  • China’s factory output rises

    first_img Chinese factories raised production modestly in March while cost inflation slowed, early signs that it has had some success in taming prices through monetary policy tightening.Two surveys of China’s vast manufacturing sector showed factories growing moderately rather than booming, and some economists said a further slowdown could be in store.Yet few thought slackening production would slam the brakes on the world’s fastest-growing major economy, even if it was starting to feel some trade damage from Japan’s earthquake and nuclear disasters.“It’s growing at a slow and steady speed as tighter monetary policy impacts,” said Stephen Green, an economist at Standard Chartered in Shanghai.“I’m not overly worried about growth. We need to hit inflation. That is the priority still,” he said.China’s official purchasing managers’ index (PMI), compiled by the government, rose to 53.4 in March from a six-month low of 52.2, slightly under a Reuters forecast for 54.A separate survey published by HSBC showed the PMI steadying near seven-month lows at 51.8, from February’s 51.7.Although both surveys made no mention of Chinese factories hurting from disrupted supplies from Japan, but in its analysis of the official survey China’s statistics bureau said Japan’s crisis was starting to take a toll on production.It said the electronics industry was feeling the squeeze of reduced supplies of parts and raw materials.High oil prices and excess cash in the Chinese economy drove China’s inflation to a 28-month high of 5.1 per cent in November but the surveys offered signs that price pressures were easing.The input prices sub-index, a measure of how much factories pay for raw materials and other intermediary goods, eased to 68.3 in March for the official PMI, from February’s 70.1, showing costs kept rising, but at a slower pace.

All of us – of every race – have “sins of the fathers” that are part of our history. Slavery would not have existed were it not for the greed of whites that met the equal greed of native Africans who sold their own people into bondage. The liberal progressive talking point framework will not work in the tragic events involving the city of my nearby neighbors (Charlottesville). The despicable white racists were there, yes. They were there under a legally granted permit to speak and then get out. Had they been allowed to speak and leave the entire world would have heard them and knew them for what they were. They would have been the sole insidious evidence of what we do not want to be. As it is, there were caravans of traveling agitators from Black Lives Matter, Antifa, Communists, and a disturbing brew of the deranged (including paid protesters) that came to town and made up this tragedy. They came to town, agitated, stuck their chins towards the police and white supremacists and wanted a confrontation. These people “on the other side” have spewed their own brands of hatred enough to know them for who they are, so let’s tell the whole story. It is immoral for Episcopalians to have been walking the streets of Charlottesville with “Black Lives Matter” signs while being deliberately oblivious to the hate speech and violence perpetrated by BLM. Boiling this down to “white sinfulness” is too simplistic. The real sin is “elitistism” and it is fluently practiced by many of all races and backgrounds with often violent results.

The shocking murder of Heather D. Heyer, just 32 years of age, while she protested the white supremacists who had come to Charlottesville, is a crude and brutal reminder that racism is still an ever present reality that forms a tragic worldview that expresses itself in violence and death. Along with Heather, we remember in our prayers Trooper-Pilot Berke M.M. Bates and Lt. H. Jay Cullen, the two State Patrol troopers who died on Saturday, and the many others wounded, including those who remain in a critical condition.For a seminary committed to the Gospel, we read the events of Charlottesville 2017 through the lens of the Gospel. We see the sinfulness of humanity—we see the persistence of conspiracy theories, hatred, and paranoia that forms the basis of the white supremacist worldview. We see the persistence of sin. For all of us who imagined that the victory of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s was enduring and secure, Charlottesville 2017 is a cruel reminder that just below the surface racism is seeking to “take the country back again.” We see the tragedy of suffering, where we trust the Crucified Christ is present. And we see the Church seeking to witness to a Gospel that rejects any ideology that denies the full humanity of all.I am proud of all of our VTS alumni who were present in Charlottesville. Bishop Shannon Johnston had encouraged clergy to attend. His call was heard. And the Episcopal Church wants to point to a world which is different—a world in which racism is explicitly condemned and persons commit to anticipating the reign of God in our society.Let us hear the challenge of Charlottesville, VA August 2017. The mystery of white sinfulness that allowed centuries of slavery and decades of segregation and even now seeks to recreate a racist society was present on Saturday. We must not be complacent. We must all work hard to eradicate the sinful dispositions that allow racism to thrive.The Very Rev. Ian S.

All the lovely verbiage cannot hide the truth that she and her sometime husband Nelson took pleasure in killing people who did not share their views, blacks as well as whites, in the most brutal ways possible of which “necklacing” was probably the worst example. These are facts which can easily be ascertained. It speaks ill of the Episcopal News Service that it evidently finds it impossible to come up with informed Anglicans in South Africa or elsewhere who could confirm that the most evil acts of the apartheid regime do not match those of some of its opponents and that would certainly include the beloved Winnie.

Speaking to the Anglican Communion News Service, Thabo said: “the nation – like we did with Albertina Sisulu – will stop and reflect on the democratic values that Winnie Mandela and the people she worked with stood for. The nation will cry, the nation will reflect deeply, and the nation will say ‘how do we move forward?’ in terms of who we are, particularly around the issues of the value of one-another, the respect for one-another, and inter-racial harmony and equality.”Read the entire article here. April 10, 2018 at 11:41 am The ACNS story quotes the archbishop as saying “There are mistakes that she made because life threw a lot of curve-balls towards her. But she handled some of those with dignity, but some she really hopelessly failed. But we need to remember the good that Winnie did, as a Methodist Christian, as a courageous woman, as a beautiful woman. And we need to say ‘what can we learn from who Winnie is?’”That call to reflection makes sense to me. The story of Winnie and Nelson Mandela’s role in the struggle to end apartheid is hardly simple and it is hardly possible to assign anyone in it to the categories of True Saint or Heinous Sinner. We also have to consider how quick some of us are to criticize black South Africans who failed to accomplish their goals through non-violent means while we erect statutes to white people such as Cecil Rhodes and Lord Nelson, and swooning over movie depictions of heroes such as Churchill who helped win World War II and championed the tactics that resulted in the slaughter we know as Gallipoli. Why is it so hard for us to accept the call to reflect on the enigmatic and the morally ambiguous, and learn from the struggle? Tags Rector Belleville, IL Comments are closed.

  • Striking warehouse workers & supporters shut down Walmart warehouse hub for day

    first_imgBulletin: As this story went to print, the 21-day strike came to an end. The striking workers at Walmart’s Elwood warehouse won their main demand: the company agreed to stop illegal retaliation against workers protesting bad conditions. The workers will return to work with full pay for all days they were on strike.Warehouse Workers United join associates on strike in Pico Rivera, Calif., Oct. 4.Photo: Our Walmart [Organization United for Respect]Elwood, Ill. — Striking warehouse workers, along with 600 union members, clergy and community supporters, marched on Oct. 1 at Walmart’s largest distribution center in North America located in Elwood, Ill. Seventeen people, including United Electrical Workers Director of Organizing Bob Kingsley and UE Western Region President Carl Rosen, were arrested in a civil disobedience action that blocked the road to the main truck entrance. The action scared the bosses so much that production at this central hub for Walmart distribution was completely shut down for the day.The Elwood warehouse workers went out on an unfair labor practice strike on Sept. 15. Most workers in the warehouses are temporary employees with no labor protections or stable jobs. Walmart has been passing all the responsibility for terrible working conditions onto contractors that run their warehouses.On Sept. 13, Warehouse Workers for Justice assisted workers in filing a sixth lawsuit against warehouses operated by various multinational corporations in the Wills County suburbs of Chicago, this time targeting Walmart. When workers took action the following day to deliver their demands to management, they were fired. This illegal retaliation triggered the strike.“These young folks can’t get a job anywhere these days. Then they come out here and get these temporary jobs that give nothing but disrespect, stolen wages. They don’t even get health insurance,” stated Pastor Craig Purchase of Mt. Zion Full Gospel Tabernacle Church in Joliet, Ill. “[The bosses] are shredding up our next generation. I call it the meat grinder.” (UE News, Oct. 3) Purchase, who is also president of the local Rainbow PUSH Coalition, was one of the 17 people arrested.Strikes show it’s ‘time to organize’A WWJ press release states: “The rally brought Walmart’s distribution system into the public eye to protest unfair labor practices and other abuses in the nation’s largest inland port. Now supporters all over the country want Walmart to know they support improved working conditions in the company’s warehouses.” The release continued, “Workers responsible for moving an estimated $1 trillion worth of goods a year through the global economy are paid low wages, often denied breaks and basic protective gear, and are employed primarily through temp agencies.”Strikers and supporters also delivered more than 100,000 petition signatures supporting their concerns to the management of the Chicago West Loop Walmart Express on Oct. 5.In striking, the Elwood workers joined their striking sisters and brothers in the Los Angeles area, who conducted a two-week strike beginning Sept. 12. Those workers held a 50-mile protest march demanding that Walmart take resonsibility for their stolen wages, health and safety violations, discrimination and sexual assault.“Warehouse workers in California won their strike. They got some health and safety situations cleared up and got Walmart to agree to participate in inspections and take responsibility for the working conditions,” reports striking warehouse worker Mike Compton in the same UE News article. “I have been there three months, and I am considered a veteran — the turnover rate is unbelievable.”“Warehouse Workers for Justice has recovered over $1 million in stolen wages, but lawsuits are only bandages. Now it is time to organize!” stated Cindy Marble, former warehouse worker and WWJ organizer during the Oct. 1 rally. “It’s personal to me. I lived it; my son worked there; I have family members that worked in warehouses. I am pissed. We are making lots of money for this company, and they are treating people like slaves.“Walmart sets the bar for warehouses around here, they can’t keep blaming it on the contractors. Walmart needs to take responsibility for what is going on in their house,” Marble concluded.Meanwhile, logistics workers — from the ports to the warehouses, transportation networks and railroads — are now organizing across the country. Retail workers inside Walmart stores are forming organizations, and warehouse workers in New Jersey are beginning to organize.Rampant abusesCurtis Tucker, 22-year-old striker, was formerly a floor worker but got transferred to the receiving department after signing the union petition. After having worked three days in the warehouse, he went to get his paycheck only to be told that they did not know who he was and there was no paycheck for him. Tucker told Workers World, “I am on strike to make this a better job for my family. I have three kids and a wife, and I just need a reasonable salary.”Tucker also spoke about the dangerous working conditions, especially when workers are forced to perform duties without adequate staff and equipment. He stated, “They give us boxes that say ‘team lift,’ but then only allow one worker to pick it up. We get assigned to an entire truck to unpack all by ourselves.”Earlier this year on International Women’s Day, March 8, women leaders in WWJ organized a major public hearing to draw attention to the rampant sexual assault and discrimination against women. According to a WWJ report, 90 percent of women face sexual harassment in the workplaces at Will County warehouses.“Working in these warehouses we are lucky to get $200 per week. … You can’t afford food, can’t afford a babysitter, can’t afford anything we need to live,” Uylonda Dickerson told Workers World. “I have been sexually assaulted. Who comes to work to have our body looked at? We don’t come here to be touched.” When workers complain about this harassment, it is often ignored by the mostly male supervisors. Dickerson reports they would dismiss her and say, “You are just being a female.”WWJ filed a lawsuit against this treatment.

A Single Bench of Justice Yashwant Varma dismissed the Association’s contention that discontinuation of paper stamps by the State Government violates the constitutional protections guaranteed by Articles 19(1)(g), 21 and 38 of the Constitution. At the outset, it was observed that merely because the Government has introduced E-Stamping Rules, does not show that it has discontinued the use of physical stamp altogether. Even otherwise, the Association’s members’ right to deal in stamps is not a right but it is founded exclusively on the license granted under the UP Stamp Rules 1942. Thus, “A right to engage in the trade, business or occupation of collecting tax for and on behalf of the Government was not one which was recognised even in common law. It therefore needs to be understood that the petitioners do not and cannot in law be recognised in law to possess an inalienable right to carry on the trade or business of stamps except in accordance with the grant as conferred under the Act and the Rules framed thereunder.” It is significant to note that the matter was placed before the Bench of Varma in light of the difference of opinion expressed by the Justices SP Kesarwani and Ajay Bhanot, constituting a Division Bench of the Court. While Justice Kesarwani held that the writ petition would merit dismissal, Justice Bhanot was of the opinion that the Respondents must be required to file their counter affidavits in the matter to enable the Court to deal with the questions raised in greater detail. In his order, Justice Varma concurred with Justice Kesarwani. It has been held, “if the submission addressed on behalf of the petitioners be accepted in literal terms, it would essentially mean recognizing a right vesting in them to compel the Government to necessarily engage in business or enter into a contract with the petitioners for the sale of physical stamps in posterity to the exclusion of all other modes. As a necessary corollary, the Court would also have to recognise a right inhering in the petitioners to compel parties to instruments to purchase physical stamps. Neither of the above can be countenanced as a right which can be legitimately traced to Articles 19(1)(g), 21 or 38.” The main contention of the Petitioner-Association was that the terms of the agreement as structured under the Uttar Pradesh E-Stamping Rules, 2013 were bound to place licensed stamp vendors in a disadvantageous position and necessarily result in them suffering a loss. It was submitted that the commission which was guaranteed to them under the 1942 Rules should also govern the trade and distribution of e-stamps. Constitution guarantees right to trade, not profit The Single Bench was however of the opinion that the assertions made in the writ petition are based entirely on assumptions and presumptions. It noted that no material or evidence had been brought forth to establish conclusively that the Petitioners would in fact suffer losses under the new e-stamp Rules. On this note, the Bench proceeded to make a significant observation— “What the Constitution essentially guarantees is the right to engage in a profession, occupation, trade or business. It neither proffers nor holds forth a guarantee of a profit in that trade or business.” The Bench has made it clear that a business or a trade may become unprofitable or unviable on account of various factors such as the advent of technology, change in consumer preferences, entrance of new competitors, a policy shift of the Government aimed at subserving larger public interest or security of revenue. But in the end, these are mere vagaries of trade which cannot be recognised as constituting the infringement of a fundamental right to carry on that trade or business. The order stated, “the petitioner cannot possibly assert or place an obligation upon the appropriate government to frame a business model which may necessarily guarantee a return or a profit in a particular trade or business. Ultimately it is for the individual to ascertain and assess whether it would be profitable for him to engage in that business or pursuit. Any existing trade would be susceptible to change or disruption in the business environment. In fact disruption is a specter which always exists as technological advances are made and new and more efficient processes evolve. The Constitution holds forth no guarantees against such fluctuations.” Introduction of E-Stamps germane to avoid fraud The Bench observed that the Petitioner and its members have not been deprived of the right to engage in the trade of physical stamp paper. In fact, the agreement proposed by Stock Holding Corporation of India, (the Central Record Keeping Agency) and the 2013 Rules additionally empower the petitioner to engage in the sale and distribution of e stamps. It noted, “The introduction of [e-stamping] system rests on sound, germane and weighty reasons such as avoidance of fraud and forgery of stamp paper, securing collection of State revenue and a host of other factors which were taken into consideration. E stamping in essence represents a policy initiative formulated by the State. The aforesaid policy decision has neither been assailed nor has it been established to be arbitrary. Ultimately it is for the State to take a principled decision and formulate its policy with respect to the quantity and value of physical stamp paper that may be permitted to circulate and to determine how much of the total demand of stamp paper is to be in the physical or e stamp form. This Court would be treading down perhaps an impermissible or at least uncertain path if it were to either arrogate to itself this power or decide this issue by way of a judicial fiat and that too in respect of an issue which clearly falls in the realm of policy.” Case Title: All UP Stamp Vendors Association v.

  • New High Line section will connect to Moynihan Train Hall

    first_imgMessage* Gov. Andrew Cuomo told the publication that he believes the new link fits into the state’s larger plan to revitalize the Penn Station transit hub, which includes a new entrance for Penn Station on Seventh Avenue, and the new Moynihan complex, located within the James A. Farley Post Office Building. Early last year, the governor announced an ambitious plan to expand Penn Station by building another terminal on a full city block just south of the station.“It’s clear that if the metropolitan area is going to grow, mass transit has to be better, safer, more pleasant, especially in this new world,” Cuomo said.The High Line, which opened in 2009, was a catalyst for West Chelsea’s transformation from an industrial neighborhood into a high-end destination. Luxury condos have sprouted along the elevated park and between 2003 and 2011, property values near the park increased 103 percent, according to a 2012 study from the New York City Economic Development Corporation.

  • Pocket listings exclude minority homebuyers, Redfin CEO says

    first_img Share via Shortlink The debate over pocket listings has been raging for years.Clear Cooperation Policy took effect last May and soon after, NAR — the nation’s most powerful real estate trade organization — was slapped with two antitrust lawsuits. One of those suits was filed by Top Agent Network, a networking and communication platform open to agents that meet a certain criteria. Its founder, David Faudman, has said the rule could “destroy” his business and that NAR was “trying to eliminate competition.”In December, one of the plaintiffs on the lawsuits, Pocket Listing Service, relaunched as a public-facing site. It will allow agents and the public to search exclusively for private listings after one business day.Contact Cordilia James glenn kelmanNational Association of RealtorsredfinResidential Real Estate Redfin CEO Glenn Kelman (Getty, Redfin)Off-market listings have long been a controversial topic, with agents who oppose them claiming they provide an unfair advantage to brokers at the top end of the market.But Redfin CEO Glenn Kelman sees another problem: These so-called pocket listings also exclude minority homebuyers.In an opinion column in Inman and in Twitter posts, Kelman wrote how brokerages often hold 10 percent of their listings off market, spanning cities like Chicago, Minneapolis and Columbus, Ohio.“Study after study after study shows these excluded buyers are disproportionately people of color,” Kelman said. “This is why marketing every listing to the public isn’t just one way to make housing more fair. It is, according to housing scholars, the first principle of a fair market.”ADVERTISEMENTIn late 2019, the National Association of Realtors approved a measure that bans its members from taking pocket listings. The Clear Cooperation Policy requires brokers to submit a listing to a multiple listing service within a business day of marketing a property to the public. The policy is designed to even the playing field for all brokers and maintain the MLS as a one-stop shop, according to NAR.But the ban had a loophole that allowed big brokerages to utilize pocket listings as “office exclusives,” Kelman said in his column on Tuesday. In a series of tweets Kelman sent the same day, he noted that agencies had taken advantage of that loophole.“With competition fierce,” he said, an agent will utilize the pocket listing “to recruit new home buying customers. It’s hard to argue this benefits anyone but the agent.”Kelman cited an analysis from his own company that suggests the share of off-market listings jumped by 67 percent from November 2019 — when Clear Cooperation Policy was approved — to March 2021.He suggested NAR close the “office exclusive” loophole, and advised MLS platforms to limit how a home is marketed by syndicating data about listings without photos or price points.Another alternative, he said, would be to require agents to share their listings with other agents if not with the public. Kelman supported Clear Cooperation Policy when it was proposed and made a similar call about opening up the market for more minority homebuyers at the time it passed.Read moreSecret listings soar Pushback over going “clear”: NAR sued for pocket listing ban Long live NAR: Agents won’t defy powerful trade group in pocket listings spat Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Full Name* Email Address* Tags Message*last_img read more
