The Montreal-based airline says it is sending 10 aircraft to the Caribbean nation — seven to Punta Cana, two to Puerto Plata and one to Samana. Air Transat says all aircraft should arrive in the Dominican Republic by this morning and passengers should be back in Canada by afternoon or early evening.———CENTRAL BANK POISED TO MAKE RATE ANNOUNCEMENTSome experts expect the Bank of Canada to boost its trend-setting rate today, not later this fall as they had anticipated. They’ve changed their forecasts due to a surprisingly powerful performance from the Canadian economy. Last week, the latest growth numbers showed the economy expanded at an annual pace of 4.5 per cent in the second quarter — a bigger-than-expected surge driven by consumer spending.———POLL: HALF OF WORKERS LIVING PAYCHEQUE TO PAYCHEQUEA new survey by the Canadian Payroll Association suggests nearly half of workers are living paycheque to paycheque due to soaring spending and debt levels. The poll found that 47 per cent of respondents said it would be difficult to meet their financial obligations if their paycheque was delayed by even a single week. The summer survey of 4,766 Canadian also found that 35 per cent said they feel overwhelmed by their level of debt.———HELP FOR B.C. RANCHERS HURT BY WILDFIRESRanchers who have lost animals and land to the wildfires in British Columbia are getting help from the provincial and federal governments.

Agriculture Minister Lawrence MacAulay says the money will also help ranchers with vet bills, feed, fencing, transportation and infrastructure not covered by insurance.———‘GRABHER’ LICENSE PLATE CASE BACK IN COURTA legal battle over whether Nova Scotia violated the constitution when it ruled a man’s personalized licence plate was offensive to women is expected back in court today with fresh arguments. Lorne Grabher had his licence plate with the text “GRABHER” — his last name — revoked last year after government officials agreed with a complainant that it was a “socially unacceptable slogan.” Grabher’s lawyers say the regulation is so vague that it violates the freedom of expression guarantee in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.———ALSO IN THE NEWS TODAY:— Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will attend the National Caucus meeting in Kelowna, B.C.— The federal Conservatives shadow cabinet will meet in Winnipeg.— StatsCanada will update several indicators today, including Canadian international merchandise trade for July.— The Fraser Institute will release studies examining education spending in Ontario, Quebec, Alberta and British Columbia.— The Nova Scotia Federation of Labour announces the next step to fight Bill 148, which legislates a wage pattern on 75,000 public workers.— Convenience store operator Alimentation Couche-Tard will release first-quarter results.— Sentencing in Bridgewater, N.S. today for six teens accused of sharing intimate images of up to 20 underaged girls without consent.— Hit and run trial resumes in Edmonton for MLA Derek Fildebrandt, who left the UCP to sit as an independent.— Next appearance for accused in the Chilliwack Cattle Sales case, where three farm workers were charged with animal cruelty.last_img read more

Aurora Cannabis shares down after it misses own Q4 revenue guidance

EDMONTON — Shares of Aurora Cannabis were down about nine per cent after the pot producer’s fourth-quarter revenues fell short of its own guidance and it reported a $2.2-million loss.The Edmonton-based company’s stock was at $7.75 in late morning trading, down 8.9 per cent from its previous close of $8.51.Aurora reported $98.9 million in net revenues for the quarter ended June 30, up from $19.1 million a year ago but lower than the range of between $100 million and $107 million predicted in company estimates released last month.The cannabis company also reported an adjusted loss before interest, taxes and depreciation of $11.7 million, an improvement from a loss of $36.6 million in the third quarter.Company executives told analysts Thursday that while they would have liked to reach positive EBITDA, one major constraining factor was the slow rollout of retail stores, particularly in Ontario — Canada’s biggest market for pot.Chief financial officer Glen Ibbott said the company is “at the mercy” of the retail rollout, and while Ontario has more stores in the pipeline, the province should be licensing “hundreds” of new outlets.

Via Rail reports lower secondquarter net income revenue from a year ago

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Via Rail reports lower second-quarter net income, revenue from a year ago MONTREAL – Via Rail saw its second-quarter net income slip as revenue declined and operating expenses rose.The arms-length Crown corporation reported a profit of $9.6 million, down from $11.9 million a year ago.Revenue for the quarter was $66.2 million, compared to $68.1 million during the same period last year. Total passenger revenues were $61.1 million, down from $63.5 million a year ago.Meanwhile, operating expenses grew to $154 million from $141.8 million previously, primarily due to higher depreciation costs related to its capital investment program.The number of miles travelled by all passengers grew by four per cent to 208 million from 200 million. But that was offset by higher operations funding, which went up to 38.4 cents per passenger mile, compared to 36 cents during the same quarter last year.Via operates intercity, regional and transcontinental trains over a 12,500-kilometre route network across Canada. by The Canadian Press Posted Aug 30, 2013 6:12 pm MDT read more

UN launches pocketbook on nutrition ahead of major conference in Rome

Rome Declaration on Nutrition More than 100 ministers and representatives from civil society will gather 19-21, November at FAO Headquarters in Rome for ICN2, where they will adopt the Rome Declaration on Nutrition and a 60-point Framework of Action meant to guide national policy commitments. In addition, UN Radio, which is on the scene in Rome as preparations for the Conference get under way, reports that civil society groups working on food and nutrition related issues have kicked off a two – day meeting to consider what is at stake in their respective countries and regions.They are also expected to study outcome documents to be endorsed at the conference, which will reportedly bind countries to take ten steps to translate their commitments for nutrition into action. Their discussions are expected to feed into the work of the Conference. Co-organized with the UN World Health Organization (WHO), ICN2 will bring together relevant ministries, agencies, and organizations to identify priorities for enhanced international cooperation on nutrition.According to FAO, the global economy, food systems and the nutritional status of populations have changed significantly since the first global conference on nutrition in 1992. The agency says a new policy framework and more appropriate responses are needed, with now more than half the world’s population affected by malnutrition. Working together for better nutrition Food and Nutrition in Numbers– a pocket-seized compendium dedicated to the state of nutrition worldwide – offers data highlighting trends on micronutrient deficiencies, obesity and non-communicable diseases from 1990 to the present.“The pocketbook is a useful reference for policy makers, as it provides an overview of various aspects of nutrition at country, regional and global levels,” Josef Schmidhuber, Deputy Director of FAO’s Statistics Divisionsaidin a statement. The pocketbook also offers indicators on the links between nutrition, health and the environment. Readers, who can access the little book on their mobile devices through an app, can find data on food prices, food consumption, agriculture-related carbon emissions and land use, among others. Small, pocket-sized print versions will be distributed to delegations attending ICN2 so that they may compare country data during the conference and inform policy-makers at home. “A country that does not pay attention to the nutrition of its citizens will pay dearly in health costs and loss of productivity and this can significantly reduce its economic development,” Anna Lartey, Director of FAO’s Nutrition Division warned today ahead of the Conference. The pocketbook data shows that while progress has been made in reducing the percentage of hungry people globally, some two billion people are still micronutrient deficient –meaning they lack the vitamins and minerals needed to lead healthy and production lives. But there has been an increase in food waste and obesity globally, which means the world produces far more food than it needs, leaving deep resource footprints, in terms of land and water use, carbon emissions, environmental degradation and other aspects of food production. “We live in a world of plenty and it’s remarkable how much more food agriculture has produced over the past decades,” added Schmidhuber. “But what is equally remarkable is that in this world of plenty, we still have 800 million who don’t consume enough calories and 2 billion who don’t eat well – this is why this conference is so important,” he added.

Tulane Safety Devon Walker Suffers Serious Spine Fracture

Tulane safety Devon Walker was seriously injured during Tulsa’s 45-10 victory over Tulane, with reports indicating that Walker actually stopped breathing on the field and needed CPR and a tracheotomy.Reports later indicated that Walker suffered a spine fracture after taking a blow to the head delivered by a teammate as they both attempted to make a tackle right before halftime of Saturday’s game against Tulsa in H.A. Chapman Stadium. After Walker was taken to St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa, he was diagnosed with a cervical spine fracture and edema (swelling) in his spinal cord. Doctors say Walker will need spinal surgery and it’s not clear whether the injury has caused any paralysis.But Tulane team Dr. Buddy Savoie seemed intent on downplaying the drama of the on field emergency. He said drama said Walker never lost consciousness and his life was never in danger, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.“I think it went as well as it could go,” Savoie said. “There are always concerns about stability, but he is stable right now. He was stable when we transported him. I do not think based on the information we have that his life was ever in danger.”Some sideline media reported seeing medical staff giving chest compressions consistent with CPR, and the Golden Hurricane’s trainer reportedly said Walker had a collapsed lung in addition to the broken neck.The Tulsa World reported: “Medical personnel administered CPR as Walker was motionless at the north end of the field.”Savoie did not say whether Walker had feeling or the ability to move his extremities. He did not respond to text messages from the Times-Picayune looking for more detail.In the press conference, he did say Walker’s spine was swollen, that Walker was in traction (immobilized) and would need surgery in the next day or so.“It was just a difficult day, probably the most difficult day ever,” Tulane first-year coach Curtis Johnson said after the game. “Just seeing one of our guys, one of our family members out on the ground, go in an ambulance. … I don’t know they could focus on what they are doing. … I thought about saying hey, let’s just not doing anything else. Let’s just get on the road and go and see Devon.”“The current plan is for him to have surgery in the next one to two days,” the Tulane athletic department released in a statement. “He is being treated by specialists. The Tulsa physicians did a great job taking care of Devon.”Walker is a hard worker in the classroom as well as on the field, where he made the team as a walk-on. Walker is a cell and molecular biology major with designs on becoming a pharmacist like his sister, Yolan Bender. read more

Manchester City youngster jailed for crash that killed brother and sister

first_imgA MANCHESTER CITY youth player broke down in tears today as he was jailed for 16 months for killing a brother and sister while speeding in his Mercedes in central Manchester.A Manchester court heard that 18-year-old Courtney Meppen-Walter was driving at nearly double the speed limit of 30 miles per hour when he hit a car carrying Kulwant Singh, 32, and his 37-year-old sister, Ravel Kaur. Both siblings, who hailed from the Manchester area, were killed, while Ms Kaur’s two sons, aged 16 and 17, were injured.Meppen-Walter, who was also the captain of England’s under-18 side, will serve half his sentence in custody but may be released earlier and obliged to wear an electronic tag. The judge also banned him from driving for three years and ordered the sale of the car, with the proceeds to go to the injured passengers.Meppen-Walter’s lawyer, Gwyn Lewis, said his client was “truly sorry” for what he had done.“To begin, it has to be said this type of case is one that should always be described as tragic,” Lewis said. “Tragic of course for the family, those who lost loved ones and were very badly injured. But also it’s a tragedy for the defendant.“He was only just 18. He became involved in a matter that only took a few seconds that will remain with him for the rest of his life. The incident was over in a flash. He stayed at the scene and tried to assist, but it was already too late.”- © AFP, 2013France lock Pascal Pape to miss Dublin trip, rest of 6 NationsArsenal and Chelsea up in arms over Paddy Power’s latest ad campaignlast_img read more

Police care for very well behaved baby bear

first_imgPOLICE IN OREGON in the US held an unlikely suspect overnight Thursday: an adorable black bear cub.Myrtle Creek Police Chief Don Brown says a teen boy and his parents dropped off the cub in a large plastic storage bin at the police station after finding the small animal whimpering in the bushes outside his house on the outskirts of town.He told police the bear’s mother was nowhere in sight.Still, Brown said it was dangerous for the teen to pick up the cub, because the mother bear could have spotted him and attacked. Adult female black bears can weigh up to 300 pounds.The 12-pound cub was “very well behaved” while spending the night at the station, Brown said.Police and Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife officials looked for the cub’s mother the next day using a device that mimics a cub distress call, but couldn’t find her.The orphaned cub is now at the University of Oregon receiving a veterinary checkup. Fish and Wildlife officials said the cub is a female and is in generally good health, other than being underweight.They said the cub will be placed at a zoo, but they didn’t yet know which one.Oregon is home to 25,000 to 30,000 black bears. Myrtle Creek, 90 miles south of Eugene, has an abundance of wildlife, the police chief said. Residents often call authorities about bear and cougar sightings.“We’ve had two baby rattlesnakes brought into the station, but nobody has brought in a bear in the last nine years I’ve been here,” Brown said.Wildlife officials say they do not know what happened to the cub’s mother. Spring bear hunting season kicked off 1 April in Oregon, but it’s illegal to kill sows with cubs that are less than a year old.Officials say no dead bear has been found in the area, no hunter has reported killing one, and there have been no reports of a bear being hit by a car.This hamster stuffing its face with a tiny pizza is your new spirit animallast_img read more

BlackBerry Storm 3 has its specs leaked

first_imgResearch in Motion‘s third generation update to their touchscreen BlackBerry, the BlackBerry Storm, hasn”t been officially announced by anyone yet… but that’s never stopped the gadget rumor mill from churning out a list of specs, and the latest report leaks most of them.So what awaits the BlackBerry Storm 3? For one, a better camera: while initial reports pegged it at 5MP, the current module appears to be 8MP, with fixed-focus and a dual-LED flash.Memory-wise, everything’s pretty typical: the BlackBerry Storm will start with 8GB of onboard flash storage, and double that for a premium. You also have a microSD card slot to load data onto.As far as silicon is concerned, the BlackBerry Storm 3 will boast a 1GHz processor of unknown provenance, 1GB of ROM and 512MB of RAM. The optical trackpad makes a return from the Storm 2, and the display is being tipped as a 3.7-inch capacitive touchscreen affair, its sixteen million colors lit up by AMOLED technology.Then throw in the usual odds and ends: 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth. Finally, a beefy battery allows for 9 hours of talk time and 432 hours of standby.Not shabby… but given the lackluster response RIM has gotten with its Storm line before, we wouldn’t be surprised if the rumor that the Storm 3 would never see the light of day turned out to be true. Let’s hope if it does it runs the Playbook’s swank new OS instead of OS 6.Read more at Into Mobilelast_img read more

Ketchikan Borough moves forward with commercial pot

first_imgVoters approved the legal the production, sale and use of marijuana for Alaskans over 21 years old in the November election. (Creative Commons photo by Brett Levin)Pot was the main topic of conversation during Monday’s meeting of the Ketchikan Gateway Borough Assembly, as it considered an ordinance to establish regulations for a commercial marijuana industry.There was public comment for and against allowing commercial marijuana within the borough. Those speaking against it expressed concern about the dangers associated with marijuana, such as impaired driving. Terrance Robbins of the Ketchikan Wellness Coalition also cited studies that he says show the damage caused by high-potency marijuana.“They were able to measure people who either don’t use marijuana or haven’t used marijuana recently, compared that to people who use very lightly and don’t use high-potency marijuana, and people who use high-potency marijuana, and it was significant the amount of brain damage these people were having,” he said.Robbins says stores he’s visited in other states where pot is legal sell mainly high-potency pot. Robbins has advocated for a ban on retail marijuana in Ketchikan. Short of that, he asked for more stringent regulations and a public process for any proposed store.Eric Muench spoke in favor of allowing commercial pot in Ketchikan. He says the borough shouldn’t adopt regulations that make it impossible for a retail establishment to open.“The will of our local voters must be kept uppermost,” he said. “Some who originally opposed legalization are now trying to regulate it right back into its previous underground status, which will surely be the result of unnecessarily stringent and impossible to enforce rules.”Assembly members acknowledged the concerns of people who oppose commercial establishments, but most said it’s better to have it regulated.“Prohibition didn’t work for alcohol and I don’t think it’s working for marijuana, either,” said Assembly Member Bill Rotecki. “I would rather see things aboveground, so we know what’s going on.”The Assembly voted unanimously to introduce the ordinance. It will come back for a second reading at the next Assembly meeting. If adopted, the ordinance will establish zones for different kinds of marijuana businesses, and buffers around schools, residential neighborhoods and other areas. Marijuana businesses would be restricted within those buffers.Also Monday, the Borough Assembly introduced two related ordinances. The first establishes a local review process for state-issued marijuana license applications; the second includes regulations for any marijuana business that might open within the borough. Among those regulations is a provision that bans marijuana businesses on submerged lands or floating vessels.Speaking of bans, last week, the Ketchikan City Council voted to ban all commercial marijuana operations within city limits. There was criticism from the public about the Council’s vote, because the item on the agenda had been listed as a discussion item rather than an action item, and the vote likely will be reconsidered.Even without reconsideration, however, Borough Planning Director Chris French says the City Council’s action wouldn’t be final until it considered an ordinance and held a public hearing.Also Monday, the Assembly voted 5-2 in favor of a resolution that states the borough will not annex any areas without a request from residents or property owners within that area. The motion is meant to reassure Prince of Wales Island residents that the borough does not intend to annex that island. Assembly Members Glen Thompson and Alan Bailey voted no.The Assembly also voted 4-3 to narrowly approve the borough’s agreement with the City of Ketchikan to provide about $390,000 for the city-run public library. Assembly Members Mike Painter, John Harrington and Thompson voted no.Check out the borough planning department online for maps of the buffer zones and more details about state and local regulations for commercial pot.last_img read more

Katie Holmes keeping Suri Cruise away from Jamie Foxx for this shocking

first_imgKatie Holmes and Suri Cruise speak at Z100’s Jingle Ball 2017 on December 8, 2017 in New York CityTheo Wargo/Getty Images for iHeartMediaKatie Holmes and Jamie Foxx have been allegedly in a secret relationship from a very long time. It was earlier speculated that the rumored couple has parted ways but as per the latest update, these two are taking everything very slowly — which means that they both do not want to disrupt their respective families because of it.From her marriage with Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes has a daughter Suri Cruise. We have never seen the teenager hanging out with her mother’s alleged boyfriend. It was recently speculated that Jamie has an amazing relationship with Suri. An alleged insider stated that Katie’s daughter Suri loves Jamie as he makes her laugh and since he himself has daughters, he knows pretty well how to talk with girls about their private lives.In addition to this, it was stated that Katie is pretty close to Jamie’s daughters as well and when Jamie is not in town, she has dinner with them. However, a recent report Us Weekly suggests that Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx are enjoying their courtship and do not wish to hamper their respective lives.”They keep it private and protect it for the most part because they don’t want to disrupt either of their families,” an alleged source revealed to the magazine. “Jamie rarely has her over his house and they mostly hang out separately from their kids.” Jamie Foxx and Katie HolmesGetty Images”Katie and Jamie have great chemistry and a romantic relationship,” the source added.During the Oscars charity gala, it was revealed that Jamie Foxx referred to himself as a “single” guy, which made many to think that Jamie and Katie have parted ways. But if the recent reports are to believe then everything is going great between these two and they just do not want to rush into anything that will jeopardize their long-term affair.That being said, both Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx have never publicly acknowledged their relationship with each other. Yes, these two were photographed together on multiple times in recent years but they both have chosen to stay quiet when it comes to their relationship. Even before the pictures surfaced, these two and their respective reps have dismissed all the news about their alleged relationship.last_img read more

VIDEO Virgin Galactic tested a prototype of its rocket powered space tourism

first_imgYesterday over the Mojave Desert, Virgin Galactic conducted the first test flight for it’s rocket powered space plane VSS Unity, since a first 2014 test tragically ended in a mid-flight breakup that killed the pilots.The test plane was a prototype of what Virgin hopes will eventually develop into a reliable form of of a future space tourism industry that will take commercial passengers to the lower reaches of space (around 16 miles up) before returning to Earth.Functionally, the plane is towed by a larger plane to 46,500 feet and then released. Once released, the Unity’s rocket kicks in and propels the craft to the outer reaches of the atmosphere.This is still a long way from being a commercially viable means of transportation, but after seeing these views it’s hard to believe people won’t be lining up around the block once it’s ready to go.last_img read more

The mandarin and orange sector in Northeastern Arg

first_img The mandarin and orange sector in Northeastern Argentina is expecting exports to drop sharply this year due to lower competitivity resulting from the government’s economic policies, according to an industry representative.Legislation including the reinstatement of an export tax and reduction of export rebates will contribute to exports being around half last year’s level, said Mariano Caprarulo, executive director of the Citrus Growers’ Association of Northeastern Argentina.”The reality is that for a while now, both mandarins and oranges from Northeastern Argentina have been really affected by high costs, and because of that we are not going to surpass 40,000 metric tons (MT) in exports this year,” Caprarulo said, adding that the majority would be made up of mandarins.
