Asian stocks poised for gains after late Wall Street dash

first_imgAsian stocks were set to open higher on Friday as a late Wall Street rally supported global sentiment although weak US data and uncertainty about a stimulus package in Washington have kept a lid on confidence.US stocks ended positive in choppy trade on Thursday, led by a dogged comeback in the technology sector, having initially sold off on higher than expected unemployment claims.“What we’ve seen for equity markets is there is quite a good deal of resilience,” said Tom Piotrowski, a market analyst at Australian broker CommSec. “Commentators like to stack up all of the negatives markets face, the US election being among them, but I think there is a sense that there is an underlying resilience in the market.” In early Asian trade, Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 futures rose 0.12 percent and Japan’s Nikkei 225 futures added 0.13 percent. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index futures rose 0.45 percent. MSCI’s gauge of stocks across the globe shed 0.43 percent.Democrats in the US House of Representatives are working on a US$2.2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package that could be voted on as soon as next week, with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reiterating she is ready to negotiate on it with the White House.The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 0.2 percent, the S&P 500 gained 0.30 percent and the Nasdaq Composite added 0.37 percent.The US dollar lost ground as investor confidence returned. The dollar index fell 0.056 percent.US Treasury yields fell, but moved off lows after a stronger-than-expected report on the housing sector.Oil prices were steady as a new wave of coronavirus cases in Europe led several countries to re-impose travel restrictions, offsetting a drop in US crude and fuel inventories.US crude recently fell 0.12 percent to $40.26 per barrel and Brent was flat.Topics :last_img read more

North Hollywood man sentenced to seven years for credit card scam

first_imgA North Hollywood man who stole the identities of college students to open credit card accounts and ran up more than $400,000 in charges was sentenced to more than seven years in federal prison, authorities said. Victor Igbineweka, 26, a Belgian national who is a Nigeria native, was sentenced yesterday in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles. He also was ordered to pay more than $411,000 in restitution to the banks he defrauded. On Sept. 6, Igbineweka pleaded guilty to charges of bank fraud, aggravated identity theft and money laundering. He admitted setting up a “front” business in North Hollywood called Veromege Paintings in order to target USC and UCLA students. Igbineweka’s store displayed mass-produced paintings in the front window to make the business appear legitimate, prosecutors said. But the business’ actual purpose was to obtain credit card merchant accounts so Igbineweka could accept payments by credit card, prosecutors said.

Igbineweka used pre-approved credit card applications to apply for cards in the names of the various college students, prosecutors said. After obtaining numerous credit cards in the names of dozens of students, Igbineweka charged more than $400,000 in transactions through his business. He then wired much of the money to Nigeria and other countries.

South Africa enters solar power world top 10

first_img SAinfo reporter The 75 MW Lesedi and 75 MW Letsatsi plants situated in the Northern Cape and Free State provinces respectively, built by a consortium lead by US company SolarReserve.The 75 MW Kalkbult solar plant near Petrusville in the Northern Cape, built by Norwegian-based company Scatec Solar with local partners.The 50 MW De Aar and 50 MW Droogfontein solar plants near De Aar and Kimberley in the Northern Cape, built and operated by a consortium led by British company Globeleq.The 22 MW Herbert and 11 MW Greefspan solar plants in the Northern Cape, built by US firm SunPower and owned by a joint venture between Spain’s AMDA energy and South Africa’s Alt-E Technologies. 8 July 2014 South Africa has now connected more than half a gigawatt of utility-scale solar power, moving into the world top 10 of countries harnessing renewable energy from the sun, according to figures released last month by Wiki-Solar.org. Wiki-Solar is a leading authority on the deployment of utility-scale solar power – photovoltaic (PV) power stations of 5 to 10 megawatts (MW) and above. The United States tops Wiki-Solar’s list of the top 10 markets for utility-scale solar power, with 349 solar plants together generating 6 498 MW, followed by China (4 607 MW), Germany (3 428 MW), India (1 897 MW), Spain (1 680 MW), the UK (1 523 MW), Italy (875 MW), Canada (714 MW), and France (677 MW). South Africa is in 10th spot, with 15 solar plants now contributing 503 MW to the country’s electricity grid. Most of these plant were built under the first round of the government’s renewable energy programme for private producers – and with several solar projects still under construction, and contracts for further projects having been signed, South Africa is likely to climb still further up Wiki-Solar’s rankings. In November, the Department of Energy signed agreements with 17 new preferred bidders in the third round of the programme, following the signing off of 47 projects in the first and second rounds, bringing to 64 the total number of renewable energy projects approved by the government since December 2011. Once they are all operational, the 64 projects – representing foreign and domestic investment of over R100-billion – will add around 3 900 megawatts of wind, solar photovoltaic and concentrating solar power to South Africa’s energy mix. And in his State of the Nation address last month, President Jacob Zuma said the government would push ahead with the fourth round of the programme so as to take advantage of wind, solar, biomass and other technologies that increased opportunities for rural development in the country. First-round solar projects that are delivering power to South Africa’s national grid include:last_img read more

A Bridge Over Passivhaus Waters

first_imgAs the Passivhaus standard becomes less of a novelty and more widely embraced by designers and builders in the U.S., it seemed logical that some of the standard’s advocates would create an independent forum for sharing news, project ideas, and technical expertise, and for generally promoting the standard.And that is exactly what happened. Members of Passive House California, New York Passive House, and Passive House North-West last year cofounded a group called American Passive House Network and, on January 16, announced the rollout of its website as a resource for all things Passivhaus. APHN membership is limited to regional Passivhaus groups — individuals and companies cannot be members — but everyone from curious consumers to industry professionals are welcome to use the site.Even though it is newly launched, the APHN site is already stocked with a healthy list of Passivhaus-related news items on its home page; a list of dozens of training sessions on its News & Events page; a breakdown of regional news on its Regional Focus page; links to Passivhaus blogs in the U.S., Canada, and Europe; a resource page for training; and contacts for both building and consultant certifications.Aiming to be useful – and apoliticalAPHN includes links to programs and resources offered by Passivhaus Institut, in Germany, and Passive House Institute U.S., in Urbana, Illinois, and naturally steers clear of the disputes that caused the two organizations to sever ties last year.“The goal of the network is to serve as a resource and communication hub for any and all existing and emerging regional Passive House organizations,” APHN said in announcing the launch of the site. “We choose to remain independent from the growing body of training and certification entities on the US market. We hope this allows the Passive House market to develop and flourish organically. We endeavor to promote all groups who share our common interest in promoting the adoption of the Passive House standard across the North American continent.”One of the volunteers who has helped establish the APHN is New York architect Ken Levenson. “It is difficult to be part of the Passive House Alliance U.S. and still retain independence, and not serve the interests of PHIUS,” Levenson explained. “Passive House Alliance U.S. is not independent — it serves the interests of PHIUS. Folks wanted something that wasn’t tied to any organization that was involved in certifying or training, or any organization that had a business interest in one field or another. Basically we wanted a neutral forum to promote anything and all things passive house. PHIUS is, for justifiable business reasons, very invested in their approach and what they are doing. We want to be able to offer clarifying statements and not to take positions — to be a tool for regional groups. We intend to work hard to maintain a sense of neutrality.”last_img read more

Children’s Books Help Military Children Manage Transitions

first_imgBy Sara CroymansWe know that military children experience multiple transitions.  They may relocate frequently, resulting in attending multiple schools or their parents may be away from home often due to trainings or deployments.  Children’s books are a great way to introduce and discuss transitions with military children.According to a 2009 Technical Assistance and Training System TATS eUpdate on Transition “Using Children’s Literature to Support Successful Transitions” one of the best ways to help children navigate transitions is through preparation.  Using books that introduce potential transitions can help prepare children for these transitions.   TATS provides several best practices when using children’s literature to support transitions.  First, children’s literature can be used by any adults in the child’s life, including family members who can read and discuss books with the children. Select stories that are similar to the transitions the child is or will be encountering or concerned about.  After reading stories about transitions discuss the similarities and differences with the child’s current or new environment.  Use parts of the story to help the child talk about their feelings related to the transition.  Use children’s stories to support transitions before, during and after the transitions occur.  If appropriate, help the children participate in activities or practice skills they are learning to support the transitions.The Minnesota National Guard Child & Youth Program provides this list of age-appropriate children books that address transitions:Preschool – Age BooksA Lesson About Deployment by Ron Madison (Preschool – 2nd grade)It is a series of short (1-2 page) poem-style accounts by characters about their  experience/feelings.One Nation: America by the Numbers by Devin Scillian (Preschool – 1st grade)Author Devin Scillian and illustrator Pam Carroll weave their magic around the  symbols of Americana that make us proud in One Nation: America by the Numbers, a follow-up to A is For America:  An American Alphabet.  More than a counting book, One Nation Illuminates the landmarks and treasurers that are uniquely American.Hooray for Our Heroes, Sesame Street (Preschool – 1st grade)The residents of Sesame Street discover that heroes are found in every place, every day.  Sometimes they are firefighters and police officers, whose jobs are heroic in nature.  And sometimes they are your neighbors down the street who do favors, large and small, that make life a little better for everyone.  This is a reassuring story that reminds us that there are all sorts of heroes, whether they are a teacher, a parent, or a friend that you don’t always have to brave great danger to be someone’s hero.My Many Colored Days (board book), Dr. Seuss (Toddler – Preschool)Dr. Seuss’ youngest concept book has stunning illustrations that capture a bright and playful book about feelings and moods to discuss with toddlers.I’m here for You Now (Board book), Zero to Three (Toddler – Preschool)This board book includes eight photo inserts for caregivers to add pictures that chronicle a child’s daily interactions with the loving adult deployed.  This book serves as a calming reminder to children that they will be loved, nurtured, and protected, no matter what the circumstances.Elementary – Aged BooksA Very Long Time by Geri Timperley and Nikki Arro (K – 2nd grade)An excellent book for military families whose Service member leave home for “A Very Long Time”.  Helps children understand that they are not alone because other daddies and mommies leave to serve our Country and a time does come when the military parent does return home.Wherever You Are MY Love Will Find You by Nancy Tillman (K – 2nd grade)This book teaches your child how love takes shape from heartfelt words and images.  This book is great to share with your loved ones, no matter how near or far, young or old, they are.My Red Balloon by Eve Bunting (K – 2nd grade)The boy has been waiting for this day for many months.  It’s the day his daddy comes home from overseas.  He jumps out of bed and gets ready for the big event.  But before going downstairs for breakfast, he takes along something very important: his red balloon.  The red balloon will help is father find him among the crowd.  When the boy and his mother get to the pier, they find parents waiting for daughters and sons, and children waiting for mommies and daddies.  Suddenly, the crowd gives up a rousing cheer as the big ship approaches the harbor.  The boy can see sailors standing on the deck.  Could one of them be his daddy?  But as the s hip approaches, the boy loses his grip on the red balloon.  Will his daddy find him in the crowd?Night Catch by Brenda Ehrmantraut (K – 5th grade)When a soldier’s work takes him half-way around the world, he enlists the help of the North Star for a nightly game of catch with his son.  Night Catch is a timeless story that connects families while they are apart and offers comforting hope for their reunion.While You are Away by Eileen Spinelli (K – 5th grade)At times a loved one may be far, far away, but that special person is never far from mind and heart.  Whether you share thoughts, memories, photographs, or favorite songs, there are many ways to find comfort when you miss someone you love.The Wishing Tree by Mary Redman (1st – 5th grade)Amanda understands her dad is making the world a better place, but it doesn’t make his deployment any easier.  After mulling over ways she can support her dad, Amanda creates a small wishing tree in her room, writing her hopes and prayers on yellow ribbons that she ties onto the branches.  As Amanda wishes for her dad to enjoy good meals, make new friends, and return safely, the little tree comes to life with yellow ribbons of hope.Middle School – Age BooksAlmost Forever by M.
