Skilled immigrant doesnt want welfare but Quebec system makes it attractive

first_imgMONTREAL — Hugo Hernan Ruiz, a 42-year-old systems engineer from Colombia, has a master’s degree in his field and ran the IT department of an oil company in his home country.His French is excellent considering he arrived in Quebec in 2016 with little knowledge of the language. But like many highly educated newcomers to the province, Ruiz has struggled to find work despite being selected as a skilled immigrant by provincial authorities.After failing to find a job, he decided to open his own consulting business to take advantage of his South American contacts. He applied for a provincial program that assists budding entrepreneurs with grants, marketing and training.But he was rejected because the program was for people who were on welfare or who had received Employment Insurance — and he fit neither category.It would become a common refrain, he said, as he tried unsuccessfully to navigate the Quebec bureaucracy.“I think there needs to be a reflection,” Ruiz said over coffee at a strip mall in the Montreal suburb of Laval, where he settled with his wife and two children. “What happens to immigrants who are trying to succeed and who don’t come here to live off the government?”As Quebec Premier Francois Legault moves to reduce immigration in order, he says, to ensure newcomers learn French and find work, Ruiz’s case highlights the obstacles and contradictions facing educated immigrants who are neither poor nor wealthy.Yann Hairaud, head of a Montreal-based immigrant employment centre, said he knows of cases where skilled workers find options closed to them because they aren’t on welfare.“Unfortunately yes,” he said in an interview. “These situations can happen. There is a certain incoherence in some of the rules that exist for newcomers.”Shortly after Ruiz arrived in Quebec, he enrolled in a French-language program to study what’s known as the internet of things — the network of objects that contain electronics and can interact with one another.“I thought that instead of taking French courses, I would take a French-language course in my field, so I would learn both,” he said.He graduated with a vocational certificate last August — but because the government didn’t fully pay for his training, more doors were closed to him. A paid public-sector internship caught his eye, but to get it he had to qualify for a provincial salary subsidy.He was rejected for the subsidy, he explained, because the government hadn’t paid for his training.“I brought all my savings with me (from Colombia) and I prepared financially in order to avoid asking for welfare,” Ruiz said. “I’m not criticizing the Employment Department or the government. But I think the country needs to reflect on whether the immigration system encourages immigrants to go on welfare.”Dominique Anglade, immigration critic for the provincial Liberals, has not heard of immigrants going on welfare to land jobs, but she acknowledged those on social assistance have a certain advantage.Anglade, a former economy minister, said in an interview that “a high percentage” of immigrants fail to complete the necessary training to have their skills recognized in Quebec, in part because of the high costs involved.“When you go on welfare, you do have some support that can help you actually accomplish finding a job and everything else,” she said. She blamed the discrepancy on government departments not working hand in hand.Immigration Department spokesperson Chantal Bouchard, said integration “is obviously a priority” but referred questions about the obstacles facing skilled immigrants to the Employment Department.Employment Department spokesman Vincent Breton did not respond directly to questions about whether people who are not receiving welfare are at a disadvantage when seeking work.“As you know, the Employment Department offers many measures and programs for those who want to integrate into the workforce,” Breton said in an email, adding that each file is analyzed on its individual merits.Hairaud, whose organization CITIM works with about 1,800 immigrants a year, said the Employment Department gives priority to certain groups, including those who are on welfare or unemployment insurance.Quebec seeks out skilled workers, he noted, but they are ineligible for government support programs if they are deemed too successful.“It’s contradictory, the right hand doesn’t know what the left is doing,” Hairaud said.Despite the difficulties, the employment landscape is improving for immigrants, partly due to Quebec’s strong economy. In August 2018, the unemployment rate for immigrants between the ages of 25 and 54 fell to 6.1 per cent after hovering above 10 per cent for much of the previous decade, the Institut du Quebec reported.Ruiz said he’s happy in Canada. His two young children are in school, and he wants to start a new life here. But he questions the value Canada places on the first generation of immigrants.“My experience looking for work has been bizarre,” he said. “What is the life for professionals who come here? Is the first generation of immigrants important to Canada?”Giuseppe Valiante, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Brock historian named German research ambassador

Historian Michael Driedger has added a new title to his many specialties: research ambassador.Driedger has been selected to serve as research ambassador during the 2014-2015 academic year for the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), an organization that promotes research in Germany and abroad using German funds.“I’m really glad. For me, it’s a chance to pay back to the German government and German universities for the kind of support that I’ve received in the past,” says Driedger, who specializes in the history of Dutch and German Mennonites.Driedger joins about 100 researchers across North America who are tasked with encouraging colleagues and students to conduct research in Germany and to apply for the many funding programs available to North American scientists and academics.Driedger himself has had a long research history with Germany, spending a total of six years studying and researching in various places such as Hamburg, Münster, and Freiburg. In 2003-2004, he taught for Brock University in Freiburg, when Brock was still involved in the Canadian Year in Freiburg study-abroad program.The German Academic Exchange Service had funded Driedger’s research on three different occasions in the last 20 years.“German universities are really strong, and German university cities are intellectually and culturally exciting places to be these days,” he says. “The German government continues to invest lots and lots of money and energy to encourage foreign students and scholars from North America and around the world to take advantage of German university life.”On Nov. 6, Driedger and his colleagues from the DAAD office in Toronto will be giving a student information session from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in the International Centre, Room 207. Students and faculty are welcome. This event is part of International Week at Brock.For more information about the German Academic Exchange Service, email Michael Driedger or visit read more

Despite new law Florida will still fall back for end of Daylight

first_imgThe Florida PTA had asked for a veto because more children would go to school in the morning in the dark.The Associated Press contributed to this report.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WSVN/AP) — The “Sunshine Protection Act” aimed to make Daylight Saving Time permanent in Florida, meaning those in the Sunshine State would no longer have to set their clocks back an hour each November.But even though the bill passed the Florida Legislature and was signed by Gov. Rick Scott seven months ago, Floridians will still “fall back” this weekend.That’s because the measure cannot take effect unless Congress changes federal law to allow it. The state would have to be exempt from the Uniform Time Act of 1966; both Hawaii and Arizona have exemptions, though they stay on standard time rather than recognizing Daylight Saving Time.Sen. Marco Rubio introduced two bills in the U.S. Senate to facilitate Florida’s bill: one to exempt the state from the Uniform Time Act, and another that goes one step further by making Daylight Saving Time permanent nationwide.“Last week, Florida’s Legislature overwhelmingly voted for permanent daylight saving time for the state of Florida,” Rubio said when the state’s bill passed in March. “Reflecting the will of the Sunshine State, I proudly introduce these bills that would approve Florida’s will and, if made nationally, would also ensure Florida is not out of sync with the rest of the nation.”Rubio said the time change affects Florida’s agricultural economy by disrupting farmers’ schedules, and says Daylight Saving Time reduces traffic accidents due to greater visibility.Gov. Scott said he supported the move because it would help the state’s tourism industry. He said it would allow residents and visitors to “enjoy everything our beautiful state has to offer later in the day.” last_img read more

Brahmastra stars Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt shoot at a temple in

first_imgRanbir Kapoor, Brahmastra director Ayan Mukerji and Alia BhattTwitterRanbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt have begun shooting for the next schedule of Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra in Varanasi.A few pictures from the set have surfaced on social media. From the background, it seems the pictures were clicked at a temple. Ranbir was in a black sleeveless t-shirt paired with trousers while Alia looked pretty in a white kurta.While nothing much has been revealed regarding the plot of the film, rumours are rife that Ranbir would be seen playing the role of a DJ in the film. Further, he would be unaware of his superpowers until one day he would accidentally find out about it.The fantasy-thriller trilogy also stars megastar Amitabh Bachchan, Akkineni Nagarjuna, Dimple Kapadia and Mouni Roy in pivotal roles. Produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, Brahmastra is the first film of the trilogy. The movie was slated for December 2019 release, however, it has been pushed for the next year as the VFX team needs more time to work on it.Meanwhile, ever since Ranbir and Alia admitted their relationship in public, the two are often spotted together at events or dining with Ranbir’s parents.Speculations regarding their wedding also continue to make news. Earlier this year, there was a rumour that Alia and Ranbir might get married in 2019.

It was said that the two would tie the knot soon after the release of their next ambitious project – Brahmastra.last_img read more

Bikini airline VietJet plans to grab 50 market share raises cap on

first_imgAn airplane of Vietjet Air is seen before a flight at Noi Bai airport in Hanoi, Vietnam, December 15, 2016.Reuters fileVietJet, the six-year-old carrier of Vietnam, that went public this February, has a lot more to it than the occasional bikini stunts it’s known for. The first private carrier of the Southeast country plans, which currently has a 42 percent share of the domestic aviation market, plans to increase it to 50 percent by December this year.At its annual general meeting a few days ago in Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh City, the low-cost carrier set for itself an ambitious target of 53 percent increase in revenues and 36 percent in profit for the current year.In 2016, VietJet logged 27.4 trillion dong (around $1.17 billion) in revenues and 2.4 trillion dong in profit, the Nikkei Asian Review reported, adding that the growth plans would mean 42 trillion dong ($1.8 billion) in revenues and 3.3 trillion dong in net profit.To drive growth, the company’s shareholders approved a proposal to hike the foreign ownership limit in the carrier from the current 30 percent to 49 percent, post which it will make a formal request to regulators.State-owned carrier Vietnam Airlines has about 50 percent share in the domestic market with the rest being held by its subsidies, the Bloomberg reported two weeks ago.Four months ago, the company’s 167 million initial public offering (IPO) that valued it about $1 billion, saw a spectacular listing on February 28, gaining 20 percent on debut on the Ho Chi Minh City Stock Exchange.Launching its commercial services in December 2011, VietJet has a 45 aircraft strong fleet and flies to destinations within as well as 30 regional destinations in Thailand, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, China, Japan, Hong Kong and Myanmar.The carrier managed to catch the attention of passengers and the general public when its stewardesses appeared in little more than bikinis as uniform.”They’ve been clever about their marketing.This gave them huge publicity all over the world,” aviation analyst Greg Waldron of FlightGlobal told the BBC in February.However, they had to pay a price in August 2012 for their bikini act. The airline hired beauty contestants in bikini-tops for a Hawaiian-themed dance on its maiden flight from Ho Chi Minh City to Nha Trang, the BBC reported that year, citing newspaper reports.VietJet said it merely wanted to offer a “holiday atmosphere for tourists who were on way to Nha Trang, a popular Vietnamese holiday destination.”The tactic backfired when the airline was penalised.Last week, VietJet resorted to a less-risky way — flash mob dance — to welcome its passengers on board on the maiden Hanoi-Singapore flight.VietJet’s founder and CEO is Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao. The 46-year-old executive is also Southeast Asia’s only woman billionaire, according to Forbes.  VietJet Air CEO Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao speaks behind a model of a VietJet aircraft during an interview in her office in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, January 10, 2017.Reuters filelast_img read more

San Jacinto County Judge Arrested On Charges That He Forged Document

Get Smart With WaveShades TaptoPay Sunglasses

first_img On a mission to simplify shopping, Australian start-up Inamo last week tested a new contactless payment platform: sunglasses.The wearable, dubbed WaveShades, was handed out to St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival goers to make contactless purchases across five Aussie cities.A collaborative project between Visa, specs maker Local Supply, and Inamo, the accessory features a secure payment chip in one arm, allowing folks to buy food, drinks, and souvenirs with the tap of their glasses.Inamo secure payment chipWaveShades utilize the same technology developed for Inamo Curl—a waterproof wearable that attaches to most watch or fitness bands for tap-and-go payments. The new product is “a great endorsement” of the company’s platform, “which unshackles people from their phones or wallets,” start-up CEO Peter Colbert said in a statement.Lucky Laneway attendees in Adelaide, Brisbane, Fremantle, Melbourne, and Sydney last week snagged a free pair of shades, pre-loaded with $50, according to local news site The AU Review.Simply remove the sunglasses to wave them over a contactless payment reader—just as you would a bank card, mobile app, or smartwatch. Listen for the beep, then return the rims to your face to protect your eyes and look cool.“The financial services environment is evolving at an unprecedented pace, which is exemplified by consumers’ changing relationship with payments,” Frederique Covington, Visa’s senior vice president of marketing for Asia Pacific, said.This pilot, he continued, “is all about showing Australians that innovation in how we pay can make their lives simpler and everyday experiences seamless and rewarding.”Inamo partnered with Oberthur Technologies (OT) and Heritage Bank to help breath life into WaveShades, which are not yet available for general purchase. There is no word on when, or if, the wearable will hit shelves—in Oz or other countries.Despite Google’s failed Glasses experiment, high-tech specs are in this year: German optics manufacturer Carl Zeiss is reportedly developing a “light pair of augmented/mixed-reality glasses” in partnership with Apple.

Truck bombing at Baghdad market kills 67 IS claims blast

first_imgThe Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the blast, saying it targeted a gathering place of Shiites and vowed more attacks. The truck detonated in the Jameela market in the Iraqi capital’s crowded Sadr City neighbourhood shortly after dawn, according to two local police officers.They also said that at least 152 people were wounded in the attack. The market is the main center for produce and food sales in the Iraqi Capital.Residents of the Shiite community rushed to help the victims, carrying corpses in garbage bags and blankets, and sent the wounded to local hospitals in ambulances or personal cars. The blast incinerated much of the market, leaving charred wooden market stalls and scattering fruits and vegetables far around it. Also Read – Nine hurt in accident at fireworks show in French resortFire trucks and ambulances were at the scene and fire men were dousing the still-smoldering complex with water long after the explosion.“On Thursdays the market is especially crowded because people come from the other provinces to stock up on food for the weekend,” one of the officers said. He said the truck that set off the explosion was a refrigeration truck, so it was impossible to distinguish it from other trucks delivering produce to the market. Also Read – Pakistan Army ‘fully prepared’ to face any challenge: Army spokesmanA minibus driver, Hassan Hamid, said he driving not far from the area when the force of the explosion threw his vehicle about 10 meters (yards) away and onto the sidewalk.“This is the strongest explosion I’ve ever seen in my life,” said the 37-year old father of three, speaking from his hospital bed where he was being treated for shrapnel injuries.“I saw some cars were thrown into the sky and a fire erupted all over the place.” Four hospital officials confirmed the casualty figures.All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorised to speak to the media. In a message posted on an IS-affiliated Twitter account, the Islamic State said the attack was carried out by a parked, explosives-laden truck. The claim says the Islamic State seeks to have the “rejectionists (Shiites) experience the same harm as their bombardments cause to our Muslim people.”last_img read more

A Digital Tattoo You Can Only See With a Smartphone

first_img Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. If you’ve ever wanted a tattoo but haven’t because, maybe, your parents or some other loved one might freak out when they saw it, this app might be for you. But get ready for how it works:Artist Anthony Antonellis implanted an RFID chip about the size of a grain of rice in his hand, between his thumb and index finger. The chip stores up to 1 KB of data and is equipped with a teensy antenna. When you hold a mobile device with a special app over the chip, a JPEG of a pre-loaded image is displayed on the screen. Or the file could be a GIF or even a music file that plays on the device.Pretty far out.Using a smartphone or other mobile device, Antonellis can upload new files and swap out old ones. The first “tattoo” he uploaded was a brightly colored animated GIF. Being an artist, it makes sense that Antonellis wants to use the app as a weird new way to show people art.Since the chip can hold a number of types of files one could get creeped out by the possibility of people getting chips implanted in them loaded with identification information or tracking technology. If that’s you, scale it back. We’re not there yet. In the meantime, this is a pretty cool application.If you’re not easily grossed out by needles and the like, check out the video below of Antonellis having the chip implanted and explaining why, courtesy of Animal New York.What crazy apps and gadgets have you come across lately?
