Attawapiskat Chief takes to social media to warn of 5 more suicide

first_imgWe are grateful for the well wishes for Attawapiskat from around the world as the numbers keep climbing. 5 more children yesterday evening— Bruce Shisheesh (@BruceShisheesh) April 16, 2016It has been a week since the community 700 kilometres northwest of Thunder Bay declared due to a rash of suicide attempts by children, youth and elders in the community.In an interview Friday night at a social which was planned by Shisheesh himself, the chief told APTN the community has been overwhelmed with everything.“We’re trying to stay focused and we’re trying to stay positive,” said Shisheesh.The weekend began with a candle light vigil, where about 200 community members gathered at the church and walked around the community, singing and praying along the way.Two years ago Georgina Wesley’s 14-year old son attempted suicide. Her family joined the vigil to support the community.  Wesley said she feels for the families and knows what they’re going through. Wesley wants the children and youth to know people care.“There’s always somebody there to listen, they will be there and hopefully that help comes soon” she said.On Saturday, approximately 40 youth gathered at the community centre, tasked with setting up a youth committee.Sky Koostachin, 21, said the crisis affects everyone in the community and that is why she’s stepping in to offer her help.“I know the responsibilities of the youth committee and I am willing to help drive it to success,” said Koostachin. She said a youth drop-in centre will be a top priority for the committee.Members of the Attawapiskat First Nation march through the community.

He said the crisis has been a wake-up call.“Some of these kids are close to the age of my kids,” said Sutherland. “I have two boys, five and six, and I started thinking is this how my boys are going to be when they reach their age.”The community is now waiting for a visit from the riding’s member of Parliament Charlie Angus and the Minister of Aboriginal Affairs Carolyn Bennett.Shisheesh would also like the see Minister of Health Jane Philpott.https://twitter.com/BruceShisheesh/status/721351791489781764“We’re looking for commitment because Attawapiskat is lacking resources to help our young people and that’s why we need the federal government to get on board, the provincial government did their part,” said Shisheesh.afrancis@aptn.ca (The community of Attawapiskat is still dealing with young people threatening to take their own lives.

Climate change tops Bans talks with officials from US Japan

Mr. Ban wrapped up a visit to Washington, D.C., today, where he met with US Energy Secretary Steven Chu to discuss international cooperation to deal with climate change, including mitigation efforts in developed countries and greater collaboration with poorer nations.Yesterday, the Secretary-General held talks with Vice-President Joseph Biden, conferring on Pakistan, including the human rights situation in the South Asian nation; Afghanistan; Sudan; Sri Lanka, Myanmar; the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK); and global warming.The two men also discussed US financial support for the United Nations, “a topic on which the Vice-President was supportive,” UN spokesperson Farhan Haq told reporters.While in the US capital, Mr. Ban attended a meeting hosted by Senate Majority Whip Richard Durbin, which drew a bi-partisan group of senators. At the event, he spoke of the need for US leadership on climate change, and topics discussed ranged from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) to Sudan’s war-torn Darfur region to Iran.Also yesterday, the Secretary-General discussed both the situation on the Korean peninsula following DPRK’s recent nuclear test, as well as climate change, over the telephone with Japanese Prime Minister Taro Aso.During their conversation, Mr. Ban re-affirmed his conviction of the need to resume dialogue, including the Six-Party Talks, which involve China, DPRK, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Russia and the US.“He expressed the UN’s readiness to provide any assistance required,” Mr. Haq said.On climate change, the Secretary-General thanked the Japanese leader for his country’s strong commitment to tackling the problem, demonstrated through its domestic actions and its support for reaching an effective, inclusive and global successor pact to the Kyoto Protocol in Copenhagen, Denmark, this December.“The Secretary-General stressed the importance of showing leadership by setting an ambitious mid-term emissions reduction target for his country for 2020,” the spokesperson said. “He further underlined the importance of this being in line with the targets, which the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has said are necessary to avoid potentially catastrophic consequences from climate change.”Japan has said that it will announce its mid-term emissions reduction targets shortly.“The Secretary-General welcomes Japan’s leading role in setting an ambitious domestic target, as it could well influence the targets set by other countries and generate critically needed positive momentum in the UN climate change talks,” the latest round of which is under way in Bonn, Germany, Mr. Haq said. 5 June 2009Climate change figured prominently in Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s recent talks with senior officials from the United States and Japan, his spokesperson announced today. read more

Millionaire businessman flown to hospital after coming off motorbike at highspeed racing

first_imgSomething happened out of sight and there was a big puff of smokephotographer Danny Lawson A millionaire businessman who was competing in a high-speed racing event has been airlifted to hospital after coming off his motorbike.Zef Eisenberg had been riding the Madmax turbine, a gas turbine engine motorcycle, at the Straightliners “Top Speed” event at Elvington airfield in North Yorkshire.Competing in the omega class, the businessman, who founded the sports nutritional product company Maximuscle, came off the high-powered machine during his timed track run at around 2pm on Sunday.A spokeswoman for the Madmax race team, owned by Mr Eisenberg, said he has “had an accident racing” and is understood to have suffered a suspected broken pelvis. Zef Eisenberg is airlifted to hospital after the crash Mr Duckworth, a former motorcycle racer, said some racers had hit more than 250mph, with records also set by some unusual vehicles.”We have had a garden shed that has done 95mph, that is what it is about – people doing different things. We have had a supermarket trolley doing 79mph.”We have had a mono-wheel doing 64mph – all new world records,” he said.Part of the Guernsey-based Maxicorp group, the Madmax race team website states they are “most known for its dedication to racing and building turbine-powered motorbikes for extreme speed”.It continues: “Madmax racing holds numerous Guinness, world, British and local records.”A spokesman for Yorkshire Ambulance Service said they were called to Elvington airfield at 2.08pm to reports a man had come off a motorbike at the event.”He was taken by Yorkshire Air Ambulance to Leeds General Infirmary,” he said.

Ruth Davidson urges Conservatives to make NHS funding a higher priority than

Ms Davidson warned of the burdens being imposed on the NHS by an ageing population, new drugs and technology. She cited the Darzi review, which concluded last month that the English NHS needs £50 billion more by 2030. Although health is devolved, the Barnett formula means any extra spending by Tory ministers on the English health service would result in more money being allocated to the SNP government in Edinburgh.Official figures published on Tuesday showed a record one in four Scottish NHS patients waited longer for treatment than the 12-week guarantee enshrined in law by the SNP.The statistics disclosed that nearly 17,000 patients due to receive planned inpatient or day case treatment waited longer than the Scottish Government target in the first three months of the year, the biggest breach of the standard since it was introduced in 2012.Shona Robison, the beleaguered Scottish Health Minister, again blamed severe winter weather brought by the so-called ‘Beast from the East’.But opposition parties said the guarantee was “not worth the paper it was written on” and described the SNP’s stewardship of the NHS as “shambolic”.Cancer Research UK criticised figures showing that around one in five patients are forced to wait longer than six weeks for a diagnostic test. As of the end of March this year, more than 17,000 people were waiting longer. Ruth Davidson has called on the Conservatives to shelve their traditional priority of cutting taxes and use any spare money in the public purse to increase spending on the struggling NHS.The Scottish Tory leader said the spiralling demands being placed on the health service across the UK means it is at a “tipping point” and substantial extra funding needs to be found to sustain it in the longer term.Amid intense criticism of the SNP over the latest waiting times figures in Scotland, she argued that the UK Government had to find more money or risk public faith in Britain’s “social contract” completely collapsing.Ms Davidson praised the Tories’ record of cutting income tax bills, by increasing the personal allowance and higher rate tax threshold, but argued that health spending must be prioritised in future if there is a choice between the two.Her intervention in a speech at Glasgow University came as the Telegraph publishes a series this week exploring the state of the NHS as it approaches its 70th anniversary later this summer. Shona Robison blamed the Beast from the EastCredit:Corbis Theresa May is expected to mark the milestone after announcing extra funding, She is understood to support the view that people would accept tax rises for the NHS if the money was used wisely. One in four patients missed the 12-week treatment time targetCredit:PA Her speech came as official figures showed only 75.9 per cent of patients were seen within the SNP’s treatment time guarantee in the first three months of the year. This proportion dropped to just 56 per cent in NHS Forth Valley.Ms Robison said: “This period covered a challenging winter for the NHS and severe weather in early March which caused disruption that took hospitals time to recover from.“So it is testament to the hard work and dedication of staff that the average wait for patients receiving treatment within the treatment time guarantee was eight weeks.”But Labour argued that the Beast from the East lasted a matter of days, starting on February 26, with forecasters stating that conditions were easing by March 2. The party noted that the treatment time guarantee has now been broken 134,804 times.Anas Sarwar, the party’s health spokesman, said: “No one will buy Shona Robision’s attempts to hide behind a week of extreme weather to explain poor performance for three months.”Gregor McNie, Cancer Research UK’s head of external affairs, said it was “concerning that so many people are waiting too long for tests that might tell someone if they have cancer” and blamed diagnostic staff shortages. Referring to its 70th anniversary, the Scottish Tory leader said she supports finding “substantial extra funding across the whole of the UK” to put the NHS on a “solid footing for the long term”.Addressing how she thinks the money should be found, Ms Davidson said the UK Government had “honoured its promise” to reduce the tax burden on working families.She said: “Raising the income tax threshold has reduced taxes for millions of UK workers and has taken thousands out of taxation altogether. But the UK Government has a choice to make.“And, if that choice is between extra spending on the NHS or introducing further tax breaks beyond those already promised, I choose the NHS.”The Tories have pledged to raise the income tax personal allowance to £12,000 and the higher rate threshold to £50,000 by April 2020. The latter promise does not apply in Scotland as this is now set by SNP ministers.Gillian Martin, an SNP MSP, said: “Ruth Davidson ironically makes a very strong case for how the UK is simply not working for Scotland – whether it comes to their damaging approach to Brexit, immigration, or austerity, the UK Government are actively harming jobs, public services and living standards in Scotland.” nhs shona robison Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Haver Boecker demonstrates innovative TyRail quick tensioning system

first_imgAs part of a range of new product launches at the recent CONEXPO show in Las Vegas, Haver & Boecker gave a live demonstration of its Ty-Rail™ quick-tensioning system. The patented Ty-Rail system solves an age-old problem of time intensive screen media change-outs. Replacing tension rails is typically time consuming and requires removing and replacing many pieces of hardware per screen section. Washers or bolts are often dropped or lost in the process, which adds to downtime and parts costs. The Ty-Rail system provides a fast return on investment, and cuts screen change-out time in half.“We continue to lead the aggregates and mining industries in innovation that’s focused on improving efficiency. Our engineers’ invention of the Ty-Rail system solves the long-time problem of lost parts and difficult, time-consuming screen panel change-outs,” said Karen Thompson, Haver & Boecker Canada President. “Our customers will undoubtedly experience increased uptime and, as a result, increased profits by using this revolutionary tension rail system.” The system was developed and designed by a team of engineers led by Haver & Boecker Vice president of Engineering and Technology, Dieter Takev.“We’re continually looking for ways to minimise the challenges mines and quarries face,” Takev said. “Our team spent countless hours brainstorming and discussing some of the biggest issues we saw during our many site visits and heard about in discussions with customers. After nearly two years of design, development and testing, Ty-Rail is ready to serve and improve our customers’ operations.”Each Ty-Rail package includes two tension rails, eight angle boxes and eight bolts; all the hardware required to change one screen section. Once installed, each rail becomes a singular, removable piece since the bolts remain attached to the rail, and the angle boxes remain attached to the vibrating screen. To remove the tension rails, an operator simply loosens the bolts on each, shifts the angle boxes up, and lifts the rail and bolts out as one piece. This reduces screen media change-out times by about 50%. Additionally, the innovation can take the task of changing tensioned screen media panels from two people down to one.“For decades, our Tyler brand has been leading the way in innovative processing technology and quality,” Thompson said. “Productivity plays a significant role in production, which is why we developed the Ty-Rail system: to provide our partners in the mining and aggregate industries with a method to simplify tension rail change-outs. Now, producers can drastically reduce downtime and, therefore, increase their production and profits and achieve better ROI.”The system is designed specifically for Haver & Boecker’s Tyler brand of vibrating screens and is now standard on all new F-Class and T-Class machines. Producers can also refurbish older Tyler vibrating screens and add the Ty-Rail system.last_img read more

Cancer de la prostate un nouveau médicament mis sur le marché

first_imgCancer de la prostate : un nouveau médicament mis sur le marchéÉtats-Unis – La Food and drug administration vient d’autoriser la mise sur le marché de Jevtana, l’anticancéreux de Sanofi-Aventis.Si aujourd’hui, les boursicoteurs sont en émoi devant le succès du groupe, ce sont surtout les patients atteints d’un cancer de la prostate qui ont matière à se réjouir, voyant là un nouvel espoir de traitement. En effet, le Jevtana réduit significativement les risques de décès pour la forme la plus avancée de la maladie. “Ce médicament comble un besoin thérapeutique important”, affirme le docteur Oliver Sartor, qui a initié les recherches pour l’Amérique du Nord. Jusque là, les réponses médicales étaient malheureusement limitées.L’autorisation porte sur une utilisation du Jevtana pour un profil de patient très précis. Celui-ci doit être atteint d’un cancer de la prostate métastatique hormono-résistant traité antérieurement par une chimiothérapie à base de docétaxel. De plus, le Jevtana doit être délivré sous forme injectable, en association avec de la prednisone.  Le 18 juin 2010 à 10:59 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Foreclosures in county down 29

first_imgThe number of Clark County homes in foreclosure fell dramatically in March, revealing a more compassionate side of the mortgage industry.March2011 …… 2722010 …… 3342009 ….. 6052008 ….. 2342007 ….. 70Source: RealtyTrac Inc.Some say the sector’s new willingness to help borrowers with home-loan modifications led to the 29.2 percent one-month drop in local foreclosures, as reported by California-based RealtyTrac on Wednesday. In Clark County, there were 272 houses in some stage of foreclosure in March, down from February’s 384 foreclosures and 18.6 percent less than March 2010. Others say banks are slower to foreclose because they don’t want to own still more properties when it is taking longer now to sell off houses in distress, given the smaller pool of qualified buyers. Shrinking demand has caused lenders to work longer with existing homeowners in Clark County, which ranked third-highest out of Washington’s 39 counties for its rate of foreclosure.Only Pierce and Snohomish counties ranked worse than Clark County, where one out of every 601 homes was in foreclosure in March. In February, one of every 426 houses was in some stage of foreclosure in Clark County, which earned it the No. 2 spot.Lenders “are making a greater effort to try to modify these loans,” said Scott Anthony, a broker in charge of the real estate owned division of Windermere Real Estate Stellar Group in Vancouver.Many of the mortgage giants started beefing up efforts to help struggling homeowners last fall, after claims surfaced that banks had mishandled thousands of foreclosures nationwide with rubber-stamp “robo signing.” The revelation launched investigations by all 50 state attorneys general, causing banks to slow down the process.last_img read more

Tourist attacked robbed while shopping at NE MiamiDade WalMart

first_imgNORTHEAST MIAMI-DADE, Fla. (WSVN) — A tourist visiting a South Florida discount store is speaking out after he was brutally beaten during a shopping trip.Igor Dimitiryenko was shopping at a Wal-Mart when he said he suddenly became a robbery victim. “It was just like, ‘Boom,’” he said. “They stole about $200. That’s my money, and my phone is very expensive.”He was on vacation from Massachusetts and needed to pick something up from the store along Northeast 164th Street and 14th Avenue, just after midnight, early Thursday morning. Dimitiryenko said the store has late hours, and he said he didn’t want to deal with the crowd.When it began to rain, he said he waited under an covered area. That’s when he said a man asked him to use his cellphone and then attacked. “I come to this place, and I see what’s happening to him,” said Helen, the victim’s friend, “I said, ‘Listen, you need to go to the police and ambulance,’ because he needed to check his head.’”The victim’s friend then took him to the North Miami Beach Police Department. However, Dimitiryenko was still dazed about the details after the attack. “I’m trying to get my phone back, but I felt like I’m all in a dream,” he said. “Dizziness. They hit me a couple more times.”That’s when Miami-Dade Fire Rescue arrived to the department, just before noon on Thursday, to check on the victim. Miami-Dade Police arrived shortly after to take the report since the incident occurred in their jurisdiction.Dimitiryenko told 7News that he can’t recall what he was hit with. “Their fists, but the first time, I don’t know because it was from the side,” he said. “I just stay and ‘Boof.’” After officials took down their report, Dimitiryenko was taken on a stretcher to the hospital woozy and with his eye swollen shut. He said he hopes whoever attacked and robbed him gets caught.Miami-Dade PD is now investigating this case.If you know who was behind this robbery, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.

In a blog post, the company said the new feature is available on the latest version of Skype.To accommodate more users, Skype has made a few tweaks to how calls will work.”We added a notification to replace the ringing as the default, allowing every member of the group to receive a quick ping to join the call,” Skype said. “These notifications are a simple, unobtrusive way to get your calls and meetings (be it between family, friends, podcast guests, or co-workers) started.”Skype said individual members can ring into the call session or, if the group is less than 25 people, you can ring the entire group at once. Microsoft tested the larger call sessions last month with its Insider Preview group.

South Carolina capital website had a security flaw that exposed passwords

first_img Tags Politics Security Share your voice The South Carolina State House in Columbia. Getty Images One bad search on the government website for South Carolina’s capital city could’ve exposed an entire database.The city of Columbia site had a security flaw in its search tool, according to independent security researcher Arif Khan. The flaw let anyone view passwords for the website’s database and email protocol servers, creating a massive potential for abuse, Khan said on Thursday. The vulnerability made it possible for someone to “pull sensitive data out of the Columbia city government’s database,” Khan said. With access to the email protocol servers, an attacker could’ve also created spoof emails that looked like they’d come from the city government.The flaw involved a misconfiguration of the site’s search function. If you searched for a term that couldn’t be found in the site’s database, the site would inadvertently serve up an error page meant only for administrators. I was able to reproduce the security flaw through the site’s search function multiple times, including by searching on my own name and phrases like “Bazinga.” The vulnerability was fixed after CNET reached out to city officials about the issue. The Columbia city government didn’t respond to a request for comment, but a representative confirmed that it did receive the inquiry.Khan said he contacted city officials in September but never heard back from them. He reached out again in October, he said, and another security researcher also publicly contacted the city government in November on Twitter.Cybercriminals often target city governments because they serve an important function and have access to sensitive information. Last November, the Justice Department brought charges against two Iranian hackers who caused more than $30 million in damages through ransomware attacks on cities like Newark, New Jersey, Atlanta and San Diego. At the end of March, New York’s capital announced it was also hit with a hack. It’s not clear if any malicious actors found the vulnerability on the Columbia government’s website, but the exposure had the potential to cause a lot of harm. screen-shot-2019-04-25-at-9-19-13-amThe vulnerability displayed passwords for databases and email servers.

first_imgAfter Nestle India said last week that its instant noodles had cleared sample tests at the court-designated labs, stock prices of the Maggi-maker have gone up by over 5% in the past few trading sessions on expectations that the popular noodles will be sold in the markets soon.State governments in Karnataka and Gujarat have lifted the ban on sale of Maggi noodles, following the announcement by Nestle India that the Bombay High Court mandated labs haven’t found harmful levels of lead and presence of monosodium glutamate (MSG).Further, the company on Tuesday said that it would resume manufacturing noodles “as soon as possible”.Supported by raising hopes on Maggi noodles’ return to the shelves, Nestle India shares ended 0.8 higher at Rs 6,533 on Tuesday on the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) despite weakness in the broader markets.So, is this the right time to buy the Nestle India stock?While most of the analysts have turned positive on the stock, a few caution about jumping into the stock.Japanese brokerage Nomura sees Maggi noodles returning to the shelves soon and maintains a buy rating on the stock.”There would be a short-term impact on sales and profitability of the company for a few quarters, but the company should be able to fix the product and bring it back to the market,” moneycontrol.com quoted Nomura as saying.Nomura has a target price of Rs 6,950 for the Nestle India stock.ICICIdirect.com suggests investors to buy the stock at current levels and it forecasts the stock price to touch Rs 7,240.In contrast, Religare recommends selling the stock at current prices, citing its “rich valuation”. It expects the stock to fall to Rs 5,500.last_img read more

Faith Walk 2014 1 Day 14 Pastors 14 Street Corners In Forest

first_imgLocal religious and community leaders took it to the streets, June 7, of Northwest Baltimore for Faith Walk 2014. Beginning at the Forest Park Senior Center on Liberty Heights Avenue, they headed south and then returned for a street revival at their starting point.In one hour, 14 pastors led prayer on 14 street corners in the Forest Park neighborhood. Along the way, members of the Christian faith community and community leaders talked with area residents about crime, drug and alcohol addiction, education and unemployment, as well as offered prayer and calls to salvation.“We just needed to take a stand against crime, unemployment, poverty, and drug activity,” said the Rev. Steve Turner, pastor of Destiny Changers Deliverance Center, which holds services at the senior center every Sunday at 4 p.m. A lifetime resident of Northwest Baltimore known for his music ministry throughout the city, Rev. Turner moved his church from Glen Burnie to Forest Park last summer after sensing a call from God to plant his church in the Forest Park community. “We are praying for God’s glory and peace to fall on this community,” he said.The interdenominational street service included pastors from the Northwest community, psalmists and praise dancers. Employers with current job openings will have an opportunity to announce jobs and meet with potential candidates during the program. Neighborhood business owners are encouraged to come and promote their businesses.Participating congregations included: Destiny Changers Deliverance Center, Kingdom Restoration Center, Out of the Box Ministries, Breakthrough Ministries, Holy Temple Church, Christ-Like Apostolic Church, and New Solid Rock Fellowship.Rev. Turner offered the invitation to all to “accept the challenge and walk with us,” he said.For more information on future endeavors or on the church, please contact Rev. Steve Turner at 855-393-3232 (toll-free) or at destinychangersdeliverancecenter@aol.com, on Twitter @DestinyChangers, and on Facebook.last_img read more

Alienware says Steam Machine will be its least profitable system

first_imgRemember Steam Machines? It’s been a while. Ever since Valve caved (or listened to feedback, depending on how you view it) and added traditional buttons to its non-traditional gamepad, all has been relatively quiet on the Steam Machine front. Now, Alienware has broken that silence — for better or worse — to say that it predicts the Steam Machine will be its least profitable system ever.Speaking to The Wall Street Journal, general manager of Alienware Frank Azor said that the Steam Machine’s plight is going to be “very challenging,” and that it “will absolutely be the least profitable system we ever sell.” Of course, the wording of that implies that Alienware expects the Steam Machine to still be profitable — and any amount of profit is better than not profitable. This makes sense, unfortunately, as the Steam Machine console makers don’t get royalties from game sales like Sony or Microsoft. Furthermore, the way Valve has set up the Steam Machine market is very similar to the Android market; everything is open, but everything is fragmented.Steam Machines will come in wildly different specs, with many different pricing structures. As everyone who hasn’t pledged unwavering fealty to Valve has said, the Steam Machines are basically just a regular PC, but marketed as a living room gaming console. Considering Steam OS has been released, you can make your own Steam Machine right now, and the only difference will be that you likely won’t have a unique, fancy Steam Machine case, and you won’t have the controller. It’ll cost about as much as an official Steam Machine as well.It’s worth noting that Alienware’s statement doesn’t mean it thinks the Steam Machine will fail — again, profit is success, not failure. The statement coming from a company that is actually producing its own Steam Machine, does, perhaps, display an air of uncertainty surrounding Valve’s venture.Expect to hear more about the Steam Machine at E3 next month.last_img read more
