In 2018, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Rwanda and Ivory Coast all grew by more than seven per cent, according to the International Monetary Fund. Another of the schemes is to develop a new facility with the World Bank to develop more local currency bonds in African countries, letting businesses and governments raise investment more easily. The announcements came ahead of the UK-Africa Investment Summit on Monday in London, which will bring together City executives and political and business leaders from various African countries. He added: “Today’s announcements are a brilliant step forward in supporting that objective.”center_img World Bank president David Malpass said another important element to improving investment in the region is “strong actions from countries to improve rule of law and take on vested interests”. Harry Robertson Share London is the most popular destination for African businesses to list outside the continent. Yet assets from African countries still only account for around per cent of total investments managed by the City. UK minister for investment Graham Stuart said: “The UK’s position as a world centre for finance makes it well positioned to support increased private sector investment into Africa, creating more jobs, driving economic growth and financing vital infrastructure projects.” Sharma said: “The UK is already the top financial exchange for Africa’s businesses and we want investors to seize the exciting opportunities that Africa offers.” whatsapp whatsapp Show Comments ▼ More From Our Partners Native American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comlast_img read more

first_imgUncategorizedBackstage Pass: “Tattoo Nation”This documentary goes beneath the skin to trace skin art’s local rootsBy Catherine Green – April 4, 2013553ShareEmailFacebookTwitterPinterestReddItDirector Eric Schwartz’s new documentary, Tattoo Nation, traces ink’s modern-day trajectory from the detailed black-and-gray shading born in California’s Chicano community during the 1970s to the strip mall parlors and sorority-girl tramp stamps prevalent in the 1990s to the entire body-as-canvas aesthetic of today. Former L.A. Ink star Corey Miller, who owns a tattoo shop in Upland and narrates the film, takes a Zen approach to the commercialization of the formerly outlaw art form. “When the public gets hold of anything, they tend to overdo it,” Miller says. “But that’s a cycle that goes with everything. It’ll settle down again.” Tattoo Nation plays today through Tuesday at Arclight Hollywood. TAGSArclight CinemaCorey MillerEric SchwartzL.A.

first_imgBy Mike Wackett 17/01/2019 The Ocean Alliance, the largest of the three east-west trade vessel sharing agreements, has published its network revamp, which includes the addition of a seventh Asia-North Europe loop.Alliance members CMA CGM, COSCO, Evergreen and COSCO-owned OOCL announced their Day 3 Product, to be launched in April, deploying 330 container vessels with an estimated carrying capacity of 3.8m teu across 38 service lanes.Rodolphe Saade, chairman and chief executive of CMA CGM, said: “This new agreement with our Asian partners will enable us to propose to our customers an unrivalled and competitive service offering.”Andy Tung, co-chief executive of OOCL, added: “In today’s tough industry environment and volatility in the global marketplace, it is important that we are able to maintain our operational agility and move quickly to adapt to any changes in the global supply chain.“The refinements we have made proves our commitment to not only meeting the evolving needs of the market, but also ensuring customers are well served with the best selection and most competitive suite of products.”The Ocean Alliance is the final east-west VSA grouping to announce a revamp of its network. The 2M and THE alliances published service amendments and upgrades late last year.2M partners Maersk Line and MSC concentrated on slowing down the fleet and cutting port calls to add buffer time and improve schedule integrity, deploying a further six ULCVs into their six Asia-North Europe and four Asia-Mediterranean loops to pick up the slack.The smaller THE Alliance, comprising Hapag-Lloyd, ONE and Yang Ming, decided to rationalise its east-west offering with a new pendulum service combining its FE1 Asia-North Europe loop with the transpacific PS1 and PS2 Asia-US west coast strings.However, with COSCO expected to receive around a dozen 19,200-21,200 teu newbuild ULCVs in the first half of this year, the Ocean Alliance has opted to add a seventh loop to its Asia-North Europe offering, with a port rotation of Shanghai-Ningbo-Kaohsiung-Shekou-Colombo-Antwerp-Hamburg-Rotterdam-Port Kelang-Shanghai.“With the addition of the new Loop 7 product, the increased frequency between Asia and North Europe will allow for greater loading flexibility, confidence on service commitments, as well as room for growth through the extended network coverage,” said OOCL.CMA CGM said it would operate 111 ships out of the 330 container vessels deployed on the revised Ocean Alliance network. The number of vessels provide by the other Ocean Alliance members was not disclosed.Globally third-ranked COSCO is the largest partner in the Ocean Alliance with a fleet capacity, including its OOCL subsidiary, of 2.8m teu. Just behind it in fourth place is CMA CGM, which has a total capacity of 2.67m teu.Evergreen has a capacity of 1.2m teu, currently ranking it in seventh place, behind ONE and Hapag-Lloyd. However, the carrier has a substantial orderbook of 440,000 teu, which when delivered will see the Taiwanese line leapfrog both, which only have a combined 42,000 teu of tonnage on order.last_img read more

HealthHeather Greenlee: Promoting veggies, and acupuncture, to help cope with cancer By Karen Weintraub April 8, 2016 Reprints For generations, people with cancer were treated solely for their tumor — not for the pain and other symptoms that came with it. So patients quietly turned to alternative and complementary therapies, outside the halls of medicine.Now, researchers like Heather Greenlee, an assistant professor of epidemiology at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health, are trying to bring those two approaches into harmony.Greenlee, who focuses on breast cancer, talked with STAT about which alternative approaches are worthwhile, how to choose treatments wisely, and what it’s like to advocate for alternative medicine in a conventional world.advertisement Karen Weintraub Tags acupuncturealternative medicinecancer Heather Greenlee, assistant professor of epidemiology at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health. Molly Ferguson for STAT Are there things cancer patients can do that might reduce their risk of a recurrence?We’re testing a plant-based diet — increasing fruits and vegetables and decreasing fat, red and processed meats, sugars, processed, refined foods. One of our chefs says she’s teaching people to cook like their grandmothers.Do you eat this way yourself?I try! It’s better for cardiovascular disease and diabetes prevention. Also, I just feel better.What inspired you to go into this area of research?My stepfather was diagnosed with a brain tumor when I was pretty young. I quickly saw where the medical system failed him. Seeing how our whole family really suffered through that, I thought there was a lot of room for improvement.You have a PhD in epidemiology as well as a degree in naturopathic medicine. Do you feel like you get less respect than you would if you had an MD?Do conventional medical schools tend to want people to have the degrees they offer? Yes. [But] I work at one of the top public health schools, so I’m able to do the work I want to do.Are you concerned that patients will use alternative treatments instead of conventional ones?There are some pretty wacky things that people do. A lot of patients use integrative therapies out of fear, out of hope, or out of a belief system. But medical decisions need to be made based on facts.But this is challenging for anyone to figure out, regardless of education, no?Steve Jobs [the founder of Apple who died in 2011 after initially choosing to treat his rare cancer with alternative therapies rather than surgery] had access to every single resource in the world, and he still was not making evidence-based decisions about his oncology care.Does this idea that we could be doing something to prevent cancer lead to a blame mentality? That patients who haven’t taken and done everything possible feel like they deserve their illness?We don’t want people to be blaming themselves for not meditating enough. We want them to say, “What are the choices I have in front of me?” There are no guarantees with any of these. There are plenty of people who have pristine diets who still die of cancer.You’re working in a high-stress job in New York City. You must be living under a lot of pressure yourself, no?I need to do more yoga.Heather Greenlee is an assistant professor at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health and a past president of the Society for Integrative Oncology. This interview has been edited and condensed. What are the most effective complementary therapies?There’s a lot of strong evidence on the use of mind-body therapies for things like stress management, anxiety, depression. And there’s a growing body of evidence on acupuncture for pain management.How do you personally hope to change integrative medicine?Historically, integrative therapies have been only available to people who were wealthy.

first_img News North Korea is ramping up COVID-19 disease control efforts ahead of the Eighth Party Congress that is scheduled to be held in January, Daily NK has learned. “The Central Anti-epidemic Committee’s inspection began early this month,” a source in North Hamgyong Province told Daily NK on Monday. “Members of the committee are being dispatched to each region to educate citizens on the specifics of the quarantine orders issued by the government.”Members of the Central Anti-epidemic Committee closely examined the state of the Sinuiju’s disease control measures as well, according to another source in North Pyongan Province. The committee is conducting an intense inspection of COVID-19 prevention measures in the Sino-North Korean border region. The committee’s focus on the border region may be due to the “Hyesan Incident,” a smuggling incident that occurred in Hyesan, Yanggang Province, recently. The committee’s inspectors are reportedly demanding detailed reports from border region residents on even the most trivial or unusual problems and ordering them to strictly adhere to quarantine and the social distancing rules.covid quarantineDisease control officials testing drivers for COVID-19 symptoms in Pyongyang’s Manggyongdae District. / Image: Rodong SinmunLocal doctors have been ordered to check the temperature of households under their care twice a day, and people have recently been required to keep a two-meter distance from each other in the streets, according to sources in the region. The heads of inminban, North Korea’s lowest administrative unit, are keeping close tabs on hygiene among the households they watch over. In practice, this means that inminban heads are checking that people are abiding by quarantine rules and sanitizing their houses and hands four times a day.Locals have reportedly been ordered to make their antiseptic solution from the extract provided by their inminban. One source said that the head of a local inminban told residents under her charge to boil water with half a spoon of salt for two hours if they are running low on antiseptic solution. Inspectors also urged households to add garlic concentrate to their side dishes every day or even to just “sniff it” to prevent infection. They are spreading other unverified disease control information as well, including the claim that “a nation that eats soybean bean paste and kimchi can get out from under this infectious disease.” As North Korean authorities are ramping up COVID-19 disease control efforts, some North Koreans are saying that “it won’t be long before trade is restarted.” Their reasoning behind this is that “[the North Korean authorities] are taking every precaution and readying themselves to be able to immediately handle any issues that arise because they are planning to reopen [the borders] after the Eighth Party Congress.”*Translated by Susan LeePlease direct any comments or questions about this article to [email protected] in Korean Facebook Twitter News SHARE News center_img North Korea Market Price Update: June 8, 2021 (Rice and USD Exchange Rate Only) AvatarLee Chae Un RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Hamhung man arrested for corruption while working at a state-run department store North Korea hikes “party contributions” Russia-based workers must pay by 30-55%last_img read more

first_img Retail trading surge on regulators’ radar, Vingoe says These stocks are being used in classic pump-and-dump schemes in which fraudsters deliberately buy shares of very low-priced, thinly traded stocks and then spread misleading information to pump up the price. Once the price rises, they then dump their shares, leaving investors with worthless stocks. The investor alert highlights tips to help investors avoid scams involving dormant shells. “Fraudsters continue to try to use dormant shell company scams to manipulate stock prices to the detriment of everyday investors,” said Lori Schock, director of the SEC’s Office of Investor Education and Advocacy. “Before investing in any company, investors should always remember to check out the company thoroughly.” Gerri Walsh, FINRA’s senior vice president for investor education, added, “Investors should be on the lookout for press releases, tweets or posts aggressively promoting companies poised for explosive growth because of their ‘hot’ new product. In reality, the company may be a shell, and the people behind the touts may be pump-and-dump scammers looking to lighten your wallet.” James Langton Related news OSC finalizes DSC ban Keywords Fraud,  Investor protectionCompanies Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Securities and Exchange Commission center_img Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Imposters among us, CSA warns U.S. securities regulators have issued a warning about penny stock scams that involve the hyping of dormant shell companies.
