Mitsubishi Heavy to Restructure Its Shipbuilding Business

first_imgzoom Japan’s Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) is considering to restructure its shipbuilding activities and enter local partnerships due to a low demand for new ships, Bloomberg reports. The decision about the restructuring is likely to be announced in July, Bloomberg cited Eiji Matsubara, MHI’s spokesperson, as saying.In October 2016, MHI revealed plans to cut production of large passenger ships amid financial losses accrued from the construction of Aida Cruises two ships, AIDAprima and AIDAperla.What is more, MHI’s move is said to be triggered also by a plunge of 80 percent in new shipbuilding orders recorded last year as ship owners refrained from ordering amid tonnage oversupply.MHI also unveiled plans in late-August 2016 to launch discussions toward forming new alliances with three compatriot shipbuilders – Imabari Shipbuilding, Oshima Shipbuilding and Namura Shipbuilding.With this move, MHI said it would integrate strengths in shipbuilding technology and engineering with the three partners’ manufacturing capabilities and cost competitiveness, boosting ship development capabilities, enhancing negotiation response, and enabling further cost reductions.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

Business Innovation in Rural Nova Scotia

first_imgBusiness and community leaders from across the province will gather in Yarmouth today, Oct. 23, to celebrate entrepreneurship and innovation in Nova Scotia’s businesses. About 200 Nova Scotians will attend Innovation Fête at Nova Scotia Community College’s (NSCC) Burridge campus. Yarmouth entrepreneur Scott Dauphinee will share his entrepreneurial story at the event. Mr. Dauphinee and his partners have developed a recyclable lobster trap, an innovation that has the potential to save fishers considerable time and money and significantly reduce waste. They are also choosing to build their business at Ignite Labs, a new business hub located on NSCC’s Burridge campus. Since opening this summer, Ignite Labs has become a popular spot for entrepreneurs and innovators in southwest Nova Scotia. Seven resident companies are already working out of the new hub, with other partners like Digital Nova Scotia and Mash-up Labs offering evening and weekend training sessions to the broader community. Ignite Labs also connects with NSCC’s educational programs and local business associations, creating more bridges between the post-secondary system, startup companies and more established businesses in southwest Nova Scotia. “The flurry of activity happening in this region is really exciting,” said Doug Jones, entrepreneur and executive director of Ignite Labs. “Government, post-secondary institutions, business associations and our startup community are coming together to drive innovation and its working.” “Nova Scotia has great economic potential and we need to keep working together to grow our economy, increase the number of high-growth companies and create jobs,” said Zach Churchill, Minister of Education and Early Childhood Development on behalf of Business Minister Geoff MacLellan. “By working together, we can build a stronger economic foundation for people to live, work and do business here, for the benefit all Nova Scotians.” In June, government announced a new series of partnerships with the Nova Scotia Community College, Cape Breton University, Cape Breton Partnership, Halifax Partnership and Dalhousie University to drive innovation, increase the number of high-growth companies and build stronger networks of support for entrepreneurs across the province. Government also continues to create the conditions for more businesses to start and grow by removing barriers to economic growth, including recently passing legislation that will make the cost of incorporating a new company in Nova Scotia the lowest in the country as of Jan. 1.last_img read more

Be ready for economic backlash Vajpayee told me before nuke tests Yaswant

first_imgNew Delhi: A few days before India conducted nuclear tests on May 11, 1998, the then prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee asked his finance minister Yaswant Sinha to remain prepared to deal with backlash from the world powers, especially in the economic field. Sinha was summoned to Vajpayee’s residence one morning in early May 1998. When he reached there, he was taken to the prime minister’s bedroom. I guessed immediately that what he was about to tell me was not only important but also highly confidential, Sinha recalls, adding Vajpayee then broke a piece of stunning news that left him feeling both proud and shaken. Also Read – How a psychopath killer hid behind the mask of a devout laity! I have decided to go for nuclear tests in the next few days. It is a highly secret operation because the world powers are not going to like it. They may take punitive action against us, especially in the economic field. So, we must be prepared to meet any challenge the move would throw up on the economic front. I thought I should warn you in advance, so that you are not taken by surprise when it happens, Vajpayee told Sinha. It took Sinha some time to absorb the full import of what Vajpayee had told him so calmly. Also Read – Encounter under way in Pulwama, militant killed Sinha recollects this incident in his autobiography Relentless , which is scheduled to be launched on Monday. As expected, all hell broke loose after the world realised what India had done. Almost every major country in the world condemned India for the tests and imposed various forms of sanctions, he writes. The Vajpayee government was determined to meet the challenge of sanctions head on. There was no question of succumbing to them or surrendering. When the sanctions started hurting the imposing countries themselves, more than India, and after our compulsion was explained to the sanctioning nations, they started withdrawing them one by one, the book, published by Bloomsbury, says. Sinha also mentions how Vajpayee reacted when Bush Administration, in the wake of the American invasion of Iraq in March 2003, was very keen that India send a large contingent of troops to Iraq and was putting tremendous pressure to do so. Some respected columnists in the media were also clamouring for it. There were some in the government as well, mainly L K Advani and Jaswant Singh, who also thought that we should accept the US request as it would dramatically upgrade our bilateral relationship, he says. However, Vajpayee kept his own counsel and refused to be pressured. Sonia Gandhi had written a letter to Vajpayee opposing any such move, and he promptly called her for a meeting. She came, accompanied by Pranab Mukherjee, Manmohan Singh and Natwar Singh, and Vajpayee listened to them with great interest. He also consulted the BJP’s NDA partners on this issue, besides having a discussion in a meeting of the Union Cabinet, Sinha writes. Thus, the US request was not acceded to, based precisely on such a consensus, he says. Sinha chronicles his journey from modest beginnings to the highest corridors of power. He also mentions about his early days, his stints as an IAS officer in various capacities and his role in state and national politics. From JP and Chandra Shekhar to VP Singh, Vajpayee and Narendra Modi, the book gives an insight into the rise and fall of leaders and ideologies that have charted a unique course for the country’s democracy amid fierce personal and political strife.last_img read more

It wasn’t clear if they were all together, said Smith, a Juno and Canadian Country Music Award winner.“I got a sense as the show got near the end that there might have been a group of people that were there to cause trouble,” he said. “I’ve been touring for 16 years, and I have a pretty good sense of the crowd and what the energy coming back at me is, and something was off.”He saw two audience members fighting early in the show and said they were promptly dealt with by security guards. That in itself isn’t all that unusual, he added.“It was some aggression between dudes,” he said. “That’s par for the course in any town.“As soon as there was a break in-between songs I made a comment like, ‘Hey, let’s make that the last one to happen tonight, let’s have fun tonight.”‘Smith said all went well until the end of his encore, when he felt a shift in the room and “everybody went charging.” He saw people hitting each other and girls getting punched in the face.

The Security Council today extended for another year the mandate of the European Union Stabilization Force (EUFOR) tasked with ensuring continued compliance with the 1995 Dayton Peace Agreement ending the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The European Union has assumed responsibility for the peacekeeping operation since 2004 when it took over from the NATO-led stabilization force (SFOR). As it unanimously adopted resolution 1785, the Council also authorized the continued presence of a NATO headquarters through which the bloc assists in the implementation of the Dayton Agreement in conjunction with EUFOR.In addition, the 15-member body authorized Member States to take all measures to defend the EUFOR and NATO presence and to assist both organizations in carrying out their missions. It also recognized the right of both EUFOR and the NATO presence to defend themselves from attack or threat of attack.Also by the text, the Council reiterated that “the primary responsibility for the further successful implementation of the Peace Agreement lies with the authorities in Bosnia and Herzegovina themselves,” and underlined the need for their full cooperation with the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), including the surrender for trial or apprehension of all persons indicted by the court. read more

4 Things Data is Not and Where to Focus Instead

first_img Register Now » 5 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Imagine this scenario. Jane blinks and a smart car pulls up, knowing it’s time for her doctor’s appointment. No, the smart car isn’t connected to Jane’s eyes, but through refined data, a company like Google or Uber can know when your next medical checkup is due, help you book an appointment with the doctor and send a smart car to pick you up.This is the age of data, where the relationship between consumers, advertising agencies and service providers can be strengthened. While we’re still far from an utopian world — where companies have acquired enough intelligence to monetize and use data mined from our lives to allow their machines to interact on an interpersonal level with humans — it’s not too out of reach.Related: The Big Deal About Big Data For Small BusinessesAccording to research, each person will generate around 1.7 megabytes of new data every second by 2020. There’s value in big data, and everybody wants a piece of the pie. But big data is just part of a huge process. Here’s what data is not and how companies should aim to recoup their investment in big data.1. Data is not cash.Unlike ad clicks that instantly turns a publisher’s or distributor’s efforts into cold cash, data is not cash. While companies are hungry for more data, there’s already an abundance of data. Data generated is said to reach 44 trillion gigabytes annually by 2020. Extracting the investments venture capitialists have poured into startups in the name of big data is where the job lies.When your company finds itself at an intersection between providing value and impressing investors, data can make the job of your CEO a lot easier. However, your big data must go through the process where the chief data officer directly gives the CEO recommendations on how best to provide real value while generating revenue from multiple touchpoints made possible by big data.When there’s an abundance of data, getting value from it lies in the job that real humans still have to do.2. Data is an unprocessed raw material, not a finished product.Data is not useful unless translated and its value uncovered. The biggest issue with big data is management. Data management under this umbrella involves the following:Storage — As the volume of data a company acquires becomes bigger, it must address the issue of storage. How to keep data safe and protected will be of concern.Validating — Your data still needs to be validated. Processing — The job of the data management team will be to process and make sense of big data.Big data will need a focused team that is dedicated to processing data generated from IOTs, consumer behaviors and analytics. But the role of this team will be no mean feat as the team needs to make sense of the huge volume of data that will bombard them in real time. Hence, the question will shift from how big is the data being processed to how fast is the data being processed.Related: ‘Big Data’ Is No Longer Enough: It’s Now All About ‘Fast Data’3. Data is not a quick fix to underperforming marketing.You will often hear CEOs and CMOs declare big data as part of their strategy. They believe once the company is able to generate enough data through IOT and consumer behavior, investors will begin to smile again. This is a big promise albeit without any real execution plan to follow through.I hate to break it to you, but data in itself will not solve your performance problems. What will turn an underperforming business around is its approach to addressing key concerns through marketing initiatives supported by data. This means businesses should not be afraid to take the leap into new market segments. It’s a no-brainer. Think mobile and augmented reality.4. Data is not perfect.From instances where data presents false positives to incorrect findings, data is anything but perfect. Starting from the tools that transmit data to the models on which the analysis is based, it’s all prone to error. This is not a result of bad design, per se. Much of the blame lies on the fact that processing big data is a complex job.Related: Why Entrepreneurs Should Look Beyond Big DataIn a world where context is everything, validating big data is the most important aspect of data management. The best way to get good results from data analysis is to question every piece of information over and over again. By involving human elements in the data analysis and validation process, you can guarantee that future predictions based on big data are leading to real insights.  Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right.

Laptop ban protectionism hang over booming air travel industry

first_img CANCUN, Mexico — Air travel is heading for a bumper year, but global airline leaders meeting in Mexico are concerned about the impact of an escalating row over laptop bans and rising protectionism.Although the industry has overcome previous losses to notch up an eighth successive year of profit, the International Air Transport Association (IATA), which groups 275 airlines and meets from June 4-6, is now facing new challenges.The Geneva-based group is at odds with President Donald Trump over efforts to widen a partial U.S. and British security ban on laptops in cabin baggage.It is also worried about what it sees as protectionist rhetoric from Washington and Europe, saying this could temper growth in demand for air travel and freight.“You see that in Europe, you see that in the U.S. … Any barrier to borders, we consider as a threat,” IATA director general Alexandre de Juniac told reporters.IATA said on Thursday that passenger traffic rose 10.7 percent in April, the fastest rate of growth since April 2011.But restrictions on large electronic devices in the cabin, imposed in March on certain flights, were hitting traffic between the Middle East and the United States.Airlines and airports are waiting to see if the United States will extend the restrictions, with the Department of Homeland Security yet to announce a decision.More news:  Sunwing ready to launch Mazatlán-Quebec City direct this winterIATA has proposed more stringent passenger screening as an alternative and has joined European regulators in citing the fire risks of having many lithium-powered devices in the hold.“We recognize the (security) threat, we have no doubt about that, but we doubt the measure,” de Juniac said, adding the U.S. government now seemed in more of a “listening mode”.The IATA conference could hear concerns from Middle East carriers who believe they are unfairly targeted by the ban, with Emirates, Qatar Airways and Turkish Airlines among the most affected by restrictions on U.S.-bound flights from some Middle East and North African airports.U.S. officials have denied targeting any group of airlines or acting over anything other than pressing security concerns.PROFIT TO FALLUnited Airlines’ widely-criticized removal of a passenger from one of its planes and the British Airways computer meltdown over a holiday weekend, which stranded thousands of passengers, have highlighted other challenges the industry faces.“There are elements here that are specific to BA, but if airlines do not transform their operational systems and learn from this, then we could be seeing more such incidents,” Euromonitor travel project manager Nadejda Popova told Reuters.Such incidents emphasize the fine line between operational success and failure in an industry transporting 10 million people a day on razor-thin margins.More news:  Flights cancelled as British Airways hit by computer problemIATA will on Monday update forecasts that suggest the industry’s net profits will fall 16 percent to $29.8 billion this year after peaking in 2016, hit by fuel and labor costs.Although traffic is rising, this is partly driven by cheaper fares. But yields – or average revenue per passenger – look set to stabilize this year, IATA chief economist Brian Pearce said.“Strong volumes don’t necessarily equal strong profitability for the air transport industry, but it’s an encouraging start.”ForwardKeys, which analyses booking reservations, says global long-haul air travel bookings for June, July and August are 6.4 percent ahead of where they were last year.A surge in the popularity of low-cost long-haul travel will also weigh on IATA members, most of whom are national carriers and whose share of global traffic has already been eroded by local budget rivals outside the 72-year-old club.Highlighting the threat to traditional carriers, Norwegian Air Shuttle announced expansion plans from Rome and Iceland’s Wow Air said it would offer one-way fares between Europe and the U.S. from as little as $55. << Previous PostNext Post >> (Additional reporting by Alana Wise; editing by Alexander Smith) By: Victoria Bryan and Tim HepherSource: Reuters Tags: IATAcenter_img Friday, June 2, 2017 Share Laptop ban, protectionism hang over booming air travel industrylast_img read more

Housing Affordability Outlook Turns Pessimistic

first_img More Americans are losing faith that the housing crisis is really over. A new study released by the MacArthur Foundation has found that 81 percent of Americans believe that housing affordability is still a big problem, while more than two-thirds believe that it is more challenging today to secure such housing than it was for previous generations.“Too many Americans today believe the dream of a decent, stable home and the prospects for social mobility are receding,” said MacArthur President Julia Stasch. “Having a decent, stable, affordable home is about more than shelter: It is at the core of strong, vibrant, and healthy families and communities.”On the upside, 63 percent of those surveyed said they think much could be done to address problems of housing affordability, and that it should be addressed by the presidential candidates.But the overall dark mood of the survey is even darker than a year ago. MacArthur’s findings show that 6 percent more Americans than in 2015 think the housing crisis is still palpable. Forty-four percent believe we are still in the middle of the housing crisis and 19 percent believe the worst is yet to come. About 39 percent still call the situation “a serious problem.”Thursday’s report reverses what had been an upward trend in the number of people who felt the crisis was over. This year’s 29 percent of optimists is just above where numbers were in 2014, and down from last year’s 35 percent. And the pessimism is especially pronounced among renters. About 12 percent fewer renters and people 65 and older think the housing crisis is on the way out. This is the same decline among those with four-year college degrees. Along ethic lines, Hispanics are the most pessimistic since last year, with 13 fewer people thinking the worst is over.“Too many Americans today believe the dream of a decent, stable home and the prospects for social mobility are receding.” Julia Stasch, MacArthur Foundation PresidentAmong the surveys other findings, stable, responders said that affordable housing is a fundamental component of economic security for families, yet Americans find it increasingly unattainable. One-third of adults reported that they know someone who has or have themselves been evicted, foreclosed upon, or lost their housing in the past five years. And three in ten adults spend more than 30 percent of their monthly household income on their rent or mortgage payment.“It is understandable why so many Americans are still skeptical about the housing recovery,” said Geoffrey Garin, president of Hart Research Associates, which helped conduct the survey for MacArthur. “Stable, affordable housing equates to feelings of security and having achieved a middle-class lifestyle, yet as Americans continue to make sacrifices to keep their homes. Americans want their elected officials to focus more on the challenge of affordable housing, and they think the issue has not so far received the attention it deserves from the candidates.” in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News Share June 17, 2016 504 Views center_img Housing Affordability Housing Crisis MacArthur Foundation 2016-06-17 Seth Welborn Housing Affordability Outlook Turns Pessimisticlast_img read more
