Co-Chair, Economic Programme Oversight Committee (EPOC), Richard Byles, is expressing confidence that Jamaica will get a positive seventh quarter assessment from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), when it conducts its review for the October to December period.This, he says, is based on the country meeting IMF targets for two of the key performance criteria, the primary surplus and net international reserves (NIR) for the period between April and December of fiscal year 2014/15.Speaking at EPOC’s monthly media briefing in New Kingston on February 5,Mr. Byles said the cumulative primary surplus for the period came out at $66.6 billion, to exceed the $66 billion target.While noting that revenue inflows declined by $9.7 billion, due to shortfalls, particularly in December, on corporate tax and general consumption tax (GCT), down $6.6 billion and $6.7 billion, respectively, Mr. Byles said inflows from PAYE and tax on interest continued to exceed budgeted targets.“The PAYE is above target by $2 billion, and that trend, we saw from earlier in the year. The tax on interest also is above target (by) $1.5 billion. The March quarter is when most, if not all, corporations have to lodge their tax returns. So, we look forward, with expectation, at what that tax number will be,” the EPOC Co-Chair said.He advised that the Ministry of Finance and Planning has agreed to EPOC’s request to ask Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) to attend the next EPOC meeting in March, “to speak about their efforts at tax compliance.”Regarding public expenditure to date, Mr. Byles said these remain below the$15.2 billion budget, despite a $2.4 billion over-expenditure in December.“(This), it was explained to us, had to do with the health sector reclassification programme, which is in its third year. So, payments were made in December on that programme,” he noted.As it relates to the NIR, Mr. Byles said this was at US$2 billion at the end of December 2014 pointed out that this is “considerably above the US$1.26 billion that was the target.”On other matters, Mr. Byles informed that net remittance inflows between January and October 2014, totalled approximately US$1.6 billion.This, he pointed out, represented a US$90.4 million or six per cent increase over the corresponding period in 2013, and the largest inflow reported by the Bank of Jamaica since 2011.Additionally, he said the trade deficit between January and October 2014, narrowed by US$143 million, or 3.8 per cent, to reach US$3.58 billion, down from US$3.72 billion the previous year.Data provided showed that merchandise imports fell by US$250 million or 4.9 per cent, to US$4.8 billion in 2014, compared to 2013. Additionally, export earnings fell by US$106 million or eight per cent, to US$1.22 billion.Other key areas highlighted by Mr. Byles included: increased cruise ship and stop- over visitor arrivals, up 12.5 and 3.6 per cent, respectively, for the calendar year; 2014 calendar year end inflation of 6.4 per cent, with the 2014/15 fiscal year-to-date figure between April and December, coming out at 4.6 per cent; and an increase of 14,000 in the number of persons employed, as at October 2014, compared to 2013, as reported by the Statistical Institute of Jamaica (STATIN).“I think that the economy is recovering and growing stronger. (In that regard) I would say we are pleased with the performance of the economy, thus far,” Mr. Byles said.

aijohn784/iStock(COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa) — Ten years after an Iowa man mysteriously disappeared, his body was discovered wedged behind a cooler in a vacant grocery store where he used to work, police said.In 2009, Larry Ely Murillo-Moncada was a 25-year-old working at a No Frills Supermarket store in Council Bluffs,Iowa, said Council Bluffs police officials.On Nov. 28, 2009, Murillo-Moncada’s parents reported him missing, telling authorities that their son “became upset and ran out of their home,” said police.He was never seen alive again.A decade later, on Jan. 24, 2019, crews were removing shelving and coolers at the now-vacant grocery store and discovered a body, said police.Last week Council Bluffs police learned from the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation that the body was identified as Murillo-Moncada, police officials announced Monday.Investigators believe Murillo-Moncada left home, went to the grocery store, climbed on the coolers, and then fell into a roughly 18-inch gap between the back of the cooler and the wall and became trapped, said police.The death has been classified as accidental, police said. His autopsy indicates no signs of trauma, said police.Former employees said it was common for workers to be on top of the grocery store’s coolers because the space was used for storage, according to police.The grocery store closed in 2016, according to Omaha ABC affiliate KETV.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

As Kotaku pointed out, his videos contained many controversial opinions, including defences of public figures accused of sexual misconduct, and qualified support of the fundamentally misogynist GameGate movement.These positions were compounded by Leavitt’s proximity to the Harry Potter IP, the creator of which, J K Rowling, has been widely criticised for her statements about the trans community.In a recent op-ed, Brendan Sinclair explored the link between Leavitt’s views and those of Rowling, and the nature of “cancel culture” — you can read it here.

Twitter Facebook Twitter Pinterest (Photo supplied/ABC 57) (Tyler Sebree/ABC 57 News) A strong cold front will swing through the Midwest and Great Lakes late Thursday into Thursday night. Ahead of it will exist the potential for numerous thunderstorms, some of which could very become strong to severe.Zoomed in look at Thursday’s severe weather threat zoneVigorous thunderstorm development is expected around 4 p.m. across parts of Iowa, Wisconsin and Michigan. Those storms will likely form in a rough line just ahead of the cold front.As the evening progresses, the line of storms will push southeastward into Illinois, southern Michigan and eventually northern Indiana. A few scattered storms may form ahead of the main line, but that remains to be seen.Potential radar at 6 p.m. EDT ThursdayThe main severe weather “threat zone” stretches from northern Missouri and southeastern Iowa into northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin. That’s where a level 2-of-5 “slight risk” has been highlighted by the Storm Prediction Center.Those areas have the highest threat of severe thunderstorms capable of damaging winds, large hail, heavy rain, lightning, and perhaps a tornado or two.Potential radar at 10 p.m. EDT ThursdayThat’s because the storms will be in those locations while the sun is still up. In other words, the best ingredients will be in place in those regions. In Michiana, the storms will likely not arrive until after 8-9 p.m. EDT. That means we will be losing daylight, warmth and energy as the storms roll in.As a result, northern Indiana and much of Michigan are only under a level 1-of-5 “marginal risk” of severe weather. Regardless of the threat level being lower, the risk for a few strong to severe thunderstorms is certainly there Thursday evening.Threats for northern Indiana, northeast Illinois and most of MichiganThings could change a bit, but confidence in at least some storms moving through parts of Michiana after 8 p.m. is pretty good. Not everyone will see storms, but there will be some.Areas with the best chance of storms — including severe storms — are west of U.S. 31 and north of U.S. 30. That would include the following locations:Indiana: Michigan City, La Porte, New Carlisle, South Bend, Mishawaka, Elkhart, Goshen, KnoxMichigan: Benton Harbor, St. Joseph, New Buffalo, Niles, Dowagiac, Cassopolis, Edwardsburg, Marcellus, Three Rivers, Sturgis Strong to severe storms possible late Thursday Google+ Facebook WhatsApp By Jon Zimney – August 29, 2019 0 360 WhatsApp Pinterest Google+
With world junior champion Kanako Murakami moving up to the senior ranks this season, there may have been some trepidation in Japanese skating circles about who would represent the next wave of young talent among the ladies.Those folks have to worry no more, as 14-year-old Risa Shoji burst onto the international scene with a victory in her debut at the SBC Cup Junior Grand Prix in Karuizawa, Nagano Prefecture, last weekend. Shoji won both the short program and free skate on the way to racking up a total of 149.39 points in a comprehensive triumph. The Tokyo native beat American second-place finisher Kiri Baga (138.70) by more than 10 points. China’s Kexin Zhang (134.08) came in third.Japan had two other finishers in the top eight — Shion Kokubun (128.20) was fifth and Karen Kemanai (109.96) eighth.Shoji, who is coached by Naoki Shigematsu, performed to “Libertango” in the short program and “The Lake House” from the movie “The Cider House Rules” in her free skate.The junior high school student, who began skating at age 6, represents the Seibu Higashifushimi Figure Skating Club. She finished 10th at the Japan Junior Championships last season.Though she clearly has some big skates to fill, Shoji’s effort in Karuizawa bodes well for the future.Trophy case grows: Two-time world champion and 2010 Olympic silver medalist Mao Asada added another honor to her ever-growing list this week when she was named the Tokyo American Club’s Sportswoman of the Year.Mao, who turned 20 on Sept. 25, joins an impressive list of previous recipients that includes Olympic gold medal marathoners Naoko Takahashi (2001) and Mizuki Noguchi (2005), two-time Olympic gold medal judoka Ryoko Tamura (1996) and tennis star Kimiko Date (1994).The TAC’s Jeff McNeill hit the nail on the head with his comment on Mao: “She is an outstanding sportswoman and a wonderful role model for aspiring athletes in Japan.”New partnership: Mao and new coach Nobuo Sato held an open practice and news conference in Nagoya on Sept. 26. One of the interesting items that emerged was that Sato is interested in having Mao occasionally practice with male skaters.“I think it would be good stimulation for her to practice with a male skater,” Sato told the Asahi Shimbun.Sato, who was elected to the World Figure Skating Hall of Fame early this year, said that even though he has been coaching for 40 years he was a bit intimidated by the prospect of taking on a two-time world champion in Mao.Staying cool: Miki Ando and coach Nikolai Morozov trained in Latvia for several weeks to escape the record heat wave that gripped Moscow for much of the summer.Ando is representing Japan, along with Mao, world champion Daisuke Takahashi and Kozuka, in the Japan Open at Saitama Super Arena this weekend. Japan takes on teams from Europe (led by Evgeni Plushenko) and North America (featuring Joannie Rochette) in the invitational event. One to watch: Fourteen-year-old Risa Shoji was victorious in her international debut at the SBC Cup Junior Grand Prix in Karuizawa, Nagano Prefecture, last weekend. | KYODO PHOTO GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5 RELATED PHOTOS

(Missourinet) A workforce development package has been signed into law that aims to court a $1 billion expansion at the General Motors factory in eastern Missouri’s Wentzville. During a ceremony today at the state Capitol in Jefferson City, Gov. Mike Parson signed his name on the dotted line to make the legislation official.Sen. Lincoln Hough, R-Springfield, sponsored Senate Bill 68, which gives $5 million in annual tax credits over 10 years to carmakers investing at least $750 million in Missouri plant upgrades. It would give tax credits earlier in a business expansion. The plan also includes the governor’s Fast Track program that would provide financial aid for people seeking high demand fields.Supporters of the package say it would keep jobs and bring more jobs to Missouri. Opponents of the measure call it a handout with no promise of keeping a certain number of jobs.In a statement today from Darri’n Hardy with General Motors, the company says today’s action is a step in the right direction. She says GM is still evaluating the overall business case for this potential project and has no announcements to make at this time.

zoomVIRGIN STAR (first ship from the left) after its arrival in Chattogram; Image Courtesy: NGO Shipbreaking Platform An accident at the shipbreaking beach of Chattogram, Bangladesh, has taken the lives of two workers, while another thirteen suffered severe injuries, the NGO Shipbreaking Platform said.The accident occurred in the afternoon hours of August 31 at Ziri Subedar shipbreaking yard during scrapping operations on the ship CSL Virginia.NGO Shipbreaking Platform said that a heavy cable collapsed on the ship, hitting several workers at once. The injured workers were transported to Chattogram Medical College Hospital for treatment. Following the accident, local authorities ordered the temporary closure of the yard.Relevant officials have launched an investigation into the matter.So far this year, fifteen shipbreaking workers have lost their lives in Chattogram.“It’s sad that our regulatory authorities had to wait for deaths of seven workers and grievous injuries of fifteen in a row of seven incidences in this yard alone since 2011,” Rizwana Hasan, Chief Executive of the Bangladesh Environmental Lawyers Association (BELA) and Platform’s board member, said.The container ship CSL Virginia, beached in Bangladesh in February 2019, was owned and managed by Andreas Hadjiyiannis’ Cyprus Sea Lines, NGO Shipbreaking Platform cited shipping media.The vessel was sent to the scrapyard after its fuel tanks were breached in a collision with a Tunisian ferry off Corsica in October 2018.
Burnley manager Sean Dyche has praised the composure of his team following their comeback win over Huddersfield Town on Wednesday.The Clarets picked up their second consecutive victory in the space of three days to move out of the bottom three into 16th position.“I was really pleased, the calmness was one of the biggest things I was pleased with, because they took a lead, and then it’s how you react,” Dyche said, according to Burnley Express.“I thought there was a calmness, we kept probing, we kept playing and kept asking questions.”“I thought our two centre-forwards were excellent, they built into the game, got hold of the ball, they fought, and we started to find moments.”“When those moments come, we think we’ve got quality – the first goal is an excellent goal. Dwight does well, he’s still growing into the game, still getting used to what it’s like, he fires one across and Woody is looking like he’s coming back to where he wants to be.”“He’s driving across the box, really sharp, and him and Barnesy were a handful.”Match Preview: Burnley vs Liverpool Boro Tanchev – August 30, 2019 Premier League leaders Liverpool travel to Burnley for the Matchday 4 of the 2019-20 Premier League campaign.“It felt like it at the time, but credit to Huddersfield, however you look at it, they’ve got a goal, a good one from their point of view and a soft one from ours.”“We’re getting tighter with that, to be fair, I don’t think we gave too much away tonight.”“I think, on the balance of play early on, after the first seven or eight minutes, we got a real foothold, and we started to keep the ball, mix it well, and when we do that, we are a side that can cause trouble.”“We were causing trouble. We were calm after the first goal, and then we score, and it changes with the sending off.”“But then that’s difficult, and credit to Huddersfield, they kept working, stayed diligent and stayed in their shape, so we had to keep probing, until we found the chance.”“There were other chances, but it was a really good goal and a really good finish from Barnesy and we deserved to win the game from there.”
