CALGARY — Shares in Ensign Energy Services Inc. fell by as much as 6.8 per cent after it reported a second-quarter net loss of $31.7 million or 20 cents per share, compared with a net loss of $36.7 million or 23 cents a year earlier.The Calgary-based drilling company’s revenue jumped 44 per cent to $378 million from $263 million, mainly due to its acquisition late last year of rival Trinidad Drilling Ltd.The results missed analyst expectations of a net loss of $25.7 million or 13 cents a share on revenue of $419 million in the three months ended June 30, according to financial markets data firm Refinitiv.Ensign’s biggest boost to year-over-year revenue came from the United States, where it rose by 77 per cent to $261 million, despite softening demand, to account for 69 per cent of the total. It has 134 marketed rigs in the U.S.In contrast, its Canadian revenue rose by just 11 per cent to $51 million — despite the addition of 68 Trinidad rigs to take its fleet to 118 marketed rigs — accounting for 14 per cent of the total.International revenue was down slightly at $66 million but still exceeded the Canadian contribution.“The integration of Trinidad into Ensign has now been largely completed with the full amalgamation taking place on April 1,” said Ensign president Bob Geddes.“We continue to focus on realizing the previously announced $40 million of cost savings which primarily relate to the elimination of duplicate costs and facilities.” Companies in this article: (TSX:ESI)The Canadian Press
Debt Sustainability: Oasis or Mirage, published today by the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), says any lasting solution to the debt overhang hinges as much on political will as on financial rectitude.According to UNCTAD, Africa received some $540 billion in loans between 1970 and 2002. Despite paying back close to $550 billion in principal and interest, it still had a debt stock of $295 billion at the end of 2002.The report argues a robust economic case for a total cancellation of Africa’s debt, saying that low levels of savings and investment – leading to high poverty and adverse social conditions – are among the biggest constraints on growth in low-income African countries.Continued debt servicing by African nations would constitute a nominal reverse transfer of resources to creditors by a group of countries that by all indications could least afford this. To ensure that the continent will be able to reduce poverty by half by 2015, as called for by the MDGs, growth levels will have to at least double to some 7 to 8 per cent annually for the next decade, the financial requirements of which are incompatible with present and projected levels of debt servicing.Even a full debt write-off, however, would only be a first step towards restoring growth and meeting the MDGs. UNCTAD estimates that such a write-off would represent less than half those countries’ resource requirements, with the gap filled by increased official development assistance (ODA) grants as a prelude to Africa increasing the level of domestic savings and investment required for robust and sustainable growth.The report concludes that for any debt relief framework to deliver tangible results, Africa needs to actively pursue policies for prudent debt management, economic diversification and sustained economic growth. Doing so calls for better access to markets, and increased investment in human and physical infrastructure.
At least one dead after three gunmen storm luxury hotel in Pakistan “There are reports of a few people sustaining minor injuries,” the home minister said. Image: Xinhua News Agency/PA Images AT LEAST ONE person has been killed after three gunmen stormed a luxury hotel in the southwestern Pakistani city of Gwadar, the centrepiece of a multi-billion dollar Chinese infrastructure project, the military said.The gunmen shot dead a security guard at the entrance to the five-star Pearl Continental Hotel before entering, the army said. It was the second deadly attack to take place in a prominent Pakistani city this week.“Security forces have cordoned area. Guests safely evacuated. Terrorists encircled by security forces in staircase leading to top floor. Clearance Operation in progress,” a military spokesman said.Earlier, Ziaullah Langu, the home minister for Balochistan province where Gwadar is located, told AFP four gunmen had “opened fire” on the hotel.“There are reports of a few people sustaining minor injuries,” the minister said.Mohammad Aslam, the on-duty officer in Gwadar, said ambulances and rescue officers were waiting at a road leading to the hotel, and that he could hear gunfire but that the operation was coming to an end.“There were no Chinese or Pakistani guests in the hotel,” he said, adding that only staff were present in the building, adding that at least three are believed to be injured.A Baloch separatist group, the Balochistan Liberation Army, claimed responsibility for the attack via Twitter.The Pearl Continental, part of Pakistan’s largest five-star hotel chain, is the only luxury hotel in Gwadar, frequented by foreign and Pakistani business delegations as well as diplomats.It sits isolated on a ridge overlooking the Arabian Sea port city of Gwadar, formerly a small fishing village but now touted by officials as “the next Dubai” thanks to the multi-billion dollar China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).The Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA) is one of a myriad of insurgent groups fighting in Balochistan, which has been rocked by separatist, Islamist and sectarian violence for years.The BLA has targeted Chinese workers in Pakistan multiple times, including during a brazen daylight attack on the Chinese consulate in Karachi which killed four people in November last year. At the time, the BLA branded Beijing “an oppressor”.Foreigners are rarely allowed to travel to the province without seeking special authorisation.Earlier this week a suicide blast claimed by the Pakistani Taliban at one of the country’s oldest and most popular Sufi shrines killed at least 12 people in the eastern city of Lahore.Violence in Pakistan has dropped significantly since the country’s deadliest-ever militant attack, an assault on a school in the northwestern city of Peshawar in 2014 that killed more than 150 people – most of them children.- © AFP 2019 Share4 Tweet Email Short URL https://jrnl.ie/4630426 1 Comment By AFP May 11th 2019, 7:14 PM The bay of Gwadar port, near where the hotel is located in southwest Pakistan’s Gwadar. 19,420 Views The bay of Gwadar port, near where the hotel is located in southwest Pakistan’s Gwadar.

It’s not anything to panic about, but geologists have tracked an interesting cluster of small earthquakes near Mount St. Helens through the month of August.The cluster, which included 3.7, 3.4 and 3.1 magnitude quakes on Aug. 23, started on Aug. 2 with a 3.1 magnitude quake, said Seth Moran, a seismologist with the Cascades Volcano Observatory.“These earthquakes are occurring at about 12 miles northwest of Mount St. Helens at a depth of about 10 miles,” Moran said. “We had (quakes lower than magnitude 3) occurring as often as a couple a day for a few weeks.”The observatory reported about 120 earthquakes in total since the swarm began on Aug. 2.People in Battle Ground reported feeling the 3.7 on Aug. 23, but since then things have tapered off. The last measurable quake was an 0.6 magnitude on Aug. 27, Moran said.The quakes are related to faults in the Earth’s crust and not to the volcano. There are many small fractures in the crust related to plate tectonics and the Cascadia subduction zone, where the Juan de Fuca plate is sliding beneath the North America plate.
Chevrolet ColoradoMaking its debut in the top 10 is the Chevrolet Colorado. Shown here in the tough ZR2 Bison off-road spec, the Chevy Colorado is an excellent truck and one of the two midsize pickups you can get with a diesel engine. Adding to the ZR2’s two-inch lift and front and rear locking differentials, the Bison gets beefier skid plates (trust me, that’s a good thing), steel bumpers and integrated recovery points. Heck, you can even get a snorkel.Base models get a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with a six-speed manual transmission, but a more popular choice is the 3.6-liter V6 gas engine with 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the 2.8-liter diesel pumps out 186 horsepower and a delicious 369 pound-feet of twist and is mated to a six-speed automatic. The Chevy Colorado is built in Wentzville, Missouri. 52 Photos 3 18 Photos 12 Photos Acura MDXMoving up one slot to sixth place on the American Made Index is the non-hybrid variant of the Acura MDX. With its SH-AWD system, the MDX is one of the better handling midsize luxury crossovers, and for 2019 the company gives us the A-Spec treatment with a new front fascia and side skirts, 20-inch wheels, wider exhaust tips, unique gauges, a new steering wheel, carbon fiber trim and various Alcantara interior touches.However, both the standard and A-Spec models get a 3.5-liter V6 engine, rated for 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque going through a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Acura MDX is made in East Liberty, Ohio.

Jeep With high trade tensions looming and increasing talk of tariffs, more and more consumers are looking to buy American. Cars.com has released its annual American Made Index, showcasing companies that use the most American-sourced parts and labor in their vehicles. The results may surprise you.Cars.com analyzed more than 100 US-built vehicles for five key data points: manufacturing location, parts sourcing, US employment, engine sourcing and transmission sourcing. You might think something like the Ford F-150 would top the list, but it drops from its No. 5 spot for 2018 and out of the top 10 completely. Even the first-place holder, the Jeep Cherokee, is a pretty global product. It’s a Jeep, sure, but that brand is part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, an Italian-owned business.Cars.com surveyed 1,000 people and found that half are concerned about automotive import tariffs, with 41% saying they are unsure if tariffs would make them more likely to buy American. Either way, we’re big fans of all the vehicles on this list. These days, buying American doesn’t necessarily mean sticking with a US-based automaker. 2019 GMC Canyon: A fancier Colorado 2019 GMC Sierra Denali review: So close to greatness 68 Photos More From Roadshow Chevrolet 2019 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison: An off-road animal 2019 Acura RDX A-Spec: Sharp handling, sharper looks Comments 26 Photos 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better 2019 Acura MDX adds new features and an A-Spec model Share your voice The 2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV is a balance of power and practicality 79 Photos 2019 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison: A tougher off-roader 69 Photos Chevrolet CorvetteMoving up from the 10th-place slot last year is the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette. While we’ve all been ogling the new mid-engine Corvette, it’s easy to forget what a performance bargain the current-generation ‘Vette is. From the base trim to the Grand Sport to the bonkers ZR1, the Corvette is an American icon.My preference is for the Grand Sport, which strikes a perfect balance between everyday drivability and canyon-carving performance. The 6.2-liter V8 puts out 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. You can get it with a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, but the kicker is the borrowed chassis and aero parts from the beefier Z06. Like I said, perfect balance. The Corvette is made in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Jeep CherokeeKeeping its top-of-the-list placement, the Jeep Cherokee is 2019’s most American-made car. Refreshed for 2019, the compact crossover now features more tech, better cargo space and a slightly tweaked look. It’s available in no fewer the nine trims, including the off-road specific Trailhawk and a fancy-pants Trailhawk Elite.For 2019, the Cherokee gets a new 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine with 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, though naturally aspirated I4 and V6 choices are also available. Regardless of engine, a nine-speed automatic transmission gets the power to the pavement — or dirt as the case may be. The Cherokee is made in Belvidere, Illinois. Honda PilotDropping down to seventh place for 2019 is the Honda Pilot. Like its two-row Passport sibling, the three-row Pilot offers parent-focused technology like Cabin Talk as well as myriad standard driver-assistance features through the Honda Sensing tech suite. Honda’s largest crossover offers up nearly 84 cubic feet of cargo space. Honda’s 3.5-liter V6 engine shows up again, making a serviceable 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Touring and Elite trims get a nine-speed automatic transmission while lower trims have to make do with a six-speed auto. The Honda Pilot is made in Lincoln, Alabama. 10 Photos 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport loves to hustle Honda PassportThe Honda Passport is a new (well, reborn) entry to both the Honda lineup and the American Made Index. This midsize crossover comes to the fray with great driving dynamics and plenty of tech like the standard Honda Sensing suite of active safety features. An available 8-inch touchscreen gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot.Under the hood is the stalwart 3.5-liter V6 producing 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. However unlike the Ridgeline, the Passport sends that power through a nine-speed automatic transmission. Having said that, just like the Ridgeline, this is the only powertrain available. The Honda Passport is built in Lincoln, Alabama. Honda RidgelineAgain keeping the status quo, the Honda Ridgeline maintains third place on the American Made Index. This crossover-that-looks-like-a-truck provides a better ride than a traditional pickup and gets an awesome lockable trunk right in the floor of the bed. And it doesn’t do the truck stuff too badly, either, as it’s able to carry 1,860 pounds of payload and tow 3,500 pounds.The Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 good for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. That is channeled through a six-speed automatic transmission with available all-wheel drive. It’s built in Lincoln, Alabama. General Motors Chevrolet Honda Jeep Acura 2019 Honda Passport: A well-rounded midsize offering Enlarge ImageIt’s definitely a noteworthy vehicle that belongs in a museum. That may change if AVs end up sentient and enslaving humanity, but that’s a problem for down the road. The Henry Ford Even though The Henry Ford Museum might bear the name of the man that brought Ford Motor Company to the masses, that doesn’t mean it’s above acknowledging the achievements of Ford’s competitors.The Henry Ford announced on Tuesday that it had acquired one of Chevrolet’s early Bolt EV self-driving development vehicles. Built on the same Lake Orion line as the regular Bolt EV, the cars are then outfitted with the hardware and software necessary to turn it into an autonomous development vehicle. This includes your usual standard bevy of sensors and emitters like lidar, radar and cameras.”The self-driving vehicle is the most fundamental shift in what a car should be since the Model T turned the automobile into an everyday item,” said Matt Anderson, transportation curator at The Henry Ford, in a statement. “While this first-generation test vehicle was quickly followed by more advanced versions, it made a bold statement that a major auto manufacturer was ready to move quickly on making self-driving cars a reality.”Chevrolet and Cruise Automation, which GM acquired in 2016, are currently working on something even wilder. The Cruise AV is an advanced version of the development car, lacking any driver controls whatsoever — the front seats are for staring off to the horizon, although there’s still an infotainment screen in the middle of the dash. It’s eventually intended to be a dedicated ride-sharing vehicle that can autonomously arrive and depart at a whim. It’s an important one for The Henry Ford, too, because it’s the first AV in its collection. For now, it’s on display next to a 1959 Cadillac El Dorado in the “Driving America” exhibit at the museum. Honda OdysseyThe feature-rich Honda Odyssey minivan also retains its number-two slot from last year’s list. While the 2019 model doesn’t see any changes from last, it’s still a darn good choice for families on the go with reconfigurable seats, Wi-Fi and an excellent rear-seat entertainment system. The Cabin Watch video system lets parents keep an eye on their little darlings without turning around in their seats, while Cabin Talk amplifies their voice so no yelling is required.The Odyssey is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 rated for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Most trims get a nine-speed automatic but the top Touring and Elite trims now use a 10-speed automatic with stop-start technology. The Honda Odyssey is made in Lincoln, Alabama.

Like its MDX counterpart, the RDX is available with the A-Spec styling package.The RDX sports a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine. Output is stated at 273 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, and it’s mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The new RDX is built in East Liberty, Ohio. 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous GMC CanyonIf you’re looking for a slightly fancier version of the Colorado that’s more focused on luxe than dirt, check out the GMC Canyon.

Hyderabad: Talks between the Government and Telangana Aarogyasri Network Hospitals’ Association (TANHA) failed to resolve the issue and the healthcare services under Aarogyasri scheme have decided to continue with their decision of not treating the patients under this scheme. The private and corporate hospitals had stopped extending medical services from Friday morning demanding that pending bills be cleared and government accept their long-pending demands. Also Read – Unidentified assailants killed a person in Saidabad PS limits Advertise With Us State Health Minister E Rajendar and the officials of the Aarogyasri Health Care Trust (AHCT) held day-long deliberations with the representatives of Telangana Aarogyasri Network Hospitals’ Association (TANHA) and requested them to call off the agitation in view of difficulties being faced by the poor patients in the hospitals. The government owes them about Rs 1,200 crore. During the meeting the association demanded that all dues be cleared and that the minister should give assurance that the tariff would be revised. Also Read – Car mechanic held in Hyderabad for killing Class 10 girl in Jadcherla Advertise With Us The association representatives said that since 2007 the rates have not been revised. They were demanding that the rates be doubled in view of increased maintenance of the hospitals and the treatment cost. The managements said they were not ready to call off the stir until their demands are accepted by the government. Speaking to newsmen, Rajendar disputed with the association claim that the government owed Rs 1,200 crore to the hospitals. The total dues pending before the government is Rs 600 crore only. Advertise With Us The minister clarified that the government is taking measures to clear the dues in a phased manner. He appealed to the association to resume healthcare services to the poor. The second round of talks between the government and the association is likely to be held on Saturday as the health minister submitted a report to Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao on the status of the pending dues and the impact of the suspension of services by the network hospitals.

However, he failed with his plan and was arrested soon after the incident took place.Karthikeyan, the accused, had asked for Rs 50 lakh from his employers for personal reasons but they did not respond to his email. Angered, he put his engineering degree to use and assembled a small bomb, with the intention of scaring and blackmailing his employers.Times of India reported that Karthikeyan made the bomb which was set to go off with the help of a mobile app that he downloaded from the internet. However, things did not go according to plan when the bomb didn’t explode but emitted a lot of smoke.As the bomb went off, the security guards at the gates alerted the Chengalpet police who came to investigate the matter. They narrowed down to the culprit by analyzing the CCTV footage and subsequently arrested Karthikeyan from his apartment in Maramalai Nagar in Chennai on Sunday.

Advisory council approves this recommendation to expand @fgbnms. (Some members wanted broader protections for sanctuary, some wanted to delay today’s vote.)

Last year, the administration ordered a review of all national marine sanctuaries and plans to grow them, and required any such plans to account for energy resources that would be impacted. (The Commerce Department said in February it was finalizing that review and would release it “in the near future.”)Still, council member Scott Hickman sounded optimistic ahead of Wednesday’s vote.“Politically, we can get this product across the finish line,” he said. “Anything more, in my eyes and in the folks that I’ve been visiting with, you don’t get across the finish line.”Others on the council had pressed for a broader expansion of the underwater sanctuary. There was also an unsuccessful effort on Wednesday to delay a vote on moving the plan forward, with some council members saying they wanted more time for the public and stakeholders to give input.In a statement, Flower Garden Banks Superintendent George Schmahl said expanding the sanctuary would “strengthen the biological productivity and resilience of marine ecosystems of the Gulf.”

Waters Asks Financial Institutions to Aid Shutdown-Impacted Borrowers January 21, 2019 1,136 Views in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News “President Trump’s shutdown of the federal government is inflicting tremendous harm to millions of Americans,” wrote Maxine Waters, Chairwoman of the House Committee on Financial Services, in her letter to heads of financial services industry trade associations and credit reporting agencies. Demanding a prompt written response from them by no later than January 25, 2019, she asked for specifics on what accommodations institutions and member companies are offering to affected consumers. The letter brought to notice the joint press release issued on January 11, 2019, by five financial regulatory agencies and state regulators, urging institutions to adopt prudent workout arrangements with consumers who may be affected by the ongoing federal government shutdown. The release was issued in response to Waters’ correspondence with the agencies to formulate a statement similar to the one issued during the shutdown in 2013. As the shutdown entered its 28th day on Friday, Waters pointed out that it is being “needlessly prolonged by President Trump.” Under these circumstances, she urged the institutions to take decisions as outlined in the interagency statement, to help any consumer–whether they are a federal employee, federal contractor, or others–who may be affected by the shutdown. Emphasizing the adverse effects of the shutdown, she indicated that consumers are not able to make timely payments on debts such as mortgages, student loans, car loans, business loans, or credit cards. This will also lead to affected employees likely to see a reduction in their credit scores, she noted. “I share the agencies’ view that any affected individual should contact their lenders immediately in the event they are experiencing financial difficulty. However, I believe it would be helpful for your institutions and member companies to engage in proactive outreach to, and provide flexible workout arrangements for, your customers who may be finding it difficult to pay their bills in full and on-time due to the shutdown,” the letter reads. She also encouraged institutions to consider the appropriateness and fairness of reporting adverse information about their customers to consumer reporting agencies. Waters stated that it is in no one’s interest “to punish those who may be enduring financial stress through no fault of their own.”“I appreciate that some of your institutions and member companies have already been announcing accommodations for affected consumers, but it is important that there be a robust effort by all institutions to do what they can to help,” Waters wrote.
