Auto loan delinquencies rise in Alberta and Saskatchewan: TransUnion report by The Canadian Press Posted Feb 17, 2016 4:00 am MDT Last Updated Feb 17, 2016 at 5:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – Delinquency rates on auto loans are soaring, pointing to another spillover effect from the slowdown in the oilpatch.Credit monitoring agency TransUnion says in its latest report that auto loan delinquency rates climbed nearly 10 per cent in the fourth quarter of last year to their worst levels in four years.The increase was led by higher rates in Alberta and Saskatchewan where workers have been hit directly and indirectly by job losses due to the drop in oil prices.TransUnion says that nationally, auto loan delinquency rates were 1.32 per cent in the fourth quarter of last year, up from 1.21 per cent the previous year.However, the auto loan delinquency rate hit 2.66 per cent in Saskatchewan, up from 2.24 per cent year over year.And Alberta saw a delinquency rate of 2.42 per cent, up from 1.80 per cent in the fourth quarter of 2014.“This was the largest spike in the national auto loan delinquency rate that we’ve observed in quite some time, but we do think it’s a regional issue,” said Jason Wang, TransUnion’s director of research and analysis in Canada.“Falling oil prices have led to rising unemployment rates in oil-rich regions. We are now seeing the increase in unemployment in these areas manifest as rising delinquencies across the board, though the greatest impact has been on auto loans.”Overall, delinquency rates for non-mortgage loans in the fourth quarter were roughly the same at 2.67 per cent, versus 2.66 per cent a year ago.For Alberta the rate was 2.77 per cent, up from 2.62 per cent, while Saskatchewan rose to 3.01 per cent from 2.92 per cent.The report also said average non-mortgage debt ticked higher to $21,512 in the final three months of 2015, up from $21,428 a year earlier.The increase came as debt levels rose for auto loans, credit cards and instalment loans, but decreased for lines of credit. read more

It was the middle of April, and the score was tied between the Miami Marlins and Seattle Mariners. It was the bottom of the ninth, the bases were loaded, and nobody was out. Marlins masher Giancarlo Stanton was at the plate against Mariners reliever Yoervis Medina, and Medina was ahead one ball and two strikes, in position to put Stanton away and extend the inning. But then he made a terrible mistake with a breaking ball, and Stanton knows what to do to with mistakes.Your browser does not support iframes.That pitch, that was a meatball — a pitch so appetizing a hitter can’t help but think of devouring it whole. And big league batters can eat; they don’t leave many meatballs on the plate.There’s only a limited understanding of what a meatball is. One general definition: “an easy pitch to hit, thrown right down the middle of the plate.” Major League Baseball’s official lingo agrees. Brooks Baseball defines “grooved pitches” as pitches thrown in the middle-middle of the plate, regardless of movement or velocity.But there has been no available resource that shows what happens to meatballs when they’re served up. So I looked at 1.7 million pitches over about six and a half seasons since 2008, culled from PITCHf/x and Baseball Savant, and found that off-speed meatballs lead to the kind of slugs that make highlight reels, but fastballs get swung at and hit more often.Meatballs are subjective enough that there’s no way to separate them from non-meatballs with 100 percent accuracy. But to analyze them I had to at least approximate a definition, so that I could create two buckets: one presumably containing mostly meatballs, the other presumably containing mostly non-meatballs.I’m defining a meatball as a pitch over the middle of the plate, between the thigh and the belt, and one that doesn’t hang around the bottom of the strike zone (because pitchers often throw low on purpose). So my data set includes pitches over the middle third of the plate, in the upper two-thirds of the strike zone, meaning 22 percent of the strike zone is meatball territory. But not all pitches that land in that area are meatballs. I’ve excepted knuckleballs, whose movement is usually too erratic,1Admittedly, a flat, undancing knuckleball can be a meatball made out of filet mignon. and also fastballs over 95 mph, under the assumption that at high enough speeds, meatballs don’t really exist. If Aroldis Chapman lays a 100 mph pitch down the pipe, a hitter barely catches a whiff of meat before the ball’s in the catcher’s glove.This definition includes about a quarter of the homers hit so far this season. But homers aren’t the only reason meatballs are interesting: They’re a vehicle to find out more about a pitcher’s worst mistakes, and how different those mistakes are from his peak performance.Take the chart below, which shows whether batters are more enticed to swing when they see a meatball coming toward them, as we suspect they are. I’ve split up fastballs and off-speed2“Off-speed” refers to both traditional off-speed pitches (e.g. change-ups), and breaking balls (e.g. sliders). pitches to show how they’re thrown and treated differently. The data is also broken down by how the count looks from the pitcher’s perspective3I separated pitches by count-types because hitters vary their aggressiveness depending on the count.: “ahead” refers to pitcher-friendly counts4Those are: 0-1, 0-2, 1-2, 2-2.; “behind” classifies pitcher-unfriendly counts5Those are: 1-0, 2-0, 3-0, 3-1.; and “even” encompasses counts where neither hitter nor pitcher is in the power position.6Those are: 0-0, 1-1, 2-1, 3-2. Hitters swing at meaty fastballs, on average, far more frequently than at off-speed meatballs. That feels intuitive, since hitters look for fastballs over the middle, so speedy meatballs are already where hitters expect them to be. With the pitcher ahead, hitters swing at meaty fastballs 93 percent of the time, but at non-meaty fastballs 80 percent of the time. We don’t see these gaps with off-speed pitches. In every case, the rates are just about even, suggesting that breaking balls, on average, may be as deceptive when they’re meaty as when they’re not. Alternatively, batters might not be able to track off-speed pitches as well as they track fastballs.Swinging is one thing, but we mostly care about swing results. We can also look at whether hitters make contact with meatballs more often.When hitters are swinging at off-speed pitches, they’re doing better on the meatballs. In every case, fastballs are struck somewhere between 87 percent to 90 percent of the time. But with off-speed stuff, there are clear differences in the contact rates — the mistakes are getting hit. There’s a reason hanging breaking balls have a bad reputation.So we know that hitters like to swing at fast meatballs and make better contact on off-speed meatballs, but what really matters is which bad pitches are most exploited.It’s no surprise that meatballs are turned around with more success than other, higher-quality strikes. What’s interesting is the extent to which that’s true. The biggest difference is with off-speed pitches in even counts — meaty ones have yielded a slugging percentage 119 points higher than non-meaty ones. In those situations, hitters are neither sitting on a fastball nor looking to swing at anything close.That’s indicative of the main discovery: There’s a far bigger difference for off-speed pitches than for fastballs in every type of count. The average overall fastball gap is 48 slugging points, while the average overall off-speed gap is 104 points.Off-speed pitches lead to more home runs, too. Here’s a table showing home runs per swing attempt:Of course, my analysis isn’t perfect. Meatballs and non-meatballs could probably be separated with greater purity, given infinite hours of time, and a meatball to Giancarlo Stanton doesn’t work the same as a meatball to Ben Revere. Under few circumstances should a pitcher ever want to throw a pitch up in the zone and down the middle of the plate. But as the evidence shows, most meatballs still don’t get punished. Pitchers get away with the majority of their mistakes because hitting is incredibly difficult and the fate of a mistake depends in part on the context. The way pitches are woven together can make a pitch down the middle surprising and effective, even if it wasn’t actually supposed to go there.What a meatball really is presumably changes with every situation. Meaty pitches are hit out of the park more often than non-meaty pitches, and the biggest difference is, yet again, with off-speed pitches in even counts, where a meatball is almost twice as likely to be hit out of the park as a non-meatball. (Note that these home run numbers were included in my earlier slugging-point analysis.)But all types of meatballs hurt somehow. The off-speed ones aren’t swung at as often, but when hitters do make contact, they’re clobbering the ball. The fastball variety, meanwhile, do entice a hitter to take a swing, leading to a ball that’s more likely to find its way around the defense. And whether it’s a fastball or an off-speed pitch, meatballs are still the most homer-friendly pitch I’ve seen.The more I looked into the meatball, the more it confirmed my suspicion: no matter the particulars, it’s the bad pitch we assumed it was. read more

first_imgTHE EUROPEAN COURT of Human Rights has ruled that a woman does not have to sever her legal link with her son before being able to have her child adopted by her lesbian partner, in a landmark ruling.The Strasbourg-based court ruled that Austria’s ban on the procedure – where domestic rules only permit one woman to be a ‘mother’, or one man a ‘father’ to a child at any one time – were a violation of the European Convention on Human Rights, which assures the right to a private family life.The court  ruled that the same-sex couple were being treated differently to how an unmarried heterosexual couple would be treated, finding that in the latter case, a single parent’s partner would have no difficulty in adopting the child and becoming their legal guardian.The court overruled lower Austrian courts which ruled that the country’s laws defined “parents” as a man and woman – an interpretation which therefore made it impossible for one woman to be deemed the child’s ‘mother’ without her partner, the biological mother, first giving up that right.It said that the Austrian government had not advanced any “convincing reasons” to show that its different treatment of an unmarried same-sex couple and an unmarried heterosexual couple was necessary to protect the family or the interests of the child.However, the ruling stopped short of requiring European countries to give unmarried couples the right of second-parent adoption, irrespective of their sexual orientation.No requirement to allow adoption for unmarried couplesThis followed a ruling in a similar French case where the court did not require states to offer full same-sex marriage, and acknowledged that different European countries granted differing levels of legal recognition to same-sex couples.It also observed that some countries do not allow unmarried couples to adopt, irrespective of their orientation or the biological status of one parent, and so did not require countries to offer this either.Same-sex couples in countries without full gay marriage laws regularly face legal obstacles when it comes to the legal status of their children: most countries, including Ireland, will only recognise the biological parent as a child’s parent and overlooks the domestic status of the other parent.This means that a lesbian couple who use the services of a sperm donor to conceive are not both perceived as ‘parents’. This can cause difficulty when children are legal minors and are admitted to hospital, for example: only the legally recognised parent can visit the child or have input in medical treatment, for example.In cases where the biological parent dies, there is then no legally recognised relationship between the child and the other adult involved in their upbringing.In a separate ruling issued yesterday, Germany’s highest court ruled that a man could legally adopt children which had already been adopted by his gay partner.Previously, Germany only allowed a person to adopt their same-sex partner’s children if their partner was the biological parent of the child. Now, a child adopted by one person can be freely adopted by the adoptive parent’s partner, irrespective of their sex or orientation.Read: Northern Ireland’s ban on gay and unmarried adoption overturnedlast_img read more

It is vital to our democracy that big tech companies can’t affect the outcome of elections— Tulsi Gabbard (@TulsiGabbard) July 25, 2019This is all just an algorithmic misunderstanding, though.Google’s automated systems flag unusual activity on advertiser accounts—including large spending changes—to prevent fraud, The New York Times reported.“In this case, our system triggered a suspension and the account was reinstated shortly thereafter,” company spokesman Jose Castaneda told the paper.“We are proud to offer ad products that help campaigns connect directly with voters, and we do so without bias toward any party or political ideology,” he added.This lawsuit, according to the Times, is believed to be the first time a presidential candidate has sued a major technology firm.“Google’s discriminatory actions against my campaign are reflective of how dangerous their complete dominance over internet search is, and how the increasing dominance of big tech companies over our public discourse threatens our core American values,” Gabbard told the newspaper.“This is a threat to free speech, fair elections, and to our democracy, and I intend to fight back on behalf of all Americans,” she said.Calls to dissolve big tech have been gaining steam among politicians: Sen. Elizabeth Warren, another 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, in March called for the government to break up monopolies and promote competitive markets.Gabbard’s suit was filed a day after the Federal Trade Commission opened a formal antitrust investigation into Facebook’s business practices, and fined the social network a record $5 billion for deceiving users about its privacy practices.More on Toy Maker Dame Sues MTA Over Sexist Ad PoliciesTesla Sued Over Fatal Crash Involving Model X With Autopilot Engaged‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ Publisher Sues Netflix Over Trademarkscenter_img Long-shot presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard is suing Google for violating her right to free speech.The U.S. Representative for Hawaii claims the tech titan infringed on her First Amendment freedom when it briefly suspended Gabbard’s advertising account after June’s Democratic debates.The lawsuit, filed Thursday in a Los Angeles federal court, suggests Google “arbitrarily and forcibly” deactivated her account for six hours on June 28—prime time for raising money and reaching potential voters.“During this time, Google obfuscated and dissembled with a series of inconsistent and incoherent reasons for its actions,” Gabbard’s media team wrote in a press release. “In the end, Google never explained to us why Tulsi’s account was suspended.”The campaign also maintains that its emails were being directed to Gmail spam folders “at a disproportionately high rate” compared to other Democratic presidential hopefuls.Gabbard is seeking an injunction against Google from interfering in the election and damages of at least $50 million.last_img read more

first_imgWomen and family lifestyle titles show the most stable growth potential amongst the top 25 consumer titles. Specifically, Family Fun Magazine grew its total circulation by 7.3 percent. Spanish language titles continue to uptick in 2013 with both print and digital circulations. For instance, Vanidades expanded its total circulation by 57.2 percent, and its digital subscription base is nearly 15 percent the size of its print circulation. A similar trend is noticeable in many niche and enthusiast titles as well. The top 25 consumer magazines by digital circulation size are a mixed bag, with Game Informer Magazine leading the way at just under 3 million subscriptions. But the disparity from 1 to 25 is vast, with last-place People only reaching 73,181 digital subscribers. Nevertheless, all or at least most content categories are represented in the top 25, which suggests digital magazines have become appealing to a broad audience. Troubling, however, are single-copy newsstand sales. Newsstand sales continue to face hard times, but according the MPA only account for around 10 percent of revenues, and the AAM indicates that portion could be even smaller. Regardless, that still accounts for revenue outputs in the billions.Men’s magazines are seeing none of the growth women’s titles are, as sales continue to soften.Maxim fell 23.8 percent in single-copy sales, as did Playboy, down 42.5 percent over the last year. Both also saw their digital sales drop. There was digital growth with Men’s Health, up 0.6 percent, and Men’s Journal, up 4.9 percent, the title’s single-copy sales negated all gains falling 11.2 percent and 25.4 percent, respectively.However, a bright spot in newsstand sales was saved for publishers targeting gun aficionados. American Rifleman’s total print sales were up 14.2 percent to over 1.9 million readers, and Handguns magazine saw single-copy sales jump 34.3 percent.Worth noting is that tablet media sales spiked 84 percent during this same time period, so the residual impact from those sales could move the needle in the second half of 2013 and beyond. The Alliance for Audited Media has released its semi-annual Snapshot report that shows a decline of .1-percent in circulation when combining print and digital. Additionally, rapidly declining single-copy newsstand sales are casting more shadows over magazine publishers.Digital circulation was no doubt a growth catalyst for many publications. That is, magazines with the most significant overall increases are also typically offering digital subscriptions. Still, for most titles, digital circulation sizes are on average between 1 to 10 percent the size of their print counterparts, with the exception of a few outliers. In fact, the AAM reports 3.3 percent (10.2 million subscriptions) of total circulation is stemming from digital subscriptions, up from 1.7 percent (5.4 million) in 2012.

Dipnetters Try Their Luck On The Kenai River

September 9, 2019 | uhjupwev | No Comments

first_imgDipnetters crowd the water on the north shore of the Kenai River. Photo by Annie Feidt.The state’s largest personal use fishery is happening on the Kenai river. Dipnetters from across the state are crowding onto the north and south beaches at the mouth of the river hoping to fill coolers with sockeye salmon. Chad Preston is standing chest deep in frigid ocean water. He’s fighting a swift current as he holds onto his dipnet. Preston’s been in the water all day and he’s not smiling.Download Audio“Well I’m trying, so far I only caught one fish and I’m disappointed right now.”Preston at least has one thing going for him- the water is not as crowded as it usually is.Most people are waiting out the slow period on the beach. Novena Registe is sitting in the breezy sun with a group of friends. She opens up her cooler to show off the seven fish she’s caught so far.Registe started dipnetting 10 years ago to feed her family. Now she does it for another reason- because she loves it.“It’s when that fish hit that net and you pull it out, it’s a special feeling that no one can describe.”Reporter: “Try to describe it.”Registe: “It just makes you feel so good. It’s just exciting. I just love fishing.”Novena Registe (left) shows off a fish she caught.The crowds on the Kenai are not for everyone. When the fishing is hot, dipnetters are standing shoulder to shoulder in the water. Walking on the beach requires stepping over nets, sleds and other gear. But it’s not hard to find people who love the carnival-like scene, like Monica Workman:“This is truly the Alaskan experience. And we own a boat and people think we’re crazy, they’re like, why don’t you just take your boat out and we’re like no way! Because this- the whole experience of just being on the beach, the water, the people, the sun- when it’s out- it’s just a really neat experience.”Workman is dipnetting with her husband and two kids. She says they all have a job to do. Her husband catches the fish. Her son bonks them. Her daughter slices the gills and Workman guts them. This is their 5th year dipnetting. Their first year, she says, things were not as streamlined:“We didn’t even pack water. We had a little net, my husband had hip waders and I didn’t have a knife, a cooler, nothing. We’re like well, let’s just see what it’s like. And people are so nice out here, there was a lady who lent me everything, she gave me a knife told me how to gut it and everything.”Now the Workmans are the experts- passing their knowledge along to their friend Robert Carter, who is in his 70’s but dipnetting for the first time. It hasn’t been an easy initiation. Carter has patiently held his net in the water for most of day without catching a single fish. And then- finally- success.Robert Carter poses for a “fancy picture” of the first fish he caught dipnetting on the Kenai.He drags his net onto the beach to inspect his catch:“It’s a monster!”Carter holds his dipnet in one hand and his fish in the other and poses for a celebratory picture:“I want a fancy picture. That was unbelievable!”And with that, Carter heads back out in the water, going for his next fish.last_img read more

And now urge the students to leave the roads and return to their classes,” the former dictator said in his statement.”I hope the protest of children demanding safe roads will be a milestone, they should return to classes after their demands are met”, he said.He warned the countrymen that some vested groups were trying to gain political advantage centering the student movement and also urged the transport owners and workers to withdraw their strike.On 29 July, Diya Khanam Mim and Abdul Karim Rajib, students of the college section of Shaheed Ramiz Uddin School and College, were killed as a ‘Jabal-e-Noor Paribahan’ bus ploughed through some students in front of Kurmitola General Hospital on Airport Road which sparked off protests among the students across the country.last_img read more

first_imgIf you have a PlayStation Plus subscription, you are eligible to partake in Sony’s first open access beta for its hotly anticipated PS3 title PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. The game is Sony’s answer to Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros franchise, and it is due out this holiday season.Players will be able to duke it out with characters from the nearly two decades of PlayStation history, ranging from the classics that every casual fan knows to the more obscure for the truly fanatical Sony fanboys to appreciate. The game launches on November 20, but the beta goes live today for PlayStation Plus subscribers.In the beta, users will have access to the playable characters Kratos, Sweeth Tooth, Colonel Radec, Sly Cooper, PaRappa the Rapper, and Fat Princess. All come from very different genres and different time periods from within the storied PlayStation universe.Of course, at its heart this is a test for Sony to just put the game through its online connectivity paces and make sure that the network support is fully in place. So it is all about online matches; users can participate in four-player melee fights, or 2-vs-2 games to allow players to invite friends and compete in team-based brawls.Also launching is the beta of the PlayStation Vita version, which is available to everyone and not just PlayStation Plus members. This game is one of Sony’s poster children for “cross-play” functionality, which means the game is functionally identical between the PS3 and Vita so players can take the experience with them on the go. This is also fully represented in the beta.For those who don’t have PlayStation Plus, the beta will be opening up for all PS3 users next week.via PlayStation Bloglast_img read more

first_imgWith fewer places for the young and the alternative to meet in Nicosia, the old market has provided a temporary reprieveWalking past the old municipal market in the heart of Nicosia’s old town, an artist called Chloe Finn saw the doors of the previously abandoned building wide open.She went in and found a man transforming one of the stalls from the once bustling market into a bar. He tells her the municipality is handing out the stalls for the next six months in an attempt to revive the building before it’s renovated to accommodate a new research centre, RISE.She’d been looking for a studio space in the old town for a while, so she jumped at the opportunity, sent a proposal to the Nicosia municipality and now the tiled white walls of one of the stalls are filled with her artwork.Olga, owner of the arts and design stall“Now we’re a group of around 30 people, all very different, with different interests and different world-views, each with their assigned stalls in which they use as they like but all sharing the common space which is the old market,” Chloe said.A space like this was urgently needed, she said, especially in view of the seemingly unstoppable wave of gentrification taking over the old quarters of Nicosia, which has led to the exclusion of the vibrant youth cultures that used to fill the squares and other public spaces.Chloe Finn in her studio, one of the old market stallsThe first arrivals came in July, after word spread that plans for the renovation of the old municipal market which was set to begin at the beginning of the year were postponed until 2019. The firstcomers were faced with the daunting task of taking an abandoned public building, and, through their own initiative, giving it life and colour and opening it up to the public once more.The old market stalls now host a variety of endeavours: an atelier, a stall dedicated to upcycling, another to a circular economy, a second hand and vintage clothing shop, a repair café for bikes, a recording studio, an arts and design stall, a jewellery and crafts shop, a stall where science will be taught to children in a fun way, a stall for the Arte Migrant initiative offering choreotherapy among other things, and, of course, a bar.“It’s a modern market, in a way,” the upcycling expert, Alexandros Ioannou, said, “but it’s also a social experiment, not just for us making use of the stalls, but for the youth, the community, and for those who had experienced the market filled with life.”Graffiti art on some of the wallsGrey walls now showcase colourful graffiti art, decorations hang from columns and the roof, while cosy seating areas are spread across the large central common area and the doors are wide open for all.“We want to create a common space and a common time, a place in the city where people can socialise without having to pay,” Chloe said.“I realised that this space could also accommodate something we used to have a few years ago in old Nicosia and something that has become almost impossible today: a space for social interaction without the necessity of exchanging money too.”An agora, in the ancient sense of the term, a place where people simply met and communicated. This is what we want for this space, she said.A tribute to the bustling marketplace the building once hosted, a tribute to the subcultures that once filled the nearby squares before the cafes took them over – the temporary set-up in the old municipal market offers a breath of fresh air in the increasingly gentrified old quarters of Nicosia.A developing city, but who for?“When you’re developing a city, you need to think of all the people living in it. With the way in which Nicosia has developed there are those who will, of course, enjoy the way it has become, and the cafés in Phaneromeni square. But there are those communities who used to be there before and were evacuated to make space for this other kind of development,” Alexandros said.“And if you don’t make an effort to include these people, then they will react in ways that bring elements into the city that you don’t want to see since it’s becoming clear that the city no longer makes everyone who uses it feel welcome” he added.Phaneromeni square has been filled with cafes and the church has raised its fencesThe urban landscape of within the walls Nicosia has been undergoing accelerated changes for the last half a dozen years, when the city’s commercial centre began shifting from Makariou Avenue and back into its historical home, the old city.Today, that commercial centre is expanding to include the entire historic centre, at least on the south of the dividing line, through projects such as the new Town Hall, the development of Ermou street, the planned though stalled development of Lidinis street into a Creative Industry Quarter and the RISE research centre which will be hosted in the old municipal market.The processes of gentrification have brought in a new life for consumer culture, but at the expense of other forms of urban life that inhabited the city beforehand, and that centred on the importance of public space rather than consumption.Critics say the gentrification project in Nicosia has proven to be careless in terms of balancing private and public spaces, as epitomised by the “battle of the benches” in 2014.Similar projects in urban spaces elsewhere usually mean an increased number of free places to sit. In Nicosia, it has meant the opposite. The first to disappear were some of the benches on Ledra street, then Onasagorou street and Phaneromeni square. The cafes came, demanded outside space, and most of the benches vanished. And so did many of the young who used to congregate in the area.The old market is due to be renovated into a new research centre RISEWith the disappearance of spaces for public gathering, and most notably with the takeover of Phaneromeni square – once a hub for subcultures – by cafes, disenchanted and displaced groups searched for alternative locations.“With how things have become, it’s not even about the events we’re going to hold in the market, but about getting people to gather, to communicate,” Chloe said.“We’re all really desperate for a hub, where everyone has their own space to do things together but also separately,” said Miltos Michaelides. a musician setting up a recording studio in one of the stalls.With only two more months to go for the old municipal market “experiment”, Miltos says that the aim is “to form strong bonds that could move beyond this specific space, to re-establish the importance of collective and cooperative coexistence”.Constantinos, owner of the Agora Bar inside the old marketOne such location was the square outside the old municipal market, perhaps the only square in the centre of the old city that has yet to be embellished with hip consumer spots, though these are surely on the way with the planned developments for the area.Xenios Symeonides from the Nicosia Municipal Arts Centre (Nimac) and coordinator of the old municipal market project on behalf of the municipality, said that “we’re hoping that the central space in the market, as well as the square outside it, remains open to the public, even once the research centre opens, since we know how important this is for the community.“Development projects and the public can co-exist, and we hope that they will,” he said.You May LikeUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoAngels And EntrepreneursRobert Herjavec Announce Venture Could Make You RichAngels And EntrepreneursUndoDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
