“The new CRTC chair’s call for equitable contributions from all industry participants—whether online, cable, ISP, foreign or domestic—is a big step in the right direction,” said Jerry Dias, Unifor National President. “If Netflix, Google and Facebook and all the other American giants don’t have to reinvest their Canadian profits in Canadian shows and local news, our cultural identity will be in big trouble.”Unifor agrees with CRTC Chair Ian Scott’s conclusion that American digital media is moving fast to a dominant position in Canadian television’s audiences, revenues, and profits.

(North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple)Dennis WardAPTN National NewsThe Governor of North Dakota is ordering people at the Oceti Sakowin camp to pack up and leave immediately.On Monday, outgoing Republican Governor Jack Dalyrmple signed an Executive Order calling for a “mandatory evacuation of all persons located in aread under the proprietary jurisdiction of the United States Army Corps of Engineers located in Morton County.”It’s another political setback for those fighting against the Dakota Access Pipeline and comes just one day after the United States Army Corps of Engineers said it would not forcibly remove people from the camp.The Order calls for people to leave and not to return.WHEREAS, Morton County is currently experiencing severe winter weather storm conditions, and it is anticipated harsh winter conditions will continue until next spring; andWHEREAS, winter conditions have the potential to endanger human life, especially when they are exposed to these conditions without proper shelter, dwellings, or sanitation for prolonged periods of time; andWHEREAS, large populations have chosen to stay in areas of Morton County managed by the United States Army Corps of Engineers south of the Cantapeta Creek and the Cannonball River (The areas include the confluence with Cantapeta Creek east, east of North Dakota Highway 1806, north of the Cannonball River, and west of the Missouri River) in tents, vehicles, temporary and semi-permanent structures which have not been inspected and approved by Morton County as proper dwellings suitable for winter habitation; andWHEREAS, the aforementioned areas of Morton County are not zoned for dwellings suitable for living in winter conditions, and also do not possess proper permanent sanitation infrastructure to sustain a living environment consistent with proper public health; andWHEREAS, the United States Army Corps of Engineers has ordered the aforementioned area of Morton County which they manage to be vacated due to public safety concerns related to the inability to effectively provide emergency, medical, fire response services, and law enforcement services; andWHEREAS, it is the responsibility of the state to assist citizens and visitors to North Dakota in addressing the emergencies, disasters, and other hardships that may face the state, its citizens and visitors, to include issuance of orders in the best interest of public safety.Dalrymple has directed “agencies, emergency service officials and nongovernmental organizations to reduce threats to public safety by not guaranteeing the provision of emergency and other governmental and nongovernmental services in the evacuation area.”The Order says any person who chooses to enter, re-enter or stay in the evacuation area does so at their own risk, and assumes any and all corresponding liabilities.The Order is effective immediately.
4 May 2009Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today welcomed the opening of a new forum for the United Nations to advance its work on the disarmament, demobilization and reintegration (DDR) process in countries emerging from armed conflict. Mr. Ban noted that there have been nearly one million beneficiaries of DDR efforts worldwide over the past 20 years, in a message to the International DDR Congress in Cartagena, Colombia.“DDR is designed to advance security and stability in post-conflict environments so that recovery and development can firmly take root,” Mr. Ban said in a message that was delivered on his behalf by Assistant Secretary-General for Rule of Law and Security Institutions Dmitry Titov.“Our experiences in Mozambique, Sierra Leone and many other places have shown how effective DDR initiatives can be in helping ex-combatants build a new life for themselves and a better future for their countries,” he added.The message highlighted the first edition of the Integrated DDR Standards launched in November 2006 to guide the design and implementation DDR programmes. “I am glad there is now a wider forum where we can join with other partners to push this work forward,” Mr. Ban stated, welcoming the Congress’s focus on how DDR can fit into peacebuilding, and how DDR can be better coordinated with broader projects.
The Sri Lankan Army has maintained that its involvement in the Northern Province is limited “only to demining, construction works and infrastructure development in connection with the resettlement of people.”Responding to a questionnaire sent by The Hindu on the status of the Army’s presence in the Northern and Eastern Provinces, it said: “We have almost totally disengaged [ourselves] from non-military activities.” On a question about the Army’s plan to close down camps in the North, it said since the end of the “humanitarian operation” [that’s how the Eelam War IV is called in the Army’s parlance] in May 2009, the deployment of troops had been “regularly reviewed” based on “threat assessment, national security concerns and strategic implications”. Accordingly, troop deployment had been “readjusted on several occasions. This is a continuous process and the number of troops and bases will be in accordance with the national security concerns.” It said the troop deployment adjustment and the release of private lands [taken over by the Army during the War] are “continuous and ongoing processes”. It confirmed that in the last five years, it has released 19,159 acres in the Province, including 6,258 acres in Palaly.The Army described the Thalsevana holiday resort being run by it in Kankesanthurai of Jaffna as an “R&R [rest and recreation] facility”. It also said the resort was open to the public “in a limited manner” when rooms were vacant.In late May, Chief Minister of the Province, C.V. Wigneswaran, told an international tele-press conference that President Maithripala Sirisena had made an offer to him to take over the resort and run it as a conference hall. State Minister of Defence Ruwan Wijewardene told The Hindu then that no decision had been taken as there were two views within the government on the issue. Last month, a statement put up on the website of the Ministry of Defence stated that 59 camps in the Northern Province were closed down since May 2009. No camp was wound up this year. There were also media reports, quoting Major General Nandana Udawatte, that the number of army camps came down from 152 to 93 [during 2009-2014].The Army also denied reports that 75 per cent of its divisions are located in the North, but refused to give the exact figure. “No army in the world would disclose actual numbers.” It pointed out that “even identification numbers of army formations, naval and air fleets in many countries are not disclosed.” The Oakland Institute, a US-based policy think tank, had earlier reported the Army has “expanded” itself into “non-military activities” and is “engaged in large-scale development, construction projects and business ventures”.
“It is widely acknowledged nowadays that teaching in both the mother tongue and the official national language helps children to obtain better results and stimulates their cognitive development and capacity to learn,” the Director-General of the UN Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Koïchiro Matsuura, said in a message for International Mother Language Day, which is celebrated on 21 February. UNESCO’s General Conference 1999 proclaimed the Day in recognition of the importance of the world’s linguistic diversity and to promote mother tongue languages. But a survey being undertaken by the agency indicates that although the use of mother languages as a medium of instruction is gaining ground, few countries have incorporated the idea into their education systems. The study shows that India is one of the world leaders in the development of multilingual education systems, with about 80 languages being used to teach children at different levels of schooling. But across Africa, where an estimated 2,011 languages are spoken, the languages of the former colonial powers – English, French, Spanish and Portuguese – still dominate education systems. A similar situation prevails in Latin America. According to the “Atlas of the World Languages in Danger of Disappearing” there are more than 6,000 languages spoken in the world today. Ninety five percent of these languages are spoken by only four percent of the population, and an average of two die out each month.
TORONTO – Poloz in Oshawa, Ont.: Canada’s top banker will be in his hometown of Oshawa, Ont., on Tuesday addressing Durham College, the University of Ontario Institute of Technology and Trent University. The event will mark Bank of Canada governor Stephen Poloz’s first public remarks since last week’s federal budget.Quebec budget: Quebec is expected to present its third consecutive balanced budget when it tables the fiscal plan Tuesday. Last fall, the province projected a surplus of $2.2 billion in the 2016-17 fiscal year while abolishing a unpopular health tax.TD Bank meeting: TD Bank holds its annual general meeting in Toronto on Thursday. The lender has found itself at the centre of allegations that its employees signed up customers for services without their consent. CEO Bharat Masrani has said he doesn’t believe the accusations accurately reflect the bank’s workplace culture.BlackBerry results: BlackBerry releases its fourth-quarter and year-end results prior to the opening of the markets Friday. It will be the first earnings report since CEO John Chen said the company is no longer in turnaround mode and is now focusing on growth after a loss of US$117 million in the previous quarter.GDP: On Friday, Statistics Canada will release the gross domestic product figures for January. The economy wrapped up the final quarter of 2016 with a surprise — an annual growth rate of 2.6 per cent — largely fuelled by household spending. by The Canadian Press Posted Mar 26, 2017 8:00 am MDT Last Updated Mar 26, 2017 at 8:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Five things to watch for in the Canadian business world in the coming week
Among the primary actions called for by the report is stepped up management and data gathering on forests resources. While existing tree species in the world is estimated at between 80,000 and 100,000, only 2,400 (around 3 per cent) are actively managed for the products and services they provide. Data from 86 countries in the report show a lack of data and insufficient awareness of the importance of forest genetic resources, Linda Collette, Secretary of the FAO Commission on Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture, said, adding that it often translates into national policies that are “partial, ineffective, or non-existent.”“Governments need to act and implement the Global Plan of Action for Forest Genetic Resources and FAO and its Commission stand ready to guide, support and assist countries in the conservation and sustainable use of forest genetic resources,” she said. Half of the forest species reported by countries are threatened or subjuect to genetic erosion When forest genetic resources are well-managed, forests can provide important benefits Conservation and sustainable management efforts so far Urgent action to better manage the genetic diversity of forests – under pressure from climate change, exploitation and conversion for other uses – is needed to ensure that the benefits they provide will survive, the United Nations said in a first-of-its-kind report released today.“Forests provide food, goods and services which are essential to the survival and well-being of all humanity,” Eduardo Rojas-Briales, Assistant Director-General for Forestry at the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), said on the release of The State of the World’s Forest Genetic Resources.“These benefits all rely on safeguarding the rich store of the world’s forest genetic diversity – which is increasingly at risk,” he added.The report says that half of the forest species regularly utilized by countries are threatened by the conversion of forests to pastures and farmland, overexploitation and the impacts of climate change. Biodiversity in forest genetic resources is also essential, it says, to improving both forest species’ productivity and the nutritional value of the foods they produce, which includes leafy vegetables, honey, fruits, seeds, nuts, roots, tubers and mushrooms. A wide variability in desirable traits, such as fruit size, growing speed, oil composition and pulp proportion, is a prerequisite for breeding and domesticating improved tree species, it says. At the same time, it adds, genetic diversity is needed to ensure that forests can adapt to changing environmental conditions, including those stemming from climate change and invasive pests and diseases.
One Nato naval source said the Russian vessels were due to leave Severomorsk near Murmansk imminently and could pass Britain as early as next week.The source said: “It’s not catching us by surprise, we are working up what to do and we are all over it. The most likely thing is that they will go through the North Sea, down the Dover Strait and through the Channel.“They might even stop off the North East coast to fly for a bit.”But the source said it was also possible the Russian warships would split, with some going through the Irish Sea or down the West coast of Ireland, “to cause more trouble”.The source said: “Even if it splits five ways and we can’t man mark them, it doesn’t matter, we have got this covered.” The Royal Naval preparations come after Boris Johnson, the Foreign Secretary, this week triggered a diplomatic row by saying he would “like to see demonstrations outside the Russian embassy” in London over Moscow’s role in the ongoing Syrian conflict.A former First Sea Lord on Friday said Russian posturing risked inflaming tensions further.Nato navies have been preparing a major operation to track the 55,000 tonne Admiral Kuznetsov and its escorts in a game of “naval cat and mouse” down through the North Atlantic to the Bay of Biscay and then into the Mediterranean.

Russia is expected to sail its only aircraft carrier through the English Channel later this month amid strained relations between London and Moscow over the Syria crisis.Royal Navy chiefs and their Nato allies are drawing up plans to escort up to eight Russian warships which are due to leave port imminently to join the country’s air strike campaign against Syrian rebels.Admirals believe the Kremlin will use the voyage as an opportunity for a show of strength as it passes Britain, and expect the carrier’s aircraft to launch flying drills off the British and French coasts. One Royal Navy Type 23 frigate and one Type 45 destroyer are being prepared to monitor the Russians, while an RAF Rivet Joint spy plane, C130 Hercules and Typhoon jets will also be on standby.But sources said, with the Royal Navy short of ships and sailors, the warships would have to be diverted from other missions to meet the Russian vessels.Sergei Shoigu, Russian defence minister, has said the carrier will be escorted by six warships and three or four support vessels. The Russian vessels are expected to include the battlecruiser Peter the Great and a Udaloy class destroyer.Once in the Mediterranean, the Kuznetsov is set to take up position off the coast of Syria for four to five months, where it could uses its complement of MiG-29K/KUB jets and helicopters to carry out airstrikes.Lord West of Spithead, a former First Sea Lord, said the Russians were entitled to sail down the Channel, and the ageing carrier was not fully operational, but he said the country’s posturing over Syria would risk inflaming tensions.He said: “When people start posturing, things become dangerous. It all raises tensions and makes things more difficult and that’s not a clever thing to do.“It makes sense to have them monitored by a couple of Nato ships. The fact that the Navy is scrabbling around for a frigate is symptomatic of the fact that it’s a national disgrace we only have 19 surface escorts.He said: “I find Russia very worrying at the moment. Their economy is on a war footing.”Dr Igor Sutyagin, a Russia expert at the Royal United Services Institute, said that as the country’s economy foundered it was left only with its military might to project influence.
TWO INFECTIOUS DISEASE experts have warned that a new outbreak of polio in Syria recently might endanger neighbouring regions, including Europe.The outbreak of the disease was confirmed by the World Health Organisation in October.Writing to the journal, The Lancet, the two experts said Professor Martin Eichner, of the University of Tübingen, and Stefan Brockmann, of Reutlingen Regional Public Health Office, in Germany, said that most European countries today use inactivated polio vaccine (IPV) rather than oral polio vaccination (OPV), which has been discontinued in most areas due to rare cases of it causing acute flacid paralysis (AFP), the main symptom of polio.VaccineThey said that while the IPV vaccine is highly effective in preventing polio disease,it only providespartial protection from infection.In Europe, where the circulating polio viruses have been eliminated for decades, transmission can only be prevented by IPV if vaccination coverage is continually very high and if the population has high hygienic standards and low crowding, they explained.As large numbers of refugees are fleeing Syria and seeking refuge in neighbouring countries and Europe, they said there is a risk that the virus could be reintroduced into areas which have been polio-free for decades.European countries at riskThe two experts warned that areas such as Bosnia and Herzegovina, Ukraine and Austria, where vaccination coverage is low, could be most at risk. “Immunity may be insufficient to prevent sustained transmission if the polio virus is reintroduced into the community,” they stated.Tübingen and Brockmann speculate that the virus might circulate for nearly a year before a single case of AFP arises and an outbreak can be detected, even though by this time hundreds of individuals might carry the infection.According to the authors: Vaccinating only Syrian refugees—as has been recommended by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control—must be judged as insufficient; more comprehensive measuresshould be taken into consideration.DiscontinuedThey said that the oral polio vaccination provides high protection against acquisition and spreading of the infection, but this vaccine was discontinued in Europe because of rare cases of vaccination-related acute flaccid paralysis.They warned that only some of the European Union member states still allow its use and none has a stockpile of oral polio vaccines.They said that routine screening of sewage for poliovirus has not been done in most European countries, but said there should be intensified surveillance measure considered for settlements with large numbers of Syrian refugees.Read: UN warns of Syria polio outbreak after cluster of cases reported>Read: Over nine million people in Syria need outside help to survive>
Virgin Galactic unveiled a new model of its SpaceShip Two spaceplane on 19 February. The private space tourism firms second spacecraft model has been bestowed the name VSS Unity.The VSS Unity has been designed to eventually replace the space tourism companys first model, the VSS Enterprise, which crashed during a test flight in 2014. The incident cost the life of a pilot, while severely injuring the co-pilot.Virgin Galactic founder Richard Branson said that the VSS Untity was the outcome of around 700 engineers working tirelessly, throughout the day and night for over a year. Hinting at possible improvements prior to the unveiling event, Branson said, Weve got some wonderful surprises later on today, Good Morning Britain reported.Virgin Galactic showcased its new spacecraft at its Mojave Spaceport in California, in ceremonial style. The VSS Unity appears almost identical to its predecessor. However, the companys engineers have made major improvements and changes in the new model, which is also slated to take off, orbit and re-enter the Earths atmosphere, as planned before with the VSS Enterprise.The VSS Unity has enhanced auto-pilot features. The automotive functions were specifically designed so as to provide pilots with additional support, in the event of a malfunction. The first SpaceShip Two models unfortunate crash is believed to have occurred in part, due to pilot error. In efforts to ensure increased security, engineers have boosted the new spacecrafts automotive functions.Another change in the new SpaceShip Two model involves fuel. The VSS Unitys engine will use a different fuel source, which has rubber-like consistency, to ensure that engine combustion is optimised. However, this type of fuel has also been known to cause the companys spacecraft engines some issues in the past, the Verge reported.Virgin Galactic has not yet tested its newest spacecraft. The companys vice president of projects Will Pomerantz has said that the VSS Unity has been scheduled for its first round of test flights later in the year.

Majority owned by the Fijian government, Air Pacific posted the biggest loss it has ever suffered in its 59-year history this year. A total loss of $F65.3 million (AU$38 million) for the year to March was recorded, compared to a loss of F$12.5 million a year earlier. But while this has made it an even more pressing task for Qantas to offload its 46 percent stake in the airline, Air New Zealand is showing no signs of concern over Air Pacific’s performance, according to a recent report in Stuff.co.nz. The report sources an Air New Zealand spokesperson as saying there would be no change in the airline’s policy and that it would retain its minority 1.9 percent shareholding. Qantas, on the other hand, has made it completely clear it wants out of Air Pacific, according to a report last week in The Sydney Morning Herald. The Australian carrier signalled their intentions to sell their holdings during talks with Air Pacific in September 2009. Since then discussions have been continuing, the most recent of which saw Air Pacific’s Chairman Nalin Patel and CEO Dave Pflieger fly to Sydney to talk with Qantas CEO Alan Joyce in May.Air Pacific has declared the past financial year to be the toughest in its history, and blamed increased competition following the introduction of Fiji-Australia routes by Jetstar and V Australia, as well as higher fuel costs and fuel-hedging losses, as the reason behind its financial slide. And this latest round of losses will make it harder for Qantas to find a buyer. Despite assurances from Air Pacific that it will turn its fortunes around, industry insiders quoted by the SMH suggested that this is highly unlikely. “They are going to be squeezed into oblivion,” an insider said.Air Pacific faces major structural problems, and only has a fleet of two leased Boeing 747-400s, three 737s and one 767. On top of this, it has suffered from years of under-financing from its government shareholders. Source = e-Travel Blackboard: S.F
Comments Share In the third round, Kiper has the Cardinals taking Michigan center Graham Glasgow, who started 37 games on the Wolverines offensive line. Glasgow received All-Big Ten honorable mention in 2015 and was a three-time Academic All-Big Ten selection.ESPN has Glasgow ranked as the fourth-best center available in this year’s class behind Ryan Kelly of Alabama, Nick Martin of Notre Dame and Max Tuerk of USC. Kelly, incidentally, is the player most frequently projected as a first-round pick of the Cardinals, showing up in 24 mocks since March 1.

In this mock, he plays the role of general manager for each team and makes his selection based on what is best for each franchise in the given draft slot. Louisiana Monroe quarterback Garrett Smith gets up after being tackled by Georgia linebacker Leonard Floyd during an NCAA college football game in Athens, Ga., Saturday, Sept. 5, 2015. (Brant Sanderlin/Atlanta Journal-Constitution via AP) Kiper mocked the first three rounds of the draft in which the Arizona Cardinals own two selections. Here’s the haul the longtime draft expert has coming to the Cardinals.Arizona CardinalsRound 1 (29): Leonard Floyd, OLB, GeorgiaRound 3 (92): Graham Glasgow, C, MichiganAnalysis: This draft is off to a good start already thanks to the addition of Chandler Jones, who represents that second-round pick that was shipped to New England. While safety is a clear need, with Vonn Bell off the board it makes sense to grab Floyd, who provides needed pass-rushing ability. There aren’t gaping holes, but I don’t need to reach for a needed center in Round 1 at the cost of passing on a high-upside pass-rusher like Floyd, and I’m able to grab Glasgow in Round 3.Floyd has been frequently linked to the Cardinals at number 29. In fact, the Georgia outside linebacker has shown up as the Cardinals’ first-round pick in 10 mock drafts tracked by ArizonaSports.com since March 1. Floyd was the Bulldogs’ second-leading tackler in 2015, with 74 combined stops. He also led the team with 4.5 sacks and was tied for the team-lead with 10.5 tackles for loss. In his three years in Athens, Floyd registered 184 total tackles, 17 sacks, forced five fumbles and had 54 quarterback pressures.
People walk past a gold art piece showing a bathrobe-clad Harvey Weinstein seated atop a couch and clutching an Oscar statue on the sidewalk along Hollywood Blvd., in Los Angeles Thursday, March 1, 2018. The piece, titled “Casting Couch,” is a collaborative effort between a Los Angeles street artist known as Plastic Jesus and Joshua “Ginger” Monroe, creator of the nude Donald Trump statue. Plastic Jesus said the piece was meant to shine a light on the entertainment industry’s sexual misconduct crisis and the disgraced movie mogul’s prominent role in it.

The project, made of fiberglass and acrylic resin, was in the works for two months.It will be on display this weekend, weather permitting.Visitors to the sculpture were sitting next to the faux Weinstein and taking selfies, turning it into an interactive installment, Plastic Jesus said.It also expands the symbolism, he said.“For many, many people, aspiring actors and actresses, that would have been their dream to be close to Harvey,” but that reality has proven a nightmare for some, the artist said.Weinstein has been accused by dozens of women of sexual harassment or sexual assault, including rape. He’s denied all allegations of non-consensual sex, but apologized for “the way I’ve behaved with colleagues in the past.”Plastic Jesus has created a series of Oscar-timed statues, including one last year of Kanye West in a crucified pose and titled “False Idol.”___Lynn Elber can be reached at email@example.com and on Twitter at http://twitter.com/lynnelber .___For full coverage of awards season, visit: https://apnews.com/tag/AwardsSeason
Nova Scotia Oscar winner visits provincial legislature with gold statuette HALIFAX – Oscar made a visit to the Nova Scotia legislature on Wednesday.Set decorator Shane Vieau brought the gold statuette along as he was recognized and congratulated for his recent Academy Award win through a motion brought to the legislative chamber by Premier Stephen McNeil.Vieau, a Dartmouth native, won the Oscar last month for best production design on the film that also won for best picture in 2017, The Shape of Water.“We (the province) are very culturally all about the arts so for me it’s just a big pleasure to be able to celebrate that,” Vieau told reporters.He says while it’s overwhelming to “show off” the award, he’s proud of the work that was done on the film.Vieau said it was gratifying to bring the award home to share it with Nova Scotians.“This is probably the biggest honour for me, is coming home to do this. This is more important than anything else I’ve had besides accepting the Oscar.”Vieau said he’s currently working on the next DC Comics superhero film, Shazam, in Toronto.He said work on the film is slated to wrap up over the next seven weeks or so, with a theatrical release scheduled for next April.
