Canada Post racking up close to 1 million a year in parking

first_imgTORONTO — Canada Post is racking up close to $1 million annually in parking tickets as drivers struggle to navigate increasingly congested city streets, data show.The information, obtained by The Canadian Press through freedom of information requests, indicates the bulk of the citations are in and around Toronto.“To meet the needs of Canadians, our employees have to routinely park their vehicles,” said Canada Post spokesman Jon Hamilton. “With the concentration of addresses in urban downtown cores and a rising demand for pickups and deliveries, this can cause challenges, not just for Canada Post but for all delivery companies.”Data show the Crown corporation has paid out almost $7.5 million in parking fines over the past decade. The worst year was in 2016 with $943,293 paid, slightly more than last year’s $914,831, and almost quadruple the $289,908 recorded in 2009.Under the federal Canada Post Act, the corporation has, with some exceptions, the “sole and exclusive privilege of collecting, transmitting and delivering letters to the addressee thereof within Canada.” The corporation has a fleet of almost 13,000 vehicles that delivered close to eight billion pieces of mail last year.Eric Holmes, a spokesman for the City of Toronto, said mailbox placements are approved with the “general preference” they not be placed along high-volume streets.“Illegally parking, stopping, or standing a vehicle is dangerous for pedestrians, cyclists and other motorists and creates congestion,” Holmes said. “Enforcement of parking violations is one way the City of Toronto helps deter this behaviour.”Hamilton said the corporation was an “active participant” in partnerships with Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver that aim to ease congestion, especially in downtown cores and along major access routes.“We also review our operations to make changes, such as adjusting pickup and delivery times, where possible,” Hamilton said. “It’s a bigger discussion than simply designating more delivery zones.”Overall, the fines are barely a rounding error for Canada Post, which lost $270 million last year on revenue of $6.6 billion dollars — three-quarters of the corporation’s total revenues. The company initially refused a June 2016 request for the ticket data, citing “commercial sensitivity.”It relented in June after belated intervention from the information commissioner and released the total value of tickets by region paid from 2009 until mid-2016. Asked for updated figures, the country’s largest retail network insisted on receiving a new formal access-to-information request before providing them.All regions of Canada show ticketing of branded Canada Post vehicles, but most citations are in major urban centres, where thousands of mail addresses can be concentrated in a few blocks. Despite the daunting logistics of pickup and delivery, a Toronto traffic police spokesman was blunt:“This is an easy one,” Sgt. Brett Moore said. “There is no preferential treatment for Canada Post.”In general, Canada Post’s drivers are on the hook for traffic violations. However, company policy makes allowance for parking tickets — with an excuse — except in designated accessibility spots.Emilie Tobin, with the Canadian Union of Postal Workers, said the idea of parking exemptions for Canada Post vehicles is a complex topic given that the company is federally regulated but drivers have to follow varying provincial and municipal bylaws.“In some areas, it is difficult to find a legal parking space, so our members do have to park illegally and some do incur parking tickets,” Tobin said. “It’s not an ideal system and postal workers would prefer that routes could be structured in a way that allowed for legal parking 100 per cent of the time.”The Canadian Press first published this story on Sept. 29, 2019.Colin Perkel, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Police dressed as ATM thieves to make criminal April Fool

first_imgNEW DELHI: In a filmy style scene, Delhi police team dressed in Lungi and Kurta disguised themselves as ATM thieves to lure a man into the conversation who has created menace in Dwarka with ATM machine thefts.The police zeroed in on a criminal after analysing CCTV footage of the ATM thefts in the area.

Economic and Social Council wraps up historic monthlong session

25 July 2008The Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) today wrapped up its annual substantive session, which this year focused on efforts to achieve sustainable development and saw the holding of the first ever Development Cooperation Forum. “It was truly a historic session, as it implemented the new functions of the Council in their entirety,” the Council’s President, Leo Mérorès of Haiti, said at the conclusion of the session. It was during this session that the first biennial Development Cooperation Forum (DCF) – bringing together representatives from governments, the private sector, inter-governmental organizations (NGOs) and academia – convened to discuss technical aspects of development cooperation issues. The Forum was established in 2005 to help make development activities within and outside the UN more coherent and streamlined, particularly as more and more groups and entities become involved in the delivery of aid. “The Forum indeed constitutes one of the central pillars of the new, revitalized Economic and Social Council,” he said, adding that significant strides were made in positioning the Council as the principal forum for global dialogue and policy review on the effectiveness and coherence of international development cooperation. Another vital part of the session was the holding of the second Annual Ministerial Review, which featured presentations from four developing and four developed countries on lessons learned in development assistance. Mr. Mérorès noted that the developing countries had agreed on one common theme – that poverty eradication could only be achieved by pursuing development which is economically, socially and ecologically sustainable. At the same time, the developed countries acknowledged the gaps in their development cooperation strategies while highlighting successes with their development partners, he added. During its session, the Council also addressed a number of emerging challenges such as climate change, rising food and oil prices and biodiversity loss. The Under-Secretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs underscored the crux of the Council’s messages on these issues, stressing first and foremost that there are no piecemeal solutions and that these challenges should be addressed in a comprehensive manner. “There is also a clear need for both short-term and long-term measures,” Sha Zukang told the concluding session, particularly in the case of the food and fuel crises. He also emphasized collective action as central to the success of global efforts to find lasting and durable solutions to these challenges. “ECOSOC can serve as an effective forum for launching such action,” he pointed out. “We need to fully utilize the potential of the Council.” Among the other outcomes of the session, the two officials cited the message from this year’s humanitarian segment that further strengthening of the provision of humanitarian assistance is needed so that it becomes more timely, accountable, equitable and accessible. The Council also advanced its work in the area of peacebuilding and post-conflict development, most notably by again extending the mandate of the ECOSOC Ad Hoc Advisory Group on Haiti, in recognition of the role that the Council can play in supporting the country’s long-term development. ECOSOC, which serves as the central UN forum for discussing international economic and social issues and formulating policy recommendations, began its 2008 substantive session on 30 June. read more

UK MP meets Deputy Speaker

British Member of Parliament Simon Danczuk met Deputy Speaker Chandima Weerakkody today and raised concerns over the failure by the government to put to trial the suspects in the murder of British national Khuram Shaikh.The British Labour MP, who is on a two day visit to Sri Lanka, also met MP Thilanga Sumathipala as well as members of the opposition including UNP MP Dayasiri Jayasekera. Simon Danczuk told the Colombo Gazette that during his meetings today he had pushed for justice over the Tangalle murder of the British national in 2011. Eight men, who are said to have been armed and drunk – and to include a prominent local politician with ties to the government – are accused of attacking him. Stabbed and shot, Khuram died while a female colleague who was with him was assaulted and left badly injured.Simon Danczuk said that despite assurances from the government that those responsible for Khuram’s murder would be severely dealt with, so far the suspects have not been charged in court.The Foreign Office, which has been keeping the Shaikhs informed of developments on the island, is also urging action. It said in a statement last year that “The UK cannot interfere in Sri Lanka’s legal system, but we hope that a trial occurs without any undue delay to bring the perpetrators of this terrible crime to justice.” (Colombo Gazette) He was accompanied by Khuram’s brother, Nasir Shaikh, who has been campaigning for Khuram’s killers to be brought to justice.Khuram, who had just spent months fitting prosthetic limbs in Gaza, was spending Christmas and the new year in Sri Lanka when, early on Christmas morning in 2011, when he became involved in an altercation at his hotel in Tangalle. The British MP said he will brief British officials on his return to London regarding the outcome of his visit to Sri Lanka. Report by Easwaran Rutnam read more

Annans legacy as SecretaryGeneral hailed by UN Assembly as successor is sworn

Standing and applauding, the 192-member United Nations General Assembly today paid a thunderous and prolonged tribute to Secretary-General Kofi Annan at the end of his 10-year tenure before swearing in his successor Ban Ki-moon, who takes over as the world’s top diplomat on 1 January. Both Mr. Annan and Mr. Ban stressed the indissoluble links uniting security, development and human rights as the three pillars of the UN, without any one of which world peace will not be achieved.Earlier, by acclamation the Assembly adopted a resolution of tribute for Mr. Annan who, in the words of Assembly President Sheikha Haya Rashed al-Khalifa, has devoted his life to the world body.“His career has been unique,” she said. “He has risen through the ranks of the United Nations and devoted his life’s service to the Organization. So, today we are not only bidding farewell to the current Secretary-General, but also to one of the longest-serving officials of the United Nations.” She stressed that Mr. Annan has stood at the helm as the UN has become a more effective global actor and demands for its services have grown over the past 10 years.“We are grateful to Kofi Annan for having set out a far-reaching reform framework to make the Organization more relevant to the people of the world: a United Nations that lives to serve humanity and the principles of multilateralism,” Sheikha Haya declared.“Kofi Annan will leave a lasting legacy. He has guided the United Nations into the 21st century with vision and leadership. As a result the multilateral system is stronger,” she added.Her words were echoed by the representatives of the various regional groups, who praised Mr. Annan’s role in facing the many challenges confronting the world at large and the UN itself by promoting peace, humanitarian aid, human rights, development for the poor, and wide-ranging reform for the Organization as epitomized by his 2005 report, In Larger Freedom.In response Mr. Annan noted that despite many difficulties and some setbacks in the past decade “we have achieved much that I am proud of,” citing UN reforms in particular.The Organization “became more transparent, accountable and responsive,” he said. “It began to better address the needs of individuals worldwide. It faced emerging threats, as well as familiar ones, head-on.“And it internalized the notion that development, security and human rights must go hand in hand; that there can be no security without development and no development without security, and neither can be sustained in the longer term without being rooted in the rule of law and respect for human rights,” he added.“I depart convinced that today’s UN does more than ever before, and does it better than ever before. Yet our work is far from complete – indeed, it never will be.” The Assembly rose in prolonged applause at the end of Mr. Annan’s speech. read more

How a trivial argument on a Surrey train turned to murder in

A father of one, who was taking his teenage son on a day trip to London, was brutally stabbed to death within three minutes of getting into a minor dispute with a fellow rail passenger, it emerged on Sunday. Lee Pomeroy, a 51-year-old IT consultant from Surrey, exchanged words with another man as they boarded the 1.01pm South Western Trains service from Guildford London Road station bound for Waterloo. But almost immediately the argument escalated into extreme violence and by the time the train reached the next stop of Clandon, just four minutes later, Mr Pomeroy lay dying from a stab wound to the neck. British Transport Police (BTP) confirmed that the victim and his attacker were not known to…

Padres announce plans to extend protective netting at Petco Park

first_img March 12, 2018 Categories: Local San Diego News Tags: KUSI Sports, padres, Petco Park, San Diego Padres FacebookTwitter Posted: March 12, 2018 KUSI Newsroom SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — The Padres Monday announced details of the team’s effort to cover more of Petco Park with protective netting aimed at making the ballpark safer for spectators.The netting will be installed to the end of Section 116 in left field and Section 115 in right field and have a maximum height of 24 feet before tapering down along the foul lines.The expanded netting plan was initially announced in September. All 30 Major League Baseball teams in February agreed to expand their netting to at least the far ends of both dugouts by the start of this season. The Padres’ plan exceeds those parameters, according to the team.“The security and well-being of our fans is our number one priority at Petco Park,” a Padres statement said. “We feel the new netting design drastically improves the safety of our patrons, while the state-of-the-art materials will have a minimal effect on the fan experience as it pertains to the view of the field and sight lines of our ballpark.”The netting is lightweight and dyed green in order to meet MLB guidelines to reduce visible impact of the barrier.

Habitats first family still grateful

first_imgThere’s no telling what life might have been like for the Johnson family, if not for their Habitat for Humanity home.“This house means everything to us,” said Cindy Johnson, 49. “If it wasn’t for Habitat, there would be no place affordable enough.”Three children were raised here. Numerous relatives and friends in trouble stayed here when they had nowhere else to go.“I don’t think I’d be alive” without the sky-blue, three-bedroom place at the end of Northeast 98th Avenue, said Michael Johnson, 50. He’s endured multiple layoffs for years, and fought drug addiction on and off, too. He’s been clean for four years now, he said, but he’s unemployed and his body is worn down from hard labor. He’s also going blind in both eyes due to glaucoma.High school sweethearts, Michael and Cindy married and started building a family in a poorly ventilated, leaking mobile home in a Battle Ground trailer park when they heard about a new kind of charity homebuilder in the area. They became Clark County’s first Evergreen Habitat for Humanity homeowners.“It’s been a blessing,” Michael said. “I never thought I could own my own home like this.”Decades later, Evergreen Habitat for Humanity just held a 20th anniversary “Toolbox Bash” in Ridgefield to celebrate its modest but solid track record of building 21 new homes and housing 88 individuals, including 56 children, in Clark County. It broke ground Sunday on the seventh and final home at Patten Park, a Habitat development near Five Corners. This year it’s expecting to complete three new homes, according to Executive Director Josh Townsley, and make offers on several more Vancouver properties; it also watched with pride as two of its original homes were resold by owners moving onward and upward into better situations.last_img read more

Indulging in art

first_imgDrawing may be called the crystallization of an idea. To many artists, drawing is that integral part of the artistic process wherein many a nebulous thought is actualized with lines, textures, shape and form. Drawing sensibilities pervade all visual media yet drawing can be independent of all other media. To discuss the idea, India International centre is going to host ‘Drawing about Drawing’, an exhibition by Rohini Sen.‘Drawing about Drawing’ as the title suggests, is a tribute to the process of drawing and its partnership with the artist.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’She says that drawings are an attempt to represent what drawing might mean to the artist as well as introspect about how drawing is taught and learned today. “When the need to draw something is juxtaposed with the fear of not being able to perfectly recreate on paper the idea that lingers in the mind, one can trace back this deep seated feeling of fear to the way art classes are conducted in schools and colleges today,” she says. Some drawings in this collection wonder about how colonial pedagogical practices continue to rule over art teaching in India today – whether it is the way art is assessed in art schools or kindergarteners in schools who for decades together have been learning that the sun shines with a smiley face behind V-shaped mountains overlooking a bright cobalt blue river.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThis show is an experiment to bring to the forefront several nuggets of the role that drawing potentially could play or is already playing in our lives. A series of four drawings in this collection deal with the response to a natural calamity. Drawing for Resilience: Nepal 2015, were made shortly after the Nepal earthquake when a close family member happened to be visiting Nepal at the time and experienced the earthquake from very close quarters.  The four drawings try to lay out a narrative of hope and prayer after a phase of despair and destruction. These drawings emblematize the idea that the act of drawing is indeed a cognitive action and like grammar in language, drawing too is an equal way of responding. Her relationship with drawing, as a student and then as a professional artist-teacher began as a troublesome relationship of fear, hesitation and resistance and magically transformed in to one of curiosity, love and longing. Her aesthetic affinities and drawing tendencies are somewhat rooted in the Madhubani tradition – this folk art style became an inseparable part of my artistic identity during art classes at The Rishi Valley School where she studied.When: December 5 to 11Where: Art Gallery, IIC Annexe, Lodhi EstateTimings: 11 am to 7 pmlast_img read more

Brazilian scientists to test AIDS vaccine on monkeys

first_imgSÃO PAULO, Brazil – Brazilian scientists have developed an HIV vaccine and plan to begin testing on monkeys later this year, a sponsor institution said Monday.Known as the HIVBr18, the vaccine against the virus that causes AIDS was developed and patented by a team from the Medicine Faculty of the University of São Paulo, the São Paulo state Research Foundation (FAPESP) said.The scientists said that, at its current stage of development, the vaccine would not totally eliminate the virus from the organism.But the vaccine would be able to maintain it at a viral load low enough that the infected person will neither develop an immunodeficiency nor transmit the virus, they explained.The foundation said the monkey trials are expected to last two years.“Our goal is to test various immunization methods to select the one capable of inducing a stronger immunological response and thus be able to test it on humans,” FAPESP quoted Cunha Neto as saying.Provided adequate funding is available, the first clinical trials could then be launched, it added.Work on the vaccine began in 2001 and the research team – Edecio Cunha Neto, Jorge Kalil and Simone Fonseca – plan to test it on a colony of rhesus monkeys provided by São Paulo state’s Butantan biomedical research institute.The monkeys were chosen for the test because their immune system is similar to that of humans and they are susceptible to SIV (Simian immunology Virus), which is believed to have led to HIV when it crossed the species barrier.

Pope canonizes 2 saints from 19thcentury Palestine

first_imgChurch officials are holding up Bawardy and Ghattas as a sign of hope and encouragement for Christians across the Mideast at a time when violent persecution and discrimination have driven many Christians from the region of Christ’s birth.They were canonized alongside two other nuns, Saints Jeanne Emilie de Villeneuve from France and Maria Cristina of the Immaculate Conception from Italy.“Inspired by their example of mercy, charity and reconciliation, may the Christians of these lands look with hope to the future, following the path of solidarity and fraternal coexistence,” Francis said of the women at the end of the Mass.Bawardy was a mystic born in 1843 in the village of Ibilin in what is now the Galilee region of northern Israel. She is said to have received the “stigmata” — bleeding wounds like those that Jesus Christ suffered on the cross — and died at the age of 33 in the West Bank town of Bethlehem, where she founded a Carmelite order monastery that still exists.Ghattas, born in Jerusalem in 1847, opened girls’ schools, fought female illiteracy, and co-founded the Congregation of the Sisters of the Rosary. The order today boasts dozens of centers all over the Middle East, from Egypt to Syria, that operate kindergartens, homes for the elderly, medical clinics and guest houses. Francis has raised the plight of Christians across the Middle East as a cause for concern, denouncing how the Islamic State group has violently driven thousands of religious minorities from their homes in Syria and Iraq.___Follow Nicole Winfield at www.twitter.com/nwinfieldCopyright © The Associated Press.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and an estimated 2,000 pilgrims from the region, some waving Palestinian flags, were on hand for the canonization of the first saints from the Holy Land since the early years of Christianity. In his homily, Francis praised Bawardy as having been “a means of encounter and fellowship with the Muslim world,” while Ghattas “shows us the importance of becoming responsible for one another, of living lives of service to one another.”“Their luminous example challenges us in our lives as Christians,” he said.The canonization was celebrated in the Holy Land as well as by Palestinians in Rome. Bassam Abbas, a Palestinian-born doctor who has lived in Italy for 35 years, traveled from Civitavecchia, northwest of Rome, for the event with his wife and three children. They are Muslim, but their children go to a Catholic school.“We are proud of this event,” Abbas said outside St. Peter’s Square as he waved a giant Palestinian flag. “We want peace for Palestine, peace which transcends religion.”In addition to the Palestinian delegation on hand for the Mass, Israel sent a delegation headed by its ambassador to the Holy See, while France, Italy and Jordan also sent official delegations.In the birthplace of Christianity, Christians make up less than 2 percent of the population of Israel and the Palestinian territories. Although they have not experienced the violent persecution that has decimated Christian communities elsewhere in the region, the population has gradually shrunk over the decades as Christians have fled conflict or sought better opportunities abroad.

out at a great price versus trucking them"A train carrying 36 blades for wind turbines will leave the facility once a week That means 36 fewer semis meant to haul blades will be free to haul something else once a week cutting down expenses shipment time and truck trafficDozens of blades are waiting at the railyard to be shipped to Kansas and California as staff work to load the white giants onto railcarsThe construction of the rail facility is just one indicator of the wind industry’s growth The sector in the US had its second-strongest quarter and the American Wind Energy Association announced Thursday that near-record growth made wind energy the largest source of renewable electric capacity in the US ahead of hydropowerOut of the roughly 3000 megawatts in wind farms that went online in the past decade 1000 megawatts were completed in the last 10 months"That’s the way it is just surging on us" North Dakota Public Service Commissioner Randy Christmann saidWind boomThe construction of wind farms in North Dakota began in the late 1990s and only recently have started to surge in the past several years Christmann said The potential for capturing wind for energy in North Dakota is high particularly in the western and south-central part of the state according to the US Energy Information Administration which ranked North Dakota in 2014 sixth for wind energy potential and 11th in utility-scale generation"We see incredibly strong activity across the country" AWEA senior analyst Hannah Hunt said "We do expect to see this success story continue"Hunt said 89 percent of the wind farms installed last year occurred in the Midwest AWEA estimated wind power could double its output over the next five years supplying 10 percent of US electricity by 2020 and 20 percent by 2030 Texas is the leader in producing wind energy—last year it became the first state to surpass a capacity of 20000 megawatts Of the 41 states that have wind farms North Dakota ranked fourth in terms of installation of wind energyHunt said building farms and producing wind energy has become more affordable in recent years Wind towers are larger and produce more power than early models As technology advances more companies have looked to get into the sector whether as manufacturers or customers Hunt said That means more jobs"We know now that—this is a statistic reported through the US Department of Labor—the wind turbine technician position is the fastest-growing job in the United States" Hunt said adding there has been a two-thirds reduction in cost in building turbines in the past seven yearsSubsidiesWhile wind energy has become more economical than previous years there is no doubt that subsidies from the federal government have helped it alongCompanies have used tax credits to subsidize wind projects across the country including in North Dakota After being renewed several times the 2015 Congress agreed to phase out the Renewable Electricity Production Tax Credit on an 80-60-40 percent schedule with the credit ending in 2019Christmann cited tax credits that have been extended to wind companies over the years as a catalyst for the wind energy’s growth with many trying to qualify for subsidiesHunt called the tax credits a success policy that helped the wind industry grow and produce as much energy as possible"The phaseout is a done deal" she saidCompetition and oppositionNot everyone in North Dakota has been receptive to the wind energy sector Landowners in Stark County protested an 87-turbine wind farm last year that ultimately was approved by the Public Service Commission Before that the PSC maybe heard from one or two opponents The Stark County project proposed by NextEra Energy Resources presented 15 hours of testimony the longest PSC hearing on a wind project"It’s getting more noticeable" Christmann said of opposition to wind farms in North DakotaAs wind farms first came to North Dakota they were seen as novelties But as more were built residents in certain areas became vocal citing concerns of increased traffic during construction as well as wind blade and shadow noiseThere also has been concern from the coal industry about wind saturating the market North Dakota’s coal industry one of the state’s top sectors has the capability to produce 4000 megawattsCapacity is how much energy can be produced though most producers’ actual output is less Wind farms average about 25 percent of their capacityThe ability to capture wind may be one of the reasons North Dakota has seen growth in the industry Some wind farms have the ability to capture 40 percent or 1200 megawatts per hour of capacityUS Rep Kevin Cramer said he doesn’t foresee the tax credit’s phaseout being dragged on or shortened The former North Dakota public service commissioner and President Donald Trump’s energy adviser said he never imagined the wind sector would get as large as it did He called wind farms a "serious threat" to the coal industry which has seen rollbacks in production and the shuttering of plants—North Dakota’s Stanton Station in central North Dakota announced it would shut down by May"That seems like a saturated market" Christmann said "If we continue to build wind as it is being built you will see less energy from coal"It’s hard to say how much the wind industry will expand but subsidies will help the sector "explode" if the federal government wishes to offer tax credits Christmann said"It doesn’t matter whether these are needed" he said "There is money to be made just for building them"’Big deal’ for Grand ForksA world leader in producing turbine blades LM is one of the largest manufacturers in North Dakota with more than 1000 employees said Keith Lund vice president of the Grand Forks Region Economic Development Corp In the past four months alone the company added 200 positions"In many cases rail transportation is the most effective mode" Lund said adding the rail facility makes the company competitive across the country "This facility provides the necessary options for customers of LM Wind Power"LM Human Resources Manager Tricia Weber told the Herald most of the employees hired in recent months would work on bladesThe addition of jobs is in sharp contrast to the company’s decision to lay off hundreds of workers in the early 2010s leaving the Grand Forks plant with 270 employeesLM added more employees in recent years and announced in October that General Electric would purchase the blade manufacturer for $165 billion The sale likely will be finalized later this yearLund said North Dakota’s potential for wind development could create jobs not just in the wind industry but for construction maintenance and manufacturing workersThe rail facility can be used to ship other products Business leaders in Grand Forks have been talking about the facility and what it could do for the citySpicer said he was happy to hear people thought the rail facility was a "big deal""I think there are just opportunities all over the place" Spicer said "We definitely have the opportunity to put growth in Grand Forks"Herald reporter Sam Easter contributed to this reportThis election season’s debates have been big winners for the cable networks that have played host to them and on Saturday CBS hopes to repeat the phenomenon But while an onslaught of debates may seem like par for the primary course these days that wasn’t always the case Widely broadcast presidential primary debates date back to 1948 when Republican candidates Harold Stassen and Tom Dewey participated in a debate in Oregon that was aired on the radio Both parties held broadcast primary debates years before the famous 1960 televised debate between Nixon and Kennedy (Primary debates and general-election debates are two different beasts in many ways; notably the primary debates are organized by the parties while the later debates are organized by a bipartisan commission) But even as televised debates were proven to be able to create news they remained fairly few and far-between Their news-creating ability it turned out was a problem Due to the Federal Communications Commission rule that stations had to make equal time available for all candidates many opted to allot no time to any of them Under the original wording of the law anyone who was a “legally qualified candidate” could technically claim their time if a debate took place between major candidates and excluded others As TIME noted the rule had been meant to encourage debate by avoiding networks favoring one candidate but in practice it wiped politics off television (The rule does apply to officially declared candidates in the primary; last month Lawrence Lessig asked NBC affiliates for equal time after Hillary Clinton appeared on Saturday Night Live) Even after a 1959 amendment made exemptions for “bona fide news” the law had to be suspended temporarily to allow Nixon and Kennedy to debate in 1960 without opening the gates to third-party candidates Starting in the 1970s outside groups could organize debates which could then be covered by the networks as news events (The League of Women Voters was the dominant player in that arena for many years) In 1983 the law changed again As TIME explained the Federal Communications Commission decided that stations could stage their own debates without regard to equal time regulations by classifying debates sponsored by stations as news events too It was a controversial decision: Executives of the three commercial networks happily predict a marked increase in the number of televised debates NBC ABC and CBS have already dispatched telegrams to the Democratic and Republican National Committees inviting candidates to participate in on-air debates some time next year Broadcasters maintain that they will be able to bring greater flair to staging the encounters than the league was able to do Says CBS Senior Vice President Gene Mater: "We can do a better job Communications is our business" Others are not so sure Dorothy S Ridings president of the League of Women Voters believes that the decision allows broadcasters "to make as well as cover news" giving them far too much power in the process Andrew Schwartzman head of the Media Access Project in Washington contends that since local broadcasters are likely to have "family business partners and friends involved in local politics" their judgment in choosing candidates for station-sponsored debates might be suspect Whether the decision maximizes coverage of the candidates or simply minimizes the restraints on broadcasters to cover the candidates as they see fit remains to be seen It will be up to the viewer and the voter to decide Read more about the 1983 rule change here

a lot of the entrepreneurs I’ve met and mentored in the past decade have been successful I’ve probably met as many if not more unsuccessful entrepreneurs Each of them seemed to make a lot of the same mistakes — ones that could be easily remedied but when left unaddressed could mean the difference between success and failure Here are five signs you’re getting in your own way to success and how to move over and let yourself be the best you can be: 1 You’re unable to complete a task before starting a new one Some entrepreneurs just cannot finish For whatever reason it doesn’t matter how much time they have or how many resources are available to them — they can’t focus and get something done Maybe it’s the fear that their final product could be better or they’re worried it isn’t perfect and they won’t be able to make changes later But Seth Godin got it right in his book Linchpin: Are You Indispensable when he wrote: “The only purpose of starting is to finish and while the projects we do are never really finished they must ship” If you miss deadlines and are always late in the end you’ll have little to show for yourself I always say if it’s 80 percent there it’s good enough Because: you must ship 2 You micro-manage everything Unsuccessful entrepreneurs want to do everything themselves They don’t believe anyone else can get a job done as well as they can But even if they were actually right about this which is doubtful since no one is good at everything — it’s an unsustainable business philosophy If you want to grow your business and become a leader you’re going to have to learn to trust others Everyone needs a support team even the most competent people 5 Horrible Habits You Need to Stop Right Now Do Not Email First Thing in the Morning or Last Thing at Night “The former scrambles your priorities and all your plans for the day and the latter just gives you insomnia” says Ferriss who insists “email can wait until 10am” or after you check off at least one substantive to-do list item Chris PecoraroGetty Images Do Not Agree to Meetings or Calls With No Clear Agenda or End Time “If the desired outcome is defined clearly… and there’s an agenda listing

Images/Flickr RF Do Not Let People Ramble Sounds harsh but it’s necessary Ferriss believes “Small talk takes up big time” he says so when people start to tell you about their weekends cut them off politely with something like “I’m in the middle of something but what’s up” But be aware not everyone agrees with this one (and certainly not in every situation) and you may want to pay particularly close attention to norms around chit chat when traveling internationally Reza EstakhrianGetty Images 1 of 5 Advertisement 3 You’re always right I’ve noticed that it’s difficult for some entrepreneurs to admit when they’ve made a mistake But if you fail to acknowledge a mistake you miss out on a learning opportunity Mistakes are stepping stones to success Ask for advice and admit when you’re wrong so you can quickly move forward and do better 4 You ask questions but don’t really pay attention to the answers You know the type of person I’m talking about They ask for your opinion but they’re only really interested in what you have to say if it’s exactly what they already believe That baffles me These kinds of entrepreneurs surround themselves with people who will only ever agree with them That’s bad for business You’ll make better decisions if you abandon your stubbornness truly weigh different points of view and try to understand other perspectives 5 You always find reasons not to move forward The timing isn’t right The economy isn’t doing well You don’t have enough capital Whatever the excuse you always have one But guess what There will always be reasons to not move forward You just have to decide to press on Create options for yourself be flexible and have courage That’s really what it is: having the courage to take on risk As entrepreneurs we all make mistakes That’s part of the fun of being willing to take risks But over the years I’ve learned that the more humble and receptive you are the more likely you’ll succeed This article originally appeared on
