(Tom Steepe/CBC)center_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Davida Aronovitch, the manager of Heritage Minutes, says Montgomery’s Minute will show a personal side of the Anne of Green Gables author.“I think a lot of Canadians know that L.M. Montgomery wrote Anne of Green Gables, and that she shaped Anne after her own dreams and experiences, but I think fewer know who she really was a person, and she’s fascinating, so we’re hoping to share something of that with Canadians.”There have been many requests over the years for a Lucy Maud Montgomery Heritage Minute, according to Historica Canada, the company responsible for the short films. (Parks Canada)A crew is on the Island this week, shooting in some of Montgomery’s favourite places.Montgomery was inspired by the natural landscape and it wasn’t uncommon for her to get out into nature for long walks, to take trips to the beach, sometimes even to write at the beach, Aronovitch said.READ MORE Advertisement Advertisementlast_img read more

Inside the kitchen of The Bachelor Canada and Carnival Eats host Noah

first_img Facebook Login/Register With: Between filming Carnival Eats and The Bachelor Canada, TV host Noah Cappe spent over 200 days on the road last year. This means, when he’s home in Toronto, Cappe spends most of his time relaxing with his wife, Keri West, and his friends and family—not cooking. “We’ve used our oven five times at the most since we moved in—two years ago,” says West. The couple, though, are known for their epic parties. (Cappe has seven siblings, so even intimate family gatherings are pretty big affairs.) They’re about to begin a massive reno on the first floor of their 100-year-old Christie Pits home. They’re adding a sunken living room to the back of the house, with a private theatre underneath. “The kitchen will be at the centre of everything, the heartbeat of the house,” says Cappe.Since neither Cappe nor West are big on cooking, their grocery list is curt: bread (bagels, English muffins, baguettes, toast) and Harmony milk. “Bread is my weakness,” says Cappe. “And chocolate milk, my medicine.” When pressed about what she likes to make for herself at home, West asks, “Does that include UberEats?”READ MORE Advertisement Advertisementcenter_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment NOAH CAPPE – PHOTOGRAPHY BY GABBY FRANK Twitterlast_img read more

North American markets fall into the red loonie down half a cent

first_imgTORONTO – The loonie lost more than half a cent on Tuesday as Canada’s main stock index fell and U.S. stocks ended a six-day winning streak following a long holiday weekend.The Canadian dollar closed at an average trading value of 79.23 cents US, down 0.51 of a cent US from Friday.“The dollar is at levels not seen at a while. We’re closing in on 79 cents,” said Luc de la Durantaye, managing director of CIBC Management.De la Durantaye said a decline in gold prices — the April bullion contract fell US$25.00 to US$1,331.20 an ounce on Tuesday — helped give the greenbank a leg up on several global currencies.“Gold had rallied along with the decline of the U.S. dollar. There’s always been a bit of a negative correlation between gold prices and the U.S. dollar,” he said.In currency markets, Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index was down 13.20 points to 15,439.44, weighed by losses in the gold, base metals and materials sectors.South of the border, a sell-off Tuesday afternoon led by technology companies wiped out early gains in New York.In New York, the Dow Jones industrial average fell 254.63 points to 24,964.75. The S&P 500 index was down 15.96 points to 2,716.26 and the Nasdaq composite index gave back 5.16 points to 7,234.31.Market commentators say some of the broader issues on investors’ minds right now are looking across to the bond market and seeing the U.S. 10-year Treasury starting to approach the 3 per cent level. Bond yields, which move opposite price, are rising on concerns of higher inflation.Worries about inflation sent stocks falling on Feb. 2 after reports of greater U.S. wage growth increased the likelihood that the Federal Reserve could raise interest rates more rapidly, making it more expensive for businesses and individuals to borrow money.Elsewhere in commodities on Tuesday, the April crude contract was up 24 cents to US$61.79 per barrel and the March natural gas contract was up six cents at US$2.62 per mmBTU.The March copper contract was down six cents to US$3.19 a pound.last_img read more

Morocco to Create Sharia Board and Open Financing to Participatory Banks

Tunis- Morocco’s King Mohammed VI issued a Royal decree on February 17 directing the establishment of a sharia board for Islamic finance. The objective of this decree is to oversee the Moroccan Islamic finance system, according to the country’s official bulletin, in a step that could help the market attract Gulf investors. This perspective is based on a participatory approach.Islamic banks from Kuwait, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates have expressed interest in entering the Moroccan market once the bill becomes  law.The financial system is based on Islamic scholars’ interpretation of Islam that bans interest payements.  In Morocco, the system is called the Sharia Committee for Participatory Finance  and is composed of ten Islamic scholars and at least five financial experts, according to the official release. The members will be chosen by the president of the Supreme Ulema Council in Morocco. For the Moroccan Sharia Board, the word “Islamic” (in reference to banks) will be changed to “participatory” in the legislation, to encourage Moroccans to contribute to its development and enable private firms to issue Islamic debt independently from the question of religion.The Parliament approved the Islamic finance bill last November, which was the first step to establishing Islamic finance banks.Moroccans are in favor of this system. A study conducted in June 2012 by the Islamic Finance Advisory and Assurance Services (IFAAS) revealed that 94% of Moroccans are in favor of the practice of Islamic finance in the country.Edited by Elisabeth Myers© Morocco World News.

Disasters perpetuate cycle of poverty says UN agency

16 September 2008Recent devastating storms and floods have reinforced poverty in many parts of the world, the United Nations agency tasked with minimizing the threat posed by natural disasters said today. “The extreme and repeated consequences of hurricanes in the Caribbean and the [United States] show that development levels are directly linked to the toll that natural hazards take on a country’s population,” said Sálvano Briceño, Director of the UN International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR) Secretariat.He noted that it will take Haiti, one of the world’s poorest nations where over three-quarters of its population living on less than $2 a day, years to recover from the four storms which have battered the Caribbean in the past few weeks.“Even if a developed country is highly hazard-prone, they are still far less vulnerable than a less-developed country with weak infrastructure and limited capacity for prevention and response,” said the Director of the Geneva-based agency.Some 94 per cent of all those who lost their lives in natural hazards in the past 25 years had either low or lower-middle incomes, with half of all deaths occurring in countries low on the human development scale.Climate change is leading to more frequent and intense natural disasters, threatening development, Mr. Briceño noted.“The Millennium Development Goals [MDGs] will not be fully achieved if disaster risk reduction is not among the solutions used to reduce poverty,” he stressed, referring to the eight anti-poverty targets with a 2015 deadline. read more

TN governor wants India to impose sanctions on Sri Lanka

According to him, the rehabilitation measures taken by the Sri Lankan government were not at par with the expectations. Referring to the attacks on Indian fishermen by Sri Lankan security forces, Rosaiah said: “The fishermen of Tamil Nadu, who earn their livelihood in their traditional fishing areas of the Palk Bay region, are victims of repeated harassment and murderous attacks by the Lankan Navy.” Tamil Nadu Governor K. Rosaiah Friday urged the Indian government to impose economic sanctions on Sri Lanka and take steps to ensure that those displayed by the ethnic conflict there returned to their original homes.Delivering his address on the first day of the first assembly session of 2013, Rosaiah said: “I reiterate the resolve expressed by the Tamil Nadu assembly June 8, 2011 to urge the Indian government to initiate action by working with other nations for imposition of an economic embargo on the Sri Lankan Government till the Tamils living in camps are resettled in their own places and are allowed to live with dignity, self-respect and equal constitutional rights on par with the Sinhalese.” The Sri Lankan military, which vanquished the Tamil Tigers, has repeatedly denied the charge. (IANS) He said the Tamil Nadu government was anguished at the harassment of Indian fishermen by the Sri Lankan Navy while the Indian government showed “utter disregard” to their woes.Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa has emerged as a trenchant critics of the Sri Lankan regime for among other things the mass killing of Tamil civilians in the ethnic conflict that ended in May 2009. read more

Parties to UNadministered treaty move to curb hazardous wastes

The 15 projects designed to promote practical progress on hazardous waste management are the first step to implement the new 10-year strategic plan of the Basel Convention on the Transboundary Movement of Hazardous Wastes and Their Disposal, administered by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP),The projects were agreed to by States parties at the first session of the Convention’s Open-ended Working Group over the past week. A total of $880,000 will be allocated to five projects in Africa, five in Latin America, three in Asia and two in Europe. “These important projects open up a new era in the global campaign to ensure that hazardous wastes are minimized and safely managed,” Sachiko Kuwabara-Yamamoto, Executive Secretary of the Convention, said. “We need to generate greater momentum and more funding for launching many more projects that will tackle the risks that such wastes pose to human health and the environment.”Some of the projects address the challenge of detecting and preventing illegal shipments of hazardous wastes. Several provide training. Still others focus on improving the design and operation of waste landfills, developing inventories and databases, and assessing management options for priority waste streams such as used oil.There are currently 156 parties to the Convention. read more

DR Congo UN envoys note M23s announced cessation of hostilities

In a joint statement, the team, led by Mary Robinson, Special Envoy of the Secretary-General to the Great Lakes Region, said they were concerned about the renewed outbreak of violence and that the announced cessation is a “first and necessary step to peace.”They called on the M23 to renounce its rebellion as already agreed. The Envoys further called upon the Government of the DRC to restrain from further military action at this stage.The team includes Martin Kobler, Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General in the DRC and the head of the UN peacekeeping mission there known by its French acronym, MONUSCO.In addition, Boubacar Diarra, African Union Special Representative for the Great Lakes, Russell Feingold, United States Special Envoy for the Great Lakes and the DRC, and Koen Vervaeke, European Union Senior Coordinator to the Great Lakes Region.Talks between the M23 and the Government are being held in Kampala, Uganda, under the auspices of the Chairperson of the International Conference for the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR), Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, the Mediator, as well as Ugandan Defence Minister and Facilitator, Crispus Kiyonga.The Envoys urged both parties to remain committed to seeing the political process through to a final and principled agreement that ensures the disarmament and demobilization of the M23 and accountability for human rights abuses.Meanwhile, South African President Jacob Zuma is today hosting leaders from the 15-country Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) and some of DRC’s neighbours in the capital of Pretoria.Mrs. Robinson and the Envoys noted that the joint ICGLR-SADC presents an “important opportunity” to build consensus on ending the immediate security crisis and for moving forward with full implementation of the Peace, Security and Cooperation Framework Agreement.The 11-nation Agreement was signed earlier this year under UN auspices as a comprehensive approach to sustainable peace in the region. read more

New York train crash driver may have nodded off

first_imgTHE DRIVER OF a train that derailed in New York at the weekend, killing four people, experienced a “daze” right before the train derailed.William Rockefeller was interviewed by the National Transportation Safety Board investigators yesterday and admitted that he may have nodded off at the controls before attempting to hit the brakes.His attorney Jeffrey Chartier told reports outside the interview that Rockefeller had experienced a lapse in concentration similar to that of road fatigue, but couldn’t say how long it lasted.He said Rockefeller remembers “operating the train, coming to a section where the track was still clear — then, all of a sudden, feeling something was wrong and hitting the brakes. He felt something was not right, and he hit the brakes.”He called Rockefeller “a guy with a stellar record who, I believe, did nothing wrong.”“You’ve got a good guy and an accident,” he said. “A terrible accident is what it is.”Rockefeller “basically nodded,” said Anthony Bottalico, leader of the rail employees union, relating what he said the engineer told him.Investigators say it is too soon to say if human error played a part in the crash, but questions about Rockefeller’s role mounted as it was revealed the train had been travelling above the speed limit.Additional reporting by Associated PressPics: Four dead, 63 injured as passenger train derails in New York CityRead: Probe launched into cause of New York train derailmentlast_img read more

A breakthrough May and Juncker announce joint instrument providing guarantees on backstop

first_img Share190 Tweet Email Our agreement provides meaningful clarifications & legal guarantees to the Withdrawal Agreement & #backstop. The choice is clear: it is this deal, or #Brexit may not happen at all. Let’s bring the UK’s withdrawal to an orderly end. We owe it to history.— Jean-Claude Juncker (@JunckerEU) March 11, 2019 A breakthrough? May and Juncker announce ‘joint instrument’ providing guarantees on backstop Juncker said the Taoiseach would be prepared to back the mechanism. 113 Comments BRITISH PRIME MINISTER Theresa May and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker gave a late press conference in Strasbourg tonight.It followed what was being described as a last ditch attempt by May to secure Brexit concessions from the EU ahead of a planned House of Commons vote on the deal tomorrow. Reading from prepared statements, the pair said they had agreed a joint instrument providing guarantees on the backstop. The announcement came as ministers here prepared to reconvene a Cabinet meeting – their second of the day, called in response to the Brexit developments in Strasbourg. Earlier, British Cabinet Office Minister David Lidington told MPs in the House of Commons tonight that the government had secured “legally binding changes that strengthen and improve the withdrawal agreement and the political declaration”. He said the government had signed-off on a new document providing confirmation that the EU could not try and trap the UK in the backstop indefinitely, and that doing so would be in breach of legally-binding commitments. “If – contrary to all expectations – the EU were to act with that intention, the UK could use this acceptance of what could constitute an explicit breach as the basis for a formal dispute, through independent arbitration, that such a breach had occurred – ultimately suspending the protocol if the EU continued to breach its obligations,” Lidington said. Juncker began his comments tonight by highlighting that any deal agreed must preserve peace on the island of Ireland. He said the backstop was an insurance policy and that if it was ever used it would not be used as a trap. The mechanism being announced tonight complemented the withdrawal agreement agreed last November without reopening it, he said – noting that this was a “second chance” and that there would be no third chance.Juncker implied that Varadkar had signed off on the strengthened guarantees offered to London. “I have spoken to the Taoiseach this evening who would be prepared to accept this solution in the interest of securing an overall deal,” Juncker told reporters. Source: Jean-Claude Juncker/Twitter 47,116 Views Reading her prepared statement, May said the backstop could not be a template for a future relationship and that so far that hadn’t been clear enough to MPs.  The EU, under the new proposals, will not be able to trap the UK in the backstop indefinitely, May said. If it makes any move to do so, that can be tackled through arbitration. “MPs were clear that legal changes were needed to the backstop. Today we have secured legal changes.” May said. “Now is the time to come together, to back this improved Brexit deal, and to deliver on the instruction of the British people.”She said it was the UK’s position that it believed it could withdraw, unilaterally, from the backstop if negotiations on the future relationship broke down. The Taoiseach delayed his planned US St Patrick’s trip as ministers met here to stay on top of developments. The Cabinet meeting broke up earlier this evening but recommenced at around 11pm. One minister described the mood as “sombre”. In London, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn called for MPs to reject the deal tomorrow.A spokesperson for the DUP said the party would take time to analyse tonight’s announcements. – With reporting from Christina Finn  Mar 11th 2019, 10:51 PM By Daragh Brophycenter_img British Prime Minister Theresa May (file photo) Image: Ben Birchall/PA Images British Prime Minister Theresa May (file photo) Monday 11 Mar 2019, 11:45 PM Image: Ben Birchall/PA Images As the clock ticks down, get all the best Brexit news and analysis in your inbox: Short URL Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Senate panel votes to lift 40yearold US ban on oil exports

first_imgThe Senate Banking Committee has endorsed a bill to lift the four-decade-old ban on crude oil exports, the latest sign of congressional support for legislation that President Barack Obama opposes.The banking panel endorsed the bill, 13-9, on Thursday, on a largely party-line vote. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota sponsored the bill and was the only Democrat to support it.Heitkamp said the bill would lower or stabilize gas prices, support jobs and increase U.S. influence abroad. Despite the largely partisan committee vote, Heitkamp said she is optimistic that Senate Democrats will support efforts to lift the export ban. The ban was imposed in the 1970s amid an energy shortage.The House Energy and Commerce endorsed a similar bill last month.The White House said it opposes both bills.last_img read more

Image Diagnostics Inc Introduces ilex55 Mobile Multimodality Monitor System

first_img Related Content Technology | Virtual and Augmented Reality | June 10, 2019 Medivis SurgicalAR Gets FDA Clearance Medivis announced that its augmented reality (AR) technology platform for surgical applications, SurgicalAR, has… read more April 6, 2017 — Image Diagnostics Inc. (IDI) recently introduced the ilex55 as the world’s first large field 4k mobile and multi-modality monitor system. With top surgical imaging capabilities in a mobile platform for hospitals and surgery centers, the technology offers superior clinical accuracy during gastrointestinal (GI), general, orthopedic, spine and vascular, hybrid surgery, according to IDI.In a recent interview, Kashif Ahmed, M.D., and David B. Thomas, M.D., leading gastroenterologists of IU Health, told of how ilex55 has changed their daily procedural experiences from their previous use of fixed integration in their primary OR. “Access to our fixed room is often limited and caused issues with scheduling in the past,” said Thomas.“We had to give 24-hour notice to line up the room for surgery or send patients to other hospitals for ERCP’s [endoscopic retrograde cholangio-pancreatography] because we couldn’t schedule the room in time,” said Ahmed. “The biggest benefit of having the ilex55 is that unpredictability in room scheduling has gone away due to the mobility of the system and that it can adapt to any room.” Along with mobility, the doctors also noticed that the quality and size of the imaging on the device enhanced their daily experiences during surgery. “The ilex55 has very good resolution, and I like the size because I don’t have to lean over to see like I had to before. Especially when you are doing multiple procedures in a day, it’s much more comfortable. I really like having all of the images right in one place and not having to look back and forth at the different screens. The convenience of that has been tremendous for us.”“And,” Ahmed added, “sometimes you might miss something small on the smaller screen. With the ilex55, I know I’m not missing anything. I also don’t have to mag up as much as I did before because I can see so well with the ilex.”They also mentioned the added features that ilex55 offers. “The speakers weren’t the reason that we bought it, but it’s a really nice feature to have,” said Thomas. “Overall, there is a much better environment with the ilex.”Imaging features of the ilex55 include:55-inch UHD 4K monitor on an easy-to-move mobile platform with 20-inch vertical travel;Display one 4K image or up to four 26-inch HD images at one time;Remote control video formatting;Calibrated surgical color;Integrated speaker and USB charging station; andDisplays analog and digital signals from multiple sources including: C-arm, ultrasound, hemodynamics, microscopes, cameras, image guidance and picture archiving and communication systems (PACS).Other advantages of the system include:Precision and safety — ilex55 provides an increase in sharpness and clarity. Customers reported that due to the larger, clearer image, precision and safety have improved during procedures;Mobility and efficiency — The ilex55 is adaptable to any room or procedure, maximizing time and room ergonomics;Comfort – Customers reported that ilex55’s larger screen and ability to display four inputs on one imaging device increases comfort and reduces strain of having to look at multiple small screens during procedures; andDose reduction — ilex55 customers observe and state they will use the C-Arm Mag function less, as the image quality is improved and so much larger.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Procedure Navigation Systems | February 05, 2019 Medtronic Recalls Synergy Cranial Software and Stealth Station S7 Cranial Software Medtronic is recalling the Synergy Cranial Software and StealthStation S7 Cranial Software used with the StealthStation… read more Sponsored Content | Videos | Flat Panel Displays | December 25, 2018 VIDEO: 50 Years of Innovative Visual Technology EIZO, which means image in Japanese, is a visual technology company that develops and manufactures high-end display s read more Technology | Flat Panel Displays | April 06, 2017 Image Diagnostics Inc.

FLAGSTAFF Ariz — Its got to be a little strange

first_imgFLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — It’s got to be a little strange when a rival withwhom you’ve butted heads for seven years is suddenly wearing thesame uniform you are.When the Arizona Cardinals signed free agent guard Adam Snyder,formerly of the San Francisco 49ers, that’s exactly what defensiveend Darnell Dockett had to be feeling. Dockett and Snyder hadbeen through the rigors of NFC West battles between the twoteams — and now they’re on the same side. D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ Top Stories 0 Comments   Share   Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation “I don’t know how it differs, because he’s such an intense playerthat he goes hard all the time, so I’m kind of playing a game everypractice,” Snyder said on an interview with Burns and Gamboon Arizona Sports 620 Thursday. But despite his new surroundings, Snyder claims he feels totallycomfortable.“It’s been a very easy transition for me. The guys have been verywelcoming and I feel like I’ve been on this team for a long time,”Snyder said. “That says a lot about the guys that we have in thislocker room.” What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Fast forward four months — now the Dockett vs. Snyder battleshave shifted location.Instead of the two having tangles at University of Phoenix StadiumorCandlestick Park, they’re happening on the practice fields at NAU atCardinals Training Camp in Flagstaff.“We go at it pretty much,” Dockett said Thursday. “We don’t saymuch to each other going at it, then we’ll get off the field and we’llspeak and it’s like ‘what’s up? Hi. How you doing? I’m good.Alright.
