Chinas celebration of building binge overshadowed by debt

BEIJING — Asian and African leaders plan to press China at a conference this week to reduce the politically volatile debt burden left by its Belt and Road Initiative to build ports and other trade-related infrastructure.That injects a potential note of conflict into the official celebration of President Xi Jinping’s signature foreign initiative, which has stirred anxiety in Washington, Moscow and Tokyo that Beijing is trying to expand its global influence.The meeting starting Thursday brings together leaders or envoys from three dozen countries including Malaysia, Serbia and Kenya.A spokesman for Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed of Ethiopia says debt “is going to be part of the prime minister’s focus at the forum.”Nepal, Sri Lanka and Thailand have cancelled or renegotiated railways and other projects they concluded were too expensive.The Associated Press read more

UN agency adopts new single standard for interactive TV worldwide

Under the new measures approved by the Geneva-based International Telecommunication Union (ITU), viewers anywhere in the world, for example, can access data on a football player while watching a match without the service provider having to implement any of the modifications previously needed.Previously, proprietary or country-specific standards forced content providers to develop different product versions for each market.The new standard means content will stay true to the author’s design in all markets – a key concern for advertisers. Content providers will also find that it removes barriers to entry and reduces risk, while helping to advance the functionality of iTV services. The need to drive iTV services is seen as particularly relevant to the market in the United States, where services have been slow to develop.ITU is a worldwide organization that brings governments and industry together to coordinate the establishment and operation of global telecommunication networks and services. It is responsible for standardization, coordination and development of international telecommunications including radio communications, as well as the harmonization of national policies. read more

Sri Lanka deploys army to distribute fuel during strike

Sri Lanka deploys army to distribute fuel during strike by Bharatha Mallawarachi, The Associated Press Posted Jul 26, 2017 2:35 am MDT Last Updated Jul 26, 2017 at 3:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email COLOMBO, Sri Lanka – Sri Lanka’s government deployed army troops on Wednesday to restore fuel distribution crippled during a strike launched by trade unions who want to stop leases of oil tanks to India and China.Long lines have formed at gasoline stations across Sri Lanka since Monday evening due to the strike by workers at the state-run petroleum company.Military spokesman Brig. Roshan Seneviratne said troops entered the country’s main distribution facility and refinery at Kolonnawa and Muthurajawela outside Colombo early Wednesday and they are now working in distribution facilities alongside the workers not on strike to resume the distribution of fuel.The army deployment followed a government decree issued Tuesday night that the supply and distribution of fuel, including petroleum products and gas, were an essential service.The trade unions’ announcement on Wednesday that it would continue the strike came a day after the government approved of selling a large stake in a southern port to China.Ceylon Petroleum Common Workers Union spokesman D.J. Rajakaruna said that along with the agreement, China will get 11 oil tanks at the port.He also said the government was moving to give 99 oil tanks in the eastern port city of Trincomalee to India.The tanks were built by the British during World War II but were unused until some were given to Lanka IOC, a unit of Indian Oil Corp., in 2002 as part of a privatization deal, giving Indians a presence at the strategic port.Rajakaruna said the government is now trying to lease out 14 of the 99 tanks to Indian companies and have a joint venture for the other tanks.He said the tanks are a prime national asset of Sri Lanka but the agreements would benefit only Chinese and Indian companies, adding that the moves would severely affect Sri Lanka’s economy in the long run.Cabinet spokesman and health minister Rajitha Senarathna told reporters that the strike is politically motivated and the government is ready to face it. “These are political demands and not trade union demands,” he said. “A country can’t be governed by the demands put forward by trade unions.”The Cabinet approval Tuesday involved a long-delayed agreement to sell to China a 70 per cent stake in a $1.2 billion Chinese-built port in the southern town of Hambantota.In January, hundreds of farmers and opposition supporters protested the government’s plan to lease the port, saying the proposed partnership was akin to a sellout of the country. The agreement on the deal is to be signed by the Sri Lanka Ports Authority and the state-run China Merchants Port Holding Co. over the weekend. read more

The Commission of Inquiry (CoI) into the June 2008 massacre at Lindo Creek heard that a then 15-year-old member of the notorious ‘Fine Man’ gang told Police investigators that the gang was responsible for murdering the eight men at their mining camp.Special Superintendent of Police Trevor Reid takes the stand before the Lindo Creek Massacre COIWhen special Superintendent of Police, Trevor Reid, took to the stand, on Tuesday before Commissioner retired Justice Donald Trotman, he testified that he was the one who took the caution statement from then 15-year-old gang member, Dwayne ‘Small Friend’ Williams.Despite failing to produce the original statement to the CoI, Reid was allowed to read a photocopy.Williams, who is now 25 years old and is currently on remand for several murders, in July of 2008 told investigators that they had escaped the Police in Ituni area when they stumbled upon the Arokium’s mining camp at Lindo Creek.He related that the gang consisted of himself, Cecil “Magic” Ramcharran, Robin ‘Chung Boy’ Chung and leader Rondel ‘Fine Man’ Rawlins.Williams’ statement also revealed that following the incident at Lindo Creek the gang left the site and whilst walking they encountered another Joint Services Checkpoint which they eluded.

Murray Roberts begins work on shafts at Impumelelo coal mine

first_imgMurray & Roberts Cementation has begun work on a contract awarded by Sasol Mining to provide a men-and-material shaft and a ventilation shaft as well as a decline and coal seam development on the No 2 and No 4 seams at Sasol Mining’s greenfields Impumelelo mine project. The mine, located about 50 km from Secunda and 22 km from Greylingstad in Mpumalanga, is one of the biggest coal projects that Murray & Robert Cementation has been involved with to date. The shaft complex has been designed to operate for a minimum period of 35 years. Project duration is estimated at about 43 months, from May 2011 to November 2014, including site establishment and site de-establishment. Excavation on the men-and-material shaft, the ventilation shaft and the decline began in July 2011 and is well within the programme schedule.RSV Enco-Goba Coal JV, comprising RSV Enco Consulting and Goba, is also project managing Sasol’s other greenfields mine complex projects, the nearby Thubelisha coal mine, which is being developed by Grinaker-LTA. Johann Prinsloo, senior project manager at Murray & Roberts Cementation, says that owing to the complexity of the project and in order to deliver a professional product, it was decided that Concor Civils, a Murray & Roberts Construction company, will undertake the civil construction of both shafts collars and the decline box cut, as well as portal construction with the closure of the box cut. Concor Civils will also carry out all other civil works for the site establishment.The 11.7 m diameter men-and-material shaft will be 240 m deep, with a four sided station on No 4 seam and a three sided station on No 2 seam being developed for access to the coal production sections that will be mined by Sasol using mechanised mining methods. The shaft will be fully lined and equipped as a service shaft with buntons and guides. Murray & Robert Cementation will also erect the permanent steel structure headgear frame, conducting the installation in two phases. Headgear structure erected during the first phase will be used for the sinking operation and the permanent arrangement will be erected during the second phase. Lifting of pre-erected headgear sections will be carried out by a 750 t crawler crane. The shaft will be serviced by a 65 t payload cage and counterweight by means of a Koepe winder, which will allow Sasol Mining to lower its continuous mining equipment into the underground workings. During the sinking process a single drum 12 t kibble winder will be used for lowering and hoisting personnel and material up and down the shaft, while a stage winder will be used to lower and raise the four-deck working stage. A five-boom drill jumbo will drill the shaft and shaft cleaning will be carried out by means of an excavator into the kibble.The 6.7 m diameter ventilation shaft will also be sunk to 240 m, with access through the four sided station on No 4 seam and the three sided station on No 2 seam to the coal production sections. During the sinking process, a double drum 8 t kibble winder will be used for moving personnel and material up and down the shaft and a stage winder will be used for lowering and raising the five-deck working stage. A temporary steel structure headgear frame will be erected for the sinking phase of this shaft. During pre-sinking of the ventilation shaft, a Scott derrick will be used to hoist material. Shaft drilling will be carried out using a four-boom drill jumbo and shaft cleaning will be undertaken with a cactus grab unit into the kibble. After sinking is completed, a permanent ventilation fan will be installed to service the mine.last_img read more

There she discovered “a large number of cats allowed to have bred uncontrollably”.A total of 44 cats and kittens were surrendered to the ISPCA and transferred to the National Animal Centre in Longford for veterinary assessment. The property had originally housed three cats, but they had multiplied to this number in just three years as none were spayed or neutered. Alastair is one of the cats looking for a new home now.

MovieBob Reviews SILENCE 2016

first_imgStay on target If nothing else, you’ve got to hand it to Martin Scorsese on this one just for having the fortitude, commitment to vision and sheer conviction to forge ahead and make a movie that (at least on paper) basically nobody is going to want to watch.For context: Silence is a historical drama about Catholic missionaries working to spread Christianity into the Far East that doesn’t outright (explicitly) condemn the idea of Western religious colonialism. This means a sizable portion of modern audiences are going to be fairly unsympathetic to the material right up front – and while there certainly is still an audience that might be inclined to “root” for that sort of thing on principle… it’s also a much more ambiguous and “thoughtful” film than tends to break big in that demographic (read: Neither Kirk Cameron nor Kevin Sorbo are anywhere to be found in the credits.)Oh, and while we’re at it it’s also a movie about enduring and surviving horrible torture (which also has an eager audience, but this is Scorsese in subdued/”holding-back” mode). It’s a long one – a few minutes shorter than, say, The Wolf of Wall Street but without all the guilty-pleasure bacchanalia that made you not notice that The Wolf of Wall Street was 3 hours long. In a modern Hollywood so timid about “sure things” that they’ll hesitate to make some movies that people DO ask them to make, pushing forward on a project that’s almost guaranteed not to connect entirely because it’s a passion project you just have to get out of your system? Gotta respect that – I just wish the movie was better.Don’t get me wrong: it’s far from a “dud” – this is Martin Scorsese we’re talking about, and Martin Scorsese simply doesn’t make “duds.” But it also really failed to grab me in a way where I’m not sure if I’m more disappointed in the movie or myself. Grappling as one must with the modern film critic’s eternal self-doubt as to whether or not one is committing the plebian sin of dismissing a Scorsese film because it doesn’t fall into the crime/mafia/machismo mold he’s most famous for. It’s not quite the same heresy the protagonists of the film wrestles with, but an inner turmoil all the same.In any case: This the second adaptation of Japanese author Shūsaku Endō’s historical fiction novel about the persecution of Tokugawa-era Japan’s minority Christian population while the faith was outlawed by the government following the Shimabara Rebellion of 1637. The basic setup is that the government is arresting and torturing believers to pressure the foreign Missionaries ministering to them to commit symbolic acts of apostasy – specifically placing their foot on an image of Christ and renouncing their faith. Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver (no, really) are a pair of Portuguese Catholic Priests who travel to Japan looking for their mentor (Liam Neeson) after learning that he has gone missing and been accused of not only renouncing Christ but going over to the side of the Japanese government itself. While there, they also discover secret clans of Japan’s “Hidden Christians” who seek their help as well, but… suffice it to say; things don’t really go well for anybody involved.So it’s basically another Heart of Darkness riff on which to hang an extended-length meditation on the nature of faith and whether or not faith in and of itself is worth the suffering it often asks of a true believer, punctuated by oddly-subdued scenes of torture and violence. And there’s a lot to recommend. It’s beautiful to look atsoft pass’s fascinating to see Scorsese hold back from the high-energy kinetic camerawork he’s often associated with. The fact that there’s almost zero music for the duration is a bold choice (“Silence” – get it?), and the ideas that make up its thematic core all get ample (perhaps too ample, to be honest) room to breathe and make their case.Unfortunately, the way it comes together makes it all feel just a little bit cold and detached despite the supposed gravity of everything going down. Yes, fine, that’s part of the point; but at a certain level, the audience has to be drawn into a connection with the main character’s internal plight so that we can understand (or at least empathize with) the moral and psychological conflict they’re enduring. And while it all fits together on paper that we should be doing so… Silence just never quite managed to draw me into the narrative no matter how much I admired the craftsmanship – and sadly, I have to put a lot of that onto Andrew Garfield.Look, this kid is clearly a dedicated actor, he’ll probably be really compelling someday and I know we’re all eager to cut him a break because he’s trying really hard to wash off those godawful Spider-Man reboots off his resume… but he’s just not up to this kind of material. Driver is actually better than you’d expect, but Garfield is saddled with not only more screentime but the narration, the inner monologue and most of the second half before Neeson can show up and make everyone else look like they’re doing regional dinner theater. This was gonna be a tough role for anybody since you’re doing all the heavy-lifting yourself without much deliberate flourish or “showy” moments to disperse the workload, absolutely – but regardless, Garfield just doesn’t yet have the chops for this, and it makes the film a chore.And while Scorsese is doing probably the best job that any Western filmmaker could possibly do in being fair (and also fairly cynical) about the basic premise; it’s none the less hard not to feel like we’re hearing the wrong or at least less-compelling side of the story. It’s true that this was probably the worst moment in time conceivable regarding “the discourse” to release a film that asks an audience to feel anything other than abject contempt for white European men striding into someone else’s country. Men looking to drive religious conversions, there surely must be a way to be faithful to Endo’s narrative without the film occasionally feeling within sight of giving a soft-pass to Jesuit colonialism.Sometimes even the best of artists get lost inside of long-gestating passion projections. And Scorsese is no exception – see also: Gangs of New York (or, rather, don’t). Silence is nobly intended and not a failure of execution (certainly not of ambition, either) but it just doesn’t come together in the end.
