first_imgCALGARY, A.B. – Finance Minister Bill Morneau is headed west next week with plans to give a speech to a Calgary business audience a day ahead of a deadline set by Kinder Morgan for its controversial Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project.The Calgary Chamber of Commerce, which announced the event set for May 30, says the speech will focus on securing Canada’s economic future.Kinder Morgan suspended all non-essential construction on the Trans Mountain project in April, citing obstruction by B.C. that put the viability of the pipeline in question. The company has set a May 31 deadline for getting assurances it can proceed without delays on the controversial project.Morneau said last week the federal government is willing to cover cost overruns caused by political uncertainty on the pipeline project.However, the minister also said if Kinder Morgan were to walk away from the pipeline, there are other investors willing to step in.last_img read more

20 March 2008Over 60 per cent of Africans lack access to a proper toilet, according to the United Nations World Health Organization (WHO) and UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) ahead of World Water Day – observed on 22 March – whose 2008 theme is “Sanitation Matters.” Over 60 per cent of Africans lack access to a proper toilet, according to the United Nations World Health Organization (WHO) and UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) ahead of World Water Day – observed on 22 March – whose 2008 theme is “Sanitation Matters.” The Day aims to raise awareness to the plight of 2.6 billion people worldwide who live without toilets in their homes and are therefore vulnerable to numerous health risks. Contamination of water, soil and food results from the human contact with the bacteria, viruses and parasites, which in turn cause diarrhoea, the second largest killer of children in developing countries. “Sanitation is a cornerstone of public health,” said Margaret Chan, WHO Director-General. “Improved sanitation contributes enormously to human health and wellbeing, especially for girls and women.” Of the 2.6 billion people without toilets in their homes, nearly 1 billion of them are children. The two agencies approximate that 1.2 billion people gained access to improved sanitation between 1990 and 2004, but at the current rate, 2.4 billion people will still be without basic sanitation in 2015. “The absence of adequate sanitation has a serious impact on health and social development, especially for children,” Ann M. Veneman, UNICEF Executive Director, pointed out. She noted that enhanced support for improving sanitation will save lives and speed up progress towards reaching the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), eight anti-poverty objectives with a target date of 2015. Pollution generated by sewage, much of which ends up in coastal waters, leads an economic loss of $16 billion annually and is estimated to cause four million lost “man-years” yearly in terms of human ill-health, said Achim Steiner, Executive Director of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) in a message for the Day. “In many developed countries, part of the answer over the past half century has been found in ever more sophisticated, multi-million dollar water treatment works.” But as projects such as one at the Shimo la Tewa jail in Mombasa, a city on the Kenyan coast, highlight that there are less costly solutions to the problem that are beneficial for other reasons, Mr. Steiner noted.In this project, inmates work with nature to neutralize human wastes by using wetland-filtered water, called “black wastewater,” for irrigation and fish farming, providing a source of protein which can be consumed or sold to local markets.Additionally, this wastewater – containing high concentrations of human waste – will also be used to produced biogas, which can be serve as fuel for cooking, heating and lighting. This could slash the costs of the 4,000-person prison and curb emissions.The scheme in Mombasa, which is also expected to help wildlife such as birds and marine organisms, has a price tag of $25 per person served, which is significantly less than projects in developed countries, the Executive Director said.“It is hoped that the lessons learn can be applied to other parts of the world so that the multiple challenges of sanitation and pollution can, in part, be viewed through a nature-based lens,” he observed.“Working with nature rather than against it is part of that intelligent decision-making that may prove a faster, more cost-effective and more economically attractive way of achieving local and international health and poverty goals.”Events marking World Water Day will be held globally, in places ranging from Bangladesh to Ecuador, and from Guyana to Senegal.In New York today, UNICEF and the UN Development Programme (UNDP) are attempting to break the record for the longest toilet line to raise awareness about the global sanitation crisis. read more

by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted Jun 4, 2014 9:04 am MDT Canada’s two largest airlines signalled that passenger demand remains strong heading into the summer season as they both flew fuller planes as growth in passenger traffic outpaced additional capacity in May.Air Canada (TSX:AC.B) posted a record load factor of 83.3 per cent in the seasonally slower month, up from 81.8 per cent a year earlier.System-wide traffic, including at its low-cost subsidiary Rouge and regional partners, increased 10.1 per cent, led by increases in the U.S. transborder, Latin America, Caribbean and Atlantic markets. Capacity was up 8.1 per cent.“Air Canada generated greater traffic for the month of May in all markets the airline serves,” CEO Calin Rovinescu said in a news release Wednesday after markets closed.Rouge itself had an 84.9 per cent load factor in the month. Load factor refers to the proportion of its fleet that is filled with passengers.Traffic, as measured by the distance flown by passengers, was up 18.8 per cent between Canada and the U.S., 12.5 per cent in the Atlantic market, 14.1 per cent in Latin America and the Caribbean and seven per cent in the Pacific.Domestic Canadian traffic increased five per cent, while capacity grew 2.1 per cent pushing up the load factor to 81.1 per cent.David Tyerman of Canaccord Genuity said the market can handle Air Canada’s capacity growth.Although the airline didn’t comment on pricing trends, he said the “quarter appears to be shaping up very well” given that most of the second quarter’s traffic is now reported.Earlier, WestJet (TSX:WJA) said its passenger traffic increased 4.8 per cent on a 4.1 per cent boost in capacity.As a result, its planes were fuller with the load factor increasing to 79 per cent, up from 78.5 per cent in May of 2013.“We are very pleased with our continued strong year-over-year traffic growth as a record number of guests in May chose to fly with WestJet,” president and CEO Gregg Saretsky said in a statement.The Calgary-based carrier said it flew 1.6 million passengers in May, a 5.1 per cent increase from the same time last year.WestJet recently launched its regional discount service Encore and has said it could start an international service in the coming years.In May, WestJet posted first-quarter net earnings of $89.3 million, or 69 cents per diluted share, down two per cent from the same quarter last year.Chris Murray of AltaCorp Capital said WestJet’s good off-season performance, in which traffic numbers beat his forecasts, sets up the airline for a strong summer.“We expect the company to continue to experience strong demand in all segments of the business, while input costs and the Canadian dollar appear to have stabilized which is supportive of continued earnings growth,” he wrote in a report.Tyerman said the slowing capacity growth from 9.1 per cent last May could help WestJet generate a 13.2 per cent average annual earnings per share growth from 2014 to 2016.He said the heavy capacity growth of more than nine per cent in the last 12 months has made it difficult for the carrier to recover higher costs. But the significantly slower capacity growth could make it easier for it to increase prices to offset higher costs, he noted.Cameron Doerksen of National Bank Financial said his weekly tracking of fares indicates that they continue to increase heading into the summer travel season.On the Toronto Stock Exchange, Air Canada’s shares closed at $9.51, up 33 cents or 3.59 per cent in Wednesday trading. WestJet’s shares gained 36 cents, or 1.45 per cent, to $25.26.Follow @RossMarowits on Twitter.

” “The most egregious example is North Korea,” continued Ms. Bishop, pointing out that the country is openly defying the UN Security Council, putting millions of people at risk. It is crucial for all UN Member States to strictly implement the Council’s sanctions to compel Pyongyang to abandon its “illegal programmes.” Other threats highlighted by the Foreign Minister were the increasing activities of non-State actors, terrorism and violent extremism. “Global terrorism – and the extreme Islamist ideologies driving it – must be confronted and defeated,” she stressed. Ms. Bishop maintained that terrorism can be effectively battled, and beaten, if everyone worked together, sharing knowledge and resources. Ms. Bishop drew a link between security and economic development, saying that one cannot be achieved without the other. She endorsed a UN development system more focused on sustainable economic development that provides opportunities and facilitates partnerships with the private sector. Noting that economic resilience can be undermined by natural and man-made disasters, she cited the 2030 agenda, Paris Agreement, Sendai Framework on Disaster Risk Reduction and the World Humanitarian Summit’s Grand Bargain as “a blueprint for global action on those problems which can only be addressed by working together on challenges that don’t respect national borders.” Full statement available here read more

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — Wilmington residents Matthew Cayer and Lauren Nieuweboer recently suffered a parent’s worst nightmare — the loss of their 8-month-old son Julian.In the face of unimaginable grief from their personal tragedy, Matthew and Lauren are trying to bring a little bit of joy to other Wilmington families in honor of Julian’s memory.Recently, the couple organized a free ice cream truck event for the Wilmington community at Yentile Farm on August 25. The date had great significance — it would’ve have been their son’s first birthday.Now, the couple is hoping to start the process of bringing a splash pad to Wilmington, and they’d like to organize a fundraising campaign to cover its construction costs.Matt, and his father George, were on hand at last week’s Wilmington Recreation Commission Meeting, where Recreation Director Karen Campbell and the commissioners held initial discussions on the feasibility of a splash pad in town.“[The Cayers] have been in discussions with Town Manager Jeff Hull, Health Director, DPW Superintendent Mike Woods, and myself,” said Recreation Director Karen Campbell. “We’ve all tossed this idea around to try to figure out if [a splash pad] makes sense and how it would work.”Campbell recognizes a splash pad would be popular with Wilmington families.“Certainly, everyone loves a splash pad,” said Campbell. “Kids love them. And parents love them because kids love them.”The Town’s ConcernsTown officials do, however, have several concerns — including location, maintenance, and cost.“This would require a certain amount of land to do it properly. We just can’t put down a little slab and have things shoot out of it,” cautioned Campbell. “You really need to have a significant apron around it in order to not have dirt, mud and grass tracked into it. You need a perimeter fence so no one is tempted to drive a vehicle through it or animals roam through it. It needs to be of a fairly significant size… You also need ample parking.”“[Splash pads] also require a lot of maintenance,” noted Campbell. “They’re very susceptible to constant breakdowns. They need to be swept perfectly to keep debris out. Their filters must be checked daily. Their recirculated water also needs to be tested everyday.”Campbell said that while the splash pad wouldn’t be staffed with a lifeguard or any town employee, someone would need to maintain it — likely someone at DPW — who can conduct tests, make minor repairs, and change filters.“A splash pad would have to be incorporated into DPW’s regular routines,” said Campbell.Campbell noted that the Health Department also shared some concerns over the possibility of a splash pad.“There’s communicable diseases associated with water of any kind,” said Campbell. “There’s also athlete foot — that kind of stuff can be an issue.”“And splash pads are significantly expensive,” added Campbell. “This would range anywhere from $100,000 to $500,000.”“We don’t want to put a financial burden on the town or its DPW,” responded George Cayer. “If it’s done correctly and structured correctly, people love the splash pads.”The Cayers asked the Recreation Commission to research the Marlborough Splash Pad, which they feel would be a good model for Wilmington. They advised the Commission to avoid the mistakes of Tewksbury’s new splash pad.Location, Location, LocationThe Cayers asked if Yentile Farm, Town Beach, or the new playground area at Murray Hill Circle could be an appropriate spot for a splash pad?“A splash pad was discussed early on for Yentile Farm, but it was eventually taken off the table for funding and maintenance reasons,” recalled Campbell. “Now, the only space [for a splash pad] at Yentile would be on the green/event space. But the intention was for that space to be used for passive recreation — picnics, frisbee, casual little games. It was also supposed to be a spot for community events — WCTV Family Fun Day and the Senior Center’s Grandparents Day are happening there this weekend. The Farmers Market has used it a couple of times.”“And there’s only 109 parking spots at Yentile. With all the use at the playground and turf field, I do not think Yentile would a suitable site for a splash pad,” continued Campbell. “But if some of the Textron land ever became available that was continuous to Yentile, that would be plenty big enough. But right now, Textron is a no go.”Campbell also dismissed Town Beach and Murray Hill Circle as realistic options.“Our Town Beach is really just too small to put a splash pad in,” said Campbell. “Winchester put one in on their town beach and sand constantly clogs it. They said it was the worse decision of all time… And we already encounter non-residents who don’t want to pay to access the beach. How is it [going to go over] when we have to charge them to use the splash pad at the beach?”The Murray Hill Circle playground, meanwhile, was recently constructed by a developer who is putting in 36 homes off of Eleanor Estates. The playground, and trails surrounding the development, are open to the public. (The playground still lacks plants, trees and benches at the moment.)  The playground, however, is simply too small too accommodate a splash pad.Funding, Funding, FundingCampbell stressed that the town has more than $150 million of building needs identified and cannot commit to funding a splash pad at this time.“The schools are really desperately needing. [Look] at the Wildwood. Many seniors feel it’s their time [relative to a new Senior Center]. And we just put in a big park,” said Campbell, referring to Yentile Farm.“We’re ready to help in fundraising this along,” Matt Cayer told the Campbell and the Commissioners. “We haven’t set up a specific fundraising campaign yet. We figured it’s a bit premature without having a foundation or knowing how this discussion would go.”Cayer noted his family recently tarted an informal petition and has received many signatures in support of bringing a splash pad to Wilmington.“Any project of this scope that depends on fundraising needs a backup plan. Would that fall to town?,” asked Recreation Department Clerk Linda Kanter. “Would the cost then be spread out amongst tax payers for something that was originally intendned to be given to the town or funded by fundraising…. I’d want to know what the backup plan is if fundraising doesn’t meet its goals.”“We don’t see this as a today or tomorrow project,” responded George Cayer. “The first bulldozer won’t do anything until the project is fully covered…. The plan is the project’s costs would have to be covered before work were to begin.”“Without a site, a recommendation or an approval, we’re not even at the start line of this marathon,” added Matt Cayer. “If we put a project plan together, it would be hard to begin fundraising or donating money without a cost or location. It’s kind of a chicken or the egg situation.”“Thank you for introducing this to us tonight,” Campbell told the Cayers. “We’re willing to listen to anything you bring to the table and consider it. And, remember, [the Recreation Commission] is not a decision-making board. We’re a a recommending board. We typically make our recommendations to the Board of Selectmen.”Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook. Follow Wilmington Apple on Twitter. Follow Wilmington Apple on Instagram.

Khurrana’s path-breaking act in Article 15, which makes you uncomfortable by showing the rigid and unjust caste system in the country, can certainly be called his career-best so far. However, with the pace with which he is choosing films, there’s no denying the fact that he is establishing himself as both commercially successful and critically acclaimed.PlotPolice officer Ayan Ranjan (Ayushmann Khurrana) comes to Lalgaon in UP to solve a case where two young girls were raped and murdered and hung from a tree for Rs 3.StarcastAyushmann Khurrana plays the role of police officer Ayan Ranjan.

first_imgOne of the great things about having The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on PC is the abundance of mods available to enhance your game experience or just to add some more fun. Two of my favorites are the Macho Dragon Mod and the Posh Mudcrab mod. There have also been numerous Kinect hacks in the year and a half since its release. Combine the two with a Sony HMZ-T1 and the TrackIR5 and you’ve got yourself the mother of all mods.Chris Zaharia created the mod you can see in the above video, providing a way to fully immerse yourself in the world of Skyrim. The mod uses Kinect for motion tracking and gestures, allowing you to walk on the spot to move your character or swing your arm to use a weapon.The Sony HMZ-T1 is a headset with dual HD 720p OLED panels allowing for stereoscopic 3D viewing and virtual 5.1 surround sound. I can only imagine the awesomeness that comes from playing Skyrim in 3D through this headset. Couple that with the TrackIR5 for advanced head tracking allowing you to cast your eyes in any direction you please, and you’ll soon forget you live on plain old planet Earth.A script is provided for setting up voice commands, but only basic menu commands are provided. You can easily add your own though, possibly assigning a voice command to “Fus Ro Dah” allowing you to really feel like the Dovahkiin.After viewing the video, my impression is that it’s not quite perfect (bloopers at the end) so I wouldn’t rush out and spend all your hard earned cash on any equipment you don’t already own. The walking gestures look like they could become tiresome, but with the FAAST software you could map it to a gesture of your choosing. Another Kinect mod shows a possibly improved way of performing it, with running forward set by simply placing your right foot forward and placing it further forward to activate sprinting.More at Zookcal, via reghardwarelast_img read more

first_img Facebook Comments Foreign Minister Manuel González Sanz told the Legislative Assembly on Thursday that Costa Rica’s decision to walk out of the United Nations (U.N.) session before Brazilian President Michel Temer’s speech was made two days earlier.González said the Costa Rican entourage in New York had evaluated the list of speeches scheduled for the last day of sessions of the U.N. General Assembly and that “President Luis Guillermo Solís said at the meeting that he was not interested in hearing Brazil’s speech,” González told lawmakers.The minister noted that it is not mandatory for a president to attend a full session “and stay there for eight or nine hours listening to all the scheduled speeches.”González said that the Costa Rican delegation left the session before the Brazilian president took the stand; therefore, their action cannot be considered a snub. He noted that their decision was “absolutely sovereign and independent,” adding that it had no relation to a walkout staged by other countries that also left the room before Temer’s speech.The country delegations that walked off in protest — Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaragua, Ecuador and Bolivia, all members of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Americas (ALBA) — left the U.N. General Assembly at the same time members of the Costa Rican entourage were leaving.Social Christian Unity Party legislator Luis Vázquez asked González if he considered that a coincidence. “Of course I do. I have no reason to lie, but we didn’t leave holding each other’s hands,” the minister responded.Tense momentsMinister González’s hearing was interrupted for a few minutes by complaints from lawmakers from the ruling Citizen Action Party (PAC) about questions from National Liberation Party (PLN) legislator Rolando González.The legislator asked the minister several times about reports that Costa Rica’s ambassador to Brazil, Jairo Valverde, supposedly submitted to San José regarding the current political situation in that country.The minister said the reports exist, but he first needed to prepare the information before handing it to the Assembly. He said that he had to follow the ministry’s procedures to handle such documents.The PLN legislator however kept asking the minister to hand over the reports, igniting vocal protests from various PAC legislators.González then asked the minister if the government considered Temer’s appointment a coup. The minister said Costa Rica was not in a position to judge that situation and noted that under Brazilian laws impeachment is a valid legal procedure.The question angered PAC legislators Franklin Corella and Marco Vinicio Redondo, who engaged in a heated exchange with González. They even demanded the Assembly’s directorate suspend the session, but González claimed that the ruling party was only trying to censor him.Acting Legislative President José Alfaro warned the lawmakers that the session was only paused until “calm and respect return to the room.”The minister resumed the hearing by saying the administration of President Solís is not trying to downplay the U.N. situation. He noted, however, that he believes the incident had been blown out of proportion.Normal relationsGonzález’s hearing started at 3 p.m. He started by telling lawmakers that the country’s action at the U.N. did not violate any of Costa Rica’s foreign policies.He also said that the country is not at all interested in joining ALBA “or any other similar group, such as Petrocaribe.”The Foreign Minister said that the walkout had nothing to do with the impeachment of former President Dilma Rousseff, and that Costa Rica is more concerned about repressive actions against the Brazilian people following Rousseff’s exit.González said he doesn’t believe Costa Rica’s relations with Brazil have been undermined or damaged.He told legislators, as an example, that Brazil’s Foreign Minister José Serra approached and talked to President Solís in Cartagena last Monday during the signing of the peace deal in Colombia.González also noted that upon Temer’s return to Brazil, he told various media outlets that the walkout “was meaningless.”Minister González’s hearing ended at 5:30 p.m.See a video of Costa Rica and other countries walking out of the U.N.
