British Columbia stands firm in Trans Mountain fight

Business
May 17 (UPI) -- The federal Canadian government is putting investor interests above provincial issues with its support for the Trans Mountain pipeline, British Columbia said. Federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau said Wednesday the government would offset the risks from provincial opposition to expand the Trans Mountain oil pipeline to British Columbia. Citing shareholder risk from that opposition, pipeline company Kinder Morgan in early April said it might back out of the plans to triple the pipeline's capacity. That opposition, the company added, has led to increased provincial tensions. British Columbia has already enacted legislation that could limit the flow of the heavier type of oil carried by Trans Mountain. Premier John Horgan said in response to Ottawa's position that he has a ...

Why Pitch Perfect stands out in Hollywood

Pitch Perfect 3 is outstanding. Quite literally.Not only is the third instalment of the successful film franchise highly entertaining - but also highly unusual for Hollywood.Seeing an all-female ensemble cast in a storyline where the main objective isn't finding a boyfriend is something you don't often see.Which is perhaps why the movies have become so popular. "I distinctly remember seeing the first one in the cinema and just feeling so great afterwards," says Hailee Steinfeld, who joined the cast in Pitch Perfect 2 and reprises her role in the third."I loved every minute of it, loved the musical aspect, I thought the relationships within the movie were so interesting and fun.

ICO stands for Investor Caution Obligatory

ICO stands for Investor Caution Obligatory

Finance
HERE is the deal. You can buy an entry in a computer ledger issued by a startup company on the basis of an unregulated prospectus. It is called an “initial coin offering” or ICO. But though the ledger entry is called a coin, you cannot spend it in any shop. And whereas the use of the term ICO makes it sound like an IPO (initial public offering), the process whereby a firm lists on a stockmarket, coin ownership does not necessarily get you equity in the company concerned.This sounds like the kind of bargain that would appeal only to people who reply to e-mails from Nigerian princes offering to transfer millions to their accounts. But ICOs may well be the most popular investment craze since the dotcom boom of 1999-2000; even Paris Hilton, a celebrity heiress, has jumped on the bandwagon. The
