Rescuers rush to north Japan amid damage after quake kills 7

first_img Share Tags: Earthquake, Hokkaido, Japan Thursday, September 6, 2018 Rescuers rush to north Japan amid damage after quake kills 7 By: The Associated Press ASAHIKAWA — Rescuers were rushing to unearth survivors and restore power Thursday after a powerful earthquake jolted Japan’s northernmost main island of Hokkaido, buckling roads, knocking homes off their foundations and causing entire hillsides to collapse.Residents in Sapporo were shaken from their beds when the magnitude 6.7 earthquake struck southern Hokkaido at 3:08 a.m. Video cameras showed cities going dark as the quake disabled power systems, leaving nearly 3 million households on the island without electricity.The island’s only nuclear power plant, which was offline, switched to a backup generator to keep its spent fuel cool and nuclear regulators said there was no sign of abnormal radiation – a concern after a massive quake and tsunami in March 2011 that hit northeast Japan destroyed both external and backup power to the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant, causing meltdowns.Japan’s Meteorological Agency said the quake’s epicenter was 40 kilometres deep. But it still wreaked havoc across much of the relatively sparsely inhabited island.Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told a news conference that seven people had been confirmed dead. The national broadcaster NHK put the number at eight.More news:  Windstar celebrates record-breaking bookings in JulyRescuers were using small backhoes and shovels to sift through the tons of soil, rocks and timber in hopes of finding survivors in the town of Atsuma, where steep mountainsides collapsed, crushing homes and farm buildings and leaving scores of brown gashes in the deep green hills.Disaster officials in Hokkaido said about 30 people were unaccounted for.Airports and many roads on the island were closed and trains were idled by the power outages. NHK showed workers rushing to clean up shattered glass and reinstall ceiling panels that had tumbled down in the region’s biggest airport at Chitose.Japan is used to dealing with disasters, but the last few months have brought a string of calamities. The quake came on the heels of a typhoon that lifted heavy trucks off their wheels and triggered heavy flooding in western Japan, leaving the main airport near Osaka and Kobe closed after a tanker rammed a bridge connecting the facility to the mainland. The summer also brought devastating floods from torrential rains in Hiroshima and deadly hot temperatures across the country.More news:  Apply now for AQSC’s agent cruise ratesPrime Minister Shinzo Abe said that up to 25,000 troops and other personnel would be dispatched to Hokkaido to help with rescue operations.In the prefectural capital of Sapporo, a city of 1.9 million, the quake ruptured roads and knocked houses askew. A mudslide left several cars half buried.Economy, Trade and Industry Minister Hiroshige Seko told reporters that the extensive power outage was caused by an emergency shutdown of the main thermal power plant at Tomato Atsuma that supplies half of Hokkaido’s electricity.The hope had been to get power back up within hours and some electricity was gradually being restored. However, damage to generators at the Tomato Atsuma plant meant that the restoration of power could take more than a week, Seko said.He said utilities were starting up several other thermal and hydroelectric plants but even with those stopgap supplies thousands would still be without power for some time.In the meantime, authorities sent power-generator vehicles to hospitals and other locations. << Previous PostNext Post >>last_img read more

THAI holds its Annual General Shareholders Meeting 2017

first_imgTHAI Airways International www.thaiairways.comTHAI holds its Annual General Shareholders’ Meeting 2017Air Force Convention Hall – Mr. Areepong Bhoocha-oom, Chairman of the Board of Directors, Thai Airways International Public Company Limited (THAI), presided over the Company’s Annual General Shareholders’ Meeting 2017, with the attendance of THAI’s Board of Directors, THAI Management and shareholders, covering the following agenda:Operating Results for 2016At THAI’s Annual General Shareholders’ Meeting 2017, the operating results for 2016 (January-December 2016) were acknowledged. THAI continued to implement its second phase of the transformation plan “Strength Building” in 2016 by embarking on four main strategies: 1.) generating aggressive revenue, 2.) reducing cost and increasing efficiencies, 3.) building capabilities for sustainable growth, and 4.) creating excellent quality of service. THAI implemented these tasks by using information technology with international standards to enhance revenue management and to implement its new business class service, to launch new routes: Bangkok-Tehran, Iran, Phuket-Frankfurt, to resume the Bangkok-Moscow route, to add flight frequencies in Europe, and continuation of last year’s MSP program.Furthermore, THAI adjusted its fleet strategy by taking delivery of 2 Airbus A350-900XWB aircraft that primarily operate on intercontinental routes while it decommissioned 2 Boeing 777-200 operating lease aircraft on 31 December 2016 with 95 aircraft remaining in the fleet, which is the same amount as the end of the previous year but with improved aircraft utilization. Consequently, product traffic (ASK) of THAI and its subsidiaries increased by 1.9% while passenger traffic (RPK) increased by 2.5%. The average cabin factor was 73.4% higher than last year which was 72.9% with 22.3 million passengers carried, representing a 4.8% increase from last year.As a result of development in various areas based on the strategic plan and satisfactory success of the organization’s transformation, there was an overall improvement in customer satisfaction evident from various awards that the Company received. In addition, the financial performance in 2016 of THAI and its subsidiaries showed an operating profit of THB 4,071 million compared to last year’s loss of THB 1,304 million or 412.2%, a vast improvement from last year mainly because total expense decreased by 7.1% from the decrease in fuel expense by THB 17,907 million (28.3%) resulting from the jet fuel prices that dropped by 21.6% and improved fuel risk management, net finance cost reduced by THB 431 million (7.7%) due to efficient cash management and financial restructure, while non-fuel operating expense increased by THB 4,773 million (3.9%) mostly due to increase in maintenance and overhaul expenses. Total revenue decreased by THB 8,190 million (4.3%). Passenger and excess baggage revenue reduced by THB 4,428 million (2.9%) due to fuel surcharge adjustment while other revenue reduced by THB 3,775 million since last year, the main reason being that last year THAI received insurance compensation from the delayed delivery of economy class seats at the amount of THB 3,968 million.In 2016, THAI and its subsidiaries had a one-time cost item that resulted from aircraft maintenance based on actual conditions of aircraft and maintenance contractual obligations of THB 1,317 million, transformation plan expenses of THB 1,228 million, and impairment loss of assets and aircraft of THB 3,628 million but had a THB 685 million gain on foreign currency exchange. Consequently, THAI and its subsidiaries reported a net profit of THB 47 million. Profit attributable to owners of the parent amounted to THB 15 million. Profit per share was THB 0.01 or 100.2% higher than last year’s loss per share of THB 5.99.As of 31 December 2016, total assets were THB 283,124 million, a decrease of THB 19,347 million (6.4%) from 31 December 2015, mainly due to short-term and long-term repayment, additional provision of impairment of aircraft and aircraft sold during the year. Total liabilities as of 31 December 2016 totaled THB 249,536 million, a decrease of THB 20,009 million (7.4%) from 31 December 2015. Total shareholders’ equity amounted to THB 33,588 million, an increase of THB 662 million (2.0%).Distribution of Dividend At the Annual General Shareholders’ Meeting, shareholders approved to suspend payment of dividend in reflection of the Company’s financial performance in 2015. The suspension of dividend payment is in accordance with the Company’s dividend policy providing that the Company shall distribute “not less than 25 percent of the consolidated net profit before gains or losses on foreign currency exchange and shall also be subject to the future investment plans, necessity and appropriateness.”Selection of Board of Directors At the Annual General Shareholders’ Meeting 2017, the following Directors retired by rotation:1. ACM Treetod Sonjance2. Gen. Chatudom Titthasiri3. ACM Siwakiat Jayema4. Mr. Peraphon Thawornsupacharoen5.

NewsWritten by C Raja Mohan | Updated: June 16 2015 12:59 am As Tehran and Washington inch towards a nuclear deal which will begin to ease nearly four decades of hostility between them there will be much room for expansive engagement between India and Iran Related News As the NDA government devotes some attention to high-level political engagement with the Middle East Iran offers one of the greatest strategic possibilities But in realising that opportunity New Delhi will have to negotiate a number of obstacles The recent visits to Tehran by Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari and Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar are part of that effort External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj is likely to follow soon As Tehran and Washington inch towards a nuclear deal which will begin to ease nearly four decades of hostility between them there will be much room for expansive engagement between India and Iran Although the prospect of a nuclear reconciliation appears so close and tantalising we are not there yet That casts a shadow over Delhi’s diplomacy towards Tehran As Iranian President Hassan Rouhani noted a nuclear deal is within reach before the agreed deadline of June 30 But he added a caveat: If the US and its Western partners put “new issues” on the table the negotiation could get complicated Even if an agreement is finalised it will be a while before it is implemented Given the complexity of the deal and the entrenched mutual suspicions the interpretation of the agreement’s terms is likely to become a bone of contention Meanwhile here is the diplomatic problem for India: Tehran wants Delhi to demonstrate the commitment to move forward right away Delhi which does not want to break the sanctions regime tends to be cautious The trick is to focus on making quick advances in those areas that are not targets of international sanctions and keep a practical roadmap ready for rapid movement on key areas like energy cooperation as sanctions begin to be lifted Afghan Dynamic Stabilising Afghanistan has long been a shared objective of India and Iran It has become even more salient after the US ended its combat role at the end of last year While a small number of American troops remain for purposes of training Kabul is finding it increasingly hard to cope with the vigorous military offensive by the Taliban In the late 1990s when the Taliban backed by Pakistan raced to power in Afghanistan Delhi and Tehran along with Russia and some Central Asian states helped sustain the political opposition to its rule It is by no means clear that Delhi and Tehran can simply return to that kind of cooperation For much has changed in and around Afghanistan since For example some recent Western media reports say Iran might be helping the Taliban While such an alliance seems improbable the storyline is that Shia Iran might be warming up to the Taliban to counter the Islamic State which represents a more virulent form of Sunni extremism Whether the eventual positions of India and Iran converge fully or not Delhi and Tehran could gain much by sustained political consultations and intelligence exchanges on the rapidly evolving situation in Afghanistan Middle East Balance The sharpening political rivalry between Tehran and Riyadh the unmitigated tensions between Iran and Israel and the deepening sectarian schisms are breaking up the old order in the Middle East The rise of Iranian power and its Arab neighbours’ fear have begun to generate strange alignments for example between sections of the Gulf monarchies and Israel Until now India’s engagement with Iran has been constrained by the prolonged hostility between Washington and Tehran Delhi’s future constraints are likely to emerge from the shifting sands of regional politics The Narendra Modi government is determined to develop a special relationship with Israel that can contribute significantly to the transformation of India’s defence sector Most of India’s current economic energy and human resource equities are in the Arab Gulf; securing these will remain the highest priority And Iran is critical for stabilising India’s northwestern marches providing access to Central Asia and in meeting India’s

NewsWritten by Pratap Bhanu Mehta | Published: September 27 2014 12:18 am Let us for a moment grant that the Supreme Court’s final decisions in these cases have some merit Related News Just as the government is getting energised another spectre is haunting India: chronic regulatory malfunction The Supreme Court’s judgments cancelling the allocation of coal blocks and striking down the National Tax Tribunal Act have set the cat among the pigeons There are interesting technical issues in both cases that deserve longer discussion But in different ways the net result of the judgments will be to dent the credibility of the Indian state In a purely formal and legalistic sense these rulings will be seen as the triumph of accountability a Supreme Court holding a deviant executive to account But the institutional picture they project is of a regulatory order beset by confusion uncertainty and happenstance rather than a consistent rule of law Our regulatory state is now so tangled up in knots that if you pull at any one of the threads even with the good intention of reform it is not clear what might collapse Let us for a moment grant that the Supreme Court’s final decisions in these cases have some merit But they raise serious fears about the state’s regulatory capacities fears that will not be easy to mitigate First the chasm between the judiciary and the legislature’s understanding of what the Constitution requires is widening Some of that may be due to the executive’s vested interests in corruption But corruption is only a small part of the story Over the last decade or so the executive has lost a majority of important regulatory reform cases in areas as diverse as education and taxation This suggests that different branches of government are working with different interpretations of what the general provisions of the Constitution require The courts are from Mars and the legislature is from Venus And the requisite dialogue to create a shared constitutional understanding is not happening In the coal case the silver lining might be that the government now has the political cover to repeal the Coal Mines (Nationalisation) Act and start afresh But how many of you want to bet money that even a good-faith legislation will not be tripped up somewhere for being incompatible with some other law Second the Supreme Court itself has muddied constitutional interpretation beyond recognition Important principles like judicial independence basic structure separation of powers and public interest on which the court has expanded its power are often too abstract to know where their application will lie In the tax tribunal case the Supreme Court has contended that the tribunal had not just usurped the powers of the high court but that the methods of appointment and so forth do not conform to the norms of independence that might be required for a court-like tribunal Fair enough But is it clear what standard a tribunal has to meet to pass this test The National Green Tribunal another consequential economic tribunal was constituted practically under the orders of the Supreme Court and under its supervision Does it meet this test You could say that since a Supreme Court judge is the chairman of the selection committee it does On the other hand you could say that since government can vary the composition of the selection committee it does not In short many of the high principles the court invokes are more like throws in a judicial roulette Third even when holding the executive accountable the court has dispensed with all known principles of natural justice This column had contended that in the 2G case the court had dispensed with all requirements of natural justice including pre-empting the question of guilt without a full lower court hearing What is jarring in the coal decision is not just that ordinary citizens will see that there is no statute of limitations in India Its short-run economic consequences are also not an issue — the court cannot be instrumental about the rule of law But here is a real issue If the state makes a mistake and 20 years later a private party that was a beneficiary of that particular contract with the state has to suffer because of the state’s errors what protection do I have How am I as a private citizen supposed to know whether the state did its procedural due diligence How do I know whether the committee met for three minutes or had a full discussion whether all companies were properly vetted and so on Again corruption is the easy issue Contracts where there is corruption need to be annulled But like in the 2G case the court has detected a massive lapse without fixing anyone’s responsibility The CBI kicks in only if it can prove real corruption Who bears the costs of the state’s lapse There is little protection for good-faith investors Corruption has so clouded our thinking that these deeper underlying issues are being given short shrift Just think of the range of areas where this is an issue In land acquisition if the state does not conduct a social impact assessment properly or in the case of the environment an environmental impact assessment should the costs be borne by only the private party that accepted a contract in good faith If corruption privatises the public exchequer this kind of regulatory structure gives no private party protection against state recklessness If the court had been serious it should have sent a real message to the state The only message it sent was that the state can easily pass on all the costs of its lapses to private citizens Fourth there are doubts about whether the ways in which the courts interpret the Constitution are compatible with the rise of the modern regulatory state In the tax case for example the court has plausibly said that only high courts can decide a substantial point of law Fair enough But it is not self-evident what a substantial point of law is In a modern regulatory state even policy can be reinterpreted as a substantial point of law Let us face it: there is increasingly going to be a deep tension between the emerging complexities of the administrative state and the narrow conceptual lenses through which lawyers and judges view these matters To be fair this is a global phenomenon Premature and excessive judicialisation of so many matters is making the creation of sensible policy difficult It is generating a war of blunt positions At the very least the government has its legal homework cut out for it Bureaucrats can be energised But our regulatory order has now been pulled

like Goa the geographical lines are going to be wiped out the cultural fabric will be rewritten” Bruce 47 fears the highways and coal development will lead to a “demographic imbalance between indigenous Goans and the rest” “Everything is now going to be one template The village and the villagers will be transgressed and these highways and the government policies supporting them are not being integrated into the way Goans live They have taken a road right through us One massive road bulldozing our heritage our dignity our identity” says Bruce It’s near evening and at the bypass near Nuvem-Fatorda is a service station belonging to Menon Silva Lobo 68 a fabricator For Lobo the “coal issue” was someone else’s problem until more and more coal-laden trucks began to rumble past
