Now, sweet tweets for Swiss couple

first_imgThe tour of Fatehpur Sikri did not go as per plan for Quentin Jeremy Clerc and his partner Marie Droz. But the Uttar Pradesh police hope to mitigate some of the bitterness by gifting them a compilation of sympathetic messages from social media. Director-General of Police Sulkhan Singh on Friday released the 80-page booklet as a farewell gesture.Mr. Clerc and Ms. Droz had been attacked by some youths near a rail track at Fatehpur Sikri in Agra on October 22. The Swiss couple were first stalked and harassed before being brutally assaulted with stones and sticks. While Mr. Clerc suffered a fractured skull, Ms. Droz got a broken arm and many bruises. The incident triggered widespread outrage.After facing heavy criticism, the police invited people to send “get well soon” tweets to the couple with the hashtag GWSMarieandJeremy. Police spokesperson Rahul Srivastava said the police received 600-700 tweets in response. “We chose the better ones for the booklet,” he said. The tweets comprised get-well-soon messages, apologies, criticism of the system, and invitations to homes during their next visit.Among the tweets in the booklet, one read: “You both are God for us. Atithi Devo Bhav[a].” Another said: “Our country has great warmth and a few lumpen elements should not give a false image (sic).” “This shameful incident awaked our system…” said another.The police had planned to hand over the booklet to the couple. But they could not do so as they had already left for Switzerland. Mr. Srivastava told The Hindu that the Ministry of External Affairs assured him that a copy would be sent to them. A copy would also be gifted to External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj. Senior Superintendent of Police, Agra, Amit Pathak and Mr. Srivastava gifted copies of the booklet to Tamara Mona, Deputy Head of Mission, Swiss Embassy, and MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar in Delhi.last_img read more

Bopanna, Myneni lose doubles but India still in hunt for year-end Davis Cup finals

first_imgKraljevo (Serbia), Sept 15 (PTI) Rohan Bopanna and Saketh Myneni lost the do-or-die doubles rubber against Serbia as India conceded an unassailable 0-3 lead to lose the Davis World Group Play-off tie here Saturday. However India can still have a shot at the qualification for the Davis Cup finals in five months from now as per new rules. After losing both the singles on Friday, India needed a win to stay alive but Bopanna and Myneni, who replaced originally nominated N Sriram Balaji, could not keep the country afloat. They lost 6-7(5) 2-6 6-7(4) to relatively inexperienced pair of Nikola Milojevic and Danilo Petrovic after two hours and 22 minutes on indoor courts at Kraljevo Sports Venue. The reverse singles, scheduled for Sunday, have now become inconsequential. Bopanna and Myneni, who recently made a comeback to the competitive tennis from an injury, had a set point in the third set, serving at 5-3 but dropped serve. The Serbians did not give the Indians any more chances and sealed the tie in the hosts favour. India have now lost three ties in a row to Serbia, which did not have its top players. India were expected to do a better job than this, since reigning US Open Champion Novak Djokovic opted out and Filip Krajinovic pulled out due to an injury. Since new Davis Cup reforms have been introduced India will not have to go back to Asia/Oceania Group immediately. Instead, India will compete in a 24-team qualifying event (home and away format) in February, 2019 to qualify for the 18-team Davis Cup Finals, to be held either in Madrid or Lille from November 18-24, next year.advertisement The 12 winners will qualify while four semi-finalists from the 2018 season will get direct entry. The ITF will award two wild cards for the inaugural Davis Cup finals. The Indian team is ranked 20th and effectively it is 16th considering that four semifinalists will not be part of the qualifying event. The two worst teams in the qualifiers will go back to the zonal competition. PTI AT KHS KHSKHSlast_img read more

In a ding-dong battle, the plucky UiTM side handed Melaka an embarrassing 5-3 defeat.

More federal cash for water sewer systems wont solve wave of problems

first_imgOTTAWA – A new report from a bipartisan think-tank says the federal government should scale back its spending on water and sewage systems in Canadian cities for each community’s financial good.The Ecofiscal Commission report being released today makes the case that the fees homeowners pay for the water running through their taps and down their drains don’t cover the full cost of service, leading to gaps in funding that upper levels of government have been trying to fill for years.So long as fees don’t cover costs, that gap is likely to remain.“While most of us have access to good water, some of us don’t,” said Chris Ragan, the commission’s chairman.“If your infrastructure deficits are there, there’s always the possibility that we might run into a problem tomorrow.”The recommendations in the report about how to fund thousands of municipal water systems run upstream to the billions in new spending federal and provincial governments are pouring into infrastructure to close a funding gap that the commission estimates at $142 billion. The report says that at start of 2015, there were at least 1,838 communities under drinking-water advisories, the result of crumbling infrastructure.The Liberals plan to pour some $9.2 billion into so-called green infrastructure funding over the next 11 years, with an extra $5 billion through a new infrastructure financing agency with the hopes that it pries two or three times that amount from private sector investors wooed by the idea that they can charge user fees for water and waste water systems to see a return on their investment.About 90 per cent of all the homes in Canada receive water and waste water services from their local municipality, with the remaining 10 per cent using a well or septic tank and a tiny percentage in communities that have to haul in water.The cost to homeowners has increasingly fallen further away from the costs to run a system and expand it to handle long-term growth expectations, the report says.As long as the cost of water remains relatively cheap, consumption will remain high and put a greater burden on community systems, adding more strain to existing water systems, said Ragan, an economics professor at McGill University.Ragan said upper levels of government could help small communities where there aren’t enough taxpayers to make covering costs easy for each taxpayer, or help cities design user fees to ensure low-income households aren’t overwhelmed by rising rates.Canada ranks fourth in OECD in per capita water use, even though consumption has dropped by about 35 per cent to 223 litres a day in 2013 from 343 litres a day in 1999, according to Statistics Canada.— Follow @jpress on Twitter.last_img read more

Eritrea planned massive attack against African Union summit says UN report

“If executed as planned, the operation would almost certainly have caused mass civilian casualties, damaged the Ethiopian economy and disrupted the African Union summit,” states the report of the Monitoring Group on Somalia and Eritrea.The UN panel is tasked with monitoring compliance with embargoes on the delivery of weapons and military equipment to Somalia and Eritrea, as well as probing activities – financial, maritime or in another field – which generate revenue used to violate those embargoes.The report states that the Eritrean Government “conceived, planned, organized and directed a failed plot to disrupt the African Union summit in Addis Ababa by bombing a variety of civilian and governmental targets.”It adds that “since the Eritrean intelligence apparatus responsible for the African Union summit plot is also active in Kenya, Somalia, the Sudan and Uganda, the level of threat it poses to these other countries must be re-evaluated.”The report, which is over 400 pages, also points to Eritrea’s continuing relationship with Al-Shabaab, the Islamist militant group that controls some parts of Somalia’s territory and has been waging a fierce battle against the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) there. While the Eritrean Government acknowledges that it maintains relationships with Somali armed opposition groups, including Al-Shabaab, it denies that it provides any military, material or financial support and says its links are limited to a political, and even humanitarian, nature.However, evidence and testimony obtained by the Monitoring Group, including records of financial payments, interviews with eyewitnesses and data relating to maritime and aviation movements, all indicate that Eritrean support for Somali armed opposition groups is not limited to the political or humanitarian dimensions.The Group says that Eritrea’s continuing relationship with Al-Shabaab appears designed to “legitimize and embolden the group rather than to curb its extremist orientation or encourage its participation in a political process.”Moreover, Eritrean involvement in Somalia reflects a broader pattern of intelligence and special operations activity, including training, financial and logistical support to armed opposition groups in Djibouti, Ethiopia, the Sudan and possibly Uganda in violation of the Security Council’s embargoes. Among the concerns the Group expresses regarding Somalia are the TFG’s “lack of vision or cohesion, its endemic corruption and its failure to advance the political process,” all of which are impediments to security and stabilization in southern Somalia.The “burgeoning” engagement in Somalia of private security companies, whether to deter pirates or to provide security on land, is of growing concern, it adds. The Group believes that at least two such companies have committed significant violations of the arms embargo by engaging in unauthorized training and equipping of Somali militias. 28 July 2011The Eritrean Government planned a massive attack on an African Union meeting held earlier this year, according to a new United Nations report that states that this was just one of multiple violations of Security Council arms embargoes committed by the small East African nation. read more

Somalia deforestation among UN list of 10 Stories the World Should Hear

Does deforestation improve or worsen human health? What exactly has happened in Somalia since Hollywood released a film called “Black Hawk Down?” How can farmers living at the mercy of middle men far from urban centres in Africa, Asia, or Latin America learn how much their produce is worth in distant markets?These are among the questions members of the public might ask and which are answered by what the head of the United Nations Department of Public Information (DPI), Shashi Tharoor, presented today, on World Press Freedom Day, as “Ten Stories the World Should Hear More About.”“Our list presents a wide spectrum of matters of concern to many, many people around the world, and we look forward to working with media everywhere to help raise the profile of these stories,” Mr. Tharoor, the UN Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information, said at a seminar on the role of media in promoting tolerance.If it were asked the first answer, DPI would point to UN Environment Programme (UNEP) reports from scientists who “have identified a loathsome catalogue of infectious diseases that have revived and thrived in places where natural habitats are altered or degraded by loggers, road and dam builders and urban encroachment.”“A team from Johns Hopkins University in the United States found that even a 1 per cent increase in deforestation in Peru increases the number of malaria-bearing mosquitoes by 8 percent,” it says. Malaria mosquitoes are also breeding in stagnant water in shallow gem-mining pits in Sri Lanka.In the United States, “cases of the tick-borne Lyme disease in New York and Connecticut have surged as humans have moved into forested areas where tick-carrying deer thrive,” it says.The lack of security in Somalia, which has endured the longest period of state collapse in recent history, has kept “the presence of international media to a minimum at a time when this story needs a bright light from the outside helping to put all parties on notice that the world is watching,” DPI says.The UN system is providing Somalis with humanitarian and development assistance, where possible, but “greater media exposure can also help to mobilize humanitarian aid to the country which continues to face drought and famine in addition to the recent deaths and damage to its coastline and fishing villages from the recent Indian Ocean tsunami,” it says.On “Farming in the Dark,” DPI says, “Poor farmers have little chance of getting a fair price for their produce if they don’t know how much markets beyond their villages are willing to pay. The Internet is levelling their playing field through schemes such as INFOSHARE.”With market information being “a central plank in efforts to break out of the poverty cycle,” the example it gives is that INFOSHARE, run by the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), is allowing thousands of remote cocoa and coffee farmers in Cameroon, West Africa, to gain access to the latest market news.The farmer’s share of the price of a package of coffee sold off the supermarket shelf has fallen from 37 per cent in the early 1990s to between 6 and 8 per cent in the new millennium, while cocoa producers get about 7 per cent of the supermarket value, DPI says.Other underplayed stories include the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) encouraging farmers in Turkey and Thailand to plant legal plants instead of the opium poppies used to make heroin, the post-conflict successes of the UN Mission in Sierra Leone (UNAMSIL) and the abduction, murders, mutilation and other abuse of northern Ugandan children by the rebel Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), DPI says.Two other underplayed stories are: the emergence of more than 100 human rights institututions in recent years, each one active in working to prevent abuses ranging from torture to discrimination to conflict resolution; and the continuing global epidemic of violence against women, with the abuse usually perpetrated by someone known to the victim.In addition, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) have been campaigning in 30 countries in Asia and Africa against obstetric fistula, a childbirth complication which can kill the child and leave the mother with chronic incontinence. Doctors say it could be prevented if girls were allowed to marry later and received adequate health care during pregnancy and delivery.Although the world responded generously after Hurricane Ivan devastated the tiny Caribbean island of Grenada last September, seven months later the UN Development Programme (UNDP reports that the producer of nutmeg and other spices “is living proof of how difficult it can be to translate outpourings of international assistance into recovery and reconstruction,” DPI says. read more

Canadians missing loan payments falls to prerecession levels but debts mount

by Sunny Freeman, The Canadian Press Posted Nov 6, 2012 4:17 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – The number of Canadians missing or defaulting on loan payments fell to pre-recession levels during the summer even though the amount of money owed continued to rise, according to a report from Equifax Canada.Overall non-mortgage debt loads continued to increase during the third quarter, up 1.8 per cent from the same quarter of last year, the credit-monitoring firm said in its latest Quarterly Credit Trends Report released Tuesday. However, only 1.22 per cent of debts were unpaid after 90 days or more in the July-September quarter.That’s down sharply from 1.37 per cent in the previous quarter and the lowest delinquency rate on record going back to early 2007, before the recession began.“This ultimately is a good measure of how people are servicing their debt,” said Nadim Abdo, vice-president of consulting solutions at Equifax Canada.“Debt is increasing at a slower rate, the actual delinquencies are improving, they’re going down. That to me actually shows responsibility of some sort.”The Equifax report suggested Canadian non-mortgage debt totalled $489 billion in the third quarter, up from $484.7 billion in the second quarter.The biggest increase was a nine per cent jump in auto financing loans as buying activity in the Canadian auto market picked up over the past year.Balances on credit cards were actually down, while money owed to banks through term loans and lines of credit grew only moderately.Abdo pointed out that while credit card balances have been falling over the past two years, often lines of credit balances would grow at the same time, suggesting that consumers were transferring credit card debt to other types of lower interest borrowing.“The drop in credit cards could be a deleverage rather than just transferring them somewhere else,” he said.“You could actually argue that people are paying off at least a bit of their credit card debt now.”In addition the credit bureau’s credit seeking index — a measure of consumers’ appetite to take on new debt — actually sat about nine per cent lower than where it stood in 2007, a further sign there is some control in the market, Abdo said.“People who are using credit are using their own credit facilities that they have, versus applying for new ones (like) they were back in the heyday,” he said.“To me, that would be a sign of control.”The study’s findings could be taken as a moderately encouraging sign that Canadians may finally be heeding repeated warnings from both Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney and Finance Minister Jim Flaherty about the perils of taking on too much debt.Still, Statistics Canada’s recently released revised data shows that household market debt has risen to 163 per cent of disposable income, well above the 152 per cent previously reported using a less focused measure.A report earlier this year by Moody’s Analytics said with Canadians so deep in debt, it would be extremely difficult for domestic spending to pick up slack in the economy if things started to go downhill.That could result in a serious downward spiral in employment levels, household spending and the quantity and quality of credit outstanding, it said.During the most recent quarter, consumer credit conditions in Canada remained “stable” and in line with the firm’s projections for GDP growth and unemployment, noted Cristian deRitis, senior director of consumer credit economics at Moody’s.“Balances are declining for credit cards, personal finance and sales finance loans as borrowers turn to bank instalment loans and lines of credit to meet their needs,” he said.“Auto financing continues to experience rapid expansion as Canadians flock to dealer lots and showrooms.”Abdo said that based on the current Canadian economic climate, he expects the trend of declining debt accumulation to continue — barring some large unforeseen shock from the global economy.

Kildare chambers could be merged into new business association

first_imgMEMBERS OF KILDARE’S two chambers are to vote on a merger that would create a new business association.The vote on the proposal for a new County Kildare Chamber will take place as the members of North Kildare and Newbridge Chambers hold their concurrent EGMs tomorrow (Wednesday 6 November) in separate hotels.Eilis Quinlan, President of North Kildare Chamber, said that they are urging members of both chambers to support the resolution “if you agree that this is the right proposition for the business community”.One county chamber will help and support our local economy, provide strength in numbers and will be a powerful voice when liaising with both local and national government. The resolution would allow for the creation of a brand new County Kildare Chamber, which is described as “not simply a merger of two chambers”, but instead a new business association that represents the entire County of Kildare.If the members vote for County Kildare Chamber, it would become the third-largest chamber in the country with an expected membership of around 500.At this year’s North Kildare Chamber Annual Conference, Richard Bruton, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, said that a “County Kildare Chamber with one single voice best represents the varied business community within the county including SME’s, retailers and multinationals”.David O’Reilly, President of Newbridge Chamber, said that a huge amount of research, preparation and consultation was undertaken to establish the need and viability of a county-wide chamber.Read: Gas from a dump in Kildare to become electricity for 14,000 houses>last_img read more

CygnusWasserstein Deal on Back Burner

first_img“I was surprised that they’d be in the market for M&A,” the source said.What Happened?When sale talks began, observers estimated ABRY’s asking price was upwards of $240 million, or about 8x EBITDA. As negotiations progressed, however, Wasserstein’s offer was said to have dipped to, or below, $200 million.“Cygnus’ second lien holders didn’t like their take and they ended up screwing the whole deal” with Wasserstein, another knowledgeable M&A source told FOLIO:. In September, Moody’s Investors Service downgraded three of Cygnus Business Media’s ratings as a result of the publisher’s disclosure that it was in default under the financial covenants of its senior secured loan agreements. Cygnus, according to Moody’s, failed to comply with terms of its first lien senior secured loan agreement and its Series A preferred shareholders agreement. At the time, Cygnus had not announced plans to fund the payment of approximately $167 million in debt which is scheduled to mature in July 2009. About $9 million is due in January.Will a Deal Get Done?“It’s a tough time in the economy. The best thing for Cygnus is to get a deal done and begin focusing on their business and strategy,” one source told FOLIO:.  “ABRY is still looking to get something done before the end of the year.”Another source isn’t as optimistic. “The whole thing is still up in the air, but it doesn’t sound like a deal is going to get done at this time.  It is not a pretty situation.” This summer, Wasserstein and Co. emerged as the likely buyer for Cygnus Business Media. A deal was expected to close by the end of August.Now, Wasserstein and Cygnus owners, Boston-based ABRY Partners, are “going in different directions,” a knowledgeable source told FOLIO: this week.“Exclusivity was broken,” said the source. “While they still reach out occasionally … [Wasserstein] essentially is on the back burner.”ABRY, according to the source, is entertaining bids from a pair of separate private equity groups. The source declined to name the bidders but called the more interested party “surprising.” last_img read more

ESL pro gaming league to start testing for drugs

first_imgProfessional gamers are going to have to submit to drug testing before jumping on the computer for their next big tournament. The Electronic Sports League announced this week that they will require mandatory drug testing before their major events, starting with next month’s ESL One in Cologne, Germany. The move came after a player admitted to using the drug Adderall during a Counter Strike match hosted by the ESL. This is causing quite a stir amongst the gaming community.Trevor Schmidt, Senior Manager at the Electronic Sports League, told Geek.com that in light of a player coming out about his use of Adderall, the ESL plans to revise their drug policies going forward. That player was Cory Friesen, better known to fellow gamers as “Semphis,” who said in a YouTube video last week that he and fellow Cloud9 team members used the drug during a Counter Strike tournament hosted by the ESL. “Esports has seen a dramatic increase in prize money, sponsorship and demand on the players to be successful. The need to find an edge against their fellow competitors has led many players in the direction of PEDs [Performance Enhancing Drugs]. ESL believes it’s critical to provide a level playing field for all players and to maintain the integrity of the sport moving forward,” Schmidt added.The ESL is still working out which exact drugs they will be testing for, and determining what the punishment will be for those who test positive. But their key focus is on amphetamines. They plan to use skin and sweat tests on site during the tournament. Schmidt says these tests will not interfere with the player’s scheduled matches. They also hope to raise awareness of the dangers of performance enhancing drugs by partnering with NADA at the event, and offer information to players and fans alike. The ESL feels it is integral to test players for PEDs. Those at the competitive level often spend eight hours a day, over a span of two to three days in a series of tournaments, and Schmidt says this leads to professional players wanting to maintain a strong edge for the duration of the event. “For all of these reasons and more, drugs that help give them energy, focus and improve their attention to detail are obviously of huge benefit.”Berserk: USF4 Jemmillion vs AG|Demon Hyo.But not everyone agrees. I spoke with professional gamer and commentator @Jemmillion who feels there’s more to gaming than just being able to stay focused. “Can Adderall help a player focus more, and therefore perform better? Yes, it’s possible. But if that player knows nothing about the game, the characters, the moves, etc., being able to focus won’t matter.” She feels there’s more to the issue than fairness and equality, and doesn’t think drug testing has a place in the ESL, “I think it’s going to cause unnecessary issues for the eSports community at a time where we are finally growing and gaining positive publicity.”Drug testing is mandatory in other major sports competitions, so it should come as no surprise that the Electronic Sports League is following suit and instituting their regulations. When people talk about performance enhancing drugs in other sports, they look mainly at the Human Growth Hormone and other steroids that change the players physical attributes — making them stronger, faster, a near superhuman. Adderall has been described as having a similar effect to the mind by some professionals, “It is used to treat children for ADHD but has the exact opposite effect in adults and is in the category of amphetamines,” Michael Bender, PT, DPT, a physical therapist out of Los Angeles, CA told Geek.com.This isn’t the first time Adderall has been in the news. Over the last few years the drug has gained a lot of attention because of its growing use on college campuses. Studies found that students, especially upper classmen and those in more demanding programs, have turned to Adderall as a way to stay focused and stay awake to get through assignments. A report released by the US National Library of Medicine/ National Institutes of Health found some 34% of students surveyed admitting to using Adderall without a prescription when they were stressed out about a school project or test.It’s no wonder the practice has caught on with the professional gaming community. Back in 2013, the United States began recognizing eSports players as professional athletes, which included granting Visa status to those coming into the US to compete. With competitive gaming growing in national popularity, even ESPN 2 aired Blizzard’s Heroes of the Storm Heroes of the Dorm finals live back in April, the sport has more eyes than ever on it. And with that attention also comes a measure of scrutiny.More Than a Game, a documentary by Thomas Hewett and Jack Abbot.What used to be a group of players crowded around an arcade machine in the back of a New York arcade competing for cash prizes, has turned into a series of multimillion dollar world-wide events. Some of the best esports players easily make six figures in a year, with a very few even earning over one million dollars. Hao, a player from China, brought in $1,112,280.99 in 2014 just from playing in competitive DOTA matches. There’s a lot of money to be made in this world, and that ups the ante for players to make sure they are on the top of their game.While the ESL is still working out the specifics, players are already voicing their concerns about how those with legitimate, doctors prescribed doses of Adderall and other drugs will effect their ability to compete in tournaments. Jemmillion, who questions the ESL’s decision, worries how they will handle prescribed medications, “The even bigger issue is telling a player who has a prescription from a doctor and medically needs to take the medication, that they aren’t allowed to compete, because they took it. This is an issue that begins to fall heavily into the whole “fairness and equality” aspect. “Schmidt wanted to assure both players and spectators that the ESL is making sure every case will be examined with care. He cites that they will be following practices established in more traditional sports leagues, and will alter their exemption list accordingly. They are working with the World Anti Doping Agency, and Germany’s own National Anti Doping Agentur, to keep to a high standards and practices.It’s a sticky situation, regardless. While it may seem easy to compare a drug like Adderall to HGH, they really do produce two very different effects on the body. Some people honestly need Adderall in their daily lives to function, but a controlled substance taken without a prescription is illegal in most countries, and the ESL is within their right to take action against players they feel are abusing a drug.last_img read more

Canadian” who is bi-racial, according to CDC estimates though the actual number of cases reported to the CDC is much lower: Not all strains will make you sick but the type that do can cause diarrhea urinary tract infections respiratory problems fever vomiting and other issues The investigation has not confirmed which foods at Chipotle might be the culprit but samples are being tested by authorities The strain has also not been reported How does it spread When people get sick from E coli it’s usually because they get very tiny amounts of human or animal feces in their mouth “Unfortunately this happens more often than we would like to think about” the CDC says There are certain foods that more commonly carry the bacteria like soft cheeses raw milk and unpasteurized apple cider Eating undercooked meat could cause an infection or eating contaminated food like lettuce or other items that could have been contaminated The CDC also notes that some people have been infected by contaminated water like by drinking lake water Who should be checked in this outbreak Health authorities are asking people in the area who have symptoms of the illness to consult a physician especially if they visited a Chipotle recently "Anyone who thinks they may have become ill from eating at a Chipotle restaurant in the past three weeks should consult their healthcare provider" said Washington State epidemiologist Dr Scott Lindquist in a statement "The elderly and very young children are more likely to become severely ill from this kind of E coli infection" What has Chipotle done Chipotle has closed its restaurants in both states and it will reopen those 43 spots when the investigation declares it safe Chipotle spokesman Chris Arnold said that safety is a top concern for the company "We immediately closed all of our restaurants in the area out of an abundance of caution even though the vast majority of these restaurants have no reported problems" he said The company is not closing other restaurants because there has been no indication as of now that the issue is in other states Has this happened before to Chipotle It has Though E coli has not been linked to the restaurant before cases of norovirus and Salmonella have been How can restaurants become contaminated There are so many different ways that foodborne pathogens can spread in the food system Meat can be contaminated during slaughter fruits and veggies could be washed with contaminated water and unwashed hands or surfaces can aid in the spread at various points in the process If investigators can trace the bacteria to a particular food that can be helpful in better understanding how the bacteria was introduced How can I prevent infection As always wash your hands thoroughlyespecially after using the bathroom changing diapers coming in contact with animals and handling food the CDC says Make sure your meat is thoroughly cooked avoid raw milk try not to swallow water when swimming in lakes or pools and make sure food preparation areas are very clean Contact us at editors@timecomRepublican presumptive nominee Donald Trump doubled down on a larger theme of his presidential campaign in a speech Wednesday arguing that the American economy once an engine of prosperity is in precipitous decline “The real wages for our workers have not been raised for eighteen years” he said repeating a familiar lament about job destruction open borders and stagnating incomes Trump’s strategy is essentially the same as Mitt Romney’s in 2012 The idea is to appeal to struggling voters’ feelings of economic malaiseand then to ask them implicitly or otherwise to make the decision: Are you better off today under a Democratic administration’s leadership that you would be with a Republican at the helm To millions of Americans particularly the white working-class voters who make up Trump’s base it’s an effective appeal Many voters have indeed watched their economic prospects wither in the past two decades as the forces of globalization automation and outsourcing have destroyed and dismantled traditional jobs In the twenty-seven years since 1989 real median household income in the US has increased a piddling 07% Between 2006 and 2014 it has declined nearly 7% But there’s a problem with Trump’s argument If you control for demographic changesBaby Boomers retiring an influx of young Millennial workers etcthe macroeconomy is not only improving but real wages have been increasing for years According to a new study from the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco real wage growth has averaged about 24% in the past two years In 2015 alone full-time workers saw wages increase 35% above inflationnearly double the rate of wage increases in 2010 Average wage increases have also ticked up regularly month by month since January 2010 according to the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta All this puts Trump’s rival presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in a better position Since launching her campaign last spring Clinton has run on the promise that she would protect and expand President Obama’s economic policy platform It makes her sales job easier that those policies not only appear to be working but that many Americans are feeling it According to a new Federal Reserves report on the Economic Well-Being of US Households in 2015 nearly 70 percent of Americans now say theyre "doing okay" or "living comfortably" Just 185 percent say theyre "worse off" Those numbers while not quite stellar mark a major improvement from 2013 when the same study asking the same questions found that nearly 40% of Americans reported that they were struggling economically Read next: How The Election Will Really Affect Your Investments One reason for the disconnect between Trump’s gloomy statistics about declining wages and Americans’ slightly sunnier outlook is a muddiness in the way we measure economic prosperity If you look at realie inflation-adjustedmedian income of American households Trump’s assessment of American workers’ stagnating wages appears right on But that’s not comparing apples to apples As fertility rates have fallen and as its become more common to live alone American households have shrunk by roughly 34% since the late 90s So comparing a household of two people to a household of four doesn’t necessarily give you a meaningful window into relative prosperity After all a four-person household earning the equivalent of $60000 in 1989 is not necessarily better off than a two-person household earning $45000 in 2016 Yet if you compare the two as static data points it would appear as if household incomes are declining Comparing real household income also doesnt take in account other quirks of American demographics such as the aging population of Baby Boomers Members of that generation have long enjoyed the highest salaries so when the oldest among them began retiring in 2008and swapped those pretty paychecks for pensionsthey artificially skewed income downward The same thing happened when the large Millennial generation those born in the early 1980s entered the job market for the first time As nearly all young people do they secured relatively low entry-level salaries which had the effect of skewing averaging income down In other words according to the San Francisco Federal Reserve report median household income is decliningbut that’s not a fair measure of Americans’ relative prosperity A better measure would be to look at real incomes of Americans on an individual basis According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis most individual Americans real income grew 19% from February to December 2013 In 2014 they grew another 3% and last year they jumped another 4% The average American today makes 13% more than in 1989 and that number has been climbing steadily since the end of the Great Recession The Millennial generation born between the early 80s and the mid-1990s has done even better According to a June analysis by the economist Robert Shapiro between 2009 and 2012 young people saw their incomes tick up 32% Between 2013 and 2014 they rose another 43% Members of Generation X who saw their incomes drop in the recession have seen average 23% increases between 2013 and 2014 The youngest among the Baby Boomer setthe youngest who have not yet retiredsaw the biggest hit during the recession losing more than 1% of income on average but have since rebounded by a half a percent That’s not to say that today’s economy is all sunshine and unicorns GDP growth is sluggish productivity is falling the markets are skittish and while Americans have seen their wages increase they’ve seen their expenses balloon too The cost of child care is now almost double what it was in 1986 the cost of health care is increasing by roughly 5% per year and people are getting into ever more debt Which is perhaps one reason that Clinton’s stump speech still sounds a cautionary note In the same breath that she commits herself to expanding Obama’s successful economic policies she often adds that they have not done enoughthat there’s more work to be done "I respect the fear the anxiety even the anger that a lot of people are feeling because the advance of globalization and technology has really replaced or undermined the future for many jobs" Clinton told the Washington Post in an interview this week She added that many Americans “are looking for somebody who will explain in a way they will accept whats happened” In this election both presumptive candidates’ explanationsand their solutionsare markedly different Clinton generally offers a wonky account of the shifting global economy and the changing nature of jobs in the future and suggests an equally wonky set of incremental policy provisions Trump is less delicate He blames “bad trade deals” stupid people in government and immigration and then serves up a solution notably hard to pin down with numbers and graphs “We are going to make America rich again We are going to make America safe again” he said concluding his speech Wednesday “We are going to make America great again great again for everyone” The election won’t be decided by these reports but rather by which of those two visions of the economy feels most right to voters Contact us at editors@timecomMichael Erwin Dahl 42 of
