Andre Villas Boas Chelsea’s new manager

first_imgAll eyes are on Blues’ New Manager. The English Premier League runners up Chelsea officially unveiled their new manager Andre Villas Boas.  The former Porto manager was handed a three-year contract that starts with immediate effect on a reported contract of five-million pounds sterling a year.  It’s not the first time though that Boas will be working at Stamford Bridge having assisted Jose Mourinho during his time at the club.  Fresh from guiding Portuguese giants FC Porto to domestic league and Europa League titles, his first task will be to decide at what stage the team – featuring ageing stars like Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba and John Terry – needs to be dismantled and rebuilt. The man often compared to his former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is hoping to bring some much-needed dynamism to a club that failed to land any silverware last season.For more News, click here.last_img read more

Provinces Chip Seal Crew Saving Tax Payer Dollars

first_imgThe province is paying less and paving more. Bill Estabrooks, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal, announced today, Nov. 22, that the province has saved $2.3 million since it introduced a provincial chip seal crew. In 2008-09, the province paid $91,000 per kilometre of double chip seal. In 2011, the provincial chip seal crew did the work for $46,000 per kilometre. With the one-time only start up costs included, the cost was $50,000 per kilometre. “This summer our provincial crew proved they could do the work for half the cost of what the private sector was charging us in 2009,” said Bill Estabrooks, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal. “The province is working to provide Nova Scotians with safe roads at an affordable cost. By introducing new competition to the private sector, government is ensuring that it continues to pay half as much for chip sealing next year.” Not only is the provincial chip seal crew able to do the work for much less money, the province is also paying less for tenders. In 2008-09, the province paid $91,000 per kilometre of double chip seal. In 2011, the tender price was $40,000. “In just a partial paving season, the province managed to save $2.3 million on double chip seal,” said Mr. Estabrooks. “Imagine how much better shape our roads would be in today if we had started this 10 years ago. By paying less we are paving more.” The chip seal initiative is a three-year commitment. At the end of three years, the province will have an audit done to evaluate the program. The province is responsible for 23,000 kilometres of road. The total amount of money government has spent on Nova Scotia’s roads, highways and bridges is close to $1 billion. The chip seal work represents $2 million of the overall highway improvement budget, which is less than half a percentage point.last_img read more

Nova Scotia Teachers Union Opposed Conciliation Board Statement by Minister

We maintain that we want to listen and work with teachers. We are committed to strengthening our education system for every student in our schools.

Trudeau grilled on NAFTA deadline downplays awkward moment with Trump

first_imgVANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – Uncertainty around the upcoming NAFTA deadline and an awkward moment with U.S. President Donald Trump took the spotlight, as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wrapped up his visit to the United Nations.The U.S. has been talking about moving forward on a NAFTA deal with Mexico and leaving Canada out in the cold. But Trudeau insists an agreement is still possible.“We will keep working as long as it takes to get to the right deal for Canada,” said Trudeau.There are just days to go before the latest U.S.-imposed deadline.“We will keep working on a broad range of alternatives. A broad range of paths are ahead of us. We’re going to keep focusing on trying to get to the right deal for Canadians,” added Trudeau.He did not go into specifics, but did note he’s received assurances from the president that there will be no steel and auto tariffs if a NAFTA deal is struck.RELATED: Trudeau restarts UN charm offensive under shadow of Trump’s trade threatsMeanwhile, Trudeau is downplaying what some viewed as an awkward handshake with Trump.As Trudeau circled a table, chatting with other world leaders, he had to touch Trump’s shoulder to get his attention. Trump stayed seated, as they had a brief exchange and shook hands, but later stood up for interactions with th e leaders of Mexico and Egypt.“I don’t think there’s anything to read into it,” said Trudeau to reporters at the UN.“An interaction — like so many are in UN — quick but cordial.”Trudeau said it wasn’t the right time for a chat, since he caught the president while he was reading notes before a toast he was about to give.last_img read more

Postal negotiators still talking as Senate vote on backtowork bill approaches

first_imgOTTAWA — Both sides say their negotiators remain at the table as a Senate vote on legislation that would force an end to rotating walkouts at Canada Post inches closer.Canada Post says it’s delivering packages this weekend, but at much lower volumes than normal at this time of year.A spokesman for the Crown corporation says work restrictions imposed by the Canadian Union of Postal Workers, including a ban on overtime, mean about 30,000 parcels will be delivered to Canadians over the weekend.Jon Hamilton says that number is normally in the range of 500,000 packages in late November.The Senate is set to resume debate tomorrow afternoon (2 p.m. ET) on back-to-work legislation that was introduced by the Trudeau Liberals last week and passed in the House of Commons.A Senate official says a final vote on the bill is expected tomorrow, possibly by early evening with royal assent soon afterwards, barring any proposed amendments that, if passed, could see the legislation returned to the Commons.Postal workers have been holding rotating strikes across the country since Oct. 22, creating substantial backlogs at Canada Post’s main sorting plants in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal.Picket lines were up on Sunday in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., as well as in a few areas of British Columbia.CUPW national president Mike Palecek says “all options are on the table” as the union decides how to fight the back-to-work legislation, which the union says violates the rights of postal employees to free and collective bargaining.

Top UN officials urge global movement of minds to realise universal values

“The Academic Impact aims to generate a global movement of minds to promote a new culture of intellectual social responsibility,” the Secretary-General told the conference, held on 1 and 2 November in advance of the formal launch of the initiative, which will take place at UNHQ in New York on 18-19 November. In institutional terms, Academic Impact will serve as a clearing house to match academic innovation with particular areas of the UN’s work, including neglected areas of research, countries in need of specific help, research that will help deliver concrete change on the ground, and the best ideas to meet the Millennium Development Goals by 2015. “It is animated by a commitment to certain bedrock principles, among them, freedom of inquiry, opinion and speech; education opportunity for all; global citizenship; sustainability; and dialogue,” the Secretary-General added. Mr. Akasaka, UN Under-Secretary General for Communications and Public Information, spoke of the integrity and universality of the initiative. “It is our conviction that principles inherent in the UN Charter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights are universal values that education can promote and help to fulfil,” he said. “There can be no alliance more formidable than that between scholarship and social responsibility.” Mr. Akasaka added that the spirit and intent of the UN’s Academic Impact initiative was “to unleash minds and their potential by asserting the right to enquire; the right to challenge every dogma, even if it happens to be the only dogma prevalent at the moment; to allow the liberty to express views and opinions, and to acknowledge the responsibility to substantiate them.” He said the conference, organized by China’s Ministry of Education, and attended by some 200 representatives from more than 80 universities and research institutes had helped to define the core principles of the initiative in advance of its New York launch. 2 November 2010Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and senior UN communications chief Kiyo Akasaka have urged academics and scholars to spearhead a movement to further freedom of expression and educational opportunity for all, at a conference on the UN’s Academic Impact initiative in Shanghai. read more

In special meeting UN weighs measures to prevent terrorists from exploiting the

“Today’s topic…brings us to the fine line between benevolent and malevolent: freedoms and human rights apply to anyone anywhere, but only as long as they do not call into question the enjoyment of these freedoms and human rights by others,” Jeffrey Feltman, the Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs, told a special meeting of the UN Counter-Terrorism Committee. “It is precisely [the] exploitation by terrorists and violent extremists that can easily result in us restricting human rights and fundamental freedoms,” he continued, acknowledging that while it is now “a given that ICT is part of the equation in our effort to achieve a more sustainable, equitable and connected world,” it is this free flow of information that has led the Islamic Stat of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and other extremist groups to successfully use the Internet to broadcast their ideology and to recruit foreign terrorist fighters.Indeed, ISIL, Mr. Feltman continued, has raised the exploitation of the Internet and social media to a new level, luring over 30,000 foreign terrorist fighters from over 100 countries to join the conflicts in Syria and Iraq or inciting individuals to commit terrorist acts in their home countries. Thus, local and regional conflicts have unprecedented global repercussions.“We cannot allow the internet to be abused to undermine the foundations of our societies,” he told the day-long event, which also featured opening remarks from Raimonda Murmokaite Chair of the Counter-Terrorism Committee and Jean-Paul Laborde, Executive Director of the UN Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate (CTED).“How do we make our preventive and counter-measures more effective without calling into question the respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms?” Mr. Feltman asked, and noted that the respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms is central to the answer: where rights and freedoms are jeopardized or granted selectively, the potential for grievances grows and can in turn provide fertile ground for recruitment by terrorist and violent extremist groups, ever more cost-effectively and far-reaching thanks to ICT.The UN and Member States – working closely with the private sector and civil society – must act together to prevent and counter the exploitation of ICT resources and also develop their own effective strategic communications tools to expose the hypocrisy of terrorist and violent extremist groups as well as inspire and instil in potential recruits tangible alternatives, he underscored.“The United Nations sees its role in support of Member States both as convener and provider of capacity-building,” stated Mr. Feltman, going to spotlight three core areas of activities: UN coherence; innovative dialogue with new partners; and a global framework.Specifically on that issue, he announced that Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will release, in the coming days, a Plan of Action to Prevent Violent Extremism, which will make strategic recommendations to address the drivers of violent extremism and to broaden our approach beyond ongoing, essential security-based counter-terrorism measures. “It will call for greater attention to strategic communications at all levels. It will put an emphasis on youth, focusing on the interface between youth and social media, putting young people at the centre of our efforts to address the misuse of the internet,” added Mr. Feltman.To complement Member States’ efforts, he said that the UN Centre for Counter-Terrorism is exploring opportunities for capacity-building programmes to assist them in designing strategic communications that respond to the specific challenges posed by violent extremist communications.As for what he called the even broader UN-provided framework, Mr. Feltman stressed that the UN Charter and international human rights law form the basis for effective preventive and counter-terrorism measures. “We have to end impunity and make sure that terrorists and their supporters are held accountable for incitement by having in place the appropriate legislative provisions to bring perpetrators to justice,” he said.Today’s meeting coincides with the closing of the General Assembly’s High-Level meeting on the outcomes of the World Summit on the Information Society, and as the Security Council has convened a meeting of finance ministers from among its member States on ways to disrupt terrorist financing. read more

University marks anniversary of Montreal Massacre

Thursday was the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women, marking the 23rd anniversary of the Montreal Massacre. When Wendee Kubik first began teaching 16 years ago, almost everyone in her women’s studies classes knew about the Montreal Massacre.Now, 23 years after 14 women were targeted and murdered at Montreal’s L’Ecole Polytechnique on Dec. 6, 1989, fewer hands go up when Kubik asks her students if they know about the mass murder.“It could be about 10 have heard about it,” said Kubik, associate professor in Brock’s Centre for Women’s and Gender Studies. “Maybe they don’t know a lot about it, but they’ve heard about it.”That’s Kubik’s cue to fill in any blanks about an event that was pivotal in highlighting how much of an issue sexism violence against women really was – and still is – in Canadian society. It’s an event that also led to the creation of the Centre for Women’s and Gender Studies at Brock.Wendee KubikThursday, Kubik and others gathered to remember the victims of the Montreal Massacre at a candlelight vigil at the University and mark the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.Polytechnique, a film about the murders, was shown and a discussion was held afterward.Kubik also spoke about the 600 aboriginal women in Canada who have gone missing or been murdered in the past 20 years. In August 2011, the province of Manitoba, RCMP and Winnipeg Police launched the Manitoba Integrated Task Force for Missing and Murdered Women to investigate.Despite fewer of her students knowing or remembering the Polytechnique tragedy, it still resonates with them, Kubik said.“The room gets so quiet (when I talk to them about it),” she said. “You can almost hear a pin drop. A lot of women can relate because that’s them. They’re in university now and they say ‘She was as old as I was.’”Still, in the years since, Kubik has seen progress made to end violence against women.One telltale sign: “You’ll probably see a man wearing a white ribbon today,” she said.It’s a symbol that the person wearing it is not only against violence against women but is committed to speaking out against it, too.“We see more and more men challenging things that are misogynist today. We’ve got more feminist men today,” Kubik said.And she credits the National Day of Remembrance with playing a role, no matter how many years pass since the tragedy that forced its inception.“It’s just a time to stop, to think and reflect, and see how far we’ve come and where do we need to go,” Kubik said. read more

Unable to get hold of them, Rodrigo’s mother pleaded for help on social media to find her child.His grandmother had rushed from Lisbon to try to find him, but the bodies of Rodrigo and his uncle were found beside a car, caught by the flames as they tried to flee.Water tank escape While several residents of the village of Pobrais were killed while trying to flee roadside flames, the Ferreira family survived by taking refuge in a small water tank a few metres from their door.Maria do Ceu, a 52-year-old housewife, her husband, a 68-year-old who was formerly in the merchant navy, and their two daughters aged in their 30s told AFP of their “indescribable” fear.“I knew we would be safe if we stayed in the water,” one of the daughters, a forest engineer, said. “We tried to convince our neighbours to stay, we begged them, but they still left” by car, towards the road where 11 of them were found dead.Refuge from the flames A 60-year-old widow’s home, the most modern in Nodeirinho, became a refuge from the raging fire destroying house after house in the village, the Expresso newspaper reported.Two panicked couples from Lisbon and three children, who had been caught in the flames as they returned from lunch with friends, knocked on Adelaide Silva’s door, pleading for shelter.

One of the women who had already taken refuge in the house, a nurse, wrapped her in wet towels until she was later taken to hospital.Livelihood destroyed Virgilio Godinho and his wife Isabel saw their small farm, together with their orchard, olive grove, vegetable garden and pick-up truck go up in flames in the village of Vilas de Pedro.The couple and their 18-year-old daughter escaped because they were attending a wedding in another village.Isabel Godinho, 63, tearfully told AFP: “We lost everything, I do not how we will eat, I’m going crazy.”Virgilio, an unemployed mechanic, lost his entire tool collection.“It was fortunate we were not there because I would have tried to save our possessions and then the worst could have happened,” he said.- © AFP 2017Read: Portugal in mourning as firefighters continue to battle deadly wildfireRead: Death toll from raging Portuguese forest fire rises to at least 62 23,075 Views Tuesday 20 Jun 2017, 7:51 AM 9 Comments Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Short URL Jun 20th 2017, 7:51 AM last_img read more

Shearer baffled by Rooneys England return

England should not have to honour you.“Given Wayne retired from international football 15 months ago, if the FA really wanted to give him a send-off, why could they not invite him to the game as a guest?Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“That would make more sense than saying: ‘Thanks for playing for England, Wayne, here’s another game for you.’“It is great that the FA want to pay tribute to his career and raise funds for his charity. But they should not turn an international match into a testimonial.”Former England striker Shearer scored 30 goals in 63 appearances at international level between 1992 to 2000.After the game against the US, England will then host Croatia three days at Wembley for a UEFA Nations League clash.pic.twitter.com/v5tWGOQMp9— England (@England) November 4, 2018last_img read more
