UN Security Council removes Iranian bank from sanctions list

The report was submitted to the 15-nation Security Council after UN International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors on the ground verified that Iran has carried out all measures required under what is known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) to enable “Implementation Day” to occur. In July, Iran and a group of six countries – China, France, Germany, Russia, United Kingdom and United States – reached the JCPOA through resolution 2231 (2015), entrusting the IAEA with verifying and monitoring Iran’s commitments. The resolution noted that the JCPOA will “terminate all provisions of previous UN Security Council resolutions on the Iranian nuclear issue […] simultaneously with the IAEA-verified implementation of agreed nuclear-related measures by Iran.” Bank Sepah had been under a Council-mandated asset freeze since 2007. It provides support for the Aerospace Industries Organisation (AIO) and subordinates, including Shahid Hemmat Industrial Group (SHIG) and Shahid Bagheri Industrial Group (SBIG). read more

SMMT welcomes launch of UK automotive sourcing roadmap

ManufacturingOf all UK suppliers, over 70% manufacture their products in the UK.At present, about 80% of all component types required for vehicle assembly operations can be procured from UK suppliers.42% of UK suppliers classify themselves as first tier suppliers, 19% classify as second-tier suppliers while 34% categorise themselves as both first- and second-tier suppliers. The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) has welcomed the launch of a new sourcing roadmap which identifies significant opportunities for increasing the strength of the UK based automotive supply chain.Launched today by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), the UK Sourcing Roadmap – developed in partnership with the University of Cambridge and supported by SMMT – is an important output from the UK Automotive Council and serves as the basis for prioritising actions to support the strengthening of supply chain capabilities in the UK.The findings from the full report reveal that approximately 80% of all components required for vehicle assembly operations in the UK could be procured from locally-based suppliers, leading to lower logistics costs, better support from suppliers, responsive configuration of parts, as well as the flexibility to adjust to volume and product mix fluctuations.  The roadmap identifies several key opportunities for retaining and building supply chain capabilities through visualising the key short-term and medium-term opportunities, as well as the areas where critical support is required for the UK automotive supply chain.“This UK Sourcing Roadmap is a key step towards strengthening the UK supply chain and increasing the competitiveness of the UK, highlighting genuine potential for UK vehicle manufacturers to source more parts and components from home grown suppliers,” said SMMT Chief Executive, Paul Everitt.  “The transition to a low carbon future presents significant opportunities for the UK automotive sector and the roadmap will be a key tool in helping to identify where demand lies for local suppliers developing these new technologies.”The full report is on the Automotive Council website titled, ‘Growing the Automotive Supply Chain: The Road Forward’. Click here to download. The UK supply chain: Key factsIdentified in the report, ‘Growing the Automotive Supply Chain: The Road Forward’. EconomyThe supply chain represents about 40% of the retail price of a passenger car.The combined UK purchasing spend of UK-based automotive, commercial vehicle and yellow goods manufacturers is £7.4bn per annum. The amount purchased in the UK equates to approximately 36% of their global purchasing spend.The UK automotive supply chain typically generates £4.5 – £5bn of added value annually.The UK supplier spends on average £36mn, of which 46% is spent in the UK. EmploymentAround 2,350 UK companies regard themselves as ‘automotive’ suppliers, employing around 82,000 people (data as of the end of 2009).It is estimated that every job in the vehicle assembly supports 7.5 elsewhere in the economy.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) read more

The story behind Gun No 6 used in 11 British shootings and

These were the unremarkable beginnings of Gun No. 6, one of Britain’s deadliest handguns, which went on to be used in 11 shootings in six years. It would become one of the West Midlands Police’s 10 most wanted guns, passed around a stream of violent criminals… It was approaching 3am on February 23 2003 when the trigger was pulled for the first time. The piercing sound of two bullets exploding from the end of a 9mm handgun and rang through Birmingham’s Proctor Street. An anonymous phone call tipped off the police, but no witnesses came forward, let alone any potential victims. Investigators found two stranded bullet cases and sent them to a forensics lab; the gun entered the British criminal record.  read more

Container scanning site being prepared at GNIC says GRA

The container scanning site which is slated for completion in January 2018A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed between the Guyana National Industrial Company (GNIC) Inc. and the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) for the construction of a container scanning facility is moving apace.This is according to the GRA, who in a released statement said that the site, which is slated for completion in January 2018, will enable them to utilize cutting-edge technologies to scan not only imports, but also merchandise destined for foreign jurisdictions which meet the criteria for trading with some of Guyana’s major partners. One such is the Unites States which requires universal scanning of all containers entering that jurisdiction.The GRA said that it became somewhat limited in this capacity after the stationary scanner at the Guyana National Shipping Corporation (GNSC) Lombard Street location became inoperable in 2014 and the mobile x-ray imaging scanner acquired in 2014 also experienced some operational challenges during 2016.According to the Revenue Authority, the mobile X-ray imaging scanner will be situated at this location, together with a new fixed container scanner which is being procured through grant-aid from China, and projected to become operational by mid-2018.Highlighting the benefits of acquiring and consolidating the scanners, GRA said it will “reduce trade transaction costs and time, improve international competitiveness and promote international maritime security and safety. In pursuit of these objectives and the estimated projected increase in container traffic, the GRA has been having ongoing discussions with wharf-owners and other stakeholders in investing in such equipment so that container scanning will form part of their routine operations.” Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)RelatedGNIC to charge $20,000 for any container scanned at Lombard St facility- GRAAugust 20, 2018In “Business”GNIC wharf gets new container scanner facilityJuly 17, 2018In “Business”Auditor General’s report reveals GRA’s billion-dollar container scanners inoperableOctober 19, 2016In “latest news” read more

Now you can gift a Pepsi at social vending machines

first_imgThe rate at which Facebook and Twitter are growing demonstrates why social features are so important for businesses today. But it’s not just the Internet where they are being implemented. Pepsi has decided to create a social vending system to use with its drinks vending machines.It’s a simple concept, but could prove very popular. What Pepsi have done is added the ability to record a 10 second video at one of their new vending machines and then give the gift of a bottle of Pepsi to a friend.AdChoices广告The friend will receive a text message telling them they have a gift waiting for them. When they visit another compatible vending machine they input the code from the message, a drink is dispensed, and the video plays.There’s also a feature called Pepsi Refresh where you can watch videos and sign up for information. In return you will get drink coupons and probably a load of marketing in your inbox regularly.Getting access to the drink gifting is going to be the most interesting feature of these new machines. Whether you can use it depends completely on how quickly and where Pepsi roll them out. With a big touchscreen interface I doubt you’ll be seeing them outside, or in areas that are not locked up at night. They also require a connection to the Internet in order to function properly.As it is just some software running in a connected machine it will be easy for Pepsi to expand its gifting and purchase options. How long before you can buy tickets and digital music through them, for example?We also hope that with these new vending machines Pepsi manages to stock them with its new bottles made from 100% plant material.Read more at Pepsicolast_img read more

Comey sought more Russia resources before firing US Officials

first_imgCarolyn Kaster, APIn this Wednesday, May 3, 2017, photo then-FBI Director James Comey pauses as he testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington, before a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. President Donald Trump abruptly fired Comey on May 9, ousting the nation’s top law enforcement official in the midst of an investigation into whether Trump’s campaign had ties to Russia’s election meddling.(AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster)In the days before his firing by President Donald Trump, FBI Director James Comey told U.S. lawmakers he had asked the Justice Department for more resources to pursue the bureau’s investigation into Russia’s interference in last year’s presidential election, three U.S. officials said Wednesday.The officials said Comey met last week with Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, to make the request. Comey then alerted lawmakers with ties to the concurrent congressional investigations into Russia’s meddling, according to the officials, who insisted on anonymity in order to disclose the private conversations. Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores said it was false that Comey had asked Rosenstein for money for the Russia investigation.The revelations raise new questions about what prompted Trump’s decision to fire Comey. The White House has cited a memo from Rosenstein, in which he criticizes Comey’s handling of last year’s investigation into Democrat Hillary Clinton’s email practices. Rosenstein’s memo makes no mention of the FBI’s Russia investigation, which is probing both Russia’s hacking of Democratic groups last year and whether Trump campaign associates had ties to Moscow’s election interference.Trump defended his decision Wednesday, asserting in a flurry of tweets that both Democrats and Republicans “will be thanking me” for his action. He did not mention any effect the dismissal might have on the FBI and congressional investigations into contacts between his 2016 election campaign and Russia. “He wasn’t doing a good job. Very simply. He was not doing a good job,” Trump said in brief remarks to reporters in the Oval Office, where he was joined by former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.Video Playerhttps://cdn.hpm.io/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/10122233/US-Senate-Comey-3-CR.mp400:0000:0000:52Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Former FBI director James Comey during questioning by the Senate Judiciary Committee on May 3rd, 2017, agreed that Russia provides safe haven for cyber criminals. When asked by Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, Comey said that he does believe Russia is still involved in American politics. Video: Associated PressThe abrupt firing of Comey threw into question the future of the FBI’s investigation and immediately raised suspicions of an underhanded effort to stymie a probe that has shadowed the administration from the outset. Trump has ridiculed the investigations as “a hoax” and denied any campaign involvement with the Russians.Democrats compared Comey’s ouster to President Richard Nixon’s “Saturday Night Massacre” during the Watergate investigation and renewed calls for the appointment of a special prosecutor.Ironically, Kissinger, who was meeting with Trump, was Nixon’s secretary of state in 1973, just moved over from being Nixon’s national security adviser. Earlier Wednesday, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of New York urged Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his deputy, Rosenstein, to appear before the Senate to answer questions about the circumstances surrounding Trump’s action.However, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell brushed aside calls for a special prosecutor, saying a new investigation into Russian meddling would only “impede the current work being done.” He noted that Democrats had repeatedly criticized Comey in the past and some had called for his removal. Trump made a similar case on Twitter, saying Comey had “lost the confidence of almost everyone in Washington,” adding: “When things calm down, they will be thanking me!” Vice President Mike Pence said at the Capitol that Trump had made “the right decision at the right time.” The Justice Department said Sessions was interviewing candidates to serve as an interim replacement. Comey’s deputy, FBI veteran Andrew McCabe, became acting director after Comey was fired.In his brief letter Tuesday to Comey, Trump said the firing was necessary to restore “public trust and confidence” in the FBI. The administration paired the letter with a scathing review by Rosenstein, the recently confirmed deputy attorney general, of how Comey handled the investigation into Clinton’s email practices, including his decision to hold a news conference announcing its findings and releasing “derogatory information” about Clinton. “You can’t make this stuff up,” Rep. Adam Schiff of California, top Democrat on the House intelligence committee, said Wednesday on MSNBC. As to Trump’s contention that the firing had to do with Comey’s decision-making on such matters as the Clinton emails, he said, “Nobody believes that.”Trump, in his letter, pointedly thanked Comey for telling him three times “that I am not under investigation.” The FBI has not confirmed that Comey ever made those assurances to the president. In public hearings, Comey has declined to answer when asked if Trump is under investigation, urging lawmakers not to read anything into that statement.While Comey has drawn anger from Democrats since he reopened the email investigation in the closing days of last year’s campaign, they didn’t buy that justification for his firing. Several Republicans joined them in raising alarms of how it could affect probes into possible coordination between Trump associates and Russia to influence the election.In one of the strongest statements by Republicans, Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina, chairman of the Senate intelligence committee, said, “I am troubled by the timing and reasoning of Director Comey’s termination.”“His dismissal further confuses an already difficult investigation by the committee,” Burr said.Schumer told Trump in a phone call he thought dumping Comey was a mistake. On Wednesday, Trump labeled the Senate minority leader “Cryin’ Chuck Schumer.” Trump will now appoint a successor at the FBI, which has been investigating since late July, and who will almost certainly have an impact on how the probe moves forward and whether the public will accept its outcome.It was only the second firing of an FBI director in history. President Bill Clinton dismissed William Sessions amid allegations of ethical lapses in 1993. Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona said Congress must form a special committee to investigate Russia’s interference in the election.Comey, 56, was nominated by President Barack Obama for the FBI post in 2013 to a 10-year term, though that appointment does not ensure a director will serve the full term.Praised frequently by both parties for his independence and integrity, he spent three decades in law enforcement. Before the past months’ controversies, the former deputy attorney general in the George W. Bush administration was perhaps best known for a remarkable 2004 standoff with top officials over a federal domestic surveillance program. In March of that year, Comey rushed to the hospital bed of Attorney General John Ashcroft to physically stop White House officials in their bid to get his ailing boss to reauthorize a secret no-warrant wiretapping program.But his prominent role in the 2016 presidential campaign raised questions about his judgment and impartiality. Though the FBI did not recommend charges against Clinton for mishandling classified information, Comey was blisteringly critical of her decision to use a personal email account and private internet server during her four years as secretary of state.Comey strongly defended his decisions during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing last week. He said he was “mildly nauseous” at the thought of having swayed the election but also said he would do the same again.Clinton has partially blamed her loss on Comey’s disclosure to Congress less than two weeks before Election Day that the email investigation would be revisited. Comey later said the FBI, again, had found no reason to bring any charges. ___ By JULIE PACE, EILEEN SULLVIAN and ERIC TUCKER Sharelast_img read more

UK police close Climategate investigation

first_imgThe force added that the breach _ which led to the publication of several thousand emails when both leaks are taken into account _ was the result of an attack by a malicious hacker, not the actions of a whistleblower as some had speculated.“We can say that the data breach was the result of a sophisticated and carefully orchestrated attack on the (Climatic Research Unit’s) data files, carried out remotely via the Internet,” the statement said. “There is no evidence to suggest that anyone working at or associated with the University of East Anglia was involved in the crime.”The University of East Anglia said it was disappointed that no one had been caught but expressed gratitude for police’s help.“Clearly, the perpetrators were highly sophisticated and covered their tracks extremely carefully,” university Vice-Chancellor Edward Acton said. “The misinformation and conspiracy theories circulating following the publication of the stolen emails _ including the theory that the hacker was a disgruntled UEA employee _ did real harm to public perceptions about the dangers of climate change.”He said he hoped Wednesday’s announcement would “draw a line under the stressful events of the last two and half years.” Several overlapping inquiries have since vindicated the researchers’ science _ if not their attitude _ but the furor over Climategate dominated debate in the run-up to the crucial 2009 U.N. climate talks in Copenhagen, Denmark. Those talks ended in failure, and world leaders are still struggling to agree a plan to impose caps on the emission of greenhouse gasses blamed for rising temperatures and melting ice caps. A second leak, published to the Internet in 2011, came a week before similar climate talks in Durban, South Africa.The local British police force investigating the breach said Wednesday that its officers had been caught out by the complexity of the attack and the three-year-long statute of limitations on Britain’s Computer Misuse Act.Det. Chief Supt. Julian Gregory of the Norfolk Constabulary said in a statement that his officers “do not have a realistic prospect of identifying the offender or offenders and launching criminal proceedings within the time constraints imposed by law.”Gregory’s force, which has come under criticism from some quarters for its failure to find the culprits, said that it had sought help from counter-terrorism and cybercrime investigators at Scotland Yard, Britain’s domestic extremism task force, as well as outside Internet security consultants. It noted that the perpetrator or perpetrators had masked their activity using “methods common in unlawful internet activity,” but didn’t go into any further detail.

The unguarded and occasionally unprofessional messages dented the reputation of several researchers and provided ammunition to skeptics of mainstream climate science, many of whom seized on the documents to claim that the threat of global warming was being hyped.

FHFA Price Index Slows to 08 Growth in Q2

first_imgFHFA Price Index Slows to 0.8% Growth in Q2 Every major home price tracker released in the last month has shown ongoing—albeit slower—appreciation in June, and the latest report from the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) is no exception.FHFA’s seasonally adjusted House Price Index (HPI), calculated using sales price information from mortgages sold to or guaranteed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, rose 0.4 percent on a monthly basis in June, matching May’s rate of growth. The increase marks seven straight months of gains.On a yearly basis, the index was up 5.1 percent compared with May’s 5.5 percent.The agency also included quarterly comparisons in its June index, finding that home prices were up only 0.8 percent from the first quarter to the second—the first time quarterly price growth has been below 1 percent since early 2012.Compared to the same quarter in 2013, appreciation came in at 5.2 percent.”The extraordinary price appreciation observed over the last few spring seasons was not evident in the second quarter of this year. However, house price appreciation for the nation as a whole remained positive,” said Andrew Leventis, principal economist at FHFA. “FHFA’s data indicate that house price appreciation in the quarter was near or below the baseline rate of inflation in most states.”FHFA’s purchase-only index picked up in 40 states throughout the second quarter, down from 42 states and the District of Columbia in the year’s early months.Of the nine census divisions, the Pacific again experienced the strongest increase in Q2, reporting a 1.3 percent quarter-over-quarter increase and a 9.8 percent gain over last year. Growth was weakest in the East South Central division, where prices fell 0.1 percent over the quarter.At the state level, annual appreciation was led by Nevada, which posted nearly triple the national price growth rate at 14.8 percent. California (11.38 percent), the District of Columbia (10.74 percent), North Dakota (8.68 percent), and Arizona (8.39 percent) made up the rest of the top five states for price appreciation.

first_imgJanuary 15, 2009 In 1952,Vizenzo Solimene, an entrepreneurial ceramist, approached Paolo Soleri about designing a ceramic factory in the southern Italian town of Vietri sul Mare. In two years, the Solimene Ceramics factory stood erect and has since been a bright example of Soleri’s visionary architecture. The daring façade of the building serves a double function. The glass sections allow for natural light to penetrate deep inside, while the solid wall sections, clad in ceramic cones made at the factory, promote the Solimene products. [Photo: Roger Tomalty & text: dkt] For the Solimene Factory, Soleri was asked to provide production, commercial and residential space. He put the residential unit on top of the main structure. From there, the entire building is united by a spiral ramp that envelops the central interior space. The building’s location on a steep hill makes clay delivery from the top easy. From there, the clay would travel down the ramp through the different stages of production, until it reaches the bottom level where it is sold at the Solimene gift shop. The interior of the space breathes with light coming from street windows and roof skylights. [Photo:Alfonso Elia & text: dkt] Here are some of the drawings Soleri presented before construction for the factory begun. The section and plan drawings were executed with pencil and black and colored china ink on velum paper. These early Soleri drawings are now kept at the Soleri Archives located at Arcosanti.
