Naguib Sawiris says Turkey’s Erdogan wants to be ‘new Ottoman emperor’

first_imgErdogan over the summer criticized Egypt for supporting forces in Libya that are opposed to the government in Tripoli, which is supported by Turkey in the ongoing civil war there.Asked for comment, Turkey’s foreign ministry referred CNBC to the nearest Turkish embassy. Murat Lütem, Turkey’s ambassador to Singapore, said in response to Sawiris’ criticisms that “Turkish foreign policy is directed at preserving and building peace and stability and protecting our national interests in line with international law. President Erdoğan leads our Nation accordingly and claims to the contrary are baseless.” Sawiris said that Erdogan “is causing a very big mess in the region, in addition to what he’s doing with explorations in the Mediterranean and trying to steal the Greek oil and gas.” – Advertisement – Egyptian billionaire Naguib Sawiris leveled strongly worded criticism at Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan this week, accusing the leader of making a “very big mess” in the Middle East.“We have Mr. Erdogan’s new ambitions to become the new Ottoman emperor of the region,” he told CNBC’s Hadley Gamble on Tuesday, referring to the former empire that dominated much of the Middle East and Europe until the early 20th Century. “He has his hands full in Syria, in Libya, in Iraq and now in Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh.”- Advertisement – I’m actually more optimistic because you can say anything about Biden … but one thing is for sure, he has more experience than (President) Donald Trump in world affairs.- Advertisement – – Advertisement – Turkey and Greece are at loggerheads over competing claims to energy reserves in contested Eastern Mediterranean waters. Turkey’s foreign ministry said in August that it will not back down from defending its “rights” in the region.President-elect BidenSawiris, the chairman and CEO of Orascom Investment Holding, added that the United States has “practically vanished” from the region, while Russia, Turkey and Iran have become more involved in local conflicts. “That is not good for the sake of the Middle East,” he said.Under President Donald Trump, the U.S. has reduced the number of troops in the region but brokered important deals such as the normalization of ties between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. Sawiris said he sees the Trump administration as “totally biased” in favor of Israel.Those comments came in response to a question about what President-elect Joe Biden means for Turkey.“I’m actually more optimistic because you can say anything about Biden … but one thing is for sure, he has more experience than Donald Trump in world affairs,” he said, adding that Biden is “well aware of all the ins and outs of the Middle East.” Naguib SawirisEgyptian billionairelast_img read more

Don’t limit options for business park

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionFor the better part of 20 years, every time I traveled Route 5S between Main Street and Riverside Drive, I would go past the sign for the “Glen Canalview Business Park.”Some have lately been referring to this as an “industrial park.” That limits our park. “Industrial” makes it sound like good commercial businesses like a modern office building, a software firm, a fulfillment center, or a call center would be excluded. That’s the wrong impression. Even a small office building could house dozens of good-paying jobs and support many times that number of jobs in Glen, Fonda, Fultonville and nearby communities. The term “Business Park” includes industrial components, but opens the door to so many other possibilities.The county invested significant funds and hopes in the park, assuring it had the right items in place, including high-speed internet.Businesses highly dependent upon communications, such as a call center, insurance company or other commercial enterprise, tend to rely more heavily on modern communications than similarly sized industrial facilities.Small, innovative commercial establishments seem to be the best fit for the Glen Business Park. Let’s not sell ourselves short. Let’s be sure that the names we use describe our best hopes for our community. The name of the place is “Glen Canalview Business Park.” That’s the name that all of us have come to know for our park. If a shortcut must be used, it should be “Business Park.”Names matter — let’s use the right one and make the right decisions.Steve HelminFultonvilleMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristslast_img read more

Brexit talks move to London after tough week in Brussels

first_imgLitany of disputes Brussels has shrugged off Johnson’s repeated threats to walk away and accept very distant relations with the bloc that complicated trade but gave Britain broader independence.The differences between the sides remain vast.London refuses to accept jurisdiction over trade disputes by the European Court of Justice and wants a much bigger part of fishing waters it now shares with the bloc.A separate dispute concerns the degree to which Britain must follow EU rules on state aid to important economic sectors as well as labor and environmental rules.London argues that the entire point of leaving the bloc was to give Britain a bigger say over its own affairs.Brussels counters that Britain cannot expect to undercut the bloc on price through looser standards and still expect a favorable trade deal.The talks in London are being held in an intensified format that follows video conference discussion held at the European height of the coronavirus crisis. London and Brussels are supposed to agree new trade terms in the meantime that prevent ties from reverting to the minimum standards — and accompanying high tariffs and quotas — of the World Trade Organization.British businesses fear that possibility and want Prime Minister Boris Johnson to give them guidance as soon as possible about whether a trade deal is feasible or not.This would give them a chance to trigger costly contingency planning aimed at disrupting trade and business activity as little as possible.But EU officials feel much less pressure to strike a quick agreement and are suggesting that one could still be done by late October. Britain’s separation talks with the European Union resume Monday with few signs of compromise on a new trade agreement and time running out to avoid a messy split.London will host EU negotiator Michel Barnier after a round of face-to-face talks ended a day early last week in Brussels because of deep divides in the sides’ approach.Barnier said after ending the negotiations last Thursday that “serious divergences remain”. His UK counterpart David Frost said there were “significant differences” that meant the sides were still searching for basic “principles underlying an agreement”.And German Chancellor Angela Merkel said upon taking over help of the EU’s rotating presidency Wednesday that both her country and the 27-nation bloc “should prepare for the case that an agreement is not reached”.Britain followed through on the results of a 2016 EU membership referendum and officially pulled out of the bloc in January after nearly half a century.But a standstill transition period that ends on December 31 allows the UK to effectively function as if it were still a member.

Swiss public split over pension reform as referendum looms

first_imgMeanwhile, Swiss pension funds have been trying to convince their members to vote ‘yes’ in the referendum to help ease their burden with the minimum conversion rate, which the funds have said is too high in relation to country’s ultra-low interest rate.“A ‘no’ vote would be like playing with fire”AsipMost pension funds have backed the campaign by pension fund association Asip in favour of the reform. However, some have gone public with their own requests for support.One of them is the CHF22bn (€19.3bn) Migros Pensionskasse (MPK), the pension fund for the Migros supermarket chain, one of the country’s largest employers.MPK’s managing director Christoph Ryter, former head of Asip, told Swiss media the reform was “only a small step in the right direction”.“But it is a necessary evolutionary adjustment,” he said.Similarly, the CHF1.2bn Stiftung Abendrot said the reform was “a step in the right direction”, especially for re-establishing fairness in the second pillar.“On average, today’s pensioners are getting paid out more than the actual return on their contributions,” the multi-employer pension fund noted in a press release.This “leads to a redistribution at the expense of active employees”, it added.Like Migros, other major Swiss employers have supported a ‘yes’ vote, including pharmaeuticals company Roche and insurers AXA and Winterthur.However, most employer associations and representatives from the economic sector have opposed the reform proposals, mainly because of the planned VAT increase.One criticism of the reform package has been that it contained a range of proposals that few people would want to support as a whole.However, the pension fund association Asip has renewed a request for people to accept the reform package as a whole to ensure elements such as the lower conversion rate are implemented.“A ‘no’ vote would be like playing with fire,” Asip warned. The Swiss electorate is evenly split between supporting and opposing the pension reform package Altersvorsorge 2020 (AV2020), according to several polls published in Swiss media over the past week.Two seperate polls taken earlier this month indicated support for two measures by a narrow margin, with just over 50% in favour or “more likely to vote yes”.A referendum on the reform is scheduled for 24 September, when the public will be asked two questions. The first is whether to increase VAT to finance the first-pillar AHV fund. The second is on the reform package including, among other things, a lower conversion rate, later retirement for women and a one-off pension increase for the first pillar.If one of the two proposals in the referendum is rejected, the other fails as well as the law connects them.last_img read more

MTV Video Music Awards: Pushing boundaries to celebrate music

first_imgThe Weeknd kicked off the festivities with a performance of his hit single “Blinding Lights,” which later won him Video of the Year. As he belted the lyrics to the song from the top of Edge at Hudson Yards, viewers could see the New York City skyline’s backdrop. Surrounded by flashing lights, helicopters and fireworks, MTV really pushed the boundaries for this event.  Although the night was filled with excitement and happiness, The Weeknd shared some of the heartache felt this year. In his acceptance speeches, the singer said that it’s hard to celebrate the night and asked for justice for Breonna Taylor and Jacob Blake. Likewise, before the show’s opening, Keke Palmer shared some thoughtful words about the loss of actor Chadwick Boseman. “We dedicate tonight’s show to a man whose spirit touched so many,” Palmer said. “He is a true hero, not just on screen but in everything he did. His impact lives forever.” Filled with a blast of international music, Maluma, CNCO and BTS took to the stage. As South Korean pop phenomenon BTS performed its new hit “Dynamite,” the Latinx performers CNCO and Maluma did so on a drive-in stage in Brooklyn.  Television personality and actress Keke Palmer was the perfect host for a celebration that honored life, music and speaking up against injustice, mixing her experience, activism and comedic persona. As the first Black woman to host the VMAs, Palmer addressed the Black Lives Matter movement’s power, saying, “We’ve seen our generation step up, take to the streets and make sure our voices will be heard.” The VMAs have always stood as a celebration of music. Many of the performers and nominees were popular on TikTok over the summer. DaBaby’s “Rockstar,” Doja Cat’s “Say So” and Megan Thee Stallion’s “Savage” were all hits of the night, with Doja Cat and Megan Thee Stallion bringing awards home for Best New Artist and Best Hip-Hop, respectively.  Although there was no recipient for the Video Vanguard Award this year, MTV introduced the first-ever inaugural MTV Tricon Award to the star of the night: Lady Gaga, a singer, actress, dancer, designer and activist. MTV explained that the award “is in recognition of her talents as a global music superstar, award-winning actor and undisputed fashion icon.” Besides being the queen of the night, Gaga stood out as she was one of the only artists to wear a mask at all times — even when singing and dancing throughout her performance of songs from “Chromatica,” which included her collaboration with Ariana Grande, “Rain On Me.” Accustomed to using awards shows for major fashion statements, Gaga continued to serve unique looks and incorporate masks within them. Some covered the whole face, others involved horns, and for her performance, it seems like she had created an electronic system within the mask that would better enable her to sing. “I might sound like a broken record, but wear a mask. It’s a sign of respect,” Gaga said. For each acceptance, Best Collaboration (“Rain On Me” ft. Ariana Grande), Song of the Year (“Rain on Me” ft. Ariana Grande) and Artist of Year, Lady Gaga continuously thanked her fans and urged them to never give up on their dreams. “I want nothing more than to be your artist in 2020,” she remarked in one of her speeches.center_img Photo from @vmas on Twitter Palmer also discussed the importance of speaking out against injustice and using music’s power to heal. Her speech was followed by cheers from what sounded like a live audience. Still, viewers never saw whether it was a group of fans behind the cameras or if their cheers were digitally added. Behind the host, an enormous digital stage was designed to make the experience feel as realistic as possible — there were even simulations of fans standing and cheering in booths.  A buzz of anticipation and expectation surrounding this year’s MTV Video Music Awards was felt by fans behind their screens everywhere. One of the most-awaited nights in music took place Sunday, and this year it aimed for something even more spectacular than ever before: The VMAs treated audiences to a full-scale awards show in the middle of a pandemic. Live performances took place on top of New York skyscrapers, at drive-in theatres in Brooklyn and some were even broadcast live from across the world. And it was beautiful.  Other great performances of the night included Miley Cyrus, the Black Eyed Peas and DaBaby. Cyrus and the Black Eyed Peas surprised audiences by adding a little nostalgia to their performances. Cyrus rode a glittery disco ball, which reminisces her “Wrecking Ball” era and the Black Eyed Peas performed their 2009 hit “I Gotta Feeling.” Following rumors of possible surprise appearances, viewers were disappointed by the absence of artists such as Harry Styles, Dua Lipa and Justin Bieber (although Bieber did receive Best Music Video From Home for “Stuck With U” ft. Ariana Grande).  The MTV VMAs achieved the impossible and conducted a massive production while following health and safety guidelines. To introduce categories, presenters Bella Hadid, Joey King, Drew Barrymore, Jaden Smith and many others stood on stage alone and moved aside when the winners would give their speeches. It is speculated, however, that some of these introductions were pre-recorded and that the event was not an entirely live performance. It was clear to see the importance of social distancing on stage and backstage. In between breaks, viewers were shown a significantly small number of crew members shuffling between acts, always wearing face coverings.  Sunday night was a success, not only bringing joy to people’s homes but also being an example of innovation during the challenges presented by the pandemic. MTV showed the world that it is still possible to carry on with one of music’s biggest nights while remaining mindful.last_img read more

Wife of Accused Child Abuser, Merlin Aaron Shane Pardike Speaks Out

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis A case that rocked the city of Alpena has grabbed the attention of locals. Now the wife of the accused child abuser, Merlin Pardike is speaking out.“All he wants to do is be there and love us and support us,” a tearful mother of three said.Those are the words Taylor Renee Pardike wants everyone to hear. The mother of three said she’s been in tears ever since her husband went to jail for 90 days for child abuse just a few weeks ago.Pardike is currently serving his time behind bars, but his wife said she doesn’t believe that her husband abused her child.“I never seen this coming. I know my husband pled guilty and I still stand by his innocence,” Pardike said holding back tears.Pardike who goes by her maiden name, Allen was pregnant at the time with her husband’s 1st child when her now two-year-old daughter from a previous relationship was assaulted.“It’s been a lot of strain on us. I was pregnant when my daughter was abused. I was going through a lot of health problems on top of that, and going back to basically being a single mom, nothing in life prepares you for this,” Pardike admitted.To cope with her difficult time Pardike said the couple have been in counseling. The nightmare happened just a month after the couple walked down the aisle to say their “I Do’s.”Noticing bruises on her child, Pardike said she was contacted by her daughter’s daycare. It was Pardike who told the daycare provider to call Child Protective Services not knowing that it would all back fire and go down hill.“I had my daycare provider call, because there’s a 1-800 number that you can call. Especially daycare providers if you see anything they’re supposed to report it. So I told her: ‘I was on board with it.’ I can’t imagine who would want to hurt a one-and-a-half year old back then. I just can’t imagine,” she explained.Pardike’s husband became involved because he was the last person known to be with his stepdaughter during the time of the incident. Pardike claimed her husband pled guilty to save his family.“At the end of the day I guess we just decided: ‘What would we do for our kids?’ Would I’d rather go to a trial where there’s going to be a jury and let his fate be up in their hands or pled guilty and know that it’s going to be three months. We have a new baby together and he’s missed out on a lot of time and opportunity to bond with her,” Pardike said.The mother of three is devastated by the reputation this case has brought to her and her family. But she hopes to share the man she believes her husband to be.Tune in later this week for more. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: Child Abuse, Child Abuse Case, Merlin Aaron Shane Pardike, Merlin PardikeContinue ReadingPrevious Besser Museum Shows Us How To Protect Our Eyes For The Solar EclipseNext Weather & Thunder Bay Shipwreckslast_img read more

Trump Says DOJ Should “Rescue” Kavanaugh After New Allegation

first_imgChristine Blasey Ford, a California professor and the first Kavanaugh accuser to come forward, told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he sexually assaulted her at a party when they were teenagers. Kavanaugh also denied that allegation.Trump said at the time that Kavanaugh was “under assault.”Conservatives largely supported Kavanaugh, who was confirmed in October to take former Justice Anthony Kennedy’s seat after a 50-48 Senate vote. President Donald Trump is asking the Justice Department to “rescue” Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, after The New York Times published an excerpt from a new book detailing alleged sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh, which he has already denied.The excerpt from “The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation,” written by Times reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, revisits an allegation by Deborah Ramirez that was raised during Kavanaugh’s confirmation process last year.Ramirez accused Kavanaugh of exposing himself to her at a party at Yale University, which Kavanaugh has repeatedly denied.The book also contains a new allegation made to Pogrebin and Kelly by a former male classmate who allegedly told the FBI and senators about an incident he witnessed.Trump tweeted Sunday:last_img read more
