Clarification – After publishing this story representative from the AFN wrote to APTN to clarify their position.They said they understand the resolution to be a step toward a public inquiry and noted the following: “AFN resolutions 02-2011, 01-2012 and 04-2013 specifically call for a national inquiry and it is a focus of the AFN’s National Action Plan to End Violence Against Indigenous Women and Girls. Further, the resolution that mandated to work towards the roundtable (04-2014) specifically states it is a step towards an inquiry. These resolutions and the Action Plan are all publicly available and on the AFN website as are many public statements calling for a national inquiry. The AFN has been and will continue to be very vocal in its calls and action towards a national public commission of inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls, as reiterated in the AFN’s Opening Remarks at this Special Chiefs Assembly.”APTN National NewsWINNIPEG – Rinelle Harper stood on the podium before the chiefs pleading to them to call for an inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women on the first day of the Assembly of First Nations special assembly earlier this week.It was one of the first public statements by the 16-year-old since she was sexually assaulted, viciously beaten and left for dead by a Winnipeg river last month.“I ask that everyone here remembers a few simple words – love, kindness, respect and forgiveness,” Rinelle told the crowd as her parents and older sister stood by her. “As a survivor, I respectfully challenge you all to call for a national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women.”Chiefs from across Canada backed a roundtable voting unanimously in favour of two resolutions aimed at including women and families in the debate.One called for the inclusion of relatives of missing and murdered Indigenouswomen while the other wants the federal government to formally announce its participation in the roundtable and provide resources for Native women’s councils to take part.Chief Cathy Merrick of Manitoba’s Cross Lake First Nation burst into tears when her resolution on families of missing and murdered Indigenous women was passed Thursday. There are no resources to support mourning families or help them participate in the roundtable expected in February, she said.“Families should be given that support. When they go out looking for their loved ones, they have no support,” she said. “It’s 2014. We should be able to support them. We have to do something.”An RCMP report released earlier this year put the total of missing and murdered women at 1,181. Indigenous women make up 4.3 per cent of the Canadian population, but they account for 16 per cent of female homicides.Although the issue of missing and murdered Indigenous women has been a key focus of the three-day assembly meeting, no one moved a formal resolution demanding the federal government call a national inquiry. Instead, the focus was aimed at empowering and including those on the front lines of the issue.Ghislain Picard, the assembly’s interim leader who lost his bid to become national chief Wednesday, raised the possibility of First Nations holding their own inquiry given Ottawa’s steadfast refusal to call one.“Every other day, there is a case being reported … about a missing person in this country,” Picard told the chiefs. “We need to act on it quickly rather than having a government remaining indifferent on the issue.”Chief Fawn Wapioke, of Iskatewizaagegan First Nation in Ontario, said an inquiry isn’t the only way to explore the issue. Wapioke brought forward the resolution calling for adequate support allowing women’s councils to drive the discussion at the roundtable.Women need to lead the discussion into missing and murdered Indigenous women, she said. That conversation can happen at a gathering of neighbours or a national roundtable meeting, Wapioke said.“We can’t have that paternalistic approach where somebody else tells us what’s good to us,” Wapioke said. “It needs to be facilitated and led by the women.“We’re all impacted. We’re all affected by what has happened and what’s been happening. That’s our future.”The Conservative government has repeatedly rejected calls for an inquiry, while the NDP and Liberals have promised to call one if either forms government after the next election.Perry Bellegarde, who was elected national chief, said Tuesday he would continue to fight for a national inquiry to examine all the factors that contribute to missing and murdered Indigneous women.“It’s homelessness. It’s poverty. It’s all those things we need to address,” he told delegates. “I’m going to push hard for that.”It’s not immediately clear if he was one of the chiefs who voted for a roundtable.Grand Chief David Harper, who represents Manitoba northern First Nations and is related to Rinelle, said Tuesday the teen is coming to grips with what she now represents to so many. At first, Harper said, the teen was reluctant to speak, but “now she is starting to understand why she has to speak out.”Elders have told Rinelle that she has been given “a gift,” he said.“A gift for those who cannot speak for themselves, those who have passed on,” Harper said. “You’re the voice for them.“This is why she is doing what she has to do now. Even though she didn’t want it, it is given to her.”– with files from The Canadian Press
CAIRO- Locked in a crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood since president Mohamed Morsi’s ouster, Egypt has launched a diplomatic offensive against the movement’s foreign backers armed with funds from its old foes.In their first salvo soon after Morsi was toppled, the military-installed rulers took aim at Qatar — the only Gulf monarchy that openly supported the Brotherhood — by closing the Egyptian channel of Al-Jazeera television.The authorities also detained some journalists working in Cairo for the Doha-based network. In addition, officials said Cairo was willing to return to Qatar funds given to Egypt during the Morsi presidency.But the main confrontation for the new authorities is a diplomatic one that has developed with Turkey.On Sunday, Cairo expelled Ankara’s ambassador after Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan condemned the repression of Morsi’s supporters.The tussle began soon after Egyptian security forces broke up two camps of Morsi supporters on August 14 in Cairo, in what was the bloodiest episode in Egypt’s modern history.A day later both Cairo and Ankara recalled their respective ambassadors, but while Ankara later sent its envoy back to Egypt, Cairo’s ambassador to Turkey stayed at home.On Sunday, the two countries went a step further by reducing their diplomatic ties to the level of charges d’affaires.Karim Bitar, a Paris-based analyst, said the row stems from “increasing Egyptian nationalism and bitter regional setbacks for Turkey, including in Syria, which has seen it lose influence” in the region.‘Coup accepted in name of realism’For Shadi Hamid, research director at the Brookings Doha Center, “Egypt’s ruling military leaders are clearly not tolerating any backing to the Muslim Brotherhood, either inside the country or outside.”“Gulf countries like Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the UAE have provided billions in aid to Egypt which is giving it the degree of latitude” in its diplomatic tactics which has even seen Cairo returning part of Qatari funds, he said.Saudi Arabia and Kuwait announced they would give $9 billion to Egypt just days after Morsi’s ouster on July 3.They even promised to make up for any shortage of military assistance Cairo normally gets from the United States.In October, Washington suspended its annual $1.3 billion military aid to Cairo amid repeated criticisms of Egypt’s deadly crackdown on Islamists.US officials, however, have refused to term Morsi’s ouster as a “coup.”The United Arab Emirates, which strongly backs Egypt’s new rulers, also announced it would provide Cairo with $4.9 billion.Hamid, the Brookings analyst, said Cairo’s public position on the United States or Europe was purely “rhetoric”, with both Washington and Brussels “unwilling to push for any confrontation with Egypt.”“They don’t have that political will,” he said.Bitar said many countries had already accepted what has happened in Egypt.“Most other countries, apart from traditional supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood like Turkey and Qatar, have taken note of the new Egyptian situation and acknowledged the coup in the name of realism and due to their basic hostility towards political Islam,” he said.Washington too is slowly stepping back from its earlier stance, with US Secretary of State John Kerry recently accusing the Brotherhood of “stealing the revolution” of 2011 that ousted long-time ruler Hosni Mubarak.For Bitar the real challenge to Egypt is not any diplomatic isolation but the gradual loss of funds from abroad as “some Gulf countries have warned that the economic aid given to Egypt was emergency assistance and not intended to be a steady financial backing.”“Going forward, the challenges for Egypt will probably be more economic rather than making the legitimacy of the new authorities acceptable internationally.”Cairo University professor Mustafa Kamel al-Sayyed said it was this that made him feel diplomatic tensions with Ankara were only “temporary.”Sayyed said Cairo was unlikely to aggravate ties with Qatar “where hundreds of thousands of Egyptians are working as expatriates because ultimately it could be those employees who pay the price.”
Rabat – Ethiopian journalist Omna Taddele reported that international referee Bamlak Tessema has forgiven the President of Morocco’s Football Federation, Fouzi Lekjaa, after a complaint made by the Ethiopian Football Federation (EFE). The EFE claimed that Lekjaa had physically assaulted Ethiopian referee Bamlak Tessema after the CAF Cup final between the Egyptian team Al Zamalek and Moroccan football club RS Berkane in May.Taddele quoted the referee on his Twitter as saying: “I want to focus on my refereeing career. I don’t want to consume much of my time in going between offices in search of disciplinary action. So without any third-party influence, I forgive him (Fouzi Lekjaa),” Tessema said. Earlier this month, rumors went viral that the African Confederation of Football (CAF) had suspended Lekjaa in response to the complaints from EFE.On July 9, Morocco’s Football Federation issued a statement to refute the rumors.FRMF described rumors of Lekjaa’s suspension as “false information,” adding that “the CAF discipline commission will be holding a meeting on the matter with M. Lekjaa in the upcoming days.”The EFE accused Lekjaa of beating Tessema with a head butt in an “aggressive and forceful manner.”The statement also accused the RS Berkane players of harassing the referee.
A spokeswoman for the Great White North Franchisee Association, which represents some Tim Hortons shop owners, said the group had no comment on the latest incident.Meanwhile, Ontario Labour Minister Kevin Flynn said he was struggling to understand why some Tim Hortons franchisees would court “reputational risk” by taking actions that hurt employees.The minimum wage policy is popular with the majority of Ontario residents and most businesses are implementing it without complaint, he said.“This whole rearguard action by some individuals seems to be contrary to the wishes of the people of Ontario and contrary to the spirit of the changes in the first place,” he said. “Even the harshest business critic hasn’t said to me that ‘I believe people should work or live in poverty.”‘Flynn said he would still welcome further discussions with small business owners about the policy but said Wynne was right to criticize the franchisees for such actions.“If they wanted to come in and have a chat as to how they might get through this, we would have been happy to sit down with them,” he said. “They didn’t have to take it out on a group of people that are making less than $15 an hour. That just seems cruel.”Rallies were planned in cities across the country Friday against Tim Hortons franchisees who slash workers’ benefits and breaks in light of Ontario’s minimum wage increase.Organizers behind the protest campaign, dubbed Fight for $15 and Fairness, have said the demonstrations were not about the franchise owners themselves, but rather to pressure their parent company.Tim Hortons has said individual franchisees are responsible for setting employee wages and benefits, while complying with applicable laws. But some franchisees argue the corporation, which controls prices, should help owners grappling with the mandated wage hike by allowing them to raise prices.— with files from Peter Cameron TORONTO — Ontario’s premier is double-doubling down on her criticism of Tim Hortons franchisees who cut worker benefits amid the province’s minimum wage hike, saying a couple that own a trio of coffee shops east of Toronto shouldn’t use employees as pawns to push back against her government’s actions.Kathleen Wynne posted a statement on social media Friday that linked to a report about apparent benefits cuts at certain Tim Hortons locations in Whitby, Ont., and Ajax, Ont.In a letter to employees being circulated on social media, franchisees Jason and Susan Holman tell workers that changes must be made as a result of the new “substantial, mandatory raise” they will be receiving. If the employees take issue with those changes, they should call Wynne, the letter says.Tim Hortons protests expand beyond Ontario, with 50 rallies planned across Canada FridayMost Ontarians back minimum wage hike, say it will benefit the economyTim Hortons getting ‘dragged through the mud’ and iconic brand isn’t doing anything to stop it“I encourage you to let her know how your workplace will change as a result of her new law and that you will not vote Liberal in the coming Ontario election in June 2018,” the note says.Wynne said the situation was “not acceptable.”“When I said franchise owners should take their fight to me, I didn’t mean they should use their employees as pawns,” Wynne wrote in a post on Twitter. “I’m happy to talk to any business owner about the minimum wage but taking it out on employees is not fair and not acceptable.”Jason Holman said he had “absolutely no comment” when reached by phone Friday afternoon at a Whitby Tim Hortons.Earlier this month, Wynne accused the children of Tim Hortons’ founders, who own a pair of franchises in Cobourg, Ont., of “bullying” their employees by cutting paid breaks and benefits in response to the wage hike. She said if Ron Joyce Jr., whose father co-founded the coffee shop chain, was opposed to the Liberal government’s decision to raise the minimum wage, he should have picked a fight with her, not the workers.Ontario’s minimum wage rose on Jan. 1 to $14 an hour from $11.60. It will jump to $15 in Jan. 1, 2019.Taking it out on employees is not fair and not acceptableWynne

OSU won, 4-3.Credit: Alice Bacani / BuckeyeTV news directorThe Ohio State men’s tennis team has come out of the month of March looking like a lion. After identifying themselves as kings of the Big Ten, the Buckeyes are now ranked number one in the nation for the second time this season.Playing on the road Friday and Sunday against Minnesota and Wisconsin, respectively, the Buckeyes (23-2, 8-0) solidified their spot atop the ITA rankings.Against the Badgers (9-11, 1-6) Sunday, the second and third doubles teams got off to fast starts to earn the point for the Buckeyes.Redshirt-junior Kevin Metka and freshman Herkko Pollanen defeated junior Michael Sinha and sophomore Jakhongir Jalalov, 8-4, while redshirt-junior Hunter Callahan and redshirt-sophomore Chris Diaz crushed sophomore Frederik Strabo and freshman Elliott Sprecher, 8-2.Moving to singles play, Callahan and redshirt-freshman Ralf Steinbach were off first after dominating the back end of the Badgers’ lineup.Callahan defeated Strabo 6-1, 6-0 and Steinbach beat Sinha 6-3, 6-3.Senior Peter Kobelt clinched the match for the Buckeyes off with a 7-5, 6-1 win over sophomore Alexander Kokorev. Kobelt, ranked No. 8 in the country for singles, had lost his previous two matches, but came out strong on Sunday.“A whole lot of tennis is just forgetting about the past and that was my goal (Sunday),” Kobelt said Sunday. “Just try to play good tennis and I was able to do that (Sunday). The results come after that. I was able to get a win … hopefully the wins keep coming. You can only prepare to play good tennis, not win or lose.”Metka, Pollanen and Diaz all won in straight sets as well to sweep all matches and give the Buckeyes the 7-0 win.Friday against the Gophers (9-9, 3-3) the number one doubles team of Kobelt and Steinbach got in on the action along with Callahan and Diaz to give the Buckeyes the doubles point.Kobelt and Steinbach defeated juniors Leandro Toledo and Eric Frueh 8-7 (7-2) while Callahan and Diaz beat junior Mathieu Froment and sophomore Ruben Weber 8-5.In singles, Steinbach and Callahan were off first this time after winning their respective matches.Steinbach took down freshman Jeremy Lynn 6-1, 6-1 and Callahan beat senior Juan Pablo Ramirez 6-3, 6-1.Kobelt was upset by Toledo 6-1, 7-6 (7-5), but shortly after, Metka defeated Frueh 6-3, 7-6 (7-5) to give the Buckeyes the match.A win by Pollanen and loss by Diaz made the final score 5-2.Next the Buckeyes are scheduled for a big non-conference road test at No. 14 Kentucky Wednesday. The two teams played each other Feb. 7, with the Buckeyes winning 4-0.The match against the Wildcats in Lexington, Ky., is set to begin at 2 p.m.

Thursday 16 Feb 2017, 12:01 AM The Taoiseach and Paschal Donohoe, visiting the north inner city to meet with local community leaders last July Source: RollingNews.ieA REPORT DISCUSSING ways and means of regenerating Dublin’s north inner city is to be launched today.The Mulvey report, compiled by former head of the Workplace Relations Commission Kieran Mulvey, was first commissioned last July in the wake of a run of gangland killings in the city centre as the Hutch-Kinahan gangland feud caught fire.Taoiseach Enda Kenny made a number of public appearances in the north inner city at that time and made a commitment towards a full regeneration of the area.However, in the run up to the report’s publication rumours that all is not well as regards its recommendations have come to the fore.Gossip has spread that problems have been forecasted ahead of the launch, which is due to take place at Sheriff Youth Club this evening at 6.15pm.Local community group the North Inner City Community Coalition only heard tell of where the launch was to take place at about 4pm yesterday.Tough weekSources within the Taoiseach’s department have indicated that the delay in inviting community groups and the media has less to do with government nerves regarding the report’s context and more to do with “the week that’s in it” concerning the Taoiseach’s trials and tribulations with regard to the ongoing Maurice McCabe situation.That is as may be, but such a defence inadvertently gives lie to the fears that had long been held in the community since the report’s announcement – that it was more to do with positive exposure for the Taoiseach than with any true concern on his part for an urban community that has been through the mill.The lack of advance notice as to when and where the launch would be happening has, understandably, left community groups unsure of where they stand, although government sources moved to allay such fears saying that “full engagement” with all groups will be the order of the day at the launch itself.Mystery surrounds whether or not the Rutland Street National School building is to be refurbished – a key commitment on the part of the Taoiseach.Just two weeks ago Sinn Féin’s Mary Lou McDonald, local representative for the area, accused the government of performing “a u-turn” regarding Rutland Street, and suggested that locals were worried that the site had been earmarked for private development.While the Taoiseach earlier this week said that the school would be developed, and that Fitzgibbon Street Garda Station would likewise be reopened (another key promise), he acknowledged that the estimated cost of the school refurbishment had jumped from €2 million to €12 million. Kenny and Kieran Mulvey (second right) addressing the media last July Source: RollingNews.ieMulvey himself had informally presented some of his proposals to the public two weeks ago. At that time, a rebranding or renaming of the area was mooted, but locals were more concerned about the fact housing did not appear to be on the agenda, given the ongoing homeless crisis currently being seen, the worst in the history of the state.“The biggest gap was housing,” says local councillor Éilis Ryan regarding that presentation. “Unless there’s a radical shift in approach I don’t see how that can be taken seriously.”This report would be very, very misguided if it didn’t mention housing.‘Damp squib’“The report has taken twice the length of time to prepare as intended,” says Labour councillor Joe Costello, adding that Mulvey’s recent presentation “gave only the broad generalities and was devoid of specifics”.(It) will be a damp squib unless it contains a structured plan, a detailed budget and strict timelines for delivery. The local community must be included as stakeholders in the decision-making process.“We’ve heard contradictory reports, first that everything was greater than expected, then that it was totally in line with projections,” says Ryan, who says she will “reserve judgement” on the report until she sees it.“The Taoiseach made a commitment to Rutland Street, the council has said that it won’t be developed. No-one else has stumped up the money so it’s anyone’s guess,” she said, adding that a clear promise had been made to locals that a follow-up draft of the report would be distributed to the community ahead of any launch, something that did not happen.There was a sense from the community that Mr Mulvey had chosen to ignore the core issues driving inequality in the area – lack of decent public housing and jobs, and gentrification of working class communities – and had instead focussed on business-friendly window dressing initiatives, such as rebranding the north inner city.She added that until yesterday evening it had seemed that no formal invitation for community leaders or elected representatives would be forthcoming, adding that if that had happened it would have brought “into question the credibility of the entire initiative”.Read: ‘Admin error’ that led to McCabe allegations was not reported as HSE data protection breachRead: Ireland is being taken to court over waste water by the European Commission http://jrnl.ie/3241496 Is everything ok with the government’s proposed regeneration of Dublin’s north inner city?

‘Street Fighter V’ and ‘Mortal Kombat 11’ Get Ne…‘Teppen’ Is Capcom vs. Card Games Street Fighter V had a troubled launch back in 2016, to say the least. While the game’s core mechanics were exceptional, its lack of significant content drove away all but the most hardcore fighting game players. Over the past two years, Capcom has slowly added new characters and modes in an attempt to revitalize the title. Now with Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, we finally have an entry that’s truly worth playing.This update’s biggest feature is the titular Arcade Mode. Capcom could have easily just included a standard arcade mode where players face down a series of opponents before taking on a final boss. Instead of a single arcade mode, the game has six different branches, with each one representing a different Street Fighter game.Each branch only has characters from a specific title. You can’t play as Guile in the Street Fighter 1 branch, for example. The characters also look appropriate for each era. This means Ryu has red hair in Street Fighter 1 and Street Fighter Alpha. The branches also have each of the game’s music, albeit remixed. There are even classic bonus stages where players must destroy dropping barrels. This mode is bursting with nostalgia.AdChoices广告What’s interesting about Arcade Mode is that it has divergent paths for each branch. Players are given the option of choosing what opponents they’ll face next. Some foes are more challenging and reward additional points. However, going up against weaker fighters potentially opens up paths which offer alternate endings. There are over 200 endings to unlock. They’re nothing more than still images with some text. However, given the relative brevity of each arcade path (roughly 10-20 minutes), players will feel incentivized to unlock them all.One of Street Fighter V’s most lauded features was V-triggers. V-triggers were different for each character, which meant that some were better than others. Now, every character has access to a second V-trigger. Some of these, like Ken’s fiery Shoryuken or Chun-Li’s energy attack, are rather stylish and devastating. Players who’ve mastered the roster will no doubt appreciate having a new tool to incorporate into their repertoire. It certainly livens up the already excellent gameplay.Team Battle Mode lets players pit two teams of five characters against one another in a tournament-like setting. This is a perfect mode for local multiplayer. Extra Battle Mode gives players a set of unique challenges to overcome. The trick here is that one must spend Fight Money in order to participate. Some challenges are insanely hard and players could potentially lose a good deal of precious FM trying to complete them. Those with sufficient enough skill can earn more FM than they originally put in. This mode feels like gambling in some respects, but it’s not as egregious as loot boxes.I’ve been a Street Fighter fan since 1991 so it brings me great joy to see the fifth installment finally live up to the legacy of the franchise. Even smaller details like an updated UI and new character galleries make the entire package that much more appealing. Additional characters are coming by way of the game’s third season. It’s good to know Capcom will continue to bring additions to a game that is now a complete package. With Arcade Edition, Street Fighter V is officially one of this generation’s best fighting games. This is how it should have been all along.Check out sister site PC Mag for their full review of Street Fight V (for PC). Stay on target Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
Rolls Royce Group has been named the large organisation UK employees would most like to work for in the Global Randstad Award 2016.The employer branding survey, which had 200,000 global respondents across 25 countries, ranked British Airways as the second most attractive large employer, with Marks and Spencer coming in third.Respondents were asked to rate the attractiveness of their country’s largest employers to create the list, with 8,100 respondents from the UK contributing their answers.The research also found that Google is the employer brand that respondents would most like to work for in India and Switzerland, BMW was named winner of the Global Randstad Award 2016 in Germany, Ikea in Sweden, and IBM in Spain, with the Walt Disney Company claiming top place in the United States.The organisations named in the top 20 most attractive large employers in the UK are:Rolls Royce GroupBritish AirwaysMarks and SpencerBMWJaguar Land RoverBootsBAE SystemsMondelez InternationalVirgin MediaPricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC)DiageoSainsbury’sPhilipsAlstomAstraZenecaCarnival UKNextGlaxoSmithKlineFordDebenhamsJacques van den Broek, chief executive officer at Randstad, said: “In the UK, it’s clear that the winner of the Randstad Award, the Rolls Royce Group, has an almost timeless appeal and a brand that is rooted in the country’s heritage and national identity.“Much the same could be said of British Airways and Marks and Spencer. But the largest companies need to beware the potential disconnect between what prospective employees look for in an employer and what they perceive the biggest employers to offer.”
Senators have a list of demands for Google. Future Publishing/Getty Images Ten Democratic senators, including presidential hopefuls Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, have sent a letter to Google urging the tech giant to stop its “anti-worker practices.” The letter, dated July 25 and addressed to Google CEO Sundar Pichai, said the company’s 121,000 contract and temporary workers should be promoted to full-time status. Google’s business model relies heavily on contract and temporary workers, so much so that the population is larger than its full-time employees, Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio said in the letter obtained by The New York Times on Monday. Google’s temps and contractors outnumber full-time employees by 19,000 people.The senators’ demands for the workers also include prohibiting financial disincentives, wage and benefit parity, limit on the use of independent contractors and temporary workers to temporary or non-core work, prohibition of mandatory nondisclosure agreements, elimination of all noncompete clauses in contracts, and Google’s acceptance of liability for any workplace violations that occur with independent contractors or temp workers. The senators requested that Google respond before Aug. 9. The company responded Monday. “We are proud to create economic opportunities for both the people we employ directly and our extended workforce of vendors, temporary staff and independent contractors, and believe that our practices in this regard accord with the highest industry standards,” says a letter sent by Eileen Naughton, vice president of people operations, to the senators. “Respectfully, we strongly disagree with any suggestion that Google misuses independent contractors or temporary workers.” In the letter, Google said it engages “only a handful” of independent contractors when it wants to bring in highly specialized expertise. The company also said its temporary worker population makes up 3% of its total workforce. Along the same lines, vendors, which Google says accounts for the majority of its extended workforce, are hired for specialized uses too. “Being a temporary worker is not intended to be a path to employment at Google, and because we want to be clear and upfront, this is a part of our written policies and the training that all Google employees managing temporary staff must take,” Naughton said in the letter.In May, a group of temps who work on Google Assistant alleged wage theft against the tech giant. The group said Google pressured its contractors to work overtime without extra pay. After an internal complaint, Google fired the executive in charge of the project. In April, Google said it’d require the companies that supply the search giant with temporary and contract workers to provide them full benefits. The benefits would include health care, a $15 minimum wage and paid parental leave. The change came the same day 900 Google workers signed a letter demanding better treatment of the company’s temps, vendors and contractors. In its Aug. 5 letter, Google said these policies will go into effect at the beginning of 2020. The company said it expects the majority of its temporary staff and vendors to be covered under the standard by mid-2020.

A new study theorizes that there could be more frequent and more violent storms accompanied by increased flooding and erosion in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta over the next 50 to 100 years due to climate change. The study by researchers from the U.S. Geological Survey and the University of Alaska used remote sensing technology along with traditional knowledge and observations from local Native people.Download AudioAlaska scientists used satellite images to look through clouds during storms and for the first time could see how far tidal flooding on the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta extended inland. It was much farther than they imagined.A new study by Alaska researchers says more, big, fall storms like one tracking across the Bering Sea toward Western Alaska are in the future for the Y-K Delta. (Courtesy of National Weather Service)“It’s really extensive, it can go just about 20 miles inland during these really large storm events. So it covers a very large portion of the outer Delta,” said Jorgenson.That’s Torre Jorgenson, a landscape ecologist and adjunct professor at the University of Alaska Fairbanks and co-author of the study. Scientists examined storm-flooding events in the Bering Sea region of western Alaska from 1913 to 2011 and found that the largest events occurred in autumn and were associated with high tides and strong southwest winds. The data allowed them to map and document the extent of the region’s flooding for the first time. Jorgenson’s projections show sea level could rise 1-3 feet in the region over the next 100 years and that the region will likely see an increase in the frequency of flooding in coastal areas to a monthly basis.“The study also looked at the retreat of sea ice”, Jorgenson says, because it dampens the affects of storm surges in the winter. A delay of freeze-up of the Bering Sea during the winter could allow big storms and significant surges to extend into December and January. Dr. Craig Ely is a Research Wildlife Biologist with the U.S. Geological Survey and co-author of the study.“Over a couple of days what happens is the tide comes up and then the wind pushes the tide inland even more. And then the winds are so high the tide doesn’t get a chance to leave and so the water just basically builds up over a couple of days. You know I’ve been out in some of the smaller storms when we’ve been kind of stranded out there and there’s just no low tide, it just keeps getting higher and higher,” said Ely.Winter storms could have huge impacts: freshwater habitats converting to salt water, heavy sediment smothering vegetation, low lying permafrost plateaus collapsing, and villages eroding away.81-year-old Leo Moses, of Chevak, was born about 30 miles South in Kashunik where he remembers a huge flood changed everything.“And then after the flood had gone, for some years, the village itself started to sink. I think it was that the permafrost underneath the village was melting so it had nothing to hold it up and it started sinking it,” Moses.The flood forced the village to move to old Chevak in the mid 1940s when Moses was about 7. The BIA then moved the village to what is now Chevak. Moses says he has no doubt he’s seeing climate change.“Yeah, I’m seeing climate change every year. Man, the permafrost is going. Eventually we won’t have any permafrost. Ice up north, the ones that never used to melt start melting and there’s more water. What kind of future we have, I have no slightest idea,” said Moses.Jorgenson points to the village Newtok, the first modern western Alaska village to initiate their own relocation, to Nelson Island, due to climate change. Jorgenson says warming temperatures and increased flooding will impact the Y-K region in his lifetime.“I’m anticipating that most of the permafrost in this region will disappear in the next 30-50 years and storm surges help accelerate this loss by killing the vegetation,” said Jorgenson.Both Ely and Jorgenson say their work provides a baseline on which more science can build. The findings of the study are in the most recent issue of the journal, Arctic.
For the first time ever, there’s some cell service along the Dalton Highway. GCI launched coverage late last month in the Coldfoot area.Listen nowCompany spokeswoman Heather Handyside said service is available in the vicinity of a tower constructed near mile 175 of the Dalton.”We just completed a $500,000 cellular tower, and our customers on that area of the highway, probably about a 15-mile stretch around the tower, will be able to access calls, texts, and also 3G data services,” Handyside said.Handyside says the tower is the first of several GCI is planning to construct over the next year and a half to two years, to extend coverage along the 415-mile-long road between Livengood and Deadhorse. The highway, which crosses the Yukon River and Arctic Circle, is a popular tourist route, as well as year round supply conduit for North Slope oilfields.”I believe this is the longest stretch of highway in America, without cell coverage, so this will be a huge improvement for public safety for users of the highway, both travelers and the trucking companies who use it,” Handyside said. “I think there’s over 250 trucks a day at times on the highway, so its busy.”Mobile communication along the Dalton Highway, or Haul Road, is currently primarily via CB radio and sat phone. Handyside said the addition of cell service along the Dalton is part of $30 million GCI is spending to expand coverage statewide.Correction: This story previously misquoted Heather Handyside as saying the tower was $5,000. It’s actually $500,000.
Share Patrick Semansky/AP FileIn this Nov. 12, 2018, file photo, Cardinal Daniel DiNardo of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, listens to a reporter’s question during a news conference at the USCCB’s annual fall meeting in Baltimore.As Cardinal Daniel DiNardo prepares to lead a crucial meeting of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops on how to deal with abuse cases, a survivor advocacy group is asking for his resignation over the alleged mishandling of several cases that have occurred in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston.Members of the Houston chapter of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP) plan to hold a rally at the Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart in downtown Houston, to demand that DiNardo steps down as head of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.Alvaro ‘Al’ Ortiz/Houston Public MediaMichael Norris, leader of the Houston chapter of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP).In an interview with Houston Matters, Michael Norris, who leads SNAP in Houston, said DiNardo “doesn’t have the leadership” to head the USCCB and he lacks the “moral authority” because of several alleged local cases of sex abuse in which, according to the advocacy group, he has shown leniency toward accused priests.Norris talked about the alleged abuse cases by Manuel La Rosa-Lopez a former priest at Conroe’s Sacred Heart Church, and other cases involving Reverend John T. Keller at Prince of Peace Catholic Community in northwest Houston and Father Jesus Suarez, who worked at Houston’s St. Philip of Jesus Catholic Church. Suarez also served at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Conroe.Latest accusationNorris also pointed at the latest allegation against DiNardo. It was made last week by Laura Pontikes, a Houston construction executive. She says the cardinal allowed Monsignor Frank Rossi, who for a time was second in command at the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, to move to another parish after she reported that he lured her into a sexual relationship. “He’s part of the problem, he’s not part of the solution,” Norris said. “It’s time for him to step down and allow someone to get in there who can actually take care of the problem.”The archdiocese has said it acted proactively in these cases by suspending the priests and ordering them to undergo therapy, and is cooperating with law enforcement.Archdiocese respondsOn Monday afternoon, the archdiocese sent out a statement saying DiNardo “will not resign from anything” and, instead, “will continue working with like-minded reformers at all levels of the Church to fight the evil of abuse in all its forms.”The statement added that, as president of the USCCB, the cardinal has shown an “aggressive leadership” that has helped lay the foundation for a recent decree by Pope Francis making bishops directly accountable either for acts of sexual abuse or efforts to cover such behavior up.“Here at home,” the archdiocese added, “Cardinal DiNardo has also acted swiftly and justly in removing priests from active ministry each time he was presented with credible evidence of sexual abuse or inappropriate behavior.”Baltimore meetingThe meeting of the Catholic Bishops will take place in Baltimore starting Tuesday. The bishops will be guided by the groundbreaking new law issued by Pope Francis on May 9 that the archdiocese’s statement referenced. It requires priests and nuns worldwide to report clergy sexual abuse and cover-ups by their superiors to church authorities. It also calls for any claim of sexual misconduct or cover-up against a bishop to be reported to the Vatican and a supervisory bishop in the U.S.SNAP said the pope’s edict was a step forward, but urged the U.S. bishops to go further by requiring that church staff report their suspicions to police and prosecutors in addition to reporting internally. SNAP also said the bishops should turn over any files and records related to sex abuse to their state attorneys general for investigation, and it urged the bishops to ensure that all U.S. dioceses release lists of priests, nuns and other church staff alleged to have committed sexual abuse.Beyond the pope’s edict, the bishops will consider creating an independent, third-party reporting system to which allegations of abuse could be filed.

Berg, M.D., Ph.D., breast imaging specialist at American Radiology Services, Johns Hopkins – Green Spring Station in Lutherville, Md.Dr. Berg, the lead researcher of a large-scale clinical trial, presented results at RSNA 2009, providing the first strong evidence of the benefit of annual screening ultrasound for women with dense breasts who are at elevated risk for breast cancer. In addition, the study confirmed that MRI is highly sensitive in depicting early breast cancer. “[S]ignificantly more early breast cancer can be found when MRI is performed, even after combined screening with both ultrasound and mammography,” added Dr. Berg. “However, both ultrasound and MRI increase the risk of false-positive findings.”The report noted that women who are at high risk for breast cancer need to begin screening at a younger age, because they often develop cancer earlier than women at average risk. However, women below age 50 are more likely to have dense breast tissue, which can limit the effectiveness of mammography as a screening tool. Multicenter trials have shown that MRI enables radiologists to accurately identify tumors missed by mammography and ultrasound. The American Cancer Society recommends that some groups of women with a high risk of developing breast cancer should be screened with MRI in addition to their yearly mammogram beginning at age 30. However, MRI is not for everyone. “Because MRI is a very expensive test and requires intravenous contrast, it is something we only recommend for screening the approximately two percent of women who are known or likely carriers of BRCA-1 or BRCA-2 gene mutations or have other unusual circumstances that put them at very high risk for breast cancer,” Dr. Berg said. “There are another 10 to 15 percent of women who are at some increased risk because of personal history of breast cancer, family history of breast cancer and/or dense breast tissue,” she added. “For many of these women, MRI is not currently justified, but annual ultrasound would be appropriate in addition to mammography.”The researchers studied 612 women, mean age 55 years, at elevated risk of breast cancer enrolled at 14 sites in the American College of Radiology Imaging Network (ACRIN) 6666 trial funded by the Avon Foundation and the National Cancer Institute. Women underwent baseline screening mammography and ultrasound with follow-up exams at 12 and 24 months and then a single, contrast-enhanced MRI at 24 months.Sixteen women were diagnosed with breast cancer. Twelve of the cancers were invasive, and four were ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). Over the course of the study, 50 to 56 percent of cancers were shown on mammography. Adding ultrasound allowed detection of 70 to 94 percent of cancers. Adding MRI allowed for detection of additional cancers at their earliest stage.The study also found that supplemental screening with ultrasound or MRI significantly increased the risk of false-positive findings, leading to unnecessary biopsies in some women.“It is important that women are advised of the increased potential of undergoing an unnecessary biopsy as a result of screening with ultrasound or MRI,” Dr. Berg indicated, “but we hope this study motivates women and their doctors to learn more about their risk factors and to consider supplemental screening in addition to mammography where indicated.”Coauthors are Zheng Zhang, Ph.D., Jean B. Cormack, Ph.D., Roberta A. Jong, M.D., Richard G. Barr, M.D., Ph.D., Daniel E.

0 Comments Share The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires There has also been some offseason buzz about whether the Notre Dame product has already supplanted long-time Cardinals star Larry Fitzgerald as the team’s No. 1 receiving target. Fitzgerald had almost 100 fewer receiving yards in 2013, but Floyd insisted there isn’t a defined first option or second option on the team’s offense right now.“I just like to go out there and play,” he said. “We all work together for the same common goal, and that’s to win ball games.” – / 32 “Last year, training camp was terrible,” Floyd said, chuckling, but didn’t really elaborate why. “But having a year under our belt under BA’s offense, everything comes faster. I’m really more comfortable in it now. You don’t have to really, you know, think; you can just go and play. And I can play fast and (not) have to think so much. “So that year two really will help me out, plus, I think, also the whole offense.”Floyd — who caught 65 passes for five touchdowns and more than 1,000 yards last year — also should benefit from having a familiar face under center this year. Carson Palmer is coming off a strong second half of the 2013 season, and Floyd said the chemistry between himself and the starting quarterback is “getting better.”“Once you get on the same track as Carson, things kind of flow very (well),” he said about all the team’s receivers. “So that’s where we’re going now. That’s where we started off at. And we’re just getting better from here.”The 6-foot-2 receiver also talked the optimism he has coming off a breakout campaign.“It builds (confidence) tremendously,” he said. “And I’m glad that my quarterback has a lot of confidence in me, knowing that I can make plays on the ball and make plays for him, even though he might be in a jam at some time.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Michael Floyd played for two different head coaches in his first two NFL seasons.However, the team’s 2013 leader in receiving yards heads into his third season in a familiar system, as Bruce Arians and Harold Goodwin return as head coach and offensive coordinator, respectively, for the Cardinals.Prior to the third day of Cardinals training camp Monday, the 24-year-old Floyd talked about the second year under Arians’ system compared to the first.
