The Wednesday news briefing An ataglance survey of some top stories

first_imgHighlights from the news file for Wednesday, Nov. 29———ALBERTA JUDGE NAMED TO THE SUPREME COURT OF CANADA: Alberta-based judge Sheilah Martin has been appointed to the Supreme Court of Canada. Martin served on Alberta’s superior court before being elevated to the appeal court of Alberta, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. The Prime Minister’s Office cited her strong focus on education, equality rights and increasing the number of under-represented groups in law schools and the legal profession.———TORY MPs ADMONISH TRUDEAU OVER LGBTQ APOLOGY: Two Conservative MPs say Prime Minister Justin Trudeau went too far in his apology for past state-sanctioned discrimination against LGBTQ. Conservative MP Harold Albrecht said Trudeau went beyond apologizing for historical wrongs when he expressed his support for children discovering their sexual orientation or gender identity as young as the age of six. Tory MP Ted Falk says he supported an apology but the fact that some of the statements went beyond that kept him from responding with as much enthusiasm as others in the Commons.———PRODUCER FIRED OVER SEXUAL HARASSMENT ALLEGATIONS: An executive producer for several Vancouver-shot superhero shows has been fired following a “thorough investigation” into allegations of sexual harassment against him. Warner Bros. Television Group says it has terminated Andrew Kreisberg’s employment. Kreisberg had been suspended from his work on “Arrow,” “Supergirl,” “The Flash” and “Legends of Tomorrow” amid accusations of sexual harassment and inappropriate touching made by 19 former and current employees. Kreisberg had responded by saying he made comments of women’s appearance or clothes in a non sexualized manner.———GOVERNMENT PROMISES TREATMENT CENTRE FOR ONTARIO FIRST NATION: The federal government has promised to pay for a treatment centre for an Ontario reserve plagued by mercury contamination. Indigenous Services Minister Jane Philpott delivered the news to community leaders during a meeting Wednesday in Toronto that included Ontario Indigenous Relations Minister David Zimmer. Mercury contamination has plagued the English-Wabigoon River system in northwestern Ontario for half a century, since a paper mill dumped 9,000 kilograms of the substance into the river systems in the 1960s.———TORIES WANT MORNEAU TO RESIGN: Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer is calling for Bill Morneau’s resignation and says if he fails to do so, then Prime Minister Justin Trudeau should just fire him. Morneau has been under fire for weeks when he proposed tax-system changes that enraged small business owners. Since then, Morneau has faced intense political pressure for not fully disclosing his personal financial arrangements.———BLOGGERS WHO DENY CLIMATE CHANGE EFFECTS ON POLAR BEARS IGNORE SCIENCE: An analysis of dozens of blogs that question the threat climate change poses to polar bears has found the writers ignore virtually all the science on bears and sea ice. The study looked at 90 blogs that regularly discuss climate change. Half supported the consensus view that changes are happening and are the result of human activity. The other half didn’t.———ARGUMENTS OPEN IN RCMP SEX ASSAULT CASE: The Crown says a retired RCMP inspector mistakenly thought that a civilian employee consented to sexual activity in a washroom at the force’s British Columbia headquarters. Michelle Booker says Tim Shields did not take any steps to see if the woman agreed to allow him to allegedly kiss and grope her in 2009. Shields was charged with one count of sexual and has pleaded not guilty.———U.S. RATTLES ECONOMIC SABRE AGAINST NORTH KOREA: U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says the U.S. may target additional financial institutions with sanctions following North Korea’s latest intercontinental missile launch. Tillerson didn’t specify which institutions could be targeted. His comments came after U.S. President Donald Trump announced on Twitter that more sanctions were coming. North Korea said the missile it launched Wednesday can carry a large nuclear warhead and has “significantly more” power than missiles it’s tested earlier.———SHOCK EXPRESSED OVER LAURER FIRING: Natalie Morales says she was shocked when she woke up Wednesday to learn that her former “Today” show co-anchor Matt Lauer had been fired. She says the “Today” show has been her family for 16 years and learning about the allegations against Lauer is very difficult. She has also praised the unnamed woman whose accusations led to Lauer’s dismissal by NBC.———last_img read more

Swara Bhaskar and Gul Panag campaign for AAP candidates

first_imgNEW DELHI: With election campaigns of AAP gaining its momentum as May 12 is the poll day for Delhi, Delhi on Tuesday witnessed Bollywood actors like Swara Bhaskar, Gul Panag campaigning for AAP candidates. While Bhaskar held a roadshow and buzz shows around East Delhi for Atishi, Panag held a roadshow for South Delhi candidate Raghav Chadha. Independent MLA of Gujarat Jignesh Mevani also campaigned for Atishi in East Delhi.”Atishi is one of the strongest candidates in this election and I am campaigning for her because she should go to the Parliament. We need a voice in the Parliament who will raise the issue of education development and work for building up new schools in India,” actor Swara Bhaskar told the Millennium Post. She added that after the formation of AAP government she followed the development of Delhi and learned about the work of Atishi. “In this election, I have campaigned for the people who deserve to be elected. I have supported the candidates who are against the Modi regime and stand against the politics of hatred,” she said. Bhaskar will also campaign for AAP’s South Delhi candidate Raghav Chadha and North East Delhi candidate Dilip Pandey. “In the ground, the people are very happy with AAP. When there is a political force which is working against humanity and the constitution then there is a candidate like Atishi who is honest and promising new university, schools and colleges for Delhi. This is very special because it is rare today,” said Bhaskar. She also said,”It is a positive experience when educated, honest people like Atishi contest elections. We tend to start believing in our constitution once again. It is very important that in our democracy, people get proper representation and Atishi is Delhi’s voice.” Meanwhile, actor Gul Panag led a bike rally starting at Kalkaji Nehru Enclave to campaign for AAP’s South Delhi Lok Sabha Candidate Raghav Chadha.last_img read more

Canada says it will not help Jihadi Jack come to the country

OTTAWA — Canadian Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said on Tuesday the government would not help Jack Letts – dubbed “Jihadi Jack” by the media – come to Canada from the Kurdish prison where he is being held.Letts, who had dual Canadian-British citizenship, was stripped of his UK citizenship, a move that Goodale said on Sunday was an attempt by the United Kingdom to “off-load” its responsibilities in the case.Asked in an interview with the Canadian Broadcasting Corp whether the government had decided to repatriate Letts, Goodale said: “We have no obligation to facilitate his travel from his present circumstances, and we have no intention of facilitating that travel.”Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberals repealed a law that allowed for the citizenship of those convicted of terrorism offenses to be revoked. The policy shift, and Trudeau’s “A Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian” mantra, has prompted criticism from some opponents that he is soft on national security.On Monday, Trudeau’s main opponent in the October national election, Andrew Scheer, said that if elected, he “will not lift a finger” to help Letts.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.Letts, a Muslim convert whose father is Canadian, left Britain for Syria in 2014 when he was 18, according to media reports. He has been held in a Kurdish prison for two years after he was captured trying to leave Syria for Turkey. In an ITV interview, Letts said he hoped Canada would take him in.His father, John Letts, disputed the “knee-jerk assumption” that his son fought with Islamic State while in Syria, but added that if his son had broken the law, he should be tried, according to an interview with Canada’s Global News radio on Sunday.Goodale said: “Our first obligation is to look after the national security of our country and the safety of Canadians.”(Reporting by Steve Scherer; Editing by Peter Cooney) read more

BCE says more customers signing up for CraveTV than the company expected

BCE says more customers signing up for CraveTV than the company expected TORONTO – BCE Inc. (TSX:BCE) says its foray into the increasingly crowded streaming video space is off to a good start, with more people signing up for its video-on-demand service CraveTV than it had expected.“Subscriber numbers, although early, are ahead of internal expectations,” chief executive George Cope said during a conference call to discuss the company’s fourth-quarter results Thursday.However, the company did not provide specific subscriber figures for the service launched in December to compete with Netflix and Shomi, a partnership between Rogers (TSX:RCI.B) and Shaw Communications (TSX:SJR.B).Bell’s video-on-demand service is available to its television subscribers and through some of the country’s other providers, including Telus (TSX:T), Bell Aliant and Eastlink.The update came as the Montreal-based telecommunications and media company said Thursday it earned $542 million or 64 cents per share in the fourth quarter compared with $495 million or 64 cents per share a year ago.BCE also raised its quarterly dividend to 65 cents from 61.75 cents per share.BCE’s Bell Canada had $4.9 billion of operating revenue in the quarter — up 2.6 per cent from a year earlier — which accounted for most of the $5.5 billion of operating revenue for the company as a whole.BCE’s adjusted earnings amounted to 72 cents per share, up nearly three per cent from last year and just above the consensus estimate of 71 cents per share.Canaccord Genuity analyst Dvai Ghose says BCE stole “significant” market share from Rogers in the wireless market, and posted “remarkably strong” wireline results.Bell Wireless had $1.649 billion of operating revenue, up 9.6 per cent from a year earlier, while Bell Wireline operating revenue, which includes its high-speed Internet and Fibe TV operations as well as its traditional phone business, was $2.63 billion, up one per cent from a year earlier.That offset a decline in revenue at Bell Media — owner of CTV, numerous specialty TV channels and dozens of radio stations — which saw its operating revenue fall 3.9 per cent from a year ago to $789 million. The company also recorded a $95-million charge in the quarter, mainly to reflect the reduced value of its conventional TV properties.“While initially accretive, in our view, the CTV and Astral acquisitions are now creating problems,” Ghose said in a note to clients.BCE purchased Astral Media Inc. for $3.4 billion in 2013.During the conference call Thursday, BCE also revealed the financial terms of its deal with Rogers to share control of Burnaby, B.C.-based cellphone retailer Glentel Inc.BCE will pay $594 million for Glentel, before selling half of the company to Rogers for $392 million.

Libya cannot afford to remain divided says UN envoy deploring latest deadly

In a statement, the Special Representative for Libya and head of the UN Support Mission there (UNSMIL), Martin Kobler, strongly condemned the deadly attack, which, according to media reports, left nearly 50 people dead and wounded many others this morning as police recruits gathered at the training centre in Zliten, a coastal town between the capital, Tripoli, and the port of Misrata. “I am shocked at this reprehensible terrorist attack. I offer my sincere condolences to the families of the victims and wish those injured a speedy recovery,” said Mr. Kobler, who emphasized that the “heinous act” once again shows that urgent progress is required towards the formation of the Government of National Accord and the activation and rebuilding of Libyan security forces. He went on to say that the United Nations in consultation with the local health authorities is ensuring that the needed medical supplies are available. The Special Representative urged Libyans to put their differences aside and unite to confront the scourge of terrorism. “This attack comes at a time when fighting is still going on at oil facilities in Sidra. Libya cannot afford to remain divided in the face of such serious terrorist threat,” he underscored, referring to an attack just two days ago by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) on Sidra and Ras Lanouf oil terminals.“Every wasted day in failure to implement the Libyan Political Agreement is a day of gain for Da’esh (an alternative name for ISIL),” Mr. Kobler said, adding that: “These oil resources are property of the Libyan people and future generations. Libyan parties must spare no effort to block any attempt by Daesh to finance its terrorist agenda through seizure of Libyan oil.” Later in the day, in a statement issued by a UN spokesperson, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon also condemned the deadly terrorist attack that took place today near a police base in Zliten. He expressed his condolences to the many families of those who lost their lives or were injured and to the people of Libya. The Secretary-General in his statement also condemned the ongoing attacks by Da’esh-affiliates on oil facilities near Sidra, in central Libya. He deplored the attempts by extremists to strip these natural resources from the Libyan people. “These criminal acts serve as a strong reminder of the urgency to implement the Libyan Political Agreement and form a Government of National Accord. Unity is the best way for Libyans to confront terrorism in all its forms,” said the statement, adding that Mr. Ban renewed his call on all political and security actors to create a conducive environment for the Government to assume its responsibilities.In December Mr. Kobler facilitated the final stages of the Agreement to form a Government of National Accord with a Presidency Council, Cabinet, House of Representatives and State Council, in talks between the sides in Morocco in a bid to end four years of factional fighting that has killed many Libyans and left nearly 2.4 million in desperate need of humanitarian aid. read more

Scorchinghot shooting lifts No 6 Michigan State past Ohio State mens basketball

OSU student cheer during a game against Michigan State on Feb. 23 at the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Samantha Hollingshead | Photo Editor Shortly before the Ohio State men’s basketball team’s game against No. 6 Michigan State, it was revealed that starting forward Jae’Sean Tate would need shoulder surgery to end his season.Without its most consistent player available, many wondered how OSU would perform in a game it desperately needed to win in order to pad its marginal-at-best tournament résumé.As it turned out on Tuesday at the Schottenstein Center, the post-Tate Buckeyes resemble the team with the sophomore healthy: flashes of what it takes to get it done, but ultimately not there.The Spartans (23-5, 10-5) denied the Buckeyes (18-11, 10-6) that signature win it so badly needs with a blisteringly hot shooting performance. When the clock hit zero, the scoreboard read 81-62 in favor of the visitors.“Jae’Sean is kind of the heart and soul of this basketball team,” OSU coach Thad Matta said. “We challenged our guys, ‘Man down, we’ve got to man up.’ It is what it is.”Michigan State shot 14-of-22 from outside the 3-point arc on Tuesday, led by senior guards Bryn Forbes and Denzel Washington, who connected on seven and four triples, respectively.“They set great screens and they have tremendous pace on offense,” junior forward Marc Loving said on the Spartans’ 3-point prowess. “The screens were phenomenal to the point that they were getting a lot of open looks, and they were able to knock the shots down.”Despite the rather sizable difference in record and national perception, OSU hung tough with the Spartans throughout a highly competitive first half.The visitors were able to swell their lead to six points midway through the first half after a pair of jumpers, but the Buckeyes clawed back with a 7-0 run to briefly snatch a one-point lead. Seven points from Michigan State senior guard Denzel Valentine followed to get the lead back to six, but OSU managed to keep the game within reach at the break, 36-31.“I give Ohio State a lot of credit, considering they lose a guy the day of,” Michigan State coach Tom Izzo said. “I know what that’s like, and it’s hard, and Thad did a hell of a job.”While the advantage on the scoreboard was short-lived, it had to be an encouraging opening 20 minutes for Matta’s squad against the sixth-ranked Spartans.In OSU’s previous game, a 65-62 overtime win at Nebraska, only four Buckeyes scored a point over the entire 45-minute duration. By the 12:50 mark of the first half on Tuesday, OSU had its fifth scorer in the books after a 3-pointer by Loving.However, those five scorers would be the only five in the first half for Matta. Freshmen Mickey Mitchell, Daniel Giddens and A.J. Harris combined for zero points on five missed shots, including a pair of airballs by Mitchell, who was inserted into the starting lineup for Tate.Loving led the Buckeyes with nine points at the half, as he continued to fight through his month-long shooting slump. He was followed by redshirt sophomore center Trevor Thompson with seven.On the other side, Valentine, a leading contender for national player of the year honors, had 12 first-half points to lead all scorers. He also chipped in four assists for the Spartans, who shot 44.8 percent to OSU’s 35.7 in the first act.“Valentine is, I think the best player in the country,” Matta said. “He does so much.”However, given that Michigan State was a scorching-hot 7-of-10 from outside in the first half but just 6-of-19 from inside the arc, OSU could reasonably believe the Spartans’ shooting would cool off, giving the Buckeyes a chance to take advantage and mount a comeback.That isn’t what happened out of the locker rooms. In fact, it was quite the opposite.Back-to-back 3-pointers by Forbes followed by a trio of baskets by senior forward Matt Costello and a fast-break layup gave Michigan State its largest lead up to that point of 10 just minutes into the second half. That lead continued to swell behind successful inside and outside games.That second-half charge was run by torrid shooting performance by Forbes, who made six of the eight 3-pointers he hoisted in the second half. Overall, the former Cleveland State transfer finished with 27 points on 9-of-14 shooting. After the game, Izzo said he bailed his team out and “played his tail off.”“First half, we did a good job playing hard, playing tough, then second half, when Bryn Forbes started hitting shots, I felt we just started hanging our heads,” freshman guard JaQuan Lyle said.While the Schottenstein Center crowd of 14,257 tried to will the Buckeyes back into the game, the combination of the Spartans’ hot shooting and OSU’s cold spell — the Buckeyes shot just 20 percent from outside in the second half — was too much to deal with.“They were making a lot of shots, and we couldn’t get one to fall,” Lyle said.Loving and Lyle were the high-scorers for the Scarlet and Gray with 19 and 16 points, respectively. OSU shot 45 percent in the second half, but a 64.3-percent performance over the final 20 minutes by the Spartans nullified any momentum that could create.Mitchell ended up failing to register a point in his first collegiate start in 21 minutes. It was the seventh consecutive game that the Plano, Texas, native failed to score a point.“We felt like Mickey is getting more and more experience, and he’s going to continue to grow,” Matta said on his decision to insert the freshman into the starting lineup.OSU will have two more chances to grab a victory over a top 10 team before Big Ten tournament play begins, as it is set to host No. 8 Iowa on Sunday before traveling to East Lansing, Michigan, for a rematch with the Spartans on March 5. The games are scheduled to start at 4 p.m. and noon, respectively. read more

Une usine dincinération qui allie ski et écologie

first_imgUne usine d’incinération qui allie ski et écologieL’usine d’incinération d’Amager à Copenhague va faire peau neuve. Alliant loisir et écologie, elle sera bientôt agrémentée d’un domaine skiable et d’un réservoir de CO2 pour sensibiliser les habitants à la pollution provoquée par les déchets de consommation.Un domaine skiable de près d’1,5 kilomètre de descente, c’est l’étonnante idée qu’ont eu les architectes de l’agence BIG pour agrémenter l’usine d’incinération d’Amager à Copenhague. L’édifice, en service depuis plus de 40 ans, pourrait alors devenir, et ce dès l’automne prochain, la plus grande installation de ski alpin du Danemark.Pour cela, les architectes ont décidé de doter l’usine de trois pistes : une verte, une bleue, et un mur de bosses noir. Toutes trois recouvertes d’un revêtement de plastique souple censé amortir les chutes et retenir la neige. Des représentants de l’élite du ski danois auraient même déjà manifesté leur soutien pour le projet.Pourtant, ce concept d’incinérateur skiable n’est pas l’essentiel du projet de l’agence d’architecture. L’édifice se devait aussi de symboliser les préoccupations écologiques du pays. Les architectes danois ont donc développé tout un système destiné à sensibiliser les habitants à la pollution provoquée par les déchets de consommation. Le concept est simple : rendre visible les émissions de dioxyde de carbone issues de l’incinération des déchets en dotant l’usine d’une cheminée et d’un réservoir.”La fumée sera accumulée dans le réservoir jusqu’à l’obtention de 200 kilos de CO2. Des rejets qui seront ensuite évacués en un énorme rond de fumée”, explique Karsten Ifversen, architecte dans le quotidien danois Politiken. Ainsi, cinq bouffées crachées par la cheminée correspondront en fait à une tonne de CO2. “Avec une telle illustration, impossible d’ignorer nos déchets”, commente l’architecte. Et qui dit environnement, dit végétation. La façade de l’édifice devrait donc également être garnie de nombreuses plantes vertes.À lire aussiQuand un panda s’attaque à un bonhomme de neige au CanadaUn projet vraiment séduisant, même s’il reste quelques problèmes techniques à régler. Par exemple, celui de s’assurer que les skieurs ne se retrouvent pas à respirer les rejets de CO2 évacués par la cheminée. Un point crucial auquel les architectes ont déjà commencé à s’intéresser.Découvrez ce projet en images sur Maxisciences. Le 3 février 2011 à 17:36 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

From the Newsroom: Balance a mainstay of editorials

first_img Have you noticed anything different about our editorial page this week?Gee, I sure hope not. But there is a major change. Greg Jayne, our intelligent and reliable editorial page editor, is on vacation.We have a short bench here, so I am Greg’s backup. While the page is temporarily in my hands, let me use my opportunity to let you know how we put it together.First of all, unlike many newspapers these days, we pride ourselves on having a daily editorial page, complete with a local opinion, local letters, an opinion column and at least one political cartoon. A newspaper’s voice is meant to drive local discussion and cause readers to think about issues. We don’t expect everyone to agree, and, in fact, purposely offer provocative opinions. Over the course of a week or month, we hope everyone finds something to agree with, something to disagree with and a lot of things to think about.It all starts with the editorial. Our editorial board — me, Greg, Publisher Scott Campbell and Community Partnerships Director Jody Campbell — talk regularly and share the editing so that editorials reflect the board’s consensus. But in a year, Greg probably writes 340 of the editorials. I write a good chunk of the rest. Our assistant news editor, Colleen Keller, also pitches in. (You’ll read one of hers on Sunday.)The editorials have to be written to the right length to fit our template, though the page designer can kern the type, which means to adjust the spacing slightly between the characters to get the perfect fit. I find that I tend to either write opinions that are way too long or too short, and then I have to go back and cut stuff or find some additional facts.I’m normally not that opinionated so sometimes I have trouble thinking of topics. Because I am filling in, I don’t want to repeat or contradict what we already said or advance a weird new opinion that Greg will have to spend the next two or three years defending. So I am careful to go back and see if we have already opined on an issue and, if so, what positions we took. This time, I didn’t have much trouble finding topics, and Greg left me some ideas too.

The approval process included the Monarch UDI 2 and the Monarch UDI 2 with wireless/AED. The digital system has been cleared to be used for both pediatric and adult radiographic imaging.Meridian’s Monarch UDI 2 with UHD software is specified to operate as a certified component when used with the Meridian Operators Console to control the X-ray generator and other acquisition and display parameters. The Monarch UHD is used with a 20-inch (4K) acquisition console that features 3,840 x 2,560 display resolution (9.8 MP), four times that of typical acquisition stations, creating images at resolution typically seen only on high-resolution diagnostic workstations. Images are displayed twice as fast as most other workstations. It is primarily noted for its advanced workflow features, mobility, image quality and reliability.Other features:Imaging panels feature “Quad Cell Technology,” which includes direct Csl vapor deposit to increase both contrast and resolution, a reflective layer coating that increases sensitivity by 1.8 times, and moisture-proof sealing for reliability and long life, all at the lowest dose possible.Meridian’s “Surefire” AED senses the X-ray and automatically acquires the image without requiring a wired connection to the generator, enabling the Monarch UHD to be used on any new or existing X-ray capable system.Using the system with any analog mobile X-ray system or radiographic/RF room makes the analog system become digital immediately anytime there is an X-ray source.The waterproof design of the 20-inch mobile tablet operators’ console enables it to withstand the near-constant wipedowns required to maintain 100% sanitation compliance.
