Rabat – As Rabat and Brussels show no signs of reaching an agreement following a month-long negotiations to renew the EU-Morocco fisheries deal, Europeans fishing boats have started preparing to leave Moroccan waters, heightening fishermen’s concerns about the future of the deal and raising questions as to how long the rift between the two strategic partners will last.During the third rounds of the fisheries deal-related discussions between Morocco and its EU partners, the North African nation hardened its stance and asked for a financial compensation of MAD 800 million, as opposed to the 400 million of the expiring agreement.According to Moroccan outlet Akhbar Al Youm, European diplomats did not compromise with Morocco’s financial demands for renewing the deal, leading European boats no choice but to depart from Moroccan waters since the deal expires on July 14. The Casablanca-based daily reported that European fishermen have until July 15 to leave Moroccan coasts.“The worst that could have been carefully prevented has finally happened,” complained Javier Garat, a Spanish fisherman president of the association of European fishing companies operating in Moroccan waters under the terms of the EU-Morocco deal.  For Garat, however, it is just a matter of time before Rabat and Brussels manage to find a mutually acceptable basis for renewal, as both parties have reaped enormous benefits off the agreement in the recent years.“The two parties have converging positions, but there exist some minor details [differences] that have not been addressed,” the Spanish said. He added, however, that European fishermen will have to wait for weeks or even a year before the two parties satisfy all the diplomatic and bureaucratic requirements associated with the renewal process.Citing Spanish sources, Akhbar Al Youm reported that further discussions are expected between Rabat and Brussels given that European fishermen and many workers’ rights advocacy groups are putting enormous pressure on their respective governments to save the “crucial” agreement.“It would be a great pity if the deal is not renewed by its expiry date, because Morocco has made it clear that during second roundtables that all European boats should depart from European water [should Brussels fail to compromise],” Pedro Maza, president of a fishermen’s association in Spain, said last month amid rumors that Brussels and Rabat were having a hard time finding a common ground regarding the renewal of the fisheries agreement.But even in the event of new discussions to renew the deal, Rabat is very unlikely to compromise on its current position. This week, Aziz Akhannouch, Morocco’s Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries, and Rural Development, was adamant about Morocco’s requirements to sign a new deal.In addition to the MAD 800 million Morocco is requesting from the EU as financial compensation, European fishermen and fishing companies should henceforth be careful about other tiny details of the deal, including quantity, species, and biodiversity, the Moroccan minister said. read more

OTTAWA — The head of one of Canada’s largest banks is urging the federal government to stem the flow of investment capital from this country to the United States — because, he warns, it’s already leaving in “real time.”RBC president and CEO Dave McKay discussed some of his biggest concerns about Canadian competitiveness, particularly those related to recent U.S. tax reforms, during a recent interview.Ottawa has come under pressure from corporate Canada to respond to a U.S. tax overhaul that’s expected to lure business investments south of the border.McKay told The Canadian Press that a “significant” investment exodus to the U.S. is already underway, especially in the energy and clean-technology sectors.The flight of capital, McKay added, will likely be followed by a loss of talent, which means the next generation of engineers, problem solvers and intellectual property could be created not north of the border, but south of it instead.“We would certainly encourage the federal government to look at these issues because, in real time, we’re seeing capital flow out of the country,” McKay said.“We see our government going around the world saying what a great place Canada is to invest — yes, it is a great country, it’s an inclusive country, it’s a diverse country, it’s got great people assets.“But if we don’t keep the capital here, we can’t keep the people here — and these changes are important to bring human capital and financial capital together in one place.”Since the election of U.S. President Donald Trump, Canada’s investment landscape has been dealing with deep uncertainty related the ongoing renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement.But many point to Trump’s recent U.S. tax measures as potentially more dangerous, fearing that dramatic corporate tax cuts in the U.S. will eliminate Canada’s advantage.Canada’s competitiveness challenges go beyond the high-level, tax-rate changes in the U.S. bill, McKay said.For instance, he pointed to another important element he said is encouraging capital to flow out of Canada — a change that enables U.S. companies to immediately write off the full cost of new machinery and equipment.“The acceleration of that in the U.S. completely changes the investment returns that you see on major investments,” said McKay. “I think that alone may shrink competitiveness.”Tax expert Jack Mintz said the U.S. change allows firms in all sectors to expense the full cost of new equipment. In comparison, he said, Canada has a two-year write-off for equipment for just the manufacturing and the processing sectors.Mintz, a University of Calgary professor, said he believes the expensing of capital investments is encouraging a lot of companies to shift their investments to the U.S.Although the business community pressed federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau to take specific steps in his February budget to address the competitiveness concerns, their efforts went unrewarded. Indeed, Morneau has had to defend the budget against complaints it didn’t do enough to protect Canada from the U.S. tax changes.A spokesman for Morneau did the same, arguing that Canada’s corporate tax rates remain competitive and that the country has led the G7 in growth.“There will be no knee-jerk reactions from this minister, and we are doing our homework,” Daniel Lauzon wrote in an email. “This includes listening to, and hearing from, the business community on how the competitive environment is evolving.”John Manley, president of the Business Council of Canada, said the issue of competitiveness was “absent” from the federal budget.“We’re always in this difficult competition to attract investment and to retain investment — and it’s not to be taken lightly because investment can move quickly,” Manley said.Regardless of the cause, some experts are seeing signs in the economic data that suggest capital is already flying south.BMO chief economist Douglas Porter said it’s too early to draw conclusions, but the fact the Canadian equity market and currency have both been on the weak side this year supports the possibility that capital is leaving the country.The Canadian dollar is one of the few currencies in the world to weaken against the U.S. dollar this year, and for no immediately apparent reason, Porter said.None of the provincial budgets released so far took steps to improve Canada’s competitiveness, such as tax relief, he added. read more

first_imgScarlett Johansson as Black Widow in Avengers: EndgameTwitterLeading the Avengers to unsnap the snap committed by Thanos was not Black Widow’s original jam. Directors Joe and Anthony Russo, in a spoiler-filled interview with Slate’s The Gist podcast, revealed that Black Widow’s (played by Scarlett Johansson) back story for Endgame was completely different.As per the directors, Black Widow aka Natasha Romanoff was supposed to dedicate her time to educate children and not take over Nick Fury’s job of assembling the Avengers. Speaking on the same, Anthony Russo said, “One thing that we talked about a lot – and I thought was really profound, but it was almost too large of an idea for us to wrangle, but we did try for a while – the idea that one-quarter of all children have no parents.”To this, Joe Russo added, “Assuming you started with two parents. So that’s a lot of global orphans. Just the staggering number of that. I believe at one point really early in development, Black Widow was actually leading the organization in D.C. that was in charge of orphans, basically. That was what she was heading up five years later. But yes, it’s fascinating when you start running it down.” From a script where she only dealt with kids to one where she took on the role of a coordinator to bring together the Avengers, Black Widow surely got an upgrade!One of the main reasons why Black Widow’s sacrifice was so impacting apart from Iron Man’s was because she dedicated her years to the makeshift family formerly brought together by Nick Fury. She basically became the person heavily invested in coordinating with the Avengers’ heroic activities on Earth and space. Black Widow in a still from Avengers: EndgameInstagramAvengers: Endgame has been working phenomenally at the box office. In fact, it is inching closer to dethrone James Cameron’s Avatar and become the highest grossing film of all time. Considering how the film has a long run at the box office as the shows are being actively run across theatres in major countries, perhaps they might be able to achieve this feat!While Avengers: Endgame is considered to be the final film for the franchise, the Russo brothers have stated that Spider-Man: Far From Home starring Tom Holland and Jake Gyllenhaal will be the final film to the third phase of Marvel Cinematic Universe.last_img read more

first_img Top Movie and TV Trailers You Might Have Missed This WeekAmerican Horror Story Takes Us Back to the Days of Witches and Warlocks Stay on target American Horror Story‘s showrunners promised us that everything would change in episode six. They weren’t lying. Right off the bat, things are different. We’re told that after the success of “My Roanoke Nightmare,” the network wanted a sequel series.The show begins with the producer of the show, Sydney filming his pitch meeting with the network execs. His idea: “Return to Roanoke: 3 Days in Hell.” It’s a Big Brother-style reality show where the “real” Millers and the actors who play them in the reenactments, will live in the Roanoke house together during the Blood Moon. Sydney implies that all the horrors will be fake.He meets with Shelby, and we learn she had an affair with Dominic, the actor who played Matt in the reenactments. She doesn’t want to do the show and only agreed because it will give her a chance to reconnect with Matt. The real Matt. She requests that Dominic not be a part of the show. The producer agrees, but it turns out they just booked him on the show. He’ll be there.Immediately, weird things start happening on set. (Photo: Screenshot via FX)Two weeks before the Blood Moon, we see the house being prepared. Cameras are being put in the walls, and parts of the house are being rigged with pop-up scares. The producers argue over whether the fake jump scares are really necessary, but are interrupted by a crew member. They find that someone has left a circle of bloody fetal pigs by a tree. Someone suggests it might be the Polk family, but we learn that they haven’t been seen in months.Sidney meets with Agnes Mary Winstead, the actress who played The Butcher, for what seems like a standard interview in preparation for the upcoming show. It turns out that after playing The Butcher, she had a psychotic break and ran through Hollywood with a cleaver. She insists she got help and is better now, but Sidney doesn’t believe her. He accuses her of leaving the circle of fetal pigs and serves her a restraining order. She is not to come anywhere near the house.Everyone involved in the production of the show seems to think that Lee murdered her husband. Part of the reason they’re doing this sequel series in the first place is to out Lee as a murderer. More of a concern, though, is the fact the actress who plays her is an alcoholic, and there will likely be alcohol on set. Before either of these concerns can be worked out, the producers are summoned to the set where a crew member has just died after being attacked by his own chainsaw.Diana sees something strange in the road. (Photo: Screenshot via FX)Sidney writes it off as an accident, but his partner, Diana is freaked out and quits the show. As she’s driving away, she records herself stating the exact reasons she’s leaving. Creepy things have been happening ever since she started working on the show. She sees a figure that looks a lot like The Butcher in front of her car. Because she knows exactly how horror movies work, she does not stop to see who it is. Her smart decision-making gets her nowhere, however, as she is grabbed by the pig-man from the backseat of her car. We’re told police found the footage we just saw weeks later. Her body was never found.We then meet Audrey Tindall, the actor who played Shelby in the reenactments. She reveals that she and Rory Monahan, who played Edward Mott, started dating during filming and have gotten married. They arrive at the house and see a figure who looks like Agnes break a window. We learn that Agnes had attacked Audrey’s home out of jealousy after Audrey won a Saturn Award for her performance.Matt and Lee arrive at the house, and things are immediately awkward between the real Matt and Shelby. They’re all given phones, but only the cameras on them work. You know, because working cell phones would ruin 99 percent of horror movies out there. They’re told to use the phone cameras to document their own experiences. Matt directs everyone’s attention to the almost-full red moon. Now, we’re finally told what kind of show we’re watching. Over the course of the blood moon, we’re told, every participant in the show died except for one. The show never aired and we are watching assembled footage of the events. The Blair Witch is strong with this one.Why would anyone willingly stay in this house? (Photo: Screenshot via FX)Audrey and Rory have sex in the hot tub while everyone else prepares to crash in their separate rooms. As Lee walks through the hall, the ghost of her ex-husband Mason passes behind her, burns all over, and stares directly into the camera. He’s not in any other shot. Audrey leaves Rory in the hot tub to take a shower while Shelby goes down to the basement to talk to Matt, who’s not sure if they’ll survive this time. Shelby suggests they leave the show and go home, but they’re interrupted by a knock at the door. Dominic arrives, and Matt flies into a rage and starts punching him. Rory breaks up the fight.Audrey gets out of the shower sees the pig-man in the mirror standing behind her. She runs downstairs and tells everyone what happened. Rory searches the upstairs but finds no pig-man. He does find two zombified nurses who stab him to death. Matt notices that the bloody writing on the wall is suddenly completed and now reads “MURDER.” He joins the others in the kitchen and announces, “The ‘R’ is for Rory.”This episode started out pretty slow. We had a lot of set-ups to get through before the scares started coming. Once all the pieces were in place, though, it all made for a pretty terrifying episode. It was especially interesting seeing the two nurses look completely different from what we’ve seen before. It’ll be fun to see what each monster/ghost/villain “really” looks like. The stakes are also higher now. For the first half of the season, we knew everyone survived. How else could they be telling us the story? Now, we know that all but one dies. Nobody is safe anymore, and the show feels tenser because of it.last_img read more

first_img More information: Extended disease resistance emerging from the fecal nest of a subterranean termite, To be published here: rspb.royalsocietypublishing.or … .1098/rspb.2013.1885 Citation: Study shows use of feces as building material by termites serves as antibiotic (2013, September 18) retrieved 18 August 2019 from ( —A team of researchers at the University of Florida has found that some termites use their own feces as an ingredient in building materials. Doing so, the group reports in their paper published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, offers the insects a natural antibacterial agent that helps them fend off infections that could harm them. Termites, as most are aware, cause damage to buildings that have a wood component—the insects eat the wood ruining its ability to maintain its stability. The tiny insects are also notoriously difficult to eradicate once they build a nest in an area and begin munching on building parts. Prior research has found that termites have two natural ways to fend off antibiotic agents. The first is that they have an immune system that is particularly good at fighting off fungal and bacterial infections. They second is they have evolved skills that help them keep bacteria at bay, such as nest cleaning, grooming nest mates, getting rid of those that die and at times eating their remains. In this new effort, the researchers have found that termites have a third type of defense against bacteria—they use their own feces as an ingredient when making a material they use to line the walls of their nests, resulting in nest foundations that are able to ward off bacteria.The researchers discovered the antibacterial properties of the building material in termite nests by digging up five Formosan subterranean termite colonies near the university. In studying the material the termites used to create the walls, the researchers discovered they had been made using feces and chewed wood. In exposing a large variety of bacteria to the material, the researchers found it capable of warding off a host of fungus and other bacteria. Next, the researchers put a colony of the termites into an artificial nest which had been exposed to a type of fungus that can kill termites. Adding bacteria from their natural building material, they found, helped the insects ward off fungal infections.The researchers say microbes in the feces are responsible for the antibacterial nature of the building material, which suggests that further study may yield a new source of antibacterial agent that humans might use to do the same.

first_img December 12, 2016 531 Views House Votes to Lighten Regulatory Load for Banks The new administration has promised reduced regulation for the financial industry, and they began moving toward that goal by voting to amend a section of Dodd-Frank. The U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 6392, the Systemic Risk Designation Improvement Act of 2016, by a vote of 254 to 161, earlier this month. The bill is now in the U.S. Senate for consideration.H.R. 6392 would change the way that Dodd-Frank determines that bank holding companies (BHCs) should be subject to enhanced supervision and prudential standards by the Federal Reserve if the BHCs experience material financial distress that could threaten the stability of the entire U.S financial system, i.e. too big to fail. The current process makes BHCs with $50 billion or more in consolidated assets automatically subject to the enhanced supervision and prudential standards from the Fed; H.R. 6392 calls for the Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC), an agency created by Dodd-Frank, to evaluate BHCs for heightened oversight by using “an indicator-based measurement approach established by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision to determine systemic importance, which considers each bank holding company’s size, interconnectedness, available substitutes, global cross-jurisdictional activity, and complexity.”The bill was introduced into the House on November 22 by Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-Missouri), who is the Chairman of the Housing and Insurance Subcommittee of the House Financial Services Committee.“The House passed legislation that would protect U.S. taxpayers from actual risk posed to the financial system. Decisions on what institutions are deemed systemically important should be based not on size alone, but also on activity and other factors that actually demonstrate systemic risk,” Luetkemeyer said. “The bottom line is that the current SIFI (systemically important financial institution) designation process is arbitrary and subjects banks with $50 billion or more in assets to the same standards as trillion dollar global SIFIs. This should not be a one-size-fits-all mold.”The vote wasn’t strictly along party lines, like nearly all bills previously introduced to amend parts of Dodd-Frank—though all 161 nay votes were Democrats, 20 Democrats still voted in favor of the bill along with 234 Republicans.One Representative who voted nay on H.R. 6392 was Maxine Waters (D-California), who was recently re-elected to a second term as Ranking Member of the House Financial Services Committee.“H.R. 6392 would repeal Dodd-Frank’s $50 billion threshold, above which banks are subject to closer regulatory scrutiny, and prevent the Federal Reserve Board from regulating these banks,” Waters said. “Instead, it would hand over that responsibility to the Financial Stability Oversight Council, or FSOC. In order to regulate the banks, the FSOC would have to go through a byzantine and litigious process of designation, which takes two to four years to complete.

CBS and CBS Sports Network will combine to show more than 45 hours of live coverage, with more than 20 hours on network television.Kwatinetz said in a phone interview with The Associated Press that the league’s interest in buying Fox’s regional sports networks played a role in a television deal not being completed until two months before the start of the season.“We are spending a lot of hours and time on getting the RSNs,” he said. “There was a time we thought the RSNs could be a good location for the games, but the way the timing with the Disney/Fox deals being delayed was a factor.”The Big3 remains one of the contenders for the 22 Fox RSN’s, which are being sold by Disney as one of the conditions of its merger with Fox. Major League Baseball and Liberty Media are the other known bidders.The Big3 sees the RSNs as the base for building a national network that appeals to young audiences.“There are not a lot of networks that embrace diversity, inclusion and appeal to youth. That is a gigantic gaping hole that the RSNs would serve to build a network like that,” Kwatinetz said. “Media companies have become so big and powerful that so much of getting viewpoints or access to public airwaves have become about leverage, power and money. That’s why there’s not enough diversity on television.”The league’s games were carried by Fox and Fox Sports 1 the past two seasons. The deal with CBS includes more coverage on a broadcast network along with possible ancillary programming showcasing the league. The Big3 draft on May 1 will be televised on CBS Sports Network.“We’re a young league and still have a lot to learn,” Kwatinetz said. “Being able to learn from (CBS Sports president) Sean McManus and the rest of his team is a huge advantage along with being on a big network.”The league is expanding to 12 teams and will be split into two divisions, with three games each on Saturday and Sunday. There will also be some weekends when games are played at two different sites in order to bring the league to more cities.Kwatinetz said that with the television deal completed, the league should be announcing its schedule in the next couple of weeks.___Follow Joe Reedy at Reedy, The Associated Presslast_img read more
