Investors bullish on Q1 returns while advisors remain cautious Investors bullish on Bitcoin, while advisors remain “overwhelmingly pessimistic” Young Canadians and affluent investors are feeling more confident about their finances both today and for the future, according to Waterloo, Ont.-based Manulife Financial Corp.’s semi-annual Investor Sentiment Index. According to results released on Tuesday, affluent Canadian investors had a ranking of +35 on the Index compared to +26 in the U.S. and +21 in Asia. Specifically, the survey found that high-net worth Canadians feel confidant about investing in their homes, stocks, real estate and balanced mutual funds.

In other results released on July 2, Manulife’s Investor Sentiment Index found that younger Canadians are particularly optimistic about their financial future. Fifty-five percent of Canadians aged 25 to 34 are likely to say they are in a better financial position today than two years ago, according to Manulife, compared with 46% of the demographic who said the same in 2012. Over a third of those same Canadians feel they are on track to reach their current goals. Furthermore, 7% of young Canadians surveyed for the index said they were ahead of schedule in reaching their goals. That is a slight increase from the 4% of Canadians who responded the same in 2012. Finally, even though 41% of young Canadians say they are behind schedule in reaching their financial goals, the same individuals say they are confident that they will be able to get back on track. Statistics for the Manulife Investor Sentiment Index are the results of online surveys completed by 1,000 Canadians aged 25 and older conducted in May 2013. Affluent Canadians are defined as individuals 25 of age and older with a household income of $75,000 or greater and investible assets of $100,000 or more. Manulife also conducted separate surveys in Asia and the U.S. read more

Höegh rolls to Bahrain

first_imgOn behalf of Bechtel, the crane girder, destined for the Alba Potline 6 project, was loaded onto a single roll-trailer in Borusan.Einar Bassøe, head of global cargo operations at Höegh, explained: “Our policy is to primarily use well known methods in order to keep the risk and complexity to a low level in all aspects of the cargo handling operation. As for this particular breakbulk piece, it could have been loaded with other methods, but by keeping it to the single roll-trailer concept we ensured a low risk operation in front of us.“By using equipment that is well known in all ports around the world, the cargo operations team could rest assured that the stevedores on each side of the sailing would be comfortable with handling the long piece of cargo.”In the planning stages of the project, Höegh’s cargo operation team established that if a regular 80 ft (24.4 m) roll-trailer was used, the bogies would be in front of the cargo’s centre of gravity, which would mean that the load would be too heavy on the front wheel. This would result in the cargo tipping over, says Höegh. The solution was to use Höegh’s 80 ft roll-trailer with modified bogies.Bassøe added: “When the issue with the centre of gravity was solved, we had to ensure safe margins. We calculated the maximum inclination of the stern ramp in both the loading and discharge ports with respect to draft and tidal conditions.“Based on this, the required height above the ground the girder was calculated carefully in order to safely pass over the inclined ramp.”The oversized component was subsequently loaded onto Höegh Berlin for onward transportation to Bahrain.www.hoeghautoliners.comwww.kuehne-nagel.comwww.bechtel.comlast_img read more

Imbas Penumpang Turun Drastis, Bandara Hong Kong Satukan Pelayanan di Terminal…,Hindari Virus Corona, Penumpang ini Kenakan Helm di Kabin Pesawat!

first_imgBandara Internasional Hong Kong. Foto: South China Morning Post Bandara Internasional Hong Kong saat ini sudah mulai bersiap-siap menggabungkan semua penerbangan yang dilayaninya ke dalam bangunan Terminal Utama. Ini akan membuat pertemuan baru yang terletak di antara dua landasan pacu ketika penerbangan ke dalam dan luar kota turun dua pertiga dari biasanya.Baca juga: Dampak Virus Corona, Tiap Hari Bandara Changi Kehilangan 20 Ribu PelancongPenurunan jumlah penumpang ini dikarenakan virus corona atau yang dikenal dengan Covid-19. Hal ini membuat otoritas bandara berusaha untuk sementara menutup gedung yang dikenal sebagai concourse lini tengah meski tidak ada keputusan akhir yang dicapai karena diskusi dengan pemangku kepentingan yang terdampak seperti para pengecer. KabarPenumpang.com melansir laman scmp.com (20/2/2020), karena hal ini juga banyak fasilitas utama yang juga mulai memindahkan layanan ke gedung terminal utama. Diketahui, penyewa utama concourse adalah Hong Kong Airlines.Mereka saat ini sudah memangkas jumlah penerbangan harian yang biasanya mengoperasikan 40 penerbangan, kini hanya 15 penerbangan. Pada Rabu (19/2/2020), Hong Kong Airlines bahkan mengumumkan pemutusan hubungan kerja (PHK) pada 170 karyawannya.Concourse ini terletak ditengah-tengah HKIA dengan bentuk bangunan persegi panjang yang futuristik dan terhubung dengan 20 jembatan pesawat. Bangunan tersebut dibuka tahun 2015 dengan biaya HK$10 miliar untuk memenuhi permintaan yang melonjak bagi penerbangan di seluruh wilayah.Sekitar setengah dari fasilitas tersebut sekarang digunakan untuk memarkir jet yang tidak beroperasi. Jumlah harian penerbangan penumpang yang terbang masuk dan keluar dari Hong Kong telah turun dari 1050 menjadi sekitar 340, dengan lebih banyak pemotongan penerbangan diharapkan dalam beberapa minggu mendatang.Pada hari Rabu, HKIA menangani 160 penerbangan penumpang yang berangkat, mungkin yang terendah sejak wabah sindrom pernapasan akut (Sars) tahun 2003, ketika perjalanan udara masuk dan keluar Hong Kong terhenti. Kejadian di HKIA ini setara dengan Bandara Santos Dumont di Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, yang menangani 161 penerbangan penumpang pada hari yang sama.Bandara kedua di Rio itu biasanya menangani rata-rata tahunan 8,9 juta penumpang, sementara Hong Kong biasanya melihat 71,5 juta. Hong Kong Airlines, yang didukung oleh HNA Group, memiliki 14 keberangkatan yang dijadwalkan dari Hong Kong pada hari Kamis, namun demikian menyusut sehingga sekarang menjadi maskapai lokal terkecil.Sementara itu, HNA group diambil alih oleh pemerintah Hainan, provinsi pulau utama Cina selatan dan aset maskapai penerbangannya sedang diukir di antara pembawa “tiga besar” negara yang lebih aman secara finansial yakni Cina Selatan, China Eastern dan Air China. Pada hari Selasa, HKA menutup ruang tunggu bandara Club Autus di pusat lapangan tengah “hingga pemberitahuan lebih lanjut” dan fasilitas penumpang transitnya dipindahkan ke terminal utama.Baca juga: Operasional Terganggu Akibat Virus Corona, Ini Strategi Maskapai Dunia Maksimalkan Pesawat WidebodyPekan lalu, para pejabat bandara di Hong Kong melakukan mothball pada terminal annex yang lebih kecil, concourse satelit utara, yang memiliki ruang untuk delapan jet narrowbody, ketika Cathay Pacific Group memangkas kapasitasnya sebesar 30 persen hingga akhir MaretShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… Relatedlast_img read more

first_img 15/06/2015 Jose Ely de Miranda, also known as a footballer as Zito, was born in Roseira on the 8th of August 1932 and became a World Cup winner with Brazil in both 1958 and 1962.

Bellerin: I will be here until Del Bosque says so

first_imgArsenal right-back Hector Bellerin says it’s a “dream” to be with the Spanish national team, who he will remain with until the coach says so. On Tuesday, the final 23-man list for the European Championships will be named.  Bellerin added that he has “passed through all the Spanish youth teams and that’s a treat” because it has formed him and now he is living his “dream” of being with the full squad. He said Spain are a team “that plays football, which has the ball”, but also which “concedes very few goals”. On Sunday he received more positive news when it was revealed that, for now, he will continue with La Roja due to Carvajal’s fitness problems. He wanted to send a message of support to the Real Madrid man.  CEST The absence of Carvajal, who was on the original 25-man list which has to be cut to 23, has opened the door for Bellerin to go to Euro 2016. The Arsenal defender preferred to be cautious, though, when speaking on Monday as he waits for Del Bosque’s decision.  Bellerin is the only of the 11 young players called up by Vicente del Bosque to prepare for this summer’s tournament in France who is still with the squad, due to the injury suffered by Dani Carvajal in the final of the Champions League. center_img The Catalan said that before being called up for the pre-tournament training, he had planned a holiday with his girlfriend. It was, therefore, a “surprise” when he was named as one of the 11 young players who would train with the squad for the first week of preparation.  30/05/2016 at 18:05 EFE “The first thing I want to do is wish [Carvajal] a quick recovery. He is a team-mate and that is the most important thing. With respect to me, I will be here until the coach tells me otherwise,” he manifested. last_img read more
