As a person, he has this fire in him – everything is done to the full,” Finland international Toivo told the Manchester Evening News.”I think he is great at creating fighting spirit in the team and encouraging players to be the best they can be. He has a lot of knowledge about football and understands the game really well.”There was a lot of concentration on first touches and observing the play with Mark in training: where and how you took the first touch. He played as a midfielder when he was a player and he often said ‘play what you see’. By that, he also meant to keep it simple and to not try difficult stuff.”He was really like a friend. He’s a guy who loves to tell stories and jokes and loves to make people laugh and play pranks.” last_img read more

first_img(Barbara Suggashie, left, and her husband Clarence Suggashie hold the picture of their deceased daughter Kanina Sue Turtle who died by suicide Oct. 29, 2016. APTN file photo)Kenneth JacksonAPTN NewsWhen Barbara Suggashie first saw the video of her daughter’s suicide she only watched the first few minutes.Then she shut it off.She wanted to see if her daughter said goodbye.“But she never said anything,” said Suggashie.Kanina Sue Turtle was 15 when she died Oct. 29, 2016.That’s nearly 730 days ago and Suggashie, like any parent, has often wondered what her daughter was thinking at the time.Kanina did have something to say to her family.She wrote letters to them.But no one told the family.“No one said anything,” said Suggashie on the telephone over the weekend from her home in Poplar Hill near the Ontario and Manitoba border.Not the Ontario Provincial Police that investigated Kanina’s death in Sioux Lookout, Ont.Not Tikinagan Child and Family Services that owned and operated the foster home, and who took Kanina from her parents 10 times throughout her life for safety concerns.And not the Ontario coroner’s office.The family didn’t learn of Kanina’s last words until last month.That’s when a report, commissioned by Chief Coroner Dr. Dirk Huyer, was released on the deaths of 12 kids in child protective services between 2014 and 2017.It’s 86 pages looking at systemic issues that are failing the most vulnerable children in the province. Each of the 12 children had about one page each dedicated to them.In Kanina’s section there is a line that Suggashie hasn’t been able to forget: “Suicide notes were left for various family members…”It came as a shock.Why hadn’t anyone told her?Kanina, left, with her mother, Barbara, several months before her death. Facebook photo.But then again Suggashie was used to things being kept from her after her daughter’s death.For instance, the actual video of Kanina’s suicide was kept from the family for about nine months.During that time Suggashie didn’t believe it was suicide.Then police returned Kanina’s iPod in the summer of 2017 right around the same time the family’s access to information request for Kanina’s police report, and officer’s notes, arrived.Kanina filmed her death on the device and police officer notes mention the video. It’s about an hour and has been reviewed by APTN, as previously reported.The video shows Kanina was left alone for 45 minutes before the a worker in the home checked on her.It was far too late by then as she had been motionless for approximately 40 minutes.Suggashie said she has asked Tikinagan why her daughter was left alone when the agency knew she was suicidal and had been in the hospital multiple times in the days before her death for self-harming.When the investigating coroner did the autopsy hundreds of new cuts were all over her body.“I don’t understand Tikinagan. They are hiding something,” she has said over and over since APTN first broke the news of the video Feb. 28.She also never had the coroner’s death investigation report until late this summer when the family hired a lawyer to find out what happened. The lawyer, Cara Valiquette based in Bracebridge, Ont., was able to get some of Kanina’s records, including her counsellor notes.Those records show Kanina missed every appointment with her counsellor in the five days before her death. Her counsellor, Violet Tuesday in Sioux Lookout, also noted she had difficulty reaching Tikinagan during those five days.In depth: Love and death in child welfare: Kanina Sue Turtle’s last daysThe death investigation report was completed by regional coroner, Michael Wilson, over a year after Kanina’s death because no one had had done it by then, as Wilson mentions. Wilson also says in the report it does not appear anything could have stopped Kanina from killing herself.Wilson was also involved much earlier in the investigation into Kanina’s death. Immediately after her death, the OPP asked the coroner’s office to pay for specialized software that would allow the police to remove the video from Kanina’s iPod and keep as evidence, as the device had timed out and locked police out.Wilson wouldn’t pay the costs and said the family could if they wanted the device back. Kanina’s family would guess her password to get into the phone after police returned it.APTN contacted Huyer by email Monday asking who has Kanina’s suicide letters.“I am away from the office for two days so I am not able to answer until later this week as I have to check with others,” wrote Huyer Monday night. “I would be happy to respond to the family with any questions they have.”Huyer was in Sioux Lookout for a media conference over the cold case involving Audrey Anderson. That’s also where Tikinagan’s headquarters is located.He emailed again Tuesday evening saying he has made several inquires to find out about the letters.“You and the family have raised a question to me which I will make best efforts to find the answers in as timely a manner that I can,” he said. “As you are aware I do not have direct knowledge of all investigations (17,000) in the province each year.  I was not the investigating coroner in this case.”Tikinagan declined to comment when asked why the letters have been kept from the family or when they will be delivered.“Tikinagan will not be commenting on any matter relating to Kanina Turtle, as there is litigation before the Courts,” said Tikinagan’s lawyer, Catherine Beamish.Kanina’s family sued Tikinagan for $5.9 million over her death last month.After learning of the letters Suggashie and her husband, Clarence Suggashie, said they asked Tikinagan for the letters but never got a response.“They didn’t say anything,” said Clarence.He said he now goes to the Northern Store asking if they have mail hoping the letters are there.They are hoping it’s just a mistake someone will correct.“Every day we check the mail,” said Clarence. “Nothing.”kjackson@aptn.calast_img read more

first_imgCALGARY – The association that represents Canadian oil and gas drilling companies says it expects “muted stability” for the industry in 2018 despite recent strengthening in oil prices.The Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors is calling for 6,138 wells to be drilled in its 2018 forecast, an increase of just 107 from the number expected to be drilled this year.It says the Canadian rig fleet is expected to shrink by 19 to a total of 615 next year as drilling contractors continue to struggle to find capital needed to keep older equipment running and reinvest in replacement rigs.Last month, the Petroleum Services Association of Canada said it also expects a slight recovery in drilling in Canada in 2018 versus this year but the count will still be 30 per cent lower than in 2014 when oil prices peaked at more than US$100 per barrel.New York-traded crude closed at US$56.42 per barrel on Monday, up from lows of less than US$43 in June.Alberta government-owned lender ATB Financial said Monday the energy sector has “stabilized” and will enjoy a modest rebound in activity next year, helping fuel 3.9 per cent provincial economic growth.last_img read more

JOHN, B.C. – When it came to the weather in Fort St. John, the month of September was considered to be quite on average.According to Environment Canada Meteorologist, Doug Lindquist, Fort St. John’s weather was right on average during September when it came to temperature and precipitation.Lindquist says the average temperature during September was 10.1°C, which hit right on the mark to the expected average. The same can be said for the amount of precipitation during September, as Fort St. John received a total of 43 mm compared to the average of 45 mm.As for what to expect for the month of October, Lindquist says the outlook is showing uncertainty and is fluctuating so much that it is hard to determine if it will be above or below the seasonal average.This weekend, Environment Canada is calling for mostly sunny with temperatures hovering around 13°C.last_img read more

first_imgGeneva: Climate change may threaten the survival of of marine mammals such as dolphins, and have more far-reaching consequences for their conservation than previously thought, according to a study. In early 2011, a heatwave caused the water temperatures to rise to more than four degrees above the annual average, said researchers from the University of Zurich (UZH) in Switzerland. The extended period caused a substantial loss of seagrass, which drives the Shark Bay ecosystem, a UNESCO world heritage site in Western Australia. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USResearchers from UZH have now investigated how this environmental damage has affected survival and reproduction of dolphins. They used long-term data on hundreds of animals collected over a ten-year period from 2007 to 2017. Their analyses revealed that the dolphins’ survival rate had fallen by 12 per cent following the heatwave of 2011. Moreover, female dolphins were giving birth to fewer calves — a phenomenon that lasted at least until 2017, researchers said. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential polls”The extent of the negative influence of the heatwave surprised us,” said Sonja Wild, a former PhD candidate at the University of Leeds in the UK. “It is particularly unusual that the reproductive success of females appears to have not returned to normal levels, even after six years,” Wild said in a statement. There are several possible explanations for this phenomenon, for instance neglect of calves, increased newborn mortality, delayed sexual maturity or a combination thereof, but researchers have not yet been able to investigate them in detail. Interestingly, the heatwave did not have the same effect on all dolphin groups, researchers said. Dolphins that use sponges as tools — a socially learned foraging technique that helps dolphins to locate food in deep water — were not as badly affected as those that do not use this technique. “Nevertheless, our work raises concerns that such sudden events might have quite negative long-term effects even in groups of marine mammals that are known to adapt usually well to novel environmental conditions,” said Wild. The study shows for the first time that marine heatwaves not only affect organisms at lower levels of the food chain, but also might have considerable long-term consequences for the animals at the top, such as dolphins. “Marine heatwaves are likely to occur more frequently in the future due to climate change,” said study leader Michael Krutzen, professor at the Department of Anthropology at UZH. “This is worrying not only for the long-term prospects of marine mammal populations, but also for the entire oceanic ecosystems,” Krutzen said.last_img read more

first_imgLiving with a smoker after age 20 is associated with a 15 per cent greater risk of developing high blood pressure, warn researchers, adding that avoiding smoky environments can reduce the risk of hypertension. Passive smoking at home or work was linked with a 13 per cent increased risk of hypertension. Exposure to passive smoking for 10 years or more was related to a 17 per cent increased risk of hypertension and men and women were equally affected, said the researchers at “EuroHeartCare 2019″, a scientific congress of the European Society of Cardiology, in Milan, Italy on Friday. Also Read – The Puja carnival”Avoid exposure to secondhand smoke regardless of whether the smoker is still in the room,” said study author Professor Byung Jin Kim from Sungkyunkwan University, Seoul, Korea. “Our study in non-smokers shows that the risk of high blood pressure (hypertension) is higher with longer duration of passive smoking – but even the lowest amounts are dangerous,” Kim added. This is the first large study to assess the association between secondhand smoke and hypertension in never-smokers verified by urinary levels of cotinine, the principal metabolite of nicotine. Also Read – Wave City brings special offers this NavratraIt included 131,739 never-smokers, one-third men, and an average age of 35 years. Participants with hypertension were significantly more likely to be exposed to secondhand smoke at home or work (27.9 per cent) than those with normal blood pressure (22.6 per cent). Hypertension was significantly more common in people exposed to passive smoke at home or work (7.2 per cent) compared to no exposure (5.5 per cent). “The results suggest that it is necessary to keep completely away from secondhand smoke, not just reduce exposure, to protect against hypertension,” said Professor Kim.last_img read more

It was that all too familiar feeling. After a dominant 34-25 scoreline heading into the break, the question lingering in the back of every Buckeye fan’s head was slowly becoming a reality – could they really lose this game? I wanted to believe I went colorblind, or that Ohio State started the half wearing Kansas’ jerseys as an early April Fool’s prank, but that wasn’t the case. A common sequence transpired for the next 20 minutes. Kansas responded, breaking hearts in Columbus, eliminating the Buckeyes from the Final Four, 64-62. So there is a new question for Buckeye fans – what could be next for the OSU men’s basketball team? It can be expected that changes will be made when a team travels the distance OSU did in the tournament. Between coaches wanting to find a new home and players graduating or entering the next level of competition, it is a common chain of events. The question can be summarized as a big “what if?” but a prediction is necessary with all the talent surrounding the team. Former guard William Buford will be the only player leaving the roster due to his senior status. Forward Evan Ravenel and guard Alex Rogers will be the only seniors on the roster beginning next year. The leading scorer, former sophomore forward Jared Sullinger, is officially out. The sophomore announced his departure on Wednesday, opening up the center position for the Buckeyes. Satch Sullinger, Jared Sullinger’s father, weighed in on the topic to WBNS-10TV’s ‘Wall to Wall Sports’ following the loss on Saturday: “The one question that I’ll have for Jared is, at this point, coming back, what do you have to prove?” The All-American didn’t have much more to prove. Sullinger led the team in points and rebounds for the past two years. If health was a major concern, it was no surprise that we saw the last game Sullinger plays in the scarlet and gray. Sophomore forward Deshaun Thomas will have until April 10 to make his decision on entering the NBA Draft, according to the NCAA. With Buford and Sullinger gone, and the possibility of Thomas joining them, there will be a void that needs to be filled. When it comes down to it, the Buckeyes are young. Freshman forward Sam Thompson and sophomore guard Jordan Sibert are prepared to take the two open positions. Thompson played in each game this season and has impressive athleticism and ball handling. On the other hand, Sibert appeared in 24 games this season, but offers good size alongside sophomore guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. Bearing in mind the departure from Sullinger, Ravenel would be a solid replacement. Ravenel was the only other player to start for the Buckeyes this season providing plenty of minutes off the bench during the tournament as well, but don’t be for certain he is the answer. Enter freshman center Amir Williams. The soon-to-be-sophomore stands in at 6-foot-11. Sitting behind Sullinger, he didn’t see much action this season, but Buckeye fans took notice when he stepped in against Syracuse in the Elite Eight. With the youth on the bench and the talent to fill the void; the team should be able to make another strong push into the tournament. read more
