first_imgPANAMA CITY – Looters ransacked shops and stoned vehicles in Panama City on Friday following protests outside the Congress against a law that permits the sale of public lands in a duty free zone.Dozens of hooded assailants stormed through the streets around the capitol building, attacking congressional guards and smashing store windows and parked vehicles with stones.Local television showed images of looters making off with television sets, stereo equipment, appliances and alcoholic beverages.The eruption of violence followed a protest by members of a construction union against the new law, which President Ricardo Martinelli has promised to rescind.Heavily armed police intervened after a half hour of chaos, making mass arrests to restore order.“We are concerned by the turn that this situation is taking,” Irving Hallman, head of Panama’s Chamber of Commerce, said in a television interview. “There is no justification for vandalism by those who are trying to take advantage of the situation.”Protests have flared since Oct. 19, when Martinelli signed a law allowing the sale of public lands in the free trade area in the city of Colón.Three people were killed in the first eruption of violent protests in Colón immediately after the law was signed, and the city has been paralyzed by strikes since then.Protests also have spread to Panama City and the border area with Costa Rica.Martinelli, who was flying home from a trip to Asia, promised in a Twitter message Friday to introduce a bill repealing the land sale law in its entirety.“The law sought the best for Colón but it had little acceptance. We will proceed with its definitive repeal. We want peace and tranquility for all,” he wrote. Facebook Comments No related posts.last_img read more

BP, the company in charge of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig that exploded a mile above the Gulf of Mexico seafloor five years ago, announced that it has reached a comprehensive agreement with the federal government, as well as the states and the municipalities that were affected by the 3 million barrels of oil that gushed into the water.The amount of BP money that will flow into Gulf Coast restoration over the next two decades is prodigious. Both BP and the government deserve credit for heading off a nasty and prolonged legal battle. What we still don’t know — and may not know for a very long time — is the extent of the damage the spill caused.The multinational oil firm will pay an additional $18.7 billion over the next 18 years to settle various environmental and economic claims stemming from the accident. A rough estimate of BP’s total bill is now available: over $50 billion, according to Bloomberg Business, which is more than the company previously set aside to cover the costs of the accident. Under a law passed after the spill, most of the new money will go to the gulf. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a Republican whose state stands to reap nearly $7 billion, promised on Thursday to fund a program to stop coastal erosion.President Barack Obama determined in 2010 to demand accountability from BP without bankrupting the company. The latter goal served two purposes: maintaining BP’s capability to pay claims and maintaining the United States’ attractiveness to foreign investors, making clear that disasters such as the Deepwater Horizon spill would not be used as pretext to suck them dry. The upside for BP in Thursday’s settlement is that the company has essentially agreed to a payment plan, spreading its financial commitment into predictable and manageable chunks.Though BP’s legal battles are nearly over, the effort to assess and restore the gulf is not. The company claims that the gulf’s ecosystems have been remarkably resilient, and there is truth to this. The region is not in the dire state that anyone watching oil spew into the water five years ago might have anticipated. But environmental groups and the government say it’s too early to tell the full effects. The Natural Resource Damage Assessment Trustees, who are charged with estimating how much harm occurred, warned this year that it’s “inappropriate as well as premature” to make any firm conclusions. But, they added, “From decades of experience with oil spills, we know that the environmental effects of this spill are likely to last for generations.”From here, the challenge will be ensuring that federal, state and local authorities spend their money well, concentrating on the most pressing environmental problems facing the gulf.© 2015, The Washington Post Facebook Commentslast_img read more


first_imgYouth travel can have both a positive economic and social impact on the world’s destinations, according to research gleaned from the PATA Youth Forum.150 travel industry students and young professionals gathered in Bangkok for the PATA Youth Forum this month to share opinions and views on global travel.The number one incentive for young people to travel is the possibility to “explore other cultures,” WYSE Travel Confederation international relations officer Peter Jordan said.Youth, student and educational travel is estimated to return US$182 billion annually.“Besides the impressive economic impact that youth travel has on the world’s destinations, the social impact is no less important,” Mr Jordan said.“The capacity to enhance global understanding by encouraging young people to travel is considerable too.”The Youth Travel Forum also celebrated the efforts of Marco Polo Hotels senior director of development James Mabey, honouring him with PATA’s Face of the Future 2013.“In today’s fast paced and increasingly interconnected world, young professionals must embrace the spirit of cross-cultural understanding and creative problem solving,” Mr Mabey said.“The future belongs to those young professionals who will boldly challenge tradition and capitalize on the opportunities of our new interdependent global society.”Source = e-Travel Blackboard: P.T.

first_img Share July 15, 2016 514 Views Mortgage Applications Mortgage Refinances New York Fed 2016-07-15 Seth Welborn in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, Newscenter_img Consumers’ experiences in the credit market have improved compared to earlier in the year, but at the same time consumers seem to be more pessimistic about their prospects for future credit approval—particularly with access to mortgage credit, according to the New York Fed’s SCE (Survey of Consumer Expectations) Credit Access Survey released Friday.Rejection rates declined overall from 20.9 percent in the previous SCE Credit Access Survey in February down to 19.3 percent, near the all-time series low of 19.2 percent reached in June 2015. The decline was driven by lower credit score respondents (lower with a credit score lower than 680).All credit types—credit card, credit card limit increase, auto loan—experienced declines in rejection rates since February’s survey except for housing-related debt. For mortgage applications, the rejected rate shot up from 5.7 percent in February to 10.3 percent in the survey released Friday.  Mortgage applications experienced a similar increase in the last five months, from 9.7 percent up to 17.3 percent, according to the New York Fed. Even with the substantial hikes, these rejection rates are still below their 2015 levels, the New York Fed reported.The spike in the number of rejections for mortgage applications and mortgage refi applications may explain the drop in expectations for being approved for a mortgage loan or a refinance. The perceived likelihood of a mortgage application being rejected (conditional upon applying) has risen by 5 percentage points since October 2015 up to 39.9 percent, according to the survey.Still, the fear of rejection is apparently not going to deter consumers from applying for a mortgage refinance. While the average likelihood of applying for specific kinds of credit over the next 12 months was little changed, the expected likelihood of applying for mortgage refinancing spiked from 8.7 percent up to 11.6 percent—and the increase was prevalent among all age and credit score groups, the New York Fed reported.Click here to view the entire survey.

first_img‘Oh! Susanna’ songwriter’s statue removed amid criticism A Pittsburgh Public work crew removes the Stephen Foster statue in Schenley Plaza on Thursday, April 26, 2018, in Pittsburgh. The 118-year-old statue of the “Oh! Susanna” songwriter was removed after criticism that the work is demeaning because it includes a slave sitting at his feet, plucking a banjo. The Pittsburgh Art Commission voted unanimously last October to relocate the statue.

Susanna” songwriter was removed from a Pittsburgh park Thursday after criticism that the work is demeaning because it includes a slave sitting at his feet, plucking a banjo.In October, the Pittsburgh Art Commission voted to take the Stephen Foster sculpture out of Schenley Plaza and find it a new home. For now, it will remain in a storage lot, out of the public view.On Thursday, workers used straps and construction equipment to lift the 10-foot-bronze statue off its base. It was strapped to a flatbed truck and taken away.The Giuseppe Moretti statue was completed in 1900 and thousands attended its dedication.The shoeless banjo player is based on “Uncle Ned,” a fictional slave and subject of a song by the same name. Critics have long decried the statue as racist.“It’s the single most offensive display of public art in Pittsburgh, hands down,” Paradise Gray, a hip-hop activist, musician and writer, told the Post-Gazette in August . “It permanently depicts the black man at the white man’s feet.”Others say it highlights that Foster was inspired by black spirituals. Some historians contend the 1848 song is actually an early, subtle anti-slavery song.A statue honouring an African-American woman will be put up in its place. Residents can submit nominations.Foster, a Pittsburgh native, is often called the father of American music and was known for enduring tunes from the 1800s.His songs include “Camptown Races,” ”My Old Kentucky Home,” ”Beautiful Dreamer” and “Old Folks at Home” (Swanee Song).He died penniless in New York City in 1864 at age 37.last_img read more
