Saudi oil cuts deeper than promised IEA

first_imgParis: Saudi Arabia has slashed its oil production by more than promised as part of a pact to boost oil prices, the International Energy Agency said Thursday, while warning of mixed signals for global demand. In its latest monthly oil market report, the Paris-based IEA said production by OPEC kingpin Saudi Arabia dropped to its lowest level in two years in March after the cartel agreed to cuts with Russia and other ex-Soviet states. However the IEA warned that demand fell in developed OECD countries by 0.3 million barrels per day (mbd) in the last three months of 2018 — “the first such fall for any quarter since the end of 2014”. OECD demand “is likely to have fallen again” in the first quarter of this year, it added, “due to weakness in some European economies, with perhaps more to come if there is a disorderly Brexit”. While demand in China, India and the United States grew, the OECD warned that “the oil market shows signs of tightening” amid “mixed signals” over the global economic outlook. In recent months the forecasts for global economic growth have been trimmed back on concerns about the impact of trade disputes, which come as export powerhouse China has been experiencing slower rates of expansion. OPEC production meanwhile fell by 0.55 mbd in March to 30.13 mbd — a four-year low — largely due to cuts in Saudi Arabia and crisis-hit Venezuela, the IEA said. Venezuela is an OPEC member but exempt from the cuts as it struggles with political turmoil, sanctions and repeated power blackouts. After a production glut lead to prices dropping last year, OPEC members and allies including Russia agreed in December to trim production. OPEC states have complied by 153 percent to their pledged production cuts made under the so-called Vienna Agreement, the IEA said. However non-OPEC states in the group have complied at a rate of 64 percent, with Russia lagging behind its target cuts. “Russia continues to adjust output gradually,” the IEA said, adding that “if the producers deliver on their promises, the market could return to balance” in the second quarter of this year. The concerted push to lower prices has been successful, with the price of Brent crude rising from 50 a barrel in December to above 71 in early April.last_img read more

Deadly quakes in Japan and Ecuador spotlight need for rigorous structural safety

Damage assessment being undertaken following the devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake that hit the coast of Ecuador on 16 April 2016. Photo: WFP “These earthquakes are a reminder of how important it is that we apply the highest standards possible when building in earthquake zones,” said Robert Glasser, UN Special Representative for Disaster Risk Reduction. “It is buildings and damaged infrastructure which kill people when an earthquake strikes,” he stressed.That makes structural safety a matter of life and death in zones such as the Pacific ‘Ring of Fire,’ along which both Ecuador and Japan lie, in addition to the health risks posed by damaged water and sanitation systems and the hurdles that the impact on road networks can cause for relief operations.Noting that earthquakes and tsunamis are relatively rare natural hazards but account for nearly 750,000 deaths over the last 20 years and significant economic losses, he said that “urbanization within highly seismic zones has accelerated significantly in recent years and it is vitally important that this is done in a way that is earthquake-resistant for future generations.”Building codes must factor in earthquake riskThe existence – and, crucially, the implementation – of building codes that factor in earthquake risk is a critical factor in such regions, he stressed.To improve safety even further, it is important to bring existing structures up to scratch, for example by retrofitting historic sites. Last April’s magnitude-7.9 Nepal earthquake, which killed 8,000 people, provided a grim illustration when it toppled the landmark Dharahara tower in Kathmandu.The death toll in Saturday’s 7.8 magnitude temblor in Ecuador, the country’s strongest in decades, has already climbed to more than 400 lives. Rescue workers are still hunting in the rubble for survivors, and more than 2,600 people are listed as injured. The quake destroyed 805 buildings and damaged more than 600 more, including scores of schools, according to data from the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA). “Across Manabi and Esmeralda provinces, the earthquake has damaged or destroyed homes, hospitals, roads and businesses, power lines have been cut,” said UN Emergency Relief Coordinator Stephen O’Brien.The collapse of several hotels in the Pacific coast tourist region has also made international headlines.In Japan, meanwhile, the authorities said that at least 44 people died and 1,000 were injured in the two powerful earthquakes in the southwest of the country: a magnitude 6.4 on Thursday and a magnitude 7.3 on Saturday. They are the biggest since the massive earthquake and tsunami of 2011, which left more than 19,000 people dead or missing.Case study for strictly-enforced building codesJapan is a case study for strictly-enforced building codes that prioritise seismic risk reduction and are reviewed regularly in the light of developments in construction technology and early warning. As a result, the regular earthquakes that hit the country usually cause minimal damage.Ecuador has also been bolstering its own building rules. In January 2015, its Ministry of Urban Development and Housing released new regulations, capping a process that began in 2008 and saw Ecuadorian officials and the construction sector work together with foreign experts to share lessons and best practice.The issue was given fresh global impetus in March last year when the international community adopted the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, a 15-year blueprint for saving lives and livelihoods in the face of natural and man-made hazards.Besides seeking better seismic safety, the Sendai Framework also calls on countries to avoid construction on land susceptible to liquefaction, landslides and subsidence in the event of an earthquake.“We need to build better in the first place and not just build back better after the event,” said Mr. Glasser. read more

PODCAST From coop student to employer on Conversations with Goodman

This week on Conversations with Goodman, Jeremy Doan (BAcc ’04, Macc ’05) talks to host Susan LeBlanc about his career path in the accounting field.Doan, who has gone from co-op student to co-op employer, is now a partner at DJB, a long-time co-op employer at Brock’s Goodman School of Business.Doan has strong ties to the School, having graduated from Goodman with two accounting degrees and having taught part-time for nine years in the accounting department.He explains that he sees co-op work terms as a lengthy job interview process because as an employer, he is able to get to know co-op students and work with them to mold them into career-ready professionals who are able to use their accounting knowledge and experience to handle the demands of the job.Following a traditional public accounting career, Doan explains that it’s not all number crunching.“I don’t just sit there and deal with numbers – it’s a big part of it, but a lot of it is creative thinking and tax planning and meeting with clients and trying to determine what their goals and objectives are,” he said.This podcast is the latest in the Conversations with Goodman series which is produced by the Goodman Marketing, Communications and Alumni Relations team and features guests from the Goodman community. read more

Misleading Nike Twitter ad campaign banned in the UK

first_imgNike UK has come under scrutiny from the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) after commissioning English soccer players Wayne Rooney and Jack Wilshere to promote its brand in their personal tweets. After receiving complaints and investigating the posts in question, the ASA deemed that the tweets weren’t “obviously identifiable” as advertisements. Nike has since had this particular Twitter campaign banned.You can see one of the offending tweets pictured below, which was posted by Rooney who currently has a following of 4.37 million users.As you might have noticed, and as Nike pointed out to the ASA, the company’s tagline and link to the website are clearly displayed. Still, the advertising watchdog has stated without a clear indication, “for example [a] #ad,” the tweets could not be considered as a clearly indicated marketing campaign.The Nike Twitter ad isn’t the first the ASA has had to investigate for lack of transparency. In March, two users complained about Manchester United soccer player Rio Ferdinand and reality TV star Katie Price’s tweets, saying they were misleadingly pushing Snickers bars. However, the chocolate company was saved from the ban hammer as Price and Ferdinand used the hashtag “spon” (short for sponsorship) and @snickersUk in their posts. Clearly indicating they were endorsed by Snickers.The American Federal Trade Commission has similar regulations in place, which require tweets to have an “ad” or “paid” hashtag to clearly indicate what is a paid endorsement and what is not. These regulations help protect consumers from being misled by personal accounts they would otherwise assume to trust.via The Guardianlast_img read more

Lib fundraiser Nicolaou embroiled in controversy

first_imgThe Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) ruled in favour of lifting a suppression order earlier this week, the effect of which showed controversial email exchanges between Paul Nicolaou and Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s chief-of-staff Peta Credlin.The email exchange, dating back to 2011, shows Mr Nicolaou referring Ms Credlin to Brickworks, a company which gave the New South Wales Liberal Party hundreds of thousands of dollars in questionable donations. In the same email Nicolaou says (in reference to its objection of the controversial carbon tax) that the company was “a very good supporter of the [Liberal] Party”.The emails also show Nicolaou telling Credlin that Brickworks’ managing director, Lindsay Partridge, would help campaign against the contentious tax. Ms Credlin reportedly suggested that Brickworks’ position could be used during parliamentary question time, after Partridge urged the then Opposition Leader Tony Abbott to continue fighting the tax.Two months later Mr Abbott visited a Brickworks factory, praising it for its world class facilities. ICAC approached parliamentary Speaker Bronwyn Bishop regarding the release of the documents, and whether they would constitute a breach of parliamentary privilege – to which the speaker affirmed that no privilege had been claimed.Ms Credlin did not oppose the documents’ release.In other developments, federal Senator Arthur Sinodinos also fronted the tribunal this week.Source: ABC News Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

The US will finally get a new Nissan Frontier

Nevertheless, facing a growing crowd of fresh midsize trucks, Nissan is preparing to give its tried-and-true truck an update.The next-generation Nissan Frontier is “almost finished,” Autoblog reports, citing an interview with Alfonso Albaisa, Nissan’s SVP for global design. The VP of product planning also told Autoblog that it’s something the company is “actively working on, and [it] will soon be coming to market.” No further timeline was offered.The current Frontier, which started life in the 2005 model year, has soldiered on with a few changes here and there. Yet, it’s selling like relative hotcakes. According to data from GoodCarBadCar, 2018 was the Frontier’s second-best year ever, pushing nearly 80,000 units out the door. Its best year was 2016, when annual sales were just shy of 87,000 units.While sales are good, the Frontier lags in its segment in some important ways. It still lacks Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and its towing and payload figures are well under the competition. Addressing tech and capability alone would go a long way in making the Frontier competitive against new trucks like the Ford Ranger and Jeep Gladiator.There’s a chance Nissan could base its next Frontier on the Navara, but as Autoblog notes, even that truck is getting a little long in the tooth, having been updated last in 2014. And, according to the Navara’s Wikipedia page, a Nissan spokesperson has already said that the latest Navara is not indicative of a Frontier replacement. Then again, Nissan brought a years-old Patrol to the US as the “new” Armada, so anything’s possible, really.last_img read more

WB board Class X question papers to be opened before students

first_imgKolkata: In a departure from the norm, the West Bengal Board of Secondary Education (WBBSE) on Tuesday announced that question paper packets will henceforth be opened in front of Class 10 candidates, shortly before the commencement of the examination. Earlier, the sealed packets were broken in the office of the institution’s headmaster and papers sorted accordingly before distribution among the students. “From 2019, the sealed question packets of Madhyamik examination (Class 10 board exam) will be opened by invigilators in front of students in the examination hall and distributed accordingly,” board president Kalyanmoy Ganguly said. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal life Sources said the WBBSE decision came in the wake of reports that the headmaster of a Jalpaiguri school, during the 2018 secondary examination, opened sealed question papers 35 minutes before the scheduled time. The headmaster was suspended by the board after he failed to give a satisfactory reply to a showcause notice issued to him. There were also reports of question paper leak on WhatsApp in 2017, but the board, back then, asserted that the paper circulated was “fake”. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killed Ganguly said the WBBSE members, along with officer in-charge of local police station and a district administration official, will hold meetings with the head of examination centres to ensure that the measures were implemented without glitches. “This time, the number of question papers in the packets will tally with the number of examinees in the hall. There will be no sorting beforehand,” he said. The new measure was aimed at ensuring that exams were conducted in a transparent manner, Ganguly added.last_img read more
