Rio Tinto Alcan workers in Alma Que vote to end labour dispute

by The Canadian Press Posted Jul 5, 2012 10:50 pm MDT Rio Tinto Alcan workers in Alma, Que., vote to end labour dispute ALMA, Que. – Locked out workers at a Rio Tinto Alcan plant in Alma, Que., voted Thursday night to end a labour dispute which had been running since the start of the year.Workers in three groups voted in favour of the tentative deal with the aluminium company by margins of 82 per cent to 92 per cent.The 780 Rio Tinto Alcan workers were locked out on Dec. 30.One of the key issues in the dispute was outsourcing. The international company wanted to replace retiring workers with sub-contractors that would be paid lower wages.The union said Thursday night that the new contract limited outsourcing, bolstering the interests of the Quebec employees.During the dispute, the union had also denounced the company’s continued operation of its dams and the selling of its electricity production to Hydro-Quebec.“We faced the third-largest mining company in the world and we won,” said Leo Gerad, the international president of the United Steelworkers.“The message to multinational corporations is clear: workers are more determined than ever to defend their rights.”The new contract runs until Dec. 21, 2015. Details of the deal will be announced on Friday, the union said.“I thank our members and their families have never abandoned despite six months of lockout, said Mark Maltais, president of Local 9490.“We can go back to work with heads up.”The company welcomed the positive vote Thursday night.“This is excellent news for our employees, their families, the community, our customers and our shareholders,” said Etienne Jacques, CEO for the North American division of Rio Tinto Alcan Primary Metal.“The agreement will help protect the competitiveness of the Alma plant in the future.”The company said management will being the back to work process for the employees over the next few days, followed by the restart of the plant smelter’s production cells.The new deal was reached Sunday with the intervention of a Ministry of Labour conciliator.The Alma plant is in Quebec’s Saguenay region, about 225 kilometres north of Quebec City. It is one of Rio Tinto Alcan’s key aluminum smelters, producing about 438,000 tonnes of aluminum a year.The lockout caused a one-third reduction in output at the smelter.Alma’s mayor had said the lockout hit the local economy hard.Marc Asselin had said a positive outcome would bring welcome relief to the community, which has been watching its pennies over the last few months.“In the last six months, people have been careful with their expenses, careful with their investments because they didn’t know when the conflict would end.”Kathleen Voyer, director general of the Lac-St-Jean-Est chamber of commerce and industry, said that prudence was clearly evident.“We saw a slowdown on the construction side, also in renovations and at the level of the car dealers,” she said. “It was the same thing in the beauty treatment sector, for example. These were the sectors that were affected more than the others.”Asselin said economic restraint was also exercised by the town, which was careful about how it spent its funds.

Meeting with developing country leaders Ban stresses universal nature of new sustainability

“Tomorrow is a historic day. The world will unite around a universal and transformative Agenda to guide development efforts to 2030,” he told a ministerial meeting of the G77 and China, a grouping that now includes 134 states, more than two thirds of the total UN membership of 193. “Developed countries are committing to act not only through their development cooperation, but also through domestic plans and policies,” he told the ministers ahead of the three-day summit being held with the context of the UN General Assembly’s 70th annual General Debate. “It demands to enhance the productive capacity in developing countries, especially in the least developed countries. It addresses the preservation of the planet and the fight against climate change.”“The new programme, Transforming Our World: 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development consists of a Declaration, 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets, a section on means of implementation and renewed global partnership, all seeking to build on and expand the eight Millennium Development Goals adopted at a UN summit in 2000. “Mr. Ban stressed that the Agenda focuses on growth and decent employment, while .ensuring the preservation of the planet and the fight against climate change, taking into account the complexity and interconnected nature of today’s most vexing challenges.“The Group of 77 and China has played an extremely important role in shaping this agenda. I am sure you will sustain the same enthusiasm and idealism as we move to implementation,” Mr. Ban said, committing the full support of the entire UN System. “You need to act in your countries to build awareness and commitment to this agenda.” read more


The Mets Rise And Fall With Doc Gooden And Darryl Strawberry

Most WAR in a player’s debut season, 1901-2016 Best under-26 combos in MLB history Kerry WoodCHC53.13.041.142785 2015Kris Bryant23CHC6.50.06.5 Does not include players who, by rule, retained Rookie of the Year award eligibility into subsequent seasons.Source: Fangraphs 1912PHAEddie Collins36.4Frank Baker26.663.0 With Gooden and Strawberry blossoming into megastars, the Mets seemed poised to build on their ’86 Series victory and form a full-blown dynasty. But the duo’s on-field accomplishments were masking a variety of personal demons — issues that would ultimately derail their careers and dash New York’s hopes of long-term dominance.Gooden and Strawberry were both products of alcoholic fathers; Darryl’s was abusive, Doc’s was relentlessly overbearing. And practically from the start of their pro careers, the two plunged into their own cycles of violence and substance abuse. Both men built an ugly legacy of violence against women. Gooden missed the Mets’ 1986 World Series parade because of drugs and tested positive for cocaine the next spring, the opening entries in a long list of personal problems. Strawberry clashed with teammates and spent multiple stints in rehab for drug and alcohol addiction. Gooden contemplated suicide; Strawberry relapsed into drug use even after recovering from cancer. They became the faces of decadence, wasted talent and the full range of cultural pathologies attached to star athletes in the roaring 1980s.For a time, both players were able to perform well despite the personal turmoil. (Each was able to produce at least 6.5 WAR — the mark of a strong All-Star or borderline MVP — in 1990, even as their off-field lives were crumbling.) But ultimately, neither player’s career lived up to the expectations set in their early careers. Depending on which WAR variant you use,4Aside from 1985, FanGraphs’ version of WAR held Gooden in higher regard than Baseball-Reference’s in 10 of Gooden’s first 11 MLB seasons. Gooden’s career total fell about 10 wins shy of what could have been expected from similar players as a young pitcher. Likewise, Strawberry missed the career WAR totals of his comparables by 22 wins.Just as the emergence of Gooden and Strawberry fueled the Mets’ surprising turnaround after the 1983 season, their twin downfalls contributed to the Mets’ collapse in the early-to-mid 1990s. After the 1990 season, when Doc and Darryl led New York to a 91-71 record in their last year together, the same next-five-years prediction model from above would have expected 87 wins per year from the Mets’ 1991-95 seasons. Instead, the team averaged 73 victories over that span, the 17th-biggest shortfall of the 162-game era.Strawberry bolted to the Dodgers as a free agent in November 1990 and made the All-Star team his first season in LA, but he was never the same again. Gooden stuck around in New York for a few more years before a drug suspension cost him the entire 1995 season and ended his tenure with the club. And the Mets had the worst record in baseball from 1991 to 1996.It was a stunning collapse for all parties involved and a reminder of how fragile a gifted core of young superstars can be. Just as quickly as extraordinary talent can breathe new life into a flagging franchise, it can also pave the way for disappointment, leaving a generation of fans wondering what might have been.Check out our latest MLB predictions.

The Mets finished dead last in the NL, 23 games out of first place, and came in under 70 wins for the seventh consecutive season. Worse yet, ace pitcher Tom Seaver, easily the Mets’ best player to that point in franchise history, was snapped up by the White Sox after the season because general manager Frank Cashen neglected to protect him from inclusion in the free-agent compensation pool.But 1983 also had bright spots. In addition to the midseason acquisition of 1979 NL co-MVP Keith Hernandez, the Mets had in their minor-league system a pair of prospects who would soon dramatically improve the team’s fortunes. Those players — outfielder Darryl Strawberry and pitcher Dwight “Doc” Gooden — are the subject of a 30 for 30 documentary that premieres tonight on ESPN, and their story highlights how quickly superstar phenoms can help remake a franchise in tatters.It also underscores how, just as quickly, everything can evaporate.Strawberry was the first of the Mets’ two whiz kids to reach the majors, early in that otherwise ill-fated 1983 season. When he arrived from AAA Tidewater on May 6, the Mets were 6-15 and 10 games out of the NL lead. Things would get worse before they got better. During his first month in The Show, Strawberry hit just .164 and struck out once every 2.5 at-bats. But five weeks into his career, he finally started to figure out big-league pitching: From June 7 onward, Strawberry posted a .936 OPS (on-base plus slugging) — better than eventual league MVP Dale Murphy. After the season, Strawberry was named the NL’s Rookie of the Year.Gooden didn’t make his debut until the following season, but he quickly proved to be Strawberry’s equal as a prospect. In his first two months of major-league action, Gooden struck out 73 batters, one of the highest totals ever in a pitcher’s first nine career starts:1Sadly, we can’t say exactly where it ranked among a pitcher’s first nine starts because’s game finder tool can only search within a pitcher’s first nine career appearances, whether as a starter or in relief.

Strawberry had the effortless power and discerning eye of a young Reggie Jackson. He could also run, swiping at least 25 bases every season from 1984 to 1988. Among a stellar class of young outfielders in the mid-to-late 1980s that included Barry Bonds, Rickey Henderson, Tim Raines and Tony Gwynn, Strawberry was staking his claim near the top of the list.Gooden, meanwhile, was a monumental talent, at his peak one of the most dominant pitchers this side of Pedro Martinez. In 1984 — at age 19! — Doc’s fielding independent pitching (FIP) was 1.69, still the seventh-lowest (relative to the league) ever in a single season. He followed that up with a 1.53 ERA as a 20-year-old, the 12th-lowest (again, relative to league average) ever recorded in a season.It was one of the most masterful stretches by a pitcher ever, and it helped Gooden produce the 20th-best pair of back-to-back WAR seasons by a pitcher in major league history, all before his 21st birthday. It also included the bulk of a magical 50-start span that stretched from late in the 1984 season into early 1986, during which Gooden allowed an infinitesimal 1.38 ERA, struck out 4.6 batters for each one he walked and led the Mets to a 41-9 record when he took the mound.During that five-year run, the Mets won at least 90 games every year, breaking the mythic 100-win barrier twice. They won the World Series in 1986 and came within a game of going to another in 1988. And Doc and Darryl were the driving forces. They finished 1-2 on the team in WAR over that span and became the 20th-most-productive pair of teammates under age 26 in baseball history. Stephen StrasburgWSH54.12.321.071575 Thanks to another 25-homer, .800-OPS season from Strawberry and a strong performance by Hernandez (who finished second on the team — and 14th among NL hitters — with 5.7 WAR), the 1984 Mets ended the season with 90 victories, a 22-game improvement over the previous year.It was the start of a turnaround unlike just about any in modern baseball history. If you’d taken those ghastly 1983 Mets and built a simple regression model predicting how many games they’d win over the next five seasons — based on things like how many WAR they had on the roster (not many); how young their batters and pitchers were2Weighted by WAR. (not very); and the size of the market in which they played3Based on both long-term franchise payroll trends and metro-area population, divvied up for multiteam cities according to the process my colleague Nate Silver used here. (large, but cramped by the crosstown Yankees’ slice of the New York media pie) — you’d have guessed the Mets would win about 77 games per season from 1984 to 1988. In reality, they averaged 98 wins a season over that span, the second-biggest positive differential between forecast and fact since the NL adopted the 162-game schedule in 1962: 1958NYYMickey Mantle61.2Andy Carey11.272.4 Herb ScoreCLE72.02.881.294582 1941NYYJoe DiMaggio46.0Joe Gordon22.468.4 1921NYYBabe Ruth57.7Bob Meusel8.065.7 1942Johnny Pesky22BOS6.10.06.1 Hideo NomoLAD57.02.841.263475 Ages as of July 1 of the season in question.Source: Fangraphs 1939Ted Williams20BOS7.10.07.1 1914WSHWalter Johnson53.8Chick Gandil10.464.2 Dwight GoodenNYM51.13.681.252573 And he was just getting started.

Ohio State womens soccer bound for NCAA tourney

When the 64-team field for the 2011 NCAA women’s soccer tournament was announced Monday, the Ohio State women’s soccer team was included, giving the Buckeyes a chance to follow up last season’s run to the national semifinals. The unseeded Buckeyes (10-8-2, 5-5-1) will take on regional No. 4 seed Tennessee at 2 p.m. Nov. 12 in a first-round matchup hosted by the Volunteers (15-6-0). OSU’s postseason hopes seemed to be in some doubt after the team suffered a first-round loss to Illinois in the Big Ten Tournament on Thursday. Coming in as the No. 7 seed, the Buckeyes lost, 4-2, on penalty kicks after regulation and two overtime periods resulted in a tie, 1-1. The second-seeded Fighting Illini eventually went on to win the tournament. The Buckeyes concluded the regular season 10-8-1, with a 5-5-1 mark within the conference. A couple of program milestones highlighted the season. The team recorded the 200th victory in program history on Sept. 23 with a 2-1 win against Illinois at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. That mark was eclipsed on the team’s alumni weekend. “I’m really happy with where the program is and what we’ve been able to do over the years,” coach Lori Walker, who was at the helm of 164 of the 200 wins to that point, said at the time. “It’s nice to recognize this milestone because it includes everyone who has been a part of it.” The 2011 senior class won its 49th game with a 3-0 triumph against Indiana on Senior Day at Jesse Owens. The victory moved that class into a tie with the 2006 class for the second-most wins for a four-year group in program history. “From top to bottom I think they’re just some of the nicest people I’ve ever worked with,” Walker said. “Anytime you can have nine seniors go from the beginning to the end together, it’s a testament to their strength.” Senior forward Caitlyn Martin, who tallied a goal in the victory, spoke about the close-knit relationships within the team. “We have a great senior group and we’re really close, so it was really special to go out on our last day in the Jesse and get a win and play for each other,” Martin said. “It was a great team effort.” The low point of the season was a stretch from Sept. 29 to Oct. 23, in which the team lost five of seven games, prompting Walker to say the offense was “in the crapper” following an Oct. 16 loss to Nebraska. It was during this slide that the Buckeyes let their postseason hopes almost slip away. In the end, the Buckeyes made the national tournament for the third straight season while several OSU players garnered postseason honors. Senior defender Danielle Scoliere followed up last week’s first-team All-Big Ten honors by being named to the conference’s all-tournament team last Sunday, while sophomore midfielder Danica Wu was named to the second-team All-Big Ten. Senior defender Liz Sullivan was OSU’s Big Ten sportsmanship honoree and also joined senior goalie Katie Baumgardner on the all-district academic third team, announced Monday. The winner between OSU and Tennessee will go on to the second round to play the winner between Illinois State and Milwaukee. read more


Monty Python comeback show sells out in 435 seconds

first_imgMONTY PYTHON ADDED another four dates to their “one-off” reunion show today after thousands of tickets to their first London live performance sold out in just 43.5 seconds.John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin announced their long-awaited return to the stage last week, sparking huge excitement among fans of the comedians who have not performed together since 1980.They said they only planned to do one show at the 20,000-capacity O2 Arena on 1 July,  and Idle said the intention was “to see if we can fill it”.But the promoters were clearly prepared for the huge demand that saw tickets with a face value of under £100 (€120)  offered on re-sale websites for £1,600 (€1,900) within 15 minutes of the sale opening.“The first show sold out in 43.5 seconds. Four further shows immediately went on sale: 2-5 July,” a spokesman for Monty Python told AFP.The Pythons will perform the most famous sketches from their television programme and films — although advancing age has imposed some limits on what they will be able to do. (PA Archive)Cleese, 74, admitted that a repeat of his Ministry of Silly Walks sketch will be “impossible” as he now has an artificial hip and artificial knee.“I think you can expect a little comedy, a lot of pathos, some music and a tiny bit of ancient sex,” added Idle, 70.The troupe became famous with their irreverent and surreal television show “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” from 1969 to 1974, which was sold to almost 100 countries.One of their hit sketches was Dead Parrot, where Cleese tries to return a Norwegian Blue to a pet shop because it is dead. The owner, Palin, responds: “He’s not dead, he’s resting!”.They also made several films including 1975’s “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”, a parody of the legend of King Arthur, and “Monty Python’s Life of Brian” in 1979, the tale of a young man mistaken for Jesus which riled religious groups.- © AFP, 2013Read: 11 of the best bits from Monty Python’s ‘ask me anything’ > Read: ‘Monty Python reunion is for real’: Terry Jones >last_img read more


Where is the national scandal here Callinan defends garda handling of penalty

first_imgHe was appearing before the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) today in the wake of findings by the Comptroller and Auditor General (C&AG) who examined allegations by a garda whistleblower that fixed charge penalty notices had been cancelled corruptly and illegally.“There are many, many allegations being made… but nobody has provided any evidence of corruption or malpractice,” he said.He rejected an initial claim from Labour TD Derek Nolan that this issue is a ‘national scandal’, saying:Where is the ‘national scandal’ here? Can you point your finger to where the ‘national scandal’ is?”‘Bees worrying livestock’Callinan detailed one case where penalty points were cancelled because “bees were worrying livestock”. He said that the person involved was a beekeeper engaged in voluntary work whose wife telephoned him to tell him his bees were “out of control”.He had to get back quickly as livestock and people were in close proximity, Callinan explained, saying that he had been speeding nine kilometres over the speed limit.He said that the garda officer in question took the view that the offence merited cancellation, noting the person in question had no previous transgressions.The C&AG found the rate of terminations for 2011 and 2012 to be 5 per cent and that up to one in five traffic offenders avoided penalties. He also noted that rates of termination appear to be higher than normal in some parts of the country, highlighting “operational difficulties” that needed to be addressed.In his opening statement to the committee this morning, Callinan said he “fully accept(s)” the recommendations of the C&AG and said the gardaí have in recent months implemented “a significant number of measures” in relation to the penalty points system.He said that disciplinary action has been taken against a “small number of personnel” and that “written advices” have been issued to a “further number” regarding the “necessity to conduct matters within policy and procedures”.DirectiveThe commissioner said that in August last year a directive was issued to all members of the force regarding the cancellation of fixed charge notices and said this will “provide greater clarity on the role of the cancelling authority”.Callinan pointed out that an internal garda report by Assistant Commissioner John O’Mahoney, who was also at today’s hearings, found that there was a termination rate of 4.55 per cent compared to a 5 per cent rate reported by the C&AG.But he said that when O’Mahony’s examination of over 66,000 cancelled fixed charge notices excluded terminations for “legal and technical reasons” the cancellation rate came down to 2.57 per cent.He said this equates to an average of 10,571 terminations per year annually.“To put this figure in context, it equates to less than two cancellation notices per week per Garda district,” he said, adding it proves a “efficient and cost effective alternative” to road traffic prosecutions.Callinan said that an internal audit of fixed charge note cancellations in November and December last year showed that “100 per cent of these cancellations were carried out within policy”.Earlier, the committee heard that one of the whistleblowers is to take legal advice before deciding whether he will appear before the committee next week.Callinan was also informed by PAC chairman John McGuinness that further documentation related to the cancellation of penalty points has been given by the Justice Committee to the clerk of the PAC.Read: A broken speedometer, a dying cow and a swarm of bees – how some people avoided penalty points GARDA COMMISSIONER MARTIN Callinan has defended the force’s administering of the fixed charge notice or penalty points system and said that “swift action” has been taken on foot of concerns and recommendations made in recent months.Callinan told TDs today that an internal audit of the gardaí’s termination of penalty points in November and December last year has found that all of these cancellations were carried out within garda policy.“Holistically the system itself is working very, very well,” he said, while acknowledging that the record-keeping had been poor in relation to the input of detail about some fixed charge notices through the Garda PULSE system.He said that when you “look at the totality of allegations…no thread of evidence has been found to date and nobody has come forward and provided that type of evidence” to back-up claims of widespread corruption in the system.Read: ‘The facts as I know them’: 11 things we learned from Martin Callinan’s evidence to the PAClast_img read more


Moscovici warns Greece

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The European Union’s top economic affairs official, Pierre Moscovici, warned on Wednesday that Greece’s latest proposal to cut the cost of its pension system is ambitious but still falls short of creditors’ demands.Reducing Greek spending on pensions is a key demand in Greece’s €86-billion bailout, agreed in July with the country’s eurozone partners after six months of bitter talks.Greece spends more on pensions than any other EU country, and has proposed a wide-ranging plan that has been broadly welcomed by the country’s creditors, but with questions still remaining.“This plan is global and has an ambition that is clearly greater than what has been done in the past,” Moscovici told AFP in an interview at the World Economic Forum in the Swiss ski resort of Davos.“But that said, we believe that serious discussions are still needed to fix the right parameters,” he added.Source: AFPlast_img read more

PLOT TWIST Massachusetts Attorney General DELAYS Ruling On Town Meeting Article Relative

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — In a recent letter to Town Clerk Sharon George, Assistant Attorney General Margaret Hurley announced that the Attorney General’s Office is not prepared to issue a ruling yet on Article 2 from the Special Town Meeting on December 16.Article 2 changed the town’s zoning bylaws to place any future hospitals, nursing homes, and detox centers exclusively in industrial zones with a special permit.“The Attorney General’s Office is essentially delaying their ruling on Article 2, the article to make modifications to the zoning bylaws to address detox centers,” Town Manager Jeff Hull told Selectmen at this week’s board meeting. “They’ve established a new deadline of June 19, 2018. They’re looking to take additional time to review the merits as to whether the article complies with state law and the state constitution.”Hull noted that the other articles (Article 3-5) from the Special Town Meeting were approved by the Attorney General’s Office.  Article 1 was never taken up at the meeting.Selectman Mike McCoy, who was the lead petitioner of Article 2, had a lot to say about the Attorney General’s delay.“I believe if the Attorney General thought the article was discriminatory, the AG’s Office would have disapproved it immediately, but she has not,” said McCoy. “I believe this has become a political football.  That is why, I believe, the Attorney General’s Office is delaying their decision.”“The Attorney General’s Office has heard from the opposing side. Local lawyers and residents have submitted briefs against Article 2,” said McCoy. “The AG has to really realize that — the bottom line is – 1,571 people in this community signed 3 petitions and 85% of the vote at the Special Town Meeting supported Article 2, plus a majority vote from the Board of Selectmen at that time… Now she needs to hear from the winning side.”McCoy made a motion to “have Town Counsel engage with the Attorney General’s Office in order to have Article 2 approved,” noting “Town Counsel needs to defend the vote of Town Meeting.”“We need to put the Attorney General’s Office on notice that if she disapproves it, the town has a right to sue the Attorney General’s Office and bring it to court…. We have that constitutional right,” added McCoy.“I may disagree with a vote of the Town Meeting, but I’ve always accepted it. It is our duty and obligation to fight for a Town Meeting votes passage,” ccontinued McCoy. “Town Counsel Foskett believed Article 1 would not stand up… but felt Article 2 would probably hold water with the AG’s Office.”McCoy’s motion failed for a lack of a second.“I appreciate your passion, but am not prepared to endorse your motion at this time,” responded Selectman Mike Champoux. “When the Attorney General does come back with her findings, it may be a moot point… And if she doesn’t rule [in favor of Article 2], I might give some consideration to your request, but – at this point – I don’t think it’s necessary. We ought to let her do her job.”Selectman Kevin Caira questioned why the town should get involved since it was a citizen-backed petition, not a Selectmen-backed petition.“Why can’t the petitioners (“Mike McCoy and others”) and get the attorneys together to fight, why should the town have to do that?,” asked Caira.“When I walk out the door tonight, the AG’s Office is going to find out what that exact vote was,” said Selectman Mike McCoy. “I’m also going to solicit our legislative delegation – our state senator and our two state reps – to do their jobs and engage with the Attorney General. This has become a political football.  I know local attorneys have submit briefs in opposition in Article 2. Residents have contacted her. Now she needs to hear from the winning side, plain and simple.”Two residents spoke on the matter.“Article 2 has become a political football, largely due to Mr. McCoy’s efforts,” said Mary Giroux. “I don’t believe in name-calling, or bringing up issues that don’t pertain to this particular one. I do believe, from the very beginning, the intent, itself, was discriminatory all along. It does require further review. I’m glad the Attorney General is looking at it. The intent could open up the town to liability later. This really does need to be looked at patiently and thoroughly, not just for the good of the people with substance abuse disorder, but also for everyone in this town.”“We change people’s mind one problem at a time, not with conflict and name-calling.  I hope everyone keeps a cool head on this,” continued Giroux. “I hope we continue to help everyone in our community — not just a group of neighbors — but also those people suffering from substance abuse disorder, as they need our help most of all.”“[Article 2] is incredibly discriminatory, that’s all it is. It’s mind-blowing… Those suffering from substance abuse disorder are a protected class of citizens,” said Michael Gray, who noted he’s talked to the Attorney General’s Office on this matter several times. “I’ve never been more mad or disgusted of the town I’ve lived in for 42 years.”In response to Gray’s plea that the Selectmen stand up against discrimination, Selectman Mike Champoux took umbrage.“It’s our job to see that the government process goes effectively, fairly and equitably,” responded Champoux. “We had a Special Town Meeting where the entire voting population was invited to come and participate in. The fact that the vote didn’t come out the way you liked it, I’m sorry…. Let’s see if [the article] is determined to be constitutional. You may not like that answer too.  It’s called democracy. Sometimes democracy kinda blows, but that’s the way it goes. I prefer it to any of the other systems.”McCoy Drops Another GrenadeTowards the end of the meeting, under “New Business,” Selectman Mike McCoy surprised his colleagues with a possible revelation surrounding the detox facility proposal.McCoy claimed, based on conversations he had with land owners on Lowell Street, that – to lock in the zoning on a property for 8 years prior to a zoning change at Town Meeting –  a plan needs to be submitted to the Planning Department, and stamped by the Town Clerk’s Office, prior to the first posted advertisement date of the joint Planning Board/Finance Committee Public Hearing in the Town Crier. He had previously been under the impression that the deadline was prior to the actual hearing.Paul Kneeland, the lead backer of the proposed Detox Facility Proposal at 362 Middlesex Avenue, submitted his subdivision preliminary plan on November 27. While the hearing wasn’t until November 30, the first Town Crier advertisement date for hearing was November 15.  According to McCoy, Kneeland should have had his plan submitted no later than November 14 at 4:30pm.“The stamp here on the application says November 27,” said McCoy. “This application is null and void. This man can’t go forward to the Planning Board and Finance Committee.”McCoy felt confident his position, but did note he could be wrong. He asked Town Manager Jeff Hull to confer with Town Counsel on this matter.Wilmington Apple followed up with the Town Manager on Tuesday morning via email, asking to be provided with Town Counsel’s opinion. On Wednesday night, Town Manager Hull responded.“I appreciate your interest in receiving the Town Counsel’s legal opinion.  At this point, based upon the advice of Town Counsel, I am not at liberty to provide specific details about the legal opinion,” wrote Hull. “In general, I can tell you that the Board has been advised that the filing of the preliminary subdivision plan with the Planning Board on November 27, 2017 preserves the rights of the proponent to develop the property at 362 Middlesex Avenue based upon the General Business zoning in effect prior to the December 16, 2017 special town meeting vote as long as the preliminary subdivision plan is followed by a definitive subdivision plan within seven months.”It would appear that Town Counsel is disagreeing with McCoy’s assertion that Kneeland needed to submit his preliminary subdivision plan by November 14.Open Meeting Law Violation ConcernsTown Manager Jeff Hull told the Selectmen that more care needed to be given when bringing items up under “New Business.”“The Open Meeting Law is established so that the public can be informed, in advance, of what matters are to be considered before the board and any actions to be taken,” cautioned Hull. “When the board is looking to take up, or instruct me to take up, actions under ‘New Business,’ I’m concerned someone could make a case they weren’t forewarned that the matter was being brought up. ‘New Business’ is not for the purpose of taking up unadvertised items on the agenda.”Hull pointed out that, as an example, two meetings ago, under ‘New Business,’ a motion was made relative to authorizing discussions relative to the acquisition of Sciarappa Farm.“Every once in a while, we get these hand grenades from [Selectman McCoy],” observed Selectman Kevin Caira. “This concern [over the Kneeland application] could have been place on the agenda and the Town Manager could have already found out the answer. Now it drags on… All these hand grenades! You should have brought this forward [prior to the meeting] and communicated with your colleagues.”Selectman Chair Mike Champoux said the agenda is put together on Thursday at 4pm. McCoy said he made this discovery on Wednesday around 2:30pm.“Then it should have been on the agenda. The Town Manager could have done his homework ahead of time,” responded Champoux. “This is not the intent or spirit behind ‘New Business.’”Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Never Be Without A Toilet With This Quirky Japanese App

first_img If you find yourself having to go to the bathroom all the time like me, you’ve probably already memorized the locations of all the toilets near you, but for everyone else, a Japanese company has created an app that will direct you to the nearest empty toilet. It’s meant for use at work, introduced by the telecommunication company KDDI. If that’s not a ridiculously useful idea to keep employees from going to each other’s throats, then I don’t know what is.The app could potentially predict if toilets are being used if there are special sensors on bathroom stall doors to see if they’re open or closed and estimate whether or not stalls or open space toilets/urinals are available in the area.A spokesman for telecommunications company KDDI stated that the idea for the app came about because people “often waste time looking around for an available toilet” on various floors of a building where they work or end up waiting until one is available. That means they’re not working and walking around being idle. And that means money’s being wasted. Time is money. Idle hands are the devil’s plaything. Also, not having a toilet around when you need one on the job is rough.“We believe this service will help people waste less time,” the KDDI spokesperson explained.This app will also assist people in that it can tell administrators if a stall has been occupied more than 30 minutes to eliminate potential tragedies or accidents or to simply tell when someone’s decided to hit up the bathrooms for a snooze. KDDI will start using the service in office buildings, but if it works out will likely roll it out to malls, train stations, stadiums, and more.It might seem a little bizarre, however, to be monitoring toilets that are open and how long they’re occupied, which could lead to some admittedly strange workplace rules But it’s still a good way to make sure there’s at least some employee comfort when someone needs to make number two a number one priority while on the clock.

Insured Banks Tallied 353B in Q3 Earnings FDIC

first_img November 22, 2011 421 Views Share Insured Banks Tallied $35.3B in Q3 Earnings: FDIC Balance sheets improved steadily for commercial and savings financial institutions over the third quarter, according to the FDIC, with those insured by the federal agency offering $35.3 billion in profit margins.[IMAGE]The “”FDIC””: released its findings as part of a _Quarterly Banking Profile_, which tracks asset quality, net income, and loan portfolios across the industry.””We continue to see income growth that reflects improving asset quality and lower loss provisions,”” “”Martin Gruenberg””:, FDIC acting chairman, said in a “”statement””: “”U.S. banks have come a long way from the depths of the financial crisis. Bank balance sheets are stronger in a number of ways, and the industry is generally profitable, but the recovery is by no means complete.””The FDIC said that third-quarter profit marks a ninth consecutive quarter for year-over-year earnings increases.The spike in profit reflects an $11.5-billion boost from net income reported by banks last year, which wallowed at $23.8 billion over the third quarter in 2010.Loan portfolios snagged an updraft over the third quarter, posting an increase for the second consecutive quarter as loans and leases went up by $21.8 billion. Residential mortgage loan balances climbed by $23.7 billion.[COLUMN_BREAK]Notably, the FDIC’s “”Problems List”” contracted for the second consecutive quarter, with problem banks and financial institutions falling from 865 to 844.
