Air Canada grounds its Boeing Max 8s until at least July 1

MONTREAL — Air Canada says it intends to remove its grounded Boeing 737 Max 8 jets from service until at least July 1 in order to provide more certainty for passengers that wish to book flights in the coming months.Airlines around the world have been working to redeploy their fleets since their Max 8s were grounded last week following the deadly crash of an Ethiopian Airlines flight that killed all 157 people on board, including 18 Canadians.Air Canada says it has now adjusted its schedule through to April 30 to cover 98 per cent of its planned flights.It is also updating its May schedule to re-accommodate customers and optimize its fleet.Air Canada says it has taken several steps to adjust for grounded Max 8s, which represent about six per cent of its total fleet capacity.Among other things, it has substituted different aircraft in its fleet, chartered flights or leased aircraft from Air Transat, suspended some routes temporarily, and adjusted its rebooking policy for affected customers.

Exxon says proposed 25billion LNG project in BC could create 6000 jobs

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Exxon says proposed $25-billion LNG project in B.C. could create 6,000 jobs by Dirk Meissner, The Canadian Press Posted Jan 12, 2015 12:55 pm MDT VICTORIA – Texas-based energy giant Exxon Mobil Corp., has submitted plans to develop what could be a $25-billion liquefied natural gas project near Prince Rupert on British Columbia’s north coast.Exxon and its Canadian partner, Imperial Oil Ltd. (TSE:IMO), outlined a strategy for West Coast Canada LNG, or WCC LNG, in a 141-page report to the provincial government’s Environmental Assessment Office.Exxon said in the report that it considered eight potential export facility sites in the Kitimat and Prince Rupert areas before deciding to locate at Tuck Inlet, which has a deep-water shipping area and is within easy access to marine transport routes.“(The) WCC LNG project will leverage the extensive expertise of both Exxon Mobil and Imperial to develop the project resource in a safe and environmentally responsible manner that integrates community engagement into every aspect of the business,” the report said.It said Exxon has 40 years of experience developing LNG projects in Qatar, Indonesia and New Guinea and now wants to develop one in Canada.“WCC LNG project believes that Canada and B.C. are well positioned to further grow domestic gas production and provide globally competitive and sustainable LNG exports to attractive Asian and global markets.”The report comes as world oil and gas prices are falling and other major LNG developers, including Malaysian state-owned Petronas, put their B.C. LNG export facility plans on hold. Petronas recently said it supports B.C.’s recent environmental and tax rules governing LNG, but is taking more time to review its bottom line before making a final investment decision.Exxon said if it decides to go ahead with the WCC LNG project, construction will start in two years and the plant expected to be in operation by 2024. It said between 1,000 and 6,000 construction jobs could be created.B.C.’s Natural Gas Development Ministry called Exxon’s submission of its project description to the Environmental Assessment Office a major step forward.The province has formally requested that its environmental assessment process be permitted as a substitute for federal Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency’s review process.The Canadian Environmental Assessment Act requires federal Environment Minister Leona Aglukkaq to approve the substitution request. The federal agency is seeking public comments until Feb. 2 on the project and its potential effects on the environment.Eighteen LNG project proposals are currently underway in B.C., but investors have yet to make one final investment decision.The B.C. government has pinned much of the province’s economic future on LNG exports, saying the projects are equivalent to Alberta’s oil sands in terms of jobs and revenue generation. The government says LNG could create up to 100,000 jobs and produce hundreds of billions of dollars in revenue.Last week, Natural Gas Development Minister Rich Coleman came close to guaranteeing in an editorial that 2015 would see LNG companies deciding to proceed with B.C. projects.The province’s jobs plan, introduced in 2011, called for one LNG plant in 2015 and three in operation by 2020. read more

Security Council paves way for possible intervention force in northern Mali

In a unanimously adopted resolution, the 15-member body called on Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to provide, at once, military and security planners to the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), the African Union (AU) and other partners to help frame a response to a request by Mali’s transitional authorities for such a force, and to report back within 45 days.Upon receipt of the report, and acting under Chapter VII of the UN Charter, the Council said it was ready “to respond to the request of the Transitional authorities of Mali regarding an international military force assisting the Malian Armed Forces in recovering the occupied regions in the north of Mali.”Chapter VII of the Charter allows the Council to use force in the face of a threat to peace or aggression, taking “such action by air, sea, or land forces as may be necessary to maintain or restore international peace and security,” including blockades and other operations by the forces of Member States.In August, the Council urged ECOWAS, in cooperation with the transitional authorities, the AU Commission and regional countries, to prepare detailed proposals for a stabilization force to restore the territorial integrity of the country.Fighting between Malian Government forces and Tuareg rebels broke out in the country’s north in January. The instability and insecurity resulting from the renewed clashes, as well as the proliferation of armed groups in the region, drought and political instability in the wake of a military coup d’état in March, have driven 500,000 Malians from their homes, 270,000 of them to neighbouring countries.In addition, Islamist militants currently control the country’s north and have imposed strict Sharia law, including amputation of limbs as punishment.The Council called on Malian rebel groups to cut off all ties to terrorist organizations, notably Al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) and affiliated groups, and expressed its readiness to adopt targeted sanctions against those groups which do not do so. It also urged the Transitional authorities, rebels and other legitimate representatives of the local population in the northern Mali to engage, as soon as possible, in credible negotiations to seek a sustainable political solution in conformity with the country’s unity, and demanded that all groups in the north cease all human rights violations such as attacks against civilians, sexual violence, recruitments of child soldiers and forced displacements.Today’s Council resolution reiterated “grave concern” at the continuing deterioration of the security and humanitarian situation in the north of Mali, the increasing entrenchment of terrorist elements including AQIM, affiliated groups and other extremist groups, and its consequences for the countries of the Sahel and beyond.In addition, it strongly condemned the abuses of human rights committed “by armed rebels, terrorist and other extremist groups, including violence against its civilians, notably women and children, killings, hostage-taking, pillaging, theft, destruction of cultural and religious sites and recruitment of child soldiers,” and stressed that some of these acts might amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity. read more

Heineken Cup agreement set to continue without English clubs

first_imgTHE IRFU HAS joined the Welsh, Scottish, Italian and, crucially, French rugby unions in reconfirming that there will be an ERC-run European rugby competition in 2014/15 involving 20 teams, no matter how many countries are involved.English clubs’ plans to breakaway from the Heineken Cup to form the new Rugby Champions Cup now look in tatters, due to the fact that the PRL [Premiership Rugby Ltd.] was counting on the French and Welsh clubs to support their new competition. Tough times may lie ahead for the English clubs if they choose to remain on the outside.FFR [Fédération Française de Rugby] president Pierre Camou has been a key player in trying to influence a turnaround from the French clubs, whose umbrella group LNR have yet to formally pledge their allegiance to the ERC Accord.Camou’s insistence that the Top 14 clubs had absolutely no right to breakaway from the ERC was backed up by a reported €2 million pay-off to each of the French clubs in exchange for their agreement to remain in the Heineken Cup.Should a complete French u-turn come about, it will come as a huge relief to the IRFU and the four Irish provinces, who have strong financial and emotional dependence on the Heineken Cup. Irish rugby’s governing body has been calm and private throughout the recent months, preferring to do their negotiations outside of the media glare.The statement from the IRFU this evening read: A meeting was held in Dublin today (21 Nov) attended by FFR, FIR, IRFU, SRU and WRU to discuss the on-going issues surrounding European club competitions.All five Unions believe that it is critical to the interests of the game in Europe that the Unions are at the heart of the governance of cross-border club competitions given that rugby in each country is organised in a pyramidical structure.Clubs, provinces and regional organisations form an integral part of the development of the game throughout this structure, from grassroots to the international game.  Cross-border club competitions must not conflict with the development of the sport in Europe by Unions, this being in the best interest of players, spectators and the sport in general. The statement continues to reiterate that all five unions present at the meetings in Dublin today have reconfirmed their agreement on competition formats and financial distribution formula previously agreed by the six Unions who attended the mediated meeting in Dublin in October.There was also insistence that the ERC [European Rugby Cup] will remain in charge of the centralised sale and management of all commercial rights, amongst other things. There was, however, an admission that discussions over governance will be pursued in order to optimise the internal functioning of the existing organization [currently named ERC].Analysis: Ireland must cut out the defensive failings against All BlacksWhat Munster stadiums could be included in a 2023 Rugby World Cup bid?last_img read more

Monster Hunter World Open Beta Starts Next Weekend

first_imgStay on target Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Last weekend, Capcom held a private beta for Monster Hunter World on PS4. The beta did a great job of giving PS4 owners subscribed to PlayStation Plus a taste of what to expect. Thankfully, that wasn’t the only beta Capcom planned to hold. Starting next weekend, an open beta is being held for anyone who owns a PS4. If you missed out on the private beta, you’re not going to want to miss out on this one.Sharpen your Hammers! The #MHWorld Beta starts on Dec 22nd for ALL PS4 players!— Monster Hunter (@monsterhunter) December 15, 2017PS4 users can preload the open beta starting on December 18. Those who participated in the PS Plus Beta last weekend can use the same client to play the upcoming beta.Below are the start and end times:Start Time: December 22 at 9:00 a.m. PST / 12:00 p.m. EST / 5:00 p.m. GMT / 6:00 p.m. CETEnd Time: December 26 at 9:00 a.m. PST / 12:00 p.m. EST / 5:00 p.m. GMT / 6:00 p.m. CETI didn’t get a chance to play the private beta on account of being at PlayStation Experience last weekend so I’m pretty stoked about this upcoming one. The open beta hits at a great time considering that many will have time off for Christmas.As I said in my impressions piece, I believe Monster Hunter World has the potential to reach a broader audience. While Monster Hunter is a celebrated series, it was only ever for a small group of gamers. The games’ presentation and controls always left much to be desired. I’ve never been a fan of the series due to these issues, but Monster Hunter World has completely won me over. I’m very much looking forward to taking down huge monsters with my friends on PS4.Monster Hunter World releases on PS4 and Xbox One on January 26, 2018. The game will land on PC as well, but at a later date.center_img ‘God Eater 3’ on Switch Brings Franchise Back to Its RootsHands-On: ‘Monster Hunter World: Iceborne’ Beta Left Us Hung… last_img read more

Trent AlexanderArnold hails Liverpools Watford win

first_imgLiverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold says their emphatic 3-0 away win at Watford shows their confidence.Trent Alexander-Arnold scored a brilliant free-kick as Liverpool thrashed Watford 3-0 at Vicarage Road on Saturday.The victory puts Liverpool just two points behind Manchester City.“That’s just the confidence that we have got at the minute,” Alexander-Arnold told the club’s official website.“We are not going to concede that many goals – and the forwards can score the goals. As long as we keep that belief then I’m sure we will keep getting these types of results.“In the first half we found it quite tough but we managed to keep them out and we knew if we kept going we would get a good chance at goal ourselves.divock origi, liverpoolReport: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“That came in the second half and the later it went on, the better it was for us to break them down.”Alexander-Arnold also said manager Jurgen Klopp asked for him to take the free-kick.“Before the game me, Hendo (Henderson), Millie (James Milner), everyone was joking about who would take it (his free kick),” Alexander-Arnold added.“I think Hendo wants one so he stepped up with the ball in his hand. Then he passed it to me because the gaffer said before the game that me and Shaq (Xherdan Shaqiri) would be on them.“So that’s why when you look back at it, me and Hendo had a little moment together when we celebrated as a bit of a joke.“It’s always good to be able to score and contribute to a win; we were happy to get the win first and foremost.”last_img read more

Is Esquire Shafting Subscribers with Blinking Cover

first_imgThat thought has led to a number of “innovations” under Granger’s watch: novellas published in the margins, graffiti and wall-style coverlines and, most recently, a cover that blinks.To commemorate its 75th anniversary, 100,000 copies of the October issue of Esquire will feature a flexible electronic “paper” cover that allows the words “The 21st Century Begins Now” to scroll across it—a first for magazines, according to parent company Hearst.Click here to read about the company’s decision to publish a blinking cover, and here to read about the technology behind it.What’s interesting to note is that those 100,000 blinking covers have all been earmarked for Barnes and Noble and Borders—not, as one Esquire subscriber pointed out, his mailbox:As an Esquire subscriber, I was excited to read about this use of technology. They’ve been running special covers all year in celebration of 75th anniversary, so I was wondering what they were planning for the October issue. But now I’m ticked that the issue will only be available on the newsstand. What will subscribers receive? A consolation-prize cover? I wonder why Esquire decided to treat its subscribers as second-class citizens compared to the looky-loos who will pick it up and play with the cover for a few minutes at Borders or Barnes and Noble, but not actually buy it.I asked Granger for a comment. Here’s what he said: “Subscribers will get a more conventional, albeit beautiful cover—200,000 of those more conventional covers will also be distributed on newsstands.” RELATED VIDEO: Granger on the Industry’s Need to InnovateDavid Granger is clearly bored with magazines.Last fall, during a keynote at the FOLIO: Show in New York, Granger admitted that when he reflects on his job as the editor of Esquire, he gets bored with the print medium. “F*ck, I’m still editing a magazine,” he said at the time.last_img read more

COPY LINKAD Loading … New Zealand Shooting: Extremist Views Have ‘No Place In The World’ Says PM Members of the public react in front of the Masjd Al Noor Mosque as they fear for their relatives on March 15, 2019 in Christchurch, New Zealand.Kai Schwoerer/Getty Images”Hello brother” were the last words of a Muslim worshipper at the Al Noor mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand, before he was shot dead by Brenton Tarrant on Friday.The words were heard during the live stream when the shooter approached the entrance of the mosque and was greeted by the victim, who is yet to be identified. These words happened to be the victim’s last words before he was shot in his face by the attacker.The attack, which took the lives of 49 people, has shocked New Zealand to its very core. The gunman, a white supremacist, has been identified as a 28-year-old Australian. According to Fox News, Tarrant had written a 78-page manifesto in which he said that he was going to New Zealand just to train and carry out the attack.One of the reasons this attack surprised New Zealanders, as well as the entire world, was the extent of violence in an otherwise what many perceive as a peaceful country.The “Hello brother” comment had Twitter up in arms against Tarrant. One Twitter user wrote, “‘Hello brother’ a word came out of a pure soul filled with a peaceful faith. ‘Hello brother’ was said to a killer with a rifle pointed to this greeting. ‘Hello brother’ he said thinking that he is talking to a human with soul and feelings. ‘Hello brother’ was shot dead.””There is a crucial detail I wish to bring to your attention. Please. Amongst the chaos of today, the evil we both heard and saw, there was one incident that stood out. The first Muslim man to die, his final words were ”hello brother”. These words were uttered by a man who symbolized Islam. He had a rifle pointed at him by a man with clear intentions to kill and how did he respond? With anger? With aggression? No, with the most gentle and sincere greeting of ”hello brother”.Perhaps this hero was trying to diffuse the situation? [Allah] used this man to show the world the kindness that is Islam. I don’t know but what I want, is to make certain, that is that this detail isn’t lost amongst you,” the Facebook user wrote, in part. “That this man’s final act was an Islamic one, a sincere courageous and warm way to stop violence instead of fuelling it. May [Allah] grant this hero and the rest of the victims the highest level of paradise. Ameen.Ps For the entire week I will be greeting every man and woman with “hello brother” regardless of race or religion. Please do the same,” another Twitter user wrote.last_img read more
