Profits lower at Cogeco Communications while parent company logs gain

first_imgMONTREAL – Cogeco Communications Inc. says its earnings fell by about 15 per cent in the third quarter, primarily due to asset impairment and financial charges.The Montreal-based company said after the markets closed Wednesday that its quarterly profit was $64.5 million, down from $76.2 million in the same period of fiscal 2017.Cogeco said that was primarily due to increases in depreciation and financial costs, which were partly offset by a decrease of income taxes and other factors.Revenues increased 12.7 per cent to $637.1 million, driven primarily by 44 per cent growth in the U.S. broadband sector. Revenues held stable in the Canadian Internet services sector.Earnings per share in the quarter were $1.24, compared with $1.55 a year ago.The company also announced a quarterly dividend of $0.475 per share.Cogeco, the parent company, said it posted a gain of $70.1 million in the quarter, down from $82.1 million in the same quarter last year while revenues grew by about 11 per cent to $668.9 million.Cogeco announced last month that its subsidiary, Cogeco Connexion, had acquired 10 spectrum licenses of 2500 megahertz in non-metropolitan areas of Ontario, from Kian Telecom, for $8 million.In May, Cogeco Connexion successfully bid for 23 spectrum licenses of 2500 and 2300 megahertz primarily in its Ontario and Quebec wireline footprints for $24.3 million.The cost of these licenses will be recorded in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018.“Overall we are satisfied with our performance for the third quarter of fiscal 2018,” said Cogeco Communications president and CEO Louis Audet.“Results at Cogeco Connexion have remained stable compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2017, despite the fact that our Canadian broadband services subsidiary implemented a new advanced customer management system and had consequently temporarily reduced its marketing and sales activities.”Audet also said the positive results in the company’s American broadband services are in line with expectations following the acquisition of the MetroCast cable systems in January.“We are now ready to launch TiVo and Internet speed upgrades to these customers,” he said.Companies in this story: (TSX:CCA)last_img read more

US keeps air pollution standard established under Obama

BILLINGS, Mont. — U.S. environmental regulators are leaving intact an air quality standard for power plant pollution that can worsen asthma in children, despite calls by health advocates for a tougher standard.The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced Tuesday it will retain the standard for sulfur dioxide pollution established in 2010 under President Barack Obama.Sulfur dioxide comes from burning coal to produce electricity and from other industrial sources.The American Lung Association and other groups had urged EPA to lower the amount of pollution allowed. They say the existing standard puts millions of people at risk of asthma attacks.The American Petroleum Institute argued that the rules were overly stringent and wanted them relaxed.Sulfur dioxide emissions dropped sharply in recent decades due to pollution restrictions and declining use of coal.The Associated Press read more

Lack of infrastructure jobs drives rural youth to cities says UN rural

In one of his first interviews since taking on the leadership of the UN’s International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), Gilbert Houngbo said he wants people to see life in rural areas as a choice and not a necessity.“Food security and nutrition are essential, but we have to go beyond that and really aim at the fight against poverty and look at agriculture as a decent income-generating activity,” noted Mr. Houngbo, who was previously the Deputy Director-General of the International Labour Organization (ILO).Without adequate investment in the world’s most vulnerable communities, he continued, there will be increased instability and conflict and people will find it harder to bounce back from shocks, giving them more reasons to flee rural areas.“We need to work on those hardships so that young people can be happy in a rural setting, instead of looking to go to the capital or move outside their country,” he said.Mr. Houngbo – whose senior positions include serving as Prime Minister of Togo – understands first-hand the challenges of living in the countryside, according to IFAD. Mr. Houngbo grew up in rural Togo, and pledged to work through IFAD to aid young people living in rural poverty. “When I was a youngster of eight years old, I had to walk four kilometres every morning to go and get water for the house, and a few years later I had to walk 20 kilometres every day to get to high school,” he said. “It is unacceptable that kids today have to go through the same thing 40 to 50 years later.”Mr. Houngbo said his priority is to ensure that IFAD continues to have the resources to invest in rural areas so that they become “places of prosperity and hope, where people can build decent lives and not be compelled to migrate.” read more

Ecole Polytechnique The passage of time must not render us indifferent

By Jack LightstonePresident, Brock UniversityThere are momentous, public tragic events that occur in our lifetimes for which we vividly remember where we were when they happened, or when we learned of them.We retain such memories because, at the very moment these events are taking place, it is self-evident that the tragedy has or will have a historic impact on many people’s perspectives and subsequent actions.For my generation, two such events were the assassination of John F. Kennedy and the destruction of the twin towers of the World Trade Centre. But a third happened 25 years ago this week – Marc Lépine’s heinous slaughter of 14 women at Montreal’s Ecole Polytechnique, on Dec. 6, 1989.At the time I was an associate vice-president at Concordia University, less than five kilometres from the scene of what would become known as the Montreal Massacre.Over at Ecole Polytechnique, as the late afternoon sun was setting, the unbelievable began to unfold. Men and women emerged from buildings, running into the twilight and into a frantic street scene.Police and emergency personnel had established a secure perimeter while, inside, their colleagues swept through corridors, labs and lecture halls, striving to stop Lépine, to rescue the injured and, more tragically, to retrieve the dead.Minute by minute, the crowd outside was being augmented by the families and friends of students and staff, who, upon hearing the live news bulletins, rushed to the scene to learn about the fate of those dear to them.Anyone who escaped or was extricated from the building was quickly besieged by journalists, and asked to recount on live broadcasts what had been happening inside. Thus, it was known very early on that Lépine had systematically separated men and women, so as to target women.We would later learn that it was women he blamed for his own failings and inadequacies. He felt women were taking places in society that rightfully belonged to men. In his mind, that was an injustice that was the cause of his own unhappiness and lack of success. What better symbol for him than women in engineering programs – to him, a man’s profession.What a shock this barbarism was to our late-20th-century Canadian sensibilities. Had we not made so much progress in women assuming their rightful equality in our society?For Montrealers in particular, how was it possible that such attitudes, such hatred, such violence towards women would be so horrifically expressed in our urbane, progressive city? Was Montreal not the epitome of Quebec’s Quiet Revolution, which in the 1960s had rejected – indeed, ousted – the traditional and patriarchal values of the “old Quebec?”In the days and weeks following Lépine’s atrocity on our senses and on our moral compass , the soul-searching began, along with heightened political and social action.This Dec. 6, a quarter century after that cruel day at Ecole Polytechnique, millions of people will stop to reflect on that event, and on the critical meaning of the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.Here at Brock, a special screening the award-winning film Polytechnique was held on Dec 4, followed by a group discussion. The Brock event was organized by the Centre for Women’s and Gender Studies, A Safer Brock, the Student Justice Centre, OPIRG and the Office of Human Rights and Equity Services. I salute them all for organizing this.It is of paramount importance that the passage of time does not render our culture indifferent to the possibilities that can lurk within an unenlightened society’s dark corners.Major social and attitudinal change is a long-term project. Universities tend, rightfully, to be places where norms are examined and questioned. And so it is no accident that when Marc Lepine wanted to vent his hatred for “feminists”, he could think no better place to go than an institution of higher learning and research.The lesson: Do not forget, and never stop working toward the goals and objectives.No person must ever encounter gender-based violence or other barriers to roles where they can become the leaders that our world so desperately needs. read more

The Seattle Seahawks Youth Could Portend a Dynasty Yes Really

It wasn’t long after the Seattle Seahawks put the finishing touches on their 43-8 Super Bowl rout of the Denver Broncos that media people began throwing around the d-word, dynasty, as they peered into the franchise’s future.Of course, this happens with just about every Super Bowl winner; squint hard enough, and even the most obvious one-and-done champ looks like a perennial powerhouse. (In some ways, talk of that nature gets even more far-fetched with each passing season — we haven’t seen a repeat Super Bowl winner since the 2004 New England Patriots.) But in Seattle’s case, it might not be totally implausible to expect an elevated probability of a full-blown dynasty.Historically, teams that have won a title find themselves surprisingly well-positioned to win more of them. Since the 1970 NFL-AFL merger, 55.9 percent of Super Bowl winners won at least one more championship within the following 10 seasons. Even within that club, though, Seattle is starting from a better spot than most. Its schedule-adjusted pythagorean winning percentage during the 2013 regular season ranked sixth among all Super Bowl champions since the merger, trailing only the 1985 Chicago Bears, 1991 Washington Redskins, 1975 Pittsburgh Steelers, 1996 Green Bay Packers and 1973 Miami Dolphins.More importantly, the Seattle’s core is incredibly young for an NFL champion. Weighted by the Approximate Value produced by each player on the roster, the Seahawks’ average age (26.0) was the second-youngest in the league a season ago and ranked third-youngest among Super Bowl winners since the merger. The two champs who had lower average ages? The 1974 Steelers and 1981 San Francisco 49ers, each of whom would go on to win three more Super Bowls apiece in their next decade of play. (Seattle also ranks as slightly younger than the 1992 Dallas Cowboys, who won two additional rings in a dynastic run.)Looking at all Super Bowl winners from 1970 to 2003 (for which we have a “next decade” worth of data), there’s a relationship between the team’s AV-weighted age in its championship season and its chances of winning additional titles.Among the aforementioned 55.9 percent of all Super Bowl champions who won another before a decade was up, a disproportionate number are clustered among the youngest teams on the list. Eleven of the 12 youngest champions in our 1970-2003 group went on to win at least one more Super Bowl in the following decade, while only four of the 12 oldest champs would go on to win another title.Usually, talk of dynasty potential among freshly christened champions isn’t very predictive. But because of their youth, these Seahawks are in a situation where the odds of winning another championship are particularly heightened. read more

Ohio State wrestling makes history at Hawkeyes expense

The last time the Ohio State wrestling team beat Iowa in 1966, Woody Hayes was still the Buckeyes’ head football coach. Archie Griffin had yet to play a down for OSU, let alone win two Heisman Trophies. The United States was in the middle of the Vietnam War under President Lyndon B. Johnson. And everyone, including the coaching staff, involved with the OSU wrestling team had yet to live in a world that saw their school win against Iowa. That all changed Friday night though, after the No. 7 Buckeyes toppled No. 2 Iowa, 21-9, at St. John Arena. Besides being the team’s first win over the Hawkeyes in 46 seasons, the win was also a look into the future of Buckeye wrestling. With seven freshmen or redshirt freshmen starters, OSU is arguably one of the youngest teams in not only the Big Ten, but in Division I wrestling. Freshmen Johnni Dijulius, Hunter Stieber, Cam Tessari, Derek Garcia, Andrew Campolattano and redshirt freshmen Logan Stieber and Josh Demas won a combined 25 state championships in high school. Logan Stieber, Hunter Stieber, Tessari, Garcia and Campolattano are all four-time state champions. Out of those seven, six were able to defeat their Iowa counterpart, and those six victories accounted for all but one of the wins OSU scored against the Hawkeyes. Logan Stieber, Hunter Stieber and Garcia knocked off the No. 2-, No. 3- and No. 6-ranked wrestlers, respectively, in their weight classes by a combined score of 17-7. Just two weeks ago, some were questioning if the youth of the Buckeyes was catching up to them after dropping their first two matches of the season on the road to ranked competition against No. 8 Nebraska and No. 4 Minnesota. Most of those sentiments, though, were put to rest against an Iowa squad that had yet to lose a Big Ten duel this year. Besides being a memorable moment for the program as a whole, Garcia said he thinks finally beating the Hawkeyes proves the legitimacy of their team. “We went out and we didn’t wrestle our best against Nebraska and Minnesota and I think we kind of had a little downer there,” Garcia said. “But we showed everybody right now that we are real.” Hunter Stieber, who defeated a two-time All-American in Iowa’s Montell Marion, agreed that this was a big statement for a young Ohio State team with aspirations of winning it all. “It feels amazing. It’s awesome. Everyone wrestled extremely well … it was amazing, everyone came together, worked hard all week, worked hard all year,” Hunter Stieber said. “We had a few bad dual meets, but I mean, we’re still in the hunt. We can compete and make a run at the national title this year as a team.” OSU coach Tom Ryan said he knew what he was getting himself into when he left Hofstra to lead the Buckeyes. “We came here for this,” Ryan said. “We knew this was called the sleeping giant. It’s far from over. I know the men on the other side of the mat. Those guys were teammates, and I know how they react when they get punched in the nose. They do not fall down, they punch back.” OSU still has three duels left in the Big Ten, including a road trip to defending national champion Penn State next Sunday, Jan. 29, before the National Duals, Big Ten Championships and NCAA Championships begin. Ryan said the battle is on. “Ohio State is officially in a fist fight,” he said. “I’m very proud of this group of guys.” read more

Celebrating 100 years of Dubliners

first_imgTODAY MARKS THE 100th anniversary of James Joyce’s Dubliners, his accessible masterpiece that has left an indelible mark on Irish and world literature.The collection of 15 short stories was published on 15 June 1914 after an nine-year debacle with a number of publishers, who wanted to remove some of the more controversial elements – including the entire Two Gallants story.Joyce held out though and eventually got the contract he wanted for his “chapter of the moral history of my country”.The publisher, despite his agreement, didn’t have much faith in the book’s promise because it “is about Ireland”.Grant Richards was wrong though and, although it initially lay in the background behind Ulysses and Finnegan’s Wake, it has obtained an equal footing.To mark the centenary, independent Irish publisher Tramp Press decided to ‘cover’ the book.Writer and editor Thomas Morris told Publishers Weekly that he came upon the idea after hearing a busker on Grafton Street playing the Jeff Buckley version of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah.“Would writers ‘cover’ a story from Dubliners?” he mused.He got 15 authors to take up the challenge and the complete anthology, Dubliners 100, was ready to go in just 10 months.The list of writers who signed up is impressive and includes John Boyne (of The Boy in the Striped Pajamas fame), Donal Ryan (A Spinning Heart) and Paul Murray (Skippy Dies).IMPAC-nominated Peter Murphy took up the daunting task of writing a new version of the final story, The Dead, the most praised of the collection.The IFI is also honouring the occasion with a 35mm screenings of John Huston’s 1987 adaptation of The Dead today and tomorrow. The are two showings, one at 4pm today and another at 6.30pm tomorrow.The film is set during the annual dinner party of the elderly Morkan sisters on the Feast of the Epiphany in 1904.According to the organisers, the film “lovingly recreates the middle-class characters of Joyce’s Dublin before reaching a powerful conclusion that reminds us that love is always intertwined with loss”.“John Huston’s subtle direction and Angelica Huston and Donal McCann’s delicately modulated performances perfectly capture the social atmosphere and emotional nuances of Joyce’s original text.”Order Dubliners 100 here. Read: People are losing the rag over three Irish books included in a “Best British Novels” listMore: James Joyce’s love of rugby and the tale of the team who only lost once in the NFL; this week’s best sportswritingExtract: Colm McCann on Dublin, Ulysses and friendshiplast_img read more

Gerald Eve engages staff with pension saving through bonus scheme and financial

first_imgProperty consultancy Gerald Eve, which employs more than 430 staff across nine UK offices, utilises a range of communication channels and topical and lifestage-focused financial education support to engage its employees with pension saving.Gerald Eve has a high pensions take-up rate, with 93% of eligible employees saving into the group self-invested personal pension (Sipp) scheme offered by the organisation through a pensions salary sacrifice arrangement.The organisation also runs a scheme that enables staff to waive some of their bonus directly into their pension. Employees are reminded of the scheme in communications about their annual salary review. Helen Foley, HR manager at Gerald Eve, says: “We had an increase in take-up [of this scheme] this year compared to previous years, so it’s clearly something that people are starting to use more and think about more.”Staff have access to an online workplace savings platform, provided by Hargreaves Lansdown, which enables them to take an active role in their pension investments should they choose to. The platform also provides access to other savings vehicles, such as a stocks and shares individual savings account (Isa) and a cash Isa.Gerald Eve ensures its employees are informed about their pension options from day one; new starters receive informational material from both the employer and pension provider upon joining the firm, and each September Gerald Eve’s graduate intake participates in a financial education session to engage them with saving from the very beginning of their tenure with the organisation.One-to-one financial education sessions, run by Hargreaves Lansdown, are available to staff on site around twice a year, in addition to group sessions. As a follow-on from the graduate sessions, the organisation has also offered financial education support to staff that addresses the factors that may be most important to them through different life stages, whether that be preparing to have a family or approaching retirement. Employees who are beginning to think about retirement also have the opportunity to take part in off-site seminars, provided by Close Brothers.Foley says: “We’re lucky in that most of our managers are very transparent and able to have those open and honest conversations about long-term planning. That’s important in terms of succession planning and planning for the business, and being able to support [staff] in the right way in terms of planning for retirement.”Information about the workplace pension scheme is available on the intranet, in addition to communications in emails and the organisation’s HR newsletter. Gerald Eve makes use of targeted emails to inform employees about changes to pensions legislation that are relevant to them, which are designed to complement communications sent out by its pension provider. The organisation gave staff the opportunity to attend a session focusing on the annual and lifetime allowance reductions, run by its pension provider, and plans to offer another session on this topic later this year to increase employees’ awareness of the changes.“We find that it’s about doing what makes sense at the right time,” explains Foley. “With all the changes in pension legislation, it makes sense to have people come in for face-to-face sessions, but we have also sent out emails targeted at different groups that would probably be more affected by the changes.”last_img read more

New Mexico Official Demands 25M from Air Force following Dispute over Wind

first_imgNew Mexico Land Commissioner Aubrey Dunn is asking the Air Force to pay the state $25 million to compensate it for the loss of lease revenue from a wind farm project in central New Mexico after DOD said over half of the planned turbines would interfere with the Air Force’s use of a military training route. In a letter sent Tuesday to Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson, Dunn emphasized that money generated from state trust lands support New Mexico’s schools and hospitals, reports the Albuquerque Journal. “I believe that the military should not be uniquely and unduly burdening state trust lands by effectively prohibiting the investment-backed activities of state trust land leases unless it is willing to pay appropriate compensation,” wrote Dunn, who is running for the U.S. Senate this year.An Air Force spokeswoman said the service tries to not to restrict the activities of private industry. “Our primary focus is the Air Force mission,” said Ann Stefanik. “When possible, we work with industry and government partners to allow for development that makes sense for all parties.” A spokesman for wind developer Avangrid Renewables said the company would continue discussions with DOD. “We are going to continue to work with the DOD clearinghouse to help balance the protection of national security with responsible and reasonable siting of our turbines to benefit all parties,” said Paul Copleman.The dispute echoes one three years ago between the Pentagon and SunZia over its plans to build an extra-high-voltage transmission line through parts of White Sands Missile Range in southern New Mexico.Photo by Michael Zamora Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more
