Premier Encourages Nova Scotians to Attend Remembrance Day Events

first_imgOn Remembrance Day, Nov. 11, the men and women who have served their country will be honoured across the province, and Premier Stephen McNeil is encouraging Nova Scotians to participate in events. “We live in a province with a strong and profound attachment to the military,” said Premier McNeil, also the minister responsible for military relations. “Nova Scotians deeply respect the contributions military members, both past and present, have made in serving our country.” Each year at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, Nova Scotians gather in community halls, memorial parks and at cenotaphs to observe a moment of silence and mark the sacrifice of so many. “Appreciating and remembering the brave men and women who have served this country brings families and communities together, helps foster a stronger nation and a greater appreciation of the sacrifices made for us all,” said Premier McNeil. For information on Remembrance Day events, Nova Scotians can check with their local branch of the Royal Canadian Legion or their local municipality. -30-last_img read more

Ramadan An American Perspective

By Lameese MadiRabat- An American Student Highlights His Experience Fasting During the Holy Month of Ramadan. Ramadan is a special time for many Muslims around the world. It is not only a time for fasting, but a time for families to get together and experience the struggles and joys of the holy month. For many non-Muslims, the practice seems strange and difficult, but for some, the challenge is enticing.   Lennon Jones, 24, studies Arabic in Rabat, Morocco. After graduating from Vassar College in New York, he decided to move to Morocco and continue his education in Arabic.  Although Ramadan is a traditionally religious Islamic duty to fast, many non-Muslims try to fast to obtain a better understanding of Islamic customs. When he decided to fast, Jones had already experienced Ramadan in Jordan, but he wanted to try his hand at fasting for the first time this Ramadan in Morocco.“I always thought about it in the back of my mind, oh maybe I’ll fast and maybe a couple days before Ramadan I decided, okay I’m going to fast.”  For most Muslims, the first couple of days in Ramadan are the hardest.  Getting into the routine of fasting, working, and finding time for religious devotion has its trials. Ramadan can be a time to learn useful skills, such as patience and time management. Jones experienced similar difficulties.  “The first day was easy and I was like, wow I can do this. But then these last two days have been a little bit tricky. The first time I’ve fasted, and I think I’m going to fast if not the whole month of Ramadan but at least a couple days. It’s been a rewarding experience.”  To keep the hunger at bay during Ramadan, Jones drinks plenty of water and eat wells. “Food in a western culture is not so much to sustain yourself but it’s like an experiment. We go to these fun restaurants and find trends in foods, but it made me realize how we are separated with the substance part of [food] which is kind of the point of Ramadan…” Unexpectedly, the first problem that he faced was actually boredom. The issues he faced were trying to find things to kill the time. As the days went on, he found that there was a lot of time for self-reflection and it was becoming a calming experience. “The fasting was not really difficult, like the eating and the non-eating was not so difficult. The difficult part was changing my life and changing my schedule to not think about not eating and not preparing food and not buying a lot of food,” said Jones. Jones does plan to continue to fast the rest of Ramadan after finding it challenging and rewarding. “I don’t like to quit,” said Jones.

Uber acquires Mideast competitor Careem for 31B

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Ride-hailing service Uber says it has acquired its Mideast competitor Careem for $3.1 billion, making it the largest-ever technology purchase in the region.Uber said in a prepared statement on Tuesday that the $3.1 billion consists of $1.7 billion in convertible notes and $1.4 billion in cash. The deal will make Careem a wholly-owned subsidiary of Uber, operating as an independent company under the Careem brand and led by its original founders.Dubai-based Careem is among the Middle East’s most successful startups. Careem is popular across the Middle East in part because it introduced the option for riders to pay by cash rather than just credit card.Uber’s CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said in a statement the purchase expands the U.S.-based company’s strength around the world.The Associated Press read more

Quartet urges Israel Palestinians to seize the moment for peace

The diplomatic Quartet seeking peace in the Middle East today called on Israel to take immediate steps to relieve economic hardships facing the Palestinians and on the Palestinians to fight violence and terrorism ahead of Israel’s planned withdrawal from the occupied Gaza Strip.“The Quartet reiterates its belief that this is a moment of optimism in the search for peace in the Middle East, and is an opportunity that should not be missed to revitalize the Road Map,” the four partners – the United Nations, European Union (EU), Russia and the United States – said in a statement after a meeting in London attended by Secretary-General Kofi Annan. The Road Map, the Quartet’s plan for a Middle East settlement, calls for parallel and reciprocal steps by Israel and the Palestinians leading to two States living in peace and security, originally targeted for the end of this year.Also attending today’s meeting were US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, Luxembourg’s Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn representing the EU Presidency, EU High Representative for a Common Foreign and Security Policy Javier Solana and European Commissioner for External Relations Benita Ferrero-Waldner.With less than two months remaining the planned withdrawal from Gaza, the partners stressed the urgent need for Israel and the Palestinians to work directly and cooperatively with each other.They urged Israel “to take immediate steps, without endangering Israeli security, to relieve the economic hardships faced by the Palestinian people and to facilitate rehabilitation and reconstruction by easing the flow of goods and people in and out of Gaza and the West Bank and between them.” Noting that that peace and security are essential components for political and economic revival, they stressed that “the Palestinians must confront violence and terror in order for political and economic life to flourish” and urged both parties to avoid and prevent any escalation in violence so that the withdrawal can proceed peacefully.Condemning the recent upsurge in violence in Gaza, including the firing of mortars and Qassam rockets into Israeli towns and homes, which has claimed innocent lives on both sides, they noted that rapid reform of Palestinian security services and strengthening of the rule of law are essential elements that can improve security for both parties. They also voiced concern over Israeli settlement activity. “The Quartet encourages Israelis and Palestinians to take full advantage of this opportunity in order to move closer to the goal of two democratic states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace and security,” they declared. “The Quartet reaffirms that the two-state vision and the Roadmap are the best way to achieve a permanent peace and an end to the occupation that began in 1967.” read more

After WildCard Weekend There Is No Super Bowl Favorite

DenverAFC—0-2-114 Winners and losers of the wild-card round Last year, we went into the playoffs with a pretty good idea of the Super Bowl favorites. This year, not so much. According to our Elo ratings, no team entered the 2015-16 postseason with better than a 20 percent shot at the Lombardi Trophy. (As a point of historical comparison, Elo’s No. 1 regular-season team wins the Super Bowl at a 34 percent clip.) And none of last weekend’s games changed that — if anything, the Super Bowl picture is even more chaotic now.Why is all this happening? In part, blame a weird disagreement between seeding and team strength. Basically, each conference’s lowest-seeded teams — i.e., the road teams in wild-card weekend — are among its most powerful, which left weaker teams with home games and even, in a few cases, bye weeks. That’s a recipe for more parity across the playoff landscape.The trend toward parity was borne out in last weekend’s results and will continue into this weekend. All four road teams won for the first time in modern wild-card history, and in each case the winner was the stronger team according to Elo. Consequently, all of Elo’s current top eight are still alive, but upside-down seeding continues to keep the playoffs wide open, as the higher-rated team will be at home in only a quarter of this weekend’s games. MinnesotaNFC-6-15-6-3— Kansas CityAFC262013614 SeattleNFC6188413 WashingtonNFC-27-11-3-1— PittsburghAFC1324848 New EnglandAFC—-8-3-211 ArizonaNFC—-3-2-116 HoustonAFC-26-12-4-1— CincinnatiAFC-13-24-11-5— CHANGE IN PROBABILITY OF WINNING … CarolinaNFC—-6%-4%-2%18% TEAMCONFΔ ELODIVISIONAL ROUNDCONF CHAMPSUPER BOWLSB ODDS Green BayNFC2716747 Bold indicates that a team is still active in the playoffsSource: ESPN The weekend’s two biggest gainers in Super Bowl win probability, for instance, were the Kansas City Chiefs and the Seattle Seahawks, who also happen to be the top two teams in football according to Elo. But both will be underdogs in the divisional round because they’ll be on the road. Conversely, the Super Bowl odds for the top two seeds in each conference went down, because the possibility that they’d have to face one of the scary lower seeds turned into a certainty.As a result, all of the remaining teams in the championship hunt saw their Super Bowl chances become more compressed over wild-card weekend. That’s bad news for the bye teams but good for us as football fans, because this is one of the most evenly matched sets of divisional-round games ever.Read more: The Biggest Surprises Of Wild-Card Weekend read more

Integrity Commission issues expenditure report on PNP PDM PPP

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppThe Integrity Commission has issued a report on the expenditure of the three local political parties’ during the 2012 election campaign and from the numbers the Progressive National Party had spent a sizeable figure, but only when compared to the other two parties. According to the report, the PNP’s overall expenditure for the 2012 election campaign stood at more than $332,000, while the People’s Democratic Movement Party’s spending ran to an approximate 139,000 and the People Progressive Party’s spending stood at a little over $110,000. With these figures the PNP’s expenditure has tripled that of the PPP’s and doubled that of the PDM’s. On the flip side the PNP’s expenditure would seem quite reasonable considering the $600,000 limit that each party could have spent on their 2012 election campaigns. The report coming from the commission also revealed that the PNP outspent the other two parties in all areas with the bulk of their funds spent on Advertising and Publicity and likewise the PPP pumped most of their funds in the same. However, the PDM’s biggest expenditure was on rallies. Approximately $38,000 in total was incurred by both the PDM and the PNP in the March 2013 bi-election where the official opposition PDM spent around $14,000 and the PNP an approximate $24,000 to go on and win the government.last_img read more

Do Your Part Keep Treated Seed out of Commodity Shipments

first_imgIt’s planting season and the American Soybean Association (ASA) is reminding growers to take special care to prevent treated seeds from entering the supply of U.S. grains and oilseeds.Treated seeds in commodity shipments are a multi-commodity problem that warrants the attention of the entire supply chain. Maintaining the stellar U.S. reputation for appropriately managing all pesticides is one key element of providing for customer satisfaction and official acceptance of exports. Few concerns can be as damaging to supplier reputation for quality and safety of agricultural products as one over the presence of seed treatment compounds in commodities intended for use in food and feed.Because U.S. farmer compliance is critical to avoid disruption of U.S. soybean exports to overseas markets, disposal recommendations were included in the ‘Treated Seed Disposal’ section of the Pesticide Environmental Stewardship website of the Center for Integrated Pest Management,” which can be viewed here.Earlier this year, the American Seed Trade Association (ASTA) and CropLife America released The Guide to Seed Treatment Stewardship, an industry-wide initiative to promote the safe handling and management of treated seed. The guide is divided into seven sections including information on storing, labeling, planting and more.Endorsed by ASA and other ag groups, the guide provides farmers and seed companies with critical information and up-to-date guidelines for managing treated seed effectively to further minimize the risk of exposure to non-target organisms.last_img read more

Ridgefield soccer reaches 1A semifinals

first_imgGAME RECAPRidgefield 3, Seattle Academy 0In control: Ridgefield dominated possession for long stretches and improved to 17-0 on the season.Semifinal bound: The Spudders will play at 2 p.m. on May 25 in Sumner against Overlake or Vashon Island.CAMAS — That the Ridgefield boys soccer team breezed through the Trico League was no surprise.But the ease with which the Spudders have dispatched their first two state tournament opponents is another matter.“We’re playing all right,” junior midfielder Tanner Konkright said. “We could do things better. We could possess the ball better. But I think our defense is pretty good.”On Friday, Ridgefield locked up a spot in the Class 1A semifinals by shutting down the Seattle Academy Cardinals for a 3-1 victory at Doc Harris Stadium. It was the second time in three days that the Spudders used their assertiveness to win possession battles, allowing them to control a state-tournament contest.Sophomore Dalton Ries had a goal and two assists for Ridgefield (17-0). His goal 13 minutes after halftime was the blow that sapped the visiting Cardinals of any real hope for a comeback.The Class 1A semifinals and finals are next Friday and Saturday at Sunset Chevrolet Stadium in Sumner. Ridgefield will play its semifinal at 2 p.m. on May 25 against the winner of Saturday’s quarterfinal match between Vashon Island and Overlake. On May 26, Ridgefield will either play for a state title or for third place.The quarterfinal win on Friday was another step forward for a Spudders’ program that lost in the first round of the state tournament in 2010 and in this round last season.last_img read more

Gronk’s light suspension is the latest example NFL discipline incompetence The past NFL weekend was marked by several notable big hits that resulted in suspensions. Of all the hits, Rob Gronkowki’s late hit, forearm shiver to the back of Tre’Davious White was easily the most egregious, while Juju Smith-Schuster’s body bagging of Vontaze Burfict took place while engaging in a football play.Colin thinks the two hits are clearly distinguishable, in terms of severity, but the fact that the NFL suspended both players for one game is the latest example of the NFL being incompetent in determining suspensions.The NFL is great at many things, but discipline isn’t one of them. They need to figure out another solution because the current decision making process isn’t working. Stop comparing Baker Mayfield to Russell Wilson Baker Mayfield and Russell Wilson have certain traits in common. They’re both undersized, mobile quarterbacks who excel at improvisation, and when looking for an NFL quarterback to whom to compare Mayfield, Wilson is often the first choice for many. Colin disagrees.He sees general similarities between the two, but Wilson is working on a first ballot Hall of fame career, and even though the two have traits in common, Wilson is far better at all of them. Also, from an off-field and maturity standpoint, Mayfield is no Russell Wilson.The Mayfield/Wilson comparison is an easy one. It’s also lazy. Just stop.last_img read more
