first_imgSo many people showed up that some had to listen from the hallway so as not to run afoul of fire codes.Ford made no secret of who he will root for in Alberta’s provincial election next spring.“Let’s elect a new United Conservative government in Alberta,” he said. “A new day has dawned in Ontario and a new day will dawn in Alberta.”Kenney has said the repeal of Alberta’s $30-a-tonne carbon tax will top his agenda if his party wins the election.“There is no compassion in telling seniors on modest fixed incomes that they can’t have an active life just so you can feel virtuous by imposing this carbon tax on Albertans,” he said.“It isn’t progressive and it’s not compassionate.” Kenney said the “multibillion-dollar job killing carbon tax” was not in the NDP’s 2015 election platform.“It is not just the biggest tax hike in Alberta history. It is the biggest lie in Alberta history,” he said.“Why are we engaged in this act of economic masochism when it will not make one whit of difference for the environment?” Heavy equipment operator Steve Spackman came to Calgary from Okotoks, just south of the city, for the rally because he’s fed up.“We’d probably hire more people at work I bet you, if they didn’t have that carbon tax every month coming in for gas,” he said.Alberta’s NDP government introduced the provincial levy before Ottawa required it. With the Trans Mountain oil pipeline expansion in limbo, Premier Rachel Notley is now refusing to raise it in line with federal requirements.Ottawa passed legislation last spring to give it authority to impose a carbon price on any province without its own beginning Jan. 1, 2019. It is starting at a minimum of $20 per tonne, rising $10 per year until 2022.Ontario’s new Progressive Conservative government scrapped that province’s cap-and-trade system in July and launched a challenge of the federal carbon plan.Provincial resistance to Ottawa’s carbon policy has been ramping up.Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe and Ford met in Saskatoon on Thursday, where the two conservative leaders said they will continue to fight the tax together. To that end, Moe announced Saskatchewan will file for intervener status in Ontario’s court challenge.Ontario had already pledged to support Saskatchewan’s court challenge when the premiers met in New Brunswick in July. Moe’s government has asked Saskatchewan’s Court of Appeal to rule on whether the federal plan is constitutional.Ford and Moe gained another ally Wednesday when Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister announced his province will not go ahead with a $25-a-tonne levy that was to come into effect in December.“We’ll all be at the premier’s table defending common sense and Canadian taxpayers to fight against Trudeau’s carbon tax,” Ford said Friday.Trudeau said earlier in the day that Canadians gave his government a mandate in the last election to implement a national carbon price and that is exactly what it is going to do.“Pollution should not be free anywhere across this country,” he said at an event in Windsor, Ont.Alberta Education Minister David Eggen said earlier Friday that Albertans should be disturbed by Ford and Kenney working together.“Certainly, we know how to solve our issues in Alberta and we don’t need someone from Ontario coming and telling us what to do,” he said.“Our climate action plan is very effective up to now in creating jobs, helping to diversify the economy and quite frankly is helping to reduce pollution as well.”(THE CANADIAN PRESS)center_img CALGARY, A.B. – A raucous crowd of more than 1,500 crammed into a Calgary convention centre Friday night to hear Ontario Premier Doug Ford and Jason Kenney, leader of Alberta’s Opposition United Conservative Party, rail against the federal carbon tax.“It’s really, my friends the worst tax ever, a tax we can’t afford, a job-killing tax that hikes up the price of services and goods and drives up the price of heating your homes,” Ford told the anti-carbon-tax rally.The crowd frequently rose to its feet waving signs that said “Renew The Alberta Advantage” and “Scrap The Carbon Tax.” Many jeered when Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s name was mentioned.last_img read more

Image: PA Archive/PA Images Image: PA Archive/PA Images 13,447 Views Short URL AN ENGLISH PRIEST who molested a 12-year-old boy after bringing the child and his brother on holiday to Ireland over 40 years ago has been jailed for nine months.Michael Dunn (67), who pleaded guilty to three counts of sexual assault, intends to appeal the sentence, Dublin Circuit Criminal Court heard on Friday.Dunn knew the boy and his family as the child served as an altar boy. The victim was bullied at school and Dunn became his “trusted confidant”, the court heard.The victim told the court that Dunn groomed him to comply and that said he felt helpless to escape.“I was imprisoned in what was supposed to be a holiday and 100 miles from home,” he said.Garda Karen Doherty told John Fitzgerald BL, prosecuting, that the victim told gardaí that while in Dublin, Dunn got him to share his bed every night.The abuse started with Dunn touching him while he pretended to be asleep and progressed to the man forcing him to masturbate him and open mouth kissing.The now 53-year-old victim said in his garda statement that he felt he loved Dunn as he was a father figure and friend. He was the only person who showed him physical affection and he later “felt bad for letting it happen”.Dunn, with an address in Lawrence Street, York, England, pleaded guilty to three charges of sexual assault in August 1975 when he was 26 years old.He was jailed for 18 months in England in March 2005 after he was convicted of sexual assaulting another young boy in the 1970s.Judge Melanie Greally said Dunn’s offending had deeply affected his victim in all aspects of his life. “The actions of the accused had a profoundly negative effect on a young male in the vital, formative years of his life,” she said.She noted Dunn entered the priesthood at a very young age, when he was “ill-prepared for the challenges of priesthood, both sexually and socially”.She took into account mitigating factors including his plea of guilty and the fact he had lived an “irreproachable” life ever since.Defence counsel Bernard Condon SC indicated Dunn would be appealing the sentence and asked that he be granted bail pending the outcome. Judge Greally denied the bail application.Moving victim statementThe man read his victim impact statement in court which was later described by counsel, “as a powerful, deeply moving, testimony”.He said he was at an early stage of his sexual and emotional development a the time. “I cannot say the abuse made me gay but it normalised in my psyche an attraction to men,” he continued.He said as a married man and father, he led a dual existence describing a “secret life of alcohol and infidelity with other men”.The man said his long-term suppression of the truth caused him “internal turmoil” and he carried the memories for 40 years.He said for much of that time, he kept the abuse a secret “to protect those that I love from suffering”.He said his “greatest sadness” was the pain this process had caused his wife and children, who he said suffered seeing him unable to cope with life. He described life with him as “intolerable”, two of his older children left home and his marriage had broken down.He said he had completed 60 hours of therapy and had finally started a process of coming to terms with what happened to him as a child. “I hope to live a normal, honest and fulfilled life from now,” he concluded in his statement.Mr Condon said his client apologised and regretted his behaviour. He said he recognised the impact the abuse had on the man and “is full of remorse, horror and shame”.He asked Judge Greally to take into account the fact that his client had not committed any further crimes in the last 40 years.Dunn entered the priesthood at 16, when Mr Condon said he was immature and had not identified his own sexuality. He said this did not justify his client’s behaviour towards the victim.Counsel said Dunn continued to live a life of prayer and reflection but did not “practice publicly”. He accepted he had abused a position of trust.last_img read more

first_imgCHICAGO—In a somewhat  evangelical  speech that was not entirely unlike Tom Cruise’s in Magnolia here, Jim Louderback—the former editor-in-chief of PC Magazine and current CEO of Revision3, an online video company backed by the dudes from Digg—lamented the slashing of editorial budgets in the magazine industry. Specifically, the disappearance of a position that is sounding more and more antiquated: the “fact checker.” “In the 90s, it seemed like we had hundreds,” he said. “Now, guess how many fact checkers we had when I left? That’s right, zero.”Louderback did allow that “magazines are not going away, but they’ve been changed forever.”Check out more coverage of the 2008 FOLIO: Show on FOLIOmag.comlast_img

first_imgDebt-ridden auto component manufacturer Amtek Group is reportedly planning to sell its loss-making coffee chain Barista Coffee, as part of the group’s strategy to offload its non-core businesses.To sell the Italian coffee chain it acquired last year, Amtek may rope in consultancy firm Grant Thornton to scout for “potential buyers”, sources close to the development told The Economic Times.However, so far, Grant Thornton hasn’t received any “signed mandate” from Amtek to start the process, said the source.”The deal could also be structured in a way that the Arvind Dham-promoted Amtek Auto could liquidate about a third in Carnation Hospitality, which manages Amtek’s food business.”Recently, Dham had said that the group would sell non-core assets and exit non-auto businesses, after the company defaulted on its Rs 800 crore bond repayment.Barista Coffee sale not only highlights the liquidity issues faced by Amtek, but also the difficulties in making profits in the country’s coffee chain industry. Barista changed hands three times before it was sold to Amtek.Barista was bought by Rollatainers, a subsidiary of Amtek Group, from Italian coffee firm Lavazza Spa in a deal worth Rs 100 crore.Barista is the second largest coffee chain in India after Cafe Coffee Day, which recently got listed on the stock exchange. Barista has over 170 stores across the country, with most of them incurring losses.Starbucks and Costa Coffee are the other major players in the domestic coffee chain industry, which is projected to be worth Rs 1,400-crore.last_img read more

Everyone’s looking out for themselves & it’s pretty normal considering we’re growing up & certain decisions come to play. I remember a time where I was surrounded by people who just lived to live. We all had nothing to lose. I miss that,” Sakshi wrote while sharing her naked picture on Instagram.Sakshi likes to live her life on her own terms but she often gets trolled for posting bold pictures on social media for being Ramanand Sagar’s great-granddaughter. She feels that people unnecessarily compare her with her great-grandfather for her choices of clothes. “If anyone doesn’t like my photos then don’t see it. I know people talk behind my back but I don’t care about them. I just want to say that you cannot judge people looking at the kind of clothes they are wearing,” Sakshi had earlier told Dainik Bhaskar in an interview adding that she cannot tolerate TV shows like Ramayana and won’t watch if anyone asks her to.Sakshi Chopra is the daughter of Meenakshi Sagar, Ramanand Sagar’s granddaughter.

first_imgA Bharti Airtel office building is pictured in Gurugram, previously known as Gurgaon, on the outskirts of New Delhi, India April 21, 2016.ReutersBharti Airtel shares rose to an intraday high of 10.80 percent to Rs 400 on Thursday, after the company — India’s largest telecom service provider by subscriber base — said it will be acquiring Telenor’s India operations in seven circles. The move comes days after Reliance Jio announced aggressive plans, leading to the share price of Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) rising 11 percent to a 9-year high on Wednesday. On Thursday, the RIL stock was trading marginally down at Rs 1,198 on the BSE at around 10.55 am even as ratings agency Fitch said it retained its negative outlook for the telecom sector. Read: Reliance Jio’s unlimited offer extended till March 2018In a statement, Bharti Airtel said that it had signed an agreement with Telenor South Asia Investments Pte Ltd. to acquire its India operations in seven telecom circles comprising Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh (East), Uttar Pradesh (West) and Assam. The acquisition price was not disclosed by Bharti Airtel. “The proposed acquisition will include transfer of all of Telenor India’s assets and customers, further augmenting Airtel’s overall customer base and network. It will also enable Airtel to further bolster its strong spectrum footprint in these seven circles, with the addition of 43.4 MHz spectrum in the 1800 MHz band,” Bharti Airtel said in its regulatory filing to the BSE.Fitch Ratings said the acquisition won’t change the forecast for the telecom sector in India. ” We retain our negative outlook on the sector for 2017, as fierce competition and rising capex will put pressure on most operators in the short term,” it said in its analysis.”The agreement by Bharti Airtel to buy Telenor’s Indian telecom operations is the latest sign that the entry of aggressive new operator Reliance Jio is spurring incumbents to consolidate to better meet the intense competition and weaker telcos to exit altogether,” it added. Shares of another telecom operator Idea Cellular were trading 5.65 percent higher at Rs 118 on the BSE.India’s second-largest service provider Vodafone and Idea Cellular are in talks for a possible merger, which in turn could hit Bharti Airtel’s dominance in the telecom space in the world’s fastest-growing economy.The BSE Sensex was up 76 points at 28,941; leading the rally were Bharti Airtel, TCS and Infosys.

first_imgThe story follows a paranoid time traveler, but rather than a third-person narrative, the comic is presented as Polaxis’ — the traveler’s — private journal. The project incorporates the fourth wall in a clever way, as Polaxis’ journal is a seemingly normal journal at first, but he hides all of his delusions, paranoia, and conspiracies in a secret augmented reality layer of the book.The augmented reality portion of the comic is easily activated with an iPhone or iPad and the accompanying (free) app. Simply point your device’s camera toward the pages, and the secret information is revealed.The cheapest funding tier is only $20, while the most expensive — $2,000 — will allow you to become the books corporate sponsor. For more details on the story — and even a sample augmented reality image — you can head on over to the Kickstarter page. If you aren’t sure about the extra layer of interactivity, you can download the beta version of Polaxis from iTunes, then test it out on an image displayed on the Kickstarter page. Though one would argue that the world of comics is doing better than ever thanks to big (and lesser) name movie adaptations, actual comics have taken a while to transition to a modern-day medium. Software and services like comiXology have made the medium’s transition to digital smooth and easily accessible, but the medium itself hasn’t changed. A new Kickstarter for an augmented reality comic book aims to changed the ink-and-paper book to something much more modern and interactive.Obviously, the medium of comic books doesn’t need to change — books are still words on paper, TV is still moving images on a living room screen, etc. — but adding something new to an established medium is always welcomed if it goes well and preserves the original integrity and intent. Modern Polaxis, a new augmented reality comic book, hopes to do just that.last_img read more

GUATEMALA CITY – When María Rodríguez first heard about the potential of using worms to eradicate poverty, she was convinced as to where her future lay.“It was love at first heard,” the young Guatemalan woman says. “I was fascinated by the idea that worms eat waste and add so many nutrients through the digestion process. But since they’re on the ground, we don’t see them, and we don’t appreciate them.”In 2007, having just graduated with a business degree in Guatemala City, Rodríguez founded ByoEarth, a company that uses vermicomposting to promote health and development in rural and urban Guatemala. Through vermicomposting – using worms to break down degradable food into a nutrient-rich fertilizer – ByoEarth has been able to produce and sell high-quality compost and educate rural communities, as well as residents of Central America’s largest garbage dump, about the benefits of worms.“It’s very important because with vermicomposting you transform degradable waste that otherwise goes to landfills and produces methane and attracts rodents. People who work in dumps are very affected by the contamination that degradable waste causes when it should be separated and transformed into compost or vermicompost, which is organic fertilizer,” Rodríguez says.While ByoEarth’s core purpose is to convert waste into a natural fertilizer, the company’s social mission focuses on enabling poor families to make a small income by creating and selling their own vermicompost.“We partnered with a nonprofit group and established a program to train women in vermicomposting, with the main objective of improving their livelihoods by first improving the waste management inside their houses. We’re also teaching them how as women living in impoverished areas with almost no education, those reasons are not excuses not to live in better circumstances. It’s very interesting how they can learn and appreciate that. They get empowered because they know that even in their condition they can be agents of change in their communities and make something good for the environment,” Rodríguez adds. ByoEarth hopes its “Seed Bombs” will allow more people to grow their own food and contribute to food security in rural Guatemala. Courtesy of María Rodríguez Facebook Comments A self-confessed “serial entrepreneur,” the 26-year-old has garnered international attention for her work with ByoEarth. She recently appeared in Forbes magazine in an article about women entrepreneurs and is regularly invited to speak at conferences around the world.“It’s not common for a girl to be working in a male-dominated agricultural industry in Guatemala, but that’s why it’s interesting,” she says.“I’m very cautious as to how I do business with the agricultural sector. Maybe the sales in the rural area haven’t grown a lot because I haven’t been able to talk directly to farmers and be respected the same, but I don’t think that as a woman you can’t do business here.”With a production plant that contains an estimated population of more than 90 million Californian red worms, ByoEarth plans to expand into Central America over the coming year and start exporting worms to Nicaragua, Costa Rica and El Salvador.Rodríguez describes them as “pretty” and “delicate,” in stark contrast to how the majority of people view the slimy creatures.“I think of them as pets and we talk about animal husbandry; the same way you take care of a dog you take care of the worms, as they’ve been domesticated. These worms won’t survive by themselves, they need you to take care of them, feed them, clean them and give them water. If you see a worm anywhere you’d rescue it and put it on soil because you know the work she’s doing.”Determined to bring the concept of “guerrilla gardening” to Guatemala, ByoEarth recently launched several products such as “Worm Tea” and “Seed Bombs,” aimed at improving the quality of people’s soil. Not to be mistaken for the human beverage, Worm Tea is a premium organic fertilizer that can be mixed with water and given to plants as a nutritious drink; Seed Bombs allow people to grab a capsule consisting of seeds, fertilizer and soil and grow their own food.
