But Seriously, Mr. President, About Those Salmon …

first_img In his State of the Union speech last night, President Barack Obama got some laughs while talking about the need for reorganizing government to make it more efficient. From the White House transcript: Then there’s my favorite example: The Interior Department is in charge of salmon while they’re in fresh water, but the Commerce Department handles them when they’re in saltwater. (Laughter.) I hear it gets even more complicated once they’re smoked. (Laughter and applause.) The joke was a bit unfair: Experts in salmon management say that shuffling federal agencies isn’t the best way to help salmon. And the punchline touches on an important issue in food safety. Salmon are managed by two agencies for an obvious reason: they are born in streams, grow up in the ocean, and return to streams to reproduce. While salmon are at sea, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is responsible for them. On land, the job is the legal mandate of the Department of the Interior ‘s Fish and Wildlife Service. So here’s where Obama’s example falls apart: In practice, FWS has delegated most responsibilities to NOAA, so there haven’t been any management problems stemming from the split federal jurisdiction, says Rich Lincoln, of the Wild Salmon Center, a non-profit group based in Portland, Oregon.

Syma Ebbin of the University of Connecticut, Avery Point, adds that communication and coordination between agencies can go a long way toward effectively managing species that cross political boundaries. “If we can meet that challenge, it will make our management much more resilient.” As for the complications of smoked salmon, Obama may have been referring to food safety. Regulatory authority over food is split between the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and advocates have argued that a reorganization of federal agencies would improve the safety of the food supply. For a sense of how fractured the system is, consider that FDA regulates sandwiches, but USDA handles open-faced sandwiches. (Not to harp on the joke, but smoked salmon, like all fish, is actually straightforward and covered solely by FDA.) It’s hard to know whether Obama will include food safety in his “proposal to merge, consolidate, and reorganize the federal government in a way that best serves the goal of a more competitive America” that he mentioned last night. But even if he does, says Marion Nestle of New York University, it’s not likely that Congress will approve it; much of the food industry opposes more regulation, she says.

Barcelona back on top after Lionel Messi stunner

first_imgBarcelona leapfrogged Atletico Madrid to go top of La Liga after Lionel Messi’s acrobatic volley secured a hard-fought 2-1 victory against tenacious Malaga on Saturday.Munir El Haddadi, deployed up front in place of the injured Neymar, fired Barca ahead in the second minute at the Rosaleda Stadium on the south coast after smart work from Luis Suarez.However, the visitors were unable to exert their customary control and 12th-placed Malaga, whose relentless pressing unsettled the Spanish and European champions, netted a deserved equaliser in the 32nd minute.Javier Mascherano surrendered possession in a dangerous area and the ball fell to midfielder Juanpi whose shot was deflected in off the former Liverpool player as he slid across to block.Messi was back in the side after sitting out Wednesday’s 2-1 King’s Cup triumph at Athletic Bilbao as a precaution but the FIFA Ballon d’Or winner was largely anonymous in the first half.Barca were much improved in the second period and took a 2-1 lead in the 51st minute when Messi cracked Adriano’s cross past keeper Carlos Kameni.The Argentina captain was falling away from the ball as it dropped and he caught it perfectly on the volley to send it arrowing into the corner for his 11th goal of an injury-disrupted campaign.Barca keeper Claudio Bravo then did well to palm away a shot from Ignacio Camacho in the 73rd minute and Kameni denied Messi a second with a superb one-handed save two minutes from time.”We perhaps didn’t deserve to be drawing 1-1 at the break considering what we did and what they did in the first half,” Barca captain Andres Iniesta told Spanish television.advertisement”We didn’t feel comfortable and Malaga were very well organised and made the most of it when we gave the ball away,” added the Spain international. “It shows how difficult it is to win in La Liga.”Barca, who have a game in hand over their rivals, have 48 points with just over half the season played, one ahead of Atletico before Diego Simeone’s side host seventh-placed Sevilla on Sunday.Real Madrid are four points adrift of Atletico in third place ahead of Sunday’s trip to Real Betis.Fourth-placed Villarreal missed a chance to draw level on points with Real when they needed a late goal from defender Mateo Musacchio to salvage a point in a 2-2 draw at mid-table Espanyol.Felipe Caicedo put Espanyol ahead in the fourth minute at their Cornella-El Prat stadium in Barcelona before Manuel Trigueros levelled 20 minutes later.Gerard Moreno, who earned a second yellow card and was sent off a minute from time, made it 2-1 to the home side in the 40th minute and Musacchio headed in from an 88th-minute corner.Celta Vigo, who are fifth, failed to take advantage of Villarreal’s stumble when they were beaten 3-0 at Rayo Vallecano.Rayo and fellow strugglers Granada climbed out of the relegation places after Granada won 3-2 at home to Getafe.last_img read more

Software Developed to Restrict Air Pollution from Ships

first_imgzoom A researcher from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) has developed in cooperation with MAN Diesel & Turbo a new software which limits emissions of NOx particles and black smoke from vessels, the university said.The invention is expected to be implemented in new marine engines from the end of 2017.The regulations on NOx emissions from ships have been tightened in recent years. Since 2016, there has been a requirement in North America to reduce emissions from large two-stroke diesel engines on new vessels by 75 percent and in a few years, the same reduction will also be required in the North Sea and the Baltic Sea.“EGR technology is one way of reducing NOx emissions. However, the regulator for the EGR technology meant that black smoke was created in connection with the rapid acceleration of a ship, which is undesirable and can damage the engine. The black smoke could be removed by maneuvering ships differently, but we wanted to maintain the current sailing properties and solve the problem in a different way instead,” Casper Hededal Svendsen, Head of Emission Control at MAN Diesel & Turbo, explained.Initially, the company tried conventional approaches, but, as this did not work, they decided they needed external assistance.The cooperation involved not only DTU Electrical Engineering but also Linköping University. This research served as inspiration for Ph.D. student Kræn Vodder Nielsen.“However, marine engines are very different. Sometimes they are two-stroke engines and not four-stroke engines, so it was not possible to just copy the approach from car engines,” Kræn Vodder Nielsen said.MAN Diesel & Turbo uses EGR technology, in which part of the exhaust gas is recirculated to the engine to limit NOx emissions. It is crucial in this context that the recirculation takes place with the right quantity of exhaust so that enough is recirculated to reduce the formation of NOx and there is sufficient oxygen to combust the fuel – thus preventing black smoke when the ship accelerates or slows down, according to the DTU.“I found out that the academic methods for development of the control of a marine engine with EGR technology at that time were too complex. Therefore, it quickly became clear to me that I had to develop a simple model that includes only the critical part of the system that we wanted to improve. From there, we developed a new control that coordinates the recirculation and fuel injection without requiring too much tuning of other parts of the system,” Kræn Vodder Nielsen further said.The new control technology was tested on a couple of marine engines during the project. The tests showed that it worked, avoiding the formation of black smoke without affecting the vessel’s maneuverability.Kræn is now employed by MAN Diesel & Turbo, where he is helping finalize his software.“Initially, I will go out and install it on the ships, but in the long term the plan is that I will write a guide so that shipbuilders and crews can fine-tune the system themselves,” Kræn pointed out.last_img read more

Lancement du projet pilote de la Cote air santé

first_imgLa Nouvelle-Écosse célèbre la Journée de l’air pur, aujourd’hui 2 juin, en apportant des améliorations à la Cote air santé. De juin à octobre, la Nouvelle-Écosse fera l’essai d’un nouveau système d’avertissement de la Cote d’air santé. Les avertissements seront transmis aux médias locaux et affichés sur le site Web d’Environnement Canada si la cote indique un risque élevé pour la santé. Le nouveau système offrira également des moyens supplémentaires d’aviser les Néo-Écossais lorsque le niveau de pollution atmosphérique est élevé. La Cote air santé pour la Nouvelle-Écosse se situe habituellement dans la catégorie du risque faible. « Nous prenons des mesures pour améliorer la vie des familles à l’échelle de la Nouvelle-Écosse, a dit Sterling Belliveau, ministre de l’Environnement. Ce système offre des renseignements importants sur la qualité de l’air dans nos communautés et contribue à protéger la santé des Néo-Écossais et de notre environnement. » La Cote air santé est particulièrement utile pour les Néo-Écossais qui sont plus susceptibles à la pollution atmosphérique, par exemple les aînés, les enfants, les personnes atteintes d’une maladie cardiaque ou respiratoire et les personnes qui font de l’activité physique à l’extérieur. « Ce système aide les Néo-Écossais à protéger leur santé en les encourageant à s’informer et, au besoin, à adapter leur niveau d’activité et le temps passé à l’extérieur, » a dit Maureen MacDonald, ministre de la Promotion et de la Protection de la santé. La cote est disponible dans la province depuis 2008, et des mises à jour sont affichées en ligne toutes les heures. La Cote air santé est disponible pour Halifax, Sydney, Greenwood et Kentville, et sera offerte à Pictou et Port Hawkesbury d’ici la fin du mois. « Avec l’ajout de Pictou et Port Hawkesbury, la cote est maintenant disponible dans 49 communautés du pays, » a dit Leona Aglukkaq, ministre fédérale de la Santé. La CAS est un excellent exemple de collaboration entre le gouvernement local, provincial et fédéral pour protéger la santé des Canadiens. » La Nouvelle-Écosse est la première province à faire l’essai de ce système d’avertissement public. Le système est un partenariat entre le ministère de l’Environnement de la Nouvelle-Écosse, le ministère de la Promotion et de la Protection de la santé de la Nouvelle-Écosse, Environnement Canada et Santé Canada.

Adrian Peterson Shines In Return To The NFL

Nine months ago Adrian Peterson’s left knee was shredded. Torn ACL and MCL — ligaments that provide mobility to the knee, a critical aspect to walking and everything to an NFL running back.The recovery on that type of severe injury surely was not supposed to be nine months. But Peterson clearly is a different breed. Not only did he dress for the Minnesota Vikings Sunday. Not only did he play for the Vikings against Jacksonville. Adrian Peterson was a factor, scoring two touchdowns while gaining 84 yards in a Vikings 26-23 win over the Jaguars.But the Minnesota crowd realized the significance and cheered Peterson almost as loudly as when he sprinted out of the tunnel during the pregame introduction. The Vikings star returned without any trouble, rewarding his team’s trust in his repaired left knee with a typical two-touchdown performance.”I just went out and played. I knew the structure of the ligament was good,”  Peterson said.  His runs of 10 and 20 yards set up rookie kicker Blair Walsh’s 38-yard kick after the Vikings won the overtime coin toss.Peterson’s first carry of the afternoon was unremarkable in style, a simple 4-yard gain after a stutter step at the line of scrimmage. Fittingly, Peterson was more upset about the hole he missed on his first run than relieved his first real rushing attempt ended without harm.”Knowing his mindset, if coach Frazier would’ve said no, I think he probably would’ve still dressed up and played,” said quarterback Christian Ponder, who finished 20 for 27 for 270 yards and no interceptions, though he lost a fumble in the third quarter that led to one of Josh Scobee’s three field goals.Lost a little in the hubbub over Peterson’s return was the fact that Maurice Jones-Drew was in the backfield for the Jaguars, too, one week after ending his contract-related holdout. After starter Rashad Jennings hurt his knee, Jones-Drew wound up with 77 yards on 19 carries.”It was good to be out there, standing with them, be out on the pass game, block a little, get hit,” said Jones-Drew, the NFL’s leading rusher last season. ”I just want to continue to improve, understand the offense more so Blaine doesn’t have to tell me where to go half the time.”Peterson was feeling the same way on the other end of the hall, except he went home with a victory to savor as well.”The boost that he gave us, and our fans’ reaction when he was introduced, was outstanding and lifted our players,” Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said. ”He’s special, without question.” read more

Grandmother chases off purse thief with mop and bucket

WWF non à lor illégal

first_imgWWF : non à l’or illégal !Monde – Dans cette période de cadeaux de Saint-Valentin, le WWF lance une campagne contre l’or illégal.Alors que de nombreux couples se sont offert ou vont s’offrir des bijoux en or, le WWF tente de sensibiliser sur les conséquences dramatiques du commerce de l’or illégal, tout d’abord pour l’environnement et la biodiversité, mais aussi pour la santé, sans oublier l’aspect social de ce marché illicite. En effet, les orpailleurs utilisent du mercure, hautement toxique, afin de trouver les paillettes d’or : environ 1,3 kg de mercure pour un kilo du métal précieux. De ce fait, les rivières sont dangereusement polluées, les poissons sont contaminés et naturellement, en suivant la chaîne alimentaire, les hommes deviennent à leur tour victimes de cette dangereuse pollution. Selon le WWF : “Les populations amérindiennes souffrent d’empoisonnement”. De plus, il apparaît, après des tests effectués sur des cheveux d’enfants, que l’organisme de ces derniers contient un taux de mercure deux fois supérieur au maximum préconisé par l’OMS.Il en va de même pour la biodiversité : les chercheurs d’or ne cessent de détruire les forêts et de détourner les cours d’eau afin d’y trouver le fameux métal précieux. En parallèle, corruption, trafic d’armes, de drogue et prostitution se développent. Rien qu’en Guyane, région la plus touchée par l’orpaillage illégal, 22 tonnes d’or ont été exportées à l’étranger entre 2000 et 2008. L’origine exacte de ces cargaisons n’est pas connue. Cette nouvelle ruée vers l’or, due à la flambée du cours de ce métal, a lieu dans toute la région amazonienne. Aucune traçabilité de l’or n’est appliquée chez les bijoutiers. Ainsi, le WWF lance une campagne pour sensibiliser les consommateurs. Le principal point : poser trois questions au bijoutier afin de savoir si l’on a à faire à de l’or illégal ou pas : Savez-vous d’où vient l’or que vous proposez ? Savez-vous comment il été produit ? Qu’est-ce qui me garantit qu’il a respecté, de la mine à la vitrine, des standards exigeants en matière environnementale et sociale ?À lire aussiLes tamanoirs, des animaux plus dangereux qu’ils n’en ont l’airL’organisme exige une traçabilité de l’or arrivant en France. Il demande aussi un soutien pour les personnes défavorisées voulant se lancer dans l’orpaillage, de manière à empêcher ces populations de basculer dans l’illégalité.Pour signer la pétition, rendez-vous sur le site : 15 février 2010 à 13:19 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Colorado State University introduces paid parental leave for graduate assistants

first_imgColorado State University has introduced a new paid parental leave policy for graduate assistants who are enrolled on a full time master’s or PhD programme.The policy allows graduate assistants who are a primary caregiver to take up to six weeks of paid parental leave immediately after the birth or adoption of a child. Non-primary caregivers are entitled to three weeks of paid parental leave under the policy.The policy applies to eligible graduate assistants who are the new parent of a child, including mothers, fathers, and spouses, domestic partners, and civil union partners of the child’s mother or father.The new parental leave benefit, which came into effect on 16 August 2016, aims to enhance the work-life balance of graduate students.The policy’s introduction was spearheaded by Katherine Lininger, Grace Miner, and Cheryl Bowker, graduate students at Colorado State University, who worked with the dean of the university’s graduate school.A task force was then established to create the policy, and gather input from relevant parties. A survey of 1,100 graduate students was also conducted to help inform the policy.In addition to the new parental leave scheme, faculty staff are encouraged to be flexible when parents return from leave.Lininger said: “Giving parents options that promote professional-personal balance allows them to excel in their academic pursuits. Financial support is an important piece of the equation.”Bowker added: “We wanted to further encourage a culture that values and supports everyone. This policy is a step in the right direction.“We are proud of the policy and the example it sets. Hopefully this will pave the way for implementing other inclusive policies.”last_img read more

Nations first group of K12 Russian immersion students graduates from West Anchorage

first_img(Left to Right) Russian teacher Elena Farkas, Anastasia Erikson, Wesley Piscoya and Parker Roy. Erikson, Piscoya and Roy all graduated from West Anchorage High School on May 17, 2017 (Photo by Wesley Early, Alaska Public Media – Anchorage)On Wednesday, as West Anchorage High School students walked down the aisle of the Sullivan Arena, they filed into their seats, waiting patiently for diplomas they had worked for the last four years to receive. But for 17 of the students, they had received scholastic recognition at a ceremony two weeks earlier.Listen nowThey were first batch of students to spend their entire educational lives in a Russian language immersion program at West Anchorage High School last night. The students were the first in the nation to complete the program — attending classes in Russian from kindergarten to the 12th grade. The program was designed for American students specifically so they could learn Russian from a young age, four to five.Elena Farkas is the teacher in charge of the immersion program. She’s known these students for most of their lives. She says that when the program began there were language courses for Russian, but none of them as robust.“We already had high school programs. We already had middle school programs,” Farkas said. “The only component that was missing was elementary component. And when the Anchorage School District applied for the FLAP grant, we received it. And we started. From all of the states, we’re the only ones who received that grant.”The grant allowed for a Russian language lottery system to be set up that fed students from Turnagain Elementary into Romig Middle School and finally through West Anchorage High School. Parents would enter their kids into the lottery and those selected would go through the 13 year program.Ms. Farkas has a lot of Russian posters and memoribilia on the walls of her classroom (Photo by Wesley Early, Alaska Public Media – Anchorage)In fact, the first name picked from the lottery 13 years ago, graduated high school yesterday. His name is Wesley Piscoya.Piscoya’s parents entered him into the Russian language lottery at a time when the family contemplated whether to stay in Anchorage or move to Soldotna for work.“My mom said, ‘Well let’s just put Wesley into the lottery for here.’ She was really praying hard to God, ‘You need to show us a sign. You need to really show us where you want us,’” Piscoya said. “They got a call a couple weeks later saying, ‘Well, Wesley got into the program.’ And mom’s like, ‘Great. I guess we’re staying here.’ And then at the very end of the conversation they said, ‘Oh yeah, by the way. Wesley was pulled first.’”Piscoya said the family took that as a very clear sign. During the many years he was in the program, Piscoya said that his classmates became more than faces he saw each day.“You’ve know them for 13+ years, so it’s very much a family,” Piscoya said. “I know I can come to these guys with any problems that I might have with any part of my life. If I have homework problems or social problems.”Building a community was a huge benefit to another of the immersion program’s students, Anastasia Erikson. Erikson’s family is Russian and she’s originally from Tok. They moved to Anchorage for better educational opportunities.“We didn’t really have any friends here, or any family, and so we figured we should hop into this program,” Erikson said. “My mom was a teacher at Tok, so teaching Russian was a given for her, and it would be a great place for us to start a community and start to get to know people. Coming into something that’s Russian, something that we were comfortable with as a family.”Erikson said beyond the intrinsic benefit of learning another language, she found that it also helped her in other classes.“I found that as I continued the program, I’ve gotten better at math,” Erikson said. “And there are studies that show that if you have a different language, your brain will work in different ways and it will open up to information easier.”A photo of the immersion group in the sixth grade (Photo by Wesley Early, Alaska Public Media – Anchorage)Erikson, Piscoya and fellow student Parker Roy all have siblings who are also in the Russian program. Roy said the program has given her opportunities to both practice learning and teach.“I have three younger siblings who are all in the program as well,” Roy said. “So between homework and stuff, my parents… I’ll be up in my room and they’ll say, ‘Parker. Help! We don’t know what this means.’ And I have to come down and tell them how to do the homework and help my little brother.”Neither of Roy’s parents speak another language and they wanted her to have as many opportunities as possible. She said she found the whole program to be wonderful, and she’s interested in speaking more than just Russian and English.“I took Spanish freshmen year. And my teacher said I was really good at it,” Roy said. “I didn’t fully agree, because I’d get confused with my English and my Russian — er my Spanish and my Russian. And I’d have a question for my teacher and I’d plan out what I wanted to say, and then I’d go to ask him and I’d say it in Russian.”When asked by Ms. Farkas — in Russian, of course — what their post-high school plans are, Parker said she has dreams of being trilingual and becoming a diplomat after going to the University of Montana. Wesley plans on working in criminology following his time at UAF in Fairbanks. Anastasia will attend UAS in Juneau where she wants to learn Tlingit and become an archaeologist. All three plan on using their Russian now that high school has ended.Ms. Farkas said all of her immersion classes have been filling up every year since the program started.last_img read more

Evidence dinosaur walked on all fours when young and switched to bipedalism

Like other sauropod species, it had a long neck and tail, walked upright, and weighed approximately one metric ton. It was also known to be quite small after hatching—small enough to fit in the modern human hand. This piqued the interest of the researchers, who wondered if it might have walked on all fours in its early stages of growth.To learn more about M. patagonicus development, the researchers obtained and studied sample bone fossils from three periods during the life of the dinosaur: just after they were born, at one year, and as adults. They then used computer simulations to fill in the rest of the anatomy of the dinosaur. Next, they calculated the center of gravity for the dinosaur at each stage of its life. For a creature to walk upright, its center of gravity must be over its back legs, rather than farther up its spine, as is the case with animals like cats and dogs.The researchers found that during its early stages, the center of gravity for the dinosaur was farther up the spine, suggesting it walked on all fours. They also found that the center of gravity did not shift until the dinosaur reached adulthood, suggesting that it walked on all fours for most of its young life.The finding is unique, because other than humans, no other species is known to walk on all fours during early stages of development and transition to bipedalism after growing to adulthood. The finding suggests that other dinosaurs might have done so, as well. More information: Alejandro Otero et al.

Indias anemic growth slows to 47 percent

first_imgMUMBAI, India (AP) – India’s growth decelerated to 4.7 percent in the October-December quarter last year, the government said Friday, showing that a return to the robust economic expansion of a few years ago remains far from reach.It was the fifth quarter in a row that year-on-year GDP growth was below 5 percent in Asia’s third-largest economy. The growth rate was down from 4.8 percent for the previous quarter ending in September. Arizona families, Arizona farms: working to produce high-quality milk Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility India’s government has struggled to bring back the 8 percent growth rate the country averaged for a decade. That level is what the government says is needed to provide jobs for the 13 million people entering the workforce each year out of a population of 1.2 billion.Growth in the latest quarter was dragged down by a year-on-year contraction of 1.8 percent in manufacturing and a 1.6 percent drop in mining.Anjalika Bardalai, an analyst for Eurasia Group, said the weakened numbers for the October-December third fiscal quarter make it all but sure India would have economic growth below 5 percent for a second fiscal year.Just a few years ago, India was touted as a rising economic power that could even outdo China.But both growth and enthusiasm began to fade starting in 2012 as shortages of electricity for industry discouraged investment and the decrepit state of roads and ports hampered trade in goods. A tangled bureaucracy to approve new projects and delays in economic reforms added to the disillusion, while high inflation and weak Indian consumer spending have also hurt the economy.While India’s has managed to bring down its worrisome fiscal and trade deficits in the last year, it has been unable to spur growth. The country’s high inflation makes it difficult for the central bank to lower interest rates to spur growth.

Pay us our wages or we go on strike staff tell JP

first_imgIn the latest twist in the ongoing saga concerning construction giant Joannou & Paraskevaides Group, staff at J&P Overseas’ Saudi Arabia operations have threatened to down tools if they are not paid some 80m Saudi Arabian Riyals ($21.3m) they are owed by the end of August.In a May 24 letter to CEO Andreas Papathomas, seen by the Sunday Mail and signed by 822 people, the workers expressed concern over their overdue payments for February, March, and April, as well as annual package balances for the past three years.Most of the 5,500 staff has not been paid since February though for some it has been longer than six months. Saudi nationals working for the company have been paid until April.The staff said they had remained loyal to the company during the difficult period it was going through and by doing so they had unwillingly contributed to its financing to the tune of around SAR80m.They said that they had expected a similar gesture from Papathomas, “and at the very least to reimburse” them with an equivalent amount to prove his commitment to the survival of the company.However, they said, events in the past few months left them with little faith that the overdue sums will be paid.The workers said they were putting the company “under final notice” that as a minimum they wanted a written commitment from the board by May 31 that outstanding salary payments for all employees were secured and that they would be paid in strict accordance to a timeframe they provided ending on August 31.The workers also asked for a written pledge that all future payments would be secured.“In case the above commitment is not confirmed we will be left with no other option but to suspend any work on the sites and offices.”Papathomas responded on May 31 saying he would do his best to ensure one month’s pay by June 15, imploring the workers to be patient and reminding them that in its 60-year history, the company had never failed to meet its obligations.He said the company was finalising the terms of a “mobilisation loan in a substantial amount” and once received, it would have funds not only to pay salaries but also to actively operate on the sites and raising income to pay salaries in the future.“The lack of liquidity experience in recent months is the result of unpaid overdue amounts from the company’s clients, the collection of which we are pursuing on an urgent basis,” Papathomas said.Papathomas said the company “fully accepts liability for all salaries and obligations that are due to its employees” and he appealed to their loyalty asking for a further 15 days to give the company time to sort out funds and draft a payment plan close to the one demanded by the workers.“In the meantime, I have requested that the JPO BoD [board of directors] takes immediate steps to pay you one further month salary within the next 15 days. In this respect, please rest assured that I am personally making strenuous efforts to expedite the BoD’s decision on this matter.”Before Papathomas’ letter, Tasos Constantinou, the group’s chief operations officer and general manager for Saudi Arabia, convened a meeting of managers and senior personnel and asked them to postpone the strike because the company would close. He too asked for 15 days to secure the guarantees the staff wanted.In the meantime, an email from Papathomas to Constantinou was leaked blaming the Joannou family for the delays. Papathomas had also paid for an advertisement in Cyprus newspapers, blaming the Joannou family for company’s inability to meet its financial obligations in Saudi Arabia, a claim rejected in a subsequent ad by J&P.June 15 has come and gone without any developments. Saudi Arabia is observing the Ramadan Eid holiday and there will be no work until Wednesday. Constantinou will not be back in the country before June 25.The company’s problems became public in March when an earlier letter from the workers to Papathomas was leaked detailing their hardship because of being unpaid for months.In April, J&P Overseas said it had made €120m from the sale of an airport in Jordan, boosting its cashflow and enabling the company to pay staff in Saudi Arabia but it appears that cashflow problems persist. Some €45m from the revenue went to the banks, while the Joannou family had demanded that Papathomas submitted a detailed plan on how the money would be used.It was also reported recently that siblings Efthivoulos and Leoni Paraskevaidi had forced their mother Thelma off the board of J&P Ltd, the first company set up in Cyprus in 1941, because they consider her support for Papathomas the main cause of the problems.The Paraskevaides family has been split into two camps, Efthivoulos and Leoni on one, and Thelma and her other daughter, Christina, and son-in-law Papathomas on the other. Leonie and Efthyvoulos are currently in court in Cyprus trying to have Papathomas removed from his position, a move the Joannou family also supports.  You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoIcePopMan Notices A Strange Hole In This Lake, So He Gets A Drone, Flies It Inside And Captures ThisIcePopUndoModernizeIf Your Home Has Old Roofing, Read ThisModernizeUndo Three arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoAuthorities release five of 12 Israeli rape suspects, seven due in court FridayUndoVarosha move merely a ‘PR stunt’ by Ozersay, expert saysUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
