In short order, Netflix’s promised $500-million investment has exposed a culture clash in the country’s creative community.“It’s unfortunate that the government doesn’t hold all broadcasters and distributors to the same rules when they are working in Canada,” said David Sparrow, national president of the Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists, which represents 23,000 people working in film, television and digital media. Mélanie Joly, Minister of Canadian Heritage, speaks with media after her discussion at the VIFF Industry Exchange Day in Vancouver on Thursday. Ms. Joly has been travelling the country for more than a week promoting the federal government’s deal with Netflix. Although it falls under the Investment Canada Act, Ms. Joly signed it because it is related to the cultural sector. Facebook Advertisement Advertisement Twitter
New Delhi: Tax offices, for both income tax (I-T) and GST, will remain open on Sunday as the departments race against time to meet the revenue collection targets. “As per past practice, all field offices of CBIC (Central Board of Indirect Taxes and Customs) will remain open during the last weekend of the current financial year also on March 31, 2019, for assisting the taxpayers in all matters,” CBIC said in an office memorandum.In an office order, the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) asked its field offices to facilitate filing of tax-returns by the taxpayers by opening additional receipt counters, wherever required, on 31. “The last date for filing belated/ revised tax-returns for assessment year 2018-19 is March 31, 2019.” “The financial year 2018-19 also closes on (March) 31. In view of the closed holidays March 30 and 31, being Saturday and Sunday, I-T offices throughout India (including the ASK Centres), shall remain open on March 30 and 31 during normal office hours,” the CBDT said.
The outcome was a departure from the Commission’s usual practice of completing consideration of two items in three years, with the consensus adoption of guidelines and recommendations.The Commission, whose membership is universal, is a deliberative body mandated to make recommendations in the field of disarmament and to follow up the decisions and recommendations of the UN General Assembly’s first special session devoted to disarmament, in 1978.It focuses on a limited number of agenda items each session to allow for in-depth discussion. At its latest session, which ended last Thursday, it considered two items: ways and means to achieve nuclear disarmament, in working group I; and practical confidence-building measures in the field of conventional arms, in working group II.Working group II Chairman Mario Maiolini of Italy said the unsatisfactory conclusion should draw attention to the reasons why consensus had been elusive. Progress had been made, he added, but it had not been possible to draw positive conclusions. Members should ask themselves why, despite the call to advance the proposals, that had not been possible.
October brings falling leaves, great postseason pitching and hitting, and painfully long baseball games. Look no further than Game 2 of the World Series: On the game’s biggest national stage, the Cubs and Indians played a 5-1 game Wednesday night that took four hours and four minutes to complete. Interminable games like Wednesday’s contest are the norm for the MLB postseason — but even by that standard, this year has been by far the slowest in recent memory.Baseball usually reserves its longest games for October, with the average game length jumping precipitously in the final month of each of the past five seasons. But even keeping that in mind, this year has been extraordinary: The last 27 games have featured an average game length of three hours and 24 minutes, the highest average for any continuous block of 27 games in the past five years (and far above the overall 2016 season average of three hours, two minutes). The only block of games that even comes close to the one we’re in now came in 2014 — and 2014 was before baseball commissioner Rob Manfred announced new rules designed to speed up the games. That this year’s games are surpassing the heights of 2014 even with those pace-of-play rules in place is extraordinary.There are a number of contributors to baseball’s recent sluggishness, including instant replay reviews, reliever usage and pitcher pace. Managers are using replay-review challenges more aggressively in the postseason, averaging more than one per game, in comparison with the regular season average of 0.6 per game. Replay challenges take about 96 seconds each1According to data from Retrosheet on regular-season replay challenges., so the additional challenges are probably only adding a little less than a minute to the bloated postseason average.Reliever usage is probably a larger factor. As I documented in a recent piece, managers are asking more relievers to chew up a greater fraction of the innings this postseason than ever before. So far this postseason, there have been 4.06 relief appearances per game, compared with a regular season average of 3.14 per game. Each pitching change can take up to two minutes and 30 seconds, so pitcher usage accounts for another two- to three-minute chunk of the sluggish pace.Relievers themselves also slow the pace of the game. Relief pitchers take much more time between pitches — about 1.7 seconds more per throw — than starters do. Combine that leisurely tempo with the fact that relievers are being used more so far this postseason — about 14 more pitches are thrown by the bullpen per game — and we’ve accounted for another 25 or so extra seconds per game.Speaking of slow pitching pace, by far the worst offender this year was the Los Angeles Dodgers’ bullpen. At 25.9 seconds per pitch, Dodgers relievers were 0.3 seconds slower between pitches than the second-place team (the Boston Red Sox, who also made it to the playoffs), 3.3 seconds slower — per pitch, mind you! — than their NLCS opponent, the Cubs, and 2.2 seconds slower than the AL champion Indians.2A significant fraction of that was probably due to L.A. middle reliever Pedro Baez, whose astounding 30.2 seconds per pitch pace was highest in the league. Fans and announcers complain about replay challenges and pitching changes, but combined they probably have less impact on game length than specific teams (like the Dodgers) do.So after the Cubs advanced over L.A. in the NLCS, it was fair to think that the strongest influence on this postseason’s slow games was out of the race, and that we might see snappier baseball in the World Series as a result. But despite the Cubs and Indians being two relatively fast-paced teams, the World Series has featured two of the longest games of the postseason, each with relatively little offense and only nine innings. There’s a big chunk of this postseason slowdown that doesn’t seem to be due to relievers, or replay, or pace. Maybe it’s the drama of the moment or the potential to break a title drought, but baseball games now take longer than at any point in recent memory.
Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, January 23, 2018 – Nassau – Preliminary estimates indicate that more than 13,000 cubic yards of debris was removed from the Bain and Grants Town community during the first two days of the Over-the-Hill Clean-up and Bulk Waste Removal Campaign. The campaign began on Friday and ramped up its operation on Saturday. Some of the work had to be completed on Sunday.Officials from the Economic Development and Planning Unit of the Office of the Prime Minister, the Department of Environmental Health Services and The Bahamas Public Parks and Public Beaches Authority – who combined their resources and assets to make the campaign happen — say the figure equates to the size of six full-length football fields.“So far everyone has done an excellent job in making Phase One of this initiative a success,” Dr. Nicola Virgill-Rolle, Director of the Economic Development and Planning Unit of the Office of the Prime Minister said.“Want to thank everybody who have been out here working – DEHS, Beaches and Parks Authority, all of the workers from the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) who have really been executing a tremendous work in executing the first phase of this cleanup.“The cooperation from residents has been outstanding. Community cooperation/effort has been amazing. The residents got notification of this exercise well ahead of time, there was good communication around it, and so residents were well-prepared, they put their waste out as instructed and our facilitators were able to come by with the trucks and manual labour to take the debris out.”Dr. Rolle praised the partnership between the three government agencies/departments. The bulk waste removal and management of the heavy equipment used was done through the Department of Environmental Health Services while employees of The Bahamas Public Beaches and Public Parks Authority took care of the manual work.“The work over this first phase entailed cleaning down lots, bulk waste removal such as the removal of stoves, refrigerators, etcetera,” Dr. Virgill-Rolle said. “ We have also been removing derelict vehicles as well. Where persons have given permission to remove vehicles, they have been taken out of area as well.”Mr. Kemi Jones, Project Manager for the Over-the-Hill Community Development Partnership Initiative of which the Clean-up and Bulk Waste Removal Campaign is but one pillar, said the focus of Phase One of the Clean-up focused on the areas north of Meadow Street, and north of Ross and Gibbs Corners. Officials will focus on the areas next weekend going back to areas south of Meadow Street and Ross and Gibbs Corners, as far south as Wulff Road and Poinciana Drive the weekend of January 26-28 during Phase Two.“It’s a massive area, but we are working hard and doing our best to impact as many lives as possible and get it done correctly, “Mr. Jones said. “One of the six pillars of the Over-the- Hill Community Development Partnership Initiative talks about rejuvenation, so this cleanup effort is focusing specifically on getting the trash, bulk waste and derelict vehicles out of the area and then once we have done that, in February residents will witness the launch of our painting programme where we are actually trying to put a new face on the entire community.Mr. Jones said empowering residents is another key component of the Initiative.“Some of the educational initiatives we have planned for the month of February involve training persons in the communities as to how they can take lessons learnt from these cleanup initiatives and turn them into businesses – how to become a landscaper; how to use their trucks and turn it into a commercial enterprise, teaching them how to become entrepreneurs.“In talking to the residents, many of them have very good intentions and many of them want to see the area cleaned and to remain clean, but they just needed a jumpstart, that injection. You would be surprised how an injection of capital can lead to further things, such as taking the funds they earned today and buying a lawnmower with which they can start their own landscaping business for example,” Mr. Jones added.By: Matt Maura (BIS)Photo Captions:Header: Prime Minister, Dr. the Hon.

A much-anticipated Ridgefield park project is on hold while archaeologists determine whether pieces of the city’s past are buried in the soil underneath, officials said this week.City officials expected work to begin earlier this year on Overlook Park, a welcome center and park overlooking the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge. However, a preliminary analysis on the site showed it might hold Native American artifacts.Archaeologists performed a second evaluation of the site two weeks ago and anticipate filing a report on their findings with the Washington State Department of Transportation before Christmas. Workers with Archaeological Investigations Northwest reviewed the site for pieces of fire-cracked rock used to cook and debitage material used as tools by the Chinook, Cowlitz and other tribes, said Jo Reese, AINW’s corporate vice president and senior archaeologist.“We’re hoping to tell the story of the people who were there and the people who are still there,” the archaeologist said.There is no timeline for when the state will evaluate the report and decide whether excavation is needed at the site.City officials are taking the project’s delay in stride. After all, the project needednearly a decade before the city landed a high six-figure grant to put it on the verge of coming to fruition.“It’s part of the history of Ridgefield and we consider it as such,” City Manager Justin Clary said of the potential artifacts.Overlook Park’s genesis came in 2000 when a Seattle landscape architecture firm suggested the city develop a welcome center to strengthen the tie between its downtown and wildlife refuge. Five years later, the Friends of the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge finished raising $210,000 to buy a 0.75-acre piece of land at the corner of Main Avenue and Pioneer Street (state Highway 501).In 2010, the city received a $783,000 grant from the Southwest Washington Regional Transportation Council. One of the qualifications for the grant was construction of a welcome center. The park’s location on a state highway made it eligible to house a welcome center.
One day after announcing the resignation of its chief financial officer, Nautilus Inc. said Friday that it expects to report a 12 percent sales increase when its fourth quarter results are reported in March.Company officials have not responded to media requests for comment about the exit of Michael Mulholland, who resigned Jan. 20 after having being hired last May.Nautilus stock closed Friday at $2.30 a share on the New York Stock Exchange, a nearly 20 percent increase from Thursday’s close.In the statement issued Friday, Nautilus said it expected to report net sales of about $60.3 million, up 12 percent over the same period in 2010. For the full fiscal year, net sales are expected to be about $180.7 million, up 7 percent from 2010.The numbers reported Friday are unaudited, the company said.

Rapid melt and sea ice with low permeability and few cracks leaves the melt water on top. pic.twitter.com/ytlBDTrVeD— Rasmus Tonboe (@RasmusTonboe) June 14, 2019 Olsen took the photo while working on a project in collaboration with local subsistence hunters in Qaanaaq to monitor sea ice and ocean conditions. The dog team was being used to retrieve instruments from the sea ice before it completely breaks up. “This year the expedition to retrieve the instruments ran into a lot of standing water on the sea ice,” Mottram said. “Normally we would expect these kind of warm melt events to occur later in the summer in late June or July so it is pretty unusual that it happened this early, though it’s not unprecedented.” The extreme warm temperatures in Greenland are expected to last a few more days and Mottram says climate models also show that the length of the sea ice season around the island is expected to shorten as global temperatures rise. The view from northern Greenland during a heat wave over the past week. Steffen M. Olsen / DMI Over the past week temperatures in northern Greenland have been comparable to the weather in Seattle, causing the top layer of sea ice near the village of Qaanaaq to turn into the Arctic equivalent of a kiddie pool. Danish climate researcher Steffen Olsen took the above photo of a dogsled team wading through the meltwater, which quickly went viral online as a vivid illustration of global warming in action. “Given how warm it was, it’s easy to see why there was a lot melting,” Ruth Mottram from the Danish Meteorological Institute explained via email. “As the ice in this region is relatively thick and fracture-free, the melt water is unable to drain away through cracks in the ice as it would normally and hence the challenging conditions for the dogsleds.” 6 Sci-Tech

If you are the CEO of a company, you need to remain positive and optimistic regardless of how bad business has been lately. And while Nintendo may be doing fine with its handheld gaming business, the home console market is another story completely and the Wii U just isn’t selling.Still, Satoru Iwata is upbeat, even in the face of brand new competition. In fact, he sees the launch of the PS4 and Xbox One as beneficial for his company’s games console.Most people would see two new, more powerful consoles coming to market as really bad news for the Wii U, but not Iwata. He is taking the view that the added competition and marketing surrounding the new machines will just bring more attention to the games industry as a whole. I agree with him on that point, but he also thinks that the competition will make Nintendo and Wii U stand out for its “unique value” and “family oriented titles.”It’s true that the Wii U has a focus on games for younger audiences and the family as a whole, but I can’t see how the PS4 and Xbox One launching will suddenly make parents and kids realize what they have been missing by not purchasing a Wii U.I don’t hear anyone comparing the PS4, Xbox One and Wii U pre-launch. Gamers are thinking about PS4 or Xbox One. That’s the choice to be made. Nintendo is also confusing matters this holiday season by choosing to launch the Wii Mini in the US. As well as being $200 cheaper than a Wii U, it doesn’t offer access to downloadable games or streaming entertainment. If you want gamers to choose the technically cheapest next-gen console, you don’t launch a $99 console that ultimately competes with it for space under the tree this Christmas.Ultimately, Nintendo believes that the Wii U is targeted at a very different audience than the competition. But while that may be true, it has been targeted and promoted to that audience for almost a year now, and sales remain surprisingly low. New games will help, but it’s already looking like the Wii U is set for third place in the soon to be new current-gen console market.Now read: New Wii U bundle drops Nintendoland for Mario and Luigi

New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Rodriguez Larreta is an economist and was chief of staff for outgoing mayor and likely presidential candidate Mauricio Macri. Rodriguez Larreta won the most votes in the opening round of balloting July 5, but did not garner enough votes to avoid a run-off with Lousteau.In his victory speech, Rodriguez Larreta thanked Macri for his work as mayor and vowed to continue improving public education, health and security for Argentina’s capital city.“I’m optimistic about the future because with Mauricio (Macri) as president, Argentina will recover its path of growth and well-being for all. And that will benefit all of the citizens of Buenos Aires as well,” he said.With Buenos Aires’ 2.5 million voters accounting for nearly 8 percent of Argentina’s voting population, the capital city’s election was being closely watched for tendencies for the Aug. 9 presidential primaries and the Oct. 25 national election.Both Rodriguez Larreta and Lousteau are critical of President Cristina Fernandez’s leftist government. The candidate representing Fernandez’s Victory Front coalition, Mariano Recalde, was knocked out of the race after finishing third in the first round July 5. BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — Conservative Horacio Rodriguez Larreta won Sunday’s mayoral run-off election in Buenos Aires, in a closer race than his opposition party had hoped for in the key region ahead of presidential voting later this year.With 99.9 percent of ballots counted, the candidate of the business-friendly PRO Party had 51.6 percent of the votes. His rival, ECO Party candidate and former economy minister Martin Lousteau, got 48.4 percent.

His main rival is Buenos Aires Gov. Daniel Scioli, who has been picked by Fernandez to continue the populist policies that began with her husband’s presidency. Fernandez is barred from seeking a third consecutive term.Restoring Argentina’s sense of pride and sovereignty after the country’s worst economic crisis in 2001 has been the central goal of Fernandez and Kirchner. The presidential couple negotiated or paid off most of Argentina’s defaulted debt, nationalized the pension system, kept energy cheap through subsidies and dug deep into the treasury to redirect revenue to the poor through handouts.But many Argentines are calling for change amid frustration with one of the world’s highest inflation rates, government currency and trade controls and corruption accusations that have penetrated deep into Fernandez’s inner circle.

The district court of Paphos on Tuesday acquitted a 53-year-old man accused of drunk driving, because no evidence of his offence was submitted.According to the indictment, he was driving his vehicle on June 10, 2015 when a breathalyser test showed 104mg instead of the permitted 22mg.But the judge, announcing the court’s decision, said police did not bring proof of the test results to the trial and thus it could not be concluded that the driver had indeed consumed an excessive amount of alcohol.He added the defence lawyer was right when he said a printed test result needed to be provided as evidence.

mines and establish power generation facilities and transportation infrastructure around mines" the MOLIT said according to a translation by NK News "Profitability will be secured by owning the development rights of resources or exploiting mineral resources" The MOLIT was not acting under the direction of the then unelected Moon but clearly saw the changing tenor of South Korean policy toward the Kim regime It is of course politically expedient for government officials to endear themselves to an incoming administration by exploring policies it might like And there are also powerful South Korean business interests that would benefit from reengagement with the North and have stepped up lobbying officials and lawmakers since the December impeachment of outgoing conservative President Park Geun-hye There’s little doubt Moon would be receptive to the idea He told the National Assembly shortly after his election victory "If the conditions shape up I will go to Pyongyang" He also named Suh Hoon as his pick to head the National Intelligence Service subject to National Assembly approval Suh has already indicated he would be willing to go to Pyongyang with a view to holding another inter-Korean summit similar to those he was involved in organizing in 2000 and 2007 It is easy to see why "These steps reduce both Koreas interstate war risks providing the sides with communication and non-military options to de-escalate in the case of a provocative incident such as a sixth nuclear test by North Korea" writes Alison Evans of the IHS Markit analysis firm Still the shift presents a challenge for US foreign policy under President Donald Trump who has looked to squeeze the Kim regime in response to its escalating missile and nuclear tests Projects like that proposed by the MOLIT would undermine the economic pressure put on the regime by China which in March suspended North Korean coal imports for the rest of the year in line with tough new UN sanctions Read More: TIME Exclusive: Will South Korean Presidential Hopeful Moon Jae-in Pull the World Back From Nuclear War More intriguingly though those same UN sanctions also ban collaborating in coal copper gold iron magnesite and zinc some of the specific industries listed in the MOLIT "emergency notice" "Put another way MOLIT is putting out a call for bids to violate sanctions" write Marcus Noland and Kent Boydston in an analysis blog for the Peterson Institute for International Economics Exploring the possibility of violating sanctions is not the same as actually violating them though it demonstrates some of the logistical hurdles of Moons vow to rekindle the "Sunshine Policy" of engagement with the North Other than international economic measures which Moon would either have to flout or renegotiate angering Washington and Tokyo among others there is domestic legislation to navigate Last years North Korean Human Rights Act for example requires vulnerable groups to be prioritized for any aid To make sure of that you need independent monitoring of the North Korean populace which has historically made the regime extremely uncomfortable Of course any engagement would be welcomed by China which has long advocated trying to change the regimes bad behavior through the Chinese Communist Party’s favorite panacea of economic development On Tuesday a spokesperson for Chinas Ministry of Foreign Affairs revealed that a North Korean delegation would even attend next weeks summit on the Belt and Road Initiative President Xi Jinpings signature transnational trade and infrastructure development project along the route of the old Silk Road The idea of winning the hearts and minds of North Korean through their pockets isnt revolutionary of course In 2006 former South Korean President Lee Myung-bak trumpeted a similar economic engagement policy dubbed Vision 3000 owing to its aim to raise North Koreas per capita income to $3000 in order to lessen the pain of eventual reunification (Last year South Korean GDP was $138 trillion; North Koreas was 1% of that at $16 billion) The caveat of course was that North Korea would have had to take concrete measures to denuclearize But Vision 3000 suffered from other problems that also undermine the new MOLIT proposal: "Its tantamount to neocolonialism and that really angers the North Koreans" says Christopher Green a North Korea expert at Leiden University in the Netherlands "Saying to North Korea were going to take control over your economy may make perfect sense from a mercantile South Korean perspective" adds Green "But its going to be like a red rag to a bull for the North Koreans You have to be a lot stealthier than that" Owing not least to founding father Kim Il Sung’s principle of juche or “patriotic self-reliance” the biggest barrier to economic engagement with North Korea is the regime itself Previous attempts to coax the Kim clan to embrace liberal economic polices have all failed dismally A large free trade zone adjacent to the Chinese city of Dandong at the southern edge of the 880-mile shared border lies empty The key architect of the project was Kim Jong Uns uncle Jang Song-thaek who was executed in December 2013 Even small steps like reopening the Kaesong Joint Industrial Complex near the DMZ where South Korean firms had access to cheap North Korean labor depends on North Korean acquiescence (The complex was shuttered by Seoul in February 2016 following a North Korean satellite launch) Read More: Beyond the Shadows in North Korea In 2013 123 South Korean companies were paying 53000 North Korean workers annual wages amounting to $90 million which were directly collected by the North Korean government One might think that the regime would welcome the reopening of the plant as well as Moons expressed desire to expand it to 20 times the size presuming the regime would then collect 20 times the wages However an expanded Kaesong was always the plan signed off by Kim Jong Uns father Kim Jong Il Its just that phase one of the original project was all that opened because North Korea was wary of the potential destabilizing effect of too many of its citizens having so much exposure to affluent South Koreans The North Korean leadership knows that it would be risky to embrace full economic liberalization given the loosening of societal controls that would entail The presence of a democratic thriving and culturally homogeneous South Korea across the DMZ means any loosening of controls could prompt agitation for reunification spelling the end of the regime Restrained reengagement is of course very possible especially if China keeps up economic pressure But anything more especially involving a binding agreement to denuclearize is as fraught a prospect now as it ever was Write to Charlie Campbell at charliecampbell@timecomThe number of Americans voting before Election Day has continued to rise in the last decade In 2012 some 35% of ballots were cast early This year 37 states and the District of Columbia allow some form of early voting according to the Associated Press There’s more than one kind Some voters cast absentee ballots by mail while others cast early in-person votes at the election office or other designated locations On Friday North Carolina will become the first state to mail out its absentee ballots while voters there can begin voting in-person on Oct 20 Read Next: Here Are the Last Possible Dates You Can Register to Vote in Your State Early voting will account for around half of the ballots cast in battleground states like North Carolina Colorado Florida Arizona Nevada and Georgia according to an AP elections projection Here’s a guide to when in-person early voting starts in key states (Absentee ballots may go out at different times) September 23: Idaho Minnesota South Dakota Vermont Wyoming 24: New Jersey 29: Illinois Iowa North Dakota October 9: Maine 10: California Nebraska 11: Montana New Mexico 12: Arizona Indiana Ohio 17: Georgia 19: Kansas Tennessee 20: North Carolina 21: Washington 22: Nevada 24: Alaska Arkansas Colorado Massachusetts Texas Wisconsin 25: Hawaii Louisiana Utah 26: West Virginia 27: Maryland 28: Washington DC 29: Florida November 3: Oklahoma Contact us at editors@timecom” moments or factual corrections. in the room.
