first_imgAPTN National NewsOTTAWA–The number of First Nations under drinking water advisories has grown by nearly 40 per cent since 2006, the Liberals said Friday.Using numbers provided in by the government in response to a question placed on the Order Paper, the Liberals said conditions have worsened on reserves since the Conservatives took over in 2006.The number of First Nations living under drinking water advisories grew to 131 in 2011 from 95 in 2006, according to the numbers provided by the government in response to a question submitted by interim Liberal leader Bob Rae.“The Conservative government says it is making progress to improve water quality for First Nations, but evidence clearly says otherwise,” said Liberal Aboriginal affairs critic Carolyn Bennett in a statement.The number of communities under drinking water advisories grew nearly every year between 2006 and 2011. Only 2007 saw a drop with 93 communities under advisories, according to numbers provided by Health Canada. The number of First Nations under advisories jumped to 103 in 2008, 111 in 2009, 119 in 2010 and 131 in 2011.Oil-rich Alberta saw the number of communities under advisories grow from eight to 33 between 2006 and 2011. Every other province, except Ontario, saw their numbers rise or remain the same over the same time period. In 2006, Ontario had 38 communities under advisories, which dropped by one to 37 in 2011.Quebec only had one community under an advisory in 2011, the same as 2006. Manitoba, which has a number of communities with residents living with no running water, only had two First Nations living under an advisory in 2011.British Columbia had 31 communities under advisories in 2011, up from 30 in 2006, Saskatchewan rose from 11 to 20 over the same time period and Atlantic Canada went from six to seven.Aboriginal Affairs Minister John Duncan has said the government has no plans for major new investments in improving the water situation on reserves. Instead, Duncan has said the government will focus on passing legislation to set regulations and standards for reserve water and wastewater systems.A government commissioned study, released in June, found that the federal government needed to spend a total of $4.7 billion over the next decade to keep water and waste-water systems up to standard and meet the needs of growing First Nations population.The study, by firm Neegan Burnside, said the federal government needed to immediately invest about $1.2 billion to raise reserve-based water and sewage systems to standards set by Aboriginal Affairs.The study concluded that it was not “credible” to implement a new “regulatory regime” unless the government also provided funding to allow First Nations to meet the new rules.A spokesperson for the federal Aboriginal Affairs department referred the issue to Health Canada. Health Canada could not provide an immediate response.In its response to Rae’s question, Health Canada said drinking water advisories are put in place for things like line breaks, equipment failure, absence of trained water treatment plant operators and chlorine residuals.Health Canada said an advisory may only impact one building and does not always represent a “community-wide drinking water problem.” The department said the number of advisories on First Nations “fluctuates.”The advisories include orders to boil water and do not consumer orders, Health Canada said.last_img read more

first_imgTaroudant, Morocco- The court of Nador announced Friday morning that the verdict in the case, known as the “kiss of Nador” will be pronounced on December 6. “After a new hearing that lasted more than two hours, the judge stated that the judgment would be delivered on December 6,” said AFP.The teenagers from the northeastern city of Nador were arrested on Oct. 3 for “violating public decency” by posting a photo of them kissing, and were held at a juvenile detention center before they were released on bail on Oct. 7. The detention of the three teens stirred controversy with a majority of Moroccans calling for their release and urging the government to focus on fighting corruption and providing employment opportunities to the youth.Two days after the preliminary hearing, the international hacktivist group led a campaign in the social media Twitter where they bombarded Moroccan government Twitter accounts with tweets using the hashtag  #NadorKiss.© Morocco World News.

KINGSEY FALLS, Que. — Cascades Inc. reported a second-quarter loss of $83 million, impacted by such factors as its exit from the kraft paper business and a European mill closure.That amounts to 88 cents per share, compared with a net profit of $2 million, or three cents per share, in the same quarter in 2013.Excluding items, adjusted net earnings amounted to $7 million, or eights cents per share, compared with $8 million, or nine cents per share, for the same period in 2013.In July, Cascades announced the closure of its kraft paper plant in East Angus, Que., cutting 175 jobs. Cascades has said the closure was due to unfavourable market conditions and the inability to finalize a sale of the plant. Kraft paper is used to make envelopes, promotional materials and fast-food wrapping.The Quebec company also announced the sale of its fine papers division to Rolland Enterprises Inc., a subsidiary of H.I.G. Capital, for $39.5 million, closed a boxboard mill in Sweden and refinanced some of its debt.“These decisions, while having a negative impact on our net results in the short term, will positively impact our profitability in the medium and long term and give us more flexibility to invest in our strategic assets,” president and CEO Mario Plourde said Tuesday in a statement.“Even if some of these decisions were difficult to make, we need to appreciate the progress achieved and keep in mind that they will strengthen the financial situation of the company,” Plourde said. read more

Scattered across the globe, indigenous peoples are among the most disadvantaged and vulnerable populations on earth. Braving injustice and discrimination, many are forced to struggle to remain on their ancestral lands and retain the right to their natural resources that are essential to their survival. Others have long since been removed from their lands and denied their languages and traditional ways.Indigenous peoples face distinct development challenges and fare worse in terms of social and economic development than do non-indigenous populations in the countries in which they live, says the UN. Yet with their traditional knowledge of natural resource management, which has long sustained some of the world’s most diverse ecosystems, they can contribute significantly to achieving the objectives of sustainable development. The new Sustainable Development Goals which countries are in the process of negotiating “present a unique opportunity to remedy these shortcomings and the historical injustices resulting from racism, discrimination and inequalities long suffered by indigenous peoples across the world,” according to UN experts on the rights of the indigenous.As the first-ever World Conference on Indigenous Peoples opened in New York, indigenous delegates, Heads of State and Government, UN officials and representatives of national human rights institutions sat down to share perspectives and best practices in order to address inequalities that adversely affect indigenous communities. Loggers clear indigenous lands in the Congo. IWGIA/Marianne JensenIn fact, a substantial gap remains between the formal recognition of indigenous peoples and the implementation of policies on the ground. While a number of countries have constitutional and legislative frameworks that take indigenous rights into account, many others do not, leaving their lives and lands open to threats. In Bolivia, an Uru-Chipaya man contemplates a lagoon that gives life to the desert-like habitat of his people. UNIC La Paz/Noelia Zelaya“Unless we mainstream the rights of indigenous peoples, unless we are serious about their empowerment, unless we work with them as equal partners – then any global development agenda we conceive will be a hollow exercise, empty, because it will not reach the most disadvantaged,” said IFAD President Kanayo Nwanze at the Conference. Opening of the first-ever World Conference of Indigenous Peoples in September 2014. UN Photo/Cia PakTo forge new ways to advance the rights of the indigenous, including the objectives of the UN Declaration, more than a thousand participants from every corner of the globe gathered at UN Headquarters in New York for the first-ever World Conference on Indigenous Peoples – convened in September 2014 as a high-level meeting of the General Assembly.

IWGIA/Alejandro ParelladaIn Peru, gold mining – a process that involves the use of mercury – is destroying the region’s biodiversity and poisoning rivers such as the Madre de Dios, a tributary of the Amazon, that are a lifeline for many indigenous people. At the World Conference, Governments pledged to consult in good faith with indigenous peoples in order to obtain their free and informed consent prior to the approval of projects that affect their lands and resources. In Kenya, peaceful demonstrators from the Maasai community defend their rights to their lands. MPIDOThe UN Declaration stresses that indigenous peoples shall not be forcibly relocated from their lands or territories without their “free, prior and informed consent,” and their agreement to “fair and just compensation.” But many are extremely vulnerable to land grabbing, forced displacement and involuntary resettlement. A session of the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues. UN/Eskinder DebebeIndigenous peoples are effective advocates for their rights, and have engaged the UN since its inception. In 2007, the UN General Assembly adopted the landmark Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, which sets minimum standards for their survival, dignity and well-being. Countries are beginning to reflect these principles in their laws, but there is a long road ahead. Child labour in Nepal. OHCHR/Robert FewWhen it comes to education, indigenous children are often left behind. For indigenous minorities in countries such as Nepal, for example, child labour is common, schooling is not, says the UN human rights office – OHCHR.

But as water temperatures rise, bleaching the coral reefs that sustain underwater biodiversity, marine life is dwindling, making it harder to fish. More frequent and more severe storms also pose a threat to the Moken dwellings as well as to their boats, without which they cannot survive. Nobel Peace Prize winner Rigoberta Menchú.

Credit: Nick Roll | For The LanternThe goaltending of redshirt senior goaltender Sean Romeo led the No. 7 Ohio State men’s hockey team to a 1-0 victory on the road against No. 5 Notre Dame.Ohio State (4-2-1) was looking to turn its season around after a shaky start, including a series tie with UMass and a blowout at the hands of Bowling Green, and everything clicked for the Buckeyes on the road against Notre Dame (3-3-1). The Buckeyes came out hot against Notre Dame, registering eight shots in the first period before scoring the first and only goal of the game.The first period score came with just under nine minutes into the game off a power play goal by senior forward Mason Jobst. He was assisted on his fourth goal of the year by redshirt junior defenseman Wyatt Ege and freshman forward Gustaf Westlund, who each notched their third points of the season.Freshman forward Quinn Preston, still awaiting his first point for the Buckeyes, turned in a good performance on the second line with junior forward Tanner Laczynski out for Friday night’s game. Preston had two shots on goal and was often there to confront Notre Dame when it had control of the puck.Romeo had a challenging season leading up to the Big Ten opener, allowing 11 goals on 60 shots faced in the three games he appeared in. Friday night, however, he showed signs of returning to form against one of the best teams in the nation.He didn’t allow a single goal on the 23 shots sent his way by the Fighting Irish, good for his third career shutout. Notre Dame pressured Ohio State on defense, imposing itself in the Buckeyes’ territory, but Romeo responded to the challenge and turned in his best performance of the season.Ohio State had positive developments on its special teams, which so far this season had been a struggle on both ends of the power play. The Buckeyes converted on one of their three power plays and killed Notre Dame’s only opportunity of the night.The Buckeyes showed improvement in discipline, only earning two penalties all night after previously earning 34 penalties in their first six games.The Buckeyes will return to Compton Family Ice Arena to face Notre Dame at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday. read more

first_imgNetflix isn’t in many people’s good books at the moment after announcing a 60% price hike for its services earlier this week. Splitting movie streaming from DVD rentals means a $15.98 charge for those who want both, but if you just opt for streaming there’s a new device that can now playback Netflix streams.Nintendo has announced today that the 3DS joins the Wii in being able to watch Netflix, something Nintendo claims 1.5 million Wii owners already do everyday in the U.S. and Canada. Now 3DS owners can do it while remaining a little more mobile, although still limited to the within range of their wireless broadband connection.In order to watch you need to be a subscriber paying the $7.99 a month Netflix streaming fee. There’s also a free Netflix app that should now be available to download from the Nintendo eShop. A good broadband connection is also essential if you want smooth video playback.For the moment, Netflix streams will be 2D only, but still displayed on the larger upper screen of the 3DS. A special library of 3D content is planned to take full advantage of that glasses-free 3D display, but there’s no specific date for when it will be introduced.Any parent concerned about what their kids will be able to watch on the service will be pleased to hear that it is tied into the 3DS parental controls options. So it should be a simple task to limit access to adult content.The good news for Nintendo is not only does this make the 3DS more attractive, but it requires users to update their handheld to the latest firmware before Netflix will work. That update adds the eShop and Pokedex 3D app along with a number of security updates we’re sure.Read more at the Nintendo press releaselast_img read more

But artist Samuel Cole has taken this to new levels.He’s the gay dancer and performer that is proudly expressing himself, undefined by gender, in a series of new portraits.In an interview with Gay Star News, he tells us why he got naked and used his body as a canvas. Throwing paint over himself in art inspired by the rainbow flag, this is the motive behind his new series:The act of throwing paint over himself, is about expressing emotion | Photo: Samuel Cole / Mark ListerWhat is the meaning behind the art?The meaning for me is a sense of expression and the whole process can be very spontaneous as to how I’m feeling on that day. The LGBTI community is very important to me so I’m constantly thinking of ways to express that through my work.But I like to give the audience and anyone who looks at the images to find their own meaning and connection to my work. Whenever someone contacts me to say they wish they could do that or create work like mine I always say yes you can and to me, that’s really why I do it.Sam is also a dancer and performer | Photo: Samuel Cole / Mark ListerWhat do you want people to take away from these photos?I want them to know it’s all about emotion. There is so much going on in the world and within our community.The great thing about photography and working with photographers is you are able to capture tiny moments of feeling.Sam’s art was inspired by the rainbow flag | Photo: Samuel Cole / Mark ListerWhat inspired the shoot?I’m constantly inspired by my surroundings. One day I felt frustrated from my creative outlet being forced to be a certain way. So I grabbed the paint and that’s how it began.My sexuality and gender drove me to push the artwork more.center_img Got a news tip? Want to share your story? Email us . I think today, in a world of social media, we are overwhelmed by images. If I can contribute in a positive and thought-provoking way with my photos, then that’s great.Sam wants his work to inspire people to express their sexuality and gender | Photo: Samuel Cole / Mark ListerWhy did you put yourself at the center of the artwork?As a trained dancer and performer there is always a part of me that enjoys being in front of the camera.But really it’s because I spent so much time and energy auditioning – I needed to do something that I was in control of without judgment.Much glitter | Photo: Samuel Cole / Mark ListerBeyond the rainbow, what is behind the different colors choices?The multicolored images are influenced by the rainbow flag. But also how we hold our colorful flag with such pride. Covering myself with the colors was very empowering.Other colors I choose because of the mood I was feeling that day. Sometimes it was as clear as choosing a color that is gender specific and then breaking the binary mold.Some of the colors were focused on breaking gender molds | Photo: Samuel Cole / Mark ListerFollow Samuel Cole on Instagram: @cole.srjRead more from Gay Star News:These photos of a naked couple will challenge your view of sex and gender Lebanese singer Nancy Ajram under fire for banning rainbow flags at concertArsonist targeted Lithuanian gay director in a possible homophobic attackTom Daley wears rainbow pin while accepting silver medal in RussiaRead the full article on Gaystarnews:  :https://www.gaystarnews.com/article/naked-dancer-rainbow-paint/ Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading…last_img read more

She said in medical practice, department administration and collaboration on projects, people need to be cognoscente of bias they have engrained by culture for which they may not even be aware.She showed a slide of the AAPM membership makeup by generation and said members need to keep in mind the way each generation thinks and communicates varies by their generation’s life experience and upbringing. McCollough said understanding these differences can help bridge perceived gaps in communication. Find more news and videos from AAPM.

The idea is to improve workflow and allow the tech to remain at the bedside longer to be with the patient, rather tucked away in a remote control room using an intercom.The entire system is built into the gantry seen here, so there is no need for extra equipment in a closet, cabinet or server tower.It comes in a 128 slice configuration with 4 cm of anatomical coverage per rotation.It uses the Stellar detector and tin filtration to eliminate low energy photons and help lower dose. It can be programmed to aid workflow by automatically removing bone, create cured planar reconstructions, lung CAD and other post-processing features so more time can be spent on reading scans. The scanner also comes with a HeartFlow FFR-CT starter pack.Find more information on this system in these related articles:New Cardiovascular CT Technology Entering the MarketNew Technology Highlights on the ACC 2019 Exhibit Floor Radiology Business | August 02, 2019 VIDEO: Key Topics for Radiology Administrators at AHRA 2019 Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) President Chris Tomlinson, CRA, FAHRA, and President-elect Jacqui Rose, CRA, FAHRA, discuss some of the most important clinical topics at the 2019 AHRA Annual Meeting and how the association plans to help its members embrace technological change in the coming years.

He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes.

But he also stressed that North Korea has a new ace in the hole — a nuclear arsenal of its own.“Gone forever is the era when the United States blackmailed us with nukes; now the United States is no longer a source of threat and fear for us and we are the very source of fear for it,” he said in the speech, the text of which was broadcast on North Korean television.At a separate gathering held Sunday, Korean People’s Army Gen. Pak Yong Sik, who is believed to be the country’s new defense minister, said that if the United States does not abandon its hostile policies toward Pyongyang and provokes another war, the North is prepared to fight until “there would be no one left to sign a surrender document.”center_img 4 ways to protect your company from cyber breaches “It is more than 60 years since the ceasefire on (the) land, but peace has not yet settled on it,” he told the meeting, which included high-level officials, veterans and diplomats stationed in Pyongyang. “The past Korean War brought about the beginning of the downhill turn for the U.S., but the second Korean war will bring the final ruin to U.S. imperialism.”The anniversary brought a festive atmosphere to the capital, with citizens using the holiday not only to show their patriotic pride by laying flowers before statues of North Korea’s first president Kim Il Sung and his son, Kim Jong Il, but also to enjoy the warm summer weather at parks and ice cream stands.Copyright © The Associated Press.
