first_imgOTTAWA — Canada’s health program for refugees and asylum seekers is getting a $283 million boost over the next two years.Immigration officials say the funding increase — contained in last week’s federal budget —  is needed because more people are making refugee claims.The number of asylum claims in Canada more than doubled over the last two years with 55,000 people making refugee claims in 2018.The refugee health program provides health care coverage for claimants while their applications are being reviewed but some reports suggest there is confusion among health care providers about how the program works.Early findings of a study being conducted by law professors at the University of Ottawa have found some refugees are being turned away by health care providers who are under the mistaken assumption they do not qualify for health coverage.Lead researcher Y.Y. Brandon Chen says health practitioners aren’t fully aware that previous cuts to the program were reversed and are also often frustrated by the red tape involved in getting reimbursed for refugee health costs.

first_imgAPTN National NewsVANCOUVER–The RCMP is expected to announce a major development in the ongoing investigation into the death and disappearance of women along the infamous Highway of Tears.Investigators with Project E-PANA plan to hold a press conference on Tuesday at 11:15 a.m. local time.The RCMP will also be holding news conferences in Kamloops and Prince George, B.C., on Wednesday.At least 18 women, the majority of them First Nation, have gone missing or been found murdered along the Highway of Tears, or Hwy 16, which is a desolate stretch of road running between Prince George and Prince Rupert,B.C. The cases, which date back to 1969, have, for the most part, remained unsolved.The RCMP said in a release that a call for help will be issued to B.C. residents, Canadians and U.S. residents.CBC News reported late Monday that one of the killings has been linked to a U.S. man who died in prison in 2006.

In its annual report to the General Assembly, the Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS) states that more than half of the 541 recommendations it made during 2003-04 have either been implemented or are already in progress.The recommendations called for $16.4 million of savings and recoveries, but OIOS says an extra $10.2 million was actually saved when some recommendations from previous years were finally implemented. Since it began work in 1994, OIOS has identified an average of $31 million in savings every year.Under-Secretary-General for Internal Oversight Services Dileep Nair, who completes his five-year term in April next year, says in the report that OIOS can and should have more independence from the UN, especially in managing its finances and its staff.”Operationally, this will remove any potential for a conflict of interest, given that OIOS has to go through departments that it has oversight of,” he states.The report highlights the 153 audits conducted by OIOS, including reviews of peacekeeping operations, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), and procurement and programme management.It also states that it is auditing field security procedures at 14 peacekeeping missions and six political and peace-building missions.During the year, OIOS identified and reviewed several examples of fraud, mismanagement or poor financial or administrative planning across the UN system.In one case, a security officer with the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) defrauded the UN of $130,000 by submitting fraudulent claims for education grants. The ICTR is now implementing the Office’s recommendations in the matter.In another example, the honorary representative of a field office with UNHCR was found to have abused his position for many years to organize the buying and re-selling, at profit, of international driver licences. That representative’s contract has not been renewed. read more

Yesterday’s New York marathon victor, Paul Tergat of Kenya, is not only the world’s fastest man over 26 miles, but an Ambassador Against Hunger for the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), who credits his successful athletic career to the food he received from the agency as a child. “Few people are better qualified to explain how food aid can transform the life of a child,” WFP Executive Director James Morris said in congratulating him on yesterday’s victory. “He exemplifies how just a small amount of help – such as one school meal a day – can make such an incredible difference. We are very grateful to Paul for his tremendous work and commitment as a WFP Ambassador Against Hunger,” he added.Mr. Tergat, who ran himself into the record books in Berlin in 2003 by becoming the first man to run the Marathon in less than two hours four minutes, slicing a remarkable 43 seconds off the previous best for the 26-mile race, struggled to make the three-mile trek to school as an eight-year-old child growing up in the drought- and poverty-ridden Baringo district of Kenya’s Rift Valley.But his life changed in 1977, when WFP started distributing free school lunches at his Riwo Primary School. “Without food, it was very difficult to walk to school, let alone concentrate on our studies. WFP’s lunches made it easier for us to make the most of our education,” Mr. Tergat said on being appointed a WFP Ambassador in January 2004. “A full meal was also the perfect incentive to keep us in the classroom.” WFP school meals cost just $0.19 a day or $34 a year. Research shows that school feeding dramatically increases school attendance and boosts performance in the classroom.Mr. Morris recently announced that the number of hungry people the agency is trying to feed this year in sub-Saharan Africa had climbed to 43 million – an all-time high and double the number from a decade ago. read more

Lakhdar Brahimi briefed journalists at the Palais des Nations after a third day of talks with him acting as a buffer between representatives of the Syrian Government and opposition groups.“In the morning we discussed a paper presented by the Government, general principles, most of those principles are already in the Geneva Declaration,” he said. “And tomorrow we are going to talk about the Geneva Declaration itself and see if we can start debate.”The discussions focused this weekend on getting an aid convoy into Homs, and on allowing civilians to leave the besieged city, cut off from supplies. The idea is that if agreement can be reached on humanitarian issues, it could bring the parties together to work through the political challenges.The Syrian Government has agreed to allow women and children to exit “immediately”, but has asked for a list of the men’s names before letting the rest of the civilians pass.“I think the Government is willing to make it happen, but it’s not easy because there are snipers and there are all sorts of problems,” Mr. Brahimi said.On the food convoy, a topic that was to be discussed today in Syria by the Homs Governor, his advisors and the Government in Damascus, “there is no decision yet to let them in.”“So I am still begging, asking, that we, something be done about these areas, whether these areas are under siege by the Government or by the armed groups,” Mr. Brahimi stressed.Of the more than 9.3 million people within the country needing humanitarian aid, over 2.5 million live in areas where access is seriously constrained or non-existent, such as Homs.In addition, well over 100,000 people have been killed and nearly 9 million others driven from their homes since the conflict erupted in March 2011 between the Government and various groups seeking the ouster of President Bashar al-Assad.“My expectation from this conference is that the unjust war will stop. But I know this is not going to happen today or tomorrow or next week,” Mr. Brahimi told journalists, adding that despite a lack of progress, there is “will to continue these discussions.”The goal of the conference is to achieve a political solution to the three-year-long conflict through a comprehensive agreement between the two sides for the full implementation of the Geneva communiqué, adopted after the first international meeting on the issue on 30 June 2012, and since endorsed by the UN Security Council.The communiqué lays out key steps in a process to end the violence. Among others, it calls for the establishment of a transitional governing body, with full executive powers and made up by members of the present Government and the opposition and other groups, as part of agreed principles and guidelines for a Syrian-led political transition.Mr. Brahimi, who has briefed journalists daily since the latest round of the talks started, also called on the two sides to be “a bit careful” with statement made to the media.“I have told them this afternoon that there was need to be responsible and respect, if possible, the confidentiality of the discussions,” the joint envoy said. “If you don’t respect the confidentiality at least don’t overstate the case.” read more

Pensioners have been left outraged after piles of old vehicles at a nearby car scrapyard reached 50ft high behind their homes.Residents in Poole, Dorset, described the five-storey stacks of written off cars as a “hideous monstrosity” which now dwarfs their bungalows.Homeowners also warned the giant structure is a fire hazard amid fears over a repeat of a blaze that swept through the compound in 2016, when over 170 vehicles were destroyed.Charles Tent, the scrapyard owners, said the stacking system enabled vehicles to be piled up in a “more modern and cleaner way”.However, retired engineer Charles Caffey, 73, claimed the “eyesore”, which backs directly onto his home, has blocked out natural light and is a safety risk.He said: “When I’m sat in the back garden it feels like I’m in the middle of a scrap yard. “The cars are so close to us I and the other residents fear what could happen in a fire.Poole Borough Council has written to Charles Tent and said it was “investigating” amid claims the structure may need planning permission.However, the owners insist the pile of cars is legal due to a “loophole” in planning laws.Planning Consultant Ken Parke, who have applied for a lawful development certificate on behalf of Charles Tent, said: “”It is not the height that determines whether or not the racking is development requiring planning permission. read more

first_imgHOMEOWNERS AFFECTED BY Spain’s economic crisis and their defenders hailed a big step forward today after Europe’s top court ruled that the country’s eviction laws breached EU rules.“There is no justice in Spain, but luckily there is in Europe,” said Delia Esther Molina, 57, an unemployed Cuban who is facing eviction, demonstrating outside the Spanish parliament.The European Court of Justice (EDJ) ruled that Spanish legislation breached a EU consumer rights directive by preventing courts from halting evictions based on “unfair” mortgage agreements.The Spanish government promised its law would be “corrected” to comply with the ruling.The decision by the EU court in Luxembourg gave a fresh boost for a popular protest movement which last month persuaded the Spanish parliament to consider reforms to the eviction laws.“We are very satisfied,” said Ada Colau, a spokeswoman for the Platform for Mortgage Victims (PAH), the organisation that brought that motion backed by 1.4 million signatures.“This is a big step forward for what we have been campaigning for, over four very hard years,” since the worst of Spain’s financial crisis broke out, she said.At the discretion of judgesThe Barcelona judge who took the case to the European court, Jose Maria Fernandez Seijo, said that “from now on, any judge who detects abusive clauses can decide as a precaution not to evict the consumer” until he has decided whether the terms of the mortgage are fair.Campaigners have accused banks of predatory lending during the Spanish construction boom that collapsed in 2008 and of misleading unwitting borrowers.“I bought my house in 2005. I’m not highly literate, so they really fooled me,” said Jorge Teran, an Ecuadoran plumber who lost his job in 2008.“If they had explained to me the interest rates and everything, I would never have signed.”In a deep recession which has pushed unemployment to record highs of 26 percent, hundreds of thousands of people have defaulted on their loans and been evicted as the banks scramble to get their loans back.Large number of evictions carried outSpain’s top legal authority, the General Council of Judicial Power, says 415,000 eviction orders have been issued since 2008, including for second homes, land and commercial property. Some 60 percent of those evictions have been carried out.In response to popular protests and a string of reported suicides of people facing eviction, Spain’s government in November passed a two-year moratorium on evictions – but campaigners insist it go further.The activist’s bill calls for an end to evictions and for insolvent homeowners to be allowed to write off their debts by surrendering their home.Under current Spanish law, a bank can pursue a mortgage holder to pay off the rest of a loan if the value of the seized property falls short.“I want to be able to hand them my home and have them write off the debt,” said Molina. “I have nothing.”The group also demands that empty properties held by Spanish banks be transformed into social housing.Colau said Spain was an “anomaly” in Europe for the harshness of its eviction laws.“The Spanish exception is over,” thanks to today’s ruling, she said.Gonzalo Moliner, chairman of the judicial council, said the change required by the European ruling was “immediately applicable” in Spain.The head of the Spanish consumers’ association Facua, Ruben Sanchez, called it “a turning point in relations between mortgage-holders and the banks”.Beyond the EU court’s ruling, PAH activists now demand Spain enshrine the group’s demands in new legislation.“They have to change the law, for all the people like me who were fooled,” said Teran.- © AFP 2013.last_img read more

first_imgHP Inc. said Thursday it plans to eliminate between 3,000 and 4,000 jobs over the next two years as it restructures amid falling sales.The company had 287,000 employees worldwide at this time last year. HP said the job cuts will save between $200 million and $300 million annually.Through the first three quarters of its current fiscal year, HP’s revenues totaled $35.7 billion, down from $39.2 billion in the same period a year earlier. Profits totaled $783 million, down from $854 million the prior year.HP Inc. took the personal computer and printer businesses from Hewlett-Packard Corp. when that company split in two last year. HP eliminated 3,300 jobs then in connection with that separation.HP’s printer group has substantial operations in Vancouver and Corvallis, Ore. After years of job cuts HP is expanding the Vancouver site as it pushes into 3-D printing, hoping to offset the decline in demand for conventional printers.last_img read more

first_imgPeople with their faces painted in European flag colours attend a rally organised by the pro-European People`s Vote campaign for a second EU referendum in Parliament Square, central London on March 23, 2019. Hundreds of thousands of pro-Europeans from across Britain were expected to march through London on Saturday calling for another referendum on EU membership with the country mired in political paralysis over Brexit. AFPAnti-Brexit protesters flooded into central London by the hundreds of thousands on Saturday, demanding that Britain’s Conservative-led government hold a new referendum on whether Britain should leave the European Union.The “People’s Vote March” snaked from Park Lane and other locations to converge on the UK Parliament, where the fate of Brexit will be decided in the coming weeks.Marchers carried European Union flags and signs praising the longstanding ties between Britain and continental Europe. The protest drew people from across Britain who are determined to force prime minister Theresa May’s government to alter its march toward Brexit.May also is coming under rising pressure from her own Conservative Party to either step down or set a date for her resignation as her political support continues to wilt. The coming week is seen as crucial as political rivals jockey for position to succeed her.Conservative Party legislator George Freeman tweeted that a new leader is needed.”I’m afraid it’s all over for the PM. She’s done her best. But across the country you can see the anger. Everyone feels betrayed. Government’s gridlocked. Trust in democracy collapsing. This can’t go on. We need a new PM who can reach out & build some sort of coalition for a Plan B,” he tweeted.Liberal Democrat leader Vince Cable, invited to help lead the march in favor of a second referendum, called the crowd gathered in central London impressive and unified.”There is a huge turnout of people here from all walks of life, of all ages and from all over the country,” he tweeted. “We are a Remain country now with 60 percent wanting to stop the Brexit mess.”Police did not provide a crowd estimate. Independent legislator Chuka Umunna and others supporting a second Brexit referendum estimated the crowd at 1 million.More than 4 million people endorsed an electronic petition this week in favor of revoking Article 50, the act that formally triggered the Brexit process.The march comes as May, who opposes a second referendum on Britain’s EU membership, is easing away from plans to hold a third vote on her troubled Brexit withdrawal plan, which has been strongly rejected twice by Parliament.In a letter to lawmakers on Friday night, May said she might not seek passage of her Brexit withdrawal plan in Parliament next week. The embattled leader said she would only bring her EU divorce plan back to Parliament if there seems to be enough backing for it to pass.”If it appears that there is not sufficient support to bring the deal back next week, or the House rejects it again, we can ask for another extension before 12 April, but that will involve holding European Parliament elections,” she said.May’s changing stance reflects the plan’s dismal chances in the House of Commons after two prior defeats.She also says she would need the approval of House Speaker John Bercow to bring the plan back for a third time. Bercow has said a third vote would violate parliamentary rules against repeatedly voting on the same thing unless May’s Brexit divorce plan is altered.Almost three years after Britons voted to walk away from the EU, the bloc’s leaders this week seized control of the Brexit timetable from May to avert a chaotic departure on March 29 that would be disruptive for the world’s biggest trading bloc and deeply damaging for Britain.EU leaders at a summit in Brussels set two deadlines for Britain to leave the bloc of nearly half a billion people or to take an entirely new path in considering its EU future.They agreed to extend the Brexit date until May 22, on the eve of the EU Parliament elections, if May can persuade the British Parliament to endorse her Brexit divorce deal.Failing that, they gave May until April 12 to choose between leaving the bloc without a divorce deal or deciding on a radically new path, such as revoking Britain’s decision to leave, holding a new referendum on Brexit or finding a cross-party consensus for a very different kind of Brexit.Despite May’s letter to lawmakers, it was not clear what path her minority government would take this week.The anti-Brexit marchers on Saturday included 63-year-old Edmund Sides, who spent the last three weeks walking from Wales to London in order to take part.Sides, a geologist, said he wanted to be able to speak to people along the way, encouraging families that have been split between Leave and Remain to mend their fences and talk.”The whole country isn’t doing enough of that,” he said.He is worried about the vicious tone that Brexit arguments have started to take and worries about national cohesion.”People fear the atmosphere is very dangerous in this country,” Sides said.last_img

first_img Register Now » The deployment of IT services has historically been a one-way street from the software provider to the IT department and, then, the end user. End users received a ‘you must use this application’ mandate from IT, which had to integrate services into the enterprise. Younger workers who grew up with technology, generally lumped together as ‘millennials’,are pushing back. They are having a profound impact on technology choices in the workplace and driving a new equilibrium of power.The top-down approach to IT services made sense when IT departments did extensive product evaluations, purchased software from IT vendors and installed, configured and maintained that software. This significant enterprise investment resulted in a virtual mandate that all employees use corporate applications.Related:6 Tips for Managing Millennials (Whether You Find Them to be Entitled or Not)End users were relatively naive technologically, which made them more receptive to learning the enterprise’s applications. In addition, end users had few or no comparison applications against which to evaluate them.With the cloud and Software as a Service (SaaS) applications now becoming viable and even beneficial means of deploying IT services, IT is going through a new evolutionary phase. Evaluating and deploying IT services no longer require significant time and capital. Upgrades and maintenance occur more rapidly and with more consistency. Without the hard constraints of implementing back-end services on premises, IT can focus on matching available cloud services to end users requirements.The age of millennials. With the advent of the iPhone, smartphone use exploded among consumers and the business workforce. Indeed, the line between a consumer and a business user is now blurred, as they are typically one and the same. These users carry the millennial label, as they are the first generation of converged users.What does this means for IT? End users in the workforce are no longer completely naive of technology. In fact, millennials have a strong understanding of what technology can do for them. A study commissioned by Intel Corporation in 2013found that millennials want more from technology, and that in itself has had an impact on innovation in areas ranging from personalization and self-configuration to ease of use.A manual that teaches employees how to use an application is a relic today. Millennials are a new breed of business users who enter the workforce with strong expectations of how technology should be delivered and function. In the truest sense, the democratization of IT has begun.When faced with ‘older-generation’ technology that doesn’t meet their expectations, millennials have the technical savvy to find applications on consumer app stores and to attempt to integrate them into their business world. There is even a name for these millennials: rogue users. You can’t really fault them. Instead of being forced to adapt to technology that doesn’t work for them, they seek out technology that helps them work effectively and efficiently.Related:Want to Nab Top, Young Talent? Millennial-Proof Your Office.Unfortunately, many consumer apps lack features such as business-level security, centralized administration and control, and support and quality-of-service metrics that businesses require. These deficits set up an end user vs. IT conflict that generally results in a winner and a loser.A new equilibrium. A new dawn has arrived for IT, which if embraced, can create a collaborative equilibrium that will have a positive impact on workforce productivity while lowering IT costs and complexities. By collaborating with millennials and cloud vendors, IT can drive consumer features into business-hardened cloud services, creating benefits for end users, IT and the enterprise. The alternatives — forcing employees to use antiquated vendor-driven services or making IT manage multiple consumer-based apps — will lead to one side or the other feeling the pain. Neither side will hold 100 percent of the power going forward. They can achieve a happy medium by working together with cloud vendors committed to delivering business-hardened services that meet the expectations of millennial end users,.Where the future lies. Clearly, the ability of end users to influence IT to deliver a better user experience without compromising enterprise requirements for security, privacy, manageability, support and reliability is a step in the right direction. Service providers can play a key role in integrating feedback from end users and IT into next-generation services that can better meet the needs of both.Related: Want to Nab Top, Young Talent?

The pass is inches out of the reach of Wagner, who is in solid position to break up a pass that isn’t closer to the sideline.“When you look at some of the throws, particularly the two to Ricky, late in the game, tight windows, very impressive,” head coach Steve Wilks said. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires 7 Comments   Share   Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Top Stories On several occasions, Rosen threw his receivers open, putting the ball through tight windows and keeping them out of reach of defenders.Here are five throws that stood out from Arizona’s 20-17 home loss to Seattle.The home run ballLet’s start out with a deep ball that would’ve been close to a score.A play-action shot to J.J. Nelson hit the wideout well enough after he blew past the Seahawks’ backend defenders, but Nelson couldn’t come up with the catch in the second quarter. The drop forced the Cardinals to put together a lengthy drive that was aided by a pass interference penalty, putting Arizona in the red zone. Fantastic throw from Rosen.

Williams made the grab, and the play was first ruled a touchdown before replay showed he didn’t get a second foot cleanly inbounds.

Rosen eventually settled for a bullet of a pass at the knees of Williams, which once again kept it out of the hands of the Seattle defensive backs. Thomas, who was trailing Williams on the play, ended up breaking his leg on the play, and Rosen even spoke to that in detailing the touchdown pass after the game.“It’s not really as much a scheme to it as we just got heavy play action and we got two guys on routes and hopefully one of them will find a way,” the rookie said. “Just kind of sat back there for awhile, had Larry and Chad on two really deep crossing routes and kind of felt the pocket, I had some time so went back and forth a couple times. Maybe if I’d had gave Chad a little better ball, Earl wouldn’t have been on the ground. I feel kind of bad about that.” – / 28 We need to import some legit receivers in to save Rosen pic.twitter.com/EzxdiylXao— Ian Wharton (@NFLFilmStudy) September 30, 2018Rosen could nitpick that the ball should have traveled 60 yards through the air instead of 55, but a catchable ball is a catchable ball.Stepping up in the pocketRelated LinksCardinals drops, Earl Thomas’ errant finger stand out vs. SeahawksIn a loss that had plenty of blown opportunities, Dawson’s kicks stand outCardinals open up playbook but go conservative late in loss to SeahawksThe Cardinals are 0-4 yet the biggest takeaway is cause for celebrationRosen’s performance provides rare bright spot for CardinalsThis one looked like trouble upon the release. Rosen didn’t panic with the pocket collapsing toward him, stepping into a throw just before he was clobbered by a Seattle pass-rusher.More frighteningly, he put the ball in the middle of five players: two receivers from Arizona and three defenders. Dog wuuuuutttttt pic.twitter.com/WxhyDMSVjC— Jon Ledyard (@LedyardNFLDraft) October 1, 2018Patience, accuracy and a bullet The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Josh Rosen’s composure might’ve been the big surprise in his debut as the Arizona Cardinals’ starting quarterback Sunday.Take away his lack of NFL experience, and it was still as eye-popping of a performance as one could have in completing 15 of 27 passes for just 180 yards. Save for missing a very wide open Christian Kirk in the end zone while in the red zone, the rookie’s game against the Seattle Seahawks couldn’t have been much more impressive. But like Rosen’s other strikes from his starting debut, the only player with his head turned is a teammate, tight end Ricky Seals-Jones, who made the grab while streaking along the right sideline for a 31-yard gain to start off what would become a game-tying touchdown drive in the front end of the fourth quarter.last_img read more
