17Million Road Paving Contract Awarded

first_imgWhether travelling to a ceilidh or a Cape Breton clam bake, Nova Scotians will have a smoother trip on Highway 19. The province awarded a $1.7-million road paving contract to Dexter Construction Company Ltd. to repave 6.6 kilometres of Highway 19 (Ceilidh Trail). “The Ceilidh Trail is starting to realize its terrific potential as a recreation and tourism resource and this job will help smooth the way,” said Maurice Smith, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal. “This job and many others are listed in the province’s 5-Year Highway Improvement Plan that serves as a long-term blueprint for maintaining Nova Scotia’s highway system.” The road will be paved from 1.2 kilometres north of the intersection of Creignish Mountain Road north for 6.6 kilometers. The province plans to pave 500 kilometres of road this year and resurface more than 200 kilometres. This year’s $281-million road construction budget is part of a three-year stretch of record-breaking highway improvement investments.

Longtime Conservative New Brunswick federal politician Keith Ashfield dies

first_imgFREDERICTON – Tributes were pouring in Monday for veteran New Brunswick and federal politician Keith Ashfield, whose death at the age of 66 was announced Sunday.Rick Lafrance, president of the Progressive Conservative Party of New Brunswick, posted a short message on Twitter announcing that Ashfield had passed away.“On behalf of the Progressive Conservative Party of New Brunswick I want to express our sorrow upon the passing of Keith Ashfield,” it said. “Our deepest sympathy to Keith’s wife, Judy, his family and to everyone who loved our friend and colleague.”Ashfield served as the member of Parliament for the riding of Fredericton from 2008 to 2015 and filled a variety of positions in then-prime minister Stephen Harper’s cabinet.From 2011 to 2013, Ashfield was the federal fisheries minister, but was defeated in the 2015 federal election.Harper also posted a message on Twitter, expressing his appreciation for the long-serving politician.“A champion of New Brunswick, Keith Ashfield’s advice was always sought and valued at the cabinet table,” Harper wrote. “Laureen and I mourn the loss of a great Canadian and friend.”Ashfield was diagnosed with cancer in 2013, but had reportedly beaten the disease by the fall of 2014 and announced last month that he would seek a nomination to run as a provincial Tory in the fall election.Before his time in federal politics, Ashfield served as a provincial member of the legislature from 1999 to 2008. He was named deputy speaker of the legislature and was later sworn in as minister of natural resources and energy.“Saddened to hear of the passing of former provincial and federal cabinet minister Keith Ashfield,” New Brunswick Premier Brian Gallant, a Liberal, said on Twitter. “Keith was a dedicated public servant and he will be sorely missed.”From 2011 to 2013, Ashfield served as the federal minister of fisheries and oceans, but was defeated in the 2015 federal election.“Tremendously saddened to learn of the passing of Keith Ashfield, a much-admired member of our Conservative family and a friend to all of us,” said federal Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer.“As an MLA, MP, and cabinet minister, Keith was always a champion for the people of New Brunswick. His loss will be felt across the province.”(Global News)last_img read more


first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Facebook A comedian and actor said a racist incident he saw on the streets of Toronto on Saturday was not representative of the Canada he wants to live in.Andrew Phung had dropped his family off at Rogers Centre for a Blue Jays game, parked his car nearby and was walking to the stadium when he says he saw a police officer tell a driver to “go back to your country.”​Phung, who stars in the CBC sitcom Kim’s Convenience, described the alleged incident in a series of tweets Saturday afternoon and a phone interview Saturday evening. Toronto police said they’re investigating.I literally just witnessed a @TorontoPolice officer shout “go back to your country” because they were confused at the crosswalk. To which two white dudes then shouted “amen, go back to where you fucking came from.” THIS IS NOT MY CANADA!— Andrew Phung (@andrewphung) July 7, 2018 Login/Register With: He said he was waiting to cross the downtown street with a group of about 20 other people when the light changed, and a driver he described as a person of colour hesitated to pull through the intersection.Phung said an on-duty police officer shouted at the driver to proceed, which the person did, but as the officer was walking back toward the sidewalk, Phung said he heard the cop say, “If you can’t drive, go back to your country.”Phung said he responded by shouting, “That’s not cool.”“Two men beside me then said, ‘Nope, totally cool. If you can’t drive, go back to you f—-ing country.’ The comedian in me then burst out and then I proceeded to ask them why they thought driving ability equated citizenship in this country.”Phung says he heard a police officer telling a driver, ‘If you can’t drive, go back to your country.’ (CBC)Phung said he thinks the driver hesitated because the intersection had two sets of lights that were close together, and the other set of lights was red.“I think as a whole we can all agree that we’ve all been confused before in Toronto traffic,” Phung said.“It was just so disappointing to see this coming from a police officer,” said Phung. “They’re the moral backbone of our community, they uphold the law. So when you see a police officer doing that, it empowered two other people to join in on that racism.”“We have spent the evening gathering information so we can investigate what happened,” said Mark Pugash, spokesperson for Toronto police, on Saturday.THE CANADIAN PRESS Advertisement Advertisement Advertisement Twitterlast_img read more

Morocco to Face Extremely High Water Stress by 2040 Report

Rabat – Morocco is projected to face extremely high water stress by 2040, according to American think tank the World Resources Institute (WRI).Morocco is among the 33 countries out of 167 expected to face extremely high water stress in 25 years’ time, says WRI researchers, who compiled the index by measuring competition for and depletion of surface water (lakes and rivers) each decade from 2010 to 2040.According to the WRI’s Aqueduct Water Stress Projections, half of these 33 countries expected to face extremely high water stress are the in the Middle East and North Africa region. In addition to Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Bahrain, Kuwait, the Palestinian territories, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Iraq, Turkey, Syria, Jordan and Oman are also projected to suffer from water availability problems in the foreseeable future.WRI says that changes in climate, economic development, urbanization, and population growth are among the main reasons that will impact water resources in these countries.“The good news is countries can take actions to reduce that stress and the risk associated with how they manage water resources,” Betsy Otto, director of the WRI’s Global Water Programme, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation, citing Singapore as an example in the use of innovative methods .To face their water-related issues, the report projects that MENA countries will increasingly rely on recycling waste water, a technique to treat water and allow it to be used again by households. Other countries will rely on desalination to remove salt from sea and ground water.© Morocco World News. All Rights Reserved.

Do not instruct me Waters warns Mnuchin in heated hearing

WASHINGTON — Things got a bit heated at the end of more than three hours of testimony by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin before the House Financial Services Committee on Tuesday when he was peppered with questions about releasing President Donald Trump’s tax returns.Mnuchin, who had already faced similar questions before a different committee earlier Tuesday, told the committee chairwoman, Maxine Waters, that he needed to leave at 5:15 p.m. to make a 5:30 p.m. meeting in his office with a foreign leader.Waters, D-Calif., asked Mnuchin if he could give the committee another 15 minutes so members who had been waiting for their five-minute turn could ask him questions.Mnuchin said it would be “embarrassing” if he kept the foreign leader, whom he later identified as an official of Bahrain, waiting any longer.He and Waters then sparred over whether Mnuchin would agree to come back two more times in May to allow lawmakers who had not had a chance to ask questions get a turn.Mnuchin said that he had a list of appearances by other Treasury secretaries and that none of them had been forced to testify for more than three hours and 15 minutes. He said that when Republicans controlled the House, “they did not treat the secretary of the Treasury this way.”Waters, however, told him: “This is a new day and it’s a new chair, and I have the gavel at this point. If you wish to leave, you may.”That comment seemed to confuse Mnuchin, who did not know whether Waters was ending the hearing.Mnuchin told Waters, “Please dismiss everybody. I believe you are supposed to take the gavel and bang it.”Waters replied sharply, “Do not instruct me as to how I am to conduct this hearing.”In the end, Waters won the day. Mnuchin, probably remembering the power that a congressional committee chair wields, stayed for another 15 minutes of questions and then told Waters, “I look forward to being back in May, and we will work on a date.”To which Waters, one of Trump’s favourite targets for insults, replied, “Thank you very much.”Martin Crutsinger, The Associated Press read more

Burundi UN advocate for children welcomes rebels release of child soldiers

The separation of 112 children, including two girls, by the Forces Nationales pour la Liberation (FNL) shows that the demobilization process of children associated with the rebel group has “finally begun,” Radhika Coomaraswamy said in a press release.The children have been transferred to the Gitega Demobilization Centre, “where they will receive support to embrace a new life,” she said.The process was facilitated thanks to joint efforts by the UN Integrated Office in Burundi (BINUB), the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), and other partners.The FNL has also committed to released 200 more children from its ranks in the near future.The Security Council has repeatedly voiced its concerns over delays in implementing the 2006 Comprehensive Ceasefire Agreement signed between the Government and the FNL, the last major rebel hold-out group in Burundi, which is rebuilding after a brutal civil war between the Hutu majority and the Tutsi minority.“For the sake of the peace process in Burundi, we must ensure that demobilization of former child combatants remains a priority and that they are properly reintegrated into their communities,” Ms. Coomaraswamy emphasized. 9 April 2009The Secretary-General’s Special Representative on children and armed conflict today welcomed the release of over 100 child soldiers by a key rebel group in Burundi, a move which will allow them the chance to rebuild their lives. read more

Mandate of UN peacekeepers in Côte dIvoire extended another month

Welcoming the progress made by the leaders of Côte d’Ivoire in meeting the terms of the South African-brokered peace agreement, the latest in a series of accords, the United Nations Security Council today extended the mandate of the UN peacekeeping mission there for another month, as it did in April.It decided unanimously that “the mandate of the United Nations Operation in Côte d’Ivoire (UNOCI) and of the French forces which support it shall be extended for a period of one month until 4 June 2005.”The resolution called on all Ivorian parties to ensure that the elections scheduled for later this year will be free, fair and transparent and welcomed President Laurent Gbagbo’s announcement, in accordance with a letter sent by South African President Thabo Mbeki, that all candidates nominated by the party signatories to the 2003 Linas-Marcoussis peace agreement would be eligible as presidential candidates.The Council thanked UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) for their peacemaking efforts and especially Mr. Mbeki for his role as mediator on behalf of the African Union (AU).Meanwhile, UNOCI reported humanitarian agencies as now saying that thousands of people were displaced by the recent ethnic clashes in Duékoué.After conducting a joint assessment mission to Duékoué, humanitarian agencies underscored the importance of UNOCI providing adequate protection to the sites where displaced people are camping, by strengthening UN patrols and positioning men in the vicinity of these sites and host families. read more

Shutdown looming Senate rejects House GOP conditions on temporary spending bill

The Senate also stripped a provision that would have eliminated the tax on medical devices.House Republicans had added the provisions early Sunday morning in their campaign to undo Obama’s signature domestic program.The vote came less than 10 hours before a possible shutdown and with no compromise in sight. Democrats — and a few Republicans — are pressing for the House to approve a straightforward spending bill with no conditions. read more

Dont exploit the faith of political opponents say Archbishops

first_imgThe Church of England has called on parliamentary candidates not to “exploit the faith” of their opponents during the General Election. In a joint letter the Archbishops of Canterbury and York told Church of England members that “the religious faith of any election candidate should not be treated by opponents as a vulnerability to be exploited”. The letter said: “We look forward to a media and political climate where all candidates can feel confident that they can be open about the impact of their faith on their vocation to public service.”Last month Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron, who is an evangelical Christian, was questioned on his views about homosexuality on Channel 4 News, and refused to clarify his position on whether gay sex was a sin. Last week he told the BBC: “I don’t believe gay sex is a sin.“I take the view that as a political leader though my job is not to pontificate on theological matters.”The Archbishops also alluded to concerns about immigration. The letter said: “Offering a generous and hospitable welcome to refugees and migrants is a vital expression of our common humanity, but it is not without cost and we should not be deaf to the legitimate concerns that have been expressed about the scale of population flows and the differential impact it has on different parts of society.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

In 2015 the Archbishops’ letter was criticised by Conservative MP Nadine Dorries for a message which she said was “left-wing leaning”.The letter condemned inequality as “evil” and said Britain had been “dominated” by “rampant consumerism and individualism” since the Thatcher era. This year’s message celebrates “marriage, the family and the household” as “foundations for a good society” and encourages Christians to “set aside apathy and cynicism and to participate, and encourage others to do the same.”center_img They also said religion may have the answer to the growing threat of extremism, adding that politicians “must also recognise that solutions will not be found simply in further secularisation of the public realm.

More and more Greeks requesting paternity tests says DNA expert

first_imgA surge has been recorded in the number or paternity tests being requested at Greek DNA labs across the country since the beginning of 2019, according to forensics scientists.Dr Leda Kovatsi, associate professor of forensic medicine and toxicology and head of the DNA Department at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUT) told Kathimerini that January and February are the lab’s busiest months.According to Dr Kovatsi, the labs are receiving an increasing number of requests for tests primarily from men but also women who are uncertain about the paternity of a child.“Very often it concerns children that have been born out of wedlock and men want to know it is really theirs before recognising them,” she said.“We also have requests from spouses who have doubts about one of their children. We had a father who had three children out of wedlock, and while he was sure about the first two, he had doubts about the third,” she added, commenting that paternity tests in Greece are somewhat of a “seasonal product”.“Over the holidays, families meet and they stir up doubts and old disagreements. Nobody bothers us in the summer,” she said. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

The Last Jedi is Out Extreme Fan Reactions What Comes Next and

first_imgStay on target The new Star Wars movie is out. If you’re reading this site, chances are you’ve seen it but we’ll try to keep things mostly spoiler-free. You know, for anyone who just parked their ship on the beach and wandered in. Even so, take this as a warning that I’m writing this assuming you’ve already seen the movie. Little things might get spoiled, but no major plot details will be discussed. Either way, the thing you need to know about the movie is: It’s fantastic. Rian Johnson took some huge risks with the franchise, and while maybe not every one of them paid off, most did spectacularly. No matter where you came down on the movie, this is what the series needs to do if it’s going to last as long as we all want it to. Disney is going to keep making Star Wars movies long past when we’re all dead. Entries like this keeps the series from getting samey.But hey, not everyone agrees. That would be fine if it weren’t for the fact that the internet makes everything worse. It’s not enough to not like something and move on. For many on the internet, not liking a multi-million-dollar tentpole in a sci-fi franchise is cause for a moral crusade. To that effect, some fans have even started a petition to get The Last Jedi removed from official Star Wars canon. Apparently, they’d rather have a giant hole in the story than one with a slightly disillusioned hero. The Change.org petition, Comic Book reports, contains numerous spoilers and mostly takes issue with the fact that Luke wasn’t in it very much. And that his perspectives on things have changed over the years. As if the entire point of this new trilogy wasn’t to pass the torch from the old Star Wars characters to the new ones.The petition turned out to be a joke that got out of hand, and its creator has called for the thousands of people who signed it to put their energy towards something more positive. Good on him. In an update, Henry Walsh tells the story of how he was recovering from a vehicle accident when he saw the film. He was still disappointed by the movie, but his feelings were exacerbated by the pain.“So please, while we all love Star Wars, I urge every single supporter who signed this, to also take a few minutes to look at other petitions on Change.Org, ones that are important, or look at causes on GoFundMe. Places where we can make a difference that matters,” he writes. Walsh seems like a stand-up guy, and everyone should take his advice. But this petition doesn’t exist in a vacuum. Thousands of people signed it, one Facebook troll claimed to review-bomb the movie’s audience score on Rotten Tomatoes, and there has been no end of toxic vitriol on Twitter. Even as Walsh tries to turn his joke petition towards something positive, there are still too many bad fans on the internet taking their disappointment too far.Kylo Ren, the worst Star Wars fan. (Photo via StarWars.com)You don’t have to like every part of a thing to be a fan. There are two whole prequels and entire arcs of Star Wars: The Clone Wars that I’m not a fan of. But they’re canon. They’re part of the story, and ultimately they add up to the gigantic amazing storied work. A testament to human accomplishment and collaboration. It’s inevitable that there are going to be parts of this that you personally don’t like. In this case, it’s inexplicably one of the best parts, but hey, to each their own. Some people like Jar Jar, you can’t reason with everybody. But it all has a right to exist.I still take issue with equating wiping The Last Jedi from canon with Disney’s dismissal of the Augmented Universe, the books, comics and video games that made up Star Wars canon before Disney bought Lucasfilm and made plans to continue the franchise. It purports that there’s no difference between a movie and highly-polished fanfiction. I love some of that AU stuff too, but let’s not pretend it was a masterpiece worth preserving and hitching the future of the movies too. The Han Solo Trilogy was great, as was the New Jedi Academy and basically everything with Mara Jade. Other than that? Did anyone really need to see Luuke on the big screen? Or Luuuke?Anyway, that’s enough airtime to bad fans, let’s focus on some positive Star Wars stuff. Like Kelly Marie Tran. One of The Last Jedi’s breakout stars, Tran was about to quit acting entirely before she got the role. Since the premiere, you could see her walking on air in every appearance, as though she doesn’t quite believe it’s all really happening. It’s the same reaction we’d all have if we were suddenly cast in a Star Wars movie, and it’s super endearing. Over the weekend, Tran was in a bar with a friend when she heard a table nearby discussing The Last Jedi. She was just as much of a creep as any of us would be, eavesdropping on the conversation and giggling when the conversation turned to her character. Fortunately, the people talking about the movie didn’t think it was creepy. Upon hearing about how much they loved Rose Tico in the movie, Tran introduced herself to the group. They were understandably psyched. Star Wars x Adidas Ultraboost Photos Have Leaked’Star Wars Pinball’ Has Your Favorite Brand in Ball Form center_img Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. She’s a delight.Now that we’re all in a feel-good mood, it’s of course time to look to the future. Star Wars will never end as long as Disney holds the reigns, and so neither will the speculation about what’s to come. Making Star Wars reports that J.J. Abrams has already made his pitch for Star Wars: Episode IX. That’s literally all we know about the movie right now. With the way The Last Jedi ended, Episode IX could go in pretty much any direction. All that seems certain is there will probably be some kind of time jump, much like there was between Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. What remains of the resistance will probably have built themselves up a bit, allowing for a small spark of hope that they’ll be able to beat the First Order. If that’s the case, we can only assume that Kylo Ren will have only grown to be more powerful. Maybe he’ll even rival Palpatine when we see him next.What’s more exciting to think about is what comes later. Rian Johnson is taking the lead on a completely new Star Wars trilogy after Episode IX is done. That could explain some of the more… controversial choices that Johnson made in The Last Jedi. Remember that his trilogy is said to explore a corner of the galaxy Star Wars has never touched. That’s suddenly way more possible after The Last Jedi. Without getting too deep into the details, the movie makes it a point to say that heritage doesn’t matter. That Jedi, or at least extremely force-sensitive heroes, can come from anywhere. The point is hammered home at the very end when, spoilers ahead, the movie returns to Canto Bright and gives us the briefest, subtlest glimpse at a force-sensitive slave child.As Comic Book points out, that could be the jumping off point for Johnson’s new trilogy. It’s possible that that boy, a grown-up version of him anyway, could be the focus of the next trilogy. It would be a really cool way to set up the future of Star Wars. Abrams’s Episode IX finishes the story of Rey, Poe, the Resistance and the First Order. Then, the next trilogy, whether it begins with Episode X or not, comes from the seed planted in The Last Jedi. Finn and Rose inspired this young Force-sensitive boy to be the hero in the next generation. All I know is, after The Last Jedi, I want more Rian Johnson Star Wars.Finally, let’s end with something fun. It’s no secret that Rey’s battle with Kylo in The Force Awakens left him scarred. As we saw in The Last Jedi, that really is all the physical damage it did to him. That wasn’t always the plan. Games Radar found a photo from the upcoming book, The Art of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. It depicts a very different look for Kylo Ren after his battle with Rey.“KYLO REN WITH CAPE VERSION 07” by Zonjić, (Photo via GamesRadar, from The Art of Star Wars: The Last Jedi by Phil Szostak)Yes, he was originally going to be bald. I never thought I’d be so happy to see that Adam Driver’s long flowing locks were left in Star Wars. Although, this would have made that awkward shirtless scene even funnier.last_img read more

Guardiola plots £100m bid for Chelsea star Eden Hazard
