Ma Murray School hopes to hold opening ceremony by early September

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. –  The Peace River North School Board discussed a plan for the opening ceremonies of the new Margaret ‘Ma’ Murray School at a meeting on Monday.The Board pitched the idea of holding the opening ceremony on August 27th, but that could be pushed back until September if Board Trustees were not able to attend. The School Board will also take suggestions from the City of Fort St. John, the Ministry of Education, and BC Hydro on when they think the ceremony should take place, as all three organizations made sizable contributions to the new school.Peace River North MLA Dan Davies and Peace River South MLA Mike Bernier have agreed to tour the school on June 12th, after which they will take part in a meeting with School Board members. The Board also briefly discussed community facilities such as a daycare that would be incorporated in another new Elementary school that is proposed for the City’s Northeast side. Board Chair Erin Davies said that the Ministry of Education has been pushing to have a daycare included in the new school, but has not volunteered to fund it, which has raised questions from the Board. Funding for the daycare will be brought up during the June 12th meeting with the two MLA’s.last_img read more

UN force destroys hundreds of pieces of unexploded ordnance in southern Lebanon

“The cessation of hostilities generally was maintained in the past 24 hours. There were however, two air violations by Israeli jets recorded yesterday. There was also a clash reported between Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) and Hizbollah members east of Shamaha. Details are still to be established,” the UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) said. “A team from the Mine Action Coordination Centre carried out a controlled demolition of 445 pieces of unexploded ordnance (UXO) in the areas of Yohmor, Smayieh, Ras Al Ain, Tibnin and Aita Al Jabal.” Unexploded ordnance litters many areas in the south and will take months to clear, the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said yesterday, warning that de-mining will take up to six months in the region of Nabatiye alone. UN agencies are already working with the Government on a public awareness campaign on the dangers posed by the ordnance. UNIFIL also said today it was continuing ground and air patrolling throughout its area of operation to assess the situation on the ground and to monitor the cessation of hostilities, and it is keeping up its distribution of clean water to villages in the south, handing out 45, 000 litres of drinking water in El Khiam, Kafer Kela and Ebel Es Saqi. read more

UN warns of negative effects of Venezuelas withdrawal from rights convention

In September last year, Venezuela announced its withdrawal from the Convention. Despite repeated calls from the UN to reconsider.“Regrettably, this withdrawal becomes effective today. We want to repeat our concern that this decision may have a very negative impact on human rights in the country and beyond,” the spokesperson for the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Rupert Colville, told reporters.The American Convention on Human Rights – also known as the Pact of San José – was adopted by many American countries in the Costa Rican capital of San José in 1969, and came into force in 1978.It defines the human rights which the ratifying States have agreed to respect and ensure, and it created two organs to promote the observance and protection of human rights and take responsibility for overseeing compliance with the Convention: the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) and the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, which are both OAS organs.“We would like to encourage the Venezuelan Government, and all other States in the Americas, to continue to cooperate with regional and international human rights mechanisms, and urge them not to take any measures that would weaken human rights protection – withdrawing from a regional system is one such measure,” Mr. Colville said.He added that regional human rights bodies, such as the Court and the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, play a crucial role in the promotion and protection of human rights in the region, and also reinforce international universal human rights standards and treaties.To date, excluding Venezuela, 24 nations in the Americas have ratified or adopted the Convention: Argentina, Barbados, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Chile, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Granada, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, Trinidad and Tobago, and Uruguay. read more

Man steals MMO source code blackmails original creators with clone

first_imgIn what seems like the actions of those obnoxious players we all come across when playing online games, 24-year-old Dutch national Anil Kheda allegedly stole the source code of text-based MMO Outwar, created a clone of the game, then used it to blackmail the original creators.Supposedly, Kheda and company hacked Outwar’s servers, obtaining an unspecified amount of the game’s source code, granted themselves in-game points, and restored previously banned accounts. The hack and subsequent modifications to the game caused Outwar to be shut down for two weeks over the course of a nine month period resulting in, as the indictment states, “over $100,000 in lost revenues, lost wages, lost hosting costs, long-term loss of business, as well as the loss of exclusive use of their proprietary source code, which it had invested approximately $1.5 million in creating.” A federal grand jury indicted Kheda with charges of extortion and hacking.After allegedly stealing the source code, the indictment states Kheda created a clone of the Outwar, dubbed Outcraft, which gained around 10,000 players — compared to Outwar’s over 75,000 — and earned Kheda around $10,000 in profits.The indictment also mentions emails sent between Outwar’s developer Rampid Interactive and Kheda, in which Kheda asks Rampid to either restore his banned account or pay him $1500, or else he’d hack the servers once again.If convicted, Kheda could face a maximum of five years in prison for the conspiracy charge and two years for the extortion charge.via Seacoastonlinelast_img read more

Updated Maine Media Collective Distances Itself From Owner After Assault Allegation

first_imgUpdated as of 5/1/17 at 11:43am ET.Maine Media Collective—publisher of Maine Magazine among a handful of other local titles—announced Monday that it’s canceling the annual Kennebunkport Festival and exploring a sale of the company following an allegation that its owner Kevin Thomas assaulted a former employee and then bullied her into resigning.“We are doing so because we don’t want recent news about Maine Media Collective to cast a shadow over the festival,” reads a note posted on the festival’s website.The announcement comes days after Jessie Lacey—who spent four years with the company as art director for Maine Home + Design from 2006 to 2010—detailed in a Medium post a 2010 encounter with Thomas, in which her then-boss allegedly touched her thigh, pushed her against a wall and “forcefully kissed her” without permission.Lacey says she was driven to speak out about Thomas’s behavior after hearing similar accounts from other women.“I deserve to make this public and other women deserve to know who this man, Kevin Thomas, truly is,” she wrote. In a statement given to the Portland Press Herald, Thomas acknowledged that he was wrong in attempting to kiss Lacey, but disputed her account of the incident.Kevin Thomas“The truth is, eight years ago, I asked Jessie’s permission to kiss her, twice. And twice, she said yes,” Thomas wrote. “Was it wrong? Of course. I was her employer, she was my employee. And we were friends.”In interviews published last week by local magazine The Bollard, Lacey and a handful of anonymous current and former employees elaborate on a “toxic atmosphere” fostered by executives at the Maine Media Collective, which Thomas co-founded in 2008 with Susan Grisanti, who stepped down as editor-in-chief of Maine Magazine late in 2016.An open letter from Maine Media Collective CEO Andrea King, who joined the company in 2016, invited readers to contact her directly “to join in this important discussion,” but stopped short of addressing the allegations directly.King is due to speak on a panel at the inaugural Maine Women’s Conference next week. Meanwhile, the official Facebook page for Moxie Maine, a new magazine launched by the Maine Media Collective earlier this year and devoted to sharing “the empowering stories of Maine women,” appears to have been taken offline.Several local businesses had already withdrawn support from the Kennebunkport Festival prior to its cancellation.Update: King released a follow-up statement Monday evening, confirming that the Maine Media Collective has “begun looking into options for transferring ownership from Kevin Thomas.”“The issues brought to light by our former colleague Jessie Lacey are serious and of great concern to us,” added King. “While the working conditions Ms. Lacey described in her blog post relate to the alleged actions of former management eight years ago, we want to apologize and assure you in the strongest possible way that such conditions are neither present nor tolerated at MMC today.”last_img read more

The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe diesel is dead before arrival

first_img 71 Photos 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe has a funky face and diesel power 2019 Chevy Colorado ZR2 Bison: An off-road animal Chevrolet CorvetteMoving up from the 10th-place slot last year is the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette. While we’ve all been ogling the new mid-engine Corvette, it’s easy to forget what a performance bargain the current-generation ‘Vette is. From the base trim to the Grand Sport to the bonkers ZR1, the Corvette is an American icon.My preference is for the Grand Sport, which strikes a perfect balance between everyday drivability and canyon-carving performance. The 6.2-liter V8 puts out 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. You can get it with a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, but the kicker is the borrowed chassis and aero parts from the beefier Z06. Like I said, perfect balance. The Corvette is made in Bowling Green, Kentucky. 81 Photos 2019 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison: A tougher off-roader Honda PassportThe Honda Passport is a new (well, reborn) entry to both the Honda lineup and the American Made Index. This midsize crossover comes to the fray with great driving dynamics and plenty of tech like the standard Honda Sensing suite of active safety features. An available 8-inch touchscreen gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot.Under the hood is the stalwart 3.5-liter V6 producing 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. However unlike the Ridgeline, the Passport sends that power through a nine-speed automatic transmission. Having said that, just like the Ridgeline, this is the only powertrain available. The Honda Passport is built in Lincoln, Alabama. 2019 GMC Canyon: A fancier Colorado 4 Hyundai,Enlarge ImageIt’s all in a day’s work for the Jeep Cherokee, the most American-made car in 2019. Jeep With high trade tensions looming and increasing talk of tariffs, more and more consumers are looking to buy American. has released its annual American Made Index, showcasing companies that use the most American-sourced parts and labor in their vehicles. The results may surprise analyzed more than 100 US-built vehicles for five key data points: manufacturing location, parts sourcing, US employment, engine sourcing and transmission sourcing. You might think something like the Ford F-150 would top the list, but it drops from its No. 5 spot for 2018 and out of the top 10 completely. Even the first-place holder, the Jeep Cherokee, is a pretty global product. It’s a Jeep, sure, but that brand is part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, an Italian-owned surveyed 1,000 people and found that half are concerned about automotive import tariffs, with 41% saying they are unsure if tariffs would make them more likely to buy American. Either way, we’re big fans of all the vehicles on this list. These days, buying American doesn’t necessarily mean sticking with a US-based automaker. Honda RidgelineAgain keeping the status quo, the Honda Ridgeline maintains third place on the American Made Index. This crossover-that-looks-like-a-truck provides a better ride than a traditional pickup and gets an awesome lockable trunk right in the floor of the bed. And it doesn’t do the truck stuff too badly, either, as it’s able to carry 1,860 pounds of payload and tow 3,500 pounds.The Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 good for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. That is channeled through a six-speed automatic transmission with available all-wheel drive. It’s built in Lincoln, Alabama. 1 Tags More From Roadshow 10 Photos 2019 Jeep Cherokee can handle the rough stuff More From Roadshow 49 Photos 2019 Honda Odyssey offers plenty of room and features for families Acura MDXMoving up one slot to sixth place on the American Made Index is the non-hybrid variant of the Acura MDX. With its SH-AWD system, the MDX is one of the better handling midsize luxury crossovers, and for 2019 the company gives us the A-Spec treatment with a new front fascia and side skirts, 20-inch wheels, wider exhaust tips, unique gauges, a new steering wheel, carbon fiber trim and various Alcantara interior touches.However, both the standard and A-Spec models get a 3.5-liter V6 engine, rated for 290 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque going through a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Acura MDX is made in East Liberty, Ohio.  Honda PilotDropping down to seventh place for 2019 is the Honda Pilot. Like its two-row Passport sibling, the three-row Pilot offers parent-focused technology like Cabin Talk as well as myriad standard driver-assistance features through the Honda Sensing tech suite. Honda’s largest crossover offers up nearly 84 cubic feet of cargo space. Honda’s 3.5-liter V6 engine shows up again, making a serviceable 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Touring and Elite trims get a nine-speed automatic transmission while lower trims have to make do with a six-speed auto. The Honda Pilot is made in Lincoln, Alabama. 52 Photos Share your voice Enlarge ImageThere’ll be no Hyundai diesel beach picnics for us Americans, it seems. Cue the sad trombone. Hyundai When we found out that Hyundai was planning on bringing a diesel-powered version of its Santa Fe SUV to the US for 2019, we were pretty stoked. The thing is though, diesel is having kind of a weird time in the US thanks to the Germans and all their shenanigans, and as a result, Hyundai won’t be bringing its oil-burner stateside, according to a report published Monday by Green Car Reports.The 2019 Santa Fe diesel debuted in Geneva earlier this year, and it seemed incredibly promising. We liked the looks of it, and we love the torque and cruising range that a diesel drivetrain offers. But the stink left by Dieselgate on compression-ignition engines in passenger cars is just too much of a risk for the Korean automaker.The interesting thing is that while diesel cars and SUV’s are getting thinner on the ground than ever, more and more trucks are offering smaller diesel options. It wasn’t that long ago that if you wanted a diesel, you had to go with a three-quarter or 1-ton full-size pickup to get it. Now though, all of the big three are offering or planning to offer a small diesel in their half-ton pickups, with Chevrolet going as far as offering one in its midsize Colorado.So, if you need to have a diesel in your crossover or SUV, then you’ll have to go to the folks at Jeep, Land Rover, Jaguar or General Motors for the time being. 69 Photos Acura RDXThe third-generation Acura RDX squeaks into the top ten list with larger proportions, plenty of interior space and better handling than its predecessor. Forward collision warning with collision mitigation braking, adaptive cruise control that works even in low-speed traffic, lane-keeping steering assist and road departure mitigation are all standard across the board. Like its MDX counterpart, the RDX is available with the A-Spec styling package.The RDX sports a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine. Output is stated at 273 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, and it’s mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The new RDX is built in East Liberty, Ohio. 68 Photos Honda OdysseyThe feature-rich Honda Odyssey minivan also retains its number-two slot from last year’s list. While the 2019 model doesn’t see any changes from last, it’s still a darn good choice for families on the go with reconfigurable seats, Wi-Fi and an excellent rear-seat entertainment system. The Cabin Watch video system lets parents keep an eye on their little darlings without turning around in their seats, while Cabin Talk amplifies their voice so no yelling is required.The Odyssey is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 rated for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque.

Turnbull meets Suu Kyi to raise human rights concerns

Photo: ReutersMyanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi arrived in Canberra on Monday to be met by a military honour guard and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, who has said he will raise human rights issues during her visit.Suu Kyi has been in Australia since Friday, attending a special summit of Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) leaders in Sydney, where her presence drew street protests and a lawsuit accusing her of crimes against humanity.Australia’s Attorney General has said he would not allow the lawsuit, lodged by activist lawyers in Melbourne on behalf of Australia’s Rohingya community, to proceed because Suu Kyi had diplomatic immunity.Since coming to power in 2016, Suu Kyi, who won the 1991 Nobel Peace Prize for her struggle for democracy in Myanmar, has faced growing criticism for failing to condemn or stop military attacks on her country’s minority Rohingya Muslims.UN officials say nearly 700,000 Muslim Rohingya have fled Buddhist-majority Myanmar to Bangladesh after militant attacks on Aug. 25 last year sparked a crackdown, led by security forces, in Rakhine state that the United Nations and United States have said constitutes ethnic cleansing.The UN independent investigator on human rights in Myanmar, Yanghee Lee, said in Geneva this month she saw growing evidence to suspect genocide had been committed.Myanmar denies the charges and has asked for “clear evidence” of abuses by security forces.Neither Suu Kyi nor Turnbull made public remarks before their meeting, but the Australian leader said on Sunday that Suu Kyi spoke “at considerable length” during the ASEAN meeting about Rakhine State, appealing to her Southeast Asian neighbours for humanitarian help.last_img

Contractor corruption watchdog unable to carry out duties

first_imgThe government has failed to properly support a committee it had set up to review cases of contractors suspected of bribery or misconduct forcing its chairman to resign, MPs said on Wednesday.During a session of the House ethics committee, lawmakers said the chairman of the exclusion committee, Georgios Arestis, resigned because even though the state had established the committee to monitor the practices of contractors, it had failed to provide him with adequate support on a technical and staffing level.Arestis, who previously served as a judge at the supreme court, had said he was leaving the job for personal reasons.But Akel MP Aristos Damianou said the exclusion committee now in its second year of operating “does not even have a secretary, an office, nor the logistical and human resources so they can carry out their duties”.“This is the reason that led to its chairman to resign and we want to believe that after today’s session those in power will receive the message. That they can’t set up institutions, grant them powers, authorities that have to do with clamping and deterring corruption but have no support.”Greens MP Giorgos Perdikis called the state a useless entity which “not only doesn’t condemn illegality but rewards it.”In turn, Diko MP Zacharias Koulias said “the very government that appointed people to the exclusion committee, in essence rid them of any opportunity to do their work.”He added that Arestis had in the past sent a letter to the finance ministry’s permanent secretary, outlining problems but has yet to receive a response.Arestis had apparently met with the finance minister, saw no change, sent a letter but got no reply.Koulias questioned whether the government was really sincere in clamping down on corruption while Damianou appealed to the finance ministry to look into the matter immediately. You May LikeFood PreventEat Grapes Every Day For One Month And This Is What Might Happen To Your BodyFood PreventUndoCheezburgerHere’s Why Marie Kondo Is Swiftly Becoming America’s Favourite Organizational ExpertCheezburgerUndoArticles VallyAfter Her Weight Loss, Celine Dion Confirm What we Knew All AlongArticles VallyUndo Data is the new oil so watch out for mass mining – Netflix filmUndoWidowers threaten legal action over pensionsUndoCompanies must use buying power to root out slavery, says UK officialUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Sabha seat but annexed a parliamentary seat of Ballari from BJP Of five seats that went to by-elections BJP held two Lok Sabha seats but retained only Shivamogga with a smaller margin while losing Ballari by a huge gap In other words as far as these by-elections are concerned the equation of Congress-JD(S) and BJP changed from 3-2 to 4-1 This may not look so terrible on the face of it but behind this simple scorecard lies a bigger story of disaster for BJP The enormity of frustration within that party is evident from the laconic comments that came from senior state leader Suresh Kumar even before the results were fully out: Time for genuine introspection — Sureshkumar (@nimmasuresh) November 6 2018 Time for our cadre based Organisation-Party to re-invent itself to get ready for the Major Exam — Sureshkumar (@nimmasuresh) November 6 2018 Overconfident BJP humbled An overconfident BJP had almost hoped that the by-elections would mark the beginning of the end of the coalition government of Congress and Janata Dal (Secular) There were indeed questions over whether the coalition hastily put together after the May Assembly elections would be able to fight the coming Lok Sabha poll together The conduct of the leaders of the two parties after they formed the government only confirmed the doubts over whether the post-poll coalition formed after the Assembly election can be an effective pre-poll alliance for the Lok Sabha poll considering the differences within—and between—Congress and JD(S) Whether the coalition can put up a united fight in the Lok Sabha election is still an open question but the two parties have indeed passed the test of unity at least for now in these by-elections Will Yeddyurappa last File image of former chief minister BS Yeddyurappa PTI On the other hand the results have only thrown up some very vital questions over BJP’s own state of preparedness in Karnataka to face the 2019 election Clearly the party needs to do a lot to put its own house in order before picking faults with the coalition And quite apart from the longevity of the ruling alliance the question that is already being asked now is: how long will state BJP president BS Yeddyurappa last For the record Yeddyurappa may take comfort from the fact that the net loss for BJP is the lone Lok Sabha seat of Ballari But nobody doubts that the plight of the party is much worse than losing a single seat The BJP’s candidate in Ballari is J Shantha the sister of B Sreeramulu a close associate of the Reddy brothers of the notorious mining mafia Sreeramulu won the seat for the party in 2014 but caused the vacancy after he resigned following his election to the Assembly in May Congress candidate VS Ugrappa an outsider to the constituency who enjoys a clean reputation won the seat: Though with more than a little help from his party leader DK Shivakumar better known for his “organisational skills” and his status as one of Karnataka’s richest men The Ballari result must teach BJP a lesson that Congress repeatedly learnt in the past: money power is not always a foolproof guarantee for election victories A stronghold of Congress for long Ballari elected Sonia Gandhi to Lok Sabha in 1999 but has been a BJP turf since 2004 Congress has now wrested it back in circumstances that BJP leaders admit are a shame to their party Besides BJP also paid the price for not putting up as united a front in Ballari and the other places as Congress and JD(S) did Even in Shivamogga Yeddyurappa had the comfort of seeing his son BS Raghavendra win but not as easily as expected This vacancy too was caused by the resignation of Yeddyurappa from the Lok Sabha seat following his election to the Assembly in May The mess that BJP found itself in in the Ramanagara Assembly constituency was even worse The victory of Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy’s wife Anita from there was a foregone conclusion but it became doubly easy after the BJP candidate defected to Congress two days before polling This led to internal protests within BJP over the unilateral way Yeddyurappa chose the candidate in the first place and fell into a trap ignoring the advice of some party colleagues And this once again brings into the open Yeddyurappa’s overbearing style which party men have been complaining about for long Though powerful sections of the party want nothing less than a change in the state leadership it’s doubtful if party’s national president Amit Shah will disturb the status quo at least till the 2019 election considering Yeddyurappa’s clout within his upper-caste Lingayats Shah’s own lack of comfort with Yeddyurappa is not a secret within the party But the only thing that Shah may do as the 2019 polls near is that he may once again become the de facto state president himself something he did before the Assembly polls this year JD(S)-Cong euphoria exaggerated The sample offered by these elections is big enough for BJP to worry about the 2019 outcome but too small for Congress-JD(S) to gainexcessive confidence The leaders of the two parties indeed put up a show of unity and threw their collective weight behind coalition candidates but there was no matching enthusiasm from their respective workers on ground zero Dissatisfaction in Congress over leaving the Mandya and Ramanagara seats to JD(S) was all too clear And the relatively low turnout of voters in the Lok Sabha constituencies that went to by-elections was attributed to a lack of interest among Congress workers in mobilising voters And there is no guarantee that the unity of coalition leaders will last long beyond the current successes A cabinet expansion that is expected soon will be another test of this unity The victories of the coalition were helped as much by its strength as by the organisational flaws of BJP That’s what must alarm BJP known for its organisational finesse and micro-management of elections UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – The United Nations Security Council urged
