News / US container imports fall 10% in June, but west coast ports pull traffic back

first_img By Mike Wackett 16/07/2020 The port of Charleston saw a 19% volume drop on June In a reversal of the trend of the past year, US west coast ports fared better in comparison with their east and Gulf coast gateway rivals last month, recording a smaller decline in container imports.According to the latest monthly statistics compiled by New York-based consultancy Blue Alpha Capital, container imports into the top ten US ports declined by 10.2% in June, compared with the same month of last year, to 1.5m teu.Meanwhile, June’s recently released 2020 retail figures show sales were up 7.5%, month on month.The largest container port in the US, Los Angeles, saw a decline of 6.8% in imports, to 369,189 teu, while neighbouring Long Beach was down 9.3%, to 300,714 teu.Despite Oakland seeing an improvement of 1.9%, to 82,461 teu, Seattle/Tacoma saw imports slump by 17% to 101,835 teu and overall there was an 8.3% drop in imports at west coast ports in June, for a total of 854,202 teu.However, the US Atlantic and Gulf coast ports saw a 12.5% slump in imports, to 677,895 teu, reversing the long-term migration of services from west coast hubs. The worst performers were Charleston, down 18.9% to 69,777 teu, and Houston, down 17.4% to 86,903 teu.The year-on-year 10.2% decline in June imports was an improvement on the 16.7% decrease in May, but worse than April’s 7.5% decline.Blue Alpha Capital founder and author of the report John McCown said he anticipated any recovery in volumes was “temporary”, arguing that there were a number of metrics that pointed to the decline in imports “moving back to May’s range in the months ahead”.He added: “Nobody can say with any certainty when year-on-year declines will stop and container volumes will begin to recover.”Meanwhile, Port of Los Angeles executive director Gene Seroka yesterday advised that the total number of containers moved across the hub’s terminals in June was down 9.6%, year on year, to 691,475 teu.But he said: “I will take this number in the midst of an unsettled trade war and the global pandemic,” and added that “exports continued to take a beating”, down 21.3% in June to 109,586 teu.However, there was some reason for optimism in the number of empty containers shipped back to Asia: down a more modest 7.2% last month, compared with a year-to-date reduction of 22.4%.“This means we are starting to see an evacuation of empties to prepare for a modest uptick in imports,” said Mr Seroka.But he said the “double hit of the trade policy and the pandemic” would see container throughput shrink to “levels of cargo volume not seen since the great recession”.Mr Seroka’s stark prediction is for a slump of 15% in the number of containers handled at the port this year, compared with 2019, to an estimated 7.9m teu.last_img read more

This medical center looks and feels like an Apple Store

first_img “It can’t hurt to have a nice facility, but there are some people who can’t afford to get in the door.” Johnson said the design might improve patients’ outcomes as well, since they may bring a more positive attitude to their chemo treatments.Some design experts aren’t so sure.George J. Mann, a Texas A&M University architecture professor specializing in health care design, said he is skeptical of the trend toward expensive, amenity-filled hospitals, and theories about how design can promote healing.For 25 years, health care companies have tried to compete in multi-hospital markets by building more facilities with private rooms, open corridors, fancy lobby furniture, and enormous atriums that cost a lot to heat and cool, Mann said. Those costs are passed down to patients.“Sometimes it’s implied that the amenities will help them get better, but I don’t think so,” said Mann, who has not yet studied the Minnesota facility. “It can’t hurt to have a nice facility, but there are some people who can’t afford to get in the door.”Johnson said she is confident that this particular design won’t suffer the same flaws. The university, she said, will analyze metrics from patient and staff badges and satisfaction surveys, and will publish results in academic journals.“We really feel like this will lower the cost of health care,” she said, by increasing efficiency and patient satisfaction, and diminishing the need to return to the center for care. “The data will be really important.” The University of Minnesota Health Clinics and Surgery Center in Minneapolis was inspired by the Apple Store.

But the bet is that the approach will increase patient satisfaction and staff efficiency, all with a design footprint that’s smaller than other academic medical centers with similar patient loads and staffing levels.The smaller footprint has allowed the university to save $25 million in construction costs, Johnson said, with more savings in lease payments and maintenance.The facility isn’t tiny, though. The five-story, 342,000-square-foot building houses an inpatient surgical center and several adult clinics, and can serve more than 2,000 patients per day.Unlike at other academic medical institutions, nobody at the center gets an office. The center’s design firm, Boston-based architectural firm CannonDesign, said that research shows private doctors’ offices are literally a waste of space, sitting empty 90 percent of the time.Instead, staff members are given desks along broad banks of windows upstairs, conference rooms, and a three-story open-air staff lounge space. (Patient-care rooms are clustered at the building’s center.) Office materials are designed to deaden sound, and the HVAC system infuses the area with white noise for privacy.“We’re asking staff to make quite a huge culture shift,” Johnson said.David J. Allison, the director of Clemson University’s Graduate Studies in Architecture and Health program, said the decision to forgo dedicated office space is in keeping with trends seen in commercial buildings, where the notion of “hoteling” means that no one has permanent working spaces.The approach can work especially well in a health care environment, he said, given that it compels medical team members to interact more frequently and directly.“More and more care is being delivered by collaborative teams that need to work in concert,” he said. “That’s going to be the future.”Patients have had to reorient themselves, too, including in ways that might test their comfort levels.When they arrive at the clinic, they are given badges embedded with wireless technology that tracks the their movements through the facility, as well as how long they’ve been waiting in any given room. If the system detects that a patient has been alone in a room for 10 minutes, staff members receive an automated alert, directing them to check in.Staff members will also get the badges, so they can find each other more quickly.Other patient-centric design touches include chemotherapy stations. Whereas some chemo rooms are open-air expanses filled with recliners, the chemotherapy clinic at the new facility includes a handful of infusion bays with wall panels that can slide closed for privacy or open for socializing. Steve Jobs may have changed technology forever but, with the design of his iconic Apple Stores, he also left his mark on the design of physical spaces.Now his legacy is being felt in an unlikely place: a hospital.The University of Minnesota Health Clinics and Surgery Center in Minneapolis, which opened earlier this year, was inspired by the Apple Store, designed to be more experience than ambulatory site.advertisement The similarities are obvious: No lines. No intake desks with authority figures. Instead, visitors find concierges at the door and a wide-open floor plan with walls of glass. Patients can find appointment information online, in advance, to save time and hassle, as they would before checking in at an airport.“We took a really big risk here,” Mary Johnson, the organization’s chief operating officer, told STAT.advertisement By Bob Tedeschi April 27, 2016 Reprints In Kendall Square, architects compete to redefine the laboratory George J.

Lee that has represented Virginia in the U.S. Capitol for 111 years has been removed.Virginia Gov.

Henry hasn’t taken charge of a Laois game in almost two years – his last game involving the county was the 2-18 to 0-14 loss to Clare in the 2017 All Ireland Qualifiers.He also reffed that season’s 1-13 to 0-13 league win over Longford. Incidentally, Henry sent off a Laois player in both of those games – John O’Loughlin against Clare and Evan O’Carroll against Longford. Both were for second yellow cards but the Laois players will want to keep on his good side.Henry’s biggest recent game was the Round 6 Division 1 game between Dublin and Tyrone.Ticket detailsTickets for Saturday’s game in Croke Park – which also includes the All Ireland ‘A’ and ‘B’ football colleges finals – are priced at €20 for adults for €5 for juvenile. They can be purchased from the GAA website here.

Picture: SportsfileLeague final memory – Kerry beat Laois in Division 2 final in 2002The league was a much different format back in 2002 than it is now with a 16-team Division 1 and a 16-team Division 2, both split into equal-strength eight-team groups.Laois were in Division 2 but were in good company – with Kerry and Meath, All Ireland champions in 2000 and 1999 respectively – as well as eventual 2002 champions Armagh.Laois beat Meath in Navan early on in the competition but the two teams topped the group with 11 points each, Laois losing away to Wexford and drawing with Tipperary.Laois then beat Armagh in the semi-final in Longford to qualify for a final meeting with Kerry in the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick.On a horrible day, Laois were beaten 1-9 to 1-5, Kerry’s goal – as well as two points from play – coming from Colm Cooper on his first senior start. Kerry’s Colm Cooper goes past the challenge of Laois defenders Tom Kelly and Pauraic Leonard, left, on his way to scoring his sides only goal in the 2002 Allianz League Division 2 Final“Kerry collect yet another title with little fanfare,” was the Irish Independent headline the next day. Tom O’Riordan’s report described the game as “dour and unattractive”.“However, the name on everyone’s lips was that of 18-year-old Colm Cooper,” wrote O’Riordan. The young man from Killarney … seems to have a great future in the game as he displayed many of the qualities necessary to make it to the top.”Laois would later lose to Offaly in the Leinster championship and then Meath in the All Ireland qualifiers, a loss that would bring an end to Colm Browne’s second term as manager.Kerry went all the way to the All Ireland final, where they lost a famous clash to an Armagh side that Laois had beaten in the spring.The teams in that 2002 Division 2 final were:LAOIS: Fergal Byron; Pauric Leonard, Tom Kelly, Paul McDonald; Derek Conroy, Kevin Fitzpatrick, Damien Ryan; Noel Garvan, Padraig Clancy; Ian Fitzgerald, Darragh McEvoy, Michael Lawlor; Beano McDonald, Greg Ramsbottom, Chris Conway.

B.C. budget tackles housing crisis

first_img Keywords British Columbia Facebook LinkedIn Twitter Dirk Meissner British Columbia moved to ease the province’s housing crisis Tuesday with a budget that introduces a new tax on property speculators, higher taxes on foreign homebuyers and plans to create 114,000 affordable housing units over the next decade.Finance Minister Carole James said the tax measures are part of the government’s aim to improve housing affordability in markets where some seniors are forced to live in their vehicles and young professionals are refusing to take jobs in B.C. because they can’t find a place to live. British Columbia provincial parliament building, Victoria, BC jenifoto/123RF Related news B.C. economy forecast to remain strong through 2020 B.C. budget forecasts three years of billion-dollar deficits “We can’t fix the housing crisis overnight but we can act,” James said. “A budget is more than revenue and expenses. A budget is about people. It’s about the kind of communities we want and the kind of future we want.”But the Opposition Liberals said the budget should raise warning signs about the sustainability of the government’s spending spree.“They are literally driving up taxation,” said finance critic Shirley Bond. “They are spending, taxing and spending some more.”The speculation tax will take effect later this year, targeting foreign and domestic buyers who do not pay B.C. income tax in Metro Vancouver, the Fraser Valley, the Victoria area, Nanaimo Regional District, Kelowna and West Kelowna.“Our goal is fairness,” James said. “This is a major step to end speculation in our marketplace. We’re asking those who benefited from high prices to give a little bit back.”The 15% tax on foreign buyers will jump to 20% on Wednesday and will be expanded beyond Metro Vancouver to include much of southern Vancouver Island, the central Okanagan and the Fraser Valley.The amount collected by the province in taxes is rising in the budget and it is forecast to continue for the next two years, jumping from $28.2 billion in the last fiscal year to $35.1 billion in 2020-21.James defended the new and increased taxes as the right path to restore affordability.Easing the financial pinch felt by families was a recurring theme in the first full budget brought in by the NDP since it came to power last summer.“We live in a province rich in people, resources, natural beauty and opportunities,” James said in her budget speech. “Yet those opportunities have become further and further out of reach for many.”The government is also planning to invest more than $1 billion in child care, a step James described as historic for B.C. The money will help create more than 22,000 spaces and offer monthly benefits of $1,250 to 86,000 families.Students and young families are some of the budget’s primary beneficiaries, said Prof. Paul Kershaw of the University of British Columbia’s school of population.People will celebrate that child care expenses no longer amount to rent or mortgage-sized payments, he said.“We seem to be a province that is saying we’re going to take more and more tools available to us to ensure that home prices no longer continue to skyrocket.”But Jock Finlayson, vice-president of the B.C. Business Council, said on the housing side, the government is more focused on relaxing demand pressures than offering more immediate help to municipalities and developers to increase supply.“If you’re worried about pricing and affordability there is a supply side to the market to look at,” he said. “It’s not all about demand. That’s kind of missing.”B.C.’s housing crisis was a major issue in last year’s provincial election that saw the New Democrats form a minority government with the backing of the three-member Green caucus, ending the Liberals’ grip on power after 16 years in what was largely seen as a rebuke of its tight-fisted fiscal management that neglected spending on social programs.James said her budget reflects the outcome of the election.“It’s time for a different approach,” she said. “It’s time everyone in our province is part of our prosperity.”The government will also eliminate medical services premiums on Jan. 1, 2020, saving individuals up to $900 annually and families $1,800. It will be replaced with a new payroll tax on employers, although those with payrolls under $500,000 will be exempt.James said despite a shortfall of more than $1 billion at the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia and the high cost of fighting last year’s wildfires, the budget is forecast to have a surplus of $219 million for 2018-19.Economic growth is forecast at 2.3% this year, and the jobless rate of 5.1% last year was the lowest in Canada.“The budget is balanced in its approach and it’s fiscally balanced,” James said. “It makes a historic investment to take care of children. It takes bold steps to tackle the housing crisis.”Green Leader Andrew Weaver said his caucus will support the budget, although he thought the measures on housing could have gone farther. He previously called for an outright ban on foreign property ownership.Weaver said he was pleased NDP election promises to bring in $10-a-day child care and a $400 annual renters rebate were absent from the budget. He dismissed them as “slogans.”“Somebody who’s earning $2 million a year clearly doesn’t need to pay $10 for child care,” he said.
