Workshops Seek Public Input On Energy Policy Climate Change

first_imgThe province is seeking public input to revise its provincial energy policy and create a greenhouse-gas action plan. Public workshops are scheduled for Monday, Nov. 19, in Yarmouth and Tuesday, Nov. 20, in Digby. Both meetings will run from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. and be chaired by Dalhousie University oceanography professor Bob Fournier. The Yarmouth workshop will be held at the Grand Hotel, 417 Main St. The Digby meeting will be at the Fundy Restaurant, 34 Water St. “The province has set a deadline of 2020 for cutting greenhouse-gas emissions 10 per cent below 1990 levels,” said Jamie Muir, acting Energy Minister. “We’re committed to achieving that goal while maintaining a strong and growing economy.” Mr. Fournier, who recently chaired an environmental assessment of the proposed White’s Point Quarry near Digby, said meeting those goals presents challenges for policy planners. “Our electricity, which is mostly coal-fired, generates about 42 per cent of our greenhouse gases,” said Mr. Fournier. “How do we reduce our use of coal without driving up electricity prices? How do we balance our need for wind power with our ability to provide adequate back-up power? What new technologies or initiatives should we be promoting to meet our green energy needs? “These are challenging questions and we want public input before we generate a policy that is to guide the province for years.” The province has created two documents, Consultation Paper: Nova Scotia’s Renewed Energy Strategy and A Background Paper to Guide Nova Scotia’s Climate Change Action Plan, to help inform public discussion. The first deals with broad energy policy and the second with climate change –- especially action to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions. The documents can be found online at . The province will also accept written submissions on energy strategy and greenhouse-gas reductions until Dec. 12. The workshops are the first two of 12 sessions to be held around the province. Information gathered at the public-consultation sessions will be used to create the energy strategy and the climate action plan, scheduled for release in the spring. Under the Environmental Goals and Sustainable Prosperity Act, Nova Scotia has established a target to have one of the cleanest and most sustainable environments in the world by 2020.last_img read more

No evidence FBI RCMP directed border guards examination of Meng Wanzhou Crown

first_imgVANCOUVER — A Crown prosecutor says there’s no evidence to support a “conspiracy” theory that United States officials directed Canadian border guards to interrogate Huawei Technologies executive Meng Wanzhou at Vancouver’s airport.Defence lawyers argue that the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the RCMP and Canada Border Services Agency conspired to obtain information from Meng during an admissibility exam in order to advance a criminal case against her in the U.S.The U.S. is seeking her extradition on fraud charges linked to the alleged violation of sanctions against Iran and she was arrested while passing through the Vancouver International Airport on Dec. 1, 2018.Canadian border guards questioned her about Huawei’s business in Iran and seized her electronic devices before the RCMP executed a provisional arrest warrant, but the Crown says the CBSA must assess all travellers entering Canada.John Gibb-Carsley, representing the Attorney General of Canada, told a British Columbia Supreme Court judge today that there’s no evidence the FBI or RCMP ordered border guards to conduct the exam or provided questions to them.Meng, whose arrest sparked a diplomatic crisis between Canada and China, denies wrongdoing and her lawyers are in court seeking further documents ahead of her extradition trial in January.This report by The Canadian Press was first published Oct. 2, 2019.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Casablanca to Build 100 Public Restrooms for over MAD 50 Million

Rabat – Casablanca, Morocco’s economic center and most populated city will soon get its first public restrooms, albeit only 100.With a population of 3.36 million, Casablanca will have just one public restroom for over 30,000 people.Casa Amenagement SA, a road construction company in Casablanca, has pledged to construct the public restrooms at a cost of over MAD 50 million. The company is expected to start construction in the coming weeks.Read Also: Casablanca’s Sidi Moumen Cultural Centers Give Opportunity for CommunityA study by the National School of Commerce and Management, based on interviews with Moroccans, found that women are the most likely to use public restrooms in the country. Ninety-one percent of women surveyed expressed their frequent need to use public restrooms, compared to 80 percent of male interviewees.Without public restrooms, many people use toilets in public spaces, such as stores, shopping centers, cafes, or road stations. Some even tend to urinate in public.Locals and visitors alike have also complained about the lack of hygienic restrooms in Casablanca’s suburbs. Poor sanitation in public restrooms is a threat to public health because it is linked to the transmission of diseases such as hepatitis A, cholera, and diarrhea. read more

Bans discussions with Rwandan leader on UN rights report to continue

9 September 2010Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon announced today that he will continue discussions with Rwanda’s President on a soon-to-be released United Nations report on serious human rights violations committed in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Mr. Ban wrapped up a two-day visit to Kigali yesterday, during which he met with President Paul Kagame, Foreign Minister Louise Mushikiwabo and other senior officials to discuss Rwanda’s concerns over the report.Prepared by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), the mapping report is scheduled to be released on 1 October and will describe more than 600 incidents in the DRC during the period between 1993 and 2003, in which tens of thousands of people were killed.Covering not only the war-torn east but the entire territory of the DRC, it has the overarching objective of helping the Congolese Government to establish transitional judicial systems and fight against impunity.“We discussed the matter in great detail,” the Secretary-General told reporters in New York today about his talks with Rwandan officials.“I listened very carefully to their concerns,” he added. “I fully understand and appreciate the depth of their feelings on this matter.”Mr. Ban said that dialogue with Mr. Kagame will continue next week when he visits New York, where the Rwandan leader will co-chair a meeting of the high-level Advocacy Group to spur action on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the eight globally-agreed upon anti-poverty targets with a 2015 deadline.The Group includes well-known figures such as Nobel Peace Prize laureates Muhammad Yunus and Wangari Maathai, as well as former Chilean president Michelle Bachelet and entrepreneur and philanthropist Bill Gates.The Secretary-General said today that he encouraged Mr. Kagame and the Rwandan Government, as well as all concerned countries, to submit their comments on the report by the end of this month, as requested by High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay.The comments will be released together with the final version of the report.While in Kigali, “I also strongly praised Rwanda’s commitment to the United Nations and in particular its role in peacekeeping operations,” Mr. Ban said.“Rwandan forces are well trained and continue to make important contributions to peace and security in the region,” he stressed. “Many Rwandan soldiers have given their lives while serving the cause of peace, and I honour their memory.”The country’s contribution to peacekeeping is especially important in light of the two referenda set to be held in Sudan at the start of next year.“We need to do more to protect the civilian population – not least women and children,” the Secretary-General said, noting that he and Mr. Kagame are in agreement that it is very important for Rwanda to continue its role in peacekeeping operations. read more

New UN crisis centre launched to combat spread of bird flu and

Rapid response specialists will be on deck around the clock seven days a week to fight bird flu outbreaks and other major animal health or food health-related emergencies anywhere in the world at a new Crisis Management Centre (CMC) launched by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) today.“One of the lessons FAO has learned in three years of leading the international fight against Avian Influenza is that speed is of the essence,” FAO Director-General Jacques Diouf said at the CMC’s inauguration at the Agency’s Rome headquarters. “Alert must be lightning-quick. Reaction must be immediate in combating a disease which can move across borders and continents terrifyingly fast.”Set up in collaboration with the Paris-based World Organization for Animal Health (OIE), the Centre brings rapid-response capacity to transboundary animal and plant diseases, and can also react quickly to emergencies involving plant pests or food safety.Supported by advanced communications technology and operating with a staff of up to 15 specialists and veterinarians who continuously monitor and update disease information from around the globe, the CMC can dispatch its experts to any hotspot in the world in under 48 hours of a suspected outbreak. “The CMC represents a significant leap forward in FAO’s ability to help Member Nations prevent and cope with disease outbreaks,” Mr Diouf said. “Three years into the Avian Influenza crisis, FAO and the international community can draw some satisfaction, and some relief, in the progress made to contain a most deadly menace to the health of animals and humans across the globe.“But despite the encouraging and very real progress made, it does not mean we can lower our guard. Only when H5N1 (the bird flu virus) has been totally eradicated will the Sword of Damocles, or more pessimistically the time-bomb, of a human pandemic be removed,” he warned.Experts fear H5N1 could mutate, gaining the ability to pass from person to person and, in a worst case scenario, unleashing a deadly human pandemic similar to the so-called Spanish flu outbreak of 1918 that is estimated to have killed from 20 million to 40 million people worldwide by the time it had run its course two years later. Mr. Diouf noted that although the disease remains a potent threat in Indonesia and Africa, and Eastern Europe and the Caucasus are still vulnerable, the situation has improved elsewhere.The CMC is headed by former Chief Veterinary Officer of Germany Karin Schwabenbauer. read more

Oilpatch workers want countrys energy sector retooled

Oilpatch workers want country’s energy sector retooled by Crystal Laderas Posted Nov 1, 2016 12:48 pm MDT Iron & Earth|Matthew Linnit|Oilsands|Workers’ Climate Plan Oilpatch workers don’t want to be left without a job as Canada diversifies its economy.“Iron & Earth” is led by oilsands employees who developed the “Workers’ Climate Plan”, which calls for federal funding to help train people for jobs in the renewable energy sector.Spokesperson Matthew Linnit said the group recognizes the growing potential of the sector.“Studies have shown [there will be] 144,000 jobs available in the next 10 years for renewable energy in Canada,” he stated. “We would like to see the government take initiative to make sure those jobs don’t end up in the hands of temporary foreign workers.”He suggested workers such as welders have directly transferable skills for positions in renewable energy, but many other Red Seal trades would need upgrading.

Skype 40 for Linux now available

first_imgAnyone who uses Skype on Linux will be happy to hear that a new version has been made available today, bringing with it a host of essential updates and new features.Skype 4.0, codenamed “Four Rooms for Improvement,” is long overdue, and Marco Cimmino makes a point of thanking Linux users for their patience on the Skype blog. The wait seems to have been worth it, though.The main improvements Skype is delivering include much improved audio call quality, better video support, and improved chat synchronization. For video specifically, Skype has spent time implementing support for a much wider range of webcams, so if your camera didn’t work before today you might be surprised to find it does in Skype 4.0.Visually, Skype has received a new Conversations View, which brings all chats into a single, unified window (you can revert to the old view if you prefer). There’s also a new Call View, presence and emoticons have been redesigned, and you can now store and view numbers within each Skype profile.Most importantly of all, Skype believes they’ve managed to get the software on a par with other versions in terms of features. They also promise far fewer crashes or freezes, which you really don’t want to see happen during a call or chat.If you do decide to perform an upgrade, don’t be surprised if the first time you run Skype 4.0 the application is really slow. Apparently this is to be expected and if you let it settle for a few minutes you should have no more issues and performance will return to an acceptable level.Skype for Linux is available to download now, and it will run on most systems as the software only requires a 1GHz processor, 256MB RAM, and 100MB of hard drive space.Read more at the Skype bloglast_img read more

49 Voices Merridy Littell of Anchorage

first_imgMerridy Littell of Anchorage (Photo by Wesley Early, Alaska Public Media – Anchorage)This week we’re hearing from Merridy Littell in Anchorage. Littell is nine years old and originally from Seattle. She’s organizing a children’s bike race on July 15th.Listen nowLITTELL: It’s a fundraiser for Not On Tobacco, an organization that helps teens quit smoking. And instead of racing other kids, kids will bike loops and blow up a balloon at the end of each lap to signify healthy lungs. The big accomplishment is helping our earth and the people on it by helping them not smoke and quit smoking if they want to.I’d say that I really love being outdoors. That’s like my job, as being a kid, is being outdoors.If it was a weekday, I’d go to camp. It’s an outdoor camp, so we play a lot of games and each week has a different theme for different age groups. You can sign up for different themes. And you go on field trips and learn about that theme. Say it was earth, fire and ice… You’d learn about the Earth and glaciers.I’m at Trailside discovery camp, the camp I talked about earlier, and I’m reading to the little kids in the building. And one of the little kids gets a hold of the bear spray, uncaps it and sprays it in the room, accidentally. So, we have to evacuate the building and go outside. That was just a small enclosed room, and it’s painful – I mean painful. Now I get how the bears feel.last_img read more

Pakistan court issues arrest warrant for exPM Sharif

first_imgNawaz SharifA Pakistani court on Thursday issued arrest warrants for ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif, piling more pressure on his ruling party as it seeks a way forward ahead of next year’s general election.Sharif’s defence lawyer Zafir Khan told AFP that Pakistan’s accountability court issued bailable warrants for the former leader in two cases of alleged corruption on Thursday.In late July the Supreme Court made Sharif the 15th premier in Pakistan’s 70-year history to be ousted before completing a full term, after a corruption investigation against him.It also barred him from holding political office, effectively taking him out of the running ahead of general elections due to be held by the end of 2018. Some analysts have already warned the party could lose seats in the vote.The claims against the prime minister stemmed from the Panama Papers leak last year, which sparked a media frenzy over the luxurious lifestyles and high-end London property portfolio owned by his family.Sharif had been due to return to Pakistan from London, where his wife Kalsum is undergoing cancer treatment, but instead flew to Jeddah in Saudi Arabia several days ago, according to local media.He has not returned to Pakistan since he was indicted in the corruption allegations earlier this month, despite reports he would do so.The next hearing is scheduled for 3 November, his lawyer Zafir Khan said.Sharif’s eponymous ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has doggedly stuck behind their leader since he was ousted by the Supreme Court in July.But as the legal pressure builds cracks are beginning to appear in their unity, with some members calling for his younger brother Shahbaz, chief minister of the Sharif family’s powerbase of Punjab province, to take control of the party.Federal minister for inter-provincial coordination Riaz Pirzada became the most high profile voice of dissent when he called last week for Shahbaz to take over.”We don’t object to Nawaz’s leadership but we are concerned how the party will win the next elections,” Pirzada told Pakistan broadcaster Geo News earlier this week.         – Question of Punjab -In the days after his ouster Sharif swiftly named a replacement, current prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, and designated Shahbaz his eventual successor.However, there has been no move towards securing a federal seat for the chief provincial minister, which would allow him to take over the premiership and secure the Sharif dynasty.Such a move would then open up elections for the leadership of Punjab, which some observers have suggested the party cannot afford to risk, despite its influence there.Pakistan’s most populous and wealthiest province, Punjab and the parliamentary seats it can deliver are seen as vital to the PML-N’s grip on power.Instead Sharif fielded his wife Kalsum in a by-election to fill his old seat in Lahore in September.She won the vote, seen as a key test of the PML-N’s popularity after Sharif’s ousting and ahead of the election, but the party’s soul-searching continues as the debate over its leadership spills into local media.”There is a very visible split in the party, which has clearly been divided into two groups” behind each brother, political analyst Rasul Bukhsh Raees told AFP.Nawaz Sharif has faced — and come back from — similar challenges in the past.In 1993 he was sacked from his first term as premier for corruption, while in 1999 he was sentenced to life in prison after his second term in office ended with a military putsch.Following the coup he was allowed to go into exile in Saudi Arabia, returning in 2007 before becoming prime minister for a third time in 2013.Analysts have said his chances of a third comeback may depend on his ability to convince voters he is a victim of an unjust campaign by the powerful military to undermine him.last_img read more

World Premiere of Darin Atwaters So Many Stars – Concerto for Soulful

first_imgThe Hippodrome Foundation recently announced the world premiere performance of acclaimed composer and conductor Darin Atwater’s latest original work, So Many Stars – a Concerto for Soulful Symphony, 8 p.m., May 3 at the France-Merrick Performing Arts Center of the Hippodrome Theatre.Atwater references the famous Concerto for Orchestra by Bela Bartok as a framework for his latest composition, while using the signature themes that run throughout his symphonies to make this a truly American work. This is the largest piece Atwater has composed since partnering with the Hippodrome Foundation, the non-profit partner of the Hippodrome Theatre, in 2010, making Soulful Symphony the first resident ensemble at the France-Merrick Performing Arts Center. Atwater’s growing library of symphonic orchestrations continues to garner national attention; Creative Artists Agency (CAA) the world’s largest talent agency, has just announced they will be representing Atwater.The concert will feature a special guest appearance by singer Ruben Studdard, who released his sixth studio album, “Unconditional Love” earlier this year. Studdard, a longtime admirer of Atwater’s work says, “I am excited to have the opportunity to work with Soulful Symphony. It is every singer’s dream to have the opportunity to sing with a symphony orchestra.”Some of Baltimore’s rising stars will also have a chance to shine during the concert. Students from Lansdowne High School chorus will perform songs they having been working on under the guidance of Soulful Symphony musicians throughout the school year. Atwater and Soulful Symphony musicians have worked directly with HFI to help Baltimore students develop musical knowledge and appreciation as well as life goals through HFI’s Hipp Artist in Residence Program. HFI’s Hipp Artist in Residence Program is one of the foundation’s signature programs, along with Camp Hippodrome, and regular master classes.Proceeds from the concert will benefit HFI’s education and outreach programs. Individual concert tickets range from $25 to $250 and can be purchased at (410-547-SEAT) or at the Hippodrome Box Office 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday – Friday. Groups of 10 or more people can save 20 percent by calling 443-703-2401.last_img read more
