Ontario appeal court upholds convictions for former MP Del Mastro

AFNs Bellegarde demanding immediate meeting with Valcourt

first_imgAPTN National News OTTAWA—Assembly of First Nations National Chief Perry Bellegarde is demanding an “immediate meeting” with Aboriginal Affairs Minister Bernard Valcourt in the wake of a deadly fire on a Saskatchewan First Nation that left two children dead.Bellegarde sent a letter to Valcourt via fax on Friday saying he wanted to discuss lifting the two per cent cap placed on yearly funding for First Nations. Bellegarde said the cap has left many First Nation communities struggling with limited resources which creates situations like the tragic one last Tuesday on the Makwa Sahgaiehcan First Nation.“The situation is at a crisis level and the reasons all point to the fact the government of Canada provides insufficient funds to First Nations to adequately provide their members a safe and healthy environment,” said Bellegarde. “The time is now to work together to address the challenges facing First Nations in terms of fire prevention and protection. Directly related to this is an open and honest discussion on lifting the 2 per cent cap on First Nations funding.”Valcourt blamed Makwa Sahgaiehcan First Nation for not having the ability to fight the fire Tuesday that killed the two children. Facing questions from the NDP during question period Thursday, Valcourt said his department was giving First Nations adequate resources to deal with things like fire prevention and firefighting.“This particular band has received consistent funding for fire protection services,” said Valcourt. “And the fact of the matter is that each band council is responsible for fire protection on the reserve…That First Nation, like others, received sufficient funds to deal with fire safety.”Bellegarde said in his letter there was no point in blaming First Nations.“It is not the time to play politics or blame First Nations that are trying to do what they can with inadequate resources,” said Bellegarde. “That will not change the outcome of these tragic events.”The Chretien Liberals imposed the two per cent cap in the mid-1990s. Under the cap, overall funding for First Nations can’t grow more than two per cent a yearIn the letter, Bellegarde quotes former Aboriginal affairs deputy minister Scott Searson who told a Senate committee the cap was only supposed to be temporary. Bellegarde also mentioned an Aboriginal Affairs presentation that with tabled before the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal. Bellegarde said the departmental presentation shows the government is aware of the impact the two per cent cap has had on First Nations.“I am asking for an immediate meeting with you to advance this work. Time is of the essence,” said Bellegarde, in the letter. “The longer we live and operate under these restrictive policies the more we are jeopardizing the health and safety of First Nations citizens.”The Loon Lake volunteer fire department did not respond to the fire in Makwa Sahgaiehcan because the band was three months behind on its fire bill.Local RCMP officers were the first responders on the scene and they saw the biological father bring his two-year-old boy and 18-month-old daughter out of the burning home.Valcourt’s office says the department gave Makwa Sahgaiehcan $34,000 for fire prevention and services in the 2014-2015 fiscal year.news@aptn.ca@APTNnewslast_img read more

UNESCO head pays tribute to Martinique poet of la négritude

17 April 2008The head of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) mourned the death today of Aimé Césaire, the Martinique poet and the founder of the artistic and cultural movement “la négritude.” The head of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) mourned the death today of Aimé Césaire, the Martinique poet and the founder of the artistic and cultural movement “la négritude.”“UNESCO has lost one of its most valuable friends,” Koïchiro Matsuura, the agency’s Director-General, told its Executive Board in Paris.“We have all been marked by the universal import of Aimé Césaire’s call for human dignity, watchfulness and responsibility.”Mr. Matsuura noted that the poet had tirelessly opposed colonialism and racism since the 1930s.In 2004, Mr. Césaire was awarded UNESCO’s Toussaint Louverture Prize in recognition of his commitment to equality among peoples and cultures and to the struggle against discrimination and exclusion.Calling the poet a “voice of the voiceless,” Olabiyi Babalola Joseph Yaï of Benin, President of the UNESCO Executive Board, said that “a great baobab has fallen, as we say back home.

2005 summit on Millennium Declaration to be decisive to UNs future Annan

In unveiling his ideas for holding a high-level review of the 2000 Millennium Declaration, Mr. Annan describes the proposed summit – from 14 to 16 September 2005 at UN Headquarters in New York – as an event of “decisive importance.””The decisions to be taken at the meeting may determine the whole future of the United Nations,” he says in a report on the format and organization of the summit.”Even more important, they will offer us our best – perhaps our only – chance to ensure a safer, more just and more prosperous world in the new century, not only for our own sakes but for those of our children and grandchildren.”At a similar meeting five years ago, more than 100 Heads of State and government adopted the Millennium Declaration, a blueprint for achieving a more peaceful, prosperous and just world through collective security and a global partnership for development.What sprang from their statement was the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which aim to halve extreme poverty and hunger, achieve universal education and promote gender equality. They also seek to reduce infant and maternal mortality, fight HIV/AIDS and other diseases, ensure environmental sustainability and develop a global partnership for development – all by 2015.In his annual updates, the Secretary-General says that progress towards achieving the MDGs has been uneven at best. His next report, which he plans to release in March, will also draw on the findings of his High-level Panel on Threats, Challenges and Change.Mr. Annan says Member States should take an “active and positive interest” in the issues before the 2005 summit. He also urges countries to engage in the preparations at the highest level, “with an unshakeable determination to reach agreement on decisions that will truly fulfil the commitments contained in the Millennium Declaration, giving us a stronger and more effective United Nations as an instrument for achieving a better and safer world.”While acknowledging it to be an ambitious agenda, he says he has no doubt that it is feasible if Member States have the will to do it. “The weak, the vulnerable and the insecure citizens of this world look to the Organization for help and for protection. Let us not disappoint them.” read more

Greece pledges to crack down on tax evasion as a way of

Greece pledges to crack down on tax evasion as a way of life as part of bailout tax reform ATHENS, Greece – Dimitris Bokas keeps meticulous records of the bathroom fixtures he sells from his small shop in the quiet middle-class residential neighbourhood of Koukaki near the centre of Athens — just in case a tax inspector makes a surprise visit to ensure Greece’s 23 per cent sales tax is being collected and reported correctly.But Bokas also does installation and repair jobs — and half of those involve cash deals with no receipts for his labour. The result is that a job costing 250 euros ($275) goes for 125 euros because he doesn’t charge the client sales tax and Bokas doesn’t report the income for taxation. “I’ve got a receipt for everything I sell in my shop,” Bokas said. But tax officials “don’t know what my hands do.”This kind of tax dodging is a Greek national pastime, costing the state billions of euros in revenue. Greece promised last week to get tough on tax evasion in return for a third European bailout expected to be negotiated over the next month. The talks, expected to last four weeks, will start if Parliament agrees by Wednesday to eurozone demands including tax hikes and pension cuts.But experts say Greece has largely failed in previous crackdowns on tax evasion, which has been rampant for generations. An estimated 10 billion euros in taxes never makes it into government coffers annually — a significant factor in the country’s inability to pay its roughly 320 billion euros in national debt.Tax dodging among Greeks started as a sign of patriotism during nearly four centuries of Ottoman rule that ended in 1821. It continues today amid mistrust over government spending and disdain over how the country’s various administrations have handled Greece’s financial mess after the economy imploded in 2009.“A lot of Greeks believe it’s not only a way to cheat the inefficient Greek government, but a way to exert small time resistance to the bailout agreement and tax hikes,” said Aristidis Hatzis, a professor of law and economics at Athens University. “They do not perceive this as a kind of corruption.”Contributing to the problem is an informal economy that accounts for about 25 per cent of Greece’s annual gross domestic product. Evasion is most common in the services sector where customers don’t receive a physical product, and it’s not limited to small businesses like plumbers and restaurants.In monthly reports, Greece’s financial crimes unit lists finalized tax investigation cases and recent offenders include doctors, engineers, high tech firms, construction companies, clothing manufacturers, bakeries, architects and advertising agencies.Many cases involve unreported income of hundreds of thousands of euros or more and one lawyer failed to report 16 million euros in income, the unit said in a statement last week.But many cases go uninvestigated because of poorly trained tax investigators, personnel shortages and politically motivated appointments of tax investigation supervisors, said Haris Theoharis, who was Greece’s top tax enforcer until last year and is now a lawmaker with the centrist To Potami party.Theoharis said it’s too soon to tell whether the governing far left Syriza party will mount an effective campaign against tax evasion because few specifics of its plans have been disclosed. He argued that freeing the system from political interference is key: “Unless they depoliticize the tax administration and stop trying to interfere with who gets promoted,” he said, “they will not have success.”Nikolaos Artavanis, a finance professor at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, said the government’s decision to raise the sales tax for restaurants as part of its offer in return for a bailout could prevent a tax evasion crackdown from working.The rate is going from 6.5 per cent to 13 per cent for hotels and from 13 per cent to 23 per cent for restaurants and other businesses that sell food. Many Greek restaurant and hotel owners say they’ll be forced to absorb the hike because their clients can’t afford to pay more, and experts like Artavanis believe evasion could skyrocket.“The fiscal impact could be zero or be negative because tax evasion will increase,” he said. “They could get less in taxes.”More enforcement will be needed, but Artavanis said many parts of Greece rarely see a tax inspector. His research focuses on tax payments by Greek restaurants, and owners in some parts of the country have told him they have not had tax inspector visits since last August.Bokas, the plumber and fixture vendor, said most of his customers who want no-tax jobs are apartment owners or small businesses. Larger businesses and big apartment buildings with on-site management always want a receipt for the work so they pay the full price, and Bokas collects the sales tax and pays tax on the work he does for those jobs.He said would prefer to do all of his work legally but doubted there will be much change in Greece unless the entire country changes its habits. Unlike Greeks who distrust the government’s ability to effectively spend tax money, Bokas thinks officials should be given a chance to prove they can.“Paying all the taxes we owe would be the right thing to do and it would help us have a healthier country,” he said. “If the tax were paid, the rich wouldn’t be able to get richer by evading taxes and the poor wouldn’t have to evade taxes so they can just get by.” A woman wearing a hat in the colors of Greece’s national flag, looks at wallets designed as Euro banknotes on display, outside a kiosk in central Athens, Tuesday, July 14, 2015.

The Fakers Guide to the EHF Champions League 201617

TEXT: BEN SHAFRANEurope’s premier handball competition returns this week. To celebrate, we present a guide to the coming season – who to watch out for and who is likely to end up at the Final4 in Cologne on 3-4 June 2017. Games will be broadcast freely on www.ehftv.com.Main storyline: Since the Final4 format was introduced for the 20119/10 season, at least one of Barcelona and THW Kiel have made it to Cologne in each year, and both teams made it to four of the past seven tournaments. With newer teams such as Paris Saint-Germain and the Eastern Europeans on the rise, 2016/17 could see the first Final4 without either of the most successful teams in handball history.Favourite: VeszprémBiggest rival: Paris Saint-GermainOutside bet for the title: VardarMy Final4 forecast: Veszprém, Paris Saint-Germain, Kielce, VardarSeven players to watch: Andreas Wolff (goalkeeper, Kiel) Cedric Sorhaindo (pivot, Barcelona) Uwe Gensheimer (left wing, Paris Saint-Germain) Ivan Sliskovic (left back, Veszprém) Mads Mensah Larsen (playmaker, Rhein-Neckar Löwen) Valentin Porte (right back, Montpellier) Darko Djukic (right wing, Kielce)Five unmissable group ties: Flensburg-Handewitt – Barcelona (5/10/2016 in Germany and 22-26/2/2017 in Spain), after their unforgettable semi-final in 2014, any game that pits Ljubomir Vranjes’ team against Xavi Pascual’s team is a must-watch. Veszprém – Kiel (15/10/2016 in Hungary and 15-19/2/2017 in Germany), these teams have met in the semi-final in each of the last three years and represent the hottest cross-border rivalry in European handball. Barcelona – Veszprém (22/10/2016 in Spain and 8-12/2/2017 in Hungary), one team has rules Europe eight times, the other is desperate to reach the top. Vardar – Kielce (12/11/2016 in Macedonia and 4/11/2016 in Poland), the battle for the top of Group B will be fought in two of the loudest arena in Champions League. Veszprém – Paris Saint-Germain (22/11/2016 in Hungary and 27/11/2016 in France), the draw has placed the two favourites for the title in the same group, and they will go at each other fiercely in a replay of last season’s semi-final match.Every team in my expected order of finish:Group A1. Paris Saint-Germain Handball – The French champions have been getting closer and closer to the European title, and now boast more goal-scoring threat than ever before.2. Telekom Veszprém – Having come as close as possible to the promised land only to stumble on the last step, the Hungarian champions went on a shopping spree and now boast three word-class players in almost every position.3. FC Barcelona Lassa – Out with the old and in with the new, so this might be a season where the Spanish champions take a step back before they re-establish themselves as the best in Europe.4. SG Flensburg-Handewitt – Some stability in the squad is welcome in northern Germany, and a visit to the Final4 is once again the target.5. THW Kiel – Like Barcelona, Kiel is loading up on younger talent, which many pay off in the long-term but could lead to disappointing results in the interim.6.

Luxury hotel ditching key cards after hackers strike

first_img Tuesday, January 31, 2017 Tags: Austria, Technology Share << Previous PostNext Post >> PARIS — An Austrian luxury hotel says it’s ditching electronic room cards for old-fashioned locks and keys after having their systems frozen by blackmail-hungry hackers.The husband-and-wife management of Romantik Seehotel Jaegerwirt, in the Austrian Alps, says that one recent infection with ransom software resulted in the complete shutdown of hotel computers.They say they were forced to pay roughly 1,500 euros (nearly $1,600) worth of electronic currency to restore their network.Several publications incorrectly reported that the ransomware infection resulted in guests being locked into or out of their rooms.In a series of emails, the hotel said Tuesday that the infection only resulted in new guests being temporarily unable to get keys to their rooms.Hotel co-manager Christina Brandstaetter says the new arrivals were treated to champagne while they waited.

With court defeat GOP health law effort now aimed at 16

first_img“Obamacare is fundamentally broken,” said House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, who said repeal efforts would continue. But he declined to guarantee a vote on a replacement plan this year and said, “It’s very difficult to deal with it when you have a president that fundamentally disagrees with us. And so the struggle will continue.”“We’ll continue to pick away at the law,” said Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., a leader of Senate GOP efforts to craft a bill responding to a court victory that never came. “But ultimately our goal is to repeal and replace, and that’s not going to be possible until after the 2016 elections,” when Republicans hope for a GOP president.That leaves Republicans mostly using efforts to void or dramatically weaken the health care overhaul to contrast their views with Obama’s for voters.“I believe 2016 will be a national referendum on repealing Obamacare,” said Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, who’s seeking his party’s presidential nomination.Yet though few would admit it, the court’s ruling caused many Republicans to exhale.By leaving intact federal subsidies that help millions afford health care, the ruling lets Republicans bash Obama’s law in their 2016 campaigns without having to quickly help those who would have lost assistance. GOP lawmakers are divided over how — and even whether — to help those losing subsidies, and failure to do so could have created many angry voters. Mesa family survives lightning strike to home Check your body, save your life Four benefits of having a wireless security system Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall The decision was a relief to the health care industry, which feared chaos in the insurance market, and business groups hoping Congress would now turn to making specific changes in the law to ease employers’ costs.In Thursday’s ruling, the justices by 6-3 left intact subsidies that help 8.7 million people buy health insurance — most of whom analysts say couldn’t otherwise afford coverage.Conservative plaintiffs said the law’s wording limited that aid to states running their own insurance marketplaces — not the three-dozen states using the federal website HealthCare.org. The law’s defenders said killing those subsidies would destabilize health insurance by increasingly leaving only sicker, costlier people with coverage — raising everyone’s rates.“Congress passed the Affordable Care Act to improve health insurance markets, not to destroy them,” Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in the majority opinion, using the law’s formal name. Roberts’ deciding vote found the law constitutional in 2012.“We should start calling this law SCOTUScare,” said dissenting Justice Antonin Scalia, using the court’s acronym. Top Stories “There isn’t some sort of, that sword of Damocles hanging over our heads that people are going to lose their care in 30 days or something,” said Rep. Greg Walden, R-Ore., who heads House GOP campaign efforts.Republicans have promised to repeal and replace Obama’s law since its 2010 enactment, but have yet to rally behind a plan doing that.Had the GOP-backed lawsuit by conservatives succeeded, the 34 states likeliest to lose subsidies included many that will be pivotal in next year’s elections. That included Florida, a key presidential state where a national high of 1.3 million people could have lost assistance, plus Pennsylvania, Illinois, Ohio, Wisconsin and New Hampshire, where GOP senators could face tight re-election battles and worried about constituents losing aid.“The court has saved Republicans from themselves,” said former Rep. Tom Davis of Virginia, who once led the House Republican political organization.It took just minutes for both sides to use the ruling for political fundraising. GOP presidential hopeful Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor, emailed for money to stop “the overreaches of the last six years,” while Senate Democrats warned that Republicans have “pledged to destroy Obamacare.” New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Top ways to honor our heroes on Veterans Day Comments   Share   Savoring his triumph at the White House, Obama noted that his law has had five years to take hold and said: “This is not about the Affordable Care Act as legislation, or Obamacare as a political football. This is health care in America.”Even so, Republicans had little reason to back off, especially those concerned about primaries from conservative challengers. An April Associated Press-GfK Poll showed that 71 percent of Republicans oppose the law, compared to 33 percent of independents and 14 percent of Democrats.“We’ve got to put something on the president’s desk, not just a repeal but what are we going to do, what’s our alternative,” said Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kan.In the latest potential wedge between conservatives and Boehner, the speaker said he had not decided whether to use streamlined procedures that could avoid a Senate filibuster. Conservatives want to use those rules, but that device can be used only rarely and some Republicans want to save it for something Obama might sign, like deficit reduction.___Associated Press writer Erica Werner contributed to this report.Copyright © The Associated Press.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court’s resounding rejection of a conservative attempt to gut President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul won’t stop Republicans from attacking the law they detest. But now, their efforts will be chiefly about teeing up the issue for the 2016 presidential and congressional elections.The court’s decision left GOP lawmakers stunned and uncertain about their next steps. Most agreed they would continue trying to annul the entire law and erase individual pieces of it, like its taxes on medical devices. Yet many also conceded they have little leverage to force Obama to scale back — let alone kill — one of his most treasured legislative achievements. Sponsored Stories last_img read more

It was just tossed in the air and did not turn over at all and landed on the ground. So we obviously thought that was not right. He picked the coin up and flipped it to tails, and he flipped it to tails and he flipped it without giving me a chance to make a recall there. It was confusing.”“Yeah, it was odd,” Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer said. “He went to flip the coin, and it just went up and went down.”It was certainly an unexpected turn of events in a game that featured more than its fair share of crazy plays.“No, especially on that beautiful grass,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said when asked if he’s ever seen a coin flip like that. Arians never got an explanation for what exactly happened, but given how things transpired, he probably won’t require one.Whether or not the Packers got a raw deal will likely depend on your rooting interests. It’s clear from the video the coin never made a single end-over-end rotation and needed to be tossed again, though if Rodgers was going to base his call on what side of the coin was facing up pre-flip, then it’s understandable why he might be a bit miffed. Now that it’s over, has anyone ever seen a coin toss like this? #GBvsAZ pic.twitter.com/zpRkYc217A— Chris Clark (@ChrisClark_) January 17, 2016Packers captain Aaron Rodgers called “tails” just before the coin was sent flying into the air and before hit the turf without ever flipping. There was some confusing upon its landing, and upon a re-flip, the coin came up “heads” again. Comments   Share   Packers coach Mike McCarthy seemed to be at peace with the flip(s), while Arians was understandably pleased.“I don’t know what happened with the coin toss,” he said. “I’m glad he flipped it the second time.
