Tempête tropicale Kyle

first_imgLa tempête tropicale Kyle n’a causé que des dommages minimes en Nouvelle-Écosse. Kyle a atteint la côte au nord de Yarmouth vers 21 h, le dimanche 28 septembre, comme ouragan de catégorie marginale 1. La tempête a faibli rapidement en tempête tropicale avant d’atteindre la baie de Fundy. Kyle est maintenant une tempête post-tropicale et est située au nord de l’Île-du-Prince-Édouard. Le comté de Shelburne a été le plus durement touché par la tempête, qui a entraîné des pannes de courant et des routes bloquées par les arbres tombés. Les routes devraient être nettoyées d’ici midi. En raison des vents forts, un édifice en construction à Shelburne a été endommagé. On a aussi signalé un bateau qui prenait de l’eau, mais les pompiers ont réussi à pomper l’eau et à empêcher le bateau de couler. « La sécurité des Néo-Écossais est toujours notre priorité. Les gens étaient très bien préparés pour cette tempête, » a dit Carolyn Bolivar-Getson, ministre de la Gestion des urgences. « Ils ont écouté les avis et pris les précautions nécessaires pour assurer leur sécurité et la sécurité de leurs biens. » Des pannes de courant ont été signalées dans plusieurs régions à l’échelle de la province. Les équipes de Nova Scotia Power travaillent de façon continue pour rétablir le courant dans les régions touchées. Le Bureau de gestion des urgences continuera de surveiller la situation en collaboration avec les coordonnateurs municipaux de la gestion des urgences.last_img read more

Narada accused former TMC Mayor Sovan Chatterjee joins BJP

first_imgNEW DELHI: Former TMC Mayor (Kolkata Municipal Corporation) and a Narada scam accused, Sovan Chatterjee, joined the Bharatiya Janata Party on Wednesday at the party headquarters here.Senior party leaders of West Bengal like Mukul Roy, Jay Prakash Majumdar and Arvind Menon inducted the former Trinamool-man into the saffron-brigade along with his close friend Baishakhi Banerjee. Addressing reporters, the former KMC Mayor and once close aide of Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee stressed on “internal dispute” in TMC as his prime reason of joining the BJP, adding that he was moved by the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah. However, he ducked questions on the corruption allegations against him. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c detailsThe party’s state wing sees his joining as a major shot in the arm for the BJP in the impending Corporation and Assembly elections. “Sovan has been in Bengal politics for nearly 36 years and was the Mayor of KMC. We are sure that BJP is going to win the corporation election for Kolkata Municipal Corporation and the Assembly elections as well,” senior BJP leader Mukul Roy said. Recently, Chatterjee was expelled from Trinamool after a marital dispute with his wife and child due to his proximity to Baishakhi. Sources here, however, said that a huge drama played out at the party headquarters in Delhi when Chatterjee’s former friend and another TMC MLA Debasree Roy also wanted to join the party, but the actor-turned-politician was eventually not inducted. Speaking to media persons, Mukul Roy dismissed any alleged communication with her and said that the Trinamool MLA was not going to join the BJP.last_img read more

MacDonald says Soulpepper rejected her concerns over actress auction

first_imgTORONTO – Acclaimed writer Ann-Marie MacDonald says leaders at the Soulpepper Theatre Company “bullied and harassed” her after she raised concerns about a fundraiser that auctioned dinners with a cast of actresses.Without their knowledge, the women who starred in “Top Girls,” were “sold” to the highest bidder by Soulpepper organizers under the guise they were willing participants, MacDonald alleged in an interview Friday.It led the author of 1996 novel “Fall on Your Knees” and former host of CBC’s “Doc Zone” series to raise the issue first with the theatre company and then with her union.“I was outraged, personally, and on behalf of my colleagues,” she said while recounting the incident, which happened nearly a decade ago.“To my mind, not only was it an egregious infraction of (union) rules, it was unbelievably disrespectful, arrogant and presumptuous.”MacDonald said she decided to come forward after hearing about the sexual assault and harassment allegations levelled against Soulpepper founding artistic director Albert Schultz earlier this week. She was also motivated by Soulpepper’s recent decision to sever ties with longtime guest artist Laszlo Marton after allegations of sexual harassment surfaced against him in late 2015.MacDonald was among the women starring in Soulpepper’s 2008 version of “Top Girls,” a British play about a career woman who celebrates her work promotion with a dinner party of prominent women from throughout history.The all-female cast included an array of other Canadian actresses, including Megan Follows, Diana Donnelly and Robyn Stevan, a founding member of Soulpepper.MacDonald was the production’s equity deputy, responsible for raising workplace issues that arose among union members.She said the cast had “a strong wish” to skip the dinners, although the actresses were concerned about repercussions.Soulpepper leaders also discouraged her from contacting board members and supporters who purchased the dinners, she said, adding that she was “laughed off” by a board member when she raised her concerns.Soulpepper did not immediately respond to a request for comment Friday.MacDonald also filed a formal complaint with her union, the Canadian Actors’ Equity Association.The union’s executive director, Arden Ryshpan, said she told her that perceived volunteering, without getting actual permission from the participant, is outside the terms of an artist’s contract.Soulpepper ultimately issued an apology to the cast, MacDonald said, although the dinners went ahead as planned without her attendance.Schultz resigned Thursday in the wake of four lawsuits filed by actresses against him and Soulpepper alleging sexually harassment.None of their allegations have been tested in court and neither Schultz nor Soulpepper have filed a statement of defence. Schultz said he will “vigorously defend” himself against the allegations.MacDonald said her pursuit of answers wasn’t tied to the most recent developments.“I had no idea these things were happening in terms of the sexual assault claims and lawsuits,” MacDonald said.“I was simply doggedly, in my own small way, trying to pursue something that I thought, ‘There’s a loose end there.’”MacDonald said she hopes adding her story to the voices of other women who have worked at Soulpepper will help in the long run.“If we are really talking about a healthier and new era, I think I have something to contribute about the importance of making links among different types of abuse,” she said.“If I can be brushed off, stonewalled, laughed at by a board member when I persisted in reporting what I knew I had to report … Just imagine how a 24 (or) 25-year-old woman feels fresh out theatre school.”—Follow @dfriend on TwitterNote to readers: This is a corrected story. A previous version said a union spokeswoman spoke to MacDonald. In fact, it was Arden Ryshpan, the executive director of the union.last_img read more

Middle East Annan encouraged following Geneva Accord meeting

In a statement released by his spokesman following Friday’s meeting with Yasser Abed Rabo, Yossi Beilin and others, Mr. Annan stressed that “the momentum needed for conflict resolution in the Middle East must come from people working together for change.” While noting that the Geneva Accord is not a substitute for official negotiations between the Israeli Government and the Palestinian Authority, he stressed that “it has already achieved the important goal of stimulating debate among Palestinians and Israelis on the factors that must be resolved to end this long conflict.” The Secretary-General also emphasized that the Road Map remains the “key mechanism” in moving towards broadly agreed goals. “The Geneva Accord and the Peoples’ Voice Initiative, with their proposals for a two-State solution and an end to the occupation that began in 1967, are consistent and compatible with the Quartet’s Road Map,” he said, hailing what are known as “track-two initiatives” as a “positive and praiseworthy contribution to stimulate the process.” read more

Wine experts celebrate chardonnay at annual CCOVI event

A sold-out group of 240 winemakers, grape growers and sommeliers celebrated chardonnay at Brock July 18. Winemakers, grape growers and sommeliers went back to school as the International Cool Climate Chardonnay Celebration (i4C) held its weekend event at Brock University.The educational session gave participants an opportunity to learn more about the impact various viticulture and winemaking practices have on chardonnay.The sold-out session titled ‘School of Cool’ was presented by Brock’s Cool Climate Oenology and Viticulture Institute (CCOVI) and the Grape Growers of Ontario as part of the i4C’s annual event that highlights the diversity of chardonnay from Canada and around the world through a variety of food and wine events.Keynote speaker Tim Atkin, a prominent wine writer and Master of Wine (MW), described chardonnay as the world’s greatest white wine variety.“Chardonnay is an expression of place and production, terroir and technique,” said Atkin.The event featured three panels that examined the role of innovation and technology in winemaking and grapevine yield as it relates to wine quality, and there was a discussion on the factors that influence viticulture practices.Master sommelier John Szabo moderated the discussions, which featured CCOVI viticulturist Jim Willwerth as well as 11 winemakers, grape growers and wine writers from around the world.Following the expert panels, participants attended a lunch in the Lowenberger Residence Dining Hall that featured a tasting of 117 chardonnays.CCOVI director Debbie Inglis said the institute is always pleased to work alongside industry partners to help develop and host educational sessions as part of the i4C’s annual event lineup.“Chardonnay is a wine style Ontario does very well, but it’s also wonderful to have the opportunity to celebrate and appreciate chardonnays from other cool climate regions around the world,” she said. read more

Ohio States Ryan Dzingel proud to be a part of mens hockey

Junior forward Ryan Dzingel (18) prepares to shoot the puck during a game against Michigan State Jan. 11 at the Schottenstein Center. The teams tied, 1-1.Credit: Kelly Roderick / For The LanternJunior forward Ryan Dzingel isn’t the most vocal player on Ohio State’s men’s hockey team, but that doesn’t stop him from being a leader.“He is a quiet leader. How he plays the game is how he leads,” associate head coach Brett Larson said.That leadership has seen Dzingel nominated for the Hobey Baker Memorial Award, given to the best collegiate hockey player in the country. The award is currently in the fan voting process to narrow the nominees down to 10, at which point a board will then finalize three nominees and announce the winner at the Frozen Four in April.“It’s not easy balancing all the most important things in my life. Faith, family and friends are the most important things in my life and always will be. I feel that if those three things are in place, school and hockey will follow. Takes hard work but all student-athletes find a way to get it done,” Dzingel said in an email.Dzingel said his biggest role models are his parents. He describes his mom as sweet and caring and said he “would like to be half the person she is.”As for his dad, who battled through cancer this past year, Dzingel said, “I could not be more proud to call him my role model/father.”The junior forward from Wheaton, Ill., joined the Buckeyes in 2011 as part of a class Dzingel described as “special.”“We knew three years ago coming in that we had a special junior class, and we were given a lot of opportunity and responsibility right away. There is a lot of talent, leadership, and hard-working guys in (this) group, which has helped us a lot. I’m proud to be a part of it.” Dzingel said.Dzingel is averaging 1.36 points per game, which leads the Big Ten and ties for 16th-best in the country. He also leads the Buckeyes in goals with 14 and is tied for the lead in assists with 16.“He continually puts a lot of effort into improving his shot. On and off the ice, he is always working on it,” Larson said. “The more shots he takes, the more goals, so I think that work ethic — working on that one area of his game — is really starting to pay off for him.”Dzingel attributes his success to shooting the puck more but also credits his teammates. He said he feels the Buckeyes can be successful if they can correct a couple mistakes.“We have a lot of guys who have bought into the team comes first (mentality). It’s a little bit cliche but we have got a good group of character people who believe in the team,” Larson said.The next puck drop is set for 7:05 p.m. Friday at the Schottenstein Center when the Buckeyes take on Penn State. read more

iOS descended from the late Dennis Ritchies work

first_imgIf you’re a Linux developer, have a programming degree, or are the founder of a billion-dollar tech company, then you already likely know about Dennis Ritchie, who passed away this week. For the rest of us, though, hearing about the death of someone who created a programming language might not resonate right away. May I suggest, then, that you remove that new iPhone 4S from your pocket and briefly marvel at iOS 5. Or power on your PC, and enjoy Windows. Or maybe fire up your MacBook Air, and soak up the brilliance of OS X. Or start up your Linux machine… What am I saying is that if you’re on Linux (of any sort), then you already know who Ritchie was.The C programming language and the UNIX operating system were the pinnacle achievements of Dennis Ritchie’s life’s work. It’s possible that you don’t know what any of that is, but I can promise that you have enjoyed the fruits of it. Nary a computer architecture exists that doesn’t depend, at a core level, on C or some later evolution of C.The C language is primitive by today’s standards, and is currently used primarily for core system-level operations. But C spawned nearly every other significant programming language to come after it. C++, which is at the core of Windows (and about a billion other systems), is a direct descendant of C. C is also a direct ancestor of Unix, which was developed by a team headed up by Ritchie and Brian Kernighan in the late 60’s at Bell Labs.If you still haven’t grasped the significance of these landmark innovations spearheaded by Ritchie, consider that C led to UNIX, UNIX is at the core of today’s OS X, and OS X shares the same foundation with iOS. So it isn’t simply hyperbole to say that your iPhone, Windows 7 machine, or MacBook Air was made possible in some distant — yet very elemental — way by Dennis Ritchie.More at PC Magazinelast_img read more

GSA Opens Online Auction for West Virginia Navy Facility

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR The General Services Administration (GSA) last week began accepting bids in an online auction for a former communications facility run by the Navy in the Potomac Highlands of West Virginia.The 122-acre campus at the former Navy Information Operations Command Sugar Grove once supported up to 450 personnel and their families in a self-contained community which includes residential housing among its 105 buildings. The Navy base closed in September, eliminating one of Pendleton County’s largest employers and the state’s only active-duty military installation, reported Stars and Stripes.The site is “ideal for a corporate training center, a university or academic campus, a spa/clinic, movie studio or mountain resort,” according to its listing on the GSA Auctions website. The high bid listed for the property is $1 million; a closing date for the auction has not been determined.Kansas-based KVC Health Systems, a child welfare and behavioral health care organization, previously has said it is interested in acquiring the site to turn it into a skills training college for young adults transitioning out of foster care. The federal government had offered to turn over the facility to the state at no cost for use as a state prison, but Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin (D) turned down the overture.last_img read more

Southeast Ballot Issues Cover Taxes Infrastructure and More

first_imgCommunities across Alaska are voting in municipal elections today. They are electing city council and assembly members and weighing in on local ballot measures. Some Southeast Alaska voters will consider how to raise revenues and what to spend them on.Download Audio:At least a dozen ballot measures are going before Southeast’s voters.The city of Ketchikan, for example, wants the OK to raise money to replace aging water and sewer lines.That could sound boring. But it won’t be if lines up to 50 years old break and spill their contents.“It’s not a question of if that system’s going to fail. It’s a question of it will fail.”That’s Ketchikan City Manager Karl Amylon answering a council question during a meeting last summer.A pair of ballot measures would raise $10 million for the projects. Officials say the state will reimburse 70 percent of the total cost.Council member KJ Harris usually opposes bond issues, but not this time.“To me, this is a need, not a want. We’ve got to have infrastructure.”Critics say the city already has too much bond debt.Petersburg voters face seven ballot issues, most addressing taxes.Four would change different aspects of the local senior citizen sales tax exemption. Two would limit the break to locals, while one would exempt only food and heating fuel.Another would make plans to phase out the break.Municipal Clerk Kathy O’Rear says if that measure passes, only those 65 and older by the end of 2019 would be eligible.“So eventually, the senior citizens’ sale tax exemption will sunset or go away,” O’Rear says.Petersburg sales tax committee member Lee Corrao is OK with residency requirements. But he’s not fond of the overall approach, which will increase municipal revenues.“They’ll just spend it. I don’t want to give it to them. And I don’t think most taxpayers want to just give them money unless there’s justification for it. This is not the way to do it. We have bond measures if we have projects we need to fund.”In Skagway, voters will be asked to approve a bond measure funding a new, $12 million public safety facility.Skagway Mayor Mark Schaefer, at an August meeting, said it’s an important need for the community’s tourism economy.“The buildings were use now are totally inadequate for the industry we serve. They’re quite shameful, in fact,” Schaefer says.A companion measure would increase Skagway’s seasonal sales tax from 5 percent to 6 percent.That’s expected to raise enough money to pay back the bonds, which are a type of loan.Critics are mostly concerned about the sales tax increase, because it would raise prices for residents, not just tourists.Juneau has one ballot proposition in this election.It would create what’s called an empowered board that could set budgets and raise revenues for the capital city’s two swimming pools.Supporters say a stronger board could attract more swimmers and other users, and help pay for needed repairs.Critics say the measure would put too much emphasis on one part of the community’s recreation programs.last_img read more
