News / Vessels redirect to other ports as strike chaos continues at Montreal

first_img By Ian Putzger in Toronto 05/08/2020 The stand-off between labour and employers at the port of Montreal saw another strike disrupting container traffic this week.Frustrated by the situation, carriers have begun to redirect vessels to other ports.Following the end of consecutive strikes by longshoremen and port checkers, which halted operations at the port’s terminals last week, longshoremen began another 96-hour strike on Monday, which will end on Friday.Port checkers announced parallel action from Wednesday to Friday morning.Both strikes target the two container terminals run by Termont (Maisonneuve and Viau). The port’s two other container facilities were back in operation on Monday.In response to the latest strike action, the Association des Employeurs Maritimes notified the labour union that hourly wages of longshoremen and maintenance workers who work evenings, nights, weekend and during public holidays would be changed as of Thursday afternoon.In response, the president of the longshoremen union declared that from next Monday longshoremen would only work during shifts for which hourly wages match what is in their collective agreement.The tension at the port has been rising. Last week a confrontation between striking longshoremen and management turned violent after ‘executives’ spent a day moving containers, which the union called “an affront”.Employer groups have called for the Canadian government to intervene.Meanwhile, carriers are beginning to lose patience at the continuing disruption. Mélanie Nadeau, director of communication of the port, said: “We have about 15 vessels directly impacted by the situation and, of those, two have made the decision to redirect to other ports.”One forwarder confirmed that MSC and Hapag-Lloyd had redirected vessels to Halifax. One of his clients is expecting three 40ft flat rack containers on one of those vessels. The cargo is over-dimensional and cannot be moved on rail from Halifax to Montreal.“Besides carrier diversion and admin costs, we, the importer, are now facing C$5,500($4,098) in extra costs per flat rack – C$1,6500, plus weeks of delivery delays,” he said.And he has no hopes of a quick settlement of the port disruption.“I have a feeling we are stuck for a while,” he said. © Angel Alvarez Perez |last_img read more

Investors would welcome toothier watchdogs

first_img PwC alleges deleted emails, unusual transactions in Bridging Finance case An overwhelming share of Canadian investors wants tougher industry oversight and harmonized regulation, according to a new survey published by the Mutual Fund Dealers Association of Canada (MFDA).The survey, which polled 2,000 investors in July and August, found that 88% want to see regulators provide stricter industry oversight. The survey also found that 91% of respondents said that similar investment products and services should be similarly regulated. According to the survey, 69% of investors said they favour reconsidering self-regulation from the ground up, rather than simply merging the MFDA with the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC).IIROC has advocated for a merger with the MFDA, whereas the MFDA has proposed a broader restructuring, with all registered firms coming under a single SRO and market regulation being delegated to another body.However, the survey also found that 79% of investors said they aren’t familiar with the existing SRO structure.“Given the significant responsibility of SROs in performing front-line regulation of advisory firms that provide advice, products and services to investors, it is no surprise that Canadians want a future SRO model that reflects appropriate investor protection, including strengthened accountability and governance,” said Mark Gordon, president and CEO of the MFDA, in a release.“A truly modern and forward looking SRO must reduce regulatory complexity, be investor focused and ultimately, pursue the public interest over all other interests,” Gordon added.The Canadian Securities Administrators are currently in the midst of a review of the SRO framework.

Bark Buddies return to University Libraries

first_imgStudents gather around a therapy dog and a volunteer with TDBC.Cynthia Keller, senior instructor and learning coordinator for the University Libraries, agreed that visits from TBDC are great for students.“The month leading up to finals is a stressful time for many students,” said Keller. “Students across disciplines are using library spaces to study. We like that and we want to make sure we provide stress relief opportunities for students to take short breaks from their studies.”Unlike a registered service dog, dogs are not allowed in Libraries. But Bark Buddies, a program for certified “therapy dogs” is the exception to this rule. It’s an added treat for dog lovers that the dogs visiting Norlin Library on April 9 range in breed and size. Collier said it’s not the size or breed of the dog that matters.“It’s more about their temperament or personality,” said Collier. “Any breed of dog can be a therapy dog, but you have to look at the dog and consider, ‘Do they like people? Are they social?’ Dogs that are very calm, mild-mannered, and well-behaved make great therapy dogs.” Published: April 2, 2019 Are you pawsitively stressed and in need of some serious canine affection? Fortunately, the University of Colorado Boulder Libraries and Therapy Dogs Boulder County (TDBC) are bringing back Bark Buddies this month. This means there will be a handful of furry friends to play with at each of the Libraries!TDBC has been partnering with the University Libraries for six years, connecting students with canine companions for a handful of afternoons around finals time each semester. Jane Collier is a CU Event Coordinator for TDBC. She said therapy dogs are a great comfort to students during this trying point of the semester.“It’s been scientifically proven that petting a dog lowers your blood pressure. It increases Oxytocin, which is a hormone that is associated with empathy and relationship-building in your brain, said Collier. “People relax when they are around a dog and pet a dog. They start to breathe. They feel better.”TBDC volunteers bring therapy dogs to hospitals, retirement communities, schools, and libraries within the Boulder County area. Collier said the recurring visits to the University Libraries are special to the organization.“When we’re [at the Libraries] for finals, the students are studying, they’re worried about grades and pressures, and they’ve told us time and time again how much the dogs have helped them to de-stress,” she said. “They come to pet the dogs, leave to go to class or go study, then come back. There are students who get to visit with the same dog year after year.” Therapy dogs like this one love attention.It’s recommended that therapy dogs have some form of obedience training, which includes being able to follow basic commands such as “sit” and “stay,” and not jumping or pulling on tight leashes. Therapy dogs also have to be at least one-year-old.Collier said that bringing the dogs to campus makes the volunteers feel warm and fuzzy.“We walk away and feel like, ‘Wow, it feels like we did some good today!’” she said. “No matter where we go with our dogs, we are greeted with a smile and they hate to see us go. As a volunteer, you have to keep going with it. You can’t say ‘no.’ It’s so rewarding to everybody, and the dogs love it!”Check out the Bark Buddies schedule for the month. All events are 1-3 p.m.Tuesday, April 9 – Norlin Library (East entrance)Thursday, April 11- Gemmill LibraryMonday, April 15- Business LibraryWednesday, April 17- Music Library(Imig, Tile Lounge)Tuesday, April 23 – Earth Sciences and Map LibraryThursday, April 25 – Norlin Library (East entrance)For more information, visit therapydogsbouldercounty.com. Categories:Norlin LibraryEarth Sciences & Map LibraryMusic LibraryBusiness LibraryGemmill LibraryTags:Bark BuddiesEventslast_img read more

It’s Not Only What but When

first_imgAdvertisementEngagement with customers is not only about what you tell them, it is also about when. If you want customers’ visits to your winery to be remembered, when you give your customers information is as important as the information you give them.The other day I had an email from a winery asking me a couple of questions. The first was when a customer asks you, “What is your favorite wine?” what do you tell them.My answer is that it is more important not to tell them to early in their visit. As you want them to make up their own minds.If you have an absolute favorite wine, they may (if they are not wine savvy) be influenced by what you think.Telling them too early may stop them from choosing something else that they actually like more because you are “the expert”It may stop them from buying other wines on your list because they think they may not be as good.Their tastes may be quite different from yours.Before you give a customer any information on you preferred wine, ask them to taste the wines, decide what they like best and tell you their favorite. After they have told you what they liked the best of the wines they have tasted you can praise their palate, tell them what a great wine it is; then tell them your favorite. Followed quickly by a quick couple of sentences about why the wine they chose is an excellent wine. (Assuming or course, that the wines you make or sell are excellent).Knowing what the customer likes allows you to give them more information and recommend food that pairs well with the wine. This gives novice wine drinkers more confidence in their own abilities to understand good wine and seasoned wine drinkers to tell you what they enjoy pairing with that particular wine.Another question I am asked to answer for clients is, what do you do when someone asks which is your best wine. Again, before you answer the question find out what they like. Sometimes I visit wineries and notice that I am told the most expensive wine on the list. That is fine as long as you have asked some questions and know that your guests would be comfortable paying that price for a bottle of wine. If they are not, you lose the opportunity to present the wines that are closer to their price range and there goes the sale.Ask questions, get information and then make the recommendations.A tip of the glass from me to youE Columnby Elizabeth “E” Slater, In Short Direct MarketingA recognized expert in the fields of direct marketing and sales in the wine marketplace.

National Security Minister seeks extension of Arrest and Detention Act

first_imgAdvertisements National Security Minister seeks extension of Arrest and Detention Act National SecurityJuly 16, 2011 FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail KINGSTON — Minister of National Security, Senator the Hon. Dwight Nelson, on July 15, tabled a Resolution in the Senate seeking extension of the duration of the Constabulary Force (Interim Provisions for Arrest and Detention) Act. “The Act has been a critical tool employed by the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) in reducing serious crimes, and it is therefore expected that an extension of the duration of the Act will contribute further to the reduction of serious crimes,” Senator Nelson said. The Constabulary Force (Interim Provisions for Arrest and Detention) Act, which came into effect on July 23, 2010, is scheduled to come to an end on July 23, 2011. However, a one year extension is being sought for the Act to expire on July 22, 2012. This Act extends the powers of arrest and detention under sections 50B and 50F of the Constabulary Force Act, so that a person can be detained for up to 72 hours, instead of 24 hours, without being charged or taken before a Magistrate. It also provides for the arrest and detention of a person outside of the locality of a curfew or cordon, if a Divisional Commander or a member of the JCF at the rank of Assistant Commissioner is satisfied that there is reasonable ground for suspecting that the person is about to commit, or has committed a crime within the area of the curfew or cordon.

The report added that the move by Apple is a “departure from its historic aversion” to invest in start-ups.Apple’s CEO Tim Cook said “Didi exemplifies the innovation taking place in the iOS developer community in China”, adding that “we are extremely impressed by the business they’ve built and their excellent leadership team, and we look forward to supporting them as they grow.”It is unclear what size Apple’s stake will be and experts believe there are several reasons Apple could be interested in Uber’s main rival in China.RationaleThe FT report quoted Phil Lisio, head of The Foote Group, as saying that “Apple’s got so much money, and no organic growth accelerators. So aggressive M&A with market leaders in China makes sense.”The firm may also want to integrate Apple Pay, launched in China in February, with Didi’s app.According to IHS Technology, despite Apple’s strong presence in the Chinese market, its latest investment highlights the need to work with local players to strengthen its position in the country.It is worth noting that Cook is set to meet with high-level Chinese officials in Beijing as the company faces a number of obstacles in the mainland as well as slowing growth globally.IHS also said taxi apps can be a way into developing a wider automotive strategy and this investment is further evidence of Apple’s interest in transportation and the automotive market, “beyond its current Apple Maps software.”“Apple’s recent acquisition targets include companies involved in augmented reality, artificial intelligence, GPS and navigation, camera technology and education, all of which give insight into its future strategies and priorities,” IHS’ Jack Kent, mobile director, observed.Cheng Wei, founder and CEO of Didi, said the investment from Apple is “an enormous encouragement and inspiration,” adding that the firm wants to make flexible and reliable mobility choices available to every citizen and help solve transportation, environmental and employment challenges.Didi claims it completes over 11 million rides a day, serving close to 300 million users in more than 400 Chinese cities. It also said it controls 87 per cent market share in private car-hailing and over 99 per cent market share in taxi-hailing.Back in December, four ride-hailing services — Didi Chuxing, US-based Lyft, India’s Ola and Southeast Asia’s GrabTaxi – agreed to partner to scale up their services to compete against rival Uber.Not long after, a group of Chinese investors put nearly $2 billion into Uber, as it faced increased competition.

Intelligence Brief: Does 5G promise brighter future for South Africa?

Intelligence Brief: Assessing latest developments in 6G and healthcare Related Tags center_img Previous ArticleKT throws weight behind Korea Covid recovery planNext ArticleNokia dampens rumours of Verizon 5G loss Intelligence Brief: Assessing recent spectrum developments AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to MoreAddThisMore 08 JUL 2020 Earlier this year, we kicked off a series of blog posts to discuss how suited various markets were to launching 5G. As part of the series, we want to look at South Africa this month with its recent 5G launch.South Africa is among the most diverse nations in the world, with people of many cultures and religions. The telecom landscape, on the other hand, is characterised by a duopoly where Vodacom and MTN command about 70 per cent of the market share by connections, with Cell C and Telkom maintaining approximately 14 per cent each. At the end of Q2, market penetration of mobile connections stood at more than 165 per cent, smartphone penetration at 60 per cent of total connections and 4G population coverage at 95 per cent. And yet, eight years after initial launches, 4G only accounts for 30 per cent of total mobile connections.Got you thinking into what is holding the 4G uptake in a country which boasts of 165 per cent of population having access to mobile services? It got us thinking too. So, let’s try to understand the reasons.Factors impacting 4G penetrationIn general, low 4G penetration in any country can be driven by various factors: consumer affordability, high taxes, non-availability of devices, higher tariffs, low digital literacy et cetera. What’s at play in South Africa?High data connectivity costs: As of Q2, data connections in South Africa accounted for only 50 per cent of the total. At a cost per gigabyte of $6.81 as of Q4 2019, Research ICT Africa’s Retail African Mobile Pricing (RAMP) Index ranked South Africa 33 out of 46 (one being the lowest in data tariff) African countries. Relatively high data tariffs, in turn result in consumers purchasing either short term or limited data bundles, resulting in low 4G uptake.Lower digital literacy rates: A big chunk of the South African population is digitally illiterate, having limited or no understanding of basic aspects of digital such as connectivity, devices and skills. Some industry sources estimate the number at 80 per cent. Lower digital literacy rates further discourages the uptake of LTE services.Inadequate spectrum: Lack of adequate spectrum in the market is argued to be the contributor to high data tariffs. In the absence of adequate spectrum, operators have to invest more in existing bands to densify and increase the coverage. The additional investment is then translated into higher data tariffs. Example: operators in South Africa are still eyeing 700MHz as the key band for 4G.Now, as the market is still ramping up 4G uptake, we see 5G getting rolled out in the country with some operators even ahead of schedule. So, what’s behind the 5G launches?The COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic (accompanied by lockdowns and remote working) resulted in surging in data traffic globally. For its part, South African operators like Vodacom experienced 40 per cent growth in data traffic, while MTN experienced 56 per cent growth from February to April.To ease congestion and create capacity for new data traffic requirements, the South African telecoms regulator ICASA announced a temporary allocation of spectrum in various bands (700MHz, 800MHz, 2300MHz, 2.6GHz, and 3.5GHz) until November. Vodacom leveraged the opportunity to launch its 5G services on the 3.5GHz spectrum in several cities. MTN followed the move and launched on the last day of the quarter adopting a dynamic spectrum sharing model in various frequencies (700MHz, 2100MHz, 3.5GHz and 28GHz).Launching a new generation of technology in temporary spectrum allocations might seem risky or, at the very least a bold move. But the operators have it covered. A roaming and managed services agreement between Vodacom and Liquid Telecom gives Vodacom the access to a wholesale 5G network Liquid Telecom is building using its stock of 3.5GHz spectrum. Liquid Telecom offers wholesale network services in the country on the various spectrum bands assigned to it. This explains why Vodacom jumped on the opportunity to launch 5G services on temporary 3.5GHz spectrum.For MTN, the dynamic spectrum sharing model used to launch 5G allows it to continue with services even after the expiry of temporary spectrum rights in some of the bands. Not to forget, the deal between Vodacom and Liquid Telecom is nonexclusive, opening doors for other players (MTN) to strike similar agreements and access the 3.5GHz spectrum held by Liquid Telecom.Operators in the country are also optimistic of the 5G auction being held by the end of this year, which will also allow them a smooth transition to auctioned spectrum in these bands with minimum disruption for customers.Is now the right time for 5G launches?From the 4G experience in market and the underlying challenges on data costs and digital literacy which still needs to be addressed, we expect consumer 5G uptake to be slow and estimate the technology to account for only 8 per cent of the total mobile connections by 2025 (see chart, below, click to enlarge).Based on this, one might argue operators have jumped the gun by launching 5G services in a market not yet prepared to fully reap the benefits. But, it’s the angle of looking at things that matters. There are benefits we can already see from the launches:Alternate and last mile connectivity: In recent years, South Africa has invested in its fibre footprint and now has fibre available in more areas than ever before. Fibre paired with 5G, however can be used to offer affordable internet access to users through FWA solutions. This brings us to another important argument: connections might not always be the best evaluation criteria to define the success of a technology, particularly in the 5G era where larger economic benefits are expected with digital transformation in enterprises.Enterprise 5G: Speaking of digital transformation, the full potential of 5G is expected to be realised with the help of use cases in the enterprise sector. In South Africa, tourism can act as a catalyst in 5G uptake. The use of technologies like AR/VR can bring new opportunities in tourism. Mining is another sector which stands to gain from 5G in the country.Early mover advantage: Barring a few exceptional markets, 5G will co-exist with other generations of technologies until 2025. The full stream of benefits will start to come with the deployment of standalone networks. Timely launches, though give operators the opportunity to explore and experiment with use cases, allows early partnerships to form and provides learning experiences to help in fully tapping the potential of 5G.South Africa stands to benefit from the timely launch of 5G services.Considering the 4G experience and challenges with data costs, 5G might not appear to be the right choice at this time for South Africa. Yet, the success and potential of 5G should not be measured by connections alone, particularly given the wider economic gains 5G will bring by enabling digital transformation. Moreover, with South Africa’s Competition Commission imposing a mandatory reduction of data tariffs, steps are already taken in the right direction to promote uptake of 4G or 5G.The launch of 5G services is timely in South Africa and, with the right ecosystem partnerships, operators stand to gain by unlocking the numerous opportunities in the enterprise sector. All they need to do is act quick and learn on the way.Radhika Gupta – head of Data Acquisition; Gaurav Thareja – research analyst, GSMA IntelligenceThe editorial views expressed in this article are solely those of the author and will not necessarily reflect the views of the GSMA, its Members or Associate Members.
