How Roxodus nearly became Canadas own Fyre Festival

first_imgIn today’s Big Story podcast, it was going to be the biggest classic rock festival this country had ever seen. It was supposed to happen this weekend. And it died just 10 days before opening night. Now the OPP is involved and fans and vendors alike are left in the dark. This is the story of what happened to Roxodus.The lineup featured everyone from Aerosmith to Blondie to Kid Rock and Nickelback and Lynyrd Skynyrd. It was to take place at the Edenvale Airport, in a tiny Ontario community north of Toronto. The organizers initially claimed rainfall was to blame for the cancellation, but that story quickly fell apart. So what was going on in the weeks leading up to the sudden cancellation? What happened to the money? What will the OPP investigation discover? And given what we know now about organization and logistics—are would-be concertgoers lucky that this festival never actually happened?GUEST: Shawn Gibson, Barrie TodayAudio Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.You can subscribe to The Big Story podcast on Apple Podcasts, Google and Spotify.You can also find it at read more

Growing ocean acidification threatens marine life says UNbacked report

2 December 2010A new United Nations-backed report warns that unless governments cut carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, ocean acidification will continue and have wide-ranging impacts on the health of the seas and the fish living in them. A new United Nations-backed report warns that unless governments cut carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, ocean acidification will continue and have wide-ranging impacts on the health of the seas and the fish living in them.The report, entitled “The Environmental Consequences of Ocean Acidification,” was launched today by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) at the UN climate change conference in Cancún, Mexico.It confirms concerns about the effects of increased ocean acidity on the marine environment, warning that the future impact of rising emissions on the health of seas and oceans may be far greater and more complex than previously supposed.“Ocean acidification is yet another red flag being raised, carrying planetary health warnings about the uncontrolled growth in greenhouse gas emissions. It is a new and emerging piece in the scientific jigsaw puzzle, but one that is triggering rising concern,” said Achim Steiner, UNEP’s Executive Director, urging governments to take action to address the issue.“The phenomenon comes against a backdrop of already stressed seas and oceans as a result of over-fishing to other forms of environmental degradation. Thus the public might quite rightly ask how many red flags do governments need to see before the message to act gets through,” he said.Ocean acidification is the result of increasing concentrations of dissolved carbon dioxide finding their way into ocean water and lowering the water’s pH level. Such changes threaten the very survival of many marine organisms, including fish and coral, and together with other environmental effects, such as over-fishing and ocean warming, could impact massively on the marine food chain, which is a main source of protein and livelihood for billions of people.To produce the report, UNEP worked together with the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization’s (UNESCO) Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, as well as with the Plymouth Marine Laboratory and National Oceanography Centre in the United Kingdom. The report’s lead author, Dr. Carol Turley, pointed out the negative impact that rising ocean acidity was having.“We are seeing an overall negative impact from ocean acidification directly on organisms and on some key ecosystems that help provide food for billions. We need to start thinking about the risk to food security,” she said.Although the report notes that there may be some ‘winners’ within marine ecosystems, with photosynthetic life, such as seagrasses benefiting from acidification, Ms. Turley pointed out the vulnerabilities of many sea organisms.“It is clearly not enough to look at a species. Scientists will need to study all parts of the life-cycle to see whether certain forms are more or less vulnerable,” she said.Urging policy makers to cut CO2 emissions and to reduce pressure on the oceans through marine spatial planning and aquaculture, the report recommends that governments embrace the science of ocean acidification into the way they manage fisheries.Cancun read more

Salley sees no difference between Praba and Rohana

He said that anyone has a right to commemorate those killed during the war even if they are LTTE members. (Colombo Gazette)Report by Indika Sri Aravinda Muslim Tamil National Alliance leader Azath Salley says slain LTTE leader Vellupillai Prabakaran and former Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) leader Rohana Wijeweera are no different and if Wijeweera’s death can be commemorated in Sri Lanka then so should Prabakaran’s death.Speaking at a media briefing today, Azath Salley said that the Government must allow families in the North to commemorate those killed during the war, even if they are LTTE members. The police had yesterday warned that legal action will be taken against anyone holding public events in support of the LTTE. Police spokesman ASP Ruwan Gunasekera said that since the LTTE is still a banned outfit in Sri Lanka, public events cannot be held in support of its leaders or the organisation.Northern Provincial Council (NPC) member M.K. Sivajilingham had said earlier that the public have been urged to commemorate slain LTTE members on Friday to mark the LTTE heroes’ week. He said that of the Government is going to block such events then it must not allow commemoration events for Rohana Wijeweera as he was also accused of killing several innocent people. read more

Barrage of government reports on Muskrat Falls should be reviewed critics

by Sue Bailey, The Canadian Press Posted Nov 1, 2012 5:06 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email ST. JOHN’S, N.L. – A flurry of government commissioned reports supporting the proposed $7.4 billion Muskrat Falls hydro project in Labrador should be reviewed by an independent regulator, critics say.“Who is to scrutinize these reports on behalf of the people of the province?” asked St. John’s lawyer Dennis Browne, a member of the 2041 Group that includes Muskrat Falls skeptics of all political stripes.“The public is not being safeguarded in any way.”Browne was responding to a barrage of documents released this week by the province in favour of the development. They come as preparation work at the Labrador site continues apace even though the project has not been officially approved.Crown corporation Nalcor Energy and private utility Emera (TSX:EMA) of Nova Scotia plan to bring power from Labrador’s lower Churchill River to Newfoundland and Nova Scotia using subsea cables.Premier Kathy Dunderdale says Muskrat Falls is the best option for meeting future energy needs even though estimated costs are up to $7.4 billion since the project was announced two years ago at $6.2 billion.Her majority Progressive Conservative government is expected to formally approve the development in the coming weeks.Preliminary work to build a road and construction camp for the development has already begun, and Nalcor announced Thursday that excavation will start before year’s end.The latest report in favour of Muskrat Falls came Thursday from Ziff Energy Group of Calgary, which said reliance on natural gas for future energy needs would cost far more than Muskrat Falls.Natural Resources Minister Jerome Kennedy said the province spent $74,000 for the Ziff report plus $60,700 for a report by Manitoba Hydro International (MHI) that wrote off wind power as too expensive, and $245,000 on another MHI report released Tuesday. It found that Muskrat Falls would cost $2.4 billion less over 50 years than if Newfoundland relies on its oil-burning plant in Holyrood and other power sources.Kennedy dismissed as cynicism calls for more independent regulatory review. Consultants were hired by the province to give expert opinion that should not be diminished because the province paid for it, he told a news conference.“I don’t think that’s a fair criticism to attach to people because they’re paid for their work,” he said.“At the end of the day, the only independent report that would seem to satisfy the critics is one which would say that Muskrat Falls is not a good option. And, quite frankly, I haven’t seen those.”The government commissioned Ziff to study the options of piping natural gas from offshore oil sites and importing liquefied natural gas to power a power plant at Holyrood, N.L.It concludes that a subsea pipeline would be at risk from icebergs, and that new wells and equipment required offshore plus onshore infrastructure would cost $4.1 billion more than Muskrat Falls over 50 years.Buying liquefied natural gas for a small island on competitive world markets would cost at least $2.3 billion more than Muskrat Falls, it says.The government released the arm’s length report in response to critics who said it had not fully explored other power generation options.Browne says the government is relying on reports that are not the independent work of regulators working solely in the public’s interest.He said the latest numbers on Muskrat Falls must go before a transparent regulatory process such as a related review planned at the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board.Without such scrutiny, Browne says Newfoundland and Labrador ratepayers are not getting adequate oversight of a deal that will bind electricity consumers for 50 years.Members of the 2041 Group — and a long list of former politicians and public servants including former Tory premier Brian Peckford — say Muskrat Falls is a high-risk venture that relies on public funds. They have urged the province to consider incremental projects or other options to meet power needs.Browne said the Dunderdale government has shrugged off reports from both the Public Utilities Board and a joint federal-provincial environmental review panel that Muskrat Falls has not been proven to be a least-cost or even necessary option.The 2041 Group name refers to the year that the province’s contentious Upper Churchill power deal with Quebec comes to an end. The 1969 agreement to ship power from Labrador to Quebec for sale did not reflect rising energy values and has reaped about $20 billion in profits for Quebec, versus $1 billion for Newfoundland and Labrador.Gordon Weil, former director of the Maine energy office who led the national group of state energy agencies, recently wrote a paper entitled “The Muskrat Falls Hydro Project: Opportunities and Risks.”In it, he called for greater oversight.“Nalcor is part utility, serving as the principal supplier of power in the province. The relationship of any utility to its customers should be regulated. The opinion of one outside expert like Manitoba Hydro International is not a substitute for that oversight and does not offer customers enough protection.”Dunderdale brushed off Weil’s report, saying it was written for the Atlantic Institute for Market Studies which she described as right-wing.

UN calls for more funding to keep Madagascar locust plague in check

“The effects of this plague could have been devastating, but thanks to strong efforts by the Government, supported by FAO, we have succeeded in preventing these locusts from migrating even further,” said David Phiri, FAO’s Subregional Coordinator for Southern Africa. FAO and the Government of Madagascar jointly launched a three-year locust control programme in September 2013. Since the first campaign, large-scale areal operations have surveyed over 30 million hectares of land and controlled locust populations on over 1.2 million hectares.Despite those efforts, of great concern, however, is “a new challenge due to a gap in funding,” according to Mr. Phiri.So far $28 million has been donated by the Governments of Austria, Belgium, France, Italy, Japan and Madagascar, through a World Bank loan; Norway and the United States, as well as the UN Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) and the European Union. Donors such as Algeria, Mauritania and Morocco donated pesticides. Preliminary results of the first anti-locust campaign showed prevention of larger damage to crops and pastures and protection of the large rice producing regions of the country located in the centre and north. However, current funds are only sufficient to implement the first part of the second locust control campaign, which started in September 2014. With the rainy season approaching, from October 2014 onwards, the locust situation will deteriorate as temperatures and humidity during this period are ideal breeding conditions for the locust. The second and third campaigns are imperative to respectively support the decline of the plague and the return to a situation of recession.In this regard, additional support of $14.7 million is urgently needed for aerial surveys, control operations, equipment, pesticides, as well as the recruitment of key staff to carry out the second and third campaigns, according to FAO.“An immediate food crisis has been avoided,” said Mr. Phiri, stressing that “an economical and humanitarian crisis could still threaten Madagascar if the next two campaigns are not implemented in time.”Without the extra funding, efforts made during the first campaign will be largely lost and the locust plague will expand again. The context was similar in November 2010 and December 2011, when the funding for two anti-locust campaigns was not made available and as a result, the current plague developed.“We are in a position to help – we just need one last push to stop this disaster and prevent future plagues,” said Mr. Phiri.The highly destructive Malagasy Migratory Locust started in April 2012, ravaging crops and pastures from the southwest of the country toward the North. By April 2014, it had spread towards the country’s largest rice crop areas in the northwest and threatened the livelihoods of 13 million people. read more

Singapore edict criminalizing samesex relations missed opportunity – UN rights office

Speaking at a press briefing in Geneva, Rupert Colville, spokesperson for the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), said the ruling from 29 October to uphold section 377A of the Penal Code violated “a host of human rights guaranteed by international law,” including the right to privacy, the right to freedom from discrimination, and the right to freedom from arbitrary arrest and detention, including protection for sexual orientation and gender equality.While the law is “rarely” invoked in Singapore, “it nonetheless codifies discrimination and contributes to societal stigma against individuals who are gay,” he said.In its examination of the constitutionality of section 377A, the Supreme Court decided the section did not violate articles 9 and 12 of the Singapore Constitution, which guarantees the right to life and liberty, and right to equality before the law and equal protection of law, respectively. While the Supreme Court expressed sympathy for the situation of the appellants, it stated it was up to the Singaporean Parliament to amend the law, Mr. Colville said. Some political leaders in Singapore had publicly advocated for tolerance and inclusion, the spokesperson said, noting that OHCHR was thus hopeful that Singapore’s legislature would respond to the Court’s decision by repealing the section and enacting anti-discrimination legislation that includes discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity. read more

TriRail train derails in Deerfield Beach no injuries

first_imgDEERFIELD BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) – A Tri-Rail train came off the CSX railroad tracks in Deerfield Beach at the start of rush hour.7Skyforce HD hovered above the scene in the area of Southwest 10th Street and 12th Avenue, about a quarter mile west of Interstate 95, Tuesday afternoon.According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, they received a call about the derailment at around 3:15 p.m.Officials said the southbound train was heading to the Miami International Airport when its leading locomotive derailed from the tracks.One of the train’s wheels apparently came off at a switching area underneath an overpass. Officials said the train was moving very slowly at the time it derailed.There were about 200 passengers on board the three-car train. No one was hurt.The most pressing issue for crews was making a makeshift staircase to allow passengers to de-board. The train came to rest at an angle that creates a steep incline for passengers. At around 4:30 p.m., Tri-Rail officials began bringing shuttle buses to take passengers to their destination.Officials said all passengers were removed from the train by 5 p.m. They were taken to the nearest Tri-Rail station in Pompano Beach.Another track was being used to move other trains past the disabled Tri-Rail train, but officials cautioned customers to expect some delays in this area.It remains unknown what caused the train to come off the track.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

Astronomers discover nine new variable stars

first_img Dozens of new variable stars found in a dense globular cluster This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Explore further A team of astronomers from Chile has detected nine new variable stars in the globular cluster NGC 6652 and its background stream. Six of the newly found stars were classified as eclipsing binaries, one as an SX Phoenicis star, and two remain unclassified. The finding is detailed in a paper published December 10 on Variable stars could offer important hints into aspects of stellar structure and evolution. They could be also helpful for better understanding of the distance scale of the universe.In particular, studies of variable stars in star clusters are of special interest for astronomers as they have the potential to help identify systematic errors that affect stellar distance indicators. However, although stellar variability in globular clusters (GCs) of the Milky Way galaxy is one of the oldest branches of astronomy, there are still many galactic GCs in which the census of their variable star content is far from complete.One such understudied cluster is NGC 6652, residing some 32,600 light-years away from the Earth and about 8,800 light-years from the center of the Milky Way, in front of the Sagittarius dwarf spheroidal galaxy. It is an old (about 11.7 billion years), fairly metal-rich galactic globular cluster associated either with the Milky Way’s inner halo or the outer parts of the bulge.A group of researchers led by Ricardo Salinas of Gemini Observatory in Chile, has conducted a search for variable stars in NGC 6652 and the background Sagittarius stream. They have analyzed archival data from the Gemini Multiobject Spectrograph (GMOS) at the Gemini South telescope, which resulted in finding nine new variable stars.”We conducted a variable star search on the metal-rich galactic globular cluster NGC 6652 using archival Gemini-S/GMOS data. We report the discovery of nine new variable stars in the NGC 6652 field, of which we classify six as eclipsing binaries and one as an SX Phoenicis star, leaving two variables without classification,” the astronomers wrote in the paper. The newly detected variable stars received provisional designation from V15 to V23. V17 is an SX Phoenicis star, while the classification of V15 and V21 is currently unknown. The most interesting find presented in the paper is V17 – a pulsating blue straggler. It is a member of the Sagittarius stream and has a well-defined period of 0.039 days.In general, SX Phoenicis stars like V17 have spectral types between A2 and F5, vary in magnitude by up to 0.7, and short period pulsation behavior varying on timescales from 0.03 to 0.08 days. All known SX Phoenicis variables in GCs are blue straggler stars as they are more luminous and bluer than stars at the main sequence turnoff point for the cluster.When it comes to the six binaries, V16 was found to be a long-period eclipsing binary, V18 a Beta Lyra-type eclipsing binary, and V19 most likely a W Uma type, although a Beta Lyra membership cannot be excluded. According to the researchers, V20 is also most likely of W Uma type, V22 could be a RGB star in an eclipsing system, while V23 is an eclipsing variable of the Algol type. © 2018 Science X Network Citation: Astronomers discover nine new variable stars (2018, December 19) retrieved 18 August 2019 from A finding chart for the discovered variables in the NGC 6652 field, based on a GMOS r image.

Akinci disapproves of Easter service restriction in north

first_imgThrough his spokesman, Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci said on Thursday that he disapproves of moves restricting Greek Cypriots’ right to worship in the north.Akinci’s spokesman Baris Burcu said in a written statement the Turkish Cypriot leader disagreed with the decision by the ‘government’ in the north to deny a request for Greek Cypriots to hold the Good Friday service at Ayios Georgios Exorinos in Famagusta.As a result, the matter has become politicised, allowing “certain quarters on the Greek Cypriot side to take advantage of it,” Burcu added.On a practical level, the denial was also bad for business, as a number of Turkish Cypriot merchants were counting on the church service to cater to visiting Greek Cypriot worshippers.According to Burcu, Akinci told the ‘governing parties’ in the Turkish Cypriot ‘parliament’ that he thought the decision was wrong.Holding a service at the Ayios Georgios Exorinos church, which was reinstated only in 2015 after 58 years, was recently denied by authorities in the north.It appears the move is a casualty of a new policy in the north last year limiting Orthodox services and introducing permits for such events. The reasoning was that there were too many services taking place and they could not all be adequately policed.Commenting on this earlier in the week, President Nicos Anastasiades said he raised the matter with Akinci during their latest meeting.Akinci replied that it was a “government” decision, not his.A number of Turkish Cypriot civil society organisations have condemned the move, saying it harmed rapprochement between the two communities.You May LikeTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionOne Thing All Liars Have in Common, Brace YourselfTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionUndoFigLeaf Beta AppGet Maximum Privacy with Minimum EffortFigLeaf Beta AppUndoTotal Battle – Online Strategy GameIf You’re PC User This Strategy Game Is A Must-Have!Total Battle – Online Strategy GameUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoTwo arrested in connection with attempted murderUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
