Concerned about USTaliban deal Kabul seeks clarification

first_imgKabul: The Afghan government expressed doubts Wednesday about a prospective deal between the US and the Taliban, saying officials need more information about the risks it poses. US special envoy Zalmay Khalilzad was in Kabul this week, when he shared with Afghan officials an agreement “in principle” that Washington has forged with the Taliban and would lead to a pull-out of American troops. The prospect of a US-Taliban deal has caused much concern among many Afghans, who feel sidelined from the process, worry the hardline Islamists will return to power, and see a beaten America selling out their interests in a bid to escape Afghanistan after 18 years of gruelling war. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USSediq Sediqqi, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani’s spokesman, said that while the Kabul administration supports any progress in an eventual peace process, it wants to prevent any negative consequences. Kabul is “concerned, therefore we seek clarification about this document so that we can carefully analyse the risks and potential negative consequences, and prevent any danger it may cause,” Sediqqi said on Twitter. The statement is Kabul’s first such reaction to the prospective deal, which Khalilzad presented on Monday. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential pollsGhani and his government have until now been largely sidelined in negotiations between the US and the Taliban, who see the Afghan president as illegitimate and have insisted on dealing first with the Americans. Kabul’s concerns build on a position expressed Tuesday by former US ambassadors to Afghanistan, who warned in a joint statement against a major troop withdrawal without a comprehensive peace accord. “A major withdrawal of US forces should follow, not come in advance, of (a) real peace agreement,” the former envoys wrote. According to parts of the deal made public so far, the Pentagon would pull thousands of its 13,000 or so troops from five bases across Afghanistan by early next year, provided the Taliban hew to their security pledges. The insurgents have said they will renounce Al-Qaeda, fight the Islamic State group and stop jihadists using Afghanistan as a safe haven. Ultimately, though, Kabul has no say on whether the US and the Taliban make a deal, and can only hope the insurgents honour a pledge to sit down with the Afghan government to build a separate accord. Afghans have been on tenterhooks for weeks while the US and the Taliban flesh out what are thought to be the final details of their deal. President Donald Trump was due to look at the proposed pact this week. If he and Taliban leaders approve, it could be signed and announced any day. But even as negotiations for an accord have entered an apparent end phase, violence has surged across Afghanistan. On Monday, the Taliban launched a massive attack in Kabul, where they targeted a fortified compound used by foreign aid groups and agencies. At least 16 people were killed, with more than 100 wounded. On Saturday, the Taliban attempted to seize the provincial capital of Kunduz in the north, and on Sunday, they launched an operation in the city of Pul-e Khumri, the capital of neighbouring Baghlan province.last_img read more

The Source revamps stores to avoid becoming walking dead in consumer tech

TORONTO — The Source is staging a transformation to turn its stores into electronics playgrounds in an effort to boost sales as the consumer technology industry faces pressure on multiple fronts, including big-box retailers and the ease of online shopping.The company formerly known as Radio Shack is in the midst of overhauling its stores, doing away with walls of boxed products in favour of a new aesthetic with a more modern flair — bright lights, wider aisles and even wood accents.It is setting up interactive displays to allow customers to connect their smartphones into headphones and speakers so they can test the sound with music they enjoy rather than a store-selected soundtrack, said Charles Brown, president of the Source.The first revamped store opened in the Yorkdale Shopping Centre in Toronto in 2015. The Source is aiming to complete the renovations at more than half of its 550 locations by the end of the year.The reality, Brown said, is that the Source needs to adapt to a world where consumer electronics are no longer found exclusively at specialty outlets — they can be bought at convenience stores, gas stations and other retail pit stops, not to mention online.“Retail now, there’s just so much disruption,” Brown said in an interview.Revenue in the Canadian consumer electronics industry has declined over the past five years at an annualized rate of 1.2 per cent, according to estimates by IBISWorld. The market-research firm projects revenue will continue to fall between 2017 and 2022 at an annualized rate of 0.8 per cent.The drop comes as people increasingly purchase electronics from Amazon, eBay and mass merchants like Costco, according to a recent report by the firm.Electronics retailers have been part of a wave of store closures in Canada in recent years. The Source has been among those swept up by the trend, closing about 200 locations since it was acquired by BCE Inc. in 2009. Competitors such as Sony and Best Buy have also shrunk or shut their doors altogether.Brown, who has headed the Source since 2011, said it became clear it needed to invest in change to remain competitive.“Standing still means you’re just going to be another zombie retailer,” Brown said.“You’re just walking dead … and it’s just a matter of when your clock’s going to run out.”Under the changes, the Source offers a smaller selection of products in its stores. But Brown said that is an advantage over its bigger competitors that can overwhelm customers with their offerings.The Source, a private company headquartered in Barrie, Ont., doesn’t release its earnings publicly. But Brown said the transformation is paying off, with same-store sales at renovated locations (those open for at least a year) having risen between 10 and 30 per cent.He said the company has also invested more in its staff, doubling annual training hours from 40 to 80, to improve customer service. It also began providing benefits to its part-time employees as of two years ago in addition to its full-time staff.Last year, about 30,000 people submitted applications for retail jobs in the stores, Brown said.“Three years ago? We would have been lucky to have a tenth of that.”Follow @AleksSagan on Twitter. read more

Martha Stewart Develops InHouse Ad Portal

first_imgMartha Stewart Living Omnimedia has developed an in-house ad portal it says will provide its advertisers more efficient delivery and receipt of advertising materials.The portal, which has tabs for all of MSLO’a magazines, allows the publisher to receive and transfer ad files “almost instantly,” according to Dora Cardinale, executive vice president of print production. “We can push ad material extensions even closer to press time than we have in the past, which allows us to provide more flexibility for our salespeople and our clients,” Cardinale said. “This process is also environmentally friendly since it allows for the elimination of thousands of discs that, after a single use, literally become landfill.” While other publishers have signed deals with Web-based ad portals, like SendMyAd.com, to manage their ad traffic, MSLO began developing the portal about six months ago using an open source platform. After a soft launch in May, MSLO’s portal debuted June 2.“We will continue to solicit feedback and comments from our users and refine elements as needed,” Cardinale said.last_img read more

Imran warmed up to be Pakistan PM by being cricket captain

first_imgIn this 25 March, 1992 file photo, Pakistan`s cricket captain Imran Khan, waving a Pakistan flag, is cheered by his teammates after Pakistan defeated England in the World Cup Cricket final, in Melbourne, Australia. Photo: APBy the force of his skills and personality, the charismatic Imran Khan endured in the toughest job in Pakistan for a decade.As captain of the national cricket team, his crowning glory was to drive the team to its first and only Cricket World Cup triumph in 1992.He immediately retired from Pakistan duty at age 39, opened a cancer hospital in memory of his mother two years later, and launched his political party, Tehreek-e-Insaf (Movement of Justice) four years later.On Thursday, Khan’s party took a commanding lead in the Pakistan general election and he was set to become the first international cricketer in the world to be elected as a country’s prime minister, considered the second toughest job in Pakistan.”Honesty is the one word which sums up Imran Khan’s whole life,” Khan’s long-time teammate, Javed Miandad, told The Associated Press.”Imran is a sort of a man who never gives up, and only an honest man can do this. If you are dishonest you make lots of compromises in your life, and Imran hates to do this.”Miandad was Khan’s predecessor as Pakistan captain and became his vice-captain. They were in the team together for two decades, and even played for Sussex in English county cricket in the 1970s.In his time, Khan was the best allrounder in the game, the finest cricketer Pakistan has produced, and one of its greatest heart-throbs. He was as comfortable mixing with celebrities off the field as he was facing West Indies bats and bouncers on the field.Khan even got better with age, his second decade in the Pakistan team eclipsing his first. In his last 10 years, he averaged 50 with the bat and 19 as a fast bowler.The Oxford graduate played 88 tests, a record 48 as captain. Under the “Lion of Pakistan,” the team lost only eight times. They enjoyed historic series wins over England in England and India in India, and dueled with the great West Indies sides to draws.Perhaps Khan’s greatest legacy was to transform Pakistan cricket’s modern-day fortunes, turn a mediocre side into exciting champions. There was no better example than the Cricket World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.Pakistan won only one of its first five matches, then won the next three to squeeze into the semifinals by a point. They came from behind to upset New Zealand in Auckland to reach their first final, where they defeated England by 22 runs in a thriller in Melbourne. Khan took the last England wicket to clinch the victory.Khan was renowned for giving raw but talented cricketers a chance. The likes of heir-apparent Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis and Inzamam-ul-Haq all played under Khan’s captaincy before making big names for themselves in international cricket, and even went on to lead Pakistan.”It was in your leadership skip @ImrankhanPTI that we became world champions in 1992. It is in your leadership that we can again become a great democratic country,” Akram wrote on Twitter.Recent captain Shahid Afridi tweeted: “Pakistanis have a lot of expectations from u I really hope u lead from the front!”Khan’s never-say-die approach stood him in good stead for politics.His party won just one seat until the 2013 general elections when they won 27 seats in the National Assembly, the lower house of parliament. This time, they have won at least 119.”Slow and steady wins the race,” Miandad said of Khan’s 22-year struggle in politics.”It’s not easy in Pakistan to topple the big guns of politics, it needs patience and continuous struggle.”Miandad believes Khan has the ability to clampdown on corruption, and will not compromise to make decisions on merit.”During his playing days, Imran was a man of principle,” Miandad said. “I know him very well, he will be the same in his next innings in politics.”last_img

With FilmStruck Shutdown Criterion Collection Inks WarnerMedia Deal to Launch Standalone Streaming

first_imgThe Criterion Channel will be picking up where FilmStruck left off, with thematic programming, regular filmmaker spotlights, and actor retrospectives, featuring major classics and hard-to-find discoveries from Hollywood and around the world, complete with special features like commentaries, behind-the-scenes footage and original documentaries. The Criterion Channel will continue to produce their guest programmer series, “Adventures in Moviegoing,” which has already featured such cinephile luminaries as Barry Jenkins, Guillermo del Toro, Bill Hader, and Mira Nair. Criterion’s monthly 15-minute film school, Observations on Film Art, Tuesday’s Short + Feature, and the Friday double-bill will all be back as well. “The Criterion Channel will be picking up where FilmStruck left off, with thematic programming, regular filmmaker spotlights, and actor retrospectives, featuring major classics and hard-to-find discoveries from Hollywood and around the world,” the companies said.The decision to shut down FilmStruck prompted a backlash among film buffs as well as Hollywood directors and actors. Barbra Streisand and Guillermo del Toro were among more than 40,000 people who signed a petition to save FilmStruck.The Criterion Channel will be regularly priced at $10.99 per month or $100 for an annual subscription.

Konami reveals first nonKojima Metal Gear Solid game

first_imgAt Gamescom today Konami shocked the world by revealing a brand new Metal Gear game that looks like it has more in common with Left 4 Dead than anything previous.A four-player co-op experience, Metal Gear Survive is set immediately after the events of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, but it strays from the concept pretty heavily. Here we find out that all the surviving heroes from the finale get sucked through a number of wormholes that lands them in an alternate universe. This wouldn’t be so bad if it weren’t for the fact that this alternate universe is full of zombies with crystals lodged in their heads.As the end of the trailer seems to hint, there might be some kind of Metal Gear to face as well… a giant zombie version, perhaps?(Spoilers for the end of Metal Gear Solid V are to be found here, so watch at your own risk.)As was made very publicly clear, Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojjima has parted ways with Konami and hasn’t been involved in this, so fan reaction has already been mixed to say the least. Besides this teaser trailer there are no (ahem) solid details on the game just yet, except for the fact that Survive is meant to be a co-op experience.We can infer a few things from the trailer, however, such as how it will most likely feature some sort of base-building aspect to it. After all, we see Mother Base being pulled into the wormholes and dropped on the planet, and it seems to become your new safe haven for keeping out the zombie creatures. There also seems to be a reliance on physical, up-close weapons, but we’ll see how that plays out.Expect Metal Gear Survive to hit sometime in 2017. Hey, at least it beats a Metal Gear pachinko game?Here’s some additional speculation as to what this game is courtesy of IGN:last_img read more
