OTTAWA – A new connection in the trading relationship between Canada and the United States will cost $5.7 billion, with one senior official vowing the Gordie Howe bridge will elbow its way through any legal or political challenges —including from President Donald Trump himself.Construction of the long-sought span named for the Saskatchewan-born Howe, who became a hockey legend while playing for the Detroit Red Wings, will begin this fall at Canada’s busiest border crossing and take six years to complete.Getting to Friday’s announcement of the final price tag for the span over the river between Windsor, Ont. and Detroit, has been laden with political potholes that proponents have had to navigate at the state and federal levels.The bridge has also survived multiple legal challenges from the private owner of the nearby Ambassador Bridge, who publicly appealed to Trump this year to revoke a presidential permit Barack Obama granted to greenlight construction.Dwight Duncan, the chairman of the federal agency in charge of the bridge, said proponents have set in place the political infrastructure to ensure the project survives a change in Michigan’s state government or trade disputes between the two countries.“Vice President (Mike) Pence, when he was governor of Indiana, was a huge supporter. A range of Trump’s top supporters in the state of Michigan have urged that he continue on with this project. So I’m confident that regardless of what other issues our two countries are dealing with, this project is going ahead,” Duncan said.“We’re going to get this thing built.”The six-lane, 2.5-kilometre cable-stayed bridge — whose towers will be designed to look like a hockey stick taking a slap shot — won’t open to traffic until the end of 2024. It will have a lifespan of 125 years.About one-quarter of all goods traded annually between Canada and the U.S. passes through the Detroit-Windsor corridor.How much the bridge would cost has steadily increased since the previous Conservative government found a way to bypass American lawmakers and a funding stalemate that threatened to thwart the long-discussed project.The contract unveiled Friday with a private construction consortium largely sets the final price: $3.8 billion to design and build the span, as well as $1.9 billion more to operate and maintain the bridge and its ports of entry on both sides of the border for 30 years.Labour disruptions and additional environmental work are among the risks that could drive up costs, but the construction consortium will have to swallow any increases in labour or materials costs. Federal officials could also withhold payments if construction timelines slip.The major risk for the bridge authority is that the project doesn’t earn enough from user tolls to cover the federal investment, although the authority believes observed increases in commercial truck traffic will continue.The Liberals were told about potential cost increases in the project shortly after coming to office, and former infrastructure minister Amarjeet Sohi ordered the bridge authority to find some cost savings — but officials wouldn’t discuss the details of the review on Friday.Duncan said an outside review suggested the final price would have been more than $6.2 billion if the Canadian government had decided not to partner with a private-sector consortium and foot the entire bill itself.“There is terrific value for money for Canadian taxpayers who are financing this and ultimately for users of the new border crossing who will be paying the tolls that will pay back the Canadian government,” he said.Work to build the bridge will have to account for tricky environmental conditions, such as ground that needs to settle to support the pillars holding up the span.The ports of entry on both sides of the crossing will be among the largest in North America, and will include green space and Indigenous art on the Canadian side.— Follow @jpress on Twitter.
Actor and animal advocate Allison Janney is hosting “Shelter Me: New Beginnings,” the fourth episode of the inspiring national PBS series that celebrates shelter pets with positive and uplifting stories.Premiering in October, this one-hour, emotionally-charged episode focuses on two stories, including an aircraft transport of 128 shelter dogs to loving homes as well as a nationally recognized animal trainer who is implementing a first-of-its-kind doggie play group program in overcrowded city shelters.“I am honored to host ‘Shelter Me’ and bring awareness to the thousands of loving pets in animal shelters across the country that need homes,” said Allison Janney. “I adopted three amazing dogs and they bring so much love and happiness to my life.”The “Shelter Me” series was created by filmmaker Steven Latham who wants to break down the negative perceptions and stigmas of public animal shelters and help people realize that shelter pets make the best pets. “Shelter Me” is presented by Ellen DeGeneres’ pet food company, Halo, Purely for Pets, and together they are committed to the well-being of shelter pets.In the first story of “Shelter Me: New Beginnings,” Aimee Sadler, a nationally recognized animal trainer, teaches shelter staff and volunteers how to get their dogs to interact in play groups. The public shelters in Philadelphia and Baltimore are featured. These play groups allow for shelter dogs to be properly exercised and socialized, resulting in more adoptions.The second story is about a transport of 128 dogs whose lives were saved from Southern California animal shelters. Volunteer pilots from Wings of Rescue flew them to Idaho, where they were all adopted into loving homes.“Shelter Me: New Beginnings” premieres on public television stations on October 5. Please go to ShelterMe.tv for local listings.In addition, singer/songwriter Mindy Smith has partnered with the show to produce “Songs For Shelter Me,” an 11-track compilation album to benefit shelter pets, which includes two of her songs from the new episode and is available October 7.
China, Canada face similar pension challenges: CEO of CPP Investment Board TORONTO – China sees Canada as a valuable source of expertise as both countries grapple with the needs of an aging population that’s increasingly retired, according to the head of the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board.“China faces very similar demographic issues and pension challenges that Canada has faced and continues to face. When you put the demographics side-by-side, there are some striking similarities,” Mark Machin said in a phone interview Monday from Beijing.He said the most important similarity is that each country will have only about 2-1/2 working-age people per retired person by 2046.“That’s the crux of the challenge for pension systems.”As recently as September, the Chief Actuary of Canada’s latest three-year projection said the Canada Pension Plan will remain sustainable at current contribution rates if the CPP Fund managed by Machin’s organization can produce inflation-adjusted rates of return averaging 3.9 per cent over 75 years.As of Dec. 31, the CPP Funds inflation-adjusted rate of return over the past 10 years was 4.8 per cent and about $300 billion of assets around the world — with more than half in North America.While CPP Investment Board has had an office in Hong Kong that looks for suitable deals in China and the surrounding region, Machin said that its new collaboration with Chinese officials has a more general purpose.“I think part of this is making sure that, when we’re investing in markets, we’re not just looking for things that we can get but offering a little bit back — offering a little bit of advice and insights.”Machin was in China’s capital for the launch of a Chinese translation of “Fixing the Future,” a book tracing the political and financial hurdles that were overcome when the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board was created in the 1990s.He anticipates the book — written by a former Globe and Mail reporter under a commission from CPPIB — will be used as a textbook in China to help teach about pension reform.Machin says the translation of the 380-page book was a Chinese initiative that complements a previously announced “pooling of resources” planned by the CPP Investment Board and China’s National Development and Reform Commission under a memorandum of understanding signed in September.The memorandum was one of the agreements signed in Ottawa during an official visit by China’s Premier Li Keqiang.While the CPP Investment Board is designed to be politically independent from all levels of government, Machin said there’s a common interest with the Canadian federal government’s efforts to build economic and trade ties with China.“Those two things are definitely aligned. I wouldn’t say they’re co-ordinated, but they’re aligned.”Follow @DavidPaddon on Twitter.

In its Q2 2018 results, Hecla reports that preparations for the introduction of its Epiroc Mobile Miner 40V, which the miner refers to as a Remote Vein Miner (RVM), expected in late 2019, continues to be a major focus at Lucky Friday silver/lead/zinc mine in Idaho. “The RVM project is proceeding as expected and has the potential to revolutionise how the Lucky Friday is mined, making it a safer and more efficient operation. In addition, limited production and capital improvements continue to be performed by salaried staff.”Production has been limited since March 13, 2017 due to an ongoing strike and now the focus is completing the development necessary to accommodate the RVM in 2019. Research and development spending was $2.3 million for the quarter, with completion of the design and procurement phase of the RVM project. Fabrication of the machine started at the end of the second quarter and is expected to be complete in the fourth quarter of 2018, and a testing phase in Sweden during the first half of 2019 is planned. The machine is expected to be delivered to Lucky Friday in late 2019. Expectations for 2018 research and development spending have declined to $6-$10 million from $12-$16 million, as investment in the RVM project are expected to be capitalised going forwards.Elsewhere, at the Casa Berardi gold mine in Quebec, the automated 985 drift project is working well, with the autonomous haul truck running better and with higher availability than originally anticipated. The second 40 t Sandvik autonomous haul truck is expected to be delivered later this year. Operating two autonomous trucks is expected to result in operating savings of several million dollars a year.

Southampton have reportedly joined the race to sign Jack Wilshere this summer on a free transfer from Arsenal, claims the Daily MirrorThe England international’s contract at the Emirates will expire at the end of the month and it appears increasingly certain that Wilshere will opt to leave his boyhood club after new head coach Unai Emery was unable to give him any guarantees over any regular playing time for next season.The 26-year-old is now considering his next move with the likes of Everton, West Ham United and AC Milan believed to be keeping a close eye on the situation.Merson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.But now Southampton are preparing to enter the race for Wilshere’s signature after missing out on signing James Maddison from Norwich City.Saint’s boss Mark Hughes is keen on adding another central midfielder to his ranks and has listed Wilshere as an ideal signing.Wilshere had previously spent a season on the South coast with Bournemouth in a loan deal during the 2016/17 season and, therefore, may be tempted by the prospect of moving to St Mary’s Stadium.

The American Soybean Association (ASA) expressed strong opposition to an alternative version of the 2008 Farm Bill released today by the leadership of the House Committee on Agriculture and the Bush Administration.”This plan represents unilateral surrender to the short-sighted budget and policy priorities of the Bush Administration rather than a compromise with the farm bill passed by the Committee and the full House last year,” stated ASA President John Hoffman, a soybean farmer from Waterloo, Iowa. “It reverses the limited progress ASA achieved in the House bill to provide more equitable income support to soybean producers, and sufficient funding to make U.S. biodiesel producers competitive with imported biodiesel. Worse yet, the plan makes changes to the loan deficiency payment program that dramatically weaken the income safety net and disadvantage soybean, corn and other feed grains, and wheat farmers compared to current law.”Hoffman continued, “ASA will work with Members of the Senate and House Agriculture Committees to restore these important priorities in Conference on the farm bill in the coming weeks.”Hoffman’s comments followed release of a plan developed after a month-long series of meetings between House Agriculture Committee leaders and U.S. Department of Agriculture and White House officials that cuts overall spending by $12 billion from the earlier House-passed bill and inserts policy positions championed by the Administration that had previously been overwhelming rejected.The cuts include $6.5 billion from the Commodities Title, including $5.2 billion from eliminating direct payments in the ninth year of a 10-year bill, and an unspecified amount from eliminating increases in marketing loan rates and target prices, including for soybeans, sought by ASA and other commodity organizations. Other cuts include $3 billion less in increased food stamp spending and $2.2 billion less in the Energy Title. Funding for the CCC Bioenergy Program, including support for domestic biodiesel production, is reduced from $1.4 billion to $245 million. The plan also would require producers of all commodities, with the exception of cotton and rice, to lose beneficial interest in their crops in order to receive a Marketing Loan Gain or Loan Deficiency Payment (LDP).Responding to the details of the plan, Hoffman said, “It is extremely short-sighted to reverse efforts to provide a more equitable safety net for producers of soybeans, wheat, barley, minor oilseeds, and other crops that have been disadvantaged under the 2002 Farm Bill.””Moreover,” the ASA President said, “requiring producers to sell their crop in order to receive an LDP would end the effectiveness of this program in protecting farm income during periods of low prices. While the income safety net provided by the LDP program is not triggered during times of normal or high prices, gutting the effectiveness of this program during potential future times of low prices represents a major step backward from current law. Further, exempting cotton and rice would distort crop rotations in the South, and discriminate against soybean, corn, and wheat producers under the marketing loan program.”Hoffman concluded, “This plan reflects a failed effort to negotiate an acceptable farm bill directly with the Administration, and its enactment would be far worse for U.S. soybean producers than an extension of the 2002 Farm Bill. The original bill, passed unanimously by the House Committee, had broad support from all regions of the country and all farm organizations. ASA calls for immediate action by House and Senate Conferees to reverse the Administration’s undue and negative influence on the House proposal, and to write a final bill that is equitable and acceptable to production agriculture.”

Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now Like any traditional business venture, inventing involves spending money to make money. Therefore, when contemplating the commercialization (and monetization) of an idea for an invention, think about all opportunities you have to spend your money and then consider whether it makes sense to invest.To make a good decision, have a clear understanding of this fascinating and exciting enterprise. Often, people are extremely passionate about their ideas. Although having passion is a good thing, don’t let it cloud your judgment. I’ve seen many lives disrupted by people going all in on a “sure thing” invention, only to have it not be as successful as they had hoped.To avoid unwanted heartbreak, think about inventing as an investment.Related: Inventing Can Be Fun, and Profitable. Here’s How to Get Started.First of all, investing in an invention is a high-risk, high-reward endeavor. Many factors can be controlled but others not as much — a scenario that can bring your invention plans to a screeching halt. Some factors are hard to detect until it’s too late. A few years ago, I spent a full year developing a sophisticated aquarium filter for a client in a joint venture. Near the end of the project, a larger company with a similar project in the works, purchased the client’s firm. A showdown between our model and theirs was arranged to decide which one would be put into production. I had already ordered the first production samples from the factory, which had been working on the molds for four months. Then the UPS plane carrying my company’s samples burned up on the runway in Atlanta destroying everything. Rather than waiting for more samples, the client chose to cancel my project and wrecked a year’s worth of hard work.Countless other factors can’t be controlled, such as pending patents that you may be unaware of or competitive products just about to hit the market, which can crash your big plans. So no matter how smart you play your cards, be prepared to lose everything when investing in an invention. This potential for total loss raises the risk profile.Related: Eureka — a New Product Idea! Now Ask These 5 Questions.The biggest risk factor for the novice inventor is a lack of knowledge and perspective. To mitigate this risk, form a team or advisory board of experts to help you make decisions wisely.On the flip side, inventing can be a very high-reward investment. When done right, an invention can generate substantial passive income or result in the creation of a new company. I’ve witnessed investments of less than $10,000 turn into annual royalties of more than $100,000, potentially for more than than a decade. The investment is usually complete once the idea is licensed, so the total investment is fixed and yet the money can keep coming in. This can lead to incredible return on investment of as much as 50 times the initial investment over time (much better than the return from traditional stocks or real estate investments).Plus there are numerous intangible benefits to investing in an invention. For example, the initial and imaginative stages of inventing (product designing, creative problem solving, visioneering) are inherently fun to do.Another benefit is that your invention is an exclusive investment opportunity. It’s only available to you (assuming you have an idea worth investing in and the ability to pursue it).This setup gives you, the inventor, unlimited opportunities, governed by your unique abilities, to realize a creation from a truly singular idea that you pursue with your own personal passion.Even if you fail, you’ll know you took a risk and at least tried to bring your ideas to life.Sometimes these benefits make it all to easy to ignore the telltale signs that a particular idea does not represent a good investment opportunity.Should you decide to invest in your idea (or someone else’s), follow these three simple guidelines, which I’ve culled from my personal investment advisor and finance coach, Ruben Rojas:Related: The ‘Aha!’ Moments of Famous Inventors (Infographic)1. The reward must justify the risk. Since inventing is inherently risky, make sure the idea has enough of an upside. Too many people invest heavily in ideas with small potential due to a limited market or difficult-to-navigate industry.2. Never invest more than you can afford to lose. And be prepared to lose it all. Don’t bet the farm on a risky investment. Maybe bet a few acres or a barn but never overextend yourself because despite your confidence, you may bet wrong. If your particular idea is going to cost more than you can spare, either gather other investors or try a simpler idea.3. Be prepared to spend more to make the investment work. Sometimes your first effort doesn’t result in the reaction you’ve hoped for. Evolving the product or adding more value to it can increase your chances at success. If you blow all your cash on the first pass, you’ll have no room to make adjustments later.When inventions work, they can be an extremely lucrative and exciting. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of walking into someone’s house and seeing one of your inventions there or on the shelves of Target or Bed Bath & Beyond.Inventing can make a lot of sense as part of a rational investment strategy if you happen to be someone with bright promising ideas. And as long as you play it smart, the risks can be managed to make the rewards worthwhile.

Interventional radiologists tailor treatment to each patient’s disease. Instead of removing the entire prostate, or freezing the entire prostate or using radiation on the entire prostate, interventional radiologists can find out where the cancer is and just destroy the cancer,” said study author Gary M. Onik, M.D., interventional radiologist and director of the Center for Safer Prostate Cancer Therapy in Orlando, FL. “We’ve reached a tipping point: treating only the tumor instead of the whole prostate gland is a major and profound departure from the current thinking about prostate cancer,” added Dr. Onik. With cryoablation, interventional radiologists insert a probe through the skin, using imaging to guide the needle to the tumor; the probe then circulates extremely cold gas to freeze and destroy the cancerous tissue. This minimally invasive treatment targets only the cancer itself, sparing healthy tissue in and around the prostate gland rather than destroying it, as traditional approaches do, noted the professor at the University of Central Florida. “You can go home on the same day of the procedure, and you can repeat the treatment, if needed, in later years,” said Onik. Additionally, Onik presented results of a 3-D biopsy method that provides superior information on the extent and grade of prostate cancer as opposed to the current standard TRUS biopsy.Calling focal cryoablation a “male lumpectomy” reflects the origins of this approach in the breast-sparing surgery that replaced radical mastectomy as the preferred treatment for breast cancer, said Dr. Onik. Unlike breast lumpectomy, a surgical lumpectomy for prostate cancer is not technically feasible; so to treat just a portion of the prostate, minimally invasive cryoablation is needed. Cryoablation (or cryo or cryotherapy) spares as much as possible of the prostate gland and its neurovascular bundles, limiting the side effects of bladder control problems (incontinence) and erectile dysfunction (impotence) that result from more radical prostate cancer treatments. It also represents an advantage over “watchful waiting,” because all treatment options are preserved. “Any risks are fewer and lesser in intensity than surgery; so if you have the equivalent chance of cancer being cured with far less chance of having any complications, why wouldn’t you choose it?” asked Dr. Onik.”There is no question that we can eradicate prostate cancer (when that cancer has not spread to other parts of the body) by freezing it and that there is a better way to ‘map’ the disease,” said Dr. Onik. According to Dr. Onik, the 3D transperineal biopsy complements the focal cryoablation approach because earlier detection of smaller tumors increases the likelihood that a small tumor can be treated using cryoablation. In his study, Dr. Onik restaged 180 patients who had previously undergone TRUS mapping biopsies who were considering conservative management for their cancer. The results showed that 70 percent of the men would have their management changed by the new information provided by mapping. Through mapping, more than 50 percent of men who were diagnosed with cancer on one side of the prostate gland with traditional TRUS biopsy had undetected cancer on the other side as well, he said. Management of prostate cancer is in great part determined by the Gleason score, a cancer ranking method indicating tumor grade and stage and the extent and location of a patient’s disease. “When we restaged the men, we found that 22 percent of them experienced an increase in their Gleason score – meaning that they had a more aggressive cancer than was originally thought from their original biopsy. The 3D mapping biopsy provided life-saving information,” said Dr. Onik. “This biopsy technique allows us to map the location of the tumor with tremendous precision and has the potential to greatly affect the decisions we make about treating prostate cancer,” Dr. Onik said. “The data are unequivocal. If you’re doing ‘watchful waiting,’ get mapped. If you’re having radiation or hormone therapy or thinking about getting a ‘nerve-sparing’ radical prostatectomy, get mapped. If TRUS doesn’t show all the cancer that’s present, you’re not going to have the proper treatment,” said Onik.With 3D transperineal mapping, a grid placed over the perineum (the area of skin between the rectum and the scrotum) allows an interventional radiologist to accurately map the location of each biopsy core removed. The cores are taken through the skin rather than through the rectum, allowing many more cores to be removed – about 50 compared to 10-12 in a TRUS biopsy. The mapping grid also allows the location of the tumor to be known much more precisely, allowing an interventional radiologist to cryoablate (freeze) only the tumor and not the whole prostate gland.Controversy surrounds the treatment of prostate cancer, which usually grows slowly and initially remains confined to the prostate gland, said Dr. Onik. Growing evidence of overdetection and overtreatment in many men with low-risk tumors has led to a concept in the medical community of “watchful waiting” or observing a man’s disease progression prior to initiating treatment. Many patients, however, feel uncomfortable with this strategy and may proceed to radical or aggressive treatment, said Dr. Onik. “When men must choose between ‘watchful waiting’ and high-morbidity whole-gland treatments (like surgery and radiotherapy), a lumpectomy-type treatment, which has so markedly changed the management of breast cancer for women, is a welcome ‘middle ground’ addition for those with prostate cancer,” said Onik.“Interventional cryoablation for prostate cancer is not experimental. This is a treatment option that doctors should discuss with their patients early on,” emphasized Dr. Onik. Most people don’t realize that you can surgically remove the whole prostate and, in 20 percent of the cases, the cancer can be left (called a positive margin), said Dr. Onik, who works in consultation with urologists.
