Trudeau Singh offer condolences in wake of New York City terror attack

first_imgOTTAWA – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he’s “deeply grieved” by Tuesday’s terrorist attack in New York City.A man in a rented pickup truck mowed down pedestrians and cyclists along a busy bike path near the World Trade Center memorial, killing at least eight and seriously injuring 11.The driver barrelled along the bike path for the equivalent of about 14 blocks before slamming into a small yellow school bus.In a release, Trudeau offered sincere condolences on behalf of all Canadians to those mourning the loss of family members and friends.He also offered wishes for a full recovery to those who were injured.NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh took to Twitter, tweeting “Sending my love, thoughts and prayers to all those impacted by the tragic violence in Manhattan today, along with all first responders.”Trudeau noted that New Yorkers are known for their resilience and strength, and will “stand together as they always have in the face of difficult situations.”“Tonight, we offer our prayers and thoughts to our neighbours in the United States. We are with you, as always, as friends and allies,” he said.– With files from The Associated Presslast_img read more

Quebec woman who carried on relationship with young child avoids jail time

first_imgMONTREAL — A Montreal-area woman who carried on an intense, inappropriate relationship with a young girl despite numerous efforts to get her to stop will avoid further jail time.Virginia Genevrier, 40, was sentenced Thursday after previously pleading guilty to one count of transmitting sexually explicit material to a minor and two counts of breaching a peace bond.“How could a woman of this age, married and a mother, develop over time a special relationship to that point with an adolescent who was 12 years old at the time?” Quebec court Judge Helene Morin asked as she handed down a sentence in a case she described as “unique.”The judge noted that efforts by the girl’s school, her family, the police and the judiciary all failed to stop Genevrier’s behaviour. “The accused interfered in a totally inappropriate way in the life of this girl, and this is what must be denounced,” she said.Genevrier was found to have had a relationship with a girl, now 16, whom she met while working as a lunch monitor at her daughter’s Montreal-area elementary school. Over time, the relationship intensified to the point where the girl had developed romantic feelings for Genevrier, whose daughter was a classmate.Genevrier started exchanging Facebook messages with the girl, who confided in her about troubles at home.The girl’s mother asked Genevrier to stop contacting her daughter after stumbling on love messages between the two. When that failed, Genevrier was arrested in 2015 and made to sign a peace bond with a list of strict conditions.She lost her school job that year, but the interaction continued. The girl would write to Genevrier telling her, “You are the woman of my life,” “I love you” and “Do you want to marry me?” The victim even gave a ring to Genevrier, who had the September 2017 expiration date of the second peace bond tattooed on her upper body.The judge described the written exchanges between the two as expressions of mutual love without any sexual connotation, comparing it to discussions between lovestruck adults. “On reading some of the messages, you wonder sometimes who was adolescent and who was the adult,” Morin said.The only sexual exchange uncovered between the two led to the criminal charge: Video of Genevrier in the shower in erotic poses dated December 2017 were discovered on the girl’s tablet. Genevrier claimed she was unaware the girl had recorded her during a video phone call.Genevrier told the court she’s no longer the same person and recognizes the impact of her actions on her husband and daughter.The court heard Genevrier, a native of France who moved to Quebec with her husband in 2003, had a difficult childhood marked by violence and an alcoholic mother and saw some of herself in the victim. She was determined to make sure the young girl’s adolescence didn’t turn out like her own.“There was a part of me that was rational — I was married, a mother  — and another part who was the rebel adolescent who wanted to help her,” Genevrier told a sexologist in a report quoted by the judge. Despite her actions, Genevrier professed to love only her husband.Morin sentenced her to six months on the charge of transmitting explicit material, the minimum sentence under the law. Because she has already spent 4 1/2 months in custody, that sentence is considered served.She was also given a 20-month sentence to be served in the community on two counts of breaching conditions of a peace bond, along with two years probation and 240 hours of community service. Genevrier must register as a sex offender and can’t contact the victim for five years. She cannot work in a setting where children under age 16 are present.“Understand if you miss a condition, you are incarcerated, and that is for the entire 20-month sentence,” Morin warned Genevrier, who declined to comment outside the court.Sidhartha Banerjee, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Consumer financial watchdog abandons name change plan

first_imgNEW YORK — The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is abandoning a controversial renaming plan, in one of the first big decisions by its new permanent director.The CFPB is dropping the switch to “Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection” that had been sought by President Trump’s acting director of the bureau, according to an email by Kathy Kraninger, who took over earlier this month.Kraninger cited cost factors in renaming the bureau as well as years of branding and identification the CFPB had built up over the years. The banking industry has thousands of disclosures and paperwork that referred to the CFPB, and reprinting those documents could have been a significant cost.Kraninger’s email was published by Allied Progress, a left-wing advocacy group.Ken Sweet, The Associated Presslast_img read more

Tamil man selfharms as deportation looms

A Tamil man set to be deported from Australia today has attempted to take his own life.Around 50 protesters have gathered outside the Maribyrnong detention centre in Melbourne’s west in a bid to block Immigration authorities from sending the 42-year-old back to Sri Lanka. A last minute bid for a court injunction last night to stop the deportation also failed. The department spokesman said the wounds were not serious.The case follows the deportation of Tamil man Dayan Anthony in July, who was returned to Sri Lanka by Australian immigration authorities despite a last minute appeal to the United Nations. (Sydney Morning Herald) The man was given his marching orders this month after failing in his bid for asylum. A spokesman for the Immigration department confirmed an act of self-harm had occurred and the man had been treated on site. He remains in the detention centre.”These sort of activities don’t affect the outcome of the person’s protection claim,” the spokesman said.Tamil community advocate Aran Mylvaganam, who is among the protesters outside the centre, said he received a call at 5.15am from another detainee inside the centre alerting him to the man’s plight. ”I don’t know whether his aim was to hurt himself enough to stop them taking him away or whether he was trying to end his life,” Mr Mylvaganam said. The man, who arrived in Australia in February 2010, claimed his brother was a separatist Tamil Tiger fighter, killed in the bloody decades-long campaign for independence in Sri Lanka.Early this morning an ambulance was called to the detention centre after the man attempted to take his life. read more

National Trust farming hero who won his tenancy in competition charged with

The farm affords panoramic views of the Irish SeaCredit:PA Jones is an experienced sheep farmer who previously worked in AngleseyCredit:PA Parc Farm is nestled on the rugged limestone cliffs of north Wales, affording a sweeping vista of the Irish Sea.The Great Orme headland that wraps around it is home to a broad variety of rare species and habitats, according to the National Trust, some of which exist “nowhere else on Earth”.The conservation group bought the land in 2015 and leased it to Jones along with grazing right over an additional 720 acres.The shepherd, who had previously cared for around 1,000 sheep on rented land in nearby Anglesey, moved to the farm with his wife, son and five working dogs in October 2016.At the time, William Greenwood, a National Trust general manager, said: “Whittling down the applicants to the very best was an exhaustive task, but Dan and his wife absolutely stood out from the crowd.” He also faces prosecution for allegedly failing to keep an up-to-date register and inventory of his animals, obstructing a person authorised under the Animal By-Products (Enforcement) Wales Regulations and two charges relating to the movement of sheep from his farm.Jones pleaded not guilty to all the charges and opted for the case to be heard in the lower court instead of crown court.His solicitor David Kirwan told the court : “This is an important case in terms of the publicity the trial is likely to attract.” The farm affords panoramic views of the Irish Sea Jones was tasked with revitalising the fragile landscape using a “nature-first” approach to farming as wildlife across the country dropped 60% in the past 50 years. A British shepherd who “absolutely stood out” among international competition to win the tenancy of a National Trust farm has appeared in court charged under the Animal Health Act.Daniel Jones, 40, was selected from 2,500 applicants to take over the 145-acre Parc Farm on the Great Orme headland above Llandudno, north Wales, for just £1 a year in 2016.The National Trust had decided to offer the £1 million stretch of land to a “conservation farming hero” as part of its 10-year plan to arrest a precipitous decline in rural wildlife.Following interest from across the globe – and calls at a rate of more than 100 an hour for days after the scheme was announced – Jones and his family were handed the keys.–– ADVERTISEMENT ––This week he came before Llandudno Magistrates’ Court accused of 20 offences relating to livestock, tracing back to his early days on the farm.Brought under legislation to prevent the spread of animal disease, the charges included failing to dispose of the carcasses of five sheep that had died on his land, failing to ensure that birds or animals would not come into contact with the remains and failing to notify the authorities of sheep he had received on the farm from other locations. He bought a new flock of sheep with money from the National Trust’s partner conservation charity Plantlife.Following his win he said: “I couldn’t quite believe it when I got the call to say I was successful. I was in shock.“This opportunity will change our lives.“Y Parc is a dream farm, it is such a beautiful location, the views are amazing, and I’m really looking forward to farming in a different way to make a difference for nature.”Mr Kirwin told the court on Tuesday that Jones had appeared several times on television as a result of his winning bid.He said the trial would probably last three to five days, with the prosecution calling three witnesses and the defence at least 10, including an expert witness whose statement had not yet been received. The magistrates agreed that the case should be handled by District Judge Gwyn Jones who will hold a pre-trial hearing on January 28.The National Trust said it was aware of the charges but would not be commenting further.

Première greffe dune veine personnalisée grâce à des cellules souches

first_imgPremière greffe d’une veine “personnalisée” grâce à des cellules souchesUne équipe médicale suédoise a réalisé avec succès la première greffe d’une veine préalablement “personnalisée” grâce à l’utilisation des cellules souches de la jeune patiente greffée.  C’est une véritable prouesse qu’a annoncée hier la revue The Lancet. Une équipe médicale suédoise a en effet réalisé une greffe pionnière : une greffe d’un segment de neuf centimètres de veine iliaque personnalisée grâce à l’utilisation des cellules souches de la jeune patiente greffée. Quoique coûteuse et relativement longue à mettre en place, cette technique offre l’avantage pour le receveur de ne pas requérir de traitement anti-rejet. De plus, elle permet d’éviter le “traumatisme” d’un prélèvement de veine propre.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Prélevée sur un donneur mort, la veine avait préalablement été préparée en retirant toutes ses cellules pour ne laisser qu’un tube constitué de protéines. Ensuite, des cellules souches provenant de la moelle osseuse de la fillette de dix ans devant être greffée, ont été ensemencées sur ce canevas protéinique. Deux semaines après, ce greffon a été implanté pour réaliser un pontage sur la jeune patiente. L’équipe suédoise de l’Université de Göteborg qui a réalisé l’intervention, a cependant dû réaliser une seconde greffe un an plus tard (avec la même méthode) en raison d’un rétrécissement du premier greffon. Néanmoins, “la patiente se porte bien depuis et est capable de réaliser des marches de plus en plus longues de deux à trois kilomètres ainsi que des exercices légers de gymnastique”, selon un communiqué du Lancet. L’annonce vient ainsi confirmer une nouvelle fois l’intérêt thérapeutique des cellules souches. En juillet déjà, une autre équipe suédoise avait annoncé le succès d’une greffe de trachée, faite d’une matière artificielle mais elle aussi recouverte de cellules souches du patient greffé.

Cabinet shocked over NHIB losses bleeding funds in the Millions

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, November 25, 2016 – The National Health Insurance Board was bleeding cash and needs millions in emergency money in order to save it.   A recent Cabinet sitting exposed that the people’s health plan was being poorly managed and the Governor wants to know why Cabinet did not know this.It is said that the NHIB needs $6.1 million, and a $2 million bail out is urgent.  The money is to come from the Contingency fund so that the social health care plan can meet immediate needs.“In approving a transfer from contingency funds of $2 million to the NHIB to meet immediate needs, Cabinet expressed grave concern about the failure of NHIB management to bring to the attention of Cabinet in a timely fashion the parlous state of its financial situation and advised His Excellency the Governor to agree that, among other measures, a comprehensive review of the management and corporate governance of the NHIB should be carried out by the end of January 2017.” Staff charged that this is what was happening and had to take industrial action, at least twice, to get the PNP Administration’s attention.   The information was presented by interim CEO, Tamera Robinson, who in under two weeks uncovered the unhealthy state of the country’s health plan.

A Small Win for Legacy Media Time Inc Acquires MySpace

first_img With these figures as context, it is clear that Time Inc. sees data-informed, digital marketing—particularly to smartphone-wielding millennials—as the key to ensuring that the content produced by its high-profile brands yields the dividends needed to right the ship. Time Inc. announced on Thursday that it has acquired the assets of data-focused marketing firm Viant, the company that owns the aging but pioneering social network MySpace.  Quarterly financial reports for the company, also released Thursday morning, revealed a profit decline that endured at least through the end of 2015.  In December, Time Inc. partnered with tech firm GumGum to overlay digital ads on images, and then hired Popsugar alum Jennifer Wong as the first president of Time Inc. Digital. That wasn’t the only new executive role created at the company last year; in May, JT Kostman became Time Inc.’s first chief data officer. Time Inc. saw a net income loss of $881 million last year, according to the report. Absent a $952 million goodwill impairment charge that resulted from falling stock prices, the company would have seen an operating income gain of $71 million—still down 37 percent from 2014. Naturally, the MySpace piece of deal generates attention because it is symbolic of the strengths of “legacy media” and the sometimes fleeting nature of digital media. In the mid-2000s, before the rise of Facebook, MySpace was the largest social network in the world. It had tens of millions of registered users and at the time was symbolic of the rise of new kinds of media. “We are a business in transition,” Ripp told AMMC attendees last week, adding that, “Experiences are what we sell to consumers and advertisers alike.” But the acquisition represents the latest in a series of bolt-on acquisitions for Time Inc., most of them focused in the digital media market, with a special emphasis on data. Time Inc. CEO Joe Ripp outlined the strategy at the American Magazine Media Conference (AMMC) held last week in New York, telling the audience, “Everything we do is a data collection effort now.” “Ripp has put data at the heart of everything we do. Every decision we make and every action we take,” Kostman told Folio: sister site min at the time, waxing poetic about Ripp’s forward-looking strategy and recognition of the opportunities afforded by leveraging the company’s data assets—which were already considerable a year ago. Print advertising revenue dipped 10 percent year-over-year ($153 million) to $1.32 billion, while circulation revenue derived from subscriptions and newsstand sales fell 5 percent to $1 billion. As expected, digital advertising revenue was up 11 percent, but is still a relatively small piece of the puzzle, at just $331 million for the year. The Viant acquisition is only the latest in a string of related Time Inc. purchases and personnel moves over the past year. Last month, the company teamed with Audience Partners to launch CampaignFocus, a data-driven digital advertising platform targeting voters ahead of November’s presidential election. That followed the launch of RealTime, a new ad product aiming to harness social engagement. Somewhat shockingly, MySpace still generates significant traffic, with as many as 50 million active or semi-active users, according to one report. It was acquired by News Corp. in 2005 for $580 million, only to be divested six years later for $35 million—a staggering loss that rivals the decline of print-media brands like TV Guide. News Corp. bought TV Guide in 1988 for $3 billion. It was sold by a subsequent owner in 2008 for $1.  Of particular note is the fact that revenue from digital advertising eclipsed revenue from newsstand sales for the first time over a full-year period, outpacing newsstand sales in the last three months of the year by 21 percent. Viant is a 17-year-old database and advertising-technology company with one of the largest registered user bases in the world. It’s focused on programmatic, user identification and other services. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. last_img read more

Updated Path to Purchase Institute Acquired by Private Equity

first_img And the acquisitions may not end here. Glass confirms that RFE is looking for opportunities to further develop the business through both acquisitions and organic growth. The Connecticut-based private equity firm announced on Monday its acquisition of the Path to Purchase Institute, publisher of the monthly Shopper Marketing magazine, for an undisclosed sum. “The whole concept of what we’re trying to develop is a media company that really surrounds a given market, in this case the retail and consumer packaged goods space,” Alan Glass, executive chairman of the newly formed entity that will oversee both Path to Purchase and Stagnito + Edgell, tells Folio:. Updated on 4/14/16 at 5:16 pm EDT. RFE Investment Partners has made its second major splash of the year in B2B media.  More recently, Bruce Wasserstein, through his namesake private equity firm, reacquired ALM back in 2014. Months later, McGraw Hill sold its construction portfolio, including Architectural Record, to Symphony Technology Group for $320 million (BNP Media subsequently purchased Architectural Record less than a year later).  Glass describes the envisioned collaboration as the sum of a series of complementary parts: Path to Purchase and its focus on in-store marketing, Stagnito’s big-picture coverage of the whole retail operation, and Edgell’s expertise on the increasingly important technology side of the business. “The idea is to offer a variety of products that fit the needs of a customer,” Glass adds. The Path to Purchase Institute was represented by New York-based investment bank Petsky Prunier, LLC. A major focus for RFE since the merger and subsequent acquisition of Stagnito and Edgell has been organizational culture and ensuring a seamless transition for employees. Among the first investments was the hiring of Greg Flores, former SVP of human resources for Reed Business Information, as chief human resources officer.  The deal, coming less than two months after RFE merged and then acquired Stagnito Business Information and Edgell Communications, makes RFE a dominant media source in the retail and consumer goods space. Shopper Marketing, which claims a monthly circulation of over 18,000, as well as the Institute’s events, e-learning, and book publishing businesses, will be joined under the RFE umbrella by Stagnito/Edgell titles such as Convenience Store News, Progressive Grocer, and RIS News, among several others. Both acquisitions maintain what is now a well-established trend of B2B publishers getting scooped up by private equity—temporarily or otherwise—kicked off by Forstmann Little’s surprising $1.4 billion acquisition of Ziff Davis in 1994, much to the chagrine of multiple international media conglomerates looking to grab the family-owned publisher. “I want to emphasize that there are absolutely no terminations whatsoever,” Glass continues. “We are, in fact, hiring. We’re actively going after brand directors. We have sales people that we’re adding. We are actively looking for a chief digital officer for the company.” Both Path to Purchase Institute CEO, Peter Hoyt, and Kollin Stagnito, named president and CEO of Stagnito + Edgell after the RFE acquisition, will report to Glass.last_img read more

Dig at selectors Ajinkya Rahane makes his preference clear Number 4 favourite

first_imgAjinkya RahaneReutersThe constant chatter around India’s middle-order grew when the side was shunted out of the World Cup. This also put pressure on the selectors and the management and as a response, players like Shreyas Iyer and Manish Pandey were included in the squad to take on West Indies.However, Ajinkya Rahane, who vice-captain in Test matches, is still out of favour with the selectors as far as the ODI format is concerned. There have been voices of support in favour of Rahane’s inclusion for the number 4 position and now the player himself has made his preference pretty clear.”Incidentally, my number (sequence in the prize distribution) here is four… I really enjoy batting at No 4. That’s my favourite position,” Rahane said in his opening address at the Cricket Association of Bengal’s (CAB) annual awards ceremony at the Netaji Indoor Stadium.Rahane will return to Test cricket against West IndiesRahane will return to action in the Test series against West Indies. Despite the fact that India’s favourites are part of the team, the senior pro is not taking anything for granted.”We all know they are a dangerous and unpredictable team. I’m really looking forward to the series against the West Indies,” Rahane said.A person who has always looked to put the interest of the team above personal milestones, the vice-captain said that he was looking at giving it his best and contributing as much as possible for the side.”It is important to respect them and play our game as we’ve been playing, especially in Test cricket. For me, it’s important to give my best. I always focus on contributing for my team and I think I’m just going to do my best as well. Once I go there, I will give my 100 per cent,” said Rahane. Ajinkya Rahane will return to Test cricketGareth Copley/Getty ImagesRecently, he also found support from captain Virat Kohli who said that the team understands the importance of Rahane as he has always stood up in tough situations and hence, will always be given a longer rope to prosper.”Jinx has been solid player for us through and through. That’s always been our communictaion. He is one of the most sorted guys. Really, really composed. He reads the game well also. Priceless fielder. We have all seen the impact he can create in Test cricket with is slip catching and everything,” Kohli said ahead of the series against West Indies.last_img read more

Colin believes that the negative caricature of Jackson that was created by the team’s appearance on Hard Knocks was one he couldn’t shake and as damaging in the long run as his abysmal record. It made Jackson look small, petty and generally in over his head as an NFL head coach. Perception can turn into reality, and Hard Knocks has shown it can be a killer.last_img read more

Just keep working hard to be ready for my opportu

first_img“Just keep working hard to be ready for my opportunity, and once I get my opportunity, step up and play well for the guys that have already been playing well.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Peterson noted that the secondary as a whole had a rough game against the Titans, as quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 402 yards and four touchdowns in the game. But, he said, that wasn’t on Cason.“He came and he did his part, and he won the game for us. If Cason didn’t exactly win the game for the Cardinals, he certainly helped the cause. He returned his first interception, which came in the fourth quarter, 20 yards for a touchdown, giving Arizona a 34-17 lead. His second interception, which came in overtime, stopped a Titans’ drive and led to Jay Feely’s game-winning field goal. From barely contributing in the box score to being someone who received a game ball, it was quite a turn of events for the 27-year-old former first-round pick, who said being the “next man up” can be a bit of a challenge. After all, Cason himself spent the last 14 games not playing a lot of cornerback, only to be thrust into a key role in a pivotal game.“That sounds easy; it definitely wasn’t easy but it’s just one of those things where you stick to it, stick to it, stick to it,” he said. “I love playing the game and the guys, and being on the team of course we’re winning and we have an opportunity to go to the playoffs. We’re definitely playing for something so that’s huge and to keep a positive attitude in the midst of my situation — at this point it’s not about me individually. Pressed into a larger role Sunday due to injuries around him, Cason responded with four tackles, two interceptions, two passes defensed and one fumble recovery in the Cardinals’ 37-34 overtime win over the Tennessee Titans. Needless to say, his locker was a popular destination for members of the media Wednesday afternoon, as Cason went from being a bit of a forgotten man on an elite defense to someone who stepped up when the team needed him most.“It was huge and the feeling is great,” Cason said of coming up big for the team. “It’s kind of hard to explain, hard to put into words. But just continue to stick to it all year and make the most of the opportunity that the coaches give me, so that’s really what I was priding myself on all year to keep myself going.”It’s no secret that Cason’s season has not gone according to plan, but he’s never once complained about his situation. The former University of Arizona star continued to work hard so that he’d be ready when called upon. That did not go unnoticed.“He got a game ball,” teammate Patrick Peterson said. “Everyone noticed that Antoine didn’t like his role, but at the end of the day he was a classy professional. He came to work every day to work and he went about his business. Once his number was called, as you can tell, we didn’t miss a beat.” – / 20 Comments   Share   Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories TEMPE, Ariz. — Antoine Cason’s locker in the Arizona Cardinals’ Tempe training facility is in a corner, somewhat out of the way. Though never averse to chatting with the media, truth be told, he hasn’t had much to talk about this season. Since signing as a free agent with the team after five seasons in San Diego, Cason has seen his role change from starting cornerback to special teams player, with only the occasional contribution as a member of the defense.
