Economist predicts two to three per cent drop in seasonal hiring in

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Economist predicts two to three per cent drop in seasonal hiring in Alberta by Kaitlin Lee Posted Oct 25, 2016 7:14 am MDT It may be more competitive for Albertans looking for seasonal work this year.A local economist expects staff will be needed but there will be a lot less traffic in the service sector.Hiring for the holidays could be down two to three per cent.ATB Financial’s Chief Economist Todd Hirsch said retailers are anticipating a slower pace.“But that said, I think, you know, Albertans are still shopping, they’re still spending money. They might be a little more selective in what they’re buying, or how much they’re spending. So, you’re still going to need staff in those stores,” he said.It could mean a tiny temporary lift to November’s job numbers.And there is a bright spot: more Albertans are likely to stay put during the holidays and spend more of the cash they do have closer to home.“And as a result, you might actually see, you know, sales down not quite as badly as we’d expect, simply because more people are going to be staying home,” Hirsch explained.Hirsch says businesses will likely have no trouble filling any open positions as the number of people who’ve lost their jobs means more willingness to work in the service sector than in the past.

Department monitoring water conditions at Lake Cumberland

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – Biologists with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources are closely monitoring water conditions at Lake Cumberland with fish starting to show signs of stress due to elevated water temperatures and depleted oxygen levels.“We have been experiencing some shad and alewife die-offs in different parts of the lake the past few weeks, which is due to the continued high water temperatures and deteriorating oxygen levels,” said Marcy Anderson, Southeastern District fisheries biologist with Kentucky Fish and Wildlife. “The striped bass bite had been good up to this week, but now the fish are getting sluggish, which is a sign they are getting stressed due to poor water quality conditions.”- Advertisement – Lake Cumberland, a 50,250-acre reservoir in southern Kentucky, reaches a depth of 200 feet in the old river channel near Wolf Creek Dam. Its depth allows the lake to support cool-water species, such as walleye and striped bass.A combination of factors can deplete critical dissolved oxygen levels in the cooler water depths preferred by these species.When flooding rains swelled Lake Cumberland to record levels earlier this year, record discharges followed from Wolf Creek Dam. When water is discharged, it is pulled from the cooler depths of the lake.Related Article: Volunteers help keep Lexington’s creeks healthy“What we have in Lake Cumberland is not unique; it’s something you see in a lot of larger lakes,” said Ron Brooks, Fisheries Division director with Kentucky Fish and Wildlife. “You have a normal thermocline below which you have cooler unoxygenated water. You go down another 40 feet and there is an additional oxygenated layer. That layer is where your walleye and your big stripers hang out. When the dissolved oxygen in that deeper layer disappears, we get fish kills.”Anderson said striped bass and walleye become stressed when dissolved oxygen levels fall below 3 mg/L. They can survive at levels below 2 mg/L, but not for an extended time.Dissolved oxygen levels measured Monday near Jamestown were inadequate or marginal below 30 feet. At the dam, dissolved oxygen levels were inadequate or marginal below 35 feet. Unfortunately, near the surface, where dissolved oxygen is adequate, water temperatures are too warm. Striped bass and walleye generally prefer temperatures between 64 and 77 degrees.“Normally we have a layer of suitable dissolved oxygen and preferred temperatures for striped bass and walleye in the lake,” said Jeff Ross, Fisheries Division assistant director. “But the dissolved oxygen in the temperature bubble is disappearing. We’re concerned that both species will continue holding in that cooler water until the oxygen runs out and they’ll become trapped.”Fish species in the lake that are more tolerant of warmer water, such as smallmouth and largemouth bass, crappie and bluegill, are not as affected by the current conditions.“There’s nothing we can do to add oxygen to that lower level,” Ross said. “We just need cooler weather to bring surface temperatures down.” read more

Report Chris Ash expected to leave Ohio State to take head coaching

OSU co-defensive coordinator and safety coach Chris Ash instructs players during spring practice in 2015. Credit: Lantern file photoOhio State co-defensive coordinator and safeties coach Chris Ash is finalizing a deal to become the next head coach at Rutgers, according to reports first filed by Sports Illustrated. Ash first came to OSU in January 2014 after a year coaching the secondary at the University of Arkansas. Since arriving in Columbus, Ash has helped turn the Buckeye defense into one of the nation’s premier units. OSU finished the 2015 regular season ranked 10th in the nation in defense, surrendering just 302 yards per game. Through 12 games, the “Silver Bullets” have only let up 20 touchdowns to opposing offenses, which is second fewest in the FBS.Last season, which was Ash’s first in Ohio’s capital city, the Buckeyes were 12th in the country in total defense en route to winning the first-ever College Football Playoff title. Ash is set to take over for Kyle Flood, who was let go at the end of this season after having just two winning seasons out of his four at Rutgers. In 2015, the Scarlet Knights finished a mere 4-8, including a 49-7 loss to OSU. Rutgers is set to be the third school in the Big Ten that Ash has coached at. Prior to his one season at the SEC’s Arkansas, Ash coached at the University of Wisconsin from 2010-2012. Ash graduated from Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, in 1996, where he played safety on the football team. Ash is currently in his 19th season as a football coach. An OSU spokesman was unable to comment on the matter. A spokesman for Rutgers did not immediately respond when asked for confirmation of Sports Illustrated’s report. Editor’s note: This post has been updated to reflect that a spokesman for OSU did respond to The Lantern’s inquiry after initial publication. read more

US Immigration Customs Enforcement axes Blackberry deal

first_imgThe US Customs agency has decided to deport its deal with Research in Motion back into Canada. The group will not renew its contract to provide its employees with Blackberries. They will be replaced with a massive order for thousands and thousands of iPhones.The US Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE), part of the Department of Homeland Security, also considered switching to Android, but found the concerns of an open-source operating system, with limited control over application security, troublesome. The contract with Apple was officially inked last month but was just recently made public.What’s interesting is that the story of a giant organization ditching Blackberry in support of a new smartphone platform isn’t truly worthy of making a big headline anymore. That may have been the case a couple years ago, but these days it seems about as surprising as a company upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 7 — it’s just the normal thing to do in this smartphone environment.When it comes to government agencies, though, any kind of switch like this is more significant. It took many of them a while to feel confident enough to expose their sensitive information to a Blackberry, and while that hasn’t changed product demands most certainly have. RIM simply has not been able to keep up with the new trends in the industry. In addition, because the market has radically shifted away from the BlackBerry, ICE says it is no longer meets the demands of its agents.RIM issued a statement saying that it is “committed to the mobility needs” of government agencies. It did not directly address the loss of the ICE contract.More at FBO.gov, via Computerworldlast_img read more

MovieBob Reviews Birth of a Nation

first_imgFairly or not, the hardest movies to review are often the ones where the story is bigger than the individual film itself, and not only did Birth of A Nation turn into exactly that, it’s pretty much been there since it first showed up.You may recall that last year there was a public outcry taking the Academy Awards to task for basically not nominating hardly any Black people? (#OscarSoWhite?) Well, the Sundance Film Festival was happening at the same time, so naturally everyone’s antennae were up for any Black films that felt like potential Oscar nominees; both to help make the point and because, let’s face it, there was now likely to be a premium on exactly that sort of thing.The movie everybody seemed to hit upon? Birth of Nation.It’s not exactly hard to see why: A biography of Slave Rebellion leader Nat Turner written, directed by, produced by, and starring Nate Parker as a passion project explicitly undertaken out of frustration at the lack of available good roles for Black actors so committed to the cause that it borrowed the title of the infamous pro-KKK silent epic to drive the point home. One understands, just from that brief production data, how it felt like the answer to a lot of prayers and wound up winning the festival’s Grand Jury and Audience Awards prize.…and then it came out that Parker had a rape charge back in college that got adjudicated under some extremely shady circumstances (not helping matters: an alleged cohort in the act has a story credit on the film) and… well, “shit,” would be putting it mildly. Suffice it to say the meta-narrative has gotten significantly more complicated now; since all along the “idea” of the film had been tied to the “idea” of the filmmaker who’d cast himself as the hero in multiple senses of the word.But, apart from all that, how is the actual film? Well… it’s okay. It’s fine.That’s probably the only thing harder than appraising a movie that’s been made into something bigger than itself (first a would-be vanguard of awards season representation, now a referendum on a decidedly less-than-contrite Nate Parker): having the actual film turn out to not inspire passions – positive or negative – equivalent to its presence. Oh, well.Taken entirely on its own merits, Birth of A Nation is a decently entertaining, occasionally-inspired work of historical melodramatic mythmaking. Perhaps amusingly, the filmmaking (and the filmmaker) that it most brings to mind is Mel Gibson; in as much as it’s a stylish, ultra-violent, not terribly “nuanced” work of history-as-larger-than-life-mythmaking positively dripping with heavy-handed Christian religiousity. Wherein moral authority is conferred by ham-fisted Biblical reference and a bounty of iconographic hero-shots depicting the writer/director/star posing like a cross between Jesus Christ and a mid-power-up Super Saiyan.Let’s be clear, though: If you’re shooting for “12 Years A Slave” meets “Braveheart” (“Slaveheart?”) a biopic of Nat Turner culminating in the violent rise and brutal crushing of his famous 1831 slave rebellion is probably the best possible place to start – even if the end result winds up more along the lines of The Patriot in terms of execution: This is a glossy, lurid, hyper-real work of folk-history mythologizing what in its best moments feels like a monument in motion and in it’s… well, “less than best” moments feels like the “Catcher Freeman” spoofs from The Boondocks.But there’s nothing wrong with that approach. The almost “pulpy” campfire-tales version of history is every bit as vital a component of how a society processes its own remembered self-image as the purely-factual academic record is. It could be easily argued that since “the record” tried for a long time to diminish or even erase events in Black History like this that likely only survived by being passed down as cultural folklore in the first place. Telling Nat Turner’s story in this way is in itself a wholly appropriate carrying on of tradition. Besides, why shouldn’t this particular figure get the same kind of pop-lionization that’s already afforded to Paul Revere, Davy Crockett, or Wyatt Earp?And when Birth of A Nation is surfing that wave – that’s when it works. The first two acts worth of playing out the inhuman indignities of slavery are horrific and nasty and luridly compelling in that “masochism-as-righteousness” vein that pairs so disturbingly well with all the super on-the-nose Biblical stuff. This is where Turner is a “prophecised savior” having visions of his spiritual inner-self battling sinister figures and being gazed upon beatifically by literal fucking angels (the Sundance cut reportedly featured spectral visions of Turner’s ancestors that some compared to Star Wars‘ Force Ghosts, seemingly excised from the theatrical release) and as buildup it makes all the brutal payback and revenge business in Act 3 play out as legitimately rousing, crowd-pleasing stuff – right up to a final shot that’s like something out of a Robert Rodriguez movie (one of the good ones, obviously.)Unfortunately, there’s a lot more would-be “respectable” movie wedged in between all this, which is a lot less compelling. Not “bad” necessarily, but certainly weightless and uninteresting. It’s all very well-intentioned and sincere, but the problem with half the movie being basically “Black 300” and the trying to do the other half as serious, contemplative drama is that the kind of one-dimensional human avatars that fit so well into heightened action-heavy folk-history lack the depth of character to be compelling at a regular human level; especially including the main character we spend about 99% of the movie with.Whatever else may be true about Nate Parker, it’s obvious he worked his ass off on this movie and he’s going for broke onscreen… but whether as a result of his own screenplay or his own acting chops, he ends up feeling like a limited instrument as a leading man. He’s very good whenever Turner is delivering soaring speeches, suffering nobly through torturous punishments, belting out sermons and meting out vigilante justice (actors either look “right” in a swordfighting stance or they don’t); but whenever the film slows down and tries to be “real” the character is as flatly and shallowly presented as all the rest.Still, as a cultural artifact, Birth of a Nation nonetheless feels important and necessary. The parts that work really work, and for the kind of movie that ultimately exists mainly to be fired up on Blu-ray in high school history classrooms once or twice every February, it get’s the job done… but it’s a frustratingly incomplete half-measure overall, however understandable the sense that it might’ve been something more must have felt back in Park City. That final shot, though… damn, that really is something.**1/2 (out of 4)last_img read more

Marrion eyesore will be focus of citys dangerous building fund this year

first_imgMARRION — Jim Faull and Ed McMillan’s street in the Marrion neighborhood is the kind where neighbors keep their yards mowed, folks hang signs proclaiming “Welcome!” and flag poles dot the landscape.Then there’s the house that they jokingly call “The Castle.” It’s been almost two years since they’ve seen the owner — she got into a car carrying suitcases, they say, and never came back.Now, raccoons and opossums are the only ones to call it home. The Castle’s not just overgrown — it’s a jungle in there. Blackberries climb halfway up the two-story home. There’s a hole in the roof. It wasn’t maintained before the owner, Deborah Hansen, disappeared. But it’s gotten worse.“This house has been in violation of city codes for years,” Faull said. “I just had not done anything with the city until she abandoned the place.”Faull started filing complaints in October 2009. Just last month, he got action.Vancouver building officials have posted signs on the house, on Northeast 16th Street, saying it’s uninhabitable. Hansen had until today to either respond or demolish the house and its excessive shrubbery.last_img read more

Mayor Seattle to reexamine its helipad policy

first_imgSEATTLE — The city of Seattle will re-examine its policy on helicopter landing pads in response to Tuesday’s fatal crash at a busy downtown intersection.Mayor Ed Murray said at a news conference hours after the wreck that Seattle’s regulations on helipads changed at least 20 years ago, when the city instituted more rules and limited where helicopters could take off and land.“We need to look at it,” he said of the regulations. “In consultation with the council, we will decide if we need to adjust our policies.”The crash Tuesday morning happened as a news helicopter took off from a helipad at the KOMO-TV station. The chopper went down on a street near the Space Needle and exploded into flames, hitting three vehicles and starting them on fire.Both people aboard the helicopter were killed, and a man in a car was badly hurt.

Jeep With high trade tensions looming and increasing talk of tariffs, more and more consumers are looking to buy American. Cars.com has released its annual American Made Index, showcasing companies that use the most American-sourced parts and labor in their vehicles. The results may surprise you.Cars.com analyzed more than 100 US-built vehicles for five key data points: manufacturing location, parts sourcing, US employment, engine sourcing and transmission sourcing. You might think something like the Ford F-150 would top the list, but it drops from its No. 5 spot for 2018 and out of the top 10 completely. Even the first-place holder, the Jeep Cherokee, is a pretty global product. It’s a Jeep, sure, but that brand is part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, an Italian-owned business.Cars.com surveyed 1,000 people and found that half are concerned about automotive import tariffs, with 41% saying they are unsure if tariffs would make them more likely to buy American. Either way, we’re big fans of all the vehicles on this list. These days, buying American doesn’t necessarily mean sticking with a US-based automaker. GMC CanyonIf you’re looking for a slightly fancier version of the Colorado that’s more focused on luxe than dirt, check out the GMC Canyon. The top Denali trim gets standard heated and ventilated front seats as well as a heated steering wheel. Maximum payload capability is 1,665 pounds while max towing is a fairly healthy 7,600 pounds.The Canyon is available with the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, 3.6-liter V6 or 2.8-liter diesel as the Chevrolet Colorado. It’s also built in Wentzville, Missouri. 2019 Mazda CX-9 review: Losing its edge? Honda RidgelineAgain keeping the status quo, the Honda Ridgeline maintains third place on the American Made Index. This crossover-that-looks-like-a-truck provides a better ride than a traditional pickup and gets an awesome lockable trunk right in the floor of the bed. And it doesn’t do the truck stuff too badly, either, as it’s able to carry 1,860 pounds of payload and tow 3,500 pounds.The Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 good for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque.

Manuel Carrillo III/Roadshow Modern vehicle wiring is complex. If even one thing goes wrong, a litany of problems could crop up, some of which might affect the vehicle’s overall safety. For Mazda, its latest recall focuses on connectors that might do weird things with the electrical system.Mazda announced this week that it will initiate a recall for 7,854 examples of the 2018 Mazda CX-9 crossover. The vehicles in question were built between Sept. 12, 2017 and Nov. 9, 2017.The problem comes from the wiring harness. A “weak retention force” in some wiring harness connector terminals might cause disruptions between different control modules in the car. Each presents its own problem, which complicates matters. In some cases, the turn signals may stop working, the engine might not restart or the passenger-side front airbag may not deploy in a crash. Each of these represents a unique safety hazard, but thankfully Mazda says it’s received no reports of accidents or injuries related to the defect.Mazda didn’t say how it plans to remedy the situation, whether it’s installing new harness connector terminals or replacing parts of the harness or something else. It also did not say when dealers and owners should expect to receive notifications. Nevertheless, once you receive a recall notification in the mail, it’s best to call your dealer to confirm everything and set up an appointment to have the issue remedied. 2019 GMC Sierra Denali review: So close to greatness 2019 Honda Ridgeline: The commuter’s pickup truck 2019 Honda Odyssey offers plenty of room and features for families 68 Photos 26 Photos 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport loves to hustlecenter_img 2019 Acura MDX adds new features and an A-Spec model Chevrolet CorvetteMoving up from the 10th-place slot last year is the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette.

first_img Share NASAHurricane Isabel taken from the International Space StationU.S. government forecasters expect a near-normal Atlantic hurricane season, after three relatively slow years. But they also say climate conditions that influence storm development are making it difficult to predict how many hurricanes and tropical storms will arise over the next six months.The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s season outlook calls for 10 to 16 named storms, with four to eight hurricanes and one to four “major” ones with winds reaching 111 mph and up.The Atlantic hurricane season officially starts June 1.The National Hurricane Center says an area of low pressure between Bermuda and the Bahamas has a high chance of brewing into something bigger Friday or Saturday. NOAA officials warned communities in Georgia and the Carolinas to monitor that disturbance.last_img read more

The Walking Deads Negan is a Playable Character in Tekken 7 Season

first_img During the EVO 2018 Tekken 7 grand finals, series director Katsushiro Harada and game designer Michael Murray made an unusual (i.e. completely insane) announcement. The Walking Dead‘s Negan is making his way to Tekken 7 along with five other fighters. Guest characters in fighting games isn’t new. Tekken 7 already has Street Fighter‘s Akuma, Fatal Fury‘s Geese Howard, and Final Fantasy XV’s Noctis. Negan is different considering how he is mostly known from The Walking Dead TV show. I think it’s safe to say no one could have predicted this particular crossover.Season 2 of Tekken 7 will have a total of six new characters. Along with Negan, the game is getting Anna Williams and Lei Wulong. Anna Williams made her debut in the first Tekken. She’s the sister of Nina Williams and the bodyguard of Kazuya Mishima. Lei first appeared in Tekken 2. In Tekken 7, he’ll have his signature dragon, snake, tiger, leopard, and crane styles. We don’t yet know the identities of the other three new characters.Right now, it’s unclear how Negan will function within Tekken 7. All that was shown is the picture we used for the featured image. We have no clue what his moveset will be or how he’ll control. Considering how he uses a barb wire covered bat, he should be a pretty devastating character. How he got into the Tekken tournament is what most interests me. Did he get there via some sort of dimensional portal? Does Tekken take place before the zombie outbreak in The Walking Dead? There are many questions and very few answers, but it’s fun to speculate.Expect Tekken 7 Season 2 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One “soon.” Hopefully, we’ll get some in-game footage of Negan in the coming weeks. New York Comic Con is around the corner and that would be an ideal time to release a Negan trailer. I don’t know about you but I’m extremely curious to see footage of Negan fighting characters like Heihachi Mishima and Jin Kazama. This should be interesting… and weird.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Business confidence still low in Costa Rica

first_imgRelated posts:Employment outlook among industrial sector shows no improvement Online shopping still low in Costa Rica, study finds Majority of companies in Costa Rica are family affairs Companies announce job openings in business, engineering and interpretation services Wariness about the country’s employment and economic situation caused a slight decline in confidence among business sector leaders during the first quarter of this year, according to a recent survey.The Costa Rican Chamber of Commerce (CCCR) released results Wednesday of its Business Confidence Index, which measures perceptions quarterly on four variables: economy, employment, sales and the business situation.The index this time recorded the minimum level considered “confident,” a decrease over the previous quarter.Concerns about the country’s employment and economy knocked down the confidence score.Businesses also expressed a cautious hiring outlook for the upcoming quarter, with 14 percent of employers surveyed saying they are considering reducing their staff in the next three months.Chamber President Yolanda Fernández Ochoa described the low confidence level in employment as extremely worrisome, mostly because “that variable has failed to surpass the minimum confidence level for 19 consecutive quarters.”The CCCR’s survey found that the number of companies planning to hire decreased from the previous quarter, from 21 to 19 percent. Most employers — 67 percent — said they plan to maintain their current staffing levels.Despite the lukewarm confidence looking outward, those surveyed expressed strong confidence in their own firms’ sales and performance.The Chamber took the opportunity to ask the government to refrain from promoting the approval of new taxes, saying it “would further affect the private sector’s confidence as well as hiring and investment expectations.”The chamber surveyed CEOs, CFOs and other managers at 700 companies from March 16-31. The study has a margin of error of 3 percent and a confidence level of 95 percent. Facebook Commentslast_img read more
