Albertas WritingonStone monument named UNESCO World Heritage SiteAlbertas WritingonStone monument named UNESCO World Heritage Site

first_imgOTTAWA — The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization has added Alberta’s Writing-on-Stone monument to its list of World Heritage Sites.The federal government says the designation, made at UNESCO’s annual meeting in Azerbaijan on Saturday, follows more than a decade of advocacy by Indigenous groups and the provincial government.The site, described as an “ancient and sacred cultural landscape where Indigenous peoples have created rock art for millennia,” is contained entirely within Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park.Known as Áísínai’pi (“it is pictured/written”) in Blackfoot, the site contains thousands of rock carvings and paintings, including some that chronicle historical events such as Indigenous People’s first contact with Europeans.It becomes Alberta’s sixth World Heritage Site, and the twentieth in Canada.Indigenous leaders and the federal and provincial environment ministers are among those praising the decision.The designation “provides the Blackfoot Confederacy a basis for its future generations as to the strength and truth of our continuing relationship to this land and to our traditions, ceremonies and cultural practices,” Blackfoot elder Martin Heavy Head said in a statement.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Diamond smuggling scandal spotlights shadowy Israeli tycoonDiamond smuggling scandal spotlights shadowy Israeli tycoon

first_imgTEL AVIV, Israel — A shadowy Israeli billionaire who made his fortune in the insular world of diamonds has suddenly found his empire in jeopardy after close associates were busted in a massive smuggling ring and an employee mysteriously plummeted to her death from his high-rise Tel Aviv office building.Lev Leviev, known in Israel as the “king of diamonds,” has enjoyed close ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin and has a reputation for generous philanthropy to Jewish causes.But now, Israeli police are demanding that he return from Moscow for questioning on allegations of smuggling, money laundering and tax offences.It’s a stunning downturn for one of Israel’s most well-known tycoons — and a precursor to a wave of Jewish oligarchs from the former Soviet Union who have become power brokers in Israel.Aron Heller, The Associated Presslast_img read more

King Mohammed VI to Visit Nigeria and Zambia in Early DecemberKing Mohammed VI to Visit Nigeria and Zambia in Early December

Rabat – After his official visits to Ethiopia and Madagascar, King Mohammed VI will continue his African tour by paying a visit to Nigeria and Zambia in early December, according to Le360.The same source added that the King’s official visits were recently arranged during a talk between the King and officials from both Nigeria and Zambia.Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari tweeted last week that he is “grateful to King Mohammed VI for the heartfelt welcome and hospitality” he received during his visit to Morocco to take part in the twenty second Conference of the Parties (COP22), which concluded November 18 in Marrakech. “I arrived in Morocco amid a warm welcome and tomorrow I will give Nigeria’s speech at the COP22 high-level segment,” Buhari said.The King’s visit to Nigeria will enhance a bilateral cooperation between the two countries, especially regarding the sectors of agriculture and solar energy.Besides the economic aspect of the visit, Morocco’s seeks to prompt Nigeria to reconsider its stance on the Western Sahara. Nigeria has been a vocal supporter of the Polisario, and is regarded as belonging to the axis Algeria-Abuja-Pretoria. Nigeria recognizes the self-proclaimed Sarahawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR).Morocco World News reported earlier this year that Sokoto State in Nigeria revealed “a new agriculture and solar energy collaboration between Rabat and Abuja, “noting that “Morocco has distinguished itself in some critical sectors, as such a relationship between the two states will be of utmost importance to the two parties.”In the same context, Minister Delegate of Foreign Affairs, Nasser Bourita, met with Muhammadu Buhari on July 15, 2016 to discuss the opening of an OCP fertilizer factory in Nigeria.Following the formal request of the King during the 27th Summit of the African Union (AU) held last July in Kigali, Rwanda to rejoin the AU, the King’s visit will give a fresh impetus to regain its natural seat in the pan-African organization following Morocco’s withdrawal from it in 1984. That decision was fueled by the AU’s decision to accept the self-proclaimed SADR as a full-fledged member state.King Mohammed VI arrived Saturday evening in Madagascar’s capital of Antananarivo, aiming to consolidate South-South partnership and embark on bilateral cooperation underpinned by groundbreaking economic projects.The King is set to take part in the 16th summit of the Francophonie, which will take place November 22-27 in Antananarivo. read more

Amazon Canada to hire additional 200 workers at Toronto officeAmazon Canada to hire additional 200 workers at Toronto office

TORONTO — Amazon Canada plans to hire 200 more workers at its headquarters in Toronto including for positions in software development, engineering, programming, marketing and sales and human resources.Tamir Bar-Haim, the country manager for the Amazon Media Group, said e-commerce, technology and the Internet are still in their infancy.“We feel there is still so much room to invent on behalf of the customer,” Bar-Haim said.“That’s how we feel about our business in Canada. There is still so much room left to grow.”Amazon employs 3,500 people across Canada at its offices and distribution centres including 600 full-time workers at its downtown Toronto headquarters.A spokesperson for Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, who was at the Amazon office for the announcement, said the province has not provided the company any subsidies, grants or tax breaks.Wynne told reporters following the media event that Ontario’s ability attract a company like Amazon shows that there is a large pool of highly-trained workers in the province.“There is no doubt that some of the uncertainty we’re feeling in the economy, some of the uncertainty we’re feeling globally, has to do at least in part, with technology,” she said.“But we have a choice at this point, we can either choose to be concerned and we can retrench and say we’re not going to take part in that and we’re going to have to follow those changes or we can take a leadership role. We are choosing to take a leadership role in Ontario because we have the talent, we have the capacity in our education system, we are ready to play that leadership role.”— With files from Jessica Smith CrossFollow @LindaNguyenTO on Twitter. read more

BC government approves permits for controversial Red Chris MineBC government approves permits for controversial Red Chris Mine

The Red Chris Mine site, shown in a handout photo, in northwestern British Columbia has received a full operating permit from the provincial government. THE CANADIAN PRESS/ho-B.C. Government-Daniel Henshaw B.C. government approves permits for controversial Red Chris Mine VANCOUVER – A gold and copper mine in northwestern British Columbia that still faces angry opposition from its neighbours in Alaska has received approval for a full operating permit from the provincial government.B.C. Minister of Energy and Mines Bill Bennett announced Friday that the Red Chris Mine, owned by Imperial Metals (TSX:III), will soon be in full production, despite environmental concerns from First Nations, environmental groups and Alaskans, who are downstream from the mine site.Those worries were magnified last summer, when a tailings pond collapsed at the Mount Polley mine, another Imperial Metals-owned mine in interior B.C.Bennett said he’s confident the Red Chris Mine, located about 130 kilometres from the Alaska border, won’t experience a similar breach because the tailings storage facility has undergone three independent reviews.He noted the mine has operated successfully for months on a temporary permit while officials monitored the facility.“I have no doubt … that (waste) water is going to be managed carefully, and in such a way that people downstream, including our neighbours in Alaska, can have confidence that we’re doing everything that any responsible jurisdiction should do,” he said.Heather Hardcastle, a commercial fisherman and spokeswoman for Alaska-based group Salmon Beyond Borders said she’s still worried the mine could unleash heavy metals and acidic drainage into the waters, impacting Alaska’s multi-billion dollar fishing and tourism industries.The problem is that the government of Alaska hasn’t been involved in assessing or approving mining projects in northwestern B.C., where mine run-off flows into Alaskan waters, she said.“We have no voice and B.C. has no accountability. And we’re taking on all of the risks and receiving none of the benefits,” Hardcastle said.Alaskans aren’t anti-mining, she added, but people are concerned about how many projects are currently underway in the pristine region.“We’re talking about a scale and scope of mining activity that’s never been seen before in a place that’s this valuable when it comes to salmon and clean water,” Hardcastle said.A representative for Alaska does have a seat at the table when it comes to many meetings on B.C. mining, said Bennett.The minister noted that there is work to be done between Alaska and B.C., and said he would like to see a memorandum of understanding on mining between the two governments.Another group which initially opposed the Red Chris Mine is now part of the project.Members of the Tahltan First Nation set up a blockade at the mine last summer following the Mount Polley tailings pond collapsed, spilling millions of cubic metres of water and mine slurry into local waterways.The First Nation later instigated an environmental review of the Red Chris Mine, and in April signed on to co-manage it with Imperial Metals.“From here on our environmental oversight role — an important part of our agreement — will also start to expand,” Tahltan Central Council President Chad Day said in a news release.He added that expanding the mine to full capacity will create jobs and bring other benefits to the First Nation.Bennett, too, said mining in B.C. helps bolster the province’s economy.Getting permits to build mines should be difficult, he said, but the province. needs to be competitive when it comes to attracting mining companies.“We had Mount Polley, it happened, it was terrible. It happened once in 150 years. We have to make sure it doesn’t happen again,” he said. ‘But I think it would be a serious mistake to think that you can’t mine safely in B.C. Because I’m convinced you can.” by Gemma Karstens-Smith, The Canadian Press Posted Jun 19, 2015 12:17 pm MDT Last Updated Jun 19, 2015 at 6:23 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Whats Happened To The Green Bay PackersWhats Happened To The Green Bay Packers

Three years ago at about this time, the Green Bay Packers were coming off a Super Bowl victory and embarking on a landmark season. They’d eventually become only the sixth team in NFL history to win 15 or more regular-season games. And while Green Bay’s campaign ended on a sour note, with an upset loss to the New York Giants in the divisional playoffs, the Packers had already won Super Bowl XLV with their current core of players (including the ever-coveted elite quarterback in Aaron Rodgers) and seemed poised to contend for even more over the next five to 10 years.But since the end of the 2011 regular season, the Packers have won 21 games, lost 17 and tied once (including the postseason), a record that would be a toss-up to make the playoffs most years. They went through a seven-game stretch without Rodgers last season, during which the team went 2-4-1. But even with Rodgers at the helm over the past three seasons, the Packers have won just 19 of his 31 starts — only good for about 9.8 wins per 16 games. That includes a 1-2 start to current season and the 19-7 egg they laid Sunday against the Detroit Lions.So, what happened? The Packers had used a historically great passing game to paper over other weaknesses. But Green Bay’s passing game hasn’t been elite this season. The luster is gone.The Lions have shown all the earmarks of a good defense in the early going this season, but it’s hard to imagine an offensive group as talented as the Packers mustering just 147 net passing yards and a measly 223 total yards against Detroit. The Lions combined outstanding run defense (Green Bay’s rushing plays cost them a staggering 10.37 expected points, according to with opportunistic pass-rushing (they only pressured Rodgers five times per Pro Football Focus’s numbers but had two drive-killing third-down sacks). Detroit also limited Green Bay “explosives” (none of their 51 plays gained more than 18 yards), holding the once-vaunted Packers’ offense to a single touchdown.Even when Green Bay was at their best in 2011, they relied heavily on Rodgers and the passing game. The Packers posted the league’s top record and second-best point differential despite a defense that allowed the most passing yards in NFL history and a running game that was little better than average on a per-play basis. Rodgers earned MVP honors by spearheading the league’s best aerial attack in a season that rewrote the passing sections of the NFL record book.According to a Value Over Replacement Player (VORP) score I created based on Pro Football Focus’s player grades, Rodgers accounted for a larger proportion of his team’s total value than any of the other popular MVP candidates in 2011.But this year, Green Bay is scoring only 18 points per game, and Rodgers ranks just 18th among qualified quarterbacks in adjusted net yards per attempt (ANY/A) thus far. Granted, that number has come against an above-average slate of pass defenses — headlined by the Legion of Boom opening night — but he’s still only 10th in the league if we use the ANY/A allowed by each opponent last year to set up an expected level of performance in each game.Rodgers’s completion percentage is down — despite settling for shorter completions than in the past — and he’s also taking more sacks. But it’s not all the QB’s fault. In 2011, he had a pair of very good wide receivers in Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson; this year, Nelson has been tremendous and that’s about it. Randall Cobb, the Packers’ fourth wideout last year (by targets), has been pressed into No. 2 duty. The results haven’t been great. In PFF’s estimation, Nelson and tight end Andrew Quarless have been Rodgers’s only above-average targets so far.And the Packers’ running game has provided even less support than usual, ranking 29th in the NFL if we sum and normalize their PFF rushing and run-blocking grades. You don’t need fancy stats to see they’re also averaging 3.6 yards per carry, despite running an array of draws and delays in an attempt to capitalize on the respect afforded Rodgers and the passing game.It’s still quite early to definitively boot the Packers out of the Super Bowl contender pool, but their Elo rating (1481) is below the league-average of 1,500 — the lowest it’s been since losing to a formerly winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers squad in Week 9 of the 2009 season. Rodgers and company rallied from that loss to win seven of their next eight games to close out the regular season, but it remains to be seen whether this Packers team has a similar recovery in it. read more

Job creation is the single greatest challenge facing Guyana – GouveiaJob creation is the single greatest challenge facing Guyana – Gouveia

…much more needs to be done to foster investor confidence The Private Sector Commission (PSC) Governance and Security Sub Committee Chairman, Captain Gerry Gouveia believes that the creation of jobs is the single greatest challenge facing Guyana, and the various stakeholders; especially Government, can do more for the thousands of graduates from the University of Guyana (UG).Gouveia made these comments during the 25th Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the PSC at the Marriott International Hotel late last week.PSC Governance and Security Sub-committee Chairman, Captain Gerry GouveiaHe said this was a reality in Guyana, noting that hundreds would form lines outside the US Embassy daily, hoping to secure a better life elsewhere. “We have thousands of persons graduating from the UG annually and they can’t find jobs,” noted Gouveia.According to Gouveia, while “a good life” was promised, such a life must be created together. He noted that although governments do not create jobs per se, they were responsible for creating an enabling environment that would bring investors to the respective country.“The leaders in Guyana – the political, Private Sector, church and even youth leaders – every day, we must work hard to create, enhance and foster investor confidence, both local and foreign. And I daresay we are not doing a good job.”He said the promise of job creation remained an elusive dream, and that must end and be replaced with actual moves to attract investor confidence to Guyana.Meanwhile, Gouveia, who is also Chairman of the Roraima Group of Companies, said that any change of government should not in any way affect the continuation of investment in Guyana.He said the relationship between Government and the Private Sector should be laid on the platform that was set up by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB). He recalled that the IDB had brought some 50 consultants into the country to work with the Private Sector and establish a working relationship.

Maintaining tradition Trump declares March IrishAmerican Heritage MonthMaintaining tradition Trump declares March IrishAmerican Heritage Month

first_imgMaintaining tradition, Trump declares March ‘Irish-American Heritage Month’ It’s not a particularly old tradition. In fact, it barely predates Lethal Weapon 3. By Daragh Brophy 18,713 Views The Irish-related celebrations in the White House, of course, will culminate with the traditional shamrock ceremony as Trump welcomes Enda Kenny to Washington later this month for St Patrick’s Day.There have been calls for Kenny to boycott the event this year – and in recent days former Maryland Governor and Democrat White House hopeful Martin O’Malley added his voice to criticism of the planned ceremony, calling on his fellow Irish-American politicians to stay away.O’Malley said it was “not a time to be giving bowls of shamrock and tricolour lapel pins to white supremacists with Irish surnames” – a reference to President Trump’s controversial advisor, Steve Bannon.Speaking on Morning Ireland, O’Malley described Trump’s immigration policies as “evil”.US “immigrant internment camps” were already “the largest in the free world,” he said. “When this happens the only thing that’s needed for success is for good people not to stand up.”Read: Leo Varadkar is the first minister to say Trump shouldn’t be invited to Ireland>Read: Minister tells Trump’s security advisor: ‘This travel ban has damaging consequences’ > Source: Sean Spicer/Twitter Thursday 2 Mar 2017, 10:39 AM Trump meets Michael Noonan at Shannon Airport in 2014. Source: Niall CarsonDONALD TRUMP HAS declared the month of March Irish-American Heritage Month – in keeping with a tradition that dates back to the days of … George Bush Senior.Congress proclaimed March as Irish-American Heritage Month back in 1991, and the President issues a proclamation marking the occasion each year.In the weeks since the Republican took office, the Trump White House has come in for criticism over the range of content on its social media accounts and official website  – notably, over the removal of all Spanish-language content in the first few days of the administration. Irish-American news outlet Irish Central had clearly been keeping a close eye on the White House in relation to the heritage month announcement, and ran a story yesterday noting that Trump had ‘failed to recognise’ the month.The month, the site said, had historically been launched on the last day of February. However, it seems Trump’s predecessor may have occasionally slipped up when observing that tradition – Barack Obama’s 2012 announcement was made on 1 March. Others announcements from Obama were made on either 28 or 29 February. Share175 Tweet Email4 center_img Whoops!

Greek police look at whether former bikie boss car bomb was orderedGreek police look at whether former bikie boss car bomb was ordered

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Greek police interviewed former Commancheros bikie boss Amad “Jay” Malkoun following a car bomb that targetted him in the upmarket suburb of Glyfada.The police are examining whether the attack that took place on Monday morning was ordered from Australia.The daylight hit took place outside Mega Gym where Malkoun works out every day. He went to the gym after taking his children to school. His white Mercedes with Australian registration exploded just after he started the ignition.Forensic reports showed traces of dynamite under the wheel that has lead the police to believe that somebody may have been following Malkoun prior to the bombing. CCTV footage of the crime scene is being investigated.The explosion caused damage to cars around the Mercedes, however Malkoun was dragged to safely and survived the attack though he is in a serious condition following two surgeries.The explosion happened at the same gym where notorious Sydney gangland figure John Macris had worked out before he was executed in October 2018. He had been gunned down in the same suburb and left behind his wife, former playmate model and reality TV star Viktoria Karida, and two children. Police have yet to rule out a connection between the two attacks.Unlike Macris, Malkoun had no visible business interests in Greece and there is still yet no known link between the two apart from the coincidence of the location and criminal background.last_img read more

Its scarves and soldiers in August 2016s SQUADRON Loot Anime crateIts scarves and soldiers in August 2016s SQUADRON Loot Anime crate

first_imgFor a country that can’t have its own military in the strictest sense, Japan loves anime about the military. It doesn’t even have to be about wartime drama or strategy on a realistic battlefield. It could be about high school girls engaging in varsity tank warfare. This month’s Loot Anime theme is SQUADRON, and it’s full of pseudo-military goodness.In terms of camo-wearing, rifle-hefting, saluting military things, the closest item in the crate is the phone charm, which looks like a set of dog tags. The rest of the crate is more about robots, magic, and general weirdness, but the theme still stands and the crate is still solid.The crate starts with two nice pieces of clothing. There’s an Anti-Magic Academy scarf in white, blue, and orange (the flag colors of the Republic of Portal) and a GATE t-shirt with the crest of the Empire.Gundam fans will be pleased by the inclusion of a Gundam Assault Kingdom trading figure. They’re not-quite-Gunpla figures about four-inches tall, with lots of articulation and decent detail for their size. I actually collected a couple before this crate; I already had Shining Gundam and Master Gundam from G-Gundam, and the crate added the Anti-Earth Union Group (A.E.U.G.) version of the RX-178 Gundam Mk. II.The crate also includes a manga, volume 1 of Arpeggio of Blue Steel, which is about a robotic fleet that blockades all the oceans of the world and the plucky sailors who fight it (and, of course, the android/AI who defects from the fleet to join them).That’s already a ton of stuff, but Loot Anime also threw in a paracord carabiner multi-tool thing from GATE. It’s not much of a multitool per se, basically just a bottle opener and a fixed-size wrench, but it’s still handy. Mostly for the bottle opener.last_img read more

first_imgSevilla have made it clear to AS Nancy that they will be receiving no share of the transfer fee from Clement Lenglet’s €35.9m move to BarcelonaThe French centre-back completed the move from Andalucia to Catalonia after he paid for his €35.9m release clause at the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) on July 12 in order to cancel his contract at Sevilla.While his former club Nancy are claiming that they are owned 10% of the fee, Sevilla are adamant that they will pay them nothing due to the fact that it was not a transfer.“There is no transfer,” a source close to Sevilla told ESPN FC.David Villa, SpainQuiz: How much do you know about David Villa?
