New Regulations Will Improve Contaminated Site Management

first_imgThe province is introducing new rules to provide a clearer, faster and easier process for cleaning up contaminated sites. Environment Minister Sterling Belliveau released the regulations today, March 12, which were developed after extensive consultation. “We’re proud to bring forward the province’s first contaminated site regulations,” said Mr. Belliveau. “These new rules will encourage the cleanup and redevelopment of contaminated sites to better protect our environment.” The regulations address recommendations made by the auditor general in 2010 and meet another target in the Environmental Goals and Sustainable Prosperity Act. “Nova Scotia’s new contaminated site regulations were developed in a transparent manner, considering the input of many stakeholders,” said George Vincent, senior regulatory affairs advisor for Imperial Oil. “The regulations reflect current best practices, are based on sound science and will be a strong enabler to ensuring health and environment goals are achieved while encouraging contaminated site redevelopment.” The regulations ensure that site professionals are qualified to do the work, allow property owners to get a release from further enforcement by the department once a site is cleaned to provincial standards, and support creating an online registry of contaminated properties. The new rules will come into effect in July 2013. For more information on the regulations, visit www.gov.ns.ca/nse/contaminatedsites/ .last_img read more

Trudeau nominates lawyer Caroline Maynard as new information commissioner

first_imgOTTAWA – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has nominated government lawyer Caroline Maynard to be Canada’s new information commissioner.Maynard, currently the interim chairperson and chief executive officer of the Military Grievances External Review Committee, would replace Suzanne Legault, whose term in the role is coming to an end.Legault began her seven-year term in June 2010, but was reappointed on an interim basis for a two-month term late last year to allow the government more time to find a successor.Maynard’s nomination must still be approved by the House of Commons and the Senate.The commissioner’s office was established in 1983 under the Access to Information Act, and aims to encourage and help federal institutions to make information more easily available, while providing oversight for freedom of information legislation.Maynard, a bilingual member of the Quebec bar with a degree from the University of Sherbrooke, has spent 20 years in government service.After a stint in private practice, she joined the Canada Revenue Agency before being appointed as legal counsel with the RCMP external review committee in 1998.She served as legal counsel for the Office of the Judge Advocate General at National Defence and then joined military grievances review committee as director general of operations and general counsel.Trudeau said she will make an excellent commissioner.“She has a deep appreciation of the need for an open and transparent government and I trust she would do an outstanding job on delivering the mandate of the office of the information commissioner,” he said in a statement.last_img read more

Trudeau splits CrownIndigenous relations northern affairs in cabinet shuffle

first_imgTodd LamirandeAPTN NewsPrime Minister Justin Trudeau announced a cabinet shuffle on Wednesday, adding new ministers and shifting responsibilities for others.Carolyn Bennett is becoming the minister of Crown-Indigenous relations – dropping “northern affairs” from her title.Dominic LeBlanc, previously the minister of fisheries, oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard, will now be overseeing northern affairs in his new portfolio. He’s now the minister of intergovernmental and northern affairs and internal trade.The significance of splitting northern affairs from Crown-Indigenous relations is unclear.A release from the prime minister’s office states, however, that Bennett will continue working “to renew the nation-to-nation, Inuit-Crown and government-to-government relationship between Canada and Indigenous peoples.”A spokesperson from Bennett’s office said the minister will remain responsible for any negotiations and agreements concerning Indigenous people in the North.Any non-Indigenous issues in the North, including contaminated sites and the devolution of Nunavut, will fall under LeBlanc’s portfolio.In a press release, Yukon Premier Sandy Silver, Northwest Territories Premier Bob McLeod and Nunavut Premier Joe Savikataaq congratulated the new cabinet ministers and stressed the need for a “more flexible approach to federal-territorial infrastructure funding.”Meanwhile, Jane Philpott remains the minister of Indigenous Services.As the new minister of natural resources, Amarjeet Sohi will be answering questions on the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project, along with other important pipeline projects.He’s taking over the portfolio from Jim Carr, who will become the new minister of international trade diversification.tlamirande@aptn.calast_img read more

BJP has deviated from path of truth, says Priyanka Gandhi

first_imgAgra: Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Monday alleged that the BJP had deviated from the path of truth and it seemed that the saffron party neither has faith in democracy nor in the people.The Congress secretary general in-charge for Uttar Pradesh (East) also said the BJP instead of speaking about India and what it had done for its youth was talking about Pakistan. “It seems that the government has faith neither in democracy, its institutions nor the people..had they been real nationalists they would have tread the path of truth. “They would have understood that this country is based on truth and those who deviate from it are not let off…you will also not be excused as you, too, have deviated from the path of truth long ago,” she said at a rally here. The Congress leader was campaigning for the party’s Fatehpur Sikri Lok Sabha seat candidate and Uttar Pradesh unit president Raj Babbar. Lashing out at the BJP government, Priyanka Gandhi said during election time, they are talking about nationalism and Pakistan. “They must talk about India, what they have done for the youth, farmers and other sections of society. They must tell what their agenda for women and women security is,”she said. Taking a dig at the BJP publicity campaign, she said the truth is being “drowned” in such campaigns. “I have seen the reality in the eyes of youth who complain about jobs, seen it in the eyes of potato growers who come to Rae Bareli and Lucknow to tell about their loans and the high costs that they have to bear,” Priyanka Gandhi said. Citing the example of a farmer here who reportedly sold his produce for Rs 490 and send the money to Prime Minister Narendra Modi as a mark of protest, she said,”He sent this money to the PM to apprise him about the truth of the country and its farmers.” “The truth is being drowned in publicity…you all know better…whenever a question is raised the questioner is told that he is an anti-national,” Priyanka Gandhi said. She, while talking about the Congress manifesto, mistakenly said that “aisi yojnaein ghoshna patra mein hai jisse aapko swastha sarkari aspatalon mein muft milega (There are schemes in the manifesto through which you will get free health in government hospitals)”. However, the Congress leader was quick to realise her mistake and smilingly remarked, “Swastha nahin… matlab swastha ki jaanch aur swastha ka ilaj muft milega (Not swasth (health)…I mean diagnosis and treatment will be free).” She quipped that “swastha bhi mil jaye toh achcha hain (It will be great if health can be given for free)”.last_img read more

TSX higher following US Canadian jobs data

The Toronto stock market made gains early Friday on the back of impressive Canadian jobs figures, while a U.S. employment report appeared to quash a possibility the Federal Reserve could move on rates.The S&P/TSX composite index gained 24.88 points to 14,427.09, while the Canadian dollar traded ahead 0.49 of a cent at 91.08 cents US.Statistics Canada said 43,000 net new jobs were added in March, though most of them were part-time positions. The figure pushed the Canadian unemployment rate one tenth of a point lower to 6.9 per cent.“The strong bounce in March employment is encouraging though it follows a 7,000 drop in February and leaves the average increase over the previous four months at a still modest 5,000,” wrote RBC Economics assistant chief economist Paul Ferley in a note.“Thus today’s report does not alter our view that monetary policy is likely to remain highly accommodative to try and sustain more robust employment growth going forward.”On Wall Street, the Dow Jones industrials gained 47.20 points to 16,619.75, the Nasdaq was up 12.51 points to 4,250.25 while the S&P 500 index moved up 6.68 of a point to 1,895.45.A separate U.S. jobs report showed that American employers added 192,000 jobs in March, but the U.S. unemployment rate was unchanged at 6.7 per cent.Because the figures matched predictions, they failed to change perceptions over the future policy path of the Federal Reserve. During the past few months, the Fed has been reducing its monetary stimulus amid mounting evidence of a sustainable economic recovery in the U.S.Prices for major commodities were up early Friday. Oil continued to rise after closing above US$100 a barrel on Thursday. May crude contracts advanced 99 cents to US$101.28 a barrel, May copper contracts gained 2.8 cents to US$3.05 a pound while June bullion gained US$12.70 to US$1,297.30 an ounce.European bourses were generally up Friday. London’s FTSE 100 index was ahead 0.5 per cent, Frankfurt’s DAX advanced 0.6 per cent and the Paris CAC 40 gained 0.6 per cent.In Asia, market indexes were mixed. Tokyo’s Nikkei 225 slipped 0.5 per cent per cent, Hong Kong’s Hang Seng dropped 0.24 per cent but China’s Shanghai Composite Index gained 0.75 per cent. read more

New posting for Indias envoy to Colombo

His name has been sent for approval to the appointments committee of the Union Cabinet that approves all secretary- level appointments in the government. Kantha has also served as joint secretary heading the East Asia division in the MEA. Interestingly, overcoming political rivalry the UPA government cleared Kantha’s name despite several other claimants for the post and jockeying by the aspirants.Kantha is the son-in-law of former external affairs and finance minister and BJP leader Yashwant Sinha. “He was chosen because of his excellent professional skills as a diplomat who has a wide experience in the region,” a source told MAIL TODAY. The Indian government has cleared the decks to appoint Ashok K Kantha as a new secretary in the ministry of external affairs (MEA), Daily Mail India reported today. Kantha is currently India’s high commissioner to Sri Lanka.He will be in-charge of East Asia. Kantha’s choice is good considering that he will be able to handle issues such as defending India’s interests in the South China Sea.He will also be able to provide a nuanced approach in dealing with China as a former head of the East Asia division in the foreign office.He is from the 1977 batch of the Indian Foreign Service and has also served as India’s envoy to Malaysia. Kantha will replace Sanjay Singh who will retire in April this year. read more

Sierra Leonean armed groups recommit to disarmament process UN mission

According to the UN mission, which is known by its acronym UNAMSIL, the parties made the pledge during a meeting yesterday in the eastern town of Koidu in Kono District. UNAMSIL Force Commander Lt. Gen. Daniel I. Opande, who chaired the meeting, told the participants that the purpose of the encounter was to invigorate and enhance the disarmament process so that peace could be restored in the country.For his part, a representative of RUF interim leader Gen. Issa Sesay appealed to both groups to be honest and sincere in their endorsement of peace and urged them to disarm.”There were no victors in the 10 years of war,” said Col. Augustine Gbao, the RUF Chief of Security. “We only succeeded in killing one another and destroying our country.” He said it was time for all Sierra Leoneans to abandon their selfish ends and embrace peace so that they could reconstruct their ravaged country.Chief Sansie Kwigba, the leader of CDF-Donsos in Kono District, said that he had met earlier in the day with CDF commanders and combatants at Njagbwema and had given them a message from the Government of Sierra Leone expressing appreciation for their contributions in defence of the country during the war. He said that although the combatants were willing to disarm, they feared being attacked as had happened in the past. Chief Kwigba said he had allayed their fears and asked them to relay the information to all combatants so they could come forward and disarm. Speaking of behalf of both parties to the conflict, CDF representative A.M. Kongoba thanked the Force Commander for all the efforts UNAMSIL was making to restore peace to Sierra Leone so that internally displaced persons as well as refugees could return to their homes peacefully and reconstruct their lives and country. Later, Lt. Gen. Opande visited the disarmament, demobilization and reintegration camp at Yengema and talked to the ex-combatants who had already disarmed. read more

The US Women Probably Werent Going To Win The Gold Anyway

The outcome didn’t reflect the run of play: The U.S. outshot Sweden 26 to 3 and completed more than twice as many passes. U.S. goalkeeper Hope Solo said after the match that the U.S. had played “a bunch of cowards,” a reference to Sweden’s defensive tactics. Swedish coach Pia Sundhage, who used to coach the U.S., responded, “It’s OK to be a coward if you win.”Even if the American women had escaped Friday’s shootout with a win, they’d have had their work cut out for them, with just a 36 percent chance of winning their fourth straight gold medal, according to our Women’s Soccer Power Index projections.U.S. fans spoiled by all the team’s recent success — the 2015 Women’s World Cup title, the 2012 Olympic gold — might have forgotten that past performance is no guarantee of future results. But those wins were hard-earned and never guaranteed. The Americans reached the 2012 gold-medal match after barely avoiding the lottery that is a penalty shootout in their semifinal against Canada, with an Alex Morgan goal at just about the last possible moment. And last summer in Canada, the team went scoreless in the first half of its first three knockout games before getting second-half goals. Just because the U.S. women sometimes made it look easy — like when they romped over Japan in the World Cup final — doesn’t mean it was.In these Olympics, even while the U.S. women were going undefeated in their first three games and winning their group, their chance of winning the gold medal, counterintuitively, was declining, to 31 percent from 38 percent before the tournament. That was partly because the quarterfinal field was so stacked: All of the eight best teams coming into the tournament advanced from the group stage. Also, the U.S. showed some weakness in the group stage, including yielding a 90th-minute goal to Colombia that led to a disappointing 2-2 draw. The team’s rating declined slightly during the group stage from the start of the tournament. Sweden’s did, too, but the Swedes remained a tough opponent, with a 21 percent chance of beating the U.S. before Friday’s match — about the chance the Cleveland Cavaliers had of beating the Golden State Warriors when trailing 3-2 in this year’s NBA Finals. Upsets happen to favorites all the time. On Friday, one happened, finally, to the U.S. women at the Olympics.Additional research by Jay Boice. Tournament favorites usually don’t win — even big ones like the U.S. women’s soccer team. Too many things can go wrong, as they did in the penalty shootout of the USWNT’s quarterfinal loss against Sweden in the Rio Olympics on Friday. A goalkeeper guesses the right way, a usually reliable shooter sends a penalty kick over the crossbar, and suddenly the team is out of the tournament. It was the USWNT’s earliest-ever exit from an Olympics or World Cup. With the Americans eliminated, the draw has opened up for new favorite Germany, which advanced to the semifinals later Friday, and host Brazil, which plays its quarterfinal against Australia on Friday night. (If Brazil wins, it could overtake Germany as the favorite, depending on the scores of its quarterfinal and Friday night’s other match, between Canada and France.) read more

Passenger jet in nearmiss with large drone at 10000 feet on Heathrow

first_imgFile photo dated 01/07/15 of a plane taking off at Heathrow airport Two pilots were left stunned when their passenger jet was involved in a near-miss with a large drone.They spotted the gadget, which had multiple arms and up to eight rotors, on the approach to Heathrow Airport in west London, the UK Airprox Board (UKAB) said.They both exclaimed: “Was that a drone? At 10,000 feet!”There was “no time to react” as they watched the flying object for around five seconds as it passed down the right side of the plane, according to the report. File photo dated 01/07/15 of a plane taking off at Heathrow airportCredit:PA Show more center_img Police officers at the airport were alerted to the near-miss, but the drone operator could not be traced.The pilots estimated the separation between the aircraft and the drone to be 100 feet (30 metres) vertically and 200 metres (656 feet) horizontally.The UKAB concluded that “safety was not assured” during the incident on November 11 last year, and determined the risk to be the second most serious category.It was one of four near-misses between aircraft and drones in the latest monthly UKAB report, bringing the total over the past 12 months to 59.Civil Aviation Authority rules state that drones must not be flown above 400 feet or near airports or airfields.In November it launched a website to publish its revised code of conduct for drones, called the dronecode.Ministers are considering mandatory registration for new drones to crack down on reckless users.The proposal is part of a Department for Transport consultation on improving drone safety. It is hoped the scheme could help authorities identify the owners of drones being flown illegally. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Cutting edge train unloaders help boost FMGs export capabilities to 115 Mty

first_imgOn the back of the reliable performance of its first Metso twin cell, tandem train unloader commissioned in 2008, Fortescue Metals Group (FMG) awarded Metso a contract to supply two more identical machines.

Here Are Vintage Photos of Cats Doing Human Things

first_img Sure, countless cats and dogs are now Instagram-famous for getting into hilarious and adorable human-like situations, but the concept has been around for over a century.In 1914, photographer Harry Whittier Frees shot an entire series of photos showing costumed cats in human situations, like doing the laundry, baking a cake, or having a wedding. His photographs are tucked away in the archives of the Library of Congress, a collection of viral-worthy images that also feature puppies.According to NPR, Frees used live models and no photo trickery (no Photoshop — or digital cameras — yet in the first half of the 20th century). “He rents all models from neighbors, breeders or pet shops,” Life magazine explained in a March 1, 1937, profile. His photographs of cutesy animals became famous and were featured in postcards, calendars, and magazines. Frees died in 1953.Planting Time(Photo Credit: Harry Whittier Frees / Library of Congress)The Wedding(Photo Credit: Harry Whittier Frees / Library of Congress)Fire!(Photo Credit: Harry Whittier Frees / Library of Congress)Pumping for Water(Photo Credit: Harry Whittier Frees / Library of Congress)Skipping Rope(Photo Credit: Harry Whittier Frees / Library of Congress)Hanging Up the Wash(Photo Credit: Harry Whittier Frees / Library of Congress)Doing the Dishes(Photo Credit: Harry Whittier Frees / Library of Congress)The Acrobats(Photo Credit: Harry Whittier Frees / Library of Congress)On the Fast Express(Photo Credit: Harry Whittier Frees / Library of Congress)Birthday Party!(Photo Credit: Harry Whittier Frees / Library of Congress)Ready for a Dive(Photo Credit: Harry Whittier Frees / Library of Congress)Ten Pins(Photo Credit: Harry Whittier Frees / Library of Congress)The Aviator(Photo Credit: Harry Whittier Frees / Library of Congress)More on Geek.com:Grumpy Cat, Adorable Furball and Viral Meme Sensation, Is DeadLil Bub’s Genetics Reveal Key Clues About Her Unique Cat FeaturesWatch: Japanese Company Creates Traffic Safety Video for Cats Firefighters Respond to Fire Alarm at Shelter, Discover Cat Triggered ItCat Gets Stuck in Washing Machine for 35-Minute Cycle Stay on targetlast_img read more
