first_imgTORONTO – The Toronto Islands, a popular summer destination for both city residents and tourists, are set to reopen to the public on Monday after a nearly three-month closure due to historic flooding.Heavy rains in the spring caused water levels in Lake Ontario to rise to record highs, closing the cluster of islands to visitors as trees fell over, roads were washed out and carp spawned in large, muddy puddles.Island businesses — which rely on the busy summer season for a large portion of their revenue — suffered losses as their flow of customers slowed to a trickle, residents who lived on the islands stacked sandbags in an effort to keep their homes dry and industrial pumps worked to remove water from waterlogged areas of the community.The islands were supposed to reopen on June 30 but persistent rain and high water levels kept them closed.With Monday’s opening date now in sight island residents and businesses said they were happy the community will be able to benefit from tourism again.But many residents say they’ll also miss having the island all to themselves.“It was, at points, surreal,” said Shane Kearney, an island resident, who said that an entire generation of islanders have never had the island to themselves like this.“It was beautiful. You could go for bike rides and not see one person in the middle of a sunny afternoon on a Saturday.”As of Thursday morning, the island already had more of a buzz in the air as crews started to prepare for next week’s visitors. Pumps were still flushing out water in some closed-off areas, but many of the spots that had been submerged only had small puddles.At the Island Cafe, a restaurant a short walk from the island’s eastern ferry terminal, co-owner Zorah Freeman-McIntyre said businesses on the island have been ready to receive guests for a while.“As soon as (word) gets out, I think the boats will be quite packed,” he said. “We’re excited for people to come and for our businesses to thrive again.”Freeman-McIntyre said all the businesses had been frustrated the islands couldn’t open earlier, but understood that the flooding posed some safety concerns for visitors.Toronto’s water taxi services have also been anticipating the opening date, as they lost out on large chunks of business when the islands were closed.Sean Stewart, CEO of Infinity Water Taxi, said he only started his business 10 weeks ago. To offset the lack of island visitors, Stewart said he had to approach hotels and businesses to offer more tours of the lake, rather than just taxiing visitors back and forth from the islands.He said it’s a relief to learn business will soon go back to normal.“It is fantastic news, it’s great to know that we can have a piece of our history back again,” said Stewart.Some parts of the Toronto Islands will still have to remain closed, the city said.All beaches will be open with lifeguards on duty, but portions of some beaches will remain off-limits due to erosion and Olympic Island will remain closed to the public due to high water levels.Mayor John Tory has said the cost of fixing the damage done to the city’s shorelines and the Toronto Islands will run to many millions of dollars. The city said Thursday that preliminary numbers suggest the flooding and closure of the island had a financial impact of $4.9 million on its operating budget.“I know that for many Torontonians summer isn’t complete without a visit to the Toronto Islands, which is why I’m so pleased that the park is being reopened for residents and visitors to enjoy,” Tory said Thursday.“I want to thank city staff for their tireless and ongoing commitment to preserving and restoring the island park and to residents for their patience throughout this unprecedented event.”Island resident Jennifer Scott-Wood said she’s happy the islands are opening, but she’s going to tell her relatives to skip the visit this year.The ground is mushy and it’s not a great play spot,” she said, adding that a lot of areas were mosquito-laden throughout the day and that the island had tested positive for West Nile virus.“If you go on the grass it’s very … gross,” she said. “I hope we don’t have this again for another 30 or 40 years.”last_img read more


The study, produced by the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Innocenti Research Centre in Florence, Italy, is based on six dimensions to measure the well-being of children – material well-being, health and safety, education, peer and family relationships, behaviours and risks, and young people’s own subjective sense of well-being. “All countries have weaknesses to be addressed,” Innocenti Director Marta Santos Pais said of the Report Card 7: Child Poverty in Perspective. “No single dimension of well-being stands as a reliable proxy for child well-being as a whole and several OECD countries find themselves with widely differing rankings for different dimensions of children’s lives,” she added, referring to the Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development that groups 30 industrialized nations. The report shows that among all of the 21 OECD countries surveyed in the study there is room for improvement and that no single state leads in all six of the areas. Based on an average ranking position for all six dimensions the Netherlands topped the chart with 4.2, followed by Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Spain, Switzerland, Norway, Italy, Ireland, Belgium, Germany, Canada, Greece, Poland, Czech Republic, France, Portugal, Austria, Hungary, United States and the United Kingdom, the last two with an average rank of 18 and 18.2 respectively. The report finds no strong or consistent relationship between per capita gross domestic product (GDP) and child well-being. The Czech Republic, for example, achieves a higher overall rank for child well-being (12.5) than several much wealthier European countries. Also no country features in the top third of the rankings for all six dimensions. Pointing out that the Convention on the Rights of the Child calls on all countries to invest in its children “to the maximum extent of available resources,” Ms. Santos Pais said international comparison was a way of testing this commitment. “A country cannot be said to be doing the best it can for its children if other countries at a similar stage of economic development are doing much better – and that’s what the league tables are designed to show,” she added. The report is intended as a first step towards regular and comprehensive monitoring of child well-being across the OECD. Its scope is limited by the availability of comparable data, which means that key areas such as mental and emotional health and child neglect and abuse are omitted. But UNICEF hopes it will help to stimulate the collection of more comprehensive and more timely data. “All families in OECD countries today are aware that childhood is being re-shaped by forces whose mainspring is not necessarily the best interests of the child,” the report states. “At the same time, a wide public in the OECD countries is becoming ever more aware that many of the corrosive social problems affecting the quality of life have their genesis in the changing ecology of childhood.” Given these conditions, the report points to an overall view that the time has come to attempt to re-gain a degree of understanding, control and direction over what is happening to children. “That process begins with measurement and monitoring. And it is as a contribution to that process that the Innocenti Research Centre has published this initial attempt at a multi-dimensional overview of child well-being in the countries of the OECD.” 14 February 2007The Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark and Finland are at the top and the United States and the United Kingdom at the bottom of a United Nations score card launched today that provides the first comprehensive assessment of the well-being of children and young people in the world’s advanced economies. read more

In a joint statement, the UN Humanitarian Coordinator in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT), Jamie McGoldrick; the Head of the UN Human Rights office (OHCHR) in the OPT, James Heenan; and the Special Representative for the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in the State of Palestine, Genevieve Boutin, said they were “deeply concerned” by continued reports of “children killed or seriously injured, some as young as 11” in Palestinian-administered areas.They also denounced the fact that “children in Israel are exposed to fear, trauma, and grave injuries”.“This month alone, seven Palestinian children were killed by live ammunition and shelling from Israel”, they said, adding that “two Israeli girls aged 14 and 15 also reportedly sustained injuries from rockets and mortar shells indiscriminately launched by Palestinian armed groups towards Israel”.According to figures provided by UN agencies in the region, since the start of demonstrations at the border fence against Israel’s longstanding blockade and deteriorating living conditions in Gaza on 30 March, 26 Palestinian children have been killed.21 were shot during the demonstrations, and five others were killed by Israeli shelling, or outside the context of demonstrations. In the same period, hundreds more children have been injured by live ammunition.“A number of these children will suffer lifelong disabilities, including as a result of the amputation of limbs,” the UN officials said. “Thousands are in need of urgent psycho-social assistance, specialised medical care, and support for their rehabilitation.”The statement stressed that “all over the Occupied Palestinian Territory, but particularly in the Gaza Strip”, children are “robbed of every right.”“Families cope with four hours of electricity per day in the sweltering heat, clean drinking water is expensive and hard to find. The start of the school year in one month will be very difficult for tens of thousands of families who cannot afford basic school supplies,” said the three UN officials.In addition, they deplored the “too often cynical use of children in political rhetoric and propaganda on all sides,” citing last week’s call by the organisers of the ‘Great March of Return’ for Palestinians to demonstrate under the banner of “the Friday of our Child Martyrs” and the reported exposure of children to violence. “Children should never be the target of violence and must not be put at risk of violence, nor encouraged to participate in violence,” the joint statement read.“We call on Israel, as well as the Palestinian Authority and the Hamas authorities in Gaza to put children’s rights ahead of any other considerations and to take immediate steps to alleviate their suffering,” said Mr. McGoldrick, Mr. Heenan and Ms. Boutin. “Respecting the rights of children and refraining from instrumentalising their plight should be a priority for all”, they insisted, stressing that the Israeli-Palestinian context is “not an exception”.On 23 July, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, briefed the UN’s Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People, on the many human rights violations facing women, children and men living in the OPT. read more


first_imgMauritanie : la pêche interdite pour offrir aux richesses aquatiques un repos biologiqueMauritanie – Pendant deux mois, la pêche industrielle sera interdite en Mauritanie. Unrepos biologique censé permettre aux richesses halieutiques de se régénérer dans un contexte de surexploitation. Ce premier repos de deux mois a débuté samedi dernier et durera jusqu’au début du mois de juillet. Il sera suivi d’une seconde interdiction de la pêche industrielle en septembre et octobre prochains.À lire aussiPourquoi l’eau des océans est-elle salée ?Un tel repos biologique doit “permettre la création d’un milieu propice à la régénération des ressources halieutiques, leur gestion durable et la préservation du milieu naturel” a expliqué le ministère de la Pêche. L’interdiction concerne quelque 300 navires opérant dans les eaux mauritaniennes et parmi eux, plus de 150 bateaux européens qui s’adonnent à la pêche de fond.D’une durée de deux mois pour la pêche industrielle, le repos biologique concernera également la pêche artisanale. Toutefois, pour cette dernière, l’interdiction ne durera qu’un mois et débutera le 15 mai prochain. “L’option du repos biologique est nécessaire au moment où nos eaux sont surexploitées et fortement pillées par les pirates contre lesquels la marine mauritanienne fait pourtant de gros efforts” souligne auprès de l’AFP un expert mauritanien de la pêche, Brahim Ould Boucheiba. Et d’ajouter que le potentiel exploitable est aujourd’hui très largement dépassé, l’effort de pêche touchant les animaux juvéniles, qui devraient pourtant être épargnés.Le 9 mai 2010 à 16:25 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more


first_imgFoxconn Technology, the world’s largest contract manufacturer of electronic items, will reportedly start making 4G smartphones for the impending launch of Reliance Jio at its facility in Navi Mumbai from March.The Taiwanese tech giant has acquired 200,000 sq ft on a sub-lease in Navi Mumbai’s information technology & IT-enabled services zone for the facility, which will also be used to manufacture handsets for its existing client Chinese Xiaomi, an official of the state government’s industries department told Business Standard.Recently, Reliance Jio launched its 4G services, initially, for the employees of Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Industries. The commercial launch of its services is expected in the next fiscal year.The facility will mark Foxconn’s first investment in Maharashtra after it had announced in August that it would invest $5 billion (roughly Rs 32,000 crore) in the state in the next five years. The state government had also agreed to allot 1,500 acre land for Foxconn.However, Foxconn is yet to send a formal application for the allotment of 1,500 acres to set up research and development (R&D) and manufacturing facilities, the official said. The company was looking to have plants at Khopoli in Raigad district and Chakan-Talegaon in Pune district.”Senior executives are expected to soon meet with officials of Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation. MIDC will notify the necessary land after it receives Foxconn’s proposal,” the official added.In October last year, the Maharashtra government led by chief minister Devendra Fadnavis had rolled out a range of incentives for Foxconn to set up manufacturing units in the state.The state government had said that it would assist Foxconn in getting loans at preferred rates of interest, including a payment moratorium period of 10 years. Besides, the government will offer a subsidy on its total fixed capital investment, without a bar on the amount. Foxconn will also be eligible for 20% subsidy from the state government in addition to central government subsidies.Foxconn, which is already making smartphones for Xiaomi at a leased facility in Sri City, Andhra Pradesh, was reported to be in advanced talks with the Gujarat state government last month to set up a manufacturing plant near Sanand, in which it is likely to invest $4 billion (around Rs 25,000 crore).last_img read more

Collection of candid portraits by Raghu Rai

first_imgFilmmaker Satyajit Ray captured on camera on the sets of Bengali film Ghare Baire is among a slew of portraits assembled by ace photographer Raghu Rai in his new book aptly titled ‘People’.Ray’s photograph in black and white considered to be a masterpiece has a story behind it, reveals Rai. “He lay down on the same bed, smoking his pipe, on which his heroine was sitting and I took some pictures from the front. Then I moved towards the other side from where you could only see his back and I realized that the lighting was very dramatic. You could see the adjoining room through the door and there were spectacular shadows falling on the wall,” says the photographer.  Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe images in the book, published by Aleph, reveals moments and people in both candid and staged and describe Rai’s inexplicable sense to capture the truth of the person through his lens.Apart from portraits of film personalities and celebrities captured in shining black and white in their most candid expressions, the book also contains a compilation of Rai’s best photographs of people. The pictures, he says, were taken for specific magazines or newspaper assignments and as Rai says have happened as “a result of spontaneous magic.” “When I take a person’s portrait, I am trying to capture the aura of that person. I am trying to get the truth of that person to emerge in the photographs,” he says. “My portraits of musicians in the book looked strong because they all were a candid study of them. MS Subbulakshmi’s portrait was taken when she was performing. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveBismillah Khan’s portrait was taken when he was in jugalbandi with Vilayat Khan,” Rai writes. The photographer who has won many international as well as national accolades including the Padma Shri, describes images of people in black and white vividly and refers to shoot pictures in the same shades.“I prefer to take portraits in black and white. Colour makes for very average portraits. In black and white, the grey tones, highlights and contrasts that you are able to create enable you to bring out the strength of the expression in a person’s eyes or face,” he writes. Rai describes his interest to click ordinary people and mentions some of the public figures which he enjoyed photographing. “I liked taking pictures of Indira Gandhi early on in her career, later as a result of growing security concerns; she became a bit distant and photographing her wasn’t as much fun,” he says.“I suppose my all time favorite among people I have shot is Dalai Lama. I have never met God but I have no hesitation in saying that Christ/Buddha/Nanak must have been like Dalai Lama,” Rai writes while describing his passion to shoot the Dalai Lama. Rai does not detest the new “selfie” phenomenon, but describes it as only mere “fun”. “Today, unfortunately, the age of the selfie has destroyed the art of portrait photography,” he writes.“These cell phones have wide angle lens which distort perspective. In order to take a good portrait you have to use a lens that does not distort perspective. Selfies are fun, but as portraits they are just silly.” The images in the book stamp themselves immediately on the viewer’s gaze. Rai wraps up his compilation of portraits asking the viewer to look for the essence of whichever person has been photographed, rich or poor, famous or anonymous.last_img read more

The Packers Should Deal for Antonio Brown

first_imgAntonio Brown and the Steelers went public with their intention to part ways yesterday after Brown met with Steelers’ President Art Rooney. Brown has probably turned some teams off with his erratic social media behavior and bridge burning approach to get his way, but Colin thinks the Packers should roll the dice and get Aaron Rodgers the best weapon of his career.The Packers need more firepower, especially with the Bears now the team to beat in the NFC North, and it would be stupid for Green Bay to waste the final good years of a generational quarterback talent like Rodgers by penny pinching and surrounding him with sub par offensive talent. The fit for Brown also works because he gets another elite QB talent to get him the ball. As the Amari Cooper trade to Dallas already showed, a shotgun receiver/QB marriage can work and produce big-time results in today’s NFL.With two first round picks, Green Bay has the assets to unload one and get it done. They should.last_img read more

New startup aiming to improve services in Cyprus set to launch soon

first_imgThe new website will help locals make better decisions by learning from others’ experiences and by sharing their own through online reviews.There is a new local services review platform in town. opiokalos.com which is set to launch next month is the first website in Cyprus that connects locals with the best businesses, and business owners with their communities through reviews.‘Our main advantage is fourfold: we publish reviews as written by consumers with no possibility for businesses to change, remove or re-order them, we build businesses reputation based on service quality, we offer free access to everyone and we have zero tolerance for fraud’ said Opiokalos founder Anca Rachita.While the first advantage is quite self-explanatory, Rachita further explained that even though people in Cyprus can find recommendations on social media or from relatives, most of these turn out to be biased or not based on a larger unrelated community.How does it work?As for how it will work, Opiokalos.com is creating a technology that is focused on improving user experience, thus making it easy for people searching for specific services to find them by either browsing categories or by searching for specific business names and keywords related to the needed service. Their technology will also allow users to customise and personalise their search to help them find exactly what they are looking for. In case the searched business is not yet available, Opiokalos.com will also allow users to create a listing for it and then review it.This is a win-win situationThe platform is aiming to help businesses build their online reputation and improve their services.“We want Opiokalos to be a win-win for both communities and business owners. Clients want convenience, if they can’t find a business they can’t choose it and if they find it they need to trust it first before engaging in a purchase,” said Rachita.Opiokalos already has many enquiries from Cyprus businesses that want to take part in this brand-new way of working with their customers, but at first, they will feature only the best businesses in terms of service while it will allow its database to expand slowly.The platform offers a free plan for business owners but also paid plans for more serious collaborations.Early-bird service providers know that thousands of residents and millions of yearly visitors to the island will value Opiokalos’ way of doing business.Care to join us?

News Bangladesh have been warned to expect a fresh barrage of short-pitched deliveries when the second Test against New Zealand starts in Christchurch on Friday While there were regrets Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur was struck on the head and rushed to hospital during the first Test New Zealand pace spearhead Trent Boult described the intimidating bouncer as a valuable part of their armoury “I’m sure there’ll still be some short-pitched bowling” Boult said on the eve of the second Test as New Zealand look to wrap up a sweep in all formats against Bangladesh on the tour “People have to realise why people are bowling short in the first place and that’s to upset the batsmen and get them stuck on the crease to make the fuller ball more effective “You’re not going in there with the intention of trying to hurt anyone — it’s to make your other skills more effective and have a bit more purpose” There were anxious moments when Mushfiqur lay prone on the pitch after he was hit in the first Test in Wellington with memories still fresh of how Australian opener Phil Hughes suffered a fatal blow from a similar delivery in November 2014 Former New Zealand medium pacer Ewen Chatfield’s heart stopped and he required mouth-to-mouth resuscitation after being hit on the forehead in a Test against England in 1975 Mushfiqur suffered concussion and has been advised not to play for up to three weeks but Boult said that was not a reason to stop using legitimate short deliveries and most of the Bangladesh batsmen proved they could handle it “It’s a valuable skill as a fast bowler” Boult said “It’s always intimidating coming out and facing a barrage of short-pitched bowling but I think they played it nicely (in Wellington) “They looked to be aggressive to it picked their times down wind and into the wind when to play the short ball” Bangladesh also made liberal use of the tactic themselves in the first Test targeting New Zealand’s short-ball bowling specialist Neil Wagner who was struck on the helmet three times and suffered a cut chin when the protective grille was slammed into his face New Zealand coach Mike Hesson said he believed there were sufficient rules in place to aid the batsmen which included a requirement to wear a safety compliant helmet “You’re trying to create wicket-taking opportunities you’re certainly not trying to hurt anybody” he said “You play within

Moonee Valley in the Mid Year Cricket Association match was given out despite the bails remaining unmoved Even though the middle stump fell the bails remained intact leading to a debate whether dismissing him was the right decision or not Jatinder’s captain Michael Ozbun said that nobody had ever seen something like that before and even the umpire was confused “There was a little bit of debate and the umpire was a bit confused as well” the Australian media reported Ozbun as saying “Nobody had seen anything like that before” Ozbun narrated the confusing incident He said “I was on the boundary I saw the stumps fly and thought ‘all right he got bowled it was a silly shot’ Then everybody was standing around the wickets and I didn’t know why I went out there saw what was going on and it was very confusing” Despite the confusion the teams decided that Jatinder should be out “We had no idea what the actual ruling on it was but we all admired it for a few minutes” Ozbun said “You probably couldn’t do that again if you tried We weren’t sure if maybe (the stumps) were put it at a slight angle so there was just a little bit of pressure “When they were sitting on the stumps they were in the grooves It wasn’t like the middle of the bails were above the stumps or anything MYCA president Neil Daly said that the umpire made the right call “The ball had to have hit at the exact right point that the stump didn’t fly up it went down” he said “The only similar incident I had was a bail slipped down between the stumps and wedged between the stumps” Daly said “It was given not

IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsReal estate sector is susceptible to black money because of its own flaws.For commoners the demonetisation shaker has been enough to make them want to blend their black into whites and no more accepting in black’s attitude In real estate while demonetisation has handcuffed a lot many illegal deals because of the absence of lubricating cash demonetisation by itself is powerless to arrest the corruption that grips the sector and keeping it flowing with black money As per syndicated reports black money constitutes 25-30 percent of India’s GDP indicating that the size of the parallel economy could be about Rs 28 lakh crore Reuters Now the demonetisation shake has made the black visible as the corrupting layer making the going forward task somewhat easy in real estate Some noteworthy observations from across the society on tackling black money in real estate “Demonetisation will not stop the corruption that creates black money For this you have to attack its underlying sources” Prominent commentator Gurcharan Das said so in an article “Ten ways to save demonetisation and stop the economy from choking” published in Times of India suggesting to PM Narendra Modi that one way is to focus on real estate Das said “In real estate every step is mired in corruption – from buying land to getting approvals” Black money in real estate is also the result of excessive stamp duty NITI Aayog Vice-Chairman Arvind Panagariya has spoken about the possibility of easing off the stamp duty rates "Stamp duties vary widely across the states and there is need to look at that If you keep the stamp duties too high that encourages under the table real estate transactions Tax reforms like reduction in stamp duty are necessary to stop generation of black money in the system and that this should be done at the earliest following the demonetisation of high value banknotes The government is beefing up enforcement against tax cheats in the real estate sector” “Property can be sorted out easily and cleaning up property transactions is not tough” sociologist and public intellectual Dipankar Gupta pointed out in his article “Making a Quick Black Buck” in TOI “Just equalise the circle rate with the market rate and watch how it impacts real estate like an instant whitener Bleaches will be bleaches and will cause some corrosion but the net result is worth it Add a twist to it by merging GST with stamp duty and you can dry your clean linen in public” he says The global real estate services and investment management firm Jones Lang LaSalle’s (JLL) Chairman & Country Head Anuj Puri too feels the same: “Circle rates – the minimum value at which the sale or transfer of a plot built-up house apartment or a commercial property can occur – usually set by the state government’s revenue department or the local development authorities – need to be made dynamic so that they are marked to the market price This will reduce the difference between reported rates and transacted rates The Benami Act will make it difficult to park unaccounted wealth into real estate” “The way to tackle real estate corruption and black money is to make all processes — building and environmental permissions floor-space index (FSI) rules — transparent and time-bound If you attack benami real estate aggressively property prices will crash and banks will have to force home buyers to either pay more EMIs or shorten their tenures or bring in more margin money Moreover their bad loan problem will get worse And let’s not forget the entire core sector — from cement to steel and power — is linked to real estate and construction So real estate black money will have to be defanged in stages When these decisions are made rule-based and non-discretionary netas and babus will lose their ability to demand bribes most of which comes in the form of benami property ownership Unfortunately as these reforms depend on states they have to move faster on this front” explained R Jagannathan an economic commentator and editorial director Swarajya in an article in HT “There are several ways to minimise if not eliminate the possibility of future generation of unaccounted money in the sector” says Sachin Sandhir Global Managing Director – Emerging Business RICS – “notably by instituting regulatory controls that can change the dynamics of demand in favour of real users as opposed to investors looking for capital gains and taking steps to rationalise supply and make real estate a generally accessible market And by replacing a regressive tax regime with something that is more equitable and is not as such hurting in terms of its overall impact on pricing or money flows” Sandhir says that the game plan should be to remove the conditions that foster the need for black money in real estate Real estate development is linked very closely to local economic development – a mandate that local governments are empowered (and supposed) to foster but do not address in the first place So – the only place where monies are meant to be made is within the production of real estate itself In a way this is also ‘rent seeking
