TSX posts small gains amid mixed earnings

Major acquisition activity in the Canadian oilpatch helped push the Toronto stock market modestly higher Wednesday.The S&P/TSX composite index was up 19.1 points to 12,431.18 amid rising copper and gold prices and mixed earnings reports while traders digested a 178-point surge Tuesday. The TSX Venture Exchange rose 2.64 points to 1,302.42.The energy sector led advancers after Celtic Exploration Ltd. (TSX:CLT) received a friendly takeover offer valued at $3.1 billion from Canadian affiliates of U.S. energy giant Exxon Mobil Corp. (NYSE:XOM). The Calgary-based company is mainly focused on natural gas areas in British Columbia and Alberta.Celtic’s shareholders are being offered $24.50 per share and a half-share of a new company, code-named Spinco. Celtic shares surged 45 per cent to $26.28.And Penn West Petroleum Ltd. (TSX:PWT) has agreed in principle to sell $1.3-billion worth of its non-core properties, representing the equivalent of 12,000 barrels per day of production. Details weren’t disclosed and its shares gained 10 cents to $13.76.The Canadian dollar clawed back a good-sized chunk of Tuesday’s slide of almost 3/4 of a US cent, up 0.35 of a cent to 101.82 cents US. The loonie fell 0.7 of a cent Tuesday in the wake of a speech by Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney, which traders interpreted as containing a more dovish tone toward the possibility of hiking rates. The bank makes its next announcement on interest rates next Tuesday.U.S. markets were mixed in the wake of earnings disappointments from IBM and Intel with the Dow Jones industrials down 8.25 points to 13,543.53. The Nasdaq composite index shook off early losses to rise 3.46 points to 3,104.63 and the S&P 500 added 4.39 points to 1,459.31.Traders also took in data that provided a further indication that the housing sector recovery is strengthening.The U.S. Commerce Department said Wednesday that builders broke ground on homes at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 872,000 in September, an increase of 15 per cent from the August level.Applications for building permits, a good sign of future construction, jumped nearly 12 per cent to an annual rate of 894,000, also the highest since July 2008.“The reality is the economic data coming out of the United States has been quite encouraging, such as the housing starts today,” said Norman Raschkowan, North American strategist Mackenzie Financial Corp. “It seems that North America is in reasonably good shape and the positive tone to the North American economy is providing some underlying support to the equity markets.”Intel beat expectations for the third quarter, handing in third-quarter net income of $2.97 billion, or 58 cents per share after the close Tuesday, down from $3.47 billion, or 65 cents per share, a year ago. Excluding one time items, earnings came in at 60 cents, beating estimates of 50 cents.But it added that the usual bounce in sales due to the holiday season is likely to be cut in half this year as consumers shift from PCs to tablets, which don’t use Intel processors and its shares slid 56 cents to $21.79.IBM said its third-quarter earnings remained unchanged from a year ago despite an unexpected charge and a steeper drop in revenue than analysts anticipated. IBM Corp. earned $3.8 billion, or $3.33 per share, in the July-September period.The company delivered the same net income a year ago, but its per-share earnings were 14 cents lower last year because the company had more outstanding stock then. IBM shares dropped $9.24 or 4.38 per cent to $201.76.Bank of America fared better as it narrowly turned a profit of US$340 million in the latest quarter, which works out to a fraction of a penny per share. Financial analysts expected an 11-cent loss. Its shares shed early losses and edged up five cents to US$9.51.In Canada, PotashCorp (TSX:POT) shares dipped 14 cents to $40.96 as it warned that its profit this year will fall short of expectations following delays in reaching contracts with fertilizer buyers in China and India. It says that earnings for the full 2012 financial year will fall below even the lowest previous estimate of $2.80 to $3.20 per share.Oil prices lost early momentum after the U.S. Energy Information Administration reported a bigger than expected rise in crude supplies last week. The November crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange lost 12 cents to US$91.97 a barrel as data showed that crude supplies rose by 2.9 million barrels, against an expected rise of 1.5 million barrels.Other energy sector gainers included Advantage Oil & Gas (TSX:AAV), up 16 cents to C$3.98 while Paramount Resources (TSX:POU) improved by $2.09 to $33.68.The base metals sector led decliners, down 0.9 per cent while December copper was up four cents at US$3.74 a pound. Turquoise Hill Resources (TSX:TRQ) gave back 14 cents to C$7.79 and First Quantum Minerals (TSX:FM) gave back 58 cents to $21.84.Tech stocks were also lower in the wake of the Intel and IBM reports and CGI Group (TSX:GIB.A) declined 31 cents to $26.11.The gold sector was down 0.3 per cent while December gold added $2.80 to US$1,749.10 an ounce. Barrick Gold Corp. (TSX:ABX) faded 34 cents to C$38.87.European bourses headed higher with London’s FTSE 100 index up 0.73 per cent, Frankfurt’s DAX up 0.24 per cent and the Paris CAC 40 advancing 0.49 per cent. read more

Adafruit creates open source iCufflinks for the chic geek

first_imgIt’s safe to say the preferred clothing for geeks is probably jeans and a t-shirt, usually sporting some geeky emblem like those offered on ThinkGeek. But there’s always an occasion where dressing smart is required, making it tough to show any signs of being a geek. If you are an Apple fan who also loves open source, then there’s a set of cufflinks you may want to pick up to solve that problem.Adafruit, a company primarily known for its Arduino products, designed the iCufflinks to look like the pulsing power button on Apple’s MacBooks. The cufflinks hold a tiny battery, an LED, and the the required circuitry. The iCufflinks screw closed and then pulsate for up to 24 hours before a new battery is required.AdChoices广告Adafruit reverse engineered the Mac’s “breathing” LED pattern where all the LEDs vary in brightness in a natural way. They had to reverse engineer the waveform using a MIDIsense board, and a photocell which he ducttaped onto an iMac’s indicator LED.What’s really interesting is that the cufflinks are open source so you can download the circuit board files, the schematics, the CAD files, and the source code. Adafruit encourages other people to reprogram and hack the cufflinks to the pattern of their choice. It seems that you could also switch out the color of the LED and mix it up a bit, but if you want to stay true to the Mac look, you should keep using that white LED.Whether you’re a Mac or a PC person, these cufflinks will show that you’re a chic geek in a sophisticated and subtle way. And don’t worry ladies; Adafruit is working on a necklace version, too. The iCufflinks will run you $128, but that’s the price you pay for looking so slick.Read more at Adafruit, via ZDNetlast_img read more

Jeremie Aliadiere I told Matteo Guendouzi to join Arsenal

first_imgFormer Arsenal forward Jeremie Aliadiere says that he told Matteo Guendouzi to join the club as he was certain that it was the “right place for him”Aliadiere, who was part of the famous 2003/04 Invincibles squad that went the entire Premier League season unbeaten, played alongside Guendouzi at Ligue 2 side Lorient.But the French teenage midfielder swapped the French side for Arsenal in July for a £7m fee.Since then, Guendouzi has established himself as a regular under manager Unai Emery.“I knew when I first saw him that he had something special and that a lot of clubs would be after him,” said Aliadiere, according to ESPN.“I said to him that for his development Arsenal would definitely be the right place for him. You can go to big clubs and never get a chance but Arsenal always give you a chance to their young players. I thought it’d be good for him.”Cristiano Ronaldo, Nemanja Vidic, Manchester UnitedVidic: “Ronaldo is the most professional footballer I’ve seen” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Nemanja Vidic opened up on how a 21-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo’s professionalism left him stunned at Manchester United.The 19-year-old was named as the Arsenal player of the month for August and has kept Uruguay international and fellow newcomer Lucas Torreira on the bench.This is something that not even Aliadiere anticipated.“To be honest yes, I have been surprised. When I saw him joining the club I didn’t expect him to start straight away, I thought it would take him a bit of time to adapt but he’s such a confident lad,” Aliaidiere said.“When I was playing with him at Lorient you could see that, on top of having the talent, he’s just so confident in himself.“It doesn’t matter who you are, what career you’ve had, he’s happy to be whatever and friends with everybody.“He’s just a nice and happy guy to be around.

Boy Scout Bart leads rescue of wayward ducklings

He risks public humiliation for a good cause, dressing as Braveheart for a benefit for The Children’s Center and signing on for this fall’s “Dancing with the Local Stars” to raise money for the Fort Vancouver National TrustHis earnestness has earned him the nickname “Boy Scout Bart,” in the All Politics is Local blog.On Thursday, Boy Scout Bart outdid himself, helping save 10 ducklings after mama duck was hit by a motorist on state Highway 14. And mama duck survived.All together now: Awwww.Hansen, 38, was westbound near the Grand Central shopping complex about 3:30 p.m. Thursday when he spotted the ducks in the right lane. He pulled his minivan to the shoulder of the highway and turned on his hazard lights. The mama waddled into the next lane and was clipped by a motorist.“She was just kind of dazed,” Hansen recalled Friday. A C-Tran bus, driven by Doni Christina, had followed Hansen’s lead and stopped, blocking the right lane to protect the ducklings until they were moved off the highway. An off-duty C-Tran supervisor, Helen Scott, stopped as well, Hansen said, as did another motorist.After the ducklings were moved off the highway, Scott and her niece placed them in the back of Hansen’s minivan. Meanwhile, Hansen and others tried to catch the mama duck. A Washington State Patrol trooper arrived to help, as did David Hughes, an officer with the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife.

Federal Court Strikes Down Gay Marriage Ban in Idaho Nevada

first_imgThe 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals struck down gay marriage bans in Idaho and Nevada on Tuesday. The federal court also has jurisdiction over Alaska, where five same sex couples are suing to overturn the state’s ban on same sex marriage.Download Audio:Joshua Decker is executive director for the American Civil Liberties Union in Alaska. He says the arguments Alaska’s making to defend its ban are the same ones Idaho and Nevada made:“I don’t see how anyone could read today’s opinion by the 9th circuit and see how Alaska could have any leg to stand on to try to defend it’s unconstitutional ban.”A state spokesperson says the Department of Law is reviewing the decision and declined to make someone available for an interview.Caitlin Shortell is an attorney in Anchorage who is representing the Alaskan couples who are plaintiffs in the lawsuit against the state.

10 ways life in Costa Rica has been transformed and you didnt

first_imgRelated posts:4 ways San José excels in urbanism – no, that’s not a typo Why San José’s epic traffic jams are also an opportunity Women of Costa Rica: Let’s open the door for each other already Giving birth through Costa Rica’s public health care system Over the last five years, Costa Rica has been transformed in some small ways we now take for granted. Living here will never be the same again. This list is a tribute to change, innovation, and the men and women in Costa Rica who make it happen.1. Online National RegistryIt is a truth universally acknowledged, that to get anything done in Costa Rica you need a piece of paper with a stamp on it. Before 2010, when the online service Registro Digital was launched, you had to stand in a long line at the National Registry or an attorney would bill you for the privilege. Now you can download a certificate from the comfort of your own desk.2. Highway #27The “Highway of the Sun”is the infrastructure project that everyone loves to hate. True, it did not win any civil engineering prizes and the private financing raised eyebrows. But we forget that a trip to the beach before 2010 was a military operation. Nowadays, city folks are an iPod playlist and five toll booths away from the delights of the Pacific. Brunch in Jacó, anyone?3. 3G Cellphone NetworkBefore 2009, Costa Rica was in a cellphone Jurassic age. The network was fondly called TDMA. Getting your hands on a telephone line was a Herculean task. Multimedia referred to a txt msg that u hd 2 write like this. A smartphone was one with FM radio. Fast-forward through a lot of political blood-letting, the liberalization of the sector and some 3G towers, and here we are in a very different reality. How did we ever survive without WhatsApp?4. SINPE Online Bank TransfersSINPE is the catchy name given to the system, developed by the Central Bank of Costa Rica, that allows you to make a local bank transfer online. It launched a real-time transfer service in 2011. SINPE now processes more than 25,000 transactions a day. This phenomenon significantly reduced our exposure to psychological damage from visiting Costa Rican bank branches.5. National StadiumThe chance of seeing a big-name concert or game in San Joséwas quite low before the new stadium opened in 2010.  San Joséis now one of only a few Latin America stops on world tours of stars such as Paul McCartney, Pearl Jam and Lady Gaga. We should thank the People’s Republic of China for its gesture of selfless international diplomacy.6. Craft BeerIt started with Segua in 2010 and quickly evolved into different tones, flavors and labels. There is even now an annual beer festival. Before the craft beer revolution in Costa Rica, when the bartender asked you which beer you wanted, it was a rhetorical question ironically suggesting that you actually had a choice. A night out with hipsters in San Joséwill never be the same again.7. Apartment TowersGlossy apartment towers started to dot the San Joséskyline only recently and have now become something of a fashion (read: bubble). Among the professional classes of San José, vertical has become the new horizontal. Sabana Park, if you close your eyes a little, is now the next Central Park. Career opportunities opened up exponentially for local elevator technicians.8. Urban Train ServiceAlthough many readers may not be regular users, the restoration of the cross-town rail network during the last five years is a small but important victory in the campaign for public transport in San José. The lack of any safety measures at crossings, thick clouds of diesel and the deafening horn all contribute to a feeling of disruptive innovation.9. WAZE Navigation AppNumber 9 in the list requires no comment. Since 2012, both Ticos and Expats have become devoted worshippers at the temple of Waze, grateful that their prayers were finally answered with a tool to make sense of the road traffic system of this fine country. It is also rumored to be handy on the day of your car license-plate restriction.10. Brazil 2014Forget independence from Spain two hundred years ago. When La Sele made it to the quarterfinals of the Football World Cup, Costa Rica came of age. Yes there was Italy 1990, but we didn’t have Facebook back then, so it was different. During June and July 2014, what Costa Rica lost in economic productivity, it gained several times over in happiness, self-confidence and sales of beer.Theo Mills is an investment banker from London who has lived and worked happily in San José since 2008. For these and other reasons, he predicts San José is on its way to becoming one of the top cities of Latin America. Facebook Commentslast_img read more

LISTEN Kurt Warner Former Cardinals QB

first_imgLISTEN: Kurt Warner, Former Cardinals QB Your browser does not support the audio element. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “Everybody wants to win, but for me it’s about the two best teams playing in a game where either team can be champions and it comes down to great players making those plays,” he said. – / 43 “I don’t think, very few people in that organization expected to be there, obviously, or maybe even thought that they would ever be there and to watch them enjoy that week — to see these players that had played for a number of years with the Cardinals, been here for the first time and really in the playoffs for the first time and then the Super Bowl, I enjoyed so much watching that ride through everybody else’s eyes.”That’s not to say Warner did not enjoy it himself, as he said he knew his career was winding down and having one more shot to participate in all the Super Bowl entails is something he enjoyed and embraced. But to be able to bring the Cardinals — the Arizona Cardinals — to that point was, in itself, an incredible accomplishment. “Here’s a team that hasn’t been in a championship game in 50 years, and we’re here,” Warner says he remembers feeling. “Everything else was gravy. We’re going to try to go out and win and I think we can, but that week of just watching those players and enjoying it and stepping back and understanding how far we had come made it a tremendous week.”center_img Top Stories 0 Comments   Share   Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Four years ago Kurt Warner was preparing to lead the Arizona Cardinals against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLIII in Tampa Bay. For Warner, who was 37 years old at the time, it was his third time playing the NFL’s biggest game. For most of his teammates, though, it was a brand new experience. “It was actually one of the proudest moments of my career,” Warner told Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf Wednesday. “I enjoyed that week so much because I enjoyed watching everybody else. Of course, then the game happened. Without going into too much detail, the Cardinals took the lead late only to watch as the Steelers marched down the field to claim the win. It was a heartbreaking moment for the Cardinals and their fans, leaving a bitter taste in many peoples’ mouths.Looking back on it now, Warner appreciates just how close the Cardinals were to being Super Bowl champions.“You gain perspective as you get older and you come to appreciate moments,” Warner said. “You come to appreciate a moment like playing in the Super Bowl.”Warner, talking about his 64-yard touchdown pass to Larry Fitzgerald that put Arizona ahead 23-20 with 2:37 left is one such moment, as it proved to everyone that yes, the Cardinals belonged in the game against the vaunted Steelers.“It’s basically saying we’re good enough to be world champions,” Warner said. “Now whether it finishes that way after great players making great plays to beat us; but to solidify ourselves with two minutes left in the final game and to be ahead, I think it lets everyone know that hey, this is a championship-caliber team.”But the Cardinals did not win the championship, and Warner understands teams are ultimately judged by whether or not they take the trophy home and earn Super Bowl rings. However, he will not let the team coming up just short ruin what was ultimately an outstanding game and moment in his life.last_img read more
