New Ont Tory leader says hes jumping into campaign mode eager to

first_imgTORONTO – Ontario’s newly elected Opposition leader is vowing to spend much of the next three months on the road campaigning for a spring election, saying his party is focused on forming government so it can find efficiencies and shape up the province’s finances.Doug Ford, who narrowly won the Progressive Conservative leadership late Saturday, laid out his plans to topple the governing Liberals during an unannounced first visit to the province’s legislature on Monday, where he met with his new staff.“I have to be out there non-stop,” Ford said. “As my Dad always said, in business, you aren’t getting sales in the office. You’ve got to get sales outside. We’re going to be out on the road. You won’t see me in here too often.”Ford said he will leave much of the work in the legislature to the party’s now former interim leader, Vic Fedeli, who was installed in the post after the sudden January resignation of Patrick Brown amid sexual misconduct allegations.“I just look forward to getting in here and moving forward,” Ford said. “Our focus is going to be on straightening out the finances of this province.”Ford won the Tory leadership following a chaotic convention that saw results delayed over seven hours because of the narrow margin between him and runner-up former Tory legislator Christine Elliott, who initially questioned the vote and took nearly a full day to concede.Ford, who met with Elliott Sunday night, said they were putting the heated competition behind them.“We’re going to move forward as a cohesive group,” he said of the party that has been plagued by infighting in recent weeks. “I talked to numerous MPPs, endless candidates. We’re all excited.”Ford also said he spoke with Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne on Monday, saying he had great respect for her.“She’s a great campaigner, a great debater. I never underestimate her,” he said. “But she’s never debated Doug Ford before and I can’t wait.”Ford, who has curried favour with social conservatives and vowed to wrest power from political elites, also said Monday that he would review the Liberal government’s sex-education curriculum, but denied he wanted to debate access to abortion in the legislature, despite raising questions about the matter last week.“(Abortion) is not on the top of my priority list,” he said. “We’re going to reduce hydro rates, start attracting great-paying jobs and business.”Ford also repeated his plan to do away with a carbon tax proposed under Brown to replace the Liberals’ cap-and-trade system, but has so far not provided details on how he’d make up for the billions from the tax that were to fund major Tory campaign promises, including a income tax cut.Wynne said voters will have a “stark” choice between her Liberal party and Tories when the province heads to the polls in June.“Mr. Ford and I disagree on a lot of things,” she said Monday morning. “I think what we are putting forward as a platform is very, very different than what any of the Conservatives were putting forward, which is cutting and removing supports from people.”Wynne said Ford’s selection as Tory leader won’t change how her party plans for the spring vote, pitching herself as the candidate ready to invest in people.“I need to focus on what it is that people are saying to me in terms of what they need,” she said.Western University political science professor Cristine de Clercy said it’s difficult to say just where Ford will take the Tories when it comes to policy, but noted that his populism could pose a problem for his rivals.“Mr. Ford’s populism carries with it the promise to corrode the bases of the other two parties,” she said. “The New Democrats and the Liberals both have to worry about losing key voters to Mr. Ford because they’re attracted to his populism regardless of his ideology.”“We actually don’t know much about him as a leader,” she added. “His biggest challenge is now to define himself for voters so they can understand what exactly he proposes to do.”Barry Kay, a political science professor at Wilfrid Laurier University, said comparisons between Ford and U.S. President Donald Trump, who also embraced populism, are inevitable, if not entirely accurate.“Obviously, there are parallels,” he said. “We’re talking about somebody who shoots from the hip. Somebody who speaks frequently before he thinks. Somebody who clearly feels comfortable in the role of street fighter.”Ford’s top challenge will be to stay on message, Kay said.“The question is can Ford hold (the Tories’) lead in the polls. I think Elliott would have,” he said. “I think he’s more accident prone.”last_img read more

Wearing FC Barcelona Jersey in UAE Punishable by 15 Years in

Rabat – UAE authorities will soon see themselves turning into the fashion police; in a tweet published by @newsemaratyah, anyone caught wearing the soccer team FCB jersey, which is sponsored by Qatar, will risk 15 years of jail. In an update on the ongoing feud between Qatar and five other Gulf countries, the UAE is taking drastic measures against any individual supporting Qatar. UAE’s attorney general Hamad Saif Al Shamsi said in a statement on Wednesday that sympathizing with Qatar on social media is now considered a “cybercrime punishable by law.” According to Emirati newspaper Gulf News, the UAE has banned people from showcasing expressions of sympathy towards Qatar, and will punish the offenders with a 15-year jail sentence. “Strict and firm action will be taken against anyone who shows sympathy or any form of bias towards Qatar, or against anyone who objects to the position of the United Arab Emirates, whether it be through the means of social media, or any type of written, visual or verbal form,” Al Shamsi told Gulf News in a statement.The Emirati Federal Public Prosecution also stated that those who “threaten the interests, national unity and stability of the UAE will face a jail term from three to 15 years, and a fine up to USD 136 000.” Following the shocking rift between Qatar and its fellow Gulf countries, social media in the region has been swarming with tweets both criticizing and lauding the breaking ties with Qatar. Politically charged hashtags from both supporters and opponents have surfaced on social networks. These measures against #Qatar is unprecedented, the inter-Arab/GCC relations hasn’t seen this escalation since Camp David Accords.— ??? ??????

Sony uses shredded paper as a biobattery power source

first_imgAt the moment, the rechargeable batteries we rely on in our gadgets don’t contain the most environmentally-friendly materials, and aren’t the type of thing anyone should be throwing away. They should be recycled at a specialist recycle center.What would be much more eco-friendly is a way to create power from waste products, but at a level where an individual could do it themselves. Sony has been working to create these so-called bio-batteries, and has just shown one off at the Eco-Products 2011 environmental products fair in Tokyo.Sony’s idea is to provide a battery where by the user adds their own fuel sourced from waste materials. In this case, the proof of concept battery uses a mixture of enzymes to break down shredded pieces of paper. The paper provides the cellulose that is broken down by a first set of enzymes to produce sugar, the second set of enzymes then uses the sugar to produce hydrogen ions and electrons. Finally, the electrons are used to produce electricity through a circuit, while the hydrogen ions form water by being exposed to oxygen in the air.If such a battery were to go commercial, it could see certain waste products such as paper reused to power batteries rather than being recycled outside of the home. In order for that to happen, the battery technology has to produce enough power to make it viable. At the moment, that’s the sticking point, and something Sony has already spent several years trying to improve. It seems at best the bio-battery will power a digital music player.This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a bio-battery in action. Early last year Sony demonstrated a fan being powered by a sugar-filled soft drink. We’ve also see a cell phone modified to run purely on Coca Cola.Read more at Yahoo! Newslast_img read more

PASOK searching for unity and purpose

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram PASOK leader Evangelos Venizelos is hoping that the appearance Wednesday of his predecessors, George Papandreou and Costas Simitis, at the two-day conference marking the 39th anniversary of PASOK’s founding will mark a moment of unity for the troubled party.Venizelos spoke at the event Tuesday ahead of speeches by Papandreou and Simitis Wednesday. He was upbeat about the party’s prospects of recovering from the dramatic decline in support that it experienced over the last few years. “PASOK does not exist, and never existed, to serve its own ends,” he said. “It exists to serve the country, progressive societies and political forces, it exists in the name of its ideas and the responsibilities it has shouldered over time.”The first day of the gathering brought a mixed message regarding what direction PASOK should take in the future. Venizelos devoted part of his speech to attacking SYRIZA, accusing the leftists of being in a “strategic dead-end” and of readopting their 2012 pre-election rhetoric regarding Greece unilaterally tearing up the terms of its bailout.Ex-minister Dimitris Reppas, however, suggested that PASOK should prepare to be a junior coalition partner in a SYRIZA-led government. “PASOK should take the initiative and show that it is ready for the prospect of working with SYRIZA,” he said.last_img read more

5 QUICK QUESTIONS with Festival of Trees Lead Organizer Becky McGrath

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — Wilmington Apple recently caught up with Becky McGrath, lead organizer of We’re One Wilmington’s Festival of Trees, for five quick questions.What’s it like planning one of Wilmington’s most popular community events?“I have a lot of help; it’s certainly not just me. I’ve got an awesome team of 12 volunteers. For example, Karin Bloom takes care of the bake sale. Tammy McElligott handles all the decorating. Nathalie Hayduk takes care of all the entertainment. Jomarie O’Mahoney and Catherine Maiella take care of our Member Social. Jen Bolanos and Pam Almedia tag all the ornaments on the Angel Tree. And we have other team members as well helping out wherever they can. Planning starts in the summer. It’s hours and hours of work put in by tons of people. But it’s really a pleasure. They’re all amazing people to work with. We work really well together.”Are there any changes to this year’s Festival of Trees compared to years past?“Yes, the biggest change this year is we opened a day early, although not to the general public. The event is getting more and more crowded each year. We wanted to make it a more comfortable atmosphere for folks who might be older or need room for wheelchairs and walkers. We invited the Senior Center to come out on Friday morning. A couple of groups from Windsor Place are coming on Friday afternoon. The teachers and staff of Wilmington Public Schools have also been invited to come on Friday after school. Lots of the teachers don’t live in Wilmington, so they may not want to make the drive back to town on the weekend. There’s a lot of trees this year decorated by schools and student groups.”How many donations are you anticipating this year?“We’re estimating 118 donations, which includes 60-70 tall trees. It’s definitely a record year for donations. I think we’re reaching the maximum allowed for the venue. When you visit this weekend, just think of all the people — hundreds of community members — who put their heart and soul into these trees. We’re so grateful to the community.”How many people attend Festival of Trees each year? Will the event ever outgrow Villanova Hall?“Based on raffle ticket sales, we suspect about 2,000 people come through during the weekend. We really like where we are. The location keeps it feeling like a nice a community event. It’s so close to the Common. It’s really convenient for all the other activities going on, including the Town Tree Lighting on Saturday night and the Sons of Italy’s Breakfast with Santa on Sunday morning at the Knights of Columbus. It really is just the perfect spot. I think we’ll stay here, we just might have to cap the number of donations at 120, our magic number.”How much does the Festival of Trees raise each year? Where do the funds go?“Each year it climbs. The amount raised almost doubles each year, which is pretty amazing. Last year, after expenses, we cleared $50,000. And that’s without charging any admission fee — that’s raffle sales and bake sales.The event’s proceeds allows We’re One Wilmington to do so many things. We recently made a $2,000 sponsorship to the Elderly Services Department’s new Memory Cafe. We sponsored the “Revive Civility” program at the Wilmington Memorial Library.  We purchase holiday gifts requested by Wilmington families. We’re supporting 21 families this year. We paid over $3,000 in utility bills for people in emergency financial need. We have care packages we send out to residents who are struggling financially or emotionally. We hand out $8,500 in scholarships annually. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.”BONUS QUESTION: Which is your favorite tree this year?“I have to admit, the cupcake tree is my favorite. It’s so adorable.”Becky McGrath (bottom left) and some of her team of organizers.Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook. Follow Wilmington Apple on Twitter. Follow Wilmington Apple on Instagram.

Rohingyas enter Bangladesh even after MoU

first_imgRohingya, Prothom AloPeople of Myanmar’s minority group – Muslim Rohingyas – are still fleeing the persecution carried out by country’s military in the Rakhine state and are taking refuge in Bangladesh’s Cox’s Bazar even after Myanmar in a Memorandum of Understanding signed recently with Bangladesh agreed to take back their nationals.As many as 19 members of four families entered Bangladesh crossing Naf river on Monday afternoon.

Apple now relies on Google Cloud Platform and Amazon S3 for

first_imgIt’s no secret, Apple has been relying on third-party cloud companies for iCloud. And CNBC spotted an interesting tidbit in Apple’s own documents. The company now relies on Amazon S3 and Google Cloud Platform’s storage product to store iCloud data.Back in 2016, CRN reported that Apple signed with Google for cloud storage. But Apple’s document represents the first official confirmation that this deal happened.You can find the information in Apple’s iOS 11 security guide that was published in January 2018. The company mentions that user files are divided into tiny chunks and encrypted. The encryption keys and metadata information are stored on Apple’s own servers. But the encrypted files are stored on third-party services.While users have no idea that Amazon and Google are managing their iCloud data, Amazon and Google can’t do anything with those files without the encryption keys. So it seems highly unlikely that Amazon and Google are looking at your data. “The encrypted chunks of the file are stored, without any user-identifying information, using third-party storage services, such as S3 and Google Cloud Platform,” you can read in the document.In the past, Apple has mentioned Microsoft Azure in its partners. The wording of the document isn’t really clear. Apple could be using more storage services without naming them directly.In all cases, this is a great example of asymmetric competition. While Apple and Google are fighting really hard to grab market share of the smartphone market, Apple is also Google’s client. Apple also competes with Amazon and Microsoft in other areas. So Apple would need to step up its cloud hosting game to cut ties with its competitors altogether.Featured Image: Erik Von Weber/Getty Imageslast_img read more

Top Stories The vital role family plays in society Putin and Xi on Friday oversaw the signing of 32 contracts including a 300 billion ruble ($6 billion) loan to build a high-speed railway link.Russian gas giant Gazprom also signed a memorandum of understanding with China’s CNPC to build a gas pipeline to China and sell up to 30 billion cubic meters of gas, but the details have yet to be hammered out.Putin said after the talks that Russia would welcome the involvement of Chinese companies in tapping the giant Vankor oil and gas fields in eastern Siberia, adding that specifics are being worked out.Putin and Xi also talked about the Silk Road Economic Belt, an ambitious Beijing project intended to encourage the infrastructure development in formerly Soviet Central Asia.Moscow in the past had been jealous about China’s efforts to increase its sway in the region, but the two leaders seemed to reach common ground on the sensitive issue during Friday’s talks in the Kremlin.They issued a statement saying that while conducting the project, China will coordinate closely the Eurasian Economic Union, an economic alliance that includes Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan.“It means reaching a new level of partnership that envisages common economic space on the entire Eurasian continent,” Putin said after the talks. 5 treatments for adult scoliosislast_img read more

marathon shootout featuring 18 penalties to finally end their jinx against their old rivals in major tournaments and reach the Euro 2016 semi-finals on Saturday (RESULTS | STANDINGS) They will now face the winners of the other quarter-final between hosts France and Iceland who play on Sunday After a tense tactical battle ended 1-1 after extra time the usually clinical Germans missed three spot kicks but still progressed courtesy of even more wayward shooting by their opponents who failed to convert four of their penalties Jonas Hector had the honour of sending Germany through by putting away their ninth kick but even his effort only just made it under Gianluigi Buffon’s dive “It’s difficult to find the words I’m overjoyed that the ball went in” said Hector “I can’t describe the feeling I took my heart in my hands and just wanted to knock it in” Germany coach Joachim Loew added: “I congratulated him (Hector) It was a very special situation I had a good feeling when he was

stretching back to the 1962 World Cup Italy’s four wins included a World Cup final and two semi-finals and the Euro 2012 semis The other four games were drawn TENSE START The first half was as tense tactical and cagey as expected between two teams who had only conceded one goal between them so far in the tournament Both sides began with three-man defences although Italy also pulled wing backs Alessandro Florenzi and Mattia De Sciglio into the back line every time they sensed danger It took 42 minutes for either side to produce a genuine chance but Germany forward Thomas Mueller usually deadly in front of goal scuffed his shot and Buffon saved easily Germany’s passing was slicker and they broke through in the 65th minute when Hector’s pass into the area was deflected off Bonucci and fell perfectly for Ozil to guide into the net It seemed that might be enough to win the game but Italy equalised out of the blue 13 minutes later Florenzi curled the ball into the area Boateng went up for a challenge with Chiellini with his arms raised like a basketball player and the ball hit the German’s arm Bonucci fired a superb penalty low into the bottom right hand corner beyond Manuel Neuer’s reach Italy suddenly found a new lease of life as Graziano Pelle had a shot deflected wide following a quick break and De Sciglio fired into the side-netting Little happened in extra time but

trend in the previous years now demonetisation is likely to aggravate the situation further” he said Asked to elaborate he explains: “Demonetisation has hit hide procurement at the lower levels of the chain Farmers won’t sell their old cattle to skinners or slaughter houses because it involves payment of cash The tanneries need to pay procurers in cash which they are not in a position to do The leather industry cannot rely on tanneries because there’s no guarantee of steady supply We cannot accept orders from our international clients knowing that we may not be able to fulfill our commitment
