We want Nunavut to shine Territorys new premier looks to the future

first_imgIQALUIT, Nunavut – The life story of Nunavut’s new premier reads like a modern history of the Inuit. But Paul Quassa says he wants to look forward, not back.“We want Nunavut to shine,” says Quassa, who was sworn in last week as the territory’s fourth premier. “We want to see a truly brilliant territory.”Quassa, 65, was born near Igloolik on the Melville Peninsula, where the west coast of Hudson Bay flicks up toward Baffin Island.“I was born in an igloo,” he says. “My generation is the last generation to have experienced the traditional way of living prior to people being moved into communities.“I have that sense of truly traditional Inuit values.”Quassa may have been born on the land, but he didn’t grow up there. At the age of six, he was taken to a residential school in Churchill, Man., where he was to spend his next 13 years.His memories, unlike those of so many others, are fond.“I always feel so fortunate. I received a very strong education at that time. That’s the positive side about residential school — it was a very strong educational process. I retained a very strong sense of my identity.”It wasn’t long after he left school that Inuit identity and politics became Quassa’s main concern. By 1972, he was involved in Inuit organizations and eventually became one of the chief negotiators of the Nunavut Land Claim. Quassa’s signature is on the 1993 agreement.Since then, Quassa has led the group that administers that land claim. He spent the better part of a decade as a CBC journalist. He’s worked for Isuma Productions, an award-winning film and video studio in his home town of Igloolik.A 13-part series on traditional Inuit life he helped produce is still being shown.He was the education minister in the last Nunavut government, where he oversaw an ultimately unsuccessful attempt to modernize territorial legislation to promote fully bilingual students.It’s hard to pin down where Quassa hopes to lead the territory. Under Nunavut’s consensus-style government, legislative priorities aren’t set until all new legislature members sit down and thrash them out together. That meeting won’t happen until the new year.Quassa uses the phrase “social development” a lot when he talks about his own priorities.“Housing. Social services. Training. Health,” he said. “Social development can mean so many things.”The list of Nunavut’s problems is long and it can seem as if they are tangled irretrievably together. Quassa has his own ideas about where to start tugging at the knot.“Education, training,” he says. “Our territory is a very young territory. We have to think in a long-term plan and we have to think about our future generation.”Look for another version of that failed Education Act during the new session, Quassa hints.“Education is always a big issue in the territory. This is one of the areas we’ll be talking about when we talk about our new mandate.”Expect continued funding requests of the federal government for infrastructure, too. Quassa points out Nunavut remains the only jurisdiction in Canada with no outside road links.“We are part of Canada,” he says. “Coast to coast to coast.”One thing he’d like to see more of in Nunavut over the next four years is confidence.“We want a population that’s vibrant, that’s not afraid to get into the workforce, a population that is more educated in both Inuktitut and English. We want a population that’s outgoing and positive.”Quassa says it all goes back to the presence of his signature on the land-claim document that helped create the territory he now leads.“I knew the vision then and the vision hasn’t changed.”— By Bob Weber in Edmonton.

In South Delhi basic issues of water supply traffic congestion take centrestage

first_imgNew Delhi: In the sweeping South Delhi landscape largely comprising urban villages and unauthorised colonies, ask residents what concerns them the most and the reply inevitably is water supply, sewer lines and traffic congestion. While political parties are raising the issues of nationalism, unemployment and full statehood status for Delhi for the Lok Sabha election, the residents of the high-profile constituency insist that they need someone who takes care of their day-to-day problems first. Also Read – Odd-Even: CM seeks transport dept’s views on exemption to women, two wheelers, CNG vehicles For Bhagwanji, an elderly painter, the ideal MP will be the one who takes care of the electricity and water woes he faces in his village in Tughlaqabad. “I don’t have an electricity connection, so I need to pay Rs 300 every month for a connection and Rs 300 for water. This makes a big dent in my pocket as my work is seasonal.” Water supply remains one of the biggest concerns for the residents of South Delhi. Some places in Mehrauli, Chattarpur and Sangam Vihar still experience water scarcity. While the people admit that the supply has improved a lot over the last two years, yet, they say, a lot remains to be done. Also Read – More good air days in Delhi due to Centre’s steps: Javadekar Mumina, who works as a domestic help, said she has to buy water from tankers as sometimes they do not get water for a month. “The situation gets really bad during the summer in Sangam Vihar. While Delhi Chief Minister Kejriwal has done a lot of work for the people but these basic issues still need to be sorted,” she said. Baby Prasad nods in agreement. “We want someone to work for the daily issues first. I live in Chattarpur which has a water supply problem. Some work has been done, like piped water has reached some places, but it is yet to reach the inner lanes. Sewer lines are also urgently needed there,” said Prasad, who works as a cook. Before the delimitation exercise carried out in 2008, the constituency comprised a number of upscale areas, but now it predominantly has urban villages, unauthorised and resettlement colonies and slums which present a number of infrastructural challenges. It has 10 assembly segments — Chattarpur, Palam, Bijwasan, Kalkaji, Mehrauli, Deoli, Ambedkar Nagar, Sangam Vihar, Tughlaqabad and Badarpur. The seat is witnessing a triangular contest among AAP’s Raghav Chadha, sitting BJP MP Ramesh Bidhuri and Congress’s Vijender Singh. The AAP, which is seeking to wrest the seat from the BJP, has been raising local issues before the people. In the 2014 parliamentary elections, the Congress did not win even a single seat in Delhi and it is seeking to reverse its fortunes this time by fielding among others Olympic medal-winning boxer Singh, who is making his political debut. The civic issue of parking and traffic congestion in the heavily-populated constituency also weigh on people’s mind. Many complain about the unending jams that they have to negotiate, especially during rush hour, and say these matters haven’t been paid heed to. “The Mehrauli-Badarpur Road is always choc-a-bloc. When I return from my office which is in Gurgaon, the Khanpur area always has jams and something needs to be done about it,” said Cyril Sebastian, who works in a media house. Bidhuri said that if he is elected, within 100 days the fourth phase of metro will be started which was supposed to be launched in 2016 from Jaitpur to Aerocity. He also promised to set up water treatment plants in the required areas in the constituency within six months. He claimed that there was scarcity of water under the Sheila Diskhit-led Congress government and many people did not have access to filtered water which he made available. The incumbent BJP MP told PTI that during his tenure, a Delhi University college was opened for the first time in 40 years and the Mahipalpur underpass on the Delhi-Gurgaon e-way was constructed, besides the setting up of a rugby stadium near IGNOU. Bidhuri is a prominent leader from the Gurjar community in the constituency which is a Jat-Gurjar stronghold. Niharika Goyal, a journalist living in Deoli, believes that caste will play an important role in the elections. According to her, the competition will narrow down to the BJP and the Congress now that the grand old party has fielded Singh, a Jat, against Bidhuri. Chadha believes the politics of caste and religion has taken a backseat in a place like Delhi. “I personally don’t think it is going to play a role. The first on people’s mind would be comparing promises made by the political parties,” he said. The AAP candidate said the dominant issues in South Delhi are access to water, electricity, education, healthcare education, sewage, roads, and this time the people will vote on the basis of the local factors affecting their lives. He said if voted to power, he would ensure the regularisation of unauthorised colonies, provide each colony and cluster with adequate supply of piped water and also work on issues related to schools. Chadha also said he would also work on the issue of traffic congestion on the Mehrauli-Badarpur road, which goes through eight of the 10 assembly segments in the constituency. Singh said the issues he will focus on are youth and sports in the constituency. “I am genuinely concerned about employment, which I think is a prominent issue for the youth. And being a sportsperson, I am also keen on working towards developing sports infrastructure. It’s about time we had good infrastructure so that budding athletes can actually flourish,” he said. As the Olympic bronze medallist is preparing for his first bout in the political arena, away from the lights of the boxing ring, some people think the apart from the caste factor, his celebrity status will also attract votes for the Congress. The constituency has been represented by popular leaders such as Sushma Swaraj, Madan Lal Khurana and Vijay Kumar Malhotra in the past. In 1999, former prime minister Manmohan Singh also contested from the seat but he lost to Malhotra by 30,000 votes. The constituency currently has 20,65,755 voters and it will go to polls on May 12.last_img read more

IMF approves Sri Lankas fourth review and more funds

Following the Executive Board’s discussion of the review, Mitsuhiro Furusawa, Acting Chair and Deputy Managing Director, said:“Sri Lanka has made important progress under its Fund-supported program. The authorities’ efforts to improve the policy mix through fiscal consolidation, prudent monetary policy, and landmark structural reforms are supporting the economic recovery, despite recent shocks. Sustaining the reform momentum is critical to strengthen the country’s resilience to shocks, given the still sizable public debt and low external buffers, and to set the foundation for strong and inclusive growth. The Executive Board also concluded the 2018 Article IV consultation with Sri Lanka. “Further progress with revenue-based fiscal consolidation, supported by the new Inland Revenue Act, is needed to help safeguard important social and infrastructure spending, including in response to natural disasters. Going forward, a robust fiscal rule and medium-term debt management strategy will help place debt firmly on downward path.“The recent approval of an automatic fuel pricing formula is a major achievement towards reducing fiscal risks from state-owned enterprises (SOEs). In this regard, it is essential for the authorities to implement an automatic pricing formula for electricity and a restructuring plan for Sri Lankan Airlines, as well as further strengthening SOE governance and transparency. The impact of the reforms on the vulnerable can be mitigated by ongoing efforts to strengthen social safety nets.“The Central Bank of Sri Lanka should continue to manage monetary policy prudently, in the face of price shocks and market volatility. Efforts to build up international reserves should be sustained, with exchange rate flexibility as the first line of defense in response to volatile global capital flows. Upgrading the central bank law will be instrumental for the new inflation targeting framework. While financial soundness indicators remain stable, continued credit growth in the real estate sector warrants close monitoring. “The authorities should step up implementation of structural reforms, with a focus on fostering gradual trade liberalization and the investment climate, developing a natural disaster risk financing framework, and promoting gender equality in the labor market together with well-targeted social safety nets.” The Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has completed the fourth review of Sri Lanka’s economic performance under the program supported by a three-year Extended Arrangement under the Extended Fund Facility (EFF) arrangement.Completion of the review enables the disbursement of the equivalent of SDR 177.774 million (about US$ 252 million), bringing total disbursements under the arrangement to the equivalent of SDR 715.23 million (about US$ 1,014 million). Sri Lanka’s three-year extended arrangement was approved on June 3, 2016, in the amount of about SDR 1.1 billion (about US$1.5 billion, or 185 percent of quota in the IMF at that time of approval of the arrangement). read more

The Rembetiko Story revived for Oakleigh fest

first_imgThe Rembetiko Story – presented by Manasis School of Greek Dance and Culture – will be revived at the Oakleigh Music Festival for a one-off performance. The school director Dimosthenis Manasis, told Neos Kosmos he “was overwhelmed by the success of the first presentation of The Rembetiko Story under the auspice of Oakleigh Grammar. “What was great to see was the amount of young Greeks who were studying VCE, and took a keen interest in the topic so they could present the history of rembetiko music for their oral examination,” Manasis says. The Rembetiko Story was first established when the students of the school took a keen interest in not only the intricate melodies and rhythms of rembetika, but the historical and political events surrounding that era. The school got together to devise a way to tell its story. In the performance, an 11 piece band will present the music of Greek urban blues in the live cabaret style bouzoukia. Alongside a cast of actors, dancers and musicians, the concert will present close to 30 songs from bilingual Greek / Turkish melodies, to the famous Zembekiko Tis Evdokias, some of which were written and played throughout the darkest days of Greece’s history.When asked the secret to the shows success, Manasis was quick to point out two things. “The phenomenal talent of our 11 piece band, our actors and the entire cast and crew,” he says with certainty, “secondly, the astounding amount of plain and simple hard, honest, and genuine work that goes into all of our productions. Upon writing the entire show, I deliberately set very, very high standards for the entire cast and crew – including myself – to work towards.” Outlining the origins, definition, identity, themes and connotations, historical background, musical styles, the three periods of rembetika – including the famed “Golden Era”, famous musicians and singers, substance abuse, the onset of censorship, the demise, influences and further development into laika style music and its revival, The Rembetiko Story covers everything. Manasis says it’s an absolute “privilege” to bring the show back a second time round after the overwhelming success of the first one, that had to turn away 400 people two weeks before the event and says this event promises to be a sell-out again. “I would like to thank all the performers and their families for their participation, patience and understanding with all the pressure and stress involved with presenting these works, and of course, the people – Greek and non-Greeks alike – who all support not only this show, but all events and performances we stage throughout the year. “It really is a great feeling to be a part of a community like ours, and its an honour to have the responsibility and to have trust and respect of our followers to appropriately present and represent the Greek culture, be it a small snapshot of our history- in its darkest days.” The Rembetiko Story – a journey through the birth, development and glory of Greek urban blues music is on at the Oakleigh Mechanics Hall, 142 – 144 Drummond Street, Oakleigh on Friday 9 March. Tickets are $10.00, for ticket and event information visit manasisdance.com.au. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

GB Port Authority given new milestones with extension of concessions

Hon. Perry Christie outlines what the PLP Administration wants to see in an extended Hawksbill Creek Agreement.PM Christie told the House of Assembly that he will give the Grand Bahama Port Authority an extension to its concessions as the managers of Freeport, but that it is hinged on a number of factors, including that within one year the company has to find an international investor, who can purchase majority ownership of the GBPA so that they can meet their developer commitments. The GB Development Company, also known as DEVCO has to submit a master plan for the island in six months and now the Central Government says it wants a seat at the boardroom table and the Bahamas government wants to have the right to appeal GBPA decisions. The country’s leader also wants to see the GBPA less involved in regulatory roles in Freeport; calling on them to no longer be involved in determining electricity policies and airport charges and fees, for example. PM Christie wants greater transparency, stronger relations with the GBPA and better incentives for inward investment. He said, and I quote: “It is for me to observe that it is now sixty years since the HCA and its enabling legislation came into being. The world and The Bahamas have changed a lot since then, and so have competition and international best practices. No longer can an entity like GBPA be licensor and licensee, regulator and investor with no rights of appeal by licensees, without inherent conflicts and varying levels of dissatisfaction.”The Bahamas Government is proposing an extension of the Hawksbill Creek Agreement with reviews at five year intervals; you can get details of this review process at: www.hcareview.org.last_img read more

Photo: Prothom AloFormer Awami League minister and independent candidate from Tangail-4 constituency Abdul Latif Siddique’s motorcade came under attack during campaign on Sunday.Latif Siddiqui alleged that supporters of Awami League candidate there Hasan Imam Khan carried out the attack in the afternoon.Latif, a former presidium member of the AL, staged a sit-in demonstration in front of Tangail deputy commissioner’s office, in protest against the attack and sought punishment of the attackers.He allehed that a group of AL men led by Gohaliabari union parishad chairman Hazrat Ali Talukder swooped on his motorcade when he was carrying out campaign.At one stage of the incident, Latif Siddiqui and his supporters took shelter at former UP chairmen Mohir Uddin’s house, where they were attacked for the second time.At least four vehicles of the motorcade were vandalised and several activists of Latif Siddique got injured in the attack.Latif then went to Tangail town and submitted a written complaint to the deputy commission who is the returning officer.

RedHat reverts patches to mitigate Spectre Variant 2

first_imgRedHat reverts patches to mitigate Spectre Variant 2 by Mike Turcotte-McCusker on January 21, 2018 in Linux – 25 commentsCVE-2017-5715 (variant 2), also known as Spectre, as most people know by now is a serious problem affecting a large number of computers across the world.RedHat previously released patches to mitigate this issue, however, in a rather controversial move, has decided to roll back these changes after complaints about systems failing to boot with the new patches, and instead is now recommending that, “subscribers contact their CPU OEM vendor to download the latest microcode/firmware for their processor.”Many people have taken to saying that Redhat has, “Washed their hands” of the problem, dumping it onto the responsibility of others to handle instead.The full statement about the recommendation can be found here; it saysRed Hat Security is currently recommending that subscribers contact their CPU OEM vendor to download the latest microcode/firmware for their processor.The latest microcode_ctl and linux-firmware packages from Red Hat do not include resolutions to the CVE-2017-5715 (variant 2) exploit. Red Hat is no longer providing microcode to address Spectre, variant 2, due to instabilities introduced that are causing customer systems not to boot.The latest microcode_ctl and linux-firmware packages are reverting these unstable microprocessor firmware changes to versions that were known to be stable and well tested, released before the Spectre/Meltdown embargo lift date on Jan 3rd. Customers are advised to contact their silicon vendor to get the latest microcode for their particular processor.This means that virtually every person running Redhat, CentOS, or others such as Scientific Linux that are based on Redhat, now are left without a means to mitigate Spectre Variant 2, unless they contact their hardware manufacturers on a case-by-case basis, which could cause a massive shift of people/companies to potentially move their servers to a different OS in the future.Granted, many may do as recommended as well, only time will tell, but the move has left a slightly sour taste among many users throughout the community.According to the Redhat Linux homepage, they are the “The world’s leading enterprise Linux platform,” so knowing that they have the most significant market share out of the primary enterprise distributions, means that potentially millions of customers are now being left to handle the situation themselves.Now you: What is your opinion on the move by Redhat to leave their paying subscribers to fend for themselves on this one? Are you a Redhat user, and if so, will you be staying and fixing it yourself, or will you take other measures? Let us know in the comments!SummaryArticle NameRedHat reverts patches to mitigate Spectre Variant 2DescriptionRedHat previously released patches to mitigate this issue, however, in a rather controversial move, has decided to roll back these changes after complaints about systems failing to boot with the new patches, and instead is now recommending that, “subscribers contact their CPU OEM vendor to download the latest microcode/firmware for their processor.”Author Mike TurcottePublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more
