Thunder Bay Bear Clan Patrol takes to the water to try and

first_img(Bear Clan out on a river in Thunder Bay. Photos courtesy the Bear Clan.)Kathleen MartensAPTN News SaturdayVolunteers with Bear Clan Patrol in Thunder Bay plan to start doing something this weekend police and politicians have so far been unable to do – patrol the waterways that have claimed more than 12 Indigenous lives since 2000.“We got three so far,” spokesman Travis Hay said of brightly coloured kayaks they want to launch Saturday in the McIntyre River that runs through the northwestern Ontario city.“We’ll be doing weekend river patrols through the summer along with our regular foot patrols.”Some victims drowned accidentally in the river and McIntyre-Nebing Floodway but others died under suspicious circumstances leading to allegations of racism against the police service for shoddy investigative work.Eventually, there was a coroner’s inquest and water safety audit.The victims were either students from remote communities or adults in the city for various reasons including medical appointments.Hay says the city is still debating recommendations from the audit but Bear Clan isn’t waiting to make the rivers safer.“We went out earlier this week on a test run…,” he said, “to see how the waters were.”The Thunder Bay chapter is modelled on the Bear Clan Patrol that was founded in Winnipeg, Man., and now supervised by James Favel.Favel loves how the group is thinking “outside the box” despite the many challenges.“When they started up I did not envy their position,” he said. “They were up against (allegations) of corruption of the police and mayor and the hatred there, the racism.”But now Favel says the Bear Clan is filling gaps in services – especially evenings and weekends – and repairing relationships from the ground up. There are 28 chapters now in 14 cities in six provinces from Montreal to Vancouver, he added.Hay says Thunder Bay bought kayaks and life jackets with donations. He says volunteers are needed and welcome.Thunder Bay police are conducting their own patrols of the waterways in the city.A recently released report by police shows there have been more than a thousand interactions between officers and people by the read more

Fall in foreign tourism accelerates UN agency reports

2 July 2009International tourism shrunk by 8 per cent in the first four months of the year as the global economic crisis continued to restrict the budgets of travellers, but the pace of the decline is expected to ease later this year, according to the latest figures released by the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO). International tourism shrunk by 8 per cent in the first four months of the year as the global economic crisis continued to restrict the budgets of travellers, but the pace of the decline is expected to ease later this year, according to the latest figures released by the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO).Some 247 million tourist arrivals were recorded between January and April this year, compared to 269 million in the same period last year, with falls reported in every region of the world except Africa and South America.The statistics, unveiled today in the latest edition of UNWTO’s World Tourism Barometer, mean the Madrid-based agency has had to revise its forecast for 2009 and now predicts that tourist numbers will drop by between 4 and 6 per cent across the whole of the year.UNWTO said the slowdown in the global market in the latter half of 2008 only accelerated this year, with the tourism industry being hit particularly hard by economic troubles in key source markets, such as the United Kingdom.The outlook remains clouded, the agency said, given the current level of advanced bookings, the recent reduction in airline capacity and travellers’ concerns about the potential threat posed by the influenza A (H1N1) virus.Europe has been one of the hardest hit regions, with a 10 per cent slide recorded so far this year, due in part to the depreciation of the pound sterling in the UK, one of the largest sources of international tourists.The Middle East fell by 18 per cent, but UNWTO said complete figures for that region are not yet available. Tourist numbers in the Asia-Pacific region dropped by 6 per cent and in the Americas by 5 per cent. But within that, South America recorded a rise of 0.2 per cent.The best result was registered in Africa, where tourist numbers increased by 3 per cent, thanks to particularly strong demand for North African destinations and the recovery of Kenya as a destination after a decline following the deadly political violence in the East African country in early 2008.Overall, the pace of the decline is expected to soften, so that in the last four months of this year the drop may be as little as 3 per cent on 2008 figures.UNWTO continues to stress that the tourism industry is critical to resolving international economic fortunes as it is one of the largest employment sectors in most countries and can serve as a stimulus to the rest of the economy. read more

Annan recommends extending UN mission in Burundi until next May

The most urgent priority is to ensure that the conflict with the National Liberation Forces (FNL) is brought to an end, he says in his fifth report to the UN Security Council.”I encourage the Government, as well as the international and regional partners concerned, to adopt a common approach to resolving this conflict,” Mr. Annan says. “In this regard, I welcome the steps taken by the Government to engage in talks with FNL, and urge it to continue with these efforts, which have the support of the international community. I also strongly urge FNL leaders to seize this opportunity to join the peace process.”While the need for an ONUB military presence should continue to be assessed closely in close consultation with the Government, it is proposed that the mission’s military component could begin its drawdown in December with the withdrawal of one national contingent, he says.Together with other withdrawals and redeployments this would result in a reduction of approximately 2,000 personnel, or 40 per cent of ONUB’s current authorized military strength, between April and June, he says. With the completion of this withdrawal, the remainder of the ONUB force would remain temporarily deployed in the three border provinces where FNL remains active – Bujumbura Rural, including the capital, Bubanza and Cibitoké, he states.The efforts of the Tanzanian Government to bring FNL to the negotiating table are commendable, but should no tangible progress be achieved in the coming weeks, “the Security Council and the region may wish to give due consideration to the use of targeted measures against those among the FNL leaders who continue to obstruct a peaceful solution,” Mr. Annan says.Meanwhile, Burundi is one of the most densely populated countries in the world and disputes over land ownership and other social inequities have been at the core of the country’s conflict. With rising demographic pressures, alternative income-generating opportunities for rural communities will be essential to lessen the pressure on land and the dependency on agriculture, he says. read more

Central Asia bloc has important role in peace stability and prosperity beyond

Noting that the SCO represents “more than half of humanity,” Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed said the eight-nation bloc is assuming even greater importance whose “expanded range of activities will have implications for peace, stability, and prosperity across the region and far beyond.”“You are playing a growing role in shaping the global agenda, based on cooperation and dialogue,” Ms. Mohammed told the group in Qingdao, China.The “Shanghai 5” was established in 1996 to cement peaceful cross-border relations between Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, China, Russia and Tajikistan. It has since metamorphosed into the SCO, which now includes Uzbekistan, India and Pakistan.“The world needs a recommitment to multilateralism, and we need it now,” Ms. Mohammed stressed. “Regional and international threats to security and stability, from transnational crime to climate change to violent extremism and terrorism, cannot be resolved by any one country alone,” she added.The deputy UN chief called the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the SCO’s Development Strategy 2025 “our blueprints for joint action.”She flagged last year’s SCO joint communique as underscoring the 2030 Agenda’s implementation and as an important step toward strengthening cooperation in mutual sectors.“Your joint commitment to support the promotion of innovative technology; to sharing experiences in the formulation and implementation of national development strategies, as well as to working together towards the creation of a favourable investment and business climate are crucial and we are here to support you in those endeavours,” Ms. Mohammed said.“To ensure a fair globalization, we must ensure nations are able to have the necessary domestic resources and capacities to steer their economies and development agendas towards our common goals as outlined by the 2030 Agenda and the Paris Agreement,” she added.The Deputy Secretary-General commended the bloc’s commitment to counter regional threats and its revitalization of the SCO-Afghanistan Contact Group as a strong contribution to support the Afghan-led peace process.Turning to cross-border cooperation, she hailed China’s Belt and Road initiative as “promoting connectivity, economic prosperity and diplomatic ties across the region.”“The UN continues to support stronger collaboration between developing countries by catalyzing, brokering and facilitating South-South cooperation across many spheres,” she asserted.Ms. Mohammed noted that UN-SCO relations, based on the 2010 Joint Declaration, “provide a solid foundation for future cooperation to benefit of people of this region and the world.”“Let us take every opportunity, starting with the first-ever UN Conference of Heads of Counter-Terrorism Agencies later this month, to build and strengthen our partnership and cooperation at the global, regional and local level,” she said. read more

Walkers warned to be careful on coasts as high winds expected

first_img Updated 2.45pmTHE COAST GUARD has warned walkers out today to be careful as high winds cause sea swells.South-easterly gales up to force eight, 60-70km/hr, are expected along the coast today, with Met Eireann saying they will be “fresh and gusty”.That means that waves will break on piers and sea walls in areas like Howth, where the Coast Guard is urging caution.In addition, the waves have also caused delays to Dart services, with Blackrock in particular affected: Irish Rail said that the 1.36pm Connolly/Rosslare train was 30+ minutes late due to ‘knock-on delays’ through Blackrock.Howth Coast Guard station spokesperson Fergus Cooney is advising caution when people venture out to affected areas.“Between 10am and 4pm today we are advising the public not to walk the pier, outside these times during the current conditions they should exercise caution and use common sense, if you see the spray of the waves reaching on the pier don’t walk it.Waves can be unpredictable, a lull of 10 minutes can be followed by intense waves powerful enough to knock you over and cause injury or wash you off the pier wall.

Explosions gunfire rattle Kabul military hospital

first_imgAfghan commandos arrive at the site of an explosion in Kabul on March 8, 2017. AFPExplosions and gunfire rattled Kabul’s diplomatic district Wednesday when insurgents dressed as doctors stormed Afghanistan’s largest military hospital, officials said, as growing insecurity besets the war-battered country.No group immediately claimed responsibility for the ongoing assault on the Sardar Daud Khan hospital, but it comes as the Taliban ramp up attacks even before the official start of their annual spring offensive.At least two people were so far reported killed and 12 others wounded, the health ministry said around two hours after the raid began, with medical staff trapped in the facility posting desperate messages for help on social media.”Attackers are inside the hospital. Pray for us,” a hospital staff member wrote on Facebook.Hospital administrators told AFP three gunmen wearing white laboratory coats were on the loose after a suicide bomber on foot blew himself up at the backdoor entrance, sparking chaos inside the 400-bed facility.”I saw one of the attackers, armed with an AK-47 and dressed as doctor, shooting at patients and guards on the third floor,” hospital nurse Abdul Qadeer told AFP.”They shot my friend but I managed to flee… I had to jump over the barbed wire to escape.”At least two other loud explosions — including what the defense ministry called a car bomb in the hospital’s parking lot — were heard as Afghan special forces launched a clearance operation to rein in the attackers.”Three attackers armed with AK-47s and grenades entered the building. Our commandos are chasing them,” ministry spokesman Dawlat Waziri told AFP around four hours after the first explosion.”One of them has been killed, but two others are still resisting on the sixth and seventh floors of the building. We have evacuated all the patients.”- ‘Criminal act’ -Afghanistan’s warring parties, including government forces, have repeatedly targeted medical facilities, decimating Afghanistan’s fragile health system and preventing conflict-displaced civilians from accessing lifesaving care.”This is a criminal act. Nothing can justify an attack on hospitals,” Afghan Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah said of the latest attack.”We will never forgive these criminals. Unfortunately, this attack has resulted in some casualties. The attackers entered the backdoor disguised as doctors.”In an ambiguous statement, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said he could neither confirm nor deny that the insurgents were behind the attack. The militant group is known to distance itself from attacks that result in high civilian casualties.The assault comes just a week after 16 people were killed in simultaneous Taliban suicide assaults on two security compounds in Kabul.Dozens of others were wounded as a suicide car bomber struck an Afghan police precinct in western Kabul and a five-hour gun battle ensued after another attacker snuck in, sending clouds of smoke billowing into the sky.In the second attack, a suicide bomber blew himself up at the gates of an Afghan intelligence agency branch in eastern Kabul.The growing violence underscores rising insecurity in Afghanistan over the resurgent Taliban.The country is bracing for an intense fighting season in the spring as the government’s repeated bids to launch peace negotiations with the Taliban have failed.Afghan forces, already beset by record casualties, desertions and non-existent “ghost soldiers” on the payrolls, have been struggling to rein in the Taliban since US-led NATO troops ended their combat mission in December 2014.Kabul last month endorsed US general John Nicholson’s call for thousands of additional coalition troops in Afghanistan to fend off the militants before the spring offensive.Extra troops were needed to end the stalemate in the war, Nicholson, the top US commander in Afghanistan, told the US Congress in what could be President Donald Trump’s first major test of military strategy.last_img read more

Physicists propose method for braiding light

first_img The physicists, Thomas Iadecola, Thomas Schuster, and Claudio Chamon at Boston University, have published a paper on the non-Abelian braiding of light in a recent issue of Physical Review Letters.As the scientists explain, non-Abelian braided light is the optical analogue of a similar phenomenon that occurs in electronic systems, called non-Abelian Berry phases, which have been known about since the 1980s. The electronic medium that electrons propagate through can be engineered to have topological defects, such as vortices, that can be wound around each other to form a braid. Within the electronic medium, zero-energy states called zero modes, which carry fractional charges of the full electron charge, bind to the braided defects and act as guides for the propagating charges. The new study marks the first time that zero modes, along with their ability to be braided, have theoretically been shown to exist in optical systems. The researchers propose that a set of waveguides can be arranged in a pattern containing vortices, where the precise positions of the vortices are etched into the optical medium using a femtosecond laser. Each vortex can trap a beam of light, so that light traces out a braided path as it propagates through the medium.”The greatest significance of this work is that it demonstrates the existence of defects with non-Abelian braiding in optical, rather than electronic, systems,” Iadecola told “Such defects are actively sought-after in the context of solid-state electronic systems, but the optical analogue that we suggest in this work could provide another avenue to observe non-Abelian braiding. The advantage of the optical systems we consider is that they have a high degree of tunability that allows one to precisely control the paths of the defects during braiding.”In both the electronic and optical systems, the non-Abelian nature of the braiding process means that performing the same braids in a different order yields different results. The non-Abelian nature arises directly from the braided topology of the zero modes, and is different from most processes that guide charges or light, which do not depend on the order of the steps in the process. (—Physicists have proposed a way to braid three beams of light by guiding the beams along swirling, vortex-shaped defects in the optical medium through which the beams travel. The braided light would have an unusual “non-Abelian” nature, meaning that its phase would depend on the exact order in which the defects are wound around each other. © 2016 Explore further “The fact that the braided light behaves in a non-Abelian way is interesting because it constitutes a vivid manifestation of topology in physics,” Iadecola said. “The vortices that are used to trap the light and braid it are topological defects in the ordered pattern of the waveguide lattice. We believe that it may be possible to use these ‘topological’ waveguide lattices in optical circuit elements; this is an avenue that we are interested in pursuing further.” Citation: Physicists propose method for braiding light (2016, August 22) retrieved 18 August 2019 from Journal information: Physical Review Letters In the proposed experiment to detect non-Abelian braided light, light is braided in a different order in the two arms of an interferometer, and detectors determine whether the two arms produce different phases of light.

How do braided river dynamics affect sediment storage? Another interesting aspect of the optical zero modes is that, while they occur at the quantum level with a small number of photons, the phenomenon persists even with large numbers of photons. For this reason, braided light can be understood using both quantum and classical descriptions of light.The researchers expect that braided light can be experimentally realized with current technology, and they have proposed an experiment to do so. The experiment uses an interferometer in which light is braided in a different order in the two arms. Detectors then measure whether different orders of braiding produce different phases of light, giving evidence of the light’s non-Abelian nature. “We intend to work with experimentalists in the waveguide optics field to implement a version of the experiment we proposed,” Iadecola said. “We would also like to determine whether there are other optics platforms that could support the ‘topological guided modes’ we study in the paper.” In the vortex pattern in which the waveguides are arranged, a vortex can trap a beam of light so that light traces out a braided path as it propagates through the medium.

Fake degree row Surinder Singh meets police chief offers to surrender

first_imgSingh said he had appeared for examinations in 2009, 2010 and 2011 from Eiilm University, Sikkim, and was awarded a BA degree in 2012. He also admitted that there was a “typo” error in the affidavit even as his party alleged that police was targeting its leaders.The Delhi Cantt MLA, who met police commissioner BS Bassi along with senior party leader Sanjay Singh, said he also offered to “surrender” before the law enforcing agency in the case. “I showed him (Bassi) my documents. I also told him that I gave exams in  2009, 2010 and 2011 and the university came under the scanner in April, 2015. Why should I be blamed for it? This is a political conspiracy by my opponents. Also Read – Company director arrested for swindling Rs 345 crore“If police still think there is a need to arrest me, then I am available for it,” he said after meeting Bassi.Earlier in the day, Singh, a former NSG commando who combated terrorists during the 26/11 attack in Mumbai, addressed a news conference along with Sanjay Singh where they charged that the police was targeting AAP. Sanjay Singh said Surinder was a “victim” in the case and not an “offender”. “The Centre is trying to suppress AAP by arresting our leaders and MLAs. Narendra Modi had resorted to similar tactics in Gujarat. There are several FIRs registered against BJP leaders, but the police are showing promptness only in arresting Surinder Singh and AAP leaders.“In this case, Surinder Singh is a victim and not an offender. The university has issued degrees to thousands of students.  “If the university turns out to be dubious, then the MLA cannot be blamed for that,” Sanjay Singh said.last_img read more

Mt Ruapehu confirmed as one of the best places to work in

first_imgIt’s true – Mt Ruapehu is one of New Zealand’s best playgrounds, and now it’s been confirmed as one of the best places to work in the country.Ruapehu Alpine Lifts (RAL), a finalist in the JRA Best Places to Work Survey, last night won the Most Improved Award in the Large Workplace category (400+ staff).RAL says this is a huge achievement as this is only the second year it has taken part in the survey.“This result has completely exceeded our expectations, we had a five-year plan for this survey to build on our average result from 2008 – but to win this award in our second year is fantastic,” says Jane McGechan, RAL HR manager. “It’s satisfying knowing that what we put in place to improve our staff morale paid off, and our people are happy in their workplace.Ms McGechan says key for her was knowing that 85 percent of the 800 full and part-time staff took the time to complete the survey, an increase of 25 percent in participation on last year. This increase in participation, and a clear improvement in employee satisfaction were the key drivers behind the organisation’s win.“At least 90 percent of our staff don’t have ready access to a computer so we had facilities set up on the mountain, and in Ohakune to make it easy for them to fill in the survey. 85.4 percent of staff said RAL was a fun place to work which to is key for us as our mission is ‘to create maximum vertical fun – Mt Ruapehu, Your Mountain’, and this is supposed to encompass staff and customers alike.“We took part in the JRA survey last year for the first time and found out that our staff were not having as much fun as we had previously thought. We knew we had to change our focus, so targeted communication throughout the company as an area to improve, and put a plan in place to achieve this.“The results are certainly a credit to our management team as they fully supported our new strategy from inception to implementation; and helped make the changes happen in order to manage the challenges we all face working the winter seasons on a mountain such as Mt Ruapehu.”Challenges include weather conditions that can close or delay the opening of the mountain, impacting both pay packets and staff morale. Living and working on a mountain in a remote region is another challenge so, to keep up staff morale, RAL implemented several activities over and above the norm that were either free or cheap for staff to partake in.“The winter season is intense. Many of our team on the Whakapapa side live and work on the mountain so they are quite isolated compared to those who live at Ohakune. Many don’t have ready access to transport, and as well as working together they live in close quarters to each other, eat with each other, drink with each other and generally live in each others’ pockets. Things have the potential to go downhill pretty rapidly.“To ensure our people had an opportunity to take a break we organised events such as shopping trips to the bigger towns, bus trips to big sports games such as the All Blacks in Hamilton. We’ve had BBQs, sports games including classic games of dodgeball and Tug of War.”“A large contingent of our seasonal staff are also from around the globe so we feel a responsibility to provide them with opportunities to explore and experience the local region to keep them motivated and excited about working in one of New Zealand’s best playgrounds,” says Ms McGechan. Ms McGechan says they’ve set themselves further targets for next season to keep improving on this year’s results. “We want to ensure RAL stays as one of New Zealand’s best places to work. We have a fantastic team of full time staff, and we are able to supplement them with great seasonal staff during the busy months, and we want to build on this.”The JRA Best Workplaces Survey is the largest employment engagement survey in New Zealand where employees rate their organisation from 60 questions across a range of measures. <a href=”” target=”_blank”><img src=”;cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE&amp;n=a5c63036″ border=”0″ alt=””></a> Source = Mt Ruapehulast_img read more
