim superintendent Grenita Lathan with former superintendent Abelardo Saavedra. Saavedra was HISD’s superintendent from 2004 to 2009, and has recently served as superintendent of South San Antonio ISD. In a 5-4 vote last week, the board tapped Saavedra to take over. The move came as a surprise to several board members and prompted backlash.HISD board members announced Sunday night they would no longer be hiring Saavedra and would address the issue at a press conference Monday. “This is a good outcome for today,” Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner said in a statement on Sunday evening. “But our children need a board with trustees working together, harmoniously, for the good of the children now and in the future.” “People have become impatient with a dysfunctional board,” Turner added. “There is no tolerance for bad behavior, regardless of who the bad actors are, when it comes at the expense of what’s best for our children.”The anticipated announcement that @HoustonISD trustees will reverse course on the appointment of a new interim superintendent is a positive sign. My statement: https://t.co/wim2CfKpKR]— Sylvester Turner (@SylvesterTurner) October 15, 2018Speaking to the rest of the board last week, Trustee Elizabeth Santos expressed frustration at the tone of recent meetings.“This meeting tonight, everything has been chaos, month, after month, after month,” Santos said. “I can’t even listen to my colleagues speak.

  • Wells Fargo CFO to Take Over Wholesale Banking

    first_img Share in Headlines, News, Uncategorized Movers & Shakers Wells Fargo 2014-04-03 Tory Barringer April 3, 2014 478 Views center_img Wells Fargo announced a small shakeup in leadership. Effective May 15, current CFO Timothy J. Sloan will take over a new position as head of the bank’s Wholesale Banking group, with EVP John R. Shrewsberry stepping up to the CFO role.Sloan is a veteran at Wells Fargo, having worked at the bank for 26 years. Before stepping in as CFO in 2011, he was Wells Fargo’s chief administration officer, serving prior to that as head of commercial banking, commercial real estate, and specialized financial services.“There is nobody more suited than Tim to continue our Wholesale Banking business strategy and apply his passion for serving customers to drive new opportunities across an area of the company where he has extensive expertise and abilities,” said John Stumpf, Wells Fargo’s chairman and CEO.As head of Wholesale Banking, Sloan will succeed David A. Hoyt, who has worked 32 years at Wells Fargo, half of which was spent managing the Wholesale Banking business. After stepping down from his position, Hoyt plans to stay at the bank until June 30, at which point he plans to retire.Of his retirement, Hoyt said, “It has been a privilege to have been part of Wells Fargo over the years, and especially through the industry’s largest-ever merger. Wells Fargo has never been stronger or enjoyed more valuable customer relationships than it does today. … I am retiring confident in Wells Fargo’s future and that our wholesale banking customers are in excellent hands.”Meanwhile, Shrewsberry, currently head of Wells Fargo Securities, will assume oversight of the company’s financial management functions, its investment portfolios, and its corporate properties functions as CFO and senior EVP. Prior to his current position, Shrewsberry was head of Wells Fargo Commercial Capital, the successor to a commercial finance company he co-founded that became part of Wells Fargo in 2001. In addition to his current position, he is also a member of the market risk committee, the enterprise risk management committee, and the firm’s management committee.“Given his strong financial background spanning more than 20 years and his proven leadership ability, John is well positioned to lead Well Fargo’s established world-class finance team,” Stumpf said, adding, “Today’s appointments represent a natural evolution of executive responsibilities at our company. They also demonstrate the deep bench of high-caliber leaders at Wells Fargo and the value of rotating them into different roles to effect seamless leadership transitions.” Wells Fargo,Wells Fargo CFO to Take Over Wholesale Bankinglast_img read more
