Pipeline decision too close to chastise BC at western premiers meeting Notley

first_imgEDMONTON – Alberta Premier Rachel Notley says while other western premiers meeting in Yellowknife will be talking about how to spend money, she’ll be working in Alberta figuring out how to earn it.Notley says she is not attending the meeting on Wednesday because her time is better spent making sure the Trans Mountain pipeline project goes ahead.She says Alberta needs to be able to pay for important programs to be discussed at the meeting such as pharmacare.She says it’s not business as usual because B.C. Premier John Horgan is trying to shut down the pipeline and take $15 billion out of the Canadian economy.She says it might be worth going to the meeting to chastise Horgan if a decision on Trans Mountain were still a long way off, but the deadline is too close now for her to do that.Owner Kinder Morgan has set May 31 as the date by which it needs to have enough certainty to proceed with the pipeline’s expansion.Alberta sees the pipeline as key to moving bitumen from the province to the coast and from there to lucrative overseas markets.last_img read more

Cheat day during keto diet damages blood vessels

first_imgHaving just a plate of fries or a bottle of soda while following a ‘keto diet’ may damage your blood vessels, say scientists who warn against going for a ‘cheat day’ while following the popular weight loss regime. The ketogenic or keto diet has become very common for weight loss or to manage diseases like type 2 diabetes. “It consists of eating foods rich in fats, moderate in protein, but very low in carbohydrates and it causes the body to go into a state called ketosis,” said Jonathan Little, associate professor at University of British Columbia (UBC) in Canada. Also Read – An income drop can harm brainThe diet can be very effective because once the body is in ketosis and starved for its preferred fuel glucose, the body’s chemistry changes and it begins to aggressively burn its fat stores, Little said in a statement. This leads to weight loss and can reverse the symptoms of diseases like Type 2 diabetes. The often embraced ‘cheat day’ is a common theme in many diets. However, researchers found just one 75-gramme dose of glucose – the equivalent a large bottle of soda or a plate of fries – while on a high fat, low carbohydrate diet can lead to damaged blood vessels. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma Award”We were interested in finding out what happens to the body’s physiology once a dose of glucose is reintroduced,” said Cody Durrer, doctoral student at UBC. “Since impaired glucose tolerance and spikes in blood sugar levels are known to be associated with an increased risk in cardiovascular disease, it made sense to look at what was happening in the blood vessels after a sugar hit,” said Durrer. For their test, the researchers recruited nine healthy young males and had them consume a 75-gramme glucose drink before and after a seven-day high fat, low carbohydrate diet. The diet consisted of 70 per cent fat, 10 per cent carbohydrates and 20 per cent protein, similar to that of a modern ketogenic diet. “We were originally looking for things like an inflammatory response or reduced tolerance to blood glucose. What we found instead were biomarkers in the blood suggesting that vessel walls were being damaged by the sudden spike in glucose,” said Durrer. The most likely culprit for the damage is the body’s own metabolic response to excess blood sugar, which causes blood vessel cells to shed and possibly die. “Even though these were otherwise healthy young males, when we looked at their blood vessel health after consuming the glucose drink, the results looked like they might have come from someone with poor cardiovascular health,” said Little. The researchers point out that with only nine individuals included in the study, more work is needed to verify their findings, but that the results should give those on a keto diet pause when considering a cheat day. “My concern is that many of the people going on a keto diet – whether it’s to lose weight, to treat Type 2 diabetes, or some other health reason – may be undoing some of the positive impacts on their blood vessels if they suddenly blast them with glucose,” Little said. “Especially if these people are at a higher risk for cardiovascular disease in the first place. Our data suggests a ketogenic diet is not something you do for six days a week and take Saturday off,” he added.last_img read more

Farming Job Opportunities in France Draw Crowds of Moroccan Men to

Rabat – Moroccan men with yellow envelopes flocked in their hundreds to a “youth center” in Oulad Tayma, a city in the Taroudant province on Wednesday, September 11. The march was not a protest but a bid for job contracts in France.Morocco’s National Agency for Employment and Skills (ANAPEC) opened the opportunity to youth aged 25 and 45. If successful, the candidates will get a work contract in France for citrus fruit picking.Videos and photos showing crowds of men of different ages in front of the youth center have gone viral. Men from different places in the Souss-Massa region flocked to the region, hoping for a chance. The requirements stipulate that the candidates should have experience in farming and been in good health to secure a contract. Under the contract, successful candidates will receive a monthly salary of € 1,525 for 39 hours per week.Candidates will have to pay for their own transport to France.“The situation is weak in Morocco, I came to see if I will get a chance to travel to work,” one of the candidates told the press.“Look at all these youth, all came here looking for an opportunity. France, France, open the borders for us,” he shouted.Another video showed candidates jumping over the wall to enter the youth center in order to submit their application.Mohamed Dabach, a journalist from the region wrote: “Crowds of young from Oulad  Tayma wishing to emigrate France exposed the reality of marginalization and misery.”Unemployment is on the rise in Morocco, especially in rural areas. Morocco’s High Commission for Planning (HCP) said in February that 1,168 people were unemployed in 2018.Social disparities in Morocco have raised concerns, urging King Mohammed VI to call for a new development model to reduce inequality.In a speech for Revolution Day in August, the monarch called on the youth to resort to self-employment, agriculture, and vocational training.The King insisted that a focus on a vocational training approach could serve as a concrete solution to reduce unemployment among Morocco’s youth, not only in rural areas but also in urban areas. read more

In Middle East Ban urges steppedup efforts to resolve IsraeliPalestinian conflict

1 February 2012Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today called on Israelis and Palestinians to take steps that will build trust and ensure an environment conducive to sustained negotiations, voicing his hope that the nascent talks begun last month between the two sides will continue. “This is a critical moment for Israel and the region,” Mr. Ban said in remarks during a joint press conference with President Shimon Peres in Jerusalem. This is Mr. Ban’s fourth visit to Israel as Secretary-General, and it is part of his wider visit to the Middle East that includes stops in Jordan and the occupied Palestinian territories in an effort to help move the Israeli-Palestinian peace process forward. Israeli and Palestinian negotiators began preparatory talks at the start of last month in Amman under the facilitation of King Abdullah II of Jordan and that country’s Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh.In his meeting with Mr. Peres, the Secretary-General stressed the need for positive actions on the ground to contribute to an environment conducive to successful negotiations. He also discussed the status of the peace process with Israel’s Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman.In remarks prepared for a press encounter with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Mr. Ban said he is encouraged that Israelis and Palestinians have re-engaged in direct talks and remained hopeful that direct, frequent exchanges between the parties will continue.“I also hope that Israel will be forthcoming with its own concrete proposals on territory and security, as called for by the Quartet [the diplomatic grouping consisting of the UN, European Union, Russia and the United States], in order to reach agreement on all final status issues before the end of this year. The success of the Amman talks is in the interest of both Israelis and Palestinians.”The Secretary-General commended Mr. Netanyahu’s commitment to a two-State solution, adding that this is the moment to display further leadership to ensure that negotiations continue.“A credible political horizon is imperative for the emergence of a Palestinian State living in peace and security side-by-side with Israel,” he said. “The consequences of inaction would be grave for either side.”Following his meeting with Mahmoud Abbas, President of the Palestinian Authority, Mr. Ban stated that a viable Palestinian State is long overdue.“I continue to believe that a two-State solution can be achieved – and that the way to achieve it is through negotiations that resolve permanent status issues such as borders, security, refugees and Jerusalem,” he said in the remarks prepared for the press conference in Ramallah with Mr. Abbas.He also commended the Palestinian leader for the State-building efforts of the past several years and discussed with him ongoing tensions, including continued settlement activity and settler violence.While in Ramallah, the Secretary-General also met with Prime Minister Salam Fayyad and Foreign Minister Ryad Malki, as well as with Palestinian civil society groups and graduates of the UN’s annual media training programme for Palestinian journalists. read more

MedReleaf Aurora confirm discussions but say no agreement

MedReleaf Corp. and Aurora Cannabis Inc. shares were briefly halted Thursday and resumed trading after the companies announced they have held discussions, but no agreement has been reached.Trading resumed mid-afternoon after being halted “pending news” for several hours.The companies issued press releases saying they were aware of media reports that MedReleaf was seeking a buyer.Citing anonymous sources, The Globe and Mail reported that Markham, Ont.,-based MedReleaf was putting itself on the market and that Edmonton-based Aurora had submitted a friendly offer.On Thursday afternoon, MedReleaf released a statement in response to a request by Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC), saying it was aware of a news article speculating about a potential transaction involving Aurora.“MedReleaf does not publicly comment on unusual market activity, rumours or speculation in the marketplace or any potential transaction unless, and until, a binding legal agreement to effect that transaction has been signed,” it said.It confirmed that it engages “from time to time” in discussions with other industry players, including Aurora Cannabis, “regarding various alternatives.”“The company has not entered into an agreement to effect any particular transaction, and there can be no assurance that such discussions will result in any such agreement,” MedReleaf said.Aurora also released a statement in response to a request from IIROC regarding reports involving a potential transaction with MedReleaf.“The company does confirm that it engages in discussions with industry participants from time to time, including MedReleaf,” Aurora said in a statement on Thursday afternoon. “At this time the company confirms there is no agreement, understanding or arrangement with respect to any transaction with MedReleaf.”Consolidation in the Canadian marijuana sector has been accelerating as the country prepares to legalize cannabis for recreational use later this year.Aurora recently completed its acquisition of Saskatoon-based licensed producer CanniMed Therapeutics after striking a $1.1 billion stock-and-cash deal in January.In February, rival licensed producer Aphria Inc. completed its acquisition of B.C.-based Broken Coast Cannabis Inc., a transaction valued at more than $200-million in stock and cash. read more

Under Moyes Manchester United Wasnt Particularly Good — Or Lucky

Manchester United fired manager David Moyes with four matches left in the English Premier League season, the club announced on Tuesday. His removal — after only 10 months on the job — left Moyes more than 25 seasons shy of the tenure of his predecessor, Sir Alex Ferguson. Going by results, that’s understandable: Ferguson’s United sides won England’s top league 13 times, while United under Moyes was languishing at seventh in the league, eliminated from the lucrative, Europe-wide Champions League for the coming season.Although Ferguson selected him as his successor, Moyes was always going to have big shoes to fill. Yet less noticed was that Ferguson had been, in his final season, lucky as well as good. By several crucial stats, United wasn’t as good last year as it seemed in winning the league by 11 points. The team has been worse by all these measures under Moyes. But the club has also been far less lucky.Soccer analysts, inspired by ice hockey’s Corsi stat, have begun to examine teams’ ability to create and prevent shots. Teams’ share of all shots taken, and their share of all shots on target, are far more predictive of future success than teams’ percentage of shots converted or of opponents’ shots saved, as soccer analyst James Grayson has shown.Last season, United was far from leading the Premier League in creating the lion’s share of shots, or shots on target. United ranked eighth of 20 teams in proportion of shots, and seventh in proportion of shots on target, according to Grayson; and seventh and fourth, respectively, according to Benjamin Pugsley, who uses a slightly different set of underlying numbers. (Soccer doesn’t yet have completely standardized stats — or, as, Pugsley puts it, “Football and numbers is really new.”)How, then, did Manchester United nonetheless lead the league in goal differential? By leading the league in shooting percentage and placing fourth in save percentage. Grayson calls the sum of those two percentages, multiplied by 1,000, PDO (after its hockey name), and he’s shown that it has essentially no value in predicting future results. United led the Premier League in PDO by a big margin last year. It did the same the year before, which at the time prompted Grayson to forecast a United decline — a year too early, as it turned out.So United’s path to the league title last year was a lucky one; its performance didn’t predict continued success this season. Sure enough, United’s PDO has declined from league-leading to seventh best, and that, combined with less-precipitous declines in share of shots and shots on target, has led to the club outscoring opponents by less than half a goal per game, compared to more than a goal per game last season.Not only did United convert shots, and prevent shots, at unusually high — and unsustainable — rates last season. The club also won more matches than expected based on its goal differential. United won the league by 11 points over Manchester City last season. It also had 12 more points than expected based on its goals scored and allowed. This year, it’s getting about as many points as expected based on goal differential.Was Ferguson just lucky last season, or was he able to conjure consistently high levels of shooting accuracy and goalkeeping even after his club’s edge in shots had eroded? On the one hand, his United clubs sustained high levels of PDO during his tenure. On the other hand, there’s some out-of-sample evidence from United’s Champions League performance, this season and last season.In Ferguson’s last year at the helm, United played eight Champions League games, yielded nine more shots than it took and outscored opponents by two goals. Real Madrid eliminated United in the round of 16. In this season’s Champions League, under Moyes, United allowed 32 more shots than it attempted, yet United still outscored opponents by eight goals, advancing to the quarterfinal stage.These results suggest United’s overachievement in the Premier League last season was due more to luck than to anything Ferguson did. read more

Volunteers sought for study on stress levels among dementia caregivers

first_imgRESEARCHERS ARE LOOKING to recruit 300 people for a study on stress levels among those caring for a spouse or partner suffering from dementia.The three-year project is being being undertaken by Trinity College’s Institute for Neuroscience. The ‘De-Stress’ study will look at the stress levels and cognitive functions of dementia caregivers.It’s hoped the findings will lead to new ways to improve quality of life for both the carer and the sufferer.Informal caregivers over the age of 50 who provide care for their spouse or partner at home are eligible to take part in the study, which is part funded by the Alzheimer Society of Ireland.“You can’t treat the person with dementia without taking the caregiver into consideration,” Trinity Professor Brian Lawlor said.“Ultimately, we want to improve the quality of life of the person with dementia and their caregiver, allowing the person with dementia to be able to stay at home with a good quality of life for as long as possible.”There are currently almost 42,00 people in Ireland with dementia. Of that number, over 26,000 live at home.Anyone seeking more information, or who may be interested in taking part in the study, is being asked to contact project coordinator Dr Maria Pertl.Read: “We are putting our trust in the HSE” – junior doctorsRead: HSE signs agreement to improve palliative carelast_img read more

Windows RT 81 available and its a surprisingly big deal

first_imgMicrosoft’s big news this week was, of course, the official release of Windows 8.1, but what was less discussed was the fact that Windows RT had received the same update. Windows 8.1 RT is here, and it is a dramatic improvement over the previous iteration.Windows RT was supposed to be a big deal for a couple of reasons. First and foremost, it was consumer-grade Windows on ARM processors, something which had never happened before. It also meant affordable machines for users who simply wanted apps, IE and, Microsoft Office.Starting with the Surface RT, this experiment was less than successful out of the box. The experience was unpolished and Microsoft had compromised in a lot of the wrong places, at least as far as the demands of casual Windows users went. On top of this, Microsoft’s app store took a while to take off, which caused additional problems for users who were trying to compare the experience to iOS or Android. Stability and usability updates have come since then to help the overall experience, but the upgrade to Windows 8.1 has helped make RT devices feel like a whole new experience.Upgrading Windows RT to version 8.1 is just as simple as updating Windows 8 to 8.1. As long as you have your system up-to-date with security patches and your device is charged to at least 30% while connected to the wall, you’ll find the big purple tile in the Microsoft Store prompting you to update to the latest version of Windows. This means downloading and installing the file, which can take upwards of an hour depending on your internet connection. Microsoft allows you to wrap up any work you may have been doing while this download is happening, but afterwards the install will start and your RT device will be busy for a while. When you’re finally given a prompt, it is to set your account back up and give you a quick rundown of what is happening with this new version.Typically when you have an OS upgrade followed immediately by new hardware — specifically the Surface 2, which comes out next week — the first generation of hardware tends to suffer. All too often the new model shines while the previous model has most of the same features but is left with a sub-optimal experience. (Just ask anyone with an iPad mini how their tablet is holding up after the iOS 7 update and you’ll see what I mean.) That’s not the case with the Surface RT and Windows RT 8.1.The Windows RT 8.1 update applies all of the same visual updates from the 8.1 update. You get the new Start Page with an actual Start button on the Desktop. You get split screen app support for any app that supports the feature, and you get the new Bing Smart Search. Every feature from Windows 8.1 made its way into 8.1 RT, at the same time, just as though they were a single OS.After the update performance on the Surface RT was not diminished — it actually improved. The animations when swiping through menus are very smooth. No matter how many apps you have pinned in Modern UI, it looks nice, and it’s very fast to navigate from the Start Page to the full app panel. Going back to the first time the Surface RT booted with the launch version of the OS, this is a huge step forward.Unfortunately, not all of RT’s apps have updated to really take advantage of 8.1’s goodness. Google Search and Netflix both still think the screen should split into thirds (the 8.0 method), leaving a lot of unused space when it is set to take half of the screen. Fortunately all of the Microsoft apps have updated already, so you can enjoy Skype or SmartGlass in each of the new multiscreen positions.Considering that Windows RT 8.1 is an update to part of Microsoft’s business that was clearly not successful, Microsoft has done a fine job keeping Windows RT and the Surface RT up to date. There’s no reason to expect these results would be any different for other RT devices, as many of them are running the same hardware as the Surface. This also shines a pleasant light on the next generation of RT devices, which will be running Tegra 4 and Qualcomm 600 — or better processors — starting with the release of the Surface 2 next week.last_img read more

Nemanja Matic makes surprise admission about United

first_imgManchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic has made a surprising admission about the team following their draw against Arsenal on Wednesday.Matic insists the United squad is currently low on confidence as they go through a poor season so far.Jose Mourinho’s United came back from a goal down on two separate occasions to earn a 2-2 draw with Arsenal at Old Trafford.“Both teams attacked,” said Matic, according to Mirror Football.“It was a great game for the supporters but I thought we deserved a point.”Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“Everyone knows the confidence is not high, but this is the fight that we have to show. Everyone is ready to play wherever the manager asks.”Meanwhile, United defender Chris Smalling said the players are well aware of their problems.“All of us know we are in a tough path of form and everyone is giving everything to help us through,” he said.“Everyone is digging in. We were on the front foot and pressing them because we know they like to play and I thought we were unlucky not to get the third goal.”last_img read more

La Center puts the brakes on speeding

first_imgIn La Center, where posted speed limits rarely exceed 35 mph, traffic citations went up 472 percent from 2011 to 2012. Police issued 504 notices of infraction, compared with 88 the year before.The figures may raise eyebrows or simple make you wonder why?Turns out, there’s no single, simple answer, but in September 2011 there was a clear turning point for enforcement efforts.At that time, the agency increased its coverage area to include Northwest La Center Road, a major thoroughfare from the city to the Interstate 5 junction. The speed on this 2-mile stretch is 50 mph and changes to 25 mph when motorists hit the bridge that crosses the East Fork Lewis River into La Center. It’s the most direct and well-traveled route into the city, and many motorists use it to get to northeastern parts of Clark County.In the last decade, La Center Road has been a site for traffic fatalities.Three years ago, in September 2010, a drunken driver crashed into a motorcycle, killing a La Center couple out for a ride. Six years before that, three people died when a car crossed the centerline and collided with an oncoming vehicle.When La Center Road entered the jurisdiction for city police, officers became more active in enforcement to thwart traffic fatalities and major injury accidents. Six officers and a sergeant patrol the city of 3,000.A majority of the city’s infractions are given out on this road, including the overwhelming majority of speeding infractions and tickets for failing to obey traffic control devices.last_img read more

BC coal port wins approval plans to open in fall 2015

first_imgBELLINGHAM — A coal port just across the Canadian border received a major approval Thursday and expects to open in fall 2015.Fraser Surrey Docks got a permit to build a facility on the Fraser River that will export about 4 million tons of coal a year, less than 10 percent of the coal that would be shipped from the proposed Gateway Pacific Terminal at Cherry Point.Gateway Pacific Terminal is undergoing environmental review and if approved would ship 48 million tons of coal annually starting in 2019.Fraser Surrey Docks got through a two-year environmental review that was more extensive than legally required, according to a press release from Port Metro Vancouver, which issued the permit.“We are confident that the project does not pose a risk to the environment or human health, and that the public is protected,” said Jim Crandles, director of planning and development for Port Metro Vancouver.Environmentalists in British Columbia said in a news release Thursday the review didn’t fully address residents’ concerns.“This decision is particularly devastating after Monday’s ruling by regulators in Oregon that rejected a very similar proposal to ship coal on the Columbia River,” Laura Benson, director of the Beyond Coal campaign at Dogwood Initiative, a B.C.-based environmental group, said in Thursday’s statement.last_img read more

State of emergency declared for six municipalities

first_imgChetumal, Q.R. — A state of emergency has been declared by federal officials for six municipalities in the state of Quintana Roo after two tropical waves passed over the region.The National Coordination of Civil Protection has issued an emergency declaration for six municipalities of Quintana Roo that will see emergency financial resources used to help restore the affected areas.During the five days of rain, more than 12 roadways were flooded and 700 people evacuated from their homes. While larger cities such as Cancun and Playa del Carmen were affected, a majority of the damaged occurred in the south.Civil Protection reports that the municipalities most affected by the flooding were Chetumal, Bacalar, Puerto Morelos, Felipe Carrillo Puerto, Lázaro Cárdenas and Tulum.They say that in Felipe Carrillo Puerto, the most affected community was Chumpón where more than 400 houses flooded and residents were left without electricity.They report even the Xpunhá lagoon overflowed from the excessive rains that arrived from the two back-to-back tropical waves.The Mexican army relocated people to various emergency shelters, some of whom were moved by rafts. A make-shift community kitchen was set up where army personnel were able to truck in supplies to help those evacuated from their homes.Adrián Martínez, director of Civil Protection in Quintana Roo, says that they are in the process of delivering more equipment to the affected areas, explaining that two motorized pumps are on their way to the municipality of Lázaro Cárdenas where, he explained, waters rose more than one meter.Along the Felipe Carrillo Puerto-Tulum federal highway, three flooded stretches still exist after the area was doused with approximately 225 mm of rain.“All the municipalities have been affected. A lot of attention is being given to roadways. There are many water crossings over the roads that require a lot of care by motorists who have to travel,” said Martínez.In Cancun, security protocols were activated in hotels with 12 avenues being affected.“We have firefighters and public services throughout the city. Right now, Civil Protection are in the process of damage verification,” said Luís Lomelí director of Civil Protection in Cancun.Brigades of the Infrastructure Protection and Emergency Response say they have already pumped more than 30 million liters of water in Kantunilkín, Holbox, Bacalar and Cobá, caused by heavy rains last weekend.In Lázaro Cárdenas, six colonies were flooded. On Holbox and Chiquilá, there was housing damage. In Chetumal, Tulum, Isla Mujeres and Puerto Morelos, the water is receding on its own.Classes are still suspended in four communities, however, all ports were reopened to navigation around the state. Adrián Martínez says that the state government  continues to attend to the most critical points affected by floods.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more
