Tom FennarioAPTN NewsFormer and current leaders in Nunavik used their appearance at the Quebec inquiry to blast the federal and provincial governments for turning Inuit culture upside down and causing the social ills that plague many of their communities in the sub-arctic region.“My ancestors learnt to live of the land and its animals using everything,” former Kuujjuaq mayor Tunu Napartuk told the commissioners. “They invented the Kayak, and the igloo. It was out of necessity.“Our form of education was straight and simple; if you do this you live, if you do that you die.”Napartuk continued by reminding the commissioners that if you look through the lens of 4,000 years of Inuit history, the social struggles being faced today in Quebec are a recent cause of colonialism.“It’s only these 60 past years that all these changes started for the Inuit of Nunavik,” he said.The Quebec inquiry is in Nunavik learning about the relationship people here have with some of the province’s public departments.Jennifer Munick, chairperson for the Kativik Regional Government, the administrative body that provides services throughout Nunavik, said dealing with the federal and provincial government for health and justice services can be frustrating.“We’re constantly overwhelmed, it’s like we’re trying to swim, over, keep ourselves alive,” Munick said. “I feel bad for the health sector, the frontline workers. But I feel bad more so for Inuit.”The day of testimony wasn’t all bleak.Two representatives of Project Saqijuq gave a presentation of how their organization is serving as a liasion between community programs and the justice system.One of their programs takes troubled and vulnerable men out on the land for cultural lessons.Another is a wellness court which they hope can serve as a partial alternative to Quebec’s over taxed and failing travelling court.“Say someone was arrested and it was someone who may have issues with addictions, they could be someone who could be met by a member of Saqijuq, should they be willing to try to go through treatment,” said Aileen MacKinnon, Saqijuq regional coordinator. “It would be something that would be suggested, suggested with their lawyers before the court.”Saqijuq is meeting with representatives of the province later this week to talk about going forward with the community court.For Tunu Napartuk, it comes down to survival – except this time he said, Inuit can’t do it on their own.“I can do my share as an Inuk, I can do my best with my children, but the region of Nunavik will need a full partnership with the government of Quebec to make history right,” he email@example.com@tfennario

Some 6.5 billion items were sent last year, the Universal Postal Union (UPU) said in a press release issued at its headquarters in Berne, Switzerland.Domestic parcel volumes increased by nearly 8 per cent while international volumes rose by 1 per cent, a result the UPU said could be connected to e-commerce, with the majority of online purchases still remaining within borders. In his message for the annual event, UPU Director General Edouard Dayan acknowledged postal services’ contribution to economic and social development. “Owing to their universality, postal services provide a link between people all over the globe. This is especially important at a time when millions of people do not enjoy the right to communication,” Mr. Dayan said. “In a constantly changing world, postal services make it possible to establish and maintain this contact and this link, both of which are vital.”Latin America experienced the highest regional increase in overall domestic and international parcel volumes in 2007, while the largest increase in letters was seen in Arab countries. For the last 60 years UPU has worked to promote the development of postal markets, ensuring the interconnection of its 191 member countries’ networks and setting the rules for international mail exchanges.Achievements already made in 2008 by the UN organization include establishing an agreement for direct mail exchanges between the Israeli and Palestinian Authority and UPU member countries, and also adopting a four-year road map that emphasizes the key role played by the postal sector in the world’s economy. 9 October 2008Domestic and international mail and parcel volumes continue to grow, despite predictions that they would decline because of the advance of electronic commerce, the United Nations postal agency says today as it observes the annual World Post Day.

Marine pollution isn’t limited to plastic bags and oil spills: Researchers found that eels exposed to trace amounts of cocaine in the water suffer health problems.Recent studies have shown that various medications—illegal or not—make their way into rivers and streams, often damaging the aquatic residents.In this case, scientists from Italy’s University of Naples Federico II and the University of Salerno focused on one species and one drug: eels and cocaine.“The presence of illicit drugs in the aquatic environment represents a new potential risk for aquatic organisms, due to their constant exposure to substances with strong pharmacological activity,” according to a paper, published in the journal Science of the Total Environment. “Currently, little is known about the ecological effects of illicit drugs.”Banned in most parts of the world, the narcotic can infiltrate waterways via users’ urine, or direct dumping into toilets (so while you may be helping an addict friend, remember you’re also harming fish).There is as much as 20 billionths of a gram of coke per liter of water off the coast of Europe, as reported by Phys.org, which gained access to the full study.But what effect do these levels of contamination have on eels?Over a period of 50 days, the team observed a sampling of 150 snake-like critters—some swimming in clean water from a tap, others in cocaine-polluted tanks.Their results are disturbing, to say the least.Effects of cocaine on the European eel (via Science of The Total Environment)Aside from noticeable levels of hyperactivity compared to their clean counterparts, the drugged-up eels appeared healthy—on the outside. A post-mortem dissection, however, proved otherwise.Researchers found instances of muscle damage around the skeletons, which can inhibit swimming. They also detected swollen and sometimes broken muscle fibers, which, while not life-threatening, can inhibit the eels from successfully migrating.They also reported that despite a post-exposure transfer to clean tanks for up to 10 days, none of the junkie fish immediately recovered.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

A teacher placed on leave from Laurin Middle School after he was accused of assaulting his wife now faces a stalking charge in Seattle, from when he was allegedly seen driving around the woman’s home and one of their children’s schools.Michael J. Brotherton, 46, was arrested in Seattle last week on suspicion of domestic violence stalking and two counts of violating domestic violence protection orders.The protection orders apply to Brotherton’s wife and their two minor children.According to Seattle Municipal Court records, Brotherton’s wife and their children have been staying in Seattle. Prior to dropping the children off at school June 12, the woman saw Brotherton driving around her current home. A staff member at one of the children’s schools also saw Brotherton driving around the school.Brotherton was booked into the Clark County Jail on June 22 on an out-of-county warrant and then was booked Monday in the King County Correctional Facility. His bail was set at $200,000, but he posted bond and was released Wednesday, records show.Battle Ground Public Schools placed Brotherton on administrative leave in April, and a district spokeswoman said at that time he’d remain on leave pending the outcome of his case.
By Yankuba JallowHonourable Halifa Sallah, the secretary general for Peoples’ Democratic Organisation for Independence and Socialism has told journalists that the next step for the New Gambia is to have a system change.Sallah said the Coalition succeeded in unseating ex-president Jammeh to achieve the second phase of the revolution. He said the first phase was to attain the right to self- determination, Independence and the sovereignty of the Republic. He said his generation has attained the second phase on second December 2016 that is the sovereignty of the people. He added that before 2 December 2016, few believed that sovereignty of the Republic resides in them and that their votes could effect change. HE noted that now all are convinced that their votes must determine who leads in the Gambia.He indicated that the fundamental task that remains is to have a system change.PDOIS Press ConferenceThe system change according to Sallah, should address the economic challenges that the country is facing.PDOIS on Sunday explained to journalists the matters discussed at its national congress and the resolutions emanating from the debate of the delegates.Sallah, who doubles as the National Assembly Member for Serrekunda Constituency stated this in a press conference held on Sunday 6 January 2019.Earlier, the party’s chairperson, Honourable Sidia S. Jatta said the press conference was meant to announce the beginning of a new beginning.“The change that we have been calling for is yet to come,” he said.On his part, Honourable Sallah dilated on the formation of the coalition and the aftermath of the formation. Sallah stated that the formation of the coalition came out of necessity due to the political atmosphere that existed at the time.Mr Sallah, who is also the National Assembly Member for Serekunda, said the Constitution of PDOIS establishes the congress as the second highest organ of the party.“It has given a mandate to serve for four years but in between the four years the congress is given mandate to convene every two years a review congress,” he said.According to Mr Sallah, “in the 2015 congress of PDOIS, resolutions were passed and one of the resolutions was that the central committee had the mandate to negotiate with other opposition parties in order to develop a strategy and tactic for the 2016 presidential election.”“We would want the public to go back to what PDOIS indicated in Agenda 2016. We emphasized that we will work for electoral reform so that we can have a level ground for multi-party contest but if electoral reform fails, then the opposition parties should meet and select one candidate among their numbers who will serve as the flagbearer to effect the change that the people desired,” he saidHe explained that at the time the coalition was being formed, some of the political leaders were either in prison or out of the country. He said he sought the consent of the Central Committee of the party to write to all presidential candidates to invite them to a meeting so that they could discuss the formation of a coalition. He added that several meetings were held at Kairaba Beach Hotel. He averred that the Coalition was eventually formed and a convention held where an independent candidate in the person of Mr. Adama Barrow was elected by the delegates.He said after the December 1 elections, the Coalition won and the former president accepted the verdict of the people and congratulated the president elect (as he then was). He called on all Gambians to show appreciation for the work done by the former Inspector General of Police Yankuba Sonko and former Chief of Defence Staff Qusman BadJie, respectively.’ He said he had to convene meetings with the security chiefs to handle the affairs of the 120000 who became internally displaced and over 50000 who became refugees. He said in one of the meetings the former Director General Yankuba Badjie came late and explained that Jammeh wanted to take him along but he declined to go.Sallah also stated that the Coalition security personnel should also be given national awards for their steadfastness and devotion to the State.“These are people who have risked their lives for the State knowing fully that they were risking their lives and they could have been killed,” he said. He said to prevent ECOMIG forces from entering as a force of occupation the current Chief of Defence Staff who was outside the country had to be sent by President Barrow to come to the Gambia as a security advisor to serve as liaison between the security forces and the ECOMIG contingent“ECOMIG entered the Gambia as a force of solidarity and not a force of occupation,” he said.Sallah said essentially power was handed to the president-elect, Barrow without any life and government property been lost and no bank looted.He said it was the PDOIS 2015 Congress Resolution that was implemented in collaboration with other stakeholders that effected change and President Barrow came to power.Sallah said the government should have been a transitional one that serve as an end to self-perpetuating rule and ensure civic awareness. He said the New Gambia should be embraced by the birth of new Gambians who will be sovereign and know that power belongs to them.“The people should be enlightened to be united as a nation,” Sallah said.He said the transition should address the question, who is citizen because the previous governments have failed to address it. He put forward that the issue of citizenship could only be addressed when proper documentation of the citizens take place so as to avoid fraudulent acquisition of citizenship. He said for his party, they are of the view that every person born in a village or any community should be recorded and computerized so that no person can have access to acquire citizenship fraudulently.On the Constitutional Review, Sallah said PDOIS proposed a 2-term limit of 4 years and that the death penalty be revoked. Also, whenever the office of the President becomes vacant, elections should take place with 90 days. He said PDOIS also believes that the right to life, liberty, freedom from torture and unlawful arrest and detention, bail, property among other rights should be enshrined in the new Constitution and there should be institutions to support those rights. Sallah added that the country should be a secular state.“It is very clear that without socialization, we cannot have a cooperative society. If we were to have a cooperative society, socialization must start from our homes and also with educational institutions. We must be able to impart the values that would enable us live as a united nation,” he said.Sallah said PDOIS will introduce an education that will focus primarily on citizenship education for building of a sovereign Gambian who would have the right to self-determination and self-reliance that will go through all the other institutions.He remarked, “The objective is to build a self-determined and self-reliant human being who is capable of ensuring the self-reliance and self-determination of the Republic”.Sallah said the 1 December 2016 elections was the first time in the history of The Gambia for power to be transferred through the ballot box.“For PDOIS this was our achievement, we effected the change and it was President Barrow’s responsibility to exercise direction and control over an executive and prepare the ground for the type of policies and the institutions that will effect what the Coalition aspired for; an inclusive Gambia, transparent and accountable Gambia where institutions will serve the people with devotion.We expected a transition where a new Constitution will emerge and empower the citizenry; ensure the accountability of elected representatives to the population and ensure that services are delivered to address the needs and aspirations of the people with efficiency and effectiveness.”Sallah said PDOIS wanted to achieve that by remaining together and have independent candidates for both the National Assembly and the local government elections so that they build The New Gambia that will serve as a platform for system change.“The quality of regime change would have eradicated self-perpetuating rule, ensure civic awareness so that we will be able to move forward to another change where elections will be held on a level ground, parties will be given the mandate to contest on a level ground and build the type of Gambia we all aspire for,” he said.Sallah said what exists today is that the country has an executive president and whether he serves 3 or 5 years is entirely left to him because the Coalition existed in the past but not in the present.Sallah said during the PDOIS Congress, it was noted that the party went into the National Assembly and Local Government elections unprepared because the level ground that was sought by the opposition parties in 2015 for Electoral and Constitutional Reform in The Gambia did not exist.“After the change, parties sought resources wherever they wanted and the executive president decided to favour whoever he wanted and ultimately we have a country that has gone to the same political level as it were in the previous regimes because there was no level ground for multi-party elections,” he said.He said PDOIS has succeeded in ensuring that people know that sovereignty resides in them which is the basis of putting an end to self-perpetuating rule.Sallah said the problems that the country has been facing since independence to date cannot be solved when the country continues to depend on taxation as its source of funding.“The government should ensure that it builds sovereign national wealth,” Sallah said.He said the first republic collapsed because the revenue that was generated could not pay for expenditures. He added that the export could not pay for the import and that was why they introduced the Economic Recovery Programme (ERP), destroyed the PWD and sold the public enterprises and banks.“That was when PDOIS came into being, in 1986,” he said.He added that the second republic was faced with the same situation where the debt was increasing.“The new government has 56 billion on its head. Just recently the 2019 budget is 28 billion dalasis but the revenue estimates of 25 billion dalasis cannot pay for the 28 billion. So, 3.4 billion must be borrowed somewhere to meet the budget expenditure and 13.5 billion must come from budget support. Only 1 billion will come from non-tax revenue and we have to pay 2.7 billion as interest on debts. How are you going to pay it when you can only raise 1 billion from non-tax sources and the rest from taxation? Is that sustainable? No,” he said.He added: “In trade the deficit is 24 billion, exporting domestically is 613 million and re-export is about 400 million whilst we are importing over 25 billion. So, the same disease that existed in the first and second republic is continuing during the transition.”He said the PDOIS Congress Resolution affirms that Gambia must build sovereign national wealth rather than a company being given the whole responsibility of mining in Batokunku, Sanyang and Kartong where minerals were being mined over the years without any form of information coming to the public.Sallah said the existing government has given the responsibility to a Company whereas the country does not have any national institution that is established to partner with it on a 50-50 basis.“Is that what is going to create sovereign national wealth?” he asked.Sallah averred that the government has entered into a fisheries agreement with the EU which the government could have capitalized on to secure jobs for Gambians.He remarked, “We could have 50% of the crew in those vessels as Gambians.”He said socialism has been misconstrued by many people.“PDOIS has been guiding the nation that our resources and terrestrial and marine belong to us,” he said.“We will not allow anyone to take control of our resources and use our people to make wealth at their expense. Instead of giving land to companies to employ women, we will utilise sovereign national wealth to establish a cooperative bank to give seeds, fertiliser and farm implements to these women to work on the land and share the benefits of their produce,” he added.“Those who fish in our waters would have to employ our people to constitute half the crew and land half their catch to be processed in the country. The gains should also go to enable Gambia to have fishing trawlers.Investors will always be required to have Gambian partners or enter into Public private partnerships.“The Congress has resolved that the fundamental task of PDOIS now is to work with anyone to build a New Gambian who will effect system change. We also resolved that the new Gambian must be a sovereign Gambian. We believe in cooperative sovereignty which creates a bond among Gambians irrespective of their ethno linguistic origin, gender, religion and other social status. As a citizen no one is minority; we are all equal in sovereignty, we all belong to the majority –the citizenry”Halifa Sallah has called on those involved in maligning and defaming the Gambian media to remember those trying times when the coalition’s only access to the Gambian population was through that same media.“We must remember the courage of the media in accepting all forms of intimidation but remaining persistent in echoing the voice of the coalition. So those who today malign the media must remember those trying times when our only access to the population was this very media that is here present today,” the PDOIS Secretary General said at a press conference held on Sunday.
Ahead of Sunday’s Premier League encounter between Chelsea and Fulham, the BT Sport pundit Michael Owen has hailed the Cottagers’ striker Aleksandar MitrovicA poor haul of just five points from their opening 12 Premier League matches has seen the returnees rooted to the bottom of the table. A dreadful spell has culminated with Slavisa Jokanovic’s farewell.Claudio Ranieri was appointed the replacement of the very man who led Fulham back to the English top flight. In his first match in charge, the Whites have wrapped up their second win of the season by beating the struggling Southampton side 3-2 at home.The Serbian striker Aleksandar Mitrovic was the author of two goals, including the one that eventually brought Fulham a much-needed triumph.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…With the Lily Whites heading to Stamford Bridge to meet Chelsea, Michael Owen has emphasized Mitrovic’s importance for the west London outfit, which has been broadcasted by TheSportsReview.com.“Aleksandar Mitrovic was highly influential in helping Fulham to playoff success last season, and his goals are going to be equally important in the race for survival. He bagged a brace last week and now has seven so far this season,” he told BetVictor.“He can be backed at 11/4 to find the net here. However, the task will be tough as despite an uncharacteristic performance when meekly losing 3-1 against Spurs last week the Pensioners are still enjoying a productive season.”The 24-year-old striker has netted seven goals in the Premier League this term, which puts him on a par with last season’s top goalscorers Mohamed Salah and Harry Kane.

A customer selects his number of Reliance Jio Infocomm 4G mobile services in Mumbai on September 6, 2016.INDRANIL MUKHERJEE/AFP/Getty ImagesIndia’s telecom regulator TRAI’s latest decision to cut international call termination rate to 30 paise per minute from 53 paise a minute will severely impact the revenue of older telcos such as Bharti Airtel, Idea Cellular and Vodafone India, while giving a massive advantage to Reliance Jio Infocomm — newest telecom player, reported Mint.Following this move, Bharti Airtel’s annualised EBITDA will take a hit of Rs 500 crore, where the combined entity of Idea Cellular and Vodafone India will take a hit of around Rs 620 crore, a report by Kotak Institutional Equities has said.Ebitda — earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortisation — is mostly used to compare profitability between companies as it eliminates the effects of financing and accounting decisions.The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) had in September last year cut interconnection usage charges (IUC) levied by telecom firms by 57 percent to 6 paise per minute from 14 paise.The move caused a loss of over Rs 4,000 crore annually to Bharti Airtel and Vodafone-Idea Cellular, while benefitting Reliance Jio, which would annually save around Rs 5,000 crore.As per TRAI’s latest rule, the new international call termination rate will come into effect from February 1. According to the rule, the termination charge is payable by an international long-distance operator to the Indian telecom operator on whose network an overseas call terminates, reported the business daily.”The cut is negative, but will not have a huge impact on the sector as such because the volume of incoming voice traffic is not that much,” a market analyst speaking on the condition of anonymity told Mint.Bharti Enterprises Chairman Sunil Mittal had earlier written a letter to TRAI Chairman RS Sharma saying: “The current IUC regime is already well below cost,” and asked the regulator to set the rate at “costs discovered through a fair and transparent mechanism”.”COAI is of the view that the reduction in international termination charge is against national interest, as the country will lose precious foreign exchange,” Mint quoted Rajan Mathews, director general of Cellular Operators’ Association of India (COAI), as saying.”That Jio was the only major access provider in India to support a cut in international termination charge is interesting to note. We understand that Jio has a minuscule market share of the current international termination market in India; however, this would have changed over time as Jio gained share, we believe,” the Kotak report further said.

A criminal court in San José on Monday sentenced former National Liberation Party (PLN) lawmaker Maureen Ballestero to three years in prison, although the sentence was reduced to probation.In a plea agreement, Ballestero pleaded guilty to two counts of embezzlement for using Public Security Ministry aircraft to attend personal activities in 2009.The former lawmaker, who served from 2006-2010, was banned from serving in public office for three years, and must serve the prison sentence if convicted of another crime in the future.The court ordered her to pay the government $3,190 in damages, plus trial costs.In 2009, Ballestero – then vice president of the Legislative Assembly – used Public Security Ministry planes to fly to Liberia, Guanacaste, where she was supposed to attend working meetings. But during the trips she also attended PLN regional assemblies leading up to the 2010 presidential campaign.Ballestero’s daughter, Natalia Chávez Ballestero, who also was charged with one count of embezzlement for accompaning her mother, was sentenced to 120 hours of community service at the National Police Academy.Judge Hugo Porter warned Chávez that the “community service must be performed at Police Academy facilities and not through any electronic means.”Following the sentencing, Ballestero told reporters she does not rule out a run for public office after the 36-month ban expires.She said she would wait for a “sign from God.” Facebook Comments
