In move that could cut massive drug trade UN will revive Afghan

In a move that could curb the massive growth in opium production in Afghanistan, origin of much of the world’s heroin, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) today announced plans to help the war-torn country to resume sugar production. Through a project financed by Germany, FAO will rehabilitate Afghanistan’s only sugar factory, which ceased operations in the late 1970s, forcing the country to rely entirely on importing 300,000 tons every year. “The revival of the sugar industry could offer an alternative to poppy production and could help to boost incomes of family farmers by introducing a profitable cash crop,” Serge Verniau, FAO Representative in Kabul, the Afghan capital, said. In what it called “a clear and present danger,” the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) last month released a report showing that with 131,000 hectares dedicated to opium farming this year, Afghanistan had established a double record – the highest drug cultivation in the country’s history, and the largest in the world. It called on the international community to do more in the country’s battle against the illicit drug trade or risk it becoming a “narco-State.” Germany has recently signed six new projects with FAO for a total value of $3.3 million covering not only the factory rehabilitation but also projects for animal health and livestock production. The factory is located 250 kilometres northwest of Kabul, an area which is considered to be the most suitable for sugar beet production. FAO will help to identify farmers to cultivate exclusively sugar beet under contract. Some 2 000 growers will be selected and organized into groups. read more

Japanese manufacturers business confidence rises to 6year high on optimism over Abenomics

Japanese manufacturers’ business confidence rises to 6-year high on optimism over ‘Abenomics’ by Yuri Kageyama, The Associated Press Posted Dec 15, 2013 6:45 pm MDT TOKYO – Business confidence at Japan’s major manufacturers rose to a six-year high, according to a quarterly central bank survey released Monday, amid optimism over Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s economic recovery program.The Bank of Japan’s “tankan” business confidence index rose to 16 for large manufacturers from 12 in September, and the best showing since 2007. Abe has made monetary easing, public works projects and structural reforms the key planks of his three-pronged economic plan, dubbed “Abenomics.”The yen has fallen dramatically after he took office a year ago, which helps Japan’s automobile and electronics exporters by increasing overseas income when repatriated. The bank surveyed 10,509 companies, which responded between Nov. 14 to Dec. 13.But economists say Japan still faces major economic challenges, including a bulging public debt and shrinking population.Large companies said they expect to increase capital spending by 4.6 per cent in the fiscal year through March 2014. That was slightly lower than expected, said Hiromichi Nishi, assistant general manager at SMBC Nikko Securities.“So the effect is mixed and subdued,” he said.The sentiment index among non-manufacturing companies, including construction and services, jumped to 20 from 14, according to the survey.The “tankan” showed that they are expecting the dollar to trade at mid-90 yen levels, but it has been rising to about 100 yen lately, meaning earnings results could turn out better than expected, Nishi said.Still, analysts say Japan needs drastic structural reforms to keep solid growth going.

Bills showing improvement in past 2 games

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — After a poor first half of the season, the Buffalo Bills are in position to close the season on a roll.Following a 24-21 win over Jacksonville on Sunday, the Bills (4-7) have won two straight and shown noticeable improvement in recent weeks.Though a return to the playoffs may be far-fetched, four of Buffalo’s final five opponents have losing records — which puts the team in position to show its recent run is no fluke.“It’s about us growing and developing a strong foundation and the culture that we want and doing things the right way, creating a mindset,” Bills coach Sean McDermott said.“You’re seeing yesterday some of the fruits of that labour and the guys buying into that. Not that they didn’t buy in before, but we’re developing now and you’re starting to see some of the results on the field.”A strong finish to the season would go a long way in providing McDermott and general manager Brandon Beane validation with their youth movement.The biggest change in recent weeks has been the uptick in production on offence. For the first time this season, the Bills have scored 24 or more points and topped 300 yards in back-to-back games.Journeyman quarterback Matt Barkley first breathed life into the offence, throwing for 232 yards in a 41-10 win over the New York Jets. The upswing continued in rookie Josh Allen’s return to the lineup after the QB missed four games with an elbow injury.On Sunday, Allen threw for 160 yards — which included a 75-yard touchdown pass to fellow rookie Robert Foster — and ran for 99 yards, establishing a franchise record for rushing yards by a quarterback in a game.“Love the energy he brought,” Bills offensive co-ordinator Brian Daboll said of Allen. “Competitive. Gotta be smart and know when to get out of bounds but made plays with his legs, made plays with his arm. He had a good game, but we’ve got to build off that and be better next week.”Foster and Isaiah McKenzie have provided a jolt to the Bills passing game, adding some much-needed speed to open things up on offence.While promising, the Bills still have plenty to clean up offensively. Aside from the long touchdown pass, Allen completed seven throws for 85 yards against Jacksonville and had other big gains wiped out by penalties. Penalties were an issue for both teams; Buffalo finished with 13.Buffalo’s run defence was also vulnerable against the Jaguars. The Bills allowed 95 yards and two touchdowns to Leonard Fournette on 18 attempts before Fournette was ejected late in the third quarter following a scuffle.The Bills grabbed the upper hand following Fournette’s skirmish with defensive end Shaq Lawson — which they felt was more than just a momentary boost.“That was a huge moment for our defence in this season,” safety Jordan Poyer said. “Not just in this game, but in this season in giving us confidence that we can. This defence has come a long way since the beginning of the season and we are just going to continue to work and continue to put ourselves out there on the field.”Buffalo’s next opponent is the Miami Dolphins (5-6), who have lost four of their past five games.“We focus on one game at a time,” McDermott said. “That’s really where our focus is.”___More AP NFL: and Ludwiczak, The Associated Press read more

Cam Newtons Post About His 2008 Arrest Could be

Tuesday (Nov. 21) marked the nine year anniversary of Newton’s arrest, and he posted a message about it and offered encouragement for those who’ve also made huge mistakes.“I contemplated posting this and even reluctant about it, but as I think about my life and many things I’m thankful for, I want to be an open book, so people can hear my testimony and learn from the flaws and mistakes I made on this day 11/21/2008, “he wrote. “On this date I thought my life and career was over, and the fact that I had shamed my family with media coverage surrounding this situation, I vowed to myself on this day that I will be better from this situation.”In addition, Newton said no one gave him a chance to succeed after his arrest, and they doubted he could turn things around. But he refused to listen to any of that, which led him to his current position as the on-the-field leader of the Carolina Panthers and one of the NFL’s elite quarterbacks.Newton also encouraged others, who face difficult times, to keep dreaming and reaching for their goals.“If I can do it with my circumstances surely you can do it and be whatever you want to be with hard work and persistence,” he wrote. It’s possible that his post could be a direct message to young Black men, considering how unforgiving the criminal justice system is when they make a mistake that leads to an arrest.According to a 2014 study published in the journal Crime & Delinquency, nearly 50 percent of Black men are arrested by the time they turn age 23.On top of that, the Justice Department released data — published by Mother Jones — that shows Black juveniles are five times more prone than white juveniles to be sent to jail or prison.But Newton’s post could’ve also been about the recent high profile case of Meek Mill, who was sentenced to 2-4 years in prison for violating probation. Or possibly to LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill, the UCLA players who were arrested for shoplifting in China. But either way, he didn’t specify. InstagramIn 2008, when he was a student at The University of Florida, NFL star Cam Newton was arrested for stealing a fellow student’s laptop. He was eventually charged with felony counts of burglary, larceny, and obstruction of justice -because he threw the laptop out a window. Related news: Cam NewtonCam Newton Receives Backlash for Laughing at Female Reporter, Some Cry Selective OutragePanther’s PR Adviser Reportedly Responsible For Cam Newton’s Revised Stance on RaceCam Newton and Colin Kaepernick’s Face-to-Face Photo Goes Viral After Hilarious Meme Takes Off Elsewhere in his post, the Heisman Trophy winner said that he’s not ashamed of his 2008 arrest, and he celebrates turning his life around by the way he lives and plays football.“People wonder why I play the game the way I do, act the way I act, dress the way I dress and even live the way I live,” wrote Newton. “Because in some people’s eyes, I’m not supposed to be here but in my eyes, I’m not going to have any regrets with the second chance God has given me.”The 28-year-old then paraphrased one of JAY-Z’s lines from the 2011 song “N—– in Paris” to explain his celebratory way of life on and off the field. “I’m shocked too. I’m supposed to be locked up too. If you escaped what I’ve escaped, you’d be in Paris getting messed up too,” he wrote.After he posted his message, Newton’s followers praised him for his openness and called him brave. “Thank you for sharing, Cam,” one person wrote. “He made a mistake like we all have before,” wrote another.One man named David Phillips pointed to Newton’s level of resilience and his willingness to help others navigate the difficult days of youth.“Man, the ripple effects from a post like this,” he wrote. “At some point, life will throw everyone a curveball. It’s how you respond that makes the difference … Someone’s life will probably never be the same after reading it.” read more

Commentary Season outlook bright for Cleveland Cavaliers with new additions

Cleveland Cavalier’s guard Matthew Dellavedova (9) forces his way to the basket during a game against the Philadelphia 76ers Oct. 21 at the Schottenstein Center. The Cavaliers won, 104-93.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorA disappointing 2012-13 season for the Cleveland Cavaliers, who finished 24-58 on the year, prompted a flurry of additions in the offseason.These additions to the roster have the potential to make them one of the most intriguing teams in the NBA this season.The Cavs went into last season hoping a talented young core of Kyrie Irving, Dion Waiters and Tristan Thompson, along with long-time Cavalier Anderson Varejao would translate to more wins. After winning only 24 games and ending up with the first pick in the NBA draft for the second time in three years, it became clear the Cavs needed more of a supporting cast to help out the young talent they had gathered.Their first move, however, was not to bring in a new player, but a new coach.Byron Scott was fired after his third season with the team, and new (or old) coach Mike Brown was brought back to Cleveland after getting fired by the Los Angeles Lakers. Brown coached L.A. to a 41-25 record in the lockout-shortened 2011-12 season, but was let go after the team started 1-4 last year.With a coach in place, it was time for general manager Chris Grant to assemble the roster. In all, eight new players were brought on board, five of which should make a heavy impact on the team.With the first overall pick, Cleveland took former-UNLV forward Anthony Bennett. Then, with the nineteenth pick, acquired from the Lakers, they selected Sergey Karasev, a forward and three-point specialist from Russia.Grant was not afraid to spend money, either, signing three of the bigger free agents available. Jarrett Jack, a point guard who last played with the Golden State Warriors, was signed to bring stability and veteran leadership to the backcourt. Earl Clark, who played with Brown in Los Angeles for the Lakers, was signed to be play small forward.Finally, the Cavs shocked many by bringing in another former player of Brown’s, the oft-injured but supremely talented center Andrew Bynum.If Bynum can make a full recovery from a plethora of knee injuries, suddenly the Cavs look like a viable threat to be one of the four or five best teams in the Eastern Conference.What will stand in their way could continue to be inexperience. Irving is already a superstar in the league at just 21 years old, and Waiters and Thompson could emerge to join Irving as the Cavs “Big Three.” But Waiters is only 21 and Thompson is 22. There’s a good chance they will need more experience before they learn how to win games.That could be the value of someone like Jack, who was brought in not only for his performance on the court, but his abilities to act as a player-coach both on the floor and in the locker room. The Cavs open their season Wednesday at 7 p.m. against Brooklyn in Cleveland. read more

Mega goldcopper mine project makes the grade

first_imgIM, through International Mining Project News and consideration of the IPCC aspects of the project in the February issue Leader, has already covered the Caspiche news widely, but we are pleased to present the interesting Marc Davis ( take on, as he says, “the improbable feat of commercialising Latin America’s second largest undeveloped gold deposit. [It] has achieved a major milestone validation for its unlikely owner, a small Canadian explorer named Exeter Resource. Vancouver-based Exeter [recently] completed an initial blueprint for a mine, (prefeasibility study), that suggests a mine worth over C$27 billion in future revenues is technically and economically viable.“Known as the Caspiche, this monster deposit is located in northern Chile’s gold-rich Maricunga mineral belt, where over 100 Moz of gold are already concentrated among a clutch of existing mines. Now the region has gained some additional luster with the announcement that Caspiche boasts 19.3 Moz (Proven and Probable) of gold. A further 4.6 billion pounds of copper and over 41 Moz of silver also sweetens the overall value of the deposit. This makes it one of the world’s biggest gold discoveries in recent years and one of only a tiny handful of mega deposits not yet snapped-up by the world’s major mining companies.“David West, a precious metals analyst for the Vancouver-based investment bank, Salman Partners, says that this pivotal benchmark development significantly de-risks Caspiche and makes it a prospectively tantalising takeover target for the world’s top gold producers.”“It certainly raises the company’s profile as a takeover candidate, which could be one of the usual suspects in terms of larger mining companies,” he says. “Or you might even see a Chinese company take a run at it.”In spite of the prohibitive mine development costs involved – totaling C$4.8 billion — a project of this magnitude is something that major mining companies can’t really afford to pass up on indefinitely, West adds. “Sooner or later, someone will buy-out this project.”“Caspiche’s appeal is underscored by the fact that fewer and fewer worldclass gold deposits (at least 5 Moz in size) are being found,” Davis continues. The current success rate is about one per year, regardless of how many companies are hunting for them and the approximately $4 billion per year that is being spent on this increasingly challenging quest.“In spite of bullion’s spot price having increased six-fold since its lows nearly a decade ago, the world’s deep-pocketed, big-league gold miners have found themselves scrambling to replenish dwindling inventories. So they’re aggressively targeting takeover candidates that own undeveloped multi-million ounce discoveries, rather than merely relying on organic growth.“The fact that Caspiche is projected to produce approximately 700,000 oz/y of gold for at least 19 years would be meaningful to the bottom line of any multinational gold miner, West says. This is especially the case for any of the world’s top producers, all of which need to yield up to several million ounces each year just to keep pace with their rivals.“Another major value driver for Caspiche is that it sits at the heart of the Maricunga mineral belt, which has ample mining infrastructure already in-place. This considerably reinforces the odds in favor of Caspiche becoming a mine, according to Marshall Berol. He co-manages the San Francisco-based Encompass Fund, which has a heavy weighting in mining equities, and which has been a stellar performer over the past few years as a result of a resurgent market in gold stocks.”“Significant economies of scale could be realized if the major players in the area get together to share mining infrastructure,” Berol says.“The dominant gold industry “players’ that he’s referring to are Barrick Gold, Kinross Gold and Goldcorp. In particular, Barrick and Kinross own most of the Maricunga gold camp’s prized assets. They include the two nearby mines that straddle Caspiche on each side, one of which is a comparably-sized mine in-the-making called Cerro Casale.“Unlike several other large-scale gold projects elsewhere in Latin America, Caspiche’s location in Chile also offers a key geopolitical advantage to Exeter and to any of its   suitors, Berol says. Specifically, Chile is a politically stable democracy that has long been mining-friendly, especially since this capital-intensive industry is essentially the backbone of its economy.Meanwhile, Goldcorp (the world’s fifth largest gold producer and second biggest in terms of market capitalization) is aggressively expanding its mining activities in the Maricunga region. Just last week, the company announced its decision to spend C$3.9 billion on the building of mine at its El Morro gold deposit, which is one of Caspiche’s neighbours.At 8.4 Moz of gold and 6.1 billion pounds of copper in size, El Morro is considerably smaller than Caspiche, in spite of being almost as expensive to build. And its projected annual output is only 210,000 oz of gold and 200 Mlb of copper over a 17-year mine life. On a comparison basis, this demonstrates how relatively inexpensive the Caspiche mine will be to build relative to its prolific projected gold and copper output over nearly two decades.”This reality further heightens Caspiche’s appeal as a takeover candidate. In fact, its prolific size “should draw the attention of numerous interested parties” according to Wendell Zerb, a Vancouver-based mining analyst for the brokerage house Canaccord Adams.“We continue to value Exeter on metrics related to it ultimately being acquired,” he adds in a recent 13-page investment letter to investors. “Along with the premium that Exeter’s share price should enjoy in the event of an attractive takeover offer,2 Davis says, “additional value should be built-into the stock’s pricing by the completion of a full feasibility study, which is expected to be published before the year’s end, Zerb says. Hence, he foresees considerable potential upside for the company’s share price over the next 12 months.last_img read more

Samsung countersues Apple for 10 patent infringements

first_imgSamsung promised to fight Apple in court after Apple sued last week, and now they’ve revealed how. The company has countersued Apple for infringing over 10 of its mobile technology patents, and has cases pending in South Korea (where Samsung is based,) Japan, and Germany. The lawsuit Apple has filed is based in the United States.The bulk of the patents that Samsung claims Apple has infringed upon include 3G quality of service technology, data communication technology, and systems for power reduction and management when sending wireless data. Samsung claimed in the lawsuits that Apple should stop infringing on the technology Samsung developed, and should compensate the company for damages.AdChoices广告It’s clear that Samsung’s new countersuit is designed to be a punitive move against Apple for its earlier lawsuit that alleged that the Samsung’s Galaxy S line of phones and Galaxy Tab tablet are too similar to the iPhone and iPad. As with many lawsuits like this, the courts will have to weigh in on the tit-for-tat legal battle. Still, it’s not as though Samsung doesn’t have a leg to stand on and this is just retaliatory. Apple is facing legal challenges from Nokia and HTC over similar patent infringement accusations.One question that’s come up through all of this is how the two companies will settle their dispute amicably, if that’s still possible. After all, Apple does rely on Samsung to provide LCDs for its displays and mobile devices, and it’s a key component manufacturer of chips for a number of Apple products. On the flip side, Apple is a big – and paying – Samsung customer. Neither company likely wants to jeopardize that relationship.It’s likely that the two companies will come up with a method to settle their disputes quietly and out of court, but until then the rest of us will have to wait and see what the courts say.Read more at Reuterslast_img read more

Creditors holding off loan approval

first_imgHaving passed a multi-bill of measures through Parliament, the government has now turned its attention back to foreign creditors who must approve the release of 2 billion euros in rescue loans and launch a critical review of Greece’s finances and reform progress.Representatives of Greece’s lenders – the European Commission, the European Central Bank, the European Stability Mechanism and the International Monetary Fund – are expected to return to Athens on Tuesday to start a review that, Greece hopes, will end successfully, paving the way for the launch of talks on debt relief.The auditors are to scour Greece’s finances too, following the presentation of the draft budget. Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos is expected to request flexibility, arguing that the recession estimates in the draft budget – 2.3 percent of gross domestic product this year and 1.3 percent next year – are overly pessimistic.His aim is to eliminate some of the more contentious austerity measures that Greece has suspended, such as plans for a 23 percent value added tax on private schools and higher taxes on rental income.As regards pension reform, another controversial issue, the government is keen to convince creditors to allow the inclusion of certain prior actions in a broader overhaul of the pension system, to come later.As regards the 2-billion-euro loan tranche, the Euro Working Group is to convene on Wednesday and may recommend the immediate release of the money or may ask Greece to legislate more actions from the first list of prior actions.The multi-bill approved by 154 coalition MPs early on Saturday included about a third of those measures, though Tsakalotos said they were adequate to secure the funding.Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is also bracing for a busy week, culminating with a visit to Athens by French President Francois Hollande on Thursday and Friday. Hollande, who is to address Parliament on Friday, will be traveling with seven top government officials and several French entrepreneurs.A key aim is to test the potential for French involvement in Greece’s privatization program with Trainose and EYDAP among the assets drawing French interest.Source: Kathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

On July 29, making his acting debut as homeless drug abuser Laces, the only Pulitzer-prize winning rapper was the one who brought unexpected freshness to the show.In the episode, Lamar, almost unrecognizable in his role as Laces, distracts another character so hitman Kanan, played by 50 Cent, can shoot him. Laces helps himself to the victim’s wallet and shoes and is stoked about it. It’s certainly not the vision of Lamar we’re used to.”It’s a total transformation,” said executive producer of “Power” Courtney Kemp. “It is not a version of Kendrick Lamar that you’ve ever seen before.” In the interview with Kemp above, Lamar spoke of his preparation for the role and his satisfaction at playing someone he could relate to from real-life experiences growing up in Compton, Calif. Lamar’s acting appearance shows that he is not only a master of musical and verbal expression, but shows promise of adding “triple threat” to his esteemed resume. After all, “discipline,” the rapper shared, is his favorite word.No word yet whether Laces will be back on screen.

Small Business Legislation Highlighted at Prince Georges County Forum

first_imgBy James Wright, Special to the AFRO, jwright@afro.comMaryland State Sens. Mike Miller (D-District 27), James Rosapepe (D-District 21) and Douglas Peters (D-District 23) in addition to Maryland Del. Jay Walker (D-District 26) talked about the recently concluded Maryland General Assembly session April 25 at a forum sponsored by the Prince George’s County Chamber of Commerce at The Hotel at the University of Maryland in College Park, Maryland.David Harrington is the president and CEO of the chamber of commerce and Jason DeLoach of the Alexander & Cleaver law firm is the chairman of the board.Del. Jay Walker, who represents District 26 in the Maryland General Assembly, recently talked about how small businesses fared in the recently concluded legislative session. (Courtesy Photo)“We as a chamber need to know what is going on in Annapolis,” DeLoach said. “Large businesses understand that what’s going on with the legislature but small businesses don’t.”Miller talked about some of the victories for the county that took place during the session. “We saved health care for Marylanders from Donald Trump,” he said, meaning that the assembly passed legislation that retained portions of Obamacare the president sought to gut. “We did that placing a tax on the insurance companies in our state for that.”“We also funded WMATA [the Washington, D.C. metro subway system], an incentive package worth billions for Amazon to come to Maryland, and a school safety bill that ensures a public safety officer at every public high school in Maryland.”Miller said he was especially proud that the assembly passed free community college for poor and working-class residents and extra money for historically Black colleges and universities.Walker is the outgoing leader of the Prince George’s delegation to the House of Delegates. Walker started his remarks by criticizing Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan’s (R) priority when it comes to jobs.“Gov. Hogan has worked to see that jobs that are coming to the state go to Western Maryland and the Eastern Maryland but we need to bring those jobs to the DMV [District, Maryland & Virginia],” Walker, first elected to the assembly in 2006, said.Walker said the county delegation worked to secure funding for the new public hospital to be located in Largo, Md., next to the Largo Town Center Metro Center. “The hospital was slated to have 200 beds but now it will have 300 because of the efforts of my colleagues and me,” he said.Rosapepe said his colleagues worked to put more money in school construction and to address overcrowding in schools, particularly in the northern section of the county. During his remarks, Peters gave the audience a quick tutorial on how the process works in Annapolis.“This session, we had 3,100 bills to consider,” he said. “Obviously, we couldn’t get to all of them. If you have a bill that has a fiscal note of $250,000, it’s not going to be considered because of the high cost.”There was a discussion about minority-owned businesses and getting their share of state contracting work. Walker noted a bill of Del. Jazz Lewis (D-District 24) that would streamline the state’s certification process with the federal governments’ so businesses in the state won’t have to go through duplicate processes.last_img read more
