Local Hero Darlene Joan Thomas passes at 75 years

first_imgTRURO, N.S. – Local hero Darlene Joan Thomas, passed away peacefully on Sunday, August 4, 2019, at Colchester East Hants Health Centre.During her time living in Fort St. John, on April 9, 2012, while working at Walmart as a greeter, the triple amputee who used a wheelchair for mobility saved the life of a man in his forties by performing CPR after he went into cardiac arrest. Thomas was awarded the BC Ambulance Hero Award for her actions on that day.Thomas would later go on to do a walk-a-thon at Pomeroy Sports Centre to raise money for Hope Air.

Chinas clampdown on lawyers and activists draws concern of UN human rights

“Civil society actors, from lawyers and journalists to NGO workers, have the right to carry out their work, and it is the States’ duty to support and protect them,” High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein said in a statement.He raised such cases with Chinese officials in Geneva, and acknowledged their efforts to clarify the matters at issue. However, their responses indicate that the authorities “too often reflexively confuse the legitimate role of lawyers and activists with threats to public order and security,” he said. Police have detained about 250 human rights lawyers, legal assistants, and activists across the country since a nationwide crackdown began last July, although many were subsequently released. Last month, 15 additional human rights lawyers were formally arrested, 10 of them for the crime of ‘subversion of State power,’ which carries a sentence of 15 years to life in prison. Among those facing that particular charge are leading human rights lawyers Li Heping and Wang Yu.Lawyers should never have to suffer prosecution or any other kind of sanctions or intimidation for discharging their professional duties as they play an essential role in protecting human rights and the rule of law, Mr. Zeid said, urging China to release all immediately and without conditions. At the same time, he welcomed news of the release of two labour activists detained in Guangdong in December 2015, but noted some of their colleagues remain in detention.Disappearances of Booksellers Mr Zeid said he was also concerned by recent cases of disappearances of booksellers from Hong Kong. Five people from Causeway Bay Books – a shop that publishes books critical of the Chinese Government – have gone missing since last October, including Lee Bo, a British national, who, according to the Hong Kong police, told his wife that he was assisting with an investigation. Gui Minhai, a Swedish national, reappeared last month when he was presented on China state television. Gui, who went missing while in Thailand last October, “confessed” to a crime in the city of Ningbo in 2003. Chinese authorities confirmed this month that the three other booksellers were also being held and investigated for “illegal activities” in China. The human rights chief urged China to ensure a fair and transparent procedure for these cases. He also expressed concern about the case of Peter Dahlin, a Swedish citizen and co-founder of the legal-aid NGO “Chinese Urgent Action Working Group.” He was detained in early January and was the first foreigner to be held on charges of “endangering state security.”Method of ‘Confession’Dahlin, who was expelled from China in January, was also presented on state television, where he “confessed” to having breached Chinese law, Mr. Zeid said, stressing that he finds this method of “confession”, extracted during incommunicado detention and publicized on national television, very worrying as it clearly violates the right to fair trial. As part of a series of new laws governing national security in China, the Government is currently drafting new legislation which, if adopted, may have far-reaching implications for NGOs.More and more Governments worldwide are using national security measures to restrict the rights to freedom of expression, association and peaceful assembly, and as a tool to target human rights defenders and silence critics, Mr. Zeid noted, emphasizing that security and human rights do not contradict each other, but rather complement and reinforce each other.At the same time, the human rights chief welcomed the recent enactment of a nation-wide law on domestic violence as an important step in strengthening legal protections for women in accordance with China’s international commitments. read more

Concerned by curbs on free expression in Thailand UN rights office calls

“Following the military coup in May 2014, severe restrictions on freedoms of expression and opinion and assembly have been in place through the use of criminal and military laws and orders, said spokesperson Ravina Shamdasani of the Geneva-based Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).She elaborated that restrictions spiked in the lead-up to this month’s Constitutional Referendum.“Overall, at least 1,300 people have been summoned, arrested or charged, and 1,629 civilians tried before the military courts,” the spokesperson explained. “Since June, at least 115 people have been arrested or charged under military orders, criminal codes and the Constitution Referendum Act for expressing their opinion on the draft constitution or reporting human rights violations, including torture,” she added.Twelve people arrested in the Chiang Mai Province in late July remained in detention, along with a student activist who was incarcerated on 6 August. The others were released, but have been charged or remained under investigation.“We urge Thailand to immediately drop all charges against political activists and human rights defenders, and to release those jailed for voicing dissent on the draft charter in the run-up to the referendum,” underscored Ms. Shamdasani. “We also call on the authorities to suspend the use of military courts and military orders in cases involving civilians.”She made clear of the urgency in implementing the measures as Thailand moves towards its 2017 election – as proposed in the military Government’s roadmap to restore democracy.The election next year represents an opportunity for Thailand to meet the commitment it made at the UN Human Rights Council during its Universal Periodic Review in May to respect freedom of expression and, therefore, guarantee a more inclusive and participatory process that involves all political parties, civil society and the media in an open and non-threatening environment. read more

Alex Salmond surprised an independence-supporting audience at his first Edinburgh Fringe show by introducing his “good pal” David Davis, the Brexit Secretary, as his first mystery guest.Mr Davis joked repeatedly during their chat that the former First Minister was out to “ruin” his career.In response to Mr Salmond’s suggestion that he was the bookies’ favourite to become the next Prime Minister, he insisted, referring to his defeat to David Cameron in the 2005 race for the top job, that he was a “very bad leadership campaigner”.He also joked during the show on Sunday – Alex Salmond…Unleashed – that he was in the “most dangerous place” if people were making him the favourite ahead of candidates including Jacob-Rees Mogg and Boris Johnson.Mr Salmond, who has sold out his two-week run at the Assembly Rooms after losing his Gordon seat in the General Election, introduced Mr Davis as “the next prime minister of the United Kingdom, perhaps the last prime minister of the United Kingdom”.He told the audience, which appeared to warm to the Brexit Secretary, that they had worked together to try and impeach Tony Blair over Iraq, but Mr Davis had to remove his name from the motion when he was appointed to Cabinet.center_img Mr Davis revealed that Theresa May asked, when she appointed him, if he wanted to be called Secretary of State for Leaving the European Union, or Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union.He said: “I’m afraid I was a victim of my own sense of humour and said it’s got to be Exiting – then it can be Department X.” Commenting on the Prime Minister’s reaction, he replied. “Not a thing.”Asked if he was saying “the Prime Minister doesn’t have a sense of humour”, he joked: “I told you what this would do to my career.”Mr Salmond ended the show by raising pounds1,000 for charity from a member of the audience who paid to have lunch with the pair in Edinburgh.

We don’t want to take anyone down. We can all get a little bit cynical and we’ve seen different talent shows but it’s a breath of fresh air. It’s kind but it’s honest.”Kate Phillips, controller of entertainment commissioning at the BBC, hailed the show as “a bit of a change from the usual panel of three or four judges”.While the format differs from The X Factor, some of the contestants may look familiar.

Architects reimagine famous structures in bizarre Lego form

first_imgEver wonder what would happen if professional architects were given Lego sets of famous buildings and asked to construct something from the same pieces? Us either, but someone did, so they recruited a few firms to do just that. The results were incredible.In case you didn’t know, Lego has an architecture series that give people the pieces and instructions to rebuild famous buildings, like Frank Lloyd Wright’s Falling Water and the Guggenheim Museum. These are buildings that laypeople know all to well, so you can only imagine how many times the average architect has considered reworking (or maybe demolishing?) them.Iconeye gave these kits–the most popular being Falling Water–to notable firms like Adjaye Associates, Foster + Partners, and AOC, and let them have at it. Short of a conversation about clever eyewear this is the most fun the typical architecture can (legally) have, so the structures they came up with are as fascinating as you’d expect. The fact that they did not have to be practical or serve any particular purpose makes these reimaginings of canonical architecture works that much better.Above, you can see the work by Foster + Partners–it’s nothing like Falling Water, as Lego intended it. It’s reminiscent (to me) of something that would go on the top of a battleship, but whatever it is, it’s undeniably cool. No wonder it’s impressive–it comes from the team behind a major part of the World Trade Center project and the Hearst Tower (though they did unspeakable horrors to the famous Emeco chair).Other firms got a bit more creative. The FAT collective turned the building into an birds-eye view of a highly organized city (more architects that want to be city planners?). Another firm got out the heatgun and turned Falling Water into Melting Water. Certainly less conventional, but just as interesting for us architecture fans.More at IconEye, via archetizerlast_img read more

Geek deals 10 off Lenovo ThinkPad X230 ultraportable laptop

first_imgThe term “ultraportable” is thrown around a lot these days. The selection of small, light laptops has grown exponentially, especially over the past couple years, but there is not one common standard for ultraportable laptops.Screen sizes range from 11 inches all the way up to 14 inches in some cases, both normal and low voltage processors can be found, and it’s a mix of laptops that do or do not have an optical drive.In the more traditional sense of an ultraportable, you’ll typically only see 11-12 inch models that lack an optical drive (known as a one-spindle system). From there you do see more of a split between full-featured models with powerful processors and portability-focused ones that lack some features and make do with low-voltage chips.Lenovo’s ThinkPad X Series has straddled both of those lines and experimented with a few different screen sizes, but the bread and butter has always been the mainstream 12 inch lineup. The latest iteration is the ThinkPad X230, a 12.5 inch widescreen model that may not measure up to Ultrabook standards, but also doesn’t compromise.The X230 measures in at 0.75-1.05 inches thin and 2.96 lb with the 4-cell battery. While that may not sound impressive in the day and age of the MacBook Air and its clones, it is rather impressive when you consider the X230’s capabilities. You can get up to a Core i7 processor and 16GB RAM. It has a 4-in-1 card reader, three USB ports (two are 3.0 standard), VGA and DisplayPort outputs, and built-in Ethernet. You can even upgrade the display to an IPS screen for an additional $50, a must-have in my book.This brand new model debuted just a few weeks ago and we’ve got a rare 10% coupon available for it. That brings the starting price down to just $854.10 for a Core i3 model or you can step up to a Core i5 for just $881.10.Visit LogicBuy for the Lenovo ThinkPad X230 Ultraportable Laptop deal or browse more Lenovo deals & couponslast_img read more

Trump touts Afghan peace progress but warns can kill millions

first_imgWashington: President Donald Trump flagged “progress” in peace talks with the Taliban on Friday but again warned that he has the ability to wipe out much of Afghanistan within days, killing millions. “We’ve made a lot of progress. We’re talking,” Trump told reporters at the White House. Trump said that US forces, bogged down for nearly two decades, “could win Afghanistan in two days or three days or four days, but I’m not looking to kill 10 million people.” Also Read – US judge dismissed criminal case against Jeffrey Epstein Advertise With Us He made a similar comment about 10 million casualties in July, but this time specified that this would not involve nuclear weapons. “I’m talking conventional.” Trump was vague, however, in answering a question about a Washington Post report on a deal being brokered in which the United States would cut troop levels in Afghanistan to as low as 8,000 from the current 14,000. Also Read – Watch: Donald Trump says Florida faces absolute monster hurricane Advertise With Us In return, the Taliban insurgency would reportedly cease fire, enter peace talks with the US-backed Afghan government, and pledge to keep out Al-Qaeda — whose 9/11 attacks on the US spurred the invasion that ousted the Taliban from power in Afghanistan in 2001. The United States and the Taliban are soon expected to begin their eighth round of talks in Doha to reach a deal that would end America’s nearly 18-year involvement in Afghanistan. Advertise With Us Washington has said it wants to see a deal inked by September 1, but any deal requires the Taliban to talk to Kabul. The push to end the conflict has ignited widespread concern among Afghans that in Washington’s rush to exit its longest war, the Taliban will be returned to some semblance of power. The Taliban, who now control or influence about half of Afghanistan’s territory, recently signed on to a vague pledge to reduce civilian casualties, but violence has continued unabated. According to a UN report released Tuesday, 1,366 civilians were killed and another 2,446 wounded during the first six months of 2019. The figure does not include at least 34 people who were killed in western Afghanistan when their bus hit a Taliban roadside bomb on Wednesday.last_img read more

first_imgObaidul Quader. File PhotoThe next general elections will be held under the ‘very election commission’, says ruling Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader.And, he adds, the present government will play a supportive role in holding the ballot.Also roads and bridges minister, Quader came up with the statement in Comilla on Tuesday, a day after BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia had on Monday iterated the need for a supportive government in order to hold the elections in a free and fair manner.“The election to the Jatiya Sangsad (national legislative assembly) shall be held under the very election commission. The present government will be a supportive role,” the minister said.He also mentioned that the army would play its ‘defined role’ in that situation.Khaleda Zia-led alliance boycotted the parliamentary elections held in 2014, as it demanded formation of a neutral caretaker government for holding a credible election.

LISTEN Mike McCoy Cardinals Offensive Coordinato

first_img LISTEN: Mike McCoy, Cardinals Offensive Coordinator (AP Photo/Bob Leverone, File) “There’s certain quarterbacks that are great quarterbacks that aren’t on very good teams,” he said.McCoy admitted he hasn’t watched much film on this year’s quarterback draft class.And whether the 2018 Cardinals starting quarterback is found in the draft, free agency or via a trade “we’re just getting this thing started here with the evaluation process. We got a lot of tough work ahead of us to figure out who that’s going to be,” he said.One thing McCoy has learned over his 18-year NFL coaching career, including four years as the head coach of the San Diego Chargers and two stints as the offensive coordinator in Denver, is to not be afraid of change.Sure, there are certain things McCoy would like to do offensively but sometimes a coach needs to adjust. He pointed to several examples:— In 2003 as the quarterbacks coach in Carolina, McCoy watched backup Jake Delhomme lead the Panthers to the Super Bowl after starter Rodney Peete got hurt in the opener.— In 2007, the Panthers won four games with four different quarterbacks.— With the Broncos, McCoy worked with Peyton Manning, Kyle Orton and Tim Tebow and while in San Diego, it was Philip Rivers under center. McCoy revealed very little during a nearly 21-minute introductory press conference on Monday, though that was perhaps to be expected given there is very little known about the Cardinals’ offense in 2018. Much of that, of course, will depend on the makeup of the roster.Asked specifically whether his play-calling will be more about scheme or matchups, McCoy answered with one word: Players.“When the players come in (to begin the offseason program), we’re going to have our core, but we’re going to find out what our players do best,” he said.“The roster is going to continuously change. I know from talking to Coach and talking to (general manager) Steve Keim, we’re going to churn the roster and it’s going to keep on going so the key thing, I think, as a coach and as the offensive coordinator is to find out what our players do best and we’ll adjust accordingly.”Obviously, finding a quarterback is first and foremost.McCoy mentioned one, and only one, preference when it comes to a style of quarterback.“One that’s going to win a lot of games,” he said, smiling.McCoy added he wants a quarterback who is a leader, tough, can handle adversity and makes the team and his teammates better. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo 7 Comments   Share   Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories TEMPE, Ariz. – No quarterback. Uncertainty at wide receiver. Questions along the offensive line and tight end.Yet, Mike McCoy still accepted the job of Arizona Cardinals offensive coordinator.The question is why.“It’s critical that, when you put a staff together, you get with good people,” he said, referring to head coach Steve Wilks. “And that was one of the really big selling points to me is what type of person he is (and) what his beliefs are.” “You have your core, what you want to do and what you think you want to be known as but then it’s all about players. We have to adjust to the players we have. There’s going to be injuries during the season at a certain position. Well, if that next guy comes in, what does he do and what type of player he is?” McCoy said.“That’s the fun part of the job really is to find out what type of players you have right now in the offseason. That’s the exciting time for us right now is putting this team together and building the foundation for the future so that it’s not a one week thing. It’s being competitive week-in and week-out and finding out what your players do best because it’s all about players.” Your browser does not support the audio element.

(Odd Anderson/pool photo via AP) Like every good royal wedding, it was all about the hats, the dresses and the posh tails, with some fashion standouts among the guests hustled inside the church at Windsor Castle.Amal Clooney was undeniably regal in a mustard yellow Stella McCartney dress with cap sleeves and a long tie in back that bordered on a train as she glided into St. George’s Chapel on Saturday for the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Her actor husband, George Clooney, was at her side in neutral grey and a pale yellow stripe tie,Granted, it’s difficult for Ms. Clooney merely to blend in, but her jauntily tilted and perfectly matched wide-brim hat, displaying a dainty veil in front, brought gasps both online and in the crowd that lined the route to the church.The royals didn’t disappoint, led by Queen Elizabeth II in a lime silk tweed coat and Angela Kelly hat with handmade lace crystals and pearls by Lucy Price. Kate, the duchess of Cambridge, wore a primrose yellow wool silk tailored coat by the house of Alexander McQueen and large hat with a flower tucked under the brim on one side. She sat beside the groom’s step-mother, Camilla, duchess of Cornwall, who also went large with a flat, feathery effect for a hat.The mother of the bride, Doria Ragland, watched the nuptials in an understated hat and light green suit.Guests also included Oprah Winfrey in tiered Stella McCartney pink and a matching statement hat. Victoria Beckham, meanwhile, a close friend of the groom, blended quite nicely in dark navy, a peekaboo slit at the front of her dress that fell well below the knee, as she attended with her husband, soccer star David Beckham.It was a very different royal wedding for Pippa Middleton, the sister of Kate Middleton. Pippa received a lot of TV time at Kate and Prince William’s 2011 wedding when she fussed with the train on her sibling’s dress. This time around, the now married and newly pregnant Pippa was in demure mint green, a matronly bun under her small hat.New mom Serena Williams walked slowly inside in soft rose, a high fascinator on her head and a chunky gold necklace around her neck. Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, cousins of the groom, went for understated hats this time, in sharp contrast to their exuberant head gear at the William and Kate’s wedding.Elsewhere among the 600 invited guests were pops of royal purple in dresses and ties with a healthy dose of spring prints. Cressida Bonas, a former girlfriend of Harry’s, was in neon stripes of pink, green and yellow. Gina Torres, one of Markle’s “Suits” co-stars, wore a floral and stripe print of red and white.Among the men, one guest came in formal long shorts — all the better to show off his two prosthetic legs.
