first_imgTORONTO – A U.S. Tim Hortons franchisee has closed two restaurants amid a dispute with the coffee shop company.Show Me Hospitality LLC, a developer for Tim Hortons in the St. Louis area, is suing Tim Hortons USA Inc. for failing to meet its obligations.The franchisee says after Restaurant Brands International Inc. (TSX:QSR) acquired Tim Hortons in 2014 it asked Show Me Hospitality to increase its obligations to develop Tim Hortons restaurants in the St. Louis area from 40 restaurants over five years to more than 200 restaurants over 10 years.However, after Show Me Hospitality says it rejected the demand, it alleges Tim Hortons stopped approving locations for restaurants and failed to provide branding and advertising.It also alleges Tim Hortons withheld approval of new partners and necessary capital investment and said that if Show Me Hospitality did not commit to the 200 restaurant program, it would terminate the area development agreement.The allegations have not been proven in court.In an email, a Restaurant Brands International spokesperson says the company “strongly denies” the claims brought by the franchisee, adding that they refer to a small number of U.S. restaurants.The fight comes amid other disputes between Tim Hortons franchisees and Restaurant Brands.In Canada, the Great White North Franchisee Association has been looking to raise franchisee concerns including the use of advertising funds and cost-cutting measures that it says impact product quality.last_img read more

12 April 2011A new United Nations report highlights progress made by the Palestinian Authority in building institutions necessary for a functioning State, while stressing the need for Israel to roll back “measures of occupation” and for an urgent resumption of negotiations between the two sides. A new United Nations report highlights progress made by the Palestinian Authority in building institutions necessary for a functioning State, while stressing the need for Israel to roll back “measures of occupation” and for an urgent resumption of negotiations between the two sides. “In the limited territory under its control and within the constraints on the ground imposed by unresolved political issues, the PA has accelerated progress in improving its governmental functions,” states the report, entitled “Palestinian State-building: A Decisive Period.”Prepared by the office of the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process (UNSCO), the report notes that in the six areas where the UN is most engaged, governmental functions are now sufficient for a functioning government of a State. These are governance, rule of law and human rights; livelihoods and productive sectors; education and culture; health; social protection; and infrastructure and water. In each sector, the report provides a detailed assessment of progress to date in light of strong Palestinian reform efforts and donor engagement. It notes Israeli measures to facilitate movement and access which have also supported economic activity.The report was prepared for tomorrow’s meeting in Brussels of the Ad Hoc Liaison Committee, the 12-member body that serves as the principal policy-level coordination mechanism for development assistance to the Palestinian people. The meeting is the last expected gathering of the committee before the September 2011 target date for completion of institutional readiness for statehood set by the Palestinian Authority and supported by the diplomatic grouping known as the Quartet – which comprises the UN, European Union, Russia and the United States.UN Special Coordinator Robert Serry commended the progress achieved by President Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Minister Salam Fayyad.“This is a decisive period, as we approach the September 2011 target for the PA’s institutions to be ready for statehood. It is also the target set by the parties to reach a negotiated permanent status agreement to create a Palestinian State at peace with Israel,” he said.While the Palestinian Authority is clearly “on track,” said Mr. Serry, “the institutional achievements of the State-building agenda are approaching their limits within the political and physical space currently available, precisely at the time when it is approaching its target date for completion. “No one should underestimate what is at stake now. What we urgently need are further steps on the ground that can enable a broadening of this progress,” he added. “I believe Israel needs to roll back measures of occupation to match the PA’s achievements. I also stress the urgent need for Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations on a two-State solution to resume, if the State-building and political tracks are to come together by September.”Senior UN officials have been calling for months now for an end to the impasse in Israeli-Palestinian negotiations, which have been stalled since late September following Israel’s refusal to extend a 10-month freeze on settlement activity in the occupied Palestinian territory. That decision prompted Mr. Abbas to withdraw from direct talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, which had only resumed a few weeks earlier after a two-year hiatus.The report also cites the need to more fully address the socio-economic situation in Gaza, including as Mr. Serry stated, the need for further approval of UN projects, a streamlining of coordination procedures, and the liberalization of the import of construction materials.“The people of Gaza need this, and it would send an important signal,” he stated.The report also voices concern about the lack of the presence of the Palestinian Authority in Gaza – which was taken over by Hamas in June 2007 – resulting in a “disconnect” between Gazans and many Palestinian institutions. read more

MONTREAL — Rio Tinto’s iron and titanium subsidiary has abandoned plans to build a $4-billion plant in Becancour, Que., that would have created up to 400 jobs.The decision comes amid a collapse of titanium prices and follows the replacement of the global mining giant’s chief executive.Rio Tinto Iron & Titanium said the move stems from its decision to suspend pre-feasibility studies under way in Canada and Madagascar.Managing director Jean-Francois Turgeon said the company needs to reduce costs among weaker market conditions, despite the progress made on its TO4 project designed to expand mining and smelting capacity in Canada, Madagascar, South Africa and Mozambique.Becancour was selected because of its access to cheap energy and proximity to a port.A company spokesman said the decision won’t affect operations in Sorel or Havre-Saint-Pierre, Que.It says this is unrelated to a five-year $800 million project that was announced in 2011 to extend the life of a mine until 2050 and modernize the Sorel-Tracy metallurgical complex.The project known as TiO2050 will expand mining to seven from five days a week, creating 70 new jobs.The subsidiary of the London-based mining giant produces titanium dioxide feedstocks, high purity iron, steel and metal powders. Tiitanium dioxide is the world’s most commonly used white pigment, and adds opacity to paper, paints and plastics. read more

Ottawa puts new employment insurance regime into effect early next month AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email OTTAWA – Ottawa is forging ahead with contentious changes to employment insurance, announcing an implementation date of Jan. 6, despite heated opposition from unions and politicians from eastern Canada.Starting in the new year, people on EI will face stricter, more complex rules for keeping their benefits, with the goal of getting unemployed workers back into the workforce sooner.As Human Resources Minister Diane Finley initially announced last May, new regulations will encourage unemployed workers to take available jobs fairly close to home, even if they pay a bit less than their previous work.“The regulatory process is complete now, so it’s time to move forward and bring it into effect,” Finley said in an interview.“They’re going to see a lot more in the way of support in helping them finding a new job. they’re going to receiving more job alerts, and they’re going to have access to supports in that regard. I think that’s a huge improvement than what’s in the past.”Finley spelled out the details on Thursday.As always, EI claimants need to be engaged in a “reasonable job search” to find “suitable employment,” but now, those terms have been defined more concisely.Starting in January, a reasonable job search includes research job opportunities, preparing a resume, registering for job banks, attending job fairs, applying for jobs, and undergoing competency evaluations.“Suitable employment” will be determined by:— Personal circumstances, such as health, physical capability to perform work, family obligations, transportation options;— Whether commuting time is within one hour of home, or perhaps more depending a claimant’s previous commuting history and the average commuting time in the community;— Whether the hours of the new job are compatible with the claimant’s life;— Whether the position in question is simply available because of a labour dispute;— A person’s qualifications and wages.Eligibility will also be determined by whether a claimant is considered a long-tenured worker, a frequent claimant or occasional claimant.“It’s all going to be based on personal circumstances,” Finley said.“What was the individual’s previous work pattern? How long was their previous commute? What kind of hours did they work? Day shift or night shift? Will they be incurring additional expenses for a new job such as travel or child care?”At the same time, the government will be sending each claimant more labour market information — job postings and other information about the local job market. Plus, the government has pledged to strengthen the links between EI and the temporary foreign worker program, to make sure foreigners aren’t being brought in to take jobs that Canadians need.But unions and opposition MPs say the federal government is hurting seasonal workers and easterners, and will force people to take low-paying jobs.“For workers in the Atlantic provinces, these reforms are catastrophic,” said Wayne Lucas, Newfoundland and Labrador president for the Canadian Union of Public Employees.“Their impact will be hardest on the thousands of workers in seasonal industries such as fishing, forestry, construction and tourism, including a high proportion of women.”Finley said she has listened to the concerns of seasonal workers.“The opposition has portrayed the new guidelines as very regimental and without any flexibility. and that’s absolutely not the case. It’s all about common sense, and making sure the person is better off working than not.” by Heather Scoffield, The Canadian Press Posted Dec 13, 2012 5:56 pm MDT read more

Tony Allen Ejected For Kick To Chris Paul Face

Memphis Grizzlies Tony Allen was ejected late in the first quarter against the Los Angeles Clippers Monday night after kicking Chris Paul in the face.Allen, a 2013 NBA first team defensive player, for some reason chose to stick his foot out instead of his body to stop Clippers’ point guard Paul from driving the lane. Check out the clip above to see how Allen managed to get his foot up high enough to hit Paul in the face as he moved to the basket.After the refs checked the tapes, he was charged with a Flagrant 2 foul and ejected from the game.It was clearly an accident and Allen checked on Paul after the hit. He also apologized on Twitter following the game:“1st thing 1st apologies 2 @CP3 accidental kick….. Feeling some type of way about being ejected …. so not my character !! 1st and last ejection ! That’s my word”“I accidentally kicked him in the head, but I’m pretty sure he knows it’s accidental and that isn’t my style of play,” Allen also told reporters.Though unintentional, it was still a dangerous play and could have ended a lot worse.  The NBA has not officially said whether or not Allen will be fined.Grizzlies ended up beating the Clippers at the Staples Center 106-102. read more

The Last Time The Chiefs Were This Good They Won A Super

PICKWIN PROB.PICKWIN PROB.WINNERREADERS’ NET PTS NYG68NYG59LAC+9.0– NE61NE66NE+0.1– In addition to having the fourth-best passer rating in this time frame, Smith has yet to throw an interception. And among these quarterbacks, Smith’s completion rate of 76.6 percent is the highest. The table above puts Smith in some nice company: Every QB joining him is either a Hall of Famer already or will likely be one soon — with the exception of Daunte Culpepper. (And unlike Culpepper, Smith doesn’t have the luxury of being able to heave jump balls to Randy Moss.) In this group, Culpepper and Smith also stand out as the only ones to not start at least one Super Bowl in their career to date. Culpepper may be alone in that regard after this season.In the PittsKansas City’s Week 6 opponent had a slightly less glorious Week 5. In fact, the Pittsburgh Steelers suffered one of the worst losses in their 85-year history. Ben Roethlisberger threw five interceptions in a brutal 30-9 loss at home to the Jacksonville Jaguars (yes, them). The Steelers’ loss was so bad that they dropped 55 Elo points, the 49th-worst single-game drop in more than 30,000 NFL games, and the franchise’s third-worst loss ever. Steelers fans may not want to remember the two worse losses, but we’ll remind them anyway: a 24-6 defeat at home to the newly formed Houston Texans in 2002 and a 34-10 thumping on the road against the previously winless Cincinnati Bengals in 1979 (ouch!).The latest loss means Roethlisberger is under intense pressure to retire, with even the two-time Super Bowl winner admitting that he might not have it anymore. That, along with the quarterback’s public spat with wide receiver Antonio Brown in Week 4, means the Steelers could be in a minor crisis. Pittsburgh finds itself 3-2 and atop the AFC North standings, with the Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals lurking just behind. Looking at the underwhelming slate of opponents the Steelers have played so far — the Cleveland Browns, Minnesota Vikings, Chicago Bears, Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars — gives even more cause for concern. The Steelers travel to the Chiefs next week before a home game against their bitter rivals the Bengals and a visit to the surprisingly good Detroit Lions. The rest of October could alter Big Ben’s plans in 2018.FiveThirtyEight vs. the crowdWeek 5 in our NFL prediction game — in which we invite you to pick football games and try to outsmart our Elo algorithm — was much better for you readers than the previous two weeks had been — readers were just 21 points behind the Elo predictions in Week 5 compared with 146.2 points behind in Weeks 3 and 4 combined. The readers made gains mostly by being less wrong than our algorithm. Both Elo and the readers picked the Oakland Raiders to beat the Ravens and the New York Giants to beat the Los Angeles Chargers, and neither of those picks worked out. However, the average reader was less confident in either the Raiders or the Giants of winning than Elo was, so readers lost fewer points on those misplaced bets.The biggest net gain for Elo came in the Miami Dolphins’ win over the Tennessee Titans. Even without factoring in that the Titans’ Marcus Mariota was inactive for the game, Elo put its faith in Jay Cutler and the Dolphins and was rewarded. (Never doubt Jay Cutler! Haha, no, we’re kidding. Definitely doubt him.) That’s it for this week — be sure you make your picks for Week 6. QBYEARTEAMW-LCOMP %YDSTDINTPASSER RATINGWON DIV.?MADE SB? The Kansas City Chiefs’ Week 5 win over the the Houston Texans was significant for several reasons. It squashed any lingering doubts about who the NFL’s best team is, as the league’s only 4-0 team moved to 5-0. It also solidified KC’s place atop our NFL projections, as we now give them a 97 percent chance of making the playoffs and an 81 percent chance of earning a coveted first-round bye. But perhaps the team’s most impressive achievement so far is this: These are the best Chiefs since KC’s last (and only) championship team, 48 years ago.Using Elo, our pet metric for judging a team’s strength at any given moment, we can trace the various incarnations of the Chiefs week by week in NFL history. Their current Elo rating of 1701 is the highest it has been since the team hit its all-time peak rating of 1775 after defeating the Vikings in Super Bowl IV. Of the 899 weeks for which we have Elo data on this team, there are only eight in which Kansas City’s rating was higher than it is right now — and all of them came in that 1969 campaign, in the last year of the AFL. Move over, Len Dawson, make room for Alex Smith.But we have certainly seen hot starts from Andy Reid’s team before. They started the 2013-14 season 9-0 and then lost five of their next seven regular-season games before bowing out to the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Wild Card game. So will this year be any different?The defense has regressed since the 2013 season, surrendering 22.2 points per game through five games, compared with 19.1 for the whole of the 2013 season. But they’ve maintained respectability despite losing star safety Eric Berry, who went down for the season with a torn Achilles tendon in the team’s opening-night road win over the New England Patriots. And any step back here has been more than compensated for by improvements on offense. Led by Smith and rookie running back Kareem Hunt, the offense is off to a blistering pace, averaging an NFL-best 32.8 points per game, 5.9 points better than the 2013 team managed to produce.This may be hard to digest, but Smith is having one of the best starts to a season of any quarterback in NFL history. In almost every major offensive category — passing completion rate, passer rating, adjusted yards per attempt and interceptions — Smith ranks among the best. Here are the best season-opening five-game stretches ever, according to passer rating, among QBs who made more than 150 passing attempts in that span in any season since 1950. 3D.

first_imgThe state of Washington is considering relocating the Department of Fish and Wildlife’s southwest region headquarters from Vancouver to the Port of Ridgefield’s new 30-acre Discovery Ridge office park at Pioneer Street and 45th Avenue in Ridgefield, the port said in a news release on Monday.The port and the state wildlife department are discussing an agreement under which the port would finance and build a 38,000 square-foot building on 5 acres to house up to 100 employees.The development would include outdoor storage space for boats and field equipment, and would have 150 parking spaces for employees and the public.The facility also could be used by the state Department of Ecology and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. It would be designed to meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, silver certification standards.Long-term leaseThe estimated cost of a Fish and Wildlife office in Ridgefield is $9.2 million, and financing would likely come from either revenue or general obligation bonds, said Randy Mueller, the port’s director of business development. The port would offer a long-term lease at a rate that initially matches Fish and Wildlife’s present lease rate, and would include a purchase option. The proposal is being reviewed by the state Office of Financial Management.Mueller said he can’t speculate on when state officials will make a decision.The Department of Fish and Wildlife regional headquarters serves Clark County as well as Cowlitz, Lewis, Skamania, Klickitat and Wahkiakum counties.

first_imgRECOPE President Jorge Villaloboshanded in his resignation on Thursday in the latest setback for the protracted expansion. The troubled refinery project on the northern Caribbean coast has sputtered forward since it was announced in 2007, coming under increased scrutiny after Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to Costa Rica early in June.Plans to upgrade the aging refinery were announced when then-President Oscar Arias visited China in 2007 after his administration said it would no longer recognize Taiwan.In 2008, the government ordered environmental impact and feasibility studies for the new refinery, and in 2009, RECOPE and the China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) formed a 50-50 partnership called the Chinese-Costa Rican Reconstruction Corporation (SORESCO) to build and finance the refinery, according to RECOPE.After years of debate over how the project would be financed, the Chinese Development Bank Corporation announced it would put up $900 million toward the project’s estimated $1.5 billion price tag in 2012. The remainder would be split between RECOPE and the Chinese National Petroleum Corporation, according to was not the first to slip on the refinery upgrade. Monica Araya, a former consultant for the Environment Ministry (MINAE), was allegedly fired for speaking out against the project, according to ClimateWire. Opposition lawmakers are also calling for Environment Minister René Castro to step down over the affair, reported Costa Rica’s Radio Monumental.RECOPE has already spent $50 million on the estimated $1.5 billion project, according to argues that the country needs to replace the aging facility to reduce Costa Rica’s energy dependence and domestic gasoline prices. The state-run company claims the project will save the country $2 billion in annual oil costs and increase the facility’s capacity from 25,000 to 60,000 barrels, reported EFE.A statement from RECOPE also claims the project would generate 2,000 construction jobs in Limón and another 3,000 indirectly. The facility would have a full-time staff of 700.An environmental impact study accepted by the National Technical Secretariat of the Environment Ministry (SETENA) in October 2012 found that the project would have “minimal” impact on the surrounding area, according to RECOPE.Environmentalists disagree. They claim the new refinery takes Costa Rica in the wrong direction and will do little to contribute to the country’s goal to become the world’s first carbon-neutral country by 2021. SETENA came under fire from green groups for allegedly ignoring environmental concerns in favor of the project, approving its construction based on RECOPE’s provisional plans and without a required cost-benefit analysis, according to TV’s Channel 7 and said the company has six months to present an alternative plan that includes a new feasibility study and the possibility of incorporating biofuels, reported the daily La Nación.
