credit card holder womens Bank of Canada hikes interest rate on strong economy

The economy impressive run prompted the Bank of Canada to raise its trend setting interest rate Wednesday for the third time since last summer but looking ahead it warned of growing uncertainties about NAFTA.

The central bank pointed to unexpectedly solid economic numbers as key drivers behind its decision to hike the rate to 1.25 per cent, up from one per cent. The increase followed hikes in July and September.

While the central bank signalled more rate increases are likely over time, it noted the unknowns surrounding the future of the North American Free Trade Agreement and the potential negatives for Canada were casting a widening shadow over its outlook.

The bank said continued monetary policy accommodation will likely be needed to keep the economy operating close to its full potential.

Governing council, the bank added, would remain cautious when considering future hikes by assessing incoming data such as the economy sensitivity to the higher borrowing rates. The statement raised questions about how quickly the bank will raise the rate from here.

Royal Bank of Canada was first among Canada banks to respond to the rate hike, raising its prime lending rate by a quarter of a percentage point, to 3.45 per cent, effective Thursday. Other banks are expected to make similar moves.

For Wednesday move, the central bank couldn ignore the encouraging late 2017 data, even as it acknowledged the risks about NAFTA renegotiation.

Governor Stephen Poloz stressed during a news conference that the bank remains data dependent, although he conceded that a rate hike wasn a this time around because of the NAFTA talks.

course, the big cloud over the forecast as well as our discussion is, well, NAFTA, Poloz said.

immediate? How big? Lots of debate around that. Given those uncertainties, of course, the possibility of not moving (the rate) this time was in the air. particular, Poloz noted that research has argued the trade impacts of the deal demise might not have such a major impact on Canada. However, he stressed that the end of NAFTA would likely take a big bite out of investment in Canada.

can just relax and assume that it would be a small shock, he said.

In explaining the hike, the bank said in a statement that inflation was close to target and the economy was operating roughly at capacity. It also said consumption and residential investment had been stronger than anticipated, reflecting healthy employment growth.

investment has been increasing at a solid pace, and investment intentions remain positive, the bank said.

Moving forward, the bank predicted household spending and investment to gradually contribute less to economic growth, given the higher interest rates and stricter mortgage rules. It predicted Canada high levels of household debt would amplify the effects of higher interest rates on consumption.

Exports have been weaker than anticipated, but are still expected to contribute a larger share of Canada growth, the bank said. It also noted that government infrastructure spending has helped lift economic activity.

rate hike was a rear view mirror move, but the Bank of Canada hints that the view out the front window isn quite as sunny, CIBC chief economist Avery Shenfeld wrote in a research note to clients after the rate announcement.

share the Bank of Canada view that higher rates will be needed over time. But perhaps not as fast and furious as the market was starting to think. The bank statement put NAFTA uncertainties right up front. could encourage firms to redirect some of their business investments south of the border. tax changes thanks to increased demand.

The bank also released new economic projections Wednesday in its latest monetary policy report.

For 2017, it now predicting three per cent growth, as measured by real gross domestic product, compared with its 3.1 per cent prediction in October.

The bank slightly increased its predictions for 2018, up to 2.2 per cent from 2.1 per cent. It expects the economy to expand by 1.6 per cent in 2019, up from its previous call of 1.5 per cent.

The fourth quarter of 2017 and the first quarter of 2018 are each expected to see annualized growth of 2.5 per cent.

Poloz raised rates in July and September in response to a surprisingly strong economic run that began in late 2016. The hikes took back the two rate cuts he introduced in 2015 to help cushion, and stimulate, the economy from the collapse in oil prices.

Up until a couple of weeks ago, many forecasters still had doubts that Poloz would raise the rate Wednesday. However, two strong reports the December jobs data and the bank business outlook survey led many experts to change their calls.

When it comes to the public, the topic of oil by rail knows no governmental boundaries: It’s a heated issue and it doesn’t matter if it’s in Canada or the United States.

It’s emotional because it involves human health and safety. A 2013 Lac Megantic, Quebec, train derailment with the loss of 47 lives rocked people in both countries as they watched the devastation.

After that, it was a train derailment spilling oil into a West Virginia river. More recently, an oil train derailed in northern Ontario in March 2015.

Concerns about oil by rail, especially oil tankers hauling light, sweet Bakken crude, continue escalating across the two countries’ borders.

It’s controversial because it involves a fossil fuel a contentious issue in itself. When combining testy, complex environmental issues with human health and safety concerns the topic of oil by rail heightens to even greater levels across the 49th Parallel of the United States and Canadian border.

Both countries are re evaluating their safety standards for hauling crude oil by rail.

In July 2014, Transport Canada, the federal agency tasked with regulating the transportation industry in Canada, published final rules to build flammable liquid tank cars to higher standards, which includes thicker steel in tanks, half head shields to prevent end to end puncturing, and top fitting protection. However, the Canadian Transportation Safety Board (TSB) recommended additional, more stringent standards for transporting all flammable liquids.

Transport Canada then announced proposed tougher oil tank car standard in March 2015. Pipeline and Hazardous Material Safety Administration, and the Federal Railroad Administration for stricter standards across North America.

Following the TSB recommendations, Transport Canada proposed additional standards requiring tank cars hauling flammable liquids to be jacketed, thermally protected with thicker steel, full head shields, top fitting protection and new bottom outlet valves. If finalized, the regulations would require crude oil, ethanol and all other flammable liquids tankers to meet requirements by May 1, 2025, according to the Transport Canada website. braking requirements.”

While the derailments prompted both countries to re assess their regulations, David Thomson, Engineered Rail Solutions president in McHenry, Ill., said the key is looking back at what caused the derailments, the history of regulations, and the oil itself that dominates much of today’s oil by rail Bakken crude. and Canada. In looking at the historical railroad transportation of crude oil, regulations in both countries date back to the World War II era when heavy crude dominated in the industry, Thomson described. Both countries require testing and labeling of any hazardous material, as well as tanker car, engine, and track inspections. “That’s an industry standard,” he added. Baker Management, Inc., president, Regina, Saskatchewan.

Each physical tanker inspection at the originating terminal includes brakes, symbols identifying what the car is hauling, valves, wheels, etc. “Everything on that tanker,” Thomson continued. Locomotives are inspected every 90 days and preventative maintenance is done based on the car owner’s standards.

Railroad tracks are inspected visually daily. “They (track inspectors) actually ride and look at every inch of rail,” Thomson described. More crude oil on tracks puts more demand on the tracks and increased need for track inspections.

It may take 5 to 10 years to develop the advanced skills and experience to learn how to inspect tracks, Thomson said. “You get that by experience by working your way up through the seniority system at the railroads. New employees begin by being trained by fellow employees and all railroads have now instituted very comprehensive training programs. As the employee’s seniority increases, so do the jobs and experience they gain. From this trained pool, track inspectors are assigned.”

Despite current regulations and self imposed industry standards, “the industry has expressed that collectively they need to focus resources, and they have to a major extent, on doing a better job when hauling crude,” Thomson said, including additional inspections and mechanical maintenance. is a railroad industry organization focusing on testing, inspection, verification and environmental, consulting service, logistics and engineering and construction. A mid April CORE conference included sessions relating to new regulations, driving safety, and loading and unloading best practices. heavy crude. Chemically, light, sweet crude oil isn’t identical to heavy crude. There are various studies that don’t agree on the volatility of Bakken crude oil, Thomson said.

Alberta has longstanding been Canada’s largest oil producing province, Baker described, followed by Saskatchewan. With the Bakken Play stretching into southeastern Saskatchewan, Baker said the province now produces about 450,000 barrels per day (BPD), a mix of medium heavy crude from western Saskatchewan and medium light crude from southeastern Saskatchewan its portion of the Bakken.

Until the recent boom in hydraulic fracturing, both Alberta and Saskatchewan’s oil production historically outpaced North Dakota’s oil productivity, Baker continued, and the task of getting the oil from the wellhead to market has been in place for years in Canada. “There is a fairly mature pipeline (system) infrastructure in place in Saskatchewan,” he said. For example, Enbridge and the TransCanada pipelines have been in place for decades.

Baker estimates about 10 to 15 percent of Saskatchewan crude oil moves by rail compared to more than 60 percent of North Dakota’s crude moved by rail. and Canada, Baker explained, as the Bakken Play unleashed crude in North Dakota, Montana and southeastern Saskatchewan.

Saskatchewan’s Bakken oil play has experienced expediential production growth similar to North Dakota’s Bakken play, Baker said. “If you can’t move it by pipeline, you move it by rail,” he said. Trucking is the least palatable means of long hauling crude and is reserved for transportation from the well site to the pipeline or rail facility.

Currently TransCanada Pipeline Limited is evaluating the potential of re purposing an existing natural gas pipeline from western Canada to eastern Canada to move additional crude oil to refineries in Ontario and Quebec to help meet Canada’s area of highest market demand, Baker said. Baker said he was “comfortable” with Canada’s current regulations regarding crude oil transportation, but he added that it’s imperative for governments in both countries to work with both local and federal governments and the railroad industry as they evaluate regulations. “I think that oil by rail regulatory enforcement really needs to be the main factor,” he advised. “If you don’t have a strong enforcement team . it’s not going to work.”

Discount mulberry on sale uk Outlet Bakery known for apple fritters takes hit with Kwik Trip purchase of PDQ

mulberry online Bakery known for apple fritters takes hit with Kwik Trip purchase of PDQ

When Kwik Trip announced July 19 that it was purchasing the Middleton based chain of PDQ convenience stores, Davidson immediately knew he would have to find a way to make up for the loss of the 200 dozen donuts and apple fritters he sells to PDQ each day. Kwik Trip has its own production bakery and won’t need a wholesaler like JD’s.

“Wednesday (July 19) was a bad day. It was out of the blue and like being punched in the stomach,” Davidson said. “This is my life. This is all I know, all I want to know.”

Davidson is scrambling to add new accounts for his wholesale business, which serves up 5,000 bakery items a day to convenience stores, hotels, churches and other companies in Columbia, Dane, Jefferson and Rock counties. In addition to 23 PDQ stores, his customers include Stop Go, Kelley’s Market and CP Mart.

A regional giantKwik Trip has 337 stores in Wisconsin, 147 in Minnesota and 82 Kwik Stars in Iowa. The company does about $5 billion in gross sales annually, employs about 19,000 workers and has a massive food production and bakery operation in La Crosse, home to its 360,000 square foot distribution center, which serves all of the company’s stores. The vertical integration is what has helped Kwik Trip keep its prices low and draw thousands of customers to its stores each day.

“We have the dairy, the kitchens, our bakery, our own ice cream, our own ice plant, our own beverage plant,” Brad Clarkin, a warehouse superintendent at the center, told the La Crosse Tribune in 2013. “We have products produced today that will be on store shelves tonight.”

Kwik Trip hopes to finalize the purchase of PDQ in October and spend $30 million to $35 million to “re image” all of the 34 Wisconsin PDQ stores into Kwik Trip stores. The majority will get an interior facelift that includes new shelving, while the smaller ones will be remodeled. It hasn’t been determined if some of the smaller stores will be converted to Tobacco Outlet Plus Grocery stores, formerly known as Kwik Trip Express, a combination of a Tobacco Outlet and small Kwik Trip store but without the hot food offerings.

It’s also unclear what if any vendors serving PDQ will be retained, if some stores will be expanded and if the stores will allow customers to pay for gas in the store, not only at the pump as is the practice at PDQ.

“We just started the process of examining what work will be done with the properties, what vendors are currently supplying those stores and what store formats we will use,” said John McHugh, Kwik Trip’s director of corporate communications. “It will take several months for that process before we know the answers.”

The Madison strategy

The move by Kwik Trip to purchase PDQ solves a long lingering problem for a company that has struggled to maintain stores inside Madison’s city limits. For a time, Kwik Trip had a store near Verona Road and the Beltline, but it was sold years ago.

In 2014, Kwik Trip opened a 6,500 square foot convenience store without gas pumps in the ground level of Varsity Quarters, a six story, 129 bed apartment building at 1423 Monroe St. In December 2015, the company opened a $3.8 million, 7,160 square foot convenience store at 4825 American Parkway in the American Center business park, but was thwarted in its attempt to build a store on the site of a former Sentry grocery store on Cottage Grove Road.

While the PDQ purchase will let Kwik Trip blanket Madison, Fitchburg and Middleton, Kwik Trip has for years been a mainstay in Dane County suburbs farther from Madison. For example, there are three in Oregon and two each in Stoughton, Sun Prairie and Verona that have added to the challenges of independent operators who rely on businesses like JD’s to supply products.

‘It’s a hit’When John and Nancy Davidson, Davidson’s grandparents, purchased the bakery in 1985, it was producing about 27 dozen doughnuts a day. Their son Jeff Davidson Sr. purchased the business in 1996 and in short order added the PDQ store on Highway Q near Highway M in Middleton and the PDQ store on Northport Drive to the bakery’s delivery list.

Jeff Jr. has been working at the business since before he went to Lakeside Lutheran High School in Lake Mills. He began working full time while studying business management at Madison Area Technical College and has no plans on letting Kwik Trip get in his way of growing the family business he has been running for the past five years.

He plans to buy the company from his father, promote the name of the company more and is looking into packaging baked goods to sell at grocery stores, which would further diversify the business plan.

Discount mulberry rosemary bag Outlet Bake bar cookies packed with pecans

Discount mulberry outlet bicester village Outlet Bake bar cookies packed with pecans

These bar cookies are everything! They are loaded with texture, flavor and just enough salt to make them addictive. They are packed full of pecans, toffee bits, chopped white chocolate and dried coconut but the sprinkling of bourbon is what really takes them over the edge.

The flavors come together and deepen with the bourbon accenting and accentuating the buttery vanilla and caramel notes. This is a brownie for people who don like chocolate and that is how I came to make it.

My friend, David, was coming to dinner and I wanted to make a homemade sweet to go with his favorite store bought dulce de leche ice cream. Ordinarily, brownies of some sort might come to mind, but David is not a fan of chocolate so I thought about a blonde brownie filled with coconuthis favorite sweet ingredient, and pecans.

I added the Heath toffee bits because I have had great success with them. They melt into the batter as it bakes, leaving behind a more complex sweet caramel flavor that elevates a simple butter, flour and sugar cookie. Finally, I chopped up a bar of good white chocolate to add more texture and another flavor to the bar.

The beauty of these bars is that you can add a different nuttoasted hazelnuts or walnuts would be great, and different chocolatea combination of chocolates or even butterscotch morsels would work well.

I like to chop a high quality chocolate bar into pieces instead of using morsels because the flavor melds into the bar seamlessly where the morsels are sometimes too muchtoo sweet and too large which upsets the ratio of batter to add ins.

The only add ins that I wouldn change would be the toffee bits and the sweetened shredded coconut. The coconut makes the texture of the bar cookie so much moister and chewier while adding to the complex flavor. And,
Discount mulberry rosemary bag Outlet Bake bar cookies packed with pecans
don omit the bourbon. That addition makes all the difference in the world. In the same way that a splash of bourbon or wine enhances savory foods, these bar cookies are so much better for the bourbon.


Servings: Makes 20 22 bars

Start to finish: 60 minutes, plus additional cooling time

2 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 scant teaspoon fine grain sea salt

1 generous cup pecans halves

1/2pound unsalted butter, melted

1 cup packed light brown sugar

1 cup packed dark brown sugar

2 large eggs, mixed together

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 tablespoons of your favorite bourbon

2/3cup Heath toffee bits

1 generous cup sweetened dried coconut

1/2 4 ounce bar of real white chocolate, chopped

Chef Note: Use a 9 by 11 by 2 inch baking pan, the smaller version of the classic 9 by 13 pan. I think the 9 by 13 pan makes a bar cookie that is too thin, but if you use it, note that your cooking time will be shorter.

Preheat the oven to 350 F.

Whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. Toast pecans in a preheated oven for 10 15 minutes at 250 F. When cool, chop the pecans and set aside.

Melt butter and pour into a bowl. Add sugar, eggs and vanilla and mix well. Add Bourbon and mix again. Stir in the flour mixture and mix well, turning the batter several times to make sure that all the flour is incorporated.

Add the chopped pecans, the toffee bits,

coconut and white chocolate. Stir together with a blending fork to make sure that the add ins are equally incorporated.

Prepare your baking pan with non stick cooking spray. Spread batter into the pan by dropping equal spoonfuls all over the pan and joining them together by spreading the surface with an offset spatula.

On leur redonne aujourd’hui le[s] 1000 $ en baisse d’impt qu’on a pris dans leurs poches au cours des dernires annes. Les libraux ont t des taxeurs en srie au cours des cinq dernires annes. Au PQ, Nicolas Marceau, lui aussi porte parole en matire de finances, avance que Philippe Couillard prend les Qubcois pour des idiots . On assiste aujourd’hui au lancement de la campagne lectorale librale, une campagne finance par l’argent des Qubcois et non l’argent du parti, a dit M. Marceau. Les investissements qui sont annoncs aujourd’hui dans nos services publics ne sont pas la hauteur des dgts causs par l’austrit des dernires annes. Le gouvernement a choisi d’utiliser la marge de manuvre qu’il s’est constitue par la souffrance des Qubcois pour rduire l’impt des particuliers. Pour Gabriel Nadeau Dubois, porte parole de Qubec solidaire, la somme de 278 $ en baisse d’impt des particuliers est une bien faible rcompense pour trois ans de coupes dans les services la population. Est ce que 11 $ par chque de paye, a vaut des coles en ruine? Depuis leur lection, les libraux ont pris de l’argent dans les coles et les CHSLD, poursuit le dput. Aujourd’hui, ils annoncent qu’ils en rinvestissent la moiti et que l’autre moiti s’en va en baisse d’impt. C’est de l’incomptence.

mulberry purse price Bainbridge company banking on the health value of vitamin D

BAINBRIDGE ISLAND, Wash. Perhaps the best pitch for Solius might be a glance to the sky on one of the Pacific Northwest’s sullen, drizzly, January mornings.

Over the last few years the Bainbridge startup has been quietly working on a concept close to the hearts of many around Puget Sound come the region’s dreary winter months: finding a way to get a healthy dose of vitamin D.

“Science shows us that without it we get more sickness, more disease, athletes have more injuries and the people that we love, they die earlier,” Solius CEO Rick Hennessey said. Vitamin D deficiency is a global problem affecting 2.5 billion people, according to the company.

Solius’ proposal? Set aside supplements, which aren’t always effective, step out of the sun’s harmful rays, Hennessey said, and spend a few minutes a month inside one of the company’s treatment pods, which shine an isolated spectrum of light designed to promote production of vitamin D.

Solius uses a complex system of filters and optics to shine a 4 nanometer spectrum of UVB spectrum and nearly eliminate harmful UVA rays, according to the company. Solius claims that in less than 5 minutes, it can help to produce over 10 times more vitamin D than an hour of midday summer sunlight.

The result: “safe sun,” Hennessey said.

“We produce in our studies about 10 times the amount of vitamin D than the sun, but with a thousand times less energy,” he said. “It’s built to be extremely effective and safe.”

Company representatives are quick to note that their machine hasn’t yet been approved as a medical device by the Food and Drug Administration, but in the early testing they’ve done at Solius, they’ve seen promising results, they said.

“Humans need some very simple things: fresh air, clean water, proper nutrition and sunlight,” Hennessey said. “If you take any one of those things away or degradate them in any way, humans suffer, they get sicker, they get more disease, they get more cancer, they get more depression, they get more injuries, the list goes on and on. We feel like we’re a big part of some core components.”

To market At this point, the only way to try one of the devices is to sign up for the company’s current clinical trial on Bainbridge Island. Over the course of a three month period, enrollees will undergo about 10 treatments and will have blood drawn before and after the trial to show the device’s impact on their body, Solius Chief Revenue Officer Kyle Diercks said. The trial will cost $50 per month, he said.

Within the next few weeks, the company plans to go to market at its first location in Canada, a compounding pharmacy in Vancouver. After FDA approvals, the company plans to go to market throughout the United States and eventually internationally.

The company doesn’t plan to sell the devices, Diercks said. It plans to build and own them in common locations: the gym, at a pharmacy, at your corporate office and locations where one can stop in on a lunch break for a few minutes. Consumers will set up a time and customize their experience on a smartphone app and will be charged a monthly fee to use the device, likely three to four times a month.

“We take this device to a location that would accessible to the public, in a place they can get to quickly, in an environment they are comfortable with, in an affordable way,” Diercks said.

The next Avalara? Tucked away in its offices in the Island Gateway development off state Route 305, the startup’s small staff has been steering the company into the sunlight as it prepares to hit the market with its machines.

The company is looking to follow closely in the footsteps of Bainbridge’s last big corporate success story: tax software firm Avalara, which formerly maintained its corporate headquarters in the same office development where Solius has been based since the end of 2015.

As it expands, Solius plans to take over Avalara office space as the tax company completes its move to Seattle. It was first incorporated in 2011 and was primarily research and development oriented before it began moving toward production in 2013, Solius Chief Financial Officer Bob Wise said.

“If you look at Avalara and their growth and to where they’re going to be, they probably are going to be a unicorn when they go public, a billion dollar market cap, that wouldn’t surprise me,” Wise said.

“We don’t see any reason why we can’t do that too,” he said, glancing out an office window on a gray winter morning, “particularly on a day like this, you can see the need.”

Solius has aggressive plans for growth. While it’s relatively small now 12 employees and a handful of almost full time consultants Solius plans to double its headcount in 2018 and double again the year after, Wise said.

“We’re looking to be a multi hundred , million , if not billion dollar company headquartered here,” he said.

Unlike Avalara, the company plans to stay on Bainbridge as it grows. Wise sees Solius maintaining a corporate and technical headquarters on the island and imagines the manufacturing and assembly side of the company’s work happening somewhere in Kitsap County.

“We’re looking to grow, and we’re looking to grow in Kitsap County,” he said. “We’re a high tech firm, and we think we have an incredible base to recruit from here.”

Future of health care?Beyond vitamin D production, the company sees a future in which its devices could be used to treat a variety of autoimmune diseases, like psoriasis and eczema, or conditions like acne, Hennessey said.

Hennessey likens the company’s future to being the “Starbucks of health care,” where people need and want to come back “because it makes you feel good,” he said.

With a variety of possible applications, Hennessey said he sees Solius turning into a big business: “If we’re successful at this business, that means we’ve helped a lot of people. That’s something we can feel pretty good about.”
