first_imgSINGAPORE – Asian markets have bounced back from their retreat after the report of strong preliminary manufacturing data in Japan.KEEPING SCORE: Japan’s Nikkei 225 index jumped 0.5 per cent to 22,130.30 as a private survey suggested a recovery in manufacturing in October. The Shanghai Composite index, which closed more than 2 per cent lower on Tuesday, jumped 1.5 per cent to 2,634.50 and Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index surged 0.9 per cent to 25,565.27. The Kospi in South Korea picked up 0.2 per cent to 2,109.66. Australia’s S&P-ASX 200 lost 0.1 per cent to 5,839.10. Shares were higher across the region apart from in Thailand.JAPAN FACTORY OUTLOOK: A rise in the preliminary, or “flash” purchasing manager’s index to 53.1 in October from 52.5 the month before raised hopes that recent sluggishness in manufacturing demand may have been transient. A revival in new export orders, to 51.7, a seven-month high, was viewed as especially good news given concerns over China-U.S. trade tensions. Readings above 50 in the survey indicate expansion.ANALYST’S VIEWPOINT: “Following a rather disappointing slew of PMI data over the third quarter, Japan’s manufacturing sector looks set to start Q4 on a more upbeat note. The latest survey indicated stronger expansions in all the key barometers of macroeconomic health,” Joe Hayes, economist at IHS Markit, which compiles the survey, said in a commentary.WALL STREET: U.S. indexes fell on Tuesday following a broad-sell off on softening growth in China and fears that tariff hikes are beginning to hurt corporate earnings. The S&P 500 index suffered its fifth-straight loss, dropping 0.6 per cent to 2,740.69. The Dow Jones Industrial Average shed 0.5 per cent to 25,191.43 and the Nasdaq composite fell 0.4 per cent to 7,437.54. The Russell 2000 index of smaller-company stocks was 0.8 per cent lower at 1,526.59.U.S. EARNINGS: Sentiment was dampened as large U.S. companies kicked off a busy earnings week with warnings of rising costs related to tariffs. Heavy equipment maker Caterpillar posted a larger profit and revenue than expected in the third quarter. But the company said Trump’s taxes on imported steel were driving up production costs, causing its shares to slip 7.6 per cent to $118.98. 3M, the maker of Post-it notes and ceramic coatings, reported disappointing revenues and said it anticipates about $100 million in extra costs next year. That sent its shares tumbling 4.4 per cent. The U.S. and China are locked in a trade dispute over technology and have raised tariffs on billions of dollars of each other’s goods.ENERGY: Oil futures rose after the opening of a high-profile investment conference in Saudi Arabia, amid controversy surrounding the killing of a dissident journalist. Benchmark U.S. crude added 13 cents to $66.56 per barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract rose 7 cents to settle at $66.43 a barrel in New York. Brent crude, used to price international oils, gained 30 cents to $76.74 per barrel. In the previous session, it dropped $3.39 to $76.44 a barrel.CURRENCIES: The dollar strengthened to 112.56 yen from 112.42 yen on Tuesday.

Jeff and Jacqui Parker returned to their Clifford Street home in Port Dover on Monday afternoon to what sounds like a crime scene.There was a broken window, torn drapes, destroyed blinds, furniture knocked over, and blood over the floor and walls.The intruder was a female deer in good condition.Just after 2 p.m., an alert citizen parked across the street at Len’s Mill Store alerted police after spotting the doe breaking into the house through the living room window while the Parkers were away.The family and OPP soon arrived on scene and carefully entered the house.“It was standing there looking at us,” Jacqui Parker explained. “It stayed there for about an hour and a half, didn’t show an inclination to move.”They soon enlisted in the services of Chantal Theijn, founder of Hobbitstee Wildlife Rescue in Jarvis.Theijn came up with a game plan, which included closing blinds to prevent the deer from seeing an alternative getaway. Two officers formed a wall at the front door and, while holding a laundry rack, Theijn guided the animal out the patio door at the rear of the residence.“It worked out well,” said Theijn. “The deer was actually remarkably calm, it makes me wonder if somebody in the area is feeding deer because it didn’t seem to be too put out by my presence within the room.”“One of the OPP officers said ‘she’s talking to it, she’s a deer whisperer’,” Parker laughed. “It must’ve worked.”Officers were able to track the animal as it safely made its way across Highway 6 and into a wooded area near Concession 2.“It’s very dangerous to scare a deer, they can literally scare themselves to death … so it was just really nice this deer managed to handle this in as stress-free a manner as possible, which will certainly benefit the recovery,” said Theijn.When the news hit social media, some guessed the doe was seeking a reprieve from dropping temperatures, but Theijn debunked that theory.“It’s more or less a deer finding itself in an unusual location and getting spooked,” said Theijn, adding these situations take place a couple times per year locally. “Deer are pretty much unaffected by this kind of weather. Right now, because it hasn’t been cold for an extended period of time, there’s plenty of food for them.”Theijn said the alert citizen making the call did the right thing by notifying OPP and residents finding themselves in a similar predicament should do the same.“Do not make these efforts yourself,” she continued. “Adult deer can injure you in horrible, horrible ways. Those nimbly little legs are extremely strong, those feet are very sharp and the injuries you can get as a result are dangerous. This is really a situation you have to understand how these animals move and what makes them move.”The Parkers spent the rest of the day sweeping up shards of glass and cleaning their furniture – a nuisance to be sure, but they were glad everything worked out. The family thanked both the OPP and Theijn for their efforts, as well as the citizen who notified police.“I was happy not to see any severe injuries,” Parker said. “With the amount of blood we saw, we didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t want it to have to be put down.”“The cats were traumatized but they showed up later, they were OK.”jrobinson@postmedia.com read more

In a tweet the travel company provider said the weather affected their “comms, substations and trams”.Elsewhere in the country, West Midlands Fire Service said it was called to three different houses affected by lightning, and in Cornwall and Devon the heavy downpours also caused flooding in parts.It was a different story for most of the South, which basked in a heatwave. A heatwave alert is triggered when the daily maximum temperature is expected to exceed the average by 5C (9F) for more than two consecutive days.  Even in the South East, the average September maximum is only 18.9C ( 66F) so the soaring temperatures are well beyond what is needed to trigger a heatwave.

first_imgBRIAN O’DRISCOLL HAS moved to nip World Cup 2015 speculation in the bud by declaring ‘one more year’ means just that.The Leinster centre, who has recovered from his back spasm and hopes to start Saturday’s Pro12 Final against Ulster, fronted his team’s press briefing at UCD today. O’Driscoll declared he had shot all talk of staying on after 2013/14 down during his interview on the Second Captain’s podcast.The IRFU announced last Thursday that the Dubliner had signed a one-year contract extension but, with the World Cup kicking off in England in September 2015, inevitable speculation linked a fit O’Driscoll to a final Webb Ellis tilt.He told TheScore.ie, “I’ve signed for one more year and, as far as I’m concerned, that will be that.”The 34-year-old said he was sick of answering the same questions about his future all season and added ‘you get sick of your own voice giving the same answers’.He added, “Once I was able to say what the season, definitively, was, it was a big relief because I know exactly what’s coming next year.”Asked if he was happy to be fit again, after missing the Amlin Cup Final, O’Driscoll remarked, “Genie, my sole focus right now is getting right for a Rabo Final. You work all season to get to this point and we’ve felt a fair bit of pain [losing league finals] over the last three seasons around the Saturday afternoon of this time of the year.“We want to put that right and though it isn’t technically a home venue for us, it is home.”With regard to Ulster being the home team for the final, Leinster manager Guy Easterby confirmed that Mark Anscombe’s men, who topped the league standings, did not seek to shift the Blues from their home dressing room.Forwards coach Jono Gibbes added it was “unlikely” that Sean O’Brien would feature in the Saturday clash with Ulster.It would be devastating if Leinster lost the Pro12 Final – Cian HealyUlster’s landmark season ‘all for nothing’ if final is lost, says Bestlast_img read more

first_imgDr Anna Ahimastos, a much-respected researcher working for Melbourne’s Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute, has admitted to making up data in a medical study.A member of the Australian Society for Medical Research, in 2010 Dr Ahimastos was named a ‘Tall Poppy’ – an Australian Institute of Policy and Science campaign which recognises scientific excellence.Dr Ahimastos has admitted fabricating research published in two major international medical journals – for the American Medical Association (JAMA) and the American Heart Association.A statement published in the journals said the Melbourne researcher was solely responsible for data collection and the integrity of the study, which showed that the blood pressure drugs Ramipril and Prilace alleviated pain in patients suffering from peripheral arterial disease.The paper based on the study was retracted after an internal analysis by Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute “revealed anomalies that triggered an investigation which resulted in an admission of fabricated results by Dr Ahimastos”.Institute spokesperson Dr Bronwyn Kingwell told reporters the organisation took action as soon as the fabrication came to light. “Dr Ahimastos admitted to fabricating records for some patients,” she said.“These actions compromised the overall findings of the study and so we moved quickly to correct the public record by retracting the relevant papers.”Dr Virginia Barbour, chair of the Committee on Publication Ethics, told the ABC that while corrections were common in academic journals, a full retraction of a paper was more rare.“If you talk to academics nowadays, there is a real publish-or-perish culture,” she said.“We do feel one of the problems is that authors are pressured to publish, and publish in very high journals.”Dr Barbour said there were cases of substantial misconduct where grants had to be handed back. Dr Ahimastos has resigned from her position at the National Centre of Research Excellence for Peripheral Arterial Disease.Source: ABC Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram After years of boggling the minds of Greek archaeologists, a 7,000-year-old bird-like statue has been put on display at the National Archaeological Museum in Athens as part of ‘The Unseen Museum’ exhibition. Referred to as the ‘7,000-year-old enigma’, the statue from the late Neolithic period is very unique. Standing at 36 centimetres, it is bigger than statues from the period which have rarely been found exceed 35 centimetres, and is carved out of hard rock, despite metal tools not being available at the time, rather than the more common soft stone. What also continues to puzzle archaeologists is the sex of the figure.“It could depict a human-like figure with a bird-like face, or a bird-like entity,” museum archaeologist Katya Manteli told Reuters.“The enigma has to do with [the fact] that we cannot identify with clarity its sex. It could be a pregnant figure but there are no breasts. On the other hand it lacks male organs so it is presented as an asexual figure.”Also unsure of its exact origins in Greece, experts have narrowed it down to the region of either Macedonia or Thessaly.The enigma has been put on display as part of a monthly exhibition showcasing artefacts from the museum’s closed storerooms each month, which has close to 200,000 antiquities hidden from public view on any given day.last_img read more

Passengers arrived at the other end of the building, where they quickly stripped off sweaters when they felt the humid Guanacaste heat.In 2009, Coriport S.A. was awarded a 20-year concession to design, construct and operate the new terminal (TT, Nov. 16, 2011). The concession also includes development and management of the existing terminal.Before the renovation, only eight international and two domestic airlines operated out of the cramped terminal, which only accommodated about 900 passengers at a time.Now, business looks good and Francisco Cordero, the airport’s general manager, said it’s only getting better as airlines wanting to open flights to Liberia continue submitting requests. Last month, Copa Airlines announced a new direct flight to Liberia from Panama. The added flights begin June 24 and will operate on Thursdays and Sundays.“With Copa Airline’s Panama flights, we can welcome all of South America to the Guanacaste region,” Cordero said. Two other airlines are in discussion with airport officials to open lines there before the end of the year.The new 23,000-meter terminal increases the airport’s capacity by 20 percent, and its staff by 100 new employees. Other new facets include a VIP lounge, a plethora of sparkling shops between four departure gates, decorative fountains, regional art and a special security check-in for passengers requiring private departures and arrivals.“We can only measure small aspects of the impact the airport is having on the region with the number of people we employ and how many travelers pass though,” Cordero said. “It’s impossible to quantify the direct return elsewhere, but it’s more than significant.”Fourteen airlines, including commercial and charters flights, service Liberia, and 10-15 flights depart daily. Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays are the busiest travel days. Facebook Commentslast_img read more
