Despite strength in manufacturing and construction, natural resource and hospitality weakness drives job lossSMITHERS, British Columbia, Oct. 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- According to the BC Check-Up: Work report by the Chartered Professional Accountants of British Columbia (CPABC), Northwest B.C.’s workforce – which encompasses Nechako and the North Coast – was one of the hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. “The unemployment rate for the region this summer clocked in above 12 per cent, well over twice what we saw last year,” said Jeanne MacNeil, CPA, CA, partner at Edmison Mehr Chartered Professional Accountants. “Thankfully, the region has experienced a bounce back in employment through the summer from the lows seen earlier in the pandemic and that carried into September.”The number of employed workers in the region fell by 12 per cent in Summer 2020 (June to August) compared to last year, representing a total job loss of 5,200. However, the region saw 1,200 jobs return to the region in September, reducing the annual job loss to 8.4 per cent and the unemployment rate to 9 per cent.Despite the progress, some industries remain deeply affected. The service sector drove employment declines in the region, with nearly one in every six jobs displaced compared to last September. The hardest hit industry by a significant margin was accommodation and food services, where employment was down by nearly two-thirds, representing a job decline of 3,500 positions.“The service sector, in particular those industries relying on tourism, travel, and physical interaction, has struggled in the region due to the restrictions put in place to combat COVID-19,” continued MacNeil. “In a typical year, many businesses in these industries rely on summer months to be profitable for the year.”Meanwhile, goods sector employment experienced a sizeable job gain of 13.2 per cent, driven by manufacturing and construction activity in the region linked to LNG and port infrastructure projects. Employment in construction was up by nearly a third, while manufacturing increased nearly fifty percent, helping bring 2,900 jobs to the region. However, the number of positions in the natural resource industry, which includes forestry, mining and oil/gas, were down by 45.2 per cent to just 1,700 jobs.“The major infrastructure projects in the region and continued strength in manufacturing helped provide some economic stability,” concluded MacNeil. “However, it is clear Northwest B.C. is not immune to the economic fallout of the pandemic. It is critical that we continue to support workers and businesses, particularly those most harmed by this crisis.”Northwest B.C. 20192020 AugSeptAugSept Unemployment rate (%)54.912.29 Employment (1,000s)43.543.138.339.5 Part-time (1,000s)9.2987.9 Full-time (1,000s)34.434.130.331.6 To learn more, see www.bccheckup.com.

French President Emmanuel Macron declared Thursday that France is "under attack," hours after an Islamic terrorist wielding a knife decapitated a woman and killed two other people at a church in southern France.The attack occurred near the Basilica of Notre-Dame in Nice, a city on France’s southern coast. Two women and a man were killed. At least two of the three victims, including the woman who was reportedly decapitated, were inside the church.“It’s very clear that it is France that is under attack,” Macron said during an address outside the basilica where the attack occurred, calling the incident an "Islamist terrorist attack.”“France will not give up on our values," the French president said.Shortly after the attack, Macron boosted security around the country, increasing the number of soldiers at schools and places of worship from 3,000 to 7,000 troops.The French president also participated in a crisis meeting at the Interior Ministry on Thursday before traveling to Nice in the wake of the attack, which put France on its highest level of alert.Mayor Christian Estrosi said that the suspected knife attacker was shot by police while being detained and was taken to the hospital alive.The “terrorist” shouted “Allahu akbar,” which is Arabic for “God is great,” as police arrested him, the mayor said, adding that, “the meaning of his gesture left no doubt.”The incident was one of three attacks against France on Thursday. A Saudi man was arrested after he attacked a guard with a sharp tool at the French consulate in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, according to Saudi state media. The guard was hospitalized and suffered minor injuries. Meanwhile, an individual in the French city of Avignon wielded a knife and threatened people passing by while shouting “Allahu akbar” until police fatally shot the suspect.Earlier this month, Samuel Paty, a 47-year-old history teacher, was beheaded in a Paris suburb by an 18-year-old Moscow-born Chechen immigrant who was angered by Paty showing caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad to his class.After Paty was killed, Macron vowed to crack down on Islamic extremism in France, promising that “the fear is now going to change sides,” and that “the Islamists cannot be allowed to sleep peacefully in our country.”
A former U.S. embassy worker in Mexico is believed to have drugged and sexually assaulted as many as two dozen women, filming many of them while they were unconscious, according to federal prosecutors. Brian Jeffrey Raymond was arrested earlier this month in San Diego, where he had moved to after leaving his job in June. The FBI started investigating after Mexican police responding to a call May 31 found a woman naked and screaming from the balcony of a embassy-leased apartment in Mexico City.

(Bloomberg) -- Oil futures eased off session lows as stronger-than-expected U.S. economic growth data and signs that Europe may get more stimulus offset some of the fallout from renewed lockdown restrictions.Futures in New York pared losses after dropping below $35 a barrel to their lowest since June, while the global Brent benchmark also eased losses after sliding to a five-month low. The U.S. economy saw a record yet temporary surge of growth in the third quarter and European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde signaled a new package of monetary stimulus in December.“The GDP numbers suggest that there is an end to this situation, that all the news is not going to be negative and at least to some degree we’re seeing economic recovery,” said Michael Lynch, president of Strategic Energy & Economic Research. On the other hand, “all the Covid news seems to be that we’re shutting down, we’re increasing restrictions on behavior.”The demand outlook is still bleak with the European Union’s two biggest economies to impose month-long movement restrictions as nations across the continent post record coronavirus cases. A sorely needed boost to consumption in the form of U.S. stimulus will likely have to wait until after Nov. 3, with both sides at a standstill a week out from the election.“The reasons for ebb and flow of risk appetite remain Covid-related, with the announcement of a return to stricter lock down measures in Europe, notably France and Germany,” said Harry Tchilinguirian, oil strategist at BNP Paribas SA. “Add to that the all but vanished prospect of a fourth round of U.S. fiscal stimulus prior to the presidential election and you have a recipe for macro pessimism that is reverberating across various assets today.The forward market structure is also flashing warning signs, with the WTI strip for 2021 heading for its weakest close since May.“The market seems to be losing confidence in longer-term demand and is intent on creating an increased disincentive for investment in future capacity,” Standard Chartered analysts Paul Horsnell and Emily Ashford wrote in a report.Meanwhile, U.S. Gulf operators are still dealing with the effects of Zeta, with Royal Dutch Shell Plc shutting crude and natural gas production overnight in the Mars Corridor due to downstream impacts from the storm.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

The fundraising program is set to raise $250,000 before year’s end to help construct two STEM classrooms at the Mariano Rivera Learning Center in New Rochelle, New YorkNEW YORK, Oct. 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Four Keller Williams New York locations owned and run by Rich Amato, part of the Keller Williams franchise, have announced today they have teamed up with 1st Equity Title & Closing https://1stequity.com/, www.Pink Tie www.pinktie.org, a community-led charity that tackles tough social and economic issues to create opportunities for people in underserved communities in New York State, to launch a fundraising program, “MVP of the Year”, https://www.mvpoftheyear.org/ with former NY Yankee and Major League Hall of Famer, Mariano Rivera. The program is set to raise $250,000 before year’s end to help construct two STEM classrooms at the Mariano Rivera Learning Center in New Rochelle, New York.These STEM classrooms will create an environment that expands students’ knowledge in technology, engineering, mathematics, coding and product developments.“Together, as we launch the MVP Program, we will raise much needed funds to help build our Learning Center in New York to support and stabilize the future of our students living in low income communities,” explains Mariano Rivera. “We are grateful for organizations like Keller Williams and Pink Tie and appreciate all of the MVP of the Year fundraisers and teams who have committed their time and energy to this program for the sake of the underserved minority youth. The MVP of the Year program will help Learning Center students receive access to two STEM learning initiatives which will prepare them for a successful and advantageous future.”The “MVP of the Year” Program works thusly: The program consists of 10 teams all competing to see who raises the most money for the charity. Of those 10, two are from the KWNYC office located in Manhattan, “Team Sandyman”, headed by real estate agent Sandy Edry and “Team Ground-Breaking Ballers” headed by agent Allan Zapadinsky. Other KW teams include agents from Keller Williams Greater Nassau, Points North and Legendary locations.Each team runs their own fundraising events/activities to raise a minimum (guaranteed) of $25,000.For example, the two KWNYC teams plan a combination of fundraising activities including an online charity poker tournament in November, expecting 350 players, sponsorships, online auctions, drawings and a 5% commission donation from September through December.“As a Yankee fan since the mid-1970s, it is an absolute thrill and honor to be involved with Mariano’s charitable efforts – especially when it helps young New Yorkers scale the heights of educational excellence in the STEM arena," said Sandy Edry, licensed real estate agent, Keller Williams NYC.“Students from the most disadvantaged communities depended on libraries or public internet to finish their homework after school. Due to COVID-19, many of these establishments have closed. The digital divide has left behind thousands of young students who do not have access to the internet or a computer at home,” explains Daniella Decker, executive director, Pink Tie Charities. “Mariano Rivera’s Learning Center will quickly re-envision digital education and improve digital literacy capabilities in New Rochelle and the greater Westchester community.”The events will kick off with a NYC-based donor event and reception on October 29th featuring Mariano Rivera.To support the various fundraisers, donate to the Mariano Rivera STEM classrooms and learn more about the MVP of the Year fundraising competition, please visit: mvpoftheyear.org About the Mariano Rivera Foundation https://themarianoriverafoundation.org/ Founded in 1998 by Mariano and Clara Rivera, along with our caring volunteers and generous donors we have strengthened communities and changed lives through college scholarships, back-to-school events and disaster relief.

Third-quarter revenue was negative $33.7 million, a rare event for an S&P 500 company, as it reversed previously recorded income from refunds and cancellations. "It's been almost 7 months since we paused our cruise operations, and every single day has been extremely frustrating and challenging on so many levels," Chief Executive Officer Richard Fain told analysts. To resume operation and stem the losses, the company and its peer Norwegian Cruise Line have submitted their recommendations, detailing health protocols, to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Iowa State learned in an opening home loss to Louisiana-Lafayette that you can't overlook anybody in college football. Maybe that's why Cyclones coach Matt Campbell made winless Kansas sound like the best of Clemson and Alabama rolled into one this week. No. 23 Iowa State may be a massive favorite as it heads to Lawrence to take on the bumbling Jayhawks, but Campbell isn't about to let his players — or anyone else — believe that it will be a walk-over in Memorial Stadium.
