Kamals harsh word exposes his real character says Quader

first_imgAL general secretary Obaidul QuaderAwami League general secretary Obaidul Quader on Saturday said Kamal Hossain exposed his ‘real character’ by using ‘old Pakistani word ‘Khamosh’ [shut up] with a newsman, reports UNB.”He [Dr Kamal] couldn’t hide his real character through using the old Pakistani word ‘Khamosh’. Though he talks about principles, his real nature has got exposed to people,” he said.Obaidul Quader, also the road transport and bridges minister, was talking to reporters after visiting Daganbhuiyan road expansion work in the morning.Dr Kamal has proved with his arrogance that he is the proponent of spoiled politics, he said.”BNP and Oikya Front have become desperate seeing the popularity of Boat. So, Kamal turned more reckless than a reckless driver. Now the country is seeing the mass surge of ‘boat’ and the ‘sheaf of paddy’ is nowhere,” he added.Blaming Oikya Front for the deterioration in law and order in the country, Quader said they started their terrorist acts through the attack on police at Paltan and is now creating chaos themselves to draw media’s attention.Local Awami League leaders and activists were present.last_img read more

For 170000 You Can Buy Your Very Own Solar Car

first_img Tesla EV Catches Fire After Colliding With Tow Truck in MoscowToyota’s Electric Vehicle Will Transport 2020 Olympic Athletes, Visitors If you’re shopping for an EV right now, you’ve got a lot of great options. One of the newest is the Lightyear One, which stands out for one big reason. It’s solar powered.Most EVs can recharge their cells while driving thanks to features like regenerative breaking, but Lightyear’s massive solar panels take things to a whole new level.They don’t just cover the roof, either. The hood and the trunk are topped with solar cells as well. In total the Lightyear One sports nearly 54 square feet of cells that produce an extra 12km/hr of range. Overall, the company says that the battery and solar array provide up to 800 km (over 450 miles) of range.That’s the top end estimate, naturally. Even in winter with the heat cranked and the defrosters keeping your view clear Lightyear promises at least 400km at highway speed.Lightyear did a number of things to squeeze out as much range as possible. As with any vehicle design, two keys are aerodynamics and weight. The One’s profile helps it slice through the air.(Photo Credit: Lightyear)Its curb weight has been kept down through the use of high-tech materials, and the One’s battery adds less to the total than some of its plug-in competitors. That’s because it doesn’t have to be as large, what with the solar panels recharging it all the time.Being one of the first people one the planet to own the first mainstream solar car doesn’t come cheap. Material costs are high in the early going, notes Lightyear, which pushes the starting cost of the One to around $170,000.(Photo Credit: Lightyear)That’s around $40,000 more than a top-end Tesla Model S. Whether the bump in sticker price is enough to justify the convenience of never having to plug in, never having to pay for power (you can do both in a pinch, the One does have a charging port), and the price of admission to an exclusive club is up to you.So far, Lightyear has racked up 100 pre-orders.Watch: Elon Musk Has Some Advice About Charging Your Tesla BatteryMore on Geek.com:Nissan’s Newest EV Is an Ice Cream TruckWorld’s First Five-Seater Air Taxi Completes Test FlightBehold: The World’s First Fully Electric Classic Ford Bronco Stay on targetlast_img read more

After 14 years Honduras Cuba sign agreement on territorial waters

first_imgTEGUCIGALPA, Honduras – The governments of Honduras and Cuba on Tuesday signed an agreement outlining territorial waters in the Caribbean, after several other attempts to reach an agreement fell short since talks began 14 years ago.Cuba’s director of consular affairs, Rafael Dausa Céspedes, and the coordinator of the Honduran Committee on Border Sovereignty, Roberto Quiñónez Arita signed the treaty on behalf of their countries.Under the new treaty, both countries defined their Exclusive Economic Zones, where they can exercise the exploitation of resources freely and without interference by other countries.Cuba and Honduras have had several unsuccessful attempts to officially mark their territorial waters since 1998.The two nations restored diplomatic ties in 2002 after having suspended relations in 1961 following the 1959 triumph of the Cuban Revolution led by Fidel Castro.

From the pages of Jim Prevors Perishable Pundit W

first_img From the pages of Jim Prevor’s Perishable PunditWe’ve been fortunate to have the engagement of the largest food retailer in the Netherlands, Albert Heijn, ever since the launch of our Amsterdam Produce Summit event. In the inaugural year, Said Belhassan, who was then the VP Merchandising & Sourcing Fresh at Albert Heijn, joined our Thought-Leader Panel, and last year, Michiel van Zanten, who was then the Senior Sourcing Manager, Strategic Sourcing Fresh for Albert Heijn, filled the chair. This year, we are excited to have the chair filled by Maarten van Hamburg, the General Manager of Albert Heijn’s service provider, Bakker Barendrecht (Ridderkick, The Netherlands), the strategic partner for getting fresh produce through the supply chain and onto the shelves.We asked Mira Slott, Pundit Investigator and Special Projects Editor, to find out what kind of insights Maarten might share at the event:Q: We’re honored you’ll be participating in our distinguished Thought-Leader Panel. It’s great to connect with you before the Summit begins to garner some of your insights for a sneak preview.  I know you’ve been quite busy. We appreciate your committing your time to help the event and the industry.To start, can you tell us about Bakker and your role? There are industry executives who might not be completely familiar with your operation.  Bakker is a kind of company that rarely exists in the US, for instance. How does your relationship work with Ahold? It seems as if  Bakker is a kind of strategic partner with Ahold in managing Albert Heijn’s produce procurement?A: I understand we may be atypical. Essentially, Bakker Barendrecht was founded around 90 years ago in the industry of fruits and vegetables in the Netherlands.  We started off as a wholesaler, and basically about 60 years ago, we started our cooperation with Albert Heijn. This cooperation evolved to delivering the fruits and vegetables to Albert Heijn.  In the 70s, produce was sold via the auctions. Actually, the system is still in place in Europe, and in many places in the world, in order to sell fruits and vegetables to the market. We were at the auctions with Albert Heijn in the 70s, and Albert Heijn was gaining share in the Netherlands, and the size of the business was becoming quite big.So, we took the brave decision together to build a buying/sourcing connection. We went off the auction system, and we built our own direct sourcing with our own growers.  This was about 30 years ago. It evolved in those 30 years to encompass a network of growers. Apples in Charts: Honeycrisp, the queen of the U.S … You might also be interested in Q&A: Hana Group’s Danciger talks foodservice … Q: How are those two-hour deliveries working out?A: Order completeness is a significant consumer issue. Consumers are very unsatisfied when their online order is not complete. It’s one of the biggest dissatisfiers in the consumer experience with online retailers.I order 10 products and one of them is bananas and bananas are not delivered. Lack of order completeness is a major dissatisfier, and that is reflected in consumer loyalty.  It is critical as a retailer you are delivering what you promised.  When out-of-stocks for traditional supermarkets are higher, the consumer is not happy and punishes the retailer. But if the product is not delivered, the consumer is angrier because in store you can pick up alternatives. If you order bananas online and they are not delivered, you won’t order again. It’s simple logic to keep your eye on order completeness.Q: It’s enlightening you bring attention to completeness of order as a major problem. I’ve been speaking to our presenters about different issues with online ordering, and out-of-stocks is an issue. Also, the way different systems handle substitutions. In packaged goods, if consumers order one size, is it acceptable to deliver another? Branding poses similar issues. If a system advertises one brand, is it OK to deliver a different brand?We’ve noted it as an important issue. the Perishable Pundit pointed it out in an introduction to another speaker’s “sneak preview” article, where they were listing Halos, a brand of California Clementines, but delivering  Seald Sweet’s Mandarina’s brand from your sister company, Greenyard, in the US. People have also pointed to challenges in maintaining quality control and sometimes the need for different types of packaging to protect product during deliveries, so it doesn’t get damaged.A: For sure. I focus on three prerequisites on fulfilling the needs of retailers for online retailing.The first point is to have a responsive chain, and that comes with the lead times to fulfill order completeness and fulfill product availability. You need to have one-on-one seamless integration with the retailer in order to do that the right way.The second thing — and I agree with the other speakers — is the quality issue. The strength and the quality of the products should be very high for a few reasons. One reason is the handling of online… it is quite tricky because the product degrades, and delivery to home is difficult to put these kinds of products in the online chain without destroying them. So, packaging is very important, but it’s really the strength of the product and the quality that comes into play. If you order groceries weekly and the quality of product isn’t good for your recipes, you have a big issue because you then have to go to the store.Another reason product quality is of vital importance is you need a good shelf life. If you order weekly, for groceries on a Sunday for delivery on Monday, and a product such as strawberries has gone bad by Thursday or Friday, you have a big issue. So, this is a pressure for online retailing.The third important thing for how Omni-Channel is evolving is you need to have an appropriate model. You need to know the current distribution models and future distribution models for online retailers to build a chain behind them to fulfill their needs and avoid additional costs.You could be dependent in the design of those models on the needs of today, when those needs could be completely different a few years from now.  You need a very good relationship with the retailer to understand its demands, and to create the chain of fruit and veg.For fresh produce to be successful in Omni-Channel retail, you need a fully aligned strategy on all parts of the chain, and you cannot do that independently by yourself.This is what I was reflecting on for Omni-channel retailing and the prerequisites we need to put in place to be successful from a service point of view and appropriation of the food chain.Q: Your insights are most intriguing. I was interested to get your thoughts on another issue: Do you think there is a risk that automation and robotics could take away the personal touch and expertise that’s associated with handling and picking the produce and fulfilling orders?A: That’s a great question. I see it as a phased-in approach. I’m convinced of a robotized approach to picking, which is sensitive enough to handle fresh produce. Let me share with you why I believe this. I was looking two months ago at a pilot robotics program, where robots were picking peppers and even picking strawberries in a greenhouse in the Netherlands. And these robots were sensitive enough not to destroy product. So, if you can pick strawberries with robots in a greenhouse, you can do the same in a warehouse at retail. It’s a matter of time until we are there. It’s a few years ahead of us. We have to be sure we don’t make that transition too fast, because with the current methodologies of picking, it’s still too sensitive. So, if you ask me whether I think it’s a risk because of the quality and picking and handling of products, in the short run yes. In the long run, no.”It would be a pity if we cannot fulfill this promise as a produce industry. If we fail, the willingness of consumers to buy fresh produce in the omni-channel will go very slowly.” USDA authorizes Moroccan raspberry imports … A: It’s the cut fresh fruits and vegetables. We deliver the fresh produce to another company that prepares the convenience products.  We want to be able to manage the quality specifications required for the retailer and push the level up and up through the decades. We want to insure we are creating a low-cost chain by creating a demand-driven model with contract growing and dedicated supply.Q: How do you distribute the produce to Albert Heijn?A: We do this in the Netherlands. We consolidate all products from all over the world and the Dutch produce and we send it to the Albert Heijn warehouses. We ensure the freshness through the responsiveness of that chain, and we distribute the fruit and veg every 45 minutes to each of the five warehouses.Q: To clarify, these warehouses/distribution centers are owned by Albert Heijn?A: Albert Heijn has five distribution centers, so Bakker is collecting all the fruit and veg and, based on the needs of the stores, the orders of the stores, we replenish all products to the five warehouses of Albert Heijn.  So, every day, we send 150 trucks of fresh produce to Albert Heijn and we do that 24/7; it’s a continual operation. We do that through the principle of VMI (Vendor-Managed-Inventory).We are responsible for the stock levels at the Albert Heijn warehouses.Q: How does that work exactly?A: We basically have a direct connection — we call it seamless integration with the Albert Heijn orders. So, we have an online connection to real-time sales. We log in the system and see the real-time sales of strawberries or citrus evolving per second.Q: That’s a true partnership… you’re intricately in sync with Albert Heijn’s produce needs and consumer buying patterns.A: In our 60 years’ experience, we have people who follow the orders and promotions for decades now, which means we can forecast the needs of the retailer Albert Heijn in a very specific way. On the weekend from Saturday to Sunday 4:00 at night, we are looking at the assortment and the checkout data, which is intimately connected to our systems, and we adjust the orders. By doing this in this direct connected way, we are able to create an ultra-short supply chain, because we’re not depending on information from Albert Heijn; we’re not depending on information from a category manager at Albert Heijn, we can do all these things by ourselves. This creates a short chain and great quality because of the freshness.Q:  I wanted to ask you about accelerated innovations in the age of Omni-Channel, and aggressive retail initiatives into robotic automated warehouses for consumer order fulfillment. Ahold Delhaize has been making headlines in the U.S. for partnering to create automated order collection “mini robot supermarkets” adjacent to its U.S. chains, including Stop & Shop. Could you update us on what is happening on this front in The Netherlands? I understand Ahold Delhaize is working with Takeoff (which is also partnering with Albertson’s) to build small robotic warehouses that stack groceries and use robot arms to assemble shopper’s orders to speed up click and collect orders…Is this something you’re involved in?A:  I’ve been discussing this beforehand with Said [Belhassan, who recently was promoted from VP Merchandising & Sourcing Fresh to VP Store Operations at Albert Heijn. Said participated in the Inaugural Thought Leaders Panel at the Amsterdam Produce Show]. I can talk about our operations and certainly be a part of the program in Amsterdam and share my views about that, but it will be difficult for me to speak on behalf of Ahold Delhaize and how they manage this. But I can share with you my perspective, and how we align ourselves, looking at the online developments of grocery retailing.Q: That’s understandable. We can learn much in a broader sense based on your experience and field of expertise.A: There are interesting prerequisites for the produce industry in order to keep up with the system, because there’s a lot of developments of grocery retailers with Omni-Channel, for instance with Peapod, with bol.com… Ahold started some 20 years ago in online retailing for fresh food as well, and we are coordinating with them to identify the whole chain of produce to be sure to fulfill their needs. Here I can share a few insights on the prerequisites of what is necessary that I can openly share. Talking about the automatization of Albert Heijn on the warehousing for their Omni-Channel strategy, that’s a bit difficult for me.What we see happening in Omni-Channel is retailers are evolving their efforts in robotizing and automating their warehouse structure, like Ocado in the UK, Ahold Delhaize… essentially every retailer at the moment, which is quite exciting for parties in the chain.How can we make sure we adapt to these kinds of systems? And here, I can share a few insights with you as we have experience the last 20 years in the online business with Ahold as well.For our part of the supply chain, as a logistics provider, we need to build a far more responsive chain than we’ve ever done. Why is that?  Because demand from online retailing is more volatile than, let’s say, traditional grocery retailing, because it’s “now for now.” The consumer demands the possibility of delivery in two hours. It’s putting a stretch on our chain of products.In the Netherlands, we’re testing a two-hour delivery rate all the time. All these kinds of initiatives create very volatile demand, and this is a challenge for the grocery industry because we like to know what we need to grow and what we need to produce far in advance.center_img Q: What is the scope of your direct sourcing network? Are these both locally and globally based growers? Do you have exclusive contracts with growers? Does this strategy give you more control on quality and efficiencies?A: Our network includes 110 Dutch growers completely dedicated to Albert Heijn, and then 160 companies all over the world in around 50 countries, in which we have decades-long relationships now-a-days.Basically, the thought of it was to steer quality based on the requirements of the retailer. We wanted to create the right availability, not depending on the auction, but created by contract growing. So, we contract for what we need. It’s a demand-driven model instead of push-driven model, which is the case for 95 percent of the world.By doing this, not only can we focus on the quality and the availability needed for the retailer, but as well, we can build a very efficient system with cost transparency, and it’s very cost-effective because it’s so dedicated, there are no additional costs anywhere in the chain.So basically, the three core prerequisites of great quality, the right availability and a low-price level are the reasons for this way of working.So, we’ve been a service-provider for Albert Heijn for 60 years for fruits and vegetables, for the fresh part of the business, not the convenience part, but we supply the convenience partner for Albert Heijn with our products. So, again, there is no additional cost in the chain.Q: When you say convenience, what products does that encompass?”We consolidate all products from all over the world and the Dutch produce and we send it to the Albert Heijn warehouses. We ensure the freshness through the responsiveness of that chain, and we distribute the fruit and veg every 45 minutes to each of the five warehouses.” Copefrut launches brand refresh to continue contri … November 12 , 2018 Q: What are the biggest challenges for the produce industry going forward as this landscape changes?A: For me, the biggest challenge is how do we promise to the consumer the right quality of produce in the Omni-Channel. Remember the majority of retail chains that are now trying Omni-Channel do not have fully integrated supply chains, so they are not adapted for the needs of that particular chain. That creates risks for quality management.It would be a pity if we cannot fulfill this promise as a produce industry. If we fail, the willingness of consumers to buy fresh produce in the omnichannel will go very slowly.It’s actually quite interesting that we’ve seen a great step forward in the Netherlands.  Three years ago, consumer willingness to buy fresh fruits and vegetables online was around 37 percent. Three years later, the willingness of consumers to buy fresh fruits and vegetables online is 50 percent. That’s a major step forward. Still, there is 50 percent to go. And quality fulfillment is one of the biggest challenges.Q: On a personal note, are there things you’re looking to glean from the Amsterdam Summit? Your participation at the conference will be of great value to attendees.A: I was there last year at the Amsterdam event. Looking back, what I found interesting, for example, was a study on Amazon and Whole Foods presented by one of the Cornell University professors. For me, the conference is enriching to gain different views and aligning our views on what the most important things are to focus on.We need the strength of each other with all these kinds of issues, because if consumers are having difficulties with the right produce, it effects the entire supply chain so we need to team up as industry.I’m looking forward personally to engage with retailers and producers, and to share views on this because I’m convinced nobody has found the right answer yet. That is what’s exciting to me. I’m dedicated to finding the right answers together. And that’s what I hope to find at the conference, to engage with different people with different views and different experiences — but all with the responsibility to fulfill consumer needs.There is a battle at the very soul of the industry as to what kind of supply chain will best serve the industry in the future. Greenyard’s Bakker Barendrecht, with its intimate relationship with Albert Heijn, stands as the exemplar of one path. It is the highly aligned supply chain, with deep contracting to ensure not only availability but strict compliance with chain demands for quality, food safety, traceability, sustainably, etc.It is a powerful model, and in many ways, it is more advanced than the traditional produce models.  Thirty years ago, we were writing in Pundit sister publication, PRODUCE BUSINESS, in a piece called At the Auction, about the once great American produce auctions in response to a letter from Jan van Meervald, then the managing director of Dole Europe attacking the auctions for causing low prices that year in Europe.Whether it is auctions, terminal markets, buying from shippers at market prices daily or any other traditional system, the challenge for the aligned supply chain model is that other retailers can prioritize on price.  Although, long term, an aligned supply chain may drive costs out of the business, in produce, items often sell below the cost of production. So, the challenge is: How can the retailer, with a supply chain aligned around all the proper responsibilities, such as food safety, sustainability, traceability, etc., compete with a retailer that just buys what is cheapest?Although the future is still uncertain, this may be even more of a challenge in a digital world. Maybe consumers will align with a retailer they trust and so the aligned supply chain that can produce such trust may be crucial. But what if the future is some automated program that searches the Internet to buy the cheapest banana that day?When Bruce Peterson set up Walmart’s buying system, he tried to square the circle. He would aim to buy via contract about 80% of the chain’s needs. Then if the market price zoomed, he would use merchandising techniques to constrain demand, so Walmart didn’t have to buy more product. If, on the other hand, the market price dropped to way below its contracted price, the merchandising team would make massive displays, move them up front, etc. – thus allowing Walmart to buy a lot of produce and thus average down on its price.There are many ways to handle these issues, and we are fortunate that Maarten van Hamburg,Bakker Barendrecht and the larger Greenyard organization — as well as its customer Albert Heijn and the broader Ahold Delhaize organization — are all willing to share their expertise to help us build a better industry.This is a uniquely important conference. There has been nothing quite like it on the produce calendar in 2018. Our future as an industry depends on understanding the Omni-Channel future and the role of the produce supply chain in making that future work.Please join us:You can register right hereIf you have questions, need help, etc. please don’t hesitate to email us at this email address.We look forward to seeing you in Amsterdam! “When out-of-stocks for traditionals supermarkets are higher, the consumer is not happy and punishes the retailer.

IMF official says growth not enough to reduce NPLs Updated

first_imgThe recovery of the Cypriot economy, which is forecast to expand by four per cent this year, has failed to produce the expected drop in delinquent loans, an International Monetary Fund (IMF) official said, the Cyprus News Agency (CNA) reported on Thursday.“Clearly, there is a strong growth, but this has not led to the decrease in non-performing loans one would expect which certainly is reflected in borrowers’ bad discipline,” CNA cited the IMF’s resident representative in Cyprus Vincenzo Guzzo as saying. His views were echoed by George Syrichas, one of the Central Bank of Cyprus’s executive directors, who said that the drop by €6bn in bad loans since 2014 to below €22bn, was still now enough as the economy grows.Guzzo, who was speaking at an event in Nicosia on Thursday, said that the practice of strategic default is related to two factors; the long and ineffective procedures required to resolve commercial disputes in Cypriot courts and the notion that there is a protective blanket for primary homes.To enforce a contract takes up to 1,200 days on the island Guzzo said, citing World Bank data. Foreclosing a collateral asset takes 10 years, the longest period in the European Union.Cyprus modernised its foreclosure and insolvency framework as part of its cash-for-reforms agreement with the IMF, the European Commission and the European Central bank, completed in March last year. Still, the unpopular foreclosure law has been rendered toothless and the Central Bank of Cyprus has repeatedly asked for it to be improved. The participation of Cypriot politicians in demonstrations against foreclosures and auctions shows that there is little hope chance of this happening.“The weak (contract) enforcement keeps the bad repayment discipline as the prevailing strategy for many borrowers,” he added.Non-performing loans in the Cypriot banking system, which almost five years ago experienced its worse crisis, account for 45 per cent of total loans and are considered the most significant risk for Cyprus’s economic recovery.Bank of Cyprus, the island’s largest bank, which was recapitalised with depositors’ funds in 2013, had to increase its provisions for loan impairments in August by €500 million, which cut into its capital buffers. Hellenic Bank, the island’s third largest lender, also had to announce €50m in additional provisions this year.The IMF official said that Cyprus requires an ambitious strategy to both reduce non-performing loans and the high indebtedness of the private sector, which stood at 265 per cent of economic output at the first quarter of the year.Central banker Syrichas said that a number of initiatives to reduce the non-performing loans in the system is being discussed without providing details, according to the CNA.The Cypriot analyst of the UK’s bank Standard Chartered Marios Maratheftis said that data on consumption confirm the assumption that borrowers are not paying back their debt, also according to the CNA. This practice he said, changed after 2013.According to Cystat said, private consumption dropped 0.7 per cent to €12.6bn in 2016 compared to 2012 against a drop of nominal gross domestic product (GDP) of 1.7 per cent in the same period.“If Cypriot stopped shopping, they could repay their debt,” he was cited as saying.While the island’s recovery reflected in the quick lifting of capital controls, merely two years after their introduction in 2013, whereas it took Iceland nine years to do so, the Eastern Mediterranean island needs to reconsider it its economic model founded on consumption, real estate and capital inflows from abroad reflected in a current account deficit which in 2008 widened to 13 per cent of GDP.Innovation, he said, will help the island’s transit from a crisis management model to sustainable growth.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoYahoo SearchThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.

Carletta saidIt’s unclear if the remainder of February will be colder or warmer than normal according to the weather service’s Climate Prediction Center March is slated to be colder than normal the center said After much deliberation on the CBN’s proposed introduction of N5ooo note the Senate yesterday warned Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi to as a matter of urgency stop his plans with the higher denomination The Chairman Senate Committee on Banking Insurance and other Financial Institutions Senator Bassey Edet Otu said that it had become imperative for Senate to put a halt to the new CBN arrangement because a project of this kind required parliamentary approval adding that the upper legislative chamber was never briefed prior to the announcement of the soon-to-be introduced note “As a committee we should do our work This morning there is a burning issue that is going on in our country and there is need for us as a committee to comment on this topical issue I am the chairman of the Senate Committee on Banking Currency and other financial institutions “We have also read in the papers just like you about the currency restructuring that the CBN embarked on I believe that a project of this nature requires parliamentary approval because there are numerous and fiscal implications on the entire economy” Senator Otu said The CBN governor had on Thursday last week announced the introduction of a new currency series where the existing denominations of N50 N100 N200 N500 and N1000 will be redesigned and a new note of N5000 introduced According to Sanusi the front face of the new highest denomination will be adorned with the pictures of three women activists – late Margaret Ekpo Funmilayo Kuti and Hajiya Gambo Sawaba while the back side would have the National Assembly structure Speaking further Senator Otu warned the CBN to be very careful in taking some decisions that would worsen the nation’s economy and send wrong signal that Nigeria’s currency was valueless He stressed that the country did not deserve this policy since the nation was not in a major crisis According to him “this type of action is only taken where there is a major crisis and the CBN must be very careful in order not to send a wrong signal or message to households domestic sector and even the external ones that the Nigerian currency is valueless which I believe it is definitely not and that for every unit of value they need to carry a large quantity of cash “The CBN in 2008 and 2009 came up with a proposal to re-denominate the currency that was even to take off the zeroes This was just 2008 and 2009 and here we are in 2012 we are seeing a kind of policy somersault even though we understand the dynamics of the sector very well I believe that we have to be well briefed on this “Also in 2005 the CBN undertook a major currency restructuring which ran into billions of Naira “Till date a proper value has not been done to know its costs to the Nigerian tax payers and the extent of the benefits and in that 2005 coinage I think it did not work at all because both the goldsmiths and the blacksmiths converted the coins to moulding bangles earrings etc “So we believe that the coinage works very well where there is infrastructure to take it like a half probably like a parking where you go and put it etc We have not developed that real basic infrastructure and those coins most of them are nowhere really to be found “The CBN will have to prove that the policy is not a clear contradiction or at variance with cashless society which they are even yet to justify and whether this is the popular economic way to go We are asking and we are sending a letter to them to stop all further actions on this until the senate of the Federal Republic is properly briefed” Asked if the CBN informed the Senate prior to the decision Senator Otu said: “Well we have not been properly briefed yet so I would not know We do not know the reason for it even though at the moment we do know that inflation is a problem but I don’t think that they have used all the mechanisms to tackle it and it is not really out of hands “There has not been any meeting with the CBN yet This is a major policy issue and there is no way this kind of thing can go on without us knowing everything about the details in order to know how it will affect the people of Nigeria” On what section of the constitution the Senate was relying on he said: “We are not really going to rely on laws per se what we are trying to do here is what is best for the Nigerian people The Senate is not really against the independence of the CBN but what we want in place is proper check and that there should be checks and balances in all these things that we do “So I believe that at some point we will be able to sit down together and look at the merits and demerits but till date we do not know anything about it and we do not know what the people stand to gain and until that is properly put through we say everything about it must stop” Unpredictable US President-elect Donald Trump again shocked the international relations establishment when he talked with Taiwan leader Tsai Ing-wen on the phone; the call was brought to the limelight by the Financial Times last Friday The conversation was first reported to be initiated by pro-Taiwan staff in Trumps transition team then was said to be initiated by Tsai as claimed (or exclaimed) in Trumps ensuing tweets The President of Taiwan CALLED ME today to wish me congratulations on winning the Presidency Thank you Donald J Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 3 2016 Whoever made the first move the call broke with 37 years of China-US diplomatic protocol that US accepts and respects "One China" policy No US President or President-elect has ever called a Taiwanese leader in recent decades News media in the US and the rest of the world followed with breaking news and in-depth analysis deeply perplexed by the sudden call while speculating on a possible furious reaction from China and a possible diversion in China policy from US But the translation of Chinas eventual response may have confused matters further Chinas response While any change of US foreign policy during Trumps presidency may be vague and unpredictable Chinas reaction can be less unpredictable The New York Times Beijing correspondent Chris Buckley while awaiting an official response from China posted on Twitter: A logical response from China would be to blame Tsai for the call punishing Taiwan avoiding cornering Trump even before he’s in office Chris Buckley 储百亮 (@ChuBailiang) December 3 2016 And so China did Chinas Foreign Minister Wang Yi simply offered a brief but very Chinese comment in an interview with Hong Kong-based Phoenix TV describing the call as Taiwans "xiao dong zuo" and affirming that the "One China" policy will not change A signal for diversion in China policy A personal business interest move Or simply being too unrestrained The Western media tried hard to decipher Trumps real intention behind the call But here I want to focus on how English-language media translated and reported the subtle phrase from Wang Yi Little trick "Little trick" or xiao dong zuo in Chinese means dishonest or improper behaviour in a hidden stealthy fashion often carrying malicious intention Mao was reported to have blamed his political opponents or allies whom he saw as a threat (Lin Biao Gao Gang to name a few both of whom were later purged) for "xiao dong zuo" on several occasions In gaming parlance the opposite of "xiao dong zuo" is playing cards on the table In the case of Trump-Tsai call Wang Yi was smart to use this very Chinese saying to convey Beijings stern yet ambiguous stance Blaming Taiwan for the call and reiterating the "One China" policy is forceful But Wang Yi stayed ambiguous as to how angry China is and what action it would take Given the fact that Trump has not assumed office yet it was wise of Beijing to avoid harsher comment and target Taipei The ambiguity gives Beijing more flexibility in the future When translating Chinas official response into English Chinas state news agency Xinhua used "little trick" in its English language reports while Chinas state broadcaster CCTV and the state-run English-language newspaper China Daily used another version: "petty action" which is actually the closest literal translation of "xiao dong zuo" as xiao means petty whereas "dong zuo" is action in its most literal meaning But compared with "little trick" calling something a "petty action" downplays the intention of the accused and the anger of the accuser Many English-language news organisations including the Financial Times the New York Times Reuters the Washington Post picked up the CCTV version On the other hand the Xinhua version of "little trick" was cited in the Wall Street Journal the Los Angeles Times The Guardian the BBC NPR the Telegraph and Quartz Other media have their own understanding of "xiao dong zuo" CNN had its translation as "a shenanigan"; and the Singaporean Straits Times put "petty gambit" in their report In both cases Chinas response is not as downplayed On Twitter China correspondents seem to be scratching their heads over a better translation This is interesting Anyone else want to weigh in on translation of xiao dong zuo and Wang’s meaning here https://tco/F3HbuyhWjp Emily Rauhala (@emilyrauhala) December 3 2016 It is unclear why certain outlets chose the downplayed version But what is clear is that xiao dong zuo translated into either "petty action" "little trick" or "shenanigan" does convey quite different signal as to Chinas attitude If "xiao dong zuo" were understood as "little trick" rather than "petty action" one would expect a formal stern complaint from China to ensue which it did At least Taipei speaking the same language has no difficulty in getting what Beijing was hinting at Lost in translation Mistranslation by the media or translation lost in cultural difference is not a new feature of delicate international relations In 2006 CNN reported that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Iran had a right to "use nuclear weapons" when in fact what the Iranian president meant was "nuclear energy" Though the "petty action" or "little trick" difference may not be as grave as that between "nuclear weapon" and "nuclear energy" in a diplomatic context you can never be too careful in picking the most accurate interpretation of a diplomatic statement At this stage it might be hard to convincingly offer any solid interpretation about the intent of this unprecedented Trump-Tsai call But the implications are significant judged from any side While China is wrestling to make sense of the call the world is trying no less hard to make sense of Chinas response The sweeping coverage of international media outlets tells a story of a global order where no one would like to see an infuriated China especially with a Trump leading the US A proper understanding of each sides response demands more focus on a contextual translation rather than a literal one from the media Yuan Zeng is a PhD candidate in
