Things Have Been Going Quite Well for Me

I do not want to jinx myself by saying it, but things have really been going quite well for me. I was helping out this guy I know, he does HVAC repair in Queens, Brooklyn and the Bronx. When he needs someone to do the physical stuff he will call me up and if it fits with my schedule I help him since he will pay me in cash. I do not need the money really, but of course it is not like I could not find something to do with it. Of course I have finally found the sort of job that I was trained for and I am making a good deal of money without ever leaving home and it does not really occupy me much. After awhile I got to thinking about how much of my time at the office was just wasted by people wandering around and distracting me from writing code and finding bugs.

At any rate when I was helping Kevin this girl he was working for got really upset with her laptop. He told her that I could fix anything, which is not strictly true. However the problem that she had was not anything. When she asked me if she could repay me I said that I would take a slice of pizza down on the corner. She asked me if I was asking her out and I realized that I probably had. Either way that was how it started and now I have a free place to stay and a really nice girlfriend. I did not know it then, but she has quite a bit of money. Her family owns a number of things, real estate for the most part, but also some shops and such that were mostly scattered around …

FRANKLIN, Tenn., May 16, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc.

Business and Bollywood vote in India’s election

A parade of India’s business and entertainment elite –- many of them supporters of Prime Minister Narendra Modi — went to the polls Monday as the financial capital Mumbai voted in the latest round of the country’s election.

But turnout in the fifth round of the mammoth democratic exercise fell to its lowest so far, election commission figures showed, as parts of the country sweltered under a heatwave that saw temperatures soar to 44 degrees Celsius (111 degrees Fahrenheit). 

Modi, 73, is widely expected to win a third term when the election concludes early next month, thanks in large part to his aggressive championing of India’s majority Hindu faith.

“My vote is for the BJP and Modi,” said Deepak Mahajan, 42, who works in banking. “There is no other choice if you care about the future of the economy and business.”

Big conglomerates have provided Modi’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) a campaign war chest that dwarfs its rivals, while Bollywood stars have backed its ideological commitment to more closely align the country’s majority religion and its politics.

The BJP received $730 million in five years from leading companies and wealthy businesspeople through electoral bonds, a contentious political donation tool since ruled illegal by India’s top court, making it by far the biggest single beneficiary.

Conglomerate owners support Modi’s government because it caters to the needs of India’s “existing oligarchic business elite”, Deepanshu Mohan of OP Jindal Global University told AFP. 

Lower corporate taxes, less red tape and cutting “municipal regulatory corruption” have also helped Modi win corporate titans’ affection, he said.

N. Chandrasekaran, the chairman of Tata Sons, a sprawling Indian conglomerate with interests ranging from cars and software to salt and tea, cast his ballot at a polling station in an upper-class Mumbai neighbourhood.

Canada’s next EV supply chain plant landing in Port Colborne, Ont.

The next community set for a massive boost to its local economy as part of Honda Canada’s $15-billion investment to establish a Canadian electric vehicle supply chain will be Port Colborne, Ont.

Company executives are expected to join Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Ontario Premier Doug Ford, as well as federal Innovation Minister François-Philippe Champagne and Ontario’s economic development minister, Vic Fedeli, and municipal leaders at an official announcement on Tuesday.

On April 25, Honda announced a major expansion of its original Canadian facility in Alliston, Ont., to both manufacture batteries and assemble electric vehicle versions of its top-selling brands. On the same day, Japan’s Asahi Kasei Corporation announced a new partnership with Honda to build Canada’s first-ever lithium ion battery separator plant in Ontario — but the municipality that was the successful bidder for this facility was not revealed.

iPolitics was the first to report that Honda would announce a facility in Ontario’s Niagara Region. Over the weekend, word spread on social media that Port Colborne was chosen. A senior government source confirmed the location to CBC News on Monday.

Asahi Kasei’s announcement last month said Honda’s partner is investing nearly $1.6 billion in this separator facility.

The federal and provincial governments each contributed $2.5 billion in tax credits and other government incentives to attract Honda’s business to Ontario amid fierce global competition for new electric vehicle manufacturing investments.

ACV Partners, an online commerce growth agency takes a stance against proposed TikTok Bill

DALLAS, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, May 17, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — ACV Partners, a leading e-commerce growth firm, announced today its opposition to the proposed ban on TikTok, the popular short-form video platform.

As a company that helps clients build thriving online businesses on emerging platforms like TikTok Shop, ACV Partners believes that banning the app would stifle innovation and limit opportunities for entrepreneurs.

“We strongly oppose any move to ban TikTok,” said ACV Partners said Chief Compliance Officer Jonathan H. Sr. “Our clients have seen tremendous success on the platform, and we believe that it represents the future of social commerce.

Shutting down TikTok would hurt our clients and the countless small businesses and creators who rely on the app for their livelihoods.”

TikTok has been scrutinized recently due to concerns over data privacy and security. However, ACV Partners argues that these issues can be addressed through regulation and collaboration, rather than an outright ban.

As the team at ACV partners reviews arguments for the TikTok ban, they continue to find no reason to support it, as they believe it would hurt millions of American businesses.

“We understand the concerns around data privacy, but we believe that there are ways to mitigate those risks without resorting to a ban,” said Jonathan H. Sr. “We urge policymakers to work with TikTok and other stakeholders to find a solution that protects user data while also preserving the platform’s innovative features and economic benefits.”

ACV Partners has helped numerous clients launch successful businesses on TikTok Shop, which allows creators to sell products directly to their followers through the app. The company’s team of experts handles all aspects of the business, from

Canadian B-girl finds balance between business life and sport of breaking

Canadian B-girl Tiffany Leung is among the 80 breaking athletes who will compete in the Olympic Qualifier Series in Shanghai.

Changing her hoodie for formal business attire, Leung immediately transforms into a professional and confident employee of Deloitte, one of the world’s biggest accounting firms.

“Breaking by night and breaking ground with clients by day” is Leung’s life motto. The 28-year-old is seeking the opportunity to qualify for and compete in the Paris Olympic Games in August.

Canadian B-girl Tiffany Leung works hard to find a balance between her sport and her professional employment.

Having spent her childhood in Hong Kong before moving to Canada, Leung joined Deloitte Canada in 2017 as a consultant for AI strategy projects. She helps clients identify how to apply AI to their business to improve operations.

Her interest in breaking started a decade ago in university when she was 18.

“Breaking represents a large part of who I am,” Leung told Shanghai Daily. “I feel the freedom and connection to my mind, body, and soul when I break.”

Leung admitted that after becoming an consultant in a top accounting firm, the balance between work and breaking was not easy to achieve.

“I previously found managing my two careers quite tricky,” she said. “When focusing on work, it was challenging to dedicate sufficient time to my training. But both breaking and work are very important to me, and I wanted to find the balance between the two.”

Leung was thankful that when her colleagues and company leaders learned that she was aiming to participate in the Olympics, they showed her support.

Anglo American mulls sale of De Beers diamond business

Anglo American has announced its intention to either sell or spin off its diamond business, De Beers, as part of a strategic restructuring aimed at simplifying its portfolio.

This move comes on the heels of the company’s decision to dismiss a takeover bid from BHP Group.

The announcement comes a day after Anglo American rejected BHP’s £34bn ($42.7bn) revised buyout proposal, stating that the offer significantly undervalues the company and its future prospects and poses execution risks.

As part of the restructuring, Anglo American is also exploring options for the divestment of its steelmaking coal and nickel assets, while Anglo American Platinum will be demerged in a responsible and orderly manner to optimise value for shareholders of both entities.

Upon completion of the asset review, which commenced in 2023, Anglo American plans to implement various major structural changes to focus on operational excellence, portfolio simplification and growth.

Anglo American said the restructuring will help it focus on key areas such as copper, premium iron ore and crop nutrients.

London insurance market rebounds with record-breaking staff numbers

“Brokers tell us they are seeing more business coming to London”

London insurance market rebounds with record-breaking staff numbers

Business Resilience

By
Terry Gangcuangco

The London insurance market, staffing-wise, has seen a significant rebound from its pandemic lows, achieving the sector’s highest employment numbers in a decade.

Citing data from the London Market Group (LMG), the Financial Times reported that the workforce at commercial insurance and reinsurance firms in London reached 59,000 in 2023.

The abovementioned total marks a substantial increase from the 41,000 recorded in 2021 (when we were still in the thick of the COVID-19 pandemic) and is the highest level since 2013.

LMG chief executive Caroline Wagstaff (pictured) emphasized London’s status as a hub for complex policy negotiations. “The brokers tell us they are seeing more business coming to London,” the publication quoted her as saying. “They are busier. It’s where people bring the difficult stuff.”

According to LMG estimates, the London market achieved approximately US$180 billion in gross written premium last year, a figure that has doubled over the past decade due to heightened concerns about climate change and other risks driving demand for coverage.

In 2022, London increased its share of the commercial insurance and reinsurance market to 8.3%, the highest in no less than 12 years, despite Brexit and pandemic-related disruptions.

Meanwhile Wagstaff reiterated the call for reforms to foster innovation in London, stating: “People have choices [about where to buy insurance], and everyone needs to be alive to that, and think about how we can make [London] a positive choice.”

Montreal investing $2M for Village as residents, business owners continue to face safety concerns

Montreal’s Village is the heart of the 2SLGBTQ+ community in the city, but it’s also been facing safety concerns due to homelessness, drug use, and mental health issues in the area.

Residents and business owners are calling for more to be done and launched a petition demanding change, as Mayor Valérie Plante Thursday announced an investment of $2 million to support social and economic initiatives in the Village. 

“We want the mayor to find solutions right now, not in three years or five years to make us feel more safe,” said Younes El-Moustir, a Village resident and local real estate agent.

“Before putting money on the beautification of the streets, we need to put a lot of money on the real problem.”

El-Moustir started a petition because he says problems are often on his business’ doorstep. 

“Sometimes some people here just go in, just start screaming at my assistant. They feel scared, sometimes when we come here in the morning, we get some people smoking drugs. And this is a problem for us,” explained El-Moustir.

The mayor says she doesn’t want the streets to become a hospital or injection site, and that more police officers as well as intervention workers have been on the ground.

“We will not give up and we will continue. My messages to say it will probably take a while before we see all the results and this is why as well as we go on security working with SPVM, reinforcing SPVM presence, we also want to make sure that people feel welcome and safe,” said Valérie Plante.

U.S. raises tariffs significantly on EVs, other goods from China

The U.S. plans to slap new tariffs on Chinese electric vehicles, advanced batteries, solar cells, steel, aluminum and medical equipment — an election-year move that’s likely to increase friction between the world’s two largest economies.

The tariffs are unlikely to have much of an inflationary impact because of how they’re structured. Administration officials said they think the tariffs won’t escalate tensions with China, yet they expect that China will explore ways to respond to the new taxes on their products. But the tariffs could contribute to a wider trade dispute, potentially leading to higher prices for consumers.

The tariffs are to be phased in over the next three years, with those that take effect in 2024 covering EVs, solar cells, syringes, needles, steel and aluminum and more. There are currently very few EVs from China in the U.S., but American officials worry that low-priced models made possible by Chinese government subsidies could soon start flooding the U.S. market.

Under the findings of a four-year review on trade with China, the tax rate on imported Chinese EVs is to rise to 102.5 per cent this year, up from total levels of 27.5 per cent. The review was undertaken under Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974, which allows the government to retaliate against trade practices deemed in violation of global standards.

The Biden administration views China, with subsidies of its own manufacturing, as trying to globally control the EV and clean energy sectors, whereas it says its own industrial support is geared toward ensuring domestic supplies to help meet U.S. demand.

“We do not seek to have global domination of manufacturing in these sectors, but we believe because these are strategic industries and for the sake of resilience of our supply chains, that we want to make sure that we
