RCMP investigating officer who uttered slur during raid on Mikmaqled antifracking camp

first_imgAPTN National NewsAn RCMP officer involved in the Oct. 17 raid on a Mi’kmaq-led anti-fracking camp in New Brunswick is under an internal investigation for saying “Crown land belongs to the government, not to fucking natives.”An RCMP spokeswoman said the force was informed of the statement on Oct. 18 and immediately sent the officer home and he is now the subject of an internal investigation.“This type of behaviour is unacceptable and is taken very seriously by the RCMP,” said Const. Jullie Rogers-Marsh.Rogers-Marsh wouldn’t say whether the officer was suspended.“I am unable to confirm that information as it is part of the ongoing internal investigation,” said Rogers-Marsh.RCMP tactical units, some in camouflage and wielding automatic weapons, walked in on the anti-fracking camp on the morning of Oct. 17. The camp, which was secured by the Mi’kmaq Warrior Society, was blocking a compound holding exploration vehicles owned by Houston-based company SWN Resources Canada. The company is exploring the region for shale gas deposits.The RCMP raid freed the company’s vehicles, but also triggered hours-long clashes between residents from Elsipogtog First Nation, which sits 15 kilometres away, and RCMP officers. Several RCMP vehicles were set on fire and 40 people were arrested after clashes that saw police use pepper spray, tear gas and fire rubber bullets. The RCMP also seized three rifles and crude explosive devices.APTN National News reporter Ossie Michelin, who was on the scene during the day of the raid, initially reported the statement made by one of the officers who was a member of the tactical units.Since Michelin’s report, shadowy online hacking group Anonymous took up the cause and recently released video that captured the voice of a barely visible RCMP officer in the woods making the statement which immediately triggered a reaction from Elsipogtog residents.Rogers-Marsh said Anonymous had nothing to do with the RCMP’s decision to put the officer under an internal probe.“We were made aware of it way before that was posted on-line,” she said.Anonymous said in a statement to APTN National News it was “crafting a wicked little plan to get (New Brunswick Premier David Alward) to suddenly announce a referendum.” The group provided no other details.news@aptn.calast_img read more

Sidewalk Labs unveils heated sidewalks and building raincoats that will let patio

Canadian Press/Tijana Martin TORONTO — Sidewalk Labs offered a glimpse at a handful of high-tech prototypes it hopes to launch in a waterfront smart city it has proposed for Toronto on Friday.The Alphabet Inc.-backed entity showed off technologies it previously teased, including hexagonal sidewalks that light up to indicate a change in a street’s usage and heat up to reduce ice and snow, and “building raincoats” that can adjust to provide cover from cold weather or rain but open up in warm temperatures.Sidewalk Labs has long touted the innovations as a way it believes it can transform communities — including the swath of prime land known as Quayside that it hopes to develop with Waterfront Toronto. Opinion: It’s not too late: Canada, not Sidewalk Labs, should be driving urban innovation Sidewalk Labs and the question of tax increment financing: Here’s how the proposal would work Sidewalk Toronto faces growing opposition, calls to cancel project “It is totally different to see it in its real world context and understand its real impact,” said Jesse Shapins, the director of public realm at Sidewalk Labs, who said nailing down exactly what building either the raincoats or streets would cost is tough, but he believes they will be “comparatively less” than a glass “arcade” walkway.“Starting to do something like this helps us learn about some of the cost elements, but we imagine doing them on a larger scale and more of them, the costs go down.”Canadians won’t have to wait until the start of summer for farmers’ markets and patio dining with “Building raincoats.” The unveilings come as Sidewalk Labs is facing criticism over hopes to lay claim to a cut of the city’s developer fees and property taxes in exchange for funding a light rail transit line and underground infrastructure in and around the Quayside neighbourhood.In previous months Sidewalk Labs was dealing with concerns around Quayside’s potential data, privacy and intellectual property policies.While Sidewalk Labs has often been accused of being secretive, the company has tried to foster a sense of transparency with Quayside meetings to collect feedback and open houses at a waterfront office it opened to construct prototypes.The company will host a Saturday open house for the public to see the innovations it has been working on, which Shapins hoped would generate feedback.Shapins said those who attend will see the high-tech sidewalk — a series of concrete pavers that can be made porous to make a street more resilient when faced with water. He said the pavers can be removed individually when damaged, so extensive road closures and crews are not needed.Lighting, he said, could be incorporated into the pavers to “reprogram” streets for high traffic, construction, bikes and special events, proving much more efficient than paint.Shapins was also excited to show off the “building raincoats,” which are built with a plastic-like film and can be used to transition a space from indoors to outdoors depending on the weather.“The raincoat provides an additional way to expand so a farmers market can happen inside but also outside as well,” he said.“There’s even the opportunity to use them as expanded patio spaces so the patio season doesn’t have to start at the beginning of summer. It could start earlier when you have something like this.”Shapins said he expects the raincoats will come in handy in Quayside, where it can get cold and windy quickly and where research he’s seen has estimated that weather is only “comfortable” 30 per cent of the year.Sidewalk Labs, he revealed, will next look at testing the technology behind the tall timber buildings and the “stoa” — a term Sidewalk is using to mean flexible, ground floor spaces — proposed for Quayside. read more

UN inspectors fan out across Iraq to probe for evidence of arms

Biological experts from the UN Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission (UNMOVIC) inspected the Ibn Seena Centre, a facility for the production of veterinary drugs, according to a UN spokesman in Baghdad. Another team of missile inspectors went to an Iraqi army base far south of Baghdad, where it started tagging Iraq’s Al Fatah ground-to-ground solid propellant rockets. The remaining Al Fatah rockets, now in the possession of the Iraqi army, will be tagged in the course of this week.A chemical team returned to Falluja III, which is part of the Al Tariq Company, primarily a pesticide formulation plant and which was previously inspected twice last month, spokesman Hiro Ueki said. Meanwhile, a multidisciplinary team inspected the maintenance section of the Al Fao Company, which is responsible for the repair of engines, pumps and compressors used by the water-treatment and other industries.A team based in Mosul inspected the Free Trading Zone Commission (FTZC), which is affiliated with the Ministry of Finance and is an independent investment commission located in the Filfayl area.The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) conducted an inspection of several locations at the Tuwaitha site, including the Nuclear Physics Academic Research Centre, the Physics Research Materials and Electronics Studies Centre, and the Laser and Plasma Research Centre. Inspections were conducted in order to ascertain the level of activity at these locations.On Sunday, UNMOVIC teams inspected a chemical and petroleum research centre, as well as a factory that contributes to some Iraqi missile programmes with the development of fuses, Mr. Ueki said. Another team of inspectors returned to the Al Mamoun Plant to finish tagging equipment related to solid propellant production, while other inspections were carried out at the Al Rasheed Central Military Medical Laboratory and the Al Rasheed Military Hospital located in a complex owned by the Ministry of Defence.Teams in Basra and Mosul inspected educational institutions that belong to Basra University and the Ibn Sina Teaching Hospital, respectively, while another team of inspectors visited the Al Aziziyah Firing Range, where certain proscribed munitions were previously stored.The IAEA, meanwhile, inspected the Saddam Graphite Plant, which has a project to manufacture graphite electrodes for use in induction arc furnaces for the country’s iron and steel industry.On Saturday, UNMOVIC teams inspected chemical and biological facilities, as well as the Shayk Mahzar Airfield located in the southern no-fly zone. IAEA inspectors went to the Al Mamoud plant, which manufactures composite propellant fuel for missiles, and the Al Aboor SE Plant, which refurbishes machine tools and produces spare parts for the civilian and military sector. read more

“I know that governments in the region, including China in particular, are trying to make efforts to work with the parties to find a peaceful way out and I would urge the parties to really engage and find a peaceful way out of this conflict,” Mr. Annan told reporters on arrival at UN Headquarters in New York. Asked whether he had a particular recipe or prescription, he replied: “Well, I have some ideas but the parties would want to do it themselves. In fact I’ve been in touch with both parties and the US has made it clear that they would want to discuss this in a certain forum and the North Koreans have their ideas, and here the Chinese Government and others are trying to help to find a way that would be acceptable to both and to allow us to move forward on this issue.”The United States wants to discuss the conflict in a multilateral forum with the DPRK’s neighbours, including China, Japan and the Republic of Korea, while Pyongyang is seeking bilateral talks with Washington.Video of the Secretary-General speaking to reporters read more

Damtshaa and Koniambo install Wenco fleet management system

first_imgWenco International Mining Systems has announced the installation of the Wenco Fleet Management System at the Damtshaa diamond mine in northeast Botswana and the Koniambo nickel project in New Caledonia. The Damtshaa mine is a joint venture between De Beers and the Government of Botswana. Damtshaa, which means “water for tortoises” in Setswana, opened in 2003 and is forecast to produce 5 Mct of diamonds from 39 Mt of ore in its projected 31 year lifespan. The mine employs approximately 250 people and is ISO14001 (Environmental Management Standards) certified. Installation is expected to be completed within the first half of 2013 and will see nine vehicles equipped with the Wenco system.Wenco Regional Director Jayson Bebek said: “The Wenco system is currently utilised at the larger Orapa and Lethakane operations and the Debswana management team saw the value of bringing the system to the smaller Damtshaa mine. This will allow consistent operational methodology for all of their mines in the region and they can take advantage of the same real-time tools and reporting.”The also recently announced a contract with Koniambo Nickel SAS to supply the Wenco Fleet Management System at the Koniambo nickel mining project in New Caledonia. Koniambo Nickel SAS, a joint venture of Xstrata Nickel and the Société Minière du Sud Pacifique (SMSP), is managing the project development. The mine has an expected annual nickel production of 60,000 t, and a projected site length of 50 years. Wenco’s Fleet Management System will be installed on 9 shovels and 44 trucks at the mine site over the next two years. Koniambo will also be utilising Wenco’s innovative BenchManager™ high precision GNSS systems on their shovels to further optimize their mining operations.last_img read more

Astrosismologie le chant des étoiles permet de mieux les connaître

first_imgAstrosismologie : le “chant” des étoiles permet de mieux les connaîtreDes scientifiques sont parvenus à capter le “chant” d’une étoile fort lointaine. Grâce à ces informations, ils ont été capables de déterminer ses caractéristiques.Les astrophysiciens de l’université de Birmingham et les scientifiques travaillant avec la Nasa ont pu mesurer les variations de luminosité de l’étoile KIC 11026764, également surnommée Gemma.Grâce à une technique appelée astrosismologie, ils ont été capables de détecter le vacillement de la lumière causé par l’astre et de reconstituer le son qu’il produisait. De la même façon qu’un violoncelle produit un son plus grave qu’un violon, la taille d’une étoile peut être déterminée par la fréquence des vibrations qu’elle émet.À lire aussiUn time-lapse époustouflant dévoile le ciel nocturne du désert des MojavesIls peuvent également connaître la structure de l’étoile en fonction de la manière dont les ondes sonores la traversent. Des ondes sonores qui passent à travers de l’hélium sont beaucoup plus rapides que celles qui traversent un noyau d’hydrogène par exemple. La vibration qui est émise à la surface de l’étoile n’est donc pas la même et elle modifie la luminosité émise en conséquence.C’est grâce à ce type de mesures que les scientifiques ont pu calculer que Gemma était vieille de plus de 5,94 milliards d’années, soit environ un milliard d’années de plus que notre soleil. Ayant jusque-là atteint la taille de deux fois le soleil, elle continuera de grossir avant de devenir une géante rouge, stade ultime des gigantesques étoiles en fin de vie. Située à 5.000 milliards de kilomètres de la Terre, son noyau est constitué essentiellement d’hélium entouré d’une fine couche d’hydrogène en fusion.Toutes ces informations ont été collectées grâce à la vibration musicale de l’étoile, une vibration qui s’apparente, une fois reconstituée, au souffle d’une brise dans un micro.Le 13 novembre 2010 à 12:24 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

This will encourage hospitals with larger cardiac and neurosurgery services to implement at least one hybrid OR, suggests new analysis from Frost & Sullivan.Hybrid ORs combine conventional surgical equipment with endovascular imaging equipment to facilitate a multitude of new surgical events for many medical disciplines. Currently, Europe has very few hybrid ORs in comparison to mature markets such as North America. This is set to change as hybrid ORs facilitate sophisticated surgeries while reducing hospitalization periods. “Operating Rooms of the Future: A European Perspective” finds that the crisscrossing of disciplines, coupled with booming demand for minimally invasive surgeries, will boost adoption of the hybrid OR.The key restraint to the uptake of hybrid ORs is cost. The expense involved in setting up a hybrid suite can vary between $3 million to $9 million, including the heavy investment in large devices like angiography imaging systems, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT) scanners. In Europe, installation costs alone start at $4 million for an empty site.”Hybrid OR is perceived as an expensive alternative to traditional operating rooms, mainly due to the high initial investment,” said Somsainathan C. Kamalasekar, research analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “Currently, European countries are struggling to overcome the economic crisis, and such investments are not seen as attractive or critical areas that demand immediate budgets. Due to lack of funds, hybrid OR is witnessing a lower adoption rate than its actual potential.”However, most operating theaters are running at an average of 68 percent of their capacity, even though it is the largest revenue and cost-generating center for a hospital, accounting for approximately 42 percent of the average healthcare organization’s revenue and a proportionate share of its costs. A hybrid OR will allow both human and technical resources to be employed optimally. Thus, integration of a hybrid OR into the central surgical department generates the most advantages, since a hybrid OR allows interdisciplinary applications and is available as an operating room resource.”Practically, once the hybrid is set up, the hospital can save costs through its use and additionally optimize the selection and quality of treatment routines. This also increases patient and staff satisfaction,” said Somsainathan. “Educating and increasing the awareness about the benefits of hybrid OR, as well as targeting the private hospitals that have sufficient funds, will help in the short run.”For more information: www.frost.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Feature | May 07, 2015 Real Time Monitoring of Staff Dose in the Cath Lab Physicians and staff working in cath labs are constantly exposed to direct X-ray beams and scatter radiation…. read more Technology | March 02, 2015 CompView Medical Introduces First Mobile Visualization Boom System CompView Medical (CVM) introduced an all-in-one equipment manager, visualization and ergonomic boom system — the NuCart… read morelast_img read more

Tenants responsibility to pay communal charges

first_imgTHE management committee of a building complex is responsible for imposing communal charges on the owners of the units. The landlord, being the owner of a unit, is obliged to pay the communal charges and this obligation is transferable to his tenant. The landlord may impose an obligation upon his tenant to pay the communal charges to him, by including it as a term in the tenancy agreement. In such a case, the tenancy agreement does not bind the management committee, to which the landlord remains accountable and if the tenant fails to pay either the rent or the communal charges or violates any other contractual obligation, the landlord is entitled to claim the amounts due through a legal action.Where the rented premises were completed prior to 31.12.1999 and are situated in an area controlled by the Rent Control Law, the tenancy becomes statutory upon its expiration or its termination and the Rent Control Court has jurisdiction on any matter related to the tenancy. The issue concerning the payment of rents in arrears, communal and sewage charges owed by a statutory tenant is an ‘incidental’ matter and consequently falls under the jurisdiction of the said court.The law relating to statutory tenancies states that the tenant who remains in possession of any residence or shop and complies with the terms and conditions of the last tenancy agreement, is entitled to the benefits under it, provided the terms of the said tenancy agreement are consistent with the provisions of the law. Moreover, according to the law, if any rent or communal charges are in arrears, they are considered an incidental or supplementary matter which falls under the jurisdiction of the court.The definition of the term ‘rent’ in the law includes any amount payable as rent for the premises and the furniture if the property is furnished, but it does not include the communal charges. As regards a statutory tenancy, the law provides that, unless there is an agreement to the contrary, the tenant is obliged to pay the communal charges corresponding to the premises, including minor expenses for the maintenance of the communal areas and facilities. However, the tenant has no obligation to pay serious expenses for the maintenance, alteration or replacement of the communal areas and facilities.The term ‘communal charges’ in the law means the use of the communal areas of the premises by the tenant, the use of the communal facilities, water and electricity supply to them for the tenant’s use and the provision of services for the cleaning and maintenance of the communal areas, as well as other services necessary. The issue concerning the payment of communal charges by a statutory tenant was dealt with by the court, whereby it was decided that the claim was one of special damages and the landlord had to prove them strictly. A term was included in the tenancy agreement imposing an obligation upon the tenant to arrange the supply of water and electricity and the payment of the relevant charges. Moreover, the tenant had to register the utility bills in his name, including the payment of the refuse, communal and drain-cleaning charges.The court interpreted that the tenant had accepted to pay the landlord the communal charges for the rented premises.
