  • Investing On a Shoestring

    first_imgBy Barbara O’Neill, Ph.D., CFP®, Rutgers Cooperative Extension, oneill@aesop.rutgers.edu  Many people mistakenly think that they need to have at least several thousand dollars to invest. This is simply not true. It is possible to invest on a shoestring, with small dollar amounts ($1,000 or less). The Cover image Military Saves Week by Langley Air Force Base, Airman 1st Class Areca T.

Long DescriptionEven people with modest incomes can build wealth over time, and they don’t need a lot of money to get started.  For example, they could open an investment account with money from accumulated savings or an income tax refund and then make smaller regular deposits (e.g., $50 or $100 per month).Some investments can even be purchased in increments of $100 or less (e.g., $10 per paycheck invested in an employer retirement savings plan).  Setting aside small amounts of money regularly and reducing household expenses to “find” money to invest are the keys to successful shoestring investing.Below are six action steps to invest with small dollar amounts for service members:Make Tax-Deferred Deposits at Work- The Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) is the tax-deferred retirement savings plan for service members and federal government employees. Contributions are made as a percentage of basic pay via automatic payroll deductions. Other advantages are a federal income tax write-off for the plan contribution amount and tax-deferred growth of plan deposits and investment earnings.Buy Stocks on a Shoestring– Back in the day, stock investors often needed five-figure sums and a broker to buy 100 shares of several stocks to set up a diversified portfolio. This is no longer the case. Low-cost stock purchase options include investment clubs, dividend reinvestment plans (DRIPs), direct purchase plans or DPPs (where investors buy stock directly from a company), and various online investing platforms.Buy Bonds on Shoestring- All U.S. Treasury securities (i.e., bills, notes, and bonds) have $100 minimum deposits and $100 purchase increments. Specific details can be found on the Treasury Direct Other low-deposit, fixed-income investments include corporate bonds, zero-coupon bonds, and U.S. savings bonds. Series I bonds provide inflation protection, and series EE bonds pay interest based on current market rates.Buy Mutual Funds on a Shoestring– Initial minimum deposit amounts and minimums for subsequent deposits vary among mutual funds. If a mutual fund requires more than $1,000 to establish an account, it may still have lower minimums for IRAs and other retirement plans, minor’s accounts, and automatic investment plans where investors make regular deposits on a regular schedule (e.g., $100 per month).Collect Loose Change– Coins saved in some type of container add up over time and can provide “seed money” with which to make investment deposits. Better still, save $1 a day, plus coins (about $50 a month or $600 per year) or $2 a day, plus coins (about $80 a month or almost $1,000 per year). Ideally, use a clear jar or other type of container to see the investing seed money grow. Visibility provides motivation.Continue “Paying” an Expense- This strategy is powerful because it does not affect peoples’ cash flow or make them feel deprived. Simply continue making monthly “payments” as regular deposits to an investment plan after a loan or household expense ends. In other words, redirect the money from an expense to an investment. Examples include car loan payments, student loan payments, a mortgage, and child care.For additional information about investing on a shoestring budget, review the archived Military Families Learning Network webinar, Investing with Small Dollar Amounts and its accompanying handouts, including presentation slides, an online resource list, and an investment risk tolerance quiz. Another free resource for beginning investors with small dollar amounts is Unit 8 (Investing Small Dollar Amounts) of the free online Cooperative Extension basic investing course, Investing For Your Future.last_img read more

  • Evidence mounts against new stem cell method

    first_imgKOFU, JAPAN—A genetic analysis of what was claimed to be a new type of pluripotent stem cell has cast fresh doubts on the research. The independent analysis shows that the cells, called STAP cells, don’t match the mouse strain supposedly used in the experiments—possibly indicating inadvertent or deliberate switching of cellular material.”This doesn’t definitively show that STAP cells don’t exist, but there is no evidence supporting their existence,” said Teruhiko Wakayama, a mouse cloning pioneer at University of Yamanashi here, at a press conference today.The simple approach, known as stimulus-triggered acquisition of pluripotency, or STAP, was described in a pair of papers published online in Nature on 29 January by Haruko Obokata of the RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology (CDB) in Kobe and co-authors in Japan and at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, a Harvard Medical School affiliate in Boston. A RIKEN investigative panel documented plagiarism, image falsification, and other problems with the papers and concluded that Obokata had committed research misconduct.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)So far, no one has reported being able to replicate the reprogramming method, which involves exposing cells to various stresses. A RIKEN team is attempting to redo every step of the experiments described in the Nature papers. Wakayama, who was previously at CDB and is a co-author of both papers and a corresponding author on one, had supplied the mice for the experiments. He had a third party conduct a genetic analysis of what were supposed to be STAP cells that he’d received from Obokata. The tests showed that some of the cells were from a mouse strain that Wakayama had not provided.At the press conference, Wakayama acknowledged sharing responsibility for the problems with the Nature papers. But he noted that Obokata has an impressive educational background, had trained at Harvard, and was known as a superior researcher. She worked in his lab briefly and had consistently presented data at weekly meetings indicating her research was going well—so Wakayama says he didn’t think he needed to ask to see her notebooks or raw data. But as a co-author, he says, “I should have confirmed [research data] at least to some extent.”A RIKEN committee is now deliberating punitive measures for Obokata and others involved, including CDB officials. Wakayama says he deserves and is willing to accept some punishment. He declined to specify what he thinks that should be.last_img read more

  • Springer’s HR in 11th gives Astros 7-6 win, ties Series 1-1

    first_imgCPP denies ‘Ka Diego’ arrest caused ‘mass panic’ among S. Tagalog NPA QC cops nab robbery gang leader, cohort Yes, it was—barely—and the Houston Astros won a World Series game for the first time in their 56 seasons.Charlie Culberson hit a two-out homer in the bottom half off Chris Devenski, who then struck out Yasiel Puig in a tense, nine-pitch at-bat for the win. The Astros outlasted the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-6 in a Hollywood thriller Wednesday to tie the Series at one game apiece.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“Wasn’t that the best game ever!?” Alex Bregman proclaimed to no one in particular in the Astros clubhouse.On a night of dramatic swings and a World Series-record eight home runs, Marwin Gonzalez stunned the Dodger Stadium crowd with a solo shot off dominant Los Angeles closer Kenley Jansen on an 0-2 pitch in the ninth that made it 3-all. “We were pretty unlucky at the beginning of the game when Taylor dove in center field and (the ball) hit him in the face or head,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. “I felt like the baseball gods were returning the favor, by having an umpire standing in the way there.”Cameron Maybin, who had entered in the 10th, singled leading off the 11th against losing pitcher Brandon McCarthy, a surprise addition to the Dodgers’ World Series roster who was pitching for the first time since Oct. 1. Maybin stole second and Springer hit a drive to right-center for a 7-5 lead, just the third 11th-inning home run in the Series after shots by Kirby Puckett in 1991 and David Freese in 2011.Springer, an All-Star leadoff man, broke out of his slump with three hits and a walk after going 0 for 4 with four strikeouts in the Series opener Tuesday. His decisive drive made the Astros the first team to hit three extra-inning home runs in a postseason game.Devenski retired Corey Seager and Justin Turner on lineouts in the bottom half. Puig checked his swing on a 2-2 pitch — the Astros jumped when first base umpire Gerry Davis signaled no swing—and Puig fouled off two more. Devenski threw his fifth straight changeup, and Puig swung over it as the Astros ran onto the field to celebrate after finally closing out a back-and-forth game that lasted 4 hours, 19 minutes.“It was an emotional roller coaster,” said Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, who removed starter Rich Hill after he threw only 60 pitches in four solid innings and struck out seven.After another steamy night in a Santa Ana heat wave, the series shifts to Texas and resumes Friday night at Houston’s Minute Maid Park, where the retractable roof has not been open for a game since June 9. Lance McCullers Jr. starts for the Astros and Yu Darvish for the Dodgers, who acquired him from Texas at the July 31 trade deadline.Houston is 2-5 on the road in the postseason but 6-0 at home, where the Astros have outscored the Red Sox and Yankees by a combined 31-7.“We didn’t expect these guys to lay down. It’s a very good ballclub over there,” Roberts said. “We’ll be ready to go.”Before Gonzalez’s home run, the Dodgers had an 85 percent chance of winning, according to Fangraphs. After Correa’s long ball, the Astros were a 93 percent favorite.Verlander, wearing an undershirt, entered the dugout at one point and screamed at his teammates that the game was not over. “All of a sudden, two runs seemed like it was the Grand Canyon,” he said. “I was just trying to remind these guys two runs is nothing.”Bregman’s RBI single in the third gave Houston its first lead of the Series, a hit that might have turned into a three-run, inside-the-park homer had the ball not caromed off the bill of Taylor’s cap directly to left fielder Joc Pederson.Los Angeles had just two hits through seven innings but led 3-1 behind Pederson’s fifth-inning solo homer and Seager’s tiebreaking, two-run drive in the sixth against Verlander. It was Pederson’s first home run since July 26.Jansen entered with a 3-1 lead trying for his first six-out save in a year after Bregman doubled leading off the eighth against Brandon Morrow, a ball that ticked off the glove of a diving Puig in the right-field corner. Furious that he didn’t make what would have been a sensational catch, Puig slammed his mitt to the ground.Correa’s RBI single off Jansen ended a record 28-inning postseason scoreless streak by the Dodgers’ bullpen.Gonzalez, choking up on the bat, seemed an unlikely candidate for a tying homer. He had not driven in a run in his 45 plate appearances since Houston’s playoff opener, and the blown save was just the second for Jansen this year. The Dodgers had been 98-0 in 2017 when leading after eight innings, including the postseason.“I didn’t make my pitch,” Jansen said. “You can’t beat yourself up about that.”As the slanting sun illuminated the green hills of Elysian Park behind center field and the ochre-tinted San Gabriel Mountains beyond, retired Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully took the mound for the ceremonial first pitch . The 89-year-old, who left the booth in 2016 after his 67th season, charmed the crowd when he began “somewhere up in heaven, Duke Snider, Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella and Gil Hodges are laughing their heads off” at his presence on the mound. He feigned an arm injury and turned the ritual over to Fernando Valenzuela, who helped the Dodgers win their 1981 title.The game-time temperature was 93 degrees—down 10 degrees from the opener. Celebrities in the sellout crowd of 54,293 included golfers Tiger Woods and Fred Couples, and former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning.Houston improved to 10-0 in nine starts and one relief appearance by Verlander, the 2011 AL MVP and Cy Young Award winner obtained in a trade from Detroit at the Aug. 31 deadline to be eligible for the Astros’ postseason roster.

  • ‘The problem is I’m Italian’: Balotelli spurs racism debate

    first_imgMOST READ Drilon apologizes to BCDA’s Dizon over false claim on designer of P50-M ‘kaldero’ Castellini’s comment caught the attention of Liliana Segre , an 89-year-old Auschwitz survivor and Italian senator who recently proposed a parliamentary commission against anti-Semitism.“They’re still judging people by the color of their skin?” Segre said. “There’s a good reason why this commission should get to work straightaway.”Balotelli, meanwhile, wrote on Instagram: “People like (Castellini) should be banned from society — not just soccer.”Vincenzo Spadafora, the government minister for sport and youth policies, chimed in and ordered Hellas Verona and the city’s mayor — who had denied the existence of the racist chants — to condemn Castellini.Verona responded by banning Castellini from its stadium until 2030 — adding on to a previous ban through 2022 — and the Italian league ordered part of the Bentegodi Stadium closed to fans for the team’s next home match, noting that the chants “were clearly audible.”ADVERTISEMENT In a Serie A season that has been marred by discriminatory slurs from the outset, Balotelli’s outburst has prompted more debate, more outrage and more indignation over the problem of racism inside Italy’s stadiums than any other case.“I am not saying that I am different from the other players who receive the same abuse, the same monkey noises, but the problem is that I am Italian,” said Balotelli, who was born in Italy to Ghanaian immigrants and has represented the Italian national team.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGreatest ever?SPORTSFormer PBA import Anthony Grundy passes away at 40SPORTSSan Miguel suspends Santos, Nabong, Tubid indefinitely after ‘tussle’ in practiceLuca Castellini, the leader of the Hellas Verona “ultra” fan section that directed the racist chants at Balotelli and a leader in the far-right party Forza Nuova in Verona, sees it in his own way.“Balotelli is Italian because he has Italian citizenship but he’ll never be fully Italian,” Castellini said Monday, a day after the incident during the second half of the Verona-Brescia game.

There was also no punishment for racist chants aimed by Verona fans at AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie in September.Derogatory chants have also been aimed at Dalbert Henrique, Miralem Pjanic, Ronaldo Vieira and Kalidou Koulibaly in Serie A this season. All the players targeted — except for Pjanic, who is Bosnian — are black.“Too often the soccer clubs have played down and defended — due to laziness, connivance or fear — the extremists among their own fans,” Spadafora said. “Over the last few months things have started to change but there are still many steps to be taken.”On Tuesday, Verona prosecutors announced the opening of two separate criminal investigations — one into Castellini for allegedly instigating racial discrimination and the other into the chants inside the stadium.Hellas Verona president Maurizio Setti said his team was being treated as “a scapegoat,” while Verona Mayor Federico Sboarina labeled the partial stadium closure “Kafkian.”Another city politician suggested a class action lawsuit against the Italian league, and a group of city council members proposed that the city should sue Balotelli for defamation.There is a long history of Balotelli being subjected to racist chants in Verona, stretching back to when he said “the fans in Verona disgust me” after a Chievo Verona-Inter Milan match in 2010 when he played for Inter.After three seasons in France, Balotelli returned to Italy this season with Brescia, his hometown club and a regional rival of Verona.“I’ll be honest, I really like the stadium in Verona and their fans, as they have always mocked in an amusing and ironic way,” Balotelli said on TV channel Italia 1. “If they want to distract a player, they can do it in a thousand ways, but not (with racism).“My daughter saw this on TV and that made it hurt three times as much,” Balotelli added. “I can take all kinds of insults, but ones based on racism are not acceptable, have never been acceptable and never will be acceptable.

  • Women’s World Cup: India’s unbeaten run ends against dominant South Africa

    first_imgDane van Niekerk came up with a superb all-round performance as South Africa dominated with both bat and ball to thrash India by 115 runs in a group match of the women’s cricket World Cup here on Saturday.This was the first defeat of the tournament for India who had won their previous matches by comfortable margins. They are now second on the table behind Australia with eight points from five matches.South Africa are fourth with seven points from five games. They are on the same number of points as third placed New Zealand but are trailing on net run rate.Batting first, South Africa rode on half-centuries from Lizelle Lee and Dane to post a challenging 273/9 in their allotted 50 overs.Dane then returned figures of 4/22 in her 10 overs as India were dismissed for 158 runs in 46 overs.Lee was the highest scorer for South Africa with a breezy 92 runs off 65 balls. Her knock, which included 10 boundaries and seven sixes, helped stabilise the innings following the early departure of fellow opener Laura Wolvaardt.Lee subsequently posted a 91-run partnership with Trisha Chetty and a 42-run stand with Mignon du Preez to lay the foundation of a big total.Lee was unlucky to miss out on what would have been a well-deserved century when she was trapped leg before while attempting to smash a delivery from off-spinner Harmanpreet Kaur over mid-wicket.Dane then took charge in the middle, scoring 57 runs in 66 balls with seven boundaries and a six.She received good support from Chloe Tyron who scored 24 runs off 18 balls, hitting two sixes and a boundary along the way.advertisementPacer Shikha Pandey was the most successful among the Indian bowlers with figures of 3/40.The Indian innings ran into trouble right at the start as they lost wickets at regular intervals.Deepti was the highest scorer for India with 60 runs off 111 balls with five hits to the fence. But she waged a lonely battle as wickets kept falling at the other end.Jhulan Goswami was the only other Indian batter who managed to stand up to the South African bowlers with an unbeaten 43 off 79 balls.Dane ran amok with her leg-spin in the early stages as the Indians were reduced to 7/65 by the end of the 20th over.Deepti and Jhulan managed to stem the rot for a while, batting together for 18.2 overs, adding 53 runs between them.That was the only bit of resistance the Indians could manage on the day. When Dane dismissed Deepti with the first ball of the 39th over, a South African victory was only a matter of time.Brief scores:South Africa 273/9 in 50 overs (Lizelle Lee 92, Dane van Niekerk 57; Shikha Pandey 3/40) beat India 158 in 46 overs (Deepti Sharma 60, Jhulan Goswami 43 not out; Dane van Niekerk 4/22) by 115 runs.last_img read more

  • Average spot power price falls 2 to Rs 338 a unit in

    first_imgNew Delhi: Average spot power price dipped 2 per cent to Rs 3.38 per unit in July at the Indian Energy Exchange (IEX) as compared with Rs 3.46 per unit a year ago. “The average market clearing price (MCP) in the day-ahead market was Rs 3.38 per unit it recorded decrease of 2 per cent on y-o-y (year-on-year) basis from Rs 3.46 per unit in July 2018,” the IEX said in a statement. Low price coupled with greater certainty and predictability in procurement continue to make compelling proposition for the power distribution companies (discoms) as well as open access consumers to step up their procurement through the IEX, it added.

The increase in volume corroborated well with increase in demand for electricity in the select eastern, western and southern states. The discoms across these states preferred the day-ahead and the term-ahead electricity market on exchange to leverage the competitive price discovery, coupled with the benefit of flexible and predictable procurement since ‘One Nation and One Price’ prevailed on all 31 days during the month of July, it added.last_img read more

  • US Congress repeals meat labelling law after facing Canadian retaliation

    OTTAWA — A potential trade war between Canada and the United States was all but averted Friday when Congress passed a massive spending bill that also repealed a controversial meat labelling law.The 2,000-plus pages of legislation contained a two-page rider that scrapped the U.S. labelling law, known as COOL, which had become a major irritant among Canada, Mexico and the U.S.The World Trade Organization granted Canada and Mexico the right to impose $1 billion in punitive tariffs on various U.S. products after finding that COOL violated international trade rules.Trade war with U.S. likely averted, but Canada keeps retaliation on the tableWorld Trade Organization sides with Canada, Mexico in meat labelling dispute with U.S.International Trade Minister Chrystia Freeland and Agriculture Minister Lawrence MacAulay have said Canada was pressing Congress to scrap COOL or face the retaliatory tariffs.They were focusing on the Senate, where some Democrats supported COOL because of domestic political interests.Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts, the Republican chair of the Senate’s powerful agriculture committee, said Friday he was relieved that COOL had been repealed and that the bill would soon land on President Barack Obama’s desk for signature. read more

  • US budget deficit jumps in May as spending outpaces revenue

    WASHINGTON – The U.S. budget deficit rose to $88.4 billion in May from $53 billion a year earlier, as government spending in areas such as Medicaid and defence rose at a faster pace than revenue.Receipts from individual and corporate taxes rose 7 per cent last month from May 2016 to $240 billion, the Treasury Department said Monday. Meanwhile, spending leapt 19 per cent to $329 billion.Taxe revenue is rising, but at a slower pace than in previous years and by less than the Congressional Budget Office has forecast. That partly reflects slower growth in the economy and hiring. With the unemployment rate low, fewer workers are available to take open jobs.That is widening the deficit at the same time the Trump administration has proposed steep tax cuts. The administration has also pushed for sharp reductions in spending, but Trump’s proposed budget depends on annual growth of 3 per cent to balance over time. The economy expanded 1.6 per cent last year and hasn’t grown 3 per cent since 2005.Meanwhile, the deficit has increased to $433 billion in the first eight months of this budget year from $405 billion last year.Medicaid costs have risen 3 per cent, partly because the Obama administration’s Affordable Care Act has brought more people in the program. Defence spending jumped 17 per cent in May but has been flat this year.The government has also spent $35 billion more this year on interest on its debt, a gain of 14 per cent, Treasury said. That is mostly because inflation has picked up a bit since last summer, which pushes up interest payments on the government’s inflation-adjusted bonds, known as TIPS.Also Monday, a Washington think-tank projected that despite the slowdown in revenues, the government will have enough cash to pay its bills until October or November. The Bipartisan Policy Center estimate is more optimistic than Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who has been warning Congress that it must act before it leaves on its August recess.The think-tank says that revenue results from this month’s quarterly tax payments are likely to clarify the deadline, but for now Mnuchin has sufficient manoeuvring room — by using accounting steps known as “extraordinary measures” — to keep the government solvent into the fall. The policy centre says a big Oct. 2 payment into the military retirement trust fund could trigger default.The Congressional Budget Office has projected that the deficit for the full budget year, which ends on Sept. 30, will decline 4.6 per cent to $559 billion. That would compare to a 2016 deficit of $585.6 billion.The CBO’s deficit estimate is based on current law remaining unchanged. President Donald Trump has called for a program of tax cuts for individuals and businesses, and increased government spending in such areas as the military and repairing the nation’s aging infrastructure.Under Trump’s proposal, released last month, the deficit would increase this year to $602.5 billion.___Associated Press Writer Andrew Taylor contributed to this report.

  • Security Council fails to adopt proposal to create tribunal on crash of

    Malaysia’s Minister of Transport, Liow Tiong Lai, who introduced the draft resolution, expressed “disappointment” after the text was vetoed by Russia, while Angola. China and Venezuela abstained and the remaining 11 members of the Council voted in favour. If one of the Council’s five permanent members casts a negative vote on a resolution, the text cannot be adopted.The resolution would have urged the earliest possible finalization of the ongoing international technical investigation into the cause of the crash, in which 298 people died, and the criminal investigation. It would have requested Member States to work together in the Joint Investigation Team to continue to keep the Council fully and regularly informed of the progress of its.The statute of the proposed “International Criminal Tribunal for Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17” was annexed to the draft.On the first anniversary of that tragedy, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon issued a statement in which he said “the victims must be honoured by a collective effort to ascertain the truth about the incident and ensure that any persons determined responsible will be held to account.” read more

  • Weir expands Xmeco Foundry to meet global demand

    first_imgWeir Minerals Africa is making a substantial investment into its newly acquired Xmeco Foundry in Port Elizabeth that will upgrade it to the point where these facilities will be capable of not only producing the company’s requirements from an African perspective, but also having sufficient capacity to supply other businesses within the Weir Group globally. The Xmeco Foundry occupies a 4.5 ha site in the Neave township of Port Elizabeth, where it manufactures castings varying in size from a few kilos to a maximum of 18 t in a variety of alloys.“This facility is capable of ramping up to about 1,000 t/mth and we believe it’s potentially one of the lower cost facilities in the world for the production of our parts,” Dave Athey, Weir Minerals Africa Regional MD for Middle East and Africa, said. “We’re already looking at the possibility of supplying cast products into the Canadian oil sands sector. As higher oil prices and new technology enable profitable extraction and processing, these bitumen sands have only recently been considered to be part of the world’s oil reserves. The Weir Enterprise Resource Planning system has been implemented at the foundry and we’re currently deploying the Weir Production System. As we ramp up production at this heavy bay foundry, we will start seeing improvements in our own internal operating efficiencies. The Xmeco Foundry complements our existing African operation, adding the heavy bay capacity that is vital for future growth and boosting our existing foundry expertise with valuable new talent and specialised foundry personnel. It will also enhance productivity with the application of Weir’s lean philosophy in the production, manufacturing technology, supply chain and front-end business processes.”He added: “A big advantage of this foundry and, indeed one of the main reasons it was chosen as an acquisition target, is its proximity to the deep water Port of Ngqura. Typically, the Canadian oil sands use very large pumps and pump components, and a single pour for a component or part could be up to 20 tons. Being so close to a major port will help us achieve significant savings in logistics costs.”Athey also commented that there has been a shift in the mining environment that is seeing a change in thinking about how the major mining houses progress with their capital expenditure: “The major mining houses have announced they intend reducing the amount of money spent on new greenfield capital projects, in favour of a stronger focus on brownfield expansion and operating efficiencies. This is both good and bad news. The bad news obviously is that the future growth of new greenfield projects will slow, but the good news is that there will be increasing emphasis on operating efficiencies and operational output. To achieve this, local mines will need best performing equipment including best in class wear components, and this is one of the areas in which we’ve excelled. The Total Cost of Ownership (TOC) theme underpins the design of all our equipment with a focus on issues around engineering, hydraulics and the cost of materials, as well as how quickly and easily components can be changed out, repaired and maintained. Another big drive for us over the past five years has been to develop a superior installed service base that is on the doorstep of our major customer hubs in all the major mining countries of Africa. This has created a genuine competitive edge for our company.”In addition, Athey says there has been a robust internal focus on product development. In the past two years the company has introduced new pump ranges, namely the SLR and WBH slurry pumps and the MCR mill circuit pumps. These designs have replaced the original Warman style pumps with new technologies that incorporate new improved hydraulics, higher efficiencies and new materials and components. Weir Minerals Africa produces a large proportion of these products in-house importing only items such as electric motors, bearings and natural rubber, resulting in about 95% local content.  The company has its own manufacturing facilities and also outsources certain items to local third party manufacturing facilities.last_img read more

  • Dr James Veltmeyers on his editorial Democrat Party Elites are the modern

    first_img Posted: January 18, 2019 KUSI Newsroom Dr. James Veltmeyer’s on his editorial, “Democrat Party Elites are the modern Slavemasters” LA JOLLA (KUSI) – Dr. James Veltmeyer is a prominent La Jolla physician voted “Top Doctor” in San Diego County in 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2017. He wrote an editorial voicing his opinion on the government shutdown and how it has impacted the United States of America.Veltmeyer’s opinion piece titled, “Democrat Party Elites are the Modern Slavemasters” can be read below.By James D. Veltmeyer, M.D.As a child immigrant from South America, I can only watch with anguishas the migrant caravan from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvadormarches through Mexico and seeks to enter the United States.However, my anguish is not because I believe the U.S. government isin error by strictly enforcing our nation’s laws and blocking a foreign legionfrom violating our sovereignty. The Trump Administration is absolutelycorrect that illegal entry into the United States must be stopped; if the migrantshave a legitimate claim for asylum due to political or religious persecution, theymust apply at a valid port of entry and be processed legally. I should know. Icame to America legally, waiting years to get a visa. If there needs to be somereform of the immigration system, it is not by erasing national borders andnational sovereignty.Every country has an inherent right to determine who it accepts into itsbosom. This is fundamental to the very concept of nationhood. Most of themigrants are economic refugees and the U.S. obviously cannot absorb everyperson on the planet who thinks they can get a better job here.Yet, the existence of a welfare state in the United States since LyndonJohnson’s “Great Society” of the mid-1960s has done exactly what Nobel Prize-winning economist Milton Friedman once argued was impossible: “openborders with a welfare state.” It is impossible and unsustainable becausesuch a system will automatically attract most of the world’s population toour shores to gain access to the liberal social benefits we offer, from freeeducation and health care, to food stamps, welfare, and even subsidies toattend college! Now, San Francisco even maintains that the right to voteshould follow.Having come to the United States from Ecuador, I know a little abouthow socialist welfare states destroy societies. Look at Venezuela as a primeexample. An oil-rich nation, once the pride of the continent, is now an economicbasket-case that can’t print additional zeros fast enough on its worthlesscurrency. This is the result of socialism.Socialism does not uplift individuals; it impoverishes them. It does notraise living standards; it decimates them. It does not advance human potential,but, as Franklin D. Roosevelt said, it subtly destroys the human spirit. Thisfailed ideology—of whatever variety– has never worked successfully anywhereand never will. Neither Bernie Sanders $30 trillion “Medicare for all” nor thelatest giveaway scheme mouthed by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez can succeedbecause as Margaret Thatcher noted, “You eventually run out of other people’smoney.” Or, the ink on the printing presses runs dry.Of course, socialism itself has never been a system intended to helpanyone, anyone other than the elite ruling class of a nation who see it not as away to raise up the poor and working class, but as a way to keep them downand under control, stifling their ambition and upward mobility. Socialism isslavery or serfdom, pure and simple. I’m from South America, so I know a littleabout tyranny. And, socialism is tyranny. Even Marx saw socialism as only thephase preceding communism. However, far from the “withering away of thestate,” socialism’s final stage –communism — only leads to a totalitarian terrorstate that bulldozes human liberty and enslaves the human soul.The socialism ( or what is currently mislabeled “progressivism” ) that theDemocrat Party offers new arrivals from abroad – be they legal immigrants orillegal aliens – is not the freedom they crave, but the slave state of politicaland economic regimentation lorded over by a ruling elite that seeks only toexpand and maintain its power. That is exactly what the Pelosis, Schumers andcompany seek – not to help a suffering population or rescue those escapingpoverty or persecution abroad, but to use these unfortunate people in a cynicalpolitical power play to solidify their electoral position through creating apermanently dependent underclass willing to trade its votes for the promise ofcradle to grave security. It is an illusion and it is despicable. Yet, it is the history ofthe Democrat Party in America for more than a century—from being the party ofsouthern slaveholders to being the party of Tammany Hall, which cruellymanipulated our earlier generations of immigrants— exchanging jobs for votes.They are still at it, now exchanging food stamps and Medicaid for votes.The Democrat Party detests the idea of its immigrant underclass becomingself-reliant and independent, business owners and entrepreneurs. That may leadthem to becoming Republicans, after all!Far from being the party of working people, the Democrat Party today isthe party of the billionaire plutocrat elites – the Steyers and Soros andBloombergs – which draws its greatest strength from the millionaire enclaves ofSilicon Valley, Manhattan, and suburban Washington. D.C. And, these are thefolks whose aspirations for the migrant caravans yearning for the AmericanDream is to consign them to a future of despair and dependency where theirhopes for the future remain buried in sub-minimum wage jobs and tending to thelawns, toilets, and estates of their present-day slavemasters.

  • Wind power companies criticize BPA shutdown plan

    first_imgPORTLAND (AP) — Wind power companies facing a springtime shutdown to accommodate a surge of hydropower in the Northwest said Tuesday the region’s main power manager has a conflict of interest, using authority over transmission lines to protect its business interests.The claim by the American Wind Energy Association follows the Bonneville Power Administration’s announcement last week that it plans to curtail use of wind power because of a surplus of energy from hydroelectric dams.Such a shutdown could cost Northwest wind developers millions of dollars in tax credits.BPA spokesman Michael Milstein said the process might not start this week because more water can be stored behind Grand Coulee Dam than had been expected, relieving pressure to use it for power generation.The BPA has long handled about three-quarters of the region’s electrical transmission. At the same time, it sells power from Columbia Basin dams to customers such as public power districts.The wind energy advocacy group said in a statement the BPA is using its transmission authority “to illegally promote its own narrow economic interest,” breaking contracts with wind developers, favoring other energy producers and, in the process, thwarting the green energy policy of the Obama administration.last_img read more
