A First Nations lawsuit alleges that government inaction is at least partly to blame for a Husky Energy oil spill that fouled water supplies for tens of thousands of people along the North Saskatchewan River last summer.A statement of claim filed Thursday by the James Smith band in Melfort, Sask., against the provincial and federal governments says Saskatchewan ignored pipeline safety recommendations from its own auditor general made four years before the accident.“The report concluded that such failure to effectively regulate pipelines could result in foreseeable harm to people or to the environment, and made recommendations as to how the provincial Crown could take action to ensure compliance with its statutory requirements,” the document says.The lawsuit also claims the federal government failed to protect the band’s treaty rights.About 40 per cent of a 225,000-litre spill from the Husky (TSX:HSE) pipeline reached the river on July 20, 2016. The plume began near the Saskatchewan-Alberta boundary and spread hundreds of kilometres downstream.It forced the cities of Prince Albert, North Battleford and Melfort to shut off their water intakes for almost two months. Wildlife was also harmed.The band alleges there are remnants of the spill along the shores of the river. They say the spill has damaged habitat for wildlife, including animals hunted by band members and endangered species.Husky has said that more than 90 per cent of the oil has been recovered.The Saskatchewan government acknowledges small deposits of oil remain in woody debris along the banks, in vegetation and buried in sediment.Tests have found hydrocarbons do not exceed drinking water standards. Fish consumption is considered to be safe.The government said this week cleanup will end in August.The band charges the spill — caused when ground underneath a submerged section of pipe shifted — should never have happened.In 2012, the province’s auditor wrote: “The Ministry did not have effective processes to ensure full compliance with The Pipelines Act, 1998 and The Pipelines Regulations, 2000. There are requirements under this legislation that are not being acted upon.“Failure to regulate pipelines effectively could harm people or the environment.”The band alleges most of the auditor’s five recommendations were still unmet at the time of the spill.Last March, auditor Judy Ferguson repeated some of the 2012 concerns. She said in her annual report that the government still did not have written policies and procedures to evaluate existing pipelines.None of the band’s allegations has been proven in court.A provincial spokeswoman said this week that Husky’s repairs should make the site safer. The pipe now has thicker walls, and equipment has been installed to monitor water levels and ground movement as well as strain on the line.Husky remains in negotiations with the band over the spill.“We know this event had an impact on communities and First Nations downstream and we worked closely with all groups and regulators throughout on a co-ordinated response,” said company spokesman Mel Duvall. “From the outset we accepted full responsibility.“We continue to meet regularly with all stakeholders to build on those relationships and work on future business development opportunities.”Husky is being investigated and faces the possibility of federal and provincial charges.— Follow Bob Weber on Twitter at @row1960

“International statistics aside, we are all familiar with the fact that the national wealth of a number of countries was destroyed – in some instances, plainly stolen – by corrupt leaders, leaving future generations struggle in despair,” Antonio Maria Costa, Executive Director of the UN Office for Drug Control and Crime Prevention (ODCCP), said in an opening address to the Ad Hoc Committee for the Negotiation of a UN Convention against Corruption.”It is not surprising, therefore, that fighting corruption has become a priority in most countries,” he added. “It is a condition for good governance and rule of law, which in turn are the foundation of sustainable development.”The second session of the Ad Hoc Committee, which is scheduled to run until 28 June, is expected to finish the first reading of the draft text of the Convention. During its deliberations, the Committee will examine the issues of sanctions, confiscation, international cooperation, asset recovery, technical assistance, preventing the transfer of funds of illicit origin, and monitoring of the Convention.The Committee will also discuss other aspects of corruption, including protection for “whistle-blowers” and victims, compensation for damages, extradition, mutual legal assistance and bank secrecy.Meanwhile, a one-day technical workshop on asset recovery will take place during the session, going through a hypothetical case study involving the transfer of millions of dollars abroad by a former president who was forced from office. Participants will consider the difficulties of identifying the location of funds or assets of illicit origin and will look at issues relating to the return of such funds, such as how to identify the beneficiaries.At its first session earlier this year, the Committee made good progress on the first reading of the draft convention, covering issues such as whether the convention would contain a standard definition of “public official,” or leave it to national law, how to define corruption and whether the new pact would cover private sector corruption.
“I am appalled at reports that Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia have been pushing boats full of vulnerable migrants back out to sea, which will inevitably lead to many avoidable deaths,” said UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein in a statement released today. “The focus should be on saving lives, not further endangering them.”While Mr. Zeid praised Indonesia for disembarking 582 migrants on 10 May, and Malaysia for disembarking 1,018 the following day, he said the “incomprehensible and inhumane” policy of “pushbacks” was endangering lives. He also spoke against countries’ plans to criminalize vulnerable migrants and asylum seekers who have crossed borders irregularly.“Governments in South-East Asia need to respond to this crisis from the premise that migrants, regardless of their legal status, how they arrive at borders, or where they come from, are people with rights that must be upheld,” he said. “Criminalizing such vulnerable people, including children, and placing them in detention is not the solution.”Around 6,000 Rohingya and Bangladeshi migrants are believed to remain stranded at sea in precarious conditions in the region and the High Commissioner said the individual circumstances of all migrants and asylum seekers at international borders should be assessed, and appropriate protection provided according to international human rights and refugee law, including ensuring that the principle of non-refoulement is upheld.He called for further action against traffickers and abusive smugglers and welcomed the announcement that Thailand would host a regional meeting on irregular migration in the Indian Ocean on 29 May. In discussions on comprehensive responses, the regional meeting would seek to address root causes, one of which, he said, was the importance of addressing the serious human rights situation in Rakhine state, in Myanmar.“Until the Myanmar Government addresses the institutional discrimination against the Rohingya population, including equal access to citizenship, this precarious migration will continue,” he said. “Whether fleeing persecution, discrimination, poverty or other human rights violations, or moving in search of decent work and a life with dignity, all migrants who take to the seas in such perilous circumstances are in need of protection.”A coherent, human rights-based regional response was urgently needed and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) could play a leadership role in that regard.“I urge the participating governments to ensure that their responses are based on international human rights and refugee law,” Mr. Zeid said. “This is a complex and multi-dimensional issue requiring a holistic response, which will include stepped-up search and rescue efforts, the timely and safe disembarkation of migrants in distress, and access to appropriate human rights protection safeguards. Dangerous interception practices, including pushing back boats that are trying to land, must be scrupulously avoided.” A statement released by the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) pointed out the obligations held by Southeast Asian countries under the Convention on the Rights of the Child, which all those States had ratified. “Any action that may impact on children must be guided by the best interests of those children, no matter who they are and where they come from,” the statement said. “The [Convention] requires governments to ensure all children are cared for in a safe place, with access to education, health, social and legal services, irrespective of their refugee or migrant status.”Article 22 of that Convention demands that Governments ensure protection and humanitarian assistance for children seeking refugee status and UNICEF’s statement stressed the increased vulnerabilities faced by child migrants. “Children should not be criminalised or subject to punitive measures solely because of their migration status, nor should they be detained for purposes of migration control,” said the statement. “All actions in regard to child migrants must be guided by the best interests of every one of these children, every step of the way.”Last year, the number of people leaving Myanmar and Bangladesh by boat is estimated to have climbed to around 53,000. Some 920 migrants are known to have perished in the Bay of Bengal between September 2014 and March this year. They have been predominantly Rohingya fleeing persecution from Rakhine State in Myanmar, with increasing numbers of impoverished Bangladeshi migrants taking to the seas over the last year.
In a unanimously adopted resolution at a session presided over by Treasury Secretary Jack Lew of the United States, which holds its monthly presidency, the 15-member body called for enhanced actions, from closing financial system loopholes to stopping the abuse of charitable causes, as well as updating the existing ISIL and Al-Qaida Sanctions List.It stressed that already existing resolutions mandating States to ensure that financial assets are not transferred to terrorists by persons within their territory “shall also apply to the payment of ransoms to individuals, groups, undertakings or entities on the ISIL [Da’esh] and Al-Qaida Sanctions List regardless of how or by whom the ransom is paid.”The resolution called for increased international cooperation in sharing information and closer collaboration with the private sector to identify suspect transactions.The Council also called on Member States to promote enhanced vigilance by persons within their jurisdiction to detect any diversion of explosives and raw materials and components that can be used to manufacture improvised explosive devices or unconventional weapons, including chemical components, detonators, detonating cord, or poisons.“They (the terrorists) are agile and have been far too successful in attaining resources for their heinous acts,” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told the Council at the start of the debate. “As Da’esh (another name for ISIL) and other terrorist groups disseminate their hateful propaganda and ratchet up murderous attacks, we must join forces to prevent them from acquiring and deploying resources to do further harm,” he stressed.“We know the challenge before us. Terrorists take advantage of weaknesses in financial and regulatory regimes to raise funds. They circumvent formal channels to avoid detection, and exploit new technologies and tools to transfer resources. They have forged destructive and very profitable links with drug and criminal syndicates – among others. And they abuse charitable causes to trick individuals to contribute,” said the UN chief.He noted that progress has been made over the years in identifying and limiting various methods of terrorist financing, with Member States ratifying the International Convention on the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism and adopting legislation to criminalize terrorist financing and strengthen regulatory systems.“Still, more needs to be done,” Mr. Ban stated. “Terrorists continue to adapt their tactics and diversify their funding sources. Today, Da’esh runs a multi-million dollar economy in territories under its control. Da’esh terrorists raise money through the oil trade, extortion, undetected cash couriers, kidnapping for ransom, trafficking of humans and arms and racketeering,” he said. “They loot and sell precious cultural property, shamelessly profiting from the destruction of humanity’s common heritage. Social media outreach is exploited by Da’esh, not just for radicalization and recruiting, but also for fundraising. Other terrorist organizations around the world – from Boko Haram to Al-Shabaab to the Taliban – are following suit.”With terrorists increasingly employing elusive tricks to raise and transfer funds, covering their tracks and leaving little evidence to identify tainted resources, the international community must stay ahead of the curve to combat their ploys, he said, noting that many States have yet to set up the necessary legal regimes and institutions to identify and freeze terrorist assets. Mr. Ban called for increased international cooperation in sharing information and expertise, especially in stopping the illegal trade of cultural artefacts, and closer cooperation with the private and charitable sectors to identify suspected transactions.
A new Sandvik solution for optimising underground truck loads, the Integrated Weighing System (IWS), supports productivity by offering accurate real-time payload data for load and haul equipment operators. “Using the IWS ensures full utilisation of the truck’s payload capacity, every cycle.”The Sandvik Integrated Weighing System IWS is described as an excellent tool for monitoring efficiency, planning operations and improving fleet performance. The IWS enables the truck operator to monitor the truck payload in real time, already at the loading point. During loading, the truck operator can see on the system screen the exact weight of the rock material in the box. Simultaneously, the loader operator is guided with “traffic lights” on top of the truck, indicating if there is still free capacity left, or if the optimal load is reached.These features help to achieve a full truck load every cycle, avoiding under or over load, all resulting in more efficient operations and maintenance benefits. At the other end, the IWS helps to ensure that the box is empty, and thus minimise carry-back. The log files that the IWS creates, can be transferred through My Sandvik Digital Services Knowledge Box for further analyses, or extracted into a USB stick.“Utilising the full capacity of the truck, every cycle, has an enormous effect on total efficiency of the mine operations. Without the IWS, even a small drop in payload can result in a significant loss of shift production,” says Wayne Scrivens, VP Product Line Load and Haul, Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology. “From the equipment technical point of view, what makes the Sandvik IWS special is that the system is truly integrated into the equipment control system: no need for adding on any wires, sensors or other components; IWS is an integral part of the intelligence,” he continues.The IWS is an option that is currently available for Sandvik truck models Sandvik TH430, Sandvik TH545i, Sandvik TH551i, and Sandvik TH663i. Also retrofitting to other models is possible.
It’s not uncommon to see a retailer accidentally leak a video game launch date as they typically know first so as to have stock and marketing ready. But it’s the official Xbox blog that seems to have leaked the launch date for Battlefield 4.The game was revealed last week alongside a 17 minute gameplay video, and Xbox.com gave it coverage on March 27. But whoever wrote the post messed up and included the following sentence:Battlefield 4 will arrive on the Xbox 360 on October 29, 2013.It didn’t take long for the mistake to be noticed by Microsoft and the sentence changed to just read “is coming to the Xbox 360.” But the damage had been done and someone on the Internet always clocks these things.So unless EA and Dice claim otherwise, you can expect to be playing Battlefield 4 on October 29. Whether it hits Xbox 360 first is unknown, but maybe Microsoft has negotiated an exclusive release deal for a week or two?That release date is going to bring the release of the game very close to when PlayStation 4 and probably the Xbox 720 also hit store shelves. It’s likely the game will appear for both next-gen platforms, and I’m sure Microsoft and Sony would love to have it as a launch title.At the same time, gamers will remain skeptical as to whether this is going to be another SimCity, as the wording EA used in the press release announcing the game suggested Battlefield 4 is another always connected title.Now read: Battlefield 4 screenshots have us more than a little excited
Nov 29th 2016, 8:08 PM Irish woman waiting to hear about extradition to US is on suicide watch The mother-of-one is wanted by US authorities in connection with an alleged multi-million euro steroid distribution enterprise. Tuesday 29 Nov 2016, 8:08 PM Image: Shutterstock/Billion Photos No Comments AN IRISH WOMAN wanted by US authorities in connection with an alleged multi-million euro steroid distribution enterprise must wait to hear whether she will be extradited to America.The mother-of-one, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is currently on suicide watch in custody, the High Court heard today.As a result, she is not allowed contact with her child, who her lawyers have argued will be at “serious risk” were she to be extradited.She had previously been the subject of extradition proceedings in the UK. However, she was arrested in Ireland last year after she failed to hand herself over to American officials.Her barrister, Anne-Marie Lawlor BL, told the High Court there wasn’t an issue of the woman seeking “safe haven” in Ireland, her place of birth.Approximately 19 months after the UK’s decision, the factual scenario had “completely changed”, Lawlor said, owing to her mental health and the court had to consider afresh the circumstances in which the woman found herself in.Lawlor said the woman had “lived for” the hour-long contact she used to have with her child while in custody.Counsel for the Attorney General, Robert Barron SC, said the question of whether her child will be psychologically damaged by extradition was “uncertain” and the claim the child would be in serious harm was “not made out”.Child For the last nine months, Barron said, the child was living in a stable family relationship with her uncle and aunt and there was no information regarding the involvement of the Child and Family Agency.Therefore, the foundation of her article eight claim – the right to respect for private and family life – was not made out, Barron submitted. He said there was no medical evidence regarding the “pros and cons” of restricting family access to her while she was on “suicide watch”.It could be in her best interests at the moment to not have contact with her family, Barron said. “We simply don’t know”. Barron said the UK courts, which had previously ordered her extradition, used the same law, had much the same information and applied much the same legal tests.Justice Aileen Donnelly said she would reserve judgment.The US authorities allege that the woman was part of a criminal organisation and that she willingly joined it. She is charged with conspiracy to manufacture and possess with intent to distribute anabolic steroids, distributing human growth hormone, importation of substances into the United States and charges related to money laundering.If convicted in America, she faces a maximum sentence of 20 years imprisonment on one of the charges.Comments are closed for legal reasons.Read: Simon Harris writes to other health ministers in bid to reduce cost of CF drugRead: Visiting restrictions at Mercy University Hospital due to winter vomiting outbreak http://jrnl.ie/3110177 Short URL 15,928 Views Image: Shutterstock/Billion Photos By Ruaidhrí Giblin Share3 Tweet Email Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article

The name of Sharon Tate is once again making headlines with the release of the much-talked-about film directed by Quentin Tarantino, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which takes place in 1969, and concerns itself with the events surrounding her unhappy end. But for those who knew and loved her best, Sharon has always been much more than a victim of Charles Manson. Her talent, beauty, kindness, and warmth made an impact that lasts to this day. Born on January 24, 1943, Sharon was part of a tight-knit family, the first-born child of Doris Willett and Paul Tate, who was a colonel in Army Intelligence. She was exquisite from the beginning. By the time Sharon was six months old, she had won her first beauty contest: Miss Tiny Tot of Dallas Texas.Sharon Tate in 1967Because of her father’s position, the family moved around quite a bit. In 1952, Sharon’s sister, Debra, was born, followed five years later by Patti. Sharon continued to win beauty contests. One day while out walking, Sharon was approached by a choreographer for a Pat Boone special. She was serenaded by Boone, while her parents hovered nearby. Colonel Tate was reassigned to Italy in 1962 and Sharon would begin attending Vincenza American High School, where she was a star on the cheerleading squad.While in Italy, Sharon met actor Richard Beymer on a film set. Beymer encouraged her to pursue acting and modeling and gave her the card of his agent Hal Gefsky.Sharon Tate in 1969When Colonel Tate was transferred back to the States, Sharon went to see Gefsky. He would say “she was so young and beautiful that I didn’t know what to do with her.” Nonetheless, she quickly got modeling assignments and was signed by producer Martin Ransohoff, chairman of Filmways. Sharon was given a small reoccurring role on a The Beverly Hillbillies and she also had small parts in other television shows such as Mr. Ed, Man from U.N.C.L.E and was cast for a short period on Petticoat Junction. So certain was Ransohoff that Sharon would be successful, he spent over a million dollars in her training and preparation.Sharon Tate from the trailer for the film Eye of the Devil (1967)Meanwhile, Sharon had met and begun dating Hollywood hair stylist Jay Sebring. Writer Dominick Dunne remembers meeting Sharon there and that Sharon was “simply one of the most beautiful and nicest girls” he ever met. She won a part in the movie Odile, a strange country girl with hypnotic powers. In 1966 Martin Ransohoff was producing a movie to be directed by acclaimed Polish director Roman Polanski. She played Sarah, a girl that charms both the vampire who abducts her and takes her to his castle, and the professors’ assistant- who would be played by Polanski.Sharon Tate’s signature. Photo by Aucun auteur CC BY-SA 4.0While making the film, Sharon and Polanski became romantically involved and she split with Jay Sebring. Shooting wrapped on The Fearless Vampire Killers and Sharon had to fly back to the United States to film a beach comedy starring Tony Curtis and Claudia Cardinale, Don’t Make Waves. She followed that with the big hit The Valley of the Dolls, based on a novel by Jacqueline Susann. Her part was of a beautiful showgirl who marries for love, loses her career, and when faced with a cancer diagnosis, does herself in. The Hollywood Reporter said of Sharon, “William Daniels’ photographic caress of her faultless face and enormous absorbent eyes is stunning.”Roman Polanski and Sharon Tate at their London wedding. (Photo by Evening Standard/Getty Images)In January 1968, Sharon was married to Roman Polanski in London, in a wedding dress considered the height of 1960s fashion. Among the guests were Michael Caine and Joan Collins. Though Sharon was now married to one of the most acclaimed directors of the era, she was determined to make it on her own. Her next film was an action/comedy The Wrecking Crew with Dean Martin. It was the fourth in a series of Matt Helm special agent pictures. Sharon would play Freya Carlson, Martin’s bumbling alley, posing as his Danish tour guide. A critic said, “Sharon Tate reveals a pleasant affinity to scatterbrain comedy and comes as close to walking away with this picture as she did in a radically different role in Valley of the Dolls.”Related Video: Watch the Trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s New Movie Exploring what Happened to Sharon TateSharon had many close friends in the Hollywood community. Mia Farrow would say, “There was the perfection of her face-of course. And a radiance more usually found in children. There was a capacity for delight. And a directness to her comments. She was not a chatterbox. There was a kindness at the core. She somehow made her friends feel necessary-and they loved her.”Related Article: The London Wedding of Roman Polanski and Sharon TateIn late 1968 Sharon learned she was pregnant. She and Polanski wanted a larger house and they found one at 10050 Cielo Drive. The previous tenants had been Terry Melcher, son of Doris Day and Al Jorden. The Polanskis moved there in February 1969. Sharon called the home her “love house.” As fate would have it, it would be in that same house, not long after, that Charles Manson and his “family” would shatter their lives forever.
3 min read September 29, 2015 This story originally appeared on Engadget Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Microsoft famously accused Google of “Scroogling” users by selling their private data to advertisers. But when it launched Windows 10, Microsoft was itself roundly criticized for over-zealous personal data collection. Critics say it does things like send parents reports of their kids’ PC use, prevent users from opting out of certain types of data collection, and scan PCs for counterfeit software. The software giant has responded to those accusations in a Windows blog post, saying that it only collects data that makes its products work better and that it gives users control over information collected.Microsoft started by addressing the “telemetry data” it collects when Windows or an app crashes. Company VP Terry Myerson explained that such info “help(s) us provide a secure and reliable experience,” and that it “doesn’t include any of your content or files, and we take several steps to avoid collecting any information that directly identifies you.” He added that the practice has already paid off, helping a Microsoft partner fix a faulty graphics driver within 24 hours.As for personal data, Microsoft says that it only collects it to “deliver a delightful and personalized Windows experience,” to give you updates on scores for your favorite team, for instance. Additional data is collected for features like Cortana because of its nature as a personal assistant. However, Myerson pointed out that you can opt out of collection of speech, typing, location and other activities.Finally, Redmond insists that “neither Windows 10 nor any other Microsoft software scans the contents of your email or other communications, or your files, in order to deliver targeted advertising.” In other words, Microsoft doesn’t use Outlook to create targeted advertising, unlike Google’s Gmail. As Ars Technica points out, however, the wording seems to indicate that Microsoft reserves the right to collect advertising data via other apps like Bing and Cortana.So what to make of this? Many of the original accusations were false: MIcrosoft doesn’t send your personal files to its servers like torrent sites claim, for instance. Also, it’s not new that Microsoft sends parents reports on their kids’ surfing activities — that feature was also available in Windows 8. However, Microsoft promised that it’ll update its policies to take your children’s ages into account.As for the collection of crash data, Microsoft didn’t address the actual complaint; namely that Windows 10 users can’t opt out of telemetry, unlike with previous versions (unless they’re a Windows 10 Enterprise licensee). You can, however, adjust the setting from full (the default) to basic, so that you transmit less data to Microsoft. And while the company collects unique user IDs after a crash, it only does so to determine how many users are experiencing an issue. Would it be good to be able to completely opt out of telemetry? Sure! Would you trade that for a potentially more unstable operating environment? Probably not!Microsoft concluded by saying it’s listening to users’ privacy concerns, and will update its policies if need be. That’s a good start — they probably don’t bother most users, but it needs to better communicate the hows and whys of them. It would do well to keep the dialogue going, especially considering Google’s ongoing problems in privacy-mad Europe. Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Register Now »

The extreme weather conditions this winter have driven the price of fruit and vegetables up, meaning this year’s Green Monday table will be significantly more expensive than that of 2018.According to head of the association of fruit market owners Polys Katashis, calculations of prices show a notable rise this year though some may change by Monday, March 11 when the day will be celebrated.Due to constant hailstorms, as well as the high levels of snow and frost in the mountains, whole crops have been destroyed, leading to a decrease in the availability of some products on the market and the consequent hike in prices, Katashis said.At the same time however, the association has observed that some have taken advantage of the situation by overinflating their prices.Compared to 2018, tomatoes this year have risen from €1.50 per kilo to €2.30; greenhouse cucumbers from €1.20 per kilo to €2.80; and field-grown cucumbers from €2.50 to €3.50.In 2018, green peas and beans cost €3.50, but are this year being sold at €5 per kilo.From 60 cents last year, broccoli per kilo today sells at €2.60, while courgette prices spiralled from 50 cents to €2-2.50 per kilo, depending on the kind.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoNovelodgeThe One WD40 Trick Everyone Should Know AboutNovelodgeUndo Cruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboola
