Advertisement Advertisement Login/Register With: Facebook TORONTO — Mirvish Productions says it’s cancelling plans to attempt the world’s largest screech-in at a Toronto performance of “Come From Away” due to complaints from people in Newfoundland.The theatre company said earlier this week that it wanted to celebrate the province’s unique culture by staging “a big group screech-in” at a performance of the Newfoundland-set musical, “Come From Away.”Since then, Mirvish says “many people in Newfoundland” took exception to the ceremony occurring outside of the province that created the tradition. A screech-in is a traditional Newfoundland welcoming ceremony that involves downing a type of rum, kissing a codfish and reciting a short speech full of local expressions.Mirvish says it has heard the concerns “loud and clear” and apologizes.Instead, Mirvish says it will send one couple from each of the four performances running July 5 to July 7 to Gander, N.L., to experience an official screech-in on Newfoundland soil.“In our enthusiasm we took a misstep and we apologize,” Mirvish said Friday in a statement.“Come From Away,” written and created by Canadian couple Irene Sankoff and David Hein, tells the true story of how the tiny town of Gander welcomed more than 7,000 stranded airline passengers after 9/11.Mirvish had planned to enlist the entire audience following the evening performance July 6 at the 1,000-seat Elgin Theatre, saying every audience member would get a small fake plastic cod to kiss and a shot to drink at the end of the show. The shot options were to be real screech or ginger ale.Brian Mosher, a former Gander teacher/broadcaster who inspired the character of Janice Mosher in the musical, was set to officiate and have a bag of soil from the province during the ceremony to make it legitimate, said Mirvish.After the ceremony, participants were to receive certificates saying they’re honorary Newfoundlanders.The formal ceremony largely evolved in the 1970s as a form of entertainment for tourists.Some consider the screech-in a manufactured tradition, but folklorist Philip Hiscock argues its roots go farther back, to informal guest ceremonies in the 1940s and initiation rituals performed on sealing vessels and other ships.The Canadian Press LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement Twitter
Paul Godfrey, chief executive of Postmedia Network Canada Corp., prepares to speak at a press conference in Toronto, Monday, Oct. 6, 2014. Postmedia says it plans to reduce its salary costs by 20 per cent through voluntary staff buyouts, adding that layoffs are possible if its target isn’t met. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Hannah Yoon Postmedia plans to cut salary expenses as quarterly loss nearly doubles by Aleksandra Sagan, The Canadian Press Posted Oct 20, 2016 10:57 am MDT Last Updated Oct 21, 2016 at 7:20 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – Postmedia said Thursday it plans to reduce its salary costs by 20 per cent through voluntary staff buyouts, adding that layoffs are possible if that target isn’t met as it announced net losses that nearly doubled in its most recent quarter.Staff have until Nov. 8 to apply for the buyouts, the company said, with reductions coming from all levels and operations.The newspaper chain announced the cost-cutting measure as it reported a fourth-quarter loss of $99.4 million or 35 cents per diluted share. That’s up from a loss of $54.1 million or 19 cents per diluted share for the same period a year ago.Revenue for the quarter ended Aug. 31 totalled $198.7 million, down from $230.2 million. Postmedia attributed most of the revenue loss to a 21.3 per cent drop in print advertising and eight per cent fall in print circulation.For its full financial year, Postmedia said it lost $352.5 million or $1.25 per share on $877.2 million in revenue. In the previous year, it lost $263.4 million or $1.98 per diluted share on $750.3 million in revenue.“We must accelerate the transformation of our business operations to align our cost structure with our revenue outlook,” CEO Paul Godfrey told analysts and media in a conference call.Under the buyout plan, employees are eligible to receive three weeks’ pay for every year worked, up to a maximum of 78 weeks, said Paul Morse, president of Unifor Local 87-M, which represents some Postmedia employees. The offer is capped at $150,000, he said, and will be paid as a salary continuance, rather than a single payment.About 4,000 full-time equivalent employees work for Postmedia, said Phyllise Gelfand, the company’s vice-president of communications, in an email. That’s down from 4,733 as of Aug. 31, 2015, according to company documents.The newspaper industry has struggled with declining ad revenue for years, but 2016 has been particularly brutal for the business.But the president of CWA Canada, a union representing about 6,000 media workers, said Postmedia is using declining print advertising as a scapegoat for the financial problems caused by its large debt.“The real problem with Postmedia is its debt,” Martin O’Hanlon said in a statement.Postmedia completed a restructuring earlier this month that reduced its total debt by about $307 million and its annual cash interest expense by approximately $50 million.In January, Postmedia cut 90 jobs and merged newsrooms in four cities, but maintained separate newspapers in each location following its acquisition of Sun Media’s English-language newspapers and digital properties last year.Those layoffs were part of cost-cutting measures as the company aimed to reduce its annual operating expenses by $80 million. Postmedia said Thursday it’s just $5 million shy of reaching that goal, which it expects to do by the end of the first quarter of its 2017 financial year.The anticipated buyouts or eventual layoffs are “incremental” to that target, said chief financial officer Doug Lamb during the conference call.Godfrey told analysts and the media when the debt restructuring plan was announced that the company still had work to do to operate in a challenging industry — a sentiment he echoed Thursday.“While the debt burden has been significantly reduced, we continue to operate in a very disrupted industry,” he said. “Competitive pressures and revenue challenges persist.”He said the company is trying new initiatives to bring in revenue.This year, the company struck deals withthree financial technology companies, Agility Forex Ltd., Mogo Finance Technology Inc. and FundThrough, for revenue in exchange for ad space.Follow @AleksSagan on Twitter.Note to readers: This is a corrected story.

“Please note that not all the allegations have been fully verified and many are still in the preliminary assessment phase,” he told journalists at UN Headquarters in New York, adding that these quarterly updates are part of the Secretary-General’s initiative to “increasing transparency” on this issue.Of those 64 allegations, six involved peacekeepers, 33 involved personnel from UN agencies, funds and programmes and another 25 concerned non-UN staff working with organisations implementing UN programmes.Most of the reported incidents – 30 of them – allegedly took place in 2018; another 15 are said to have happened in the years going back to 2015. The date is unknown for 19 of the allegations reported.Out of 77 reported victims, the overwhelming majority are women (42) and girls (24), while two men and one boy also report having suffered from SEA. The age or gender of the remaining eight survivors is unknown.The vast majority of them, 55, suffered from what is categorized as sexual exploitation, defined as “any actual or attempted abuse of a position of vulnerability, differential power, or trust, for sexual purposes, including, but not limited to, profiting monetarily, socially or politically from the sexual exploitation of another”.Another 16 are considered to have suffered from incidents categorized as sexual abuse, defined as “the actual or threatened physical intrusion of a sexual nature, whether by force or under unequal or coercive conditions”.Another four were classified as of an unknown nature, and two were unsubstantiated following an investigation.The alleged perpetrators are 66 men, one woman, and two individuals whose gender is unknown.Of the 39 allegations related to UN personnel, one was not substantiated, 22 are at various stages of investigation, and 16 are under preliminary assessment to determine whether there is sufficient information to investigate.Regarding the 25 allegations relating to non-UN implementing organisation staff, two have been substantiated through an investigation and the perpetrators were dismissed by their employer. One allegation was not substantiated, 14 are at various stages of investigation, seven under preliminary assessment and one allegation was closed at the request of the victim.“The efforts to implement the Secretary-General’s strategy to combat sexual exploitation and abuse continue to be strengthened,” said Spokesperson Dujarric.In September, a Circle of Leadership, embodying world leaders’ commitment to eradicating SEA across the UN system was launched. As of today, 49 heads of State and Government, 22 heads of UN entities and 72 global leaders have joined the movement. In addition, over the past few weeks, an electronic tool called “Clear Check,” developed to screen UN staff dismissed as a result of substantiated SEA allegations, or who resigned or were separated during an investigation, started being rolled out across the entire UN system.
Back in November 2009 Epic Games decided to make its Unreal Development Kit completely free to use. That way it could be picked up by an individual or indie team with little to no money to spend on their first project.Epic is in the business of making money, though, so while the engine was free to use some royalty payments kicked in after a time. Non-commercial use remains free forever, but if you sold a game Epic would start claiming a 25% royalty after said game had accrued more than $5,000 in revenue.AdChoices广告While it still allowed a developer to make some serious cash with a popular game, $5,000 was still quite a low threshold for royalty payments. So yesterday Mark Rein, CEO of Epic, announced on the Unreal Development Kit forums that the threshold for royalties had been lifted. Now instead of $5,000 a game can earn $50,000 before Epic want a cut.In the post Rein explains:We’re really excited about folks making some amazing things with UDK and we realize that a lot of you are just started in the business so not having to pay royalties on your first $50,000 should help you get a financial footing toward building a quality game development business. Developers using the Unreal Engine are understandably very happy about this news, which some are appropriately stating is “epic”.Read more at Unreal Development Kit forums, via Gamesindustry.bizMatthew’s OpinionEpic clearly see this free access to the Unreal Engine as an investment in the future. Those developers using it today for free may be paying customers in the future with large teams of developers requiring a license.The threshold increase also makes sense from a long-term viability standpoint. If a small developer starts losing 25% of its income past $5,000 then the chances of them growing are cut. Give them $50,000 per game, though, and there may be money in the bank to fund a new, and bigger project. In the end Epic end up with more paying customers who have grown out of this program.

The group, called Free Hot Soup Kansas City, consists of volunteers who had prepared vats of chili, foil-wrapped sandwiches and vats of soup to hand out to the homeless population.They told reporters the bleach did not deter some of the homeless from attempting to salvage the food afterward.Organizers argue they should not have to get permits to serve food because they are not a food establishment or a not-for-profit group. According to the Kansas City Star, they say they are “just friends who want to help people.” KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WSVN) — Health department officials in one Missouri city poured bleach on food meant to be served to homeless people — because volunteers didn’t get permits.KCTV reports inspectors simultaneously shut down large picnics across Kansas City on Sunday, Nov. 5th, dumping all of the prepared food into bags and soaking them in bleach so no one could sift through to eat any of it.Health department officials said the food could have put people at risk.“E. coli or salmonella or listeria can grow in the food,” department director Rex Archer told Fox 32. “And then you give that to homeless people who are more vulnerable, they will end up in the ER and even die from that exposure.” So do I need to get a permit and have proper food handling training to have a picnic with my friends in a city park?Of course not.See how stupid KC looks on this one?— CB🐧⚓ (@CharlotteBrecks) November 6, 2018Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

Check names of banks placed under RBI’s Prompt Corrective ActionIANSEleven of India’s 21 state-run banks are now under the scanner of Reserve Bank of India (RBI) over the issue of non-performing assets (NPA). These 11 public sector banks (PSBs) are placed under the RBI’s Prompt Corrective Action (PCA), which is intended to encourage banks to improve operational efficiency.PCA generally restricts lending activities of the banks. Capital adequacy ratio (CAR), net NPAs, and return on assets (RoA) of the banks are examined by the central bank to put a bank under PCA. Since April last year, 11 banks have been put under the corrective action framework.Banks put under the PCA framework are:Allahabad BankUnited Bank of IndiaCorporation BankIDBI BankUCO BankBank of IndiaCentral Bank of IndiaIndian Overseas BankOriental Bank of CommerceDena BankBank of MaharashtraGovernment sources reportedly also confirmed that more banks are expected to be brought under the PCA framework because of their deteriorating performance.According to the rating agency ICRA, five banks that could be brought under the PCA are Andhra Bank, Punjab National Bank, Canara Bank, Union Bank and Punjab & Sind Bank and these PSBs might join the PCA list in the near future.According to an Indian Express report, small and medium type of enterprises will face the cash crunch due to the central bank’s PCA move. “Since the PCA framework restricts the amount of loans banks can extend, this will definitely put pressure on credit being made available to companies especially the MSMEs. Large companies have access to the corporate bond market so they may not be impacted immediately,” a senior banker told Indian Express. Bankers feel that if more state-owned banks are brought under PCA, it will impact the credit availability for the MSME segment, the report added.
The ongoing enterprise/business/startup saga is: how to improve efficiency by reducing costs and overhead without sacrificing performance? I deal with this on a daily basis. Trade-offs are inherent in any business decision-making process, and it is often through new developments (i.e., technology) that the optimal solution arises. I’m an early adopter for these exact reasons. So much new tech is constantly being built to create efficiencies and support business processes.For enterprises in industries ranging from digital identity verification to supply chain tracking, that answer has frequently resulted in a specific iteration of blockchains: enterprise blockchains.They are more attuned to conventional business models and are subject to many of the same liabilities as business-operated software systems, such as a cloud-based database network. For example, a consortium of banks leveraging a blockchain as a settlement layer. See: the IBM-powered CLS that was launched last year.Facebook’s recently launched Libra network is another example of a consortium-based network, with the underlying blockchain serving as the thread that connects the firms participating. Enterprise-oriented startups have made significant headway in recent months, so what exactly are the areas where they can make an economic impact? Digital identity verification and securityLook no further than recent Facebook scandals or what seems like an endless barrage of data impropriety among major tech firms to understand the significance of mitigating their control over user data. But how do you reconcile user data sovereignty with identity systems?Several firms believe that enterprise blockchains can provide the solution.For example, MaxonRow is an identity dependent mainchain that allows token issuance, and an identity chain which confers control of user data directly to the user. Users can selectively reveal their data to third-parties and use of the system can be governed using whitelisting and hash-based identifiers. This allows identity built into the blockchain, without worrying about third-parties gaining access to personal information. Importantly, MaxonRow ensures the ecosystem will be able to comply with government KYC/AML requirements. Their identity verification system enables governments or regulators to act as the ultimate arbiter of identity validity and allows enforcement and audit when necessary. Blockchain-based identity solutions have garnered significant attention for several years, in large part a consequence of their congruency with cryptography and new technologies like IPFS that leverage hash-based identifiers. However, identity solutions based on permissionless networks such as Ethereum are sure to rub governments the wrong way, as they could be wielded to conceal information on illegal actors.Some digital identity services, such as Civic, are built on Ethereum, but their traction has faltered so far, and enterprise-based systems seem poised to grab more regulatory support.Digital banking and open finance Despite the rising narrative of decentralized finance (DeFi) in the broader cryptocurrency space, DeFi presents some problems and faces some critical hurdles to its widespread adoption. For example, the popular over-collateralized lending services, MakerDAO, saw its stability fee rate near 20 percent following the inability of its stablecoin, Dai, to maintain its 1:1 peg with the USD. A product of its inability to scale, MakerDAO highlighted how with only a subset of users within an esoteric field, DeFi products struggle to remain operational in times of high user numbers. This is aptly demonstrated by services such as BlockFi, which is a hybrid of conventional credit systems and DeFi, that has emerged as popular alternatives to MakerDAO and is not subject to scaling woes. Similarly, Mt Pelerin, a Swiss-based digital banking startup, is bridging DeFi with the conventional banking system. The goal is to bring an entire bank’s balance sheet on-chain, creating a blockchain-based banking ecosystem, but under the umbrella of meeting government regulatory requirements.Though built on a permissionless network like Ethereum, Mt Pelerin is an authorized financial intermediary in Switzerland and can help expedite the operational process of issuing tokenized assets to the public for small and medium enterprises and other firms wishing to raise funds. Other initiatives, such as Ripple’s RippleNet product for global payments and liquidity, are more attuned to the needs of conventional banking requirements, based on the XRP token. It is uncertain at this point which path (i.e., permissioned versus permissionless) will come to dominate the transition towards more open financial products, but it seems that solutions bridging the old with the new are positioned the best. Supply chain trackingLogistical networks are massive, convoluted endeavors that span global consortiums of businesses and require minute details on the timing and conditions of product shipping. As a result, blockchains have emerged as an ideal solution for increasing efficiency and transparency in the industry.From Accenture reports on the effectiveness of blockchain-based supply chain tracking in the food sector to the rise of enterprise networks like VeChain, the compatible fit of blockchains and logistics is manifest. In particular, enterprise blockchains have gained an advantage over permissionless solutions so far. For example, VeChain’s hierarchical governance system is representative of a conventional business, and its blockchain acts as the shared ledger for validating and tracking products (i.e., luxury fashion) across the globe. Numerous entities can join and participate, but they undergo a verification process, and specific sets of data are made accessible to select portions of the network. Tracking food, retail products or medical supplies via a consortium (i.e., enterprise) blockchain empowers businesses to reduce transaction overhead. They can even monitor the real-time metrics and environmental conditions of products using technologies such as NFC and RFID tags that upload hash-identified data directly to the blockchain.Anonymity technologies and better scalability solutions may make permissionless networks a viable medium for tracking high-value assets in the logistical field one day, but for now, enterprise blockchains seem to have the advantage.Enterprise and public blockchains come with different value propositions. In terms of pure cryptocurrencies, public blockchains are the undisputed leader, primarily deriving from their ability to mediate trust across an open network of participants.Conversely, enterprise networks are more of a compromise between the underlying technology of cryptocurrencies, blockchain and the standard regulatory and business requirements of contemporary times. Camps supporting both sides have compelling arguments, and we will likely see an ecosystem where both types of networks can flourish side by side.

LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Jordan Peele has been dreaming of his Oscar moment since he was 13, but now that it’s happened, he can hardly believe it.The 38-year-old received Academy Award nominations last week for best picture, director and original screenplay for his directorial debut, “Get Out.” The star of the horror/satire, Daniel Kaluuya, was also nominated for best actor.“Get Out” may be Peele’s breakthrough, but the actor, writer, director and producer has been honing his skills for more than a dozen years. He started getting awards notice in 2008, when he shared in an Emmy nomination for a sketch he wrote for MADtv. He was nominated seven more times for his contributions to “Key & Peele,” the hit Comedy Central sketch show he created with Keegan-Michael Key. Peele also co-wrote and co-starred (with Key) in the 2016 action-comedy “Keanu.”He said having his work recognized by the film academy has given him “faith in my voice.”“It’s like jet fuel,” Peele said in an interview after last week’s nominations. “It makes me want to make as many movies that I can in my life.”Peele’s comments have been edited for clarity and brevity.___AP: So how does it feel to be a triple Academy Award nominee?Peele: Well, I’m not used to hearing yet. It’s a really overwhelming thing to try and process. I’m trying understand how I got here from this time last year not knowing if this movie was going to really work or really not work.AP: What a difference a year makes.Peele: I’m definitely feeling the love and feeling with joy and honour of this accomplishment. But it has been a bittersweet year knowing that it has not been a great one for everybody.AP: How was Oscar nominations morning for you?Peele: I woke up a few minutes after the announcements were made. I was just getting really great texts from just about everybody I’ve ever met. And my (6-month-old) son slept through the night, so that was also huge. So it was like kind of a party at my house… Both he and I with our greatest accomplishments to date on the same morning.AP: Did you allow yourself to consider this possibility when you were writing sketches for “Key & Peele?”Peele: I’ve been dreaming about this moment since I was 13. I’ve gone through times where I believed in it and times when I didn’t believe in it. So to have it happen, it comes with a really important lesson and realization for me which is that it’s bigger than me. It’s an important thing for a lot of people and the people who supported the film and the people out there who have the same dream but feel like they can’t do it for whatever reason.AP: Audiences loved “Get Out,” but does the academy love feel different?Peele: Yes, it does mean something different. I didn’t know that it would, but now that this has arrived, I’m reminded of when I watched Whoopi Goldberg win her Oscar for “Ghost.” And I remember she sent a message out in her speech that was for me. She said, ‘Don’t let anything stop you. If you want this, if you have a dream, follow that dream and you can achieve it.’ And I’ll always remember that. So hopefully that’s the message that this sends to other young artists of colour and women and people who … feel like they’re outsiders and won’t be won’t be allowed into this industry or won’t be accepted. Hopefully they can sort of feel some of that message too.AP: Is the recognition even sweeter given that this is an unconventional film with a lot to say?Peele: Making this film, putting it out was very scary. I thought that it was very possible that the world wouldn’t be ready; that they would reject it or that it would not be received. But I knew that I loved it. I knew that it was something that needed to be said. And so the fact that it was scary is kind of how I knew it was important and that was it was my duty as an artist to face that fear and really risk it all.___For full coverage of awards season, visit: https://apnews.com/tag/AwardsSeason FILE – In this Feb. 9, 2017 file photo, Jordan Peele poses for a portrait in Los Angeles to promote his directorial debut, “Get Out.” Peele received Academy Award nominations for best picture, director and original screenplay.
