CEOS for Royal Bank, Enbridge, call for better balance in energy policies

first_img“We need to a have a strong energy policy in this country. We need to have a strong climate policy and we need to have Indigenous reconciliation. Those need to be at the policy or umbrella level,” Monaco said.“Once those are set and we know the rules as investors, then we can say, ‘All right, I got the game plan, now here’s how I can build a project within that context.”’ TORONTO, ONT – The CEOs of Canada’s largest bank and its largest pipeline company say the country needs an energy strategy that will better balance environmental and Indigenous goals with the need to develop its abundant oil and gas resources.But Royal Bank CEO Dave McKay and Al Monaco, CEO of Calgary-based Enbridge Inc., had little in the way of specific advice for government during a Canadian Club event in Toronto.Over a 45-minute discussion, the two agreed the world has a growing thirst for Canada’s energy production and the sector contributes mightily to the country’s gross domestic product.- Advertisement -But they also noted it’s suffering from what they say is an undeserved negative environmental image and that international investors have lost interest in funding Canadian projects.Monaco says Canada has among the best resources, capital markets, regulatory systems and technologies in the world but it needs an energy strategy to “put the pieces together.”He says the government shouldn’t mix social policy issues with its project regulatory reviews, a point made by critics of Ottawa’s proposed Bill C-69 to replace the National Energy Board, although he didn’t mention the bill specifically.Advertisementlast_img read more

‘City have had a SH**TY season and showed NO ATTITUDE against Real Madrid’

first_imgStoke City forward Joselu has SLAMMED Manchester City and Yaya Toure after an effortless performance in the Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid.Manuel Pellegrini’s Citizens crashed out of the last four after Fernando’s own goal sent Zinedine Zidane’s side into the final with a 1-0 aggregate victory over two legs.City disappointed in one of the biggest matches in their history, registering just TWO shots on target across both matches.Toure made his first appearance since helping City demolish Stoke 4-0 on April 23 and the ex-Barca midfielder was largely ineffective, sluggish in his movement around the Bernabeu surface.And former Real Madrid forward Joselu was not impressed. Speaking to Spanish radio station Cadena SER, the Potters star ranted: “Manchester City had no attitude in the game.“They almost made it to the finals despite wandering on the pitch.“My [Stoke City] team mates are complaining a lot in the team’s Whatsapp group because weeks ago Yaya Toure out-powered us in the league.“He ran so much he even got injured playing against us, as opposed to his performance [against Madrid].“Toure was wandering on the pitch. He should have run rather than against us in the league.“Manchester City have had a sh**ty season.“My team-mates were saying in the Whatsapp group that Manchester City played like a group of friends kicking the ball about at the school´s playing ground.”“Manchester City played with no attitude whatsoever and didn´t deserve to be in the Champions League semi finals.” 1 Yaya Toure was substituted after 61 minutes following a poor performance at the Bernabeu last_img read more

Barloworld tops in Giro, Argus

first_img12 March 2007Blessed with beautiful clear weather and almost windless conditions, the Cape Argus Pick ‘n Pay Cycle Tour provided a fitting conclusion to the Giro del Capo as Team Barloworld’s Robert Hunter secured a home victory for South Africa on Sunday.With his teammates providing excellent support, Hunter surged ahead at the finish to sprint to the title ahead of last year’s Argus winner, Steffen Radochla of Team Wiesenhof-Felt, with Regiostrom Senges’ Malaya van Ruitenbeek grabbing the final podium position.Following the top three over the finish line were MTN Microsoft’s top sprinter Malcolm Lange and Davitamon-Win’s Jurgen Roelandts.TeamworkMost of the hard work for Hunter was done by Hugo Sabido and Felix Cardenas, with Fabrizio Guidi adding further help at the end to ensure Hunter took the win.The South African star described his victory as a fantastic day on which his teammates did everything right and dominated the racing. He admitted matters nearly got away from his team towards the end, but said strength in numbers prevented that happening.Said Hunter: “As a South African, to win this race, and I hadn’t raced it in 10 years, means something.” Previously his best result in the Argus was a second-place finish.Women’s winVictory in the women’s race went to Duravit’s Anke Erlank Moore. She credited her win, which was her fourth in the Argus, to mountain bike training.She and Anriette Schoeman, who missed the race after suffering a broken wrist in a training accident two weeks before the race, are the only two women to win the event over the past eight years.Second place went to 17-year-old Cherise Taylor. Moore afterwards picked her as a future winner of the race. Ending third was Marissa van der Merwe.Giro winnerWhile Hunter snatched the Cycle Tour title, it was another Team Barloworld rider, Alexander Efimkin, who won the Giro del Capo. The Russian took the honours ahead of Cardenas, with South Africa’s David George, riding for CSC Marcello, finishing third, followed by two more Barloworld cyclists, Sabido and Ryan Cox.George, who attempted to attack on the final climb of the Argus in a desperate bid for the stage victory, admitted that going up against such a strong team was a challenge too difficult to overcome. He added that the 109-kilometre route was maybe a little too short and he didn’t have enough climbs to allow him to have a strong go at winning the final stage.Four men in the top five of the overall classification was ample testament to the strength of the Barloworld outfit, and it spoke volumes for the hard work they did throughout the Giro.Jersey winnersThe honours didn’t end there for Barloworld either, as Sabido secured the Powerade King of the Mountains title.MTN Microsoft’s Daryl Impey, seventh in the Argus, won the Pickford’s points jersey after capturing the prologue and the 120-kilometre second stage, and Konica Minolta’s Chris Froome won the MTN Young African jersey awarded to the top under-23 African rider.Efimkin called his victory in the Giro “an important win”. He complimented the organisers on a smoothly put together event, and his teammates for the professionalism they showed throughout the race.“The race was good,” he said, “and the scenery beautiful throughout the week.”Success for charitiesOther big winners on the Argus were the charities which benefited from, among others, the entries of former Tour de France champions Jan Ullrich and Greg LeMond.Ullrich raised funds for the Starfish Greathearts Foundation and the Imibala charity, while LeMond rode to raise awareness about diabetes. He was in a group of 200 Virgin Active cyclists, with the gym chain donating money to the Education Active Foundation on their behalf.Ullrich said he thoroughly enjoyed his ride. “It was a wonderful race, wonderful conditions,” he said.“The spirit was marvellous. Everyone from the slow riders to the fast ones had smiles on their faces. I don’t know how much money I’ve raised for the funds, but I hope that it’s a lot. It’s something that I hold close to my heart, particularly raising money for children.”Make a DifferenceAnother prominent team of fundraisers featured former Rugby World Cup winning captain Francois Pienaar teaming up with former Bafana Bafana captain Lucas Radebe – who had flown out from Leeds for the event – riding together on a tandem. They were cycling for Make a Difference (MAD).MAD is Pienaar’s brainchild and among its honorary members it features some of the greatest rugby players in history: New Zealand’s 1987 World Cup winning captain David Kirk;1991 Australian World Cup winning skipper Nick Farr-Jones;Two-time World Cup winner John Eales, who was the victorious captain in 1999; andEngland’s 2003 World Cup winning captain Martin Johnson.What that means, in case you hadn’t worked it out yet, is that every Rugby World Cup winning captain in history has given his backing to MAD.

Poll: Do You Want to Use Chrome OS?

first_imgMassive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… Related Posts Tags:#enterprise#Products klint finleycenter_img Google’s vice president for Chrome engineering, Linus Upson, believes that 60% of businesses could immediately switch to Chrome OS and put corporate system administrators out of work. At least that’s what The New York Times reported he said, though the paper didn’t quote Upson directly. But would YOU want to use Chrome OS for your work?Last month Phil Wainewright drew parallels between Chrome OS and forgotten “dummy terminal” projects like Oracle‘s Network Computer and Sun‘s Javastation. “The thing I’ve always noticed is that no one ever says, ‘I want one of those.’” Wainewright wrote “The proposition is always promoted as an ideal solution for someone else’s computing needs.”To Google’s credit, it’s starting at the top and giving CEO Eric Schmidt a Chrome OS computer, but the question remains: who really wants to use it?Steve Jobs talked about replacing desktop OSes with web OSes as early as 1996, and Apple originally encouraged developers to create web apps instead of native apps for the iPhone. But Apple has obviously moved away from that line of thinking. It’s true that iOS is a slimmed down version of OSX, but it’s also more than just a browser. Apple has been moving towards appliances and context-aware computing, instead of generic web terminals.And for business use, many workers need more than a puny, underpowered machine. Wainewright writes that call center workers will actually need faster computers than the rest of us, even when using web-based tools, because response time is critical.We recently covered five cloud-centric OSes available today. Some of them have been around for years, and can run on old desktop computers. None of them has yet to catch fire in the enterprise or anywhere else – not even Meego, which is sponsored by Intel and Nokia.

Why Facebook Ads Are Like Pop Art

first_imgGuide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Take this “Get Out of Debt with Siegel” ad on a dirty packed train car. You see it on the Chicago Red Line, a train that traverses almost the entire city – from the north side to the far south, passing steel buildings and open lots and fast cars. This train pauses for less than one-minute intervals to open its doors, swallowing in a new stampede of directionless people. It chugs on to the next stop, pausing only in an emergency. What better space to experience a late-night infomercial?Another writer described the experience of logging onto Facebook as entering Grand Central Station. It’s a space that’s ripe for advertisements. She felt deluged by friends, and has since defriended down to a lean number of 250, keeping mostly closer friends and family members. Doing this makes Facebook feel more like a neighborhood get-together and less of a visit to one of the busiest train stations in the United States. Facebook ads appear in what feels like a busy train station, perhaps. Facebook is still “feeling its way around the ad business.” Yet it did happen to sell more than $3 billion worth of ads last year. It’s probably because such ads operate on the simple idea of liking something. It’s something that Andy Warhol knew quite well.Facebook and The Laws of Pop Art“Anything you can post on a page, you can turn into an ad,” says Facebook. The content becomes easier to see as more users keep liking it. Advertisers receive the same sort of instant gratification as the ready and willing Facebook users. Everyone likes, everyone wins – at least, in a superficial sense. We become advertisements of ourselves, looking into a virtual mirror. Facebook’s ad strategy reminds me a lot of the concept behind pop art. In 1963, Andy Warhol said that one day everyone would be world-famous for 15 minutes. Reality TV and viral YouTube videos have made that happen, stretching those 15 minutes to perhaps 15 intense hours on the Internet. On Facebook, that idea becomes a reality even moreso because time is not linear, and fame happens within smaller sub-niches – so 25 people might be having their 15 minutes of fame at the exact same time. The social media celebrity is different than more traditional ideas of pop culture celebritydom that one witnesses at the Grammys, for example. Today everyone will be famous to 15 people, for 15 minutes. It’s the experience of pop art concepts on Facebook. Or maybe it’s Facebook pop art. Let’s examine.Here’s the Warhol version of pop art: Facebook is about liking things. And so is pop art. The two should really get to know each other. The experience of logging onto Facebook is like no other – it is like feeling one’s way through a black hole of non-linear time and space, plunging through other peoples’ memories and ideas. “Let’s do the time warp” doesn’t really explain what the Facebook experience feels like. “And the ad business still isn’t sure what to make of Facebook,” writes AllThingsD. “Grand new marketing paradigm, or a collection of 800 million people who don’t seem very interested in clicking on ads?”Are people clicking on Facebook ads? Such advertisements on Facebook sometimes feel more like those strange banner ads on public transportation than the more alluring targeted advertisements. I’m talking about ads on the train, the ones that you gaze at when you’re dead tired and just want to zone out, but you can’t. Those ads are there, staring back at you. Or maybe Facebook ads are more like pop art, culled from the banal, the commercial, memory and the everyday. They want you to like them, like, a lot. The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Facebook’s Pop Art Ad Strategy: You Will Like ThisWarhol produced Campbell’s Soup Cans in 1962. He took an everyday consumer culture object and silkscreened its image onto a canvas. Pop art was born.Facebook doesn’t take ads and make them into art – but an artist could easily do that, calling it Facebook Pop Art. That artist could take a Facebook ad, paint it onto canvas and display it in a gallery. Too easy? Are you ready to like it? This could work. Except advertising on Facebook doesn’t make complete sense.ReadWriteWeb’s Dave Copeland reports that the 845 million Facebook users that the company claimed in its IPO filing may not actually be quite accurate. Not surprisingly, 6% of those accounts may be fakes and another 5% may just folks who have downloaded the Facebook mobile app, which runs in the background (and might be collecting data from your text messages). Does advertising on Facebook make any sense at all? Or, rather, do pop art concepts make sense? Yes of course – if you want people to like you/it/the product, that is. And like they will. And here, you are the product, completing the cycle of personalized advertising. All you have to like is yourself.“The only number an advertiser cares about is the number of prospective customers it can reach — and what it takes to get them to buy whatever it is the advertiser is selling,” Marty Levine, executive vice president of product development at Prosyna Inc., told ReadWriteWeb.Being an “active user” on Facebook – and other networks, for that matter – is kind of like being a passive consumer, roaming about on Facebook with no real purpose. It is like strolling the streets taking photos with the Instagram app, and uploading them with no prior thought or consideration. It is strolling along, uploading things you like to Facebook, where social media pop culture lives. The actual soup cans, sans Warholianism: Facebook becomes a magazine. You put yourself on the cover of a magazine and then people like you. Or they just catch glimpses of you on Facebook. Either way, you’ve made the magazine, you’re in the public eye. Pop art is about liking things. Facebook advertisements are about liking things. And the more users like an idea, a status update or an image, the more advertisers know about them. In this pop art Facebook landscape, however, what does a like actually mean? It might be little more than a clever, passive verb. It is easy to digest, it is light and it hardly means a thing. It is something that you like.If you have ideas for the Facebook version of a pop art ad might look like, leave a comment below.Images via Wikimedia Commons and INeedToStopSoon.com.

Congress Passes Bipartisan Cures Bill Allowing Certain Small Business Sponsored HRAs

first_imgCCH Tax Day ReportThe Senate on December 6 passed the 21st Century Cures Bill (HR 34) by a 94-to-5 vote. The bill passed in the House on November 30 by a 392-to-26 vote (TAXDAY, 2016/12/01, C.1). President Obama is expected to sign the bill.Among other things, the bill would allow certain small businesses to use qualified Health Reimbursement Accounts (HRAs) without Patient Protection Affordable Care Act (PPACA) (P.L. 111-148)-related penalties. Certain limits to the accounts would apply, however, such as an annual cap of $4,950 per year ($10,000 for families). Further, the employee must provide proof of minimum essential coverage. And the employer must not be an applicable large employer as defined under the PPACA, nor offer a group health plan to any of its employees.Traditionally, many small businesses provided a health benefit to their employees through an HRA. In Rev. Rul. 61-146, 1961-2 CB 25, the IRS determined that if an employer reimburses an employee’s substantiated premiums for non-employer sponsored hospital and medical insurance, the payments are excluded from the employee’s gross income. The exclusion also applies if the employer pays the premiums directly to the insurer.After Congress passed the PPACA, the IRS released Notice 2013-54, I.R.B. 2013-40, 287, which described these arrangements as employer payment plans. Therefore, they are considered to be group health plans subject to the PPACA’s market reforms, including the prohibition on annual limits for essential health benefits and the requirement to provide certain preventive care without cost sharing. Failure to comply with the PPACA’s market reforms triggers excise taxes under Code Sec. 4980D. The excise tax reaches $100 per affected individual per day. In Notice 2015-17, I.R.B. 2015-14, 845, the IRS provided transition relief from the penalties but the relief expired after June 30, 2015.The HRA requirements for qualified small businesses within the bill would apply to years beginning after December 31, 2016. Further, transition relief provides that the relief under Notice 2015-17 will be treated as applying to any plan year beginning on or before December 31, 2016. President Obama has said that he intends to sign the bill as soon as it reaches his desk (TAXDAY, 2016/12/06, C.1).By Jessica Jeane, Wolters Kluwer News Stafflast_img read more

Astronaut Declines Presidential Invitation, Science Her Excuse

first_imgShe sends regrets, from orbitImage via WikipediaAstronaut Sandra Magnus won’t be joining her six fellow crewmates in the presidential inauguration parade in which they’ve been invited to march next month. But she’s got good reason: She’s busy doing experiments in areas ranging from low-gravity materials science work and human physiology, 350 kilometers up in space. She was dropped off on the International Space Station last month by the space shuttle Endeavor during a repairs-and-renovation mission. “But I’m sure she’ll be doing it in spirit,” says NASA spokesperson Bob Jacobs. Magnus will be in orbit until February. Joining the astronauts on the Earthwalk will be a conceptual model of a lunar rover and astronaut and engineer Gregory Chamitoff, whom Magnus replaced on the space station. This is not the first time NASA has marched in an inaugural parade, but it’s the first in recent memory to include astronauts, Jacobs says. And a lunar rover hasn’t been rolled out for a parade since Richard Nixon’s second inauguration in 1973.
