In the news today June 15

first_imgFive stories in the news for Friday, June 15———HIGH COURT TO RULE ON RELIGIOUS LAW SCHOOLLawyers, religious groups and private universities are awaiting today’s landmark Supreme Court of Canada decision involving a proposed Christian law school in British Columbia. The case hinges on whether law societies in B.C. and Ontario can refuse to license graduates of the law school at Trinity Western University, which requires all students to agree to a community covenant prohibiting sex outside of a marriage between a man and a woman. The societies say the covenant discriminates against LGBTQ people, while the university maintains it has a right to freedom of religion as a private institution.———UP ALL NIGHT ON PARLIAMENT HILLAs Thursday night turned into Friday morning, MPs continued to vote on a seemingly endless series of motions aimed at compelling the Liberals to divulge details of their planned carbon pricing scheme. Conservative finance critic Pierre Poilievre said his goal was to make the government “as uncomfortable as possible until they tell the truth” about how much more Canadians will pay for everything from groceries to gasoline because of the carbon price. The Conservatives had lined up more than 200 votes on the government’s main spending plan.———YOUNG SISTERS SHOT AT TORONTO PLAYGROUNDTwo sisters, ages five and nine, were seriously injured during a “brazen” daylight shooting at a playground in Toronto’s east end, authorities said Thursday. Toronto police Det. Sgt. Jim Gotell told reporters at the scene that the girls were rushed to the Hospital for Sick Children and both are expected to survive. He said at least seven shots were fired and investigators believe the intended target was a man who was among the 11 children in the playground. Earlier in the evening, Toronto police Chief Mark Saunders told reporters that both girls required surgery, and called those behind the shooting “cowards.”———SENTENCING SCHEDULED IN VICIOUS SEXUAL ASSAULTA southern Alberta man is to be sentenced today for a vicious sexual assault on a woman who spent weeks in a coma and was forced to learn how to walk and talk again. Denzel Dre Colton Bird pleaded guilty last fall to striking the then-25-year-old woman from behind with a metal pipe in 2016, dragging her into an alley and sexually assaulting her. Bird will be sentenced for aggravated sexual assault and an additional charge of break and enter. The Crown is requesting 20 years in prison, while the defence has argued that Bird should receive an additional six years on top of the time he’s already spent in custody.———HAILSTORM HITS SOUTHERN PRAIRIESParts of southern Saskatchewan and Manitoba were pounded by hail and heavy rain in a storm that included tornado warnings in some areas. There were reports of baseball-size hail as Environment Canada says a supercell moved through the region Thursday, creating favourable conditions for the heavy weather. The storm knocked power out in some communities and concerns about lightning prompted officials to temporarily halt a CFL game in Winnipeg between the Blue Bombers and the Edmonton Eskimos.———ALSO IN THE NEWS TODAY:— Statistics Canada releases the Canada’s international transactions in securities for April and the monthly survey of manufacturing for April— Saskatchewan Corrections Minister Christine Tell and RCMP Assistant Commissioner Curtis Zablocki announce two RCMP crime reduction teams in Regina.— Trial date to be set in Ottawa for former hostage Joshua Boyle, who faces assault charges.— Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan and Minister Carla Qualtrough participate in the steel cutting ceremony for the Royal Canadian Navy’s first of two joint support ships in North Vancouver.last_img read more

On Saturday, Modi had urged his supporters to take the ‘main bhai chowkidar’ (I too am watchman) pledge, saying he is not alone in the fight against graft and social evils. Following his appeal all BJP leaders, including party chief Amit Shah and Union ministers, prefixed the word ‘chowkidar’ to their names in their Twitter profile as they sought people’s support in the Lok Sabha elections.last_img read more

Experts at UNbacked meeting lay foundation for global cybersecurity roadmap

“The legal, technical and institutional challenges posed by cyber-threats and cybercrime are global and far-reaching, and can only be addressed through a coherent strategy taking into account the role of different stakeholders and existing initiatives, within a framework of international cooperation,” Hamadoun Touré, Secretary-General of the UN International Telecommunication Union (ITU), said at the meeting on 5 October in Geneva.This was the first-ever gathering of the High-Level Experts Group for the ITU’s Global Cybersecurity Agenda, and it drew 60 experts from governments, the private sector, academia, research institutions and regional and international organizations.“New and emerging threats to cybersecurity cannot be solved by any one nation alone,” President of Costa Rica and Nobel peace prize laureate Óscar Arias Sánchez said in a special address.“There is an urgent need for an international framework, giving us international principles and allowing rapid coordination between countries at the regional and global levels,” added Mr. Arias, who also serves as the Patron of the Global Cybersecurity Agenda.Participants at the one-day meeting decided that the next steps to be taken to lay the foundation for the anti-cybercrime agenda are to study five key areas – legal measures, technical and procedural measures, organizational structures, capacity building and international cooperation – in depth to create a global roadmap to bolster cybersecurity. 8 October 2007Experts at a United Nations-backed conference have agreed to jointly take action to combat the constantly evolving and increasingly sophisticated challenges posed by cybercrime. read more

2006 on track to be 6th warmest year on record UN meteorological

The year 2006 is currently estimated to be the sixth warmest on record with prolonged drought in some regions, heavy rainfall and flooding in others and deadly typhoons in south-east Asia, according to the latest update by the United Nations World Meteorological Organization (WMO).The global mean surface temperature is currently estimated to be 0.42 degrees Celsius above the 1961-1990 annual average of 14C (57.2 degrees fahrenheit), according to records maintained by WMO members. Many UN officials, agencies and reports have warned of the human role in producing the greenhouse gases blamed for global warming and the UN-backed Kyoto Protocol seeks to significantly reduce such emissions, but just this week the WMO reported that no firm link can yet be drawn between human-induced climate change and variations in intensity and frequency of tropical cyclones. The year also continues the pattern of sharply decreasing Arctic sea ice, with the September rate declining by some 8.59 per cent every decade, or 60,421 square kilometres per year. The agency will not release final figures for 2006 until March, but preliminary findings show that, averaged separately, temperatures for the northern hemisphere (0.58C above a 30-year mean of 14.6C/58.28F) are likely to be the fourth warmest and for the southern hemisphere (0.26C above a 30-year mean of 13.4C/56.12F) the seventh warmest in the instrumental record from 1861. Since the start of the 20th century, the global average surface temperature has risen approximately 0.7C, but this has not been continuous. Since 1976, the global average has risen sharply, at 0.18C per decade. In both hemispheres, the period 1997-2006 averaged 0.53C and 0.27C above the 1961-1990 mean, respectively. The beginning of 2006 was unusually mild in large parts of North America and the western European Arctic islands, though there were harsh winter conditions in Asia, Russia and parts of eastern Europe. Canada experienced its mildest winter and spring on record and the United States its warmest January-September on record. Persistent extreme heat affected much of eastern Australia from late December 2005 until early March with many records being set, with the southern spring the warmest since seasonal records were first compiled in 1950. Heat waves were also registered in Brazil from January until March and in several parts of Europe with record temperatures in July and August. Long-term drought continued in parts of the Greater Horn of Africa including parts of Burundi, Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, and Tanzania and at least 11 million people were affected by food shortages. Somalia was hit by the worst drought in a decade. Drought also affected China, southern Brazil, parts of the US while in Australia, lack of rain added to significant longer-term dry conditions. Heavy rains and floods seriously affected North, East and West Africa, including rare heavy rainfall and severe flooding in the Sahara Desert region of Tindouf, as well as Bolivia, Ecuador and Suriname in South America, the Philippines, eastern Europe and the New England region of the US. Floods are said to be the worst in 50 years in the Great Horn of Africa region. Fourteen typhoons developed in south-east Asia, killing thousands of people and causing billions of damage. WMO global temperature analyses are based on the combined dataset from the Hadley Centre of the British Met Office and the Climatic Research Unit, University of East Anglia, and statistics from the US Department of Commerce’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. read more

Heating adjustments being made on campus

Fall marks the time of year when the leaves change colour, the weather cools and Brock’s Facilities Management staff prepare the main campus for its switch to heating.Due to the type of heating and cooling systems that are used by the University, many main campus buildings are not capable of heating and cooling during the same cycle.As Brock experiences the typical fall season daily cycles of low nighttime temperatures and higher daytime temperatures, some areas on the main campus may experience fluctuating temperatures during regular office hours.Facilities Management staff will continue to make the campus as comfortable as possible by bringing in fresh, warm air into the areas until full daytime heating is required.If heating and cooling issues are experienced, refrain from attempting to moderate the temperatures by making major adjustments to the thermostats, as this may have a detrimental effect.If an area is experiencing extreme or ongoing temperature issues, notify Facilities Management at x3717 or email so that situation may be investigated. read more

Verizon blocks Google Wallet on Galaxy Nexus

first_imgThis may not be enough to make Android fans switch to iOS, but it is an annoying result of multiple businesses jockeying for control over a phone. Despite the Galaxy Nexus’s NFC chip, Verizon is blocking the Google Wallet payment system from the handset.Verizon is shutting it out because of — you guessed it — money. The carrier is an invested partner in Isis, a competing mobile payment system. As is so often the case when software makers, hardware makers, and wireless providers collide, the wireless providers are having the last say.If this is enough to make you hold out for an unconfirmed AT&T or T-Mobile Galaxy Nexus, think again. Those two carriers are partnering with Verizon on the Isis system. The only US holdout is Sprint, who also happens to offer the only official support for Google Wallet with their Nexus S 4G.Businesses will do what turns a profit, not necessarily what their customers want. But if the Nexus phone, the purest Google experiences Android offers, gets apps blocked because Verizon has a rival service, how far will this go? Will there be a point where Verizon launches a video streaming service and blocks Netflix and Hulu? Will AT&T release a music subscription service, and shut out Spotify? This is a dangerous precedent.As is always the case with Android, hackers save the day. There is already a solution in place to install Google Wallet on a Galaxy Nexus with an unlocked bootloader. It requires installing a custom recovery, but isn’t that the least you can do to support the hackers: the only ones delivering a pure Android experience?via Computer World and Droid Lifelast_img read more

White House blasts Seattle judge’s ruling on asylum seekers

first_imgSEATTLE — The White House on Wednesday blasted a Seattle judge’s ruling that says the Trump administration can’t indefinitely lock up migrants who are seeking asylum without giving them a chance to be released on bond.U.S. District Judge Marsha Pechman on Tuesday blocked an administration policy, due to take effect July 15, saying asylum-seekers would no longer get bond hearings but must remain in custody as they pursue their claims. It’s unconstitutional for the government to detain people without demonstrating it’s necessary, she said.Though the decision was similar to one issued by a Washington, D.C., judge in 2015 against the Obama administration, White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham called it “at war with the rule of law.”President Donald Trump frequently criticizes judges who rule against him.“The decision only incentivizes smugglers and traffickers, which will lead to the further overwhelming of our immigration system by illegal aliens,” Grisham said in statement. “No single district judge has legitimate authority to impose his or her open borders views on the country.”Michael Tan, an American Civil Liberties Union attorney, said Grisham was wrong.“The Constitution is clear that you can’t lock somebody up without the basic due process of a hearing,” he said. “Yesterday’s decision upholds the law against this administration’s ongoing attempts to violate it.”last_img read more

Houston City Council Bans Public Encampments For the Homeless

first_imgThe Houston City Council has approved an ordinance that bans the use of tents and cooking devices that can be a fire hazard in public areas.Another ordinance on panhandling will prohibit people from blocking roadways or sidewalks.Police officers could make arrests after giving warnings, citations and consulting with social workers.Mayor Sylvester Turner says the goal isn’t to treat homeless people as criminals.“The whole notion is to strike a balance between addressing their needs and their concerns and putting them in a better position in their lives and, at the same time, the neighborhood concerns in terms of people being in their doorway or blocking the sidewalk,” Turner emphasized during the customary press conference held after the Council’s meeting.The City will try to educate the people who can be impacted by the new rules in the next few weeks.“We’ll have outreach teams working along with HPD’s Outreach Team who will be out there working to get individuals who are on the streets today off and into emergency housing,” explained Marc Eichenbaum, the Mayor’s special assistant for homeless initiatives.The rules will take effect on May 12th.The City is referring to the website for detailed information about shelters.

Cancun firemen hoping for three more stations before end of year

first_imgCancun, Q.R. — Before the end of the year, firemen are hoping three additional fire station houses will be opened in Cancun making nine throughout the city.CEO of the fire department, Thomas Hurtado Morris, explained that the city needs at least three more houses to quickly answer calls and effectively respond to emergencies.“We are looking at how to get more stations since the ideal situation would be to have three more opened before the end of the year. This would create a more prompt response time to the services that are requested by shortening the distance from six minutes to three,” he explained.Thomas Hurtado MorrisHe says that a few weeks ago, the Cancun fire department began a study to determine which areas needed the additional stations, saying that for example, two would be Prado Norte and the Isla Mujeres Continental Zone.He noted that the added stations do not require a large investment since only one water pipe, one pick-up truck and six firemen per shift are required in each of the stations. He also explained that they only need an area of about 80 square meters.There have been discussions with authorities from the Municipal Secretary of Public Safety and Traffic, he says, since they have abandoned police stations that are feasible for the fire stations.Hurtado Morris said that before the start of the holiday season, they are anticipating authorization to open the three fire stations in the various police booths or a site at the Benito Juárez Town Hall.He also noted that they could open a station in a fraction if a donation was made to the firemen, something that would be well received.During the upcoming season, Hurtado Morris says that more than 130 Cancun firemen will be on call to respond to emergencies.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Civil servants call for reintroduction of pension scheme

first_imgTeachers’ and civil servants’ trade unions said they would like to see the pension fund that was abolished during the economic crisis restored, arguing that newcomers don’t have this benefit.Following a meeting with teachers’ unions Oelmek, Poed, Oltek and civil servants’ union Pasydy, Finance Minister Harris Georgiades said he would pass on to cabinet their request to restore the Pension Fund in the public sector.Cabinet had decided due to the financial crisis to abolish the pension fund for new entrants to the civil service and its replacement with a provident fund.In his statements after the meeting, Pasydy head Glafkos Hadjipetrou said they raised the issue of restoring the pension plan, which had been in force for decades.He said they do not agree with the cabinet decision.“The assurance we have received from the minister is that he will put the issue back to the cabinet for consideration and decision,” he said.Asked if the trade unions were satisfied with the minister’s assurances, Hadjipetrou said he would be pleased if the pension plan was restored, noting that during the pre-accession negotiations, Cyprus had even been commended by the EU for its professional pension plans, which were subsequently abolished because of the crisis.At the moment, those who entered the public service after 2011 have neither a pension scheme nor a provident fund, he said.“Our request is for the issue to be duly studied and it is an issue that cannot be examined only based on economic criteria,” he said.He added that civil servants spend many years of their lives working for the public, “and we feel they are entitled to a decent pension after all those years of service.”You May LikeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityWe protect our home with earthquake insuranceCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoAuthorities release five of 12 Israeli rape suspects, seven due in court FridayUndoVarosha move merely a ‘PR stunt’ by Ozersay, expert saysUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
