Federal government and First Nations to approve BC fish farms province

13 Oct 2019

first_imgVICTORIA – Fish farmers in British Columbia have four years to show their open-net operations don’t harm wild salmon and to get approval from First Nations to locate them in their territories as part of new rules introduced Wednesday.Agriculture Minister Lana Popham said the government is setting new standards for the renewal of fish farm operating tenures to protect wild salmon stocks and support reconciliation efforts with Indigenous Peoples.“Fish farms are unique, with impacts that are very difficult to contain,” Popham told a news conference. “We acknowledge that many factors are affecting wild salmon, and one of them is fish farms. Wild Salmon are critical to the culture and well-being of many B.C. First Nations.”Popham announced the new policies as tenures expired for 20 fish farms operating around the Broughton Archipelago off Vancouver Island.Opponents to open-net pen fish farms in the Broughton Archipelago have conducted protests and occupations on some of the farms, which they say pose a threat to wild salmon stocks by spreading viruses, diseases and sea lice.Popham said talks between Broughton-area First Nations and the government about the future of the tenures are ongoing though she wouldn’t comment on their status. She said the tenures for those fish farms will now continue on a month-to-month basis until some form of agreement is reached.British Columbia’s 120 fish farm sites are located on Vancouver Island, the Sunshine Coast and the Central Coast.A court ruling in 2009 clarified that the federal government had jurisdiction over regulating the farms, and B.C. will look to the Department of Fisheries and Oceans to determine under what conditions the farms can operate without threatening wild salmon, Popham said.She said the four-year limit aligns with the 2022 renewal of licences for most of the fish farms currently operating in B.C.“B.C. is very aware that thousands of jobs depend on maintaining healthy marine environments, along with the livelihoods and economic prosperity of coastal communities and First Nations,” Popham said. “The challenges that face our wild salmon have been ignored for too long.”Chief Bob Chamberlin of the Kwikwasut’inuxw Haxwa’mis First Nation, who is part of the group of Indigenous nations negotiating the Broughton Archipelago tenures, said he’s pleased the government has expressed its commitment to protect and rehabilitate wild salmon populations.He said he’s also enthused salmon farm operators must demonstrate they have reached agreements with First Nations to locate in their territory.But the 2022 deadline is too far away, Chamberlin said, adding the First Nations in the Broughton Archipelago area have been negotiating with the B.C. government since January on how to address the expired fish farm tenures.“We just have to dot one more I and debate a comma and then we’ll be ready to sign this process document,” said Chamberlin. “But the opinion I express on behalf of our First Nation and the group at the table is 2022 is too long.”B.C. Salmon Farmers Association spokesman Shawn Hall said the government has introduced significant changes to rules overseeing the approval process for fish farms and the industry will rely on the relationships it has built with First Nations.Salmon farms generate $1.5 billion annually in the B.C. economy and employ 6,600 people, he said.Green party MLA Adam Olsen said in a statement the new policy puts wild salmon at risk and does not address First Nations concerns.The BC Liberals said the government’s new tenure policy sends the wrong message about economic stability in the province.Resource opportunities critic Ellis Ross said in a statement the government has ignored the thousands of Indigenous people employed in the fish-farm industry.Last week, the government announced a 14-member advisory council, established to help restore and preserve B.C.’s wild salmon populations.last_img read more

Bangladesh UN agency seeks solution for 6000 Myanmar refugees facing eviction

12 Oct 2019

The United Nations refugee agency is working with the Bangladeshi government, donors and partners to find more permanent housing for some 6,000 Muslim refugees from Myanmar whose riverbed settlement is threatened by a crackdown on illegal structures. “These people are of concern to us and we want to help them,” UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) country representative Pia Prytz Phiri said of the settlement, which perches perilously beside a busy road in Teknaf, 75 kilometres south of Cox’s Bazar in south-east Bangladesh. “It is hard to imagine human beings living in much more deplorable conditions than those in Teknaf. We understand why the government doesn’t want them living there, but to move them without having prepared any solution in advance is not very humane,” she added. The refugees, regarded by the Government as illegal migrants rather than legitimate refugees, set up the camp in October 2004, nearly two years after they had been evicted from rented homes in nearby villages in an earlier crackdown, “simply because we are Myanmarese,” according to one camp dweller. UNHCR has not been allowed to help them, except to distribute some plastic sheeting last year. The medical non-governmental organization (NGO), Médecins Sans Frontières-Holland, was recently allowed to open a health clinic there. The refugees’ homes are flimsy structures of bamboo, plastic sheets and flattened cement bags on muddy ground, where as many as 16 people crowd together in a room slightly larger than a garden shed. For fully half of each month, the refugees said, high tides flood nearly all shacks, bring disease, and some children have even drowned. Women spend much of their time repairing the mud foundations of the huts. Ms. Phiri said a solution needed to be found but “what we don’t want to do is to set up a formal camp.” UNHCR agency already runs two official camps south of Cox’s Bazar housing some 26,000 refugees and UNHCR sub-office head Jim Worrall suggested that the simplest step would be to allow the Teknaf refugees “just to go back to the villages where they were living peacefully with local people before 2004.” 8 March 2007The United Nations refugee agency is working with the Bangladeshi government, donors and partners to find more permanent housing for some 6,000 Muslim refugees from Myanmar whose riverbed settlement is threatened by a crackdown on illegal structures. read more

Sri Lanka UN tsunami envoy Clinton hopes assassination will not renew fighting

06 Oct 2019

“I am shocked and personally saddened by the assassination of Sri Lanka’s Foreign Minister Lakshman Kadirgamar,” Mr. Clinton said in a statement. “Since December 26, 2004, the people of Sri Lanka have demonstrated enormous courage and determination in their efforts to promote recovery in the aftermath of the tsunami,” he added. “The ceasefire in Sri Lanka has helped foster an environment conducive to reconstruction, and I hope that the people of Sri Lanka will persevere in their efforts to avoid a renewal of hostilities.” Two months ago, Mr. Clinton voiced the hope that the disaster would usher in a new chapter in the peace process in Sri Lanka, where the Government and Tamil separatists have waged a decades-old war, thereby making it easier for aid to be distributed and reconstruction to take place. read more

With world at epic crossroads UN seems like its on silent mode

02 Oct 2019

“It’s time to break the silence and start finding answers. In doing so, we can unleash a global current that carries our common humanity to safer shores,” said the 23-year-old Crown Prince, addressing the General Assembly two years after he chaired a Security Council meeting which adopted an historic resolution on ‘youth, peace and security,’ aimed at empowering young people to participate in peace efforts.“Today, I stand before you […] as a member of the largest generation of young people in history [with] the world at an epic intersection, driven by the confluence of deepened globalization and disruptive technologies,” he said, and amid such seismic changes, young people are asking, among other questions: In which direction does our collective moral compass point, and can it guide us safely to justice, prosperity and peace for all?Drawing on the experience of his own country to explore those issues, he noted that Jordan has been affected by border conflicts, as well as by the global financial crisis and the energy crisis. Speaking about the direct cost of the Syria crisis on his country, which has been hosting 1.3 million Syrian refugees, he said that crisis is now consuming more than a quarter of the Jordan’s budget.“Housing, food, energy, healthcare, education, jobs: all are under pressure,” he added, underlining that the country is not turning its back on people in need, but needs answers for its youth.“How can it be that a country as small as ours struggles in the face of such crushing adversity, only to be told that its friends are suffering from donor fatigue? Financial institutions often remind us that on a per capita basis, we are a top recipient of aid. Yet, on a per capita basis, few countries have endured as many external shocks or contributed to global peace and security as Jordan has,” he said.The sad reality is that war economies are thriving to the benefit of a few, while real economies are suffering to the detriment of all. “It just doesn’t add up,” he said, calling on the international community to start asking tough questions, work harder to involve young people in finding the answers to bolster the values that anchor global citizenship today.Full statement available here read more

Vigil and memorial fund being organized for slain student

02 Oct 2019

A vigil will be held on the Brock University campus Friday, Dec. 8 to honour first-year Medical Sciences student Yosif Al-Hasnawi, who was killed in Hamilton on Saturday night while trying to stop an altercation.A memorial fund is also being organized to create a scholarship in Al-Hasnawi’s name to remember the 19-year-old Hamilton resident.“Yosif’s death devastated us, but we plan to look further into it and make sure his death is not forgotten, which is why this vigil and his memorial fund are so important to us,” said Student Justice Centre Supervisor Zanab Jafry, a fourth-year Brock student.She said the Student Justice Centre is concerned with the witness reports of Al-Hasnawi not being treated well by paramedics.“The devastation is two-fold. One because he was killed, but also because he didn’t get the treatment he needed,” she said. “We want to make sure what happened to Yosif is not just remembered, but that it’s corrected and that our society learns from this in future.”Jafry, who is in the same Medical Sciences program as Al-Hasnawi, said Brock faculty, staff and students, as well as some of Yosif’s family members and spiritual leaders, will take part in the Friday vigil.The service will take place at 3 p.m. in Academic South Room 216. More information can be found on the Student Justice Centre Facebook page.“Yosif wanted to help people. He lived his life that way and it seems that’s also how he died — in the service of others,” Jafry said.In addition, donations are now being collected to establish the Yosif Al-Hasnawi Memorial Fund, which will be used to establish a scholarship in his name. Donations can be made online at brocku.ca/donate or by phone at 905-688-5550 x4190.Cheques payable to “Brock University” with “In memory of Yosif Al-Hasnawi” in the reference line can be mailed to Development and Alumni Relations, Brock University, 1812 Sir Isaac Brock Way, St. Catharines, ON L2S 3A1. read more

Live Manchester attack latest Two more men arrested and controlled explosion carried

25 Sep 2019

first_imgDetectives have made “immense” progress in the investigation into the Manchester bombing and are confident they have arrested some “key players”, Britain’s top counter-terror officer has said.Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said police have made “significant” arrests and “finds” and have got hold of a “large part of the network” being sought over the atrocity.Mr Rowley said: “They are very significant, these arrests.”We are very happy we’ve got our hands around some of the key players that we are concerned about but there’s still a little bit more to do.” A relative of the 22-year-old said he had felt increasing frustration at his treatment in the UK, heightened after a friend was fatally knifed in what he perceived to be a religious hate crime.She added that the British-born bomber began referring to others in the country as “infidels” who were “unjust to Arabs”.Libyan authorities, who are questioning Abedi’s parents and siblings, claimed he made a final phone call to his mother on the eve of the attack, in which he said: “Forgive me.”Music fans were targeted at an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena in the worst terrorist attack on British soil since the July 7 bombing in London in 2005.As Abedi’s route to mass murder continued to be probed:Downing Street announced the Government’s emergency Cobra committee will meet in Whitehall on Friday morning to discuss the latest developments, chaired by the Home Secretary.Officers also carried out searches at properties in Manchester, Wigan and Nuneaton. A bomb disposal unit returned to the Wigan address on Thursday night so experts could examine “potentially suspicious items”.British investigative efforts remained focused on smashing the potential terror ring which may have assisted Abedi, despite the belief of Libyan authorities that he acted alone.Twenty-three people remained in critical care across eight hospitals. They included five children at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.British Transport Police announced that specialist firearms officers are to patrol on trains nationwide for the first time.NHS England warned health organisations to “ensure care is in place should it be needed” as Britain remained on high alert in the run-up to the bank holiday weekend.A man and a woman arrested as part of the probe were released without charge.At the Nato summit in Brussels, Theresa May confronted Donald Trump with her concerns about security lapses which allowed crucial evidence to be handed to US journalists by his officials.He vowed to investigate, calling the leaks “deeply troubling” and warning the sources of the security lapse could be prosecuted. In St Ann’s Square, boxer Khan said: “I just wanted to come here and show my respects.”Obviously it’s a very sad time for Manchester. I have to say, the people of Manchester are very brave and we all have to stick together and get through things like this.”I believe in the people of Manchester, they’re very strong and we just have to all stick together.”I’ve come here to show my respects and I can’t believe the amount of people I have met here who are here for the same reason as me, showing their respects and laying flowers down.” Jeremy Corbyn delivers his speech on Friday morningCredit:Jonathan Brady/PA We stand with the UK. We know this kind of attacks. We will do everything we can to increase cooperation against terrorism. @theresa_may pic.twitter.com/gfeTmisK9Q— Emmanuel Macron (@EmmanuelMacron) May 26, 2017 It is now believed that Salman Abedi built the bomb himselfCredit:AP  A detective removes items from a barbers shop in Moss Side 4:32PMMassive security review for Bank Holiday weekend Meanwhile, with the General Election campaign resuming, Jeremy Corbyn’s suggestion that Britain’s involvement in military action abroad is linked to the Manchester attack has been condemned as “twisted reasoning” by the Security Minister. Meanwhile, it is has emerged that police fear the Manchester bomber might have built a second device that is now in the hands of fellow jihadists.Officers who raided the home of Salman Abedi discovered a working bomb factory with a huge stash of explosive chemicals and other components.Security sources now believe that Abedi assembled the bomb himself after learning his trade in Libya.But the amount of material in his home has led to fears that he could have built more than one device and and distributed them to other British-based extremists. 10:45AMMore details of those arrested released by police 3:07PM#ForManchester posters at Manchester Central Park Mosque 1:51PMGreat City Games and Great Manchester run to go ahead despite terror threat Hundreds of tourists have watched the Changing of the Guard ceremonies at Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle.The popular events were cancelled on Wednesday in the wake of the Manchester attack to allow police officers, who would have been controlling road closures, to be re-deployed.But a Ministry of Defence spokeswoman said the colourful spectacles, that attract large crowds to the Queen’s official London home and her Berkshire castle, would go ahead as scheduled.In bright summer sunshine, visitors to the capital watched as F Company the Scots Guards marched to replace the Buckingham Palace old guard of the Queen’s Colour Squadron, RAF. After yesterday’s transatlantic row over Manchester security leaks in America, US secretary of state Rex Tillerson is making his first official visit to the UK today for talks with Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson from 11am.The Foreign Office said the visit was “an expression of UK-US solidarity” following the terrorist attack in ManchesterThe pair will write messages of condolence for the victims and hold talks on a range of foreign policy issues.However, the visit will be seen as an attempt to repair the rift that opened up over the intelligence leaks. Salman Abedi Good morning and welcome to our live coverage of the fallout for the Manchester Arena bombing.We’ve been hearing overnight that counter-terror police have carried out new raids in connection with the attack, searching addresses in Manchester and Merseyside.One man was arrested in the Moss Side area of Manchester in the early hours of Friday morning and detectives searched a property in St Helens.Eight men are in custody in connection with Monday’s atrocity, with police and security agencies working at pace amid fears of further attacks. Meanwhile, with the General Election campaign due to resume on Friday, Jeremy Corbyn has signalled his intention to bring the issue of terrorism into the political arena.The Labour leader is expected to make a veiled attack on the Conservatives for underfunding the police service at a time of heightened threat, while linking Britain’s overseas military campaigns with terrorism at home.On Thursday, UK police resumed “working closely” with US authorities on the probe after a tense showdown between the allies over leaked intelligence.With Britain on critical alert, a huge operation is under way to dismantle a suspected “network” linked to suicide Abedi, who killed 22 people – seven of them under 18. 5:14PM’A lot of the risk contained, but still some uncertainty’ Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley discloses that police have reviewed security at more than 1,300 events around the country ahead of the bank holiday weekend.But he issued a message of reassurance to the public.”Go out as you planned. Enjoy yourselves and be reassured by the greater policing presence you will see.”We can’t let the terrorists win by dissuading us from going about our normal business.” Speaking after chairing a meeting of the Government’s emergency Cobra committee, Home Secretary Amber Rudd disclosed that the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre has assessed that the terror threat level should remain at critical while the “live” police operation continues.The rating was raised to critical, the highest level, for the first time in a decade in the wake of the Manchester outrage. It indicates that an attack may be imminent. The “I Love MCR” signs have been popping up at sites across Manchester.

This is not going to divide us. Life carries on and we’re standing united.”  A police cordon is in place around the Fade Away barbershop in Princess Road, Moss Side, after a police raid early today.The shutters were down on the shop but part of it appeared to have been smashed open to gain access to the front door. A cordon was then placed around the building at 6am, which stretches to an adjoining chemist, cafe and upstairs flats.A marked police van is parked outside the store next to a bus stop with a number of officers guarding the cordon.

Your targeting of the so-called innocents and civilians is beloved by us and the most effective, so go forth and may you get a great reward or martyrdom in Ramadan.”Last year, Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, the late Isil spokesman, issued a call to arms to followers to carry out lone wolf attacks during the holy month.

We always need the public’s help to defeat terrorism by being extra vigilant and letting us know of any suspicious behaviour or activity.”“Terrorists want to create discord in our communities, but Merseyside has a long history of our communities living and working together. This is a time for us all to work closely together and unite against those who seek, through violence and extremism, to divide us.  “Public safety is the paramount concern for the police and will continue to be our top priority and we have a duty to act and protect the public.

A former independent terror watchdog has said it was a “grave mistake” to abolish control orders to monitor terrorism suspects.Lord Carlile said the sweeping powers “may have saved dozens of lives” between 2005 and 2011.The independent peer and top QC also urged Theresa May to use their replacements “to their full effect now”, with just a handful of people currently subject to terrorism prevention and investigation measures (TPIMs).Control orders restricted the freedom of terrorism suspects and could be used to force people to move or restrict their use of phones and computers.But they were abolished by the coalition government in 2012 amid concerns over their impact on civil liberties. Lord Carlile told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme:”In my view control orders worked very well in the period between 2005 and 2011. Although they were criticised for breaching civil liberties, in fact they were upheld by the courts, every control order was subject to automatic review by senior judges.”Fifty-three people were placed on control orders, 23 of them with relocation requirements and restrictions on their use of the internet and so on.”I believe that may have saved dozens of lives and my view is that it was a grave mistake by the coalition government to remove control orders and to produce something more dilute. I do wish at least that TPIMs would be used to their full effect now.”TPIMs place restrictions on those suspected of being involved in terrorism, but where there is not enough evidence to charge or deport them.Just seven people are subject to TPIMs at the moment, Lord Carlile said, adding that they were “better than nothing”.Lord Carlile was previously a Liberal Democrat peer but quit the party given its stance on security issues.

Arrive earlier as there will be additional security and entry searches which may take a bit longer than fans are used to.“Our operations will include a range of highly visible but also covert and discrete tactics and this will run far beyond the final whistle and away from specific stadia. This will also apply right throughout the transport network.” A police officer stands outside a barber's shop in Moss Side which was raided by officers in Manchester Assistant Commissioner Rowley outlined a number of strands of the investigation into the attack:Finances – Officers are mounting a large-scale financial investigation, with Mr Rowley saying: “We are interested in equipment people have bought bearing in mind a bomb was constructed.” Communications – Police are looking back at communications and working closely with technology firms. Exhibits – Investigators have seized large volumes of material during searches of a number of properties and expect to amass hundreds of electronic devices.CCTV – Police are trawling through footage on local cameras to establish movements and patterns of activity in the lead up to the attack. Witnesses – Officers are working to “triage” hundreds of statements from those caught up in the bombing. International inquiries – Detectives are probing links to Libya as well as liaising with counterparts across Europe and elsewhere.

The following day he visited the Arndale shopping centre in Manchester, where he was caught on CCTV buying a Karrimor rucksack.It is believed he then spent the weekend putting together the main components of the device, including the detonator.On Monday he then travelled the three miles from his home in Elsmore Road in the Fallowfield district to a rented apartment in Granby Row on the edge of Manchester’s Gay Village.The building was raided by special forces at lunchtime on Wednesdayand specialist forensics teams and bomb squad operatives were still at the building on Thursday.Sources believe Abedi may have used the £75 a night apartment to put all the components of the device together, before heading off late on Monday evening to make his way to the Manchester Arena where he killed 22 people.The use of two addresses to assemble the device was a tactic used by the 7/7 bombers who also spent months learning how to build a bomb at a training camp in Pakistan.Former Metropolitan Police officer, David Videcette, who helped investigate the tube bombings said it was likely Abedi had spent many months abroad practising how to assemble a device before returning to the UK.He said: “This is not something you can just put together by reading a book or watching a YouTube video. He will have spent time at a camp somewhere, possibly in Libya, being shown how to do it. “But once you have the skills and the materials, assembling the device itself can be done fairly quickly.”Click here for more.

A bomb disposal unit returned to the Wigan address on Thursday night so experts could examine “potentially suspicious items”.British investigative efforts remained focused on smashing the potential terror ring which may have assisted Abedi, despite the belief of Libyan authorities that he acted alone.Twenty-three people remained in critical care across eight hospitals. They included five children at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.British Transport Police announced that specialist firearms officers are to patrol on trains nationwide for the first time.NHS England warned health organisations to “ensure care is in place should it be needed” as Britain remained on high alert in the run-up to the bank holiday weekend.A man and a woman arrested as part of the probe were released without charge.At the Nato summit in Brussels, Theresa May confronted Donald Trump with her concerns about security lapses which allowed crucial evidence to be handed to US journalists by his officials.He vowed to investigate, calling the leaks “deeply troubling” and warning the sources of the security lapse could be prosecuted.

Salman Abedi Good morning and welcome to our live coverage of the fallout for the Manchester Arena bombing.We’ve been hearing overnight that counter-terror police have carried out new raids in connection with the attack, searching addresses in Manchester and Merseyside.One man was arrested in the Moss Side area of Manchester in the early hours of Friday morning and detectives searched a property in St Helens.Eight men are in custody in connection with Monday’s atrocity, with police and security agencies working at pace amid fears of further attacks. Meanwhile, with the General Election campaign due to resume on Friday, Jeremy Corbyn has signalled his intention to bring the issue of terrorism into the political arena.The Labour leader is expected to make a veiled attack on the Conservatives for underfunding the police service at a time of heightened threat, while linking Britain’s overseas military campaigns with terrorism at home.On Thursday, UK police resumed “working closely” with US authorities on the probe after a tense showdown between the allies over leaked intelligence.With Britain on critical alert, a huge operation is under way to dismantle a suspected “network” linked to suicide Abedi, who killed 22 people – seven of them under 18. 5:14PM’A lot of the risk contained, but still some uncertainty’ Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley discloses that police have reviewed security at more than 1,300 events around the country ahead of the bank holiday weekend.But he issued a message of reassurance to the public.”Go out as you planned. Enjoy yourselves and be reassured by the greater policing presence you will see.”We can’t let the terrorists win by dissuading us from going about our normal business.” Speaking after chairing a meeting of the Government’s emergency Cobra committee, Home Secretary Amber Rudd disclosed that the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre has assessed that the terror threat level should remain at critical while the “live” police operation continues.The rating was raised to critical, the highest level, for the first time in a decade in the wake of the Manchester outrage.

Your targeting of the so-called innocents and civilians is beloved by us and the most effective, so go forth and may you get a great reward or martyrdom in Ramadan.”Last year, Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, the late Isil spokesman, issued a call to arms to followers to carry out lone wolf attacks during the holy month.

We always need the public’s help to defeat terrorism by being extra vigilant and letting us know of any suspicious behaviour or activity.”“Terrorists want to create discord in our communities, but Merseyside has a long history of our communities living and working together. This is a time for us all to work closely together and unite against those who seek, through violence and extremism, to divide us.  “Public safety is the paramount concern for the police and will continue to be our top priority and we have a duty to act and protect the public.

A former independent terror watchdog has said it was a “grave mistake” to abolish control orders to monitor terrorism suspects.Lord Carlile said the sweeping powers “may have saved dozens of lives” between 2005 and 2011.The independent peer and top QC also urged Theresa May to use their replacements “to their full effect now”, with just a handful of people currently subject to terrorism prevention and investigation measures (TPIMs).Control orders restricted the freedom of terrorism suspects and could be used to force people to move or restrict their use of phones and computers.But they were abolished by the coalition government in 2012 amid concerns over their impact on civil liberties. Lord Carlile told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme:”In my view control orders worked very well in the period between 2005 and 2011. Although they were criticised for breaching civil liberties, in fact they were upheld by the courts, every control order was subject to automatic review by senior judges.”Fifty-three people were placed on control orders, 23 of them with relocation requirements and restrictions on their use of the internet and so on.”I believe that may have saved dozens of lives and my view is that it was a grave mistake by the coalition government to remove control orders and to produce something more dilute. I do wish at least that TPIMs would be used to their full effect now.”TPIMs place restrictions on those suspected of being involved in terrorism, but where there is not enough evidence to charge or deport them.Just seven people are subject to TPIMs at the moment, Lord Carlile said, adding that they were “better than nothing”.Lord Carlile was previously a Liberal Democrat peer but quit the party given its stance on security issues.

The focus is the safety and security of fans. “Anyone coming to the FA Cup Final or the other play off matches over the weekend will see an increase in police numbers in and around the stadium.“This will include extra armed officers on foot patrol around the environs of the Stadium, and the deployment of police armoured vehicles to support road closures.“At Twickenham rugby fans will see more armed officers on foot around the stadium.“If you have a ticket for any of the matches please help us out. Arrive earlier as there will be additional security and entry searches which may take a bit longer than fans are used to.“Our operations will include a range of highly visible but also covert and discrete tactics and this will run far beyond the final whistle and away from specific stadia. This will also apply right throughout the transport network.” A police officer stands outside a barber's shop in Moss Side which was raided by officers in Manchester Assistant Commissioner Rowley outlined a number of strands of the investigation into the attack:Finances – Officers are mounting a large-scale financial investigation, with Mr Rowley saying: “We are interested in equipment people have bought bearing in mind a bomb was constructed.” Communications – Police are looking back at communications and working closely with technology firms. Exhibits – Investigators have seized large volumes of material during searches of a number of properties and expect to amass hundreds of electronic devices.CCTV – Police are trawling through footage on local cameras to establish movements and patterns of activity in the lead up to the attack. Witnesses – Officers are working to “triage” hundreds of statements from those caught up in the bombing. International inquiries – Detectives are probing links to Libya as well as liaising with counterparts across Europe and elsewhere.

The following day he visited the Arndale shopping centre in Manchester, where he was caught on CCTV buying a Karrimor rucksack.It is believed he then spent the weekend putting together the main components of the device, including the detonator.On Monday he then travelled the three miles from his home in Elsmore Road in the Fallowfield district to a rented apartment in Granby Row on the edge of Manchester’s Gay Village.The building was raided by special forces at lunchtime on Wednesdayand specialist forensics teams and bomb squad operatives were still at the building on Thursday.Sources believe Abedi may have used the £75 a night apartment to put all the components of the device together, before heading off late on Monday evening to make his way to the Manchester Arena where he killed 22 people.The use of two addresses to assemble the device was a tactic used by the 7/7 bombers who also spent months learning how to build a bomb at a training camp in Pakistan.Former Metropolitan Police officer, David Videcette, who helped investigate the tube bombings said it was likely Abedi had spent many months abroad practising how to assemble a device before returning to the UK.He said: “This is not something you can just put together by reading a book or watching a YouTube video. He will have spent time at a camp somewhere, possibly in Libya, being shown how to do it. “But once you have the skills and the materials, assembling the device itself can be done fairly quickly.”Click here for more.

It took me a while before I grasped the reality that we were actually going home.

It took me a while before I grasped the reality that we were actually going home.

Irish scientists have made a breakthrough in superfast computers

22 Sep 2019

first_imgSCIENTISTS AT AMBER (Advanced Materials and BioEngineering Research) have discovered a new magnetic material which they say could lead to superfast technology and energy efficient data storage.The research group, which is based in Trinity College Dublin and was led by AMBER’s principal investigator Professor Michael Coey, created a new world-first alloy called MRG, which consists of manganese, ruthenium and gallium.The alloy is magnetic, and internally, it has the same strength as the strongest magnets available today.It’s created by using established industry-standard processes for making the electronic circuits on silicon chips, meaning its creation can be adopted by computer and electronics companies relatively easily.It could be used for limitless data storage, resulting in superfast memory in personal computer devices, and could eliminate the potential of external magnetic forces to ‘wipe’ computer data.In a statement, Professor Michael Coey said that the discovery could have significant implications on the future development of electronics, considering how much of a role magnets play in technology.Given its unique insensitivity to magnetic fields, and the tenacity of its internal magnetic properties, MRG could now revolutionise how data is stored, which could have major implications for the future development of electronics, information technology and a host of other applications.Back in April, the same organisation achieved a breakthrough in the production of graphene, a ‘wonder material’ that’s extremely difficult to produce. It discovered a way to produce the material, which could be used to provide the next generation of batteries, biomedical sensors, and water filtration, in industrial quantities.AMBER is funded by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through Science Foundation Ireland.Read: ‘Supercool’ breakthrough in organ transplants could make massive difference, says scientists >Read: Nasa cancels satellite launch to track climate change with just 46 seconds to go >last_img read more

Wynn Resorts dismisses advisory report backing Elaine Wynn campaign against director

16 Sep 2019

first_imgWynn Resorts has dismissed the findings of a damning report by leading shareholder advisory firm Glass Lewis into its corporate governance ahead of next week’s annual general meeting as the battle between the company and its largest shareholder Elaine Wynn heats up.The report, released late last week, sided with Elaine Wynn in her “Withhold the vote” campaign against current Wynn Resorts director John “Jay” Hagenbuch, who is up for re-election. In an April filing, the former wife of Steve Wynn described Hagenbuch’s appointment to a special committee investigating sexual misconduct allegations against Steve Wynn as a deeply troubling conflict of interest. She also raised his service on the compensation committee since 2013 as a matter of concern due to questions over remunerations previously offered to former Chairman and CEO Steve Wynn. RelatedPosts In its report, Glass Lewis said it saw “greater value” for shareholders in supporting Elaine Wynn’s objection to Hagenbuch’s nomination, “which should be considered against his questionable role on the special committee reviewing accusations against Mr Wynn and his shared culpability for years of misaligned compensation practices that Glass Lewis continues to believe are problematic.”Glass Lewis also accused Wynn Resorts of being “tone deaf” in its original handling of accusations of sexual misconduct leveled at Steve Wynn in February.“Given the gravity of the allegations in question, the possibly adverse impact on portions of Wynn’s business and the decidedly nascent phase of the special committee’s process at that point in time, we consider the issuance of such a statement is fairly tone deaf in terms of timing and cultural context,” Glass Lewis said.Wynn Resorts was quick to respond to the report, accusing Glass Lewis of failing to recognize recent initiatives to refresh the board and Hagenbuch’s contributions in regard to the appointment last month of three new female directors in Betsy Atkins, Dee Dee Myers and Wendy Webbas.“We are disappointed that they have failed to acknowledge the important contributions that Jay Hagenbuch has made in helping to drive positive change at Wynn,” the company said in a filing. “As a fully independent member of the board who is committed to acting in the best interests of our shareholders, his knowledge of the company, our financial operations and industry environment contribute meaningfully to the Special Committee’s work.“This board has acted swiftly and decisively by driving a refreshment process that has taken an important first step through the addition of three highly qualified female directors who strengthen the board’s skill sets, experience and diversity. The board’s actions have demonstrated that it is committed to moving swiftly and decisively to improve corporate governance and accountability, all while preserving shareholder value. Each of our nominees and the full board understand that we have a mandate to drive change and to move Wynn forward.“The board has made great strides in restoring stability at Wynn, and it is not in shareholder interests to risk derailing the progress we are making.”Wynn Resorts also pointed to concerns raised by Glass Lewis over Elaine Wynn’s “Withhold the vote” campaign, with the report stating, “We believe Ms Wynn’s campaign suffers from certain key flaws, not the least of which relate to asking investors to partially front-run key regulatory developments, pre-suppose management’s strategy around key assets and overlook her part in enabling the very corporate governance mechanisms that now limit the practicable avenues to effect meaningful change to the status quo.” Load More Wynn Resorts to undergo internal restructure as part of refinancing plan Wynn Resorts shares favored over Wynn Macau: analysts Mass market growth keeps Wynn afloat as Macau revenues rise 1.0% in 2Q19last_img read more

With School Choice Resolution Legislature Revisits Voucher Question

09 Sep 2019

first_imgWith a crowd of charter school students in the gallery, the Alaska State House used a school choice resolution as a proxy for a debate on vouchers on Monday. APRN’s Alexandra Gutierrez reports.Download AudioThe resolution was offered by Wasilla Republican Lynn Gattis, and it designates the last week in January as Alaska School Choice Week. The motion specifically recognizes such options as traditional public schools, private schools, charter schools, and home education.“This truly comes down to a parents right to how they choose to educate their child,” said Gattis.Resolutions do not create statutes or carry real legislative weight — they’re mostly a way for lawmakers to express their feelings on a matter. But because legislation that would allow public funding to go to private schools has been introduced in the past, the discussion over school choice week took on added significance. Rep. Andy Josephson, an Anchorage Democrat, objected to the resolution because of its connection with National School Choice Week. He said that because of its funders, the movement struck him as less grassroots and more astroturf.“The National School School Choice Week is actually very corporate. It is very pro-voucher. It’s generally — generally – anti-labor,” said Josephson. “It absolutely has an objective at least partially to privatize education.”Josephson pointed to financial support from the Friedman Foundation for Education Choice and from the Walton family, who owns the Wal-Mart chain.Anchorage Democrat Max Gruenberg had some concerns that a line in the resolution about “providing children with multiple educational options” could be read as the Legislature supporting school vouchers.“That basically could be read and would be read, if this resolution is read carefully, with this Legislature getting into areas that have significant constitutional questions,” said Gruenberg.But Majority Leader Charisse Millett, an Anchorage Republican, pushed back on these interpretations of the resolution, arguing that the opposition was reading text that was not there.“I guess I might have a different copy of the resolution,” said Millett. “I think I’m pretty sure I’m looking at the right one. But nowhere in my resolution, Mr. Speaker, do I see wording of constitutional amendments, or vouchers, or religious schools, or anything of that nature.”The resolution ultimately passed 21 to 14, with all members of Democratic minority opposing the motion, along with Kodiak Republican Louise Stutes.During the last Legislature, Sen. Mike Dunleavy, a Republican from the Mat-Su, introduced a constitutional amendment that would have allowed state funding to go to private educational institutions. The legislation made it through hearings in the Senate, but did not have enough support to be scheduled for a vote on the floor.Dunleavy has no plans at this time to reintroduce that amendment.last_img read more

Evolution of magnetic field in the starforming complex G962019 revealed by ALMA

31 Aug 2019

first_img High-mass stars play important role in the evolution of the universe. However, their physical mechanisms of formation are still not fully understood. For instance, one of the debated subjects is how magnetic fields of star-forming regions influence the formation and evolution of such massive stars.Observations of G9.62+0.19 (G9.62) could help resolve these uncertainties. This well-studied star-forming complex, located some 17,000 light years away, showcases several cores at different evolutionary stages. This region exhibits a fairly well established evolutionary sequence, and high-mass star formation is taking place there on a scale of several light years.A team of astronomers led by Daria Dall’Olio of Onsala Space Observatory in Sweden decided to observe G9.62 with ALMA, as its capabilities enable tracing magnetic fields even close to the inner parts of the star-forming cores. The observational campaign allowed them to investigate the magnetic field of G9.62 by analyzing its dust emission at 1 mm.”We aim to determine the magnetic field morphology and strength in the high-mass star-forming region G9.62+0.19 to investigate its relation to the evolutionary sequence of the cores. We make use of Atacama Large Millimeter Array observations in full polarization mode at 1 mm wavelength (Band 7) and we analyze the polarized dust emission,” the astronomers wrote in the paper.ALMA observations allowed the researchers to identify 23 protostellar cores and substructures in G9.62. Fundamental properties of these features were derived, such as their position, peak flux densities, integrated flux, position angles and spectral index. These data uncovered important insights about the region’s magnetic field.”In general, the magnetic field seemed to follow the direction of the filament, and it was perpendicular to the direction of the outflows emitted by some massive protostellar cores such has MM8a, MM7 and MM6. The cores that presented polarisation appeared to be less fragmented than the ones not showing polarised emission. At scales less than 0.1 pc, the magnetic field showed a neat and ordered pattern of polarisation vectors,” the paper reads.Furthermore, the researchers calculated that the strength of the magnetic field is at a level of about 11 mG. They also detected a linearly polarised molecular line, probably emitted thermally by methanol or carbon dioxide.All in all, the astronomers conclude that high magnetic field strength and the smooth polarised emission suggest that the magnetic field could play an important role in the star-forming processes in G9.62. They emphasized that the magnetic field could influence the fragmentation and the collapse process in this region, adding that the evolution of the cores could be magnetically regulated.

FDA bans some Mexican cilantro after feces found in fields

The FDA said the officials discovered the feces and toilet paper in fields and found that some of the farms had no running water or toilet facilities.The investigation also found dirty containers that had held cilantro and, at one firm, water that tested positive for the cyclospora parasite that caused the stomach illnesses.In its “import alert” issued Monday, the FDA said it suspects the contamination came from “contact with the parasite shed from the intestinal tract of humans” in the growing fields, contaminated water or harvesting, processing and packing activities.The ban will only affect certain shipments of fresh cilantro from Puebla from April through August, corresponding to the timing of the outbreaks.

The crowd have gathered to show their support for former Academy member and Permanent Secretary Sara Danius who stepped down last Thursday. (Fredrik Persson / TT via AP) center_img STOCKHOLM – Thousands of protesters called Thursday for the resignation of the secretive board that awards the Nobel Prize in Literature after a sex-abuse scandal linked to the prestigious Swedish academy forced the ouster of its first-ever woman head and tarnished the reputation of the coveted prize.The ugly internal feud has already reached the top levels of public life in the Scandinavian nation known for its promotion of gender equality, with the prime minister, the king and the Nobel board weighing in.On Thursday evening, thousands of protesters gathered on Stockholm’s picturesque Stortorget Square outside the headquarters of the Swedish Academy, which has awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature since 1901, to demand all of its remaining members resign. Parallel demonstrations were planned in Goteborg, Helsingborg, Eskilstuna, Vasteras, and Borgholm.The national protests have grown out of what began as Sweden’s own #MeToo moment in November when the country saw thousands of sexual misconduct allegations surfacing from all walks of life. It hit the academy when 18 women came forward with accusations against Jean-Claude Arnault, a major cultural figure in Sweden who is married to Katarina Frostenson, a poet who is a member of the academy.Police are investigating the allegations, which Arnault denies, but the case has exposed bitter divisions within the academy, whose members are appointed for life, and given rise to accusations of patriarchal leanings among some members.The turmoil began when some of the committee’s 18 members pushed for the removal of Frostenson after the allegations were levied against her husband, who runs a cultural club that has received money from the academy. In addition to sexual misconduct, Arnault is also accused of leaking Nobel winners’ names for years.After a closed-door vote failed to oust her, three male members behind the push — Klas Ostergren, Kjell Espmark and Peter Englund — themselves resigned. That prompted Horace Engdahl, a committee member who has supported Arnault, to label them a “clique of sore losers” and criticize the three for airing their case in public.He also lashed out at Sara Danius, the first woman to lead the Swedish Academy, who was forced out last week amid criticism from male members of her handling of the scandal. Danius, a Swedish literature historian at Stockholm University, had cut the academy’s ties with Arnault and hired investigators to examine its relationship to the club he ran with Frostenson. Their report is expected soon.Supporters of Danius have described her as progressive leader who pushed reforms that riled the old guard.At Thursday’s protests, many participants wore pussy-bow blouses like the ones worn by Danius. The high-necked blouses with a loosely tied bow at the neck have become a rallying symbol for those critical of the Swedish Academy’s handling of the case.Birgitta Hojlund, 70, who travelled several hours to attend the protest, said despite Sweden’s progressive image, women still face inequality. “There are still differences, in wages and in honours and in professions,” she said, calling for the Swedish academy to be “recreated from the bottom, and balance male and female.”“They’re pushing women away, saying that sexism is OK, in this academy,” agreed Torun Carrfors, a 31-year-old nurse. “They should leave, and we need to have new ones.”Last week, Frostenson announced she too was leaving the academy. On Thursday, a sixth member, writer Lotta Lotass, said she, was also planning to step down, citing backlash from tradition-minded male members of the board who questioned her credentials, the Dagens Nyheter newspaper reported.The departures of the highly respected women have given rise to a flurry of protests on social media.“Feminist battles happen every day,” wrote Swedish Culture Minister Alice Bah Kuhnke, who posted a picture of herself last week wearing a white pussy-bow blouse like those worn by Danius. Other Swedish women also posted pictures of themselves in the blouses as anger grew over Danius’ departure, including Social Affairs Minister Annika Strandhall, actress Helena Bergstrom and fashion designer Camilla Thulin.The public controversy has also given rise to concerns about the Swedish Academy losing its credibility and tarnishing the reputation of the Nobel Prize.“The Swedish Academy is an internationally acclaimed organization and it should stand for all the right values and at the present moment I don’t think they do,” said Carsten Greiff, a 32-year-old business developer, attending Thursday’s protest. “It’s dragging the international view of the Nobel Prize in the dirt.”King Carl XVI Gustaf said the resignations “risked seriously damaging” the academy, while Prime Minister Stefan Lofven emphasized the academy’s importance to Sweden and urged its members to “restore faith and respect.”“Trust in the Swedish Academy has been seriously damaged,” the Nobel Foundation said of the situation, while demanding the group take action to restore that trust.Despite the resignations the academy, founded by King Gustav III in 1786, does not currently have a mechanism for its lifetime-appointed board members to step down.The king — the academy’s patron, who must approve its secret votes— said Wednesday in the wake of the recent events he wants to change rules to allow resignations.“The number of members who do not actively participate in the academy’s work is now so large that it is seriously risking the academy’s ability to fulfil its important tasks,” he said._____Olsen reported from Copenhagen, Denmark.
