(Laura Kraegel, KUCB)The cable vessel Ile de Sein is on its way to the North Slope, where soon it’ll lay hundreds of miles of fiber optic cable for the Quintillion high-speed internet project.Before shipping out this weekend, though, the vessel stopped in Unalaska to host a group of Quintillion’s investors, industry partners, and other supporters — including Governor Bill Walker.It was Walker’s first trip to Unalaska in two years. He said he came to get a closer look at one of the ships bringing better internet to rural Alaska.“Alaska is changing,” said Walker. “Alaska is changing because the Arctic is opening up. So to be able to have this opportunity for Alaska — the connectivity with the rest of the world with the high-speed internet this is going to provide — it’s pretty exciting.”Walker wasn’t the only high-profile guest. The Ile de Sein also welcomed Alaska Senator Donny Olson, D-Golovin, as well as representatives from the Arctic Slope Regional Corporation, the Calista Corporation and ConocoPhillips.Quintillion hasn’t confirmed the names of its customers in the telecom industry, but CEO Elizabeth Pierce said representatives from OTZ Telephone Cooperative, TelAlaska, AT&T, and Verizon also toured the ship.While Quintillion still is focused on finishing the first phase of the cable system this summer, Pierce said her team already is considering where to expand next.They haven’t made any decisions yet, but she said they’re looking at future Alaska landing sites beyond the original six in Nome, Kotzebue, Wainwright, Point Hope, Barrow, and Prudhoe Bay.“We’ve gotten the message loud and clear, and we’ll see what we can do to make Dutch Harbor a future landing,” Pierce said.For now, though, the Ile de Sein is traveling to Wainwright. The ship will arrive toward the end of the week and start laying 1,500 tons of fiber optic cable along the North Slope. Meanwhile, its sister ship — the Ile de Brehat — has finished the landing site at Nome and is now heading north through the Bering Strait.Pierce said the Quintillion project is still on schedule to deliver high-speed internet in the first quarter of 2017.Share this story:last_img read more

(Photo by Claire Stremple/KHNS)Two months ago, the owner of The Skagway News announced he would give the paper away to a publisher with strong journalism chops and a knack for business.After reviewing hundreds of responses from interested candidates, Larry Persily found two women from Chugiak who fit the bill.Audio Playerhttps://media.ktoo.org/2020/01/17SkagwayNews.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Persily bought The Skagway News last year and has been managing the paper remotely from Anchorage, where he teaches journalism. It’s a biweekly paper with a circulation of about 500.When the paper’s editor quit in November, Persily decided to find a new owner who could live in town year-round and edit the paper.He knew filling that position would be difficult.“Skagway News, like just about every other paper in the country, is having tough times with money,” Persily said. “I thought, ‘This is going to be tough to sell, and the money is not that important to me. I’d rather find the right person.’ So I figured, let’s try something different.”Persily announced he would give the newspaper away to someone who could keep it running strong.National media quickly picked up the story. It even caught the attention of late night TV host Stephen Colbert.Hundreds of emails flooded Persily’s inbox. The letters of interest came from all over the world. Some were from reporters who had been laid off from newspapers. Others came from adventurers seeking a new start in Alaska.Persily felt it was important to find someone who understood small-town life and how to cover it in a newspaper.“Their ability to adapt and become part of a community was probably more important than how many years of hard journalism experience they had,” Persily said.Persily chose Gretchen Wehmhoff and Melinda Munson of Chugiak from the 200 applicants. They learned about the opportunity through an article in the Anchorage Daily News. Munson managed to convince Wehmhoff to apply with her.They are both teachers for the Anchorage School District with backgrounds in journalism. They have written for publications in the Chugiak area and started their own web magazine called Alaska Family Fun.Wehmhoff said they are excited to share their passion for journalism with Skagway.“We also are real excited about bringing the community more into the paper. I’ve been a journalism teacher for a long time, and Melinda has a degree in journalism,” Wehmhoff said. “We’d love to work with some of the youth.”Wehmhoff and Munson visited Skagway in December and are busy looking for a place to live in the small community. Persily will guide them through the transition.Although the paper was advertised as free to a good owner, Persily said the new team will have to shell out some dough to seal the deal.“I’m selling it for $20, because I figure I should at least get a pizza out of this,” Persily said.Munson and Wehmhoff will officially take over the paper March 3.Share this story:last_img read more

(Photo by Rashah McChesney/KTOO)Audio Playerhttps://media.ktoo.org/2020/02/11rally-web.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Hundreds of people rallied around the state Tuesday to restore the Alaska Marine Highway System’s regional ferry service.The fleet has been largely idle since the only mainliner in service broke down last month.In Juneau, elected state and tribal leaders told 200 people gathered around the Capitol steps that for smaller coastal communities, regular ferry connections are a matter of survival.“People who kind of have no idea, who come from a place of privilege, say, ‘Well, that’s your choice (to live in coastal communities).’ Well, they don’t know what it’s like to be born in a community and to be able to say for 10,000 years, ‘My forefathers were born in this area,’” said Richard Peterson, president of the Central Council of the Tlingit and Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska. “We have no reason that we need to move.”Sen. Jesse Kiehl, D-Juneau, told the lunchtime crowd that Alaska villages deserve a higher standard of living.“The store shelves shouldn’t be empty in Alaska communities,” Kiehl said. “They shouldn’t be empty when we’ve got docks, and we’ve got vessels, and we’ve got skilled people to run ’em!”Kobe Nall and Keely Nall hold up a sign and a homemade model of a state ferry at Ketchikan’s rally on Tuesday. They say they often take state ferries to visit family and friends in Petersburg and Juneau. (Photo by Eric Stone/KRBD)In Ketchikan, about 60 people turned out. Some of them were state ferry workers left high-and-dry by the shutdown.Wade McClennan worked on the Columbia, which has been tied up since last fall. In the meantime, he’s not drawing a paycheck.“There’s a lot of uncertainties, because we depend on our benefits,” he told KRBD. “And when you’re the breadwinner of your family, the uncertainty (like) there is right now just causes a lot of anxiety.”Meanwhile in Kodiak, about 10 people gathered near that city’s ferry dock. Many were retirees who came by ferry decades ago.Robyn Cassidy is a retired bookkeeper who first stepped off the ferry when she was 13.“This is infrastructure. This isn’t something special,” she told KMXT. “We don’t have any other highway, and it needs to be funded in full and quickly.”Archie Dunbar, left, and Luck Dunbar pose with their signs at the Haines rally on Tuesday. (Photo by Claire Stremple/KHNS)In downtown Haines, more than 200 people gathered to show their support for the system.Luck Dunbar and his son Archie held a sign with a hand-drawn portrait of President Donald Trump in his characteristic red baseball cap. They had a new take on Trump’s campaign slogan.“We’re just trying to get through to the people that kind of run the show, you know?” the elder Dunbar told KHNS. “It’s kind of something off the MAGA hat, but it says ‘Make Our Ferries Great Again.’ MOFGA!”Throngs of ferry supporters turned out in the fishing town of Petersburg on Tuesday. (Photo by Orin Pierson/KFSK)Out in the Aleutian Islands, there are just four ferry trips scheduled for the entire year.Jeff Hancock is with the International Longshore and Warehouse Union and helped organize the rally that brought out about 40 people. He said it takes a half a week to travel by ferry from the road system to Unalaska.“But we have people, including myself, who have been stuck in Anchorage for multiple weeks waiting for flights … and it becomes a realistic option to think about getting on a three-and-a-half day ferry trip if you know you’re going to be able to get home,” Hancock told KUCB.Limited regional ferry service is scheduled to resume next month. But under a draft summer schedule released last month, some coastal communities could go without any service through the end of the year.Gov. Mike Dunleavy has requested $12 million for supplemental ferry funding. But state transportation officials told lawmakers this month that the money is needed for the existing bare bones schedule and would not expand service.Reporting for this story was contributed by KRBD’s Eric Stone in Ketchikan; KMXT’s Kavitha George in Kodiak; KHNS’s Claire Stremple in Haines; and KUCB’s Hope McKenney in Unalaska.Pelican, Tenakee Springs mayors speak out against prospect of summer without ferriesShare this story:last_img read more

first_imgUncategorizedThe Final Four: Best Music for the Vertically ChallengedBy Raquel Peña – August 5, 2014919ShareEmailFacebookTwitterPinterestReddItIn the August issue of Los Angeles magazine, we list 86 of our favorite things, from outdoor movies to huevos rancheros. It’s never easy to whittle down the city’s incredible offerings to the #1 resources that make our annual “Best of” lists—this spring more than two dozen reporters canvased the city in search of the very finest available—but some contests were especially heated. Like Best Music Venue for the Vertically Challenged.Here are four of the businesses we considered, plus what makes them so great. So, which one is tops? Cast your vote in the comments section below, then pick up a copy of the issue on newsstands now to see which business we crowned the Best of L.A.The TroubadourThe small West Hollywood club has a low stage and a great security staff, which means it’s easy make your way through the crowd. You can go where you please without beefed up enforcers approving your every move.The WilternAlthough the spacious Koreatown venue gets high marks for its tiered platforms, it can be tough to find a great vantage point when everyone on the platform is on equal footing.El ReyDepending on the show, the Miracle Mile concert hub can be a great spot for us shorties—or a difficult one. At seated shows getting close to the stage tends to be easy. At general admission events, security will probably block your path to the stage. And don’t even think about sitting on the railings or standing on the lined up chairs.The Echo/EchoplexWhether you’re at the Echo (smaller and upstairs) or the Echoplex (larger and downstairs) you can probably find a spot with a decent angle to see the performance. Seating is available on the sides, placing you slightly higher than the crowd. And the farther back you go, the better you can see the stage.

first_imgHome Sport GAA Mountrath CS see off Heywood to reach South-Leinster final SportGAA Community Twitter Pinterest Mountrath Community School Mountrath CS 3-8 Heywood CS 0-9Top Oil South Leinster School’s Senior ‘C’ Semi FinalMountrath Community School will contest the South-Leinster ‘C’ football championship final after seeing off fellow Laois side Heywood Community School this afternoon.This was a game of high quality given its division as there were 15 past and current Laois minor footballers and hurlers on show between the teams.There wasn’t a whole lot separating the sides either but it was Mountrath’s ability to get goals that proved the difference in the end.Indeed the lead swapped hands throughout the opening quarter with the sides level at the end of it.Ciaran Byrne, Jonathan Rafter and Mark O’Connell all raised white flags for Heywood while a Sean O’Flynn brace either side of a Seth Burns point levelled matters for Mountrath.And it was the victors who then took what proved to be a decisive lead a minute later. Danny Brennan was adjudged to have fouled Sean Greene inside the area and Jack Priestley sent keeper Ruairi Nevin the wrong way from the spot.Nevin made a great save to deny Sean O’Flynn seconds later and although Seth Burns and Danny Flanagan extended Mountrath’s lead, Heywood came roaring back.Mark O’Connell showed deadly accuracy to slot three tricky frees while towering midfielder Cathal Doyle also slotted over one off his left foot to narrow the margin to one – 1-5 to 0-7.But Mountrath grabbed another goal just before the break when brothers Sean and Paul O’Flynn combined with the latter fisting the ball to the net.O’Connell landed his fifth first half free on the stroke of half time to send Heywood in trailing by four – 2-6 to 0-8.The scoring slowed dramatically in the second half and that was largely down to Mountrath killing off the game in the third quarter.Sean O’Flynn landed two more points while Seth Burns kicked a free and Jack Priestly popped up with his second goal.Heywood moved midfielder Cathal Doyle onto the edge of the square and pumped high balls in at him but Mountrath defended him and the balls that came off him very well.Indeed, a point from substitute Brian Whelan was the best that Heywood could offer in the second half and that was never going to be enough.So Mountrath advance to the final which is scheduled for the end of the month where the Laois school are set to have home advantage.SCORERS – MOUNTRATH CS: Jack Priestley 1-0, Seth Burns (three frees) and Sean O’Flynn (three frees) 0-4 each, Paul O’Flynn 1-0, Danny Flanagan 0-1 HEYWOOD CS: Mark O’Connell 0-5 (all frees), Brian Whelan, Cathal Doyle, Johnathan Rafter (free) and Ciaran Byrne 0-1 eachMOUNTRATH CS: Fionn McWey (Ballyroan-Abbey); Ben Shore (Castletown), Thomas Scully (Emo), Gearoid O’Neill (Trumera); Nathan Little (Courtwood), Allan Connolly (Ballyfin), Ned Ryan (Emo); Sean O’Flynn (Courtwood), Evan Power (Castletown); Paul O’Flynn (Courtwood), Seth Burns (Courtwood), Tadhg Cuddy (Castletown); Jack Priestley (Ballyfin), Sean Greene (Emo), Danny Flanagan (Kinnity) Subs: Conor Walsh (Castletown) for Power (47m), Adam Connolly (Ballyfin) for Priestley (55m)HEYWOOD CS: Ruairi Nevin (Spink); Danny Brennan (Ballyroan-Abbey), Ciaran Carroll (St Joseph’s), Eoin Simms (Spink); Mark Kehoe (Spink), Fionn Holland (The Heath), Colm Walsh (Ballyroan-Abbey); Ned Glennon (Ballyraggott), Cathal Doyle (Ballyroan-Abbey); James McWey (Ballyroan-Abbey), Enda McWey (Ballyroan-Abbey), Dylan Cuddy (Ballyroan-Abbey); Ciaran Byrne (Ballyroan-Abbey), Mark O’Connell (Timahoe), Jonathan Rafter (Portlaoise).

The regulators are adopting a new regime designed to ensure that senior managers can be held accountable for misconduct that falls within their areas of responsibility, and a new certification regime and conduct rules that aim to hold individuals working at all levels to higher standards, among other things. In addition, the FCA also initiated consultations today on possible amendments to the rules to expand the new certification regime to individuals involved in wholesale activity, such as traders. The proposed change aims to ensure that individuals working in wholesale markets “who could pose significant harm to the firm or its customers are subject to the new accountability rules.” FCA consults on duty of care requirement UK CMA proposes pension investment reforms Related news Bankers in the U.K. are facing higher conduct standards under new rules adopted Tuesday by British regulators.

first_imgJames Langton Share this article and your comments with peers on social media The global exchange-traded fund and product industry (ETFs/ETPs) collected US$20.8 billion in new assets in August, according to the latest data from London, U.K.-based research firm ETFGI. Through the first eight months of the year, global ETFs/ETPs have enjoyed record net flows of US$219.7 billion, which is up by about 16% from the same period in 2014, the firm announced on Tuesday. Record net inflows for the first eight months of the year were set in the U.S., Europe, and Japan this year. In August, these net inflows came against the background of increased market volatility and heightened worries about the health of the global economy. “Worries about China’s stock market, currency and economy mixed with falling commodity prices helped to cause a correction in the U.S. stock market. The S&P 500 index ended August down 6%,” says Deborah Fuhr, managing partner at ETFGI, in a statement. In this environment, fixed income ETFs led the way with US$8.8 billion in net inflows, another US$2.4 billion went into equity products, and commodity ETFs/ETPs attracted US$1.5 billion. However, in the year to date period, equity ETFs/ETPs are still leading the way with net inflows of US$139.3 billion, followed by fixed income at US$52.8 billion, and commodity ETFs/ETPs with US$3.7 billion. In total, the global ETF/ETP industry now has 5,926 products in the market, representing US$2.86 trillion in assets, ETFGI reports. By issuer, Vanguard was the top performer in August, attracting monthly net inflows of US$4.7 billion, followed by DB x-trackers at US$3.4 billion, and Nomura AM with US$3.1 billion. For the year however, iShares is the industry leader with net inflows of US$63.4 billion, followed by Vanguard at US$54.9 billion, and DB x-trackers with US$25.2 billion.

This was announced on August 10 by Minister with responsibility for Information, Telecommunications and Special Projects, Hon. Daryl Vaz, at the weekly post-Cabinet press briefing at Jamaica House. Alcar Construction and Haulage Company Limited has been awarded $32.1 million for the building of new facilities to house the Maranatha Ministries Basic School in St. Andrew, while Marshall Construction Company Limited will undertake expansion works at the Newlands Basic School in St. Catherine at cost of $30.3 million. “The expansion (of Newlands Basic School) will enhance the capacity of the school, which currently does not meet the infrastructure standards of the Early Childhood Commission (ECC), in particular, standard four, which speaks to the physical environment, standard equipment, and furnishings for early childhood institutions,” Mr. Vaz said. He informed that the construction of the Maranatha School is in keeping with the recommendation from the ECC for the institution to have its own space. “(The) school operates from space that the church uses for other community outreach programmes. Enrolment at the school has increased from 40 in 1998 to 98 in 2009, highlighting the need for the school to have its own dedicated space,” he stated. The Maranatha Basic School has been in operation since 1998 as an outreach programme of the Maranatha Christian Church.
