5 Tips for Building a Video Professional Linkedin Profile

first_imgImage via Shutterstock.References are another great way to validate your skills and expertise. In the Linkedin community, it’s common practice for people to exchange references. That is, if you want one from a colleague, you might want to offer writing one for them first in exchange.Another trick I recommend is to write out references for others to submit (people do this with resumes all the time). It’s acceptable to write out a reference detailing your skills and achievements, then send it to your colleague and ask them to review, change, or touch it up — and submit it on your profile.4. Be Upfront About Your Ideal Projects/JobsImage via Shutterstock.If you’re investing time and resources into your Linkedin profile, it’s probably because you’re looking for something. Whether that’s a new employment opportunity, more freelance work, or a better professional network, it’s important to take inventory of your intentions.If you know exactly what you’d like to accomplish, there’s no reason you shouldn’t put that on your profile to let people know. Linkedin connects employers with employees; if you feed it what you’re looking for, it will work for you.5. Don’t Bury Contact InfoImage via Shutterstock.Not everyone checks Linkedin every day, which is fine. There are a million other things you can do with your time, but as such, getting a message through the website or your app may mean a longer delay in contact than an email or a call. You can and should put your preferred contact info on your profile, preferably in your first summary section with suggested instructions on how to best contact you.Looking for more tips on finding clients and developing your brand?

Linkedin offers a number of opportunities to professional videographers and filmmakers. Find out how to take full advantage of your profile.Cover image via Shutterstock.Linkedin, to many, is perhaps the most useful yet least fun of the major social media networks. It’s useful because it can be a great resource to make connections, grow a professional network, and find new work opportunities. However, it can also be intimidating and not as user-friendly as Facebook or Twitter.However, if you’re looking to maximize your social footprint and expand your personal brand for more and better opportunities, here are five useful tips to help you build out your Linkedin profile.1. Show Your WorkImage via Shutterstock.If you’re a video professional (cinematographer, motion designer, or anything in between), it’s important to show off your work early and often. Linkedin, via recent updates, now offers several ways to do this.I’d recommend you feature a link to your professional portfolio page (whether it’s a sizzle reel on Vimeo or an entire webpage showcasing your work). While this still gets obscured by the “show more” in a browser and the Linkedin App, it will still appear with your personal information (see above).You can also now include links (or even uploads) of work samples under your jobs in the Experience section. These will show up with quality thumbnails (and an option to click through if it’s a link). I would highly recommend featuring samples throughout your Experience (more on why below).2. Highlight Your ExperienceAs with links and samples, your Experience section will be one of the first place employers or clients will look. Be sure to explain your role and job duties for each entry.Pro-Tip for Freelancers: If you freelance full or part time, you can create a Freelance Experience entry that includes up-to-date samples of your most recent freelance work with instructions on how to contact you.3.

Bucks-Celtics, Warriors-Rockets ready for crucial Game 4s

first_imgPanelo: Duterte ‘angry’ with SEA Games hosting hassles “He’s close,” Stevens said.That would seem like a strong hint.A look at Monday’s games:BUCKS AT CELTICSMilwaukee leads 2-1. Game 4, 7 p.m. EDT, TNT.NEED TO KNOW: The Bucks are 3-0 on the road in the playoffs and have averaged 123 points in those games — plus are shooting 51 percent away from home, the best in the league so far in the postseason. Giannis Antetokounmpo was his typical brilliant self in Game 3, finishing with 32 points, 13 rebounds and eight assists. The Celtics and Warriors are going to be looking for more from their star guards in Game 4.Boston’s Kyrie Irving was 8 for 22 from the floor in the Celtics’ Game 3 loss. Golden State’s Stephen Curry — playing with fingers taped together on his left hand following a dislocation of his middle finger — was 7 for 23 in the Warriors’ Game 3 loss, and was almost universally mocked on social media after missing a dunk in the final seconds.“I want to shoot the ball better, and that’s going to happen,” Curry said.A big boost for Boston could come from Marcus Smart, who hasn’t played in a month and has yet to appear in these playoffs after a left oblique tear. Smart practiced on Sunday and has been cleared for contact, though no determination for his Game 4 availability has been officially made.“I’m close,” Smart told reporters Sunday.ADVERTISEMENT INJURY WATCH: Smart being close is obviously a good sign for the Celtics. Milwaukee will still be without Malcolm Brogdon in Game 4, just as it has throughout the entirety of these playoffs, but he’s also getting close to a return.KEEP AN EYE ON: Irving. He got to the foul line 12 times in Game 3, which was a plus for Boston, but he’s still shooting just 30% (12 for 40) in his last two games. He’s played in three consecutive postseason losses only once, and the Celtics need it to stay that way.PRESSURE IS ON: Perhaps oddly, the Bucks. Even though they have the likely MVP, the No. 1 overall seed in the playoffs and the home-court edge regardless of Monday’s result, a best-of-three against Irving, Al Horford, Jayson Tatum and Stevens — particularly if Smart comes back — should be avoided if at all possible.WARRIORS AT ROCKETS SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte Golden State leads 2-1. Game 4, 9:30 p.m. EDT, TNT.NEED TO KNOW: The Warriors expect Curry to bounce back after struggling in Game 3. “He’s just really competitive and he gets locked in and he gets a little big angry and he comes out with a lot of focus and a lot of fight,” coach Steve Kerr said.INJURY WATCH: Houston reserve Danuel House, who missed Saturday’s game, is questionable for Game 4 because of a toe injury. For the Warriors, Kerr said Saturday that Damian Jones, who tore a pectoral muscle in the beginning of December, might be cleared for contact practices next week and could return if the Warriors advance. Kerr added that center DeMarcus Cousins, who injured a quadriceps muscle in the first round, has made marked progress and could also play this postseason. “He’s come a pretty long way,” Kerr said.KEEP AN EYE ON: The first quarter. The Warriors outscored Houston 57-39 combined in the first quarters of Games 1 and 2 to take a 2-0 lead in the series. The Rockets fared better in Saturday’s win and they trailed by a single point at the end of a first quarter where Eric Gordon scored seven points and Clint Capela added six.PRESSURE IS ON: James Harden. Last year’s MVP has led the Rockets in scoring in each game of the series, capped by Saturday’s 41-point performance, but will need to keep it up if the Rockets hope to even the series before heading back to California for Game 5. Harden has been plagued by criticism in the playoffs in the past few years as Houston has been unable to get past the Warriors, losing to them in the postseason in three of the last four seasons.

Pro Kabaddi 2019 HIGHLIGHTS, UP Yoddha vs Dabang Delhi in Noida: UP Beat Delhi 50-33

first_imgTheir defence, like last season, has been stellar so far. While skipper Nitesh Kumar has had a good campaign, the star on the defensive side has been Left Corner Sumit, who is currently on pace to finish the campaign as one of the season’s leading tackle point scorers. With the defence and offence working in tandem, UP Yoddha are one of the most in-form and balanced outfits in the league, and Dabang Delhi KC will have their work cut out on Saturday.Dabang Delhi succumbed to just their third defeat of the season against Bengal Warriors in their previous outing and, while results elsewhere have since confirmed their spot in the semi-final, they need to win aganst UP Yoddha to keep a hold on their top spot. Raider Naveen Kumar extended his unprecedented run of Super 10s to 18 and another one against UP Yoddha will see him break the record for the most Super 10s in a campaign (19), held jointly by him and Pardeep Narwal.Their defence had a rare off night against Bengal Warriors as they could muster just six tackle points – their lowest this season – and veterans Joginder Narwal and Ravinder Pahal will be aiming to put in a better showing against UP Yoddha. Coach Krishan Kumar Hooda could opt to test his bench strength against a formidable foe and give opportunities to the likes of Meraj Sheykh and Saeid Ghaffari, who have seen their playing time diminish over the past few matches. UP Yoddha are aiming to become one of only two teams, alongside Bengal Warriors, to qualify beyond the league stage in the past three campaigns. Their recent winning form has come at the back of the starry performance from raider Shrikant Jadhav. He has solidified his spot as the lead raider with consistent performances throughout the campaign and the past eight matches have seen him score 76 raid points at an average of 9.5 per game with three Super 10s. He and rookie Surender Gill have carried the bulk of the raiding load and the duo has performed exceedingly well for UP Yoddha..@UpYoddha are a team on a mission as they go into #UPvDEL in search of a win to cement their position in the playoffs.Here’s what you need to know about tonight’s fixture: https://t.co/vYBy4Sbh1l⌛️: 7 PM📺: Star Sports & Hotstar#IsseToughKuchNahi #VIVOProKabaddi pic.twitter.com/viEfXjWaBt— ProKabaddi (@ProKabaddi) October 5, 2019last_img read more

Modi urges people to follow Guru Gobind Singhs path

first_imgAnandpur Sahib (Pb), Nov 25 (PTI) In this holy town, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today advocated the need for imbibing the teachings of the 10th Sikh Guru Gobind Singh who preached unity, peace and harmony.Modi paid obeisance at Gurdawara Keshgarh Sahib in Anandpur Sahib as part of 350th Parkash Utsav of tenth Guru Gobind Singh here.Sporting the traditional kesri headgear, Modi emphasized the need for inspiring coming generations to learn messages and sacrifices of the great Guru Gobind Singh.Modi began his address in chaste Punjabi by welcoming the gathering on this occasion with the holy chant of “Waheguru Ji ka Khalsa, Waheguru ji ki Fateh.” He concluded his speech with the same chant.He said the Centre has decided to celebrate the 350th Parkash Utsav of Guru Gobind Singh throughout the country in order to spread his message nook and corner.”In coming days, there shall be a huge gathering at Patna Sahib (one of the revered seats of Sikh religion) to mark 350th Parkash Utsav. For this purpose, the government has also decided to make rail service arrangement for those who wish to go to Patna Sahib,” he said.He talked about the sacrifices and messages of Guru Gobind Singh, saying that the tenth Guru was committed for the unity of all.He said the Guru launched protest against inequality, discrimination in the society.”On one side there was cruelty, crime, atrocities in the society on Guru Gobinds path. But Guru Gobind Singh chose the path of bravery. He tried to imbibe bravery among people. He gave the message of fighting against cruelty with bravery,” said Modi.advertisement”We should follow this Gurus mantra and also new generation should be inspired to take lessons from his messages,” he said.”There is no dearth of those who believe in division but the power of those who believe in unity is much more,” he said.Recalling his old days when he stayed in Punjab as BJPs in-charge of party affairs in the state, Modi said, “It is my fortune that I got an opportunity to work in Punjab for several years and because of it, I used to get opportunity on regular basis to pay obeisance at Keshgarh Sahib in Anandpur.”He added, “It was also my fortune that when the then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee came here, I also got an opportunity to be part of the gathering here. After becoming Prime Minister, today I got an opportunity to pay obeisance at the sacred land for the first time.”This is the land where for 28 years, Guru Gobind Singh tried to raise a society by virtue of his sacrifice, bravery and austerity,” the Prime Minister said.”I always say that I have blood relation with this holy land. It is because I was born in Gujarat, worked here (Punjab) and one of the Panj Pyaras (five beloved ones) of Guru Gobind Singh belonged to Gujarat. “Therefore, unity among people of the country was the priorty of Guru Gobind Singh. Panj Pyaras (the chosen five devotees of the Sikh God) were also from all directions of the country and one of them was from Gujarat. Therefore I feel that I have blood relation with this land,” he said.On this occasion, Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal honoured him by presenting robe of honour, replica of the Golden Temple and a sword.

Indias ties with Israel should not be at cost of Palestinian

first_imgcause: Abbas aideFrom Harinder MishraRamallah, May 9 (PTI) India has the right to build relations with Israel but it should not come at the “expense” of New Delhis firm support for the Palestinian cause, a close aide of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said today.Ahead of Abbas visit to India next week, Dr Majdi Khaldi, a senior Palestinian official, described Indias relations with Palestine as “historic” and “steady” and asserted that the Palestinians want to strengthen their ties with India and seek support for their “struggle”.”India has the right to have relations with Israel and any other country but what we care about is that it should not be at the expense of its relations with Palestine and its principled stand supporting the Palestinian cause that we should have our state within the 1967 borders with east Jerusalem as its capital,” Khaldi, a senior diplomatic adviser of Abbas, told PTI in an interview.Responding to a question about Prime Minister Narendra Modi only visiting Israel later this year, skipping Palestine, Khaldi said, “it is his decision”.”It is up to the Indian Prime Minister to decide when and where to visit. It is his decision. The President (Abbas) was invited by the Prime Minister (Modi) to visit India which he is doing,” the aide to the Palestinian president said.Several MoUs will be signed between India and Palestine during Abbas visit to New Delhi from May 14 to 17 with special emphasis on cooperation in the fields of health, agriculture, sports and youth affairs, the official said.advertisement”We are looking forward to the exchange between our president and the Indian president and also with Prime Minister Modi. The president met Prime Minister Modi in New York and Paris. This is an important visit which will help relations to flourish in many areas and also renew relations in several others”, the senior diplomatic advisor said.”We are interested in strengthening our relations with India and to continue getting its political support for our cause and this is the most important thing for us, irrespective of Indias relations with Israel. The most important thing is that it should not be at the expense of our relations, the good relations between India and Palestine,” he asserted.Khaldi stressed that the “excellent” relations between Palestine and India were based on shared values and would grow irrespective of “who governs India”.”Palestine and India have historic relations that do not stand only on bilateral visits. We have excellent relations with all parties, no matter who governs India. The reason is the deep relations between the two people and also the establishment in the two countries,” Khaldi said.Despite concerns raised in the past over Indias vote at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC), which some in the Israeli media interpreted as a change in Indias thinking under the new government, the Palestinian Authority seems to have accepted New Delhis position.”We see India supporting Palestine in most of the international forums. Some of the votes have been explained to us as technical votes. We see the political support of India as steady. This is how we feel,” Khaldi emphasised.Appreciating Indias assistance in capacity building in Palestine and support to the local population through several projects, the Palestinian official said that the relations between the two sides was “going in a new direction”.Palestinians now seek New Delhis help in acquiring new technologies, he said.”We have developed bilateral committees lately so that we can renew most of the agreements to strengthen the relations between our two countries and some of these are going to improve economic exchange between Palestine and India”, the official said.”We found that the area of technologies is one area where we can cooperate, which is a new area. You know India is very successful in this field and we have already developed some capacity in this field. India is helping us in developing a technology park. We call it Palestine-India techno park,” Khaldi added.”We are going to expand cooperation between the businessmen and the two governments. This project is going to trigger much wider relations between the two nations,” he asserted.Abbas will be visiting India following his recent meetings in Cairo, Amman and with US President Donald Trump in Washington. He is likely to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow from where he would fly out to New Delhi.”The president is going to talk to the (Indian) prime minister about the latest developments from his visit to the United States and the importance of the engagement of President Trump in this conflict which is very vital,” Khaldi said.advertisement”He (Trump) is convinced that he can do something different, something important to solve this conflict and can help reach an ultimate deal and we are going to be fully cooperative,” he said.The Palestinian president will also brief the Indian political leadership on different regional developments, especially the crisis in Syria, Yemen, Libya and certain other parts of the region.Abbas forthcoming visit would be his fifth to New Delhi in the last 12 years and the third state visit underlining the importance of bilateral relations, Khaldi said.

World Cup 2018: Russian couple divorce over Ronaldo-Messi debate

first_imgCrisitano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi divides people around the world, with many a friendship coming to end over the ‘greatness’ of one over the other football champion.However one couple in Russia went as far as to get divorced over the debate – Ronaldo or Messi!’Argumento I Fakti’ a newspaper in Russia reported that a man got into an argument with his wife after Messi’s Argentina defeated Nigeria.2018 FIFA WORLD CUP: FULL COVERAGEThe football-mad couple, named only as ‘Arsen’ and ‘Lyudmila’ by the newspaper, started fighting after the husband celebrated Argentina’s victory. He decided to pack his things and leave when his wife kept insisting that Ronaldo is better.The husband later speaking to the press recollected that he and his wife had first met in a bar while watching the 2002 World Cup and had fallen in love talking about football.READ – Messi gets face-saving Kazan mural to match Ronaldo’s”Since the beginning of the World Cup, she mocked Messi and said he couldn’t even score a penalty against Iceland. I could not contain myself and told her what I thought about the vain Ronaldo, the Portuguese national team and all the clubs she likes,” he said.”Then I took my belongings and left her forever,” he added.He informed the media that this was not the first time they have gotten into an argument, but next morning he decided that the marriage was over and he filed for divorce at the courts of the city of Chelyabinsk in the Urals.advertisementBut in the round of 16, both Ronaldo and Messi crashed out of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. That too on the same day.SEE PHOTOS – Mbappe, Cavani send Messi and Ronaldo homeMessi’s Argentina lost 4-3 to France and hours later Ronaldo’s Portugal went down 2-1 to Uruguay, leaving the tournament without its two best known and most loved players.Given their ages – Messi is 31 and Ronaldo 33 – this could be the last the world sees of the pair, that has monopolised the world player of the year award for the last 10 years, on the biggest stage of all.READ – Messi, Ronaldo dreams dashed as Argentina, Portugal bow outIf Barcelona forward Messi, who previously quit the Argentina team in 2016 before changing his mind, does not continue until the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, he will end his career without a major trophy for his country.After winning a gold medal with Argentina in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, many expected the little forward to take his country to glory in a World Cup or at least the Copa America.Yet despite his brilliance – and some talented teammates — Argentina have remained without such a trophy — losing to Germany in the 2010 World Cup quarter-finals and suffering the same fate in the 2014 final in Rio.While Real Madrid’s Ronaldo will also be bitterly disappointed to be heading home earlier than planned from Russia, he at least has the consolation of having won his country’s first ever European Championship, two years ago in France.(With inputs from Reuters)last_img read more

Let India beat Pakistan and ensure they don’t advance in World Cup: Sunil Gavaskar

first_imgFormer captain Sunil Gavaskar is of the opinion that India should look to play Pakistan and beat them in the upcoming ICC World Cup match on June 16 rather than boycott the arch-rivals in the tournament.Gavaskar’s suggestion is purely based on logic than emotions which are currently running high in the country following the Pulwama terror attacks in Jammu and Kashmir in which 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawans lost their lives on February 14.Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed claimed responsibility for the ghastly attack on the CRPF bus which was blown up by a Jaish suicide bomber.Speaking to India Today’s Rajdeep Sardesai, Gavaskar, who was part of India’s first World Cup-winning team in 1983, provided a different solution from the ones that are being suggested by the likes of Sourav Ganguly and Harbhajan Singh, who feel boycotting Pakistan in the tournament is the best way forward.Gavaskar said not playing bilateral cricket hurts Pakistan more but giving away two points in a tournament like the World Cup would end up hurting India eventually.”If India decide not to play Pakistan in the World Cup, who wins? Pakistan will get two points. We have beaten them every time in World Cups. We can play them and beat them and make sure they don’t reach the semi-finals. Not playing bilateral series vs Pakistan hurts them.”I know India are strong enough to qualify by not playing Pakistan. Not playing bilaterally hurts them. But it’s a World Cup, it’s two points…,” Gavaskar said.advertisementThe Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) reportedly wants the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to write a letter to the International Cricket Council (ICC) asking the world governing body to ban Pakistan from the upcoming World Cup in May-June.Gavaskar though feels, this is a step which India can look to take but it won’t result in anything eventually.”It will not happen because the other countries have to agree. India can certainly go ahead but that is not likely to happen.”The right forum is at the United Nations. I am not too sure the International Cricket Conference is the right forum to bring this up. We are all down with the tragedy. I am not too sure it will work because the other countries might say it’s an internal issue between two countries so please don’t involve us,” Gavaskar said.Also Read | Sunil Gavaskar to Imran Khan: You are my friend.

After taking a few visits elsewhere, the former four-star recruit decided to decommit and join Ohio State.In his three years with the Buckeyes, Jones saw most of his snaps come on special teams. The team had far too many linebackers on the depth chart, result in him to see limited time on defense.Fortunately for Jones, he’ll have a better opportunity to shine on defense for Maryland.last_img read more

David Warner to undergo minor elbow surgery on January 22

first_imgDavid Warner to undergo minor elbow surgery on January 22David Warner scored 61 not out, 63 and 19 in his last three innings at the Bangladesh Premier League but will now return to Melbourne to get his injured elbow assessed.advertisement India Today Web Desk MelbourneJanuary 21, 2019UPDATED: January 21, 2019 13:26 IST David Warner complained of elbow pain while playing in the Bangladesh Premier League. (Reuters file Photo)HIGHLIGHTSDavid Warner will get his elbow assessed in Melbourne on TuesdayWarner had been playing in the Bangladesh Premier LeagueSteve Smith also underwent an elbow surgery a few days agoDavid Warner is expected to undergo a minor surgery on his injured elbow after he returns home from a stint in the Bangladesh Premier League on Tuesday. Warner had complained of an elbow pain but played two more matches for his BPL team Sylhet Sixers but is now set to be back home to attend to his elbow pain.Warner, who is currently serving the suspension period for his involvement in the ball-tampering scandal, will get an assessment done on his elbow in Melbourne on Tuesday and it is likely that he will get a surgery done on the problematic elbow on the same day.A few days ago, Warner’s suspended partner Steve Smith also underwent an elbow surgery but the former’s injury is not expected to be as serious as Smith’s.For Steve Smith, however, the lay off is expected to be longer. Smith will be wearing an arm brace for six weeks before continuing his rehabilitation. The length of the lay off threatens to disrupt Smith’s preparations for the World Cup in England later this year.Both Warner and Smith carried small niggles into the Bangladesh Premier League and then reporting pain. They returned home within a week of each other.The pair’s 12-month bans for their involvement in the Cape Town ball-tampering incident ends on March 28 and there had been some hope they could return in a one-day series against Pakistan in the UAE.While Smith would be in a race against the clock to play in that series and the early stages of the Indian Premier League, Warner will likely be fit in time to be available for selection.advertisementWarner scored 61 not out, 63 and 19 in his last three innings at the tournament.Australia are expected to play five one-day internationals against Pakistan in the UAE, with the final two matches of that series believed to be after the bans on Smith and Warner have expired.

Port of Rotterdam Launches Three Lay-By Berths (The …

first_imgzoom The Port of Rotterdam Authority has put into use three public lay-by berths for feeder and short sea ships on the Maasvlakte. This will save shipping companies valuable fuel and time in particular.Two berths are at dolphins in the continuation of the Rhenus terminal in the Europahaven (port number 8235). The third location is at the dolphins at a short distance from the GDF Suez quay in the Beerkanaal (port number 8025). The investments were in the region of €4 million.With throughput of almost 12 million standard containers (TEU), Rotterdam is Europe’s largest container port. According to the Port Vision 2030, the percentage of units shipped in and out by small coastal container vessels will increase from 30% in 2010 to 40% in 2030. Most of these ships call at several container terminals and sometimes have to wait in the meantime. If they can do this nearby and free of charge, that saves fuel and time.

Drewry Ship Operating Costs Rise for the 2nd Year in a Row

first_imgzoomIllustration. Image Courtesy: Pixabay under CC0 Creative Commons license Average vessel operating costs rose for the second year in a row following two years of marked declines, but cost inflation is set to accelerate on higher insurance premiums, shipping consultancy Drewry said.Typical ship operating costs accelerated moderately in 2018 as the uncertain recovery in freight markets across most cargo sectors gained momentum.Average daily operating cost across the 46 different ship types and sizes covered in the report rose 1.1% in 2018, succeeding the previous year’s rise of 0.7%, according to Drewry. This followed a period in which opex spending contracted over two consecutive years by almost 9% in 2015-16.Earlier years witnessed sharp reductions in opex as the depressed state of shipping markets forced operators to slash costs as a means for survival. But as freight markets started to recover in 2017 so the pressure to reduce expenditure lifted.“This trend continued into 2018, with a modest acceleration in cost inflation,” Martin Dixon, Drewry’s director of research products, said.The latest assessments include vessels in the container, chemical, dry bulk, oil tanker, LNG, LPG, general cargo, roro and reefer sectors, as well as the recently introduced car carriers segment. 2018 represented the first time in seven years that all vessel sectors recorded rising average operating costs, Drewry said.However, continued overcapacity in certain sectors and an uncertain trade outlook “will still make market conditions challenging for most shipowners over the coming years,” therefore, Drewry expects the pressure on costs to continue.“Financial losses can only be sustained for so long and given higher claims in related sectors as well as the withdrawal of some insurance providers from the maritime space, it is clear that a market correction is underway which will lead to higher premiums, particularly over the near-term,” concluded Dixon.Given the more benign outlook for the remaining cost heads, overall vessel operating costs are expected to rise below the level of general price inflation over the next few years and so represent cost stagnation in real terms.last_img read more

Feds have options to cut risk for Trans Mountain pipeline investors Carr

first_imgOTTAWA – Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr says Canada is considering several ways to reduce the financial risk for Kinder Morgan investors spooked by the uncertainty plaguing the planned Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.Carr says the government is still examining its options, but won’t commit to a course of action before Sunday, when Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is to meet with the premiers of British Columbia and Alberta.Ottawa’s options include buying a stake in the pipeline to both provide confidence the pipeline will be built and cash to compensate for nervous investors.B.C. Premier John Horgan’s persistent threat to challenge the federal government’s jurisdiction in court has investors fearful that the project will be postponed.Pipeline builder Kinder Morgan has halted all non-essential spending on the project until it gets assurances from Ottawa that the issues will be resolved.The federal government has until May 31 to respond.Trudeau has put a lot of political eggs in the Trans Mountain basket, risking political capital among climate-change activists in search of middle ground that allows for pipeline construction along with environmental safeguards.last_img read more

CANADIAN ACTOR SIMU LIU IS IN DEMAND AFTER YEARS STRUGGLING TO MAKE

first_imgBecoming an actor on a popular new Canadian TV show or a stunt double on a Fall Out Boy music video was not at all on Simu Liu’s radar when he was working as an accountant in Toronto. Until he was laid off – and his world opened up.“I remember feeling oddly free in that moment. I was without a job, but I thought I can do whatever I want. This is my one chance to really just try something. I owe it to myself to really give it a shot,” said Liu, HBA’11.This past year, Liu’s acting career has gained momentum, with the success of his roles on CBC’s Kim’s Convenience and NBC’s Taken. Despite his respect for Toronto’s strong film industry, his ultimate goal is to move to Hollywood. On a recent trip there, he met with agents and casting directors in L.A., including doctor-turned actor Ken Jeong (best known for his role in The Hangover) about a possible buddy cop movie that Liu hopes to write. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement Advertisement Advertisement Twitter “I started talking to him (Jeong) on Twitter. When I got to L.A., he said come by the set and we can hang out more. So I ended up spending a lot of time with him. His advice was that you can’t wait. I joked that we should do a buddy cop movie for both of us and he said, ‘If you write it, I’ll be in it,” Liu said.While there is no formal training to show actors how to network, Liu credits his networking and soft skills courses at Ivey Business School with giving him the tools he needed to push forward in his career and not be afraid to reach out.“The hard part is to think of it (your career) as a start-up and think of yourself as an entrepreneur rather than an artist that waits for the phone to ring for opportunities,” he said.“I spent so many years struggling as an actor. Then suddenly, I’m in demand. The only thing actors want to do is work. It was amazing – tiring, brutal and amazing,” he said of his recent schedule shooting two television shows at once.In a long list of acting credentials Liu also includes stunt man, writer, director and producer – all skills that round out his already full resume.Following his layoff from his accounting firm, Liu started out by looking at TV and film opportunities on Craigslist. In amongst some of the more unsavory ads was a posting for the movie Pacific Rim by director Guillermo del Toro. The movie was being shot in Toronto and they were looking for extras. The role paid just $10 dollars an hour, but it was the stepping stone Liu needed to start his acting career. As soon as he arrived on set he knew he was home.“I ended up falling in love with everything I saw. People have careers devoted to the movies. It wasn’t just the actors – the assistant director, the gaffers working the lights – it was everything. It was such a big production.”While Ivey attracted him to Western, Liu credits one of his first experiences as a frosh with giving him his first taste of fame and one he would reflect on often as he launched his acting career.

Ban Kimoon urges climate change breakthrough in Bali after dire report released

Launching the fourth assessment report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which brings together hundreds of scientific experts, Mr. Ban said that slowing and even reversing the effects of climate change “is the defining challenge of our age.”He also stressed the report makes clear that “concerted and sustained action now can still avoid some of the most catastrophic scenarios” in the IPCC forecasts.“We can transform a necessity into virtue,” he said. “We can pursue new and improved ways to produce, consume and discard. We can promote environmentally friendly industries that spur development and job creation even as they reduce emissions. We can usher in a new era of global partnership, one that helps lift all boats on the rising tide of climate-friendly development.”For this to happen, the Secretary-General said the world’s industrialized countries must form a “grand bargain” with developing nations, which are the most vulnerable to the impact of climate change.The report details how reduced rainfall in much of Africa is likely to aggravate existing water shortages and slash crop yields, rising sea levels are set to inundate small island States and melting glaciers could trigger major floods in South Asia and South America.More heat waves and periods of heavy rainfall are deemed very likely to occur, tropical cyclones are predicted to become more intense and a dramatic decrease in the polar ice caps is also expected as air and ocean temperatures keep rising. In the worst case scenario, nearly a third of all of plant and animal species could be at risk of extinction.It also explains that industry, agriculture and infrastructure can become far more energy-efficient, water can be more effectively conserved and used and countries can become less dependent on fossil fuels and other non-renewable sources of energy.IPCC Chairman Rajendra Pachauri said governments have “a wide variety of policies and instruments” available to create incentives to mitigate behaviour – especially in the area of carbon emissions.“We need a new ethic by which every human being realizes the importance of the challenge we are facing and starts to take action through changes in lifestyle and attitude.”The report, released in Valencia, Spain, is the synthesis of three IPCC reports issued earlier this year that examined the scientific basis of climate change, the impact it is having and ways to mitigate and adapt to the phenomenon.It is expected to form the basis of discussions in Bali next month when world leaders gather under the auspices of the UN to try to agree to a successor pact to the Kyoto Protocol on greenhouse gas emissions, which is due to expire by 2012.Mr. Ban told reporters after today’s launch that “the breakthrough needed in Bali is an agreement to launch for negotiations for a comprehensive climate change deal that all nations can embrace – developed and developing countries alike. Scientists have now done their work and I call on political leaders to do theirs and agree not only to launch these negotiations but also to conclude them by 2009.”The report states that “neither adaptation nor mitigation alone can avoid all climate change impacts. However, they can complement each other and together can significantly reduce the risks of climate change.”The Secretary-General, who is in Valencia at the end of an international trip that has taken him to both Antarctica and the Amazon rainforest, said he had witnessed first-hand the perils posed by climate change.“I can tell you with assurance that global, sweeping, concerted action is needed now. There is no time to waste.”UN Environment Programme (UNEP) Director Achim Steiner agreed, saying “we now have the compelling blueprint for action and in many ways the price tag for failure – from increasing acidification of the oceans to the likely extinctions of economically important biodiversity.”Michel Jarraud, Secretary-General of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), called for more detailed and continuing observation of the impact of climate change to help individuals, businesses and civil society make informed decisions about how best to adapt to meet their own circumstances. 17 November 2007Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has challenged the world’s policymakers to start devising a comprehensive deal for tackling climate change at next month’s summit in Bali, Indonesia, after a United Nations report released today found that global warming is unequivocal and could cause irreversible damage to the planet. read more

Surging food prices could lead to nutritional crisis for Central Americans –

The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is warning of a potential nutritional crisis in Central America, where the prices of wheat and corn have nearly doubled in the past year, bad weather has pushed the price of beans to unprecedented levels.The agency notes that the surge has meant that the actual calorie intake of an average meal in rural El Salvador, for example, is today roughly 60 per cent of what it was in May 2006.“At this stage it is still premature to provide figures, but we fear a deepening nutritional crisis among the poorest segments of the population, those already food and nutritionally insecure,” says WFP El Salvador Country Director Carlo Scaramella, who is coordinating a study of the impact of recent rising prices in the region.“At the same time, what we are seeing is the emergence of a new group of nutritionally and food-insecure people among the poorest strata of the population,” he added.In response to the growing crisis, WFP has increased local purchases and is urgently asking international donors for more contributions, to make up for its sharp decline in purchasing power. The agency has also set up an internal task force at its Rome headquarters and is reviewing ways to better target its assistance.At the global level, WFP plans to launch a series of consultations with leading experts in the field of hunger and food security, and has called for a special meeting with key non-governmental organization (NGO) partners to tackle the issue. 26 February 2008The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is warning of a potential nutritional crisis in Central America, where the prices of wheat and corn have nearly doubled in the past year, bad weather has pushed the price of beans to unprecedented levels. read more
