Trump touches down in London ahead of controversial state visit

first_imgThe trip is Trump’s official state visit, a formal event full of pomp and pageantry, to the UK. His trip last year was classed as a working visit.Like last year, Trump will be greeted in London by thousands of protestors when he meets PM May in Downing Street for talks on Tuesday.On Sunday mayor of London Sadiq Khan criticised the state visit, saying in the Observer newspaper that Britain should not be “rolling out the red carpet” for a President who he said has used xenophobia and racism “as an electoral tactic”.It is thought that the infamous “Trump baby” blimp – a giant balloon showing the President as a nappy-clad baby – will reappear, and be joined by a giant robot of the President sitting on a gold toilet.Monday night will see the President and his wife attend a state banquet at Buckingham Palace before a day of political and economic talks on Tuesday that will see Trump meet top UK business leaders. US President Donald Trump and his wife Melania have touched down at Stansted Airport in London ahead of their controversial state visit, which will see them dine at Buckingham Palace and the President meet outgoing Prime Minister Theresa May for talks.Read more: Trump tells UK: Include Farage in Brexit talks and prepare for no deal President Donald Trump Harry Robertson Monday 3 June 2019 9:05 am Trump has waded into the Conservative leadership race, which is gearing up as May prepares to leave Downing Street, to say that bookies’ favourite Boris Johnson is a “very good guy” and would make an “excellent” prime minister.Read more: Donald Trump endorses ‘excellent’ Boris Johnson to become Prime MinisterOn Wednesday Trump will attend 75th anniversary commemorations of the D-Day landings in Portsmouth alongside war veterans and the Queen, Prince Charles, and the Duchess of Cornwall.

Atkins restates confidence for future despite drop in revenue

first_img Share ENGINEERING firm Atkins yes­ter­day reported a 9.2 per cent drop in revenue for the six months to Sept­ember 2014, down to £831m from £915m in the same period of 2013.Profit before tax also took a hit, dropping 28.8 per cent from £54.8m to £39m. However, Uwe Krueger, chief executive at Atkins, pointed to the underlying results, which showed a two per cent increase in revenue excluding the effects of currency, acquisitions and disposals. Krueger highlighted the company’s disposal of construction business Peter Brown last year as having an effect on this year’s numbers. “With like-for-like comparisons, the numbers are very good,” he said.The firm upped its dividend by 4.8 per cent, a move Krueger said “signals the confidence that we have in our future”.He added: “We would say we are in line with market expectations, and those are pretty good.” Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Atkins restates confidence for future despite drop in revenue Tags: Atkins (WS) Company whatsapp Caitlin Morrison Thursday 13 November 2014 8:43 pm More From Our Partners Supermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.org last_img read more

News / Adidas eyes supply chain switch to south-east Asia as wages rocket in China

One of the world’s largest sports apparel and footwear manufacturers is considering a large-scale relocation of its manufacturing from China to south-east Asia and the Indian subcontinent.German giant Adidas said this week that, due to expected double-digit increases in labour costs involved in sourcing its products through to 2020, it would need to move away from China as wages soared in the country.Vietnam is likely to be the major winner, according to senior vice president of sourcing John McNamara.“What we have seen since 2009 is a compound annual growth rate in manufacturing labour costs of 13-15%, and that is what we are planning for through to 2020,” he said.This year the company will have spent $8bn on sourcing 300m pairs of trainers, 350m apparel items and another 100m items such as backpacks – and Mr McNamara said that around 60% of the cost of this was attributed to materials costs, with the remaining 40% attributed to labour, overheads, duty and freight.He said that labour costs were expected to increase by 11-15% through to 2020. Over the same period, material costs – which he said were subject to unpredictable volatility due to factors such as the weather – were expected to increase by 1-4%.In total, Adidas expects its sourcing costs to go up by $1.1-$1.8bn by 2020, which has forced it to look at other manufacturing locations.“At the moment we are sourcing 30% of our clothing and footwear in China, but that’s changing very rapidly, and by 2020 it will be half that in terms of relative percentages.Currently China, Vietnam and Indonesia produce two-thirds of Adidas footwear and clothing goods, but Mr McNamara said that would likely to drop to 60% over the next five years “as we start to explore some of the other markets”.Chief amongst these would be Pakistan – which enjoys duty-free status for goods imported into Europe – and Myanmar, and he claimed that Adidas was the first major apparel manufacturer to invest there since its recent political liberalisation, and by 2020 could be producing as much as 20m pairs of shoes per year.“Myanmar is one of the last great sourcing destinations. In Vietnam, we have grown from producing nothing to 150m pairs a year within 15 years and there will be a similar growth in Myanmar,” he added.Equally, there could also be some relocation of production to Turkey and Central America to serve Western Europe and the US respectively.“We are still looking at near-sourcing – I think it will increase but I don’t have that certainty over future costs that I have with Asia.“For example, Turkey only does cotton and apparel and you can only really afford to do simple clothing like T-shirts which take a few minutes to produce – for more complicated products that take more manufacturing minutes, and therefore incur higher labour costs, you go back to Asia,” he said.In terms of footwear production, Vietnam currently produces 40% of its volumes, which is expected to rise to 41% in five years, while Indonesia will go from 23% currently to 27%. China will decline from 23% to 17%, although given the sales growth Adidas wants to achieve, actual volumes will remain the same, he said, and its suppliers plants in the country would concentrate on more high-end products due to their higher efficiency.In terms of clothing, Chinese volumes will fall, and dramatically,“It’s the end of cheap China and we are going to see significant reduction in the amount we source from China. Vietnam will grow and Cambodia will become a big extra market for us – five years ago we asked some of our suppliers to go to Cambodia and that is starting to come through for us.“I know that lots of other clothing companies are going to Bangladesh and Vietnam, but we are really interested in Pakistan,” he said.

These antibodies could protect against Ebola’s harms, but results come with a caveat

first_img About the Author Reprints Scientists have developed new antibodies that could potentially neutralize two of the deadliest types of Ebola virus, but that news comes with a catch — the immunotherapies have only been proven in a mouse model.The research, published Wednesday in Scientific Reports, is a first step toward developing a treatment for Ebola and Marburg viruses. Scientists at the Army’s Medical Research Institute for Infectious Diseases and Albert Einstein College of Medicine developed antibodies that protected mice against Sudan and Zaire Ebola viruses even after they were exposed. The Sudan and Zaire species of Ebola virus are particularly threatening, accounting for 95 percent of Ebola-related deaths between 1976 and 2012.“While this result is encouraging, the therapy must first be tested in larger animal models (including non-human primates) before we have any idea if they could be used for human therapy,” biochemist and study author Jonathan Lai of Albert Einstein College of Medicine said.advertisement Ebola virus isolated from patient blood samples obtained in Mali.

But that research will take a hefty amount of time and resources, meaning the research results could be far down the road.advertisementlast_img read more

Manure brokers emerge, alleviate mobilization for a price

first_imgNews Manure brokers emerge, alleviate mobilization for a price By Daily NK – 2017.01.18 1:15pm RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR News Entire border patrol unit in North Hamgyong Province placed into quarantine following “paratyphoid” outbreak North Korea tries to accelerate building of walls and fences along border with China Facebook Twitter AvatarDaily NKQuestions or comments about this article? Contact us at [email protected] center_img There are signs that North Korea is running into serious difficulties with its corn harvest News 2017 has arrived and people all over the world are busy making plans and setting goals for the new year. Today I’m joined by special reporter Kang Mi Jin, who has come to talk about the latest economic trends in North Korea. But first, I’m curious to know what sorts of New Year’s plans the people of North Korea would be making at this time. This year, North Korean residents are really emphasizing economic success in their New Year’s plans. Our listeners in North Korea will know what I mean by that. Money comes into focus around this time because residents are concerned with how they will make ends meet during the year. The North Korean authorities also generally make annual demands from the residents at the beginning of the year. From the first week of the year, all residents are required to complete manure collection, which entails contributing a certain quantity of manure to the regime. In a sign that marketization is spreading across all corners of the country, we are now seeing the emergence of manure brokers in the jangmadang (markets, official or otherwise). In the midst of stories about illegal goods for sale in the market and privatized real estate, we now see manure brokers as emerging players that are truly breaking new ground. Can you explain their role to us a little more?All North Korean households are required to contribute a manure quota to the regime on a yearly basis. Because many people have a hard enough time just getting by, an inside source from Ryanggang Province tells us that the quota is a source of significant concern for residents. In response, opportunistic vendors have begun to develop new methods to capitalize on the demand.   In the past, families and groups of families generally used a collection system in their household bathrooms to donate human waste as manure. However, it was difficult to secure enough waste to fulfill the requirement this way, so many residents turned to livestock as a solution. However, a scarcity of manure remained for many people, so they were forced to search high and low to complete the yearly order.Brokers with an entrepreneurial spirit sought out confirmation certificates from farm cadres to sell. A certificate of this type frees the resident from having to contribute manure or participate in the labor mobilization order. The service might sound a bit unusual to us, and it’s even a surprise to many North Koreans when they first hear about it. The residents must be glad to see this service hit the marketplace. The majority of residents are quite glad to see the emergence of manure brokers. By paying the brokers to get confirmation from a farm cadre, they can focus on their daily market activities. This gives them more time to earn money. The manure mobilization occurs from the beginning of January to the middle of April. In most regions, it requires approximately two or three days of work per week. So that’s a total of 30-40 days of labor spent helping the regime to produce manure. But by securing a confirmation from the brokers, residents free themselves of this responsibility. I’m curious how the farms feel about this development. Farms, of course, require manure to fulfill their own production quotas. By accepting bribes in exchange for these confirmation certificates, aren’t they shooting themselves in the foot? From the perspective of the farms, that might indeed be the case, but in the “Bribery Republic of North Korea,” there is nothing that a little money can’t solve. The managing cadres who accept the bribes give a proportion of the money to the farmers. So the farmers are essentially forced to work a bit more to compensate, but they do receive money for their time and labor.The cadres typically give cigarettes, alcohol, or fruit to the farmers, and keep the lion’s share of the bribe for themselves and buy things like TVs or padded coats. How much does a manure confirmation certificate cost? There are two types of certificates available. One is for peat manure, which is a mixture of manure and different kinds of partly decomposed vegetable materials. The other is for humus soil, which consists of manure and humus, a dark brown mixture of decaying plant or animal matter. In Ryanggang Province’s Pochon Market and Hyesan Market, peat manure certificates sell for KPW 100,000 per ton, and humus manure sells for KPW 50,000-60,000 per ton. But this doesn’t include the commission fee charged by the broker which is usually an extra KPW 15,000- 20,000. The more savvy and well-connected brokers can earn up to KPW 100,000 in a single day. What’s more, there are even some companies that buy certificates in bulk. In these cases, the companies will sometimes provide televisions or bicycles as bribes instead of cash. The value of goods given depends on the number and type of certificates being provided. The fact that brokers are able to earn so much suggests that there must be a lot of demand. Is that the case? Merchants take a close look at the cost of a certificate and compare the price with how much they would earn in the marketplace while avoiding the mobilization order for 30 to 40 days. I think the increased demand for the certificates is being driven by the fact that more and more people are concluding that the cost is justified. In addition, some companies are making the same conclusion and are willing to pay large bribes to get certificates for their workers.Yet again, we see the marketplace providing a sensible answer to the North Korean regime’s demands. We’ll close with a rundown of the jangmadang prices, updated as of January 5. The price of 1 kg of rice was 4,500 KPW in Pyongyang, 4,160 KPW in Sinuiju and 4,560 KPW in Hyesan. The cost of 1 kg of corn kernels was 1,100 KPW in Pyongyang, 1,120 KPW in Sinuiju, and 1,180 KPW in Hyesan. Rice rose 250 KPW in Pyongyang, 80 KPW in Sinuiju, and 320 KPW in Hyesan.The USD was trading at 8,040 KPW in Pyongyang, 8,000 KPW in Sinuiju, and 8,190 KPW in Hyesan. The Yuan was trading at 1,200 KPW in Pyongyang and Hyesan, and 1,110 KPW in Sinuiju. One kg of pork was selling at 12,700 KPW in Pyongyang, 12,000 KPW in Sinuiju, and 13,000 KPW in Hyesan. Gasoline was trading at 8,050 KPW per kg in Pyongyang, 8,060 KPW in Sinuiju, and 8,200 KPW per kg in Hyesan. Finally, 1 kg of diesel fuel was selling at 5,500 KPW in Pyongyang, 5,700 KPW in Sinuiju, and 5,500 KPW in Hyesan. News SHARElast_img read more

Small business optimism changes little in November

Small business confidence barely budged in November, according to the latest survey by the Canadian Federation of Independent Business. The CFIB says its business barometer index last month stood at 63.7, virtually identical to October’s 63.6 reading. Related news Chief economist Ted Mallett says confidence is still lower than normal due to fears that economic weakness in Europe may spread. Retailers are almost a point above the average, suggesting a reasonably good holiday shopping season. The outlook among manufacturing, construction and transport businesses, however, remain on the weaker side. On a provincial basis, business owners in Saskatchewan are the most optimistic, with an index level of just above 74. The least optimism is in New Brunswick, where the index stood at 59.1. Measured on a scale between 0 and 100, an index above 50 means owners expecting their businesses’ performance to be stronger in the next year outnumber those expecting weaker performance. The November findings are based on 1,126 responses, collected from a random sample of CFIB members, to a controlled-access web survey. The Findings are deemed accurate to plus or minus 2.9% 19 times in 20.
