Austrian leader says tax could deter investment in Romania

first_imgBUCHAREST, Romania — Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz has suggested that foreign companies could pull out of Romania after the government unveiled a surprise plan to levy extra taxes on banks and energy companies.Kurz was visiting Romania Friday before it takes over the European Union’s rotating presidency on Jan. 1. He said Austrian companies could “take their things and leave,” adding the measures could lead to job losses and price hikes, or deter investors.The message will be embarrassing for Prime Minister Viorica Dancila as the country prepares to take over the presidency from Austria.Finance Minister Eugen Teodorovici on Tuesday presented measures to remedy a fiscal shortfall that risked exceeding the EU’s limit of 3 per cent of GDP.The Romanian stock exchange dipped to a 10-year low after taxes on energy and telecommunication companies were announced.The Associated Presslast_img read more

Liberia Security Council issues list of individuals whose assets are to be

The United Nations Security Council has issued a list of associates of former Liberian President Charles Taylor, including his immediate family, whose assets are to be frozen under a resolution adopted earlier this year. The list released yesterday includes Mr. Taylor, his wife, Jewell Howard, son, Charles Jr., and two ex-wives, Agnes Reeves Taylor and Tupee Enid Taylor. Among the senior government officials and other associates named in the list was Viktor Anatoljevitch Bout, whom the Council says is a dealer and transporter of weapons and minerals that supported Mr. Taylor’s regime in an effort to destabilize Sierra Leone and gain illicit access to diamonds. In March, the Council adopted a resolution ordering countries to freeze the assets of named individuals to prevent them “from using misappropriated fund and property to interfere in the restoration of peace and stability in Liberia and the sub-region.” That text contained provisions exempting basic expenses, including payment for food, rent, mortgage, medicines and medical treatment, taxes, insurance premiums, public utility charges, or payment of reasonable professional and legal fees. read more

Situations in Africa Middle East key topics for Security Council in June

The Security Council will devote a considerable amount of its time this month to various situations on the African continent, while also closely following the events in Iraq and the wider Middle East, the President of the 15-nation body said today.Briefing the press on the Council’s work programme for the month of June, Ambassador Jean-Marc de la Sablière, of France, said priorities would include Côte d’Ivoire, Sudan, Burundi, Guinea Bissau and Liberia, making June “a very African month.” Ambassador de la Sablière said that this morning, the Council had discussed renewing and strengthening the mandate of the United Nations Operation in Côte d’Ivoire (UNOCI). Members were unanimous in their willingness to adopt the best possible draft resolution to support South African President Thabo Mbeki’s facilitation efforts, but a decision could not be taken until the third week of the month.Discussions on the situation in Darfur would include a presentation by the Secretary-General this afternoon on the outcome of the 26 May Addis Ababa donors conference and another, later in the month, by the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC). On 29 June, there would be two meetings on Sudan, one to discuss the North-South peace process and the other on the question of combating impunity. Regarding other African crises, Ambassador de la Sablière said that on 15 June, Burundi’s Minister of Justice would address the Council, at his own request, on the international investigative commission on crimes of genocide in his country. On 23 June, the Council would hear an update on the situation in Guinea-Bissau, where presidential elections were scheduled for 19 June. On Liberia, the Council would consider the report of experts on sanctions and discuss the renewal of those measures.Outside of Africa, he said that on 16 June, the Council would hear an update by the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI), a week before an international reconstruction conference on the country. Reports concerning the United Nations Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission (UNMOVIC) and the International Advisory and Monitoring Council for Iraq would also be heard during the month. The Council’s monthly consideration of the situation in the Middle East would take place on 17 June, just a few days before the important summit to be held between Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. Afghanistan would also feature on the Council’s agenda when it considers the provision of electoral support as well as combating the production and trafficking of drugs.

by News Staff Posted Sep 26, 2012 9:29 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email LONDON – The price of oil fell below US$91 a barrel Wednesday, tracking stock markets which dropped on renewed pessimism about the outlook for economic growth.Benchmark crude was down 59 cents to $90.78 a barrel by midmorning London time in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract dropped 56 cents to settle at $91.37 a barrel Tuesday in New York.Oil failed to get a lasting boost from an improvement in U.S. consumer confidence to its highest level since February. Markets were overshadowed by comments from Charles Plosser, president of the U.S. Federal Reserve’s Philadelphia branch, indicating that the Fed’s efforts to support the world’s biggest economy would likely fall short of its goals.The comments reinforced the current pessimism about growth prospects and dragged down stocks on Wall Street and then Asia. Disappointing news out Europe and Spain Wednesday also weighed on investors.The Commodity Research Team at Commerzbank said in a briefing that “the renewed escalation of the debt crisis in the eurozone, with violent protests in Spain against the planned new austerity measures, has sparked gloomier sentiment on the financial markets once again and is also putting oil prices under pressure.”Benchmark crude has fallen from near $100 since the middle of last month. Energy prices tend to fall when growth is slow because of lower demand. The U.S. economy is growing slowly. China’s export-driven economy has cooled off, largely due to Europe’s problems.Brent crude was down $1.06 cents at $109.39 a barrel on the ICE futures exchange in London. In other energy futures trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange heating oil was down two cents at $3.09 a gallon, wholesale gasoline gained three cents to $2.82 a gallon while natural gas gained two cents to $3.12 per 1,000 cubic feet.———(TSX:ECA, TSX:IMO, TSX:SU, TSX:HSE, NYSE:BP, NYSE:COP, NYSE:XOM, NYSE:CVX, TSX:CNQ, TSX:TLM, TSX:COS.UN, TSX:CVE) Price of oil falls to near US$91 a barrel on expectations of weak demand read more

He can afford to do what he wants.”Mr Caring, who is close friends with former BHS owner Sir Philip Green, made his fortune in the rag trade after leaving school at 16.He is now worth an estimated £700 million after also investing in high-end restaurants and clubs.One of the tycoon’s biggest pay days was during Sir Philip’s reign at BHS when he landed £93 million in share dividends. Richard with his wife Jacqui Richard with his wife JacquiCredit:Richard Young/REX/Shutterstock A restaurant tycoon’s wife could be in line for £350 million in one of Britain’s biggest divorces after ‘her husband left her and moved in with’ a Brazilian woman half her age.Multi-millionaire Richard Caring, 68, who owns a string of London restaurants including The Ivy, is said to have moved out of the north London home he shared with his wife of 45 years.It is alleged he has now moved in with his 35-year-old lover, Patricia Mondinni, with whom he has a young son.They are said to be living in a £32 million ten-bedroom gated mansion in St John’s Wood, north-west London, which includes an indoor pool.A friend of the Caring’s told The Sun: “Richard left Jacqui in February and is very happy with Patricia now. They had been living apart for some time before the split.” Mr Caring is also well-known for the fancy dress parties he throws Credit:REX/Shutterstockcenter_img Mr Caring is also well-known for the fancy dress parties he throws  Mr Caring, also a friend of Tony Blair, has been a major donor to both Labour and Tories and enjoys “non-dom” tax status due to his late father having been a US citizen.He met former model Jacqui, the daughter of a retired British Army major, after meeting her at a catwalk show.She gave up her modelling career three days after they were introduced and the pair went on to have two sons – Jamie, a vice-president of MTV Networks Europe, and Ben, who works for Soho House.Jacqui is still living in their north London home – dubbed ‘The Versailles of Hampstead’.Surrounded by ornamental gardens and high security fences, it has a 55ft ballroom, a private cinema, gilt and marble staircases and paintings by Degas and Matisse are hung on the walls.Lawyers told The Sun that Jacqui could be entitled to half his money.His spokesman said of the split: “No comment.”  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Nanny murderer writes of shock at victims death in  bizarre prison letter

First of all I wish everyone especially her parents and family well, all are suffering.“How deeply sorry I am for what happened and in fact we shared many good times.“Sophie I am shocked and sad that you are not part of this world any more. Sophie Lionnet's mother, Catherine Devallonne (right), and father, Patrick Lionnet (centre), arrive at the Old Bailey Ouissem Medouni and Sabrina Kouider in a court sketchCredit:Elizabeth Cook/PA When Miss Lionnet’s body was discovered in September last year, firefighters were convinced it was that of a small child because she was so emaciated after weeks of starvation. She had five fractured ribs and a cracked breast bone.Kouider had become obsessed with Mr Walton after a “very turbulent” two-year relationship which ended around 2013. She embarked on a campaign to ruin him before becoming paranoid that her “shy and timid” nanny was conspiring with him.In a psychotic condition known as a “folie à deux” – or “madness of two”, Kouider and Medouni, a former banker, began to reinforce each other’s fantasy world. They were found guilty of her murder following a trial. Sophie Lionnet’s mother, Catherine Devallonne (right), and father, Patrick Lionnet (left) arrive at the Old Bailey on TuesdayCredit:Nick Ansell /PA The patio where the body was found Sophie Lionnet was thin and gaunt in this picture two days before she was found deadCredit:Metropolitan Police Jailing them for life, Judge Nicholas Hilliard QC said the murderers had created a “complete fiction” about Miss Lionnet, whom they tortured in her final hours to make a “confession” about working with Mr Walton to undermine them. Sophie Lionnet A woman who tortured and murdered her nanny before burning her body has written a bizarre letter to her saying she is shocked she is dead.Sabrina Kouider wrote the letter from prison in which she apologised for killing au pair, Sophie Lionnet, adding that she wished she could “turn back the clock”.However, a judge at the Old Bailey yesterday rejected her claims of remorse and jailed Kouider and her partner, Ouissem Medouni, for a minimum of 30 years each.The court heard that Kouider, a 35-year-old fashion designer, suffered from a psychotic disorder and convinced her infatuated 40-year-old lover that their nanny was plotting with Mark Walton, a founder of the band Boyzone, to destroy them.Miss Lionnet, 21, suffered waterboarding, beatings and her body was dumped on a bonfire before her killers prepared a barbecue at their home in Wimbledon, South-west London. The victim’s father, Patrick Lionnet, said what the couple did to his shy and reserved daughter was “beyond comprehension” and “unforgivable”.In a letter addressed “dear Sophie”, Kouider acknowledged the suffering of her victim and her family, saying how “deeply sorry I am about what happened to Sophie”. Sophie Lionne, pictured two days before she was found He said her behaviour towards the victim was “entirely driven by Ms Kouider’s mental illness in her desperation to obtain evidence of Mr Walton’s abuse”.By the time of Miss Lionnet’s death, it was Medouni who had taken over the “dominant role” in her interrogations, the lawyer argued.But Orlando Pownall QC, said Kouider was the “dominant” party who preyed on the “weak”, including his client Medouni.He said the former banker had been “indoctrinated” by a woman with the capacity for “sudden and extreme violence”.”Such was the all consuming nature of his commitment to Sabrina he did not have that many friends at all.” He told them: “I’m sure on all the evidence you were both involved in torturing Sophie in the bath in the lead-up to her death in making her think she would drown unless you gave her information you wanted which was not in her power to give because it did not exist.“The suffering and the torture you put her through before her death was prolonged and without pity.”He added that Kouider was motivated by an unjustified desire to make Miss Lionnet and Mr Walton “suffer”.The defendants showed no reaction in the dock as they were sentenced.Following their convictions, Miss Lionnet’s tearful mother, Catherine Devallonne, said: “These self-obsessed individuals who murdered Sophie did not believe Sophie had a value.”Those monsters repeatedly beat Sophie. They starved, tortured and broke her until she could no longer fight. They took away her dignity and finally her life painfully ebbed away until Sophie struggled to take her final terrified breath in the bath.” Sabrina Kouider (right), 35, and Ouissem Medouni (left), 40, built a warped fantasy around music mogul Mark Walton and accused Sophie Lionnet of conspiring with him She wrote they shared some “good times” until “things went terribly wrong”.”I am shocked and sad you are not part of this world anymore. I’m suffering every day thinking of you and what happened to you that dreadful night. I only wish I could turn the clock back, it never happened and you would be alive with us today,” Kouider wrote.In mitigation, Icah Peart QC said the fashion designer’s delusional disorder coupled with an emotionally unstable personality disorder had caused her “irrational and completely overwhelming fear” that Miss Lionnet had been recruited by Mr Walton. read more

Notch backs out of funding Psychonauts 2 says asking price is too

first_imgLast year, Minecraft creator Markus Persson — or Notch, as he is usually known — lit the internet aflame when he told Tim Schafer that he would fund a sequel to the critically-acclaimed monetary failure Psychonauts. In an interview, Schafer said he’d love to do a sequel, but casually noted that someone would have to give him a few million dollars in order for that to happen. Swooping in like some sort of video game god king, Persson tweeted at Schafer and said that he would fund Psychonauts 2. This happened almost a year ago to the day, and now, Persson said that he’s pulling out of potentially funding the sequel, as the asking price is far too high.In a thread on Reddit, Persson said that the asking price to fund a Psychonauts sequel is $18 million, which is he uncomfortable with shelling out, noting that he only made one private game investment so far at $100,000, and that turned out to be more work than he thought.For those of you that might be surprised by that figure — that’s actually a little cheap for what is supposed to be a mainstream, triple-A title. The original Psychonauts actually ate up around $12 million to develop, so an extra $5 million for a current-gen game doesn’t seem like so much of a bump. To compare, Final Fantasy VII cost around $45 million to make way back in 1997. Grand Theft Auto IV burned a $100 million hole in Rockstar’s pockets. Though $18 million might not seem like an enormous amount by comparison, it’s at least too much for one man. However, Persson did say that if he were to eventually leave game development, he could get into investing.It’s no secret that Schafer wants to revisit the Psychonauts universe (even discussing it on Twitter every so often), and considering the proposed budget, it seems he (thankfully) doesn’t want to revisit it in any sort of way that might cheapen the franchise. Perhaps Double Fine could take to Kickstarter once again, and see if it can set a funding record.last_img read more

Man crashes into truck continues through fence in Five Corners

first_imgA man driving a Chrysler 300 crashed into a trailer truck and careened through a fence off Northeast Covington Road on Thursday afternoon.Clark County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Fred Neiman said responders suspect the crash resulted from a medical situation, and no citations have been issued.The crash happened at Northeast Covington Road and Northeast 102nd Avenue at about 12:18 p.m., according to an alert from Clark Regional Emergency Services Agency.Emergency radio traffic monitored at The Columbian suggested the driver was trapped following the crash, but Neiman said that wasn’t the case. It’s unclear if the man was conscious during the response, the sergeant said.The man was driving southbound on Covington Road when he ran through a red light and crashed into a trailer truck owned by a landscaping business. Then, the car continued through a fence and ended up against a power pole, Neiman said. Two people who were in the landscaping truck were taken to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries, Neiman said. “More as a precaution than anything,” he said.last_img read more

Sheriffs Office IRS phone scam hits Clark County

first_imgThe Clark County Sheriff’s Office is seeing an increase in reports of phone scams and is warning residents against falling victim.Within the past two weeks, the agency has taken 15 reports of scams where the caller claims to work for the Internal Revenue Service, said Det. Jason Granneman. The scammer calls Clark County residents and claims they owe money to the IRS. Then the caller demands that the residents pay the agency back by calling a number with an 867 area code and punching in a five-digit code, which the scammer provides.“They sound very formal and they are believable,” Granneman said. That, he said, is worrisome. The federal agency, however, is “certainly not going to call and demand you make a payment over the phone,” he said.The scammer on the other end of the line is very demanding and uses scare tactics to intimidate people, Granneman said.A tip to determine if someone is trying to scam you, Granneman said, is to ask for the person’s name, badge number and the name of the caller’s supervisor.“Any government agency is going to provide that to you; it’s required by law,” Granneman said.Another tip is to hang up and call the agency yourself to see if the phone call is legitimate.last_img read more

How Aud Dev and Analytics Support Content Creation

first_imgDvorkin’s four main support components of his newsroom are: 1. Analytics–consisting of a small team that monitors activity at the page and site levels. The data is then used to help editors determine what content resonates and drives engagement.2. Audience Development–another team that uses the data produced by the analytics team to develop KPIs and uncover new areas for audience growth.3. Contributor Support–These folks work closely with the content creators, combining production tools with data insights to help creators optimize their production.4. Programming–these guys also depend on AD and analytics to fast-track specific content packages and formats to maintain momentum created by content that resonates well with readers.Dvorkin adds that, depending how you look at it, data could be king, or audience development or content. Yet that classification is diluted by the circular nature of the process.Nevertheless, it’s clear that the entire structure moves forward on the basis of what the analytics and audience development folks are picking up from the community. The business of content generation and its concomitant sales operation are perpetually refined or even re-engineered through this process. Bill Mickey is executive editor of Audience Development magazine. Much has been said about the publishing life cycle of news content online and in print. At Forbes, where we’re kept apprised of the brand’s new print and digital developments by chief product officer Lewis Dvorkin’s blog posts, we can see how important analytics and audience development have become in content creation. Dvorkin argues that the top-down “caste system” of traditional newsrooms has been outmoded by the way content is consumed and shared digitally. “The self-imposed newsroom caste system has run its course,” he says in a recent post. “The three vital voices of the media business [content creators, audience members and marketers] now publish together and actually form relationships with one another.”The new newsroom, he says, is no longer a one-way operation where content is simply created and delivered to readers, rinse and repeat. The digital platform demands a much more interconnected process that links content with data (both demographic and feedback) and a strategic approach to production methods.Interestingly, as Dvorkin describes the four columns that support the newsroom structure, we can see how important analytics and audience development are to the entire process. last_img read more

Hernandez died in a hospital days later after the confrontation.Prosecutor Sarah Mickelson Seeley said there were attempts to get Thompson off of Hernandez, but Thompson was too strong. The prosecution admitted Hernandez was intoxicated.Thompson entered a not guilty plea and his defense attorney, Scot Courtney, didn’t deliver an opening statement but said he doesn’t anticipate prosecutors will present new evidence during the second trial.The first trial concluded in June with State District Judge Kelli Johnson declaring a mistrial.If convicted of murder, Thompson could be sentenced to life in prison.Chauna Thompson, wife of Terry Thompson, is also charged with murder for helping her husband hold down Hernandez.
