BC premier says wildfires prompted unprecedented second state of emergency

first_imgVANCOUVER – Premier John Horgan says successive B.C. governments have budgeted “laughable” amounts of money to fight wildfires that are becoming all too common through the ravages of climate change.Horgan said Tuesday during a visit to Prince George that the sky in the northern city turned jet black one morning last week from fires burning in nearby communities.“We have serious challenges for public health and we need to adapt our policy making, working with all levels of government to make sure that as we go forward we’re better prepared,” said Horgan, flanked by federal Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan, Mayor Lyn Hall and Grand Chief Ed John of the First Nations Summit.“Clearly, we are going to overshoot the budget again this year, which has happened repeatedly,” Horgan said, adding both federal and provincial governments must ensure adequate resources are available to safeguard communities.He said wildfires prompted an unprecedented second state of emergency in the province in the last 12 months after floods this spring, but he’s confident there’s enough contingency in the budget to provide the needed support.Canadian Armed Forces troops have been deployed to B.C. during the floods and wildfires this year, as well as for fires in 2017.Sajjan said troops have increasingly responded to disasters across Canada as climate change takes a toll on the environment.“We as a government do realize that we need to take steps in terms of how do we mitigate some of these things as we work very closely in trying to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, do our part as the rest of the world needs to do theirs.”British Columbia budgeted $63 million for wildfire suppression for the 2018-19 season but has already spent $274 million, according to figures from the Forests Ministry. It said last year’s budget allocated the same amount of money, but the firefighting efforts cost $649 million.More than 2,000 evacuees headed to Prince George after being ordered out because of an 850-square-kilometre blaze threatening an area from Fraser Lake to Fort St. James.Smoke from distant wildfires is forcing residents in parts of the province to stay indoors, especially if they have pre-existing conditions such as asthma, and tourism is being affected where skies are hazy.Teck Resources temporarily shut down its lead smelting operations in Trail, saying a supplier plant that provides oxygen is closed due to poor air quality that is affecting lead smelting.As part of the city’s wildfire prevention program that started in 2005, Hall said the community will discuss what steps it can take to mitigate future wildfires, including clearing the forest floor of debris.Lori Daniels, an ecology professor at the University of British Columbia’s faculty of forestry, said only about one third of B.C. communities have wildfire prevention plans though the risk of such disasters is increasing.She said it’s time for the public to support initiatives including tree removal in forests close to homes as climate change creates hotter, drier conditions after decades of fire suppression policies that led to an accumulation of dead trees and twigs that act as fuel for fires that can quickly get out of control.“This is an issue for all of us who live near burnable vegetation, which is pretty much a large proportion of Canadians, even in urban areas where we have forests that could catch on fire with these extreme weather conditions,” Daniels said.Community wildfire prevention plans would assess hazards, including small and big trees that need to be cut down in areas where homes are built close to forested areas, she said.“In many places in B.C., the forests adjacent to communities are so dense that even when you drop water on them from a water bomber the water all stays at the top of the trees and never makes it to the ground where the fire is travelling.”Logan Lake fire Chief Daniel Leighton said the community began a wildfire prevention program with provincial grants after extensive fires in the province in 2003 during a record-dry summer.He said the current program involves youth employed through a summer job-creation initiative that has them trimming branches and picking up debris to rid the forest floor of fuel.Between 150 to 180 hectares have been treated by hand since 2003 though small amounts of land are also clearcut, he said, adding that part of the program was a “hard sell” for people opposed to logging that’s done through a corporation set up to put money back into the community.“Once you start cutting down trees and thinning them down some people don’t like it, although they don’t like the fires either. But the last few years have been an awakening for some people.”He said public meetings provided residents with information about the benefits of the program that has attracted attention from other jurisdictions wanting to follow suit, including Colorado, Ontario and elsewhere in B.C., where similar but much smaller programs exist in a few areas including Kamloops, Merritt and some ski resorts.— Follow @CamilleBains1 on Twitter.last_img read more

Social Sciences and Humanities researchers gather to talk priorities

Student Kristina Wamboldt (right) was one of several representatives from Brock University at a recent meeting in Niagara-on-the-Lake of social sciences and humanities researchers from different universities and agencies.What will you look like in 2030? What will Canada look like? What will be your – and your fellow Canadians’ – needs, trends, aspirations that researchers will aim to address?Representatives from six southern Ontario universities, advocacy groups and the private sector hashed out these and other questions at the one-day “Imagining Canada’s Future” meeting in Niagara-on-the-Lake Sept. 21.“The future is all about ideas,” Gary Libben, Brock’s Vice-President of Research, told the gathering. “And knowledge created within the social sciences and humanities is key to building the future for the young people in this room.”Organized and hosted by Brock University, the meeting is part of a process to advise the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) on future research priorities.Participants expressed a wide array of worries about the future: Canada’s rapidly-depleting natural resource base, the increase of foreign control over these natural resources, sustaining a delicate health-care system, invasion of privacy through technology, and the destruction of the environment.That last point is especially urgent for Brock University Aboriginal PhD student Catherine Longboat.“Just last week I saw little trees – piles and piles of these little trees, whereas before on the logging trucks there were maybe 10 big trees,” she said.“I see clear-cutting on traditional lands. They (my community) already had a lot of understanding about why the trees had to be there in order to keep the water. And now I see the water levels are very low.”But out of these various concerns arose trends for the future.For Brock student Kristina Wamboldt, it’s going beyond a chalk-and-chalkboard approach in the classroom.“Technology really allows you the opportunity to hit those different types of learners at their strong points,” Wamboldt said. “Visual learners can see something happening on a YouTube video.“And then there’s the auditory learners. Teachers can give their instructions over the Internet so the students can listen to it again at home to jog their memory while they’re doing their practice work. Also, there are computer games that can be used in multiple subjects.”Besides advising SSHRC on future research trends, the meeting aimed to address an even more fundamental challenge: the need for investment in social science and humanities research.University of Guelph’s vice-president of research Kevin Hall says that for him, a holistic view of what constitutes “quality of life” is what counts.“It’s not all about technology improving the quality of life, it’s about understanding our social systems, looking at health prevention, health policy, fine and performing arts, all these things enhance our life,” Hall said.Many of the participants noted a bias in society favouring medical, technological or other natural sciences research.“There’s no question that without social science and humanities research, much of the other research that we do has no real impact,” said Wendy Cukier Ryerson University’s vice-president of research and innovation.“If you think about technological innovation, that depends not just on inventing technology, but on using those technologies appropriately, developing markets for those technologies, understanding how users will interact with the technologies.”SSHRC is the federal agency that disperses grants for research in the humanities and social sciences at the post-secondary level. In the 2010-2011 funding year, the value of all grants, fellowships, and scholarships supported totaled $332.4 million.In 2011 – 2012, the federal funding agency awarded $1.4 million in grants to 76 Brock University researchers. read more

WatchLegal pot shops in Saskatoon could face financial buzz kill due to

SASKATOON — Legal marijuana shops in Saskatoon could face a potential financial buzz kill.The city is considering a $20,000 licensing fee for a pot shop’s first year of operation and a $10,000 annual renewal charge.Why so high?The usual licensing fee to open other types of commercial businesses in Saskatoon is $125.Randy Grauer, general manager of Saskatoon’s community services department, said the substantial fees would reflect the cost of administering this new and complex type of business.If approved by city council, the fees would be part of Saskatoon’s cannabis licence bylaw.“This business environment was thrust upon municipalities and the licence fees reflect our costs,” Grauer said in a statement Tuesday.Recreational cannabis is to be legalized later this year by the federal government.Cierra Sieben-Chuback, a business school graduate who obtained one of the provincial permits to operate a cannabis retail shop in Saskatoon, said such fees would be a challenge.“It won’t prohibit me from opening,” she said. “But it’s a matter of how long it’ll take me to break even.”So far seven pot business licences have been approved for Saskatoon.A report from the city administration also suggests cannabis retailers should be required to install air filtration systems to minimize odours around neighbouring properties.The proposals are to be brought to a Saskatoon city council committee on Wednesday. read more

In Seychelles Ban calls for global action on climate change and easing

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon (left, standing) delivers remarks at Palace of Justice during his trip to Seychelles. UN Photo/Mark Garten. “In today’s world, we are all interconnected. Problems and challenges are never confined to one country or region. Insecurity is spreading. Massive inequality persists, among people and nations,” said said Mr. Ban, stressing that too many people in too many places are excluded because of their race, religion, faith, sexual orientation, gender identity and other differences.Moreover, he noted that violent extremists are committing atrocities designed to divide and destroy communities. Criminal networks are exploiting lawlessness and chaos and building links with terrorists, to traffic people, illegal drugs and weapons, and to hide their profits, he added. “These problems require cooperation and coordination, in a global response. The United Nations is the forum where we seek solutions,” the Secretary-General said, praising Seychelles’ strong democratic record, its efforts to secure political progress for women, measures to protect the environment – half the archipelago’s land and one third of its vast marine territory are already protected – and to promote the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). At the same time, Mr. Ban spotlighted key issues on the UN’s agenda that would require Seychelles’ ongoing commitment and support, starting with climate change. Recalling that last month, the UN had broken the record for the highest number of countries to sign any treaty or convention in one day when world leaders gathered at UN Headquarters on 22 April to sign the Paris Agreement on climate change. “Seychelles was one of them, and you went on to become the 16 country to ratify immediately as you sign this agreement. Congratulations and thank you very much for your leadership,” said the UN chief, also hailing the nation’s leadership and influence in urging other governments to ratify the accord as soon as possible, as 55 countries, representing 55 per cent of total global greenhouse gas emissions, are needed for the agreement to enter into force. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon feeds a giant tortoise during his visit to the Botanical Gardens in Victoria, Seychelles. The giant Aldabra tortoise is on the list of vulnerable species. UN Photo/Mark Garten. Mr. Ban next turned to the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, “with its 17 Goals – we call them SDGs – is our Declaration of Interdependence.” As the world is becoming more interdependent, among those 17 Goals, none could be implemented in isolation. “All these 17 Goals […] are tightly interconnected,” he underscored, adding that he Agenda, is a “universal project” that aims to enable all people to live in dignity, on a healthy planet.“But for island States, climate action and sustainable development are a matter of survival. They are two mutually reinforcing sides of the same coin,” said the UN chief, noting that storms, coastal erosion and rising sea levels can halt and reverse sustainable development initiatives in a matter of hours or days. Indeed, SDG 14 on conserving and using oceans and marine resources for sustainable development carries particular resonance for Seychelles and other island nations.“The true test of this new agenda will be in its implementation. We need action from everyone, everywhere. All sectors of society must be involved: government, businesses and civil society,” he said, welcoming the role of parliamentarians in beginning to engage on the SDGs more than a year ago. Further, Seychelles’ ‘Blue Economy’ initiative is drawing the world’s attention by linking the alleviation of poverty and improved food security with reduced environmental risks and ecological imbalances. As for his last key point, the Secretary-General drew attention to the unprecedented numbers of people in urgent need of humanitarian aid around the world. “Today’s refugees are caught up in the biggest displacement crisis of our era. I have been calling on leaders around the world, even in countries that have not been directly touched by this global phenomenon, to respond with compassion and respect for human rights,” he explained.Mr. Ban noted that on September 19th of this year, the UN General Assembly will hold a summit to address large movements of migrants and refugees across the world – and the need for shared responsibility. Moreover, later this month, on May 23rd and 24th, I am convening the first-ever World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul, Turkey.“World leaders will make commitments to uphold humanitarian law, to protect civilians in conflict, and to improve the global response to the 125 million people who need urgent humanitarian aid,” said Mr. Ban, stressing that this number – 125 million – is the largest ever since the end of the Second World War.“I count on Seychelles to engage in these important events,” he said, noting that from his first days in office in 2007, he had made climate change a top priority. “During the years of discussion, one thing has become very clear to me. Small States have big ideas and big political will. Your experiences, commitment and insights have been invaluable, he said, stressing: “When you are united, small states can change the world.”Speaking directly to the young people sitting in the National Assembly today, he said the United Nations sees youths not as leaders of tomorrow, but as leaders today. “We are working with young men and women around the world on initiatives to build peace, to create jobs and to fight violent extremism. As you look to the future, I urge you to lift your eyes above the immediate horizon and become global citizens, demonstrating your allegiance not only to your immediate community, but to the wider world,” said the Secretary-General. read more

Ohio State mens soccer suffers 1st loss of season

Then-junior midfielder Yianni Saris (6) dribbles the ball in an exhibition game against IPFW Aug. 20, 2013. OSU won 2-0. Credit: Lantern file photoThe Ohio State men’s soccer team is undefeated no more.OSU (2-1-3, 1-1-0) hung around with Penn State (6-0-1, 2-0-0) throughout much of the Sunday afternoon contest, but ultimately fell to the Big Ten leaders, 1-0.The trip to State College, Pa., was one that the Buckeyes knew all week would not be an easy one, junior defender Kyle Culbertson said.“We’re just looking forward to Penn State, knowing it’s going to be a hard game,” he said before the game. “I know they’re ranked pretty high in the country and also No. 1 in the conference, so I know it’s going to be a tough game. They’ve done well in the conference the last two years and kind of set the standard for everyone else.”The Nittany Lions, the two-time defending Big Ten champions, came into the game ranked No. 10 in the nation.Penn State scored the game’s lone goal late in the 63rd minute, when redshirt-junior midfielder Kyle MacDonald deposited a pass into an empty net.The net was abandoned because OSU redshirt-senior goalkeeper Alex Ivanov scrambled out to knock the ball away from sophomore forward Connor Maloney. Holloway was able to pass across to MacDonald, who put it into the far post.The goal was the first of MacDonald’s collegiate career.The Buckeyes only managed to register three shots on goal, with none representing a real scoring opportunity.OSU was outshot, 22-6, overall by the heavy-powered Penn State offense, which has scored at least one goal in each of its seven games this season.Senior goalkeeper Andrew Wolverton picked up his fifth shutout of the season to remain undefeated. Wolverton has yet to allow a goal this season, as the only score Penn State has allowed came after Wolverton received a red card Sept. 8.Ivanov made 10 saves in the defeat, a season high. Ivanov had only made 19 saves through the first five games, including not needing to make one in a shutout victory against Northwestern Sept. 14. That comes after making 110 saves last season, ranking fifth in the nation.OSU is scheduled to take a break from Big Ten play this week to host Akron on Wednesday before heading back on the road to travel to University of Dayton on Saturday. Those games are set to begin at 7 p.m. and 1 p.m., respectively. read more

Mediterranean diet better for the heart than taking statins major study suggests

first_imgA Mediterranean diet could be better than statins at reducing the risk of an early death for millions of Britons, research suggests.Leading heart experts said patients should be prescribed the diet – rich in fruit, vegetables, fish, nuts, whole grains and olive oil – before being put on drugs.In the first major study to look at the impact of the Med diet on survival of heart patients, experts found it cut the chances of early death by 37 per cent.Previous research has found just taking statins cuts mortality by 18 per cent. Experts said the figures were not directly comparable, and that many heart patients could get maximum benefit by doing both. The Mediterranean diet is widely recognised as one of the healthier nutrition habits in the worldProfessor Giovanni de Gaetano Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Doctors should “consider diet before drugs” and the state should subsidise fruit and vegetables to encourage Britons towards healthier diets, he said.“The National Health Service pays for drugs, but it doesn’t pay for vegetables,” he said. “The state should consider contributing towards those foods that make up the Mediterranean diet.”While many patients might still need statins, those sticking to such habits might be able to have a far lower dose, reducing the risk of any side-effects such as muscle pain.”It could allow patients to get the benefits of statins but without the side-effects,” he said, urging doctors and patients to think far more about lifestyle. Prof de Gaetano said: ”This was an observational study so we cannot say that the effect is causal. We expect that dietary effects on mediators common to chronic diseases such as inflammation might result in the reduction of mortality from any cause but further research is needed.”British experts said the “powerful anti-inflammatory effects” of foods such as olive oil, oily fish, nuts and vegetables was likely to make the difference. Dr Aseem Malhotra, a London cardiologist, said: “The results of this robust observational study are quite extraordinary.“The Mediterranean diet is more powerful than any drug at reducing death rates in patients with cardiovascular disease.”Prof Jeremy Pearson, Associate Medical Director of the British Heart Foundation, said: “It is good to know that even if you already have a history of cardiovascular disease, adhering to a Mediterranean diet reduces the risk of death.”This study suggests that even if you are already receiving medical care, if you add a Mediterranean diet, it will have further benefit. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, even if you have had a heart attack or stroke is really important and continues to benefit you.”center_img But they said the results were so remarkable that the state should consider handing out free fruit and vegetables, or subsidising such produce, to encourage the public to change its eating habits. Seven million people in Britain live with heart disease.The diet regime is already known to have a powerful protective effect against a number of diseases, including diabetes and cancer. Experts hailed the new findings, presented at the world’s biggest heart conference in Rome, Italy, as “extraordinary”, showing that the diet was “more powerful than any drug”.High consumption of vegetables had the greatest impact on survival, followed by oily fish intake, amount of fruit eaten and consumption of mono-unsaturated fat, found in olive oil.Professor Giovanni de Gaetano, head of the Department of Epidemiology and Prevention at the IRCCS Neuromed Institute in Italy, said: “We found that among those with a higher adherence to the Mediterranean diet, death from any cause was reduced by 37 per cent in comparison to those who poorly adhered to this dietary regime. The study tracked 1,200 Italians with heart disease over seven years, and participants recorded their food intake. Adherence to the Mediterranean diet was appraised under a nine-point scoring system. Over seven years, there were 208 deaths.After controlling for age, sex, education, exercise, smoking, blood pressure, cholesterol levels, diabetes and cancer, a two-point increase in the Mediterranean diet score was linked with a 21 per cent reduced risk of death.The closest adherence to the Mediterranean diet was associated with a 37 per cent lower risk of death compared with the bottom category. A previous study of 92 trials involving 200,000 patients found that people with heart disease were 18 per cent less likely to die early if they took statins.Researchers said the next step would be to investigate why exactly the Mediterranean diet appears to reduce the risk of dying early. “The Mediterranean diet is widely recognised as one of the healthier nutrition habits in the world.”In fact, many scientific studies have shown that a traditional Mediterranean lifestyle is associated with a lower risk of various chronic diseases and, more importantly, of death from any cause.”But so far research has focused on the general population, which is mainly composed of healthy people. What happens to people who have already suffered from cardiovascular disease? Is the Mediterranean diet optimal for them too?”He said the research suggested exactly this, with the Mediterranean diet showing a “powerful” effect, cutting deaths from all causes.last_img read more

Lead investigator taken off Reeva Steenkamp murder case

first_imgSOUTH AFRICA POLICE have appointed a new lead investigator to the probe into the death of Reeva Steenkamp.Olympic athlete Oscar Pistorius stands accused of pre-meditated murder in relation to the fatal shooting of his 29-year-old model and law graduate girlfriend on 14 February.Officer Hilton Botha was removed from the top job after the DPP reinstated attempted murder charges against him in recent days.“We recognise the significance, the importance… and the severity of the matter,” police commissioner Mangwashi Phiyega said, announcing that the case had been assigned to a lieutenant general.It is understood that Botha will no longer lead the investigation but could still be involved as he has not been suspended.The force has been criticised in South Africa, accused of “bungling” the case against Pistorius. Earlier today it emerged that investigators are yet to receive the telephone records of both the suspect and the victim in the inquiry.Pistorius’s lawyers were also able to poke holes in many of the prosecution’s arguments in court over the past three days because of perceived police shortcomings.The bail hearing was adjourned this afternoon, meaning it will stretch into a fourth day. Proceedings resume at 8am Irish time Friday.last_img read more

Le plus grand sarcophage égyptien connu a été découvert

first_imgLe plus grand sarcophage égyptien connu a été découvert Découverts en ruine dans la vallée des Rois pendant les années 80, ce n’est que grâce à une campagne récente que les morceaux de quatre sarcophages imbriqués ont commencé à être rassemblés. Résultat, les chercheurs sont tombés sur un coffrage de pierre de deux mètres cinquante de hauteur. Ce sarcophage est celui de Mérenptah, un des fils de Ramsès II. Si les Égyptiens antiques étaient connus pour leurs gigantesques monuments, leur folie des grandeurs touchait également l’intérieur de leurs tombes. Une équipe du Musée Royal de l’Ontario à Toronto, Canada, a ainsi reconstitué et identifié le plus grand sarcophage égyptien jamais découvert. Avec ses quatre mètres de long, 2,3 mètres de large et 2,5 mètres de hauteur, il abritait la momie de Mérenptah, un pharaon qui a régné il y a 3200 ans. Il était l’un des très nombreux fils de Ramsès II et il s’est illustré dans l’histoire antique par sa victoire sur les Libyens ainsi que sur les mystérieux Peuples de la Mer qui causèrent, au Proche-Orient, la chute des Hittites. Edwin Brock, du musée de Toronto, a découvert ce trésor dans les années 80, mais tout était brisé en morceaux. La tombe avait en effet été pillée il y a 3000 ans puis une partie du sarcophage a été réutilisée vers la même époque par le pharaon Psusennes. L’archéologue a pu bénéficier d’un projet de son musée en mars 2011 pour se consacrer enfin à la reconstitution du sarcophage.Quatre sarcophages imbriquésIl faut dire que Mérenptah jouait aux poupées russes puisque que sa momie était conservée dans pas moins de quatre sarcophages en granite rouge différents et imbriqués, d’où la taille colossale de la partie extérieure. Cette pratique surprend car son père Ramsès II et son grand-père Séti 1er étaient inhumés dans un seul sarcophage.Le puits d’accès à la tombe présente des trous qui indiquent la présence d’un système de poulies pour faire descendre l’imposant cercueil de pierre. Malgré cela, les travailleurs ont dû se résoudre à briser l’entrée de la chambre funéraire, puis à la reconstruire une fois le quadruple sarcophage mis en place.”J’aime bien me demander à quoi devait ressembler la conversation entre les travailleurs de la tombe et ceux de la carrière, s’amuse Edwin Brock. Cette étude a montré beaucoup de choses intéressantes sur de simples aspects humains de l’Ancienne Égypte qui fera peut-être sembler ces gens moins divins.”Le 8 décembre 2012 à 17:54 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

India caste violence leaves six dead

first_imgA protester (C) is beaten by Indian students after members of the Dalit community and other `low caste` groups threw bricks at their college, during countrywide protests against a Supreme Court order that allegedly diluted the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, in Meerut in Uttar Pradesh state on April 2, 2018Low-caste Dalits fought street battles with police on Monday that left at least six dead as protests against a Supreme Court rights ruling swept across large swathes of India.Protesters clashed with security forces, attacked buses and government buildings, and blocked trains and major roads.Four were reported dead in the central state of Madhya Pradesh, one in Uttar Pradesh and one in Rajasthan, police said.Madhya Pradesh was one of the worst hit but Rishi Kumar Shukla, director general of the state police, told AFP the protests had been brought “under control”.A curfew was imposed in parts of Gwalior due to the unrest, Anshuman Yadav, police inspector general for the city, told AFP.There were media reports of more deaths in Morena district of Madhya Pradesh, but police could not immediately confirm fatalities.The death in Uttar Pradesh was in Muzaffarnagar. “Some 30 police and about 30-35 protesters were also injured, one of them seriously,” said Praveen Kumar, the state police deputy inspector general.Rahul Prakash, superintendent of police in Alwar in Rajasthan, said two or three people had been hit by bullets during clashes in the city. Police added that about 20 people had been injured.Trouble was also reported in the capital New Delhi, and Punjab and Bihar states.The “Bharat Bandh” — or India shutdown — protest was called by groups representing the Dalits, once condemned as the “untouchables”, who make up 200 million of India’s 1.25 billion population and are at the bottom of the caste hierarchy.They are angry at a Supreme Court ruling that banned the automatic arrest of the accused in cases under a special law to protect marginalised groups who suffer widespread discrimination.The 1989 Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act was intended to guard against the harassment of Dalits and other groups.Dalit leaders say the ruling increases the likelihood of attacks.Dalits are among the most marginalised groups in a country where caste discrimination is outlawed but remains widespread.Last week a young Dalit farmer in Gujarat was beaten to death for owning a horse, which is seen as a symbol of power and wealth.’We salute them’Across the affected states, groups hurled stones, bottles and burning sticks at police and set buses on fire. Some sat on railway lines to block trains. Reports said a police outpost near Meerut in Uttar Pradesh was set on fire.Authorities in Punjab shut schools and colleges and postponed exams in some affected regions. Media reports said the government had restricted mobile internet services.Rajnath Singh, India’s home minister, called for calm.”The government is appealing against the court order but it is a responsibility of everyone including all political parties to ensure peace,” Singh told journalists in Delhi, where the Dalit protests caused traffic chaos.The discrimination has become a political issue in the run-up to a national election that must be held before May 2019.Rahul Gandhi, head of the opposition Congress party, hit out at the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.”Thousands of Dalit brothers and sisters are demanding the protection of their rights from Modi government on the roads today. We salute them,” Gandhi said.Dalit voters have apparently swayed towards the BJP in recent elections. Observers say this has helped Modi’s party take control in several Indian states.”The opposition’s nervousness is due to the never before seen nationwide support of backward castes to the Modi government,” Arjun Ram Meghwal, a BJP lawmaker and minister in Modi’s government, said on Twitter.last_img

Tortuguero business owners form new tourism chamber

first_imgRelated posts:Tourism sector blasts decree charging sales tax to national park entrance fees Singing animals will ‘save the Americans’ (and the Canadians) in a new Costa Rica tourism ad campaign Upbeat outlook for Costa Rica tourism, as visitors, revenue up in 2014 Costa Rica rises in global ranking of travel, tourism competitiveness TORTUGUERO, Limón – Every year, 100,000 tourists visit Tortuguero National Park and its surrounding hotels and restaurants on Costa Rica’s northern Caribbean coast. The park – known for its nesting sea turtles, tranquil canals and lush tropical rain forest – is the country’s fourth most-visited protected area.But Tortuguero also has its challenges, and to address its sustainability, security and popularity as a tourism destination, a group of 23 local business owners this month formed the Tortuguero Regional Tourism Chamber (CATUTOR), officially launched at an inauguration ceremony last Saturday.The new chamber is composed of owners of hotels, restaurants, tour operators, local souvenir shops and other businesses, the Association of Tortuguero Tour Guides and local nonprofit organizations. It is supported by the National Tourism Chamber (CANATUR).CATUTOR President Roxana Silman said a primary goal of the new chamber is improving the relationship between the tourism sector and the Tortuguero Conservation Area – part of the Environment Ministry’s National System of Conservation Areas – and reducing bureaucratic barriers for future projects.CANATUR President Pablo Abarca Heriberto, who attended last Saturday’s ceremony, said, “We support the formation of this group and their focus on working toward common goals. … It is essential to have an active effort that defends the tourism industry in the region in coordination with us.”In addition to improving relations with administrators of the Tortuguero Conservation Area, CATUTOR board members hope to address several other issues, including sewage treatment, sustainability certification (such as the Blue Flag program), better community relations and sea turtle protection.“The poaching of turtles and eggs still exists in the area, but it has decreased significantly in the past year,” Silman, who is a member of the Sea Turtle Conservancy, said. The conservancy is among a number of scientific groups that monitor sea turtle nests in Tortuguero.Silman said turtle poaching has decreased because of stepped up surveillance at all hours of the day, thanks to joint efforts by the National Police, park rangers, volunteers and environmental groups.“The police presence in the area has increased following recent violence in Limón,” chamber secretary Eugenia Jurado told The Tico Times, referring to last year’s murder of Costa Rican sea turtle conservationist Jairo Mora. “This has helped reduce the number of poachers and criminals [who operate] inside the park.”Hotel owners, park rangers and environmental groups have agreed to schedules and group size limits for tourists visiting nesting sea turtles. Turtle watching tours are monitored by National Police officers, park rangers, and NGO staff and volunteers. The Coast Guard helps by patrolling the coast.“Our efforts have helped improve the protection of natural resources, which is needed to help develop the region, Jurado said. “While our work focuses on protecting nature, we also need help protecting tourists and local residents, because the criminal element is coming from outside [the region].”Last December, three armed men wearing black ski masks attacked a tourist riverboat, robbing all 14 people on board. The bandits made off with cash, cellphones, watches and cameras belonging to tourists from the United States, Spain and Switzerland.The new chamber also is promoting a joint effort by the municipality and the Tortuguero Conservation Area to improve access to the region. Currently, access is only possible by boat and plane.Board members also say they will organize a turtle festival and other events to attract more domestic tourists.

Chile promotes civil union law for gay couples

first_img Facebook Comments SANTIAGO, Chile  — The Chilean government launched a campaign Tuesday to promote a new civil union law that will go into effect Thursday and apply to both heterosexual and homosexual couples. The law, long-sought by advocacy groups, is seen as a first step towards allowing gay marriage in the heavily Catholic country.“As Chile has changed, and for the better … this was unthinkable a few years ago,” said government spokesman Marcelo Díaz in launching the new promotional campaign, “A Law For All Families.”The new law enables unmarried heterosexual or homosexual couples living under the same roof to co-own property, receive inheritance and pension benefits, and make medical decisions.And if a child’s biological parent becomes no longer able to care for them, custody decisions will give priority to that parent’s civil union partner, a provision demanded by gay rights organizations.According to government figures, nearly 1,600 couples have registered so far under the civil union law.The government said a special plan would be in place to register civil unions on Thursday, despite an unrelated strike by civil servants.Chile was one of the last countries to legalize divorce, in 2004, and does not allow abortion under any circumstances.center_img Related posts:Costa Rica grants first gay common-law marriage in Central America President of Costa Rica raises LGBT flag over Casa Presidencial Costa Rica archbishop uses annual Catholic pilgrimage to promote church’s anti-gay, anti-IVF agenda Casa Presidencial presents gay common-law marriage billlast_img read more

culminated in a decision to send an all-party delegation to meet the president prime minister and home minister to ask for Lieutenant-Governor Kiran Bedi’s dismissal The decision was taken after an all-party meeting on Tuesday whose sole agenda was to discuss the functioning of the lieutenant-governor “The democratically elected government enjoys full power in Puducherry but the lieutenant-governor has been hindering the functioning of the government” K Lakshminarayanan Parliamentary Secretary to the Chief Minister said The trouble started last week when Municipality Commissioner R Chandirasekaran allegedly called for a public meeting in Mudaliarpet The meeting was to discuss civic issues in the area “The meeting was called without the knowledge of the local MLA A Baskar who found out about the meeting and asked Chandirasekaran why he had not been called” Lakshminarayanan said Following this Chandirasekaran filed a complaint with the police against the MLA allegedly on the instigation of the lieutenant-governor stating that Baskar had threatened him The issue of the meeting was brought up in the Assembly session Assembly speaker V Vaithilingam ruled that Chandirasekaran’s appointment as municipal commissioner should be put on hold until he appeared before a Privilege Committee to justify his actions and the Chief Secretary appointed an interim commissioner “Government servants need to obtain permission from their immediate superiors if they are being threatened by an elected official and Chandirasekaran should have received permission from the Chief Secretary before he filed a police complaint The Speaker did not transfer the officer nor did the Chief Secretary replace him These were all interim arrangements until the Privilege Committee met” Lakshminarayanan explained File image of Kiran Bedi PTI On Monday when the commissioner in-charge reported to duty he found that Chandirasekaran had also arrived for duty Bedi in the meanwhile had sent a note signed by her secretary reversing the order of the chief secretary The note also asked for a compliance report from the chief secretary Following this the Assembly Speaker issued orders to consider Chandirasekaran and the secretary to Lieutenant Governor Theiva Neethi Das as being in contempt of the House The Privilege Committee has summoned both of them and a contempt notice has been sent A three-hour long all-party meeting was called on Tuesday to discuss Bedi’s conduct “This is not the first time the lieutenant-governor has overturned an order issued by the elected government We want to protect the powers and privileges of the Legislative Assembly and its members” TPR Selvam representative of the All India NR Congress the main Opposition party told media persons after the meeting Around 21 parties adopted the resolutions of the meeting but the BJP and the PMK were conspicuously absent At loggerheads This is not the first time that the lieutenant-governor and the elected government have had problems R Rajasekar senior journalist said The two have been tussling over various issues ever since the new elected government took charge in 2016 “Earlier this year the chief minister and the lieutenant-governor had an issue over the suspension of a civil servant who allegedly sent obscene videos to a WhatsApp group administered by the Raj Nivas Since then things have only gotten worse” he says The previous argument led to both chief minister and lieutenant-governor visiting New Delhi and the lieutenant-governor writing an open letter to the public stating that she would resign in 2018 Since then there have been a number of problems with the movement of files and the issuing of contracts for the dredging of the harbour mouth Rajasekar says “(Chief Minister) Narayanasamy has been consulting with various lawyers and advisers to understand his powers of Puducherry’s elected government” he said In this case however the lieutenant-governor has not directly signed the note cancelling the chief secretary’s order but instead had her secretary sign it “The lieutenant-governor has been issuing all her orders through Twitter WhatsApp and other social media So far there are a number of files pending approval and she has empowered some government servants to act without consulting their superiors There has to be some clear demarcation between the functioning of the lieutenant-governor and the elected cabinet” Lakshminarayanan added In retaliation Kiran Bedi has taken to Twitter yet again “The irresponsible and immature conduct of the Chief Secretary has brought huge anguish and rift in the Governance of Puducherry” a tweet on 5 April reads The irresponsible and immature conduct of the Chief Secretary has brought huge anguish and rift in the Governance of Puducherry@HMOIndia https://tco/W05hGH67Ui — Kiran Bedi (@thekiranbedi) April 5 2017 Another tweet reads “Am repeatedly seeing first hand why
