An internal enquiry was set up and it came to light that Puneet and Vijay had collected the money from market but didn’t deposit into company’s bank account. Upon asking them about where the money has gone, they first denied but next day deposited some amount into company’s bank account. As we asked them about rest of money, they denied paying back,” said Sanjay Kumar Sharma, trans shipment manager at the company. Sharma further said that both the employees then stopped coming to the company and even didn’t pick any calls further. Meanwhile, police have registered a case under relevant sections of IPC against the two accused persons.
Rabat – Earlier this week, King Mohammed VI dispelled concerns fanned by the Malagasy Christian community that new Moroccan investments in Madagascar would exclusively to the benefit of the country’s Muslim community.“The king [in Moroccan culture] is the Commander of Believers, believers of all religions,” the monarch said in an en exclusive interview with the Malagasy press – the first of its kind in eleven years.The Moroccan leader also said the new investments did not represent an attempt to proselytize Islam in the East African country, where Muslims are in the minority. “I want to dispel any ambiguity” the rumors claiming that these projects only benefit the Muslim community are totally false,” Mohammed VI said. “These projects are, of course, for the whole population.”Morocco’s royal companies, combined under the Societe Nationale d’Investissement (SNI), have several active development projects in foreign countries as part of the king’s South-South cooperation model for African economic growth.“We give and share, without arrogance or sense of colonization,” he said. “It is to realize this model of inter-African cooperation that I frequently move around in the continent – the continent where I feel good.”Mohammed VI has spent a large part of the past two months travelling to East African countries – Rwanda, Ethiopia and Tanzania, to name a few – fostering private and public sector partnerships to ramp up support for Morocco’s reinstitution in the African Union (AU).“All countries…particularly in East Africa, are unanimous in supporting the reintegration of Morocco to the African Union,” the monarch, who announced his country’s return to the continental organization after over 40 years of absence, added.The king clarified that he had not specified political preconditions for investing in fellow African countries, but welcomed the gratitude he received once cooperation agreements and contracts were signed.Last week, the Moroccan firm Marshica Med Ltd. signed an agreement with the Malagasy government to oversee the rehabilitation of the 700-kilometer Canal des Pangalanes.In addition, Agriculture and Fisheries Minister Aziz Akhannouch confirmed that an educational exchange program between Morocco and Madagascar on agricultural marketing techniques would begin in the next few months.
Rabat – After the Moroccan Christians emerged out of the shadows, claiming their basic civil and legitimate rights as Moroccan citizens of Christian faith; the National Coordination of Moroccan-Christian issued a communique publicly condemning an anti-Christian article published by a Moroccan tabloid. This time, the coordination went a step further, publishing an unprecedented press release denouncing an article written by Mustapha Al Alaoui, chief editor of the Al Ousboue tabloid, published under the title “Do Christians in Morocco ignore why ISIS was founded?”“For the journalist Mustapha Alaoui to write in his article that ‘Isis was created for the Christians of Morocco, and that they are to be killed and buried in the outskirts of the Christian cemeteries of Morocco,’ is very grave and unworthy of a newspaper that calls itself national and independent,” reads the communiqué. For the National Coordination of Moroccan Christians, the article offends the tolerant identity of Morocco, which “is deploying all its forces to strengthen democracy and consolidate human rights, including the freedom of belief which we seek, with the help of other parties and the Moroccan society, to establish constitutionally.” The Coordination sees Al Aloui’s article as a call for violence against their community, deeming it as “an apology of terrorism, a crime which is punishable by Moroccan law.” In fact, if the journalist does not issue an apology for his hateful article, the coordination is threatening legal recourse, suing the tabloid for hate speech and inciting violence and apology of terrorism.“We, as Moroccan Christians, have been graced by His Majesty King Mohammed VI’s kindness and protection … as an emir of all the believers with all their differences, their doctrines and their religions. This confirms our freedom of belief guaranteed by the Moroccan Constitution, and the commitments of Morocco regarding the application of international human rights laws.”If Al Alaoui’s intention was to create controversy with his shockingly titled article, the journalist aimed well. Using words such as “infidels,” “apostates” and “opportunists,” Al Alaoui didn’t leave much room for guessing his opinion about Moroccan-Christians. “Isis was founded because of Muslims who dared defy Islamic teachings and principles,” the journalist wrote, “so what do you expect when a Moroccan whose mother is named Fatima and father Mohammed publicly announces his apostasy?” The answer according to Al Alaoui is money. “He who abandons his elders faith to convert to another religion, is nothing but an opportunist covetous of the funds used by christian churches’ to seduce Muslims.” Not only Moroccan-Christian are a “threat to national security” according to Al Alaoui, they also portray the degree of corruption of the Moroccan government, including the religious authorities who are “silenced by the money of the churches.”
“As you know, I have chosen ‘sustainable development and global prosperity’ as one of my four main focus areas during the 66th session,” said Mr. Al-Nasser, addressing the Assembly’s second committee.“In this context, I am committed to according the most vulnerable countries the much needed attention they deserve.”He called for full support for the least developed countries (LDCs) as they strive to implement their Istanbul Programme of Action designed to help them spur development and economic growth, and the landlocked developing countries (LLDCs), which have their own Almaty Programme of Action that reaffirms their right of access to and from the sea.The other group of countries in need of special attention is the small island developing States (SIDS), which require continued support to implement the Mauritius Strategy adopted in 2005 to advance sustainable development.“For this we need the full commitment of development partners, particularly for realizing the agreed commitments of support,” said Mr. Al-Nasser. 20 October 2011General Assembly President Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser today urged the United Nations committee that focuses on economic and financial issues to find “creative and innovative” ways of tackling the problems of the countries with special development needs.
collaboration.jpg 4. MicromanagementEnterprises with controlled company cultures are characterized by strict monitoring of all business activities, rigid hierarchy, and excessive bureaucracy. According to the controlled culture approach, the most value is given to highly structured and organized teams, which tend to follow rules to the letter. Thus, employees don’t have the freedom to make decisions, which becomes a serious obstacle to collaboration.Solution: To enable effective collaboration, an enterprise should give up the micromanaging approach and allow more freedom to employees. This will increase their initiative and improve creative thinking. Managers can still outline best practices and guidelines for collaboration without interfering into the process. Also, they can track the performance of employees with the help of a project management tool. The lower the level of micromanagement, the more freedom employees have to share their points of view regardless of their positions. There will be room for experiment, failure and learning from mistakes, thinking together, valuing each other’s perspective and contributions for new ideas to emerge. 3. The lack of collaboration supportMost enterprises recognize only individual performance. So, it’s quite difficult to motivate employees to collaborate in organizations where successful teamwork can’t be rewarded. Employees will look at collaboration as time that could be better spent on improving their individual performances.Solution: Enterprises should create a supportive environment that would encourage employees to communicate and share information in way that facilitates how they perform their working tasks. For example, enterprises should consider distributing bonuses to all team members for the successful completion of a project. Four Strategic ChallengesAt a strategic level, an enterprise can face these challenges: 2. Misinterpretation of collaborationThe terms collaboration and cooperation are often confused, but there is an important difference between them. When cooperating, people work together and exchange information and resources in support of each other’s goals. In its turn, collaboration presupposes working together towards a shared goal. It results in creating something new not from individual effort but a collective team effort.Solution: An enterprise must be sure to weave the correct understanding of collaboration into its , and organize related initiatives in line with this strategy. For example, an enterprise should support interaction, idea sharing, and debate across the company, which leads to collaborative ways of working. Mitel, Avaya Merger on Tap? Beth Schultz August 20, 2019 On the heels of word that Avaya is close to reaching acquisition deal, the focus turns to Mitel and a reported bid of $20 per share. Advanced collaboration software, including mixed reality, can help to eliminate emotional disconnection between people as it creates communication experiences similar to in-person communications. For example, mixed reality offers a stronger presence effect than video conferencing alone, providing vivid and memorable experiences to users. Also, mixed reality can help to create an image of a room in the company’s remote office and provide an image of an employee visiting this office. See All in Unified Communications & Collaboration » Avaya Still on the Block, Resolution May Come Soon Beth Schultz August 14, 2019 As the company plugs away on cloud sales, CEO Jim Chirico looks to wrap up its review of strategic alternatives in the next 30 days. 2. Difficulty in adapting to a new technologyAdoption of a new technology can be challenging, both for new employees unfamiliar with the collaboration tools in use at the enterprise or when rolling out new tools for company-wide use. Ineffective work and decreased productivity are results in either case.Solution: Leaders are powerful instruments in facilitating change. So, senior management can be the first to use a new collaboration tool. If their experience is positive, they can show this tool in action to other employees and promote its use across the company. Also, they can arrange training and invite consultants who will explain to employees everything they need to know about the tool. As for quick adoption of tools by newcomers, training materials should be available for them, for example, in the company’s knowledge base. Three Technology ChallengesTechnological obstacles to collaboration are as follows: 1. A disconnected workforceThe disconnection of people in big companies can be of two types:Geographical disconnection — As organizations grow, collaboration becomes difficult to manage as workloads expand and employees are scattered across multiple departments. Moreover, there can be teams working from home or remote offices. In such a situation, departments and teams become estranged and the likelihood for effective collaboration and communication falls off dramatically. This, in turn, can lead to slow decision-making and other issues.Emotional disconnection — Geographically dispersed employees may lack personal contact when communicating with colleagues from different offices or countries, and this can worsen communication. The thing is that accurate conveying of attitudes and feelings is important for communication, which is impossible without non-verbal signs like gestures and facial expressions. And non-verbal communication is next to impossible to reach without real interaction.Solution: Providing the right technology to support each employee regardless of location is crucial to effective collaboration. Usually, cloud-based collaboration groupware is the right choice for providing connectivity among dispersed teams and creating a seamless working environment. Collaboration tools allow employees to share files, co-author documents, create, and find content quickly and easily. 1. Lack of a company-wide collaboration strategyMany enterprises don’t consider collaboration to be an organization-wide cultural value. In such organizations, senior management nurtures collaboration occasionally, such as for work on company-wide projects.Solution: An enterprise should treat collaboration as one of its major directions and develop a collaboration strategy accordingly. It should nurture collaboration at the company-wide level and encourage each employee to learn how to collaborate effectively. For example, employees should know how to ask for input from others, provide constructive feedback, use negotiation skills, and reach a consensus. To ensure effective collaboration, it’s crucial for strategy to come before technology. An enterprise needs to analyze its collaboration needs, decide on and implement policies aimed at improving collaboration, and support a culture of collaboration. And only after that will an enterprise be able to decide which collaboration technology and tools best align with the developed strategy. On the way to effective collaboration, an enterprise can face various challenges both in strategic and technological terms. What follows is a look at some of the most common ones and suggestions for solving them. Tick, Tock, the Clock Is Running for Avaya Zeus Kerravala September 06, 2019 Lots of speculation surrounds Avaya’s future, but mum’s still the word on a final decision. Justifying Workspace Applications: Time to Up the Game Marty Parker September 10, 2019 Communication technology vendors and their value-adding partners must take the lead in defining business justifications for their collaboration and workspace applications. Log in or register to post comments ConclusionThe best way to tackle enterprise challenges is starting from the strategic side. An enterprise should create and support collaboration culture across the company, encourage teamwork and train employees on effective ways of collaboration. In terms of technology, an integrated collaborative environment can solve enterprise collaboration challenges. This environment can be achieved with the help of such tools as an intranet. To enable intranet-driven collaboration for both internal users (including employees working remotely) and external users like partners and vendors, enterprises should opt for a cloud collaboration solution.Tags:News & Viewscollaboration strategyUnified Communications & CollaborationBest PracticesNews & ViewsUser Adoption & TrainingVendor Perspective Articles You Might Like Avaya Continues Mulling Next-Step Options Beth Schultz September 12, 2019 In a brief update, company said strategic alternative review process continues, gave no indication of new expectations for wrapping it up. 3. Disconnection of collaboration toolsDisconnection of tools can be caused by several reasons:Different tools — It’s a common situation when different teams or departments in an enterprise use different collaboration tools. This makes it harder for employees to find the information they need to get work done, as there’s no transparency through an enterprise’s processes. For example, a production team in a manufacturing company can’t freely access CRM to check a contract’s terms, as CRM is a department-specific system accessible only by the sales team. Surely, the production team can have a copy of the contract but it can’t track changes that can be done to it and needs the sales team to notify them in case of any changes.Wrong tools — An enterprise can try to introduce a new collaboration tool without prior analyzing whether its UI is convenient and features aren’t superfluous or complex to grasp. As a result, user adoption can be low.Duplicate tools — Employees can use duplicate tools for the same tasks, which also leads to inconsistency of collaboration tools across the enterprise. For example, employees can use Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Skype for Business, and Slack for messaging at the same time. If they have many contacts in all of them, sooner or later they can feel that they type a message every 30 seconds. What’s more, similar or not, too many tools cause many distractions, negatively affecting employees’ productivity.Solution: The best way to enable consistency of collaboration tools across an enterprise is to opt for a flexible and scalable tool that will comprise content management (including a centralized knowledge base), project management, and communication features. All these features can be found in an intranet that can unite employees across the enterprise. The intranet’s ability to easily integrate with other systems can help to connect all enterprise systems (CRM, ERP, HR, etc.) and create a unified collaboration space.
Speaking to reporters about the Council’s work programme for the month, Ambassador Gunter Pleuger of Germany said 11 Foreign Ministers, along with the Permanent Representatives of Syria, Guinea and Angola, were expected to be on hand to hear Mr. Powell’s extensive briefing, which will be accompanied by an audio-visual presentation.Council members would then be invited to comment, Ambassador Pleuger said, noting that they will also address a request received from the Permanent Representative of Iraq to participate in the meeting. Provided that the Council decides to grant that request at Germany’s proposal, the Iraqi representative would be invited to sit at the Council table and to make a statement at the end of the meeting, he added.Highlighting a few other meetings of the Council, Ambassador Pleuger noted that Michael Steiner, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Kosovo, is scheduled to give a briefing on Thursday and will be accompanied by Deputy Prime Minister Nebojsa Covic of Yugoslavia.On 13 February, the Council is slated to hear its monthly briefing by the UN Secretariat on the situation in the Middle East, and later that day hold an open briefing on the peacekeeping and human rights situation in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.Sanctions, meanwhile, will be the topic of a public meeting scheduled for 25 February, during which the Swedish State Secretary is expected to present the results of the Stockholm process, which dealt with the question of “smart sanctions,” Ambassador Pleuger said.Asked about future briefings by the heads of the UN weapons inspections regime for Iraq, Hans Blix and Mohamed ElBaradei, Ambassador Pleuger said the trip this weekend to Baghdad by the two would be “a very important one.” The report they are to give on 14 February would also be vital. In the end, the Council will decide whether the inspections had been successful or whether there was a material breach, he added.As to when the issue of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea might come before the Council, Ambassador Pleuger said that negotiations were ongoing to settle the problem diplomatically and he had not wished to disturb those. The Council had not been seized of that matter so far. When it came before the Council, it would come through the Governing Board of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which had not yet made a report to the Council. When that happens, the Council would take a decision about putting it on the agenda. Video of Ambassador Gunter Pleuger’s press conference
The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry have spoken of their late mother’s commitment to “doing good while no one is watching”, as they presented 20 young people with a Legacy Award in her honour.Prince Harry said: “She achieved a lot by shining a spotlight, but she worked just as hard when the cameras were gone.”Our mother once said that if we all play our part in making our children feel valued, the result will be tremendous. This result was tremendous.” Princess Diana with sons Prince Harry, centre, and Prince William, right, on a water ride at Thorpe Park in April 1993Credit:Cassidy and Leigh / Rex Features Prince Harry and Prince William present a Legacy Award in their mother’s honourCredit:Paul Grover for the Telegraph The inaugural Diana Legacy Awards ceremony on ThursdayCredit:Paul Grover for The Telegraph Harry told some of the recipients: “I cannot believe how young you all are, most of you are still at school. When you get some spare time on your hands you’re saving lives and inspiring people.”You should be absolutely proud of what you’ve started and what you’ve achieved, you’re still in your teenage years – don’t stop now guys.” Speaking at St James’s Palace, where the awards ceremony was held, William said: “This summer marks 20 years since our mother died and she achieved so much in her life, from helping to shatter the stigma around Aids, to fighting to ban landmines and supporting the homeless – she touched the lives of millions.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

The Duke added of Diana, Princess of Wales: “The truth is, though, that she was taken at only 36, just slightly older than I am today.”Of course, we can never know what our mother would have gone on to do. But in one sense Harry and I feel that our mother lives on in the countless acts of compassion and bravery that she inspires in others.” The Legacy Awards are designed to celebrate children and teenagers who demonstrate qualities of kindness, compassion and service. With his brother beside him, Prince William told the 20 young recipients that Diana had achieved so much in her life, from helping to fight the stigma around Aids to supporting the homeless.The royal brothers were making their first joint appearance at an event run by the Diana Award, established to promote their mother’s belief in the positive power of young people.The 20 young winners, who come from the UK, United States, Canada, India, Belize and the United Arab Emirates, were recognised for their efforts creating positive social change in their communities and countries.
Father Themis Adamopoulos is back on Australian soil for a national tour to help raise funds for global charity Paradise 4 Kids, with proceeds going straight into the mission he established in Sierra Leone, and says he has been taken by the community’s philanthropy.It seems today we have kicked God out of everything in Australia, God is no longer a reality.“So far we’ve been very successful, people are being very generous,” he told Neos Kosmos. So far events have been held in Melbourne and Sydney, with the priest set to make his way around the country to Brisbane, Adelaide, and Perth.He planned to arrive earlier, but with the recent mudslide and onset of floods in Sierra Leone’s capital that resulted in the death of more than 1,000 locals, he chose to postpone his travels to stay back and assist with much needed relief. This is of course not the first disaster to strike Sierra Leone, having endured what few others have. When Father Themis first arrived in Sierra Leone in 2008, the country was overcoming a brutal and horrific 12-year Civil War, and then in 2014 was struck by an epidemic of Ebola.“Five hundred medical personnel who were helping people, were killed by the virus. We fought through it and we tried to educate our people that were coming to our churches about wearing gloves, washing your hands, about not touching anybody. My rule was, and that’s why I didn’t get it, I didn’t touch anybody. It’s not airborne, it’s fluid, any body fluid – sweat, tears. You touch it, you’re going to be dead in 14 days,” he said of the incurable virus. Over the year’s the mission has managed to come a long way. He recalls starting with nothing “except the grace of our Lord Jesus” with the first Orthodox church run out of a kitchen in the residence they were leasing.From three or four attendees, they have expanded to include three churches, two schools with some 2,000 pupils enrolled, a teacher’s college and they are just putting the finishing touches on two orphanages and a clinic.Meanwhile without access to social welfare such as that available in Australia, Fr Themis says the role of the church is very important. “If you are a single mother, there’s no social welfare; if you’re an elderly person, forget about it, there’s no aged pension. That gap is filled by the church, which we are proud to say we are apart of, filling the vacuum of the inability of the government to be able to do that. It tries, I can’t say it doesn’t, it tries – it doesn’t have the resources,” he explains. “So far I think we’ve helped thousands. Today for example we would have fed about 600 kids a hot meal, we are sheltering disabled people under our roof. So you know, God has smiled upon us.”Aside from his philanthropy in Sierra Leone, Father Themis is rather well known for his colourful past. Formerly a member of a rock band, he was a Marxist and Atheist and against any religion whatsoever.“I just felt that the whole concept of God was a myth and it was just a way the churches were exploiting people, so I was a complete radical,” he reveals.Then around the age of 23, he had what he describes as an unexpected “mystical experience” that led to his conversion. “If you had told me back when I was 22 that ‘one day you’re going to be a Greek Orthodox priest’ I would have vomited,” he says.“My conversion taught me that what I was doing before was wrong and that I had sinned. So part of my repentance and trying to redeem myself in the eyes of God, is to work in Africa and to, as it were, make up for the years that I had squandered as a young man from God. “Now I understand things differently and that there is a purpose to our life here on Earth and the purpose is to help others, and in that way of helping one another and by loving God, there would be no wars. But unfortunately it seems today we have kicked God out of everything in Australia, God is no longer a reality,” which Fr Themis admits is a growing concern for him that seems to be worsening every time he returns Down Under, and adds “I’m worried for Australia’s moral standards.”He sites a number of reasons for the movement away from religion including the counterculture of the 1960s – which he admits to being apart of, the nation’s drug culture, the rise of technology, and the influence of mass media which he says is largely left wing, with little choice for an alternative. “For example, if I was to go onto one of the main channels and they were to ask me about let’s say marriage equality, and I say ‘well, you know the bible is against two men or two women marrying’, they would say to me ‘oh you’re a homophobe!’ or ‘you are against equality’ or ‘you are a product of an ancient time’. Our attitude as a church is we love the gays, lesbians, transvestites, all the LGBTQI, we do, but we don’t love the action. But that’s what we Christians get now. We’ve become the minority in this country; we have become the maligned minority. Twenty years ago we were the voice of conscience,” he says.Fr Themis believes we are currently in the phase of a social experiment, which he likens to the philosophical method of deconstructionism where there are no absolute systems, the newer generations breaking down and challenging the value system of the past. “Now we are enlightened – so everything we thought to be real and true is now considered questionable. Everybody can believe whatever they want to believe as long as you don’t hurt anybody. That’s where we are; redefining ancient concepts of marriage, gender, of what it means to be a human being … and God has no part in it whatsoever.” Faced with the fierce marriage equality debate currently taking place across the country, it’s not one the Orthodox priest is keen to take part in, and says there are other more pressing issues we as a society should be concerned with.“I don’t see it as so crucial as I see that babies are dying everyday – 30,000 kids are dying today in Africa. The biggest experience in the world of a serious dysfunction is the fact that 3 billion people on the planet are living on two dollars a day, and 69 families control half the world’s money. That is the biggest scandal in the world today,” he says. “Now here in the west you have the luxury of redefining gender, you have the luxury of going into the intricacies of what gender means. Where I’m living we don’t have that leisure, we have people dying of hunger, people dying of Ebola, people dying of floods, and people having less than $2 a day. I see myself as a poverty warrior.”For more information on Paradise 4 Kids, the mission and how to donate, visit paradise4kids.org/ Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram

A Skyview High School student died from her injuries Tuesday after a Monday evening crash near Ridgefield.Kaitlin Miller, 17, was the passenger in a red 1999 Mercury Cougar that failed to stop at the intersection of Northeast 199th Street and 29th Avenue. The Mercury was southbound on 29th around 7:10 p.m. Monday when it went through the stop sign and was struck in the passenger’s side by an eastbound 2006 Volvo XC90, an SUV.The news shook the high school community, which held a vigil Tuesday night with prayers and flowers. A song dedicated to the teen was uploaded on YouTube.Firefighters with Clark County Fire & Rescue arrived to the crash site Monday evening to find both vehicles heavily damaged and Miller pinned in the car. A Life Flight helicopter was put on standby and later dismissed when the first ambulance arrived. Using the Jaws of Life, firefighters cut off the roof of the car and freed Miller.Monday night, Battalion Chief Tim Dawdy said Miller was in critical condition. The driver of the Mercury, Grace Chandler, 17, who will be entering her senior year at Skyview, was reportedly in serious condition.The driver of the Volvo, Geralyn Jaskey, 53, and her two passengers, Julia Ballo, 14, and Hanna Ballo, 16, all from Brush Prairie, were evaluated for injuries.
Staffing on the business side of the magazine is still being figured out. “The sales side has not been determined because they’re moving the business side under Elle,” said the spokesperson. “That’s going to take some time to figure out. It’s just editorial today.”Deborah Burns, chief brand officer of the previously two-title Luxury Design Group, will remain with the company. Elle Decor will be moved under the Elle Group.The magazine’s Web site, as it exists in the PointClickHome.com umbrella brand it shares with Elle Decor, will be discontinued as well.Eventually, the site will revert to the Elle Decor brand only. MetropolitanHome has a rate base of 550,000 with a shrinking newsstand presence and ad page count. While it represented a small percentage of circulation, newsstand has shrunk from about 9.5 percent to 7.6 percent, or to about 42,000 single-copy sales per ABC Publisher’s Statements. Year-to-datead pages shrank 33 percent to about 466 pages, per PIB.Hachette has been spending the year reorganizing its titles into new, brand-centric groups, most recently reconfiguring its Cycle World group. The Women’s and Auto brands were also reorganized. The shelter category has been especially brutal this year, and has just claimed another magazine. Hachette Filipacchi Media U.S. announced today that it will be closing Metropolitan Home. The December 2009 issue will be its last.Alain Lemarchand, president and CEO, made the announcement this morning in a release, which said that resources will be applied to Elle Decor instead. Lemarchand said Elle Decor is the ad-page leader in the U.S. When contacted, a spokesperson said Metropolitan Home was third in its category. So far, the editorial team has been hardest hit, with editor-in-chief Donna Warner and 12 other editorial staffers losing their jobs, according to the spokesperson.

Share Federal Funds Rate Federal Reserve Interest rates Janet Yellen 2014-09-09 Tory Barringer in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, News A new survey from the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco finds investors aren’t buying in to the central bank’s projections of interest rate increases in the coming years.In a study published Monday, analysts for the San Francisco Fed say their model—based on investor activity—forecasts a federal funds rate of 0.75 percent at the end of 2015 and 2.13 percent the following year.In their latest economic projections from June, the members of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) projected a median federal funds rate of 1 percent at year-end 2015 and 2.5 percent at the end of 2016.Based on their own modeling, the analysts say investors put the probability of the federal funds rate hitting the FOMC’s target next year at 31 percent, with 2016’s projected rate having a 27 percent probability.”Our analysis shows that, on balance, the public seems to expect more accommodative policy than FOMC participants,” the researchers conclude.The investor model also features a smaller range between the upper and lower forecasts than the predictions offered by Fed policymakers, “suggesting the public also may be less uncertain about their projections,” they add.The San Francisco Fed’s report comes one week before the FOMC announces its next economic policy move—and before Fed Chair Janet Yellen is scheduled to give her own hints at the central bank’s timeline.Yellen and many of her colleagues have stressed a slow, thoughtful approach so as not to disturb the economic recovery. However, the fact that investors apparently anticipate an even slower run-up in rates could indicate their failing optimism in the economy’s projected growth over the coming years.

It was no surprise that the fire near the Vassiliko cement factory on Monday began at night as combustible material in the area absorbed heat throughout the day, fire services chief Marcos Tragkolas said on Tuesday.Speaking at the House environmental committee that convened to discuss fire prevention, Tragkolas explained how before firefighters began using soil to try and obliterate the flames, they noticed quantities of spontaneously combustible renewable biofuel (RBF).The factory is located in the same area as the VTTV oil depot and an electricity authority (EAC) substation.The EAC has an agreement with the factory whereby they give it waste materials such as old electricity poles to burn using RBF.A statement by the fire services said investigations indicate RBF was present around the old electricity wooden poles and plastic material, thus making it highly likely to be the source of the fire and the reason the fire spread so quickly to the nearby flammable materials.A factory employee had reported that when he first noticed the fire, it was small, but become a full-scale blaze within seconds.“We are not surprised by the fact that the fire began at night as throughout the day, temperatures had gone incredibly high and the RBF was being used. Combined with the humidity and the winds in the area, it caused the fire to begin,” Tragkolas said.A spokesperson for Vassiliko was not immediately available for comment, but in earlier statements said the factory was working closely with authorities and that all staff were working under safe conditions.The fire services were notified at 10.35pm on Monday night that a fire had started in a pile of wood and rubber near the installations. It took until Tuesday lunchtime to bring the flames control and too eight fire trucks.According to the fire services, the fire broke out at an EAC storage area. North-easterly winds meant heavy smoke was blown in the direction of Limassol.The area is also the location of the Mari naval base blast in 2011 which killed 13 people and injured dozens more after 98 containers of munitions that had been stored for two-and-a-half years in the sun self-detonated.Though discussions for opening a fire station in the area had arisen since then, it has yet to be opened. Plans are underway to have it up and ready by 2019, fire services spokesman Andreas Kettis told the Cyprus Mail.“It has already been approved. Works will begin in 2018 and the plan is to have it operating by 2019. It will be staffed by 56 firefighters whose sole responsibility will be that area. They will not be called to other areas.”Speaking broadly on fire prevention, Tragkolas told MPs that he had been in touch with both the environmental committee and community leaders to further cooperate “for cases where the fire services sees some areas or properties at high fire risk.”The fire services have a duty to notify relevant authorities and recommend any solution, he added.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
