Nova Scotians will now get public alerts on their cell phones from the public emergency alerting system. A test alert will take place on May 9 at 1:55 p.m. as part of Emergency Preparedness Week. The Alert Ready system allows emergency management officials to send out public alerts in times of emergency. Participants in the national system include private and public broadcasters, cell phone service providers and government organizations. “We know that using multiple communication channels during emergency situations will help reach Nova Scotians more quickly so they can take action if necessary,” said Derek Mombourquette Minister responsible for the Emergency Management Office. “The use of cell phones to communicate an emergency allows officials to reach people wherever they are and target a specific area where there is imminent danger.” The Emergency Management Office sends test alerts several times a year on TV and radio. Cell phones will now be part of the alert. The test begins with a loud alert sound, followed by a spoken message through television and radio and a message on cell phone screens. If a cell phone is switched off or on silent mode, there will be no sound but a message will be displayed and the phone may vibrate if it is in silent mode. In addition to the alert system, the Emergency Management Office uses Twitter, Facebook and emails to contact first responders and emergency management officials throughout the province in times of emergency. The program is led by Pelmorex Weather Networks (Television) Inc. Information about cell phone compatibility is available at http://www.alertready.ca .
MONTREAL – This isn’t your average teacher assistant.Nao is a little robot which held its own news conference in Montreal on Thursday to outline its own accomplishments, particularly in dealing with students with autism spectrum disorder or those with learning difficulties.The humanoid robot, which has visited elementary and secondary schools in Quebec this year, is composed of cameras, sensors and microphones and can see and hear. It can also recognize humans and interact with them.Nao, which is 58 centimetres tall, is driven by artificial intelligence and is described as humanoid because it spontaneously answers questions and recognizes certain human emotions.Universite de Montreal professor Thierry Karsenti, Canada Research Chair in Technologies in Education, came up with the idea of using Nao to help students learn.Karsenti asked students in disadvantaged neighbourhoods to program Nao with different degrees of difficulty.He says the robot has given them much needed skills for the 21st century as well as self-confidence.
Peter Rakobowchuk, The Canadian Press MONTREAL — Seven years after it was created, Quebec’s anti-corruption unit is having difficulty recruiting members and filling a number of positions.Frederick Gaudreau, the interim head of the agency known by its French acronym, UPAC, admits unflattering coverage in the media hasn’t helped.“Yes, it’s a reason, I don’t want to deny it,” Gaudreau said at a recent news conference during the presentation of the unit’s annual report. “I won’t hide from you that it’s a challenge to recruit people.”The report also revealed that there was a 30 per cent rate of voluntary departures among permanent employees at UPAC.The unit, which has about 350 employees, was created by former premier Jean Charest in 2011 amid allegations of corruption in Quebec’s construction industry and the alleged illegal financing of political parties.Gaudreau recently took over as the unit’s director after his predecessor, Robert Lafreniere, tendered his resignation on Oct. 1 — the day of the last provincial election.No reason was given for Lafreniere’s decision to step down. He had been at the head of the unit since it was created. He was reconfirmed in the job in 2016 and his mandate was supposed to end in 2021.However, Quebec media have been reporting on turmoil within the anti-corruption unit for months, and the reports suggest the unit has a difficult work environment with low morale.Documents leaked to the press also revealed UPAC has for years been investigating Charest and Liberal party treasurer Marc Bibeau on illegal electoral financing suspicions.No arrests have been made in either investigation and Charest has denied any wrongdoing.Gaudreau was coy when asked on Saturday if the two men are still being investigated.“If we talk about an investigation that’s underway, we could put the investigation at risk,” he said. “It’s important not to comment on an investigation that’s underway.”A Liberal member of the Quebec legislature, who says he was “destroyed” after being targeted by UPAC, is suing the provincial government for $550,000.In October 2017, Guy Ouellette was arrested by the anti-corruption unit on suspicion he was responsible for leaking sensitive information about the investigation into Charest and Bibeau.Ouellette, a former provincial police officer, denied the claims and was never charged.Gaudreau admitted that the negative media coverage has affected the recruitment of officers to join the unit, but it’s something he hopes to change.“My objective, I would say, is to assure the population that the work is being done properly in the field (and) remove any uneasiness and any preoccupation that people have had in the past,” he said.An internal report in December 2017, which was leaked to the media, talked of palpable tensions and a lack of confidence in management among the unit’s employees.Quebec’s public security department announced in October that the province’s independent police watchdog, known as BEI, will investigate leaks of confidential information apparently coming from UPAC.Gaudreau said about a dozen positions for investigators and several support staff positions now need to be filled.He noted that there’s little interest among the younger generation of police officers to fight against corruption because of the complexity of the inquiries, which take a lot of time.“People who have a tendency to work on short-term dossiers are not necessarily motivated by our inquiries,” he said.Gaudreau said that, while he didn’t have exact figures, a large portion of the police being hired by UPAC don’t have any experience handling investigations.“It’s clear to me that we need to evolve the model into UPAC 2.0,” he added.Gaudreau also said he hasn’t excluded the possibility of going outside Quebec to look for investigators.“We’re open to considering anything,” he said. “What we are looking for are highly-motivated people who are best qualified to do this type of an inquiry.”— With files from Caroline Plante
Rabat – The feature documentary Amussu, about an Amazigh (Berber) resistance movement against a silver mine in Morocco, has won the “Nouzha Drissi Grand Prix” at the 11th Agadir International Documentary Film Festival (FIDADOC).Amassu, by director Nadir Bouhmouch, tells the story of a protest by the villagers of Imider, a remote Amazigh village in south-east Morocco, against the exploitation of water resources by the mining giant Managem. It was filmed in 2016, five years after the protests first began.Imider villagers protest against exploitation of water resources by the silver mine Managem, in the documentary Amussu.Yesterday, Bouhmouch expressed his gratitude for the prize. He added however that the award “can never replace [his] real objective: to defend the environmental and social rights of the community, to push for concrete change, to expose Managem corporation and force it to accept the demands of Amussu, and ultimately […] to challenge capitalism and the state everywhere.” Read also: Toronto Hot Docs Film Festival to Premiere Moroccan Amazigh Amussu FilmAs part of its silver mining operations, Managem was siphoning groundwater, drying out crops and almond groves, and polluting drinking water with cyanide. Despite promises from Managem that the mine would bring economic growth to the community, few of the Imider villagers were employed by Managem and the area remained one of the poorest regions in Morocco.In 2011, the villagers decided to occupy a major pipeline to the mine, shutting off Managem’s water supply in protest for their right to water, land, and economic opportunities. This marked the start of a six year sit-in.“Amussu” was filmed in Tamazight (Berber) language, and adds to a small, but growing body of Amazigh cinema. Bouhmouch created the film in collaboration with the Imider community, who wrote the screenplay and produced the documentary.Villagers from Imider answer questions after the screening of Amussu at FIDADOC.The film was applauded by a near full house at the FIDADOC screening in Agadir on June 20. Villagers from Imider attended the event, answering questions about the film and the protest movement.Members of the audience, in solidarity for Imider community’s fight for their rights, stood up and shared the hand gesture of Amazigh identity, raising their hands and forming the number “3” with their fingers.
To highlight the role of space-based science and technologies and their applications for sustainable development, the UN Office, known by the acronym UNOOSA, with cooperation of NASA with Mr. Kelly, is asking the public to submit photos depicting just why space matters to us in our daily lives.“[It is] an honour to have Scott Kelly share his experience in space with the United Nations,” said UNOOSA Director Simonetta Di Pippo. “This campaign will help to promote the use of space science and technologies in such areas as disaster risk reduction, tracking the effects of climate change and in the equality of access to education and telemedicine.”Mr. Kelly is currently on board the International Space Station on a unique one-year mission, together with Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko, where he will be setting a single-mission record for a US astronaut. Speaking from the space station, Mr. Scott said: “We learn something every time we go to space. And the International Space Station is one of the world’s greatest laboratories – where we are helping with advances in medicine, biology, chemistry and materials sciences. It is the pursuit of these advances off the Earth that help improve lives on Earth.”“And that is why I am so committed to space exploration and embarking on this year-long mission,” he said “I look forward to seeing the images from people around the world on how space technology has impacted them where they live.”The deadline for submission of photos under a monthly theme is the 10th of each month, and each month a winner will be chosen and announced by Scott Kelly from the space station.Participants are asked to submit pictures through Instagram using #whyspacematters and tagging @UNOOSA. Kelly will announce the winning photo each month by posting it from his Instagram account @StationCDRKelly.The UN office has given examples of themes that can be used in photographs, such as “space for developing economies,” “environment and climate change,” “disaster risk reduction.”UNOOSA, which is based in Vienna, Austria, is responsible for promoting international cooperation in the peaceful uses of outer space, and serves as the secretariat for the UN General Assembly’s only body dealing exclusively with international cooperation in the peaceful uses of outer space, the UN Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (COPUOS), which is currently holding its fifty-eighth session, in Vienna, through the end of the end of the week.
The NCAA has ended its contract with EA Sports and will no longer allow the gaming company to use its logo and name in their video games. The college sports organization is currently involved in a lawsuit where they’re being accused of owing billions of dollars to former NCAA players for allowing their images and likenesses to be used by the gaming company.“We are confident in our legal position regarding the use of our trademarks in video games,” the NCAA said in its statement. “But given the current business climate and costs of litigation, we determined participating in this game is not in the best interest of the NCAA. The NCAA has never licensed the use of current student-athlete names, images or likenesses to EA. The NCAA has no involvement in licenses between EA and former student-athletes.”NCAA Football 2014 will be the last EA Sports game with the NCAA. The NCAA said their current contract, which expires June 2014, will be the last agreement.“Member colleges and universities license their own trademarks and other intellectual property for the video game,” the NCAA said in a statement. “They will have to independently decide whether to continue those business arrangements in the future.”
Ohio State redshirt junior cornerback Denzel Ward prepares for a play during the Buckeyes’ season-opening 49-21 win over Indiana on Aug. 31 in Bloomington, Indiana. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorIndiana quarterback Richard Lagow made it clear early that the Hoosiers’ offensive game plan was to attack an Ohio State secondary that lost both starting cornerbacks and a starting safety from a season ago.For the most part, that plan proved effective as Lagow finished the game 40-for-65 in pass attempts with 410 passing yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions, even though Indiana lost 49-21.“Our defense was exposed big time in the first half. Our pass defense was awful,” Meyer said Thursday. “It was not complicated, they were just picking on the corners.”Playing against a quarterback in Baker Mayfield of Oklahoma on Saturday, Ohio State’s secondary is going to be in for another major challenge. Mayfield finished his team’s season opener 19-for-20 with 329 passing yards and three touchdown passes en route to a 56-7 beatdown of University of Texas-El Paso.Defensive coordinator Greg Schiano said Monday that defending against an athlete like Mayfield could provide his secondary with issues, if it doesn’t step up its game from this past weekend.“[Mayfield]’s got incredible arm strength, and when I say incredible, he can really throw the ball down the field,” Schiano said. “He is most anxious when he has a little bit of space and he can let receivers down the field because he has a strong-enough arm to go roll over there and throw it all the way back over there. And you saw it in our game, he had a touchdown on us last year.”In its matchup against another gifted quarterback in Lagow, Ohio State seemed to get off to a slow start.Through the first half of the game, Lagow showed no hesitation, frequently passing into what had been a hyped up secondary for Ohio State. He targeted Denzel Ward — the third man in the three-man cornerback rotation last season — 10 times during the half and managed to complete three of those passes for a total of 29 yards and a touchdown, the first Ward had ever surrendered.By the time the half was over, Indiana gained at least 15 passing yards on eight occasions. Of those, five were allowed by the fresh-faced cornerbacks.“We gave up three plays of plus-25 yards or more. You can’t do that,” Schiano said. “They made some plays on us. In looking at it, it was a group of guys that have played some, but haven’t started, haven’t been in that role.”But the inexperience was not the only cause for struggles among the corners.Indiana’s leading receiver for the game, the 6-foot-4, 220-pound Simmie Cobbs, trounced all over Ward and Kendall Sheffield — his two primary defenders — in the first half. He had no trouble leaping over the 5-foot-10 Ward and six-foot Sheffield, making acrobatic catches and back-shoulder fades as though it were nothing more than practice on his way to 98 receiving yards and a touchdown on just seven first-half receptions. He finished the game with 149 receiving yards with 11 receptions.Meyer said the difference in height can put a corner at a disadvantage, but that the gap should not be enough of an obstacle to allow for blown coverage.“Everyone wants a 6-foot-1 corner. There’s not many of them out there. We had Eli [Apple], Marshon [Lattimore] and Gareon [Conley] were all the long corners. Denzel, he’s not that small, but you have to be exceptional in technique,” Meyer said. “Obviously the vertical jump, to be able to knock a ball out, we practice the heck out of that. That’s much more difficult. Can be done, though.”And it seemed that in the second half, the gap in height seemed to have much less of an impact on the corners. With 10:11 remaining in the game, Lagow again looked Ward’s way to another 6-foot-4 receiver, Donovan Hale, and attempted to complete what would have been a 20-yard pass. But this time, Ward won the battle and came down with an interception.The improved play in the second half came not just from Ward, but also from the rest of the secondary. The unit held Lagow to just 151 second-half passing yards and one touchdown after he tallied 286 passing yards and two touchdowns through the air in the first half.“I was concerned a little bit during the first half, but I was pleased the way they rebounded in the second half,” Schiano said. “Hopefully they’ve got some experience under their belt now and we can move forward.”Schiano added that with the pressure of the position of cornerback, the unit will need to continue to exhibit a similar performance level moving forward if it is going to live up to the lofty standard set at Ohio State.“Around here, the standard is you don’t allow catches,” Schiano said. “When you play corner, it’s not the five you made that stick out, it’s the two you missed. And that’s the position. If you don’t like it, go play something else.”

Share Michael Stravato for The Texas TribuneVoters in Houston arrive to cast ballots during the last hour of voting in the primaries on March 6, 2018.Tuesday’s runoffs set the major party ballots for a November general election where Texas Republicans will be trying to maintain a 24-year winning streak in statewide elections while Democrats will be trying to breach the red seawall with a blue tsunami.The top of the general election ticket was set in March, when U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, a Republican, and U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke, a Democrat, won their parties’ nomination for U.S. Senate.Based on the piles of donations the two candidates have collected and the public interest they’ve generated to date, that looks to be the marquee race this year. Ordinarily, that’s the place of the race for governor; even in years when one party or the other is dominant, Texas gubernatorial races often dominate the news and public conversation in the state during non-presidential election years.This year, with Gov. Greg Abbott’s relative popularity and huge financialadvantages, Texas Democrats advanced two largely untested candidates to the runoff. And on Tuesday, voters chose former Dallas County Sheriff Lupe Valdez to challenge the incumbent in the general election.Neither of the Democrats’ top candidates for that seat raised much money; they were outdone in that respect not only by the U.S. Senate candidates but also by a handful of candidates running for congressional and legislative seats. Abbott, on the other hand, had more than $41 million in his campaign accounts as of the latest reports.Valdez has a lot of work to do, and fast, to get in that race. While they’re at it, Cruz and O’Rourke will keep chewing up the scenery.Most of the statewide executive branch offices are on the ballot this year, along with one U.S. Senate spot, all 36 U.S. House seats, 16 of the 31 Texas Senate slots and all 150 seats in the Texas House.Little of that was on the line Tuesday. This was the last of the intramural fights between factions in the two political parties.For Democrats, that was best exemplified in the 7th Congressional District, where national Democrats — through the Democratic National Congressional Committee — endorsed Lizzie Pannill Fletcher over Laura Moser. That initially seemed to help Moser more than it helped Fletcher, turning a local campaign to challenge U.S. Rep. John Culberson, R-Houston, into a family fight among the Democrats. But when it was over on Tuesday, Fletcher won easily, setting up a November contest where the incumbent Republican will be defending himself in a district where Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump in 2016. At the same time, Republicans argue, Culberson himself was winning and statewide Republicans won their races by an average of more than 11 percentage points.Two other Republican congressional incumbents — Pete Sessions of Dallas and Will Hurd of Helotes — are in districts with Clinton-Trump numbers like Culberson’s. Democrats had runoffs in both of those districts: Sessions will face Colin Allred, and Hurd will face Gina Ortiz Jones.For Republicans, the poster children of factional fights might have been the candidates for Texas House District 8, where Thomas McNutt, a conservative who lost the primary two years ago, was up against a more moderate candidate, Cody Harris. The retiring incumbent, state Rep. Byron Cook, R-Corsicana, backed Harris, in a race seen in Austin as a proxy for friends and foes of House Speaker Joe Straus. Cook is one of Straus’ most important allies.• If you tote up the head-to-head races between Republican Texas House candidates backed by conservative and moderate donors and organizations, the moderates won five of six.• Two House incumbents in potential swing seats found out through Tuesday’s runoffs who they’ll face in November. State Rep. Victoria Neave, D-Dallas, will face Republican Deanna Maria Metzger. And state Rep. Paul Workman, R-Austin, will face Democrat Vikki Goodwin.• The only two incumbents on Tuesday’s runoff ballots — state Reps. Scott Cosper, R-Killeen, and René Oliveira, D-Brownsville — both lost. Republican Brad Buckley and Democrat Alex Dominguez, respectively, will advance to the general election.• Turnout was terrible, which isn’t unusual for Texas in general and for Texas runoffs in particular. In incomplete returns, it appeared that less than 500,000 of the state’s 21.3 million voting age adults showed up. About 2.6 million Texans voted in the March primaries — 1.5 million on the Republican side, and 1.1 million on the Democratic side. That was just over 17 percent of the state’s registered voters, according to the Texas Secretary of State. For comparison, turnout in the last presidential election in Texas, in 2016, was 59.4 percent.Disclosure: Paul Workman has been a financial supporter of The Texas Tribune, a nonprofit, nonpartisan news organization that is funded in part by donations from members, foundations and corporate sponsors.

Around 1,000 devotees from 62 countries sang ‘kirtans’ and danced all through the 6-km stretch from Rajapur Jagannath temple to Gundicha temple, a grand structure constructed adjacent to Prabhupad Ghat at Mayapur, the ISKCON sources said. Inaugurating the celebration at Mayapur, Justice Sambhudh Chakraborty of Calcutta High Court said that Jagannath Rathyatra signifies the progress of life and humanity.

MIAMI — Forecasters warn Alberto, a still-menacing depression after its Memorial Day landfall on the Gulf Coast, is scattering heavy rains around the South amid heightened risks of flash flooding.The first named storm of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season, Subtropical Storm Alberto lumbered ashore Monday afternoon in the Florida Panhandle and then weakened to a depression overnight as it trekked inland. The storm that sprang from warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico was now a vast, soggy system as it headed inland, dumping heavy rains in bursts all around the region.Though the storm had weakened, forecasters warned, it was capable of potentially life-threatening flash floods in the coming hours or days as the vast system spreads over Alabama and large areas of Georgia, Tennessee and the Carolinas.Authorities did not directly attribute any deaths or injuries immediately to Alberto. But in North Carolina, the state’s governor noted a television news anchor and a photojournalist were killed Monday while covering the fringes of the large system. A tree that became uprooted from rain-soaked ground toppled on their SUV, killing them instantly, authorities said.North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper urged residents to take all precautions.“Two journalists working to keep the public informed about this storm have tragically lost their lives, and we mourn with their families, friends and colleagues,” Cooper said in a statement. “North Carolina needs to take Alberto seriously. I urge everyone to keep a close eye on forecasts, warnings and road conditions, especially in western North Carolina where even heavier rain is predicted.”More news: TRAVELSAVERS welcomes Julie Virgilio to the teamBetween four and eight inches (10-25 centimetres) of rain could soak the Florida Panhandle, Alabama, and western Georgia before the storm moves on. Isolated deluges of 12 inches (30 centimetres) also are possible in spots as the system heads toward the Tennessee Valley on Tuesday and later this week into the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes region.Earlier Monday, Alberto rolled up big waves and tides along beaches of the northern Gulf Coast. Lifeguards posted red flags along the white sands of Pensacola Beach, where swimming and wading were banned as Alberto disrupted long holiday weekend plans for millions.The storm forced some Memorial Day tributes to be cancelled across Florida’s Panhandle. Safety was the priority, but the decision was still a “heartbreaker,” said Tom Rice, a 29-year-old Army veteran who had helped with planning for a ceremony at Beal Memorial Cemetery in Fort Walton Beach.Some stragglers still defied rain to pay tribute at the cemetery’s Veterans Tribute Tower, however. Rice said American flags had been placed Saturday on the graves of all 1,700 veterans buried in the cemetery.More news: Help Princess Cruises break the world record for largest vow renewal at sea“We got the flags out,” Rice told the Northwest Florida Daily News as wind whipped a massive U.S. flag flying at half-staff. “That’s what’s important.”Along the Florida Panhandle, tourists vowed Alberto wouldn’t dampen their spirits.Jason Powell sought to keep his children entertained with movies and TV, adding he hoped the sun would come out again after Alberto blew over. “So far we’ve seen a lot of wind and the ocean is really high, covering up the entire beach,” Powell remarked.Janet Rhumes said her group of friends from Kansas had been planning their Memorial Day weekend on Navarre Beach since October. They stocked up on groceries and settled in for card games. “We’ve never seen one before and we’re here celebrating a friend’s 20th birthday,” Rhumes said. “So how often can you say you rode a storm out?”As Alberto’s weakening centre headed inland it was deprived of the warm Gulf waters that fuel tropical weather systems. As a subtropical storm, Alberto had a less defined and cooler centre than a tropical storm, and its strongest winds were found farther from its centre.

Augusto Pinochet’s military government said Toha committed suicide six months after he was taken prisoner during the Sept. 11, 1973 coup that toppled Allende. It said he hung himself with his belt in the closet of his hospital room.The family never believed it, in part because Toha was a tall man, taller than the closet railing, and was very weak after nearly starving to death in a remote and frigid prison camp in Patagonia.Dr. Patricio Bustos, who directs Chile’s national coroner’s office, determined last year that Toha was murdered by strangling. But two other autopsies were inconclusive. Now it’s up to investigative judge Jorge Zepeda, who ordered the body exhumed, to rule once and for all whether it was murder or suicide.Bustos has no doubts, telling The Associated Press on Monday that evidence shows someone other than Toha fatally compressed his neck.Neither does the family: Carolina Toha, who couldn’t contain her tears during the reburial, said “it’s already been established that our father was murdered,” and reiterated her call for those who have evidence to come forward and name those responsible.“There is hope. You have to be persistent, despite the passage of time,” she said, directing her words to other victims of the 1973-1990 dictatorship. “We can still find the truth and this truth comes with the justice we’ve waited for.” Jose Toha, a socialist like Allende, was arrested in the presidential palace as it was bombarded on Pinochet’s orders on Sept. 11, 1973, and taken to Dawson Island, a frigid prison camp in southern Patagonia.According to the court investigation and witnesses imprisoned along with Toha, he was relentlessly tortured there and brought near death to the military hospital where his body was found hanging from a closet rail on March 15, 1974.Chile’s pathologists have been busy re-examining emblematic deaths linked to the coup recently, clearing up lingering mysteries.The coroner’s office found that President Allende did commit suicide rather than surrender to Pinochet’s troops, using a machine gun that Cuban President Fidel Castro had given him. It found that Eduardo Frei-Montalva, who preceded Allende as president and later became a Pinochet critic, was poisoned to death, rather than dying from an infection. And it determined that Gen. Alberto Bachelet, Michelle’s father, died of a heart attack provoked by torture on March 12, 1974.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
