  4. Le cout d'un espace de stationnement supplémentaire est moins cher à la construction que dans 20 ans. L'erreur est flagrante au Métro Momontrency avec un stationnement nettement insuffisant comparativement à ce qui était prévu initialement... j'imagine pas les coûts si on devait raser et construire par dessus celui qui est existant (sans compter la grogne pendant les travaux).

  6. Merci bonsoir. Les politiciens mettront les vitesses qu'ils voudront, les policiers sont ceux qui appliquent la loi et eux même n'y croient pas (et la respectent pas). La vitesse est beaucoup plus complexe qu'un simple panneau.... mais ça va chercher des votes faire croire aux gens qu'on va baisser la vitesse dans leur petite rue (leur petit royaume).
  7. Philadelphia is the first US city to ban cashless stores It's unclear whether cashierless Amazon Go stores could operate under the law. Philadephia has passed a law requiring almost all businesses to accept cash payments, effectively banning cashless stores. It comes into force July 1st, and businesses which violate it face a fine of up to $2,000. Cashless businesses can be efficient and convenient while acting as a barrier against robbers looking to steal a stack of bills. However, they can exclude people without a bank account or those who can't or don't want to load funds onto a prepaid debit card, which often charge fees. "It just seemed to me unfair that I could walk into a coffee shop right across from City Hall, and I had a credit card and could get a cup of coffee. And the person behind me, who had United States currency, could not," Councilman Bill Greenlee, a bill co-sponsor, told the New York Times. A spokesman for Mayor Jim Kenney, who signed the bill into law last week, noted to the Wall Street Journal that 26 percent of city residents are below the poverty line. Similar legislation is under consideration in cities including New York, San Francisco, Chicago and Washington, DC. In New Jersey, the legislature has approved a bill which now just needs Governor Phil Murphy's signature to become law. Massachusetts, meanwhile, has long required businesses to accept cash. There are a few exemptions to the Philly law, namely parking garages and lots, online and phone transactions, retailers with a membership model (such as Costco) and companies where a credit card deposit is usually necessary, like hotels and rental car businesses. There's also a measure that could exempt stores like the cashierless Amazon Go chain. The provision allows cashless "transactions at retail stores selling consumer goods exclusively through a membership model that requires payment by means of an affiliated mobile device application." However, Amazon reportedly told the city Go stores would still be affected, because consumers don't have to be Prime members to shop there. They only need an Amazon account.

  8. As tu compris le mien? Si les villes se recentraient sur leur missions premières, ils auraient sûrement plus d'argent pour les TEC (entre autres). Bref, les besoins sont nombreux, mais la nouvelle source des revenues de taxations semble toujours être la même, soit les automobilistes.
  9. Alors pour pallier aux impôts fonciers sur des immeubles, on taxe les automobiles ? C'est quoi le rapport entre immeubles et automobiles? Faudrait commencer par revoir la mission des villes, avant de revoir la méthode de financement des villes. Une ville à les obligations A, B, C et D. Est-ce qu'elle a les moyens de remplir ses obligations avec les méthodes actuelles de taxations? Peut être certaines villes se donnent des missions un peu trop "luxueuses" ou non pertinentes.

Publié le 22 février 2019 à 07h08 | Mis à jour à 07h43 Saputo achète Dairy Crest pour 1,7 milliard La multinationale montréalaise Saputo a annoncé vendredi l'acquisition de la firme britannique Dairy Crest Group pour l'équivalent d'environ 1,7 milliard CAN. Saputo versera 6,20 £ par action ordinaire de Dairy Crest, pour un total d'environ 975 millions de livres. Le conseil d'administration de Dairy Crest a l'intention de recommander à l'unanimité aux actionnaires de Dairy Crest de voter en faveur de la transaction. Dairy Crest, dont le siège social est situé au Royaume-Uni, fabrique et met en marché du fromage, du beurre, de la tartinade et de l'huile, ainsi que des ingrédients laitiers à valeur ajoutée. Dairy Crest compte environ 1100 employés dans sept établissements à travers le Royaume-Uni. La transaction permettrait à Saputo d'étendre sa présence internationale et de pénétrer le marché britannique. La transaction est assujettie à l'approbation des actionnaires de Dairy Crest, à la sanction du plan d'arrangement par le tribunal ainsi qu'à d'autres conditions usuelles pour ce type d'opération, mais elle devrait être conclue au deuxième trimestre de l'année civile 2019. https://www.lapresse.ca/affaires/economie/agroalimentaire/201902/22/01-5215722-saputo-achete-dairy-crest-pour-17-milliard.php

  19. Why did Donald Trump take the Montreal Cognitive Assessment? The president got top marks, but his score should not be interpreted too broadly The Economist explains Jan 19th 2018 by M.D. THE question of whether Donald Trump is mentally fit to hold the office of president has received renewed attention following the publication of Michael Wolff’s exposé, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House”. The book quotes various aides to the president expressing doubts about his competence. Mr Trump, as is his wont, responded with an attack. He called Mr Wolff deranged. Not only is mental stability one of his own greatest assets, the president tweeted—he is also a “very stable genius”. Perhaps conscious that not everyone would take him at his word Mr Trump allowed his doctor to reveal on January 16th that the president had scored 30 out of 30 on the Montreal Cognitive Assessment. What is this test and why does the score matter? Doctors use various tests to see whether the brains of elderly patients are functioning normally. The standard used to be the Mini-Mental State Examination, a set of 11 questions created in 1975. It asked patients things like the date, whether they could spell the word “world” backwards and whether they could repeat the phrase “No ifs, ands or buts”. The test was good at identifying patients with dementia, including Alzheimer’s, but less good at detecting those who had mild cognitive impairment, which is often a prelude to dementia. The Montreal Cognitive Assessment fills this gap. The Montreal test was developed by neurologists at the University of Sherbrooke Neuro Rive-Sud, a clinic just across the river from Montreal that specialises in memory. It asks slightly more complicated questions than the Mini-Mental test and requires the patient to do things like draw a clock showing the time 11:10, to name as many words as possible starting with the letter “F”, and to tap their hand every time they hear the letter “A” while a long string of letters is read to them. The Montreal test, or MoCA, is able to detect mild cognitive impairment about 90% of the time. Nearly three-quarters of the patients identified as abnormal by this test were classified as normal by the Mini-Mental State Examination. Mr Trump’s doctor said the president insisted on taking the cognitive test. His perfect score should not be interpreted too broadly. It indicates he has no problems with what neurologists call “executive” functions such as organisation, planning and abstract thinking. But it says nothing about other psychological matters, such as judgment or personality. It may have appealed also because it takes just 10 minutes to complete. Less appealing, to a president who rails against immigrants and maintains scepticism about their contributions to society, may be the background of the lead neurologist on the team that developed the assessment. Ziad Nasreddine immigrated to Canada from Lebanon at the age of 15 with his widowed mother and sisters. He studied in the United States but returned to Canada, where he developed a test that has been translated into 60 languages and used around the world. He has said that he hopes Mr Trump will draw some lessons about immigrants from his personal story. https://www.economist.com/the-economist-explains/2018/01/19/why-did-donald-trump-take-the-montreal-cognitive-assessment
  20. Reuters/California High-Speed Rail Authority There were concerns about the logistics of California's planned high-speed rail system even as construction began, and those practical realities are finally hitting home. Governor Gavin Newsom said he plans to scale back the rail system, building just the Central Valley segment rather than the full San-Francisco-to-LA route. It would "cost too much" and "take too long" to complete the original railway, he said. Instead, the state would focus on a route running between Merced and Bakersfield, with cities like Fresno along the way. This would leave California's biggest cities out of luck, but it could lead to "economic transformation" for a part of the state that doesn't receive as much attention as the large coastal cities. Newsom didn't rule out completing the rest of the line and suggested he'd press for more public and private funding to flesh things out, but suggested it was better to "get something done." This won't make proponents of the rail system happy, but Newsom was under pressure to take some kind of action. The project, which would have trains connecting most major cities at 220MPH, was originally slated to cost $45 billion. Revisions ballooned the cost to $77 billion, though, and pushed the network's completion back by four years. That made it a target for critics who saw it as a waste of money that could be spent on better causes. Whether or not that's true, the reduced plans still leave the state in a bind. It's losing the prospect of fast inter-state transportation that doesn't involve expensive, fuel-hungry aircraft. And while the new plan is still likely to create jobs, it's definitely not going to produce the 320,000 permanent positions mentioned a decade ago. https://www.engadget.com/2019/02/12/california-scales-back-high-speed-rail-plans/
