Chris MacIntyreAPTN NewsThe Taku River Tlingit First Nation is hoping to expand its hydroelectric power station and to share the clean energy with others living in the Yukon.Peter Kirby, a member of the community and CEO of the Tlingit Homeland Energy Ltd., says he hopes to expand the power plant from providing power to his community to selling clean energy to the Yukon through Yukon Energy.“When we built this project we thought, there’s more energy in this creek,” he said. “We know the Yukon area well, we know the potential for projects in the Yukon region, and we know this project is exceptional to meet the needs of the Yukon.“We are ready, willing and able to have a conversation with supporters of the project and the potential customer Yukon on what that would mean in terms of energy purchase agreement and we hope to be there in the next few months.”(Constructed in 2009, the Atlin hydroelectric power station has been providing the community with clean energy. This station currently has an installed capacity of 2.1 Mega Watts)The hydroelectric station currently has an installed capacity of 2.1 mega watts of power.The community peaks at 1.4 mega watts with the remaining power being stored in a load bank.If the expansion plan gets the greenlight, the installed capacity would grow to 8.5 mega watts.Andrew Hall, president of Yukon Energy says he’s also optimistic about the project.He says that hydroelectric power is better long term but states that there are many hurdles to work through before negotiations can start.“There’s the technical feasibility. What does it take to bring that amount of power up to the Yukon, and up to Whitehorse? What kind of transmission lines do we need?“So there’s the technical piece and then there’s the financial. Do the numbers make sense?,” he said.Even with all the hurdles ahead, Kirby said he’s ready to do the work that needs to be done and remains proud of where the project started and where it could go.“I’m very proud of the work that we did in this community, our whole community,” said Kirby.“I’m very proud of what’s happened in our community since then.”email@example.com
KolkataL Those not aware of the struggles of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah have tried to create “fabricated” stories that the cadre-based party has become an individual-centric organisation, Union minister Muktar Abbas Naqvi said. Denying claims that a sense of fear prevails in the BJP, he said stories of no other senior leader apart from Modi and Shah are allowed to speak their mind are “fabricated”. Modi has been the biggest victim of “political intolerance” and a “few incidents by fringe elements” cannot be branded as intolerance against minorities, the senior BJP leader and Union minister for minority affairs told PTI in an interview. “Narendra Modi and Shah are both ground-level workers.They started their political journey as village and local level (mandal) workers. “Those who don’t know Amit Shah and Modiji (and their struggles) make such comments. They create such false and fabricated stories,” Naqvi said when asked whether a cadre-based party like the BJP has turned into a party of Modi and Shah. When asked if a sense of fear prevails in the BJP as no other leader apart from Modi and Shah are allowed to speak their mind, Naqvi said these are “fabricated stories” created by those who don’t know the prime minister and the party chief. Exuding confidence that the BJP will win more seats than 2014, Naqvi said Modi due to his good governance in the last five years has become “a very credible brand of development, good governance and stability”. “The last (general) election took place in the name of Narendra Modi, this time election is taking place on the basis of the work done by Narendra Modi. For the sake of betterment of the country, we need Narendra Modi’s government,” he said. Refuting claims that minorities are living under fear, threat and intimidation, the Union minister said that “a wrong perception was deliberately created”. “We followed the agenda of development for all without discrimination. In the last five years, not a single major communal riot has taken place in the country. “In the last five years, no major terrorist attack took place in our country, except for a few incidents in Kashmir where security forces have taken stern action,” Naqvi said. He claimed that earlier, during Congress’s rule, every 15 days there used to be a terrorist attack in India and apart from innocents being killed in these attacks, a large number of Muslim youths used to get arrested and branded as terrorists in the aftermath of these incidents. “Such incidents have never taken place in the last five years (of the Modi government),” the BJP leader said. On incidents of lynching, Naqvi said though there has been development without discrimination, “some fringe and criminal elements have tried to disrupt the agenda of development”. “Under Modiji’s rule we have not allowed such destructive agendas to get prominence, and those involved in such criminal activity, we had taken action against them,” he said. Commenting on allegations that the BJP is creating an atmosphere of intolerance, Naqvi said that “agreement and disagreements” are part of the democratic process, but, added that, Modi has been the biggest victim of political intolerance. “Modi is the biggest sufferer of political intolerance. In the last five years, the returning of awards campaign and many such campaigns are only examples of political intolerance. “Even things which were not even said by Modi or done by the BJP are termed as their statements. Neither he nor the BJP has ever said that if someone doesn’t agree with our views then he or she is anti-national,” he said. No government has ever faced so much of negativity that Modi and the present government had to face, Naqvi said, adding that despite negative campaigns, the Modi government has performed, reformed and transformed the nation. “In every democratic system agreement and disagreements are both sides of the same coin. This perception of intolerance against us is completely wrong,” he said. Last month veteran BJP leader L K Advani in a blog had said his party has never regarded those who disagreed with it politically as “anti-national” or “enemies” but only as adversaries. His comments came at a time when the BJP under Prime Minister Modi and Shah have made the issue of national security a key plank for the general elections and have often accused its political rivals of speaking the language of India’s enemies like Pakistan. Listing out achievements of the BJP government, Naqvi said the present dispensation has followed the policy of “development for all” and has been able to control inflation, price rise, corruption. It has brought back the economy on track, he said. Commenting on the violence during the Lok Sabha polls in West Bengal, he said the state administration is not supporting the Election Commission in conducting free and fair polls. “Goons supported by the TMC are influencing elections in Bengal. Despite daylight killings of opposition workers, not a single culprit is being arrested.The TMC is desperate as it has sensed defeat,” he said. In a first in the country, campaigning for nine Lok Sabha seats in Bengal going to polls in the last phase came to an end at 10 pm Thursday, 20 hours before the scheduled time, in the wake of violence between BJP and TMC workers in Kolkata during Shah’s roadshow on May 14.
Fez- The news has been shared by many Moroccans since it was first published by Moroccan news portal Hespress. Zouhair Benouahi, a Moroccan player who plays in Azerbaijan’s football league, said he was deprived of playing with the national team of football (soccer), because he once played against an Israeli team.The news might sound unbelievable, but this is what, Rachid Taoussi, the coach of Morocco’s national team allegedly told the player: “a player who plays in Israel can’t even dream of playing with the national team as long as I am the coach.” The player added that although Taoussi expressed his satisfaction of the player’s performance, he opposed his integration into the Moroccan team, on the grounds that he had played against an Israeli team during the first round of the Europa League. Faced with the impossibility of playing for Morocco, the player said he had no other choice than obtaining the Azerbaijani citizenship in order to play for its national team. © Morocco World News.

Mr. Somavia ran unopposed to continue his stint as the ninth Director-General in the Geneva-based agency’s 89-year history, and formally begins his new five-year term in March 2009. He assumed office as ILO chief in early 1999.During the past decade, the Chilean has led the promotion of the ILO’s Decent Work Agenda, and overseen the implementation of the Organization’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, which was adopted in 1998.The Organization has also seen a huge increase in the number of ratifications of ILO labour standards during his tenure, as well as its own adoption of a landmark Declaration on Social Justice for a Fair Globalization, in June of this year.“We stand today at a significant moment in this Organization’s history,” said Mr. Somavia. “Unemployment is rising. The crisis continues to batter economies and individuals across the world. The number of working poor is increasing. And there is a growing chorus of concern over the balance, fairness and sustainability of the current model of globalization.” 18 November 2008Juan Somavia was elected to a third term as Director-General of the United Nations International Labour Organization (ILO) today as he pledged to work to ensure social justice amid a growing series of challenges in the global economy.
Catch documentation schemes (CDS) offer a way to cut down on trade in illegal fish with basically ensuring that: fish shipments are certified by national authorities as being caught legally and in compliance with best practices; certified hard-copy documentation accompanies the fish through processing and marketing nationally or internationally. Only fish with valid documentation can be exported or traded to markets where a CDS requirement exists. Until recently, the few such schemes that had been established mainly focused on overexploited high-value species, such as Chilean Seabass harvested in Antarctic waters, or Atlantic and Southern Bluefin Tuna.With seafood trade at record highs along with rising consumer demands, CDS could be more widely applied. Since 2010, the European Union has used a CDS that covers all imported fish shipments from overseas; and in 2016, the United States announced its own scheme. International buy-in critical One challenge facing broader use of CDS is logistically ensuring that a paper certificate safely makes it from a fishing port in one country to an inspection station in another. The new guidelines recommend that fish shipment information be recorded digitally for referencing at any point along the chain – reducing administrative burdens and cutting down on fraud opportunities. The new guidelines also call for “user friendly” CDS that are relatively simple and can be adapted to different fisheries circumstances. “CDS will only succeed if there is strong, international coordination,” explains Audun Lem, Deputy-Director of FAO’s Fisheries and Aquaculture Policy and Resources Division and current Secretary of FAO’s Sub-Committee on Fish Trade. “Although they are voluntary, the process of negotiation that led to the new guidelines means they enjoy a high level of buy-in by governments, while endorsement at the FAO Conference will send a clear signal of commitment to adhere to them. So, going forward, new catch documentation schemes established at the national, regional or international level will be in sync, reducing barriers to their wider use,” he underscored. Additionally, Mr. Lem added that because the guidelines call on countries to comply with existing international laws as well as World Trade Organization agreements, their developing CDS will allow countries to avoid unwanted trade disputes.

Photo: UNEP GRID Arendal/Lawrence Hislop “A set of draft Voluntary Guidelines on Catch Documentation Schemes was last week unanimously adopted by a FAO technical consultation that brought a five-year negotiation effort to a close, and are now poised for adoption by all UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) members at [its] upcoming bi-annual governing conference,” the agency said in a news release. Once approved by the Conference, which will take place in Rome from 3 to 8 July, the guidelines will act as an internationally-recognized “gold standard” reference for governments and businesses looking to establish systems that can trace fish from their point of capture through the entire supply chain, in other words from “sea-to-plate,” to stop illegally caught fish from entering the marketplace.Globally, some 91-93 million tonnes of fish are captured each year, and seafood products are among the world’s most widely traded food commodities – with a $142 billion export value in 2016. Illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing is also estimated to strip as much as 26 million additional tonnes of fish from the oceans annually, damaging marine ecosystems and sabotaging efforts to sustainably manage fisheries.
A devoted father taught himself biotechnology after his baby son had to have his arm amputated.Unsatisfied with the “cumbersome” options available for children and babies on the NHS, the psychology teacher locked himself in his shed for days on end to make the perfect bionic arm for his little boy.Arms with sensor technology, according to Ben Ryan, aren’t available until children are three or four years old, and he “wanted it a bit quicker than that”. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. He has been working closely with Paul Sohi from software company Autodesk, who is impressed the dad was able to self-teach himself to make a bionic arm for his child.Mr Sohi said: “It’s been inspiring to work on this innovative and ambitious project.It is amazing that, despite Ben having no background in product design, he’s taught himself enough to create something that will not only help his own son Sol, but potentially lots of others facing the same challenges too.” He said that even rudimentary and cumbersome technology isn’t available until children are older.Mr Ryan, who is from Bangor, also revealed the current, antiquated prosthetic limbs being offered were ‘ugly’ and are often rejected by young children early on.Baby Sol, born in March 2015, had his arm amputated at just ten days old because of an unexpected clot in his arm.He gurgled happily on Good Morning Britain and used his new arm as his father spoke about the project. His wife, Kate, was worried about her husband’s mental health when he holed himself away in the shed to create the arm.”He was in his shed at the bottom of the garden and I wouldn’t see him for days”, she said.”To be perfectly honest I thought he was going a little bit mad.”When it’s working, he can make the thumb move”.Mr Ryan is crowdfunding to raise money for the baby bionic arms, and seems confident about the results. He said: “This is the second version I’ve made…and the next one I make will be better”. We’re joined again by little Sol, who had a bionic arm made for him by his daddy – and he’s getting on well with our scripts! pic.twitter.com/1j549Hvwp4— Good Morning Britain (@GMB) March 2, 2017 The father wants to help amputee babies around the world, writing on his crowdfunding page: “My aim through Ambionics is to help children everywhere adopt and continue to use prosthetics through into adulthood.”
Apple has always preferred to offer consumers a locked-down, end-to-end experience. That’s what makes the iPad one of the most enjoyable consumer mobile devices, but also perhaps the most restrictive. Since the original iPhone, the jailbreak community has been cracking the software in iDevices to give users more flexibility with advanced apps. This time app developers have taken things to a new level. Quasar is an impressive window management system for iPads.We’re all used to the multi-window paradigm on desktop PCs, but that has never worked quite right on a touchscreen device. Multitasking on mobile devices has just meant suspending an app in the background so it can be returned to quickly. Quasar actually makes your iPad apps behave like real windows. You can resize, move, minimize, and close them as you like.Each app has a bar across the bottom that you can use to change the size, close, full screen, and rotate it. The rotation support literally made me say “whoa” out loud. The apps behave just like they are getting rotation information from the accelerometer. The interface changes to the correct landscape or portrait UI and it’s really smooth. Quasar also plugs into the iOS multitasking bar for easy switching between windowed apps.This is a great way to keep multiple things going at once, and finally gives you a use for all those iPhone-only apps that scale poorly to the iPad. The app is still in the early phases of public availability so there are probably going to be bugs, and I assume battery life is going to take a hit. Although, it might be worth the risk to try it out.Quasar is available in the Cydia store for jailbroken iPads, and it can be yours for $9.99.via TheBigBoss

Stay on target Sorry, You Can’t Date Keanu Reeves in ‘Cyberpunk 2077”Star Wars Pinball’ Has Your Favorite Brand in Ball Form October is officially the wallet-murdering month. As it usually does during this time of year, the game industry has once again decided to drop a metric ton of AAA games in time for the holiday rush. This is great if you’re looking for new titles to play, but crappy if you have a small budget. With that said, even if you only pick up a title or two in October you’re still getting something worth playing. Worst-case, scenario, you can circle back to these games when Black Friday hits. Seriously, there’s a lot of gold here that you do not want to miss out on.Red Dead Redemption 2Platform: PlayStation 4, Xbox OneRelease date: October 26Without a doubt, the biggest game releasing this month is none other than Red Dead Redemption 2. Rockstar Games’ Western epic looks like a huge improvement over the original; which says a lot considering how expertly realized that experience was. While it’s true that the game has been in development for a long time, it looks like it’ll be worth the long wait. Everything we’ve seen so far looks absolutely amazing.The only drawback for some might be the fact Red Dead Redemption 2 will not launch with a multiplayer mode. Folks will have to wait for a beta releasing in November for a chance to shoot others online. Personally, I’m not bothered by this. I’m more invested in the feature-rich campaign than the online mode. That isn’t to say I am not looking forward to forming a posse with friends. I am, but I really just want to play the story.You can pre-order Red Dead Redemption on Amazon.Mega Man 11Platform: PC, PS4, Switch, Xbox OneRelease date: October 02Another long-awaited title releasing in October is Mega Man 11. There’s been a lot of drama surrounding the Mega Man franchise for the past few years. In fact some (myself included) didn’t think we’d ever see a new entry this generation. Thankfully, Capcom has finally released a new game starring the Blue Bomber.As I said in my review, Mega Man 11 is a return to form that also pushes the franchise forward. It has the classic gameplay fans have come to love, but it also introduces the new Double Gear system which perfectly complements the core mechanics. Mega Man 11 even has a bit more story than usual, which is a nice addition. I hope this is the start of a full-on Mega Man revival. The world needs the little android now more than ever, as far as I’m concerned.You can buy Mega Man 11 on Amazon.Fist of the North Star: Lost ParadisePlatform: PS4Release date: October 02The most surprising release of October (and perhaps 2018) is Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise. I don’t think I’m alone in saying I never expected a FotNS game developed by the team behind the Yakuza series. Essentially, this is a Yakuza game with a different skin, but it certainly satisfies fans of the classic anime/manga series. Anime-based games are hit or miss. Thankfully, Lost Paradise is a great game through and through.There isn’t more I can say about this title that I didn’t already discuss in my review. Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise is simply a fun experience. The game displays the versatility of both the Yakuza game engine of the FotNS franchise. I hope we get a full-on offshoot franchise after this. But as I said in my review, I’d like the sequel to run on the Yakuza 6 Dragon Engine. We’ll see what happens, but I hope Sega doesn’t miss an opportunity to give the world another great series. Also, Fist of the North Star deserves this kind of treatment in video games. Keep ‘em coming, I say!You can buy Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise on Amazon.Assassin’s Creed OdysseyPlatform: PC, PS4, Xbox OneRelease date: October 05I know it’s cool to hate on Assassin’s Creed, but I’m not down with that. I have no shame in professing my love for Ubisoft’s historically-minded franchise. No other series combines enjoyable Action Adventure mechanics with real-world history quite like this. Some entries are better than others, but more often than not, Assassin’s Creed games deliver the goods. This is certainly true of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.This game is set in Ancient Greece during the Peloponnesian War. Based on what I played, it takes the best elements from Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Assassin’s Creed: Origins. As a huge fan of Ancient Greece, this could potentially become my favorite entry in the series. Every game set in this era usually focuses on the myths and legends. Odyssey will present a realistic depiction of Ancient Greek life, which should be a nice change of pace. Words cannot express how excited I am to play the full game.You can pre-order Assassin’s Creed Odyssey on Amazon.Soulcalibur VIPlatform: PC, PS4, Xbox OneRelease date: October 19Fighting games have enjoyed a rise in popularity in recent years thanks to games like Injustice 2, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Tekken 7, and several others. Now that the land is ripe for fighters, it’s fitting that the long-dormant Soulcalibur awakens from its slumber. As the premier weapons-based fighting game, Soulcalibur VI should be a huge title among the fighting game community.Soulcalibur VI is a return to form for the franchise. It is both a (somewhat) remake of the original Dreamcast game and a completely new entry. I guess the term “soft reboot” applies here. Players can certainly expect the same high-level weapons-based combat the series is known for, along with its colorful cast of characters. This will definitely be a fun game to watch others livestream.You can pre-order Soulcalibur VI on Amazon.Forza Horizon 4Platform: PC, Xbox OneRelease date: October 02If you’re a racing game fan, then you’re likely looking forward to playing Forza Horizon 4. Fundamentally, this delivers the same experience of previous entries. This isn’t a problem considering how fine-tuned (pun intended) the driving mechanics are. The big new feature for this installment is dynamic seasons. Driving in the summer is a completely different experience from cruising during the winter. This adds a whole new level of challenge which players will surely love.While I appreciate the Forza Horizon series, I can’t say I’m particularly excited when a new one releases. Like I said before, I’m not exactly keen on giant open-world games these days… even if it is a racer. Also, I’m still salty EA hasn’t given us a new Burnout Paradise. I know it’s unfair to other racers, but for me, I don’t want to play a big open-world racing game unless it’s Burnout. For everyone else, if you want a solid racing game experience, Forza Motorsport 4 more than satisfies.You can buy Forza Horizon 4 on Amazon.Call of Duty: Black Ops 4Platform: PC, PS4, Xbox OneRelease date: October 12Call of Duty games are notorious for being multiplayer-focused but Black Ops 4 takes things further by completely omitting the single player campaign. Seeing as how most Call of Duty fans only play online, this is probably not going to be a major issue. Besides that, this is the same Call of Duty experience fans have come to expect. Well, that is except for one major new addition…The Call of Duty series is throwing its hat into the battle royale ring with the addition of Blackout mode. This mode features the same basic last-man-standing gameplay popularized by PUBG and Fortnite. The inclusion of this mode has caused some division within the community. CoD players either love it or hate it. There doesn’t seem to be much middle ground. It’ll be interesting to see how the larger community takes to Blackout mode (and the game overall) when Black Ops 4 releases.You can pre-order Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on Amazon.Super Mario PartyPlatform: Nintendo SwitchRelease date: October 05The biggest Nintendo Switch game of the month is Super Mario Party. Players can expect up to 80 different types of mini-games. Players can consider playing this title a workout regimen considering how the games take heavy advantage of the joy-con controllers. If you’re a fan of previous Mario Party titles then this one should be a no-brainer.You can pre-order Super Mario Party on Amazon.Lego DC Super-VillainsPlatform: PC, PS4, Switch, Xbox OneRelease date: October 16Lego games are always fun, and Lego DC Super-Villains is no exception. As the title states, this game focuses on DC’s super-villains, including Joker, Lex Luthor, Harley Quinn, Killer Croc, Poison Ivy, and many more. Based on what I played at E3, this game is every bit as fun as previous Lego titles. It might actually be more enjoyable since you now get to play as the bad guys. Lego DC Super-Villains is great for both kids and adults.You can pre-order Lego DC Super-Villains on Amazon.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has revealed that Alvaro Morata wanted to leave the club, ahead of his potential move to Atletico Madrid.However, Sarri explained that the decision to sign Gonzalo Higuain on loan from Juventus was in part forced by Morata’s desire to leave Stamford Bridge.The Spain international cost a then club record £60 million when he joined the Blues from Real Madrid in July 2017, but now seems set for a loan move back to the Spanish capital to make way for Higuain.Chelsea hat-trick hero Tammy Abraham hopes for more Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Tammy Abraham hopes this season will be his big breakthrough at Chelsea after firing his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Wolves.“I think that Morata is a very good player. I think that Morata has the characteristics for playing in my team,” said Sarri, according to France24.“But Morata, one month ago, said he wanted to play in another team. So it was really very difficult for him to give us the 100 percent for his mental situation, I think.”“From the physical and technical point of view, he is a very good player and suitable for my football. But the situation changed in the last month. So we needed to change.”
Clark County marine patrol deputies searched the Columbia River shoreline for about three hours Monday for a man who went underwater Sunday night, but the search was not successful.Deputy Todd Baker said that dive teams searched Sunday night for nearly three hours after a man in his 20s didn’t resurface while swimming in the river near the Red Lion Hotel Vancouver at the Quay.People who were close by said the man seemed to be fine, Baker said.“They didn’t even know he was in trouble until it was too late,” he said. “He said ‘help’ and went under … drowning is a quick thing.”The unsuccessful search was difficult because the river bottom has a steep slope in the area, “similar to the side of a mountain,” Baker said.“There’s so much debris down there,” he said. “Divers were out there and scoured that area really well … I really expected them to find him.”
MIAMI (WSVN) – A South Florida veteran is talking about his meet-and-greet with Barbra Streisand after he and his family won tickets to see her in concert.The legendary singer shared the spotlight with one of her biggest fans, who happens to be a veteran who is still on a long road to recovery. Army veteran Sergio Lopez said he was overjoyed with just seeing the show, but Streisand decided to highlight him during her concert, Monday night.Lopez said Streisand’s music brought him comfort on the battlefields of Iraq.“I took a shot in the dark. I said, ‘What do I have to lose? Let me send an email, let me see if anyone responds,’” Lopez said.He sent the email about his journey to radio station Easy 93.1. He wrote about how his life was impacted when his Humvee ran over an explosive device, leaving Lopez with permanent hearing loss, a spinal cord injury and a traumatic brain injury.Last week, on Friday, 7News was on hand as the radio station gave Lopez tickets to Streisand’s Miami performance. The story aired and caught the attention of many, including the singer herself. “Then we went to the hotel, turned on the TV, and there was a story that really captured my heart,” she said on stage. “Rather than tell you about it, why don’t I just show it to you.”Streisand showed the 7News story to the crowd while on stage before highlighting Lopez in the audience. “Welcome Sergio Lopez! Thank you for your service to our great country,” she said to Lopez. Lopez was also taken backstage to meet Streisand and actor Jaime Foxx.“Just to be in her presence was such an honor, such a great feeling,” Lopez said.A day after the eventful meeting, Lopez went on with his typical routine, like going to the Veterans Affairs hospital where he receives treatment three times a week.Streisand also signed an American flag that Lopez said he will treasure for a long time, along with all the other kind gestures she’s given to him.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

At Nielsen, Hein managed the company’s media/entertainment brands, which were sold to e5 Global Media in December.United Business Media Think Tank Services CEO Philip Chapnick was appointed to the newly-created position of group chief representative for UBM in China. At the same time, UBM said Think Services will be merged with TechWeb and the new group will be led by TechWeb CEO Tony Uphoff.SmartMoney named Alice Hagge copy chief. Most recently, Hagge served as a freelancer at Time. Prior to that she served as copy chief at Condé Nast Portfolio. Time Inc. has named Karin Tracy publisher of People StyleWatch. Most recently, Tracy served as associate publisher at InStyle.Deborah Jones Barrow, who previously held positions at Meredith Corp. and Primedia, was named executive vice president and publishing director at Montvale, New Jersey-based Wainscot Media.

Previously, Gellman spent more than two decades writing for the Washington Post.
The epicurean segment wasn’t as strong as it is today when Meredith bought Eating Well Media, which also included Recipe.com. However, both brands fit well within the Meredith portfolio, and now epicurean brands are bouncing back. What’s more, the trend of healthy eating and living is arguably bigger than ever, which positions the brand well in today’s market. Meredith Corp. announced it’s increasing the ratebase for EatingWell to 1 million, starting with the July/August issue. This bump marks a 200-percent growth in circulation since the company acquired the brand in 2011. In addition to the bimonthly’s print growth, which includes a healthy list of advertisers—including Whole Foods, Walmart, Walgreens and major pharma companies—the brand’s digital footprint has expanded. Its website attracts upwards of 4.3 million monthly unique visitors according to comScore, which is up 50 percent year-over-year. Much of that growth is fueled by mobile traffic, where 2.4 million of those visits are coming in. That’s a 100 percent year-over-year increase. “What was once a niche trend is now mainstream, and in response our brand has broken ground with new advertisers whose values align with health-conscious choices,” says publisher Deirdre Finnegan in a statement.

The competitiveness of Cyprus’s economy was ranked 41st last year out of 63 countries surveyed, a drop of four positions from 2016, the University of Cyprus said.The fall resulted from a lower ranking in the area of government and corporate efficiency and infrastructure, the Economic Research Centre (ERC) of the academic institution said in an emailed statement on Thursday, citing the findings of the 2018 IMD World Competitiveness Ranking. Cyprus’s overall drop was partly offset by economic performance.The US, Hong Kong, and Singapore were ranked first, second, and third, while Venezuela, Croatia, and Brazil took 63rd, 62nd and 61st positions respectively, according to the report. Cyprus fell behind Kazakhstan, Saudi Arabia, and Latvia and was still ahead of Italy, Indonesia, and India.The financial risk factor, social security contributions, and the increase in homicides were among criteria which last year deteriorated considerably, the ERC said. On the other hand, economic output, gross domestic product per capita, and the fiscal balance improved substantially compared to last year.A public opinion poll demonstrated that what makes the Cypriot economy attractive is its tax regime, its high level of education, the specialised labour force, and the business-friendly environment, the ERC added.The island was 22nd among 63 countries in terms of economic performance, mainly on international investment and the comparably low cost of living, the centre said. On the other hand, the current account deficit, poor diversification of the economy, the high unemployment rate, including youth, had the opposite effect.This year, Cyprus was ranked 28th in terms of government efficiency, down from 22 last year, mainly on the deterioration in the areas of the central bank policy, the country’s credit rating, which remains in the non-investment grade area for almost six years, bureaucracy, justice, disposable income, and legislation on competition and immigration, the ERC said. Last year’s fiscal surplus, helped in partly containing the slippage aided by the island’s tax regime, despite a small drop.The decline in business efficiency to 53 this year from 50 last year, was mainly the result of deterioration in financial criteria such as financial risk factor, stock market, corporate debt, and the digital transformation of companies, partly offset by a minor improvement in administrative practices, the centre added.Lastly, in terms of infrastructure, Cyprus fell one place to 41 mainly on technological and scientific infrastructure, the ERC said.
