Liberals merge youth employment programs in revamped jobs strategy

OTTAWA — Myriad federal programs aimed at helping young people get footholds in the job market are being merged as part of a revamped youth employment strategy.The changes unveiled today are meant to make applying for money simpler and to broaden the number of groups receiving government funding. Labour Minister Patty Hajdu says the one-window application system will have department officials link groups with funding, instead of making organizations wade through various programs with multiple funding streams.She says there will also be “additional rigour” required of groups to show they are providing appropriate mentoring and supports to young workers, particularly vulnerable groups like Indigenous youth and recent immigrants.That could mean some groups that have regularly received funding will find themselves on the outs, while those that never received funding before suddenly find themselves with up to $5 million annually for a national project, or up to $3 million for a regional project.Left untouched in the changes is the Canada Summer Jobs program, which an expert panel recommended become a year-round program. The Canadian Press read more

Tanzania to close camp as Burundian refugees return home UN says

Some 5,500 Burundian refugees in Tanzania will be relocated to another camp towards the end of this month as part of plans to consolidate camps amid the ongoing Burundi repatriation operation, the United Nations refugee agency said today.The Tanzanian Government is set to close Karago camp, one of nine camps for Burundian refugees in northwestern Tanzania, in the next few weeks, said UNHCR’s Jennifer Pagonis today in Geneva. The 5,500 refugees will be moved to the neighbouring Mtendeli camp, where they will receive the same assistance.“Under a tripartite agreement with UNHCR and Burundi, the Tanzanian authorities agreed that all camps with a refugee population under 10,000 refugees would be closed,” she said, adding that the programme is an attempt to consolidate camps that empty out with the departure of Burundian refugees for home.“We hope to facilitate the voluntary repatriation of about 85,000 Burundian refugees from Tanzania in 2005,” she said. In the first three months of this year, UNHCR helped 7,800 refugees return home. Concerns among the refugees over the availability of basic services in their home country and the peace process partially explain the drop in repatriation numbers.Funding is also a key constraint for the operation. Of the $62.3 million needed for the repatriation programme this year, donors have so far provided only some $8.5 million, or just 14 per cent.More than 158,000 Burundian refugees have returned home with UNHCR’s assistance since the voluntary repatriation programme from Tanzania began in March 2002. More than half those returns – 83,000 – took place in 2004, with numbers decreasing towards the end of the year. The year-end decline was mainly due to uncertainty among the refugees about the security situation in Burundi ahead of the February referendum. read more

Researchers Canadian firm helping Bahrain censor the web

by Raphael Satter, The Associated Press Posted Sep 21, 2016 2:27 am MDT Last Updated Sep 21, 2016 at 8:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email LONDON – Researchers have identified a Canadian company at the centre of a small Arab nation’s online censorship system — a finding that sits awkwardly with Ottawa officials’ public support for digital freedoms.Specialists from Internet watchdog Citizen Lab said in a report published Wednesday that web filtering firm Netsweeper Inc. is helping block news and opposition websites in Bahrain, a Gulf Arab monarchy which has been wracked by unrest since pro-democracy protests were stifled there in 2011.Citizen Lab Director Ron Deibert said the discovery undermines Canadian leaders’ forceful condemnations of online censorship.“Canadian policymakers have been quite vocal about saying that this is wrong,” Deibert said in a phone call ahead of the report’s release. “Yet here we have a Canadian company that’s doing precisely that.”Netsweeper, based in Guelph, Ont., did not return a call and other messages. In 2011, a company spokesman was quoted as saying there was “no good conversation for us to have” about allegations of censorship.Citizen Lab said the banned Bahraini sites include ones run by opposition and human rights groups as well as sites critical of Islam. Gambling and pornography sites also were blocked.Netsweeper’s suspected role as Bahrain’s censorship provider first came to light after the firm appeared to win a contract for a “national website filtering solution” earlier this year. Researchers at Citizen Lab said they confirmed the company’s role there by scouring Bahrain’s Internet space for Netsweeper installations and trying to access blocked sites from a server in the country.The researchers drew on clues such as lines including the words “Netsweeper” or “netsw” returned during Internet scans and a tell-tale line of code in the web addresses thrown up by blocked sites.Canadian government officials — who are promoting an upcoming Dubai trade show which Netsweeper is supposed to attend — said in a statement that while they could not comment on specific companies, “we expect Canadian businesses to operate lawfully and according to Canadian values.”Based at the University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs, Citizen Lab has made a specialty of exposing the companies behind surveillance and censorship in the Middle East and beyond. Last month, its discovery of Israeli-made spy software targeting an Arab dissident’s iPhone prompted Apple to issue a worldwide security update. Citizen Lab has been tracking Netsweeper’s work for years.Bahrain’s Information Ministry did not reply to emails seeking comment.___Online:Citizen Lab’s report: https://citizenlab.org/2016/09/tender-confirmed-rights-risk-verifying-netsweeper-bahrain Researchers: Canadian firm helping Bahrain censor the web read more

Rockstar looking for voice actor to play pedophile in Grand Theft Auto

first_imgRockstar likes to skirt controversy with its Grand Theft Auto series. Although that controversy can sometimes bite them on the posterior — Hot Coffee anoyone? — for the most part, sales of the Grand Theft Auto games tend to be helped along by all of the free publicity handed the titles by outraged moral crusaders like Jack Thompson. One wonders, though, if Rockstar and Take-Two might be taking things a little too far in the next Grand Theft Auto game. According to a casting call currently open for publisher Take-Two, Rockstar is currently looking for somebody to play the role of James Pedeaston in a new game, presumably the next in the Grand Theft Auto series.So what, I hear you ask? Well, James Pedeaston was a radio show host in Grand Theft Auto IV who, in that game, was wanted for child molestation in Malaysia, and was under investigation by the FBI. In the current casting call, Pedeaston is described as a “man-boy love activist who just got released from an Indonesian prison.”In other words, it seems like Rockstar is looking to go further with one of their more tasteless jokes in Grand Theft Auto IV. In the first game, the Pedeaston references were easy to miss, since his story was told in the rarely listened to talk radio stations, but in the new game, it looks like they want to flesh Pedeaston out into an on-screen side character.Rockstar’s tastelessness is more subversive than endorsement, so I have no doubt that the Pedeaston character will be handled with full acknowledgement of how loathsome the character is supposed to be. That said, it seems like child rape is just one of those things you don’t want to laugh about too much in a modern video game, don’t you think?Read more at Kotakulast_img read more

Young selected to negotiate final tax bill

first_imgRep. Don Young speaks in Eagle River.

That’s the panel assigned to hash out the differences between the House and Senate bills. In a statement, Young said he would do everything in his power to ensure that opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling is part of the final version.The bill the Senate passed would open the refuge. It’s not in the House bill. The Senate is expected to name its conference members this week and Sen. Lisa Murkowski, as chair of the Energy Committee, will likely be among them.The bill itself would lower taxes for corporations and many families. In the Senate bill, the corporate tax breaks are permanent while those for households would expire in 2025. The congressional Joint Committee on Taxation says the Senate bill would add $1 trillion to the national debt.last_img read more

Jupiter has lost one of its cloud stripes

first_img Explore further (PhysOrg.com) — New photographs of the gas giant Jupiter, the first taken on May 9, show the massive reddish band of clouds known as the Southern Equatorial Belt in the planet’s southern hemisphere has disappeared from view. The South Equatorial Belt (SEB) has faded away leaving just the north belt (NEB) viewable in small telescopes. Image credit: Anthony Wesley This document is subject to copyright.

Citation: Jupiter has lost one of its cloud stripes (2010, May 14) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2010-05-jupiter-lost-cloud-stripes.html © 2010 PhysOrg.com Aus amateur tells of ‘one in a million’ Jupiter spot The first photographs were taken by a noted Australian amateur astronomer, Anthony Wesley from Murrumbateman in New South Wales, using a 14.5 inch telescope. Wesley said he had been eagerly waiting to take photographs after Jupiter disappeared behind the sun and out of view for three months. In mid 2009 it was clear to Jupiter watchers the cloud band, which encircles the planet, was beginning to enter a new fading cycle. Wesley, an enthusiastic Jupiter observer, said the exact time the cloud belt will revive is unknown, but it fades every three to 15 years. Previous fading cycles have been characterized by violent and dramatic storms in the southern equatorial latitudes. The Northern and Southern Equatorial belts are composed of ammonia ice with phosphorus and some sulfur.It is not known why the belt periodically disappears, but it may be that it sinks lower if it cools, and then the view of it is obscured by clouds pouring in over the top of it. The clouds on Jupiter are tens of thousands of kilometers deep. Wesley said the phenomenon could be linked to storm activity that preceded the change.Wesley said Jupiter, the largest planet in the solar system, is fascinating to observe and photograph because the internal heat deep within the atmosphere makes it so dynamic and dramatic, and it can look different even from one day to the next. Watch Jupiter rotate and its cloud belts move with the winds. The time-lapse video was made using images shot during Voyager 1’s flyby of the planet in 1979. The most dramatic feature on Jupiter is the Great Red Spot, which now stands out more than usual since it is on the edge of the Southern Equatorial Belt, which has now faded from view. The Great Red Spot is a huge storm twice the size of Earth that has raged for at least three centuries, although astronomers said last year it appears to be shrinking. The photographs taken by Wesley have been released by The Planetary Society in California, and are also available on Wesley’s own website. In July last year Wesley was first to notice a dark blemish on Jupiter, probably caused by a comet. It is possible to see the features of Jupiter even with quite a modest telescope.last_img read more

Glendale Ariz — His status was a topic of conver

first_imgGlendale, Ariz. — His status was a topic of conversation for much of the last week, but Monday night against the Chargers Andre Ellington not only suited up for the Cardinals, but played an important role in the team’s 18-17 victory.The second-year pro finished with a team-best 53 yards rushing on 13 carries, and also added 27 yards on five receptions. His longest run of the night, 18 yards, came on the game-winning drive in the fourth quarter. He also lost one fumble. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo After the game Ellington, who was called a “game-time decision” by head coach Bruce Arians over the weekend, said the plan all along was for him to play.“Yeah, I did,” he said when asked if he had a good idea he’d be ready to go Monday night. “We kind of kept it a secret because we weren’t too sure. But I think getting that rest on it helped me out a lot. I was able to go out there and do some things that I wanted to do.”Ellington said there was some initial concern the injury would keep him out for a while, but after consulting with some doctors it was determined he could play through it. However, he said he knew for sure he’d suit up Monday after going through warmups prior to the game. After the game, Arians said he saw enough out of Ellington during Saturday’s practice to believe he’d be ready to go by kickoff, and the former Clemson Tiger must have been feeling pretty good as he by far led the team in carries while also seeing the second-most targets in the passing game.All offseason there was talk of Ellington being a focal point of the offense, and Monday night he was exactly that.The 25-year-old admitted he was a little limited by the injury, saying he wasn’t full speed and there was some difficulty going left to right, but was in good enough help to contribute. Top Stories Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling As for how much of an issue the left foot injury — which he says is a problem with some tendons and has left him a little sore — will be going forward, Ellington was not sure.“I mean it’s kind of a day-to-day thing,” he said. “I’m not well aware of how long I’ll be out or anything like that. I mean, just getting some rest on it, and I’ll be good to go for next week.”The way Ellington sees it, chances are he’s not going to feel 100 percent too often, so he won’t look to sit out just because he is dealing with a little pain.“This game, you’ll never play pain-free, that’s one thing I know,” he said. “So I’m willing to play through any pain.” – / 61 Comments   Share   last_img read more

just like yours Ellen" Right after she was born my husband went with her for a bath as I was stitched up after my c-section When he returned he mentioned that her eyes were a "funny color" All of those observations straightforward and innocent on the surface let me know that some of my darkest fears were probably being realized My daughters long skinny fingers and toes the bluish color in the whites of her eyesthese were signs that Leah had inherited a scrambled gene that would wreak havoc on her skeleton When she was six weeks old we received official word that Leah had indeed inherited my bone disorder osteogenesis imperfecta (OI)a condition that would likely cause her many fractures (I had about three dozen before the age of 11) and possibly painful corrective surgeries I clutched her fiercely against my chest and told God that he had damn well better take care of this child That day 14 years ago was the hardest day of my life I have spent much of the past 10 years or so writing about genetics and disability and the choices made possible by increasingly sophisticated technologies that allow parents to choose to some extent what sort of child they might have I have talked to dozens of potential parents who like me have some serious genetic baggage and fear putting its weight on their childrens shoulders And I have talked to some people who wonder whether if their child does inherit some genetic menace that wreaks havoc on that childs health and well-being will they regret that they took such chances with a genetic lottery stacked against them I tell such people that I think its impossible barring extreme psychological dysfunction to regret your own childs existence And I tell them about my daughter Leah who is bearing the weight of my own genetic baggage on her fragile skeleton who has yes broken a dozen bones and deeply mourned the losses that come when yet another broken bone messes with our plans I have watched Leah sink into a place that is really dark and really sad But I have other stories to tell about Leah not just the dark and sad ones Theres this story: One Sunday morning several months ago I slipped on some black ice when going to get our newspaper Landing hard on my back I broke two ribs and a shoulder bone and partially collapsed a lungthe kind of injuries that stronger-boned people incur when they fall from trees and roofs I managed to crawl from the frozen front walk into our entrance hall but couldnt go any farther While I lay there waiting for the ambulance to arrive as my husband reassured my two younger children and called my mom to come stay with the kids as I struggled to breathe Leah sat next to me on the floor She just sat there silent At one point I said to her "You know Leah dont you You know how Im feeling" I wasnt talking just about the pain but also the crushing disappointment of a regular day ruined the weightier knowledge of the ruined days to come I was talking about feeling powerless in the face of something as stupidly mundane as ice and being betrayed by the fragile body gaining the upper hand on the strong spirit Leah nodded Yes she knew A few months later I was heading to pick Leah up from church choir practice I was dreading it because I knew that Leah would be getting some bad news at the rehearsal For Leah singing is a passion and when she joined our church choir about three years ago she found another family a community The choirmaster was a young man called Dr Roberts Dr Roberts is a talented musician but also a gifted teacher Leah will Im sure remember him for the rest of her life as the kind of teacher and mentor who changed her life I knew that during this particular rehearsal Dr Roberts was planning to let the kids know that he had taken a job in New York City and would be leaving I knew Leah would be devastated She came out from the church to the parking lot and with tears streaming down her face she said "You know Mom This is his dream this job hes taking in New York Its good Its just all good" So it seems that at not quite 15 years old Leah knows what love looks like She knows how to help carry anothers burden She knows that sometimes an empathic presence is more helpful than words She knows about wanting the best for someone you care about even when their best is your worst That she is capable of such wisdom at such a young age is proof to me that I can never regret anything about the person Leah is and is becoming brittle bones and all I want to be perfectly clear though about what I dont mean I hate those clichés about how we should be grateful for the shitty stuff in our life because it teaches us so much about how "Everything happens for a reason" I dont believe that one bit But Im beginning to understand that Leahs inheritance from me is not merely a faulty gene and a fragile skeleton but also the truest kind of compassionthe kind that arises when you know what pain looks like and feels like and you recognize anothers need and know just what to do Do I regret that Leah inherited my fragile bones I dont love it I even sometimes hate it But while I sometimes wish I could have spared her that particular genetic fate Im also profoundly grateful that it was not in my power to decide what kind of kid I would get Because I never could have predicted much less devised the wounded and gracious
