Posted on by

first_imgVBR Releases Third Quarter, 2004 CEO Economic Outlook Survey ResultsSo. Burlington, VT- Results from the Vermont Business Roundtable’s (VBR)third quarter, 2004 CEO Economic Outlook Survey, show that, compared tothe previous quarter results, more of our member CEOs are planningincreases over the next six months in two important measures: capitalspending and employment. While projections for company sales areoptimistic, compared to the previous quarter results, a higher percentageof business leaders feel that sales are more likely to remain stable forthe next six months.Douglas J. Wacek, President & CEO of the Union Mutual of Vermont Companiesin Montpelier and Ernie Pomerleau, President & CEO of Pomerleau RealEstate in Burlington are members of the VBR. When asked to comment on hisCEO Economic Outlook Survey responses, Wacek stated that “continued growthand technological changes in internal business practices would stimulatethe need for additional staff at his company over the next severalmonths.” Pomerleau said that he expects an increase in company sales andcapital expenditures over the next six months. He said he has “seen amuch higher level of activity in development and brokerage opportunitiesfrom inquires both inside and outside the state this year.” PomerleauReal Estate is planning several remodels and expansions of existingprojects this year and they are actively reviewing several new onesprojected for 2005.The survey, modeled after the national Business Roundtable’s CEO EconomicOutlook survey, was conducted in early July and enjoyed a response rate of60% up from 40% last quarter. The key findings, which reflect themembership’s outlook for the next six months, include the followinghighlights:* 71% of responding CEOs expect an increase in consumer sales, 25% see nochange, and 4% anticipate a decrease. [Second quarter results: Increase80%, No Change 15%, Decrease 4%]* 51% expect capital spending to increase in the next six months, 42% seeno change, and 7% anticipate a decrease. [Second quarter results: Increase43%, No Change 41%, Decrease 15%]* 59% expect employment to increase in the next six months, 37% see nochange, and 4% anticipate a decrease. [Second quarter results: Increase50%, No Change 48%, Decrease 2%]* On average, CEOs expect GDP growth to be in the 4.1% range in 2004.[Second quarter results: 4.6%]”The diminished sales projections over the next six months reflect acontinuing concern by CEOs over the ongoing slump in consumer spending.Higher fuel prices are partly attributable to that measure. On the otherhand, there is an upturn in the projected capital outlays and new hiresexpected in the next six months, both of which are positive news for theVermont economy,” said VBR President Lisa Ventriss.Created in 1987 as a nonprofit, public interest organization, the VermontBusiness Roundtable is comprised of 120 CEOs of Vermont’s most active andcommitted businesses and employers dedicated to making Vermont the bestplace in America to do business, be educated, and live life.

Brazilian Armed Forces’ High Performance Athlete Program Full Goes Speed Ahead

Posted on by

first_imgBy Marcos Ommati/Diálogo October 26, 2017 The High Performance Athlete Program (PAAR, per its Portuguese acronym) of the Ministry of Defense of Brazil counts nearly 700 athletes from the Brazilian Navy, Army, and Air Force. In February 2017, the Brazilian Army (EB, per its Portuguese acronym) opened up new spots for athletes wishing to enter the program and join the Brazilian Armed Forces.Diálogo spoke with EB Major Mauro David Cardoso Martins, head of the Brazilian Armed Forces swim team. Maj. David also heads the EB’s High Performance Athlete Subunit and coordinates PAAR at the Army Physical Education School. The school is part of an outstanding military sports complex for Brazilian athletes, the Army Physical Training Center, located on the very spot where the city of Rio de Janeiro was founded, in the Urca neighborhood.Diálogo: What lessons did the EB learn about the High Performance Athlete Program after the 2016 Olympics?Brazilian Army Major Mauro David Cardoso Martins, head of the Brazilian Armed Forces swim team: The objectives of the High Performance Athlete Program are to represent the Brazilian Armed Forces in national and international competitions, contribute to the development of sports domestically, and reinforce the image of our land forces at home and abroad. Within that framework, we believe that all of those objectives were met at the 2016 Olympics, with the participation of 145 EB service members who won 13 of Brazil’s 19 medals at the Rio Games.Diálogo: At what stage is the program? Were there changes compared to 2016?Maj. David: Strictly speaking about the Army, the program currently counts 176 athletes in 18 modalities — there are spots for 245 — the same number of service members that the Army had before the 2016 Olympic Games. Our objectives remain the same, and we aim to participate in the 2019 Military World Games and in the 2020 Olympic Games.Diálogo: Why is it important to EB to keep this program going? And why is it important to the athletes?Maj. David: EB has always supported national sports. Physical activity is part of the military’s daily routine, which requires good physical and mental condition to be ready for combat. The Army’s High Performance Athlete Program was created in 2009 under this new format, but we’ve always had fine athletes, such as First Lieutenant Guilherme Paraense, the first Brazilian to win a gold medal at the Olympics. That was in 1920, at the Antwerp Games [Belgium]. Let’s not forget that Edson Arantes do Nascimento, or Pelé, was an Army sergeant, as was João Carlos de Oliveira (João do Pulo), a two-time Olympic medalist, among others. For these reasons, we believe in the importance of the program and its continuity. For the athletes, the program is important because it’s an additional means of training to compete at a high level. As military athletes, they enjoy the same benefits as any other service member: compensation, medical and dental treatment, physical therapy, the use of the sports facilities, having their image associated with an institution of credibility and trust, adding their time in the Army to their retirement, and many others.Diálogo: How does EB come into contact with potential athletes to participate in the program?Maj. David: Athlete selection is done through a public announcement with four phases: review of the applicant’s sports curriculum, human resources interview, health exam, and physical tests. The Brazilian Army Sports Commission meticulously studies the national and international sports scene and is in direct contact with sports clubs, federations and confederations in an effort to select the best athletes in each modality.Diálogo: Brazil has been grappling with an unrelenting financial crisis for some years now. Has that affected the program? Who pays the costs?Maj. David: PAAR has not suffered any personnel cuts and maintains the same number of athletes it had before the 2016 Olympic Games. The funds to pay EB’s PAAR members come from the Brazilian Army High Command. There is also a partnership between the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Sports to organize the participation in certain international competitions.Diálogo: Brazil came in first place when it hosted the 2011 Military World Games and second place in 2015, in South Korea. What is the outlook for the 2019 Games?Maj. David: We hope to finish among the top three in 2019.Diálogo: Did any country get in touch with EB for help implementing a similar project?Maj. David: We still haven’t received any requests for that kind of assistance, but we do know that there are many countries with projects similar to ours, such as France, Germany, Italy, Hungary, and the Czech Republic, among others.last_img read more

‘A place of fond memories’: Flagship McDonald’s store in Jakarta’s Sarinah bids farewell

Posted on by

first_imgIndonesia’s first McDonald’s restaurant in the Sarinah shopping center in Central Jakarta, which for years has been an icon for urbanites in the capital, will permanently shut its doors this Sunday after nearly three decades in business.McDonald’s Indonesia bade farewell to the flagship store after receiving an official letter from the management of Sarinah on April 30, stating that the government-owned building would undergo a renovation and make changes to its business strategy in the near future.Many Jakartans turned to social media after the announcement to share their memories of the fast food restaurant, which has been a go-to spot for workers, students and families. Some Jakartans also remembered how the restaurant was a silent witness of chaotic incidents on one of the busiest streets in the capital, including a bombing in 2016 and the deadly post-election riots following the 2019 presidential race.McDonald’s Indonesia marketing and communications director Michael Hartono said he was aware of how McDonald’s Sarinah had become an important place for some and that many customers had had their first experiences in the restaurant.“We express our deepest gratitude to all our loyal consumers who have jointly raised McDonald’s Sarinah and created millions of sweet memories with us there,” Michael said in a press statement released on Thursday.“It will certainly have a very deep mark on us because of the history, memories and celebrations of important events taking place at McDonald’s Sarinah. We will continue to try to provide the best for our customers and look for other strategic locations.”The company said it would ensure that all employees who had been working at McDonald’s Sarinah would keep their jobs and be relocated to other restaurants.There are 227 McDonald’s restaurants across Indonesia.McDonald’s Sarinah first opened on Feb. 23, 1991, with the management license partly owned by businessman Bambang Rachmadi, who also managed 12 other restaurants in the country, together with McDonald’s Corporation.In 2009, McDonald’s Corporation sold its master franchise to the Sosro Group, a subsidiary of the Rekso Group, which resulted in Bambang changing the name of the McDonald’s in Sarinah and elsewhere to ToniJack’s.A year later, ToniJack’s had to close a number of its outlets, including those in strategic places like Sarinah, amid sluggish business. Rekso Group retook the Sarinah building in February 2011 and brought back McDonald’s.PT Sarinah president director Gusti Ngurah Putu Sugiarta Yasa said that the renovation of the Sarinah building this year would support the company’s new business concepts.He said the renovation would start with the annex and department store areas in the beginning of June and that the company would prioritize accommodating tenants currently in Sarinah. “McD Sarinah” became a trending topic on Twitter on Thursday evening, with more than 20,000 tweets related to the restaurant’s closure.“One of my family’s traditions in the month of Ramadan that cannot be fulfilled this year is sahur [predawn meal] at McD Sarinah,” Twitter user @tweetiani posted on May 3.Another user, @AmmarshaR, posted a picture showing the back of Ronald McDonald – the clown mascot of the restaurant chain – waving goodbye to the McDonald’s store, located in the corner of the historical shopping center on Jl. MH Thamrin.“[The store is] a cultural heritage, many may say. One of the oldest fast food establishments in the country,” the user tweeted on Friday, “I’ve had my fair share of time spent there, from waiting for a date to a quick dinner after a midnight trip. It’s a place of fond memories.”McD Sarinah is an institution. A cultural heritage, many may said. One of the oldest fast food establishment in the country.I’ve had my fair share of time spent there.

US envoy caps Taiwan trip with tribute to late democracy leader

Posted on by

first_imgBeijing, which claims Taiwan as its own territory, loathed Lee. When news emerged of his death, Chinese state media called him “the godfather of Taiwan secessionism”.Despite being self-ruled since 1949, Taiwan has never formally declared independence from the mainland and Beijing has vowed to react with force if it ever does.Both Washington and Taipei portrayed Azar’s trip as an opportunity to learn from the success of Taiwan’s battle against the coronavirus.The island has fewer than 500 infections and just seven deaths, compared with more than 160,000 fatalities in the United States.But the visit has also been an opportunity to ruffle Beijing’s feathers at a time when US President Donald Trump is taking an increasingly hard line against China as he seeks re-election in November.”We will continue to support Taiwan as our friend and our partner across security, economic and healthcare issues,” Azar told reporters after a visit to a mask factory on Wednesday.China takes umbrage at any formal recognition of Taiwan.It called for Azar’s trip to be cancelled and Taiwan accused Beijing of sending fighter jets over a de facto border on Monday, the day the US health chief met President Tsai Ing-wen.During his visit Azar has repeatedly contrasted Taiwan’s open, democratic system with China’s authoritarian leadership.In a speech on Tuesday he suggested the coronavirus might have been stopped sooner had it emerged in a more transparent and democratic place, such as Taiwan, rather than China.He also hit out at Beijing for keeping Taiwan locked out of the World Health Organization. China has taken an increasingly hostile approach towards Taiwan since Tsai took office in 2016. Despite the pressure campaign she won a second term earlier this year with a landslide.Topics : On the last day of his visit, Azar visited a shrine and wrote a message of condolence for Lee, who died last month aged 97.”President Lee’s democratic legacy will forever propel the U.S.-Taiwan relationship forward,” Azar wrote. Lee was a towering figure in Taiwan’s recent history.He defied China by pushing for the island to be recognized as a sovereign nation and earned the nickname “Mr. Democracy” for the part he played in its transition from authoritarian rule. A US cabinet member visited a shrine to Taiwan’s late president Lee Teng-hui Wednesday, praising his role in steering the island’s transition to democracy, as he capped a historic trip to the island that has riled China.Health chief Alex Azar is on a three-day visit to Taiwan that Washington has billed as its highest-level delegation since the US switched diplomatic recognition to China in 1979.His visit comes as US-China relations plunge to historic lows with the two powers clashing over a wide range of issues from trade to military and security issues, human rights and the coronavirus pandemic.last_img read more

DNB: Lump sum option puts underfunded schemes at risk

Posted on by

first_imgThe association of pension specialists (KPS) said it wondered why taking out a lump sum would be possible at underfunded schemes, whereas individual value transfer of pension rights was not allowed in such a situation.Trade union VCP, in contrast, argued that participants using the lump sum option at well funded schemes would miss out on indexation over the amount taken out.Earlier, tax experts argued that the new lump sum option at retirement would unlikely be beneficial because of a higher taxation.The Dutch order of tax advisers (NOB) suggested that the lump sum could turn out to be disadvantageous, as people could end up in a higher tax band, or lose housing benefits and care subsidies. Dutch pensions supervisor De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) has argued that the proposed legislation of a 10% lump sum withdrawal at retirement would come at the expense of participants of underfunded schemes.As surpluses and shortfalls at pension funds don’t have to be taken into account when requesting such withdrawals, this could lead to “undesired selective behaviour”, the regulator stated in a response to the consultation on the country’s recent pensions bill.DNB noted that retiring participants would get an additional stimulus to avoid a looming rights cut, “as they would actually receive more than their pension fund has available”.It also argued that taking out a lump sum at underfunded schemes would further put a pension fund’s financial position at risk.last_img read more

Rohit, Bumrah help India reach semis and eliminate Bangladesh

Posted on by

first_imgBy Amlan ChakrabortyBIRMINGHAM, England (Reuters) – India sailed into the Cricket World Cup semi-finals and eliminated opponents Bangladesh in the process after Rohit Sharma’s century and Jasprit Bumrah’s four-wicket haul secured a 28-run victory over their neighbours yesterday.Rohit smashed his fourth century of this year’s tournament and featured in a massive 180-run opening partnership with KL Rahul to help India to a commanding 314-9.Shakib Al Hasan struck a defiant 66 but the lack of partnerships hurt Bangladesh, who were all out for 286 in 48 overs with Bumrah (4-55) sealing the victory by claiming two wickets with the final two deliveries.India are now second with 13 points, one behind leaders Australia, while Bangladesh are seventh with seven points.“Bangladesh played some really good cricket and deserve credit for the fight they put up,” said India captain Virat Kohli. “We had to work hard for the win and we’re happy to see a Q (qualified) in front of our name now.”Earlier, Rohit combined with Rahul (77) for the highest opening partnership at this year’s tournament to give India a strong foundation after they elected to bat.Things could have been vastly different though had Tamim Iqbal not spilled Rohit, then on nine, at midwicket off Mustafizur Rahman who went on to return 5-59.Rohit capitalised on the reprieve to smash a 92-ball 104, equalling Sri Lankan Kumar Sangakkara’s record of four hundreds in a single World Cup, which earned him the man-of-the-match.The opener clobbered five of the seven sixes in the Indian innings, besides seven fours, and overtook Australian David Warner as the leading scorer at this tournament.Soumya Sarkar ended the ominous-looking partnership in the 30th over when Rohit mistimed his drive.Rahul joined him in the pavilion after bringing up his second half-century of this tournament.MIDDLE ORDER STRUGGLES Kohli made 26, his first sub-50 score in his last six innings, and India’s middle order again struggled to get going.Rishabh Pant, who made 48 off 41 balls, scored freely but India could not really capitalise on the fine start.Mahendra Singh Dhoni made 35 but once again failed to launch a late assault which could have taken India past the 350-mark which had looked well within their reach at one stage.India played two wicketkeepers – Pant and Dinesh Karthik – as specialist batsmen to beef up their misfiring middle order but the woes persisted.A strong start was imperative to chase down a 300-plus target and Bangladesh were understandably cautious as they embarked on trying to repeat their upset victory against India at the 2007 World Cup.Bhuvneshwar Kumar, returning from a hamstring injury, and Bumrah kept it tight up front but Mohammed Shami drew the first blood for India by dismissing Tamim for 22.Fellow opener Soumya Sarkar could not convert the start he got into a big innings either, hitting Hardik Pandya straight to Kohli at short extra cover to depart for 33.Shakib brought up his sixth 50-plus score at the tournament but wickets kept tumbling at the other end.Mohammad Saifuddin (51 not out) and Sabbir Rahman (36) forged the only 50-plus partnership in the Bangladesh innings but they never really threatened to pull off a difficult chase.“It was a good effort – Mustafizur bowled well – but if one of the batsmen could have got to 80 or 90 it might have been different,” Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza said.“We were asking too much in the end. A bit of luck didn’t go our way either.”last_img read more

Trojans, Orgeron begin anew

Posted on by

first_imgWhen the Trojans run out of the tunnel to take on the Arizona Wildcats tonight, it’ll be a much different team than the group that took the field for USC’s most recent game 12 days ago.Embrace · Redshirt sophomore defensive end Leonard Williams (94) and redshirt senior linebacker Devon Kennard (42) celebrate a defensive stop. – Ralf Cheung | Daily Trojan Gone is former head coach Lane Kiffin. Junior wide receiver Marqise Lee (knee) and senior linebacker Morgan Breslin (hip), arguably USC’s best offensive and defensive players, respectively, aren’t expected to take the field, either.Interim head coach Ed Orgeron will lead the Trojans from their locker room down the tunnel in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, past the images of dozens of renowned players and coaches who have established the prestigious tradition associated with USC football.“It’s really an honor to go down the tunnel,” Orgeron said. “[To see] the tradition, to look up on the wall with all those great players there, hear the cleats go ‘click clack’ … I really enjoy it.”Those Trojans overcame adversity to have their likenesses enshrined in that tunnel. The question every USC fan wants to know now is: Will Orgeron and his players, who have certainly seen their fair share of hardship this season, follow in those legends’ footsteps by overcoming the Wildcats to restore faith in this year’s squad?Orgeron, who will complete the first part of his eight-game audition for the USC coaching job against Arizona, is confident they will.“I’m prepared for this,” Orgeron said. “Obviously we have to go and perform well, but I really feel that they’re gonna perform well and give it their best shot.”Tonight marks the first non-Thanksgiving Thursday night game in the regular season ever hosted by USC, a quaint storyline that has since taken a backseat to the more pressing issue – can the Trojans inspire belief through their play in Athletic Director Pat Haden that Orgeron can act as a permanent replacement for Kiffin? Or will they come out with another lackluster performance, convincing Haden that USC needs to wipe its hands clean of all aspects of the Kiffin regime?The players themselves remain confident in Orgeron, who was the Trojans’ emotional leader as defensive line coach and recruiting coordinator even while Kiffin still reigned o’er Troy.“We really like Coach O, and even the offensive guys like Coach O as the head coach,” sophomore defensive end Leonard Williams said. “It kind of pushes us to play as hard as we can for him to make sure he stays around… We all want Coach O to stay here.”If the Trojans do want to keep Orgeron at USC, they’ll have to stop Arizona running back Ka’Deem Carey, the unquestioned focal point of the Wildcats’ offense.Carey led the nation in rushing yards per game (148.4) last season and is ranked fifth (143.7) in the same category this year.“He’s a very aggressive running back,” Williams said. “If he gets hit, he’s always gonna try to get that extra yard.”But Carey isn’t the only threat in the Wildcats’ running attack, which ranks second in the Pac-12 (291.5 yards per game) behind only Oregon. Quarterback B.J. Denker has 280 rushing yards and six touchdowns on the ground, and tailback Daniel Jenkins has 252 rushing yards, including a 91-yard touchdown dash.“Coach O’s really been emphasizing wrapping up this week and working on spin tackles, because we’ve seen on film [Carey] likes to spin out of tackles a lot,” Williams said. “And the quarterback’s a pretty good scrambler as well.”Arizona’s aerial attack, on the other hand, has been essentially nonexistent. Denker has only completed 50 percent of his attempts while averaging just 111.3 passing yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. Not surprisingly, the Wildcats rank last in the Pac-12 in passing offense.Arizona’s defense has been surprisingly solid, ranking second in the Pac-12 in scoring defense (14.2 points per game) and fourth in total defense (335.0 yards per game).But that could be a result of the Wildcats’ exceedingly soft schedule — Arizona defeated Northern Arizona, UNLV and UTSA before being throttled by Washington, 31-13, in their most recent matchup.Junior wide receiver Marqise Lee would surely like to get a second crack at the Wildcats’ defense after gashing Arizona for 345 receiving yards last year in his signature performance as a Trojan. But Orgeron has not been optimistic about Lee’s chances of suiting up tonight, stating his star receiver as “very questionable” for the showdown against Arizona.Though one offensive star is expected to sit on the sideline, another will suit up for USC for the first time this season.Senior running back Silas Redd is expected to make his return against the Wildcats, though junior tailback Tre Madden will continue to start after impressing in Redd’s absence. Freshman tailback Justin Davis will also continue to get touches, and Orgeron even mentioned after practice on Tuesday that he was impressed with fellow freshman back Ty Isaac.“Ample group of tailbacks that do a good job,” Orgeron said. “We have not discussed a rotation yet but I’m sure all those guys will get some snaps.”Orgeron has attempted to bring his squad closer by injecting much-needed doses of fun and energy into the program in Kiffin’s wake, adding desserts to the team’s buffet line and taking the team to a movie on Wednesday night ahead of his debut as USC head coach.“There’s a lot of new energy around here, everybody’s excited and we just can’t wait for Thursday,” redshirt junior cornerback Josh Shaw said. “I think you’re gonna see a lot of guys just flying around and just out there having fun.”That’s exactly what Orgeron wants to see, and he hopes that the pressure-free atmosphere he’s instituted will translate to better results on the field.“Obviously there’s probably gonna be some ups and downs that were have to go through,” Orgeron said. “But I want them to fight and compete and play with energy. That I do feel like we’re gonna do well.”last_img read more

Health Dept Confirms Some Labs Were Not Reporting Negative Tests

Posted on by

first_imgThe Florida Department of Health confirmed Wednesday that some private labs were not reporting negative COVID-19 test results to them, as required by the state.That ended up leading to 100 percent positivity rates being reported for those labs.Department of Health spokeswoman Olga Connor told Miami television station WPLG in an email that public and private labs are required to report all of their COVID-19 test results to the state, regardless of whether the tests are positive or negative. “In recent days, the Florida Department of Health noticed that some smaller, private labs weren’t reporting negative test result data to the state,” Connor wrote. “The Department immediately began working with those labs to ensure that all results were being reported in order to provide comprehensive and transparent data.”She went on to say that the Department of Health will continue to educate labs “on the proper protocol for reporting COVID-19 test results.”So far, state health officials have not disclosed how many labs reported incomplete data.last_img read more
