US producer prices up 04 per cent in June on rising gas

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email US producer prices up 0.4 per cent in June on rising gas costs; overall inflation still mild by Josh Boak, The Associated Press Posted Jul 16, 2014 6:35 am MDT WASHINGTON – Rising gasoline costs pushed up the prices U.S. companies receive for their goods and services in June, but overall inflation remains tame.The Labor Department said Wednesday that the producer price index, which measures the cost of goods and services before they reach the consumer, rose 0.4 per cent last month. The increase follows a 0.2 per cent decrease in May.Gas costs rose 6.4 per cent in June. Steel prices shot up 3 per cent. But prices fell for grains, cheese and rental cars to offset some of those increases.In the past 12 months, producer prices have risen 1.9 per cent, roughly in line with the Federal Reserve’s inflation target of 2 per cent.But inflation appears unlikely to accelerate based on producer prices. Crude oil prices have fallen in July, after surging last month on reports of Iraq being destabilized by the Sunni militia known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.“Nothing here is going to worry the Fed, particularly not when crude oil prices have most recently fallen back,” said Paul Ashworth, chief US economist at Capital Economics.Consumer prices have tended to track the costs for producers. They rose in May in response to food and energy costs increasing earlier in the year for wholesalers. Consumer prices rose 2.1 per cent in May compared to the year prior.Retailer and wholesaler profit margins increased 0.2 per cent in June. Excluding the volatile food, energy and profit margin categories, core producer prices were up 0.2 per cent last month.The Fed targets inflation at about 2 per cent as a guard against deflation, which can drag down wages and spark a recession. At the same time, the Fed wants to avoid excessive inflation and protect consumers and the purchasing power of the dollar.Low inflation should provide a foundation for consumers to spend, but it also reflects the weak recovery from the Great Recession that is now entering its sixth year. Businesses are reluctant to raise their prices, if their customers lack the income to afford their goods and services.Wage growth has been meagre and unemployment, now at 6.1 per cent, has been slow to recede since the recession. That has limited consumer spending, which accounts for about 70 per cent of all economic activity.Still, low inflation has enabled the Fed to pursue extraordinary measures to boost the economy. This includes holding shorter-term interest rates near zero and purchasing bonds to depress longer-term interest rates. It has begun to unwind some of those measures, cutting its monthly bond-buying program to $35 billion from $85 billion last year.Those bond purchases had ensured low interest rates that encouraged investors to pour money into the economy. read more

Vacant Seanad seat should be filled by someone with a unionist background

It is clear now that after 20 years of the Good Friday Agreement, there is political polarisation when agreement cannot be reached on restoring Northern Ireland power-sharing,” said the senator, adding:center_img Wednesday 14 Feb 2018, 3:57 PM As the clock ticks down, get all the best Brexit news and analysis in your inbox: Image: Laura Hutton/Photocall Ireland Feb 14th 2018, 3:57 PM It would be very encouraging to see a member of the Westminster Parliament representing the unionist/loyalist community at these meetings to articulate the needs of their community, as the Nationalist MPs have done to great effect over the last 11 years.The idea isn’t unheard of.Speaking about Seanad reform earlier this month, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said people from Northern Ireland – from both nationalist and unionist communities – should be able to take seats in the Seanad, stating that it would add an “all-island dimension”.Varadkar said having both nationalist and unionist representatives would provide “different voices on issues which concern us all”.The Sunday Independent reported last weekend about speculation the Taoiseach intends to nominate former Ulster Farmers’ Union president Ian Marshall to the Seanad.Read: Taoiseach says electing people from Northern Ireland will give the Seanad an ‘all-island dimension’>Read: ‘D.

Genocide memorial gets the goahead

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Preston’s Ray Bramham Gardens will house Australia’s first memorial to victims of genocide. Spokeswoman Katarina Brozovic said the monument will be welcomed in the area, as it is “important for people to have that place where they can come and reflect”. The site gives those who have lost family to the horrors of genocide in countries such as Greece, Germany and Srebenica a space to go and pay their respects to their loved ones.The monument, designed by Darebin Ethnic Communities Council (DECC), was approved earlier this week on condition that the wording on any plaque first be approved by council. Bundoora resident Sofia Kotanidis is a leading supporter of the project. Her grandparents of Pontian Greek background survived the genocide of more than 353,000 people between 1916 and 1923 – a terrifying experience they rarely spoke about. “I’d hear my grandmother calling out people’s names and crying at night,” Ms Kotanidis told The Leader, which she eventually discovered to be names of friends and family members who’d lost their lives during the atrocity. “People didn’t speak about what they’d been through – they didn’t feel safe.“The new memorial will be a sign for people that they are safe and that they can come and remember and tell people how they feel and someone will listen.”DECC has chosen to unveil the memorial on 6 December to coincide with the United Nations 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide on 9 December 1948.Source: The Leaderlast_img read more

Happy Vishu 2019 wishes Quotes greetings messages significane and importance to share

first_imgVishu SadyaTwitterVishu (meaning “equal” in Sanskrit) is one of the important festivals in India. It is observed as the beginning of the month Medam according to Malayalam calendar. This year, Vishu falls on Monday, April 15, however, it was also celebrated on April 14 in some part of the country. This festival is celebrated in different parts of India where Assamese people celebrate it as Bihu, in Punjab, it’s called Baisakhi, Puthendu in Tamil Nadu and as Vishu Sankranti in Orissa.The customs and rituals may vary in different states but usually in Kerala, people exchange greetings, go to temples and apply traditional chandanam or sandal paste on their forehead.It is said that people should keep Vishukkani (also pronounced as VishuKani) in the puja room on the dawn of this auspicious day as the first sight for a peaceful and prosperous year ahead. VishuKani is basically a collection of various things like Holy books like Ramayanam or Bhagavatgita, fruits, vegetables, flowers, grain, coconut, gold, lamps, mirror.In Grand Sadya (feast), which is considered as the most important tradition of Vishu, people are served with a sumptuous lunch as they do during Onam festival. Additionally, people prepare special dishes like Vishu Kanji (made of rice, spices and coconut milk) and Vishu Katta (made from freshly harvested rice powder, coconut milk and jaggery) on the festival. In the evening people celebrate Vishu by bursting firecrackers.According to tradition, elders give Vishu Kaineetam (giving money) to younger ones in the family as a symbolic representation of wealth and sharing.

Defeated Republican Rep Mia Love Delivers Rebuke to Trump

first_imgBy LINDSAY WHITEHURST, Associated PressSALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The first and only black Republican woman in Congress delivered a sharp rebuke Monday to President Donald Trump and her party’s relationship with African-Americans in her first remarks since her midterm defeat.Mia Love was narrowly defeated by Democrat Ben McAdams for the suburban Salt Lake City House seat. The Associated Press called the race for McAdams on Nov. 20.Surrounded by her family, Rep. Mia Love, R-Utah, talks about election results in the 4th Congressional District at the Utah Republican Party headquarters Monday Nov. 26, 2018, in Salt Lake City. (AP Photo/Rick Bowmer)At a post-Election Day news conference earlier this month, Trump prematurely declared Love the loser, grouping her with other embattled Republican incumbents who failed to fully embrace him in their re-election bids.“She gave me no love — and she lost,” Trump quipped.Speaking to reporters Monday, Love said the president’s comments reflect the GOP’s larger failure to fully embrace minority communities, further solidifying their allegiance to Democrats.“Because Republicans never take minority communities into their home . and into their hearts, they stay with Democrats and bureaucrats in Washington, because they do take them home, or at least make them feel like they have a home,” Love said.Her ouster came as the Congressional Black Caucus swelled to its largest numbers ever and Congress overall became significantly more diverse, adding a record number of women and people of color in the midterm elections.“This is a matter of fact, that Republicans lost in this regard,” Love said.Trump’s comments about Love “gave me a clear vision of his world as it is,” she said. “No real relationships; just convenient transactions.”The White House did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.After the 2012 elections, the Republican National Committee said in an autopsy of the race: “If we want ethnic minority voters to support Republicans, we have to engage them, and show our sincerity,” warning, “Unless the RNC gets serious about tackling this problem, we will lose future elections.”The midterm elections featured racist rhetoric in several high-profile contests in states including Georgia, Florida, Mississippi and Texas. Trump campaigned in competitive Senate races with a fearful message about dangerous migrant caravan and has raised the specter of voter fraud — both tactics that many minorities have found offensive.Love said Monday she believes conservative policies are the best way to lift people out of poverty, but those messages have a harder time reaching minority voters.“The problem is not the policy; it’s that we are never taken into hearts and homes,” she said.Love says her defeat means she’s now “unleashed” to speak her mind. She declined to say if she will run again, or detail plans for the future.She also took a shot at her opponent on Monday, calling McAdams a “wolf in sheep’s clothing” and decrying the “horrible” criticism of her in the hard-fought race.The McAdams campaign said he appreciated a congratulatory call she placed to him over the weekend and “it’s time to put the election behind us.”Vote-counting was drawn out in the razor-thin race, and in the end McAdams defeated Love by fewer than 700 votes.He was well-known in the district as the mayor of Salt Lake County and pitched himself as a moderate who could work with Trump, and is vowing to oppose Nancy Pelosi as House speaker.Love, touted as a rising GOP star when she was elected in 2014, distanced herself from Trump during the race on issues including trade and immigration.The daughter of Haitian immigrants who stood behind her on Monday, Love highlighted times she stood up to the president, like when Trump used an expletive to describe her parents’ home country.Though Utah is deeply conservative, voters have long been uncomfortable with Trump’s brash style and comments about women and minorities. Her district also includes a large part of the suburbs of blue-leaning Salt Lake City.___AP writer Errin Haines Whack contributed to this report.last_img read more

Fake email sent to ED officers Rose Valley premises raided

first_imgKolkata: The Enforcement Directorate (ED), Eastern Region, has lodged a complaint with Bidhannagar Police alleging that the investigating officers of several important cases received a few fake e-mails allegedly in the name of Eastern Regional Special Director Yogesh Gupta.

When they contacted Gupta, it was found that the e-mail ID which was used was not Gupta’s. While checking the messages, several persons called up the ED office and informed that they have got certain notices very similar to the e-mail threat messages.

Later, one officer of Assistant Director rank submitted a written complaint to Bidhannagar Police against Rajan. Upon receiving the complaint, the Cyber Crime Police Station has already initiated a case on charges of cheating, forgery and identity theft of the Indian Penal Code and Information Technology Act. On the other hand, the ED officials conducted raids at five premises across the city in connection with the Rose Valley case. Sources informed that each five-member team raided several office premises including the residence of a senior Rose Valley official. It was alleged that after the CBI took over the charge of the Rose Valley and other financial scam cases, this person met with some important persons and politicians and demanded money with the promise to settle the matter.last_img read more
