Atleo says Harpers promises falling flat

first_imgAPTN National NewsTen months after Prime Minister Stephen Harper promised the dawn of a new day with relations between First Nations and the federal government nothing has been done to back it up says the Assembly of First Nations.In a letter to Harper, AFN National Chief Shawn Atleo laments on the lack of the perceived progress made at a summit in January.  The goal of the meeting was to boost the prosperity and independence of First Nation peoples.With the AFN, Harper and members of his cabinet at the table, Atleo said at the time there appeared to be the potential for “real change” but it was agreed then the talks required a sincere follow-through to keep the wheels of progress turning.That hasn’t happened said Atleo.“At this point in time given the rate and pace of the follow up on key items, our January 2013 report will be disappointing,” wrote Atleo in the Oct. 24 letter to Harper. “Regrettably, there has been a loss of momentum and sense of frustration is being felt by the First Nation leadership.”Atleo said Harper promised to address several long-standing issues, including education, the implementation of treaties and economic development.“Actions are needed to build confidence,” he wrote. “Stripping aside blame and denial, the conditions speak for themselves. Families struggling under a myriad of health and social challenges, inadequate housing, youth deeply and disproportionally impacted by addictions and crime, growing statistics of our peoples missing, disposed and murdered.”He said First Nations are overwhelmed by unprecedented pressures on their lands and resources and “utterly lacking the capacity to effectively protect and advance their interests.”Atleo also wrote Aboriginal Affairs Minister John Duncan the same day, in a more detailed letter.He said in despite of the summit “your ministry has continued to proceed with its previous legislative and policy agenda, as if the commitments at the gathering to fully involve, to build genuine partnership, had not taken place.”Atleo said Duncan and Harper have failed to address each area of concern agreed upon at the summit.last_img read more

UN sends more food to hurricane victims in Central America

6 September 2007The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) has distributed a second consignment of aid to hungry residents in northern Nicaragua, where Hurricane Felix affected as many as 60,000 people with high winds that destroyed or damaged homes and commercial buildings. The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) has distributed a second consignment of aid to hungry residents in northern Nicaragua, where Hurricane Felix affected as many as 60,000 people with high winds that destroyed or damaged homes and commercial buildings. But despite the losses and hardship, humanitarian officials are relieved that Felix did not cause more damage during its trajectory through Nicaragua, Honduras and El Salvador. “Hurricane Felix had the potential to create enormous devastation and suffering for millions of people,” WFP Deputy Director Gordana Jerger said. “We are extremely fortunate. However, there is still a lot of urgent work to be done in helping those who were affected and we will need immediate financial assistance from our donors who have proven repeatedly that they are prepared to help.” An emergency WFP airlift of 4.5 metric tonnes of beans, rice, oil, fortified corn-soya blended food and cooking oil has arrived in the Nicaraguan coastal town of Bilwi (formerly Puerto Cabezas), which bore some of the worst of Hurricane Felix’s landfall on Tuesday. The food is enough to feed almost 900 people for 10 days and follows the distribution on Tuesday of 70 tonnes in Bilwi and Waspam, just hours after Felix struck. Road transport has been halted after a key bridge was washed away by the rain-swollen river. “We are only able to deliver assistance to the affected areas by air, sea or river,” WFP Country Director William Hart said. In Honduras, WFP staff in the capital city Tegucigalpa have distributed food to thousands of people who had gathered in shelters. Meanwhile, in El Salvador, WFP is still assessing Felix’s impact, especially in geographically vulnerable areas. “Because WFP has food stocks for its long-term projects in the area, we were able to respond with unusual speed,” Ms. Jerger said. “However, not only will these stocks have to be replenished, we will need international support for our operation in Nicaragua where people require assistance, not just in the short term, but also to rebuild their lives and homes in the coming months.” read more

Hudsons Bay near the bottom of list in cottonsourcing practices report says

Hudson’s Bay near the bottom of list in cotton-sourcing practices, report says by Linda Nguyen, The Canadian Press Posted Jun 7, 2016 11:06 am MDT Last Updated Jun 7, 2016 at 3:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – A report released Tuesday ranking the world’s largest cotton consumers on the basis of their sourcing practices has put Canada’s oldest retailer, Hudson’s Bay Company, near the bottom of the list.The study done for the World Wildlife Fund, Pesticide Action Network UK and Solidaridad examined whether 37 international companies used sustainable cotton sources and ranked them according to a number of factors, including the guidelines used to produce the cotton (organic, fair trade or recycled). It also looked at whether the companies had stated initiatives or policies on cotton farming.Hudson’s Bay (TSX:HBC), the only Canadian retailer on the list, had a total score of one out of a possible 19.5.The report said HBC’s low score did not necessarily indicate that it used unsustainable cotton, but rather reflected a lack of transparency on its practices. It also said the Toronto-based company did not publicize its policies or targets on cotton sources.Hudson’s Bay spokeswoman Tiffany Bourre said the retailer offers sustainable cotton under its private label and is looking for opportunities to grow in that area.“HBC also has stringent ethical sourcing guidelines in place to ensure the highest principles of sourcing and compliance,” Bourre wrote in an email.Keith Tyrell, the director of Pesticide Action Network, said the purpose of the report was to highlight the importance of sustainable cotton in terms of its impact on the environment and labour industry.“Brands and retailers have the ability to drive sustainable cotton demand through the requirements they set for their suppliers,” said the report. “These requirements can ensure that their products are not associated with unsafe or illegal labour practices or environmental damage.”Some of the biggest issues with cotton is the use of child labour and the overuse of harmful fertilizers and pesticides that can result in death.Tyrell said there’s always been a lot of attention given to unsavoury labour practices used in the creation of cotton with clothes and furniture, though he added cotton farming employs more people than the manufacturing industry does.The report estimates that there are 40 million cotton farmers in developing countries producing three quarters of the world’s cotton supply.“If companies really believe that the way cotton is produced is important to them, then they’ll switch,” he said. “At the moment, it seems like they don’t think it’s important. It’s about commitment.”Tyrell said cost can be a hurdle initially for a retailer to make changes to their supply chain, but he added that didn’t stop fast-fashion retailer H&M Group, which set a demanding target of sourcing organic and recycled cotton in the last few years.Topping the list was home furnisher Ikea Group, which scored 12 out of a possible 19.5 points, followed by fashion retailers C&A Global and H&M Group with nine points each.The report based its rankings on public information and also reached out to individual retailers information was not readily available. Some of the other companies ranked included Walmart, Foot Locker, Nike and Gap.Follow @LindaNguyenTO on Twitter. read more

UN envoy condemns Israels decision to continue settlement expansion in occupied West

He said he was also concerned about repeated efforts by a number of families to rebuild the Israeli outpost of Mitzpeh Avichai near Hebron in the Occupied West Bank.“Such moves raise legitimate questions about Israel’s long-term intentions,” said Nickolay Mladenov, the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, in a statement.Some Israeli ministers have called for the full annexation of the West Bank, or said that there should never be a Palestinian state, he added.This decision to expand Gilo comes only three weeks after the Middle East Quartet – the United States, the Russian Federation, the European Union and the UN – called on Israel to cease the policy of settlement construction and expansion, Mr. Mladenov said.He reiterated that settlements are illegal under international law, urging the Government of Israel to cease and reverse such decisions.“Continuing on the current trajectory entrenches a one-state reality of perpetual occupation and conflict that is incompatible with realizing the national aspirations of both peoples,” he said. read more

Buckeye defense honors Christian Bryant in win

Redshirt-senior safety C.J. Barnett (4) tackles an opponent during a game against Northwestern Oct. 5 at Ryan Field. OSU won, 40-30.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorEVANSTON, Ill. — After losing senior safety Christian Bryant to a broken ankle on the second-to-last play of the game against Wisconsin Sept. 28, the Ohio State football team (6-0, 2-0) came out against Northwestern with a purpose.“Do it for C.B.,” was the message junior linebacker Ryan Shazier had for the team, sophomore defensive end Noah Spence said.“He always comes out real energetic, but tonight I felt like he was doing it for Christian,” Spence said of Shazier. “The whole defense was and I felt like that pretty much propelled the defense to do amazing things.”Shazier, who switched his jersey from No. 10 to No. 2 in honor of Bryant, said it was hard playing without the Cleveland native.“It was emotional for me like the first quarter because, me having his number on, that was critical,” Shazier said. “But he’s one of the main guys I talk to when I’m out there. He’s on my side and just not seeing him out there, it was tough.”Without Bryant, the Buckeyes struggled to contain the Northwestern offense, giving up 437 total yards, including 343 through the air.Shazier said it took some time to adjust to the way Northwestern runs its offense.“Their tempo, their play calls, their players — they just have it all,” Shazier said. “Sometimes you just have to adjust and adapt and change it up. Some guys had to tighten up with what they were doing and we just keep going.”Redshirt-junior cornerback Bradley Roby said the use of two quarterbacks by Northwestern, senior Kain Colter and redshirt-junior Trevor Siemian, was challenging for OSU to cover.“It was very difficult, man,” Roby said. “They move them around a lot and they’re good athletes, Kain Colter’s a good athlete. Just keeping track of them and going back and forth with them is tough but we managed it.”Coach Urban Meyer said the OSU offense “put the (Northwestern) defense in some bad positions,” but added that Northwestern played a great game.“They’re well-coached, they don’t make mistakes and it’s all correct,” Meyer said. “They’ve got very, very good players, borderline great players at some positions and a scheme that’s hard to defend.”Redshirt-senior safety Corey “Pitt” Brown started and played most of the game in place of Bryant, the second time he has done so after starting against Buffalo.Bryant’s partner in the secondary, redshirt-senior safety C.J. Barnett, said Brown did a good job stepping in against a high-flying offense.“We missed Christian, but we had Corey (‘Pitt’) Brown coming in there, another senior leader, a great player,” Barnett said. “When one guy goes down, another guy steps up and Corey did a great job.”Roby agreed, Brown played well in Bryant’s place.“It made us play together even more because when a guy like that goes down, you’ve got to rally together and everybody’s got to step up,” Roby said. “I think ‘Pitt’ Brown did a good job of stepping in for Christian and every win from here on is for him.”Despite what Brown brings to the team, losing Bryant hurts, Roby said.“(Bryant) has a certain vibe to him, a certain swagger to him that he adds to the defense,” Roby said. “So without him, we had to bring it with the guys that (were) in. So I feel like we did a good job stepping up and we’re only going to get better from here.”At halftime, the Buckeyes trailed the Wildcats, 20-13, but Barnett said the players rallied together to pull off the comeback.“That’s what we work for. We go through too much work to let one just go,” Barnett said. “No matter what the score is, we’re always in it, we’re always fighting. That’s pretty much all I can tell you, man — we just never give up and keep fighting.”The team has a bye next week, which provides a chance to rest and recover from the stretch of six straight weeks with a game, Meyer said.“We’re going to rest our guys … We’re going to go Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday off, and I told them we’re going to be one of the most rested teams in the history of college football,” Meyer said.The Buckeyes are set to take to the field again Oct. 19 against Iowa at 3:30 p.m. in Columbus. The Hawkeyes (4-2, 1-1) average 29.7 points a game, almost 10 less than the Wildcats. read more

Ohio State mens hockey sweeps Canisius for 2nd and 3rd wins

OSU junior forward Nick Schilkey (7) during a game against Brock on Oct. 3 at the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Kaley Rentz / Asst. Sports DirectorAfter 120 minutes, 10 goals and 87 shots throughout the weekend, the Ohio State men’s ice hockey team now finds itself on a three-game winning streak after sweeping Canisius College by final scores of 4-1 and 6-4 on Friday and Saturday, respectively.The Buckeyes (3-7) saw goals from forwards Luke Stork, Matthew Weis, Anthony Greco and Brendon Kearney in Game 1 of the series, a game in which the Scarlet and Gray outshot the Golden Griffins (2-7, 2-2 Atlantic Hockey Association) 46-30.The only speed bump on Friday night was due to Griffins’ senior captain Ralph Cuddemi’s fourth goal of the season two minutes and 38 seconds into the third period.Kearney delivered a response with his first goal as a Buckeye with five minutes and 23 seconds remaining in the game, assisted by his freshman brethren in forwards Freddy Gerard and Dakota Joshua, who notched their first points as Buckeyes in the process.“When someone knocks on the door like that and scores a goal, a sign of a good team is to bounce back and get one right back,” OSU coach Steve Rohlik said. “Certainly we’re making some steps in the right direction.”Junior netminder Matt Tomkins got the nod to start the game, stopping 29 shots while his opposite in freshman Simon Hofley made 42 saves.In Game 2, the ice at the Schottenstein Center was seemingly replaced by a tennis court, as both teams traded blows back and forth throughout the contest.The first period was an offensive clinic, as five goals were scored. Cuddemi netted his second goal of the weekend three minutes and 29 seconds into the game. That was followed up with three OSU goals from forwards Mason Jobst, Weis and Nick Schilkey, before freshman defenseman Cameron Heath made it a 3-2 game at the 9:54 mark.OSU powered ahead 5-2 after two periods with goals coming from junior forward David Gust and senior captain Craig Dalrymple, but the Griffins wouldn’t go quietly, as third-period goals from forwards Daniel LaFontaine and Shane Conacher cut the Buckeye lead to one with eight minutes and 46 seconds remaining.“I don’t think there was any panic,” Dalrymple said. “On the bench, it was like, ‘OK let’s just buckle down, kill the rest of the period and we’ll win the game.’”Despite Canisius’ best efforts to tie the game, the Buckeye defense stood tall, and an empty net goal from Greco sealed the win and the sweep for the Scarlet and Gray at the 19:29 mark of the third.After managing just 12 goals in the seven losses that opened up the season, OSU has chalked up 15 goals in its last three home games.A big key to the recent spike in lamp-lighting has been crashing the net and simply getting pucks there.“Ever since the Mercyhurst series, we’ve hyped on getting guys going to the net,” Weis said after Game 2. “Today was a big part of everyone going to the net. Schilkey’s third goal doesn’t go in without Stork standing in front.”Special teams played a huge role as well.OSU’s power play went 3-of-6 on Saturday, while its penalty kill has successfully killed off the last 15 offenses committed, including six on Saturday.It proved to be at its strongest after OSU junior defenseman Josh Healey committed a five-minute major penalty and a received game misconduct for contact to the head in the first period of the second game.“The game puck went to our penalty kill,” Rohlik said. “We put ourselves in a bad position to take a five-minute penalty. That can be a turning point in a hockey game and our kill came up big.”The Buckeyes will now have another bye week to get set for a trip out to the University of Nebraska-Omaha to take on the No. 6-ranked Mavericks.Game times for both of those contests are set for 8:07 p.m. on Nov. 27 and 28. read more

TOMRA upgrades bulk samples at Novos Karratha gold project

first_imgNovo Resources has announced gold-rich assay results from concentrates generated by mechanical sorting trials conducted on four bulk samples from its Karratha gold project in Western Australia.In order to test the potential viability of mechanical rock sorting as a means of concentrating gold from conglomerates at Karratha, four bulk samples were collected, crushed, screened and tested using a TOMRA mechanical rock sorter. High-grade assays from sorted rock concentrates have provided a first indication that this technique is effective at upgrading gold into small volume concentrates.Mechanical sorting was conducted on material ranging from 6 to 63 mm. Fractions larger than 63 mm and finer than 6 mm are currently undergoing assaying and, once all analyses have returned, an assessment of the effectiveness of mechanical rock sorting will be made, Novo said.Mechanical rock sorted concentrates range from 0.07-0.48% of total sample mass, a remarkably small fraction. Given the high-grade assays of these concentrates, ranging from 92.1-792.4 g/t Au, it appears gold is being significantly upgraded by mechanical rock sorting, the company added.“Optimising crushing to reduce volumes of fines and oversize, effectively maximising the amount of material being sorted, should further improve the potential of this technology,” Novo said, adding that mechanical sorting technology could be a critical component of the Karratha gold project moving forward.Rob Humphryson, CEO and Director of the company, said: “Concentrate grades received from the recent TOMRA mechanical rock sorting trials are impressive, reflecting the capability of the scanning and sorting technology to differentially select gold bearing rock.“Total system gold recovery efficiency will be fully understood upon receipt of assay results from all process streams and feed size ranges, with these results expected during January 2019.”last_img read more

UCI agrees to strip Armstrong of his seven Tour titles

first_imgIn thi Lance Armstrong of the U.S. holds up the trophy on the podium July 25, 1999, after 20th and final stage of the Tour de France cycling race between Arpajon and Paris. GENEVA — Forget the seven Tour de France victories. Forget the yellow jersey celebrations on the Champs Elysees. Forget the name that dominated the sport of cycling for so many years.As far as cycling’s governing body is concerned, Lance Armstrong is out of the record books.Once considered the greatest rider in Tour history, the American was cast out today by his sport, formally stripped of his seven titles and banned for life for his involvement in what U.S. sports authorities describe as a massive doping program that tainted all of his greatest triumphs.“Lance Armstrong has no place in cycling and he deserves to be forgotten in cycling,” said Pat McQuaid, the president said of the International Cycling Union. “This is a landmark day for cycling.”McQuaid announced that his group, known as UCI, accepted sanctions imposed by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency and would not appeal them to the Court of Arbitration for Sport. McQuaid said he was “sickened” by some of the evidence detailed by USADA in its 200-page report and hundreds of pages of supporting testimony and documents.The condemnation by cycling’s most senior official confirmed Armstrong’s pariah status, after the UCI had backed Armstrong at times in trying to seize of the doping investigation from USADA. McQuaid said the UCI endorsed a life ban for Armstrong after almost two weeks studying the American agency’s evidence, and will meet Friday to discuss going after his 2000 Olympic bronze medal.last_img read more

Making The Perfect Playlist With GRAMMY U Members

first_imgFrom setting the mood to choosing the right artists, we ask college students around the country how they create their perfect playlistJennifer VelezGRAMMYs Nov 1, 2018 – 9:19 am Making the perfect playlist is an art. The mood has to be right, the songs have to flow and the name has to encapsulate it all. After all, a playlist is the soundtrack before a test, during a gym session or a on cross-country trip. Song to song, it needs to keep you in the moment.But what makes a perfect playlist? How to pick from so many artists to capture one kind of feeling? It’s clear music streaming companies have also put some thought into how to make the perfect playlist. As Spotify puts it, “Playlists are no longer just simple collections of songs. They’ve grown to become cultural epicenters, complete with their own communities.”As a group who engages with music the most, we asked some GRAMMY U members from different colleges across the country to figure out what constitutes a good playlist and how they put it all together.”Playlists are able to tell the world what collection of music defines your reality,” Chicago GRAMMY U Representative, Becca Zagorski, shares. “This becomes an artistic expression because it promotes expression through self-reflection for the creator and intrigue and discovery from the listener.”For Becca, it’s all about capturing a mood. Her “Fallish” playlist mood is a mix of pop hits and more obscure tracks that fit her theme. From Travis Scott’s “SICKO MODE” to Parquet Courts’ “Tenderness,” her playlist captures her own personal musical touch for songs with mass appeal at the time that she can eventually look back nostalgically.  “I create a playlist for each season that has songs that fit the mood of the time period combined with current popular songs,” she said. “That way when I go back and listen to those playlists, I can reminisce on the music that encapsulated that period of time in my life.”Florida GRAMMY U Rep Melanie McGrath uses artists from the past and present in her playlist, {h o w t o b e a woman}, to make a soundtrack that inspires her to be better in the present and future. Songs on her playlist include Maggie Rogers’ “Alaska,” Lorde’s “Greenlight” and girl band The Aces’ “Stuck.””It’s a playlist full of indie women artists who inspire me to be the best version of myself!” says Melanie. “Anytime I find an indie pop/folk/electronic song that makes me feel empowered as a young woman and a young songwriter, I add it.”To create her perfect playlist, GRAMMY U Rep Tristin from New Orleans, La., whose playlist includes everything from Kurt Vile’s “Pretty Pimpin” to Fleetwood Mac’s classic “Rhiannon,” envisions herself in the mood she wants to capture.”Once I got into that frame of mind, I was able to create what I feel like matched the mood and the setting of that scene, which for me is filled with folk, indie and alternative music,” Tristin says. “In order to make it more of an artistic expression, you have to really know what type of feeling you want the playlist to convey.”Whatever your goal, combining nostalgic songs with current viral favorites or bringing together specific artists before and during your time, or by focusing your thoughts on the feeling you want to create, your perfect playlist can be something that is truly only yours.Which Women Musicians Do You Think Are The Most Influential Of This Century?Read more How To Make The Perfect Playlist making-perfect-playlist-grammy-u-members News Making The Perfect Playlist With GRAMMY U Members Facebook Email Twitter last_img read more

Indian anchor reads report of husbands death live

first_imgIndian anchor reads report of husband`s death live An Indian television presenter has been praised for her calmness and bravery after reading out a breaking news report of a road accident which killed her husband.Supreet Kaur was presenting a news bulletin on the IBC-24 news channel in Chhattisgarh state on Saturday when a reporter phoned in live with details of an accident which killed three of the five people travelling in an SUV.The report did not name the victims. But Kaur, 28, realised her husband was probably among those killed as he was travelling on the same route and at the same time with four others, the channel’s news chief Anshuman Sharma told AFP.“When the reporter said all the victims were from Bhilai and were travelling in a Renault Duster, she immediately had a hunch her husband had died in the crash.”Kaur nevertheless kept her composure. Only when the bulletin was over did she rush from the studio to confirm her fears.“She is an extremely brave woman. She has been with us for the last nine years. We are really proud of her,” said Sharma of Kaur, who was married two years ago.Social media users heaped praise on Kaur, calling her a hero.“Salute Supreet’s strength in dealing with her husband’s demise with extraordinary bravery & professionalism,” tweeted the state chief minister Raman Singh.“Supreet Kaur: Salute.
