first_imgFive stories in the news for Tuesday, April 16———DESTRUCTION AT NOTRE DAME TOUCHES CANADIANSThe Archbishop of Toronto said the fire that heavily damaged Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris is a tragic event that has touched people everywhere. Thomas Cardinal Collins pointed out that the fire has come in the week before Easter, the holiest time of the year for Christians. In Montreal, the bells of the city’s Notre-Dame Basilica rang out in solidarity this afternoon as the Paris landmark was consumed by flames. Pastor Miguel Castellanos said in a post on the Montreal church’s Facebook page that he’s in shock over the news of the fire at Notre Dame de Paris, which he described as a jewel of architecture and an exceptional cultural, historical and religious symbol.———INDIGENOUS CANNABIS ENTREPRENEURS FACE OBSTACLESLewis Mitchell, a former police chief on the Mohawk territory of Akwesasne, chuckled when asked if he thought he would have trouble finding customers when his first batch of cannabis is ready for sale around summertime. But he does not believe the customers will be from his community. It has been six months since the federal Liberal government legalized marijuana in Canada, leaving it up to the provinces to manage sale and distribution. First Nations people have jumped in on the action, but reserve politics and jurisdictional issues have complicated legalization in Indigenous communities. Akwesasne is a glaring example.———BROTHER OF BRONCO SURVIVOR IN WEEKEND CRASHThe family of paralyzed Humboldt Broncos player Ryan Straschnitzki is hoping their run of bad luck ends with three vehicle accidents. Straschnitzki’s 16-year-old brother, Jett, was driving a car that was hit over the weekend in Airdrie, Alta. He wasn’t injured but he and his parents were shaken. Tom Straschnitzki says the teen called late Saturday after the vehicle he had been driving was hit by an alleged impaired driver. Jett was upset, particularly because of what happened to his older brother, said the father. ———APPEAL TODAY FOR WOMAN WHO PLOTTED MALL MASSACRENova Scotia’s top court will hear the appeal today of an American woman who plotted a Valentine’s Day shooting spree at a Halifax mall. Lindsay Souvannarath was jailed in April last year after pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit murder in a 2015 plan to shoot people at the Halifax Shopping Centre food court. The 26-year-old woman has argued in provincial Appeal Court documents that her sentence of life imprisonment with no chance of parole for 10 years should be revised to a fixed sentence of 12 to 14 years. The Chicago-area woman has provided five grounds for appeal, including suggesting that the presiding judge committed an error by imposing a burden on her to prove she was remorseful and had renounced anti-social beliefs.———CANADIAN SENT TO US PRISON FOR RISKY TUNNEL SCHEMEA Canadian cab driver has been sentenced to 16 months in a U.S. prison for sending desperate immigrants through a risky international tunnel under the Detroit River. Juan Garcia-Jimenez wept and apologized Monday in federal court in Detroit. Besides prison, he was fined $8,680, the amount of money paid by nine people who were caught last year when they emerged on foot on the Detroit side of a railroad tunnel.———ALSO IN THE NEWS:— Albertans go to the polls today— The Parliament Budget Officer releases a report on its website titled “Bill C-266: Increasing the duration of parole ineligibility.”— Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tours the Communitech startup space, and makes an innovation and technology jobs announcement.———The Canadian Presslast_img read more

first_imgPaddington Bear has packed his suitcase and is coming to London for his big screen debut in the Paddington film, released in the UK on 28 November 2014.Paddington BearIn celebration of Paddington the movie – released in UK Cinemas on 28 November 2014 – and London’s art, culture and innovation,, The NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children) and STUDIOCANAL present The Paddington Trail.Fifty Paddington statues will be placed across London close to museums, parks, shops and key cultural and landmark hotspots in an inspiring trail, with a colourful, Paddington flavour. Each of the 50 Paddington statues will be created by artists, designers and celebrities with the trail tracking the travelling bear’s favourite places in London.From October 2014, you’ll be able to follow in the furry footsteps of the world’s favourite Peruvian explorer when the Paddington Trail is launched.In the movie, the young, stowaway bear finds himself alone in a big, unfamiliar city. He soon finds a warm, welcome place to stay with the Brown family, and sets out to discover more about his adopted city, London (hopefully with plenty of marmalade sandwiches along the way).Paddington’s origins date back almost sixty 60 years. His creator, Michael Bond, bought a small bear on Christmas Eve 1956, as a present for his wife, and named him after the nearest railway station to which they lived.The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said, “As a long-time fan of Paddington Bear, I’m delighted that this world-famous, marmalade-loving, duffle-coat wearing, polite but notoriously accident prone bear will be celebrated by Londoners and visitors to our great city, with the launch of this fantastic trail.”All of the Paddington Trail statues will be auctioned later in the year to raise money for the NSPCC, a charity whose work is all about protecting vulnerable children and making them safe.The film from STUDIOCANAL and Heyday Films is written and directed by Paul King (Bunny and the Bull, The Mighty Boosh) and produced by David Heyman (Gravity, Harry Potter). It boasts an all-star cast, including Nicole Kidman, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Jim Broadbent, Julie Walters and Peter Capaldi.Source:VisitLondon.comlast_img read more

TSX up on strong China trade data; loonie declines amid big jobs, housing misses AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – The Toronto stock market closed higher Friday amid better than expected trade data from China.The S&P/TSX composite index gained 45.31 points to 12,801.23 while the TSX Venture Exchange was off 0.3 of a point at 1,205.81.The Canadian dollar was lower on disappointments in Canadian job creation and housing starts. It skidded 0.47 of a cent to 99.73 cents US as Statistics Canada reported the economy shed 21,900 jobs last month. Economists had looked for a gain of about 5,000.The agency also revised downward the number of jobs created in December to 31,000 from 40,000.The jobless rate, however, decreased 0.1 of a point to seven per cent on a technicality — almost 58,000 Canadians left the workforce in January or ceased looking for employment.Earlier, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. reported that housing starts plunged to 160,600 in January, down considerably from a revised 197,100 reading in December. Economists had looked for starts to come in at 195,000.Traders also took in data showing that Chinese exports rose 25 per cent in January from a year earlier, while imports soared 28 per cent.But a large part of the increase was due to companies rushing to fill orders before shutting down for up to two weeks for the Lunar New Year holidays that begin Sunday.“The Chinese data is encouraging because you had stronger exports, which implies that demand in the developed countries, in North America and Europe, was reasonably good,” said Norman Raschkowan, North American strategist at Mackenzie Financial Corp.“And then you had stronger than expected imports which, for Canada, is good because that suggests that probably they had decent demand for commodities that we’re so anxious to sell. I think it’s like a win-win.”The Dow Jones industrials also benefited from a strong U.S. trade report and gained 48.92 points to 13,992.97. The Nasdaq was up 28.74 points at 3,193.87 while the S&P 500 index rose 8.54 points to a fresh, five year high of 1,517.93.In the U.S., the trade deficit narrowed sharply in December as oil imports plummeted and total exports rose. The smaller trade gap means the American economy likely performed better in the final three months of last year than first estimated last week.The U.S. Commerce Department says the trade deficit fell nearly 21 per cent in December to US$38.6 billion. Exports rose 2.1 per cent while imports shrank 2.7 per cent.Canada’s trade deficit with the world fell more than expected in December. Statistics Canada said the deficit came in at $901 million, down from $1.7 billion in November.Merchandise imports fell 2.8 per cent in December while merchandise exports declined 0.9 per cent.The financials sector was the leading group, up 0.56 per cent as Manulife Financial continued to find lift from a well-received earnings report released Thursday, up 29 cents to $14.84.IGM Financial Inc. (TSX:IGM) rose 17 cents to $43.10 as the mutual fund company saw its fourth-quarter net profit fall to $202.9 million, or 80 cents per share. That’s down from 89 cents per share or $230.6 million in the comparable period of 2011. Fourth-quarter revenue was also down, falling to $632.7 million from $649.6 million.Crude had earlier benefited from the Chinese data but the March oil contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange ended the session down 11 cents to US$95.47 a barrel. The energy sector climbed 0.5 per cent and Talisman Energy (TSX:TLM) advanced 16 cents to C$12.75.The tech sector was up 0.46 per cent as MacDonald Dettwiler (TSX:MDA) rose $1.14 to $65.94.BlackBerry shed early gains and was down 40 cents to $16.51. Still, the stock has soared from last Friday’s close of $13.01 after the smartphone maker launched its new Z10 product into the Canadian marketplace on Tuesday amid much hype. It won’t be available in the U.S. until mid-March.The consumer staples component also provided lift with food company Saputo Inc. (TSX:SAP) ahead 82 cents to $51.65.The utilities component was the biggest percentage decliner, down just over one per cent. Shares in Just Energy Group Inc. (TSX:JE) plunged $1.31 or 13.39 per cent to $8.47 after the natural gas and electricity retailer slashed its dividend, missed analyst revenue expectations, and announced that it wants to put in place a shareholder rights plan.March copper on the Nymex added three cents to US$3.76 a pound. China is the world’s biggest consumer of the metal, viewed as an economic bellwether as it is used in so many applications. However, the base metals sector fell almost one per cent. Teck Resources (TSX:TCK.B) was down $1.17 to C$33.28, adding to a loss of about six per cent Thursday amid a weak production forecast included in the miner’s latest earnings report.April bullion shed early gains to move down $4.40 to US$1,666.90 an ounce, leaving the gold sector flat. Barrick Gold Corp. (TSX:ABX) gained 15 cents to $32.84.In other earnings news, Brookfield Infrastructure (TSX:BIP.UN) is increasing its dividend by 15 per cent to 43 cents per unit even as the Bermuda-headquartered owner of utilities, rail and timber assets reports lower net income in the fourth-quarter. Brookfield units were ahead $1.32 to $39.82.The TSX finished the week little changed, up a slight 0.25 per cent to preserve a solid gain during January that saw the market rise by two per cent. New York indexes have also largely moved sideways since racking up a strong advance last month where the Dow industrials ran ahead about six per cent. by Malcolm Morrison, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 8, 2013 5:13 pm MDT read more

first_imgStory Partners public relations firm featured ASA’s WISHH in its Washington DC 100 newsletter for October, which focused on global food security issues. The WDC100 readership is 11,000. Additionally, media covered the newsletter with the message from WISHH Program Committee Member Kurt Maurath who also serves as the Kansas Soybean Commission Chairman. Maurath shared how WISHH connects trade and international development. “Trade is fundamental to global food security through supply of affordable, high-quality diets,” WISHH’s message stated. “Local production often does not meet demand so trade is essential to the availability of healthy, nutritious foods. The American Soybean Association’s WISHH Program connected trade and development to spawn a fish feed manufacturing sector in Pakistan. WISHH’s U.S. Department of Agriculture-funded project featured Kansas State University expertise to double tilapia growth rates, benefitting Pakistani farmers and consumers. U.S. programs like Pakistani aquaculture development, along with P.L 480 and McGovern-Dole Food for Education, are critical to food and economic security.”  The full newsletter is available here: read more

first_img The new Time Inc. is broken up into four groups with editorial directors who report directly to chief content officer Alan Murray.  Then, following the unexpected electoral college victory of Trump, People dedicated its latest cover to his election, and published several stories celebrating the Trump family, even featuring a photo of Trump and People senior editor Charlotte Triggs in a smiling side-hug. One of the groups most directly influenced by the Trump presidency is Latinos, who report feeling threatened by his campaign promises to deport immigrants and to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico.  — People Magazine (@people) November 9, 2016 — zoe kazan (@zoeinthecities) November 10, 2016 Michael Duffy, deputy managing editor of TIME magazine, is editorial director for all of Time Inc. He also reports directly to Murray. Just one of many diverse titles, TIME has not shied away from critiquing the problems of the impending administration in its current events coverage. By Wednesday, People published lifestyle pieces on Ivanka and Melania Trump. New York magazine called these stories “pandering.” Jezebel called them “literal propaganda.” “Donald Trump’s win is a history-making news event that warranted the cover of the magazine,” the spokesperson said in a statement.  “The story is not a celebration or an endorsement and we continue to stand by Natasha Stoynoff, whose account of being attacked by Trump in 2005 is recounted in this week’s cover story.” The magazine declares a readership of 39 million as of fall 2015. Over 33 percent of its audience is in the deeply-red South (12,903,000) and 22.2 percent is in the Midwest (8,612,000). Both regions swayed highly in favor of Trump.  One Time Inc. Should People — part of the celebrity, entertainment, and style group — continue its current editorial output, it may see great difficulties when it comes to cross-brand allignment. In addition to his EIC role at People, Cagle leads the celebrity, entertainment, and style group, which also includes Entertainment Weekly, InStyle, Essence, and xoJane. While much of the controversy in Trump’s campaign centered around alligations of sexual assault, as well as a recording of the president-elect explaining how he sexually assaults women, white female voters supported Trump over Clinton, 53 percent to 43 percent. For non-college graduated white women, it was 62 to 34.  Which audience? 22 photos of Ivanka Trump and her family that are way too cute Latinos made up 11 percent of the total American vote, according to The New York Times, citing exit polls which also showed that Latino voters favored Clinton by more than two to one.center_img #BOYCOTTPEOPLEMAGAZINE Celebs: do not give them your interviews or sell them your pictures Readers: do not give them your money This matters As Time Inc. eliminates silos through the launch of cross-brand digital desks, the legacy publisher may be forced to reconcile some yet unsorted issues of editorial discretion. Essence is written for black women, and is directed at feminist women. With people of color and women directly attacked throughout the Trump campaign, Cagle faces an interesting dilemma in managing cross-brand coverage of the Trump administration. People en Español, a Spanish-language offshoot of the brand, had an audience of 6,654,000 as of 2015 — 4,497,000 of whom are female. Meanwhile, nearly 16 percent of the English language audience for People is Latino. Seventy-three percent of its audience is white. Plenty of white voters supported Clinton, but an exit poll by the Edison Research for the National Election Pool found that white voters supported Trump over Clinton, 58 percent to 37 percent.  If judging by race alone, which in this election was proven to be a high-indicator of candidate alignment, People has an entire print title on the line when deciding how to cover the Trump family.  Cagle could not be reached for comment on the brand’s editorial policy, but a People spokesperson defended its coverage. This is aligned with People’s readership. Around 72.5 percent of its audience is female, but only 30.3 percent has graduated college. Though these figures don’t account for race, People’s typical reader is a non-college graduated white female in the South.  It was just last month that the magazine published a first-person account from its own reporter, Nastasha Stoynoff, who was allegedly sexually assaulted by Trump while reporting for the magazine. People magazine faces backlash against the brand following positive coverage of president-elect Donald Trump. Using #BoycottPeopleMagazine, a range of Twitter users have called for celebrities to withhold content from the Time Inc. brand and for readers to cancel their subscriptions. People magazine may be able to write about the Trumps for its majority-white, and highly-Southern audience, but it may not bode so well with audiences at other Time Inc. titles. As 47.7 percent of the country mourns the loss of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, and 47.5 percent celebrate the unanticipated victory of Trump, People faces a rather complicated audience satisfaction question: what do its readers want? “We stand steadfastly by [Stoynoff], and are proud to publish her clear, credible account of what happened,” editor-in-chief Jess Cagle wrote at the time. “It is heartbreaking that her fear of retaliation by Trump kept her from reporting the incident when it happened.” last_img read more

first_img– / 42 Proud to have marched in Cincinnati. This is not a moment, it is a movement! #MarchForOurLives— Bethany Wiegand (@OnOnUofK) March 24, 2018Hundred of thousands of students, teachers, parents and victims rallied in Washington, D.C., and across the country on Saturday to demand tougher gun control measures, following a wave of political activism among students and others impacted by school shootings.The “March for Our Lives” protest in the nation’s capital was organized by students after 17 people were killed in a mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., last month.The students are frustrated by what they say is the inaction of adults, especially politicians, who offer thoughts and prayers in the wake of school shootings but fail to pass legislation that protect kids from gun violence. They hope these marches will provide momentum for change ahead of the upcoming midterm elections.“I think it’s something that if any politician pushed in general, they would really have an easy time getting reelected because they would be, they would show that they’re practicing what the preach and are trying to be leaders in their own right, but right now I think in Washington, we’re not seeing that,” David Hogg, one of the survivors of the Parkland shooting, told Weekend Edition Saturday.The march officially began at noon, but protesters started gathering along Pennsylvania Avenue near the U.S. Capitol building early Saturday morning, as the event’s organizers expected the turnout to exceed 500,000 participants. The event in Washington is one of more than 800 happening coast to coast to push for stricter gun laws.Saturday’s demonstrations follow a national school walkout on March 14, exactly one month after the Parkland shooting, in which students across the country walked out of classes for 17 minutes to honor the 17 victims in Florida.That deadly shooting inspired a generation of youth activists, who have been raised in a time marked by gun violence, to raise awareness of a growing support for tighter gun laws, which still face powerful political opposition from gun supporters backed by the National Rifle Association.President Trump and the first lady were in Florida for the weekend at the president’s Mar-a-Lago resort in West Palm Beach. Following the Parkland shooting, Trump held a number of listening sessions with students and even floated the idea of raising the age of gun ownership to 21 and tightening background checks.But in the end, the administration didn’t push for any bold measures. The Justice Department also proposed on Friday, a plan to ban bump stocks, which are devices that allow a semi-automatic weapon to fire like a machine gun.“We applaud the many courageous young Americans exercising their First Amendment rights today,” White House Deputy Press Secretary Lindsay Walters said in a statement. “Keeping our children safe is a top priority of the President’s, which is why he urged Congress to pass the Fix NICS and STOP School Violence Acts, and signed them into law.”Organizers of the gun control rallies hope the massive crowds and impassioned speeches from teenage activists will tap into a growing sentiment for gun control. A new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs found that 69 percent of Americans think gun laws in the U.S. should be stricter, which is up from 61 percent in October 2016 and 55 percent in October 2013.Even as momentum for tighter gun control seems to reach historical levels the AP also found that most people don’t believe politicians will take action. Student activists like Hogg say that their generation’s action will be the tipping point for change on guns.“At the end of the day what our generation is fighting for is not only for us, the kids that are alive right now, but the future of America, we can and we will outlive our opponents because they are old and they are stuck in their old ways,” Hogg says. “We will change the face of America with or without our opponents.”Copyright 2018 NPR.

There is no backsliding. We are now on the track towards democracy, but going at a steady pace,” he said in a BBC interview broadcast today. He also said the army needed to be “involved in national politics” and refused to commit himself to any specific timetable on when that political role might be reduced.

first_imgRelated posts:Only three in ten Costa Rican workers have savings for retirement Costa Rica records lowest poverty figures in seven years Fuel prices set to rise for the second time this year Consumer optimism remains low in Costa Rica Costa Ricans can legally receive part of their salary in cryptocurrency, and given the impending financial crisis in Costa Rica, does it make sense to do so?May not. Not yet, anyway.Article 166 of the labor code says that Costa Rican laws allow for the use of commonly accepted assets as a means of payment. This means employees aren’t necessarily receiving cash or money, but some kind of benefit — cryptocurrency in this case — that is almost as good.An issue with paying a salary in cryptocurrency is that, as an employer, you have to pay part of your social security based on its value. That means you have to calculate worth on the day you paid in cryptocurrency. And if the price implodes later, it’s risky.Remind me – what is cryptocurrency? Cryptocurrency is a form of digital money, but it’s different from any other digital money out there because it’s decentralized, meaning it doesn’t belong to any one entity, such as a government. A free community of people who agree to use the digital money are governed by math and computer algorithms. There is no central authority to seize funds or censor transactions.Remind me – what is the blockchain?Blockchain is the digital ledger that records all transactions conducted with a given cryptocurrency.According to Namir Anani, president and CEO of the Information and Communications Technology Council, the most popular example of blockchain technology today is people sending remittance to their family in other countries. Usually, you have to go through a bank, which may take 5-10 percent of the payment. But with blockchain, because you’re not going through a bank — instead a distributed ledger, which thousands of people validate with mathematical models — you’ll receive all of it.Does it make sense to get paid in Bitcoin?According to Jose Zamora, law graduate from the University of Costa Rica and now director at InnovaMars, a Costa Rican startup company that specializes in the development of technological solutions using artificial intelligence and blockchain technology, “it’s risky to receive cryptocurrency as a part of your salary because you have to pay part of your social security as an employer based on these funds you receive.”The Central Bank of Costa Rica announced last year that cryptocurrencies fall outside the purview of the National Banking System and that portions of salaries may still be paid out in alternative forms. Provided that the legal minimum wage is recognized with money, paying salaries with other goods that are not money is allowed.Daniel Rojas, a cryptocurrency educator and consultant at CryptoReds, a website that teaches you how to use and invest in cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin (BTC), said he’s very careful to recommend cryptocurrencies.“It’s just so easy to get caught up in the lottery mentality and spend more money than you have,” he said. “People make emotional decisions because they see the comparisons of BTC in 2013 and 2014 when it was around $1,000, to when it peaked at $20,000 last December. […] It’s easy to get tangled up in the price.”After an unprecedented boom in 2017, the price of BTC fell by about 65 percent between 6 January and 6 February, 2018. Today, the BTC market cap is just below $4,000.Who accepts cryptocurrency as a means of payment in Costa Rica?According to, an online map where you can find shops and businesses that use BTC, there are 11 companies in San José that accept it as a means of payment.One of the companies accepting BTC is UV Line, a Brazilian retail store and brand that sells clothing with solar protection. Filipe Kirsche, distributor of UV Line products in Costa Rica, said he accepts BTC as a means of payment because of the positive publicity. Also, as a BTC user himself, he wants to see more people handling the currency and experimenting.Although Kirsche doesn’t have many people actually buying goods from his store with BTC, he thinks Costa Rica’s tourism economy could benefit from doing so.“I could see a lot of businesses getting attention because there are a lot of international BTC users coming to Costa Rica and if they see a hotel that accepts BTC, for example, maybe they’ll choose that one,” Kirsche said.Stigma and fear around Bitcoin It’s not all butterflies and sunshine when it comes to handling cryptocurrencies.Historically, the Costa Rican experience with digital money hasn’t been great. There was a case in 2013 where a Costa Rica-based company called Liberty Reserve — which referred to itself as the “oldest, safest and most popular payment processor, serving millions all around the world” — was shut down by United States federal prosecutors for money laundering and operating an unlicensed financial transaction company.BTC, on the other hand, is “a neutral technology and tool,” Rojas said. “Cryptocurrency is where the internet was in the early 90’s, not only because of the lack of infrastructure or reporting in the mainstream news, but also the fact that people don’t know a lot about it.”“Remember the assault on Banco Nacional in Monteverde in 2005?” Rojas asks. “Criminals were able to communicate on the phone inside the bank with people from the outside. After this, banks banned using phones in the bank because of security. Thirteen years after the fact, now it’s kind of rare to see bank security officers asking you to put your phone away.”This kind of paranoia around the technology, Rojas summarizes, is slowly going away because people recognize that more often than not, technology is used to do good.“People will use technology to do bad things,” Rojas said. “That’s just how things are.”Because of the famous cases involving cryptocurrencies on the black market like Silk Road and Mt. Gox, the mentality behind cryptocurrency is still shady, but Zamora says there is a lot of value in blockchain — the underlying technology behind cryptocurrencies.Silk Road was an online black market known for selling illegal drugs. Operated as a Tor hidden service and part of the dark web, online users could browse it anonymously and securely without potential traffic monitoring. In October 2013, the Federal Bureau of Investigation shut down the website and arrested the founder, Ross Ulbricht, who was convicted of eight charges related to Silk Road and sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole.Mt. Gox was a bitcoin exchange based in Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan, launching in July 2010. It handled over 70% of all bitcoin transactions worldwide as the largest bitcoin intermediary and the world’s leading bitcoin exchange. In February 2014, Mt. Gox suspended trading, shut down their website and services, and filed for bankruptcy protection. They announced that about 850,000 bitcoins belonging to customers and the company were missing and likely stolen – an amount valued at more than $450 million at the time.Blockchain > Cryptocurrency“It’s the mentality in Costa Rica — there is a lot of value in blockchain but not in cryptocurrency. We can’t turn a blind eye to cryptocurrencies. It’s something that’s happening and already out there so we can’t just say, ‘We’ll wait for blockchain to take off and ignore cryptocurrency,’ ” Zamora said.Zamora’s company, InnovaMars, helps businesses build digital wallets while researching compliance software.“Most of the cash we handle on a day-to-day basis has microscopic molecules of cocaine,” Zamora says. “Because in some way, it’s drug money.“Cryptocurrency might have the same stigma, but at least with the blockchain technology, we can trace it back and see where it’s coming from.”Coinfirm is an example of one website that can do transaction analysis to tell you where the bitcoin is coming from, who has owned it before or where it has bounced around in the blockchain because you can see traceability and accountability that cash is never going to give you.Tico Blockchain event Rojas, the cryptocurrency educator, is organizing an event with international and local speakers to communicate key messages around cryptocurrency and blockchain in Costa Rica. It’s called Tico Blockchain and will occur February 2nd. He believes that blockchain technology “is the next step for a great source of jobs in Costa Rica”. Thanks for reading The Tico Times.

first_img Consumer spending Deloitte New Home Prices Unemployment 2014-04-18 Tory Barringer April 18, 2014 463 Views in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, News Consumer Spending Gauge Takes Hit as Home Prices Slowcenter_img Share After a fairly flat February, Deloitte’s gauge of consumer spending declined a substantial half a point in March, the business advisory company reported.The Deloitte Consumer Spending Index, a measure of consumer cash flow as an indicator of future spending, fell from a revised reading of 4.03 in February to 3.51 in March.Despite the drop, Deloitte maintains that conditions remain positive for consumers.“The outlook for consumer spending remains healthy,” said Daniel Bachman, senior U.S. economist for the firm, adding, “The Index declined primarily due to a slower increase in median home prices.”Real new home prices—just one of the index’s four components—climbed slightly over the month to $111,000 and were up a paltry 0.8 percent over the year. That bump is down from a 5.5 percent increase in the 12 months leading up to January.“While housing prices are cooling off a bit, possibly due to the weather, there is no indication that the inventory of houses for sale has suddenly picked up,” Bachman added.Indeed, though revealed in a recent report that its national inventory was up 5.6 percent month-over-month in March, the company also noted that more local markets indicated a drop in supply, and a slowdown in new for-sale homes may be coming.Meanwhile, Deloitte’s other spending gauges were mostly mixed. According to the company, the nation’s tax burden held steady in March for the fourth straight month at 11.8 percent, real wages showed a gradual year-over-year increase to $8.86, and initial unemployment claims came in down from last year but up from February.last_img read more

first_imgThe chance that flights will be grounded between the UK and the European Union in the event of a no-deal Brexit is “close to zero”, said tourism minister Yiorgos Lakkotrypis.The economy of Cyprus is heavily dependent on tourism, and over a third of its annual four million visitors come from the UK.Asked about the possible impact of Brexit, and specifically a no-deal Brexit, where the UK would leave the European Union next March without new aviation rights or other new trade links agreed, the minister said a worst case scenario on flights would be avoided.“I see the probability of flights being grounded between the EU and the UK pretty close to zero,” he said.“No aviation connection will impact everything so it is not to the interest of anyone for such an eventuality. ..That’s why I sound optimistic regardless of the outcome of negotiations for a Brexit deal or not.”The chief executive of Ryanair, one of Europe’s biggest airlines, has warned that if there is a no-deal Brexit, UK flights could be grounded for up to three weeks.Lakkotrypis said that Cyprus would be able to maintain connections with Britain whatever the outcome of Brexit.“Let’s not forget we’re also members of the Commonwealth so we have had strong ties even before Cyprus joined the European Union so I think it will come natural for us to rebuild ties,” he said in an interview on Monday.You May LikePlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoGundry MD Total Restore SupplementU.S. Cardiologist: It’s Like a Pressure Wash for Your InsidesGundry MD Total Restore SupplementUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)UndoThree arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
