Archaeological dig for Indigenous villages should have happened before massive music festival

first_imgKenneth Jackson APTN National NewsIt’s a hot summer day in Oro-Medonte near Barrie, Ontario.Some may say it’s just the right weather for the annual three-day WayHome Music & Arts Festival featuring big groups like The Killers, Arcade Fire and A Tribe Called Red.Festival-goers began arriving and setting up their tents Friday. As they did, they were welcomed by locals holding placards.The protesters oppose the festival — they say it’s too loud, not properly zoned and something else.There’s supposed be an archaeological dig for ancient Indigenous villages, and possibly burials.Documents suggest there is potential for them to be there, and WayHome is expected to do tests this fall to be sure.But that’s not soon enough for local residents.APTN put questions to Wayhome‎ on the allegations, but they believe much is being made out of nothing.‎”No archaeological sites or artifacts have been identified on the properties,” said Ryan Howes, a spokesperson for WayHome.“We have been following due process in regard to First Nations interests and will continue to engage with them as we work though our rezoning.”KJackson@aptn.calast_img read more

Attack on presidential compound in Mogadishu condemned by UN officials

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and his Special Representative in Somalia, Nicholas Kay, joined members of the Security Council in strong condemnation of the attack against the compound of the President of Somalia in the capital, Mogadishu, and urged the authorities and people to fight against extremism. In a statement from his spokesperson in New York, Mr. Ban paid tribute to the Somali National Forces and the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) for their “efficient and professional response” in repelling the attackers from the palace, known as Villa Somalia.The UN chief also reached out to the families of the killed, expressing his condolences, and wishing the injured a speedy recovery. Somalia’s Al-Shabaab insurgent group has claimed responsibility, according to media reports.The attack comes just days after Al-Shabaab insurgents allegedly launched an attack near a UN convoy near the Mogadishu airport. In today’s statement, Mr. Ban said he was concerned that the recent attacks perpetrated by Al Shabaab “are clearly aimed at destabilizing the country at a time when many efforts are being mobilized to restore peace and development.”He reiterated the UN’s “unwavering” support for efforts to build a peaceful and stable Somalia.In a separate statement, the members of the Security Council underlined the need to bring perpetrators, organizers, financiers and sponsors of these reprehensible acts of terrorism to justice, and urged all States, in accordance with their obligations under international law and relevant Council resolutions, to cooperate actively with the Somali authorities in this regard.“This is another desperate and criminal act which does nothing but harm to the people of Somalia” said Mr. Kay, after speaking to President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, who was not hurt in the attack.“The Somali people are tired of shootings, bombings and killings,” noted Mr. Kay who heads the UN political mission in the country (UNSOM). “It’s time for a new chapter in Somalia’s history and we cannot allow a slide back at this critical time.” UNSOM is mandated by the Security Council to support State building and peacebuilding with a focus on good governance, security sector reform, rule of law, human rights, providing “good offices” for mediation and political reconciliation and coordination of international assistance which is done by UN agencies and partners. read more

PICS Six dead thousands evacuated in central Europe floods

first_imgA general view shows the flooded center of Passau, southern German (Matthias Schrader/AP)THE CZECH CAPITAL Prague was on high flood alert today with businesses shut and transport coming to a halt after torrential rains left at least six people dead and forced thousands from their homes across central Europe.Czech rescue crews were searching for four others believed to have died in the flooding which cut power to tens of thousands of households across the Czech Republic, Austria and Germany.The heavy rainfall has triggered nightmarish memories of devastating floods that killed dozens in the region in 2002.In the Czech Republic, the government declared a state of emergency Sunday, deploying 2,000 troops in its rescue drive as five people died, several were missing and over 6,000 evacuated from their homes, officials said.“We register five people who have died in relation to the flood. We are also looking for another four people believed to have died because of the flooding,” police spokeswoman Pavla Kopecka told AFP, adding that the missing people were out in canoes.Firemen build an anti-flood barrier on Luznice river in Bechyne, Czech Republi (David Veis/Czech News Agency/PA).Two people died in a collapsed summer house south of Prague and three men drowned in rivers or drains in different parts of the country.The Czech capital was under water today, with metro stations and schools shut as the Vltava river rose, flooding parts of the historic city centre.“You realise here what nature can do. How helpless we really are despite having all our technology,” Prague pensioner Helena Holubova said, watching the water rise from a bridge over the Vltava in central Prague. The river was expected to peak in the capital later Monday.“We are closed for now, we’ve moved the equipment out and we have 30-40 centimetresof water inside,” Nikol Voborilova who works in a Prague restaurant by the river told AFP.Firemen build an anti-flood barrier on Luznice river in Bechyne, Czech Republic (David Veis/Czech News Agency/PA).Thousands of households were hit with power outages while fallen trees snarled rail traffic across western regions.Heavy rain was expected to pelt the country until Monday afternoon, when forecasts called for it to taper off.Flooding also deluged neighbouring Germany and Austria, killing at least one person there.Two were reported missing and hundreds were also evacuated as landslides threatened their homes, mostly around the western Austrian city of Salzburg bordering Germany and in the north.Members of the red cross make their way by boats in the flooded street in the center of Passau, southern Germany (Matthias Schrader/AP).Austrian authorities warned the Danube and the Inn rivers could surpass levels from 2002, when the country suffered its last major flooding which caused up to 7.5 billion euros ($9.8 billion) in damage.Memories of the 2002 flood also spooked residents in the nearby German city of Passau.“A lot of people who already had to cope with major flooding in 2002 are refusing to leave their homes,” Passau mayor Jurgen Duppen told Germany’s N24 TV channel.Budapest and Bratislava were also bracing for the Danube river which snakes through both cities to peak today.Zoo Prague flooded by swollen Vltava river in Prague, Czech Republic (Katerina Sulova/Czech News Agency/PA).Water levels in Germany on the Danube, Inn and Ilz rivers have already surpassed records from previous heavy floods in 1954 and 2002.“We’re in shock. We had to leave home in the blink of an eye,” a woman in the eastern German city of Dresden told the NTV channel.She and her baby spent the night at a community centre, like thousands of others evacuated in the eastern region of Saxony.Two people were reported missing in Germany since yesterday. Flooding increased today in the southern and eastern regions also forcing thousands out of their homes.The army has been called in to help with the rescue efforts hampered by power outages.A beergarden is flooded at the lake Chiemsee in Chieming near Traunstein, southern Germany (Matthias Schrader/AP).- © AFP 2013.Read:You think it rains a lot in Ireland now.

Le smartphone Nokia 801 tournera sous lOS Carla

first_imgLe smartphone Nokia 801 tournera sous l’OS CarlaLe mobile Nokia 801 devrait être le premier terminal de la marque à être équipé du système d’exploitation Carla.Si quelques informations avaient fuité au sujet du smartphone Nokia 801, de nouvelles rumeurs viennent peu à peu contredire les précédentes. Car il apparaît maintenant, selon Ubergizmo, que le mobile serait le premier terminal Nokia a bénéficier du système d’exploitation Carla, et non de l’OS Symbian Belle. Le Nokia 801 possèdera également un écran AMOLED 4 pouces (10 cm) affichant en 640×360 pixels, un processeur cadencé à 1.4GHz, 512Mo de mémoire vive et un capteur numérique de 12 Mégapixels enregistrant par ailleurs en 1080p. Mais il est sans doute trop tôt dans le développement de l’appareil pour que Nokia l’annonce lors du Mobile World Congress qui débutera le 27 février prochain à Barcelone. D’un point de vue technique, les caractéristiques du Nokia 801 devraient cependant rester les mêmes.Le 26 février 2012 à 09:06 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

PM Minnis promotes TeamOne Bahamas concept towards creating worldclass status for country

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, January 23, 2018 – Nassau – The Bahamas will attain world-class status as a country and a people only when all of its citizens unite under a One Bahamas or Team Bahamas concept, Prime Minister, Dr. the Hon. Hubert A. Minnis said.“We are first and foremost Team Bahamas. While we have our different political, religious and other affiliations, we have a shared vision and ambition to make ours a land of opportunity, with a commitment to the common good, to social justice and to helping the least among us to leading better lives,” the Prime Minister said.“We are Bahamians before we are PLP, DNA or FNM. When we cheer our athletes in international competition, we do so as fellow Bahamians, as Team Bahamas.  We pledge allegiance to one flag in love and unity.  While we may rush as Saxons, Valley Boys, Music Makers, One Family, Roots, Colours [or any] of the other groups, we all share a love of Junkanoo as an expression of our history and heritage.”Addressing the Jones Communications Network’s Person of the Year and Civil Society Awards (Friday, January 19) at the Jones Communications Media Centre, University Drive, Prime Minister Minnis said while The Bahamas may have a number of challenges as a country in terms of social and economic development and fighting crime, the country also has many possibilities.“At the end of my address at The Bahamas Business Outlook Seminar (held Thursday, January 18), I noted that if we harness the energy of our people; if we harness the energy of the sun and renewable power; if we harness the many advantages of our archipelago of possibilities – we will have embarked in earnest in creating a new and world-class Bahamas,” Prime Minister Minnis said.“To accomplish this vision, we need to have One Bahamas and indeed what I want to call Team Bahamas.  I include in this, the Bahamian Diaspora around the world.”Using Cabinet as an example of how being “one team” can best serve the interests of the Bahamian people, Prime Minister Minnis said every Prime Minister has his/her strengths and limitations.  Being surrounded by a good team, Dr. Minnis continued, can help a Prime Minister to build upon his/her strengths and to work with others in terms of one’s limitations.“As I mentioned in a message to Parliamentary colleagues last year, ours is not a Presidential system.  There is no chief executive in our system of government.  We are a Westminster-based system in which executive authority is vested in the Queen and exercised on her behalf, by the Governor-General.“The Cabinet has general direction and control of the Government and is collectively responsible to Parliament. Our system demands collegiality, collaboration and teamwork.“I know from my experience as a surgeon that having a good team is essential.  As Prime Minister and as Leader, I know that I will only be as effective as the team with which I work,” Prime Minister Minnis said.By: Matt Maura (BIS)Photo caption: Prime Minister, Dr. the Hon.

Officials demand Kevin Beiser resign from San Diego Unified School Board

The party also invited Beiser to attend the Tuesday night meeting, but he declined, according to party Chair Will Rodriguez-Kennedy.Beiser issued a statement Tuesday night denying the allegations and suggesting they were politically motivated.“We will take swift action against any public official who uses their power to abuse others,” Rodriguez-Kennedy said. “Kevin Beiser is entitled to his day in court, but we believe that he has lost the confidence of the public and will not be able to focus on the important work of the people.”A lawsuit filed Monday named Beiser and his spouse, Dan Mock, as defendants, alleging that Beiser date-raped the plaintiff and made increasingly aggressive and physically abusive attempts to seduce him between 2013 and last year.The suit also alleges that Mock failed to help the anonymous victim when he was being abused at the couple’s home.Further reporting by Voice of San Diego revealed that four other men corroborated similar interactions with Beiser in recent years. All five alleged victims were locally involved in politics in some way.Local Democratic Party officials condemned Tuesday’s initial reports of Beiser’s alleged sexual misconduct, but pumped the brakes on calling for his resignation until a vote could be taken. With the vote, the local Democratic Party joins a rapidly growing chorus of local political officials, groups and LGBTQ community leaders to call for Beiser to step down.San Diego Democrats for Equality, the Republican Party of San Diego County, San Diego Unified School Board President Sharon Whitehurst-Payne and a joint group made up of Sen. Toni Atkins, D-San Diego, Assemblyman Todd Gloria, D-San Diego, San Diego City Council members Georgette Gomez, Jennifer Campbell and Chris Ward, Carlsbad City Councilwoman Cori Schumacher, Chula Vista City Councilman Stephen Padilla and Encinitas City Councilman Joe Mosca all called for Beiser to resign from the board.In a statement issued Tuesday, the joint group said: “As LGBT elected officials who are committed to changing the overarching cultural and political climate to prevent sexual harassment, we want to ensure that every complaint is fully investigated and appropriately decided. That said, even following the principles of due process, there are cases, especially those with multiple and severe allegations, where the obvious right thing is for the accused to step away from their position. This is one of those cases.”Beiser, who was elected to the school board in 2010, is currently a math teacher at Castle Park Middle School in Chula Vista. He has also filed to run for San Diego City Council next year in District 7.

Murkowski Shell decision shows how feds chase business away

first_imgSen. Lisa Murkowski says news that Shell is pulling out of the Alaskan Arctic hit her hard.“Heartsick. Kick in the gut. Just really devastated,” she said, speaking as she walked through the Capitol on her way to a Senate vote Monday.Murkowski says dry holes are a fact of oil exploration, but she blames the federal government for curtailing Shell, and for frustrating Alaskan efforts to portray itself as “open for business.”“You’ve got a very, very difficult federal regulatory environment that can chase that business away,” she said. “And we saw that over the course of seven years and$7 billion of commitment from Shell.”Murkowski, who as chairman of the Senate Energy Committee, helps shape the nation’s energy policy, named one government decision as a particularly troubling impediment. The company intended to run two drilling rigs at the same time, nine miles apart. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said no, citing a pre-existing rule requiring a 15-mile buffer between rigs to protect walrus. Murkowski says forcing the company to use just one rig at a time was big blow to Shell.“That wasn’t part of what they had anticipated. That was a huge financial setback for them — having that rig on standby,” she said.Officials at the Interior Department said repeatedly they were holding Shell to rigorous standards to protect the environment.Shell’s global priorities may have played a role in its decision, too. In April, Shell’s CEO said the company aimed to pare down to three types of businesses, which did not seem to include the Chukchi project. Company executives labeled the Arctic a “longer term option,” a category they slated for review and reduction.last_img read more

Hulu Says 70 of Its 82 Million Viewers Are on AdSupported Plan

first_imgHulu sells an ad-free version of its streaming service, just like Netflix. But the majority of Hulu subscribers are on the $5.99-per-month ad-supported plan, which is half the price of the $11.99 no-commercials version.Hulu has previously disclosed subscriber numbers — announcing 28 million customer accounts earlier this month — but hasn’t broken those out by plan type.Now Hulu, which in the past month became fully ensconced under Disney’s wing, has provided some context around the size of its audience base. Overall, it has 82 million viewers (meaning there’s an average of 2.9 viewers per Hulu account). And of those, about 70%, or 58 million, are on the ad-supported plan, according to Peter Naylor, senior VP, head of advertising sales, citing comScore estimates.Hulu’s ad business is a significant source of revenue, generating almost $1.5 billion in ad revenue in 2018. To that end, Hulu strives to make the way it presents advertising is viewer-friendly — otherwise it risks pushing those subscribers to the zero-advertising tier or losing them altogether, said Naylor, speaking Wednesday at VideoNuze’s Video Advertising Summit in New York. Popular on Variety ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ Stars Tease How Saga Ends What’s Coming to Hulu in September 2019 “Conventional TV has hit its ceiling, and that ceiling is coming down,” Naylor said. Video services that are growing are “the ones that look like TV but are better.”On the subject of Disney’s recent deal with Comcast giving the Mouse House full control — and eventually full ownership — of Hulu, Naylor said being under one owner “will help us move faster.” Disney CEO Bob Iger has said the media conglomerate intends to invest more in Hulu’s content and expand into international markets.Down the road, Hulu may be available in new bundle options, similar to Hulu’s deal with Spotify. Disney has said it’s likely that it will eventually bundle Hulu, Disney Plus, and ESPN Plus together in some fashion.Currently, Hulu offers an on-demand lineup with some 85,000 TV episodes and movies. In addition to licensed content, Naylor called out Hulu original series, including season 3 of “The Handmaid’s Tale” (which premieres June 5), Aidy Bryant’s “Shrill,” and George Clooney’s “Catch-22.” Upcoming projects include “Little Fires Everywhere,” starring and co-executive producers by Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington, and “Wu-Tang: An American Saga,” a fictionalized history of the rise of the hip-hop group from Brian Grazer and Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA.center_img Related “We have to restrain ourselves. You can’t just jam ads because you need to make a number,” Naylor said. “We want to have an experience for viewers that is consistent.”There will always be “ad-avoiders,” but the majority of consumers have some level of ad acceptance, according to Naylor.As part of the goal of not irritating viewers, Hulu now caps the length of all ad breaks at 90 seconds (and in some cases less). It has long shown how much time is left in an ad pod with a countdown clock in the corner. “We want to be viewer-first,” Naylor said. “You don’t put ads where people don’t expect them.”Even so, a 90-second ad break is “still an intrusive model,” Naylor said, and Hulu has been experimenting with less intrusive models. After research showed Hulu users pause content 1 billion times per month, it began running “pause ads” on screens with select advertisers.Now Hulu is planning to introduce an ad product tailored to binge-watchers with contextually relevant messages; per Naylor, 50% of Hulu users engage in bingeing, defined at watching three or more  episodes in one session. For example, that might be a spot from delivery service DoorDash saying “We know you’re bingeing – how about you get some food?”Another idea Hulu is pitching: Sponsors could tell viewers who have watched two consecutive episodes of a show that it will be brought to them without additional ads if they a 90-second commercial. Hulu’s thesis is that these formats are “pretty much welcome in light of the fact that most experiences are truly interruptive,” said Naylor.Asked whether Netflix or Amazon Prime Video might move to introduce ad-supported tiers like Hulu, Naylor allowed that it’s a possibility. If ad-free subscription VOD platforms decide to jump into the ad business, they would likely have lighter ad loads than TV and “informed targeting,” ultimately accelerating the long, slow decline of traditional television advertising, he said. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Stitik, M.D., president of the New Jersey Society of PM&R, and Cliff Gronseth, M.D., founder of Spine West-Physiatry & Sports Physicians. Stitik discussed the advantages of using ultrasound guidance in shoulder injections, and Gronseth presented a case study on a partial tear of the biceps tendon at the radial tuberosity.While physiatrists have historically relied on their understanding of anatomy and physical examination, the use of ultrasound is growing in importance for diagnosis, treatment planning and interventions, such as guided injections in pain management. Ultrasound may also be an excellent adjunct to EMG nerve conduction and help enhance the patient-provider relationship, including assisting with patient education regarding their diagnosis and therapy.Konica Minolta sponsored two Learning Center Workshops dedicated to imaging and ultrasound-guided chemodenervation, as well as eight Ultrasound Workshops. The workshops, directed by leading experts in physiatry, were designed to provide a hands-on and interactive learning experience.The company also showcased the SonImage HS1, an advanced and compact ultrasound system with musculoskeletal (MSK) functionality providing superior image detail and contrast resolution, along with the new portable J5 Ultrasound System.SonImage HS1 delivers superior image quality and needle visualization to support rapid, confident decisions at the point-of-care, according to the company. A simplified eight-button console and intuitive touch screen combine with focused MSK exam presets to minimize the learning curve. Enhanced signal penetration, increased color flow sensitivity and improved resolution deliver detailed tissue differentiation, enabling clinicians to detect structures as small as several hundred microns. In conjunction with beam-steering technology, the HS1 incorporates an advanced algorithm that utilizes both the in-plane and the out-of-plane methods to improve needle visibility, especially in steep angle approaches.
