Man accused of killing Tina Fontaine told police it wasnt him

first_imgThe Canadian Press WINNIPEG – The man accused of killing an Indigenous teenager and dumping her body in the Red River told police he didn’t do it, and urged them to search for a suspect who looked like the lead singer of rock group Led Zeppelin.“Don’t focus on me,” Raymond Cormier told police during a 90-minute videotaped interview from Oct. 1, 2014, part of which was played in court Wednesday.“What happened to Tina was wrong.”Cormier has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder in the death of Tina Fontaine, a petite 15-year-old girl whose body was found in the Red River, wrapped in a duvet cover and weighed down by rocks, on Aug 17, 2014.She had spent most of her life on the Sagkeeng First Nation and travelled to Winnipeg in late June of 2014 to reconnect with her birth mother. Court was told she became a sexually exploited youth.Cormier, 55, said he met Tina several times that summer and sometimes provided her and her boyfriend a place to stay overnight.In the video interview, Cormier told police he last saw Tina sometime in August after her boyfriend had left the city to return to a northern First Nations community.Tina had come to a home where Cormier was staying with friends, he said, and got upset when Cormier took a bicycle she had and sold it for marijuana. The two argued outside, he said, and he followed Tina as she walked away down the street.“She’s just yelling and screaming and I’m yelling and screaming and … I got pissed off and threw her weed at her feet and – gone, see you later,” Cormier sajd in the video.“And then I went back to (the house).”Cormier told the two officers interviewing him that there was a man walking in the same direction as Tina on the other side of the street, a little bit behind her.Cormier told police they should seek the man out as a person of interest, and then gave a description – a white skin, middle-aged man with shoulder-length dirty blonde hair who looked like a famous singer.“Robert Plant,” Cormier said.“Led Zeppelin?,” one of the officers asks.“Yeah.”The man had not said anything, Cormier added.Cormier said he couldn’t recall the date, but felt it was on a weekend just before Tina’s body was found.Court has already been told Tina’s boyfriend flew to St. Theresa Point on Aug. 6 – a Wednesday two days before she was last seen by social workers.Earlier in the day, court heard from Sgt. Shauna Neufeld of the Winnipeg Police Service’s missing person’s unit. She said Child and Family Services got involved with Tina after her great aunt, who raised the girl in Sagkeeng, couldn’t find her and asked for help.Tina ran away from hotels and a youth shelter four times in the summer of 2014. The last time was on Aug. 8.Tina had fallen asleep that morning in a parkade and was taken to hospital. The doctor who treated her said Tina had told paramedics she had taken the prescription drug Gabapentin, along with marijuana and alcohol.A urine test found evidence of amphetamines, cannabis, cocaine and alcohol. The doctor was concerned Tina might have been sexually exploited and offered a gynecological exam which Tina refused, she said.Tina was released into the custody of social worker Kim Chute, who took her to a downtown hotel.On the way, Chute said, Tina described having an older male friend who was going to give her a bicycle.“She said she was hanging out with a 62-year-old man named Sebastian who was a meth user,” Chute testified.Tina’s boyfriend, Cody Mason, has testified Cormier went by the name Sebastian at the time.Chute dropped off Tina at the hotel under the care of a private company employee who monitored Child and Family Services kids housed there.But Tina immediately left for a nearby shopping centre, saying she wanted to meet up with friends.“Did she tell you who those friends were?,” Cormier’s lawyer asked Chute under cross-examination.“No, she didn’t,” Chute replied.The next day, Tina was reported missing. Eight days after that, Tina’s body was found.last_img read more

UN refugee chief honoured with prestigious rights award

António Guterres, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), has been awarded this year’s Calouste Gulbenkian International Prize for his efforts to promote human rights and inter-cultural dialogue.The Prize, created in 2007, is awarded to individuals or institutions whose thoughts or actions have decisively contributed to understanding, defending or fostering universal human values.The €100,000 prize, presented at a ceremony in Lisbon, Portugal, earlier this week, will be shared by Mr. Guterres and the co-winner, the Peace Research Institute in the Middle East (PRIME), which is a non-governmental organization (NGO) bringing Palestinian and Israeli researchers together to further mutual co-existence and peacebuilding.This year’s recipients of the award – created two years ago and named after Calouste Gulbenkian, the Armenian Turk who was a pioneer in the oil industry, an art collector, diplomat and philanthropist – were selected by a six-member panel of judges, led by former Portuguese President Jorge Sampaio.The High Commissioner dedicated half of the prize to humanitarian aid workers who have lost their lives during the course of helping others around the world.In the past six months, three UNHCR staff members have been killed in Pakistan, while Natalia Estemirova, murdered last week in Russia, worked with UNHCR through the NGO Memorial.The award comes as “a great encouragement at such a difficult time,” Mr. Guterres said.This is the second honour for UNHCR in two weeks, with the agency receiving the Francisco de Vitoria medal at a ceremony last week, bestowed by the municipality of Vitoria-Gasteiz, in northern Spain, and the University of the Basque Country for exceptional commitment to human rights and international understanding.UNHCR is the second winner of the annual award, with the first being the International Court of Justice, the principal judicial organ of the UN.The prize is named after the 16th century Spanish Roman Catholic philosopher, theologian and jurist, who is regarded as one of the founding fathers of international law. 22 July 2009António Guterres, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), has been awarded this year’s Calouste Gulbenkian International Prize for his efforts to promote human rights and inter-cultural dialogue. read more

Nothing heard on Rwanda black box so far links it to fatal

On Tuesday the Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS) – the UN’s internal watchdog – took the so-called black box to the United States National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) in Washington, D.C., where it was opened in the presence of experts from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), a UN agency.Spokesman Fred Eckhard said some conversation in French could be heard on the 30-minute tape but nothing so far links the CVR to the crash on 6 April 1994 of the plane carrying Rwandan President Juvenal Habyarimana and his Burundian counterpart Cyprian Ntayamira. Their deaths set off a chain of killings and massacres throughout Rwanda that year, with the death toll from the genocide mounting to more than 800,000 people, mostly minority Tutsis and “moderate” Hutu.”Additional expert attention, as is normally the case, will be required to determine the exact contents of the tape,” Mr. Eckhard said at a press briefing in New York. “This process will take some more time, the length of which cannot be determined now. Only when this additional review is completed can any definite conclusions be drawn.”Last Thursday Mr. Eckhard announced that after an internal inquiry – prompted by reporters’ questions – a black box had been located the previous day in a locked filing cabinet in the Air Safety Unit of the UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations. Following the discovery, Secretary-General Kofi Annan ordered the OIOS to look into exactly what happened 10 years ago and how the UN came into possession of the device. read more

Ohio State wrestling recap from Eastern Michigan

OSU freshman Myles Martin celebrates after winning the 2016 NCAA Wrestling Championships on March 19 at Madison Square Garden in New York. Credit: Courtesy of OSUOver the weekend, the Ohio State wrestling team traveled north to Eastern Michigan, where several competing Buckeyes claimed spots atop the podium.Saturday’s competition marked the official start of the season for OSU’s wrestlers, and the team hit the ground running fast, with six Buckeyes placing third or above in their weight classes. At 133 lbs., freshman Luke Pletcher made the most of his collegiate debut, winning four matches on the day, with a crucial 4-1 victory over Mario Guillen of Ohio University to advance to the final match. In the title match, Pletcher faced off against Buckeye teammate freshman Brendan Fitzgerald, a match in which Fitzgerald conceded in a medical forfeit, putting Pletcher atop the podium to win first place in the weight class.Fitzgerald’s day was strong, pinning two opponents, while powering through a close match versus Giuseppe Penzone of Tiffin University, winning 6-4. Fitzgerald finished his wrestling with a fall in just a minute over Stevan Micic of Michigan.In his first tournament at 149 lbs., redshirt sophomore Micah Jordan dominated Saturday, scoring an impressive 79 points throughout four matches. Jordan’s final match of the day was more of the same, defeating Justin Oliver of Central Michigan University 15-7, becoming the second Buckeye to claim a title.Wrestling at 197 lbs., redshirt freshman Kollin Moore gave OSU its third title, where Moore scored in the double digits in all four matches.  Storming to the final match to compete for the title, Moore defeated Riley Lefever of Wabash College 11-6, finding his way to the top of the podium.Two Buckeyes placed third at Eastern Michigan. Redshirt sophomore Cody Burcher, at 165 pounds, along with redshirt junior Jack Rozema, at 184 pounds, both bounced back from semifinal losses to claim third on the day in their respective weight classes.Meanwhile, at Cleveland State University, OSU sophomore Myles Martin wrestled in a feature match at the National Wrestling Coaches Association All-Star Classic Saturday night.  The 184 pound dual brought Martin against two-time defending national champion Gabe Dean of Cornell.  Martin’s first match at 184 pounds did not go his way, as he fell to Dean 13-4. OSU’s wrestling team travels next to Troy, New York, for the ASICS/Journeymen Classic on Sunday. read more

Publishers Ad Agencies Talk Magazines 30

first_imgGiven the tough economic climate, John Griffin, National Geographic group president and Magazine Publishers of America chairman, said publishers must position their magazines to grab post-recession advertising. “Those are unallocated dollars,” Griffin said. “When that money comes back, I want it to come to us rather than someone else.”The challenges, Griffin acknowledged, are to meet the demand for faster audience metrics while appeasing advertisers who are used to the speed of the Internet, overnight television ratings and the other media willing to bend and contort to integrate marketing messages into their product offerings. “Advertisers want to borrow—or steal—the credibility and authority we have with our readers,” Griffin said. “And we want to give it to them” without threatening the credibility and authority, he said. “[At National Geographic] we’re always asking ‘How far can we go with this?’ It’s a contestant internal struggle.”“It’s the single biggest point of contention within our company,” said Deidre Depke, Newsweek.com’s assistant managing editor. (Depke recently took a buyout from Newsweek and is leaving the company, one of many longtime editorial staffers to do so.) “The only editorial asset our magazine has is its content—for us to abandon that, and let advertisers do what they want with it, would be a big mistake.”‘Handcuffs’ But Steve Sturm, group VP of strategic research and planning at Toyota Motor North America, said magazines need to realize that their readers don’t care as much about editorial ethics and the concept of a church-state line as publishers—if at all. “[The line] has been self-governed and self-policed—you’ve put the handcuffs on yourselves,” Sturm said. “The federal government, the state government, they haven’t told you to do it. You put up all these roadblocks” that other media don’t have. And a younger generation of potential readers, he said, “don’t play by the same rules you play by.”Another challenge young readers present, Griffin said, is a substantial pressure on newsstand price. “Younger consumers expect content to be free; we have to deal with that.”“It’s critical we get their attention,” Griffin continued. “They’re not going to the newsstand.”But Griffin said that improving the speed of audience metrics—as evidenced by the MPA’s recently-announced initiative to do so—is the top priority in 2008. We need to figure out a way to give [marketers] metrics at the speed they are demanding,” Griffin said, before clarifying. “Well, maybe not that speed, but faster than we are now.” NEW YORK—With dwindling newsstand and advertising revenue, slashed marketing budgets, skyrocketing postal and production costs—and, oh yeah, that recession thing—consumer magazine publishers need be innovative, perhaps more than ever before, to survive.And they’re probably going to have to blow up the church-state boundary between advertising and editorial, too.Those were the bullet points that dominated a lively discussion among some 700 advertising and publishing executives at the 12th annual New York Magazine Day Wednesday.last_img read more

20th Anniversary PS4 sells for 15100 on eBay

first_imgLast week as part of the PlayStation 20th Anniversary celebrations Sony announced a PS1-themed PS4 console. The console uses the original PlayStation color scheme, as does the DualShock 4 and bundled PlayStation Camera. The only problem is, Sony has decided to manufacture just 12,300 of them.At the time I said this was a mistake on Sony’s part. There’s going to be very high demand to own one of these limited edition consoles, and that has already been proven on eBay. Over the weekend one of these anniversary PS4s went up for auction. The auction ended on December 6 with a winning bid of $15,100. That’s a profit of $14,600.01 for the seller technologysupps.According to technologysupps, the money from the winning bidder has already been transferred and they just need to wait until later this month to have their brand new, very special PS4 shipped out. However, although expensive at the moment, it could end up being a big mistake for the winner if Sony changes its mind about making more PS1-themed consoles.For now, that doesn’t look to be the case, but there is a lot of pressure coming from gamers to offer the special console more widely. Sony is a company, and if they see a big (profitable) market for the machine then they could and should reconsider the limited run. Even just releasing the themed DualShock 4 controller would net them a lot of sales.Unsurprisingly, a number of other auctions have appeared for the 20th Anniversary console, and I expect they’ll all sell for similar amounts if the limited run remains in place. It really isn’t worth paying $15,000+ for what is effectively a paint job on a console, though. I bet there’s some talented console modders/artists out there that would happily recreate the PS1 casing for a lot less on a standard PS4.last_img read more

Cops conduct special drive on highways to put brakes on recreational speed

first_imgKolkata: A week after the Ferrari accident at Pakuria in Howrah on National Highway 6, police conducted special drives on national highways to check “recreational speed driving” of premium cars on Sunday morning.A large section of premium car owners go out for “recreational speed driving” on Sunday mornings on the stretches of national highways, which are mainly straight and pass through thinly populated areas.But the police have now started taking necessary steps to check the same after the accident of the Ferrari car on June 3, in which a businessman from the city, Shibaji Roy, was killed and a 21-year-old woman was critically injured. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsA senior police officer said that the policemen carried out a special drive with an intention to check such activities on the national highways and at the same time, to create awareness among people.The police maintained a strict vigil on the stretches of national highways which are straight and pass through less populated areas.It may be mentioned that speed metres are installed at different places along national highways. Using the same, the police identified cars plying at a high speed, violating the traffic norms. A car can ply at a maximum speed of 120 km per hour on highways. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedAt the same time, the police carried out awareness campaign so that people who often travel on highways, do not violate traffic norms.It may be mentioned that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had launched a state-wide awareness drive, Safe Drive Save Life, to check road accidents and it also helped in bringing down the rate of accidents in the state.Now, the special drive is going to curb the problem on national highways as well, said a police officer.This comes at the time when there are around 35 such people in Kolkata who own super expensive cars. Each of the cars cost between Rs 2 crore to Rs 4 crore.But according to experts, there are apprehensions of a decline in sale of such cars at least for the time being, with the accident that claimed a life last week. 13 such cars were sold in Kolkata in 2017.last_img read more

Seize the Season

first_img Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Register Now » Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Sometimes it snows in Albuquerque, New Mexico, during the holidays and sometimes it doesn’t, but there’s one thing Chris Padilla, 31, and Shannon Jacques, 34, can always count on: It’ll be the busiest time of year for their business on eBay and their retail drop-off store. “When it comes to holiday selling around here, it’s a huge push of people coming in,” says Padilla, whose business, E-Sell4Dollars (eBay User ID: e-sell4dollars), has weekly sales of between $6,000 and $9,000.Padilla also knows that the holidays are a make-or-break time, because that’s when push really comes to shove. Every one of the thousand details that come with running a business on eBay becomes more critical than ever, from carrying the right products to making sure orders get to last-minute gift-givers in time. “Shipping is crazy,” Padilla says. “If you have 300 to 400 packages going out and you have to have them out in a couple of days, it can be a challenge.”Preparation is the key to surviving and prospering during the holiday madness. “Like anything else, luck favors the well-prepared,” says Todd Lutwak, eBay’s senior director of seller development. “The more you think about this and the earlier jump that you get, the better off people usually are.”Early BirdsOne seller’s early start may look like a late start to someone else. Barry A. Goldblatt, owner of Epower2go Inc. (eBay User ID: epower2go) in Plano, Texas, reached PowerSeller status only three months after starting on eBay. Goldblatt, who’s been selling online through other channels for years, says January is not too soon to begin preparing for the year-end holidays. In January, conventional retailers liquidate unsold inventory at steeper discounts than at any other time of year. So shortly after New Year’s Day he’s not just thinking about what he’ll sell during the next holiday season, he’s actually buying inventory. “The only way you [can] compete is to go to other sellers and retailers and pick up what they’re dumping after a big season,” says Goldblatt, 59.For other sellers, clearing the shelves may assume more importance than stocking them. Padilla, for instance, has to clear space in his drop-off location for the flood of items customers bring to him to sell over the holidays. While clearing space is important, it doesn’t require starting a year in advance. “Usually, we’ll start preparing the store the month before the holidays,” he says.You can decide when to start prepping by coordinating your schedule with the holidays you are serving. “Know the calendar and work backward,” Lutwak says. “Know when things like Hanukkah are, and go 15 or 20 days back.” That amount of time should give you the opportunity to get your items listed, complete the listings, receive payments and ship the items for delivery before the holiday in question, he says. “During the holiday season, buyers are incredibly sensitive to delivery times,” he adds. “So you’ve got to work from those days backward.”You may want to start working even earlier to make sure all your systems are tuned up for the expected rush. For instance, design holiday listing templates well ahead of time so you’ll be able to quickly place items for sale when the time comes. Padilla creates templates featuring holiday-themed décor, such as Christmas lights.Earlier still, begin building inventory so you won’t run out of hot items just when demand peaks. It’s important to purchase inventory at an economically feasible price, but you can’t buy something just because it’s cheap. Before acquiring any inventory, Goldblatt checks eBay listings to see how many other sellers offer the same or similar items. “If you’re not careful, you’ll buy something that 20 or 30 other people are already selling on eBay,” he says. “Then you can only compete on price.”Lutwak suggests paying attention to your own shopping experiences when deciding what to stock for the holidays. Start buying for your gift list as early as you can and take notes when you see shortages of popular products developing. Those items might be good candidates for your own eBay sales. “If you’re having trouble finding quantities in October, it’s a pretty good indication that come the holiday season, that stuff might be even more scarce,” Lutwak says.While looking for mass-produced goods that are inexpensive or in high demand, keep a sharp eye out for products that are always in short supply. “Look for the magic eBay buzzwords–limited edition, exclusive and so on,” Lutwak says. When you have something truly rare or even one-of-a-kind, what you paid for it assumes much less importance, and competition from other sellers becomes almost irrelevant.Best PracticesGood listing practices always carry great relevance, and the holidays are no exception. “The standard listing best practices apply: Write a great item title, use the proper keywords, have a great picture,” Lutwak says. “If you’re selling multiple quantities, using a listing subtitle is a good idea. And be concise. Give the buyer all the information they need to make a purchase decision without scrolling.”Some other practices come into play at the holidays. As one possibility, Lutwak suggests adding gift-giving recommendations. A listing for a toy, for instance, might describe it as a great gift for both boys and girls ages 5 and under. “During the holiday season, people are shopping for others and not really themselves,” he says. “It’s really good to say, ‘This is a great gift for the man who has everything,’ and that sort of thing.”Goldblatt sets up gift-giving categories on his site and tries to write titles for them that sizzle. For example, he picked “Palm Pilot Riot” for a category consisting of items related to Palm Pilot handheld computing devices. He takes time to shoot extra-sharp pictures and packs more of them into his listings than at other times. “You have just a few seconds to get somebody’s attention,” he says. “If it takes more than a few seconds to find something they want, you’ve probably lost them.”Descriptions also become more detailed. “If somebody’s buying a gift, they want to know everything about it,” Goldblatt says. “Was it new in the box? Was it properly stored? We try to answer every question that we can without being so verbose that the customer won’t read all of it.”Timing is everything during the holidays–more so than at other times of the year. While most sellers use the conventional seven-day listing, they may leave listings up for fewer days as the gift-giving days get closer to make sure listings will be completed in time for payment and shipping. Alternatively, Padilla says, sellers will use 10-day auction-style listings for special items to give bidders plenty of time to submit their offers. He’ll create listings as short as one day for things like tickets for events that are taking place very soon.Standing OutCreating effective listings isn’t the only move eBay sellers can make to rise above the crowd of sellers that appears during the holidays. Standing out starts with knowing who you want to stand out to, says iRebound owner Pedro Rivarola (eBay User ID: pjcrr1), who sells about $1,500 worth of exercise equipment on eBay each week. “I have a profile of my buyers,” says Rivarola, 58. “Most of them come from California, and most are women between [their] late 30s and late 60s. So I need to have that in mind.”Having an accurate customer profile comes in handy when executing strategies that are designed to help you stand out. For instance, offline advertising is a key component of many holiday-season selling plans. Rivarola mails post cards and catalogs to addresses he’s collected from past customers and can use the profile data he’s created to identify lists of other likely customers.To encourage people to give him a try, Rivarola offers free goodies such as T-shirts to people placing orders. “I need to give away something,” he says. “I need to make them believe that they’re [getting] a great deal by buying my product.” Don’t forget your eBay status when you’re looking for a way to stand out with offline ads. Rivarola includes his PowerSeller status, positive feedback rating and Detailed Seller Rating comments on his postcards and other mailers. “They will trust that because eBay is a reputable company, and my feedback is 100 percent positive,” he says.Direct mail isn’t the only channel you can or should use to bring buyers to your listings. “We do a lot of advertising through the local paper, and we do advertising online,” Padilla says. “We are also all over the Yellow Pages, which has worked out for us. If people are looking in the collectibles and antiques categories there, they’ll find a color ad with our name on it.”If shoppers are searching for gifts on eBay, they are often looking for hard-to-find items not available in their local stores or, even more frequently, for affordable prices–depending on the category and specific item. Goldblatt believes good pricing starts with good buying. “I have this idea that there needs to be a 4 to 1 ratio between what an eBay seller could buy something for and successfully sell it vs. what a standard retailer could do,” he says. This means that if an item retails for $10, for example, an eBay seller has to get it for no more than $2.50 to be able to reliably sell it for a profit.The holidays are also a good time to go beyond the auction-style listing format, Lutwak says. That’s because shoppers may be in a hurry and therefore uncomfortable with the delay and uncertainty of an auction. These buyers want other shopping formats such as Buy It Now so they can move on to the next item on their shopping list. “I’m not telling people not to sell in the auction format,” he says. “But that time of year is a good time to also sell in another [format], such as Fixed Price.”Another way to approach pricing is to use the Best Offer feature on Fixed-Price listings. “It’s a great feature on eBay, and we’ve enhanced it this year,” says Lutwak. Best Offer allows you to automatically accept an offer over a specified amount. “Say you have a product you sell for $100,” says Lutwak. “You can tell the system, I’ll accept any offer over $94. If someone makes an offer of $97, it’ll say go.”One time you’ll want to go with an auction-style listing is when you have a hot item that’s sure to draw attention from many motivated bidders. However, take care not to set the bid floor too high. “People on eBay don’t like auctions that start off too high,” says Padilla, who urges his clients to set bid prices at no more than $9.99 for almost everything.Your customers won’t like everything they buy, of course, and sometimes they’ll want to return items. When that happens, most sellers who have a perfect feedback rating have a no-questions-asked policy. “If they don’t get it or it gets there broken, we don’t argue,” says Goldblatt. Instead, they apologize and offer to replace the item at no cost–including shipping–or they immediately issue a credit. “We try to make it as simple as possible,” he says. “There’s probably no way to maintain 100 percent positive feedback ratings as we get bigger, but our goal is to do that for as long as possible.”Clearly, Padilla offers great customer service: He has sustained perfect feedback ratings on more than 5,000 transactions. He also does not change his policies during the holidays. “We always try and keep firm on our return policies,” he says. “We say everything is sold as-is. However, if we ever get a buyer who has a concern or is not satisfied, we always try to offer other options. We’ll get them to send it back and we’ll replace it if it’s something we have more than one of. We really try to work with them.”Shipping for SuccessWorking with customers during the holidays means making sure they get their purchases in time to give as gifts on the appropriate day. For this, Goldblatt emphasizes shipping items as soon as possible. “Typically, if someone orders in the morning, it ships that afternoon,” he says. “If it’s ordered in the afternoon, it ships the next day. We ship Priority Mail, which is reasonably fast.”Rivarola offers express shipping as an option during the holidays, but few take advantage of it because of the cost–his trampolinelike rebounders weigh 37 pounds, which means rapid shipping costs a lot. “We can do it, but it will be quite expensive,” he says. “And we cannot just give [express shipping] to them for free unless we raise the price.”Speaking of costs, this year shipping is going to cost more across the board than it has in the past, Goldblatt says. He and other eBay sellers have all had to cope with higher prices from their shipping suppliers as fuel costs have climbed. The preferred coping strategy is to pass it on to customers, despite the occasional complaint. “We can’t take a hit on shipping,” he says. “We have to sell it for what it costs us to ship and pack.”Fortunately, there’s one solution to shipping and packing conundrums that doesn’t cost a penny: Include clear, honest and detailed shipping information in every listing. That’s especially important during the time-strapped holidays, Lutwak says. Padilla likes to use a table or matrix showing the date items need to be purchased by for them to arrive for the holiday. “We push that to make sure buyers know when they have to get their item paid for if they want to have it in time,” he says.Tables and matrices don’t work so well when it comes to international shipping. The vagaries of customs procedures in different countries mean shipments can be unexpectedly and unavoidably held up, Padilla says. “With international shipments, it’s hard to fully guarantee anything, because it’s so dependent on the customs offices.” Despite the reliability issue, Lutwak urges sellers to offer international shipping. New shipping features on eBay make it easier than ever to print labels and obtain discounts from shippers for international deliveries. And depressed U.S. currency valuations make U.S. sellers more competitive than ever to shoppers in other countries, he says. Also, international shoppers already represent a big market. Says Lutwak, “During the last holiday, I had certain electronics sellers tell me that more than 50 percent of the business was international business.”No matter where they come from, shoppers always like to save money on shipping. Padilla leverages that love of discounts by offering reduced shipping on multi-item purchases during the holiday season. “A lot of Stores won’t do that because it requires a lot more work,” he says. “But we see an increase in sales when we do. If [customers are] looking through your Store and you offer combined shipping, they’ll look for something else they can buy so they can save on shipping.”Service CountsEven offering truly remarkable savings may not help if customer service falls short. And good customer service is largely just a matter of being ready and willing to communicate with customers about what concerns them, says Rivarola. “When you understand the issues of others and you are behind your product whatever happens, you say, ‘Call me anytime, and I will solve it, whatever it takes,'” he says. “That’s real customer service.”Sometimes during the holiday rush, sellers mistakenly try to take shortcuts on answering questions, especially when they’ve made extra efforts to write listings that answer almost any conceivable question, Lutwak says. He points out that many holiday shoppers have never done business with you or even on eBay, so when they ask questions, it may not be because they don’t know the answer. They sometimes just want to reassure themselves that a responsive individual is behind that listing. “Answering questions quickly is always a really good best practice,” Lutwak says. “Often when buyers see you answer a question, you’ll see a bid or purchase.”After a purchase, it’s a good idea to send out a comprehensive e-mail announcing that the product has shipped, thanking the customer for the purchase and prompt payment, and providing other information such as tracking numbers and expected delivery dates. Rivarola goes even further than that, mailing a handwritten thank-you note to every customer. “It takes a little more time,” he says, “but that’s the way it should be.”Goldblatt regards the opportunity for this kind of after-sale follow-up as one of the best features of the holidays. Sure, the end of the year is a critical period for all kinds of sellers, not just those on eBay. But most, if not all, sellers hope to be in business for well beyond this holiday season. So Goldblatt aims to take advantage of the extra traffic to drive more than this year’s sales.”It’s a time when we get a lot more visitors, and we know that,” Goldblatt says. “So we’re also using it to build business for succeeding years and get more people to connect to us via the mailing list. That’s really where we’re headed.”Mark Henricks writes on business and technology for leading publications and is author of Not Just a Living.

first_img Dodd-Frank FOMC Yellen 2017-02-14 Seth Welborn Yellen on Dodd-Frank and Interest Rates February 14, 2017 647 Views At Tuesday’s meeting with the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs, Federal Reserve Chair Janet L. Yellin painted a positive picture of the current economy and increasing job growth, but declined to say anything definite about a hike in the interest rates.‘The FOMC is committed to promoting maximum employment and price stability, as mandated by the Congress,” she said. “The Committee maintained an unchanged target range for the federal funds rate for most of the year in order to support improvement in the labor market and an increase in inflation toward 2 percent.”She said that the Committee at its December meeting raised the target range for the federal funds rate by 1/4 percentage point, to 1/2 to 3/4 percent.“Inflation moved up over the past year, mainly because of the diminishing effects of the earlier declines in energy prices and import prices,” she explained. “Total consumer prices as measured by the personal consumption expenditures (PCE) index rose 1.6 percent in the 12 months ending in December, still below the FOMC’s 2 percent objective but up 1 percentage point from its pace in 2015.”Yellin did admit that the economic outlook is uncertain, and monetary policy is not on a preset course. “FOMC participants will adjust their assessments of the appropriate path for the federal funds rate in response to changes to the economic outlook and associated risks as informed by incoming data,” she said.At its meeting that concluded early this month, the Committee left the target range for the federal funds rate unchanged but reiterated that it expects the evolution of the economy to warrant further gradual increases in the federal funds rate to achieve and maintain its employment and inflation objectives.“As I noted on previous occasions, waiting too long to remove accommodation would be unwise,” Yellin said, “Potentially requiring the FOMC to eventually raise rates rapidly, which could risk disrupting financial markets and pushing the economy into recession.”She cited the fact that Incoming data suggest that labor market conditions continue to strengthen and inflation is moving up to 2 percent, consistent with the Committee’s expectations. “At our upcoming meetings, the Committee will evaluate whether employment and inflation are continuing to evolve in line with these expectations, in which case a further adjustment of the federal funds rate would likely be appropriate.”Curt Long, Chief Economist for the National Association of Federally-Insured Credit Unions (NAFCU) interpreted Yellin’s remarks to mean that a rate hike is on the horizon. “Chair Yellen provided an upbeat assessment of recent economic progress,” he said. “While she left herself and the rest of the FOMC plenty of room to maneuver, she did suggest that a March rate hike is on the table. Investors remain somewhat skeptical, but a strong jobs report in three weeks could tilt expectations toward a move.”In response to President Trump’s allegation that Dodd-Frank is a “disaster” and that many of his friends can’t get loans due to “strangling” regulations, Yellen said an “extremely low number” of small businesses had complained of access to credit as their main problem.To support her claim, she quoted some numbers from a National Federation of Independent Businesses survey showing that just 4 percent of respondents are unable to get the loans they need.”We have seen healthy growth in actual lending in the economy,” Yellen said, noting that bank commercial and industrial lending has exceeded its 2008 peak.center_img in Daily Dose, Featured, Government Sharelast_img read more

Russian jailed after maiming man who kissed his girlfriend in Ayia Napa

first_imgA 24-year-old Russian man, Alexander Okazkov, was jailed by the Larnaca-Famagusta court on Monday for causing grievous bodily harm to a 49-year-old Greek Cypriot whom he caught kissing his girlfriend, 27, in Ayia Napa last year.According to the court, the incident happened on April 12, last year when the older man bought a beer for the woman and she failed to tell him she was on holiday with her partner. She let the Greek Cypriot man walk her back to the apartment she was sharing with Okazkov, who saw them kissing.He attacked the older man, grabbing him by the throat but it went no further. In the ensuing days however, he began to complain of dizziness, which became worse and by April 18 woke up and was unable to speak, and when he stood up began to lose consciousness, the court ruling said.The Greek Cypriot man was taken by ambulance to the Nicosia General Hospital where doctors found serious damage to his carotid artery, caused by injury. This had led to permanent brain damage and even though the victim is still undergoing treatment, he is unable to speak properly and can only produce small words and phrases. No significant improvement in its condition is expected, according to doctorsIn its decision, the court said the incident had been triggered by “the behaviour of a 24-year-old’s companion, and that this provocative and unacceptable conduct was not the only cause of the unfortunate incident.”The defendant’s actions when he saw them kissing had also been “unacceptable and provocative”, the court ruled, but noted that it had not been a planned attack but an impulsive one. The court took into account the mitigating factors that the 24-year-old had a clean criminal record, his young age, his family and personal circumstances and the fact that while in custody had tried to committee suicide and had been treated at the Athalassa psychiatric hospital, but stopped short of granting a request by the defence that the two-year sentence be suspended. You May LikeBrighterWoman.comHow to get rid of stiff neck at homeBrighterWoman.comUndoproperty.feedbox.info10 things you should not put on a credit cardproperty.feedbox.infoUndoThebest1.xyzVery Beautiful And Very Dangerous Places On The PlanetThebest1.xyzUndo Data is the new oil so watch out for mass mining – Netflix filmUndoIran’s Revolutionary Guards publish purported exchange with British warshipUndoThe Deniz boat incident showed clearly the intentions of the Turkish sideUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
