Cannabis NB changes images on its website after concerns were raised

Posted on

first_imgFREDERICTON – Cannabis NB has made some changes to its website after concerns were raised by Health Canada last week.The Crown agency came under scrutiny for its product descriptions and pictures of people smiling, posing for selfies and holding yoga poses — images that may violate federal regulations.In a statement, Health Canada spokesman Andre Gagnon said the department is trying to raise awareness about the Cannabis Act and its restrictions on promotion.“In a few cases, Health Canada has reached out to … licence holders to bring concerns to their attention, or to collect information and gain a better understanding of some of the facts pertaining to their promotional activities,” he said.Cannabis NB has removed the original pictures and replaced them with images of chairs, a book and painting supplies.Spokeswoman Marie-Andree Bolduc says the agency did not receive any specific direction from Health Canada.“But based on this conversation and discussion, we made adjustments to some images on the website,” she said. “We will be generally reviewing the website and likely be making a few adjustments in the language as well.”In Ottawa, Health Minister Ginette Petitpas Taylor said her department is working with the province to make sure the website meets federal standards.“There are a number of changes that have already been made,” she said in French when asked about the snafu. “Changes have already been made, and we continue to do this work together to ensure that they understand the regulations.”The website includes categories such as “Connect,” “Refresh” and “Discover,” which the agency has described as educational tools for customers.According to figures released Wednesday, Cannabis NB recorded roughly $950,000 dollars in sales during its first 48 hours in business, and more than $71,000 of that revenue was generated by online sales.Cannabis NB President Brian Harriman says the sales figures were in line with expectations.He said the agency sold out of some products, but he said other provinces had the same problem.“Retail stores in communities bordering other provinces, such as Sackville and Campbellton, have seen higher-than-expected demand because of customers coming from other provinces,” Harriman said. “Cannabis NB will continue to closely monitor inventory throughout our stores and work with suppliers to get inventory to normal levels.”last_img read more

General Motors moving ahead with salaried job cuts says modest number in

Posted on

OSHAWA, Ont. — General Motors says it has largely completed salaried job cuts in Canada as part of a wider restructuring.The company said last October that it would offer buyouts to 18,000 white-collar workers across its North American operations as part of cost-cutting efforts.GM Canada spokeswoman Jennifer Wright says the salaried employee reductions in Canada have mostly been accomplished already through voluntary incentivized packages.Wright says the company expects to have a “modest” number of other salaried reductions completed shortly but declined to provide specifics.U.S. media reports said the company planned to lay off at least 4,000 salaried workers in North America starting Monday.At the time of the announced restructuring, GM had about 2,000 salaried employees in Canada as part of about 50,000 salaried workers in North America.The Canadian Press read more

UN study tackles violence against women in Arab region using economic model

Posted on

Dr. Naglaa Al-Adly, Representative of Egypt’s National Council of Women, speaks to the media wearing the Taa Marbouta campaign pin on her jacket. Photo: ESCWA/Daniela Abraham “We use this letter as the secret of our power as women,” Dr. Al-Adly explained. “We’re stressing the idea to not be afraid, fight for your rights, be strong, we are behind you.” ‘Taa Marbouta’ is added to words that are feminine to denote grammatical gender; it is also associated with several powerful words in the Arabic language such as ‘dignity,’ ‘power’ and ‘willingness.’ Launched one year ago by Egypt’s National Council of Women and the UN, the ‘Taa Marbouta’ campaign promotes women’s social, political and economic empowerment in the North African country. “Because it’s an Arabic letter it is also relevant to women in many other countries,” she added, indicating that the “secret” of women’s power can only be stronger when they come together. An economic model to estimate the costs of intimate partner violence – the most common form of violence against women in the Arab world – was spotlighted this week at one of the United Nations regional commissions, based in Beirut, Lebanon. “Our ultimate goal has always been to translate the findings of our studies into practical projects with a view to empowering women and enhancing their position in society,” said Mohamed Ali Alhakim, the Executive Secretary of the UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), which serves 18 Arab States. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 37 per cent of “ever married women” in the East Mediterranean region – which encompasses most Arab States – have experienced physical or sexual partner violence. Speaking at the opening of ESCWA’s Committee on Women, Dr. Alhakim noted that despite progress in developing national plans to address gender-based violence, Arab countries need to do more to end the grave violations still being perpetrated against women. To support these efforts, ESCWA and UN Women developed a regional project to estimate the cost of violence against women and use the costings as an instrument for policy reform and advocacy. “We aim to utilize it as an advocacy tool with policymakers to substantiate that if we work in a holistic manner to end violence against women, it will not only be the right thing to do, but it will also be the smart thing to do,” said Mohammad Naciri, the Director of UN-Women’s regional office in Egypt. Source: UN-Women“My heart aches when we try to quantify [the violence] because the emotional and psychological scars that women and girls live with as a result of the violence exerted on them cannot necessarily be quantified,” he continued. “That’s why I said it’s a smart thing to do, but the right thing to remember is that it’s the absolute right of every single woman and girl to end the violence against them.” According to UN-Women, the dire economic, political and security situation in many Arab countries fuels the problem given direct correlation between crises and domestic violence. During the last conflict in Gaza, intimate partner violence reportedly rose by 700 per cent due to feelings of hopelessness, humiliation, and lack of opportunities. While the drivers of violence are not contested, there are multiple approaches to costing the phenomenon. The two main methods involve estimating the cost of inaction—measuring the direct and indirect, tangible and intangible costs of violence to survivors, their families, and the community, including missed paid or unpaid work; and estimating the costs of implementing policies to prevent and address the violence – or the cost of the solution. Dr. Nata Duvvury, the Director for Global Women’s Studies at the National University of Ireland, has been working closely with ESCWA to develop the model and create this important “accountability tool.” “Direct costs have been largely focused on the costs of service provision incurred by governments to provide police stations, health services, social services, and others,” she explained. “But there is another aspect of direct costs that has not been captured very carefully across countries, which are the costs incurred by women to access services,” Dr. Duvvury stressed, noting that paying bribes is not uncommon for women in the Arab region, in addition to other fees to access physical and psychosocial support. As the eighth session of the Committee on Women inched to its end on Thursday, small pins were distributed by Dr. Naglaa Al-Adly from Egypt’s National Council of Women, featuring an Arabic letter called the Taa Marbouta. read more

Shakespeares plays inspired by his neighbours reveals historian who discovered his London

It has never been known exactly where William Shakespeare lived when he emerged onto the London theatre scene in the late 16th-century. Geoffrey Marsh, a theatre historian and director of the V&A’s Department of theatre and performance, has pinpointed the very house, north of the… However, following a decade of research, an historian has finally solved the mystery. Now, for the first time, The Telegraph can reveal exactly how the variety of his eclectic neighbours have influenced the works of the most famous writer in the English language. He was the son of a glove-maker who left his provincial medieval market town for the capital where he would become known as the world’s greatest dramatist. read more

New screen vibrators deliver efficiency design freedom

Posted on

first_imgA world leader in engineered vibration for bulk material handling has introduced a new family of electric screen vibrators for regular duty and hazardous environments.  Designed to deliver up to 7,500 kg of centrifugal force for efficient material separation, Martin® Screen Vibrators are built specifically to withstand the rigors of industrial applications and continuous use, and can run 24/7 as needed.  “With a traditional screen vibrator, the drive functions as the energy source,” explained Robert Nogaj, Martin Engineering VP of Operations and Product Management.  “The energy is transferred via structural bridge to the vibratory box which is isolated by the springs.  With our new design, the energy source is an integral part of the structural tube that can be mounted to the sides or top of a vibratory box, making it much easier for designers to engineer and manufacture new kinds of vibratory screens.” The new line of vibrators is designed and engineered in the USA and will be manufactured in most Martin Engineering facilities worldwide to facilitate short lead times and service response.  Nogaj said that the designs are likely to find utility in high frequency vibratory screens, dewatering operations, as well as processing of gold and other elements.“The new Martin Screen Vibrator is our own design,” Nogaj continued.  “We started with several models, some of them direct retrofits for the Derrick® Shaker.  But our drives are fully adjustable, so the customer has more flexibility and creativity in how the vibrators are used.  We’re now in the process of expanding the product line beyond the models engineered to retrofit OEM equipment, including a line of much larger drives,” he added.  The new vibrators can be used with Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) in ordinary and hazardous atmospheres.  Explosion-proof models are ETL/cETL/ATEX/IECex certified for hazardous duty. The versatile dual-voltage product line can be used anywhere in the world, and the eccentric weights can be adjusted with hand tools to match ‘High G’ or standard performance screens.  No adaptors are needed to fit Derrick Vibrating Screens, as these direct-replacement units can be bolted and wired to existing connections.  Designed for low maintenance, the only service required is lubrication with a standard grease gun every 2,000 hours, and the long-life bearings produce less noise than OEM oil bath bearings. Martin Screen Vibrators provide the power to sort or separate material efficiently, and the sturdy designs have been proven in demanding lab trials and field applications.  The units are manufactured to the highest quality standards, effective for use in industries where bulk materials, solids and powders are stored or processed.last_img read more

Locked up and scared woman wakes up alone in Air Canada flight

Posted on

first_imgReutersA woman experienced acute anxiety after she woke up on a ‘freezing cold’ and ‘pitch black’ Air Canada flight, hours after it landed at Toronto airport earlier this month. The carrier said they are investigating how the cabin crew left the sleeping passenger without checking.The incident involving Tiffani Adams was shared on Facebook by her friend Deanna Noel-Date on June 20. The post described how Adams got herself out of the carrier after getting locked up by the cabin crew members. “I think I’m having a bad dream bc like seriously how is this happening!” Adams wrote in the post.While the carrier confirmed the incident, it hasn’t released the findings of the investigation, reported Associated Press. “We are still reviewing this matter so we have no additional details to share, but we have followed up with the customer and remain in contact with her,” Air Canada told AP.According to the post, she found it difficult to breathe and tried to control her panic attack while attempting to “charge my phone by plugging into every USB port I could find.”Noel-Dale initially assumed that Adams was at home and experiencing bad dreams when she contacted her. It was only after Adams opened FaceTime and showed her the pitch-black cabin that she understood the situation. However, Adams claims that her phone switched off due to low battery soon after talking to her friend about the situation. Adams later got hold of a flashlight from the cockpit and made SOS symbols. After gaining no response, she opening the main cabin door and managed to get the attention of a nearby ground staff who helped her out of the plane.The passenger wrote that after an Air Canada representative asked if she was ok, she was offered a limo and hotel but she rejected the offer. She said the company later apologised and said they would investigate the matter.The incident, however, continued to affect her even after 10 days, “I haven’t got much sleep since the reoccurring night terrors and waking up anxious and afraid I’m alone locked up someplace dark,” she wrote.last_img read more

129000 Rohingyas trapped in squalid Myanmar camps

Posted on

first_imgRohingya Muslim children and elders gather at the Thet Kel Pyin camp in Rakhine state during the Eid al-Adha celebrations on 22 August 2018. Photo: AFPAbdurahim worries the lack of food, medicine and free movement is doing lasting damage to his four young children, who are among more than 129,000 Rohingya Muslims trapped in squalid camps inside Myanmar’s Rakhine state.In the grimy, rubbish-strewn alleyways of Thet Kel Pyin camp, near the state capital Sittwe, children gather around a slaughtered cow, a rare chance to eat meat on the second day of the Eid al-Adha festival.Most of the camp’s residents were forced from their homes in 2012, victims of ethnic and religious hatreds that have simmered for decades.Cut off from outside contact, their plight is rarely reported.Abdurahim, 46, fears that everyday life in the camp-split communities, restricted movement for the Rohingya and dependency on relief handouts-will shape his children forever.Aged between eight and 17, their formative years have been spent in Thet Kel Pyin, where the family arrived six years ago.“What kind of memory comes into their head? They think only one ethnicity lives like this,” Abdurahim-whose Myanmar name is Shwe Hla-told AFP.“Their vision is becoming like this.”His family’s struggle is overshadowed by the vast scale of the Rohingya refugee exodus into neighbouring Bangladesh that began one year ago.An army crackdown last August saw 700,000 of the persecuted minority flee over the border to one of the world’s largest refugee camps in violence the UN and US have likened to ethnic cleansing.Grim realityConditions in Thet Kel Pyin, witnessed during a brief visit late Wednesday on a government-steered press trip, suggested a dire need for food, education, jobs and medical services.But it is probably among the better camps in Rakhine, where government minders are willing to take media and visiting dignitaries.Visitors are denied access to other sites, like those in remote Pauktaw township where more than 22,000 eke out an existence in shelters built upon piles of garbage and excrement.Kaman Muslims live alongside the Rohingya in the camps, where many struggle with deteriorating health.“After six years here, our health is worsening,” said Thin Mya, a 64-year-old Kaman Muslim mother of four. “The rooms are so close to each other so… the health problem is getting bigger.”The first step to improving the grim reality of internally displaced Rohingya is “freedom of movement”, said Abdurahim, once a prosperous owner of a construction business in Sittwe.Myanmar says it is ready and willing to repatriate the hundreds of thousands of Rohingya who have fled to Bangladesh since last year.But it has complicated the process with bureaucracy while the refugees refuse to return without guarantees of safety, security and compensation.The UN has said conditions in Myanmar are not ripe for a safe and voluntary repatriation, especially given the desperate conditions in camps like Thet Kel Pyin, which were established after previous rounds of violence.To head off criticism, Myanmar says it will close nearly 20 of the camps in coming months.State media on Tuesday said one camp had been closed at Ni Din in the Kyauktaw area of Rakhine, following recommendations by the late United Nations secretary-general Kofi Annan released last year.But the UN’s Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs questioned whether these “so-called camp ‘closures’” were being done in the spirit of those recommendations, which emphasised an end to movement restrictions and granting the Rohingya a pathway to citizenship.“What matters most is not whether a camp is closed, but whether the displaced people in them can go home or be relocated in a process that profoundly transforms their lives,” OCHA spokesperson Pierre Peron told AFP.Myanmar’s government denies allegations of ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya, yet labels them “Bengalis” non-native to the Buddhist-majority country.It insists that any Rohingya who return from Bangladesh should take up a National Verification Card, a form of ID that falls short of citizenship and denies them full rights.“Why do we need to hold this National Verification Card?” said Abdurahim. “We have lived here for generations.”last_img read more

Modi ji you owe us answers

Posted on

first_imgNarendra Modi and those who still have faith in him, in his policies and style, have every right to feel overwhelmed over the high-octane Wembley show. They also have a right to feel proud about the fact that Modi became the first Indian to address the British Parliament. Modi and his admirers can also take pride in Modi’s stay at the country house retreat of the Prime Minister of United Kingdom—Chequers Court—to the south of Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire at the foot of the Chiltern Hills, and his first ever meeting with Queen Elizabeth-II over lunch at Buckingham Palace, where he arrived riding a Jaguar. Also Read – Gateway of criminal justiceBut, then these very people owe us answers to certain pertinent questions raised during the visit of the Prime Minister of India to the United Kingdom which houses the “mother of Parliaments”. Why is it that for the first time the Palace of Westminster in London bore a large image of India’s Prime Minister wielding a sword with a logo behind him of the symbol “Om” slowly transforming into the Swastika? Why splashed across the image were the words in bold letters “Modi not welcome”? Why did Indian activists oppose the visit of the Prime Minister of their own country by projecting an image that stayed on the British Parliament’s building for eight and a half minutes on a Sunday night? Also Read – Turning a blind eyeFor the first time an Indian Prime Minister had to face questions in his joint press conference by British media such as “Prime Minister Modi, India is becoming an increasingly intolerant place. Why?” Should we not feel deeply concerned about the fact that a responsible British newspaper—The Guardian—chose to publish an article written by a local journalist of Indian origin under the title “India is being ruled by a Hindu Taliban”? Why has the international community started to look at India with suspicious eyes in matters related to social harmony? During his performance at Wembley event, even singer Jay Sean underlined the need to respect each other’s differences. After completing his first song, he began to narrate his personal story and told the audience that his real name is Kamaljit Singh Jhooti. Moreover, the singer said he takes pride in the fact that this country has recognised his talent ignoring all the considerations for caste and creed. Why should Jay Sean feel it necessary to express such sentiments between the two romantic songs he sang on the occasion, including his most famous “Down”?Wembley could have been a great gala event for Modi’s fans. But the basics of diplomatic visits should not be allowed to be wrapped up under the heavy curtains of pop singer Sonna Rele “Every day with Love”—the title song of the film Cinderella, or the fusion by Jyotsna Srikant, Geeta Patel, and Shiamak Davar. The hard questions cannot be answered through Vidya Patel’s Kathak or Dandiya and Garba dances. The realities of diplomatic successes depend on the solid outcomes of the serious efforts made by any government and not on the decibel level of “Modi-Modi” chants. The funniest, rather insulting, part of the Wembley event was when British singer Navin Kundra sang “Bachna Ai Haseeno, Lo Mai Aagaya” just before the arrival of Modi and then tried to merge it with the songs like “Mere Desh Ki Dharti”, and Slum Dog Millionaire’s “Jai Ho”. But for the national anthem sung by Kanika Kapoor and a meaningful short speech delivered by British Prime Minister David Cameron, it would have been better if there was no Wembley event at all.Ignoring developments such as the protests held by the Nepali people can come at a huge price. It is also for the first time that our neighbours flocked the streets on foreign soil, carrying placards reading anti-India slogans. UK Chapter of Non-Resident Nepali Association (NRNA), Prabasi Nepali Manch-UK, and Nepali Janasamparka Samiti UK, among three dozen Nepali organisations, took part in the protest to express solidarity with their cause. We will be drastically failing in our diplomatic responsibilities if the sentiments strongly expressed during Modi’s UK visit by the South Asia Solidarity Group, Sikh Federation of UK, South Hall Black Sisters, Dalit Solidarity Network of UK, Indian Muslim Federation, Indian Workers Association, Muslim Parliament, and Voice of Dalit International are not addressed properly.Parallel to the notes of Wembley music there were strong doses of analytical pieces in the British media on Modi’s fast decreasing popularity, which has been proven by the outcome of Bihar Assembly elections. “The loss is more personal than a party loss,” noted The Guardian, “since Narendra Modi took a personal interest in the Bihar state Assembly polls and he almost became the face of the campaign”. The report further said, “India’s ruling party has conceded defeat in a provincial election seen as a test of the vote-winning abilities and political strategy of Modi”. Leila Nathoo of The Independent wrote, “Instead of relying on local BJP leaders to fight the election on local issues, Mr Modi, a crisply dressed, and highly skilled orator, personally took control of the campaign in the hope that his reputation and charisma would seal the victory.”The destiny of one-sixth of humanity lies in the honest efforts of making India a nation based on its true values—tolerance, inclusiveness, and equality to all. India’s destiny does not lie in gimmickries like opening up a branch of Madame Tussauds’ wax museum in New Delhi and getting a copy of the Magna Carta for touring displays in India for the 2017 cultural exchange or firecrackers in Wembley.(Author is Editor and CEO of News Views India.

Google Chrome hard reload vs normal reload

Posted on

first_imgGoogle Chrome: hard reload vs. normal reload by Martin Brinkmann on January 24, 2018 in Google Chrome – 7 commentsThe Google Chrome web browser supports multiple options when it comes to reloading or refreshing a web page.The reload button is probably the most popular choice when it comes to reloading web pages considering that it is the only option visible in the browser’s UI.But clicking on the button is not the only option that Chrome users have. The Chrome keyboard shortcuts listing over on the Google website includes two reload options for instance: normal reload and hard reload.What’s the difference between normal and hard reloads in Chrome, and is there a third option? Let’s find out.Chrome reload optionsGoogle Chrome supports three different reload functions:Normal reloadHard reloadHard reload with cache clearingNormal reload is the most straightforward function to explain. You activate it with a click on the reload button or with the keyboard shortcuts F5 or Ctrl-R.Google Chrome uses the cache of the browser in this case but will validate the cached files during page load to make sure only resources that the server returns a 304 not modified response for are loaded from cache.Hard reload is not exposed directly in the UI of the browser. You activate the function with the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-Shift-R, Shift-F5, or by holding down Shift before you activate the reload button.Chrome ignores the cache and will load all resources from the web page again.Google Chrome supports a third reload option and a somewhat hidden reload menu as well. You need to open the browser’s Developer Tools with the keyboard shortcut F12 first as it is a prerequisite for it.Right-click on the reload button afterward to display the reload menu. It includes the empty cache and hard reload option that you may use. What it does, is clear the browser cache before the hard reload is activated.You may ask yourself what benefit the clearing of the cache has as hard reloads bypass the cache. The method takes situations into account where web pages may download additional content using JavaScript or other means that are not part of the initial page load process. These resources may be cached and as a consequence may be loaded from cache even if you do a hard reload.Tip: Most web browsers support regular reloads and reloads that bypass the cache. The keyboard shortcuts mentioned above should work in most of them.UsageWhen is it appropriate to use a hard reload or a hard reload with cache clearing? Hard reloads are useful if you want that all resources are downloaded from the browser. This may be in expectation of an update, during development or corruption of the cache.Related articlesAuto Refresh Select Tabs In The Firefox Web BrowserFind out if websites get loaded from cache and how to force reloadsHow to reload in Firefox now that View Reload (Alt-v-r) is goneMozilla Firefox Cheat SheetRefresh multiple browsers with a hotkeySummaryArticle NameGoogle Chrome: hard reload vs. normal reloadDescriptionThe Google Chrome web browser supports multiple options when it comes to reloading or refreshing a web page.

The multi-modality site, which will have five radiologists, will install Viztek’s Opal-RAD Web-based PACS, Opal-RIS Web-based RIS and billing software.“We plan to read exams from multiple locations and to communicate images and reports electronically to referring physicians,” said Suresh Mody, M.D., president of Prime Radiology. He noted that in addition to CR, the center will also offer computed tomography (CT) and ultrasound exams as well as digital mammography, echocardiology and bone densitometry. “As a new center, we needed to purchase and install a large amount of technology at one time. Viztek offered us a fully integrated state-of-the-art system that fit our budget that made sense to purchase and install it immediately.” The application suite and CR will be installed fully integrated and will include a built-in voice recognition system. “Once the technology is in place, our center will be up and running,” he said. “We will not need to worry about interfacing disparate systems.”Currently, Prime Radiology is based in St. Michael’s Hospital in Newark, N.J. where it is responsible for all exam reading. Once the new center opens, the radiologists will rotate between the hospital and the new location. In the future, Mody plans to expand services by offering a range of sub-specialty exams to be read by contracted remote radiologists.
