Mikmaw woman is back on the water fishing for now

first_imgTrina Roache APTN National NewsMILLBROOK FIRST NATION, NS — A Mi’kmaw woman is fishing again after Canada’s Human Rights Tribunal found her band discriminated against her.But a happy ending for Stacy Lee Marshall Tabor is still up in the air. At the same time the Millbrook band in Nova Scotia hired her as a deckhand, it asked the Federal Court to reverse the tribunal’s decision.Stacy Lee Marshall TaborJust the same, Tabor is relieved to finally be out on the water again after eight years.“I was so overwhelmed,” said Tabor. “The ‘I won’ factor, I did it. I’m here, missing my kids, scared at the same time, like, what do these guys on the boat think of me? I took some deep breaths and got back into the wheelhouse.”Tabor said she was denied work in the Millbrook First Nation Fishery because she’s a woman.Last May, the tribunal agreed. It found Tabor’s situation reflects a larger discriminatory attitude towards “the place of women in the community, namely that they should stay home with their kids.”At the beginning of July, Tabor headed out to fish snow crab.“All she had to do was apply,” said Millbrook band manager Alex Cope. “She never really did that before. When she did, she got the job.”Tabor agreed that in recent years she had given up and not applied. She added that back when she was trying to get work on a boat, there was no formal hiring process.Prior to 2007, Tabor did work at various times as a deckhand and First Mate. She was a qualified captain, but was denied job opportunities and advancement in the fishery. The tribunal found the band ignored or downplayed Tabor’s experience and pointed to systemic sex discrimination as the cause.The band has asked the Federal Court of Appeal to review the decision.No one at the Millbrook band would comment, instead that to its lawyer.“The tribunal simply got it wrong,” said Gavin Giles, a lawyer for the Millbrook Band. “It overstated the importance of some evidence and largely ignored other evidence.”“We say Ms. Tabor was not discriminated against,” said Giles. “And that the band didn’t systemically discriminate against women with respect to employment opportunities.”Giles said the band wants the decision either overturned or a new hearing altogether.Read original story on Stacy Lee Marshall Tabor here: Mi’kmaw woman wins sex discrimination case against Nova Scotia bandTabor is not surprised. “They’ve been fighting me tooth and nail for the last several years, this is their last chance.”There is still another decision expected soon from the tribunal on whether the band retaliated against Tabor because of her human rights complaint.In addition, the band has yet to come to the table to negotiate damages over Tabor’s loss of employment. Giles said that process may be put aside until the federal court hears the appeal. He expects a date to be set in the fall.Tabor wants the band to pay for her retraining. Her Captain’s licence has expired. For now, she wants to work.“Just hoping I can feed my family,” said Tabor. “They want bikes, school clothes, put some money away for Christmas. I don’t want to struggle like I have over the years. When I do get my cheque, I just want to be able to buy my kids the things that they’ve been wanting for so many years.”troache@aptn.calast_img read more

Ambition transformation active citizenship COP24 looks to next years big UN Climate

“The Summit will focus on delivering three key outcomes: raising real ambition; transformative action in the real economy; and an unprecedented citizen and youth mobilization,” said the UN Secretary-General, speaking to a room full of reporters and change-makers attending the 24th Conference of the Parties (COP24) of the UN Climate Change Convention (UNFCCC).Scheduled for 23 September 2019 at UN headquarters in New York, the event aims to galvanize support for urgent climate action at the highest political levels. “We are holding the event during the high-level week of the UN General Assembly to ensure we have as many heads of State and Heads of Government as possible in attendance,” he explained.The UN General Assembly usually attracts well over 100 national leaders to discuss and set the global agenda for the following year. “The outcomes of the summit will be your outcomes,” stressed Mr. Guterres who invited “all governments, businesses, sources of finance – public and private – and civil society organizations to join in the preparatory process.”Asked by a reporter if the UN was planning to engage in dialogue with fossil fuel producers in the oil, gas and coal industry, he noted that interactions have already started and although “the dialogue with the industry is sometimes difficult and complex,” these businesses were increasingly recognizing the need to switch and develop renewable energy strategies.The Summit will focus on driving action in six areas: transition to renewable energy; funding of climate action and carbon pricing; reducing emissions from industry; using nature as a solution; sustainable cities and local action; and climate change resilience.Last month, in order to lead the way to the Summit, the UN chief appointed Luis Alfonso de Alba as his Special Envoy. Also present in Katowice for COP24, he explained that one of his highest priorities in the coming months will be strong and deep engagement with each and every party to the UN Climate Change Convention, as well as other stakeholders, to raise ambition.“The intention is not to have a negotiated outcome, but rather to incentivise highest level participation, to be very selective in what goes to the Summit in terms of ambition and innovation… and then have a summary of the discussions during the meeting itself,” said Ambassador de Alba. Paving the way, a special session of the UN General Assembly will take place in March. read more

Matheney brings work ethic to OSU

The presence of senior tackle Don Matheney is far less intimidating than his 6-foot, 300-pound frame initially suggests. Instead, Matheney is soft-spoken and undeniably optimistic. Before he enrolled at Ohio State, Matheney was enrolled at the College of Holy Cross. There he endured 40-plus hours of homework a week to meet the demands of a Holy Cross athlete. Matheney contributed his first two seasons as a Crusader, but suffered a season-ending injury during his sophomore season transferred to OSU for his junior season after tuition increased at Holy Cross. Coming from a school with an enrollment of 2,900 to the 55,000 at OSU has been a huge change, but one that Matheney appreciates. “There is less one-on-one time with the teachers, but I really like it: the classes, the environment, the atmosphere.” Classes have been Matheney’s main focus since he transferred, as he was not eligible to compete his first season as a Buckeye. Per NCAA rules, as a transfer student-athlete, Matheney was required to sit out his junior season. His senior season was his first opportunity to help the Buckeyes on the defensive line. These events have only fueled Matheney’s optimism, however. When asked how he stays even-keeled despite what is required of him as a student-athlete, he simply responds, “I don’t even think about it … I just do what I have to do.” Not only does he do what he has to do, he does more. As he strives to complete a history of art degree along with a computer science degree, he does the work required to make an impact for the Buckeyes, on and off the field. In 2009, Scout.com reported the OSU football team had a 62 percent graduation rate. With a genuine desire to be a Buckeye, a motivated attitude to graduate and a humbling presence, Matheney will increase the number of OSU’s graduating athletes and better the reputation OSU’s athletic department holds so dear. read more

Epidémie dhépatite A liée à la consommation de tomates séchées

first_imgEpidémie d’hépatite A liée à la consommation de tomates séchéesFrance – Cinquante-cinq personnes réparties sur dix-huit départements ont été touchées par une épidémie d’hépatite A. D’après l’enquête, elle aurait pour origine la consommation de tomates séchées en provenance de Turquie.L’Institut de veille sanitaire (InVS) indique que les Hautes-Pyrénées, les Pyrénées-Atlantiques et le Lot sont les départements les plus touchés par la maladie virale, avec dix-neuf cas pour les Pyrénées et quinze pour le Lot. Vingt-sept personnes ont dû être hospitalisées suite à l’apparition de symptômes entre le 20 novembre 2009 et le 5 février 2010. L’InVS indique cependant que “l’évolution a été favorable pour tous”. Les patients ont tous rapporté avoir consommé une grande quantité de tomates séchées au cours des deux à six semaines précédant l’apparition des symptômes (durée d’incubation). Les aliments incriminés se trouvaient dans des sandwichs et des salades achetées dans des sandwicheries. D’après l’enquête, elles avaient été importées de Turquie et distribuées entre octobre 2009 et février 2010.  Si cela s’avère être juste, l’épidémie ne concernerait qu’un seul lot de tomates séchées surgelées, le risque n’existerait donc plus. Cependant, l’InVS rappelle que l’hépatite est une maladie virale qui peut être transmise par contact, d’où l’importance d’un lavage régulier des mains. Il s’agit du deuxième cas d’épidémie d’hépatite A de ce type dans le monde. La première avait touché 240 personnes en 2009 et concernait l’Australie. Les doutes s’étaient également concentrés sur la consommation de tomates séchées. Chaque année en France, environ 1.500 cas de personnes infectées par l’hépatite A sont recensés dans le cadre du dispositif de déclaration obligatoire mis en place en 2005. Le 3 mars 2010 à 17:26 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Macaus DICJ reminds casino operators to closely watch junkets amid online gambling

first_img Suncity Group looking to develop new resort hotel in Okinawa, Japan after US$10 million land purchase Macau gaming regulator, the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau (DICJ), met with representatives of the SAR’s six concessionaires on Wednesday to remind them of their duty to closely monitor the activities of junket partners.The meeting followed the publication of an article earlier this week by an affiliate of state-owned news agency Xinhua alleging that leading Macau VIP operator Suncity Group was offering online and proxy betting to players who gambled in its junket rooms. Suncity has vehemently denied those allegations. JW Marriott at Galaxy Macau named venue and Galaxy Entertainment Group named Venue Sponsor for 2019 Asian Gaming Power 50 Black Tie Gala Dinner 300-seat cap revealed for 2019 Asian Gaming Power 50 Gala Dinner at Galaxy Macau RelatedPosts Load More In a Thursday statement, the DICJ said it had urged Macau’s concessionaires to closely supervise the junket promoters providing services in their casinos while reminding them that online and phone betting remained illegal. It added that if instances of online or phone betting were discovered, the DICJ must be notified immediately.Any such instances would “affect the suitability of Macau’s gaming promoters,” the DICJ said in what appears to be a threat to strip junkets of their license to operate.Inside Asian Gaming has contacted all six concessionaires for comment, with MGM China stating it “strongly condemns and will not accept any illegal online gaming activities carried out, in or from any of our properties in Macau SAR.”As previously reported by IAG, Suncity Group has issued a statement denying the allegations made against it and reserving its right to take legal action.Suncity currently operates 17 VIP clubs in Macau and 14 in overseas countries such as the Philippines, Vietnam, Cambodia, Korea and Australia.last_img read more

South Peninsula students study STEM subjects through ANSEP

first_imgWomen and Alaska Natives are underrepresented in the STEM fields, but two south peninsula girls are breaking barriers before even leaving high school. They are learning about— science, technology, engineering and mathematics —at University of Alaska Anchorage this summer. The girls are participating in the Alaska Native Science and Engineering Program, or ANSEP, five-week Acceleration Academy.Listen nowNikolaevsk School sophomore Chelsea Johnson drafts a computer generated model of an object that her group is growing with fungi during a STEM lab.(Photo Courtesy of ANSEP)Nikolaevsk School sophomore Chelsea Johnson says ANSEP’s Acceleration Academy is not only fun, it helps her get ahead.“I think that it is great that I am able to get college credit as a sophomore,” said Johnson.The 15-year-old is participating in ANSEP’s Acceleration Academy with about 60 other students from around the state. Johnson says the program allows her to explore subjects not available at her school.“Honestly, it is one of the best opportunities I can see for myself. At Nikolaevsk, there aren’t very many students looking to even go to college, so a program like this really helps me open my eyes. I was introduced to it by my principal and he thought it would be a great idea for me because I was really interested in math and the STEM fields,” said Johnson.She says the hands-on, collaborative learning approach brings subjects to life.Johnson got interested in STEM subjects as a seventh-grader when she participated in one of ANSEP’s middle school academies. Now she’s hoping to narrow her interests.“That’s what I’m hoping ANSEP can do for me, help me figure out what I want to get into exactly. I probably will want to become some kind of engineer and definitely in the STEM fields,” said Johnson.ANSEP Regional Director Michael Ulroan says the Acceleration Academy sets students on the path toward STEM careers, since they take classes for both high school and university credit.ANSEP started in 1995 as a scholarship program for university students and has evolved into much more — with programs for students starting at sixth grade and continuing on through high school, undergraduate and graduate degree programs up to the doctorate level.Ulroan, Cup’ik originally from Chevak, a small community in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta of Southwest Alaska, is an alumni of the program. He studied civil engineering and now works for ANSEP while simultaneously pursuing a master’s degree in engineering management.One of the most important aspects of the program, he says, are the STEM labs, where students work in groups and engage in hands-on activities focused on real-life challenges that professionals might find in the field.“So for example, students will be participating in a water treatment STEM lab where students will learn the chemistry and the engineering about how water systems treat and filtrate water for our rural villages in Alaska,” said Ulroan.The activities are designed around teamwork, says Ulroan, and geared toward building positive connections between students from across the state.ANSEP’s objective is to effect systemic change in the hiring patterns of Alaska Natives in science and engineering by placing students on a career path to leadership.Homer High School Senior Eryn Gillam holds a motorcar that she and her group designed during a STEM lab.(Photo Courtesy of ANSEP)Johnson — the sophomore from Nikolaevsk —is Alaska Native, Yup’ik but ANSEP is open to all students, including Homer High School senior Eryn Gillam.The 16-year-old has been participating in ANSEP programs since middle school and says she keeps coming back because she can’t get the classes she needs to pursue the college studies she’s interested in.So far this year, Gillam has completed a motorcar lab, a chemistry lab where she made soap, and she is currently working on a geology lab focused on solving coastal erosion problems in Alaska. She says the program has made her sure that she wants a career in a STEM field.“I’m either interested in going into biomedical engineering or becoming an educator and doing work similar to what people at ANSEP do,” said Gillam.Besides getting to take classes that wouldn’t be available to her at Homer High, Gillam says she enjoys connecting with other students.“One of the other things I like about ANSEP is the community aspect of it. It’s really amazing to come up here and be surrounded by a bunch of other kids with similar interests to me, because in Homer, although there are kids interested in STEM and stuff, sometimes it’s hard to find kids who you connect with in the same way in terms of interest,” said Gillam.Johnson and Gillam are in their third week of the Acceleration Academylast_img read more

Sony TVs show highend color via quantum dot tech

first_img Citation: Sony TVs show high-end color via quantum dot tech (2013, January 15) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-01-sony-tvs-high-end-quantum-dot.html “By integrating QD Vision’s “Color IQ” optical component with Sony’s unique display technologies, our Bravia television sets achieve significantly wider color gamut, that provides a far more natural and vivid viewing experience,” said Masashi Imamura, President, Home Entertainment and Sound Business Group, of Sony, in a press statement. QD Vision’s technology works with major LCD applications, including LCD TVs, LCD monitors and mobile displays. The technology harnesses the unique light-emitting properties of quantum dots, which is a class of nanomaterials. The approach used by QD Vision increases the range of colors that an LCD television can display by about 50 percent, allowing for purer colors. QD Vision describes itself as a nanomaterials product company delivering advanced display and lighting solutions, and it has been working to commercialize the technology advances it made at MIT some years ago. Its edge is as, in its words, “the only quantum dot company solely focused on displays and lighting.” The co-founders have worked on their technology along with scientific advisors, MIT professors Vladimir Bulovic and Moungi Bawendi, who the company said ” is considered the father of quantum dot technology.” Bawendi’s work has been focused on uses for quantum dots as alternatives to fluorescent organic dyes and proteins for labeling, imaging, and monitoring biological systems and for better understanding and battling cancer.Technology Review, explaining how QD Vision technology translates into a Sony TV viewing experience, noted how in LCD televisions, each pixel is illuminated from behind by a white backlight, and different colors are created by changing the amount of light allowed to pass through three different filters. QD Vision’s technology eliminates the white backlight and uses quantum dots to enhance the backlight. It starts with a conventional blue LED, which produces pure blue light. The blue light stimulates two kinds of quantum dots that emit pure green and pure red. This document is subject to copyright.

Quantum-dot LED screens may soon rival OLEDs and LCDs (Phys.org)—Sony’s Bravia LCD TVs, in selected models, have incorporated quantum dot technology to boost sales of these high-end televisions by featuring exceptionally high-end color. The technology is from the Massachusetts-based company, QD Vision, and that technology involves nanoscale particles known as quantum dots. They are to significantly improve color viewing for the new Sony TVs.center_img Explore further © 2013 Phys.org Color IQ promo last_img read more

Quebec director Denis Villeneuve may not have received an Oscar nomination for “Blade Runner 2049,” but this weekend he could get a similar trophy across the pond. THE CANADIAN PRESS/AP, Shizuo Kambayashi A look at the Canadians up for BAFTAs this weekendcenter_img TORONTO – Quebec director Denis Villeneuve may not have received an Oscar nomination for “Blade Runner 2049,” but this weekend he could get a similar trophy across the pond.Villeneuve is nominated for best director for the sci-fi sequel going into Sunday’s British Academy Film Awards, a.k.a. the BAFTAs.He’s among several Canadians in the running for BAFTAs this year. Here are some others:J. MILES DALE“The Shape of Water” is up for a leading 12 BAFTAs, including best film for director Guillermo del Toro and Dale, the Toronto producer.The two are also nominated for a best-picture Oscar for the film, which has a total of 13 Academy Award nominations.Dale and del Toro first worked together on the 2013 film “Mama” after meeting through “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” director Edgar Wright.About halfway through shooting the horror drama series “The Strain” together, del Toro told Dale about “The Shape of Water,” which stars Sally Hawkins as a mute janitor who falls in love with an amphibian creature, played by Doug Jones.Dale said del Toro had already been working on the merman suit a couple of years before they started shooting the film, which was shot in Hamilton and Toronto.“He knew that in a love story when the leading man is the fish that he better be sexy, so he’d been working for a while on the suit.”LUIS M. SEQUEIRAThe Toronto-based costume designer is nominated for creating the 1960s-era outfits for the characters in “The Shape of Water.” He also has an Oscar nomination for the film.Sequeira curated clothing from five different cities — scouring rental houses, vintage stores, rag houses, garages and flea markets.He also worked with del Toro on “Mama” and “The Strain” and said the director understands the importance of costumes.“One of his sayings is once we move into a closeup, costumes are the set dressing for the actor’s face. So they’re uber-important.”OTHER TALENT ON “THE SHAPE OF WATER”Several other Canadians also have BAFTA nods for their work on the dark romance.They include Edmonton-born Kevin Scott, who is nominated along with several others for special visual effects. The team hails from Toronto digital studio Mr. X.Glen Gauthier, who was raised in Peterborough, Ont., shares in the nomination for best sound, and is also up for an Oscar.And fellow Oscar nominees Paul Austerberry, Jeff Melvin and Shane Vieau are in the running for a BAFTA for best production design.OTHER TALENT ON “BLADE RUNNER”Montreal-born Donald Mowat shares in a nod for best makeup and hair on “Blade Runner,” while Vancouver-born Dennis Gassner is co-nominated for production design.Gassner said he got inspiration from the architecture in Budapest, where the film was shot.When he first met Villeneuve in Montreal, he asked him: “‘If you could explain the movie in one word, how would you explain it?’ and he said, ‘Brutality,’ and then he added ‘chaos’ to that.”Villeneuve was “extremely pragmatic” as they worked to build off the original “Blade Runner,” while also creating something unique with its own signature, Gassner said.“It wasn’t a movie about technology. It was about style, it was about the emotional content of who this society was and where this society was going and so on.”CHRISTOPHER PLUMMERIt seemed an impossible task, but Plummer pulled it off with aplomb.The Toronto-born acting legend is nominated for an Oscar and a BAFTA for his supporting role in “All the Money in the World” — a project he took on at the 11th hour to replace Kevin Spacey.Spacey was erased from the project following allegations of sexual misconduct. Director Ridley Scott shot Plummer in the role of billionaire J. Paul Getty a mere six weeks before theatrical release.last_img read more
