This iPhone Dock Has No Wires

first_imgIf you’re the type who has wood paneling in their car, a bamboo iPhone case, and a solid-wood desk, the Koostik iPhone Dock will fit perfectly with your motif: it’s an iPhone dock that’s made entirely of wood, with no wires or speakers at all. The dock is designed to amplify the sound from the iPhone’s built-in speaker using the natural acoustics carved into the wood, and the folks behind it say it can make your iPhone’s speakerphone up to four times louder than it already is. The Koostik will set you back $90 retail (with free shipping,) mostly because each one is hand-carved by the master woodworker who invented it. You can order them in a variety of colors and wood varieties, including combinations of Maple, Walnut, and Cherry faces and bodies. It’s not built to be a replacement for an electronic dock or amplifier, and it won’t charge your iPhone because it doesn’t require electricity. Still, if you like a touch of elegance on your desk or just love all things wood, the Koostik is for you. AdChoices广告last_img read more

More than 80 cases now before High Court over swine flu vaccine

first_imgMore than 80 cases now before High Court over swine flu vaccine A solicitor handling many of the cases said the slow process is “very frustrating” for his clients. Short URL 27,814 Views Share320 Tweet Email3 Image: Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article No Comments THE SOLICITOR HANDLING many of the cases involving people who allegedly developed narcolepsy after receiving the swine flu vaccine has said more than 80 cases have now been lodged before the courts in relation to Pandemrix.In 2009, the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared a swine flu pandemic. The Irish government and the HSE purchased over eight million Pandemrix vaccines, which were made by Glaxosmithkline (GSK).Many people received the vaccine before its use was suspended in Ireland in 2011 after concerns were raised about negative side effects including a link with narcolepsy and other sleep disorders.The British Medical Journal published an investigation last September which noted that serious safety concerns were raised in 2009, nearly two years before the vaccine’s use was stopped in Ireland.Legal proceedings in two more cases were issued during the week. One case, involving a woman, is listed for trial on 8 October next. The other case involves an underage boy.The defendants in both cases are the Minister for Health, the HSE, GSK and the Health Products Regulatory Authority (HPRA).The proceedings were lodged by Michael Boylan Litigation. The Dublin-based law firm is handling the vast majority of the 80-plus cases. ‘Enormous task’ Solicitor Michael Boylan told the firm is “going through an enormous task” of finding and searching documents for relevant information.“We’re having to spend hundreds of thousands on IT experts and a team of document reviewers going through piles of documents,” he added, on the documents his team had sourced.&nbspIn February, the Sunday Business Post reported that the government had spent €2.1 million discovering documents for a test case brought by Aoife Bennett, a 28-year-old woman who allegedly developed narcolepsy from the Pandemrix vaccine. Bennett’s case is considered a lead case for the other related legal actions.‘A very stark disease’ Boylan said he believes the government has spent closer to €3 million at this stage.Narcolepsy is a very stark disease and many people have late diagnosis. It’s just terrible, it really is terrible,” he added. When asked about the situation in the Dáil by TD Clare Daly last Tuesday, Health Minister Simon Harris said the State Claims Agency is dealing with the cases in question, adding that it “would not be appropriate” for him to comment.“The discovery process is being actively case managed by a judge of the High Court. There have been several High Court motion hearings to date.“The matter has been listed again before the High Court in October 2019 where a test case will be raised by the plaintiff.“The Department of Health and the HSE continue to comply with all orders made by the courts and at no stage has the State failed to comply with a discovery order of the High Court,” Harris contacted the department, the State Claims Agency, the HSE and GSK for comment.The HSE said it was a matter for the State Claims Agency, which declined to comment.The department and GSK also both said they cannot comment on ongoing litigation. Comments are closed due to ongoing legal proceedings.  Sunday 7 Apr 2019, 7:05 AM By Órla Ryan Image: Apr 7th 2019, 12:06 AM last_img read more

Report Juventus target Chelseas Emerson

first_imgJuventus are reportedly considering making a move for Chelsea full-back Emerson PalmieriThe Blues had only signed Emerson from AS Roma last year in a £17.6m deal in a bid to bolster their defensive options.But the Italy international has made just 18 appearances at Chelsea since then and appears to have fallen completely out of favour under new coach Maurizio Sarri with not a single start in the Premier League this term.Romelu Lukaku, Inter MilanLukaku backed to beat Ronaldo in Serie A scoring charts Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Former Inter Milan star Andy van der Meyde is confident Romelu Lukaku will outscore Cristiano Ronaldo in this season’s Serie A.This comes in light of Marcos Alonso’s solid displays in the left-back position at Stamford Bridge, which saw Chelsea award him with a new five-year contract in October.Therefore, Emerson’s time in England is looking set to come to an end soon with Calcio Mercato claiming that Juventus would be interested in offering him a return to the Serie A.Bianconeri boss Massimiliano Allegri is understood to be keen to find a backup option for Alex Sandro as they enter the second half of this season hoping to end their 22-year wait for Champions League glory.last_img read more

Kelly undercuts Trumps wallbuilding claims

first_imgWhite House chief of staff John Kelly listens as US president Donald Trump hosts a `California Sanctuary State Roundtable` at the White House in Washington, US on 16 May. Photo: AFPOutgoing White House chief John Kelly said he had “nothing but compassion” for undocumented migrants crossing into the US and undercut the idea of a border wall in an interview published Sunday that jarred with president Donald Trump’s rhetoric on immigration.Speaking as a partial government shutdown entered a ninth day due to an impasse over Trump’s demands for funding of a wall at the US-Mexico border, Kelly told the Los Angeles Times: “To be honest, it’s not a wall.””The president still says ‘wall.’ Oftentimes frankly he’ll say ‘barrier’ or ‘fencing,’ now he’s tended toward steel slats,” Kelly said.”But we left a solid concrete wall early on in the administration, when we asked people what they needed and where they needed it,” he added.A former Marine general who led the military command responsible for Latin America, Kelly was Trump’s Homeland Security secretary before becoming White House chief of staff in July last year.His relationship with the president reportedly deteriorated however and he is to be replaced at the end of the year by Mick Mulvaney, the current budget director.”Illegal immigrants, overwhelmingly, are not bad people,” Kelly told the LA Times, adding that many had been manipulated by traffickers.”I have nothing but compassion for them, the young kids.”The remarks were in sharp contrast to the rhetoric of the president who regularly appeals to his overwhelmingly white political base by taking a hard line on immigration.Pathetic immigration policiesTrump has spoken of an “invasion” of migrants and complained of “many gang members and some very bad people” among a thousands-strong caravan of immigrants that travelled to the US in October.Building a “wall” along the 2,000-mile (3,200-kilometre) US-Mexico frontier was a central plank of his 2016 election campaign, and he has tweeted about it almost 100 times this year alone.Migrants from Central America say they want to reach the US to escape poverty and gang violence.Trump has threatened to end aid to Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, despite a State Department announcement on 18 December that the US was ready to offer $4.5 billion in investment in Central America and southern Mexico, and that the administration was requesting an additional $180 million in assistance to the region.On Saturday Trump blamed opposition Democrats “and their pathetic immigration policies” for the deaths of two Guatemalan children who crossed the border illegally with relatives who were taken into custody by US Border Patrol.In further comments departing with the stance taken by his boss, Kelly said the way to halt illegal immigration was to “stop US demand for drugs, and expand economic opportunity” in Central America.Kevin McAleenan, the commissioner of US Customs and Border Protection, said on ABC’s “This Week” investment in Central America was one element of a “multi-faceted problem” that also requires funding border security.Wasting taxpayer dollarsHe called for a “sober-minded non-partisan look at our immigration laws” as part of the solution to an upsurge in family and child arrivals.”We’ve asked for about 1,000 miles of wall… And what we’re talking about is not just a dumb barrier,” McAleenan said.”We’re talking about censors, cameras, lighting, access roads for our agents, a system that helps us secure that area of the border.”The opposition Democrats are refusing to provide $5 billion for Trump’s border wall project and the president insists he will not fully fund the government unless he gets the money.As long as the debate holds up approval of a wider spending bill, about 800,000 federal employees are not getting salaries and non-essential parts of the government are unable to function.Kellyanne Conway, a close Trump advisor, said on “Fox News Sunday” that whether the border barrier was a “wall” or not was “a silly semantic argument,” adding that the president had already compromised, since he had originally asked for $25 billion.Democratic Congressman Hakeem Jeffries agreed on ABC’s “This Week” that immigration reform and enhanced border security were needed.”But we are not willing to pay $2.5 billion or $5 billion and wasting taxpayer dollars on a ransom note because Donald Trump decided that he was going to shut down the government and hold the American people hostage,” he added.last_img

Cascade of Scandals at Gun Trace Task Force Trial

first_imgBy Stephen Janis, Special to the AFRORecently Mayor Catherine Pugh cited a lack of creativity within the Baltimore Police Department as one of her reasons for firing Commissioner Kevin Davis and replacing him with Darryl De Sousa.But, if there is one theme that has emerged from the trial of two of the officers of the now notorious Gun Trace Task Force (GTTF), underway at the federal courthouse this week, is when it comes to stealing overtime, robbing residents and dealing drugs the officers of this once elite specialized unit exhibited boundless creativity.The Baltimore Police Department’s Gun Trace Task Force (GTTF). (Courtesy Photos)During hours of testimony from DEA agents, victims and the officers themselves, a picture is emerging of a unit of cops constantly applying new and ingenious ways to rip off taxpayers, shakedown innocent residents and enrich themselves without showing up to work.For example during testimony Jan. 29, GTTF member Jemell Rayam related how the unit, unsatisfied with robbing drug dealers during warrant searches turned to seeking out victims outside the scope of the police work.  To make it happen, Rayam and another member of the unit Momodu Gondo obtained a vehicle tracker from an unnamed Sergeant in the police department and affixed it to the car of a man who a friend told them had thousands of dollars of cash stashed in his apartment.When the tracking device pegged the victim far from home, the officers broke into the residence.The only problem, the victim’s girlfriend was lying in bed inside the apartment. Startled, officer Rayam said he pointed his gun, and gave an account of what he said to the terrified woman before stealing $12,000 in cash from a dresser drawer.“I could have told her I would kill her,” he said, adding that he also stole a Rolex watch and cocaine.The anecdote was one of many stories told on the stand by former GTTF members who have since pled guilty during the trial of their counterparts Daniel Hersl and Marcus Taylor.Both are charged with robbing residents, filing false reports, and extortion. The pair is also facing multiple counts of fraudulently obtaining overtime, which according to the testimony, was not just unfathomably easy, but accomplished with at the least tacit approval of command.Both Evodio Hendrix and Rayam told jurors that overtime was there for taking, even for days they didn’t work at all.  In fact, Hendrix testified that Hersl didn’t show up to work for nearly a month.“I was told Hersl took off for a whole month when he was working on his house,” Rayam told the jurors.“Was he getting paid?” Prosecutors asked.“I believe so, yes” Rayam replied.In fact, both he and Hendrix and another member of the unit who has pled guilty, Maurice Ward, said that if an officer confiscated a gun, the entire unit would receive up to eight hours of overtime.  And if one of their colleagues had to work late processing a suspect, the entire unit would go home but, would not clock out.“We came into work whenever we wanted to,” Rayam told the jury.  “We got away with a lot of things.”One question that has continued to loomed over the scandal-plagued department, that was in part answered during the proceedings, was just how this group officers broke the law regularly without intervention from their superiors.According to testimony from Hendrix, the unit’s supervisor Sergeant Wayne Jenkins met with then police Commissioner Kevin Davis in 2016 and recounted his conversation to him later. During the talk, Davis asked Jenkins how he was keeping the Task Force motivated.“He said he gave them overtime and slash days and the commissioner said, ‘good job.” Hendrix recalled.   “He told the commissioner he was giving overtime for guns.”But if there was any concern about the actions of the Task Force or attempts to rein them in, it wasn’t evident in their behavior.In fact, DEA agent Todd Edwards testified about a strange encounter he had with Jenkins in September 2016.During a stakeout of a suspected cocaine dealer in Upper Marlboro, Md., a D.C. suburb, someone knocked on the window of his vehicle.  When he opened the door, he was greeted by Jenkins, who told him he was pursuing the same target.“I said, why are you here? And he said, why are you here?” Edwards testified, noting that a Baltimore police officer does not have jurisdiction in Prince George’s county.When asked by prosecutors if it was unusual to encounter a city cop so far outside the city, he was unequivocal.“I found it unusual,” he said.   Asked if he’d ever experienced anything like it in his 25 years of drug enforcement, he equally emphatic tell the jury he had not.last_img read more

First Black Catholic Priest Moved Closer to Sainthood

first_imgBy AFRO Staff(Updated 06/16/2019) The Rev. Augustus Tolton, the first openly Black Catholic priest in the United States, is one step closer to becoming a Roman Catholic saint.On June 11, Pope Francis declared Tolton to be “venerable,” the second of a usually four-step path toward canonization. The Pope’s designation means Tolton lived a life of “heroic virtue,” according to the Archdiocese of Illinois, where he founded the first African-American parish in Chicago.This 1886 photo courtesy of the Brenner Library, Quincy University in Quincy, Ill., shows Quincy’s Father Augustine Tolton, following his ordination on Holy Saturday of that year. (Photo courtesy of Brenner Library, Quincy University via AP)“We welcome this news from the Holy Father on the advancement of Fr. Tolton’s cause for sainthood,” said Cardinal Blase J. Cupich, archbishop of Chicago, in a statement. “Fr. Tolton’s holiness comes from his patient suffering, his brave spirit and his pastoral heart for all who came to him. His struggles to become a priest and his remarkable service to God’s People are admirable examples.” Tolton was born the son of slaves in Missouri in 1854. His father, Peter Tolton joined the Union Army in 1861. A few months later, his mother, Martha Jane, escaped with he and his siblings to Quincy, Ill. From early on, obtaining an education was a uphill battle for Tolton, simply because of his race. When no American seminary would accept him, he eventually enrolled in a seminary in Rome, where he was ordained in 1886. Tolton went on to the first African American Catholic parish in Chicago. After strenuous work among the city’s poor, Tolton died of heatstroke and uremia in 1897, at the age of 43.“Fr. Tolton’s story represents the long and rich history of African American Catholics, who have lived through troubling chapters and setbacks in our American history,” said Most Rev. Joseph N. Perry, who has been championing Tolton’s canonization. “Lessons from his early life as a slave and the prejudice he endured in becoming a priest still apply today with our current problems of racial and social injustices and inequities that divide neighborhoods, churches and communities by race, class and ethnicity. His work isn’t done. We will continue to honor his life and legacy of goodness, inclusivity, empathy and resolve in how we treat one another.” Two other Black American Catholics ― Henriette Delille and Pierre Toussaint ― have been declared Venerable, but none have been declared saints.If a miracle is attributed to Tolton, he will be declared “Blessed,” the next requirement for sainthood. Lastly,  a second miracle may be required.last_img read more

Technology to remove iron arsenic and fluoride in water to help tide

first_imgKolkata: Central Mechanical Engineering Research Institute (CMERI) under Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) has invented new technologies of purifying water contaminated with iron, arsenic and fluoride.On Tuesday two private companies were handed over the technological details using which they will manufacture water purifiers for commercial and community purpose. Professor Harish Hirani, Director of CMERI on Tuesday stated that keeping the water crisis in mind, their institute had taken up the project long time ago. After long research they have found the way to serve quality of drinking water. He said: “In India ground water is a major source of drinking and agricultural use. At a number of locations in rural as well as some urban India contaminants like arsenic, iron and fluoride in groundwater exceed the permissible limit causing health hazards. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataAlso, there is continuous depletion of ground water.” According to Hirani apart from purifying iron, arsenic and fluoride contaminated waters, CMERI has also invented technologies to recycle and purify sewerage water with intention to reuse for daily purpose other than drinking. But that technology is yet to get commercialised. Also installing the purifier is very easy with hand pumps in rural belts as it needs to be attached only. Hirani expressed his hope that in future these technologies will be popular and effective for water conservation across the country.last_img read more

Now that we’ve benchmarked the 12.9-inch iPad Pro for our review over at Laptop Mag, it looks like that claim could very well be legit.The 7-nanometer A12X Bionic chip processor inside the iPad Pro packs four performance cores and four high-efficiency cores, and there’s a new GPU that promises twice the graphics performance as the A10X processor inside the last iPad Pro.And the benchmark results are quite impressive.MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro: Which 13-inch MacBook Is Right For You?Apple’s entry-level MacBook Air and Pro look pretty similar, but our testing proved they differ in crucial ways.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Which Cheap Tablet Is Best?

And once again the iPad Pro blew away the field.Apple’s tablet took just 7 minutes and 47 seconds to complete our task. It took the 13-inch MacBook Pro 25 minutes and 53 seconds, and the Dell XPS 13 (31:03) and Surface Pro 6 (31:54) both took over half an hour.Photo Processing (Adobe Lightroom)We then turned to Adobe Lightroom to see how long it would take to export 50 RAW images to the JPEG format, and the iPad Pro once again outperformed the competition–though not by as large a margin.The iPad Pro took 59 seconds to complete the batch export, while the Surface Pro 6 (1:35) and 13-inch MacBook Pro (1:36) were about 30 seconds behind.

In fact, if I were Apple, I would be finding ways to bring this chip over to the Mac. But keep in mind that performance is just one consideration when deciding between the iPad Pro and a more traditional PC.If you prefer a desktop interface, the Surface Pro 6 is the better choice, and it also offers a better keyboard with touchpad and built-in kickstand. But if you can see yourself working within iOS, the iPad Pro should make quick work of whatever you need to do.Credit: Laptop MagBest Tablet – Top Tablets on the MarketNew MacBook Air Benchmarks Leaked: Here’s How It Stacks UpNew iPad Pro 12.9-inch Review: Power Beyond Belief Responsible for the editorial vision for Laptop Mag and Tom’s Guide, Mark Spoonauer has been Editor in Chief of LAPTOP since 2003 and has covered technology for nearly 15 years.

Costa Rica sues Nicaragua over military camp near border

first_img Facebook Comments Costa Rica filed a new complaint against Nicaragua before International Court of Justice (ICJ) at The Hague on Monday, denouncing the presence of a military camp from the Nicaraguan army inside its territory, near the common border area.The Foreign Ministry stated in a news release that the camp is located on a beach at Portillos Island, a border territory that belongs to Costa Rica in an International Court of Justicie ruling issued on Dec. 16, 2015.Foreign Minister Manuel González noted that ICJ Justices, in their 2015 ruling, said that due to significant changes along the coastline over several decades, it is difficult to make a precise border delimitation at that location.“Nicaragua, taking advantage of this situation, set a military camp on the Costa Rican side of Portillos Island that now forces Costa Rica to, once again, go before the ICJ,” he said.Costa Rica also asked the court to set the limits over a sand bank that separates Los Portillos lagoon from the Costa Rican territory.“We are asking for a precise border delimitation in order to avoid further excuses from Nicaragua to send military personnel to that area,” González said.Compensation paymentThe Foreign Ministry also asked ICJ Justices to set a final figure and a deadline for receiving the compensation that the court ordered Nicaragua to pay for the material and environmental damages caused inside Costa Rican territory a few years ago.Justices ordered the payment after confirming the invasion by Nicaraguan personnel of a border territory known as Isla Calero. Nicaraguan workers dredged a series of artificial canals inside Costa Rica between 2010 and 2013.Costa Rica last year requested that Nicaragua respond to this ruling by paying damages in the amount of $6.7 million in compensation, but the Nicaraguan government did not respond to the request by the end of the one-year deadline issued by the ICJ.After the deadline expired in December, the administration of President Luis Guillermo Solís said the government would give Nicaragua an additional month to respond, but Managua never did so.“Nicaragua did not respond, so we interpret that silence as a negative response, despite recent statements by the president of that country saying he intended to pay,” González said on Monday.The minister added that in order to speed up a ruling on this case and avoid delays in another case related to maritime delimitation between both countries started in 2014, the government asked the ICJ to join both cases and issue a single ruling.Costa Rica’s Ambassador to the Netherlands, Sergio Ugalde, who presented the complaint before the ICJ, noted that Costa Rica does not expect any significant delays from the court, and that rulings for both cases, “in case Justices agree to join them, likely would be issued this year.”Below is a timeline of events in the Costa Rica–Nicaragua border dispute: Related posts:Costa Rica submits arguments against Nicaragua in $6.7 million environmental damage complaint Costa Rica has unfair advantage in maritime delimitation claim, says Nicaragua Costa Rica extends deadline to settle payment with Nicaragua for environmental damage Costa Rica, Nicaragua to face off again at The Hague in new border disputelast_img read more

Home Inventory Down for Fifth Straight Month Market Even More Competitive

first_img July 30, 2015 617 Views Low inventory in the housing market has increased competition among home shoppers. According to the first quarter Zillow Real Estate Market Report, there were fewer homes for sale in June than one year ago and much of the decline came from the lowest-valued homes sought by first-time homebuyers.”Historically low mortgage rates continue to keep overall ownership affordability very good by historical standards, making it a great time to buy a home, especially with rent becoming increasingly unaffordable,” said Zillow Chief Economist Stan Humphries. “Finding a house is the last hurdle for many buyers who have saved a down payment and gotten pre-approved for a mortgage. But low inventory levels like those we’re seeing across the country can bring the home-buying process to a screeching halt. In many markets, there just isn’t a lot to choose from in terms of homes on the market.”According to the report, in the lowest-priced third of homes for sale, the inventory of homes on the market fell year-over-year in 28 of the nation’s 35 largest metro areas. Meanwhile, among the highest-priced homes, inventory decreased year-over-year in only ten of the nation’s largest metro areas.Zillow found that the total number of homes listed for sale on their website in June was down 6.5 percent year-over-year but was up 2.1 percent on a monthly basis.Inventory increased the most annually in Austin (up 30.3 percent), Atlanta (22.4 percent) and Washington, DC (18.9 percent). Charlotte (-39.7 percent), San Antonio (-31.3 percent), and San Diego (-30.0 percent) experienced biggest decreases in supply of for-sale homes.Overall, home values in the United States rose 3.3 percent from June 2014, and 0.3 percent from May to $180,100, according to a Zillow home value index. Rents have also continued to rise in the second quarter, up 4.3 percent from this time last year to $1,369, according to a Zillow rent index.”As home values continue to rise, buyers are faced with more challenges in a tighter market, especially in hot markets like Denver, which saw the highest home value appreciation from last year, surpassing even San Jose and San Francisco,” the report said.Click here to view Zillow’s Real Estate Market Reports.

IMF banking sector still facing one of highest NPL ratios in Europe

first_imgCyprus ‘ banking sector still faces one of the highest non-performing loan (NPL) ratios in Europe, while both private and public sectors have a large debt overhang, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) said in a rereport ononday.On November 28, the IMF Executive Board concluded its latest  consultation with Cyprus saying the near-term outlook for the economy was favourable, with growth expected to remain at around 4.2 per cent in 2018–19, supported by the services sector and largely foreign-financed investments.Over the medium term, economic growth is projected to slow to its long-run potential rate of around 2.5 per cent, as the transitory effects of the investment boom gradually dissipate. Fiscal performance is expected to improve with a primary surplus of around 5 per cent in 2018–19. Public debt is thus expected to be on a firm declining path, falling below 70 per cent of GDP by 2023, despite a sharp increase earlier this year following the resolution of the Cyprus Cooperative Bank.However, the economic outlook could weaken if implementation of NPL resolution is delayed, while public debt sustainability could be undermined by realisation of contingent liabilities or erosion of fiscal discipline,” the IMF report said.Directors observed that private and public debt remain large while NPL ratios were still among the highest in Europe. They encouraged the authorities to make further efforts to address these legacy problems and strengthen economic growth over the medium term.They called for steadfast implementation of the amended legislative framework on foreclosure, insolvency, sale of loans, and securitization, supplemented by a strengthening of the court system and removal of uncertainties related to title deeds. Directors also stressed the need to enhance the governance and supervisory framework for the recently-established asset management company. They recommended that to limit moral hazard, the proposed Estia scheme aimed at encouraging distressed borrowers to begin servicing their loans be better targeted and based on appropriate assessment of borrowers’ capacity to repay.Similar sentiments were expressed by the European Central Bank and the EU Commission on Friday in Cyprus’ Autumn report.The IMF report, highlighted the need for banks to continue efforts to strengthen their balance sheets. They urged banks to diversify income sources and consolidate operations to improve cost-income ratios and better position themselves against increased competition. Directors recommended strengthening regulatory guidance on loan restructuring and exercising vigilance over bank lending policies, the adequacy of provisioning, and debt-to-asset swap policies.It also cautioned against relying on transitory revenues from cyclical gains and one-off measures to finance permanent spending initiatives, and took positive note of the authorities’ commitment to cap expenditure increases, including the public wage bill, in line with the medium-term GDP growth rate, in order to create room for growth-enhancing spending.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.

which offers useful advice resources and insights to entrepreneurs and business owners The article below was originally published at Inccom The workplace has begun to replace the coffee shop for many American employees People employed in an office where coffee is served often skip Dunkin’ or Starbucks to save a few bucks by indulging in the free brew While starting the day off with a cup of java is a perfectly acceptable practice many employees return to the coffee pot time and time again throughout the day filling their body with loads of caffeine and potentially high levels of sugar if they choose to sweeten their beverage A hot drink or a beverage break while working is loved by many–and throwing out the coffee pot to improve employees’ health without replacing it with something equally as satisfactory isn’t advised For seven healthy alternatives to serving coffee in the workplace that your employees–and their bodies–will love try the following: 1 Kombucha Tea You’ve probably heard about this one but don’t know too much about it Kombucha is a type of yeast When you ferment it with tea sugar and other flavors or ingredients you make Kombucha tea While the benefits of Kombucha are debated many claim that it is useful for treating memory loss regulating bowel movements preventing cancer helping with high blood pressure and more 2 Yerba Mate Yerba Mate is the good alternative to coffee for those who can’t start the day without a cup o’ caffeine Providing the same buzz that coffee gives Yerba Mate is preferred by many as it’s packed with nutrients too Mate is made from the naturally caffeinated leaves of the celebrated South American rainforest holly tree It is widely known for not having the heavy “crash” that coffee can bring Another benefit of Yerba Mate is that it can be prepared and consumed in a variety of ways–hot cold with honey in a tea infuser in a French press or even in a traditional coffee machine 3 Probiotic Drinks There is a wide variety of probiotic drinks available these days These sparkling beverages provide different strains of active cultures of live probiotics If you’re like most people you probably aren’t sure why that matters Researchers say that some digestive orders happen when the balance of friendly bacteria in the intestines becomes disturbed This can happen after taking antibiotics Probiotics are said to help counteract this They regulate digestive health boost the immune system maintaining gut health and more 4 Tea Most offices will have this available for you already The teapot offers a very healthyalternative to the office coffee machine Teas come in a myriad of forms and blends and can be drunk hot or cold There is a massive selection of green black herbal and specialty teas out there many of which are caffeine-free and naturally sweet enough to pass on the sugar Many teas are a well-known source of antioxidants B vitamins and minerals 5 Coconut Water Tea and coconut water are two of the healthier drinks on the market growing in popularity the fastest Coconut water is a clear milky liquid that comes from green young coconuts Coconut water is naturally sweet contains bioactive enzymes and is chock full ofrehydrating electrolytes which makes it a good replacement for sugary sports drinks 6 Sparkling Water While it’s not the most exciting beverage in the world sparkling water can be a refreshing alternative to both coffee and water Especially when flavored with natural sugar-free fruit extracts sparkling water is delicious and hydrating There is a lot of competition in the marketplace from Perrier to San Pellegrino 7 Hot Apple Cider Hot apple cider’s sweet tanginess offers its own unique pick-me-up in lieu of caffeine and its soothing warmth is just as satisfying as that of coffee on a cold fall or winter morning In addition to its natural sweetness because apples are the key ingredient apple cider offershealth benefits not available in coffee Contact us at
