HALIFAX – One of two British sailors accused of sexually assaulting a woman at a Halifax-area military base is still in hospital, delaying their trial yet again.Simon Radford’s lawyer told Nova Scotia Supreme Court Monday that his client had undergone surgery on Saturday morning, and the doctors had said the earliest he could be discharged from hospital would be later that afternoon.“I wish I had better news,” David Bright told Justice Patrick Duncan, adding that Radford has an infection and there was a significant amount of inflammation.“They had to check for whatever form of bacteria is doing the infection. It has to go up to the infectious disease people, which could take some 48 hours, which might be tonight before they determine the nature of it.”Radford, 34, and Darren Smalley, 38, are charged with sexual assault causing bodily harm and participating in a sexual assault involving one or more people at CFB Shearwater in April 2015.Duncan noted the repeated delays in their trial are not ideal, “but we do have to deal with it.”“I think we have to be realistic in our planning. This sounds quite serious,” said Duncan. “If he’s had general anesthetic and if he’s going to need antibiotics, we’ll be lucky to bring him in this week, to be frank, based on what I’m hearing.”Duncan adjourned the trial until Wednesday morning, although it’s unclear if Radford will be well enough to continue at that time.The trial was scheduled to continue in Nova Scotia Supreme Court on Friday, but Radford had been admitted to hospital. The start of the trial had also been delayed last Tuesday because he was in hospital.Bright told the court last week his client was injured in the United Kingdom and suffered a torn artery.The two accused — members of the Royal Navy — were participating in a naval hockey tournament in Halifax at the time of the alleged sexual assault.The trial has so far heard from one witness: Sgt. Tyler Bruce-Hayes, a military police officer who investigated the alleged incident.Bruce-Hayes was questioned by Crown lawyer Eric Taylor, but has yet to be cross examined by Bright and Smalley’s lawyer, Ian Hutchison.The investigator has told the trial that he interviewed the complainant, whose identity is protected by a publication ban, after she was examined in a hospital in the early hours of April 11, 2015.He testified he interviewed her for about two hours, and that she appeared upset.Bruce-Hayes also reviewed evidence that was collected during the investigation, including photos and videos extracted from electronics in the Warrior Block accommodations at CFB Shearwater, and biological samples that were taken from the complainant.The complainant is expected to testify at the judge-alone trial, and Taylor has said he will call about 12 witnesses, including a friend of the complainant and experts.Both Smalley and Radford are not in custody, but are under strict bail conditions.The Crown had originally charged four men, but charges against two of the sailors were dropped.Follow (at)AlyThomson on Twitter.

TORONTO – Shares of retailer Roots Corp. had a less-than-stellar initial public offering, plummeting more than 16 per cent on the stock’s first day of trading.The stock (TSX:ROOT) was priced at $12 per share at market open, but quickly fell to a low of $9.48 by early afternoon.The shares were down 16.67 per cent, at $10.00 on the Toronto Stock Exchange at the close of markets Wednesday.For the heritage-fashion retailer, the switch from being a private company for more than four decades comes against a challenging retail environment that’s seen numerous bankruptcies, mass store closures and layoffs in recent years.“We are in the early stages of leveraging our strategic operational investments to support our continued growth in Canada, the United States and internationally,” said Roots CEO Jim Gabel in a released statement.“Our TSX listing provides an additional platform to help us unlock the potential of the Roots brand.”The debut of Roots as a publicly-traded company follows recent initial public offerings by other Canadian fashion companies, including Aritzia Inc. (TSX:ATZ) and Canada Goose Holdings Inc. (TSX:GOOS).Shares in Canada Goose have soared since they began trading earlier this year, however Aritzia shares have struggled and fallen well below their IPO price.Roots is in the midst of planning a massive North American and international expansion over the next several years.The company, known for its poor-boy style hats and woolly winter mitts that have adorned both Canada’s Olympic athletes and consumers, currently operates 120 stores in North America and has a partner running another 136 between Taiwan and China.Roots is looking to open dozens of new locations. That includes up to 10 in Canada and up to 14 in the U.S. by the end of its 2019 financial year.It’s also eyeing international markets, hoping to add up to 25 new locations in Taiwan and China, and build a presence in Singapore and Malaysia in the same time frame.Beyond that, the company is evaluating partnerships in a dozen new markets abroad.Follow @DaveHTO on Twitter.
CALGARY – Crescent Point Energy Corp. says it plans to reduce its workforce by 17 per cent, sell some infrastructure assets and reduce its debt by more than $1 billion by the end of 2019.The Calgary-based company says the workforce reduction will lower expenses by more than $50 million annually, but it didn’t say how many people would be affected.According to a regulatory filing, it had 1,085 permanent employees at the end of December, including 462 at its head office.Crescent Point also confirmed Craig Bryksa is the new president and chief executive. He replaced long-time CEO Scott Saxberg on an interim basis in May.“This restructuring is difficult, however we needed to adjust the organization to match our current business needs,” Bryksa said in a statement.“We are all focused on executing our transition plan and are excited about Crescent Point’s future.”The company said it will focus on its Viewfield, Shaunavon and Flat Lake resource plays and to continue advancing emerging and early-stage plays in the Uinta Basin and East Shale Duvernay areas.It’s also reviewing the sale of some infrastructure assets.At Crescent Point’s board of directors, Robert (Bob) Heinemann replaces Peter Bannister as chariman.The appointments of a new chairman and CEO are part of a previously disclosed review of governance that began in late 2017.Earlier this year, Crescent Point shareholders rejected a dissident slate of directors that was put forth by Cation Capital Inc., which had been critical of the company and its compensation policies.The company said Wednesday that a recent restructuring of its executive team is expected to reduce annual compensation for the five current highest-paid executives by 20 per cent compared with 2017.Companies in this story: (TSX:CPG)
TORONTO — The Toronto stock market closed little changed Thursday as energy and gold stocks advanced after worries about the future of the eurozone pushed commodity prices to multi-month lows this week.Here are the closing numbersTSX — 11330.68 +4.60 +0.04%S&P 500 — 1304.86 -19.94 -1.51%Dow — 12422.49 -156.06 -1.24%Nasdaq — 2813.69 60.35 -2.10%The S&P/TSX composite index edged up 4.6 points to 11,330.68. But that was well off early gains of almost 100 points as financial stocks lost ground because of worries about damage to the eurozone banking system if Greece ends up leaving the monetary union.The TSX Venture Exchange was ahead 10.33 points to 1,228.07.The Canadian dollar lost 0.62 of a cent to a four-month low of 98.13 US cents. The loonie has slid almost three US cents since the start of the month as traders have avoided risky assets like commodities and resource-based currencies like the loonie.U.S. markets were lower as a key business barometer for the U.S. Northeast unexpectedly weakened in May. The monthly survey by the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia fell to minus 5.8 from 8.5 in April, well below expectations.The Dow Jones industrials declined 156.06 points to 12,442.49.The Nasdaq composite index fell 60.35 points to 2,813.69 and the S&P 500 index dropped 19.94 points to 1,304.86.Greece is being kept afloat by huge international bailouts. But there are increasing worries that parties demanding an end to the grinding austerity measures that made those bailouts possible will hold the balance of power after next month’s elections.Such a move could force Greece out of the eurozone with unpredictable consequences for the region’s financial system and the wider global economy.The financial sector lost 1.6% amid worries about the health of eurozone banks as investors worry that destabilization could also hit other heavily indebted countries such as Spain, Ireland, Portugal and Italy.Royal Bank was off $1.07 to $51.96 while TD Bank dropped $1.28 to $77.65.Shares in Bankia, the recently-nationalized Spanish bank, plunged by as much as 27% Thursday on a local report that customers have withdrawn more than C1 billion since the state took it over last week.The bank is Spain’s fourth largest and is heavily exposed to the country’s collapsed property market.And on Wednesday, Greece’s president said depositors were pulling hundreds of millions of euros out of banks, weakening the country’s already strained financial system.“You’re already seeing a run on the banks happening … and it’s coming more to a head now,” said Chris Kuflik, investment adviser at ScotiaMcLeod.Meanwhile, commodity prices were mixed after a string of bruising losses that have left prices for oil and metals at levels not seen in months.Demand concerns have been a big reason for the slide in prices. But commodities have also been driven downward by the rising American currency. That’s because prices are denominated in U.S. dollars and a higher greenback makes oil and metals more expensive for holders of other currencies.But the base metals component lost 1.15% as copper gained a penny to US$3.48 after ending Wednesday’s session at its lowest level since mid-January. First Quantum Minerals declined 51 cents to $17.23 while Northern Dynasty Minerals jumped 40 cents or 10.4% to $4.24.The energy sector gained 0.1% as the June crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange lost early traction to move down 25 cents to US$92.56 a barrel after closing Wednesday at its lowest level since last November. Canadian Natural Resources climbed 43 cents to $29.76.Imperial Oil says it may sell its refinery in Dartmouth, N.S., or convert it into a terminal. It noted increased competition and lower demand for the refinery’s products and said the facility has not met financial expectations. Imperial shares shed 99 cents to $41.01.The gold sector ran up about 5.75% as bullion gained US$38.30 to US$1,574.90 an ounce after closing at its worst level since last July. Barrick Gold Corp. climbed $2.45 to $38.16 while Goldcorp Inc. ran up $2.29 to $35.48.Traders have also been demanding more money to buy government debt.Spain managed to auction nearly $2.5-billion in medium-term debt amid strong demand but at sharply higher interest rates. The Spanish Treasury on Thursday sold three kinds of notes, two maturing in 2015 and one in 2016. Of them only one was strictly comparable to previous sales and the interest rate, or yield, on that three-year bond went up to 4.87% from 4.04% on May 3.There was also some high drama ahead of Canadian Pacific Railway’s annual meeting Thursday, with chief executive Fred Green stepping down after his defenders lost a proxy battle.U.S. fund manager Bill Ackman has pushed for Green’s removal since last year.One of the top priorities will be to begin the process of replacing Green, likely with Hunter Harrison, a retired former CEO of rival Canadian National Railway, although Ackman said the appointment isn’t a done deal.“They mounted a good fight,” added Kuflik.“Hunter Harrison did a fantastic job at CN and CP did need a shakeup because their metrics were nowhere near as good as CN’s.”CP shares were up 65 cents to $76.51.In other corporate news, Sears Canada shares fell $1.70 or 12.93% to $11.45 after it said its U.S. parent will dramatically reduce its holdings in the troubled department store chain and may sell all of its stake. About 95% of the common shares of Sears Canada are currently owned by Sears Holdings Corp., which also owns the Sears and Kmart department store chains in the United States.Here’s the news investors were watching today:Fred Green resigns as CP Rail CEOSpain buckling under bond pressure, bank crisis, recessionU.S. jobless claims hold steadyCanadian wholesale sales driven higher by autosON DECK FRIDAYECONOMIC NEWSCANADA8:30 a.m.Consumer Price Index (April)
Ottawa should do more to cool Toronto, Vancouver real estate markets: OECD by Alexandra Posadzki, The Canadian Press Posted Jun 1, 2016 10:26 am MDT Last Updated Jun 1, 2016 at 3:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development says Ottawa needs to introduce new measures to reduce some of the risk associated with soaring home prices and household debt levels in Toronto and Vancouver.In a report issued Wednesday, the OECD said the possibility of a housing market correction, particularly in those two markets, could threaten the country’s financial stability.It’s not the first time that the OECD has called for measures to cool sky-high house prices in Toronto and Vancouver, which together comprise a third of the country’s real estate market. The organization made similar comments in its report last December.Since then, Finance Minister Bill Morneau has increased the minimum down payment for homes over $500,000, a measure aimed specifically at the red-hot Toronto and Vancouver markets.As of February, homebuyers must put down 10 per cent on the portion of a home over $500,000. Buyers can still put down five per cent on the first $500,000 of a home purchase.The previous Conservative government tightened rules for new insurable mortgage loans four times between 2008 and 2012, including reducing the maximum amortization period to 25 years from 40 years in several stages.However, CIBC deputy chief economist Benjamin Tal says all of the changes have done little to take the steam out of the country’s hottest markets.“Obviously it’s not helping, especially not in Toronto and Vancouver,” says Tal.Following the introduction of Morneau’s new down payment rules, sales activity in Toronto and Vancouver declined in March compared with the previous month, according to statistics from the Canadian Real Estate Association.And the following month, sales in Vancouver were virtually flat on a month-to-month basis, while sales activity in Toronto climbed a relatively modest 3.2 per cent.However, prices in both markets have continued to climb.According to CREA’s figures for April, home prices were up more than 25 per cent year over year in Greater Vancouver and more than 12 per cent in Greater Toronto.Tal says federal changes are doing little to slow price growth in Toronto and Vancouver because the rules only affect a small segment of the market.“Most of the changes were made to the insured segment of the market, but a lot of the activity that is happening, especially over $1 million, is in the non-insured segment of the market,” says Tal.Homebuyers who purchase a property with a down payment of less than 20 per cent are required to take out mortgage insurance from a company such as Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation.Homes that cost over $1 million don’t require mortgage insurance because they can’t be purchased without a down payment of at least 20 per cent.If the government hopes to address the uninsured segment of the market, one way to do so would be to target foreign investment, says Tal.But limiting the impact of foreign investment on home prices is tricky, he adds.“It’s a very complex issue,” says Tal. “You don’t want to close Canada to foreign investors.”Rules such as those in Australia, where foreign investors can only purchase new developments, rather than existing homes being re-sold, are too restrictive, says Tal.Ottawa could instead choose to introduce a capital gains tax or a tax on flipping houses that would target foreign investors, he says.TD economist Diana Petramala says such a measure would be the “sharpest, bluntest tool” that the government could use to limit the impact of speculative investing on Canadian home prices.“You have to be very careful because you don’t want to cause the crash you’re worried about, so something like that would have to be implemented slowly or with considerable caution,” Petramala said.Follow @alexposadzki on Twitter.

Everett Withers, the current interim head coach of the University of North Carolina football team, was hired Wednesday to join new Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer’s staff. Withers will be the assistant head coach, as well as co-defensive coordinator under Meyer, according to a press release. Withers will split defensive coordinator duties with current OSU head coach Luke Fickell. However, Meyer previously said Fickell will call plays for the unit. In his fourth season at UNC and his first as its head coach, Withers led the team to a 7-5 overall record and an appearance in the Dec. 26 Independence Bowl against Missouri. Withers will stay with the Tar Heels to coach its bowl game. A UNC football team spokesman declined to comment to The Lantern regarding Withers’ departure from the university. OSU did not immediately make Withers’ contract details available. Withers is currently in his 24th season as football coach of both NFL and college teams. Withers began his coaching career as defensive coordinator at Austin Peay in 1988 and would eventually hold other collegiate coaching position at Tulane (1991), Southern Mississippi (1992-93), Louisville (1995-97), Texas (1998-2000) and Minnesota (2007) before becoming UNC’s defensive coordinator and secondary coach in 2008. Withers has also served as defensive backs coach for the NFL’s Tennesee Titans from 2001-2006 and oversaw defensive quality control for the New Orleans Saints in 1994. The Independence Bowl Dec. 26 is scheduled for 5:00 p.m. kickoff while Fickell will coach OSU in Jacksonville, Fla., Jan. 2 when the Buckeyes play Florida in the Gator Bowl.
He has links with the West Midlands and Brighton.An Avon and Somerset Police spokesman said: “If you see him, he should not be approached and you should call 999.” Leyhill open prison in south GloucestershireCredit:Google Maps Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. A mentally disturbed man who raped and killed a woman while on home release from prison in the 1990s has absconded from custody again.The alarm was raised after killer Keith Whitehouse failed to appear for roll call at Leyhill open prison in South Gloucestershire at 8.15pm on Saturday. He was last seen three-and-a-half hours earlier.Whitehouse, now 56, is serving a life term for manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility after he battered 21-year-old Suzanne Bromiley over the head with a brick after forcing her to have sex at knife-point in a graveyard in 1991. He also stabbed her in the head. Whitehouse committed the crime during five days’ leave from Risley jail, Warrington, where he was serving a 30-month sentence for kidnap.No one looked for Whitehouse – who was known to have a psychopathic personality disorder – for more than four months until he attacked Ms Bromiley in Brighton after meeting her at a day centre for unemployed people.The fugitive is described as a white man, 6ft 5ins tall of slim build with short grey hair, grey moustache and a goatee style beard. He has an eagle tattoo on his left arm and a leopard on his right arm.
Noble said it will shine a light on an artist who has not been given his due. The Tate finally staged a major Lowry exhibition in 2013, after keeping its paintings by the artist in storage. “We were delighted to have her. How many great parts are there for an 81-year-old woman? There are very few. In fact, actors very often say things start running out when you get to 50 unless you’re Judi Dench or Maggie Smith,” said Adrian Noble, former artistic director of the Royal Shakespeare Company and director of the film. “There was one painting of his that she liked, of sailing boats, which he painted around 1930 before he found his style. That’s a bit like saying to Picasso that you like the work he did before he started doing funny shapes.”Mrs Lowry did not live to see her son become successful. She died in 1939. A year later, Lowry painted The Bedroom, Pendlebury, an image of the bed in which his mother spent the last years of her life. The film is adapted by Martyn Hesford from his own play. With six Oscar nominations to her name, Vanessa Redgrave has taken on plenty of demanding roles. Her new film presents a different challenge: she spends the entirety of it in bed.Redgrave plays Elizabeth Lowry, the mother of LS Lowry, in a film charting the pair’s difficult relationship.Mrs Lowry & Son stars Timothy Spall as the artist whose paintings of ‘matchstick men’ are beloved by the public but sniffed at by many in the art establishment.Elizabeth Lowry was a domineering figure, depressed and bedridden for the latter part of her life. Following her husband’s death, she and her son shared a cramped terraced house in Pendlebury, Greater Manchester.Lowry worked as a rent collector by day and a carer for his mother by night. She detested his art and he was able to paint only after she had fallen asleep for the night. The casting of Redgrave is a coup for the film, which was made on a budget of just £1.5 million. Timothy Spall as L.S. Lowri A painting by English artist LS LowryCredit:Imperial War Museums Artist L.S. Lowry standing in his hometown of Pendlebury, Lancashire, 1964Credit:Hulton Archive “And we have absolutely made her bedbound, as the real Mrs Lowry was. Every one of her scenes is in that bedroom.” This is Spall’s second film portrayal of a famous British artist: he played JMW Turner in Mike Leigh’s 2014 film, Mr Turner.Explaining the relationship between Lowry and his mother, Noble said: “The word ‘complex’ is an understatement. The film is about a very particular form of love.”Lowry was in this rather curious position of being a carer, almost a full-time carer, for a woman who despised his art. She loathed it because it depicts a world of the working classes, a world of poverty, that she resented. She wanted to be middle class but lived in a poor area in a two-up two-down, and she hated that. Sir Ian McKellen was among those who accused London galleries of dismissing Lowry as “only a Sunday painter”. Noble said: “Lowry’s genius was to capture that modern phenomenon: that we live in cities but we are all very lonely. It’s a particular urban view of our lot.”He saw beauty not in the natural world but the created world, in factories and mills and chimneys. But there is a snobbery towards him. It’s this cancer in British society, the cancer of snobbery, that you don’t get in America or elsewhere.”The audience for this film isn’t people who know everything about Lowry, although that would be great. It’s a wonderful, surprising, beautiful and complex story, and you get to see these two amazing actors at work.”Filming has just finished on ‘Mrs Lowry and Son’ and the film is expected to be released next year (2019).

Wednesday 28 Feb 2018, 10:25 AM Short URL Dublin homeless executive received over 200 reports about rough sleepers overnight The Taoiseach said only a small number of people refused the offer of accommodation. Feb 28th 2018, 10:25 AM THE DUBLIN HOMELESS executive has said it had an “incredible response” from the public on its rough sleeper reporting system overnight.Members of the public had been asked to use the system, which can be found here, to alert the council’s service to homeless people who were sleeping on the streets during the snow storm.“We had over 220 overnight, but some of them are duplicates and a few for outside the Dublin region,” a spokesperson told TheJournal.ie, adding that the executive is “extremely grateful” for the reports.“This has enabled the Housing First outreach teams to locate and engage with people sleeping rough and work with them to access shelter and more importantly the teams have been able to engage with people who would not normally come into services,” they said.“We are asking the public to continue to use this invaluable link to help us get people into shelter during this extreme weather. Since we have implemented our contingency plans anyone that looked for emergency shelter has been accommodated.”Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy also spoke with RTÉ’s Ryan Tubridy about the “huge response” the executive had overnight.“Right now our focus this week is on making sure we can get people in and get them into safe warm accommodation,” he said.Speaking to Newstalk Breakfast earlier, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said fewer than a dozen people refused the offer of accomodation.The Peter McVerry Trust said it accommodated 81 people at a south inner city sports centre last night. Working with the homeless executive and other charities, it said three individuals in the city centre who were sleeping rough accepted supports but declined offers of accomodation.In Kildare, the council/Peter McVerry freephone number received 14 calls overnight from homeless individuals. One person needed advice and information and 13 people were accommodated within its services.The charity said gardaí assisted with transport for three people to its services late last night and one person was transported by the army at 2am last night from the Curragh area.Inner City Helping Homeless told TheJournal.ie that its walking teams assisted over 80 people overnight.Homelessness charity Depaul said it has put provisions in place to keep more than 200 emergency one night only beds open 24hrs a day during the severe weather forecast for this week.Brú Aimsir, Little Britain Street, Mount Brown and Blessington Street hostels will remain open 24 hrs until Sunday, 4 March.“One Night Only hostels are usually partial access, meaning service users, generally, have to leave the hostel at 10am and cannot regain access until 6pm, often with nowhere to go. It is vitally important that measures are put in place during extremely cold weather to prevent vulnerable homeless people from being put at risk,” the charity said this morning.Depaul management and staff have agreed to work additional shifts and put in place emergency plans ahead of the extreme weather warning so that as many people as possible can be kept inside and out of the dangerous weather conditions.Read: Live traffic and travel updates as the Beast from the East hit Ireland overnight> 6,875 Views Image: RollingNews.ie Share102 Tweet Email2 Image: RollingNews.ie By Michelle Hennessy Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article 15 Comments https://jrnl.ie/3876221

Getty A key witness in Apple’s patent case against Qualcomm will testify at the trial after all, a development that follows the iPhone maker saying yesterday that he was no longer intending to appear.The two tech giants are warring over three patents that Qualcomm says Apple infringed when it developed some versions of its iPhone. One of those patents allows a smartphone to quickly connect to the internet once the device has booted up. Apple has argued that one of its then-engineers, Arjuna Siva, co-invented the technology and should be named on the patent. Siva had been expected to testify at the trial, which is taking place in San Diego. But on Thursday, Apple lawyer Juanita Brooks said the engineer wouldn’t appear on the advice of newly retained counsel. On Friday, the situation changed again, when Brooks said Apple had filed subpoenas for Siva and Matt Warren, his counsel. Siva, Brooks said, had gotten yet another new attorney, who was amenable to having him testify. Siva, who now works at Google, is expected to testify in court on Monday.The patent case is just one part of a wide-ranging legal saga between the two companies. Two years ago, the Federal Trade Commission, aided by tech giants tincluding Apple and Intel, accused Qualcomm of operating a monopoly in modem chips. The agency argued Qualcomm’s high royalty rates stopped competitors from entering the market, which has driven up the cost of phones and hurt consumers. That trial took place in January, and the parties are currently waiting for a decision.The San Diego trial, presided over by US District Judge Dana Sabraw, is more technical than the other parts of the legal battle. But it could have implications for how your phone is made and how much it costs.Aside from the boot-up patent, the companies are fighting over two others. One of them deals with graphics processing and battery life. The third lets apps on your phone download data more easily by directing traffic between the apps processor and the modem. On Friday, Qualcomm said it wants $31 million in damages from Apple. That’s based on $1.40 per allegedly infringing iPhone.On Thursday, Apple initially alleged witness tampering because Siva’s new counsel was a former attorney at Quinn Emanuel, the law firm now representing Qualcomm.Originally published March 8, 9:27 a.m. PT.Update, 1:25 p.m.: Adds information about damages.

AFPFrancibel Contreras brings her three malnourished children to a soup kitchen in the dangerous hillside Caracas slum of Petare where they scoop in spoonfuls of rice and scrambled eggs in what could be their only meal of the day.Part of the tragedy of daily life in socialist Venezuela can be glimpsed in this small volunteer soup kitchen in the heart of one of Latin America’s biggest slums, which helps dozens of children as well as unemployed mothers who can no longer feed them.Some Venezuelans manage to endure the nation’s economic meltdown by clinging to the shrinking number of well-paid jobs or by receiving some of the hundreds of millions of dollars sent home by friends and relatives abroad – a quantity that has swollen in recent years as millions of Venezuelans have fled.But a growing percentage of people across the country, especially in slums like Petare, are struggling to cope.Contreras’s husband, Jorge Flores, used to have a small stand at a local market selling things like bananas and yucca, eggs and lunchmeat – trying to scrape out a profit in a place where hyperinflation often made his wholesale costs double from day to day. Then he was robbed at gunpoint by a local gang. And his brother crashed the motorcycle he used to supply his stand.So Flores abandoned the market stall and looked for other work. He does some plumbing jobs and the family has turned its living room into a barbershop, sheltered beneath a corrugated metal roof held down by loose bricks and planks. It’s decorated with origami-like stars that the family has made out of Venezuela’s colorful but rapidly depreciating bolivar bills.”Our currency is worthless,” Contreras said. “These days, I prefer trading a bag of flour for a manicure or a haircut.”The scarcity of milk, medicine and other basics – along with routine violence – has eroded support for socialist President Nicolas Maduro even in poor neighborhoods like Petare that once were his strongholds. Maduro says there’s an opposition-led plot to oust him from power and says U.S. economic sanctions and local opposition sabotage are responsible for the meltdown.Various local polls show he retains support from roughly a fifth of the population, many of them ideological stalwarts, government-connected insiders or poor voters dependent on government handouts, including the so-called CLAP boxes of oil, flour, rice, pasta, canned tuna and other goods that arrive several times a year.Contreras’ family of four gets those boxes, but it’s not enough to get by on for long. For months, they’ve been relying on the soup kitchen launched by opposition politicians as the main source of protein for their children. On a recent day, her 7-year-old son Jorbeicker played a pickup soccer game in the hilly, dusty streets in front of her home, while her husband practiced styling his mother’s hair.”I’m barely getting by,” Flores said, scissors in hand.The four-day power outage that brought most of Venezuela to a halt this month added to Flores’ misery. He wasn’t able to use the electric clippers needed to give customers the sort of trims they demand.”It hit us in a big way,” he said. “You absolutely need the clippers.”The couple estimates the power outage cost the family the equivalent of $11 in missed haircuts – a significant sum in a country where the minimum wage amounts to $6 a month, even if most people supplement that figure by working side jobs and pooling resources with friends and neighbors.Contreras and Flores charge 2,500 bolivars – about 70 U.S. cents – for a trim. A government-subsidized kilogram of flour can cost almost three times that, and Contreras says that lines for the rationed goods can be endless and she sometimes comes back empty-handed. She also said she feels unsafe in the lines. Dozens of people have been killed in gang crossfires over the years, and some have been crushed to death when lines of shoppers turned into stampedes of desperate looters.Next-door neighbor Dugleidi Salcedo sent her 4-year-old daughter to live with an aunt in the city of Maracay, two hours away, because she could no longer feed her. “My boys cry,” the single mother of four said. “But they resist more than her when I tell them that there’s no food.”After walking back from the soup kitchen, she opened the rusty door to her home of scraped, mint-colored walls. Inside, her 11-year-old son Daniel, who was born partially paralyzed and with developmental disabilities, lay on a stained couch while flies flew over his twisted, uncovered legs.When she took the lid off a plastic container to show her last bag of flour, a cockroach crawled out, making her jump back and scream.”This is so tough,” she said. “I don’t have a job. I don’t have any money.”Salcedo used to sell baked goods and juices to neighbors from the window of her kitchen. Then, her fridge broke down and she couldn’t find the money to fix it.These days, she relies on the kindness of neighbors, or asks a friend who owns a small food shop for credit while she waits for loans from family members in other parts of Venezuela.”This country has never been as bad,” the 28-year-old said. “Just buying some rice or flour is something so hard, so expensive, and often, they don’t even have any.”A few days later, thieves broke into the soup kitchen and stole food. Then, a fire broke out in the slum, burning 17 homes to the ground. It was caused by candles that were apparently being used for light after a power outage – an almost everyday occurrence in many parts of Venezuela. Opposition lawmaker Manuela Bolivar, whose Nodriza Project runs the soup kitchen, said that when firefighters arrived, they lacked water and had to put out the blaze with dirt.”It’s a social earthquake,” Bolivar said.”They lose their homes. They’re left in the open air. The soup kitchen was robbed. It’s so many adversities: It’s the infections, the lack of water and food.”At an outdoor market a short distance from Petare in the middle-class district of Los Dos Caminos, Carmen Gimenez shopped for carrots and other vegetables for a stew. When her 14-year-old daughter Camila asked if they could take some other products, she told her that they would have to stick to the basics.Although she has a job at a bank, she still struggles to make ends meet.”It doesn’t matter where you live. The need is the same,” said Gimenez, 43.”The poor, the rich, and the middle class – we’re all suffering somehow because the government has leveled us all downwards,” she adds with anger. “How did they dominate us? Through the stomach.”
Kolkata: In a stride towards reducing the electricity bill and curbing pollution, the Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) has decided to use solar power for electricity production in the municipal markets in the city.There are 46 markets in the city under the aegis of KMC and the civic body has decided to kick off the solar lighting project from Lake Market and Gariahat Market in South Kolkata.A senior official of the civic body said, “We have already started the process of introducing solar power in these two markets. A budget of Rs 2.5 crore has been earmarked for it.” The matter will soon be placed for approval at the member Mayor in Council (MMiC) meeting, which is the decision making body of KMC. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsSolar power and renewable energy expert Santipada Gon Chowdhury said that there is reasonable amount of space in these two markets for installing solar panels. “We are hopeful that power bill will come down reasonably following this,” Gon Chowdhury said.Solar grids with capacity of 200 kilowatt each will be created in these two markets. However, normal electric connection will continue for sometime even after fitting the solar panels.Solar power has already been introduced by KMC in a number of areas in the city like Deshapriya Park, College Square, Maddox Square, Jatin Das Park, Deshbandhu Park etc and the electricity bills have reduced considerably. The civic body saves around Rs 8,000 a month on electricity in the areas.
4 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Register Now » May 25, 2017 Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Artificial intelligence (AI) is changing the face of business. No longer a futuristic concept, its impact is real. From tech giants like Google, Apple and Amazon to user-centric behemoths like Uber and Starbucks, everyone seems to be using AI technology to transform the customer experience (CX). But, it’s not just corporate giants that are deploying AI. Smaller organizations are following suit.Across industries, small businesses are investigating how AI can help them drive down costs, better accommodate customers and remain competitive with their increasingly tech-driven peers. For small businesses unfamiliar with AI, the prospect of rolling it out can be daunting. But, by adopting a strategic approach, small businesses can get a head start on harnessing AI and reaping the benefits it offers. Related: The Big Trends from Google I/O 2017Applying AI: Learning from StarbucksStarbucks is one notable example of an enterprise that’s embracing artificial intelligence to optimize its CX. At the end of January, the company announced that it would offer voice ordering capabilities via Alexa, Amazon’s cloud-based virtual assistant with a continuously expanding base of skills. Linking up with Amazon, the coffee giant created a new Alexa skill specifically geared toward ordering at Starbucks. The skill — called Starbucks Reorder — provides users with a voice-activated way to place their typical order (“Alexa, tell Starbucks to start my usual order.”) or check their card balance.Currently in the beta phase, Starbucks’ evolving use of Alexa points to the experimental approach companies are willing to take when it comes to deploying AI. While big business use of AI is generating the most publicity, small businesses should also consider how they can leverage the technology to meet customer needs.Related: 8 Companies Changing How Machine Learning Is UsedAs customers become accustomed to AI-powered solutions like Starbucks’ Alexa offering, they’ll expect the same from their local businesses. Here are some proactive steps small organizations can take to lay the groundwork for business-applied AI:Give AI a try in your personal life. Before deciding if AI is appropriate for their companies, small business owners should put on their consumer hats and use the technology outside of work. Test out Amazon Alexa or Google Home to determine what you like and dislike about the devices, and how your own customers might use similar technology to interact with your business. Brainstorm ways you could potentially weave AI into your company and weigh the pros and cons of implementing emerging tech.Lay out business-specific AI goals. Small businesses shouldn’t approach AI without a set plan — it’s crucial to prioritize specific applications for artificial intelligence technology. For instance, if you run a clothing store, perhaps you’ll look into predictive analytics technology to reduce staffing inefficiencies. Alternately, if you own a restaurant, you may focus more on the potential of autonomous delivery vehicles. And if you’re a company with complicated accounting, you might look to ease the process with AI. By setting specific and highly focused goals, small businesses can more easily lay out a game plan to fulfill them.Related: How to Learn Anything in the Age of AIGet your IT capabilities up to speed. As a November 2016 study on the mounting adoption of AI pointed out, difficulty tracking and making sense of data is one of the key roadblocks enterprises face when deploying artificial intelligence. Small businesses cannot benefit from AI if they lack the IT infrastructure to support it. Therefore, smaller organizations should begin their journey toward AI by adopting a modernized approach to IT — one that moves away from legacy on-premises solutions and toward cloud-powered resources that will be able to scale up as artificial intelligence technology is implemented.Track the growth of AI. Actively following the evolution of AI now will pay dividends in the long run. Even if your small business isn’t currently ready to deploy emerging AI tools, it’s important to keep a close eye on the market. That way, you’ll see when technologies emerge that may benefit your business — and you’ll be able to track the AI moves your competitors are making so you don’t fall behind.As the examples set by companies like Starbucks illustrate, businesses are pursuing AI to optimize operations and improve the customer experience. By actively making an effort to learn about and embrace artificial intelligence, small businesses can prepare for a future powered by AI solutions.
