John Murray APTN National NewsAfter schedule changes and delays, the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG) is set to begin hearings Tuesday in a community along the so-called Highway of Tears in B.C.Smithers sits halfway between Prince George and Prince Rupert along Hwy. 16, named the Highway of Tears because of the number of Indigenous women who have vanished or have been found dead along it.One of those women is Tamara Chipman, 22, who disappeared in 2005.Her aunt, Gladys Radek, has walked the highway every year for the last seven years.The final day of Gladys’ walk is Monday which takes her into Smithers.Chief Commissioner Buller, and commissioners Robinson and Audette will be joining Gladys for the final segment of her walk.The second round of hearings were originally scheduled in Thunder Bay, Ont., but those hearings were moved to December.Hearings in Saskatoon, and Rankin Inlet, Nunavut have also been postponed.Delays, rescheduling, and high-level resignations have dogged the inquiry since it was announced in August 2016.Recently the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs, Southern Chiefs’ Organization, Assembly of First Nations Manitoba, and Manitoba Keewatinowi Okimakanak voiced concerns and called for a Manitoba subcommission led by a Manitoban.While speaking to a Senate committee lead Buller cited restraints imposed by government policy and procedure contributed to delays, and she plans on asking for more time.Indigenous-Crown Relations Minister Carolyn Bennett told APTN National News that the government will consider an extension when the plan is formally requested.An interim report is due in November and a final report expected December 2018.Contact John here: firstname.lastname@example.org

by Crystal Laderas Posted Feb 29, 2016 2:09 pm MDT Alberta Transportation will tackle Uber issues AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Transportation Minister Brian Mason announced a plan to develop a reasonable framework for ride-for-hire companies such as Uber, which vowed to stop service in the province by Tuesday if the government didn’t support its proposed insurance framework.“Our plan ensures customers who use ride-for-hire services are safe, that the people who transport have the necessary skills and knowledge, and that there is insurance in place in the event of an accident,” states Mason in a news release.The province says by July 1, it will have an interim insurance product ready to provide coverage for Uber drivers and passengers. It says drivers will need at least a Class 4 licence, which is mandatory in most provinces for taxis and other commercial transportation services. The government also says all drivers will need to undergo a police background check.Uber launched in Calgary last October, despite the City of Calgary not having the regulations in place to allow the company to operate. The city won an injunction against drivers last year, but the two agreed to work together on regulations.Last week, Uber announced it will not operate in Calgary because the city’s rules were too strict. The Uber mobile app is shown on a smartphone in an undated file photo. CITYNEWS

Urban Meyer speaks to the media during Ohio State’s football media day Aug. 11.When you hear “Ohio State” or “Michigan,” the rivalry and The Game are one of the first things that come to mind.Growing up in Ohio with OSU alumni in my family, I view The Game no differently. It’s the biggest rivalry in sports with the most intense fans, one that culminates at the end of the football regular season for two teams that want nothing more than to beat each other.Whether you’re a football fan or not, if you hail from Ohio or Michigan, you’re ready to cheer come time for The Game. The most dedicated fans can never waiver to the other side, even for reasons completely unrelated to football.You stick with your team and root for them to win, no matter what.But there are some things even bigger than the biggest rivalry in sports, and one of those things is cancer.When Grant Reed, then 11 years old, now 12 years old, was diagnosed with cancer, he used the rivalry as his motivation to beat the disease, which kept him in the hospital for weeks at a time. Both of Reed’s parents are OSU alumni and former marching band members, so being a Buckeye was something Reed was born into.That’s why Reed decided to name his brain tumor “Michigan.”And then he beat it.Last December, when OSU football coach Urban Meyer found out about Reed’s creative choice in naming his tumor, he visited Reed at Nationwide Children’s Hospital while Reed was still undergoing treatment. Since The Game takes place in Ann Arbor, Mich., this year, Meyer wasn’t able to offer Reed tickets to the game.That’s where Michigan football coach Brady Hoke came in.When Hoke heard about Reed’s tumor, he felt the need to reach out to the young Buckeye fan.“Well I think as a father and a parent, we’re glad in this instance that he beat Michigan, and that’s probably the only time I’ll say it,” Hoke said. “But that’s important, it’s important for us, we’ve got a great, unbelievable opportunity to help kids and help people understand.”He said this was an obvious case where something was more important than the rivalry.“This is a great rivalry, the greatest there is, it’s competitive, and it’s passionate,” Hoke said. “But at the end of the day there’s a heck of lot more things more important than those rivalries.”As I am not a parent, I can’t relate to Hoke’s reasoning for reaching out to Reed in that aspect. But as a human being, you can’t help but feel Hoke’s compassion and the compassion coming from Buckeyes and Wolverines elsewhere.Hoke gave Reed and his family four tickets to come watch the Buckeyes and the Wolverines face off on Nov. 30.Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner agreed that this opportunity wasn’t something the Wolverines and coach Hoke could pass up.“That’s great on the part of coach Hoke. The rivalry is so big, what he’s fighting is so much bigger,” Gardner said. “If what he needs to do is name his deal “Beat Michigan,” I fully support it. But when he comes to The Game, I don’t support that in any way.”

New downtown Vancouver library offers resources, funThe whole third floor of Vancouver’s new main library is for kids of all ages, beginning with small bright-colored lights in the floor that young children like to follow.If you disembark from the elevator to the left, and turn left again, you’ll soon come to the Early Learning Center, specially designed and equipped for children 5 and younger, and their parents or other caregivers.You’ll find a wealth of play structures where young children can turn things, reach for things, peer through windows and generally play around.“It looks like a bright, beautiful playground, which is exactly the point,” says a library publication.“PLAY is the work of early childhood. The imagination-fueling play the ELC encourages gets children questioning and learning about the world around them, and finding inspiration for their innate curiosity and imagination. While they’re having fun engaging and exploring, they’re also developing pre-literacy skills critical for school readiness.”Even babies are given special images to focus on, and there are nooks for “crawlers” to explore and pull on, the publication says.The center also uses three-dimensional letters and numbers that these very young children learn to recognize — skills that will help prepare them for school and reading.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, CDCThis illustration depicts a three-dimensional (3D) computer-generated image of a group of Gram-negative, Haemophilus influenzae, bacteria.A 16-year-old from Guatemala died of complications of the flu while in U.S. Border Patrol custody, according to preliminary autopsy findings, alarming doctors who questioned whether immigration authorities missed warning signs or chances to save his life.Carlos Hernandez Vasquez contracted bacterial infections in addition to the flu, as well as sepsis, which can lead to tissue damage and organ failure, according to a report released by Hidalgo County authorities this week. He died May 20. A full autopsy is pending.Carlos is the sixth child in the last year to die after U.S. border agents detained him, and the second known to have died of the flu, after 8-year-old Felipe Gómez Alonzo died on Christmas Eve.As border apprehensions of migrant families surge to historic highs, the Trump administration’s treatment of migrant children and the detention of families in overcrowded facilities has come under harsh criticism. The administration is asking Congress for $4.5 billion to respond to the surge of families, but Congress has yet to act.Flu deaths among children are rare in the U.S. The number of annual flu-related deaths in kids has bounced from 37 to 186 since the 2004-2005 flu season, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Doctors usually expect the youngest children, not teenagers, to be more at risk of severe complications and death from flu.“Flu is uncommon at this time of the year,” said Dr. Dawn Nolt, an infectious diseases expert at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland, Oregon. “That someone died of flu is certainly something to be very worried about.”Two doctors said they were alarmed by what’s known about the Border Patrol’s response to Carlos’ illness.Carlos was detained for six days at the Border Patrol’s South Texas processing center, a converted warehouse where 1,500 or more migrants are often kept in large cages formed by chain-link fencing.The Border Patrol says Carlos reported on May 19 that he was not feeling well and was diagnosed with the flu by a nurse practitioner. He was prescribed the medicine Tamiflu, then transferred to the Border Patrol station at Weslaco, Texas, to prevent his flu from spreading to other detainees. He was not hospitalized. The next day, he was found unresponsive in his cell.“By the time you’re 16 years old, you have great immunity, and you shouldn’t be dying so quickly,” said Dr. Nizam Peerwani, the Tarrant County medical examiner in Fort Worth, Texas, and an adviser for the advocacy group Physicians for Human Rights.Peerwani said Carlos’ rapid deterioration raised questions about whether he may have had potential symptoms including a fever, body aches, or breathing trouble before the Border Patrol says he reported being sick.He should have been taken to a medical facility or clinic instead of remaining in detention, Peerwani said.Dr. Julie Linton, co-chair of the American Academy of Pediatrics’ immigrant health special interest group, also said the prescription of Tamiflu may not have been enough treatment, especially since the medicine works best in the first two to three days of illness. While Carlos’ illness was discovered the day before his death, he may have sick well before then, she said. “We cannot treat Tamiflu as a substitute for the other care that is required,” Linton said.Doctors who treat the flu rely on a patient telling them how long they’ve had symptoms. Linton pointed out that the processing center where Carlos was detained has the lights on 24 hours a day, which may have made it difficult for him to know how long he had been sick.After Carlos’ death, the Border Patrol found that 32 migrants tested positive for the flu at the same processing center. The agency said it quarantined the sick people and briefly stopped intake at the processing center so cleaning crews could sanitize it.U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the Border Patrol’s parent agency, declined to respond to questions about what measures it was taking to protect detained migrants from the flu.Both Carlos and Felipe, the 8-year-old who died on Christmas Eve, were detained by the Border Patrol longer than the three days normally allowed by U.S. law and CBP guidelines. Felipe was initially hospitalized but released and returned to a Border Patrol highway checkpoint with his father until he fell sick again.After the December deaths of Felipe and 7-year-old Jakelin Caal Maquin, CBP ordered medical assessments of all minors in Border Patrol custody, as part of a directive to “enhance the protection of individuals in its custody.”In Carlos’ case, the Border Patrol has said it had requested he be placed in a long-term detention facility for children. But children are routinely held by Border Patrol for longer than three days because the long-term facilities for children are themselves at or above capacity.___AP Medical Writer Carla K.

in Daily Dose, Headlines, News, Origination Share October 31, 2016 555 Views The pace of home sales has risen over the last two years partly due to the re-emergence of first-time buyers and single women, two segments that had been largely absent from the homebuying market prior to two years ago, according to the National Association of Realtors’ annual Profile of Homebuyers and Sellers.The first-time buyer share reversed its course in the 2016 survey, rising to 35 percent, after three straight years of declines and after dropping to a near 30-year low of 32 percent in the 2015 survey (results represent only owner-occupied homes). According to NAR, approximately 61 percent of first-time buyers were under age 35. The median age of first-time buyers was 32 in the 2016 survey, equaling the highest in the NAR survey’s 35-year history set back in 2006. The average annual income of first-time homebuyers was $72,000, approximately a 4 percent increase from last year.“Young adults are settling down and deciding to buy a home after what was likely a turbulent beginning to their adult life and career following the Great Recession,” NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun said. “Demand increased over the past year because of a robust job market for those with a college degree and renter fatigue at a time when homeowners continue to see their equity rise. These factors were why more first-time buyers (67 percent) said a desire to own a home of their own was the primary reason for their purchase (64 percent in 2015; 53 percent in 2014).”While the rise in first-time buyer share is encouraging, the 35 percent reported for 2016 is still well below historical averages. The long-term average of first-time buyers over the survey’s history is 40 percent. The homeownership rate for 18- to -35-year-olds is still hovering near its historic low due to several factors, mainly home price appreciation outpacing wages in many markets, difficulty of saving for a down payment as rents rise, and student loan debt.“First-timers’ ability to enter the market more convincingly over the next year greatly depends on supply improvements at the lower end of the market and if wages can finally awaken from their sluggish pace of growth,” Yun said.Though married couples comprised two-thirds of all buyers (66 percent) and had the highest annual income ($99,200), this year’s survey saw the share of single female buyers rise from 15 percent to 17 percent (the highest share since 18 percent in 2011).As in year’s past, married couples once again made up the largest share of buyers (66 percent) and had the highest income ($99,200). However, the survey revealed that single women made up more of the buyer pie than in recent years (based on household composition). After falling to 15 percent of buyers a year ago, which tied the lowest share since 2002, single females represented 17 percent of total purchases (highest since 2011 at 18 percent).“Despite having a much lower income ($55,300) than single male buyers ($69,600), female buyers made up over double the amount of men (7 percent),” said Yun. “Single women for years have indicated a strong desire to own a home of their own, as well as an inclination to live closer to friends and family. With job growth holding steady and credit conditions becoming somewhat less stringent than in past years, the willingness and opportunity to buy is becoming more feasible for many single women.”The median repeat buyer age was 53, up from 52 last year, and the median income was $98,000, down slightly from last year ($98,700).According to the NAR, down payment sizes remained largely unchanged from last year (6 percent for first-time buyers and 14 percent for repeat buyers). Approximately 59 percent of buyers financed their loan with a conventional mortgage, and one third of first-time buyers (33 percent) used a low-down payment FHA-insured mortgage—a number that has fallen significantly in the last five years (from 54 percent in 2011).Approximately 93,000 recent homebuyers answered the NAR’s 132-question survey on preferences, motivations, plans, experiences, and demographics in July 2016.

facebook fair housing HUD 2018-08-17 David Wharton HUD Levels Housing Discrimination Complaint Against Facebook in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, journal, News The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced on Friday that they were filing a formal complaint against Facebook for violating the Fair Housing Act by allowing landlords and home sellers to use its advertising platform to engage in housing discrimination.HUD claims Facebook enables advertisers to control which users receive housing-related ads based upon the recipient’s race, color, religion, sex, familial status, national origin, disability, and/or zip code. HUD alleges that Facebook then invites advertisers to express unlawful preferences by offering discriminatory options, allowing them to effectively limit housing options for these protected classes under the guise of “targeted advertising.” You can read the full complaint right here.“The Fair Housing Act prohibits housing discrimination including those who might limit or deny housing options with a click of a mouse,” said Anna María Farías, HUD’s Assistant Secretary for Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity. “When Facebook uses the vast amount of personal data it collects to help advertisers to discriminate, it’s the same as slamming the door in someone’s face.”The Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination in housing transactions including print and online advertisement on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, or familial status. HUD’s Secretary-initiated complaint follows the Department’s investigation into Facebook’s advertising platform which includes targeting tools that enable advertisers to filter prospective tenants or homebuyers based on these protected classes.HUD’s complaint alleges that Facebook’s platform violates the Fair Housing Act by enabling advertisers to, among other things:display housing ads either only to men or women;not show ads to Facebook users interested in an “assistance dog,” “mobility scooter,” “accessibility,” or “deaf culture”not show ads to users whom Facebook categorizes as interested in “child care” or “parenting,” or show ads only to users with children above a specified agedisplay/not display ads to users whom Facebook categorizes as interested in a particular place of worship, religion, or tenet, such as the “Christian Church,” “Sikhism,” “Hinduism,” or the “Bible”not show ads to users whom Facebook categorizes as interested in “Latin America,” “Canada,” “Southeast Asia,” “China,” “Honduras,” or “Somalia”draw a red line around ZIP codes and then not display ads to Facebook users who live in specific zip codesHUD also claims that Facebook promotes its advertising targeting platform for housing purposes with “success stories” for finding “the perfect homeowners,” “reaching home buyers,” “attracting renters,” and “personalizing property ads.”In addition, on Friday the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York filed a statement of interest, joined in by HUD, in U.S. District Court on behalf of a number of private litigants challenging Facebook’s advertising platform.This isn’t the first time critics have leveled complaints at Facebook’s ad practices. In 2017, ProPublica purchased dozens of rental housing ads on the site but specifically requested that they not be shown to a variety of groups protected under the federal Fair Housing Act. That act makes it illegal to run ads that indicate “any preference, limitation, or discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin.”The ads targeted men and women, aged 18-65, living in New York City, and highlighted categories such as “first-time buyer,” “house hunting,” and “buying a house.” However, ProPublica requested that their Facebook ads exclude a wide variety of groups, including “African Americans, mothers of high school kids, people interested in wheelchair ramps, Jews, expats from Argentina, and Spanish speakers.” According to ProPublica, all of the ads were approved by Facebook—most of them in five minutes or less.
