first_imgLiberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson had a positive net score with 30 per cent saying she is doing badly and 32 per cent say she is doing well. General election 2019: Pro-Remain Londoners turn back on Corbyn's Labour - poll Philip Cowley, professor of politics at Queen Mary University of London warned that predictions were impossible at this stage, but noted as “striking” the marked decline in support for Labour in London. whatsapp whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeDaily FunnyFemale Athlete Fails You Can't Look Away FromDaily FunnyNoteableyJulia Robert's Daughter Turns 16 And Looks Just Like Her MomNoteableyFinanceChatterViewers Had To Look Away When This Happened On Live TVFinanceChatterMisterStoryWoman files for divorce after seeing this photoMisterStoryPast Factory4 Sisters Take The Same Picture For 40 Years.

The study, by Queen Mary University of London’s Mile End Institute, suggests half a dozen key Labour seats in the capital could be at risk when the country goes to the polls on 12 December. Tuesday 5 November 2019 12:14 pm Just 20 per cent believe he is doing a good job. In contrast, 59 per cent believe that Prime Minister Boris Johnson is doing badly, including 20 per cent of Conservatives, whilst 30 per cent say he is doing well. The Liberal Democrats have almost doubled their share, with 19 per cent of respondents saying they would vote for Jo Swinson, and her newly expanded team which includes high profile defectors from other parties including ex-Labour MP Chuka Umunna and former Tory minister Sam Gyimah. Main image: Getty The reason for this swing appears to be Brexit, which is the single most important issue for Londoners (58 per cent), followed by health (34 per cent). He said: “Seat projections are a tricky business at the best of times – and these aren’t the best of times. Catherine Neilan Some 39 per cent of respondents said they would vote for Labour this time – down 10 percentage points on the 2017 election. The Conservatives are on 29 per cent, also down from two years ago, when a third of Londoners said they would vote blue.

North American markets climb

first_img Linda Nguyen Keywords Marketwatch TSX gets lift from financials, U.S. markets rise to highest since March A dovish tone in the latest statement from the U.S. Federal Reserve sent Toronto and New York stock markets higher Wednesday, as the central bank decided to hold its key interest rate unchanged amid an uncertain global economy. The S&P/TSX composite index climbed 77.82 points to 13,478.13, aided by rising energy, metal and gold stocks. Toronto stock market dips on weakness in the energy and financials sectors Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Facebook LinkedIn Twitter The loonie spiked against a weakening greenback, gaining 1.37 U.S. cents to 76.21 cents US. In a statement after its two-day policy meeting, the Fed said the U.S. economy has shown signs of moderate growth but that it is still concerned about global economic risk. As a result, Fed officials now expect to raise interest rates two times this year instead of four. Most economists don’t expect the first hike to occur until at least June. See: Fed keeps key U.S. interest rate unchanged On Wall Street, investors seemed to be reassured by the Fed’s dovish comments regarding gradual, moderate rate increases. The Dow Jones industrial average was up 74.23 points at 17,325.76, while the broader S&P 500 composite index advanced 11.29 points to 2,027.22 and the Nasdaq composite gained 35.30 points to 4,763.97. Since raising its key rate from a record low in December, the Fed has held off on raising rates again. In a nod to the financial market turbulence that hit in the beginning of the year over concerns about falling oil prices and weakness in China, the Fed statement said: “Global economic and financial developments continue to pose risks.” It noted that inflation has “picked up in recent months” but remained below the Fed’s desired 2% target. Craig Jerusalim, a portfolio manager at CIBC Asset Management, says the risk with resuming rate hikes too quickly is that it will slow growth in the U.S., which can eventually lead to a global recession. Alternatively, the risks with waiting too long is that inflation can ramp up more quickly than people expect. In the meantime, stock markets will continue to stay buoyed as long as interest rates remain low. “It sure does help stock markets,” he said. “Companies are able to borrow money and invest in their businesses, make acquisitions, buy back shares, all which are stimulative for stock prices. There’s also the alternative factor. If you’re not being paid to save money, you’re going to go out and invest.” On commodity markets, the April gold contract closed $1.20 lower at US$1,229.80 a troy ounce, but after-market trading saw bullion soar as much as US$33 an ounce. Meanwhile, May copper was unchanged at US$2.23 a pound. The April crude contract climbed $2.12 to US$38.46 a barrel and April natural gas added two cents to US$1.87 per mmBtu. Commodities, which are priced in U.S. dollars, are typically seen as more attractive to holders of other currencies when the American dollar falls in value.

Senator Franklin Leads Delegation to Rotterdam Convention

first_imgSenator Franklin Leads Delegation to Rotterdam Convention UncategorizedOctober 30, 2008 RelatedSenator Franklin Leads Delegation to Rotterdam Convention FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Senator Aundre Franklin, Parliamentary Secretary in the Ministry of Health and Environment will lead a delegation to the Rotterdam Convention at the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) headquarters in Rome, Italy from October 30 – 31, 2008. The theme identified for the two day meeting is “Sound Chemicals Management: Relieving the Burden on Public Health.”“Jamaica has an important role to play at the Rotterdam Convention on the Prior Informed Consent Procedure for Certain Hazardous Chemicals and Pesticides in International Trade”, said Mr. Franklin.The Rotterdam Convention is an early warning system that empowers poorer nations to make their own informed decisions on the importation of toxic and industrial chemicals. These chemicals pose death, disability, birth defects and environmental threats. Under the convention there are 41 chemicals subject to Prior Informed Procedure (PIC) for Certain Hazardous Chemicals in International Trade. The Convention’s approach is to stop problems with hazardous chemicals before they start, by impeding exports of unwanted hazardous chemicals to countries that cannot manage them throughout their life cycle.According to Senator Franklin, “Jamaica’s participation in this convention is critical as we will be advocating for several hazardous chemicals to be added to the Annex III of the convention which poses a significant health risk here in Jamaica and elsewhere. These identified hazardous chemicals to be included in the Annex III of the convention are Chrysotil, Asbestos, Endosulfan and Tributlytin compounds. Senator went on to point out that “Jamaica intends to amend and strengthen the convention by advocating for a voting system of 2/3 majority in decision making of the Rotterdam Convention Conference of Parties.”He added that Jamaica would be lobbying for a meaningful and more proactive financial and technological mechanism within the Convention from which Caribbean countries could obtain assistance in establishing modern chemical analyzing facilities equipped with the latest technology aimed at protecting our people from harmful chemicals.The convention text was adopted by governments in Rotterdam in September 1998 and entered into force on 24 February 2004. The aims of the convention include reducing: . Accidental deaths and injuries among users who too often are unequipped to handle hazardous chemicals safely, . Damage to the environment, . The creation of dangerous, forgotten stockpiles of obsolete and unwanted hazardous chemicals, particularly pesticides and; . Growth in the world’s toxic waste disposal problem.

CU-Boulder to Study Environmental Fate of Oil Dispersants Used in Gulf Cleanup

by admin
first_imgEnvironmental engineering faculty and students at the University of Colorado at Boulder are launching a study this month to determine the environmental fate of chemical dispersants being used in the Gulf oil spill cleanup.Professor and water treatment expert Karl Linden will lead the one-year study, which is funded by an $82,319 RAPID-response grant from the National Science Foundation. Linden will work with Assistant Professor Fernando Rosario-Ortiz, who brings additional expertise in environmental chemistry and oxidation processes."Dispersants are designed to break up large globules of oil into smaller droplets that enhance biodegradation," Linden said. "However, the use of dispersants is being carried out in ways never envisioned."Dispersants are being sprayed onto the ocean in larger quantities than ever before and injected deep underwater at the source of the oil leak, a new practice with unknown consequences, according to Linden.The investigations will focus on Corexit, a proprietary chemical being used by BP, and on photochemical degradation -- driven by sunlight -- which is believed to be an important mechanism in the breakdown of the dispersant."Our research will focus on how efficient sunlight-driven processes are at degrading these compounds," Rosario-Ortiz said. "This represents a significant challenge based on the chemical complexity of these dispersants, and the different environmental factors that will interfere with these processes."The team plans to travel to the Gulf area in late August to obtain water samples and coordinate with other studies in the area. Prior to that, the researchers will develop an analytical method to monitor the chemical constituents in the dispersant, and investigate fundamentals of the dispersant's decay in the laboratory using model ocean water and a solar simulator.At the conclusion of the study, the team will model and estimate the half-life of identifiable chemicals in the dispersant based on sunlight conditions experienced in the Gulf of Mexico and predict their photochemical fate.Linden and Rosario-Ortiz also plan to integrate their activities and findings into their fall undergraduate and graduate classes on environmental engineering and water chemistry.

While we monetised almost 50 per cent of global voice traffic [in that period], we only monetised 5 per cent of mobile data traffic… Our ability to respond to a fast changing sector can be best described as slow,” commented Ahmad Julfar (pictured), Group CEO of Etisalat. “We can complain that OTTs are taking away our rightful revenues as they use our networks as dumb pipes, but the fact is these companies are more agile than us and have been the real reason for driving data growth in the telco sector.”duDu CEO Osman Sultan (pictured, left) lamented the mobile industry’s failure to launch global online service phenomena such as Facebook. “The most constructive thing that happened in our industry – social networking – happened without us,” he commented. This is something we need to reflect on with humility.”The two operator bosses were optimistic that mobile operators could reap future rewards from OTT services, as the digital world is still in its relative infancy, but warned business models must change.“The world is changing very fast and we should be happy we are at the heart of this change,” said Etisalat’s Julfar. “Due to the high demand on data, telcos will always be relevant – the OTTs are here to stay and we need to find ways to work with them and grow with them. We need to move from competitive value destruction to co-operative value construction. This will help to create better products, of course all the while ensuring consumer privacy.”Du’s Sultan went as far as to suggest that operators have not yet determined what position they want to play in the evolving digital world. “Why haven’t we been able to create a model to maximise this? Because we exist in silos,” he stressed. “We continue to work in the standard business model. We need an ecosystem that will foster innovation.”To that end Sultan urged the mobile community to rethink existing strategies. “I’m very passionate about creating a business model to allow operators in the Arab world to exist in the world of direct advertising and operator billing. OTTs are doing a great job and are here to stay but we can gain a piece of the pie if we have these capabilities.” Justin Springham Authorlast_img
