Alberta monitors makes contingency plans on road clearing in UK firm bankruptcy

first_imgEDMONTON – Alberta’s transportation minister says they are making contingency plans to clear and maintain roads as they monitor the financial fallout of a multinational United Kingdom construction company.Brian Mason says for now they believe the bankruptcy of Carillion PLC won’t affect the operations of its Canadian subsidiary.Carillion Canada maintains more than 40 per cent of Alberta’s highways.It also has operations in Ontario, including the renovations of Toronto’s Union Station.Mason said the province privatized road maintenance services under the previous Progressive Conservative government.He says the government is reviewing road maintenance, but said for now there’s no plan to move away from the privatized model.“We’ve certainly looked at the various options (but) I don’t think that that’s a direction that we’re going to be going right now,” Mason said Tuesday.A spokesman for Carillion Canada has said it’s business as usual in Canada despite the parent company’s collapse on Monday. Cody Johnstone said Carillion Canada is not in liquidation and its 6,000 employees in Canada continue to be paid, along with its subcontractors and suppliers.The British construction giant went into compulsory liquidation after weekend talks with creditors failed to get the short-term financing it needed to continue operating.last_img read more

China Russia Veto UN Action to refer Syria to ICC

Tangier – On May 22, 2014, the United Nations Security Council was unable to adopt a resolution to transfer the issue of serious human rights abuses in Syria to the International Criminal Court (ICC) because Moscow and Beijing both used vetoes to oppose it.More than 10 days after the Joint UN-League of Arab States Special Representative on the Syrian crisis, Lakhdar Brahimi, resigned, there is still a failure at the UN to agree upon a resolution to the ongoing human rights abuses in Syria.  After more than two years of tireless diplomatic efforts to come up with a political solution to the heartbreaking civil war in Syria, the Security Council is trying to step forward and change the status quo by referring the issue to another entity.The failed resolution would have referred the situation to the ICC in order to investigate the serious crimes alleged to have been committed during three long years of bloody conflict in Syria.  Although the resolution was supported by 13 members of the UN Security Council, it was blocked by two permanent members, Russia and China. According to the official United Nations website, Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson said, prior to the vote in a statement delivered on behalf of Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon: “The Syrian people have a fundamental right to justice. The United Nations and its Member States have a fundamental duty to defend that right.”He also stated that, “Since the outbreak of the war in Syria, I have persistently called for accountability for perpetrators of grave human rights violations, crimes against humanity and war crimes. The recent attacks against humanitarian convoys and personnel, which may constitute war crimes, add to the urgent need to see action now on accountability in Syria.”  Finally stating, “The Security Council has an inescapable responsibility in this regard. States that are members of both the Security Council and the Human Rights Council have a particular duty to end the bloodshed and to ensure justice for the victims of unspeakable crimes.”According to The Guardian, the US Ambassador, Samatha Power immediately responded to China’s and Russia’s opposition by saying, “the Syrian people will not see justice today.  They will see crime, but not punishment. The vetoes today have prevented the victims of atrocities from testifying at The Hague.”On February 2013, according to the same source, the UN Commission of Inquiry concluded that the ICC is the appropriate body to closely follow the Syrian crisis and bring those who fight against impunity in Syria to justice.Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson warned that, “If members of the Council continue to be unable to agree on a measure that could provide some accountability for the ongoing crimes, the credibility of this body and of the entire Organization will continue to suffer.”Sixty-five countries had appealed to all 193 UN member states to agree on the resolution, under which the ICC would be authorized to investigate allegations of the alleged monstrous crimes by the Syrian regime and armed extremist-opposition groups. read more

Media in Sri Lanka not free

Media freedom remained restricted in Sri Lanka in 2012, with journalists subject to myriad forms of legal harassment and physical intimidation, Freedom House,  an independent watchdog organization dedicated to the expansion of freedom around the world said in a report.The report said that although the government included several items related to media freedom in its July 2012 National Action Plan on national reconciliation—including the passage of freedom of information legislation, enhanced efforts to investigate and prosecute past cases of attacks on journalists, and increased physical access for reporters to the north and east of the country—little progress was made on any of these recommendations by year’s end. “There is no enforceable right to information in the constitution or separate legislation. In fact, the Establishments Code, the formal administrative code governing civil servants, actively discourages access to information even on public-interest grounds. An attempt by the opposition to introduce a right to information bill in Parliament in 2011 was defeated by the governing majority, in violation of its previous campaign promises, and an additional attempt in May 2012 was also stymied by the speaker of Parliament,” the report said.The report said that journalists throughout Sri Lanka, particularly those who cover human rights or military issues, face regular intimidation and pressure from government officials at all levels. (Colombo Gazette) The 1973 Press Council Act, which prohibits disclosure of certain fiscal, defense, and security information, was revived in 2009, having not been enforced in more than a decade. The government nominates all seven council members under the act, and violations of its provisions can draw prison terms and other punitive measures. In July 2012, the government announced its intention to extend the act’s application to electronic and web-based media, and to introduce registration fees of 100,000 rupees ($780), with annual renewal fees of 50,000 rupees for websites. These figures were revised downward in August to 25,000 rupees and 10,000 rupees respectively. In 2006, unofficial prepublication censorship on issues of “national security and defense” was imposed by a new Media Center for National Security (MCNS), which assumed the authority to disseminate all information related to these issues to the media and the public. In March 2012, the MCNS issued a directive extending this provision to news services distributed via mobile-telephone text messaging. The constitution provides for freedom of expression, but it and other laws and regulations place significant limits on the exercise of this right. The 1979 Prevention of Terrorism Act contains extremely broad restrictions, such as a prohibition on bringing the government into contempt. The decades-old Official Secrets Act bans reporting on classified information, and those convicted of gathering secret information can be sentenced to up to 14 years in prison. Although no journalists have ever been charged under the law, it is used as a threat. Journalists are also occasionally threatened with contempt-of-court charges or questioned regarding their sources. read more

Slack Fights Channel Admin Fatigue

laptop-3190194_1920.jpg While a launch date for the APIs wasn’t announced, the company stated that they “are coming soon” and more information can be found on Slack’s website. Tags:News & ViewsDigital WorkplaceSlackcustomizationworkspace collaborationDigital WorkplaceDigital TransformationDigital WorkplaceOrganization & ManagementVendor News Articles You Might Like The one-size-fits-all approach to enterprise communication is a thing of the past. Now, everybody wants the ability to customize their workspaces, adding functionality and permissions as they see fit – an administrative nightmare. Slack aims to address this with a pair of announcements aimed at streamlining the work of admins for large organizations. With these new APIs, admins can create new workspaces and assign name domains and descriptions to them. They’ll be able to assign members to a workspace, rather than having to join each individual member themselves. For guest accounts, they’ll be able to issue invites to specific channels (including private ones), set guest expiration dates, and customize welcome messages. Additionally, admins will be able to delegate specific members with admin responsibilities. To ensure that the “right” users are commenting and posting on a channel, Slack has given admins and other key stakeholders the ability to customize posting permissions for any channel, as discussed in a company blog posted today. These expanded posting permissions are available for companies using Slack’s Plus or Enterprise Grid plans. Through these channels and customization options, Slack hopes enterprises will be able to reduce unnecessary chatter and keep channels clear for only important updates. When the APIs roll out, admins will be able to script the creation of new workspaces, which will automatically configure with desired settings, apps, content, and more. Admins will be able to define criteria that can be used to automate app approvals and rejections across all workspaces in an Enterprise Grid organization. For example, if an organization uses Box for storage, admins might whitelist the app, eliminating the manual approval needed for the workspace, Slack noted. Similarly, admins can set a rule to reject requests for specific apps or app scopes automatically. Workforce Optimization, Looking Ahead Nicolas De Kouchkovsky August 27, 2019 Combining performance, quality, and workforce management, workforce optimization is providing a 360-degree view of agents and their responsibilities. Automating, Streamlining WorkflowsIn the second announcement, Slack is giving admins more control to create and customize workspaces through a new suite of APIs. Announcement_Channels-v2.1-DC.gif Keeping Channels ClearSometimes the easiest way to make an announcement across an enterprise is by broadcasting it through a channel. However, user comments or side conversations can quickly bog down these announcements. Smarter Not Harder: Communications in the Next-Gen Workplace Scott McMaster August 09, 2019 Agile and collaborative businesses are increasingly leveraging communication tools to grow their businesses. Oregon State University College of Engineering (OSU COE) has benefited from the streamlined workflows enabled by the APIs, as Slack discussed in its blog post. In the past, Slack described, OSU COE’s admin team would be backlogged due to the manual creation of workspaces, resulting in delays for professors trying to set up class-specific workspaces. To address this, OSU COE admins leveraged the new admin APIs to set up workspaces instantly when professors submit request forms. Is Cognitive Collaboration in UCC’s Cards?

Grad student research recognized with Jack M Miller awards

The Faculty of Graduate Studies (FGS) is pleased to announce the 2016 recipients of the Jack M. Miller Excellence in Research Awards.The awards have a proud history. They were established as the Excellence in Research Awards by the late Jack Miller when he served as Vice-President Research and Dean of Graduate Studies, from 1999 to 2004.As a tribute to Miller, the FGS renamed the awards in his honour in 2013 and, at the same time, increased the number of awards available and the value of each award.Since then, as many as 11 graduates students, in research-based programs, are selected annually from within the six academic faculties to receive between $1,000 to $1,500 to support their research and scholarship.Award criteria include the originality, significance, and depth of research projects as well as the student’s record of publications and presentations.“It’s a highly prestigious honour to be selected from within individual academic Faculties to receive a Miller award,” says Mike Plyley, Dean, Faculty of Graduate Studies.“Our 2016 recipients stand apart for pursuing exciting and bold directions of research. They are passionate and committed about learning the craft of research as they address questions that are pertinent to today’s society. Their graduate student career is marked by strong records of publications and conference presentations through which they eagerly share what they know and why their work matters.”Over the next week, The Brock News will post a series of profiles about this year’s recipients. The first set of profiles features the winners from the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences.2016 Jack Miller Excellence in Research Awards for the Faculty of Applied Health SciencesKirsten Bott – MSc Applied Health Sciences; Supervisor Dr. Sandra PetersKirsten Bott is an emerging expert in both bone and muscle research, says her supervisor Dr. Sandra Peters.“While researchers have studied bone and muscle separately for some time, it is becoming increasingly clear that this approach is outdated, since the function/strength and metabolism of these two tissues are intimately linked. However, rarely are experts in one tissue even familiar with the other. Kirsten has successfully bridged this gap,” says Peters.“Kirsten has always had a clear direction of where she wants to go and how she is going to get there. This is a new direction for my lab, and I’m excited that a master’s student could be so instrumental in expanding my horizons.”Bott will continue doctoral studies at Brock under the supervision of Peters and Professor Wendy Ward. Her doctoral thesis will focus on investigating the effects of nutrition on muscle and bone health.“Studying the effects of these two major lifestyle factors together is of high importance given the increasingly aging population in Canada as a whole,” Bott says.“My goal is to begin a career in research and academia and this award assists me in continuing my studies to achieve that goal.”Bott’s research has been recognized with external funding support that includes OGS and QEII-OGSST scholarships. She has published a peer-reviewed paper as first author and has presented her research at local, national and international conferences and meetings.Bott is contributing to the University in many other ways. She is a member of the Biosciences Research Ethics Boards and the Brock Exercise and Medicine Committee, and was an assistant with the Leave the Pack behind project. Most recently, Bott began a second straight one-year term as the VP Communications for the Graduate Students’ Association. Lindsay Cline — PhD candidate Applied Health Sciences (Behavioural and Population Health); Supervisor Kim GammageLindsay Cline will put her award to good use very quickly.The monetary value of the award will help Cline cover registration fees to present her PhD research at the 2016 Canadian Positive Psychology Association conference this June.Cline’s research focuses on helping women develop more positive body image.“I am particularly interested in promoting body appreciation, a characteristic of positive body image, as a way of helping women to develop a protective filter against negative weight stigma often experienced by women who are overweight,” Cline explains.Cline is at the forefront of body image literature in three significant ways, says her supervisor Professor Kim Gammage.Lindsay Cline“Lindsay’s dissertation is among the first to investigate body image from a positive perspective,” Gammage says. “She has also taken a unique approach to understanding appearance commentary-feedback such as teasing and compliments.“Finally she has also taken a novel approach to investigating the impact of body weight on body image.”In May, Cline also presented her study at the 2016 Qualitative Methods Conference in Glasgow, Scotland.She has a growing record of publications with four published-papers and in-press-papers along with two more in submission.Cline’s research, both as a master’s and doctoral student, has been recognized with prestigious funding support from SSHRC, CGS and OGS.She is a recipient of several Brock awards that highlight both qualities of academic excellence and leadership contributions. These awards include the Spirit of Brock Award, the President’s Surgite Award, the Brock University Distinguished Graduate Student Award, and the Barb Daly Excellence & Student Leadership Award.“Lindsay is a leader by example in my lab — influencing students from the high school mentorship program, to undergraduates completing independent studies and theses, to master’s students’ research projects,” Gammage says.This year’s other recipients are:Master’s students:Jesse Abbott, HistoryKirsten Bott, Applied Health SciencesMegan Earle, PsychologyZahid Rahman, ManagementXiaolong Yang, ChemistryDoctoral students:Terry Chu, ChemistryLindsay Cline, Applied Health SciencesShawn Geniole, PsychologyJulia Polyck-O’Neill, Interdisciplinary Humanities read more

Tews and Websters Falls problems

Residents who live nearby Webster’s and Tews Falls are saying enough is enough.Visitation to the area in the last few years has ballooned causing all kinds of problems for the people who live there, so much so that nearly 330 people have signed a petition calling for change.Traffic is the number one problem associated with the falls and it’s the worst on Short Road in Greensville.One neighbour says the situation is so intolerable that she put her house up for sale.The Hamilton Conservation Authority had turned the grass at the park at Webster’s Falls into a parking lot which residents say made the overcrowding situation get worse.In 2012, the Hamilton Conservation Authority estimated about 80,000 people visited the area. Last year, they say that number grew significantly to about 140,000 visitors.At Thursday night’s meeting the Conservation Authority announced that they would no longer be letting people park on the grass which residents say is a step in the right direction but won’t fix the problem.Both the locals and the Conservation Authority agree that taking away that parking option leaves a new problem.The Conservation Authority is looking for a new place for parking and has plans to operate a shuttle system.But, parking isn’t the only problem, trespassing and littering are other concerns, although the officials say they have the garbage under control.The environment is another big concern.The Conservation Authority is trying to draw people away from the falls and bring them to other recreational areas like Christie Lake. read more

Jamaicas lack of competitiveness could blight future with CARICOM — Golding
