RBI CEO strikes conciliatory tone with disgruntled Tim Hortons franchisees

by Aleksandra Sagan, The Canadian Press Posted Jun 5, 2017 9:40 am MDT Last Updated Jun 5, 2017 at 4:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email RBI CEO strikes conciliatory tone with disgruntled Tim Hortons franchisees Chief Executive Officer of Restaurant Brands International in an interview with The Canadian Press in Oakville, Ontario on Monday June 5, 2017. The CEO of the parent company of Tim Hortons says he recently met with disgruntled franchisees who have formed a rogue association and encouraged them to run for a seat on the chain’s franchisee advisory board. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Frank Gunn OAKVILLE, Ont. – The head of Tim Hortons extended an olive branch Monday to disgruntled franchisees, saying he is now willing to directly discuss their concerns with them about how the coffee-and-doughnut chain is run.Daniel Schwartz, CEO of Restaurant Brands International (TSX:QSR), said he has been meeting with some store owners who have accused the company of mismanagement, including using tactics such as intimidation to improve the bottom line.“We’re just constantly trying to get better and trying to improve and we’re willing to listen to good feedback from people,” Schwartz said in an interview after RBI’s annual general meeting in Oakville, Ont.RBI has been in a public tussle with a rogue association of Tim Hortons cafe owners called the Great White North Franchisee Association (GWNFA), which formed to raise franchisee concerns. The group has held town halls across Canada, hired a public relations company and secured legal representation to get their message across.Schwartz said while their input is welcome, he would prefer it if they relayed it privately.“I don’t think it makes sense to argue and debate about how to run the brand publicly,” he said. “But we’re always welcome to hear feedback if it’s constructive and done in a respectful private way.”His discussions with members of GWNFA signal a reversal, as he has said previously he would not have direct communication with the association.Schwartz encouraged the franchisees to run for a seat on the chain’s franchisee advisory board in the fall.GWNFA said Monday in a statement that two meetings with RBI have taken place in the last two weeks, but “no commitments have been made on any issue.”“We are open to a constructive partnership with RBI, but have made clear that this will not be through the advisory board,” the statement said. “We will not be co-opted into an undemocratic mechanism that is under RBI’s control.”Marc Caira, the former CEO of Tim Hortons and current vice-chairman who engineered its US$11-billion sale to RBI three years ago, said GWNFA’s rumblings are a distraction from what should be its focus: its customers.“I, as a shareholder, do I like this noise?” said Caira when asked about the recent negative media attention surrounding Tim Hortons. “Of course not. …“What I want them focused on — both management and franchisees — is to focus on the consumers, bring out innovative products and services to grow the business profitably over the long term.”Follow @AleksSagan on Twitter. read more

Defending champion Ohio State wrestling team enters new season with bullseye on

Coach Tom Ryan lifts the the Buckeyes’ national championship trophy as fans applaud during a national championship celebration for the OSU wrestling team on March 28 at St. John Arena. Credit: Lantern File PhotoWhile the Ohio State football team has begun its quest for a second-straight national title, the wrestling team is right on its heels in pursuit of its own repeat.After guiding the squad to its first national title in school history last year, head coach Tom Ryan and assistant coach J Jaggers both agree that there’s one thing this year’s team cannot do: be complacent.“We’ve got a big bullseye on our back now,” Jaggers said. “We’re kind of new to the party, we’re the most recent people in the club.”Ryan said he had fears about the dangers of falling into traps that many defending championship teams can face.“The one thing you always fight is complacency,” Ryan added. “Sometimes it’s unnoticeable, so you really have to look closely.”Both coaches said that the loss of four-time national champion Logan Stieber will not be easy to overcome, but incoming freshmen might be able to fill the void.“With elite level programs, the names change but the tradition continues, I’m thinking,” Ryan said. “So, there will be a different guy in there, but if the system and the process is being followed, we’re in a position to win it again.”Ryan tabbed Ke-Shawn Hayes, Myles Martin and Kollin Moore as three freshmen to watch this season.“For us to be back on top and to stay on top, we’ll need lots of points from those guys,” Ryan said. “And they’re all capable of it.”Jaggers also singled out Hayes and Martin as wrestlers who could make some noise in the upcoming season.“They are 100 percent the guys that we thought they were going to be when we recruited them.” Jaggers said. “They have looked phenomenal, and they’re just into it. They seem to fit our culture and what we’re looking to do.”The wrestling team is set to take the mat for the first time of the 2015-2016 season on Sept. 29 with its annual Wrestle Offs event at St. John Arena, which will feature members of the squad competing against each other. read more

Public finances of Cyprus welloff

first_imgAccording new figures released from the Finance Ministry public finances for April 2011 are improved compared with April 2010. The Ministry notes that this result “complies with the government’s estimates on the course of the public finances which given the current figures will show gradual improvement throughout 2011.”The factors substantiating this improvement are the government’s continued effort for containing state expenditure, the expected acceleration of the economy’s growth rate, mainly due to the very good performance of tourism, which will boost state revenues in the second half of 2011, the fact that additional revenues from certain fiscal measures, such as the small levy on banking deposits have not started flowing in government reserves, as well as the implementation of the fiscal consolidation package announced in December 2010.Noting that the external environment remains fragile, the Finance Ministry assures that “the government is not complacent, but on the contrary will continue the effort for the fiscal consolidation of the public finances and the solution of the economy’s long-standing structural problems.” Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Remembering Ronnie Butler Bahamian music legend dies at 80

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, November 23, 2017 – Nassau – The Bahamas sings a solemn farewell to a music legend who early on Sunday (Nov 19) quietly exited life’s stage to take his rest.   Ronnie Butler, at the age of 80 years old is gone from us now… a music pioneer who framed some of the most dramatic and controversial times and traditions of The Bahamas in songs which have endured and created generations of fans.Ronnie Butler defied the odds, becoming what no one could have dreamed, not even him… starting out on the drums and evolving to being one of the most recognizable voices in The Bahamas.   Butler even outdid the doctor’s estimates by years ago beating prostate cancer and then surviving all of last week, despite the prognosis that he had only days to live when he took a turn for the worst last weekend.Opposition Leader, Phillip Brave Davis calls him a National Treasure.   In 2003, he was honoured through the Bahamas by the Queen of England with an Member of the British Empire or MBE and in 2014, Magnetic Media nominated him to be inducted into the Caribbean Hall of Fame; it happened that October and was announced in a ceremony in Kingston Jamaica.Here is a bit of our time with Ronnie Butler once we learned he had achieved the Caribbean Hall of Fame Induction, he was sweetly humbled and spoke candidly about his life’s work.Ronnie Butler also spoke of death, he was not afraid of it and at the time, at age 77, he counted himself fortunate to have lived so long.“I do believe that there has never been and there will probably never be another Bahamian that is as much loved as I am by my Bahamian people, and let me tell you, I love them back.” Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:last_img read more

Legislature resurrects Juneau Access Project sort of

first_imgA sign at the end of Glacier Highway in October 2016. The Juneau Access Improvements Project extension would begin here. (Photo by Andrew Kitchenman/KTOO)The Legislature passed a spending bill that funds several projects throughout Southeast Alaska.Listen nowFor decades, backers have pushed for a closer connection to Haines and Skagway, which have road links to the mainland highway system.Gov. Bill Walker halted the Juneau Access Project two years ago, saying it was among a group of large projects that Alaska could no longer afford.Juneau Sen. Dennis Egan, a Democrat, said that was a mistake.“Everybody you talk to in the Railbelt, especially, says, ‘Why can’t you drive to the capital?” Well, unlike Honolulu, we could make a way to drive to Juneau,” Egan said.Egan and other state senators put a little more than $20 million in the capital budget.It’s money Walker reallocated to other projects in the same general area.So rather than new spending, it’s shifted back.First Things First Foundation executive director Denny DeWitt points to a recent survey suggesting more than half of capital city residents support the project. Fewer than 40 percent of respondents opposed it.“It’s not the whole package, but it will continue moving the process through the decision-making process,” DeWitt said. “Hopefully what we’ve done in terms of looking at what Juneau wants in its transportation policies, hopefully it will have some impact on elected officials.”Opponents say the project would damage the ocean and shore where the approximately 50-mile road would be built.Travelers also would still have to take a short ferry ride to connect to the mainland road system.The governor could possibly veto the re-appropriation.Diesel generators in the Kake Powerhouse provide electricity to the town’s residents. The Gunnuk Creek hydroproject would replace about two-thirds of the power. (Photo courtesy Inside Passage Electric Authority)The Legislature’s capital budget funds a hydropower project near Kake, a small Southeast city dependent on diesel generators.Inside Passage Electrical Cooperative CEO Jodi Mitchell said it plans to build at Gunnuk Creek.“The project will actually provide an estimated two-thirds of the current Kake load,” she said. “At times, we’ll be able to turn the diesels off, which is kind of the gold standard for hydro.”Close to $4 million is appropriated to the project. The nonprofit also hopes to win a $3 million federal grant, Mitchell said, which would complete the funding.But if it doesn’t, the cooperative could take out a loan.Gunnuk Creek is the second of at least four hydroprojects planned for Hoonah, Kake and Angoon.Mitchell said each one will lower rates – and pollution – in all communities the cooperative serves.“I really am excited to find out when all these projects are done how much of our load is covered by renewable energy,” Mitchell said.Young salmon are raised in concrete raceways at the Crystal Lake Hatchery about 17 miles south of Petersburg. Funding in the capital budget will repair parts of the hatchery. (Alexis Kenyon/KFSK)Another project in the capital budget would upgrade the king and coho salmon hatchery at Crystal Lake, near Petersburg, which Southern Southeast Regional Aquaculture Association runs.Production Manager Bill Gass said in an interview earlier this year the $1.5 million will replace raceways that have been leaking for several years.“The danger now is that we’re afraid that this leak could turn into a catastrophic failure, at which point we could lose the whole thing,” Gass said. “It buys us continued time to operate.”The budget also includes $5 million to help dispose of lead-contaminated soil from an old junkyard in Wrangell. The state plans to store it locally, but leaders want it shipped south.Other Southeast Alaska capital project funding includes:Operating funds for Inter-Island Ferry Authority – $250,000Ketchikan cruise ship berths expansion – $3 millionKetchikan Houghtaling Elementary School roof – $2.4 millionKetchikan Pioneer Home structural upgrade – $1.25 millionCraig Middle School gym floor replacement – $418,000Craig Elementary School door and flooring replacement – $111,000Craig Middle School siding and windows – $119,000Wrangell junkyard contaminated site cleanup – $5 millionPetersburg Middle/High School entry renovation – $30,000Petersburg Middle/High School underground storage tank replacement -$115,000Crescent Boat Harbor improvements, Sitka – $5 millionHoonah central boiler replacement – $183,000Rebuild tender dock at Icy Strait Point tourist attraction in Hoonah to accommodate more ships – $1.1 millionJuneau Court Plaza Building exterior improvements – $1 millionAlaska Office Building roof – $900,000last_img read more

US Afghanistan launch air strikes as Taliban attack western city

first_imgMap of Afghanistan locating Farah, where Taliban fighters launched a major offensive during the night from Monday to Tuesday. AFPUS and Afghan aircraft Tuesday bombed Taliban positions in the western city of Farah after the insurgents launched a major attempt to capture the provincial capital, with fearful residents seeking shelter from explosions and gunfire.Special forces from Kandahar and Herat were rushed to the city to take part in the fighting, which residents said began around midnight, and was still ongoing as darkness began to fall Tuesday.It was the latest in a series of attempts by the Taliban in the past three years to capture urban centres. Afghan forces have been struggling to hold back the resurgent militant group since the withdrawal of NATO combat forces at the end of 2014.Afghan forces and NATO’s Resolute Support mission said that the government remained in control, but the Taliban also appeared confident, posting a flurry of social media updates throughout the day that purported to show their fighters in the city.Farah province, which borders Iran, has been the scene of intense fighting in recent years, and there have long been fears that the city is vulnerable.”The situation is very bad,” Satar Hussaini, a tribal elder in Farah, told AFP earlier.”Heavy fighting is going on and Taliban are in the city but the police headquarters and NDS (the Afghan intelligence agency) have not fallen to them,” he said.”NDS forces in their HQ are engaged in heavy clashes with the Taliban.”Another provincial council member, Dadullah Qani, confirmed Hussaini’s comments. Gunfire and explosions could be heard as he spoke to an AFP reporter by telephone.The noise has “filled the city”, said one resident who gave his name as Bilal, adding that he could see smoke rising from the direction of a building housing the NDS.NATO’s Resolute Support mission in Kabul tweeted that the Afghan army, supported by US airpower including A-10 Thunderbolts, was “on the offensive” and the city “remains under govt. control”.Defence ministry spokesman Mohammad Radmanish said US forces launched airstrikes, but added the majority have been carried out by the Afghan air force.”Pockets of the enemy resistance still remain… but our forces are battling the enemy with high morale,” he told AFP.With internet and mobile networks patchy, casualty figures were difficult to verify. Radmanish said four soldiers and “dozens” of insurgents had been killed.At least some militants have been hiding in private houses, making it difficult for Afghan forces to use heavy weapons, Farah governor Abdul Basir Salangi told Ariana News, adding: “But still we are taking back positions one by one.”Many radio and television channels in the province have stopped broadcasting, fearing for their employees’ lives, according to media watchdog Nai.The insurgents in a statement warned residents to remain in their homes and “stay calm”.Growing threatThe Taliban are stepping up their spring offensive, in an apparent rejection of a peace talks overture from the government.Farah is a poppy-growing province in an isolated region of Afghanistan.There are plans for a section of the multi-billion-dollar TAPI (Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India) gas pipeline to traverse it, a project with which the Taliban have pledged to cooperate.But it has been the scene of intense fighting in recent years. In 2017, insurgents tried three times to overrun the capital, according to the Afghanistan Analysts Network.As such, Tuesday’s offensive “should not have taken government forces off guard”, said military analyst and retired general Atiqullah Amarkhail.Amarkhail added that “even ordinary citizens were aware of the Taliban gradually taking over more areas and becoming a formidable force in the province”.He accused the government and military leadership of “turning a blind eye” until the insurgents actually entered the city.Afghan troops and police nationwide have struggled to cope with unrelenting militant attacks in recent years.According to US watchdog SIGAR, the strength of the Afghan security forces dropped by about 10 percent over the course of a year — falling to a total size of 296,409 personnel in the army and police forces as of January 31.When asked about the issue, US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said that Afghan forces are actually being bolstered in the most important area — special operations forces.Speaking earlier this month, he said this expansion was why the Taliban had not taken any district centres or provincial centres.The insurgents have tried several times to take provincial capitals in recent years, including Kunduz and Lashkar Gah, with the Afghan army deploying significant numbers of troops to hold those cities and push the militants out.Kunduz, Afghanistan’s fifth largest city and capital of the northern province of the same name, fell briefly to the Taliban in 2015.They along with the Islamic State group have also stepped up their attacks in the capital Kabul, which the UN says has in recent years become one of the country’s deadliest places for civilians.last_img read more

Delhi govt MCDs on collision course over taxing unauthorised colonies

first_imgWhile the Kejriwal government has issued an advisory putting a restraint on the collection of taxes from unauthorised colonies, the MCD has gone against the Delhi government and proposed the collection of property taxes from these colonies. Notably, there are as many as 243 unauthorised colonies in East MCD with over 400 colonies each in South and North MCDs.The Delhi government has asked the MCDs not to collect taxes from these unauthorised colonies till approval of the layout plan by them. In an advisory issued to the Commissioners of all three Municipal Corporations earlier, the Delhi government had directed that the property tax should be levied on unauthorised colonies from the date of approval of the layout plan of these colonies by the MCD. In other words, it means that property taxes should be collected from unauthorised colonies once they are duly regularised.  “On one side the government is pressurising Corporations to raise revenue while on the other, it is trying to curtail their rights. It is not possible to improve financial condition without collecting property and other type of taxes from unauthorised colonies,” Lata Gupta, Chairman of Standing Committee of East MCD said.Leader of the House of EDMC, Ram Narayan Dubey, pointed out that while the property tax is being collected from two lakh families, it should ideally be fetched from at least nine lakh families. He also added that while property tax is one of the main sources of revenue for the MCDs, enough attention is not being paid to ensure its collection.“Corporations are authorised to provide civic services in their areas. Apart from sanitation works, Corporations provide health and primary education, maintain parks and street lights along with other essential services and hence, they must be authorised for tax collection. “The government’s advisory will not only affect civic services in unauthorised areas but will result in huge losses of revenue to the ailing MCDs,” said MP Bhardwaj, Chairman of North MCD.last_img read more

News | May 28, 2009 Elekta Delivers Neuromag MEG System to German Brain Center May 28, 2009 – The University Hospital at Heinrich-Heine-University in Düsseldorf, Germany, has installed Elekta Neuromag, a device for noninvasive measurement of brain activity using Magnetoencephalography (MEG) technology. Completely non-invasive and painless, MEG is a powerful tool used for studying normal brain function, as well as brain disorders, such as epilepsy and autism.The University has been utilizing MEG technology for more than 12 years; however, recently upgraded their Elekta system, allowing researchers to record human brain activity better and more accurately than before.“After successfully using the old 122-channel Neuromag MEG system formore than 12 years, I’m extremely excited about the installation of thetechnologically-advanced 306-channel system,” says Professor AlfonsSchnitzler, M.D., Ph.D., head, Institute of Clinical Neuroscience andMedical Psychology and Director, Center for Movement Disorders andNeuromodulation, Heinrich-Heine-University.Researchers from various departments, such as neurology, clinicalneuroscience, neurosurgery, psychiatry, and experimental psychology willemploy MEG to track brain activity related to sensory, motor, cognitive and emotional functions, at high temporal and spatial resolution, in healthy human subjects, as well as patients with neurological and psychiatric disorders.“One particular focus,” said Dr. Schnitzler, “will be on the identification and modulation of oscillatory networks involved in normal brain function and their alterations in movement disorders and other neuropsychiatric diseases.”Dr. Schnitzler also notes that the Center for Movement Disorders andNeuromodulation at HHU runs a comprehensive program on Deep BrainStimulation (DBS). DBS delivers a constant, low electrical stimulation tothe brain through implanted electrodes and is used to help partiallyrestore normal movements in Parkinson’s Disease, tremor syndromes, dystonia and other movement disorders.“The new MEG system will allow us to record brain activity from patientswith implanted DBS devices and to study mechanisms of DBS and otherneuromodulatory interventions,” continues Schnitzler. “In addition to MEG, state-of-the-art MRI, PET, high-density EEG, and stereotactic TMSfacilities, as well as intracranial recordings are available to complementthe picture obtained from MEG measurements. This combination will provide a unique, non-invasive window through the human skull, offering exciting perspectives for clinical and cognitive neuroscientists and clinicians.”For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Neuro Imaging | July 05, 2019 Delta T1 Maps Provide Quantitative, Automated Solution to Assess Brain Tumor Burden Imaging Biometrics LLC (IB) a subsidiary of IQ-AI Ltd., is highlighting a recently published study in the American… read more Two brain metastases from primary lung cancer are contrast enhanced in the brain of a 61-year-old male.
