Hes trying to make a buck off our backs Kanesatake grand chief suspends talks

first_imgLindsay RichardsonAPTN News Kanesatake Grand Chief Serge Simon came to the bargaining table with his council on Friday expecting an apology that, in the end, never came.As a result, Simon said he’s decided to cut off all talks with Oka Mayor Pascal Quevillon after the mayor refused to apologize for derogatory comments about the Mohawk territory.Simon and his band council met with federal and provincial governments earlier in the day in an attempt to diffuse tensions over a land dispute between Kanesatake and neighbouring Oka, northwest of Montreal.“The Mayor simply opened up this issue – and [Mohawk] council wasn’t prepared,” he told reporters. “It made it look like we refused or were hiding something, and we weren’t.“We have to take this back to the community somehow and start explaining, but what are we going to explain?” Simon added.The grand chief met with Marc Miller, parliamentary secretary to the federal minister of Crown-Indigenous relations and Quebec’s Indigenous Affairs Minister Sylvie D’Amours, at the downtown offices of Quebec Premier Francois Legault – who was not present for Friday’s trilateral encounter.As he left the discussions, Simon said he and his council had decided they “were not going to give the mayor any more importance.”“Yes the bridges are cut,” Simon told reporters alongside Ghislain Picard, regional chief of the Assembly of First Nations for Quebec and Labrador. “We’ll have no more discussions with him. My council agrees with me.“I think the population of this province should be looking at this mayor and really recognizing that he’s really not on the right track,” Simon added.Emotions have run high since news broke of local developer Gregoire Gollin’s intention to give back 60 hectares to the federal government as an ecological gift with the possibility that it would be eventually purchased by Kanesatake.Quevillon offended many on the territory when he raised concerns about becoming encircled by Kanesatake.Quevillon has said property values would decline and raised fears of illegal dumping and an expansion of cannabis and cigarette merchants.Oka’s mayor met with Miller and D’Amours following their discussions with the Mohawk leaders.On his way into the office tower, Quevillon told reporters he didn’t know what he was supposed to be apologizing for – and that he was unaware that the grand chief was expecting an apology prior to talks progressing.“What I understand is that I used words like smoke and pot shacks,” he said. “That’s the reality unfortunately. What we are seeing is the reality.”Quevillon said the Mohawks claim the land on which his town is settled, and his population feels as if they have been “taken hostage” by land disputes, including those in Deux-Montagnes, and a parcel of land in Mirabel – an ancestral hunting ground of the Mohawk people, according to Simon – that was also returned to the federal government earlier this year.“It’s 300 years that Oka is there, and we’re being told that, finally, these are lands that belong to the Mohawks,” he said.Simon said Quevillon’s comments Friday morning made things worse.“He made it clear he’s not going to apologize about what he conceives as the truth when he describes my community,” Simon said.“My community has several social problems, yes. But what’s he’s describing … it’s not the will of my council to propagate those social problems.”Despite the conflict with the Oka mayor, Simon said he had positive discussions with Miller and D’Amours.He said they talked with him about opening up more formal lines of communication between his council and the federal and provincial governments regarding land claims and expanding Kanesatake’s territory.For his part, Miller said he wasn’t expecting today’s meetings to result in a “historical breakthrough,” but rather to open the table to discussions while denouncing the use of inflammatory or sensationalist language moving forward.“It’s very important to have truthful information so that both communities can digest it and come to opinions as to what [the proposed agreement] is,” Miller explained. “The false information is very concerning for both federal and provincial governments.”“These exchanges of words, these dialogues – even in front of reporters – are done with the utmost respect, because we know we have learned from our lessons in the past,” he added.D’Amours said that she was satisfied with the outcome of the meetings with both the grand chief and Quevillion.“I’m very happy that we were able to have a day of frank dialogue with stakeholders,” D’Amours said.“I think we need to remember what the citizens want, and the citizens don’t want a crisis. So I think that both parties – even if both gentlemen don’t speak – the two parties agree that there has to be a dialogue, and there also has a be respect towards the population who don’t want a second crisis.”But, Simon said, any discussion about the expansion of Kanesatake is premature.His people will need to be consulted and vote on whether or not to accept any donations of land that the Mohawks already claim as theirs.“Our community still has to decide,” Simon said. “I think the mayor pressed the panic button a little too quickly.”With files from The Canadian Press.lrichardson@aptn.ca@sentimtllast_img read more

FCC votes along party lines to end net neutrality

first_imgThe Federal Communications Commission repealed the Obama-era “net neutrality” rules Thursday, giving internet service providers like Verizon, Comcast and AT&T a free hand to slow or block websites and apps as they see fit or charge more for faster speeds.In a straight party-line vote of 3-2, the Republican-controlled FCC junked the longtime principle that said all web traffic must be treated equally. The move represents a radical departure from more than a decade of federal oversight.The big telecommunications companies had lobbied hard to overturn the rules, contending they are heavy-handed and discourage investment in broadband networks.“What is the FCC doing today?” asked FCC chairman Ajit Pai, a Republican. “Quite simply, we are restoring the light-touch framework that has governed the internet for most of its existence.”The push to eliminate net neutrality has stirred fears among consumer advocates, Democrats, many web companies and ordinary Americans afraid that the cable and phone giants will be able to control what people see and do online. But the broadband industry has promised that the internet experience for the public isn’t going to change.The FCC vote is unlikely to be the last word. Net neutrality supporters threatened legal challenges, with New York’s attorney general vowing to lead a multistate lawsuit. Some Democrats want to overturn the FCC action in Congress.“The fact that Chairman Pai went through with this, a policy that is so unpopular, is somewhat shocking,” said Mark Stanley, a spokesman for the civil liberties organization Demand Progress. “Unfortunately, not surprising.”On Thursday, about 60 demonstrators gathered in the bitter chill of Washington to protest the FCC’s expected decision. Just before the vote, the hearing room was briefly evacuated and searched for unspecified security reasons.The FCC subscribed to the principle of net neutrality for over a decade and enshrined it in rules adopted in 2015.Under the new rules approved Thursday, the Comcasts and AT&Ts of the world could slow down or block access to services they don’t like or happen to be in competition with. They could also charge higher fees of rivals and make them pay up for higher transmission speeds. They just have to post their policies online or tell the FCC.Such things have happened before. In 2007, for example, The Associated Press found that Comcast was blocking or throttling some file-sharing. And AT&T blocked Skype and other internet calling services on the iPhone until 2009.Thursday’s rule change also eliminates certain federal consumer protections, bars state laws that contradict the FCC’s approach, and largely transfers oversight of internet service to another agency altogether, the Federal Trade Commission.Angelo Zino, an analyst at CFRA Research, said he expects AT&T and Verizon to be the biggest beneficiaries because the two internet giants can now give priority to the movies, TV shows and other videos or music they provide to viewers. That could hurt rivals such as Sling TV, Amazon, YouTube or startups yet to be born.However, AT&T senior executive vice-president Bob Quinn said in a blog post that the internet “will continue to work tomorrow just as it always has.” He said the company won’t block websites and won’t throttle or degrade online traffic based on content.Internet companies such as Google, Twitter and Facebook have strongly backed net neutrality.Netflix said in a tweet it is “disappointed in the decision to gut #NetNeutrality protections that ushered in an unprecedented era of innovation, creativity & civic engagement. This is the beginning of a longer legal battle.”White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the Trump administration “supports the FCC’s effort to roll back burdensome regulations. But as we have always done and will continue to do, we certainly support a free and fair Internet.”FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn, a Democrat appointed by President Barack Obama, lambasted the “preordained outcome” of the vote that she said hurts small and large businesses and ordinary people. She said the end of net neutrality hands over the keys to the internet to a “handful of multibillion-dollar corporations.”With their vote, she added, the FCC’s Republican commissioners are abandoning the pledge they took to make a rapid, efficient communications service available to all people in the U.S., without discrimination.But Michael O’Rielly, a GOP commissioner appointed by Obama, called the FCC’s approach a “well-reasoned and soundly justified order.”The internet, he said, “has functioned without net neutrality rules for far longer than it has with them.” The decision “will not break the internet.”New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, a Democrat, has been investigating what appear to be large numbers of fake public comments submitted to the FCC during the net neutrality comment period. He said 2 million comments were submitted under stolen identities, including those of children and dead people.___Associated Press Writer Chris Rugaber in Washington contributed to this story.last_img read more

BCE sells AlarmForces western home monitoring customers to Telus

first_imgTORONTO – BCE and Bell Canada formally closed their $182-million purchase of AlarmForce Industries on Friday, and immediately announced that the home monitoring company’s western operations and client base will be sold to Telus Corp.Vancouver-based Telus (TSX:T) will pay about $66.5 million for about 39,000 customer accounts in British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan — nearly 40 per cent of the total AlarmForce customer base in Canada.That’s equivalent to what Bell paid, per subscriber, to acquire Toronto-based AlarmForce and its 100,000 customers.Bell said AlarmForce customers — who pay monthly service fees — won’t see an immediate change and that Bell will work with Telus to ensure a smooth transition for the AlarmForce subscribers in the three western provinces.“For the time being, I would say that it’s going to be status quo for quite some time,” Rizwan Jamal, president of Bell Residential and Small Business, said in an interview.But eventually, he said, AlarmForce’s existing customers in the Bell territory will benefit from its investments in new, innovative services as well as the ability to bundle home monitoring with other services, particularly internet.“There is a good synergy between internet and the connected home,” Jamal said.“We continue to invest in our internet network and we’re making big investments in fibre (optic networks). We think this goes hand-in-hand with the connected home of the future.”He said Bell has “taken a couple of cracks” at the home monitoring business in the past but the timing is better now.“We really believe that monitoring is going to be an anchor of the solutions that we’re going to offer in the connected home. We feel (AlarmForce) is going to accelerate our position in that market,” Jamal said.IDC Canada researcher Emily Taylor said communication service providers hope to generate revenue from the proliferation of internet-enabled devices for homes — such as home-assistant speakers introduced to Canada last year.“And I think that’s ultimately why communications service providers across Canada are obviously striving for more ownership and investment in these services,” Taylor said. “More devices (means) more revenue, really.”She added that the connected-home services will help telephone, cable and wireless companies to retain their subscribers and help differentiate themselves from their competitors.Rogers got into the home security business in Ontario years ago and the AlarmForce acquisition is seen as a way for Bell Canada — its competitor in many industry segments — to become a more significant player.Jamal said BCE (TSX:BCE) was willing to sell such a large chunk of the AlarmForce customer base to Telus — a key rival in wireless networks — because most of Bell’s landline residential customer base is east of Saskatchewan.Telus — which has the majority of its residential lines in Alberta and British Columbia — has been quicker to push its home security services than Shaw Communications (TSX:SJR.B), its biggest competitor in the home market.“Telus has piloted technology in this space for a few years as part of our expanding home solutions services beyond internet, TV, and home phone as more products and services are connected to our network,” the company said in an emailed statement.last_img read more

Moroccos 1st Water Birth Takes Place in Safi

By Ahlam Ben SagaRabat- A mother gave birth immersed in a pool of warm water in Safi on April 11, marking the first “water birth” of its kind in Morocco.Water birth is a birthing method in which the birthing mother spends the final stages of labour and delivery in a birthing pool filled with warm water. The method is said to ease stress and pain during labour, mimicking the amniotic fluid sac, where the baby has developed for nine months. The Safi patient successfully delivered her newborn in a birthing pool in the women’s clinic “Mère et Enfant Nour,” thanks to the guidance of gynaecologist, Ghita Sabra Es-souiti who shared information on this experience with Moroccan news site Media24.“Patients have always been hesitant about trying this little-known method, particularly in a small city like Safi,” she added, “this [water birth] was the first in a Moroccan hospital.”Es-souiti explained that the patient was very excited about trying water-birth, though the success of this practice warranted regular exercise, special diets, and medical follow-ups.The first documented water-birth in the world took place in France in 1805, when a mother who faced difficulties during her labor was taken to a warm bath where she soon gave birth.Today, water-birth offers many advantages to both the mother and baby: buoyancy promotes more efficient uterine contractions and improved blood circulation, reducing labor pain and increasing oxygen flow to the baby. It also allows the mother to shift and change positions smoothly. The warm water provides an environment similar to the amniotic sac for the baby, smoothing the child’s transition into the world.The water birthing method slightly raises risk of water inhalation for babies who experience stress in the birth canal, according to the British Medical Journal. Despite its minor risks, the method’s safety rate is 95 percent.Es-souiti remains a strong advocate for the water-birth method, as it reduces labour pain by 60 to 70 percent and ensures a faster delivery.The medical fee for water-birth in Morocco ranges from MAD 3,000 to MAD 6,000. read more

Business Sector Remains Largest Producer of Moroccos National Wealth

Rabat – In 2017, the financial and nonfinancial corporations contributed MAD 1063.3 billion to the gross domestic product (GDP), an increase by 4.9 percent compared to 2016.According to the High Commission for Planning (HCP), the companies created 43.4 percent of the national wealth, 14.5 percent to the gross national income, 52 percent to national savings. The sector contributed by 56 percent to investments (gross fixed capital formation).The contribution of households and non-profit institutions serving households (NPISHs) have generated 29.7 percent of the national wealth, contributed by 62.5 percent to the current gross national income, 29.3 percent of the national savings, and 25.6 percent in investments. The power of household purchasing has increased by 2.3 percent compared to 2017 when it deteriorated by 0.6 percent.Read Also: Growth of Morocco’s Economy to Decrease by 2.8% in 2018Contribution of institutional sector to the GNIThe Gross National Income Available (GNI) has, for its part, increased by 4.7 percent  in 2017, reaching MAD 1124.8 billion. The improvement in GNI is due to an “increase in gross disposable income of 6.9 percent for general government, 4.2 percent for households and NPISHs, and 3.2 percent for corporations (financial and non-financial).” The business sector, which includes financial and nonfinancial corporations, is the largest producer of the national wealth and has showed a slight improvement in terms of  contribution to the national output. Its contributions improved from 43.1 percent in 2016 to 43.4 percent in 2017. The contribution of households and NPISHs, making up 29.7 percent of GDP,  was up by 0.4 percent in 2017 compared to 2016.Meanwhile, general government remained at 15.4 percent of GDP, decreasing slightly by 0.5 points compared to 2016. According to HCP, the decrease was due to the stagnant wages. National savings amounted to MAD 306.9 billion in 2017 Morocco’s national savings, which currently stand at MAD 306.9 billion, improved by 6.7 percent in 2017 compared to 2016. The national savings stood at MAD 292.7 billion in 2016.Financial and nonfinancial corporations contributed 52 percent to national savings, followed by households and NPISHs with 29.3 percent, and public administrations with 18.7 percent.In the meantime, the country’s  gross fixed capital formation (GFCF) was MAD 302.12 billion in 2017, a decrease by 0.3 percent from 2016.Read Also: Morocco’s House of Representatives Adopts 2019 Finance BillA decrease in Morocco’s financing requirements“To cover financial requirements, nonfinancial corporations have always relied on bank loans. The net flow of loans granted to these corporations reached MAD 38.5 billion in 2017,” the report noted.For its part, the general government’s domestic debt has slightly declined with a net flow of MAD 24.4 billion.The nation’s financing requirement stood at MAD 39.6 billion in 2017 and represented 3.7 percent of GDP compared to 4.3 percent in 2016. The decrease is mainly due to a reduction of  MAD 7.1 billion from the financing needs of the public administrations between 2016 and 2017, and an increase in household and NPISHs’ financing capacity by MAD 1.3 billion.The increase of financing capacity extended to financial corporations by MAD 474 million.Meanwhile, the nonfinancial corporations’ financing needs gew from MAD 53.3 billion in 2016 to MAD 58.5 billion dirhams in 2017. read more

New FCC Rules Target International Robocallers

first_img The Federal Communications Commission is set to vote on yet another batch of robocall rules.Chairman Ajit Pai this week proposed a ban on malicious caller ID spoofing of text messages and international calls.“Scammers often robocall us from overseas, and when they do, they typically spoof their numbers to try and trick consumers,” Pai said in a statement.AdChoices广告So while your screen may display a seemingly legitimate phone number (complete with familiar local area code), the phone call could be coming from anywhere in the world.“Call center fraudsters often pretend to be calling from trusted organizations and use pressure tactics to steal from Americans,” Pai added.Since 2009, the Truth in Caller ID Act has prohibited the transmission of misleading or inaccurate caller ID information with the intent to defraud, cause harm, or wrongly obtain anything of value.But the legislation does not currently cover text messaging or international calls. And Pai wants to change that.If adopted in August, his new rules would extend constraints to also protect SMS, calls originating outside the US to recipients inside the country, and one-way interconnected VoIP contact.The FCC has already received more than 35,000 complaints about caller ID spoofing in the first six months of the year. New rules would help the agency crack down on bad actors seeking unsuspecting victims overseas.“We must attack this problem with every tool we have,” Pai said. “With these new rules, we’ll close the loopholes that hamstring law enforcement when they try to pursue international scammers and scammers using text messaging.”It’s worth noting that there are some legal uses of spoofing. Like when a doctor calls a patient from their personal phone, but displays the office number. Or if a business shows its toll-free call-back number.Last month, the FCC voted to empower carriers to block unwanted calls—as long as customers are informed and can opt out.While some phone companies already offer call-blocking tools on an opt-in basis, the June ruling clarifies that they can provide them as the default, meaning everyone will benefit.consumers also have the option to sign up for even tougher services, including blocking calls from any number not on their digital contact list or other “white lists.”More on Geek.com:FTC, Law Enforcement ‘Call It Quits’ On RobocallersFCC: Don’t Be Fooled By ‘One Ring’ Robocall ScamFTC Shutters Four Groups Responsible For Billions of Illegal Robocalls Stay on target FTC, Law Enforcement ‘Call It Quits’ On RobocallersFCC Empowers Carriers to ‘Aggressively Block’ Robocalls last_img read more

How to Maybe Be Less Indecisive or Not

first_imgIf you’re like me, even the simplest decisions can make your pulse race. And when it comes to big, life-altering choices, the need to get it right (because life is short!), combined with ever-looming F.O.B.O. (fear of better options), can cause a state of near paralysis. Should you order tacos or tikka masala? Stay at the hotel with the free breakfast or the one with all the succulents? Melt into the couch or drag yourself to happy hour? While this abundance of choice is a result of incredible privilege — not everyone has the freedom to select where they work or live, or how to spend their time or money — it can still be overwhelming. As Barry Schwartz, the author of “The Paradox of Choice,” said, “I’m reasonably confident we’re operating with far, far more options in most parts of our life than we need and that serve us.”center_img Here are five strategies for spending less time agonizing over decisions and more time appreciating the results: Read the whole story: The New York Timeslast_img read more

Fortnite World Cup Champ Bugha Gets Swatted Live On Twitch

first_imgClose Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf, the winner of the Fortnite World Cup, experienced a “swatting” incident while hosting a live Twitch stream. Fortunately, one of the responding police officers recognized him and the situation was peacefully diffused.  ( Fortnite | YouTube ) Fortnite World Cup champion Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf became the latest “swatting” victim while he was streaming live on Twitch Sunday evening.The 16-year-old competitive gamer was streaming a round of Fortnite with several of his buddies when they were suddenly interrupted. Giersdorf’s dad told him that a group of police officers were there, apparently looking for him. His reaction was to ask his dad if he had just been swatted.Giersdorf disappeared from the live stream for some time, leaving his friends to wonder what was going on. When he came back to the room, he told them that he had just been swatted and that cops came into their home armed with guns.

That’s scary.”Albert Werner, a corporal at the Upper Pottsgrove Township Police Department, said they received a phone call from someone claiming to be Giersdorf.”He was Kyle and said that he shot his father multiple times with an AK-47 and had his mother tied up and bound in the garage,” Werner said.The police said the phone call appeared to have come from somewhere overseas.What Is Swatting?Swatting is defined as the act of falsely reporting a crime to the police with the intent of having armed officers showing up at the victim’s house. It is often done as a form of harassment toward the intended target. In most cases, the caller would claim that the target is armed and will hurt other people in the house.Recent cases of swatting involved popular celebrities on Twitch, likely because of the possibility that the incident will be broadcasted live through stream.Moderators of the Reddit forum “r/LivestreamFails” have already banned the posting of video clips or discussions featuring swatting to help discourage members from taking part or glorifying the stunt.A Dangerous PrankWhile swatters would claim that it is just harmless fun, the prank has already led to the death of one person in Kansas in 2017.Wichita-native Andrew Finch was shot and killed by local police officers, who were responding to a phone call regarding a possible homicide and hostage incident. The cops accidentally fired at the unarmed Finch after the man opened the door. The victim was taken to the hospital but was later pronounced dead by doctors.Finch was the apparent victim of a swatting report, though he was not really the intended target. The erroneous phone call was made by professional swatter Tyler Barriss. Barriss was supposedly recruited to do the stunt by an Ohio man who got into a heated argument with a fellow Call of Duty: WWII player.In his phone call to the Wichita police, Barriss said he had just killed one person and had two other people as hostages. However, the address that he gave to the cops was not his intended victim but rather Finch’s instead. This led to the fatal shooting.Barriss was later sentenced to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to making a false report to the police resulting in a death, cyberstalking, and conspiracy.
