The Times of Sri Lanka wishes our readers’ a Happy New Year 2017

Posted on 31 December 2016 by admin

The Editor and his team wish all a Happy New Year 2017. 

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. – Albert Einstein

Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right. – Oprah Winfrey

We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day – Edith Lovejoy Pierce

As you count down the final ten seconds until 2017, it may not register that 24 other parts of the world have already done it. 

Some places are 14 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time, the international time standard located on the Greenwich meridian – so who will be first to observe the new year?

The island nations of Samoa, Tonga, and Kiribati will be the first to see 2017.

Statement by the Prime Minister of Canada to mark the New Year

Posted on 31 December 2016 by admin

December 31, 2016
 

The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement to mark the New Year:

"Happy New Year, everyone.

"Tonight is 150 years in the making, and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to ring in the New Year together. From coast to coast to coast, spectacular events are planned to usher in Canada's 150th birthday.

"Before we leave 2016 behind, I want to thank you. Over the last year, we have accomplished a great deal together to strengthen the middle class and those working hard to join it.

"We cut taxes on middle-class Canadians, and put more money in the pockets of nine out of ten families through a new, more generous Canada Child Benefit; we also signed one of the most progressive free trade deals in history that will benefit Canadians across the country.

“As we mark Canada 150 over the next year, we will honour the generations of Canadians who have come together to create opportunities for one another. We will celebrate the courage and vision of those who came before us, and the hard work and ambition of Canadians – like you – who have made Canada the success story that it is today.

“For my part as Prime Minister, I will always stand against the politics of fear and division, and focus on what brings us together – that is my New Year’s resolution to you.

"In 2017, and beyond, our government will take further steps to help the middle class and those working hard to join it. And, together, I know we will continue to build the diverse and prosperous country that we are all so proud to call home.

"Canada, let's make this year our year.

"On behalf of our family, Sophie and I wish you a wonderful night and all the best in 2017."

1st Test: South Africa beats Sri Lanka by 206-runs

Posted on 30 December 2016 by admin

South Africa v Sri Lanka, 1st Test, Port Elizabeth, 5th dayDecember 30, 2016

 


 

 

Abbott hastens South Africa's crushing win

THE REPORT BY KARTHIK KRISHNASWAMY – COURTESY: ESPN SPORTS MEDIA.

South Africa 286 (Duminy 63, Elgar 59, Lakmal 5-63) and 406 for 6 dec (Cook 117, de Kock 69, du Plessis 67*, Elgar 52) beat Sri Lanka 205 (Philander 5-45) and 281 (Mathews 59, Mendis 58, Rabada 3-77, Maharaj 3-86) by 206 runs.

South Africa made full use of the second new ball to rip through Sri Lanka's last five wickets and complete a 206-run win in Port Elizabeth, an hour and 10 minutes into day five. Once Kyle Abbott broke through early to dismiss Angelo Mathews and Dhananjaya de Silva, there was little Sri Lanka's lower order could do. The margin of Sri Lanka's defeat belied how comfortable their top-order batsmen had looked on day four, and reflected how so many of them had thrown their wickets away.

Chasing 488, Sri Lanka started the final day 248 adrift with five wickets in hand and their last two recognised batsmen at the crease, one of them batting on 58. That man, Mathews, had added only one run to his score when Abbott nipped one in sharply and had a loud lbw shout upheld. Mathews had taken guard on off stump right through the Test match, and this probably played a major role in his dismissal. Jumping back and across, Mathews had to open up to access the ball that was jagging back into the stumps, and before his bat could come across to meet it, the ball had struck his retreating front pad, right in front. He reviewed more in desperation than hope.

A near-replay, down to the failed review, sent de Silva on his way 3.5 overs later. Again the batsman was standing on off stump, and again was forced to play across the line. Again the review returned an umpire's call verdict on height.

In between, Abbott had also dealt Rangana Herath a blow with a sharp lifter that struck him on the bottom hand. Having strapped up his fingers, Herath lasted a further nine balls before Vernon Philander had him caught and bowled, diving across the pitch to catch it low to his left, landing painfully on his arm, after getting the ball to stop on the batsman.

Kagiso Rabada got into the act next, finding away seam movement and extra bounce in the corridor to catch the shoulder of Dushmantha Chameera's bat. The last wicket went to Keshav Maharaj, who finished with a three-wicket haul that was reward for some skillful, tight bowling while getting through 29 overs on day four. He only needed to bowl nine balls on day five, the ninth an absolute ripper, turning past the outside edge of Nuwan Pradeep's defensive bat to knock back off stump.

Sri Lankan shares fall about 10 pct in 2016; directions on rupee, rates awaited

Posted on 30 December 2016 by admin


Dec 30 Sri Lankan shares fell on Friday, posting a yearly decline of about 10 percent, in thin trade due to year-end holidays, while investors waited for directions from the central bank on the rupee and interest rates.

The central bank is most likely to keep its key interest rates steady at a monetary policy meeting later in the day, even as some economists expect further tightening to ease pressure on the rupee following a rate hike by the U.S. Federal Reserve earlier this month, a Reuters poll showed.

Speculation over possible depreciation of the rupee and rate hikes weighed on sentiment, stockbrokers said.

The Colombo stock index closed 0.28 percent lower at 6,228.26, declining 9.7 percent in 2016, its second straight yearly fall.

In terms of dollar value, market capitalisation fell 13 percent, making Sri Lanka a worse performer than emerging Asian markets like Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and Singapore.

Stockbrokers said factors like failure to attract foreign direct investments and lack of investor confidence due to a reversal in some budget policies weighed on the market this year.

"We are going with positive expectations, though it is going to be a challenging year for all," a stockbroker said asking not to be named.

"Politically the government has to prove its policies while the private sector will see some challenges amid possible volatile external environment."

ALSO IN BASIC MATERIALS

Foreign investors sold a net 6.4 million rupees of equities on Friday, but purchased a net 633.5 million rupees ($4.24 million) in 2016, compared with a net sell of 4.43 billion rupees last year.

Turnover stood at 202 million rupees, less than a third of this year's daily average of 737.2 million rupees. Last year's daily average was 1.06 billion rupees.

Hollywood star Jennifer Lopez, 47, and Toronto Rapper DRAKE are an item

Posted on 29 December 2016 by admin

Hollywood star Jennifer Lopez, 47, and Toronto Rapper Drake, 30, appear to be an item. A loved-up picture appeared on both of their Official Instagram pages in the early hours of Wednesday morning, and even though it came with no explanation, it seemed to be enough to reaffirm the tryst. The cuddling holiday post won't be something that his ex-girlfriend Rihanna, 28, is waking up to, since it comes just one day after the news that she unfollowed her love rival, this weekend.

 

Drake and Jennifer Lopez have been spending a lot of time together lately. So naturally, when two single and famous people are seen in the same space, romance rumors are are swirling. Apparently, sources are telling TMZ that it’s “only a matter of time” before the two music powerhouses take their relationship to the next level. Though the two are currently just close friends working on music together, Drizzy and J.Lo are “pretty clearly going in that direction,” according to the publication.Dating rumors first sparked when Drake was seen at not one, but two of Lopez’s Las Vegas shows in the span of one week. At the time, the Canadian rapper shared a selfie with the singer on his Instagram, captioning the photo with a “😍” emoji.

Confirmed? Jennifer Lopez and Drake appeared to confirm their relationship on Tuesday, when they posted a cuddling picture to Instagram

Excerpts from numerous media outlets appended below:

  • Confirmed? Jennifer Lopez and Drake appeared to confirm their relationship on Tuesday, when they posted a cuddling picture to Instagram. The 47-year-old mum-of-two was the first to post the snuggling picture, which sees her younger contemporary wrapping both arms affectionately around her neck with one eye staring down the lens of the camera. Jennifer, nestled into his bear-like grasp, seems more restful and is captured with her eyes closed. Early speculation of a romance has led some to question whether Jenny From The Block went against the 'girl code' by dating a fellow musician's ex. Rumours of a relationship were sparked earlier this month when Drizzy attended two of JLo's Las Vegas concerts back-to-back, and hosted an exclusive gathering that she went to.​
  • Look of love: The 30-year-old rapper posted this Instagram shot with J.Lo earlier this month along with an arrow pointing to an emoji face with hearts for eyes captioned, 'Lotta those'
  • An insider told E! News it was an extremely 'intimate dinner' held at celebrity hot spot Delilah in West Hollywood, and the pair reportedly left together.
  • Jennifer and Rihanna who spent Christmas with friends and family in her native Barbados, are longtime pals despite the 19-year age gap.
  • Earlier in 2016, the brunette beauty gave J.Lo a pair of blue boots from her design collaboration with Manolo Blahnik.
  • In a handwritten note to the singer, Rih called Jennifer 'the baddest… because I know you're gonna wear them better than me!!

The J-Lo way: Jennifer reflected on the year gone by, just two days ago but neglected to mention her new love

Sad end: One of the downs is most likely a summer split with Casper Smart, who she was with on and off for five years (pictured here in March)

But 2016 was the year in which Rihanna and Drake were thought to have rekindled the flame, and he supported her on numerous tour dates – including his Summer Sixteen shows in September, and her Anti World Tour shows in April where he appeared. 

Conversely, this year has seen Jennifer end her five-year on and off relationship with beau Casper Smart, 29, who was similarly more than 17 years her junior.

On Boxing Day, Jennifer admitted that 2016 had been filled with its 'ups and downs' as she expressed her gratitude that her 'coconuts' – her eight-year-old twins Max and Emme – were healthy in a social media post about the year gone by.

He wants her back: Marc Anthony (Jennifer's long-term ex-husband, here in November) was thought to be trying to get back with Jennifer in 201

It's over: Jennifer and Marc (here in February 2011) confirmed the end to their marriage in 2014

'I have a ritual every year once everyone is asleep I like to go sit by the tree and think about the year that just went by,' she wrote to her followers.

She went on: 'This year I can honestly say my heart is full – this year had its ups and downs.

'But as I sit here in my living room with my coconuts sleeping soundly upstairs, all of us healthy, a house full of family and friends, I feel surrounded by love and overflowing with gratitude for the many new blessings in my life.'

She neglected to mention any new love interests, especially since this year has reportedly seen ex-husband Marc Anthony try to win her back.

Marc and Jennifer, who share their eight-year-old twins, were married between 2004 and 2014, but his second marriage to Shannon De Lima was confirmed to have ended this November, too.

Rumours of a reunion between Marc and Jennifer were rife in November when they shared a lingering kiss at The 17th Annual Latin Grammy Awards. 

With a history of more than 20 years, Marc and Jennifer initially tied the knot in 2004, when her engagement to actor Ben Affleck ended.

 

Jennifer was previously married to Cris Judd for two years, until 2003 and Ojani Noa for two years, until 1998.

Her pride and joy: She is grateful for what she has, including her two 'coconuts,' twins Max and Emme, aged eight (pictured in March 2015)

They go everywhere with her: Emme and Max are Jennifer's children from her third marriage to Marc Anthony

Hollywood “fifties” star Debbie Reynolds, 84, no more

Posted on 29 December 2016 by admin

LOS ANGELES — Debbie Reynolds, who lit up the screen in "Singin' in the Rain' and other Hollywood classics despite a tumultuous life, has died a day after losing her daughter, Carrie Fisher. Reynolds was 84.

Her son, Todd Fisher, said Reynolds died Wednesday.

"She's now with Carrie and we're all heartbroken," Fisher said from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where his mother was taken by ambulance earlier Wednesday.

He said the stress of his sister's death on Tuesday "was too much" for Reynolds. Carrie Fisher, who was 60, had been hospitalized since Friday.

"She said, 'I want to be with Carrie,"' her son said. "And then she was gone."

Reynolds enjoyed the heights of show business success and endured the depths of personal tragedy. She lost one husband to Elizabeth Taylor and two other husbands plundered her for millions. Fisher, who found lasting fame as Princess Leia in "Star Wars" and struggled for much of her life with drug addiction and mental health problems, died after falling ill on a plane.

Reaction to Reynolds' death was swift.

"Debbie Reynolds, a legend and my movie mom. I can't believe this happened one day after Carrie," Albert Brooks, who played opposite Reynolds in "Mother," said on Twitter.

"I can't imagine what Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds' family are going through this week. I send all of my love," Ellen DeGeneres tweeted.

Reynolds found superstardom early. After two minor roles at Warner Bros. and three supporting roles at MGM, studio boss Louis B. Mayer cast her in "Singin' in the Rain," despite Kelly's objections. She was 19 with little dance experience, and she would be appearing with two of the screen's greatest dancers, Donald O'Connor and Kelly.

"Gene Kelly was hard on me, but I think he had to be," Reynolds, who more than held her own in the movie, said in a 1999 Associated Press interview. "I had to learn everything in three to six months. Donald O'Connor had been dancing since he was three months old, Gene Kelly since he was 2 years old."

The 1964 Meredith Willson musical "The Unsinkable Molly Brown," with Molly's defiant song "I Ain't Down Yet," brought Reynolds her only Academy Award nomination. She also received a Tony nomination in 1973 for her starring role in the Broadway revival of "Irene," in which her daughter also appeared.

After her transition from starlet to star, Reynolds became popular with teenage girls and even more so when in 1955 she married Eddie Fisher, the pop singer whose fans were equally devoted.

The couple made a movie together, "Bundle of Joy," which seemed to mirror the 1956 birth of Carrie. The Fishers also had a son, Todd, named for Eddie's close friend and Taylor's husband, showman Mike Todd.

During this period, Reynolds had a No. 1 hit on the pop charts in 1957 with "Tammy," the Oscar-nominated song from her film "Tammy and the Bachelor." But the Cinderella story ended after Mike Todd died in a 1958 airplane crash. Fisher consoled the widow and soon announced he was leaving his wife and two children to marry Taylor.

News Release Shingles Vaccine Free for Ontario Seniors

Posted on 29 December 2016 by admin

  

December 29, 2016.

Provincial Program Helps Save Seniors Money and Stay Healthy

Ontario is reminding seniors who are turning 65 in 2017 that, starting January 1, they will be eligible to get the shingles vaccine free of charge, saving them approximately $170 and helping them stay healthy.

Seniors aged 65 to 70 can get the vaccine from their doctor or nurse practitioner. The vaccine greatly reduces the risk of developing shingles.

Shingles, also known as herpes zoster, affects more than 42,000 people every year in Ontario. People with shingles often experience pain, tingling, or itching and then a painful rash. This rash can last for a month or more and is often severe enough to interfere with daily activities. For some, complications from the virus can lead to serious health problems such as loss of vision and prolonged nerve pain.

Expanding Ontario's publicly funded immunization program to help seniors stay healthy is part of the government's plan to build a better Ontario through its Patients First: Action Plan for Health Care, which is providing patients with faster access to the right care, better home and community care, the information they need to stay healthy and a health care system that's sustainable for generations to come.

 

 

QUICK FACTS

  • Ontario is the only jurisdiction in Canada that provides the shingles vaccine free of charge.
  • Approximately 850,000 seniors between the ages of 65 and 70 are eligible to receive the publicly funded shingles vaccine.
  • Approximately 200,000 doses of the publicly funded shingles vaccine have been distributed throughout Ontario since the program launched in September.
  • The shingles vaccine is also available in participating pharmacies. Patients who choose to receive the vaccine from a pharmacist will need a prescription from their primary care provider and will have to pay the pharmacy a fee for the vaccine.
  • Studies show that the vaccine is highly effective when seniors are vaccinated between the ages of 65 to 70. The program aligns with scientific and expert recommendations from Canada’s National Advisory Committee on Immunization and Ontario’s Provincial Infectious Diseases Advisory Committee on Immunization.
  • Shingles is caused by the reactivation of the varicella zoster virus, the same virus that causes chickenpox.

Growth that Creates Shared Benefits the Hallmark of Ontario in 2016

December 29, 2016

Significant Progress Made on Building Ontario Up for Everyone

The government has made substantial progress this year to build Ontario up in ways that help people in their everyday lives.

Premier Kathleen Wynne and her team are delivering on their commitments to create jobs, make economic growth more inclusive and ensure Ontario's growing economy delivers real benefits in the lives of workers and families. As promised, the province is on course to present a balanced budget this coming spring and has put Ontario's finances on solid ground without reducing public services that people rely on. In fact, Ontario took several new steps to strengthen public services in 2016, including:

 

  • Making college and university tuition free for more than 150,000 students from families earning less than $50,000 a year, and providing more generous grants to make college and university more affordable for students from middle-income families, starting in 2017-18
  • Helping to create 100,000 more licensed child care spaces for infants, toddlers and preschoolers within the next five years
  • Reducing electricity costs for five million residential consumers, small businesses and farms, and providing additional savings for rural residents and businesses 
  • Putting patients first by increasing investments in hospitals, home care and front-line workers and proposing legislation to improve access to primary care providers and ensure better coordination and continuity of care for patients
  • Introducing legislation to strengthen and modernize Ontario's child and youth services by putting children at the centre of decision making and supporting more accountable, responsive and accessible services
  • Enhancing transit and improving roads and bridges across the province, including key milestones on LRT and subway projects in Toronto; investing to expand LRT service in Ottawa and GO Rail service in Waterloo, Niagara, Barrie, Durham and York regions; and improving the connecting link on Highway 26 through Barrie
  • Making Ontario an even better place to do business by inviting the public and businesses to find ways to help cut red tape and working to ensure employees have the skills needed in a changing economy
  • Working with Indigenous partners to address the legacy of residential schools, close gaps and remove barriers, support Indigenous culture and reconcile relationships with Indigenous peoples
  • Expanding trade and strengthening international partnerships through Premier's missions to India, Mexico, the U.S., Israel and the Middle East, and Japan and South Korea
  • Advocating for and achieving a national agreement to improve retirement security by enhancing the Canada Pension Plan
  • Launching an action plan to fight climate change that will create good jobs, increase options for consumers and open up new opportunities for investment in Ontario.

 

Building a more inclusive economy and strengthening public services across Ontario are part of the government's plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.

 

 

 

 

 

QUICK FACTS

  • Global companies such as GE, Fiat Chrysler, IBM, Google, General Motors and Huawei are making major investments in Ontario, attracted by our competitive tax system, stable financial markets, modern infrastructure and highly skilled workforce.
  • Ontario is making the largest infrastructure investment in hospitals, schools, public transit, roads and bridges in the province’s history. To learn more about what’s happening in your community, go to Ontario.ca/BuildON.
  • The government remains on track to balancing the budget in 2017–18 and keeping it balanced in 2018–19.

 

 

QUOTES

"Many parts of Canada, North America and the world are ending 2016 with uncertainty. Not Ontario. The plan we developed together to build our province up is working. Our economy is growing, and across the province you can see the transformation that is happening. We are creating inclusive growth that benefits everyone. We are making college and university more affordable, adding 100,000 new child care spaces, investing in front-line care, building roads and transit, and making our province an even better place to raise a family and do business. I look forward to building on this momentum in 2017 as we work to ensure that everyone in every region is experiencing the benefits of our strong, growing economy."
 — Kathleen Wynne, Premier of Ontario
