A staggering display of new weaponry to mark Chinas 70th anniversary

REUTERS/Thomas Peter Hong Kong protests: Video captures police officer firing pistol at close range The display of new military technologies, including an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching anywhere in the United States, and the defiant rhetoric acted as Xi’s response to external pressures.“There is no force that can shake the foundation of this great nation. No force can stop the Chinese people and Chinese national forging ahead,” Xi said Tuesday morning in a speech delivered in Tiananmen Square in the heart of Beijing, on the spot where Mao stood seven decades before.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below. With counter-rallies taking place in Hong Kong, where a large proportion of the population has been demonstrating against China’s encroaching influence, Xi also sent a message to the citizens there.“Forging ahead, we must remain committed to the strategy of peaceful reunification and ‘One Country, Two Systems.’ We will maintain the long-term prosperity and stability of Hong Kong and Macau,” Xi said, referring to the principle that Hong Kong and Macau have a degree of autonomy from Beijing.Carrie Lam, the chief executive of Hong Kong who has been under fire from protesters for doing Beijing’s bidding, could be seen on the dais overlooking the square during the parade.Xi also pledged to “unite the whole country and continue to strive for the complete unification of our country,” a reference to his desire to bring Taiwan, which Beijing views as a breakaway state, back under mainland control.

BEIJING – The Chinese Communist Party marked the 70th anniversary of its rule Tuesday with a grandiose narrative about its past and its future, with leader Xi Jinping presiding over a massive parade full of new military technology and declaring that “no force” could stop China’s rise.Although the parade was held to mark a domestic event – the triumph of Mao Zedong’s Communists over nationalist forces and the creation of People’s Republic of China in 1949 – it had a clear international message.Related REUTERS/Thomas Peter People watch a live broadcast of president Xi Jinping’s address for the 70th anniversary of the People’s Republic of China in Beijing on Tuesday, Oct. 1, 2019. REUTERS/Thomas Peter Despite Xi’s posture of assurance, his leadership is coming under intense pressure from both inside and outside the country.Protesters in Hong Kong show that they do not share Xi’s “Chinese Dream” of “realizing the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation” and are pushing for democracy and greater autonomy. They have been demonstrating for 17 straight weeks and held multiple rallies around Hong Kong on Tuesday to underscore their different dream for themselves.Separately, China’s protracted trade war with the United States remains bogged down, with few anticipating Vice Premier Liu He’s trip to Washington next week for another round of talks will precipitate a breakthrough.At home, the economy is tangibly slowing, with growth at its lowest level in more than a generation. To bolster his leadership, Xi has repeatedly invoked Mao and exhorted the Chinese people to stay true to the “original mission” of the party.Xi wants to present himself as heir to the “struggle” Mao began and discount the leaders who came between them, analysts say. That includes Deng Xiaoping, the economic visionary responsible for China’s astonishing transformation in the 1980s and 1990s.“He wants to draw a straight line between Mao and himself,” Ni said. “He wants to say that the revolutionary establishment of the People’s Republic of China is now on the threshold of national rejuvenation. It’s a very simplified story.”In 2017, Xi elevated himself to the same level as Mao and Deng in the Chinese Communist pantheon by having his name and the phrase “Xi Jinping Thought” enshrined in the constitution.In recent weeks, Xi has been retracing Mao’s steps and repeatedly invoking the Red Army’s Long March and other elements of Communist Party lore in China.The Xinhua state news agency on Monday published a long paean to Xi’s leadership – it ran to almost 2,500 words in English – that explicitly drew the connection between Mao’s appearance in Tiananmen Square after defeating the Nationalists.“It was there on Oct. 1, 1949, that Mao Zedong announced the birth of New China. Over the seven decades, the socialist country has blazed an extraordinary trail, rising from a ‘poor and blank’ state to a major country on the world stage,” said the article Xinhua published late Monday.Xi, the first top Chinese leader born after 1949, is at the helm in a new era, steering the country through wind and waves to a brighter future,” the agency said. Chinese President Xi Jinping waves from a vehicle as he reviews the troops at a military parade marking the 70th founding anniversary of People’s Republic of China on October 1, 2019. The DF-17, a short-to-medium-range missile that can launch a hypersonic glide vehicle, was also on display. Analysts say the missile appears to be capable of exceeding the speed of sound and penetrating U.S. missile shields, and has a maneuverable re-entry vehicle, so it can shift targets in flight.There were also multiple new drones on display, including the Sharp Sword, an attack drone that can carry missiles or laser-guided bombs and is expected to enter service before the end of the year.The parade was “glitzy” and showed “unity and optimism,” said Adam Ni, a China researcher at Macquarie University in Australia. “But I think underlying that, there are myriad challenges and tensions, both from within China and from external sources, that are creating the condition for potential dramatic change.” But neither those events nor the brutalities of the Mao era, which included a famine resulting from the disastrous Great Leap Forward agricultural policy and the purges and violence of Cultural Revolution, were mentioned Tuesday.Instead, the Communist Party and its People’s Liberation Army put on a staggering display of military firepower. Some 40 percent of the armaments were displayed in public for the first time, according to state media commentary.These included the DF-41, a three-stage, solid-fuel missile that can carry up to 10 independently targetable nuclear warheads and has a range of about 7,500 miles, putting the entire United States in range. Soldiers of People’s Liberation Army (PLA) march in formation during the military parade marking the 70th founding anniversary of People’s Republic of China, on its National Day in Beijing, China October 1, 2019. Xi, who has been increasingly invoking Mao, again called for the revolutionary “struggle” that led to the Communists taking power in 1949 to continue.“We must continue to consolidate and develop the People’s Republic, and continue our struggle to achieve the two centenary goal and to realize the Chinese dream of national rejuvenation,” he said.His words were followed by an extravagant display of military firepower, with tanks rolling down the main avenue into Tiananmen Square – the same route they took 30 years before to crush pro-democracy demonstrations.

International community must unify efforts to assist Libya in overcoming serious governance

Libya’s future prosperity and stability depends on the international community further strengthening and unifying its efforts on behalf of the whole country, as well as Libyans themselves “seizing the window of opportunity” that is before them to ensure peace, the head of the United Nations mission there said today. “We need to act; we need to act together and we need to act now,” said Ghassan Salamé, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General and Head of the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), addressing the Security Council for the first time since he took up the post last month. Reporting on a wide-ranging series of meetings – throughout Libya and to Egypt, Algeria and Italy – Mr. Salamé that all would benefit from a stable, peaceful and reconciled Libya. And yet, despite a nearly two-year-old Political Agreement, Libya itself remains fraught with political divisions, mired in conflict and a stumbling economy. Saying that in his talks with the Libyan people “a clear picture is emerging,” Mr. Salamé noted that insecurity, frustration, political dysfunction and economic despair are among the raft of challenges the country faces. Despite its relative oil wealth, he said, endless cuts in utilities; sporadic violence across the country and political stalemate; were preventing the country from fulfilling it’s potential. “There is obviously a serious problem of governance that can hardly wait to be addressed,” Mr. Salamé stressed, warning that people’s welfare is a fundamental element to in Libya’s future stability and in that regard, unless the economic challenges are addressed – “and soon” – the country’s humanitarian crisis would deepen. In additihe said that irregular migration and the revenue it generates for smuggler networks had proven to be a “direct threat” to stability in parts of Libya, even as hundreds of thousands of migrants who are stuck in the country often “suffer abuses and detention in inhuman conditions.” While he noted some positive steps, including improvements in the security situation in Tripoli and elsewhere, and a marked increase in oil production which allowed the Presidency Council and the Central Bank to work together to deliver a budget, “the key to lasting stability requires addressing the overarching political situation,” namely the status of the two-year-old Libyan political Agreement; the prospect of adopting a new constitution; and the possibility for fresh elections. “The UN stands willing and able to act in the best interests of all Libyans at equal distance from all parties,” Mr. Salamé told the Council, explaining that he very much hoped that with the trust of Libyan partners and the confidence of the regional organizations and concerned Member States, “we are able to strengthen and unify our collective efforts and together restore Libya to its rightful place in the family of nations, one united stable, and prosperous country.” read more

August CV registrations reaffirm consistent growth in 2002

CV registration growth continued to bounce back in August as in July, after June’s decline slowed growth trends across many UK markets. In total, August’s CV registrations were up by 4.5 per cent on the same month in 2001 at 16,263 vehicles, the highest ever August total under the biannual registration plate system. The month now typically accounts for five per cent or less of annual registrations, rather than 16 per cent under the previous system. CV registrations over the first eight months of 2002 were up 3.7 per cent, or 7,092 units, from 193,540 units at August 2001. For the month, heavier vans and pick-ups led growth in the LCV sector. Rigids (excluding those at 7.4t to 7.5t GVW) and three axle artics led truck sector growth. Both buses and coaches saw weaker registration volumes than in August 2001. Van registrations continue to grow strongly, especially at the heavier end of the 2.6-3.5 tonne GVW segment. Many of the heavier pick-ups with a payload of one tonne or more are included in this category, as are a variety of other body type configurations on the basic panel van and chassis-cab format. 4×4 registrations slipped for a third successive month, trimming the year to date growth rate to 11.5 per cent. Over the first half of the year, the bus and coach sector continued to rise over poor 2001 levels. However, recent industry forecasts of 3,900 registrations for the year as a whole point to a softer market in the second half of 2002. YTD CV registrations up 3.7 per cent at 200,632 vehicles Another month of growth in CV registrations has underlined the consistently positive growth trend this year. We are on track to match last year’s total,’ said SMMT chief executive Christopher Macgowan. Truck registration growth perked-up modestly in August after six consecutive months of negative year on year changes. Growth in registrations of three axle artics was unable to overturn a greater volume loss in two axle artics, leaving this sector down for the month. September 2001 saw a significant year on year growth in truck registrations as people registered Euro 2 trucks ahead of the start of Euro 3 compliance. CV growth continues to be focused at the lighter end due to strong new and replacement demands from the services, transport and construction sectors. Certain vehicle types, notably pick ups, are also proving to be a versatile solution for many businesses where their potential for private, leisure and business applications is increasingly popular.Light CV registrations up 6.0 per cent LCV registrations rose by 6.0 per cent to 12,387 units in August versus August 2001 and accounted for 76.2 per cent of all CV registrations for the month.Heavy vans (2.6-3.5t GVW) again showed a consistent and strong growth in registrations in August, rising 10.3 per cent to take 59 per cent of the LCV market up to 3.5t GVW. Within the LCV sector, car type pick-up registrations (1.8-2.6t GVW) grew by 56.8 per cent. Light, car-derived vans (up to 1.8t GVW) saw slight registration growth of 0.5 per cent, but overall year to date are down by 1.5 per cent. Registrations of 4×4 utilities were 17.5 per down for the month. For the first eight months of the year registrations remained up 11.5 per cent, but the sector has lost its recent growth momentum. The heavy van segment continues to be the keystone to overall growth in CV registrations over the first eight months of 2002. Registrations for this segment are up by 7,646 units within a total volume change of 8,526 for all LCVs. New truck registrations up 0.9 per cent August saw some respite to this year’s trend for lower truck registrations than in 2001 mainly due to general year on year growth throughout the rigid sector and a strong showing in the month by three axle artics. Truck registrations fell 4.8 per cent over the first eight months of the year, down 1,659 units to 32,812. This is still strong in the content of market trends over the past five to seven years. Bus and coach registrations down on August 2001 levels, but YTD still positive CV registrations up 4.5 per cent at 16,263 in August Modest growth of 0.9 per cent in truck registrations, but YTD -4.8 per cent Biggest August total under the biannual registration plate system Light CV registrations up 6.0 per cent in August, 5.4 per cent for YTD August CV registrations reaffirm consistent growth in 2002 Bus & coach registrations fall 11.9 per cent, but YTD still up by 8.9 per cent ‘ Bus and coach registrations fell 11.9 per cent in August to 207 units, both bus and coach registrations volumes were down compared to August 2001. Bus and coach registrations over the first eight months were up 8.9 per cent to 2,750 units.DownloadClick to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) read more

NatWest worker told mother all vegans should be punched in the face

However it says it has launched an investigation into the complaint and offered the mother, who is understood to be middle aged and from Bristol, the £400 for the course as well as £185 in compensation. The employee is being subjected to internal disciplinary procedures, it said. “We made the decision to become vegan after my daughter was taken to see a cancer specialist and that was really scary”, she added. “So when someone turns around and says they want to punch vegans in the face, that is not just me they are targeting, it is my children as well. “If we had been talking about my religion he wouldn’t have made a comment like that.” A NatWest spokesperson said: “We are extremely sorry for the way the customer was treated by a member of our staff and apologise for any distress and upset that this behaviour caused.  “These comments were wholly inappropriate and we have commenced disciplinary proceedings. “We will be speaking to the customer at her convenience to apologise and discuss what we can do to rebuild our relationship.  The woman’s application for a loan was turned down because the amount requested was too small, NatWest said, and had nothing to do with her being vegan.  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. “We have also provided feedback to the relevant sections of the bank to ensure that lessons are learnt so that a situation like this never happens again. ” NatWest has apologised after a mother was denied a loan during a phone call and after revealing she was a vegan told that they should all “be punched in the face”.The bank said it had suspended a male call handler, who has worked at one of its southern call centres for between five and six years.It has admitted the outburst took place and was “wholly inappropriate”.  The mother, who was applying for a loan of £400 for a nutrition course, said she was left shocked and upset when the man went on a rant about vegans during her loan application on January 23.She said she and her family had only turned vegan after her daughter suffered a cancer scare. “I told him I was an active vegan and he proceeded to say that all vegans should be punched in the face ,” the woman who wants to remain anonymous told BBC Radio Bristol. “I asked him what he meant by that and he said it was in regards to ‘chalk activism’ which is when activists draw pictures of animals and then write messages like ‘friends not food’ on pavements. “He said vegans were doing it where he lived and that vegans were forcing their beliefs on to him.”  read more

New Sandvik MC430 continuous miner goes to work in Mpumalanga

first_imgSouth Africa’s first MC430 continuous miner was purchased from Sandvik Mining by STA Coal Mining at the Electra Mining Africa 2012 show and is already in operation underground in the Wonderfontein area of Mpumalanga. Ermelo-based STA Coal Mining, an underground contract coal mining company employing more than 600 people, was established in 2006 and currently mines an average of 300,000 t of coal per month.“When we saw the Sandvik MC430 continuous miner on the Sandvik Mining stand, it was clear that this machine would be ideally suited to the tough, hard coal typical of the Mpumalanga coalfields,” Schalk van Wyk, Director at STA Coal Mining, says. “The MC430 has excellent power to weight distribution.” Bob Nkosi, Director Partner at STA Coal Mining, adds: “We have seen that the MC430 cuts at a faster rate than other machines in this category and has several features that will help us maintain our excellent safety statistics. I believe the purchase of this machine from Sandvik Mining heralds the beginning of a solid relationship between our two companies.”Sandvik Mining’s Senior Account Manager, John Pinheiro comments that because it is heavier and more robust than other continuous miners in this category, the MC430 is a more stable machine and as with its 3.3 kV MC470 sister unit (the heaviest machine of its kind on the South African market) with which it shares 70% of its major components, its total cost of ownership is very low. “We’ve established an excellent relationship with STA Coal Mining and as part of the full service contract supplied with the MC430, we have included a product line manager, commissioning team, contract manager and shift technicians on site,” Pinheiro comments. “The new machine was exposed to some very tough conditions when it was requested to cut the floor outside the high wall for a sump and is now cutting underground. The extremely tough conditions experienced with the stone bands and floating stone in the face are really putting the machine through its paces and demonstrating that its design and capabilities are more than equal to the task. The MC430 is attracting a lot of attention from other mining companies and we’re currently fielding a large number of enquiries.”The new Sandvik MC430 is a heavyweight, low to mid-seam continuous miner with extra-high cutting forces for productive cutting. The machine features proportionally controlled sump and shear speeds for optimum cutting performance under varying conditions. It delivers the highest productivity in its class, with the capability to cut during shear up and shear down. It is a silent machine with low noise generation as a result of its extra low cutting speed and hydraulic rear driven twin sprocket conveyor chain, whichalso minimises dust generation during cutting and makes for safer working conditions and longer chain life.For the first time, it is possible for the operators of both the MC470 and MC430 to see the cutter head during the cutting operation. Designed for rapid entry roadway development and coal production, this continuous miner weighs in at 103 t and has a conveying capacity of 40 t per minute. With a ground pressure of 19 N per squared cubic metre, it is ideally suited to operate in underground heights from 4 m down to as low as 1.6 m. The machine is easy to maintain and has 400 kW of installed power on the cutter head. Other features include hydraulically driven tracks with high torque and fail-safe emergency brakes. This makes tramming long distances underground easyby means of a hydraulic power pack which eliminates tramming cables and flirting panels along the way. In addition, realtime visualisation on board the continuous miner includes parts manuals and operator training manuals as well as an optimal cutting sequence video.last_img read more

Eyjafjöll Léruption du volcan islandais aurait stimulé la prolifération du phytoplancton

first_imgEyjafjöll : L’éruption du volcan islandais aurait stimulé la prolifération du phytoplanctonDes chercheurs du National Oceanography Centre de Southampton (NOCS) ont étudié l’effet de l’éruption de l’Eyjafjöll sur la vie biologique du bassin islandais de l’Atlantique Nord. Il semblerait que les aérosols volcaniques, riches en fer, aient stimulé la prolifération du phytoplancton. Dans environ 30 % des océans, les eaux de surface sont riches en nutriments mais pauvres en phytoplancton en raison d’une trop faible concentration en fer. Ces zones HNLC (pour high-nutrient, low-chlorophyll) sont généralement éloignées des côtes, là où ni le vent ni les courants marins ne transportent cet élément (qui provient habituellement des terres). Toutefois, grâce aux dépôts des cendres produites lors des éruptions volcaniques, la fertilisation de certains océans semble possible.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?En effet, des chercheurs du NOCS ont pu observer l’effet de l’éruption de l’Eyjafjöll, le volcan islandais, sur la vie biologique du bassin islandais de l’Atlantique Nord. Ils ont réalisé trois mesures : avant, pendant et après l’éruption du printemps 2010 et ils ont ainsi constaté que dans l’océan, juste sous le panache de cendres, les concentrations maximales de fer durant l’éruption étaient de 10,2 nM (10,2 nanomoles par dm3) contre 0,23 nM avant l’éruption volcanique, rapporte futura-sciences.com.En modélisant la trajectoire des cendres propulsées par le volcan, les scientifiques ont conclut que, dans l’Atlantique nord, jusqu’à 570.000 km² ont pu être ensemencés avec au moins 0,2 nM de fer. Les dépôts de fer provenant des cendres ont donc probablement perturbés la biogéochimie du bassin islandais en en augmentant la production primaire.Le 23 mars 2013 à 16:00 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Allegri switches focus to Napoli

first_imgMassimiliano Allegri has now switched his focus to Juventus’ weekend clash against title rivals Napoli after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Crotone on WednesdayThe Turin side started the match strongly with Alex Sandro opening the scoring after 17 minutes to put Juventus on course for another win.However, a goal from Simeon Tochukwu Nwankwo put Crotone level with the Serie A leaders with the match later ending 1-1 between the sides.While Napoli’s 4-2 over Udinese saw Juventus’ advantage at the top of Serie A cut to four points, Allegri remain content with the gap.Franck Ribery, FiorentinaFiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.“A month-and-a-half ago I’d have been more than happy to go into this head-to-head clash with a four-point advantage.” Allegri told the club website.“We must look to win the match because it would be a big step forward. It will be a great game — hard fought with lots of skill on display. We must get off to a good start.“We didn’t play well today and we struggled a little. It wasn’t easy as we needed to keep hold of the ball without trying to rush things but even in the first half you got the impression we might concede tonight.“We didn’t stay tight enough and we let Crotone get lots of balls into the box and break through down the right.”last_img read more

UPDATE One hurt in Vancouver house fire

first_imgA man suffered minor burns Saturday, apparently while attempting to put out a fire that damaged a house on Northeast 122nd Avenue, according to the Vancouver Fire Department.The fire was reported at 5:06 p.m. at 9906 N.E. 122nd Ave., and smoke was visible from a distance away, said fire Capt.

Ombudsman reports show failures at OCS

first_imgThe state’s Ombudsman’s Office has released reports for two investigations into the Office of Children’s Services – both involving the same caseworker.Listen nowIn the first investigation, a father who lived out of state was trying to gain custody of his daughter. According to the Ombudsman, the father called the caseworker more than 130 times to try to start a complicated interstate placement agreement. During that time, the 8-year-old girl was sexually abused by her foster father. The caseworker was alerted to the possible abuse by multiple people, including the girl’s teacher and her counselor, but it was several months before she investigated and removed the child from the home. The foster father is currently awaiting trial for nine counts of sexual abuse of a minor.In the second case, a baby was taken from her mother at birth about three years ago. The mother told the caseworker to contact the child’s great-grandfather in Arizona so he could take custody of the girl. OCS is legally required to try to place foster children with relatives first. Instead, the girl was placed with a non-relative foster family in Alaska. The caseworker was asked 27 times to contact the great-grandfather but didn’t for more than two years. She told the court twice that she had started the out-of-state placement process even though she hadn’t.Out-going state Ombudsman Linda Lord-Jenkins said the cases show that in the foster care system, failing to complete administrative tasks can have long-term impacts.“In both of these cases relatives were very interested and took very proactive steps to try to get OCS to initiate the studies that could lead to the children being placed with them,” Lord-Jenkins said during a phone interview. “And the caseworker didn’t initiate them and didn’t initiate them for long periods of time despite the obligations and reminders to do so. And that’s very distressing.”Since 2015, there have been eight complaints against this worker. Lord-Jenkins recommended that OCS review all of her cases to see if there are other problems. But OCS Director Christy Lawton said that wouldn’t necessarily help because many of these problems stem from excessively high caseloads.“Which isn’t to say it’s okay for there to be delays or untimely communications,” Lord-Jenkins said. “But that is the reality when caseworkers are carrying twice or three times the recommended average, which has been the case, particularly in our Mat-Su office for the past year.”Additionally, Lawton said the worker is now being overseen by a different supervisor.Lawton said with the high caseloads — more than 3,000 kids are currently in foster care — these types of problems are not unique to this caseworker. She said her employees are doing the best they can.“I think if we reviewed any number of cases, we would find similar problems where everything wasn’t done to the ‘T’ that it should in terms of every single policy, every single phone call returned, every single thing happening timely,” Lawton said. “It’s simply impossible to do that virtually for every single caseworker we have, who has more than the recommended national average of cases. It’s an impossible job.”OCS recently underwent a federal review and the agency will be implementing their recommendations over the next few years to try to improve, Lawton. Additionally, legislation that would increase the number of caseworkers and decrease their case load, House Bill 151, is working its way through the state legislature.Ombudsman Lord-Jenkins said she hopes OCS will start examining how they handle different administrative processes to potentially prevent these problems in the future.“I would like the public not to lambaste these folks who are doing the best they can with what they’ve got,” Lord-Jenkins said. “But to also recognize that these things should not happen.”The state’s Ombudsman’s office can only make recommendations. It cannot force any agency to do anything.last_img read more

Huge N Korea hotel begun in 1980s might open soon

first_img Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Kempinski will manage the hotel, which Wittwer said will open with shops, offices, ballrooms, restaurants and 150 rooms.The enormous hotel has been a source of fascination and ridicule for the outside world and an oversized embarrassment for North Korea’s authoritarian regime.North Korea began building the Ryugyong in the 1980s but stopped when funding ran out in the 1990s. Exterior construction resumed in 2009.Various reports in recent years said the hotel was preparing to finally open. In September, a Beijing-based tour agency was allowed to peek inside and released pictures of the bare concrete lobby.Wittwer said he first saw a picture of the hotel many years ago and thought then that it could eventually make a lot of money.He said Cairo-based Orascom Telecom is funding the construction. The firm launched a mobile network in North Korea in 2008.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Top Stories SEOUL, South Korea (AP) – The 105-story, pyramid-shaped hotel that has stood over North Korea’s capital city like a mountain for more than 20 years just might be on the verge of opening for the first time.Pyongyang’s Ryugyong Hotel will “partially, probably” open in the middle of next year, Reto Wittwer, CEO of international hotel operator Kempinski AG, said Thursday at a forum in Seoul.

Etihad CEO takes a swipe at competition for accepting freekick

first_imgEtihad Airways CEO, James Hogan has taken a swipe at some of the airline’s competitors for accepting subsidies or government hand-outs. “We have been very different,” Hogan said in a speech to the Australian Business Group in Abu Dhabi.“Unlike many of the original flag-carriers, which ran for decades – yes, decades – on Government hand-outs, subsidies and support, our shareholder has been very clear about the return on investment that is expected – and the commercial basis on which we are to operate.”Hogan said that Etihad receives no “free-kicks” because of its commercial principles. “[There are] no fuel subsidies, no cut-price landing charges – everything is expected to run on a commercial basis.”Hogan said that at just six years old, Etihad didn’t suffer from the legacy equipment problems afflicting some of its older competitors, going as far as to say that the carrier’s new operations control centre “would put NASA to shame.” “We’ve also not been burdened with some of the other legacy problems of those competitors. “You only have to look at the challenges being faced by Willie Walsh and his colleagues at British Airways currently to see the cost – both short term financial and long term reputational – of such issues,” he said. Hogan reiterated his expectation that Etihad would break even in 2011, and reported that the airlines contribution to the Abu Dhabi economy had weighed in at $4bn last year.Currently, the airlines fleet of 53 aircraft reaches 63 destinations around the world. Etihad doesn’t yet offer services to South America, however the airline expects to significantly add to its network within the next five years. “The global issues of the last 18 months did slow our pace of growth – but the airline’s performance in the first and second quarter of this year shows the global recovery is well established,” Hogan said. <a href=”http://www.etbtravelnews.global/click/1e4e6/” target=”_blank”><img src=”http://adsvr.travelads.biz/www/delivery/avw.php?zoneid=10&amp;cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE&amp;n=a5c63036″ border=”0″ alt=””></a> Source = e-Travel Blackboard: C.Flast_img read more
