Pacific Northwest timber industry: As prices slide, job fears grow

first_imgLumber prices have plummeted over the past 10 months, casting an uncertain pall on a sector that’s been a harbinger of economic downturn in the past. It’s worrying news for Cowlitz County, home to more forest product jobs than any other county in the state.After peaking at $582 per 1,000 board feet in May 2018, the price of Douglas fir is down to $390 this month, according to Nasdaq commodities data, and experts are unsure of what to expect next.“We’ll see some slowness this year, maybe continuing into 2020, but then longterm the potential is still there for growth,” forecasts Daniel Stuber, vice president of operations at Forest2Market, which reports on the industry. But that growth is far from certain.Prices reached record highs last year and the drop could be a rebound back to normal, Stuber said. But global tariffs are slowing lumber exports, and investments in the southern U.S. could make Pacific Northwest lumber less competitive. And there are troubling hints of slowing housing construction, with housing starts and building permits both lower this year than in 2018.If construction continues to stall, the 12,300 Cowlitz County residents whose jobs are tied to logging and wood products processing could be the first to feel an economic slowdown that has the potential to reach far beyond local sawmills.last_img read more

Guardiola hails Man Citys outstanding victory

first_imgManchester City boss Pep Guardiola was full of praise for his side following their 3-0 victory over Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions LeagueThe Citizens swept aside their Ukrainian opponents through goals from David Silva, Aymeric Laporte and Bernardo Silva at the Metalist Stadium.In what could have been a tricky game, City completely dominated proceedings and sit top of Group F with six points from three games.“First half we were outstanding,” said Guardiola on the club website. “We made a very good performance. We controlled it.“Second half, they push a lot with five, six players in front. It was complicated but every time we regained the ball and ran, we made a good chance on the counter-attack.“It’s an amazing result. We have recovered [from defeat to Lyon] with the result in Germany and here.“It’s in our hands. Win our games at home and we will be in the next stage.”City managed a total of 24 shots in the game and were unfortunate to not have scored more goals after Silva hit the woodwork twice and Raheem Sterling’s shot also hit the bar in injury time.“We are together three seasons, we know each other better,” Guardiola said.“We work a lot and know what we can do better.

Game of Thrones season 8 Only these three characters will survive the

first_imgGame of ThronesGame of Thrones Official YoutubeIn the final season of Game of Thrones, we are going to see the death of several of our beloved characters. It won’t come as a surprise if fan favorite characters like Daenerys Targaryen, Jaime Lannister, and others will die before the end. As per recent speculation, there are only three characters that will survive Game of Thrones’ ending and if these theories are true then there are going to be several heartbreaks in the upcoming season.In the very beginning, when George RR Martin planned the book series, there were five characters designed to survive all the books. In his letters that date back to 1993, Martin stated that Daenerys, Arya, Jon, Bran, and Tyrion will survive as his stories were about characters “growing from children to adults and changing themselves and the world in the process. In a sense, my trilogy is almost a generational saga, telling the life stories of these five characters.”Although the story has gone through several changes and thus the fate of Game of Thrones characters have changed drastically. That being said, the future of several of our beloved characters is in the grey area. Jon Snow reunion with Arya StarkGame of Thrones/FacebookHowever, as per a recent Reddit speculation, there are only a few characters who will survive the end. As per the speculations, only the true Starks will survive the final battle. That means Bran, Arya, and Sansa Stark will make it to the end. Since Jon Snow is not a Stark per se, he may die by the hands of Night King or Cersei Lannister. At the same time, George RR Martin has promised a bittersweet ending so anything can be possible.Meanwhile, Game of Thrones alum, Sean Bean has also talked about the survival of fittest in the show. In the fantasy drama, Sean played the role of Eddard ‘Ned’ Stark, Warden of the North, who was executed in the very first season. As per the acclaimed actor, only Arya Stark will be the only Stark kid who will survive the final battle.In an earlier interview, Sean Bean predicted that out of the remaining Stark kids, only Arya will last and maybe “she’ll be on the throne.” It makes sense that Arya survives Game of Thrones ending. She is a trained assassin as she has proved her skills in the previous seasons. She can also change face at any moment, which can help her killing people from her kill list.Game of Thrones is returning with its last and final season in April and we will soon get to know which characters are surviving the end or to break all the hearts, all men will die!last_img read more

RBI board meeting 4 out of 11 banks may witness ease in

first_imgIn picture: People walk past the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) head office in Mumbai.Reuters FileIn what could be a major relief for some of the banks put under the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) prompt corrective action (PCA) framework, the apex bank after its meeting on Friday has indicated that 4 banks could be allowed to continue lending activities. The central bank has taken an activist stance in its last meetings however, the newly appointed governor has adopted a more consultative approach while dealing with the issue.Notably, to ensure that banks don’t go bust, RBI has put in place some trigger points to assess, monitor, control and take corrective actions on banks which are weak and troubled. The process mechanism under which such actions are taken is known as Prompt Corrective Action or PCA.English daily, the Times of India reported that RBI governor, Shaktikant Das, said that the RBI will hold due deliberations with the government representatives on the issue of “economic capital framework” (ECF) and on governance.The government representatives on the RBI board include economic affairs secretary S C Garg and department of financial services secretary Rajiv Kumar. After the meeting, the statement issued by the RBI read that the board reviewed “the current economic situation, global and domestic challenges, matters relating to liquidity and credit delivery to the economy, and issues related to currency management and financial literacy”.The RBI board is scheduled to meet mid-January next year and till then the RBI board for financial supervision will review the progress by banks that have been placed under PCA. The RBI has asked the banks to provide an indication of the extent of provisions for the current and upcoming quarter of the financial year 2018-19, based on which the government will determine the capital requirement.Apart from discussing the PCA issue of the banks, the RBI also discussed the ECF for the central bank. The ECF is a formula to calculate the extent of capital reserves the RBI needs to maintain. It is to be noted that the committee is being appointed amid the centre’s claim that central bank is holding surplus reserves.last_img read more

Congress Nears Votes To End Border Security Brawl With Trump Avoid Government

first_img 00:00 /06:01 Listen Details of the agreement The product of nearly three weeks of talks, the agreement provides almost $1.4 billion for new barriers along the boundary. That’s less than the $1.6 billion for border security in a bipartisan Senate bill that Trump spurned months ago, and enough for building just 55 miles of barricades, not the 200-plus miles he’d sought.Notably, the word “wall” — which fueled many a chant at Trump campaign events and then his rallies as president — does not appear once in the 1,768 pages of legislation and explanatory materials. “Barriers” and “fencing” are the nouns of choice.The compromise would also squeeze funding for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, in an attempt to pressure the agency to gradually detain fewer immigrants. To the dismay of Democrats, it would still leave an agency many of them consider abusive holding thousands more immigrants than it did last year.The measure contains money for improved surveillance equipment, more customs agents and humanitarian aid for detained immigrants. The overall bill also provides $330 billion to finance dozens of federal programs for the rest of the year, one-fourth of federal agency budgets.Trump has talked for weeks about augmenting the agreement by taking executive action to divert money from other programs for wall construction, without congressional sign-off. He might declare a national emergency, which has drawn opposition from both parties, or invoke other authorities to tap funds targeted for military construction, disaster relief and counterdrug efforts.Those moves could prompt congressional resistance or lawsuits, but would help assuage supporters dismayed that the president is yielding.Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., who leads the hard-right House Freedom Caucus, told reporters “it would be political suicide” if Trump signs the agreement and did nothing else to find added money.The measure was expected to be carried by pragmatists from both parties. Many of Congress’ most liberal members were expected to oppose it, unwilling to yield an inch to Trump’s anti-immigrant policies, while staunch conservatives preferred a bill that would go further.“I made a promise to my community that I wouldn’t fund ICE,” said Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., a freshman who’s become a face of her party’s left wing and a leading proponent of eliminating the agency.Though Trump lost the highest-profile issue at stake, he all but declared victory Wednesday.At the White House, he contended that a wall “is being built as we speak.” Work on a small stretch of barriers is due to start this month in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley under legislation Congress approved last year.Swallowing the deal would mark a major concession by Trump, who has spent months calling the situation at the southern border a national security crisis. In private conversations, Trump has called the congressional bargainers poor negotiators, said a person familiar with the conversations who wasn’t authorized to speak publicly.Trump has repeatedly vowed Mexico would pay for the wall, a suggestion that country has spurned. His descriptions of the wall’s size have fluctuated, at times saying it would cover 1,000 of the 2,000-mile boundary. Previous administrations constructed over 650 miles of barriers.Facing opposition from Trump, Democrats lost their bid to include language giving federal contractors back pay for wages lost during the last shutdown. Government workers have been paid for time they were furloughed or worked without paychecks.Also omitted was an extension of the Violence Against Women Act. Democrats say this will give them a chance later this year to add protections for transgender people to that law.Associated Press reporters Catherine Lucey and Padmananda Rama contributed. Eric Gay/APIn this Aug. 11, 2017, photo, a U.S. Customs and Border Patrol vehicle passes along a section of border levee wall in Hidalgo, Texas.Congress rolled toward resolving its border security brawl with President Donald Trump in uncommonly bipartisan fashion Thursday, preparing to approve a compromise averting a new government shutdown this weekend but providing a mere sliver of the billions Trump has demanded for a wall with Mexico.With Trump’s halfhearted signature widely expected but not yet guaranteed, the Democratic-controlled House is poised to pass the sweeping measure Thursday evening, and the Republican-led Senate is expected to approve it as well. Bargainers formally completed the accord moments before midnight Wednesday night.Passage is virtually certain, with sizable numbers of both parties’ members set to vote “yes.” The only residue of suspense is whether Trump, despite clear signals he would go along, might reject the package and inject a fresh blast of chaos into the issue.“Let’s all pray that the president will have wisdom to sign the bill so the government doesn’t shut down,” said Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, chiming in after a guest chaplain opened Thursday’s session.Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who’s been close to Trump, seemed to have more faith than that. He told reporters Trump is “certainly inclined to sign it” and “march toward filling in gaps” by using executive action to divert other budget funds into wall-building.Trump wasn’t showing his hand, tweeting midday, “Reviewing the funding bill with my team at the @WhiteHouse!”Reviewing the funding bill with my team at the @WhiteHouse!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 14, 2019Avoiding another shutdownTrump’s assent would end a raucous legislative saga that commenced before Christmas and was ending, almost fittingly, on Valentine’s Day. The low point was the historically long 35-day partial federal shutdown, which Trump sparked and was in full force when Democrats took control of the House, compelling him to share power for the first time.Trump yielded on the shutdown Jan. 25 after public opinion turned against him and congressional Republicans. He’d won not a nickel of the $5.7 billion he’d demanded for his wall but had caused missed paychecks for legions of federal workers and contractors and lost government services for countless others. It was a political fiasco for Trump and an early triumph for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.The fight left both parties dead set against another shutdown. That sentiment weakened Trump’s hand and fueled the bipartisan deal, a pact that contrasts with the parties’ still-raging differences over health care, taxes and investigations of the president.In Houston, NASA employees were among those who felt the effects of the government shutdown. Justin Bautista works at the Johnson Space Center, and was initially furloughed during the partial shutdown, before being brought back to work at the agency without pay.“We’ve been trying to catch up on the missed time, while trying to prepare for a potential shutdown again at the end of this week,” he told Houston Matters. “And so it’s been pretty difficult trying to do both, trying to catch up on missed work, while getting ahead at the same time.”Bautista said he’s anxious about the possibility of another government shutdown if the bipartisan deal doesn’t pass. “Personally I don’t understand why things are being dragged out in Washington, D.C.,” he said. “If there’s already a deal reached I think folks should move along and pass it so that the uncertainty, and the sort of anxiety that all this uncertainty causes people like me, so that it can end.”Listen to the full Houston Matters interview with Justin Bautista, below:center_img Share To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Xlast_img read more

Bonds Hits Campaign Trail with Surprising Rhetoric

first_imgBy James Wright, Special to the AFRO, jwright@afro.com“The reason some Black men have problems getting a job is because of drugs being in their system when they’re getting tested,” D.C. Council member Anita Bonds said during her first stop on the re-election campaign trail.She shared these thoughts at the Marshall Heights Community Development Organization’s First Fridays meeting April 6. There she discussed what she’s done in office, her plans for the future, and the concerns of District residents. Bonds, who won the 2013 special election to permanently fill Council Chairman Phil Mendelson’s spot and the election to a full four-year term in 2014,  is the only African-American woman on the D.C. Council.Anita Bonds, a Democratic at-large member of the D.C. Council, said recently Black men have difficulty getting jobs because they have drugs in their systems. (Courtesy Photo)“As a member of the council, I am committed to increasing our quality of life and insuring all residents get the services from the city that they need, especially those who have the greatest needs. I am running for re-election to put people first.”Employment and housing concerns for African-American residents was a major topic of conversation. “We need long term solutions to affordable housing and to help D.C. residents to become financially independent and economically strong,” she said.The council member wants to expand the Home Purchase Assistance Program down payment limit from $80,000 to $120,000 and has legislation to help public housing residents increase their credit scores by counting rent payments in their credit histories. Bonds, who grew up in the Benning Ridge section of Ward 7, supports the development of The Strand Theater on Nannie Helen Burroughs Avenue and proposes that 26 of the 86 upscale residential units be available to people at market rate.While she is neutral on Amazon setting up its second headquarters in the District, she contends if D.C. is chosen for the new main office, its residents should benefit from the 50,000 jobs it will bring. “Amazon should have a package deal for the District too,” she said. “It will bring thousands of jobs and we need District residents for those jobs. Amazon should provide coaching for those jobs.”While the conversation about housing and employment offered certain solutions, some guests found it hard to believe Bonds comment on Black men having trouble finding employment because  of illegal substances in their bodies while being tested. That comment had her opponent, political newcomer Marcus Goodwin, who attended the meeting, shaking his head.“You heard what she just said,” Goodwin told the AFRO. “She said that Black males have dirty urine. The community deserves better than that. We need real solutions because a lot of people are in economic distress.”District residents noted that Bonds has skipped some candidate forums in the past. However, she said it was done for strategic reasons and is ready to engage residents in her quest for re-election. “I turned in my petitions on March 21 and so far, they haven’t been challenged,” Bonds told the AFRO. “That’s not the case for Mr. Goodwin.”Goodwin confirmed that Jeremiah Lowery, another candidate in the race, is challenging the signatures on his petition. Aaron Holmes is also running for this seat.Bonds said she will participate in the Ward 8 Democrats at-large forum on April 21 and continue her public engagement. “I have been doing this for years and I won’t stop now,” she said.last_img read more

Watch a Transformer Prime sort of play Skyrim

first_img2012 could be the year that tablet gaming explodes. Casual games are fine and dandy, but many of us long for some hardcore gaming on our iPads, Eee Pads, and Galaxy Tabs. We’ve already seen a drool-inducing prototype of Razer’s Project Fiona, but there are other solutions that don’t require Windows 8 and an Ivy Bridge processor. Streaming may be the method that first brings high-end gaming to tablets, and reps from Nvidia are showing us just that at CES 2012. There is, however, a great irony relating to Nvidia’s demonstration.The Nvidia booth has an attention-grabbing setup, that shows Skyrim being played on an Asus Transformer Prime. A high-end gaming PC is running the game, and the tablet sits in front of it, playing simultaneously. That’s enough to make nearly any geek stop for a look.This is a sneaky way to promote Nvidia, as the same result could be accomplished on nearly any Android device. Skyrim is being played (processed) on the PC; the Transformer Prime is merely receiving a compressed video stream of the game (this is also how OnLive works, only the game originates from servers instead of your own PC).So Nvidia is basically performing a parlor trick for CES guests that has nothing to do with its Tegra 3 chip. The company isn’t trying to hide its methods, but the demonstration could just as easily have shown a Splashtop-running HTC EVO playing Skyrim. Does the Prime playing the 2011 Game of the Year make for great theater? You bet. Does it showcase anything other than the benefits of Splashtop streaming? Nope.With that said, streaming has a chance to become huge in the smartphone and tablet realms. As mobile devices’ rapidly-advancing processing powers aren’t yet on par with consoles and gaming PCs, those with a rock-solid internet connection can still get the benefits of high-end gaming. Though OnLive’s iPad app is lost in the Bermuda Triangle, its Android app is already available to stream games like L.A. Noire from the company’s servers. From the looks of the Nvidia booth, Splashtop appears to be ready to promote its remote desktop app as a gaming solution as well.Check out the demonstration from CES 2012:via GigaOmlast_img read more

first_img Comments   Share   Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Losing that timeout cost the Cardinals, who fell to 3-3-1 on the season. On what turned out to be the final play of the first half, on which the ball was snapped with 17 seconds left, quarterback Carson Palmer was sacked by Frank Clark, who jarred the ball loose. Arizona guard Earl Watford came out of the pile with the ball, but since the Cardinals had no timeouts remaining, the clock expired with Arizona on the Seattle 32-yard line, presumably in field goal range.The kicking game problems were just getting started. In the fourth quarter, with the Cardinals leading 3-0, Ryan Quigley had a punt blocked by Seattle’s Tanner McEvoy. It was recovered by Cassius Marsh at the Arizona 31-yard line. Four plays later, Hauschka booted a 40-yard field goal that knotted the score with 4:05 left. Then, Catanzaro clanged a 24-yard field goal off the upright that would have ended the game. Thankfully, his counterpart would hook one wide-left from 28 yards moments later.The Cardinals walk away feeling the relief of a non-loss. But from this viewpoint, it was a loss. It’s rare to out-physical the Seattle Seahawks, yet the Cardinals did that for the majority of a 75-minute brawl. It’s rare to hold Seattle’s offense in check the way they did Sunday — 127 of the Seahawks’ 257 yards came in overtime. Hell, it’s rare to get that kind of defensive effort, ever. Like Buck, I don’t believe what I just saw, either.The Arizona Cardinals just played a football game where they held the ball for over 46 minutes, didn’t commit a turnover, converted nearly 50 percent of their third-down conversions and held the Seattle Seahawks to 11 first downs (five in regulation), yet didn’t win the game.The much-hyped Sunday Night Football matchup between the two NFC West rivals ended in a 6-6 tie, after both Chandler Catanzaro and Stephen Hauschka missed chip-shot field goals in overtime. It’s the first tie involving the Cardinals since 1986 when the St. Louis version of the team tied Philadelphia 10-10 in Week 14. “It’s been a long time since I’ve been in a tie,” Arizona head coach Bruce Arians said. “It was a very, very well-played, hard-fought ballgame. I thought our football team, other than the three plays in the kicking game, was outstanding.”Uh, about those three plays, Bruce.For the third time in 2016, the Cardinals were completely undone by their special team’s execution — or more to the point, lack thereof. Early in the second quarter, Catanzaro lined up for a 39-yard field goal. Seattle’s Bobby Wagner hurdled snapper Aaron Brewer and blocked the kick. The Cardinals challenged the call, but only ended up losing a timeout because it’s not a reviewable play. bruce arians and pete carroll’s reactions to the missed field goal pic.twitter.com/BEDcPQPyue— José (@whoisjoserivera) October 24, 2016GLENDALE, Ariz. — It’s World Series time, so it feels right to quote the great baseball announcer Jack Buck.“I don’t believe what I just saw.”Of course, Buck was reacting to Kirk Gibson’s improbable heroic ninth-inning home run for the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 1 of their 1988 World Series sweep of the Oakland A’s. Most importantly, the Cardinals squandered an opportunity to finally beat the Seahawks at University of Phoenix Stadium during the Arians regime and pick up ground on the division leader.“Two hundred games, including playoffs, I have never played in a game as crazy as this one before,” Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald said. “It was pretty crazy.”Agreed, Larry.
