Deepening drought in central Somalia alarms UN aid agencies

29 February 2008United Nations humanitarian agencies and their partner non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are stepping up their support in central Somalia, where the drought has worsened, leaving many rural families destitute as water shortages become severe and grazing for livestock becomes increasingly limited. Most traditional water catchments are either dry or drying up, which is placing extra pressure on the few functioning boreholes, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) reported today.Mudug and Galguduud administrative regions are the hardest hit by the ongoing long dry season, and OCHA said relief assistance will be needed at least until the next harvest, expected in July-August.The UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and its NGO partners are providing water tankers, constructing shallow wells and installing water pipes in Galguduud, as well as supporting 12 maternal health centres and four other health posts serving more than 20,000 young children.The security and humanitarian situation inside the town of Dhuusamarreeb, the capital of Galguduud, is worrying UN staff following the arrival of Ethiopian troops last Friday. Field reports indicate that two-thirds of the town’s residents have fled, fearing a confrontation between the Ethiopian troops and anti-government groups.In the Bay administrative region, the World Food Programme (WFP) has had to suspend an ongoing food distribution scheme because of the heavy fighting taking place in Dinsor town.The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) also reported that another 700 people inside the national capital, Mogadishu, were displaced by fighting this week, bringing the total this year to 51,000. read more

US consumer spending rose 05 per cent in Nov best showing since

US consumer spending rose 0.5 per cent in Nov., best showing since June; income up 0.2 per cent WASHINGTON – Americans increased their spending in November by the most in five months, and their income edged up modestly.Consumer spending rose 0.5 per cent from October, when spending had risen 0.4 per cent, the Commerce Department said Monday. It was the best showing since June. The gain was driven by a jump in spending on long-lasting durable goods such as autos.Consumers’ income rose 0.2 per cent, an improvement from a 0.1 per cent decline in October. Wages and salaries, the most important component of income, rose a solid 0.4 per cent. That gain reflected strength in the private sector and a modest gain in government pay.Consumer spending is closely followed because it accounts for about 70 per cent of economic activity. The strong November showing suggests solid economic growth this quarter.Steady hiring and modest wage gains have boosted consumer confidence and given Americans more money to spend. At the same time, higher stock and home prices have driven up household wealth and made some people more comfortable about spending.The big rise in spending and smaller income gain meant that the personal saving rate slipped a bit to 4.2 per cent of after-tax income in November. That was down from 4.5 per cent in October.An inflation gauge tied to consumer spending that is closely followed by the Federal Reserve showed that inflation is still running well below the Fed’s target. Prices were unchanged in November and have risen just 0.9 per cent over the past 12 months. The Fed’s target for annual inflation is 2 per cent.The economy, as measured by the gross domestic product, grew at an annual rate of 4.1 per cent in the July-September quarter, the government said Friday in its third and final estimate. The government’s figure was up from its previous estimate of a 3.6 per cent annual growth rate for the third quarter. Nearly all of the upward revision reflected faster spending for consumers, a possible sign of momentum entering the final three months of the year.The 4.1 per cent growth rate in the third quarter was the best performance in nearly two years. It was only the second time since the economic recovery began in mid-2009 that annual growth in any quarter has topped 4 per cent.Economists caution that growth will likely slow in the October-December period. That’s because two-fifths of last quarter’s gain came from an unusually large buildup in business stockpiles — something not likely to be repeated this quarter.But analysts were encouraged by the recent acceleration in spending and say rising job growth could fuel more spending in coming months. Many analysts believe the economy’s annual growth rate will slow to between 2 per cent and 2.5 per cent this quarter because of the expected drag from slower stockpiling. But some said the better-than-expected spending could mean more strength than expected and a stronger start to 2014.“Consumers are spending at the fastest rate this quarter than any time since 2010,” said Chris Rupkey, chief financial economist at Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi. “With numbers like these, tomorrow is shaping up to be the better tomorrow we have wanted to see ever since the recession ended almost five years ago.”President Barack Obama took note last week of the encouraging reports, including four straight months of solid job gains. That spurt of hiring has helped lower the unemployment rate to 7 per cent, a five-year low.The drag from higher taxes and across-the-board spending cuts has shaved an estimated 1.5 percentage points from economic growth this year, which analysts think will be around 1.8 per cent. But the effects will lessen next year, something economists note in their forecasts for around 2.5 per cent growth or better in 2014.A stronger outlook for the economy and job market led the Fed last week to begin winding down its bond-buying program. The Fed’s bond purchases have been intended to lower long-term interest rates and encourage more borrowing and spending.The Fed said that it would begin reducing its $85 billion-a-month in bond purchases by $10 billion in January. Chairman Ben Bernanke said that if the economy keeps improving, the bond purchases could be trimmed by similar amounts at coming meetings.Jennifer Lee, senior economist at BMO Capital Markets, said the stronger spending in October and November validates the Fed’s decision to pare its bond purchases and should boost growth this quarter. At the same time, tepid inflation allows the Fed to make only modest reductions in its bond purchases without fear of igniting price increases.

Oregons minimum wage to go up Sunday

first_imgPORTLAND — Oregon workers earning the minimum wage get a raise Sunday.The minimum wage in the Portland area will jump 6.7 percent, or 75 cents, to $12 an hour. For a full-time employee, that works out to more than $1,500 extra a year — and nearly $4,700 additional since spring 2017.Sunday’s increase is the second in a series of annual hikes approved in 2016 that will raise the minimum wage in the Portland area to $14.75 an hour in 2022. The minimum wage in the Portland area jumped more than 15 percent last year, the first year of the new pay schedule.Oregon lawmakers approved the more aggressive set of minimum wage hikes in hopes of reducing the income disparities between the state’s wealthiest residents and those at the bottom of the pay scale.The minimum wage applies differently across the state, accounting for varying costs of living. In most of the state, outside the Portland area, the hourly minimum wage will climb 50 cents to $10.75 beginning Sunday. It will be $10.50 in 18 largely rural counties.Oregon has one of the highest minimum hourly wages in the nation. For comparison, it’s $13.25 in the District of Columbia, $11.50 in Washington, $11 in Massachusetts and California.Like Oregon, though, some cities and other jurisdictions have higher minimum wages.last_img read more

Keep in mind the mayor supports the SoccerCity plan.Upon a favorable vote, SDSU would purchase the land and develop a master plan for implementation.If the university gets control of the land, it will become state property governed by state law, not the city’s development regulations.These initiatives are set in stone and cannot be changed. Despite the city attorney’s uncertainties about both, they are going to the ballot in November with these uncertainties unresolved.

Infosys Using Uberlike App to Fight Attrition Improve Utilisation Rates

first_imgInfosys has developed a new internal application to enable its employees to apply for various projects that match their skill set, a model similar to that of a mobile app used by Uber cab drivers to pick up passengers.The new programme named ‘Zero Bench’ is aimed at better utilisation of resources, as India’s second largest IT firm tries to keep its structure “leaner and more disciplined.””The idea is to use existing resources better and eliminating the need to hire in thousands, like in the past. It is similar to the Uber concept — which is all about utilising resources to the maximum and effectively,” a source familiar with the development told The Economic Times.The initiative will help the company to hire people based on the need and keep a check on attrition rates by allowing employees to work on projects they opt.The Bengaluru-based firm’s step could lead to a “new trend” in the country’s $150 billion IT sector where top companies have kept a robust bench strength and lower utilisation rates for years.”Zero Bench is a next-generation people initiative that aims to maximise the potential of our talent who are currently trained and in between projects or on bench. We want to ensure that every individual is actively contributing towards organisation goals by opening up opportunities for short-duration projects,” said Ravi Kumar S, the company’s global head of delivery.When the demand for outsourcing projects was at peak, India’s top companies kept a “strong bench” in order to acquire projects.However, with the emergence of automation technologies and slowing growth rates, the country’s top IT firms such as Infosys, TCS and Wipro are not recruiting people in large numbers as they used to do in the boom period. The companies are now focusing on keeping their bench size leaner.”The zero bench programme would create opportunities for employees that did not exist in abundance in the past,” Infosys’s global head of talent Binod Hampapur Rangadore had said earlier this month.Infosys aims to improve employee productivity by 50% in the next five years. The software major estimates employee productivity to increase to $80,000 by 2020, compared to the current $52,500.Infosys reported a sharp decline in attrition rate to 14.2% in the June quarter against 23.4% in the same period a year ago, indicating that the employee-friendly measures initiated by its CEO Vishal Sikka are paying off.last_img read more

Marshals Service under scrutiny losing chief to retirement

first_img Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility 5 ways to recognize low testosterone Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States Marshals Service, which has come under criticism in some congressional quarters, is losing its director to retirement, federal officials said Tuesday.Stacia Hylton has served since January 2011 as director of the agency, whose responsibilities include protecting federal courthouses, transporting prisoners and capturing fugitives.The Marshals Service announced her departure on Tuesday, saying she expects to work on community policing and law enforcement safety and spend time at her retirement property in South Carolina. Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober “Stacia Hylton is a dedicated public servant, a devoted law enforcement officer, and a champion of fair and effective criminal justice,” Attorney General Loretta Lynch said in a statement. The Marshals Service is a component of the Justice Department.The announcement comes as the Marshals Service has attracted the scrutiny in recent months of lawmakers concerned about its hiring and spending practices. The Marshals Service said she had already been planning to retire since the winter and had recently notified the Justice Department of her intention.Sen. Chuck Grassley, an Iowa Republican and chairman of the Judiciary Committee, gave a floor statement last month citing “serious questions” about the agency’s leadership, including allegations of nepotism, punishment of whistleblowers and potential mishandling of money from its asset forfeiture fund.The Justice Department has referred allegations of misconduct to its inspector general, and said in a letter to Grassley last month that it took seriously the “extensive and important concerns” that had been raised.“As the Marshals Service moves forward, the next director must be committed to bringing real, positive change to what appears to be a culture corroded by unethical hiring practices, misuse of funds and retaliation against whistleblowers,” Grassley said in a statement Tuesday.

The Arizona Cardinals, the team going for a “Supa Bowl Ring” is 1-3 and resembles nothing like a playoff team, let alone a Super Bowl contender. How could this happen? How can the Cardinals’ season be on the brink — hanging in the balance of a likely Drew Stanton start in San Francisco on Thursday? I mean, 1-4 and they are done, right?

(AP Photo/Rick Scuteri) Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires But how did they get here? How did the Cardinals go from Super Bowl favorites to this?There is not one reason. So many things are going wrong for the Cardinals you will lose count if you try. Let’s start with pass protection. The offensive line is supposed to better after the unit had the greatest turnover in the offseason, but it’s not. Sure they can run block, but they can’t protect Carson Palmer, he looks like a Rock ’em Sock ’em Robot getting his block knocked off. Palmer is also not the same quarterback he was last year and that was expected. Last season was a career year — it wasn’t the norm for Palmer. The Cardinals have 10 turnovers in the last two games. Palmer resembles more of the quarterback he was in Cincinnati than he has been the last two years in Arizona. Teams are taking away the deep ball and Palmer’s strength is not in making quick decisions with short passes.The secondary revamped with the forced departures of Rashad Johnson and Jerraud Powers has not been good. Michael Floyd has the drops and should be moved to the No. 4 receiver behind Larry Fitzgerald, John Brown and Jaron Brown. Floyd seems more concerned with his upcoming contract than with actually holding onto the football.last_img read more

Moodys upgrades Cyprus ratings changing outlook to stable from positive

first_imgMoody`s Investors Service, has upgraded the government of Cyprus` long-term issuer rating to Ba2 from Ba3. All senior unsecured bond and programme ratings have also been upgraded to Ba2 and (P)Ba2, respectively. Cyprus`s short-term ratings have been affirmed at Not Prime (NP) and (P)NP. The outlook on Cyprus`s ratings has been changed to stable from positive.According to Moody’s the upgrade of Cyprus` ratings to Ba2 from Ba3 is driven by a number of factors, such us  the ongoing recovery of the banking system, in the context of which the liquidation of Cyprus Cooperative Bank Ltd via the sale of its healthy assets and liabilities has materially reduced systemic risks emanating from the banking sector. Also, from the positive fundamental trend with respect to the government`s balance sheet, based on robust nominal growth and a primary surplus, irrespective of the one-off related to the recent CCB transaction.The stable outlook on Cyprus`s Ba2 ratings, balances Cyprus` strong fiscal dynamics against pressures for higher public expenditure. It also reflects uncertainty around the extent to which new legal tools will enable a material decline in the banking system`s non-performing loan (NPL) ratio, it says.Moody`s would consider changing the outlook on the Ba2 ratings to positive and eventually upgrading Cyprus` Ba2 ratings if Moody`s were to conclude that macroeconomic conditions and policy actions were to result in a sustained and significant decline in the government debt stock and in the stock of non-performing loans in the banking sector, it adds.Downward pressure that could lead to a negative outlook and eventually a downgrade of the rating could develop if growth or fiscal policy decisions were to cause a reversal of the supportive fundamental debt trend. A failure to translate recent legislative actions and interventions in the banking sector into a significant decline in the non-performing loan ratio would also be credit negative, Moody’s said.You May LikeHealth & Human Research11 Most Powerful Natural AntibioticsHealth & Human ResearchUndoFigLeaf Beta AppThe Internet Knows You Better Than Anyone And Here’s Proof… Keep your identity in check before it’s too lateFigLeaf Beta AppUndo24/7Mirror30+ Things You Can Only See In Japan24/7MirrorUndo Clear winner in first round of Kition bishop voteUndoAt least 20 killed, 50 injured in attack on VP candidate’s office in KabulUndoIran’s Revolutionary Guards publish purported exchange with British warshipUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img
