Minister Continues Recruitment Retention Tour in Berwick Kentville

first_img Ingonish, Saturday, Oct. 18, 12 p.m. Halifax, Monday, Oct. 21, 7:30 a.m. Guysborough, Monday, Oct. 21, 7 p.m Pictou, Tuesday, Oct. 22, 8 a.m Nova Scotia employers, especially in rural areas, will face big challenges filling close to 45,000 jobs that will become available over the next five years. That is the message Labour and Workforce Development Minister Mark Parent is taking to Berwick and Kentville today, Oct. 17, as part of a provincewide tour focused on workforce issues. “Government is working on a series of strategies to address the need for skilled workers in the years ahead, but success will ultimately depend on joint action with employers, business leaders and educational institutions,” said Mr. Parent. The Department of Labour and Workforce Development has recently introduced several strategies aimed at helping rural employers recruit and retain skilled workers. Strategies include linking unemployed older workers to workforce opportunities, educating youth about opportunities in smaller communities, providing financial assistance for apprentices, and establishing an Employer of Choice program that will encourage retention. Another strategy is the LINK Continuing Care Assistant (CCA) program. The tuition-free program will be offered to 60 Nova Scotia adults living in Truro, Cape Breton and the Annapolis Valley. Successful participants will graduate with a high school diploma, a CCA certificate, and a guaranteed job. There will be 20 graduates from each of the regions. With the support of regional development authorities, Mr. Parent will also speak to business and community leaders in other communities in October. Tour dates are: Each stop on the tour will have a different workforce theme pertaining to the challenges faced in that area.last_img read more

Amnesty says no evidence for France to jail Ottawa professor urges PM

first_imgOTTAWA – Hassan Diab, an Ottawa professor behind bars in France despite numerous court rulings questioning the evidence against him, is being held solely for political purposes, his lawyer said Wednesday.Donald Bayne said France is keeping Diab behind bars so it won’t be seen as soft on terrorism after a spate of recent attacks. And he said the Trudeau government is acting like a “passive little brother” to France by actively not raising his case.“He has become, in effect, a political prisoner of the terror trauma in France,” Bayne told a news conference on Parliament Hill.The veteran lawyer outlined what he called new evidence uncovered this week by investigating judges in France that shows Diab was in Lebanon, studying for and writing university exams, at the time of a fatal 1980 synagogue attack in Paris.Bayne said the French investigation has found six independent witnesses who were part of a group studying with Diab in 1980. Documents from the Lebanese University confirm that Diab sat for and passed exams at the time of the attack.The investigation also confirmed Diab’s account that his passport was stolen and used by somebody else at that time, Bayne added.Diab denies any involvement in the attack that left four dead and dozens injured.Amnesty International, the Canadian Association of University Teachers and Diab’s family question his continued imprisonment, given that French investigating judges have ruled six times he should be released on bail. All of the release orders have been overturned on appeal.The most recent release order, in late April, noted evidence that Diab was in Beirut when the bombing occurred. A French appeal court reversed that order on May 2, which kept Diab behind bars.Bayne accused the federal Liberal government of ignoring the evidence that he says clears Diab because its judgment is being clouded by its otherwise warm international relations with France.“I think there’s been a deference to France. We’re getting the feeling on behalf of the family that it’s Canada playing the passive little brother to France,” said Bayne.“But this is the time for the Canadian government to stand up for one of its citizens.”Alex Neve, the secretary general for Amnesty International Canada, noted “the sense of camaraderie” between Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron that was on full display last month at the G7 and NATO summits.He said that provides an opportunity for Trudeau to raise Diab’s case as well as ensuring his ministers are looking into it.Neither the Prime Minister’s Office nor the Global Affairs Department replied promptly to a request for comment.Amnesty has sent letters to Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland and Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould, as well as Freeland’s parliamentary secretary for consular affairs, Omar Alghabra.In a June meeting, Diab’s wife Rania Tfaily said Alghabra told her the government was monitoring the case, but she called on it to do more.Her husband lost the chance to witness his son’s birth, and to have memories of his children’s milestones in their early years of development.“Why is there this total indifference to the suffering of an innocent man and the plight of his family?”Bayne questioned the government’s inactivity on Diab’s case given it recently intervened in the case of two British Columbia winery owners “who are wealthy Canadians,” and have been jailed in China on an alleged customs violation.A Global Affairs spokeswoman told The Canadian Press earlier this month that “we have raised our concerns at a high level with Chinese authorities” about that case.The department issued that statement when the daughter of John Chang and Lan-Fed (Allison) Lu visited Ottawa to raise support for the plight of her parents.Diab was removed from Canada in November 2014 after the Supreme Court declined to hear his appeal of an Ottawa’s judge’s order that he be extradited.Ontario Superior Court Justice Robert Maranger said the evidence against Diab was “weak, convoluted and confusing,” but that is was sufficient to meet the lower legal test of whether he should be extradited.last_img read more

Painted Pony warns natural gas output will fall due to BC pipeline

first_imgPainted Pony has halted production of about 60 million cubic feet of natural gas because of the pipeline constraints and resulting lower prices.It forecasts fourth-quarter production of between 303 million and 312 million cubic feet equivalent per day, down from third quarter output of 350 million cfe/d.The Calgary-based company says gas prices at the Station 2 trading hub above T-South in northeastern B.C. have plunged because of the inability to get all of the gas to market, but the hit to its bottom line is balanced by higher prices at the Sumas/Huntingdon hub on the border of B.C. and Washington state.(THE CANADIAN PRESS) CALGARY, A.B. – Oil and gas producer Painted Pony Energy Ltd. says its fourth-quarter production will drop by up to 20 percent because of reduced shipping capacity after the explosion of a natural gas pipeline in B.C.A line in Enbridge Inc.’s T-South pipeline system ruptured on Oct. 9, about 15 kilometres northeast of Prince George, B.C., causing a huge fireball.Repairs were completed at the end of October and service is gradually being restored, but both the affected line and a smaller parallel line are to operate at a maximum of 80 percent of normal pressure until safety of the system is assured.last_img read more

ADDIS Islamic finance should be utilized to fund sustainable development UN conference

Islamic finance offers a promising alternative to traditional sources of funding and should be utilized to realize the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that countries will adopt in September, participants at the Third International Conference on Financing for Development were told.“In mobilizing resources for the SDGs, non-traditional sources of financing need to be given due attention,” Savas Alpay, Chief Economist of the Islamic Development Bank, said in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, which is hosting the four-day Conference. “In this context, Islamic finance is offering a very promising alternative.”The Bank announced this week that it will be doubling its development assistance activities from around $80 billion recorded during the MDGs period to more than $150 billion in the next 15 years to support programmes and projects for the successful realization of the SDGs in its 56 member countries. “Islamic finance has gained traction around the world in recent years,” Mr. Alpay said, noting that it has a footprint in Asia and the Middle East, is ripe for growth in South America and Europe and has future markets in North America, Central Asia and Australia. He cited certain prerequisites that have to be met for the successful implementation of the SDGs in a timely manner, namely financial stability, financial inclusion and shared prosperity. “Islamic finance offers promising potential solutions in these domains.” Islamic finance is a financial system that operates according to Islamic law, or sharia. Like conventional financial systems, Islamic finance features banks, capital markets, fund managers, investment firms, and insurance companies. The difference being that these entities are governed both by Islamic law and the finance industry rules and regulations that apply to other banks. Headquartered in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, the Bank aims to foster the economic development and social progress of Muslim countries, as well as Muslim communities in non-member countries.For over four decades, the Islamic Development Bank Group has funded short- and long-term development projects in various sectors of the economies of its member countries. “The Islamic financial services industry has now supported many projects in the social, economic and environmental domains and it has great potential of being instrument in funding many components of the SDGs as well,” Mr. Alpay emphasized.In implementing the SDGs, it is necessary to take bold and decisive actions, act firmly, fulfill existing commitments and pledge new ones, he stated. “Each and every country has primary responsibility for its own economic and social development. However, the depth of the current involvement with the SDGs requires that the international community act as one.” read more

Turkish foreign ministry warns against the extension of Greek waters

first_imgA spokesman for the Turkish foreign ministry responded to former Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias’ statement that Greece was legally entitled to relocate their border in the Aegean to the west by 12 nautical miles.Mr Hami Aksoy was recorded on Reuters saying that Greece has no such right without the agreement of Turkey and a warning was given to the Greek ambassador to Ankara, Panos Mavroidis: “We cannot tolerate any step that is not based on mutual consent in the Aegean sea where two countries have opposite coasts,” Mr Aksoy said. “The declaration of the Turkish Grand National Assembly, dated 8 June 1995, contains a necessary political warning and is still in force today.”In response to these statements, Greek foreign ministry spokesman Alexandros Gennimatas spoke in a direct tone regarding Greece’s legal rights in the Aegean: “The extension of the territorial waters is a legitimate and inalienable sovereign right of Greece, in accordance with international law. The decision to extend it relies solely on Greece, which has the right to extend its territorial waters whenever and in any way it sees fit. This right is unconditional and is not called into question or negotiated with third parties. This is certainly the case for the entire country,” said Mr Gennimatas.However, Turkey’s foreign minister himself Melvut Cavusoglu tried to downplay the entire issue when talking to news agency Anadolu, as he pointed towards Greece to be the cause of the problem: “Greece often makes such announcements to cause tension or in a populist framework,” he said, adding that Turkey would like to resolve matters peacefully.

The meaning of names Part 4 The aftermath of generational trauma

first_imgThe decline of many of Alaska’s indigenous languages happened during the era of boarding schools and missionaries. As children, some Alaska Natives were punished for speaking their mother tongue. When those children became adults, many did not speak their language to their children to spare them from the pain they experienced.Shyanne Chulyin Ch’ivaya Beatty.Acknowledging this generational trauma is what led Shyanne Chulyin Ch’ivaya Beatty to study Han Hwech’in, the language of her ancestors. In this fourth installment of a five-part series, Beatty talks about reclaiming identity through the use of Native names.Shyanne Chulyin Ch’ivaya BeattyDownload AudioMy first name that came to me was a Dena’ina Athabascan name, not a Han Hwech’in name. I was at the time working with a Dena’ina Athabascan in Anchorage, Alaska, and he gave me this name. He said, “You’re Chulyin Ch’ivaya.” And I said, “What does that mean?” “It means Raven Whirlwind, because you’re mischievous like a Raven and you come in and out of a room like a whirlwind.”People are using their Native names or language within their own social identity. The generation of trauma was my grandparents’ and they see their children now being really proud of their identity.I feel that just within the last 5-10 years we’re learning more about how are names are really. What I mean by that is I always thought we were Han Gwich’in. I’ve started learning more about my language (and) we’re actually Han Hwech’in, which is like H-W-E-C-H-I-N instead of Gwich’in.I think that more and more people are realizing that just like Aleut people are not just Aleut people. They’re Alutiiq, they’re Sugpiaq, they’re Unangan, they’re Unangax, and we are really taking hold of owning our own identity, being educated by our identity and making sure that we educate others about that and that’s why I think we have this surge of people who are not only showcasing their Native language but their own identity.This is part three of a five-part series:Part One: Indigenizing governmentPart Two: A family historyPart Three: A time for changePart Five: The world of social medialast_img read more

Marine debris wont stop but neither will those cleaning it up

first_imgMarine debris neatly organized before it’s rebagged and weighed. (Photo by Aaron Bolton / KBBI News)Millions of pounds of plastic debris washes up on the Gulf of Alaska’s remote shores each year. It washes up faster than it can be collected and clean-up efforts cost millions. That can seem overwhelming for volunteers who are out there year after year, cleaning the same beaches. But, one man doesn’t let that discourage him in the slightest.Listen nowChris Pallister is president of Gulf of Alaska Keeper, an environmental non-profit that focuses on marine debris. It’s been raining all day and his crew of family and friends climb over wet logs, collecting every shred of plastic wedged in the maze of dead trees. Pallister and his wife Patty Zwollo are weighing the trash, then sorting the plastic into more than 150 different categories.“We’ll have five-gallon jugs, fuel canisters, nets, lines and various categories of that. We have all the beverage bottles which we break into three categories,” Pallister explained.Even the plastic wads from shotgun shells are individually counted.“What we’re trying to do is figure out the sources of it. You know at some point, somebody has to pay to clean this stuff up,” Pallister said as he pored over fishing buoys piled on a red tarp. “So you have to have some kind of assessment, who you pin it on, which industry, which countries.”Zwollo keeps track of the numbers. The data shows the source of the trash and also how fast some of these items are crossing the Pacific Ocean, particularly pieces from the 2011 tsunami in Japan.Light material like styrofoam peaked in 2012 and has now tapered off to pre-tsunami levels. But, heavier plastics, such as Japanese aquaculture baskets, are still showing up. Pieces of the vibrant containers litter the beach, several of them stuck beneath heavy logs.This is day two of a six-day trip to clean up Gore Point near the eastern tip of the Kenai Peninsula. It’s relatively short compared to Pallister’s typical 30-day trips. Pallister and his family have been involved in cleaning up beaches since 2002, and he formed Gulf of Alaska Keeper in 2005.Yesterday, they cleaned up 1,500 pounds. Today, Pallister is expecting much more.“This is really bad. I think by the time we get done with this little section of beach, we’ll probably pick up maybe 3 tons of debris on a third of a mile,” Pallister noted as he looked down the beach.Plastic washes up faster than it can be picked up. There are places in Prince William Sound, where Pallister also works, that have 20 to 30 tons of plastic per square mile. The remote locations and mountains of plastic make Pallister’s work incredibly expensive.One summer of beach combing can cost about $1 million. What’s collected is stored in large nylon bags placed above the tide line. Pallister hires helicopters and barges to remove nearly a million pounds of plastic every few years. Those projects can run about $25,000 per day.Tracking down funding for that work can be a full-time job of its own. Pallister does all his own grant writing and maintains two boats in order to keep the non-profit going. All this can sound pretty defeating.“All this stuff, who knows. It’ll keep you awake at night if you think about it too much,” Pallister sighed.Pallister has made several trips to Washington D.C. to testify before Congress, and he said he’s been working with Alaska’s congressional delegation.There are two bills related to marine debris working their way through Washington D.C. Pallister said things could move quite a bit faster, but he’s pleased decision makers are shifting their attention to the issue. But, until legislative action actually happens, Pallister will continue working to clean up the problem piece by piece.last_img read more

This past Thanksgiving I received a call from a paramedic explaining that my mom had fractured her leg and I should stop working on the turkey and fixings and rush to the emergency department (ED) at Edward Hospital in Naperville, Ill. She had been walking her dog on wet grass and leaves in a park when her dog took off after another dog and pulled her down. She was whipped around and the change in weight caused her to dislocate her ankle (the bottom of her shoe was facing her when she looked at her feet) and caused a spiral fracture to her fibula.When I got there my mom was already heavily sedated due to the pain and because the ED staff had already put her ankle back in place. The ED doctor ordered a digital radiograph (DR) of her leg to see the extent of damage. They wheeled in a new Carestream DRX mobile X-ray system and I had a live demonstration of how fast these types of systems can snap the pictures. It called up the images immediately on the machine’s screen. The image of the Pott’s fracture with fragments (figure 1) was really interesting as someone who covers radiology, but I also realized from a non-clinical standpoint she was really messed up and in pain. Additionally, she would need reconstructive surgery to put her Humpty Dumpty leg back together again. She was way up the creek without a paddle with it being Thanksgiving and there were no orthopedic surgeons in staff due to the holiday. The day after Thanksgiving was not much better, as we found, since most physicians were out through the following Monday. So the ER splinted the leg, wrapped it in ace bandages and sent her home with heavy pain killers.Compounding her mobility issues was the fact that she has bilateral knee replacements. (Figure 2)  Due to the trauma, broken bone and knowing she had these implants that further limited her ability to move around, she was prescribed a prophylactic anticoagulant.Knowing we would need the images for a surgeon to review, I had the ED burn a CD. However, I was happy to find Edward is among the growing number of hospitals to grant patients access to their health records via a DR Systems Internet image/results distribution system. This technology pulls images and reports from the hospitals’ Epic EMR (electronic medical record) system and makes them available for remote viewing by clinicians outside of the hospital’s picture archiving and communication system (PACS). She also was given login instructions at discharge for a patient portal so she could access her records and images herself on a home computer or smartphone.We managed to find one orthopedic surgeon in their office on the Friday after Thanksgiving. They thought it was great that we had a CD, but before attempting to open it, they asked which hospital she had been at. Edward was already in a health information exchange, so outlying offices such as this one from a different medical group could access her records remotely in less than a minute. (Figure 3) They were able to call up her images and see what meds she was prescribed, which made the office visit go much faster.She had surgery on Dec. 1, the Tuesday of RSNA 2015. The orthopedic surgeon practiced at Elmhurst Hospital in Elmhurst, Ill., across the county from Naperville.

US security aid tops 6 million

first_imgIn 2011, the United States government donated almost $6.6 million in cash, equipment and training to Costa Rican public security forces, according to data released by the Public Security Ministry.A Coast Guard base, two new patrol boats, bulletproof vests, radios, boat and helicopter parts, trucks, generators, office supplies, language learning materials and cash are some of the donations made by the U.S. government last year to help Costa Rica meet security challenges.The single largest donation was the newly built $3.5 million Coast Guard station in Caldera, Puntarenas, on the central Pacific coast, inaugurated in March of last year. “The U.S. government has a strategic plan to partner with Costa Rica to strengthen the capacity of its Coast Guard,” U.S. Ambassador Anne S. Andrew told The Tico Times at the time (TT, March 31, 2011).That strategic plan is evident in the breakdown of U.S. donations among different Public Security Ministry agencies: Of 31 donations received by the ministry from the U.S., the Costa Rican Coast Guard received approximately $5.5 million, or about 84 percent of the total. That figure includes the new base and two interceptor boats with a $1.8 million price tag. Uncle Sam also shelled out $48,000 “to support marine operations,” according to the ministry report. Additionally, the Coast Guard also received $60,000 for generators for patrol boats, $19,000 for parts for patrol boats and $11,000 for trucks and $120,000 in training for Coast Guard personnel, including eight weeks of diesel maintenance training for three individuals to the tune of about $50,000.The National Air Vigilance Service also did well, receiving $371,000. The National Police received $78,400 for training, including $40,000 for 25 Costa Rican and Nicaraguan police who learned how to detect hidden compartments in vehicles. The U.S. also financed the attendance of three National Police representatives at the International Drug Enforcement Conference in Cancún, Mexico, to the tune of $12,000.Other donations listed by the Public Security Ministry include just under $10,000 for “jungle commando” training for two agents, $15,000 for a three-week course on national defense strategies for one person and $15,000 for “reinforcement and development of new capabilities for the approach and control of disturbances,” among other programs. The Judicial Investigation Police and Presidency Ministry received a donation of bulletproof vests valued at $289,208 Facebook Comments No related posts.last_img read more

Krishnan and Sathyaraj in lead roles For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsThe decision to lower rates though expected by the market by an even larger magnitude is a bit surprising considering that the factors that had held the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) back in June are probably still nebulous today If one looks at the possible impact of goods and service tax (GST) or even the house rent allowance ( HRA) component in the consumer price index (CPI) on overall inflation it is still unclear Also these numbers are not out as yet and will manifest only with a lag well after July This move is good for industry which has been looking for such rate cuts But will it help Here the answer is a shoulder shrug because with excess capacity and low demand conditions industry is unlikely to invest more in machinery Hence lower rates transmitted through the marginal cost of funds based lending rate (MCLR) would improve profitability though not necessarily bring about growth There would however be expectations that the RBI will oblige again in October as food prices should be moderated with a good kharif harvest and come down further Hence the market will expect another cut in October for sure But what about households This is not good news because of two reasons First lower returns on deposits has already been triggered by State Bank of India (SBI) on savings deposits and this is a big blow considering that so far banks have been lowering term deposit rates but kept the savings rate unchanged This will definitely lead to an overall reduction in rates which will impact the fixed income families which are increasing in numbers In fact other public sector banks (PSBs) may be expected to lower their savings bank rates soon Second the inflation data interpretation will not find favour with the household which have seen prices of food especially vegetables increasing sharply As policy makers look
