To Preserve Aerospace Cluster San Antonio Needs to Revisit Its Value Proposition

first_imgSan Antonio needs to think strategically about the advantages it offers the aerospace industry to ensure it doesn’t lose a chunk of the sector to other places, a senior executive with Port San Antonio said at a chamber of commerce event last month.Officials should consider further investment in facilities and the workforce, expanding the components of the aerospace industry the region excels in and competing on qualities other than price, according to Jim Perschbach, executive vice president for business development at Port San Antonio, the reuse project at the former Kelly Air Force Base.The city specializes in maintenance, repair and overhaul, with a core competency in servicing aging types of airframes and engines, reported San Antonio Express-News. But it could strengthen its aerospace cluster by branching out to commercial paint application, satellite communications, landing gear and navigation, Perschbach said. The port is home to nearly 12,000 workers in the aerospace, manufacturing, logistics and DOD sectors.“We have a skill set that I would put up against anywhere in the world for working on those platforms,” he said. “But when you look at newer aircraft coming online, newer engines coming on line, it’s an entirely new technology. And it’s going to require that we maintain that edge.”Perschbach also highlighted the need for San Antonio to review the incentives it offers major employers, a tool that continues to play an oversized role in attracting aerospace companies.“What are others doing? It’s big cash incentives, big infrastructure incentives, all targeted to employers who do three things: pay well, attract other employers and are in it for the long haul,” he said.  Through continued investment in its aerospace facilities and workforce development programs, the city could be in a position to guarantee the industry cluster never leaves the region.  “There is such a thing in industry as being too big to fail; and we need to make sure that whatever industry it is, whether it’s aerospace or cyber, whatever, it just can’t afford to pick up and leave,” Perschbach said.

COPY LINKAD Loading … Know about the new 100 currency notecenter_img A better probability of Prime Minister Narendra Modi getting a second term after an escalation in tensions between India and Pakistan has had an unlikely gainer — rupee. In a matter of five weeks, the rupee has made a dramatic turnaround to become Asia’s best-performing currency from its worst. The optimism after several exit polls showed a spike in approval ratings of the prime minister has led to robust flows into local shares and debt, turning the carry-trade returns on the rupee to the highest in the world in the past month.The currency is set to rally further if PM Modi wins a second term, Gao Qi, a currency strategist at Scotiabank in Singapore told Bloomberg. A dovish tilt by major central banks across the world amid weakening growth could also lead to investors chasing high returns in emerging economies. Around 11 central banks have eased monetary policy this year, while just three have tightened policy. Qi expects the rupee to strengthen to around 67 per dollar by June-end.A sudden surge in the inflow of dollars has sent the rupee to its highest level since August, prompting profit booking that led to the currency witnessing a drop on Tuesday after six trading sessions of continuous gains. In the year-to-date, foreigners bought a net $3.3 billion of shares, accounting for over half of total inflows of $5.6 billion in the period. Foreign investors have also raised holdings of bonds by $1.4 billion this month. According to data compiled by Bloomberg, borrowing in dollars to purchase rupee assets has earned 3.8 per cent over the past one month, the best carry-trade return in the world. A customer hands Indian currency notes.REUTERS”The market is pricing in a Modi victory as there are no other factors that explain the sudden change of mood,” Anindya Banerjee, an analyst at Kotak Securities told the media agency.Several opinion polls show the ruling coalition-led by PM Modi may get over 272 seats in the Lok Sabha needed to form the next government. Polling will start on April 11 and results are slated to come out on May 23. Besides improved sentiments, carry traders are eager to long rupee and short other low-yielding currencies, including the dollar.Investor optimism on rupee is also reflected in the derivatives market, where one-month options conferring the right to sell the rupee now cost 19 basis points more than those to buy. “Global conditions — dovish Fed and ECB — have turned more supportive and domestically, increased confidence in the BJP’s prospects and a recovery in portfolio flows have been the key driver for the rupee,” said Dushyant Padmanabhan, a currency strategist at Nomura Holdings Inc. in Singapore.Other indicators such as three-month implied volatility, which is used to gauge expected swings used to price options, too point towards a stronger rupee. The volatility gauge fell to 5.87 per cent on Friday, the lowest level since August.last_img read more

Anisul terms CJs verdict observations vindictive

first_imgLaw minister Anisul Huq.The government has rejected the rationales cited in the Supreme Court’s verdict on 16th constitutional amendment, says law minister Anisul Huq.In his formal reaction to the SC judgement at a media briefing at Bangladesh Secretariat on Thursday, he said that a decision on whether the government will legally challenge the verdict would be taken after thorough scrutiny of the verdict text.Read more:CJ’s political remarks in 16th amendment verdict hurt, grieve, damage AL: Khasru“We’re still considering whether a judicial review [petition] should be filed,” he said.The law minister alleged that the arguments and observations made by the chief justice in the verdict were not based on “fact in issues”.“[Some of the] observations of the chief justice are simply not logical; they are emotionally charged and reflect a vindictive attitude,” said the law minister.Read more:‘No scope for debate on SC verdict in parliament’He added that the government would take initiative to expunge the ‘objectionable matters’ in the judgement.The minister, in response to a query, however, said the government would not use politics to counter the court verdict.He rejected the court’s arguments that the 16th amendment, which gave parliament the power to remove judges for any misconduct and incompetence, had in any way hampered the independence of the judiciary.Read more: AL in discomfort over court verdict, latest dev“Parliament was not in a power contest with the judiciary by making provision for the parliament to remove judges. Rather independence of the judiciary was strengthened,” the minister claimed.Anisul Huq also expressed reservations about chief justice SK Sinha’s observation that “no nation – no country is made of, or by one person”.“Although Bangabandhu was in the Pakistan jail, the war of liberation was fought under his leadership and thus the country became independent,” the law minister said.Read more:Not falling into govt or opposition trap: CJThe Appellate Division of the Supreme Court on 3 July this year scrapped the 16th amendment and restored the Supreme Judicial Council and the full text of the verdict was released 1 August, stirring a huge debate over which of the state organ is sovereign – is it the legislature or the judiciary.The AL-led 10th parliament on 17 September 2014 unanimously passed the Constitution (Sixteenth Amendment) Bill restoring its power to remove Supreme Court judges on the grounds of misconduct or incapacity, scrapping the existing constitutional provisions for the Supreme Judicial Council inquiry into such allegations.Read more: Judiciary’s arm can’t reach parliament: ALThe country’s main opposition political party – Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) – has hailed the court verdict and is accusing the ruling Bangladesh Awami League (AL) of standing against the judiciary.Earlier on Wednesday, the Law Commission chairman and former chief justice ABM Khairul Haque observed that the 16th amendment verdict has effectively removed the judges’ accountability to the people.Following the Supreme Court verdict that stripped off parliament’s power to remove judges, he said, it ‘seems to me that Bangladesh is no longer a People’s Republic’; rather it becomes a ‘Judges’ Republic of Bangladesh’.Read more:As if it’s judges’ Republic, says ex-CJ Khairul Haquelast_img read more

India smashes Bangladesh anthemsinging record

first_imgHalf a million Indians have set a new world record by performing a mass rendition of their national anthem, as patriotic sentiment rises under a nationalist government.It smashes the previous record of roughly 254,500 set in the Bangladesh capital Dhaka in 2014.The “Jana Gana Mana” anthem was sung by 509,261 people in Gujarat, the home state of Hindu nationalist Prime Minister Narendra Modi, at the opening of a Hindu temple, said Guinness World Records.”The event attracted close to 1 million people according to the auditors, but only the above number could be accommodated in the record attempt area,” the world record-keeper said on its website.The feat was accomplished in late January but only validated recently by Guinness World Records.”We feel very proud to have achieved this record, which is nearly double that of the previous record,” Paresh Gajera, chairman of the organising committee overseeing the stunt in the western state, told AFP.The patriotic effort comes amid a fiery debate in India over exploitation of the anthem, and concerns about overt displays of nationalism under Modi’s right-wing administration.The Supreme Court ruled in November that cinemas must play the national anthem before screening movies and audiences should stand for it, drawing angry accusations of an assault on civil liberties.There have been reports of cinemagoers being assaulted for refusing to stand, while others were arrested for failing to obey the ruling.Some liberals say freedom of speech is being stifled by Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party, which came to power in 2014.last_img read more

Senate Gives Approval To Two AbortionRelated Bills

first_imgMichael Stravato for The Texas TribuneA woman reflects quietly in the waiting room at Planned Parenthood of Gulf Coast’s ambulatory surgical center in Houston Friday, August 2, 2013.The Texas Senate gave approval to two abortion-related bills on Wednesday.The upper chamber gave final passage to Senate Bill 8, which would ban what opponents call “partial-birth” abortions and put restrictions on donating fetal tissue, and gave initial approval to Senate Bill 415, which would ban doctors from performing dilation and evacuation abortions.Sen. Charles Schwertner, R-Georgetown, said he sponsored SB 8 because Texas law enforcement “lacks the authority to enforce the ban on partial-birth abortion.” The procedure is already prohibited by federal law, and Schwertner said he wants to align state and federal statute, allowing Texas law enforcement to prosecute cases.The other main function of SB 8 would be a ban on the sale of fetal tissue and increased restrictions on donations of such tissue for medical research. The sale of fetal tissue is illegal under federal law, but if a patient consents, abortion clinics may donate fetal tissue for use in medical research. Federal law allows clinics to be reimbursed for costs “associated with the transportation, implantation, processing preservation, quality control, or storage of human fetal tissue” for research purposes.While presenting his bill, Schwertner cited videos released in 2015 that showed Planned Parenthood officials across the nation, including in Houston, discussing how their providers obtain fetal tissue for medical research. Though the videos have been widely debunked, abortion opponents claim they are evidence of Planned Parenthood employees admitting to selling fetal tissue.The only debate the bill faced before confirmation was over an amendment by Sen. Judith Zaffirini, D-Laredo, which would allow a women whose pregnancy was terminated to request the donation of any aborted fetal tissue for medical research that could, she said, “save lives.” Though Schwertner agreed that “research is important,” he said his bill aimed to remove “any incentive of utilization of human fetal tissue for profit.”Zaffirini’s amendment was voted down.The bill received a Senate Health and Human Services Committee hearing last month, which Schwertner chairs.“What we want to do is get away from profiting motive as well as middlemen dealing with fetal tissue,” Schwertner said at that hearing.The Senate also tentatively approved SB 415, by Charles Perry, R-Lubbock, which targets dilation and evacuation abortions — second-trimester procedures where doctors use surgical instruments to grasp and remove pieces of fetal tissue. Opponents call them “dismemberment abortions.”During a heated debate on the Senate floor, Sen. Sylvia Garcia, D-Houston, asked Perry whether he had consulted with any obstetrics and gynecology groups before drafting the bill. Perry said no.Later, Sen. José Rodríguez, D-El Paso, told the chamber that medical professionals agree that the dilation and evacuation procedure is the safest way to perform an abortion after the first trimester and said the bill would potentially punish doctors who use the procedure to save a woman’s life.Sen. Kirk Watson, D-Austin, then introduced an amendment that would allow doctors to perform the procedure if it is the safest available option for a pregnant woman. The amendment failed. The bill is scheduled for a final vote on Monday.Read more:Senate Health and Human Services Committee members heard emotional testimony last month from reproductive rights activists and abortion opponents over three measures that would further restrict the procedure.This article originally appeared in The Texas Tribune at https://www.texastribune.org/2017/03/15/texas-senate-abortion-bills/.Texas Tribune mission statementThe Texas Tribune is a nonprofit, nonpartisan media organization that informs Texans — and engages with them — about public policy, politics, government and statewide issues.
