More Crown Attorneys for Internet Child Exploitation Cases

first_imgNova Scotia children will be better protected with the hiring of two new Crown attorneys to prosecute internet child exploitation cases. “Internet child exploitation is on the rise and we are dedicating the necessary resources to combat this crime and protect our children,” said Attorney General and Minister of Justice Diana Whalen. “We are committed to helping those who need it the most.” The Nova Scotia Public Prosecution Service received a $192,000 increase in funding as part of Budget 2016-2017, bringing its total budget to more than $23 million. This will allow the Public Prosecution Service to expand its current complement to four Crown attorneys dedicated to cybercrime prosecutions. The establishment of these two new Crown attorney positions also fulfils one of the recommendations of the Independent Review of the Police and Prosecution Response to the Rehtaeh Parsons Case submitted last fall by Murray Segal, former chief prosecutor and deputy attorney general of Ontario. The new Crown attorneys are expected to be in place by the fall.last_img read more

60 of Current Governments Time Dedicated to Reforming Past Problems Minister

Rabat – 60 percent of the current government’s time is dedicated to reforming the past government’s problems, said Lahcen Daoudi, Minster of Higher Education, Scientific Research, and Training.During a public session in The House of Advisors assigned to estimate Morocco’s public policies on wealth production, Daoudi said the current government’s slow progress [to step forward remarkably] is attributed to a series of obstructions and challenging accumulations caused by previous governments.Daoudi added that citizens ask why the government’s achievement is slow, without being aware that the government cannot accelerate on a rugged road destroyed by the previous governments. The Minister highlighted the major important role that the current government played under the supervision of the ruling Party of Justice and Development (PJD).“Don’t say that we have not done anything in the higher educational sector. You should compare it to the 10 previous years to notice the difference,” Daoudi said.Daoudi went on to add that the number of beds in Moroccan university dormitories increased from 33,000 to 55,000 under the current government. To contrast to the former government’s achievements, from 2001 to 2011 the number increased only from 32,000 to 33,000.Daoudi highlighted the further increase of graduate students during the past five years. He said that between 2015 and 2016, the number of graduates reached 102,000, unlike in 2012, when the number of graduates was 71,000. read more

Transfer of excombatants major step for peace in northeast DR Congo –

5 November 2007The United Nations peacekeeping mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) has transferred 16 former commanders of Ituri armed groups to Kinshasa, calling it a major step in consolidating peace in the northeastern part of the country. The transfer, which took place on Saturday by a special UN flight, was the result of 18 months of intense negotiations with the de facto leaders of the three remaining Ituri Armed Groups, according to the mission, known as MONUC. The former militia leaders include Cobra Matata of Front de Resistance Patriotique en Ituri (FRPI); Peter Karim of Front des Nationalistes Integrationnistes (FNI); and Mathieu Ngudjolo of Mouvement Revolutionnaire Congolais (MRC). They were escorted from Bunia by Colonel Abdalah Nyembo, second in command in Ituri for the national armed forces – known as FARDC – and Ntumba Luaba, head of the national disarmament, demobilization and reintegration programme. “The departure of these leaders from Bunia marks a dramatic step forward in the consolidation of the peace process in Ituri and signals a possibility of ending more than eight years of conflict,” the Mission stated. The 16 will receive training in Kinshasa while the majority of their disarmed fighters – about 300 men – will join the “brassage” retraining programme for ex-combatants in the town of Kitona to become part of integrated FARDC brigades. Another 44 Ituri ex-combatants were flown by the Congolese government to the Kitona brassage site on Saturday. read more

Suncor restarting Edmonton refinery after power outage stalls production

CALGARY — Suncor Energy Inc. says it is in the process of restarting production at its Edmonton refinery after it was knocked offline by a power outage on Tuesday afternoon.The company, which owns Petro-Canada stations across Canada, is warning residents near the facility on the eastern outskirts of the provincial capital that they may see more visible flaring as restarting progresses.Spokeswoman Nicole Fisher says there were no injuries as a result of the power disruption.Suncor shut down the entire 142,000-barrel-per-day oilsands-fed Edmonton refinery all at once for maintenance for the first time in its 67-year history during the second quarter this year.The maintenance took longer than expected and resulted in fuel supply shortages at some Petro-Canada stations in Western Canada.Suncor reported its overall refinery crude throughput was 344,100 bpd in the three months ended June 30, down from 435,500 bpd in the year-earlier period, mainly due to maintenance performed at all four of its refineries.Companies mentioned in this story: (TSX:SU) read more

Interest rate rise piles pressure on new car market

July new car market down 4.1 per cent to 168,015 units Year to August total down 4.2 per cent to 1,409,936 units Market shift towards diesel continues with registrations up 2.4 per cent this year Commenting on the July 2006 new car registration data, SMMT chief executive, Christopher Macgowan said, ‘Consumer confidence has clearly taken a knock in the last 18 months and yesterday’s announcement from the Bank of England will not help a weakened new car market. Two factors have kept some buyers away from showrooms this year. The first is the effect of interest rate rises, the second is soaring fuel costs. The latter affects 30 million car owners and is also driving more to consider the benefits of switching to diesel power when buying a new car.’DownloadClick to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) read more

Cian Healy cited for bite after Lions first Aussie runout

first_imgCIAN HEALY’S LIONS Tour is in the balance this evening.The Leinster forward has been cited for an alleged bite during the British and Irish Lions’ comprehensive win over Western Force at the start of their Australian tour this afternoon.The all-star visitors swamped a second-string Force team nine tries to two, led by a brace from stand-in captain Brian O’Driscoll and a peerless 11-from-11 place-kicking performance by Welsh fullback Leigh Halfpenny. However, the training-style romp, widely expected after the hosts rested most of their best players, ended on a sour note with Healy stretchered off and also faced disciplinary proceedings.The tourists’ fears have been justified this evening as officials have confirmed the Dubliner will face a citing commission at 10.30am Irish time tomorrow.Citing commissioner Freek Burger took a statement from Force scrum half Brett Sheehan, who had claimed in the first half that he was bitten by Healy during a melee. Video replays at the time were inconclusive. Previous sanctions for biting have been heavy but Healy could be facing a spell on the sidelines anyway after going off with suspected ankle ligament damage and being sent to hospital for X-rays.“I know much about it as you know,” Lions head coach Warren Gatland told reporters afterwards. “I think the citing guy has had a look at it and he can’t find anything.”The RFU have confirmed that Alex Corbisiero has been called up to replace Healy meanwhile, meaning he leaves their tour of Argentina.“We’re delighted for Alex,” said England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster. “It’s very pleasing for him after he missed the Six Nations through injury and he goes with our full support and blessing. All the England players and management couldn’t be more pleased for him to get this opportunity.”England have no plans to add a replacement to their squad at this stage.Burger was also investigating claims that Ireland scrum half Conor Murray had trampled Force youngster Ed Stubbs, meanwhile, in what could be a costly evening for the visitors ahead of the Test series with Australia.© AFP, 2013The big winners and losers from the Lions’ western show of ForceIrish provinces learn Heineken Cup pool rivals as European battle lines drawnlast_img read more

CES 2012 Oregon Scientific présente la minicaméra la plus légère du marché

first_imgCES 2012: Oregon Scientific présente la minicaméra la plus légère du marchéPrésentée au salon du CES 2012 et ne pesant seulement que 65 g, la ATCM Mini Action Video Camera d’Oregon Scientific promet des vidéos en toute circonstance et dans n’importe quelle situation. Elle filme en 720p à 30 images par secondes et peu prendre des photos en 1,3 MP. Étant donné qu’elle fait la longueur d’un doigt, elle n’a que trois boutons : Power, Photo, Film. Un bon point puisque son usage sera ainsi extrêmement simplifié. La minicaméra pourra embarquer une carte MicroSD plafonnant à 32GB mais elle sera sans doute vendue avec moins. La batterie  rechargeable permet de filmer 1.5 heures de vidéo. La connectique passe par du miniUsb et du TV-out Jack.À lire aussiLa Descriptive Camera : quand une image se tranforme en texteCertes son prix n’est pas un poids-plume : 149 dollars (118 euros), mais tant de performances dans un espace si réduit, cela donne tout de même envie. On peut même craindre qu’un objet aussi petit soit peu pratique à manier, et c’est pourquoi Oregon Scientific propose également, comme avec la plupart de ses caméras mini, une fixation pour le cas où vous tomberiez sur un pied de photographe.Détail intéressant, la caméra est waterproof et peut supporter jusqu’à 18 mètres de profondeur… néanmoins qui oserait vraiment, comme le suggère Oregon Scientific, mettre son appareil à 149 dollars dans la mer ? Pour 20 dollars (15 euros) de plus, il est moins risqué de l’attacher sur la fixation pour casque. Le 15 janvier 2012 à 12:45 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Lunar Prospecting Plans in the Works

first_img While you ponder what to pack for an extended stay on the Moon, scientists are scrambling to find sustainable ways for humans to thrive on Earth’s satellite.The most obvious: Mining water ice at the poles.Last month, a team of Japanese scientists identified the mineral moganite within a lunar meteorite found in the desert of northwest Africa.Similar to quartz, moganite is a crystal of silicon dioxide that requires water to grow. Its sheer existence, according to Tohoku University professor Masahiro Kayama, who led the recent discovery, “strongly implies that there is water activity on the Moon.”The first instance of the mineral in lunar rocks lends to Kayama’s theory that, deep under the lunar surface—protected from the sun—is a treasure trove of water ice.If the team is correct, and there is an accumulation of H2O in the soil, lunar explorers would have easier access to the resource, which can be converted into oxygen, liquid water, and rocket fuel.Thus raising the chances the Moon will host human settlement and infrastructure within the next few decades.The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) is reportedly planning two missions to hunt for and collect Moon water in 10 years.But before NASA, Jeff Bezos, or anyone else can colonize the planetoid, scientists and engineers need more data about lunar ice deposits—specifically their distribution, concentration, quantity, disposition, depth, geotechnical properties, and other characteristics, Space.com reported.“We are surprisingly close to mining on the Moon,” Philip Metzger, a planetary scientist at the University of Central Florida’s Florida Space Institute in Orlando, told the news site.“Lunar science becomes far more effective when we depend on the in-situ resources to support the science,” he continued. “I think this confluence of interests makes it likely we will see lunar mining in about a decade.”Which gives scientists less than ten years to determine the lunar ice’s form—”dirty snow,” “gravel-sized chunks of pure ice,” or some other alternative—and develop a method for mining it.“We need to have rovers driving around and drilling on the Moon as quickly as possible to resolve this,” Metzger said.And he’s not alone in his thinking.Colorado School of Mines researcher Hunter Williams, Chris Dreyer, and George Sowers are planning a low-cost mission to uncover the extent of lunar water resources using the newly developed “thermal mining” extraction technique, which turns water ice into wine rocket fuel.NASA has been studying ways to mine the Moon for water since 2014, when it developed two mission concepts: Resource Prospector Mission and Lunar Flashlight, the latter expected to launch in November.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Together Again Providence Academy hosts reunion on Mother Joseph Day

Now this is looking good.”Buck and Sweeney were among 150 other alumni, their relatives and others in attendance at what will soon be an annual event called Together Again.last_img read more

Minister Asks Students to Provide Solutions to Challenges at Launch of Sustainable

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, February 3, 2018 – Nassau – Minister of Transport and Local Government, the Hon. Frankie Campbell asked students to prepare themselves to serve their communities and provide solutions to challenges.  The Minister was speaking during the launch of the Sustainable Nassau Project held at the Harry C. Moore Library of the University of The Bahamas on Thursday, February 1.  The event was held under the theme, ‘Empowered People, Revitalized City.”“You have the vision, the energy and the exposure necessary to make a tremendous impact on the way we do business here in The Bahamas.  Through the IDB’s work with the Office of the Prime Minister, we have invited the world-renowned Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to lead you through a process of solving a real challenge of your choosing.  I urge you to take advantage of this amazing opportunity,” said Mr. Campbell“Despite what my generation may tell you, your impatience can in fact serve you well as you demand action and results at a faster pace than has been traditionally accepted.  I implore you to be curious, innovative and inventive.  Take advantage of the greatest resource you have here at the University of The Bahamas: collective knowledge and creativity, to build the modern Bahamas you want to see.” The Minister said that in late 2017, the Ministry of Education and the Over-the-Hill project within the Office of the Prime Minister distributed over 100 tablets to the Willard Patton Pre-School in the Bain Town area.  The aim of the project, he said, was to use technology to improve how education is delivered.“Thus far the program is already delivering positive results.  This represents the beginning of implementing the Smart City Solutions outlined in the Sustainable Nassau Action Plan,” said Mr. Campbell.  He said that as the country moves to become a “smarter” country, it is necessary to identify the innovations that are needed to take the country there.“Perhaps an app that provides drivers with real-time information on traffic and parking availability.  Or an app that disseminates emergency alerts and critical information to mobile phones within an impacted geographic area.  How about a central command center to coordinate it all?  Think of the time you could save by having kiosks located throughout our islands that facilitated driver’s license renewals, and payment of traffic tickets.  All of these things exist and can become a reality here in The Bahamas,” said the Minister.He also spoke of the need for, and how it would assist in, the proper and equitable management of resources.“Heavily central government structures have often proven themselves too slow and too bureaucratic to adapt and take advantage of these innovations.  Therefore, if we are to be successful in making drastic improvements to the quality of life of our citizens and residents, we must empower people to be part of this process of change.  The communities that are to be most impacted must have the greatest say and greatest ownership of the prescribed solutions to their problems.  The only way to make this happen is through new, more localized, governance models.” -5310Minister of Transport and Local Government, the Hon.
