Edmonton Oilers sign Ethan Bear to threeyear contract

first_imgJaydon FlettAPTN National NewsThose who don’t quite follow the National Hockey League may not know the name Ethan Bear, but the 19-year-old from Ochapowace First Nation in Saskatchewan just got signed by the Edmonton Oilers.Bear, who is currently taking part in the Oilers’ development camp, signed a three-year entry level contract and spoke to APTN National News Monday.“It’s a very special feeling, even to get drafted, that’s a big step,” he says. “But to actually be a part of the team, to sign a contract, and be a part of this development camp, it’s really exciting.”Bear got lost in mainstream media coverage largely due to the fact that star forward Connor McDavid was a first overall pick for the Oilers last year. Now, Bear – a fifth-round draft pick in that same draft – is starting to grab some headlines himself.This past season, the 5’11”, 200 pound defenceman racked up 65 points in 69 games for the Seattle Thunderbirds of the WHL.As a defenceman with strong offensive play, Bear may have something to offer the Oilers’ blueline.His advice for other Indigenous youth like himself?“Don’t quit,” he says. “When you do something you love, you’ll have a happy life. Hard work and dedication goes a long way with that.”last_img read more

Government to declare state of emergency as tensions continue

The Government has decided to declare a state of emergency as tensions continue in the country.Minister S.B. Dissanayake said that the cabinet, which met today, decided to declare a 10 day state of emergency. A curfew imposed in Kandy was lifted this morning but was re-imposed in some areas. The violence erupted after a Sinhalese man was killed in the Kandy area resulting in several racially motivated incidents targeting Muslims. He said the move will be to maintain law and order in the country. An angry mob attacked Muslim owned shops and at least one mosque in Digana following a protest.The Police used tear gas to disperse the mob but the tensions continued.Meanwhile, in Theldeniya the Police fired tear gas after an unruly mob, including monks, gathered outside the Theldeniya Police station. The General Secretary of the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) the venerable Galagoda Aththe Gnanasara thera, was among those who visited the house of the victim on Sunday night.The mob which gathered outside the Theldeniya Police station yesterday demanded that a group of suspects arrested over the racially motivated incidents be set free.The latest violence comes just weeks after similar violence erupted in Ampara. (Colombo Gazette) The curfew was imposed in Kandy yesterday after a mob attacked several Muslim owned shops and other property.The Police fired tear gas and later imposed the curfew as violence erupted in Kandy. read more

Fellow Democrat declares Michigan governors roads plan dead

LANSING, Mich. — The minority leader of the Michigan House said Thursday that Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s proposed 45-cents-a-gallon fuel tax hike is dead in the Republican-led Legislature, adding that there are other kinds of tax increases that could pay for much-needed road repairs.Christine Greig’s statements showed a rift among Democrats as the governor makes the case to GOP lawmakers for increased transportation revenue in a state that ranks second to last nationally in per-capita road spending. The deadline for a budget resolution is nearly a month away.Greig declined to say whether her caucus would back the 45-cent increase if it were put up for a vote but said “that’s probably the extreme that won’t happen.” Asked later if the $2.5 billion plan — the linchpin of Whitmer’s budget — is dead, Greig noted majority Republicans’ opposition to it and said: “Yeah, I think it is.”Whitmer as recently as Wednesday defended her proposal while saying she would entertain alternatives, but that GOP legislative leaders had not yet offered a “real” plan to address deteriorating roads and bridges. Republicans have refused to make public what specifically they have presented to Whitmer.But she has criticized their ideas such as effectively shifting sales tax collected at the pump to road funding — much of the $840 million in revenue now goes to schools — and delaying the date to pay off unfunded liabilities in the school employees’ retirement fund.Greig echoed the governor’s critiques but also said residents want to see a “fair-share budget” and “there other things we can do to lower the cost of that 45 cents.”In June, House Democrats unveiled a $1.2 billion proposal that would increase the state’s corporate tax, create a new 6-cents-a-mile tax for heavy trucks and charge bridge tolls to tractor-trailers. It also includes portions of Whitmer’s budget plan, such as raising taxes on certain businesses so they are taxed the same as traditional corporations and restoring tax breaks for pensioners.“The important thing is we have to raise $2.5 billion in new revenue to fix the roads,” Greig said Thursday.A message seeking comment was left with Whitmer.Republicans seized on Greig’s comments.State GOP chairwoman Laura Cox said gradually hiking the 26-cents-a-gallon gas tax to 71 cents over a year “was an idea that was always running on empty” and one that drivers rejected when it was announced nearly six months ago.“Now with her own party leaving it dead on the side of the road, it’s time for Governor Whitmer to get real and walk back to the negotiating table,” she said.Oct. 1 is the deadline to pass a spending plan for the next fiscal year.___Follow Eggert on Twitter at https://twitter.com/DavidEggert00David Eggert, The Associated Press read more

Bangladesh and India to conduct tiger census with help from UN agency

The tiger census is the first of a series of joint activities between the South Asian neighbours under a cross-border initiative to protect the health of the Sundarbans, the world’s largest mangrove forest.The Sundarbans, which extend north from the Bay of Bengal, is home to more than 6 million people and a dwindling population of Bengal tigers. Its ecosystem is deteriorating because of population pressures and poorly enforced environmental regulations in Bangladesh and India.The UNDP issued a statement today welcoming the move by Bangladesh and India, describing it as an “historic milestone in cross-border collaboration to protect globally significant biodiversity.”This tiger census should also be an improvement on previous attempts because it uses measuring methods considered more accurate by those in the field. As part of the census, local communities will receive training on how to help relocate “stray” tigers into the wild and away from populated areas. read more

Southern Rail drivers reject £75000 pay deal and trigger overtime ban

first_imgTrain drivers have rejected an offer of £75,000-a-year in pay in a long-running dispute that has caused misery for commuters, Southern rail bosses have said.The offer had been made last week, as passengers faced disruption from the end of the month as a result of a ban on drivers doing overtime by the union Aslef. Aslef and the RMT are embroiled in long-running disputes with Southern over staffing and driver-only trains, which has caused chaos for 300,000 passengers with repeated strikes over the past 15 months.Southern Railway’s parent company Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR) said it had offered employees a “very generous”  four-year pay deal worth 23.8%.It would take a driver’s base salary from £49,001 to £60,683 for the existing 35-hour, four-day week. Most of Southern’s drivers also work a fifth day as overtime, which tops up their pay by 25 per cent, taking the potential total pay to over £75,000. A spokesman for GTR said: “The Aslef leadership has twice accepted the extension of driver-controlled operation and asked us this time to package it up with a pay deal.”We’ve made a very generous offer that in four years would take a driver’s base salary to £60,683 for the existing 35-hour, four-day week, so we find this threat of an overtime ban surprising and extremely disappointing.” Strikes have become familiar for Southern passengersCredit:Nick Edwards The group’s case is being supported by the disabled and older people’s charity Transport For All.Summer Dean, of ABC, said the court date will be the most important day in its campaign, and was the only chance of bringing the “never-ending rail crisis” to a close. Meanwhile, leaders of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) will meet this week to decide their next move in the long-running rows at Southern, Merseyrail and Northern about driver-only trains.It comes as a commuters’ group seeking a judicial review of the Government’s handling of Southern Railway has secured a date for a court hearing to press its case.The Association of British Commuters (ABC) will attend a so-called public permission hearing at the Royal Courts of Justice in London on June 29 – the same day as the overtime ban by Southern drivers starts.ABC said the court hearing will finally bring the principles of the case into the public arena and could lead to a full-blown judicial review. However the rail operator said talks aimed at resolving the dispute had ended without agreement, and Aslef had ordered the overtime ban to go ahead from Thursday next week.A spokesman told the Evening Standard: “We take that to mean rejection of our [pay] offer”.  Services were badly disrupted the last time Aslef launched an overtime ban.center_img Aslef said it had not made a formal decision on pay. One train driver said they were satisfied with the pay but there were still concerns over safety. Southern rail RMT general secretary Mick Cash said: “The spotlight is now well and truly back on the basket-case Southern Rail franchise and their unconditional support from this minority government regardless of the safety and service consequences.”RMT’s executive will be considering the next steps in the guards’ and drivers’ safety disputes this week.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Only matter of time until someone is killed Council to vote on

first_img Source: Twitter/CyclistieDUBLIN CITY COUNCIL’S transport committee will this week vote on whether or not to automatically tow any vehicle found illegally parked in cycle lanes around the capital.The motion is being brought by cycling-advocate, and Fine Gael councillor for the south city, Paddy Smyth and calls for the council’s Parking Enforcement Unit (PEU) to be notified of such infractions via either a dedicated phone number or Twitter.The motion will be submitted at tomorrow’s meeting of the committee, in the wake of a mass protest of cyclists planned for this afternoon outside the gates of Leinster House.Smyth sees the “zero tolerance” approach to the blocking of lanes as a case of “using a stick where the carrot has proven ineffective”.“All we’re doing is asking people to obey the law,” he told TheJournal.ie.

Sen Rubio asks officials to investigate Hollywood nursing home

first_imgHOLLYWOOD, FLA. (WSVN) – Senator Marco Rubio is calling for change after a nursing home tragedy.Rubio asked the Senate Committee on Finance to investigate failures at a Hollywood Hills nursing home that led to the deaths of 14 patients after Hurricane Irma in September.Power outages caused the facility’s air-conditioning to fail — leaving patients suffering in sweltering conditions.Rubio sent a letter which read in part, “As the chairman and ranking member of the committee with jurisdiction over Medicare and Medicaid, I implore you to investigate the failures that occurred at this nursing home and others throughout the country, particularly in Florida and Puerto Rico, to prevent similar tragedies from happening in the future.”Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

North Slope Moves to Create Port Authority

first_imgBarrow, AK during spring ice break-up. (Photo by Steven Kazlowsk)With Arctic activity escalating, the North Slope Arctic Borough is taking steps to protect its resources while developing its economy.The Borough passed an ordinance to create a North Slope Port Authority on July 1, 2014. The Port Authority would create, fund, and operate port facilities and related activities along the North Slope coast.“What’s driving [the project] is there’s a lot more activity in the Arctic now,” Paul Fuhs, a consultant on the project, explained. “So there’s concern that emergency response capability be in place but also that as development takes place, we want to make sure that the local people can economically benefit from the activity that’s going on.”That development is an increase in Arctic marine traffic and resource extraction.Fuhs said no port exists in the North Slope. He said docking facilities exist at Prudhoe Bay and Barrow, but most communities rely on crude means for unloading vessels.“In terms of the other communities, it’s pretty much, you pull up with a barge, and you land on the beach, you put a ramp down,” Fuhs said, describing the docking methods for most of the Borough.Fuhs said the Port Authority would create more efficient port facilities in coastal communities along the Slope, reducing living costs along the way.“Some might be bigger than others,” Fuhs said. “It depends upon the circumstances. It depends on the vicinity, the water depth, how protected they are, how exposed they are to ice. And the idea is to really optimize the facilities for each community.”According to the ordinance, the Port Authority would also protect subsistence resources, create local jobs, and provide emergency response.The Authority would operate as a public corporation with a seven-member board with representatives spread across tribal, local, and regional entities. Fuhs said this inclusion consolidates ownership while creating flexible financial capabilities.“It really helps provide unified approach for entities want to come to the North Slope and do business,” Fuhs said.The initiative is being lead by North Slope Mayor Charlotte Brower. Advisor to the Mayor, David Fauske, said decisions governing Arctic development are being made remotely in Juneau or Washington D.C. Brower pushed the ordinance to bring these decisions to the people whose backyards the development is affecting.Explaining Mayor Brower’s decision, Fauske said, “So many times we’re told what’s going to happen for the next phase of Arctic development, and this would just kind of give us a bigger seat at the table, a more permanent one.”The decision to create a North Slope Port Authority goes to public vote this October.last_img read more

State Considers BC Mines As Promoters Plan Visit

first_imgThe Walker-Mallott administration announced Wednesday that it’s set up a working group to address the transboundary mining boom near Southeast Alaska. The news comes as British Columbia’s mine-regulation agency plans meetings with Alaska fishermen and tribal groups.Download AudioLt. Gov. Byron Mallott head ups the working group, which includes commissioners of the state departments of Natural Resources, Environmental Conservation and Fish and Game.It’s looking into longstanding concerns about British Columbia mines slated to open or reopen on rivers that flow through Southeast Alaska.“We view the entire range of activity on that side, which can affect the waters and the habitat of those river corridors, as important to Alaska’s interests and to our national interests and we will engage and pursue that interest vigorously,” Mallott says.Lt. Gov. Byron Mallott sits at his desk, beneath the state seal Feb. 26. Mallott heads up a new administration transboundary mines working group. (Ed Schoenfeld/CoastAlaska News)He says the group is just getting started and is gathering information from regulators, mining critics and supporters.A new transboundary mines group, Inside Passage Waterkeeper, recently petitioned the administration to seek government-to-government talks with British Columbia’s premier.The group wants the governor to ask for a moratorium on new tailings storage dams, including one being tested at the Red Chris Mine in the Stikine River watershed.Mallott says he’s not yet ready to pursue any particular course of action.“My desire is that we not seek specific responses until we understand fully what we are engaged with. But that doesn’t mean that anything is off the table, either,” he says.B.C. Premier Christy Clark is an ardent advocate of mining. She’s added staff to the provincial mining agency to speed permitting, so new projects can open sooner.Bill Bennett, her energy and mines minister, came to Anchorage in November to explain his government’s approach and actions.He met with state officials and addressed Alaska’s mining association. But says he realizes he was not meeting with the right people.“We need to make a second trip. Whether I go along on that trip or not is still up in the air. But we certainly need to reach out and give the people of Southeast Alaska an opportunity to meet and talk to our officials,” he says.Bennett wants to engage fisheries and tribal groups, where provincial officials can explain their mine-review process. It’s unclear whether environmental groups will be included.“We’re not really going to come to Alaska and be lectured,” he says.Details of mine ministry’s visit, such as dates and locations, are not set.But fishermen and tribal members are among those most strongly protesting mineral development near cross-border rivers.“We would welcome Mining Minister Bill Bennett with open arms. That’s one thing that’s been lacking is consultation and transparency,” says Rob Sanderson Jr., who co-chairs the United Tribal Transboundary Mining Work Group and is a vice president of the Tlingit-Haida Central Council.Both groups cite August’s Mount Polley tailings-dam breach in eastern British Columbia. A report reviewing what went wrong there estimated a similar dam would fail every five years, releasing hazardous water, silt and rock.Sanderson says that raises questions about the future.“We’re doing this to protect our environment for our children and grandchildren and the yet unborn. We want them to enjoy the same things that we are enjoying right now – pristine rivers and clean water,” he says.State officials at a lower level are already talking to British Columbia’s mining ministry.Department of Natural Resources Large Mine Project Manager Kyle Moselle says he urged staff to travel to Southeast when they met in Vancouver in January.“The point that I made to them or stressed to them was that many of the stakeholders that I’ve talked with … feel frustrated or disenfranchised from British Columbia’s administrative process, their environmental review process,” he says.British Columbia has also recommended the issue be put before the Pacific Northwest Economic Region. That’s a cross-border development think-tank.Southeast Alaska Conservation Council Mining Coordinator Guy Archibald, who is also part of Inside Passage Waterkeeper, says that’s not the best approach.“They’re an economic development organization and they don’t really have any working groups for environmental protection,” he says.Meanwhile, the state’s new working group will meet again in a few weeks.Lt. Gov. Mallott, its chairman, says while he hopes it will have an impact, it faces limits.“Alaska has no triggers to pull that would allow immediate action,” he says.last_img read more

He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes.
