China’s consumer inflation edged up in December despite the slump in global oil prices but was still well below the official target.

(AP Photo) CHINA OUT by The Associated Press Posted Jan 8, 2015 8:12 pm MDT BEIJING, China – China’s consumer inflation edged up in December despite the slump in global oil prices but was still well below the official target.Prices rose 1.5 per cent from a year earlier, up from November’s 1.4 per cent increase, government data showed Friday. That was driven by sharp increases in the price of some food items, including 14 per cent for eggs and 10.4 per cent for fresh fruit.For 2014, consumer prices rose 2 per cent, well below the official target of 3.5 per cent, according the National Bureau of Statistics.Lower inflation gives Beijing room to cut interest rates or take other steps, if needed, to revive growth that slowed to a five-year low of 7.3 per cent in the quarter ending in September.The decline came despite the plunge in global oil prices over the past six months. Energy accounts for a smaller share of inflation in China, where families spend up to half their incomes on food, than in developed economies.“Although consumer price inflation has stabilized for now, we expect the fall in prices for oil and many agricultural commodities to push it slightly lower over the coming year,” said Julian Evans-Pritchard of Capital Economics in a report. “Nonetheless, we don’t expect it to fall to the levels currently seen in many developed countries.”Producer prices, measured as goods leave the factory, fell by 0.6 per cent from a year earlier, extending a lengthy period of declines blamed on excess production capacity in many industries.___National Bureau of Statistics (in Chinese): www.stats.gov.cn read more

Web preview Ochocinco teams up with former Buckeye soccer stars

Roger Espinoza and Konrad Warzycha knew they’d be competing with, and against, high-profile athletes when they left the Ohio State men’s soccer team to pursue Major League Soccer careers. But, teaming with Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco never crossed their minds. Ochocinco, a six-time NFL Pro Bowl selection and avid soccer fan, recently concluded a four-day trial with MLS club Sporting Kansas City, which began March 23. Espinoza, a defender on Sporting KC’s squad, said he enjoyed training with the NFL superstar. “I spoke to (Ochocinco) a little bit, and he was happy to be here,” Espinoza said. “He’s a world-class athlete.” Espinoza, who helped to lead OSU to the 2007 NCAA College Cup championship game his senior season, said he expected Ochocinco’s trial with Sporting KC to be a “media thing.” Ochocinco’s attitude convinced Espinoza otherwise. “He’s not just here for media stuff,” Espinoza said. “He actually wanted to be here. He talks to a lot of the guys. He wants to play. … He knows a little bit about soccer.” Warzycha, a rookie midfielder on Sporting KC’s roster, never got a chance to meet or train with Ochocinco. After completing his final season as a Buckeye in November 2010 and signing a contract with Sporting KC on March 3, knee surgery forced Warzycha to return to Columbus for rehab. Warzycha said that missing the opportunity to meet Ochocinco was “definitely a disappointment.” “When I heard (Ochocinco) was coming,” Warzycha said, “I thought maybe I could do my rehab back in Kansas City.” To find out whether Ochocinco was offered an MLS contract, check out Monday’s edition of The Lantern. read more

Brazils gets ready to retain the crown

brazilMorten Soubak With less than a month to go for a new World Championship, Morten Soubak has designated 15 of the 16 players that will represent Brazil in both the Four Nations tournament in home soil and in Denmark, where they will defend the title obtained in Serbia two years ago.The last engagement before they take off to the Scandinavian country will be in the capital of Brazil, Brasilia, and Soubak hopes to make all the necessary adjustments to arrive in Europe in perfect shape: “These matches will help us to fully focus on the World Championship. We’ll continue to work on the aspects we worked on earlier this year during the training sessions in Sweden and during the friendlies with the team of Norway. We’re waiting for the IHF to make the final decisions regarding the new rules of the game, and if they’re officialized, we’ll have to make some changes in our training schemes”, he stressed on the Brazilian Handball Confederation website.The Four Nations will be held between the 27th and 29th of November and will count with the presence of neighbors Argentina, who will also be one of the opponents in group C in Kolding, Slovenia and Serbia, with whom they will re edit the final of the last World Championship.Ten of the athletes who lifted the trophy in Kombank Arena will be present in Denmark, one of them is captain Fabiana ‘Dara’ Diniz, who looks forward to polishing all the details before December 5th, when they debut against South Korea. In conversations with Handball­-Planet.com, this is what she said: “Playing at home is always nice because the Brazilian crowds are very passionate and cheerful, we just want to do it the best possible. Looking back to the matches prior to the last WC, we didn’t have the best results, but they were key to improve and adjust what we needed to adjust. Of course we want to win, but we’ll focus on finalizing the details and we hope that the people can enjoy a great tournament”.Diniz, who missed the last Pan American Games due to a deep venous thrombosis, is now fully recovered and made her comeback nearly a month ago, when Brazil spent a whole week in Fuerteventura, Spain, together with Sweden in a mixed training phase. That also marked the return to the NT of the IHF World Player of the Year, Eduarda ‘Duda’ Amorim, who is now recovered from a torn ACL on her left knee.Even though these are two very important comebacks, the Danish coach expressed that a few players “have unfortunately suffered injuries this year and some are still recovering”. He he hopes they can count on them as soon as possible, as the list still has an open spot for one last player. One of the ‘new faces’ on the team is the 19­year­old Bruna de Paula, who was part of the squads in the Youth and Junior WC last year, as well as the team who finished fourth in the Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing. “Bruna is a very young player who has a very effective attack, she’s a player who can make the difference”.This is not Soubak’s first bet on a young player; he also took a very young Hannah Nunes to Serbia, and the 20­year­old proved her value with very important interventions throughout the tournament, including two key goals in the final minutes of the medal match against the host nation.When asked about the odds of repeating the title in Denmark, Diniz responded: “I think it is possible. We know it will be very difficult; getting there was hard and trying to repeat the title will be even harder, but we know our way. In my opinion lots of teams could make it into the top three and I think Brazil is one of them”.This is the list of 15 players designated by Morten Soubak: Goalkeepers: Bárbara Arenhart (Nykobing F. Handboldklub ­ DEN), Mayssa Pessoa (CSM Bucarest ­ ROM).Wings: Alexandra Nascimento (Baia Mare ­ ROM), Célia Costa (Metodista/São Bernardo ­ BRA), Fernanda França (CSM Bucarest ­ ROM), Jéssica Quintino (MKS Selgros Lublin ­ POL).Backs: Amanda Andrade (UnC/Concórdia ­ BRA), Bruna de Paula (São José ­ BRA), Deonise Fachinello (CSM Bucarest ­ ROM), Eduarda Amorim (Györ Audi ETO ­ HUN), Ana Paula Rodrigues (CSM Bucarest ­ ROM), Francielle Gomes da Rocha (Vegus/Guarulhos ­ BRA).Line players: Daniela Piedade (Siófok KC ­ HUN), Fabiana Diniz (BBM Bietigheim ­ GER), Tamires Morena (Mosonmagyaróvári ­ HUN)TEXT: LAURA AGENA ← Previous Story VOTE FOR MIZUNO WORLD HANDBALL PLAYER 2015!

Ireland one of the top 20 most competitive holiday spots in world

first_imgIRELAND IS BACK in the top 20 most competitive places to visit according to a world economic index – but our fuel is still too expensive and cardon dioxide emissions record is disappointing.Transport, Tourism and Sport, Minister Leo Varadkar said that he was pleased that Ireland was in 19th place on the World Tourism and Travel Competitiveness Index – we fell out of the top 20 two years ago when we were ranked at no 21.Varadkar claimed that the return to the top table was a result of attempts to renew Irish tourism – and other wider economic measures which impact on prices here – but that there was still much to be done to keep prices competitive for visitors.The index, released by the World Economic Forum, found that the price of fuel in Ireland was comparatively high but Varadkar mentioned the Budget 2013 rebate for diesel would be helpful to the costs of operating tour coaches. That rebate, however, doesn’t kick in until 1 July.The Gathering project comes in for praise for its “ultimate goal of promoting an economic revival after the crisis”.According to the index, we score highly on policy rules and regulations (4th), environmental sustainability (9th), human resources (11th), tourism infrastructure (12th). We’re also considered a safe country to visit, coming in 12th on the index on that rating.However, on the table on carbon dioxide emissions, we rank just 118 out of 140 countries. As reported in TheJournal.ie this week, Ireland may have to pay up to €300m over the next eight years to make up for the fact that we will not reach greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets.The report, which you can read in full here, is the seventh such annual index and this year focused on the role that the travel and tourism sector has in job creation.Switzerland takes the number 1 spot in this year’s index, followed by Germany, Austria, Spain and the UK rounding out the top five.What’s so great about Switzerland and Germany, for example? The report authors cite the infrastructure (“among the best in the world”) as well as maintenance of their natural and cultural resources and their efforts to make all developments sustainable. Switzerland is also noted as an important business travel hub while there is a nod to the hosting of almost 600 international fairs and exhibitions in Germany in one year. Switzerland’s tourism, hotel and restaurant staff come in for praise – a consequence of the country having some of the world’s “best” hotel management schools.Spain was given a “most improved” tag, having moved up four places since 2011 to 4th place. It received the nod for its number of World Heritage sites, international fairs and exhibitions, its number of hotel rooms and “highly developed” air transport infrastructure.Guinea, Sierra Leone, Burundi, Chad and Haiti are bottom of the 140-strong list of countries on the index.Click here and here to see the Ireland stats in full-screen image: In pics: The winners and losers of Budget 2013>last_img read more

EU to probe racist attacks

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The Council of Europe’s human rights commissioner Nils Muiznieks is to visit Athens soon for talks with government officials about a sharp increase in racially-motivated attacks on immigrants that have been attributed to extreme right-wing supporters.Just a few days after international advocacy group Human Rights Watch expressed concern about an inadequate police response to a spike in racist violence in Greece, Muiznieks told To Vima newspaper that his office had received a large number of complaints about racially-motivated assaults, noting that in most cases it was “well documented” that the assailants were members of the extreme right-wing Chrysi Avgi (Golden Dawn).The commissioner expressed concern about the tendency of the party’s MPs to perform Nazi-style salutes, adding that the grouping resembles other ultra-right parties in Europe but was the most openly extremist and pro-Nazi among them.Source: Kathimerinilast_img read more

Fire ruins shed near La Center doesnt reach nearby house

first_imgFirefighters were able to keep a fire that destroyed a pole shelter and barn from spreading to a home west of La Center on Monday evening.Firefighters responded to the fire at 35107 N.W. 32nd Ave. around 5:30 p.m.“When they arrived, they found a fully involved outbuilding, and fire was being transmitted to this huge barn,” Clark County Fire & Rescue Division Chief Tim Dawdy said.There was also a running grass fire spreading out from the buildings.Cowlitz 1 Fire & Rescue sent two water tenders to back up three engines on the scene, Dawdy said, adding that the fire was out in about 30 minutes.The barn was about 15 feet from a nearby house, Dawdy said, which is occupied by an older widow.The barn and the small plastic-pole shed held tools, farming implements, a boat, paint and lacquers, Dawdy said, “so it burned hot and vigorously.”No one was hurt.The Clark County Fire Marshal’s Office was investigating.last_img read more

How to Get Out of the Traffic Ghetto

first_imgThe challenge for magazine publishers now, he says, is to take a step up out of the magazine site ghetto into competition with the real Internet players.Perhaps the biggest trend in publishers’ online playbooks these days is social networking—that is, building their own Facebook or MySpace communities within their urls. Fast Company announced in February the relaunch of its site with user profiles—representing a full-blown stab at social networking. “Our aim isn’t to create an impersonal business social network,” proclaimed Mansueto Digital president Ed Sussman, “but to greatly enhance the level of business conversation in the nation.”Also in February, Variety launched the Biz, for better or worse its attempt at a Facebook-style community. And Martha Stewart added social networking features to marthastewart.com last year.New ToolsWikis have clearly made an impression on magazine publishers—even if some admit they still have no idea what one is. Sports Illustrated launched an ambitious archival project, the SI Vault, opening up its 54-year archive to users for linking video, photos, statistics, and, of course, the obligatory Wiki-ing. SI executives hope all the cross-linking and search engine optimization inherent in the Vault will add 5 million monthly unique visitors to the 6 million it currently averages.Like SI, other publishers have stripped away the paid or subscriber walls surrounding their archives, and have seen a healthy bump in traffic for their efforts. The Atlantic opened its archive to non-subscribers in January, and has seen a 15 percent increase in page views. Newsweek opened its archive last fall. The New York Times made headlines in September when it ended its premium archive subscription program, TimesSelect, and opened up most of its archive to the public. According to the Times, search traffic to archive pages has more than doubled since doing so.Donahue points out that other sites have eschewed the traditional—and complex—navigation in favor of a stripped-down, reverse-chronological, bloggy approach. Popular Science, ReadyMade and a slew of other sites have made such a transition in recent years. Other magazines, like Complex and the Fader, have abandoned the traditional magazine Web site altogether, replacing it with a single blog.Other magazines have gone with a simpler—decidedly less sexy—approach. Publishers in the food category, for instance, have retrenched to build out their recipe sections—what Donahue calls “a proven strategy built on the original user generated content play”—and it’s paid off. Reader’s Digest’s AllRecipes.com gets 30 times the page views of rd.com. BHG.com is also above 100 million page views, while Epicurious and MarthaStewart.com lean on recipe content to drive top tier traffic. As most publishers know, there always seems to be a precipitous amount of bad news hanging over the magazine industry (newsstand and advertising numbers down, paper prices up). Yet, if trade magazine box scores are to be believed, online traffic for all magazines—both consumer and b-to-b—continues to grow.But, like all industry trends, the numbers tend to be skewed by the rarified air of magazines above, say, 10 million monthly page views. Indeed, unless you have photos of Lindsay Lohan as Marilyn Monroe, chances are your traffic is sitting somewhere far below that figure—in, for lack of a better term, the “traffic ghetto.”“‘Every magazine tells me great things about their Web strategy,’” wrote Discover Media CEO Henry Donahue, quoting a reporter with whom he was eating lunch, in a recent post on FOLIOmag.com. “‘Then I go back to check their Nielsen traffic and they’re too small to be measured.’”Magazine sites “have grown in the past few years by executing against the basics-unique online content updated multiple times per day, blogs, photo galleries, video, podcasts, user-generated content,” Donahue, a former CFO of Primedia’s Lifestyles Magazine Group, continues. “At this point, though, those features are just the price of admission.” Traffic-Driving TrendsSocial Networking.Fast Company is making a notable attempt to supercharge its user profiles into a full-blown social networking site. Though not a consumer site, Variety is also trying its hand at being Facebook-ish.Blogification.Several sites are jettisoning old-fashioned magazine navigation in favor of a stripped-down blog approach. Check out PopSci.com and ReadyMade. Recipes.Not as sexy as social networking or blogs, but a proven strategy built on the original user generated content play. Reader’s Digest’s AllRecipes.com gets 30 times the page views of rd.com. BHG.com is also above 100 million page views.

Cell Phone Providers Gear Up For Super Bowl In Houston

Virgin Qantas cool their engines

first_imgVirgin has cut capacity by 1.5 per cent in April compared with April 2013 according to its own measure of available seats. Virgin Australia and Qantas Airways have toned down their ongoing battle over domestic market capacity, with Virgin cutting the number of available seats for the third month in a row. However, Virgin’s actions represent a return to normal market conditions. Virgin’s decision comes off the back of Qantas’ earlier decision to freeze capacity after lower consumer confidence and a slowdown in flying by FIFO workers. Previously, the airlines have been increasing their number of routes and furiously adding capacity, with Qantas aiming to protect its market share at the expense of profit, The Sydney Morning Herald reported. Virgin Australia chief executive officer John Borghetti said at the Virgin AGM last year that the airline had completed a three year transformation of the network, prioritised regional areas and introduced wider bodied aircraft on some routes.  Source = ETB News: Tom Nealelast_img read more
