Cenovus says Alberta production curtailments are working, reports Q1 profit

CALGARY — Cenovus Energy Inc. reported a profit of $110 million in its first quarter compared with a loss a year ago as it benefited from improved prices for western Canadian oil.The company says the improvement in prices for western Canadian oil due to the Alberta government’s curtailment program more than offset the impact of reduced production and increased operating costs during the first quarter.Cenovus says its profit amounted to nine cents per share for the three months ended March 31, compared with a loss of $654 million or 53 cents per share a year ago.Gross sales totalled nearly $5.2 billion, up from $4.7 billion in the same quarter last year.Cenovus reported first-quarter oil sands production of 342,980 barrels per day, down five per cent compared with a year ago, while operating costs rose to $9.06 per barrel compared with $8.78 a year ago.Production from the company’s Deep Basin assets averaged 104,290 barrels of oil equivalent per day, down 18 per cent from a year ago due to the sale of its Pipestone business, lower capital investment, natural declines and weather-related outages.

Closing Bell Stock markets sell off US manufacturing data adds to global

TORONTO — North American markets entered the fourth quarter Wednesday deep in the red, adding to losses from September as weaker than expected American manufacturing data fuelled concerns about a faltering global economy.Here are the closing numbersTSX — 14,805.44 -155.07 -1.04%S&P 500 —  1,946.16 -26.13  -1.32%Dow — 16,804.71 -238.19 -1.40%Nasdaq — 4,422.08 -71.31 -1.59%The S&P/TSX composite index dropped 155.07 points to 14,805.44 after racking up a 4.25% loss with traders also nervous about the pace of future U.S. interest rate hikes.New York markets also sold off and the Dow Jones industrials plunged 238.19 points to 16,804.71 as the Institute for Supply Management’s manufacturing index came in at 56.6, down from 59 in August and much weaker than the 58 reading that economists had expected. It also added to weak manufacturing reports in recent days from China and Europe.“It’s been sort of a two-speed world — there’s been the U.S. data which has been pretty good, you can’t really complain, and then everywhere else has been a lot weaker,” said Michael Greenberg, co-lead manager of Franklin Quotential Portfolios.The Nasdaq fell 71.3 points to 4,422.09 and the S&P 500 index was down 26.13 points to 1,946.16.The Canadian dollar was up 0.22 of a cent to 89.51 cents US as the greenback weakened following the mid-morning release of the manufacturing data.Greenberg added that investors will soon be turning their attention to third-quarter corporate earnings which could be hurt by weak overseas performance.“It will be interesting to watch earnings, especially the bigger multinationals because the home market has been pretty good, but some of these, we’re a bit worried about earnings because of foreign exposures.”Markets failed to benefit from a positive look at health of the American job market two days before the release of the U.S. government’s employment report. Payroll firm ADP said that the American private sector created 213,000 jobs last month, in line with expectations.Economists are expecting the U.S. Labor Department to report Friday that 215,000 jobs were added in September.Investors also focused on shares of companies testing Ebola vaccines after the first U.S. case of the disease was diagnosed in Texas.Burnaby, B.C.-based drug company Tekmira Pharmaceuticals (TSX:TKM) (Nasdaq:TKMR) was a major advancer. Its stock jumped 18% to US$24.95 in New York. In August, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration told Tekmira it would allow use of its investigational drug TKM-Ebola in patients with the virus.Most TSX sectors were lower with declines led by a 2.1% drop in the industrials group. Airline stocks fell as investors worry the Ebola scare will drive passengers away. Air Canada (TSX:AC.B) shed 39 cents or 4.55% to C$8.16. Elsewhere in the segment, shares in Westport Innovations (TSX:WPT) plunged almost 25% to $8.84 after the natural gas engine firm cut its revenue guidance for 2014.The energy sector gave back 2.1% as November crude in New York erased early strong gains to decline 43 cents to US$90.73 a barrel. Prices have fallen sharply lately to two-year lows amid falling demand and plentiful supplies.The base metals group was 1.3% lower as December copper edged up two cents to US$3.02 a pound.The gold sector edged slightly higher while December gold gained $3.90 to US$1,215.5 an ounce.TOP STORIESHousing bubble will force Bank of Canada to renew rate hike warnings soon, Pimco saysCapital One ups ante with new credit card just for Costco customers — no-limit rewardsFord to hire 1,000 workers in Oakville in rare sign of growth in Canada’s auto industryFormer SNC-Lavalin executive Riadh Ben Aissa pleads guilty to corruption charges$1-billion Canadian coal mine was just sold for a buck amid plunging demand and pricesBlackBerry names cyber security expert to board in bid to boost reputationAmerican Apparel open to keeping Charney after hedge fund ousts most of his critics, sources sayWHAT’S ON DECK THURSDAYECONOMIC NEWSUNITED STATES7:30 a.m. Challenger Layoff report (Sept)8:30 a.m. Weekly jobless claims: Economists expect 297,000 new claims10 a.m. Factory orders (Aug): Economists expect a decline of 9.5%CORPORATE NEWSUNITED STATES Constellation Brands Inc Q2 earnings: Analysts expect  US$1.16  a share read more

Chief of UN mission for DR of Congo calls on Rwandan President

William Lacy Swing, chief of the UN Organization Mission (MONUC) and Secretary General Kofi Annan’s Special Representative for the DRC, told Mr. Kagame his visit was to continue to encourage the present rapprochement between the DRC and its neighbours – Burundi, Rwanda and Uganda, according to a news release from the Mission.Mr. Kagame said the visit last month of his Foreign Minister, Charles Murigande, to the DRC capital, Kinshasa, was aimed at supporting the DRC’s transition and he was open to any appropriate initiative to improve bilateral relations.Earlier, Mr. Swing met the new Prosecutor of the UN International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR), Hassan Bubacar Jallow, for talks on intensifying cooperation between MONUC and the court, based in Arusha, Tanzania.He also met those members of Mr. Kagame’s government who are handling peace process-related issues with the DRC, representatives of UN specialized agencies in Kigali and some members of the diplomatic corps accredited to Rwanda. read more

Dangerous conditions in Ukraine after heavy fighting shuts down power water –

Intense fighting in the town of Avdiivka on 29 and 30 January disabled electricity and water, including the Donetsk Filtration Station and the backup reservoir. With temperatures plummeting to 1 degree Fahrenheit (minus 17 degrees Celsius), the situation could have “catastrophic consequences for the residents of Avdiivka,” according to a statement from UNICEF.The UN agency’s representative in Ukraine also voiced concern about the fighting, which has also caused six schools and four kindergartens in the area to shut down. “Not only are the lives of thousands of children in Avdiivka, and on all sides of the conflict, at risk, but to make matters worse, the lack of water and electricity means that homes are becoming dangerously cold and health conditions deteriorating as we speak,” said Giovanna Barberis.In addition to the 17,000 residents in Avdiivka, the non-functional filtration station supplied some 400,000 people in area with water. “Water is now rationed and there is a possibility that the piped household water supply will stop altogether,” UNICEF said. The UN Security Council has also voiced concern about the fresh fighting. On 31 January, the Council issued a press statement saying its 15 members were gravely concerned about the situation in the country’s eastern region and its severe impact on the local civilian population. read more

Trump denies directing lawyer to break law

United States (US) President Donald TrumpWASHINGTON, United States (AFP)— Donald Trump on Thursday denied directing his ex-lawyer Michael Cohen to break the law after the US president’s longtime close ally was sentenced to three years for campaign finance violations and other crimes.“I never directed Michael Cohen to break the law. He was a lawyer and he is supposed to know the law,” Trump tweeted.“It is called ‘advice of counsel,’ and a lawyer has great liability if a mistake is made. That is why they get paid.”Cohen, 52, apologised Wednesday for covering up the “dirty deeds” of his ex-boss as he was handed jail time for multiple crimes including hush money payments implicating Trump.Pleading for leniency in a packed Manhattan courtroom before US District Court Judge William H Pauley III, Cohen said he had been led astray by misplaced admiration for Trump.An emotional Cohen told the court he accepted responsibility for his personal crimes and “those involving the President of the United States of America.”In his first public comments since Cohen’s sentencing, Trump said on Twitter that legal experts had cleared him of any wrongdoing and repeated his denial that he had broken campaign finance laws, arguing that Cohen’s crimes did not involve campaign finance.“Cohen was guilty on many charges unrelated to me, but he plead to two campaign charges which were not criminal and of which he probably was not guilty even on a civil bases,” Trump tweeted.“Those charges were just agreed to by him in order to embarrass the president and get a much reduced prison sentence, which he did-including the fact that his family was temporarily let off the hook. As a lawyer, Michael has great liability to me!”Cohen admitted charges brought by federal prosecutors in New York of tax evasion, providing false statements to a bank and illegal campaign contributions.Cohen also pleaded guilty to making false statements to Congress — a charge stemming from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into whether Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign colluded with Russia to get him elected.Among the charges against Cohen was making secret payments to silence two women threatening to go public during the election campaign with claims they had affairs with Trump.

How Angry Birds Infinity Blade and other top games will look on

first_imgAs we continue to build up to next week’s iPad 3 event, you might have a hankering for a taste of that Retina display. We know it’s going to look terrific, but it’s difficult to imagine what a higher-resolution display will look like until you actually see it.That will have to wait for Wednesday, but, in the meantime, we’re going to prepare you with some mocked-up comparison shots. We already gave you a preview of what the Retina display might look like on the next iPad. But what about some of the most popular games? Let’s take a look…Angry BirdsWhen you zoom in close enough, Angry Birds on the iPad 2 (and original iPad) looks quite pixelated. Contrast this with the simulated shot on the right, which shows how it might look on that 2048×1536 Retina display.Infinity BladeThough Infinity Blade has been heralded for its console-esque graphics, an extreme closeup reveals how much better it will look in higher resolution. Once the developers update the game for the new iPad, you can expect to see something like the shot on the right.Plants vs. ZombiesYou can expect to see crystal-clear pea shooters and cob cannons after Plants vs. Zombies is updated for the Retina Display iPad.Grand Theft Auto IIIYou’ll be able to determine the caliber of bullets and read the badge numbers of pursuing officers when Rockstar updates GTA III for the iPad 3 (okay, maybe not).Seeing is believingOf course these are just Photoshopped simulations of tiny sections of the screen. The real amazement will come when your eyes take in an entire display filled with visuals that are this sharp.Another great way to get a sense of what the Retina Display will look like is to take an iPhone 4 or 4S, and hold it as far away from you as you’d hold an iPad (probably farther than you’d hold a phone). Now imagine that display growing to 9.7-inches. The iPhone’s pixel density is actually a bit higher than what we’ll see on the iPad, but we’re confident that your eyes won’t be the least bit disappointed.last_img read more

Free demande le report de lattribution des licences 4G

Ainsi, Xavier Niel, le patron de Free, s’en est inquiété à travers une lettre envoyée au ministre de l’Industrie, Eric Besson, que Les Echos ont pu se procurer. Il y exprime ainsi la crainte “d’assister à une préemption du spectre par les opérateurs les plus riches”.À lire aussiLa dernière mise à jour de la Freebox Revolution bloque les publicités sur InternetSelon lui, “le développement de la concurrence, troisième objectif fixé par le gouvernement, est peu pris en compte”, les enchères permettant à un seul opérateur d’acquérir jusqu’à 60% du spectre des fréquences. Une crainte déjà exprimée le mois dernier par Martin Bouygues, le patron de Bouygues Telecom, qui expliquait que le vainqueur risquait d’être “Orange, qui est plus riche que les autres”, relaye 20 Minutes.

Teens Tackle Human Trafficking In Houston

first_img To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Listen Photo via PexelsAs 30,000 teens from around the country gather at NRG Park for a Lutheran youth gathering this week, many are learning about the realities of an ugly business. Houston is widely considered to be a hub for human trafficking. Through a partnership with United Against Human Trafficking youth are putting together hygiene kits that will be distributed to vulnerable populations and attending awareness workshops. Kaylen Runyan, Lead Outreach and Education Specialist for United Against Human Trafficking, said it’s critical to educate middle and high school students about this issue because they are inherently more vulnerable to being trafficked.   Share “This is the age where self-esteem and self-identity is really crucial and traffickers capitalize that,” said Runyan.“Whenever they see a vulnerability like low self-esteem, they kind of pounce on that because they know that that’s someone that they can mold,” she said. A 2016 University of Texas report estimates over 300,000 Texans are currently being trafficked, including 79,000 youth victims of sex trafficking.The advocacy group Children At Risk published a map earlier this year, which shows that many suspected illegal massage parlors are located in close proximity to Texas schools. center_img 00:00 /00:54 X last_img read more

Govt plans to set up Bengals first geriatric hospital in Salt Lake

first_imgKolkata: The Bengal government is contemplating to set up the state’s first geriatric hospital in Salt Lake to provide comprehensive care exclusively for the elderly people and also to understand their medical background and offer them customised care.There is a demand of such a hospital in the state, as the number of elderly people living alone is on the rise. The state Health department will be the nodal agency to carry out the project.The proposal to set up a geriatric hospital in the city, however, is in the initial stage. A study will be carried out to examine the viability of set- Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedting up such a hospital in Salt Lake.According to a senior official of the Health department, there is a plan to set up the geriatric hospital in the city, where the elderly people from across the state can get special care.The patients would be able to avail personal attention, however, it would be too early to divulge the detailed plans in this regard.A specialised geriatric care centre would be set up at the proposed hospital, where proficient geriatricians and allied medical professionals will provide comprehensive geriatric assessment to address all-round needs of a patient and recommend the best treatment for them. Also Read – Naihati: 10 councillors return to TMC from BJPThere are not enough doctors who are willing to visit these elderly patients at home. It has been found that many elderly people have been living in residential apartments alone in the city. They often become too feeble to visit a doctor’s chamber in the locality.Many of them are found to have been deserted by their sons or daughters who have settled outside the state or abroad, with no one to look after their parents.According to sources, the main focus areas of the proposed hospital would be preventing and managing fractures, dizziness, memory loss, depression, psycholo-gical revitalisation, vacci-nations, fatigue, unsteadiness or weakness, physiotherapy, diet counselling and medicine management.As a part of geriatric health care, the patients would be informed about the preventive health care services such as regular physical exercise, balanced diet, vegetarianism, stress management, avoidance of smoking or tobacco products and prevention of falls.The country has been facing a specific demographic challenge, as the population over the age of 65 is expected to soar up to 20 percent by 2050. This requires both the state government and Centre to have a holistic approach towards the health needs of the elderly people, feel a senior state government official.It may be mentioned here that after coming to power, the Mamata Banerjee government has taken up a series of newinitiatives to help elderly citizens.A comprehensive geriatric care unit, an exclusive centre for the elderly, has come up at the district hospitals to address the problems faced by elderly people.The elderly people often suffer from more than one medical problem. They need a special environment and attention that can help them improve their functional ability, physical health, cognition and mental health.last_img read more

This year a Carestream DRX Core detector is being used with the existing X-ray system at Lucas Oil Stadium (Indianapolis) to produce high-quality diagnostic images in seconds.A Carestream DRX detector has delivered rapid image access at the NFL Combine for seven consecutive years with Carestream DRX-Ascend and Carestream Q-Rad X-ray systems. The company’s DRX detector converts existing X-ray rooms and mobile units to the speed and convenience of full digital X-ray imaging in less than four hours, according to Carestream.Additional imaging exams to evaluate athletes’ health were conducted at Indiana University Health Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. NFL coaches, general managers and scouts who are preparing to draft new players evaluated more than 300 top prospects at the annual combine.Multiple NFL teams — and other sports organizations worldwide — are using Carestream’s advanced digital medical imaging systems to diagnose and treat player injuries. The newest addition to Carestream’s growing portfolio is a cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging system that produces medical images for use in diagnosing conditions and injuries for professional athletes and recreational sports enthusiasts.The Carestream OnSight 3D Extremity System enables sports medicine and orthopaedic specialists to capture 3-D and weight-bearing images of hands, wrists, elbows, knees, feet and ankles, which provide important diagnostic information that is not available from traditional CT systems and other types of patient extremity exams.For more information: www.carestream.comlast_img read more

Tiger operating statistics show growth

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: M.H Calm before the storm … Tiger Airways carried 555,000 passengers in June 2011 6.2 million people flew with Tiger Airways from July 2010 to June 2011, an increase of 18 per cent on the year before, the carrier announced from Singapore.According to the airline’s June operating statistics, load factor across Asia and Australia over the past twelve months also rose, albeit by one per cent to 86 per cent. Acting Tiger Airways Holdings chief executive Chin Yau Seng said growth in passenger numbers remained “robust” for its services to and from Singapore in June, reflected by the carrier’s 9 per cent increase compared to June 2010. “However, Tiger Airways Australia’s passenger numbers were impacted by the significant disruption to Australian domestic air travel due to volcanic ash from Chile’s Puyehue-Cordon Caulle volcano,” Mr Chin said, also acknowledging the suspension of the group’s Australian subsidiary until August.“Tiger Airways Australia continues to work with the industry regulator to resolve the issues and resume flights as soon as possible.”Furthermore, the acting boss announced the addition of two new routes to the Tiger Airways Singapore network. “From September 2011, Tiger Airways Singapore will introduce services between Singapore and Cebu, and from October 2011 will reintroduce services between Singapore and Bangalore following an 11- month absence,” Mr Chin said.last_img read more
