Trade tradeoffs and OLeary three ways politics touched Canadians this week

OTTAWA – The pageantry of the Donald Trump inauguration absorbed most of the political oxygen in Ottawa this week, mainly because the subtext was a growing realization that so many facets of Canadian politics have been turned on their head.The Jenga tower of assumptions that have allowed the Canadian, and global, political economy to function on a relatively stable basis is being disassembled from the bottom, threatening to wobble before policy makers understand how to react.Even the many women’s marches in Washington or across Canada on Saturday to protest sexism have turned into partisan events — many Canadian politicians are staying out of the fray to preserve Canada’s relationship with the United States.While Trump has barely had an official moment in the White House, his ruminations have already begun to affect Canadians in material ways — from puzzling through investment strategies to the value of the Canadian dollar.Here are three ways politics touched us this week:BORDERLINE AMBIGUITYTrump has made it clear that he has the U.S. borders in his sights, hoping to keep more investment within his country and prevent the departure of jobs and profits.“We’ve made other countries rich, while the wealth, strength and confidence of our country has dissipated over the horizon,” Trump said. “But that is the past.”How he plans to proceed is a matter of much confusion.Earlier this week, Trump told the Wall Street Journal he was not impressed with a Republican proposal for a border adjustment tax on some imports, and said there should be a simpler solution. Where Canada and its key export sectors fit in that calculus is unclear.Later, Wilbur Ross, on tap to be the next commerce secretary, said revamping the North American Free Trade Agreement with Mexico and Canada is Job 1. Again, the concrete ramifications for Canadian exporters are not yet known.What is clear is that volatility and unpredictability are now the order of the day. The Canadian dollar, for one, has been jumping all over the place — only the most overt and immediate effect of the new era.ENTER O’LEARYTrump has long been an influence in the fractious Conservative leadership race, and that ramped up this week with a formal declaration from investor-turned-television-star Kevin O’Leary that he intends to run.O’Leary has added some intrigue to the race, which now has 14 candidates and four months to go before party members vote to replace Stephen Harper.Similarities between Trump and O’Leary are easy to list: they are both brash outsiders with no experience in politics who pull public support (or hope to, in the case of O’Leary) from voters beyond the traditional party base.Beyond style, similarities of substance are less obvious. O’Leary’s interventions so far suggest he is no fan of identity politics and is not a social conservative. Rather, he has indicated he plans to run a pro-business, fiscal conservative campaign, targeting Justin Trudeau for his deficits and for his perceived lack of compatibility and chutzpah with the new Trump administration.HEALTH TRADE-OFFSOttawa has knocked off one more province in its race to sign them all up for a long-term health-funding agreement before the February federal budget.On Tuesday, Saskatchewan grudgingly signed a bilateral deal with the feds, joining New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador and the territories in agreeing to 10 years of three-per-cent annual increases in federal funding as well a chunk of extra money for mental health and home care.Ottawa also agreed to look the other way for a while, and let Saskatchewan continue to allow private clinics to offer MRI scans — despite Ottawa saying the practice contravenes the Canada Health Act.The holdout provinces are facing some pressure from mental-health advocates who desperately want to see targeted funding for their sector. But those provinces say they won’t be guilted into a side deal, mainly because other areas of health care would take a hit even as mental health would receive dedicated funding.But as their own budget days approach, how long can the remaining provinces withstand the appeal of federal funding?

Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame inducts six new members

Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame Inductees for 2019 BARDSTOWN, Ky. (KENTUCKY DISTILLERS’ ASSOCIATION) –  The Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame Thursday inducted six individuals into its hallowed ranks and bestowed its Parker Beam Lifetime Achievement Award on a beloved icon who patiently resurrected one of the state’s most historic distilleries and returned the family-owned brand to global prominence.This year’s inductees are, in alphabetical order:Katrina Egbert, Visitor Center Marketing Coordinator, Wild Turkey DistilleryWesley Henderson, Co-Founder/Chief Innovation Officer, Louisville Distilling Co.Larry Kass, Director of Trade Relations (Ret.),Heaven Hill DistilleryCharles W. Medley, Master Distiller, Medley Distilling Co./Charles Medley DistilleryPeggy Noe Stevens, Founder & President, Peggy Noe Stevens & AssociatesEven G. Kulsveen, Executive Director, Willett Distillery (Lifetime Achievement Award)- Advertisement – Created by the KDA in conjunction with the Kentucky Bourbon Festival in 2001, the Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame recognizes individuals and organizations that have made a significant and transformational impact on Bourbon’s stature, growth and awareness.It is the highest honor given by the signature industry and is presented annually during the Kentucky Bourbon Festival, which runs through Sunday in Bardstown.Candidates may be nominated each year by the KDA, its member distilleries and the Kentucky Bourbon Festival from four categories: Industry, Journalism, Roll of Honor and Lifetime Achievement. Nominees are then sent to the KDA Board of Directors for final selection.Kulsveen was honored with the prestigious Parker Beam Lifetime Achievement Award.Born in Norway, Kulsveen’s attention to detail served him well in the myriad of roles he has taken on throughout his life. He moved to America at the age of 14 and went to college in Gunnison, Colorado. He later served in the merchant marines where he worked as a chef.He got to know Thompson Willett, owner of what is now Willett Distillery, while working as a glass decanter craftsman. He married Willett’s daughter, Martha, and together Even and Martha purchased the distillery property from her father in 1984.His expertise in export markets became an immediate and imperative value. While popularity for brown spirits in the U.S. was on the decline, Asian markets demonstrated a thirst for whiskey and an appreciation for artistic packaging.Kulsveen positioned Willett to provide the best of both. He even took Japanese language classes at night to better serve his clients.During the distillery’s dormant years, Kulsveen sold premium-aged products overseas, marketing single barrel and small batch selections. He developed the heightened palate discretion of a Master Blender – a gift that has shaped Willett’s current boutique small batch collection.Willett Distillery remains independently family owned and operated. Under the leadership of parents Even and Martha Willett Kulsveen, siblings Britt and Drew Kulsveen are continuing the family tradition of spirits excellence, generosity and southern hospitality.Rick Robinson, Chairman of the KDA’s Board of Directors, said Kulsveen is an exemplary figure whose progressive strategy in the global market allowed him to position his family’s company as an influential brand at home and abroad.“Even has demonstrated disciplined leadership, strategic decision-making and bold forward-thinking ” said Robinson, who is Vice President of the Global Supply Chain for Campari. “He has built a family legacy that will last for generations to come, and we thank him for his significant contributions to Kentucky’s booming Bourbon industry.”KDA President Eric Gregory hailed Kulsveen for his vision to forecast and leverage business trends that have tremendously impacted the global demand for Kentucky Bourbon, long before others foresaw the impending Bourbon boom.“Even has worked on all sides of this industry from bartending todistribution to imports,” he said. “His intricate knowledge of marketing, along with his principled work ethic, enabled him to build brands and cultivate the type of loyalty that drives consistent consumer demand.”Willett President Britt Kulsveen said, “Our father has lived several lifetimes with all of the career paths he has taken – from tending bar to having a glass factory that produced decanters and envisioning the kingdom we have built together as a family today.“We have always said that he is lifetime’s ahead of his time with all of the innovative, genius creations he has imagined and brought to fruition,” she said. “This award is a long time coming.”Still, in accepting the award, Even Kulsveen observed, “How many of us would have thought, 30 years ago, that we would be here today.”The award is named for Parker Beam, who joined Heaven Hill in 1960 as a sixth-generation distiller in his storied family. He became Master Distiller in 1975 and earned numerous awards for distilling, aging and selecting some of the world’s most acclaimed Bourbons.He was named Master Distiller Emeritus in 2013 shortly after being diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig’s disease. His public advocacy for ALS research, care and awareness has generated millions for his “Promise of Hope” fund.Beam died in 2017 at the age of 75.The induction ceremony was held before a crowd of 220 Bourbon dignitaries during an evening reception on the grounds of My Old Kentucky Home in Bardstown, one of the state’s most revered historic sites.Federal Hill, the Georgian style mansion built around 1795, inspired Stephen Collins Foster to write his immortal song, “My Old Kentucky Home.” It is now part of Kentucky’s parks system and symbolizes the Bluegrass State’s gracious hospitality and genteel culture.KDA Chairman Robinson presented each inductee with an engraved miniature copper still before an elite crowd of whiskey luminaries. Each inductee’s name also will be added to a Hall of Fame display at the Oscar Getz Museum of Whiskey History in Bardstown. read more

Households in England facing inflationbusting council tax rises of £100 or more

first_imgCredit:Joe Giddens/PA Nearly all councils (95%) plan to increase council tax Adult social care was the greatest long-term pressure (nearly 38%), the survey said.Jonathan Carr-West, chief executive of LGiU, said: “Councils are on the edge. They are for the most part holding services together (though a significant minority are not). But they can only do this this by raising council tax, increasing charging and draining their reserves.”The system is unsustainable and needs far more fundamental reform than is presently on offer. It’s simply not acceptable that we don’t know how local government will work post 2020.”Councils are calling for assurances around funding for the next three years and for a fundamental redesign of the finance system. At present government is offering neither. That has to change.”Responding, Local Government Association chairman Lord Porter said: “Some councils continue to be pushed perilously close to the financial edge.”Many will have to make tough decisions about which services have to be scaled back or stopped altogether to plug funding gaps. Nearly every household in England will face inflation-busting council tax rises of £100 or more along with higher charges for parking and disposing of waste.Nearly all councils (95%) plan to increase council tax while 93% will hike charges to make ends meet, the 2018 State of Local Government Finance research conducted by the LGiU think tank and The Municipal Journal found.The council tax rises will add around £100 to the average bill for a Band D property – equivalent to 6 per cent – but as much as £200 for owners of more expensive properties. The planned increases come against a backdrop in which 80% of councils fear for their financial stability.Council tax can be hiked by up to 3% this year, in line with inflation, before a referendum is triggered, while authorities can also levy an additional “precept” to raise money for spending on social care.The greatest immediate pressure on budgets came in children’s services (nearly 32% of councils), followed by adult social care (nearly 28%), and housing and homelessness (19%). Credit: Alamy “Extra council tax raising powers will helpfully give some councils the option to raise some extra income but will not bring in enough to completely ease the financial pressure they face.”This means many councils face having to ask residents to pay more council tax while offering fewer services as a result.”The LGA has warned about the urgent need to address the £2 billion funding gap facing children’s services.”A child is being referred to council children’s services every 49 seconds on a daily basis and councils started more than 500 child protection investigations every day last year – up from 200 a decade ago.”This unprecedented surge in demand shows no sign of abating.”- A total of 113 individual councils responded to the survey, representing a third of all English local authorities.A spokesman for the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government said: “Our finance settlement strikes a balance between relieving growing pressure on local government whilst ensuring that hard-pressed taxpayers do not face excessive bills.”We have listened to representations made from councils and delivered on these with extra funding.”Overall councils will see a real-term increase in resources over the next two years, more freedom and fairness and with a greater certainty to plan and secure value for money.”We are also delivering on our commitment to give councils more control over the business rates they raise locally – with millions of pounds staying in communities and being spent on local priorities.”We want to work with local government to develop a new funding system for the future and encourage councils to submit responses to the review currently under way.” Nearly all councils (95%) plan to increase council taxlast_img read more


These Original HandDrawn Legend of Zelda Maps Are Truly Amazing

first_img The original The Legend of Zelda had one of the largest in-game worlds of its time. The overworld and its dungeons were so huge that it was easy to get lost or forget where certain items and doors were. Some kids took it upon themselves to draw their own maps to help them find their way. Depending on the artist’s skill level, some of these unofficial maps could be considered works of art.Knowing that, it is interesting to find out that the creators of The Legend of Zelda also made their own hand-drawn maps of the game during the development process. To celebrate The Legend of Zelda‘s 30th anniversary, Nintendo of Europe has released several illustrations that were used during the development of this classic. They’ve posted a video of the overworld map along with a few select sketches from the developers.This video is the overworld map, which comes complete with some of the in-game secrets.Below is a drawing of the infamous skull room, drawn by Takashi Tezuka. You can see how it compares to the one from the game thanks to the power of gifs!Here is another one from Tezuka-san.And here we have some pictures from none other than Shigeru Miyamoto himself. Miyamoto is known for being a talented artist in his own right, and that comes across in the level of detail of these drawings. These hand-drawn maps are so great that it would be wise for Nintendo to put them all in a collected book. I’m certain that fans of Zelda and of retro gaming would love to own these in one form or another. With more anniversaries of classic Nintendo franchises on the horizon, it will be nice to see the company release more content like this since it is a unique and interesting look into how some of our favorite games were created.

Dwells MultiPronged Media Strategy

first_imgThe event is not just for design professionals, but enthusiasts as well, which makes this event “the antithesis of a typical American tradeshow,” as O’Connor Abrams puts it, an aspect of the company’s media portfolio that establishes touch points with not only vendors and exhibitors, but its core reader base as well.“When it comes to the event space, I was struck by the fact that tradeshows in this country are these very pedantic events with aisles on a grid that are totally unimagined,” she says. “We broke the grid, if you will. When you walk into the convention center in Los Angeles for Dwell on Design, you see exhibition and experience centers, and not these aisles that you need to walk up and down on.”For Dwell on Design, five full-size homes are constructed on about 20,000 square feet of outdoor exhibit space, with about 10,000 plants covering the area, transforming the space into a neighborhood.“It’s an immersive design experience so there’s nothing tradeshow about it,” she says.The anti-trade fair concept, while intriguing on the surface, does raise some questions: How do sponsorships work? If attendees are mainly enthusiasts, why does it make sense to exhibit at all? And, how does this make sense for the publisher’s business?About 50 percent of the attendees are trade professionals, and the first day of the three-day event is for that demographic. Yet, O’Connor Abrams says many don’t leave after the trade day. During the event’s research phase to determine scale and size, exhibitors, she says, asked if the right people would be on site.“Our research shows they stay for the whole weekend and that it comes out to be 50-50 trade professionals and consumers,” she says. “We find that the people we attract are not only design-savvy consumers. It’s also not uncommon to see one of these enthusiasts walking with their blueprints for their remodel, new home or second home with their architect or designer by their side to meet with designers, vendors and suppliers. They are going ahead and purchasing, and our smaller exhibitors have a retail cash-and-carry license—it’s not uncommon to see someone walking out of the show with $2,000 worth of chairs for their kitchen.” As print continues to decline and digital often struggles to live up to the hype, events are offering higher profits than print and, for many publishers, far higher revenues than digital. Luxury consumer magazine and media company Dwell, however, is leveraging all of these different groups and treating each as equally valuable mediums for its business model.“We spent a lot of time looking at the events space for Dwell,” says Michela O’Connor Abrams, president of Dwell Media. “The driving business mission for the company is bringing modern design to anyone—anywhere, anytime, anyplace and in any form. Because of that, we really never, in a way, were a traditional publisher.”A Hybrid Trade EventIn 2005, O’Connor Abrams launched Dwell on Design, now one of the largest design events in the U.S., hosting about 30,000 attendees in 2012. last_img read more


Study shows solar powered sea slugs can survive long term in the

first_img This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. (Phys.org) —A team of researchers from Germany and the Netherlands has found that at least two species of sea slug thought to be able to endure long periods of starvation by gleaning energy from the sun has found that the slugs can live for long periods of time without food and with or without sunlight. In their paper published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences, the team describes experiments they conducted with the slugs and then outline their findings. The two types of sea slugs (Plakobranchus ocellatus and Elysia timida) survive by eating algae, but prior research has shown that the creature can survive very long periods of starvation. Because the slugs do not digest—at least right away—a specialized subunit of cells known as an organelle, that in the algae is responsible for photosynthesis, scientists have believed that the slugs were somehow gaining energy from the sun using the cells from the algae.To test this theory, the researchers subjected several of the sea slugs to long periods of starvation under three different conditions. One group of the slugs was kept in the dark without food—another group was kept in a sunlit enclosure but was also not given any food. A third group was given a chemical that inhibits photosynthesis and was then kept in a lighted enclosure, but was not given any food either. After 55 days the researchers pulled the slugs from their enclosures and studied them to learn if there were any differences among them. Surprisingly, the researchers could not find any. All the members of all three groups survived and all lost approximately the same amount of weight. A subsequent test showed just how durable the slugs really are—the researchers put six of them in a dark enclosure and didn’t feed them for 88 days—all of the slugs survived and even appeared healthy.The results of the study disprove the idea that the slugs somehow derive energy from the photosynthesizing cells they keep alive for long periods in their bodies. The researchers suggest that the slugs may instead be allowing the cells to remain alive for long periods of time, simply to eat them slowly as time passes. This means that the cells are apparently kept alive by the sun while in the slugs body—sort of an internal farming system, allowing the slugs to survive long starvation periods, which because they move so slowly, appears a necessary adaption to ensure survival.

Image (ii) shows a slug after 55 days of starvation in the dark. Credit: Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences, doi: 10.1098/rspb.2013.2493 More information: Plastid-bearing sea slugs fix CO2 in the light but do not require photosynthesis to survive, Published 20 November 2013 DOI: 10.1098/rspb.2013.2493AbstractSeveral sacoglossan sea slugs (Plakobranchoidea) feed upon plastids of large unicellular algae. Four species—called long-term retention (LtR) species—are known to sequester ingested plastids within specialized cells of the digestive gland. There, the stolen plastids (kleptoplasts) remain photosynthetically active for several months, during which time LtR species can survive without additional food uptake. Kleptoplast longevity has long been puzzling, because the slugs do not sequester algal nuclei that could support photosystem maintenance. It is widely assumed that the slugs survive starvation by means of kleptoplast photosynthesis, yet direct evidence to support that view is lacking. We show that two LtR plakobranchids, Elysia timida and Plakobranchus ocellatus, incorporate 14CO2 into acid-stable products 60- and 64-fold more rapidly in the light than in the dark, respectively. Despite this light-dependent CO2 fixation ability, light is, surprisingly, not essential for the slugs to survive starvation. LtR animals survived several months of starvation (i) in complete darkness and (ii) in the light in the presence of the photosynthesis inhibitor monolinuron, all while not losing weight faster than the control animals. Contrary to current views, sacoglossan kleptoplasts seem to be slowly digested food reserves, not a source of solar power.center_img © 2013 Phys.org Journal information: Proceedings of the Royal Society B Citation: Study shows ‘solar powered’ sea slugs can survive long term in the dark (2013, November 20) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-11-solar-powered-sea-slugs-survive.html Researchers discover sea slugs that stab each other in the head after copulation (w/ Video)last_img read more

Injured Uruguay star Suárez in camp England crushes Peru key Italian player

first_imgA look at the three teams that Costa Rica will face in Group D at the World Cup:MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay — Liverpool striker Luis Suárez arrived at Uruguay’s World Cup training camp on Monday 11 days after undergoing surgery on an injured knee.The English Premier League’s player of the year is hopeful of winning his race against time to be fit for Uruguay’s opening game against Costa Rica on June 14.And his chances have been boosted after Uruguay team doctor Alberto Pan declared the striker was “on track” to recovery after his training session.Pan added however that Suárez’s recovery was being monitored “on a day-to-day basis” by team officials and that no time frame had been put on his rejoining the team.The 27-year-old — who is set to clash with Liverpool teammate Steven Gerrard as Uruguay has been drawn with England, Italy and Costa Rica — had surgery after injuring his knee in training on May 22.He arrived back at Uruguay’s training camp outside Montevideo on Monday driven by his wife Sofía, according to media reports.Suárez enjoyed a phenomenal season in becoming the first Liverpool player to score 30 league goals in a season since Ian Rush 27 years ago, as the club finished runners-up in the Premier League behind Manchester City.Uruguay won their first World Cup warm-up match against Northern Ireland 1-0 and will next play Slovenia on Wednesday in Montevideo.Sturridge stars in England’s shutout of PeruLONDON — England forward Daniel Sturridge admits he can’t wait to get started at the World Cup after cementing his place with a majestic goal in the 3-0 win over Peru.Sturridge produced a strike good enough to grace the World Cup final, let alone a low-key friendly, as his sublime curler into the top corner ended Peru’s stubborn resistance late in the first half of Friday’s clash at Wembley.It was the Liverpool striker’s fourth goal in 11 appearances for England and his third in his last five starts, making it almost certain he will feature in the starting line-up when Roy Hodgson’s team begin their World Cup campaign against Italy in the sweltering tropical heat of Manaus on June 14.Before the big kick-off in Brazil, Hodgson’s squad head to Miami for a training camp and two more friendlies against Honduras and Ecuador, but Sturridge is already thinking about how it will feel to take part in his first World Cup.“It’s within touching distance. Everybody is looking forward to it,” Sturridge said. “It’s going to be a great time for everybody. It’s my first World Cup and I’m looking forward to embracing everything that it brings.Italy in low spirits after major injury, draw with IrelandLONDON – Italy manager Cesare Prandelli admits he faces a huge task to lift his shattered players in time for the World Cup after Riccardo Montolivo was ruled out of the tournament with a devastating broken leg.AC Milan midfielder Montolivo suffered a fractured left leg in a challenge with Republic of Ireland defender Alex Pearce early in the first half of Saturday’s 0-0 draw at Fulham’s Craven Cottage.The 29-year-old was rushed to hospital for scans that confirmed he would play no part in Brazil and he is expected to be flown to Milan for surgery on Sunday.Prandelli’s players were visibly shocked by their teammate’s cruel exit and struggled to establish any momentum for long periods of a stalemate that extended their winless run to six matches.There were emotional scenes in the dressing room after the final whistle as they came to terms with the extent of Montolivo’s injury and Prandelli knows it is essential to try to heal the psychological wounds as soon as possible.“First all our thoughts are with Riccardo. We have to be rational. After what happened everyone got distracted. It is too emotional now,” he said. “We saw the players inside. Everyone is broken and really sad about what happened.”To make matters worse, Prandelli also saw midfielder Alberto Aquilani, who had come on for Montolivo, forced off with an injury before halftime.
