Starting Friday Canadians to get emergency alerts on their cellphones

first_imgStarting Friday, Canadians won’t have to be near a television or radio to receive emergency alerts.Life-threatening emergencies will now be broadcast on compatible mobile phones.The National Public Alerting System — commonly called Alert Ready — will include wireless networks, in addition to traditional broadcast channels.In the case of a life-threatening emergency, officials will send a localized alert that will compel compatible phones to emit an alarm and display a bilingual text warning.Situations that could prompt an alert include forest fires, terrorist threats or an Amber Alert for a missing child.Canada’s broadcast regulator, the CRTC, has said that wireless carriers will conduct one test of the system during the week of May 6.The shrill, siren-like alarm tone is the same one that currently accompanies emergency broadcasts on radio and television.The Alert Ready website says individuals will not be billed for the messages.last_img read more

Chief electoral officer decides to stick with voting day amid religious concerns

first_imgOTTAWA — Canada’s chief electoral officer says voting day this fall should not be moved.Election day can be no later than Oct. 21 under federal law, which this year falls on the Jewish holiday known as Shemini Atzeret, meaning Orthodox Jews are not permitted to work, vote or campaign.Elections Canada had been lobbied to change the date, but decided against it this close to an election, prompting a Federal Court challenge to the decision.Last week, the court ordered chief electoral officer Stephane Perrault to take a second look at the decision and balance the infringement on the charter rights of affected voters against the objectives of the election law.Perrault’s detailed decision says it is not in the public interest to move voting day.Cabinet now has until Thursday to make a decision about Perrault’s recommendation.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Softwood lumber Canada takes its complaint to the World Trade Organization

first_imgWASHINGTON – Canada is taking its softwood lumber case to the World Trade Organization, setting in motion a potentially years-long fight against the United States before the international commercial body.The Canadian government announced Tuesday that it requested WTO consultations over American lumber duties, an initial step in eventually establishing a panel for litigating the dispute.A similar battle dragged on for four years at the WTO in the last instalment of the Canada-U.S. softwood dispute, before a temporary agreement in 2006 put the on-again, off-again issue to rest for a decade.It re-erupted this year when the U.S. imposed a series of penalties, arguing that Canada unfairly subsidizes its lumber companies through cheap access to public land. In a letter to a U.S. representative at the WTO on Tuesday, the Canadian government criticized those duties, arguing they were based on bad data and flawed methodology.“The U.S. … decision to impose punitive anti-dumping and countervailing duties on Canadian softwood lumber producers is unfair, unwarranted and deeply troubling,” the Canadian government said in a statement.“We will forcefully defend Canada’s softwood lumber industry.”Canada is also fighting the case through NAFTA’s dispute-resolution system. The lumber fight has added a complex new wrinkle to the ongoing NAFTA negotiations, as the U.S. is simultaneously asking to kill the NAFTA panel system that handles softwood cases.Canadian softwood lumber exports to the U.S. are down about six per cent this year compared with last year, according to federal data analyzed by CIBC.The bank analysts say the biggest loser by far has been B.C. — its exports to the U.S. have dropped 20 per cent, partly due to forest fires. New Brunswick exports have dipped slightly. In Ontario and Quebec, exports have actually increased.But the biggest gains this year have gone to Germany, followed by Austria, Sweden, Romania and Russia. With duties on Canadian lumber and a hot U.S. construction market, CIBC calculates German softwood exports to the U.S. have surged more than 600 per cent this year. Germany alone has filled about half the void left by declining Canadian exports to the U.S.That issue of foreign lumber was one of the major outstanding impediments to a softwood deal.Canada agreed to a limit on exports under the deal, but insisted on a right to surpass that limit in the event of a hot American market, like the current one — so that the rising demand might be filled by Canadians, not Europeans and South Americans.U.S. industry shot down the proposal. Its support is critical. Any deal between the national governments requires industry approval, because the agreement would require that U.S. companies sign away their right to sue for duties.Canadian officials have expressed fear the U.S. industry might seek to repeat tactics of the past: Allow the fight to drag on for years, so duties on Canadian imports push up the domestic price of lumber.last_img read more

Simeone banned from Europa League final

first_imgAtletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone has been banned by UEFA from contact with his team on the field at the Europa League final after misconducting at the first leg with Arsenal last week.Simeone was charged with insulting officials and improper conduct, due to which he was sent off. However, even then he continued to communicate with his coaching staff.Gerard Pique, Neymar, BarcelonaLa Liga Betting: Match-day 4 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Despite it being very early into La Liga season, both Barcelona and Real Madrid have had unprecedented starts to their campaigns.

World Cup squad Rayudu Rishabh Pant out Karthik in Why Shocking reason

first_imgMS Dhoni and Dinesh Karthik after guiding India to victory in Adelaide.Daniel Kalisz/Getty ImagesChief selector of Board of Control for Cricket in India, MSK Prasad, and its acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary announced India’s 15-member World Cup squad on Monday, April 15 and the unlucky names to miss out are Ambati Rayudu along with young Rishabh Pant. The direct beneficiaries in place of the left out duo are Vijay Shankar and Dinesh Karthik. Meanwhile, KL Rahul has been picked as the backup opener and Ravindra Jadeja will also be taking the flight to England given his three-dimensional ability — spinner, lower-middle order batsman and a terrific fielder. Squad: Virat Kohli (C), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, MS Dhoni, Vijay Shankar, Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, KL Rahul, Ravindra Jadeja, Dinesh KarthikAfter announcing the squad, MSK Prasad addressed the press, answering all questions regarding the spots that were up for grabs. He justified the inclusions as well as the unfortunate exclusions. “Well, it’s definitely a case where we have debated at length and all of us, in unison, felt that either Rishabh Pant or DK will only come into the playing XI if Mahi (MS Dhoni) is injured,” said MSK Prasad on the criteria for selecting the reserve wicketkeeper.  Rishabh Pant walks off after being dismissed in the first T20I.Hagen Hopkins/Getty ImagesThe chief selector went on to say that Karthik’s superior wicketkeeping ability gave him the edge of the 21-year-old Pant. “So at that juncture, it is a crucial match like the semifinal or an important game (of the World Cup), wicketkeeping also matters. So that’s the only reason why we went ahead with Dinesh Karthik, otherwise, Rishabh Pant was almost there,” MSK Prasad added. MSK Prasad addressed the number 4 debate and spoke about why Ambati Rayudu missed out. “We did give a few more chances to Rayudu but what Vijay Shankar offers is three-dimensional. Apart from his batting, he can bowl. If the conditions are suitable and overcast, he might bowl a bit; he’s a fantastic fielder. That’s the thing that went in favour of Vijay Shankar,” MSK Prasad outlined.  The entire nation will be looking up to Kohli during the World Cup.GIANLUIGI GUERCIA/AFP/Getty ImagesAddressing Vijay Shankar as a batsman who can bowl, MSK Prasad said, “We are looking at him at number 4 and we are also looking at Dinesh Karthik and Kedar Jadhav — so we have plenty of options at number 4 at the moment.” The chief selector reiterated that their preferred number 4, to begin with, will be Vijay Shankar and changes can be made if he does not perform. He also spoke about the inclusion of Ravindra Jadeja and said that the wickets will get dry as the English summer progresses wherein an extra spinner will be of help. “There might be a situation where you might require an additional all-rounder in the playing XI. In the second part of the tournament, when the wickets might be a bit drier, so that’s where we felt Jadeja might come in handy and that’s the reason why he has been picked.”last_img read more

Bryan Cranston says Power Rangers movie is dark like Batman not silly

first_imgThe kids from the 90s are now grown ups with money, so it’s high time Hollywood took advantage of that by rebooting Might Morphin’ Power Rangers as a movie. Bryan Cranston of Breaking Bad fame will be playing the Power Rangers’ alien mentor Zordon in the film, but he says this won’t just be an updated version of the original TV show. He likens it much more to the dark reimagining of the Christopher Nolan Batman movies.Cranston, who actually voiced several monsters on the original 90s TV series, explained that he was initially skeptical of taking part in the Power Rangers movie reboot. He remembered the show and didn’t think something with that tone would be a suitable role for him. He talked to the producer and director and gave the script a read anyway. He came away with the impression that this won’t be as similar to the TV series as many expected. As if the boob armor wasn’t enough of a giveaway.The way Cranston tells it, comparing the 90s Power Rangers to what moviegoers are about to see would be like comparing the campy original Batman series to The Dark Knight. Cranston is careful to point out it won’t necessarily be as serious as The Dark Knight, though. This is still a movie with teenagers in the leading roles, but it might have a chance of appealing to adults who are in it for more than the nostalgia. Will they still scream, “It’s morphin’ time,” when it’s time to morph? We can only hope.Power Rangers is currently filming with an expected release date of March 24th 2017. In addition to Cranston, the movie will star Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa. I guess they’re saving Lord Zedd for the sequel.last_img read more

At Grammys Dave Chappelle leads a comic interlude

first_imgAt Grammys, Dave Chappelle leads a comic interlude by Jake Coyle, The Associated Press Posted Jan 28, 2018 8:54 pm PDT Last Updated Jan 28, 2018 at 9:40 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – The 60th Grammy Awards primetime broadcast featured no awards handed out for rock or R&B, but comedy — and Dave Chappelle — got the spotlight on music’s biggest night.Chappelle won best comedy album for his first comedy album in more than 12 years: the double album to his first two Netflix specials, “The Age of Spin” and “Deep in the Heart of Texas.” It was one of just nine awards presented in the primetime broadcast (75 awards were handed out in the streaming-only pre-show). Trevor Noah said it was the first time best comedy album made the broadcast because Adele hasn’t recorded one yet.“Boy, I am honoured to win an award, finally,” said Chappelle of his first Grammy. His “Chappelle’s Show” was nominated for three Emmys in 2004 but won none.Chappelle won over Jim Gaffigan, Sarah Silverman, Jerry Seinfeld and Kevin Hart. It was something of a foregone conclusion for Chappelle, whose return to stand-up has sparked sold-out shows nationwide and led to what Netflix said was its most-watched comedy specials. Earlier in the show, Gaffigan joked that Chappelle, with the award in the bag, had enlisted him to write Chappelle’s acceptance speech.Chappelle kept his remarks brief, concluding, “See you on Monday.” But the comedian was a central part of the broadcast. He joined Kendrick Lamar, Bono and the Edge for the broadcast’s opening number. And he also presented the award for best rap album to Lamar, tossing in a shout-out to A Tribe Called Quest and the late Phife Dawg.“Just remember guys, we’re all winners,” said Chappelle as he opened the envelope.Lamar’s performance of his song “XXX” was heavy with provocative imagery, including an American flag waving behind him, dancers dressed in military fatigues and men in red hoodies whom Lamar mimed shooting one by one. Twice the music paused for Chappelle, on the side of the stage, to make wry observations.“I just wanted to remind the audience that the only thing more frightening than watching a black man be honest in America is being an honest black man in America,” he said. “Sorry for the interruption. Please continue.”___This story corrects the spelling of the late rapper Phife Dawg’s stage name.___For full coverage of awards season, visit: https://apnews.com/tag/AwardsSeasoncenter_img Dave Chappelle accepts the award for best comedy album for “The Age of Spin” and “Deep In The Heart Of Texas” at the 60th annual Grammy Awards at Madison Square Garden on Sunday, Jan. 28, 2018, in New York.

and Community I was more than heartened by yesterday’s announcement that the Vatican’s investigation and oversight of the US Catholic nun’s group the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) was coming to a close two years earlier than expected Thankfully the final report presented in Rome by officials of LCWR and the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith powerfully affirmed the ministry of Catholic sisters in this nation and ended an unneeded investigation that had fostered painful divisions within our church The report affirmed what we already knew and what Pope Francis has eloquently and repeatedly pointed out namely that authentic dialogue rather than confrontation is the source of peace-building and reconciliation Within the report we also heard more about how US sisters are valued not only because of how we carry out our ministries but also because there is a deep hunger in this nation for the spiritual nourishment Catholic sisters provide That was made clear to me personally during the past few years when our "Nuns on the Bus" campaigns traveled thousands of miles coast to coast to speak out for federal budget decisions that help people in need immigration reform Medicaid expansion and more During our journeys we were met by thousands of people eager to show their support and to hear what we sisters have to say about the intersection of faith and social justice My hope for the future is that we sisters will continue to be faithful to the love and gratitude we have received from across this nation When two investigations of US sisters were announced (this one and the "Apostolic Visitation" which was concluded in a similarly hopeful fashion a few months ago) we received a deluge of support from every corner of the country We were overwhelmed at times by what we heard and experienced but also needless to say deeply grateful We now know that people do understand the value of what we do when we stand in solidarity on a daily basis with people at the margins who must contend with many forms of injustice economic racial and so many more We stand together and work to overcome injustice because that is the Gospels call That is what our faith demands I hope that the value of dialogue will be recognized throughout our church and world That means dialogue from the beginning not just dialogue that comes about after a period of confrontation or misunderstanding We would welcome with gratitude an opportunity to explain who we are and how our actions are a faithful response to what the Gospel calls us to do That said I am personally profoundly grateful for the closing of this recent painful chapter in our churchs history I am also thankful for the opportunity to live out my faith as a woman religious knowing that our

events in news society and culture We welcome outside contributions Opinions expressed do not necessarily reflect the views of TIME editorsThroughout the past year countries around the world have announced individual commitments to cutting carbon dioxide emissions in hopes these cuts will keep global temperatures from rising more than 36F (2C) by 2100 With research showing the pledged emission cuts aren’t anywhere near enough to avoid dangerous climate change experts say cities and other sub-national governments will be responsible for making up the difference The good news is that emissions from cities represent more than 70% of energy-related carbon dioxide emissions and local leaders often have more autonomy to enact regulationsautonomy they are willing to exercise Earlier this month cities across the US and China announced commitments to curtail their own emissions by a total of 12 gigatons of carbon dioxide annually (For perspective the entire US emits between 5 and 6 gigatons each year) And last week states provinces and other regions from Quebec to South Australia announced voluntary commitments to cut carbon emissions leading to a 79-gigaton reduction by 2030 “Cities have a capability to execute” said Jules Kortenhorst the CEO of the Rocky Mountain Institute an energy think tank “Mayors are both powerful and grounded in reality” Indeed many climate and energy experts have turned to cities precisely because mayors can often take action in ways that national governments cannot In the US President Barack Obama has seen efforts to institute a cap-and-trade system thwarted and regulations on power plants challenged in court But at the state level California enacted a cap-and-trade system in 2006 cut greenhouse gas emissions and still managed to grow the economy “Even without national legislation countries can make great progress if leadership comes from other places” former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said in an address during the city’s Climate Week On Monday Bloomberg announced the creation of an umbrella organization to combine the efforts of the Compact of Mayors and the Compact of States and Regions two previously separate organizations aimed at cutting emissions at the sub-national level Earlier this week Bloomberg said the Compact of Mayors had obtained commitments from more than 175 cities that are collectively home to more than 250 million people While city programs can only address emissions in a narrow geographical area policy experts say those efforts can lay the groundwork for future national efforts China for instance experimented with cap-and-trade programs in seven cities before announcing the creation of national system last week Other cap-and-trade systems in places like California and the European Union may be used as models for future international systems Later this fall while negotiators from national governments around the world work to hammer out a climate deal in Paris policymakers for state and regional governments will also be meeting to construct their own agreements on how to reduce carbon emissions “Even if the average commitment of governments are
