TSX set to advance

Malcolm Morrison The Toronto stock market appeared set for a higher start on the first day of February trading as commodity prices advanced amid positive economic data from China. The Canadian dollar traded above parity with the greenback, up 0.33 of a cent to 100.05 cents US. Related news Toronto stock market dips on weakness in the energy and financials sectors U.S. futures were also higher with traders also encouraged by employment data two days before the release of the U.S. non-farm payrolls report for January. Payroll firm ADP said Wednesday that the American private sector created 170,000 jobs during the month. Economists were looking for the U.S. economy to have created a total of 150,000 jobs during January. The Dow Jones industrial futures jumped 86 points to 12,663, the Nasdaq futures rose 19.25 points to 2,483.5 and the S&P 500 futures were up 11.6 points to 1,319.8. In China, two surveys gave mixed signals on manufacturing activity in January but both showed it largely unchanged. The state-affiliated China Federation of Logistics and Purchasing said its purchasing managers index rose 0.2 points to 50.5 from December’s 50.3 on a 100-point scale on which numbers above 50 indicate growth. HSBC Corp. said its HSBC China Manufacturing PMI was little changed at 48.8 from December’s 48.7, suggesting a “moderate deterioration.” The Chinese government moved to slow the economy during 2011 to deal with high inflation, partly through tightening lending requirements at banks. “Both indicators suggest China’s economy is coming in for a soft landing, taking a step further toward dispelling hard landing concerns,” said BMO Capital Markets senior economist Benjamin Reitzes. The Chinese government also announced stimulus for the struggling private business sector in the form of a US$2.5 billion fund to finance new small businesses and promising tax breaks and more lending for entrepreneurs. China has been a main pillar of support for a global economy still struggling to recover from the financial crisis and subsequent recession of 2008. Its strong economic growth has been a big plus for oil and metal prices and commodity stocks on the resource-heavy TSX. Commodity prices advances following the Chinese data with March crude on the New York Mercantile Exchange ahead 49 cents to US$98.97 a barrel. Metals also advanced with the March contract for copper ahead two cents to US$3.81. China is the largest consumer of copper, which is viewed as an economic bellwether because it is used in so many businesses. Bullion prices were also higher with the April gold contract in New York up $11.40 to US$1,751.80 an ounce. Meanwhile, there were signs that the European debt crisis has eased, for now. EU leaders agreed this week to push ahead with a closer fiscal union and borrowing rates for Italy and Spain are down sharply from just a couple of months ago, suggesting increased investor confidence. Much hinges on Greece, where the outlook also appeared brighter. Hopes were growing that a debt-reduction deal between the country and its private creditors will be concluded soon alongside a second bailout from the eurozone and the International Monetary Fund. European markets were sharply higher as other data showed the final reading of the most recent purchasing managers index was revised slightly upward to 48.8. Not the best result, but still a five-month high and the second consecutive monthly improvement,” added Reitzes. “Europe is likely in recession, but the depth of the recession appears to be limited, at least for now.” London’s FTSE 100 index climbed 1.45%, Frankfurt’s DAX gained 2.32% and the Paris CAC 40 rose 1.54%. Earlier in Asia, Tokyo’s Nikkei 225 edged up less than 0.1% but Hong Kong’s Hang Seng ended down 0.3%. Mainland China’s main index in Shanghai also fell 1.2%. On the earnings front, Suncor Energy Inc. (TSX:SU) reported quarterly earnings of $1.43 billion or 91 cents a share amid higher oil prices. Revenues for the quarter were $10.1 billion versus $9.3 billion a year earlier. Suncor also said crude is starting to flow out of its Libyan operations following a bloody civil war in the North African country. Meanwhile, Facebook was expected to file as early as Wednesday to sell stock on the open market. Its debut is likely to be the most talked-about initial public offering since Google in 2004. The company expects to raise as much as US$10 billion, though some accounts say it could be less than that. At $10 billion, the company would be valued at $75 billion to $100 billion.

Jamaica Joins the World in Marking UN Day on October 24

first_imgAdvertisements RelatedJamaica Joins the World in Marking UN Day on October 24 RelatedJamaica Joins the World in Marking UN Day on October 24 Jamaica Joins the World in Marking UN Day on October 24 UncategorizedOctober 21, 2007center_img FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Jamaica will join the rest of the world in marking the 62nd anniversary of the United Nations (UN) on Wednesday, October 24.On the day, which has been designated UN Day, the work of UN agencies in Jamaica and the rest of the Caribbean will be highlighted.“We would like to use UN Day to sensitize individuals about the functions of UN agencies, types of assistance provided by all the agencies and ensure they are fully aware of how to access benefits,” said Acting Resident Coordinator of UN agencies in Jamaica, Dr. Ernest Pate.Dr. Pate, who was speaking at a recent JIS Think Tank, pointed out that, “the UN today is focused on expanding human security especially for the poor and marginalized so most of our programmes are focused on them.”In terms of Jamaica’s association with the UN, the Acting Resident Coordinator said that the UN has been in Jamaica virtually since its inception, and through the Government of Jamaica’s Medium Term Economic Framework, the organization assists the country under five priority headings. These are: education, health, HIV/AIDS, the environment and poverty reduction, and justice, peace and security.In addition, Jamaica functions as the headquarters of the UN in the region, with 10 Resident Agency Offices in the island. These are: United Nations Development Programme (UNDP); United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF); United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA); United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO); World Bank; International Labour Organization (ILO); United Nations AIDS Programme (UNAIDS); United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP); Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO); and the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO).The world body has played a lead role in supporting national relief efforts, most recently, after Hurricane Dean. In addition to assisting with initial damage assessment, the UN agencies collectively committed $80 million of emergency financial assistance through UNDP, UNICEF and PAHO, for recovery from this single event.In response to representation by UN agencies in Jamaica, international development partners, including the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the United Kingdom’s Department For International Development (DFID) and the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), have pledged in excess of $100 million of additional funding for recovery initiatives.Speaking of the annual budget for each UN agency in Jamaica, Dr. Pate told JIS News that this is in the range of US$3 million to US$7 million, which he explained is separate from funds raised by each agency through programmes. “Collectively,” he said, “they provide billions of dollars every year to support the areas of priority focus in Jamaica.”The UN came into existence on October 24, 1945, out of the need for the creation of an international organization that will maintain world peace through negotiation, diplomacy, collective security and improving global welfare.The world body replaced the League of Nations, which was established in 1920 by the peace treaties that ended World War 1, with the aim of bringing stability to the world and ensuring that war never broke out again. The League was dismantled after it failed to prevent World War 2. RelatedJamaica Joins the World in Marking UN Day on October 24last_img read more

Sod turned on new Coldstream fire station

first_imgSod turned on new Coldstream fire station Coldstream’s new fire station may be built just a few doors down from the current station, but it will be streets ahead in what it offers the brigade and its local community.CFA Chief Officer Jason Heffernan (second from left) on Friday joined Member for Eastern Victoria Harriett Shing (middle), Executive Director Infrastructure Services Anthony Ramsay (far left), District 13 Assistant Chief Fire Officer Colin Brown (far right) and Coldstream Captain Sean Bethell (second from right) at the turning of the sod as construction begins on the new Coldstream fire station.CFA Chief Officer Jason Heffernan on Friday joined Member for Eastern Victoria Harriett Shing, Executive Director Infrastructure Services Anthony Ramsay, District 13 Assistant Chief Fire Officer Colin Brown, Coldstream Captain Sean Bethell and brigade members as the first sod was turned on the new $1.5 million fire station in Killara Road.Chief Officer Heffernan said it was going to be exciting to see the new station take shape over the next few months.“Coldstream is a really busy brigade that attends fires, motor vehicle accidents and many other emergency incidents on the urban fringe and throughout the Yarra Valley and indeed in support of other regions and states, and I’m really pleased to see this new station come to fruition,” he said.“As CFA moves forward as a volunteer-only firefighting organisation, we are committed to providing our firefighters with the best infrastructure, equipment and support that we can so we can continue to fulfill our mission of saving lives and property,” Chief Officer Heffernan said.The new fit-for-purpose, three engine bay station – the first of 16 replacement CFA stations to be built as part of a $126 million Victorian Government funding package designed to boost the capabilities of the CFA – will provide the Coldstream brigade’s more than 40 members with a large meeting room for training and brigade meetings and better amenities including male and female change rooms, on-site parking, workshop, storage and other operational support areas.Coldstream Captain Sean Bethell said it would be a big improvement on the current station, which was built by members in 1966 after the land was donated to the brigade.“For the brigade, it’s a big improvement to our capacity to support our own and neighbouring communities,” he said.The Coldstream Fire Brigade covers suburban and rural areas in the Shire of Yarra Ranges, and has a long history of protecting the community from threats of bushfires and grassfires and the upgraded station will ensure the brigade can continue to meet the demands of growing townships in urban and rural areas into the future.Construction of the new station is expected to be completed in July 2021.CO Heffernan met with Coldstream brigade members on Friday as construction of the new Coldstream fire station began. /CFA News Release.
