IAEA should return to Iraq as soon as possible Security Council told

“The IAEA should resume its work in Iraq as soon as possible,” Mohamed ElBaradei, Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), said in a statement delivered on his behalf to an informal meeting of the Security Council on the weapons inspections process. During the session, the Council also heard from Hans Blix, Executive Chairman of the UN Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission (UNMOVIC), which was responsible for investigating Iraq’s alleged biological, chemical and ballistic weapons programmes.”The IAEA continues to be the sole organization with legal powers – derived from both the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and successive Security Council resolutions – to verify Iraq’s nuclear disarmament,” Mr. ElBaradei said. “We await the guidance of the Council as to the modalities of our return.”Mr. ElBaradei further informed the Council that the IAEA had advised the coalition about the need for physical protection of the location of Iraq’s declared nuclear material. He said the IAEA had also provided information about the location of radioactive sources, to enable safety and security measures to be taken.Representing Mr. ElBaradei in the Council’s consultations was Gustavo Zlauvinen, head of the IAEA’s New York office, who also briefed the Council on the Agency’s fifteenth report assessing nuclear disarmament in Iraq.The report concludes that, as of 17 March, when IAEA inspectors left Iraq before the onset of military action, the Agency “had found no evidence or plausible indication of the revival of a nuclear weapons program in Iraq.” read more

Michael Beasley Heading Back to Miami Heat

Troubled free agent Michael Beasley might return to the two-time world champion Miami Heat as sources say the franchise is considering the 6-foot-10 forward.According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the Miami Heat is contemplating returning Beasley to their roster after he was waived by the Phoenix Suns following his arrest in early August for possession of marijuana.Several of the Heat’s key veteran players are supporting the signing of Beasley, who was the second overall pick by the Heat in the 2008 NBA draft.Beasley spent two seasons with the Heat, averaging 14.1 points, before team president Pat Riley traded him to the Timberwolves for draft picks and to clear salary-cap space to bring in LeBron James and Chris Bosh. Though no offers or guarantees have been made, Beasley is reported to have a strong interest in returning to the team. read more

The Warriors And Rockets Have Reinvented Modern NBA Defense Yes Defense

HOUSTON — The NBA Finals are the crown jewel of the playoffs for obvious reasons, but it’d be hard to argue with anyone who views this vaunted Western Conference finals matchup between the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets, which opens Monday night, as this year’s main event.The Warriors have two of the best three players in the world in their starting five, have won two of the past three titles and appeared borderline annoyed by having to face questions about whether they’re concerned to be starting a series without home-court advantage for the first time in their recent championship era. The Rockets won an NBA-best 65 regular-season games, have likely MVP James Harden and future Hall of Famer Chris Paul in their backcourt and possess a group of sweet-shooting teammates who stretch the floor as if it’s made of Play-Doh.The offensive firepower — Golden State and Houston finished No. 1 and No. 2 in offensive efficiency and virtually averaged the same number of points per 100 possessions — guarantees we’ll hear plenty about how well these teams score. But because of that, something else about the Rockets and Warriors may fly beneath the radar: The NBA’s two best clubs are even further ahead of the curve on defense. In a league that’s more reliant than ever on the pick-and-roll offense, these defenses are unmatched when it comes to their versatility and ability to switch assignments on the fly.Houston defended a screen-and-roll by switching on 1,406 possession chances during the regular season, while Golden State orchestrated 1,075 switches of its own, according to data from Second Spectrum and NBA Advanced Stats. These teams — which more than doubled the switch totals compiled by 20 other squads — were outliers: The Lakers were the only other club that broke 800 switches during the 2017-18 season.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/rox.mp4Media error: Format(s) not supported or source(s) not foundmejs.download-file: https://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/rox.mp4?_=100:0000:0000:21Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.And it isn’t just that the Warriors and Rockets switch a lot. They also use the strategy to fuel their high-octane offenses. Houston forced 3.5 turnovers per 100 switches, while Golden State forced 2.4, the best rates in the league, according to Second Spectrum.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/warriors.mp400:0000:0001:38Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.That ability — having two similarly sized players trade their defensive responsibilities quickly enough during a pick-and-roll that the offense doesn’t gain an edge — speaks to the length and versatility these Western Conference foes have. And it takes on added importance in a matchup like this, in which the Warriors and Rockets use an array of screens (albeit differently1The Warriors use fewer pick-and-roll plays than any other team in basketball, while the Rockets use more direct screens than any team, according to Second Spectrum data. That said, Golden State, seeking to free up Klay Thompson, sets more off-ball screens than any club.) to free up their most lethal shooters beyond the 3-point line.“You have to cover more ground than ever before. It’s amazing: Sometimes I’ll turn on the classic sports channel and find Lakers-Celtics games from the 1980s — some of the best games ever — and the game is played in this tiny little radius. Now it’s way out on the perimeter,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “Every possession was, you dump it into the post, a double comes, and you might see six or eight threes taken in a game. But everything was different. The rules were different. The talent is different. Very few low-post players anymore. The league’s adapted. Coaches have adapted. Things are ever-changing. And you have to change along with that.”Anyone who’s followed the Warriors’ dominance these past few years knows a huge chunk of that success stems from Golden State’s ability to go small and play Draymond Green — who may not even be the ideal height for a traditional small forward — at center. That alignment, with the addition of Andre Iguodala, gives the Warriors four long-limbed clones who are laterally quick enough and strong enough to cover almost anyone. With that defensive speed, Golden State can gamble a bit more on that end; it knows the opposing offense generally won’t be able to find mismatches, even if a switch has taken place.“At the end of the day, it’s really just another way for us to cut off the other team’s options with our versatility,” said Green, the league’s reigning defensive player of the year, who sometimes calls an audible — and moves a teammate out of the way — before a screen occurs to be in position to thwart the play.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/dray.mp4Media error: Format(s) not supported or source(s) not foundmejs.download-file: https://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/dray.mp4?_=300:0000:0000:12Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Houston has also made life difficult for opponents with its versatility on defense. By and large, the Rockets have been far more successful on defense than most would have guessed, jumping to sixth in defensive efficiency this season after ranking 21st in 2015-16 and 18th in 2016-17. Adding the sticky-handed Paul certainly factored into that improvement, but plugging free-agent signings Luc Mbah a Moute and P.J. Tucker into the lineup likely did even more for the defense.“Their ability to guard 1 through 5 makes it so much easier for us. That’s why we’re so much better on defense this year,” Houston guard Eric Gordon said of the duo, which sometimes shares the frontcourt despite neither standing taller than 6-foot-8. (Nonetheless, the lineup pays dividends: Houston, trailing by 14 heading into the fourth quarter at Portland in December, came back to win by 7 while using Mbah a Moute and Tucker at the 4 and 5 for the entire period.)Mbah a Moute, in particular, has become a vital piece. According to a defensive dashboard created by Nylon Calculus contributor Krishna Narsu, the wing’s versatility was highly unusual. This season, he was one of just seven players to spend at least 15 percent of his time guarding each of the following positions: point guard, shooting guard, small forward and power forward.Unsurprisingly, the Rockets struggled in his absence during the middle of the campaign, enduring a season-long five-game losing streak. The Rockets’ 101.2 defensive rating with Mbah a Moute on the court this season would have ranked best in the league on a team scale, while their 105.4 rating without him would have had them just slightly above average, at No. 12.Above all else, Mbah a Moute and Tucker carry so much importance because they make Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni — one of the game’s brightest offensive minds who was never really known for switching with his defenses — more comfortable utilizing this style of play.“To even have a chance against a team like Golden State, you have to make a point of not being put into rotations. They’ll kill you that way. So I’m just happy we have a roster full of guys to where it makes sense to be able to switch the way we do,” he said.To be sure: Neither team is breaking from decades of tradition with this strategy on defense, even if they are using it far more often than everyone else. On some level, this is no different from what the LeBron James-era Miami Heat did when it rode small ball to a championship in 2012. (Kerr would be the first to tell you that he never envisioned Green playing the rim-protector role when he took the Warriors job. “We didn’t know Draymond was Draymond yet,” he told me.) Beyond that, it wouldn’t be fair to gloss over how unbelievably dominant these teams are on offense, given how big a role scoring plays in their success.Yet there are reasons to think that creative, well-timed switches will heavily factor into this series as the chess match of hunting for what each team perceives to be mismatches unfolds.The Warriors have made no secret of the fact that they like to post up Kevin Durant when they spot him being guarded by Paul following a screen.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/durant.mp400:0000:0000:45Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Meanwhile, Harden and the Rockets are even less shy about attacking Stephen Curry; they’ll often run multiple pick-and-rolls until they get him on an island for a 1-on-1 matchup. In fact, they used this tactic six times in a seven-possession span during the final four minutes of the teams’ last regular-season meeting Jan. 20, a 116-108 Houston win.“We’re just gonna watch film and find ways to attack them offensively,” Harden said when I asked about that sequence. “We’ll take our shots, play unselfishly. Pretty simple.”Curry thinks this will mean isolating him in the same way this series. “I hope it’s every single play,” he told The Athletic’s Anthony Slater. “If you look at the ‘Hamptons Five’ lineup that’s out there, I would probably do the same exact thing if I was coaching against me. You’ve got Klay (Thompson), Andre, Draymond and KD out there. I embrace those opportunities to get stops and try to make it tough in those iso situations … and just do my job.”The likely MVP seeking out a former MVP for a 1-on-1 matchup, for the right to play in the NBA Finals. A pretty cool outcome, all thanks to how these juggernauts force and handle switches on defense.Check out our latest NBA predictions. read more

Muckahi Mining System set for underground testing in Q1 Torex Gold

first_imgThe new underground mining concept put forward by Torex Gold’s President and CEO Fred Stanford is gaining some traction at the company’s early-stage Media Luna project in Mexico, with the new technology potentially able to cut upfront capital requirements, reduce operating costs and decrease the time to commercial production.IM reported on the highlights of the latest preliminary economic assessment in an earlier story, which showed the after-tax IRR going from 27% to 46% using the Muckahi Mining System (MMS) concept. But, the filing of the latest technical report has brought out some more details.The report states on MMS: “The system challenges the status quo in many ways with the goal of establishing more efficient and cost effective alternatives to established mining processes.”The MMS requires the use of a one-boom jumbo, service platform, mucking machine and tramming conveyor to create a more continuous mining process that can accelerate return on investment. It also significantly reduces the ventilation needs in underground mines by using conveyors as the main transport solution, playing into the mine electrification theme that is gaining traction.Stanford, who is credited as the originator of the technology, explains the design rationale in the report:“The production system in a mine is effectively a serial set of processes, with the ultimate objective of delivering rock, at specification, to the processing facilities. Each process step will have a primary design objective of either transformation, transport, or storage. In some processes there will also be inadvertent, non-design, transformation. This inadvertent transformation is generally not a desired outcome (ore pass slough, oxidation, etc).“It is quite common for the ‘rates’ or ‘availability’ of processes in a serial set of processes to be out of alignment/coordination with each other. When this is the case, the productive capability of the entire system is reduced.“To increase the productive capability of the system, designers frequently insert storage processes between transformation and/or transport (T&T) processes. These storage processes serve to reduce the inter-dependence between T&T processes and thereby increase throughput. This can be an effective design feature to maximise output, but it is expensive.“In an underground mine these storage facilities, whether they are for rock or supplies, must be excavated and equipped, which consumes capital. They frequently also require re-handling, which consumes operating dollars. A design objective for Muckahi was to eliminate the need for storage processes by finding ways to bring into alignment the rates and availability of the entire set of T&T processes.”He continues: “If the quality (size) of the rock product from the primary blast is not adequate for downstream processes, then a secondary sizing process will need to be added to the ‘set of processes’. Having ore-passes in the mine design will also force a requirement for a secondary sizing process. This is due to the uncontrolled size of the wall rock that, over time, will slough into, and dilute, the ore product.“Secondary sizing processes, particularly underground crushers, are expensive and time consuming to build and expensive to operate. A design objective for Muckahi is to eliminate large size secondary size reduction processes and just deal with minor oversize management with mobile rocker breakers or ‘chunk’ blasting.”To materially reduce the capital, operating cost, and mine build schedule, the MMS design approach sought ways to reduce the number of process steps and make the remaining process steps more efficient.This involved eliminating secondary sizing processes that required ‘constructed’ facilities such as a crusher station – thereby eradicating the need for ore passes – cutting out all storage facilities, and replacing the current logistics model of one-way traffic in large tunnels, with two-way traffic in tunnels half of the size.Stanford said the MMS has been able to achieve all of these requirements on a conceptual level by using five solutions:Blasting rock down to a smaller size – if the rock is to go directly onto a conveyor, then the product of the primary blast must be in the range of 95% passing -400 mm. Achieving this specification is not a challenge for ‘short hole’ primary blasts, such as used in development or cut and fill production mining methods. For ‘long hole’ production methods, it will require much tighter control of drilling procedures, explosives placement, and detonator timing;Twin roof (back) mounted monorails in all tunnels – this technology from the European coal industry solves several of the design challenges. It provides a stable platform for ‘long and skinny’ loads, allows climbs up steep 30° ramps and two-way traffic (one rail for inbound traffic and the other for outbound). SMT Scharf Group and Becker Mining Systems are two companies currently supplying these systems to the mining industry;A new transport concept named a ‘Tramming Conveyor’ (pictured) – this machine deals with the ‘first mile’ from the face/drawpoint, when straight lines for conventional conveyors are not an option. The conveyor is end loaded at the drawpoint until the belt is fully loaded. The belt then stops ‘turning’ and the whole unit drives away on the outbound rail to the discharge point. At the discharge point, the belts starts turning again and discharges its load (conveyor-to-conveyor transfer). The unit then switches to the inbound rail and returns to the drawpoint. While it was away from the drawpoint, other units have been loaded – hence, one of the benefits of two-way traffic;Ramps at 30° instead of the conventional 7.5° – the rubber tyres on conventional equipment lose traction on gradients that are much steeper than 7.5°. The back-mounted monorails remove the need for rubber tyres, hence the ability to steepen the ramps to the 30° gradient that can be handled by the cog drive system;Twin tunnels in waste – the tunnels in a Muckahi mine are half the volume of the tunnels required for a 50 t truck in a conventional mine. Half the volume means less rock to remove, less ground support, fewer holes to drill and load in the face, etc. This means they can be driven much more quickly. In a Muckahi mine, there are also no muck bays to be driven, which reduces metres by approximately 20%. The net effect is that excavation rates in a 4 m x 4 m tunnel should be two to three times faster than in conventional tunnel of 5.5 m x 5.5 m.Torex said the concept is now shifting to the underground testing phase, with manufacturing of the first of the prototype machines underway in partnership with Medatech Engineering Services out of Canada. This could see the first trials underground at the company’s ELG mine in the March quarter.In summary, the key expected benefits of Muckahi are:Continuous muck handling system and the elimination of re-handle and storage;All-electric operation and significant reduction in ventilation requirements;Ability to travel on ±30° (58%) slope and major reduction in both permanent and operating development;Ability for bi-direction travel in 4m x 4m tunnel.last_img read more

10 minutes of Portal 2 from PAX East 2011

first_imgOne of the most widely anticipated games of 2011 is the next entry in the Portal series: Portal 2. Valve have certainly been teasing us with reminders it is coming in the form of a Valentine’s Day gift buyer’s guide last month, and video footage of it being played last year in both single-player and co-op form.The wait is nearly over, though, with the official release date set as April 21. Console gamers as well as PC and Mac owners will all get to play it on the same day. However, PC gamers will have an extra feature in the form of the ability to generate their own content for the game.For now, sit back and enjoy this 10 minute video which shows you the first few minutes of the game and introduces new character Cave Johnson, CEO of Aperture Science who is sure to add something different to the experience.The footage was shown at the recent PAX East 2011 event in Boston. It demonstrates a clear leap forward in the graphics being used in the game, and no doubt has evolved the mechanics beyond what the original offered.I was actually in two minds about watching this, as it does form a bit of a spoiler for the start of the game. But it really doesn’t give too much away and has a very funny moment where you are asked to respond by saying “yes” that is worth watching.Read more at Piki Geeklast_img read more

Elderly woman dies after falling from multistoreyed building in Ballygunge

first_imgKolkata: An elderly woman died after falling down from the roof of a multi-storeyed apartment at Ballygunge on Thursday morning. The deceased, identified as Jamini Desai (64), was a resident of Earle Street who had been living in the apartment for the last five years.The police are investigating to ascertain whether the fall was accidental or suicidal, with the local residents alleging that her family members were late in taking the lady to the hospital even after she fell from the roof. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal life”We were having a cup of tea in the tea stall adjacent to the apartment. Suddenly, we heard the noise of something falling on the ground. We found that the elderly woman was lying in a pool of blood. When we raised an alarm and called her family members, they came down and took her inside the house instead of rushing to the hospital. They did so after ten minutes,” said local resident Budheshwar Das.Das added that the woman was alive after falling from the roof and rushing to the hospital might have saved her.

10 Technologies That Are Changing the World

first_img Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now Futurists of the 1950s and ’60s predicted that by the 2000s, flying cars and airborne robots would be a part of our everyday lives. Instead, we live in a world dominated by live streaming, smartphones and social networks.Related: Make Innovation Systematic and Never Again Ask ‘Why Didn’t We Think of That?’While those forecasters didn’t quite get the timing right, they got the technology right. Today, we are at the brink of another technological boom. This time, technologies like self-driving vehicles and robot assistants are under development. Soon, these and the other exciting technologies described below will go mainstream, changing the world in the process.1. Voice assistantsIn four years, the majority of American households are expected to own a voice assistant device like an Amazon Echo or an Apple Homepod. Thanks to the power of artificial intelligence (AI), voice assistants will grow increasingly helpful.Even today, Amazon releases regular updates to Echo in order to help owners get more from the technology. The company recently reported seeing larger-than-expected gains from its voice assistant, which is why Amazon is now doubling down on the technology.Voice assistants are making a significant impact in markets across the globe, and some observers expect that in the future we will communicate with technology through voice rather than text.2. CrisprImagine a world where crushing genetic diseases like Huntington’s and cystic fibrosis can be cured. Thanks to crispr, genetic disease may be eliminated.CRISPR Cas-9 (an abbreviation standing for “Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats”) is a gene-splicing technology capable of finding and removing mutated sections of DNA. Once this material is eliminated, crispr technology can replace the mutated sections with non-mutated variants.As a result, crispr has the power to permanently eliminate certain types of genetic diseases from blood lines. The technology has already been used to eliminate cancer in some patients, and early results show that it may be possible to cure genetically caused blindness as well.3. Robot assistantsCompanies like Boston Dynamics have already developed a wide variety of robot assistants that can be used in factories or on the battlefield. The company originally started as an arm of MIT and has since pioneered the development of intelligent robots that operate effectively in the real world.Knightscope is another company working on a line of robot assistants for security applications. For example, its K5 robot features four cameras and can recognize 300 licenses plates per minute, per camera. It can also detect suspicious networks that may be operated by hackers.Related: How to Innovate for the Next 100 Years4. Augmented and mixed realityJust a few years ago, it was unclear whether augmented or mixed reality would take off. Given the fact that tech giants like Apple are investing billions of dollars in augmented reality hardware, it’s pretty clear that it’s only a matter of time before the tech goes mainstream.For example, Apple’s latest phones are equipped with augmented reality capabilities, and a recent report suggests that the company is working on an AR headset that will replace the iPhone in two to three years.5. Regenerative medicineThough it may sound like science fiction, doctors are already producing made-to-order body parts. To get started, doctors scrape cells off the body part in question and grow them in a petri dish. In time, the body part grows strong enough that it can be implanted inside the patient.One company, Organovo, has developed a printer capable of 3D printing body parts. In time, this new technology will become increasingly mainstream, providing patients with lifesaving organ replacements.6. Driverless vehiclesAutomakers like Tesla, General Motors and Volvo have already developed semi-autonomous vehicles. But self-driving technology is rapidly evolving. General Motors announced that it will launch a car that has no steering wheel or pedals by 2019.Uber, meanwhile, is leading the push for pilotless flying vehicles, and has teamed up with NASA to develop an air-traffic-control system. Uber is also working with aircraft manufacturers to develop prototypes, with the intention of launching a beta program in 2020.7. Reusable rocketsOne of the costliest aspects of space exploration is the building of sophisticated and powerful rockets capable of transporting thousands of pounds of equipment into space. The fact that we have figured out how to land rockets — even the large ones used to launch the Falcon Heavy — will help to reduce the cost of space travel.8. CryptocurrencyAt one point this year, Bitcoin was worth more than $19,000 per coin, and while the value of the cryptocurrency has since declined, a single coin is still worth thousands of dollars.Cryptocurrency may be controversial today, but it has steadily become increasingly mainstream. Some of the largest hedge funds are betting on Bitcoin — which is just the beginning of a cryptocurrency revolution.Platforms like TrustToken are poised to connect the global trading power of blockchains with real-world assets. On the TrustToken platform, the owners of an asset — a home, a small business or gold — would be able to sell factions of those assets, and coordinate the asset’s ownership through unique blockchain-based tokens. As a result, sellers can make illiquid assets liquid, and buyers can gain control of a diverse portfolio of assets.Other crypto platforms like HybridBlock are designed to give crypto enthusiasts greater access to silo-trading markets, helping to expand the industry to a new wave of crypto enthusiasts. By offering mobile-friendly products, HybridBlock is providing the Asia market with a new form of crypto education and the tools to execute crypto trades.9. Quantum computingThe typical computer uses a series of zeros and ones to communicate information. While today’s computers are quite powerful, they still have considerable limitations that make it difficult to process challenging machine-learning problems.Quantum computers rely on quantum bits to carry information. These bits can exist in a state which allow quantum computers to process challenging datasets much better than traditional computers do. As a result, quantum computing can help to produce serious machine-learning breakthroughs that might otherwise be impossible solve.While the technology is still in its early stages, companies like Microsoft and Google are investing billions in developing supercomputers capable of developing highly accurate predictive models. These models can be used in everything from self-driving cars to marketing campaigns.10. Artificial intelligence and automationSome of the world’s biggest brands are increasingly turning to automation in order to better serve customers and to reduce costs. Big-box retailers use automated warehouses to sort and ship products, while social media networks use automation to moderate comments, and credit card companies use automation to detect fraud.For example, Synapse is building a network that gives anyone the ability to contribute his or her data and train automation and machine-learning models. The implications here are massive, because a new AI economy, including decentralized blockchain AI, could change the way businesses operate and learn around the world.Related: How I Established a Culture of Virtual InnovationIndeed, it’s just a matter of time before that happens. 6 min read March 12, 2018 Enroll Now for Freelast_img read more

Indian women are major adventurous tourists in South Africa

first_imgAccording to data revealed by South African Tourism, Indian women have been found out to be the largest contributors to South Africa’s adventure tourism like bungee jumping, shark-cage diving and mountain hiking,  Hanneli Slabber, India Country Manager, South African Tourism, revealed that the demand for adventure activities is largely driven by “enthusiastic Indian woman travellers.” Indian women are the biggest participants in the adventure tourism sector in South Africa, with majority of them taking part in hardcore adventure, such as bungee jumping, sky diving, shark-cage diving and mountain hiking. In fact, she said, Indians are only the second from the top nationality to bungee jump off the Bloukrans Bridge and the third from the top nationality to go for shark-cage diving in South Africa.Further, Indian travellers visiting South Africa buy five to six adventure activities per day, which is comparatively much higher than tourists from other nationalities. Revealing the reason for this, she said South Africa takes pride in offering the most-value-for-money adventure activities coupled with top safety standards which plays an integral part for driving in the Indian tourists.last_img read more

30 companies owe €100m in VAT

first_imgBy Elias HazouAS MANY as 30 companies owe the state about €100m in VAT, according to data revealed by Politis yesterday.Of the 30 legal entities, two of them (or their directors) cannot be traced, while criminal prosecutions are pending against another seven.The data was prepared by tax authorities and handed to parliament at the latter’s request. The list of 30 largest corporate debtors includes investment companies, contractors, developers, banks, trading companies and football clubs. The tax data of individuals are not released due to privacy protection laws.According to Politis, the majority of these companies have challenged all or part of the calculated tax debt, and tax authorities anticipate that ultimately they will collect far less than the €100.3m owed.The biggest debtor by far is Blue Ocean Yacht Management Limited, owing €20.6m, followed by contractors Ch. Apostolides Ltd and A. Panayides Contracting Ltd at €18.9m. The former has filed an appeal with the Supreme Court, whereas the latter has filed an objection with the tax commissioner.Third down the list is Ocean Tankers Holdings Public Company Ltd with €7.7m; an objection before the tax commissioner is pending. Next is K&M (Famagusta) Developers and Constructions Ltd with €5.5m; the company has filed an appeal to the Supreme Court challenging the greater part of that amount.Criminal prosecutions are pending against seven corporations in VAT arrears. These are: Oliveron Investments Ltd (€2.8m), Global Value PLC (€1.9m), W Investments Ltd (€1.7m), Michalis Avraam & Andrew Andronikou (€1.7m), Raquel Ltd (€1.47m), Couvas Carton Industries Ltd (€1.1m), and Kyriacos Papavasiliou (Trading) Ltd (€1m).The two companies which cannot be traced are MK Digital World (Cyprus) Ltd, owing €1.7m, and Salih Konti Company Ltd which owes €1.3 but whose director is apparently currently residing in the occupied territories in the north.Also on the list is Wadnic Trading Limited – known for its implication in an ongoing criminal trial concerning a development in Dromolaxia. The company owes €1.34m.Now-defunct Cyprus Popular Bank Public Co Ltd owes €2.68m, and Bank of Cyprus Public Company Ltd €2.2m. Both have appeals pending before the Supreme Court.Top division football clubs feature heavily, although these fall under a special scheme involving partial ‘bailouts’ of tax arrears via state grants (for arrears between January 1999 to May 2007) and repayment of tax debts in installments for arrears between June 2007 and December 2013.Anorthosis football club owes the taxman €2.5m, Omonia Nicosia €1.5m, Ethnikos Achnas €1.3m, Apoel €1.2m and AEK Larnaca €1.13m.Back in June, parliament was told the state is owed €400m in unpaid VAT. The lion’s share– €156m –was owed by just 242 entities.According to the finance ministry, as of December 31, 2013 the VAT service is owed €421m. The total number of VAT dodgers was 23,860, of which 242 businesses/persons owe amounts over €100,000 which, added up, came to €156m.In addition to VAT arrears, the state is owed €525m in unpaid income tax. The Inland Revenue Department merged with the VAT Service in July to form the new Tax Department.In a bid to improve tax collection – a condition set by Cyprus’ international lenders – new legislation was enacted this year giving the taxman sweeping powers, including the right to seize debtors’ bank accounts as well as immovable assets and prevent debtors from selling or transferring real estate until they settle their dues. The action relates to tax arrears that are considered both final and recoverable.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementBad Digestion Slowing You Down?
