The drips aim to alleviate the crushing effects of a brutal hangover. Inserted into the arm, the drips take about 30 minutes to diffuse the anti-alcohol-goodness into the blood stream.  The cause of the hangovers is often the pressure many in the city are under to entertain clients until late in the evening. Blakely said: There are a lot of people around here who can’t afford to have a day off because of a hangover, so I have been out to a lot of people’s homes and hotel rooms to put up drips for them. There’s an expectation and pressure where these people have to go out to party. Brokers in the City that make their money at night entertaining clients – it’s these guys who ask for it the most. It is a popular thing for hangovers, because a hangover is essentially dehydration. So it can not only help treat that it will also give you the vitamin boost to feel a lot better and get rid of the toxins in the body. Vitamin drips are also used by athletes and people recovering from illness.

News / Flexport opens container freight station in Vietnam as supply chains shift

first_img By Sam Whelan 05/11/2019 Source: Flexport Flexport has partnered with Vietnam’s Indo Trans Logistics (ITL) to open a new container freight station (CFS) outside Ho Chi Minh City.Located in Thu Dau Mot City, around 30km from the southern commercial capital, the cross-dock facility will serve as a vital hub for Flexport’s South-east Asia operations, the company said.“As more businesses move to diversify supply chains, they are seeking strategic locations to better serve them,” Flexport noted.“One ripple effect of the US-China trade war has been a shift of manufacturing and production of goods from mainland China to South-east Asia.“In fact, [US] freight volumes from January to September this year show absolute volumes grew by 32% from Vietnam, according to US Customs manifest data.”However, according to the forwarder, moving supply chains to Vietnam – and South-east Asia in general – has proved “easier said than done” for some customers, due to constraints in the region’s infrastructure and a lack of suitably skilled labour to support manufacturing on the same scale as China.“Shippers are encountering port and road congestion, as well as restricted trucking areas in cities such as Ho Chi Minh, leading to delays in their supply chain.“At a time when there is infinite global uncertainty and shippers are looking for creative solutions to keep their supply chains fluid, the new CFS facility is critical,” Flexport added.The forwarder says its dedicated space at the ITL-operated facility will help customers “navigate the infrastructure challenges”, since it is located at the “epicentre of garment and footwear manufacturing in South Vietnam, as well as in close proximity to inland container depots”.“The location of the warehouse is key,” a Flexport spokeswoman told The Loadstar. “It’s outside the restricted trucking areas and provides Flexport clients with more flexibility.”ITL is Vietnam’s fourth-largest logistics company, and describes itself as a full-service, asset-based logistics provider.Flexport said ITL staff would ensure customers had end-to-end visibility of their cargo by providing real-time updates in the Flexport app, including cargo-in and cargo-out milestones and cargo receipts.The CFS will be used to support Flexport’s weekly consolidation services from Ho Chi Minh City to Los Angeles, New York and Rotterdam.Meanwhile, Vietnam’s port volumes have grown by double-digits in recent years, reaching nearly 13m teu last year on the back of the country’s booming export industry.The Cai Mep-Thi Vai deepwater port complex experienced the fastest growth after years of under-use, with volumes jumping 21% in 2018, according to the Vietnam Seaports Association (VPA).Shippers traditionally preferred river terminals closer to central Ho Chi Minh City, but congestion and the need for bigger ships appears to be shifting the balance. Furthermore, the US-China trade war is driving demand for a greater number of direct transpacific services from Vietnam.“For free on board (FOB), full containerload (FCL) shipments, Flexport clients drop off both directly at the port of Cai Mep-Thi Vai and at the river terminals,” the Flexport spokeswoman said. “We typically recommend Cai Mep-Thi Vai for a smoother connection, but ultimately it comes down to the location of the supplier and the payment terms a client has with the supplier.“However, clients that use our warehousing services don’t need to take these factors into consideration. Since we manage a client’s cargo consolidations, we ultimately choose the port and transport the cargo to meet cut-off times,” she said.last_img read more

 

Experts say Trump’s EPA is moving to loosen radiation limits

first_img Tags cancerpublic healthresearch GET STARTED What is it? A CT scan technician prepares for a patient at the Silver Cross Emergency Care Center in Homer Glen, Ill. M. Spencer Green/AP WASHINGTON — The EPA is pursuing rule changes that experts say would weaken the way radiation exposure is regulated, turning to scientific outliers who argue that a bit of radiation damage is actually good for you — like a little bit of sunlight.The government’s current, decades-old guidance says that any exposure to harmful radiation is a cancer risk. And critics say the proposed change could lead to higher levels of exposure for workers at nuclear installations and oil and gas drilling sites, medical workers doing X-rays and CT scans, people living next to Superfund sites and any members of the public who one day might find themselves exposed to a radiation release.

OSC amends Trade Repositories and Derivatives Data Reporting Rule

first_img The Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) published its rule amendments to extend the deadlines for reporting to trade repositories in the over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives markets. A policy that’s being introduced to improve transparency and regulatory oversight in the derivatives market. Last week, the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) announced that they are delaying implementation of trade reporting obligations because there isn’t yet a trade repository in position to accept the data. “At present, no trade repository that can accept all OTC derivative asset classes has completed its application to be recognized or designated within the required timeframe for the commencement of trade reporting obligations in Quebec, Manitoba and Ontario,” the CSA said. (See Investment Executive, CSA extends OTC trade reporting deadline, April 10, 2014.) On Thursday , the OSC announced amendments to OSC Rule 91-507 Trade Repositories and Derivatives Data Reporting to implement the extension. Similar amendments are also being published by the Autorité des marches financiers (AMF) and the Manitoba Securities Commission (MSC). OTC derivatives trade reporting was scheduled to start on July 2. However, the amendments push back the effective date of reporting obligations to Oct. 31 for clearing agencies and dealers, and to June 30, 2015 for all other OTC derivatives market participants. “The extension will provide additional time for trade repositories engaged in the designation or recognition process to accept market participants onto their systems and develop the reporting infrastructure necessary to comply with the rule,” the OSC notes. The OSC says that it has also repealed the requirement for Ontario non-dealer counterparties to monitor and confirm that transaction reporting requirements have been satisfied by their foreign dealer reporting counterparties, noting that “there are significant resource and technological challenges for non-dealer counterparties in developing systems to monitor their counterparties’ reporting, and this amendment serves to alleviate this burden on smaller end-user counterparties.” The amendments are not being published for comment, the OSC says, as they do not represent a material change.

Pandemic accelerates ESG, investment and tech trends

first_img Katie Keir How do you measure the impact of an impact investment? Group of large oilsands operators commit to become net zero emitters by 2050 Related news Facebook LinkedIn Twitter hand nurturing and watering young baby plants growing in germination sequence on fertile soil with natural green background 123RF/Weerapat Kiatdumrong There’s little doubt that both responsible investment (RI) and the use of environmental, social and governance (ESG) data have been growing in recent years.The Responsible Investment Association’s (RIA) latest surveys, for example, show that RI assets in Canada increased from $2.1 trillion in 2017 to more than $3 trillion in 2019. Further, the organization’s 2020 Investor Opinion Survey found the vast majority of respondents to its online poll remained very or somewhat interested in RI. Climate metrics are imperfect, but advisors still need to start using them Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Keywords ESG Add the pandemic to that mix, and what you have is an acceleration of industry and investor interest in the use of ESG criteria that takes material, non-financial risks into account, said a speaker panel during this week’s virtual Conference of Montreal, called Bridging a Disconnected World, organized by the International Economic Forum of the Americas.The panel, which discussed the use of ESG factors and more, included: Marc-André Blanchard, executive vice-president and head of CDPQ Global; Kunal Kapoor, CEO of Morningstar; and Kristi Mitchem, CEO and head of BMO Global Asset Management.To understand responsible investment, investors need interest and time, Mitchem said. And one effect of the Covid-19 outbreak is “it’s really changing the consciousness of people because they have personally experienced the pandemic,” she said.Based on how families and communities have been impacted, “what it’s increasingly allowing is for people to make that connection between the challenges that we’re facing as a society, and the economic and financial impact that not addressing [those issues] can have,” Mitchem said.Kapoor noted that a separate but related trend has also contributed to RI growth this year.As firms invested more heavily in digital innovation, in part to overcome social-distancing hurdles, they also moved closer to their goal of further personalizing investment tools.“We’re sitting here and saying that ESG can have many cuts, and that your values can be different than mine, and most investment strategies these days don’t get into that level of detail,” he said.“But technology is enabling a very meaningful change in how wealth and asset management services are delivered; it’s very possible that in the future there will be a very personalized delivery for each of us,” leading to greater investor engagement and reflection of their values.As people focus more on their values and individual needs, the ESG versus non-ESG performance debate will also fade, Kapoor said.So much of the discussion around whether ESG strategies should be used is based on its potential to under- or overperform, he said, “but we should get past that. The constant debate actually clouds the ability to really have a deeper look at preferences and building portfolios around impact.”Generally, “when companies start to take on better corporate governance principles, they start to do better,” he said, noting that looking for good governance “has never been controversial.”What will change going forward, Kapoor said, is “we’ll think of E and S [factors] the same way.” And, just as the measurement of investment risk became an industry staple several decades ago, so too will the use of ESG data.The largest hurdle is that the industry “is only in the infancy [stage] on data,” said Blanchard, particularly when it comes to social and diversity issues.“I see critics who talk about greenwashing and who say we should be skeptical of everything that is not measured properly,” he said, and that’s why so many initiatives are aimed at data standardization.“We’re only at the outset of what measuring [social issues] really means. Coming out of this pandemic, the S is still a struggle,” Blanchard said.However, companies are trying to clarify their practices around compensation and diversity, and governments, companies and institutional investors are already working together to foster better conditions.“You’ll see that more and more, and [solutions] will take the form of very surprising partnerships as we look at risk like never before,” Blanchard said.last_img read more
