first_imgOTTAWA – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau heads to Washington Tuesday to further strengthen the ties between Canada and the U.S. just as a new poll suggests Canadians don’t want this country heading down the same path as its southern neighbour.But the results of the Ekos-Canadian Press survey don’t necessarily mean Canadians’ points of view are completely at odds with those who voted U.S. President Donald Trump into office, said Ekos president Frank Graves.Ekos and the Canadian Press surveyed 4,839 Canadians via telephone between Sept. 15 and Oct. 1 as part of an ongoing effort to understand whether the same drivers exist in Canada as those behind populist movements supporting a more isolationist viewpoint around the world.The results suggest Canada favours a more open approach — 60 per cent of those asked don’t want a “Canada First” foreign policy that mirrors the “America First” rallying cry that put Trump in office. Eighty per cent of those surveyed also disapprove of the way Trump is handling his job, and 52 per cent want to see Canada become less like the U.S.“Canada is clearly pivoting open, you can make the case with some of the data on that,” said Graves.“But if you look at more of the data, I’m not so sure. It’s not that clear.”The data also suggests 22 per cent of those surveyed think Canada ought to become more isolated, a marked increase after years of the number remaining relatively flat.Also, among those surveyed 37 per cent think Canada’s immigration policy admits too many visible minorities. Twenty-nine per cent said they’ve experienced an incident of racism in the last month, and 33 per cent said they believe racism is becoming more common.Ekos conducted the survey between Sept. 15 and Oct. 1, and the survey of the entire sample has a margin of error of plus or minus 1.4 percentage points 19 times out of 20.Different sample sizes were polled for each question to increase the number of questions researchers were able to ask.Ekos has been tracking attitudes towards visible minority immigration for 25 years because it serves as a way to test levels of racial intolerance in Canada, said Graves.The question of whether it is too high was put to 1,154 people during the recent survey, and the margin of error for those findings was 2.9 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.Forty-two per cent believe the right amount are being let in and 15 per cent say too few.Graves said the incidence of those believing it’s too high peaked before the last federal election and seems to be on the decline. It’s still lower than it was in the 1990s, he said.The survey also probed for people’s perceptions of their economic future, and the results suggest Canadians are pretty pessimistic about the way things are going, despite economic indicators to the contrary.That, coupled with the responses on how open this country ought to be, suggests the door can’t be closed on the argument that the same economic and social frustration that’s fuelled populism elsewhere doesn’t exist here, Graves said.“There’s clearly a significant portion of Canada that’s not going to be convinced by the whole notion that an open welcoming Canada is the right answer to the problems that they see in their lives and the country.”What that might mean for Canada’s political landscape remains to be seen. Sixty-four per cent of those who say Canada is letting in too many visible minorities identify as Conservative supporters; 62 per cent of those who think the number is just right are Liberal.But Graves noted that studies done in the U.S. before and after that election revealed that people who were exhibiting racial intolerance and who voted for Trump said they would have voted Democrat if that party had put forward a more progressive platform.Maintaining support for immigration ranks high on the Liberals’ list of priorities; in the coming weeks, they’re poised to unveil how many newcomers Canada will admit in 2018.The Liberals are keen on immigration to foster economic growth, but complicating the issue is the ongoing arrival of asylum seekers at the border prompting criticism the government has lost control of the system.In Britain, a survey after the surprising yes vote in a referendum on leaving the EU found that nearly 73 per cent of those who voted to leave were worried about immigration levels being too high.The Ekos survey found 41 per cent feel too many immigrants are currently being let in overall.last_img read more

first_imgOTTAWA – Gun-control activists implored Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Thursday to not let the pro-gun lobby slow down his government’s efforts to introduce firearm legislation.Serge St-Arneault, who lost his sister during the Ecole polytechnique massacre in 1989, asked Trudeau to keep his party’s campaign promise.“I know the gun lobby is strong and noisy,” he said, standing with eight other gun-control activists in Ottawa.“But your party…was elected with a majority due to, among other things, your promise to reverse the damage caused by the Harper government.”Trudeau promised firearm-tracing regulations that would help police better trace guns used in crimes.The campaign pledge was not popular with the firearm community, which has long opposed the rules and “continues to advocate against their coming into force,” according to an internal note to Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale, obtained by The Canadian Press last spring.Heidi Rathjen, co-ordinator of an organization comprised of survivors of the Polytechnique massacre and members of victims’ families, criticized the government’s working group on firearms.“The new committee … has had only two meetings — one in March and one in May,” she said. “When the minister (Goodale) was asked when the gun control bill would be tabled, one of his responses was the committee was ‘hard at work.’”Rathjen said the delays are due to the “objections of firearm owners.”Her group, called PolySeSouvient, has recently found new allies: members of Quebec’s Muslim community who are still in shock over the shooting deaths of six men in a Quebec City mosque last January.“I lived this event, I saw the destructive force of these firearms,” said Nizar Ghali, who survived the attack and who was among the activists in Ottawa.“I saw my brothers fall and die in a pool of their own blood. What are you waiting for to act?”A spokesperson for Goodale released a statement to say, “in the near future, we will introduce a host of legislative measures in harmony with what was in our electoral program.”The statement also said the Liberal party has no intention of creating another long-gun registry, which was destroyed by the Harper government.last_img read more

Freshman guard D’Angelo Russell (0) brings the back up the floor during a game against Wisconsin on March 8 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU lost, 72-48.Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorD’Angelo Russell wore the No. 11 on his jersey up until high school.Then Russell, now a freshman at Ohio State, switched to No. 3, he said. But when he got to Columbus, No. 3 was taken by senior guard Shannon Scott and No. 11 was retired. After fellow freshman Jae’Sean Tate chose No. 1, Russell settled on the number that most closely resembles OSU’s block “O” logo on his jersey.The Louisville, Ky., native said he’s not really sure why he chose zero, but threw out one idea with a smile on his face.“Zero people can guard me, that’s probably what it was,” Russell said Wednesday.Jokes aside, Russell has proved to be a difficult matchup for many of the Buckeyes’ opponents throughout his first collegiate season. The Big Ten Freshman of the Year averaged 19.2 points per game during the regular season, including 20.3 points per game in Big Ten play.Those numbers put him a full nine points ahead of senior forward Sam Thompson, who finished second on the team in scoring. Russell also led the team with 5.6 rebounds per game for the entire season, and finished first in conference play with 5.1 assists per game.Russell said he recognizes his ability to take over games, but added that success going forward will have to be a team effort.“It’s all about timing and shots falling and just being aggressive every possession I get,” he said. “And just coming together as a team when adversity hits, and whenever it sets in, we just gotta be stronger and everything’s gonna happen from there.”Coming off a 72-48 loss to Wisconsin in Sunday’s regular-season finale, Russell and the Buckeyes’ next step is set to be in the Big Ten Tournament. OSU is scheduled to take on Minnesota on Thursday night in Chicago.After the Buckeyes’ Big Ten run comes to an end, they’ll find out their NCAA Tournament fate Sunday night.While he’s been one of the key reasons OSU has won 22 games, Russell shook off comparisons to former University of Connecticut tournament heroes Shabazz Napier and Kemba Walker when it comes to his plans for his first collegiate postseason.“I wouldn’t say (a) Shabazz or Kemba type thing, but I would definitely do a D’Angelo Russell approach and do whatever I got to do to lead this team,” Russell said. “If it’s scoring, rebounding, whatever coach needs me to do, I’m willing and I just want to win, and I know the guys that I got around me and the coaching staff want the same thing.”OSU coach Thad Matta said he’d be willing to “swear to” Russell’s drive to win games, not to put up individual statistics.“D’Angelo would probably rather average 15 points, eight assists and six rebounds and win than score 25 points and that sort of thing,” Matta said Wednesday. “That’s kind of his mentality, he doesn’t take to losing easy.”Matta added that Russell spends “a lot of time” discussing exactly what the coaches need the team to do to win games.“Just saying, ‘Hey, what do we gotta do since Sunday, what do you want me to do? How can I get these guys? Let’s do whatever we need to do,’” Matta said. “You know that kid cares.”Matta acknowledged that Russell’s success amid the team’s times of struggle have led to extra pressure on the freshman.“I think we’ve put so much pressure on him, we’ve gotta get these other guys playing,” he said. “D’Angelo didn’t play well Sunday, he’ll be the first to tell you that.”Russell, who scored 17 points but made just 1-of-7 3-point attempts in the loss to Wisconsin, said the team as a whole has to find a way to put that loss behind it.“I think we’re all on the same page and we know that that was a tough loss,” he said. “But like I said, it can trigger anything with success and just playing well for the tournament and then the NCAA Tournament and so forth.”While the Buckeyes’ season will end whenever their postseason run concludes, Russell will be faced with a decision as to whether he wants to do it again. Projected as a top-five pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, Russell said his focus hasn’t strayed from the task facing OSU in the postseason, beginning with Thursday night’s matchup.“It’s not on my mind,” he said. “Not really preparing for any of that right now, just trying to get the most wins we can and be as successful as we can.” read more

first_imgThe tourism sector has emerged as the major pylon of economic growth and stability for Greece, a fact which will be confirmed with the signing of a protocol of cooperation between Greece and Turkey as it was underlined this week during the 8th Greece-Turkey Forum on Tourism. Addressing the forum, Culture and Tourism Minister Pavlos Yeroulanos pointed out that target markets for the two countries should include India, China, Japan and North America. Yeroulanos focused on the obstacles the two countries need to overcome during his speech, naming the simplification of visa issuance procedures as one of them. He also referred to the importance of joint travel packages offered by Greece and Turkey which will feature common tourism products, such as familiarisation trips and promotion programs. Turkey’s Culture and Tourism Minister, Ertugrul Gunay, praised the atmosphere existing between the two countries and underlined that the Aegean can serve as a “life vest” amid the economic crisis. He also said joint participation of the two countries in international tourism exhibitions in shared pavilions is a very important move, one aimed at attracting specialised markets. Regarding the spectrum of bilateral cooperation, the Turkish minister stressed that it ranges from attracting investments to developing sea cruise and religious tourism, suggesting that a forum should be held at least every two years.

Smoke-free parks protect the health and quality of life of residents and visitors.Children exposed to secondhand smoke/vape are more likely to suffer from colds, ear infections, bronchitis and pneumonia.Secondhand smoke is especially dangerous to children AND adults with asthma or other chronic illness because it makes their condition worse and triggers asthma attacks.Secondhand smoke has been identified as a Toxic Air Contaminant by the California Air ResourceThis puts secondhand smoke in the same category as diesel exhaust, arsenic, and benzene.  Santee Park & Recreation Committee to consider ordinance to make public parks smoke-free , center_img Posted: December 14, 2017 Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter Vape is not simply water vapor.

first_imgThe state Department of Ecology and the Port of Ridgefield are mulling an interim cleanup plan for part of the polluted Pacific Wood Treating site.Public comment on the latest plan will be accepted through Thursday.State regulators are considering an interim cleanup plan that would excavate hot spots of polluted soil, down to industrial-standard cleanup levels, then cap those areas with a geotech-style membrane below a minimum of 2 feet of clean fill imported from the Ridgefield interchange project on Interstate 5. The idea is to block rainwater from filtering down and potentially causing the pollution to migrate with groundwater.“When you cap it, you remove one of the primary methods for migration,” said Craig Rankine, site manager for the Department of Ecology.The 41-acre site operated as a wood-treating company from 1963 to 1993, soaking the ground with cancer-causing pollutants. The company went bankrupt in 1993. The port is continuing the cleanup, which it expects will cost taxpayers between $68 million and $70 million by the time it’s complete.Contaminants that will be addressed in the cleanup include dioxins and furans, arsenic and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.The full interim cleanup plan is available for review at the Ridgefield Library, 210 N. Main Ave., or online at http://www.ecy.wa.gov/programs/tcp/sites/pacWoodTreat/pacWoodTreat_hp.html.

Angela Lang/CNET Huawei is reportedly giving itself more time to overtake Samsung as the world’s biggest phone-seller.The scandal-scarred Chinese company took the No. 2 spot from Apple in the second quarter of 2018, and CEO Richard Yu previously said it aimed to become the world’s largest phone vendor by the end of 2019.Its chief strategy officer revised that goal in a speech Tuesday at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) Asia, according to Reuters.”We would have become the largest in the fourth quarter [of this year] but now we feel that this process may take longer,” Shao Yang said in Shanghai. 9 1:28 Now playing: Watch this: Tags Huawei scales back production, AI destroys humans (again) Share your voice Huawei’s P30 looks like fantastic forbidden fruit Aug 31 • Your phone screen is gross.

first_img This story originally appeared on Reuters Register Now » Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Samsung Electronics Co Ltd aims to use its $56 billion cash pile to fund growth including acquisitions, the tech giant’s investor relations chief said, even as more shareholders clamor for bigger dividends.While the South Korean company’s profit declined in 2014 for the first time in three years as its lead in smartphones was challenged by Apple Inc, investors were cheered by a 40 percent dividend boost and its first share buyback since 2007.But Robert Yi, Samsung’s head of investor relations, signaled that shareholders should not expect the same in 2015 as the company keeps its focus on growth.”Dividends and other forms of shareholder returns are responsibilities that the company has for shareholders, so we will make efforts to meet them. But our primary objective is growth and that is what we are communicating to our shareholders,” Yi told Reuters in an interview.Samsung has become an increasingly active shopper, striking 10 deals in two years. Even so, its purchases have been small, prompting calls from some investors for bigger deals to revive growth momentum.”We are primarily focused on M&A deals for companies that would be good fits to Samsung’s current businesses, and we believe that know-how and experience accrued from such transactions will make bigger M&A deals possible going forward,” Yi said.Samsung Electronics held cash of 61.8 trillion won ($56.14 billion) at the end of 2014.Yi said more value fund managers had bought Samsung shares over the past year as its share price and earnings declined.”Their main interest is to increase long-term value through shareholder returns policies, so they have been calling for more dividends and share buybacks,” he said.Yi declined to comment specifically on plans for buybacks or dividends. A person familiar with the matter told Reuters on Feb. 10 that Samsung would probably pay out less this year than in 2014.South Korean companies are notoriously parsimonious when it comes to dividends. Seoul-listed shares tend to trade at discounts to peers.Yi said Samsung planned to strengthen shareholder outreach, making top management more available to institutional investors and holding more public events.It also wanted to boost investment by foreign retail investors to help build consumer loyalty. Samsung, which does not have American Depositary Receipts, in 2013 arranged a program with Bank of America Merrill Lynch that allows U.S. retail investors to invest directly in its shares. Samsung declined to comment on how many investors acquired its stock through the program.Samsung shares fell to multi-year lows in October but have recovered and were up 3.8 percent in 2015 based on Tuesday’s closing level.($1 = 1,100.8700 won)(Editing by Tony Munroe and Stephen Coates) 3 min read Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.

first_img Share A bill to amend the Truth in Lending Act to modify the definitions of a mortgage originator and a high-cost mortgage moved to the Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee on Tuesday. The bill, known as the “Preserving Access to Manufactured Act,” was reintroduced by U.S. Senators Joe Donnelly (D-IN), Pat Toomey (R-PA), Joe Manchin (D-WV), and Tom Cotton (R-AR) and according to the senators the legislation would protect the ability of manufactured home customers to buy, sell, and refinance homes, while maintaining important consumer protections.“The decision to purchase a home is one of the most significant investments Hoosier families make. We should do everything we can to preserve access to affordable housing, including manufactured housing,” Sen Donnelly said in a press release. “I am grateful Senators Toomey, Manchin, and Cotton are joining me in this bipartisan effort to fix an issue impacting families trying to buy manufactured homes.”In 2013, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) issued guidelines to expand the range of loan products that can be considered high-cost mortgages under the Home Ownership and Equity Protection Act (HOEPA). According to the senators, the CFPB guidelines went into effect in January 2014 with the CFPB failing to recognize how unique manufactured home loans can be. After the guidelines were released a large percentage of small-balance loans used for the purchase of affordable manufactured housing were classified as high cost loans. As a result, lender liabilities associated with making and obtaining HOEPA high cost mortgage has increased. This could lead to a loss of credit available to those seeking to purchase manufactured housing.“Manufactured housing plays an important role in homeownership options, which have unfortunately been constrained by excessive regulations by the CFPB,” Sen. Cotton said. “As we’ve seen, unintended consequences of these regulations have limited the housing and mortgaging choices of hard-working Americans in many rural areas, like my home state of Arkansas. I was proud to support this bill last year on the House Financial Services Committee, and I’m glad to join my colleagues on the Senate Banking Committee in pushing for this small but important measure of regulatory relief.”According to the senators, the “Preserving Access to Manufactured Housing Act” would help adjust HOEPA thresholds so fewer manufactured home loans are classified as high-cost. Under the HOEPA guidelines, if a transaction is for less than $50,000 and the home is considered personal property, then the interest rate on a mortgage cannot exceed Average Prime Offer Rate (APOR) by more than 8.5 percent or else it is considered ‘high-cost’ and subject to added liability and disclosure. The bill would increase that threshold to APOR by 10 percent for transactions under $75,000. in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Origination March 11, 2015 629 Views center_img CFPB manufactured homes Senate Banking Housing and Urban Affair Committee Truth in Lending Act 2015-03-11 Samantha Guzman Bill Seeks to Amend Truth in Lending Actlast_img read more

Three other scientists, Philip, Charron, Andrew Singer and Edward Hepler make up the rest of the Pennsylvania-based team Final Frontier Medical Devices.“The team brings together expertise in medicine, surgery, programming, signal processing, hardware design, medical sensors, user experience design, health policy and mobile tech,” the XPRIZE website says.According to an article in the Washington Post, the device with external sensors collects information which is then processed in the device’s diagnostic engine to make a quick and accurate assessment.The DxtER device was designed with the aim of providing diagnosis and monitoring of a number of diseases from the comfort of home without the consumer having medical training.Apart from diabetes and tuberculosis it can diagnose diseases such as atrial fibrillation, chronic obstructive lung disease, urinary tract infection, sleep apnea, leukocytosis, whooping cough, stroke and pneumonia. Overall, the device can be used to diagnose 34 different diseases or conditions that affect health.The device collects data from the patient’s health history and family history, vital signs, body chemistry and biological functions to make an immediate assessment.“The Final Frontier Medical Devices could bring a revolution in medical home care. It can diagnose whether someone is suffering from pneumonia or diabetes or other diseases and at the same time monitor blood pressure, heart rate and other vital functions. In addition to all this information it can be accessed in real time by a professional doctor something that could help millions of patients in medical deprived communities,” newspaper ‘Tricorder’ commented.Team leader Basil Harris is a physician with a Ph.D. in engineering. He has been actively practicing emergency medicine for more than 12 years at Lankenau Medical Centre in Philadelphia. He received his undergraduate and graduate engineering degrees from Drexel and Cornell Universities. Harris has research experience in medicine and engineering with over a dozen publications.You May LikeTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionOne Thing All Liars Have in Common, Brace YourselfTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionUndoFigLeaf Beta AppGet Maximum Privacy with Minimum EffortFigLeaf Beta AppUndoTotal Battle – Online Strategy GameIf You’re PC User This Strategy Game Is A Must-Have!Total Battle – Online Strategy GameUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoTwo arrested in connection with attempted murderUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
