Tired of endless sewage problems

first_imgBusinessman Hendrik Johannes Robinson is fed up with the stinky situation in Alfred Street. For over two weeks now, Mr Robinson has been battling overflowing sewage right next to his business.Two manholes on the pavement no longer have covers (after the steel was stolen), leaving deep, gaping holes just waiting for some unsuspecting person to step into. This is very dangerous, as a child could disappear down the holes and an adult could easily break a leg.Last week, uThukela workers fixed the overflowing sewage problem, but the very next day it was back. Sewage is overflowing and causing a terrible stink. WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite “This is not hygienic, not to mention bad for business. I will definitely lose customers as a result,” says a furious Mr Robinson.He adds that, especially after lunch when the weather gets warmer, the stink is unbearable.The manhole covers were stolen a while ago and have not been replaced. Fearing that customers may inadvertently get hurt, Mr Robinson and other businessmen in the area came up with the idea of using tyres as a makeshift measure to fill the holes.At the time of going to press, uThukela had not commented on the matter.last_img read more

FHFA Watchdog Voices Concerns over NonBank Servicers

first_img As scrutiny continues to grow in the servicing arena, the watchdog for the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) says it has concerns about non-bank servicers working with GSE loans.In a report released Tuesday, the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) for FHFA outlined its concerns over the growth of companies like Ocwen and Nationstar, who have ratcheted up their presence in the special servicing segment as banks, burdened by capital requirements, look to unload some of their mortgage servicing rights (MSR) portfolios.Out of the 30 largest servicers, FHFA OIG says that non-banks held a 17 percent share of mortgage market as of the end of 2013, representing nearly $1.7 trillion. As a result, the report says these non-bank companies may have taken on more volume than they can handle.”The rise in nonbank special servicers has been accompanied by consumer complaints, lawsuits, and other regulatory actions as the servicers’ workload outstrips their processing capacity,” the report said.FHFA OIG also expressed doubt as to whether non-banks operating without the same guidelines as traditional servicers would be able to weather an economic downturn as their stock of largely non-performing and at-risk loans worsens.In addition, OIG expressed concerns about the practice of non-banks using short-term financing to buy MSRs for loans that may only pay out after time, saying, “This practice can jeopardize the companies’ operations and also the Enterprises’ timely payment guarantees and reputation for loans they back.”While concluding that FHFA and the GSEs—who approve transfers of their loans to non-bank special servicers—have “responded well to specific problems,” OIG recommended that the agency establish a framework for oversight to handle general non-bank risks and issue guidance on a risk management process.In a response, FHFA agreed with the inspector’s suggestions, pledging to develop a guidance on risk management by December 1.OIG isn’t the first regulator to warn of potential problems at non-bank servicers. Earlier this year, Benjamin Lawsky, superintendent of New York’s Department of Financial Services, set his sights on Ocwen and later Nationstar, requesting information about their growth, practices, and treatment of consumers. The two companies are among the biggest non-banks in the servicing field, putting a focus on non-performing loans.Lawsky also revealed in May that his department plans to dig into the relationships some special servicers have with their affiliates, alleging “affiliated companies have every incentive to provide low-quality services for high fees, and they appear in some cases to be doing so.”Both Ocwen and Nationstar have pledged to work with Lawsky’s office to resolve any concerns.

Vanuatu aims to quadruple visitor numbers in next decade

first_imgVanuatu is aiming to quadruple the number of visitors to the country over the next 10 years.The ambitious goal is the responsibility of the country’s airline, airports authority and tourism office, and could deliver more than a billion US dollars to national coffers annually by 2030.Dominic Godfrey reports on their plans.  Listen duration 5′ :31″ TRANSCRIPTIn 2017, tourism was 46.1 percent of GDP, or US$362 million, and the 110-thousand visitors brought in US$254-million, over 60 percent of the country’s foreign export earnings.Now, the Charlot Salwai government wants to get numbers to 450-thousand by 2030.Vanuatu’s tourism chief executive Adela Issachar Aru says they’ve received a US$1.8-million marketing kick-start for the challenge.“As part of our tourism market development plan, within the next five years, there should be an increase in support for destination marketing at a value of 6.5 million US dollars per year up until 2023.”Having spent US$32.5-million and with projected arrivals at 165-thousand Ms Issachar Aru says they will then rely on public-private co-funding to aggressively market the country.She says the breakdown for 2030 is 300-thousand tourists and 150-thousand business and transit visitors.The Tourism Office markets the destination but it’s Air Vanuatu’s job to get people there.Its chief executive Derek Nice last month announced the purchase of four new Airbus jets with four options, which could triple the size of the airline.“If we’re going to continue to grow, we can’t do that by only operating the aircraft we have now and we also can’t grow by only offering the level of service that we do now in terms of the numbers of flights we’re offering to each of our existing destinations, let alone take on the opportunities that we see for service to new markets as well.”The new jets are smaller than the existing Boeing 737 but can fly as far and will open the country up to new opportunities.Derek Nice says it’s a substantial investment.The four aircraft have a list purchase price of around US$350-million. Taking the four options would double that.“We intend to finance most of the acquisition cost through leasing companies and banks and we’ll fund a lot of the growth through working capital.”More flights means more pressure on airport infrastructure.Vanuatu’s airports authority is expanding three key fields with a multi-million dollar package from the World Bank.The capital’s Bauerfield upgrade is due for completion in June, and Pekoa on Santo in the north, and White Grass in Tanna in the south in the next few years.The authority’s chief executive Jason Rakau says Santo’s airport will be the country’s second gateway and will be able to take large long-haul aircraft like Vila’s.“Pekoa airport to the north already is catering to international flights and Air Vanuatu currently already operates flights into that airport. Santo in particular in terms of tourism has quite a lot of potential and also the northern parts of the country, there’s some very beautiful scenery up there and there’s a lot of attractions that could potentially grow tourism in the north as well.”Mr Rakau says the long-term goal is to have wide-body aircraft flying directly from Pacific rim destinations in North America and Asia by 2030.He says it’s among Air Vanuatu’s plans and there are ongoing negotiations with foreign airlines.Tanna will open up the south to tourists from Australia and New Caledonia which has just overtaken New Zealand as the second largest source country.New focus markets are South-East Asia, China, Europe and the US.To cater for these new visitors, the country needs to quadruple the number of available beds in the next decade and Tourism’s Adela Issachar Aru says financial incentives are being developed to attract international chains.“To start developing packages and investment incentives to be able to entice the potential foreign direct investor into Vanuatu re-looking at our accommodation segment specifically. At this point in time Vanuatu hosts about 3000 beds.”Around 12,000 will be needed by 2030.Ms Issachar Aru says the flow on effect from tourism will be felt across the country as the agricultural sector gears up as well as associated goods and service providers.She says all government departments will play a part.Our correspondent Len Garae is in the capital Port Vila and says people are excited by the strategy.“Throughout the country. In the provinces even. People are building hotels and restaurants in the islands as well as in the rural areas of Efate. The government is calling on the communities in the rural areas to set up tourism development projects and handicraft centres, and this is to cater for this imminent arrival of increased numbers of tourists.”While the outlook is for sustained tourism growth, Vanuatu is rated the most susceptible nation on the planet to natural disaster with Cyclone Pam devastating the country in 2015.However, by spreading the tourism offering beyond the capital Port Vila and central Vanuatu, the country is planning a resilient pathway to cope with natural and climate change induced events.This is Dominic Godfrey.Source: Radio NZThe post Vanuatu aims to quadruple visitor numbers in next decade appeared first on Discover the South Pacific.Source: Bloglast_img read more

Report Ohio State considering naming Ryan Day head coachinwaitng

first_img— gene smith (@OSU_AD) September 23, 2018 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Sponsored By Connatix Ryan Day acquitted himself well in serving as Ohio State’s acting head coach through training camp and the Buckeyes’ first quarter of the season. He led No. 5 Ohio State to a 3-0 mark, and the program paid him an extra $487,000 for his efforts, according to the Columbus Dispatch.But the Buckeye brass was apparently so impressed by Day’s performance that the school is reportedly considering making Day’s ascension to the Ohio State head coaching chair more of a formal arrangement, as Ari Wasserman of The Athletic reported Saturday night the school is considering naming Day as the Buckeyes’ head coach-in-waiting.Ohio State has been consistently impressed with Day ever since he arrived in Columbus ahead of the 2017 season. Hired on the recommendation of Chip Kelly, he was brought to Columbus to fix the Buckeyes’ struggling downfield passing game. He boosted J.T. Barrett’s yards per attempt average from 6.7 to 8.2 in his one year working with him, and to date in 2018 Ohio State has displayed the best passing attack this side of Tuscaloosa. Dwayne Haskins is completing 72.5 percent of his throws for 9.78 yards per attempt with 11 touchdowns and one interception through four games, while backup Tate Martell is 13-of-14 for 154 yards with a touchdown.In January, Ohio State promoted Day from co-offensive coordinator to offensive coordinator while also handing him an unprecedented 3-year contract worth $1 million a year, both firsts in Buckeyes history. Such were the requirements after Day was pursued for the Mississippi State head job and the Tennessee Titans’ offensive coordinator job under former Buckeye Mike Vrabel.“Ryan is clearly a very talented coach who has been an outstanding addition to our program,” Urban Meyer said at the time. “He has been approached by other schools numerous times this off-season for coordinator and head coach opportunities, and by the National Football League for a coordinator opportunity. I am pleased that he has elected to continue to work on this staff and to lead, mentor and coach the terrific young men we have in this program.”And now, according to Wasserman, the Buckeyes are considering offering Day a carrot to remain in Columbus for years to come.Such such a move come to pass, it would be interesting for three reasons:First, the head-coach-in-waiting fad came and went around a decade ago, and there’s a reason no one has used it in a while — the arrangements usually ended in acrimony. The first and most famous arrangement was at Florida State, where Bobby Bowden had to be pushed out in order for Jimbo Fisher to take over. James Franklin was named head coach-in-waiting at Maryland, and took his first head job at Vanderbilt. Texas named Will Muschamp its head coach-in-waiting, he later became the head coach at Florida.Second, the fact that Ohio State is thinking about naming Day its head coach-in-waiting means, by necessity, Ohio State is thinking about the post-Urban Meyer era. Meyer is 73-8 at Ohio State, he’s only 54 years old, and his built Ohio State’s coaching staff and roster to be among the elite of the elite in the sport.To be sure, this all seems to be in the discussion phase, and nothing is in writing as of yet. Here’s how Wasserman described Ohio State’s thinking:After what Ohio State just went through with Meyer, you can bet the Buckeyes want him to stick around. Ohio State is recruiting at a high level, and it is one of a handful of teams that seemingly could win a national title every season. That Ohio State is thinking about Day isn’t an indication that will be done any time soon.But it’s impossible to view this report divorced from the context surrounding it. Meyer’s handling of the Zach Smith saga was a black eye on the public image of the entire university, and it’s going to hang around him — maybe in the periphery, maybe not — for as long as he remains at Ohio State. One has to wonder if the Ohio State brass viewed Day’s audition and thought they could have Meyer-like success without Meyer’s newfound baggage.Finally, it’s noteworthy that, if Ohio State is indeed thinking about the post-Meyer era, the Buckeye brass is willing to hitch its wagon to Day for the long term. The 39-year-old has zero head coaching experience outside of this month’s stint, and Ohio State seemingly has a deep bench of possible head coaching prospects with ties to the program and/or the state.Luke Fickell is a former Buckeye player, GA, position coach and coordinator, and he’s 4-0 in his second season as the head coach at Cincinnati.Matt Campbell became a star after knocking off No. 3 Oklahoma and No. 4 TCU at Iowa State last season. He’s just 38, has head coaching experience at Toledo and Iowa State, and is a native Ohioan who played at Mount Union and coached at the Mount, Bowling Green and Toledo.Jason Candle is also 38 years old, a native Ohioan, a former Mount Union player, and 23-8 as the head coach at Toledo.Heck, perhaps Vrabel would even consider leaving the NFL to be the head coach at his alma mater.And this says nothing of whom Ohio State could potentially snag on the open market.But none of those coaches are under contract at Ohio State like Day is, and Ohio State is clearly brainstorming ways to keep its current mojo going for as long as possible.As always, stay tuned to The Scoop for the latest.center_img Update: Ohio State AD Gene Smith addressed the report Sunday morning by not addressing it.“We obviously are appreciative of Coach Day’s great work, and hope he continues to be one of our offensive coordinators for a long time, but we are more than confident Coach Meyer will be our head coach for quite some time,” Smith said.We obviously are appreciative of Coach Day’s great work, and hope he continues to be one of our offensive coordinators for a long time, but we are more than confident Coach Meyer will be our head coach for quite some time.Thank youlast_img read more

Members of the Queer Songbook Orchestra meet to re

first_img Members of the Queer Songbook Orchestra meet to rehearse for their upcoming tour, in Toronto on Friday, June 8, 2018. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Christopher Katsarov TORONTO – When asked to name an LGBTQ music icon who influenced him, guitarist Thom Gill vaults over the usual favourites Madonna, Cher, Britney Spears and Liza Minnelli.For him, it’s Cape Breton jewel Rita MacNeil who handily tops the rest.Most Canadians probably wouldn’t regard the late Nova Scotia singer’s working-class anthems as a rallying cry for the queer community, but Gill finds something unique in MacNeil. She was a feminist who embraced comradery, overcame a troubled past, and presided over the Men of the Deep, a choral of ex-miners, he asserts.“It’s so queer to me,” Gill says of her career. “She’s definitely a diva.”And that’s why he asked MacNeil’s family for permission to sing one of her songs on “Anthems & Icons,” an album of covers by the Queer Songbook Orchestra released earlier this month. The 12-member collective handpicked work from jazz master Duke Ellington, k.d. lang, Anne Murray and others, with the goal of framing the songs through a queer lens.The album comes with a booklet containing stories that contextualize each song, outlining either a backstory about its creation or sharing a memory from an LGBTQ person who was inspired by the piece.lang’s “Constant Craving” latches onto a fan’s memory of doggedly calling his local radio station to request the song after coming to terms with his own sexual identity in the early 1990s.The assortment of LGBTQ experiences celebrate generations of Canadians who didn’t always have an opportunity to speak openly about their queerness without fear of repercussions.Artistic director Shaun Brodie, a classically trained trumpet player, came up with the idea several years ago when he found himself at a crossroads, unsure whether to pursue a music career or journalism. He merged the two passions into the Queer Songbook concept and began enlisting musician friends he met through working with artists that included the New Pornographers, Basia Bulat and Dan Mangan.The idea blossomed into a colossal undertaking that keeps getting more ambitious.Their multi-faceted live shows are layered with musical performances, individuals telling stories about growing up in — and out — of the closet, and reflections on how the power of song played an integral role in scoring the highs and lows of life.Carole Pope, Lorraine Segato and July Talk vocalist Leah Fay have been among the guest stars in concert.“For people in the queer community there’s a revelation in hearing other people’s stories which are kind of a variation on your own experience,” Brodie says of the impact.“It’s familiar but it’s like you’re hearing things for the first time.”Brodie, 39, grew up in Regina during the early 1990s, when he says positive LGBTQ representation was practically non-existent. He remembers gay slurs on the playground, the height of the HIV/AIDS epidemic and little else that offered much hope for the future.Only CBC-TV’s sketch comedy series “The Kids in the Hall” presented him with “a lifeline” he could identify with. The five comic leads defied gender expectations, and comedian Scott Thompson’s portrayal of gay characters reassured him there was “a bigger world out there.”“Things have changed and there’s a lot more reference points and positive things about queer life,” Brodie says of today’s climate.But he’s says there’s still plenty of room for progress.When the Queer Songbook Orchestra takes their show on the road later this year, Brodie will address what he feels he missed growing up outside of a major Canadian metropolis. The tour will skirt queer hubs Montreal and Toronto in favour of Regina and other smaller cities including Whitehorse, St. John’s, and Sydney, N.S.“I think it’s important for a project like this to go into smaller places because… it can help to foster community,” he says.“I don’t know how common it is to have an expressly queer project come through town, reach out to people in the community to work with and try to present it with warmth and intimacy. I don’t think it’s happening a lot.”The organizers will also recruit local LGBTQ people to get involved in the show. Some might be invited to perform readings of personal anecdotes submitted to the Queer Songbook Orchestra website.“We’re out there sort of foraging for the stories,” Brodie says. “I want this to continue evolving and growing.”Even as the leader of the Queer Songbook Orchestra, the artistic director says he’s often surprised by the perspectives others bring to the project. He was forced to reconsider MacNeil’s canon when Gill brought the group his jazz arrangement of “We’ll Reach the Sky Tonight,” originally an upbeat composition.Gill’s version emphasizes a gentleness and sorrow, and Brodie said its lushness suggests parallels between struggles of the queer community and MacNeil’s unwavering dedication to uniting the common people.He hopes audiences consider all of those nuances as they digest what the Queer Songbook Orchestra brings to the conversation amid a social climate that seems more divided than ever.“For all the ways the community is fractured,” he said, “I hope we’ve had a moment where we felt like we have something in common. That we’re in this together.”Follow @dfriend on Twitter. by David Friend, The Canadian Press Posted Jun 20, 2018 11:17 am PDT Last Updated Jun 21, 2018 at 9:07 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emailcenter_img Rita MacNeil as a queer icon?

Barbaros sailing off the Turkish coast

first_imgThe Turkish seismic vessel Barbaros was some 30 nautical miles off the coast of Turkey on Tuesday afternoon after leaving Famagusta port on Monday.According to the Turkish Cypriot media, the Barbaros asked for permit to leave Famagusta port at around 3.30pm on Monday “stating that its route would be the open seas”.Reports said the captain of the ship was expected to decide at which port in Turkey the Barbaros would dock. As of Tuesday afternoon it had not yet docked at any port, according to a website that monitors marine traffic.On Monday, the Turkish side announced that the Barbaros was due to leave – a day after the ENI—KOGAS drillship Sapiem10000 left the island’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ).Turkish Cypriot ‘foreign minister’ Ozdil Nami said the Turkish Cypriot side was reciprocating for the departure of the Sapiem by sending the Barbaros back to Turkey because they did not want to give the Greek Cypriot side “any excuse” not to return to the negotiating table.The Barbaros had been anchored off Famagusta since December 30 when the first navigational telex (NAVTEX), issued in October, expired, and the vessel had carried out seismic explorations in the island’s EEZ during a two-month period. In response, the Greek Cypriot side withdrew from the talks.A second NAVTEX was issued from January 6 until April 6 but the Barbaros did not move from Famagusta port during the three months.The expiry of the second NAVTEX, plus the fact that ENI-KOGAS has stopped drilling and sent the Sapiem to Italy for maintenance, which is  expected to take four or five months, has opened a window of opportunity for the resumption of the stalled negotiations.UN Special Adviser for Cyprus Espen Barth Eide will be on the island on from April 6-8 to meet the two leaders separately and to possibly announce a date for the resumption of talks.  You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoIcePopMan Notices A Strange Hole In This Lake, So He Gets A Drone, Flies It Inside And Captures ThisIcePopUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.
