India Incs revenue growth hits sixquarter low in Q4

first_imgMumbai: Weakness in consumer sentiments and softening commodity prices have led India Inc to deliver a six-quarter low revenue growth of 10 percent in the fourth quarter of FY19, a report said Thursday. The revenue growth in consumer-linked sectors was only 3.8 percent in the fourth quarter of FY19 on a year-on-year basis, down from 27.9 percent in the third quarter of FY19.Commodity linked sectors revenue growth slowed to 12.4 percent in the January-March quarter of FY19 as against 51.4 percent in the third quarter of FY19. “The weakness in the consumer-linked sectors was visible across most consumer-oriented sectors such as passenger vehicles, two-wheelers, consumer durables and FMCG since second half of FY19. The decline in consumer sentiments was visible in both urban and rural segments,” Icra’s Vice President (corporate sector ratings), Shamsher Dewan, said.

However, several sectors such as airlines, cement, consumer food and consumer durables reported a sequential improvement in margins because of price hike initiated by companies in select sectors, lower cost of imports and softening in commodity prices, it said. The interest coverage ratio of the agency’s sample, adjusted for sectors with low debt levels (IT, FMCG and pharmaceuticals) witnessed a decline to 3.8x from 4.1x in the fourth quarter. Also Read – World suffering ‘synchronized slowdown’, says new IMF chiefThe rating agency expects the demand in the automobile sector to remain subdued owing to weak consumer sentiments following rising ownership cost, subdued rural demand and tight financing environment given the liquidity constraints in the financial markets. “The growth in the sector will start stabilising most likely from the second half of FY20 because of pre-buying related to the impending implementation of BS-VI norms from April next year, especially in the CV segment,” it said. Despite expectation of slowdown in automobile sales, the auto component industry is expected to grow between 10-11 percent in FY20 supported by increasing content per vehicle owing to transition to BS-VI and safety norms. In FY20, the cement demand growth is likely to be around 8 percent, while domestic steel demand growth will moderate to 7 percent.last_img read more

Canadian airlines aim to become biofuel superpower reduce carbon footprint

first_imgMONTREAL – The country’s top airlines say resource-rich Canada has the potential to become a biofuel superpower by transforming forest residue and agricultural crops into energy that can help the industry reduce greenhouse gas emissions.“Canada actually has an opportunity like no other country where it can displace large amounts of fuel and reduce large amounts of carbon,” Mena Salib, Air Canada’s manager of aircraft noise and emissions, said Tuesday after speaking to a global biotech conference.Salib said the industry wants to procure biofuels from local sources instead of transporting it far to meet demand.“The prize would be technology from Canada, the feedstock is from Canada and it is used by Canadians.”The country’s largest airline has been part of several flight tests to study biofuels and is ready to add the lower carbon energy blends when they are readily available.The aviation industry is looking for ways to cut its environmental footprint and achieve the global goal of becoming carbon neutral after 2020 and to halve net emissions by 2050 compared to 2005.While Air Canada (TSX:AC) and WestJet (TSX:WJA) don’t have a preference for using farm crops, forest residue or consumer waste, the airlines say the inputs must be sustainable and not displace food or land.Costs would also have to come down by using government incentives to encourage companies to boost supply.Geoffrey Tauvette, WestJet’s director of fuel and environment, says while the airline has invested heavily to improve the efficiency of its aircraft, biofuels are the only way to reduce emissions enough to meet global targets.“We think that Canada has the right ingredients to be that superpower. We just need to get the right sort of instruments in place to be able to make that happen,” he said from Calgary.While the airline hasn’t tested the use of biofuels, it has supported efforts, for example, to study turning forestry residue to energy.“If we can get the biofuels, it does help WestJet meet our goal of connecting Canadians to the rest of the world and we can do that without impacting the environment.”Fernando Preto, a research scientist with the Natural Resources Canada’s Canmet Energy group, said there are huge opportunities for Canada to supply biofuels from different sources.Studies conducted at the University of British Columbia and in La Tuque, Que., are looking at using forest residue to produce green fuel.Preto said millions of tonnes of branches, bark and scraps left behind during the cutting process could be a valuable resource.“I think that it could easily meet the jet fuel requirements in Canada for the Canadian industry,” he said.Biotechnology is a US$200 billion a year global industry, with about 20 per cent directed to fuels and much of the rest to consumer products, says Paul Winters, spokesman for the Biotechnology Innovation Organization which hosted the annual conference.Agrisoma Biosciences Inc., a Gatineau-based company, announced on Monday a long-term agreement with biorefiner UPM of Finland to expand the use of the carinata oilseed crop to produce renewable fuels in South America.The oilseed variety developed in Canada will be grown as a second crop in winter by farmers in Uruguay, followed by Brazil and Argentina. It can be used to produce non-edible oil suitable for low-carbon biofuels and a protein for animal feed.“We’re on a growth trajectory where we can see really being a major feedstock for things like the aviation industry,” said Agrisoma CEO Steve Fabijanski.Less than five per cent of flights are flown using biofuel blended with traditional jet fuel. Fabijanski said the use of biofuels will increase as costs decrease and new fuel distribution hubs beyond Los Angeles and Oslo are developed.Follow @RossMarowits on Twitter.last_img read more

UN expert applauds US decision guaranteeing net neutrality

“I hope the new rules may serve as a model for other governments seeking to protect or expand an open and secure Internet,” the Special Rapporteur on freedom of expression, David Kaye, explained in a news release. “It is especially important that the new rules prevent ISPs [internet service providers] from discriminating against some types of content in favour of others, either by slowing down delivery speeds or by creating a fast lane to ensure quicker delivery for only some content providers that have paid extra fees.” With the FCC decision, the United States (US) joins a small number of countries – Brazil, Chile, and the Netherlands – that have adopted net neutrality rules in an effort to support “a free and open” Internet and ensure continued access to any lawful content individuals choose, “without restriction or interference from ISPs. In addition, the decision classifies broadband Internet as a public utility, permitting its regulation by the FCC similar to the way the agency regulates telephone service and other utilities. Net neutrality’s importance has been long debated by law and technology experts. In instances where it is not applied, ISPs may, at their own initiative or through governmental pressure, charge fees when granting speedier traffic to websites or discriminate against particular content by slowing down or blocking access to certain websites. “It was by no means assured that the FCC would adopt these rules after years of consideration and public comment,” Mr. Kaye continued, as he urged all States to revisit their own Internet policies and consider similar action in guaranteeing net neutrality to their citizens. “Moving forward, I hope that implementation of the rules will be marked by the same openness that led to the rules themselves.”Independent experts or special rapporteurs are appointed by the Geneva-based Human Rights Council to examine and report back on a country situation or a specific human rights theme. The positions are honorary and the experts are not UN staff, nor are they paid for their work. read more

Sea boundaries treaty by Australia and TimorLeste example to follow – UN

The treaty establishing their maritime boundaries in the Timor Sea was signed at UN Headquarters in the presence of Mr. Guterres, putting an end to the decade-long dispute between the two sides and marking the first-ever successful recourse by States to conciliation proceedings under Annex V to the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).“This ceremony demonstrates the strength of international law and the effectiveness of resolving disputes through peaceful means,” the UN chief said.“A central element in the Charter of the United Nations, the peaceful settlement of disputes is also a cornerstone of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, to which both Australia and Timor-Leste are parties,” he added.The Secretary-General said the agreement is “a further contribution to establishing legal certainty in the world’s oceans, an essential condition for stable relations, peace and security, and the achievement of sustainable development,” and puts both countries in a better position to exercise their respective rights and obligations under the Convention.  It should also ensure that both States fully benefit from the sustainable exploitation of natural resources in the Timor Sea. read more

EtatsUnis une série de tornades fait 44 morts

first_imgEtats-Unis : une série de tornades fait 44 mortsCes derniers jours, le sud des Etats-Unis a été frappé par une vingtaine de violentes tornades provoquant d’importants dégâts matériels et humains. Un dernier bilan fait état de 44 morts.Le bilan des dommages causés par les violentes tornades qui ont touché le sud des Etats-Unis est lourd. L’AFP a établi dimanche un décompte auprès des autorités américaines faisant état d’un nombre provisoire de 44 morts. La Caroline du Nord, principalement touchée par la catastrophe, compte pour le moment 23 morts et 80 victimes hospitalisées. Patty McQuillan, porte-parole des services d’urgence de Caroline du Nord, déclare à l’AFP : “C’est la pire tempête depuis 1984 (…) Plus de 84.000 personnes sont sans électricité. Cela prendra certainement quelques jours avant qu’on puisse rétablir le courant”.À lire aussiCes effrayantes images démontrent l’impressionnant pouvoir de la natureLes dégâts matériels sont considérables. Des bâtiments ont été détruits, des arbres déracinés et des poteaux électriques ont été complètement arrachés. Certains véhicules ont également été emportés par la tempête. Mike Sprayberry, directeur adjoint des services d’urgence de Caroline du Nord témoigne sur ABC : “La situation est très mauvaise. Il y a un grand nombre de maisons et de commerces détruits, et beaucoup de victimes”. Malgré l’alerte lancée à l’ensemble des Etats du sud, les experts n’avaient pas prévu une catastrophe d’une telle intensité. “Nous avions été prévenus vendredi que les conditions météorologiques allaient se dégrader. Mais on ne sait jamais vraiment à quel point ce sera sérieux”, explique Mike Sprayberry.Depuis leur formation, jeudi dernier, en Oklahoma, au Texas et au Kansas, les violentes tornades ont progressé vers l’est avant d’arriver dimanche au niveau de la côte Atlantique où elles ont baissé d’intensité. Ces perturbations ont une durée de vie limitée allant de quelques minutes à une demi-heure. Toutefois leur puissance peut s’avérer très destructrice avec des vitesses de vents au delà de 200 kilomètres par heure. Face à la catastrophe, les autorités américaines préconisent de se réfugier dans les sous-sols, loin des fenêtres, et de quitter son véhicule.Voir l’une des tornades de ce week-end capturée en vidéo en cliquant ci-dessous : 18 avril 2011 à 10:11 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Japon la fusée H2A va lancer son premier satellite commercial et étranger

first_imgJapon : la fusée H-2A va lancer son premier satellite commercial et étrangerLe premier satellite commercial étranger du Japon sera lancé par la fusée H-2A dans la nuit de jeudi à vendredi (16H39 GMT). Il s’agit d’un satellite d’origine sud-coréenne.La fusée japonaise H-2A (exploitée par le groupe industriel privé Mitsubishi Heavy Industries)  lancera un satellite commercial d’origine sud-coréenne : le KOMPSAT-3 (Korea Multipurpose Satellite-3). Il s’agira-là du premier satellite étranger pris en charge par le Japon après avoir mis en orbite, depuis une dizaine d’années, différents engins locaux.À lire aussiBoisson, météorite et Facebook, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 5 septembreLe KOMPSAT-3 est capable de prendre des images de la Terre à très haute définition. Il viendra supplanter ses prédécesseurs (KOMPSAT-1 et 2), moins performants, et aura une utilité dans les domaines géographique, environnemental, agricole et océanographique. Dans le même temps, un autre satellite japonais (semi-public celui-là) sera mis en orbite ainsi que deux petits modèles expérimentaux nippons. Le Shizuku (GCOM-W1) aura quant à lui pour mission d’observer des changements environnementaux.Initialement développé et géré par l’Agence d’exploration spatiale japonaise (Jaxa), le lanceur japonais H-2A est, depuis avril 2007, conçu et exploité par le groupe industriel privé Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI), rapporte l’AFP. A ce jour, la fusée se prévaut d’un taux de réussite de 95% car si les 14 dernières missions ont été menées sans encombres par H-2A, la fusée atout de même connu quelques ratés. En 2003, un décollage a échoué conduisant à la destruction en plein vol de l’exemplaire tiré. Depuis 2005, en revanche il n’y eu aucun incident. Bien que la fusée n’est pour l’heure à son actif que des opérations menées pour le compte de l’Etat nippon ou de sociétés japonaises, cette nouvelle mission s’annonce donc plutôt bien.

Review Dragon Quest Builders 2 Is Two Great Tastes in One

first_imgStay on target Review: The 8BitDo SN30 Pro+ Is an Elite Nintendo Switch Controller’Metal Wolf Chaos XD’ Is the Hell That Is America The original Dragon Quest Builders is one of this generation’s surprise hits. It took the basic premise of Minecraft and combined it with one of the world’s biggest JRPG franchises. The result was a unique game that fans of Minecraft and Dragon Quest could enjoy. We now have a sequel in the form of Dragon Quest Builders 2.Like the previous installment, Dragon Quest Builders 2 has a story. You start as a builder on board a ship commanded by monsters called “The Children of Hargon.” Though their religious order despises builders, the monsters keep the young hero around because of their usefulness. A storm destroys the ship and the hero finds themselves in a place called the Isle of Awakening. The hero soon befriends a fellow castaway named Malroth, who has a nasty case of amnesia. Together, the two set off on a grand quest that has them visiting strange new lands and encountering quirky characters.The basic loop of Dragon Quest Builders 2 is visiting new islands, helping the locals with their problems, and using the knowledge gained to build up your kingdom. In some ways, each island serves as a tutorial for building different structures. For example, one of the first islands shows you how to create a farm. Because of that, most of the game feels like an extended tutorial. Those who have played the original may find this frustrating, but it’s a good solution for newcomers.There is very little in the world you can’t use for your building projects. Trees, grass, stones, water, mud; everything is at your disposal. Frequently, I had to contain the urge to harvest/collect everything in my path to keep the story moving. It is rather cool how the entire world is at your disposal, and it is something which serves players who wish to build their structures outside of the main story.The Isle of Awakening and all home bases have work stations for crafting. As you progress, you’ll learn new recipes that allow you to create different items. While you can technically build a structure out of simple blocks, it is more satisfying to build one made out of bricks, wood, marble, and more. Adding furniture, beds, and lights also give each home or castle a dash of life. Some may find the number of options overwhelming. But if you’re a person who truly enjoys creating then you’ll appreciate all the tools at your disposal.As you progress, you’ll gain blueprints that help you forge larger, more elaborate structures. It’s all relatively straightforward. You find a patch of land, plop a blueprint over it, and follow the instructions. While this process doesn’t allow room for creativity, it serves as a way to help less imaginative players feel a sense of accomplishment. As with building materials, having a repertoire of blueprints gives you flexibility and options when constructing your little towns.Dragon Quest Builders 2 is also an RPG. Your character gains levels and becomes stronger over time. Combat is one way to level up. Fighting monsters is as simple as bashing them with your forged weapons. Combat is the weakest aspect of the game since there is little to no strategy involved. Every monster has a tell which lets you know when it’ll strike. It’s all a matter of waiting for it to attack so you can go in and counter-attack. You gain experience and materials from monsters, which in turn helps with construction. I could have done without combat, but I also understand its inclusion. This is still a Dragon Quest title, after all. Facing challenging bosses also adds tension to the narrative. I’m not sure how the developers could have improved the real-time combat without it overshadowing crafting. Thankfully, most encounters are optional and brief.Each island not only gives you new building materials but extra allies. Like the mainline Dragon Quest games, characters add life to the story through their varying personalities. Mechanically, allies serve to help maintain your settlements. This is an aspect some players may not find appealing since it wrests control away from them. I didn’t mind having NPCs doing mundane things like plowing fields or cooking. Considering how complex settlements become, it’s good to have settlers who run things for you while you go off to handle more important tasks.The game’s online component is a neat idea that isn’t fully realized. After progressing past the first part of the story, you and up to three users can play together. This involves having players entering your game or you visiting theirs. All of you can build whatever you desire within the massive sandbox which is the Isle of Awakening. While playing with others is fun, it feels too disconnected from everything. You cannot bring others to help you through the main campaign. But if you like building with others and enjoy sharing your creations, multiplayer has its perks. Personally, the ability to take snapshots and share them online is the most appealing aspect.Dragon Quest Builders 2 won’t blow you away with its presentation. It has a simplistic art style at best. This isn’t an issue since the graphics do a serviceable job of bringing the whimsical world to life. The contrast between anime-inspired characters and the blocky world they inhabit certainly makes for interesting visuals. Graphically, it is a perfect blend of Minecraft and Dragon Quest. The music and sound effects come straight out of Dragon Quest. While not as great looking as Dragon Quest XI, Dragon Quest Builders 2 is pleasing to the eye.One of the perks of being a video game reviewer is trying titles outside my comfort zone. Dragon Quest Builders 2 is one such game. While I can’t say I am now a fan of sandbox building games, I have a better understanding of the genre’s appeal. There is a certain zen-like state one enters when creating that the title captures beautifully. You’re given the tools to create whatever you desire. Conversely, you’re given a guiding hand if you desire it. If you’re looking for a focused Minecraft experience, Dragon Quest Builders 2 is worth trying out.Get Dragon Quest Builders 2 at AmazonMore on Are the Game You Should Check Out in July 2019Play These Nintendo Switch Games Before ‘Pokemon Sword and Shield’Review: ‘Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night’ Is Bloody Awesomelast_img read more

Solskjaer confident De Gea Martial will sign new deals at

first_imgCaretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hopeful that both David de Gea and Anthony Martial will commit their futures to Manchester UnitedThe Red Devils received a welcome boost this week after 22-year-old midfield star Scott McTominay signed a new long-term contract at Old Trafford until June 2023.Now United will undoubtedly be hoping for similar success with De Gea and Martial shortly after activating clauses in their existing deals that will keep them at the club until the end of next season.De Gea has developed into one of the world’s greatest goalkeepers at United following his arrival from Atletico Madrid in 2011, but talks over a new deal haven’t progressed since the start of this season.Meanwhile, French striker Martial is in a similar situation to that of De Gea’s and has given very little away in the last few months over his contract situation.Juan Mata, Ander Herrera and Ashley Young also face uncertain futures at United with their contracts to expire this summer.“I think the club’s making progress,” said Solskjaer, according to FourFourTwo.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedSolskjaer praises Harry Maguire after Man United’s 1-0 win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer singled out Harry Maguire for praise after helping Manchester United keep a clean sheet in their 1-0 win over Leicester City.“But I leave that to the right people to do that.“I don’t really know how far we are [from agreements], I’m away from it, but hopefully we can have some good news in the coming weeks.”Another player who’s United future is in doubt is centre-back Eric Bailly, who has been restricted to just 10 appearances this season.The Ivory Coast international’s struggles for regular game time at Old Trafford has seen being linked with a shock move to Arsenal, who United will take on this Friday in a FA Cup fourth-round match.“I’m not surprised if they do [want him], to put it that way, but that’s just one of those things,” said Solskjaer of Arsenal’s alleged interest in Bailly.“There’s always speculation and it’s not a big surprise.”last_img read more

Dunleavy Picks Outgoing Alaska GOP Chair As Chief Of Staff

first_imgDunleavy said he and his wife plan to live in the governor’s mansion in Juneau. Dunleavy said additional announcements would be coming during the transition period. His voice was hoarse and he said he was fighting a cold. Babcock said by text message that he resigned as the GOP party chairman effective at 2 p.m. Thursday. That was around the time Dunleavy made his announcement. He expects to receive a draft budget from the Walker administration that he plans to modify. He has called for reduced spending and limiting the growth of government, though was criticized during the campaign for not offering many specifics on cuts. Dunleavy also said Brett Huber will be a senior policy adviser. Huber managed Dunleavy’s successful campaign. He told reporters a top priority during the transition will be hiring the best people possible for his administration. He said if any current commissioners of state departments want to stay on, they can interview with him. He supported a full payout of the check Alaskans receive from the state’s oil-wealth fund, the Alaska Permanent Fund, and paying Alaskans the amount they missed out on when annual checks were capped. Begich and Walker called it a ploy and irresponsible. But Dunleavy said the state can afford it and said it’s a way to restore trust with Alaskans. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Republican Gov.-elect Mike Dunleavy on Thursday named the outgoing chairman of Alaska’s Republican Party to a key post in his upcoming administration.center_img “Everybody wants something. We know that. But if we’re not able to sustain programs, I think it’s kind of a disappointment for the people of Alaska to rely on something that we can’t sustain,” he said. Dunleavy announced his selection of Tuckerman Babcock as chief of staff during a speech at an Alaska Miners Association convention in Anchorage. Babcock also will chair the transition. Dunleavy said Babcock has a lot of experience and he has faith in him. Dunleavy’s main rival in Tuesday’s election was Democrat Mark Begich, whom Dunleavy thanked for the “spirited campaign.” He said he wants to review the state’s Medicaid program to see if it’s sustainable. During the campaign, Dunleavy cast himself as tough on crime. Dunleavy next month will succeed Gov. Bill Walker. Walker, an independent, ended his re-election bid last month after Lt. Gov. Byron Mallott resigned over what Walker called an inappropriate overture to a woman.last_img read more
