Cogeco working to restore reputation for service with system troubles fixed CEO

Companies in this story: (TSX:CGO, TSX:CCA)The Canadian Press MONTREAL — Cogeco says it has completed an system update in Ontario and Quebec that has caused months of problems for the cable and internet company.Chief executive Philippe Jette says Cogeco has fixed the problems experienced while installing a new customer management system at its Canadian internet and television operations.He acknowledged the problems resulted in a spike in complaints to the industry’s ombudsman and pushed customers to switch to competitors during the first half of the company’s 2019 financial year.The number of internet subscribers added by Cogeco in this year’s first and second quarters, ended Feb. 28, was essentially cut in half compared with the growth experienced during same period last year.It also lost nearly 9,650 video service customers over the six-month period, including 5,093 in the second quarter.Jette’s comments followed the release of the Montreal-based company’s second-quarter results after markets closed on Tuesday.Cogeco Communications operates cable systems in parts of Ontario, Quebec and the United States while its parent, Cogeco Inc., also has a media arm that’s primarily focused on French-language radio stations in Quebec. Cogeco Inc.’s net income attributable to shareholders was $25.7 million or $1.57 per diluted share for the second quarter ended Feb. 28.That was down from $2.82 per share or $46.6 million a year in last year’s second quarter, when Cogeco benefited from U.S. tax reform.Cogeco Inc’s revenue rose to $608.6 million in this year’s second quarter, from $554.1 million last year.Revenue at Cogeco Communications Inc., a publicly traded subsidiary of Cogeco Inc. that reports separately, was $584.1 million while profit attributable to its owners was $76.3 million or $1.53 per share. read more

Annan to Security Council consider more troops for UN mission in DR

The Secretary-General’s letter, released today, refers to his 27 May special report on the situation in the conflict-plagued DRC, in which he had recommended that the Council extend the mandate of the UN Organization Mission (MONUC) for a full year – until June 2004 – and that its military strength be boosted to nearly 11,000 troops. He also recommended that the possibility of imposing an arms embargo be considered in war-ravaged Ituri district as well as the Kivus.Yesterday, taking note of the Secretary-General’s recommendations and expressing “deep concern” over the continuation of hostilities in the eastern part of the DRC, the Council unanimously extended MONUC for another month, until 30 July. The 15-nation body followed that decision with a Presidential statement forcefully condemning the violence and calling on the parties in the area to fully commit to the political process and to “completely and decisively” renounce the military path.But the Secretary-General’s special report stresses that the magnitude of the challenges in the DRC should not to be underestimated, and he writes: “The country is still divided…the population is traumatized by years of conflict, the country is poverty stricken and State services and infrastructure are non-existent.” Other challenges stand in the way of transition, chiefly the brutal conflicts in the Kivus and in Ituri, where a “humanitarian catastrophe threatens to derail the overall peace process.” MONUC, he continues, is well, if not uniquely placed to play a central role in assisting the parties through the transition period.In his letter to the Council, the Secretary-General notes that while the deployment in Bunia of a multinational force has had a “stabilizing effect,” it is also clear that the temporary calm is a tenuous one. Heavy fighting in other parts of Ituri and in the Kivus was continuing and there were now fears that the escalating hostilities may spark an influx of internally displaced people into Bunia seeking safe haven.”The situation, in other words, may deteriorate seriously, especially if there is no continuum of appropriate security in Ituri,” Mr. Annan writes, stressing that it will therefore be imperative to do anything possible to avoid the creation of a security vacuum in Bunia after the expected withdrawal of the emergency force on 1 September.The letter also reminds the members of the Council that the deployment of the emergency force is only a “stopgap measure” and urges them to understand that extending the mandate of the force “is neither an option nor a solution.”In this light, the Secretary-General says, “it would be crucial for the international community to demonstrate solidarity with the plight of the Congolese people” by considering favourably the proposed increase in the capacity of the UN Mission to perform the tasks in Ituri. read more

UN health agency delivers medical aid inside Yemens Taiz city after blocked

The health supplies, which had been blocked from entering the city for eight weeks, were delivered to Al-Thawra, Al-Jumhoori, Al-Rawdha and Al-Ta’aon hospitals as of 31 January, WHO said in a press release.“Hospital staff in Taiz City are desperate for medicines and medical supplies so that they can continue to offer the most basic medical care. The delivery of these WHO supplies is a huge step that we are hoping will pave the way for the provision of more medical support to the city,” said Dr. Ahmed Shadoul, WHO representative in Yemen.The supplies include trauma kits, interagency emergency health kits, diarrhoeal disease kits and 170 oxygen cylinders, enough for about 35,000 beneficiaries. In addition, dialysis solutions were facilitated to Al-Thawra Hospital for 30,000 dialysis sessions for one year.WHO said that three districts in Taiz – Al Mudhaffar, Al Qahirah and Salah – still remain inaccessible and people are in urgent need of food, safe water and life-saving health services. Many hospitals have been forced to close their intensive care units due to a lack of fuel, medicines and health staff, and patients with chronic medical issues such as diabetes, kidney disease and cancer are struggling to access essential medicines and dialysis centres.Shortages in food have led to a significant increase in prices, with many people now unable to afford basic food items, resulting in increased risk of malnutrition, especially in children, WHO said. The main wells providing safe drinking-water have shut down due to interruptions in power supplies and a lack of fuel for generators.WHO added that earlier this week, an aid plane landed in Sana’a airport with an additional 40 tonnes of medicines and medical supplies, which will be distributed where they are most needed across the country.“It is vital that WHO and partners are given unrestricted access to all people in need, so that they can be urgently provided with life-saving health care,” Dr. Shadoul stressed.Since April 2015, ongoing violence and insecurity in Yemen continues to limit the delivery of aid to Taiz. In recent weeks, the UN has made repeated calls to all sides to allow humanitarian access to Taiz and all other besieged areas throughout the country where civilians have been deprived of the basic necessities of life. read more

Andrew Lansley attacks doctors union over unethical strikes

first_imgFormer health secretary Andrew Lansley has branded junior doctors “unethical” for threatening all-out strikes that could harm patients.Lord Lansley, who was replaced by Jeremy Hunt in 2012, also attacked the the doctors’ union, the British Medical Association, for being “nakedly political”.Speaking at the annual lecture of NHS Providers, the body that represents hospitals and other acute care providers, he compared the BMA to “proper trade unionists” that are “able to take their members with them”. He also cast doubt over the financial recovery plans currently being adopted by numerous deficit-stricken hospital trusts, saying that in some cases they were simply being used to slice services.Lord Lansley conceded, however, that he never expected financial restraint imposed on Government spending to last ten years from when David Cameron first took office in 2010, rather than the previously forecast five. He said: “Real trade unionists, they set out to identify what the best available deal for their members is and when they arrive at that they deal they make the deal, they don’t carry on.”Lord Lansley also condemned the “deplorable attacks” on Mr Hunt’s character during the long-running dispute.However, he suggested his successor should have kept a lower profile in the debate, and left it more to NHS executives to argue for the new contracts. Junior doctors strike Junior doctors are intending to strike againCredit:Ben Birchall/PAcenter_img “I think the one thing you shouldn’t do is give a chance to the BMA to make the NHS their political football any more than politicians should be kicking it around themselves,” he said.“Bruce Keogh (NHS England medical director) was pursuing a seven-day service in a clinically-led basis and NHS England and NHS Employers should have been the parties doing the negotiations.”The former Health Secretary also described as “nonsense” claims that the NHS was unsustainable, and said that the country should enjoy a “Brexit bonus” from 2019-20, as “both campaigns promised more money for the NHS”.

Lithium Australia moves to Kangaroo Island South Australia

first_imgLithium Australia NL (LIT) is making its first foray into South Australia’s lithium exploration and development sector with the lodgment of an application for ground prospective for lithium on Kangaroo Island. The application is the result of an ongoing strategy by Lithium Australia to continue to look Australia-wide to add to its strong domestic lithium holdings throughout Western Australia, Northern Territory, and Queensland, and overseas in Mexico.Continued national research identified prospective geological setting on Kangaroo Island, leading to Exploration Licence Application 2017/00005 which covers the most favourable ground on the eastern side of Kangaroo Island. The application area is located 100 km southwest of Adelaide and covers an area of 27 km2.The geological focus is on the pegmatite intrusives into the Tapanappa Formation of the Kanmantoo Group. The pegmatite is predominantly feldspar-quartz-muscovite with varying amounts of topaz, tourmaline varieties elbaite, rubellite and indicolite, graphite, citrine, and apatite. The Geological Survey of South Australia has noted lepidolite in the area.The small Mining Claim 4400 which covers the abandoned Dudley mine area; a collection of shallow pits and shafts in the pegmatite, lies within the ELA. The Dudley mine was worked during the 1890s and early 1900s for gem tourmaline, ceramic-grade feldspar, silica, and kaolin for brickmaking.Previous exploration has centred on assessing the pegmatites for kaolin and gem quality tourmaline, with no exploration for lithium being recorded.Managing director, Adrian Griffin said: “Our broadened nationwide search is designed to de-risk the company’s lithium exploration portfolio by providing exposure to multiple lithium opportunities across multiple state jurisdictions. The area we have identified on Kangaroo Island, South Australia, shows the hallmarks we are looking for. It is the right geological environment, has past identification of the lithium mineral suite and has some historic pegmatite mining. Like so many other areas across Australia, lithium has never been an exploration or production target on Kangaroo Island. Geographic diversity strengthens our portfolio and provides the opportunity to match the best available processing technology with the mineralisation types encountered”“The South Australia campaign adds to Lithium Australia’s strong and expanding project suite and technological alliances over 2017 with private and government stakeholders alike as well as its 100% ownership of the versatile Sileach™ processing technology and access to a number of other leading technologies.”LIT is a dedicated developer of disruptive lithium extraction technologies. LIT has strategic alliances with a number of companies, potentially providing access to a diversified lithium mineral inventory. LIT aspires to create the union between resources and the best available technology and to establish a global lithium processing business.last_img read more

Do you need the worlds strongest coffee

first_imgSO THERE YOU are at your desk in the morning, and it feels like this:Flickr/frankenzanSo you have the strongest cup of coffee you can make. But working is still a bit like this:Your coffee clearly isn’t working. Step forward, Death Wish Coffee:deathwishcoffee.comIt’s billed as “the world’s strongest coffee”, with 200 per cent more caffeine than the cup of joe in your average coffee shop.The extra caffeine comes from the selection of the right beans, according to the Death Wish website – which says strong-tasting coffee isn’t always actually the most caffeinated:Darker roast coffee beans have less caffeine than lighter roasted coffee beans. (The longer and darker you roast the coffee bean the more caffeine gets pulled/cooked out) Therefore, by roasting an Arabica coffee bean to a dark roast you have a coffee that is strong in flavor but not very strong in caffeine content.The website includes testimonials including:Thank you for making me shake so much that I can barely type this.

MP FYROM supporter outvoted by Greeks

first_imgMembers of the Western Australian Greek community claim that Eleni Evangel’s historic win in the WA elections last weekend was due to the opposition’s support of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) and the Greek Community banding together to vote against John Hyde. The former secretary of the Hellenic Community and present councillor of the city of Perth for eight years, Ms Evangel is the first Greek Australian to be elected into state parliament in Western Australia after a historic win in Saturday’s WA elections. The overall swing against John Hyde, holder of the seat, was 10.30 per cent with members of the Greek community claiming it was due to Mr Hyde’s support for the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM). Ms Evangel received 48.8 per cent of the votes over Mr Hyde’s 36.8 per cent. The Liberal candidate took a very strong Labor seat that has been held in WA for nearly 40 years. A source told Neos Kosmos that members of the Greek Australian community purposely voted against Mr Hyde for becoming involved in international issues against Greece. This prompted the Pan Macedonian Association of WA together with the Hellenic Council of WA to write to Mr Hyde in protest of his public support for FYROM, and his support for the former Foreign Affairs Minister Stephen Smith to have Australia change its position on the naming of FYROM debate. Following the letter, the secretary of the Hellenic Council of WA, Con Berbatis, and the President of the Florina Association of WA and Deputy President of the Pan Macedonian Association, Vic Toutountzis then visited the offices of Mr Hyde to further their complaint and warn him that the Greek community intended to make this an election issue to which they claimed he “arrogantly ignored requests”. A movement like this has similarities to when the Greek Australian community voted against the former MP Ron Edwards, Member for Stirling, for his support of the FYROM issue causing him to lose his seat in 1993. The Liberal Party celebrated a landslide victory over their Labor counterparts, with Labor conceding defeat and motioning to the current state of the Federal Labor Party as the reason behind their momentous defeat. The other four Greek Australian candidates in the WA elections – Jim Bivoltsis George Levissianos, Michael Georgiou and Peter Katsambanis – were not elected.

When music met physics

first_imgThey claim to be interested in quantum physics but are one of the upcoming metal bands in the city. Intrigued? We are too. Here’s talking to Heisenberg on what makes them tick, physics or music, or both.Where does the name of your band come from?Heisenberg was a renowned physicist. The members of our band have been fascinated with quantum physics and the name goes off pretty well when you are writing songs which deal with waves, consciousness and uncertainty in life. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’How did you start off?We were playing for various bands, sessioning for some, sharing our members and generally doing covers at college fests. Soon we realised the limitations of being another cover band. So we hit the studio in 2010 to record our first song, Thickskinned, which was a very rough recording with midi bass track and very weird programmed drums — but it helped us strengthen our profile and allowed us to participate in a lot of great college fests.

How has it been thus far?We have been around for two years now. Though there were no issues about the line-up initially and we were still learning the tricks and ways a band gradually learns from experience- dealing with our tones, gear, trying to balance college life with this and later, trying out a lot of people (which was a frustrating time for us). Now we have the right people to deliver the right sound and take this journey in the right direction.How did it feel to perform with three other bands at Metal Battle I?These are one of the finest upcoming bands in the scene.

Her spring line features ruffled sleeves, graphic tees, floral patterns and feminine pleated skirts meant to be dressed up for work or down with a pair of sneakers. (Photo by Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP) by Nicole Evatt, The Associated Press Posted Mar 19, 2018 9:37 am PDT Last Updated Mar 19, 2018 at 10:20 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Eva Longoria is a master of multitasking.The 43-year-old actress is producing a new pilot, continuing her work with the Time’s Up initiative, launching her clothing line on HSN and preparing to welcome her first child with husband Jose “Pepe” Baston.“I have two babies,” said Longoria with a hearty laugh. “My line and my actual baby in my stomach.”For Longoria, who has been sewing and designing since she was 7, everything comes back to championing women.“You have to be comfortable not only physically in what you’re wearing, but like comfortable in your skin. Does that empower me? Do I feel like this is my best self today? And that’s what my collection is meant to do.”The former “Desperate Housewives” star has been rallying for parity in Hollywood and beyond alongside the Time’s Up campaign, which raised $20 million and helped 1,500 women with harassment suits. She gave an impassioned speech at the recent women’s march in Los Angeles and called out E! over a pay equity dispute with former anchor Catt Sadler during an interview with the network at the Golden Globes.“It’s not a moment, it’s a movement,” she said of continuing the momentum after Hollywood’s awards season. “It needs to be celebrated and applauded every time we have an accomplishment. But at the same time, we just need to keep moving it forward and we need to keep making real change.”The thread of female empowerment is also woven throughout the Eva Longoria Collection.“I wanted to really get inspiration from real women in the world and I wanted to use my global travels to, you know, give it a personality of not only Eva’s DNA, but a global DNA of like women everywhere doing everything,” she said.Her spring line features ruffled sleeves, graphic tees, floral patterns and feminine pleated skirts meant to be dressed up for work or down with a pair of sneakers.During an interview in Los Angeles, Longoria showed off patterned crepe jumpsuits, which she calls “onesies,” wide-legged pants and comfy stretch denim she promised will ward off the dreaded muffin top.Longoria sported one of the collection’s popular bomber jackets in floral-print jacquard, joking that it’s the only thing that fit her growing belly.“I’m in the golden months of energy!
