GENEVA — China and the United States have traded barbs again at the World Trade Organization, with the U.S. ambassador accusing China of theft of technology and an envoy from Beijing retorting that the U.S. was “finger-pointing.”The standoff comes as many countries lined up to criticize and question Trump administration policies in a WTO trade policy review of the United States, a regular process that WTO member states undergo.Wednesday marked the second and final closed-door session on the U.S. after a first one on Monday.U.S. Ambassador Dennis Shea sought to re-direct attention on China, saying it would subsidize its industries to squeeze foreign producers and dump products at cheap prices abroad, a transcript of his remarks showed.The Associated Press
by Keith Leslie, The Canadian Press Posted May 5, 2014 6:58 am MDT TORONTO – Campaign buses for the June 12 Ontario election rolled for the first time from Queen’s Park Monday, heading directly to the vote-rich suburban area surrounding Toronto, known as “the 905” because of its original area code.A sign of where the real battle will be fought, all three party leaders visited the heavily-populated and fast-growing region, which was a mix of Liberal and NDP seats provincially but where many ridings are held federally by Conservatives.Premier Kathleen Wynne’s campaign bus crawled north through rush hour traffic on Highway 404 to her old high school in Richmond Hill, where she talked to students about the importance of leadership and how to make a valid argument without attacking your opponent.“At this very school, I learned that if you want to really have everyone come on side, in the end it’s about being positive and not tearing each other down,” said Wynne.Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak ventured west to a recording studio in nearby Mississauga, where he talked about his five-point plan to create one million jobs over 10 years.“What the province needs right now is a premier who is focused like a laser on job creation and a long-term plan to turn our province around, not short-term popularity,” said Hudak. “My message here: there is hope. There’s going to be opportunity. There’s going to be a million new jobs.”NDP Leader Andrea Horwath campaigned in Brampton, including some old-fashioned “mainstreeting,” where she attacked her opponents and said the New Democrats would protect the average voter.“The Liberal government has been plagued with scandal and with waste and basically put a budget together to try to cover up, frankly, their dismal record,” said Horwath. “The Conservative party spent a lot of time making noise and causing trouble but not really focusing on the results of Ontarians.”The Conservatives decided to make public Monday their statement of defence in the $2-million libel suit filed against Hudak, the PC Party and energy critic Lisa MacLeod over allegations they made against Wynne regarding the deletion of emails on two gas plants cancelled by the Liberals.The Tories deny they did anything wrong when they suggested Wynne “oversaw and possibly ordered the criminal destruction of documents” related to the $1.1-billion cancellation of gas plants in Misssissauga and Oakville prior to the 2011 election.“I’m not going to back down,” vowed Hudak. “When people see a billion dollars (added to) their hydro bills, blown to save Liberal seats, there’s another reason why we need change.”In the statement of defence, the Tories say they had a “legal, social and/or moral duty” to make the comments that the Liberals claim were defamatory.Wynne said she wasn’t worried about the impact of the libel suit on the election campaign.“When there are false allegations made, it’s very important that I stand up to those and that I make it clear that that’s unacceptable,” she said.“So the legal process will carry on, but we’re now into a period where it’s important to talk about how we’re going to make Ontario a better place.”Horwath said the Liberals had a plan to privatize the Toronto Transit Commission, an idea Wynne accused the NDP of fabricating.“That’s a made-up comment because I have never, ever talked about privatizing the TTC,” said Wynne. “It’s completely made up.”Wynne spent much of the weekend in a verbal sparring match with Prime Minister Stephen Harper on her call to create a mandatory provincial pension plan, which he called a tax that voters would not like, an issue she revived again on Monday.The maximum pay out under the Canada Pension Plan is about $12,500 a year, which an Ontario Retirement Pension Plan would double to $25,000, said Wynne.“Stephen Harper when he retires is going to have about 10 times that amount in his pension,” she said. “So the reality is that if he doesn’t believe that the Canada Pension Plan should be enhanced, then he should move out of the way and let Ontario do its work.”Wynne also talked to students about how she and her friends fought with administrators at Richmond Hill High School in 1971 so girls would have the right to wear pants to school.“Then I became the first Ontario premier to wear a skirt to work.”Even though the slow, staggered, not-yet-official start to the campaign slipped into second gear Monday, the legal writ is dated for Wednesday, May 7.Wynne called the election on Friday after Horwath said the NDP had lost confidence in the minority Liberal government and would vote against the budget, which the Tories had already vowed to try to defeat.— With files from Maria Babbage and Diana Mehta.Follow @CPnewsboy on Twitter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Ontario party leaders start campaign in vote-rich Toronto-area suburbs Ontario party leader, from left, Liberal Kathleen Wynne, Conservative Tim Hudak and NDP Andrea Horwath, are shown in recent photos.

European automotive trade body ACEA has voiced its support for the European Commission’s proposals to expand infrastructure for alternative fuels that were announced last week as part of its ‘clean fuel strategy’.In particular, ACEA welcomes the Commission’s clear acknowledgement that there is not a single solution to the challenges of sustainable transport and that there must be a cluster of options available.With the right framework conditions, alternative fuels have the potential to play a key role in improving air quality and reducing CO2 emissions. The automotive industry has put forward a number of solutions through its investments in cleaner technologies. It will only be possible for these solutions to happen if there is full cooperation between utility providers, infrastructure companies, the energy sector, standardisation bodies and the automotive industry – with the full support of national governments and the European institutions. This proposal takes a step in the right direction in fostering such synergies.Standardising the connection between the electricity grid and electrically-chargeable vehicles is one of the basics to help e-mobility gain a viable market share. The industry therefore welcomes the Commission’s proposal to unify the plug system for recharging electric vehicles in Europe.“The existence of a single common plug across the different member states will help kick start a stronger market uptake of electric vehicles, and gives clear direction for the future,” stated ACEA Secretary General, Ivan Hodac. “This represents a real break-thorough in current discussions on the harmonisation of charging.”Gas powered vehicles (both LNG and CNG) also have a strong role to play in lowering CO2 emissions. The industry is pleased to note that, as well as proposing a broader network of filling stations, the Commission has underlined the necessity of ensuring the appropriate quality of gas for use in future vehicles.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)
Most reporters flocked to players like sophomore foward Jared Sullinger and senior guard William Buford during the men’s basketball team’s media day Thursday, Oct. 13. But some players were left alone, with only the occasional reporter stepping forward to ask questions. The man behind the Jordan Sibert name tag was one of the loners until finally, one reporter came up. “Hey Jordan,” the reporter said. “You mind if I ask you a few questions?” The man smiled. “Um, I’m actually J.D.,” he said. The name tag was wrong and the man who was sitting behind it was actually sophomore forward J.D. Weatherspoon, not sophomore guard Jordan Sibert. Weatherspoon hasn’t been the most recognizable face on the OSU basketball team. He joined the team last year, but was declared academically ineligible for Winter Quarter and missed much of the season. It was an experience Weatherspoon said was difficult to deal with, but his teammates never abandoned him. “They showed me so much love and they were always there to support me so that really helped,” he said. Weatherspoon was reinstated for Spring Quarter and was able to travel to OSU’s 62-60 loss to Kentucky in the Sweet 16 of the Men’s NCAA tournament. He’s been a full-time member of the team ever since. “It feels good being back with the team,” Weatherspoon said. “Just a minor setback for a major comeback. That’s my mindset.” This year, Weatherspoon hopes his “major comeback” will find him a spot in OSU’s rotation. Although he lost almost a year of game experience, Weatherspoon is confident he can fit in with the chemistry of the team. He’s been playing with some of his teammates since grade school. “(Sullinger and I have) been playing with each other since we were in fifth grade,” Weatherspoon said. “And then me, (sophomore guard Aaron Craft) and Jordan Sibert played AAU together with Sully, so, I mean, the chemistry was still there.” Former OSU guard David Lighty, who is now playing professional basketball in Italy, has been talking to Weatherspoon on a regular basis about the role he can play for OSU this season. Weatherspoon tries to model his game after Lighty and said he thinks he can help replace Lighty on the defensive end of the floor. “I’ve been talking to (Lighty) a lot,” Weatherspoon said. “He’s been a big brother to me as soon as I came here. We are both athletic. We play the same position, built similar. So it really helped out a lot.” Coach Thad Matta has noticed a change in Weatherspoon. He said Weatherspoon has come a long way in the past year and could definitely play a role for the team. “I think J.D. has learned maturity,” Matta said. “He’s got a very good work ethic about him. His maturity level has improved. He’s a very, very good athlete and from that perspective, he’s understanding what his role is going to be on this team. “What he needs to do is defend and rebound for us.” Who knows, maybe if Weatherspoon fills his role, they’ll give him his own name tag for media day in 2012.

Valette believes there may be another message hidden in the painting. That year, Picasso began an affair with Francoise Gilot, a student 40 years his junior.”I wonder if in this picture he is representing his new love in a secret way. It is a very sensual picture in a body of work that is quite masculine and sombre.”The seller of the painting wishes to remain anonymous. Valette said: “After 40 years or so people need to organise their affairs. But it is definitely a picture which has been very much loved.”The March 1 sale includes a £35 million flower painting by Gustav Klimt, a Modigliani, a Gauguin and three other Picassos. A Cecil Beaton photograph from the time was taken in Picasso’s studio and shows him standing beside several masterpieces, including the tomato picture. It has had just two owners.Shown in New York once the war was over, it was bought in 1947 by Stephen Carlton Clark, heir to the Singer sewing machine fortune and founder of the Baseball Hall of Fame.A private collector purchased it in 1976 following Clark’s death and is now selling it at Sotheby’s Impressionist and Modern Art Evening Sales in London on March 1 for £10-15 million. In the summer of 1944, Picasso was living with his lover, Marie-Therese, on the Boulevard Henri IV. Tomato plants were a common sight on windowsills and balconies in the city.Samuel Valette, senior specialist in Impressionist and Modern Art, said: “The light and colour in the picture represent the idea that there was light at the end of the tunnel. The Liberation of Paris was just around the corner.”Picasso could not exhibit any pictures during the war years because he was considered a degenerate artist by the Nazis. He was already at this time a superstar. He could have fled Paris but clearly for him it was an act of resistance to continue his life there.” Picasso’s painting of the tomato plant in bloom in the apartment he shared with his lover Marie-ThérèseCredit:Sotheby’s A Picasso painting of the tomato plant that grew on his windowsill during the Nazi occupation of Paris is to go under the hammer with an estimate of up to £15 million.The still life represents both the privations of war – Parisians were forced to grow their own produce because food was scarce – and, with its vibrant colour and ripe fruit, the resilience of the human spirit.The artist painted it in the summer of 1944, weeks before the city was liberated. Blacklisted by the Nazis, he was banned from exhibiting his wartime work in public.
NOT CONTENT WITH just working on experimental smartphones, Google has turned its attention towards developing tablets which can map its surroundings.The Wall Street Journal reports that Google’s new 7-inch tablet will be equipped with two back cameras, infrared depth sensors and advanced software that can capture 3D images of objects.The company is producing about 4,000 prototype tablets beginning next month. The tablets could be released ahead of its annual developer conference Google I/O, which will take place at the end of June.If this sounds somewhat familiar, that’s because it’s being developed as part of Project Tango, a section of Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects group working on experimental mobile devices.Back in February, it released a prototype smartphone which uses sensors to capture and map a user’s surroundings. It makes more than 250 million 3D measurements every second to build a 3D model of its surroundings.The smartphone could be used to help improve indoor navigation as well as gaming, allowing the visually-impaired make their way through unfamiliar indoor locations, and measuring objects and spaces.Like the Project Tango smartphone, Google will provide a number of developers with the new tablets to help develop new ways to use the technology.

But it must be a deal that protects the Union. That remains our abiding principle. 2/2 pic.twitter.com/TVQopbbHnG— Nigel Dodds (@NigelDoddsDUP) March 22, 2019 The Government has consistently settled for inferior compromises when they didn’t need to and when there was, and is, more negotiating with the EU to be done.Taoiseach Leo Varadkar had said earlier that the extension gave the UK some “breathing space” and opened up the possibility of indicative votes in the House of Commons.In a statement ahead of the European Council summit, Theresa May had laid the blame for the current political impasse with MPs, for not voting her deal through. In response to this, Dodds said today:“Lectures by the Prime Minister putting the blame on others cannot disguise the responsibility her government bears for the current debacle and the fact that her agreement has been twice overwhelmingly rejected in Parliament.The Prime Minister has now agreed with the EU to kick the can down the road for another two weeks and humiliatingly revoke her oft-stated pledge that the UK would leave the EU on 29 March.“Nothing has changed as far as the Withdrawal Agreement is concerned,” Dodds added.With reporting by Christina Finn at the Fine Gael National Conference in Wexford The DUP is not happy with Theresa May’s ‘humiliating’ Brexit delay It had been thought that the DUP were softening their stance towards the draft Brexit deal – until this statement today. As the clock ticks down, get all the best Brexit news and analysis in your inbox: Share168 Tweet Email Source: Nigel Dodds/Twitter Dodds said today, however that negotiations with the EU had been expected to go down to the wire and accused the government to be “far too willing to capitulate before securing the necessary changes which would get an agreement through the House of Commons”. 102 Comments Image: Dominic Lipinski https://jrnl.ie/4556139 Friday 22 Mar 2019, 7:14 PM Image: Dominic Lipinski Speaking at the Fine Gael National Conference, which is taking place in Wexford over the next two days, Tánaiste Simon Coveney said he had read the DUP statement today, though he warned not to pay too much heed to “emotive” language at this stage of play.DUP MP Jeffrey Donaldson will be addressing tomorrow’s Young Fine Gael session at the conference, titled: ‘North-South relations into the future’.Coveney said he hopes to get some”quiet time” with Donaldson tomorrow to discuss the Brexit state-of-play, though when asked what he could say to twist the DUP’s arm, Coveney said they do not take too kindly to that. He said they have tried to give “reassurances and clarifications” around the backstop, adding that this weekend, the British parliament, should be given the time and space it needs to get a majority over the line for another vote next week. Last weekend, the DUP held talks with Theresa May and her Cabinet, including Treasury Secretary Philip Hammond, to discuss what changes they wanted to make to in order that they would vote for it. Updated Mar 22nd 2019, 7:14 PM DUP DEPUTY LEADER Nigel Dodds has criticised the UK government, and called the delay to the date by which the UK leaves the European Union “a humiliation”.Last night, it was agreed that the date the UK would leave the EU would be delayed until the 22 May if British Prime Minister Theresa May’s deal was passed; if the deal is rejected, the date would be delayed by two weeks until 12 April.The DUP, whose 10 MPs are supporting May’s government, said today that she had missed an opportunity to put forward new proposals to change the Withdrawal Agreement. In a statement released this afternoon, Dodds said that the fact that Theresa May didn’t do so “is all the more disappointing and inexcusable given the clear divisions and arguments which became evident amongst EU member states”.He said that these divisions were made evident “when faced with outcomes they don’t like” – possibly referring to the rejection of the Withdrawal Agreement by the House of Commons.There had been rumours that the DUP had been softening its stance towards May’s twice-rejected Withdrawal Agreement and could be preparing to vote for it next week for the third Meaningful Vote.

“Fast and Furious” star Paul Walker’s father has filed a lawsuit against car company Porsche, alleging wrongful death of his son.In the court documents obtained, the actor’s father, who is the executor of Walker’s estate, alleges the Porsche Carrera GT lacked certain safety features that could have saved the lives of Walker and his friend, Roger Rodas, who was driving at the time of the accident, reported People magazine. Similar to the wrongful death lawsuit the actor’s daughter Meadow brought against the car company, Walker’s father states that the missing features include a stability control system, side-door reinforcements and a breakaway fuel line that could have stopped the car from catching on fire after it hit three trees.
VLJ manufacturer Eclipse Aviation continues to generate controversy. The Albuquerque, NM-based company confirmed Friday that is was unable to meet payroll obligations that came due on Thursday, Nov. 13, but would fully pay employees no later than the following Tues. In addition, the company denied reports of any layoffs and expected the full workforce on site the following week.Troubles began last summer as the company, arguably the primary driver of the Very Light Jet phenomenon in private aviation, dismissed 600 workers and ousted founder Vern Raburn in attempts to offset financial woes. Previously, the company enjoyed robust sales through 2007, with as many as 2,500 orders for the Eclipse 500 jet. Delivery backlogs and a controversial temporary FAA grounding and investigation of the jet owing to an emergency landing last summer hobbled operations. An influx of overseas investment, including an agreement with the Russian State Bank Vnesheconombank (VEB) Supervisory Board, chaired by Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, that called for the construction of a factory in Russia to assemble jet seemed to renew optimism for the company.
