Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 8, 2017center_img Image: Evan Vucci US PRESIDENT DONALD Trump lashed out at department store chain Nordstrom over its decision to stop selling his daughter’s clothing line – in what could be interpreted as blurring the lines between his family business and the presidency.“My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by Nordstrom,” Trump said in a tweet. “She is a great person – always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible!”The retailer, which has about 350 stores in the United States and Canada, said last week it was dropping Ivanka Trump’s line – which includes high-end women’s clothing, accessories and shoes – due to poor sales. Image: Evan Vucci 75 Comments Since his surprise victory in the November presidential election, Trump has used his Twitter feed to lambast companies for off-shoring jobs or for allegedly overcharging the federal government for aircraft.But the latest tweet was different in that it sought to defend part of Trump’s family business empire, which critics have said could be a source of profound conflicts of interest for the White House.Unlike other companies he has attacked on Twitter, including Lockheed, Boeing and Ford, Nordstrom stock had gained nearly 1% in the early afternoon.The upscale retailer did not immediately respond to a request for comment from AFP about the Twitter attack, but Nordstrom said in a statement last week that its decision was based purely on commercial merit.“In this case, based on the brand’s performance, we’ve decided not to buy it for this season,” the company said, noting the phase-out was part of its regular review of the 2,000 brands it sells.Nordstrom was one of several retailers that faced boycott calls for selling Trump family products or supporting the campaign.Anti-Trump activists created ‘Grab Your Wallet’ after the election to enlist consumers in boycotts to protest Trump’s agenda, which also has been met by waves of demonstrations inside and outside the United States.© – AFP, 2017Read: Putin’s main rival given suspended sentence – now he can’t run against the president in the 2018 election https://jrnl.ie/3230069 Feb 8th 2017, 10:57 PM last_img read more

Solution for Cyprus issue remains unresolved

first_img“Turkey is making no contribution to efforts for a viable and functional solution to the Cyprus issue,” Greek Foreign Minister Stavross Dimas said after meeting with Cypriot President Dimitris Christofias, during his visit in Cyprus this week. “Based on current facts we cannot be optimistic that a solution will be reached soon,” Dimas told reporters after the meeting. “Turkey could make steps toward a solution and abstain from actions, particularly in the Cypriot Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), that feed tension,” Dimas pointed out. He stressed that Athens supports the efforts made by President Christofias and added that Turkey needs to reconsider its stance. He termed his meeting with President Christofias useful and constructive, stressing that they discussed issues and problems of the greater region. He underlined that Greece supports the reunification of Cyprus through a viable, functional and fair solution based on the UN resolutions and the European Union (EU) principles. Dimas also met with his Cypriot counterpart Erato Kozakou-Marcoullis, who stressed that arbitration or mediation by the UN is out of the question, adding that the imposition of any solution plan by the UN is ruled out. Referring to the international conference issue, she said that the UN have already clarified that there will be no such conference if there is no prior agreement on the internal aspects of the Cyprus issue. She also said that no convergence is expected by January. Meanwhile, Parliament Speaker Yiannakis Omirou stressed after meeting with foreign minister Dimas that the solution of the Cyprus issue remains a top priority for the Greek government.

Senate Commerce Holds Aquaculture Hearing

first_imgMark Luecke (left) from Prairie AquaTech testifies on aquaculture before the Senate.A Senate hearing this week explored the future possibilities of domestic aquaculture. The Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation held a hearing on Jan.30, 2018, titled Growing the Future: Opportunities to Support Domestic Seafood Through Aquaculture. One of the four witnesses was Mark Luecke from Prairie AquaTech in South Dakota. Prairie AquaTech is a member of the Soy Aquaculture Alliance (SAA), of which the American Soybean Association (ASA) is a member. Luecke and the other witnesses testified about the enormous opportunities for domestic aquaculture production, as well as the many challenges.“We believe the reasons for our country’s slow growth in aquaculture include 1) the unavailability of high quality feed ingredients produced locally, which equates to over 50 percent of fish production costs, 2) the unavailability of investment capital to construct more fish production facilities, and 3) an inefficient regulatory pathway permitting fish production facilities while preserving our marine and land-based environments. An opportunity exists to improve our position,” Luecke testified.Prairie AquaTech created a process using high quality feed soybeans that eliminates allergenic proteins and sugars that limit inclusion levels in aquaculture feed. Following the hearing, ASA and SAA staff joined Luecke in visiting the South Dakota Congressional delegation to advocate for expanding opportunities for U.S. aquaculture. Testimony from all four witnesses is available here.last_img read more

UK concludes using Huawei in 5G is a manageable risk report says

Shown here is its Honor phone. Angela Lang/CNET The British government has reportedly concluded that any risks from the use of Huawei equipment in its 5G networks can be mitigated. That determination was made by the UK’s National Cyber Security Center (NCSC), according to a Financial Times report Sunday citing two unnamed sources familiar the conclusion, which hasn’t been made public. “As was made clear in July’s HCSEC oversight board, the NCSC has concerns around Huawei’s engineering and security capabilities,” an NCSC spokesperson said. “We have set out the improvements we expect the company to make.” “Our review of the right policy approach to 5G security and resilience is still ongoing,” a spokesperson for Prime Minister Theresa May said Monday. “The review is looking at a range of options and no decisions have been taken.”The conclusion runs contrary to US State Department efforts to discourage European countries preparing for the rollout of 5G — the high-speed, next-generation networking technology — from using equipment made by the Chinese tech company. US officials have reportedly met with representatives of the European Commission to warn them that the Chinese government could use Huawei equipment for spying. That warning followed escalating tensions between the US and Huawei that have seen the arrest of the company’s CFO in and 23 indictments thrust on the company by the United States. Preceding this was a year of warnings from the US against Huawei, for fear of the company’s coziness with the Chinese government, which raised concerns over espionage.

Intel says it will exit 5G phone modems just hours after Apple

The two sides announced the surprise agreement through a joint press release Tuesday at the same time lawyers presented opening arguments in a courthouse in Southern California. Apple and its contract manufacturers had given their statements, and Qualcomm’s head lawyer had nearly finished his remarks when the courtroom buzzed with the unexpected news.In a statement, Intel added that it will “complete an assessment of the opportunities for 4G and 5G modems in PCs, internet of things devices and other data-centric devices.” It also said it will “continue to invest in its 5G network infrastructure business.””We are very excited about the opportunity in 5G and the ‘cloudification’ of the network, but in the smartphone modem business it has become apparent that there is no clear path to profitability and positive returns,” Intel CEO Bob Swan said in a statement.Apple vs. QualcommThe writing was on the wall after Apple and Qualcomm settled, ending the two-year battle. Apple in January 2017 had accused Qualcomm of anticompetitive practices that have raised chip prices, restricted competition and hurt customer choice. Qualcomm, the world’s biggest mobile chipmaker, had countered that the iPhone wouldn’t be possible without its technology, and it deserved to be paid for its innovation.The settlement marks a big win for Qualcomm, which could have been forced to change its entire business model had it lost to Apple. The agreement is also a victory for consumers, who will once again have access to fast Qualcomm modems — including ones already compatible with existing 5G networks.

Apple makes its own applications processor — the brains of the iPhone — but it relies on third-party chips for network connectivity. From the iPhone 4S in 2011 to the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus in 2015, the sole supplier for those chips was Qualcomm. The following year, Apple started using Intel modems in some models of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, but it still used Qualcomm in versions for Verizon and Sprint.It continued that trend in 2017, but Apple’s latest phones — the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR, now only use Intel 4G chips. Apple blamed Qualcomm, but now that the two companies have settled their patent disputes, Qualcomm will again provide chips for Apple.For Apple, it’s likely too late to use Qualcomm chips in its iPhones coming later this year. But it’s believed the iPhones in 2020 will have Qualcomm’s 5G modems. It’s expected that every major flagship Android phone by the end of this year will have 5G. An Intel spokesman declined to say if Intel planned to exit the business before the settlement or because of the new agreement between Apple and Qualcomm.Investors seemed to approve of Intel’s decision. Shares in the chipmaker jumped almost 4% to $58.97 in after-hours trading.”Without Apple, Intel’s phone modem business is bereft of options,” said Charles King, an analyst with Pund-IT. “The settlement and licensing agreement left Intel without a clear way forward in handsets. The company is really better off focusing its energies and investments on 5G infrastructure and data center solutions.”Originally published April 16, 4:39 p.m. PT.Updates, 5:09 p.m.: Adds Apple vs. Qualcomm details and other background; 5:23 p.m.: Adds analyst comment; 5:32 p.m.: Adds Intel share price; 6:33 p.m.: Adds analyst comment. Tags Intel’s 5G modem was aimed for iPhones in 2020. Intel Intel will no longer be working on 5G chips for phones, leaving Apple with only one supplier for its iPhones, Qualcomm — the same company that it was battling in court until midday Tuesday.Intel late Tuesday said it plans to cease working on modems for 5G, the next-generation of wireless technology expected to supercharge your mobile connection. It had been working on a processor for Apple, with the chip expected to be in iPhones in 2020. Lately there have been worries the chip wouldn’t be ready until iPhones released in 2021.”The company will continue to meet current customer commitments for its existing 4G smartphone modem product line, but does not expect to launch 5G modem products in the smartphone space, including those originally planned for launches in 2020,” Intel said in a press release. Its only customer in modems is Apple. •last_img read more

This Company Wants You to Wear Your SIM Card

first_imgJune 11, 2014 Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. If the life of your phone has ever been claimed by a freak coffee spill, you are familiar with your cell’s SIM card. The little memory chip lets users switch over numbers, passwords, texts and contacts to a new phone in the event your current one meets the untimely demise of liquid spillage. One company is looking to alter the inevitable outcome (a new phone) by shifting SIM cards into the world of wearable technologyDOCOMO, one of Japan’s biggest mobile carriers unveiled their the first “SIM-based authentication device” prototype this week. Named Portable SIM, the card can be waved over any given device and your info can be swapped from a phone to a tablet or computer. This is achieved using wireless technologies Bluetooth and Near Field Communication (similar to Bluetooth but only requires devices to touch to establish a connection) to exchange data. Related: This Luxe Smartphone Could Be Yours for $10,000The company, which also recently rolled out a line of smart clothes and a fitness-tracking wristband, is still in the research stage. DOCOMO is working to shrink the 8-by-4-centimeter prototype to wearable size and understand how to use it to link up with devices like TVs and smart-car systems. Information about when it will be available to consumers has not been released.  While Portable SIM could be quite convenient, there is still the question of security. The company explained in its statement that one way they are working to insure that subscriber identities are kept out of hacker hands is by locking the phone number when the Bluetooth link is broken. However, the wearable-tech enthusiasts that decide to bring their Portable SIM poolside are on their own.  What crazy apps and gadgets have you come across lately? Let us know by emailing us at FarOutTech@entrepreneur.com or by telling us in the comments below.Related: Why the Future of Retail Will Blow Your Mind Register Now »center_img 2 min read Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Globallast_img read more

His name is Baby Charlie.According to the Facebook post, the girlfriend of Chinchilla’s son found Baby Charlie in the middle of the road where it had fallen from a tree.

APM Terminals set to begin construction in 2015 on 1 billion Costa

first_imgAfter years of lawsuits, appeals, and a strike in October that paralyzed the ports in Limón, APM Terminals is finally set to start construction on a new $1 billion terminal on Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast.The green light comes after the National Technical Secretariat of the Environment Ministry (SETENA) announced Wednesday afternoon that it had approved the project’s environmental impact study, one of the last major hurdles. The Dutch company APM Terminals already had won several appeals by the Atlantic Port Authority’s union to block the project from moving forward.Advocates of port modernization, which likely will begin in 2015, say it will create hundreds of jobs and serve as a catalyst for development in the Caribbean province, the poorest in Costa Rica. Environmentalists vowed to contest SETENA’s decision.The environmental assessment’s approval is valid for two years.SETENA issued its decision months ahead of schedule and with little fanfare. The agency issued a statement in late October saying it would push back notification to March 2015, after the Costa Rican Federation for Environmental Conservation (FECON) presented documents alleging irregularities in the environmental impact study that favored the project.The dockworkers union, SINTRAJAP, had hoped the the move would achieve what their October strike could not by forcing another environmental assessment and an evaluation of the contract terms. Unions have fought the concession since it was first signed by former President Laura Chinchilla in 2011.In 2012, a San José administrative court upheld the concession contract.Álvaro Sagot, an environmental lawyer who along with Mauricio Álvarez of FECON had urged SETENA to reject the environmental impact assessment, told The Tico Times they planned to appeal the decision to Environment Minister Edgar Gutiérrez, likely in early January.Sagot said that if the appeal to Gutierrez was unsuccessful they would turn to the Administrative Contention Court. Environmentalists are concerned about the project’s potential to harm Caribbean reefs in Costa Rica and Panama from sediment displacement.“Limón deserves development, that goes without saying, but not at the cost of the environment,” Sagot said in the telephone interview.Environmentalists and the dockworkers union might be on the ropes after the SETENA decision, but the business sector celebrated the announcement.“Costa Rica urgently needs to modernize its Caribbean ports,” said Union of Private-Sector Chambers and Associations President Ronald Jiménez in a statement. “According to the Global Competitiveness index Costa Rica is among the nations with the worst port infrastructure [115th out of 144 countries studied],” Jiménez said.Costa Rica has some of the worst port infrastructure in the world, yet 80 percent of its maritime cargo passes through the ports in Limón. APM Terminal’s 33-year concession grants the Dutch company exclusive rights to build and handle container traffic at the new terminal, which will float off the coast of Moín.APM Terminals published a poll in October showing that 88 percent of respondents in Limón believed the port would have a “positive impact” on the community.

Derrick Hall satisfied with Dbacks buying and se

first_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling A DEFT TOUCH – When you can list Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger and Andrew Luck as success stories on your resume, you’ve established you can coach quarterbacks. For Cardinal fans, only three years have passed since Kurt Warner was the franchise quarterback, but since every replacement has been a dog it’s felt like 21 years. Arians plus Carson Palmer may not equal Warner, but improvement seems inevitable.PLAYER’S COACH – Word is, Arians was let go in Pittsburgh because he was too soft with Ben Roethlisberger. Arians has made it no secret, he is a player’s coach. And in my experience, player’s coaches have shorter shelf-lives than disciplinarians. For a while, players seem to respond well to being treated like men. Then, gradually, they begin to take advantage of their freedoms and the good nature of the coach who took them off the leash. WHIZ OR GET OFF THE POT – Ken Whisenhunt had a good run with the Cardinals. The fact that he guided the franchise to its first and only Super Bowl appearance chisels Whiz’s face onto a rather sad Mount Rushmore of Cardinal coaches. But it was time for him to go. In the end, Whisenhunt gave his own coaching abilities too much credit. He behaved as if he could plug any quarterback into his system and it would succeed. It didn’t succeed. Whether Bruce Arians was the right or wrong call, the team needed a new direction.THE KANGOL – Few people have been able to pull off the Kangol hat successfully. Why, you can count them on one hand. Rerun from What’s Happening?, Huggy Bear from Starsky & Hutch, umm…. OK, there are two. Two famous people have been able to pull off the Kangol. Two! Arians would have a better chance bringing back the stovepipe hat or the Carmen Miranda fruitbasket-on-the-head-thing than he would trying to match fashion with the great Fred Berry. We can only pray that Arians won’t wear his lid of choice during a game. AGGRESSION – The Cardinals are going to throw the ball downfield. Patrick Peterson is going to play some offense. The team won’t even dress a fullback. Bruce Arians may be a grandfather, but he doesn’t run your grandfather’s offense. When Arians was in Pittsburgh, the Steelers became the first team to have a 4,000-yard passer, two 1,000-yard receivers and a 1,000-yard rusher in the same season. Last year, rookie Andrew Luck threw the ball 40 times per game for the NFL Coach of the Year. The Cardinals may not win more than they lose this season, but it won’t be because they don’t take chances.HORTON HEARS A SNUB – I wouldn’t have hired Ray Horton as the team’s new head coach, but it couldn’t have been easy for Cardinal fans to see him leave. The defense was outstanding under Horton last season, and in a perfect world, the organization could have hired a new head coach and kept the dreadlocked defensive rockstar. That wasn’t going to happen. Horton is in Cleveland now and Todd Bowles gets the crack at being Arians’ defensive coordinator. I’m not saying Bowles won’t work out, but you hate to mess with something that was working so well. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories “WINNER” – I can neither confirm nor deny that Bruce Arians has tiger’s blood, but, in the unforgettable words of Charlie Sheen, Arians is a “winner!” The Cards’ new head coach has spent 20 years in the NFL. In 15 of his 20 seasons, he’s been part of a winning football team. The only bump in his winning road occurred in Cleveland, and even that stint can be considered a success story, at least by the Browns’ standards. Since the franchise returned to the league in 1999, the Browns have finished .500 or better three times. Arians was there for two of them.AGE – Eighteen months ago, Bruce Arians was considering retirement. At age 60 and having just been fired at Pittsburgh, he was certain his dream of being an NFL head coach just wasn’t going to happen. Chuck Pagano resurrected Arians’ career. And when Pagano had health problems, Arians proved he can run a successful NFL locker room. However, there must be a reason why Arians was never taken seriously as a head coaching candidate. This year, we’ll find out why he was overlooked or ask how he could have possibly slipped through the cracks.center_img The 2013 Arizona Cardinals season kicks off this week.Finally, Carson Palmer will play a real game as a Cardinal. Rashard Mendenhall will start. And rookie Tyrann Mathieu makes his professional debut.I’ve managed to mention six of the many Cardinal newcomers in my “New Faces” series this preseason. Time for a seventh and final breakdown. Let’s put new head coach Bruce Arians on the scales.
