Food prices fell by 0.9 per cent, driven by declines in ambient and fresh food products, while non-food goods fell by 2.5 per cent compared with a 2.8 per cent decline in March. “Despite low margins in a fiercely competitive market, retailers have kept prices down, and in doing so made sure the public are able to see their wages go that little bit further during a difficult period,” the BRC’s Helen Dickinson said. whatsapp Supermarket price wars keep shop prices in freefall in April center_img Express KCS Show Comments ▼ Tuesday 5 May 2015 9:06 pm Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe Wrap’Drake & Josh’ Star Drake Bell Arrested in Ohio on Attempted ChildThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

However, it’s a fall from the first estimate of a 0.2 per cent rise. The Commerce Department said the revision was down to a rise in personal consumption, while exports decreased less than previously estimated.However, the US’ official statistics office said negative contributions from exports, nonresidential fixed investment and state and local government spending both meant the figure remained low. The news suggests the Fed could choose to hike interest rates sooner, rather than later. After a meeting earlier this month, analyst consensus was that a rate rise is likely to come in September.”The US economy is in pretty rude health,” said Dennis de Jong, managing director at UFX. “The GDP reading shows the Fed is on the right path. Janet Yellen would have preferred to be focusing on the proposed interest rate rise, but is likely to be more concerned about what’s happening across the Atlantic than her own back yard at present.” Share Show Comments ▼ Fall in first quarter US GDP was less than we thought whatsapp Tags: NULL whatsapp Emma Haslett last_img read more

Warm welcome as speed ramps installed in The Swan

first_img Laois Councillor ‘amazed’ at Electric Picnic decision to apply for later date for 2021 festival Home News Council Warm welcome as speed ramps installed in The Swan NewsCouncil WhatsApp Pinterest Warm welcome as speed ramps installed in The Swan By Steven Miller – 5th November 2020 Local residents in The Swan and anyone who has ever travelled through the Laois village will know that it’s a prime location for speeding – and so it comes as no surprise that the decision by Laois County Council to install speed ramps there has been warmly welcomed.Laois County Councillor Padraig Fleming has been highlighting the issue for some time now but he received assurance at the recent Graiguecullen-Portarlington Municipal District meeting that two traffic calming ramps on the R430 road in the village.The ramps have since been installed with advance signage and road markings to been completed shortly.“The works have now been procured and the ramps, including upgrades to the adjacent street lights and road signage, will be installed in the coming weeks,” was the response from Philip McVeigh, the council’s senior executive engineer.Cllr Fleming had also called for signs indicating ‘ramps ahead’ “so as to help with the safety of everyone in the village in light of the continuous fast speeds of motorists/vehicles’. Facebook Twitter TAGSGraiguecullen Portarlington Municipal DistrictLaois County CouncilPadraig FlemingThe Swan RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Cllr Fleming, who lives in the village and has been an elected representative for Fianna Fáil since 2009, thanked the council for proceeding with the work.Cllr Fleming raised his concerns on multiple occasions previously during council meetings.“Some people travelling through the village seem to think it’s a runway,” he said at the May monthly meeting earlier this year.“They are doing absolutely ridiculous speed and even though there are radar speed signs there, it still doesn’t stop them. It’s just getting worse and worse.”“It is a straight road the whole way through the village, with a 50kph speed limit,” he added in September.“There is a 30kph speed limit outside the school but they fly through at 70 or 80kph. It can be frightening walking on the side of the road when they are flying past at that speed.“They have no regard for speed limits at all. Cars are just zooming through and children are left standing at the pedestrian crossing at the school. The cars pass by as if they don’t exist.”There have also been two new speed ramps installed in Timahoe, one on the way into the village from the Portlaoise side and another at the church.SEE ALSO – Former Laois captain Attride hopes to represent county again when Australian adventure endscenter_img Electric Picnic WhatsApp Pinterest Bizarre situation as Ben Brennan breaks up Fianna Fáil-Fine Gael arrangement to take Graiguecullen-Portarlington vice-chair role Twitter News Electric Picnic Previous articleLaois man set to feature on popular RTE TV show this eveningNext articleLaois Gardai seize €60,000 in cannabis and make one arrest following search Steven Millerhttp://www.laoistoday.ieSteven Miller is owner and managing editor of LaoisToday.ie.

North Korean intel agencies escalate extortion of remittance brokers

first_img News North Korean intel agencies escalate extortion of remittance brokers By Daily NK – 2018.04.26 2:41pm NewsEconomy North Korea Market Price Update: June 8, 2021 (Rice and USD Exchange Rate Only) SHARE An increasing number of remittance brokers are being apprehended and held in custody by North Korea’s intelligence agencies, report inside sources. The brokers, who are active in the border region near China, facilitate cash transfers for a fee. “Recently, the Ministry of State Security has been arresting more people involved in the remittance business around the border region and throughout the whole country,” an inside source from Ryanggang Province told Daily NK on April 20 during a telephone call, adding that the apprehensions are not aimed at cracking down on the behavior, but rather designed to extract bribes.Ordinarily, the Ministry of State Security (MSS) or the Ministry of People’s Security (MPS) use the fact that remittances are considered illegal to demand bribes from the brokers in exchange for looking the other way. They thus become an intermediary step in the remittance process. However, in order to grab a larger piece of the pie, they have instead started apprehending the remittance brokers so they can shake them down.   “Some people have been wondering, ‘Why is the MSS doing this when the brokers already cooperate with them?’ The reason is because when the MSS believes that the size of the fee (bribe) they get is too small, they can instead arrest the broker, take them in for questioning, and use the process to demand a larger cut in exchange for granting the broker’s release,” the source explained. Another reason explaining the rise in this behavior, according to the source, is the fact that the MSS needed money for the Day of the Sun (Kim Il Sung’s birthday) on April 15. It’s the country’s most important holiday, and money is urgently needed, so it’s also likely that the brokers were targeted to help cover those expenses.”A source in North Hamgyong Province added that the brokers who have been caught by the MSS and MPS pay different bribe amounts depending on where they have been apprehended. Those in the interior regions pay less than those in the border region. “The MSS and MPS have a larger appetite (for bribes) in the border region, so if you get caught once, you need to pay 10,000 RMB (about 1,500 USD). Brokers caught wiring money from the border region into the interior region can get away with paying about half this amount and still satisfy the official who apprehended them,” he said. Daily NK published news in February this year suggesting that MSS agents are threatening remittance brokers in the borderlands near China and demanding a larger cut.  “The result is that ordinary residents, lacking the power to resist, end up paying more in bribes yet again. This kind of irrationalism is going to continue in our country until the day comes that we stop worrying about food and live well,” the North Hamgyong Province-based source said.

If a defector living in South Korea sends 1 million KRW (approximately 930 USD) to their family in North Korea, on average an estimated 100,000 KRW ends up going to a South Korean broker, 150,000 KRW goes to a Chinese broker, 200,000 KRW goes to a North Korean broker, and 200,000 goes to the Ministry of State Security or Ministry of People’s Safety. This means that the defector’s family ultimately receives about 350,000 KRW from the transaction.  Proposal to shift “general markets” to “specialized markets” finds little support among N.

Queensland Treaty Advancement Committee members announced

first_imgQueensland Treaty Advancement Committee members announced JOINT STATEMENTQueensland’s journey towards a new future between First Nation’s people and all Queenslanders has taken the next step with two Co-Chairs and members of Queensland’s first Treaty Advancement Committee formalised.Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the Treaty Advancement Committee would continue the momentum of the Path to Treaty process, develop options and provide independent advice on how to progress treaty-making for all Queenslanders.“Queensland has achieved many great things but as part of that, we need to acknowledge the past,” the Premier said.“Our story began more than 60,000 years ago with our First Nations Peoples. Path to Treaty is about acknowledging the past and plotting a way forward for a new future between First Nation’s peoples and all Queenslanders.”Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships, the Honourable Craig Crawford MP said it is only by walking a path built on a foundation of mutual respect, agreement, and truthfulness that we will be in a position to truly reframe our relationship.“We can now begin to understand each other and heal the wounds accrued over 250 years of recent history, and that we can start to build new stories together,” Mr Crawford said.“It is great to see these esteemed and expert leaders appointed to the Treaty Advancement Committee, as they build on the work done over the last 18 months of the Eminent Panel and Treaty Working Group.“The committee will engage all Queenslanders in shaping the next steps on the Path to Treaty including a process to support truth-telling – an important community priority that arose from the 2019 consultations.The Treaty Advancement Committee members are:Dr Jackie Huggins AM (co-chair): Bidjara/Birri Gubba Juru woman, former Co-Chair of the National Congress of Australia’s First Peoples, and former Co-Chair of the Path to Treaty Eminent Panel and Treaty Working GroupMr Mick Gooda (co-chair) Ghungalu man, former Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner of the Australian Human Rights Commission, and former Co-Chair of the Treaty Working GroupEmeritus Professor Michael Lavarch AO, former Attorney General for Australia and former Co-Chair of the Path to Treaty Eminent PanelMs Josephine Bourne, a Gumulgal woman, Torres Strait Islander and former member of the Path to Treaty Eminent PanelMs Sallyanne Atkinson AO, first female Lord Mayor of Brisbane, former Senior Trade Commissioner (Paris) and former Special Representative for Queensland in South East Asia.Dr Huggins said she was pleased to see the commitment of the government continue.“We need to finish this business, to reconcile our past so we can as a State move forward together, all Queenslanders, in a fair and just way. I have strong hope and confidence in Queenslanders that we can do this and that the time has come,” Ms Huggins said.Mr Mick Gooda said Treaty is a long and emotional journey.“The Treaty Advancement Committee is independent from government in forming its advice and developing options to implement the Panel’s recommendations.“It’s important to build the trust of the Queensland community and to show that we are acting in to improve life in our great country for everyone,” Mr Gooda said.Ms Sallyanne Atkinson AO said she was delighted to join the Path to Treaty to show how important the process is to all Queenslanders.“This is also nation-building and as Queenslanders we want to walk beside each other on this path in a spirit of reconciliation,” Ms Atkinson said.On 13 August 2020, the Queensland Government confirmed its commitment to progressing a path to Treaty, and publicly released its response to the Eminent Panel and Treaty Working Group advice and recommendations.The appointed Treaty Advancement Committee maintains a core of the Eminent Panel members, with four of the appointees having helped to lead the first step on the Path to Treaty.The Treaty Advancement Committee is expected to report to Government on options later this year. /Public Release.

Extended Temporary Telehealth by End of Month

first_imgExtended Temporary Telehealth by End of Month The AMA has written to Prime Minister Scott Morrison, who is the acting Health Minister, calling on the Federal Government to extend until the end of the year temporary telehealth arrangements under Medicare that have supported patients to have a consultation with their doctor either over the phone or by video.These arrangements, which were put in place as part of the Government’s COVID-19 response and further extended last year, will end on 31 March if not extended.“The current uncertainty over the future of temporary COVID 19 Medicare telehealth items means that patients and practices can’t plan consultations beyond the end of this month, even though we are still in the middle of the pandemic,” AMA President, Dr Omar Khorshid, said today.“With the emergence of new and more transmissible COVID-19 variants, the community continues to live with the ever-present threat of tightened restrictions and lockdowns. For medical practices to be able to continue to deliver services to patients when these happen, telehealth remains an essential part of practice.“While the level of community transmission has been at or around zero for some months and the vaccine rollout has commenced, the pandemic is far from over and we cannot become complacent.“We must continue to plan for the worst and ensure that continuity of care can be maintained for patients.“Temporary Medicare telehealth items have supported the provision of care during these very difficult times and contributed to efforts to contain the spread of the virus. Telehealth has been embraced by doctors and the public alike.“It was not that long ago that Victoria and most of Western Australia were in lockdown, and snap lockdowns remain an option for any State or Territory having to deal with a future outbreak.“Telehealth remains fundamental to our national efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19 and ending the temporary arrangements in a couple of weeks would be premature.“The telehealth arrangements also ensure that patients who are self-isolating can still access care.“The AMA has been in discussions with the Department of Health about a long-term plan for telehealth, and we know that the Government is committed to making it a permanent feature of our health system.“However, in the short term, we need a telehealth framework that can operate in the context of a pandemic response.” /Public Release.

Digital tools to help Australian businesses

first_imgDigital tools to help Australian businesses Joint media release with the Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment, the Hon Dan Tehan MPThe Morrison Government today launches a range of digital tools to help Australian businesses to reach new international markets and customers. The export.business.gov.au website features interactive market insights, trends as well as information on grants, funding, local laws and regulations, distribution and shipping. The Morrison Government funded the site through its $21.4 million commitment for a Trade Information Service to support Australian businesses to access new international markets. Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment Dan Tehan said the tool would help Australian businesses grow and reach new customers. “International trade supports Australian businesses and Australian jobs, that’s why the Morrison Government is helping businesses find new markets and new opportunities for their products,” Mr Tehan said. “Australia posted a record calendar year trade surplus of $72.7 billion in 2020 and our efforts to encourage trade diversification are already paying off with a number of agriculture products finding new markets in Vietnam, Indonesia, Egypt, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom and Korea. “These tools will help drive more market diversification and encourage more Australian businesses to engage in international trade, which is good for jobs and the economy.” Minister for Industry, Science and Technology Karen Andrews said Austrade’s export services would be available through easy to navigate, self-service tools, insights and advice on demand. “To grow Australian industry and create new local jobs, we need our businesses to tap into new markets around the world – and export.business.gov.au will bring Austrade’s insights and advice, into one easy to use place,” Minister Andrews said. Export Council of Australia Chair Dianne Tipping said there was enormous potential for businesses to embrace innovative digital offerings. “If you’re thinking about going global, but unsure where to start, Austrade’s digital export services can take the guess work out of the research process and fast-track your export journey,” Ms Tipping said. “For those new to export there’s a quick check-list to understand the market potential for your product, pointing to further information on the opportunities and challenges in your chosen market.” AUSVEG National Manager for Export Development Michael Coote said Austrade’s digital export services had practical benefits for the agricultural sector. “This is an important tool for Australian businesses seeking to navigate the complexities of exporting agricultural produce – and a useful platform for both new exporters considering established export markets, and existing exporters looking to enter emerging markets,” Mr Coote said. “Agri-businesses looking to capitalise on growth and stay one step ahead of a rapidly changing export landscape can more readily access Austrade advice and insights on top-performing markets to inform their trade and diversification strategies to expand and take advantage of the opportunities available through export.” /Public Release.
