Messed me up 60s Scoop survivors meet for Alberta apology consultations

first_imgThe Canadian PressEDMONTON – Beatrix Massee is a Cree woman from Alberta but she speaks with a slight Tennessee twang – a legacy of the foster homes she grew up in after being taken from her mother by government authorities in the ’60s Scoop.“I was placed in a home that was full of abuse, moved around from home to home to home,” Massee, 45, recalled Thursday.“Wouldn’t it have been better if I’d been with my family?”Massee was one of dozens of Scoop survivors who gathered at an Indigenous school in Edmonton for a sixth and final meeting with provincial officials. Alberta has been gathering input to craft a meaningful “sorry” for the thousands of children who were taken from their parents and culture and adopted into non-Indigenous homes.“We’re estimating it could be anywhere from 20,000 to 25,000 people in Alberta,” said Adam North Peigan of the Sixties Scoop Indigenous Society. “I’ve been overwhelmed with the amount of survivors that have come out.”Massee was two when she was taken from her mother, who she said was drinking and living in poverty. Her sister was taken at birth.“I had to protect her and take care of her. I didn’t have a childhood, didn’t get to learn anything, because it was all about survival,” she said. “Nobody wanted us and it just messed me up.”The Scoop happened to Indigenous families across Canada between 1951 and 1991. Children were taken from their homes and communities and placed as far away as New Zealand.Manitoba was the first province to deliver an apology in 2015. Former Saskatchewan premier Brad Wall promised one, but resigned before it was fulfilled.In October, the federal government announced it had reached a $750-million settlement with about 20,000 people. The agreement, which is yet to be finalized, would see survivors each receive between $25,000 and $50,000.North Peigan said any apology from Alberta will have to include action.“Resources need to be put on the table to allow survivors to come together and be able to begin the healing process. We’re looking for a long-term commitment from the government, both federally and provincially.”Children’s Services Minister Danielle Larivee said there’s no timeline for a statement and plan.She says Alberta has reduced the number of Indigenous children in government care, although they still make up two-thirds of caseloads despite being only 10 per cent of children in the province.Officials are finalizing recommendations from a 2016 report on how to improve care for those kids.“We haven’t been waiting (for those recommendations),” Larivee said. “We’ve been doing tremendous work to make sure we’re developing the relationships and creating the partnerships to make sure we can move forward.”Massee said it’s been a tough road, with sad detours into drugs and alcohol and prostitution. A reunion with her birth family didn’t go so well. There was a suicide attempt.But she’s doing all right. Coming home to Alberta was a big part of it.“It was the ancestors who brought me back here. I started connecting with my culture and my identity and I started healing.”She’s been sober for three years. She’s got a job. She’s reconnected with her daughter, who’s about to deliver a grandson.Her sister is married and still lives in the United States.“I’m OK,” she said, dabbing away tears.“I wouldn’t be where I’m at right now if it wasn’t for my culture and my identity and my people. They’re the only ones in my whole life that showed me that they loved me.”last_img read more


Saudi Aramco in parleys with Reliance for stake in refinerypetchem complex

first_imgNew Delhi: Saudi Aramco, the world’s largest oil exporter, is in talks to buy stake in Reliance Industries’ oil refineries and petrochemical complex, sources privy to the development said. Aramco opened talks with Reliance as $44-billion mega refinery-cum-petrochemical complex, where it was taking a 50 per cent stake along with UAE’s ADNOC, got delayed after ruling BJP-government scrapped plans to acquiring land for the project in coastal Maharashtra. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalThe sources said talks have been going on for few months now but there is nothing concrete that has materialised just as yet. Reports suggested Aramco may take 25 per cent stake for $10-15 billion but sources discounted such a valuation saying market capitalisation of Reliance at Tuesday’s closing price on BSE was over Rs 8.5 lakh crore, at least half of which or Rs 4.25 lakh crore (about $60 billion) would be coming from refinery and petrochemical business. A 25 per cent stake would translate into $15 billion without even considering any premium of giving a firm a foothold into a well-established business in the world’s third largest energy consuming nation, they said.last_img read more

Briefing Security Council senior officials urge UN systemwide approach to early warning

Unanimously adopting a resolution ahead of a day-long meeting on conflict prevention, the Council expressed its determination to enhance the effectiveness of the United Nations “in preventing and ending armed conflicts, their escalation, spread when they occur, and their resurgence once they end,” and underlined the overriding moral, political and humanitarian imperatives as well as the economic advantages of taking such a preventive approach.Emphasizing that the United Nations, including the Security Council, “should heed early warning indications of potential conflict” and ensure prompt and effective action to prevent, contain or end them, the Council in its resolution also affirmed that a comprehensive conflict prevention strategy should include, among others, early warning, preventive diplomacy, mediation, preventive deployment, peacekeeping, and practical disarmament.Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who briefed the Council alongside UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay, said: “There is no more important challenge before us than improving our ability to reach a stronger and earlier consensus. It is time for a new era of collaboration, cooperation and action from the Security Council.”Mr. Ban said that though the UN had risen from the ashes of “the war to end all wars” and had, over the past 64 years, saved countless lives, “we cannot speak of positive trends when we look at Syria, Iraq, Gaza, South Sudan, the Central African Republic a Ukraine and elsewhere.”Those situations demonstrate not only the changing nature and complexity of contemporary conflict – repeated cycles of turmoil, exacerbating factors such as extreme poverty, weak institutions or terrorism – but also pose a major challenge to the Organization’s prevention work.“Are our common tools fit for purpose? What must we do better? How can we anticipate what lies ahead?” the UN Chief asked, and added: “The Security Council, which bears the primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security, has a unique responsibility.”Hard-won experience has taught the international community a number of lessons about what works in prevention, he said, highlighting five relevant points: being present early, including mobilizing effective, unified diplomatic action to diffuse tensions; honing skills in prevention and mediation; building partnerships and coalitions, including regional-level peace and security initiatives; learning from collective mistakes; and empowering the UN Secretary-General to speak on “behalf of a common voice”, drawing on the leverage of the UN Charter.“Even modest United Nations actions can have an important impact when we have the Security Council’s united support – speaking with one voice – for early engagement,” said the Secretary-General, underscoring: “There are millions of people around the world hoping for and counting on decisive joint action by the one and only global body entrusted with the obligation to maintain international peace and security.”Providing the Council with a prescription of her own, Ms. Pillay, in her final address before ending her term as UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, said that strengthening civil society actors; increasing participation by women in decision-making and dialogue; and addressing institutional and individual accountability for past violations of human rights, are vital good practises that address both proximate triggers of conflict and root causes.“And yet, the conflict in Syria is metastasizing outwards in an uncontrollable process whose eventual limits we cannot predict,” she said, adding that other complex and potentially highly eruptive conflicts are underway hammer home the full cost of the international community’s failure to prevent conflict.“They combine massive bloodshed and devastation of infrastructure with acutely destabilising transnational phenomena, including terrorism, the proliferation of prohibited weaponry, organised crime, and spoliation of natural resources.”But none of those crises erupted without warning. They built up over years – and sometimes decades – of human rights grievances: deficient or corrupt governance and judicial institutions; discrimination and exclusion; inequities in development; exploitation and denial of economic and social rights; and repression of civil society and public freedoms.Ms. Pillay said early detection systems, such as the 51 experts of the UN Human Rights Council, and systematic scrutiny by UN treaty monitoring bodies, repeatedly alerted us to these shortfalls. “So, although the specifics of each crisis could not necessarily be predicted, many of the human rights violations that were at their core were known. They could have been addressed.”That was the duty of the relevant states, but when Governments are unable or unwilling to protect their people, it is the responsibility of the international community – and singularly the Security Council – to intervene and deploy a range of measures at its disposal to diffuse the triggers of conflict.And yet, while the Council’s interest in human rights increased markedly during her tenure, “there has not always been a firm and principled decision by Members to put an end to crises.” Indeed, Ms. Pillay continued, short-term geopolitical considerations and national interest, narrowly defined, had repeatedly taken precedence over intolerable human suffering and grave breaches of – and long-term threats to – international peace and security.“I firmly believe that greater responsiveness by this Council would have saved hundreds of thousands of lives,” she said, suggesting that use of the veto to stop actions intended to prevent or diffuse conflict is short-sighted in a century where growing challenges face humanity as a whole. “Collective interest – clearly defined by the UN Charter – is the national interest of every State.” With this in mind, she said the Security Council can take a number of innovative approaches to prevent threats to international peace and security, including further strengthening early warning, by asking for more regular and comprehensive human rights reporting by protection actors; and adopting a standing consensus on a menu of possible new responses to such alerts violations, such as rapid, flexible and resource-efficient human rights monitoring missions, limited in time and scope.“The laws of the UN are most needed when conflict looms, and this Council has the mandate to address crises before they escalate into threats to international peace and security,” concluded Ms. Pillay. read more


Ohio State mens volleyball duo Michael Henchy and Dustan Neary seeing the

Junior outside hitter Michael Henchy (6) hits the ball while junior middle blocker Dustan Neary (18) watches during a match against Saint Francis Feb. 9 at St. John Arena. OSU won, 3-0.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorSenior year of high school: staring out at the volleyball court and eating popsicles, Dustan Neary and Michael Henchy sat with their backs against the bleachers after defeating a high school rival for their first time in 10 years.“That was a pretty cool moment and I think it says something about our friendship off the court,” Henchy said of the time with Neary after the win.Now both juniors on the Ohio State men’s volleyball team, Neary and Henchy were previously high school volleyball teammates at Ventura High School in Ventura, Calif. The pair officially became teammates their sophomore year of high school when they both made the varsity team. Henchy said slowly but surely, he and Neary became good friends.“We didn’t really know each other freshmen and sophomore years. Our junior year we started to hang out a little bit and our senior year he started hanging out with me and my friend group a lot,” Henchy said. “It was more of an every weekend than an occasional kind of thing. Just spent a lot of time hanging out together … we could play pretty much any sport together.”Even though the two are good friends, they agreed they get a little competitive at practice, both in high school and today at OSU, where Neary is a middle blocker and Henchy is an outside hitter.“During high school our coach would have to split us up and put us on separate teams, it was always a battle,” Neary said with a laugh. “We would talk trash through the net all the time. But at the end of practice, we knew we were friends.”After high school, different recruiting processes led them to opposite ends of the country.Neary attended Moorpark Community College in California for two years before coming to OSU. Although Neary started playing volleyball in the fourth grade, he said he had more of a passion for basketball and that hurt him during recruitment.“I played basketball through high school and volleyball was kind of just something I did when I wasn’t playing basketball,” Neary said. “I didn’t start taking volleyball seriously until my junior year of high school … Everybody else had started (playing) earlier and I think they got noticed earlier, I was late getting into it. My talent was more raw, I guess.”Neary added he transferred to OSU so he could continue his volleyball career.Ventura High School boys volleyball coach Kim Adair said in a phone interview she loved Neary’s laughter on the court.“When he’d make a block or a kill, he would just turn around and have this grin on his face and then he’d get into the huddle and just laugh, just get joy from what he did,” Adair said.At 6 feet 6 inches tall, Henchy didn’t start playing volleyball until his freshman year of high school, and Adair said she enjoyed watching him develop a passion for the game.OSU men’s volleyball coach Pete Hanson said Henchy’s level-mindedness makes him a great asset on the court.“Michael brings a real level of steadiness, maturity … I think because we’re a pretty young group right now, that’s important for us,” Hanson said. “He keeps everybody pretty focused on the next play, regardless of what might have happened on the previous play.”Henchy said his decision to come to OSU was an easy one.“I took my official visit to Ohio State, went to a football game and got to meet the guys on the team and it was just a no-brainer from there,” Henchy said.Neary said after deciding to transfer, OSU was always an option because he had a good friend there.“In the recruiting process, I (sought) them (OSU) out first and out of the schools I showed myself to, Ohio State showed the biggest response,” Neary said. “Having my friend here made a difference.”Hanson said Neary’s work ethic was what made him appealing.“When we watched him at a junior college tournament, his team was playing in like eight or nine games in a couple hours and he seemed to play all the games,” Hanson said. “He kind of just kept going, and going, and going … and that is what kind of caught our eye — this guy just works hard all the time.”Henchy said he was excited to hear Neary was considering transferring to OSU to play.“When I found out he (Neary) was thinking of coming here, the wheels started to spin and I started putting in some good words with the coaches. I started telling him more about the campus,” Henchy said.In those two years, the two players kept in touch by emails and texts every now and then, and got to hang out on breaks from school.“After not seeing him that much for two years, I came here and it was pretty much exactly the same, exactly where we started off,” Neary said.On the OSU men’s volleyball team (7-6, 4-2), the two players have worked to become starters.“It’s funny lining up next to him in the front row and looking over and seeing the same thing the entire way through high school,” Neary said.Correction Feb. 25: An earlier version of this article’s headline had Dustan Neary’s first name spelled ‘Dustin,’ when in fact, it is Dustan. read more

This Terrifying Robot Is The Product of A Turkish Robotics Manufacturer

first_imgIf you’re like the average person, you probably find a good portion of robots creepy. When they start looking more human, as the Uncanny Valley theory suggests, people start being weirded out by them. That’s totally normal, especially when they look as wacky and weird as the new models from Akin Robotics in Turkey. These robots don’t really look humanoid at all, only vaguely, but still look totally weird and uncomfortably bizarre. And that’s about all they need to evoke that “please stay away from me feeling.”Just look at this thing, one of two new models Akin Robotics has introduced, which are called the ADA Mini seen at the top of this article and the GH5. These robots are super useful, as they can take restaurant orders, serve up drinks, walk, speak, get out of the way of obstacles, and a host of other things. They’d make perfect automatons for serving customers in malls and restaurants and other public places, and one of the models can even dance.There’s just one problem. They’re super terrifying. You can see one moving in the video below, which I kind of feel sorry for. It looks more forlorn than helpful as it struggles to give the woman a flyer, like it’s crying out for help or to be freed from its terrible shell. It has no sentience and it must scream. Do you see that too?<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>The robots are going to be mass produced so they can start helping out their human friends in the near future, but are we actually going to see these guys out in public looking like that? I’d much rather be served by a robot that did look more like a human and less like a harbinger of destruction or a paranoid android, thank you very much.last_img read more

Vivaldi update brings tab dragging between windows

first_imgVivaldi update brings tab dragging between windows by Martin Brinkmann on September 29, 2016 in Internet – Last Update: June 27, 2017 – 12 commentsVivaldi is without doubt one of the most promising web browsers that came out in the last couple of years.While it has made great improvements ever since its first snapshot was released — a first stable version was released earlier this year for instance — there are still some features that are not implemented yet.One of those features is dragging tabs between windows. Today’s update to Vivaldi 1.5.618.8 changes that by introducing the feature in the latest snapshot version.Snapshots are development builds used for testing features before they land in stable versions of Vivaldi. If past updating is anything to go by, you won’t have to wait a long time before the next stable version of Vivaldi gets released that includes the feature.The last stable release of Vivaldi, Vivaldi 1.4, happened at the beginning of this month. You can download the latest snapshot release on this page.Vivaldi Tab DraggingVivaldi supported tab dragging in the same browser window ever since it was released.  The developers knew obviously that the browser did not support the dragging of tabs between windows, and implemented options to move tabs around using the context menu.So, previously you had to right-click on a tab to move it to a new window or an existing window.Today’s update keeps that option, but introduces mouse dragging as well which many users may find easier to do.What’s interesting about the feature is that you can use drag and drop operations not only for single sites but also tab stacks.Tab stacking is one of the great features of the Vivaldi browser. It enables you to move multiple tabs to a single tab location effectively merging them together. This works similar to how the old Opera browser — classic Opera 12.x and earlier — handled tab stacks.Tip: Firefox users may want to check out Tab Utilities as the add-on introduces similar tab stacking functionality in the browser.Additionally, you may drag and drop tab selections to another window as well in the new release. As you may know, you can hold down the Ctrl-key to left-click on tabs to select them to process all selected ones together.Note: The feature is still a bit buggy. It happened that I could not drag tabs from one window to another. These bugs will be ironed out though before the next stable release is pushed out.Vivaldi Performance improvementsIf you are not interested in tab dragging capabilities, you may be more interested in performance improvements that you will experience when using the new version.Vivaldi claims that theming performance was improved by “roughtly 400%”, and that the browser start up improves from that as well.Closing WordsVivaldi continues to improve the web browser, and that is a good thing. There is still some work to be done before feature parity is reached with other major browsers, at least where major features are concerned.Now You: Have you tried Vivaldi? What’s your taken on the browser’s state?SummaryArticle NameVivaldi update brings tab dragging between windowsDescriptionThe latest development snapshot of the Vivaldi Browser, version 1.5.618.8, ships with performance improvements and window tab dragging.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more


More than 12 million invested in terminal safety

first_img“The San Miguel terminal is the face of Mexico, as it is one of the destinations that receives millions of international tourists,” she said. Ricalde also explained that Apiqroo has allocated 2.5 million peso for the installation of a system of 217 high-resolution smart cameras that operate in real time at the terminals of Isla Mujeres, Puerto Juárez, Punta Sam, Puerto Morelos and Cozumel to reinforce surveillance in the facilities of these ports. The state official added that the administration also invested more than 8 million peso in the acquisition of four detector arcs for physical and documentary verification, as well as leasing of X-ray security equipment and hiring specialized surveillance for the operation of this team. Cancun, Riviera Maya, Q.R. — The general director of the Integral Port Administration of Quintana Roo says more than 12 million peso has been invested in maritime terminal safety for Isla Mujeres, Cozumel, Puerto Juárez, Punta Sam and Chetumal. Alicia Ricalde explained that a descent ramp 66 meters long was built at the San Miguel terminal in Cozumel, which in 2018, was used by 4.5 million passengers. She noted that two arches already operate at the San Miguel terminal in Cozumel and that the remaining two will be installed in Isla Mujeres. Alicia Ricalde Magaña, director of la Administración Portuaria Integral de Quintana Roo (Apiqroo), says 12.3 million peso from its own resources has been invested to ensure the safety of those using the maritime terminals. She stressed that the company’s vocation is to provide security, comfort, cleanliness and efficiency to the traveler who uses the quays of Quintana Roo, therefore, “the guard will not be lowered” in improving services.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window) “One of the instructions of Governor Carlos Joaquín is to spare no resources to improve our facilities and services in order to provide confidence and security to the millions of passengers who choose the ports operated by Apiqroo and visit the tourist destinations of Quintana Roo,” she stressed.last_img read more
