Looking forward to Volcker report Annan reaffirms resolve to improve UN management

“We will study [the report] and implement its recommendations,” Mr. Annan told reporters at UN Headquarters, referring to the forthcoming report by the Independent Inquiry Committee (IIC). “We ourselves are taking measures to strengthen some of our management practices and we will be making some announcements and taking some concrete action very soon.”The Secretary-General added that during the last General Assembly session he had asked the Assembly to review the mandate of the UN’s own watchdog, the Office for Internal Oversight Services (OIOS), 10 years after its establishment to see how it can be strengthened and give it appropriate authority to do its work.The report by the three-member independent panel, which is headed by former US Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker, is scheduled to be released on Thursday. Mr. Volcker was appointed by Mr. Annan in April 2004 to conduct an inquiry into allegations of impropriety in the administration and management of the Oil-for-Food programme, which permitted the use of proceeds from oil sales to purchase humanitarian goods. read more

TSX rises amid solid Canadian Pacific earnings profit taking takes RIM lower

by Malcolm Morrison, The Canadian Press Posted Jan 29, 2013 4:34 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TSX rises amid solid Canadian Pacific earnings; profit taking takes RIM lower TORONTO – The Toronto stock market closed slightly higher Tuesday thanks to a positive earnings report from Canadian Pacific Railway (TSX:CP) and rising gold stocks.But the TSX was held back by Research In Motion Ltd. (TSX:RIM), which lost ground for a second day ahead of the unveiling of its new BlackBerry 10 products.The S&P/TSX composite index gained 14.64 points to 12,830.56 while the TSX Venture Exchange climbed 14.04 points to 1,231.92.The Canadian dollar found some equilibrium after a string of losses, rising 0.41 of a cent to 99.76 cents US.The dollar had tumbled about 1.4 cents US since the Bank of Canada indicated last Wednesday that it will be slower to raise interest rates than had been expected because of economic weakness. Higher rates tend to attract investors and push up the currency.U.S. indexes were mixed amid data showing improving house prices along with a decline in consumer confidence during January with the Dow industrials ahead 72.49 points to 13,954.42.The Nasdaq was 0.64 of a point lower to 3,153.66 while the S&P 500 edged up 7.66 points to 1,507.84.Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd. (TSX:CP) says its profit was cut to $15 million or eight cents per share in the fourth quarter amid a number of restructuring expenses. On an adjusted basis, however, CP’s earning rose by 17 cents from a year earlier to $1.28 per share, in line with analyst estimates. Its shares climbed $3.45 to $116.22, a far cry from its 52-week low of $70.61, prior to the shakeup forced on the railway by Bill Ackman, the head of hedge fund Pershing Square, which is the single biggest CP shareholder.“When you have an investor activist come in and basically force out the CEO — which was the first step — and bring in changes of this magnitude, you’re not going to see the end results of it overnight,” said Gareth Watson, vice-president investment management and research at Richardson GMP Ltd.“So it is going to take time but, if they start delivering as the street expects them to, I think that sends a signal they’re on the right track and I think that’s what the market is probably rewarding them for.”Investors continued to take profits from Research In Motion Ltd.’s (TSX:RIM) spectacular runup this month ahead of the unveiling of its BlackBerry 10 lineup Wednesday in New York. RIM stock was off the worst levels of the session, closing down 56 cents or 3.44 per cent to $15.71 on top of a 7.6 per cent slide Monday. As of Friday, RIM stock had soared 50 per cent during January.The smartphones are widely seen as a make-or-break product for the Waterloo, Ont., company.“It needs to be judged on the ability of this device to attract back subscribers that left RIM for other handheld devices,” said Watson.“Will they come back in droves? I’m not so convinced. I hope they prove me wrong. At this stage, to proclaim victory before the game has even started I think is a bit silly and I think that’s why you have seen some pullback here in the stock.”Ford Motor Co. was a weight on the Dow, even as the automaker earned $1.6 billion in the fourth quarter or 31 cents per share, which beat analysts’ forecast of 25 cents per share. But its shares fell 64 cents or 4.64 per cent to US$13.14 because of a worse than expected outlook for sales in Europe, where many countries are in recession.Drugmaker Pfizer was the biggest gainer on the Dow, rising 86 cents to $27.70 after the company said its fourth-quarter profit more than quadrupled because of a $4.8-billion gain from selling its nutrition business, despite competition from generic drugs hurting sales.On the economic front, the widely watched Case-Shiller Index showed U.S. house prices rose by a seasonally adjusted 0.63 per cent in November, slightly below expectations for a 0.7 per cent gain. That translated into an annual rate of 5.52 per cent which was in line with expectations and the highest since 2006.Meanwhile, the Conference Board in the U.S. reported that its consumer confidence index for January came in at 58.6, down from 66.7 in December.The TSX gold sector advanced about one per cent while February gold on the New York Mercantile Exchange gained $7.90 to US$1,660.80 an ounce. Goldcorp Inc. (TSX:G) improved by 60 cents to C$36.11 while Kinross Gold Corp. (TSX:K) rose 11 cents to $8.47.The telecom sector was supportive, up 0.54 per cent as Telus Corp. (TSX:T) climbed 83 cents to $66.52 while BCE Inc. (TSX:BCE) climbed 29 cents to $44.86.The energy sector was slightly higher as the March crude contract added $1.13 to US$97.57 a barrel. Imperial Oil (TSX:IMO) declined 79 cents to $44.06 and Canadian Natural Resources (TSX:CNQ) ran up 37 cents to $31.30.The base metals sector was slightly lower with March copper on the Nymex up three cents at US$3.69 a pound. Capstone Mining (TSX:CS) gained four cents to C$2.51 while Rio Alto Mining (TSX:RIO) was up nine cents to $5.38.Elsewhere on the earnings front, shares in Metro Inc. (TSX:MRU.A) slipped a dime to $64.02 as the grocer increased its quarterly dividend to 25 cents from 21.5 cents. The company also reported an 11 per cent increase in net earnings from continuing operations for its fiscal first quarter to $115 million, or $1.16 per diluted share. That beat estimates by a penny per share. Sales revenue was up 2.7 per cent to $2.7 billion in the quarter, slightly below forecasts.North American markets are ending January trading on a positive note thanks to a better than expected U.S. earnings season and relief that U.S. politicians managed to avoid pushing the economy over the so-called fiscal cliff and reached a temporary agreement on raising the debt ceiling.The TSX is up just over three per cent for the month. The Dow industrials have charged ahead to a series of fresh five year highs and are up more than six per cent. read more

Line drawn at Queens Belfast as Blurred Lines is banned

first_imgYesNoI don’t knowVoteRead: Lily Allen lays into Robin Thicke and the music industry in new video>Read: Feminist parody of Blurred Lines taken off YouTube…> Poll Results: Yes (685) No (2612)center_img A LINE HAS been drawn at Queens University Belfast with the banning of a hugely popular – and massively controversial – pop song.Blurred Lines, by Robin Thicke, will no longer be allowed to be played throughout the Students Union at Queens, including all bar/club venues, Queen’s Radio, cafés, Clubs and Societies events, external events and within commercial outlets.The ban even extends to when the song is played on external radio stations, with an order that the station must be “changed immediately”.The motion was put forward by Student Officer Equality and Diversity, Caoimhe McNeill. She said during the most recent student council meeting that over 20 Students’ Unions have removed this song from their playlists.She described banning Blurred Lines as “a step in a right direction to make sure SU members feel safe on campus”.One person who spoke against the motion was Eoin Deeney, who said that he thought the premise was flawed and that it is “tantamount to censorship”. He also pointed out that there are “millions of other songs” with such connotations.The lyrics to the song were discussed by the Students’ Union council members. Some said that they thought publicising banning the song would make people think about Robin Thicke’s “message”. McNeill said the issue is not one of censorship.The motion went to a vote and was passed. The Belfast Telegraph notes that 26 were in favour of the motion, while 22 student council members were against.Thicke has been accused of promoting rape culture through the lyrics of the track, but he has denied suggestions that Blurred Lines is offensive or misogynistic.Do you think that Blurred Lines should be banned from students’ unions?

OnLive to launch streaming web access this summer

first_imgOnLive’s slick game and video streaming service is certainly impressive. The behind-the-scenes magic performed by its server farm allows OnLive users to play their favorite PC and console games on devices like the iPad or Motorola Xoom, and that’s an undeniably cool trick.Now the company has made it clear that it’s not going to stop at gaming. Next up: web browsing.OnLive plans to take on the likes of Google Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer with a cloud-powered web browser that harnesses the power of its servers to pre-render streaming web content. That will include re-encoding things like Flash video so it can be played on the iPad or iPhone. And because OnLive’s massive computing cluster is taking care of page processing, it’s theoretically capable of much faster rendering speeds than most of the desktops, laptops, and mobile devices people are using today.Right now, the company is still figuring out how far to take things. Will all active content eventually be greenlighted? Possibly, but for now the goal is to deliver enough functionality to users that the majority of sites they’ll want to visit are fully working.Does that mean you’ll be able to play to your favorite Kongregate games in its browser? No, probably not — not in the beginning, at least. It should mean that most of the embedded audio and video you encounter online will be accessible, whether it’s Quicktime, Windows Media, or Flash-based.CEO Steve Perlman also states that the company is undecided about whether to charge for the OnLive browser, saying instead that the plan is to let people “run wild” at first and see what data usage looks like before making a decision.While OnLive talks about this service being revolutionary and “insane,” it seems an awful lot like a combination of the ideas that power two existing mobile browsers: Opera Mini (the world’s most popular mobile browser) and Skyfire. Skyfire, of course, is famous for being the first browser that delivered Flash video to iOS devices. Opera Mini reduces page load times and data transfer by rendering and compressing web content on its own servers and then pushing the finished product to users.More at OnLive Fanslast_img read more


first_img MovieBob Reviews: ‘Shadow’MovieBob Reviews: ‘The Curse of La Llorona’ Stay on target Well, then. Here’s a movie that’s not really all that bad but I can’t for the life of me think of any reason anyone would actually want to watch it.Nocturnal Animals is well acted, it looks handsome, it has solid set design and cinematography and it’s filled with great actors (and also Armie Hammer), but there’s not really much of a point to it despite being about as pretentious as a major release gets these days. Nobody is really playing that far outside their general wheelhouse, there aren’t any big setpiece moments you just have to rush out and see, and when the show-offy multi-track narrative at long last gets where it’s going you get your answers – but you also get a big imposing pile of “That was fucking IT!?”In any case: The technical main character is Amy Adams as a snobby upscale Los Angeles ice-queen type whose art gallery business is about to go bust along with her effectively loveless marriage. Left alone for a weekend while her similarly inhuman husband (Hammer, essentially reprising his “Winklevii” characterization from The Social Network) heads off “on business;” she finds herself the recipient of a package from Jake Gyllenhaal as her estranged first husband containing the manuscript of a soon-to-be-published novel that he’s dedicated to her and that he’d like her to read.And read it she does – that’s pretty much her role in the movie: She reads it in bed, she reads it on the couch, sometimes she takes a break… and then goes back to reading. By now all of the “I’d pay to watch Amy Adams read ____” jokes have been made, but suffice it to say that in practice it’s… not exactly a riveting spectacle, let’s it that way. She does manage to get a paper cut from opening the package because that’s about the level of cheesy on-the-nose symbolism we’re dealing with here.In any case: While she’s reading we get to see the story within the book dramatized for us by a different set of actors, save for Gyllenhaal who portrays his author character’s own obvious self-insert protagonist because isn’t that clever? Said story is a lurid, ultra-grim crime-thriller about a milquetoast guy who goes looking for revenge after he and his family are savagely assaulted by a vicious gang of redneck carjackers while driving through the middle of nowhere; eventually teaming up Michael Shannon as an old-school hardass detective to take the law into their own hands. The “joke,” you see, is that where the real-world part of the story is artsy and cold and sterile, the fictional part is bloody, sweaty, gritty and visceral – again: Clever.Anyway, once this has gone on for awhile, we start to get glimpses of a third story track when the super-dark manuscript starts to disturb her so much that she begins having sad flashbacks to how their relationship began and eventually fell apart in the first place – which, of course, “rhymes” with events of the book in arch yet vague and not terribly satisfactory ways: We “get” where the conceit is going pretty much right away i.e. we’ll eventually get some kind of denouement and go “Oh that’s why he was compelled to write such a dark book!” But the ultimate reveal (which, if you’ve seen more than one “rich people reflect on their regrets” movie like this, you’ll see coming a mile out) lands more as a case of “Oh.. okay, then;” while the big present-day finish it turns out we’ve been building to with all this enigmatic innuendo and narrative gamesmanship is a resounding… well, like I said before: “That was fucking IT!?” Sure, we get the point – it’s just not very worth getting when all’s said and done.It’s not that Nocturnal Animals is bad, there’s just not much to recommend about it. Director Tom Ford started out as an internationally renowned fashion designer, and as you’d expect he delivers an impeccably handsome-looking feature that has about as much recognizable humanity in it as the vaguely predatory glassy stare of your average runway model – which is to say not very much, perhaps deliberately so. This cold-fish technician approach worked out fine for his debut feature, A Single Man, as it was a long form study of repression and self-denial; but this meant to be a depiction of psychological violence being inflicted by way of literary allusion, and it just doesn’t have the bite it’s clearly meant to.The best parts here are the “fake story” from the book, and that’s mainly because you’ve got Michael Shannon on hand to radiate charisma and carry everybody else through… and even then, at times, you get the sense that these sequences are intended in part as a send-up of grief-porn pulp page-turners rather than their perceived naturalism. In the end, it’s simply too glum to be enjoyable and too thin to be worth the trouble.last_img read more

Without Google people behind bars pen their questions to librarians

first_img 4 This library puts tech in the hands of its patrons 2:18 Internet Share your voice Comments Tetra Images/Getty Images Rachel Kinnon and Jeanie Austin, librarians at the San Francisco Public Library, receive about 60 questions a week from a dedicated group of fans: prison inmates. The inquiries, usually handwritten and sent by post, range from requests for information about transitioning to life outside of prison to explanations of technologies that may not have existed before a prisoner was put away, like 5G and bitcoin. Song lyrics are a frequent ask. Tech infiltrates nearly every aspect of our lives, but remains virtually nonexistent in jails and prisons. Inmates typically don’t have access to computers or cellphones. Sometimes they can send and receive electronic messaging, a stripped-down form of email. But it’s expensive and limited by character counts. digital-libraries-8777-5The Next Chapter is a multipart series that examines the changing role of libraries in a connected world.  James Martin/CNET That’s why Kinnon and Austin are so important to inmates. They serve as human go-betweens for prisoners and information that’s often readily available online. Prisoners express “how they were really disconnected before they had this link to the world,” said Kinnon, who manages the SFPL’s Jail and Reentry Services program. “There’s such a desperate need for information.” Unlike Google, which generally returns results in less than a second, the process of answering prisoner questions can take weeks. Kinnon and Austin scan the letters they read and email them to other librarians, who research the answers. Researchers often do a quick Google search for the answer or access dedicated databases such as ProQuest, EBSCO and Gale. When the responses come back, the pair review them, print them out and mail them back. Librarians: the original search enginesThe SFPL, which is celebrating National Library Week along with other US institutions, isn’t the only library that serves as a de facto Google for inmates. In fact, its letter-writing service, called Reference by Mail, is modeled after a similar program at the New York Public Library. As part of an agreement, the two libraries essentially split the country, with the NYPL taking letters from prisoners in the eastern half of the country and the SFPL taking letters from the western half. A third library, the Harris County Public Library in Houston, takes letters from prisoners in Texas. Other libraries also take questions from prisoners.Reference by MailSome of the letters the San Francisco Public Library receives from inmates.  Rachel Kinnon There are limits to what they can provide. For example, librarians can’t offer legal advice, adult entertainment or information related to violence. Inmates are allowed to write up to two letters a month to the SFPL. All responses include a source note explaining why a particular resource was chosen, as well as a reference list. Responses can run as many as 20 pages. Sometimes librarians will write their own explanations. Other times, they’ll send an article addressing the topic an inmate is interested in. “Sometimes we get asked astrophysics questions, and I’m just like, ‘Screenshots all the way,'” Austin says with a laugh. Not all the questions revolve around serious topics. One person wrote to the NYPL asking about the history of the hot dog, while another requested pictures of every My Little Pony. Someone once asked for love spells, particularly ones that would work through mail. The fact that prisoners use their limited supply of stamps and envelopes to write to the library is telling of how important the resource is to them, Kinnon says. “We’ve had people say explicitly, ‘I wouldn’t get any mail if it weren’t for you,'” she says.

first_img Thursday, August 16, 2018 Share VAUGHAN, ON — Usually when you hear about the world’s longest, fastest, tallest something-or-other, cities like Dubai or New York usually come to mind. But this time around, Canada is getting its due with its new World Record-holding roller coaster.Yukon Striker will be the star of the show at Canada’s Wonderland in Vaughan, Ont., when it opens in summer 2019.

Jamaica steps up efforts to combat dengue fever

first_img 4 must play golf courses in Arizona Comments   Share   Top Stories 5 treatments for adult scoliosis Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Associated PressKINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) – Jamaica is stepping up mosquito eradication across the island and urging school children to stamp out breeding grounds to combat an epidemic of dengue fever, the Caribbean country’s health minister said Thursday.Health Minister Fenton Ferguson told reporters there have been five suspected deaths from the mosquito-borne virus in Jamaica so far this year. Only one has been confirmed with an autopsy. Sponsored Stories Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project There have been more than 1,200 suspected cases as of Sept. 29, compared to 887 during the same period last year. About half the cases have occurred in the southern capital of Kingston. However, this year’s cases are far less than in 2010, an outbreak year.Officials have dispatched fumigation trucks to spray roughly 450 neighborhoods and teams are clearing storm drains that are clogged with debris. Thousands of premises have been inspected, Fenton said.“We have been taking the necessary steps to reduce the mosquito population and limit the impact of the epidemic across the island,” he said at the ministry’s offices.But since fumigation alone can’t stop the insects, authorities have urged islanders to do their part in containing the population, such as making sure Aedes aegypti mosquitoes are not breeding in water standing in garbage and old tires.The Jamaican government is trying to enlist energetic youngsters in the campaign by distributing 400,000 brochures in schools that show how mosquito larvae flourish in stagnant water.Similar battles are being fought in other parts of the region, including the Dominican Republic and the U.S. island of Puerto Rico, where earlier this week the health department declared an epidemic after nearly 5,000 cases and at least six deaths were reported for 2012. Dengue victims suffer symptoms like headaches, cramps and severe joint and muscle pain. Most recover after a week, but a severe hemorrhagic form can be fatal. There is no vaccination or cure for dengue, which is also known as “break-bone fever” because of the pain it causes.Fenton warned that Jamaica’s problem could worsen as the rainy season advances. Dengue cases usually flare up from August through December.“We expect that in the coming weeks there may be even more adult mosquitoes given the recent rains,” Fenton said.The tropical virus was once thought to have been nearly eliminated from the region, but it has steadily gained strength in Latin America and the Caribbean since the early 1980s.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

Carson Palmer has been in Sam Bradfords seat deb

first_imgCarson Palmer has been in Sam Bradford’s seat, debuting on a new team and playing under a first-year coaching staff.The last time Palmer did it, Bradford was there, playing for the St. Louis Rams in September of 2013 and hosting an Arizona Cardinals team debuting Palmer at quarterback and Bruce Arians as head coach. That game ended as a 27-24 Arizona loss despite Palmer throwing for 327 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Five years later, Bradford’s first game as Palmer’s replacement for the Cardinals also ended in defeat.Arizona put up less of a fight compared to the debut of their last head coach, falling 24-6 to the Washington Redskins on Sunday as Bradford completed 20-of-34 passes for just 153 yards and an interception.Palmer, enjoying his retirement, was watching his successor and told Doug & Wolf on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station that he empathizes with his former team.Related LinksArizona Cardinals’ first impression against Redskins was a debacleFormer Cardinal Carson Palmer to be featured in ‘A Football Life’Booed in opener, Cardinals focus on improvement after loss to RedskinsPeterson, Redskins paint a portrait of what the Cardinals want to be“Let me start off by saying, give them some time. This is Week 1,” Palmer said Monday. “As you heard Coach Wilks say it, this is a reload — a reload doesn’t happen in Week 1, it doesn’t happen overnight. You look at this group and there’s great players on this team.”Cardinals players didn’t express panic, nor concern after their season-opening loss.Growing familiar with one another, however, wasn’t an excuse in the locker room. They expected more of themselves. But Palmer believes cohesion will take repetition and live game action to develop.Bradford, who signed as a free agent this offseaosn, played sparingly in the preseason and could have more rust to knock off after he appeared in just two games last year before a knee injury ended his 2017 with the Minnesota Vikings. His offensive line includes a rookie center, two new players on the right side, and two returnees on the left side who each played less than half of last season. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “This offensive line, all five of these guys are just now playing with each other,” Palmer said. “And it’s nice to get some reps and some repetition with each other during camp and during practice, but it’s the games where you really start to get a comfort level of playing with each other.“It’s not college football. In college football, you lose one game, your season’s kind of over if you’re trying to win a national championship,” Palmer added. “There’s so much more football to be played.” Top Stories center_img Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer drops back to pass during the second quarter of an NFL football game against the St. Louis Rams Sunday, Sept. 8, 2013, in St. Louis.

The CBC/Netflix TV series “Anne” has a leading 13 nominations heading into this year’s Canadian Screen Awards. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Christopher Katsarov ‘Anne’ has leading 13 Canadian Screen Award nominationscenter_img TORONTO – This year’s Canadian Screen Awards will boast a “solid slate” of work from women, organizers said Tuesday as they unveiled the nominees and addressed how the #MeToo and Time’s Up female empowerment movements might factor into the upcoming show.CBC/Netflix’s female-led “Anne,” featuring the plucky young heroine from Lucy Maud Montgomery’s classic novel, nabbed a leading 13 nominations. They include best drama series for creators Moira Walley-Beckett and Miranda de Pencier, and best actress for star Amybeth McNulty.Meanwhile, two of the leading film nominees are female-led: “Ava” by Sadaf Foroughi, and “Never Steady, Never Still” by Kathleen Hepburn. They each have eight nominations, tied with “Hochelaga, Land of Souls” by Francois Girard, which was Canada’s pick for the best foreign-language film category at this year’s Oscars but ultimately didn’t make the short list.“I think the best way to recognize the future that we’re trying to create for women in our industry is to recognize their work, and we have a solid slate of work from women directors, writers, actors up for nominations this year, which I’m really excited about,” said Beth Janson, CEO of the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television.“In our best writing category for (TV) drama, there’s a woman in every nomination — four of them are women-only and one of them is a female-male team.”As the industry grapples with sexual misconduct allegations, Janson said the academy is also working on creating its own code of conduct heading into the awards gala, which will be broadcast on CBC-TV on March 11 from the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts in Toronto.“We are first going to our members to get their input on what they think should be in the code of conduct,” Janson said. “I think that it’s really important, in solving this issue, is to solve it from the people on the frontlines who are dealing with this on a daily basis rather than only from the legal experts who are seeing it with a bird’s-eye view.“We’re developing a survey that’s going to go to our members … on Monday, actually, and then we hope to have a code of conduct in place to reveal to our membership during Canadian Screen Week.”Asked whether the show might have a female host, academy chair Martin Katz would only say: “We’ve had female hosts in the past and I think we’re going to be very excited when we announce the host in the next few weeks.”Other leading television nominees include CTV’s crime drama “Cardinal” and CBC’s family comedy “Kim’s Convenience,” which have 12 nominations apiece.CBC’s adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s novel “Alias Grace” and its riches-to-rags comedy “Schitt’s Creek” have 11 nods each, while the CraveTV hoser comedy “Letterkenny” and Global’s assisted-death drama “Mary Kills People” both have nine.The nominees for best picture are: “Ava,” “The Breadwinner,” “It’s the Heart That Dies Last,” “The Little Girl Who Was Too Fond of Matches,” “Maudie,” “Never Steady, Never Still” and “The Ravenous.”“Maudie” by Aisling Walsh and “The Little Girl Who Was Too Fond of Matches” by Simon Lavoie and Mathieu Denis are among the other leading film nominees with seven nods apiece.Actress Emma Hunter, who’s nominated for her work on the TV series “Mr. D” and “The Beaverton,” said she’s “hoping for a lot more female wins” this year.“There’s a lot of women nominated and I know we’re trying to do better as a nation. I just hope there’s a lot of attention around it (at the show),” she said.“I think we can talk about it, I think everybody’s talking about it and I think as a country we have a responsibility to talk about it. So I hope it’s highlighted, at the very least, and I think it will be.”Note to readers: This is a corrected story. A previous version stated “Mary Kills People” airs on CTV.last_img read more

D. has design experience with higher education The firm redesigned the University of South Dakota logo in 2011 and the Augustana University logo in 2008Senior Vice President of Design Dan Edmonds said athletic logos are different because people are generally very passionate about themHis firm does an audit of area teams as well as the ones the school would compete against to make sure any new logo design wouldn’t be duplicative Anything after that would be an extended conversation among designers and the school to figure out definite dislikes or likes“UND has a really unique situation in that they’re sort of starting over with a brand new name which gives them all sorts of leeway to invent a mark” Edmonds saidDan Haan another executive with the firm said the idea is to get something that has group appeal while acknowledging a new logo isn’t going to please everyone“You need the administrators chancellor and president to have buy-in” Edmonds said “You have to have enough people behind it to deflect any resistance” Design on a dollarUND representatives have told the Herald one group of people will select a design firm through the request-for-proposals process while another will work with those designers to help them create the logo UND spokesman Johnson said in November that the University and Public Relations Department and other divisions that would typically be associated with the nickname such as athletics had been asked by UND President Robert Kelley to help decide the size and makeup of those two committees UND legal counsel has already filed a federal trademark application for the Fighting Hawks name and will file to protect the logo once one is createdWhen the new nickname was announced UND Vice President for University and Public Affairs Susan Walton said no dollar figure had been tied to logo development but the university would spend wisely Johnson later told the Herald there had not been conversations about capping spending because they wanted to “do it right” As of late November $276433 had been spent on picking the Fighting Hawks nickname Huesman said he saw ethical issues with having a logo design contest because even if the university paid a designer there was no way to tell how much money the logo would eventually make the universityUND sells all of its marks for merchandise and according to Herald archives the school has made about $32 million since 2006“There are legal ramifications and moral ones too because of the money being exchanged” Huesman said “Every T-shirt sweatshirt and can koozie — they’re going to make a nickel on that and how come the person who designed that isn’t making any money"But more than a decade ago Brien sold the rights to his Fighting Sioux logo and Caufield said while he would want to be paid
