The pair are charged with one count of second degree murder in the death of UBC sessional lecturer Leonard Dyck, and wanted for questioning in the deaths of Australian Lucas Fowler and his American Girlfriend Chynna Deese.But not all tips police have looked into have been reported to them directly.“Multiple tips of sightings have been posted to social media in the last few days and not directly reported to police.

Multiple tips of sightings have been posted to social media & NOT directly reported to police. If the tips are valid, it could create a substantial delay in the response by police. #rcmpmb— RCMP Manitoba (@rcmpmb) July 28, 2019 No new sightings of suspects.

Federal consumer agency delays report on Canadian banks sales practices

first_imgOTTAWA – A federal agency won’t be releasing the results of its review of business practices among Canada’s major banks by the end of the year, as originally anticipated.The Financial Consumer Agency of Canada announced the review in March, after the CBC reported some employees from Canada’s five biggest banks felt pressured to upsell, trick and even lie to customers to meet sales targets.All five banks have denied the claims, defending their practices and insisting that they put the needs of their clients first.FCAC commissioner Lucie Tedesco had indicated to a parliamentary committee in June that an interim report on its review would be issued by the end of 2017 and a full report in 2018.But FCAC spokeswoman Lynne Santerre says that the commission has since determined that the better approach would be to issue one report in the first quarter of 2018.She says that to date, FCAC supervision staff has been reviewing thousands of consumer complaints, interviewing over 500 bank directors and bank personnel, analyzing volumes of bank documents and examining the potential impact of sales targets and incentive programs on consumers.last_img read more

Court fines independent Russian magazine 335000

first_imgMOSCOW — A Moscow court has ruled to fine an independent magazine $335,000, a move seen by Kremlin critics as retribution for reporting that is critical of the government.The Tverskoy Court on Tuesday upheld last month’s hearing, meaning that the New Times magazine will have to pay the crippling fine for failing to notify authorities on time of receiving foreign funding.The New Times’ editor-in-chief has mounted a crowdfunding campaign and managed to raise over $370,000 to pay the fine, which had threatened to force the publication to shut down.The fine is believed to be the first measure taken in line with recent tough legislation that aims to fight against what the Kremlin sees as foreign influence in Russian media.The Associated Presslast_img read more

Half of all health facilities in wartorn Yemen now closed medicines urgently

Day and night, dozens of kidney patients crowd the corridors of the Dialysis Centre in Hudaydah, Yemen, waiting for their sessions. Photo: WHO Yemen The long-term impact of the conflict is also having detrimental effects on the country’s food system and infrastructure.Malnutrition is on the rise with close to half-a-million children suffering from severe acute malnutrition, with one out of every two children under the age of five stunted in their growth. This is “a 200 per cent increase since 2014 – when that number was at 160,000 – raising the risk of famine,” said Christophe Boulierac, spokesperson for the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF). UNICEF estimates that every 10 minutes, at least one child dies in Yemen as a result of preventable causes such as malnutrition, diarrhoea or respiratory tract infections.In addition to malnutrition, children face malaria and dengue fever, both of which have been on the rise in the past two months. An outbreak of cholera has been contained, Mr. Jasarevic said.WHO, UNICEF and other UN agencies and their partners are providing aid but resources are stretched. For 2017, for example, the health cluster appealed for $322 million. Pervasive malnutrition, shuttered schools jeopardize Yemen’s future generations Meanwhile, Humanitarian coordinator in Yemen, Jamie McGoldrick, denounced a raft of atrocities taking place in Yemen, including reportedly at least 1,540 children killed; 2,450 children injured; and over 1,550 children recruited to fight or to perform military related duties. Moreover, Hundreds of people have been killed in mosques, markets, funeral wakes, schools and hospitals. At least 7,719 people have been killed and 42,922 injured since 19 March 2015, the UN World Health Organization (WHO) reported, but the actual numbers are believed to be higher.“More than half of all health facilities are closed or functioning only partially,” Tarik Jasarevic, a WHO spokesperson, told journalists in Geneva. Mr. Jasarevic, who was in Yemen in February, said that at least 274 health facilities had been damaged or destroyed as a result of the conflict, and some 44 health workers either killed or injured. He noted also a shortage of medicines and specialized staff, such as surgeons, many of whom have fled the country.“For more than six months, health facilities in Yemen had received no financial support to cover operational costs and staff salaries,” the spokesperson said. As a result, health facilities such as the chemo-dialysis centre in Hudaydah, is on the brink of ceasing operations, as there was no more fuel to run the obsolete chemo-dialysis machines, Mr. Jasarevic noted. Without the facility 600 people with kidney failure would likely die. Patients in Yemen still struggle to access health services, including surgical care, due to critical shortages of specialized health staff amid a financial crisis and no operational budget for public health facilities. Photo: WHO/Sadeq Al-Wesabi “With malnutrition amongst children at an all-time high and at least two million children out of school, the conflict and its consequences is jeopardizing future generations in Yemen,” he said, explaining that more than 11 per cent of Yemen’s entire population has been forced to move from their homes in search of safety and livelihoods. One million of these people have sought to return to their areas of origin only to find destruction and lack of opportunities to re-start their lives.Stressing that no humanitarian response can meet the increasing needs that the war is causing, Mr. McGoldrick said: “The people of Yemen have suffered long enough […] Only peace can end the suffering and I continue to call on all the parties to return to the negotiating table and to make effective their responsibilities to civilians across Yemen.” AUDIO: With famine looming in Yemen, the country is “on a knife’s edge” and in desperate need of cash from international donors to avert disaster, said Jamie McGoldrick, the UN Resident Coordinator in the country. read more

Thursdays Daily Brief Ebola in DR Congo malnutrition in Laos baby health

Ensuring the safe and dignified burial of people who have died from Ebola virus in the Democratic Republic of the Congo – regarded as a key way to prevent disease transmission – is under threat from a lack of funding, a key UN-partner said on Thursday.  Amid an uptick in the number of infections in north Kivu and Ituri provinces, the Red Cross says it has just two weeks’ worth of funding to support its burial teams. Since the start of the latest Ebola epidemic in DRC last August, the virus has claimed more than 1,100 lives and infected 1,671 people, making it the second deadliest outbreak to date. Twenty per cent of those cases occurred in the last three weeks, according to DRC authorities, who are grappling with insecurity and attacks on health centres by armed groups in north-eastern DRC. Highlighting the value of the work of the burial teams, Emanuele Capobianco, Director of Health and Care at the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), explained that in the 2014-2016 Ebola outbreak in West Africa, up to 80 per cent of people were infected during unsafe burials. Faced with a US$16 million shortfall, IFRC has called on the international community to urgently increase its investment in Ebola response, before the outbreak escalates further. Healthy diets vital for progress in Laos say UN food agencies  ‘Time for action is now’ senior UN peacekeeping official says, urging more support for Sahel force Fiji’s strong traditions of community and social responsibility, and its “symbiotic relationship” with its surroundings, has made its people “natural global leaders on climate and the environment”, United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres told the nation’s Parliament on Thursday.“Fiji has taken on the sceptics and the deniers” in a loud and clear voice, he said, “and the world is listening”.The Secretary-General outlined that Fiji was the first small island State to preside over the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and in 2017, became the first emerging market to issue a sovereign “green bond”, dedicated to environmental conservation. Find our full coverage here. Good nutrition depends not only on raising awareness about healthy foods and choices, but also on sustainable systems of delivery. With that in mind, UN agencies have been working with the Government and population of the Lao People’s Democratic Republic – or Laos as it’s commonly known – to achieve Zero Hunger, with initiatives that help farming families’ lives and livelihoods.  The heads of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the World Food Programme (WFP) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) ended a three-day visit on Thursday, with a call for greater investment in nutrition, after seeing first-hand the impacts of their joint programmes.  WFP Executive Director David Beasley said that he “could feel the sense of optimism from people in the communities” and that the work being done “helps create a better future for schoolchildren, for farmers and for families throughout the country.” Laos has made good progress over the past twenty years in reducing poverty and hunger, but malnutrition remains an obstacle to the country’s aim of becoming a middle-income country.Countries must up their game to reduce low birth weights, warns UN-backed report Many countries need to invest more and take greater action to reduce the number of babies born with low birth weights which put their health at risk, urges a United Nations-backed report released on Wednesday.Around one-in-seven babies worldwide weighed less than 5.5 pounds, or 2.5 kilogrammes at birth, according to latest data from 2015.The Lancet Global Health research paper was developed by experts from the World Health Organization (WHO), UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, which not only reveals that more than 20 million babies that year were born with a low birthweight, but that 80 per cent of the world’s 2.5 million low weight newborns die every year, because they are either pre-term and/or small for gestational age.Find our full story here.UN chief lauds Fijians as ‘natural global leaders’ on climate, environment, hails ‘symbiotic relationship’ with land and sea The five-year-old force working to stabilize Africa’s Sahel has shown great potential, but needs more support from the international community to reach full operational capacity, a top UN peacekeeping official said on Thursday, calling for enhanced political and economic solutions to help tackle the strife-torn region’s myriad challenges.Dubbed the ‘G-5 Sahel’ after the group of countries that comprise it (Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania and Niger) the Joint Force, proposed by the African Union and backed by the UN Security Council, aims to bolster coordination to “neutralize” armed groups in the region and strengthen Cooperation on economic development and security.“The G-5 Sahel has taken additional steps to operationalize the joint force following the devastating terrorist attack on its headquarters in June,” Bintou Keita, UN Assistant Secretary-General for Africa, told the Security Council today.Our full report is here.Fears over rising Ebola infections in DR Congo, lack of funding for safe burials  Listen to or download our audio News in Brief for 16 May 2019 on SoundCloud: read more

Rutenka could lose the Spanish citizenship

Belarus handballSiarhei Rutenka ← Previous Story Kim Andersson won’t be ready for WC 2011? Next Story → MKB Veszprem wins in Szeged The Barcelona player, Siarhei Rutenka (29), is faced with the possibility to lose his Spanish citizenship.  The problem is that the Spanish federation that gave him the passport in 2008, had him in the future plans for the national team. In 2008 in Beijing he couldn’t play for Spain, as it was too early after leaving the Slovenian national team, but the Spaniards were ready to wait for the time when he is allowed to play. However, Rutenka decided before the qualifications for the European Championship 2012 in Serbia, that he will play for Belarus, and he did so.Rutenka himself said that he had no idea that this could pose a problem and perhaps the losing of the spanish citizenship. He also added that “he always wanted to play for Belarus, and this happened” and that this is more of a private matter, and should be left alone on this subject.Apart from him, a Spanish nationality in 2008 was also granted to the goalkeeper Arpad Sterbik, then both players of Ciudad Real. Now, the Spanish federation is angry at the move of Rutenka, and might ask the “revoking of passport”. read more

Political Corruption Financial Greed cited as reason for SIPT trials by Mitchell

first_img Related Items:andrew mitchell, clayton greene, michael misick, Sipt SIPT Opening Statement brings anticipation for evidence, Proceedings resume today Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 19 jan 2016 – No words were minced by Andrew Mitchell, QC as he lunged into the reasons for the Special Investigation and Prosecution Team cases, which have been looming since 2009. The attorney for the SIPT on Monday explained bluntly that “This case is about political corruption and financial greed.”Mitchell added that, “The monies received by the Ministers were in no sense monies that could be attributed to the work of honest servants of the people whom they were elected to represent.”The unforgiving criminal charges and raw statements came at the opening of the proceedings which continue now in 2016, with Justice Paul Harrison presiding as both judge and jury. The cases against nine, including former Premier, Michael Misick; former Health Minister, Lillian Boyce; former Lands Minister, McCallister Hanchell; former Works Minister, Jeffrey Hall; former House Speaker, Clayton Greene and former Deputy Premier and Finance Minister, Floyd Hall is a monster of a trial with hefty charges, which have the potential to put these individuals in prison for decades.Mitchell will spend some days as he lays out the case which he explained is fueled by an alleged conspiracy for the nine people charged to, and I quote again, “enrich themselves and/or their families, the defendants undermined, ignored and usurped almost all of the Country’s institutions designed to ensure and preserve good governance.”Mitchell added that, ‘a number of witnesses will be called to explain how the Government of the Islands should function’ making it known that his case is built on nine land deals or developments which were negotiated during the Misick years. Andrew Mitchell shared that he will illustrate, “the way that the political establishment was prepared to abuse their responsibilities to the electorate by, in effect, treating as their own that precious resource: the land.”Names like Mario Hoffman and J&T Banka and the revelations linked to the American Express, Black cards all resurface as the country once again braces to hear the alleged vainglorious details of the accused. Meanwhile, Michael Misick & the others have fought the proceedings and Misick has directly told media that he is a defendant in protest.

Apples iPhone sales tanked Now all eyes are on whats ahead

first_img $999 The company had raised a red flag in November, when it said it would stop disclosing how many units it sells each quarter.On Tuesday, investors will get a more-detailed picture of what missed and why. More important, said analysts, will be what Apple says during its conference call about the state of the second quarter, which ends in March.”The big question is how much iPhone channel inventory Apple built in Q1,” Toni Sacconaghi, an analyst at Bernstein, wrote in a note to investors last week. Sacconaghi encouraged investors to listen for commentary on replacement cycles for the iPhone, reasons for the downturn in China and demand in other regions for the iPhone. “Our contention [is] that China only appears to account for half of the iPhone’s shortfall in Q1,” he wrote.UBS analyst Timothy Arcuri raised similar concerns in his investors note, writing that he’ll be paying attention to what Apple says about iPhone inventory levels, how long the company expects to be affected by demand in China, potential price reductions and iPhone upgrade cycles.

Boost Mobile See It Apple’s iPhone XS didn’t sell as well as analysts had expected during the holiday season.  Angela Lang/CNET Early this month, Apple CEO Tim Cook gave us the bad news in broad strokes. On Tuesday, we’ll find out just how bad it was.In a letter shared with investors on Jan. 2, Cook revealed that revenue in the company’s fiscal first quarter, ended on Dec. 29, would miss Apple’s own forecasts by about 15 percent. He laid most of the blame on an economic slowdown in China. “In fact, most of our revenue shortfall to our guidance, and over 100 percent of our year-over-year worldwide revenue decline, occurred in Greater China across iPhone, Mac and iPad,” he wrote. Cook also blamed a decrease in carrier phone subsidies and higher prices overseas caused by a strong US dollar. Customers additionally took advantage of Apple’s $29 battery replacement offer, which lets them squeeze more life out of their older iPhones. The company now sees sales of $84 billion, well below the range of $89 billion to $94 billion it had forecast in November. The earnings warning was Apple’s first in more than 15 years. The weaker holiday season — a period when most of Apple’s iPhones are sold — fanned a growing belief that the industry as a whole, and Apple in particular, is grappling with consumer smartphone fatigue. Many people also pointed to the high price tags on Apple’s newest phones. The iPhone XS ranges from $999 to $1,349, depending on storage capacity, and the XS Max with 512 GB of storage costs as much as $1,499. By comparison, the MacBook Air starts at $999.

49 Voices Shane Baldwin of St Paul

first_imgThis week we’re hearing from Shane Baldwin in St. Paul. Baldwin makes his living as a halibut fisherman. It could be a good way to make a living, if you wanna work hard. It’s not gonna be easy. There’s nothing easy about it. The fish don’t just just jump into the boart, and the line doesn’t lay itself. So it’s tough work, but after a couple years it becomes easy because you find once you get over everything and you get seasoned a little, you fuind ways to become faster and to make it more enjoyable. You just become used to it. You’re used to the pain and you’re used to the grind. But it’s a fun way too live. It’s not really for everybody. A lot of times, now that I’m a dad, I think about my baby a lot. And I think about a hot shower and a nice plate of food. But other than that, I’m not too… in the beginning O always wanted to be home or be on land, but now that I’m a little seasoned, I just know what I have to do and what needs to be done before we can go home. So it’s not too big of a deal. The crew I’m on right now, we’re actually all related. It just so happened to be that way, but we’re all related. So it’s a pretty close group of guys. They’re all good people, so it’s usually a good time. BALDWIN: I started baiting and chopping bait onshore when I was a little kid, about nine years old. I’ve pretty much been in the halibut industry since then. I was an onshore baiter for about five years, six years, baiting hooks for the fishermen so they could set their gear. Then, whenever I turned 18, after I graduated, I go on a boat and I’ve been fishing ever since. I’ve been on my 11th season now halibut fishing. center_img I’m fishing for my great-uncle; his name is Philip Lestenkof. His vessel is called the Niqax, and that’s Aleut for “open boat” or “open skiff.” It’s definitely nice to be able to fish for family, people that you enjoy being around in a sense. Shane Baldwin of St. Paul (Photo by Laura Kraegel, KUCB – Unalaska) I love it, and there’s a lot of people who do love it. If you need to make a living and you need to make some money, then halibut fishing could be there for you.last_img read more

Disney Reportedly Pulls YouTube Ads Over ChildExploitation Controversy

first_imgIn the wake of the revelations, Disney suspended its advertising spending on YouTube, Bloomberg reported Wednesday. (Disney reps did not respond to requests for comment.) Other advertisers that have frozen their YouTube ad spending include Epic Games, maker of “Fortnite,” and Nestle U.S., per the report. McDonald’s also has pulled YouTube ad spending, according to a Wall Street Journal report.YouTube did not comment on advertisers suspending their spending. According to YouTube, after Watson posted his exposé, the service terminated over 400 accounts and channels that violated its policies, disabled comments on “tens of millions” of videos and also reported illegal activity to law-enforcement authorities.“Any content — including comments — that endangers minors is abhorrent, and we have clear policies prohibiting this on YouTube,” a YouTube rep said in a statement. “There’s more to be done, and we continue to work to improve and catch abuse more quickly.”According to Watson, videos in the “pedophile ring” had run ads from brands including McDonald’s, Lysol, Disney, Hershey Co.’s Reese’s, Purina, Grammarly, Ikea and GNC.It’s the latest in a string of “brand safety” scandals for YouTube involving ads served with inappropriate content. In the fall of 2017, YouTube was hit by a backlash over ads on videos that attracted child predators. Earlier that year, evidence that YouTube was placing ads against violent and extremist videos led to a broad boycott by hundreds of advertisers, including Procter & Gamble, AT&T, Dish Network and PepsiCo.AT&T only last month announced that it planned to resume buying ads on YouTube after almost a two-year hiatus, telling the New York Times that it had determined the platform had taken sufficient steps to make itself “brand safe.”In response to the advertiser pullouts in 2017, YouTube moved to tighten controls over how ads are served and set new restrictions on creator eligibility for revenue sharing. Some YouTubers complained of an “adpocalypse” that cut into their earnings after the changes. YouTube is facing yet another big advertiser backlash, with Disney, Epic Games and McDonald’s among the marketers said to have pulled their ad spending after the Google-owned video platform was accused of facilitating what a critic described as a “soft-core pedophilia ring.”Vlogger Matt Watson, in a Feb. 17 video on his YouTube channel MattsWhatItIs, showed how YouTube’s algorithms enabled a secret “wormhole” for pedophiles, who posted sexual comments on videos of young girls and identified sections of the videos where they were in compromising positions or suggestive poses. In some cases, users were trading child pornography in the comments section, he claimed.“How does this exist?” a visibly upset Watson railed in the video. “For me, I want nothing to do with this platform that’s supporting this s—… It’s disgusting.” Popular on Variety center_img ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.
