Small business owners upbeat about companies look to expand

first_imgNEW YORK — Small business owners are upbeat, looking to expand and worrying less about financial concerns like health costs.That’s the finding of a survey of 1,067 owners released last week by Bank of America. The survey shows owners are optimistic about the short and long term. Fifty-seven per cent said they expect their revenue to increase in the next 12 months, and 56 per cent have plans to increase business over the next five years. Two-thirds said they’re planning to expand in the coming year.The survey also shows owners are less worried about health care costs than they were a year ago even as the price of insurance is still an issue for many. Sixty-three per cent called health care a concern, compared to 72 per cent a year ago. Owners were also less concerned about consumer spending, commodities prices, the strength of the dollar and minimum wage increases. But they were slightly more concerned about interest rates, not surprising considering that the Federal Reserve has raised rates four times in the past year.The survey was conducted between late August and mid-September.A separate survey by Pepperdine University’s Graziadio Business School showed small business demand for outside financing, including equity investments and loans, was down just over 11 per cent from three months earlier. Just 27 per cent of companies tried to raise outside financing in the past three months.The drop in demand is likely due to the fact that companies are overall doing well. Fifty-five per cent said they didn’t seek financing because their cash flow is sufficient. Twenty-nine per cent said they had enough financing in place.Small businesses are becoming more successful in obtaining bank loans, another sign of their increasing health. Nearly 46 per cent said they were successful in getting loans, up from nearly 44 per cent three months earlier.Looking ahead, only 28 per cent of small businesses said they’re planning to raise financing in the next six months, a sign that owners expect to keep doing well. Strong cash flow and sufficient financing were again cited as reasons why owners aren’t seeking more money.The survey questioned 878 business owners during October. The companies had revenue up to $100 million. The survey, which broke out some data according to company size, considers a small business to be one with no more than $5 million in revenue._____For more small business news, insights and inspiration, sign up for our free weekly newsletter here: http://discover.ap.org/ssb_____Follow Joyce Rosenberg at www.twitter.com/JoyceMRosenberg .

Oregon hotel apologizes a week after kicking out black man

first_imgPORTLAND, Ore. — Attorneys for a black man who was kicked out of an Oregon hotel last week say they want a public explanation for why he was told to leave.Nearly a week later, the DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in Portland apologized Friday to Jermaine Massey on Twitter. He has accused the hotel of racially profiling him after a security guard called police to remove him from the lobby, Oregon Public Broadcasting reported .“We sincerely apologize to Mr. Massey for his treatment this past weekend, and deeply regret the experience he endured. It was unacceptable and contrary to our values, beliefs and how we seek to treat all people who visit our hotel,” the tweet said.The hotel also said the employees involved had been placed on leave and an investigation would be done.The security guard told Massey that if he could not provide a room number, he would be asked to leave. The Washington state resident was staying at the hotel and left with an officer, according to a police report.Massey posted a video on social media that shows part of the interaction with the guard.“He’s calling the cops on me because I’m taking a phone call at the DoubleTree hotel,” Massey says in the video. “I have not moved, I have been sitting here the whole time and they’re calling the police on me because I’m taking a phone call in the lobby. Did you ask any of those people walking by what room they were staying in? No.”General manager Paul Peralta said in a statement earlier this week that the hotel reached out to Massey to try to reach a resolution, noting the incident was “likely the result of a misunderstanding between our hotel and guest.”Massey said through his attorneys Thursday that he wasn’t interested in a closed-door discussion.“The hotel has requested a private discussion, but Mr. Massey was publicly humiliated,” attorneys Gregory and Jason Kafoury of the law firm Kafoury and McDougal wrote in a statement.The hotel should publicly answer why security approached and questioned Massey and explain how, as the guard said, Massey was a threat to security, his lawyers said.Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler said Friday that it was deeply troubling to hear about Massey’s experience.“No one should be treated this way, and I hope this serves as a catalyst for necessary changes that address the systemic nature of discrimination of all forms,” he wrote on Twitter.It’s the latest high-profile incident in which black people have been removed from businesses.Last month, police in the Seattle suburb of Kirkland helped the owner of a frozen yogurt shop kick out a black man because employees said they felt uncomfortable.Police in Philadelphia in April arrested two black men at a Starbucks coffee shop after a manager called police to say they refused to make a purchase or leave.Police, other city officials and business owners in those incidents later apologized.___Information from: KOPB-, http://www.opb.orgThe Associated Presslast_img read more


Palestinian economy wins boost from online programme for customs – UN

10 August 2009International businesses based in the West Bank are set to benefit from a state of the art web-based system for tracking goods coming in and out of the area, launched today by Palestinian customs in partnership with the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD). International businesses based in the West Bank are set to benefit from a state of the art web-based system for tracking goods coming in and out of the area, launched today by Palestinian customs in partnership with the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).The online system, known as ASYCUDA WORLD, will speed up transactions and lower costs for Palestinian exporters and importers, according to a news release issued by UNCTAD.Palestinian customs clearance agents and private trading companies will be able to process customs declarations and related documents electronically from their own premises without having to visit customs offices.UNCTAD said that the new software, the final stage in upgrading Palestinian customs’ computerized system, is also expected to improve the customs authority’s risk management and post-auditing processes, reduce fraud and smuggling, provide better data to inform public policy and increase customs and tax revenues. The launch ceremony – sponsored by Salam Fayyad, Palestinian Authority Prime Minster and Minister of Finance – was held in Ramallah, and attended by representatives from the European Commission (EC) and UNCTAD, the main partners for the Palestinian customs modernization programme. read more

ESCAP 70 years of UN efforts to advance socioeconomic development in Asia

PreviousNextUN News: Can you tell us about the current socio-economic development snapshot of the region and how this has changed over the past 70 years?Shamshad Akhtar:  Asia-Pacific is a very vibrant and dynamic region. It has come a long way since ESCAP was created in 1947 to assist countries emerging from the devastation of World War II. I have to say that the region has witnessed economic and social achievements beyond expectations – it is the region that led the drive for poverty reduction and is today known for being the driver of the global economic recovery. Asia-Pacific is the region that today accounts for 40 per cent of global trade.UN News: That said, Asia and the Pacific also has its fair share of challenges. Can you elaborate?Shamshad Akhtar:  Of course the region has challenges. Because the region is growing very fast, pollution is a major concern. Greenhouse gas emissions from Asia-Pacific account for over half of the total greenhouse gas emissions around the world [and this is] just based on the performance of few countries.There are about 400 million people still poor in the region. This number rises to 900 million if measured using the multi-dimensional poverty index. So reducing poverty is a major issueSecondly, the region has been at the frontier of export-led development. Now it is time for it to move towards domestic-driven growth. Given its potential and the value-added relationships that it has developed, Asia-Pacific has the potential to further stimulate the regional demand.Another challenge is poverty. There are about 400 million people still poor in the region. This number rises to 900 million if measured using the multi-dimensional poverty index, so reducing poverty is a major issue.Furthermore, some larger economies in the region are undergoing rebalancing from excessive structural surpluses to stimulating more domestic demand-led growth.Also, there is the question on how to absorb the growing workforce because there will be significant demographic changes that the region will face – both in terms of further growth in population as well as in terms of the rise in the aging population.

Photo: ESCAP archives UN News: In light of these challenges, as well as for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, what has ESCAP been doing to assist its members?Shamshad Akhtar:  For the 2030 Agenda, ESCAP’s intergovernmental focus and work programme has been transformed to support the development of a cohesive, coherent and coordinated institutional framework, which is called the Asia-Pacific Forum on Sustainable Development.Also, our member States have worked with us to develop a regional road-map for implementation of the 2030 Agenda and they have also given mandates to have a regional follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda. We are updating our analysis of regional cooperation and integration to help strengthen the sustainable development agenda. This will in turn, help the region get connected in a much more sustainable mannerWe will carry on this work while continuing to support the implementation of sustainable development through our second core mandate – Regional Cooperation and Integration in Asia and the Pacific. We are also updating our analysis of regional cooperation and integration to help strengthen the sustainable development agenda. This will in turn, help the region get connected in a much more sustainable manner. At the same time, the 2030 Agenda includes a number of transboundary goals so we hope to leverage regional cooperation and integration to fast-track implementation of these particular goals. We are also supporting the means of implementation of the 2030 Agenda: We have a track for financing for development in Asia-Pacific where we are raising awareness on the significance of, as well as on the means of, boosting domestic resource mobilization, in particular the tax-to-GDP ratio as well as formulating tax policies that are supportive of the sustainable development agenda.We also continue to work on infrastructure financing and capacity building, and also looking at climate change, financial inclusion, science, technology and innovation, and a range of other issues.UN News: You mentioned the fact that the Asia-Pacific region is very diverse. How are you able to cover the entire region while operating out of Bangkok? Shamshad Akhtar: The ESCAP region covers a lot of countries. It has 53 member countries and nine associate members. Given the diversity of the region, we have subregional offices across the region: one in Suva, Fiji, for the Pacific; in Incheon, Republic of Korea, for North and North-East Asia; in Delhi, India, for South and South-West Asia; and in Almaty, Kazakhstan for North and Central Asia.These offices both maintain relationships with the countries as well as coordinate and conduct core work programmes in their respective subregions. The work programme of the subregional offices and the functional divisions [at ESCAP headquarters in Bangkok] are aligned, making sure that leadership comes from the principal office in Bangkok and support from the subregional offices.UN News: The Commission will be holding its seventy-third session during the week of 14 May. What are the major issues on the agenda?Shamshad Akhtar: The session will be revolving around issues concerning sustainable development as well as the regional cooperation and integration agenda.  We will also be discussing a thematic report on energy efficiency. Having expanded our work programme to include energy, this will help us promote sustainable energy for all, while enhancing energy connectivity in the region and diversifying energy sources to include renewable sources.We will also be discussing the overall economic and social situation in the region in addition to our core mandate of sustainable development and how they mutually support each other.

As Executive Secretary of the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), Shamshad Akhtar leads an entity with a geographical scope that stretches from Turkey in the west to the Pacific island nation of Kiribati in the east, and from Russia in the north to New Zealand in the south, and covers a region that is home to 4.1 billion people, or two-thirds of the world’s population.Founded in 1947, as the then Economic Commission for Asia and the Far-East, to assist the region’s countries with economic reconstruction in the devastating aftermath of the Second World War, the Commission’s geographical scope and mandate were expanded in the 1970s to reflect changes on the ground.When ESCAP convenes its 73rd session next week at its headquarters in Bangkok, top government officials will discuss further strengthening the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).In addition, member States will deliberate on regional cooperation for sustainable energy, an issue vital in a region where millions suffer from severe energy insecurity and lack of access. Also on the agenda are exchanges on infrastructure development in least developed, landlocked developing and Pacific island developing countries, applications of space technology for environment and resilience against water-related disasters.UN News spoke to Ms. Akhtar, a Pakistani national and seasoned economist, about development efforts in the region, including ongoing challenges, as well as the work of ESCAP and what is expected during the upcoming session.

Photo: Tom Perry/World Bank PreviousNextUN News: What are the major outcomes expected this year?Shamshad Akhtar: Deliberations at the Commission will provide us with greater understanding on what support the region and the countries need from ESCAP. The Commission will guide us on what we can do for the member States to further support them in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and other mandates that have been assigned to us. But the ultimate test will be how we can match the demand with the supply.UN News: Would you like to add anything else?The regional commissions are a very important arm of the UN. However, because they are not based in New York, they often are not so visibleShamshad Akhtar: One thing I would like to mention is that regional commissions are a very important arm of the United Nations. However, because they are not based in New York, they often are not so visible.The technical work done at the subregional level or at the country level is actually being done by the regional commissions. We play a very important role in connecting the global with the national through the bridge of the regional commissions. We are going to be supporting a lot of knowledge-sharing and all kinds of technical work at the regional level, not for the sake of doing it, but to ensure that these are all consolidated with the discussions at the global level. read more

TMobile CEO 10 Percent of Customers Leave for iPhone

first_imgSo, how much does not carrying the iPhone hurt a service like T-Mobile? Quite a bit, apparently. According to a rather candid T-Mobile CEO Phillip Humm, ten percent of the two percent who leave T-Mobile every month are jumping ship to get their hands on a shiny new iPhone.Sure ten percent of two percent doesn’t seem like a huge number, but that certainly adds up–particularly if the carrier doesn’t plan to join Verizon and AT&T on the list of iPhone-friendly carriers. And from what Humm says, it doesn’t sound like T-Mobile plans to do so any time soon.You see, the reason why Humm mentioned this interesting statistic during an investor call is to highlight the carrier’s plan to get and keep more subscribers: cheap Android phones. T-Mobile will apparently be launching a number of Google-friendly phones that will run less than $100, with data plans under $10.So, what do you think? In the wake of another iPhone snub, can T-Mobile reinvent itself as the budget carrier?last_img read more


Apple quietly upgrades the MacBook Pro line

first_imgUsually Apple updating one of its line of products comes with a mass of media attention, a keynote, and people scrambling to order the new device. That’s not the case with Apple’s latest product refresh, which seems to have been rolled out quietly earlier today or late last night.If you visit the Apple Store you may notice the MacBook Pro options looking slightly different. That’s because Apple has upgraded the internals of each model with new processors, graphics cards, and storage options.First up, even though the internals have been upgraded, the price of each model has stayed the same. Whether you see that as a plus depends on how expensive you think Apple products are to begin with, but at least they haven’t become even more so.The MacBook Pro 13-inch model now has a 2.4GHz Core i5 or a 2.8GHz Core i7 processor, both of which are dual-core chips. The standard hard drive options have also been increased to 500GB and 750GB respectively. So more speed and more storage for the smallest Pro.The 15-inch model now has 2.2GHz and 2.4GHz quad-Core i7 options, plus the 2.4GHz option ships with an AMD Radeon HD 6770M and 1GB RAM. The 17-inch model also sports the 2.4GHz quad-core i7 and 6770M GPU.Of course, you can upgrade each of those laptops to suit your needs, but then it will obviously cost you even more. Prices start at $1,199 as it is, going up to $2,499 for the base 17-inch model. Adding more memory and an SSD can easily take that past $3,000.At those prices you may be drawn to something cheaper, maybe the MacBook Air? I’m sure Apple won’t mind which you buy.More at Apple, via This is my nextlast_img read more


Latest drone duty Delivering lifesaving kidney for successful implant

first_img Sci-Tech Drones Wellness Share your voice Post a comment 0 Enlarge ImageA kidney arrives after taking flight. UMMC video screenshot by Leslie Katz/CNET A Baltimore woman is now the proud owner of a kidney like no other: it was the first organ to be delivered for transplant via drone and then successfully implanted. The donated kidney, held in a special cooler, was flown via a custom drone with eight rotors from a location in West Baltimore a few miles to the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC). There, it was implanted in a 44-year-old woman who had spent the previous eight years on dialysis. “This whole thing is amazing,” the patient, who did not disclose her name, said in a statement. “Years ago, this was not something that you would think about.” The flight, which only lasted about 10 minutes, was intended as a demonstration of the custom unmanned aerial system (UAS). Teams from UMMC had previously shown that an organ could be transported via a drone, but this appears to be the first time one has actually been implanted after a flight.”We had to create a new system that was still within the regulatory structure of the FAA, but also capable of carrying the additional weight of the organ, cameras, and organ tracking, communications, and safety systems over an urban, densely populated area,” said Matthew Scassero, director of the University of Maryland’s UAS test site.center_img Tags The project was led by Joseph Scalea, one of the surgeons who performed the transplant. He hopes UAS can help to streamline the system of getting organs to patients who need them quickly.”This is a complicated web of couriers and expensive charter flights, which, in my opinion, could be avoided.”Scalea says using drones to shave up to a few hours off the delivery time of organs could mean that up to 2,500 more such organs become viable for implantation. Nearly 114,000 people were on waiting lists for an organ transplant in 2018, according to the United Network for Organ Sharing, which manages the organ transplant system in the US. Over 36,000 transplants were performed in 2018 in the US.There’s still more research to be done to ensure that flying through the air in a box is a safe mode of transport for all organs, and systems also need to be put in place to manage this whole new class of critical deliveries. But eventually, kidneys and other body parts could be zipping through the air to save lives on a daily basis. That is, so long as vultures and other birds of prey don’t get wise to what’s in those slow-flying containers.  Droneslast_img read more


2020 Ford Escape SE Sport Hybrid debuts to split the difference

first_imgGuys, it comes in green. Ford Ford has been slowly working to change the perception of hybrid and electrified vehicles. Take the forthcoming Lincoln Aviator for example. In its top-spec Grand Touring trim, a plug-in hybrid powertrain is standard with 494 horsepower and 630 pound-feet of torque. Thrifty and sporty, no?Clearly, that ethos has seeped into the 2020 Ford Escape SE Sport Hybrid, which the automaker revealed on Tuesday alongside the compact crossover’s build configurator. We’ve known the SE Sport trim was coming with a standard hybrid powertrain but this is our first look at how Ford plans to draw those looking for racier looks while delivering efficient drives.Digging through the configurator, the SE Sport Hybrid builds upon the standard SE trim but replaces the 1.5-liter turbo-3 engine with a 2.5-liter Atkinson cycle inline-4 and electronically controlled CVT. Ford estimates the powertrain will make 198 hp and the EPA projects drivers will go more than 550 miles on a single tank. With a base price of $29,450, after a hefty $1,195 destination charge, the perky and efficient crossover is pretty well equipped.There’s a standard 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, 10-way power driver’s seat, heated front seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and keyless access with push-button start. The digital instrument cluster and leather-wrapped steering wheel are extras atop the regular SE trim.Outside, the 2020 Escape SE Sport Hybrid gets black 17-inch wheels, trim molding and grille accents to look the part. Honestly, the black accents look good with any color that’s part of the Escape’s palette and you should be delighted to know there’s a green hue available — Dark Persian Green, to be specific. Rapid Red is the only extra-cost color and adds $395 to the SE Sport’s price. All-wheel drive is also optional and costs another $1,500.Overall, the SE Sport seems like a pretty well-packed value with most of the popular options included. For $3,395 more, buyers can also add a Premium Package that bundles fancier 19-inch wheels, a power liftgate, adaptive cruise control and other comforts.Elsewhere, those looking for the least expensive 2020 Escape will be shown an Escape S that will start at $26,080. At the top of the lineup is the Escape Titanium at $34,595. Note, the hybrid powertrain is also standard here, but a 2.0-liter turbo-4 with 250 hp is available for another $2,885. Opting for the more powerful engine also nets AWD standard.We’re eager to get some seat time with the 2020 Escape, but perhaps just as eager to see what Ford has cooking for those who feel the new Escape is too car-like. There’s a “Baby Bronco” coming for that crowd.

first_img by ALANNA DURKIN RICHER, The Associated Press Posted Jul 8, 2019 11:35 am PDT Last Updated Jul 9, 2019 at 5:39 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email BOSTON — The man who accused Kevin Spacey of groping him at a Massachusetts resort island bar in 2016 asserted his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination and refused to testify Monday after being questioned about text messages the defense claims were deleted.The man’s decision not to testify caused the judge to question the viability of the case against the two-time Oscar winner, whose career collapsed in 2017 amid a string of sexual misconduct allegations.Spacey’s accuser was ordered to take the stand after he said he lost a cellphone sought by the defense, which says the man deleted messages that support Spacey’s claims of innocence and provided investigators with manipulated screenshots of conversations.The accuser, speaking publicly for the first time, said he gave police what he had “available” to him “at the time” and did not alter any of the messages.“I have no knowledge of any deletions of messages on my phone,” the man said.The Associated Press does not typically name people who say they are the victims of sexual assault unless they identify themselves publicly. Spacey pleaded not guilty to indecent assault and battery in January.After being pressed by Spacey’s lawyer about whether he knew that altering evidence used in a prosecution is a crime, the man invoked his right against self-incrimination, and the judge said his testimony Monday would be stricken from the record.Spacey’s lawyer urged the judge to dismiss the case, calling it “completely compromised.”The judge said he would not immediately dismiss the case, but acknowledged prosecutors would have a tough time bringing it to trial if the man won’t testify.“Once exercised, it may be pretty hard to get around this privilege at trial,” Judge Thomas Barrett said. “The matter may well be dismissed for the reasons indicated,” he said.The man’s cellphone has been a key issue in the case against Spacey, who is accused of groping the then 18-year-old at a popular Nantucket bar and restaurant, where the man worked as a busboy. The allegations were first made in 2017 by the man’s mother, former Boston TV anchor Heather Unruh.The accuser’s lawyer, Mitchell Garabedian, said they cannot find the phone, but were able to retrieve a copy of its contents that had been backed up to a computer.But Spacey’s lawyer said that’s not enough.“None of that answers the central question, which is: Where is the actual phone? That’s what we want. That’s what we’re entitled to, and we still don’t have it,” Attorney Alan Jackson said.Unruh told investigators that she deleted items concerning her son’s “frat boy activities” from the phone before giving it to authorities. She acknowledged Monday deleting things that “concerned” her but denied touching text messages or anything else relevant to the case.Spacey was not required to attend Monday’s hearing, and he did not appear.The accuser’s testimony came days after he voluntarily dismissed a lawsuit that he had filed against the actor about a week earlier.There was no settlement, Unruh said Monday. The man’s lawyer said the case was dropped because the accuser is on an “emotional rollercoaster” and wants to focus on the criminal matter.“He only wanted one roller coaster ride at a time. The criminal case is enough,” Garabedian said.The man told police he went over to talk to Spacey after his shift ended at Nantucket’s Club Car bar because he wanted to get a picture with the actor. He said Spacey bought him several drinks and tried to persuade him to come home with him before unzipping the man’s pants and groping him for about three minutes.The accuser told police he tried to move Spacey’s hands, but the groping continued, and he didn’t know what to do because he didn’t want to get in trouble for drinking because he was underage. The man said he fled when Spacey went to the bathroom.Spacey’s lawyer indicated that the defense would file a written motion to dismiss the case in the coming days. The judge set another hearing for July 31. FILE – In this Jan. 7, 2019 file photo, actor Kevin Spacey arrives at district court in Nantucket, Mass.
