These initiatives are in addition to the projects already announced.Applications for the next First Nations Clean Energy Business Fund intake will be accepted until the end of May 2019.“Since having our Aboriginal title recognized, we have been looking for diverse opportunities within our territory. The development and operation of this solar farm is not only useful for the area, but also brings employment and training to our Nation. As a Nation, we have always said that to do business with us, you need to come through our doors and sit at the table in a meaningful way. The solar farm is a great example of that.” Chief Joe Alphonse, Tsilhqot’in Tribal Chairman“First Nations are moving forward with greener alternatives, such as solar, in meeting their energy needs. This work is an important part of our CleanBC strategy and supports self-determination. All of us in every area of the province have an important part to play in putting B.C. on a path that powers our future with clean, renewable energy and reduces air pollution.” Scott Fraser, Minister of Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation VICTORIA, B.C. – Fourteen First Nations pursued cleaner energy in 2018 with support from the provincial government.West Moberly First Nations received $150,000 for the construction of a biomass conversion project to make the Twin Sister Native Plant Nursery more energy efficient.The 14 Indigenous-driven projects were supported by the First Nations Clean Energy Business Fund (FNCEBF), with $2.49 million invested in run-of-river hydropower, solar farms, energy-efficiency plans and numerous feasibility studies.last_img read more

US releases list reflecting tougher NAFTA negotiating positions

MEXICO CITY — The United States has published an updated list of NAFTA negotiating objectives to reflect some of its tougher-than-anticipated demands in a reminder of the difficult hoeing ahead as parties seek fertile ground for a deal.The U.S. trade czar’s office released the new list on Friday just as the three chief negotiators began meeting in Mexico City for their first encounter after an acrimonious round revealed huge differences.Sources say Canada and Mexico will start the months-long task of probing the U.S. for signs of willingness to compromise, though they expect little progress on the toughest sticking points for another few rounds.A new document from the American side illustrated those big gaps.The U.S. released an updated version of a July document published before negotiations started, in keeping with transparency requirements under American trade law. The new list includes tougher language on Canadian dairy, auto parts and Buy American rules, reflecting negotiating demands adopted in recent weeks.“(Our) objectives represent a serious effort to renegotiate the agreement to update its provisions to the best 21st century standards and rebalance the benefits of the deal so that each country succeeds. … If these objectives are achieved, the United States will obtain more open, equitable, secure and reciprocal market access and the entire NAFTA region will benefit,” says the document.Major changes from the previous version of the document released four months ago include:–On auto parts, ensuring that rules of origin promote production in North America as well as “specifically in the United States.” That reflects a U.S. demand at the last round that cars must include 50 per cent U.S. content and 85 per cent content from North America overall, to avoid a tariff.–Ensuring reciprocity in market access for public-works contracts. This reflects an American demand that would limit access to Canadian and Mexican companies to one dollar in public contracts for every dollar American companies receive in those countries.–Eliminating Canadian tariffs on imports of dairy, poultry, and egg products. The July document did not specifically mention eliminating Canada’s supply management system. But at the previous negotiating round in October, the U.S. requested supply management’s elimination within 10 years.All these demands, and some others, have been deemed non-starters by Canada and Mexico.But those two are starting to demonstrate a willingness to seek compromises on some areas. For instance, both Canada and Mexico say they could envision some form of review mechanism every few years to provide status reports on the agreement.That proposal falls short of the U.S. demand for a so-called five-year sunset clause. In the U.S. position, NAFTA should come with a proviso that the deal gets cancelled unless all parties endorse it after five years.A rare hint of potential compromise from the U.S. came in the portion of Friday’s document referring to that sunset clause. The new U.S. position paper avoids mentioning a five-year cancellation threat, and actually contains language much more palatable to Canada and Mexico.The new document describes the U.S. position on the so-called sunset clause the following way: “Provide a mechanism for ensuring that the parties assess the benefits of the agreement on a periodic basis,” which sounds closer to the types of periodic reviews Canada and Mexico might be willing to live with.Canada also intends to signal its willingness to review auto-parts rules. But again, it views the U.S. starting numbers to be well outside the bounds of an acceptable final compromise.“We’re willing to talk about rules of origin,” said one Canadian official. “But certain figures, or certain proposals, are just not-starters … There are certain starting points that are just unworkable.”It’s considered doubtful too much progress on the thorny issues will happen at the current round, which ends next week. Canadian officials say they anticipate progress on less-controversial issues like digital commerce, regulatory co-operation and labour and the environment.But they expect the more intense decision-making to ramp up in the first quarter of next year, as the talks get closer to the hoped-for deadline of March. In the meantime, they will be looking for signs of potential common ground with American negotiators and watching whether the U.S. president escalates his threats to cancel NAFTA.Canadian union leader Jerry Dias said the sides are frozen far apart. The Unifor boss met with Canada’s chief negotiator at the talks, and suggested Steve Verheul and his American counterparts weren’t doing much budging on the big issues.“He’s showing as much flexibility as the United States is,” Dias said, when asked about the chat with Verheul. Dias also said there’s little room for Canada to cede much ground: “Nobody’s going to capitulate to Trump. Trump is wholly unpopular in Canada and Mexico. So nobody really wants to make it look like a Donald Trump victory party.” read more

Mens Hockey Ohio State extends win streak to 6 with wins against

Ohio State junior forward Dakota Joshua and Penn State sophomore forward Nikita Pavlychev face off during their game on Dec. 1. The teams tied at five, but the Nittany Lions won the shootout 1-0. Credit: Nick Hudak | For the LanternAfter losing a pair of games to then-unranked Penn State in early December, Ohio State sat in the bottom half of the Big Ten, far from the NCAA tournament.However, Ohio State responded to the defeats with red-hot play and now sits second in the conference as a rematch against the Nittany Lions looms in the horizon.The No. 8 Buckeyes (14-4-4, 7-4-1-0 Big Ten) continued their stretch of dominant play by winning their fifth and sixth straight games with ease against Michigan State (8-13-1, 2-9-1-1 Big Ten). They defeated the Spartans 4-1 in the first game, then finished the sweep with a 5-3 victory in the second.Special teams remained a strength for the Buckeyes the entire series. They allowed just one goal while on the penalty kill and scored three during power plays in both games combined. Ohio State has now scored a power-play goal in three straight games and remains the best team in the country while a man down.Game OneThe Buckeyes started Friday’s game fast and used the hot start to secure a 4-1 victory in the first game of the two-game series.Junior defenseman Sasha Larocque took just 30 seconds in the first period to find the back of the net for the first time this season. The puck found its way to Larocque at the point, and the wrist shot beat sophomore goalie John Lethemon to put Ohio State up 1-0.The second period felt like deja vu, with Ohio State scoring two goals in the first 32 seconds to take a 4-0 lead, a lead they never gave up. Sophomore forward Ronnie Hein scored his first goal of the season off a rebound from a shot by sophomore forward Tanner Laczynski, then Laczynski scored a goal of his own 17 seconds later after a Spartan turnover.Junior forward Brennan Sanford scored the lone goal for Michigan State in the third period.Redshirt junior goalie Sean Romeo made 21 saves. Michigan State pulled Lethemon after allowing four goals on 16 shots, and senior goalie Ed Minney made 12 saves after being put in the game.Game TwoWhile the second game of the series featured more back-and-forth action than the previous matchup, Ohio State was able to score in bunches to earn a 5-3 victory and extend its winning streak to six games.The Buckeyes scored two goals in 17 seconds in the first period to take a 2-1 lead with goals by senior forward Matthew Weis and junior forward Dakota Joshua.Midway through the third period, when Ohio State led 3-2, the Buckeyes put two past Minney in less than two minutes to secure a three-goal lead and the victory. Joshua scored for the second time in the game off a faceoff win, then junior forward Freddy Gerard scored the fifth goal of the night for Ohio State on assists by Laczynski and Weis.Laczynski leads Ohio State with 29 points on the season, which is tied for third in the nation. The assist in the second game gave Laczynski a point in five straight games and 11 of the last 12.Michigan State opened the scoring in the first period on a goal by freshman forward Mitchell Lewandowski, and the 1-0 lead held until Weis and Joshua scored with six minutes remaining in the period.The Spartans tied the game at 2-2 with the lone goal of the second period on a power play goal by sophomore forward Sam Saliba.Romeo made 20 saves in the victory. Minney made 26 saves in the losing effort for Michigan State. read more

As my former colleague Reuben Fischer-Baum wrote on a couple of occasions, it’s when all four major U.S. sports leagues — the NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB — play at least one game on the same day. Historically speaking, it doesn’t happen often. There have only been 17 sports equinoxes in history, including Thursday: Oct. 15, 1972Sun1 (WS Game 2)1236 Oct. 27, 1985Sun1 (WS Game 7)1315 Oct. 22, 1972Sun1 (WS Game 7)1235 Oct. 14, 1979Sun1 (WS Game 5)1337 Nov. 1, 2010Mon1 (WS Game 5)133 NUMBER OF GAMES Nov. 1, 2009Sun1 (WS Game 4)1274 Oct. 19, 1980Sun1 (WS Game 5)1336 Nov. 1, 2015Sun1 (WS Game 5)1275 Oct. 30, 2016Sun1 (WS Game 5)1178 Oct. 19, 2017Thu1 (NLCS Game 5)139 Amazingly, there was a 15-year period without a single sports equinox, between 1985 and 2001. And after 2001, seven more years passed without it happening. But sports equinoxes have occurred much more frequently in recent years — six have happened in the nine years since 2008. They might become even more common in the future, thanks to Thursday-night NFL becoming a fixture, the World Series often running later than usual, and a new NBA scheduling policy this season that moved the season’s opening night up by a week and a half.If the Cubs can force Game 7 in the NLCS, Sunday will be another sports equinox. As will Oct. 29, if Game 5 of the World Series takes place. But even if those do happen, Thursday’s equinox will be the only one this season with the added bonus of college football — there are two FBS games tonight, including No. 25-ranked Memphis at Houston (A “Super Equinox”?).

Pascal Gross defends Mesut Ozil Nobodys perfect

first_imgBrighton & Hove Albion midfielder Pascal Gross believes Mesut Ozil’s achievements in his career speak and his talent for themselvesThe German playmaker’s future at Arsenal has been under some rather intense speculation ahead of the January transfer market.Ozil has struggled to earn a regular place under new manager Unai Emery with former Arsenal Perry Groves claiming last week that his time is up.This comes in light of ex-Real Madrid star’s inconsistent performances at the Emirates Stadium since his arrival in 2013.But Gross, who clashed with Ozil in a Boxing Day game last year, believes his fellow German is simply misunderstood.“He is a fantastic player, a fantastic technician,” Gross told The Argus.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“People talk about his body language. It’s not like me. If you are not having the best day or my team, you try everything until the end. That’s my character.“I think he also does that but the body language sometimes – you don’t have the feeling that he is.“That has always been the thinking in his life people moan about. But the football, the technical stuff, you don’t have to say anything, it’s brilliant.“Every human is different. He’s had a great career with his clubs and the national team. He has done everything right for himself and his career. Nobody’s perfect.”Brighton and Arsenal will face other again in a Boxing Day clash today with kick-off set for 18:15 (CET).last_img read more

Animal rights activists protest outside South Beach hotel hosting pig roast

first_imgMIAMI BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) – Animal rights activists gathered in front of a South Beach hotel that hosted a culinary event centered around roasting pigs.Cameras showed demonstrators in front of 1 Hotel along Collins Avenue and 23rd Street, Sunday afternoon.Participants held signs that read “Animals Murdered Here” and “Meat Is Murder.”“Animals do not want to die,” protesters chanted over and over.Activist Elizabeth Jones said an independent group of local grassroots activists and concerned citizens are protesting the Cochon555 event taking place at the hotel on Sunday.“Cochon555 is an event where five pigs are killed to become somebody’s dinner,” said Jones, “and we’re here to show that you do not need to eat animal products to live healthy, full lives.”The Cochon555 website describes the event as “a nose-to-tail culinary event dedicated to supporting family farmers and educating buyers about the agricultural importance of eating heritage breed pigs, some of which are on critical watch lists.” Jones said she is surprised 1 Hotel agreed to host the event.“The 1 Hotel, they promote a sustainable environment, a forward thinking environment, so we’re a little bit confused as to why they are hosting this event today, which promotes and perpetuates suffering and violence of innocent animals that didn’t want to die,” she said.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

Tesla wants Apples help in a lawsuit against an exemployee report says

first_imgEnlarge ImageA former Tesla employee is being sued for stealing the source code to Tesla’s Autopilot and uploading it to his iCloud account. Tesla It takes serious gumption to steal from a massive multinational corporation. But that’s exactly what a lawsuit being put forth by Tesla alleges that a former employee who’s now working for Chinese company Xpeng and its US-based subsidiary did, according to a report published Thursday by Bloomberg.The lawsuit filed by Tesla stems alleges that former employee Guangzhi Cao stole the source code for Tesla’s Autopilot software. Cao admitted to authorities that he did, in fact, download the source code, but his laywers maintain that he hasn’t done anything with it.The lawsuit is especially interesting because Tesla is seeking assistance from Apple — also a victim of IP theft from an Xpeng employee — in getting access to the thief’s data by way of a subpoena. According to Bloomberg’s report, it’s not totally clear what exactly Tesla is trying to get from Apple, but we suspect it involves access to documents from Guangzhi Cao’s iCloud account, where he admitted to storing Tesla’s IP.Now, it should be said that neither Tesla nor Apple has decided to go after Xpeng itself, instead focusing their efforts on the ex-employees that admitted to having made off with intellectual property. Further, Xpeng has maintained that when it found out that Apple was investigating IP theft, it immediately froze the employee out and eventually fired him.It’s not totally clear how cooperative Apple will be with Tesla’s requests, given that the two are now technically competitors in the race to bring real Level 4 and 5 self-driving car tech to market, but considering that Tesla is going after an employee rather than the company that hired him, we’re thinking it’s unlikely.Neither Tesla nor Apple immediately responded to Roadshow’s request for comment.

Qatar Airways restates desire to buy IndiGo stake alleges unfair treatment by

first_imgDoha-based Qatar Airways Wednesday has been interested in acquiring a stake in India’s most profitable carrier, IndiGo Airline, for a long time. Akbar Al Baker, CEO of Qatar Airways, said his airline could not invest in IndiGo’s IPO (Initial Public Offering) owing to the Indian government regulations.On the sidelines of the ongoing India Aviation 2016, an international exhibition and conference organised by the Ministry of Civil Aviation, Baker was quoted as saying by Mint his airline could not directly invest in IndiGo’s IPO due to time constraints.”We had to do it with our parent company, and our parent organisation, which is our sovereign fund, and to do that, we needed more time and the time was too short for us to move on this, [sic]” Baker was quoted as saying by the publication.Over the last few years, Qatar airways has reportedly been in talks with various Indian carriers such as Kingfisher Airlines, SpiceJet and GoAir. However Baker rebuffed the rumours Wednesday.Baker had said in May 2013 the gulf airliner was in talks with IndiGo, which is run by InterGlobe Aviation, for a code-sharing agreement. This would allow IndiGo and Qatar Airways to sell tickets on each other’s flights. IndiGo had denied holding any such talk, Mint reports.According to reports, Baker had said in January 2015 his airline was still intended in buying equity in IndiGo if the airline offered 49 percent.”If they are interested, Qatar Airways will be very interested,” he had added.On the other hand, Qatar Airways reportedly said it was treated “unfairly” by Indian authorities as opposed to other gulf airlines. He also criticised the government’s proposal to auction bilaterals and said the move was unrealistic, Moneycontrol reports.”Qatar is unfairly treated by Indian authorities. Qatar government raised unfair treatment issue with Indian government many times. There is never a balance in air traffic rights, [sic]” Baker told Moneycontrol.last_img read more

FBI translator marries ISIS operative

first_img.An FBI translator with a top-secret security clearance traveled to Syria in 2014 and married a key ISIS operative she had been assigned to investigate, CNN reports.Quoting federal court recordsm the CNN said the rogue employee, Daniela Greene, lied to the FBI about where she was going and warned her new husband he was under investigation.CNN’s portal published an investigation report titeld “The FBI translator who went rogue and married an ISIS terrorist”.It said Greene’s saga, which has never been publicised, exposes an embarrassing breach of national security at the FBI—an agency that has made its mission rooting out ISIS sympathisers across the country.It also raises questions about whether Greene received favourable treatment from justice department prosecutors who charged her with a relatively minor offense, then asked a judge to give her a reduced sentence in exchange for her cooperation, the details of which remain shrouded in court-ordered secrecy, according to CNN.It said the man Greene married was no ordinary terrorist.He was reportedly Denis Cuspert, a German rapper turned ISIS pitchman, whose growing influence as an online recruiter for violent jihadists had put him on the radar of counter-terrorism authorities on two continents.In Germany, Cuspert went by the rap name Deso Dogg. In Syria, he was known as Abu Talha al-Almani, according to the report. He reportedly praised Osama bin Laden in a song, threatened former president Barack Obama with a throat-cutting gesture and appeared in propaganda videos, including one in which he was holding a freshly severed human head, CNN said.Within weeks of marrying Cuspert, Greene, 38, seemed to realise she had made a terrible mistake, the report said. She reportedly fled back to the US, where she was immediately arrested and agreed to cooperate with authorities. She pleaded guilty to making false statements involving international terrorism and was sentenced to two years in federal prison. She was said to have been released last summer.last_img read more

New iPhones likely to hit Costa Rica stores by November

first_imgNo related posts. Apple on Tuesday officially unveiled two new iPhone models – the long-expectediPhone 5C, a lower-costing model, and the iPhone 5S.In Costa Rica, carriers Claro, Movistar and the state-owned Costa Rica Electricity Institute (ICE) announced that new models of the popular smartphone would take up to 60 days to be made available outside the United States, meaning the new iPhones likely would be available in Costa Rica by November.In the U.S. the iPhone 5C will go on sale on Sept. 20, with pre-orders starting on Sept. 13. It will cost $99 for a 16GB model or $199 for a 32 GB model, with contracts.As expected, the phone has a polycarbonate back and it comes in five colors: yellow, green, blue, red and white. Cases in the same colors will cost $29.Jonathan Ive, Apple’s senior vice president of design, described the iPhone 5C as “beautifully, unapologetically plastic.”It includes an A6 processor, an 8MP camera with a 3X video zoom camera app, an improved front-facing HD camera, dual-band WiFi, as well as “more LTE bands for world coverage,” Apple stated on its website.The high-end model iPhone 5S comes in silver, gold and slate gray.The 5S’ processor performs 40 times faster than the original iPhone thanks to a brand new chip called the M7, which is said to continuously measure motion data. This feature will allow the chip to support the accelerometer, gyroscope and compass.The iPhone’s battery life was improved on the 5S, and it will offer 10 hours of LTE and WiFi browsing, 40 hours of music and 250 hours of standby time.The iPhone’s camera also got a major upgrade as Apple increased the pixels to capture more light. Its camera can automatically detect white balance as soon as the app is launched, and it includes burst mode and true-tone flash.One of the most anticipated features also was confirmed Tuesday: the new iPhone will include Touch ID, a fingerprint sensor built into the home button. The sensor scans sub-epidermal skin layers and will have 360-degree readability. The fingerprint sensor can be used to unlock the iPhone or make purchases.“Your fingerprint is one of the best passes in the world. It’s always with you, and no two are exactly alike,” Ive said in a promotional video.Prices for the 5S in the U.S. (with a contract) are $199 for the 16 GB model, $299 for 32GB and $399 for the 64GB. The 5S also will go on sale in the U.S. on Sept. 20. Facebook Commentslast_img read more
