Closing Bell TSX closes little changed in wake of nuclear deal withClosing Bell TSX closes little changed in wake of nuclear deal with


TORONTO — The Toronto stock market closed little changed Monday as energy prices and stocks declined further after Iran and world powers arrived at an agreement about Iran’s nuclear program on the weekend.Here are the closing numbersTSX — 13,472.22 -6.12 -0.05%S&P 500 — 1,802.48 -2.28 -0.13%Dow — 16,072.54 +7.77 0.05%Nasdaq — 3,994.57 +2.92 0.07%The deal will allow Iran to keep the central elements of its uranium program while calling for it reduce enrichment to a level lower than what is needed for nuclear arms.The S&P/TSX composite index closed down 6.12 points to 13,472.22, with further pressure coming from mining stocks as gold prices fell following the announcement of the Iranian deal.“(Otherwise), any time you can remove a little bit of that geopolitical risk premium, it serves to bolster confidence a bit,” said Craig Fehr, Canadian markets specialist at Edward Jones in St. Louis.The Canadian dollar and other commodity-related currencies were lower Monday with the loonie losing 0.22 of a cent to 94.8 cents US.U.S. indexes lost early momentum but the Dow industrials added 7.77 points to 16,072.54 on top of its record performance last week while the S&P 500 drifted 2.28 points lower to 1,802.48. The Nasdaq edged up 2.92 points to 3,994.57 after earlier pushing through the 4,000-threshold for the first time since September 2000.Beyond Iran, attention is focused on the end of the week when investors get an indication of the success of the unofficial start of the U.S. holiday shopping season, otherwise known as Black Friday, so-called as it marks the start of the period when retailers make most of their money for the year.But prior to that, trading will likely start to wind down somewhat ahead of American Thanksgiving on Thursday, when U.S. markets will be closed. New York markets are open for a half-session on Friday.Also in the background are concerns that the U.S. Federal Reserve may decide to start cutting back on its US$85 of monthly bond purchases if economic performance allows. Those purchases have kept long-term rates low and encouraged investors to pile into the equity markets, resulting in the S&P 500 charging ahead 27% year to date.However, an increasing number of investors believe that stocks have run their course for 2013 and are due for a pullback soon.“I would like to see this market take a breather,” said Jim Lauder, a fund manager for Wells Fargo Advantage Dow Jones Target Date Funds in New York.The energy sector was down almost 1%. The January crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange fell 75 cents to US$94.09 a barrel, even though the agreement does not loosen sanctions on Iran’s oil exports.The deal with Tehran announced on the weekend raises the possibility that a more comprehensive agreement would eventually allow Iran to restore oil production to pre-sanctions levels. That could add one million barrels of oil a day to world markets, which would be enough to meet the entire global growth in demand for 2014 projected by the International Energy Agency.Suncor Energy (TSX:SU) gave back 72 cents to C$37.24.The base metals sector shed about 1% with December copper up a penny at US$3.22 a pound. Teck Resources (TSX:TCK.B) lost 43 cents to C$26.07.The TSX gold sector was down well over 1% during the session but ended up flat as increased risk appetite pushed December bullion down $2.90 to US$1,241.20 an ounce. Agnico Eagle Mines (TSX:AEM) gained 48 cents to $28.04 while Detour Gold Corp. (TSX:DGC) fell 50 cents or 11.7% to $3.77 amid an announcement that company founder and CEO Gerald Panneton has resigned, effective immediately.Industrials led advancers as Canadian Pacific Railway (TSX:CP) improved by $2.07 to $161.11.In corporate news, auto parts maker Martinrea International (TSX:MRE) was a major TSX decliner, down 77 cents or 8.37% to $8.43. The slide followed a 13% drop Friday, when it crossed below its 200-day moving average, an important technical indicator.Shares in Canadian cheese giant Saputo (TSX:SAP) were six cents higher to $48.60 after the company sweetened its bid for Australia’s oldest dairy processor. The company is offering A$9.20 per share if it acquires a majority of Warrnambool Cheese and Butter shares, which adds 20 cents per share to its unconditional offer and bests offers from two local rivals.TOP STORIESNew BlackBerry boss ousts firm’s top three execs in major shakeupDavid Rosenberg: The case for staying totally investedOil economies brace for major shakeup in energy sector when flood of Iranian oil hits marketBanks could withstand housing collapse, but consumers vulnerable, warns top financial watchdog WHAT’S ON DECK TUESDAYECONOMIC NEWSUNITED STATES8:30 a.m.Building permits (Oct) 9 a.m.S&P Case-Shiller home price index: Economists expect 0.9% rise from the month before, 13% year over year FHFA House price index (Sept, Q3) Economists expect 0.4% rise from month before, 2% (Q3) rise year over year 10 a.m.Conference Board consumer confidence index (Nov): Economists expect a reading of 72.6, up from last month CORPORATE NEWSCANADAAlimentation Couche-tard Inc Q2 earnings: Analysts expect $1.22 a share UNITED STATESAnalog Devices, Inc.

US President urges UN Member States to confront profound new challengesUS President urges UN Member States to confront profound new challenges


‹ › “I’ve made it clear that even when America’s core interests are not directly threatened, we stand ready to do our part to prevent mass atrocities and protect basic human rights. But we cannot and should not bear that burden alone,” Mr. Obama said.Turning to Syria, where, he said, “peaceful protests against an authoritarian regime were met with repression and slaughter,” and in the face of such carnage, many retreated to their sectarian identifies – Alawites and Sunni, Christian and Kurd – and the situation spiralled into civil war, the international community recognized the stakes early on, “but our response has not matched the scale of the challenge.”Mr. Obama said that Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad’s traditional allies have “propped him up,” citing principles of sovereignty to shield his regime. And on 21 August, the regime used chemical weapons in an attack that “killed more than 1,000 people, including hundreds of children.”He said that the crisis in Syria and the destabilization of the region goes to the heart of broader challenges that the international community must now confront. Putting key questions before Member States, he asked: “How should we respond to conflicts in the Middle East and North Africa? How do we address the choice of standing callously by while children are subjected to nerve gas, but we’re embroiling ourselves in someone else’s civil war? What is the role of the use of force?”He said that the US believed that as a starting point, the international community must enforce the ban on chemical weapons. When he had stated his willingness to order a limited strike against the Assad Government in response to the brazen use of chemical weapons, “I did not do so lightly. I did so because I believe it is in the national security interests of the United States and in the interest of the world to meaningfully enforce a prohibition whose origins are older than the United Nations itself.”The Syrian Government took a first step by giving an accounting of its stockpiles. Now, he said, there must be a strong Security Council resolution to verify that Damascus is keeping its commitments. “And there must be consequences if they fail to do so. If we cannot agree even on this, then it will show that the United Nations is incapable of enforcing the most basic of international laws.”He did not believe that military action by those within Syria or by external powers can achieve a lasting peace, nor that the US or any nation should determine who will lead Syria. “That is for the Syrian people to decide,” he said, welcoming the influence of all nations that can help bring about a peaceful resolution. As negotiations continue on the holding of an international peace conference on Syria, he urged UN Member States to step up to meet humanitarian needs in Syria and surrounding countries. On Iran, he acknowledged the deeply rooted mistrust between the two countries, dating back to 1979. And while he did not believe such difficult history could be overcome overnight, he did believe that if Washington and Tehran could resolve the issue of Iran’s nuclear programme, “that can serve as a major step down a long road toward a different relationship, one based on mutual interests and mutual respect.”Insisting that Tehran meet its responsibilities under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and Security Council resolutions, he also noted that Iran’s supreme leader has issued a fatwah against the development of nuclear weapons. And President Hassan Rouhani has just recently reiterated that Iran will never develop a nuclear weapon.Mr. Obama said he was directing US Secretary of State John Kerry to pursue a diplomatic course with the Iranian Government in close cooperation with the European Union, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Russia and China. As for the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, he said that the US will never compromise its commitment to Israel’s security, nor its support for its existence as a Jewish State. Likewise, the US remains committed to the belief that the Palestinian people have a right to live with security and dignity in their own sovereign State. “The time is now ripe for the entire international community to get behind the pursuit of peace. Already, Israeli and Palestinian leaders have demonstrated a willingness to take significant political risks,” he said, urging Member States to be willing to take risks as well. “Friends of Israel, including the United States, must recognize that Israel’s security as a Jewish and democratic State depends on the realization of a Palestinian State,” he said, adding that Arab States and those who support the Palestinians must recognize that stability will only be served through a two-State solution and a secure Israel.Later in the day UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon met with President Obama and, according to a readout issued by a spokesman for the UN chief, the two discussed the situation in Syria, and agreed on the importance of continued UN engagement on the issue of Syrian chemical weapons, as well as the importance of a political solution and the need to avoid further loss of life. Further to the readout, Mr. Ban and Mr. Obama discussed relations between the United States and Iran, and the importance of progress on the nuclear file. In addition, they discussed ongoing efforts in support of Somalia, Mali, Congo, Human Rights and UN reform.

Also pictured are US Ambassador Samantha Power and US National Security Advisor Susan Rice. UN Photo/Eskinder Debebe With the world facing a raft of “profound new challenges,” United States President Barack Obama challenged United Nations Member States today to evince the courage and determination to act decisively “when the breakdown of societies is so great [and] the violence against civilians so substantial.” “This body continues to be tested. The question is whether we possess the wisdom and the courage as […] members of an international community, to squarely meet those challenges: whether the United Nations can meet the test of our time,” Mr. Obama said, addressing the General Assembly’s annual General Debate.Indeed, he said, the leaders that had built the UN understood that humanity could not survive the course it was on. For decades the Organization has made a difference: eradicating disease, educating children and brokering peace. But as new challenges continued to arise, three will be times when the international community is called upon to act, stated Mr. Obama.“This will require new thinking and some very tough choices. While the United Nations was designed to prevent wars between States, increasingly we face the challenge of preventing slaughter within States,” he said, emphasizing that such challenges will grow more pronounced as the international community is confronted with States that are fragile or failing, “places where horrendous violence can put innocent men, women and children at risk with no hope of protection from their national institutions.” read more

Capital New York Implements PaywallCapital New York Implements Paywall


first_img“The enticement is that people who subscribe know exactly what they’re going to get,” says Jim VandeHei, president and CEO, in a call. “When they roll out of bed they know they’re going to have a newsletter ready, whiteboards throughout the day and stories that are smart.”Capital New York has yet to release a public announcement about the transition to a paid system, but VandeHei did say the move was modeled after parent company Politico.“Everything we’re doing at Capital is informed by success at Politico,” VandeHei says. “Will [our audience] respond the same way Politico readers did? We think so.”Washington D.C.-based Politico acquired Capital New York in September 2013 with grand plans for a Website redesign, premium-priced content verticals and even an 8,000-circulation magazine for readers in New York City and Albany, NY launching on Jan. 27.Capital New York has been able to grow traffic since its acquisition, now reaching over 650,000 readers and 1.3 million page views per month. VandeHei anticipates growing the audience base thanks to the lure and quality of published content that resonates outside the micro-verticals available on the free part of the Website.The long-term goal is to achieve a 50-50 distribution in revenue breakdown between advertising and subscriptions. Politico currently receives 70 percent of its revenue from advertisers and only 30 percent from subscribers. VandeHei is optimistic that Capital New York can reach that 50-50 target.“You’re not going to pay $7,500 for casual news,” says VandeHei. “We’re providing actionable news that’s important and useful and our audience knows that.” Capital New York, a city-centric news publication that targets city and state politics and the media industry at large, will implement a paywall next month for its three verticals—City Hall, Albany and Media—in February.The news, which Adweek broke Monday, comes without much fanfare as the initial decision was announced last November alongside the unveiling of a plan to relaunch its Website in December 2013.Capital New York is offering select organizations a discounted rate prior to the paywall going up. After going into effect, the price for five licenses will cost up to $5,990 annually.Capital New York subscribers will gain access to dozens of stories and real-time daily alerts in addition to an exclusive morning newsletter, customizable breaking news items for mobile devices and what they call “the whiteboard” for alerts on proprietary in-depth news stories.last_img read more


Tata Groups Indian Hotels to move Supreme Court in Taj Mansingh HotelTata Groups Indian Hotels to move Supreme Court in Taj Mansingh Hotel


first_imgIndian Hotels Company Limited (IHCL), which owns the Taj chain of hotels worldwide, has said that it would challenge the decision of the Delhi High Court that dismissed the company’s petition to prevent Delhi’s civic body NDMC from auctioning Taj Mansingh hotel in the country’s capital.IHCL had got the 3.78 acre property on lease by the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) on October 10, 1978 on a 33-year lease that expired in 2011. The agreement between NDMC and IHCL envisaged the civic body to construct the property, while IHCL would operate and maintain it. After the end of the lease, NDMC decided to auction the property, while the company objected to it.The company filed an injunction petition in April 2013 against the NDMC to restrain the civic body from going ahead with the auction. The petition was dismissed by a judge of the Delhi High Court on September 5, 2016.IHCL filed a plea against this decision with a division bench of the Delhi High Court, which upheld the September judgement on Thursday (October 27), paving the way for the auction of the hotel. As a last effort, the company intends to challenge it in the apex court.”The company proposes to challenge the dismissal of appeal in the Supreme Court,” IHCL said in a regulatory filing to the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE), referring to the October order.IHCL will be announcing its second quarter (Q2) results on November 4.last_img read more


Bengaluru is Indias most studentfriendly city here is global top 10 listBengaluru is Indias most studentfriendly city here is global top 10 list


first_img(Representational image)Spencer Platt/Getty ImagesBengaluru has been rated the best city for students in India. Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai came second, third and fourth, respectively, in the QS Best Student Cities ranking, compiled by global education consultancy QS Quacquarelli Symonds. The list was released on Wednesday, July 31.The 2019 global rankings inspected 120 cities across the world. The feedback from the current and prospective international students was also looked into.The list took the cost of living, job opportunities, number of universities as well as performances, quality of life and the diversity of the student body into consideration.London has been named the most student-friendly city globally, followed by Tokyo, Melbourne, Munich and Berlin.Bengaluru featured on the 81st position in the global ranking scale, followed by Mumbai in the 85th place. Delhi is on the 113th position and Chennai on 115th.Bengaluru houses many of India’s top universities, including Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore University, Ramaiah University, Christ University, REVA, and Acharya University.”Our ranking looks at cities that are attractive to students and in particular, to the international ones. As India’s main priority is to meet its domestic, rapid growth access to higher education, some of our criteria penalize the Indian megalopolis featured,” Ben Sowter, the research director at QS was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times.”Nevertheless, it is encouraging to see Bengaluru’s debut at the top of the national list and to see Mumbai growing in popularity among students. Both Delhi and Chennai perform very well on the affordability criterion, an aspect that it is essential to sustain the internal demand for university education,” he added.Here is the list of the top 10 student-friendly cities in the world:2019201920182018CitiesCities2019120181CitiesLondon2019220182CitiesTokyo2019320183CitiesMelbourne 2019420186CitiesMunich 2019520187CitiesBerlin2019620184CitiesMontreal2019720185CitiesParis2019820188CitiesZurich2019920189CitiesSydney201910201810CitiesSeoul 1010Seoul 75Paris 88Zurich 46Munich  57Berlin 22Tokyocenter_img 33Melbourne  64Montreal 11London 99Sydney 20192018Citieslast_img read more

Houstons Solar Use Grows But Still Lags Behind Other Texas CitiesHoustons Solar Use Grows But Still Lags Behind Other Texas Cities


first_imgHouston gets plenty of sun, but it’s not doing enough to turn that sunshine into power.File photoRooftop solar panels and the Houston skylineThat’s the finding from a new Environment Texas report that looks at a variety of data sources to track how much solar the nation’s 50 most populated cities are using.San Antonio made the top 10 list for installed solar capacity, while Austin came in 16th. Houston fared a little worse, coming in at 33rd. But Environment Texas Director Luke Metzger says there are some recent positive signs.“We’re seeing encouraging growth in the solar capacity for the city, going up by about a third,” he says. “And at the same time we’re seeing the municipal government make big investments in utility-scale solar.”Mayor Sylvester Turner has supported solar growth. He praised a recently-expanded deal for the city to buy all the power – 50 megawatts – from a new West Texas solar farm.Still, the report says Houston isn’t living up to its potential. Metzger says only .2% of the city’s rooftops have solar panels. The group argues a big reason for the slow growth is a lack of incentives from local utilities. Globally, solar is increasingly competitive against some traditional energy sources, but rooftop panels are still too expensive for many homeowners.

International Security Affairs.Bolton was also briefly part of the delegation holding talks with North Korea but was removed after he chose to make some scathing remarks about the leadership On the face of it therefore he’s bad news for Pyongyang And he is likely to strongly oppose President Donald Trump’s decision to parley with the "supreme leader" He would much prefer to pulverise him With regard to North Korea it is his reputation for being a non-proliferation guru that is likely to be of interest to India Proliferation from North Korea has long been a serious problem for New Delhi since there is a considerable body of evidence that it benefitted Pakistan’s missile program Bolton would be fully aware of this He was after all virtually the architect of the Proliferation Security Initiative (PSI) a programme aimed at preventing nuclear or missile related equipment being illegally shipped to ‘states of concern’ What will interest Bolton is whether there is a continuing pattern of nuclear assistance taking place particularly after Pyongyang claimed it tested a miniaturised nuclear weapon inAugust 2017?The parameters collected would be of immense interest to both Pakistan and China The likelihood of either or both financing the North Korean tests — which costs a prohibitive amount of money — is possible Indian intelligence agencies therefore need to exert themselves in this direction to provide grist to the Bolton mill of non-proliferation Bolton’s views on Iran are similarly harsh His own writing on the subject— and he writes a lot — is unequivocal calling it former president Barack Obama’s “diplomatic waterloo” which is as clear as it could possibly get While Bolton is widely known to have been the architect of the war against Iraq there was also enough to indicate that he would have liked to have extended this to Iran as well in one broad sweep of regime change Thankfully that didn’t take place At present however Bolton and his coterie are driven by the fear that the Ayatollahs are still fixated on getting a nuclear weapon for themselves Unfortunately this is a view shared by many most worryingly by Trump himself The hard fought nuclear deal by the earlier administration is however the bedrock of regional stability and as such is also vital for Indian security Though India has now begun the process of investment in our national currency the difficulties inherent to balancing our Iran policy with an intransigent US administration is likely to be fraught with difficulties The most problematic area of concern is likely to be Pakistan Bolton’s knowledge and more importantly his concerns about Pakistan are largely limited to its nuclear weapons and not terrorism per se Following the killing of Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan and the ensuing anger in the US Bolton argued that cutting aid was not an option since Pakistan’s nuclear weapons (from 60-100) could fall into the hands of radicals This seems to point to a very poor knowledge about the dynamics inherent to Pakistan’s proxy war strategy and its shrewd rattling of a nuclear sabre in aid of this The most recent statements attributed to Bolton where he warned that as a nuclear capable terrorist country Pakistan would be “like Iran or North Korea on steroids” typifies this view and underlines what his foremost concerns are: Of Pakistani nuclear weapons falling into the wrong hands Expect that in the coming days Pakistani analysts will be sent far and wide to take about just how unstable their country is likely to get in the midst of an upswing in radicalism and ergo the need for American aid to prevent such a horror Hopefully however Trump has Pakistan’s measure A businessman to the core he would still want to know what he gets out of his billions in aid Bolton as NSA will certainly retain all crusading convictions against the bad guys in part because this is what the American public likes to hear But going adventuring abroad goes against the grain of Trump’s beliefs that the administration should concentrate on building America and leave the rest of the world to chase itself round the block Bolton’s policies on North Korea and Iran are therefore likely to be tempered by Trump even as he gives free rein to his NSA to build up the military and modernise the nuclear arsenal Another round of nuclear one-upmanship is inevitable particularly in anti-ballistic missile technologies India has no particular reason to fear a hardening of policy other than on trade and that was inevitable anyway However it might well consider speeding up ways to get around the Civil Liability for Nuclear Damage Act 2010 and allow the India-US nuclear deal to reach its full potential so that US entry into the lucrative nuclear energy business can be facilitated Money talks always to neocons and liberals alike Explosive data Bland cover muffles alarm over shrinking budgets National Science Board A new analysis by the National Science Board reveals that the recent cuts in state support for the most research-intensive public universities in the United States have not occurred uniformly across the country But the board the oversight body for the National Science Foundation (NSF) warns that in toto the reductions are making it harder for those elite institutions to train the next generation of scientists and engineers and carry out world-class research The mixed picture of state spending patterns emerges from a report issued today that expands on information contained in the 2012 edition of the biennial Science and Engineering Indicators released in February Indicators is NSF’s statistical bible on the global science and engineering enterprise Indicators had already reported that state funding for the country’s 101 top public universities declined by an average of 20% on a per-student basis between 2002 and 2010 But that average hides considerable variation according to the new report For example New York with the 10th largest student population enrolled at its four research-intensive public universities has enjoyed a 72% increase in per-student funding from the state That’s the biggest jump for any state Wyoming with only one such institution ranked in the top 100 by research funding is close behind at 62% At the same time only three other states—Alaska North Dakota and Delaware—received a boost from state legislators in per-capita spending at their research-intensive universities (California has the most such institutions in the top 101 with nine followed by five each for Florida and Virginia Twenty-two states have a single public university on the list) And at none did the increase top 10% In comparison per-capita spending has declined over the decade in nine of the 10 states with the largest number of students enrolled in public research universities Four experienced a decline of at least 30% topped by a 37% drop at Illinois’ three such universities The state with the largest student enrollment California has suffered a 30% drop in per-capita support The squeeze on state budgets from the great recession of 2008 isn’t the only reason for the overall decline in per-capita state support however Recessions often trigger an increase in enrollment as unemployed workers go back to school to upgrade their job skills college graduates pursue advanced degrees and students feel more pressure to obtain a college degree Thus 47 of the 50 states saw enrollments rise over the decade and in four the growth exceeded 30% That double whammy—more students and fewer state dollars—has accelerated the spending decline on a per-capita basis "The Nation’s public research universities play a vital role in preparing the next generation of innovators" writes board chair Dan Arvizu in an introduction to the 34-page report "[T]he Board is concerned with the continued ability of these institutions to provide affordable quality education and training to a broad range of students" This is the board’s second report stemming from the 2012 Indicators; this spring it analyzed the role of research in stimulating innovation Arvizu says the board plans to revisit the perils facing public research universities in a companion piece to the 2014 Indicators report Myrdal questioned if Cain understood the level of oppression leveled at women and children under the Taliban, raccoons and
