Family of Brian Sinclair pull out of inquest so do Aboriginal organizations

first_imgAPTN National NewsThe family of Brian Sinclair and multiple Aboriginal organizations have withdrew from an inquest into the Aboriginal man’s death because the courts have refused to address “systemic racism” in the Manitoba healthcare system according a statement released Tuesday.Sinclair’s family said they’ll sit out “Phase 2” as they have lost confidence in the process, but will still submit closing submissions.While, Aboriginal Legal Services of Toronto and Ka Ni Kanichihk both said Tuesday they will no longer be part of the inquest at all according to a statement issued by ALST.“ALST did not make this decision lightly. ALST got involved in this case because we thought it was important to provide an Aboriginal perspective and to share expertise about the experiences of Aboriginal patients to address best practices for providing care to our community. Unfortunately the inquest is now focused on patient flow,” said Christa Big Canoe, legal advocacy director of ALST.Sinclair, 45, died in a Manitoba hospital waiting room after being ignored for 34 hours in September 2008.The Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs are also expected to pull out of the inquest that begins the second phase Tuesday.Big Canoe said witnesses have testified that staff at the Health Sciences Center assumed Sinclair was intoxicated and homeless.Nurses testified they didn’t see Sinclair but video evidence shows them walking by the dying man sitting in a wheelchair.To prevent similar deaths from happening Judge Raymond Wyant ruled in 2009 that racism, poverty and disability would play a large role in the inquest.Big Canoe said that changed last month when the presiding judge on the inquest made a ruling that “significantly narrowed the scope of the next phase of the inquest” by determining one witness would be address Aboriginal peoples in the Manitoba health care read more

Algeria desperately needs change The Economist

first_imgBordeaux – British magazine The Economist stated Algeria is in “desperate need of change in an article posted on Friday.”According to the magazine, Algerians are eager for change from their leaders, but afraid to ask for it. Many of them complain about the “lamentable lack of development” in the country and the frustration is wide-spread since the population does not benefit from the money generated by oil exports. Indeed, the unemployment rate remains exceptionally high, affecting almost 40 percent of the population, according to the same source.The young generation is desperate to leave the country. The Economist estimates most of the country’s 1.5 million students will struggle to find a job. Corruption is also weighing on the population who sees the richest families get away with fraud while they struggle to make ends meet. According to the same source, Algerians realize their opinion is not taken into account. When President Abdelaziz Bouteflika went to France between April and July to get treatment after his stroke, the civil society thought he was done and would never come back to the political scene. He did, however, come back and tightened security, granting even more powers to the army.If the population does suffer from the situation, Algerians seem wary of demanding change too loudly, even after seeing the political awakening across the Arab world in the past three years.According to the magazine, Algerians are grateful to Mr. Bouteflika for restoring calm to Algeria after the black decade of the 1990s. It states the media have become pretty free and the political space has slightly widened. It must be remembered, however, that the opposition, because of the great number of parties, is too weak to force the changes the population yearns for.The Economist’s analysis of the situation is that Algerians remain patient and wait for the ageing leaders to retire. Eventually, a new generation will come to power, loosen up politics and the economy, and bring in a more genuine multiparty system.© Morocco World News. All Rights Reserved.

India could have saved Lankan lives

Strong and early objections by the Indian government to the Sri Lankan government’s conduct of the war might have saved civilian lives, Human Rights Watch said.Meenakshi Ganguly, the South Asia director at Human Rights Watch said that in Sri Lanka, India chose private diplomacy to address concerns about risks to civilians during the brutal conclusion to the fighting between the military and the LTTE. However she says after several years of ‘quiet diplomacy’ which had no impact, India joined others at the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) to call for accountability for war crimes committed by both the government and the LTTE. A United Nations Panel of Experts report found that 40,000 civilians may have died in the last months of the war, largely from indiscriminate government shelling. It has supported Human Rights Council resolutions on Sri Lanka in 2012 and 2013.Gangul recalls that in his 2013 statement in support of the resolution, the Indian envoy at the UNHRC noted “the inadequate progress by Sri Lanka,” and called “for an independent and credible investigation into allegations of human rights violations and loss of civilian lives.” read more

Garages and refuse plants wrongly designated green belt land MP warns

Garages, wasteland and refuse plants are being wrongly designated “green belt” land, a Labour MP has warned. She argues that if such land was developed, it would go some way towards solving the housing crisis as well as preserving areas of natural beauty. “In Durham, there… “There’s a garage site a stone’s throw away from Tottenham Hale Station in London that is designated as green belt, but there is not a blade of grass to be seen,” she said. Siobhain McDonagh, MP for Morden, has found multiple examples of scrappy wasteland sitting empty and unused within minutes of the nation’s busiest railway stations. “In fact, apart from a green car parked in the garage, there is no green to be seen anywhere. read more

Iranian judge summons Facebooks Mark Zuckerberg over privacy complaints

first_imgA JUDGE IN southern Iran has ordered Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg to appear court to answer complaints by individuals who say Facebook-owned applications Instagram and Whatsapp violate their privacy, news agency ISNA has reported.It quoted Ruhollah Momen Nasab, an official with the paramilitary Basij force, as saying that the judge also ordered the two apps blocked.It is highly unlikely that Zuckerberg would appear in an Iranian court since there is no extradition treaty between Iran and the United States.Some Iranian courts have in recent years issued similar rulings that could not be carried out.Another Iranian court last week had ordered Instagram blocked over privacy concerns. However, users in the capital, Tehran, still could access both applications around noon Tuesday. In Iran, websites and Internet applications have sometimes been reported blocked but remained operational.Facebook is already banned in the country, along with other social websites like Twitter and YouTube. However some senior leaders like Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif are active on Twitter.While top officials have unfettered access to social media, Iran’s youth and technological-savvy citizens use proxy servers or other workarounds to bypass the controls.The administration of moderate President Hassan Rouhani is opposed to blocking such websites before authorities create local alternatives. Social media has offered a new way for him and his administration to reach out to the West as it negotiates with world powers over the country’s contested nuclear program.“We should see the cyber world as an opportunity,” Rouhani said last week, according to the official IRNA news agency. “Why are we so shaky? Why don’t we trust our youth?”Hard-liners, meanwhile, accuse Rouhani of failing to stop the spread of what they deem as “decadent” Western culture in Iran.Read: Facebook to offer its 1.28 billion users a privacy check-up >last_img read more

My boyfriends gambling I loved two people One was a compulsive liar

first_img Share Tweet Email12 Saturday 18 Mar 2017, 7:30 PM Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Short URL Mar 18th 2017, 7:30 PM 33 Comments By Anonymouscenter_img Anonymous I WRITE THIS as the Cheltenham races are on and while people chat about odds. But I am immediately transported back to a state of anxiety. I think of my ex boyfriend and get upset at the thoughts that he is most likely gambling on the races.It brings me back to driving him to work this time last year, with ads on the radio encouraging betting. My stomach used to sink as the elephant in the room grew and grew, and I longed for a day where gambling addiction didn’t ruin a pleasant car journey.I play out various scenarios in my head of how he is coping these days, each ending with a state of unknown. We no longer speak.That’s the reality of ending a relationship with someone who has a gambling addiction. I spent three years of my life all consumed by him. Now I no longer know if he is dead or alive. It may seem drastic but the high rate of suicide in addiction is a reality I have to acknowledge.Love’s price was too highI met my boyfriend and fell in love, but loving him came with a price. I did not understand gambling addiction and I was naive in thinking that the addiction was present within the four walls of a bookies or a screen.What I would soon come to realise is that gambling addiction comes with a wide range of behaviours and the act of placing the bet is only the beginning.I felt like I loved two people. One of whom was kind, hilarious, intelligent, charming, gentle and caring. The other a compulsive liar, manipulative, disrespectful and emotionally unavailable. Source: Shutterstock/REDPIXEL.PLThere were days when I would be with the love of my life, we would laugh to the point of tears and plan our future, completely oblivious before hitting reality with a bang. He would go missing for days on end, having gambled money that was his, mine or stolen.I would call his phone hundreds of times and drive around searching for him. Eventually, he would show up, engulfed in the shame and guilt that follows the original high of gambling.Sometimes I would hug him in tears, begging him to get help. Other days I would be so angry that here we were yet again, money gone, lies told, relationship destroyed.I began to isolate myselfI began to isolate myself as the only time I knew he was okay was when he was with me. My world quickly revolved around him, something that was not healthy for me. I didn’t tell anyone about his addiction for more than a year and to this day only a handful of people know.When he stole from work I had no choice but to tell my parents as he continuously rang me in desperation to replace the money. Why am I being put in this position I asked, yet if I don’t help him he will be arrested. He knew that I would have this dilemma, and the manipulative gambling addict I referred to earlier used this to his advantage.I eventually decided I needed support and began attending counselling. My whole life had become consumed by gambling addiction and I finally had a safe space where I could decide to end the relationship after years of failed interventions.A safe space to make the most heartbreaking decision to leave someone I loved in the hope that it would be a trigger for recovery. I also had to acknowledge to myself that the relationship was not healthy.I wanted him without the addictionAll I wanted was him without the addiction, however the sad reality is there is no choice in addiction. There were rare, beautiful moments when I felt like it was just us, and that I was the luckiest person in the world to have met someone so special. But addiction was always in the room.It hasn’t been clear cut, he made every promise under the sun to get better before admitting defeat and telling me that I’m better off without him. I felt like a mouse when a cat has just caught it, letting it go and reeling it back in repeatedly. Just when I felt I was keeping my head above water I used to get reeled back in, believing with every bone in my body that we could have a life together, free from gambling.To my ex-boyfriend and best friend, I want to give you a quote from John O’Donoghue, like my mum gave to me when our relationship crumbled: “And so may a slow wind work these words of love around you, an invisible cloak to mind your life.”The author of this piece has requested to remain anonymous. Support groups such as Gamblers Anonymous are available if you need to talk to someone.Aodhán Ó Ríordáin: ‘It’s time Irish people stood up against racism. We were the terrorists at one time’>‘Syrians are increasingly likely to opt for a strongman like Assad, capable of bringing stability’> 11,764 Views My boyfriend’s gambling: ‘I loved two people.

After WifeKidnapping Scam Targeted Kenai Families DPS Says Verify And Report

first_imgDepartment of Public Safety Communications Director Johnathon Taylor says the first step for people if they receive a call like this is to verify what the caller is saying. The scams reported, in which the caller contacted close family members of one Kenai woman and threatened sexual assault and death to her if a ransom was not met, have been experienced across Alaska this year. DPS Comm Dir. Taylor: “Individuals who are utilizing these types of scams are often trained to prey on the feeling of helplessness and concern and panic that people have and can convince people to do things that they would not otherwise do. So first is to verify, to try and see whether or not it’s suspicious.” DPS Comm Dir. Taylor: “If the scammers are not actually calling from the state of Alaska, the Alaska State Troopers or local police departments might not actually have jurisdiction. So reporting it to the FBI is always the first step. If folks do want to contact the local law enforcement agency, whether that’s our local police department or Troopers and let them know, they can absolutely do that.” Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享After a scam targeted multiple Kenai Peninsula families this weekend, the Department of Public Safety is telling community members to verify first and then report the scam activity to authorities. Taylor says if families are or have been targeted in this sort of scam, the best step after verification that your family is safe is to report the incident to the FBI through their Internet Crime Complaint Center. The Kenai woman did report her incident to the FBI. Communications Director Staci Feger-Pellessier in the FBI’s  Anchorage Office says they are looking into the incident.last_img read more

Corruption can be stamped out only if politicians want

first_imgDiscussants at the seminar styled ‘Accountable administration a key to prevent corruption’ organised by Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) held at its office in the capital Photo Courtesy : ACCA group of anti-corruption activist, academic and politician on Sunday observed that corruption can be stamped out in the country only if the politicians want it.Addressing a seminar styled ‘Accountable administration a key to prevent corruption’ organised by Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) at its office, they also said corruption takes place in collusion between the politicians and the bureaucrats. Former rector of Bangladesh Public Administration Training Centre (BPATC) AZM Shafiqul Alam presented the keynote speech in the seminar in which he underscored the need for ensuring accountability in the administration to prevent corruption.Outlining various types of corruption, the keynote speaker said, “Apart from ensuring accountability in the administration, the accountability of the ACC officials and democratic accountability should be ensured.”He also alleged that large-scale corruption takes place at the behest of political patronisation or at the behest of the top policymakers and political parties’ deviation from ideology is the primary reason behind the political corruption.Speaking as the chief guest, former advisor of a past caretaker government professor Jamilur Reza Choudhury said, “Corruption can never be stopped if we can’t break unholy nexus between the politicians and the bureaucrats.”He also asked ACC officials to take stringent actions against the corrupt people. Another former advisor of a caretaker government M Hafiz Uddin Khan said there should be a transparent policy regarding recruitment, training, transfer, posting and promotion in the public service to ensure accountability in the administration.Citizens’ for Good Governance secretary Badiul Alam Majumder was of the opinion that ACC should give priority to controlling electoral corruption.“The wealth of many politicians swells once they are elected,” said Badiul Alam adding, “ACC will be deemed to be a dysfunctional organisation if it fails to take actions against large-scale corruption.”While presiding over the seminar, ACC chairman Iqbal Mahmud said corruption can never take place without an unholy nexus. “There is no easy way to stop corruption by bureaucracy without bringing necessary reforms in the administration.”The anti-corruption watchdog chief said all types of corruption are not included in the scheduled crime of the ACC and that’s why they cannot take action in all cases of corruption.last_img read more

Soul mate view of marriage limits women

first_imgWives who have a romantic view of marriage are less likely to do volunteer work for the wider community, leading their husbands to volunteer less as well, says a study.The researchers focused on whether couples took a “soul mate” view of marriage, making it their top priority in life; or whether they held a more traditional view, placing additional values on other functions of marriage such as raising children and fulfilling financial needs.“Wives who take a more romantic view of marriage appear to seek (emotional) satisfaction primarily through husbands, which might take couples’ time and energy away from their involvement in the community,” the researchers wrote. But husbands’ romantic view of marriage was associated with neither their own nor their wives’ volunteering, the study found.  Also Read – Add new books to your shelfFor the study, Young-Il Kim from Baylor University and Jeffrey Dew from Brigham Young University, both in the US, analysed data from the Survey of Marital Generosity, a recent US national sample of 1,368 married couples ages 18 to 45. Participants were asked about their views of marriage, how often they volunteered, how much time they spent solely with each other and how often they attended religious services.The study, published in the journal Sociological Perspectives, found that wives’ view of the marriage as “soul mates” was associated with less volunteering of both wife and husband, but a man’s having a soul mate view of marriage was not associated with volunteering by either spouse.Time spent alone with one’s spouse was positively associated with husbands’ reports of their own volunteering.last_img read more

More travellers more prepaid cards

first_imgOutbound tourism in Australia, matched with the strength of the Aussie dollar has seen an increase in the popularity of travel cards. With over seven million outbound Australian tourists and figures expected to exceed 10 million by 2020, Australian company OzForex is set to launch its new online prepaid travel card. Offering free currency reloads, low ATM fees, heightened transparency and greater exchange rates; OzForex said it is determined on shaking up the industry. “Most travel cards are seen as a lucrative product, but poor exchange rates and high or even hidden fees mean that they don’t deliver good value for travellers,” OzForex chief executive Neil Helm said. “At OzForex, we’re ready to change that. Because we are a currency specialist, not a bank, we are able to offer rates at much tighter exchange rates than other providers.” The main difference between OzForex’s new product and similar cards on the market is the inclusion of fee-free online reloads. “Instead of paying an extra 1 – 1.1 percent for every currency reload, customers will be able to recharge the OzForex Prepaid Travel Card as much and as often as they like, paying only the basic exchange rate while enjoying considerable savings,” Mr Helm said. Independent financial comparison website Mozo said the card is suitable for all travellers, especially those planning on visiting multiple destinations. “The OzForex Travel Card is one the most competitive multicurrency cards on the market, mainly due to the absence of reload fees. It is 100% online so it offers flexibility and convenience that other cards don’t,” Mozo representative Kirsty Lamont said.“We offer nine different currencies on the card as we recognise that business and leisure travellers visit a wide range of destinations and therefore need a card that supports multiple currencies,” Mr Helm added.

Nevada officials reach out to Dbacks on potential

first_img Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation Daryn Colledge reached the pinnacle of the NFL in February when he wonthe Super Bowl as a member of the Green Bay Packers. In the same seasonhe was at the top of the league his new team, the Arizona Cardinals,finished at the bottom of the NFC West. That’s alright with the offensiveguard though, he’s looking forward to the challenge.“I think it was an exciting opportunity,” Colledge told reporters in FlagstaffSaturday. “This was a team that was in the Super Bowl a few years ago. Alot of that talent is still here. These guys are extremely talented. I knowthey had a down year last year but I thought it was an opportunity to be apart of a project. That’s exciting to me. I won a world championship lastyear and that felt great but I’d love to try and do it again with a team that’sstarting out at the bottom.” Top Stories He’ll get his first opportunity to do that in a little over a week as theCardinals open their preseason at Oakland on August 11 at 7 p.m. Sports 620 KTAR’s Kyndra de St. Aubin contributed to this report Comments   Share   D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ While some may take issue with Colledge referring to the Cardinals as a‘project’, the honesty is refreshing. The team finished 5-11 last season andwill not only have a new quarterback in Kevin Kolb but a completelyrevamped offensive line. Those changes will make getting to know eachand staying healthy a huge deal for the unit.“Chemistry is the most important thing for an offensive line,” Colledge said.“For us it’s going to be getting into camp as soon as we can and stayinghealthy. If we can find a way to keep five guys in there healthy for a fullseason we have a great opportunity to have a lot of success.”That success will be judged on how well Colledge and his new linematesprotect the aforementioned Kolb.
