The city of Hamilton is considering the sale of the downtown property that Jackson Square sits on. City staff are hoping to get permission to negotiate with the mall’s owner, Yale Properties, about a potential sale at today’s meeting of the general issues committee.Yale Properties currently has 56 years left on its lease for the downtown property and is looking to add additional 50 years to the deal, but says they are open to talks about buying the property entirely. The mall’s owner says it needs to extend its lease to justify the recent and future renovations for Jackson Square.The city and Yale have been in talks for several months. According to a report last fall, Yale cited numerous problems with the building that required a complete overhaul, which in turn was an chance to redesign parts of the mall.The nearly 400,000 square foot mall spans two blocks along King St W between James and Bay street. In recent years Jackson Square has added the Anchor Bar and Nations Fresh Foods.Yale Properties says the renovations are long-term investments and need a longer lease term to spread the cost over a longer period.The GIC meeting will be held at 9:30 this morning.Editor’s Note: An earlier version of this post incorrectly stated the meeting start time as 9 o’clock. This has been corrected. read more

It has reports on 18 Prefeasibility Studies, 15 Feasibility studies, 31 projects in development, six new mines that have gone into production, 13 existing mines that are expanding, seven merger and acquisition announcements and many new appointments to new positions. The January 11 report covers 27 gold projects, 18 copper, 16 iron ore, 10 silver, six coal and uranium projects, five zinc, four projects on lead, three phosphate, potash, and rare earth projects, two molybdenum, mineral sands, and lithium, one project each for nickel, graphite, alumina, bauxite, aluminium, rutile, ilmenite and one polymetallic project.RUSAL has signed an agreement with the Republic of Guinea specifying details of the development of Dian-Dian, the world’s largest known bauxite deposit, with the company being the owner of rights to develop this project. According to the document signed, the project development will be divided into four phases. The first phase of the project, which is to be completed by the end of 2015, involves the development of a bauxite mine with a capacity of 3 Mt/y of bauxite. In addition, also by the end of 2015, RUSAL will complete a feasibility study of a project to increase the bauxite production at the mine up to 9 Mt/y, as well as a feasibility study for construction of an alumina refinery with an annual capacity of 1.2 Mt.Turquoise Hill Resources’s Oyu Tolgoi operation in Mongolia completed a seven-week commissioning of the mine’s ore-processing equipment the week of December 23. 2012. With the conclusion of the power purchase agreement on November 5, 2012, Oyu Tolgoi began the operation’s commissioning process. Oyu Tolgoi also was expected to begin processing first ore through the concentrator by year end, with first concentrate production to follow within one month. The commencement of commercial production is expected three to five months thereafter.Focus Minerals has completed a placement to Shandong Gold International Mining Corp Ltd, which doubles Focus’s market capitalisation and has been transacted at a significant premium to Focus’s current share price. Focus Minerals Chairman, Don Taig: “This is one of the largest mining deals for an emerging mid-tier Australian gold producer in recent times and underscores the importance of Australia-China mining interests.”Anglo American is selling its 70% interest in the Amapá iron ore operation in Brazil to Zamin Ferrous. Anglo American has transformed the operational performance of Amapá since acquisition in 2008, increasing production from 1.2 Mt in 2008 to 4.8 Mt in 2011. Zamin has completed a definitive feasibility study for its 18 Mtpa Valentines project in Uruguay with international consultants SNC Lavalin and Ausenco Sandwell. It has submitted its environmental impact statement to the Uruguayan regulatory authorities and expects to receive its license to commence construction for the project in late 2013. Valentines is targeting production in early 2016.MZI Resources has mandated two leading banks to finance its flagship Keysbrook mineral sands project in Western Australia, paving the way for construction to start in March next year, with plant commissioning in Q4 2013. The water licence has been granted and new plant location and preferred HMC transport route approved.Bumi plc has launched a major review of its  capex program. The mine plan is being reviewed against a backdrop of weak coal prices. Berau Coal was on track to meet 21 Mt output for 2012 – production expected to increase to 23 Mt in 2013. Nick von Schirnding, Chief Executive Officer: “Our near term strategy is very clear: to effect a separation from Bumi Resources and to maximise value in our operating subsidiary, Berau. We have taken immediate steps to mitigate the on-going impact of lower coal prices by adjusting the mine plan for Berau, targeting lower stripping ratios and reducing hauling distances. Expansion must be profitable and sustainable and we believe that the conditions are not right for the $288 million proposed overland conveyor and power plant projects at Binungan to proceed at this juncture.”Northland Resources’ first concentrate has been transported by rail on the Malmbanan railway, from Pitkäjärvi to the Port of Narvik. The company started ramping up production of high-grade, high-quality iron ore concentrate on December 4, 2012. Since then, the concentrate has been trucked 150 km to Northland’s new trans-loading terminal in Pitkäjärvi, outside Svappavaara. From Pitkäjärvi the product is transported by rail on the high capacity railway Malmbanan (the Ore Railway) to Narvik, a distance of 226 km (IM, February 2012, pp8-16).Commissioning has commenced at Canada Lithium Corp’s open-pit mine and processing facility near Val d’Or, Québec. During the month of November some 12,000 t of ore and 380,000 t of waste were mined. The waste material is predominantly used to construct the Tailings Management Facility. The ore has been crushed and stockpiled. Mining operations continued through the holiday period.Herencia Resources has recently undertaken a number of work programs aimed at incorporating an open-pit mine into the Paguanta feasibility study. The company announces that the total silver resource for the Paguanta project has increased to 15.6 Moz, an increase of approximately 2.2 Moz compared to the June 2012 Mineral Resource estimate of silver. This increase is a result of the identification of near-surface silver mineralisation (Silver Halo) up-dip from existing resources following recent sampling programs. The resource lies close to surface with potential for extraction by open-pit mining.Resource Generation has agreed to issue a secured debenture to Noble Resources International to raise $20 million cash to augment available funding and progress construction activities at its Boikarabelo coal mine. An export coal offtake contract for 2.5 Mt of coal has also been entered into with Noble, with supply after production commences at the Boikarabelo mine. Resource Generation is developing the Boikarabelo coal mine in the Waterberg region of South Africa where there are probable reserves of 744.8 Mt of coal on 35% of the tenements under its control.last_img read more

first_imgWS Tyler introduced its new, all-inclusive Hydro-Clean Mobile Test Plant at CONEXPO, which enables operations to test Hydro-Clean washing technology at their sites before committing to a capital investment. The company stated: “Washing material with the Hydro-Clean results in cleaner products, higher selling values and new income from the sale of material that previously was considered waste. With the Mobile Test Plant, aggregate, recycling, coal mining and other types of operations can see first-hand the Hydro-Clean’s success in washing their own materials on site.”WS Tyler says it has improved its previous Hydro-Clean Mobile Test Plants by incorporating all the crucial components needed for testing – a feed hopper, a feed conveyor, the Hydro-Clean unit and a larger, single-deck rinse screen – all self-contained on a 16.2 m (53 ft) trailer. “Supplying some of this equipment can be inconvenient for many customers,” said Michael Honea, WS Tyler process engineer. “The new Mobile Test Plant is completely self contained to make testing as easy as possible for our customers, and provides results that clearly illustrate how the technology can add value to their operations.”The company also stated that it has had a lot of success with Hydro-Clean testing in coal. Billions of tonnes of coal sit abandoned in mines throughout the world because it is heavily contaminated with soil or clay, which dramatically reduces its BTU value. Utility companies generally are not interested in using this contaminated coal as it is a low-quality product. Log washers can be used to clean the coal, but they often lack enough force and friction to remove clay. Log washers also generally require the clay to go through several cycles, and they are costly to operate. Testing has indicated the Hydro-Clean is effective at removing soil and clay contaminants in one pass, and it more than doubled the BTU value of the coal. This process reduces the virgin coal consumed by a utility company which reduces expenses. The cleaning process more than doubled the value of the coal.Tests completed with the Mobile Plant, using a client’s contaminated material, will accurately determine the effectiveness of the Hydro-Clean technology. It also allows WS Tyler to establish a baseline for the expected production capabilities of one of its full sized units. Finally, the cleaned, finished product allows for analysis of the desired material gradation. This gives WS Tyler and the operator an opportunity to see the results of the liberated material and to determine the potential increase in value.The Mobile Test Plant can process up to 18 t/h. W.S. Tyler provides a diesel generator and a diesel engine to power it, and a WS Tyler representative is on site to conduct the testing. WS Tyler’s stationary and portable Hydro-Clean systems are available in three sizes with varying capacities: the HC350, HC1000 and HC2000. The high-pressure water liberates the desired material from the clay better and faster than traditional washers. The Hydro-Cleans uses 75% less water than traditional washing methods, and since only 10% fresh water is required to operate it effectively, operations can use recycled water to reduce water consumption even further. Finally, the Hydro-Cleans uses approximately 15% less energy than traditional washers.last_img read more

Pic: AP Photo/Ng Han GuanA total of 153 Chinese were on board the Beijing-bound Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 that disappeared from civilian radar screens on March 8, nearly an hour after taking off from Kuala Lumpur. The plane was carrying 239 passengers and crew.“Government of Malaysia, tell us the truth! Give us back our loved ones!” shouted audience members at Saturday’s briefing at the hotel attended by government officials. The hotel has hosted daily briefings for relatives from representatives of the airline.“The Malaysian government is deceiving us. They don’t dare to face us. The Malaysian government are the biggest murderers,” a relative in the audience shouted, even though there is no evidence to suggest a government conspiracy.As anger in the hall mounted, some relatives rushed towards the Malaysian officials but police intervened and the officials left the room.“We can’t bear it any longer,” one woman said.They’re offering us compensation, but we’ve lost our entire families. This is China. They can’t just tell us to come or go as they please. We’re going to wait here. If they don’t come, we’re not leaving.SearchA man covers his face as he walks out from a room reserved for relatives of Chinese passengers . Pic: AP Photo/Ng Han GuanDozens of countries have been involved in the search for the missing plane but the lack of firm answers from airline officials has undermined the relatives’ confidence in the hunt for the jet.On Friday, a first meeting was organised between the passengers’ families and Malaysian government officials. That meeting also resulted in heated exchanges, boos and eruptions of anger.Six planes, including four Orion anti-submarine aircraft packed with state-of-the-art surveillance equipment, joined the search for debris from the aircraft over a remote stretch of the Indian Ocean, 2,500 kilometres southwest of Perth on Saturday.Chinese, British and Australian naval ships were all steaming to the same area where two floating objects – possibly plane wreckage – were picked out on grainy satellite pictures.- © AFP, 2014Read: Search for missing plane resumes amid anger from families of passengers>last_img read more

first_img Share your voice YouTube says it recognizes that “minors could be at risk of online or offline exploitation.” Seth Rosenblatt/CNET YouTube’s recommendation system enables people who leer at videos of children in bathing suits to more easily find other videos that could offer pedophiliac appeal, according to a study reported Monday by The New York Times. YouTube said it has expanded its efforts from earlier this year to limit recommendations of “borderline content” to include videos featuring minors in risky situations, YouTube said in a blog post Monday. “While the content itself does not violate our policies, we recognize the minors could be at risk of online or offline exploitation,” Google-owned YouTube said. “We’ve already applied these changes to tens of millions of videos across YouTube.”The company referred CNET to the blog post when asked for comment on the study.The study comes after YouTube disabled comments in February on videos featuring minors. That move followed reports about an subculture of posting comments on YouTube videos of children that could be construed in a sexualized way; the comments include time-stamp links that would take viewers to similar videos at other sexually suggestive moments. YouTube’s algorithm played a role in that scandal as well: Once somebody happened upon these video and clicked one of the comment links, the sidebar of recommended videos would surface many others like it. The latest study, from researchers at Harvard’s Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society, was conducted after Google removed comments from videos with minors. The study found that YouTube’s automatic video-recommendation system would surface otherwise innocuous home movies after a user watched sexually themed content. It resulted in a library of videos that sexualizes children, according to researchers in the report. Digital Media YouTube Tags Comment 1last_img read more

first_imgThe iPhone 8 rumor mill has been churning since last fall, when reports tipped a zirconia ceramic casing and 5.8-inch OLED panel.Now, ahead of the traditional autumnal unveiling, plans for Apple’s 10th-anniversary smartphone design have been “confirmed.”According to Forbes contributor Gordon Kelly, the iPhone 8 will, in fact, feature an “elongated and enlarged” 5.8-inch display, with a cutout on top for the front-facing camera and sensors. via Nodus and Gordon KellyThanks to his friends at case designer Nodus, Kelly snagged CAD (computer-aided design) files for the next-gen handset.“We have rendered these to visualize the final design, and I can confirm that, despite problems, fears Apple would fall back on a less ambitious ‘Plan B’ are unfounded,” he wrote on Sunday, alongside a series of images.Highlighting a new device “like no other iPhone,” Kelly hinted at an Android-like vertical rear camera setup—intended to support Cupertino’s drive into augmented reality, “where horizontally aligned cameras are more effective, and the phone is expected to be held in a landscape orientation,” the reporter said.via Nodus and Gordon KellyAnd while this release will not see the return of the headphone jack, Kelly vouched for the prevailing Lightning port; there will be no switch to USB Type-C just yet (despite the company’s adoption of the new tech in its MacBooks).The latest design, meanwhile, does away with the chunky bezels—and, perhaps most notably, the physical home button—to which iUsers are so accustomed.At least one aspect of the upcoming smartphone remains a mystery: Will Apple integrate Touch ID into the display, or copy Sony and merge it with the seemingly enlarged power button (for which Cupertino already has a patent).via Nodus and Gordon KellyOther iPhone 8 secrets include battery capacity, camera specifications, A11 chipset performance, and pricing.“But when it comes to its looks, ladies and gentlemen: This is the iPhone 8,” Kelly said.Apple did not immediately respond to Geek’s request for comment.Don’t expect to unwrap a new iPhone this holiday season, though: A flurry of reports this week suggest delays to the device lineup—to the extent that production on the flagship phone won’t even start until November or December.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

first_imgGUATEMALA CITY — GuatemalanNobel Peace Prize laureate Rigoberta Menchú on Friday lamented the impunity that surrounds the massacre of indigenous people by the military in the north of the country 37 years ago during the civil war.“Today marks 37 years of impunity and oversight by the Guatemalan justice system of the Panzós Massacre, which took place on May 29, 1978,” Menchú said in a press release.During the massacre in Panzós, a town located 275 kilometers north of Guatemala City, 53 people died in the town square when the military stopped a public demonstration by farmers who sought to reclaim their lands.Members of the military stashed the bodies in a truck belonging to the municipality and moved them to a place near the public cemetery, where they used a tractor to dig a mass grave and buried the bodies.“Survivors fled in every direction, some to the mountains, others towards the river, and some starved to death while others drowned as they tried to cross Polochic River in overloaded boats,” added Menchú, who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1992.“We demand that the authorities end impunity for the grave human rights violations perpetrated during the internal armed conflict,” Menchú said.The massacre was one of the first recorded during the war that raged in Guatemala from 1960 to 1996, leading to the death or disappearance of 200,000 people.A report drafted by the United Nations in 1999 declared that the military is responsible for 93 percent of human rights violations committed during the conflict.The report documented 669 massacres during the war, of which 626 were attributed to the military.Related: Guatemala high court paves way for new genocide trial against ex-dictator Ríos Montt  Facebook Comments Related posts:For justice in Guatemala, ‘2 steps forward, 1 step back’ Guatemalan ex-police chief handed 90 years over embassy raid The military powers behind Guatemala’s comedian presidential front-runner Landmark sexual slavery case in Guatemala examines use of rape as weapon of warlast_img read more

first_img How do cataracts affect your vision? It comes as Turkey’s security situation “has deteriorated dramatically,” Bruno Lete, senior officer for foreign and security policy at the German Marshall Fund, a Brussels think tank, said.“The rise of Islamic State in northern Iraq, in northern Syria, has effectively destabilized the southern border of Turkey. But also domestically, the threat of terrorism has become very real,” Lete told The Associated Press.NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, who will chair the closed-door session, said Turkey requested it following recent “heinous terrorist attacks,” which included an IS suicide bombing near Turkey’s border with Syria that left 32 people dead and an IS attack on Turkish forces, which killed a soldier.“NATO allies follow developments very closely and stand in solidarity with Turkey,” Stoltenberg said in announcing Tuesday’s meeting of the alliance’s main political decision-making body, the North Atlantic Council.According to official NATO records, there have been only four other so-called Article 4 meetings since the U.S.-led alliance was created in 1949.Most recently, NATO ambassadors convened in March 2014 at Poland’s request following Russia’s annexation of Crimea from Ukraine. Arizona families, Arizona farms: providing the local community with responsibly produced dairy BRUSSELS (AP) — For just the fifth time in its 66-year history, NATO ambassadors will meet in emergency session Tuesday to gauge the threat the Islamic State extremist group poses to Turkey, and the debated actions Turkish authorities are taking in response.The extraordinary meeting at NATO headquarters was requested by Turkey under Article 4 of the treaty that founded the U.S.-led alliance, which empowers its 28 member states to seek such consultations when they consider their “territorial integrity, political independence or security” to be in jeopardy. What’s more, Turkish leaders “have actually been arguing that the Kurds in Syria are more of a threat to Turkey,” Kearns told the AP. He said the targets chosen in the recent military strikes by Turkey were clear confirmation of that geopolitical calculus.On Monday, Syria’s main Kurdish militia and an activist group said Turkish troops shelled a Syrian village near the border, targeting Kurdish fighters.The official NATO announcement of Tuesday’s meeting of alliance ambassadors said one of the reasons Turkey sought it was to explain “the measures it is taking.” Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told reporters Monday he would spell out in detail the security threats his country faces.“We expect solidarity and support from our NATO allies,” he said, without elaborating.Cavusoglu, who spoke during an official visit to Lisbon, Portugal, flatly refused to draw a distinction between IS and PKK.“There is no difference between PKK and Daesh.

Comments   Share   After months of reluctance, Turkish warplanes last week started striking militant targets in Syria and entered a long-awaited agreement which allows the U.S. to launch its own strikes from Turkey’s strategically located Incirlik Air Base.The United States and Turkey on Monday were also finalizing plans for a military campaign to push the Islamic State group out of a strip of Syrian territory along the Turkish border.But in a series of cross-border strikes since Friday, Turkey has not only targeted the IS group but also Kurdish fighters affiliated with forces battling IS in Syria and Iraq.The Syrian Kurds are among the most effective ground forces battling the IS group and have been aided by U.S.-led airstrikes, but Turkey fears they could revive an insurgency against it in pursuit of an independent state.The Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK, has fought Turkey for autonomy for Kurds in a conflict that has claimed tens of thousands of lives since 1984. The Kurds are an ethnic group with their own language living in a region spanning present-day Turkey, Iraq, Syria, Iran and Armenia.For some NATO members and independent observers, it’s still not clear whether Turkey’s No. 1 target is IS or the Kurds, said Ian Kearns, director of the European Leadership Network, a London-based think tank.

first_img TEMPE, Ariz. — Let’s get this out of the way: Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson received a game ball for his performance on Monday Night Football.Rushing for 111 yards and three touchdowns on the NFL’s No. 2 ranked run defense deserved some recognition, which Johnson received, finally, from head coach Bruce Arians.“He did give me a little bit of praise, but also at the same time,” Johnson said. “He let me know that I did have that ME (mental error) on the safety coming through the middle” untouched to hit Carson Palmer in the second half. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo The only numbers Johnson cares about, however, are wins and losses.Still, it’s pretty impressive what Johnson, and really the entire Cardinals running game, has accomplished thus far, especially recently. In back-to-back weeks, the offense has rushed for better than 170 yards. No Cardinals team has done that since 1988.“Obviously, it’s blocking,” Johnson said, again deflecting credit. “Like you saw on that long run (58-yard touchdown vs. the Jets), you saw Fitz (Larry Fitzgerald) who always blocks, John Brown always blocks. You saw Earl (Watford) who’s outrunning me almost. All those guys are always blocking down the field. They’re making my ability to run the ball a lot easier. It really just comes down to me being able to be patient and being able to read my holes (running lanes).”With another solid performance this week, in another primetime appearance, against the Seahawks on Sunday Night Football, Johnson will exceed his rushing total from all of last season, when he gained 581 yards over 16 games, including five starts.He’s already matched his rushing touchdowns total as a rookie.Johnson, a third-round pick, the 86th overall selection in the 2015 NFL Draft, would like nothing better than to keep the Cardinals’ ground game on the attack. It won’t be easy, however, against Seattle.

He also extended his franchise record for consecutive games with 100-plus yards from scrimmage to open a season.Because his past two efforts have come in primetime in front of a national television audience, Johnson is garnering more attention.“It’s been pretty good, but I still got to focus on my job, my responsibility for the team and make sure I’m ready for the game (against Seattle),” he said, surrounded by reporters at his locker following practice on Thursday.And it’s not just the media that wants a piece of the Cardinals’ second-year star. It’s family, it’s friends — either calling or texting — all with pretty much the same message.“Most of them mention fantasy somehow, someway,” he said, referring to his popularity among fantasy football league owners.Through six games, Johnson ranks third in rushing yards (568, behind Dallas’ Ezekiel Elliott and Buffalo’s LeSean McCoy), first in rushing touchdowns (8) and first in all-purpose yards (833); all important numbers in fantasy football. “That is a tough defense,” he said. “What makes them so good is they’re physical, they’re explosive, they’re fast, they’re just a relentless defense that goes for all four quarters.”The Seahawks rank third against the run, allowing 74.6 yards per game. They have held each of their last two opponents, the Jets and the Falcons, under 60 yards.Seattle’s run defense has been even more impressive when playing at University of Phoenix Stadium. In their last three regular season games in Arizona, the Seahawks have held the Cardinals to 30, 29 and 27 total yards on the ground.The goal Sunday is to do better — a lot better — according to Johnson.“A lot of guys don’t get 100 yards on them. It’s very tough to do that,” he said. “That would mean a lot just to continue the success of us running (the ball).”And 100 rushing yards would probably mean another game ball for him, right?“I would hope so, especially for the o-line for sure,” Johnson said, adding one more deflection of praise. “I think they deserve one anytime I do well, any time any other running backs do well. They definitely deserve it. The linemen, the tight ends, the receivers, they all deserve a game ball.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Follow Craig Grialou on Twitterlast_img read more
