TORONTO – The Bank of Canada’s senior deputy governor is calling for authorities to work toward a coherent set of globally aligned policies governing cryptocurrencies.Carolyn Wilkins told a University of Toronto conference on Thursday that such a strategy will need to cover risks in both cash and derivatives products, as well as the related ecosystems.Wilkins referred to cryptocurrencies as “crypto assets,” rather than currencies because “they do not perform any of the key functions of money.”“While activity might be too small right now to be systemic, at some point they could have implications for financial stability,” she told the audience at the Rotman School of Management.“The crypto world is moving fast, and is largely unchecked.”In a speech that was largely focused on lessons learned from the global financial crisis, Wilkins said that risk raises concerns about investor protection, market integrity and the use of crypto assets in illegal activities.She also said during a question and answer session after her speech that it was important to have a strategy on crypto assets that is as consistent as possible across countries. The different forms of crypto assets, such as tokens, should be put on a “level playing field” with other ways of raising money, she added.Her comments come after the central bank governor raised concerns earlier this year about cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin. Stephen Poloz in January said Bitcoin was more akin to gambling than investing.If a digital currency would be to be widely adopted in the future, that would present major challenges for the central bank to execute monetary policy, she said.“Whether we do it or someone else does it, at some point digital is going catch on,” she said.“And the only way to understand it in my view is get in early on the ground level and work with the technology, and the entrepreneurs and the industry who are also working on it.”
By Eddahmani AbdeselamRabat – The price for sheep for the Eid Al Adha feast appears to have dropped in 2017, compared to recent years.“I bought two good sheep for MAD 3500, which is a good price, while in the last few years their price could be more than MAD 4500,” a buyer in the “Rahba” (sheep market) of Massira 2 in Temara, a few kilometers from Rabat, told Morocco World News. A cattle trader from Zhiliga, 73 kilomoters from Rabat, explained this drop by saying that his region “has seen a good agricultural year, thanks to God. Feed was available, and that has raised the quality of our cattle, which encouraged us to give good prices to sell them.”Earlier this month, the Ministry of Agriculture, Maritime Fisheries, Rural Development and Water and Forests told the Maghreb Arab Press (MAP) that national sheep and goat population had reached 25.47 million heads in 2017, 19.87 million sheep and 5.6 million goats, with an animal slaughter supply of about 9 million heads including 5.14 million male sheep, 1.75 million ewe lambs, and 2.11 million goats.[Office1] Last year the slaughter supply reached 8.6 million heads, including 4.9 million male sheep, and 3.7 millions heads of female sheep and goats.Last year’s agricultural season was marked with less rain falls which had an impact on agricultural productivity in comparison with this year.But despite the decline of prices, some sellers warned, buyers should be careful about the quality of the sheep they purchase. As a buyer our reporter, “Some sellers give their sheep medicines to make them look good in the market so they can sell them at good prices. If you don’t know how to choose you will end up with a sick sheep.”Security is also important, he added. “If you don’t have a car to carry your sheep, you should be careful not to get robbed by the transporters of cattle.”Eid Al Adha signals the completion of the Hajj pilgrimage, the fifth pillar of Islam. Morocco will celebrate Eid Al Adha (the Feast of Sacrifice) on September 1, which coincides with the 10th day of the Islamic month of Dhu Hijja.
“One of the growing concerns of the international community is the persistent ‘energy poverty’ that is seriously impeding socio-economic development, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa and in countries in South Asia,” Mr. Annan says in a report to the General Assembly on promoting new and renewable energy sources. Mr. Annan observes that accelerated development and increased use of new and renewable energy sources can offer multiple benefits for sustainable development. “Renewable sources of energy can be used to provide modern energy services to the poor, contribute to meeting the increasing global energy demand, reduce air pollution, mitigate climate change and delay the eventual fossil-fuel depletion,” he adds. The report concludes the UN’s follow-up to the World Solar Programme 1996-2005, the outcome of the World Solar Summit organized by the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in Harare, Zimbabwe. Mr. Annan says that while the initial plan of the Programme, which included assessment studies of renewable energy potentials and initiatives to boost investment in the area, was quite ambitious, the number of projects actually funded did not meet early expectations. Nevertheless, he says that a major impact of the Programme is that during the period of its implementation, new and renewable energy sources have begun entering the mainstream of national and international energy policy formulation and now constitute a major element of the global vision for sustainable development. But overall, Mr. Annan observes that although the share of energy derived from new and renewable sources is gradually increasing, the total share of commercial energy derived from solar, wind and other sources still remains far below its economic potential. And with large segments of the developing world without access to modern forms of energy, Mr. Annan says that meeting the UN Millennium Development Goal (MDG) of halving, by 2015, the proportion of the world’s population living on less than $1 a day would depend on providing these people with access to modern energy services for their basic needs and for income generation.
CALGARY – Cenovus Energy Inc. expects to grow oil production by 14 per cent next year, mainly thanks to expansion at its Christina Lake oilsands project in northern Alberta.Output is expected to range between 180,000 and 196,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day, compared with the rate of 165,000 Cenovus expects to end 2012 producing.Capital spending next year is expected to be between $3.2 billion and $3.6 billion, largely steady with what Cenovus expects to have spent in 2012.Meanwhile, this year’s cash flow is now forecast to come in lower than Cenovus (TSX:CVE) had previously anticipated because of lower crude prices, longer than expected maintenance downtime at U.S. refineries and a one-time cash tax expense.Cenovus shares were off about three per cent to $32.91 in midday trading Wednesday on the Toronto Stock Exchange.For all of 2012, cash flow is expected to be $3.7 billion, missing the range of $3.9 billion to $4.1 billion Cenovus forecast in October.“As we’ve moved through the fourth quarter, we have seen shifting market fundamentals,” CEO Brian Ferguson said on a conference call Wednesday.The widening gap between light oil and heavy oil, like that produced in the oilsands, shaved about $200 million off of Cenovus’ cash flow expectations this year, Ferguson said.But chief operating officer John Brannan said over 90 per cent of its exposure to light-heavy differentials will be mitigated in 2013.The two U.S. heavy oil refineries Cenovus jointly owns with Phillps 66 help cushion some of the blow, as do hedging programs and marketing arrangements that lock in a set selling price for its crude.The company also makes sure it has multiple options on the table to get its crude to market, Brannan added.“In 2013, we will continue to support major pipeline initiatives to a variety of markets. Specifically, we are supportive of pipelines to the U.S. Gulf Coast and the West Coast of Canada. We will be looking at East Coast projects to determine how each may fit into our marketing strategy,” he said.“Rail has also provided some flexibility on the transportation side. We are currently railing approximately 6,000 barrels per day of light oil and look to expand that to about 10,000 barrels per day in 2013. This helps us reach markets not currently available to us by pipeline.”In the refining business, cash flow was reduced by about $130 million as maintenance work took longer than expected and feedstock costs were volatile. For the full year, that segment is expected to bring in more than $1.3 billion in cash flow.Ferguson said next year, the refining business should be in good shape.“Refiners are now back up to full rates, which will benefit our refining performance in 2013 as cheaper feedstock purchased in the fourth quarter this year is going to be processed through the refineries next quarter.”Cenovus booked a $60 million tax charge during the quarter, but Ferguson said that move should lead to savings in the future.The company says the fourth phase of its steam-driven Christina Lake operation should hit full capacity around the middle of next year, when the project is expected to be producing 98,000 barrels per day. Later in the year, another expansion is expected to add an additional 40,000 barrels of daily output.Operational costs next year are expected to be slightly higher, as prices of natural gas, electricity and chemicals are expected to rise. by Lauren Krugel, The Canadian Press Posted Dec 12, 2012 1:30 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Cenovus sees 14 per cent production bump in 2013, to miss 2012 cash flow targets
What’s that under the Christmas tree? Why, it’s a software gift from the folks at Microsoft! Only… it’s not a Microsoft app, it’s Firefox. Yes, it’s that time of year again — when Microsoft makes web surfers do a double take by setting up a site from which it offers up a customized version of a competitor’s browser (with Microsoft custom defaults).Firefox with MSN ships with Bing as the default search engine, and the usual suspects (Yahoo!, Google, Wikipedia, Amazon) are available via the dropdown menu. MSN.com takes over homepage duties, and MSN Now (Microsoft’s revamped social news site) pins itself as an app tab.Existing Firefox users that want to see what life is like on the MSN side of the tracks can simply install an add-on that quickly customizes their browser. You could make all these tweaks yourself with pretty minimal effort if you really like this trio of Microsoft services, but you’d still be missing out on the custom theme. That said, the custom theme is really just a big glob of cerulean on the right half of the toolbar.Let year, Microsoft handed out Firefox with Bing. Why? Because if someone’s going to use a browser other than Internet Explorer anyway, you might as well at least get them checking out MSN Now and searching with Bing. Internet Explorer is still losing ground in the worldwide race for browser supremacy, and it’s not Mozilla who’s stealing users at this point. It’s Google.Firefox with MSN is just one more cog in Microsoft’s not-so-secret Anything But Google machine, which also extends over to Outlook.com — where they’re trumpeting a commissioned study that says 4 out of 5 Gmail users who tried Microsoft’s totally overhauled webmail experience would be willing to switch. Microsoft has also dropped an Outlook.com app into Google Play, where it can go head-to-head against Gmail on Android devices.via Mozilla

Kejriwal said his government has a zero tolerance policy against corruption. During his first stint as the chief minister in 2013-14, he had ordered a crackdown against corrupt officials. “During the last four and a half years, the Delhi government has come across officials who opposed public welfare policies for extraneous considerations and harmed the interests of Delhi,” a statement said.

But, the Centre should own the responsibility for the matters falling under it,” the chief minister said. Kejriwal said in view of the increasing incidents of crime, especially against women, his government is in the process if installing around 3 lakh CCTV cameras in the city which will act as deterrent and bring down the crime rate. The cameras will also help the Delhi Police obtain vital clues leading to the arrest of culprits. “I went to Safdarjung Hosital on Saturday to meet a 6-year-old rape victim. The accused got caught within hours with the help of CCTV footage,” he said. The project to install CCTV cameras across the national capital was one of the key poll promises of the Delhi government, but it got delayed due to differences with Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal over certain issues. Around 3 lakh cameras will be installed in all 70 assembly constituencies, government schools, and buses. The project is likely to be completed by December.

Los Cabos, Baja California Sur – A report by Excelsior of Grupo Imagen says that Spanish banks Bankia and Caixa Bank are involved in real estate fraud on land near Cabo Pulmo and into Playa del Carmen.Excelsior says that experts have found that the banks simulated the sale of land on beaches in Los Cabos. It is presumed that the fraud amounts to more than $150 million USD in federal taxes and more than $6 million USD to the municipality.The properties Vinorama and Piedras Bolas, valued at more than $370 million USD are in the zone of greatest value, however, they were sold below the commercial price.The tourist property Vinoramas, located in San José del Cabo next to several developments and near Cabo Pulmo with a size of 18.3 million square meters and more than 2 kilometers of beach, was sold to Imacor Desarrollos represented by Jorge Mercade Dura and Andrés Rubén Castillo Hernández, at a price of $10 million USD.Real estate experts pointed out that Vinoramas has a value at least 20 times greater, leading them to believe that the operation was a plan to save on corresponding taxes.A second plot of land was sold by the mercantile company Inmoviliaria Piedra Bolas, represented by Jorge Mercade Dura and Andrés Rubén Castillo Hernández, to the mercantile company Six Fund represented by Luis Raúl Lizárraga Duran.This property was sold for $5.5 million USD, which turned out to be 60 cents per square meter.A third plot was sold by Inmoviliaria Piedras Bolas to Itze Tourism represented by Jorge Domínguez del Pino and Iván Baldasano Ramírez, for a cost of $45 million USD, equivalent to $11 USD per square meter.However, the cost per square meter for this property is 1,000 peso, making the sale fraud and corrupt, say their real estate experts.They also say that in Quintana Roo, there have been simulated auctions of apartments in Playa del Carmen at prices of 15 percent of their real value, which legal experts point out, relates to fraud and even money laundering.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)
Source = e-Travel Blackboard: D.M Tourism Queensland has decided to postpone its major marketing campaign for the year, saying it would wait for the “dust to settle” following the spate of natural disasters which ravaged the State recently.An additional $10 million has been pumped into the tourism body by State and Federal Governments, to be used in both domestic and international marketing campaigns to lure visitors back to the State.Speaking at AIME, Tourism Queensland CEO, Anthony Hayes launched a five year strategy for its incentive market, which will promote the state to the world as a top destination for business travellers. “Tourism Queensland is partnering with Queensland’s convention bureaus on a collaborative global incentive strategy which aims to position Queensland as the region’s leading incentive travel destination,” Mr Hayes said.“The campaign aims to increase the understanding from incentive houses and companies about Queensland’s unique destinations and diverse, quality experiences.”The campaign will include a new trade website, www.queenslandincentives.com which will feature information on key destinations including Gold Coast, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, The Whitsundays, Mackay, Townsville and Cairns. “Tourism Queensland has now taken the initiative to create this collaborative strategy which will enhance the great work already undertaken by the convention bureaus and industry to promote Queensland,” Mr Hayes said.“The primary goal of the strategy is to further raise consumer, trade and industry awareness of Queensland’s multitude of quality incentive offerings in Tourism Queensland’s key international markets and in emerging incentive markets.“By engaging with key influencers and those who organise incentive travel programs, Tourism Queensland will aim to trigger broad levels of awareness and, in turn, generate sales leads.”With direct engagement with both consumer and trade, the strategy according to Mr Hayes is to pass on leads generated by the campaign and its tools onto the convention bureaus.”We really need to get into this space as aggressive as we can,” he said.Representing between $300 to $400 million for the State in trackable business, Mr Hayes said the incentives market was both lucrative and more reliable than the leisure market.
OCC: Bank Trading is Up, Credit Risk is Down Bank Trading Revenue Banks Credit Risk Exposure OCC 2017-01-04 Seth Welborn in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News Share January 4, 2017 646 Views The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), in its Quarterly Report on Bank Trading and Derivatives Activities for Q3 2016, found that trading revenue for commercial banks and savings associations declined over-the-quarter but rose substantially over-the-year in the third quarter last year.The OCC reported that bank trading revenue dropped by nearly 9 percent from Q2 to Q3 in 2016, from $7 billion down to $6.4 billion—but at the same time, which “reflects a decline in combined interest rate and foreign exchange revenue,” according to the OCC. At the same time, bank trading revenue shot up by nearly 20 percent from Q3 2015 to Q3 2016, an increase of approximately $1.1 billion.According to the OCC, bank trading results in the second and third quarters were the second-highest since 2000 for each quarter.While trading revenue was way up for banks, net current credit exposure (NCCE), the metric the OCC uses to evaluate credit risk in bank derivative activities, was way down over-the-quarter. The OCC reported that NCCE for banks and savings associations in the U.S. declined by 4.7 percent (approximately $24 billion) over-the-quarter in Q3, down to approximately $481.7 billion at the end of the quarter.NCCE is down substantially from its peak of $804.1 billion at the end of 2008 in the midst of the financial crisis at a time when interest rates were very low and credit spreads were very high, according to the OCC.“The significant decline in NCCE since 2008 has largely resulted from declines in the gross positive fair value (GPFV) of interest rate and credit contracts,” OCC reported.Also according to the OCC, 1,438 commercial banks and savings associations in the United States held derivatives in the third quarter while four banks held almost 90 percent of the notional amount of derivatives, defined by the OCC as the “nominal or face amount that is used to calculate payments made on swaps and other risk management products.”Click here to view the OCC’s complete report.

Most famously, inconsistent with Trump’s promise) But part of the effort will also be the PR appeal of mass public opposition “I have a pair of handcuffs that are sitting on my bookshelf” Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune told TIME last year “They may need to be used again” Correction: The original version of this story misstated the nature of President Trump’s executive action It involved presidential memoranda not executive orders Write to Justin Worland at justinworland@timecomBritish Treasury Secretary George Osborne warned on Friday that the United Kingdom economy was exhibiting “clear signs of economic shock” in the wake of a majority of voters advocating to leave the European Union signalling that the fallout from Brexit has begun in earnest Clear signs of economic shock in aftermath of Leave vote Will require supreme national effort but we can come through this challenge George Osborne (@George_Osborne) July 1 2016 There is indeed clear evidence for some of the shocks The value of the pound has fallen from $149 to $133 since the vote and the FTSE 250 group of UK-focused companies fell by more than 7% before staging a slight recovery But it is not yet clear when the impact will filter down to ordinary people One clear disadvantage for Britons already apparent is that buying dollars and euros is much more expensive which will make holidays more costly The devaluation of the pound will also increase the price of imported goods and anything made from them John Van Reenen head of the Centre for Economic Performance at the London School of Economics said that Britain’s Brexit decision will have both short-term and long-term consequences “There is a lot of uncertainty about the new arrangements which will lead to less investment slower growth lower pay and higher unemployment In the long run we will not have the same access to the European single market which will mean lower exports less foreign investments It will mean that we are all poorer” Some effects will take months but others will be noticed in days he said “The effect on the pound is noticeable now and this will quickly be seen in the price of fruit and vegetables for example Prices of goods that use foreign components will take longer to increase” says Van Reenen There are signs that property prices are set to fall Singapore-based United Overseas Bank suspended loan applications for London residential properties because of fears that investors could lose money and find it difficult to repay loans Major developers are also reviewing residential and commercial projects Mark Farmer chief executive of Cast a real estate consultancy told the Financial Times that most London real estate deals would be reexamined "The centre of the storm is going to be commercial property and speculative residential for sale" he said "Anything that has planning consent that hasnt been committed or anything that [has construction ongoing] on site but is a phased project is in harms way at the moment" Falling property prices are unlikely to benefit ordinary homebuyers in a stuttering economy Van Reenen says “A lot of people might say that a fall in property prices is a good thing but the prices will be falling for a bad reason; because there is less money around property will still be as unaffordable” UK unemployment which currently stands at 51% is also expected to rise Soon after the result of the referendum was announced Siemens suspended plans to export wind turbine blades from a new factory in in the northeastern city of Hull Juergen Maier the Siemens UK chief executive told the BBC that any investment decisions especially relating to exporting to the EU would be “put on ice” There were also reports of companies such as easyjet Morgan Stanley and JP Morgan moving headquarters or large numbers of staff from Britain to the EU The loss of such jobs combined with a reduction in economic activity could lead to a decrease in government revenue and force it to cut spending further depressing the economy Mark Carney the governor of the Bank of England said that many people would feel poorer and less secure In a speech on Thursday he said: "Today uncertainty has meant an inchoate sense of economic insecurity for many people despite generalised economic prosperity Across the advanced economies employment appears less secure wages more subdued and inequality more pronounced" The fallout from Brexit could also have a cumulative effect leading to a vicious circle of consumers reacting to an economic slowdown by consuming less and thus exacerbating the slowdown Van Reenen concluded: “With the pound falling this will lead to higher import prices and the cost of living will go up As our trade goes down this will lead to lower productivity and higher prices When faced with a crisis people cut down on demand which has a multiplier effect leading to greater unemployment and further pressure on demand” Osborne said that
