Keeping Young Workers Safe on the Job

first_imgGovernment is working to keep young people safe on the job. Last week occupational health and safety officers conducted a safety education blitz at 109 retail, service, and fast food businesses across the province. They targeted workers between the ages of 18 and 30 to explain their rights and responsibilities under the Occupational Health and Safety Act. “Establishing a commitment to safety early on in a person’s career is critical,” said Labour and Advanced Education Minister Kelly Regan. “These visits give us the opportunity to get in front of young people and make sure they know their rights and responsibilities when it comes to safety in the workplace.” During the blitz, occupational health and safety officers delivered sessions to more than 260 young workers as well as several student groups at Saint Mary’s University. These visits are a part of government’s efforts to improve workplace safety. Officers have already exceeded the total number of targeted inspections of high-risk employers and industries conducted last year. Since January 1, they have conducted more than 944 targeted inspections of 714 businesses issuing a total of 1,146 orders and 1,476 warnings.last_img read more

RCMP end search of British Columbia farm where human remains found

first_imgSALMON ARM, B.C. – The RCMP have completed their search of a British Columbia farm where the remains of an 18-year-old woman were found.Cpl. Dan Moskaluk said the rural property near Salmon Arm was turned over to its owners at midday Thursday after all police personnel and equipment left the site.“We’re not in a position to be discussing as to what we were looking for, what led us to the property and how we obtained the search warrant,” he said.Mounties began searching the 10-hectare property on Salmon River Road on Oct. 19 and last week said Traci Genereaux’s remains were found.The investigation into her death continues and it is being treated as suspicious, Moskaluk said.Genereaux was last heard from on May 29 in Vernon, B.C.RCMP established a tip line and are encouraging anyone with information to call police.“In speaking with the investigators earlier this week, they were receiving information directly through the tip line and we’re hopeful further information will come forward,” Moskaluk said.No charges have been laid in connection with her death or disappearance, Moskaluk said.Police removed temporary shelters and heavy equipment from the property earlier this week.Four other women have been reported missing in the north Okanagan area in the past 20 months but police have not linked the search to any other investigations. Moskaluk said officers have been in touch with their families about completing the search on the property.“We continue to offer whatever support that we can and provide them with the information that we can,” he said.A title search shows the property that was searched by police is owned by Wayne and Evelyn Sagmoen.Police have not said if they are related to Curtis Wayne Sagmoen, who was charged Oct. 17 with disguising his face with intent to commit an offence, uttering threats and weapons offences.The charges came after police issued a warning to “the general public and women sex workers” about a possible risk around Salmon River Road after a incident on Aug. 28 when a woman was allegedly threatened with a firearm.Police have not linked the search of the farm with the public warning.Sagmoen is scheduled to appear in court in Vernon on Nov. 23.last_img read more

Ottawa Senators owner Melnyk losing popularity with both fans and politicians

first_imgOTTAWA — Two exiles will return to Ottawa’s Canadian Tire Centre on Saturday: star defenceman Erik Karlsson and former super-fan Shaila Anwar, who hasn’t been to a game since the Senators traded him.Anwar had season tickets for more than 20 years, paying $6,000 for a pair in the first row of the 300s. She’d forgone vacations in favour of winter-evening trips to the rink in Ottawa’s far-western suburbs. In the earliest days, she put off moving out on her own so she could afford the games.“I used to think of the Canadian Tire Centre as my big, gigantic rec room,” Anwar says. “When you go to 35, 40 games a year, it becomes a part of your life.”The Karlsson trade in September broke Anwar’s faith in the team. Now owner Eugene Melnyk is fighting on a second front, after the apparent collapse of a massive land deal that would have seen the Senators move to a new arena in downtown Ottawa.That was for federal land called LeBreton Flats, right by Parliament Hill, that’s been fallow since an urban-renewal scheme in the 1960s stopped halfway through.The deal with the federal government is officially on hold, but Melnyk is suing his main partner in the plan for $700 million, so nobody really thinks it’s coming back.The feds are trying to figure out what on earth to do.Through a spokesman, Melnyk declined to comment on his relationship with Ottawa and Ottawans.“There’s no doubt that there’s a tension in the relationship, and has been for years, between Eugene Melnyk and the residents of Ottawa,” says Catherine McKenney, the Ottawa city councillor who represents the LeBreton Flats area.The Senators are beloved. Melnyk, not so much.“He’s the head of a popular sports team who has had billboards up asking him to leave,” McKenney says. “That obviously has an impact on how politicians see the relationship.”Melnyk bought the team 15 years ago, rescuing it from bankruptcy. He was a swashbuckling figure: a billionaire who’d made his money in medical publishing and drug manufacturing, who lived in Toronto and Barbados, who bred racehorses.Melnyk was visibly tickled to own an NHL team, the Sens were a playoff contender, and with their finances stabilized, everyone could focus on hockey.Led by Daniel Alfredsson, the late-round draft pick who became a star in the Sens’ system, the team made it to the Stanley Cup final four years later. That turned out to be the peak.Bryan Murray, from a town in western Quebec close to Ottawa, coached the team to the Cup final in 2007 and then moved up to the front office as general manager. Under Murray the team started going through coaches like chicken wings. The Sens’ budget tightened up, top players from 2007 left and big-name free agents stayed away.In 2013, Alfredsson signed with the Detroit Red Wings, shocking not just fans but his own teammates. The Senators’ biggest star said publicly that he wanted a chance to win a Stanley Cup, but the deeper truth was that the Senators wouldn’t give him a payday he believed he was owed after playing at a deep discount the year before.“He was like a god in Ottawa,” Anwar says. “He was my favourite player, without question.”At least there was Erik Karlsson, another gifted young Swede, another product of the Senators’ farm system, busting out as a world-class offensive defenceman. The Sens made him their new captain.Both Alfredsson and Karlsson were Ottawa folk heroes. They each moved to the city and said they intended to stay for good.Alfredsson’s brother joined him in town and got a job with the police department. Karlsson married an Ottawa girl, Melinda Currey, who’d gone to Carleton University. When they got engaged, it wasn’t at some Swedish retreat; Karlsson Instagrammed the ring, embedded in a pizza from a trendy Ottawa restaurant.The Karlssons bought an expensive but basically normal house in the old Glebe neighbourhood downtown. The city grieved with the Karlssons when their son was stillborn late last winter.Melnyk himself had a nearly lethal bout with liver disease that led him to take up organ donation as a team cause. A fan saved his life with a live donation for a transplant in 2015, after a public appeal. Surgeons said 500 people stepped up to be tested.The donor said all he wanted was for the Senators to win a championship.In late 2015, it still seemed possible. Karlsson had won two Norris trophies as the NHL’s best defenceman and the Senators talked about building a team around him.Melnyk’s bid for LeBreton Flats got the tentative go-ahead over a flashier but seemingly riskier bid backed by big money from Montreal.Those plans were always going to move slowly but Melnyk himself started downplaying them after a few months of closed-door talks. Maybe the thousands of condo units supporting the rest of the project wouldn’t sell, he fretted publicly.In January 2017, Melnyk dismissed popular president Cyril Leeder, who had been with the team since the start, without any real public explanation. That August, Murray’s cancer took him.“Everything really changed when Leeder got fired and Bryan Murray died,” Anwar says.The Sens’ on-ice performance tanked. Attendance sank. In March, up went those billboards, crowdfunded by angry fans, with the Twitter-friendly message “#MELNYKOUT.”Last September, Senators traded Karlsson to San Jose before he could leave for his own big free-agent contract with some other team.“They can do it once. But the second time… it’s a lot harder to forgive,” Anwar says.Ottawa has handed Melnyk plenty of his own disappointments. In 2009, he pitched city council on the idea of adding a major soccer complex, complete with a top-tier MLS team, to his suburban hockey arena. Councillors said no, deciding instead to redevelop downtown Lansdowne Park into a home for a new CFL franchise.In 2013, when the Ontario government was keen on opening new casinos across the province, Melnyk pitched for one. City council again said no.LeBreton Flats was supposed to be the deal that made up for it all: a new rink in the heart of the city, on land Ottawans desperately want to be used for something great. Everyone was going to get what they wanted.Now, no.The city has put so many precious things in Melnyk’s hands and been hurt. Can the relationship be repaired?“I think a lot of this is about money,” McKenney says. “If he gets his own way one day and gets to make money, I think that relationship could be repaired quickly. The truth is, I have very little sympathy for the millionaires involved.”Anwar says she wants to be a fan who goes to all the games again, but “at this point, I really feel like it’s not happening until there’s new ownership.”She hopes a failure at LeBreton Flats will help that happen.“Maybe it’s a short-term pain for a long-term gain.”David Reevely, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Jo Brand And Meera Syal Become Dementia Friends

first_imgComedians and actresses Jo Brand and Meera Syal have become two of the first Dementia Friends as part of the Alzheimer’s Society’s trailblazing awareness movement.Dementia Friends is an initiative that aims to give a million people an improved awareness of the condition by 2015, as a new YouGov survey reveals that just under half (48%) of people think they have a good understanding of dementia. From today anyone in England can follow in Jo and Meera’s footsteps and register online for a Dementia Friend session too.Alzheimer’s Society ambassador Jo, who recently appeared in BBC4 drama series Getting On and the charity’s new supporter Meera, best known for The Kumars at No 42 took part in the first official Dementia Friends session along with other members of the public including a junior doctor and a member of the National Federation of Women’s Institute.The free volunteer-led information sessions are being rolled out from Bristol to Sunderland today. They aim to improve public knowledge of dementia, by helping people understand what living with the condition might be like, and the small things that they could do to make a difference to people living in their community.The roll out is being jointly funded by the Department of Health and the Cabinet Office , as part of the Prime Minister’s challenge on dementia. As well as encouraging people to sign up as Dementia Friends, Alzheimer’s Society is also calling on people to volunteer to be a Dementia Friends Champion. Dementia Friends Champions talk to people about being a Dementia Friend in their communities. They attend a training course, receive on-going support and are part of a growing network of people creating dementia friendly communities together.Jeremy Hughes, Alzheimer’s Society Chief Executive said: “With so few people feeling they know enough about dementia, we are so excited to be able to invite everyone up and down the country to become a Dementia Friend. Dementia Friends isn’t about creating experts, it’s about helping people understand a little bit more about what it’s like to live with the condition and then turn that understanding into action – anyone of any age can be a Dementia Friend.“From helping someone to find the right bus to spreading the word about dementia, every action counts. Sign up to be a Dementia Friend and you can help us to transform England by changing public attitudes and making life better for people with dementia.”Meera Syal, who is speaking as an Alzheimer’s Society supporter for the first time today, said: “One of my close family members has dementia and many of my friends have parents and grandparents living with the condition. I wanted to be a Dementia Friend so that I could start to think about how I can help in my community. I am particularly keen to raise awareness of dementia within the Asian community, indeed in all communities where people may not know ehat support is out there and available. Dementia Friends would be a great way to get people talking and to ensure that people with dementia can be included wherever they live.”Alzheimer’s Society Ambassador Jo Brand, who has professional experience of dementia through her previous work in the health sector said: “Being a Dementia Friend is about being that little bit more aware because it’s the small things that make a big difference. I trained as a psychiatric nurse so know all too well how dementia affects people.“The Dementia Friends’ information session I took part in gave a real insight into what everyday life is like for someone with dementia. This really helps you to realise how showing a bit more understanding could make a huge difference.”There are already 60 Dementia Friend and 30 Dementia Friends Champion sessions lined up across England over the next three months with more due to be announced in the near future.

Akon To Launch First Solar Academy In Africa

first_imgAkon and Akon Lighting Africa initiative have just announced the creation of a “Solar Academy” to develop skills and expertise in sustainable energy in Africa.This professional training center of excellence is a first on the continent and targets future African entrepreneurs, engineers and technicians. It will open its doors this summer in Bamako, Mali and welcome any Africans wanting to help develop the use of solar power.This project is being introduced under the patronage of Solektra international, a partner of Akon Lighting Africa, in collaboration some European experts who will supply training equipment and programs. It aims to reinforce expertise in every aspect of installing and maintaining solar-powered electric systems and micro-grids in particular, which are really taking off in rural Africa. With its 320 days sunshine a year, the continent is perfectly suited to the development of solar power, particularly since 622 million Africans still do not have access to electricity.“We have the sun and innovative technologies to bring electricity to homes and communities. We now need to consolidate African expertise and that is our objective” explained Samba Bathily at the second United Nations Sustainable Energy for All Forum last month. “We are doing more than just investing in clean energy. We are investing in human capital. We can achieve great milestones and accelerate the African transformation process on condition that we start training a new generation of highly qualified African engineers, technicians and entrepreneurs now” he added.With 70% of the population aged under 35, Africa is the continent with the youngest population today. One of the biggest challenges it faces is training and creating sustainable employment. “We expect the Africans who graduate from this center to devise new, innovative, technical solutions. With this Academy, we can capitalize on Akon Lighting Africa and go further,” Thione Niang said.Indeed, Akon Lighting Africa adopted a sustainable business model from the outset – providing training and creating jobs enabling local populations to embrace technical solutions and become self-sufficient. The Solar Academy will help to extend this business model and promote inclusive growth throughout Africa.Source:Akon Lighting Africalast_img read more

Ban deplores outrageous attack on UN office and other sites in northern

“The Secretary-General deplores these outrageous acts of violence deliberately targeting innocent civilians and United Nations personnel who work tirelessly to alleviate the dire suffering of Somali citizens,” Mr. Ban’s spokesperson said in a statement.“He stresses the neutrality of the United Nations as well as humanitarian personnel, and urges all parties to support and facilitate the delivery of assistance to the Somali population,” the statement added.The UNDP compound was hit by an explosion caused by a vehicle that had forced its way into the compound at approximately 10 a.m. local time.“At present, we can confirm that two national UN staff have been killed, while two others were critically injured and medically evacuated to Djibouti,” UN spokesperson Marie Okabe told reporters in New York.The other explosions in the Hargeisa area, as well as in Puntland, did not involve UN premises. Somalia, which has not had a functioning government since 1991, has been wracked with violence in recent months, despite the signing of a UN-brokered peace deal between the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) and the rebel Alliance for the Re-liberation of Somalia (ARS) aimed at ending the fighting.The UN has been assisting peace efforts in the Horn of Africa nation through the UN Political Office for Somalia (UNPOS), led by the Secretary-General’s Special Representative, Ahmedou Ould-Abdallah. To assist in these efforts, the Secretary-General today appointed Charles Petrie of France as his Deputy Special Representative for Somalia.Mr. Petrie brings to this job 18 years of extensive experience, during which he has carried out policy, operational and developmental activities with the UN. He has served in various postings in several conflict settings in Africa, including in Somalia. 29 October 2008Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has vehemently condemned the multiple attacks in northern Somalia today, which included a suicide car bombing at the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) compound in Hargeisa that killed two UN staff and seriously injured six others, two of them critically. read more

5 talking points from this weekends Premier League action

first_img1. Paulinho can thrive at TottenhamMOST OF TOTTENHAM’S new signings have been criticised since joining the club, and this is perhaps understandable after they spent over £100million in the summer on new players only to lose 6-0 to Man City recently.Yet a player who appears to be one of the club’s more astute purchases is the Brazilian international Paulinho.The 25-year-old got the all-important equaliser as Spurs earned a hard-fought win over Sunderland.Of course, he is far from the finished product, but if Paulinho can improve his finishing slightly, Tottenham could have a midfielder capable of scoring 10-plus goals a season.2. How many games can David Moyes afford to lose?Every time Man United suffer a setback under David Moyes, the message is always the same.Well informed and reliable sources close to the club, including Gary Neville, have continually insisted that Moyes isn’t going anywhere and that the Scottish manager will be given time to build a team — as his predecessor Alex Ferguson was.Nevertheless, two home losses in a row against Newcastle and Everton has prompted many to question whether such patience is justified.If their rivals for a Champions League spot continue to pull away from them in the table after the New Year, it would be no surprise if drastic action was taken, despite suggestions to the contrary.3. Teams now fear coming to AnfieldIn the days of Bill Shankly and Bob Paisley, Anfield was regarded by opposition teams as one of the most formidable grounds to visit in football.The legendary stadium has not quite held the same standing in recent times, though if Liverpool continue to perform as they have been of late, it may well regain its foreboding aura.They have nine goals in their past two games alone — over half of which have been scored by Luis Suarez, who is unquestionably the best striker in the league at the moment — against Norwich and then West Ham yesterday.While their away form hasn’t always been exemplary, they have a perfect record at home save for a single 1-0 loss to Mauricio Pochettino’s impressive Southampton side.And with Suarez in such fine form, the Uruguayan may well just propel the Reds to a Champions League spot.4. Man City look mentally fragileFootball writer and economist Simon Kuper has, in the past, calculated that statistically, the advantage of playing at home is the equivalent of a one-goal head start on average.However, irrespective of such claims, Man City’s drastic inability to emulate their home form outside of the Etihad remains baffling.Whereas they have routinely thrashed the likes of Tottenham and Man United at their own ground, away, they have been defeated by Cardiff, Sunderland and Aston Villa, while also failing to beat Southampton yesterday.It’s difficult to identify precisely why they suffer from such inconsistency, yet it’s patently bad news for their title ambitions, as a team’s tendency to play to their potential only sporadically is suggestive of both mental fragility and a lack of leadership.5. Everton show their Champions League credentialsSuper-sub Gerard Deulofeu. AP Photo/Kirsty WigglesworthRoberto Martinez looks to have augmented the tidy side, built by David Moyes, with a few gems and astute signings. Gareth Barry and James McCarthy held sway for large patches of this afternoon’s Premier League draw at The Emirates and full-backs Seamus Coleman and Bryan Oviedo were a constant threat.Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was forced to dip into his bench to turn the tide and his triple substitution paid off as Tomas Rosicky and Theo Walcott set up Mesut Ozil’s goal. Martinez responded by throwing on 19-year-old Barcelona loanee Gerard Deulofeu. The teenager scored a cracking goal within minutes of his intriduction and confirmed the Toffees as a side with realistic Champions League ambitions.Additional reporting by Patrick McCarrySeamus Coleman linked with Arsenal move>Berbatov shows coolness under pressure as Meulensteen enjoys first win as Fulham boss>last_img read more

LIC Rescues Governments 10 Stake Sale in Indian Oil Corporation

first_imgThe government-owned insurance major, Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC), often comes to the government’s rescue by supporting stake sale in State-run companies. This time, LIC bought 86 percent shares of the Indian Oil Corp (IOC) sold by the government, NDTV Profit reported.Last week, the government had decided to sell 10 percent stake in IOC on Monday, but unfortunately the sale coincided with a plunge in the benchmark equity index by over 1,600 points. The Sensex faced its biggest one-day fall in the past seven years on the day. The stock market tumble failed to generate enough buying interest in Rs 9,100 crore or $1.4 billion government stake sale in IOC and LIC had to step in to make the offer successful.The State-owned insurer has also helped the government’s stake sale offers in the past, buying shares in banks and mining firms that were divested earlier.In January, LIC had bought more than 28.47 crore shares or 4.51 percent stake in Coal India, amounting to nearly half of the divested stake worth Rs 22,558 crore. It also participated in Steel Authority of India’s (SAIL) stake sale last year.The investments made by the insurer have turned out to be fruitful in some cases. LIC had invested in the State Bank of India (SBI) stake in January last year and the bank’s stock price have gone up by 60 percent since then. LIC’s stake in IOC has now risen to 11.11 percent from 2.52 percent.But the scale of support offered by LIC on Monday is likely to lead to a debate on the government’s divestment plans. “The way the government has structured the sales so far, they are on target unless the market conditions really deteriorate. In that case, even LIC can’t save them,” said Aneesh Srivastava, chief investment officer at IDBI Federal Life Insurance Co.The government had very few options to step back on IOC stake sale on Monday, given that the schedule was announced only on Friday. “We have to rethink our strategy,” divestment secretary Aradhana Johri said after the sale.NTPC, Bharat Electronics, Hindustan Copper and Coal India are next in the line of the government’s stake sale offers.last_img read more

Depending on judgement not speedometer

first_imgA damaged speedometer of a CNG-run auto-rickshaw. Photo: Toriqul IslamDrivers of motorised vehicles  – from battery-run rickshaws to human haulers, from CNG-run auto-rickshaws to buses that rule the Dhaka streets – do not know the real-time speed while running the vehicles.In fact, Dhaka’s public transports hardly have any functioning speedometer which, experts say, is important for safe driving.Reckless driving costs at least 2,123 lives in the country and more than 100 in Dhaka in the past four months that raised huge public outcry in recent times.These vehicles are run as per judgement of the drivers, about 50 drivers of buses, minibuses, human haulers and CNG-run autos told this correspondent.Asked how they drive the vehicles in such a situation, a CNG-run auto-rickshaw driver, Marfat said, “I drive it as I feel it to be the right speed.A dilapidated dashboard of a bus. Photo: Toriqul IslamI’ve been running this way for about 12 years.”In some areas in the city, authorities impose restriction on the speed of motor vehicles, within 40 -30 kilometres per hour and in such case, another driver, said they just try to drive a bit slow.“I’ve developed certain judgement, driving for the past 18 years. I run the vehicle as my eyes dictate me. It doesn’t create any problem to me at least,” said Tohidul, a driver of the Orka Transports.Pointing to the dashboard of his bus, an Alif Paribahan bus driver said it does not function except for the meter that indicates availability of oil.Some of the transports do not even have the dashboards, according to spot accounts.Sumon, a driver of a bus on route 6 in the city, was driving a bus that does not have either dashboard or any speedometer. Asked why he did not fix the dashboard, he said, “I don’t know anything. You rather ask this question to the owners.”Most of the drivers also do not know how to use a speedometer, suggests their answers during interviews.As there is no functioning speedometer in their vehicles, the drivers are not aware of the highest or the lowest speed while driving.A driver of a human hauler on the Niketon-Farmgate route said, “I don’t know anything about it. I drive this vehicle based on my assumptions.”A speedometer of a standstill CNG-run auto-rickshaw shows speed of 60km/hr.

Article 72 of the ordinance, has kept provision for cancellation of the permit, “If the vehicle to which permit relates had bad record of accidents or if the accident was due to the use of defective vehicle”.“An engine vehicle must have a speedometer. A vehicle cannot be given permission for plying without a speedometer,” said Md Nurul Islam, director (engineering wing) of the Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA).BRTA’s deputy director ASM Hasan Al Amin added, “A speedometer is very important for safe driving. These kinds of vehicles seen on the streets that do not have it are a threat to both passengers and pedestrians.”As many as 114 people were killed and hundreds injured in at least 56 road accidents in Dhaka between 1 January and 15 April this year, according to Bangladesh Passengers’ Association of Bangladesh.last_img read more

Spending on homebuilding made up a little less than half of that total, reaching an annual rate of $294.2 billion (up 3.0 percent from September and 20.8 percent from October 2011).The increase in private residential spending was driven by gains in the single-family category, which posted an annual rate of $141.3 billion in October (3.6 percent above September and 29.0 percent above October 2011). While multifamily spending was comparatively less ($23.8 billion), it saw a more impressive year-over-year increase of 53.2 percent.Meanwhile, spending on private nonresidential construction–which includes healthcare facilities, lodging, and commercial spaces, among others–hit an estimated annual rate of $297.9 billion, rising almost $1 billion (0.3 percent) from the revised September estimate.””Power”” ($80.6 billion), “”manufacturing”” ($47.0 billion), and “”commercial”” ($45.0) were the most active categories in terms of private nonresidential construction spending.
