Rabbi: Jews are flourishing in America. For this, I thank the Catholic Church.

0

“It is important that the priests have good relations with the Jews. If you are an anti-Semite, you cannot be ordained. It is against the teaching of the Church, of ‘Nostra Aetate’,” Cardinal Luis Ladaria Ferrer said, referring to the document which is a key part of the Second Vatican Council agreements on interreligious collaboration. He concluded: “If you don’t agree, you can’t be a priest.

Cardinal Ladaria made the comments to a delegation of 20 rabbis and Jewish leaders (including myself) from the International Jewish Committee for Interreligious Consultations, which visited the Vatican this week for a biannual meeting of the International Conference on leadership. For Cardinal Ladaria, prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, this was perfectly obvious. For us, it remained a marvel. Cardinal Ladaria leads the arm of the Vatican that led the Inquisition, which from the 15th century persecuted Jews for hundreds of years. He is one of many colleagues who expressed similar sentiments to us during our visit, often speaking in glowing terms about the commonalities of our religions.

Until the Second Vatican Council, and in particular the 1965 conciliar document “Nostra Aetate,” a statement on the Church’s relationship to non-Christian religions, such comments were rare. But after years of soul-searching in the aftermath of the Holocaust and after years of private meetings with Jewish leaders, the Catholic Church has not only moved away from language blaming generations of Jews for the death of Jesus, but towards a pure and systematic philo-Semitism. It has since become a source of protection for Jewish communities, with some shortcomings, but overall there has been institutional change to a degree that is hard to imagine.

The Jewish revival in the United States may well be due in part to a miracle of the Catholic Church.

The Pontifical Commission for Religious Relations with Jews, which oversees Vatican policy with the Jewish community, sits on the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity; this structure implies that, in every sense, the Jews are brothers in faith. Cardinal Kurt Koch, a leading Catholic theologian who chairs the commission, meets regularly with his Jewish counterparts around the world, as he did once again on June 27.

Our meetings with key Catholic leaders, including Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Vatican Secretary of State, and Cardinal Leonardo Sandri, Prefect of the Congregation for the Oriental Churches and Vice-Dean of the College of Cardinals, took place in an atmosphere of long-standing friendship. We communicated as siblings who had overcome rivalry and now enjoy our common parentage.

Pope Francis himself considers Rabbi Abraham Skorka, the former chief rabbi of Argentina, as one of his closest friends, thought partners and confidants. His condemnation of anti-Semitism as “neither Christian nor humane” helped vulnerable Jewish communities. (Our delegation missed meeting with Pope Francis this week, who had to cancel his minute with us due to knee pain, but our group has met him several times in the past.)

Pope Emeritus Benedict remained in active theological dialogue with his Jewish counterparts even after his tenure as head of the Church ended. Closer to home, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops maintains close ties with the National Council of Synagogues, co-hosting regular meetings and dialogues and working actively to combat anti-Semitism.

We communicated as siblings who had overcome rivalry and now enjoy our common parentage.

There is a direct link between these signs of profound change and the continued expressions of philo-Semitism within the Catholic Church and a revival of Jewish life taking place in the Jewish community of the United States. For the first time in millennia, the Jewish community can define itself in positive terms, rather than being defined primarily by external hostility. Our population is growing, supported by a growing number of converts; and despite persistent anti-Semitism, the Jewish community is consistently identified in Pew polls as the most valued religious community in the United States. Jewish organizations struggle not because of their failures, but because of their incredible success in helping our population to acculturate and prosper.

It would be hard to imagine this efflorescence of American Jewry without the world’s largest religious organization delegitimizing anti-Semitism and making it obvious that Jews are a beloved part of a larger religious family. The Jewish revival in the United States may well be due in part to a miracle of the Catholic Church.

Jewish and Catholic leaders would do well to safeguard this progress together. Not all current leaders know ‘Nostra Aetate’ so welllike their ancestors a generation ago in either of our communities, suggesting that there is potential for setbacks in the years to come. This may be especially true if future Catholic leaders are not as familiar with the Second Vatican Council or are not personally connected to the Jewish community like Pope Francis or members of the curia our delegation met.

“Nostra Aetate” should become a staple of the curriculum in Jewish and Catholic schools, especially in seminaries where priests and rabbis are trained. It must become a case study in reconciliation, peacebuilding and overcoming the polarization that plagues our society. As Pope Francis conveyed to our delegation this week, through Cardinal Koch, “interreligious dialogue is a privileged path for the growth of fraternity and peace in our world.” And this brotherhood and this peace can combat religious and political extremism.

If “Nostra Aetate” meant “in our time” sixty years ago, we should mean it in our time too.

How much of an FHA loan can I qualify for

0

Looking for a payday loan calculator to see how much of an FHA loan you’ll qualify for? Online lenders such as Conway Green emphasize the importance of a calc payday loan. This article will provide you with the information you need!

FHA Loan Calculator

What is an FHA loan?

FHA loans are government guaranteed loans that are available to borrowers with a low down payment. The FHA limits the amount of money you can borrow for the purchase of a single property to 109% of the home’s appraised value. A payday loan calculator can help you determine how much FHA loan you can qualify for.

How do I qualify for an FHA loan?

There are a few things you need to know about the FHA home loan program before you start your mortgage search. In order to qualify for an FHA loan, you will need to meet certain requirements. First, the purchase price of the house must be between 100 and 125% of the median family income in the area. Additionally, you will need a good credit history and adequate income. Finally, the FHA requires that your down payment be at least 3.5% of the total cost of the home. An online payday loan calculator can help.

Unlike conventional lenders, FHA loans require you to pay a portion of the purchase price in cash. Lenders meet this requirement by requiring a slightly lower down payment. To determine the amount required, simply enter your monthly gross income and expenses into our mortgage calculator and press calculate. The personal loan calculator will recalculate your probable down payment amount.

How can a payday loan calculator help me with my FHA loan?

If you wonder how much of a mortgage you qualify for with an FHA loan, a payday loan calculator can help. The online calculator will allow you to enter all your information and quickly know how much money you would be able to borrow. Simply enter your annual income, debts, and down payment amount to see how much money you could borrow each month. You can also use this calculator to estimate how long it would take you to pay off your loan if you chose a lower interest rate.

Knowing how much money you can borrow with an FHA loan is essential when shopping for a home. The more information you have, the more likely you are to find the right payday loan calculator and get that perfect, safe FHA loan.

  • Alternatives to direct deposit loans | The bank rate

    0

    Direct deposit loans are for borrowers with previous credit problems and experiencing financial difficulties. These debt products are typically deposited into your bank account on the same or next business day, making them a convenient option if you need cash quickly.

    Still, there are downsides to consider. Direct deposits often come with exorbitant interest rates, which means the cost of borrowing is much higher than other financing solutions. So, you should avoid these loans if possible.

    What is a direct deposit loan?

    A direct deposit loan is a type of payday loan readily available for those who need money quickly. Most lenders don’t require a credit check, and you may qualify for financing if you’re at least 18 years old (21 in some states) and can provide a recent pay stub. You must also reside in a state that allows payment loans.

    The downside is that you’ll likely be priced at a high interest rate — often up to 400% — instead of offsetting the risk of default, and you’ll have to repay the loan within two weeks or before your next payday. . Plus, loan amounts are usually much lower than what you would qualify for with a traditional personal loan or other debt product. Therefore, you should explore other options as they might be better suited to your financial situation.

    What types of loans are an alternative?

    Instead of settling for a direct deposit loan if you’re in dire financial straits and need cash fast, consider these alternatives:

    • Personal loan: Unlike direct deposit loans, personal loans come with extended repayment periods, usually between one and five years or more. You’ll also likely get a much lower interest rate than a direct deposit loan, even if your credit score is lower. The average interest rate on personal loans ranges from 10.3% to 12.5% ​​for borrowers with excellent credit ratings, and from 17.8% to 19.9% ​​for borrowers with average credit. Consider an online lender as many will disburse funds to you electronically within one or two business days.
    • Home Equity Loan: Approval for a home equity loan may take a little longer, but you will be able to access a larger amount if you have substantial equity built up in your home. Most lenders require a good or excellent credit score to qualify, and the interest rate is usually lower than what you’d get with a personal loan or credit card. Plus, you may be eligible for a loan term of up to 30 years.
    • Loan from family or friend: Even if you’re not comfortable asking a relative or friend for a loan, you could save a fortune if they agree. Just be sure to come up with an arrangement that works for both parties and put it in writing to avoid disagreements later. Most importantly, only borrow what you can comfortably afford to repay in a timely manner.

    9 alternative options with fast funding times

    If you’re not sure where to look for a personal loan with quick funding times, these lenders are worth considering:

    Before

    Avant offers personal loans between $2,000 and $35,000, and you could receive funds as soon as one business day. The loans are available to borrowers with credit scores as low as 580, and there are no prepayment penalties if you decide to pay off the loan early.

    best egg

    If you have a credit score of at least 700, a personal loan from Best Egg could be a viable alternative. Loans range from $2,000 to $50,000 and overnight financing is available.

    loan club

    Lending Club is another online lender with fast funding times, usually within two days. You can borrow up to $40,000 and the minimum credit score required is 600 to be considered for a loan. Joint applicants are also welcome to apply.

    LightStream

    Same-day financing for personal loans is available through LightStream. It also features some of the lowest interest rates in the industry for borrowers with strong credit ratings. However, you may qualify for a loan with a credit score of 660 or higher.

    PenFed Credit Union

    PenFed Credit Union is viable if you are looking to borrow a small amount or apply with a co-borrower. Most loans are available within one or two business days of approval, and there are no origination fees.

    Upgrade

    This online lender offers personal loans between $1,000 and $50,000 at competitive rates. The upgrade doesn’t disclose a minimum credit score or income requirement, but if approved, you could have the funds in your account within a day.

    Reached

    Upstart might also be a good choice if you have a lower credit score. Although you can receive an APR of up to 35.99%, it is far less than what you will pay with a direct deposit loan. Plus, you may be eligible for next business day financing.

    At the end of the line

    Direct deposit loans are a convenient option if you need cash quickly. However, they should only be used as a last resort as they often come with high interest rates and are payable over a short period.

    Instead, consider a personal loan from the recommendations above to meet your short-term financing needs. Many offer online prequalification so you can assess your eligibility for a loan and view potential rates.

    Review: 3 books capture the stories, terror and inspiration at the heart of human migration

    Undocumented migration is an issue that consistently figures prominently in public policy discourse in the United States. Unfortunately, between buzzwords like ‘undocumented’, ‘asylum’ and ‘refugee’, the human element at the heart of the problem is often pushed to the fore rather than seen as people seeking to improve their situation. in life. Literature that refocuses people and sheds light on why undocumented migrants around the world navigate this country’s broken, for-profit immigration system is crucial. Fortunately, there are several recent non-fiction accounts that achieve this, and do so while adding to the discussion and examining the diversity, talent and heart of the undocumented migrant community.

    “Somewhere We Are Human: Authentic Voices on Migration, Survival, and New Beginnings”, edited by Reyna Grande and Sonia Guiñansaca, is a powerful collection of prose pieces, poems and visual art that celebrates the plurality of migrants present in United States. A timely and necessary text, this collection of personal stories expands the discussion of migration by spotlighting members of the LGBTQ community and showing how something as incredibly difficult and complex as migration can be made even more difficult by something as fundamental as her identity and her sexuality.

    “Somewhere We Are Human” proves that very different voices telling unique stories can, when presented together, become a very cohesive and very human manifesto. Featuring artists from Mexico – which is often the only country discussed when undocumented migration is discussed – as well as the Dominican Republic, South Asia, El Salvador, Argentina, Chile , Nigeria, Ethiopia, Brazil, Taiwan, Malaysia, Vietnam and the Philippines, the voices of “Somewhere We Are Human” exist in a very real space in which immigration status, creativity and identity coexist and have a huge impact on each other.

    Artists identify as “queer/trans/migrant,” “AfroIndigenous,” or “Chronically Malade and Disabled Black Lesbian Immigrant,” and these biographies—those identities and the role they play—highlight an important reality: migrating is difficult , it can be much worse when you have to exist – and then move – in unwelcoming spaces as someone whose identity is misunderstood, discriminated against, or viewed as problematic.

    “Asylum” by Edafe Okporo. Photo: Simon & Schuster

    Being gay and having your sexuality as a reason for leaving your country is central to Edafe Okporo’s “Asylum: A Memoir & Manifesto”. A memoir about leaving Nigeria to save one’s life, ‘Asylum’ is a heartbreaking read in which persecution based on sexual orientation drives it all. Okporo struggled with his sexuality from an early age, and his time immersed in religion and trying to change only made things worse. On the eve of his 26th birthday, after surviving a few assaults for homosexuality, Okporo woke up to insults thrown at him just outside his house in Abuja, a city in Nigeria a little more welcoming than his hometown, the small town of Warri. , where masculinity was celebrated.

    Fearing for his life after surviving a brutal attack and being exposed to the wider community because he was going to be rewarded for his work fighting for better education and health care for the LGBTQ community in Nigeria, Okporo fled to the United States. Instead of welcoming him, the US immigration system locked him up for “five months and fourteen days”.

    “Asylum” is a touching, informative and honest chronicle of Okporo’s life in Nigeria – a country that brutally rejects LGBTQ people – and a story that exposes some of the shortcomings of the US immigration system as seen from the inside.

    Finally, Susan Hartman’s “City of Refugees: The Story of Three Newcomers Who Breathed Life into a Dying American Town” follows three refugees who have forged a new life in Utica, NY. With a keen eye for detail and a lot of heart, Hartman follows the three for eight years: Sadia, a young Somali Bantu girl with incredible energy and an unforgettable personality; Ali, an Iraqi translator; and Mersiha, a Bosnian immigrant who dreams of opening a business. Hartman crafts a nuanced narrative about each creating a new life in a new land while simultaneously retaining memories of home and not losing their identity.

    The beauty of “City of Refugees” is that it tackles all the bad things that happen to these people while reveling in their dreams and growth. Sadia, for example, becomes a young woman with her humor intact: When Hartman reconnects with her after Hartman gains 30 pounds, Sadia celebrates Hartman’s change and says she looks “delicious, delicious.”

    Taken together, these three books show the ugly side of undocumented migration and the need for humane reform that takes into account the reasons that force so many millions to leave their loved ones and their countries. The books also shed light on the dreams of those who give up everything they know in search of a better future. Each book should be required reading because each focuses on people, and that should be at the center of any conversation about undocumented migration.

    Argentina opts for US-built Chinook helicopters

    0

    The Argentine country has accelerated its progress towards the acquisition of four new CH-47 Chinook heavy helicopters, manufactured by Boeing, in the United States. According to US military sources in Buenos Aires, the purpose of this plan is to meet an operational requirement originally issued in 2011. The initiative was supposed to provide new helicopters to both the military and the air force, for a variety of reasons: civilian support, disaster relief, special forces support, and tactical transport.

    According to unnamed military sources – for security reasons, of course – the US government had previously considered the Russian-made Mil Mil-26. Eventually, however, they chose not to purchase them, primarily due to their size and maneuvering limitations.

    It wouldn’t be the first time the Argentine Air Force used the CH-47 Chinook helicopter. Between 1980 and the year 2000, their Air Force operated at least three. Additionally, the Argentine military received a pair of their own CH-47 helicopters, also in 1980, but they deployed them both to the Falkland Islands in 1982. Unfortunately, one of them was destroyed and the other was captured by British forces.

    Indeed, this plane acquisition plan is only a small part of a larger government action to restore Argentina’s defense capabilities, which benefits from a special fund created in 2020. This fund is colloquially known as FONDEF, an acronym that translates into English as the National Defense Fund. It provides approximately $400 million for military equipment each year.

    On June 9, the Argentine Defense Minister, Jorge Taiana, spoke before the Argentine Senate. In this discussion, he underlined the importance of FONDEF with regard to the fortification of the country’s army.

    Specifically, Taiana pointed out that FONDEF has a short and medium plan for these investments. In reality, however, the money will be spent on things like new fighter jets, cyber defense technology, rockets, submarines, missiles, radars and drones, and other such components.

    Acquiring their first fleet of new fighter jets is one of the Argentine Air Force’s highest priorities. They also considered the FC-1/JF-17 Thunder, which is a joint development project with China’s Chengdu Aerospace Corp, as well as the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex.

    Buenos Aires Weather | Argentina seeks spot diesel shipments amid national shortage

    0

    Argentina’s state-owned oil company is looking to buy diesel on the spot market as demand for fuel is at its highest level in 12 years.

    YPF SA has offered 850,000 barrels of low sulfur diesel for delivery in July and August, according to a document seen by Bloomberg last week. For nearly three months, Argentina has grappled with fuel rationing as demand recovers from the pandemic.

    The demand for additional diesel comes as farmers across the country need it the most to harvest and transport crops. Globally, fuel supplies are tight following the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

    Despite the need for more fuel, refiners are reluctant to step up because government controls on the price of crude make it less attractive to import the kind of oil they need to boost production, said Felipe Perez, director of the endorsement at S&P Global Inc. telephone interview from Los Angeles.

    The government monitors all domestic oil sales as an indirect tool to control fuel prices. Currently, Medanito’s domestic oil is selling domestically at around US$65 per barrel. To import oil into world markets, refiners would pay more than US$100.

    “Argentina is in trouble because refiners don’t want to pay more for imported oil if they can pay much less for domestic oil,” Perez said. “Additionally, the government is pressuring fuel producers not to raise prices, which keeps refinery margins in check.”

    Still, Argentine refineries increased oil processing in April to a four-year high of 81.4% of capacity. But that’s a far cry from the 86.4% peak seen in 2017, according to government data. Diesel demand peaked in data dating back to 2010.

    To help boost supply, the government last week announced plans to temporarily increase the biodiesel content of the diesel blend and to force YPF to stop selling fuel to foreign-registered vehicles crossing the border. to refuel at a lower price.

    Sketchy ads on TikTok encourage high-interest payday loans

    0

    A group of secret TikTok advertisers are using sketchy tactics to push massive loans that experts say could violate misleading advertising laws, The Post has learned.

    Some of the ads tease “almost instant” five-figure deposits despite bad credit, while others seem to imply that they are part of government “inflation programs” and use the logos of news organizations like CNN.

    Cash-strapped borrowers who click on links in many advertisements are asked to provide sensitive personal information, including their social security and bank account numbers.

    “At best, these videos are designed to make you give up information you shouldn’t be giving away, which will lead to more solicitations,” John Breyault, vice president of the National Consumer League advocacy group, told The Post. “At worst, this is a complete scam designed either to take your money or information for fraudulent purposes.”

    A typical TikTok loan ad opens with a photo of the words “US Government Inflation Program 2022” on a video from the US Capitol.

    Some advertisements appear to imply that they are part of the government’s “inflation programs”.
    ICT Tac

    “The US government’s inflation program helps Americans get a loan, even with bad credit,” a voiceover says in somewhat broken English. “You can get up to $50,000 by filling out a simple form.”

    The ad then cuts to a shot from the point of view of a person holding stacks of hundred dollar bills in a car.

    “I use my money to cover my bills, fill up on gas for the rest of the year, and cover my medical needs,” the voiceover says. “Click the link below, fill out the form in as little as 60 seconds and see how much you can get. Thank me later.”

    People who click on the link, which leads to a site called “Lavish Finances”, are asked to fill out forms with personal information, including bank details, social security numbers and addresses.

    Lavish Finance says it then passes applicants’ information to lenders, who can respond with loan offers with annual interest rates of up to 35.99% for terms of up to four years. If someone were to take out a loan under the sites maximum terms – $50,000 repaid at 35.99% APR over four years – the user would ultimately be liable for more than $137,000.

    Breyald said the loans advertised by Lavish Finance and similar sites are “terrible” for the vast majority of consumers.

    “35.99% APR is higher than some of the highest credit card loans,” he said.

    Breyault and Bartlett Naylor, a financial policy advocate with consumer rights group Public Citizen, said the ads risked violating Federal Trade Commission rules on misleading advertising.

    Other advertisements use the logos of news organizations like CNN.

    “If it is implied that it is a government program and you click on it and it is not a government program, my advice is: you are being scammed,” Naylor said, advising people to “stay away” and calling on TikTok to take a tougher line against people. loan announcements.

    After The Post contacted TikTok to comment on the ads from Lavish Finances and other companies, the social media site removed them over violations of its advertising policies, which prohibit “misleading, inauthentic and deceptive behavior”.

    “Advertisers and ad content must follow our Community Guidelines, Advertising Guidelines, and Terms of Service, and content that violates these guidelines will be removed,” a TikTok spokesperson told The Post.

    When The Post emailed the only email address available on the Lavish Finances website for comment, messages bounced back. A phone number listed on the site went directly to a voicemail, which was full. The Lavish Finances site lists the address of a building in Dover, Del., which sells “virtual office services” for $50 per month.

    The FTC said it does not comment “if it is investigating a specific company, individual, or business practice.” The agency has not announced any action against any of the sites mentioned in this article, but it frequently prosecutes companies that the agency believes falsely claim to be affiliated with the US government.

    Lavish Finances is far from the only advertiser to use questionable techniques on TikTok. An ad that links to a site called PersonalLoanPro shows what appears to be a fake CNN segment. It flashes “BREAKING NEWS” that “AMERICANS CAN NOW CLAIM UP TO $50,000”.

    “They’re showing it again,” a man says, pointing to a television showing the segment. “That’s how I got my money.”

    The camera then pans to the man’s face as he says: ‘A new benefit was just released last week allowing Americans to claim up to $50,000. You don’t need a credit history at all — no bank requirements. I did it myself and made $8,000 in two days.

    A similar Facebook version of the video was slapped with a ‘false information’ warning in May – but as of mid-June it was still being advertised on TikTok without any disclosure.

    Some lending sites ask users to enter sensitive information, including their social security number.

    Other advertisements related to PersonalLoanPro feature various narrators gushing about receiving money through the site. In one, the text “I got $45,000 almost instantly” appears onscreen as a female narrator walks up to a man and says, “Baby, where did you get all that money ? »

    The man shows an online bank account on his phone and says, “That’s really crazy. I just got a $45,000 loan and it’s already in our bank account.

    In another ad, a male narrator sitting in a car brandishes wads of hundred-dollar bills and raves that a loan is the “last-minute miracle I desperately needed.”

    Like Lavish Finance, PersonalLoanPro asks people to enter sensitive information, including their social security numbers. He says he will then refer them to lenders who can offer them loans with interest rates of up to 35.99% APR on terms of up to 15 years.

    “They basically say something like, ‘Nobody else knows, I wish I knew sooner’ — and they show you stacks of cash,” Breyault said. “It’s laughable at first glance, but it’s a common tactic.”

    PersonalLoanPro’s site says it’s owned by a Durango, Colorado-based company called On The Barrelhead. Email inquiries sent to both PersonalLoanPro and On The Barrelhead went unanswered, while a call to an On The Barrelhead site phone number went straight to voicemail.

    An ex-Argentine officer will be tried in Miami in a massacre case

    0

    A former Argentine naval officer is on trial Monday in Miami for his alleged role in a 1972 massacre of political prisoners in his native country.

    Roberto Guillermo Bravo, who has lived in the United States for decades, is the only former Argentine military officer accused of taking part in the so-called Trelew massacre who has not yet been brought to justice. Three others were convicted in Argentina and sentenced to life.

    “For nearly 50 years, the families of the victims of the Trelew Massacre have waited for all perpetrators to be held accountable,” said Katerina Siefkas, an attorney with the Center for Justice and Accountability, who is one of those representing the plaintiffs.

    “Our clients seek the opportunity to present their story and obtain the justice ‘which they have long been denied,'” she said.

    Bravo has long avoided trial in his homeland because Argentinian law prohibits anyone from being tried if they are not present. The United States denied Argentina’s extradition request in 2010, but he now faces a civil trial under the Torture Victims Protection Act, a law that allows legal action against residents of the United States for acts allegedly committed elsewhere.

    More than a dozen witnesses are scheduled to testify in US federal court about what happened at the Almirante Zar naval base in the Patagonian town of Trelew in August 1972.

    Bravo and other former military officers allegedly shot and killed 16 unarmed political prisoners and seriously injured three others, according to the lawsuit filed in federal court in Miami in October 2020. They also allegedly participated in torture and executions extrajudicial actions that violated both international and US law.

    The official version of events claimed that the political prisoners tried to escape, but after democracy returned in 1973, the three survivors regained their freedom and told a different story. These three people were later kidnapped and murdered by the military after a 1976 coup that ushered in Argentina’s last military dictatorship.

    The four complainants are relatives of Raquel Camps, Eduardo Cappello, Alicia Krueguer and Marcela Santucho. Krueguer, Cappello and Santucho were among those killed, while Camps was one of the first three survivors.

    Bravo left Argentina in 1973. He first worked as an Argentine military attaché and after his retirement he remained in the United States, where he became a citizen in 1987.

    The civil lawsuit that begins Monday seeks economic compensation for damages caused by Bravo’s alleged role in the murders.

    His lawyers argue that the killings did not take place during a massacre, but rather resulted from a shootout between military officers and a group of guerrillas trying to break out of prison.

    Bravo “has always been an honest and dedicated businessman with an unblemished record. He continues to forcefully deny these false allegations and he will vigorously defend this lawsuit and his honor,” Neal Sonnett said when filing the lawsuit in 2020.

    The incident occurred under General Alejandro Lanusse’s dictatorship at a time when left-wing guerrilla groups had begun to operate in Argentina. Human rights organizations say this paved the way for the widespread human rights abuses that took place during Argentina’s last military dictatorship in 1976-1983.

    Argentina’s judiciary began formally investigating the Trelew murders after the repeal of amnesty laws that protected military officers in 2003.

    Three other former military officers – Luis Sosa, Emilio Del Real and Carlos Marandino – were charged with participating in the massacre with Bravo and were sentenced to life in prison.

    The legal complaint filed by the plaintiffs in the US case alleges that Bravo threatened prisoners, tortured them, forced them to strip and faked their execution.

    He says that on August 22, 1972, Bravo and three other military officers entered the prisoners’ cells while they were sleeping and ordered them to leave and form a line against a wall while looking down.

    “Some fled to their cells. Bravo and the other officers searched the cells for survivors to execute,” the complaint states.

    The plaintiffs say their goal is not financial.

    “What they really want is for Mr. Bravo to return to Argentina and stand trial,” said Ajay Krishnan at a law firm that also represents the plaintiffs. “But if they can’t get it, and they still haven’t been able to, they do what they have to do, which is right now the trial.”

    Buenos Aires Weather | The Supreme Court has Cristina in its sights

    0

    Corruption is the art of turning power – whether that of a government minister, judge, petty bureaucrat or traffic cop – into cash. This is something that Argentine politicians have always been pretty good at. Over the years, a number of them have managed to amass considerable fortunes by exacting bribes for favors given to businessmen willing to play by what are still widely regarded as the rules. in force. Knowing that so many people on both sides of the political divide have been taken it would be extremely difficult to try and get them all to book, they had good reason to assume they would have little to fear .

    This happy state of affairs may be about to change. People from all walks of life and most ideological persuasions are beginning to link the inability of the “political class” to run the country reasonably competently with the corrupt behavior of some of its leaders, beginning with Cristina Fernández de Kirchner and her her late husband Néstor. If this way of thinking takes hold in the huge belt of slums whose inhabitants regularly vote for shady individuals who prefer not to explain how they got the money they use to buy their expensive mansions and cars, we could soon witness a major judicial offensive against politicians, magistrates, etc.

    Argentina’s vice president is well aware that to avoid jail time she will have to retain enough political power to scare away those out-of-this-world idealists who insist that no one, no matter how eminent, should be above the law. For years, she and her legal advisers have argued that bringing her to justice, let alone giving her a long sentence behind bars, could unleash a political storm fierce enough to set the country’s political institutions on fire. Until recently, this argument worked, but as Cristina’s power diminishes, it becomes less compelling.

    Supreme Court justices understand the close relationship between political power and corruption. Otherwise, they would not have waited more than 10 years before accepting, as they have just done, that she be judged for having allegedly profited (as Néstor would have done too) from the dozens of public works contracts which were attributed, among others, to families. servants such as Lázaro Báez, the former bank clerk who in record time became the multi-millionaire boss of a construction company that never completed most of the roads it was supposed to build and was placed in inside for money laundering in April 2016.

    Other partners in the Kirchner family business also found themselves in deep trouble, but despite the huge amount of incriminating evidence that was accumulated and made public, Cristina and her son Máximo – who inherited enough millions from her father to make him the wealthiest member of the Lower House – were considered too powerful to share their fate.

    Are they? Their future depends on what the opinion polls will say in the months to come. If, as might well happen, support for Cristina drops well below the roughly 25% where it currently sits, the legal system will likely kick into high gear, but if it were to go back to where it was a few months ago , many prosecutors and judges would be more cautious. Here, as in most other countries, including the United States and the United Kingdom, magistrates are susceptible to being swayed by political winds. For now anyway, they’re blowing against Cristina and her boy, and with the economy sliding into what could be a most nasty recession made worse by runaway inflation, they’re unlikely to change direction anytime soon. early.

    In a desperate attempt to profit from the dismal performance of what, after all, is her own government, Cristina tries to pretend that she is the natural leader of the opposition and therefore has nothing to do with the nasty things that could be reserved for the people of the country. She blames her replacement, Alberto Fernández, a man she sincerely despises, for everything that goes wrong. No doubt she would forgive him for his mismanagement of the economy and his insane talk if, thanks to the skills of a lawyer he is credited with, he somehow managed to have all the charges thrown out. brought against her, but despite his rhetorical efforts to bully the Supreme Court into leaving her alone, he fails in this as in so many other things.

    Corruption is bad not only for simple ethical reasons, but also because it causes a lot of material harm to people by allowing the administration to get away with not only theft but also the systematic misappropriation of resources. In corrupt societies, almost nothing works properly because too many people are fully occupied with trying to get their hands on loose change that is stolen or covering up their relatives, cronies and political bosses, and therefore do not care about what they are supposed to do. TO DO. For them, efficiency is undesirable because it makes it harder for them and their friends to steal the money they think should be theirs.

    A good example of what can happen is provided by the Russian armed forces which, to the great satisfaction of the Ukrainians and their friends elsewhere, are cluttered with outdated and poorly maintained equipment because the men in charge were much more interested to transfer into their own bank accounts an ever larger share of the military budget than providing their troops with what they need. Apparently, it never occurred to Vladimir Putin that something like this could happen in the kleptocratic paradise he helped create.

    While it is impossible to estimate how widespread corruption has contributed to Argentina’s current situation, there is little doubt that had its leaders been on the whole as honest as their counterparts in Europe from the North, say, or Singapore, it could now be at least as prosperous as many developed countries. Corruption distorts just about everything, including how governments deal with economic and social problems. Placed in the shelter of a political class which behaves like a self-help association protecting its own members, corrupt officials are practically required to place their own interests well above those of the community which, for them, is n is there to provide them with the votes they need to stay in business.

    Judge approves billion dollar settlement 1 year after Surfside condo collapse

    0

    By Denise Royal and Elizabeth Wolfe, CNN

    On the eve of the one-year anniversary of the catastrophic condominium collapse in Surfside, Florida, a judge has approved a settlement of about $1 billion for those affected by the disaster that killed 98 people, confirmed Thursday an attorney for the plaintiffs.

    The judge’s decision finalizes an interim settlement that was reached last month between multiple parties and prevents the claims from going to trial. The settlement amount will be awarded to survivors, families of deceased victims and owners of damaged property.

    The collapse of most of the Champlain Towers South building on June 24, 2021 suddenly transformed what was once a thriving residential building into a devastating scene as residents were crushed or trapped under a huge pile of twisted metal and concrete.

    It ultimately took search and recovery teams a month to find and identify the 98 victims, aged 1 to 92. The tragedy deeply affected a close-knit Jewish community in South Florida and affected families around the world, including in Argentina, Paraguay and Colombia. In some cases, entire families have been killed.

    An emotional scene unfolded in the Miami courtroom Thursday as Miami-Dade County Circuit Court Judge Michael Hanzman presided over a three-hour settlement hearing, according to plaintiffs’ attorney Rachel Furst. who described the proceedings to CNN as “remarkable and moving.” .”

    In addition to the affected families and owners, parties involved in the settlement include the condominium association, the city of Surfside and engineering, architectural and other companies involved in the development and maintenance of the property and neighboring developments.

    The finalized agreement reflects the full amount of money available to victims, including insurance claim payments and the multimillion-dollar early sale of the land of the property where the tower once stood. Families of victims will now be able to submit claim forms to receive compensation from the settlement fund.

    During the hearing, at least three plaintiffs in the class action came out in favor of the settlement – a parent whose child was killed, the spouse of a victim who died in the collapse and a person whose home was destroyed, Furst said.

    When the tentative agreement was reached last month, Hanzman hailed the speed with which it was reached as “beyond extraordinary.”

    “We are delighted to offer this recovery to the victims, which we believe is extremely meaningful and a great step forward in bringing an end to this horrific tragedy,” said Harley Tropin, one of the lead attorneys. plaintiffs, to CNN when the tentative agreement was reached. announcement.

    In March, Hanzman approved a separate $83 million settlement for the heirs of deceased victims and former condo owners whose homes were destroyed.

    • Challenger Exploration (CEL) says latest results from its Hualilan project in Argentina have ‘consolidated’ its prospects for resource expansion
    • The Company has received assays from the first holes completed after the first MRE which include 28.5 meters at 5.3 g/t gold equivalent and 2.4 meters at 64.7 g/t gold equivalent
    • Challenger says these intersections, which are outside the current EMR limit, confirm that mineralization at Hualilan remains open in all directions.
    • The company has now completed 197,000 meters of its planned 204,000 meter diamond drill program with assays to be reported progressively over the next four months.
    • Shares of the company are trading steadily at 19.5 cents as of 2:15 p.m. AEST

    Challenger Exploration (CEL) has received the results of the first drill holes completed following the recent Mineral Resource Estimate (MRE) of the Hualilan gold project in Argentina.

    These holes were not included in the recent inaugural MRE of 2.1 million gold equivalent ounces and targeted extensions of mineralization.

    Positively for the company, the drilling revealed significant intersections outside the current EMR boundary.

    Highlighted results include 28.5 meters at 5.3 grams per tonne (g/t) gold equivalent, 2.4 meters at 64.7 g/t gold equivalent, 6.6 meters at 6, 4 g/t gold equivalent and 15 meters at 3.9 g/t gold equivalent.

    The initial MRE was based on 125,700 meters of drilling and the company has now completed 197,000 meters of its planned diamond drill program of 204,000 meters.

    “Even more exciting is that if the assays confirm what we have recorded in several recent holes, we have important new areas to follow in addition to the areas we are currently targeting,” Mr. Knaur said.

    “It now appears firmly that the mineralization at Hualilan will remain open at the end of the current 204,000 meter program.”

    Challenger expects to receive results for the next 64,500 meters within the next four months.

    The company’s shares were trading steadily at 19.5 cents as of 2:15 p.m. AEST.

    42% of employees run out of money before payday ― Earnipay

    0

    Earnipay, a fintech company that provides flexible, on-demand access to employees, revealed that 42% of employees in Africa run out of money before payday.

    According to the company, this causes employers to lose up to 27 days of working hours per employee per year due to money stress.

    Speaking at a media roundtable in Lagos on Wednesday, June 22, 2022, Earnipay Founder and CEO Mr. Nonso Onwuzulike said that for employers to improve the productivity of their teams, eliminate the financial stress that prevents even star employees from performing optimally. , companies can take advantage of Earnipay’s services to take care of weekly or bi-weekly salaries that suit the lifestyle of certain low-income earners.

    According to him, 67% of employees want more financial support from their employer.

    “Most of the African workforce is paid monthly, but lives on paycheck to paycheck. Unlike more developed countries like the United States, where weekly or bi-weekly wages can support this lifestyle, low monthly wages.

    “So what ends up happening is that wage earners take payday advances or borrow money from payday lenders and loan sharks to offset their day-to-day expenses and emergencies, eventually falling into a debt cycle,” he said.

    While explaining that Earnipay does not provide payday advance, but funds equivalent to 50% of days worked in a month, Onwuzulike noted that a few individual companies have sought to address this internally and allow employees to access their daily salary as they work for it.

    The company says it wants to improve the financial well-being of employees by partnering with employers and seamlessly integrating with their payroll systems to offer its services to employees, who can then track and withdraw their accrued wages through application any day of the month.

    “At the end of the month, the employer deducts the withdrawn amount from the employee’s salary, reimburses Earnipay with it, and then pays the employee the balance as salary for that month,” Onwuzulike said.

    Financial worries, he said.

    are the number one cause of workplace distractions. The monthly pay cycle means employees are often unable to pay day-to-day expenses, cover emergencies, or take advantage of immediate financial opportunities.

    “As a result, they are exposed to predatory payday loans and get stuck in endless cycles of debt with unrealistic repayment periods and high interest rates.

    “Earnipay exists to solve this problem and provide an ethical alternative to instant access to pay while helping employers improve employee engagement and retention at zero cost to their business.

    “The future of pay is on-demand, and we’re thrilled to be pioneering this incredible solution in Africa. I’m excited to partner with a group of highly respected investors who understand the need for a platform like ‘Earnipay to improve access to wages and, above all, to improve the financial well-being of employees in Africa, he said.

    Also speaking, other team members including Esther John, Sakes and the Business Development Manager explained that Earnipay charges employees a nominal processing fee of NGN 250 or NGN 500 for this access. There are no refunds or interest charges because employees have access to what they worked for, it’s their money, they said.

    The funding round was led by Canaan, with participation from XYZ Ventures, Village Global, Musha Ventures, Ventures Platform, Voltron Capital and Paystack.

    According to the company, Earnipay has received US$4 million and with the seed funding, Earnipay will accelerate the development of its technology platform to serve large enterprise employers. In doing so, the technology company will provide employees with the tools they need to make better financial decisions and improve their quality of life.

    The company plans to offer its pay-on-demand solution to 200,000 employees by the end of 2022 and has already served more than 40 companies, outsourcing companies and HR solution providers in Nigeria.

    Employers can sign up for Earnipay through the web platform to access the employer dashboard and add their employees in a simple process.

    Transfer news: Argentina midfielder Fernandez approaches Benfica

    0

    Buenos Aires, June 23 (IANS): Portuguese club Benfica are close to signing highly-rated River Plate midfielder Enzo Fernandez, according to Argentine media.

    The Portuguese club have offered to pay 18 million euros for 75% of Fernandez’s economic rights, media outlet Ole reported on Thursday.

    He added that the 21-year-old is likely to stay with the Buenos Aires giants until the European winter.

    Fernandez has made 49 appearances for River, scoring 11 goals and providing nine assists, since his promotion from the club’s youth academy in 2019.

    The former Argentina youth team player has also reportedly attracted interest from Wolverhampton Wanderers and AC Milan, Xinhua reports.

    Meanwhile, in other transfer news, Southampton are trying to fend off inquiries about James Ward-Prowse, with West Ham joining Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham in a midfield move. The Saints have demanded £75million for Ward-Prowse.

    Ajax are keen to bring Steven Bergwijn from Tottenham back into the Dutch top flight. Spurs want at least £25million for the winger, but the Dutch champions are likely to meet that demand as they have some cash in their pockets following Sebastien Haller’s successful move to Borussia Dortmund.

    Metro Area Parks Work to Diversify Visitors, Programming

    0



    Growing up in Argentina, Gustavo Rosso played street football like almost every other kid. There were no obstacles: it was not necessary to have money or a relative to register or drop you off. It doesn’t even need special studs. All it took was a bullet.

    But as a parent of football-age kids in Minnesota, Rosso realized that a lot of kids here don’t have the opportunity to play like that. So he decided to do something about it: he successfully pitched the idea of ​​a fee-free, barrier-free camp in different park systems. Last week, 25 kids showed up for the first Futbol Fan MN camp in Bloomington.

    “In Minnesota, we are blessed with a diverse state where different minorities can feel welcome playing football,” Rosso said, “from African communities to Hmong to Asian communities to people of this country”.

    Park programming costs money: there are t-shirts, field fees and coaches. But thanks to a Metropolitan Council grant program that began in 2019 to increase diversity and inclusion in parks, Rosso’s camp is just one of many free programs offered at various park systems across Minnesota. this summer.

    Individual park systems apply for grants and implement the projects. In 2021, the Met Council approved just over $2 million in grants for 23 programs. Programs include a drowning prevention course in St. Paul, a ski lesson at Battle Creek Regional Park, and a project to create more welcoming ways to access Theodore Wirth’s Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden. The Met Council will not award grants this year so that it can accumulate interest income on park funds which it will award in the fall of 2023.

    The grants coincide with more park systems using their own money to fund full-time positions that work in the area of ​​equity. Most of the 10 parks departments associated with the Met Council, including the Minneapolis and St. Paul parks systems, employ a full-time equity specialist. Some smaller departments share this position with the city council.

    Awareness of diversity and equity is a big job: 3 out of 4 visitors to state and national parks are white, according to The Pew Charitable Trusts. A survey by the National Recreation and Parks Association showed that the biggest barrier to inclusivity is funding, followed by staffing. Met Council research in 2019 showed that investing in staff development and hiring diverse employees helps young people gain more equitable access to parks.

    Since outdoor spaces promote public health and personal well-being, it’s essential that everyone has equitable access to parks, said Met Council researcher Darcie Vandegrift.

    “If some people are underserved [in parks]then we have a huge health inequity that we need to address as a priority,” Vandegrift said.

    First effort

    In 2015, the District of Three Rivers Park hired Amanda Fong as a Community Engagement Supervisor to focus on increasing diversity and inclusion among its visitors. She became one of the first people in Minnesota hired for such a position; across the country, most park systems began creating similar positions after 2020.

    Fong has noticed an increased awareness of equity in the outdoors during her seven years on the job.

    “Outdoor and natural spaces have not been spaces where everyone has felt welcome,” she said. “There have been policies that have excluded people, and now there is a lot more interest in working to change that.

    Last month, May Yang-Lee became the first person hired as Parks Equity Program Coordinator in Washington County. She already sees the impact of her work: she connected people with interpretive services in Spanish, realized that the free park pass program could reach more people if translated , and saw children and adults from underrepresented communities paddling and cycling for the first time.

    “The most important thing is to have candid conversations with people, just try to listen to what their needs are and integrate them into different programs,” she said.

    Resource Sharing

    Amanda Lovelee, Parks Ambassador for the Met Council, which coordinates equity efforts, leads a monthly video call between 10 park systems in the metro area, including regional systems such as Dakota County, Anoka County and Ramsey County. The Met Council created its equity stake in 2018.

    “It’s great to work with so many different colleagues doing different and interesting work,” Lovelee said. “Our region is pushing this work and investing money in it, and these positions and funding are having an impact. Nationally, there is also a huge movement around this.

    While the group shares best practices and resources, it also recognizes that much of its work is unique to its region and clientele. Met Council research shows there is no silver bullet in equity work, Lovelee said.

    “It’s specific to specific communities,” Lovelee said. “You have to listen and try not to symbolize a certain person. A Hmong person in St. Paul may not have the same needs as a person in Washington County. It is therefore important that [each park system is] work with the community for what that community wants and needs.

    The Met Council conducted research in 2019 with 85 young participants aged 12-20, 43 parents and guardians and leaders of youth organizations. Researchers have found that highly trained staff can reduce barriers and make parks more welcoming and accessible.

    “Young people and adults bring previous experiences to parks and trails,” said Met Council researcher Vandegrift. “The highly trained staff were able to understand what those experiences were and make the visit to the park relevant to those experiences.

    “So they ask, ‘What experiences do people bring and how can they be connected?’ And naturally, culturally competent staff and staff with a variety of backgrounds who represent the people of the region are able to better connect those experiences.

    For example, a Ramsey County naturalist partnered with Asian Media Access to bring a college Hmong dance troupe to Battle Creek Regional Park. The naturalist asked the group to share his pre-workout ritual, which involved sharing something from their lives as they stretched together. He stretched out with them, talked a bit about his family, talked about his connection to the park by making baskets from birch bark, and then listened to the girls share their experiences.

    The experience was relevant, accessible and fun, Vandegrift said.

    Eliminate barriers

    The Met Council’s youth research results also sparked its grant-in-action programme, which is committed to removing barriers at the metropolitan parks it works with.

    For Futbol Fan MN Camp, removing barriers means not charging a participation fee, allowing registration on the day of the camp, simplifying registration and having the camp after working hours. Healthy snacks and water are also provided, and Spanish is spoken at camp.

    “Our original idea is for children to be proud of who they are, to give them the opportunity to learn and practice the sport without worrying about anything,” Rosso said. “Life can be full of obligations as an adult and as a child you have a bit more freedom.”

    But Rosso also discovered unexpected benefits. The non-native Spanish speakers who attend his camp want to learn the language. Parents eventually talk to each other and form a community. Kids learn park etiquette, like recycling their water bottles.

    An end of summer party is planned for the Rosso camp, with food from different cultures. The place? One of Bloomington’s state parks, where they hope everyone will feel welcome.

    As Modi prepares to speak to China and Russia virtually, realism reigns

    0


    Prhyme Minister Narendra Modi will participate this week in the BRICS summit hosted virtually by China. This means he will share screen time with Chinese President Xi Jinping, Russian Vladimir Putin, Brazilian Jair Bolsonaro and South African Cyril Ramaphosa. But the failure of an in-person summit is certainly a lost opportunity for a group that claims to amplify the dreams of the developing world.

    If only China had withdrawn to its side of the Line of Effective Control in eastern Ladakh, where it has held territory for two years, Modi might even have taken that flight to Beijing. Reports say China was very keen for Modi to attend the BRICS summit – clearly it wasn’t lively enough, otherwise things at LAC would have been different.

    There was much speculation in Delhi and Beijing that a breakthrough might be in sight; just like in 2017, when China hosted the BRICS meeting in Xiamen and Modi refused to go because Indian and Chinese troops were eye to eye in Doklam, Bhutan. But a compromise was reached after long negotiations and the Prime Minister took this flight in time.

    This time around, it’s a much more uncertain world. The pandemic has eased, but it’s not over, including in mainland China. The invasion of Ukraine by Russia is still relevant. Beijing’s occupation of Ladakh territory means that two of the five BRICS members are violating their own principles of sovereignty and territorial integrity.

    Minister of Foreign Affairs S Jaishankar told his fellow BRICS ministers as much in May, when he pointed out that “the BRICS have repeatedly affirmed respect for sovereign equality, territorial integrity and international law. We must live up to these commitments.

    And yet Modi is attending the virtual BRICS summit – 15 rounds of talks later, the Chinese have not hinted at a return to the status quo ante. So why did the prime minister, like national security adviser Ajit Doval, who took part in a BRICS NSA meeting on the second anniversary of the Galwan clashes in which 20 Indian soldiers died – still talking to China? The answer is more complicated.

    Realism is the engine of Indian politics

    The Modi government has decided that at least for now it will play by the classic definition of a ‘swing state’. This means that he will move in the direction of the country or grouping which most satisfies his national interest.

    It also means that India will step down from the moral high ground and hold its nose if need be, in order to pursue the goal it has set for itself. For example, India has shown incredible realism in refusing to criticize Putin on the Russian invasion of Ukraine, because it knows which way its oil barrel floats.

    Not criticizing Putin doesn’t mean India won’t play a strong role in the Quad or the G-20, whose PM Modi summit will be attending next week in Germany. Recall that he recently returned from Tokyo, where he participated in an in-person meeting of the Quad, alongside Joe Biden, Anthony Albanese (PM of Australia) and Fumio Kishida (PM of Japan).

    India’s firm commitment to realism is evidently underscored by the fact that its economy falls short; given this uncertain situation in his country, the fact that New Delhi is nevertheless determined to remain engaged with players with whom it is not particularly interested in breaking bread – namely China – signals a maturation, a maturity.

    Some say China’s territorial occupation of Ladakh is a sign of its dissatisfaction with India’s growing closeness to the United States. Besides being a terribly childish way to conduct diplomacy, it also signals China’s significant lack of understanding of another Asian power, another ancient civilization.

    Either way, it is unfortunate that Chinese intransigence in resolving the impasse in Ladakh is preventing Delhi from improving its ties with Beijing and other intermediate BRICS economies.

    India realizes that whatever the difficulties, it must play a role at the BRICS high table. To be inside the lakshman rekha has several advantages, including first-hand knowledge of how others operate.

    Moreover, the five BRICS countries together account for 40% of the world’s population, 24% of world GDP and 16% of world trade, no doubt heavily biased in favor of China. There is no reason for India to want to stay out.


    Also read: India and China have reached ‘agreement’ on Ladakh disengagement but no timetable, says Jaishankar


    Just the way the world works

    Xi Jinping is not only interested in promoting his version of a world order, called the Global Security Initiative, but also wants to expand the BRICS. At the end of May, the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs echoed Sergey Lavrov, Russian Foreign Minister say that Saudi Arabia and Argentina are deeply interested in joining the organization.

    This follows the meeting of BRICS foreign ministers in May, which was accompanied by a dialogue with emerging markets and developing countries called “BRICS Plus” initiative. Foreign ministers and senior officials from Kazakhstan, Saudi Arabia, Argentina, Egypt, Nigeria, Senegal, United Arab Emirates and Thailand all attended.

    Only in December 2021, Egypt has become the fourth member of BRICS Bank– also called the New Development Bank – named after the United Arab Emirates, Senegal and Bangladesh. So far, the Bank has disbursed $30 billion in 80 projects in its member countries.

    So what does India think of the BRICS expansion? Does she believe that Xi Jinping wants to expand his influence to compete with Quad? More importantly, should India care?

    For now, India is keeping its sights to itself. There is too much volatility, not only in global markets but also in diplomatic interests, and India does not want to be taken on the wrong foot. She therefore continues to refuse to criticize Vladimir Putin, despite an irritated West which begins to push india choose, although New Delhi has privately assured these Western governments that India remains on the side of the democracies.

    The Indian argument is this: its economy is struggling as it emerges from the pandemic coupled with the aftershocks of the war in Ukraine. He need not further destabilize the lives of his own people by refusing to buy cheap and discounted oil and other energy products from Russia.

    A Reuters report recently revealed that Indian importers are “lapping” Coal, oil and other Russian energy products that have been shunned by European countries following the sanctions. Additionally, Russian companies accept payment in Indian Rupees and UAE Dirhams.

    And so on, in India’s diplomatic circle. This week, Modi will meet BRICS leaders virtually, next week he will rub shoulders with leaders of Western economies. India is adapting its foreign policy to keep pace with the world.

    4 Ways International Freshmen Can Build an Active Social Life | Best Global Universities

    0

    International students studying in the United States have the opportunity to interact with people from all over the world and share different cultures and traditions. One way to get the most out of the American college experience is to have an active social life, which can also help students adjust better to their new home and ward off homesickness.

    “The social aspect of college is really important, because it’s hard to be successful if you can’t find people you identify with,” says Jennie Kent, an education consultant based in Bogotá, Colombia and Stonington. in Connecticut. “I encourage students to take some time before heading to college to reflect on who they are and identify their core values.”

    Once students arrive in the United States, here are some ways to develop a full and active social life, starting in your freshman year.

    Make friends with a wide variety of people

    While international freshmen may gravitate to their own communities, it’s important to branch out and meet a variety of students.

    “Universities provide hundreds of opportunities for students to engage and bond,” says Patricia DeBolt, dean of admissions at the University of Tulsa in Oklahoma.

    She recommends that students attend on-campus activities, including orientation or welcome events that apply to the student, such as sessions specifically for undergraduates, graduate students, and to international students. She also advises living on campus.

    “The Residential Life offices host a variety of programs throughout the year for students who live in residence halls. These are usually fun and often informative events that help students mingle and make new friends,” says DeBolt.

    Joining campus organizations can also be a good idea, she says, since most universities have a variety of groups ranging from cultural groups to academics to professionals.

    Mateo Pardo, from Colombia, who is studying finance and computer science at New York University in New York, says he met a lot of people in his freshman year, which helped him develop his friendships the closest.

    “The best way to have an active social life is to be open, especially at first,” says Pardo. “To do that, you need to be open to new people and experiences.”

    Don’t be embarrassed to be different

    The United States is a nation of nations, so international freshmen should accept and share their differences.

    “It’s great to be yourself. During your college career in the United States, international students will find plenty of opportunities to share their cultures,” says DeBolt.

    These opportunities can come in the dining hall or the student union during a casual conversation, in a classroom with a professor, or at an event with other students, she says.

    “Many members of the university community consider cultural differences to be one of the best parts of a diverse global college or university and would like to hear your perspectives,” says Lisa D. Swaim, Director of Programming world at the University of California, Santa Cruz.

    For example, Swaim says the school encourages cross-cultural conversation with events called “Story Circles,” where students can learn about each other’s experiences and traditions.

    “International students must absolutely share their culture. One of the reasons universities want international students to be part of their communities is to make them more vibrant,” says Kent. “Embrace what’s special about you and share it.”

    Speak slowly, ask people to repeat

    Attending an American university is the perfect time to practice your English skills with other students.

    International students should “accept and acknowledge” that they may have difficulty communicating in English, wrote Sushil Sukhwani, director of India-based education consultancy Edwise International, via email. “Only then will they be comfortable asking others to speak slowly or repeat statements.”

    DeBolt says learning a language takes practice, and most students, faculty, and staff are kind and patient with international students who aren’t fluent in English. She says students can also contact their school’s international student office to find out if there are special study sessions for non-English speakers to practice their English skills.

    “I think it’s very important to practice English in general,” says Anita Videla Solá from Argentina, a journalism student at Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts. “Watching movies and listening to songs in English is great practice.”

    Do not stay in constant contact with your home

    Nothing beats home, but international freshmen should also focus on their new home, experts say.

    “It’s important to engage with campus life and not get caught up in what you miss at home,” Kent says. “College is a time to build self-confidence so students can successfully navigate adult life.”

    Swaim says it’s good to be in touch a few times a week, but students need time to explore and connect in their new community and being in touch too often can set a student back on track.

    “I would recommend setting times to connect with your loved ones back home, but also pushing yourself to form new relationships,” Swaim says.

    Staying in touch with loved ones back home is extremely important to Solá.

    “On the other hand, staying focused in school and just enjoying the experience is also key to a great college experience,” says Solá. “I think it’s essential to find the right balance for each person.”

    What you need to know about lithium and which ASX stocks are profiting from it

    0

    Image source: Getty Images

    Several dozen ASX stocks are looking for lithium. A handful more are in the pre-production phase.

    But only three ASX stocks are currently producing the metal.

    We take a look at those below.

    But first…

    What is lithium?

    Lithium is a light and malleable alkali metal, silver in color.

    Historically, it has been used to increase the heat resistance of glass and ceramics. Lithium salts are also used as antidepressants.

    But it’s lithium’s high level of thermal and electrical conductivity that has seen demand soar alongside the rapidly growing market for lithium-ion batteries. Batteries that power most electric vehicles (EVs) on the road.

    Lithium’s crucial role in the transition to renewable energy has seen the Australian government classify the metal as a critical mineral.

    The metal is mainly mined from ore and brines, with Australia, Chile, China and Argentina having the largest deposits.

    The government reports that Australia has high geological potential for lithium, with a demonstrated economic resource in 2020 of 6.17 million tonnes. In 2020, Australia produced 40,000 tons of lithium out of a total world production of 82,000 tons.

    So what are the three ASX stocks that produce lithium?

    Three ASX stocks cash in on lithium

    Taking them in alphabetical order, we start with Allkem AG (ASX: AKE), formerly known as Orocobre.

    Allkem has a market capitalization of just under $6.6 billion. Based in Brisbane, its projects are mainly in Argentina. The company supplies lithium carbonate to a variety of industrial and technical sectors, supplying approximately 10% of the global lithium market.

    Allkem claims to be one of the cheapest lithium producers in the world. The company intends to increase production to three times its current levels by 2026.

    Allkem’s share price has risen 72% over the past 12 months.

    The second ASX stock already producing lithium is Limited mineral resources (ASX: MIN), with a market capitalization of $10.1 billion.

    While you might think of Mineral Resources as a mining services company, which it is, the company also has a large footprint in the lithium space. Its operations in Western Australia are Mt Marion, located in the Goldfields; and Wodgina, in the Pilbara region.

    The Company mines and produces both drop-ship lithium ore and spodumene concentrate.

    Mineral Resources’ share price is up 8% since the same period last year.

    Moving on to our third ASX share in the lithium production phase, we have Pilbara Minerals Ltd (ASX:PLS), which has a market capitalization of $6.3 billion.

    Pilbara’s flagship Pilgangoora Lithium-Tantalum project is also located in the Pilbara region of WA.

    The Pilgangoora project is one of the largest hard rock lithium-tantalum deposits in the world. Pilbara Minerals has big expansion plans for the project. It expects spodumene concentrate capacity at Pilgangoora to increase to 560,000 to 580,000 dry metric tons (dmt) this year.

    The Pilbara share price is up 57% over the past 12 months.

    A credit check can sometimes be applied to some payday loans as well. A credit check is generally not required for many payday loans, but may be requested if the loan is over $10,000. Some lenders require applicants to have a driving record. However, others do not.

    Iranian aboard jet stranded in Argentina is captain of Al-Quds Force, Paraguay says

    0

    One of the men aboard a plane grounded near Buenos Aires is a member of Iran’s Quds Force, the Paraguayan intelligence chief said on Friday, despite claims by Argentina that no evidence links the case with the elite branch of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

    Intelligence chief Esteban Aquino told AFP that Captain Gholamreza Ghasemi not only shared the name of a member of the Force – an expeditionary arm of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards which carries out kidnappings and assassinations in outside of Iran – but it’s actually the same man.

    Argentine Security Minister Anibal Fernandez responded on Friday that while the Paraguayan official “has the right to say whatever he wants…I’m not going to talk about conjecture.”

    “We follow due process. And according to official documentation, there is no specific relationship with terrorist organizations, according to all databases,” Fernandez told AM750 radio.

    The Boeing 747 cargo plane, believed to be carrying auto parts loaded in Mexico, has been held at an Argentinian airport since Wednesday last week, its 14 Venezuelan and five Iranian crew members barred from leaving the country pending investigations.

    Argentinian authorities have seized the passports of crew members of the plane, which is operated by Venezuelan state-owned Emtrasur, a subsidiary of Conviasa, which is subject to US sanctions.

    Iran said the plane was sold by Iranian Mahan Air to a Venezuelan company last year. Mahan Air is accused by the United States of links with the Revolutionary Guards.

    On Monday, Argentinian officials raised suspicions of a link between the theft and Iran’s Revolutionary Guards and their elite Al-Quds force.

    Law enforcement officers searched the hotel where the crew members were staying on Tuesday under the orders of Federal Judge Federico Villena, who is investigating the crew. Argentinian authorities say they found no irregularities in the crew.

    On Wednesday, Israel’s Channel 13 said in an unsourced report that the detained Iranians were planning to carry out attacks on Israeli and Jewish targets in Argentina and had traveled to the South American nation to scout for targets. The report says they were members of the Quds Force.

    Iran has vowed to avenge the killing of an Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps officer last month, accusing Israel of responsibility for the assassination.

    In recent days, Jerusalem has called on citizens to leave Turkey immediately, saying it has heard intelligence indicating Iranian attempts to attack and abduct Israeli tourists there.

    The Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires said Thursday it was “concerned” about the Latin American activities of two Iranian airlines and welcomed Argentina’s grounding of the plane.

    “The State of Israel is particularly concerned about the activities of Iranian airlines Mahan Air and Qeshm Fars Air in Latin America,” the embassy said in a statement.

    He added that the companies were “engaged in arms trafficking and the transfer of people and equipment operating for the Quds Force, under United States sanctions for their involvement in terrorist activities”.

    The statement from the Israeli Embassy expressed “recognition of the rapid, efficient and firm action of the Argentine security forces who identified in real time the potential threat” posed by the plane.

    The top US diplomat in Argentina also commented on the case.

    “We follow with great interest the judicial and police investigations into the crew and the plane and thank the investigative efforts of the Argentine authorities to clarify the situation,” said US Ambassador Marc Stanley in a statement shared with the media. local.

    Widening the international reverberations in the case, Venezuela harshly criticized Uruguay on Thursday evening for not allowing the plane to land in Montevideo to refuel.

    Uruguayan Interior Minister Luis Alberto Heber said the country had responded to a “formal warning from the Paraguayan intelligence services”.

    The plane’s crew sought to fly to Montevideo on June 8 but had to return to Buenos Aires after Uruguayan authorities refused entry into its airspace, according to a report from Argentina’s transport ministry. It was then that the plane was immobilized by the Argentine authorities.

    Uruguay’s “regrettable action” could have “caused tragedy, human lives and damage to both nations,” Venezuela said in a statement, adding that it “demands an explanation of this terrible event from the part of the Uruguayan government”.

    Neville and Higuaín look to the future of football in South Florida

    0

    “I think the break came at the right time, we really needed it. The boys can’t wait to get back to playing. We did some very good things before the break; we showed very good qualities, performed very well, but now I feel like this is where the marathon begins. There’s a big stretch now where we really need to get some points and move up that board. Now is the time to focus, stay focused, stay together,” Neville said.

    Neville also thought the opportunity to face Atlanta again was one to be savored.

    “It’s a good game of football. They have exceptional players and they have invested a lot in their line-up. These matches always produce moments, and the match at DRV PNK Stadium this season was fantastic. They probably felt [that they were] bad luck, but it was the start of a race on our part and we want to continue this race.

    Inter Miami striker Gonzalo Higuaín also appeared and was eager to return to MLS against Atlanta.

    “I think the break really helps to rest, train and adjust to whatever we need to improve and maintain the good things we’ve done so far. The month ahead is It’s going to be very competitive. We’re going to have to be mentally fresh and have energy in our legs because we have a lot of matches this month.

    “You think of the greatest thing in the world, and that’s the FIFA World Cup, and it’s coming to South Florida,” head coach Neville said. “We had Roberto Carlos here yesterday, and Ronaldinho is probably one of the greatest players of all time, and they play at our stadium. South Florida attracts the best players in the world and that makes you very proud of that. Proud moment for this region, and football fans here really have something to look forward to over the next three, four years.

    Higuaín, who has featured prominently for the Argentina national team in previous World Cups, explained the prestige that comes with playing in the tournament.

    “The best thing that can happen to a player is to play in the World Cup. Very few play there. Playing in the World Cup is a dream and it’s the best experience for a player. It’s a great opportunity for fans and to bring many people to Miami to see the World Cup.

    Inter Miami CF owner-manager Jorge Mas also shared his enthusiasm for the city of Miami and its loyal football fans, commenting, “Miami football fans, you made it. Your passion and love for the game has made Miami a host city for the 2026 FIFA World Cup. The Club is also delighted to have the opportunity to be a home base for a national team and their afford training at our facilities during the 2026 FIFA World Cup – welcome the world to our beautiful Miami.

    Biden says major economies must accelerate efforts to fight climate change and improve energy security

    0

    WASHINGTON, June 17 (Reuters) – U.S. President Joe Biden on Friday called on China and other major economies to step up efforts to tackle climate change and improve energy security, warning that the invasion of Ukraine by Russia had reinforced the need for urgent action.

    At the third Major Economies Forum (MEF) virtual gathering under his presidency, Biden urged countries to accelerate action to cut methane emissions, adopt ambitious targets for zero-emission vehicles and work to clean up the global shipping.

    He also called on countries to spend $90 billion to accelerate the commercialization of clean technologies and to develop new fertilizers that reduce agricultural emissions and boost food security.

    “Russia’s brutal and unprovoked assault on the Ukrainian state has fueled a global energy crisis and reinforced the need to achieve reliable long-term energy security and stability,” Biden told leaders at the forum. virtual.

    Biden said working together was key to mitigating the fallout from the war, which has driven up global food and energy prices.

    Friday’s meeting is the largest gathering of world leaders on climate change ahead of the global climate conference known as COP27, to be held in November in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt.

    The White House said Biden and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi would announce at the conference a joint effort to build climate resilience in Africa.

    The countries that make up the MEF account for approximately 80% of global economic output and global greenhouse gas emissions.

    Several countries were expected to join Biden’s initiatives, while other countries would announce new emissions targets for 2030, the White House said, but did not name them.

    ‘VERY BRIGHT LIGHT’

    Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and efforts by Western nations to isolate Moscow with sanctions have sent energy prices soaring and exposed Europe’s huge dependence on Russia for about 40% of the natural gas used to heat its homes and generate electricity.

    The crisis has underscored the importance of decarbonizing transportation, rethinking fertilizers and improving energy security, a senior US official said, adding that it had shed a “very bright light on where the solutions lie and what what it takes to get there.”

    Biden said the United States would join major gas producers and consumers in launching a “global methane energy pathway” that would provide new technical and financial resources to mitigate methane in the oil and gas sector, while striving to eliminate routine gas flaring by 2030.

    Washington planned to spend $21.5 billion on large-scale demonstration projects to achieve net-zero emissions and would urge other countries to contribute to reach the total $90 billion in estimated investment needs, the official said. one of the managers.

    Biden, who signed an executive order last year mandating that half of all light-duty vehicles sold in the United States be zero emissions by 2030, urged other countries to follow suit.

    The United States and Norway would also launch a Green Shipping Challenge for COP27 to encourage governments, ports and cargo owners to come up with concrete steps toward full decarbonization no later than 2050, officials said. White House officials.

    Finally, Biden noted the impact of the war in Ukraine on the global food system and set a goal to raise $100 million in new funds for alternative fertilizer development in time for COP27.

    Also attending the forum will be leaders from Argentina, Australia, Chile, Canada, European Union, Germany, Indonesia, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Norway, Nigeria , South Korea, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Great Britain, Vietnam and France. , the White House said.

    Alberta Mining Resistance to Argentina – YubaNet

    0

    At the end of last year, at the height of the spread of the Omicron variant, an important battle was being waged for clean water and a healthy environment, the value of which has only become clearer in the last two years.

    At one of the many frontiers of mining in Argentina’s Patagonian province of Chubut, indigenous Mapuche-Tehuelche communities and citizen groups flooded the streets for days just before Christmas 2021.

    A US-Canadian mining company, Pan American Silver, had been lobbying lawmakers to reverse a nearly 20-year ban on surface metal mining and the use of cyanide in mineral processing, which threatens precious water supplies. When lawmakers forced and zoned for mining where the company wants to operate on the plateau of the province, people took to the streets in their thousands and faced a violent police crackdown.

    But the people prevailed and succeeded in a few days in having the zoning law repealed.

    This is just one example of the important frontline struggles that have fought to continue to organize during the pandemic despite the difficult conditions. This story and others are collected in a new report: No reprieve for life and territory: COVID-19 and resistance to the mining pandemic.

    No reprieve examines how governments and mining companies have taken advantage of social constraints during the COVID-19 pandemic to increase their profits and declare mining “essential” for economic recovery and energy transition.

    This report focuses on case studies in nine Latin American countries: Mexico, Honduras, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Brazil, Chile and Argentina. It was developed by the Coalition Against the Mining Pandemic-Latin America, part of a global network of environmental justice groups.

    In nearly every case studied, indigenous peoples and other mining-affected communities have faced increased repression, criminalization, targeted violence and militarization in response to their efforts to protect water and land. long-term impacts of mining.

    A global trend of repression by mining companies

    In the United States, we know the criminalization and repression of movements for environmental justice, racial justice and indigenous rights at the behest of the extractive industries.

    Indigenous peoples fighting to defend and protect their lands have faced severe repression and legal persecution in the United States, including during the Enbridge Line 3, Line 5 and Standing Rock protests. The intense policing and militarization of movements has been accelerated by so-called “critical infrastructure laws”, enforced by state governments. These laws confuse peaceful protest with acts of domestic terrorism and have been a key tool pushed by the fossil fuel industry to expand oil and gas pipeline projects.

    This echoes a global trend.

    For years, international organizations have documented industry pressure to contain resistance through repression and violence. “Activists in the North face increased criminalization,” Adrien Salazar of the Grassroots Global Justice Alliance told CNN last year. Meanwhile, “environmental defenders in the Global South face a growing risk of death.”

    In 2021 alone, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights found that 147 human rights activists had been murdered. In the first four months of 2022, another 89 people had already been murdered.

    The majority of activists killed were land defenders, environmental activists or members of indigenous communities. According to the Human Rights and Civil Liberties Defenders Programme, 36% of attacks against human rights defenders documented by the center relate to the extractive sector.

    This type of repression ultimately costs people their health, lives and well-being. At the same time, it undermines democratic systems and endangers our environment.

    Mining companies peddle bogus solutions

    During the pandemic, extractive industries have criminalized and threatened defenders or advocated for more repression by portraying themselves as important to economic recovery.

    Despite the threats metal mining poses to land and water, No reprieve documents how this industry has repositioned itself as “essential” while benefiting from rising market prices for gold, silver and copper, leading some mining companies to make record profits.

    Beyond Argentina, this trend has been evident elsewhere in Latin America through policy changes that have made it easier to obtain mining permits, eased environmental oversight and offered tax breaks. Some countries, such as Panama and Ecuador, have decreed special plans to make mining a central axis of economic recovery.

    Unlike the United States, where repression often primarily benefits the fossil fuel industries, Latin America has seen a rise in violent extractivism by companies arguing that the minerals they mine are necessary for the renewable energy technology.

    Globally, the installation of renewable energy infrastructure and the manufacture of electric vehicles are expected to increase demand for certain minerals and metals, such as lithium, cobalt and nickel. This has led to initiatives in countries like Peru and Mexico making lithium mining a strategic priority for the state.

    These challenges underscore the need for a just transition to renewable energy that does not repeat the same abuses of the extractive industry. Regardless of the ore or metal, frontline and indigenous communities still bear the brunt of the harms of mining that are rarely addressed and have met with widespread resistance.

    State favoritism towards the mining industry during the pandemic even led to the perception that this was a crisis suited to the mining industry.

    Iván Paillalaf, a member of the Mapuche-Tehuelche community of Laguna Fría Chacay Oeste in Chubut, believes that “the crisis that currently exists in Chubut… is an intentional crisis; a crisis that was created precisely to try to impose this activity so that people see no other way out than mining.

    This does not mean that communities have viewed the pandemic itself as a conspiracy, but rather that they have seen how corporations and governments are taking advantage of the social and economic constraints it has created. This reaffirmed for them the urgency to continue to defend their communities and territories in these difficult conditions.

    Heroic resistance across the hemisphere

    Even with these obstacles, these Latin American communities offer an inspiring example of resilience against difficult odds. Resistance remains strong in Chubut and throughout the hemisphere.

    Despite lockdown orders that have hampered organizing efforts, a grassroots initiative to expand the ban on surface mining in Chubut to include exploration and prospecting activities has garnered twice the required signatures by law to be considered. This initiative was rejected without debate in 2021 before the legislator tried to reverse the existing ban. But the movement in Argentina is stepping up its efforts this year, aiming to collect 100,000 signatures.

    In the North as in the South, repression and violence are exercised against those who oppose the extractive industries. This is part of the extractive capitalist model that allows private corporate interests to dominate human rights, self-determination and democracy.

    The cases detailed in No reprieve demonstrate the need to consider a future beyond the extractivist economy. In times of a pandemic and in the face of a climate crisis, the fight to defend our territories and collective health is more essential than ever.

    2 growth stocks to buy and hold during any market downturn

    0

    Growth stocks have borne the brunt of the market downturn in recent months. Given a performance that saw most of their values ​​wiped out, many investors may understandably want to stay away from these stocks.

    However, upon closer examination, the long-term growth stories of some of these companies remain intact, indicating that some stocks may be making a comeback. And since they’re selling at huge discounts, that probably means they’re buying, above all in the current environment. Internet retail and direct marketing stocks, such as MercadoLibre (MELI -7.38%) and Shopify (STORE -6.12%)could become two such comeback stories.

    MercadoLibre

    MercadoLibre started as a marketplace where Latin American businesses could sell goods online. Moreover, like its e-commerce counterpart Amazonit leveraged this venture to drive further growth from related businesses.

    Since Latin America is a predominantly cash-based and heavily unbanked society, it has pioneered fintech solutions through Mercado Pago to enable payments. It has further expanded its ecosystem by offering these solutions to other companies. Additionally, e-commerce presents logistical challenges, which is why he launched Mercado Envios, which can store, package, and ship goods for his customers.

    This e-commerce ecosystem has anchored MercadoLibre in Latin America. It provides a competitive advantage even when competitors such as Sea Limited and Amazon have entered parts of this market. Investors should also note that it is thriving amid the challenges of inflation. Brazil, which accounted for around 56% of its sales in the first quarter of 2022, is now facing double-digit annual inflation, while MercadoLibre’s home country Argentina is facing inflation that has exceeded 50% in recent years.

    However, this price hike has not slowed the company down. Revenue for the first quarter of 2022 jumped 67% to $2.2 billion from year-ago levels. This led to quarterly revenue of $65 million, compared to a loss of $34 million 12 months prior. And even if it can’t sustain those levels of growth, analysts estimate that MercadoLibre can achieve 47% revenue growth for this year.

    The drop in growth stocks hit MercadoLibre as it fell more than two-thirds from its 52-week high. Still, that brings its price-to-sales (P/S) ratio down to four.

    This may not match Amazon’s P/S ratio, which has dropped to around two. However, MercadoLibre’s sales multiple has not been so cheap since the Great Recession. Given the company’s potential to change the nature of e-commerce, fintech and shipping in Latin America, MercadoLibre could present a unique opportunity for investors, businesses and consumers in its home region.

    Shopify

    Shopify is a platform that allows businesses to launch their own e-commerce businesses. Of course, many companies, such as Wix and square spacecompete in this area, at least on the software side.

    However, Shopify has stood out by offering robust tools and an ecosystem that transcends the software business. Shopify Payments can accept money without third-party payment providers. Additionally, its POS system allows inventory management, including unsold inventory through a Shopify site. Additionally, Shopify has built a fulfillment network that can store, package, and ship a business’s goods.

    According to BuiltWith, Shopify has achieved a 31% market share among e-commerce platform providers in the United States. This growth allowed it to build a market cap of $39 billion, surpassing that of the e-commerce pioneer. eBaywhich supports a market capitalization of $24 billion.

    Shopify also continues to grow, with first-quarter revenue of $1.2 billion. This was 22% higher than levels a year ago. Granted, that’s a slowdown from 2021, when revenue grew 57% year-over-year. Additionally, with operating expenses up 67% in the first quarter, the company lost $1.5 billion versus a profit of $1.2 billion in the first quarter of 2021.

    However, Shopify has invested heavily in growing its business and has struggled with lower margins in some of its segments. Additionally, analysts expect 2022 revenue to recover somewhat, reaching around 27%.

    Additionally, as Shopify stock fell more than 80% from its 52-week high, its P/S ratio fell to around eight. While still higher than Wix or Squarespace, both of which trade at less than three times sales, Shopify’s sales multiple is at its lowest level in more than six years. Such a valuation, along with rising revenue and business investment, could make Shopify one of the most compelling buys in e-commerce.

    Argentina midfielder Leandro Paredes has picked Brazil, France, England and Spain as his four favorites for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar later this year. The Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) midfielder also expects Germany to be a force to be reckoned with at this year’s tournament.

    The 27-year-old midfielder can’t wait to take on some of the best teams in the world at the World Cup. Speaking in an interview with Filo News (via Mundo Albiceleste), Paredes said:

    “For me, there are very good national teams. I think France are favourites. Brazil, England, Spain are playing very well. Germany, as always, is fighting to be there at the top. I like to play with the best. It will surely be very difficult, but to be champion of something as important as the World Cup, you must surely win against everyone.”

    Leandro Paredes: “We lived to see Leo (Messi) champion, which for us was a great price to be champion with the national team. I think Leo suffered a lot losing finals and helping him to become champion, for us it’s a prize.” This through @filonewsOK. 🇦🇷 https://t.co/ZVvHDyKDyl

    The 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar could be a hotly contested affair between the aforementioned teams. France will enter the tournament as defending champions, looking to become the first team since Brazil in 1962 to retain the title.

    Argentina, meanwhile, will travel to Qatar in great form. The two-time world champions won the Copa America last summer and beat Italy in the 2022 Finalissima earlier this month. The Albiceleste is currently on a series of 33 games without defeat.

    Their arch-rivals Brazil also have a great squad capable of fighting in the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The Selecao have Neymar, Marquinhos and Fabinho in their ranks.


    Argentina have a tough squad to navigate at the 2022 FIFA World Cup

    Argentina do not have a single group at the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Lionel Messi and Co. have been drawn alongside Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Poland.

    The two-time world champions will face one of modern football’s deadliest strikers, Poland’s Robert Lewandowski. They will also face a Mexican side who have made the round of 16 in their last seven World Cup appearances.

    Argentina begin their FIFA World Cup campaign against Saudi Arabia on November 22 in Lusail in what could be Messi’s final appearance at the quadrennial tournament.

    WTO extends ministerial meeting in desperate search for consensus

    0
    The World Trade Organization has extended its ministerial meeting in Geneva for another day until Thursday to try to build consensus on the key issues of fisheries subsidies, food security and measures to fight the pandemic. of Covid.

    The four-day ministerial meeting was due to conclude on Wednesday, but Director General Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala late Tuesday night decided to extend the talks for a day to reach an agreement.

    The WTO makes its decisions by consensus among its members. “Progress is being made but it takes a bit more work and more time,” the chief executive said. This is the first WTO ministerial meeting in five years.

    On the issue of fisheries subsidies, India is sticking to its initial demand for a 25-year transition, which many countries are not ready to accept, and has rejected the draft agreement.

    “The 25-year transition period requested by India is not intended as a permanent exclusion. It is a must for us and for other non-remote water fishing nations in the same situation,” said Trade and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal in a statement. statement.

    India argued that its fishing subsidy of $15 per family per year was not even comparable to what some developed countries distribute, for example, $42,000 by the Netherlands, $65,000 by Sweden and $75,000 from Denmark.

    Concessions below expectations

    Furthermore, the proposed pact on fisheries only extended concessions up to 24 nautical miles from the shore, compared to 12 miles as incorporated in the original draft text. The concession falls well short of what India had asked for – unlimited fishing in the exclusive economic zone, that is, up to 200 nautical miles from the coast.

    India has also locked horns with some developed countries – Switzerland and the UK in particular – on waiving aspects of trade-related intellectual property rights (TRIPS) and the WTO’s response to future pandemics.

    Goyal officially accused the developed world of nitpicking. “My personal feeling is that no (vaccine manufacturing) factory will ever reach the deal that we are finally trying to negotiate,” he said.

    In his formal interaction, however, Minister Goyal did not name Switzerland or the UK – the two countries that were advocating for their private pharmaceutical companies.

    On public stockholding for food security, India asked the WTO why it prevented its members from making government-to-government purchases for humanitarian purposes. Here too, a group of nations with a strong agricultural base, for example Argentina, Brazil, Australia and New Zealand, have not lost ground.

    As the nation celebrates 40 years since the end of the Falklands War, the chairman of Kent County Council paid tribute to Kent military personnel who fought in the brief but bitter conflict.

    Chair of Kent County Council, Lesley Game

    Ceremonies are being held across the country throughout this week to remember the events of four decades ago that culminated in the surrender of Argentine forces to British troops as they recaptured overseas territory in the South Atlantic.

    Portsmouth and Southampton, where quickly summoned Task Force ships were sent to reclaim the islands, were among those commemorating the 40th anniversary of the end of hostilities on Tuesday June 21, including with church services and a helicopter flyby RAF Odiham Chinooks.

    Veterans also gathered at Invicta Barracks in Maidstone to honor those who died during the campaign.

    On Monday June 20, Lesley Game will also remember Falkland veterans at a flag-raising ceremony at County Hall to mark the start of Armed Forces Week 2022.

    Supported by KCC Armed Forces Champion Oliver Richardson, Advisor Game will also host a Reserves Day reception next Tuesday (June 21) at Invicta House in Maidstone. Kent Reservists and Veterans are welcome to come in uniform.

    Former Welsh Guardsman Mr Richardson served from 1982 to 1993, including in the Falklands, as well as in Northern Ireland and the Gulf War.

    Kent County Council chairwoman Lesley Game, who is also chairwoman of the Kent & Medway Civilian-Military Partnership Board, said: “The Falklands conflict claimed many hundreds of lives and left many of our brave servicemen with wounds, both physical and mental, which they continue to endure to this day.

    “Today we remember their enormous personal sacrifice and that of their loved ones. I also recognize the heavy toll that war can have on all aspects of life and I am keenly aware that too often the scars of conflict soldiers are not visible.

    “As a strong supporter of mental health awareness, I urge all serving personnel, veterans and their families in need of assistance to contact one of the various support networks in Kent.”

    Argentina invaded the Falkland Islands on April 2, 1982, claiming it had inherited the islands from Spain in the 1800s and wanted to regain sovereignty over them after 150 years of British rule.

    The resulting conflict lasted only 74 days, but 655 Argentine and 255 British servicemen lost their lives, as did three Falkland Islanders.

    Argentina international rejects Manchester United and Arsenal as he decides his future: Reports

    0

    Manchester United and Arsenal are both active players in the transfer market this year and intend to revamp their squads. Both clubs have expressed interest in signing Paulo Dybala in a bid to strengthen their squads.

    According to a report published by Italian newspaper Gazetta dello Sport, the two Premier League giants are set to lose the race to sign the Argentine striker. Inter Milan are believed to be the favorites to secure Dybala’s signature and are at an advanced stage of their negotiations.

    Paulo Dybala is getting closer to joining Inter for four years. The talks are in the final phase. Inter want 3 years, Dybala want 5 years and they are halfway there. This through @CLMerlo. https://t.co/fiZKoLA9Na

    Paulo Dybala’s contract at Juventus is due to expire this month and the Bianconeri are ready to let him go on a free transfer. Dybala played a talismanic role for Juventus in his early years under Massimiliano Allegri but has since seen his form dwindle in Serie A.

    The Argentine star, however, still has several years ahead of him in the top flight and Inter Milan could use his talents. The Nerazzurri conceded the Serie A title to rivals AC Milan this year and are also looking to improve their squad ahead of another title charge.

    Paulo Dybala is said to be in “total agreement” with Inter Milan and is just days away from joining the club. According to Italian media, his mother played a key role in the decision and managed to convince him to stay in Serie A.

    Dybala is reportedly set to join Inter Milan on a four-year deal and could earn £6million a season at the club. As the Argentina international strikes a deal with the Nerazzurri, Arsenal and Manchester United will have to assess their other options in the transfer market.

    Paulo Dybala’s agents and Inter will meet again next week in order to reach a full agreement on freedom of movement. Salary offered worth almost 6 million euros net per season plus supplements. 🇦🇷 #InterInter will also meet Raoul Bellanova’s agents tomorrow to seal the deal with Cagliari.

    Manchester United appointed Erik ten Hag as manager this year and are in desperate need of reinforcements after a poor season. The Red Devils finished sixth in the Premier League table and have a lot of work ahead of them in the transfer market.

    Arsenal have a head start in their transition phase but have yet to qualify for the UEFA Champions League under Mikel Arteta. The Gunners built a team for the future but flattered themselves they cheated too often for their own taste.

    With Inter Milan offering Paulo Dybala access to Europe’s elite competition, a move to one of the two Premier League giants is unlikely to be a priority for him. Dybala is also expected to earn a hefty salary with the Nerazzurri and his wages could deter Manchester United and Arsenal from pursuing his signing.

    Palm oil imports: India’s palm oil imports fall 10% in May as Indonesia curbs exports

    0
    India’s palm oil imports in May fell 10% from a month ago as Indonesia’s top producer cut edible oil exports, a trade body said on Tuesday.

    The South Asian country is the world’s largest importer of vegetable oils and lower buying could weigh on Malaysian palm oil futures prices.

    India imported 514,022 tonnes of palm oil in May, compared to 572,508 tonnes in April, according to India’s Solvent Extractors’ Association (SEA).

    Indonesia, the world’s largest producer and exporter of palm oil, suspended exports of this product on April 28 to control soaring prices on its territory. Jakarta has allowed exports to resume from May 23, but has policies in place to protect domestic supplies.

    In May, Indian refiners bought more palm oil from Malaysia, Thailand and Papua New Guinea, but overall imports were still down, the SEA said.

    “In June, palm oil imports could exceed 600,000 tonnes as Indonesia has started granting export permits,” said a Mumbai-based dealer with a global trading company.

    Indonesia’s export allocation for palm oil products has been increased to 2.25 million tonnes, a senior Commerce Ministry official said on Monday, from around 1 million.

    India’s soybean oil imports in May jumped 37% from a month ago to 373,043 tonnes, while sunflower oil imports more than doubled to 118,482 tonnes , the trade body said.

    India buys soybean oil mainly from Argentina and Brazil and sunflower oil from Ukraine and Russia.

    The country’s soybean oil imports could rise sharply in coming months, with New Delhi allowing 2 million tonnes of the product to be imported duty-free, traders said.

    Amid unrest in GBAO region, Tajik authorities report murder of two ‘criminal bosses’

    0

    Shelling by Russian forces sparked a massive fire at a chemical plant in the besieged eastern Ukrainian city of Syevyerodonetsk, the local governor said, as Ukrainian leaders continued to call for more weapons to fight the assault of the invading forces throughout the region.

    Speaking on national television on June 11, Luhansk regional governor Serhiy Hayday did not say whether the fire at the Azot chemical plant had already been extinguished, but said fighting continued. rage in the city, where Ukrainian forces were trying to push back Russian troops. lead a major offensive against the city.

    Live briefing: Russia’s invasion of Ukraine

    RFE/RL Live briefing gives you all the major developments on the invasion of Russia, how Kyiv is fighting back, the plight of civilians and the Western reaction. For all of RFE/RL’s coverage of the war, click here.

    Hayday said Russian forces controlled about 90% of the strategic city, but Ukrainian troops were resisting the chemical plant.

    Moscow-backed separatist fighters earlier said they had surrounded the site and the defenders were trapped.

    “A small group of Ukrainian formations on the territory of the Azot chemical plant can no longer leave the plant. All escape routes are cut off for them,” wrote Rodion Miroshnik, a separatist official from the Lugansk region. , on Telegram. He acknowledged that civilians might also hold out in the factory.

    The claims could not be independently confirmed.

    The siege was reminiscent of what happened in the port city of Mariupol, where residents and fighters hid in and under the Azovstal steelworks before being surrounded and eventually surrendering to Russian forces after fighting brutal.

    Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, meanwhile, renewed his call for Western countries to step up arms deliveries as Russian forces pounded much of the country’s east.

    Ukrainian troops “are doing everything to stop the offensive, as much as they can, as long as there are enough heavy weapons, modern artillery – everything we asked and continue to ask our partners” , Zelenskiy said in his nightly video address on June 10.

    Zelenskiy said “very difficult battles” were underway, including in the eastern Donbass region, where Moscow has concentrated its firepower.

    Zelenskiy said that Russia wants to destroy all cities in Donbass.

    “Each city is not an exaggeration. Like Volnovakha, like Mariupol. All these ruins of once happy cities, the black traces of fires, the craters of explosions – that’s all Russia can give to its neighbors , to Europe, to the world.”

    The fiercest fighting is taking place around Syevyerodonetsk, a small industrial town that has become the center of Russia’s advance into eastern Ukraine.

    The British Ministry of Defense said in its June 11 daily intelligence bulletin that the Russians had not advanced south of the city.

    “Intense street-to-street fighting is ongoing and both sides are likely to suffer a large number of casualties,” the ministry said in an intelligence update posted on Twitter.

    The update says Russian bombers likely launched heavy anti-ship missiles dating back to the 1960s intended to destroy nuclear warhead aircraft carriers against ground targets in Ukraine. He added that Russia probably uses such weapons because it lacks more accurate modern missiles.

    Also on June 11, the Ukrainian military said Russian forces were regrouping to launch an offensive on the city of Sloviansk in the eastern Donetsk region.

    In its regular operational update, the Ukrainian General Staff said Moscow managed to gain a foothold overnight in the village of Bohorodyshne, 24 kilometers northwest of Sloviansk, and was preparing to attack the town .

    The war in the east is now primarily an artillery battle in which Kyiv is severely outgunned, according to Ukrainian officials.

    “It’s an artillery war now,” Vadym Skibitsky, Ukraine’s deputy military intelligence chief, told The Guardian.

    “It all depends now on what [the West] gives us. Ukraine has one artillery piece against 10-15 Russian artillery pieces.”

    Germany plans to revise its arms export rules to make it easier to arm democracies like Ukraine, Der Spiegel reported on June 10. Berlin has been one of the biggest arms suppliers since Russia invaded, but has been criticized for being slow to supply heavy weapons to Kyiv.

    Another German publication, Bild am Sonntag, reported on June 11 that German Chancellor Olaf Scholz would visit Kyiv with Frenchman Emmanuel Macron and Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi sometime before the G-7 summit in late June.

    German officials said they could not confirm the report.

    Ukraine has also requested humanitarian aid to fight an outbreak of dysentery and cholera in the port city of Mariupol, which has been reduced to rubble.

    Mayor Vadym Boychenko told state television that sewage systems were broken and corpses were rotting in the streets.

    “Unfortunately… these outbreaks of infection will claim thousands more Mariupolites,” Boychenko said.

    Ukraine’s prosecutor general’s office said on June 11 that it learned of the deaths of 24 more children in Mariupol as a result of shelling by Russian forces.

    In total, the office said at least 287 children have died since the Russian invasion of Ukraine began on February 24. More than 492 were injured, according to the count.

    Meanwhile, on June 11, US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin reinforced Washington’s engagement in the region in light of the war.

    “Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is what happens when the oppressors trample on the rules that protect us all,” Austin told an Asian security forum in Singapore. “It’s a glimpse into a possible world of chaos and turmoil that none of us would want to live in.”

    Iran and Venezuela, both of which are under US sanctions, have close ties. The two countries signed a 20-year cooperation plan on Saturday. Center-left Argentine President Alberto Fernandez has criticized US sanctions against Venezuela.

    “Our information is that this is a plane that came to carry out intelligence activities in Argentina,” said Milman, a member of the country’s Congressional Intelligence Committee.

    According to the Interior Ministry document, shared with Reuters by Milman, 14 Venezuelans and 5 Iranians were traveling on the plane. It listed the names of the people on board.

    Argentine courts must also rule on a habeas corpus filed by a lawyer for the crew to release the plane and return the passports to those on board, Argentine media reported.

    It was not immediately clear whether the plane, with a YV3531 tail sign, was on a list of Iran-linked planes under US sanctions. Mahan Air has been under US sanctions since 2011 for supporting Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards.

    “The ownership of the plane was transferred a year ago and it was sold to a Venezuelan company,” Mahan’s spokesman Amir Hossein Zolanvari told the official IRNA news agency.

    Venezuelan Boeing 747 stranded in Argentina over links to Iran’s IRGC

    A Boeing 747 operating for the cargo division of Venezuelan national carrier Conviasa is stranded in Argentina for its links to the Iranian IRGC’s Quds Force.

    Aníbal Fernandez, Argentinian the security minister tweeted on Saturday that “The government immobilized in Ezeiza [Airport in Buenos Aires] a Venezuelan plane sanctioned by the United States and withheld the passports of five Iranian crew members. The tweet came after a local news website leaked information about the plane.

    The plane previously operated for Iranian company Mahan Airlines, sanctioned by the United States for its ties to Tehran’s extraterritorial intelligence and covert operations force, the Quds (Quds) Force since 2008. The specific plane that belonged to French airlines since entering service in 1986, was sold to Mahan Airlines in 2007 and was later reportedly sanctioned by the United States.

    At the beginning of 2022, Conviasa in Venezuela decided to create a cargo division called Emtrasur Cargo and its first aircraft was the Boeing 747-300M purchased or leased from Mahan Airlines and named “Louisa Caceres Arismendi”. What is more interesting is that his next two planes were also supposed to be Mahan Airlines planes.

    Thanks to close military and economic cooperation between Caracas and Tehran, the new freight company could become a joint venture.

    The Boeing 747 flew from Mexico to Argentina on June 6, carrying auto parts, but according to Argentinian media, someone knew something and decided to carefully inspect the plane, Aviacioline reported on June 11.

    Although it turned out that there was no illegal cargo on board and that the shipment of auto parts had been delivered to its destination in Argentina, authorities became more suspicious that there were five Iranians and at least a dozen Venezuelans on board, the Iranians not appearing in the passenger manifest. As a result, the Iranians’ passports were seized and all passengers are believed to be in a hotel.

    According to the same local sources, Argentina suspects the Iranians of belonging to the Al-Quds Force but are allowed to leave the country on regular flights.

    But the fate of the plane is another story. No fuel company is willing to provide service to the plane for fear of third-party US sanctions. He attempted to leave Argentina for Uruguay in order to obtain fuel, but had to turn back when permission was refused, according to the Spanish language news site Infobae.

    News of the plane emerged after an Argentine opposition MP, Gerardo Milman, submitted a request for information, citing “the enigmatic behavior of the flight, the puzzling ownership of the aircraft and the composition of the aircraft. ‘crew”. The point that Milman made is that the Boeing 747 first flew to Cordoba from Mexico, apparently because of the fog in Buenos Aires and a few hours later flew to its final destination, with its transponder turned off. .

    It is not clear if the fog was the real reason the plane diverted to Cordoba, and if its crew left the plane or not.

    Also unclear is who provided information to Argentina to carefully inspect the plane and its passengers. Apparently the Venezuelan cargo operation and this particular aircraft had been under observation for some time.

    The Church offers a new X-ray of chronic poverty in the Pope’s native Argentina

    0

    ROME — Six out of ten people in Argentina have been poor at some point in the past decade, according to an annual study by the Catholic Church in Pope Francis’ native country. Thirty percent of Argentines have known nothing but poverty.

    The report was presented this week by Caritas and the Social Debt Observatory of the Argentine Pontifical University (ODSA), ahead of the traditional annual collection this weekend in parishes and online to raise funds to support the Caritas integral human development and food aid programs throughout the country. .


    None of the three national governments since 2010, successively led by Cristina Kirchner, Mauricio Macri and Alberto Fernández, has been able to solve the hard core of poverty that has consolidated in the country.

    Since its creation in 2008 by the Catholic University, the Observatory has become the most reliable source of social registers. According to its findings, Argentina has a poverty rate of 43.8% (18 million people) and one citizen in ten “suffers from hunger on a daily basis”.

    Over the past decade, indigence has doubled from 4.2% (2011) to 8.8% (2021).

    Caritas and ODSA have prepared the document “X-ray of poverty in Argentina: it is urgent to close the gap! », which analyzes the Observatory’s studies since 2010 and also looks at labor market issues. Only 42% of the working population, he found, have access to decent work and 58% have precarious employment, destitute employment or are unemployed.

    “There are 5,687 slums or popular neighborhoods in our country,” said Gustavo Carrara, Auxiliary Bishop of Buenos Aires. “Thousands of families with very limited access to basic services is the hard core of poverty. There are neighborhoods of workers who have desires: land to have housing and a job to support their families. Land, housing and work are the desires of all Argentines.

    “In recent years, the gap has widened and the number of poor and destitute has increased,” he said. “This is the real gap in Argentina, and it cannot continue to happen. Our country will not be happy if this gap is not reduced”.

    Carrara is the vice-president of Caritas Argentina and is known to many as the “bishop of the slums”, as he is one of the dozens of priests who live and minister in the slums of the former diocese of Pope Francis.

    The report supports the words of the bishop: in 2011, 25.9% of the population lived below the poverty line and 4.2% in extreme poverty. Today, the two numbers jumped to 43.8% and 8.8%, respectively. The social situation has worsened among children under 18, among whom poverty has reached 64%.

    The United Nations defines extreme poverty or indigence as “a condition characterized by severe deprivation of basic human needs, including food, clean water, sanitation, health, shelter, education and information”.

    Agustín Salvia, director of the ODSA and sociologist, said that “an important part of society cannot achieve its dreams and many cannot even meet their basic needs”.

    One of the biggest problems, he said, is that for 30% of Argentines, poverty is structural and generational. And a further 40% of the population has been unable to meet their basic needs at some point in the past decades.

    With an annual inflation rate of 58%, the eighth highest in the world – only countries in conflict or under dictatorial regimes such as Venezuela, Sudan, Lebanon and Syria have a higher rate – poverty is still expected increase.

    “We have not been able to find the coordinates of a state policy capable of providing answers to employment and human development needs,” said Salvia. “Four out of ten Argentines are poor, both in terms of income and in the exercise of fundamental social rights, such as education, health, housing and habitat.”

    The only solutions to the challenges will require different actors to come together to develop policies that respond to pressing problems while keeping a long-term perspective in terms of education, access to health care, employment and “structural reforms”. that tackle structural poverty”.

    Now is not the time to “just” reflect on poverty, but to really change the reality of the millions of people who suffer from hunger, a disease that affects 40% of children, according to Nicolás Meyer, executive director of Caritas Argentina. of this Latin American country. , rich in raw materials, especially food.

    “The current system generates poverty and exclusion, but at the same time there are many experiences of work and improvement,” Mayer said. “We must grow in dignified and decent jobs that reduce the social gap.”

    In the 1970s, macroeconomic management in advanced economies faced a new challenge. Inflation and unemployment, instead of moving in opposite directions through the ups and downs of the business cycle, have moved in the same direction. The high unemployment rate reflected slow economic growth or stagnation. The combined term coined to describe this phenomenon was stagflation. That word is back in fashion now, after half a century, as economies face the simultaneous prospect of low to zero growth and high inflation.

    Community is key to Paddon’s success

    Rallying has taken Hayden Paddon all over the world, but he will never forget his roots. Kayla Hodge reports on his speech at last week’s Waitaki Sports Awards, in which he shared the impact South Canterbury has had on his life, driving in the World Rally Championship, and how the heartbreak of being left behind l led to the creation of the world’s first electric rally car.

    Hayden Paddon knows the value of coming from a small community.

    That’s what the New Zealand rally driver credits the New Zealand rally driver for taking him to the top of his game.

    “For me, South Canterbury has been huge,” Paddon said.

    ”This local community, I would almost say. . . if we hadn’t grown up and started in this field, we probably never would have arrived where we arrived.

    Growing up in Geraldine, Paddon started young on the motorsport scene, driving go-karts from the age of 6 and racing in a mini from the age of 12.

    His father was involved in rallying, which means Paddon grew up with the sport, but it never bothered him. Rallying has become more than just a sport, it has become his life, he said.

    “I think that’s what helped me overcome a lot of the challenges we’ve had over the years. . . because in my eyes there was no other choice in life.”

    At 13, the Timaru Herald wrote an article about Paddon driving his mini. It prompted a radio interview in the UK, meanwhile, rallying at 13 was ‘unique’.

    ”Of course the community always knew what we were doing because the local newspaper was getting behind you. If you’re in Wellington, or Auckland, or Christchurch, you just wouldn’t have that.’

    Paddon worked three jobs to help fund his first rally car, but soon realized he would need more help. It taught him early on the importance of sponsorship.
    He set up his first “Shop Geraldine” campaign, asking companies to sponsor him for $100 – and 13 companies joined in and gave Paddon his go.

    When another rally car burned after an accident at the Canterbury rally, it was the community of South Canterbury that came to the fore again.

    The $30,000 rally car his dad had just bought was missing and Paddon didn’t have the money to replace it.

    Paddon felt sorry for himself, but then started getting calls from Timaru’s businessmen offering support, and within two months the community raised enough to give Paddon a better car and compete in the championship. National Rally in 2006.

    “It wasn’t one of those things that you look at in that moment and say ‘it’s good’ because it was never good, but when you look back on it and how it went for the rest of the career and the stages we were able to do [by the community] embracing what we were doing – that was huge,” he said.

    Paddon uses the phrase ‘we’ rather than ‘I’ a lot because, as he says, there’s a big team behind him.

    After competing in Rally New Zealand, Paddon received a scholarship to the World Rally Championship (WRC) in 2010.

    The following year, his team funded $4 million over three years to stay on the world stage.
    It had never been done before, and people told Paddon it was not possible for a New Zealander to be in the WRC.

    “When people were telling me ‘you can’t do it, it’s impossible, it’s never been done’, I was in the back of my mind saying, ‘I’ll show you’.”

    He did just that, raising $4 million over three years, 70% of which was raised in South Canterbury.

    ”That’s why, for all sportsmen. . . I would suggest really embracing your local community.

    Even when you’re competing halfway around the world, trying to be world champion, it all comes back to where you grew up.

    After “sweat and tears”, Paddon received a contract with Hyundai Motorsport, leading him to win the WRC in Argentina in 2016.

    It was a “pinch moment”, but it would be his only WRC win to date, after crashing in other stages.

    “Winning the WRC in 2016 was a bit of a double-edged sword because although we are incredibly proud to win the rally, there is a part of me that goes, I’m almost embarrassed to only win it.” one because we had more in us.’

    It all came to an end in 2018 when two weeks before Christmas Paddon’s WRC contract was withdrawn – with four weeks to go until the start of the season.

    It was a blow, but it ignited something inside him, he said.

    ”I had not finished. I still haven’t finished.

    ”I always feel like I have a lot to give to sport, it’s still my life. It fueled the fire to come back to New Zealand and say, ‘Well, we’re doing this our way now, we’re going to do it the Kiwi way’. ”

    Paddon assembled a team of New Zealand’s finest engineers and technicians, set up shop at Highlands Motorsport Park, Cromwell, and set about creating the world’s first electric rally car. The car was launched in 2020 and Paddon raced it at last year’s Waimate 50.

    In a few weeks, Paddon’s team will travel overseas for the first time in three years, competing in the second tier of the WRC.

    When he returns overseas, Paddon knows his community will be right behind him.
    ”Géraldine, for me, it’s my home and it will always be my home. I absolutely loved it.”

    Resumption of the Chile / Falklands air link, a “historic event”, according to the Argentinian official Carmona

    Carmona said there were still outstanding issues with the UK over ‘migration restrictions and the permanence of Argentine citizens on the islands’ (Pic M. Kennard/DCUK)


    “It’s quite painful for us Argentines to have to travel with passports to the Malvinas when we talk about our national territory”

    “A historic event”, is how Guillermo Carmona, Argentine secretary for the Falklands, South Atlantic islands and Antarctica, described the confirmed resumption of the weekly air link between Punta Arenas in Chile and the islands. Falkland, with a monthly stopover in Rio Gallegos. in the province of Santa Cruz.

    “It will allow Argentines to travel to the islands, it is very important it is a historic event. It is of great importance for Argentines who wish to travel to the Malvinas Islands,” Carmona said in an interview. on the radio.

    Comments follow on the announcement of the restoration of the weekly LATAM air link with Chile from next July 2, and for which reservations have been opened.

    “The Argentine government has been demanding since March the return of this air communication after two years of unilateral suspension by the British authorities, which began with the outbreak of the pandemic”.

    Carmona pointed out that these are “the only flights that have remained non-operational after so long”, adding that the first flight will take place next July 2, “as long as there are reservations and ticket sales”.

    “It is very important for us Argentines that the line of communication remains open so that relatives of the dead can visit the Argentine cemetery in Darwin. Likewise for veterans who want to return to the battlefields. It will also help people stranded on the islands, especially members of the Chilean community, who have not been able to return to their country since the start of the pandemic.”

    Carmona also recalled that there were still outstanding issues with the UK regarding “migration restrictions and the permanence of Argentine citizens in the islands”.

    “It is quite painful for us Argentines to have to travel with passports in the Falklands while we are talking about our national territory. These are issues that are part of a process that national authorities are trying to get back to,” Carmona said.

    LATAM announced earlier this week the first flight from Punta Arenas to MPA on July 2 and the following July Saturdays. On July 9 and 16, the LATAM air link will stop in Rio Gallegos.

    Summit of the Americas: An Opportunity to Address China’s Growing Influence on Latin America’s Mineral Resources

    0

    The Summit of the Americas provides an excellent opportunity for the United States government to work with like-minded partners in the region to address a major strategic challenge: China’s growing influence over critical and natural mineral resources in the Latin America.

    The ninth Summit of the Americas, being held this week in Los Angeles, California, brings together leaders from North, South and Central America and the Caribbean to promote democracy and human rights, increase competitiveness, strengthen regional security, and address key issues of the day such as clean energy and supply chains. Given the summit’s emphasis on “Building a Sustainable, Resilient, and Equitable Future,” securing the United States’ supply of essential and natural resources should be a priority for the U.S. delegation.

    Over the past two decades, Chinese companies have increased their investment in the mining and processing of so-called “critical minerals” in Latin America, including lithium and nickel, which the United States defines as “non-combustible minerals essential to the economic and national security of the United States”. Chinese companies have also stepped up investment in other Latin American mineral resources, including copper, iron ore and gold, which, although not defined as “critical”, nevertheless serve as the technological basis for a range of consumer, clean energy and military technologies. Figure 1 illustrates the scale of Chinese investment in mineral commodities in the region between 2017 and 2022 (Note: This chart includes a non-exhaustive list of projects identified through a search of publicly available resources such as news articles and reports).

    Between 2018 and 2020, China’s net foreign direct investment in overseas mining totaled nearly $16 billion, including investment in South America’s so-called “lithium triangle.” , the region covering parts of Argentina, Chile and Bolivia which account for approximately 56 % of global lithium resources. As demand for lithium and other critical minerals continues to grow, driven in part by growing demand for lithium-intensive clean energy technologies like rechargeable batteries, China has wasted no time in secure its share of the world’s lithium resources.

    In February 2022, for example, the Chinese company Zijin Mining announcement plans to invest $380 million in a new lithium carbonate plant in the province of Catamarca, in northern Argentina. And in 2021, China’s largest lithium producer, Ganfeng Lithium, completed a acquisition another major lithium mining project in Argentina. Chinese companies have made similar investments in Colombia copper and zinc marketsAs good as inside The copper mines of Peru.

    Figure 1. A representation of Chinese investment in mineral commodities and the deal in Latin America between 2017 and 2022.

    These investments, which are part of China’s broader effort under its Belt and Road Initiative to expand its economic influence in the Western Hemisphere, have contributed to the growing dominance of China on world mineral resources. For rare earths alone, a subset of the broader category of critical minerals, China is estimated to account for approximately 85% of global processing capacity.

    This presents a strategic challenge for the United States and its allies, who are increasingly depends on chinese production of mineral resources. Currently, net imports from the United States are 100% dependent on its supply of at least 13 of the 33 critical minerals included in the Department of the Interior report. February 2022 Critical Minerals List for which the US Geological Survey data product, and it depends more than 50% on net imports for at least 13 other of these essential minerals. During near 40 percent of the critical minerals listed, China was the main supplier.

    The United States must respond to China’s continued efforts to expand its influence over critical and natural mineral supply chains in Latin America. As the current global shortage of semiconductors has demonstrated, America’s economic well-being and national security depend on building secure, resilient, and diverse supply chains for strategically important technologies. and the critical minerals that support them. Allowing a geostrategic competitor like China to exert disproportionate influence over access to critical minerals – or allowing production to concentrate in a single geographic region – poses a serious risk to the United States and its allies.

    The United States has an opportunity to explore new ways to deepen its strategic and economic partnerships in the region, counterbalance China’s growing influence, and secure supply chains for critical minerals at the Summit. of the Americas. In particular, Summit leaders should commit to working together to prevent and mitigate supply chain disruptions and drive investment in new mining and processing facilities that use best mining practices to protect health. environmental, human and community. The parties could also commit to collaborate in mapping existing critical and natural mineral resource capacities in Latin America to inform foreign investment and trade.

    Finally, leaders should explore opportunities for developing downstream processing and manufacturing capabilities in the region, particularly to advance the transition to clean energy in the Western Hemisphere, and assess the financial, regulatory and policy changes that will will be needed to facilitate this change. Together, these measures would mark a significant first step towards building more resilient supply chains and supporting efforts to transition to clean energy generation in the region.

    When it comes to securing supply chains of critical and natural minerals, time is running out. The Summit of the Americas is the ideal platform to chart the course for tangible solutions, and participants must seize this opportunity with both hands.

    BACKGROUNDER: Biden-Harris Administration Advances Democratic Renewal Agenda at Ninth Summit of the Americas

    Promoting democratic values ​​and good governance has been a central feature of the Summit of the Americas since the first Summit in 1994, with leaders at the Third Summit in 2001 setting out the principles that would later be incorporated into the Inter-American Democratic Charter and committing to further tackle the corruption that undermines democratic governance at the Eighth Summit in 2018. This Summit, whose theme is “Building a Sustainable, Resilient and Equitable Future”, continues this tradition. Our administration and our partners will repel threats to our democracies by fortifying democratic institutions, investing in civil society, strengthening independent media, and pursuing a transparent and equitable regional digital transformation.

Our continued contributions will support the United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC) Implementation Review Mechanism and the Inter-American Convention Against Corruption (MESICIC) Follow-up Mechanism.
    • Investments in civil society: A resilient, effective and thriving civil society is an essential element of democracy, the fight against corruption and inclusive and equitable development. Working with Congress, the Administration will invest approximately $75 million over three years in 300 local community-led organizations through the U.S. government’s Inter-American Foundation to empower local civil society organizations, including underrepresented populations and underserved. Additional support will strengthen the Citizens’ Forum of the Americas to build the capacity of civil society to engage with governments and monitor the implementation of Summit commitments, and expand the Citizens’ Observatory on Corruption, which provides assistance technical support to civil society’s anti-corruption efforts.
    • USAID will launch the interagency Voice Initiative (Voice), dedicating $42 million to protect, defend and promote civic space in Central America. These programs will focus on promoting digital democracy and countering digital authoritarianism; Promoting freedom of expression and strengthening independent media; and Anti-Criminalization and Protection. The United States will work alongside like-minded partners — governments in the region and beyond, the international community, civil society, the private sector, and others — to advocate for the protection of human rights. internationally recognized rights such as freedom of expression and association.
    • Promote the integrity of independent media and information: The United States joined Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Panama, Peru and Uruguay as inaugural members of the Group of Friends of Freedom of of Expression and Journalism of the Organization of American States (OAS) and will work with these countries to address attacks on the media and efforts to silence critical voices. In parallel, we will provide seed funding and support the OAS and US-based non-governmental partners to launch the Center for Media and Information Integrity program.

    Nova Scotia UARB Cuts Payday Loan Interest Rates

    Payday lenders will get a smaller share of Nova Scotians’ checks later this year.

    In a decision released Tuesday, the provincial Utilities and Review Board (UARB) lowered the maximum interest such lenders can charge from $19 on a $100 loan to $17, effective Sept. 1. As of January 1, 2024, this number will drop. again, at $15.

    Currently, Nova Scotia’s maximum is the second highest in Canada, with Newfoundland and Labrador capping interest at $21 on a $100 loan. Saskatchewan and Manitoba provide $17 per $100. At $15, Nova Scotia would equal British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick.

    The move to $15 per $100 will raise the annual interest rate down approximately 390% (assuming a two-week term). If that rate sounds criminal, that’s because it is, but payday lenders in Canada are exempt from the Criminal Code provision that limits interest to 60% per year.

    Nova Scotia was the first province to regulate payday loans, and the UARB first held a public hearing on the loans in 2008, choosing to set interest at $31 per $100 (about 800% per year). Since then, he has periodically reviewed the regulations, each time reducing the interest. Most recently, he held a hearing in 2018 and lowered the interest to $19 per $100.

    In its decision, a panel of three council members – vice-chair Roland Deveau and members Richard Melanson and Jennifer Nicholson – summarized a hearing held in March 2022, when the council heard from members of the public, consumer advocates and payday lenders. industry representatives.

    These representatives argued that lower rates would eliminate the payday loan industry. Patty Ko, a lawyer for the Canadian Consumer Finance Association (CCFA, formerly known as the Canadian Payday Loan Association), argued that the pandemic has already had a significant effect on the industry.

    “Given the significant negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, she advised that now was not the time to make significant changes and urged that the maximum cost of borrowing of $19 per 100 $ be maintained,” the board wrote.

    Patrick Mohan, president of the Canadian Association of Independent Payday Lenders, said rates should go up.

    “Mr Mohan suggested that instead of lowering or maintaining the current maximum cost of borrowing, it should be increased to allow smaller operators to offer their product,” the board wrote.

    “While his presentation provided anecdotal evidence, there was no verifiable data or expert opinion evidence to support the proposition that the maximum cost should be increased. The Council rejects this proposal.

    The pandemic has led to a decrease in payday loans issued and repeat customers, but the board noted there was an increase in the percentage of default.

    “The data shows, for the pre-COVID period, a decline in the number of loans from 2015 to 2019 of around 8%, although the decrease in the total value of loans was only around 3%”, wrote the board. “The data further indicates that the number of different companies offering payday loans in Nova Scotia and the number of retail outlets remained stable from 2017 to 2021, despite a reduction in the maximum cost of borrowing and a pandemic.”

    The board ruled there was no reason Nova Scotia lenders couldn’t make a living charging the same rates as most countries.

    “The CCFA has provided no evidence, or satisfactory explanation, as to why this would not be the case,” the board wrote. “While there are undoubtedly regional differences in overall population, demographics, income and other financial criteria, the consumer profile of the product should, due to the nature of the product, be relatively similar across the country. The industry as a whole should be able to serve this demographic at relative parity with the rest of the country.

    Although it did not side with industry, the council wrote that it was considering the impact of the pandemic on business.

    “Without the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the board would have been inclined to immediately move to the maximum cost of borrowing of $15 per $100,” the board wrote. “The Board is of the view that a phased approach to reducing the maximum cost of borrowing, to a level where Nova Scotia consumers enjoy the same rate protection afforded to most other countries, is reasonable in the circumstances.”

    The board also reduced the maximum interest rate on post-default arrears to 30% from 60%, and left the default penalty at $40, the highest in the nation.

    The council noted that many members of the public had called on it to abolish payday loans altogether or adopt regulations similar to those in Quebec, where a 35% annual interest cap effectively ended the practice. .

    The council endorsed the provincial government’s position on this issue, stating that “the elimination of the regulated payday loan industry in Nova Scotia would reduce the short-term credit options available to consumers.”

    “It would also increase the presence of unscrupulous and unregulated lenders, especially unlicensed online lenders, which could lead to the unfortunate consequences of innocent borrowers accessing such unregulated loans over the internet,” the council wrote.

    The board will then review payday loan rates in three years, unless “a critical issue comes to the attention of the board in the interim.”

    “Apart from Lionel Messi, we are all fighting for our place”

    0

    Brighton and Hove Albion’s versatile midfielder Alexis Mac Allister is keen to join Lionel Messi in the Argentina squad for the 2022 World Cup.

    With the showpiece event due to start in Qatar in a few months, the Brighton player has expressed his desire to keep his place in the national team.

    Mac Aliister was part of the Argentina side that beat Estonia 5-0 in a friendly on Sunday June 5, with all five goals scored by Messi. The Paris-Saint Germain striker won the 2014 World Cup Golden Ball. But Argentina narrowly missed out on the ultimate prize, losing 1-0 to Germany in the final.

    Lionel Messi wins this #World Cup Ballon d’Or poll, but he was close. Thanks to everyone who voted! 👏 https://t.co/Gsk5yTpNbQ

    Speaking about his chances of making the final cut, Mac Allister told Clarin.com (via TheArgus):

    “The player thinks about it all the time because he wants to be there. But Lionel (Scaloni – head coach) has been very clear. Apart from Leo (Messi), we are all fighting for our place and that’s what we I’ll do until the last day. I’m living a dream. We’re close to a World Cup and all I’m going to do is keep working, so when that list comes up I’ll be on it.”

    THE STORY CONTINUES UNDER THE ANNOUNCEMENT

    CONTINUE READING


    Argentina will be keen to make an impression at the 2022 World Cup

    🇦🇷 Argentina are the first team in Group C! They will sit in the spot C1📈 𝙁𝙄𝙁𝘼 𝙍𝙖𝙣𝙠𝙞𝙣𝙜: 4🏆 𝘽𝙚𝙨𝙩 𝙛𝙞𝙣𝙞𝙨𝙝 𝙛𝙞𝙣𝙞𝙨𝙝: Winners (1978, 1986) 👔 𝘾𝙤𝙖𝙘𝙝: Lionel Scaloni @Argentina | #FinalDraw https://t.co/vqNvbIXi36

    The tournament in Qatar will likely be Messi’s last World Cup appearance. And Mac Allister will be keen to help the legend win the coveted trophy later this year.

    Argentina have never lacked attacking talent. Their main weaknesses are usually in the lower areas of the field.

    With the likes of Emiliano Martinez in goal and Christian Romero at centre-back adding more stability, Argentina look a more complete squad this time around.

    THE STORY CONTINUES UNDER THE ANNOUNCEMENT

    CONTINUE READING

    Mac Allister, too, did his part for the team. A versatile midfielder by nature, he played as a deep midfielder for the national team. He can also play as a No.10 or on the left flank when called upon.

    Speaking about his adaptability, he said:

    “At Brighton I played in three midfield positions and even as a false nine. It’s important for a player, to give the team and the manager options. This season has been a step forward for me. I’ve grown a lot.”

    The presence of more players who want to be part of a collective unity and help the national team win will only push Argentina’s dream of winning their first World Cup since 1986.

    Schapiro: A payday loan battle that started in Virginia with a whimper, ended with a bang | Columnists

    0





    Jeff Schapiro


    DEAN HOFFMEYER/TIMES-EXPATCH/////////



    Jay Speer has been lobbying the Virginia legislature for as long as he’s been a parent: 22 years.

    And for almost all, while he and his wife raised two children, both now out of college, Speer fought back against the high-cost instant loan industry, arguing that payday lenders and securities cars mainly exploit the poor. with debts that they find it hard to repay – if at all.

    For Speer, executive director of the Virginia Poverty Law Center, the industry is now a much smaller target, having been held back by rules imposed by Democrats in 2020, when their party commanded every corner of state government. Even Republicans long friends of the lenders supported the reforms.

    Speer’s fight with loanees may have died down, but it’s by no means over. A little-noticed mid-May settlement of a federal lawsuit filed more than three years ago by Speer’s organization and two law firms, Kelly Guzzo of Fairfax and Consumer Litigation Associates of Newport News, says as much. .

    Under the settlement, 550,000 borrowers here and in other states won’t have to pay $489 million in illegal internet-based payday loans for which they were charged 600% interest. Most borrowers will split $450 million in cash repayments. An additional $39 million is for those who paid illegal amounts to lenders.

    People also read…

    Despite their checkered track record, Virginia was open to payday lenders — they’re so called because they provide a cash advance against a borrower’s salary — during a pro Democrat’s 2002-2006 gubernatorial term. -company, Mark Warner, now a US senator who has since cooled off in the industry.

    Warner signed the legislation sent to him by a Republican-controlled General Assembly even as his top aides pressed him to reject it. One of them threatened to resign in protest. Warner’s successor, fellow Democrat Tim Kaine, not a fan of lenders, tried in vain to negotiate reforms acceptable to the industry and its opponents.

    A 2009 attempt to limit the frequency of lending — it was spearheaded by several senior House Republicans and a white-shoe law firm with close ties to the GOP — drove out some lenders. To stay open in Virginia, many revamped their business model, operating under a provision of state law that allowed them to charge higher interest rates.

    Over the next few years there would be other – unsuccessful – efforts to bring the lenders to heel. The industry’s footprint in Virginia expanded in 2011, when the state sanctioned car title lending under which a borrower risks losing their motor vehicle if a loan is not paid. . At the time, Republicans held the Legislative Assembly and the office of governor.

    Finally, in 2020, with Democrats in full control of the state house for the first time in nearly 30 years, Virginia passed sweeping protections under the Fairness in Lending Act. The measure has generated bipartisan support that lobbyists on both sides attribute to legislative fatigue over years of fighting.

    At times the debate was theatrical, overshadowing larger and lingering issues: that traditional financial institutions – banks and credit unions – then showed little interest in small loans, viewing them as risky and unprofitable. Additionally, competition among payday lenders for a seemingly captive audience was limited because their high-cost products were similar.

    Lenders were blocking public hearings with credit union workers who had been bussed to Richmond, many of them from Hampton Roads, where there were many stores. Rebuking lenders as loan sharks, an enemy of the industry—a moving company executive who tried to pay off an employee’s five-figure debt—sometimes showed up in, you guessed it, a suit of shark.

    Although it took effect in 2021, the law capped interest and fees on payday and car title loans and locked in the interest rate on consumer purchases paid over time at 36%. time. The law also created safeguards against online payday lenders based in other states or, like those in the May settlement, operated by sovereign Native American tribes shielded from many laws.

    The Pew Charitable Trusts reports that Virginia — where lenders have worked their will through well-placed lobbyists and, since Speer’s arrival two decades ago, with millions of dollars in donations to lawmakers — is the one of four states since 2010 to enact broad protections for payday borrowers while guaranteeing access to credit. The others are Colorado, Ohio and Hawaii.

    “In these states, lenders are cost-effectively offering small loans that are repaid in affordable installments and cost four times less than typical one-time payment payday loans that borrowers must repay in full on their next payday,” Pew said. in an April survey of all 32 states. who authorize payday loans.

    Among Virginia’s neighbors, Washington, DC, Maryland, North Carolina and West Virginia ban payday loans, according to the Consumer Federation of America, a consumer advocacy and research group. Loans are legal in Kentucky.

    The impact of Virginia’s new law on lenders is still unclear, though Pew says it would likely mean fewer payday stores. The State Corporation Commission’s Office of Financial Institutions is expected to produce a first overview of the legislature this month.

    A consequence of the reform: possible competition between banks for small borrowers. Personal finance website NerdWallet says low-interest, low-dollar loans are expected to be offered by national companies such as Bank of America, Wells Fargo and Truist. Could this be a magnet for cash-strapped, inflation-worried customers?

    It’s all part of a larger overhaul of a facet of consumer finance that in Virginia has long been described as big business exploiting the little man. Heck, they aren’t even called payday loans anymore. By law, these are short-term loans.

    Argentinian service exporters benefit from Forex law

    0

    Argentina’s central bank has finally relaxed forex (currency exchange) regulations in favor of local IT companies, allowing service exporters to buy foreign currency at the official exchange rate.

    The banking regulator has also freed independent professionals working remotely for foreign companies from exchanging their salaries paid in dollars.

    The news comes a month later suspicions have arisen that local IT companies could place more of their export earnings in bank accounts abroad instead of repatriating them to Argentina.

    Previous regulations required service exporters to convert all their greenbacks into Argentine pesos on the official exchange, which gave them 106 pesos for 1 US dollar, while the parallel exchange gave 205 pesos. This large difference between the official exchange rate and the parallel exchange rate forced many freelancers to abandon their local employers for a position with a foreign company that paid in US dollars.

    Such a practice dealt a devastating blow to the country’s economy, which was already badly hit by the volatility of the foreign exchange market and soaring inflation.

    Additionally, unreported revenue from tech exporters topped US$2.2 billion, according to Bloomberg.

    “The benefit extends to companies in the sector who will have unlimited access to foreign currency for a percentage of the increase in foreign sales they achieve this year compared to 2021”, reported Xinhuaciting a statement from the regulator.

    Product prices still high and operational update

    BRISBANE, Australia, June 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Allkem Limited (ASX|TSX: “AKE »there “Company”) provides an update on product pricing and operations.

    lithium carbonate

    Continued favorable market conditions had a positive impact on the price received for lithium carbonate from the Olaroz lithium facility. The average price received for the June quarter of FY22 for lithium carbonate is expected to be approximately 14% higher than previously forecast at USD 40,000/t FOB1 on sales of approximately 3,500 tonnes. Customers continue to value security of supply, which is reflected in a fully committed order book for the remainder of the calendar year.

    Spodumene

    Similar conditions continue in the spodumene market with a realized spodumene concentrate price during the June quarter of approximately US$5,000/t SC6% CIF. Spodumene concentrate shipped for the quarter is expected to be approximately 38,000 dry metric tons (“dmt“) at an average grade in line with customer requirements of 5.3% with an additional 15,000 tdm to be shipped in early July 2022.

    Current estimated annual spodumene production for FY22 is expected to be slightly lower than forecast by approximately 2-4%, between 192,000 and 196,000 mdt, due to production delays resulting from the highly competitive resource labor market. Western Australia and COVID-19 requirements due to the late reopening of the Western Australian border. Strategies have been put in place to mitigate these temporary impacts on production.

    Argentinian reference price

    Argentina’s customs agency recently set a reference price for lithium carbonate at US$53,000/t. This benchmark price is used by regulatory authorities when reviewing export sales of lithium chemicals to avoid under-invoicing and improve price transparency. This price is not used for the calculation of taxes, royalties or duties and Allkem does not expect it to have a significant impact on product exports, realized prices or profitability.

    Man Utd’s Garnacho scores a superb free-kick for Argentina

    0

    Manchester United youngster Alejandro Garnacho did his best Cristiano Ronaldo impression during the match between Argentina U20 and France U20.

    Garnacho, who joined United’s academy from Atletico Madrid in 2020, rose to prominence in 2021-22 by helping United’s Under-18s lift the prestigious FA Youth Cup for the first time since 2011.

    He was awarded the Jimmy Murphy Young Player of the Year Price and came off the bench to make two cameo appearances for the first team.

    The 17-year-old, who is of mixed Argentinian and Spanish descent, was also called up as part of a 44-man senior Argentina squad in March 2022.

    “It’s always been my dream to play in the same team alongside star players of that kind of level,” Garnacho said at the time when asked about Lionel Messi, Angel Di Maria and Lautaro Martinez.

    “And I will learn a lot from them, seize the opportunity and improve as a player.

    “This [call-up] will be talked about but I’m still young and it’s the start of my career and I’m just focusing on football and improving.

    While he is yet to feature for the Argentina first team, the winger made his debut for the Under-20s and now plays for them at the Toulon Tournament in France.

    garnacho made his first tournament start in the opener against Saudi Arabia Under-20s and then scored the winner against Panama Under-23s in their second group game.

    Argentina suffered a heavy defeat against France in their last group game and missed out on first place, but Garnacho showed his skills anyway.

    As France lead 5-0, the United Academy graduate stepped up to rake a free kick in the 59th minute and beat the goalkeeper with a sublime effort.

    Maghnes Akliouche restored France’s five-goal lead moments later before Garnacho netted a late penalty to make it 6-2.

    world economy : Analysis of the world economy: inflation hits record high in Europe

    0
    Record inflation in the euro zone is expected to fuel debate over European Central Bank tightening at next week’s policy meeting, where officials are expected to end asset purchases and set the stage for a rate hike of interest next month.

    In the United States, job growth remained solid in May and suggests that the economy is holding up as the Federal Reserve raises interest rates. Ukraine, Canada and Kenya were among the central banks that raised borrowing costs to fight soaring inflation.

    Meanwhile, Chinese authorities are pursuing measures to shore up a faltering economy, and Brazil’s first-quarter economic growth proved disappointing.

    Here are some of the charts that appeared on Bloomberg this week on the latest developments in the global economy:

    Europe

    Bloomberg

    Eurozone inflation accelerated to a record high. The gap between the highest and lowest inflation rates among the 19 members of the currency bloc also reached its highest level on record. The scale goes from Malta, where consumer prices rose 5.6% last month, to Estonia, where inflation hit 20.1%. That’s a difference of more than 14 percentage points, more than at any time since the dawn of the euro in 1999.

    387886973Bloomberg

    Italy has one of the lowest levels of work participation in Europe, which could prove to be one of the toughest challenges for the EU in its 200 billion euro effort to the Recovery Fund.

    387918313Bloomberg

    Membership of the euro is in fact a condition of joining the European Union, although the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Sweden do not seem interested. Meanwhile, Denmark, which secured an opt-out from membership before the dawn of the currency, is not budging either.

    WE

    387928303Bloomberg

    Employers hired at a solid pace in May as wage gains held up, suggesting the economy continues to grow as the Fed raises interest rates at a brisk pace to rein in runaway inflation.

    387717595Bloomberg

    High school students and their parents are increasingly questioning whether a traditional four-year college education is the right financial decision, with rising costs often resulting in crippling student loan debt.

    World

    387928365Bloomberg

    Ukraine more than doubled its interest rate with a 1,500 basis point hike that takes the benchmark to 25%. The authorities are reactivating political tools to stem inflation and protect the currency battered by the Russian invasion. Canada, Kenya and Hungary were also among the central banks that raised rates this week.

    387926394Bloomberg

    Global food prices remained near a record high as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine disrupted trade, fueling hunger and deepening the cost of living crisis. Russia’s blockade of key Black Sea ports has exacerbated supply chain unrest, sending prices skyrocketing and prompting the United Nations to warn that food shortages could drive millions to migrate.

    Li Keqiang’s recent call to avoid a Covid-fueled economic contraction this quarter

    387826002Bloomberg

    As the world emerges from the pandemic, economists warn of a troubling data point: Failing to restore jobs for women – who have been less likely than men to return to the workforce – could cost billions of dollars to global economic growth. The outlook is particularly bleak in developing countries like India.

    Emerging Markets

    387602976Bloomberg

    With inflation at 58% and accelerating, Argentina’s $500 billion economy is an outlier, even in a world where prices are soaring almost everywhere. This isn’t just a pandemic-era problem: While historical statistics are suspect, Argentina hasn’t seen single-digit inflation for at least a decade.

    Check out MUBI’s perfect movie set for ‘Pride Month’

    Posted: Posted Date – 2:43 PM, Sat – Jun 4, 22

    Hyderabad: Reveling in the different colors and shades of Pride Month, June welcomes feelings of freedom, love and unity. Over the years, society has struggled with the representation of the LGBTQ+ community in key social structures, art, and movies. However, gradually, as the rainbow of awareness shines over the world, year by year we see better-crafted films, with the aim of providing the queer community with the respect they deserved.

    Today we have more queer filmmakers, writers, directors and artists whose speaking their truth makes for a fabulous and groundbreaking watch. With the spirit of fire and a soul full of love, MUBI presents the “Pride Unprejudiced” projector, celebrating unapologetically eclectic queer joy!

    Great Freedom

    Directed by: Sebastian Meise
    Uncovering harrowing chapters of queer history in post-war Germany, Sebastian Meise’s moving drama harnesses the healing power of intimacy that flourishes in defiance of systematic oppression. Franz Rogowski mesmerizes with a powerful performance in this gripping tale of resilience and resistance. The story follows Hans, who is imprisoned again and again under Section 175, a law criminalizing homosexuality. Over the decades, he develops an unlikely but tender bond with his cellmate Viktor, a convicted murderer.

    wet sand

    Directed by: Elene Naveriani
    A thought-provoking love story steeped in mystery, this beautifully crafted gem from Georgian filmmaker Elene Naveriani questions the role of community in enforcing chronic social orthodoxies. Deeply humanistic, “Wet Sand” is a deeply moving story of resilience in the face of small town bigotry.

    The actress

    Directed by: Andrew Ondrejcak
    In search of her unique voice, a budding actress infiltrates the history of cinema. As she crosses time, space and genre, she changes form through Hollywood’s most iconic roles, reimagining today’s cinematic archetypes.

    moneyboys

    Directed by: CB Yi
    Fei works illegally as a con man to support his family, but when he realizes they only want to accept his money, not his lifestyle, their relationship falls apart. He seems able to find new life after meeting the headstrong Long, until his childhood sweetheart reappears.

    And then we danced

    Directed by: Levan Akin
    Merab, a dedicated dancer, has been training for years with his partner Mary for a place in the National Georgian Ensemble. The arrival of another dancer, Irakli, sparks both intense rivalry and amorous desire that may lead Merab to risk his future in dance as well as his relationships.

    Our bodies are your battlefields

    Directed by: Isabelle Solas
    In an Argentina torn between deep conservatism and an unprecedented feminist thrust, the film delves into the political journey and intimate life of Claudia and Violeta, trans women who identify as transvestites.

    The stall

    Directed by: Rohin Raveendran
    Starring Parna Pethe and Amruta Subhash, the film centers around a female kiosk inside a crowded mall who poses as a silent ally in a forbidden romance. A tender and clandestine encounter offers a keen insight into the world of societal taboos and repressed desires in this relevant short film. Filmmaker Rohin Raveendran makes exceptional use of the spaces of a mall to amplify the claustrophobia experienced by his main characters.

    Is that too much to ask?

    Directed by: Leena Manimekalai
    The film follows the ordeal of two trans women, Smile and Glady, who are looking for a rental apartment in Chennai, and the obstacles and social stigma they encounter not only when looking for accommodation, but as single transgender women. The documentary highlights the deep misogyny of Indian society. At the same time, it’s a treat to see the determined protagonists use art and humor to fight against the discrimination they face on a daily basis.

    In reality

    Directed by: Debalina Majumder
    How do people maintain their unique identity in a society that strives to homogenize everyone? Debalina Majumder attempts to answer that question with her empowering documentary, offering a compassionate insight into the life and vulnerabilities of a non-normative couple. The film offers us glimpses of lives that are lived on their own terms and in such lives mark their resistance against stifling social norms that threaten to homogenize diversity. A celebration of love and unity with a difference is a celebration of the struggles to experience those differences.

    Happy together

    Directed by: Wong Kar Wai
    Wong Kar Wai pushed the boundaries with this lavish, newly restored queer love story. The film reveals the story of Lai and her lover Ho. The couple go on a trip to Buenos Aires from Hong Kong. Their steamy relationship lives among the vigorous tango bars and salsa music of La Boca’s sidewalks. But tensions rise between the two lovers, as they find themselves far from home and their lives drift in opposite directions.

    Thousands of people join the anti-femicide march in the Argentine capital

    0

    The march was held in the center of the capital, culminating in the National Congress, where protesters lit candles in remembrance of victims of gender-based violence. Marchers held banners that read “We want to stay alive” while others displayed photographs of femicide victims.

    According to the Women’s Office of Argentina’s Supreme Court of Justice, an average of one femicide was recorded every 35 hours in the country last year, with 81% of those killed classified as victims of domestic violence.

    “Many of the women who were murdered had (complained) to the police and had already filed complaints with the ministry (for the status of women). They ended up murdered all the same,” said Marina Perez, a railway worker from 50 years.

    “There is still no immediate response to the violence,” she added.

    In the evening, the lights illuminating the Argentine parliament turned pink in a sign of solidarity.

    “What is happening to us here is that justice is slow and patriarchal,” said Alejandra Lume, a 58-year-old from Argentina who carried a sign that read “Old women are also killed.”

    “Despite the many complaints they make, women are often not listened to, they are not cared for and in general those who die, die after making many complaints,” Lume said, surrounded by the sound of women singing. and the beating of the drums. .

    The football rivalry between Argentina and Brazil goes back years. Both teams are the best in South America, there is no doubt, but for various reasons there have always been sparks between the two countries.

    One of the biggest crossovers between Brazil and Argentina fans has always been the comparison between Pele and Diego Maradona. Years have passed, and this discussion continues, for some Pelé was a better player, and for others Maradona was the best.

    The players of both teams generate new clashes and mockery towards their opponents. After Argentina beat Brazil in Copa America Final, Richarlison commented, and several Albiceleste players, including Leandro Paredes and Nicolas Otamendilaughed at the current Everton player. Now, when the waters seemed to have calmed down, Neymar unleashed against the Argentine national team.

    Neymar makes ironic comment mocking Argentina national team

    Neymar was the player least likely to be mocked by the Argentina national team. The 30-year-old is a teammate of Paredes, Lionel Messiand, until a few weeks ago, also from Angel Di Maria. However, the Neymars generated a new confrontation between Brazil and Argentina.

    After the team coached by Lionel Scaloni defeated Italy 3-0 to win the Finalissime 2022. The Argentina national team players celebrated with the fans and then continued the celebrations in the locker room.

    Most of the player celebrations were posted by the players themselves on social media, and that’s where Neymar appeared. It’s just that the players were singing a song against Brazil, which was about the Copa America they had won and about Messi. Neymar couldn’t take it and, via Instagram, ironically asked: “Did they win the World Cup?”.

    Beware of the risks of a triple crisis following the pandemic: Jakarta Post contributor

    0

    JAKARTA (THE JAKARTA POST/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) – The Covid-19 pandemic has gradually subsided in many parts of the world, in line with notable progress in rolling out the vaccine.

    Mobility and economic activities have increased considerably. As demand increases with the resumption of economic activities, commodity prices have also increased. However, as the supply chain disruptions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic are not fully resolved, the upward trend in commodity prices continues.

    The Russian-Ukrainian war has exacerbated the surge in commodity prices since February. This further disrupted supply, with Russia and Ukraine being among the biggest producers of energy and food.

    Russia is the third largest producer of fuels, contributing around 8.7% of total world exports. With regard to food, Russia is the largest exporter of fertilizers, with a contribution of 12.6% globally, and the third largest exporter of cereals. Meanwhile, Ukraine is the second and third largest exporter of cereals and vegetable oils (sunflower) respectively.

    Russia and Ukraine together contribute about 16% to world grain exports. Indirectly, the effects of the war inevitably make themselves felt throughout the world through the channel of prices, in particular in the poor importing countries of Asia and Africa.

    Clearly, war is putting immense pressure on world food and energy markets. Prices for wheat, corn, grains, soybeans and crude palm oil (CPO) have soared with severe supply shortages. Oil prices have remained above US$100 (S$137) a barrel since late February, while coal prices have soared.

    Food and energy import bills have already reached record highs and it seems inevitable that they will continue to rise. The consequences for poor and vulnerable countries will be particularly severe. Most countries in Sub-Saharan Africa and North Africa rely heavily (more than 70%) on wheat imports from Russia and Ukraine combined. With weak social safety nets and limited fiscal space, the sharp rise in food prices could trigger social unrest in these countries.

    The great uncertainty in the global food market has prompted a number of countries to take precautionary measures to protect their national interests by restricting food exports. Argentina, Egypt and Indonesia have banned the export of cooking oils to secure domestic supply and control cooking oil prices. India, Algeria and Kazakhstan have banned wheat exports for similar purposes.

    Indonesia lifted its cooking oil export ban on May 23. Meanwhile, China has limited its fertilizer exports. These measures will lead to a greater decrease in the global food supply and, in turn, prolong the spike in food prices. As commodity prices soar, inflationary pressures are mounting in all countries. The inflation rate in the United States hit a four-decade high in April.

    Several European countries are facing a similar situation. Argentina and Turkey face extremely high inflationary pressures of 70% and 58% respectively. Rising inflationary pressures triggered a faster-than-expected tightening of global liquidity.

    The US Federal Reserve’s decision in May 2022 to raise the federal funds rate (FFR) higher than initially expected triggered a stock market rout in most emerging economies. As investors began to revalue their portfolios, stock markets began to fall as the local currencies of these emerging economies depreciated.

    The tightening of global monetary policy has also increased the cost of funds to put additional pressure on the fiscal position, especially in highly indebted countries, as well as on businesses, which remain relatively fragile.

    Against this backdrop, the global economy may be facing its greatest test since World War II. The war in Ukraine has aggravated the Covid-19 pandemic into crisis after crisis, potentially triggering a triple crisis: food, energy and finance.

    Rising world commodity prices have affected the Indonesian economy, albeit moderately. Soaring international CPO prices led to a significant increase in domestic cooking oil prices, while soaring wheat, soybean and corn prices led to higher prices for several food commodities. The inflation rate of 3.5% recorded in April was higher than the rate of 2.6% recorded the previous month.

    Nevertheless, the inflation rate in Indonesia has been relatively modest compared to other countries, especially advanced economies which have continued to register new multi-decade highs.

    Unlike these countries, the global inflationary shock in Indonesia was almost entirely absorbed by the state budget, notably through energy subsidies. This policy option may be conceptually sub-optimal. However, in the current extreme conditions, safeguarding economic stability might be the best option we have. As a result, energy subsidies (fuel, liquefied petroleum gas and electricity) as well as compensations for the energy public companies Pertamina and PLN have increased considerably.

    As the House of Representatives agreed last week, the 2022 state budget has been revised to accommodate a huge increase in government spending from 2,714 trillion rupees (257.8 billion Singapore dollars) to 3,106 trillion rupees, an increase in expenditure of 392 trillion rupees.

    As the government expects to collect even higher revenues due to higher commodity prices, the budget deficit is lower than initially estimated. More importantly, this political maneuver encouraged Bank Indonesia to keep its interest rate unchanged, as it announced a few days ago.

    In summary, the government budget is ready and fortunate to have enough headroom to absorb the current global shocks. Energy costs in Indonesia have remained relatively low compared to most other countries. There are no long queues at petrol stations, as is becoming increasingly common in many countries.

    Most Indonesian families also benefit from relatively low cooking gas prices, as the government closes the huge gap between the market price and prevailing retail prices. But the public should not take these privileges for granted as the state budget has to bear the huge additional costs of more than 400 trillion rupees.

    How many titles does Argentina have? Complete list by year of trophies won by the Albiceleste

    Argentina

    Argentina are one of the most successful teams in football history, not only at Conmebol, but worldwide. How many titles does the Albiceleste have in their team? Here we tell you.

    Argentina national team, 2022

    football in Argentina is a very old tradition. Already at the end of the 19th century, the first team tournaments were organized in this country and the first international match of the Albiceleste took place on May 17, 1901 against Uruguayin which the Argentines won 3-2 as visitors in Montevideo.

    From there, the Argentine team was able to reap many successes, mainly on its continent, where, with Uruguay they are the big winners of the American Cup. They also won the world Cup on more than one occasion, which few teams have been able to do in history.

    Great players have worn the Albiceleste shirt throughout history and that is why it is understood to be such a winning team. Cases like those of Gabriel Batistuta, Hernan Crespo, Sergio Agüero, Angel Di Maria and of course the greatest representatives, Diego Maradona and Lionel Messi; are some of the many great players that Argentina have given away.

    List of trophies won by Argentina

    For this list, only titles won by the absolute team of Argentina will be taken into account, not those won by the youth teams nor those of the unofficial friendly tournaments. Although Albiceleste is one of the teams with the longest tradition of victories not only in South America but in the whole world, they had to endure an 18-year drought without winning a single title at senior level.

    From 1993, when Argentina were crowned champions of the Copa America and the defunct Artemio Franchi Cup, now CONMEBOL-UEFA Cup of Champions, to 2021, there has not been a single international success of their go. Until the last edition of the Copa America broke the curse. And it looks like the boom could continue.

    The Albiceleste’s most recent new title is the 2022 Finalissima, in which they beat Italy 3-0 at Wembley Stadium in London. The goals were scored by Ángel Di María, Lautaro Martinez and Paulo Dybala. Could Argentina extend their successful run to Qatar 2022?

    El Salvador struggles to adopt Bitcoin despite government pressure

    0

    Each country uses crypto differently.

    The Salvadoran government has encouraged the use of Bitcoin, while Argentina’s crypto boom has been largely organic. The two paths – top-down and bottom-up – are quite distinct in their approaches and results.

    It’s too early to tell which approach has the best chance of long-term success, but so far it seems the bottom-up approach works best for crypto adoption in a country.

    From top to bottom: El Salvador

    When El Salvador made Bitcoin legal tender, all businesses were required to accept BTC for payments. To encourage Bitcoin adoption, the Salvadorian government released a custodial digital wallet, gave its users $30 worth of free Bitcoin, and subsidized transaction fees.

    Despite these incentives, researchers at the University of Chicago found that only 4.9% of all sales in El Salvador are made in Bitcoin. Researchers also found that 88% of businesses exchange Bitcoin revenue for fiat currency.

    “You can’t just replace one aspect of a financial system and expect success,” Messari analyst Dustin Teander told The Defiant. “Each part [of the financial system] builds on each other, so if they don’t all work well together, there’s additional friction. El Salvador struggles with relatively high crime rates, natural disasters and rising poverty rates according to the World Bank.

    The researchers found that the top Bitcoin users in El Salvador were young, educated men, and nearly 90% of the surveyed population did not use mobile banking at all.

    “Overall, despite bitcoin being legal tender and significant government incentives, cryptocurrency is largely not an accepted medium of exchange in El Salvador,” the authors said. wrote.

    President Nayib Bukele is pushing to change that. He announced in November that the government planned to build “Bitcoin City” at the foot of the Conchagua Volcano. “The idea is that the local economy will run on Bitcoin, and the city will be powered by geothermal energy from the volcano,” wrote Laurie Clarke of MIT Technology Review.

    Many people are not convinced that the Bitcoin City plan is worth it. Johns Hopkins economist Steve Hanke tweeted that Bitcoin City “is an absurd stunt of a political dictator” and in response to El Salvador’s crime problem, tweeted “Bukele is too busy designing Bitcoin City to fight crime.”

    From bottom to top: Argentina

    Argentina’s inflation rate hit a multi-decade high of 6.7% in March, hitting an annual inflation rate of 55.1% according to the National Institute of Statistics and Censuses (INDEC). With inflation rising for years there has been a grassroots movement around crypto.

    Argentina was ranked 10th on Chainalysis 2021 Global Crypto Adoption Index, an index that takes into account the value received on the chain, the retail value received on the chain and the volume of exchanges between peers. An annual Ethereum conference, ETHBuenosAires, has been held in Argentina since 2018.

    On May 2, Argentina’s largest private bank, Banco Galicia, added a feature in its app allowing users to buy Bitcoin, Ethereum, USDC, and XRP. Within a week, the decision was countered by the government. On May 7, Argentina’s central bank banned banks from offering unregulated services for digital assets.

    Despite the ban, Argentinians are free to hedge their bets against the inflated peso and invest in crypto through decentralized exchanges. CoinDesk reported that in Argentina alone, crypto exchange Lemon attracted one million users and 6-month-old Belo surpassed 170,000 users.

    United States

    While companies like Coinbase and OpenSea were founded in the United States, crypto adoption in the United States has certainly faced challenges. One thing that has accelerated adoption has been rising consumer prices – inflation.

    Inflation is on the rise 8.5% for the period March 2021 to March 2022 according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. This was the biggest 12-month advance since December 1981. With the US dollar losing its purchasing power, people turned to crypto.

    The United States was ranked 8th on Chainalysis 2021 Global Crypto Adoption Index. In November, Pew Research reported that 16% of Americans said they have invested in, traded in, or used crypto. Nearly nine in ten Americans say they have heard at least a little about crypto.

    Lately, US regulators have mainly focused on stablecoins. Following Terra’s collapse earlier this month, US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said it was “urgent” for Congress to pass new legislation to regulate stablecoins.

    The crypto buzz in America was built without government incentives. In fact, it has been fueled by corporations and individuals despite government monetary policies, outdated securities laws and confusing tax policies.

    For continued growth, Teander de Messari believes the infrastructure must expand. “That means merchant apps, payments, e-commerce, etc. Frankly, we’re still a long way from that, but also closer than you think.”

    America’s and Argentina’s bottom-up approaches could be one of the reasons everyone from your brother to your grandmother is talking about crypto – everyone is involved, not just the government behind it. imposes on his people.

    Football legend and community hero Dennis ‘Den Den’ Hutchinson has died aged 63

    Luis Enrique has admitted Spain have ‘a lot of things to improve’ after La Roja were lucky enough to draw against the Czech Republic.

    Gavi, 17 years and 304 days old, became the youngest player to score for Spain as he cowered to cancel out Jakub Pesek’s opener in Prague.

    Barcelona’s midfield strike also meant Spain scored in 16 consecutive games in all competitions, achieving such long streaks only twice in history.

    Jan Kutcha then edged past the Czech Republic again in the Nations League encounter as he crushed rushing Unai Simon in the second half.

    But there was bound to be late drama as Inigo Martinez’s 90th-minute header snatched a point from Spain, who are two points behind Group A2 co-leaders Czech Republic and Portugal after two games.

    With only one team advancing to the Nations League final, Luis Enrique was happy to score a point but urged his team to improve.

    Asked if the stalemate would silence the critics, the Spanish coach told reporters: “Noise is the most beautiful thing in football. I know what I’m playing, I know where I’m going.

    “There are a lot of things to improve. But the best thing about the drawing is that the rival doesn’t add three points.

    “The important thing is that the rival does not escape us.”

    Luis Enrique was quick to heap praise on teenage star Gavi after another fine display in midfield.

    “I know Gavi very well, I’ve been watching videos of him for five years. If there was one player we wanted in that position in the first half, it was him,” he added.

    “Either he shoots or he gets into the area, and that condemnation is unstoppable.”

    How to get out of payday loan debt in Colorado

    0

    Despite all the pros and cons, payday loans are still the most convenient option for meeting immediate cash needs. Payday loans can cost you a lot more in the long run than you originally planned to borrow.

    Payday loans can quickly become a trap for borrowers due to their high interest rates and fees. The bill is coming due and they take out another business loan with even more fees because they can’t pay it. Many predatory lenders abandon their customers using deception and trick consumers into approving loans in states where payday loans are illegal.

    Below are some of the key facts about Colorado payday loan laws to help you make an informed decision about payday loans. Also, I will discuss how to get out of living payday loans in Colorado.

    5 Important Colorado Payday Loan Laws You Should Know

    1. In Colorado, the payday loan is legal at a lower cost.

    2. The maximum amount that can be borrowed through payday loans in Colorado is $500. One or more payday loans can be used to meet the $500 limit. Although payday loans in Colorado do not have a maximum term, they have a minimum term of six months.

    3. Payday lenders can charge up to 20% of the loan amount in finance fees for amounts up to $300. For every $100 above the first $300 borrowed, lenders can charge up to $7.50 in addition to standard financing fees. The law allows lenders to charge a 45% interest rate if a borrower renews a payday loan.

    4. The law allows repayment plans. However, the terms of these plans may differ between lenders as long as they are legal.

    5. Collection of unpaid debts is restricted under Colorado payday loan laws. For “insufficient funds” penalties, lenders can charge up to $25. Lenders can sue borrowers for unpaid payday loans for the full amount of the loan plus attorney’s fees. Borrowers can only be sued if they have closed their current accounts before repaying the loan or debt in full.

    Lenders are required to issue refunds for the prorated amount of APR when borrowers repay payday loans in full before the end of the APR loan term.

    5 Ways to Get a Payday Loan Solution in Colorado

    You need to pay off your debts as soon as possible because these loans come with higher interest rates that accrue until you pay off the debts. Usually, you have to pay the debt when you get your next paycheck, but lenders allow you 30-day payment extensions.

    It can seem impossible to get out of a payday loan when you have one. Fear not, there are ways to get the payday loan solution and get back on your feet. The sooner you can pay off a payday loan, the better.

    Here are some of the ways to escape the clutches of a payday lender:

    1. Make full payment

    It is advisable to repay your entire loan. This is undoubtedly the best way to eliminate your debt. Most lenders also prefer it. With the help of a well-planned budget, you can afford it. When you make your payments in full, you don’t have to worry about incurring additional debt.

    Some states won’t allow you to get a new payday loan unless the previous one has been paid off. Once you have made the full payment, you can make sure to improve your financial health.

    2. Opt for an extended payment plan

    You can work out an Extended Payment Plan (EPP) with your payday lender. This will allow you to repay the loan in smaller installments over a longer period without incurring additional fees or interest.

    Review your finances and determine the largest amount you can quickly pay for your loan each month before speaking with your lender. Make an appointment with your lender to discuss your loan restructuring before the last business day before your loan is due.

    If you need to sign a new loan contract for your PEP, study the terms carefully before signing. This way you will avoid unpleasant surprises along the way.

    Remember that not all payday lenders will participate in a PEP. However, it’s always good to find out about your lender’s flexibility if you can’t afford to repay your loan on time.

    3. Consolidate your payday loans

    Why should you consider a payday loan consolidation to pay off your predatory debts?

    Usually, when there is a high interest rate, all of your monthly payments go towards paying the interest rate payments. Interest payments are the minimum monthly payments you must make. So, if the minimum monthly payment is high, you are not aware of making further payments. Your principal remains intact and your payday loans remain the same. Therefore, lowering the interest rate through negotiations will help you pay off your debts quickly.

    You can also avoid collection agents because the payday loan consolidation company will deal with your creditors. Thus, you can lower the interest rate on your payday loans to make full repayments on them; you can also make one-time monthly payments to pay online.

    Various companies offer such services. However, not all of these companies are legit. Contact a reputable debt consolidation company to enroll in a consolidation program.

    4. Settle your debts

    Debt settlement allows you to get out of your debt situation. It will serve as a proposition to your creditors that you are unable to repay your debts in full and therefore you only wish to repay part of your total debt. Most lenders and financial institutions will refuse to enter into a settlement agreement with you and will discuss the lump sum you will offer. However, if you reach a reasonable settlement agreement, all you will see is profit!

    The first step is to approach your creditors and lenders on your own and ask them to reduce your overall principal amount to a discounted lump sum. The second step is to locate a reputable debt settlement company or law firm and hire them to complete the task. Following the second path will increase your chances of success. Working out a settlement agreement on your own is a difficult task.

    5. Consider taking out an alternative payday loan

    Consider getting an alternative payday loan (PAL) if you belong to a credit union. The National Credit Union Administration allows federal credit unions to provide members with loans ranging from $200 to $1,000. When applying for PAL, the credit union may only charge an application fee of up to $20 to cover the actual costs of processing the application. The borrower must have been a member of a caisse for at least one month.

    Getting a PAL can be a great way to pay off a payday loan and get out of high interest rates. The term of these loans usually ranges from one to six months. For six months, the same borrower can receive up to three PAL.

    Can you file for bankruptcy to get out of payday loan debt?

    Bankruptcy should always be a choice of last resort. Filing for bankruptcy has many long-term consequences that will hurt your credit for years. This is why it is essential to evaluate all other possibilities before embarking on this path. If you have too many obligations and not enough money to pay them off, bankruptcy may be possible. Payday loans and your other debts could be erased in a bankruptcy filing.

    Tips

    You should avoid going into debt again. Payday loans are dangerous. Make an effort to increase your income and avoid living paycheck to paycheck. Payday loans are never a long-term answer to your financial needs, but they can definitely hurt your financial situation. Also, many illegal payday lenders use your bank account details for theft and other illegal actions. I hope you will agree that payday loans should be avoided at all costs. Manage your money better for a secure financial life.

    How to Improve Personal Loan Applications: 6 Ways to Increase Chances of Approval

    0

    Our goal at Credible Operations, Inc., NMLS Number 1681276, hereafter referred to as “Credible”, is to give you the tools and confidence you need to improve your finances. Although we promote the products of our partner lenders who pay us for our services, all opinions are our own.

    Before you take out a personal loan, read about 6 things you can do to improve your personal loan application and increase your chances of approval. (Shutterstock)

    Personal loans can help cover a variety of unexpected projects and costs. The best way to get approved is to have good credit and a low debt-to-income ratio (DTI).

    If you need a loan, these six tips can help improve your Personal loan apply and increase your chances of being approved for the funds you need.

    Shopping around and comparing lenders is a good place to start before submitting an official personal loan application. Credible, it’s easy to view your prequalified personal loan rates from various lenders, all in one place.

    1. Decide what type of personal loan you need

    Personal loans are installment loans, which means you receive a lump sum of money up front and then repay the loan with fixed payments over an agreed term. But not all personal loans are created equal. There are many types of personal loans you can choose from, including:

    • Unsecured loans — These loans allow you to borrow money without putting anything as collateral to secure them. In most cases, you will need a higher credit score to be approved.
    • Secured Loans — Secured loans require you to provide an asset as collateral, such as your home or car. If you default on a secured loan, the lender has the right to seize your collateral.
    • Fixed rate loans — Fixed rate loans come with a fixed interest rate that does not change for the term of the loan. These loans make it easier for you to budget for your payments.
    • Variable rate loans — Variable rate loans have variable interest rates, which fluctuate with the market. Since these rates can go up or down, variable rate loans often bring uncertainty and can be difficult to budget for.
    • Co-signed loans — Co-signed loans are personal loans that you take out with a co-signer, such as a family member or close friend, who agrees to repay the loan in the event of default. If you can’t qualify for a personal loan on your own or want a lower rate, co-signed loans might be worth pursuing.
    • Joint loans — Joint loans can also increase your chances of getting loan approval and a better rate. These loans are very similar to co-signed loans, except that both borrowers can use the funds and are equally responsible for repaying them.
    • Debt consolidation loans — A debt consolidation loan combines multiple high-interest debts into one easy-to-manage loan. These loans can simplify the process of paying off debt and potentially save you money on interest since personal loans generally come with lower interest rates than credit cards.
    • Financing Buy now, pay later — With buy now, pay later financing, you can split online or in-store purchases into interest-free payments. You can use this type of loan to buy something right away with a minimal initial investment. But if you make a late payment, you may be subject to charges.
    • Payday loans — Payday loans are small, short-term loans that can help you wait for your next paycheck. You will repay them within two to four weeks. But you should only consider payday loans as a last resort. They come with fees and interest that equates to an APR of 400% or more, according to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

    2. Check your credit report

    Your credit score is a three-digit number that gives lenders an idea of ​​how likely you are to repay the money you borrow. It is calculated based on your payment history, the number of accounts you have, the type of accounts, your credit usage (how much credit you use compared to the amount of available credit you have) and the duration of your credit history.

    Lenders look at your credit score when they review your loan application. A higher credit score generally increases your chances of being approved and getting a better interest rate. By making payments on time and limiting the use of your credit, you can increase your score.

    It’s a good idea to pull your credit reports from the three major credit bureaus at least once a year – you can do this for free by visiting AnnualCreditReport.com. Once you receive your reports, review them for potential errors, such as missed payments you didn’t actually miss or accounts you didn’t open. Dispute any errors you find with the appropriate credit reporting agency.

    Visit Credible for compare personal loan rates from various lenders, without affecting your credit.

    3. Improve your credit score

    If you have a fair or bad credit scoreHere are some things you can do to increase your score and increase your chances of getting approved for a personal loan:

    • Pay your bills on time. Even one missed payment can hurt your credit score. That’s why it’s important to pay your mortgage, credit cards, car loans, student loans and other bills on time, every time.
    • Pay off your debt. The lower your credit utilization ratio, the more likely a lender will approve you for a loan. By paying off your debt, you can improve your credit utilization ratio and, therefore, increase your credit score.
    • Do not close credit card accounts. Even if you no longer use certain credit cards, keep them open. It can increase the length of your credit history, which can improve your credit.
    • Limit new credit accounts. Only apply for new credit when you absolutely need it. Applying for too many credit accounts at once can hurt your credit score because it leads to difficult inquiries on your credit report and lowers the average age of your credit accounts.

    4. Don’t borrow more than you need

    While it can be tempting to ask for more money than you need to meet a financial goal, like a car repair or a kitchen renovation, it can do more harm than good. Since a larger personal loan will come with a higher monthly payment and affect your ability to cover other financial obligations, lenders will consider it riskier. This can make it harder for you to get approved for a loan.

    5. Consider applying with a co-signer

    A co-signer is usually a family member or close friend with a good credit rating and a stable income who agrees to repay your loan in the event of default.

    For example, if you are applying with a co-signer because you are unemployed or your credit is poor, you may get approved for a loan that you would not qualify for on your own. You could also get a lower interest rate, which could save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars over the life of the loan.

    While a cosigner can make your personal loan application more attractive to a lender, it’s important to consider the potential downsides of applying with just one. If you fall behind on your payments, you could put the co-signer in a difficult position and damage your relationship, as well as their credit. That’s why you should only apply for a co-signer if you’re sure you can repay your loan as agreed.

    Additionally, it is difficult to remove a co-signer from a loan once the funds have been disbursed. Your co-signer may be stuck with responsibility for the debt for a while until you pay it off. Make sure the co-signer you choose not only understands this risk, but accepts it.

    6. Find the best personal lender for you

    There is no shortage of personal loans on the market. Take the time to shop around and compare a variety of products offered by banks, credit unions and online lenders. Look at their amounts, interest rates, fees, and any special perks they might offer.

    It can help you find the ideal personal loan for your unique situation.

    Credible, it’s child’s play to compare personal loan rates from multiple lenders without a firm credit application or any effect on your credit.

    A man who lived a life of struggles identifies with Okinawan history

    NAHA – Kiyoshi Uezu and his parents lived through the Battle of Okinawa, but he feels they never really “survived” the war.

    Okinawa and the Uezu family have a long history of suffering and despair, even after World War II ended in 1945.

    Uezu’s own struggles with hardship took him around the world for years.

    But on May 15, the 50th anniversary of Okinawa’s handover to Japan from US military control, Uezu was in Okinawa’s prefectural capital, Naha.

    After reviewing the situation in Okinawa Prefecture, Uezu said he didn’t feel like celebrating the anniversary.

    Instead, he expressed what he thought was on the minds of many people in the prefecture: “It wasn’t supposed to be like that.”

    WANT TO SEE OKINAWA AGAIN

    Fifty years ago, on May 15, 1972, Uezu was mowing lawns in Los Angeles for a living.

    In the early afternoon, a colleague born in Okinawa Prefecture rushed to Uezu and shouted, in Okinawan dialect, that the prefecture had returned to Japanese administration.

    They jumped into a car and headed towards a Japanese community in town. In the car, they listened to a radio report about the news taking place 10,000 kilometers away.

    The car radio also played an Okinawan folk song called “Bashofu” (basho fiber cloth).

    The song made Uezu want to see Okinawa again. Tears welled up in his eyes as he remembered the blue skies and water of his hometown.

    FAMILY VIOLENCE

    Uezu, now 83, was born in the South Sea Islands before the Pacific War broke out. During the war, his family returned to Gushikawa (now Uruma) in the central part of the main island of Okinawa.

    During the Battle of Okinawa, the sound of shelling by American forces destroyed her mother’s hearing.

    After the war, her father, annoyed at not being able to communicate with his wife, subjected her to his frustrations through violence.

    The father also suffered injuries when his car was rammed by a US military truck, and he developed depression.

    When the US military occupied Okinawa, citizens of the prefecture were encouraged to emigrate to South America.

    The Uezu family lived in poverty in Okinawa, so they traveled to Brazil in 1958 for a fresh start.

    But after their attempts to grow rice failed, the family found they had settled on infertile land. Relations in the family deteriorated.

    Uezu went alone to Argentina in 1966 before being smuggled to the United States in 1970.

    He says he couldn’t help feeling his family had been broken up after being “tormented” by war and military bases.

    Deep in his heart, Uezu hoped to see Okinawa in peace one day. And he felt some optimism because Okinawa’s reversion placed the prefecture under Japan’s pacifist constitution.

    Uezu worked hard to save money and returned to Okinawa in 1974, two years after returning to Japan.

    He was surprised by all the changes. Many buildings now stood along National Route 58, a major thoroughfare formerly known as Military Route 1.

    However, he also saw fences separating residential areas from US bases across the prefecture.

    Uezu decided to leave Okinawa again. He returned to Brazil a few years later.

    The South American country is home to the largest immigrant community in Okinawa, and many people have taken an interest in prefectural affairs there.

    Uezu heard some people say that Okinawa should gain independence from Japan. Others said the island prefecture would grow even more if it became a US state like Hawaii.

    Uezu says he often wonders: what is Okinawa?

    Given its historical ties, it is part of Japan. But why does it have to bear too heavy a burden in terms of US military installations in the country? Why does Okinawa alone have to make sacrifices?

    And besides, what is Japan?

    These questions stayed with Uezu as he moved around the world. He worked in a farm, a laundromat, a Japanese restaurant and many other businesses in the various countries he visited.

    In 2002, when he was over 60 years old, Uezu went to mainland Japan for the first time.

    He jumped from job to job, working in Gunma, Chiba, Nara, Wakayama and Shiga prefectures. He even lived on the streets.

    Facing bleak job prospects and hitting a language barrier with his Okinawan dialect, Uezu learned how difficult it was to live in Japan.

    FUTENMA BASIC SHOW

    Uezu also found himself receiving requests to speak about Okinawa from schools and chambers of commerce who had heard of his experiences.

    A question often raised during his interviews was the planned relocation of the United States Marine Corps Futenma Air Base from Ginowan in Okinawa Prefecture to Henoko District in Nago, also in the prefecture.

    Uezu always asked those present if they would accept a military base in their community. They almost always lowered their eyes.

    He said he knew those on the Japanese mainland were interested in Okinawa, but were hesitant to focus their attention on the issue of the military base.

    He said he thinks that’s what Japan is.

    ALWAYS AN UCHINANCHU

    Living in Okinawa for eight years now, Uezu is no longer surprised by the development of the prefecture. US military aircraft, including Osprey transport planes, fly daily.

    Although he laments that peace has not truly returned to Okinawa, he is proud that he and his home prefecture have come this far after enduring so much.

    He identifies with Okinawa and feels he has always been an Uchinanchu (Okinawa) wherever he is.

    When ruled as a tributary state of Imperial China, the Ryukyu Kingdom became a vassal state of Satsuma Domain (now Kagoshima Prefecture).
    Okinawa was later annexed to modern Japan.

    After becoming one of the bloodiest battle sites of the Pacific War, the southernmost island prefecture fell under US military rule for 27 years.

    Half a century after returning from Okinawa to Japan in 1972, Uezu looked up at the sky as he stood on the busy National Route 58.

    “In 50 years, I hope a lot of people will say that (Okinawa) has become what they dreamed of,” he said.

    The Argentine Navy training ship leaves port today

    0

    The Argentine Navy’s training ship, the frigate ARA Libertad, visited Saint Lucia for the very first time on Thursday, as part of its 50th training trip and will leave port later in the day.

    In a private ceremony on Thursday evening, Captain Carlos Pedro Schavinsky Trinchero hinted that this was the perfect opportunity for Argentina and Saint Lucia to forge a friendship and bond of goodwill.

    One of the largest and fastest tall ships in the world, holder of several speed records, the Frigate is a fully rigged, steel-hulled Class ‘A’ sailing vessel that serves as a training vessel in the Navy Argentina. It was designed and built in the 1950s by the Río Santiago shipyard in Ensenada, Argentina.

    “It is a great joy to visit this beautiful country for the first time and to share with you all our culture and our traditions, not only from the Argentine Navy, but also from all my country. (There are) a total of 92 midshipmen who are in the final stages of completing their professional practices (and there are) 326 sailors aboard this tall ship,” Trinchero said.

    ARA Libertad Frigate

    “Yesterday we celebrated our national day in commemoration of the revolution (which) occurred on May 25, 1810. During this ceremony, we had the pleasure (of sharing it) with the authorities of the Foreign Service of Sainte- Lucie and the main authorities of the Royal Saint Police of Lucia. My crew enjoys your wonderful beaches, the richness of your culture and the warm welcome of your country. It is truly a pleasure to be here”, a- he added.

    Trinchero praised the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force, particularly the force’s maritime division, whose members helped his crew feel at home in Saint Lucia. The two sides exchanged thanks aboard the ship during Thursday evening’s ceremony.
    The crew’s journey began in February of this year; team members visited Rio De Janeiro. The frigate left Buenos Aires on April 30, 2022, visited the port of Fortaleza in Brazil, and after Saint Lucia is due to visit the Dominican Republic, Cuba, Mexico, the United States of America, Ireland, the France, Spain, El Salvador and Brazil, and will return to Buenos Aires in September.

    The visit to the frigate in Saint Lucia ended on May 28, however, citizens and tourists were invited to board on May 27 between 2:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m., to learn more about the history of the ship and the life of the crew.

    The ship follows the archetypal windjammer design, with a clipper bow and carved wooden figurehead depicting Liberty in a long, flowing robe and a cruiser stern bearing the Argentinian coat of arms in cast bronze.

    The frigate made her maiden voyage in 1961 and continues to be a training ship with annual instruction trips for graduating sea cadets as well as a traveling goodwill ambassador, having sailed over 800,000 nautical miles (1,500,000 km) across all seas. Frigate has visited approximately 500 ports in over 60 countries and trained over 11,000 naval graduates.

    Democratic leader asks John Bel Edwards to veto payday loans bill | Legislature

    0

    Public Service Commissioner Foster Campbell, the state’s second-longest-serving official and an early supporter of Gov. John Bel Edwards, wrote to the governor on Friday asking him to veto the loan legislation. payday that sat on his desk for the past week.

    “The last thing Louisiana needs to fight its ranking as the second-highest state in poverty is payday loan stores luring more low-income people into high-risk, high-fee loans. that they can’t pay back,” Campbell wrote to his fellow Democrat. “As evidence published against the bill shows, there are borrower-friendly options that don’t come with predatory terms like a 36% interest rate and a monthly ‘maintenance fee’ of 13% of the original loan amount.”

    The state’s current payday loan system allows lenders to offer a loan of up to $350, due on the borrower’s next payday. The maximum a payday lender can make per loan is $55.

    Foster Campbell asked Governor John Bel Edwards to veto a payday loans bill

    Senate Bill 381 does not replace or reform this system. Instead, it creates a new product.

    Lenders offering the new product described in SB381 would make most of their money from a monthly “maintenance fee” worth up to 13% of the original loan amount.

    For a loan of $1,500, these costs would amount to $195 per month.

    Edwards staff did not immediately respond to request for comment on Campbell’s veto request.

    Campbell, of Bossier Parish, was first elected as a state senator in 1976. In 2003, he joined the Public Service Commission and still serves on the Utilities Regulatory Board, representing a district with voters more than a member of Congress. Campbell ran unsuccessfully statewide as a Democrat for governor in 2007 and for the U.S. Senate in 2016. He was also an early supporter of Edwards.

    Is a $1,500 loan worth it if it costs you $1,500 more in interest and fees?

    Sponsored by Sen. Rick Ward III, R-Port Allen, SB381 left the Senate on April 19 on a vote of 20 to 14, just enough to pass. State Sen. Gary Smith, whose wife, Katherine Smith, is a registered lobbyist for one of the companies backing the legislation, was the only Democrat in that initial vote to support the measure.

    Smith he and his wife did not discuss the bill. Payday lenders are the “one place some people have to go to get a loan. They can’t go to a bank. They can’t go to a credit union,” he said.

    A bipartisan milieu was on both sides of the final 54-35 vote in the House on May 10.

    Four Democratic senators voted with a 23-13 majority in the final vote on the measure that sent the legislation to the governor. Six Republicans voted no in that final vote on May 16.

    Louisiana Democratic Party Chair Katie Bernhardt said the party has not met to take a formal position on the legislation. But Democrats generally oppose payday loans.

    House Democratic Caucus Chairman Sam Jenkins, D-Shreveport, said Friday that Democratic lawmakers have yet to meet. “It will be something we huddle on,” he added.

    WHO fears community spread of Monkeypox, India says ready | 8 best points | Latest India News

    More than 200 confirmed or suspected cases of Monkeypox have been reported in 20 countries, the World Health Organization announced on Friday. Countries in Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and the Americas have reported infections. A senior official at the global health body feared there was community spread of Monkeypox, Reuters reported.

    Sylvie Briand, the WHO’s director for global infectious hazard preparedness, said the disease was “controllable” if the right measures are put in place now.

    In India, the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) said the government was prepared following the rise in cases in the country. ICMR scientist Dr Aparna Mukherjee urged people with a history of travel to monkeypox-affected countries and those with symptoms such as fever and body aches to get tested.

    Here are the latest developments on the monkeypox virus:

    1. ICMR scientist Dr Aparna Mukherjee told ANI news agency that cases of Monkeypox were being detected in non-endemic European countries and the United States, but said people should not not panic. “We should observe the unusual symptoms like high fever, lots of lymphadenopathy, large lymph nodes, body aches, rashes, etc., especially those with a history of travel from infected countries.”

    2. A medical device company named Trivitron Healthcare said it has developed a real-time PCR-based kit for the detection of Monkeypox virus (orthopoxvirus), PTI reported. Research is currently underway to better understand the epidemiology, sources of spread and transmission patterns of the virus. Trivitron has 15 manufacturing plants in India, USA, Finland, Turkey and China to deploy medical technology products.

    3. WHO officials have also stated that there is no need for mass vaccination against Monkeypox virus at this time, but targeted vaccination is available for those who have been in close contact with infected people.

    4. The European Union is working on a joint purchase agreement for Monkeypox vaccines and antivirals, Reuters reported. The EU is in talks to buy the Imvanex vaccine from Bavarian Nordic as well as the antiviral, tecovirimat, developed by the American company SIGA Technologies.

    5. With one of Europe’s biggest gay pride celebrations just around the corner, Spain’s LGBTQ community fears the continent’s Monkeypox outbreak could lead to a rise in homophobic sentiment based on misunderstanding of the disease, reported the Associated Press.

    6. Finland confirmed its first case of Monkeypox on Friday and Canada reported 10 new infections, bringing its total to 25. The United States also confirmed nine additional cases in seven states. The total number of infections in the United States is up to 11 since the first discovery on May 18.

    7. Argentina reported the first confirmed case of Monkeypox virus in Latin America. The patient had recently traveled to Spain, but health authorities are waiting to complete sequencing of the virus before an official announcement, AP reported.

    8. The United States has confirmed nine cases of Monkeypox in seven states. Officials in the United States said they have already begun to mobilize for treatment in states where cases of Monkeypox have been identified. Jennifer McQuiston, deputy director of the CDC’s Division of High Consequence Pathogens and Conditions, said doses of the Jynneos vaccine arrived in Massachusetts on Sunday, where the first U.S. case of Monkeypox was identified.

    Flying museum pays homage to footballing legend Maradona ahead of World Cup

    0

    A flying museum in honor of the great footballer Diego Maradona is about to take flight.

    The Tango D10S aircraft was showcased on Wednesday night before flying around Argentina for Maradona fans to visit on the pitch.

    The exterior of the plane is adorned with images of Maradona who died in 2020 of a heart attack at the age of 60 after undergoing brain surgery including one where he wears the Argentina shirt and kisses the World Cup trophy he lifted in 1986.

    The plane will also travel to Barcelona and Napoli, where Maradona led Napoli to their only two Italian league titles in 1987 and 1990. Qatar, which will host the World Cup later this year, will be the final stop of the airplane tour.

    England fans may not want to go everywhere they go. The designs on the wings refer to the two goals scored by Maradona in the quarter-final against England in the 1986 World Cup, the controversial Hand of God goal followed by a sublime individual effort through the squad. England.

    Inside the plane, there are memorabilia that belonged to Maradona.

    The plane, owned by a fintech company, was on display at El Palomar airport outside Buenos Aires, with Maradona’s family and former Argentine teammates among those attending the ceremony.

    We cannot believe or understand this madness, said Dalma Maradona, one of Maradona’s daughters.

    The love people have for him is beyond anything you can imagine.

    Dalma and her sister Gianinna were the first to board the plane. Visitors will have the opportunity to ask pre-selected questions to a Maradona hologram.

    When you’re here in Argentina you can’t realize what Diego means to the rest of the world,” said Sergio Batista, a former teammate.

    It’s a beautiful tribute that the whole world will experience, the world loved it.

    6 Genuine Ways to Get a Great Personal Loan

    6 Genuine Ways to Get a Great Personal Loan

    One thing you need to know about personal loans is that there are good ones and bad ones.

    What distinguishes a good loan from a bad one is the interest rate and the level of difficulty in repaying the loan. Bad loans like payday loans and cash advances, while helpful for now, can be financially devastating in the long run. The interest rate for payday loans usually ranges from 200% to 500%, an outrageous amount. While the interest rate for cash advances is 400%, so if you’re short on cash, don’t settle for just any loan.

    Nevertheless, the right loan for you may simply be out of reach, but today we’ll give you the top 10 ways to get a great personal loan.

    1. Make yourself a desirable borrower

    Credit history, credit history, credit history. In terms of getting a personal loan, having good credit is probably the most valuable way to ensure you get the loan you need. So, before considering any loans, good or bad, make sure your credit history is in order. A FICO score of 579 or lower is generally considered bad credit and most lenders will be hesitant to offer you a loan. Whereas, according to Experian, even a higher score of 580-669 will put you in a tough spot with getting a loan.

    However, there are ways to increase your score:

    • Pay your bills on time
    • Catch up on your overdue balances
    • Dispute anything that doesn’t appear on your credit report
    • Write a goodwill letter

    2. Improve your debt to income ratio

    The DTI or debt-to-income ratio is a percentage that indicates the amount of a potential borrower’s income that is allocated to his or her debts. Lenders use this percentage to determine your ability to make monthly payments for the money you plan to borrow.

    You can easily calculate this ratio by adding up your monthly debt. This can include bills, such as heating and electricity, as well as subscription services. Once you have calculated your debt, divide it by your gross salary or the amount you earn before taxes. For example, if you pay $900 for rent and $200 a month for heat, hydro, and internet, your monthly debt is $1,100. Now divide that by your gross monthly income, $2,500, and your DTI ratio is 44%.

    Most qualified borrowers have DTI ratios below 43%, so it’s important to explore different avenues to reduce your monthly debt, such as reducing unnecessary recreational activities or finding more affordable alternatives to subscription services. monthly.

    3. Eliminate high-interest credit card debt

    Speaking of ways to reduce your debt-to-income ratio, eliminating any debt associated with a 20% interest rate (APR), such as high-interest credit cards, should be your first thing to do when reducing your DTI ratio.

    Best ways to get rid of this type of debt:

    • Transfer your debt to a 0% APR introductory credit card.
    • Apply your “play money” to your balance to reduce interest rates.
    • Double your payments to pay off your debt faster and avoid having to pay interest.

    4. Increase your income

    What many lenders do not disclose to borrowers is their income requirements. Lenders have these requirements to ensure that certain people can afford to repay their debt. Income requirements vary with each lending institution; however, on average, a good income is considered to be $15,000 to $20,000 for the lowest loan amount.

    If you’re trying to increase your income quickly, consider applying for jobs that offer tips (on average, servers earn $190 in tips per day) and jobs that have flexible hours, so you can easily take time off. time for your two employers.

    Once you’ve found another job and earned a significant amount of money, gather the necessary documents to prove your income, such as monthly bank statements, tax returns, and pay stubs.

    However, it’s also important to note that if you’re not making at least $15,000 a year, getting a personal loan can do you more harm than good, as you have to pay off monthly APR balances.

    5. Consider putting guarantees in place

    It’s not anyone’s first choice to put up a personal item for a personal loan, but if you don’t meet the other requirements, pledging valuables may be the best way to get a loan. , in particular a secured personal loan (collateral-backed loans). Therefore, if you fail to make the payments, your lender may repossess such items as your investment account, collectibles, and other valuables.

    6. Consider alternatives

    If you find yourself unable to obtain a personal loan through the usual route, consider other types of personal loans. For one thing, a personal loan isn’t a one-size-fits-all type of loan, so you’re not the only one going this route. Other types of personal loans to consider include:

    Peer-to-peer lending: P2P loans are personal loans; however, these types of loans are guaranteed by individuals rather than loan companies and they offer more leniency than these companies.

    Payday advance: A payday advance is a loan that borrowers get from their employer. Borrowers of this type of loan essentially withdraw funds from their future paychecks, without having to request funds from traditional lenders.

    Financial support from family or friends: If you value your independence, it can be uncomfortable to ask others for help. But you must remember that your friends and family are there to support you and you will regain your independence.

    E2 Metals begins drilling the El Rosillo project near the world famous Navidad silver deposit

    0
    In March of this year, Eric Sprott formed the cornerstone of E2 Metals’ $8.5 million placement to fund drilling at El Rosillo and its Conserrat projects in Argentina.

    E2 Metals (ASX: E2M), backed by Eric Sprott, has begun drilling its El Rosillo Virgin Fields project, which sits on the same Gastre Fault that hosts Pan American Silver’s Navidad deposit in Argentina’s province of Rio Negro.

    The diamond drill program will include 2,500 m and will target seven gold bearing structures in five prospect areas. In total, 1.4 km of cumulative strike will be tested.

    Priority targets have been firmed up from the trenches, with notable results at Prospect 37A of 1.9m at 184 grams of gold per tonne and 55g/t of silver, 10.7m at 3.7g/ t gold and 25 m at 2.9 g/t gold.

    At Prospect 38A, trenching unearthed 1 m at 279 g/t gold and 116 g/t silver, while Prospect 38F and Prospect 38E returned 7 m at 3.6 g/t gold and 1.2 m at 8.7 g/t gold respectively.

    E2 Metals managing director Todd Williams said the company is “excited” about the first drill program at El Rosillo, which will further test the spectacular grades and visible gold identified in the trenches.

    “We believe that El Rosillo, which includes the wider district 100% controlled by E2 Metals, exhibits all the characteristics of a large intrusion-related gold system, with the potential for a major discovery enhanced by the proximity of the Gastre Fault which hosts the world class Navidad silver deposit.

    Drilling has already begun at Prospect 37A, and the campaign is expected to last six weeks, with assays scheduled four weeks after dispatch to the laboratory.

    Navidad deposit and province of Rio Negro

    According to the Canadian company Pan American Silver, Navidad is one of the largest undeveloped silver deposits in the world.

    The deposit contains 751 million ounces of contained silver resources.

    Besides El Rosillo, E2 Metals also has three other projects in the western part of the Rio Negro province: Vista Alegre, Ofelia and Paredes.

    Eric Sprott supports E2 Metals

    Mr. Sprott, a world-renowned commodity investor, backed E2 Metals in March this year.

    Mr. Sprott was the cornerstone of E2 Metals’ $8.5 million placement, which saw him become a major shareholder.

    Mr. Williams said Mr. Sprott’s support validated the “inherent value” of E2 Metals’ projects.

    In addition to unlocking value at El Rosillo, E2 Metals is actively exploring its Conserrat gold and silver project in Argentina’s Santa Cruz province.

    Drilling on the Malvina target within Conserrat returned recent intersections of 14m at 8.7 g/t gold and 2,541 g/t silver from 67m, including 7m at 17 g/t t of gold and 4,759 g/t of silver.

    Conserrat is close to the Cerro Vanguardia mine of AngloGold Ashanti (ASX: AGG), which has historic and current reserves of 8.9 Moz of gold and 137 Moz of silver.

    Businessman Tony Laker is seen as innovative and inspiring

    Invercargill travel agent Tony Laker has died aged 57.

    Invercargill travel agent Tony Laker has died aged 57.

    Invercargill’s award-winning travel agent Tony Laker, who died aged 57, was an inspiration to the Southland business community and a good guy, a town leader has said.

    Laker died Sunday after being diagnosed with a rare form of liver cancer in mid-2020.

    Sheree Carey, chief executive of the Southland Chamber of Commerce, said Laker’s success in the travel industry has shown other Southland business people what can be achieved nationally and internationally.

    Laker and his wife Tracey started their business, House of Travel Lakers in 1999 with no money or customers, at a time when there were 12 other travel agencies in Invercargill.

    They worked hard until it became an extremely successful, award-winning business, and Laker was a fantastic employer, Carey said.

    “He knew how to treat his staff…he was incredibly inspiring to the Southland business community.”

    House of Travel Lakers was named New Zealand Travel Agency of the Year at the 2019 New Zealand Travel Industry Awards, and Laker itself received the Lifetime Industry Achievement Award.

    A family man – the couple have two children – Laker devoted much of his time to helping others in the community, often through sponsorships, and was a big supporter of Hospice Southland.

    Laker’s good friend Jamie Mackay described him as an “extremely positive” person.

    The son of a fisherman from Bluff, Laker could “sell ice cream to an Eskimo” and was a great trader, talker and networker, Mackay said.

    He “couldn’t sit still” and was always on the move with a plan.

    “They started with nothing, zero customers, zero money, and they built a business empire over the next 20 years. They both worked incredibly hard and were innovative in the industry. travel.

    “Tony realized that to grow his business he had to expand, and he did that by touring overseas.”

    Mackay and Laker have taken farmers on “walking and farming tours” around the world, following the All Blacks to the UK, Argentina, South Africa and Japan, while visiting farms in those countries.

    When Covid-19 hit the Lakers, they changed their business model from international vacations to domestic vacations, but suffered a 95% reduction in revenue and staff layoffs.

    They left their business in October 2021 to focus on family and health, with the couple’s partner, House of Travel Holdings, taking over their shareholding.

    At the time, Laker told Stuff they were proud of the company’s accomplishments, but more proud of the support they had given to many Southland charities and organizations over the years.

    A celebration of Laker’s life will be held at ILT Stadium Southland in Invercargill on Monday at 11 a.m.

    Kylian Mbappe had a lot to say about Argentina, Brazil and South American football.

    Kylian Mbappe has been in the news lately but one comment has angered the whole continent. The French star and PSG spoke to TNT Brasil where they said the following:

    “Argentina and Brazil are not playing the best matches to qualify for the 2022 World Cup. Football is not as developed as in Europe and that comes from watching the last World Cup.”

    This created a great controversy on social networks. Considering the number of trophies and World Cups won by Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay, his opinion is perhaps less certain.

    Argentina played across South America to qualify for the 2022 World Cup. Kylian Mbappe and France were scheduled to play against Ukraine, Finland, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Kazakhstan. You can decide which team had the toughest route to the World Cup.

    If you look at any of the top European teams, you will find some Argentinian and Brazilian players. Lionel Messi, Angel Di María, Neymar jr, Thiago Silva, Alison, Ederson, Leandro Paredes, Emiliano Martínez, Cristian Romero, Dani Alves, Fabinho, Lautaro Martínez, Gio Lo Celso and Juan Foyth, to name a few , are all important to their teams.

    With the new outbreak of COVID-19 in Latin America, governments let the virus spread

    0

    After a brief period of declining new COVID-19 cases since the devastating wave of the Omicron variant, Chile, Argentina and Brazil are again seeing new outbreaks of the pandemic. Chile recorded 18,060 and 26,780 new cases respectively in the past two weeks, a 48% increase in one week. Although the number of intensive care beds occupied by COVID-19 patients in Chile has not yet increased, the other waves of the pandemic have shown that hospitalizations and deaths follow the outbreaks of cases with a delay of a few weeks.

    In Argentina, cases increased by 92% in one week and in the capital, Buenos Aires, by 128%. Four weeks ago, the country recorded 8,387 new cases, but that number rose to 33,989 last week, an increase of 305.2%. Between the first week of the month and last week, the number of hospitalized patients in moderate to serious condition in Buenos Aires increased by 64.5%, from 237 to 390.

    In Brazil, the moving average of cases is increasing, driven by outbreaks in the southern region of the country. On May 19, it reached an average of 19,128 new daily cases, an increase of 46.7% from the previous month. Given the significant under-reporting of infections in the country, it is difficult to know the true trajectory of the pandemic. However, data from hospitalizations, pharmacy tests and school reports indicate that the virus is spreading much faster than official figures show.

    According to data from the Brazilian Association of Pharmacy and Drugstore Chains (Abrafarma), the number of positive tests increased by 56% between the week of May 2-8 and the week of May 9-15. During the same period, the total number of tests carried out increased from 89,236 to 121,272.

    The number of hospitalizations in the state of São Paulo is increasing, from 1,253 in the first week of this month to 1,666 last week, an increase of 33%. At the same time, the total number of patients in intensive care beds has increased by 11.2% since May 1, from 3,179 to 3,536 on May 20.

    Last week, classes were suspended in at least four classrooms at the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG) after 17 medical students tested positive for COVID-19 in just seven days. In the ABC industrial region of São Paulo, there are several reports from parents of outbreaks of infection in schools. The mother of a student of the vocational school ETEC Jorge Street told Report Diario“To our knowledge, there were 12 cases in his class. And also, in other classes of mechatronics, electronics and administration courses, there are teachers who are sick.

    The response to signs of a new wave of the pandemic by Latin American governments is essentially the same, from self-proclaimed “leftist” governments like that of Gabriel Boric in Chile and Alberto Fernández in Argentina, to that of the fascist president Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil.

    The spike in infections in Chile comes at the same time as COVID-19 testing has hit its lowest rate in more than a year and a half. Entry tests into the country have not been required since March, and in April the land borders with Argentina, Bolivia and Peru were reopened. On April 14, the Chilean government removed mask mandates in open places, including mass gatherings such as concerts and football stadiums.

    Boric’s government adopts an alert criterion for the severity of the pandemic based solely on the transmission of “new variants” among the population. In March, with the emergence of the BA.2 subvariant, experts said this version of the virus had enough mutations from the original Omicron variant to give it a new Greek letter. However, admitting the seriousness of BA.2 would alarm the public and force the government to halt its campaign to end the remaining mitigation measures. Following the position that “the cure cannot be worse than the disease”, the criteria adopted by the Chilean government allow it to keep the economy open indefinitely during a next wave.

    This indifferent and criminal policy in response to the pandemic is a component of the Chilean pseudo-left government’s reactionary response to the escalation of workers’ struggles, with Boric sending the Carabinieri special forces to violently suppress a strike by workers in the refineries of oil on May 9. The aim is to ensure that workers remain on production lines, in warehouses and other workplaces generating profits for capitalists even as commodity prices continue to rise and the spread of the virus continues. to hit thousands of people every day.

    Since April 6, continuing the policy adopted during the January-February Omicron wave, the Peronist government of Alberto Fernandez in Argentina has abolished the mandatory wearing of masks in schools and workplaces in the province of Buenos Aires, where more than a third of the country’s population lives. The end of mandatory use was put in place days after the nationwide suspension of the requirement to report positive self-tests to the government and mandatory two-metre social distancing.

    In response to the rapid increase in new cases in recent weeks, Argentine Health Minister Carla Vizzotti signaled over the weekend that the new outbreaks would not be accompanied by any public health measures, which are limited already almost exclusively to vaccination. Vizzoti said: “We are starting today in Argentina the fourth wave of COVID-19, in a totally different situation”, adding that the increase in cases has not had a corresponding pressure on the Argentinian health system because vaccines.

    At the end of March, Vizzotti declared that “we are in the transition from pandemic to endemic”, almost at the same time as the Bolsonaro government declared the end of the health emergency in response to COVID-19 in Brazil, called ESPIN. The end of ESPIN was announced in April by the Brazilian Minister of Health, Marcelo Queiroga, in the face of criticism from several public health associations and health professionals. The decision officially took effect on Sunday, as the number of hospitalizations accelerated.

    Although Queiroga stresses that the emergency purchase of vaccines and drugs will continue, experts warn that the end of the decree could mean an even greater reduction in pandemic testing and surveillance systems. Fiocruz Foundation epidemiologist Ethel Maciel pointed out that timelines for contracting services and personnel are on hold with the end of ESPIN. Maciel said: “Services will be interrupted. Professionals who are hired by decree will see their contract terminated and this will be quite detrimental to the population.

    The policy of letting the virus spread among the population of the most populous countries in the region threatens to cause a new devastating wave of cases throughout Latin America and creates the conditions for a further collapse of its health systems, as in previous waves.

    In Colombia, which has not yet registered an increase in new cases, the Minister of Health Fernando Ruíz highlighted on May 14 the “clear probability of negative and highly contagious events in the coming days” and referred to the serious increase in infections in the United States. . However, following the line of all governments in the region, Ruíz ruled out any response to the threat of new waves, saying that a “slight increase in [the] positivity [rate] is not worrying.

    In Bolivia, the health minister of the pseudo-left government of Luis Arce said: “In the latest epidemiological surveillance report, we have detected the BA.2 variant of Omicron in the country. The Ministry of Health said that an increase in cases had been recorded and that the population should prepare for a new wave. Last week, 718 new cases were reported, more than double the previous week with 331 cases.

    Moreover, the vaccination-only strategy adopted by governments in the region allows the virus to continue to spread and develop new, potentially more transmissible and virulent variants.

    Earlier this month, the first cases of the XQ subvariant of COVID-19 were confirmed, a combination of BA.1.1 and BA.2. In March, cases emerged of the so-called “Deltacron”, a recombinant version of the Delta and Omicron variants. The emergence of new, more transmissible and aggressive variants indicates the risk of versions with greater vaccine evasion, transmissibility and virulence than previous versions. A study by US experts and researchers published this month found the Omicron variant to be as aggressive as previous strains. The work exposes the false narrative that has been propagated in corporate media and by governments for months that Omicron was “soft.”

    At the same time, governments’ indifferent and criminal response to public health problems is evidenced by their attitude towards monkeypox cases on several continents. The WHO has held emergency meetings in response to the disease, which may have been spreading undetected for some time. On May 22, the first case of monkeypox was reported in Buenos Aires.

    A global response to new outbreaks of COVID-19 is needed, using all necessary public health measures, including distribution of high-quality masks, universal vaccination, travel controls, temporary lockdowns, testing and prevention. contact tracing, which will eliminate the virus in ever larger areas of the world.

    The organization and implementation of these measures can only be done by the international working class, with the help of public health experts and researchers. Rank and file committees in every workplace must be organized by workers in Chile, Argentina, Brazil and across Latin America to fight to end the pandemic.

    Former suburban mayor pleads guilty in red light camera scandal | Crime-and-courts

    OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill. — A former suburban Chicago mayor pleaded guilty Monday to accepting bribes to support the use of red light cameras in his community.

    Tony Ragucci, who quit in 2020, admitted he got $88,000 when he ran Oakbrook Terrace. He pleaded guilty to fraud and tax offenses.

    This is the latest conviction related to SafeSpeed ​​LLC’s handling of some Chicago-area communities that installed cameras to record traffic violations.

    SafeSpeed ​​said it does not allow payments and any bribes were part of a scheme by people no longer associated with the company.

    In April, Louis Presta, who was mayor of Crestwood, was sentenced to a year in prison for accepting $5,000.

    Assistant U.S. Attorney James Durkin said Ragucci is cooperating with investigators, assistance that could help him when he is convicted. He was a police officer before being elected mayor in 2009.

    Oakbrook Terrace red light cameras generated nearly $17 million in revenue from 2017 through April 2021, the Chicago Tribune reported.

    Ragucci had championed the cameras as a way to encourage safe driving.
