first_imgSASKATOON – A Saskatchewan woman says she lost a finger after her ring got caught on a waterslide at one of the largest malls in North America.Claire Clark was celebrating her granddaughter’s third birthday at West Edmonton Mall’s water park on Aug. 5 when Clark decided to take a ride on a slide called the Corkscrew.She said she was grabbing onto a thin piece of mesh and foam padding at the top to push herself down when she got snagged.“My ring caught on that thing that I grabbed and it ripped off my finger, and my finger went with it,” Clark said. “It was awful.”Clark said the skin on her right ring finger was torn at the first knuckle and there was only bone on the rest of the finger.Clark said she remembers going down the slide and holding her hand so that she wouldn’t get blood everywhere. She lifted it to make sure it didn’t go under the water.“Then I said to my husband, ‘We have to go get first aid. Look at my finger.’ And so I showed him my finger and I thought he was going to pass out because it’s kind of ugly.”Clark’s 28-year-old daughter found the finger and pointed it out to a lifeguard, who dove into the pool to retrieve it and the ring.A plastic surgeon at the University of Alberta hospital told Clark that there was nothing left to sew the finger back into and it had to be amputated. The surgeon did the procedure that day and Clark has six millimetres of her finger left.Clark, who has three children and five grandchildren, said her finger hurt a little bit after it happened, but not very much. She gets her stitches out on Monday.West Edmonton Mall said it was unable to comment on what happened because of an internal investigation.Clark wants the mall to advise people who are wearing jewelry to take it off before they go down the waterslides.She was working again at her job as a mobile mortgage specialist for RBC the same night she lost her finger and plans on seeing an occupational and physical therapist.She said she’ll never go to a water park again.“I didn’t lose my life. So I’m happy about that,” Clark said.“I’ll have tears once in awhile and I’ll wish I could get my finger back sometimes, but I don’t think I ever will.”— By Ryan McKenna in Regina.

first_imgVICTORIA — Business leaders say they’re concerned the British Columbia government’s budget pays too little attention to the potential impacts of a slowing global economy and a shifting housing market.B.C. Business Council president Greg D’Avignon says finance Minister Carole James is banking on robust economic growth to fund long-term social and environment programs amounting to $2 billion over the next three years.He says the council, which represents many of the largest employers in the province, credits the government for the initiatives that support families and environment programs, but the government is taking business for granted in a darkening economy. Real estate developer Jason Turcotte says the government depends on tax revenue from home sales to help fund its programs, but the budget hinders new property developments which create that wealth.James says B.C. is forecast to lead Canada in economic growth for the next two years and her budget has set aside more than $2.6 billion in contingency and allowance funds in the event of a downturn.Opposition Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson says the budget does nothing to stimulate the economy.

One third of the Asian nation’s population leads nomadic lives and depend entirely on livestock for a living. Urgent assistance of $6 million is needed over the next two or three months to help herders make it through to spring, a rapid needs assessment conducted by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) found.Locally known as dzud, the extreme cold experienced in Mongolia – roughly the size of Western Europe – followed a very dry and long summer and fall, during which insufficient livestock feed was produced to provide to the animals for the winter months.If current conditions continue, the Government predicts that losses could reach 3-4 million head of livestock by spring. So far, it is estimated that economic losses have topped $60 million.Out of Mongolia’s 21 provinces, 14 are considered to have been seriously affected, with tens of thousands of families owning up to 300 head of livestock having lost over half their herds. Their cash income is plummeting and they face soaring fodder prices.If aid does not reach the country soon, spreading poverty will lead to mass migration to urban areas later this year, FAO warned.The agency’s Animal Production and Health Commission for Asia and the Pacific has provided 5,000 doses of medicinal food supplements for dairy cows, pregnant heifers and young bulls, and is also prepared to assist in disaster preparedness and risk reduction plans. 2 February 2010More than 20,000 families are at the risk of going hungry, as temperatures reaching as low as -50 degrees centrigrade have killed nearly two million head of livestock in Mongolia, the United Nations agriculture agency reported today. read more

A muslim convert known as Jihadi Jack has said he feels guilty about his parents’ conviction of funding terrorism after they sent him cash.Jack Letts, 23, left his middle-class home in Oxford in 2014 and became one of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’s (Isil) most notorious recruits before he was captured.  He is currently incarcerated in a jail run by Kurdish authorities in Northern Syria, but apologised to his parents and said he wants to return to the UK.He told Sky News: “I feel guilty because I’m the reason they are going through this.“They didn’t do anything wrong. They sent me money to leave. It’s not like they were funding some sort of terrorist activity.”Jack’s parents, Sally Lane and John Letts, were spared jail at the Old Bailey on Friday, when they were handed a sentence of 15 months, suspended for a year, for funding terrorism over a payment of £223 to a man in Lebanon in 2015 at Jack’s request. John Letts and Sally Lane, the parents of a Muslim convert dubbed Jihadi Jack After their sentencing, Ms Lane and Mr Letts spoke of their son’s obsessive approach to his Muslim faith, saying he was waking in the middle of the night to perfect his prayer, and scared that he would “go to hell” if he got it wrong.The former Cherwell School student was diagnosed with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) when he was a teenager, and turned to prayer as one of his OCD rituals.John Letts told the Mail on Sunday: “He was terrified that if he got anything wrong and didn’t start all over again he would go to hell.“He’d wake in the middle of the night for the pre-dawn prayer, but where that might take most Muslims a few minutes, he’d be up from 3am to 5am washing, praying, trying to get it right. He’d fall asleep in school and get into trouble.“I’m convinced this made him vulnerable to manipulation.”They also committed their continued support to their son, with Mr Letts adding:  “A father does not give up on his son, and I’ll never give up on Jack.” Letts added: “I was surprised they were convicted. They are definitely not Islamic fundamentalists. They are not even Muslims.“It’s two atheists convicted for Islamic terrorism – it doesn’t make much sense.”He said, although it seems unlikely, he would “love to go home”  and said he had “no intention of blowing [British people] up.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

first_img WAITERS AT A cheap and cheerful restaurant in central France have been worked off their feet since the eatery earned a coveted Michelin star by mistake, the daily Le Parisien reported Friday.“We’re swamped,” Veronique Jacquet, who runs the Bouche a Oreille (Word of Mouth) bar-restaurant in the town of Bourges, told the paper.“I don’t have much space and there are only four waiters,” said Jacquet, known as Vero to the regulars who pay €12.50 for homemade beef bourguignon, scarfing it down over red-and-white polkadot tablecloths.Guide Michelin France, which published its 2017 version last Thursday, mistook Jacquet’s place for another restaurant of the same name.It took nearly a week to correct the error on its website.“We apologised to the two establishments and we are sorry to have misled our clients,” the guide’s Claire Dorland-Clauzel told Le Parisien.The mistake showed up only on the website, and not in the iconic red print version or on the mobile app of the foodie bible that can make or break aspiring top chefs with its system of awarding up to three stars to the finest restaurants.The other Bouche a Oreille is 180 km to the north, in Boutervilliers near Paris, with carpeted floors, fancy linen tablecloths and serves the likes of lobster flan, calf’s brain and a crunchy pear and chocolate concoction for dessert, complete with champagne, for €48.Chef Aymeric Dreux took the mistake in stride. “It was a little boo-boo that caused no harm and was corrected.”Dreux, who first earned the star in 2015, added: “I called (Jacquet) in Bourges. The whole thing made us laugh.”Jacquet’s cook Penelope Salmon, asked whether she ever dreamed of earning a Michelin star, said: “No, not at all. I cook with my heart.”© – AFP 2017Read: These five food businesses were served with closure orders last month >Read: Tayto manufacturer fined €2,000 under food safety laws > 46,999 Views Saturday 18 Feb 2017, 11:12 AM By AFP Short URL 26 Comments Homemade beef bourguignon is one of the local’s specialties.

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Greek Australian archaeologist Parry Kostocoglou believes he could have found Australia’s first currency exchange on the site of the city’s new Myers store. The Hobart archaeological consultant and his team have found coins and other artefacts more than 200-years-old at a dig on the CBD site, which will be redeveloped after fire destroyed the old store in 2007. “What’s really cool about the coins is that a lot of them are from overseas, they’re not just English coins,” he told AAP. “There’s Indian coins, there might be a Mexican silver dollar there and other coins that as yet haven’t been cleaned up, but they don’t look English.” A dig was ordered before building started because the site has been developed five times since white settlement in 1804. Convict period stoneware bottles, plates from China and gun flints from America are among the discoveries, but it’s the coins that could be the important find. “What that means is basically troops and people that came out on the first fleet (to Tasmania) were asked to empty their pockets and they collectivised the money and created a sort of ad hoc currency system because there was no existing system of trade,” Mr Kostoglou said. “One rupee equalled two Mexican silver dollars which equalled four shillings, so once they had that standard established all these coins were thrown in.” He says the find could be unique because the only other Australian colony rivalling Hobart in age, Sydney, was more carefully planned. “This one was hurriedly organised to stop the French getting their hooks into Van Diemen’s Land,” he said. “So it was rushed and they didn’t bring any money except what they had in their pockets.” The best items in the discovery will be part of a display in the new store. Mr Kostoglou says Hobart still has plenty of buried history because its lack of high-rise constructions means buildings are on slabs rather than anchored to the bedrock. “If it was put there it’ll still be there in some way, shape or form,” he said. “The irony is that it requires a development for it to be exposed.”last_img read more

first_imgLe texte de loi sur la carte d’identité biométrique adoptéLe texte de loi traitant de la carte d’identité biométrique a été publié au Journal officiel mais il contient cependant de nombreux retraits. Le texte de loi portant sur l’usurpation d’identité et concernant la carte d’identité biométrique a été publié au Journal officiel mercredi 28 mars. Mais le texte ne contient plus l’ensemble des articles déclarés inconstitutionnels la semaine dernière. Par exemple, le fichier central contenant l’ensemble des informations sur les personnes possédant cette pièce d’identité, ne fait plus partie de la nouvelle carte d’identité. La puce optionnelle appelée “signature électronique” disparaît également.La seule puce présente sur la carte d’identité biométrique permettra de sauvegarder des informations d’état civil telles que le nom de famille, le ou les prénoms, le sexe, la date et le lieu de naissance du demandeur, son nom d’usage, son domicile, sa taille et la couleur de ses yeux, ses empreintes digitales et sa photographie. Et les personnes pouvant accéder à ces données seront également “les agents chargés des missions de recherche et de contrôle de l’identité des personnes, de vérification de la validité et de l’authenticité des passeports et des cartes nationales d’identité électroniques”.Par contre, PC Inpact relève que le texte contient un renforcement des sanctions en cas d’attaques “d’une personne morale de droit public ou d’une personne morale de droit privé chargée d’une mission de service public” contre les systèmes d’information. Dans ce cas, 10 ans d’emprisonnement et 150.000 euros d’amende peuvent être requis. Le 29 mars 2012 à 09:06 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

first_img“Getting manufacturers involved is one of the things we’re working on now, and we don’t have the perfect answer,” says French. “We’re trying to figure out the next best step. Our experience has been, it’s OK for a reader to see advertising from a manufacturer, they know they’re getting the magazine for nothing. The precedent has already been set. If there is an ad message in an online community it’s going to be OK, users realize without this the medium wouldn’t exist. Take the 50,000 people who got a magazine for the last 20 years. They didn’t know at the time but they were the beginnings of the community.”Geographic and Demographic TargetingMeanwhile, former Cygnus vice president of interactive Dave Iannone, founder of Web firm Go Forward Media and the architect of Cygnus’ Firehouse.com, is working toward monetizing a new set of social media sites. In 2009, Elsevier Public Safety acquired Iannone’s Firefighternation.com and brought Go Forward Media in to develop social media sites around JEMS (the Journal of Emergency Medical Services) and Law Officer. Today, JemsConnect has more than 10,000 members while LawOfficer Connect has more than 5,000 members.But the real push for the Elsevier social networks is going beyond their proprietary Ning platforms to wider social networks such as Facebook, where all three brands are approaching or exceeding more than 50,000 fans, according to Iannone. “One big story can drive traffic spikes of more than 50 percent,” he says. “JEMS recently had a story about a paramedic who died on the scene and it had more than one thousand shares on Facebook. That translates into tens of thousands of page-views. Our strategy is not to rely on any one single platform. We have the Ning-based Web site for the hardcore users and we have Facebook where people do surprising things, like link to a discussion on Firefighternation.com to read it, then come back to Facebook to discuss it. We can get more comments on Facebook about a discussion that’s actually on FirefighterNation.com. The days of one Web portal are over.”In terms of monetization, Elsevier and Go Forward sell fan pages to marketers for hundreds of dollars per month. “Once you’ve got them engaged with their customers and potential customers, they fully realize the full power of social media,” says Iannone.The three Elsevier sites are starting to offer geographically and demographically targeted advertising on a CPM basis and in 2010 will generate revenue in the seven figures, according to Iannone. “We’re looking at sizeable growth annually where we can be up there with the big boys at not much cost,” he adds. “Many consumer magazines have figured this out but b-to-b hasn’t been really taking advantage of social media. This stuff changes so quickly-if you thought the Web changed quickly, this is going to be even more rapid. If you haven’t caught up, you’re going to be in worse shape than you were with the Web 10 years ago.”Using Social Media To Take the Agency RoleFramingham, Massachusetts-based tech publisher IDG Communications is using social media to provide real-time market intelligence for its clients. In an expansion of its Strategic Marketing Services group, IDG has partnered with Networked Insights to launch IDG Social Scout—a service that uses proprietary analytics to track conversations around topics and brands and measures sentiment/engagement over time. Tapping Networked Insights’ proprietary “listening platform,” the IDG Social Scout service can track social conversations online in regard to specific topics chosen by IDG’s marketing clients, providing real-time data on how well those terms are resonating.After determining which topics its clients are most interested in learning about, IDG’s research team develops a community of sites based on conversational engagement and volume that the company will track on an ongoing basis. IDG provide clients with a benchmark report that includes their brand and three competitors. From there, it provides weekly metrics reports that show change in conversation, sentiment and key discussions.While still small in terms of overall revenue, social media services are becoming a significant revenue stream and IDG has struck seven figure deals around it, according to CEO Bob Carrigan. “Social media services have been tremendously successful from the user point of view but also the sponsorship point of view,” he says. “It’s not just great for revenue but every marketer wants to talk to us about this.”SIDEBARUsing Social Media to Market Face-to-FaceReal Simple’s 10th anniversary events get a boost from Facebook and Twitter.Real Simple, Time Inc.’s monthly women’s magazine touting quick-and-easy design, recipe and lifestyle tips, launched a dual-city 10th anniversary tour of the brand in Chicago and New York in April.The events, bolstered by a raft of sponsor partners, were supported by a significant social media outreach and participation campaign. “We wanted to have another outlet where we could let our users know about it and give them updated information, plus let everyone across the country feel involved,” says executive editor Kathleen Murray Harris.A separate Facebook group was created to divert the event-specific postings to its own forum—“We didn’t want to overwhelm the users on the primary page,” says Murray Harris—which collected more than 1,000 fans. From there, Real Simple and associated bloggers and a team of about a dozen tweeters were recruited for coverage.The #RS10 hashtag attained trending topic status “for about 15 minutes,” says Murray Harris, who estimates the social media coverage and almost 400 blog posts reached about 300,000 people, including 4,500 at the Chicago event.Those numbers translate into real impressions for advertisers and sponsors at the event, says Murray Harris, who added that the exposure eventually leads to actual ad buys and continued sponsor deals.A lesson the team learned at the Chicago event was to dial back the tweets. That’s an easy trap to make for location-based Twitter coverage—an enthusiastic stream of tweets from an event the majority of followers aren’t at can get overwhelming. “The initial feedback we got was that because we had people tweeting so often people that followed Real Simple asked us to back off a bit,” says Murray Harris. According to a 2009 Forrester Research study called “The Social Technographics of Business Buyers,” b-to-b buyers and decision makers are among the most active groups in social media. However, monetizing around that participation has been a struggle for b-to-b publishers.Still, turning social media into a revenue-generating business is a priority for many publishers in 2010. As Cygnus Business Media looks to build value after emerging from its Chapter 11 restructuring last year, one of its top priorities will be harnessing what CEO John French calls “social business media.”“Social media is the buzz word du jour but just like how everyone talked about Webinars and e-newsletters a couple years ago, everybody finds a new horse to ride,” he says. “We think social business media is as important as those previous developments but it’s a lot bigger. Business-to-business is a form of social media. The difference was in years past, it was done in print. We’ve gone from magazines delivering push content to getting the people out there to get together and talk.”The next step is figuring out how to monetize social media around communities such as Firehouse.com, Officer.com and EMSUnited.com. As part of the relaunch of its brand, Demers Ambulances wanted to create a social business media “buzz” and purchased an integrated package in order to reach a targeted group of EMS professionals that included ads, e-blasts, blogs booth space, podcasts and Webcasts on EMS Garage.last_img read more

first_imgA recent study indicates fires in the Yukon Flat region of Alaska are releasing more carbon into the atmosphere than previously thought.Download AudioThe study by University of Alaska Fairbanks scientists overturns old assumptions and paints a troubling portrait of future climate change.Alaska has seen record-breaking wildfire seasons in recent years. Credit: Division of Forestry. Healy fire.When you set out to model an ecosystem, it’s important to have data, a lot of data. That’s why UAF researchers Dave McGuire and Helene Genet were excited about a study in the Yukon Flats looking at charcoal deposits in lake-bed sediments. It gave them 1,200 years worth of data.Genet, McGuire and their colleagues wanted to model fire regimes in the region and how they effected the carbon cycle. The sediment data. McGuire says, were revealing.“Fire frequency has been greater in the last few decades than it’s been over the last 1,200 years. That suggest things are changing quite dramatically now.”Carbon is a key ingredient in global climate change. In nature, plants take up carbon dioxide and store it. Some of it is respired back to the atmosphere, but much of finds its way into soils.In the Arctic and subarctic, that carbon is often locked up for longer periods because of permafrost.Fires moving across the landscape can release a lot of carbon. And researchers assusmed released carbon spurred more plant growth, balancing the books. That assumption might be revised now.By modeling the effect of long-term fire history on the ecosystem, Genet says it looks like more carbon is being released than captured.“The way we have spun up the model before leads to an underestimation of the carbon loss in Interior Alaska or at least in regions that are exposed to fire regimes.”Genet and McGuire’s study just looks at the Yukon Flats. But if the same conditions occur in similar Arctic and sub-Arctic boreal forests, where roughly a third of the Earth’s terrestrial carbon is stored, the implications to climate change could be dire.last_img read more

However, this new messaging system that will soon replace SMS has no end-to-end encryption yet.   ( Pixabay ) Google has started the delivery of its next-generation messaging, Rich Communication Services. Android users in France and the UK will be first to experience RCS chat.RCS has been around for several years already and it was only recently that Google finally decided to go ahead with the service without waiting for local carriers to carry out the new messaging system.”We’d love work with our US carrier partners on RCS. Trying!!!! PS: RCS now fully rolled out in UK and FR. Next wave of countries soon,” tweeted Hiroshi Lockheimer, Google senior vice president, as he announced the services’ rollout.

Some 55 networks, 11 phone makers, and two operating system providers have agreed to support RCS. Any of the parties, carriers, OEMs, or OS providers can enable RCS services.Main Features Of RCSThe RCS or Chat as referred to by Google’s Android Messages app offers a majority of the features of a modern messaging app. Some of its notable features include the read-receipts capability, high-quality attachments, group messaging, and live typing indicators.RCS also enables users to send long texts without a character limit. It also allows sending of content and sharing of live location. It supports IP-based video and voice calling and network-based blacklisting as well.It will eventually replace SMS and MMS and will operate completely within a phone’s standard texting app. This new messaging system described as “SMS on steriods” aims to rival iPhone’s iMessage.However, unlike other similar internet-based messaging apps like Whatsapp and Signal, RCS lacks end-to-end encryption. Google said it is fully committed to finding a solution regarding the encryption feature.Downside Of This New Messaging SystemThe rollout will take place country-by-country, so there’s no official schedule yet for when Google will make the service available for most Android users worldwide.Since Google went ahead and cut out the carriers to make the RCS Chat work at the app level, it could also render the RCS Chat unusable. Each user in a conversation needs to have a phone that supports the standard for it to work, otherwise, SMS will remain as the default messaging app.With regard to privacy and security concerns, the lack of end-to-end encryption remains a crucial issue. Lastly, users won’t be able to start taking advantage of the RCS Chat until the local wireless carrier has activated the feature.
