Tom Mulcair is having some difficulty remembering his own economic platform

Which tax bar Mulcair really intends to limbo under makes a huge differenceTom Mulcair is having a little trouble with numbers even as he attempts to reassure the business community that New Democrats would be prudent guardians of the public purse.The NDP leader told a Bay Street audience Tuesday that his child care plan “over the next 10 years will deliver one million, $15-a-day child care spaces across Canada.”[np_storybar title=”Michael Den Tandt: Mulcair is now a fiscal conservative and Trudeau, the rip-it-up reformer? ” link=””%5D It would be far easier for Canadians to keep track of their political parties, it struck me as I heard Justin Trudeau and then Tom Mulcair make their respective cases for forming government, if politicians stuck to colouring within the lines set for them by convention and tradition.Read on [/np_storybar] In fact, the NDP plan is to be rolled out over eight years.An aide said the 10-year reference was a “speech-writer error.”At an election-style partisan rally Wednesday evening, however, Mulcair boasted about his child care plan without attaching any time frame at all to it.Earlier Wednesday, Mulcair told CBC Radio’s “The Current” that the existing corporate tax rate is “about 12, 13 (per cent), something like that right now.”In fact, the corporate tax rate, which Mulcair has vowed to raise by an unspecified amount to pay for promises like his child care plan, is 15 per cent.Mulcair said later that he was referring to the difference between the combined federal-state corporate tax rate in the United States and the combined federal-provincial tax rate in Canada.The combined U.S. rate is 39 per cent, almost 13 percentage points higher than Canada’s combined rate of 26.3 per cent.Mulcair said he takes “responsibility for my lack of clarity” but then went on to muddy the corporate tax waters once again.“We’ve always said one thing,” he said outside the NDP’s weekly caucus meeting. “We want to make sure that the Canadian tax rate for our large corporations remains below the U.S. combined rate and we’re going to continue to work on that.”That is typical of the NDP. It does not know what the taxes are; it just knows everybody’s taxes have to be higherHe added: “It’ll be done incrementally. We’ll stay below the U.S. average.”But, in fact, Mulcair has not always said that one thing.Last September, Mulcair told Maclean’s magazine that Canada’s corporate tax rate has “dropped way below the OECD average, way below what the Americans are paying.”He said an NDP government would keep corporate taxes below the American rate and “we’ll also wind up below the OECD average. But we’re so far below both right now it doesn’t make any sense.”In fact, Canada’s tax rate is already slightly above the average 26 per cent imposed by the 34 countries that belong to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development.Since that interview, Mulcair hasn’t mentioned the OECD and has talked instead about bringing Canada’s corporate tax rate more in line with the average of G7 industrialized countries.“We’re way below the G7 average so those are our main trading partners, countries with economies similar to ours,” he told CTV’s “Canada AM” in January.The average corporate tax rate for G7 countries is 29.9 per cent, 3.6 percentage points higher than Canada’s.During his radio interview Wednesday, Mulcair said an NDP government would hike federal corporate taxes to “something in the 18 to 19 (per cent) range” — a three-to-four-point increase he said would bring Canada in line with the G7 average.But a few hours later outside his party’s caucus meeting, he didn’t mention the G7 at all and talked only about staying below the U.S. rate, which is the highest among all the OECD and G7 countries.Terence Corcoran: The bees are okay, the policy is sickMichael Den Tandt: Mulcair is now a fiscal conservative and Trudeau, the rip-it-up reformer?Tom Mulcair at Economic Club of Canada: ‘NDP governments are the best at balancing books’Which tax bar Mulcair really intends to limbo under makes a huge difference, since he’s relying on the promised corporate tax hike to rake in much of the revenue he’ll need to pay for child care and other pricey promises.Erin Weir, a labour economist running for the NDP in Saskatchewan, has estimated that each percentage point increase in the corporate tax rate would generate about $1.5 billion in revenue each year.However, other economists have warned that the move wouldn’t bring in as much money as the NDP thinks because corporations would simply shift income to other countries to avoid paying the extra taxes here.In the Commons, Prime Minister Stephen Harper needled Mulcair about his apparent confusion about corporate taxes.“When asked, ‘What is the tax rate exactly?’, he did not know and stated it was three points lower than it actually is,” Harper said in a raucous question period that featured repeated pointed jabs at Mulcair, the current darling of public opinion polls.“That is typical of the NDP. It does not know what the taxes are; it just knows everybody’s taxes have to be higher.”The jabs and closer scrutiny of all his remarks is the price Mulcair is now paying for the NDP’s recent front-runner status in the polls four months out from an election. At the evening rally, however, a clearly buoyant Mulcair and a pumped crowd of some 1,000 party faithful, weren’t dwelling on the downside of momentum.“Just like in Quebec in 2011 and in Alberta last month, people here, people in Canada’s capital region want change,” Mulcair declared.That change, he added, “is just an election away.”Joan Bryden is a columnist with The Canadian Press read more

On Africa Day Annan and UN Assembly president reflect on continents future

“The process of democratic consolidation continues to gain impetus, with many countries achieving successful transfers of power through open electoral processes,” Mr. Annan said in his message. “Implementation of the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) is gathering pace, with progress in several programmes, including the African Peer Review mechanism to which 25 countries have voluntarily subscribed.”2005 could well be a crucial year for Africa,” he said, pointing out that a UN summit in September will review the Millennium Declaration, with its goals (MDGs) to wipe out a massive amount of extremely negative socio-economic factors, especially in Africa, by 2015.”‘In Larger Freedom,’ the report that I have put before the UN membership, contains wide-ranging recommendations for helping Africans in their quest for security, development and human rights,” he said.Other reports and meetings offering opportunities to generate more international support for Africa’s development were the UN-commissioned Millennium Project and High-Level Panel on Threats, Challenges and Change report, the UK’s Commission for Africa report, the General Assembly’s financing for development meeting in June and the Group of Eight (G-8) most industrialized countries’ summit in July, Mr. Annan said.Reviewing a history of African solidarity in the struggle for independence from colonialism and apartheid, Mr. Ping said, “Not only is the number of conflicts on the continent diminishing but above all, economically Africa will soon represent a market of nearly 1 billion consumers, almost as big as China.”Through NEPAD, African leaders can look forward to better integration of African economies into the international system through economic and political good governance, he said, as he also enumerated the many opportunities available to the continent’s leaders this year.On the question of UN reform, he called on Africa “to play an active and dynamic role throughout this long and crucial year.””Africa can and must play its role in ushering a world that is more united, more prosperous, freer and more confident,” Mr. Ping added.At the same time, they both drew attention to the challenges lying ahead.Much of Africa, especially south of the Sahara, continued to suffer from the tragic effects of violent conflict, extreme poverty and disease, while in the Darfur region in western Sudan “attacks and displacements have continued and at least 2.6 million people are in urgent need of assistance,” Mr. Annan said.Too many countries were suffering from poverty and the high prevalence of disease, especially HIV/AIDS, while hard-won development gains were reversed and Africa lagged behind the rest of the developing world in achieving the MDGs, he said.Mr. Ping noted that Africa enjoyed only 2 per cent of international trade and its per capita income has declined 11 per cent in the last 25 years, while average per capita income in the rest of the world had increased 2 per cent per year. read more

Red hot nickel ball goes for the win over gelatin

first_imgWhat do you get when you take a ball of the metal nickel and add heat? Why, the one and only red hot nickel ball (RHNB).The way red hot metal interacts with various objects is often beyond our abilities to imagine without a handy visual aid, which is why RHNB videos on YouTube are so incredibly interesting. This time it’s gelatin getting the business end of some super-heated nickel.Jello is only marginally solid to begin with, so the application of large amounts of heat is bound to return it to its liquid state. Although, the way it goes down is a bit unexpected.The RHNB drops right through at first, burning a hole to the bottom of the container. Then the jello seems to be holding up rather well. It seems like the RHNB should have knocked the jiggly mass down immediately, right? When you think about the chemistry involved, it’s actually not as surprising as it seems.Gelatin is made from hydrolyzed collagen, an animal protein found in connective tissues. Heating gelatin while in solution causes it to form a large number of bonds. This is called a colloidal gel. Jello (or gelatin dessert, if you don’t want to infringe any trademarks) actually has a consistency similar to that of the original collagen. It’s not solid, but not liquid either. It takes time for the energy from the RHNB to break all those bonds, but it does.After a few seconds, the jello begins to fall apart, eventually becoming a soupy mess. RHNB wins again.last_img read more

Just how bad is vaping for you actually

first_img Tags 45 Juul and other e-cigarettes: What are the health risks? Once hailed as the healthier end-all to smoking traditional cigarettes, public officials are becoming increasingly more concerned about e-cigarettes, especially in youth populations. Juul in particular has sparked heated debate since its launch of sleek, small vapes and sweet-flavored nicotine cartridges in 2015.In fact, the World Health Organization actually singled out Juul in its latest report on the global tobacco epidemic (page 31, pdf), calling it one of the new industry players that “continue to subvert tobacco control” — so it’s no surprise that big cities are taking action and banning e-cigarette sales in an attempt to keep their residents healthy. So are the Juul and other e-cigs bad for you or not? The evidence remains inconclusive because, unlike traditional cigarettes, e-cigarettes haven’t been around long enough to make conclusive “x equals y” claims. However, there’s plenty of reason to believe that some of the same perils apply. Below, doctors weigh in on the most significant health risks. Read more: Is Juuling bad for your teeth? | How to quit Juul-ing, according to addiction experts JuulScientists don’t know everything about e-cigarettes yet, but they do know that many of the same perils associated with conventional cigarettes still apply. Eva Hambach / AFP/Getty Images Heart attack, stroke and coronary artery diseaseIn May 2019, the Stanford School of Medicine released a study showing that the e-liquids in Juuls and other e-cigarettes could increase a person’s risk of heart disease by damaging the endothelial cells that line the interior of blood vessels.When researchers exposed these cells to e-liquids, they began to show signs of dysfunction and disrepair, including DNA damage and cellular death. The scientists tested the endothelial cells by exposing them directly to e-liquid and blood collected from people who smoke e-cigarettes, and the damage occurred in both settings.The Stanford researchers used human endothelial cells that they grew from stem cells, an ideal method for studying cells that are hard to isolate from patients.”Until now, we had no data about how these e-liquids affect human endothelial cells,” said Joseph Wu, MD, PhD, director of the Stanford Cardiovascular Institute  in a statement. “This study clearly shows that e-cigarettes are not a safe alternative to traditional cigarettes.”The Juul vaping system in Washington, DC. The Washington Post / Getty Images Another recent study found that, compared to people who don’t use e-cigarettes, people who do are up to 56% more likely to have a heart attack and 30% more likely to have a stroke. “Even after adjusting for cardiovascular risk factors, the statistics are still significant,” Dr. Lawrence Weinstein, chief medical officer of American Addiction Centers, told CNET, “with e-cigarette users 34% more likely to have a heart attack and 25% more likely to develop coronary artery disease.”To get those numbers, the researchers controlled other known cardiovascular risk factors, such as age, sex, body mass index, high cholesterol, high blood pressure.SeizuresA possible link exists between e-cigarettes and seizures, Dr. Weinstein told CNET, explaining that “nicotine in abundance induces convulsive seizures by activating particular neurons in the amygdala, the part of the brain responsible for emotions, memory and survival instincts.”Dr. Weinstein brings this risk to attention because nicotine concentration might be misstated on some products: Researchers who studied this found that some e-liquids labeled as having a concentration of 18mg/mL contained as much as 52% more than stated. Some e-liquids also contained less nicotine than stated. This can be particularly problematic for children who come into contact with mislabeled e-liquids because they are more susceptible to nicotine poisoning, Dr. Weinstein said. Throughout 2019, the FDA has been investigating incidents in which people, especially teens and young adults, who vaped suffered a seizure. In April 2019, the FDA said in a statement that it has received “35 reported cases of seizures following use of e-cigarettes between 2010 and early 2019.” What’s even more troubling is that the FDA says that in some cases, “Seizures have been reported as occurring after a few puffs or up to one day after use.”As of August 7, 2019, the agency has now received 127 total reports of seizures and other neurological issues that followed using e-cigarettes. It is still investigating the link between the two.Reproductive healthIt’s well-known that smoking traditional cigarettes during pregnancy significantly increases the risk of premature delivery, low birth weight, stillbirth and birth defects. Dr. Rajy Abulhosn, medical review officer for Confirm BioSciences, told CNET that the use of e-cigarettes may present just as much risk due to the nicotine they contain. Furthermore, Dr. Abulhosn said that the US Surgeon General has shown that “babies born to mothers who used nicotine during pregnancy show long-lasting effects to both lung and brain development and function,” which means that someone’s use of e-cigarettes today can cause lasting health effects in the next generation. juul-and-podsMany e-cigarettes, including Juul devices, are small and easy to hide from authority figures, which is likely one reason they’ve become so popular. Psychological complications The same study that found e-cigarettes to increase the risk of heart attack by 55% also found that e-cigarette use may increase a person’s risk of depression by 50%. The research does not outright say that vaping causes depression, but it’s likely that people who vape are more likely to already have depression and use e-cigarettes as a coping mechanism. Similar relationships have been found between smoking regular cigarettes and depression.Young people are particularly at risk for psychological complications, because nicotine can alter the development of the prefrontal cortex, the part of the brain responsible for decision-making, personality expression and logic. The prefrontal cortex isn’t fully developed until around age 25, and using nicotine before then can increase a person’s risk of mood disorders, addiction and impaired impulse control.Neurological side effectsThere’s one other big concern when it comes to e-cigarettes and the brain: Research has found that a significant number of electronic nicotine devices generate vapor with potentially unsafe levels of manganese. Manganese is an essential mineral that you need to get from food, but when inhaled, manganese “is delivered directly to the brain and can lead to hallucinations,” Dr. Weinstein said. Chronic exposure to manganese can lead to manganese toxicity, a condition that develops silently over time and begins with nonspecific symptoms like headaches and fatigue. Over time, if manganese levels become high enough, toxicity can cause organ damage, hallucinations, difficulty concentrating, memory problems, and more. Researchers don’t know the actual threshold of manganese exposure at which these symptoms start to occur, but it’s always worth exercising caution. Vaping Can Result In Car CrashesThere’s still more research to do, but scientists and doctors have reason to believe that many of the chemicals in e-cigarettes can cause permanent damage through multiple pathways. Michal Fludra/NurPhoto via Getty Images Lung damageE-cigarettes don’t burn tobacco or leave tar on your lungs like regular cigarettes do, but the e-liquids and aerosols in vapes do contain a number of chemicals that still harm the lungs and respiratory system, Dr. Laren Tan, a pulmonologist at Loma Linda University told CNET. “A common misconception is that e-cigarettes are completely safe, since e-cigarettes do not appear to have the classic look, feel or smell,” said Dr. Tan, “[but] the intentional inhalation of particulates can still be harmful, especially in those with chronic respiratory diseases like asthma and COPD.”Dr. Weinstein points one of those harmful compounds out as chromium. Also found in regular cigarettes, chromium appears to be present in e-cigarette emissions, and chronic inhalation of it has been shown to induce asthma, decrease lung function and cause cancer of the respiratory system.  The verdictScientists and medical professionals won’t know for sure what kind of health complications are posed by e-cigarette use until e-cigarettes have been around long enough to establish causal relationships. For now, they can only look to the similarities between traditional cigarettes and e-cigarettes and continue to accumulate new evidence — but with so many potential health risks, it’s worth paying attention to what health professionals are saying. The information contained in this article is for educational and informational purposes only and is not intended as health or medical advice.

The Texas Department of Health and Human Services manages the Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.Applications for assistance will be taken for three additional days, starting Wednesday October 18, at Alexander Deussen Park‘s Senior Center at 12303 Sonnier Street in Houston. The site will be open Wednesday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.D-SNAP is available to eligible people who are residents of one of the counties with a federal disaster declaration and weren’t receiving benefits through regular SNAP at the time of the disaster. Recipients will be given a Lone Star Card that will be loaded within three days with funds to purchase food from most grocery stores. Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee said she contacted the USDA to get the extension. “We are seeing people still in need,” she said over the weekend. “The sun is shining, but there are people still trying to recover.”D-SNAP is typically offered for up to seven days in a community. In Harris County, D-SNAP will have been offered a total of 18-days when the program closes on Friday. According to preliminary numbers, more than 932,000 people have already been served in Harris County. No additional extensions or phases of D-SNAP are being announced at this time.Applicants are encouraged by the Health and Human Services to expect long lines. Applicants must be in line by 7:00 p.m. Not all individuals in line at 7:00 p.m. will necessarily be served.last_img read more

Unrealistic Rate Expectations Threaten Housing Recovery

first_img December 12, 2013 449 Views Despite a reported rise in homebuyer confidence in the third quarter–the first this year–unrealistic mortgage rate expectations could lead the housing recovery astray as the Federal Reserve looks to ease its stimulus program, according to recent reports from “”Redfin,””: a national real estate broker and technology provider. [IMAGE]Twenty-eight percent of homebuyers said now is a good time to buy a home, up 4 percentage points from last quarter, according to “”Redfin’s Real-Time Buyer Survey””: conducted in November. Another 58 percent of buyers said now is an “”ok”” time to purchase a home, down just 1 percentage point from last quarter’s 59 percent, according to Redfin. Low inventory remained a top concern with 60 percent of survey respondents citing this concern. Rising prices was also a popular concern, cited among 52 percent of survey respondents. Rising mortgage rates popped up as a concern among 53 percent of survey respondents in last quarter’s survey and then dropped to 41 percent this quarter. However, Redfin finds consumer attitudes toward interest rates quite troublesome. A majority–83 percent–of [COLUMN_BREAK]buyers believe a “”normal”” interest rate for a fixed-rate, 30-year mortgage loan is less than 5 percent. Furthermore, a significant portion of homebuyers–42 percent–say they “”would be unable or unwilling to buy a home if rates rose further.”” In contrast to what today’s consumers view as “”normal,”” the average mortgage rate since 1990 is 6.7 percent, according to Redfin. In fact, rates did not fall below 5 percent until March 2009. However, only 5 percent of homebuyers view a mortgage rate above 6 percent as “”normal,”” according to Redfin’s survey results. “”Even more surprising, both seasoned and first-time buyers think a rate below 5 percent is normal,”” “”Redfin said.””: One in three first-time buyers view a rate below 4 percent as normal, while one in four seasoned buyers view a rate below 4 percent as normal. While the market awaits news on when the Fed will taper its stimulus program, thus allowing mortgage rates to rise, Redfin says this summer’s activity is a good preview of what may come. “”Two weeks after mortgage rates spiked about 1 percentage point in June, the number of Redfin customers taking tours and signing offers dropped 14 percent and 12 percent, respectively,”” Redfin said. Redfin argues the time to taper the stimulus and allow rates to begin to rise is now, during the slow homebuying season. Doing so would allow consumers to adjust to the new rates and prepare before the market enters the spring buying season. By the time spring comes, the hope is that buyers will have adjusted their expectations and may be ready to purchase.

One Banana is also a member of The World Banana Forum and The Sustainability Consortium.The firm operates a Living Wage programme across all of its production countries and claims to be the first company in Guatemala to research what workers actually need to earn in order to provide their families with food security and a healthy, active life.To help reduce child malnutrition and improve academic performance in the areas where it produces bananas in Guatemala, One Banana also runs a Happy Families programme and a Nutritious School Snacks scheme. In Guatemala, One Banana has built a community facility in partnership with the University of Colorado in the U.S.A — called the Human Development Centre — that features a private school, medical clinic and birthing centre for employees, their families and communities.Thanks to the success of these and other efforts, the company says it has helped more than 60,000 people in 60 different communities across Guatemala and Ecuador, as well as its 8,000 employees and their families.At a production level, One Banana also implements water efficiency and waste management schemes across its multiple growing regions, having adopted cutting-edge irrigation technology and environmentally friendly banana growing materials.“Our family farms are all certified to the highest and best-known third party certifications, such as Rainforest Alliance, GlobalGAP and SCS Sustainably Grown,” Adams adds.To ensure its high standards are maintained, One Banana provides an Ethics Hotline — a secure and confidential portal provided by external party Etictel — through which any concerns of unethical behaviour can be reported either by phone or through the website.Recognition from TescoOn the back of these efforts, last year Tesco in the U.K. awarded One Banana the prestigious accolade of ‘Grower of the Year 2018’ as part of the retailer’s annual recognition of its top suppliers and growers.The award credited One Banana for its best performance during 2018, in terms of product delivery, quality standards, food safety, certifications, and good manufacturing practices, which, in turn, helped Tesco to deliver on its promise to customers to supply and sell only the highest-quality bananas.“We are very proud of this recognition, and we remain committed to continue offering a product that meets high quality standards, while retaining competitiveness, promoting sustainable production and being a benchmark in the agro-industry,” says Adams. One Banana historyOne Banana originally started out as Agroamerica in 1958, only adopting its current name in 2014. At first, the firm grew a variety of crops in Guatemala, before dedicating to banana production and exports in 1976. Later, the firm entered Costa Rica and the pineapple trade in 2001. Having grown its banana business formore than 25 years, One Banana subsequently expanded to Ecuador, Peru and Panama, and now produces organic bananas in Ecuador and Peru too.To gain more visibility as it strives to secure more business in the U.K., One Banana is exhibiting at The London Produce Show and Conference for the first time on 5-7 June 2019. To attend the event, register here. You might also be interested in From the pages of Produce Business UKU.S.-headquartered tropical fruit grower-distributor One Banana is seeking to expand its share of the banana market in the U.K., where consumer appreciation for socially responsible and environmentally sustainable, high-quality fresh food resonates with the company’s year-round offer. Speaking from his New York office, the firm’s president, Robert Adams, enlightens PBUK. on why One Banana, an exhibitor at The London Produce Show and Conference in June, stands out in a crowded marketplace dominated by major multinational banana corporations.People first“The U.K. is a market where our story seems to resonate well,” Adams tells PBUK.. “We are a third-generation, family-owned, sustainable producer and distributor of bananas. The U.K. is a unique market that values a connection with the farm and where their food comes from. The U.K. also sets a high standard for quality, which coincides with our standards.”Committed to the environment, its workers, their families and communities, One Banana is on a mission to be a better banana company that puts people first and makes a positive difference in society, hence its full name: ‘One Banana, The Better Banana Company.’ In a market dominated by global banana corporations, Adams believes this is what makes family-run One Banana stand out from the crowd, as it seeks to create change for the better — one banana, one person at a time.“We have a deep commitment to the planet and the people in the communities where we do business,” explains Adams. “People are paramount to everything we do, say and believe. Generation after generation, we can honestly say that we are different in terms of how we grow our bananas, how we treat our people, and how we maintain, cultivate and protect the lands we own and harvest.”At One Banana, Adams says the belief is that ‘One Banana Makes a Difference’; thereby explaining the meaning behind the company’s name.“One banana can make a difference to consumers’ health, and we believe that by purchasing from One Banana, you also make a difference to the environment and to the communities where we grow our fruit,” he comments. “We truly believe that One Banana makes a difference.” Annually, the firm produces more than 22 million boxes of Rainforest Alliance-certified conventional and organic bananas. All of the fruit is grown on the company’s own farms located across 7,500 hectares in Guatemala, Ecuador and Peru; providing what Adams describes as “the highest quality and sustainably sourced bananas.” U.K. goal Over the past two decades, the business has developed by selling under its own brand (One Banana) as well as retailers’ private labels in the United States and around the world, including Germany, Japan, China and Poland. One Banana is eager to expand its presence in the U.K., where, at the moment, it sells fruit to Tesco, the country’s leading supermarket operator. “We do sell to the U.K., and we want to do more business there, as well,” Adams reveals. “We have identified the U.K. market as one that values high-quality, sustainably sourced fruit.”Currently, One Banana supplies the U.K. with its bananas grown in Guatemala and Ecuador. Adams also says the company can supply organic fruit from its farms in Peru. “We have the ability to expand in the U.K., and we are eager to do so,” he states.Setting its goals high, One Banana is seeking to grow its presence with U.K. retailers initially, but Adams says the company is open to other segments of the market as well, potentially the wholesale and/or foodservice sectors.And when it comes to successfully increasing its U.K.-bound supply, Adams says One Banana is already well-prepared following years of experience.“We have done business in the U.K. for many years, and we have a very strong and well-tested supply chain to deliver to the U.K.,” he explains, adding that the team is closely monitoring the situation surrounding Brexit too.center_img March 27 , 2019 Ecuador’s banana exports to EU fall in Q1 … China imports record banana volume … last_img read more
