This campaign will complement the efforts of the province’s Team West, a joint economic development initiative announced to pool the resources of government and interested parties in Yarmouth and southwest Nova Scotia.last_img read more

Iran jails 2 for spying for Israel including UK dual national

first_imgTehran: Iran has jailed two people including a British dual national for 10 years for spying for Israel and another two years for receiving illegal payments, the judiciary said Tuesday. Anousheh Ashouri, a woman with British and Iranian citizenship, got 10 years in prison for feeding information to Israel’s Mossad spy agency, judiciary spokesman Gholamhossein Esmaili said. She was also handed a two-year prison sentence for receiving 33,000 euros ( 36,600) in illicit funds from Israel and ordered to pay the same amount in fines.

Ashouri is the latest Iranian national with a Western passport to be detained in Iran. Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, a British-Iranian project manager with Thomson Reuters Foundation, has been held in Tehran since 2016 on sedition charges, a case that has caused major tensions with the United Kingdom. Other Iranian dual nationals jailed in Iran include Iranian-American Siamak Namazi and his father Baquer, who are serving 10-year sentences for espionage in a case that has outraged Washington.last_img read more

Judge in Gerald Stanley murder trial addresses witness inconsistencies with jury

first_imgThe Canadian PressBATTLEFORD, Sask. – Saskatchewan’s chief justice addressed some inconsistencies Friday in the testimony from key Crown witnesses at the trial of a farmer accused of murdering an Indigenous man.Justice Martel Popescul’s mid-trial instructions to the jury came after a day in which some witnesses to the killing admitted on the stand that they made last-minute changes to their stories and lied to investigators.“Common sense tells you that if a witness says one thing in the witness box, but has said something quite different on an earlier occasion, this may reduce the value of his or her evidence,” Popescul told jurors.Gerald Stanley, 56, is accused of second-degree murder in the death of 22-year-old Colten Boushie near Biggar, Sask., on Aug. 9, 2016.Boushie was sitting in the passenger seat of a grey Ford Escape SUV when he was shot to death on Stanley’s farm. Boushie’s friends have testified that they were looking for help with a flat tire when they went to the farm.Stanley’s son has testified that his father told him he was only trying to scare the young people away and the gun just went off.Popescul was addressing the testimony of Eric Meechance, Cassidy Cross and Belinda Jackson, who were in the SUV with Boushie.Cross admitted Thursday that he had lied to police in his initial statement about carrying a gun, how much alcohol he had consumed and about breaking into a truck on the day his friend was killed.Jackson initially told police she saw a woman shoot Boushie.“I wouldn’t say I lied to them. I didn’t tell them the whole truth,” Jackson said Thursday. “Everything started coming back to me later when I was on my own.”Popescul said jurors should consider any explanation the witnesses gave for the differences.“Consider whether the differences are significant,” he said. “You should also consider the fact, nature and extent of any differences when you decide whether to rely on their testimony.”An autopsy report filed as evidence said Boushie had a blood alcohol level more than three times the legal limit when he was fatally shot. Blood alcohol was listed between 263 and 266 milligrams. In Canada, legal intoxication is 80 milligrams.Forensic pathologist Dr. Shaun Ladham detailed in his report that Boushie was a reasonably healthy young man. He said there were no other significant signs of trauma other than a bullet wound that entered just below the left ear and exited through his right neck.Ladham noted the bullet had a downward trajectory.last_img read more

About 150 Ikea jobs in Canada to be impacted by response to

TORONTO — Swedish home furnishings giant Ikea says about 150 jobs in Canada could be impacted over two years as it adjusts to changing customer behaviour.The retailer expects to cut 7,500 jobs worldwide as it addresses urbanization, new technology and digitalization that are changing the way customers live and shop.Ikea says the cutbacks will allow it to focus “on its e-commerce platform, to better meet the needs of its customers and be more convenient and affordable to many more people.”“In addition, to ensure we are fit for long-term growth, we’re looking closely at all areas of the business, including how we are structured as a company,” the company said in a news release.While new roles will be created across the Canadian network, it says some jobs will be “relocated, changed or removed.”Of the 150 employees to be impacted, up to 50 at its Canadian national service office may be redundant, it said.The retailer says it will explore new store formats, enhance the in-store experience, invest in its digital experience, improve its service and optimize its distribution networks.That includes opening stores in city centres to complement its larger locations. The company is opening stores in 30 major city centres around the world to diversify its reach, but Canadian plans aren’t yet available, said spokeswoman Kristin Newbigging.“We don’t have any specific expansion plans to announce for Ikea Canada today. However, I can share it is still our goal to grow and expand Ikea in Canada,” she wrote in an email.Ikea Canada employs 6,500 people across the country, including 6,300 at stores.— With files from The Associated Press read more

Sandvik RockPulse offers first realtime tool stress monitoring in top hammer drilling

first_imgRockPulse™, a new technology and product introduced by Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology, is the first practical solution for real-time tool stress monitoring in top-hammer drilling. The add-on system integrates directly with the rock drill and its control system, and can be used for drilling process optimisation in varying rock conditions. This also helps to reduce the stress fatigue of drilling tools. RockPulse™ offers significant potential to improve overall drilling performance, by as much as 5%.Profitable rock drilling requires balancing between drilling power and cost-efficiency. While use of high drilling power is required for good performance, excessive power becomes counterproductive due to high stress levels and wear of drilling tools. Optimisation of tool stress and consequently tool lifetime are essential for cost-efficient drilling operations. Conventional drilling control technologies have done this based on indirect performance indicators only, such as percussion or feed pressures.RockPulse™ analyses each piston blow in real time to extract data on the tool stress. This enables operators to optimise drilling power and to minimise inefficient use of percussion energy. Stress waves created by piston strikes are measured continuously using sensor technology developed and patented by Sandvik. The system consists of a Sandvik shank adapter and rugged contactless sensor inside the rock drill. Stress wave signals captured by the sensor are analysed within the Sandvik SICA control system of drill rig. The system is available for new Ranger DXi drill rigs and RD920 series rockdrills.“Our tests from real-life conditions show 5% increase in average penetration rate, even though the percussion power was decreased by 4%. Drill operators have additionally commented that RockPulse™ helps them to optimise bit regrinding intervals and thus boost efficiency and productivity,” says Jarno Viitaniemi, Product Manager, Surface Drilling, Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology.The RockPulse™ user interface visualises and alerts on three key parameters: drill bit response, tool load and feed level. Drill bit response helps to minimise the strain on the tools by indicating how much of the impact energy is used for breaking rock and how much is reflected back to the tool string. Tool load indicator shows the tensile stresses affecting on the tool string, which helps to avoid underfeed in weak rock and excessive wear of drilling tools. Feed level indication shows whether drilling is being done within the specified feed range – a key parameter for excellent hole quality and long tool life.“I realise this is a bold statement, but we believe RockPulse™ is a truly groundbreaking solution that marks the beginning of a new era in top-hammer drilling,” concludes Viitaniemi.last_img read more

Pavlidis vote in Parliament five short of indictment

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Greek politician, Aristotelis Pavlidis, avoided indictment on bribery charges when a vote in Parliament came up short. Parliament voted 146-144 in favor of indicting Pavlidis on charges in the alleged bribery of a ferryboat line operator, five votes shy of the 151 absolute majority required for the former minister to face a special court over the bribery scandal.Ruling New Democracy deputies followed the party line and supported their fellow MP but a number of blank votes showed cracks in the government’s solidarity.Five blank ballots and three “present” votes were cast. Two of the Parliament’s 300 members didn’t take part in the secret ballot.The results of the vote means that the government will not be forced into calling early elections and Greeks will vote only in the European Parliamentary poll on June 7.“The Hellenic Parliament has voted. The MPs did their duty in voting by conscience, in accordance with the Constitution and the Rules of Parliament,” government spokesman Evangelos Antonaros said, shortly after the 300-member House voted against the indictment of former minister.The PanHellenic Socialist Movement (PASOK) insisted that the result was a defeat for the government and Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis, drawing attention to the fact that Pavlidis did not have the confidence of the majority of the House.In a sharp attack on Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis and his government, opposition PASOK leader George Papandreou termed the vote in Parliament a “major defeat” for the ruling party. Addressing PASOK’s Political Council, Papandreou said that the Prime Minister was personally responsible for the outcome.“The prime minister and his government, through their stance, are completely hostage to the interests that they serve,” he stressed. Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA) leader Alekos Alavanos told his party’s MPs that the evidence uncovered in the Pavlidis case did not allow the file to be closed and that the prosecution against him must go ahead.SYRIZA’s leader described the prevailing political climate as corrupt, adding that judges are engaging in politics while politicians are acting as judges.last_img read more

Raising womens workforce can raise GDP by Rs 46 lakh crore in

first_imgIncreasing the women’s participation in the country’s workforce could add Rs 46 lakh crore ($700 billion) to India’s gross domestic product (GDP) in 2025, according to a study.Bridging the gender gap will boost the economic activity in the country, resulting in incremental GDP growth of 1.4% per year, said a study by McKinsey Global Institute (MGI).”About 70 percent of the increase would come from raising India’s female labour-force participation rate from 31 percent at present to 41 percent in 2025. This would bring 68 million more women into the economy over this period,” said the report.Currently, the contribution of women to India’s GDP stands at 17%, which is much lower than the global average of 31%.”The Indian economy will obviously gain if we bridge the gender gap in the workplace, but this gap cannot be plugged if we don’t consider gender equality in society and change our social attitudes and unconscious bias towards women,” Moneycontrol.com quoted Rajat Gupta, Director, McKinsey & Company India, as saying.According to report titled ‘The Power of Parity: Advancing Women’s Equality in India’, the time spent by Indian women on unpaid work is nearly 10 times higher than the time spent by men on such work.”If this unpaid work could be valued and compensated, it would contribute USD 0.3 trillion (Rs 20 lakh crore) to India’s economic output,” the report noted.Besides, India’s GDP will see a contribution of $2.9 trillion from women in 2025, if they “play an identical role in labour markets as men” the report added.last_img read more

Key questions Why did Blatter resign and what now for FIFA

first_imgAmerican investigators have amade clear through last week’s indictment that they view FIFA as rife with organizational corruption, and that means “people both up, down and sideways” from those indicted, Wilson said.Another question is what Blatter knew about $10 million in payments, which the U.S. says was a bribe for CONCACAF officials to vote for South Africa as 2010 World Cup host. Blatter said he knew nothing about the payments.More damaging details are expected Wednesday. A U.S. judge has approved the release of the transcript from the hearing in 2013 when Chuck Blazer pled guilty plea to corruption charges. Blazer is a former general secretary of CONCACAF and a former member of FIFA’s executive committee.___Q: Was Blatter warned that FIFA finances were at risk?A: FIFA has been coming under pressure from sponsors to overhaul the governing body, with Visa last week becoming the first to threaten to cut its ties unless there is evidence of reform. Questions were also raised in the House of Commons in London on Monday about whether the publicly-funded BBC should be paying FIFA for World Cup broadcast rights when FIFA finances are under question.___Q: Will Blatter’s resignation impact the next World Cups hosts? ___Q: How much in put will Blatter have in reform proposals?A: How lame a duck he will be will be determined by the executive committee, which likely will set up mechanisms to make proposals and will approve items put on the agenda for the extraordinary congress.___Rob Harris can be followed at www.twitter.com/RobHarrisCopyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Here are some key questions about what happened since last week’s U.S. indictments of FIFA officials and what will happen next.___Q: Why did Blatter change his mind and resign, just four days after he was elected to a fifth term in a 133-73 vote over Prince Ali bin al-Hussein of Jordan?A: Blatter’s explanation was the did not “have a mandate from the entire world of football — the fans, the players, the clubs, the people who live, breathe and love football.”Blatter defiantly brushed aside any criticism when he was re-elected Friday, amid the gravest crisis in FIFA’s history. After the arrest of former, current and future members of his executive committee, Blatter criticized U.S. authorities and the British media for pursing an anti-FIFA agenda.The opening days of Blatter’s fifth term saw no respite in the corruption crisis.___Q: What does Blatter expect to come out of the criminal investigations?A: U.S. authorities say additional charges against soccer officials can be expected.The New York Times and ABC News reported Blatter himself was under investigation by the FBI.The Justice Department’s public assertions the investigation is ongoing “telegraphs that there are other people in their focus,” said Ed Wilson, a Washington lawyer whose practice focuses on cross-border money transactions. Sponsored Stories Top Stories Four benefits of having a wireless security system LONDON (AP) — Sepp Blatter and his mentor Joao Havelange have run global’s soccer’s governing body since 1974, handing out power to national federations and regional chiefs who awarded the men with loyalty.All that could change in the next few months, as a scandal-plagued Blatter calls for a new election that will influence everything from how the organization is run to how it deals with sponsors, broadcasters, federations, leagues, clubs, players and agents.

Don Shooter shows health improvement Arizona families, Arizona farms: working to produce high-quality milk A: A Swiss investigation is looking into the bidding process that saw Russia awarded the 2018 World Cup and Qatar voted the 2022 host in a contentious dual decision in 2010.The Qatari bid has attracted the most criticism, with accusations the wealthy tiny Gulf nation bribed its way to victory. Qatar has repeatedly denied those allegations, and a strong legal case is likely to be required before any host was stripped of soccer’s $5 billion event.___Q: When will Blatter’s successor be announced?A: Domenico Scala, chairman of FIFA’s audit and compliance committee, announced the presidential election is likely to “take place anytime from December of this year to March of next year” at an extraordinary FIFA congress.___Q: Who are the candidates likely to be?A: The favorite will be 59-year-old Michel Platini, the former French national team captain and the president of European soccer’s governing body since 2007. Platini decided not to take on former ally Blatter in last week’s election. Prince Ali hinted Tuesday he may have another shot at the presidency.___Q: What will FIFA look like without Blatter?A: It will probably be more open about the running of the sport. Scala said he will seek to make public the compensation of the president and executive committee members. Blatter called for term limits.

Desperate mother to hand over 29yearold son to the state Updated

first_imgThe mother of a 29-year-old autistic man threatened on Thursday to hand over her son to the state after the social welfare services slashed state aid to him.In an open letter to President Nicos Anastasiades and Labour Minister Zeta Emilianidou, the Cyprus Autism Association said they would escort the mother to the offices of the social welfare services in Nicosia on Friday morning where she is to handover her son to the care of the state.The mother’s action – a single parent who also has a daughter – follows the decision of the social welfare services in 2015 to slash the rent allowance for her son’s house to around one third, leaving her struggling to cover expenses.Following repeated pleas to the president, the labour minister and the competent ministry’s permanent secretary, the woman decided she had no other option but to give custody of her son to the state.In 2007 her son moved into another house, after exhibiting violent behaviour and was deemed dangerous to his family. The cabinet had at the time approved a monthly €600 rent allowance and monetary aid for two carers to live with her son. The 29-year-old is not in a position to take care of himself and he needs care round the clock.In June 2015 however the social welfare services slashed that rent money to around one third.“I was told that these were the rules, I was given no other explanation,” the 29-year-old’s mother told the Cyprus Mail.She said that her son receives around €2,000 which goes to rent, and the salaries of the two carers, but that his household monthly expenses are around €3,000 in total, the remainder of which she said, she now has to cover herself. She added she had all the paperwork to back her claims.Despite efforts to find another three-bedroom house, as each carer must by law have their own bedroom, for the reduced amount this has not been possible, the mother said, thus she was left to struggle to cover the remaining rent, utilities, and food for her son and his carers, on top of managing her own household and help her daughter go to college.She also must pay for petrol and maintenance of a car as her son needs to be driven around for at least two hours per day otherwise he gets very violent.Being unable to cope, she missed social insurance payments for the two carers and found herself in trouble for that.“How can a single parent support two households? Each month I have to decide which payment to leave behind, my son’s day care centre fees? the carers’ social insurance fund payment? or other expenses, to be able to somehow manage,” she said.But now, she said she has had enough.“If the state feels they can take care of my son with less money, they can try. My son has been living happily in that house for 11 years,” the woman said.She requests that the state at least restore the rent allowance.Both the mother and the autism association feel the mess is due to the lack of empathy shown by social welfare services officials.The association said they have already informed welfare to be ready to receive the 29-year-old on Friday “and find him an appropriate place to ensure a good quality of life just as his mother has been doing all these years”.The group said that state services must also ensure that the 29-year-old’s life or the life of another person will not be at risk as any change in his routine can cause an outburst that makes him dangerous both for himself and for others.The case of the 29-year-old is just the tip of the iceberg, the association said, as people with autism and their families suffer from the “inhumane practices of the social welfare services and of the Guaranteed Minimum Income”.An official of the labour ministry told Sigmalive that, the 29-year-old, in addition to the €2,130 he receives per month in allowances, he also receives a rent allowance as a GMI beneficiary.The social welfare services department told Cyprus Mail that the unsigned announcement of the autism association is “completely untrue”.It added that the mother of the 29-year-old, expressed twice on Wednesday threats against the life of the director of the social welfare services department.  You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoYahoo SearchThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
