Act immediately against Sri Lankas Fisheries Bill Vaiko tells Centre

Apprehending such a move, Vaiko said he had met Prime Minister Narendra Modi as early as in July 2017 and impressed upon him the need to convey to his Sri Lankan counterpart the consequences that fishermen may face in the future if such proposals were implemented. (Colombo Gazette) Speaking to reporters, Vaiko said the proposed law, which had the approval of the Sri Lankan government’s cabinet, would give more powers to the Sri Lankan Navy personnel to arrest Indian fishermen and seize trawlers and fishing nets. Above all, the Sri Lankan officials would impose hefty fines and harsher jail terms. The law, he alleged, was being brought in to stop fishermen of the Indian region from engaging in fishing. India’s MDMK general secretary Vaiko has urged the Centre to immediately lodge its protest with the Sri Lankan government over the Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (Amendment) Bill, saying it would be detrimental to the traditional fishing rights of Indians.He has also called on the Central Government to ensure that the island nation withdrew the ‘controversial’ provisions of the Bill, The Hindu newspaper reported. read more


Brock adopts new Fair Dealing Policy

By MikeBlogs (www.flickr.com/photos/mikeblogs)On Feb. 14, 2013, Brock’s Board of Trustees Financial Planning, Investment and Human Resources Committee approved a new Fair Dealing Policy.The new policy gives guidance to faculty and staff when copying and sharing copyright materials under the fair dealing exception in the Copyright Act and replaces a previous policy that became outdated due to developments in case law and legislation.The policy, which has already been adopted by other universities, colleges and schools across Canada, provides Brock instructors with much more flexibility and certainty when sharing copies of materials with students.It allows instructors to copy short excerpts of materials, such as one chapter per book, one article per journal issue, or up to 10 per cent of a work, and share the excerpts with students through Isaak/Sakai, as a print handout, or in course packs.For more info about the policy, visit the University’s Fair Dealing website, or contact copyright@brocku.caThe Library and Centre for Pedagogical Innovation will be offering workshops to explain the new policy in the near future. Slides from a January workshop on the policy are available here, as well as a 5-minute video re-cap. read more


Attorneys for Penney Macys present final arguments on Martha Stewart case

NEW YORK, N.Y. – After a three-month break, attorneys for J.C. Penney Co. and Macy’s Inc. squared off in a New York court Thursday as they presented closing arguments in a contract dispute case centred on their partnership with home maven Martha Stewart.Mark Epstein, one of the lead attorneys representing Penney, told New York State Supreme Court Judge Jeffrey Oing that if Macy’s wanted to prevent others from selling goods in its exclusive categories like pots and bath items, it should have written a better contract.And Theodore Grossman, who represents Macy’s, said Penney was using any excuse to hide the reality that it intentionally interfered with Macy’s contract with Martha Stewart when it signed a merchandising deal in December 2011.“It’s been a long trial. But what it comes down to is a poorly written contract,” argued Epstein. “Time has come to put an end to this case.”Grossman argued that Penney, based in Plano, Texas, aggressively induced Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia to breach the contract and that the contract is clear that Macy’s has the right to all the designs created by the home maven in the exclusive categories, not just specific products.“J.C. Penney knew exactly what it was doing when it entered into the contract,” said Grossman. “Their intention was to harm Macy’s.”Oing promised he would make a ruling on whether Macy’s has exclusive rights to sell certain merchandise including bed, bath and kitchenware items “soon,” but he said it wouldn’t be Friday. The decision would cap a closely watched trial that began in February but continued in fits and starts because of vacation schedules and other interruptions. At one point, Oing even ordered the parties into mediation in March, but that was unsuccessful.The trial featured testimony from Macy’s CEO Terry Lundgren, former Penney CEO Ron Johnson, and Martha Stewart herself. Johnson appeared on the stand just a month before he was fired as Penney CEO, 17 months into his tenure.Cincinnati-based Macy’s Inc. sued Penney and Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Inc. for violating an exclusive deal between the home maven and Macy’s when Penney signed its own agreement with Stewart in 2011.Macy’s is suing Penney for what it believes was intentional interference with Macy’s contract with Martha Stewart. It is seeking not only to block Penney from opening mini boutiques filled with Martha Stewart-branded goods in certain categories, but also to prevent it from selling designs created by Martha Stewart that do not carry her name. The company also seeks monetary damages.One of the loopholes Martha Stewart and Penney have focused on is a provision in the contract that allows Martha Stewart to sell goods covered by the exclusive pact in Martha Stewart Living’s own stores. Penney and Martha Stewart have argued that since the Macy’s contract does not specify that the stores have to be stand-alone, the mini shops within Penney aren’t barred by the exclusivity agreement.“That definition that Macy’s wrote just stinks,” Epstein argued.The stakes are high for all three players, but particularly for Penney, which has been counting on a revamped home area launched this spring to help it rebound from a disastrous year. The company amassed nearly a billion dollars in losses and its revenue dropped 25 per cent for the fiscal year that ended Feb. 2 as a transformation plan spearheaded by Johnson built around a new pricing and merchandising strategy failed. Losses and sales drops continued into the first quarter, as the shadow of Johnson’s legacy remained.Penney’s board brought back its CEO Mike Ullman who has reintroduced frequent sales events and basic merchandise that Johnson eliminated in a failed bid to attract trendier, wealthier customers. But while traffic is improving, analysts believe business is still slow. Even the home area, which was Johnson’s project and features a slew of trendy new names like Jonathan Adler and Michael Graves, has failed to resonate with shoppers, analysts say.A new round of worries about Penney’s financial situation cropped up Wednesday after a report that CIT Group Inc., the largest lender in the clothing industry, has stopped providing financial support to small and large suppliers selling to Penney stores for now. Penney said that the report was untrue and that CIT backed shipments for less than 4 per cent of its merchandise anyway.In July 2012, Macy’s won a preliminary injunction against Martha Stewart Living that would prevent it from selling Martha Stewart-branded housewares and other exclusive products at Penney. A month later, the judge granted permission for Penney to open Martha Stewart shops as long as the items under exclusive contract with Macy’s are not sold.Penney went ahead and ordered goods designed by Martha Stewart in the exclusive categories but sidestepped the preliminary ruling by labeling them JCP Everyday. Macy’s tried to get the judge to halt the sale of the JCP Everyday goods until he made his final ruling, but he declined and allowed Penney to sell the goods that were already made.The JCP Everyday collection hit the stores in May. As part of the final ruling, Oing will decide whether Macy’s contract does cover exclusivity in designs even if the items don’t carry the Martha Stewart name.Penney is carrying Martha Stewart-branded items in party supplies and window treatments, areas not covered by Macy’s contract.

NBA Playoffs Preview Is It Warriors vs Rockets Or Curry vs Harden

When Stephen Curry, the newly minted MVP, was asked about his Golden State Warriors’ upcoming matchup with the Houston Rockets and James Harden, who finished as the runner-up in MVP voting, Curry responded:“All those story lines kind of end once the game starts for us because we understand it’s a team game and neither one of us is going to go out and win four games by ourselves.”We’re inclined to agree with Curry. The series is about the teams, not specific players — especially because Curry leads a historically dominant Warriors team. Golden State has a 91 percent chance to beat Houston, according to our Real Plus-Minus projections.Although …Since 1985, the top two players in MVP voting have gone on to meet in the playoffs seven times. (Curry vs. Harden will be the eighth.) In those matchups, the MVP winner led his team to victory five times. The two exceptions took place in the NBA Finals: In 1985, MVP runner-up Magic Johnson’s Los Angeles Lakers unseated award winner Larry Bird’s Boston Celtics. And in 1997, Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls beat MVP Karl Malone’s Utah Jazz.So the MVP is five-for-seven. And in those matchups, the “most likely better player” (at least, according to our long-term talent estimates) is also five-for-seven. The exceptions there came in 1998 — when Jordan’s Bulls won even though Malone was likely the more valuable player during the regular season — and, again, in 1985.This year, those two trends will collide as Harden was most likely the best player, while Curry took home MVP honors.Whether it’s the darling of the player ratings or the MVP voters who prevails in this matchup, though, one truth has held up across all these series: The team whose star has played better has won.In every matchup of MVP and runner-up, the player with the better stats in the series (as measured by leveraged points above replacement) led his team to victory.For example, look at the battles between Jordan and Malone in the 1997 and 1998 NBA Finals. In both cases, the player who won the MVP (Malone in 1997, Jordan the next year) rated second in the “most likely best player” derby. But in both instances, Jordan had the superior series statistically — and the Bulls cruised to back-to-back championships against the Jazz.It’s a tiny sample size, of course, and each MVP candidate’s team has talented sidekicks who could conceivably carry the load if things were to go awry for the stars. But at the same time, don’t be stunned if the pattern holds and the relative play of Harden and Curry aligns with the overall result of the series. read more


Bailieu Governments clearways policy will have a big impact on traders

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The leader of the Victorian Opposition, Ted Bailieu has expressed his lack of confidence with the way the government has handled the implementation of the clearways extension while underscoring the policy’s impact on inner city shopping strips. “I certainly believe, as do traders affected by clearways, that it will have a big impact on their trade,” the Leader of the Victorian Opposition said to Neos Kosmos English Edition (NKEE). “Traders have only received a token response from the Brumby Government, and the Minister for Roads should release the economic impact statement and the studies they have claimed they have done,” Mr Bailieu added. His comments followed a defiant stance adopted by the City of Stonnington regarding the clearways earlier this month. City of Stonnington Mayor Cr Tim Smith rejected a Ministerial determination released on New Year’s Eve that validates VicRoads policy decision to extend clearway hours. “The timing of this decision should ring alarm bells. If the Minister is so confident this is the right decision why would he try to bury it by releasing it at five minutes to midnight on New Years Eve?,” Cr Smith said. In his determination the Minister for Roads Tim Pallas said he believed all economic, social and environmental impacts had been considered in making the decision. “The Minister’s determination simply states that these factors have been considered, it provides no evidence of such,” the Mayor of Stonnington underscored. The City of Stonnington has done its own independent studies by economic experts who have found that if clearway hours are extended, High Street traders alone stand to lose $6 million a year, according to conservative estimates. At the same time graphs from Yarra Trams have showed public transport travel time savings of as little as three minutes over 6km, pointed out the Mayor of Stonnington. Cr Smith indicated that the Council would seek legal advice on the Minister’s decision. “But our position is clear – we will continue the fight, we will not abandon our traders as the State Government has done,” he said. The chairman of Streets Ahead Inc. which represents among other Chapel St traders, James Pothitos called for the government not to ignore the traders. “Every [government] decision has its consequences,” Mr Pothitos said. “If one business shuts down that is considered a loss what if 10 or 100 businesses shut down what’s going to happen then,” Mr Pothitos added rhetorically. Responding to the criticism raised by the Mayor of Stonnington a spokesperson for the Minister of Roads and Ports Tim Pallas said that the government is “taking action to ensure Melburnians can spend more time with their families and less time in traffic.” “We have made some amendments to the clearways times following feedback from the Stonnington City Council and we now hope to start installing the new signs before the end of this month,” the Minister spokesperson added. Although not directly refuting the findings of the independent economic impact study of the Stonnington Council, the Victorian government is stressing that the economic impact of road congestion costs the Victorian businesses and families up to $2.6 billion per year according to the Victorian Competition & Efficiency Commission.last_img read more

MediaNext LinkedIn Executive Editor Dan Roth Shares

first_imgA vision of LinkedIn as a place that “makes the business world smarter” lured MediaNext keynoter Dan Roth from a successful career in traditional media to lead the editorial operations at the social network for business professionals.Informing business professionals had always been top of mind for Roth, who spent many years as a writer for Fortune and Wired, and who eventually led Fortune’s digital offerings. However, the opportunity to directly reach the vast network of digital professionals that LinkedIn serves by building up its information-sharing infrastructure was too appealing to resist.But why, as Roth’s keynote topic at FOLIO:’s MediaNext conference in New York posited, does LinkedIn actually need an executive editor? While LinkedIn “used to be focused on connecting people,” he says “now it is as much about connecting people with ideas.” That connection of people and ideas is something Roth believes all modern media companies should be focused on. “The role of the media is being a conversation starter,” he says. “A great headline, a great quote-these are great reasons to reach out to someone.”While he says there are certainly people reading to educate themselves on a subject and to “get smarter” the vast majority of readers leverage media as a means to put forth a view, interests, and opinions to their network to generate interaction and help develop their social and professional connections and standing (and, he points out, they used to do so by clipping and sharing newspaper articles, so this isn’t something that is entirely new to the social media era).Roth provided specific guidance for publishers seeking to increase their visibility in LinkedIn’s curated content sections on its homepage and at LinkedIn Today–which Roth says can “drive enough traffic to crash your servers”–such as including that all important “share” button at the top and bottom of every page and being sure to share their own articles on LinkedIn (the more it is shared, the more LinkedIn’s algorithms view it as “important to the business community).He also provided some broader insights based on his experience in new and old media, as well as his own media consumption (and sharing) habits. He suggests that every article include pictures, as they are a consistent driver of traffic. He also says that snappy, opinionated headlines lend themselves to social proliferation.Above all, sites must provide an opportunity for reader feedback, engagement, and conversation. “I can’t stand reading sites where there aren’t comments,” says Roth who points to the incredible quantity and quality of comments on the LinkedIn Influencers pages, but also to those on sites he really enjoys, such as Mashable where almost all of the articles end with the line “What do you think?””When I get to the end of an article, no matter how brilliantly written,” Roth says, “if there are no comments, [it] feels unfinished to me. I want to hear someone add something that carries the conversation forward or says why it is wrong.” And he is not alone. Roth points out that “despite a lot of people expressing concern about people consuming media, we can see that people love the news. They are reading at a furious rate, but occasionally,” he says, “I hear about a media company that has issues with sharing and social media. We’re all struggling to make money, but you need to make sure your readers have a voice.”last_img read more


Mosque attacker a Australian rightwing terrorist Australia PM

first_imgAustralia prime minister Scott Morrison. Photo: ReutersThe gunman who killed numerous worshippers in a New Zealand mosque on Friday was a right-wing “terrorist” with Australian citizenship, prime minister Scott Morrison said.”We stand here and condemn, absolutely the attack that occurred today by an extremist, right-wing, violent terrorist,” Morrison told a press conference.He confirmed media reports that the gunman who mowed down worshippers in the main mosque in the southern New Zealand city of Christchurch was an Australian-born citizen.He said Australian security authorities were investigating any links between the country and the attack, but declined to provide further details about the Australian gunman.An emotional Morrison offered his sympathies to Kiwis.”We are not just allies, we are not just partners, we are family,” he said.New Zealand police said they had detained three men and one woman after attacks on two Christchurch mosques, but they have not provided their identities.”It is such a sad and devastating reminder of the evil that can be ever present about us,” Morrison said of the attacks.last_img read more


Cosplay Round Up Tampa Bay Comic Con 2017

first_imgEach year in Tampa Florida, Imaginarium holds one of the coolest comic conventions to be had on the east side. Tampa Bay Comic Con brings in thousands of attendees, and the unique show continues to grow with each passing year. Where most comic conventions these days push their artists and creators to a back wall, making room for gigantic t-shirt booths or media props and cutouts; Tampa Bay Comic Con gives the golden age; as well as the rising comic creators the respect they deserve. Artists are not just lined up in one sad row in the back. They are cascaded throughout the show floor ready to interact with their fans, and it is truly a beautiful thing that I feel is missing at a lot of newer shows today.Speaking of gorgeous things, TBCC also brings in some of the most creative and talented cosplayers I’ve seen at a show in a while. Cosplay guest Jessica Nigri was on hand this year showing off her new Fem-Reinhardt outfit from Overwatch that had fans going crazy! With talent like this at TBCC, fans made sure to bring their A-game. Each year the cosplay has improved, and I’ve noticed that more families have been getting involved in the fun. I even saw a few pets walking around dressed up that made the dog lover in me scream for joy.

Rs suffering from low fever diesel prices highest ever CM

first_imgKolkata: Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee attacked the Centre for its set of “anti-people” steps that have led to the rupee crash to its lowest level with a steep hike in petrol and diesel prices.At the same time, she once again pointed out that how badly the country’s economy was hit due to the hasty implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST). In a tweet on Friday, the Chief Minister has stated: “Rupee suffering from low fever. Petrol and Diesel prices highest ever.” Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeIt may be mentioned that with the increase in the crude prices, the rupee slumped at 71 against the US currency. At the same time, the petrol and diesel prices in Kolkata are Rs 81.44 and Rs 73.06 respectively on Friday. She further stated in her tweet that “Foreign Exchange Reserves have fallen by $21.84 billion between March end and August 3. Current Account Deficit is moving up towards 2.8 per cent of GDP.” Taking a dig at the Centre for its hasty decision to step into the GST regime, Banerjee further tweeted: “The unprepared bravado of launching GST has resulted in a massive loss to State revenues to the tune of Rs 48,178 crore during July 2017 – March 2018.” Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedStating the adverse effect of the hasty implementation of the GST, the Chief Minister further mentioned: “There are now charges of racketeering, black marketing and hawala, due to the makeshift filing of GST, without supporting invoices.” Raising concern over the present situation, she has stated in the tweet: “Very dangerous situation for the common people of India! Where are we heading to?????” It may be recalled that the Chief Minister had earlier tweeted raising concern about the rupee hitting a new low, stating that “small business will be further killed” after the demonetisation disaster. This comes at the time when the Mamata Banerjee government has taken several steps for the benefit of the people and around 8.59 crore are getting the benefits of the Khadya Sathi scheme under which rice is distributed at Rs 2 per kg. On Friday, the Chief Minister has also tweeted remembering the martyrs of 1959 Khadya Andolan. In the same tweet she has stated: “In Bangla, we provide food security to 90% (8.59 crore) of the state’s people through the Khadya Sathi scheme.” Floral tributes were paid to the martyrs of Khadya Andolan at Nabanna on Friday.last_img read more

Government lacking tourism portfolio

first_imgAOT Group chief executive Andrew Burnes said the fact that Australia does not have a federal minister managing the tourism portfolio was “extremely disappointing”. Ex-federal tourism minister Fran Bailey believes tourism requires its own minister. “On one hand I can understand the government is thinking that it has elevated tourism into the trade portfolio,” Ms Bailey said. Source = ETB News: P.T. The AU$98 billion national industry, considered one of Australia’s key economic growth sectors, currently falls under the supervision of the trade and investment portfolio, The Australian reported.center_img The Australian government is facing criticism from an ex-party member and industry executives, over its decision not to appoint a dedicated tourism minister. “(But) the reason I think it needs its own senior dedicated minister is because it’s an industry that spans so many areas across the whole of government.” “For an industry that employs 700,000 Australians and is sustainable and does not rely on handouts, and is economically viable, the commonwealth needs to rethink its position,” Mr Burnes said.last_img read more


Janet Jackson Def Leppard Stevie Nicks are among

first_img Janet Jackson, Def Leppard, Stevie Nicks are among those who will be inducted into the Rock Hall of Fame next year Stevie Nicks of the band Fleetwood Mac performs at the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Festival Day 1 held at T-Mobile Arena on Friday, Sept. 21, 2018, in Las Vegas. Nicks will join Def Leppard, Janet Jackson, Radiohead, the Cure, Roxy Music and the Zombies as new members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The 34th induction ceremony will take place on March 29 at Barclays Center in New York. (Photo by John Salangsang/Invision/AP) NEW YORK — Janet Jackson joins her brother Michael and the Jackson 5 as members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, earning induction on Thursday along with Stevie Nicks and the top fan vote-getter, Def Leppard.Radiohead, the Cure, Roxy Music and the Zombies will also be ushered in next spring at the 34th induction ceremony. It will be held March 29 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.Jackson’s induction comes after her third time as nominee and many saw it as overdue, given her prowess as a hitmaker with “All For You,” ”That’s the Way Love Goes,” ”Nasty,” ”Together Again” and “What Have You Done For Me Lately.”Her career has suffered from the fallout after the infamous 2004 Super Bowl appearance where her bare breast was briefly exposed. Jackson became eligible for the rock hall in 2007 and wasn’t nominated until 2016.The Roots’ Questlove, in a social media post earlier this year, said her exclusion had been “highly criminal.” He cited the influence of her 1986 album “Control,” which he said set off the New Jack Swing trend.“This was no one’s kid sister,” he wrote.It will be Nicks’ second induction into the rock hall, since she’s already there as a member of Fleetwood Mac. She launched a solo career in 1981 with her duet with the late Tom Petty, “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around.” Other hits followed, including “Edge of Seventeen,” ”Stand Back” and “I Will Run to You.”Def Leppard earned more than half a million votes from fans, which are incorporated into more than 1,000 ballots from artists, historians, industry professionals and past winners in deciding who gets honoured. The British heavy metal band with a pop sheen were huge sellers in the 1980s on the back of songs like “Photograph” and “Pour Some Sugar on Me.”Frontman Joe Elliott said he was initially ambivalent toward the honour until Jon Bon Jovi suggested it would change his life.“When I look at the list of who’s in, it’s just obvious you’d want to be in that club, isn’t it?” he told Billboard earlier this year. “When you think that every band that means anything in the world, starting from the Beatles and the Stones and any artist that influenced them — your Chuck Berrys, your Little Richards, etc., etc. — then of course you want to be in. Why wouldn’t you?”Def Leppard, Nicks and Roxy Music were voted in during their first years as nominees. Other 2019 nominees who didn’t make the cut included LL Cool J, Devo, Rage Against the Machine, MC5, John Prine, Todd Rundgren and Kraftwerk.There’s some question about whether Radiohead will shrug its collective shoulder as a nominee. The English band seemed like generic grunge rockers on their initial hit “Creep,” but with the album “OK Computer” and beyond have become consistent sonic pioneers. Among its rock hall class, Radiohead has the most impact on the current music scene.In an interview with Rolling Stone earlier this year, Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood said “I don’t care” when asked about the rock hall. Bandmate Ed O’Brien said, “culturally, I don’t understand it. I think it might be a quintessentially American thing.”The Cure and frontman Robert Smith resist their initial label as goth rockers, champions of fans who like black makeup, black clothes and darkly romantic songs. They have a durable catalogue of hits, including “Friday I’m in Love,” ”Boys Don’t Cry,” ”Pictures of You” and “Let’s Go to Bed.”Roxy Music came out of the 1970s progressive rock scene and had hits with “Love is the Drug” and “More Than This.” Dapper member Bryan Ferry had a successful solo career and Brian Eno has been an influential producer.The heyday of British rockers the Zombies’ career was the 1960s, with big sellers “She’s Not There” and “Time of the Season.”The hall will announce ticket sales for March’s ceremony next month. HBO and SiriusXM will carry the event.___Online: https://www.rockhall.comDavid Bauder, The Associated Press Summary Janet Jackson, Def Leppard, Nicks join Rock Hall of Fame by David Bauder, The Associated Press Posted Dec 13, 2018 5:07 am PDT Last Updated Dec 13, 2018 at 7:54 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Def Leppard|induction|Janet Jackson|music|Rock Hall of Fame|stevie nickslast_img read more
