NB Liberals question Tory leader campaigning with Albertas Jason Kenney

first_imgFREDERICTON – A Liberal candidate vying for a seat in New Brunswick’s upcoming election is ringing alarm bells about the Progressive Conservative leader’s ties to Jason Kenney — concerns Blaine Higgs is brushing off as overblown.Liberal candidate Brent Mazerolle said he wants to know if Higgs supports some of the views expressed by the leader of Alberta’s United Conservative Party, who has drawn criticism in the past for some of his socially conservative beliefs.“We’re 29 days out (from the election) and we still, as New Brunswickers, aren’t sure where Mr. Higgs stands on a lot of issues,” said Mazerolle.Kenney was to join Higgs at a fundraiser Sunday evening and a campaign announcement Monday morning.Kenney drew criticism last year for saying he would like to have parents notified if their child joined a gay-straight alliance at school, in cases where joining could put the child in harm’s way.But after party members voted at their founding policy convention in May to essentially out students who join so-called GSAs, Kenney said he wouldn’t implement the policy if his party forms government.Mazerolle, a former schoolteacher, said Kenney’s original stance stuck with him. The Liberal candidate for Riverview said LGBTQ youth need to have a safe place outside their homes if their parents don’t accept them.“Potentially outing schoolchildren in their one safe place in their life, that’s not a gay issue, that’s a safety issue,” he said.“Kids who are struggling with these issues, they’re in serious danger a lot of the time in certain communities.”Mazerolle also said he doesn’t know where Higgs stands on the issue of abortion, which Kenney is against, although he’s said he won’t legislate on the issue.In a phone interview, Higgs chalked his meetings with Kenney up to a matter of business and said the Liberals are “trying to make issues where none exists.”He said he believes it’s important to liaise with other political leaders in the country, especially during an election.“I respect everyone’s views, and their own personal beliefs, and I think that’s what makes our province and our country strong,” said Higgs.“It isn’t for me to get in the middle of those personal discussions, and that isn’t the discussion I’m going to have with Jason Kenney. We’re going to be talking about issues that affect our country.”Higgs accused the Liberal government of playing politics and said there are bigger issues at play in New Brunswick, including the economy and how the province should address carbon pricing.“Regardless of one’s political views, there’s a lot of centric issues here,” said Higgs.Thomas Bateman, a political science professor at Fredericton’s St. Thomas University, said the Liberals’ criticism of the Tory leader’s ties with Kenney could be an attempt to pull centrist voters to their side.Bateman said he believes the New Brunswick Tories could have Kenney on the election trail to support Higgs’s stance on hydraulic fracturing. In the past Higgs has said he would be willing to revisit the province’s moratorium on fracking in some regions.Kenney “undoubtedly would tout the benefits of natural resource exploitation for New Brunswick, because it’s worked so very well in Alberta,” said Bateman.“I can’t say this for sure, but I suspect the conservatives might want to emphasize the need for natural gas development in the province — which would require fracking — and Mr. Kenney might be witness number one to suggest it is environmentally manageable and economically very promising.”Health care and senior care remain as top issues this election season. Liberal leader Brian Gallant announced Sunday that a re-elected party would recruit more staff and increase hours of care in nursing homes, just a day after he pledged to build three new nursing homes and add 86 memory-care beds throughout the province.Higgs, meanwhile, took a less bricks-and-mortar approach to senior care, saying a Progressive Conservative government would consult with seniors about how they want to live and provide supports so they can remain in their own homes longer.The Green party, led by David Coon, will launch its campaign platform Monday morning.— By Alex Cooke in Halifaxlast_img read more

Passage of pink salmon through BC slide area concerning to officials DFO

first_imgLILLOOET, B.C. — Officials are uncertain whether limited success in getting some salmon species past a rock slide in British Columbia’s Fraser River will work with smaller fish expected to arrive in the coming days.Michael Crowe, with the Department Fisheries and Oceans, says an estimated 1.5 million pink salmon will pass through the remote area but they’re weaker swimmers than chinook and sockeye, and coho and steelhead will show up soon afterwards.He says engineering work to blast rock obstructing the passage of five species of salmon is challenging.Crews have managed to transport nearly 60,000 salmon by helicopter since the slide was discovered in June.Crowe says plans are underway to get a so-called spider excavator to the base of the slide so it can use wheels or legs to go around difficult terrain and allow for rocks to be blasted and removed.He says federal, provincial and First Nations officials are working to deal with challenges in the area where a new road has been built to transport fish at night when helicopters can’t fly.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Mbappeless PSG lose fail to clinch French crown

first_imgNantes (France): Paris Saint-Germain failed to the seal the Ligue 1 title for the third match running after a second-string line-up without dropped Kylian Mbappe took the champions to their second defeat in a matter of days, 3-2 at Nantes. A Diego Carlos brace and Majeed Waris’ tap-in inflicted a third league loss on Thomas Tuchel’s side, who were hammered 5-1 at second-placed Lille on Sunday and drew with Strasbourg the previous week, despite Dani Alves’ stunning opener and substitute Metehan Guclu pulling one back late on. However PSG, who were also missing a host of other first-team players through injuries and suspension, remain 17 points clear with six games left. The runaway leaders will win their sixth title in seven years on Sunday if Lille fail to win at Toulouse and they then beat struggling Monaco. Tuchel refused to reveal if he left Mbappe out of the squad for blasting his teammates for “lacking personality” after the Lille loss, saying that there would be “no explanation” of his decision. “It’s very easy to analyse, it was a very bad performance, we deserved to lose,” said Tuchel. “We controlled the game at Lille but today there was no performance for 90 minutes. “You can lose and you can make mistakes, and we will always defend the players if we feel that they’ve played with a great attitude and hunger. But today it is not possible.” Depleted PSG had to thank Gianluigi Buffon 12 minutes in when he managed to push away Kalifa Coulibaly’s header from point-blank range, and seven minutes later Alves appeared to have calmed Parisian nerves with his wonder strike. There looked to be little on when the Brazilian collected Leandro Paredes’ simple pass, but he quickly lashed an unstoppable dipping drive past Maxime Dupe to score his first Ligue 1 goal this season. However just three minutes after the opener Diego Carlos was allowed too much space to nod home Valentin Ronger inswinging corner. PSG continued to struggle despite the odd flash from Moussa Diaby, and the hosts grabbed a deserved second just before the break. Coulibaly was at the heart of it, brushing Thilo Kehrer off the ball on the left flank, before cutting back to Samuel Moutoussamy, whose miss-hit shoot evaded the dozing PSG defence and found Waris for the simplest of tap-ins.last_img read more

Vodafone in talks to sell stake in Verizon Wireless and exit US

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Danica Kirka, The Associated Press Posted Aug 29, 2013 4:24 am MDT LONDON – Britain’s Vodafone PLC, one of the world’s largest cellphone companies, confirmed Thursday that it was talking to Verizon Communications about selling its U.S. operations.The U.K. company is mulling options for its 45 per cent stake in the U.S.’s Verizon Wireless, of which Verizon Communications owns the other 55 per cent.Analysts have suggested that Verizon wants to pay around $100 billion for Vodafone’s stake, although reports have said that Vodafone is pressing for as much as $130 billion.Vodafone’s shares were trading 8.14 per cent higher at 2.05 pounds after it confirmed the talks with Verizon.Vodafone, which has wide-ranging interests and is expanding in Europe, has long been rumoured to be interested in a U.S. exit. Talks on a sale earlier reportedly broken down over price and tax concerns.But competition among cellphone providers and other companies moving into the cellphone space is pushing both companies toward a deal, said Ronald Klingebiel, a telecommunications specialist with Warwick Business School.Vodafone also had no control in running its Verizon stake, which made it more of an investment than a base from which to expand into the U.S. market.“This would be a happy moment to exit,” Klingebiel said.Meanwhile, there has been recent speculation that Verizon could enter the Canadian market with the possible purchase of at least one of the country’s smaller wireless players.In July, Verizon said it was taking a look at the Canada.“We continue to explore and have discussions, but at this point it’s really just an exploratory exercise,” Verizon chief financial officer Francis Shammo said a the time.The Canadian government recently eased the rules on foreign investment for wireless companies with less than 10 per cent of the marketplace, paving the way for the entry of Verizon and possibly other foreign telecom companies to set up shop and also buy small Canadian wireless companies.Canada’s big wireless carriers have launched a media campaign to warn that they would be at a disadvantage if Verizon were allowed into the market under the current set of rules.At the same time, Vodafone is pushing ahead with a takeover bid for Germany’s biggest cable operator, Kabel Deutschland, as part of its strategy to dominate media services in Europe, its biggest market.If approved by regulators, Vodafone would gain 32.4 million mobile, five million broadband and 7.6 million direct TV customers in Germany. It has 19.2 million mobile customers in the UK, and it has been under intense competition.Any proceeds from a Verizon Wireless sale would add to its war chest for further acquisition or allow the company to pay down debt.But analysts have been cautious, wary of Vodafone’s track record on mergers. In 2000, in what was the largest corporate merger ever, the company took over Mannesmann AG in a stock-swap deal valued at $180 billion. Many analysts at the time believed the German company was overvalued.— With files from The Canadian Press Vodafone in talks to sell stake in Verizon Wireless and exit US market read more

Wooden shoes leatherbelt beatings and hunger Slavery in their own words

Department of Labour National Productivity Legislation Workshop

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, September 26, 2017 – Nassau – As the Department of Labour continues to fulfill its’ mission of fostering good industrial relations between employers and employees, while promoting high levels of employment, the Department facilitated a two-day “Productivity Legislation Workshop” from September 20 – 21, 2017.    The workshop, sponsored by the International Labour Organization and the National Tripartite Council, brought all social partners to the table to discuss the state of productivity and competitiveness in The Bahamas.    Social partners included executives of The Bahamas Department of Labor as well as participants from various trade unions, the Bahamas Chamber of Commerce & Employers Confederation, corporations and other local agencies.On Wednesday, 21st September, at the opening ceremony of the two day workshop, brief remarks were given by representatives from each pillar of the National Tripartite Council including Mr. Bernard Evans, President of the National Congress of Trade Unions Bahamas (NCTUB); Mr. Peter Goudie, Bahamas Chamber of Commerce & Employers Confederation (BCCEC); Mr. Tyrone “Rock” Morris, Secretary General, Commonwealth of The Bahamas Trade Union Congress (CBTUC) and Mr. Kelvin Sergeant, ILO Specialist for Sustainable Enterprise & Job Creation.Mr. Bernard Evans stated in remarks at the opening that after more than 20 years of advocacy for implementation of the Productivity Council here in The Bahamas, it would provide hope in an effort to save a generation of unskilled, unprepared working Bahamians who are ill-equipped to compete on a level both regionally and internationally.    He noted that the main objective of the two day workshop would be to bring together key stakeholders in the various sectors to strategize on productivity improvement and competitiveness with special focus on private sector; to develop a National Action Plan for Productivity Development in The Bahamas.Mr. Evans stated that the plan should outline the performance priority areas, the key indicators of performance on all islands and also focus on a system for monitoring performance and assignment of responsibilities by all stakeholders.    Also, to establish a Bahamian organization of Productivity Agents that will promote the development of productivity and performance-related activities to facilitate regional and international competitiveness and sustainability in production of goods and services within all of our islands.    This, he noted, will improve the quality of life for workers and citizens alike.    Mr. Evans suggests that legislation is a start and is hopeful that the current Government administration will commit to putting necessary legislation in place to begin the process.Similarly, Mr. Kelvin Sergeant, ILO Specialist for Sustainable Enterprise & Job Creation is pleased with productivity becoming a critical word in The Bahamas over the past few years.   He is encouraged that there are a broad range of voices – from politicians and business groups to economists, academics and unions – who are talking about productivity and what should be done to get performance up to speed.    He noted that in order to achieve the acceleration of productive growth in The Bahamas, it requires a country-specific mix of policies aimed at creating an environment conducive to sustainable enterprises, building human capital in basic education including technical and core skills, encouraging the application of decent and productive workplace practices, addressing sector-specific challenges, promoting environmental-friendly technology and ways of doing business.Mr. Sergeant specifically noted that the focus for the two day workshop would be frank discussions on the importance of productivity performance and what the productivity challenges are in The Bahamas.   The interventions needed at all levels of productivity improvement, including the need for legislation to establish a national productivity council is also a paramount focus.The Minister of Labour, Senator the Hon. Dion A. Foulkes officially opened the workshop by thanking the ILO Team, including Claudia Coenjaerts and Kelvin Sergeant, for their exceptional job in executing the mandate of the ILO in the region.    Minister Foulkes stated that the Government of The Bahamas cannot achieve the goal of increasing economic growth through National Productivity by itself, therefore he congratulated the organizers of the workshop and pledged the Government’s full commitment to continue to work with the International Labour Organization, the National Tripartite Council and all of the social partners to fully implement a National Productivity Council.  Minister Foulkes declared the historic workshop open and noted that he looked forward to the results of the deliberations over the two days.The workshop was held at the Department of Labour on Rosetta Street and included discussions and work sessions on The State of Productivity and Competitiveness in The Bahamas, Understanding Productivity and its relation to economic growth and Economic Transformation and Policy Reponses.Director of Labour, Mr. A.

Sony waited at least a day before revealing PSN hack

first_imgSony’s executive team may have painted itself into a corner regarding information sharing about the recent PlayStation Network server breach. A document dated May 6, handed to the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry by Sony, gives a breakdown of the events that occurred from the moment Sony knew something was up with their PSN servers. That time period started on April 25, but we didn’t know anything publicly and official until April 26.That 24 hour period is key, as the document states Sony knew a large amount of data had been taken on the 25th, but chose not to issue a statement until the 26th. On May 1st Kazuo Hirai, president of Sony’s gaming division, stated they didn’t know about the breach until the 26th. Again, this is a day later than the document states.Also at issue here is how much Sony knew and decided to disclose publicly. On the 25th it knew lots of data had been taken, but not specifically which data. On the 26th all Sony would say is the possibility that user’s personal details had been taken could not be ruled out.The reason given for not being more cautious and publicly saying user data was probably taken is surprising. In the document Sony states “We hadn’t figured out what kind of data had been leaked … we didn’t want to bewilder our customers.”In the end, the user details of 77 million accounts was stolen from PSN followed by millions more from Sony Online Entertainment servers. This new detail from the Sony’s own timeline document is sure to put more pressure on the company to explain exactly what went on, why there are discrepancies, and why they didn’t share more information sooner.via MarketWatchMatthew’s OpinionI think there is still a lot more to learn about Sony’s actions during this time period. We followed the PSN downtime pretty closely and you may remember PSN was offline from April 21 and ruined Easter weekend for a lot of gamers. The next we heard was on April 25 when PSN was still offline as Sony was tracking an “external intrusion”. The following day we found out the truth when Sony admitted being hacked.So if this document states that the hack was detected on April 25, why was PSN down from the 21st? Did Sony think something was amiss but not figure out what it was specifically for four days? That’s very poor management and threat response times if it turns out to be true.While Sony may have decided not to “bewilder” customers, I think the opposite has happened by not being upfront and timely with the details of the hack. Users are more bewildered than ever by how Sony manages its systems.last_img read more

Hey James Damore Your Beliefs About Women in Tech Are Nothing Like

first_img Listen Now Problem Solvers with Jason Feifer Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Upon reading James Damore’s Google Memo, I was inspired to respond to his words by pairing my personal experience with facts defying his stance. The following is my retort to his divisive words. I grew up in a very patriarchal society, and had gotten used to hearing that boys and girls were different. Despite that, my mother was the entrepreneur in the family and was always the one who drove our household earnings. She was the rock of the house, tenacious and extremely smart. There were a lot of struggles that our immigrant family went through, and she pulled us out of every one of them.And yet, from her own mouth I would hear how boys can do this, and girls can’t do that. She was a walking contradiction. The societal message that was so deeply ingrained in her psyche made her impart these false distinctions onto her own daughter.This dichotomy is what led me on my journey to understand and ultimately shrug off the message. It was a big shrug, but it could only be done as a shrug because as a minority woman, I was not allowed to rage or be aggressive. That shrug was the only way to succeed in a tech career as a woman. Instead, I had to silently toil, often working 80 hours a week during my earlier days at Palm. I would toil away even after all the lights in the office had been turned off, because I had to prove to everyone that I deserved to be there.James, how often have you been the last one in your large office?Over the years, I would pull all-nighters while shrugging off advances, unwanted kisses, hugs and lap dances, sometimes bought for me by my boss as he watched. Shrug. I didn’t complain the next day, but yucked it up with my boss and went to our client meetings.  James, have you ever been mortified by your boss and had to pretend to enjoy it?You said women don’t take stressful jobs because we’re not biologically inclined, but do you think you can handle the stress of working in these conditions? Women have to deal with an entirely different level of stress. The fact is that women are physiologically better at coping with stress.Related: That Infamous Google Memo Says Plenty About What’s Wrong With Tech and Why It’s So Hard to Talk AboutIn light of all the stories coming out of Silicon Valley, I realize my story not only isn’t unique, it’s the norm that women in tech have become so very used to. That is why when I read your memo I found it so personally hurtful and enraging. Your memo perpetuates the myth that women always play the victim, when so many of us could never afford the luxury of complaining. Keeping silent was the unwritten rule to succeed in a male-dominated industry.You think that the advancement in Human Resource (HR) process to promote women and minorities creates favorable situations towards women, but let’s look at why those HR processes were created in the first place. In an article earlier this year, Adrianne LaFrance at the Atlantic explored the obvious societal biases towards women even pondering the notion of learning engineering:“We do not permit women to register in the Engineering School under present regulations,” wrote William Mott, the dean of the Carnegie Institute of Technology, in 1919. The article goes on to cite numerous letters collected by the Society of Women Engineers, all with a similar tone of dismay that women could be/would be interested in engineering because they believe, as you do, that women are too biologically different. However, it is statements like this that discouraged women:“In reply to your recent communication, I would state that we have not now, have never had, and do not expect to have in the near future, any women students registered in our engineering department,” wrote a professor at University of North Carolina.Related: Google Has Fired the Writer of the 3,000-Word Viral Memo That’s Gripping the CompanyDespite all these societal and historical biases, women in engineering grew from the 1960s to the 1980s, so let’s drop this fallacy that women are biologically different and thus not interested in engineering. Biology has nothing to do with it as shown in the chart below.The fact is, another blow came in the form of more gender bias in the 1980s when personal computers (PCs) came to market and were exclusively marketed towards rich white boys, leaving girls and disadvantaged minorities behind (as discussed by Steve Henn on NPR).PCs were pitched it to parents as toys for boys. As a result, PCs were locked in boys’ rooms, away from their sisters. My dear mom, so full of contradictions, bought a PC for my brother but thankfully saw the sense of making the PC an accessible device to me as well, by setting it up on our rarely-used dining room table. Incidentally, I (not my brother) spent the most time on the damn thing, playing Tetris and learning command lines.So, James, women don’t avoid engineering because we’re too biologically different. Many aren’t interested because we’ve been discouraged from our interest at every turn.Imagine that despite all this — your parents discouraging you, your school discouraging you, your friends discouraging you — you still end up in tech, where your co-workers and boss treat you differently. Despite all this, James, you still excel. You go on to start your own company, which generates eight figures in revenue with no VC funding, and is declared one of the “fastest growing” in its field.Related: Google Says It Would Cost Too Much to Gather Wage Gap DataYou’ll find that your “shrug it off” method and perseverance has made you a success, so you decide to start another company. This time you decide to raise VC funds, but once again you’re up against biases that are so deeply ingrained that only 2 percent of women receive funding. Did you ever study sexual linguistics? I did, and I’m very aware how language impacts perceptions. Harvard Business Review did an amazing study for over a year, where they recorded venture capitalists’ discussions to understand the impact of words.In the early days of fundraising for my current venture, IOTAS, I heard “no” from over 60 VCs. I reflect what it’s like to raise venture funding as a woman and things are getting worse. For example, “In 2016, 5,839 male-founded companies got VC funding, compared to just 359 female-founded companies. In other words, companies run by men got more than 16 times more funding than companies run by women” – from Fortune’s “Venture Capital’s Funding Gender Gap Is Actually Getting Worse”.Being scrappy, I managed to go through the grueling, but less biased, process of grant funding from the National Science Foundation and National Institute of Standards & Technology. Most recently, IOTAS raised a series seed round with Oregon Angel Fund, Rogue Ventures and others totaling $2.25M. Even during this successful round, I was disturbed when a VC firm that primarily invests in minorities and women passed on our series seed round, because the valuation agreed to by our lead investor was considered too high. Too high!?! Do women and minority focused VCs immediately expect that the valuation of the companies that they want to support will be cheaper?It’s hard enough to get funding as a minority woman, but when the VCs who support you discount your value, then it’s not just hard — it’s nearly impossible. Regardless, we closed the round with excellent investors who valued our company and team and gave us the valuation we wanted.James, as to your scientific theories, is it possible that we’re both right that? There are biological differences between men and women, but there are even stronger social constructs that need to be challenged and thrown away.As you said yourself, “Many of these differences are small and there’s significant overlap between men and women, so you can’t say anything about an individual given these population level distributions.” The differences, as science points out, are so small that it should make no statistical difference as to why women aren’t in engineering. So, based on your own argument, it must be rooted in some other issues; possibly at historical and societal biases that led to women not being in engineering.Related: 3 Reasons Why Gender Equality is an ‘Everyone’ IssueShouldn’t humans strive to be more, to be better, than our base biology dictates? Do you want to be no more than an ape? As you see it, “Status is the primary metric that men are judged on” i.e. the need to be superior to other men is also seen in the base needs of our cousins, the apes. Is that where we want humanity to be — our base self? Isn’t Google trying to achieve something better? Isn’t Google striving for something more than what our biology, society and history hands us at birth?I have a little 8-year-old girl who, perhaps because no one told her she wasn’t supposed to, loves to code and loves her robotics class. Sadly, she is only one of two girls in her robotics class because parents still wrongly assume their girls won’t be interested in these things. But, how is an 8-year-old to know what interests them unless they try? That is why these programs to teach girls to code are important, so they can try. I see myself in both her and my little boy’s eyes.Like my mother, I am the sole bread-winner (and my husband also breaks gender expectations and is a proud, loving and wonderful stay-at-home dad.) Unlike my mother, I will not tell her what she shouldn’t be interested in, so she can strive to be more in every way. 9 min read Hear from business owners and CEOs who went through a crippling business problem and came out the other side bigger and stronger.

House passes bill to make research tax break permanent

first_img Sponsored Stories Top Stories Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement “Research and development is the lifeblood of manufacturing, driving growth through increased productivity and new product development,” the National Association of Manufacturers said in a letter to lawmakers. “The lack of a permanent R&D tax credit creates uncertainty as manufacturers do not know if the credit will be around for the entire length of their R&D projects.”The House passed the bill by a vote of 274-145. It now goes to the Senate.The White House threatened to veto the bill because it would add $182 billion to the budget deficit over the next decade. President Barack Obama said he supports making the popular tax break permanent but wants to offset the cost by eliminating other tax breaks for businesses.“As with other similar proposals, Republicans are imposing a double standard by adding to the deficit to continue and expand costly tax breaks, while slashing investments and programs that serve middle-class and working Americans in the name of fiscal rectitude,” the White House said in a statement.House Republican leaders say Congress should not be forced to offset the extension of existing tax cuts by raising other taxes. 4 must play golf courses in Arizona Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility “Why does the president want to ship America’s research jobs overseas?” said Rep. Kevin Brady, R-Texas, who sponsored the bill. “He knows both parties in Congress have supported this measure on a temporary basis without raising taxes. So stop making excuses and stand up for American jobs and American innovation.”The House voted twice last year to make the tax break permanent, but both bills died in the Senate. In December, Congress passed a bill renewing more than 50 temporary tax breaks, including the credit for research and development. Obama signed the bill, but it only extended the tax breaks through the end of 2014.___Follow Stephen Ohlemacher on Twitter: http://twitter.com/stephenatapCopyright © The Associated Press.
