where Snooty lived since the 1940s said he died because of a “a heartbreaking accident” not as a result of his health The museum did not immediately release details about the incident but said it is currently under investigation At a press conference Sunday afternoon museum officials said they believe a manatee living in the facility which houses Snooty and three others knocked the hatch loose They swam into it and Snooty was unable to get back out of the hatch according to Jeff Rodgers provost and COO of the South Florida Museum "Snooty is very important to this community" Rodgers said "Generations have grown up with that manatee" The incident is still under investigation and Rodgers said there is no indication of any malicious behavior or foul play “We know that our community and Snooty fans around the world share our grief” the museum wrote in a post on Facebook announcing the manatee’s death The museum had just celebrated Snooty’s birthday the day before his death The accident was unrelated to his birthday celebration and was unintentional the museum said Three other manatees undergoing rehab at the facility Randall Baca and Gale are still alive and were not injured during the incident the museum said Some fans of Snooty’s shared their condolences on the museum’s Facebook page “To his memory and every child who grew up going on field trips to the museum” one Facebook user wrote “He was always a pinnacle of the visit there right after our PB & J sandwiches He was not only a mascot he was the first real face-to-face experience with such a majestic animal for so many people” The popular sea creature held the Guinness World Record for the oldest manatee living in captivity In the wild the average lifespan of a manatee is about 40 years old But manatees are capable of living up to 60 years or more Contact us at editors@timecomRoughly six months after Targets massive data breach became public the big-box giants top rival has thrown down the gauntlet in the credit card security wars Sams Club parent Wal-Mart Stores Inc announced that holders of the warehouse clubs co-branded MasterCards will receive new cards containing a security-enhancing chip beginning later this month when the company switches from Discover to MasterCard Customers who have Wal-Mart co-branded credit cards will get their chip-containing cards when the switchover for them occurs later this year MasterCard says "MasterCard has taken a strong stance on the need for the US market to make the transition to chip-enabled credit cards" MasterCards North America president Chris McWilton said in a statement "Sams Club is the first mass retailer to actively implement chip-enabled technology Each credit card has an embedded chip that makes the card more difficult to duplicate which provides enhanced security from fraudulent activity" Wal-Mart said in a statement of its own Although banking tech security experts have known and have been warning people for years that our antiquated mag-stripe technology is seriously under-equipped to protect consumer data from today’s sophisticated cybercriminals the situation only came to a head last year The Target breach affected an estimated 40 million customers who had payment information compromised and as many as 70 million more had personal information like email addresses phone numbers names and home addresses exposed The event triggered a Department of Justice investigation and led to the ouster of Target president and CEO Gregg Steinhafel who said last month he would step down following revelations that Target had brushed off early indications of the problem But despite the risks retailers have been reluctant to undertake the major changes that switching to more secure payment methods would entail Chip-based cards cost eight to 10 times as much as ordinary mag-stripe cards says Brian Riley a senior research director at CEB TowerGroup Although the industry has set a cutoff of next year by when store card readers and the cards themselves to be converted the initiative was off to a slow start so far "What the industry has not seen yet is a major player going out and chaining their cards yet" Riley says Its likely that MasterCard is helping to shoulder the cost in this case he says "You can expect in a deal that brings MasterCard into Wal-Mart certainly some concession on the MasterCard side for who’s going to be paying for this" he says Wal-Mart declined to disclose details of the cost Contact us at editors@timecomWith army trucks bristling with weapons and soldiers boasting that they would catch Boko Haram militant leader Abubakar Shekau alive military forces from Niger and Chad crossed into northeastern Nigeria on Monday to open new fronts in a war against an insurgent group that has wreaked havoc in the region for several years Residents from both Nigeria and Niger described door-rattling booms of fighter-jet missiles and the stutter of artillery fire as troops zeroed in on Boko Haram enclaves near the border Nigerian army spokesman Colonel Sami Usman Kukasheka crowed to BBC World that the joint effort "will definitely see to the end of the insurgency in Nigeria" What he didnt say is that it is unlikely to be anytime soon Analysts estimate that Boko Haram controls some 20000 sq km in Nigerias northeast forming a rough square bordered by Niger Chad and Cameroon Though Boko Haram originates in Nigeria much of its strength comes from its ability to cross borders in pursuit of sanctuary No longer The multipronged effort with troops massing on all three sides appears designed to encircle the group cutting off supply lines and escape routes says J Peter Pham a Nigeria expert and director of the Atlantic Councils Africa Center Its not the first time the four countries have worked together to tackle Boko Haram but this offensive says Pham may prove to be the most effective yet With forces from Niger advancing into Nigeria for the first time from two different locations on the northwestern border and with Chadian and Cameroonian forces holding the frontier to the northeast and southeast Boko Haram fighters have nowhere to go "The noose is tightening around Abubakar Shekau and if one looks at the map it is clear that the ultimate goal is to isolate Boko Haram from" cross-border sanctuaries says Pham With Chadian air support and Cameroonian military backup Nigerias army has already recaptured two dozen towns from Boko Haram a group that gained international notoriety when it kidnapped nearly 300 schoolgirls from a boarding school in Chibok in April Still it is unlikely that Nigeria will be able to fulfill the governments promise that all territory will be liberated before general elections scheduled for March 28 Boko Haram flourishes in the dense jungles of the northeast and its brutal campaign of kidnappings executions and forced conscription ensures local support even if out of duress The Nigerian army doesnt have the troop numbers or the equipment for a full-fledged territorial takeover but the government cannot afford to let foreign forces lead the fight either One of the biggest issues in the upcoming election is security and incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan cant risk looking so weak that he requires outsiders to secure the country "It is politically and psychologically important for the government that Nigerian territory is not seen as being liberated by foreign troops" notes Pham Instead the neighbors will play a supporting role Nigerias military spokesman cites Shekaus pledge of allegiance to the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) on Saturday as proof that the regional fight against the group is already having an impact Liking the pledge to the desperate pleas of a "drowning man" Colonel Kukasheka told the BBC World Service "There is no surprise that he is craving for support from fellow terrorists across the world" Though Shekau is far from drowning there may be some truth to the boast Boko Haram and ISIS have been "circling and courting for a long time" says Pham noting Boko Harams adoption of ISISs black flag and anthem in the fall and ISISs citation of Boko Harams Chibok kidnappings as precedence for its own kidnapping of Yezidi women and girls in Iraq But the fact that both groups have been losing territory in recent weeks means they could use a little bit of a propaganda boost "It was happening already but the propaganda needs of both groups expedited the process" says Pham "For ISIS to acquire a new province so to speak is propaganda that benefits them both" That propaganda could quickly turn into a black eye for ISIS if Boko Haram does end up being wiped out through the efforts of the multinational force ISIS has not yet responded to Shekaus pledge and given the current operation leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi may want to take a wait-and-see approach before he commits to a vulnerable ally But Boko Haram like ISIS has two aspects: a military force that can be defeated and a terrorist reach that is all but impossible to contain On the same day the multinational forces started rolling into Nigeria the provincial

citing national security as the reason for imposing steel and aluminum tariffs on Canada #news #ctvnews #ICYMI #tariffs #nafta #steel #cdnpolihttps://tco/Pb4z3YQLp2 — CTV Northern Ontario (@CTVNorthernNews) May 31 2018 "We are alienating all of our friends and partners at a time when we could really use their support" said Wendy Cutler a former US trade negotiator who is now vice president at the Asia Society Policy Institute Ross told reporters that talks with Canada and Mexico over revising the North American Free Trade Agreement were "taking longer than we had hoped" Talks with Europe had "made some progress" but not enough for additional exemptions he said in a conference call from Paris "We continue to be quite willing and indeed eager to have further discussions" Ross said He said he planned to travel to China on Friday for trade talks between the world’s two biggest economies European officials bracing for the tariffs have threatened to retaliate against US orange juice peanut butter kitchenware clothing and footwear washing machines textiles whiskey motorcycles boats and batteries In terms of the NAFTA talks the tariffs could hinder the negotiations among the North American neighbors Ross said there was "no longer a very precise date when they may be concluded and therefore (Canada and Mexico) were added into the list of those who will bear tariffs" Brazil Argentina and Australia have agreed to limit steel shipments to the US in exchange for being spared the tariffs the Commerce Department said Tariffs will remain on imports from Japan Fears of a global trade war are already weighing on investor confidence and could hinder the global economic upturn European officials argue that tit-for-tat tariffs will hurt growth on both sides of the Atlantic and Canada said before the announcement that it would respond in kind "Canada considers it frankly absurd that we would in any way be considered to be a national security threat to the United States" Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said before the tariffs were announced "The government is absolutely prepared to and will defend Canadian industries and Canadian jobs We will respond appropriately" German Chancellor Angela Merkel stressed her opposition even before the US announcement saying the looming tariffs were incompatible with World Trade Organization rules She said if there were no exemptions "We will respond in an intelligent decisive and joint way" France’s finance minister Bruno Le Maire called the US tariffs "unjustified unjustifiable and dangerous" "This will only lead to the victory of those who want less growth those who don’t think we can develop our economies across the world We think on the contrary that global trade must have rules in a context of multilateralism We are ready to rebuild this multilateralism with our American friends" he said The EU trade commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom said the EU "did everything to avoid this outcome" Noting her discussions with US officials she said "I have argued for the EU and the US to engage in a positive trans-Atlantic trade agenda and for the EU to be fully permanently and unconditionally exempted from these tariffs" Even some Trump allies in Congress said the trade moves were misguided "Tariffs on steel and aluminum imports are a tax hike on Americans and will have damaging consequences for consumers manufacturers and workers" said Sen Orrin Hatch R-Utah White House spokesman Raj Shah told Fox News: "The president’s actions are about protecting American steel American aluminum They’re critical for national security" Tariffs on steel and aluminum imports to the US can help local producers of the metals by making foreign products more expensive But they can increase costs more broadly for US manufacturers that cannot source all their needs locally and have to import the materials That hurts the companies and can lead to more expensive consumer prices economists say "Unilateral responses and threats over trade war will solve nothing of the serious imbalances in world trade Nothing" French President Emmanuel Macron said Wednesday In a clear reference to Trump Macron added: "These solutions might bring symbolic satisfaction in the short term One can think about making voters happy by saying ‘I have a victory I’ll change the rules you’ll see’" But Macron said those "who waged bilateral trade wars saw an increase in prices and an increase in unemployment" Besides the US steel and aluminum tariffs the US is also investigating possible limits on foreign cars in the name of national security Ross criticized the EU for its tough negotiating position But German Economy Minister Peter Altmaier insisted the Europeans were ready to negotiate special trade arrangements notably for liquefied natural gas and industrial goods including cars United Nations: The International Monetary Fund (IMF) reaffirmed on Wednesday that India will be the fastest growing major economy in 2018 with a growth rate of 74 percent that rises to 78 percent in 2019 with medium-term prospects remaining positive The IMF’s Asia and Pacific Regional Economic Outlook report said that India was recovering from the effects of demonetisation and the introduction of the Goods and Services Tax and "the recovery is expected to be underpinned by a rebound from transitory shocks as well as robust private consumption" Medium-term consumer price index inflation "is forecast to remain within but closer to the upper bound of the Reserve Bank of India’s inflation-targeting band of four percent with a plus or minus two percent change the report said However it added a note of caution: "In India given increased inflation pressure monetary policy should maintain a tightening bias" It said the consumer price increase in 2017 was 36 percent and projected it to be five per cent in 2018 and 2019 "The current account deficit in fiscal year 2017-18 is expected to widen somewhat but should remain modest financed by robust foreign direct investment inflows" the report said Representational image PTI After India Bangladesh is projected to be the fastest-growing economy in South Asia with growth rates of seven percent for 2018 and 2019; Sri Lanka is projected to grow at four percent in 2018 and 45 in 2019 and Nepal five percent in 2018 and four percent in next (Pakistan which is grouped with the Middle East is not covered in the Asia report) Overall the report said that Asia continues to be both the fastest-growing region in the world and the main engine of the world’s economy The region contributes more than 60 percent of global growth and three-quarters of this comes from India and China which is expected to grow 66 percent in 2018 and 64 percent in 2019 it said The report said that US President Donald Trump’s fiscal stimulus is expected to support Asia’s exports and investment The Asian region’s growth rate was expected to be 56 percent for 2018 and 2019 However in the medium term the report said that "downside risks dominate" for the region and these include a tightening of global financial conditions a shift toward protectionist policies and an increase in geopolitical tensions Because of these uncertainties the IMF urged the countries in the region to follow conservative policies "aimed at building buffers and increasing resilience" and push ahead with structural reforms "While mobile payments are expanding sharply in such economies as Bangladesh India and the Philippines on average Asia is lagging sub-Saharan Africa" the IMF said adding that the region should take steps to ensure it is able to reap the full benefits of increasing digitalisation in the global economy Lawmakers today began discussing the details of a newly created drug development program at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) NIH Director Francis Collins told a Senate panel that he’s eager to get started—once the program has a budget The Cures Acceleration Network (CAN) was proposed last year by Senator Arlen Specter (D-PA) the champion of biomedical funding who stuffed $104 billion of stimulus money into NIH’s budget last year He also helped insert CAN—without any funding—into the health reform bill Located within the NIH director’s office CAN would help researchers bridge the "valley of death" the gap between a lab discovery and the steps needed to get a drug ready for testing in clinical trials The law authorizes a $500 million budget for CAN which would disburse grants of up to $15 million Collins held an all-day retreat last Thursday to discuss the network with his 27 institute and center directors "There was a lot of enthusiasm" he told a Senate Appropriations Committee subcommittee today "Not that NIH would become a drug development company" he added but instead would forge "partnerships" with the private sector that "are really exciting and unprecedented" The $500 million would be enough to support 20 drug development projects "from soup to nuts" and another 20 projects using compounds that companies had abandoned by "repurposing" them Collins said But it’s not just about money He said the legislation allows the program to be "DARPA-like" comparing it to a Defense Department program known for funding far-out research ideas NIH would have flexibility it doesn’t have now "to manage projects in very forward-looking ways" with a "quick turnaround" First the committee will have to give CAN a budget however The money can’t come out of the $1 billion raise that President Barack Obama has proposed for NIH in 2011 because the agency is facing record-low grant-funding rates next year when the stimulus runs out Collins said Specter a committee member seemed undeterred "We could do a billion" dollars or even $2 billion he suggested But subcommittee chair Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) noting that his subcommittee also funds education programs countered: "You tell me where you’d get the money and who we’re going to take it away from" Collins told ScienceInsider that he would "love to start out with a fully aggressive schedule" for CAN and that waiting a year would be "frustrating" NIH can’t even hire staff members to run the program until Congress approves a budget "Much depends on what these guys and their friends in the House [of Representatives Appropriations Committee] decide" he said who joked that one solution to the discovery was to “fire all the men Madonna said"The total payroll Monterrey billed for these 249 workers amounted to about a third of the
