Former PM Chretien on Attawapiskat People have to move sometimes

first_img(Former prime minister Jean Chretien. File/Photo)Jorge Barrera APTN National NewsFormer Liberal prime minister Jean Chretien said “sometimes” First Nation communities need to be moved because “isolation” makes it difficult “to have economic activities in some of these areas.”Chretien was in Ottawa Tuesday as a guest of Peter Harder—the point-man on the Trudeau Liberal government’s transition into power—who was officially sworn into the Senate, along with six other appointees, including Murray Sinclair, the former chair of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.Chretien was the Indian Affairs minister under former prime minister Pierre Trudeau who introduced the 1969 White Paper which sought to wipe out the distinct legal status of “Indian” and absorb First Nation people into the rest of Canadian society.The former prime minister was asked by reporters about what he would do with the Attawapiskat crisis.The Cree community in Ontario’s James Bay region declared a state of emergency Saturday after recording 11 suicide attempts in a 24-hour time span. Attawapiskat sits about 90 kilometres from a De Beers diamond mine.Chretien said sometimes communities aren’t viable.“The problem is sometimes you cannot. You know, it’s—you know, people have to move sometimes,” Chretien told reporters on Parliament Hill. “It’s desirable to stay if they want to stay, but it’s not always possible. So you cannot have a statement that is generic. You know it’s extremely difficult. It’s one case at a time. Some, and you know, and it’s difficult culturally for them all the time.”Chretien said he was the longest serving Indian Affairs minister in Canadian history, serving six years, two months, three days and “a few hours.”He said the biggest problem facing communities like Attawapiskat was “isolation,” but First Nation people were “nostalgic” about the past.“It’s difficult to have economic activities in some of these areas,” said Chretien. “When I quit politics in ’84, for a few years, I kept working with the Natives. I went to northern Manitoba, and you know, it’s extremely difficult to have a life there. But they traditional. They want to be close to the land. They are nostalgic about the past when they were going hunting and fishing and it takes time.”Chretien said “time” is needed to let First Nation people catch up with modernity.“You know, when I was minister, I think the first year there was about a dozen Indians who graduated from university. Now, it’s thousands and thousands,” said Chretien. “It takes time. I was in Old Crow one day. The first machine they ever seen was a helicopter; the same when they saw the man landing on the moon, about the same time.”The Indian Affairs department is now called Indigenous Affairs. The name was changed by the Trudeau government from Aboriginal Affairs.jbarrera@aptn.ca@JorgeBarreralast_img read more

Yemen Security Council urges timely inclusive political transition

26 January 2012Yemen’s forthcoming presidential election will be an opportunity for the country to embark on a transitional process that strengthens national dialogue and leads to a political system that will be more inclusive and open to greater participation by all citizens, says the Security Council. In a press statement issued last night after a briefing by Jamal Benomar, the Secretary-General’s Special Adviser for Yemen, the Council welcomed the progress towards the implementation of the political transition, based on the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) initiative.Warring factions in Yemen signed an agreement in November on a transitional settlement under which President Ali Abdullah Saleh agreed to hand over power to Vice President Abed Rabbo Mansour al-Hadi. A new Government of National Unity was formed and presidential elections have been scheduled for 21 February.The Council reiterated that the GCC initiative and its implementation mechanism must be fulfilled in a transparent and timely manner, and in a spirit of inclusion and reconciliation.In his briefing yesterday, Mr. Benomar told the Council that for the transition to succeed, a concerted effort is required to ensure the participation of youth and other important constituencies, including the southern movements and the so-called Al-Houthi group in the north, in the political process.“As an immediate step, all efforts should now be focused on ensuring the holding of peaceful elections,” he added.Voicing concern over deteriorating security and the increasing presence of Al-Qaida in Yemen, the Council reiterated its unequivocal condemnation of terrorism in all its forms and manifestations.“The members of the Security Council urged all the parties in Yemen to reject violence, refrain from provocations, and cooperate with the Military Affairs Committee to fully implement the [GCC] implementation mechanism and Security Council resolution,” said the statement that was issued to the press by Ambassador Baso Sangqu of South Africa, which holds the Council’s presidency this month.“The members of the Security Council reiterated that all those responsible for human rights violations and abuses, including acts of violence, must be held accountable. They reaffirmed their commitment to the territorial integrity, sovereignty and unity of Yemen.”The Council also stated that it remains gravely concerned over the humanitarian situation in Yemen, including the severe food insecurity, alarming levels of malnutrition, and increasing numbers of internally displaced persons. It urged donors to support the $447 million humanitarian appeal for Yemen this year, and called on the Government of National Unity to begin to address the humanitarian and economic challenges facing the country. The Council also welcomed the World Bank’s efforts to resume its programmes in Yemen. read more

NSF turns to ancient pottery to improve modern heat resistant ceramics

first_img Explore further (PhysOrg.com) — In order to better understand how ceramics are able to resist heat, the National Science Foundation has awarded grants totaling half a million dollars to three research groups to look into how the ancient Greeks made their pottery, a process which allowed for as many as 100,000 vases to survive from ancient antiquity to now – a period of some twenty five hundred years. The hope is that such research will reveal more about the nature of iron-spinel chemistry, which is what gives ceramics an ability to withstand heat while remaining chemically stable. Getting a better grip on how ceramics work is critical to future space flight technological efforts, as ceramics are used to help space vehicles withstand both extreme hot and cold temperatures. © 2011 PhysOrg.com Citation: NSF turns to ancient pottery to improve modern heat resistant ceramics (2012, January 4) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-01-nsf-ancient-pottery-modern-resistant.html This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Deciphering the elements of iconic pottery In order for space vehicles to work properly, they have to be able to withstand the cold of space, which can be as low as 250 degrees Fahrenheit below zero. Then, some vehicles have to be able to withstand the extreme heat of reentry, which can be as hot as 3000 degrees. Hot enough to melt most any metal. As most know, the Space Shuttle was fitted with ceramic tiles on its underbelly to keep the vehicle from overheating as it came back to Earth, which was made all the more apparent when damage to the tiles resulted in the loss of Columbia in 2003. But ceramics are used in other components as well, and will be needed as more ambitious projects are undertaken in the future. Equally important is the ability of ceramics to remain chemically unchanged when subjected to such temperature variations. Such properties allow for the construction of components that minimize expansion and contraction under such stresses, which can be critical for long term operations in space. This is why the NSF has turned to research scientists to see if the ancient Greeks can provide some insight.Such research will involve using something called x-ray absorption near edge structure (XANES) – which is a special type of spectroscopy, along with other types of x-ray techniques, to find out what has gone on with iron oxidation in the pottery under study. What’s needed is a better understanding of the molecular structure of iron minerals that were used to make the pottery to help researchers in designing newer and better types of ceramics for future space missions, whether manned or otherwise.What’s interesting is that it is apparently the degree to which the iron in the ancient ceramic pottery oxidized that caused the distinctive red and black colorations that made it so attractive to those that worked with it all those years ago.last_img read more

March 25, 2014 – As long as inexpensive statins, which lower cholesterol, are readily available and patients do not mind taking them, it does not make sense to do a heart comuted tomography (CT) scan to measure how much plaque has built up in a patient’s coronary arteries before prescribing the pills, according to a new study by researchers at UC San Francisco.The researchers created a statistical model to predict whether or not it made sense to do the scan, using data from the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis and other sources. They modeled the effects of statin treatment in 10,000 55-year-old women with high cholesterol and a 10-year risk of coronary heart disease of 7.5 percent. The model predicted that giving statins to all of them would prevent 32 heart attacks, cause 70 cases of statin-induced muscle disease and add 1,108 years to their cumulative life expectancy. Then, they looked at how a coronary artery calcium test, or CAC test, could be used to target statin therapy only to those women who the CAC test showed were at heightened risk of coronary heart disease. They found that this strategy would save money on statin costs and expose fewer women to side effects from statins but would not prevent as many heart attacks. Moreover, the test itself exposes the women to a small risk of radiation-induced cancer and costs about $200 to $400 per scan. The study incorporated data from MESA and many other sources to create a cost-effectiveness model. The researchers tested whether changing the other model inputs made a difference, and it turned out that the only critical factors were the cost of statins and the degree to which they decreased quality of life for patients.

A collection of photos of beautiful ‘street cats’ around the world, from Italy to Japan.5 cool things to experience in JapanBlogger and budget traveller Kash Bhattacharya shares his top things to see and do in Japan. A ‘cat café’ is a cat-themed establishment serving drinks and maybe food, but where the main attraction is definitely cats. We present a purrfect nine of the best cat cafés around the world.Yes, it’s a café populated by cats. How it works is that you pay a fee, usually on an hourly rate, so they can pat and play with the cats in a form of ‘supervised indoor pet rental’. The café staff are usually human.The cat café is a relatively recent phenomenon. The very first opened in Taipei, Taiwan in 1998, drawing not only locals but tourists from Japan, a famously cat-loving country. Japan got its own cat café in 2004 when the first opened in Osaka, Now there at least 39 in Tokyo alone.Cat cafés have strict rules (for their customers) to keep their feline occupants in good health and order. For example, to make sure that the kitties are not disturbed too much, as they don’t like getting their tails pulled by small children and sometimes just want to be left alone for a snooze.1. Cat Café Neko no Niwa, SingaporeAs well as serving coffee, many cat cafés are on a mission to raise awareness of cat welfare issues, such as the plight of stray and abandoned cats. Cat Café Neko no Niwa in Singapore (‘neko’ is Japanese for cat; neko no niwa, cat garden) only adopt stray and rescue cats. Owners Sam and Sue say: “While cat cafes in Japan, Korea and Bangkok usually feature only pedigreed cats… all cats deserved to be loved, [including] the homeless and abandoned ones”. They ‘want to show that non-pedigreed cats can be beautiful and affectionate companions’. Its residents include Emma, ‘a rare find – only 15% of all white cats with blue eyes are not deaf’.http://www.youtube.com/embed/feamOL22tdI2. Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium, London, EnglandAfter a campaign to open a cat café in London, Lady Dinah’s Cat Emporium opened in Shoreditch on 1 March 2014 with a cast of rescue cats. Meet Mue, Biscuit, Romeo and the other cats for a fee of £5 for a two-hour session. Already it is proving hugely popular and reservations are required – it is booked up until to June, but they plan to install a ‘kitty cam’ so you can see what they’re up to from afar.http://www.youtube.com/embed/yiUQq04nhwA3. Le Café des Chats, Paris, FranceWhile Parisians are better known as lovers of lap dogs than kitty cats, in 2013 Le Café des Chats opened in the Marais. It houses formerly abandoned and homeless cats, chosen for their ‘social character to the other cats and people’. Being Paris, it’s not just a tearoom, but also a restaurant, although serving charcuterie to the cats is not permitted.http://www.youtube.com/embed/lI9LdtTWjCk4. Temari no Ouchi / Nyafe Melange Tokyo, JapanTokyo’s cat cafés provide a service for the city’s many cat-loving residents who don’t have the space, or are not allowed, to keep a kitty of their own. Not only are there at least 39 cat cafés in Tokyo, but there are cafés specialising in rare breeds, black cats and… fat cats. Yes, really. Tokyo also caters for other animal-deprived souls – there are rabbit cafés too, while one cat café also has goats. Try Temari no Ouchi or Nyafe Melange, in the lovely neighborhood of Shibuya.http://www.youtube.com/embed/BUN8iEvUL3Y5. Il Neko Café, Turin, ItalyItaly’s first cat café opened on 5 April 2014 in Vanchiglia, Turin. The cats, including silver-and-white tabby Bernard, who arrived at Il Neko ‘as black as a chimney sweep’, each have their own space, plus a special communal play room with games and lots of catnip.http://www.youtube.com/embed/PhpSIjzcjf06.

Purr Cat Café Club, Bangkok, ThailandBangkok’s Purr Cat Café Club, owned by sitcom actress Rattanarat Uataweekul, houses 14 Persians, as well as a cat beautician and a shop selling ‘cute feline outfits’ (not sure if these are for the cats or the customers). The cat rules say ‘don’t poke them, tease them, pick them up or feed them human cake’.http://www.youtube.com/embed/f-hanjJMiqo9. La Gatoteca, Madrid, SpainMuch as they’d like to house many more poor, needy kitty cats, La Gatoteca can only cater for 15 furry friends, but they aim to find forever homes for all the paws that pad through their doors.

Have marina plans run aground

first_imgLatest setback for Paphos marina one of many for Paphos and LarnacaTHE rejection this week of what had been the winning tender for Paphos marina has raised concerns over the viability of the government’s commitment to transform Cyprus into an upmarket boating destination for the eastern Mediterranean.The failure of the Poseidon consortium’s €215 million bid, a full ten years after the bidding process was first launched, is mirrored by years of thwarted attempts to transform Larnaca port and marina further along the coast.The long delays in the construction of the two marinas have various interrelated and complex factors, say officials.“It is complicated, it has to do with the court, the government, the economic crisis and other factors,” Larnaca mayor Andreas Vyras told the Sunday Mail.“These are huge projects which need very detailed planning,” said Dimitris Constantinou, spokesman for the communications and works ministry which is responsible for the development of Larnaca port and marina. “The funding has to be carefully considered and all the necessary arrangements have to be finalised so nothing will go wrong.”“It is a complex thing to find a solution that is the best for local residents as well as offering a return on investment for the investors,” said Natasa Pilides, director general of the Cyprus Investment Promotion Agency (Cipa).But does it really need so many years to finalise a deal which should be so immensely profitable for investors, municipalities and the country?Artist’s impression of the Poseidon plan for Paphos marina. The tender was rejected last weekIn the case of Larnaca, the plans for the expansion and privatisation of the marina have been plagued by years of delays and failure to find investors. The government struck a deal with Zenon Consortium back in 2010 for a €700 million project to transform both the existing port and marina. The consortium failed to raise the necessary funds even though the government extended the deadline up to 20 times until 2015 when the deal fell through.Much of the blame fell on the recession and the 2013 banking crisis.But according to the head of the Larnaca Chamber of Commerce, Othonas Theodoulou, the problems predate those events. In the beginning, the upgrading of Larnaca marina and the port were two separate projects. When it was decided to merge the two, the chamber objected, arguing that the port project would delay the marina. Theodoulou told the Sunday Mail that they have been proved right.“If they were not merged, Larnaca would have a nice marina now,” he said.Where Paphos is concerned, the tender was first announced as far back as 2007. Soon after, in 2008, the project was frozen by lengthy court cases after various developers bidding for the project sued each other. It was not until 2015 that the supreme court finally awarded the contract to Poseidon Consortium. Then began another lengthy process in which Poseidon had to provide proof of available funds, which the marina management committee decided on Wednesday it had failed to do.The project has now been offered to Pafilia developers, the only other tender on the list, which has to prove it has adequate funding for its €175m plan for the marina. Poseidon, meanwhile, has announced it will appeal Wednesday’s decision at the supreme court.Head of the Paphos Chamber of Commerce Andreas Demetriades believes that previous governments were to blame for allowing the court cases to delay such an important project.“It was a mistake by the then ministries not to move on with the next tender but instead wait for the final decision of the court,” he said. “There was no need to wait for so many years; it was something where so many benefits could have occurred for so many people.”He thinks it would have been far better to press ahead with the project and then pay damages to the company which had lost the bid if the courts ruled in their favour.He is confident that this time with different people in charge such a delay will not be tolerated.“We will ask the ministry to proceed with the next tender and if Poseidon is found to be eligible for damages that is no problem,” he added.His statement suggests that Paphos marina will become a reality, though this has been claimed many times in the past.Pafilia has already said they have the funds available. Though they still have to prove it, they are the biggest developer in Cyprus.They are currently constructing their flagship development, ONE, a building of 37 floors on Limassol’s beach front which will be the tallest seafront tower in Europe when finished and are building major residences around Cyprus.As for Larnaca, the mayor is confident that a contract will be signed by the end of the year. There are now five solid-looking investors very interested whose plans are currently being evaluated. Cipa’s Pilides said the project had now inspired the right level of interest and she was hopeful that a deal could be reached soon.Artist’s impression of the now defunct Zenon project for Larnaca marinaA glimpse at what is at stake for Larnaca and Paphos can be seen in the completed marina in Limassol and the one under construction in Ayia Napa. The Limassol marina which opened in 2013 attracts thousands of visitors every day. It is not simply a specially designed harbour with moorings for pleasure yachts and boats but a destination for living, yachting, dining and shopping. The Limassol company running the harbour has sold most of their luxurious beachfront villas, has 41 commercial deployments, 27 shops and boutiques and 650 berths.Work started on Ayia Napa marina last year and should be completed in five years. Like Limassol it will have both a residential and commercial use with 190 luxury one- to four-bedroom apartments in two twisting towers, 29 villas, a 600-berth full-service marina and boatyard as well as shops and waterfront restaurants.Mayor Yiannis Karousos expects it to be as successful as the Limassol marina, with yachts travelling around the island and both local and international tourists visiting all year round.It is a future that Paphos and Larnaca are eager to share.Changing landscapesBuilding the marinas would change the landscape of Larnaca and Paphos.The Paphos marina, situated in the area of Potima between Kissonerga and Peyia will cover an area of 155,000 square metres, 42,000 of which will be residential and commercial developments. It will include up to 1,000 berths for boats and ships of various sizes. Pafilia’s project has a cost of €175 million. More details have not yet been made public. A spokeswoman of the company said on Thursday more information will be made available later on.Plans for Larnaca’s marina and port include berths for up to 1,000 boats.It specifies that the total area to be developed has 510,000 square metres which includes the Larnaca port and marina as well as an undeveloped surrounding area.According to the terms of the process, the port area is split into two.The northern part will be used exclusively for port operations, while the southern part will cover an area of 185,000 square metres. This part may be used for large cruise ships as the new plan includes berths for giga yachts and cruise ships.General terms for the development allow for the construction of high rise buildings up to 15 floors. Investors will have the option to build residences, shopping areas, offices, restaurants, recreational or sports venues.

Joint Center for Housing Studies That study found that millennials could form 24 million new households by 2025 Three main factors have been holding millennials back from moving out said the Harvard study: A weak job market for recent graduates high debt from student loans and tightened lending standards The report also found that the number of young people who buy homes increases as their incomes grow As and the economy improves millennials–which the study defined as those born between the years of 1985 and 2004–will make decisions about their living arrangements that will by extension

Contact us at editors@timecomBeyond being the founder of Sci-Hub the world’s largest pirate site for academic papers and risking arrest as a result Alexandra Elbakyan is a typical science graduate student: idealistic hard-working and relatively poor In 1988 when Elbakyan was born in Kazakhstan the Soviet Union was just beginning to crumble Books about dinosaurs and evolution fascinated her early on “I also remember reading Soviet science books that provided scientific explanations for miraculous events thought previously to be produced by gods or magic” She was hooked At university in the Kazakh capital she discovered a knack for computer hacking It appealed to her because “unlike higher programming languages that are created by people and are volatile” making and breaking computer security systems requires a deeper knowledge of mathematics and the primitive “assembly language” that computers use to move information Journal paywalls are an example of something that works in the reverse direction making communication less open and efficient Alexandra Elbakyan Related content: Like so many of Kazakhstan’s brightest Elbakyan left the country to pursue her dreams First she worked in Moscow in computer security for a year and then she used the earnings to launch herself to the University of Freiburg in Germany in 2010 where she joined a brain-computer interface project She was lured by the possibility that such an interface could one day translate the thought content from one mind and upload it to another But the work fell short of her dreams “The lab activity was spiritless” she says “There was no feeling of pursuing a higher goal” Elbakyan did find a community of like-minded researchers in transhumanism a lofty field that encompasses not just neuroscience and computer technology but also philosophy and even speculative fiction about the future of humanity She discovered a transhumanism conference in the United States and set her heart on attending but she struggled to get a US visa She was rejected the first time and only barely made it to the conference With the remainder of her summer visa she did a research internship at Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta When she got back to Kazakhstan frustration with the barriers that scientists face would soon lead her to create Sci-Hub—an awe-inspiring act of altruism or a massive criminal enterprise depending on whom you ask Publisher paywalls are the bane of scientists and students in Kazakhstan she says and the existing solution was cumbersome: Post a request on Twitter to #IcanhazPDF with your email address Eventually a generous researcher at some university with access to the journal will send you the paper What was needed she decided was a system that allowed that paper to be shared—with absolutely everyone She had the computer skills—and contacts with other pirate websites—to make that happen and so Sci-Hub was born Elbakyan sees the site as a natural extension of her dream of helping humans share good ideas “Journal paywalls are an example of something that works in the reverse direction” she says “making communication less open and efficient” Running a pirate site and being sued for what is likely to be millions of dollars in damages hasn’t stopped Elbakyan from pursuing an academic career Her neuroscience research is on hold but she has enrolled in a history of science master’s program at a “small private university” in an undisclosed location Appropriately enough her thesis focuses on scientific communication “I perceive Sci-Hub as a practical side of my research” “Our intention is to improve on the infrastructure of the NRC to ensure it increases passengers and freight movements. he will accept it in good faith in view of his
