Smaller companies fear they’ll be unable to pass on carbon tax costs: poll

OTTAWA — A large proportion of small- and medium-sized businesses soon to be subjected to Ottawa’s carbon tax worry they’ll be unable to pass along the bulk of the extra costs to their customers, suggests a new survey being released Tuesday.The online survey was completed by 3,527 members of the Canadian Federation of Independent Business in the four provinces — Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and New Brunswick — that will have to follow the Trudeau government’s carbon-pricing system as of April 1.The lobby group has strongly opposed the federal carbon-tax plan out of concern it will pile on too many costs for smaller companies. In fact, more than two-thirds of the business owners that it polled don’t support any kind of carbon pricing program at all.Ottawa says 90 per cent of the carbon-tax revenues it collects will be returned via rebates to households in each of the four provinces. Consumers will get by far the largest share because the government expects them to ultimately pay most of the new costs passed down from businesses.CFIB has some new data coming out soon on how small businesses are feeling about this plan and how much of the consumer rebate they will be financing.— Dan Kelly (@CFIB) February 10, 2019But the findings of CFIB’s poll, conducted in November, suggest there’s concern most smaller companies will be unable to pass along their new costs — meaning these firms will end up subsidizing the rebate program for households, the report said.About 80 per cent of the respondents said they didn’t think it would be easy for them to forward costs on to their customers. The poll found 55 per cent of those surveyed didn’t expect to pass on any of the additional costs, while 25 per cent said they would only be able to pass on less than 25 per cent of the extra costs.“These findings should be deeply worrisome to public policy makers,” said the report, which also repeats CFIB’s concerns the carbon tax will arrive the same year that businesses’ Canada Pension Plan premiums start to rise.“It means small firms will be forced to find the resources to pay the tax from the business itself, which means it may come at the expense of wages, jobs or future business growth.”The Liberals’ carbon tax has generated intense political debate across the country and it’s destined to be a key campaign issue in October’s federal election.The Liberal government has argued pollution is already getting expensive for Canadians as costs from climate-change-related weather events have climbed to more than $1 billion a year. The Liberals believe carbon pricing, which has been in place for years in provinces like British Columbia, Quebec and Ontario, is one of the best ways to lower emissions.The federal climate change action plan also includes efforts to develop clean fuel standards, create new energy-efficiency building codes and phase out electricity generation from coal.The opposition Conservatives have repeatedly called the Liberal plan a “tax grab” that will hurt the bottom lines of small businesses and families, kill jobs and make the country less competitive. Moving forward, the Tories warn carbon-tax bills will only get bigger.READ MORE: Saskatchewan’s carbon tax battle continuesSeveral provincial leaders have also become vocal opponents of the federal program.The regime will be applied to Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and New Brunswick because they don’t have their own carbon-pricing system.Ottawa has said the remaining 10 per cent revenue share from the carbon tax will be dedicated to a program to help organizations, such as schools, that are unable to pass on the costs via higher prices. Part of this portion — worth about $1.5 billion — will also be used to help small- and medium-sized businesses adapt to carbon pricing over the next five years, the government has said.Ottawa has yet to lay out the specifics of this element of its plan.The report noted that some big industrial emitters will pay through a separate system that provides some relief to sectors heavily exposed to foreign competition. Smaller businesses, it added, have not been provided the same relief.READ MORE: Oilpatch wants growth policies from Alberta; carbon price absentCFIB is calling on Ottawa to limit the impact on smaller businesses, including reassurance the same proportion of revenue collected from these firms is returned to them.

On International Day of NonViolence UN envoy voices concern over rise in

“More than a thousand people were killed or injured in attacks – innocent children, mothers, fathers, people from all walks of life, many of them traumatized by the carnage murderers continue to inflict on the Iraqi people,” the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Iraq, Martin Kobler, said in a news release. Citing official figures, Mr Kobler – who also heads the UN Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI) – noted that September 2012 was the deadliest month in Iraq in more than two years. In a recent incident, according to media reports, four children were killed when a suicide car bomb exploded near their school in the western province of Anbar. Some of the young victims were reportedly just starting the first grade.Earlier in September, a series of attacks in 11 cities killed more than 50 people and injured more than 200 others. The attacks reportedly targeted Iraqi security forces, police recruits and markets, and involved both bombs and attacks by gunmen.“I call on every man and woman in this country to categorically reject these acts of violence, which cannot be justified in any way,” Mr. Kobler continued, adding his call for the Government of Iraq “to address the root causes of the violence and ensure a truly inclusive political process that respects the views and interests of all communities in Iraq.” read more

Bigamist forged letter from his mosque claiming to be a bachelor court

Prosecuting, Paul Cummings, described how his client first met Lorgat on a flight to Madrid when he showed “great interest in the her”. They later spent some time together in Paris before she returned to her native Morocco.They stayed in contact through texts and phone calls before he visited Morocco in 2001, where her parents were inquisitive about the defendant’s background and the father asked him to provide some proof he was not married.

Show more In a statement, Miss Benjelloun who is in her 40s said: “In 2001, I met him when I was working for my father’s company and I was travelling and working in Belgium. A bigamist who forged a letter from his mosque in order to marry a devout Muslim has been jailed for not telling her that he already had a wife.Haroon Lorgat, 52, met Nadia Benjelloun on a business trip in 2001 and after a “whirlwind romance”, they wed a year later.Unbeknown to her, the businessman had already been married twice and the divorce to the second woman was only finalised in 2004, by which time they already had a child together. In the months before he married Miss Benjelloun, Lorgat from Blackburn, Lancashire, had provided her parents with a forged letter claiming to be from the Lancashire Council of Mosques – falsely saying he was still a bachelor after they raised doubts over his past. –– ADVERTISEMENT ––In another act of deceit, it emerged he used the divorce papers from his first marriage in the 1980s to convince the registrar that he was legally clear to marry for a third time. To add to her strife, Miss Benjelloun claimed she is currently owed £20,000 which she was given as a health insurance payout having been diagnosed with cancer. Her husband is accused of transferring it to his bank account. The truth only emerged when Moroccan-born teacher Miss Benjelloun broke up with Lorgat when he became violent. She is now battling to get a divorce, and Lorgat was jailed for six months at Preston Crown Court on Tuesday after he admitted bigamy.  Nadia Benjelloun’s graduation photographCredit:Cavendish Press Nadia Benjelloun leaves Preston Crown CourtCredit:Ricky Champagne/Cavendish Press Mr Cummings told the court: “He had a letter from the Lancashire Council of Mosques. The letter said that he was not married and had never been married.”The family of the complainant were provided with this forged document and thought he was legitimate and suitable to be married. As a result they went through a Muslim wedding and then a civil wedding in Accrington in July 2002.”Following the marriage in Accrington, he did apply for divorce from his current wife but that did not happen until the decree absolute in 2004.”The complainant did not know that the defendant was married and remained oblivious to this fact for 10 years.”During this time, she had two children with the defendant in 2003 and 2005. She only discovered the fact of the other marriage when she petitioned for divorce in 2012.” Nadia Benjelloun's graduation photograph “She says on one occasion that she was with her friend in Blackburn and the defendant took a picture of the friend, posted it on Facebook and asked for her identity.”She said that when she found out about his other marriage, she was remorseful, shocked and angry.” But Judge Simon Medland QC told Lorgat: “This is a case with a number of very serious aspects. Firstly, the deception of Ms Benjelloun and her family. It is clear to me that if you had been candid about your marriage, she would not have married you.”In order to maintain that the marriage would happen, you produced a bogus letter saying that you have never been married and gave it to Miss Benjelloun’s family.”As a result, she married you and two children came out of that. The marriage was not a success and impact this has had on your wife is very severe.”She has described a history of manipulative control and if she knew about your previous marriage she would not have married you in the first place.” At a previous hearing solicitor Jonathan Taylor mitigated for Lorgat and said his client had “fallen in love” and “a whirlwind romance” resulted in the Islamic wedding in Morocco.”He accepts that he entered into the civil marriage without bringing to an end the second marriage,” the lawyer added. “He had fallen in love with the lady and didn’t want anything to happen to stop them being together. The only benefit he got from this was to be able to live with the woman who, at the time, he loved.” “He was insistent and persuasive and he visited me at my parents several times when I was living in Marrakech.”I found it weird that he wasn’t married and had no children at his age, but I believed him and so did my parents after he produced the letter from the Lancashire Council of Mosques.”I found out later that he did deceive me and he had been married on two previous occasions and that letter was not true.””I have been looking after the two children and have cancer. The lies and deceit have caused me anxiety, depression and panic attacks. I am unable to move on with my life until the marriage is over and I need a divorce.  He has not agreed to a divorce in the Islamic religion and he continues to prolong these proceedings.” Nadia Benjelloun leaves Preston Crown Court Mr Cummings added: “Following the diagnosis of cancer, she received some money from health insurance and he somehow moved that money into his account.”There was some money that he took and she says that he owes her somewhere in the region of £20,000.”The prosecution makes the submission that she would not have married the defendant in the first place if she knew about his previous marriage and she says that he was violent and controlling. The court heard Lorgat had been convicted of assaulting Miss Benjelloun in 2010 and was given a community order. In mitigation defence counsel Neil Howard, said: “He accepts that he deceived her and her family from the offset in 2002.”He did initially take steps to divorce his second wife in 2001. He had already paid the solicitors but the divorce didn’t go through.”I do not intend on getting into an argument over finances, but he says that he pays the mortgage on their house.”He is a gentleman that has a great deal to lose. He is an industrious man with a business and two children. He owns a business in the furnishing industry with nine members of staff. All of them are aware of the current situation and it has been very stressful for him.”He has done extensive charity work since 2012 and in my submission he is an upstanding citizen.” read more

MacLean electric fleet at Goldcorp Borden to reach 14 units in 2018

first_imgThe electrification of mobile fleets in underground mining was kicked off in earnest in Canada when Goldcorp decided to move their Borden exploration project forward as an all-electric mine. MacLean was honoured to be chosen as one of the two suppliers to this project in 2016, at this point a bulk sample ramp advancing at some 4 to 5 m per day. The mine of the future will indeed be all-electric, and it will also have a smaller geographic footprint, industry-leading water management practices, and partnerships with the local First Nation communities.“Our first five battery electric units arrived at Borden in April of 2017, two bolters, an emulsion loader cassette, a boom truck cassette and a scissor lift, with nine more MacLean EV units to be shipped in 2018, including a blockholer, the first of our Ore Flow suite to be electrified. In total, we put seven EV units underground in 2017 and we have orders that will double this in 2018.”MacLean adds: “The EV mine upside of zero emissions, lower total cost of ownership, and reduced ventilation requirements are simply too compelling for mining companies to ignore much longer. Glencore’s two cornerstone Sudbury basin expansion projects – Onaping Depth and Nickel Rim Deep – are case in point in this transition to diesel-free mines to leverage ventilation savings and reduced infrastructure costs, along with the benefits of exhaust-free and lower maintenance fleets. Full-fleet electrification will be available by the end of 2018, but we know this is just the first step to aligning our company to what our customers need and expect. We moved rapidly into the EV propulsion space because we saw the business drivers the industry was facing – heat and ventilation requirementsbecoming a prohibitive cost with a diesel combustion fleet, where the only economic way to access increasingly hard-to-reach ore bodies is through the introduction of electric vehicles, reducing ventilation and equipment maintenance costs and providing a work environment free of diesel fine particulate matter.”last_img read more

Vancouver massage therapist sentenced to nearly 7½ years

first_imgMurmurs of approval rippled through the courtroom as the judge handed down a nearly 7½-year sentence Friday to a Vancouver massage therapist who inappropriately touched more than a dozen female clients.Valentin Delgado, 41, pleaded with Clark County Superior Court Judge Robert Lewis to have “compassion and mercy” on him, and said a lengthy sentence would only harm his family’s livelihood.Lewis said he could not overlook the number of women Delgado victimized, the fact that he abused a position of trust or that he’s shown little accountability for his actions.“It’s clear still you’re in deep denial. … It’s always someone else’s fault,” he told Delgado.Delgado pleaded guilty in July to three counts of indecent liberties without forcible compulsion, bail jumping and 10 counts of fourth-degree assault with sexual motivation. He victimized 13 clients, some who were pregnant, according to the prosecution.However, when it came time for sentencing, Delgado requested to withdraw his guilty plea and argued that his attorney at the time had coerced him into taking a plea deal.last_img read more

Nearly 1 Billion Needed To Modernize Rural Sanitation Systems

first_imgMembers of the Legislative Bush Caucus were told last week in a “Lunch and Learn” session on rural sanitation almost a billion dollars is needed to build, replace, and maintain rural sanitation systems. But, the gap between the level of need and funding is widening.Download AudioState and tribal representatives told members of the Bush Caucus it would take about $900 million to do what’s needed to bring modern sanitation to all Alaskans.Last year the state put about $9 million and federal agencies put $51 million toward rural sanitation in Alaska. The combined $60 million is less than half of allocations 10 years ago.David Beveridge, the director of project management at the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium, or ANTHC, says Alaska is competing with other states for its share of a shrinking pool of federal funding.“If you look through the village safe water program, it gets matched with federal dollars on a 25-75 percent ratio,” Beveridge said. “So for any 25 dollars the federal government will kick in the 75 dollars. So that’s been a big component of the funding in Alaska and that’s gone down.”The issue is one of public health, according to Bill Griffith, the Facility Program Manager for Village Safe Water with the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation. He told Legislators recent studies show Alaskans without clean water and flush toilets experience dramatically higher rates of hospitalization for respiratory diseases such as pneumonia.“Those rates were anywhere from 5 times greater to 11 times greater in villages in Alaska with less than 10 percent of homes served,” Griffith said.And Griffith says, a significant number of Alaskan communities are un-served or under-served.“There’s about 30 villages around the state that don’t have running water and sewer to any homes, coupled with about a dozen or so communities that have what we call small haul systems where they use trailers to bring water to homes and then they use different trailers to pick up sewage,” he said.Climate change is adding to the magnitude of the issue.“We’re at Noatak right now where part of the ground under the water plant is frozen and part of it is becoming unfrozen,” Gavin Dixon, who manages a Rural Energy Initiative for ANTHC, said. “There’s 15-inches of differential in the facility. So the building is cracking, and falling apart. So it’s an issue that’s happening now and it’s happening in a lot of different communities.”Dixon says energy audits show that investments of an average of $80,000 per community for little fixes would return much more in energy cost savings in just four or five years. He says those savings in energy costs would boost local economies and cut state spending for power cost equalization subsidies.Rep. Neal Foster, of Nome, says improving rural sanitation would boost the state’s economy. And he says Legislators would create an uproar if they experienced the same conditions.“Boy, if we ever took every toilet out of this building, you know it would be a revolution we wouldn’t stand for, people, essentially living in a third-world type situation,” Foster said. “So I think it’s something that needs to be made a priority. I think that we have to bring people at the lowest rungs up before we can move forward as a state.”Agencies and tribes are collaborating to improve operator training and reduce operation costs. And they working with the private sector to create innovative designs well suited to Arctic conditions.last_img read more

As the US moves to open ANWR to drilling Canada says not

first_imgThe Porcupine Caribou herd in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge’s coastal plain. (Photo courtesy U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service)Congress has voted to allow oil development in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, but drilling opponents haven’t given up. As part of their strategy going forward, they’re looking beyond Washington, D.C. and across the U.S.-Canada border for support.Listen nowCanada has a long history of opposing oil development in ANWR. That opposition comes down to the caribou.“If there is development in this area and when we do lose the caribou, that will be a significant channel of life that will have dried up and shut down forever,” Dana Tizya-Tramm, a Vuntut Gwitchin council member in Canada’s Yukon Territory, said. “My people will remember the death of the caribou and the death of this area for thousands of years.”The Porcupine Caribou Herd migrates into Canada and is hunted by the Gwitchin who live there. Like the Gwich’in in Alaska, Tizya-Tramm believes any disturbance of the herd’s calving grounds in the refuge is a threat to his community.This is not a new issue. In 1987, the United States signed a treaty with Canada, requiring both countries to “avoid or minimize activities” that would disrupt the Porcupine Caribou Herd. Now, as the Trump administration pursues oil development in the Refuge, Tizya-Tramm said the agreement means the U.S. is obligated to consult with Canada before it drills there.“We really have a legitimate voice here…that belongs in this issue,” Tizya-Tramm said.Canada’s leadership agrees — its position is that the Porcupine Caribou Herd’s habitat should be permanently protected. In an emailed statement, Colin Shonk, a spokesperson for the Canadian Embassy, said, “the federal, territorial and Indigenous governments in Canada are united in their commitment to conservation of the herd and its habitat.”“We remain committed to the implementation of the 1987 Agreement between Canada and the U.S. to protect the herd,” Shonk said.Environmental groups in the U.S. see the treaty as a way to stall the push for oil development in the refuge.“Certainly the Canadians have made it clear that they expect the treaty to be observed and implemented,” Mike Anderson, a lawyer with the Wilderness Society in Seattle, said. “This is not what necessarily the Trump administration wants, in terms of their rushed timeline.”Anderson said if the U.S. abides by the treaty, it will have to take a careful look at potential impacts on the Porcupine Herd. And that, he hopes, will spur Congress to reconsider whether drilling should be allowed. But Anderson acknowledges the treaty has limits — he said the final decision will be up to the U.S.Jutta Brunnée, a professor and an expert in international environmental law with the University of Toronto, agrees. Brunnée says the agreement is legally binding, and its strength lies in the requirement for the U.S. to “promptly” consult with Canada if the herd is significantly harmed.Canada is entitled to consultation, but “that’s, I think, as far as we can take it,” Brunnée said. “There is no commitment that either side makes that they would stop development.”That said, American supporters of oil development in ANWR are not unconcerned about Canadian interference. To the dismay of Alaska’s congressional delegation, Canadian representatives in Washington, D.C., lobbied against the provision in last year’s Tax Bill that opened up the refuge to drilling. Senator Dan Sullivan said, in response, he called the Canadian ambassador for what he referred to as “a very frank discussion.”“And the first thing I said was, ‘Ambassador, I’m not sure you understand what your own country’s interests are,’” Sullivan said.Sullivan said he told the Canadian Ambassador that Alaska’s congressional delegation is “the most pro-Canada delegation in Congress.” Then, Sullivan said, he told the Canadian ambassador to cease and desist the lobbying campaign.In later meetings with Canadian officials, Sullivan said he passed along this message:“We’re of course going to work with Canada, but this kind of action undermines your own country’s interest. Because we’re going to remember it,” Sullivan said.True to his word, Sullivan said he’s preparing to introduce a bill related to the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund — a fund that oil producers must pay in to, used to cover the cost of oil spill cleanups.“And there was always a glitch — always…in some ways, a loophole, that Canadian tar sands that comes across the border into the United States, produced in Alberta, has never had to pay that fee,” Sullivan said. “Well, I think we should close that loophole.”Asked if the bill will be in direct response to Canada’s lobbying actions last year, Sullivan said the move was under consideration before Canada opposed the ANWR provision.But, the Senator added, “let’s just put it — we were thinking about it. We hadn’t made a final decision. And their actions certainly helped us make the final decision.”Like many proponents of drilling in ANWR, Sullivan said he believes the Porcupine Caribou Herd can stay healthy alongside oil development, if it’s done responsibly.But Sullivan also didn’t dismiss the fact that the U.S. has an obligation to uphold the 1987 treaty. So Canada could ultimately take its seat at the table — but whether it can convince the U.S. to stop oil development in ANWR is a much taller order.last_img read more

Activision Blizzard acquires Candy Crush maker King for 59 billion

first_imgBobby Kotick has secured the position of largest interactive entertainment company for Activision Blizzard’s this week by acquiring King Digital Entertainment, and with it taking control of Candy Crush Saga as well as a growing list of other Saga games.Kotick has agreed to pay $18 per share for King’s stock, which is 20% more than what they were trading at on the market. In total, Activision Blizzard is therefore paying $5.9 billion for the company, easily making this the biggest gaming acquisition in 2015 and probably for some time to come. That is, of course, if it is cleared by antitrust authorities with an expected completion in the spring next year.Kotick has commented that the King acquisition pushes the company’s active user base past 500 million every month and expands the device reach for any future games. 60% of King’s regular players are female, which also allows Activision Blizzard more scope for new mobile and Facebook titles in the future.When you look at the intellectual property and game releases the company now controls, it’s hard to argue with Kotick’s claim of largest entertainment company. Call of Duty, Destiny, Skylanders, World of Warcraft, StarCraft, Diablo, Hearthstone, Guitar Hero, and now the Saga games make for a very strong portfolio going forward. Even so, spending nearly $6 billion for what is effectively a match-3 games company looks very expensive whichever way you look at it.King has over 1,400 employees spread across 8 games studios located in Stockholm, Bucharest, Malmö, London, Barcelona, Berlin, Singapore, and Seattle as well as 5 offices in San Francisco, Malta, Seoul, Tokyo, and Shanghai. Although there’s no details from either company yet, some of those locations may now close down and jobs will be lost. Employees will likely have to wait until the acquisition is complete to find out if their positions are secure.last_img read more

Xbox Game Pass Coming to PC So Why Have an Xbox

first_imgStay on target Update: Microsoft has confirmed that Xbox Game Pass is coming to PC. At E3 we’ll hear even more details about how Windows players can enjoy hundred of games through the popular subscription service. PC gaming fans should also appreciate that Microsoft is bringing even more of its games to Steam, as well as supporting Win32 games on Windows 10, as part of its larger commitment to openness. They just teamed up with Sony for crying out loud. Although it may be bad for the corporate bottom line, when a video game platform holder doesn’t do as well as they’d hope they tend to launch bold new initiatives to lure players back in. And the results are cool new features for gamers to enjoy. The PlayStation 4 wouldn’t have been this accessible without the PlayStation 3’s hubris. The Nintendo Switch’s concept wouldn’t have been so clear if the Wii U wasn’t so confusing.And one of the best ongoing examples of this trend is Microsoft’s treatment of the Xbox One. Although the Xbox 360 was very successful, it taught Redmond the wrong lessons like people want Kinect and invasive home entertainment connections and no way to play used games. But in trying to catch up with the PS4 the Xbox One has become way cooler with functionality like backwards compatibility and the ultra-powerful Xbox One X, the best way to play Red Dead Redemption 2. And soon one of the best recent Xbox One perks, Xbox Game Pass, can be yours even if you don’t have an Xbox. The subscription service is also coming to PC.As there are more and more video games just out in the world, players dream about a Netflix-style subscription service where they can just access the entire library at once to play whenever they see fit. And since last year, Xbox Game Pass has been just that, granting subscribers online access to 100 Xbox games (including very big games like Forza Horizon 4 the day they come out) for just $10 per month. At a quarterly earnings call Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said the service will also be coming to Windows PCs at some point.For players, this is nothing but good news. It gives millions more people the chance to use a truly great gaming service without having to buy an extra piece of hardware. But it is weird that Microsoft is giving people another excuse not to buy that hardware. Couple this with an increasing amount of Microsoft games being cross-buy on both Xbox and PC and you figure even Microsoft doesn’t see the current Xbox as the centerpiece of its gaming plans. Or maybe this is all just a planned lull before Microsoft really rallies behind the next-generation Xbox surely coming soon.For more on Xbox, before it becomes redundant, check out the best original Xbox games and how to connect an Xbox controller to PC.

Integrated Gate Commutated Thyristor IGCT Market Global Industry Size Market Share

first_imgIncreased usage of power electronics in renewable energy sources, lower conduction loss as compared to GTO and IGBT, and better performance at high temperature drive the growth of the global IGCT market. However, bulky structure of thyristor and complex manufacturing process hamper the market growth. On the other hand, increasing use of power semiconductor devices in hybrid vehicles and invention of high-power technology (HPT) platform are expected to create lucrative opportunities for the market players in the coming years.Reverse Blocking IGCTS Segment to Grow the Fastest through 2024: The reverse blocking IGCTs segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR of 8.5% during the study period, owing to benefits of reverse blocking IGCTs in CSI over GTO or thyristor solutions such as high inverter ratings and switching frequency. However, the asymmetric IGCTs segment held the largest market share in 2017, contributing about two-thirds of the total revenue. This is owing to the growing need for higher frequency operation in motor drives and energy management systems along with burgeoning demand for high average current in circuit breakers. In addition, the reverse conducting IGCTs segment is expected to witness gradual growth during the study period.Download Sample Report: Segment to Witness the Fastest CAGR By 2024: The converters segment is estimated to manifest the fastest 9% CAGR from 2018 to 2024 due to their ability to offer a power rating of up to 15 MVA without the need of series or parallel connection of power semiconductor devices alongside ensuring that the part count is minimum. However, the drives segment held the largest share in 2017, contributing about 35% of the total revenue.

Oracle Apex 181 is here

first_imgOracle announced the much awaited Oracle Apex 18.1 today. Oracle Application Express is a free development tool by Oracle. It allows developers to create web-based applications quickly by using a web browser on an Oracle database. With Oracle Apex 18.1, Oracle provides easy integration of data from the REST services with data taken from the SQL queries within an Oracle database to build scalable applications. The new release also includes high-quality features for creating applications without the need of coding. Let’s have a look at some of the major features and improvements in Oracle Apex 18.1. Key features and updates Application features High-level application features such as access control, email reporting, feedback, activity reporting, dynamic user interface selection, etc, can be added to your app. An application can also be created with “cards” report interface, a timeline report as well as a dashboard. REST enabled SQL support Apex 18.1 allows you to build charts, calendars, reports, and trees. You can also invoke certain processes against Oracle REST Data Services (ORDS) -provided REST Enabled SQL Services. There is no need for a database link to include data from other remote database objects within your APEX application. REST Enabled SQL gets it all done for you. Web Source Modules Different REST endpoints can be used to declaratively access data such as ordinary REST data feeds, REST services from Oracle REST data services as well as Oracle Cloud Applications REST services. It provides the ability to influence REST data sources results using industry standard SQL. REST Workshop Updates have been made to the REST workshop. Apart from helping with creating REST services against Oracle database objects, the new REST workshop comes with an added ability to generate Swagger documentation against REST definitions with just a button click. Application Builder Improvements Oracle Apex 18.1 allows developers to create components quickly as wizards are now streamlined with fewer steps and smarter defaults. Usability enhancements have been made to Page Designer. This includes advanced color palette and graphics on page elements as well as to Sticky Filter which improves developers’ productivity. Social Authentication Oracle APEX 18.1 comes with a native authentication scheme and social sign-in. It is possible for developers to create applications in APEX using authentication methods such as Oracle Identity Cloud Service, Facebook, Google, generic OAuth2  and generic OpenID Connect without coding. Charts Oracle JET 4.2 engine is a new feature to the APEX 18.1. It consists of updated charts as well as APIs. It also comes with different types of charts such as Box-Plot, Gantt, and Pyramid. These provide support for multi-series sparse data sets.

Astronomers find farthest galaxy 131 billion lightyears

first_img Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Because when astronomers look farther away from Earth, they are looking back further in time, this is both the most distant galaxy and the furthest back in time. It’s 13.1 billion light-years away, in the constellation Bootes. A light-year is 5.8 trillion miles.This beats the old record by about 30 million years, which isn’t much, but was difficult to achieve, said astronomer Garth Illingworth of the University of California Santa Cruz, who co-authored the paper in Astrophysical Journal Letters announcing the discovery.The photo they took was from a crucial time in the early universe, after what was called the Dark Ages, when galaxies and stars were just starting to form and the universe was only one five hundredth the mass it is now, Illingworth said.This galaxy — larger than most of the others from that time, which is why astronomers using the most powerful telescopes can see it now — was probably only about 100 million years old, but it was quite busy, Illingworth said.“We’re looking here at an infant that’s growing at a great rate,” he said. The galaxy was giving birth to stars at 80 times the rate our Milky Way does now. “These objects would like nothing like our sun. It would look much, much bluer.” Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Top Stories Comments   Share   5 people who need to visit the Ultrastar Multi-tainment Center New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies WASHINGTON (AP) — Astronomers have discovered a baby blue galaxy that is farther away in distance and time than any galaxy ever seen. It’s among the universe’s first generation of galaxies, from 13.1 billion years ago.Yale and University of California Santa Cruz scientists used three different telescopes to spot and then calculate the age of the blurry infant galaxy. By measuring how the light has shifted, they determined the galaxy, called EGS-zs8-1, is from about 670 million years after the Big Bang. Sponsored Stories Yale astronomer Pascal Oesch was looking through Hubble Space Telescope images in 2013 when he saw a bright object. He then used the Spitzer space telescope to see it again. The hardest work was confirming the age and distance using the ground-based Keck Observatory in Hawaii to separate light waves.___Hubble: Borenstein can be followed at © The Associated Press.

Meeting with TV critics Wednesday to discuss a new HBO documentary on her life, she expressed regret for that moment.She said it was thoughtless to perch on the gun and called it “horrible” to think about the message her action sent to soliders and their families, she said.It was an earlier meeting with U.S. soliders in Paris that sparked her activism, Fonda said. Her belief that America always fought on “the side of the angels” was shaken by what she heard and later read.Her late father, the famed actor Henry Fonda, was a World War II veteran and Jane Fonda had served as “Miss Army Recruiter” in 1954.She felt betrayed and lied to by America’s leadership over the war and decided she would do everything possible to help stop it as part of a movement, Fonda said.At age 80, Fonda looks back at her life in HBO’s “Jane Fonda in Five Acts,” from director-producer Susan Lacy and debuting this fall. Fonda continues to work, starring opposite Lily Tomlin on the Netflix series “Grace and Frankie” and working with Tomlin and Dolly Parton on a sequel to their hit 1980 movie “9 to 5.”The new take on women’s mistreatment in the workplace will have to address how the situation is worse today in some regards, including treatment of contract workers, or she won’t be in it, Fonda said.On the bright side, Fonda said she expects to see sexual harassment decline “because guys are scared.” Jane Fonda speaks during the “Jane Fonda in Five Acts” panel during the HBO Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour at The Beverly Hilton hotel on Wednesday, July 25, 2018, in Beverly Hills, Calif.
