Trade war fears and tech jitters stalk global stock markets

first_imgLONDON – Global stock markets fell for a second day Tuesday as investors continued to fret over a looming trade war between the U.S. and China and mounting public scrutiny of technology companies.Stocks have been trending lower for weeks largely because of a series of tariffs announced by U.S. President Donald Trump and the Facebook data privacy scandal, which has raised the prospect of tighter regulation for social media and other tech stocks.In the last week, Trump has also tweeted repeatedly about his new favourite foe, Amazon, whose owner also owns The Washington Post, which has been critical of the Trump administration.Trump has approved possible higher U.S. duties on $50 billion of Chinese goods in response to complaints that Beijing steals or pressures foreign companies to hand over technology. Those tariffs come on top of previous proposals to raise tariffs on imported steel and aluminum.In response, China announced it is raising tariffs on $3 billion of U.S. goods including pork, apples and steel pipe, increasing the risk of a broader conflict that might depress global trade.“The mood remains decidedly bearish, and there is certainly no shortage of reasons to be fearful,” said Chris Beauchamp, chief market analyst at IG. “It’s times like this when investors face a choice — whether to sit and await developments or plunge back in.”That was evident in the performance of stocks on Tuesday.Returning from the long Easter holiday weekend, Europe’s stock markets tracked others lower, though the scale of the losses were diminished by expectations of a rebound on Wall Street later.In Europe, Germany’s DAX fell 0.8 per cent to 11,999 while London’s FTSE 100 declined 0.2 per cent to 7,037. France’s CAC 40 was 0.5 per cent lower at 5,140.Wall Street was poised for some solid gains at the open Tuesday with Dow futures and the broader S&P 500 futures up 0.5 per cent. On Monday, the S&P posted its worst start to a quarter since October 2011 and saw the index fall below its 200-day moving average for the first time in almost 2 years.U.S. technology companies are in the spotlight, notably Amazon, which posted hefty losses of around 5 per cent Monday after Trump again voiced his concerns about the company on Twitter.The sector was already in the gaze of investors after Facebook’s data scandal last month that has raised the prospect of heightened regulation. Netflix, Microsoft and Google parent Alphabet have all seen their share prices decline.“Pressure on the sector doesn’t appear to be going away in the near-term which will continue to act as a drag on indices,” said Craig Erlam, senior market analyst at OANDA.Earlier in Asia, the Shanghai Composite Index lost 0.8 per cent to 3,163.63 and Tokyo’s Nikkei 225 shed 0.4 per cent to 21,292.29. Sydney’s S&P-ASX 200 declined 0.1 per cent to 5,751.90. Elsewhere, Seoul’s Kospi ended down 27 points at 2,442.43. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng bucked the trend, ending up 0.2 per cent at 30,137.49.Elsewhere, the euro was flat at $1.23 while the dollar rose 0.3 per cent to 106.23 yen. In the oil markets, a barrel of U.S. crude gained 22 cents to $63.23 per barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange while Bren crude, used to price international oils, rose 29 cents to $67.93 in London.last_img read more

FurBearers appealing to Premier Horgan after lawsuit against conservation officer rejected by

first_imgVANCOUVER, B.C. – The executive director of the Association for the Protection of Fur-Bearing Animals says she’s going to be petitioning Premier John Horgan to make changes to the rules governing Conservation Officers in B.C. after the B.C. Court of Appeal has dismissed the Association’s lawsuit against a conservation officer who chose to destroy a bear cub two years ago.In May 2016, South Peace resident Tiana Jackson discovered a black bear cub lying on a gravel road near her home, roughly 50 kilometres from Dawson Creek. Jackson reportedly called the Conservation Officer Service after the mother bear didn’t return and brought the cub home, giving it food and water while keeping it in a dog kennel.While en route to Jackson’s home, conservation officer Micah Kneller reportedly called her for an update and explained to her after learning that the cub had been placed in a kennel that it would have to be put down. Despite arranging for the bear to be accepted at the Northern Lights Wildlife Society in Smithers, Jackson said that Kneller officer refused, and euthanized the bear via lethal injection. “We’re asking for the Province to define the duties of a conservation officer and to provide transparency in doing so,” said Fox. “We’re also asking for independent oversight because right now the Conservation Officer Service is essentially a private army. They review their own complaint process; the duties aren’t defined in the legislation. There’s a need for conservation officers to be very clear within their duties of when they can and when they can’t kill an animal. Right now that’s not clear at all.”With files from CBC News: Last November, Jackson and the Association – which also goes by the name ‘The Fur-Bearers’ – filed a lawsuit in B.C. Supreme Court against Kneller, the B.C. Conservation Officer Service, and the Minister of Environment. In his ruling the following month, Supreme Court Justice G.C. Weatherill stated that “In my view, the management of wildlife resources by conservation officers, as contemplated by the Wildlife Act, includes the authority to kill wildlife in circumstances broader than those set out in [Section 79 of the Wildlife Act].” In January, The Fur-Bearers announced that they would be appealing the verdict to the B.C. Court of Appeal, but the CBC News is reporting that the higher court has also dismissed the Fur-Bearers’ case. Reading the appeal court’s decision, Justice Harvey Groberman said that it would be inappropriate to consider the proceedings as a case about Kneller’s actions and that the power to kill animals as outlined by the Wildlife Act is not limited to section 79, as the Fur-Bearers’ Arden Beddoes lawyer argued.The B.C. Ministry of Environment released the following statement after this morning’s verdict:“Not a single conservation officer relishes the thought of having to put down an animal – euthanization is a last resort. Conservation officers are guided by provincial wildlife policy, as well as their experience and expertise, to make decisions in the field every day. The previous court decision affirms our understanding of the authorities granted to Conservation Officers under the Wildlife Act.‎ As this matter is before the courts, it would be inappropriate to comment further.”The Fur-Bearers’ executive director Lesley Fox said that she’s frustrated by the Court’s verdict and that the Association is setting up a call to action and appealing to Premier John Horgan to have conservation officers’ duties to be exactly defined.last_img read more

Pros shunned sports bets 1 year ago. Now, leagues are all-in

SECAUCUS, N.J. — American professional sports leagues used to fight sports betting as an existential threat until the U.S. Supreme Court handed them a loss. They widely lost again when state legislatures rejected their pleas to be cut in on the action under new laws.Now, nearly a year after the high court cleared the way for any state to choose whether to take wagers, the leagues have completely changed their tune to embrace the private deals offered via legalized sports gambling, both in young markets and prospective ones.Numerous sports have inked marketing deals with gambling companies to become official sports betting providers, agreements that include a lot of cross-promotion and the ability for sportsbooks to use a wealth of official league data, which often goes beyond offerings of other providers.Leagues and even individual teams now have employees whose main job is to seek out new business opportunities involving sports betting.___Follow Wayne Parry at AP sports: and Parry, The Associated Press read more

Supreme Court confirms legal victory by Dunkin Donuts Quebec franchisees

OTTAWA — Former franchisees that ran coffee shops under the Dunkin’ Donuts banner in Quebec have won a 13-year battle against the parent company.The Supreme Court of Canada on Thursday dismissed a request to hear an appeal of a Quebec Court of Appeal decision last year.The ruling forces Dunkin’ Brands Canada Ltd. to pay the 21 former operators of 32 locations in the province nearly $18 million, including interest and legal costs.The former franchisees sued the company in 2003 for failing to live up to its obligation to promote the U.S. donut chain’s brand in Quebec as it faced growing competition from Tim Hortons.Quebec Dunkin’ Donuts decision may present slippery slope for Canadian franchises company had alleged that the franchisees didn’t manage the brand according to its standards.In 2012, the Quebec Superior Court ruled in favour of the franchisees, cancelled their leases and contracts, and ordered Dunkin’ Donuts to pay $16.4 million in damages.Three years later, the Court of Appeal unanimously upheld the ruling but reduced the award to $10.9 million.Only four Dunkin’ Donuts locations remain in Quebec, all in the Montreal area. read more

These shaggy red apes are the largest arboreal mammal and the only great ape found in Asia.The other great apes—gorillas, chimpanzees, and bonobos—are all native to Africa.Long, flowing, reddish hair covers most of an orangutan’s gray skin. Its stocky body has a flexible pelvis, a thick neck, and bowed legs. The orangutan’s arms are longer than its legs, reaching nearly to its ankles when the ape stands up. Like other apes, orangutans don’t have a tail.Orangutans spend most of their lives in trees and travel by swinging from branch to branch with their long arms. They usually build a new nest every night, but may occasionally reuse one.Most of the orangutan’s forest habitat has been destroyed to make palm oil plantations; and unfortunately, these highly intelligent red apes are now extinct in much of Asia. On top of that, poachers often kill orangutan mothers and sell their young to the illegal pet trade.San Diego Zoo Global is working to raise awareness of the dangers all great apes face. We provide financial funding and support various conservation projects via the Association of Zoos and Aquarium’s Ape Taxon Advisory Group’s Conservation Initiative.

Sloths are not great ground walkers, yet they are great swimmers and can drop from a tree into a river to swim across it while doing the breaststroke! When sleeping, sloths often curl up in a ball in the fork of a tree. Sloths spend almost their entire life upside down in the trees. They eat, sleep, mate, and give birth from this position hanging high among the branches.Sloths are the only mammals whose hair grows in the opposite direction from the hair of other mammals. To accommodate their upside lifestyle, the hair parts in the middle of the belly and grows upward toward the back. The hair on the face points upward, too.

Car breakins spike in Vancouver

first_img Writing down serial numbers will help police return stolen items to you — if they turn up, Vancouver police spokeswoman Kim Kapp said.Thieves recently made off with Dana Dean’s purse in less time than it took the woman to grab a cup of joe.Dean, who ran into an east Vancouver Starbucks Coffee with her cellphone and debit card on her way to work, thought her purse would be safe on the seat in her locked car. After all, she wouldn’t be gone more than five minutes. She was wrong.“I know better,” she said last week. “I almost always take my purse (with me).”Dean’s situation is one example of what police say is a growing problem in Vancouver: smash-and-grab auto prowls.Auto prowl cases are beyond the normal range for this time of year, especially on the east side of town, said Kim Kapp, Vancouver Police Department spokeswoman. The problem, which is usually at its highest during the holiday shopping season, had more than double the cases in August and September of this year compared with the same months last year, she said. There were 62 cases reported between Oct. 1 and 9 of this year, compared with 73 total cases reported in October 2011.“It’s starting to become pretty significant numbers,” Kapp said.Vandals are looking for valuables — purses, backpacks, laptops, electronics and smartphones — left inside cars parked at restaurants, day care centers, shopping malls, apartment complexes and in the occasional residential neighborhood. Reported cases are spread throughout the day and night, although daytime break-ins tend to be more popular in east Vancouver, according to police data.“It’s always shocking people would leave that kind of valuable property in their car,” Kapp said.She suggests people not use cars to store valuables. If it can’t be avoided, she says it’s a good idea to store items in the trunk before you leave for your destination. That way, thieves at your destination don’t see you storing your valuables.“There’s no excuse to leave your purse on the front seat of the car,” Kapp said.Police and Neighbors on Watch volunteers are aware of the growing problem and will keep an eye on parking lots, Kapp said. But “it can be difficult to target enforcement when you don’t know when and where it’s going to happen,” she said. Click to enlarge.last_img read more

Could Democrats Really Turn Texas Blue In 2018

Roger Williams (TX-25) was not present but members of the community carried on with the town hall asking questions of local policy experts and a stand-in forThe last time a Democrat won statewide office in Texas, grunge rock topped the music charts. The state has been solidly red ever since Republican George W. Bush took over from Democrat Ann Richards in the Governor’s mansion. That was more than 20 years ago.Houston Chronicle columnist Erica Grieder is making a bold prediction. She thinks 2018 will be the year Texas turns blue again. She says the election of Donald Trump as president has a lot to do with it.Grieder says the very fact the Republican Party has been in power for so long, and focused so much on keeping its conservative base happy, will likely lead voters to consider Democrats.“We’re seeing discussions of bathroom bills and constitutional carry and sanctuary cities,” she says. “It’s not a kind of a focus on infrastructure, roads, schools.”Grieder says that even though moderates like House Speaker Joe Straus have been frozen out of the GOP, members of the party tell her they think a good year for Democrats would be helpful to Republicans who are less identified with the far-right.“For Democrats to gain a significant number of seats in the legislature or in Congress, will kind of be a wake up call to other Republicans. That they can’t keep doing this,” Grieder says.Grieder says even a single statewide Democratic win could energize the party and its voters toward further gains. She says Democrats have fielded large numbers of candidates for 2018, and she sees more enthusiasm on that side of the aisle.Written by Shelly Brisbin. Sharelast_img read more

Zika Study Finds High Miscarriage Rate In Infected Primates

first_imgTEXAS BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH INSTITUTEMarmosets are especially sensitive to the Zika virus during pregnancy.A new study has published alarming findings about the effect of the Zika virus on a pregnancy. More than a quarter of the pregnancies in primates infected with Zika in the first trimester resulted in miscarriages or stillbirths.Six national primate research centers collaborated on this study, published in the journal Nature Medicine. The Southwest National Primate Research Center in San Antonio was one of them. It is home to marmosets, a small monkey native to South America. Researchers at Texas Biomedical Research Institute have found that all marmosets infected with Zika early in their pregnancies lose those pregnancies.Those findings were added to pregnant primate research from other primate research centers, leading to the conclusion that 26-percent of primates infected with the Zika virus early in their pregnancies had miscarriages or stillbirths.Jean Patterson, Ph.D., is a scientist at Texas Biomed, and she says all of the research done to date is clear: Zika is bad for pregnancies. She says Zika is particularly devastating because it’s a relatively new virus.“When you have an emerging disease like Zika, you suddenly have a whole population exposed to it at once, instead of a population where you’re born. You’re exposed to the disease…you’re running around, you’re a toddler you don’t know you’re sick. Things are fine. It’s when an emerging disease hits a whole population — including pregnant women and seniors and young kids and the whole spectrum — that you suddenly discover there is one part of the population that’s more susceptible. And that’s exactly what happened with the Zika infections.”Patterson says the research discovered the pregnant primates — like humans — show few symptoms of infection and quickly recover. But the fetuses remained infected, leading to the miscarriages and stillbirths, or to a birth defect called microcephaly, a brain abnormality.Patterson says these findings will help scientists focus research on areas that could improve outcomes.There is currently no vaccine against Zika, but scientists are working on it. Patterson says they will explore whether it’s safe to give an eventual vaccine during pregnancy. They are also want to know if it would be safe to give pregnant women antiviral medication to treat their Zika infected fetuses.In the United States, Zika infections have been detected in Florida and Texas.Bonnie Petrie can be reached at Sharelast_img read more

Acupuncture to reduce excessive crying in babies

first_imgAcupuncture may have the potential to effectively reduce incidences of excessive crying in babies with infantile colic, researchers say.Infantile colic, also known as baby colic, is defined as episodes of crying for more than three hours a day, for more than three days a week, for three weeks in an otherwise healthy child.Excessive crying in babies is an issue for up to one in five families, causing pain for the baby and stress for the parents, the study said. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe findings showed that needling twice a week for a period of two weeks significantly reduced the crying time in babies.“For those infants that continue to cry for more than three hours each day, acupuncture may be an effective treatment option,” said Kajsa Landgren from Lund University in Sweden.Previous studies have associated acupuncture with relieving pain, restoring gut function as well as inducing calm.In the study, the team compared two types of acupuncture in 144 babies aged between two and eight weeks of age and randomly allocated each child to one of three groups (A-C). Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive Group A received standard minimal acupuncture at one acupuncture point, group B were given tailored acupuncture at a maximum of five acupuncture points and group C received no acupuncture.The results showed that the amount of time spent crying excessively fell in all three groups, which is not unexpected as colic tends to clear up by itself eventually.But the magnitude of this reduction was greater in those given either type of acupuncture than it was in those given standard care alone, suggesting that the babies tolerated the ancient method fairly well, the researchers said.“Fussing and crying are normal communications for a baby, therefore a reduction to normal levels (rather than silence) is the goal of treatment,” Landgren noted.The research was published in the journal Acupuncture in Medicine.last_img read more
