Premier Stephen McNeil Recognizes Davis Day

first_imgThe following is a statement by Premier Stephen McNeil. On June 11, 1925, thousands of striking coal miners in Cape Breton marched through the streets and around Waterford Lake, taking a stand against harsh treatment by their employer. After reaching their destination, company police began firing at the unarmed miners. William Davis, a second-generation miner, husband and father, was killed. Several others were wounded by the more than 300 shots fired that day. They have not been forgotten. Each year on June 11, Nova Scotians have recognized William Davis Miners’ Memorial Day – a time to pay tribute to and reflect on the memory of William Davis and all miners who have lost their lives on the job. Their sacrifices have advanced workers’ rights and workplace safety in our province – not just for miners, but for all of us. Government’s commitment to workplace safety has resulted in positive changes, like stronger legislation for mining operations and tougher laws for employers who repeatedly put workers at risk. When we all commit to keeping each other safe at work, we help ensure every Nova Scotian who goes to work in the morning returns home safely at the end of the day. -30-last_img read more

EU Official Algeria to Implode PostBouteflika

Rabat – The political implosion of Algeria after the death of ailing President Abdelaziz Bouteflika could cause the country of 40 million to fall into a civil war similar in nature to the ones ongoing in Libya and Syria, according to Pierre Defraigne, the Honorary Director General of the European Commission.“Europe must learn from the tragedy of Aleppo,” the leader told La Libre Belgique.  “And it must do so quickly because a new crisis threatens its immediate vicinity: Algeria, 40 million inhabitants, awaits indeed the clinical death of President Bouteflika, the latter being in fact unable to reign many years.”Boutefilka has appeared in public once every few months since his stroke in 2013. Since the incident, his sons and political allies have been running Algiers in the president’s name. The country has no clear path forward after Bouteflika – aged 79 – passes. The president removed term limits from the constitution, which has allowed him to cling to power for four terms.Two years of low oil prices have forced the government to consider austerity measures, which are unpopular with citizens, who are accustomed to large food and gas subsidies.“The succession of Bouteflika will activate the fundamental conflict which has deafened in Algeria for thirty years, between the Islamists, supported by Saudi Arabia, and the soldiers, who confiscated the revolution and govern by cumulating corruption, imperialism and repression”, Defraigne said. “The risk of implosion and civil war is, alas, very serious,” he said.The honorary EU official added that Algeria’s fall would likely bring millions of immigrants to French-speaking countries in Europe, due to geographic proximity and a shared language as a result of over a century of French occupation. read more

Bombardier shares surge on Q1 results CSeries test flight schedule

MONTREAL – Bombardier reassured investors Thursday that its “game-changing” CSeries remains on schedule for its maiden flight next month unless unforeseen events prompt a short delay.“We’re still feeling very good about flying in June,” Bombardier Aerospace president Guy Hachey said after the company’s annual meeting.“Obviously, there’s always some risk until the end. I don’t anticipate any major delays if something were to happen.”He said the first completed CS100 is days away from being transferred to the testing centre where it will undergo weeks of taxiing around Mirabel airport and be subject to ground vibrations and other tests.Virtual testing of the airplane’s systems, including fly-by-wire, is expected to be completed in early June. The final of seven tests on the aircraft structure is slated to be completed next week.“Most of the issues that could trip us up are behind us,” Hachey told reporters.He said the company hasn’t nailed down a firm date for the first flight because of potential last-minute problems and the number of groups that are involved in the event.Weather on that day also has to be ideal, added CEO Pierre Beaudoin.With just weeks remaining ahead of the scheduled deadline, analysts welcomed Bombardier’s (TSX:BBD.B) confidence about the first test flight.“We believe this will continue to help to lift sentiment — particularly if it is matched with new orders going into the Paris Air Show next month,” said analyst Walter Spracklin of RBC Capital Markets.Bombardier said one unnamed customer facing financial difficulties cancelled its order for three CSeries planes.However, analyst Cameron Doerksen of National Bank Financial said the move was “immaterial.”“We view management’s confidence in its target at such a late stage in the safety-of-flight testing as a good sign,” he wrote in a report.Despite years of stagnant share price, Bombardier told shareholders that the CSeries and other airplane and railway projects will boost the company’s revenues and profits in the coming years.“Bombardier is at a pivotal point: 2013 is the solid foundation on which we will achieve our growth ambitions,” Beaudoin said.The company expects its revenues will grow by US$10 billion to US$16 billion over more than five years, while profit margins should increase by three to four percentage points.The company’s shares hit a new 52-week high Thursday after it reported strong first-quarter results. Shares reached C$4.55, but were up 27 cents or 6.38 per cent at C$4.50 in afternoon trading on the TSX.Revenues surged 25 per cent on higher-than-expected aircraft deliveries.Bombardier earned US$148 million or eight cents per share in the three months ended March 31, down from US$155 million, also eight cents per share, in the same 2012 period.Revenue totalled US$4.3 billion, up from US$3.5 billion.On an adjusted basis, net income increased four per cent to US$156 million, up from US$150 million.That equalled eight cents per share, one penny below analyst expectations.It delivered 53 aircraft, up from 37 last year, but orders decreased to 28 from 40 a year ago.Hachey said he hopes its business jets will have another good year in 2013, while noting economic challenges in key markets such as Europe.“Challenges persist in the market and we anticipate that the recovery could still take another year,” he warned.Bombardier said a prototype for the new Montreal subway cars should be added to the city’s network by the end of this year, after months of testing.The first cars being assembled at its plant in La Pocatiere, Que., are slated to be tested this month, transportation president Andre Navarri told shareholders.“Even in this period of continuing uncertainty, the world rail market is full of potential and remains resilient, with a stable annual growth rate of 2.8 per cent,” he said.Meanwhile, Bombardier chairman Laurent Beaudoin said the board will consider a policy at its July meeting that would allow the company to recover compensation if an executive is convicted of fraud or illegal activities.The move follows SNC-Lavalin’s (TSX:SNC) decision to withhold payment to former CEO Pierre Duhaime, pending his trial for fraud.

ATT discover Jim Hensons 1963 Robot film

first_imgJim Henson (whose 75th birthday Google celebrated with a Doodle last year) is most well known for creating The Muppets and advanced puppets for TV shows Fraggle Rock and Dinosaurs, as well as movies The Dark Crystal, and Labyrinth. But in 1963 he made a very different short film involving a robot for The Bell System.AT&T has recently discovered the film in its archives and decided to share it with the world via its website and YouTube. You can watch it below.Entitled simply Robot, after finding it the film was confirmed as being a Henson production by Karen Falk of the Henson Archives. It was originally commissioned for a seminar held in Chicago aimed at business owners when Bell was trying to promote data communications for the first time. The seminar ended up being called the Bell Business Communications Seminar and consisted of several short films interspersed with presentations.The whole event was organized by Inpro, with Ted Mills of Inpro briefing Henson on what they needed. The film is meant to depict the robot thinking he can run a business better than humans, and the tension between both. Ultimately, they both need each other as the short clearly demonstrates.If you consider this film was made nearly 50 years ago, I think Henson managed to pull it off very well. No one had a better mastery of puppets, and clearly his robot skills were great too.Such a discovery makes you wonder if there any other Henson gems hiding away in archives elsewhere.

Chine Sina Weibo veut lutter contre les rumeurs

first_imgChine : Sina Weibo veut lutter contre les “rumeurs”Le très populaire service de microblogging, Sina Weibo souhaite agir pour empêcher les “rumeurs” de circuler sur son réseau. Il s’apprête à renforcer les contrôles, alors que le site est aujourd’hui largement utilisé pour contrer la censure exercée par les autorités chinoises. C’est une nouvelle qui va fortement déplaire aux internautes chinois. Alors que les services de microblogging ont connu une croissance exceptionnelle cette année, le plus populaire d’entre eux Sina Weibo s’apprête à renforcer ces contrôles. A lui seul, ce site compte aujourd’hui 200 millions de membres, soit près de la moitié des 485 millions d’internautes que recense le pays. À lire aussiPinterest, dinosaure et NASA, les 8 actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 25 févrierOr, ces derniers mois, Sina Weibo a été, à plusieurs reprises, utilisé par ses membres pour dénoncer les mauvaises pratiques voire les abus de pouvoir des autorités ou d’entreprises. Dans un pays où la presse est fermement contrôlée par le gouvernement, les internautes ont trouvé dans le microblogging un moyen d’exprimer leur opinion, dont ils semblent ne plus pouvoir se passer.”Il y a beaucoup de fausses informations et de rumeurs sur Weibo, et cela représente un défi important pour le gouvernement ainsi que pour les commerçants sur notre plate-forme”, a ainsi déclaré Charles Chao, CEO de Weibo, dimanche, cité par l’agence Nouvelles de Chine. Selon lui, ces rumeurs provoquent des “distorsions et de fausses représentations” de la réalité contre lesquelles il faut lutter. Ainsi, il a ajouté que sa société “explore différents moyens pour mettre en place des mécanismes pour contrer” leur propagation, notamment grâce à la mise en place de plusieurs équipes de dix personnes chacune.Une censure très présente Si Sina Weibo confirme son intention de renforcer ses contrôles, les internautes chinois verront une fois encore les restrictions tomber, tandis que la Chine exerce déjà une censure de l’internet en bloquant de nombreux sites basés à l’étranger tels que Facebook, Twitter, ou encore Youtube, ainsi que les informations considérées comme sensibles par le gouvernement.

MediaNext Scaling Quality Journalism

first_imgNew York–Any media company dedicated to quality journalism can produce it, but not all can sustain themselves on it. Scaling that quality-building it out into a usable, profitable model-is the challenge publishers face going forward.James Bankoff, chairman and CEO of Vox Media, a digital pure-play which owns and operates sports site network SB Nation, tech media title The Verge and a new gamer site, Polygon, addressed the issue as the opening keynote speaker at FOLIO:’s MediaNext industry conference in New York this afternoon.”We’re trying to scale quality,” he said. “Quality journalism, quality design, quality advertising integration, quality audience development-ultimately ending up with quality brands.” Audience FragmentationIt’s becoming increasingly evident, Bankoff noted, that audiences are moving away from traditional outlets, instead gravitating towards more specialized, niche voices. Previous experience in the development of celebrity-news giant TMZ taught him the lessons that now drive SB Nation.”It’s really important to understand that fragmentation has occurred,” he said, pointing to SB Nation’s highly-individualized, but vast network of team sites. “And we take that to the nth degree. We literally have a website for each individual team. [We have] a brand that speak just to them. Multiply that by every single team in the U.S. and increasingly in Europe, and you get 320 different URLs, 320 different brands that each speak to communities and fans of that team.”Web-Native EditorialThe tools for reaching the fragmented audience are there, but they’re still being perfected-“We’ve by no means figured it out,” Bankoff admitted, “but we’re pretty advanced in trying things.”Editorially, finding web-native talent is the No. 1 priority. The days of reporters working their way up from small, local beats to a national stage are gone. Instead, Bankoff will pluck those who’ve proven that they can already be successful on their own. Add SB Nation’s resources, and it’s a formula for scale.Timing is also a key ingredient in overcoming fragmentation.”We’ve gone from a weekly news cycle, to a daily, to a nanosecond,” Bankoff said, who noted that Vox charts the length of time it takes for writers to get a story onto the site.Advertising While the best practices for editorial content are still being figured out and experimented with, advertising is at a distinct crossroads, according to Bankoff. The future for media publishers is either in programmatic, systematized buying, or in more creative, customized space.Believing in the latter, Vox has implemented several of more integrated, customized campaigns in selling site backgrounds.”It takes up a lot of pixel space,” he said, “but the consumers love it.”With more than 300 individual brands, the numbers vary, but they tend to back up the statement. Vox is seeing a 1 to 10 percent click-though rate with these custom ad models, 10 to 100 times more than more traditional ad campaigns.To stay updated on the latest FOLIO: news, become a Facebook fan and follow us on Twitter!last_img read more

Hanley Woods Head of Content Steps Down

first_imgHanley Wood’s president of content, Bob Benz, has left the company. Benz was hired in early 2012 as one of the first of a series of executive changes to initiate a transformation plan for the company.Hanley Wood CEO Peter Goldstone confirmed Benz’s departure, but did not elaborate on the circumstances other than to say he left to “pursue other interests.”Benz was tasked with leading the company through a digital-first strategic shift and was the first executive-level appointment to focus only on content. Dave Colford, as president of Hanley Wood Media, will be heading up content and sales in the wake of Benz’s departure. “We do not expect to miss a beat in executing our digital content strategy,” says Goldstone in email to Folio:, adding, “We appreciate Bob’s contributions in assisting and supporting the executive team with the ambitious digital and data transformation agenda I laid out two years ago.”last_img read more

Clamshell packaging curbside recycling ends in Anchorage

first_img#1 Clamshell plastics like this blueberry container are no longer accepted in Anchorage curbside recycling. (Photo by Abbey Collins/Alaska Public Media) Now, she says the best way to keep those containers out of the trash is to stop buying them. Caldwell says she hoped a new market would emerge, but that hasn’t happened. The plastic containers commonly used to package fruits and leafy greens can no longer be recycled in Anchorage “When that happened, which, #1 plastics are the lowest grade plastic that we accept, they started to not have any market for manufacturing,” Caldwell said. In recent years, China changed its rules for recycling imports. “That’s really the biggest thing we can do when we talk about waste reduction is just refusing things at the source,” Caldwell said. Suzanna Caldwell is the Recycling Coordinator with Solid Waste Services. She says, the new rule is a result of changes in global recycling markets. The city announced Thursday that #1 plastic clamshells are no longer acceptable in curbside recycling. If they are purchased, Caldwell hopes residents will consider different ways to reuse the plastic. Clamshells are also not accepted at recycling drop off sites.last_img read more

Dabangg 3 Mouni to replace Kareena for special dance number set to

first_imgSalman Khan, Mouni RoyTwitterSalman Khan, who is gearing up for the release of Bharat, is currently shooting for Dabangg 3 in Mumbai. And next week, the superstar is set to shoot for a dance number for the movie and Mouni Roy has been picked by Salman to appear in the song along with him.The dance number will be on the lines of the two item numbers from the previous Dabangg franchises, Munni Badnam Hui and Fevicol Se.Reportedly, the work on the sets have been completed for the shoot and while Mouni will raise the glamour quotient with her sexy dance moves, Salman is expected to have his own hook steps. Salman and the Gold actress had earlier performed together on Bigg Boss stage, however, this is the first time the duo will be sharing the screen space in a movie.”Work on the set is being completed for the shoot, which is scheduled in the next couple of days. The setting for the number, which is on the lines of Munni Badnaam in Dabangg (2010) and Fevicol Se in Dabangg 2 (2012), is of a small-town watering hole. While Mouni will perform some sexy moves, Salman, too, will have his own hook step for this song,” a source told DNA.Post shooting the special song, Salman will take a break from Dabangg 3 shoot as he will get busy with the promotion of his Eid release Bharat. “After filming the special song, shooting for Dabangg 3 will resume next month as Salman also needs to travel for the promotions. Moreover, when it comes to shooting such numbers, he usually wraps up in a day or two at the most. And that’s the way the song’s shoot has been planned,” the source added.Dabangg 3 will see Salman reprising his role of the famous cop Chulbul Pandey and is set to release on December 20, ahead of Christmas.  Dabangg 3Instagramlast_img read more

Special Counsel Robert Mueller Steps Down After Leading Russia Inquiry

first_img Share Alex Wong/Getty ImagesThen-FBI Director Robert Mueller testifies during a hearing before the House Judiciary Committee in June 2013.Special counsel Robert Mueller stepped down Wednesday after concluding Donald Trump didn’t conspire with Russia’s interference in the 2016 election — but also detailing what critics called a range of troubling conduct.Mueller addressed reporters at the Justice Department in his first public statement since taking over the Russia investigation, ending one of the most unusual periods of silence by such a high profile public official.Mueller, 74, is one of the most decorated law enforcement officers of his generation and was the longest-serving FBI leader since J. Edgar Hoover.He was appointed in the spring of 2017 to take over the FBI’s inquiry into whether Trump’s campaign had conspired with Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election.In a word, the answer was no, according to the special counsel’s findings.Nor did Mueller decide whether to bring criminal charges in connection with Trump’s attempts to frustrate that investigation. So Attorney General William Barr concluded there would be none.In the end, the decision was “binary,” as Barr later told lawmakers: Did Mueller’s findings have sufficient weight to justify criminal charges? No, concluded Barr.That announcement was hailed by Trump and his supporters and met with deep skepticism by Democrats and Trump’s other opponents.Mueller, who had become a cult figure for members of a self-styled “resistance” who prayed — in some cases, literally — that he could bring Trump down, instead delivered what Republicans called a political inoculation of a kind seldom enjoyed by a president.The company manA longtime registered Republican, Mueller served under presidents from both political parties, winning the confidence of attorneys general from John Ashcroft under George W. Bush to Eric Holder under Barack Obama.“I don’t know a person more dedicated to the concept and ideal of justice,” Ashcroft told NPR after Mueller was named special counsel in May 2017. “Mueller is a person of character and insight, industry and integrity.”Under Trump, however, Mueller and his office endured withering criticism from the president himself and Republican allies who accused the special counsel of assembling “angry Democrats” to perpetuate a “witch hunt.”Mueller’s investigation led to charges against some two dozen Russians for allegedly interfering in the 2016 election.Mueller’s work also led to guilty pleas from or criminal charges against a number of people tied to Trump’s 2016 campaign, including his former national security adviser Michael Flynn, former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former deputy campaign chairman Rick Gates.Trump’s former longtime lawyer, Michael Cohen, pleaded guilty in a federal case in New York City that had been referred by Mueller’s office, and he later entered a second guilty plea for lying to Congress.Cohen and Manafort were sentenced to prison. Flynn and Gates are awaiting the resolution to their cases as they continue to cooperate with authorities.But the president described Mueller’s inquiry as a “hoax,” rejecting the need for an investigation into whether there were any “links and/or coordination,” as Mueller’s commission described it, between the Trump campaign and the Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.Ultimately, Mueller did not charge any Americans with a crime connected to his initial mandate — “collusion,” as it became known — but he did establish many previously unknown ties between Trump’s camp and Russia, even as Trump was denying any communication or business links.At the same time Trump was denying any business relationship with Russia, for example — as he was campaigning on the need to improve ties between Washington and Moscow — Cohen was negotiating a big potential real estate deal in the Russian capital.Trump’s allies also said prosecutors and FBI agents on the special counsel team had demonstrated “bias” by making political contributions to candidates or expressing private disdain for Trump in text messages.Sword of DamoclesMueller’s removal had been threatened for months, as a pressure campaign intensified after the special counsel team advanced to interview members of Trump’s inner circle in the White House.At least one of Trump’s attempts to fire Mueller was rejected by then-White House counsel Don McGahn — but the president didn’t press the issue. He did, however, later ask McGahn to create a document denying the earlier incident had taken place, according to Mueller’s report.Critics called that obstruction of justice.Trump has said all along that he did nothing wrong and he pointed to the cooperation his administration gave to Mueller. All those witness interviews, including with McGahn, and documents could never amount to obstruction, Trump argued.Even so, Trump said he also maintained that he had the power to fire Mueller, as he had fired former FBI Director James Comey, and remain within his power under the Constitution.“I could fire everybody right now,” Trump said. “But I don’t want to stop it because politically, I don’t like stopping it.”Mueller made virtually no public statements to defend himself. Apart from a few comments in response to press reports by a spokesman, Mueller’s office was a black box.The unfinished workMueller’s resignation does not mean the end of cases connected to Trump.Trump’s friend and GOP political consultant Roger Stone, for example, is set to go on trial in the autumn in connection with charges that he engaged in witness tampering, lied to Congress and obstructed its inquiry into the role he played in 2016 as an alleged conduit to WikiLeaks.Stone has pleaded not guilty and says he did nothing wrong.U.S. attorneys offices up and down the East Coast also are believed to be investigating Trump, as are some state law enforcement officials — for example, those with jurisdiction over Trump Tower in New York.And Democrats are using their majority in the House to pursue a number of their own inquiries into Trump and Russia, Trump’s business practices, Trump’s inauguration committee and other subjects.Members of Congress also want to hear from Mueller himself.The leaders of the House Judiciary Committee have agreed they want to call Mueller to testify about the conduct of his investigation.What hasn’t been arranged is when such a hearing might take place or whether Mueller would even agree to appear. Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler said last week he believed Mueller wanted to talk with members of Congress behind closed doors.Burning down the bureauTrump opposed Mueller and targeted federal law enforcement from the beginning. For example, in December 2017, Trump said in a tweet that the FBI’s reputation was “in Tatters.”And in early February 2018, he maintained that leaders at both the FBI and the Justice Department “have politicized the sacred investigative process in favor of Democrats and against Republicans — something which would have been unthinkable just a short time ago.”Former FBI director Comey, whose firing in May 2017 prompted the appointment of Mueller, complained that the president and his allies had chosen a strategy to defend themselves that prompted them to decide to “burn down the entire FBI.”Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the man who handpicked Mueller for the job to instill public confidence in the Russia investigation, defended Mueller amid attacks from Trump and Republicans in Congress.Rosenstein pointed out that the special counsel had moved an FBI agent off the team quickly after his disparaging texts came to light.“He is running that office appropriately, recognizing that people have political views but ensuring that those views are not in any way a factor in how they conduct themselves in office,” Rosenstein testified before Congress in December 2017.He had said that no one was more qualified for the complex and sensitive job than Mueller and that he had seen no “good cause” to fire him.Copyright 2019 NPR.

Dreamliner glitch adds to Boeings nightmare

first_imgA technical malfunction saw pilots of the first 787 Dreamliner forced to manually deploy landing gear; its systems indicating the jetliner’s wheels were not properly down.Both Boeing and All Nippon Airways (recipient of the first 787 Dreamliner) are investigating the incident that saw pilots land at Okayama on their second attempt, Reuters reported.Whilst experts have claimed, “teething problems are relatively common for a new jetliner entering service”, the Dreamliner’s launch (and earlier failures to launch) has again put Boeing’s beleaguered jetliner in the headlines.Following years of delays, the first craft was delivered to ANA, when barely a week into its regular service, the glitch occurred.”This glitch shouldn’t have any impact on customer perceptions of the 787, as long as Boeing aggressively pursues its investigation and implements any needed fix,” Teal Group aerospace analyst Richard Aboulafia told the source.According to Reuters, ANA advised that it will limit use of the Dreamliner to domestic routes before flying it internationally.
