RIP DENNIS MCGRATH

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment From WGCWe mourn the passing of longstanding WGC councillor, screenwriter, and friend, Denis McGrathToday the WGC joins the screenwriting community in mourning Denis McGrath, a longstanding WGC councillor. Denis passed away yesterday at St. Joseph’s hospital in Toronto.Denis worked tirelessly for the betterment of Canadian screenwriters, as a councillor since 2008, and as a fierce negotiator through the last two rounds of IPA bargaining. He was a sharp, outspoken advocate for screenwriters through social media, and his blog, Dead Things ON Sticks. Denis took on the powers-that-be in the industry, questioning assumptions and challenging ill-informed rhetoric. Denis never gave up a fight.His professional accomplishments include winning the WGC Writers Block Award for service to Canadian screenwriters (2015), and he was nominated for a Gemini and won a WGC Screenwriting Award for his miniseries, Across the River to Motor City. He was a valued screenwriter on shows including X Company, Continuum, Bitten, The Border, and many others.Denis was also a teacher and a mentor. He served as the Executive Producer in Residence and Showrunner Mentor for the Prime Time program at the Canadian Film Centre; taught students at Ryerson University, and gave generously of his time to both his peers and screenwriting newcomers.Denis famously loved baseball, and knew a hell of a lot about it. He also was passionate about politics, science-fiction, and many kinds of music. But today what we remember most about Denis is his quick wit, his irreverence, and his wonderful deep laugh, a laugh that made us want to laugh along with him. We did, and we thank him for that. His loss is immeasurable.SOURCE:  WGC – WRITERS GUILD OF CANADA Advertisement Login/Register With: Advertisement Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Gaza and Middle East peace among issues discussed by Ban and Israeli

7 July 2010Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met today at United Nations Headquarters in New York, where they discussed a number of issues including the Middle East peace process and the situation in Gaza. The UN chief has welcomed the additional measures announced this week by Israel in increasing the scope and quantity of materials allowed into Gaza, and said he hoped they will lead to an improvement in the situation of the 1.5 million Palestinians living in the territory. He and other UN officials have repeatedly called for ending the blockade against Gaza, which Israel imposed on the territory for what it called security reasons after Hamas, which does not recognize Israel’s right to exist, ousted the Fatah movement in the Strip in 2007.Mr. Ban and Mr. Netanyahu also covered, among other topics, Lebanon and Security Council resolution 1701, which ended the 2006 conflict between Israel and Hizbollah. Their meeting also included a one-on-one discussion, according to the Secretary-General’s spokesperson. read more

27M water main repair approved

Major repair work in Port Rowan this summer could be highly disruptive to the town’s annual influx of cottagers and tourists.Jason Godby, Norfolk’s manager of public works administration, is aware of that and told Norfolk council he will work with area residents to ensure big events such as Bayfest are affected as little as possible.It’s a delicate balancing act because public works has determined that long sections of iron water main installed 30 years ago has deteriorated unexpectedly. Tests have concluded that it must be replaced as soon as possible to avoid a catastrophic failure.“This is something we can look at and co-ordinate with them (Bayfest organizers),” Godby said. “It’s not unusual for us to lay water pipe in September. It’s definitely something we will keep in mind.”Godby wouldn’t commit to postponing the work till after the Labour Day weekend. It’s entirely possible, Godby said, that the county can get this work done by the end of August — before the big Bayfest celebration.“We could be in and out of there prior to that,” Godby said.At issue is seven kilometres of iron water main installed by the former Haldimand-Norfolk Region in 1991.The region overlooked that the soil in the construction zone is acidic. As a result, sections of pipe that were expected to last 75 years are in danger of failing. Were that to happen, Port Rowan and St. Williams could be left without tap water or hydrant fire protection.The county realized how serious the problem is in 2017 when a main failure came within half an hour of emptying the Port Rowan water tower. Had that happened, Port Rowan and St. Williams would’ve lost pressure and run dry.Water main tests have determined that 12 segments of pipe have lost more than 30 per cent of their original thickness. The loss for another 30 segments ranges from 10 per cent to 30 per cent. Eleven segments have less than 10 per cent deterioration.Godby recently said the mains should have been backfilled with benign soil trucked in for that purpose. Instead, the county is looking at an unexpected repair that will cost an estimated $2.7 million.“We understand the difficult position Jason is in,” said Port Rowan Coun. Tom Masschaele. “We need to get this project done as soon as possible.”Norfolk council Tuesday approved the expenditure. The money will come from the county’s water replacement reserve fund.“You can have the best laid plans, but problems do come up,” said Delhi Coun. Mike ColumbusThe repair will involve the following sections in the following neighbourhoods:Front Road from College Avenue in Port Rowan to Ellis Street ($270,000) Bay Street from Ellis Street to Church Street in Port Rowan ($345,000) Wolven Street from Erie Avenue to East Quarter Line Road ($935,000) Front Road from East Quarter Line Road to a point 1.2 kilometres east ($720,000).

Gildan entering Mexico with US110 million purchase of Alstyle Apparel

MONTREAL – Gildan Activewear is expanding its low-cost manufacturing presence by entering Mexico with the acquisition of the apparel division of Ennis Inc. for US$110 million.The Montreal-based company said Wednesday it has signed a deal to buy the equity interest of Alstyle Apparel, which makes T-shirts and fleece products largely sold under the Alstyle brand to screenprinters and mass marketers in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.Alstyle operates a large textile facility along with cutting and sewing operations in Mexico, as well as distribution centres across North America.Gildan (TSX:GIL) says the acquisition, which is slated to close the end of June, broadens its position in the Western United States where Alstyle has a strong presence.It also enhances the company’s competitive retail position in Mexico and allows Gildan to take advantage of trade agreements that provide duty-free access to market in South America.Gildan says Alstyle will be integrated into its printwear business and realize cost savings after being aligned with its own operations.Alstyle generated about US$19 million in pre-tax profits on US$183 million of revenues in the last fiscal year.Meanwhile, Gildan says its net profit increased 12.9 per cent to US$63.2 million in the first quarter despite lower sales.Adjusted income for the three months ended April 3 was US$69 million or 28 cents per share, up from US$57.5 million a year ago.Revenues fell 6.7 per cent to US$593.3 million.Gildan says it continues to expect to post US$1.50 to US$1.60 per share in adjusted earnings on more than US$2.6 billion of sales with branded apparel piercing US$1 billion.Gildan makes T-shirts, fleece, underwear, socks and other apparel products at large manufacturing facilities in Central Ameria, the Caribbean Basin, Bangladesh and the United States that employ more than 42,000 employees. by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted May 4, 2016 3:26 pm MDT Last Updated May 4, 2016 at 4:33 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Gildan entering Mexico with US$110 million purchase of Alstyle Apparel read more

Guterres expresses support for UN agencys work assisting Palestine refugees in Middle

According to a statement issued by his spokesperson, the UN chief also expressed his support and admiration for UNRWA’s role in delivering essential services and protecting the rights of millions of Palestine refugees across the Middle East. “UNRWA operates in the front lines of difficult conflict situations and provides education for half a million refugee girls and boys, teaching them human rights and tolerance. Its education and relief activities contribute critically to stability in the region,” read the statement. It added: “The Secretary-General calls on all [UN] Member States to continue their support to the Agency in order for UNRWA to be in a position to fulfil impartially and efficiently its essential role and to implement its humanitarian mandate to serve Palestinian refugees until a just and durable solution to their situation is found.” The statement also noted that UNRWA is mandated by the UN General Assembly whose Members have repeatedly acknowledged its unique contribution to peace and security in that region.Meanwhile, the UN agency reported last Friday that it discovered part of a tunnel which passed under two adjacent UNRWA schools located in the same premises in the Maghazi camp in Gaza Strip. The discovery was made during the summer vacations when the schools were closed and in the course of construction work in one of the school buildings. “Following a thorough inspection of the site, [we] can confirm that the tunnel has no entry or exit points on the premises nor is it connected to the schools or other buildings in any way,” read a statement issued by UNRWA, in which it condemned such tunnels in the strongest possible terms. “It is unacceptable that students and staff are placed at risk in such a way,” UNRWA added, noting that it has robustly intervened and protested to Hamas in Gaza and informed them that it intends to seal the tunnel under its premises, as an immediate priority.It also noted that the presence of tunnels also violated international law, which provides that UN premises shall be inviolable and underscored that the sanctity and neutrality of UN premises must be preserved at all times. read more

Success at the new Eurotire training centre for surface mining personnel

first_imgThe Eurotire Training Center has officially opened its door in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine. This facility will act as an educational facility for Eurotire employees and customers alike. Training will include technical, safety, commercial, and industry instruction. The aim of Eurotire’s training center is to further education in the mining industry regarding all OTR related matters. Jack James, a long-time OTR veteran and experienced OTR instructor, has been named Director of the center.In March 2011, the Eurotire Training Center successfully graduated the first official Eurotire Certified personnel. The training included technical, commercial, and safety instruction, a visit to the Eurotire Ukrainian Factory, and a two-day mine site visit. Eleven Eurotire sales representatives from Ghana, Brazil, Russia, Kazakhstan and Ukraine attended training. As part of the practical training program, mine site visits were undertaken to large scale mining operations located in the region. During the site visit the trainees were given the chance to apply classroom instruction on safety and technical matters to the real world of mining. Additionally, attendees were given an extensive factory tour of Eurotire’s Ukrainian manufacturing facility.“Everyone left the course with a better understanding of the OTR Industry and Eurotire’s method of selling” stated James.last_img read more

Google avoids major fine by striking deal with EU regulators

first_imgIf the terms are accepted, local and search results will display competitors alongside traditional advertisements on both desktop and mobile devices.(Images: europa.eu)The European Commission will discuss the changes with Google’s competitors first before it decides whether the agreement should be made legally binding.Read: EU report fails to find conclusive evidence linking pylons with health risks >Read: If you’re for voting rights for Irish abroad, the EU is on your side > My mission is to protect competition to the benefit of consumers, not competitors. I believe that the new proposal obtained from Google after long and difficult talks can now address the Commission’s concerns.Without preventing Google from improving its own services, it provides users with real choice between competing services presented in a comparable way; it is then up to them to choose the best alternative.This way, both Google and its rivals will be able and encouraged to innovate and improve their offerings. Turning this proposal into a legally binding obligation for Google would ensure that competitive conditions are both restored quickly and maintained over the next years. THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION announced that it has reached a provisional agreement with Google that could end an antitrust investigation which lasted three years.The company, which was accused of squeezing out competitors from its search results, will now display search results from three of its competitors alongside its own results and mark them in a way that is clear for users to see.If the deal isn’t confirmed, Google risks being fined more than $5 billion, or ten per cent of its annual worldwide turnover..The proposal would not only apply to existing services but also to design changes of those services and any new services Google introduces in the future.Other concessions that Google will make include giving content providers an extensive opt-out from the use of their content in its specialised search services if they wish, without being penalised, removing exclusivity requirements in its agreements with publishers for the provision of search advertisements and removing restrictions on the ability for search advertising campaigns to be run on competing platforms.Speaking about the proposal, the Commission Vice President in charge of competition policy, Joaquín Almunia, said:last_img read more

Guardiola makes World Cup pledge to Man City stars

first_imgSixteen members of the Premier League-winning squad are heading off to Russia this month, more than any other club in world football as Pep Guardiola says he will be available for talks about anything Manchester City players wish to talk during the World Cup, according to Manchester Evening News.England defender John Stones thanked Guardiola for improving his game and plans to take up the manager’s offer this summer.“I think the thing for me is how he has made everything so simple. He has taken my footballing brain to another level,” he said.“Everyone thinks they know football and different systems but when I turned up at City and trained with him it was like a new door opening that I never thought would be there.”norwich city, manchester city, premier leagueReport: City are stunned by Norwich George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Manchester City was stunned by Norwich City in todays Premier League clash.Much has been made in recent days of the potential impact of Aymeric…“I will definitely speak to him in the tournament.

Texas Homeless Youth Slip Through Cracks Of Disjointed Support System New Report

first_img Share But homeless youth are also more vulnerable to becoming victims and experience higher rates of sexual and physical assault. According to the report, 34 percent of youth surveyed experienced child abuse or neglect, 23 percent experienced sexual assault and almost 17 percent had been physically or sexually assaulted on the streets.Kemp said he feels lucky to have avoided jail during his years of homelessness and doing “shady stuff” — he has seen his peers fall into that system.“I’ve known a couple people to become homeless or stay homeless because they went to jail,” Kemp said. “The juvenile justice system, foster care system and education system have a ways to go in terms of restorative treatment and prevention.”When Kemp’s family became homeless, he dropped out of school and worked to help support them while they lived in a hotel. Since then, he’s obtained his GED and hopes to apply to a global studies program at the University of Texas.“I feel like a phoenix. I was like a gutter punk kid,” Kemp said. “Now I have my stuff together.”Disclosure: Texas Appleseed has been a financial supporter of The Texas Tribune. A complete list of Tribune donors and sponsors is available here. The report concluded that while a network of advocacy organizations serves many homeless youth across different parts of Texas, a lack of central authority or a single definition of homelessness means youth can cycle through the child welfare system, education system and juvenile justice system — jumping between being labeled a victim or an offender, eligible for resources in one system but not in another.“The big picture here is that we’ve got all these state systems that intersect with this issue and they’re all experiencing challenges because of this issue, because Texas hasn’t really brought resources to serve this population to the table,” said Texas Network of Youth Services Executive Director Christine Gendron. Policy recommendations in the report include initiating a statewide task force, led by the Department of Family and Protective Services and the Department of Housing and Human Affairs, to identify funding strategies and increase resources for transition centers, guaranteeing that homeless youth have assistance when they are victims of crime and increasing intervention for runaways.Homelessness and educationGendron pointed to the public education system as a bright spot in easing access to resources for homeless youth.“Schools are on the front lines when it comes to the opportunities to identify young people who are homeless,” she said.Administrators from schools in areas affected by Hurricane Harvey say their resources are being especially stretched after a sharp increase in homeless students because of the storm.Wanda Bamberg is superintendent of Aldine ISD, located in Harris County north of Houston. She said the number of homeless students in her district grew from 478 last year to 1,146 this year — but that school resources and staff are based on 2016’s numbers.“You’ve got these kids living in substandard conditions and their parents are out of a job, things are topsy-turvy at home. If they had a library, it’s gone,” Bamberg said. “Our kids have been traumatized, and so have our staff members.”A statewide count of homeless students following Harvey is not yet available, but in the 2014-2015 school year, 113,000 students were identified as homeless according to the Texas Homeless Education Office, an organization funded by the U.S. Department of Education and the Texas Education Agency to ensure educational opportunities for homeless youth.Schools may be best equipped to be a point of contact for homeless youth, the report said, but that doesn’t mean those students won’t still struggle. According to the report, 1,000 homeless students repeat a grade and 1,400 drop out each year, and homeless students are 10 times more likely to drop out of school. They’re twice as likely to be referred to in-school suspension and five times more likely to be referred to alternative education.Homelessness and crimePart of the reason homeless youth are more likely to end up in the criminal justice system is that they have nowhere to go, the report said. Breaking curfews and running away can often result in detention for “delinquent conduct.” Each year in Texas, around 2,000 youth are referred to the juvenile probation system for running away, according to data from the Texas Juvenile Justice Department listed in the report.center_img Alexandra Arriaga/The Texas TribuneGage Kemp spent four years homeless when he was a teen. He now is an advocate for other homeless youth.Gage Kemp was 17 when he first became homeless.“The home I grew up in, there was a lot of drug abuse and violence, and I got bullied a lot,” Kemp said. “My parents were on hard drugs, and my dad told me to get out. It was in that moment I realized I was free, in a sense.”Over the next several years, Kemp spent his days in Dallas hitchhiking and finding work while spending nights on streets or under bridges — relying on the charity of others for food and supplies.Now 23, Kemp lives in affordable housing adjacent to LifeWorks in East Austin, a shelter and support organization. He spends his time now as an advocate for others going through what he went through.“It’s ridiculous that it took me four years to find out that I could get transitional living, counseling, housing,” Kemp said.Homeless youth in Texas like Kemp are inadequately supported due to a spotty system of programs and resources, according to a new report released Wednesday by Texas Appleseed and Texas Network of Youth Services.last_img read more

Derrick Hall satisfied with Dbacks buying and se

first_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Then Brandt answers the question that’s probably lingering as you read this.What’s currently separating the Cardinals from the top three? Thus far, they — like the Falcons — have relied more on non-offensive touchdowns (three defensive, one return) than the three teams above, who have no return touchdowns and just one defensive touchdown (by the Packers) between them.Fair enough. It’s true that Arizona has gone 4-1 with a balance of offense and defense.However they’re getting the points, the Cardinals have thus far put together a historic season in that regard.When considering the offense only, Brandt ranks the Cincinnati Bengals, Green Bay Packers and New England Patriots — all perfect on the season — ahead of Arizona. – / 14 Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo The Arizona Cardinals score 38 points per game, good for first in the NFL.

first_imgIn a bid to highlight the practice of bird trapping in Cyprus, well-known British naturalist and anti-wildlife-crime campaigner Chris Packham has produced a documentary, which was released this week.‘Cyprus: Massacre on migration’ is another reminder that the slaughter is rampant on the island.An estimated 2.5m birds die every year in Cyprus as the result of being caught in nets or on lime sticks, far more than in all other European countries.The short documentary is a touching account of Packham’s visit to Cyprus in autumn 2016 when he was involved in freeing birds from traps – an activity not without dangers.The naturalist and a small group of activists from the Committee Against Bird Slaughter (Cabs) moved at night because they didn’t want to meet any trappers.“These guys are a bit more hardcore than the people we mixed with in Malta,” Packham explained. “Andrea and other members of Cabs have had their tires slashed, were shot at and even beaten with poles by the trappers.”The reasons for this are explained in the documentary. For one, blackcaps are a delicacy in Cypriot restaurants which means there is a yearly profit of €15m.“When there is money involved, there is organised crime,” the campaigner said. “That is why it is so dangerous – these people are proper criminals.”He goes on to explain that there is also no political will to tackle the problem as a lot of votes are at stake while many politicians openly support the crime.The best argument of the documentary is probably the filming of how the activists remove the little delicate birds from the nets, a painstaking task which takes several minutes for each bird.  You May LikeCity BeautyDo This To Fix Sagging Jowls Without SurgeryCity BeautyUndoSolar SolutionsCalifornia Will Pay Homeowners to Install SolarSolar SolutionsUndoFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?FigLeaf Beta AppUndo 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
