Memorial to Polish refugees to be unveiled in Kolhapur

first_imgWhen Poland was caught between Adolf Hitler’s Germany and Josef Stalin’s Russia during the Second World War, a stream of refugees made their way to Valivade village in Kolhapur district, 235 km from Pune.Here, they tasted freedom after having endured the living hell of Soviet camps following their deportation by the dreaded NKVD or the Soviet secret police.On Saturday, a commemorative pillar in memory of these Polish families and individuals who lived in Valivade between 1942 and 1948 will be unveiled by Deputy Foreign Minister of the Polish Republic Marcin Przydacz, Polish Ambassador to India Adam Burakowski and Guardian Minister of Kolhapur Chandrakant Patil, said Bharatiya Janata Party Member of Parliament from Kolhapur, Chhatrapati Sambhaji Raje.“At a time when the world was torn apart by war, Europe was ravaged and parts of India were in the grip of a terrible famine, the Chhatrapatis of Kolhapur adopted these Polish families on humanitarian grounds. We want to keep this sentiment alive through the memorial and the museum, which will strengthen Indo-Polish ties,” said Mr. Sambhaji Raje.A permanent museum dedicated to the memory of the 5,000 Polish people who lived in the Valivade camp will come up within a year, he said.A 29-member Polish delegation, which included those who had lived at the camp as well as their relatives, recalled their association with Kolhapur after 72 years during a tour of the historic Panhala fort. They reminisced, too, their journey to India through Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan from the Soviet camps in Siberia and the Urals. They first reached Jamnagar in Gujarat, where the ruler, Jam Saheb Digvijayasinhji Jadeja, in a noble gesture, took the refugees under his wing. From there, some of the migrants proceeded to Kolhapur. Wanda Nowicka was among those who stayed on in Valivade even after the others left. She married a local, Vasant Kashikar and bore five children. “One of the early camps for the Polish migrants was set up up in Karachi in 1946,” says Umesh Kashikar, one of the sons of the late Nowicka nee Kashikar. “From there, some of them went to Jamnagar and then to Valiwade. It was here that our parents met and were united for life,” said Mr. Kashikar, who works with a Mumbai-based cooperative bank.Ludmila Jakutowicz, now in her eighties, came to the Valivade camp in 1943. “I left in February 1948. My mother brought me a Kolhapuri bangle in Christmas of 1947 and I have never taken it off since then. After 72 years, this bangle is my fond memory of Kolhapur and India and of the ties that bind Poland and India,” she said.Poland was dismembered by the 1939 Nazi-Soviet Union pact or ‘the Devil’s Alliance’, with the cream of Poland’s officer corps, which included several members of the country’s intelligentsia, massacred by the NKVD in the Katyn Forest in 1940.The refugees, who were deported and lodged in Stalin’s camps and finally made it to India, were the fortunate ones to flee Europe’s bloodlands after Hitler invaded the Soviet Union in June 1941. “I was four years old when I was deported from Poland to the camps in the Soviet Union. India gave me my first fond memories,” said Lancucka Labus, now nudging 80.With the cooperation and affection of the citizens of Kolhapur, Valivade soon transformed into a ‘mini Poland’, with its own church, schools and even a cinema.Today, several members of the delegation recalled their visits to the Panhala fort, their swim in the nearby river and the warmth of the people of Kolhapur.last_img read more

US Open: Querrey tramples over Zverev to reach quarter-finals

first_img COMMENT SHARE SHARE EMAIL tennis Sam Querray US Open 2017 × Sam Querray US Open 2017 Sam Querrey, the last American man standing at the US Open, would not be knocked off his feet as he strolled into the quarter–finals at Flushing Meadows with a 6–2 6–2 6–1 demolition of Germany’s Mischa Zverev on Sunday.What looked an intriguing matchup of styles between the big-hitting American and Zverev, a left-handed serve-volleyer, was rendered a one-sided show for a delighted capacity crowd at Arthur Ashe Stadium.Querrey—looking to followup his semi-final run at Wimbledon with an even better effort at Flushing Meadows—needed just 77 minutes to dismiss the German to become the first American to reach the US Open quarter-finals since Andy Roddick in 2011.It was a ruthless performance by Querrey as he bombarded Zverev with 18 aces and avenged the German’s victory over top seeded American John Isner in the third round.“I really could not have done anything much better out there, I was kind of in the zone. It’s my first time playing out here at night and I wanted to make the most of it,” said Querrey. “I came out of the chute hot and once I broke early I felt I was off to the races and I felt comfortable three minutes into the match and I think that was the key,” he said.Querrey stormed out of the gate breaking his 30 year–old opponent at the first opportunity and again to clinch the opening set in a lightning quick 24 minutes. After tearing through the second set, Querrey charged to 5–0 in the third as Zverev, who opened the tournament with two five–set matches, appeared completely out of gas.Next up for Querrey will be South Africa’s Kevin Anderson who was a 6–4, 6–3, 6–7(4), 6–4 winner over Italian Paolo Lorenzi.“He’s got a big game, he’s got a big serve, he goes for the big shots,” said Querrey. “It just gets tougher the further you go and that is going to be my toughest one yet. Anything from here is a bonus, I’m just going out and going to play the best I can,” he said.center_img SHARE USA COMMENTS September 04, 2017 Published onlast_img read more

Liverpool, Everton, Chelsea advance in English League Cup

first_imgWatford and West Bromwich Albion were beaten by third-tier opposition in the English League Cup on Tuesday, while fellow Premier League sides Liverpool and Everton enjoyed big wins in the second round.Chelsea was pushed hard by third-tier Bristol Rovers before also advancing to the third round with a 3-2 win at Stamford Bridge.Watford lost 2-1 to Gillingham after extra time and West Brom was beaten 4-3 on penalties by Northampton after they finished 2-2 after 120 minutes.Northampton famously ousted Liverpool in the 2010-11 competition, but the Reds easily avoided a so-called “giant-killing” this time round by thrashing Burton Albion 5-0. Daniel Sturridge came off the bench to score two goals and wrap up victory over the second-tier side managed by former Liverpool forward Nigel Clough.Divock Origi and Roberto Firmino also scored for a full-strength Liverpool team, and there was an own goal. (Also read: Burnley stun Liverpool 2-0 with classy double)”Very serious, very professional performance by my side,” said Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp, who added that second-half injuries to Emre Can and Origi were not serious.Everton also had a substitute striker scoring a late double, with Arouna Kone’s goals sealing a 4-0 home win over fourth-tier Yeovil.Chelsea manager Antonio Conte’s decision to field a team largely made up of reserve players nearly backfired. Belgium striker Michy Batshuayi scored two first-half goals as Chelsea took a 3-1 lead into halftime, before Rovers scored a 48th-minute penalty and struck the crossbar as they went in search of an equalizer.advertisementDevoid of European football this season, Liverpool and Chelsea will likely take the League Cup seriously. They are two of the most successful clubs in the competition’s history, having won it 13 times between them.Stoke, Swansea, Hull and Crystal Palace were the other Premier League teams to progress to the third round, when clubs involved in Europe enter the draw that takes place Wednesday. Peter Crouch scored a hat trick – including one goal from a scissor kick – in Stoke’s 4-0 win at Stevenage, Oliver McBurnie scored twice on his debut for Swansea in a 3-1 win at Peterborough, Hull beat Exeter 3-1 away and Palace was a 2-0 winner at home to Blackpool.Palace gave a debut to new record-signing Christian Benteke, who played the first half before being substituted.Derby beat Carlisle 14-13 on penalties to equal the most goals scored in a shootout in the competition’s history.last_img read more

AIFF emergency committee rules out IFA decision in Abinash Ruidas, East Bengal conflict

first_imgAbinash Ruidas will still have to wait to figure out his future in the 2017-18 season as AIFF Emergency Committee have ruled that the federation’s decision will be final but the decision will be taken by the AIFF Players Status Committee.According to AIFF statement, Ruidas in involved in a case with East Bengal wherein the former is asking to be left free to play in another state while the club representatives are saying that Ruidas is bound to play for them.East Bengal are laying claim on Ruidas based on the ‘token’ of the player they possess while Ruidas claims that the club forced him to sign on a blank paper are are now misusing it and forging his signature on the documents he’s unaware of.Indian Football Association, West Bengal (IFA), under whom East Bengal and their players come, earlier ruled that since East Bengal possessed the ‘token’ of Ruidas, the player was contracted with them. AIFF reviewed that ruling and since there was nothing on paper, they let Ruidas be a free player and he was a part of the Indian Super League draft where he was picked by Mumbai City FC. Now Mumbai City FC are asking for an NOC from East Bengal for Ruidas.As per the directions of the AIFF Special Committee, Emergency Committee met at AIFF Football House on August 3 to review the jurisdiction of the AIFF and State Association and to adjudicate the status of Ruidas in view of the dispute between him and East Bengal relating to validity or sustainability of the contract for the 2017-18 season.advertisementThe Committee reviewed the AIFF Constitution and AIFF regulations for the Status and Transfer of Players as well as various circulars issued by FIFA relating to the fundamentals of a contract to be entered between a club and a player.It also reviewed the decision of the IFA’s Players Status Committee as the Constitution of IFA stipulates that whichever Club is in possession of the token of a player has the ‘legal right’ of registering the player in the club for the forthcoming season.Based on the review of the above, the Special Committee decided as follows:1. The decision of the IFA dated July 28, 2017 relating to the legal rights of the player on the basis of the token cannot be sustained and/or enforced.2. AIFF is the authority to adjudicate the disputed subject issue in its entirety including the Status of the Player and/or whether there exists any valid and binding written contract, and whether there has been mandatory compliance of Articles 4.3 and 5 of the AIFF regulations for the Status and Transfer of Players.3. As per the AIFF Constitution and AIFF regulations for the Status and Transfer of players, the “Players Status Committee” of the AIFF is entrusted with exclusive powers to deal with and settle the ‘dispute’ as the status of the player and his contractual validity.4. Any other or further decision of the IFA relating to or arising out of the subject issue of Abinash Ruidas cannot be sustained/enforced.Accordingly to these decision by the Emergency Committee, the matter relating to validity of the contracts of the players, and Ruidas in particular, will be dealt by the AIFF Players Status Committee at a meeting to be summoned soon.last_img read more

Isles Beat Caps, 3-1, Force Game 7

first_imgUNIONDALE, N.Y. — Islanders captain John Tavares was still attempting to gather his bearings after being leveled in the corner, when he heard the familiar — and welcome — roar go up inside the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum for what could be the last time.“Yes! Yes! Yes!” the orange towel-waving crowd yelled in unison as part of its traditional goal chant.Sparked by Tavares’ rush, Nikolay Kulemin scored the go-ahead goal with 9:27 left in a 3-1 victory over the Washington Capitals on April 25 that forced a seventh game in the first-round playoff series.When did Tavares know the Isles had scored? “Just when I saw everyone going crazy,” Tavares said. “I’m just happy it went in.”Tavares had a goal and assist, Nick Leddy had two assists, and Cal Clutterbuck scored into an empty net with 53 seconds left.Now the two Metropolitan Division rivals who finished the season with 101 points each will meet April 27 in Washington to decide who advances to face the Presidents’ Trophy-winning New York Rangers.Tavares and the Isles were excited to reward their home fans with a win.The next objective is to advance to the second round and deliver at least two more home games before the Islanders make the 28-mile-move west to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn next season.“We want to keep this thing going. We want to be able to play in front of them even more,” defenseman Brian Strait said. “To not keep it going, it doesn’t matter. It’s a failure.”John Carlson scored for the Capitals, who had won the previous two games, including a 5-1 win on April 23.“To me, at the end of the day, their desperation level was higher than ours,” Capitals coach Barry Trotz said. “Now we’re both desperate.”Kulemin’s goal capped a frantic series of plays, which began with a shoving match between numerous players in front of the benches.Seeing the confusion at the benches, Tavares gathered the puck in his own zone and took off up the middle. Attempting to split two defenders, Tavares failed to get a shot off before being bowled over in the left corner by Alex Ovechkin and Karl Alzner.No one seemed to notice that the puck squirted to Leddy at the left boards. He then fed Kulemin, who was all alone in front. Kulemin went across the top of the crease and wrapped the puck inside the left post.Kulemin got to the front of the net after bullying his way through the crowd at the benches.“People were grabbing each other,” Kulemin said. “There was a lot of stuff going on that shift, and I just saw the open space in front of the net and went there.”Trotz placed part of the blame on Ovechkin for following Tavares into the corner.“If we would’ve made the right read, we probably wouldn’t have been in that situation, a one-on-one with the goalie,” Trotz said.Capitals goalie Braden Holtby was surprised by how open Kulemin was.“I’ve never seen a play like that, playing 2-on-2-hockey,” Holtby said. “You have to keep your composure a little better, not double-coverage. You don’t plan for that stuff. It’s tough to swallow.”The Capitals were a goal post away from tying it 4 minutes later.Jaroslav Halak stopped Troy Brouwer’s initial shot from the left circle, and the rebound dribbled into the slot.Jay Beagle got to it and lifted a shot over Halak but bounced it off the crossbar. The puck landed in the crease, where Islanders defenseman Johnny Boychuk shoveled it under Halak to stop the play.Tavares opened the scoring seven minutes in. The Capitals responded with Carlson’s power-play goal with 5 seconds left in the first, and with Tavares off for slashing.The Islanders overcame a lineup that was further depleted by injuries, and two defensemen making their playoff debuts.Matt Donovan stepped in for Griffin Reinhart, who struggled on April 23. And Scott Mayfield, who spent all this season in the minors, replaced Calvin de Haan, who was hurt during the third period of Game 5.New York is already down two regular defensemen, Travis Hamonic and Lubomir Visnovsky.The Islanders have a 3-4 record in Game 7s. The Capitals are 3-9, and 2-7 when hosting a seventh game.The Islanders are leaving Nassau County after 43 seasons.NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman on April 24 said the move was long overdue because the arena was outdated, and placed the blame on local politicians for failing to approve several proposed plans for a new arena.One fan carried a sign that read: “This Is Home, Not Brooklyn.”After the second period, fans inside the arena booed a commercial pitching season tickets for next season.Ovechkin made a joke to CSN Washington-TV that he might consider taking a chair home as a souvenir.(JOHN WAWROW, AP Hockey Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Mauricio Pochettino: Champions League not cups keeps me in a job

first_imgShare on WhatsApp Read more Share on Messenger FA Cup news Read more Share via Email Mauricio Pochettino Mauricio Pochettino believes he would have been sacked by now at Tottenham if all he had done was to win a domestic cup. The manager takes his team to League Two Tranmere in the FA Cup on Friday while he also has them in the Carabao Cup semi-finals, where they face Chelsea.Pochettino has never hidden where the domestic knockouts rank on his list of priorities and they are some way behind the Premier League and Champions League. It is his ambition to win one or both and to his mind being able to compete is of a higher value to the club and its standing than to win the FA Cup or Carabao Cup – even if he would love to do that. ‘We’re still here’: resurgent Tranmere take aim at Tottenham FA Cup upset Carabao Cup Share on Facebook Mauricio Pochettino: Tottenham’s win at Cardiff gives us title belief Pochettino has made it clear the club must offload players this month if they are to have the funds to refresh the squad as they contend with the costs of their new stadium. They will listen to offers for at least five players – Victor Wanyama, Mousa Dembélé, Fernando Llorente, Georges-Kévin N’Koudou and Vincent Janssen.Wanyama has disappeared off the radar this season because of a serious knee problem. He last played in the win at Crystal Palace on 10 November and Pochettino’s assistant, Jesús Pérez, said: “We will see probably in two weeks if he is ready to start to train.”Dembélé and Llorente are out of contract in June, with the former interested in a move to China or the Middle East and the latter linked with a return to Athletic Bilbao. Spurs are keen to remove Llorente’s wages from the books. It has emerged he takes home £100,000 a week, Spurs having had to pay a premium to take him from Swansea in 2017 ahead of Chelsea.Pochettino said: “It doesn’t just depend on us to regenerate the squad. In case we don’t sell players, it’s impossible to bring players in and to find the capacity to bring players in.” Share on Twitter Topics Share on LinkedIn Share on Pinterest Tottenham Hotspur Pochettino has yet to win a trophy in his managerial career and it is a stick with which he is sometimes beaten. He sets greater store by his three top-three Premier League finishes with Spurs and the accompanying Champions League qualifications.“To win the Carabao Cup and be in the middle of the Premier League table …” Pochettino said. “I think I would be sacked a few years ago – with two or three Carabao Cups or FA Cups. If you don’t finish how we have finished [in the league] in the last three seasons but win the FA Cup, I don’t know if Daniel [Levy, the Spurs chairman] would have too much patience with me or is nice to say: ‘OK, you’re 10th in the Premier League, I’ll give you a new contract.’“My ambition is to win the Champions League with Tottenham or the Premier League. That’s what puts you in a different level.”Pochettino will weigh up whether to use Harry Kane as a starter or substitute at Tranmere but he has promised to field a strong lineup notwithstanding Tuesday’s Carabao Cup semi-final, first leg against Chelsea at Wembley.

Heating Assistance Rebate Applications Now Available

first_imgLow and modest-income Nova Scotians may now apply for assistance under the province’s Heating Assistance Rebate Program. The application-based program was developed to help offset the high cost of home heating this winter. Individuals who earn $27,000 or less, or families with a combined income of $42,000 or less, that purchase home heating fuels can apply. Eligible Nova Scotians may receive up to a $450 rebate if heating with oil, propane, or natural gas, or up to a $150 rebate if heating with electricity, wood, coal, or wood pellets. “We recognize the burden the higher cost of home heating can have on Nova Scotians, especially those who can least afford it,” said Jamie Muir, Minister of Service Nova Scotia and Municipal Relations. “We encourage Nova Scotians who may be eligible for the rebate to apply.” More than 40,000 application packages have been sent to recipients of the old Keep the Heat program to encourage them to apply for home heating assistance. However, program requirements must be met to receive help under the Heating Assistance Rebate Program. Applications are available at Access Nova Scotia centres, from MLAs, Department of Community Services’ offices, community groups such as the Association for Community Living, Truro Anti Poverty Group and Feed Nova Scotia, on the government website at www.HeatSmart.ca, or by calling 1-800-670-4357. It may take up to eight weeks for completed applications to be processed and eligible Nova Scotians to receive Heating Assistance Rebate Program cheques. The Heating Assistance Rebate Program is part of Heat Smart, the province’s new $92-million program that provides home heating assistance this winter, and helps to save energy and money for years to come.last_img read more

Priti Patel takes charge as first British Indian home secretary

first_imgLondon: Priti Patel, an ardent Brexiteer who was among the most vocal critics of Theresa May’s Brexit strategy, took charge as Britain’s first Indian-origin home secretary as part of Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s top team on Thursday.She replaces Pakistani-origin Sajid Javid, who moves to the Treasury department as the first ethnic minority Chancellor of the Exchequer.”I will do everything in my power to keep our country safe, our people secure, and also to fight the scourge of crime that we see on our streets. I look forward to the challenges that now lie ahead,” Patel said, in reference to her new job at the helm of the UK Home Office. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c detailsPatel had been a prominent member of the “Back Boris” campaign for the Conservative Party leadership and was widely tipped for the plum post in the prime minister’s frontline team.”It is important that the cabinet should represent modern Britain as well as a modern Conservative Party,” she said, hours before her appointment was announced on Wednesday.A long-standing Eurosceptic, Patel had steered the “Vote Leave” campaign in the lead-up to the June, 2016 referendum in favour of Britain’s exit from the European Union (EU). Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from ThursdayThe 47-year-old was first elected as a Conservative MP for Witham in Essex in 2010 and gained prominence in the then David Cameron-led Tory government as his Indian Diaspora Champion.She went on to be appointed to junior ministerial posts, treasury minister in 2014 and then employment minister after the 2015 general election, before May promoted her to the position of secretary of state in the Department for International Development (DfID) in 2016, until she was forced to quit the post in 2017. “With Boris Johnson leading the Conservative Party and as prime minister, the United Kingdom will have a leader who believes in Britain, will implement a new vision for the future of the country and a roadmap to move forward and thrive as a self-governing nation that re-establishes our ties with our friends and allies around the world such as India,” Patel told PTI after Johnson secured a landslide victory in the Tory leadership contest earlier this week.”He is committed to securing new and improved trading relationship with our friends in India and ensuring that the values we share — the rule of law, democracy, and dynamic entrepreneurial spirit — should be at the heart of one of our most important partners on the global stage,” Patel, who has been a champion of India-UK ties ever since her time as Indian Diaspora Champion, said.The Gujarati-origin politician, who is a prominent guest at all major Indian diaspora events in the UK, is seen as an avid supporter of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the UK.As a member of the UK Parliament’s influential Foreign Affairs Committee (FAC), she was part of the team that recently released its damning report warning that the UK was falling behind in the race to engage with India at the end of a lengthy Global Britain and India parliamentary inquiry.”Our report calls for the government to look again at the relationship between the UK and India,” Patel said, in reference to the “Building Bridges: Reawakening UK-India ties” report released last month to mark the first-ever India Day in the UK Parliament.”This should be a special relationship based upon the living bridge between our two great countries and a partnership we should be nurturing. The report covers many of the missed opportunities where the UK should be proactively and bilaterally enhancing our ties. We are soon to have a new PM in the UK, which will provide a welcome change in how we engage with India’s re-elected PM Modi,” she said at the time.Patel once again returns as the seniormost British Indian member of the UK cabinet, having been forced to resign in November, 2017 as International Development secretary amid a scandal over allegedly failing to disclose meetings with officials in Israel without informing the UK Foreign Office.She had maintained that it was a private visit and Johnson, then the UK foreign secretary, spoke out to back her.Describing Patel as a “good friend” with whom he worked closely together for Global Britain, he had said it was “quite right that she meets with people and organisations overseas”.But Patel was effectively sacked by May, forcing her to the Parliament backbenches, from where she continued to voice her criticism of May’s Brexit plan.She was among the rebel Tory MPs who consistently voted against the former prime minister’s Withdrawal Agreement with the EU as a “bad deal for Britain”, which ultimately sealed May’s term at the top post.last_img read more

Police help Pikangikum youth build safer community

first_imgWillow FiddlerAPTN NewsOntario Provincial Police Sgt. Chris Amell is spending his Saturday morning knocking on doors in Pikangikum First Nation.“I’m here for your granddaughters,” he tells one person who answers.Having the police come to your door isn’t always good news.But Amell is not driving a police cruiser nor is he taking anyone to jail.In fact, he’s hoping to prevent that from happening – by picking up youth participants who need a ride to an event coordinated by Project Journey.“From a policing perspective although it’s not answering calls for service, it’s an investment so that we don’t have to answer calls for service,” he says.Amell has worked in Pikangikum since 2007.He’s been running Project Journey since it started in 2013.“A response to a lot of the tragedies that were occurring back in 2007 to 2009, there was a high rate of suicide and the police felt we were in a position to do more in terms of supporting the community to help overcome some of those challenges,” Amell tells APTN News.“When they’re given the opportunities to make healthy choices they… make healthy choices”The five-year project funded by Public Safety aims to reduce youth crime and solvent abuse in the remote First Nation. The program, delivered by the Ontario Provincial Police, is scheduled to end this year.Amell says Project Journey provides positive alternatives for the youth — who make up a large portion of the community.“When they’re given the opportunities to make healthy choices they almost 100 per cent of the time choose to make healthy choices,” he says.Pikangikum is about 500 km northwest of Thunder Bay and is only accessible by plane and boat.The community has a population of about 2,400 — and 97 per cent of the community speaks fluent Anishinaabemowin or Ojibway – and is the first language there.Pikangikum has struggled with social issues like suicides and addiction.“It gives the youth a lot of opportunities and more experiences in life”The chief coroner conducted a review after 16 suicides occurred between 2006 – 2008. All of them were children and youth between 10-19 years old.Tyra King is used to Amell knocking on her door now.“Yeah, it happens a lot,” she says laughing.The 16-year old got involved with Project Journey when it first started.“It gives the youth a lot of opportunities and more experiences in life,” King says.King is participating in a girls’ retreat at the school when APTN meets her. It’s one of the many positive experiences she’s had through regular participation with Project Journey.“I have my hair styling certification, I met Justin Trudeau, traveled a lot and went to conferences,” King says.She said it’s important to have these opportunities.“I faced a lot of alcoholism in my life and I, and the youth face that too a lot of times and a lot of losses of their loved ones. It affects them emotionally, physically and mentally,” says King.Amell says removing barriers that prevent participation is an essential part of the program’s success.“Whether it’s a pair of boots to do winter activities, whether it’s outdoor gear to go canoeing,” he says.“Just making sure they have everything they need so the only choice they really have to make is whether or not to participate.”Cst. Clayton Kenny is with the Pikangikum Police and has worked in the community for two years.On the day APTN meets him, he’s off-duty and helping a group of kids prepare for a canoe trip. It will be the second one he’s been on with Project Journey.“I’ve worked in a number of communities where this is actually the first time I’ve been able to do a program like this and work with the youth,” says Kenny.He believes land-based activities can empower youth.“As First Nations people they are part of the land,” he says.“They’re allowed to be themselves when they’re on the land and realize that they do have something to offer, some skills that they can excel in.”Rusty Keeper is the Youth Outreach Worker for Project Journey. He’s also planning to paddle along on the canoe trip.He knows the challenges that kids face in Pikangikum.“The youth were easily influenced to go start sniffing early. There was a lot of it growing up,” Keeper says.“I mostly stayed away from it but I saw a lot of other kids get turned, you know.”Keeper has also seen the impacts Project Journey has had on the youth.“I think it’s good for it to be here you know, so the kids can have someone to go to, you know to talk to someone.”“We’re seeing a reduction in youth crime, we’re seeing a reduction in solvent abuse”(Young people in Pikangikum take an interest in Willow’s camera during an interview) What will happen to Project Journey at the end of this year is still being worked out, according to Amell.Project Journey has developed partnerships with the community’s health and education authority organizations to possibly take over programming in the community.But one thing is clear.“We’re seeing a reduction in youth crime, we’re seeing a reduction in solvent abuse,” says Amell.And that’s not all.“We’re also seeing an increase in positive relationships between peers, between participants and their families, between participants and the community in general,” he says.Kenny says those connections are key to a safer community.“It’s very important to keep forming positive relationships especially with police because we do work for them and we do need those positive relationships to continue.”For King, who wants to be a makeup artist, Project Journey has opened her eyes to the possibilities ahead.“It gave me a lot of confidence in myself and it gave me a voice and it gave me opportunities and I’m very grateful to have it in my life,” she said.wfiddler@aptn.ca@willowblasizzolast_img read more

Thai diplomat chosen as next head of UN Human Rights Council

Sihasak Phuangketkeow becomes the fifth president of the 47-member Council, which replaced the earlier UN Commission on Human Rights that was scrapped amid concerns about its effectiveness. He was the candidate of the panel’s Asian members.Mr. Phuangketkeow told the Council today in Geneva that he wanted to concentrate over the next year on how members can use their “rich diversity” to forge a more united agenda on key human rights issues.Council members “need to draw synergy from such diversity, recognizing that human rights are indeed universal, indivisible and interdependent, and recognizing… that we all share a common stake in the credibility and effectiveness of the Council as a whole,” he said.Mr. Phuangketkeow succeeds Alex van Meeuwen of Belgium as the Council’s President.Meanwhile, on Friday the Council appointed several new special rapporteurs who will focus on monitoring human rights as they relate to certain issues or countries.Christof Heyns becomes the Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, succeeding Philip Alston; Heiner Bielefeldt replaces Asma Jahangir as the Special Rapporteur on freedom of religion or belief; and Kishore Singh takes over from Vernor Muñoz Villalobos as the Special Rapporteur on the right to education.Calin Georgescu is now Special Rapporteur on the adverse effects of the movement and dumping of toxic and dangerous products and wastes on the enjoyment of human rights, succeeding Okechukwu Ibeanu; Fatsah Ouguergouz replaces Akich Okola as the Independent Expert on the situation of human rights in Burundi; and Marzuki Darusman is the new Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), taking over from Vitit Muntarbhorn.Special Rapporteurs and Independent Experts report to the Human Rights Council and serve in both an independent and unpaid capacity. 21 June 2010Thailand’s Ambassador to the United Nations Office in Geneva was today named as the newest President of the UN Human Rights Council, the panel established in 2006 to tackle human rights violations worldwide. read more

Sri Lanka needs space to recover

Referring to the Commonwealth which is headquartered in London, Prof Peiris said it must be remembered that this is a voluntary organisation of 54 member-states with diverse cultures, ethnicities and value systems and that it cannot be a monolith.“If a few member-states attempt to turn such an organisation into a political tool in pursuit of their own agendas, it would not only damage the ethos that the Commonwealth represents but also threaten the very future of the organization,” he said. “These challenges cannot be answered and resolved overnight. They take time and a nation needs space to do so. Sri Lanka is urging that it be given the time and space,” the minister said. Destroyed infrastructure had to be rebuilt and the government invested enormous funds to resuscitate the economy of the war- ravaged areas so that the people would have a means of livelihood for them and their families, the Minister said. (Colombo Gazette) He also said that Sri Lanka is ready and willing to work with the international community to achieve these ends but it cannot be achieved if its efforts at peaceful resolution of its problems are met with constant vilification and castigation by a few in the international community. The Minister stressed that no other country that has emerged from years of internecine strife and terrorism has achieved what Sri Lanka has done in such a short time.He said that the country faced tremendous multiple challenges. Among these challenges was to provide food, shelter and medicines for nearly 300,000 persons displaced from the conflict areas. There were thousands of ex-combatants who had to be rehabilitated and returned to society. There were child soldiers of the LTTE who had to be helped and returned to their families.In addition there were hundreds of thousands of mines and other explosive devices that had to de-activated and removed so that displaced persons could return safely to their former homes and the land put to productive use. The government says Sri Lanka needs time to return to normalcy after nearly three decades of  terrorism and secessionist war.A statement by the External Affairs Ministry quoted Minister G.L Peiris as saying that the reconciliation and rehabilitation is a slow process as other countries that have gone through similar experiences will understand and appreciate. read more

OSC concerned about shift away from standard reporting methods CEO

OSC concerned about shift away from standard reporting methods: CEO TORONTO – The head of Ontario’s securities watchdog says its new whistleblower program can play a role in identifying misleading financial disclosures amongst the growing number of Canadian companies that have veered away from standardized reporting methods.OSC chair and CEO Maureen Jensen said she’s “very worried” about companies using non-standard methods — referred to as “non-GAAP measures” — to report earnings.Using customized reporting techniques can sometimes make a company’s financial performance appear rosier than it really is.In some cases, Jensen said the practice can veer into the realm of securities violation, if the reports are misleading in such a way that materially impacts the company’s stock price.“If the disclosure isn’t accurate then how can investors understand what they’re investing in?” she told reporters Tuesday following her speech to the Toronto Region Board of Trade.“As you move further and further away from standardized reporting, investors can understand it less and less.”Jensen said the OSC already has all of the tools it needs to enforce such cases — it’s just a matter of identifying misleading disclosures, something that the whistleblower program can help with.Since its launch in July, the Ontario Securities Commission’s whistleblower program has already garnered more than 30 tips detailing the kinds of securities law violations that the regulator is targeting in its enforcement actions, Jensen said Tuesday.“Some of them are the kinds of tips that we really wanted — serious offences or serious potential offences in areas that we would never be able to find, such as misstatements in accounting and disclosure violations,” she said.“Those are the types of things that we’re looking for, and that’s what is in some of those tips.”Under the program, the securities regulator offers rewards of up to $5 million for tips that lead to successful prosecution of serious securities law violations such as insider trading, accounting tricks and market manipulation.Several components of the OSC’s program were hotly debated during the consultation process, including how much to pay whistleblowers and whether those involved in the wrongdoing should be eligible for a reward.The OSC had originally planned to cap maximum reward payments to $1.5 million, but it raised that after experts suggested that was too little to compensate senior executives who risk losing high-paying jobs and being blacklisted from their industries.In her first keynote speech since taking the helm of the OSC, Jensen also talked about the need to beef up investor protection, reduce the regulatory burden on publicly traded companies and encourage more companies to improve gender diversity on their boards.Jensen highlighted an initiative by the Canadian Securities Administrators, a coalition of provincial securities regulators, to explore the possibility of banning embedded mutual fund fees.She argued that embedded fees encourage financial advisers to choose funds with higher fees, regardless of how well they are performing.The practice, which she deemed “unacceptable,” amounts to advisers putting their own needs ahead of their clients.The CSA will be publishing a consultation paper at the end of the year that will set out the possible impacts of prohibiting the use of embedded fees in mutual funds. Britain and Australia have banned the fees.“We know this would be a major change not only for advisers and firms, but also for investors,” Jensen said.“And so we must be confident that any reforms are appropriate for the Canadian market. That’s why input from all our stakeholders is necessary throughout this process.”Follow @alexposadzki on Twitter. by Alexandra Posadzki, The Canadian Press Posted Sep 27, 2016 11:09 am MDT Last Updated Sep 27, 2016 at 3:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Varsity sports cut at Newark campus

The OSU-Newark branch campus. Credit: Courtesy of OSUFor Chelsea Dobson, a fourth-year in art at Ohio State’s Newark campus, basketball games are a time for the campus to get together and share in one experience of fandom.“The main sport that I feel like gets the most attention is the basketball team. Usually, those are the best crowds,” said Dobson, who works as a student athletic assistant at OSU-Newark. “They will cheer, they yell crazy things when we have the ball and things like that.”But students at OSU-Newark will not get the chance to cheer on their team next year after it was announced on April 10 that varsity sports will no longer be offered beginning in the fall, because of budget reduction initiatives by the school.The school announced the decision as part of an email sent out to faculty and staff that said, as part of the budget planning for fiscal year 2016, the varsity athletic teams will be discontinued, effective June 30.OSU-Newark offers six varsity sports: women’s volleyball, women’s basketball, softball, men’s basketball, baseball and golf. The sports teams compete in the Ohio Regional Campus Conference, which is an “independent sports organization that serves the regional campuses of Ohio,” according to the email.The school’s recreational and intramural sports will continue on campus, the email said.William MacDonald, dean and director of OSU-Newark, said he understands the impact this decision will have on both student-athletes and the general student population.“It certainly will have an impact on them and I have talked to several of them,” he said. “I had a meeting with our student government and students they invited. Several athletes attended and they made a very well-reasoned argument as to how athletics can benefit students.”During the 2014-15 academic year, OSU-Newark had 70 student-athletes involved in the school’s athletic teams, said Holly Mason, director of student life at OSU-Newark.“Depending on the year and student interest, we typically have 70 – 100 student-athletes competing in varsity athletics in the course of an academic year,” Mason said in an email.MacDonald said the decision to cut varsity sports is part of one set of cuts that have been proposed to balance the budgets for both OSU-Newark and the Central Ohio Technical College, which shares the campus.The budget reduction plans are a necessity because of several economic factors related to the cost of tuition, MacDonald added.“Part of the budget that we built this year (was) based on the assumption that we would have a 2 percent tuition increase, but of course, we didn’t increase tuition by 2 percent,” he said. “The university plugged that hole for all units. And so that helped us this year, so looking to next year, that was one-time money that is going to go away, so we have to cover that gap.”In addition to this expense, which MacDonald said is approximately $290,000, another cost the school has to plan for is caused by the fact that fewer students are enrolling at COTC and that enrollment at OSU-Newark is predicted to remain relatively stagnant.“(COTC’s) enrollment has declined a little bit, our share of expenses will increase because our proportion of the student body is going to increase,” he said. “And then we have all of the uncertainty of the subsidies and tuition. We are not expecting growth in enrollment, at least not in the next couple of years. And so we won’t be seeing new revenue there.”MacDonald said the school has taken precautionary measures by reducing the budget so that these impending costs will be covered in the upcoming years. In total, he said, the school is looking to offset approximately $915,000 in possible expenses with cuts.“It’s conservative, but we have to balance the budget, so that is why we are setting that target,” he said.Although he said it is hard to decide what to cut, MacDonald added that he thinks the cuts the school is making are the ones necessary to preserve the services students need the most.“I would argue that right now, there are other things that we have wanted to do, but haven’t been able to do and probably won’t be able to do until we are able to get through this period of budget pressure,” he said. “If we were, let’s say three or four years from now, we had some sort of boost to our revenue, we know there are things that we want to do that we think will improve student success. Things like expanding our first-generation student learning community (or) providing more scholarships.“Those kind of things would all take priority over varsity athletics.”But it is not just athletics that are on the expenditure chopping block for next year. Other budget cuts announced in the Friday email include the restructuring of the Office of Student Life and the Office of Financial Aid, changes in the hours of operation of the Warner Library, the elimination of at least eight univeristy positions and the discontinuation of large-scale food events such as the fall welcome lunch, spring picnic and holiday reception.Dobson said students were surprised and disappointed upon hearing of these expected cuts, especially the elimination of varsity sports.“General student reaction has just been complete shock, especially with the student-athletes,” she said. “We had no idea that it was even up in the air. It was extremely shocking, just because there was no prior knowledge. It makes it even harder and it is really sad, especially because we felt like this coming year was going to be our year for sports.”Mason said discussions and planning are “currently taking place,” and the school is looking into ways to increase options for recreational and intramural sports, as well as other student organizations“Budget cuts are extremely difficult to endure,” she said. “My heart goes out to our student-athletes, our staff – both administrative and coaching and all that have participated in or been an influence to our program.”MacDonald said even though he understands why students are upset, he hopes they will continue to find ways to be involved in the campus community.“I am hoping that they will realize the value of an Ohio State degree and stick with it, even though they won’t have that opportunity to play varsity sports,” he said. “In the scheme of things, of course, we are looking at preserving the things that are most vital to student success. And in the scheme of things, varsity sports are just not that closely connected to the core of our mission.” read more

IMT launches new body design for Dominator III mechanics truck

first_imgIowa Mold Tooling Co Inc (IMT), the Oshkosh Corporation company and manufacturer of service vehicles, truck-mounted cranes, hydraulic loaders and air compressors for mining and other heavy industries, has announced the release of a new Dominator® III mechanics body. The new body design accommodates the IMT model 12000 telescopic crane without a front stabiliser for customers that do not require 100% lift capacity in all load zones.“Since its release, the IMT Dominator III mechanics truck has been serving a unique niche customer with mid-range lifting needs,” said Jim Hasty, IMT General Manager. “Our new body design is the result of listening to our customers’ needs, and demonstrates our unyielding commitment to providing reliable and durable products that help them get their work done.” The new Dominator III body will be available in both 11 ft and 14 ft lengths, replacing the existing 13 ft version. With two side pack configurations for each body length — a right front raised with the left side all raised and an all raised version — customers have four configuration options to choose from.The Dominator III model is designed for customers who need more lifting capacity than the Dominator II vehicle’s 10,000 lb maximum, but do not require the 14,000 lb capacity of the Dominator IV mechanics truck. Designed specifically to support the IMT 12000 telescopic crane, which provides up to 30 ft of reach and a Penta Boom™ design. With a flat top that eliminates stress concentrations inherent with certain boom designs and a half hex that controls tracking at long reaches, “the innovative five-sided boom offers premium strength and durability.”Standard features of the IMT 12000 telescopic crane include:• Ten degrees of negative boom angle, providing added versatility and allowing the crane to be reached more easily from ground level• A fully proportional piston grip radio remote control offering traditional fit and operation• LED overload indicator lights on the remote control handle that alert the operator when the crane is approaching overload condition and in overload• A flip sheave boom tip for added lift height in tight quarters• A planetary winch that allows for faster hoisting and lowering speeds and smoother overall operation• Patented boom hook stow that allows the boom hook to be stowed more easily and fasterThe Dominator III model also features excellent accessibility to tools — without losing any storage ¬— by providing front vertical compartments with single doors. IMT also incorporated the patented shelf hanger bracket system that enables quick adjustments of compartment shelves.  In addition, the truck features the new enhancements to the Dominator family:• A energy absorbing boom stow that protects the top of the body compartments from damage if too much pressure is exerted from stowing the crane• High-intensity LED compartment lighting• A multiplex electrical system with programmable logic for increased reliabilityThe new Dominator III mechanic bodies are available for order now and are currently planned to being shipping in December 2015.last_img read more

SFR veut exploiter la 4G à fond

first_imgSFR veut exploiter la 4G à fondLe deuxième opérateur français prépare sa première offre commerciale pour la 4G, pour un lancement en début d’année 2013. Pour autant, la 3G et le WiFi sont pas abandonnés…Est-ce la conséquence du récent débarquement de Franck Esser de son poste de PDG ? Toujours est-il que SFR semble déterminer à lancer sa grande offensive sur le terrain de la 4G, pour un lancement commercial en début d’année 2013. Cela débutera avec le déploiement pilote dans deux villes, Lyon et Montpellier, ainsi qu’à Marseille, déjà priviligiée depuis septembre 2011 et un test terrain réalisé en partenariat avec Nokia Siemens Network, explique IT Espresso. À lire aussiRéseau 4G de SFR : tout sur les forfaits, les lancements et les prixPour autant, le deuxième opérateur français ne compte pas laisser tomber la 3G avec le déploiement de réseaux offrant encore plus de débit. SFR devrait ainsi parvenir à une couverture de 98,5% de la population en 3G+ (norme HSDPA, surf à 3,6 Mbit/s) très bientôt et se concentre sur deux nouveaux objectifs : la généralisation de la technologie HSPA+ (introduite en 2010) offrant un débit crête de 21 Mbit/s et dont l’objectif est de couvrir 88% de la population d’ici la fin 2012, et le déploiement du HSPA+ upgradé à 42 Mbit/s (introduit fin 2011) avec pour objectif 63% de la population couverte avant la fin d’année. En outre, SFR continue de développer son femtocell, un amplificateur 3G à domicile qui en sera à sa troisième génération cet été. Les performances seront doublées avec un débit maximum de 14,4 Mbit/s (contre 7,2 Mbit/s actuellement) et “deux fois plus de communications en simultané” (8 contre 4 actuellement). Enfin, la marque au carré rouge veut faciliter le passage de la 3G au WiFi avec son SFR Auto Connect WiFi, qui permet ce changement “de manière automatique, sans discontinuité ni manipulation”. Pour l’instant réservé aux abonnés disposant d’un téléphone ou d’une tablette Apple, il sera “progressivement lancé sur les autres modèles de terminaux”.

Maladie de Huntington symptômes diagnostic tout savoir sur cette maladie

first_imgMaladie de Huntington : symptômes, diagnostic, tout savoir sur cette maladieCette maladie, parfois appelée chorée de Huntington est une maladie héréditaire et orpheline. Très rare en France, elle se traduit par des troubles psychiatriques et moteurs. Maxisciences vous en dit plusLa maladie de Huntington touche les personnes âgées de 40 à 50 ans et peut plus rarement se manifester sous une forme précoce entre 15 et 25 ans. En France, on retrouve cette maladie chez 5 à 7 personnes pour 100000. 18000 personnes sont concernés dont 12000 encore sans symptômes sont recensés en France selon l’Institut national de la santé et de la recherche médicale (Inserm).  SymptômesLes symptômes sont très différents, d’un individu à l’autre et il faut en moyenne une vingtaine d’années pour que les symptômesmoteurs atteignent le stade le plus avancé. Il existe différents symptômes :Les symptômes cognitifs  Les symptômes cognitifs peuvent être difficiles à diagnostiquer car ils débutent en général de manière progressive. Ils ne se développent pas forcément en même temps que les troubles moteurs. La maladie de Huntington provoque, à long terme, une démence sous-corticale : qui touche la substance blanche, les ganglions de la base, le thalamus et hypothalamus. On peut constater des troubles de la mémoire, un ralentissement de la pensée et des troubles de l’attention.Les symptômes moteursLes malades souffrant de la maladie de Huntington peuvent être atteints de chorée. La chorée est caractérisée par des mouvement incontrôlés et involontaires. Il peuvent affecter toutes les parties du corps mais se calme durant le sommeil. La parole devient hésitante, le patient peut tirer la langue. La survenue de ce trouble peut entraîner des difficultés à se déplacer. Troubles psychiatriques Les troubles psychiatriques sont extrêmement différents d’un patient à l’autre. La dépression, l’anxiété et l’irritabilité ainsi que l’apathie sont les premiers symptômes. Des troubles du sommeil peuvent aussi intervenir. TransmissionÀ lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?La maladie de Huntington est une maladie génétique et héréditaire. Sa transmission est autosomiquedominante, ce qui signifie que les personnes saines ne transmettent pas la maladie, la probabilité pour qu’une personne atteinte transmette le gène est de 50%. DiagnosticLe diagnostic de la maladie de Huntington repose à la fois sur des observations cliniques sur les troubles caractéristiques de la maladie et sur un test génétique. Une analyse du gène de la huntingtine à partir d’un prélèvement sanguin permet de confirmer le diagnostic. Le 5 février 2018 à 13:13 • Morsli Paulinelast_img read more
