Whats in the Amazon box Maybe a real 7foot Christmas tree

first_imgNEW YORK, N.Y. – Watch out for the 7-foot box on the doorstep. Amazon plans to sell and ship fresh, full-size Christmas trees this year.But a live tree is no paperback book. Amazon says the Christmas trees, including Douglas firs and Norfolk Island pines, will be bound and shipped without water in the usual sort of box. Amazon said they’ll be sent within 10 days of being cut down, possibly even sooner, and should survive the shipping just fine.Amazon.com said the trees, wreaths and garlands will go on sale in November. Some will qualify for Prime free shipping, and Amazon will offer pre-orders so shoppers can choose a delivery date.The company sold trees shorter than 3 feet last year, and some other merchants sold bigger ones using its platform as a marketplace. But this is the first year Amazon is offering the larger trees itself.“Given the popularity among customers, we increased the assortment,” the company said.A 7-foot Fraser fir from a North Carolina farm will cost $115, according to an Amazon holiday preview book. Also listed are a $50 wreath and a $25 red-leafed plant with a decorative candy cane speared into the soil.Will people buy a Christmas tree sight unseen? Tim O’Connor, the executive director of the National Christmas Tree Association, said picking out a tree and hauling it back home is part of the fun for families. The association estimates that only about 1 to 2 per cent of the 27 million real Christmas trees purchased last year were bought online, mostly from grower’s own sites. “It’s so small, it’s almost undetectable,” O’Connor said.But Amazon has a history of shaking up shopping habits. It changed how people buy books, diapers and many other goods. It recently expanded the selection of live plants it sells, including potted succulents and orchids._____Contact Joseph Pisani at http://twitter.com/josephpisanilast_img read more

BJP inducts 2 MGP MLAs to save its govt in Goa

first_imgPanaji: The Goa Forward Party (GFP), a partner in the state government, has expressed fear about creation of “suspicion among partners” after two MGP MLAs broke away and joined the BJP. The GFP has three MLAs in the 40-member Goa Assembly and is supporting Chief Minister Pramod Sawant’s government.”If this (defection from coalition partners) continues, then we will lose sympathy and it will create suspicion among coalition partners. Such incidents in future will result in lack of public goodwill,” GFP president Vijai Sardesai, also deputy CM of the coastal state, said. Putting the ball in CM Sawant’s court, Sardesai asserted, “The CM heads this (government) and he knows the contours of his alliance. I think he will very soon clarify on the future political road map of this coalition government,” said Sardesai.last_img read more

Top UN peacekeeping official calls for professional core for field operations

“It is time for us to acknowledge that peacekeeping is a flagship of the UN Organization and as such requires a sustained and comprehensive approach,” Under-Secretary-General Jean Marie Guéhenno told a special committee of the General Assembly, noting that at the end of 2005 there were 17 peacekeeping operations with over 86,000 personnel.He appealed to Member States for “an institutionalized, professional, and responsive UN peacekeeping capacity as a core and integrated function of this organization.”The elements that are essential to such an approach, he said, include “well-trained, effective and responsible career personnel, sufficient guidance and resources, and a responsive, transparent structure.”That structure should, in addition, cooperate efficiently “with a whole range of peacekeeping partners to successfully provide security and support to post-conflict countries,” he said.In describing such reformed peacekeeping operations, Mr. Guéhenno spoke of the need to create a culture of zero tolerance and zero impunity in confronting fraud and mismanagement.He also stressed the importance of linking peacekeeping with economic development for sustained peace, a key outcome of the 2005 World Summit. “How sustainable is the security UN peacekeepers bring, if the youths we disarm and demobilize are not quickly provided with alternative means to earn their livelihood?” he asked.Support to African regional peacekeeping, particularly that of the African Union, is another crucial element, he said. It is also essential to follow through on initiatives to swiftly deploy peacekeeping troops and police, and to address sexual exploitation and abuse.Mr. Guéhenno acknowledged – given the current surge in peacekeeping responsibilities – that the reform agenda he outlined could not be accomplished in one year, but only through setting specific targets each year for five years, as recommended by Secretary-General Kofi Annan.“This pragmatic, steady approach is the only way in which we can maintain our operational capability and focus while, at the same time, strengthening our capacity for effective action,” he said. read more

1 year after encampment began Occupy Wall Street is in disarray spirit

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email 1 year after encampment began, Occupy Wall Street is in disarray; spirit of revolt lives on by News Staff Posted Sep 17, 2012 3:04 am MDT NEW YORK, N.Y. – Occupy Wall Street began to disintegrate in rapid fashion last winter, when the weekly meetings in New York City devolved into a spectacle of fistfights and vicious arguments.Punches were thrown and objects were hurled at moderators’ heads. Protesters accused each other of being patriarchal and racist and domineering. Nobody could agree on anything and nobody was in charge. The moderators went on strike and refused to show up, followed in quick succession by the people who kept meeting minutes. And then the meetings stopped altogether.In the city where the movement was born, Occupy was falling apart.“We weren’t talking about real things at that point,” says Pete Dutro, a tattoo artist who used to manage Occupy’s finances but became disillusioned by the infighting and walked away months ago. “We were talking about each other.”The trouble with Occupy Wall Street, a year after it bloomed in a granite park in lower Manhattan and spread across the globe, is that nobody really knows what it is anymore. To say whether Occupy was a success or a failure depends on how you define it.Occupy is a network. Occupy is a metaphor. Occupy is still alive. Occupy is dead. Occupy is the spirit of revolution, a lost cause, a dream deferred.“I would say that Occupy today is a brand that represents movements for social and economic justice,” says Jason Amadi, a 28-year-old protester who now lives in Philadelphia. “And that many people are using this brand for the quest of bettering this world.”On Monday, protesters will converge near the New York Stock Exchange to celebrate Occupy’s anniversary, marking the day they began camping out in Zuccotti Park. Marches and rallies in more than 30 cities around the world will commemorate the day.About 300 people observing the anniversary marched Saturday. At least a dozen were arrested, mostly on charges of disorderly conduct, police said.But the movement is now a shadow of its mighty infancy, when a group of young people harnessed the power of a disillusioned nation and took to the streets chanting about corporate greed and inequality.Back then it was a rallying cry, a force to be reckoned with. But as the encampments were broken up and protesters lost a gathering place, Occupy in turn lost its ability to organize.The movement had grown too large too quickly. Without leaders or specific demands, what started as a protest against income inequality turned into an amorphous protest against everything wrong with the world.“We were there to occupy Wall Street,” Dutro says. “Not to talk about every social ill that we have.”The community that took shape in Zuccotti Park still exists, albeit in a far less cohesive form. Occupiers mostly keep in touch online through a smattering of websites and social networks. There are occasional conference calls and Occupy-affiliated newsletters. Meetings are generally only convened to organize around specific events, like the much-hyped May Day event that ultimately fizzled last spring.The movement’s remaining $85,000 in assets were frozen, though fundraising continues.“The meetings kind of collapsed under their own weight,” explains Marisa Holmes, a 26-year-old protester among the core organizers who helped Occupy rise up last fall. “They became overly concerned with financial decisions. They became bureaucratic.”In other words, they became a combustible microcosm of the society that Occupiers had decided to abandon — a new, equally flawed society with its own set of miniature hierarchies and toxic relationships. Even before the ouster at Zuccotti Park, the movement had been plagued with noise and sanitary problems, an inability to make decisions and a widening rift between the park’s full-time residents and the movement’s power players, most of whom no longer lived in the park.“We’ve always said that we want a new society,” Holmes says. “We’re not asking anything of Wall Street. We don’t expect anything in return.”Occupy organizers in other U.S. cities have also scattered to the winds in recent months. In Oakland, a metal fence surrounds the City Hall lawn that was the hub of protesters’ infamous tear-gassed, riotous clashes with police. The encampment is gone, as are the thousands who ventured west to help repeatedly shut down one of the nation’s largest ports.“I don’t think Occupy itself has an enormous future,” says Dr. Mark Naison, a professor at Fordham University in New York City. “I think that movements energized by Occupy have an enormous future.”Across the nation, there have been protests organized in the name of ending foreclosure, racial inequality, stop and frisk, debt: You name it, Occupy has claimed it. Occupy the Bronx. Occupy the Department of Education. Occupy the Hood. Occupy the Hamptons.Protesters opposing everything from liquor sales in Whiteclay, Neb., to illegal immigration in Birmingham, Ala., have used Occupy as a weapon to fight for their own causes. In Russia, opposition activists protesting President Vladimir Putin’s re-election to a third term have held a series of Occupy-style protests. Young “indignados” in Spain are joining unions and public servants to rally against higher taxes and cuts to public education and health care.“All around the world, that youthful spirit of revolt is alive and well,” says Kalle Lasn, co-founder of Adbusters, the Canadian magazine that helped ignite the movement.In New York, groups of friends who call themselves “affinity groups” still gather at each other’s apartments for dinner to talk about the future of Occupy. A few weeks ago, about 50 Occupiers gathered in a basement near Union Square to plan the anniversary.There were the usual flare-ups, with people speaking out of order and heckling the moderators. The group could not agree on whether to allow a journalist to take photographs. An older man hijacked the meeting for nearly 15 minutes with a long-winded rant about the NYPD’s stop-and-frisk tactics.A document called “The Community Agreement of Occupy Wall Street” was distributed that, among other outdated encampment-era rules, exhorted Occupiers not to touch each other’s personal belongings and laid out rules about sleeping arrangements.It is this sort of inward-facing thinking — the focus on Occupiers, not the world they’re trying to remake — that saddens ex-protesters like Dutro, who wanted to stay focused on taking down Wall Street.Hanging in the entryway to his Brooklyn apartment, like a relic of the past, is the first poster he ever brought down to Zuccotti Park. In black and gold lettering, painted on a piece of cardboard, the sign says: “Nobody got rich on their own. Wall St. thinks U-R-A-SUCKER.”He keeps it there as a reminder of what Occupy is really fighting for. Because despite his many frustrations, Dutro hasn’t been able to stamp the Occupy anger out of his soul. Not yet.On Sept. 17, he’ll be down at Liberty Square again. And he’ll be waiting, like the rest of the world, to see what happens next.“We came into the park and had this really magical experience,” he says. “It was a big conversation. It was where we all got to realize: ‘I’m not alone.’” read more

Archbishop faces questions over Amazon and zerohours hypocrisy as Church refuses to

The Rev Peter Ould, a priest from Canterbury, said: “The Church of England has used its shareholdings to apply public pressure already, for example helping to bring shareholder motions to the Rio Tinto AGM.”It would be nice to have more transparency about how they are working with companies like Amazon, but sometimes private influence can be more effective than public grandstanding.”It was also revealed on Friday that several Church of England cathedrals have advertised zero-hours contract roles, which the Archbishop has also condemned. Conservative MP Ben Bradley called his stance “hypocritical”. Last month Bath Abbey issued an advert for a tower tour guide on one of the contracts. The Rev Pete Hobson, a priest who represents faith workers at the Unite union, said he believed the Archbishop was acting deliberately to draw attention to the issue within his own church. The Archbishop of Canterbury faces questions within the church over Amazon and zero-hours “hypocrisy”, as it refused to reveal its full portfolio. On Friday the Church of England declined to provide any detail on the Church Commissioners’ investments beyond the top 20 holdings published in its most recent annual report. Disclosed investments, which make up 6.7 per cent of the Church’s total investable assets, include Amazon, Alphabet, which is Google’s parent company, and HSBC, which have all been embroiled in scandals over tax avoidance. Earlier this week the Archbishop of Canterbury named Amazon in a speech to the Trades Union Congress as among companies which “get away with paying almost nothing in tax” and “leached off the taxpayer”. The Church said it would retain the investments because “it is more effective to be in the room with these companies seeking change as an active shareholder than speaking from the side-lines”. Amazon has defended its tax policy, saying: “We pay all taxes required in the UK and every country where we operate.“Amazon has created more than 25,000 good jobs with good pay and benefits across Britain and we are proud of the work they do on behalf of customers every day.” The Church declined to provide detail of the action it was taking to implement change within the companies, or of any plans it had to do so. Clergy and bishops suggested that more information should be forthcoming, with Dr Helen-Ann Hartley, bishop of Ripon, Tweeting: “I think it would be good to hear how this challenge is making an impact”.  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Southern Metros Dominate Top Performing Markets

first_img While housing affordability has taken a bit of a hit nationwide as of late, particularly in the West, the South has made some impressive gains recently, creating a “new dynamic for the national spread in regional growth,” according to the Clear Capital November 2016 Home Data Index (HDI) market report.The South and Midwest experienced over-the-quarter home price growth rates of 0.9 percent and 1.0 percent, respectively. The West still outpaced the rest of the nation in the third quarter with 1.1 percent price growth over-the-quarter, but at the same time, that number represented a decline from October’s numbers, which signals that growth may be slowing in that region.Nationwide, home prices grew by 0.9 percent over-the-quarter in Q3 and by 5.5 percent over-the-year, according to Clear Capital.Eight of the top 15 performing markets in November were metros located in the South, according to Clear Capital. The top metro for growth was Memphis, which posted a 2.6 percent price increase over-the-quarter in Q3.“Elsewhere in the nation, quarterly growth appears to be holding relatively steady or even slowing down as fall sales data begins to come in,” Clear Capital reported.The median home price in the South has risen by 5.7 percent since last year, but the median price per square foot in the top performing markets in the South is well below the national benchmark, according to Clear Capital. As a whole region, the South averages $106 per square foot compared to the national average of $135.“As the Western region’s long standing housing price growth dominance is beginning to fade, the South is the clear frontrunner as we begin to look forward to 2017 for top performing markets,” said Alex Villacorta, Ph.D., Vice President of Research and Analytics at Clear Capital. “The region hosts several of the nation’s top-performing and most talked about metropolitan markets like Dallas, Nashville, Miami, and others. Combined with its relatively low cost of living, the region appears to be gaining popularity among home buyers, signaling a new opportunity for investors and traditional homebuyers alike as affordability remains an issue in many other markets, namely those in the West and Northeastern regions.” in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News November 14, 2016 618 Views Sharecenter_img Home Price Appreciation Housing Market South 2016-11-14 Seth Welborn Southern Metros Dominate Top Performing Marketslast_img read more

It’ll be good to see them all, but it’s going to be odd. It’s not like we’re getting back together.”At this point he isn’t even sure if they’ll perform as a temporarily reunited group on the Junos, but many longtime fans will certainly anticipate the possibility.Those details must be ironed out in the coming weeks, Robertson explained, but at this point the Barenaked Ladies plan to stand united only for their induction, not to play music.“It’s a delicate thing to address,” he said.“At the end of the day we’re all just looking forward to celebrating this achievement together. We’re going to figure out how to do that in a way that’s fun for everybody and (which) makes sense.”Page left the band that he formed with Robertson in high school after a spate of problems, including his arrest for possession of marijuana and cocaine in 2008 and what he’s since described as some disagreements with other members about their direction.It left Barenaked Ladies without one of its most prominent members — one who shared vocals on the chart-topping single “One Week,” and songwriting credits on popular songs like “If I Had $1,000,000” and “Pinch Me.”The band continued with Robertson taking lead vocals, though he acknowledges for a short period the band was concerned about the shakeup. They’ve since recorded five albums and have toured numerous times, most recently finishing a 40-date Canadian tour last year.While neither of the old friends speaks much, Page said he and Robertson texted back and forth when they learned about their pending induction.“(We were) congratulating each other and reminiscing a bit,” he said.“It was nice to connect.”Robertson said while he feels a certain sense of nostalgia for the past, it’s something he’s mostly let go as he focuses on the future.“What I’m most excited about is the way we’re moving forward,” he said.“We’ve got a lot more to say.”The Juno Awards will be broadcast this year from Vancouver’s Rogers Arena.— Follow @dfriend on Twitter.Note to readers: This is a corrected story.
