Project 529 bike registry system launches in Regina to combat bike theft

Related TROY FLEECE / Regina Leader-Post Bert Seidel, sales manager at Western Cycle Source for Sports, with his bike in Regina. Regina Police Service recently partnered with Project 529, a bike registration company, which Seidel recently joined. Summer 2019 shaping up to be a hot time for thefts Donated bikes stolen from locked container at Regina community school Bikes for donation stolen from Indigenous Christian Fellowship ‘a kick in the teeth’ If a registered bike is stolen, the owner can use Project 529’s accompanying app to notify other Project 529 members in a 15-kilometre radius of the theft. Anyone who thinks they saw the bike can instantly upload a message to police and the owner.On the flip side, if police come across someone riding a bike they think might be stolen, officers can search the number on the sticker — or simply a physical description of the bike if the sticker is missing — in the database to see if it is flagged as stolen.“(Bikes are) the one mode of transportation that every city in the world is excited about promoting, but it’s the one mode of transportation that they don’t require registration on, so we created a voluntary registration program and it kind of serves to bridge between the people that ride bikes, the people that make and sell bikes, and the police,” said Allard.The Regina Police Service Community Engagement Unit said in a Facebook post on Aug. 29 they had partnered with Project 529. No one from RPS was available for an interview Wednesday, as they are planning a news conference to announce the partnership next week.Living in Regina’s Rosemont Mount Royal neighbourhood, Tanner Piper said he has seen bike theft numbers in his area increase over the last couple of years, but he does not think a bike registry system will change this.He believes he has seen at least one person stealing bikes in his community who then sands off the serial number and swaps out parts with those from another bike.“These  guys are taking angle grinders to serial numbers that are engraved into bikes,” he said, noting that not even locked garages seemed to be deterring bike thefts.“(I don’t) think that stickers are going to be a big deterrent … It’s gotten to the point where if you like your bike, bring it inside.”lgiesbrecht@postmedia.com Working in a bike shop, Bert Seidel has heard a growing number of stories about bicycle thefts in Regina, and is hopeful a new registration program will deter thieves and help police return stolen cycles to their owners.“I had a customer who bought a bike from us on a Monday, and the bike was stolen out of his garage on Thursday,” said Seidel, sales manager at Western Cycle Source for Sports.“It’s insane. Especially at the beginning of spring and then usually towards the end of summer, it’s like we get a call almost once a day where people lost their bikes and want to see if we have the serial number on file.”With the Regina Police Service’s (RPS) recent partnership with Project 529 — a company that runs an international bike registry system — Seidel believes police will now be able to locate stolen bikes and identify the proper owner more easily.As an avid cyclist himself, Seidel has already registered his two bikes and sees the system as another useful tool to keep his bikes safe in addition to locking them up.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.Project 529 CEO J. Allard said people can register their bikes for free online. All they need is an email address, the bike’s make, model and serial number, and some photos of the bike and the owner. People can also choose to buy a “shield” — a sticker with their unique registration number on it, to deter thieves. read more

UN envoy welcomes Doha Declaration on support for developing countries

Anwarul K. Chowdhury, Under-Secretary-General and High Representative for the Least Developed Countries, Landlocked Developing Countries and Small Island Developing States, hailed the Doha Declaration, adopted by members of the Group of 77 and China at the conclusion of the Second South Summit in Doha late last week. The Declaration emphasized, among other things, the need to urgently meet the agreed Official Development Assistance (ODA) target of 0.7 per cent of donor countries’ GNI, and underscored the importance of strengthening the World Trade Organization (WTO) with special and differential treatment for developing countries, and the least developed countries (LDCs), in particular.While welcoming the outcome of the Summit, Mr. Chowdhury urged the international community to adopt an effective, comprehensive, equitable and development-oriented solution to debt problems, particularly through 100 per cent debt cancellation for the world’s poorest countries. The “G-77”, now numbering 132 member states, calls itself the largest Third World coalition in the UN system. The association provides the means for the developing world to articulate its collective economic interests and enhances its joint negotiating capacity on major international economic issues in the UN system, it says. It also promotes economic and technical cooperation among developing countries.The Summit in Doha focused on sustainable development in the countries of the South and alleviating poverty in least developed countries. The first South-South Summit was held in Havana, Cuba, five years ago. read more

Hospital patients sent home at weekend 40 per cent more likely to

first_img Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. The NHS is facing pressures fuelled by lack of funding for social care, charities sayCredit:Dominic Lipinski/PA old man hospital  The number of people aged 85 and over has risen by one third since 2000Credit:John Stillwell/PA  The head of the watchdog raised concerns that successive Governments had failed to face up to a mounting crisis. “I think this is one of the biggest social policy challenges of our time,” Mr Behan said, pointing out that none of the party leaders mentioned the issue during their party conference speeches.In the report, Mr Behan raised fears about care home closures, and the withdrawal of home care from those who need it.“We are becoming concerned about the fragility of the adult social care market, with evidence suggesting that it might be approaching a ‘tipping point,’” he writes.“The combination of a growing, ageing population, more people with long-term conditions and a challenging financial climate means increased need but reduced access. The result is that some people are not getting the help they need – which in turn creates problems in other parts of the health and care system, such as overstretched A&E departments or delays in people leaving hospital.” NHS center_img Patients sent home from hospital on a Sunday are 40 per cent more likely to end up in A&E, the new statistics showCredit:Andrew Fox  “We are raising this issue because we think urgent action needs to be taken,” he said. “We think more resources need to be made available.”Making a direct plea to ministers, he said:  “We can’t carry on like this.”The regulator raised fears that the care sector could face a wave of closures, piling still more pressure on hospitals.“There are indications that the sustainability of adult social care is approaching a tipping point,” the report warns.Rising numbers of pensioners were being denied help to wash, eat and dress, increasing the risk they would end up in hospital, the  watchdog said.Latest figures suggest more than one million elderly people are living with “unmet social care needs” – an increase of 200,000 people in five years.Mr Behan said the trend, combined with nursing home closures, care providers terminating contracts, and the failure of some of the worst services to improve meant the sector faced a crisis the like of which he had never seen. “I am now in my 38th year working in health and care services and I can’t recall a time when those five factors have occurred together,” he said.Investment in services to help older people to live independently would reduce pressure on hospitals, which have become increasingly overstretched, the watchdog said.“This is about help with activities for daily living – washing, feeding, cooking, cleaning,” Mr Behan said. Old hands People discharged from hospital at the weekend are up to 40 per cent more likely to be back in Accident & Emergency within a week, official data reveals.The NHS report on “seven day services” confirms previous studies which show patients admitted to the hospital on Saturdays and Sundays fare far worse.Death rates within a month of admission at the weekends were 15 per cent higher than for those who arrived during the week.But the new figures also suggest that hospitals are sending too many patients home at weekends, when they are not well enough, or do not have the support to care for them at home.Ministers have promised a “truly seven day NHS” by 2020, amid concern that patients are suffering worse care at weekends because of a lack of senior doctors, and a scarcity of services to help elderly people be safely discharged.Charities say overcrowded hospitals are under pressure to empty their beds, amid record levels of bed-blocking for want of social care to support the elderly.It means that at weekends, junior doctors have been left to discharge patients who are not well enough, or who need help from rehabilitation and social services which is not available.As a result, elderly people have been sent home with little help, only to fall into crisis, and end up back in A&E within a week, the new figures show.The study warns: “An emergency readmission within a short period period following discharge from hospital (defined here as seven days) could, in some cases be considered indicative of the patient being discharged before they were fit or be due to a lack of availability of rehabilitation and support services when a patient was discharged home following hospital treatment.”Latest statistics show hospital bed occupancy is at record levels for the time of year, with bed-blocking levels up 30 per cent on last year.Last month the head of the CQC said hospitals were struggling because they were attempting to look after too many elderly patients who were not getting enough help from social care.David Behan, CQC chief executive, said he had never experienced a crisis on such a scale, during almost 40 years working in health and social care. last_img read more

Heres the most popular employer on LinkedIn in Ireland

first_imgTHE NUMBER OF Irish people who have joined the networking and recruitment social network LinkedIn has officially passed one million.However not all of them actually live in the country, with more than 10 per cent – 100,000 people – living and working abroad.That’s just some of the information released by the social network – which has an estimated 259 million users worldwide – about its user base in Ireland to coincide with the landmark figure, including details about the most popular companies, colleges and sectors.The LinkedIn figures show that the three most popular – i.e. most frequently cited companies – among Irish members are, in order,  the HSE, AIB and Bank of Ireland.Meanwhile University College Dublin is the most popular university, followed by DIT and then Trinity College Dublin.LinkedIn said that the hi-tech industry is the biggest sector in terms of employment of users, followed by financial services and construction, reflecting the areas which have high numbers of graduates and jobseekers.Around 50 per cent of the Irish diaspora members are based in Europe, where they are most likely to work in the hi-tech industry, LinkedIn said, while emigrants living in Australia are most likely to work in construction. Emigrants to the UK are most likely to work in finance while US emigrants are also most likely to be working in technology.Sharon McCooey of LinkedIn said that Irish members ‘are one of the most engaged audiences in the world’. The social network employs more than 400 people at its international headquarters in Dublin.The one million figure does not include details on how many people actually use their account.

Chouhan not even dust of Nehrus feet Diggy slams former CM

first_imgBhopal: Congress leaders on Sunday hit out at Shivraj Singh Chouhan for blaming former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru for the Jammu and Kashmir crisis, with Digvijaya Singh saying the BJP leader is “not even the dust of Nehru’s feet”.

Defence of allies key US condition for Syria exit

first_imgSyrian Democratic Forces and U.S. troops are seen during a patrol near Turkish border in Hasakah, Syria on 4 November, 2018. Photo: ReutersUS president Donald Trump’s national security adviser on Sunday set out conditions for the withdrawal of American troops from Syria, saying the defence of allies must first be assured.The comments by John Bolton during a visit to Israel signalled a far more gradual US withdrawal than initially set out by Trump, whose 19 December announcement concerned allies and led to the resignation of defence secretary Jim Mattis.Trump himself has more recently spoken of “slowly” sending troops home “over a period of time”, and Bolton laid out some of the conditions required before it takes place.”We’re going to be discussing the president’s decision to withdraw, but to do so from northeast Syria in a way that makes sure that ISIS is defeated and is not able to revive itself and become a threat again,” Bolton said when meeting Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem.”And to make sure that the defence of Israel and our other friends in the region is absolutely assured, and to take care of those who have fought with us against ISIS and other terrorist groups.”Israel is especially worried over whether the withdrawal will allow its main enemy Iran to expand its presence in the neighbouring country.Netanyahu has pledged to continue to act against Iran in Syria.Israel has carried out hundreds of air strikes in Syria against what it says are Iranian military targets and deliveries of advanced weapons to Hezbollah, a Shiite Lebanese militia backed by Tehran.Earlier in the day, Bolton told journalists travelling with him that conditions such as guarantees on the safety of Kurdish allies must be met before American troops are withdrawn, NBC News reported.Bolton also said all 2,000 US forces may not be pulled out, according to the report.He said the withdrawal would take place in northeastern Syria, while some forces could remain to the south at the al-Tanf garrison as part of efforts to counter Iran’s presence.Condition the withdrawal”There are objectives that we want to accomplish that condition the withdrawal,” said Bolton, according to NBC.”Timetables or the timing of the withdrawal occurs as a result of the fulfilment of the conditions and the establishment of the circumstances that we want to see. And once that’s done, then you talk about a timetable.”Kurdish-led forces control a large swathe of Syria’s north and northeast, some of it seized from the Islamic State group.Despite backing from the US-led coalition and success in pushing back IS, Kurdish-led forces have at times incurred heavy losses.A US withdrawal could leave them exposed to an attack by neighbouring Turkey — where Bolton travels on Monday — and its Syrian proxies.The Kurds have invited Damascus to send troops into some of the territory it controls, to act as a bulwark against pro-Turkish forces.Bolton’s visit was part of a US effort to reassure allies after Trump’s announcement.US secretary of state Mike Pompeo, who also met Netanyahu last week, leaves on Tuesday for an eight-day trip to Amman, Cairo, Manama, Abu Dhabi, Doha, Riyadh, Muscat, and Kuwait City.Netanyahu used Sunday’s meeting to again push for the United States and other countries to recognise Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights, the strategic plateau it seized from Syria in the 1967 Six-Day War and later annexed.He said he planned to take Bolton to visit the Golan before he leaves for Turkey on Monday if weather permits.”The Golan Heights is tremendously important for our security and I think that when you’re there you’ll be able to understand perfectly why we’ll never leave the Golan Heights,” Netanyahu said alongside Bolton.”And why it’s important that all countries recognise Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights. I’ve discussed this with the president.”last_img read more

A Mission Control Officer Remembers Apollo 8

first_img 00:00 /00:48 To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Fatal error: Theme CSS could not load after 20 sec. Please download the latest theme at http://galleria.io/customer/.Next week, NOVA will air a documentary on Apollo 8, humankind’s first flight to the moon, which launched 50 years ago tomorrow, on December 21, 1968.Originally, Apollo 8 was scheduled to test out the lunar module in Earth orbit. But when it became clear, in August 1968, that the module wouldn’t be ready in time, NASA had to make a decision: was it ready to fly a manned rocket to lunar orbit?“My first reaction was, ‘That’s the craziest idea I’ve ever heard,’” said Jerry Bostick, then chief of flight dynamics and retrofire officer at NASA’s Apollo Mission Control Center in Houston. “We hadn’t planned to do that until the first quarter of ′69.”It had been less than two years since the tragic Apollo 1 fire, which killed astronauts Virgil “Gus” Grissom, Edward White, and Roger Chaffee. NASA’s first manned spaceflight after that, Apollo 7, was set for that October. But the setback with the lunar module threatened the goal set by President John F. Kennedy of putting a man on the Moon by the end of the decade.“George Low [then manager of the Apollo Spacecraft Program Office, later NASA deputy administrator] came up with the bold idea of, ‘Okay, if Apollo 7 is successful, then let’s go to the Moon on Apollo 8 without the lunar module, and that will allow us to get the program back on schedule.”Christopher Kraft, then NASA’s director of flight operations, met with Bostick and three of his colleagues on a Friday afternoon to ask whether it was possible. He told them he wanted an answer by Monday.“We all went back on Monday and said, ‘There is no reason why we can’t. We won’t have everything that we want in the control center as far as displays go, but we can make do,’” Bostick said.Four months later, Frank Borman, James “Jim” Lovell, and William “Bill” Anders became the first humans to travel to the Moon. One of the most striking moments of the mission came as a complete surprise to Bostick and his colleagues at Mission Control.“What could be better than having Americans circling the Moon on Christmas Eve and reading from Genesis about the creation of the universe? It brought tears to everybody’s eye,” Bostick says.The flight set the stage for Apollo 11 to land on the Moon the following July.NOVA’s documentary, “Apollo’s Daring Mission,” premieres next Wednesday, December 26, at 8 p.m. on TV 8.

Thailands king leaves hospital after 4 years

first_img New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Comments   Share   Top Stories BANGKOK (AP) – Thailand’s 85-year-old king on Thursday left the Bangkok hospital where he lived for the past four years and returned to his seaside palace with the queen.King Bhumibol Adulyadej and Queen Sirikit traveled by car to Klai Kangwon Palace in the town of Hua Hin, where they lived before the world’s longest-reigning monarch was hospitalized with lung inflammation in September 2009.Tens of thousands of well-wishers gathered in front of Bangkok’s Siriraj Hospital to see the widely revered Bhumibol off. Sitting in a Volkswagen van, the king looked fresh in his patterned shirt and salmon-colored suit. The queen was wearing a bright blue top and a pearl necklace. Both waved eagerly to the crowds of people who waved pictures of the king, as well as the Thai and royal flags.“As a Thai, I’m here today to see him off,” said Poranee Sunasuan, a 39-year-old officer worker from Bangkok. “I feel so good that I can’t describe into words. I’m really happy to be here.”Throngs of Thais also welcomed the king near the royal residence in Hua Hin, a seaside town in the southern province of Prachuap Khiri Khan, about a 2 1/2-hour drive from Bangkok.The palace has not indicated whether the king’s move will be permanent.Bhumibol has had a variety of ailments and almost disappeared from public life after being hospitalized for what the palace called a lung inflammation. He made only rare day trips, always in a wheelchair.The 80-year-old queen was admitted to the same hospital last year after the palace said she experienced dizziness and staggered slightly while walking for exercise.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.
