Time Springs Forward Sunday March 9

first_imgNova Scotians will be able to enjoy more sunlight in the evenings when daylight savings time begins on Sunday, March 9. People are reminded to set their clocks and watches ahead one hour at 2 a.m., or Saturday evening before they go to bed. Watches and clocks are not the only items that need adjustment – ovens, microwaves, car clocks, electronic devices, and automatic timer lights need to be turned ahead. It is also a good time to clean dryer vents to prevent fires, and change batteries in smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. Smoke detectors should be tested monthly and replaced every 10 years.last_img read more

BC firefighters repeatedly impeded by recreational boaters on Okanagan Lake

first_imgKELOWNA, B.C. – Though nearby wildfires are still wreaking havoc on the area, boaters on British Columbia’s Okanagan Lake continue to enjoy the best of a B.C. summer — and that’s causing problems for firefighters working in the area.Glen Burgess of the BC Wildfire Service said the boaters are impeding the response of firefighters’ support aircraft, which use the lake as a bucketing tool and water source.Burgess said the wildfire had spread down to the shoreline but was not keeping boaters away from well-known recreational hot spots, and the RCMP was eventually called in to help keep the public away.“Boaters are still trying to use them despite the fire being literally right there, and it began to interfere with our bucketing operations,” Burgess said during a briefing Saturday.Fire Information Officer Noelle Kekula said in an interview Sunday that boaters were getting too close to the helicopters and skimmers, amphibious tanker planes that can hold more than 3,000 litres of water or fire-retardant chemicals, and need room to take off once they fill up.“Think of (the lake) like an airstrip: the skimmers need to come in and land, and then they need enough room to take off again,” she said, adding that both the helicopters and skimmers become significantly more heavy when full of water.The helicopters lower a 950-litre bucket into the water to fill up, said Kekula, and can drop the water more precisely than the “shotgun” approach the skimmers take when emptying above a blaze.Kekula said she’s especially frustrated by the repeated warnings to boaters whose actions are putting firefighters and their communities in danger and creating “incredible safety issues.”She said she did not know the motivation behind the boaters getting dangerously close to the aircraft, but said she would not be surprised if they were thrill-seekers trying to ride the large wakes created by the skimmers.“It’s the million-dollar question as to why people are interfering with our operations,” said Kekula.Kekula hopes the warnings to the public, along with RCMP involvement, will help boaters manage themselves properly.The wildfire in Okanagan Mountain Provincial Park has grown to nearly 14 square kilometres and is classified as out of control by the BC Wildfire Service.— By Spencer Harwood in Vancouver (Follow him on Twitter @SpenceHarwood)last_img read more

Morocco Says Shale Oil Exploitation Will Start in Five Years

Marrakech- The National Office of Hydrocarbons and Mining (ONHYM) clarified in a statement issued on 3rd September that shale oil production from San Leon’s Timahdit permit, which is 240 km south East of Rabat, will only start in 5 years.Whilst initial testing results by San Leon Energy were encouraging they need to be complemented by further research, including environmental feasibility and technical studies.The production, which would be limited to 10,000 barrels a day would not take place before 5 years, the statement said. ONHYM has been careful to manage to manage expectations in the current drilling run for oil and gas this year.© Morocco World News. All Rights Reserved.

UN backs first international meeting on organic seeds

The three-day First World Conference on Organic Seed is jointly organized by FAO and the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements. Around 300 participants from private companies, non-governmental and farmers’ organizations, scientific institutions and government agencies are expected to attend. Although certified organic agriculture represents less than two per cent of agricultural land worldwide, but the sector is constantly growing, according to FAO. Last year, global organic food retail sales grew by 8 per cent in Europe and 12 per cent in the US. Over 100 developing countries are exporting certified organic products. Higher consumer demand, an increasing interest by supermarkets and government programmes stimulating organic production are the driving forces behind the growth of the organic sector, FAO said. But the agency warned that organic producers are facing problems because conventional varieties and seeds often perform poorly under the conditions of organic agriculture, resulting in low yields. The seed industry offers only a very limited range of seed varieties suitable for organic production.New requirements by the European Union to use organically produced seed in organic production are difficult for poor countries to meet. The conference aims to provide a discussion forum for knowledge and information exchange between farmers, individuals operating throughout the organic supply chain, scientists, the seed industry and policy makers. read more

Pledging funds UN envoy to Liberia welcomes reconciliation commission

Helping launch a reconciliation commission to heal the societal wounds of Liberia’s brutal 14-year civil war, the United Nations envoy to the West African country said that the UN Development Programme (UNDP) would donate $500,000 to aid its operations.Alan Doss, the Special Representative of Secretary-General Kofi Annan, also praised Liberian President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, who came to office in January, for the commitment she has shown to setting up the long-delayed Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC).“The priority you have given to the inauguration of the TRC is yet another proof of your resolve to push ahead vigorously with your good governance agenda,” Mr. Doss said at the opening ceremony in the capital Monrovia, at which the nine members of the Commission took their oaths of office.Presiding over that ceremony, President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf said that the inauguration was an “unprecedented testament to the courage we have summoned as a nation and people to reckon with our shameful and despicable past.”“This commission is our hope – to define the past on our behalf in terms that are seen and believed to be fair and balanced, and bring forth a unifying narrative on which our nation’s rebuilding and renewal processes can be more securely anchored,” she said.According to the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL), the President told the Commissioners that they were to “document all abuses, validate and establish the narratives of both victims and victimizers; while paying particular attention to women, children, the elderly and other vulnerable members of society; and to provide at the end of their mandate, clear and workable recommendations on how Liberia can collectively make restitution for the past – and move on in unity to face the future.”The ceremony was attended by members of Liberia’s three-branches of government as well as by representatives of the diplomatic corps and international organizations. read more

UN experts urge Ukraine to stop systematic persecution of Roma minority

“We unequivocally condemn these heinous acts of intimidation and violence against members of the Roma minority in Ukraine,” the three UN experts said in a news release from the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).“We are also seriously concerned at the growing hatred and racially-motivated violence against this community – and in particular against its most vulnerable members; women and children,” they added.The independent experts are all Special Rapporteurs, appointed by the Human Rights Council in Geneva: Leilani Farha, on adequate housing as a component of the right to an adequate standard of living; Fernand de Varennes, on minority issues; and E. Tendayi Achiume, on contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance.The wave of attacks began in April 2018, and targeted women and children in different regions of the country, including the capital Kyiv, as well as in Kharkiv, Ternopil and Lviv.Roma settlements were set on fire and residents intimidated, assaulted, and forced to leave their homes. The UN experts state that the perpetrators were members of extreme right-wing groups, such as the so-called “Sich-C14” and the “National Brigades”.“These attacks demonstrate a disturbing pattern of systematic persecution of Roma in Ukraine, compounded by rising hate speech and stigmatization, which appears to be nurtured by the current political and economic situation in the country,” the UN experts warned. They deplored the apparent absence of effective measures by the Ukrainian authorities to protect members of the Roma minority.Special Rapporteurs examine and report back on a specific human rights theme or a country situation. The positions are honorary and the experts are not UN staff, nor are they paid for their work. read more

Baltimore Ravens Sign Veteran Dallas Clark

The Baltimore Ravens signed veteran tight end Dallas Clark to a deal Sunday, the team announced.“[General Manager] Ozzie [Newsome] has an agreement in principle with Dallas Clark as of today,” Head Coach John Harbaugh said Sunday. “So he’ll be in tomorrow to get a physical. Obviously, all of that is going to have to pan out for us to finalize it, but Dallas Clark is on his way to Baltimore right now.”Clark is a 10-year veteran who played nine years for the Indianapolis Colt. While there, he played under Ravens current Offensive Coordinator Jim Caldwell. Clark was one of quarterback Peyton Manning’s favorite targets in Caldwell’s offense.This signing will bring stability to a tight end position after the team has lost their two starters in that position in Dennis Pitta and Ed Dickson to injury.In addition to Clark, the Baltimore Ravens has also signed veteran Brandon Stokely. Harbaugh says even with the two players’ long-time status, they will still have to fight for roster spots.“They’re both really accomplished players. We’re excited to have them,” Harbaugh said. “By no means though is anything guaranteed, and they understand that. They want an opportunity to compete for a job. They’ll be in competition for a job with our guys that are here, and we’ll see how that plays out. That’s how we like it.” read more

Duchess of Cambridge says kindness and respect are as important as academic

first_imgThe Duchess of Cambridge has said she wants to teach her children the importance of respect, honesty and kindness.Kate said making Prince George, the future King, and his sister Princess Charlotte aware of the value of these qualities was just as important as academic or sporting success.The Duchess’s comments came as she celebrated pupils with the “K factor”, or kindness factor, during a visit to Mitchell Brook Primary in north-west London with her husband the Duke for the launch of Children’s Mental Health Week.The annual event – which this year has the theme Spread A Little Kindness – is an initiative founded by the mental health charity Place2Be, which has Kate as royal patron, and runs counselling sessions at Mitchell Brook in Neasden. The engagement is part of a series of events the Duke and Duchess are undertaking – many with Prince Harry – to promote the royal trio’s Heads Together mental health campaign.Heads Together is a umbrella organisation – with Place2Be a member – that aims to change the national conversation around psychological issues to a positive one.The couple watched the assembly from a kindness bench. Normally sited in the school playground, it is used by children who feel lonely or need a chat and other pupils know to come forward and support them.On Sunday they were in very different surroundings with William, Kate and Harry taking to a track at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to support runners taking part in the London Marathon for Heads Together.During the assembly a Kindness Cup was awarded to Nadia Dhicis, aged 10, who was recognised as the most supportive pupil in the school. William and Kate later chatted to six children in the school’s library, with two Place2Be counsellors, and listened to their experiences.Jarrel Mulimbi and Kofi Appiah, two 10-year-old friends, told the royal couple how they bonded four years ago after Kofi told his friend a made-up story to see if he could keep the secret, and he could.The Duchess told Jarrel: “It’s so fantastic you’ve found that friendship here… so you can come in and know you’ve got a buddy you can trust and share your feelings with.”The royal couple were asked about the London Marathon – which is supporting their Heads Together campaign – and after Kate described how they wanted to get everyone talking about mental health issues William joked “although I think as they’re running it could be quite difficult”.Nicola Harmer, the school’s deputy head teacher, said: “The children were amazing on the stage, they were very very confident, even in the library when we were talking to the Duke and Duchess, the children could really confidently express how they were able to spread kindness themselves and look after their own well-being.”What’s clear, while this is an amazing one-off event for us, it’s really at the core of what we do here at Mitchell Brook.”Jarrel said about the royal couple after they had left: “They were brilliant, they weren’t spoilt – they were good people because they actually think about other people and how they affect the world.”They’re very important because they’re royalty, they have a lot of power but they use that power to help others.” The Duchess of Cambridge arrives at the Mitchell Brook Primary School, north LondonCredit:Ian Vogler/Daily Mirror/PA Wire The Duke and Duchess (left) of Cambridge attend the Place2Be Big Assembly with Heads Together for Children's Mental Health Week at the Mitchell Brook Primary School, north London The Duke and Duchess (left) of Cambridge attend the Place2Be Big Assembly with Heads Together for Children’s Mental Health Week at the Mitchell Brook Primary School, north LondonCredit: Ian Vogler/Daily Mirrorcenter_img Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Kate, who wore an outfit by Luisa Spagnoli, said: “My parents taught me about the importance of qualities like kindness, respect, and honesty, and I realise how central values like these have been to me throughout my life.”That is why William and I want to teach our little children George and Charlotte just how important these things are as they grow up.”In my view it is just as important as excelling at maths or sport.”Speaking during a special school assembly where those with the K factor were recognised, the Duchess added: “People often ask me why I am so interested in the mental health of children and young people.”The answer is quite simple – it is because I think that every child should have the best possible start in life.”When I was growing up I was very lucky. My family was the most important thing to me.”They provided me with somewhere safe to grow and learn, and I know I was fortunate not to have been confronted by serious adversity at a young age.” The Duchess of Cambridge arrives at the Mitchell Brook Primary School, north London Show more last_img read more

Credit Union chief says there is no evidence 100 movements are in

first_imgCredit unions are well capitalised, with total capital of €1.86 billion in ROI credit unions.“Overall ROI credit unions have over €600 million in surplus capital above the levels required by the Central Bank. These capital buffers are in addition to the provisions credit unions have set aside for bad and doubtful debts.”Read: Newbridge Credit Union taken over by Permanent TSBRead: Gilmore: Newbridge Credit Union is a one-off case THE HEAD OF the Irish League of Credit Unions says that there is “no evidence” that 100 credit unions are in serious difficulty.Reports today said that one quarter of the movement’s 393 individual establishments were in trouble and had been placed on a Central Bank watchlist.Although the Central Bank says that it cannot comment on it, sources insist that the list covers a range of regulatory concerns that the Central Bank has, not just loan repayments.In light of the decision to put Newbridge Credit Union into Permanent TSB, the spotlight is very much on credit unions, but ILCU chief executive Kieron Brennan says that he has seen no evidence to suggest the movement is in trouble.“It is the view of the ILCU that that there are not 100 credit union in “serious trouble”.“Our figures tell us otherwise. There is no specific detail in the newspaper articles which substantiate the claim.“The ILCU member credit unions have withstood a sharply deteriorating economic situation over the last five years.

5000 fine over tree removal

first_imgA property developer has been convicted and fined $5000 for illegally cutting down a dozen trees on the site of his planned $20 million Toorak mansion according to a report in The Age. Harry Stamoulis, 44, who bought the half-hectare St Georges Road property for a record $24 million in 2010, was also ordered to pay $8000 costs. Stamoulis had pleaded guilty to the removal of 12 trees characterised as “significant” without a permit. Prosecutor Mathew Sherwell told Melbourne Magistrates Court earlier this month an officer with the City of Stonnington investigated a complaint in December 2010 about the removal of trees. Mr Sherwell said Stamoulis denied knowing the trees were deemed significant, and was unaware he needed a permit. Defence barrister Robert Barry said the council had told Stamoulis there were no trees on the property listed as significant. Mr Barry said a council arborist had identified the 12 trees but this had not been listed on the registry. He told magistrate Ann Collins that Stamoulis was embarrassed and took the matter seriously. When the case resumed , Nick Papas, SC, for Stamoulis – a prominent member of Melbourne’s Greek community and a board member of Melbourne Victory soccer club – emphasised his client’s lack of prior convictions and that the arborist had not told his client that significant trees had been identified.

Grammy noms 9 for Beyonce 8 each for Drake Rihanna Kanye

first_imgNEW YORK — The Grammy Awards are sipping all of Beyonce’s lemonade.The pop star leads the 2017 Grammys with nine nominations, including bids for album of the year with “Lemonade,” and song and record of the year with “Formation.” The singer, who already has 20 Grammys and is the most nominated woman in Grammy history with 62 nods over the course of her career, is also the first artist to earn nominations in the pop, rock, R&B and rap categories in the same year.Behind Beyonce are Drake, Rihanna and Kanye West, who scored eight nominations each.Like Beyonce, Adele is also nominated for album, record and song of the year. For album of the year, “Lemonade” and “25” — which has sold 10 million copies in a year — will compete against Drake’s multi-hit “Views,” Justin Bieber’s redemption album “Purpose” and surprise nominee “A Sailor’s Guide to Earth,” the third album from respected and rebellious country singer Sturgill Simpson.Beyonce’s “Formation” and Adele’s “Hello” are up against Rihanna and Drake’s “Work,” twenty one pilots’ “Stressed Out” and Lukas Graham’s “7 Years” for record of the year. “7 Years” is also up for song of the year — a songwriter’s award — battling Bieber’s “Love Yourself,” co-written with Ed Sheeran, Mike Posner’s “I Took a Pill In Ibiza,” as well as Beyonce and Adele’s songs.Beyonce’s nine nominations include best rock performance (“Don’t Hurt Yourself” with Jack White), pop solo performance (“Hold Up”), rap/sung performance (“Freedom” with Kendrick Lamar) and urban contemporary album (“Lemonade”).“Artists are feeling emboldened and courageous and just wanting to step out of the predictable boundaries of what they have done. Of course, (Beyonce) is the poster child for that,” Recording Academy CEO and President Neil Portnow said in an interview with The Associated Press.last_img read more

Its the End of the Road for BZ Media

first_imgBZ Media, the Melville, New York-based entrepreneurial B2B publisher, has sold its flagship print brand, Software Development Times, and is in the process of selling off other assets—essentially winding down the company’s existence and divesting it brand by brand.The company, co-founded by current CEO Ted Bahr in 1999, sold its two-year-old drone-industry tradeshow to Emerald Expositions in March, but it will manage the 2017 event in September.Ted BahrIn an excerpt from a companywide memo written by Bahr that was posted on the company’s website, he wrote, “It’s been a terrific 17 years and we survived the Tech Downtown of 2001 and the Great Recession of 2008.”“It was—and will be for a while longer—a good place to work. It’s been a great ride and while it will be ending, you will all be well-equipped for your next great adventure,” Bahr added. Perhaps it’s only the end of one B2B media company, an individual decision by an individual owner looking to convert equity to wealth. Or perhaps it’s an indication that the old days of B2B media are over — a once-relatively straightforward business transformed beyond recognition by new technologies and different approaches. What’s certain, though, is that Bahr and his co-founder, Alan Zeichick (who left the company in 2013), were among the higher-profile examples of entrepreneurial B2B practitioners — learning their craft at big companies and striking out successfully on their own.In conversations I had with Bahr even in very recent years, he remained a proponent of print media and SD Times, calling himself the “Last Samauri.”“We have successfully produced a print publication — our flagship, SD Times — many years after all of our competitors have folded,” Bahr said in the memo, which in several parts sounded like a valedictory. “The company has hired and nurtured nearly 100 people over the years, providing jobs and new skills while generating more than $30 million in incomes. BZ Media paid nearly $2 million in healthcare premiums and more than $2.5 million in payroll and social security taxes — all of this came from nothing.”Software Development Times and related digital properties were sold to D2 Emerge, a new company formed by two BZ Media veterans. The principals are David Lyman, former vice president of sales for BZ Media, who is now the CEO of D2 Emerge, and Dave Rubinstein, former editorial director of BZ Media, who takes over as executive vice president.“I am thrilled that SD Times has been bought by the team most responsible for making the publication what it is,” Bahr says. “ This is a win-win for everyone involved as most of the staff is able to go with the publication and digital assets and focus on and grow them.”Divesting a traditional media brand is a hit-or-miss proposition these days. It’s telling that BZ Media is being divested in parts, and that the acquirers are senior managers from the flagship BZ Media brand. But Bahr is nevertheless bullish. “For years I had been told by my peers in the industry that my print magazine, SD Times, would be valued at zero by potential buyers,” he says in a press release issued by the deal broker, Corporate Solutions LLC’s Nick Curci. “Boy, were they wrong. We conducted an auction with 36 interested parties and four strong bids. We accepted the highest bid.”“We are excited to be taking over the strong SD Times title and brand, and look forward to maintaining the magazine’s leading position in the software development sector while growing our subscriber base and expanding our print and digital footprint,” says Lyman, who will also retain his position as publisher of the magazine.“As we’ve been publishing SD Times for such a long time, we understand the market and the needs of our readers and advertisers,” says Rubinstein, who will serve as COO and editor-in-chief of SD Times. “Our mission remains to provide articles that give our readers the information they need to keep up with the fast-changing development landscape, and to give our advertisers multiple platforms to put their messages out to our readers.”last_img read more

SpiceJet Boeing deal Lowcost carrier places order for 205 aircraft worth 22

first_imgIn what is said to be one of the biggest deals in India’s aviation history, SpiceJet, India’s low-cost carrier has confirmed its plan to purchase 205 Boeing jets for $22 billion (about Rs 1.5 lakh crore) from the US-based aircraft manufacturer. With the deal, SpiceJet is seeking to win the market share from its dominant rival — IndiGo Airlines. The deal, which includes 100 firm 737 Max 8 jets, will build on an existing order for 55 aircraft, the carrier said in a statement on Friday.Also read: Boeing strikes big deal with SpiceJet for 92 Boeing 737 jetlinersAdditionally, the airline also has the option to buy 50 more wide-bodied aircraft. With this, the total order stands at $22 billion at the listed price. “SpiceJet’s new order underscores it’s drive to compete more effectively in India’s cut-throat low cost travel market. The deal for up to 205 737MAXs will certainly put it on par with Indigo for domestic dominance and the added range of the 737MAX fleet will allow SpiceJet to open up routes deeper into Asia and even parts of Europe/CIS states,” Saj Ahmad, chief analyst at StrategicAero Research, told the International Business Times, India.The deal is seen as a win-win situation for both the parties: The latest order could help SpiceJet become the largest airline in India (as per fleet size), as it competes with IndiGo, which controls the world’s fastest-growing aviation market with 42 per cent market share. For Boeing, this deal could signal the aircraft an entry into the Indian market, which is dominated by Airbus. Last month, SpiceJet had a market share of 12.8 per cent (according to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation).”Our turnaround story has been one which has very few parallels in the world today and we are proud of it. SpiceJet has achieved seven consecutive quarters of profit, highest on-time performance and lowest cancellation rates; a record load factor of over 90% every month for 20 months in a row – a feat that has no parallel in aviation history,” Ajay Singh, chairman and managing director, SpiceJe, said in the statement.SpiceJet placed its first order with Boeing in 2005 for Next-Generation B737s and currently operates 32 of the B737s in its fleet besides 17 Bombardier Q400s.The SpiceJet stock closed at Rs 65.50 on Friday, up 2.50 percent from its previous close on the Bombay Stock Exchange.last_img read more
