BC Requests More Help From Fire Crews

first_imgEight provincial Department of Natural Resources firefightersheaded to Kootenay National Park in British Columbia on Sunday,Aug. 17, to help combat forest fires that have been ravagingwestern Canada for more than a month. British Columbia alone hasabout 880 active fires. The Natural Resources staff members are the third group offirefighters to head west in recent weeks. A team of six currently in Alberta is expected to return to NovaScotia this week. The Natural Resources staff who just left, including a five-member helitack crew, are expected to be in B.C. until earlySeptember. Helitack are specialized initial-attack personnel whoare transported by helicopters to remote fires. Their level ofexperience will complement the wide-ranging experience of theother crew members on the fire line. They will be joined by 10Newfoundland fire personnel and two firefighters from PrinceEdward Island. The decision to send additional staff is again in response torequests for assistance under the Canadian Mutual Aid ResourceSharing Agreement administered by the Canadian Interagency ForestFire Centre. The centre is the national organization responsiblefor co-ordinating the sharing of critical forest fire resourcesin Canada. Nova Scotia is a full participating member of theorganization. The agreement provides rapid assistance andstandardized costs for the benefit of all Canadian fire agencies. Wet weather conditions in Nova Scotia, and the associated reducedfire risk, are making it possible for the province to provide theadditional fire-fighting services. The costs associated with thisassistance are fully recoverable and will not reduce NovaScotia’s fire-fighting budget. Nova Scotia staff gain valuable experience from theseassignments, increasing their ability to effectively fight largefires at home in the future.last_img read more

FILM FESTIVAL CHARITY GALA WARNED TO STOP USING SICK KIDS TRADEMARK

first_img Login/Register With: A black-tie charity gala calling itself a “Toronto Film Fest Official Closing” party, and billed as a toy drive benefiting Sick Kids, has been warned by the hospital to stop using its trademark. Neither Sick Kids Hospital nor TIFF are affiliated with the Saturday night affair.Lynn Bessoudo, public relations manager for the hospital, confirmed the murky situation to the Star on Friday. The Evening with the Stars event, which goes under several names including “City Gala 2017 TIFF Soiree,” has never donated proceeds to the hospital and has no association with them, she wrote in an email.“They were using our trademark to promote and solicit for the event without our permission. We did demand that they stop using our trademark and they have complied, removing it from their website.” Facebook Twitter LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisementcenter_img Bessoudo noted that the organizers “have dropped off some toys at the hospital in the past.” The event is listed as the 21st annual affair of its kind in some of the marketing materials. Another said it started in 2004.Actor D-Teflon, listed as the keynote speaker of Saturday night’s event, said he was so frustrated with Sick Kids that he wouldn’t be returning to the hospital where he says he’s been doing meet-and-greets for a decade.“For us, it was just a slap in the face,” he told the Star over the phone. The phrase “sick kids,” he added, “doesn’t belong to the hospital.”They could take their donations to any other children’s hospital, “because at the end of the day, we don’t need to go to Sick Kids.”The event, planned for 8 p.m. at the Bond Place Hotel, just east of Yonge-Dundas Square, “celebrates the careers” of recently departed Entertainment Tonight correspondents Rick Campanelli and Natasha Gargiulo. A rep for Campanelli confirmed that he’d be receiving an award at the event.A single ticket to the event — which promises an “unprecedented opportunity to meet, mingle, dine and party” with “Hollywood A-list” celebrities, athletes, Playboy Playmates and models — will run you $165, if you aren’t part of industry unions. An “Ultra VIP” table for 10, including dinner and “1 bottle,” costs $1,500.The event’s Instagram account, @tiffgala, says the “dinner is now sold out.”D-Teflon said the price tag covers venue costs and food, and that the company hasn’t made any profit from the weekend affair.In an earlier email to the Star, a rep for the Miami-based organizing company Suited LifeStyle Celebrity Events Group wrote that the city gala event is “strictly for toy donations,” but also that guests can make monetary donations if they wish.“They must make it directly to the hospitals we choose to deal with and the foundation that we believe in supporting,” the email read. D-Teflon said that, while no monetary donation was required, they’d been dropping off cheques from attendees of their events for years.This year’s event listing on Facebook calls it “mandatory” for guests to bring either two toys to donate to Sick Kids or a cheque made out directly to the hospital, with a minimum donation amount of $25.Outside of Toronto, the company runs events in the United States, with Arnold Palmer Hospital in Orlando and Los Angeles Children’s Hospitals listed as toy recipients. The company email said the primary goal was for a million toys to reach the hands of kids, and wasn’t financial gain.Bessoudo did confirm that the toys that Sick Kids has received complied with the hospital’s guidelines, which require toys to be new in order to avoid contamination for young patients with compromised immune systems.She couldn’t, however, confirm an exact number of toys donated.D-Teflon said that after an event last year, they brought “nine SUVs” full of toys to Sick Kids. “Because it’s not money, it’s not good enough for them,” he said.The Bond Place Hotel general manager declined to comment on “any information regarding guests or proceedings that may or may not take place at our property.”TIFF also confirmed it has no affiliation with the event.By VICTORIA GIBSON – Toronto Star Staff ReporterSOURCE:  TORONTO STAR Advertisement An earlier version of the City Gala invitation, still available on Facebook, features official logos of TIFF and Sick Kids Hospital, though the event is unaffiliated.

UN rights chief warns against repression of planned protests in Yemen

1 March 2011The United Nations human rights chief today warned Yemeni authorities against violent repression of planned mass peaceful protests, and called on the government to protect the rights of demonstrators and journalists under international law. “People have the legitimate right to express their grievances and demands to their government,” said the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay, in a press release in which she also denounced previous violence against protestors in Yemen, which is reported to have resulted in a number of deaths and injuries.Yemen is one of several countries in the region that has experienced protests calling for democratic change, following popular uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt that led to the ouster of long-time rulers there.Noting reports that opposition protestors in Yemen have called for a “Day of Anger” on Tuesday, Ms. Pillay urged all parties to exercise restraint and to respect the right to life and the freedom of peaceful assembly and expression.“We have seen over and over again in the past few weeks that violent responses, in breach of international law, do not make the protestors go away and only serve to exacerbate their frustration and anger,” Ms. Pillay said.She cited reports of attacks, intimidation and harassment against local and international journalists covering the protests, as well as the arrest and detention of journalists and human rights defenders.The High Commissioner was particularly concerned about reports of enforced disappearances of political activists and called for immediate clarification on the whereabouts of individuals recently transferred to the capital, Sana’a, from the port city of Aden.“The authorities must release all individuals arrested for demonstrating peacefully, and human rights defenders and journalists must be protected as they carry out their important work,” she said, noting the importance of those responsible for public security understanding that their actions are governed by international law and they can be held personally accountable for breaches. “As a general rule, army units with no training or equipment to deal with street protests should not be deployed in cities,” Ms. Pillay said. “If there is no alternative, they should be under the tight control of qualified officers.” Calling for a “meaningful, broad and inclusive dialogue” in Yemen to chart a way forward that respects the human rights aspirations of the people, she also urged opposition protestors not to resort to violence and expressed concern that medical personnel were allegedly denied access to treat injured protestors during earlier demonstrations.“Across the Middle East and North Africa, people have been taking their governments to task,” Ms. Pillay said. “The only way forward is to listen to them and grant them their due rights to participate in the decisions that deeply affect their lives.” read more

Qatar says Saudiled ultimatum unreasonable

first_imgA general view of the Qatari side of the Abu Samrah border crossing with Saudi Arabia. Photo: AFPQatar on Saturday denounced a sweeping list of demands from Saudi Arabia and its allies in an escalating Gulf diplomatic crisis as unreasonable and an impingement on the emirate’s sovereignty.Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt want Qatar to meet the 13-point ultimatum in return for an end to a nearly three-week-old diplomatic and trade “blockade” of the emirate.Qatar has been given 10 days to meet the demands, which apparently include a call to close down broadcaster Al-Jazeera, but Doha said the requests were unrealistic.“This list of demands confirms what Qatar has said from the beginning-the illegal blockade has nothing to do with combating terrorism, it is about limiting Qatar’s sovereignty, and outsourcing our foreign policy,” said Sheikh Saif bin Ahmed Al-Thani, head of Qatar’s government communications office.“The US secretary of state recently called upon the blockading nations to produce a list of grievances that was ‘reasonable and actionable’.“The British foreign secretary asked that the demands be ‘measured and realistic’. This list does not satisfy that criteria.”The four Arab governments delivered the demands to Qatar through mediator Kuwait on Thursday, more than two weeks after severing all ties with the emirate and imposing an embargo.The document has not been published but has been widely leaked and the demands are sweeping in their scope.They include the closure of Al-Jazeera television, a long-standing source of conflict between Doha and neighbouring countries which accuse it of fomenting regional strife.Qatar faces Gulf ‘divorce’The ultimatum also includes calls for Doha to cut ties to groups including the Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic State organisation, Al-Qaeda and Lebanon’s Iran-backed Hezbollah movement.Qatar has also been asked to hand over opposition figures wanted by its three neighbours and Egypt and to downgrade diplomatic ties with Iran.Notably, it has also been told to shut a Turkish military base in the emirate.Qatar’s foreign ministry said it was “studying” the list, “in order to prepare an appropriate response”.Meshal Hamad Al-Thani, Qatar’s ambassador to the United States, tweeted that the list was meant to “punish Qatar for its independence”.Qatar was warned by one of its most hawkish critics in the region that unless it meets the list of demands, Doha faces “divorce” from its Gulf neighbours.Anwar Gargash, the UAE’s state minister for foreign affairs, said Qatar should yield to the demands.“It would be wiser that (Qatar) deal seriously with the demands and concerns of the neighbours or a divorce will take place,” he wrote on Twitter.The demands confirm that “the crisis is profound,” Gargash said, adding Qatar had leaked the document containing the demands.Speaking at a news conference on Saturday, Gargash called for guarantees from Western countries to help resolve the row.“If Qatar follows the path of wisdom… we would need a system of guarantees and controls” in order to implement an accord with Doha, he said, calling for “European and American guarantees”.‘Attempt to silence’Al-Jazeera, one of the largest news organisations in the world, responded to the demands by saying it “deplores” calls for it to be taken off air.“We in the network believe that any call for closing down Al-Jazeera is nothing but an attempt to silence the freedom of expression in the region and to suppress people’s right to information,” said the broadcaster.In the other official response out of Qatar, its Human Rights Committee said the demands represented “gross violations” of basic rights.Qatar is a member of the Gulf Cooperation Council with Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.As well as cutting diplomatic ties, Qatar’s neighbours closed their airspace to Qatari carriers and blocked the emirate’s only land border, vital for its food imports.Qatar is home to the largest US base in the region, Al-Udeid, and Bahrain is home to the Fifth Fleet of the United States Navy.US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has urged a diplomatic solution, and Washington has been pushing for a clear list of grievances that are “reasonable and actionable”.His spokeswoman Heather Nauert said Tuesday the United States was “mystified” that Saudi Arabia and its Gulf allies had failed to present details justifying their embargo on Qatar.US President Donald Trump, however, has made statements siding with Saudi Arabia in the crisis.British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said Friday that any conditions placed on Qatar should be “measured and realistic”.last_img read more

Apple patents an inexpensive 3D projection system

first_img Explore further (PhysOrg.com) — The U.S. patent office has granted Apple a patent for a 3-D projection system that doesn’t require the use of bulky 3-D glasses. This gives the viewer more freedom of movement and viewing angles. Apple is not the only company that’s involved in auto-stereoscopic R&D; however Apple’s patent has picked apart the limitations of three categories of auto-stereoscopic system:1. Ghost like or transparent images in volumetric displays. 2. The viewer required to remain stationary using the parallax barrier method.3. The use of holographic images requires greater computer power and larger bandwidth, keeping the commercial cost higher that is required for other auto-stereoscopic systems. Apple patent application for 3D viewing glasses The name Apple has given to this simple 3-D system is called, “Three Dimensional Display System.” This auto-stereoscopic system works by projecting each pixel onto a reflective, textured surface, which is then bounced into a viewer’s left and right eye separately; this produces the 3D or stereoscopic effect. By sensing the locations of both eyes of each viewer, multiple viewers could observe the 3-D effect from a variety of angles. Each pixel is aimed at a curved surface, where it reflects onto the correct eye.

Apple’s main objective is to develop a 3-D glass-free auto-stereoscopic system that would give viewers the freedom to move around without being tied down to bulky 3-D glasses.

He then ordered the former president held in preventive prison pending an investigation, calling the retired general a “flight risk.”Judge Gálvez gave prosecutors three months to continue the investigation, after which the 64-year-old retired general will face trial.Prosecutors and investigators from a U.N. commission tasked with fighting high-level graft in Guatemala accuse Pérez Molina of orchestrating a scheme in which businesses bribed corrupt officials to clear their imports through customs at a fraction of the actual tax rate.They say the accusations are based on some 89,000 wire-tapped phone calls.The scheme — dubbed “La Línea” (“The Line”), for a hotline businesses allegedly called to access a network of corrupt officials — collected $3.8 million in bribes between May 2014 and April 2015, including $800,000 each to Pérez Molina and jailed ex-Vice President Roxana Baldetti, prosecutors allege.Pérez Molina denies the charges. Guatemala ex-President Otto Pérez Molina appeared nervous and tired during a corruption hearing in Guatemala City, on Sept. 8, 2015. Johan Ordóñez/AFPThe conservative leader defied months of mass protests calling on him to quit, but was left with little choice after Congress stripped him of his immunity and a judge issued a warrant for his arrest last week.He resigned Wednesday night and was jailed Thursday after an initial court appearance.Guatemala meanwhile held general elections Sunday in a climate of widespread disgust with politics.Comedian and political novice Jimmy Morales won the presidential race, but fell well short of the 50 percent needed to avoid a runoff.He will face either former First Lady Sandra Torres or millionaire businessman Manuel Baldizón in a second-round vote on Oct. 25.Newly sworn-in President Alejandro Maldonado, a former Constitutional Court judge, will serve out the remainder of Pérez Molina’s term, which ends on Jan. 14.

FHFA GSEs Overhaul Mortgage Insurance Master Policy

Through an ongoing effort, FHFA says both enterprises have worked with the mortgage insurance industry “”to address and update gaps in the existing master policy framework.””””Updating the mortgage insurance master policy requirements is a significant accomplishment for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac,”” said FHFA acting director Ed DeMarco. “”The new standards update and clarify the responsibilities of insurers, originators and servicers and they enhance the insurance protection provided to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which ultimately benefits taxpayers.””The “”new requirements””:http://www.fhfa.gov/webfiles/25856/MIpolicy120213F.pdf include a number of provisions intended to facilitate faster and more consistent claims processing, establishing specific timeframes and creating standards for the circumstances under which coverage must be maintained and when it may be revoked.Also included are requirements for master policies to support recently developed loss mitigation strategies and guidelines to promote information sharing among mortgage insurers, servicers, and the GSEs.FHFA anticipates the master policies will go into effect in 2014 pending review and approval by state insurance regulators. Both enterprises will provide guidance to lenders and servicers in the coming weeks regarding specific effective dates.For their parts, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac both put their support behind the new master policies.””The updated master policy for mortgage insurance announced today builds on the market reforms of the past five years, and we were happy to work with FHFA to bring about this latest step toward greater operational efficiency and transparency in the mortgage market,”” said Paige Wisdom, EVP and chief enterprise risk officer at Freddie Mac. “”We look forward to working with our servicers and the nation’s mortgage insurers as they adopt the new master policy.””””Mortgage insurers are an important part of the mortgage finance system and these changes help lay the foundation for a stronger system going forward,”” added Andrew Bon Salle, EVP of single-family underwriting, pricing, and capital markets at Fannie Mae. “”These updates will help us better manage our credit risk, which we believe will ultimately benefit Fannie Mae, mortgage insurers, homeowners and taxpayers.””last_img read more

Community Banks Argue for Expanded CFPB Exemptions

first_img One of the more nagging ripples of post-crisis reform is the amount of regulations laid upon the shoulders of financial institutions. Akin to the sweeping post-9/11 security reforms that banks now implement, cumbersome new regulations for lending are proving costly to small banks, which are having trouble competing with large institutions due to expensive compliance costs.To combat this, the 45-member Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA) coalition submitted a letter to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau asking the agency to expand the small creditor exemptions set out under its mortgage rules that went into effect in January.ICBA’s main request is that mortgage loans held in small creditors’ portfolios automatically receive qualified mortgage safe harbor status for as long as the loans are held in those portfolios.ICBA also wants a small creditor exemption from escrow requirements for higher-priced mortgage loans held in portfolio. Small banks, even beyond the scope of the ICBA letter, have roundly complained that current rules covering escrow and qualified mortgages make it too cumbersome and expensive to originate loans to certain consumers.Under current rules, small creditors are exempt if they originate 500 or fewer first-lien mortgages in the preceding calendar year and have less than $2 billion in total assets at the end of the preceding calendar year. However, many community banks originate more than 500 loans annually, and ICBA believes the loan threshold to be far too low.The main thrust of ICBA’s argument is that community banks, by virtue of more personalized customer service and a preference to underwrite loans based on personal relationships rather than faceless financial data, simply operate differently than large creditors and should not, therefore, be held to the same rules where those rules cover how business is conducted. Many community bank customers—whom ICBA calls “the underserved”—would be unable to get loans through traditional channels at larger institutions, the letter argues.ICBA states that there must be “a cleaner approach that adheres to the mission of the CFPB and the intent of the mortgage rules.” July 23, 2014 498 Views in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Headlines, News, Origination Community Bankers Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Qualified Mortgage Regulation 2014-07-23 Scott_Morgancenter_img Community Banks Argue for Expanded CFPB Exemptions Sharelast_img read more

Cape Grace has taken the final step into transform

first_imgCape Grace has taken the final step into transforming itself into the luxury hotel that embodies everything Cape Town. The brand new Signal restaurant in Cape Grace is mixing all the influences of Cape cuisine into its new menu. Signal specializes in fine cuisine created with local ingredients and prepared with the traditions of Cape Town’s many and diverse cultures.What sets Cape food apart is the fact there are so many recognized cultures with different eating traditions and individual styles of cooking. The traders who traveled on the Spice Route brought with them Dutch, English, French Huguenot and Asian cuisine, which have now blended with local ingredients to create a cuisine which is uniquely Cape Town. The Cape provides fresh produce, locally farmed fruit and vegetables, a wide range of meat including lamb, venison and fresh fish which literally comes straight from the boat.Executive Chef Malika Van Reenen brings the tradition of two generations of wonderful Cape cooking – her mother’s and grandmother’s – to Signal. “The current menu is vastly influenced by my Cape Malay background, which is one of the Cape’s prominent cultures,” comments Chef Malika.Malika’s first menu at Signal includes a selection of local favorites, with her own flair. Appetizer highlights from the menu include saffron-scented risotto with grilled prawns and an ostrich duo of tea-smoked carpaccio and tartar with melba toast and fig brûlée. Main courses include the signature dish of cumin-crusted springbok loin, spicy potato samosas, coriander crème fraîche, baby spinach and beetroot chutney which epitomizes van Reenen’s local touch. With the spectacular waterside setting, many superb seafood dishes are also offered, prepared beautifully with delicate herbs and spices. For those who saved room for dessert, dark chocolate marquise, candied ginger ice cream and orange is the perfect ending.www.capegrace.comlast_img read more
