Native Womens Association felt betrayed by Conservative government

first_imgAPTN National NewsOTTAWA-The Native Women’s Association of Canada felt “betrayed” by the Conservative government’s announcement on missing and murdered Aboriginal women, APTN National News has been told.Status of Women Minister Rona Ambrose made the $10 million announcement on a national strategy to deal with the issue on Oct. 29 in Vancouver.Almost half of the money, $4 million, is going to the RCMP’s Canadian Police Centre for Missing and Exploited Children which will create a branch focused on missing persons and unidentified remains with no special emphasis on Aboriginal women.The Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC) was not informed ahead of time about the contents of the announcement. The association was “shocked” by the amount of money that was going to police for something that “has nothing to do” with Aboriginal women.They expected some of the money would go toward its vaunted Sisters in Spirit project which developed a database specifically to track cases involving Aboriginal women.Instead, Status of Women Canada officials have told the organization it can’t use any government funding for projects using the name Sisters in Spirit or for upkeep of their database, which has verified almost 600 cases of missing and murdered Aboriginal women.The Conservative government also used the announcement to unveil changes to the Criminal Code giving police more powers on wiretaps and accessing warrants.NWAC says its Sisters in Spirit project will continue with or without government money.NWAC, which held a board meeting over the weekend, is expected to speak Tuesday about their position.The Conservatives set aside $10 million in the last federal budget for a national strategy on murdered and missing women. The government also confirmed their intentions to unveil the strategy in the Speech from the Throne.The government has repeatedly shielded themselves from criticism on their recent announcement by claiming NWAC support.More to comelast_img read more

It will validate the treaty Why 21 Ontario First Nations are challenging

first_imgThe treaties state that if the territory is ceded, then the government could “increase the annuity hereby secured to them, then and in that case the same shall be augmented from time to time.”However, this depended on resource extraction.“If resource revenues went up, then so too would the annuity payments,” wrote researcher James Morrison, in a 1996 report for the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples.The position of the Ontario and federal governments is that once the annuities reached $4 per person, the ability for the treaty to ensure the Anishinabek received a “fair and equitable share of the proceeds of the land was wholly exhausted.”The plaintiffs are seeking clarity on the treaty’s intention and argue the court must choose the meaning that “best reconciles the First Nation interests and those of the Crown.”While those 30,000 beneficiaries could stand to financially benefit from an increase in annuities, Wikwemikong Chief Duke Peltier said a court win could also ensure the Crown abides by the original principles of the treaty.“The understanding of our people was that the nation-to-nation relationship that was entered into in September 9 of 1850 was that there would be mutual respect, that there would be mutual benefits and the sharing of the territory as was requested of the Anishinabek peoples that live here,” he said.A ruling will follow the closing arguments. If a settlement is not reached, then the process will move on to a second phase beginning in the spring of 2019.Restoule said many people perceive treaties as dead historical documents. He hopes this court case changes that.“Our position is that this is a living document.”lscholey@aptn.ca (From left to right: Wikwemikong Chief Duke Peltier, Wasauksing Chief Warren Tabobondung, Shawanaga Chief Wayne Pamajewon, Batchewana Chief Dean Sayers, outside of the teepee on June 4, 2018, the start of the final arguments in the Robinson Huron Treaty Annuities court case. Contributed photo)Lucy ScholeyAPTN NewsWhen Commissioner William Benjamin Robinson’s treaties were signed in 1850, the average Indigenous person living in one of the Lake Superior or Lake Huron bands should have received an annuity payment of about $1.60.Back then, that could have easily afforded a bushel of corn, a pound each of pork and plug tobacco at the Hudson’s Bay Company.Today, under the terms of that same treaty, those band members receive just $4 in annuities – a dollar figure that has not budged since 1874.Now lawyers representing 21 Anishinabek Nations are in court this week for the final arguments in a landmark case that aims to clarify the interpretation of an “augmentation” clause in the Robinson-Huron Treaty and Robinson Superior Treaty.“If we’re successful in the courts, it will validate the treaty itself,” said Mike Restoule, chair of the Robinson-Huron Treaty Litigation committee, who has been helping work on this case for 26 years.In September 2017, the case finally landed in court – first in Thunder Bay and then on to courtrooms throughout the territory over months of testimony.The closing arguments started in Sudbury on Monday and are expected to last until June 22.The plaintiffs, who represent 30,000 First Nations people in the Anishinabek territories north of Lake Huron and Lake Superior, argue that the federal and provincial governments have failed to uphold their end of the treaties.In 1850, after years of negotiations, those First Nations signed on to Commissioner William Benjamin Robinson’s treaties. Their members each received lump payments and were set to receive annuities thereafter.Mike Restoule, chair of the Robinson Huron Treaty Litigation committee.last_img read more

King Mohammed VI Morocco Seeks to Deepen its Relations with Russia

Rabat – King Mohammed VI said on Wednesday his country “remains committed to its strategic relations with its allies” as it pursues renewed political and economic relationships with Russia and other world powers. “Morocco has, in recent months, sought to diversify its partnerships at political, strategic and economic levels,” the Moroccan monarch said during the joint summit of the Gulf Cooperation Council. “My successful visit to Russia, last month, is part of that process.”During meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin in March, the king signed several cooperation agreements in the fields of security, economic development and more. The move marked a “new era” of relations between the two states, according to officials. Relations between Putin’s government and two GCC member countries have been strained over the past few years. Customs officers in Doha allegedly assaulted the Russian ambassador to Qatar in 2011, causing both countries to downsize relations after the Arab state decided against issuing a formal apology for the incident as demanded by Putin.Russia’s relationship with Saudi Arabia has been tense as well, due to Putin’s increasing arms sales to Syrian President Bashar Al Assad’s regime, which has killed countless civilians. Last November, Saudi Arabia pushed the U.N. General Assembly’s human rights committee to pass a resolution condemning Russian and Iranian involvement in the Syrian civil war.Bahrain, on the other hand, has grown relations with the Eastern European country by purchasing Russian weapons during Arab Spring protests that threatened the future of the monarchy. The United States, as well as other key arms supplying countries, had refused to continue selling weapons to Bahrain amidst the demonstrations.The king also said he plans to develop stronger ties to India and China during his visits to the two Asian countries in the coming months. read more

African trade diversification should be encouraged – UNbacked report

6 June 2011African countries should develop closer ties with both traditional and emerging partners, to boost sustainable and inclusive growth, according to a United Nations-backed report released today. The report, African Economic Outlook 2011, said that “Africa is becoming more integrated in the world economy and its partnerships are diversifying, revealing unprecedented economic opportunities.”The report, co-authored by the UN Development Programme (UNDP), the African Development Bank (AfDB), the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), and the UN Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA), also said that governments’ efforts need to include measures to create jobs, invest in basic social services and promote gender equality.“New partners bring new opportunities for African countries. Defining national development priorities, trade, aid and investment is key to reaping the benefits of this new configuration,” said Mario Pezzini, Director of the OECD Development Centre.In 2009, China surpassed the United States and became Africa’s main trading partner, while the share of trade conducted by Africa with emerging partners has grown from approximately 23 per cent to 39 per cent in the last 10 years, the report said. While traditional partners, as a whole, still account for the largest proportion of Africa’s trade, investment and official development assistance, the report said that emerging economies can provide “additional know-how, technology and development experiences required to raise the standard of living for millions of people on the continent.”Africa’s economies have weathered the global crisis relatively well and have rebounded in 2010. Recent political events in North Africa and high food and fuel prices are likely to slow the continent’s growth down to 3.7 per cent in 2011. During this year, sub-Saharan Africa will grow faster than North Africa. “Africa is growing but there are risks. Urgent attention is needed to foster inclusive growth, to improve political accountability, and address the youth bulge,” said Mthuli Ncube, chief economist and Vice-President of the African Development Bank (AfDB).“Putting people first must go hand in hand with efforts to accelerate regional coordination and integration. Trade agreements that benefit the continent as a whole, unleash the full potential of the private sector and develop regional investment opportunities are the way forward,” the report said. read more

Charles Bronson cleared of attacking prison governor after arguing he meant to

Charles Bronson, listening as prison governor Mark Docherty (right) gives evidence at Leeds Crown CourtCredit:Elizabeth Cook/PA As the hearing drew to a conclusion, Bronson told the judge: “That’s a lovely wig. Do they make them in black?”, according to The Examiner. Judge Tom Bayliss QC said to the defendant: “You seem pleased with that, Mr Salvador. You are discharged from this.”Before the link to the court was cut, Bronson smiled and replied: “British justice, best in the world. Thank you.”His supporters in the public gallery welcomed the jury’s decision and laughed.Addressing the jury, the judge said that if they were returning next week, they were unlikely to be involved in a similar case and thanked them for their service.  Notorious prisoner Charles Bronson has been cleared of attempting to seriously harm a prison governor after representing himself at court. Bronson, 66, was said to have lunged at Mark Docherty as he entered a room for a welfare meeting at HMP Wakefield on January 25.He landed on top of Mr Docherty and screamed “I will bite your f***ing nose off and gouge your eyes out”, before prison officers intervened and restrained him.But at Leeds Crown Court, Bronson claimed he had intended to give Mr Docherty a “gentle bear hug” and whisper in his ear, but tripped, or was tripped by someone, and fell.The defendant admitted he partly blamed the governor at Wakefield’s segregation unit after he was told photographs of his prison wedding to actress Paula Williamson two months earlier would no longer be allowed to leave the jail until his release.Bronson said he intended to whisper “where’s my wife’s photos?” in what he described as a “wake-up call” to the governor to not mess with his family.Jurors found Bronson not guilty of attempting to cause grievous bodily harm with intent, after deliberating for just short of three hours on Thursday. Appearing on video link from HMP Frankland, Bronson – who has changed his name to Charles Salvador – pursed his lips together after the verdict was delivered by the jury foreman and then did a celebratory jig as he waved his arms around.

Bucyrus celebrates the delivery of 400th CST gearbox

first_imgIn a ceremony on January 23 at the Bucyrus facility in Lünen, Germany the company celebrated the completion of the 400th CST (Controlled Start Transmission) drive system since 1994. The “Jubilee System” is a gearbox of model size KP-CST 65 and will be delivered to one of its largest customers in the US together with two sister gearboxes. There it will be used on a Bucyrus face conveyor with a total installed power of 3 x 1.200 kW. Bucyrus was awarded the order for a face extension, equipping all 18 AFCs of this customer with two drive frames and three CST drive systems each; that means a total of 54 CST gearboxes. The complete program extends over several years. For the customer, the drive technology offered was the decisive factor for awarding the order to Bucyrus. The first integrated drive system specifically developed for these types of face conveyors was the intelligent CST drive system. CST basically means tha this sytem provides a controlled soft start. It was developed in a joint venture with a Bucyrus underground segment predecessor company, Westfalia Lünen, and the US company Baldor Dodge Reliance. This joint venture was initiated in 1993, and was renewed again in 2008. The renewed 2008 agreement grants Bucyrus sustained exclusivity with respect to the use of this technology in the field of chain conveyors.The drive system consists of a Bucyrus planetary gearbox with an integrated infinitely controlled Baldor Dodge Reliance CST multi-disc clutch which has a proven track record from numerous applications on belt systems. The highly sophisticated drive control system for the CST, the so-called PMC®-D control system, increases the reliability of the system and allows for additional functions such as actively dampening system vibrations.The system offers maximum efficiency and service life of all components with minimum overall dimensions. The drive system is currently available in ratings of 500 kW, 800 kW, or 1,200 kW. The main benefits of the system are:No-load motor start-up with modest energy demand on the electrical systemSoft start of the face conveyor which is gentle to all components, particularly the chainMaximum total torque available to facilitate heavy load start-up of the fully loaded conveyorAccurate load sharing between the drives for full utilization of the installed powerExcellent overload protection in the event of sudden chain jams.The first system was put into service in 1995 at the Twentymile Mine in Colorado, USA which today belongs to the Peabody Group. Since then the system has performed well, which has contributed to increasing Bucyrus’ sales of face conveyors into the US, Australia, Germany, the CIS, China, Mexico, Kazakhstan, as well as the Czech  Republic. This drive system, represents state-of-the art technology and will continue to support the sale of longwall orders throughout the world for Bucyrus.last_img read more

iPhone 5 SIM card tray suggests no major redesign

first_imgWith the iPhone 5 expected to launch as early as September this year, parts for the new phone will start appearing on production lines soon in order to get millions manufactured in time to meet the inevitable demand.Revised parts means new parts for someone on a production line to leak, and that’s apparently what has just happened with the iPhone 5 SIM card tray. The leak comes courtesy of accessory company SW-Box, who claim to have received the part from one of its suppliers.Now I admit a SIM card tray isn’t the most exciting component someone could leak, but it is actually quite telling as to the overall design of the new phone. Everyone is expecting a very different looking iPhone with a tapered back and a move away from the flat edges and glass back of the iPhone4/4S. But this card tray suggests otherwise.As you can see from the image above, the tray continues to sport a flat edge that will be visible on the casing. If the iPhone 5 does have a radical new design, then this card slot couldn’t have a flat edge like this, could it?Of course, with this being a leak, it could turn out this is just an iPhone 4S SIM card tray. It could also be Apple having some fun knowing components leak even at the merest suggestion it is part of the iPhone 5 design.Even so, the iPhone 5 could just be another iterative step in the development of the phone. I’d be surprised if it didn’t include a larger display and a thinner body, but then I wouldn’t be surprised if Apple managed to fit it into a case that’s almost exactly the same as the iPhone 4S design.More at SW-Box, via Cydiabloglast_img read more

Chrome for Android gets WebGL support and chromeflags experiments

first_imgGoogle Chrome for Android continues to gain ground on its desktop cousins, with the latest release of the browser’s Beta version adding support for experimental features via chrome://flags. One that’s of particular interest is the option to enable WebGL support on your mobile device. Yes, the world of standards-based 3D is about to open up before your very eyes on your Android tablet, phone, or HDMI stick PC.Chrome will join Firefox in supporting WebGL on Android, but there’s at least one caveat at this stage of the game. Most mobile websites are served up using vastly different code than their desktop equivalents, and WebGL elements almost always get the boot. If you’ve already flipped the switch on chrome://flags, you may still need to request the desktop version of the page you’re trying to test WebGL on if you want to see it in action.Other experiments may cause additional crashiness, but if you’re already playing with a beta browser anyway why not go all the way? A good answer to that question might be, “because there’s a good chance they won’t have any noticeable effect.” Just because a flag is available doesn’t mean all the necessary bits to support it are fully functional in Chrome for Android just yet.At this point, the fact that the flags page has made the jump to Android has more to do with streamlining development and continuing to equalize Chrome on all platforms. Google’s hope, of course, is for Chrome to become the platform at some point, and that means making sure that all its versions behave the same way.More at Chrome Releaseslast_img read more

Martinez backs Belgium duo to shine in La Liga

first_imgBelgium boss Roberto Martinez is expecting both Thibaut Courtois and Michy Batshuayi to have impressive campaigns in La LigaThe pair both had a role in Belgium’s best ever World Cup campaign this summer that saw the national side claim a best finish of third place with Courtois’ displays earning him the Golden Glove award.The goalkeeper completed a dream £35m move from Chelsea to Real Madrid earlier this month, but has been left on the bench ever since in favour of current number one Keylor Navas.But Martinez is certain that his moment will come.“Yes. He is a young man with a lot of experience. He has been growing, and the more he is required and pushed, the more results he gives,” Martinez told El Pais.“I know that being the number one of Real Madrid implies a high level of competition, but I work with him and can say that he is in the best moment of his career”Meanwhile, Batshuayi recovered from a season-ending ankle ligament injury to feature for Belgium in the World Cup.Sergio Ramos, Real MadridZidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.The 24-year-old managed to grab a goal in the Red Devils’ campaign in Russia and has since joined Valencia on loan from Chelsea.Batshuayi has so far been restricted to just two late substitute appearances for Valencia in their opening La Liga games.But the goals will come, reckons Martinez.“An intuitive player capable of scoring goals where others can not. If you give him love, he returns it with goals,” he said.“He is a boy who lives by and for soccer. Very old-fashioned. You can see him in the smile he has when he is on the field.“I think that Marcelino’s system can bring out the best in him.”last_img read more

Missing man protesters take stand at Queens parade

first_img Bishop says peace & prosperity is everybody’s responsibility at Law Enforcers Church Service Memories of two TCI men lost on March 4 Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 16 Jun 2015 – Tired of waiting and feeling forgotten, a group of protesters congregated peacefully at the Queen’s Birthday Honors Parade yesterday in Grand Turk; a parade where the Governor is host and virtually the entire police force is on site. With placards expressing their disappointment in the lack of information coming and apparent dormant state of the investigation into the disappearance of their loved one, Kevino Smith, some in the Capital used the opportunity to quietly demand answers. The photos floated around on social media yesterday and asked the Governor to get involved in the case… asked the Governor who is policing the police and stated flatly that justice delayed is justice denied. Smith, who was reported missing since March 4, 2015 has been unseen since then… and it has been exactly two months since the discovery of human remains in the Breezy Brae area of Grand Turk. There has been no identity of those remains; there has been no update to the general public on the case and despite ACP Rodney Adams flashing assurances that now that he is on the case, it would be handled more expertly… the police appear to be lost and are silent, and obviously too silent for family and friends to bear any longer. It had been promised at the time during a press conference following the discovery of those remains, that special forensics work would be done and that those suspected of harming Kevino would be monitored. Supporters with their placards reminded that justice is not just for the rich and that Kevino Smith matters and deserves justice.

These types of celebrations impact local businesses, commuters, public bus transportation, and emergency vehicles.”Mexico lost to Sweden 3-0 on Wednesday, but a surprise upset by South Korea over Germany left Mexico in second place in Group F, and they will face off against Group E winner Brazil at 7 a.m. Pacific time Monday.It will be a pivotal game for Mexico — the team has made it to the round of 16 in the last six World Cup tournaments, but has failed advance any further each time.

Some voterapproved parks put on hold

first_imgFacing a potential shortage of money to pay for parks maintenance and operation, the Greater Clark Parks District will hold off on building nine projects. The funding shortage, directly tied to a poor housing market and falling assessed values, means the district’s promise to voters will fall short, officials said Friday.The parks district, established in 2005 by voters who live in Hazel Dell, Salmon Creek and other urban areas outside of city limits, has built 23 neighborhood and community parks.Four projects underway — Chinook Neighborhood Park, Covington Neighborhood Park, Douglas Carter Fisher Neighborhood Park and Luke Jensen Sports Park — will be completed, said Heath Henderson, engineering and construction manager for Clark County Public Works.Once those four projects are completed, Clark County will have built 26 of the program’s 35 parks, along with 26 of its 41 sports fields.Nine projects — Curtin Creek and Pleasant Valley community parks and Dogwood, East Minnehaha, Kozy Kamp, Otto Brown, Salmon Creek Community Club, Sorenson and Tower Crest neighborhood parks — will be delayed, Henderson said.last_img read more
