He says Barclays’ forecast for the WCS-WTI differential for this year has therefore been raised to US$24.60 per barrel from US$18.40 per barrel – it was at about US$21.70 on Monday, down from peaks of nearly US$30 in February.Both Canadian Pacific and Canadian National railways have said they will demand long-term take-or-pay contracts and higher rates to add trains and crew members to move oil because they fear the business will evaporate once new export pipelines come on stream.The International Energy Agency said earlier this month it expects crude-by-rail shipments to more than double over the next two years as a lack of pipeline capacity forces Canadian producers to look to alternatives.The Paris-based IEA forecasts crude-by-rail exports will grow from 150,000 barrels a day in late 2017 to 250,000 barrels a day this year and then to 390,000 barrels a day in 2019. CALGARY, A.B. — An oil industry analyst says discounts being paid for western Canadian oilsands crude will remain at high levels because railroads are cranking up their crude-by-rail rates in return for providing railcars.In a report, Barclays analyst Paul Cheng says he is increasing by US$4.50 per barrel his forecast for the difference between Western Canadian Select oilsands blend and U.S. benchmark West Texas Intermediate from 2019 to 2022, when new pipelines are expected to come on stream to relieve transportation constraints.He says industry insiders are reporting that negotiations with rail operators have driven the expected cost of delivering a barrel of WCS by rail from Alberta to the U.S. Gulf Coast up to about US$20.
Rabat – Moroccan Minister Delegate for the National Defense Abdellatif Loudiyi has received Spanish Secretary of State for Defense Angel Olivares Ramirez, who arrived in Morocco for a two-day working trip.Ramirez is leading a large Spanish delegation, according to Maghreb Arab Press (MAP).The officials held talks about defense cooperation.The officials also discussed the “satisfactory results achieved in the fight against terrorism and the management of the migration crisis.” Spain participated in the international African Lion military exercise, which took place in Morocco from March 16 to April 5 in several southern provinces, including Ben Guerir near Marrakech.The event, attended by military officials from the US and Canada, featured training and joint exercises to counter extremism and terror attacks.Loudiyi and Ramirez agreed on the presence of promising prospects for “bilateral and regional cooperation in the field of defense industry.”In addition to counter-terrorism, Morocco and Spain also cooperate on migration issues.Recently, Spanish news outlet El Diario quoted the Spanish navy saying the Spanish government would further increase its cooperation with its Moroccan counterpart against undocumented migration.The news outlet added that Spain will offer rescue training and boats to Morocco to stop undocumented migrants.Recently, Spain has expressed eminent support for the Moroccan government and has been Rabat’s steadfast supporter at the European Union. The partnership strengthened after the recent visit of Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez to Morocco in November 2018.Promises to strengthen the cooperation increased after the visit of the Spanish monarch, King Felipe VI, and his wife, Queen Letizia, to Morocco in mid-February 2019.
“What the ongoing protests in a number of countries in the region tell us is that there is still a dire need of action-oriented strategies to alleviate poverty, create jobs, promote inclusive development and ensure democratic governance,” said Ms. Migiro in an address to the Regional Coordinating Mechanism (RCM) meeting of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) in the Lebanese capital, Beirut.“That means going beyond thinking in terms of economic performance. We must work for equity. Social, economic and environmental goals should be addressed in tandem,” she said.She praised the cooperation between ESCWA, the League of Arab States and the UN system, saying it has enabled the creation of a coherent Arab position ahead of the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) in Brazil next year.She urged participants at the RCM to agree on policy approaches that the UN Development Group can use to support country-level development in the region.“The eyes of the world have been on the ESCWA region. The immense changes have raised the hopes of people around the world.“The challenges are enormous. But all of you who have been working so hard here for so many years also understand that the possibilities are even greater. When stability, good governance and equality take root here, we can be sure that the benefits will extend around the world,” said Ms. Migiro.Yesterday, Ms. Migiro attended an event to mark Lebanon’s Independence Day in the city of Tyre, where she told the gathering that the UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) has been helping to create a window of opportunity for a permanent ceasefire and a lasting solution to conflict in the country.“We are here for the people of Lebanon – just as we are deployed around the world for citizens in similar situations – and we will never leave them to the mercy of brutal forces seeking to undermine peace,” she said.She urged the people of Lebanon to enhance cooperation and partnership, regardless of their different convictions and beliefs, to achieve a better and safer future. “Religious leaders can use their extensive influence to promote tolerance and understanding. This is true in Lebanon, in the Middle East, and across the world,” she added.Ms. Migiro also visited the UNIFIL base in Naqoura, where she had a meeting with the Force Commander, Major-General Alberto Asarta Cuevas and other senior officials of the mission.She was briefed on UNIFIL’s operations, attended a town hall meeting with the civilian staff and was hosted by the Tanzanian contingent of peacekeepers.She also inspected a ‘Quick Impact Project’ funded by UNIFIL to build three classrooms for Naqoura’s only intermediate public school. 25 November 2011Deputy Secretary-General Asha-Rose Migiro today urged countries in the Arab region to steer their economies towards sustainable development that leads to the creation of more jobs for youth, while ensuring that the transition is anchored in good governance and respect of human rights.
OSU redshirt sophomore cornerback Marshon Lattimore (2) guards Tulsa redshirt sophomore wide receiver Justin Hobbs (29) during the first quarter against Tulsa on Sept.10. The Buckeyes won 48-3. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorA pick-six and three interceptions against Bowling Green in Week 1 was the start coach Urban Meyer was looking for out of his defense. However, all along, he knew Tulsa’s offense would be more of a test for his secondary.From the very first play from scrimmage, the OSU defense made its presence felt.Tulsa redshirt senior quarterback Dane Evans threw to his left on the first play of the opening drive where redshirt sophomore cornerback Marshon Lattimore made a diving interception the pass inside the Tulsa 20 yard line.OSU only mustered a 29-yard field goal from the short field, taking an early 3-0 lead, and continued to look sluggish throughout the first quarter.Redshirt quarterback J.T. Barrett was 2-for-6 passing for 19 yards in the first quarter. Junior H-back Curtis Samuel — who accumulated 261 yards of total offense against Bowling Green — didn’t register a touch on the team’s four possessions in the first quarter, three of which ended in three-and-outs.The offense started to move the ball in the second half, but only could add another short field goal to extend the lead to 6-0.OSU was likely heading into the half without a touchdown when the defense decided to take matters into its own hands.Redshirt sophomore Malik Hooker intercepted a pass from Evans and returned it 26 yards for his first touchdown as a Buckeye, giving the Scarlet and Gray a more comfortable lead heading into halftime.Then, right before the half, the defense struck again. Lattimore returned to the scene in the middle of an intense rainfall at the end of the second quarter, making his second interception of the game when the intended Tulsa wide receiver lost his footing and the ball fell right into the hands of Lattimore, who returned it 40 yards for his first-ever pick six.“Just getting here on defense and having the whole team get hyped for you, it’s a blessing,” Lattimore said. “I love it. I loved getting everybody hyped like that.”The play of the defense thus far has lifted the team at several points in OSU’s first two games. Hooker and Lattimore each sit with a touchdown and five combined picks in just the first two weeks of the season. Hooker said after the game that he had been battling a stomach bug and a nagging back injury throughout the week, yet his performance yielded more raving reviews of his athleticism.At halftime, the Buckeyes led 20-3 without having an offensive touchdown and with just 161 total yards of offense. Co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Luke Fickell that his defense prides itself on harnessing momentum when it’s available.“Whether it’s the offense, defense or special teams, there is momentum in every game and once you get it, you got to keep it,” Fickell said. “If you don’t have it, you got to find a way to get it. We have to be able to feed off of each other, and I think we did a good job of that today.”Fickell compared the 2016 defense to that of 2006 when the Buckeyes had to replace several starters, yet caused turnovers at will.Meyer credits the play of the defense thus far to coaching and the ability of young players to buy into the coaching. He said guys like Lattimore, Hooker and sophomore cornerback Denzel Ward have waited for their opportunity and it’s paying off now.“Secondary tonight, we knew they were going to come out and try to throw the ball around a lot,” Hooker said. “We just wanted to go out there and play our technique, our fundamentals and it ended up working out for us.”Gareon Conley had his first pick of the season late in the third quarter for the defense’s fourth on the day. Moving forward, OSU has its toughest opponent yet of the young season in No. 14 Oklahoma next week in Norman.The secondary has been the best unit on the team for Meyer and company through the first couple weeks, but it knows the road that lies ahead.“The great thing is we have some depth and we have talent,” Fickell said. “But we have to make sure we understand this is a process that we’re going to continue to grow.”
TAX REVENUES FOR the year so far are €548 million ahead of target, new figures from the Department of Finance show.Finance Minister Michael Noonan said that if the current pattern continues through to the second half of the year “the Budget adjustment will be somewhat less than the €2 billion originally planned”.When once off transactions – specifically the sale of Irish Life and convertible bonds in Bank of Ireland – are excluded, the deficit has improved by €2.3 billion compared to this time last year.Health in the firing lineThe Department of Health continues to be a bugbear for fiscal hawks in Government, with the finger of blame for a €24 million expenditure overrun pointed squarely at Leo Varadkar’s new department.Spending at Health is €273 million, or 3.9%, over target. However the big-spending Department is being offset by savings in other areas, most conspicuously in the Department of Social Protection, where spending is €121 million, or 1.7%, under target.Debt servicingIreland has spent just over €5 billion in servicing the considerable debt pile accumulated by the State during the downturn, which is a slight decrease on last year’s figures, when debt servicing costs ran €45 million higher.Interest expenditure, which is the largest component of debt servicing was 6.3% below target, helped by a bond buy back programme introduced by the Government in December of 2013. This has helped to reduce the State’s interest bill, while the NTMA has also enjoyed low rates and costs from bond sales this year.In a note issued after the returns were published, Davy Stockbrokers said that the Government should “easily beat the 4.8% deficit target for this year, helped by recent upward revisions to GDP”.Read: The exchequer tax take is €500 million ahead of target>Read: 2014 tax take €466 million ahead of target, spending below projections>
104,591 Views ALLIED IRISH BANKS (AIB) has been criticised after a student claimed staff made an assumption about her race in a Dublin city centre branch when she tried to set up a student account. The 20-year-old student, Sarah*, was born in Ireland to Chinese parents. She now attends the National College of Ireland (NCI), where she is in her first year of studies.The student told TheJournal.ie that staff members in AIB in the IFSC assumed she was an international student when she attempted to open a student account recently. She claims that when she went to the branch to open her student account, she was told by a bank worker that she would need to return with a letter from her college. Once she did this, the bank worker then informed her that she would also need to get the document signed by her college’s international office. This is not required from Irish students – only international ones. In a statement to TheJournal.ie, a spokesperson for AIB said a staff member “unintentionally presumed they were an international student”.“The vast majority of student accounts opened in our IFSC branch are opened by international students due to the branch’s proximity to the National College of Ireland campus. Share541 Tweet Email3 https://jrnl.ie/4594297 ‘I left feeling like s**t’: AIB criticised for ‘presuming’ Irish woman was international student Sarah* (20) was born in Ireland to Chinese parents. She now attends the National College of Ireland (NCI). Image: Leah Farrell via RollingNews.ie No one likes to be called out like that. It’s humiliating, it’s dehumanising, absolutely degrading.“I’ve tried to avoid walking on my own as much as possible,” Sarah said.Reflecting on the incident in the AIB branch in the IFSC, Sarah said: “The bank worker literally looked at the colour of my skin and made her assumptions. By Hayley Halpin Apr 18th 2019, 12:06 AM Image: Leah Farrell via RollingNews.ie Ireland, particularly Dublin, is so culturally diverse nowadays and to make that automatic assumption would be inappropriate and insensitive.“I’m hoping AIB will address this so that others do not have to experience this treatment,” she said. The director of the European Network Against Racism Ireland, Shane O’Curry, told TheJournal.ie that incidents like this happen on a daily basis to people from minority backgrounds. “It’s the drip, drip, drip effect of these that can be really corrosive to people. It really makes people experience a world in which they are not able to exercise their rights equally with other people,” O’Curry said. “It’s important to highlight even relatively minor incidents like these because when these things are normalised they create the context in which more serious incidents can happen. It’s something we shouldn’t allow in society,” he said.The incidentTwo weeks ago, Sarah went into the branch to enquire about opening the account. Here, she claims a bank worker told her that she needed a letter from her college and her passport to open an account at the branch. “It made sense to me that they wanted a student letter because I was opening a student account. It didn’t occur to me that anything was strange,” Sarah told TheJournal.ie. According to AIB’s website, third-level students need the following with them when opening a Student Plus Account: Proof of their current addressCorrespondence from a government department/bodyA letter from the CAOSarah returned to the branch last Thursday, 11 April, with her college letter and passport. The same bank worker sat down with her at this point to discuss opening the account. Sarah claims she was then told she had to get her student letter signed by the international office. She said she asked for confirmation that only international students need to get this signature, to which the bank worker said yes. Sarah said that her passport has a cover on it, so it’s not clear from looking at the cover that it is an Irish passport.“I told her I’m not an international student and she kind of just shuffled and was like ‘Oh, alright, ok’,” Sarah said. The bank worker then asked Sarah to get her letter signed by student services in the college instead. I didn’t expect that in a bank. I expected more in a professional setting, in workplace, I suppose.Sarah said that the man was “very apologetic” when she explained that she is not an international student. However, she still requested to speak to a branch manager. The situation was explained by both Sarah and the worker to a more senior staff member. “I don’t think he was very empathetic. There was no real resolution, just ‘I’m sorry’,” Sarah said. Sarah claimed she was asked her if there was anything the bank could do to help the situation. However, she said she wasn’t sure what to say. “I just didn’t want to deal with it anymore so I just left it there, we shook hands and I left,” she said. Sarah has since opened a student account at another AIB branch closer to her home. Facing discriminationSarah told TheJournal.ie that when she was a teenager she used to go for a walk after dinner every night. She claimed that “more often than not” she would have people yell at her because of her race. I didn’t want to make a scene out of it or give out to her because I’m so used to getting racism towards me that I just thought that was something minor.Second incidentSarah again returned to the bank after getting the letter signed by student services. Another bank worker came over to assist her. “He came up to me and was like ‘How can I help you?’. I was like ‘I just want to open a student account’. He also implied that I was an international student,” she claimed.Sarah told TheJournal.ie that she believes he looked at her student letter and then made the assumption that she was an international student. “I let it go the first time and [this time] I was like what is it with these people thinking I’m an international student?” Sarah said. “I couldn’t let that one go at that point because it happened again in the same place,” she said. Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Short URL Thursday 18 Apr 2019, 12:05 AM I don’t think I could ever be made feel like an outsider in my own country. “I left [the IFSC branch] feeling like absolute shit, obviously.” Sarah confirmed that she hasn’t filed a formal complaint to the bank. Syrian dentistThis incident comes after it was reported earlier this month that the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC) ordered to pay a Syrian dentist €4,000 over its refusal to open a bank account for him because of his nationality. The WRC found that AIB discriminated against the man on the grounds of race under the Equal Status Act.In the case, the Syrian man was granted refugee status here in July 2017 after he came to Ireland as part of the country’s Refugee Protection Programme.In his evidence, the Syrian stated that a female bank official told him “we don’t open bank accounts for Syrians at the moment” and she pointed to the word “Syria” which is recorded on the Travel Document as his place of birth.In relation to this case, a spokesperson for AIB stated: “While AIB does not comment on individual cases, we do welcome and support customer applications from people with refugee status, and have trained our staff to help applicants through the account opening process.”*Names have been changed to protect the identity of those involved. 150 Comments In this instance, a staff member, with the best intention of helping a customer open an account, unintentionally presumed they were an international student and tried to help them by advising what documentation they’d require. “Our branch manager met the customer in question and apologised to them.”Reacting to AIB’s statement, Sarah said that “even if there may be more international students opening accounts in the IFSC branch, that should not be used as an excuse to assume that an individual’s nationality is not Irish simply because of their skin colour”.

My husband and I sat next to a moonlit pool and had a depressing conversation. As we sipped our beers and watched a midnight rainstorm move in through restless palms, I confessed to him that I didn’t really feel the same passion, couldn’t see what I once saw, had entered a bit of a slump, was even dreaming of others.I wasn’t talking about him. I was talking about Costa Rica. Still, I felt almost as guilty as if it were our actual marriage on the line, and not my marriage to his country.This was a strange position in which to find myself: I love Costa Rica, and there are few things I dislike more than listening to people who have chosen to live here sit around and complain as if it had been inflicted on them. I dislike this so much that I cannot even bring myself to list the things that were getting me down. Let’s just say that it was the usual bureaucratic frustrations, the wet-footed San José schlepping, the little inconveniences. They sounded silly coming out of my mouth, and no one of them would ever be worth relocating for – but when I added them up, they contributed to a certain fatigue.I have lived in the same house for more than 10 years, but I have traveled quite a distance in that time. I have trouble channeling the college student who devoured the country with a ridiculous grin, unable to believe her good fortune, staring in rapture out of bus windows, listening wide-eyed to howler monkeys at night and thinking they were lions, making bioluminescent footprints on a deserted beach, getting lost, being found. Somewhere along the way I moved from “Will you LOOK at THIS?” to “Oh, yeah – that’s amazing, isn’t it?” My tone of voice is more like my New York friends when I visit their city: “Yeah, I guess the subway is an incredible feat of engineering. Yeah, Central Park is huge. Yeah, there sure are a lot of Original Ray’s.”The Indian-American writer Jhumpa Lahiri, who writes about immigration so beautifully, is living in Rome with her family. She talked to The Financial Times recently about the experience, saying that, “Here, I have felt free and invisible, and have felt that sense that there’s another mountain to climb, I’m at the bottom of it, and that’s the great challenge.” Her words went right to my heart, both the good and the bad. We live abroad because we want a mountain to climb, and sometimes that mountain can seem too much for us. We want a nice flat meadow with a mailbox and the Sunday New York Times.My husband, my finest adviser, thought for a moment as the rain came down in earnest, and then offered some advice. “First, think about the big things Costa Rica has given you, and not the little crap. And second, see if a day at the beach makes you feel better.”I laughed, but you know what? He was right. The beach did help me: not the ocean, but the sand. Un granito de arena, to be precise. Like lots of the language I’ve detailed in this column, it’s not a specifically Costa Rican phrase – I’m not sure of its origin – but the expression, especially with the diminutive on the end of grano, is oh-so-Tico to me. After all, this is a country so enamored of diminutives that its habit of changing “-tito” to “-tico” (momentico, chiquitico) gave its people their nickname. It’s a country where, from birth, our children are enveloped in a happy cloud of little terms: our gorditos and muñequitas and bodoquitos and frijolitos and chiquitines and princesitas.It’s a country where it makes perfect sense that to do your part, to chip in, to help the world, you need to poner su granito de arena. You set down, not a brick or a stone, but one little grain of sand at a time.I thought about this as I compressed million of grains of sand underneath my feet and ran along the foamy edge of low tide, an activity with a crazy power to restore sanity. I thought about the granito de arena, and realized that while I tend to see my relationship with Costa Rica as a marriage of sorts, there is at least one big difference between such a marriage and an actual one. In a happy marriage between people, any desire to mold and change and push one’s partner should be far outweighed, or even completely eclipsed, by acceptance.A good relationship with a country, however, needs its share of dissatisfaction. We are meant to see room for improvement and take action. We are meant to push and prod. We are meant to throw up our hands at times and swear at the newspaper, to get frustrated, to take it personally, even to mourn.The true question for a traveler, for those with the tremendous luxury of choosing their surroundings, isn’t whether the mountain is big and tiring, but whether it is theirs to climb. It’s not whether there are problems or there aren’t – there always will be – but whether they are our problems to solve. The answer to this question is a moving target. There are days I feel hopeful about Costa Rica and the role I can play in it, and days I feel disheartened, just as there are days when I feel hopeful or hopeless about the future of the United States. But just figuring out the right question to ask made me feel infinitely better.We want to find for ourselves, and for our children, the best quality of life we can, but part of that quality of life is having the power to make a difference, or to see our parents fighting the good fight. Part of what a country gives or denies us is traction, leverage, a voice, a place to put our little grain of sand. In that sense, and in many others, Costa Rica has never failed me.Five riders on horseback came towards me. Even at a distance, I could see their broad smiles as they looked at the wide, empty beach, the crashing waves, the waving palms. They couldn’t believe their good fortune.I smiled back and looked past them, indecisive. There was an estuary a little ways ahead that makes a nice stopping point, but I knew my family was waiting for me at our little cabina. I would be back soon enough, maybe next month.
