first_imgDSTN Trenton, Nova Scotia’s landmark partnership with Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering, has reached a significant milestone with the completion of its first towers for a wind farm in Amherst. Premier Darrell Dexter and DSTN CEO Nam Ki Lee were in Amherst today, Jan. 24, for the delivery of the final tower to Sprott Power’s 31.5 megawatt wind farm. DSTN manufactured 15 towers for Suzlon Wind Energy Corporation, the wind turbine supplier to the Amherst Wind Farm Project. “This is an important step forward for DSTN as a world-class manufacturer of towers and blades, and I congratulate everyone involved in this project for their hard work and dedication,” said Premier Dexter. “Renewable energy is a sustainable industry with a bright future, and DSTN is helping to showcase Nova Scotia as a leader in this growing field.” Suzlon Wind Energy Corporation, the fifth largest wind turbine supplier in the world, was contracted by Sprott Power Corp. to supply the machines for the $61-million wind power project. Based on the average Nova Scotia home power consumption, the wind farm is capable of generating enough energy to power 10,000 homes. “In just a short period of time, we have shown that DSTN can deliver an exceptional product for the renewable energy industry,” said Mr. Lee. “We look forward to many more successful projects like this one across Nova Scotia and throughout North America.” “From the outset of our close working relationship with DSTN, Suzlon has been appreciative of the hard work, open dialogue and adaptable production methodology they brought to the table,” said John Hewitt, chief operating officer of Suzlon Wind Energy Corp. “We are very excited about the final DSTN wind turbine tower’s contribution to a clean energy future it offers all of Nova Scotia.” “The project is scheduled for completion by the end of March 2012,” said Jeff Jenner, president and CEO of Sprott Power Corp. “We look forward to increasing the region’s clean energy supply while contributing to the local economy.” The province secured a 49 per cent stake in the operation through investments made in 2010 to establish DSTN as a joint venture at the former TrentonWorks site. DSME is a diversified company and one of the world’s largest ship builders. The South Korean-based company was established in 1973 and today is a first-class builder of commercial and naval ships and offshore projects. In 2009, DSME acquired DeWind Inc., an American wind turbine engineering company, and announced plans to expand into the wind-power sector and build a production plant in North America. South Korea-based Daewoo is publicly listed on the Korean Stock Exchange.last_img read more

Staffan de Mistura, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Personal Representative in Southern Lebanon, said that Wednesday “was not a good day for the Blue Line,” as the withdrawal line is known. That day, 12 Israeli military overflights took place over the Blue Line, he said, adding that “some were deep inside Lebanese territory and sonic booms were heard over Beirut and Tripoli.” In the late afternoon on Wednesday, Hizbollah launched a military attack across the Blue Line on two Israeli Defence Forces fixed positions in the Shebaa Farms area, according to the envoy, who said the attack was heavy, involving mortar rounds, missiles and rockets. “The IDF subsequently shelled the area in Lebanon from where the attacks originated,” he added. “The fact that there were no victims and that attack and counter-attack near the Shebaa Farms area was limited to that area should help in containing this incident without any further escalation,” Mr. de Mistura said. “The United Nations is calling for the cessation of provocative actions and reminding all parties to exercise maximum restraint and respect for the Blue Line.” At the same time, the Special Representative warned that “this is clearly very bad timing for activities that increase tension in the region.” He stressed that respect for the Blue Line was critical to stability in the area and recalled that the Security Council has on numerous occasions urged all concerned to refrain from any violations. read more

Except, Top Gun: Maverick isn’t about Pete “Maverick” Mitchell (Cruise) climbing the ranks, rather, it’s about Mitchell not quitting his role as a captain at a time where fighter pilots could be replaced by technology, like drones, in coming years, Esquire reported.“I was always asked ‘When are you going to do another one?’ Well, you’ve been very patient with me. I felt like it was my responsibility to really deliver for you,” Cruise said at an SDCC panel on Thursday.Top Gun premiered more than 30 years ago, but Mitchell’s legacy lives on and as the trailer shows, he’s not ready to retire or stop flying anytime soon, Deadline noted.“Maverick you should be headed to extinction,” Ed Harris tells Cruise in the trailer.Cruise replies, “Maybe so, sir, but not today.”Top Gun: Maverick will premiere in theaters on June 26, 2020.More on 2019: Arnold Schwarzenegger on Why He’s ‘Addicted’ to ‘Terminator’ ‘It Chapter Two’ Final Trailer Teases Pennywise’s Return at SDCC 2019‘Game of Thrones’ Showrunners Are Not Coming to SDCC 2019 ‘Death Saves’ D&D Streetwear: Interview With Designer D…Wesley Snipes Says ‘It’s All Good’ With Marvel Studios’ ‘Blade’ Reboot Film last_img read more

first_imgGoogle Drive Search and Docs improvements by Martin Brinkmann on September 21, 2016 in Companies, Google – Last Update: January 04, 2018 – 2 commentsGoogle just launched an update for Google Drive that improves the service’s search capabilities with spelling correction and natural language processing.Google Drive’s search functionality lacked in several ways up until now, especially if you consider that Google is the dominant search company on the Internet.The new update improves search on Google Drive. While that won’t make it the best search experience you ever had — as you may still encounter the dreaded “none of your files or folders matched this search” message — it is a step in the right direction nevertheless.”Did you mean” spell checkingOne of the new features that the update introduces is spell checking. When you mistype a search query, you may get a “did you mean” suggestion underneath it if Google Drive could not match any files or folders to the original query.If you enter gams for instance, you may get the suggestion to run the search for games instead. This is linked directly so that you need to to click on the suggestion to display matching results.Natural Language ProcessingThe second big change to search is support for Natural Language Processing. Basically, what it allows you to do is type queries in natural language.A search for “show budget spreadsheets” for instance may result in no search hits by default. Google may display a “did you mean” link however that runs a search for budget that returns only spreadsheets in the results.Google states that Drive search understands complex queries such as “find my budget spreadsheet from last December” or “show me presentations from Anissa” as well, and that it will get better with each query.Google Docs improvementsGoogle Docs features a new columns option that switches the layout to one, two or three columns. To use it, open any document on Google Docs and select Format > Columns to switch to another column count automatically.Non-Google file formats that you open, convert or edit on Google Docs, Sheets or Slides are now saved automatically.You may open a copy of those files using the Revision History. This allows you to open the original file at any time.To do that, open the file on Google Docs, Sheets or Slides, and select File > Show Revision History from the menu. If you prefer keyboard shortcuts, you may use the shortcut Ctrl-Alt-Shift-H instead.Now You: Do you use a document hosting and editing service?

first_imgMozilla tests Premium VPN Service by Martin Brinkmann on October 21, 2018 in Firefox – 94 commentsMozilla will start the test of a commercial VPN offering tomorrow for a subset of users in the United States.The organization has not created its own VPN network but partnered up with the Swiss VPN provider ProtonVPN to use the established network of the provider.The test starts on October 22, 2018 in the United States for a sample of users of Firefox 62. Only some users who use Firefox 62 in the United States will be invited to participate in the test.There is no surefire way to be selected for the test as criteria for selection are quite diverse. Users who connect to an Open (unencrypted) wireless network, visit privacy focused websites, or streaming sites, may see the recommendation by Firefox.The recommendation highlights the basics behind a VPN, that Mozilla selected ProtonVPN as the partner for the test, and the price of the subscription.The price of the subscription matches the price that users pay for a monthly ProtonVPN subscription when they subscribe directly on the ProtonVPN website.It is unclear whether Firefox users will have the opportunity to pay yearly to get the $2 per month discount on the monthly price that ProtonVPN offers.Firefox users should get access to ProtonVPN Plus when they subscribe. Details are a bit scarce but it seems that the subscription gives Firefox users access to a full VPN that they run on the system and not just in the browser.ProtonVPN’s Plus plan can be run on five devices, includes all security features, and gives users access to all countries.Why ProtonVPN?Mozilla analyzed VPN services to find the best suitable partner for the VPN offer in Firefox. The organization selected ProtonVPN for a number of reasons that include (according to Mozilla)Strong security practices to make sure that the provider offers excellent protection against hacking attempts.That the VPN service does not store or log information about the browsing of its users.That the VPN provider follows the same mission as Mozilla: to improve data safety and security on the Web.Why a VPN?Mozilla has two main intentions when it comes to the new offering. First, to add a new revenue stream that is independent of the money that the organization gets from search engine companies like Google.The affiliate revenue earned from promoting the VPN in Firefox would reduce the stranglehold that search engine companies have on Mozilla. The bulk of Mozilla’s revenue comes from deals with search engine companies like Google or Yandex.The second reason is that VPNs improve user privacy and security on the Internet. VPNs like ProtonVPN include security features that block certain attacks outright and they hide the IP address of the user device.Closing WordsCritics might say that Mozilla adds advertising to the browser and that is certainly the case if you look at what is happening. Firefox may display recommendations to users to subscribe to a VPN when they perform certain actions in the browser. The choice of ProtonVPN may also be questioned by some.VPNs do improve privacy and security on the other hand and that is definitely a good thing.Firefox users can subscribe to the VPN to support Mozilla and get something back in return. Deal details have not been revealed; it is unclear if Mozilla will earn recurring revenue from subscriptions or if the organization gets a one-time payment only.I think that $10 is quite a high price for a VPN considering that you can get good ones for half or even less the price. It would have been great if Mozilla would have managed to broker a better deal for Firefox users.Also, I’d like to see contextual recommendations that provide users with clear information on why Mozilla thinks that they should use a VPN.It would have been ideal, in my opinion, if Mozilla would have created its own VPN network instead. This would cost a lot but it would mean that the bulk of revenue would flow into Mozilla’s pockets and would reassure users because of the first-party nature of the service.  (via Sören Hentzschel)Now You: What is your take on the move?SummaryArticle NameMozilla tests Premium VPN ServiceDescriptionMozilla will start the test of a commercial VPN offering tomorrow for a subset of users in the United States.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgRCB Bank intends to stay in Cyprus to continue developing its operations and adjusting to stricter anti-money laundering rules even as increasing geopolitical tensions, and subsequent sanctions imposed by the US and the EU targeting Russia, hurt the business environment, its top executive has said.Kirill Zimarin, the bank’s chief executive officer (CEO) and main shareholder, told the Cyprus Business Mail that while the bank is expanding its branch network on the island, it is also developing its online and digital service which will allow it to lower the bar of accepting new customers.With confidence in the island’s banking system being tested for the second time in six years as shown by the events unfolding around the Co-op, RCB, partly owned by Russia’s state-controlled VTB Bank, is increasingly eying the non-Russian segment of the Cypriot market.At the same time, the bank’s Russian business with both physical presence and economic substance on the island, home of a community of estimated 30,000 Russians, continues to grow steadily, he said.“International tensions, regional conflicts, protectionism and sanctions do not help doing business,” Zimarin said in an interview, his first to the Cypriot press. “But they don’t stop business. For example, we see a growing number of non-Russian customers.”As a result of tensions between Russia and the West – which dramatically soured more than four years ago when Russia invaded and annexed the Crimean Peninsula – the share of Russian clientele at RCB is decreasing, the banker said. Today, RCB’s Russian clientele accounts for 12 per cent of the bank’s business, both in terms of number of customers and volume.The bank was incorporated 23 years ago as Russian Commercial Bank and renamed RCB Bank in 2013, a year before it became one of the four Cypriot banks jointly supervised by the European Central Bank and the Central Bank of Cyprus. It is one of the youngest lenders on the island with a network of 10 branches and simultaneously one of the most profitable. Last year, it posted an after-tax profit of €97.2m compared to €81.7m in 2016. It maintained a minimal non-performing loans ratio of 0.2 per cent in December 2017, compared to the system’s 44 per cent.“We are continuing to develop business in Cyprus,” Zimarin said. “Do the sanctions and stricter AML (anti-money laundering) requirements create complications? Of course, they do. Yet, it is neither the first challenge that we are dealing with nor the last one.”The US, rocked by an investigation into the alleged Russian interference in its 2016 presidential election which touches the White House and members of President Donald Trump’s family and advisors, announced in April a new round of sanctions targeting Russian entities and individuals linked to Russian President Vladimir Putin and suspected of malign activities. A month later, and after a visit of a US Treasury official on the island, several supervisory bodies advised supervised financial and corporate services providers to consult US and UN sanctions lists.In 2014, VTB which owns over 46 per cent in RCB, was also placed under US sanctions.“We closed around 50 per cent of accounts belonging to PEPs (politically exposed persons),” said Zimarin. “We approve only 10 per cent of applications of new accounts by international clients. These rules are not new. We are working with these rules all the time.”The bank’s CEO said that with the stricter money laundering regulations, the focus in cross-border transactions is shifting from KYC (know your customer) to KYCC (know your customer’s customer), as it has to understand the reason behind a bank’s business model.“It’s not only about accepting a customer anymore; you have to accept a business model of such customer,” he said. “My strong understanding, when referring to the role of Cyprus as an intermediary in cross-border operations, is that the whole sector will be affected by thorough changes. Therefore, I said that we are moving to split corporate level from individual level.“The procedure of KYCC at a corporate level became more sophisticated and that brings the question of the cost,” Zimarin said. “Every bank has to make its own assessments, whether it wants to continue this way or another way or whether it is financially strong enough to combine this.”In April 2016, a report in The Guardian implicated RCB in a transfer of hundreds of millions of US dollars from Bank Rossiya to Sandalwood Continental Ltd, a British Virgin Islands-based firm. Based on the ‘Panama Papers’, the report said two persons with close ties to Russia’s President Putin, including his friend, the cellist Sergei Roldugin, were involved in the transfers, which also had the form of unsecured loans from RCB to Sandalwood. The Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca, according to The Guardian, set up Sandalwood and other offshore companies linked to Roldugin who, just like the Kremlin, denied any wrongdoing.“All the allegations which were formulated in articles regarding RCB were proven to be baseless and unfounded,” Zimarin said. “Roldugin never had any relations with our bank. He was not our customer.”In November 2017, the Central Bank of Cyprus fined RCB €800,000 citing its failure to comply with certain provisions of the anti-money laundering legislation, which prescribes due diligence and KYC procedures.Getting fined “is quite unpleasant”, Zimarin said. “However, it is a routine integral part of business, the regulator finds omissions occurred during work and penalises for them.“In general, the examination was related to the quality stand of clientele files,” he continued. “We did not receive any material remarks, however different minor mistakes were found, which occurred during composition of clientele files, and they were related to availability of required documentation.”According to the banker, the bank’s low non-performing loans ratio is attributable to RCB’s late entrance in the Cypriot market, which took place two decades after its incorporation.“We started operating in the local market in 2015,” he said. “Experience is not a number of years but a number of situations. That is why we know that a loan should have only one characteristic: repayability.“You lend money which comes from the bank’s depositors and you must receive it back,” he said. “You cannot make expansion in lending without thinking about the financial capacity of the borrower to repay it or the market. I think this is the main lesson that we and the whole banking sector has learned from the 2013 crisis onwards.”The message from the case of contractor Miltiades Neophytou who five years ago sued former President Demetris Christofias claiming €22m for unpaid construction work done at two residences owned by the latter, was also clear, Zimarin said.“If you sign a document headlined ‘loan agreement’, please repay,” the banker said. “We will take all necessary action to protect the interest of the bank and our depositors. Our recovery policy is strong.”Neophytou who served as chairman of Omonia FC in 2008 to 2012, withdrew his lawsuit in a surprising move in January after having previously alleged in court that he had signed a guarantee for a €2m loan extended by RCB to the Akel-affiliated club. Neophytou told the court that Christofias had mediated between him and RCB.“We settled that case, I think to the satisfaction of both sides,” Zimarin said when asked about the bank’s experience from that case. “The main lesson for everybody: If you are borrowing from RCB, this money belongs to our depositors. And we will do our best to secure their interest.”While the case demonstrated the bank’s links to the local political establishment, these go beyond the former president. The bank currently has four persons sitting in its board who previously held public offices, such as former attorney-general, Petros Clerides, former foreign minister, Erato Kazakou Markoullis, former permanent secretary at the justice and finance ministries, Antis Tryfonides, who all were appointed in 2015 after leaving office two years before, and former permanent secretary of the foreign ministry, Sotos Zackheos, who retired more than ten years ago.“We are very proud of the composition of the board of directors because it reflects the activity of the bank,” he said. “We have strong international presence, we need to have experts who understand this. As a result of the international presence, the high complexity of the legal documents, you need an expert in legal matters.”The composition of the board allows the bank to better understand the local market, he continued, and dismissed possible criticism that these political appointments constitute a possible conflict of interest.Being under the supervision of the ECB and the CBC any appointment at the board goes “through a very thorough assessment of these two institutions conducting the independent valuation that there is no any conflict of interest”, he said and added that future board appointments would require more experience in banking.When asked whether RCB had played any role in Cyprus receiving a €2.5bn loan from Russia six years ago at a below-market rate, he said that neither the lender nor VTB, its largest shareholder at the time, had played any role in the transaction.Zimarin, who in August last year increased his stake in the bank to 49.9 per cent, after acquiring the 19.85 per cent stake of Russia’s Bank Otkritie Financial Corporation for more than $100m, said that he partly financed the acquisition dividends he received from RCB in the past and credit he received from the bank.Crendaro, the company via which Zimarin owns his shares in RCB, “as any other shareholder of the bank, was receiving dividends”, he said. “Because of the sound and strong financial model of the bank, the shareholders can borrow money.“All the transactions were disclosed to the supervisor,” who in turn approved them, he said.The complete transcript of the interview is available here.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoEditorChoice.comIf You Have Any Of These 20 Toys Around, You Just Became RichEditorChoice.comUndoSmart Tips DailySeniors With No Life Insurance May Get A $250,000 Policy If They Do ThisSmart Tips DailyUndo Our View: Argaka mukhtar should not act as if he owns the beachUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoThree arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
