Notting Hill and Sloane Square, for example, are the densest areas in London.” By Burdett’s calculations, London is 30 per cent bigger than it was when its population last peaked in 1939. Even if London’s population density grew, it would bring with it a raft of benefits. If everything is nearby, cars are used less, for example.  LSE Cities’ research finds that holding family income and size constant, petrol consumption per family per year declines by 106 gallons (401 litres) as the number of residents per square mile doubles. A higher population density can also facilitate a more diverse range of businesses and services than lesser ones can – such as hospitals, airports, theatres, and museums. London is also less dense than other major cities when commuter density is considered. The number of commuters entering a square km peaks at 21,000. This compares to 33,000 people per square km in Tokyo and 75,000 in Delhi. In terms of employment density, the number of jobs per square km in London peaks at 141,600 which is below New York at 151,600 but above Hong Kong at 120,200.

News / Smoother sailing for carriers with higher Asia-Europe contract freight rates

first_img By Gavin van Marle 16/05/2017 © Philipmorch Container carriers on the Asia-Europe trade are likely to return to profitability over the next three months, driven by significant increases in long-term contract freight rates.According to new figures from freight rate benchmarking platform Xeneta, the long-term contract freight rate for a 40ft box out of a Chinese main port to North Europe currently stands at $1,396, shipping in mid-May, some 120% higher than at the same time last year.It also represents a 10% increase in average contracts over the first three months of 2017. And the gains have been even greater at the lower end of the market that Xeneta’s data covers: at the end of Q1, the lowest contract rate for an Asia-Europe 40ft stood at $500.Midway through the second quarter, the lowest contract rate is some 25% higher, at $642, while the average rate through to the end of the first half of this year is likely to be $1,397 per 40ft.“I would be stunned if Maersk’s second-quarter results are not positive after the strong rates being contracted two months into the second quarter,” said Xeneta chief executive Patrik Berglund. He was referring to last week’s first-quarter results announcement in which the world’s largest container line reported a net loss of $66m.That was largely due to an increase in bunker costs, which had climbed to $320 per tonne compared with a 2016 average of $178.Mr Berglund added that contract negotiations on the Asia-Europe trade were largely complete, and he believed shippers would be unlikely to win any substantial cuts as the traditional shipping peak season loomed.“Long-term contract negotiations were postponed by many European shippers with the hopes that the container rate rally, which started in the fourth quarter and sprinkled into the beginning of the year, would halt. That wasn’t the case and perhaps many shippers may be kicking themselves.“With negotiations seemingly complete in Europe, Xeneta is showing that containers with contracts valid until mid-August sit at a market average price above $1,400.“There doesn’t seem to be a sign of a substantial decrease as we move into the summer, and if carriers can maintain, or even further improve, market conditions they’ll benefit and we’ll see better numbers for Maersk and perhaps for other carriers as well,” he said.However, pricing and space constraints on the backhaul leg out of North Europe to Asia have eased in recent weeks. The end of April saw the highest point, with a 40ft shipment fetching as much as $2,009. Mr Berglund said that had since declined by 7%.last_img read more

As the 2020 campaign kicks off, Democrats scramble to prove their leadership on lowering drug costs

first_img WASHINGTON — As they jostle to position themselves for 2020, many Democratic presidential hopefuls have suddenly zeroed in on a narrow policy target: prescription drug prices.Sen. Bernie Sanders called his first press conference since the midterms not to discuss President Trump’s quest for a wall or tout universalized health coverage, but to unveil a proposal to lower drug prices that mirrors one of Trump’s own. Sen. Cory Booker dialed up his own rhetoric to campaign-trail levels, decrying high drug prices as “a stain on the very idea of America.” The House Oversight Committee, too, set drug prices atop its own agenda, scheduling a hearing on that issue that will occur more than a week before it calls former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen to testify.

Kim Jong Eun Adding to NKHR Woe

first_img RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Entire border patrol unit in North Hamgyong Province placed into quarantine following “paratyphoid” outbreak The Kim Jong Il era keynote ‘military-first politics’ have been embraced without alteration by the regime of Kim Jong Eun, and the human rights situation in the country is getting worse not better, according to the analysis of a law professor from Chungang University, Jei Seong Ho. Speaking at a debate event yesterday, ‘Core Issues in North Korean Human Rights and the Response of the International Community’, Jei explained his conclusion, asserting, “Immediately following Kim Jong Il’s death on December 17th, 2011, ‘military-first politics’ was swapped for ‘rule of the last instructions’ and thus they are clearly continuing with his ‘military-first’ political inheritance.”Not only that, Jei went on, “For the purposes of maintaining the socialist system and securing the regime of Kim Jong Eun, North Korea is strengthening ideological controls and civilian surveillance. In reality, since the end of last year North Korea has been implementing the rule of fear and despotism; suppressing farmers’ and ordinary markets, actively pursuing defectors, banning the use of illegal cell phones and so on.”Therefore, he concluded, “The government of South Korea must closely analyze the Kim Jong Eun regime’s civilian controls and repressive line to promote a short- and long-term, all-encompassing and systematic human rights policy,” calling such a policy one that divides the North Korean regime from its people while also dividing South Korean government, NGO and international community roles to best effect.

NK’s Leader to Attend Russia’s V-Day Event, Kremlin Reports

first_img SHARE AvatarCho Jong Ik RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR News By Cho Jong Ik – 2015.01.28 4:27pm News News North Korea tries to accelerate building of walls and fences along border with China center_img Facebook Twitter Moscow announced on Wednesday that NorthKorea’s leader Kim Jong Eun has confirmed hisattendance at an event scheduled for May in Russia, marking the country’s 70th anniversary of defeating Germany in World War Two. The Kremlin verified this through awritten statement from spokesman Dmitry Peskov, issued in response toa request from South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency. “Roughly 20 state leaders have confirmed their attendance, and NorthKorea’s leader is one of them,”the statement read, though it did not explicitly refer to Kim Jong Eun by name. This is the first time a high-levelofficial from Moscow has confirmed Kim Jong Eun’s plansto attend the May festivities in Russia.“We are still in the process of confirmingwho will be attending, so the list has not been finalized,” the Kremlin press office added. It did not elaborate further onwhich countries had confirmed their attendance. Just like the 60th anniversary, thecountries invited encompass the Allies against Nazi Germany during World War Two,close partners and allies of Russia, and BRICS countries, according to theKremlin. During a press conference on the 21st, Russia’s ForeignMinister Sergei Lavrov said thatMoscow had received the “first sign of a positiveresponse” for Kim Jong Eun’s attendance. At the time, he also stated that roughly 20 other headsof state, including China’s Xi Jinping, had confirmed theirparticipation in the event. This announcement from Russia lends weight to the likelihood that Kim’s trip will materialize, but much time remains until the May event, and conditions surrounding theKorean Peninsula could shift abruptly, which is why some warn it is too earlyto tell whether he truly make the trip.Russia holds its V-Day event celebratingvictory against Nazi Germany on May 9th each year, and invites heads of stateto larger celebrations held every ten years. For the 60th anniversary, North Korea’s former leader Kim Jong Il was also invited but did not attend, while South Korea’s late president Roh Moo Hyun did.Leaders of 53 countries, including the then-President of the United States, George W. Bush, China’s Hu Jintao, and Japan’s Prime MinisterJunichiro Koizumi, attended at the time.

Photo courtesy Vancouver Police DepartmentStephen Rian Price, 26, is accused of sexually abusing two young children and distributing videos of the abuse online. Photo courtesy Vancouver Police DepartmentVancouver Police indicated the tip was labeled a Priority-1, which is rare and most often indicates an immediate danger to the child. The tip was generated by the app Discord, which is used as an online chat and media distribution service, primarily for online gamers. “Discord had found communications and video being shared on one of their channels that detailed the sexual assault of an infant by an adult male,” Vancouver Police said in a press release. “These graphic child sexual abuse videos had never before been seen by National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), which is a strong indicator that the abuse was recent and likely being conducted by the person uploading the content.”The Internet Protocol (IP) address reported by Discord returned to a location in Washougal. DECU investigators utilized exigent information requests, due to the grave concern for the safety of the infant seen in the video, to obtain information from various internet service providers, along with Discord, to assist detectives in identifying Stephen Rian Price as the suspect. DECU Detectives served a search warrant at Pierce’s address at 9:00 p.m. on Wednesday. The infant was taken to an area hospital for immediate medical attention and taken into protective custody. Price is in the Clark County Jail on the following charges:Rape of a Child, RCW 9A.44.073 (x 5)Child Molestation 1st Degree, (RCW 9A.44.083) (x1)Sexual Exploitation of a Minor, RCW 9.68A.040 (x3)Possession of Child Pornography First Degree, RCW 9.68A.070 (x4)Distribution of Child Pornography First Degree, RCW 9.68A.050 (x3)The investigation revealed that in addition to the sexual abuse and production of child pornography of an infant child, evidence was obtained of the rape and production of child pornography involving a second infant. DECU detectives will continue to investigate this case to locate other potential victims and identify other persons involved in the sharing of child sexual abuse content in the Discord chat room.Due to circumstances involving the suspect abusing and creating child pornography with local victims, detectives believe there are likely additional victims who have yet to be identified or located. Anyone with information related to this case, or of the existence of other potential victims is asked to contact the Vancouver Police Department Tip Line at (360) 487-7399.The arrest of this suspect and the rescue of this infant would not have been possible without the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and the cooperation of Discord. Also, thanks to the Washougal Police Department and the Department of Homeland Security for their assistance.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTags:Clark CountyLatestWashougalshare 0 Previous : Nov. 5 general election voter registration deadlines set Next : Your Week in Review – Episode 82 • October 18, 2019AdvertisementThis is placeholder text 0 Comments Inline FeedbacksView all commentscenter_img guestLabel Name*Email*Website Name*Email*Websitelast_img read more
