first_imgTORONTO – Toronto police and firefighters had to deal with another construction crane climber on Wednesday night.Authorities were called at about 11:30 p.m. concerning a man who had scaled a crane at a downtown work site (at Dundas and Jarvis).After about three hours of negotiations involving police and a psychiatrist, the man descended about 20 metres on a fire truck aerial ladder and was taken to hospital to be assessed.There was no immediate word on possible charges.The incident was similar to one in Toronto in April when a 23-year-old woman was stranded for hours after scaling a construction crane in the middle of the night.Marisa Lazo — a dual Canadian-American citizen — was charged with six counts of mischief by interfering with property and released on bail with several conditions, including staying away from construction sites and rooftops.

first_imgSASKATOON – A new study suggests that the incidence of epilepsy among Indigenous Canadians is twice that of non-Indigenous people.Research from the University of Saskatchewan showed a national rate annually of 62 new cases per 100,000 people. But for self-identified First Nations patients, that rate doubles to 122 per 100,000.Lead researcher Jose Téllez-Zenteno, a professor at the University of Saskatchewan College of Medicine, said he couldn’t point to the exact reason for the difference, but it could be connected to higher rates of traumatic brain injury in Indigenous populations.“It’s very well known that some patients who survive a head injury can develop epilepsy later. That would be our main hypothesis, although we cannot rule out other theories,” he said, adding age and genetics could also play a role.Anything that disturbs the normal pattern of brain activity can lead to seizures, but other factors, such as poverty and reduced access to education, may also contribute to a higher risk.The rates in Canada’s Indigenous population are closer to those in Latin American countries with higher levels of poverty, Téllez-Zenteno said.The study, published Thursday in Seizure: European Journal of Epilepsy, had a team of epidemiologist and neurologists use Saskatchewan Health records from 2005 to 2010 to gather data on patients who were either hospitalized for epilepsy or had two physician visits with an epilepsy diagnosis.They then took the data and adjusted it for the rest of the country.Téllez-Zenteno said between 30 and 40 per cent of patients cannot control their epilepsy with medication and will require an operation to stop the seizures. But he said research in Saskatchewan shows 95 per cent of people getting the surgery are non-Indigenous.“That means that these patients … are not having the benefits of epilepsy surgery,” he said, adding more outreach to Indigenous communities is needed.Study co-author Lizbeth Hernández-Ronquillo said epilepsy is the most common neurological condition worldwide but more research is needed, specifically into the disproportionate rates among Indigenous populations.The study also found that incidents of epilepsy increased as people get older due to health problems such as strokes, tumours and dementia.Although the rate of epilepsy is increasing in countries without universal health care, she said the prevalence of epilepsy across Canada decreased slightly in the years studied.“This trend has been seen in other countries with health coverage like Denmark and Finland,” Hernández-Ronquillo said. “What we are thinking is that the prevention measures that have been in place for years are working in general.”— By Kelly Geraldine Malone in Winnipeglast_img read more

2 June 2010Human trafficking, “one of the most appalling forms of human rights violations,” remains one of the world’s fastest growing criminal activities in the world, an independent United Nations expert said today. But she stressed that the role of regional organizations in fighting the scourge “cannot be underestimated,” Joy Ngozi Ezeilo, the UN Special Rapporteur on Trafficking in Persons, especially women and children, told the Geneva-based Human Rights Council, presenting her annual report.The key to tackling the problem is enhanced coordination among countries of origin, transit and destination, she said, calling for stepped up support for regional and sub-regional groups seeking to catalyze State action to combat trafficking.With most of these organizations focusing nearly exclusively on the criminalization of traffickers, Ms. Ezeilo called on them to adopt a human rights and victim-centred perspective instead.“In order to be effective, they should put the rights of the victim at the core of their strategies and actions,” she said. “By doing so, they will succeed both in protecting victims and prosecuting traffickers.”The Rapporteur, who assumed her position in 2008, underscored to the Council today that “it is only be properly protecting and assisting victims that you can effectively prosecute traffickers.” read more

TORONTO — Canada’s main stock index retreated while the oil-sensitive loonie climbed higher Friday, after rosy economic data increased the odds of an imminent rate hike from the central bank.The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index gave back 31.23 points to 15,182.19, led by energy stocks, which dropped 0.53 per cent.The financials sector of the TSX was down 0.39 per cent, while the consumer discretionary sector added 0.53 per cent and gold stocks were up 0.24 per cent.Meanwhile, the Canadian dollar advanced 0.23 of a US. cent to an average price of 77.06 cents US.The gain in the loonie came as the August crude contract added $1.11 to US$46.04 per barrel and as Statistics Canada reported that the economy posted yet another month of solid growth in April.Meanwhile, a survey from the Bank of Canada found that business sentiment has climbed to its highest level since 2011.“Over the last couple of weeks we have seen a change in the tone from the Bank of Canada in signalling that there is a higher probability of a rate increase in Canada, so that’s being reflected in stocks,” said Colum McKinley, vice-president of Canadian equities at CIBC Asset Management.“The Bank of Canada is saying that the economy is stronger than they had envisioned, and ultimately that’s good for earnings and profitability. On the financials, obviously higher rates are positive for bank earnings but investors will worry about the effect that could have on housing.”In New York, the Dow Jones industrial average gained 62.60 points to 21,349.63, the S&P 500 index added 3.71 points to 2,423.41 and the Nasdaq composite index declined by 3.93 points to 6,140.42.Elsewhere in commodities, the August natural gas contract slipped nearly a cent to US$3.04 per mmBTU.

Miss USA has aired on NBC since 2003 and this year’s edition was set for July 12; NBC said it hasn’t been determined what will air in its place.The network said that it has already begun exploring ways to air future seasons of the reality series “Celebrity Apprentice” without Trump as host. Reality show producer Mark Burnett continues to work on that show. “The Apprentice,” which Trump also hosted and does not feature celebrities, is on hiatus.“At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values,” NBC said in a statement.A Trump spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment. After Univision decided last week it would not air either of the pageants, Trump promised to take legal action against the company for violating a five-year contract.During his presidential kickoff speech, Trump said Mexican immigrants are “bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists and some, I assume, are good people.” He called for building a wall along the southern border of the United States. Trump later said that his remarks were directed at U.S. policymakers, not the Mexican government or its people.The National Hispanic Leadership Agenda, a group of 39 Latino advocacy organizations, had called on NBC to get out of business with Trump. Similarly, a petition urging the same thing on the Change.org website had gathered more than 218,000 signatures.___Television Writer Frazier Moore in New York contributed to this report. read more

“This meeting is a significant opportunity for the movements and the African Union to exchange views and for building a common understanding of the basis for a lasting political settlement for Darfur,” said Mohamed Ibn Chambas, who is also Joint Special Representative and head of the AU-UN hybrid peacekeeping operation in Darfur, known as UNAMID.According to a news release from the mission, Mr. Chambas facilitated a meeting yesterday in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, between the Chairperson of the AU Commission, Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, and leaders of the Sudan Liberation Army – Minni Minawi (SLA-MM) and the Justice and Equality Movement – Gibril Ibrahim (JEM-GI).The Sudanese Government and two major rebel groups have so far committed to the Doha Document for Peace in Darfur (DDPD), named after the Qatari capital where talks were held to end the conflicts between the Government and various armed groups which have led to the deaths of tens if not hundreds of thousands and displaced nearly two million since they first erupted in early 2003.The Liberation and Justice Movement (LJM) signed on in 2012 and the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) signed a framework agreement in January 2013, but several other groups have yet to come fully on board, including JEM-Bashar, and those represented at yesterday’s talks. UNAMID says in its news release that the leaders of the armed movements, Minni Arko Minawi and Gibril Ibrahim Mohamed, affirmed their commitment for peace, a united Sudan with a national identity that reflects its cultural and religious diversity, and the need for a national dialogue to address holistically the problems facing the country. They urged the AU to become fully engaged in the political process and assist the Sudanese parties to realize these goals. The Chairperson welcomed the commitment of the armed movement leaders to peace, the unity of their country, a comprehensive and negotiated solution to Sudan’s issues, and the holding of national dialogue. Reflecting on the experience of the African National Congress (ANC) of South Africa, Ms. Zuma advised: “There will always be problems of mistrust, skepticism and doubts when people have been at war for decades.” For his part, Mr. Chambas urged the armed movements to join the ‘national dialogue’ proposed by Sudanese President Omar Al Bashir in January, as a workable option towards bringing a comprehensive solution to the crises in Darfur and all of Sudan. Chairperson Zuma similarly, encouraged them to continue to work with UNAMID and other stakeholders to formulate a strategy on how to conduct the national dialogue. Ms. Zuma also reaffirmed the commitment of the AU, through the joint efforts of UNAMID and the African Union High Level Panel on Sudan, to continue to assist all the Sudanese parties in the search for lasting peace and economic development in Sudan. “The more we can assist Sudan to be united, diverse with a common national identity, the better for the AU”, she said. During his visit to Addis Ababa, UNAMID says that Mr. Chambas also met the Envoys of the League of Arab States member States accredited to Ethiopia and briefed them on the situation in Darfur, highlighting the security situation, including the rise in inter and intra-communal conflicts and continuing belligerency between the Sudanese Government and armed movements with their negative impact on the humanitarian situation which has worsened. Mr. Chambas discussed his efforts towards facilitating an inclusive, sustainable political process to bring the Darfur conflict to a successful and acceptable conclusion for all stakeholders. He stressed the need for the support and goodwill of the international community, including the Arab League, to make the national dialogue proposed by Khartoum transparent and credible. read more

Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard shared his emotions Thursday with reporters about the time in 2012 when he learned that he would not play in the London Olympics.“I was pissed off,” Howard said. “I was mad I couldn’t play in the playoffs. I was mad I couldn’t play in the Olympics. I was pissed. I was looking forward to going to London. I was looking forward to making a big run in the playoffs last season, so I wasn’t too happy about the fact that I had to have surgery and miss a lot of basketball.”Howard, who won Olympic gold with the U.S. in the 2008 Beijing Games, missed the chance to repeat at the London Games to recover from back surgery. However, Howard said he is ready to join the team for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.The ultimate decision of whether Howard plays is up to USA Basketball managing director Jerry Colangelo. Howard said that he has maintained a close relationship with Colangelo.“He’s cool with me,” Howard said. “He’s always been someone that I’ve thought highly of and he’s always supported me.”Howard said Colangelo invited him to play with 2012 team before his back injury.“We were looking forward to it,” Howard said. “He was one of the first people that contacted me and asked me if I wanted to play. I was very excited about it. I wanted to play. He said, ‘OK.’ ”With one piece of the roster filled out, now all Colangelo has to do is find a new head coach.Duke basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski announced earlier this week on ESPN Radio that he would not continue his head coaching duties with Team USA.But when the Rio de Janeiro Games roll around, Howard will be 30 years old, but for now he is not concerned about who the coach will be when that time comes.“My only concern right now is winning a championship with the Lakers and how we can get better,” Howard said. “I can’t control what happens in the Olympics.” read more

Credit: Anbo Yao | Lantern PhotographerThe No. 7 seed Ohio State women’s soccer team fell to No. 2-seeded Rutgers on Friday afternoon in State College, Pennsylvania, in the semifinals of the Big Ten tournament.The Scarlet Knights defeated the Buckeyes 2-0 to end the Scarlet and Gray’s tournament run after they started it off with an upset win over Wisconsin in the quarterfinals. Rutgers got on the board early in the eighth minute when sophomore forward Colby Ciarrocca flicked home a finish from six yards out after a long throw-in by senior defender Brianna Reed.The Buckeyes had a golden chance to answer in the 12th minute, but Rutgers goalkeeper Casey Murphy made a leaping save. The Scarlet Knights scored again in the 39th minute to give them the 2-0 lead heading into halftime. Junior midfielder Jennifer Andresen took advantage of a giveaway just outside the box and finished from 18 yards out. OSU freshman goalkeeper Devon Kerr, who made the start but was pulled after the second goal, inadvertently passed it directly to Andresen, who had an open strike.Heading into halftime, the Scarlet Knights held the advantage in shots, 6-2, including 3-1 on the frame.Entering the second half, Rutgers pressed on, not content with its lead.In the final 20 minutes of play, the Buckeyes continued to push numbers forward but couldn’t find the back of the net.For the game, the Scarlet Knights held the 13-9 advantage in shots, including 5-3 on the frame.Now the Buckeyes have nothing to do but hope their 11-6-3 record is good enough to receive an at-large bid in the NCAA tournament. OSU will learn whether its season will continue for at least one more game or not when the 64-team bracket is revealed at 4:30 p.m. on Monday. read more

This is Joan Burton’s day.”Burton, who had been widely expected to win the leadership contest, is expected to hold initial talks with the Taoiseach this evening, ahead of face-to-face talks on the reshuffle and the Commissioner post at the start of next week.Gilmore resigned as Tánaiste earlier this afternoon, paving the way for the Dublin West TD to take over.“She will have all of the goodwill and good wishes and help that I can give her in the task,” he said this afternoon.He said he was “very proud of the fact that I’ve had the privilege to lead the Labour Party for seven years” describing the role as an “outstanding honour”“I’m very proud of work we’ve done to bring about recovery,” he said, pointing to a series of ‘good news’ economic headlines in today’s newspapers.He said it was encouraging to see a headline predicting the prospect of a benign budget “rather than a headline which might just as easily have been about a second bailout”.The hard work over the last three years is paying off for the Irish people – and the Irish people today can look ahead to what I think will be a better future.He reiterated that it was his intention to stay active in politics and said he would make “every contribution that I can”.Read: Joan Burton is the new leader of the Labour PartyRead: Why Eamon Gilmore wants a top EU job, and why it would be a win for Labour if he got itlast_img read more

first_imgHDTV technology has been a bit stagnant the last few years. LCD TVs are by far the mainstream and incremental features are being added to them, with 3D being the only possible new “big” feature. Plasma TVs, once the cutting edge and rage of flat screen TVs, have also hit a plateau and maintain a nice dollar per inch savings over their slimmer, more robust LCD counterparts. Accordingly, if you are looking to save some bucks on your HDTV purchase, a plasma is awful tempting with its considerable cost savings over a comparably sized LCD TV.This LG 50PW350 plasma HDTV measures in at a cool 50-inches, a good size for most living rooms and a monster for a game/entertainment room. This isn’t last year’s leftover either, being a 2011 model offering 3D compatibility and a 600Hz refresh rate that claims to eliminate the fuzzy action associated with older plasma technology. 720p 1080p resolution is of course standard, with component video, RCA, VGA, and three HDMI ports for input. Playback of video, audio, and photos is also supported from USB devices. While heavier than your usual LCD TV at 65 lbs, this 50-inch beast measures only 2 inches thick and should fit nicely on your wall.As you can probably tell, this plasma isn’t as fully loaded with cutting edge features like internet connectivity and WiFi. Most plasmas don’t come with such technology and in a few years we probably won’t see new plasma models at all, but until then you can relish getting 50-inches of high quality HDTV for only $663. Most 50-inch+ LCD TVs run at least $1000, though bargain models can be had for less.Visit LogicBuy for the LG 50PW350 50-inch Plasma HDTVlast_img read more

This man was one of the most outstanding human beings I have had anything to do with and his history is amazing. Born in Tianjing in China, he came to Australia in 1949 and he became active politically at the time of emerging cold war. After graduating he became a lecturer in chemistry at RMIT and helped establish the Department of Enviromental Studies at the University of the Aegean on the island of Lesvos. He then became secretary of the Committee of the Restoration of Democracy in Greece and I succeeded Victor Nollis as president.

first_imgMardi Gras : attention aux dangers du maquillage pour enfants Alors que la saison des carnavals bat son plein et que se tient mardi 4 mars la journée de Mardi Gras, l’UFC-Que Choisir revient sur les dangers que présentent certains kits de maquillage pour les enfants. Pirate, tigre, papillon, Mardi Gras c’est l’occasion parfaite pour les enfants de s’offrir un maquillage à la hauteur de leur déguisement. Mais attention, les kits de maquillage ne sont pas sans risques. En effet, nombre d’entre eux sont composés de produits allergènes qui peuvent s’avérer dangereux pour les plus jeunes.C’est ce qu’affirme l’UFC-Que Choisir qui à l’approche de cette période festive a mené une nouvelle analyse sur les dangers du maquillage pour enfants. Au cours de cette étude, l’association a analysé minutieusement la composition de dix kits et huit coffrets de maquillage pour enfants. Résultat ? Au moins neuf d’entre eux contiennent des substances susceptibles de perturber les hormones chez les enfants.  “Certains posent de réels problèmes de sécurité en raison de la plus grande sensibilité des enfants aux substances qu’ils contiennent, mais aussi parce que ces cosmétiques peuvent rester en contact avec la peau des journées entières multipliant l’effet des substances”, explique l’UFC-Que Choisir dans son communiqué.  Allergènes et perturbateurs endocriniensAprès tests, ces produits ont révélé la présence de composants, notamment des conservateurs, qui peuvent perturber le développement hormonal : “nous avons retrouvé des parabènes à longue chaîne utilisés comme conservateurs dans 9 produits sur 18. Les fabricants s’obstinent à les utiliser alors que ces composés sont fortement soupçonnés d’interférer, même à très faible dose, avec la régulation hormonale”, explique l’UFC-Que Choisir dans son communiqué.En outre, certains parfums utilisés dans au moins cinq produits sont connus pour leur effets allergisants. “De ce point de vue, le brillant à lèvre ‘Hello Kitty’  pour Claire’s bat tous les records avec une concentration d’allergènes 140 fois supérieure à la valeur limite imposant leur étiquetage”, précise l’association déconseillant aux parents d’acheter ce produit.Enfin, malgré l’interdiction de l’utilisation de métaux lourds dans le maquillage, 80% des produits testés renfermeraient des pigments contenant des traces de ces métaux. Malgré des teneurs inférieures au seuil d’alerte, la présence de plomb reste la plus dangereuse car elle agit sur le système nerveux. Le nickel, connu pour provoquer des réactions allergiques, a, lui, été découvert en concentration largement supérieures à la norme dans le maquillage. “Plus grave, le maquillage-fond de teint ‘César’ cumule 3 métaux lourds : plomb, nickel et cobalt”, indique le communiqué.Quel maquillage pour Mardi Gras ?En conséquence, l’association demande aux autorités européennes “la mise en place d’une réglementation spécifique plus protectrice des jeunes consommateurs” et exige des fabricants “qu’ils retirent les substances toxiques de tous les produits cosmétiques destinés aux enfants”, rapporte l’AFP.   Parallèlement, l’association conseille aux parents de limiter le maquillage, notamment chez les enfants de moins de trois ans. Et si maquillage il y a, il est préférable de consulter la liste des ingrédients avant d’acheter les produits destinés à être appliqué sur les visages des enfants. UFC-Que Choisir rappelle qu’il faut être vigilants à la présence de certains ingrédients.À lire aussiAntihistaminique : qu’est-ce que c’est ? A quoi ça sert ?Il s’agit des parabènes à longue chaîne (propyl, butyl, isopropyl, isobutylparaben), d’allergènes (parfums mentionnés sur les étiquettes), de phénoxyéthanol (conservateur confirmé toxique pour le foie par ANSM) et de méthylisothiazolinone (responsable de réactions allergiques). Attention aussi à la mention “hypoallergénique”, qui tend à rassurer certains parents. Cela signifie juste que le produit a été conçu afin de minimiser les risques d’allergie mais cette mention n’est pas réglementée. A noter tout de même qu’il existe des produits sûrs qui démontrent qu’il est “possible de se passer de ces substances nocives” : c’est le cas du kit de maquillage ‘Goodmark’, des sticks à l’eau ‘Grim’tout’ et des rouges à lèvre ‘S&Li Cosmetic beauty collection’, selon l’UFC-Que Choisir.Le 4 mars 2014 à 09:51 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

first_imgGreg Jayne, Opinion page editor For Dave Barnett, this is personal.The gorgeous inlaid map of the Cowlitz Indian Tribe’s ancestral lands. The light fixtures that invoke traditional Native American baskets. The business card that lists his connection to the Ilani Casino Resort near La Center by saying, simply, “Dave Barnett, Founder.”“It makes me feel like I started it, because I did,” the 56-year-old Seattle resident says, providing a tour of the pristine facility that opened in April. “I wanted that on there because it’s like raising a child — 18 years.”Barnett is slightly off-target with that analogy. Because the time since he first envisioned a Cowlitz casino in 1999 has been more like 18 years of labor contractions rather than parenthood. There was a quest to have the federal government reaffirm recognition of the tribe. And federal designation of an official reservation in the area. And the purchasing of land, the planning of construction, and a lengthy series of court battles to confirm the tribe’s right to claim reservation status.So, as Ilani attracts what officials say is nearly 10,000 customers a day, it is instructive to consider the game-changing nature of Indian casinos in the United States.Native American tribes are sovereign nations, meaning that states have limited ability to regulate or prevent Indian casinos. Since the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act of 1988, tribes across the country have recognized gambling as a revenue source, and in Washington there are some 32 casinos operated by 23 tribes.last_img read more

Tokyo robotics company ZMP is partnering up with the Ride On Express food delivery service to bring hungry Japanese residents sushi with CarriRo robots.These adorable little robots are bright red and about three feet tall. They can avoid pedestrians and other obstacles thanks to built in sensors, and they can even carry enough food for about 60 people. Yes, 60 people. That’s a whole lotta sushi. They move at about 4 miles an hour, but they’re absolutely adorable robots that can bring you sushi. You don’t have to do anything at all, and this cute little red guy is bringing you food. This is truly the future.Just look at its glossy exterior, and its tiny mouth that kind of resembles a bird’s beak. It just wants to be your friend and help you eat a bunch of delicious food. Nothing to be ashamed of.The robots will start rolling out in Japan this August with parks and private roads being tested first. If it works as planned and there are no crazy robots throwing sushi at people (or people harassing the robots) then lucky Japanese citizens could well see these tiny red dudes in the near future. I’m just over here waiting for my turn in the west. Sushi robots, people. Pronto.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more
