More Families Access New Affordable Housing in Middleton

first_imgMore seniors and persons with disabilities in Middleton have a new place to call home through an investment in affordable housing. Community Services Denise Peterson-Rafuse and MP Greg Kerr officially opened 15 new units today, Oct. 10, on Magee Drive. The $2.4-million project was funded by the provincial and federal governments through the Economic Stimulus Program. “These homes represent a new start for many families, allowing them to live better, healthier lives while maintaining their independence,” said Ms. Peterson-Rafuse. “We have made significant investments in safe, affordable housing over the past three years, helping over 240 seniors households. Projects like these help shape and strengthen our communities.” Magee Drive, which has units for seniors and persons with disabilities, is the second phase of affordable seniors’ housing on Magee Drive, with potential for more units in the future. Phase one, also with 15 row houses, was completed in 2003 with $2.2 million in federal and provincial support. “Through Economic Action Plan 2012, our government is taking concrete action to create jobs, growth and long-term prosperity,” said Mr. Kerr. “Funding projects like Magee Drive will not only improve the overall housing conditions for seniors and persons with disabilities in Middleton, but also help stimulate the local economy and create jobs.” The energy-efficient units are barrier-free with wide halls and doorways, roll-in showers, and tile and laminate flooring. The buildings are designed to meet or exceed the LEED silver standard for energy and water, and feature energy-efficient appliances and low-flow fixtures. The exterior is a low-maintenance durable wood fibre and concrete product. The federal and provincial government are contributing equally to the Economic Stimulus Program, an overall investment of $96 million under the amended Canada-Nova Scotia Affordable Housing Program Agreement. To date, under the Affordable Housing Program, more than 1,900 affordable housing units have been created or preserved in Nova Scotia.

One transgender applies at DU experts attribute this to lack of infrastructure

first_imgNew Delhi: Only one transgender candidate has applied for admission in Delhi University this year with experts attributing this dismal number to the lack of infrastructure including an absence of gender-neutral toilets in the varsity and the stigma attached to being identified as the third gender.According to officials, last year there were applications from transgender aspirants but none of them enrolled for regular courses. The varsity had introduced the “other” category in its admission forms in 2015 but there have been no admissions to the regular courses under the category. Also Read – Kejriwal ‘denied political clearance’ to attend climate meet in DenmarkThe varsity had introduced the “other” category in its admission forms in 2015 but there have been no admissions to the regular courses under the category. Rajesh from the Department of Adult Continuing Education and Extension said, “Around 15 transgender students had come to us with queries but they all had queries about School Of Open Learning and Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU). “They usually prefer to enrol as male or female in regular courses or for distance learning education.” He said that they face the problem of identity. After they are born, their families hand them over to ‘gurus’ who name them and start identifying them as a male or a female, he said.

There is no gender neutral toilet in the varsity,” he said. As many as 3,67,895 candidates registered on the varsity’s admission portal till June 22, of whom 2,58,388 proceeded and made payments. Under the newly-introduced EWS quota, 5,528 male candidates, 3,562 female candidates and one candidate from the third gender applied for admission. Equal rights activist Harish Iyer said he will write to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal about the issue. “There has to be an outreach and the onus comes on those who are included and not excluded. There has to be an assurance that they will not be teased. “If that one candidate seeks admission to a college of DU, the whole college, specially the teaching and non-teaching staff have to ensure that the student feels at ease and is accepted. The civil society also has to come together to address the issue,” he added.last_img read more

Evidence should trump emotion in Calgary Olympic bid discussion mayor

first_imgCALGARY – In the afterglow of Team Canada’s impressive hardware haul at the Pyeongchang Olympics, Calgary’s mayor says hard evidence and not warm, fuzzy emotions should drive the debate over whether to vie for the 2026 Winter Games.“Obviously people are very excited about the Olympics right now, particularly after the tremendous showing of Team Canada in Pyeongchang,” Naheed Nenshi said Monday.“It’s actually one of the reasons why I didn’t want to do a ton of public engagement during the Olympics, because I’d like cooler heads to prevail as we continue to have this discussion.”Nenshi went on a fact-finding trip to South Korea earlier this month along with other municipal and provincial politicians.Canada brought home a record 29 medals — 11 gold, eight silver and 10 bronze — in Pyeongchang. Its next-best medal count was during the 2010 Games in Vancouver and Whistler, B.C., when it won 26.Nenshi said it would be great to have some time for the enthusiasm to cool down, but decisions need to be made soon.Nenshi said city council has until late spring to make a firm call on whether or not it’s serious about a bid.“By the end of June, we really should have an idea of what the finances look like and what the commitment of the federal and provincial governments would be.”The province is still chewing on the issue, Alberta Premier Rachel Notely told reporters in Edmonton.“There are a lot of pros and cons to it, and we have to look at value for dollars and things like that,” she said.The Calgary Bid Exploration Committee has pegged the cost of holding the Games at $4.6 billion, with revenues covering about half that.Coun. Jeromy Farkas said while he understands the emotional appeal of a Calgary bid, he’s skeptical about whether it’s the best use of government money.“I’m really concerned that we’re barrelling down a pre-determined outcome where it’s becoming harder and harder to say no,” he said.Concordia University sports economist Moshe Lander said emotion has been driving the debate since well before Canada started racking up the wins in South Korea.He said post-Pyeongchang enthusiasm is unlikely to sway anyone already dead-set against or fervently in favour of a 2026 bid, but it may bring some fence-sitters into the pro camp.“I think the last two weeks is going to do nothing other than encourage them,” Lander said.Lander said Calgary should not bid for the Olympics, but is likely to make that mistake anyway.“This is a train that’s gathered too much momentum now,” Lander said, adding other bidders are unlikely to stand in its way.“If Calgary wants to bid on the Games, they’re going to get it.”Milena Parent, an expert in sports governance at the University of Ottawa, said the case should be made based on the city’s vision for itself 20 or 30 years into the future, rather than just hard dollars and cents.There are too many variables for economic analyses to accurately predict the long-term impacts in advance of a bid, she suggested.Rather, Calgary needs to ask whether hosting the games would bring benefits on less tangible things, like civic pride or skills development.“If Calgary can answer this question, I think it would go a long way to being able to determine whether or not this is the right strategy to get what it wants,” Parent said.last_img read more

Yoko Ono Supports Imagine Theres No Hunger Campaign

first_imgIn his iconic song “IMAGINE,” John Lennon asked us all to picture a world free from hunger – a message that lives on today through the global IMAGINE THERE’S NO HUNGER campaign.For a fifth year artist and musician Yoko Ono Lennon generously lends her support to Hard Rock International and WhyHunger for IMAGINE THERE’S NO HUNGER, a global campaign to combat childhood hunger and poverty through the backing of sustainable agriculture education and feeding programs for children and families in need.Proceeds from Hard Rock’s campaign will directly benefit WhyHunger and its grassroots partners worldwide, working to advance long-term solutions to hunger and poverty by supporting community-based organizations that empower individuals and build self-reliance.“IMAGINE THERE’S NO HUNGER keeps the spirit of John’s song ‘Imagine’ alive today,” said Yoko Ono Lennon. “The campaign does more than imagine a world without hunger, it works every day to end a problem that affects millions of children and families around the globe.”In 2012, the co-producers of New Year’s Eve in Times Square, Countdown Entertainment and the Times Square Alliance are also lending their support to the campaign. The partnership highlights an IMAGINE THERE’S NO HUNGER presence in Times Square during the iconic, internationally viewed event, and will serve to increase and extend visibility for the campaign through the end of the holiday season. One of the annual highlights of the New Year’s Eve in Times Square extravaganza has been the performance, just prior to midnight, of “Imagine.” In recent years, it has been sung live by multi-platinum recording artists such as Cee Lo Green and Taio Cruz.“During my five years as a program ambassador I have traveled with WhyHunger, visited their grassroots partners and seen firsthand the needs of families worldwide, families that even in 2012 are going hungry,” said Hamish Dodds, president and CEO, Hard Rock International, and Global Ambassador for WhyHunger. “Through the IMAGINE campaign Hard Rock and WhyHunger have helped communities grow enough food to provide more than 5.5 million meals to children in 15 different countries and taught thousands of others techniques for sustained food production for a future free of hunger.”The IMAGINE THERE’S NO HUNGER program launches in November 2012 continues throughout December 2012 with limited-edition merchandise, food drives, direct donations by texting IMAGINE to 50555, an employee ambassador contest and live music events at locations worldwide, featuring talent like The Script. Proceeds from the campaign will be donated directly to WhyHunger to benefit local grassroots partners, including the Pathfinder Academy in Kenya; the Pattanarak Foundation in Thailand; City of Joy in India, Tohono O’odham Community Action in Sells, Arizona , USA and the Peasant Movement of Papaye (MPP) in Haiti. Each grassroots partner focuses on children living in poverty and helps teach sustainable farming and entrepreneurial skills for the future.Additionally, donations to the “IMAGINE THERE’S NO HUNGER” campaign will also go to support WhyHunger’s long-time partners in the New York and New Jersey area post Hurricane Sandy. These organizations are on the front lines, providing food, water and critical services to their neighbors in the aftermath of the storm and aiding in their long-term recovery. Area partners include Added Value in Red Hook, Brooklyn and the Community FoodBank of New Jersey.“Our approach is centered on the belief that the solutions and power needed to end hunger and poverty are found within local communities, at the grassroots level,” said Bill Ayres, founder and executive director of WhyHunger. “With incredible partners like Yoko Ono Lennon, Hard Rock International and the thousands of individuals who get involved in the IMAGINE THERE’S NO HUNGER campaign each year, we provide the support and resources needed to help some of the most innovative grassroots partners around the world build long-lasting, sustainable solutions to end hunger in their communities.”“For many New Year’s Eve is a time when people imagine a better life for themselves, for others, or for those around the world,” said Tim Tompkins, President of the Times Square Alliance. “With the countdown to New Year’s Eve approaching, we hope that people will resolve to help end hunger through this important partnership with WhyHunger and Hard Rock International.”Fans are encouraged to share their thoughts and IMAGINE experiences via social media by sending messages, photos and videos to the official channels for the 2012 IMAGINE THERE’S NO HUNGER campaign: Facebook.com/HardRock or Twitter.com/HardRock, and by utilizing the hashtag #IMAGINENOHUNGER.$1 Feeds a Child for a Day, $10 Helps a Family Start a Food GardenThrough the IMAGINE THERE’S NO HUNGER campaign every dollar makes an impact.

Morocco Should Avoid Confrontation With the UN, Use Diplomacy to Its…

New York – The biased and undiplomatic statements United Nations Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, made last weekend with regards to the Western Sahara conflict have caused controversy in Morocco and resulted in an unprecedented mobilization of the Moroccan people.When Ban Ki-moon brought up the question of a referendum for the territory, in total disregard of the political framework set out by Security Council Resolution 1754 passed in April 2007, he not only set the political process back a decade, but he also violated his mandate as Secretary General. His use of the term “occupation” when referring to Morocco’s sovereignty over the territory was incorrect and inconsistent with past UN precedent. This is the first time a sitting UNSG has overstepped the mandate entrusted to him by the Security Council and used a term that has never been used is UN terminology to refer to the status of the Western Sahara.That Moroccans have reacted to these statements with outrage and protest is understandable and reflects their belief in their country’s territorial integrity, and their determination to fight against all those who are intent on threatening Morocco’s stability. The communique issued by the Moroccan government denouncing Ban Ki-moon’s unfriendly statements and his bias in favor of one of the parties to the conflict, in a flagrant violation of the scope of his mandate, likewise reflects Morocco’s serious and unwavering commitment to its sovereign integrity.Morocco should use diplomacy to its advantage Now that tempers have cooled, the seriousness of the situation requires swift action, foresight, and a proactive approach. Some analysts have overreacted, calling on the Moroccan government to end to its cooperation with the United Nations in the political process the UN has been leading since 1991.Should Morocco stop cooperating with the United Nations and withdraw from the UN political process? What implications would this decision entail for Morocco in the short, medium, and long term? Or, would Morocco be better off playing the game of diplomacy, acting with confidence, and working to convince the influential powers within the UN and world public opinion that Morocco’s approach is the right one?The answer is clear. Morocco should steer away from any temptation to overreact to Ban Ki-moon’s statements and, thus, magnify their importance. While the SG’s statements constitute an unprecedented deviation from the political process set out by the Security Council and denote a clear bias in favor of the Polisario, this new twist in the long history of the conflict should not lead one to overlook the fact that, at the end of the day, the UN chief’s job is to play the role of mediator between the parties. It is not to set policy or decide what approach should be followed in order to achieve a mutually acceptable political solution, in line with all the resolutions adopted by the UN main body since April 2007.  Nor should Moroccans forget that Ban Ki-moon will leave his post at the end of the year. It is unlikely that he will have any impact on the political process or effect a change in the Security Council’s framework before he leaves office.Morocco’s commitment to the United Nations with regard to the territorial dispute in which it is pitted against Algeria and the Polisario requires a wise and forward looking strategy likely to help it achieve progress towards garnering the support of an increased number of countries and convince them that the right way to put an end to the conflict is by means of finding a middle ground solution that saves the face of all parties involved.Morocco should not use the statements Ban Ki-moon made as an excuse to withdraw from the political process nor to refrain from cooperating with the UN chief’s personal envoy. First of all, as a chief party to the conflict, Morocco is bound by the UN process and cannot reject it. Such a decision could have a negative impact on Morocco’s position on the world stage. In addition, such a step would backfire and could cause Morocco to be isolated at the international level. Such a scenario would constitute the golden opportunity the Polisario and Algeria have been waiting for to accuse Morocco of being unwilling to move the political process forward.Need to act with confidence and composureRather than ending its cooperation with the United Nations, Morocco should instead act with confidence and composure, and use diplomacy to its advantage as it has always done. As the mandate of the UN mission in the Western Sahara comes up for renewal next April and the UN chief submits his report to the Security Council in the coming three weeks, Morocco should avoid direct confrontation with the United Nations. It would be counterproductive for the Moroccan government to refuse to receive the Personal Envoy of the Secretary-General at the end of this month.To the contrary, Morocco should receive him with due regard and use the same tactics the UN chief and his personal envoy have been engaging in. Whether Morocco receives him or not, Ross has never been and will never be the right person to play the role of impartial mediator. however, he is the designated Personal Envoy. Just as the Moroccan saying goes, one should play with a liar until he is caught by his own lies and Morocco should play by the rules of diplomacy.Using diplomacy and politics to one’s advantage is an art that requires subtlety, strategy, and sometimes subterfuge. Morocco should act accordingly and avoid giving adversaries any opportunity to claim that it is hampering the political process. At the end of the day, since Algeria and the Polisario have not been able to put any constructive proposal on the negotiating table, all they can wish for is a misstep by Morocco, thus potentially precipitating a call by the Security Council to make more concessions in light of Morocco’s supposed intransigence.Morocco should deal with the Secretary-General and his Personal Envoy with subtlety and work to win the sympathy of influential countries. Moroccans should not be oblivious of the fact that what matters in this case is winning the support of the Security Council, especially the veto-wielding countries. The more these countries understand the historical facts that support Morocco’s claims to the territory, the stronger Morocco’s position will be.What is at stake for Morocco is of critical importance for the country’s future, unity and stability, and any decisions should take those fundamental elements into account. Diplomatic decisions should not be made in anger or overreaction. They should rather be made with composure and foresight.Need to spell out the autonomy proposalMorocco has everything behind it to win this diplomatic war. It has presented an autonomy plan that has been hailed by the Security Council as “serious, realistic and credible,” while the proposal of the other party received no such support. Morocco also has the historical facts necessary to convince the international community that is defending a just cause. It has the most prominent position at the international level in promoting stability in North Africa and the Middle East, not only for purposes of combating international terrorism, but also for promoting coexistence between cultures and civilizations.  It has been doing so for centuries.Moroccan diplomacy should no longer limit itself to mentioning Morocco’s autonomy plan in every international meeting. Rather, it should rather spell it out and explain to the international community to what extent Morocco’s position is in line with international law and the relevant General Assembly resolutions on self-determination, especially Resolution 2625 (XXV) of 24 October 1970. Likewise, in order to counterbalance Algeria’s and the Polisario’s accusations that Morocco has exploited the natural resources of the territory, Morocco should tout and publicize in detail the economic projects it has been launching to turn the region into an economic hub and a link between the rest of Morocco and Sub-Saharan Africa. Merely referencing these facts without providing real and concrete data will not be enough to advance Morocco’s position.What is needed is a forward looking, well thought-out campaign to showcase all the elements Morocco has in its favor to garner the support of the international community and convince the world that the best way forward is the Moroccan autonomy plan.Morocco should break free from the bygone era of reaction and overreaction. New developments in the conflict, such as the recent diplomatic row with Sweden, the political crisis with the European Union over the agriculture agreement, and the current tension with the UN secretariat, require a more proactive and aggressive strategy in which Morocco uses all its resources to deal a blow to Algeria and the Polisario, weaken them, and force them to compromise.The Moroccan parliament, Moroccan political parties, and Moroccan civil society should not [work piece meal, or wait for a crisis to hit to continue making routine statements that do nothing to further a resolution. Instead, they should show leadership, creativity, and readiness to work throughout the year, based on a clear strategy with coordination by the government. Political parties and civil society must work together This issue is of such critical importance to Morocco that everybody must be armed with the facts that give credibility to Morocco’s position.Moroccan diplomacy has matured enough by now to take the right approach that will eventually strengthen Morocco’s position and help it put an end to the conflict in line with its interests in respecting the sovereignty over its territory. King Mohammed VI’s visit to Russia this Sunday is the best tool to secure the support of influential countries and thwart the schemes and stratagems of Morocco’s adversaries.Samir Bennis is the co-founder of and editor-in-chief of Morocco World News.

Stocks higher on solid economic data commodity gains

The Toronto stock market was higher Tuesday amid strong U.S. economic data but sentiment was still weighed down by concern about central banks and interest rates.The S&P/TSX composite index gained 119.61 points to 11,956.47 following a string of losses on concerns about the prospect of the U.S. Federal Reserve turning off the stimulus taps as well as trouble in China’s credit system.The Canadian dollar slipped 0.27 of a cent to 95.1 cents US.U.S. indexes were also positive with the Dow industrials up 104.64 points to 14,764.2, the Nasdaq up 16.65 points to 3,337.4 and the S&P 500 index climbed 12.29 points to 1,585.38.The Standard & Poor’s/Case-Shiller 20-city home price index shows that U.S. home prices jumped 12.1 per cent in April from a year ago. The index also showed a 2.5 per cent increase in April from March, the biggest month-over-month gain on records dating back to 2000.Also, the U.S. Commerce Department said new home sales rose 2.1 per cent last month compared with April to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 476,000, the highest level since July 2008.Other data showed that orders for durable goods increased 3.6 per cent last month, matching April’s gain, but it was also much stronger than most economists had expected.Americans’ confidence in the economy rose to its highest level in more than five years, bolstered by a more optimistic outlook for hiring. The New York-based Conference Board says its U.S. consumer confidence index jumped to 81.4 in June from 74.3 in May.Markets have sold off partly on worries that the U.S. Federal Reserve is prepared to put the brakes on its program of bond buying. Those US$85 billion of purchases every month have kept long-term rates low and helped many stock markets to rise sharply this year.Analysts find the reaction to the move puzzling since a Fed exit from the program means economic conditions are improving.“They said they may taper (bond purchases), and tapering is not a rate hike,” said Kevin Headland, director portfolio advisory group at Manulife Asset Management. “It’s just easing a bit off the gas pedal and that’s not bad, it’s actually the transitionary handover from the Fed putting the gas in the engine to the consumer and the actual economy running on its own. And that’s not a bad thing at all.”Rising bond yields have also spooked markets. Yields spiked, up to 2.58 per cent Tuesday morning, which is almost a two-year high. The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury stood at 2.25 per cent last Wednesday before Fed chairman Ben Bernanke indicated that the Fed could start winding up the bond buying program later this year.Markets were further rattled after China raised its interbank lending rate — the interest rate that banks must pay to borrow from each other — to over 13 per cent as part of an effort to trim off-balance-sheet lending.Markets feared the move could hurt economic growth. China’s major state-owned banks are unwilling to lend to any but their biggest clients, so the vast majority of smaller businesses must rely on informal lending.Traders were reassured on that front Tuesday after comments from the People’s Bank of China and other key government agencies. The central bank promised “liquidity support” if needed after a shortage of money in credit markets caused the interbank rate to spike last week. That caused Chinese stock markets to plunge Monday on fears the world’s second-largest economy might face a credit crisis.The bank appeared to soften its tougher line of Monday, when it said markets had adequate liquidity and blamed the credit crunch on mismanagement by banks.Traders also took in some major acquisition news in the health care sector.Two of Canada’s largest medical lab operators will be combined under a $1.22 billion friendly takeover deal backed by one of Ontario’s largest public sector pension funds. LifeLabs Medical Laboratory Services will pay $10.75 per share cash and assume $255 million of debt to acquire all of CML HealthCare Inc. of Mississauga, Ont. (TSX:CLC). CML shares jumped $3.41 to $10.61.Several major financial services companies, including Royal Bank of Canada (TSX:RY), are planning to set up a new Canadian stock market. The venture, to be called Aequitas Innovations Inc., would be an alternative to the Toronto Stock Exchange and other markets owned by TMX Group Inc. (TSX:X). TMX shares dropped 33 cents to $43.47.The information technology sector was the biggest percentage advancer, up two per cent. BlackBerry (TSX:BB) was ahead 36 cents to $15.11 as the company launched a business service for corporate and government workers with Google Android and Apple smartphones. Called the Secure Work Space, it allows these users to separate their data and work apps, such as email and calendars, from their personal apps, bringing a greater level of security.Commodity prices were mainly higher following a series of steep losses caused by demand concerns and the higher U.S. currency. The TSX base metals component rose 1.6 per cent as the July copper contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange was ahead six cents at US$3.08 a pound. First Quantum Minerals (TSX:FM) advanced 29 cents to C$14.58 while Teck Resources (TSX:TCK.B) improved by 38 cents to $21.60.August crude on the Nymex was 51 cents higher to US$95.69 a barrel and the energy sector rose almost one per cent. Canadian Natural Resources (TSX:CNQ) was ahead 40 cents to C$29.75.Consumer discretionary stocks also advanced with auto parts maker Magna International (TSX:MG) up 85 cents to $71.46.The gold sector was the only decliner, down a slight 0.2 per cent while August bullion dipped $2.20 to US$1,274.90 an ounce. Iamgold (TSX:IMG) was up five cents to C$4.34.European bourses were positive as London’s FTSE 100 index rose 1.36 per cent, Frankfurt’s DAX and the Paris CAC 40 gained 1.5 per cent. read more

Cascades is closing down a Quebec paper plant leaving 175 out of

KINGSEY FALLS, Que. — Cascades is ending its production of kraft paper with the closure this fall of a paper plant in East Angus, Que., affecting 175 jobs.The recycled paper and packaging company says the closure to take place by Oct. 3 is due to unfavourable market conditions and the inability to finalize a sale of the plant.Cascades says it has been unable to remain competitive amid weak market conditions and the decision by competitors to convert their newsprint paper machines to produce kraft paper, an oatmeal-coloured paper used for promotional materials and for some fast food wrapping.Employees were told last November that the company would exit the kraft business, but attempts were made to sell the plant and save the jobs.The company says it worked with the Quebec government to develop a financial package, but the project was abandoned because of a lack of new investors.The paper plant began operations in 1881 and was bought by Cascades in 1983.The closure doesn’t affect its coated boxboard manufacturing plant, also located in the same Eastern Townships community.Cascades says its strategy is to focus on growth in the packaging, tissue paper and recovery sectors.The company announced earlier this month the sale of its fine papers division to Rolland Enterprises Inc., a subsidiary of H.I.G. Capital, for $39.5 million. read more

Japanese leader pledges to build close relations with independent East Timor

In a joint press statement, Prime Minister Koizumi and Chief Minister Mari Alkatiri expressed their common determination to establish “a favourable and close future-orientated relationship between Japan and East Timor after its independence.” Earlier during his meeting with the Chief Minister, Mr. Koizumi said that Japan would continue to actively support East Timor’s national reconciliation and nation-building activities, and pledged to help East Timor build strong relations with other countries in the region. In addition to meeting with Mr. Alkatiri, Mr. Koizumi’s five-hour visit included talks with President-elect Xanana Gusmão and Sergio Vieira de Mello, the head of the UN Transitional Administration (UNTAET). Before leaving late this afternoon, Mr. Koizumi addressed some 40 members of the Japanese Engineering Group based on the outskirts of Dili. The Prime Minister thanked the peacekeepers for their concrete action in fulfilling what he said was Japan’s important role on the international stage and for cooperating with peacekeepers from other countries for the sake of peace. Earlier this year, 690 soldiers from the Japanese Ground Self Defence Force Engineering Group arrived in East Timor to replace departing Pakistani and Bangladeshi engineers as part of the ongoing downsizing of the UN peacekeeping force. Meanwhile in New York, the Security Council wrapped up a debate on East Timor that had begun on Friday. Numerous speakers hailed the territory’s impending independence – set for 20 May – and voiced support for its institutions and leaders, including President-Elect Xanana Gusmao, who addressed the Council last week. Welcoming plans to set up the UN Mission of Support in East Timor (UNMISET) to succeed UNTAET, speakers stressed the importance of helping the fledgling country to face the many challenges ahead, including security, refugee returns and development. Addressing participants at the close of the session, the UN Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping, Jean-Marie Guhénno, voiced gratitude to all who had backed the follow-on mission. “Your support is very much appreciated and I’m sure will facilitate the timely establishment of UNMISET,” he said. read more

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Keith Leslie, The Canadian Press Posted Jun 12, 2013 9:24 am MDT Former Ontario premier Dalton McGuinty resigning as MPP for Ottawa South TORONTO – Premier Kathleen Wynne praised Dalton McGuinty Wednesday as “an unwavering political force,” but Ontario’s opposition parties said the former premier was quitting politics under a cloud of scandal and leaving a legacy of broken promises.Word of McGuinty’s resignation leaked Tuesday night, upstaging Wynne’s first big accomplishment as premier — passage of the minority government’s budget.The former premier issued a statement Wednesday saying he was resigning his Ottawa seat after nearly 23 years.“The end of this session marks an opportune time for me to bring to a close my service to the people of Ottawa South,” McGuinty said.“I am proud to have been Ontario’s first premier from Ottawa, and proud to have drawn my life’s lessons and values from my parents’ home in Alta Vista.”Wynne lauded McGuinty for serving the public with “vision and determination” and talked about his many accomplishments.“He reminded us that government could build us up through investments in education, health care, research and innovation,” she said in a statement.“He steered this province through a global recession and three general elections.”Asked about McGuinty’s legacy, Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak said it was one of debt, waste and corruption.“If you like what Dalton McGuinty has done to the province, you’re in for even more of it under Kathleen Wynne,” Hudak said.The New Democrats said McGuinty’s legacy was one of broken promises, from the implementation of the health care tax in his first year up to his resignation as an MPP when he promised to stay until the next general election.McGuinty “did more harm than good,” said NDP critic Peter Tabuns.The NDP questioned the timing of McGuinty’s announcement, just days after the provincial police launched a criminal probe into the destruction of emails about the cancellation of two gas plants by senior Liberal staff.“The last time things got really hot on the gas plant file, he prorogued parliament and said he was not going to be premier any longer,” said Tabuns.“The events of the last few days have ratched that up substantially, and he takes the next step and resigns his seat.”Both opposition parties accuse the Liberals of deleting the email accounts to cover up the cost of cancelling gas plants in Oakville and Mississauga, which has ballooned to $585 million.In a statement issued last Friday McGuinty denied he had ordered his staff to destroy government records on the gas plants in violation of the law.The Tories and NDP want McGuinty to appear again at justice committee hearings into the gas plants to answer questions under oath about the mass deletions of emails.McGuinty’s two-page resignation statement makes no mention of his controversial decisions to cancel the two gas plants — a move the opposition says was aimed at saving Liberal seats in the 2011 election, when his party was reduced to a minority government.“I leave politics with my idealism intact and a deep sense of gratitude for the opportunity to have served in public life,” wrote McGuinty.“It has been my greatest honour and privilege to follow in my father’s footsteps.”Dalton McGuinty Sr. represented Ottawa-South until his death in 1990, when his son successfully ran to replace him.The Liberals have scheduled a nomination meeting for June 20 in Ottawa South to pick a candidate to replace McGuinty in a byelection.Wynne has six months to call the vote, but is expected to call it later this summer because she faces an Aug. 15 deadline to call byelections in Windsor and London to replace former finance minister Dwight Duncan and former energy minister Chris Bentley. Both men quit after Wynne was sworn in as premier in February. read more

UN food relief agency provides logistics support to boost earthquake response in

WFP is initially deploying four experts to support needs assessments, warehouse management and the swift delivery of relief supplies to the most-affected people, the agency said in a press release. “Logistics is the backbone of any emergency response,” said Stephen Anderson, Director of the WFP Japan Office. “We are proud to do our part to help the affected people by deploying logistics expertise.” The activities will be implemented in coordination with the Japan Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster, a coordinating body supporting relief work by authorities, non-governmental organizations and the private sector. In addition, WFP is providing large mobile warehouses, including two that will be set up immediately in the severely-affected towns of Ozu and Kashima, to store relief items and as a volunteer centre. WFP launched the two-month operation – which is estimated to cost $600,000 – when the request came from the Kumamoto prefectural government on 26 April, and the agency said it stands ready to expand its support if required. Two major earthquakes and hundreds of aftershocks struck the prefectures of Kumamoto, Oita and surrounding areas on 14 and 16 April, resulting in 66 deaths and more than 190,000 evacuees at its peak, according to official figures. While local authorities are putting significant effort into the response, logistical challenges in the management of relief supplies that are pouring in have been reported, WFP noted. This is the second time that WFP has provided assistance in Japan. In 2011, following the devastating earthquake and massive tsunami that hit the northern region of Tohoku, WFP deployed 27 staff members to organize transportation of relief items, establish logistics hubs with mobile warehouses and support relief activities of non-governmental organizations on the ground. read more

Bangkok floods inevitable

first_imgThe Thailand floods are set to hit the city of Bangkok threatening ancient temples and palaces and, “killing the heart of the tourism trade for this South East Asian metropolis,” declared the Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra. “We cannot hold the water back forever,” Ms Yingluck said, “the longer we block the water, the higher it gets.” The Thai Government has to choose which parts of the city it will allow water to travel through to minimise the impact on Bangkok. Even though the armed forces and thousands of volunteers are working frantically to protect the city and the country, the floods have already claimed the lives of 315 people having swamped a third of Thailand. There is also risk that foreigners could be trapped, by staying in tourist sites affected by floods. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Worlds Largest Bee Rediscovered in Wild

first_img Despite its massive wingspan and hulking body, the world’s largest bee has been lost to science since 1981.Until a search team rediscovered the species—known as Wallace’s giant bee (Megachile pluto)—earlier this year in the Indonesian islands.“It was absolutely breathtaking to see this ‘flying bulldog’ of an insect that we weren’t sure existed anymore, to have real proof right there in front of us in the wild,” according to Clay Bolt, a natural history photographer specializing in bees.Global Wildlife Conservation (GWC) researchers spent five days in the North Moluccas, where they observed dozens of termite mounds—home to the female giant bee.But it wasn’t until the last day that the team found a single female Wallace’s giant bee living in an arboreal termites’ nest in a tree, about eight feet off the ground.Eli Wyman with one of the only known Wallace’s giant bee samples (via Clay Bolt)“To actually see how beautiful and big the species is in life, to hear the sound of its giant wings thrumming as it flew past my head, was just incredible,” Bolt, who captured the insects on film, said in a statement. “My dream is to now use this rediscovery to elevate this bee to a symbol of conservation in this part of Indonesia, and a point of pride for the locals there.”British naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace discovered the bizarre species on his last day exploring the tropical Indonesian island of Bacan in 1858.He described the female—about as long as an adult human’s thumb, and four times larger than a European honeybee—as a “large, black, wasp-like insect, with immense jaws like a stag beetle.”It would be another 120 before the creepy critters were seen again, when entomologist Adam Messer rediscovered them in 1981 on three Indonesian islands. He observed the species’ behavior, including how it uses giant mandibles to gather resin and wood for nests.“Messer’s rediscovery gave us some insight, but we still know next to nothing about this extraordinary insect,” trip member and bee expert Eli Wyman, an entomologist at Princeton University, said. “I hope this rediscovery will spark future research that will give us a deeper understanding of the life history of this very unique bee and inform any future efforts to protect it from extinction.”Simon Robson, honorary professor of biology at the University of Sydney and Central Queensland University in Australia, with Wallace’s giant bee (Megachile pluto) (via Clay Bolt)Here’s to hoping it doesn’t take another 120 years to find them again.Wallace’s giant bees, however, may not even last that long.Dependent on lowland forests—like those being cut down for agriculture in Indonesia—the rare bees are are susceptible to the expected “bug apocalypse,” which could wipe out as many as 40 percent of insect species over the next few decades.Scientists are already looking for Wallace’s giant bee in other locations; conservationists are also pushing for legal protections for the insect.“The bee’s protection moving forward is going to rely first on the appropriate government officials and stakeholders knowing that [it] even exists, and then their willingness to help protect it,” according to Robin Moore, head of GWC’s Search for Lost Species. “By making the bee a world-famous flagship for conservation, we are confident that the species has a brighter future than if we just let it quietly be collected into oblivion.”A documentary film about Wallace’s giant bee is currently in production.This is the second rediscovery of one of GWC’s top 25 most-wanted species in its Search for Lost Species program.More on Geek.com:Bees Can Do Basic ArithmeticHere’s How Bees Stay Cool on a Hot Summer DaySix New Species of ‘Superhero’ Catfish Discovered in Amazon McDonald’s Turns Billboards Into Bee HotelsBentley Motors Creates Buzz As It Enters Honey Business Stay on targetlast_img read more

Doctor Who Underrated Villain of the Week Smilers

first_img ‘Doctor Who’ Underrated Villain of the Week: Mire’Doctor Who’ Underrated Villain of the Week: Zygon Stay on target Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.center_img You know Daleks and Davros and Missy the Master, Angels and Silence hell-bent on disaster. But do you recall the most underrated Doctor Who villains of all?Each week, I will dig into the depths of the Whoniverse to examine one rejected, misjudged, or altogether forgotten big bad. This porcelain profligate is not to be trusted.Though the man above might say hello, expect no love from the beast below (via BBC)SMILERSFirst appearance: “The Beast Below” (2010)—season 2, episode 5Home environment: Starship UKDoctor: EleventhCompanion: Amy PondSince the first time I saw Zoltar grant 12-year-old Josh Baskin’s wish in Big, I wanted an antique arcade fortune teller machine for myself.Until I saw “The Beast Below.” Now I get anxious even walking past a carnival grounds.The Steven Moffat-penned episode provides our first real glimpse at the Eleventh Doctor as a spiteful Time Lord. And Amy Pond’s sleepwear.Amy’s first trip in the TARDIS lands the pair in the 29th century, where all of the United Kingdom (apart from bonnie Scotland, which “wanted their own ship”—a surprisingly prescient comment by Moffat) live aboard the Starship UK.But something’s not right: People are scared of “the smiling fellows in the booths,” and no one seems to notice the little girl crying—”crying silently.”Amy stalks calms the child—young Mandy (christened, I can only hope, after Barry Manilow’s 1973 No. 1 hit of the same name)—who warns of the robot-like Smilers and monk-ish Winders that maintain order on the ship.Reminiscent of the clockwork repair droids stalking young Reinette aboard the SS Madame de Pompadour, with their sculpted grins and painted-on faces, the Smilers serve primarily as ship security, but also play the part of aide and teacher. When someone (like little ginger Timmy) breaks the rules or is simply deemed unnecessary, they are dropped into a hellish hole in the ground, never to be seen again.Winder division one, reporting for duty (and not happy about it) (via BBC)Still trying to prove her worth as part of Team TARDIS, Amy nonchalantly investigates, and is soon met by a group of cyborg police officers (labeled Winders, I suppose, for their twisting heads—one side unassuming human, the other hideous monster).Elsewhere, the Doctor is staying out of trouble (“badly”) in the control room, where the power couplings are dummies, and the walls are hollow.“If I didn’t know better,” he hypothesizes, “I’d say there was…”“No engine at all,” a masked woman, who goes by Liz 10 and seems to know the professorial alien, chimes in.So, how does one travel among the stars on a spaceship that could never fly?By torturing an endangered Star Whale.Upon turning 16, every Starship UK passenger is authorized to watch a film repeating the “truth” of their vessel: If enough people choose to release the giant creature quarterbacking the ship, their floating colony—and everyone on it—will be destroyed.Protest and face your fate, or choose to forget (as Amy did), and continue living, unburdened by the reality of this nationalistic land.You wouldn’t like the Smilers when they’re angry (via BBC)“Once, there were millions of them. They lived in the depths of space and, according to legend, guided the early space travelers through the asteroid belts,” Queen Elizabeth the Tenth explains in a recorded video. “This one, as far as we are aware, is the last of its kind. And what we have done to it breaks my heart.”When deadly solar flares forced humanity to evacuate Earth, “it came, like a miracle”: The last of the Star Whales, trapped, a ship riding to safety on its back.Which begs the question of who the real villain is:Her Majesty created this world to protect her subjects; she appointed Hawthorne (a one-name character like Angel or Columbo) as head of the government.Hawthorne made the Smilers to police the ship, and directed the Star Whale through painful torment.Smilers kept watch over all people, their booths an extension of the Starship‘s security system; the creepy mechanical men administered brutal punishments with no remorse.A, B, C, or D—all of the above?Still haven’t settled on a Halloween costume? Print out this Smiler mask, throw on a velvety cloak, and scare the crap out of the neighborhood kids.Stream all of Doctor Who now for free with your Amazon Prime membership.last_img read more

LeBron over Harden for MVP

first_imgAlso:– Buy, Sell, or Hold LeBron over Harden for MVPThe Rockets lead the NBA in wins, and most in the media think that James Harden the clear cut choice for NBA MVP. Today, Colin sized up the MVP race and thinks LeBron should get the nod over The Beard, even if it’s not the “cool” choice.Not only is LeBron averaging more rebounds, assists, has a better field goal percentage, and is a superior defender than Harden, he’s also currently doing it without a coach and with a roster that was completely overhauled in the middle of the season. LeBron isn’t ashamed to say he should win the MVP. Colin isn’t either, and he doesn’t care what anyone thinks. NFL replay adds more confusion than clarityYesterday, Raiders head coach Jon Gruden said he would be in favor of the NFL eliminating instant replay because slow-motion replay is deceptive and can even make correct calls look questionable. Colin agrees with Gruden and thinks that less replay is better for the game.Colin believes that replay is used far too often and kills the momentum of a game and that reviewing a play at 1/20 speed distorts the reality of the play that happened rather than clarify it.center_img Guests:Nick Wright – Host of FS1’s First Thing’s First joins the show to talk Mike Tomlin’s comments on celebrations; why Harden should win the MVP over LeBron;Joel Klatt – FS1 College Football Analyst is in-studio talking Saquon Barkley; why he’s a Baker Mayfield believer; and why Jim Mora shouldn’t be getting killed for saying Sam Darnold should go first over Rosen.Stephen Jackson – 14-year NBA Veteran is in-studio to explain why he’s not down with LeBron posting his own stats on social media; and why LeBron should consider the Spurs in free agency.last_img read more
