The anti-Europe party, Ukip, released its manifesto today, in which it set out policies which would be incompatible with EU membership, including restrictions on unskilled foreign labour.The poll shows that, despite Ukip policies such as the above being rubbished by think tanks, a large proportion of the general public is likely to have sympathy with at least some of Nigel Farage’s ideas. Perhaps unsurprisingly, older participants in the Populus survey were more likely to be in favour of leaving. For those over 45, 47 per cent were in favour of a Brexit, with 35 per cent being against.For those aged 18-44 the sentiment was reversed: 47 per cent were in favour of remaining, and 29 per cent wanted to leave. Anyone able to vote in the 1975 UK referendum on membership of the then European Economic Community would now be over 57, and firmly in the older category.Any sympathy to Ukip’s cause is not likely to be enough however, as data from showed that Ukip is failing to win over supporters in its own target seats.

  • News / AF-KLM investing millions into digital systems to boost carrier integration

    first_imgBy Alexander Whiteman in Paris 16/11/2018 “And our efforts are not only on the digital side, but also on the physical operations, with handling across Charles de Gaulle (CDG) and Schiphol being unified.”As part of this effort, AF-KLM is ploughing €24m into an infrastructure project at CDG, which will improve processes and automation.Senior VP for sales and distribution Christophe Boucher told The Loadstar this project would be taking place over the three years to 2021.“It is a major investment and will bring major changes in Paris. Equally, we are investing in new facilities at Schiphol, with a new sorter for handling express shipments,” he said.“It is not only a sense of cooperation and integration within AF-KLM, but there is a sense that the mentality between the carriers is unified.”Mr Boucher said that having been at a number of AF-KLM stations across the globe, he believes AF-KLM is fundamentally unified. Furthermore, he said, the idea that the airlines are not working together and competing for volumes is false, as it is the stations and not the airlines that handle revenue management.“That said, there are things you cannot unify; we have operations in Paris and in Amsterdam and their processes are determined by their customers,” he continued.“From Paris, we deal a lot with operations in West Africa and the standards and issues that arise there will be different to those operations out of Schiphol into Asia.”However, Mr Boucher acknowledged some of the historic failings of AF-KLM Cargo, in particular between 2010 and 2016 when a raft of inefficiencies hampered cargo operations and saw the carrier’s air freight business haemorrhage money.Mr de Nooijer said: “Through a process of cost restructuring over the last few years, and addressing our underlying cost base, we have brought this under control.“Our operation has been completely re-managed, and we are now heading in a far more optimistic direction.”Next week: AF-KLM and digitisation Air France-KLM Martinair Cargo (AF-KLM) is looking to further bolster its integration efforts both digitally and physically.Despite having merged in 2004, AF-KLM has reportedly struggled to standardise cargo processes across the three carriers.However, head of cargo Marcel de Nooijer, rebutted this, but added that the new push towards digitisation would certainly see improved standardisation.He told The Loadstar: “Our new product will bring legacy systems of both Air France and KLM – some of which have been in place since the 1980s – under one rooflast_img read more

    first_img North Korea tries to accelerate building of walls and fences along border with China German experts advise using radio to incite peaceful revolution in North Korea Facebook Twitter AvatarDaily NKQuestions or comments about this article? Contact us at [email protected] News After the division of Germany in the ColdWar, radio broadcasts from the West to the East became an essential lifelineand unifying force for the separated German peoples. Western and Eastern mediaexperts agree that, as the East Germans suffered from poverty and oppressionunder the communist dictatorship, radio broadcasts from the West helped themdream of hope, prosperity, and freedom.   In particular, Eastern listenerspassionately followed and loved the Western Radio Broadcast RIAS and thepopular the Tagesschau news program from the publically produced ARD station.These programs gave light and hope to people who were living under the boot ofa cruel and oppressive regime. On this topic, Detlef Kühn, the formerdirector of Sachsen Radio, said, “The Western broadcasts showed the outsideworld in realistic terms. Because of this, the broadcasts became the mostimportant source of information for East German people, especially whencompared to the low quality information offered by the strictly censored mediain East Germany. Unlike Western media, Eastern broadcasts did not play anyimportant role in the unification process.” Robert Lebegern (pictured left) is director of theDeutsch-Deutschen Museum Mödlareuth (Mödlareuth Border Museum). He said, “EastGermany was a Socialist nation with thorough control over media production.Just like in North Korea today, East Germany used to exert intense ideologicalpressure on its people. However, through the Western radio broadcasts, thepeople gradually began to form their own opinions about the world.”   In September of 1955, the East GermanSupreme Court ruled that West German Produced radio broadcaster RIAS was a toolof spies. This allegation might not be based on fact, but it is a reflection ofthe immense social impact of RIAS radio, which had the power to pump ideasabout democracy and freedom and begin to influence the way people thought aboutpolitical and history. The reason West German media was able tohave this sort of influence over the Easterners is because the publishersmaintained an objective and neutral stance when reporting and delivering thenews. The experts agree that by sticking to these core journalistic principles,the media outlets were able to expedite and add momentum to the peaceful unificationprocess. Not through bombs, bullets, or coercion, but through hearts and minds.   South Korea to North Korea broadcasts needto match the influence of West German broadcasts Coming face to face with the soft power ofthese broadcasts, the East German Stasi secret police (which served a similarrole as North Korea’s State Security Department) were mobilized toinvestigate and surveil instances of people tuning into the forbidden radio.The Stasi investigated elementary, middle, and high school children about theshape of the clock of the television news that their parents watched todetermine if they were watching West German television. The East and WestGerman programs had differently shaped clocks, which made for an innocuoussounding yet conclusive way to determine which broadcast the parents weretuning into.   These drastic attempts to stop the flow ofinfluential programming from abroad shows just how afraid the East Germanregime was. They even used signal jamming just like North Korea does. But thisdid nothing to blunt the affection that the East German residents had for theforeign broadcasts.  Entire border patrol unit in North Hamgyong Province placed into quarantine following “paratyphoid” outbreak RIAS was on the scene on February 2, 1962 when American President John F. Kennedy visited Berlin. Image: RIAS RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR SHARE *This article has been brought to youthanks to support from the Korea Press Foundation. According to a 1985 survey of 250 EastGermans by Bamberg University, 94% of those who had television tuned intoWestern broadcasts. They preferred news programs such as Tagesschau overvariety and entertainment shows. News programs which addressed East Germany’sproblems had the highest viewership figures. Radio was the same. Passionatefans of the RIAS station even used various ways to send postcards to the stationheadquarters across the border. An anonymous official from the GermanFederation Bureau of Public Information said, “Because the West German mediasources accurately and precisely reported how the East German authorities andthe Stasi were oppressing the people, they were able to play an important partin changing the East German people’s mentality and political consciousness.North Korean people know that their lives are difficult  What they don’tknow is how their lives could get better. South Korean media could help in thatregard. That would make a big difference when it comes time for sweepingpolitical and social changes.”   Dr. Jürgen Reiche (pictured right) is director of theLeipzig Forum of Modern History. He said, “All the illusions and misperceptionsthat East Germans had about capitalism were rectified by their interaction withforeign media. Easterners were especially forced to confront the hard realityof their own situation when they compared their lifestyle with those of theaverage West German people they heard about through Western media. In much thesame way, North Koreans have the same sorts of restrictions on accessingforeign media. And so Southern broadcasts to North Korea will have a largeimpact on their way of thinking.” South-North broadcasts will play a role inchanging the North Korean regime West-to-East TV and radio broadcasts playedan important part in the peaceful revolution of 1989. Through the media, 16million East Germans joined the various pro-democracy protests occurring aroundthe country. Western media was able to fan the flames ofrevolutionary courage in East Germany by serving as an information provider, ademocracy advocate, and by providing continuous and up to the minute reports ofprotests going on throughout the world and East Germans who escaped via Poland, Hungary, and Czechoslovakia.   Dr. Jürgen Reiche said, “We strived to showthe protests occurring inside East Germany to as many East Germans as we could.That way they would hear the reports and head out to the streets. As many as100,000 people participated. Western media played an important role inincreasing the size of those protests. And in that regard, also helped tocontribute to the unification of divided Germany.Robert Lebegern added, “In1989, when the protests were starting to catch on, that’s when the Westernmedia really grew to take on its most important function. The influence of themedia helped to increase the public antipathy towards the communist regime andfacilitate the peaceful protests that led to regime change.” Director Lebegern followed by explaining that it is hard toimagine how unification and the peaceful revolution could have occurred withoutthe tremendous contributions made by Western media broadcasts into thereclusive East German state. In this exact same fashion, South-to-Northbroadcasts on the Korean peninsula have the power to show North Koreans thepower of political and economic freedom. “This is turn serves as a foundationfor the kind of attitude shifts that lead to peaceful revolution,” he asserted.  Son Gi Woong from the Korea Institute forNational Unification (KINU) also weighed in, stating, “East Germany was taken in under the WestGerman political system, so we sometimes call that unification throughabsorption. But I don’t think that is the best term. After the East German peoplewitnessed how the Westerners were living, they purposefully went after theBerlin Wall. South Korea needs to do the same for North Koreans through themedia. To show them what a free democracy looks like.  However, if wereally want to insist that North Korea should fundamentally be a country of thepeople, with the freedom to make their own decisions, then we can only givethem the information they need to make that choice. After that, we need them tomake the decision for themselves.”  By Daily NK – 2016.02.05 12:45pm News This photograph shows two RIAS reporters near two East German military personnel in Brandenburg at the scene of the Berlin Wall one week after it had fallen.

  • Look abroad for yield

    Keywords Bond Fixed income investors searching for yield need to look beyond Canada’s borders, according to David Hoffman, managing director and portfolio manager of global fixed income at Philadelphia-based Brandywine Global Investment Management, LLC. Hoffman was speaking as part of an expert panel on yield at the Legg Mason 2012 Rethink Premier Thought Leadership conference in Toronto on Thursday. While Canada was an excellent place to invest in terms of bonds over the past 15 to 16 years, said Hoffman, that is no longer the case. “Over the last few years Canadians were completely correct in saying: “We don’t need anybody else, we have the right things happening here,” he said. “But the fact is that it’s time for considerable diversification.” The increase in Canada’s labour costs due to the raising dollar and the negative debt-to-GDP ratio are part of the reason for lower Canadian bond yields, said Hoffman. He also foresees the Canadian dollar dropping by 10 to 20% over the next three to five years. As such, a portfolio solely invested in Canadian bonds will miss out on opportunities for a higher return through foreign exchange rates. Countries that Hoffman sees as offering a higher yield include Brazil and Mexico. When bond ratings slip, investors shrug With bond yields low and rising, what is the price of safety?

  • New head to lead SA’s first stand-alone Aboriginal housing strategy

    first_imgNew head to lead SA’s first stand-alone Aboriginal housing strategy The Marshall Liberal Government has appointed a new Head of Aboriginal Housing to lead the rollout of South Australia’s first-ever stand-alone Aboriginal Housing strategy, with the aim of improving outcomes for Aboriginal people.Kuyani-Arrernte woman Erin Woolford was appointed to the head role in the SA Housing Authority to spearhead the development and implementation of a new Aboriginal Housing Strategy.The new strategy will address the specific housing needs of Aboriginal people and is expected to be released in mid-2021.Minister for Human Services Michelle Lensink said Erin has a wealth of experience working with regional and remote South Australian communities.“Erin is an accomplished leader in Aboriginal Affairs and policy development, and as Head of Aboriginal Housing she will play a vital role in improving housing for Aboriginal people across our state,” said Minister Lensink.“She has lived in regional and remote communities over the past four decades, and worked across government, corporate, academic and specialist service sectors.“Erin’s experience and familiarity with the priorities of Aboriginal communities will be an ongoing asset to SA Housing Authority and our state, as we continue to engage with communities to design and deliver a new strategy.“It is widely understood that better housing is a key factor in closing the health and life expectancy gap between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples within Australia.“Housing provides a stable place from which to access health services, access and maintain employment, attend school and generally increase social inclusion.However, securing safe and affordable housing currently is out of reach for many Aboriginal people – the new strategy will aim to change this.”Ms Woolford is this week travelling around regional and remote South Australia as part of the latest consultation with Aboriginal communities about the new strategy.“The strong message we have heard so far from our engagement with communities is that they want to work with government and other organisations to create a housing sector that reflects the needs and aspirations of all Aboriginal people living in South Australia,” said Ms Woolford.“The strategy is about more than just housing – it requires government, Aboriginal communities, service providers and the broader housing sector to work in partnership to create safe, secure and affordable housing outcomes, culturally informed and responsiveservices, economic development opportunities, and to strengthen local decision making frameworks to enable Aboriginal people within South Australia to thrive.”Ms Woolford is also working closely with the Aboriginal Advisory Committee to draft and implement the strategy.Chair of the Committee, Shona Reid, thanked the community for their contribution to the strategy.“We would like to acknowledge and sincerely thank all who have contributed to developing the Aboriginal Housing Strategy so far,” said Ms Reid.“I would like to congratulate Erin on her appointment as Head of Aboriginal Housing.Together with people across the state we are committed to improving housing outcomes for Aboriginal people.”Delivering a new Aboriginal Housing Strategy is one of 33 actions under the Marshall Liberal Government’s once-in-a-generation 10-year strategy Our Housing Future 2020-30. /Public News.

  • Mercedes-AMG adds ‘S’ trim to GT Roadster range

    first_imgPricing has not yet been announced, but like its performance specs, you can expect it to split the difference between the base model’s $149,000 MSRP and the GT C’s $178,000 starting price. Full details will be revealed when it goes on sale later this year. Mercedes-AMG is adding an ‘S’ trim to its GT Roadster line, to slot in between the base GT and the high-performance GT C, the German automaker said mid-May.Paralleling the GT’s coupe range – available in GT, GT S, GT C and GT R trims – the Roadster’s new GT C variant will split the difference between its other two currently available versions.With some 515 horsepower being churned out of its twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8, the GT C offers 46 more ponies than a standard GT, and 35 fewer than the C. Its 494 lb-ft of torque lands just eight shy of the GT C’s rating, however.

  • NWA/NEPA Says Palisadoes Project Will Protect Kgn Harbour

    first_imgRelatedNWA/NEPA Says Palisadoes Project Will Protect Kgn Harbour Advertisements RelatedNWA/NEPA Says Palisadoes Project Will Protect Kgn Harbour NWA/NEPA Says Palisadoes Project Will Protect Kgn Harbour Office of the Prime MinisterOctober 2, 2010center_img FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the National Works Agency (NWA), Patrick Wong, says the Palisadoes Road Shoreline Project is not simply a road rehabilitation exercise, but a comprehensive programme for protecting Kingston Harbour.Mr. Wong was speaking at a press conference called to discuss the project, at the Ministry of Transport and Works in Kingston, Friday (October 1).The NWA Head emphasised that the project was an important national operation, as it will help to safeguard some of Jamaica’s most valuable resources, located along the Kingston shoreline, such as the Caribbean Cement Company and the Norman Manley International Airport.He pointed out that the Palisadoes provide protection for several communities, including Portmore, downtown Kingston, Newport West, Harbour View, Rae Town and Port Royal.Environmental Engineer at the National Works Agency (NWA), Mark Richards (far left), provides a detailed description of the restoration work to be undertaken on the Palisadoes strip in Kingston, during a press conference at the Ministry of Transport and Works in Kingston, on (October 1).“Without this Palisadoes shoreline, you have already seen some of the damage just by the surge in the Harbour along Port Royal Street, from Rae Town to the Bank of Jamaica where it has undermined the road. You have seen at Caribbean Terrace, which had very little protection, what it can do,” he illustrated.Mr. Wong said the works will include construction of revetments on both sides of the Palisadoes, and the road will be lifted making it less susceptible to flooding.He also confirmed that the road to be constructed was not a four-lane highway, but a two-lane thoroughfare with road shoulders on both sides, so motorists can pull over in cases of emergency. A boardwalk will also be constructed for recreational activities.The CEO said all the relevant analyses have been carried out, to ensure the works do not impact negatively on the environment, and that a consultant has been engaged to monitor this aspect of the project.“We have thoroughly analysed, reviewed, consulted. We have done all that is required, as good corporate citizens. We have taken everything into consideration but, at the end of the day, we have a call to make: We have to protect the larger environment, which is the environment where people work, live and play,” Mr. Wong said.Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the National Environment and Planning Agency (NEPA), Peter Knight, said his agency was satisfied that the construction work will not significantly affect the harbour’s plant and animal life.He said there is no basis for concern about destruction of endemic plants, or disturbance of turtle nesting sites. He added that the area, for which approval has been given, is not a nesting site for turtles, and that whatever plants will be removed, including mangroves, will be relocated until the construction is completed. The NWA has also given a commitment to replant vegetation, which has been lost over the years as a result of storms.The US$65 million project is being undertaken by the China Harbour Engineering Company, through a loan from the China Exim Bank and is scheduled for completion in two years.

Richard Azan RelatedICT Has Become an Engine for Economic Growth – State Minister Robinson Related2013/2014 Sectoral Debate: Minister of Labour and Social Security, the Hon. Derrick Kelliercenter_img Advertisements FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Cabinet has approved the issuing of drafting instructions to the Chief Parliamentary Counsel for enactment of the Insolvency Act and amendments to the Companies Act. Speaking at the Jamaica House press briefing held at the Office of the Prime Minister on Thursday, June 6, Minister with responsibility for Information, Senator the Hon. Sandrea Falconer, said the amendments will bring the Acts up-to-date and in line with modern legislative policies. The Jamaican law on bankruptcy and insolvency is contained in two pieces of legislation. These are the Bankruptcy Act, which covers personal and individual insolvency; and the Companies Act, which deals with the winding up of insolvent corporate bodies. Minister Falconer informed that the Bankruptcy Act dates back to the 1880s and has been the subject of adhoc amendments over the years. She noted that the procedural rules of the Act are not only outdated, but that they also conflict with the rules that govern other court proceedings. “The Act has just not kept pace with the modern legislative policies towards insolvency, as a result, the insolvency process is time consuming and costly,” she said. Miss Falconer also noted that the current law does not address the stigma of personal bankruptcy and does not make provisions for the rehabilitation or the reorganisation of the business affairs of debtors. “Only the interest of the creditors is given paramount consideration,” she pointed out.
