Energy regulator says crude-by-rail shipments fell to 310,000 bpd in August

Posted On Jan 10 2020 by

first_imgThis report by The Canadian Press was first published Oct. 21, 2019.Companies in this story: (TSX:IMO) CALGARY — The Canada Energy Regulator says exports of crude oil by rail from Canada fell slightly in August to 310,000 barrels per day from 313,000 bpd in July.The August number is up 35 per cent from 230,000 bpd reported in August of 2018 but still well below the record high of 354,000 bpd set last December.The small change in crude-by-rail shipments came despite a threat by Imperial Oil Ltd. CEO Rich Kruger to throttle back the company’s rail movements in August and September to protest the ongoing Alberta oil production curtailment program.- Advertisement -He says the program damages the economic case for crude-by-rail by artificially lowering the difference in oil prices between Alberta and the end market on the U.S. Gulf Coast.Imperial reported moving 80,000 bpd by rail in June. It co-owns an oil shipping rail terminal at Edmonton with capacity to load 210,000 barrels of crude per day. Alberta has gradually eased the curtailment program designed to better align production with tight pipeline capacity from an initial withholding of about 325,000 bpd last January to 125,000 bpd in September.Advertisement The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Premier League goalkeeper: “I speak to the full-backs in Spanish, the centre backs in French and English

Posted On Dec 30 2019 by

first_img1 Petr Cech has revealed the secret to Arsenal’s defensive success in the Premier League this season.The Czech shot-stopper has been outstanding between the sticks since his summer move from Chelsea and his calming presence has been hailed as a key reason for the Gunners’ rise to the top of the table.Cech, who broke David James’ record for clean sheets in the Premier League in Monday’s win over Bournemouth, has now revealed that his well-marshalled back-line owes much to his multilingual skills.The 33-year-old can speak five languages – Czech, English, French, Spanish and German – and that has helped him get his message across clearly.He told the Mirror: “I speak to the full-backs [Nacho Monreal and Hector Bellerin] in Spanish, to [Laurent] Koscielny in French and to Per [Mertesacker] in English, because for him it is the same as me.“He organises people in English. Sometimes foreign players wouldn’t know what you say.“That’s when you realise it’s easier to say it in their language than hoping they will understand. It can happen.”Cech was Arsene Wenger’s only summer recruit when he moved across London from Stamford Bridge to the Emirates after losing his first team spot to Thibaut Courtois.Chelsea go into 2016 sitting 14th in the Premier League, while Arsenal are in the driving seat to win their first league title in 12 years.It is arguably the north Londoners’ best chance in a number of years and Cech says he would not have joined the club if he felt it was not possible.He explained: “I realised it was not my time to sit on the bench, I wanted to play the games because I believed I had the qualities to play and this is where I started to make the decision to come here (Arsenal) and to play.“It was not an easy decision but I always wanted to go to a team which could win.“If I didn’t believe that I was going to a team which could win then I don’t know why I would come.“I play football, not to only enjoy it and I love the challenge of playing and competing with the best players, but I want to have the chance to win games.“I believe this team has the qualities to win games and hopefully we will manage to go all the way in the league.“It’s a very difficult and long run but I believe this team has the capabilities of doing it.“We are in a good position, we are in the mix of the teams who will play to win the title so we want to stay in that position for as long as possible and every time we have a chance to improve our position then we would love to do it.”SEE HERE – ‘Petr Cech well worthy of new Premier League record’, says former holder David James Petr Cech last_img read more

Changing of the guards gets Rebels back on track vs. REV

Posted On Dec 29 2019 by

first_img But Blanche is back now, and Hall is back to her old self. Returned to her familiar shooting guard spot, she bedeviled Redlands East Valley on Friday night in a 49-31 Rebels’ victory. “Jasmine is only at about 40 percent right now,” Wilkins said. “She’s missed almost the whole season. And when Briana was at the point she became too passive.” FONTANA – Fourteen games ago, Miller starter Jasmine Blanche strained a ligament in her shooting hand. Coach Mel Wilkins was forced to move standout Briana Hall from shooting guard to point guard, and Wilkins didn’t like what he saw. Wilkins thought the position change made Hall tentative and unaggressive. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card That wasn’t a problem in the second half of Friday night’s game as Hall collected a pair of steals and layups – and a pretty assist to Keisha Mackall – within the first 4:06 of the third quarter as Miller extended a 20-17 halftime lead to 12 points. Fewer than two minutes into the fourth quarter, Aundria Anderson made a three-ponter and Miller led by 20. The game was all but over. “With Aundria, we have our inside-outside game,” Wilkins said. “She can light it up.” Anderson finished with 19 points, making 5-of-6 from three-point range. Hall added 16 points on 8-of-11 shooting. Anderson and Hall combined to make 15-of-23 shots from the field. center_img Also for Miller, Blanche had 11 points, Jessica Rosa grabbed seven rebounds and Mackall had four assists. “This game was similar to the first one we had against them, except they came out right away in the second half tonight and blew it open,” REV coach Ted Berry said. “(Hall) is outstanding. She’s a great player.” Lydia Thomas led REV (15-5, 4-2) with eight points. Miller improved to 17-4, 7-0, and will be difficult to catch in the Citrus Belt League. The defending league champs have won nine consecutive games and 25 consecutive league games. And with Hall back at her comfy shooting guard spot, those streaks may not end any time soon. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Health care trend: Better shop around

Posted On Dec 25 2019 by

first_imgLOS ANGELES – The future of health coverage may look more like the Home Shopping Network than “E.R.” In a fast-growing trend that advocates call consumer-driven health care, buyers can choose tailor-made coverage and higher deductibles from insurers that let them be choosier about doctors, drugs and hospitals in an attempt to curb the soaring cost of health insurance. For example, if buyers or their dependents don’t intend to get pregnant, they can eliminate maternity coverage. Families can cut premiums by taking on a $2,000 annual deductible and then shopping around for the most affordable care. “All the big insurers are now offering consumer-directed products,” said Caroline Steinberg, vice president of trends analysis for the American Hospital Association in Washington, D.C. Of the 186 million Americans who have health insurance, only about 3 million people are enrolled in consumer-driven plans. However, that number is expected to increase as politicians, insurers and employers struggle to hold down health care costs that have outpaced inflation for years. With the annual cost of insuring a family now about $10,000, many employers no longer offer health coverage. Only 66 percent of full-time workers at private firms have employer-sponsored plans, compared with 80 percent in 1989, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Garamendi specifically targeted a plan unveiled last year by Blue Cross. Marketed as Tonik, it’s geared to people under 30 who are just starting out in their careers. By design, it does not include maternity benefits but offers catastrophic coverage, along with limited dental and vision care. Blue Cross research showed the target market didn’t want maternity coverage, said Robert Alaniz, a spokesman for Wellpoint Inc., parent company of Blue Cross. Eliminating it made the plan more affordable, he said. “It’s not what government thinks you need. It’s not what we, the plan (provider), think you need, but it’s what you, the consumer, told us,” he said. Hoi Wong, 29, of San Francisco chose Tonik after going to work for a small firm that doesn’t offer health coverage but gives employees $200 a month to buy their own. Wong pays $98 a month in premiums. Her annual deductible is $1,500. Outside of an emergency, she intends to use the plan mainly for regular checkups and for its vision and dental benefits. “I actually don’t go visit a doctor very much,” she said. “I try to eat healthy and try to have regular patterns in life and get my eight hours of sleep.” Wong designs strollers and car seats but isn’t interested in maternity coverage. “I don’t plan to have a family in the very near future,” she said. Consumer-driven plans are based on the theory that people who must pay more upfront in deductibles will shop around for the most affordable health care. For some patients that could mean using generic rather than brand-name drugs or taking an aspirin before rushing to an emergency room after a sports injury. Tax-exempt health savings accounts recently permitted by Congress allow people to bank their own money toward the deductibles. Giant health care provider UnitedHealth Group Inc. is betting the consumer-driven approach will help remedy the ailing system. The firm, based in Minnetonka, Minn., has applied the philosophy to its own products and paid more than $800 million to buy two companies with pioneering experience in consumer-driven plans, UnitedHealth spokesman Mark Lindsay said. “The single best agent to control health care costs is the individual,” he said. “Unfortunately, today they are disconnected from that reality.” Analysts aren’t sure how much impact the approach will have on costs. They pointed out that most consumer-driven plans must still cover expensive care such as debilitating accidents and diseases. They also said the average person simply doesn’t have enough information or expertise to make informed choices about the complex system and won’t want to pick and choose when their health is on the line. “To say consumers want this – do they really know what they’re buying?” asked Hal Luft, professor of health economics and health policy at the University of California, San Francisco. Now the high-deductible plans are “mostly appealing to the healthy, wealthy and wise,” added Jon Gabel, vice president of the Center for Health System Change. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “It’s a bit of an experiment,” she said. “At this point, I don’t think we know whether it’s going to work or not.” Critics insist the high deductibles are merely a way for insurers to shift more costs to workers. They also point out that the plans don’t require insurers to cut either their profits or prices. California Insurance Commissioner John Garamendi, a supporter of government-mandated coverage, has called the trend a “death spiral” for health care. He argued that it will cherry-pick the youngest, healthiest and richest people while forcing traditional managed care plans to charge more to cover the sickest patients, as well as maternity and obstetrics care. The result will be more uninsured people, he said. “It’s not consumer-driven at all,” Garamendi said. “What it is is market-driven by insurance companies, … segmenting the population into high-cost, high-risk segments and low-cost, low-risk segments.” last_img read more

Cisco to build R215m innovation centre

Posted On Dec 19 2019 by

first_img17 September 2008Multinational information communication technology (ICT) company Cisco Systems is to invest R215-million in developing the Cisco Innovation Hub Technology Centre in Pretoria.The 3 000 square metre centre, to be based at the Innovation Hub, will become home to the company’s various ICT initiatives, which are expected to add R1-billion to South Africa’s gross domestic product over an initial five-year period.The initiative includes an InnovationLab, a global talent acquisition programme, the Cisco Netversity, an entrepreneurship institute and a software development programme.Cisco Systems South Africa MD Steve Midgley said the investment was worthwhile, seeing that emerging markets provided the biggest opportunity for social and economic transformation.“South Africa is on the brink of entering a broadband boom,” Midgley said in a statement this week.“Cisco is investing in this initiative now to ensure that when the broadband revolution really kicks off, South Africa has enough of the right kind of skills, solutions creation capabilities and intellectual property to leverage the many benefits broadband will bring to the country and help leap-frog other economies.”Advanced technology incubationAs an advanced technology incubation centre, the facility will foster and develop skills, intellectual property, entrepreneurship, and solution development capabilities in South Africa’s ICT sector.This includes the development of intellectual property, the creation of design and network engineers, local software development, state-of-the-art networking communications laboratories and access to business guidance.The centre will also provide a showcase for venture capital providers looking to fund solutions or businesses that may result from the centre’s operations.Cisco added that it expects the centre to have far-reaching implications, and to create a minimum of 200 direct and 800 indirect jobs.ICT initiativesVarious ICT initiatives that Cisco will conduct from the centre include: Operated by a team of consulting and development entrepreneurs, the InnovationLab has been running since the beginning of 2008 and focuses on developing technology solutions to solve common business challenges in the South African market.  With a growing shortage of skilled networking professionals in South Africa and around the world, the global talent acquisition programme seeks to create high level network engineers at a Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) level in an accelerated pace.  The Netversity meanwhile aims to create a minimum of 150 network design engineers for the local market, at Cisco’s cost, through an experiential architecture and design training programme.  Cisco aims to train 250 entrepreneurs through its entrepreneur institute, with the first intake of students graduating before the end of 2008. The institute is a non-profit endeavour that will teach entrepreneurial skills with a curriculum that covers various aspects such as starting, growing and tech-enabling a business.  As part of the software development programme, Cisco will invest in software engineers to address the demand for software development skills in South Africa. Located at the centre, the programme will focus on developing applications for Cisco’s own business requirements. “This will change the way people live and work – giving the public sector and business the opportunity to gain significant efficiencies, to drive productivity enhancements, to achieve cost reductions and to gain access to new market segments within their existing business models,” said Midgley.“It will also create an enabling platform from which new business models can be created.”SAinfo reporterlast_img read more
