The report, produced by a network of researchers from over 60 countries participating in an initiative known as Project Link, forecasts global economic growth at 2.4 per cent this year, down from 4 per cent in 2000. It blames this trend on retrenchment in major developed economies, noting that “the economy of the United States has been at the heart of the current weakness in the global economy.”As such, the report cautions that “the biggest downside risk for the global economic outlook is a deeper and more prolonged slowdown in the United States.” A recession in the US “would be transmitted to many other economies,” it warns.The report does not predict an impending recession in the US, but it notes that “growth for the first half of 2001 might well turn out to be flat.” The sharp constriction in the country’s economy is evident in statistics presented in the report, which show the growth rate dropping from 5 per cent in the second quarter of 2000 to 1 per cent by the end of that year.Introducing the report at a press conference today, Project Link founder Professor Lawrence Klein, a Nobel Laureate, said that for most of the 1990s, “the United States has been the prime mover for the world economy.” With the country’s economy now shrinking, he said Project Link experts had documented “the effect of the US slowdown on the rest of the world.”Looking to the future, Professor Klein predicted that the contraction of the US economy would not be protracted. “The slowdown will not last so long — the recovery might be gradual, but it doesn’t mean a long, drawn-out recession,” he said.Another Project Link participant, Professor Peter Pauly of the University of Toronto, said action was needed to determine the future course of the global economy. “All in all this is a challenging time after many years favourable signs all around, and it calls for quite decisive policy action to turn this from what might be a fairly prolonged growth reduction in the world economy into a short-lived experience,” he said. read more

How very TIFF of you premier.”Premier Dalton McGuinty punted the question to Finance Minister Dwight Duncan, who agreed that the MPAC employee convention in Toronto was a bad idea.“I thought it was kind of a boneheaded thing to do,” Duncan told the legislature.“I don’t understand it. It’s not a good use of money.”MPAC defended the meeting, saying it needed to bring employees together to talk about major changes planned over the next four years that will save the agency about $20 million.The total cost of the event was $170,000, including a suburban hotel for fewer than 100 employees and a return flight for 30 workers from northern Ontario, said MPAC chair Dan Mathieson.“We consulted some leading change experts and they said the best way was to get everyone in a room and just lay it all out,” Mathieson said in an interview.“We looked at the cost of doing it on a regional basis and it wasn’t much of a savings because we would still have to move people around.”As for the Lego blocks, Mathieson said MPAC will be supporting Habitat for Humanity and employees will bring their three Lego pieces together to build a house, which will eventually be turned over to a family that gets a real home built by volunteers for the charitable group.A frustrated Duncan said MPAC is operated by the municipalities and the province really has no authority over it, and suggested the government would look at privatizing the agency.“The whole MPAC construct, where I appoint members based on the recommendations of (municipalities), where we have two members, this is not acceptable,” he said.“We’re going to have a long, hard look at the future of MPAC because Teranet is running much better now the way it’s structured.”Teranet is a private company that was given a 50-year contract to run Ontario’s electronic land registry system in 2010.The New Democrats criticized Duncan’s talk about privatizing MPAC, saying that kind of policy-on-the-fly from the Liberals never works.“They got caught like a deer in the headlights with this and now they’re throwing solutions up against the wall to see what’s going to stick,” said NDP Leader Andrea Horwath.“It’s that kind of back-of-the-envelope decision making that has gotten this government into trouble time and time again.”A 2010 report from Auditor General James McCarter criticized MPAC for staff travel and hospitality expenses that “appeared excessive or otherwise inappropriate,” including such things as Taylor Made golf clubs, Nintendo consoles and iPods. McCarter also found one out of every eight property assessments was more than 20 per cent higher or lower than actual sale price, and said homes that were supposed to be assessed at least once every 12 years would, at best, be evaluated once in 18 years.The Tories say MPAC is just another example to add to the list of Liberal failings that also include scandals at the Ornge air ambulance service and eHealth Ontario. read more

If early reports turn out to be accurate, Markelle Fultz is headed to the Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers traded the third pick in this year’s draft and a protected first round pick in either the 2018 or 2019 draft to the Boston Celtics. It’s a mammoth deal for both teams, and it has ramifications for the long-term outlooks of both. But lost in the commotion of assets changing hands and the deal’s implications on other big-ticket trades are the particulars about the player at the heart of the deal: Fultz himself.Playing in the Pacific Northwest on a nontournament team (and missing a chunk of time because of injury) made Fultz one of the most anonymous presumptive No. 1 picks in living memory. Just about every argument about the Washington Huskies guard is phrased in the subjunctive — a theoretical commodity more than a concrete set of skills. But dig down into what actually makes his game so good and it becomes obvious in a hurry that Fultz is a monster.Fultz has been billed as a pick-and-roll playmaker, which is true but vague. He doesn’t sit up high and find long, surprising passing lanes like James Harden does, nor does he feint and jab on a defense until it cedes ground like Chris Paul does. Fultz’s game is built around his jumper and his handle. He’s a strong shooter off the dribble and a strong enough dribbler to operate in tight spaces and get to the rim, where he’s an excellent finisher. This means defenses have to crowd him wherever he is on the floor, whether it’s 25 feet from the rim or having turned the corner on a pick and roll. And if a defense sends help, he’s a willing passer to the open man, even if that means a 40-foot, cross-court pass.The Huskies scored 109 points per 100 plays1Per Synergy Sports Technology when Fultz passed out the pick-and-roll, including 115 points per 100 on passes to spot-up shooters. To get a sense of how much the team relied on Fultz, consider those numbers in their full context. On spot-up jumpers that weren’t set up by a Fultz pick-and-roll or taken by Fultz himself (101 points per 100 plays), the Huskies managed just 82 points per 100 plays. That’s dreadful. That would have ranked 333rd out of 351 D-I schools. But Fultz was able to draw so much attention and create such good shots for his teammates that they went from one of the worst-shooting teams in the country to one of the best when he set them up.Not just any player commands the sort of defensive attention Fultz saw — even when he is by far the best player on his team. And what makes Fultz special is how good he is shooting off the dribble in traffic. On all pull-up jumpers, he scored 102 points per 100 plays, which is already very good. But when he was working out of the pick and roll, that number shot up to 118 points per 100 plays, as Fultz took advantage of the little bit of daylight created by the screen to get a slightly better look or to a better spot on the floor.Having a god-tier pull-up jumper is an increasingly critical skill for NBA guards, but so is finishing at the rim. Being a genuine threat on the drive is the reason the pick-and-roll offense works — it’s what makes James Harden and Russell Westbrook nightmares for opponents and what powers the LeBron Offense in Cleveland. And Fultz scored 130 points per 100 plays when going to the rim out of pick-and-roll plays. He has a tight (though not exactly dazzling) handle — aided by a nice little hesitation/head-fake move that freezes defenders who have to respect that pullup — and he uses it to get into the lane at will.All that said, the most spectacular offense in the league can’t do much for you if you’re giving up points at the other end. The Huskies were abysmal on the defensive end — they ranked 250th of 351 D-I men’s teams in defensive SRS — and Fultz’s personal numbers aren’t much better. He ranked in the bottom third of all D-I men’s players while defending all but one shot type, according to Synergy. But the defense Fultz plays in the NBA will be much different, mainly because the Huskies spent a lot of time in zone, and that asks players to do very different things to contest shots and deny space than pro-style defenses. But defense should still be a concern. Fultz has good physical tools — he averaged 1.6 steals and 1.2 blocks per game — and he was actually quite good the few times he was isolated in man-on-man situations, but his attention away from the ball will need the same improvements as most rookies.Fultz is a top overall prospect because he’s very, very good at things that are fundamental to the pro game — pick-and-roll playmaking, pull-up shooting, finishing at the rim. He has fewer jaw-dropping highlights as fellow prospects Lonzo Ball or De’Aaron Fox do (though he does have a few); but he has fewer holes in his game, as well. If there’s one thing that could unravel his game as a pro, it would be his shot not translating. It’s not exactly the same species of skepticism as the concern trolling over Ball’s shooting form, but there’s at least some reason to wonder if Fultz will be as lights-out from deep in the NBA. His range doesn’t extend far beyond the college line, and his release is on the slow side. Just as concerning, he shot 64.9 percent on foul shots, which ESPN Insider’s Kevin Pelton pointed out is a slightly better predictor of NBA 3-point shooting ability than college 3-point percentage on its own — and Fultz wasn’t overwhelming enough from 3 (41.3 percent) to make up for the free throws.But the way Fultz had to manufacture his offense should also be taken into account: He practically never had an open shot he didn’t create himself. He scored 116 points per 100 plays coming off of screens, but that was largely because of the same things that make him good in pick and rolls, not effective screens. Fultz’s Washington teammates didn’t set great screens, but this is an area where he needs to improve as well. If Fultz is going to play off the ball in the NBA he’ll have to improve his feel for how to angle his runs to get the screener between the defender and the spot where he wants to catch the ball.This of course leads back to the question of how Fultz will fit in with the Sixers. Given that early reports suggest forward Ben Simmons, last year’s No. 1 overall pick, will play a de facto point guard role for Philadelphia, an ideal fit for Fultz might be as a sort of über-Bradley Beal. John Wall handles the majority of playmaking for Washington, and Beal runs off of flare screens and other off-ball actions to free himself up for jumpers. But when Wall doesn’t have the ball, Beal runs a fair bit of pick and roll himself (despite being a weak dribbler) and generally controls the offense. A similar division of labor between Simmons and Fultz would make a lot of sense for Philly.But that’s deeper into specifics than we need to go for now. Teams tend to find ways to make things work with players who can dribble, pass and shoot. For now, Fultz is a perfect fit for a Philly roster that needs ballhandling and shooting, and just as important, a perfect fit for the directions the NBA game is headed. read more

Some twenty territories are represented in one place, showcasing a blend of literary genres, the mixing of heritages and a diversity of writing,” the organisers said in a statement.“This international meeting demonstrates the deep desire to better integrate the literature of the French Caribbean into the wider cultural and intellectual Caribbean family. This congress is first and foremost a vector for cooperation, questioning, affirming identity, sharing practices and know-how in literature and its different forms of expression,” they added.The two-day event will feature dialogues about writing and the organisers said a tribute will also be paid to Walcott, who won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1992.“What pleasure can be derived from writing about the region that sustains us? What do we want to say to readers in the region and elsewhere? These are the questions underlying the challenges taken up by Caribbean authors, and the aesthetic choices of each of these territories, although they are so geographically close to one another in the islands of the Caribbean and on the mainland.”The Writers Congress is being held under the theme ‘Writing for, in and about the Caribbean’ and the organisers said writers will visit schools on the island to share experiences with students. read more

first_imgPENSIONS. TAXES. FINANCING. Have I lost you already? These words do not often have you at ‘hello’.Everyone has to encounter these things at some point in their lives. Despite this, many people often do not know where to begin. A survey conducted by Red C Research last year found that just 30 per cent of Irish consumers understand basic financial concepts.Everybody has a relationship with money. Knowing more about earning it, holding on to it and making it stretch further is usually an essential part of achieving many of the ambitions and dreams we harbour for ourselves and our families.Basic financial and money management skillsEducation in basic financial and money management skills needs to start young, in homes and in schools. Of course, parents are the first and most important teachers, but it’s an important role of government to help the provision of the necessary education in schools.In today’s financially complex world, young people should be fully equipped to handle money matters as soon as they need to deal independently with their finances, so that they can make the best decisions right from the start. People work very hard for the money they earn. They may have even invested time and resources in further education to develop their career and boost their earning potential – indeed this kind of investment is something that we are encouraged to make.If we put so much effort into earning money, it is clearly worthwhile investing in financial education to ensure we make the most of it. However, although money can be a gateway to many positive things, it also brings pressures. Mental health issues, depression and suicide are prevalent in our society, with financial matters of one kind or another very often a serious contributing factor.Money does not equal happinessOne feature of the post Celtic Tiger era has been a period of reflection by many on their relationship with money and the relevant importance of it compared to what brings a true happiness – our relationships with our family, friends and with ourselves. By promoting financial awareness and money management to children from a young age, we need to be sure that we are not inadvertently encouraging children to equate the accumulation of money with happiness or their own sense of self-worth.Young people should leave school financially literate. Whatever they go on to do, they will always need to deal with financial issues. We must ensure that we provide them with a solid base for being able to deal with the financial complexities of the modern world. By this I don’t mean that they should be well-versed with complex derivatives and other esoteric financial instruments. But they should understand the fundamentals; how pensions work, how to read a payslip and deal with personal taxes, how to choose and take out a loan – and the sometimes overlooked aspect of how to pay it back!Understanding the basicsGetting to grips with the fundamentals also provides a solid platform for handling more advanced information in adulthood. Teaching the basics of financial literacy should also help them to determine later in life when it is a good idea to take average financial risk with money – effective money management and financial planning is not just about matching your expenditure against your income and setting funds aside in a deposit account to cover you for a rainy day, as important as these of course are.Internationally there has been increasing awareness of a need for developing financial education across all society. The European Commission supports and encourages work within Member States for the provision of financial education amongst its citizens and a National Steering Group on Financial Education was established in Ireland at the end of 2006.In England financial education is to be put on the school curriculum from September 2014. This has become all the more important in the current economic climate where money matters dominate. Although it would be simplistic to suggest that financial education as a compulsory part of the school curriculum would have helped to avert Ireland’s financial crisis, it is arguable that a better grounding in money matters may have helped at an individual level, equipping people to better protect themselves against some of the worst effects of the downturn.Your first encounter with financial products is when you buy themOften people first learn about financial products when they are already at the point of purchase, where the person or company providing the information is generally also trying to sell something. For example, many people are first introduced to mortgage products when they are in their local bank trying to purchase their first home. Or their introduction to pensions begins when they contact a pension company to start setting aside funds for retirement.Worse, people may learn more about these financial products only after they find themselves in financial difficulty and come to realise the true implications of not having been fully educated about the product they purchased – such as when mortgage repayments become unaffordable, or when a pension has not provided the expected level of retirement income. It is crucial to have some ability in distinguishing a true advisor from a mere salesperson – this distinction is not always obvious.Enhanced understanding only leads to better decision making. I want my daughter to be fully equipped to understand the impact that money will have on her life and to ensure that she has the best possible relationship with money that she can. We owe it to all young people to arm them with knowledge for the better management of financial affairs – both for the benefit of themselves and society as a whole.Sinead Doherty is founder and Managing Partner of Tax Consultancy and Accounting firm, Fenero.

first_imgSoy growers are urging labor union and port management to resume negotiations and avoid disruptions of Gulf and East Coast port operations—which could impact agricultural and food product exports to main marketsThe American Soybean Association (ASA) joined several agriculture and global trade stakeholders in a letter last week, encouraging the International Longshore Association and the United States Maritime Alliance to resume negotiations as soon as possible.“Reaching a contract extension before the current contract expires will provide supply chain stakeholders with the certainty they need for their operations,” groups state in the letter. “Supply chain disruptions arising out of previous contract negotiations are well documented. Such disruptions can have enormous adverse economic impacts.”The 2015 dispute during negotiations threatened supply chain continuity for countless U.S. agricultural commodities, causing extreme congestion, delays and uncertainty, in addition to costing the agriculture industry millions of dollars for every week that the negotiations lasted.The groups also stated that even a threat of disruption can have a negative economic impact, as some industries will implement contingency plans this spring to ensure shipment isn’t slowed.“We recognize the important issues both parties must resolve during negotiations,” the state in the letter. “However, we believe those issues can only be resolved by negotiations. When talks are put on hold it causes great uncertainty, shifts in logistical plans and even economic damage.”Click here to read the entire letter.last_img read more

first_img Physicists add amplifier to quantum communication toolbox Practically speaking, single photon detection has not been something pursued very heavily at the wavelengths used for telecommunication signals. Part of the problem is that performance of single photon detectors are rather constrained at such long wavelengths. But, says Robert Thew, a scientist at the University of Geneva, the time is coming when single photon detectors may be needed in telecommunications. Citation: Single photon detectors for telecommunications wavelengths (2008, August 29) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2008-08-photon-detectors-telecommunications-wavelengths.html Explore furthercenter_img This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. “Up until now,” Thew tells PhysOrg.com, “classical communication has not done too badly with the detectors available now. But now they are getting pushed to the limit as optical communications explodes. Single photon detectors are becoming more important.”In order to improve the ability of a single photon detector to work with signals with telecommunications wavelengths (about 1550 nanometers), Thew and his colleagues at the University of Geneva, Zbinden and Gisin, suggest a scheme that involves upconverting these signals using a tunable pump source to a silicon detector. Their work is published in Applied Physics Letters: “Tunable upconversion photon detector.”“Photon detection in general is a key enabling field of research,” Thew explains. “And it is improving all the time. Photon detection is used for quantum cryptography and computing as well as for metrology and telecommunications. Our experiment is one that shows how telecom wavelength photons can be converted into the regime of silicon detectors.”These Silicon detectors, Thew explains, are useful because they offer a high temporal resolution. While experiments have been done showing upconversion of silicon detectors, this Geneva group has added another element: tunability.Usually, upconversion experiments do not feature a simple and practical method of controlling wavelengths. “These systems are dedicated at well-defined wavelengths,” Thew says. “This works well for some things, but sometimes you want to be able to change the wavelength. That is what we are working on.” Of those that do seek for tunability, they can rely on temperature control to change the wavelength or use the nonlinear phase matching scheme with different poling periods. Thew and his peers decided to make a tunable photon detector using laser tuning.“All upconversion schemes rely on mixing two lasers to generate a third with the desired wavelength by a nonlinear process,” Thew explains. “Our practicality comes from the choice of components. The precision comes from the choice of silicon detector. The tunability comes from being able to tune one of these lasers that are initially mixed.” Not only is this detector tunable, but it is also compact and more cost efficient than similar photon detectors. And, as telecommunications continues to advance, this could be a good way to continue the improvements seen in the last few years. “[F]aster communication systems necessarily have to work with lower intensities (fewer photons) and it is here that the single photon detection technologies will be needed,” Thew explains. “This offers practicality and low cost. The idea is that we keep simplicity, but gain the advantage of tuning wavelengths.”“Things are improving all the time in this area of study,” Thew continues. “Having tunable photon detectors would be helpful for many experiments and applications. We are taking advantage of being able to do this with a silicon detector. What we have done offers a huge advantage for this type of approach.”Copyright 2007 PhysOrg.com. All rights reserved.

first_imgOctober 20, 2017 6 min read Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Register Now » Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. If you haven’t heard or paid attention to the phenomenum that is cryptocurrency, then it’s time to take notice.Related: From $100 Million to Broke to Betting It All on CryptocurrenciesFirst, if it’s still a foreign concept for you, cryptocurrency is any of a number of digital currencies that can be used for online transactions without intermediaries such as banks. Without banks, cryptocurrency can be traded and used for commerce between two or more people without the oversight — and expense — of those intermediaries.The underlying power behind cryptocurrency is blockchain technology, which is as difficult to understand as it is to explain. There are certainly in-depth descriptions of how blockchains function available, but in general, each is built on a publicly distributed digital ledger aimed at ensuring the security and transparency of the transaction for all involved.Cryptocurrency was first launched in 2009 as an experiment limited to a handful of adopters. However, It has grown into a legitimate and credible global currency and payment option, as countries like Singapore, India, China and Russia have moved to adopt their own digital versions of their currencies.This adoption — and acknowledgement by the world’s major governments of cryptocurrencies’ legitimacy — is fueling their general adoption. In Japan alone, which has has a population of 127 million, cryptocurrencies are considered a legal payment method, and purchases are currently not taxed.By and large, the most popular and widely used example of cryptocurrency is Bitcoin, the first decentralized cryptocurrency. Recently, the market cap of Bitcoin actually eclipsed that of Paypal — when the price for Bitcoin was hovering at $3,000.More recently? Bitcoin closed at over $5,000.More impressive is the fact that Bitcoin represents only 40 percent of the total digital currency market and only 1 percent of gold’s current total market capitalization. Those scenarios illustrate the kind of potential this market actually has.Related: 6 Cryptocurrencies You Should Know About (and None of Them Are Bitcoin)Why should small businesses care now?So long as cryptocurrency continues to be a legitimate and accepted form of payment, exchange, businesses will have no choice but to adopt methods for accepting it. Moreover, new digital currencies are being created all the time: There are currently over 1,000 in circulation — so understanding and managing them may be an even bigger challenge.While small companies will naturally be slow to adopt, big corporations are getting on board. IBM, Wal,art and Nestl? have made investments in blockchain technologies to help optimize their existing processes and satisfy the growing demand. Even the online retail giant Overstock is embracing the technology.And supporting companies are also cashing in. One company that has been profiting from the surge in demand is NVIDIA, which said its sales were up by 54 percent this year due to increase in demand for its graphic cards used in cryptocurrency mining.Another development is that companies embracing the blockchain technology are finding ways to capitalize on this trend. Kik, a chat app that found tremendous success when it launched but then struggled against industry behemoths like Facebook, recently raised $125 million through initial coin offering (ICO). This represented the introduction and launch of a new cryptocurrency that has the prospect of being traded — and hence has value — outside the app ecosystem.Why should small businesses care about tomorrow?What is clear is that cryptocurrency is not going anywhere. A recent study by Lendedu.com demonstrated that awareness of digital currencies, specifically bitcoin, is at an all-time high. Adoption, however, continues to lag. Key findings of the survey included:78.5 percent of Americans have heard of BitcoinOf that aware group:11 percent (Americans) believed that owning Bitcoin is illegal in the United States48 percent were unsure of Bitcoin’s legalityOnly 14 percent had ever owned Bitcoin40 percent were open to the idea of using Bitcoin in the future34 percent were undecided about buying Bitcoin in the futureThe study also showed a very high correlation between age and adoption, with older respondents being far less likely than younger ones to own or invest in Bitcoin in the future. With that said, as more millennials enter the workforce and are willing to adopt and use new technologies, the adoption of cryptocurrency technology is sure to rise. In fact, millennials already seem to be keeping Bitcoin for a rainy day.Room for growthCryptocurrencies are less than a decade old, and in reality have only come into the mainstream in the past few year. There are challenges, such as China’s blocking access to cryptocurrency exchanges recently (making an impact considering that it’s got the world’s largest population and second largest economy). Also, a multitude of data breaches at major companies have occurred, creating more doubts about security and privacy in consumers’ minds.Despite these downsides, many in the industry itself see plenty of room for growth: As part of my research on cryptocurrency, I spoke with Nuno Correia, CEO of Utrust, a payment platform for cryptocurrency buyers, for this article. And Correia tempered those downside events in cryptocurrencies I’ve described with some optimism of his own.Now, of course,the CEO of a cryptocurrency platform is going to have plenty of reason to promote cryptocurrencies, but because Correia has been an innovator in the industry for a few years, I saw him as having a lot of credibility when he told me he’s bullish on that industry. “Companies focused on cryptocurrencies, specifically those that can take advantage of the early developments and be part of the systems that provide and encourages cryptocurrency transactions, will have the greatest first mover advantage,” Correia said about entrepreneurs’ growing role in the industry.Related: Why You Can’t Afford to Ignore Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain AnymoreStill, education among entrepreneurs and consumers alike is critical, Correia emphasized: “As consumers realize that the goal of this technology is to ensure that anyone can benefit from these transactions, irrespective of where they live, economic condition or level of education, it will become universally recognized and used,” he said.He may be right: After all, cryptocurrency started off as an “experiment.” And look at how far it’s come.What are your thoughts on digital currencies and their business applications?
