Amazon fails to take on Alibaba to shut China biz

first_imgSAN FRANCISCO: Amazon.com Inc said it will shut its China online store by July 18, as the U.S. e-commerce giant focuses on the lucrative businesses of selling overseas goods and cloud services in the world’s most populous nation. The move underscores how entrenched, home-grown e-commerce rivals have made it difficult for Amazon’s marketplace to gain traction in China. Consumer research firm iResearch Global said Alibaba Group Holding’s Tmall marketplace and JD.com controlled 82 percent of the Chinese e-commerce market last year.

Sources familiar with its plans had told Reuters a day before that the company had planned to make such a move. “We are working closely with our sellers to ensure a smooth transition and to continue to deliver the best customer experience possible,” the spokeswoman said in a statement.

Amazon will wind down support for domestic-selling merchants in China in the next 90 days and review the impact on its fulfilment centers in the country, some of which it may close, one of the people said. “They’re pulling out because it’s not profitable and not growing,” said analyst Michael Pachter at Wedbush Securities. Ker Zheng, marketing specialist at Shenzhen-based e-commerce consultancy Azoya, said Amazon had no major competitive advantage in China over its domestic rivals. Unless someone is searching for a very specific imported good that can’t be found elsewhere, “there’s no reason for a consumer to pick Amazon because they’re not going to be able to ship things as fast as Tmall or JD,” he said. The Amazon spokeswoman said that the company would continue to invest and grow in China through its Amazon Global Store, Global Selling, Kindle e-readers and online content. Amazon Web Services, the company’s cloud computing unit that sells data storage and computing power to enterprises, will also remain. U.S.-listed shares of Alibaba and JD.com rose 1 percent on Wednesday after Reuters first reported the move, before paring gains later in the day. Amazon’s shares closed flat. The withdrawal of the world’s largest online retailer – founded by Jeff Bezos, who later became the world’s richest person – comes amid a broader e-commerce slowdown in China. Alibaba in January reported its slowest quarterly earnings growth since 2016, while JD.com is responding to the changing business environment with staff cuts. It also follows the Chinese e-commerce retreat of other big-name Western retailers. Walmart Inc sold its Chinese online shopping platform to JD.com in 2016 in return for a stake in JD.com to focus on its bricks-and-mortar stores. Similarly, the country appears to factor less in the global aspirations of fellow U.S. tech majors Netflix Inc, Facebook Inc and Alphabet Inc’s Google, Wedbush Securities’ Pachter said. Amazon bought Chinese online shopping website Joyo.com in 2004 for $75 million, rebranding the business in 2011 as Amazon China. But in a sign of Tmall’s dominance, Amazon opened an online store on the Alibaba site in 2015. Amazon is still expanding aggressively in other countries, notably India, where it is contending with local rival Flipkart.last_img read more

MSD says tennisball cricket behind his glovework

first_imgChennai: Mahendra Singh Dhoni is lightning quick behind the stumps and the veteran wicket-keeper batsman said it is a skill which he has developed from tennis ball cricket. Talking about his super quick stumpings, Dhoni said: “I think it’s something that’s come from tennis ball cricket. But you still have to do the basics and graduate to that level. If you want to keep like that you can make mistakes; so I still think basics are most important.” Skipper Dhoni has been in super form in the ongoing IPL and after sitting out for a couple of matches due to fever and a stiff back, he smashed an unbeaten 44 off 22 balls to power Chennai Super Kings to 179 against Delhi Capitals on Wednesday night. CSK were struggling in the beginning but thanks to Dhoni, CSK scored 20 runs from the last over bowled by Trent Boult with the stumper finishing off with two sixes off the final two balls. Asked about his power-packed knock, Dhoni said he had spent enough time on the wicket to understand the bowling variations and unleash his game towards the end to lead Chennai Super Kings to a match-winning total. “Watch the ball, hit the ball. You’ve spent time, you know the variations. By the 20th over you’re almost ready and you swing at everything,” Dhoni said when asked about his last-over exploits. “It’s easier for somebody who has played 10-15 deliveries than someone who has just come in.” Dhoni said the conditions actually favoured them though they lost the toss. “We knew there wouldn’t be much dew. What we’ve seen is if there’s no dew, there’s assistance for spinners. But when we started, Bhajju pa (Harbhajan Singh) didn’t get any turn. But as they started losing wickets, it started spinning, it started turning. Cricket is such a game,” he said after the 80-run win over Delhi Capitals. Left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja, who took three wickets, said the wicket helped spinners. “Obviously I enjoyed bowling, the way the wicket was turning. I was bowling in good areas and the wicket was doing the rest for me,” he said. Asked how it helps having someone like Imran Tahir bowling in tandem with him, Jadeja said the South African has been “fantastic.” “He has been taking wickets whenever we needed. Me, Immy bhai and Bhajju pa (Harbhajan) as a unit, we are bowling the way we want to bowl. Still one more game to go. We need to continue our momentum. Everyone is in good form so we just need to keep the winning momentum going.” Jadeja said Dhoni can be described by one word and that is ‘genius’. Losing skipper Shreyas Iyer said the defeat was a “reality check” for Delhi. “It’s really going to affect us. The way we played was not expected. Everybody will be on their toes in the next game. Wouldn’t blame the abilities of our team but we didn’t play smart cricket. We should have curtailed them,” he said.last_img read more

Quebec Ontario premiers team up to push Ottawa to help fund Bombardier

VANCOUVER — The premiers of Canada’s two most populous provinces have joined forces to push for federal help for Bombardier’s CSeries aircraft.Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard drew support from his Ontario counterpart in calling for Ottawa to back the airliner, saying the CSeries is important to the Canadian economy.The province wants the federal government to join it in contributing US$1 billion to the troubled jet program at Bombardier.Quebec has secured a 49.5 per cent stake in the CSeries and two of five seats on a separate board after agreeing last October to the financial contribution.Bombardier CEO Alain Bellemare says CSeries is en route for successA bailout won’t fix Bombardier’s biggest problems: family control and dual-class sharesCouillard says he understands it takes time for Ottawa to consider the proposal, but he likened Quebec’s case to federal support for the auto industry in the past.Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne supported Couillard, telling reporters at climate change talks in Vancouver that Bombardier is an important national company.The Liberal government has said it was continuing to evaluate the request for funding.The narrow-body CSeries planes, which are two years late and over budget at US$5.4 billion, are set to enter into service in the coming months. read more

Supports available to help students with addiction issues

Brock University is offering help that comes free of charge and without judgment for students coping with addiction issues.As Brock’s on-site addictions counsellor, Stacey Stemplowski, offers appointments two days a week to help students explore coping strategies and set goals to manage their addictions.As part of the supports available through the Student Wellness and Accessibility Centre, and run through a partnership with Community Addictions Services of Niagara, Stemplowski counsels students on a wide range of addictions such as gambling, gaming, other behavioural issues and substance abuse. To do this, she employs an approach to addictions counselling that focuses on harm reduction.“We explore coping strategies and motivation for use,” she said of the time she spends with students. “They are the ones who set the goals, and we support them through the process.”As she begins her counselling sessions, Stemplowski often reassures students that she is there to offer help rather than discipline.“I will not be like a parent,” she said. “This is a conversation not a lecture. I think the idea of harm reduction is new to students, as they are more familiar with abstinence-based treatment.”The support Stemplowski provides often goes beyond addictions and aims to assist students who may be dealing with mental health concerns as well.“A number of years ago, social services approached mental health and addictions as two separate entities,” she said. “Now they are concurrent. I actively partner with our mental health nurse, Deborah MacCulloch, to share strategies, and I use dialectical behaviour therapy training with all of my clients.”This form of therapy is designed to help people suffering from personality disorders. It has also been used to treat mood disorders as well as those who need to change patterns of behaviour that are not helpful, such as self-harm, suicidal ideation and substance abuse.Sarah Pennisi, Director of Brock’s Student Wellness and Accessibility Centre, says the University responded to student feedback to ensure available supports are addressing the needs on campus.“Students have told us that we need to make it easy for them to access services when and if they need them,” she said. “That’s why on-campus mental health and addiction services are so important.”For students who are not presently dealing with an addiction, Stemplowski offered advice on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle.“Maintain an overall balance of school work, family, friends, diet and nutrition to help reduce addiction-related issues,” she said. “But of course, that is never a guarantee.”For those who are dealing with an addiction but are unsure about booking an appointment, Stemplowski had some words of encouragement and reassurance.“Let’s meet once,” she said. “We can discuss the overall picture of what student life looks like to you right now. I can provide some information, even if it’s not ongoing counselling, and I can increase your overall knowledge around the area of addiction in a completely non-judgmental environment.”Stemplowski is available to meet with students on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and can be reached at 905-684-1183 x234 or sstemplowski@cason.ca read more

Atlantas Dismantling Of Tampa Was The SixthMost Dominant In NFL History

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have had some bad moments over the years, but their 56-14 loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night might be the franchise’s lowest point.The Bucs gave up 35 points to the Falcons before gaining a single first down. They trailed 49-0 with 8:11 remaining in the third quarter after an aborted snap — Tampa Bay’s fourth turnover of the game — handed Atlanta the ball on the Bucs’ 2-yard line (Steven Jackson would punch it in for a touchdown on the following play).If Atlanta hadn’t pulled their starters at that point, there was the real sense that they could have challenged Chicago’s NFL-record 73-0 obliteration of Washington in the 1940 NFL Championship Game — it was just that one-sided. As it was, the Falcons’ win was the 108th-biggest blowout in pro football history (since 1940).But that actually sells the performance short, because the score was out of hand so quickly and the margin so lopsided for most of the game; it took a pair of late Tampa Bay touchdowns to pull the margin closer to anything approaching respectability. To better quantify how the game played out, we can use what FiveThirtyEight contributor Chase Stuart calls the “game script,” which measures the average point margin at any given second in a game. And Atlanta’s game script Thursday night — +32.9 — was a doozy. Going back to 1940, it was the sixth-most dominant performance by any pro football team (playoff games are in gray):Naturally, that infamous Chicago-Washington rout was first, with a +34.9 game script. And most fans probably remember the Jacksonville Jaguars dismantling the Miami Dolphins in Dan Marino’s final NFL game, or Tom Brady throwing five second-quarter touchdowns in the snow against the Tennessee Titans. But as far as historic thrashings go, Thursday night’s ranks right up there. read more

Joe Calzaghes father and trainer Enzo very poorly but still fighting in

An alternative reception was held in Caerphilly, south Wales, near where he settled to raise a family having travelled across Europe after completing his national service in the Italian forces. He was born and raised in Sassari, Sardinia. Calzaghe arrived in the UK in the 1970s after hitchhiking and busking his way across Europe. Calzaghe went on to become one of the most well-respected boxing trainers in the world, and after Joe retired in 2008, his father continued to work with young Welsh talent at the Newbridge Boxing Club.  Enzo CalzagheCredit:Gareth Everett/Huw Evans Agency Joe Calzaghe, known as The Fighting Pride of Wales is one of only four European boxers to retire as an undefeated world champion.Calzaghe won his first world title in 1997, defeating Chris Eubank, and retired having held the WBO, WBA, WBC and IBF Super Middleweight Title, along with the Ring Magazine world titles for Super Middleweight and Light Heavyweight.   Calazaghe held his WBO title for over 10 years, and retired with a career record of 46-0 (32 KOs).His father was a constant presence in his corner and won the adoration of fans for his passionate support and quips from the corner.In 2010, he received an MBE for his services to British sport, but due to his Italian nationality, he was unable to attend the Buckingham Palace ceremony.  Joe Calzaghe’s father Enzo, who trained his son to become one of the most decorated British boxers in history, is ‘very poorly’ in hospital. The charismatic corner man, 69, guided his son Joe to an unblemished 46-fight career during which he be became an undefeated world champion over two weight divisions. Tabloid media reports on Saturday wrongly suggested Mr Calzaghe had died, prompting his niece Carrie Calzaghe to issue a statement on behalf of the family. She said: “My uncle, Enzo Calzaghe, has not passed away, this is false news, he is alive but very poorly.”Please allow space for our family at this time. He is alive and still fighting. We will keep you posted and let you know how he is doing when we can.”Please allow and respect our privacy at this time. Thank you.

Geek deals Save 50 on the Dell Vostro 3560 Ivy Bridge laptop

first_imgThis year was a bit of an exception to the usual PC launch cycle we see. Normally, Intel launches their new processors and chipsets at CES in January. The PC manufacturers announce some, if not all, of their new models at the same time and they start shipping within a couple months.Due to Intel’s delay of Ivy Bridge this year, manufacturers across the board were late in actually shipping their new PCs. This caused their existing models to get even more stale on the virtual store shelf. Now that all the major manufacturers have released their new models, they are being extra aggressive with pricing and offering discounts on brand new products, which we have never seen before.Dell was the last of the top PC companies to release refreshed products with Ivy Bridge processors and the Vostro 3560 is looking to be our bargain favorite for the year. It doesn’t do anything revolutionary with design, but is still a decent looker.What we really like is the solid feature set in a robust SMB-focused package. It comes well equipped with four, count them FOUR, USB 3.0 ports, VGA and HDMI video outputs, and an 8-in-1 media card reader. One of the USB ports has Dell’s “PowerShare” feature, which allows you to charge your mobile device with or without the system being powered up.A rare feature on the 3560 these days is an ExpressCard 34mm slot. This is a sign of Dell’s business focus here, as the ExpressCard slot allows extensive expansion options, like external graphics.Dell is offering the 3560 out of the gate for $549 after $50 coupon with a 2nd generation Intel Core i3, 4GB RAM, and 320GB hard drive. Stepping up to a 3rd gen Core i5 model will run $699 and from there the sky’s the limit. Some of the sweeter options on the Vostro 3560 include a 32GB mSATA drive, Radeon HD 7670M graphics, and a 1080p screen.Visit LogicBuy for the Dell Vostro 3560 laptop deallast_img read more

Athens homeless strikes a chord with Greek Australian MP

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Greek Australian Labor MP Steve Georganas was deeply moved by a visit to an Athens Homeless Centre earlier this year. On a trip to Greece, Mr Georganas arranged a visit – through the Australian Ambassador to Greece Jenny Bloomfield – to visit the Homeless Foundation in Athens to see first-hand the devastation inflicted on everyday Greeks through the financial crisis. Yet he also saw the tireless help received through the effort of volunteers to the illegal immigrants in central Athens. “These soup kitchens or homeless centres are struggling to cope with demand at the moment. There are so many people out of work. The economic crisis has been cruel, especially to workers, but crueller still to older people living on very meagre pensions and those who depend on their children to support them,” Mr Georganas told parliament. When speaking to Neos Kosmos, he recalls an elderly Greek gentleman he met at the centre. Mr Georganas struck up a conversation with the pensioner who said his 300 euro a month pension only covers his rent and bills and leaves him with no money to eat. When asked if his pension was cut due to the crisis, the elderly gent said no, but that previously he had relied on the handouts from his two sons who have found themselves unemployed due to the crisis. He is now one of the many Greeks reliant on these centres for sustenance, food and health treatments. Mr Georganas said there were well over 500 people at the centre when he arrived around 3:00 pm and said that although most were foreigners there were many Greeks too. “The majority were foreigners, refugees. What they do is they give them some food, they make sure their health is okay,” he explains. “When we were there, just a few days beforehand they had run out of food, so they put a call out on all television channels for staples, like rice, spaghetti – things that last and within days they filled their warehouse up again and this happens regularly. He said the Greek people respond rapidly to requests by the centre. But was quick to point out the assistance of the diaspora. This year, through fundraising in the community, the Archdiocese of Australia raised over $320,000 for the centre and sent the money directly to the Athens council for assistance in these homeless centres. “What we saw there was both uplifting, because of the enormous energy by volunteers to assist, but very deeply sorrowful as well,” Mr Georganas salast_img read more

Care Medical DSHS resolve issues

first_imgA Portland-Vancouver-area company and the Washington state agency that oversees social services have largely resolved a dispute over a new computerized statewide billing and payment system for Medicaid.At issue was ProviderOne, the Washington Department of Social and Health Services’ $164 million computerized system for handling millions in payments for medical and nursing home care to thousands of health care providers, including doctors and pharmacies.Leaders of Portland-based Care Medical & Rehabilitation Equipment, whose Vancouver office represents about 20 percent of the company’s sales, publicly complained that monthly revenue from Medicaid billings dropped drastically because of glitches with ProviderOne. The company also said it wasn’t the only provider of medical equipment whose bottom line was hurt because of delays and other problems with the system.While state officials acknowledged ProviderOne had bugs early on, they responded to Care Medical’s complaints by saying the company needed to improve its ability to file claims with the system.A turning point in resolving the dispute occurred in October, when Care Medical and DSHS staff met to discuss the problems and to walk through the ProviderOne system, according to Cathie Ott, assistant director of systems and monitoring for DSHS. “They certainly recognized the errors they were making on their side and the work they needed to do to correct it,” Ott said.last_img read more

Cyprus President to probe possibility of new settlement initiative during UN General

first_imgThe President of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades said that he will probe the possibility over a new initiative for a Cyprus settlement during the UN General Assembly, next September in New York.Speaking on Tuesday morning in the village Prodromos, President Anastasiades noted that this is a period of reflection and said that he does not see any initiatives arising at the moment.“We will try to see during the UN General Assembly, through the meetings we will have there, how to reactivate an initiative or how to reactivate the international community” concerning a Cyprus settlement, the President said.He also highlighted the statements from Turkey, showing Ankara’s pursuit of a settlement that is not within the UN parameters, adding that “this is something that the Secretary General and the international community must take into account”.Asked if he prefers the appointment of a European Adviser by the UN, President Anastasiades said that everyone admits that Cyprus is also a European problem. Furthermore, he expressed hope that in the event of a new initiative, the appointment of a new UN Special Adviser will reflect this aspect.UN-peace talks at the Swiss resort of Crans-Montana commenced on June 28. In the early hours of July 7 UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres announced that the Conference on Cyprus ended without an agreement.The talks, held under the auspices of the UN, aim at reuniting Cyprus under a federal roof.CNAYou May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
