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 …

Well, when I attempt to dial out international, using the expected format for the specific country, the dialing did not perform.

Why American business should be military ready

Drawing from my own experience transitioning out of the Army, and from being a military spouse, I am aware of the complex challenges that members of the military-connected community face seeking employment.

Overcoming the challenge of translating military skills into civilian terms and adapting to a new work culture are formidable hurdles. Through novel programs like DOD SkillBridge, which connects transitioning service members with industry partners, and working with organizations like Hiring our Heroes, or Hire Heroes USA, America has made significant strides when it comes to veteran unemployment. This should be celebrated.

But this solution has revealed another challenge: finding meaningful employment that truly reflects veterans’ skills and abilities and paves the way for long-lasting careers.

American businesses have a tremendous opportunity to not only address the issue of underemployment among our nation’s heroes, but also benefit from their invaluable skills and experiences. By being military ready, businesses can tap into this exceptional talent pool and foster long-lasting careers.

The cost of attrition and underemployment

Research shows that underemployment disproportionately affects veterans. They are 70% more likely to step back in seniority in their first civilian jobs when compared to the roles they held in the military and are nearly 16% more likely to be underemployed than their civilian counterparts; 42% of veteran talent leave their first civilian job in one year; and 80% leave in two years, which is 10% higher than their civilian counterparts.

The cost of replacing an employee can range from one-half to two times the employee’s salary. However, research also found that 70% of the reasons for employee turnover are preventable.

Finally, a recent survey of more than 5,000 veterans and service members by Indeed and Hiring Our Heroes found that “even organizations that consider themselves ‘military-ready’ may still have work to do,”

Business of the Month: Modular builder continues evolution with investment division

Real estate investment is newest endeavour for Sudbury’s Morris Group of Companies

When David Morris considered partnering on the $31-million purchase of the Victoria Inn Hotel & Convention Centre earlier this year, it was a little outside his wheelhouse.

Over the last two decades, Morris has made his name designing, constructing and selling modular buildings — offices, mine drys, washrooms, housing — not operating legacy accommodations like the Victoria Inn.

Built in 1974, the Thunder Bay establishment has long been a gathering place for Indigenous conferences and conventions, and serves as a premier facility for weddings, business meetings and tourism stays. A block of rooms is also set aside for Indigenous clients arriving in the city for medical appointments.

Michipicoten First Nation and Naicatchewenin First Nations saw the acquisition as an investment opportunity for the two communities and, together, put up all the capital for the purchase.

Impressed by their progressive approach, Morris signed on to the transaction, which he called “the first deal of its kind.” Morris Group of Companies became a general partner and the managing partner of the property.

“It’s really, to me, forward-thinking of First Nations business where the communities can work in not just, say, their territory or with a particular project, but look to expand their horizons and investments into other areas,” Morris said.

In making this assessment about his new partners, Morris could easily be speaking about himself.

Originally trained in dentistry, Morris ventured into entrepreneurship in the mid-2000s and has continued to build a diverse portfolio of businesses under the Morris Group.

He launched his first venture, Morris Modular, with a partner in 2005, to rent modular trailers to companies needing extra space for offices, washrooms, or other

Google and Canada reach deal to avert news ban over Online News Act

Reuters A Google signReuters

Google has reached a deal with Canada to avert a news blockade over a law that forces tech giants to pay for news content.

Google had vowed to remove links to news in Canada in response to the Online News Act, due to take effect on 19 December.

Social media giant Meta is already blocking news on its platforms as a result of the law.

The deal comes after months of talks between the search giant and Canada.

The law – which is aimed at Google and Meta, owner of Facebook and Instagram – requires tech firms to negotiate payment agreements with news outlets.

The agreement announced on Wednesday requires Google pay C$100m (£58m, $74m) annually, indexed to inflation, to news outlets.

An announcement by Canadian Heritage Minister Pascale St-Onge on Wednesday said the funding would be used “for a wide range of news businesses across the country, including independent news businesses and those from Indigenous and official-language minority communities”.

The statement said that Google would pay a “single collective” which would distribute the funds to eligible news agencies “based on the number of full-time equivalent journalists engaged by those businesses”.

“A sustainable news ecosystem is good for everyone,” Ms St-Onge said, adding that newsrooms closing and laying off workers means that “the health of the Canadian news industry has never been more at risk”.

Google released a statement saying it is “pleased that the Government of Canada has committed to addressing our core issues” with the bill.

“While we work with the government through the exemption process based on the regulations that will be published shortly, we will continue sending valuable traffic to Canadian publishers,” the company’s statement continued.

Canada’s Online News Act was met with outrage from the tech companies when it was passed this summer, while

Will Tesla’s cybertruck recover from its shattering start?

By Natalie ShermanBusiness reporter, New York

Watch: Musk attempts Cybertruck window stunt again

The last time Tesla boss Elon Musk took the stage to promote the electric car company’s planned “cybertruck”, its window ended up being smashed.

It was a shattering debut for the vehicle, meant to stake Tesla’s claim to the lucrative US truck market.

Four years later, as the company starts delivering the futuristic product to buyers, that problem has been fixed.

But questions linger over whether the truck’s unusual design will help or hurt its chances of success.

Mr Musk has said the truck – which is angular and made of rocket-like, bullet-proof steel materials – might be the company’s “best product ever”.

But speaking to Wall Street analysts last month he also said he wanted to “temper expectations”, warning there would be “enormous challenges” before the company was producing the vehicle in big numbers and turning a profit.

“It is going to require immense work,” he said. “It’s not a demand issue, but we have to make it, and we need to make it at a price that people can afford – insanely difficult things.”

The “bells and whistles” of the truck, which starts at a higher-than-promised list price of roughly $61,000 (£48,320), have complicated manufacturing and added to cost, he added later.

“We dug our own grave with the cybertruck,” Mr Musk said.

Trucks are among the most popular vehicles sold in the US – with traditional sedans so out of favour that some carmakers have stopped making them for the country.

But Tesla’s offer is entering the market at a difficult moment – some two years behind schedule – as the highest interest rates in decades dampen buyers’ ability to make new purchases.

In recent months, rivals such as General Motors and Ford

US-China Relations in the Biden-Era: A Timeline

This article on US-China relations was originally posted on March 22, 2021, and last updated on December 4, 2023.

On January 20, 2021, Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th president of the United States, offering a chance to change the course of US-China relations, which had hit a low point under the outgoing Trump administration.

The four years witnessed escalating trade tensions culminating in a trade war and sanctions on Chinese technology companies.

Since Biden’s election, political and business stakeholders have been paying close attention to the direction of the new White House administration’s policy toward China.

Will the Biden administration be accommodating of China or take advantage of the new status quo established under his predecessor?

Charlie Munger death: Warren Buffett’s business partner in Berkshire Hathaway passes away, aged 99

New York

Billionaire investor Charlie Munger, the long-time friend and business partner of Warren Buffett, has died. He was 99 years old.

Berkshire Hathaway, the investment firm where Munger served as vice chairman, said in a press release that Munger passed “peacefully” on Tuesday morning in a California hospital. No cause of death was given.

Charles Thomas Munger, known by his nickname, “Charlie,” was born on January 1, 1924, in Omaha, Nebraska. Munger served in the US Army during World War II after leaving the University of Michigan in 1943 at the age of 19. Following the war, Munger attended Harvard Law School and graduated with honors in 1948 and moved to Southern California, where he practiced real estate law.

Wall Street mourned Munger’s passing and his astonishing run at Berkshire Hathaway.

“Berkshire Hathaway could not have been built to its present status without Charlie’s inspiration, wisdom and participation,” CEO Warren Buffett said in the release.

“For so many decades, the two of them led an investment powerhouse that significantly improved so many people’s lives … and, in the process, they repeatedly showcased the prowess of collaboration, synergies, and common sense. May you RIP, Charlie,” said Mohamed El-Erian, Allianz chief economic adviser, in a post on X.

“His impact went far beyond the investing world. People discovered him, thinking that they would learn about ways to make money, but they got so much more,” Whitney Tilson, an investor and expert on both Buffett and Munger, told CNN. “He said if all you have is a hammer, the world looks like a nail.”

Munger, who was worth $2.7 billion, according to Forbes, was still commenting on global markets as recently as a few weeks ago. He told the Acquired podcast, for example, that Buffett’s decision to invest billions

Quebec investment company says battery industry will get another $15 billion in projects

The size of the investments promised in the battery industry could double again in the next few years to reach $30 billion, according to the head of Investissement Québec.

The projects announced in the battery sector represent total investments of nearly $11 billion. To this can be added nearly $4 billion in investments to be announced “shortly.”

“Another $15 billion is being discussed and will be announced over the next few years,” says Guy LeBlanc, President and CEO of Investissement Québec, in an interview prior to a speech he is due to give to the business community in Bécancour on Tuesday. “Essentially, these are phase two and phase three projects to increase the capacity of the plants already announced.”

LeBlanc considers that “the essential part” of Quebec’s battery ecosystem is now complete.

However, the government is planning to add “small missing pieces that we are working on.”

As an example, he spoke about the production of synthetic graphite, which would be added to the graphite production of Nouveau Monde Graphite.

With Quebec’s limited energy capacity, LeBlanc said the government will no longer be courting large cell manufacturers.

“Given the energy limitations at the moment, going out to find another cell manufacturer, for example, would be problematic,” he said.

The battery industry can do without the project by German giant BASF, which was announced in the spring of 2022 and was due to be completed in Bécancour in 2025, said LeBlanc. The project is in limbo while the company looks for partners in the automotive sector.

Even if it doesn’t materialize, BASF’s announcement has done useful work by putting the spotlight on Quebec, argued LeBlanc.

“It was really well received by the international community and by certain players who weren’t

The renewables business faces a make-or-break moment

A FEW YEARS ago renewables were having their moment in the sun (and wind). Rock-bottom interest rates lowered the cost of clean power, which is expensive to deploy but runs on sun and wind that come free of charge. The price of solar panels and wind turbines fell as technologies matured and manufacturers gained scale. These developments brought the levelised cost of electricity (LCoE)—which accounts for capital and operating expenditures per unit of energy—for solar, onshore wind and offshore wind down by 87%, 64% and 55%, respectively, between 2010 and 2020 (see chart 1). Clean energy became competitive with dirty alternatives, and was snapped up by big corporate power-users directly from developers.

Infrastructure investors such as Brookfield and Macquarie made big renewables bets. So did some fossil-fuel firms, such as BP. Utilities such as EDP and Iberdrola in Europe and AES and NextEra in America poured money into projects. Average returns on capital put to work by developers rose from 3% in 2015 to 6% in 2019, a similar level to oil-and-gas extraction but with less volatility. The industry’s prospects looked so bright that in October 2020 the market value of NextEra briefly eclipsed that of ExxonMobil, America’s mightiest oil giant, making it America’s most valuable energy company.

Today these prospects look considerably dimmer. Over the past two years the economics of renewables have been hit by rising interest rates, supply-chain snags, permitting delays and, increasingly, the protectionist instincts of Western governments. The “green premium” in stocks has turned into a “green discount”. The S&P Global Clean Energy Index, which tracks the performance of the industry, has declined by 32% over the past 12 months, even as the world’s stockmarkets are up by 11% (see chart 2).

India Government Official Involved in US, Canada Assassination Plots: DOJ

  • An Indian government official was involved in an attempted assassination on US soil, the Justice Department says.
  • The official also appeared to be involved in the earlier killing of a Sikh separatist in Canada, according to the indictment.
  • Any involvement from India in the assassination scheme threatens US-India relations.

A member of the Indian government directed a foiled plot to assassinate a US citizen on American soil, according to a newly unsealed federal indictment.

The indictment, brought by federal prosecutors in Manhattan Wednesday, identifies the Indian official only as “CC-1” and describes them as a “Senior Field Employee” within India’s government with responsibilities in “Intelligence.”

The allegations are included in an updated criminal indictment against Nikhil Gupta, an Indian national who, according to a previous indictment first filed in June, hired a hitman for the assassination plot.

The victim in the plot was meant to be Gurpatwant Singh Pannun, according to the Washington Post. Pannum, a lawyer and citizen in the US and Canada, is a leader of a Sikh separatist movement that calls for an independent Sikh state in Punjab.

In May, the Indian government employee recruited Gupta to orchestrate the plot to kill Pannum, according to the Justice Department indictment. The two met in person in New Delhi at the time, prosecutors say.

Gupta, in turn, contacted another person to broker a deal with a hitman to carry out the plot in New York City, according to prosecutors. The two found another person who agreed to accept $100,000 to kill Pannum, the indictment says.

The Indian government employee also said he had another “target” in California, according to the indictment.

“We will
