Alberta third province to allow Sikhs to ride motorcyles without helmets

first_imgEDMONTON – Alberta is to allow turban-wearing Sikhs to ride motorcycles without helmets.The exemption to the province’s Traffic Safety Act that will apply to adult motorcycle drivers and passengers is to go into effect on April 12.Transportation Minister Brian Mason says the change follows a request from the Sikh community.The decision means Alberta will be the third province to make the exemption after British Columbia and Manitoba.Private member bills which would exempt Sikh motorcyclists were introduced in Ontario by former NDP MPP Jagmeet Singh in 2013 and 2016, but the rules in the province haven’t changed.Mason notes that Alberta has the third highest Sikh population in Canada.“The Sikh community has urged us to grant this exemption in recognition of its civil rights and religious expression,” Mason said Thursday in a release. “Our government is committed to these principles.”The Sikh Motorcycle Club of Ontario praised Alberta’s decision and says Ontario should follow suit.“We call upon the government of Ontario to set aside its unfounded subjugation and allow Sikhs to ride motorcycles with turbans in Ontario,” the club said in a statement.“It is unfortunate that the Liberal Party of Ontario under Premier Kathleen Wynne remains adamant on its stand to deny the Sikhs this basic right.”Jagdeep Singh, the Ontario club’s secretary, said Sikh motorcycle clubs in B.C. and Manitoba are also pleased with Alberta’s move and hope other provinces will grant Sikhs helmet exemptions.Baltej Singh Dhillon, first RCMP officer to wear a turban, also lauded Alberta’s move. He said it shows respect for diversity and religious rights.“The decision by the government of Alberta to allow Sikhs to be able to ride their motorcycles without having to remove their turbans, which is an integral part of the Sikh identity, demonstrates a deep respect for the traditions and customs of the Sikh community,” he said in a release.last_img read more

US Senate Fails to Confirm David T. Fischer as Ambassador to…

Rabat – According to the US congressional record for January 4, the Senate has returned the nomination of David T. Fischer as ambassador to Morocco back to US President Donald Trump.Fischer’s was one of several nominations returned to Trump because the Senate failed to be confirmed before the Senate adjourned sine die—without setting another meeting.Trump nominated Fischer as ambassador to Morocco in November, 2017. Fischer began his confirmation hearings in the US Senate’s Foreign Affairs Committee in August 2018. According to the Congressional Research Service, nominations “that are pending when the Senate adjourns sine die or recesses for more than 30 days are returned to the President unless the Senate, by unanimous consent, waives the rule requiring their return.”It remains to be seen whether Trump will choose to re-nominate Fischer or submit a new nomination.Read Also: Trump Appoints Businessman David Fischer as New US Ambassador to MoroccoTraditionally, Congress scraps pending nominations before a new Congress convenes.Fischer, who contributed to Trump’s inauguration fund, was nominated nine months after Ambassador to Morocco Dwight Bush left in 2017.The US Senate Foreign Affairs Committee waited nearly 10 months to hold a hearing on Fischer after his nomination.Moroccan analysts translated Trump’s initial delay in appointing a US ambassador to Rabat the result of possible tension, especially when Trump’s administration had nominated an ambassador to Algeria in July 2017.In Fischer’s August 2018 hearing, however, the nominee said that Morocco and the US enjoy healthy relations.He also said that Morocco is one of the US’s “oldest allies.” read more

The Latest: Amid trade war, China’s Xi heads to Moscow

NEW YORK — The Latest on rising trade tensions between the U.S. and China (all times local):12:20 p.m.Chinese President Xi Jinping is talking up the Chinese economy’s resilience as he heads to Moscow for a state visit affirming increasingly close ties between the former Cold War rivals.In interviews published Wednesday, Xi told Russian journalists Chinese consumer demand is driving growth despite the trade war with the United States.The trip to Moscow highlights Beijing’s efforts to drum up support both at home and abroad as the President Donald Trump’s administration pushes China to do more to redress a huge perennial trade surplus and end policies that U.S. and other foreign companies and governments say violate Beijing’s market-opening commitments.While Russia has relatively little heft in global trade, Xi can be assured of a friendly audience when he defends China’s position in the dispute.The Associated Press read more

Apples hardware blitz continues as it rolls out first update to the

Apple Inc. introduced the first update to its iMac all-in-one desktop computer since mid-2017, continuing a hardware blitz ahead of a highly anticipated event March 25 to unveil new media and entertainment services.The latest iMac adds speedier processors from Intel Corp. and new graphics engines from AMD. The new 4K 21.5-inch models are up to 60 per cent faster with 8th-generation quad-core chips, while the 5K 27-inch versions are up to 2.4 times faster with 9th-generation eight-core Intel processors, Apple said Tuesday.The new 21.5-inch iMac will still start at US$1,299, while the larger-screened model will sell for US$1,799. Apple is also still selling a 21.5-inch iMac without a 4K or 5K screen for US$1,099.

Mali UN mission calls for restraint return to negotiations after clash in

The UN Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) said that “incidents of a serious nature” took place yesterday despite a security plan coordinated by the Government in cooperation with the UN Mission and support from the French security mission in Mali, known as Serval.“MINUSMA, in close cooperation with Serval, assisted the evacuation of three of the injured for medical care in Gao,” the Mission said in a statement.The violence broke out ahead of the planned arrival of Prime Minister Oumar Tatam Ly and a Government delegation to Kidal.Since early 2012, the country has witnessed a military coup d’état, renewed fighting between Government forces and Tuareg rebels, and the seizure of its northern territory by radical Islamists.In April, the Security Council approved a 12,600-strong MINUSMA, authorizing the blue helmets “to use all necessary means” to carry out security-related stabilization tasks, protect civilians, UN staff and cultural artefacts, and create the conditions for provision of humanitarian aid.Its core task is to support the political process in Mali, in close coordination with the African Union (AU) and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). read more

Experience campaign captures Brocks momentum

Experience. It’s a single word used to describe all that Brock life encompasses — one that has stopped people in their tracks and caused them to take notice.Experience is at the centre of Brock University’s most recent brand campaign, launched in the fall of 2016 to highlight the institution’s top experiential education programming, exceptional student and campus life experience rankings, and above-average graduate employment rates.Brock’s ‘Experience.’ campaign has been drawing attention across Ontario after being launched in September 2016 in one of Canada’s busiest thoroughfares — the Skywalk of Toronto’s Union Station, the Pearson Express station and the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.The campaign, which has been drawing attention across Ontario, was developed to tell Brock’s story and shed light on opportunities for the exceptional experiences offered by the University, whether in a classroom or lab, at a co-op placement or through on- and off-campus activities.It was first introduced last September in one of Canada’s busiest thoroughfares, with Brock’s message of experience and success displayed in the Skywalk of Toronto’s Union Station, the Pearson Express station and the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.The campaign has since been popping up with great impact in many strategic locations, using banners, billboards, bold poster walls, massive floor decals and large-scale digital screens to catch the eye of prospective students.“Experience matters, and Brock University is an exceptional choice for students looking to gain the experience they need to be successful after graduation,” said Gord Hunchak, Associate Vice-President, External Relations. “The ‘Experience.’ campaign packages Brock’s leadership in experiential learning opportunities, our top-quality programs and the renowned campus experience students rave about into one clear and succinct message.”The results to date have been overwhelmingly positive, as the new campaign has contributed to the record crowds that poured into Brock’s Fall Preview Day in November, and the Spring Open House in April, two of the University’s most important events in the annual student recruitment calendar.The April event itself drew nearly 5,000 prospective students, parents and other guests from across Ontario, representing a 12 per cent increase over 2016.This increased interest in Brock is translating into increased application numbers, and more importantly, a large increase in the number of students choosing the institution as their first choice for the Fall of 2017.“While the ‘Experience.’ branding is still new and fresh, we will continue to develop and evolve the platform to ensure more students, their parents and potential community partners see and hear the Brock message,” added Hunchak. “If you want to be successful, come to Brock. It’s a great story to tell.” read more

Pot board convenes to finalize regs

first_imgThe state is set to finalize commercial marijuana regulations. But several controversial sticking points have yet to be settled, including rules for on-site consumption.Voters approved the legal the production, sale and use of marijuana for Alaskans over 21 years old in the November election. (Creative Commons photo by Brett Levin)Download AudioThe state’s Marijuana Control Board has spent months writing rules to determine how Alaskans are allowed to grow, sell, and use marijuana. On Friday the five-member board will discuss around 50 proposed amendments, most of them based on feedback submitted from the public.“We received over 500 pages of comments from the public,” said Marijuana Control Board Chair Bruce Schulte, adding that the original package of policies is only 130 pages. “So, a lotta folks are paying attention.”Once the regulations are finalized they’ll go to the Department of Law for review, and then on to the lieutenant governor for approval. There’s a chance that actions from the legislature could disrupt that timeline.If things advance on schedule, the state is required to have a permit system in place and begin accepting commercial applications by Feb. 24, 2016.“But then, this is an agricultural product, of course, so people still have to grow some product, and dry it and cure it and prepare it,” Schulte said. Taking the full timeline into consideration, he thinks commercial sales at retail stores will begin this summer.  “Somewhere between June and August.”One of the biggest points of friction in the developing regulations is over “on-site consumption,’” which determines whether the state will allow for marijuana cafes or clubs. Draft regulations in their current form don’t allow a venue like a bar–but for marijuana. Schulte is submitting amendments that would create a permit option for businesses allowing on-site consumption based on strong public input.“Not just from people in the cannabis culture,” he added,  “but also from city officials — notably Juneau and Fairbanks, who actually requested that businesses of that type be defined in the regulations.”The state’s meeting coincides with a new draft document in Anchorage laying out detailed regulations on commercial marijuana in what many expect to be Alaska’s largest marijuana market. The ordinance came from the Community and Economic Development committee that handles Title 21, the code governing land use, which is chaired by conservative Assembly Member Amy Demboski. The proposal is new, but beginning to draw criticism for placing a cumbersome burden on growers and commercial operators. The draft requires businesses to take steps like forecasting potential amounts of wastewater, receive certification from an “industrial hygienist,” and keep growing plants organized in “orderly rows.” The ordinance needs Assembly approval before it can take effect.The Marijuana Control Board meets Friday in the Anchorage Legislative Information Office, and again on Monday if they don’t finalize regulationslast_img read more

Alaska Airlines pilots disappointed that large wage increases still have them behind

first_img(Photo courtesy of Alaska Airlines and Virgin Airlines)Alaska Airlines pilots are getting a significant boost in pay. Since acquiring Virgin America last year, Alaska has established itself as the fifth largest air carrier in the country. But pilots from both companies felt they were underpaid in comparison to their peers from other airlines. An arbitration panel ruled Tuesday to increase the pilots’ wages.Listen nowThe average pay increase for Alaska Airlines captains was 16% and the average for Virgin America captains was 29%. First officers from both airlines saw increases of 28% and 45% respectively.David Campbell is a pilot and spokesman for the Air Line Pilots Association, the union that represents the pilots. He says the large increases are a sign of how low the previous wages were.“The increase in wages is a good example of how far we were from our peers at other airlines,” Campbell said. “And this negotiation was really about bringing into parity with our peers across the industry and this arbitration ruling failed to do that, so we’re disappointed.”In a press release from the union, Capt. Chris Notaro expressed disappointment that while these pay increases are significant under most circumstances, pilots with Alaska Airlines are still paid less than their contemporaries at other airlines.The arbitration panel ruled that while Alaska Airlines operates the fifth largest air carrier in the country, the volume of business they conduct is dwarfed by the larger carriers, such as Delta, United and American. Their larger revenues and operations allow for their pilots to have higher salaries.Campbell said the arbitration process that began in late August was a last resort for the pilots: used to get what they considered to be fairer wages.“We were in direct negotiations, and didn’t make any progress there,” Campbell said. “We didn’t make any progress in mediated discussions. And they really forced us into this arbitration, and it’s very disappointing that it had to go that far.”Alaska Airlines declined to do a recorded interview on the topic. They released a statement stating, “We respect the decision of the arbitrators and the process they went through.” They emphasized, “Our commitment is to keep our company strong with low costs, low fares, and great experience for our guests while paying competitively.”Both Alaska Airlines and former Virgin America pilots are under the same contract now, effective November 1st of this year. The contract also contains minor increases to some retirement benefits.last_img read more

Houston Sees First Gas Price Spike Since Prices Fell After Harvey

first_img Share Twitter user @NBCDFWRising Gas PricesThe cost for a gallon of gas has increased in Houston, according to AAA Texas. It’s the first time gas prices have increased for the city, since prices began falling after the spike from Hurricane Harvey.Gas prices in Houston rose 4 cents this week; that’s 26 cents more per gallon, compared to the same day last year. The average price jumped 5 cents in the state of Texas, at $2.30 for a gallon.“This is the strongest demand we’ve seen since October of 2006,” said AAA Texas’ Daniel Armbruster. “So as consumers fill up their tanks more frequently, supply levels tighten, and that means gas prices tend to increase.”Armbruster also told News 88.7 that prices may continue to inch upward, as thanksgiving approaches.AAA Texas said in a press release:While prices are increasing, Texas motorists are still paying some of the cheapest prices in the country for gasoline. Texas ranks 4th in the nation among states with the lowest gas prices. Meanwhile, drivers in Alabama ($2.21) are paying the least for a gallon of regular unleaded. Drivers on the West Coast are paying the most for gasoline in the United States.last_img read more

Krishna Bose Tagores poems offer solace

first_imgKrishna Bose, author, social worker, ex-Parliamentarian, and wife of Netaji’s nephew Sisir Kumar Bose, has come up with a hauntingly beautiful rendition of Rabindranath Tagore’s poems in the album, ‘Rabindranather Bhasha, Amar Moner Katha’. The CD was recently released by Bhavna Records & Cassettes and represents Tagore’s philosophical ruminations on life and death through these poems. In many ways, the poet’s thoughts match Bose’s ruminations on subjects like life and death. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe ace elocutionist speaks about how Tagore offers a refuge in human trials and tribulations. In the first poem “Jte nahi dibo,” the poet talks about the pain of separation that he experiences as a father while leaving his own wife and daughter for work. Bose’s rendition captures the emotion-laden situation with accuracy and then this pain translates into the universal pain of parting that death ultimately brings while being separated from life.In another poem, ‘Brahman’, Tagore maps out the story of a young boy, a non-Brahmin, who comes to the ashram of Rishi Gautam, to acquire knowledge which is the prerogative of Brahmins. When the Rishi wants to know his caste, he goes back to his mother who disappoints him. When Satyakam returns, he is the object of ridicule of other students of the ashram but the Rishi embraces him as the superior one, the one with true education. “This”, says Bose, is “an answer to Rohith Vemula’s letter written before he committed suicide”. Vemula was a Dalit student of Hyderabad University who was alleged to be a victim of casteist politics inherent in our educational system.In other poems like “Shesh Katha” and “Joydhwani”, Bose renders with authenticity the celebration of life which the poet talks about in the last stage of his life, the pitfalls along the way and the inevitability of death.last_img read more

first_imgCyprus was among countries that have not fully complied with any of the recommendations of the Council of Europe’s Group of States against Corruption (Greco) regarding corruption prevention, a report said on Tuesday.According to Greco’s annual report, which reviews action taken by its 49 member states against corruption, in 2018 in respect of MPs, judges and prosecutors and its most recent evaluation round focusing on preventing corruption in central government and law enforcement agencies, Cyprus, that has 14 non-implemented or only partially implemented recommendations, is among the countries with the highest number of pending cases.Turkey was the first with 33, followed by Bosnia and Herzegovina at 23, Greece with 19 and Armenia, Belgium, North Macedonia and Serbia with 17 each.Cyprus was also among the countries with the highest number of non-implemented recommendations in respect of parliamentarians and among the 16 countries which had not yet fully complied with any of Greco’s recommendations in respect of MPs.According to the report, Cyprus was also among 10 countries that had not yet fully complied with any of Greco’s recommendations in respect of judges.Nearly all Greco member states have been evaluated under the 4th evaluation round, which focuses on preventing corruption among parliamentarians, judges and prosecutors.Overall, the implementation of Greco recommendations slowed down in 2018, the report said as only 34 per cent of recommendations had been fully implemented by the end of the year. The lowest level of compliance concerned recommendations in respect of parliamentarians while it was higher for those concerning judges and prosecutors, it said.In a compliance report published last September on the recommendations issued in the Fourth Round Evaluation Report on Cyprus, Greco had recommended that a code of ethics/conduct for members of parliament – including their staff – be adopted, covering various situations of conflicts of interest, such as gifts and other advantages, third-party contacts and lobbyists.For judges, Greco had recommended that the composition of the Supreme Council of Judicature be subject to a reflection process considering its representation within the judiciary.You May LikeCity BeautyLift Sagging Skin And Jowls Without Surgery (Do This)City BeautyUndoGundry MD | SupplementsTop Cardiologist: It’s Like Giving Your Body A New “Battery”Gundry MD | SupplementsUndoDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
