Photos of missing mother possibly ended up in burn pile police told

first_imgWillow FiddlerAPTN NewsLilly Southwind had a gut feeling not to hand over the pictures of her mom to police.Viola Panacheese had been missing for three days when she reported her missing 25 years ago to the Ontario Provincial Police in Sioux Lookout, Ont.“I gave them reluctantly, cause they didn’t have a current picture of her to post, to share in hopes of finding her,” Lilly said at Day 2 of the Thunder Bay public hearings of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.“I told them I want them back right away.”Years passed and Viola is still missing. So are the photos.Lilly kept on police to return the photos and would be shocked when she was finally told what happened to them.“He said, ‘we don’t have your mothers pictures. We don’t have them. Her file was lost,’” said Lilly. She was told it was possible the file ended up in the “burn pile” when the detachment moved into a new building.“I just sat there, I was in shock. My first thought was so when was it lost? How long has it been lost? All that time when things could’ve been done or people could’ve been interviewed again, all that time is gone,” said Lilly.Lilly told the inquiry more needs to be done to help families of missing persons.“I don’t want any family to ever go through that frustration, that angry, that anguish. I feel my family was wronged,” she said.last_img read more

UN expert warns of increasing restrictions on free speech in Republic of

17 May 2010Full respect for human rights in the Republic of Korea, particularly the right to freedom of opinion and expression, is diminishing, as courts are more restrictive in their interpretation and implementation of existing laws, said an independent United Nations expert. “For the Republic of Korea to be a leader internationally, it must show its commitment to a truly democratic model of governance with full respect for human rights,” Frank la Rue, Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the rights to freedom of opinion and expression, said in a statement issued today following an official visit to the country.Korean courts have played an important role in upholding the right to freedom of expression, particularly since the restoration in 1987 of a multi-party political system, but “the increasing number of prosecutions creates a chilling effect in respect of the exercise of the right to freedom of expression, regardless of the outcomes of the decisions of the courts.”In the report following his 12-day country visit, Mr. la Rue noted six main areas of concern, including restrictions on regulations of freedom of expression on the Internet, freedom of assembly, freedom of expression prior to elections, the National Security Act, public broadcasting, the National Human Rights Commission of Korea, and the right to freedom of opinion and expression of public officials. Among his specific recommendations, the independent expert urged the Government to remove the crime of defamation from its Criminal Code, and promote a culture of tolerance regarding criticism.He also drew attention to the rights of Government officials, including teachers, to express their opinions both individually and collectively, and stressed that “the principle of diversity and pluralism is essential in any public broadcasting system.” The Special Rapporteur will submit a final report on his visit to the Human Rights Council in Geneva next year.Mr. la Rue said that the report was compiled despite being “deeply disappointed” that he could not meet with President Lee Myung-bak, Prime Minister Chung Un Chan or any of the ministers. “Despite my requests, I was unable to meet with the Prosecutor-General nor members of the National Intelligence Service, despite the fact that I came to the country on an official invitation,” said the expert, who was also unable to meet collectively with members of the National Human Rights Commission.Adding that he hopes to continue to engage constructively and openly with the Government, Mr. la Rue said that “Human rights transcend political ideologies, and its respect should constitute a common aspiration for all individuals in Republic of Korea.” read more

UNbacked tribunal orders Russia to release Greenpeace protest ship and crew

The United Nations-backed International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea today ordered that Russia release the Greenpeace ship and its crew that it seized in September following a protest over oil drilling off its coast, once the Netherlands posts a bond of 3.6 million euros.The Arctic Sunrise – an icebreaker operated by the environmental group and which flies the flag of the Netherlands – was boarded by Russian officials on 19 September, brought to the port of Murmansk Oblast and detained.Last month, the Netherlands instituted arbitral proceedings against Russia under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, claiming that that the arrest and detention of the vessel and its crew by Russia violated the treaty. It also requested that the Tribunal, based in the German city of Hamburg, prescribe provisional measures pending the arbitral proceedings. By a vote of 19 to 2, the Tribunal’s judges today ordered that, pending arbitration, Russia “shall immediately release the vessel Arctic Sunrise and all persons who have been detained, upon the posting of a bond or other financial security by the Netherlands which shall be in the amount of 3,600,000 euros…”The Arctic Sunrise was used by Greenpeace International, a non-governmental organization, to stage a protest against the offshore ice-resistant fixed platform ‘Prirazlomnaya’ in the Barents Sea. read more

On World Diabetes Day Ban underscores threat of noncommunicable diseases

“Let us make World Diabetes Day meaningful by committing to practicing healthy living ourselves and making it possible for others to do the same,” Mr. Ban stated in his message for the Day, which is observed annually on 14 November.Approximately 350 million people are currently living with diabetes, and the number is expected to double between 2005 and 2030, according to projections by the UN World Health Organization (WHO).Diabetes – which occurs when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin, or when the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces – has become one of the major causes of premature illness and death in most countries, mainly through the increased risk of cardiovascular disease.Mr. Ban called on governments as well as the private sector and civil society to unite in producing and promoting more food products consistent with a healthy diet that are affordable, accessible and available to all.“A holistic approach to human health and the environment can serve to preserve biodiversity, encourage alternative forms of transportation, and boost the transition to a low-carbon economy,” he stressed.This year, World Diabetes Day focuses on healthy eating as an important component of both preventing and treating diabetes. Healthy eating and regular exercise can prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes and are important in managing all types of diabetes, the Secretary-General said.Often misunderstood as a disease associated with affluent lifestyles, diabetes is a growing problem in developing countries. Recognizing that non-communicable diseases constitute one of the major challenges for development in the 21st century, the United Nations convened a high-level meeting on the issue in 2011, during which governments committed to developing national policies for diabetes prevention, treatment and care.That commitment was reaffirmed two years later at the World Health Assembly, which set a target to stop the rise in obesity and diabetes by 2025. A second high-level UN meeting earlier this year recognized a marked increase in the number of countries with policies on non-communicable diseases.“This is welcome progress but governments must step up their response, including by protecting people against risk factors such as unhealthy diet and physical inactivity,” the Secretary-General said.“Fortunately, there are many cost-effective and feasible ways to address diabetes and other non-communicable diseases. By monitoring blood pressure, improving diet and engaging in exercise, people can significantly cut their risk and manage their symptoms,” he added.Started by WHO and the International Diabetes Federation, the Day is celebrated on 14 November to mark the birthday of Frederick Banting who, along with Charles Best, was instrumental in the discovery of insulin in 1922, a life-saving treatment for diabetes patients. read more

SIPTU encourages members to accept Croke Park agreement

first_imgIRELANDS’S LARGEST UNION SIPTU, has today voted to encourage its members to accept the terms of the new Croke Park agreement.At a meeting of the union’s national executive committee, representatives voted to decide whether they would urge its more than 200,000 members to accept or reject the proposals which will see cuts to public sector pay and allowances.In a statement today, the union said that the proposals on the table were the result of “unprecedentedly difficult negotiations” and that it believed that the best way to protect workers’ interests is “through a single centralised agreement, prohibiting compulsory redundancies, limiting redeployment and restricting outsourcing”.“Otherwise each group, grade and category, irrespective of how strong they believe themselves to be, is vulnerable to being isolated and attacked in the desperate quest for ‘savings’”, it said.SIPTU said the proposals were “the best that could be obtained through negotiation” and that voting no would not make the problem go away.Ultimately, the real danger is that public service workers could end up with the worst of both worlds, ie legislated pay cuts on one hand and no agreement on the other. Then workers would suffer the cuts but they would have no protection against compulsory redundancy, redeployment or outsourcing. This in turn would open the way for one group after the other to be isolated and attacked, potentially forfeiting far more than what is envisaged in the LRC proposals.The union urged its members to consider the proposals carefully and decide whether they can go along with them for the period envisaged with the objective of recovering lost ground later, or whether they have no alternative but to make a stand now.The outcome will be decided by a majority vote in the secret ballot to be conducted over the next four weeks.If the proposal is accepted by members, the union said that it will not participate in any negotiation that would entail a further diminution of pay and terms of employment.IMPACT has also encouraged its members to accept the deal while other unions like the The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation (INMO), the Irish Medical Organisation (IMO), the Civil Public and Services Union (CPSU) and Unite remain in opposition to the terms proposed.Related: Ireland’s largest union to decide on Croke Park II today>More: Four unions launch joint No campaign to Croke Park 2>last_img read more

Dublin Airport is getting four new multistorey office buildings

first_img Short URL How the offices will look. Image: Dublin Airport Dublin Airport is getting four new multi-storey office buildings It is estimated that approximately 400 jobs could be created during the construction phase. Image: Dublin Airport 31 Comments Share86 Tweet Email7 DUBLIN AIRPORT WILL get 42,000 square metres of new office space after securing planning permission for four new office blocks.DAA, which runs the airport, applied for permission to demolish buildings on the site to the north of Terminal 2, surrounding the former Aer Lingus Head Office building. That building has been taken over by ESB International in recent months.The proposal, which An Bord Pleanala approved last week by a 2 to 1 majority, envisages the building of four six- and seven-storey office buildings on the site, with a 742-space multi-storey car park and a pavilion cafe and a raised pedestrian link from the central courtyard to the Terminal 2 multi-storey car.It is estimated that a number of jobs could be created during the construction phase with a peak number of 400 workers on site. Once built, the offices are expected to house 2,838 direct employees. DAA says the plan has the potential to “contribute €1.3 billion annually to national output”.The plan was approved after an objection by the Irish Airline Pilots Association to the original granting of permission by Fingal County Council.Work is expected to begin on the first two buildings, comprising around half the floor space, and the public space this summer, with completion planned for next year. A new hotel near Terminal 2, which would be the fourth-largest in Ireland, is in the tendering stages and is set to open its doors in 2019.Read: Landlords will have to provide an oven, fridge and microwave under new rulescenter_img How the offices will look.

Alex Perry to quit

Quit smoking product maker Nicabate has launched a Pledge to Quit page on facebook with Perry as the ambassador so people can join in and pledge to quit smoking together on World No Tobacco Day. So far more than 2000 Australian smokers are planning to quit next week alongside Perry.Perry told Sydney Morning Herald that smoking goes hand-and-hand with the fashion industry.“I think the fashion industry is known for smoking, if that makes sense,” Perry said.“It’s a glass of champagne and a cigarette, and it’s all fabulous darling, but it actually isn’t, and that’s why I want to lead a healthier life.” Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Coliloquy propose les premiers livres numériques dont vous êtes le héros

first_imgColiloquy propose les premiers livres numériques “dont vous êtes le héros”Si, vous aussi, vous avez sauté de page en page dans « les livres dont vous êtes le héros », il est temps de découvrir les premiers “ebook dont vous êtes le héros”, créés par Coliloquy. Un livre dont vous être le héros consistait en une histoire interactive où il fallait suivre les liens entre les pages. Avec des mots comme “interaction” et “liens”, comment ne pas imaginer une version numérique de ces aventures ?La start-up Coliloquy doit être composée de nostalgiques de ces livres. Elle va proposer exclusivement des ebooks dont vous êtes le héros, sur le Kindle d’Amazon. Contrairement aux livres papiers, ils seront bien plus simples à créer, et surtout il y aura de nouvelles possibilités. Il n’y aura plus des centaines de pages à tourner, même si, bien entendu, les habitués seront tristes de ne pas retrouver la bonne vielle sensation de feuilleter sans cesse des centaines de pages. Mais, les auteurs, pourraient également être tenus au courant des choix des lecteurs, et adapter leurs suites. Les choix pourraient d’ailleurs être beaucoup plus libres, avec un auteur en arrière-boutique pour construire le livre en fonction des réponses. Certains regretteront également l’automatisation des systèmes de caractéristiques, qui requéraient autrefois de tout noter avec son crayon de papier. Il faudra sans doute que les auteurs fassent attention à bien se démarquer du jeu vidéo, sans quoi le genre perdrait beaucoup de son intérêt.L’interactivité est définitivement un des éléments qui pourraient faire le succès des ebooks et le renouveau de la lecture, mais dans ce domaine tout reste à faire. Un autre intérêt de l’ebook a été récemment exploité par Apple, avec ses manuels scolaires numériques. Coliloquy propose déjà des titres comme “Getting Dumped”  (Se faire larguer) ou Arcania (une aventure de fantasy). Tout est en anglais, mais on peut supposer sans trop prendre de risque que d’autres initiatives de ce genre vont suivre.À quand de telles versions des classiques “Défis fantastiques” ou “Loup Solitaire” ? Pour mémoire, le genre du livre dont vous êtes le héros avait périclité au cours des années 90, mais un vent plus favorable souffle depuis des rééditions en 2003 des “Défis fantastiques” par l’anglais Wizard Books, et en 2007 par Gallimard en France. Le 28 janvier 2012 à 09:45 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Slack reportedly expects to reveal listing prospectus this week

first_img Turo Apple AirPods with Wireless Charging Case: $155 (save $45) $999 Slack’s IPO, Tesla Model 3 price cut Sprint Sarah Tew/CNET TVs Speakers Mobile Accessories Cameras Laptops Automobiles Smart Speakers & Displays See It I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution. Turo is kind of like Uber meets Airbnb: You borrow someone’s car, but you do all the driving. I’ve used it many times and found it a great alternative to traditional car-rental services — in part because you get to choose exactly the vehicle you want (not just, say, “midsize”) and in part because you can often do pickup and dropoff right outside baggage claim.Between now and Sept. 1, the first 300 people to check out can get $30 off any Turo rental with promo code LDW30. Slack is moving closer to going public. S3studio / Getty Images Messaging startup Slack is expected to take another step toward going public by revealing its prospectus this week, The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.The chat platform, which filed confidential plans to go public with the US Securities and Exchange Commission in February, is expected to make the document available by Friday, sources told the newspaper. The filing will show that Slack’s annual revenue for this year is expected to be $500 million, the newspaper reported.The chat platform was reportedly valued at $7 billion in 2018, according to CNBC, and has more than 10 million daily active users. If all goes as planned, 2019 will be a year of tech IPOs. Silicon Valley companies like Lyft, Pinterest and Zoom have already gone public. Others like Airbnb and Palantir are expected to issue initial public offerings, along with ride-hailing giant Uber.Slack declined to comment on the report. $520 at HP Recently updated to include digital-photo-frame capabilities, the Lenovo Smart Clock brings Google Assistant goodness to your nightstand.

first_img This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now Enroll Now for Free 2 min readcenter_img January 5, 2018 Dippin’ Dots has been around for 30 years, during which time it has expanded internationally, filed for bankruptcy, sold to a new owner and even found itself criticized by former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer on Twitter.But the company, which makes colorful, pellet-shaped, flash-frozen desserts, continues to look toward the horizon. This week, Paducah, Ky.-based Dippin’ Dots announced the launch of a new subsidiary, Dippin’ Dots Cryogenics. With it, the company plans to sell its proprietary technology to businesses in other industries that require cryogenic freezing.Related: How Dippin’ Dots Made the Most of Unexpected Attention From the White House Press SecretaryAlthough many people associate the term with the futuristic concept of preserving human bodies, Dippin’ Dots isn’t planning on lending its tech to corpse-freezers. The company’s patented equipment, when customized, can find applications in the pharmaceutical and agricultural industries, among others.Dippin’ Dots Chief Marketing and Sales Officer Michael Barrette, CEO Scott Fischer, Chief Development Officer Stan Jones and COO Mark Liebel have launched a new business, Dippin’ Dots Cryogenics, LLC.Image credit: Dippin’ DotsProducts made using the process might include probiotics, bacterial cultures and extractions from plants such as aloe vera. These materials will be flash-frozen into circular spheres, just like Dippin’ Dots, which the company says will help manufacturers accurately measure the volumes they produce, increase shelf life and help them be transported more easily.Cryogenics isn’t a new field for Dippin’ Dots; it’s exactly how the frozen treats are made. The inventor of Dippin’ Dots, Curt Jones, was a microbiologist who applied his knowledge of cryogenic processes to making a new kind of ice cream using liquid nitrogen.“The expansion of this concept into these other industries has also led to Dippin’ Dots expanding its services to these segments with our logistics, distribution and shipping containers for cryogenic product that allows our company to expand our global footprint while providing a diversified revenue stream to our portfolio by using our intellectual property that was already being used for our ice cream needs,” Dippin’ Dots CEO Scott Fischer told Entrepreneur in an email. “Overall, we believe this is a pretty cool opportunity.”Related video: This Wellness Company Finally Found Success After Pivoting 4 Times in 7 Yearslast_img read more

Zero tolerance for unethical prison officers Nicolaou says

first_imgUNETHICAL or corrupt prison officers were put on notice on Friday that they would not be allowed to stand in the way of progress and modernisation of the system.Nothing can stop the modernisation of the prisons department, Justice Minister Ionas Nicolaou told the department’s staff during a New Year’s visit.A substantial contribution was made towards prison modernisation in 2018, Nicolaou said, noting that “for the first time, 85 per cent of the budget for the central prisons was used, contributing to better infrastructure, and the implementation of European programmes for guards and prisoners.”Efforts will continue in 2019, he added, with special emphasis on the training and safety of correctional officers, in view of which a phone deactivation system will be installed in prisons by the end of January, while additional security systems for the prevention of the transfer of danger items or addictive substances into prisons will also be installed.However, prisons still face various issues, the minister said, for which the officers themselves are also responsible.According to Nicolaou, some guards are “addicted to taking sick leave, which constitutes a lack of respect towards their co-workers,” adding that “for those who will not be able to get over this ‘addiction’, we will have to cut the cord, one way or another.”Even so, Nicolaou highlighted that in light of the problems faced by prisons in the past, “many of these are steadily being solved and prisons are changing.”Regarding the problem of inappropriate behaviour by correctional officers, the director of the prison department, Anna Aristotelous, said: “We stand by those who perform their duties honourably, but those few who spoil the whole picture, who have become accustomed to favouritism, should know that this will no longer be accepted.”“We are strongly opposed to corruption and we have proven this by arresting and firing a small number of guards,” Aristotelous said, noting that the large majority of guards perform their duties outstandingly. You May LikePlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoGundry MD Total Restore SupplementU.S. Cardiologist: It’s Like a Pressure Wash for Your InsidesGundry MD Total Restore SupplementUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)UndoThree arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
