OTTAWA — Sept. 30 might become a new statutory holiday commemorating victims of residential schools.The House of Commons heritage committee approved a measure Tuesday to make the last day of September a National Truth and Reconciliation Day.That date is already used as an informal occasion to commemorate the experiences of residential-school students, called Orange Shirt Day.It’s called that in memory of a piece of a clothing one First Nations girl in British Columbia had taken away from her on her first day at a residential school in 1973.The heritage committee put the new federal holiday into Bill C-369, which also creates a National Indigenous Peoples’ Day on June 21 — one day would be for commemoration, the other for celebration.The bill has yet to go to the Commons for a final vote.The Canadian Press
Fans can come up with several reasons for why it’s good to eat dessert first. But the Dairy Queen system has come up with the best reason yet.On Thursday, July 27, for that day only, the Dairy Queen system is encouraging fans to Eat Dessert First during the 12th Annual Miracle Treat Day, when $1 or more from every Blizzard Treat sold at participating DQ Grill & Chill and Dairy Queen locations throughout the U.S. will be donated to local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH).Annually at CMNH one in 10 children is treated and 32 million treatments are provided. Funds raised during Miracle Treat Day fund critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care to help save and improve the lives of those children. While CMNH raises funds and awareness for more than 170 children’s hospitals across the U.S. and Canada, all funds raised during Miracle Treat Day stay in local communities.“When you visit a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, you are inspired by how brave the children and their families are,” said Barry Westrum, executive vice president of marketing for American Dairy Queen Corporation (ADQ). “Then you see how passionate the doctors and nurses are and you realize what a significant impact the dollars we raise can have on so many lives. We have two great moms this year, Hoda Kotb and Tia Mowry, who are joining us in supporting Miracle Treat Day.”New mom and co-anchor of the fourth hour of Today, Hoda Kotb is the honorary chair of Miracle Treat Day. Kotb has ties to CMNH. She lifted the spirits of children with cancer and raised money for pediatric cancer as part of Today’s Shine a Light series a few years ago that included the shooting of a music video with pediatric patients at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, part of the CMNH network.Also this year, Tia Mowry, actress, cookbook author and mom, will deliver Blizzard Treats and visit with patients and their families at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles in advance of the DQ Miracle Treat Day.“July is a special month for the Dairy Queen system. It’s National Ice Cream Month and we are celebrating by giving back to our local communities in a big way with Miracle Treat Day,” said Westrum. “We thank Hoda and Tia for their support of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and can’t wait to raise money on Miracle Treat Day.”Last year, DQ operators across the U.S. and Canada raised more than $4 million on Miracle Treat Day for their local CMN Hospitals. Since 1984, the Dairy Queen system has raised more than $125 million for the charity through fundraising efforts including Miracle Treat Day, the Miracle Balloon campaign and other local initiatives.The featured Miracle Treat Day Blizzard Treat of the Day is Oreo, the most popular Blizzard Treat to date. All other Blizzard flavors are also available that day.For more information about Miracle Treat Day, visit MiracleTreatDay.com and connect on Twitter using #MiracleTreatDay.For more information about the Dairy Queen system, visit DairyQueen.com.

Ohio State senior midfielder Megan McGillis handles the ball in the Buckeyes’ 13-9 win over Vermont on Feb. 12 at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. Credit: James King | Lantern reporterThe Ohio State women’s lacrosse team (3-0) scored early and often in its 17-8 win over Cincinnati (0-1) on Sunday. The Buckeyes solved their early-scoring woes of the previous two games, netting five unanswered goals in the first four minutes of play.“The theme the whole week was getting off to a fast start,” coach Alexis Venechanos said. “I felt like we came in really focused and we were really on a mission. We knew Cincinnati was going to be well coached.”This was the sixth meeting between the two schools and the third in the past three seasons. The Buckeyes’ win kept them undefeated in six meetings against the Bearcats, with the series dating back to 2008.Within the first two minutes, sophomore midfielders Mackenzie Maring and Erika Keselman scored giving OSU the early lead. Then, for the second time this season, freshman midfielder Liza Hernandez scored two goals within 30 seconds, her first two of four on the day.“We wanted to just come out and play our game,” Hernandez said. “It feels amazing (to score four times). I just know I couldn’t have done it without my teammates and everyone around me.”Senior midfielder Morgan Fee added a goal of her own — her first of two in the first half — putting the Buckeyes up 5-0 with 25:16 remaining. The Bearcats would win the next draw, gaining possession of the ball for the first time in the game. Cincinnati took advantage of their first time with the ball when junior midfielder Brooke Kovinsky scored the first goal of the year for her program at the 24:52 mark in the first half. OSU went on to win 11 draw controls and take 25 shots compared to Cincinnati’s five and 12, respectively, showing how much the Buckeyes dominated the ball early. Venechanos said that a lot of that is attributed to the stellar play of Fee, who won 7 draw controls in the game.“She stepped up huge,” Venechanos said. “We put her in for the last five draws of the last game and she got those. So she’s been working really hard and I’m really happy for her.”Maring and Keselman again would score back-to-back goals moving OSU’s lead up six with 22:06 left in the first half. The Bearcats would respond with two goals from freshmen Monica Borzillo and McKenna Rushford.Up 7-3, OSU went on a 5-1 scoring run to close out the half, which included a hat trick from junior attacker Molly Wood, Fee’s second of the game and sophomore midfielder Baley Parrott’s sixth goal of the year.“We were just ready to show what we are and show what we’re made of this year,” Wood said. “We were firing on all cylinders today, we were all in control. It was really fun.”The Buckeyes opened up the scoring yet again in the second half when freshman attacker Alex Vander Molen scored her first of the day, second of the year, giving OSU a 13-4 lead. Cincinnati would try and fight its way back into the contest, going on a 3-1 scoring run cutting the Buckeyes’ lead to seven with 13:43 to play.OSU was plagued with turnovers in the second half, committing eight, turning their offense stagnant until Hernandez was able to score her fourth goal with 5:42 left on the clock. The Bearcats netted another goal, but OSU closed the game out with two more goals giving them the win, 17-8. One goal came from junior attacker Lauren Sherry and the other from sophomore attacker Alyssa Amorison in her season debut for the Buckeyes.For the second straight game freshman goalie Jillian Rizzo collected double digit saves, this time 11 on the day. Rizzo has been a constant safety blanket for this OSU team, helping them hold leads and coming up with big saves when needed.“She’s amazing,” Hernandez said. “She literally keeps us in games sometimes. I know she’s a freshman but she really doesn’t play like a freshman and we definitely need that.”In a game that was moved to Ohio Stadium due to some serendipitous February weather, OSU led from wire to wire. The Buckeyes, who took 40 shots compared to the Bearcats’ 25, were able to couple an aggressive attack on the offensive end with stout defensive play. “It’s always fun to score in the ‘Shoe,” Wood said. “But it was a team effort and that was what was really special.”OSU has the Stanford Cardinal up next, Friday at home at 6 p.m. Stanford is currently 1-3 on the year and have a game at Saint Mary’s on Tuesday before making the trip to Columbus.“Stanford is going to give us new challenges,” Venechanos said. “So we’re going to watch film this week, work on ourselves and then worry about Stanford … but it will be a big test for us.”

Truly important.”The programme was started in recent years by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht to encourage the growth of the Irish language overseas.A further 18 students will be awarded with scholarships and will take part in the intensive programme from 20 June to 11 July this summer.Hands up who feels inadequate?Column: Let’s stop the blame game about learning IrishDailyEdge.ie: 11 songs that will take you right back to your days in the GaeltachtHow many Ballyduffs are there?

Téléphonie mobile : le 07 s’installe lundi chez Orange et BouyguesFrance – Orange et Bouygues Telecom ont annoncé qu’ils commenceraient dès lundi prochain à attribuer des numéros de téléphone débutant par 07. Une petite révolution pour la téléphonie mobile.Avec la généralisation de l’usage des téléphones mobiles et le développement de nombreux équipements dotés de puces RFID, et donc d’un numéro de mobile, les combinaisons commençant par 06 arrivent à saturation. Les numéros de téléphonie mobile pourront par conséquent désormais également débuter par 07, et les opérateurs Orange (France Telecom) et Bouygues entameront la distribution de ces nouveaux numéros dès lundi.À lire aussiLivebox 3 d’Orange : abonnement, location, réseau…Des infos complémentaires sur la Livebox Play”Nous sommes presque arrivés au bout de l’histoire des 06 : ils avaient été attribués il y a à peu près 15 ans, avec 100 millions de numéros disponibles”, souligne auprès de l’AFP, le directeur général de la Fédération française des télécoms, Yves Le Mouël.Après une consultation publique, c’est en mai 2009 que le régulateur des télécoms, l’Arcep, a décidé d’ouvrir “progressivement la tranche 07”, et ce sont Orange et Bouygues Telecom qui seront les premiers à attribuer ces nouvelles combinaisons. Pour SFR, cette petite révolution attendra le mois de juillet. Des numéros commençant par 06 seront bien sûr encore distribués de façon automatique, et aléatoire, aux côtés des combinaisons en 07. Il sera donc impossible pour les clients mobiles de choisir entre les deux tranches.Le 29 avril 2010 à 17:27 • Emmanuel Perrin

On top of a new name, StudioTEN also has a new face. Concurrent with the rebranding, TEN brought in renowned advertising executive Jerry Solomon, whose credits include the Emmy-winning Ad Council campaign “Love Has No Labels,” and, most notably, Apple’s famous “Get a Mac” commercials, which Adweek named the “campaign of the decade” in 2010. Jerry Solomon Folio: Coming over from the advertising side of the industry, what attracted you to TEN? Solomon: We’re agnostic. If there’s somebody at Motor Trend who has a great, authentic voice and wants to jump onto the filmmaking side, I’d say bring them on. Likewise, if I’ve got somebody who is a great filmmaker but wants to get more into the car world, bring them on, too. That’s what’s great about this place — I’ve got a group of creatives here who not only ideate, but execute. We might have someone sitting in the room who comes up with a great concept, and then when it comes time to execute it, that person might go ahead and direct it. We’re really seeing projects all the way through, with a singular voice. Solomon: The original programming stuff that we do is remarkable. We have nine programs that go across our YouTube channel, which has the largest automotive audience out there: over 4.5 million subscribers. People are watching these things in crazy numbers. Brands want to go ahead and be a part of that experience. Key to achieving that, says Dickey, is an aggressive expansion of its video production arm, which the company launched in 2014 and subsequently nurtured into a robust operation, comprising over 50 employees and a 30,000-square-foot Los Angeles studio. Solomon: The best clients are the ones that realize that they want to bring value to the audience. They have to think of themselves almost as programmers with a brand message. It’s definitely a challenge to say, “We know that you want to promote this car, but let’s find an entertaining way to do it that feels holistic or seamless to our audience.” The studio, formerly known as “MindOverEye,” was rebranded “StudioTEN” last month in an effort to more closely align it with TEN’s overall corporate structure. Folio: So is it safe to say that we can expect branded content to be a major focus for StudioTEN going forward? “We want to be the most powerful automotive media company in the world,” CEO Scott Dickey tells Folio:. Jerry Solomon: I had been in the commercial business for 20-plus years. It was always a talent sell, and it was also an interruptive medium. When you make TV commercials as long as I have, it was purely executional. You sat there and the stuff that you made was just going to go on TV, and it was going to be that stuff in between shows that people didn’t really like. I could see it in the way the budgets were and our interaction with agencies — you started to feel very outdated. One of my biggest challenges is determining how a brand gets their voice into that arena, not just in the original programming, but also across advertising, delivered to that enthusiast in a way that’s authentic and genuine and doesn’t interrupt their experience. We’re going to make a lot of that stuff: original programming, branded content, with events and social around all of it. “There was always a concern that having our own production studio might be a threat to our agency partners, so we wanted it at arm’s length,” says Dickey. “But branded content has become such a huge part of the equation that it no longer made sense to have [the studio] differentiated.” The relationship between consumers and brands and that interaction was changing. My two teenaged daughters do not watch TV commercials. They may watch branded content if it’s interesting to them, but they like a non-interrupted experience. I wanted a challenge to figure out what was part of the future, and TEN offered that to me. If we continue to serve our audience, it will continue to grow. If it continues to grow and we’re communicating with them the right way, then brands will be interested in working with us, because we own that group who really feels we are authentic. Solomon: You can’t be a part of the interruption; you need to be a part of the experience. We have to make stuff for an audience and in a brand voice, and we have to make it authentic. It’s really a combination of audience, idea, and execution. I think they used to live in sort of mutually exclusive worlds, and now they all need to be interconnected. Folio: What are some ways in which that relationship between consumers and brands has changed? That’s what we want to create in a digital experience, where the best brands come to us and say, “Take something with our car, make it fun, connect our brand to your audience, and feel that you’re giving them something that’s not just interruptive.” TEN: The Enthusiast Network, whose brands include Motor Trend, Automobile, and Hot Rod, among several others, enters 2017 with a clear but ambitious goal. Solomon, who will oversee StudioTEN as managing director, was chosen because of his deep understanding of how to create content that resonates with consumers while still delivering a brand message, according to Dickey. Solomon: We want to be the ultimate destination for video in automotive and action/outdoor. The investments we’re going to make will be in greater creative talent. We’re definitely looking to create partnerships in high-tech spaces like VR and AR. It’s about us connecting our original programming and branded content with our audience across platforms. So it’s going to be an investment in both talent and new technology. Folio: Is it a challenge to balance delivering a client’s message while also providing value to your audience? Folio: sat down with Solomon to learn more about the future of branded content, original video production, and how he plans to use his commercial experience to bring StudioTEN to new heights. Folio: What kinds of new talent are you looking to bring on? When it comes to talent, if someone’s got the right attitude and loves telling great stories, I don’t care if you come from Timbuktu or Motor Trend. I can teach people about the business and about content creation, but there’s certain innate talent you can’t teach. I base it on the individual. It’s not about just trying to find the cheapest solution. One of the greatest compliments on anything I’ve ever been involved in was when The New York Times did a piece about the Mac and PC commercials. Having executive produced all of those spots, when they did an article saying, “The best series on TV is a commercial,” they saw that campaign as almost interstitial programming that worked alongside broadcast TV. Folio: What are some of your initial plans for building out StudioTEN?
‘Game of Thrones’ Director Explains Why Arya Ambushed the Night King’Game of Thrones’ Star Sophie Turner Predicts Sansa Stark’s Future Stay on target Game of Thrones is coming to an end, with its shortened final season airing in 2018. That doesn’t mean HBO is leaving Westeros for good though. Variety reports that the network has deals with four different writers to create new shows set in George R.R. Martin’s universe. Talks of a possible spinoff series began last year at the Television Critics Associations summer press tour. HBO programming president Casey Bloys said that while everyone involved was open to the idea, it would have to make sense creatively.That still appears to be the attitude even with these recent deals. A spokesperson told Variety that the writers are being given “as much or as little time as they need” to come up with their spinoff shows. “As with all our development, we will evaluate what we have when the scripts are in.” So it sounds like even though they have four possible spinoffs in the works, that doesn’t mean all four will actually be produced. It also sounds like we shouldn’t expect a spinoff to happen right after Game of Thrones airs its final episode. As much as we’d all like to stay in Westeros, it’s better if the network takes its time to make another great show.The writers involved are Kong: Skull Island‘s Max Borenstein, Kingsman: The Golden Circle‘s Jane Goldman, Legend‘s Brian Helgeland, and Mad Men‘s Carly Wray. That’s a pretty impressive group of writers. I kind of hope all of these projects lead to something, as I’d like to see each one of their takes on George R.R. Martin’s world.The spinoff series will explore different eras in Westeros’s history, which definitely has potential. One of the things that made A Song of Fire and Ice such an engrossing read was the fact that Westeros felt like a living world. It had a long, rich, detailed history, and there are potentially thousands of stories that can be told in this setting. I wonder if any of them will be set after Game of Thrones. Like, is there an era of Westeros that’s equivalent to our modern day? What does that world look like? In any case, considering how good the series became after it was able to go off in its own direction, I can’t wait to see what these writers can do with the ability to create wholly original characters and stories.Whatever stories these spinoffs try to tell, it’ll likely be a long time before we see any hint of what they’re about or when they take place. In the meantime, we still have two more seasons of Game of Thrones to look forward to. The seven-episode seventh season premieres on HBO on July 16, 2017.

GUATEMALA CITY, Guatemala – A genocide trial against former dictator Efraín Ríos Montt, begun 50 days ago and suspended by a judge’s order over a technicality, resumed on Wednesday, with judges rejecting repeated motions by the defense team to delay the trial.A prosecutor asked judges to deliver a 75-year prison sentence to Ríos Montt, a former dictator who supervised a “scorched-earth” policy of war in the early 1980s during Guatemala’s brutal civil war. The prosecutor also asked that Ríos Montt be placed under preventive detention and removed from house arrest. The trial is a first for Guatemala – and the world – in that a country is holding criminal genocide proceedings in its own courts. Judge Jazmín Barrios said a verdict would be coming soon, although she did not indicate a specific date. Francisco García was restored as lead defending attorney on Wednesday after having been expelled from the courtroom on March 19 for what a judge characterized as obstructionism and ethics violations. García asked for the trial to be suspended again, but was rejected by the court. He followed with an outburst directed at judges, telling them, “You are not above the law. I will not rest until I see you behind bars.”Justice Barrios responded by saying, “We will not accept any type of threat.” She ordered the trial to move to closing testimony and arguments.Ríos Montt’s former head of military intelligence, Gen. José Rodríguez, is also on trial for genocide.Prosecutor Orlando López, who throughout the trial had called more than 100 family members of massacre victims and presented forensic anthropology evidence, asked for the 75-year prison sentence for both men for acts of genocide and crimes against humanity.Ríos Montt and Rodríguez are on trial for the massacre by the Army of 1,771 Ixil Mayans in the Department of Quiché during the Ríos Montt dictatorship, which lasted from 1982-1983. “[Ríos Montt] had absolute power over the military,” López said, adding that military plans approved by Ríos Montt ordered soldiers to classify indigenous Ixils as “internal enemies” for their alleged collaboration with guerrilla fighters during the 36-year civil war, which lasted from 1960-1996. That, said López, consisted of genocide, as it specifically targeted the destruction of an ethnic group. Ríos Montt has been under house arrest since January 2012, and Rodríguez has been in a military hospital. The prosecutor asked that both be taken into custody, as they are a “flight risk.” “What 75 years will do is rejuvenate me,” Ríos Montt said sarcastically to journalists as he exited the courtroom. The trial will continue on Thursday with closing statements from representatives of the victims and the defense. Judges will then set a date for a issuing final verdicts. So far, Ríos Montt has not taken the stand in his own defense. Facebook Comments No related posts.
SAO PAULO (AP) – More than 25,000 passengers in Brazil saw flights delayed or cancelled after a damaged cargo jet blocked the lone runway at one of the country’s busiest airports for two days, officials said Monday.Separately, the check-in system at Tam airlines, Brazil’s biggest, was down for three hours early Monday at all locations around the world where the company operates, adding to the air transport chaos in Latin America’s biggest nation. Critics say improving the nation’s woeful airports is one of its biggest challenges before it hosts the 2014 World Cup. 5 greatest Kentucky Derby finishes Former Arizona Rep.

Hundreds of thousands of fans will fly between the 12 host cities for matches.Brazil’s airports have buckled under demand that tripled in the past decade. In 2002, airlines flew 34.3 million passengers on flights originating in Brazil. That rose to 107.8 million last year, Brazil’s civil aviation agency reported.In an effort to make quick improvements, Brazil’s government earlier this year privatized operations at three of the nation’s main airports, including at Campinas, awarding $14 billion in contracts to three consortiums that will expand and run terminals.However, the Campinas airport is still being operated by Infraero, the state-run agency that has long run the country’s airports. The other airports privatized include the nation’s busiest airport in Sao Paulo, along with those in the capital Brasilia and in Campinas.Together, the three airports are responsible for 30 percent of Brazil’s passenger traffic.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Azul Airlines, which operates about 85 percent of the flights at the Campinas airport north of Sao Paulo, said late Monday afternoon that its flights would resume normal operations by early evening after the damaged cargo jet was removed from the airport’s only runway. The jet, owned by U.S.-based Centurion Cargo, blew out a tire upon landing Saturday night _ it took Brazilian officials until Monday to locate the proper heavy equipment to remove the plane.The Campinas airport, also known as Viracopos, was Brazil’s ninth-busiest last year, according to government statistics, and was earlier this year named as one of three the government said it would privatize.“Although operations at Viracopos have been freed up, delays and cancellations may still occur,” Azul said in a statement.A spokeswoman for Tam airlines declined to say how many flights were delayed or cancelled because of the problems with its check-in system.

Bank of Cyprus, the island’s largest lender, has said that it will post a loss of €550m in its half-year results as a result of an increase of provisions for loan impairments by €500m and will return to profitability next year.Following the increase in provisioning aimed at de-risking its balance sheet, the bank, which posted a 14.4 common equity tier 1 capital ratio at the end of the first quarter, will not require additional equity as its “capital levels remain adequate,” it said in an emailed statement on Monday.“Although allocating an incremental €500m of capital to de-risk the balance sheet through increased provision coverage will result in the group posting a loss of approximately €550m for the half year to 30 June 2017, the reality is that the strength of the group’s capital position has allowed the group to accommodate this without the need to raise any additional core equity capital,” the bank said. “The landmark €1bn equity raise carried out in the summer of 2014 has to date proven sufficient to support the group’s recovery and allowed it support the recovering economy.

The provisioning coverage ratio rose to 42 per cent to 41 per cent respectively.The step is part of its effort to explore “innovative strategic solutions” to accelerate the balance-sheet de-risking.“It is too early to go into detail on what these transformational initiatives could include but it suffices to say that detailed work is underway with a number of external counterparties,” it said.The lender, whose depositors saw almost half of their uninsured deposits turned into equity in the 2013 banking crisis, added that it already extended €1bn in fresh credit to the economy in the first half of the year, roughly as much as the whole of 2016, supporting growth. In the first quarter this year it posted a €2m after tax profit.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
