Highway Cleanup Campaign Begins

first_imgHundreds of kilometres of Nova Scotia highways will soon get their annual spring cleaning with the kick-off of the 2016 Adopt-A-Highway program. “Adopt-A-Highway volunteers have been making Nova Scotia highways look better since 1993,” said Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal Minister Geoff MacLellan. “All Nova Scotians can help these hard-working volunteers by slowing down and being extra cautious when they see these groups at work. “More importantly, drivers can best support these volunteers by not littering. Litter is not only unsightly, it can be a hazard for motorists, cyclists and wildlife.” The program co-ordinates the efforts of volunteers who pick up trash alongside roadways. Last year, 2,543 volunteers cleaned along 940 kilometres of highways and 15 interchanges. They gathered 4,284 bags of garbage and 272 bags of recyclable material. “Volunteers wear fluorescent safety vests and may be close to the road when picking up litter,” said Gina Bain, co-ordinator, Adopt-A-Highway program. “Our volunteers are out there doing work that benefits all Nova Scotians and we want to make sure they’re safe.” Adopt-A-Highway is an internationally renowned roadside litter cleanup program. It protects and preserves the environmental health of the landscape and maintains scenic routes for motorists. More information about the Adopt-A-Highway program is available at http://www.adoptahighwayns.ca/.last_img read more

Trudeau stresses balancing economy environment during brief Stampede visit

first_imgCALGARY — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the only way to get projects like the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion built is by finding compromise between growing the economy and protecting the environment.Trudeau was speaking at a reception for Liberal Party donors during the Calgary Stampede, where he had fewer public appearances than in past years.The prime minister took aim at his conservative opponents in his remarks to dozens of party faithful in a downtown Calgary cafe. He says these days a government can’t just dictate where a pipeline will be built like Canada’s first prime minister, John A. Macdonald, did for the railroad.Earlier in the day Trudeau greeted crowds and served pancakes at a community Stampede breakfast in the riding of Calgary’s only Liberal MP, Kent Hehr.There, university student Isabelle Reynolds confronted Trudeau over the treatment of Mi’kmaq opponents of a Nova Scotia natural gas project.Trudeau told her he had been listening to concerns over the project, but Reynolds told reporters afterward she was not satisfied with the prime minister’s response.A small group of yellow-vest-clad demonstrators held anti-Trudeau signs outside the donor event.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

UNICEF calls for a joint vaccination plan in Sudan

Speaking at a press briefing in Geneva, UNICEF Spokesperson Christopher Mr. Boulierac said the agency had begun the vaccination campaign in January 2015 when the first outbreaks had been reported. UNICEF, he continued, is urging all parties to the conflict to commit to the joint vaccination operational plan that has been in place over the last three years.Mr. Boulierac said that access for humanitarian aid has not been granted to the three inaccessible areas of the Nuba Mountains, the Blue Nile and the Jebel Mara of North Darfur, and as a result, children there had not been vaccinated.Currently, he added, UNICEF is “fully operational,” and he hoped the call for a cessation of hostilities would “translate into vaccination of the 165,000 children under the age of five in those inaccessible areas.”Sudan’s children, said Mr. Boulierac, continue to be affected by outbreaks of diseases including measles, dengue fever and diarrhoea. He added that it is children that continue to bear the greatest burden as the “double victims” of conflict and chronic under development. In additional, some two million children were severely and acutely malnourished, and in all 18 states of Sudan, malnutrition rates were over the emergency threshold of 15 per cent. Mr. Boulierac also noted that the UNICEF Sudan humanitarian appeal for 2015 was 72 per cent underfunded. Total funding requirements in 2015 are approximately $ 117 million, of which almost $ 33 million has been received. read more

I would love to be recognised as a widow but I accept in the eyes of the law and the Government that I am not.”What I wasn’t prepared to accept was how the Government viewed my children – how they could treat my grieving, bereaved children as insignificant.”I am such a private person but to sit and accept that this is how it is made me say, ‘No, this is wrong’. Siobhan McLaughlin Supreme Court judgment Loading Loading Zoom Previous Page Note  1 of  34 0 An unmarried mother has won a Supreme Court battle to access widowed parent’s allowance for her bereaved children.Siobhan McLaughlin, 46, was refused the benefit after her partner, John Adams, died from cancer in January 2014 because the couple, who had four children and were together for 23 years, were not married or in a civil partnership.She initially won a case after claiming unlawful discrimination based on her marital status, but that ruling was later overturned by the Court of Appeal.But, by a majority of four justices to one, the Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that the current law on the allowance is “incompatible” with Human Rights legislation.Giving the lead judgment, the court’s President Lady Hale said: “The allowance exists because of the responsibilities of the deceased and the survivor towards their children. » Ms McLaughlin, a special needs classroom assistant from Armoy, Co Antrim, was with her partner John Adams, a groundsman, for 23 years and they had four children – Rebecca, 15, Billy, 16, Lisa, 21, and 23-year-old Stuart.Following Mr Adams’s death, Ms McLaughlin had to take on an evening job after being refused widowed parent’s allowance by the Northern Ireland Department for Communities.

Government bill would end exemptions that allow child marriage

first_img http://jrnl.ie/3221694 By Gráinne Ní Aodha Feb 3rd 2017, 5:34 PM Share79 Tweet Email A NEW DOMESTIC Violence Bill, published today by Tánaiste Frances Fitzgerald, aims to improve the protections available to people experiencing domestic abuse.This includes a repeal of exemptions which allow persons under the age of 18 to marry and provisions aimed at including the child’s opinion in proceedings relating to them.Among the changes provided by the bill are an emergency barring order that can last up to eight days; and the option of victims giving evidence by live television link so as to avoid the risk of intimidation.There are also plans to bring forward amendments to the Bill so it will apply to those in “intimate and committed” relationships but who are not cohabiting.June Tinsley, Head of Advocacy, Barnardos said that the inclusion of children’s voices was particularly welcome, as children have often been forgotten in the debate. The proposal of hearing their views and experiences through an expert in cases affecting them will improve judicial decisions. 16,651 Views Currently there are no facilities in which this contact can occur, and we know that sometimes the person who is the victim of domestic abuse has to supervise the contact themselves between their child and the abuser.Currently, the law states that you must be 18 to marry – unless you have an ‘Exemption Order’. An Exemption Order can be applied for at the Circuit Family Court, and granted if:There are good reasons for your applicationThe granting of such an Exemption Order is in the best interests of the parties to the intended marriage.The bill needs to be approved by the Oireachtas before it’s enacted.In 2013, 29 of the 21,770 marriages registered involved parties under the age of 18.Read: Police were called 2,738 times about domestic abuse over ChristmasRead: Russia has softened punishments for domestic abuse convictions Government bill would end exemptions that allow child marriage The bill needs to be approved by the Oireachtas before it’s enacted.center_img Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article “However, clarity needs to be provided around who is considered a child’s view expert in this legislation and in the Children and Family Relationships Act 2015.”Tinsely said that there’s a real ‘dearth’ of services for those affected by domestic violence, which was another aspect that warranted greater scrutiny.“One such service needed is the establishment of child contact centres across the country where children can safely have supervised access in those cases where supervised access is court ordered. 23 Comments Friday 3 Feb 2017, 5:34 PM Image: Shutterstock Short URL Image: Shutterstocklast_img read more

first_imgCyclone Oli : les populations évacuées, Tahiti et Moorea en alerte rougePolynésie – Comme le redoutait le Haut-commissariat, la dépression tropicale Oli s’est transformée en cyclone, déclenchant le passage à l’alerte rouge à Tahiti et Moorea.Après avoir frappé l’île de Bora Bora où 700 touristes bloqués ont été mis en sécurité dans trois hôtels, le cyclone Oli menace désormais Tahiti et Moorea. Ces deux îles sont passées en alerte rouge, a indiqué le Haut-commissariat, et la circulation y est interdite depuis mercredi soir.Au moins 400 personnes ont dû être évacuées sur ces deux îles, en particulier les habitants des bords de mer et des embouchures de rivières où les vagues pourraient atteindre sept mètres.Passé jeudi matin à proximité des îles deBora Bora, Maupiti et Raiatea, dans l’archipel des Iles Sous le Vent, Oli a détruit de nombreuses habitations et des pontons.

Pogba finally clears the air with Jose Mourinho

first_imgDuring a press conference ahead of Manchester United’s match vs Juventus, Paul Pogba wanted to clear the air with Jose Mourinho.So much has been said about the relationship between Paul Pogba and Jose Mourinho at Manchester United, both men really did have major differences at the start of the season.But as the season progressed and they started to understand each other a little bit more, manager and player finally seem to have reached common ground and they are starting to get positive results for the squad.The test they have this Wednesday will be the most difficult of the whole season, but that will be only the start of a gruesome week for the Red Devils as they get ready to visit Etihad Stadium next weekend to play against Manchester City.Pogba needed to come out and clear things about his alleged bad relationship with Jose Mourinho, a smart move on his part because the squad currently cannot afford to have any distractions that will tamper with their aspirations to keep improving in every single competition they play.Pogba has also proved that he is committed to the cause, he has led the team to good results lately and is already shaking off the criticism coming from the fans and an important part of the press.We’re #MUFC – we fight until the end 👊 pic.twitter.com/x5F46GXwOi— Manchester United (@ManUtd) November 3, 2018“I would classify it as a good relationship between the coach and the player, it’s the same way as everybody,” said Pogba this Tuesday via Sky Sports.“I’m just the player, I do what he tells me to do because he’s the boss, he’s the manager. I listen and that’s it. I enjoy it. I listen and do it with happiness.”“I’m still playing and I’m happy to play. The manager is the one who chooses who will be captain.”“If he takes the armband it doesn’t change anything for me – I just want to play, perform, that’s my job and give my best for everybody, for the fans the club, that’s it. It didn’t affect me. Nothing changed really.”“Choosing to come back to Manchester United was my choice. Juventus were playing Champions League and Manchester were playing Europa League. I knew, first of all, I wouldn’t play Champions League and I was very happy.”harry maguire, manchester UnitedMaguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…“I made my choice and don’t regret it at all. I know Manchester the last few years are not being at the top but I came back just to help the team and try to come back at the top so we are on the way.”“We have a lot of goals so, for me, no it’s not strange. It’s a choice and I don’t regret it all. I’m very happy to come back to Manchester United and wear a shirt and everything. I’m sure we will come back to our best,” he added.Great result, up to the next one 👊🏾 @ManUtd #MUFC pic.twitter.com/Je1Ge5OcDv— Paul Pogba (@paulpogba) October 28, 2018“Do I look sad? I’m happy. Like I said again, I’m happy to wear the shirt, I’m really happy to come back to Manchester United wearing this shirt playing for this team, this big club,” said Paul.“Obviously when you play in a big club like that there is always talk about this club. We know anything can go on but on the pitch always happy, always with a smile, fighting for my teammates’ club and fans. That’s what I do and I’m really happy to do that,” he concluded.Manchester United is about to play against Juventus in Torino, where they will try to avoid getting one step closer to an early Champions League elimination and also attempt to defeat one of the most competitive clubs in European football today.Paul Pogba will also get a lot of mixed feelings for this match, as he faces his former club and is convinced that the Juventus fans will give him a warm welcome after the incredible spell he lived with the Vecchia Signora.Pending on what actually happens during the game at Juventus Stadium, there is no doubt that the absolute favorite to win this match is the Italian club but Manchester United is well-known for surprising top squads when they least expect it under Jose Mourinho’s tutelage.A look back at today’s #UCL training session ahead of Juventus v #MUFC! 👊 pic.twitter.com/6B75VWiQal— Manchester United (@ManUtd) November 6, 2018Who will win this Champions League match on Wednesday, Juventus or Manchester United?

Volkswagen to offer generous compensation to US customers Fund head

first_imgVolkswagen will offer generous compensation packages to the roughly 6,00,000 US owners of diesel vehicles whose emissions are over the legal limit, the head of its claims fund told a German paper.The German car maker has still not decided whether vehicle owners will be offered cash, car buy-backs, repairs or replacement cars, Kenneth Feinberg told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung.Feinberg previously headed the compensation funds for the 11 September, 2001 attacks, BP’s Deepwater Horizon oil spill and General Motors’ ignition switch crashes.On Friday, Volkswagen postponed the publication of its 2015 results and delayed its annual shareholders’ meeting as it struggles to put an exact price on its emissions scandal.More than four months after the scandal broke in the United States, Europe’s leading car maker has still not won approval for a fix for any of the vehicles. Last week it named a new head of its US legal department to help resolve the case.Feinberg told the paper he was unlikely to meet his goal of setting up the claims fund within 60 to 90 days, saying: “My hands are tied as long as VW and the authorities have not overcome their differences.”He said he expected an overwhelming majority to accept the eventual offer, and that VW had given him full authority to set the level.”Look at my prior cases: 97 percent of the victims of 11 September accepted my offer. At GM and BP it was more than 90 percent, too. That has to be my target for VW,” Feinberg said.”It is a purely business transaction, less emotional. I see that from emails I get from vehicle owners, who say things like: ‘Mr. Feinberg, I know I haven’t lost a relative, I just want to be treated fairly.’ They are all quite reasonable.”SHARES FALL SHARPLYFeinberg said he had not yet decided whether to consider claims that the emissions damaged the health of claimants.”I am inclined to not accept that and tell such people they should sue Volkswagen if they want to,” he said.Uncertainty about the financial impact of the scandal on VW’s accounts has increased since the start of the year, sending its shares 26 percent lower.However, Norway’s $850 billion sovereign wealth fund, the world’s largest, told the paper it would remain invested in Volkswagen, in which it holds 1.2 percent.”VW is an important company for Germany, Europe and the world. That’s why we will keep our stake as long as the fund and the company exist,” the fund’s CEO Yngve Slyngstad said.But he added that since 2008 the fund has criticized the ownership structure at Volkswagen, where the Porsche and Piech families hold 31.5 percent of the capital but control 50.7 percent of voting rights.US regulators last month rejected VW’s original plan to fix 2.0 liter diesel cars equipped with software designed to conceal the cars’ true emissions, raising concerns that VW may have to carry out a larger number of costly buy-backs.VW has already promised goodwill packages worth $1,000 to tens of thousands of VW owners in the United States, and the European Commission and European lawmakers have urged it to consider making a similar offer to owners in Europe.The group set aside 6.7 billion euros ($7.5 billion) in the third quarter of 2015 to cover repair costs for vehicles worldwide. Pieper said this might need to be topped up by another 2-3 billion euros.last_img read more

first_imgAt the end of October 2018, the current regulatory approval for the Trans-Tasman alliance between Air New Zealand and Virgin Australia will expire, with the airlines confirming they will not apply for renewal, ending their seven year partnership.Air New Zealand Chief Revenue Officer Cam Wallace says market dynamics on the Tasman have changed and the time is now right for each airline to focus on its own objectives.“Australia is the largest source of inbound visitors to New Zealand and Air New Zealand has built up a significant presence in this market. This move will enable us to deliver a more consistent customer experience by using our own fleet and delivering an improved schedule, which we’ll provide more details about shortly.“We remain fully committed to our other alliance relationships and our overall global airline alliance strategy as a critical success factor in other markets.”Current trans-Tasman alliance arrangements will remain in place until 27 October and customers travelling before this date will be unaffected. Customers booked with Air New Zealand to travel on a Virgin Australia service (or vice versa) after 28 October will be contacted by their booking airline.
