CBREs 2018 forecast shows flat real estate market in CalgaryCBREs 2018 forecast shows flat real estate market in Calgary

first_imgAfter years of recession, Calgary’s economy seems to be turning around and CBRE’s 2018 real estate forecast suggests that is good news for the market.CBRE’s Alberta Regional Managing Director Greg Kwong doesn’t see any major distress this year.On the retail side, the most volatile segment of the market, expect the up and down to continue.“Certainly a lot of churn,” said Kwong. “We haven’t seen a major increase in our vacancy rate and we’re still seeing smaller regional shopping centres being built in some of the newer areas.”There are green shoots of hiring which is good news when it comes to office space and vacancy rates will remain flat, at around 26 per cent. Kwong said it will likely be like that for the next few years.“There’s no real sentiment that we’re going to bounce back and be back to a 2 per cent vacancy and that all those people that lost their jobs are going to be back in the next two months,” he explained.The situation is also helped by the fact there aren’t any huge office towers opening.Industrial space continues to be in high demand in Calgary with the vacancy rate continuing to dip this year.The multi-family rental market is improving. Vacancies are expected to be about 6 per cent, a full percentage point lower than 2016, with average 2-bedroom going for $1,250. The number of new units will also be half that of 2017.last_img read more

Telecom company FairPoint unions for 1700 workers reach tentative deal to endTelecom company FairPoint unions for 1700 workers reach tentative deal to end

Telecom company FairPoint, unions for 1,700 workers reach tentative deal to end 4-month strike AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by David Sharp, The Associated Press Posted Feb 19, 2015 1:46 pm MDT PORTLAND, Maine – Northern New England’s primary landline provider, FairPoint Communications, and two unions representing more than 1,700 workers have reached a tentative agreement to end a four-month strike, officials announced Thursday.A joint statement from the company and unions didn’t provide any details of the proposal that will be put to workers for ratification votes starting Friday. Voting will take place following briefings held through the weekend, and workers will return to their jobs on Wednesday, union officials said.“The new labour agreements will provide employees with wages and benefits that are among the best in northern New England. At the same time, the agreements permit the company to achieve a much more competitive position in the marketplace,” the statement said.FairPoint workers in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont went on strike in October.The tentative agreement follows more than six weeks of federally mediated negotiations.Mike Spillane, a business manager for the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers in Burlington, Vermont, said negotiators found middle ground on pensions, health care and contract work without sacrificing the unions’ core principles.“There are things that you like and things that you need. We got what we needed,” he said. “We’ll put it out to members. They’ll be pleased with some of the things in there.”Workers greeted the announcement with enthusiasm.“Nobody expected it to go on this long. It’s unfortunate that it had to go on this long,” said Matt Polo, a line worker based in Bangor, Maine. “I’m anxious to hear the details, and I’m anxious to get back to work.”Added Steve Soule, who works out of Manchester, New Hampshire: “There is a feeling of great pride in the resolve of our membership.”On Thursday, pickets were gone from FairPoint’s state headquarters in Maine. The Falmouth Police Department was told officers were no longer needed as of Friday. Meanwhile, the Portland Police Department was told to scale back to a single officer outside the building.Leading up to the announcement, there was a big gulf between the two parties.The previous contract included lucrative provisions that dated to the days when Verizon was the owner, and FairPoint said the new contract needed to bring worker benefits in line with changes in the industry.Negotiators from the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and the Communications Workers of America knew concessions were necessary but contended the company was asking for too much too fast.FairPoint Communications Inc., based in Charlotte, North Carolina, wanted to require workers to contribute to health care costs for the first time, freeze and replace the old pension, eliminate retiree health care benefits for current workers, and have the ability to hire outside contractors.Pete McLaughlin, chairman of the unions’ bargaining committee, said a gag order imposed by mediators allowed both sides to speak freely and to make progress toward a “fair” deal. “We achieved our objective in protecting good-paying jobs with good benefits in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont,” he said.The stakes were high for both the company and workers. During the 17-week strike, service outages and restoration delays brought criticism from consumers and regulators alike. New Hampshire temporarily held up a $13 million contract amid complaints.FairPoint, which bills itself as the nation’s sixth-largest telecom company, provides service in 17 states, but the lion’s share is in the three northern New England states, where the company has about 1 million lines.The company has struggled since buying Verizon’s landline holdings to the region for $2.3 billion in 2007. Eighteen months after the deal closed, it filed for bankruptcy after losing customers because of operational and integration problems. It has continued to struggle since emerging from bankruptcy in 2011.___Associated Press reporter Patrick Whittle in Portland contributed to this report.___Follow David Sharp on Twitter at https://twitter.com/David_Sharp_AP FILE – In this Jan. 23, 2015 file photo, Fairpoint employees Amber Lyman, left, and Julie Sawtelle picket outside the Fairpoint offices in Portland, Maine.

Torex Golds Media Luna PEA to feature innovative Muckahi transport optionTorex Golds Media Luna PEA to feature innovative Muckahi transport option

first_imgTorex Gold is weighing up the use of an innovative technology that could provide an efficient and cost effective means of moving people, mining devices, and ore out of steep underground mines.The company, which is back in action at its ELG gold mine in Mexico after a long strike at the operation that started in 2017, said in its June quarter results that it had recently come to an agreement with its CEO, Fred Stanford, to acquire his interests in ‘Muckahi’.Stanford conceptualised and patented the Muckahi process and has been working with Canada-based engineering firm MEDATECH to develop his methods and come up with the necessary equipment to make his process work.Muckahi makes use of overhead rails as an efficient and cost effective means of moving people, mining devices and ore out of steep underground mines. The modififed machinery also allows for increased production rates and less handling, moving the process towards continous production, according to MEDATECH.The mining system is currently in the evaluation stage, but is being considered for use at Torex’s Media Luna gold project in Mexico. There is a revised preliminary economic assessment on Media Luna due soon that is expected to feature the use of this technology.The 2015 PEA on Media Luna envisioned an underground operation with expected average annual production of 313,000 oz of gold-equivalent at an average all-in sustaining cost of $636/oz.The recovery of the Media Luna resource was planned to be through underground mining methods at 7,000 t/d with the mineralised material transported via a hybrid underground/aerial/underground rope conveyor to the ELG processing plant. The conveyor belt would be 6.7 km in length with a 360 m vertical drop over its length.Torex said it was planning to run a technical session for investors and analysts on the Muckahi process next month.last_img read more

Public outrage causes despicable draftlaw on pets and stray animals to bePublic outrage causes despicable draftlaw on pets and stray animals to be

first_imgSupervising Agricultural Minister Vangelis Apostolou has once again been forced to withdraw the draft law for pets and strays in the country, which the majority of the public deemed cruel and irrational.The new draft law would transfer all management of strays and pets to municipalities, penalising stray’s care and adoption promotions via social media. The cruel amendments to the law would also fine vets for helping animals that have not been desexed and microchipped and impose several fees, taxers and even fines on pet owners.“The draft law will be re-introduced when relevant changes have been made,” Apostolou said in a short statement earlier this week defending the draft in was was described as “aggressive tone” by his critics on social media.The aim was to transfer the management of strays to municipalities, excluding animal welfare societies from the process while creating online e-shops for the adoption of strays via municipalities websites.“Foreigners could combine their holidays in Greece with the adoption of an animal by surfing in the municipalities websites,” the draft states.People posting on social media or other media promoting pet adoption would see fines up to 1,000 euros.Meanwhile, sterilisation of all pets would be mandatory unless an owner would have one male and one female animal where each animal would require a cash fee of 100 euros. Non – sterilised pets would also be fined with 100 euros.The new proposal would also enforce accommodation criteria for pet owners who would have to register their pets at the municipality and have mandatory passports issued at 15 euros. The passports would have to be found on the owner even when taking the dog (or cat) for a walk around the area, not only when travelling. The fine for not complying was suggested at 300 euros.Only one pet would be kept in a flat of 35 sq meters. Dogs would require an additional dog house even if in an apartment lacks balcony or backyard space.Vets would be prohibited from treating non-sterilised and non-microchipped animals brought in even if they were seriously injured or sick; a violation would see the vet be fines with 3,000 euros.A fee would also be imposed on pet food, and another 10 euro fee on every sterilised pet.While the extent of some of these measures and the amount of fines that would go towards people caring for strays may seem absurd, the same draft-law suggested reduced penalties for animal abuse.Moreover, the draft-bill only recognises cats and dogs as companion animals; bunnies, guinea pigs, birds, reptiles and so on are not considered pets.Additionally, every person that cares, feeds, protects in any way a stray animal would be defined as an animal owner asked to pay for every animal he is seen feeding or interacting with on the street. The new measures “will force volunteers to stop caring for stray animals thus keeping stray animals off the streets”.At the moment, animal welfare organizations had taken it upon themselves to procure marking microchips at a low cost from the free market making it easy for people wanting to adopt pets to do so. This would no longer be legal; only municipalities would be able to issue microchips at a much higher cost.Animal welfare organisations and animal owners are pushing for the minister’s resignation as the government is now allowing massive euthanasia and exile of strays, or pets that cannot be kept in the house based on the new amendments. If such a bill is passed thousands of Greek citizens would be obliged to discard their pets.According to media, Apostolou withdrew the draft law following a meeting the Panhellenic Animal Welfare and Environment Federation and which was supposed to remain for consultation for three months. However, the first draft of the law was withdrawn in February 2018 and was reintroduced this week in even harsher form.After the withdrawal announcement, veterinarians, animal welfare organisations stated that “we will fight with all our means to ensure no such animals law comes to effect,” adding that the new draft bill should not just list cats and dogs as pets. Thousands of vets and animal lovers that have made it their life’s cause to care for animals demand that they won’t be fined or persecuted for treating strays or wild animals.Minister Giannis Tsironis of Greece’s Eco-Greens party said in a statement that the new draft-bill will be released for public consultation in 30 days.

Merson slams Ramseys contract situationMerson slams Ramseys contract situation

first_imgPaul Merson lambasted his former side Arsenal for their poor handling of Aaron Ramsey’s contract situation.Arsenal are set to lose Ramsey to Juventus for nothing this summer after the Wales international agreed on a deal with the Serie A champions after his contract was allowed to run down.Merson went on to call his former club “stupid” for letting an experienced player like Ramsey leave the club in the prime of his career.“It’s stupidity from Arsenal to allow someone of Ramsey’s quality to let their contract run down,” he told Sky Sports.Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“It’s yet another player after Alexis Sanchez, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Theo Walcott.

Nintendo will let 500 fans play the new The Legend of ZeldaNintendo will let 500 fans play the new The Legend of Zelda

first_imgThose deemed eligible to play will receive a wristband and an appointment time guaranteeing them some play time between June 14-19. Depending on how Nintendo manages that, we could see some of these wristbands appearing on eBay, but hopefully they are ID-limited to stop that happening.If you can’t get to the Nintendo NY store, don’t worry, you’ll still be able to watch The Legend of Zelda being played. A livestream from E3 will be available to watch, with a 15-foot screen in the store also showing the footage. <> The next Zelda game will be the 19th main installment of the series and carries the name The Legend of Zelda. It’s one of the more frustrating releases for fans because we all expected to be playing it on the Wii U in 2015. Well, that clearly didn’t happen, and while the game is still seeing a launch on the Wii U, it has now also become a game for the NX.By adding the new platform, Nintendo has automatically pushed the release date back to at least March 2017 when the NX launches. Will The Legend of Zelda be a launch game? Nobody knows outside of Nintendo, so we are left with a few aging screenshots and the gameplay teaser from 2014:All hope is not lost, though! In fact, some of you may be playing the game next month!Nintendo has announced that between June 14-19 it is going to allow 500 Nintendo fans to play The Legend of Zelda on Wii U at its Nintendo NY store. In order to have a chance of being one of the 500, you need to attend a “Super-Fan Signup Day” on Saturday, June 11. It opens at 9am at the store, and Nintendo will select the first 500 eligible people lining up. So I imagine this could be like an iPhone release day where people start camping outside the day before.last_img read more

Cutting Down Costs Not TreesCutting Down Costs Not Trees

first_img This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. 3 min read Enroll Now for Free Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Nowcenter_img June 29, 2007 Who: Hayden Hamilton, 30What:GreenPrint Technology, eco-friendly software that eliminates wasteful pages before they’re printedWhere: Portland, OregonAnyone who works in an office or has a printer at home has experienced the frustration–and guilt–of printing a one-page e-mail, only to be forced to throw away three extra pages of unwanted legal jargon and banner ads. Thanks to GreenPrint Technology’s analytical software, you’ll not only save money wasted on paper and ink, but you’ll also save a tree or two.The average employee prints six wasted pages per day. At an average of $0.06 a page, employers are spending nearly $85 a year–per employee–in wasted paper.”On top of the clear waste it’s producing, it’s also creating inefficiency,” says company founder Hayden Hamilton. For him, the final straw came after noticing the huge amounts of wasted paper being created at his former office. The large, five-story office building had 20 to 30 print stations, each overflowing with unwanted printouts by 11 a.m. The mess forced busy executives to root through stacks of paper on the printer–and even the floor–trying to locate a document they printed 10 minutes earlier.Hamilton’s solution was a program that analyzes the content of each print job for pages that have wasteful characteristics, such as legal jargon you’d find in an e-mail from a bank or airline and pages that contain a single URL or banner ad. All the pages in the document are displayed on one screen, with the pages detected as wasteful highlighted in red. The user has the option of quickly adding and removing pages from the print job with a click of the mouse. In addition, images you don’t need to print, such as pictures and ads, can be removed to save ink. According to Hamilton, GreenPrint can save larger companies up to 20 percent in reduced costs and increased efficiency.Starting an eco-friendly company was only natural for Hamilton, who grew up in the Pacific Northwest and headquartered his company in Portland, Oregon, one of the top 10 “green” cities in the U.S., according to National Geographic’s “The Green Guide.” “Being environmentally conscious was instilled in me at an early age,” he says, recalling the time he spent at his grandmother’s house every summer, hiking and playing outdoors. As an active member of the eco-friendly Sierra Club, she taught Hamilton the importance of protecting the environment.Today, Hamilton is proud of GreenPrint’s potential impact on the environment. According to his website, a Fortune 500 company using GreenPrint Technology would save more than $2 million in reduced costs, save more than 4,000 trees and prevent 12,623 tons of carbon dioxide emissions each year. And if all new computers used GreenPrint, it would save more than 36 million trees every year and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by more than 117 million tons–the equivalent of removing 23 million cars from the road for an entire year.Hamilton is hoping to make this predicted environmental impact a reality. He’s already working with Fortune 500 companies, and the product can currently be purchased online for $35 for the home-user version.Hamilton, who launched GreenPrint in 2005, expects sales of $5 million to $10 million in 2007. His biggest reward, however, is seeing the impact his small company of five full-time employees is making on the world. As his mission statement so proudly boasts, he really is saving money today, trees tomorrow.last_img read more

Go back to the enewsletter A welcome that is wellGo back to the enewsletter A welcome that is well

first_imgGo back to the enewsletterA welcome that is well thought-out and personalised creates the kind of memory that brings luxury travellers back again and again. Take the arrival at InterContinental Lisbon. It was 11.45 p.m. The lift stopped at the 17th floor (you know that from blue and white Portuguese tiles set on the wall opposite the lift doors to form a metre-high 17). In room 1710, a unique Lisbon treat awaited me in the form of three really warm custard tarts. And not just any tarts but Pastéis de Belém, as made since 1837, today still fashioned by hand to a recipe from the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos that was devised by de-frocked monks after monasteries were closed during Portugal’s Liberal Revolution in 1820.This is a 331-room hotel that, thanks to Eric Viale, IHG’s Area Manager – and soon to be head of France – continually reminds you of Portugal, past and present. The samovar in the Club Continental lounge, a clever conversion of the rear of the main lobby, has Portuguese tiles as buttons (and there are the hotel kitchen’s excellent version of custard tarts on the breakfast buffet).This is a 19-floor hotel that literally, from the high spot above Parque Eduardo VII, dominates this beautiful city. And beautiful it is, litter-free and full of lovely, helpful people. In 2017, the number of tourists to Portugal surged 12% to 12.8 million and this year a further rise of 12% is expected (hotels are full and there are not enough of them). The InterCon, as it is often called, opened in 1985 as Le Méridien Lisboa. In 2003, as part of the Tiara group, it was renamed Park Atlantica Lisboa, and in 2014 the owners sensibly decided that InterContinental was a better brand. It is a very well thought-out hotel, with an excellent 24/7 LifeFitness gym, with lots of fresh fruit – always a sign that the GM cares about wellness.As I left what is really an unforgettable and admirable hotel, I marvelled at the futuristic video in the elevator. I went out, into the blazing sunshine, to be greeted by a posse of television cameras, and then up rolled a mammoth BenficaTV bus. Lisbon’s Benfica football team (‘The reds’), a publicly quoted company, has, with 14 million supporters worldwide, the honour of having the highest percentage of supporters in its own country. It can certainly pay for such a bus. Last September it reported profits of €44.5 million, enough also to support its own television network, BenficaTV, and a weekly newspaper. From custard tarts to a football bus, I smile at lovely Lisbon today.One of the many reasons the city is such a tip-top luxury destination, by the way, is its infrastructure – buy a Lisboa card online beforehand for free transport and many cultural admissions, and pre-booked airport pickup to avoid peak-time lines for taxis. Another reason is its really super people, who normally have excellent English and, regardless, want to help. After leaving the InterContinental I was on my way to Estoril and had not realised some buses do not run at weekends. I was rescued by a non-speaking Jehovah’s Witness, who understood the written words Estoril and Alcântara-Mar station; she left her conversion booklets and became a guide for seven minutes. Thirty minutes later, I got off the train at Mont-Estoril, the last stop before Cascais. On one side, immediately, was the beach. On the other side, high above the train station, soared a futuristic grey-steel sculpture of a hotel.This is InterContinental Estoril, an anomaly, 52 rooms slotted into one end of three floors of a seven-floor residential block, but fortunately, the power of the brand means the IHG logo is as big as it can be, both ends of the block. I think the interior was divided up by Dr Rubik, or a jigsaw maker. To get to lovely end suite 201 from the lobby I turned right, then left, past the all-glass wall looking into the Atlantica Residences’ lobby: at the lifts on my left I pressed where I wanted to go, and took the arriving lift down to the second floor. Sometimes, at that floor, it let me out one side, to the spa, sometimes to the other, to the corridor. But I did immediately fall in love with my suite. I looked down at the hotel’s garden and outdoor pool, and across over the tops of trains to the ocean. And I was quickly enamoured of the food.The hotel’s restaurant, which is run by IHG, is Atlantico, an old single-floor tiled-roof house three minutes’ walk from the hotel, with full signing privileges. It is superb. At lunchtime, there is a sizeable terrace, but as evening progresses, this is covered in with a concertina of glass panels. No flowers on the tables; only big inner-lit white glass bowl-shaped lights on gold stands. Turquoise Chilewich mats are so suitable for this ambience, and I went Portuguese, including a local red wine, Monte da Ravasqueira 2017. Bread included half-slices of rustic white, olive baguette or brown wholemeal, with Portuguese Distintus oil.I should know by now that you cannot keep a good chef down and Daniel Abreu, helped by consultant Miguel Laffan, sent out a deep-fried cod patty as a preamble. Then it was my choice. I started with Azores tuna tartare with ginger, lime and sesame oil, and went on to seafood tagliatelle with champagne and saffron sauce. Although there are dozens, if not more, casual eating places within 20 minutes’ walk, Atlantica was doing very nicely indeed, both from the unusually discerning guests this unique hotel attracts and also from local residents. I hear Estoril is so popular with expats, who get 10 years’ tax exemption if they move here, that it has four international schools.Estoril is mentally uplifting, even for a brief visit. That was my first thought on waking up and looking across the two balconies of suite 201 at the sunrise. Estoril also has unusually thoughtful and creative people. As well as selections of fruit and lots of water, waiting in suite 201 was a spiral-bound book, a personalised travel journal. Carina Rodrigues, who says she herself always keeps a travel diary, had led this compilation, and over a dozen of her colleagues had signed the foreword. It was actually amazingly humbling to look through and realise how much work had gone into all this, a reminder of travels that had covered much of the world, with photos going back many years as well as 2018’s Greenland and Iceland.Memories came rushing back. I arrived in Geneva once when Mandarin Oriental had a lifesize cow-for-charity outside its front door. Philippe Leboeuf, GM of Mandarin Oriental Paris, was visiting, and he joined his Geneva colleague, Lars Wagner, for a photo. The book went on and on, but I had things to do, like find my way back to the gym, which uses mind-fitness to find, through several all-wall glass panels which sometimes open automatically, sometimes not. I joined the locals, too, in an early morning power-walk along the coast path, between the rail line and the sea: it is only 15 minutes to Cascais. Later in the day, the small, sandy protrusions that constitute beaches will be chock-a-block with sun worshippers. Now, there are only sunbeds, in military order.Breakfast at InterContinental Estoril is a delight, especially if you are early. You are in the main hotel, rear of the sunny lobby which opens on to a glass-sided terrace. An adjacent inner room has the full buffet. I meditated while enjoying great figs and papaya, and looking at the view. There is a library room here, too, where previous guests have left books. An eclectic collection in English, German and Portuguese gives an indication of who stays here – a couple of times I have talked to an athletic father and two early-teen kids who have also just arrived. The daughter, about 13 and as poised as model Kalya Gerber (16 years old and new ‘face’ of Karl Lagerfeld), carries a Louis Vuitton shoulder bag, suitably worn.This is a hotel for the discerning, who want quality. The curvilinear outdoor pool, below my terrace, is uncluttered, as if it were your pool back home. For those who are driving, the valet service was one of the quickest I remember – there is a mass of carpark space under the hotel, as you see when taking a shortcut to the rail station and the sea. For those, like me, who relish every bit of exercise, you can bypass the lift-down-to-carpark and, instead, walk outside, two minutes down a cobbled slope and then take 50 wood steps down to the rail station carpark. Just as I got there, the time for my train, 11.09, approached, and only two seconds later, in pulled the railcar and I began my scenic coast-hugging trip back to central Lisbon.Go back to the enewsletterlast_img read more
