Indigenous consultations on TMX pipeline on schedule Natural Resources minister

first_imgThe existing Trans Mountain pipeline crosses a river in Chilliwack, B.C., near Cheam First Nation. (APTN file)The Canadian PressNatural Resources Minister Amarjeet Sohi says consultations with Indigenous groups about the stalled Trans Mountain pipeline expansion are progressing well and he still expects to wrap up the court-ordered process by May.On a conference call from Houston, where he’s attending the CERAWeek energy conference, Sohi told reporters his department has now met with more than 100 of the 117 Indigenous communities expected to be impacted by the project.The Federal Appeal Court last summer overturned approval of the project to triple oil shipments from Edmonton to the West Coast, ruling that the NEB had not properly considered its impact on marine life nor had Ottawa meaningfully consulted with Indigenous groups.Last month, the National Energy Board found that the pipeline is still in the public interest despite the risk that an increase in tanker traffic could adversely affect southern resident killer whales, hurt related Indigenous culture and increase greenhouse gas emissions.It added 16 new recommendations for federal government action in addition to the 156 conditions in its initial approval in 2016.Sohi says the recommendations, which the NEB said are not within its power to order, are already being studied by his department and will be considered in the government’s decision on TMX when consultations are complete.“The NEB report informs our ongoing consultations and those recommendations will be discussed once the cabinet is ready to make the final decision,” he said.Cabinet is under immense pressure to decide the fate of the pipeline before the federal election in the fall.There is also pressure to get the expansion built because Ottawa bought the existing pipeline from Kinder Morgan for $4.5 billion last August, after political opposition to the expansion left the company’s shareholders reluctant to proceed.last_img read more

Heavy rains and continuing conflict impede relief effort in Somalia – UN

Heavy rains in Somalia have made roads some impassable, rendering the delivery of relief difficult in areas with dire humanitarian needs, the United Nations refugee agency said today, adding that the bad weather and insecurity could be the reason fewer people are crossing the border into refugee camps in Kenya.People arriving in the town of Dobley, some 18 kilometres from the Kenyan border, have told staff of the UN High Commissioner for Refugee (UNHCR) that they had fled rumours of impending military operations and threats by Al Shabaab insurgents that they would be forced to return to their areas of origin, according to the agency’s spokesperson in Geneva, Adrian Edwards.Last weekend, six trucks carrying nearly 180 internally displaced persons (IDPs) from Afgooye, near the capital, Mogadishu, arrived in Dobley after travelling for 27 days on flooded roads. They said that they had been instructed by Al Shabaab to return to their farms, but had instead decided to travel to Dobley to seek help.In Mogadishu, UNHCR and its partners are finalizing an assessment of IDPs settlements. Preliminary results indicate that there are nearly 300 displaced persons’ sites of varying sizes in the city.Meanwhile, a UNHCR-supported report launched yesterday in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi, calls for assistance for civilians harmed by the conflict in Somalia. The report, entitled Civilian Harm in Somalia: Creating an Appropriate Response, points out that there is currently no international legal obligation for parties to the conflict to redress the adverse effects of their military actions on civilians.UNHCR stressed the moral imperative of compensating civilians for losses of property, injury or life as a result of military activities.“We also call upon donors to provide the necessary financial support to fund implementation of the recommendations in the report, so that an effective policy on making amends can be established by AMISOM [African Union Mission in Somalia],” said Mr. Edwards.The 60-page report recommends the establishment of a mechanism to track, analyze, investigate and respond to all incidents of civilian harm. It also calls for all parties to the conflict in Somalia to immediately cease targeting civilians and humanitarian agencies for attack. 11 November 2011Heavy rains in Somalia have made roads some impassable, rendering the delivery of relief difficult in areas with dire humanitarian needs, the United Nations refugee agency said today, adding that the bad weather and insecurity could be the reason fewer people are crossing the border into refugee camps in Kenya. read more

Wigneswaran assures rift in TNA will be sorted

In his meeting with the Indian High Commissioner, Wigneswaran requested India to secure the release of the 217 LTTE cadres still in detention. The Tamils consider these to be political prisoners but the government sees them as hardcore terrorists. Indian aid was also sought to rehabilitate about 12,000 released LTTE cadres who are finding it difficult to survive in post-war society. When the High Commissioner spoke about the paucity of funds, the Chief Minister said that the Tamils are looking up to India for help because they have no one else to turn to. Briefing the media on his talks with the High Commissioner, Wigneswaran said that the envoy expressed concern over internal dissensions in the TNA and said that such dissensions could be used by the majority community to deny the Tamils their rights at a time when chances of finding a political solution to the Tamil question are brightening. The Chief Minister of Sri Lanka’s Tamil-dominated Northern Province, C V Wigneswaran, has assured India that the differences in the  Tamil National Alliance (TNA) will be ironed out and that unity will be maintained to enable the Tamils to secure their rights in Sri Lanka, the New Indian Express reported.This assurance was given to the Indian High Commissioner in Lanka, Y.K.Sinha, when he had a two-hour meeting Chief Minister Wigneswaran in Jaffna. Sinha was on a three-day tour of the Northern Province which ended on Saturday. Although the former Supreme Court Justice and essentially apolitical Wigneswaran was put up for the Chief Minister’s post in 2013 by the TNA’s troika comprising Sampanthan, Sumanthiran and Senathirajah, he began to act independently of the troika and even the TNA as a party. He also reportedly developed contradictions with the Northern Provincial Council (NPC) and its Chairman (or Speaker) C.V.K.Sivagnanam. There were also complaints of his playing favorites  within his four member Board of Ministers and of being guided by some “rank outsiders”.But what proved to be the last straw on the camel’s back was Wigneswaran’s declaration on the eve of the August 17, 2015 Lankan parliamentary elections that he would be “neutral.” He then went on to appeal to the voters to vote for persons of a particular kind which clearly suggested that he was asking them to the vote for the radical Tamil National Peoples’ Front (TNPF) whose leaders are  seen by moderates as being acolytes of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE). In his various statements as CM, Wigneswaran seemed to be plugging the radical line. He was functioning more as a political agitator than the head of an administration charged with the task of post-war developmental work.Matters came a head when Sumanthiran openly declared that the TNA will sack Wigneswaran for anti-party activities. Wigneswaran retorted saying that he is not a member of any political party to be sacked and that he won the Provincial Council elections with the highest number of preferential votes on his personal credentials rather than any party affiliation. Sinha urged the Chief Minister to get along with the TNA leadership comprising R.Sampanthan, M.A.Sumanthiran and Mavai Senathirajah.Wigneswaran admitted that there are ideological differences between the Jaffna-based leaders and the Colombo-based leaders of the TNA. His case was that the Tamil question looks different when viewed from different places. As a Jaffna-based leader, he has a perspective which is different from that of the Colombo-based leaders like Sumanthiran, Wigneswaran said. However, he assured that he is all for the unity of the TNA and that any internal differences will be ironed out through discussions. Wigneswaran recalled that Sumanthiran was his student in the Sri Lanka Law College and that there should be no difficulty in making up with his student. read more

Former Financial Regulator was paid €13000 in untaken holidays on retirement

first_imgPATRICK NEARY, THE Financial Regulator who retired in January 2009, has had his pension cut twice in the last number of years, but walked away with €84,000 upon his retirement.The details of Neary’s pension has previously been disclosed as being €143,000 a year, but Finance Minister Michael Noonan revealed how much he had taken upon his retirement, which came just four months after the bank guarantee.In response to a Dáil question from Independent TD Patrick Nulty, Noonan said that Neary had been paid a salary of €84,501 on retirement. This included €47,550 owed to Neary because he was available to the Central Bank for three months after retirement.It also included €13,178 that Neary was owed in unpaid holiday leave entitlements, a common practice across the board.Noonan added that as Neary’s retirement allowed for the reintegration of the Irish Financial Services and Regulatory Authority with the Central Bank, he had been given a notional payment.“I am also informed that as the former Chief Executive, who had 2 years remaining on his contract, facilitated significant organisational change by his retirement, he received additional notional service and immediate pension payment without actuarial adjustment, consistent with the Central Bank Financial Services Authority of Ireland Superannuation Scheme rules. He also received a payment of €151,500, equivalent to six months remuneration in lieu of the time remaining on his contract. His retirement lump sum and pension was based on a final reckonable salary of €285,341 and 40 years reckonable service.The response concluded by saying that cuts to Neary’s pension had amounted to €24,000 a year.Nulty said that while not wishing to comment on individual circumstances, he felt it was “important that the pensions of those paid by taxpayers” were known.“I believe the problems were the result of light touch regulation. I do believe that such large pensions such be subject to taxation and further cuts.“Those with these lavish pensions who were at the wheel during one of the greatest banking collapses in the history of the world should contribute more through a levy on their pension puts.”Read: ‘My contract has been accepted by government’: Richie Boucher on his €843k salaryRead: Cut in private pension tax break could facilitate universal pension for all over 65slast_img read more

Cubelets means robotics without programming or soldering

first_imgOne of the coolest advances in recent years has been the consumerization of robotics. Whether it’s the Roomba or the Pleo, we’ve seen robots go from only being in movies and auto factories to becoming devices that can both help and entertain us. It’s an important trend in technology, and it’s all made possible because of the simplification of robotics and, more importantly, the simplification of how we interact with these products. Cubelets are a great example of this and they are something that I’m excited to get my hands on.The Cubelets are a sort of robot construction kit that are the commercial form of Carnegie Mellon Computational Design Lab’s roBlocks project. The Cubelets are a modular robotics system in which different cubes have different functions, all of which can work together when combined. For example, pair a drive block with a temperature block, and you can have a robot that drives away from a heat source. There are 15 block types in all, with more under development. The standard Cubelets kit sells for $160 and include six blocks: Drive and Flashlight for action, Brightness and Distance as sensors, then Battery and Passive as utility blocks. Buyers interested in making a larger investment can buy the 20-block KT01 kit which goes for $520. The other block varieties will sell for $25 — only the $35 Battery block and the $32 Distance block are more. The other block flavors are diverse and interesting, including a Bar Graph block, which has an LED indicator gauge on the side and is used for debugging. The video below makes it pretty clear how Cubelets works — the modular blocks fit together and if the combination makes any sense you’ll get a robot that does just what you intend. Combine a Distance block with a Rotate block, and and infrared light will measure distance and cause the robot to drive in circles when something gets close. Combine the Flashlight and Knob blocks and you’ll get a Flashlight you can control the intensity of. Of course, all robot builds need the Battery block to be included to power the array of cubes. Keep in mind, the Cubelets are based on distributed programming, so one block is not the CPU while another is just a passive observer. They are working together and each has its own microcontroller, so they work together and have a sense of situational awareness that will vary their functions based on what blocks they are connected to. The Cubelets Starting Guide has an excellent explanation available. So, you sold yet? The Cubelets aren’t cheap, but they seem like a great toy. My biggest fear actually is just that — that they are just something fun to tinker with and not anything I can take to another level. Eventually they will work with a programming language, but it’s not out yet. Until then it’s just about creating fun bots out of clever combinations, with the main limitation being the price of the blocks. Cubelets via notcotlast_img read more

The UN wants to connect every adult in the world by 2030

first_img Comment 1 How to solve the rural broadband problem? Fix the maps Internet activism Artificial intelligence (AI) Now playing: Watch this: Share your voice Guterres, who commissioned the report, was pleased with its recommendations.”This report will be a fantastic instrument … to start a serious discussion worldwide how we can transform the digital era… for everybody,” he said. Internet Security Tags A UN panel recommends bringing internet access to marginalized communities.  Gawrav Sinha / Getty Images At a time when countries are feuding over tariffs and trade agreements, Melinda Gates and Alibaba CEO Jack Ma feel optimistic that international cooperation will bridge the digital divide. The hope is that global collaboration will help connect every adult to a “digital network” by 2030.The lofty goal is part of the United Nations’ The Age of Digital Interdependence Report, released Monday. Gates, who runs the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation with her husband, Ma and UN Secretary-General António Guterres discussed the findings from the report during a panel session on Monday. The report’s release comes at a time when issues of data privacy and the hostilities between the US and China permeate the headlines. Despite talks of recent data leaks, the 5G race and artificial intelligence, the UN panel brought specific attention to the less-discussed fact that internet access still isn’t available to half the world. Both Gates and Ma spent much of their time talking about internet inclusivity. They mentioned that internet connection is key to ensuring the underprivileged can participate in a global economy. Internet access would allow farmers and small-scale entrepreneurs to access outside buyers. For instance, sellers in rural communities could also search up real-time market data to competitively price their products.”Developing countries and marginalized communities must have a voice in deciding how these technologies are used,” Gates said. “That’s how we can guarantee that, instead of reinforcing old problems, digital technologies are a source of new solutions.”While Gates also touched on how access to the internet and the possibility of participating in a marketplace can empower marginalized women, Ma explained how the internet allows those in developing nations to sell in other well-established markets. “Today, if you don’t let your people connect to the internet, it is worse then if you don’t let people connect to electricity,” said Ma. In an era where fears of job loss are exacerbated by the emergence of artificial intelligence, the panelists also touched on their expectations for the autonomous technology. Companies should make sure their AI technology follows both engineering and ethical standards, the panelists stated in the report. “Audits and certification schemes should monitor compliance of artificial intelligence systems with engineering and ethical standards, which should be developed using multi-stakeholder and multilateral approaches,” said the panelists in the report. 5:13last_img read more

Green Party has not decided who to back in presidential elections

first_imgThe Green party has not formally decided who it will back in the 2018 presidential elections and people are wrong to believe it is a given that the party will back Diko leader Nicolas Papadopoulos, it said on Wednesday.Speaking to the Cyprus News Agency, Green Party leader Giorgos Perdikis said a decision would be made on June 18 when party members convene to collectively choose who they will back.“We are not going to take a decision in the absence of our members. We will hear what they have to say first.”Perdikis conceded there was a lack of interest from within the party, probably stemming from the developments surrounding Cyprus talks and the Geneva conference set to take place on June 28, he said.Any impressions that the Green Party has already concluded they will be backing Papadopoulos are mistaken and it is not a given, Perdikis told CNA.At least two thirds of the party will have to be present for a decision to be made, he specified.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
