Time to end debate and build Trans Mountain pipeline president says

first_imgVANCOUVER – The president of a company planning a controversial pipeline expansion in Western Canada says the debate about Trans Mountain is over and its time to get on with construction.Ian Anderson of Kinder Morgan Canada says the company’s Trans Mountain pipeline has undergone the most rigorous environmental review process in the country’s history.The $7.4-billion pipeline proposal has prompted fierce opposition from environmentalists, First Nations, and the B.C. New Democrat government, all of whom are fighting the project in federal court.Anderson was in Vancouver addressing the region’s board of trade and Alberta Premier Rachel Notley was scheduled to deliver a keynote address later in the day.Grand Chief Stewart Phillip, head of the Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs, says in a statement that while politicians try to muster support for the project First Nations are planning costly delays that will force the expansion to be cancelled.Vancouver is one of several stops for Notley who is on a pro-pipeline tour across Canada touting the importance of the energy industry for the overall economy.last_img read more

PayPal ordered to disclose business account information to Canada Revenue Agency

first_imgCALGARY – The records of Canadians who use PayPal business accounts to make and receive payments will soon be in the hands of the federal government’s tax-collecting agency.The online payments company said Wednesday it has been given 45 days to hand over information identifying its account holders and the amount and number of payments they paid or received between Jan. 1, 2014, and last Friday to the Canada Revenue Agency.“We are required to disclose information about business account holders who have received or sent a payment,” it says on its website. “Affected account holders have been notified.”CRA spokesman Patrick Samson confirmed that the agency received Federal Court of Canada authorization to request the information, part of a crackdown on Canada’s underground economy.“Specifically, the CRA is seeking PayPal’s list of Canadian clients who have a commercial account, including the total value of their transactions (purchases and sales) from 2014 to the date of the requirement,” he said.“The information obtained through the unnamed persons requirement will allow the CRA to ensure that these individuals and corporations comply with their tax obligations under the Income Tax Act.”PayPal Canada says it has more than 6.4 million active users, although that includes personal accounts which are not affected by the CRA move.Hussein Warsame, a tax professor with the University of Calgary’s School of Public Policy, linked the data grab to the federal government’s 2017 budget, which provided a five-year funding boost to the CRA to fight tax evasion by investigating the underground economy.“They think people who use PayPal are probably avoiding tax and therefore they’re using the extra funding to basically look for low-hanging fruit,” he said.“It is a fishing expedition, in many ways.”He said the agency is likely offering the 45-day window to allow people who haven’t paid their taxes as required to file tax revision forms and come back into compliance with the tax act.Warsame said the files could allow the CRA to identify people who have had more than $30,000 in business revenue over 12 months, which means they should be registered to collect and remit the GST.It also may identify people or corporations who owe corporate or personal income taxes. If caught, they will have to pay the tax, plus penalties and interest. If the tax avoidance is deliberate, it could be considered tax evasion and result in a criminal charge, he said.He said Canadians are required to retain tax records for six years and recommended that PayPal customers pull together their records to prepare for potential audits.Follow @HealingSlowly on Twitter.last_img read more

45 sites nominated this year for inclusion on UNESCO World Heritage List

The committee that oversees requests for inscription on the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization’s World Heritage List will have 45 nominated sites to choose from when it meets for its annual session next month in New Zealand, UNESCO has announced. The nominated sites this year include 11 natural sites (one of which is an extension to a site already listed), 32 cultural sites and two mixed sites, according to a press release issued by UNESCO yesterday. Some 39 countries are presenting sites for inscription, while two of the nominated sites cross national boundaries.The 21-member World Heritage Committee, comprised of representatives of the 184 States Parties to UNESCO’s 1972 Convention on the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage, is holding its annual session in Christchurch from 23 June to 2 July.Each year the committee adds new sites to the World Heritage List, and there are now 830 sites of “outstanding universal value” that have been inscribed – including 644 cultural sites, 162 natural sites and 24 mixed sites.Under the nominating process, States Parties propose sites, and their applications are reviewed by either the International Council on Monuments and Sites or the World Conservation Union before the committee decides whether to inscribe the sites on the World Heritage List.This year’s nominated sites come from the following countries: Albania, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cambodia, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Gabon, Germany, Greece, India, Iraq, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Madagascar, Mexico, Namibia, Philippines, Poland, Republic of Korea, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, the United Kingdom and Viet Nam.During the session in Christchurch, the committee will examine the state of conservation of 31 World Heritage sites which have been inscribed on a separate list of World Heritage in Danger because of threats from natural disasters, pillaging, pollution, poorly managed mass tourism or other problems.That list includes the cultural landscape and archaeological remains of the Bamiyan Valley in Afghanistan and the Okapi Wildlife Reserve in the northeast of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).A working session will be devoted to the state of conservation of the Old City of Jerusalem and its Walls, UNESCO said, adding the session would focus in particular on the recent archaeological excavations at the Mughrabi ascent.The committee will also examine a strategy to reduce the risks to World Heritage sites posed by disasters, the impact of climate change and the definition of the concept of “outstanding universal value,” which serves as the basis for inscription on the list. 1 June 2007The committee that oversees requests for inscription on the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization’s World Heritage List will have 45 nominated sites to choose from when it meets for its annual session next month in New Zealand, UNESCO has announced. read more

Brothers who pocketed €8000 in cash from bartending at Dublin charity concert

first_imgBrothers who pocketed €8,000 in cash from bartending at Dublin charity concert given community service Brothers John and Conal McGinley had pleaded guilty to one count of theft at the July 2016 gig in Dublin’s Marlay Park. 23 Comments Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article 42,788 Views Share83 Tweet Email4 http://jrnl.ie/3444358 Source: Shutterstock/Lucky_LiA LONDON FINANCIER and his university student brother who stole over €8,000 in cash while working as charity barmen at a music festival have been ordered to perform community service.25-year-old John McGinley stole €5,275 in cash, and his younger brother, Conal McGinley (22) stole €3,370, while they were working behind the bar in Marlay Park, Dublin for Workers Beer Company, a charity organisation that raises funds at music festivals.Both brothers, with an address at Belturbet, Co Cavan, pleaded guilty to one count of theft at Marlay Park on 8 July 2016.Dublin Circuit Criminal Court heard that wads of cash were found in the brothers’ pockets, shoes and their car after they were observed by gardaí to be pocketing money while working behind the bar instead of putting it in the charity bucket.John McGinley, who held a good job at a financial firm in London, had at the time fallen into the hands of loan sharks while gambling in the UK. Conal McGinley was completing a degree in business at the time.The court heard that John McGinley committed the offence because of this gambling debt, and Conal McGinley took the money to help his brother out. Both men made immediate admissions when interviewed by gardaí. They have no previous convictions.Judge Cormac Quinn said both young men were highly educated, having attended third level education. They came from a good family, and had experienced stigma in their own community as a result of the offence.He noted both men had also lost employment opportunities as a result of the matter.Judge Quinn ordered that the brothers each participate in 180 hours community service, within the next year, in lieu of 11 months’ imprisonment.The judge had originally ordered the community service in lieu of 12 months’ imprisonment but reduced this following a submission from Keith Spencer BL, for Conal McGinley, that a 12-month sentence “would close doors” in terms of immigration, if either of the young men wished to travel to America or another country in the future.Read: Care worker who locked out woman with intellectual disability awarded €15,000 for unfair dismissalRead: Man accused of abducting, and stealing savings from, his own elderly father granted bail Wednesday 14 Jun 2017, 5:54 PM By Liz Farsaci and Isabel Hayes Short URL Jun 14th 2017, 5:54 PM last_img read more

Curiosity le robot plus fort que la tempête solaire

first_imgCuriosity : le robot plus fort que la tempête solaireLa mission du robot Curiosity ne sera finalement pas compromise par la tempête solaire sur Mars.Alors que beaucoup de spécialistes craignaient que le robot Curiosity ne pâtisse des conséquences d’une lourde tempête solaire, dont les vents sont souvent très vifs, il n’en sera finalement rien. Le robot, dont on craignait qu’il ne puisse poursuivre son exploration, n’a finalement pas été endommagé par cette tempête solaire, dont les scientifiques redoutaient la violence, potentiellement dangereuse pour la suite de la mission.C’est l’équipe Twitter de la mission Curiosity qui a directement annoncé la bonne nouvelle, via le réseau social : “C’est tout ce que tu as dans le ventre Soleil ? La tempête est moins grave que prévue” a t-on pu lire. Depuis quelques semaines, la mission Curiosity connait quelques petits contretemps, à cause notamment de problèmes informatiques, qui “ont ralenti la progression de l’engin martien” selon BFM TV.

Bayer holds monthlong summer events programme for staff

first_imgLife sciences organisation Bayer has rewarded its UK-based staff with a summer activity programme, which included free lunchtime barbeques and an Olympics-themed event.Bayer, which employs 1,000 staff across three UK sites, introduced the ‘Cool Summer’ programme with the aim of creating a more relaxed atmosphere for employees over the summer, when staff numbers are often reduced while colleagues are on holiday.The month-long programme was held at the organisation’s head office in Newbury in August 2016, with around 500 employees taking part in one or more of the events.Inspired by the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Bayer held its own ‘Baylympics’ event as part of the summer programme, where employees represented different countries and were able to compete in a range of activities such as darts, Wii games and office chair racing.Winners’ prizes included vouchers for the staff restaurant, while those who preferred not to compete could still take part as games makers or spectators.As well providing free lunchtime barbeques, ice creams and cakes, Bayer also set up outdoor-themed open spaces for informal meetings with colleagues, featuring deck chairs and bean bags. Games such as a Lego board and giant jigsaws were available, and employees were also able to participate in an organisation-wide book swap initiative.Gary Bothe, head of HR at Bayer UK and Ireland, said: “We are driven by the passion to innovate and the power to change. The ethos to do things differently motivates our people. Our culture and how we treat our people is what helps us attract and retain the best talent in the industry. “Cool Summer has been a very popular initiative and, given its success, it’s something we’ll look to repeat on an annual basis.”last_img read more

ACLU Misconduct Claims By Children Are Widespread At Border

first_imgThe American Civil Liberties Union on Wednesday released documents detailing widespread allegations of misconduct by U.S. border authorities toward children, including kicking one in the ribs, denying medical attention to a pregnant teen who complained of pain and threatening others with sexual abuse.Its report is based on more than 30,000 pages of government documents in response to Freedom of Information Act requests and a subsequent lawsuit. The allegations date from 2009 to 2014 and, according to its authors, number in the hundreds.Customs and Border Protection strongly denied the claims, as it has rejected similar accusations of widespread excessive use of force in recent years. The documents compiled by the Homeland Security Department’s Office of Civil Litigation and Civil Rights for the ACLU are partially redacted, making it more difficult to assess the allegations and findings.Homeland Security’s internal watchdog agency has reviewed the claims and found them unsubstantiated, said Customs and Border Protection spokesman Dan Hetlage. In 2014, the department’s inspector general investigated 16 cases of alleged child neglect and abuse — out of 116 that advocacy groups had compiled — and reported that federal prosecutors declined to file charges because there was no evidence of crimes.“The false accusations made by the ACLU against the previous administration are unfounded and baseless,” said Hetlage.Mitra Ebadolahi, an attorney for the ACLU’s border litigation project, said the quantity of the allegations as well as their consistency — spanning several years and several states and coming from children with differing backgrounds — indicates some level of truth.“These records document a pattern of intimidation, harassment, physical abuse, refusal of medical services, and improper deportation between 2009 and 2014. These records also reveal the absence of meaningful internal or external agency oversight and accountability,” says the report, which was co-authored by the University of Chicago Law School’s International Human Rights Clinic.The ACLU began publishing the government documents online Wednesday and plans to post material, including audio recordings. Among the cases described in the initial release of documents:—A 15-year-old girl traveling alone said a Border Patrol agent in Campo, California, threatened to rape and her put her in foster care while deporting the rest of her family if she didn’t volunteer to return to Mexico. A Customs and Border Protection investigation found no wrongdoing;—A 13-year-old boy who was held at a Border Patrol station in Weslaco, Texas, said he was assigned to a “freezing cold room” with nothing more than boxer shorts for 24 hours;—A 16-year-old girl says she and her 2-year-old brother were detained for four days by the Border Patrol in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley, sleeping on the floor without blankets and were not allowed to shower or brush their teeth.Below is the full report, “Neglect and Abuse of Unaccompanied Immigrant Children by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.” Sharelast_img read more

In The Mixx Fridays

first_imgGdale@afro.com@GregoryODale On any given Friday night, the U Street corridor is bustling with a rather unique blend of hipsters, young professionals and students from nearby universities.At Indulj Restaurant and Lounge, a small eatery nestled just steps away from the U Street Metro station, you can also catch Marlee in the Mixx, a local progressive band bringing down the house. The nine-piece collective has been performing their signature “In the Mixx Fridays” series since last year and has performed at a myriad of shows across the country and around the world since forming in 2011.Perched in Indulj’s front window, Marlee in the Mixx regularly performs fan favorites including their renditions of Kendrick Lamar’s “Don’t Kill My Vibe,” Beyonce’s “XO,” and J. Cole’s “Power Trip.” This has proved to be a hallmark year for the group. In addition to releasing their highly-anticipated EP 10,000 Hours in May, the band made an appearance at this year’s BET Awards and was featured on TV One’s “Black Music Lives” commercial series.Collectively, the group ranges in age from 20 to 23. They may be young, but many of its members have been performing in Go-go bands for years. Their sound, a unique blend of neo-soul, rock, hip hop, and jazz, has garnered an impressive following. The band’s first single, “Cloud 9” received over 20,000 views on YouTube since its release in 2013. “Our sound is fresh, fun and universal more than everything,” said Foots, the band’s drummer. “Even something simple as a cover sounds like the original, but we end up taking it somewhere crazy. We’re learning how to play on our sound more than anything.”With a list of burgeoning acts from the DMV coming into the national scope, Marlee in the Mixx says their aim is to provide the world with something unique. “It’s a lot of talent out there, but [I do think some of it] is misrepresenting us as a whole,” Marlee, the band’s lead singer said. “But there are more people up and coming to change that. We’re doing this ourselves. We’re just young people going all the way hard.”For more information on Marlee In The Mixx and ‘In The Mixx Fridays,’ visit: http://www.marleeinthemixx.com/last_img read more

Trump Considers Pardon for Ali Wants Athletes Advice

first_imgBy JILL COLVIN, Associated PressWASHINGTON (AP) — Reveling in his pardon powers, President Donald Trump said Friday he’s thinking “very seriously” about pardoning former heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali, whose conviction was already overturned by the Supreme Court in 1971.It’s one of “thousands” of cases the president’s team is reviewing, he told reporters as he left the White House en route to a world leaders’ summit in Canada. And Trump said he’s thinking about soliciting recommendations about other cases to consider from pro football players and other athletes who have protested racial injustice by kneeling during the national anthem — a tactic Trump has fiercely denounced.In this Nov. 2009 file photo, President Bush presents the Presidential Medal of Freedom to boxer Muhammad Ali in the East Room of the White House. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci)Trump said that, “instead of talk,” he’s “going to ask all of those people to recommend to me — because that’s what they’re protesting — people that they think were unfairly treated by the justice system.”“I’m going to ask them to recommend to me people that were unfairly treated, friends of theirs or people that they know about and I’m going to take a look at those applications,” he said.Trump has been on a clemency kick of late, using his near-limitless power to pardon a growing list that includes a former White House aide, a conservative commentator and a former sheriff convicted of violating a judge’s orders who campaigned with Trump in 2016.Earlier this week, he commuted the life sentence of a woman whose cause was championed by reality television star Kim Kardashian West. Last month he granted a posthumous pardon to boxing’s first Black heavyweight champion, Jack Johnson. Actor Sylvester Stallone alerted him to that case.Trump told reporters Friday his team is now “looking at literally thousands” of people who have come to their attention because they’ve been treated unfairly or their sentences are too long.“We have 3,000 names. We’re looking at them,” Trump said, calling the power to pardon “a beautiful thing.”Among them is Ali, who died in 2016.Born Cassius Clay, Ali changed his name after converting to Islam in the 1960s. He refused to serve in the Vietnam War because of his religious beliefs, declaring himself a conscientious objector. He was stripped of his heavyweight crown in 1967, but his legal fight ended in 1971 when the Supreme Court ruled in his favor and overturned his conviction. He regained the boxing title in 1974.“I’m thinking about somebody that you all know very well. And he went through a lot. And he wasn’t very popular then,” Trump said. “He certainly, his memory is very popular now.”Ron Tweel, Ali’s lawyer, pointed out that Ali has no criminal record.“We appreciate President Trump’s sentiment, but a pardon is unnecessary,” he said.The White House did not immediately respond to questions about why the president feels one is needed.Trump said last week also said he’s considering commuting the sentence of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, who is serving 14 years in prison for corruption, and pardoning celebrity lifestyle guru Martha Stewart, who served about five months on charges connected to an insider trading case. O.J. Simpson, he said in response to a reporter’s question, is not on his list.The president has been operating outside the usual Justice Department clemency protocol, in which submitted cases are carefully considered based on their merits, and recommendations made. Instead, White House officials say, Trump has focused on individual cases that have caught his attention or been brought to him by friends or celebrities. He’s been especially drawn to cases in which he feels a person’s prosecution has been politically motivated — a situation that may remind him of his own predicament at the center of the special counsel investigation into Russian election meddling.Trump insisted Friday that he was also interested in clemency for regular people and those without high-profile backers.He said that, “it’s easier and people find it fascinating” to see him pardon the famous, but that he “would get more thrill out of pardoning people that nobody knows.”Yet Trump’s suggestion that professional athletes help him identify cases only seemed to fuel concerns that those without star advocates will be ignored.“Well, you know, if you think about it, that’s really — that becomes celebrity advocates. But they know a lot of things that we’re not going to know. They’ve seen a lot of abuse and they’ve seen a lot of unfairness,” he said.The idea also sparked backlash from the American Civil Liberties Union.“President Trump has spent much of his first 18 months in office degrading NFL players who protest police brutality and racial injustice. Today, he has tried once again to change the narrative about the work of those and other activists, betraying a fundamental misunderstanding of the cause behind these protests — and using racist dog whistles to do it,” said Jeff Robinson, the group’s deputy legal director.The players have been protesting racial injustice and the high numbers of African Americans killed by police.__Follow Colvin on Twitter at https://twitter.com/colvinjlast_img read more

Jay Cutler dressed up like a franchise quarterback for Halloween and beat

first_img His 11-yard TD toss to Alshon Jeffrey in the 3rd quarter, gave the Bears an insurmountable, 20-3 lead. Most of all, Cutler was engaged, instead of a black cloud of imminent death patrolling the sidelines.Jay Cutler pass doinks off Alshon Jeffery’s helmet. pic.twitter.com/3nzTnHvume— ⓂarcusD2.0 (@_MarcusD2_) November 1, 2016 Jay Cutler dressed up like a franchise quarterback for Halloween, and handed the Vikings their second loss of the season, 20-10, and their second loss in a row after an undefeated start. Maybe Cutler only gets up for games when he has the chance to give his employer a gigantic middle finger, but last night he played well.Reports from Chicago earlier in the week indicated that head coach John Fox was “done” with Cutler as the starting quarterback for the Bears. Apparently, those reports were premature.Fox may have reconsidered his position when back up Brian Hoyer, who had been playing out of his mind, went down with a broken forearm. The only remaining QB on the roster was former-Trojan almost-great, Matt Barkley. Not good enough to win games. If he’s the only other option, rolling out Cutler was a no-brainer.Cutler didn’t disappoint in his return. He lit up the Vikings like a Camel filter at last call. He was 20/32, and threw for 252 yards and a touchdown in what was easily Chicago’s best game of the year against the now two-loss Vikings. Advertisementcenter_img The beauty of the situation in Chicago is that it doesn’t matter whether you like Jay Cutler or not. He’s playin’, screw you. Time to dust off the old rifle for one last shootout.The Bears are done with Jay Cutler, just not quite yet. They got the W last night.

You’re sitting there, gaming or doing your work, when suddenly a blue screen overtakes your screen as Windows 10 decides to automatically update. Fortunately, Microsoft is looking to make its notoriously disruptive update process a thing of the past.In a post on the Windows Blog, Windows corporate vice president Mike Fortin announced that the Windows 10 May 2019 Update will give users much greater control over when and how Windows updates happen. For starters, there will be a new “download and install now” option specifically for manually downloading feature updates, which are separate from the monthly “quality and security” updates that Windows typically rolls out. MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro: Which 13-inch MacBook Is Right For You?Apple’s entry-level MacBook Air and Pro look pretty similar, but our testing proved they differ in crucial ways.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Which Cheap Tablet Is Best?

The May update will also roll out “intelligent active hours,” which will give users an option to let Windows Update decide on the optimal time for an automatic update based on their typical PC usage habits. Finally, Microsoft also promises to “improve system responsiveness” by better coordinating both Windows and Microsoft Store updates for when you’re away from your PC.Fortin’s blog post also vows to deliver an “expanded focus on quality” in the wake of the numerous issues caused by the Windows 10 October 2018 update. Fortin says that the May update will spend more time in the Preview Ring before rolling out widely, giving Microsoft more time to squash any nasty bugs. Microsoft also promises to work with its partners, including top PC makers, to begin manufacturing their devices with the latest build so that they can test it out before releasing their machines. Microsoft says that it will be using machine learning to identify the most urgent issues that people register in its online Feedback Hub so that it can more quickly resolve them. The company also plans to launch a new public dashboard where all users can see the latest Windows 10 rollout information as well as which issues are being actively worked on.The Windows 10 May 2019 Update will begin rolling out next week for those in the Release Preview ring, and in late May for users “on a currently supported version of Windows 10.” If Microsoft can successfully make Windows updates less disruptive while also avoiding the problems of last fall’s update, this could be one of the best versions of Windows yet. Credit: MicrosoftHow to Use Windows 10last_img read more

This is certainly true during their travels, but it happens during the planning process as well. Consumers will collaborate with their travel advisor – just as they would with their financial advisor – to ensure they get the experience they want. Where the trust comes in is when things don’t go as planned, and they can turn to their travel advisor for advocacy and accountability.”The definition of luxury travel is shifting as non-luxury brands begin to offer a level of quality comparable with luxury brands, leaving luxury travellers to seek out other criteria to evaluate their travel products, including customisation and shared values.Internationally there has been remarkable expansion in luxury travel with Virtuoso’s network recording 12% growth in the past year, now totalling sales of over US$23b, up from US$12.5b in 2013.In Australia, Virtuoso has become the fastest growing retail consortia in the country, with current sales up 19%  on the previous 12 months. Recognising this growth, Virtuoso will host its global Symposium in Melbourne next May, gathering together 500 luxury travel leaders from across the world.Image: Virtuoso Chairman and CEO Matthew D Upchurch at Virtuoso Travel Week 2018Go back to the enewsletterlast_img read more
