American pipeline protesters demonstrate outside Trudeau meetings

first_imgSAN FRANCISCO – Opposition to Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline has followed Justin Trudeau to sunny California, where protesters demonstrated Friday outside the hotel where the prime minister was holding meetings with top state officials.About a dozen protesters made up of local climate change activists held signs demanding Trudeau reverse his decision on the project, chanting anti-pipeline slogans from across the street.Three of the protesters briefly got inside the hotel and demonstrated with their backs up against the wall directly outside the room where Trudeau met with California Gov. Jerry Brown.Trudeau has given no indication he’s willing to back down from the project, pledging to get it built one way or another.One of the protesters, Vanessa Butterworth, said Trudeau must to back up his talk about protecting the environment and climate by rejecting the Kinder Morgan pipeline.“If you want to be a real climate leader, you’re going to have to live up to your Paris agreement and say no to Kinder Morgan or the communities are going to shut it down,” said Butterworth, who is from Toronto.The message was different than the one Trudeau received inside the stately hotel first from Brown, and then his deputy Gavin Newsom, who is a favourite to replace Brown at the end of the Democrat’s term.During staged photo-ops, Brown said his state and Canada had much to do while the White House was “temporarily missing in action in terms of climate action.” Newsom thanked Trudeau for his leadership “at a time when that’s not lost on many of us in the political sphere out here.”California and more than a dozen other states have moved ahead with carbon pricing schemes, including a cap-and-trade system with Ontario and Quebec. Brown said he wants to forge other agreements with various provinces, and push for growth in zero-emission vehicles.Tensions around the development of the controversial $7.4-billion pipeline project escalated last week when the B.C. government announced plans for more consultations on oil spill readiness and a limit on increased diluted bitumen shipments until it can be confident of response measures.Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer asked for an emergency debate on the pipeline impasse, but deputy Speaker Bruce Stanton told him the issue does not meet the criteria.“The House of Commons should discuss all options in order to put an end to this crisis,” Scheer said in French in the House of Commons.Earlier during question period, Kim Rudd, the parliamentary secretary for the minister of natural resources, said Canada won’t let B.C. kill off the pipeline.“Any decision by the B.C. government to limit the flow of bitumen through the pipeline would be outside the province’s jurisdiction,” Rudd said.Protester David Turnbull, with Oil Change International, said Americans are also worried about what could happen to the waters along their western coast if Kinder Morgan is built.“The Kinder Morgan pipeline, if it was built, would increase the tanker traffic along the west coast, including in the United States along Seattle’s bay as well,” Turnbull said.“We’re concerned that the Kinder Morgan would both imperil our climate and also imperil our coast lines as well.”last_img read more

US durable goods orders down 37 per cent in January

first_imgWASHINGTON – New orders for long-lasting manufactured goods fell 3.7 per cent in January, the biggest decline since July 2017, following two months of increases that reflected strength in the country’s industry.The Commerce Department said Tuesday that orders were depressed by a 10 per cent drop in demand for transportation equipment, a category that can bounce around from month to month. Excluding transportation, durable goods orders slipped only 0.3 per cent. Orders for defence capital goods plunged 26.3 per cent. Excluding defence, new durable goods orders fell 2.7 per cent.Overall orders in January for durable goods, which are meant to last at least three years, decreased 3.7 per cent to $239.7 billion. Orders were up 5.8 per cent for the full year 2017, the best showing in six years.American manufacturers have benefited from a pickup in global economic growth and a weaker dollar, which makes U.S. goods less expensive in foreign markets.Details:—The Commerce Department downgraded the December increase in durable goods orders to 2.6 per cent from the 2.9 per cent gain it originally reported.—January orders for computers increased 6.4 per cent after falling 4.9 per cent in December.—Machinery orders fell 0.4 per cent after gaining 0.5 per cent the previous month.last_img read more

Abdelilah Hafidi Might Miss Remaining Matches of CHAN 2018

Rabat – Injured in the first minutes of the Atlas Lions’ impressive 3-1 win over Guinea last Wednesday, playmaker Abdelilah Hafidi has been declared unfit for 10 days of play by the local team’s medical staff.This injury marks  a serious blow to the tactical game and morale of the Atlas Lions, especially considering that Achraf Bencharki, another vital playmaker,  may not  continue with the team  given his  imminent move to the Saudi El Halil squad following the tournamentHafidi suffered a muscular strain in his groin 17 minutes into the Guinea game last Wednesday., at which time he was replaced by Walid El Karti of Wydad Casablanca. Said Zkini, the leading medic with the local Lions said that Hafidi would not be able to play for at least ten consecutive days. As a result, the local playmaker won’t feature in the upcoming game against Sudan this on Sunday, which will determine the tournament leaders. Hafidi will also be quarter-final play. Should Morocco reach the semifinals, Hafidi could return for the local Lions’ prospective final triumph.Despite this setback, coach Jamal Sellami, sees no reason to panic, as he believes that every single player must feel integral to the success of the team if the squad is to go far in the tournament.“Everyone is important, but no one is indispensable”, Sellami concluded. read more

Two to stand trial in childs death

More than two years after the death of a three-year-old Six Nations boy, his mother and her partner have been committed for trial on manslaughter charges.Madeline Lee Froman, 26, and John Paul Smoke, Jr., 28, both of Six Nations, were committed to stand trial in the death of Torrence VanEvery following a preliminary hearing that went on for 13 days in March and April.Six Nations police and the OPP began investigating the child’s death after being called to a medical complaint at a home at 792 Mohawk Rd. at about 7:20 p.m. on March 6, 2017.Police said the boy was unresponsive and had no vital signs. He was taken to Brantford General Hospital and pronounced dead at 8:16 p.m.An OPP spokesperson said it took until August 2017 for the OPP to lay the charges against Froman and Smoke because of the wait to obtain autopsy results. At the time, Six Nations Police Chief Glenn Lickers said the incident was “very traumatic” for all those involved in the investigation.“It is my hope that we can heal and come closer together as a community to help protect all of our children,” Lickers said in a news release.Just two days before the police charged Froman and Smoke, the house at 792 Mohawk Rd. was partially destroyed by what Six Nations police called a “suspicious fire” that was then investigated by the Ontario Fire Marshal’s office.Six Nations Fire Chief Matthew Miller said the investigation ended with an “undetermined” classification.“We don’t know if it was arson or accidental due to the extent of the damage,” said Miller, noting that the kitchen area was destroyed in the fire.Froman and Smoke will appear in court later to determine a date for their trial.Torrence is survived by his father, lacrosse player Torrey VanEvery, who made his National Lacrosse League debut a month after his son’s death, sister Sophiah, and an extensive extended family.SGamble@postmedia.com @EXPSGamble read more

So far so good for Shayla Cooper and Ohio State womens basketball

Sophomore forward Shayla Cooper (32) attempts a shot during a game against Iowa on Feb. 21 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 100-82.Credit: Ryan Cooper / Lantern photographerDecember brought a joyful celebration season for the Ohio State women’s basketball team, even before Christmas rolled around.Dec. 22 marked the first time 6-foot-2 sophomore transfer Shayla Cooper took the court dressed in the scarlet and gray.The 96-54 drubbing of West Virginia was a turning point in the season for OSU as Cooper became the root of much improvement to follow.“We have gotten more tough rebounds and our post defense has been better since her addition,” coach Kevin McGuff said of Cooper. “She is a good player and has really helped us, that’s for sure.”Cooper, who transferred from Georgetown, joined the Buckeyes last spring. NCAA regulations forced her to sit out the first 11 games this season before joining her new team on the court.“When the season started this year, I was just more anxious to play,” Cooper said. “We had a countdown, every game, it was one less until I could play.”Coming from a private Catholic school like Georgetown to a large public school like OSU has been a surprisingly easy transition for Cooper, she said, in large part because of her teammates, coaches and the great people she has met in Columbus.“It’s more about the people,” Cooper said. “The people here are way nicer than back in D.C. and the environment is just different.”Cooper attributed much of her success in making the transition to junior guard Ameryst Alston and the overall closeness of the Buckeye team.“Ameryst and I have gotten really close,” Cooper said. “She was one of my hosts when I came to visit and I could tell from just interacting with her those first couple days that she would be someone I would get close to.“We tend to laugh around all the time,” Cooper said of the team. “We get on each other and joke around a lot, but that is what makes it fun. It’s a fun, happy environment to be around.”The transition on the court has been just as easy for Cooper as it has off the court. It has been her intimidation factor and aggressive play that has lifted the Buckeye defense since she became eligible, freshman guard Kelsey Mitchell said.“When she is aggressive, it makes it easier for everybody else,” Mitchell said. “She is a dirty type of player, a trash talker. You are never going to find a person like that, let alone a player like that. I’m grateful and I’m glad to have her on the team.”McGuff said it is Cooper’s aggressive nature that has allowed the team to get better defensively because she can match up with the bigger players OSU has faced.“She gives us different options on how we want to play defensively,” McGuff said. “We put her on the bigger player because she is a little bigger and stronger and does a good job pushing opponents out of the paint.”Although she’s not the biggest at her position, Alston said she believes it’s the intimidation factor that allows Cooper to have so much success down low.“She is really strong, I think she intimidates a lot of players,” Alston said. “She is definitely someone we need.”Cooper has solidified her spot as the sixth man for the Buckeyes and unlike most players who would rather be in the starting lineup, she said she has relished the opportunity.“It’s fun,” Cooper said of her position in the OSU lineup. “My sophomore year of high school, I came off the bench, and then the next year I started. I am fine coming in as a sixth man and cleaning up everything and always knowing what I need to do.”Since her addition, OSU has gone 14-5 and secured the third seed in the upcoming Big Ten Tournament.Cooper said she believes she made the best choice of her career in coming to OSU and thinks this is just the beginning of her efforts to change the Buckeye program around.“I thought this could be my second chance in having the opportunity to change a program around,” she said. “So far, so good. I am loving every minute of it.” read more

Inside the backroom In 1995 doing things like warmups and warmdowns was

first_imgIf Crokes go all the away to St Patrick’s Day in Headquarters and this current golden generation win the club title that has eluded them so far, it could be early April before their players return to the Kerry panel.It’s no surprise then, Flanagan says, that the fitness work done at club and county level mirror each other.Especially in an amateur sport, time constraints demand it.And to those who fear that the traditional art is being sacrificed at the altar of power and physique, he has a reassuring message.I’d say there’s more ball work being done now than before, definitely in the last five years.“In the late 90s and early 00s, the idea was to get all of your strength and conditioning work done, get all those units done and then do football and get them coached.“Now the sessions are much more united – you’re doing strength work and endurance work while you’re doing skill work.“You’re using skills and the ball work to improve conditioning a lot more. There’s a big focus on that now.”Tomorrow: Dublin performance analyst Ray Boyne on the numbers game PAT FLANAGAN TELLS a story from his early days as a strength and conditioning coach with Kerry.After one game in 2004, he gathered the squad out on the pitch for a warm-down session.Later that night, Weeshie Fogarty’s radio show was inundated with calls. Why were the Kerry lads training after a match?“It was very unusual then,” Flanagan admits with a chuckle.He might well laugh. Kerry went on to win the All-Ireland under Jack O’Connor and before long, his work in the Kingdom had become a talking point.They weren’t the first county to put an increased emphasis on training smart, rather than training hard. When Flanagan arrived, the Ulster sides — Armagh and Tyrone — had already got the jump on the rest and strong-armed an advantage for themselves.But “Kerry had the footballers,” Flanagan says, “and once they caught up in terms of strength and conditioning, they were always going to be a force.”Long before that, the great IT Tralee side of the late 90s were his first great success story. Working there as a physiology lecturer, he teamed up with Val Andrews behind a team that won three straight Sigerson Cups.“In 1995, doing things like warm-ups and warm-downs was rocket science,” Flanagan remembers.“There were some very stubborn people who would not change, who thought this was all craziness and that it would all go away.“I worked in a club in Kerry and when I when I asked them to warm up, half the players refused. This was in the mid-to-late 90s.“I’d even get coaches from some of the counties ringing up because I was doing weights with the Sigerson team saying it was all bad for them, that they’d get muscle-bound. They were running around hills and up sand dunes instead. There would have been a good bit of resistance to it but over time, I suppose the success of teams with that type of training — Kerry in 2004, 05, 06 — there was more notice taken of it then.Now strength and conditioning work is a given. A modern footballer will cover upwards of seven or eight kilometres during a match, much of that in high-intensity sprints and bursts.Hectic fixture schedules and competition cross-over, particularly for top younger players, mean conditioning can be the difference between staying fit for the season and struggling with otherwise avoidable injury.It’s not an unusual to have two or three coaches working with the top county sides. The same goes for the best senior clubs and, since the introduction of the AIB All-Ireland series, some of the more ambitious intermediate and junior clubs too.This season Flanagan is working with the Laois hurlers as well as with Dr Crokes who are preparing for an All-Ireland semi final against Connacht champions Castlebar Mitchels in February.last_img read more

Vancouver Farmers Market to relocate

first_imgThe Vancouver Farmers Market is celebrating its 30th anniversary in an unexpected way — with a move.But as the market’s Executive Director Jordan Boldt describes it, it’s more of a pivot than a move.The market will keep its spot on Esther Street abutting Esther Short Park, but will relocate from West Sixth Street to West Eighth Street.Boldt said the city initially approached the market in September, following the opening of the Vancouver Waterfront Park with concerns the market would block access during the summer.With looming summer construction complicating the situation, it was decided it would be better for everyone involved if the market relocated.“The market’s perspective is obviously it’s never an easy thing to undertake, but we’re pretty optimistic,” Boldt said. “We think the new space is going to actually be better for the market.”Eighth Street does have a drawback, however. The street isn’t as wide as Sixth Street, meaning the market can’t set up three rows of vendors. Eighth Street is only wide enough for two rows.“We had to elongate the market a little bit to make up for the extra space,” he said. The market will form a “T” and move up and down Eighth Street.last_img read more

DC Gears Up for Miss Black USA Contest at UDC

first_imgBy Lauren E. Williams, Special to the AFROCurrent Miss Black USA Daphne Lee will pass on her crown this weekend during the Miss Black USA 2018 pageant in the nation’s capital.  A professional ballerina, graduate student and ambassador to the Republic of Sierra Leone, Lee previously held the title of Miss Black New Jersey before winning the historic, national competition.Unlike other pageants, Miss Black USA is a scholarship pageant focused on redefining beauty and highlighting the diversity of women of color. It was founded in 1986 to showcase Black women and support them in their pursuit of higher education.Miss Black USA, now the biggest pageant for women of color, will crown its next national queen August 12. (Courtesy Photo)“Growing up I often read about the protracted stories of African-American she-roes, and I was inspired by them to use whatever talents I had to give back,” Karen Arrington, founder and CEO of the Miss Black USA pageant, told the AFRO.  “But as I watched mainstream media I didn’t see positive images of women who looked like me. So, I thought that creating a pageant could be a great platform to celebrate the achievements of African-American women who had been disproportionately represented in mainstream media.”Today, Miss Black USA is the largest national pageant for women of color and, according to the pageant’s website, the “largest single source of scholarship funding for Black women” with more than $500,000 in scholarships awarded. Contestants range from college students and graduate students to professional women. The Maryland-based non-profit organization has also expanded to include additional competitions for teens and older women.“Miss Black USA has changed greatly since we started,” Arrington told the AFRO. “Among many things, we now have a library named in our honor at the Lower Basic Primary School in the Gambia, West Africa. Miss Black USA gets to travel there and read to students while representing our organization.”During what the organization calls her “year of service,” Miss Black USA also travels nationally for the Heart Truth campaign empowering women to take care of their heart health.Arrington continued, “Wherever there is an issue affecting our community, that’s where Miss Black USA will be.”Looking to win the 2018 title are 38 contestants from across the country, according to Arrington. They will compete in four competitions: 1) Onstage Question, 2) Talent, 3) Evening Gown, and 4) Lifestyle and Fitness.On hand to judge this year’s competition are Dr. Myla Bennett, a celebrity doctor and philanthropist seen on Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta; Thomas W. Dortch. Jr., Chairman of the Board of Directors for The National Black College Alumni Hall of Fame; and Ocielia Gibson, a former Miss Black USA, author, and speaker. The event’s host will be Stevie Baggs Jr., a former NFL athlete, who previously starred as the bachelor on WE-TVs Match Made in Heaven.Finals for the Miss Black USA 2018 pageant take place August 12 at the University of the District of Columbia.last_img read more

Mexico ruling party candidate on attack in debate

first_img“Mr. Pena Nieto, we don’t want someone who is going to hide in the bathroom of a university to solve the country’s problems,” said Vazquez Mota, candidate for the National Action Party of President Felipe Calderon.Pena Nieto denied he was hiding and said he applauded the awakening of student participation in the political process.“It’s a voice I respect,” he said.The more than two-hour debate mostly allowed the candidates to repeat their platforms and make a flood of promises to create jobs, increase salaries, improve education, lower violence and end hunger without real details.Leftist candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said he would save millions by rooting out corruption and cutting politicians’ salaries, numbers that Vazquez Mota said didn’t add up. She in turn emphasized her role as a woman and caretaker of the family and mentioned several times her support for indigenous women. Pena Nieto repeated several times that Mexicans will be able to provide for their families in the manner they deserve under his administration.“The center of my proposal is that you earn more,” he said.Little seemed to change the dynamic of the race, which Pena Nieto leads by about 13 points in most polls. Associated PressMEXICO CITY (AP) – Mexico’s ruling party candidate who is trailing in third by many polls bombarded her rivals Sunday in the second and final presidential debate with accusations that they represent a return to the country’s past of corruption and authoritarianism.Josefina Vazquez Mota accused front-runner Enrique Pena Nieto of using public funds to create a spying agency and of hiding in the bathroom from students who heckled him in a May campaign appearance that sparked a protest movement, including a demonstration that drew 90,000 people to the streets of Mexico City hours before the debate. Check your body, save your life Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates Top Stories Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family 5 things to look for when selecting an ophthalmologist More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements Sponsored Stories New high school in Mesa lets students pick career paths Comments   Share   Now all the candidates are trying to paint rivals as the most corrupt.Pena Nieto’s foes have sought to link him to two former PRI governors in the border state of Tamaulipas, one whose properties were raided by Mexican officials and the other who U.S. prosecutors allege had ties to drug cartels.Rivals also accuse Pena Nieto of paying Mexico’s giant Televisa network for favorable coverage. Both the PRI and Televisa have vehemently denied this.Two weeks ago, a leaked audio tape was released in which a Lopez Obrador supporter is heard asking businessmen for $6 million in campaign donations, which would be a violation of electoral laws. But the leaked version did not include the full conversation, in which another supporter is heard telling the businessmen that the leftist was not aware of or involved in the request.___Adriana Gomez Licon on Twitter: http://twitter.com/agomezlicon___Associated Press writer Mark Stevenson contributed to this report.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Vazquez Mota, who is the first serious female candidate to run for Mexico’s presidency, has faltered throughout the campaign. Lopez Obrador, meanwhile, has seen a slight surge in recent weeks to second place as Mexicans contemplate the return to power by Pena Nieto’s Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI, which ruled for 71 years with a combination of iron fist and corruption before being voted out in 2000.Mexican voters appear ready to kick the PAN out of office after 12 years of Vicente Fox and Calderon, who launched an assault on drug cartels and whose term has seen more than 47,000 deaths from drug violence.Negative advertising has spiked the last two weeks among all three major parties _ the PRI, the PAN and Lopez Obrador’s Democratic Revolution Party. But Vazquez Mota was most aggressive Sunday, forcing her rivals to respond.She accused Lopez Obrador, a former member of the PRI, of supporting deadly government attacks on student protesters in 1968 and 1971. Some of the demonstrators on Sunday were commemorating June 10, 1971, when pro-government agents killed at least a dozen students at a leftist political demonstration in Mexico City.Lopez Obrador said he was still in high school when the attacks happened. The fourth candidate in the debate, Gabriel Quadri of the New Alliance party, has been drawing single digits in the polls. He asked and received commitments from his rivals not to criminalize women who seek abortions, which are illegal in the country except for Mexico City.Vazquez Mota accused Quadri of being a puppet of the head of the teachers’ union, Elba Esther Gordillo, a key Mexican power broker who can make or break politicians with her support and who is criticized for the sorry state of Mexico’s public schools. “He has to ask his mommy on every idea,” she said.Analysts believe protests by young people have caused the recent slight sag in Pena Nieto’s lead. PRI officials later questioned if the hecklers at the Iberoamerican University were students and accused them of being planted by rivals. They responded by showing their student ID card across social media venues.Protesters on Sunday shouted, “Not one vote for the PRI!” and “Out with Pena!”Candidates focused on Pena Nieto in the first debate in May, accusing him of lying about his record as governor of the state of Mexico and maintaining ties to unsavory elements of the PRI, which was known for buying votes and all-out coercion to stay in power for seven decades but is also credited with building many of Mexico’s institutions and its social security safety net.
