State officials said the Commission of Correction could issue a citation to New York City for failure to correct violations, and then hold a public hearing. If the city failed to provide evidence that it could bring Rikers into compliance, the state would have the option of moving to close the complex.

The semi literate boy from Cremona lived in an age when the love of objective knowledge had just awakened from a 1,000 year sleep enforced by the systematic abuse of faith and power. His world was 20 percent literate, but everyone passionately wanted to read.

The project is set to begin in 2016 and take 10 years to complete, adding almost $1.4 billion in estimated future sales for each SNC and Aecon.The revenues provide an 11 per cent boost to SNC $12.7 billion in work already awarded and for contracts in progress, as of the third quarter, and a 40 per cent increase to Aecon total backlog of $3.4 billion. But since the project is expected to take a decade, these revenues will be sprinkled on both companies earnings at a slower pace.the project has a sizable impact on both companies backlogs, analysts at CIBC World Markets said Monday in a note to clients, note that the annual benefit to revenues, earnings and cash flows is less significant given the long duration of the project.
