Some Americans say friendly ties with Canada will persist despite Trump tiradesSome Americans say friendly ties with Canada will persist despite Trump tirades

first_imgMONTREAL – U.S. President Donald Trump’s sharp comments against Canada over trade are just a blip in an otherwise unbreakable, long-standing friendship, say some Americans living in the northeastern part of the country near the Canadian border.“In the long term, what we have in common as North Americans will ensure we overcome this period,” says John Tousignant, executive director of the Franco-American Centre, based in New Hampshire.Trump embarked on a post-G7 Twitter tirade on the weekend against Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, calling him “dishonest” and “weak” in the escalating battle over trade tariffs.The president’s surrogates also piled on during Sunday U.S. news shows, with Trump trade adviser Peter Navarro saying there was “a special place in hell” for Trudeau.Navarro apologized Tuesday.The jabs left a bitter taste with Phyllis Klein, owner of a marina on Lake Champlain in upstate New York, where about half the clientele are Quebecers.“I feel that it’s certainly detrimental to U.S.-Canadian relations to have this kind of rhetoric out there,” said Klein, who will soon turn 80.Klein, who has operated her business for 38 years, says she she believes Canadians understand the difference between political rhetoric and the opinions of everyday Americans.“I find it difficult to try to apologize for words that come from the mouths of people in our government, so I don’t even try,” she said.“Because they know that the words that are coming out of the president of the United States’ mouth are not necessarily the feelings of those of us who value our relationships with our neighbours to the north.”In Vermont, where Trump is particularly unpopular, a few choice words from the president won’t keep people away from a popular weekend getaway on either side of the border, says one keen observer.“There is a large influx both ways of people visiting,” said Aki Soga, reader engagement editor for the Burlington Free Press. “Vermonters visit Canada, Canadians visit Vermont.”From a big-picture perspective, there are concerns about how the rest of the world sees the United States globally, he added. But as long as tariffs don’t directly have an effect on jobs in the state, the president’s words shouldn’t have a major impact, Soga said.“I think the first-hand interaction is likely to be a stronger factor than anything the president says,” he said. “If it goes on for a while — and it would have to go on for a while — people might change their views, but I don’t think this one incident is likely to have that effect.”Many social media users echoed that sentiment Monday, when the hashtag #ThanksCanada was trending on Twitter, celebrating Canadian contributions while pushing back against Trump’s comments.In New Hampshire, which counts Quebec as its largest trading partner and where nearly a quarter of the population has French-Canadian roots, Tousignant doesn’t believe a few undiplomatic words will do much to sour relations between “cousins.”“In the short term, we quarrel from time to time and certainly this is one of those quarrelsome moments,” Tousignant said, recalling that Pierre Elliott Trudeau, the current prime minister’s late father, had his own issues in 1971 with then-president Richard Nixon, who famously referred to the elder Trudeau as an “asshole.”Upon learning of the insult by Nixon, Trudeau replied: “I’ve been called worse things by better people.”That slight was a temporary issue and Tousignant believes this will be too.“If we spend more of our time focusing on the positives we share as North Americans, we’ll get past this short-term issue,” he said.Klein said tensions are normal in any relationship, but eventually the frostiness subsides.“Take any husband and wife, who are trying to learn to live together and raise a family, you’re going to have tensions, but usually we overcome them,” Klein said. “I don’t see this as anything different.”last_img read more

The darkly comedic story about a group of friends cleaning up the scene of a suicide the night before one of them gets married built up a cult following in the Toronto indie theatre scene.But in 2014, Blood Ties got a major boost in exposure when it was picked up as part of a subplot in Season 2 of Orphan Black, the Tatiana Maslany-led sci-fi clone drama co-produced by BBC America and Bell Media. Maslany’s suburban mom clone, Alison Hendrix, plays the lead role in her community theatre musical (you can see Johnston as one of the chorus members). Facebook Login/Register With: It’s rare for a theatrical show to have a television debut before its finalized stage premiere, but in Canadian musical theatre the path to production is its own kind of beast.When Barbara Johnston and Anika Johnson graduated from Ryerson Theatre School in 2009, their final performance was a workshop of a new musical they were writing together: Blood Ties was based on a true story about Johnston’s parents, who had to clean up the aftermath of a family member’s suicide. The collaborators turned it into a musical tragicomedy.“As we were writing the show we talked to them a lot. . . . All these horrible details,” Johnston said. “I just thought it was this insane story that combined the kind of drama and bizarre comedy with sorrow underneath the surface that we thought would make something very exciting.” Twitterlast_img read more

CBI arrests senior AAI officer while taking bribeCBI arrests senior AAI officer while taking bribe

first_imgNew Delhi: The CBI has arrested an executive director in the Airports Authority of India for allegedly accepting a bribe of Rs 2 lakh from the owner of an airports ground handling company, officials said on Wednesday.G Ravichandran, Executive Director (Finance), had allegedly demanded a bribe of Rs 4 lakh for allotting tenders to the company – Bright Shine Services (BSS) – for ‘D’ category airports, they said. Speaking to Millennium Post, officials said that CBI is conducting searches at official and private residences of the accused in Delhi and Chennai. They added that these searches have resulted in the recovery of some incriminating documents and investigation is going on. An official investigating the case said that V. Venkatesh, CEO of BSS informed about Ravichandran to the country’s premier investigative agency after the accused came to Chennai on March 13 to demand a bribe for allotting the tender to his company. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’Venkatesh, in a letter to CBI, said that he did not want to pay the bribe and further requested for legal action against him. Following this, CBI sleuths managed to arrange a meeting between the two on March 17 in the presence of an independent witness. This meeting in Delhi was recorded and revealed that Ravichandran gave assurances to Venkatesh about awarding his company the tender. During a second meeting on March 19, Ravichandran is heard asking for Rs 10 lakh bribe per airport. Subsequently, Ravichandran demanded Rs 4 lakh to be paid as advance the next day, when CBI caught him and charged him u/s 7 of the PC Act.last_img read more

Morocco Reiterates in Paris Support for France’s Middle East Peace InitiativeMorocco Reiterates in Paris Support for France’s Middle East Peace Initiative

Paris – Foreign minister, Salaheddine Mezouar, reiterated, on Sunday in Paris, Morocco’s support for France’s Middle East Peace Initiative.“Morocco has from the beginning supported the French initiative which was the only one on the table,” Mezouar told MAP on the sidelines of his participation in the international conference for peace in the Middle East, held in Paris, adding that after the failure of the negotiations in April 2014, there was a vacuum that was seized by Israel to pursue its policy of colonization and continue to repress the Palestinian people.The Paris conference comes at an important moment, especially after the adoption by the UN Security Council of a resolution condemning Israeli colonization, he said, noting that the presence of more than 70 countries in this meeting is a strong message from the international community, testifying to its commitment to resolving this long-standing dispute. He also warned against the current situation which cannot last and which could lead to an explosion in the region. “Time is ripe to establish a sincere dialogue for the solution of two states living side by side in peace,” he said, calling for compliance with the commitments made within the framework of UN resolutions.Mezouar also highlighted the strong commitment of King Mohammed VI, Chairman of the Al-Quds Committee, to the Palestinian cause, noting that this commitment is also reflected in the role of Morocco as member of the Arab Quartet. read more

No BC charges in Mount Polley dam collapse as federal investigations continueNo BC charges in Mount Polley dam collapse as federal investigations continue

VANCOUVER — There will be no provincial charges into a tailings dam collapse in British Columbia but the province’s new environment minister says a mining company may still be held responsible through federal laws.George Heyman says the August 2014 disaster has had tremendous economic and environmental consequences and British Columbians deserve to know what went wrong at the Mount Polley mine near Williams Lake.A three-year deadline on charges will pass Friday in the midst of an ongoing investigation and the head of the B.C. Conservation Officer Service says he doesn’t know when the probe will be completed.Chris Doyle says the federal departments of Environment and Fisheries and Oceans Canada are part of an ongoing integrated investigation into the spill.Doyle says the evidence collected to date under the provincial Emergency Management Act and the federal Fisheries Act will be considered by the Public Prosecution Service of Canada should charges be recommended.The Mount Polley dam breached at the gold and copper mine, sending 24 million cubic meters of mine waste and sludge into nearby waterways.Two reports found the collapse at the mine operated by Imperial Metals Corp. (TSX:III) was caused by a poorly designed dam that didn’t account for drainage and erosion failures.—- read more

Kosovos expremier faces charges of murder rape and other war crimes atKosovos expremier faces charges of murder rape and other war crimes at

The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), which sits in The Hague, today released the details of the indictment against Mr. Haradinaj, who voluntarily surrendered to the ICTY earlier this week after resigning as Prime Minister.In a statement the ICTY said Mr. Haradinaj, 36, faces 17 counts of crimes against humanity and 20 counts of war crimes, all connected to his role as a commander of the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) in the Dukagjin area. The charges, which cover the period between March and September 1998, include murder, rape, the deportation of civilians, unlawful detention, harassment and the destruction of property.Mr. Haradinaj, an ethnic Albanian, has been indicted alongside two of his subordinates, Idriz Balaj and Lahi Brahimaj. Those two men each face 16 counts of crimes against humanity and 19 counts of war crimes.The indictment alleges that the three men formed a “joint criminal enterprise” in early 1998 to consolidate the KLA’s total control over the Dukagjin area by attacking, persecuting and forcibly removing Serb civilians and by violently suppressing “any real or perceived form of collaboration with the Serbs by Albanian or Roma civilians.”While they may not have physically committed every crime for which they are charged, the indictment states, they are still considered criminally responsible for planning, instigating, ordering or aiding and abetting their commission.Mr. Haradinaj “established a system whereby individuals were targeted for abduction, mistreatment and murder, and whereby a systematic attack on vulnerable sections of the civilian population was carried out.” He “personally ordered, controlled and participated in beatings of persons” and gave tacit approval “on at least one occasion” for detained persons to be executed.The UN Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UMIK) has been in place in Kosovo since June 1999 when the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) drove Yugoslav troops out of the province amid grave human rights abuses in fighting between ethnic Albanians and ethnic Serbs. read more

Newmont reaches golden milestone at Merian in SurinameNewmont reaches golden milestone at Merian in Suriname

first_imgNewmont Suriname has reached 1 Moz of gold poured at the Merian gold mine in east Suriname, two years after commercial production began on October 1, 2016.Merian was built safely, on time and approximately 20% below budget, with total development capital of $525 million invested by Newmont. Staatsolie, on behalf of the Government of Suriname, owns 25% of the operation. It is 60 km south of Moengo and predominantly in the Pamakan area, about 15 km west of the Marowijne River.In 2018, the second phase of the Merian project was also completed safely, on time and within budget with the construction of a primary crusher to process harder ores that will be recovered, as the mine gets deeper.Based on current gold reserves, Newmont Suriname projects a mine life of approximately 15 years for Merian. The company is also conducting exploration activities at Sabajo and in north and south Amazonia, which could further expand and extend production in Suriname.In August 2016, Newmont established the Pamaka Community Development Foundation (CDF) to implement development projects in the Pamaka area. In support of the foundation, Newmont Suriname voluntarily contributes $1/oz sold. The board of directors of the CDF consists of two representatives of the Pamaka community, two Newmont representatives and two from the government.Merian is due to produce between 485,000 and 540,000 oz of gold this year at all-in sustaining costs of $580-630/oz.last_img read more

Des macaques pillent un village de ThaïlandeDes macaques pillent un village de Thaïlande

first_imgDes macaques pillent un village de ThaïlandeDans un village thaïlandais, les habitants sont quotidiennement victimes de pillages de nourriture perpétrés par des macaques sauvages qu’ils ne parviennent pas à arrêter.Dans le village de KhlongCharoenWai, à moins de 100 km de Bangkok en Thaïlande, les pillages sont quotidiens. Les coupables ? Des milliers de macaques sauvages, en quête de nourriture. Suite à la destruction de leur habitat, les singes extrêmement voraces ont pris pour habitude rentrer dans les maisons dès que les humains tournent le dos afin de dérober tout ce qui passe.”Ils se faufilent dans la maison quand ils voient que je dors. Ils vont dans la cuisine, prennent l’huile de cuisson, le sucre, et même les médicaments que je cache dans le placard”, déclare à l’AFP ChaluayKhamkajit, habitante du village de KhlongCharoenWai, sur la côte est de la Thaïlande.Cela fait une dizaine d’années que les raids ont lieu dans ce village. Et les singes volent non seulement de la nourriture, mais aussi des médicaments, et renversent tout dans la maison.Le chef du village, ChatreeKaencharoen, raconte : “ils ont poussé une télévision de 21 pouces, qui est tombée et s’est brisée. Ils ont même volé un cuiseur à riz, ont réussi à l’ouvrir et l’ont vidé pour manger le riz”.Les villageois tentent pourtant de trouver des solutions. Bloquer les portes du frigo et des placards, lancer des pierres, voire même s’armer d’un lance-pierre, placer un chien dans le jardin, rien n’y fait.Certains des foyers entourent même leur maison de filets. Fermer les fenêtres est aussi un moyen, mais avec la chaleur tropicale qui règne là-bas, c’est assez difficile.”Parfois, des centaines de singes arrivent en même temps, surtout à l’aube et au crépuscule, quand il fait moins chaud. Ils savent que c’est l’heure du repas”, raconte le chef du village.DéforestationLa faute de ces pillages quotidiens incombe à la destruction de la mangrove, leur habitat naturel. Habituellement, les macaques crabiers, espèce omnivore, se régalent des nombreux fruits, crustacés et racines qu’offrent ces forêts tropicales. Sauf qu’entre 1973 et 2009, la Thaïlande a perdu 43% de ses zones boisées. La mangrove a été remplacée par des élevages de crevettes, source de revenus et de nourriture pour la communauté locale.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Les macaques “pouvaient trouver à manger facilement par le passé. Mais quand il y a moins de forêts, ils vont chercher à manger dans les maisons”, explique ChatreeKaencharoen.Pour l’association WWF, la faute est entièrement celle des humains. “Les gens se sont rapprochés de la nature, c’est pour ça qu’il y a plus de chances d’interactions entre les humains et les animaux”, souligne PetchManopawitr, responsable de l’ONG en Thaïlande.”Comme les humains, les macaques peuvent adapter leur comportement assez facilement. Et quand ils savent qu’ils peuvent trouver de la nourriture dans le village, ils viennent”, continue-t-il.Et la situation n’est pas près de s’améliorer, la WWF estime que le tiers des forêts de la région du Grand Mékong (Thaïlande, Laos, Cambodge, Vietnam, Birmanie) serait voué à disparaître d’ici 20 ans.Les autorités locales ont bien tenté d’endiguer le phénomène en stérilisant quelques individus. Mais à trop petite échelle pour avoir un réel impact sur la population de macaques. “On ne peut pas les stopper”, désespère l’adjoint au chef du village, TawinSongchaoren.Le 29 août 2013 à 19:50 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Dr Chris Amann had relationship with former WWE star WWE blocking ROHDr Chris Amann had relationship with former WWE star WWE blocking ROH

first_imgFacebook Pinterest WhatsApp Live Podcast: Reviewing and discussing WWE Clash of Champions from Charlotte Twitter David Bixenspan over at is featuring an article revealing that a number of motions were filed by WWE physician Dr. Chris Amann in his lawsuit against CM Punk and Colt Cabana, with the intent being Amann didn’t want specific things brought up.One motion that was not specifically sealed according to the article was Amann’s third motion that argued the defense could not reference his “romantic and sexual relationship” with former WWE star Jillian Hall (Jillian Faye Hall).The relationship was never brought up during the trial. Hall confirmed the relationship with Deadspin before the article went public, noting it took place while he was the traveling physician as part of the Monday Night RAW crew.The article further references why this is considered a violation of the code of ethics involving physicians and patients.“NYU medical ethics professor Arthur Caplan told Deadspin that such a relationship would be obviously out of line for a physician. “It’s a huge ethics no-no,” he said. “You cannot have romantic relationships with your patients. There are a number of reasons why: First, it distorts your objectivity in terms of treating them. They can bamboozle you, or you can feel like ‘I wanna please them, so I’ll give them more pain meds,’ or whatever they’re asking for. Second, they have enough problems working with wrestlers because they have what we call dual loyalties.”WWE blocking ROH at MSGWWE is reportedly doing all they can to block Ring of Honor’s attempt to book Madison Square Garden for an event next year according to a report by Dave Meltzer.As reported earlier this week, an article by the Baltimore Business Journal revealed that ROH has plans to book the world’s most famous arena in New York City in 2019. Sinclair Broadcast Group CEO Chris Ripley is quoted in the interview noting the upgrade in production value for ROH over the last year and plans moving forward.center_img WWE Clash of Champions Results – 9/15/19 (Rollins vs. Strowman, Kingston vs. Orton) Google+ Adam Martin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Wrestleview Live #65: Reviewing and discussing WWE Clash of Champions from Charlotte last_img read more

Designing a test of neutrinos as dark matter candidatesDesigning a test of neutrinos as dark matter candidates

first_img Dark inflation opens up a gravitational window on the first moments after the Big Bang A model that could see testing at the LHC is one developed by Anupam Mazumdar, a scientist at the Lancaster University in the United Kingdom and his colleagues Rouzbeh Allahverdi, at the University of New Mexico in the United States, and Bhaskar Dutta, at Texas A&M University. Their model shows how inflation generates the “seed for structure,” and describes how cold dark matter accounts for “missing” matter in the universe. Thirdly, the model’s inflation explains neutrino masses. The results of the paper can be found in “Unifying Inflation and Dark Matter with Neutrino Masses” in Physical Review Letters.“We know dark matter has to exist,” Mazumdar tells “We see its influences. But it has to interact really weakly with the rest of the universe. This is why the right-handed supersymmetric neutrinos – sneutrinos – are a dark matter candidate. The right handed sneutrinos also give rise to tiny neutrino masses observed in nature.”Mazumdar also explains that the universe is expanding: “It undergoes inflation.” So Mazumdar and his peers wondered if it was possible to tie inflation to dark matter and neutrino masses. “We wanted to see if we could tie these things together in a model that can be tested in a laboratory.”Part of the challenge involved in putting together their model included the fact that in most standard models that address this question, the inflaton field values are entered by hand. Inflatons are characterized by integer spin. “We had to figure out how to talk about an inflaton as a scalar particle and try to identify what an inflaton is, exactly,” Mazumdar says.He goes on to explain that no single particle acts like an inflaton. Instead, a combination of particles is needed. “When we combined an sneutrino, a standard Higgs particle and a supersymmetric lepton, we found they act like an inflaton whose masses and couplings are not ad-hoc but well motivated and constrained by the current experimental limits.” “The model shows that the inflaton which is responsible for inflating is also responsible for neutrino masses….This component could also act like dark matter,” Mazumdar continues. “Now it is something that can be verified in experiments. Once the properties of the supersymmetric neutrino are found, the testable properties can help us identify dark matter.”“We are always looking for evidence to back up observation,” Mazumdar points out. “Until now, finding ‘missing’ matter has relied on cosmic microwave background experiments. It was thought that inflation could only be tested by this method. Now we have proposed a simple model that would allow inflation testing on earth.”Mazumdar hopes that the model he and his peers have developed can be tested at the LHC by the end of this year or the beginning of next year. “This could answer the questions of why neutrinos have such small mass, and whether they would make a good dark matter candidate and the inflaton candidate.”Copyright 2007 All rights reserved.

Summer days happy platesSummer days happy plates

first_imgDoesn’t matter how much it rains, the heat and the humidity in the Capital always returns with a vengeance. After a relatively cool Saturday, Sunday was just that as we headed over to Shangri-La Eros Hotel’s Cafe Uno for a lazy brunch. The one adjective every one can easily associate with brunches is – laziness. The whole process of reaching the venue, choosing your dishes and your drinks must be done with complete disregard for time and haste. Otherwise, be rest assured, all a lavish lunch will be is a hurried lunch. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’We took a walk around guided by sous chef Abhinandan Singh as we started off with smoked salmon, prawns, lobster, blackforest ham, salami and yes some very good sushi. All of this to go with the champagne. The coolest thing on offer, besides the cold cuts of course, is a live chaat counter right inside the cafe. So take your pick of gol gappas, raj kachoris and papri chaats if that is what you are craving on a weekend afternoon. And since gol gappas were on offer, could we possibly say no!? The cafe also has various flavours of lassi and chaanch, besides juice, to go with the Indian dishes. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixIf you the kinds to steer clear off such quirks for a brunch, there is a pasta station and a pizza oven ready for you to customize the dishes to your taste. Cafe Uno offers an interesting mix of continental dishes along with Indian dishes when it comes to the heavier meals. Right from the Hungarian Goulash to the garlic mashed potatoes (topped off with bacon bits -heaven!), jacket potatoes, butter steamed vegetables and a grill where you can pick from prawns, fish and your meats to be cooked to your taste with your choice of sauce. The Indian spread has your papads, dal, paneer, mutton kofta, mutton raan, Hyderabadi fish kebabs and a lot more – clearly they intend to spoil you with options! For dessert they had a wonderful spread of ice creams and some exquisite pastries and you could also get pancakes or waffles made if you want. And yes – the fruits. Somehow for us fresh fruits trump most desserts so we were more than happy with our colourful plates. Rounding it all off with a cup of Darjeeling tea, office work was the last thing on our minds but well then! The cafe serves their brunch from noon to 3:30 pm and here are the rates – Rs 3, 200 plus taxes per person with unlimited champagne, Rs 2, 500 plus taxes per person with unlimited soft beverages and Rs1, 500 plus taxes for the kids buffet.

Rendering courtesy of Stantec. March 10, 2015 — New clinical-trial findings provide further evidence that combining chemotherapy with radiation therapy is the best treatment for people with a low-grade form of brain cancer.The findings come from a phase II study co-led by a researcher at Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James) and researchers at the University of Maryland and at London Regional Cancer Program in Ontario, Canada.The study shows that patients with low-grade gliomas and at high risk for tumor recurrence have an overall survival of 73 percent after three years when treated with radiation plus temozolomide, a chemotherapy drug. This is compared with a three-year survival of 54 percent for historical controls treated with radiation alone.The findings are published in the International Journal of Radiation Oncology, Biology, Physics.“The most effective treatment for these rare tumors is currently controversial at best,” said Arnab Chakravarti, M.D., chair and professor of radiation oncology and co-director of the Brain Tumor Program at the OSUCCC – James. Chakravarti is the trial’s translational research national study chair.“Many of these high-risk low-grade gliomas progress to grade III and IV tumors over time, so identifying the best treatment strategy is critical to ensure that patients have the best outcomes,” said Chakravarti, who is also the Max Morehouse Chair in Cancer Research at Ohio State.“Our study reports that combining radiation with temozolomide-based chemotherapy appears to improve clinical outcome compared to historical controls treated by radiation alone. This may prove critical in killing enough tumor cells to prevent progression to stage IV disease, or glioblastoma multiforme, over time.”Low-grade gliomas represent less than 1 percent of all human tumors in the United States. The average survival times vary depending on the tumor’s structural, molecular and genetic features. (One form of high-risk low-grade glioma has an average overall survival of about 5 years.)The study’s key technical findings include:The three-year progression-free survival rate was 59 percent.Grade 3 adverse events occurred in 43 percent of patients; grade 4 events occurred in 10 percent of patients.
