NEB approves modified Burnaby Terminal plans for Trans Mountain project

first_imgCALGARY, A.B. – The National Energy Board says it has approved modified plans for the Burnaby Terminal of the Trans Mountain pipeline project, clearing a final regulatory hurdle for construction to start.The regulator says the approved variance application will significantly improve safety at the terminal, which is the end point for the controversial pipeline the federal government has agreed to buy as part of a $4.5-billion acquisition of Kinder Morgan Canada’s core assets.The new plans reduce the diameter of five of the 14 tanks and the overall capacity of the facilities by about 320,000 barrels, increase the space between the tanks, and reconfigure the secondary containment system at the tank farm to reduce fire risk. The NEB says its approval of the variance and Kinder Morgan Canada’s fulfillment of certain conditions allows it to begin construction at the Burnaby Terminal, subject to any other permits or authorizations which may be required.Burnaby, in a submission to the NEB, said the company failed to consult with the city, and that the modified plans don’t address its significant concerns on boil-over, vapour cloud explosion, and other risks.The Burnaby site has been a focal point of opposition to the project as protesters raise concerns about potential spill damage and emissions increases the pipeline will allow.(THE CANADIAN PRESS)last_img read more

Solutions for global challenges can only be achieved through solidarity – UN

“Solidarity must be the foundation for global solutions,” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said in his message marking International Human Solidarity Day, observed annually on 20 December. “In a world of common challenges, no nation can succeed on its own, but by working together in common cause, we can build a safer, more prosperous future for all.”In his message, Mr. Ban recalled calling on world leaders at the General Assembly debate in September to pay greater attention to five imperatives: achieving sustainable development, preventing conflict, stopping human rights abuses, mitigating the impact of natural disasters, and engaging the talents of women and young people. Without solidarity, Mr. Ban stressed, none of these can be achieved.“This will not happen by itself. Nor will it happen with business as usual. Our times demand something different. We need big thinking, bold action and efforts to connect the dots among global challenges,” he said.General Assembly President Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser echoed Mr. Ban’s remarks, highlighting that the current economic crisis, a constantly changing political sphere, and extreme weather conditions all threaten to slow down development if they are not tackled in a concerted manner by States.“Common challenges require common responses. It is my wholehearted belief that solidarity, cooperation, and partnership between Member States, the UN system and civil society are the cornerstone of efforts to move forward,” Mr. Al-Nasser said.Mr. Al-Nasser also emphasized the importance of solidarity between developed and developing countries and said the upcoming UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) in Brazil in June will be “a distinct opportunity to reinvigorate the international community’s commitment to achieving its sustainable development goals, as well as reaching global consensus on the eradication of poverty and global inequality. It is our chance to ensure that the benefits of sustainable development are extended to people of all countries.”Virginia Dandan, the UN expert on Human Rights and International Solidarity, said solidarity should be seen not as mere rhetoric or act of charity, but as an effective way to respond to threats, drawing strength from partners and expressing a common humanity.“Solidarity should, and must be a positive force in the lives of people and of nations, and must therefore be protected from exploitation and corruption,” she said, adding that world leaders should see it as a key factor for progress.“Our common future is at risk and our common present is under grave threat and yet, world leaders continue the illusion that the crowds and their loud clamour for justice and fair distribution of resources, will eventually tire and go away in due time,” she said. “Their shortsightedness comes with the inability to see the chain that links together climate change, food crises, water scarcity, energy shortages, population pressure and displacement. These global challenges require multilateral global responses.” 20 December 2011Top United Nations officials stressed today that solutions to current world challenges can only be achieved if countries practice solidarity among themselves, calling on States to establish partnerships and dialogue to make progress on issues such as climate change, poverty and conflict prevention. read more

UN agency renews alarm about Palestinian refugees trapped in Iraq

Palestinians living inside Iraq “lack protection, have serious problems obtaining identity cards, and have been the target of continuing harassment, threats, kidnapping and killings,” UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) spokesperson Jennifer Pagonis told a media briefing in Geneva.Ms. Pagonis voiced particular concern about the conditions in Baghdad, noting that late last month armed men there hand-delivered written death threats to several Palestinians – a reprise of a similar episode earlier this year that led to widespread panic among the capital’s Palestinian community.She said UNHCR’s attempts to enlist the help of the new Iraqi Government and the multinational forces stationed inside the country “have yielded modest results” only, and now about 20,000 Palestinians remain, down from 34,000 three years ago.Some Palestinians received preferential treatment under the regime of former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein and supported his 1990 invasion of Kuwait. But they have become targets since Saddam’s overthrow in 2003. The community comprises those who fled to Iraq from their homes in newly created Israel in 1948 and others born in the country.Outside Baghdad, UNHCR has fears for the safety of some 330 Palestinians who tried to flee Iraq and have been stranded at the Al-Tanf border crossing with Syria for more than four months.Describing the humanitarian conditions in the makeshift camp at the border as deplorable, Ms. Pagonis said “winter is coming and there is no solution in sight for these men, women and children.” About 250 people are living in tents which could be flooded when upcoming rains arrive.Tensions are rising, she said, noting Iraqi security forces have regularly visited the site and that medical and sanitation facilities are inadequate. Last month a 14-year-old boy was hit and killed by a truck when he asked for water, while the father of a premature baby who died in hospital was not allowed to leave the area to attend the funeral.Syria, which admitted 300 other Palestinians from Iraq into its El Hol refugee camp in May, is refusing to admit those currently stranded at the border. UNHCR said those who made it to El Hol have only temporary status, limited freedom of movement and no clear prospects for their future.There is also concern about the situation in Jordan’s Ruwayshed refugee camp, where 150 Palestinians from Iraq are living, some since 2003. Ms. Pagonis said that while re-settlement is possible for about 50 of the camp members over the next year, the rest face an uncertain future as Jordan has called on other countries in the region to share the burden. read more

PSP outsells PS Vita in Japan

first_imgThe PS Vita has been available in Japan since December 17, but in only its second week on sale, Sony’s previous generation handheld, the PSP, is outselling it. Not only that, but the 3DS, Wii, and PS3 also sold more units in the run up to Christmas.A drop off in sales the weekend of Christmas is only natural, but it’s the size of the drop that may have Sony a little bit worried. Where as the launch weekend saw the PS Vita shift 324,859 units, between December 19-25 it only sold 72,479–that’s lower than the 101,121 units the PSP sold for the same period. As a sales drop off comparison, the 3DS shifted 482,200 units during the PS Vita launch week and then only dropped to 357,691 sales last week.The reason for the huge drop? Most likely a combination of price and a lack of new games. The PS Vita is the most expensive of the four handhelds on the market right now (3DS, PSP, DS and Vita) with only the more hardcore/early adopter crowd willing to pay for the new hardware. Sony’s new device also didn’t see any new games released post launch, which helps to explain why no PS Vita games featured in the top 20 last week, either.It’s unlikely this situation will stay the same for long. Nintendo had a similar slump following the release of the 3DS due to a lack of new titles. However, now that games such as Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 3D Land, and Monster Hunter 3G have launched, hardware sales are way up. The PS Vita needs a similar rush of popular games, with Final Fantasy, Metal Gear Solid, and Monster Hunter game releases needed. Hopefully they will all arrive next year.

Teachers call a fiveday strike

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Secondary teachers’ unions in Greece decided yesterday to go on a five-day strike starting on Monday 16 September. Their strike coincides with the opening of the school year tomorrow. Teachers are up in arms about recent staff suspensions and transfers.Last May, the government used mobilisation orders to force teachers off a strike, a path the education minister says he will not be using this time.“Mobilisation orders were necessary because the national state examinations were being threatened,” Kostas Arvanitopoulos, Minister of Education, said on Sunday.Meanwhile, university administrators at a number of colleges have voted to start 48-hour strikes, startingtoday..The strike will affect the University of Athens, the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, the University of Macedonia in Thessaloniki and the Thessaloniki Technical College (TEI).Unions say that of the 6,239 administrative staff at third-level institutions across the country, the government is seeking to place 1,765, or 25%, in its mobility scheme, which will end in dismissal if another job for them cannot be found in the public sector.They say colleges cannot afford to lose staff. At the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, for example, there are 750 administrators for 2,200 faculty members and 70,000 students.Source: Kathimerinilast_img read more

James Rodriguez happy at Bayern Munich

first_imgDespite reports linking him with a return to Real Madrid this summer, James Rodriguez insists that he is happy at Bayern MunichThe Colombia international joined the Bundesliga giants last summer in a two-year loan and had an impressive first season at the club under former coach Jupp Heynckes.While Rodriguez fell out of favour in Zinedine Zidane’s plans at Real, the Frenchman’s successor Julen Lopetegui has indicated that he would be happy to take back the 27-year-old this summer.But Rodriguez is happy in Germany and is looking forward to building on a brilliant first campaign.“So far, I’m still here and I’ve had a spectacular first season so I’m very happy there and I feel like the club and the fans love me very much,” he told The Suso Show, via Daily Mail.While Rodriguez has managed to establish himself within the Bayern squad, the language barrier is evidently still a problem.Sergio Ramos, Real MadridZidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.“Every day, I understand a little less German, that’s f****d up,” he said.Bayern chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is also keen on keeping Rodriguez at the Allianz Arena.“Lots of rumours that emanate from Spain are not true. The contract situation of the player is well known to everyone,” said Rummenigge.“He will definitely play for us this season, and I expect him to play for Bayern beyond that.”Rodriguez ended his first season at Bayern with 11 goals in 19 league starts.last_img read more

Diego Simeone explains Thomas Lemar omission

first_imgAtletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone explained that he left Thomas Lemar on the bench due to Angel Correa’s superior understanding of the club’s playing styleThe 22-year-old winger had been a regular at Atletico following his summer arrival from AS Monaco.But Lemar was surprisingly left out of the starting line-up to face his former club in Tuesday’s Champions League opener with Correa being selected instead.When asked why he had dropped Lemar for the game, Simeone revealed his reasons.Gerard Pique, Neymar, BarcelonaLa Liga Betting: Match-day 4 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Despite it being very early into La Liga season, both Barcelona and Real Madrid have had unprecedented starts to their campaigns. With this in…“Correa has been at the club for four years and is more accustomed to our style of play,” Simeone told reporters.“I thought that because of the profile of the match and the opponent, he would be a perfect fit for the attack.“Thomas Lemar knows that earning a spot in the first team is very difficult and he will have to work extremely hard, but he is a big player for our future.”Diego Costa and Jose Gimenez goals in the first half handed Atletico a 2-1 win over Monaco.last_img read more

Meghan Markle and the Queen butting heads on this Shocking issue Duchess

first_imgMeghan MarkleSuits Official FacebookMeghan Markle may still not have gotten over the fact that the Quen isn’t making it easy for her to split from the Royal Palace.Reportedly Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were denied a royal household of their own after they split from Kensington Palace, as the Queen wanted to “keep an eye” on them, a royal expert has claimed. Meghan Markle has made it clear that she wants to carve her own path as a Royal, but it looks like claiming a Royal household of your own may be too drastic of a step and not easily indulged, especially since Meghan joined the Royal Family only last year.Apparently, a royal expert has suggested when they split from Prince William and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, the couple Sussex wanted a royal household of their own. But, ITV’s royal expert Chris Ship claimed the “most high profile” couple were “not allowed” their own household.He told ITV News’ AirTime: “Whilst they are perhaps, you could argue, the most high profile of all the royals at the moment, they come under the wing of Buckingham Palace…..They were not allowed to have their own autonomous household.”  Meghan MarkleGetty ImagesWhich at the face of it seems like the Queen is exercising her control but from the monarch’s point of view, it may seem like quite the sensible step as the Royal Family cannot afford to have or show a split in its ranks. Which is the message, splitting of the Royal households will give to the public. The Queen and Meghan Markle may not see eye to eye on this issue, but at the end of the day, the Duchess of Sussex does have to bend to the will of the Queen.

Condominios Nikte Akumal shut after inspection found no permits

first_imgAkumal. Q.R. — The Federal Attorney for Environmental Protection (Profepa) says they have closed a real estate project in the municipality of Tulum for destruction of vegetation and lack of permits.Government environmental officials paid an inspection visit to a new real estate project called Condominios Nikte Akumal. The project, which is being constructed on more than 900 square meters of land, is building in a coastal dune ecosystem.Profepa found that the three-level building was constructed in an area where protected vegetation once existed. Scrub such as Sea Grape, Beach Verdolaga, Beach Lily, Palma de Coco, Riñonina, Ciricote de Playa and the protected Palma Chit had been removed in order to build.Inspectors requested the federal authorization to build the project, however, officials at Condominios Nikte Akumal were unable to provide any permits including a building permit or environmental impact permit issued by the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources.As a result, Profepa applied a Total Temporary Closure of the works and activities inspected.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)last_img read more

series commissioned in 2008 was Platon’s first photo-essay assignment as staff photographer for the New Yorker which had redoubled its editorial attention to the war in Iraq At the time the Presidential elections were nearing final results and criticism of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan was mounting The series became not only a tribute to military men and women but a reminder that all are stakeholders in the betterment of this country—something Platon says is relevant now more than ever"I never imagined that the ideas kicked around that we all hoped we’d overcome have returned to haunt us again" Platon says "With the rhetoric flying around in this current campaign these pictures are cause to stimulate new respectful debate and help cure society’s amnesia"The essay published now as a book is a visual diary of US soldiers and their families before and after their tours of duty following soldiers through graduation at West Point; training in a staged Iraqi village; aboard the USS San Antonio moments before setting sail; and their return home to their loved onesThe images examine what patriotism means for the families of those who fight: A young man’s t-shirt reads “Iraq veteran against the war”; an African American woman stands proudly in full military regalia; a double-amputee stares directly from his wheelchair; and in arguably the most important image of the 2008 US presidential election an American Muslim mother cradles the grave of her soldier son All in harsh black-and-white"It’s uncompromising" he says "You can’t gloss it over or find the middle gray I wanted people to feel the grit not just in the training but in the love and the loss"Platon is a portrait photographer based in New York City His book Service is available now from Prestel His work will be on exhibition at the Milk Gallery in New York starting June 22 and kicking off with an artist talk on April 23Rachel Lowry is a writer and contributor for TIME LightBox Follow her on Twitter and InstagramNew Delhi: Senior advocates Dushyant Dave Indira Jaising and lawyer Prashant Bhushan on Thursday came in the line of fire of the Supreme Court which questioned their conduct for casting aspersions on judicial officers and judges including of the apex court who were seized of matters relating to the death of Special CBI judge BH Loya The apex court also lashed out at a junior of senior lawyer V Giri and petitioners including NGO Centre for Public Interest Litigation (CPIL) for casting "unfounded aspersions" on the judges of the Bombay High Court and said it was a "serious attempt to scandalise the court and obstruct the course of justice" A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra said the attempt of the petitioners was to create prejudice and to malign the dignity of the judges particularly Justice BR Gavai of the Bombay High Court The bench which also comprised Justices AM Khanwilkar and DY Chandrachud rapped Dave Jaising and Bhushan for making serious attacks against the judiciary during the hearing File image of Supreme Court Reuters Regarding CPIL the court said "Facts have emerged from the record which indicate that a carefully orchestrated attempt has been made during the course of these hearings on behalf of the CPIL to create evidence to cast a doubt on the circumstances leading to the death of judge Loya" Immediately after the verdict an attempt was made by PTI to elicit the reaction of Jaising in the apex court corridor but she refused to make any comment PTI also tried to reach Dave but he did not respond to the calls It was only Bhushan who reacted An anguished apex court said the counsel are expected to assist the court with a sense of objectivity in aid of justice but Bhushan "adopted a dual mantle" assuming the character of a counsel for the intervenor and an individual who was personally interested on behalf of the intervening organisation of which he was a member "He has gone to the length of personally collecting evidence to somehow bolster the case" the bench observed The court also noted that Jaising too has "joined the fray" by requesting the court to issue contempt notices to the Administrative Committee of the Bombay High Court The top court also took strong note of Dave’s plea to bring on record the order of the Nagpur bench of Bombay High Court to allege that one of the two judges who had given statement in the Judge Loya’s death case had ordered settlement of a criminal case against Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis in 2014 "Dave has gone to the extent of insinuating that one individual is controlling the entire judiciary in Maharashtra and elsewhere" the bench said It also said the petitioners cannot assert as of right that they should be allowed to cross-examine a host of persons including the doctors and judicial officers "By casting unfounded aspersions on the judicial officers who had accompanied Judge Loya the petitioners have revealed the real motive of these proceedings which is to bring the judiciary into disrepute on the basis of scurrilous allegations "We find no basis or justification to allow the request for cross-examination The application shall accordingly stand rejected" the bench said adding that the discretion was vested in the court to order cross-examination "A party to a proceeding before this court -particularly a proceeding under Article 32 – cannot demand as of right the production of a person who has filed an affidavit for cross-examination Whether cross-examination should be allowed has to be determined by the court having regard to the interests of justice" the bench said It said "what is worse is the manner in which wholly unfounded aspersions have been cast on the judges of the Bombay High Court following a decision which has been taken in the judicial capacity This constitutes a serious attempt to scandalise the court and obstruct the course of justice" Level four violations put residents in "immediate jeopardy
