He clarified that the city government has noproblem when it comes to the registration stage because the business permitcould be issued in 30 to 45 minutes once the documents are complete. Businesses operating without permits aredepriving the city government of much needed revenues. The most prevalent type of businesses in thecity were in wholesale trade and merchandising, followed by the food andbeverage and hospitality sectors, with real estate and leasing coming infourth. “Perosa akon, ang mga tawo nga hopeless shouldresign. The city government will look for persons who are more proactive,” hestressed. “That applies even to me. If I cannot do my job I should resign.” This angered Treñas. It recently came to Treñas’ attention that aseptic tank desludging company has long been operating without a businesspermit. “Certain people should be creative in theirjobs. They should not wait for me to tell them what to do,” said Treñas. PECO failed to pay its real property tax since2016, thus the BPLO did not issue it a permit. “If he (Tabud) cannot do it, he can resign,”said Treñas. The problem occurs during the pre-registrationstage where the client has to apply for registration, either at the Departmentof Trade and Industry or the Securities and Exchange Commission, fire safetyinspection certificate from the Bureau of Fire Protection and building andoccupancy permits from the City Engineer’s Office. “For a person holding that position to saythey have no resources, he should resign. That should be his New Year’sresolution. If he cannot hack his job, he should quit,” said Treñas. Iloilo City Hall. IAN PAUL CORDERO/PN BPLO’s 2018 data showed that the businesssector here was predominantly made up of microenterprises – around 90 percentof which had asset size of not more than P3 million. In a previous interview, Tabud said LGUs weregiven three years to comply since the law took effect in July 2018. As the one issuing business permits, the BPLOis mandated to follow Republic Act 11032, or the Ease of Doing Business andEfficient Government Service Delivery Act of 2018. Treñas said his administration neededproactive department heads. According to the mayor, if the BPLO neededmore personnel and logistics like service vehicles, Tabud could always requestfrom him. The law mandates local government units (LGUs)to establish a business one-stop-shop (BOSS) for applicants of building permit,certificate of occupancy and business permit. It also prescribes the number ofsteps and days that should be complied with for the documents to be released. Just last month, Treñas blasted Panay ElectricCo. (PECO) after learning that the latter failed to renew its business permitfor 2019. “Nag-createna ko gani task force para mabuligan sya,” stressed the mayor. ILOILO City – How many businesses in this cityoperate without permits? Mayor Jerry Treñas wanted to know but the answer fromthe city government’s Business Permits and Licensing Office (BPLO) did notsatisfy him. According to BPLO chief Norman Tabud, his office did not haveenough logistics to determine which businesses were operating illegally. Republic Act 11032 mandates that documents forsimple transactions must be released in three days and seven days for complextransactions. For those that need highly-technical decisions, the periodrequired is not more than 20 days./PN
Sevilla appear to be holding out for a better price for midfielder Luis Alberto, despite sporting director Ramon Verdejo admitting Liverpool have made a “very good” offer. “Luis Alberto is Sevilla’s because Barcelona have not exercised their option to purchase,” he told the Spanish club’s television channel. “Interest from Liverpool is real but nothing is signed. The player has received an important offer, but at the moment he is a Sevilla player. “The first offer the club has is very good, but we are not satisfied yet.” Monchi said Alberto’s spell at Barcelona, for whom he scored 11 goals in the second division, had increased his price. “I recall that a fuss was made when we loaned him out,” he added. “As it stands, we all agree that he now has a better value in the market and has grown as a footballer. “Is it a good deal to sell him for the figures they speak of? The offer we have on the table is a very good one with respect to where Luis is currently. “We don’t know what will happen in the future. To date, we haven’t accepted the offer.” The 20-year-old has been a long-time target for the Reds and made their move once Barcelona B decided not to take up their option of a permanent deal after the player’s loan spell with them last season. Reports suggest Sevilla want £7million for Alberto and Verdejo, known in Spain as Monchi, confirmed there had been an offer from Liverpool. Press Association
Being fitter, stronger and having his wife as coach have been key factors to why Kim Collins continues to defy time and run faster even as he gets older.Collins, who turns 40 in April, opened his season at the Central Hurdles and Relays meet at G.C. Foster College on Saturday, winning the 60-metre dash in 6.53 seconds.Iran’s Reza Ghasemi’s 6.52s leads the world so far this season and Collins’ time was run outdoors, so it won’t be ratified, but one gets the feeling it won’t be long before the 39-year-old Kittitian grabs pole position once again like he did in 2015.Last season, Collins ran nine races unbeaten over 60m indoors and had the top-four fastest times in the world.The closest sprinter to his world-leading 6.47 was 26-year-old Ryan Bailey of the USA, who ran 6.50s in Seattle on February 14. Ironically, on that same day Collins ran that same time in Berlin, tying the American for the fifth fastest time of the year.Collin’s speed has not been confined to the indoor circuit as, in 2014, he ran the 100 metres in a personal best 9.96 seconds, almost one-tenth of a second faster than the 10.07s he ran to win the men’s 100m final at the World Championships in Paris in 2003.The Jamaican-based athlete explained that it is his approach to training that has allowed him to defy the odds and defy time.”Most athletes go in the opposite direction,” he revealed. “They come and they train hard, extremely hard every day and this goes on for months. In the end, their bodies will begin to break down. I come from the opposite direction. Whatever it is you’re trying to do, you must get fit first. So before I go to sprint, my body must be fit.”WEIGHT TRAININGHe also revealed that he is a lot stronger now than when he was world champion 13 years ago, having adopted weight training later on in his career, something he never did when he was younger.”I am way, way stronger now because back then I wasn’t doing weights, I wasn’t taking vitamins, nothing like that,” he said. “If I was doing what I am doing now back in 2003, I would have been a lot better. I would have been a lot faster and probably would have moved on a long time ago because I would have had such a great career.”He gives a lot of credit to his wife, Paula, who he said, helps him be honest about how his body feels.

Advertisement It’s screenplay season — that special time of year when Hollywood’s PR armies unleash a volley of film scripts across the Internet in hopes that Academy voters (and other awards-season pundits) will page through them to get insight on how some of the most acclaimed films of the year were originally conceived by their screenwriters. More than mere transcriptions of dialogue and scene descriptions, screenplays are the blueprints that film crews work from when planning shots and sequences, and studying them can shed unexpected light on a project’s journey from script to screen. What’s more, they’re free, for a limited time only — so you may as well take advantage.22 July (Netflix)Written by Paul GreengrassBased on One of Us by Åsne SeierstadAll Is True (Sony Classics)Screenplay by Ben Elton The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (Netflix)Written by Joel Coen & Ethan CoenTimothée Chalamet and Steve Carell in Beautiful Boy (Francois Duhamel/Amazon Studios)Beautiful Boy (Amazon Studios)Screenplay by Luke Davies & Felix van Groeningenbased on the books Beautiful Boy by David Sheff and Tweak by Nic SheffBlack Panther (Disney)By Ryan Coogler & Joe Robert ColeBLACKkKLANSMAN (Focus Features)Written by Charlie Wachtel & David Rabinowitz and Kevin Willmott & Spike Lee Login/Register With: Facebook LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Twitter Advertisement Advertisement
FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — B.C.’s chief forester Diane Nicholls announced today that the allowable annual cut for the Fort St. John Timber Supply Area will remain at 2,115,000 cubic metres.Nicholls said that the new allowable annual cut level will be partitioned into two allowable levels for deciduous and coniferous trees. The cut level for conifers is 1.2 million cubic metres per year, with a maximum of 672,000 cubic metres from the core area – the southern and central part of the TSA. Within the core area, spruce should comprise no more than 50 percent of the conifer volume.A total of 915,000 cubic metres of deciduous species trees will be allowed to be harvested, with a maximum of 512,000 cubic metres annually coming from the central and southern core area. “By maintaining the Fort St. John allowable annual cut, while limiting the amount and species of timber harvested from the southern and central portion of the TSA, I’m confident my decision supports the sustainability of the timber supply,” said Nicholls.She said that the partitions address public and First Nations concerns that timber harvesting is concentrated in the core area of the TSA and impacts wildlife habitat. The chief forester’s determination takes into account winter range for ungulates, including boreal caribou, mountain caribou and Stone’s sheep, as well as habitat requirements for other wildlife, which are managed by excluding or limiting harvest in wildlife habitat areas.The leading tree species are white spruce, lodgepole pine, aspen and black spruce. There are also minor amounts of subalpine fir, birch, balsam poplar and larch present. The Fort St. John TSA covers about 4.6 million hectares in the northeast corner of B.C., and includes the communities of Fort St. John, Taylor, and Hudson’s Hope. There are two sawmills and one oriented strand board facility currently operating in the Supply Area.In the western portion of the timber supply area, the Muskwa-Kechika Management Area contains protected areas and special management zones that maintain wilderness and wildlife habitat areas.
New Delhi: Millions voted across 95 Lok Sabha seats in 12 states and Puducherry on Thursday in the second phase of the staggered battle for a new Parliament, marred by stray violence in West Bengal and muted polling in Srinagar. CPI-M MP and candidate Mohd Salim was attacked allegedly by Trinamool Congress activists in Raiganj constituency where he is seeking re-election when he went to a polling booth to check reports of vote rigging, officials said. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) also accused the Trinamool Congress of unleashing violence on its opponents, a charge denied by the ruling party in West Bengal. A total of 15.7 crore electorate can pick 95 Lok Sabha members out of 1,606 contestants on Thursday. Stone pelters targeted a polling station in Srinagar city, injuring a policeman. Most Srinagar polling booths reported sparse polling following a call from separatists to boycott the nationwide seven-phase polls that will end on May 19 and whose outcome will be known on May 23. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday Polling in all other places was reportedly peaceful although complaints of glitches in electronic voting machines (EVMs) came from several states, briefly halting the electoral process. Unfazed by the summer heat and dust, voters turned out in large numbers in Karnataka. There was nearly 40 per cent polling between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. spread across 14 parliamentary constituencies, the main fight between the ruling Congress-JD-S alliance and the BJP. Polling was also brisk in Tamil Nadu where people will be electing 38 of 39 Lok Sabha members — voting in Vellore has been postponed — and 18 members to the state Assembly. Tamil Nadu, where the main contest is between the coalitions led by the AIADMK and the DMK, too reported nearly 40 per cent voting till 1 p.m. Puducherry voted for its lone Lok Sabha seat. After initial dull moments, the voting picked up dramatically in Odisha, which is electing five Lok Sabha and 35 Assembly members. The ruling Biju Janata Dal (BJD) said it was confident of retaining power but the BJP said it was looking forward to a victory. In Bihar, 32 per cent voting was reported till 1 p.m. in five of 40 Lok Sabha seats. But people in about a dozen villages in all five constituencies boycotted the elections to protest against lack of development. Uttar Pradesh’s voting percentage was racing towards 40 per cent in all eight constituencies: Mathura, Hathras, Amroha, Agra, Fatehpur-Sikri, Aligarh, Nagina, Bulandshahr. While brisk voting was reported in the Udhampur Lok Sabha seat in Jammu and Kashmir, with over 32 per cent polling in just five hours, polling in Srinagar was muted. A police constable was injured in stone pelting by youths trying to disrupt the election in Chrar-e-Sharief in Badgam district, which falls in the Srinagar Lok Sabha seat. Despite several incidents of violence including an attack on CPI-M’s Salim and the smashing of an EVM, Bengal registered over 51 per cent polling in the three northern constituencies of Jalpaiguri, Raiganj and Darjeeling. After a dull start, voting zoomed in Maharashtra which will elect 10 of the 48 Lok Sabha members on Thursday. Voting also took place on Thursday in Chhattisgarh and Manipur.
