Chamber of Commerce Luncheon on Immigration for BCs Future

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The upcoming Chamber Luncheon will host Katie Rosenberger, Executive Director of the Affiliation of Multicultural Societies and Service Agencies (AMSSA) on the need to strengthen newcomer integration.The BC Provincial Association will share how they help to strengthen member agencies and stakeholders who serve newcomers and build culturally inclusive communities with the knowledge, resources and support.After an extensive consultation period in November 2017, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada released its multi-year Immigration Levels Plan. This plan is to help be proactive in determining service and market integration needs by impact settlement and integration programming. Yet it was clear that BC lacked planning in regards to the integration of newcomers. Employment in BC increased at a faster pace than at the national level which enabled BC’s labour force to expand by 74,700 persons in 2016 and 68,400 persons in 2017, to reach a labour force of 2.6 million people.Shared in the promotion information from the Chamber, according to the Economic Insight no. 81, Recent Economic Developments in British Columbia, Immigration, particularly to Vancouver, accounted for 50% of the overall labour force increase in 2016.The promotion information goes on to share that the 2018 BC Labour Market Outlook forecasts 903,000 job openings between 2018 and 2028 with 68% of these openings occurring due to retirement and 32% due to the creation of new jobs.It is estimated that 27% of these vacancies will need to be filled by 24,300 immigrants each year. The 2018 BC Labour Market Outlook estimates that 77% of the 903,000 jobs that need to be filled by 2028 will require at least some form of post-secondary education or training.The need for a highly qualified workforce requires a commitment from BC to provide job-readiness training and industry-specific language training for newcomers. Their innovative ideas and diverse perspectives can contribute significantly to existing structures, according to the Conference Board of CanadaThe AMSSA released a report September 2018 calling for action from the Government of BC to increase support for the integration of newcomers. The report provides a series of significant recommendations for investments into BC’s immigration integration system.Immigration for BC’s FutureTuesday, January 22, 201911:45 am – 1:00 pmPomeroy Hotel & Conference Centre11308 Alaska RoadTo Register for the event CLICK HERElast_img read more

NHL set to vote on Seattle expansion for 202122 season

SEA ISLAND, Ga. — The NHL Board of Governors is expected to approve expansion to Seattle, with the league’s 32nd team beginning play in the 2021-22 season.A three-quarters vote of the current 31 owners is needed to confirm Seattle as the league’s newest franchise. The nine-member executive committee that heard Seattle’s presentation in October voted unanimously to move the matter to the full board, which is meeting in Georgia. The vote is expected on Tuesday.Seattle Hockey Partners will pay NHL owners $650 million to join. The group led by majority owner David Bonderman, producer Jerry Bruckheimer and president and CEO Tod Leiweke had been hoping for play to begin in 2020, but uncertainty over completing arena renovations in time means Seattle will have to wait another year for the return of a major winter sports team.A team in Seattle balances the Eastern and Western Conferences at 16 teams apiece, but also requires realignment to even out the Central and Pacific Divisions. Many expect the Arizona Coyotes to be moved to the Central Division in 2021 when Seattle enters the league.___Follow AP Hockey Writer Stephen Whyno on Twitter at AP NHL: and Whyno, The Associated Press read more

The market breaking down social barriers

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram When was the last time you got something for free? Like proper, no-strings-attached free? It’s hard to imagine that such a thing can exist, but Preston is attracting a community of like-minded individuals who are doing their bit to bunk the status quo with the Really Really Free Market.Held monthly, people bring along everything from plant seedlings, books and clothing, to offers of services such as massage, repairs, and recorder lessons free of charge, a concept co-organiser and participant Eric Hornung says takes some getting used to.“Understandably, a lot of people are not used to taking something without paying. I often hear people saying ‘Can I actually just take this?’ or when Food-Not-Bombs is serving lunch: ‘is this food really free?’,” he tells Neos Kosmos.The first market of its kind took place in Christchurch, New Zealand in 2001 as a protest against a meeting on free trade, and since then the concept has spread around the world to Jakarta, the US, Russia, and even Greece. “The Preston Really Really Free Market was partially inspired by these efforts, but also a range of things like environmental sustainability, community building, and just doing something fun that everyone can participate in,” Hornung explains.Given the event’s satirical name, he says organisers were also likely drawn to the idea from an anti-capitalist perspective – providing a pop-up ‘gifting economy’ or mutual aid often advocated by anarchist politics, which he says provides “a stark contrast against the monetary-based neoliberal economy which dominates in Australia today”. Aside from everything being available free of charge to the market visitor, what also makes the market distinct is its organisation, which is moving away from the concept of a hierarchy with little to no distinction between organisers and market goers.With the help of local grassroots groups Transition Darebin and Doing It Ourselves, since its inception in April the market has been well received with the number of attendees on the rise.“One encouraging thing about the market is it has attracted a cross-section of Preston’s multicultural population,” he says. “We are working on getting our posters translated to the different language groups in the area to hopefully reach more people who might not otherwise come.”As in the US and Russia, the idea of starting markets in other areas across Melbourne has also been raised in a bid to keep the event decentralised and community-controlled – a key component.While the concept is a clear push toward sustainability – giving new life to used items, for Hornung what truly stands out is the market being a place where all feel welcome regardless of background, social status, or whether they know anyone.“The market helps to inspire thoughts on different ways we might be able to interact with each other to meet our needs in a society where our relationships often take place around the need to compete against or exploit each other,” he says.“Anything getting us off the couch and actually interacting with each other is probably worthwhile, and based on the smiles at the market, surely it’s a good thing.”The next Really Really Free Preston Market is on Sunday 27 August from 10.00 am – 2.00 pm.

Finally, Tommy Wiseau Joins The Avengers in Marvel’s ‘The Room’

first_img Sony Pictures CEO Says ‘Door Is Closed’ for Now on Spider-Man SplitMarvel Censors Criticism of America From Marvel Comics #1000 Stay on target I have a lot of opinions about The Room. The so-called “Citizen Kane of Bad Movies” is indeed so awful that it’s absolutely hilarious. Every minute is packed with meme-worthy bits of bizarre incompetence as this weird vampire man stars in a glossy nonsensical romance drama. I love it, watching it alone or with a trained cult crowd in midnight theaters Rocky Horror style.What I don’t love is Tommy Wiseau’s desperate attempt to spin the whole thing as some kind of joke on purpose. I’m not laughing with Tommy, I’m laughing at him. What doesn’t help are all the accounts of Wiseau’s sketchy behavior detailed in The Disaster Artist (co-written by co-star Greg Sestero sadly accepting this is the height of his career). This book was then adapted into a pretty great drama by my personal irony king James Franco, just adding to my inner conflict.Anyway, here’s a video that imagines what it might be like if Tommy Wiseau entered the Marvel Cinematic Universe.Edited by Pistol Shrimps and Schomoyoho, this musical mashup inserts songified clips from The Room into various iconic Avengers moments. They even got Sestero to record some new footage, and plug his new movie with Wiseau Best Friends. This was actually first posted a few months ago, hence why there’s nothing here from Avengers: Endgame. But Wiseau just posted it on his own YouTube page, renewing interest.After SDCC, we already know about Marvel Studios Phase 4. But would you want to see Marvel Studios’ The Room as part of Phase 5? It could work. Wiseau is already part of the Marvel universe in the comics. He’s an alien criminal who escaped the Guardians of the Galaxy and fled to Earth to make bad movies. James Gunn would have a field day with that. For more on Tommy Wiseau check out his weird underwear website.last_img read more

Upper Tribunal rules against ITV in pensions antiavoidance case

first_imgThe Upper Tribunal has ruled against television broadcasting organisation ITV, confirming that pensions watchdog organisation The Pensions Regulator (TPR) was entitled to use its powers to gain financial support for members of the Box Clever pension scheme.The case, ITV and others v The Pensions Regulator, concerns TPR’s decision to undertake anti-avoidance action regarding the Box Clever Group Pension Scheme in December 2011.Box Clever, formed in 2000, was the result of a merger between television rental organisations Granada (now ITV) and Thorn, now known as Carmelite. Prior to the organisation’s collapse, employees affected by the merger were transferred into a Box Clever pension scheme when they moved to the new organisation. This was to ensure that staff received the same benefits they would have gained from their previous pension arrangements.The Box Clever pension scheme currently has approximately 2,800 members, and a deficit of around £115 million.TPR opened anti-avoidance action in December 2011, to issue financial support directions (FSD) to five organisations that form part of the ITV Group. The FSDs required the organisations to propose how they would financially support the Box Clever pension scheme. This could include, for example, the target of the FSD assuming responsibility for the employer’s liabilities to the scheme or making a lump sum cash payment into the pension scheme.ITV originally referred to the Upper Tribunal in January 2012 to question TPR’s determination to issue FSDs in this instance. The broadcasting organisation then challenged TPR’s ability to submit additional evidence to the anti-avoidance case in 2013.Both the Court of Appeal and the Upper Tribunal ruled in favour of TPR and refused ITV permission to appeal, with decisions announced in 2017 and 2016, respectively. This confirmed that TPR is not bound by the original case it presented to the Determinations Panel, but that it is entitled to raise matters not previously raised where a determination is referred to the Upper Tribunal.The Upper Tribunal decision, which was published on 18 May 2018 following a two-week hearing in January 2018, concluded that it is reasonable for ITV to provide financial support for the Box Clever scheme in the circumstances of this individual case.The tribunal clarified that, in order to meet its objectives, TPR had to consider events which had occurred retrospectively to the Pensions Act 2004 coming into force, especially in relation to the FSD framework, which is designed as a rescue measure for pension schemes in deficit.The tribunal further concluded that the FSD is not a fault-based regime, but a responsibility-based one; therefore, because shareholders chose the structure of the joint venture, they should also bear appropriate responsibility for the associated risks.The tribunal also found that an FSD may still be issued against a target even if it has not received any substantial benefit from its relationship with the pension scheme’s sponsoring employer.ITV now has 14 days to seek permission to appeal the tribunal’s decision. If no appeal is held, TPR’s Determinations Panel will issue financial support directions to ITV.This is the first time an anti-avoidance case by TPR has been heard in full at the Upper Tribunal.Mrs Justice Rose and Judge Timothy Herrington, who ruled over the case, said in the court documents: “By their choice of structure for the joint venture, the shareholders extracted considerable cash from the business with no risk of recourse to their assets. They retained an ongoing interest in the merged business with the possibility of further value being generated if the business was successful, but without having to bear any responsibility if the business, whose strategy they continued to determine, subsequently failed.”A spokesperson at ITV said: “ITV is naturally disappointed by the tribunal’s decision. ITV continues to believe that the case brought against it is unfair and will be seeking to appeal the decision.“The tribunal repeatedly stressed in its judgment that no blame or criticism should be attributed to ITV concerning the transaction, 18 years ago, that formed the Box Clever joint venture. There were sound reasons for implementing that transaction, which was, in good faith, regarded as being in the best interests of Granada’s shareholders, employees and consumers.”Mike Birch, director of case management at TPR, added: “We are very pleased with this ruling, which sends a clear message to [organisations] linked with defined benefit pension schemes that we will not hesitate to use our anti-avoidance powers where we believe it is reasonable for them to provide financial support. We will pursue these cases for as long as necessary to protect pension savers and the Pension Protection Fund.“This has been a long and complex case, where the targets have raised numerous legal challenges, causing significant delays in an outcome being reached. We now hope that ITV will accept the Upper Tribunal’s findings and seek to work with TPR to put in place appropriate financial support for the scheme and deliver a good outcome for members.”last_img read more

More than 14 million employers complete autoenrolment duties

first_imgAround 1.4 million (1,418,680) UK employers have completed their pensions auto-enrolment duties as at November 2018, according to research by The Pensions Regulator (TPR).Its Declaration of compliance report: July 2012-end November 2018, which is based on information submitted by employers when they complete their declaration of compliance documentation, also found that just under 10 million (9,958,000) employees are saving for their retirement after being automatically enrolled into a workplace pension since 2012.Between September 2015 and November 2018, 73,643 employers confirmed they have completed their pensions automatic re-enrolment duties to remain compliant. This means that 591,000 eligible employees have been successfully re-enrolled into their workplace pension over this period.Clare Moffat, head of business development at Royal London, said: “[The] auto-enrolment compliance statistics show the number of employees auto-enrolled into a pension edging ever closer to the 10 million mark. This is great news, but the stats also show there are a further 9.2 million [employees] within these [organisations] who have not been enrolled into a pension.“We need urgent action to bring groups such as the low paid, part-time [employees] or the self-employed into auto-enrolment to ensure they are also given the opportunity to build a sustainable pension to see them through retirement.”last_img read more

A novel way to put flame retardant in a lithium ion battery

Electrospun core-shell microfiber separator with thermal-triggered flame-retardant properties for lithium-ion batteries, Science Advances (2017). DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.1601978AbstractAlthough the energy densities of batteries continue to increase, safety problems (for example, fires and explosions) associated with the use of highly flammable liquid organic electrolytes remain a big issue, significantly hindering further practical applications of the next generation of high-energy batteries. We have fabricated a novel “smart” nonwoven electrospun separator with thermal-triggered flame-retardant properties for lithium-ion batteries. The encapsulation of a flame retardant inside a protective polymer shell has prevented direct dissolution of the retardant agent into the electrolyte, which would otherwise have negative effects on battery performance. During thermal runaway of the lithium-ion battery, the protective polymer shell would melt, triggered by the increased temperature, and the flame retardant would be released, thus effectively suppressing the combustion of the highly flammable electrolytes.

Adv. 2017;3:e1601978 Reports of phones and hoverboards catching fire due to short circuits in batteries have caused alarm in the personal electronics industry—both by users and those that make the devices. Unfortunately, up until now, engineers have not been able to solve the problem completely. Most such efforts involve re-engineering devices to prevent short-circuiting and thus overheating, or attempting to put flame retardant directly in the batteries. Neither approach has proven to be entirely satisfactory. Re-engineering does not always solve the problem and the addition of flame retardant greatly reduces battery efficiency. In this new effort, the researchers describe an approach that thus far appears to offer some help—it does not stop overheating from occurring, but it is able to prevent fire.The new approach involves encapsulating a common flame retardant called triphenyl phosphate in an extremely tiny sheath made of plastic fibers and then inserting several of them into the electrolyte that sits between the anode and cathode. The sheath keeps the retardant from actually coming into contact with the electrolyte material, which is flammable and the source of most battery fires. But the plastic fibers in the sheath have a melting point of 160° Celsius—if that temperature is reached, the plastic melts and the retardant is released into the electrolyte quashing a potential fire. Journal information: Science Advances In test devices using their encapsulated flame retardant, the researchers report that the sheaths melted and the retardant was released and merged with the electrolyte in just 0.4 seconds and because of that fires were averted.In practice, it is presumed that such an occurrence in a device would initiate a hardware error before the battery stopped working to alert a user to what had occurred. Thereafter, a user would also presumably have to purchase a new battery in order to continue using their device which would survive the overheating event.

You Can Literally Play With Fire Thanks to This Hot New Gadget

first_img Sci-Fi fans: Here’s the irresistible invitation to play with fire you’ve been waiting for. Meet Pyro, literally the hottest wearable on the market right now. It’s a wrist-worn gadget that lets you shoot fireballs from your hand.We repeat: It lets you shoot balls of fire from your hand. Real, hot, dangerous — and dangerously magnificent — burning balls of fire. The kind Mom said never to play with.Related: A ‘Smart’ Belt Automatically Adjusts to Keep Your Pants UpStrapped onto your mere mortal wrist, Pyro blasts balls of fire up to 30-feet into the air, almost as awesomely as fire-bending Zuko on Avatar: The Last Airbender.Sound too cool to be true? Check out the highly stylized promotional video:You’d think this would go without saying, but, before you get too excited, you should know that Pyro is not a plaything. In the words of its inventor, veteran New Hampshire-based magician Adam Wilber: “This is not a toy. This is a badass professional device that allows you to launch fireballs from your open palm.” Indeed, pro illusionists are who this $174 wearable is specifically targeted to.The somewhat bulky Pyro wrist cuff (which looks a bit like a parolee anklet) contours to the underside of the brave wearer’s wrist. A notched fastener strap allows the unit to be tucked up your sleeve, while “keeping it out of the way of the flaming shots.” Oh, good.Related: Why This Entrepreneur Dreams of Living on MarsSimply push the matchbook-sized remote control trigger, held in your other hand and — boom — goodness, gracious, great balls of fire!Image credit: PyroYou can fire off four fireballs before reloading. How it works: Specially treated, highly flammable cotton and paper packs come with the Pyro wristband, which houses a quartet of individually triggered barrels. When the remote control trigger is activated, the cotton and paper come into contact with a heated “glowplug” inside of the device, igniting them. Pressing the remote a second time shoots the fireballs out, one by one.Pyro fireball blasters are available for purchase (for those 18 and older) over at Ellusionist, an online magic supply retailer.  Now what was that you said, Mom, about not playing with fire?Image credit: PyroRelated: Look Ma, No Hands: Drones You Can Pilot With Your Mind 3 min read Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now March 12, 2015center_img This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience.

The process for accessing bone marrow to perform diagnostic procedures has been largely unchanged over the past 50 years. The OnControl Aspiration and Biopsy Systems combine a lithium-powered driver with a needle set to obtain bone marrow and provide comfort with minimal pain for patient, speed with insertions in seconds, not minutes, and for successful outcomes. In 2007, a study was undertaken to validate the performance of the first generation OnControl Aspiration System. Forty-three patients were included in the beta testing, which reflected ease-of-use, rapid insertion times, minimal patient pain, no complications, and an overall user assessment of 8.1 (on a scale of 0-10, with 0 being extreme dissatisfaction and 10 being extremely satisfied). This validation study also reported pain on a scale of 0-10 (0=no pain; 10=worst possible pain). The median pain score observed with the OnControl system was 2.0, and mean insertion time was 4.9 seconds vs. 7.3 minutes for manual needle from previously published studies. The OnControl Aspiration and Biopsy System consists of the OnControl power driver and patented, specially designed needle sets. The aspiration needle set includes a 15 gauge, bi-beveled needle with Luer lock connector and stylet, and is available in three lengths: 25mm, 68mm, and 90mm. Included in a procedural tray with the needle sets are sharps protectors, designed to protect the medical staff from inadvertent needle sticks. The OnControl Biopsy System will be commercially available summer 2009 and is appropriate for all adult patients requiring bone marrow biopsies. The OnControl Biopsy System addresses the challenges of patients with hard bone cortex, those with osteoporosis or fragile pelvises, and those for whom biopsies have previously been difficult or painful. The OnControl Biopsy System, with a thread welded inside the biopsy cannula, reliably captures bone marrow samples.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Videos | Interventional Radiology | June 26, 2019 VIDEO: How Alexa Might Help During Interventional Radiology Procedures Kevin Seals, M.D.,… read more Image courtesy of NinePoint Medical Technology | Interventional Radiology | August 14, 2019 FDA Clears NvisionVLE Imaging System for Pancreatic and Biliary Applications August 14, 2019 — NinePoint Medical Inc. announced it has received U.S. read more Technology | Interventional Radiology | June 24, 2019 Mentice and Siemens Healthineers Integrate VIST Virtual Patient With Artis Icono Angiography System Siemens Healthineers and Mentice AB announced the collaboration to fully integrate Mentice’s VIST Virtual Patient into… read more News | Interventional Radiology | July 31, 2019 International Multidisciplinary Group Publishes Recommendations for Personalized HCC Treatment With Y90 TheraSphere New consensus recommendations for personalized treatment for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with BTG’s TheraSphere have… read more News | CT Angiography (CTA) | July 24, 2019 WVU Medicine Installs First Alphenix 4D CT in the U.S. The West Virginia University (WVU) Heart and Vascular Institute is the first hospital in the country to acquire the… read more Related Contentcenter_img News | Interventional Radiology | June 19, 2019 Merit Medical Acquires Brightwater Medical Inc.

is known for playing fun games with his celebrity guests on The Tonight Show and his hugely popular lip-sync battles have always been a crowd favorite When pop princess Ariana Grande visited Monday night however the late-night host took a different but just as entertaining approach The duo shot a skit featuring Grande in her dressing room with Fallon entering and announcing himself as “Me Myself & I” They then proceeded to discuss everything from their #ThrowbackThursday Instagram posts (Grande’s from when she was “7 years” old and Fallon’s from when he was “Seventeen”) to their weekend plans (Jimmy wants to go to Home Depot and swing from a “Chandelier”) He also managed to slip in a mention of Grande’s new single “Dangerous Woman” which she performed at the end of the show The real star of the night however was Grande’s grandmother or nonna as she calls her who was in the audience and apparently has quite a soft spot for Fallon @ArianaGrande’s grandmother is a big fan of Jimmy

Event Center But the real main attraction will be 200 miles away in FargoRepublicans expect a rollicking three-day state convention at Scheels Arena with two high-profile national keynote speakers and more than 1800 delegates voting to endorse a full slate of statewide candidates headlined by a three-way contest for the first open governor’s seat since 2000The Democratic-NPL Party meanwhile is hoping for 500 to 550 delegates and as of Friday had just two announced candidates for eight endorsed statewide offices: gubernatorial candidate Marvin Nelson a state representative from Rolla and running mate Joan Heckaman a state senator from New RockfordThe contrast between the overlapping conventions underscores the gap between the robust GOP which holds supermajorities in both chambers of the Legislature and controls all but one statewide office and Democrats struggling to stay relevant and rebalance the power in solidly red-state North DakotaFor Republicans the biggest worry may be that former presidential hopeful Ben Carson’s address about 10:10 am Sunday April 3 and another high-profile keynote speaker being announced this week could overshadow the key governor’s race"We’re thrilled that North Dakota is garnering some national attention but at the end of the day we want to make sure that this is about our candidates and our state" GOP Executive Director Roz Leighton saidFormer state GOP chairman Robert Harms an attorney and lobbyist advising Fargo businessman Doug Burgum’s campaign said he has attended every state convention since 1988 "and I think this will be one of the most exciting""I think there’ll be some surprises" he saidGOP conventionNo offense to the undercards but state GOP chairman Kelly Armstrong said the main event is clearly the contest between Burgum Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem and state Rep Rick Becker of Bismarck"I don’t think it’s unfair to say that the vast majority of the buzz around this election cycle in North Dakota has been around our three candidates for governor" he saidAnd for good reason: It’s the first three-way GOP endorsement race since 1992 when eventual Gov Ed Schafer bested state Sen Gary Nelson and Rep Gary Porter Republicans haven’t lost a governor’s race since then Heightening the interest is the fact that Burgum who led Great Plains Software through its $11 billion sale to Microsoft in 2001 and now works in real estate development and venture capital plans to run in the June 14 primary regardless of the convention’s outcome He has said he believes whoever wins the primary will be the state’s next governorBurgum will share his vision with delegates at the convention but "the key focus for Doug is June 14" communications manager Kate Mund saidIn a rare pre-convention move Burgum has spent nearly $500000 on a TV ad campaign to spread his message and try to overcome the strong name recognition enjoyed by Stenehjem who is the state’s longest-serving attorney general having been elected in 2000 after 24 years as a state lawmakerStenehjem widely considered the favorite for the GOP nod plans to start rolling out his own TV ads after the convention In the meantime he’s made nearly 1000 calls to delegates campaign manager Nate Martindale said"We’ve been getting very positive feedback" he said "Every day that passes we get more confident"Becker predicted a "very strong chance" the race will go to two ballots and said he’s more likely to pick up Burgum’s delegates than Stenehjem"Burgum and I are two very different candidates What we share in common is .
