Premier defends BC Speaker says his impartiality not in question

first_imgVICTORIA — Premier John Horgan says he wishes the last week of events at British Columbia’s legislature had unfolded differently, but it hasn’t diminished his confidence in Speaker Darryl Plecas.Horgan says he believes Plecas will continue to perform his duties despite the disruptive events that resulted in two top officials in the legislature being placed on leave amid an RCMP investigation.The premier says he has confidence in the actions of Plecas over the past week and suggests patience as the police conduct their investigation with the help of two special prosecutors.The Opposition Liberals say Plecas appears to be empire-building after they revealed he attempted to have his special adviser Alan Mullen appointed acting sergeant-at-arms after Gary Lenz was placed on administrative leave along with clerk of the house Craig James.Lenz and James say they have yet to be told about the allegations they face and they have hired a lawyer who demands their reinstatement while the police investigation proceeds.Horgan made his comments at a news conference as the fall session of the legislature comes to a close today.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Video Floods in Morocco Kill up To 5 People

Rabat- The recent floods that swept Rhamna and Al Haouz, Sidi Ifni, Meknes, and Guelmim regions have caused five deaths, and others have gone missing.On Friday, September 28, the provinces of Rhamna and Al Haouz in the Marrakech-Safi region experienced heavy rainfall and thunderstorms, killing one man from Al Haouz, two women from Sidi Ifni, and a man and a child from Rhamna.The first victim, from Rhamna, was in a car that became submerged by the floods. Civil security forces have reported that a second occupant of the vehicle is still missing, according to Monday’s edition of Al Massae newspaper. An eight-year-old boy, also from Rhamna, drowned on his way home from school in Bouchane town in Rhamna region.  Read Also: Man Rides Mattress on Flooded Streets of GuelmimThe floods that hit Sidi Ifni, in the Guelmim-Oued Noun region on Sunday, killed two women. Al Massae reported that two other women from Sidi Ifni are still missing. Meknes and other nearby regions that witnessed floods did not record any human losses.The floods have also caused extensive property damage and agricultural casualties to the affected regions, from flooding houses to drowning livestock and blocking roads.Following the floods, which raged Friday to Sunday, the Directorate of Meteorology warned citizens not to approach riverbanks in the coming days, as more heavy rainfall is forecast in the regions.Videos and photos of the floods have been circulating social media, showing the raging muddy waters of overflowing local rivers sweeping the regions and filling bystanders with panic.According to a person at the scene, people in the Saharan city of Guelmim were in a state of panic, fearing they would have to relive the floods of 2014, which cut the city off from the rest of the country and claimed the lives of dozens of people.In August, a violent storm hit Ourika Valley, 90 kilometers from Marrakech, causing floods and damage to many merchants and restaurateurs.Ourika Valley often experiences floods in the summer. In 1995, flash floods in the valley caused the deaths of at least 100 Moroccans and foreigners. read more

Uber tells passengers to stop dooring bicyclists

first_img 5 Tags Comments Share your voice Enlarge ImageUber is piloting a feature that will tell passengers if they’re being dropped off near a bike lane. Uber Uber aims to school passengers on how to avoid “dooring” bicyclists.Getting “doored” has long been a fear-inducing issue for cyclists. It’s when a passenger or driver opens a car door in the path of a bike rider, causing the cyclist to crash. What can result is anything from bruises to broken bones and head injuries.Dooring accidents might be on the rise now that ride-hailing services like Uber and Lyft are increasingly picking up and dropping off passengers on busy city streets. Uber announced a pilot program on Wednesday aimed at increasing safety around drivers, passengers and cyclists. In select cities, it’s now including an in-app feature that tells passengers via push notification if they’re being dropped off on a street with a bike lane and to look out for cyclists. The company is also reminding drivers it’s illegal to stop in a bike lane in most cities.Lyft rolled out a similar program around preventing dooring last month.Uber and Lyft are also encouraging riders to get in the habit of doing the “Dutch Reach.” This is a technique where passengers and drivers look over their shoulder before exiting a vehicle to make sure no one is there. “As the experts say, increasing awareness of safe behavior increases safety,” Kristin Smith, Uber’s road safety product marketing manager, wrote in a blog post. “As a daily bike commuter and bike safety advocate, I know firsthand the challenges of urban bike commuting.”A quick Google search brings up dozens of legal forums with people asking questions about what to do after being doored by Uber passengers. A lawsuit was filed in Boston against an Uber driver and passenger that accidentally doored a cyclist in 2015, according to ABC. The passenger said he didn’t know he was being dropped off on a street with a bike lane. Uber reportedly said it’s insurance won’t cover the lawsuit in the case of the passenger.An Uber spokeswoman said the company’s new safety initiatives around dooring aren’t because of any lawsuits.Uber’s pilot officially starts in San Francisco, Washington, DC, New York City and Toronto as of Wednesday.

Man Yells Heil Hitler Heil Trump During BSO Performance

first_imgBy Sean Yoes, AFRO Baltimore Editor, syoes@afro.comDuring a performance of “Fiddler on the Roof” by the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra on Nov. 14, an anti-Semitic outburst reminded many in attendance of an atmosphere of intolerance, which seems pervasive in America.According to the Associated Press, a man in the balcony of the Hippodrome Theatre in downtown Baltimore allegedly yelled out, “Heil Hitler! Heil Trump!” during the intermission of the venerable play. “Fiddler on the Roof,” is a play set in a Jewish village in czarist Russia and many members of Baltimore’s Jewish community were in attendance when the man yelled the anti-Semitic phrase. According to some in attendance he also yelled “MAGA,” which stands for Make America Great Again, the campaign slogan of Donald Trump. After the outburst, the man left the theatre. Police were called to the Hippodrome after the incident, but no arrests were made and no report was filed.(Screengrab from Twitter video of the incident)Almost three weeks ago on Oct. 27, Robert Bowers gunned 11 Jewish members of the Tree of Life synagogue, in the Jewish community of Squirrel Hill in Pittsburgh, Pa. It is the deadliest attack on Jews in American history. Bowers, 46, a virulent anti-Semite on social media prior to the attack, has been charged 29 federal crimes and 36 state crimes.last_img read more

Physicists continue to investigate why the universe did not collapse

first_img This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. © 2015 Phys.org The problem lies in part with Higgs bosons, which were produced during inflation and which explain why other particles have the masses that they do. Previous research has shown that, in the early universe, the Higgs field may have acquired large enough fluctuations to overcome an energy barrier that caused the universe to transition from its standard vacuum state to a negative energy vacuum state, which would have caused the universe to quickly collapse in on itself.In a new paper published in Physical Review Letters, Matti Herranen at the University of Copenhagen and coauthors may have come a step closer to solving the problem by constraining the strength of the coupling between the Higgs field and gravity, which is the last unknown parameter of the standard model.As the physicists explain, the stronger the Higgs field is coupled to gravity, the larger are the fluctuations that may eventually trigger a fatal transition to the negative energy vacuum state.In the new paper, the scientists calculated that a collapse after inflation would have happened only if the coupling strength had been above a value of 1. Combining this result with the lower bound of 0.1, which the same physicists derived last year by analyzing the requirements for stability during (rather than after) inflation, and the range of 0.1-1 constrains the coupling to near its historically estimated value of 1/6. This value of 1/6 is traditionally used as an estimate because it corresponds to zero Higgs-gravity coupling, though it is likely incorrect.Narrowing down the Higgs-gravity coupling strength will guide physicists when analyzing experimental data to help pinpoint the coupling value with greater precision. Data on the cosmic microwave background radiation and gravitational waves, for example, are expected to help further constrain the value. When combined with other parameters, the Higgs-gravity coupling strength should produce a picture of a universe that did not transition to a state of collapse. “It’s a combination of parameters that actually determines the occurrence of such a transition, including the Higgs coupling to gravity, but also the energy scale of the inflation, which are not tightly constrained by current measurements,” Herranen told Phys.org. “So, presently it is not possible to draw a conclusion on whether the standard model is in trouble due to instability-related issues, but it would be very interesting if the Higgs-gravity coupling and the scale of inflation could be constrained more tightly in the future by independent measurements, for example by observing primordial gravity waves resulting from inflation.”Taken together, the results should help scientists modify inflation models in order to describe a universe more like the one we live in. Journal information: Physical Review Letters (Phys.org)—According to the best current physics models, the universe should have collapsed shortly after inflation—the period that lasted for a fraction of a second immediately after the Big Bang. This is the “South Pillar” region of the star-forming region called the Carina Nebula. Like cracking open a watermelon and finding its seeds, the infrared telescope “busted open” this murky cloud to reveal star embryos tucked inside finger-like pillars of thick dust.

International Sargasso summit held in Cancun

first_img“The economy of these countries depends on tourism, the Caribbean states live on tourism and this situation generates a complicated economic and environmental situation, hence the exchange of experiences,” he added. “The objective is to analyze the sargasso situation that has affected these countries over the last seasons and exchange experiences, to understand the origin of the sargasso, its route, the situation in each Caribbean country and possible solutions to avoid economic and environmental problems,” explained state governor Carlos Joaquín González. June Soomer, secretary general of the Association of Caribbean States said that sargasso affects the east coast of many countries such as Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago and Mexico, as well as Martinique and Guadalupe. Donald R. Jonhson and James S. Franks, scientists from the University of Southern Mississippi, explained that so far they have not been able to determine what is causing the sea of sargasso to form, but explained that their records date back to 2010, and after nearly a decade of research “we have not learned anything,” the scientists said. Cancun, Q.R. — An international summit on the topic of sargasso was held in Cancun with representative from 12 countries who are also facing the problem of seaweed covered beaches. The High Level Summit for Sargasso Care in the Caribbean began Thursday with representatives from other countries who have continued to deal with the arrival of sargasso along their coasts. Specialists attending the summit included the countries of Honduras, Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Haiti, Cuba, Panama, Guadalupe Island (French territory), Guyana and Guatemala.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window) Benito Juárez municipal president Mara Lezama Espinosa said “Facing this phenomenon requires collective efforts. International cooperation is fundamental because it is a theme that is present in the region that we all share. Combing sargassum is an everyday task.center_img “The beaches are cleaned in the mornings, sometimes in the afternoons and the workers come back because they have to be cleaned again. We must establish a regional collaboration agenda for technical support and mechanisms that benefit us to deal with the phenomenon,” she said. To date, the state of Quintana Roo has implemented manual beach cleaning, the use of light machinery and the placement of marine barriers in front of beaches in various municipalities, which has resulted in the removal of more than 522,000 tons of sargasso from coastal areas of seven municipalities for cost of around 332 million peso, he said. She explained that being a new challenge, it lacks a legal framework for regional collaboration and, in fact, does not even have a diagnosis of the damage it generates in fisheries, the environment and tourism, which she hopes will be resolved during the summit. “What I’m saying is that it seems something drastic happened in 2010. There is nothing in particular that has caused it. There is nothing we can say. I don’t know the answer as to why now, but I suspect that it arrived in the area (of Brazil) for the nutrients,” Donald R. Johnson explained during his presentation.last_img read more

Doubts raised over reducing lending rates

first_imgTHE ASSOCIATION of Cyprus banks (ACB) expressed strong reservations on Monday about a proposed bill to reduce lending rates by providing disincentives for financial institutions that offer high deposit rates.The bill was put forward by parties DISY, DIKO and EVROKO and was discussed at the House finance committee.The Central Bank representative told deputies that it has prepared a new directive on the management of overdue loans, which includes suggestions for reducing interest rates.Any financial institutions which offer deposit rates beyond 2.5 per cent will have penalties imposed, such as an additional fee of 0.6 per cent on deposits.Currently the rate of the marginal lending facility is 1.5 per cent with deposits receiving three per cent interest being subject to a higher tax rate.ACB director-general Michalis Kammas told deputies that it is not appropriate to increase tax on banks at the same time as they are struggling to increase their capital.He added that with this new proposal no deposits would remain on the island and that during the recapitalisation of banks there can be no recovery or reduction in the value of money.According to the director-general, the proposal sends the message that the system is not stable and that it is Cypriots who are withdrawing €300 every day from the banks and sending €5,000 abroad every month.Head of DISY Averof Neophytou said that whether parliament passes any bills or not, deposits will leave the island.Kammas retorted that banks have already gone ahead with reducing lending rates and legal interventions are not helping the situation.According to the Central Bank representative, the bank has recently completed a new directive on the management of non-performing loans and among the suggestions proposed by the bank is the restructuring of loans by lowering lending rates.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementCardiologist: This Is What Happens To Your Body When You Eat GlutenGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)UndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

(Reuters) – Every Saturday for 23 years dozens of people have held a vigil in a central Istanbul square sitting in silence and holding pictures of relatives who went missing in police detention The group was about to stage their 700th demonstration last Saturday when Turkish police told them their protest was banned before firing tear gas and plastic pellets to disperse the crowd and detaining dozens – including a 82 year-old woman who was among the first to protest in 1995 in search of her son The sit-in by the so-called Saturday Mothers was one of the few remaining public protests near Istanbul’s Taksim square once a vibrant demonstration ground but now off-limits for opposition groups Critics say that breaking up the vigil was another sign that NATO member Turkey is drifting into more authoritarian rule under President Tayyip Erdogan adding to Ankara’s already deteriorating record on human rights and media freedoms Casting the protest as a cover for supporting terrorism Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu said the Saturday Mothers were linked to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) and hinted the vigils would no longer be allowed "This has been one of Turkey’s oldest civil disobedience movements" said Ahmet Sik former journalist and a lawmaker for the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) who was at Saturday’s protest "There was a time when the police helped these people to do their vigil To criminalise such an established protest now is an attempt to intimidate the rest of the public" he said Turkey in July lifted a two year-long state of emergency during which 150000 civil servants were purged and 77000 people suspected of links to a failed coup in 2016 were charged But opponents say Erdogan’s new executive presidency and a counter-terrorism law passed last month equips him with sweeping powers to stifle opposition Soylu said on Monday that authorities blocked the sit-in because participants were "trying to create victims through motherhood and mask terrorism through that victimisation" At a news conference in Istanbul the group denied links to any militant group and pointed out Erdogan when he was prime minister in 2011 met them and pledged support They also vowed to continue their protest "Nobody is using us Nobody has made us come here" said Hanife Yildiz whose son Murat went missing in police detention in 1995 "I handed over my son to the state and I haven’t gotten him back since" ‘REPEAT OF THE 1990s’ The silent vigils of Saturday Mothers began as a protest against what they say was the disappearance of relatives in police detention and extrajudicial killings in the 1990s At the time when conflict with the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) was at its height such disappearances and killings were common mostly in Turkey’s mainly Kurdish southeast Emine Ocak who was briefly detained on Saturday was among those at the first sit-in after her son Hasan Ocak went missing following clashes with police in Istanbul in 1995 Soylu rejected that Ocak had gone missing in detention and said he was a member of an ultra leftist terrorist organisation and that he was killed after a row within the group but the Saturday Mothers were trying to put the blame on the state Emine Ocak’s picture – the image of a white-haired elderly woman shouting as she was taken by riot police – went viral across Twitter Her son Huseyin Hasan’s brother told Reuters police intervention was unexpected "There seems to be a new security approach in the state that very much resembles the one in the 1990s" Huseyin Ocak said "I was there at the meeting with Erdogan on Feb 5 2011 He said ‘your problem is my cabinet’s problem" He also promised to find our relatives he added State investigations have shed light on some of the cases pursued by the Saturday Mothers A 2011 parliament report found that Cemil Kirbayir who went missing during a 1980 coup died under torture "Since 1995 we have continued our rightful and silent resistance" Cemil’s brother Mikail said "You will not be able to remove us from that square" (Editing by Dominic Evans and Alexandra Hudson) This story has not been edited by
