Ministers set to discuss timing of carbon tax legal challenges during meeting

first_imgOntario Attorney General Doug Downey says his government has until August to file a notice of appeal to the Supreme Court after that province’s appeal court upheld the federal carbon tax in a split decision.“It’s my understanding that (Saskatchewan) may be looking to have some of the cases consolidated so that … the Supreme Court’s hearing more than one at a time,” said Downey.He said there are pros and cons about presenting the cases together, but wouldn’t comment on his government’s preference or strategy.“From what I understand Saskatchewan is asking for an extension or for more time.” It argues a federally imposed carbon tax on consumers is unconstitutional but lost its case in a 3-2 split decision in its own appeal court.The provincial government appealed to the Supreme Court and says it has a tentative hearing date set for Dec. 5.Alberta Justice Minister Doug Schweitzer says his government is trying to play catch-up to Saskatchewan and Ontario when it comes to mounting its own legal challenge.He says it’s important for the ministers to compare notes about what they’re hearing from their legal teams and he wants the provinces to work together so that the matter is heard by the Supreme Court in a “co-ordinated and thoughtful way.”Schweitzer says he wants Alberta’s case heard by the Alberta Appeal Court before the country’s highest court rules on the issue, so the Supreme Court has the opportunity to consider the province’s evidence when it makes its decision.“We’re trying to work out (the) strategy to make sure each province can bring forward its strongest case to the Supreme Court,” he said. SASKATOON — Attorneys general from Alberta and Ontario say they will discuss the timeline of the different legal challenges launched against the federal carbon tax when they meet in Saskatoon today.The two justice ministers will be joined by their legal teams and their counterparts from New Brunswick and Saskatchewan.Saskatchewan is hosting the meeting to discuss the appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada.center_img — by Stephanie Taylor of The Canadian PressThe Canadian Presslast_img read more

Morocco’s Tourism Minister Qualifies Statement on Decriminalization of Homosexuality

Rabat – Lahcen Haddad, Morocco’s Minister of Tourism, issued an official statement on Thursday qualifying his earlier statements in an interview calling for the decriminalization of homosexuality in Morocco.After a video in which he expressed his opinion in favor of decriminalizing homosexuality in Morocco went viral on the internet, the minister released a statement clarifying his position and the stance of his party regarding the issue.“For more information and to inform the public opinion, I should say that the Popular Movement party of which I am a member, has not taken a position on this matter and that this issue was not on its agenda.One of the founding principles of the party is freedom with respect to the traditions and values of our society, and the debate around this question should respect values and be in conformity with the new Constitution,” the minister added. In an exclusive interview with CNN Arabic at the headquarters of his ministry in Morocco last October, the minister stated that “we should de-criminalize this [homosexuality and consensual sex out of wedlock] because it falls within the framework of protecting individual freedoms.”The minister added, however, that “if this phenomenon poses a threat to society or to the family, a consensual solution must be found.”The minister added that homosexuality and consensual sex out of wedlock falls within the framework of personal freedoms as long as homosexuals do not display their sexual orientation in public venues.Sexual relations out of wedlock are punishable by law in Morocco. Article 489 of the Moroccan Penal Code punishes sexual activities between people of the same sex by prison terms of six months to three years. read more

South Carolina Has A Shot At Beating UConn

South Carolina Has A Shot At Beating UConn

A’ja Wilson against ranked teams for the last 2 seasons PTS PER 40 MINS.FIELD GOAL PERCENTAGEDOUBLE-DOUBLES 2014-1523.147.42 Coates, the 2013-14 SEC Freshman of the Year, leads the nation in field goal percentage and has an SEC-best 12 double-doubles this season. Coates and Wilson are averaging a combined 29.6 points per game, the most by any frontcourt duo in the SEC. Overall, South Carolina is averaging 40.3 points per game in the paint and has outscored its opponents down low in every game this season.Based on their performance, the Wilson-Coates tandem could prove difficult for UConn to defend. Maryland’s Brionna Jones — one of the premier post players in the nation, with skills and stature similar to Wilson and Coates — put up 24 points against the Huskies earlier this season. UConn allowed a season-high 38 points in the paint to the Terrapins and trailed in the third quarter for the only time this season.South Carolina is also aggressive on the offensive glass, averaging 8.6 points per game on put-backs2All tracking data courtesy of Synergy Sports Technology. and grabbing 13.7 offensive rebounds per game. Connecticut is allowing 10.7 offensive rebounds per game but the Huskies’ opposition has failed to capitalize, managing just 3.5 points per game on put-backs.And don’t discount South Carolina’s home-court advantage. The Gamecocks have won 45 consecutive home games, the longest active streak in Division I, and are on track to lead the nation in attendance for the second consecutive season. Notably, South Carolina averages 80.2 points at home, compared to 68.4 points on the road.But will a strong post presence and a favorable crowd be enough to hand Connecticut its first loss in over a year? Probably not. UConn is on pace to lead the nation in both offensive and defensive efficiency for the fourth consecutive season; to have a chance against Connecticut you need to score at least 70 points. Over the last five seasons, UConn is 5-7 when opponents score 70 or more points, compared to 163-3 when holding its opponent to 69 points or fewer.And here’s the bad news for Gamecocks fans: South Carolina is tied for eighth in the nation in offensive efficiency but has been held below 70 points on seven occasions this season, four times against ranked teams.The Gamecocks also struggle on 3-pointers and free throws, which isn’t ideal when you’re trying to run up a big number on the Huskies. South Carolina is shooting 31.4 percent from deep this season, which ranks 150th in Division I. In one of Connecticut’s most tightly contested games this season, Notre Dame shot 65 percent from beyond the arc, making 13 3-pointers. DePaul and South Florida also had early success against Connecticut, making 12 or more 3-pointers and shooting 45 percent or better from beyond the arc.The view is even worse from the foul line, where South Carolina ranks 272nd in the nation with a 65.3 percent free throw percentage. Facing a Connecticut squad that holds opponents to a Division I-low 6.2 free throw attempts per game, the Gamecocks need to convert on any opportunity to put points on the board.Is South Carolina capable of upsetting Connecticut on Monday night? It’s possible, sure. But SC will need either something truly absurd out of Wilson and Coates or a momentary reprieve from its season-long trend of their range extending no farther than the length of their arms. 2015-1626.6 points53.1%7 While the rest of the country recovers from its post-Super Bowl hangover, the South Carolina women’s basketball team will attempt to do what only one team has accomplished in the last 35 months: beat Connecticut.The UConn Huskies are in one of the most dominant stretches in college basketball history, winners of 59 straight and 106 of their last 107 games. The South Carolina Gamecocks are having an impressive season of their own, off to a 22-0 start for the second consecutive season. And Monday night’s game between the only undefeated teams in Division I basketball will be the 56th meeting between the AP’s No. 1 and No. 2 women’s college basketball teams. The last such meeting did not turn out so well for the Gamecocks, with No. 2 UConn beating No. 1 South Carolina, 87-62 in Storrs, last season to snap a 22-game win streak.For any hope at a better result this season, the Gamecocks will need something special out of their dynamic duo on the interior, A’ja Wilson and Alaina Coates.Wilson is the reigning SEC Freshman of the Year and top-ranked recruit for the Class of 2014,1According to ESPNW and HoopGurlz rankings. and she has elevated her game in her sophomore season, becoming South Carolina’s go-to player against ranked teams. The 6-foot-5-inch forward has accounted for 25.6 percent of South Carolina’s points and 26.3 percent of its rebounds against Top 25 opponents this season. Wilson had a tendency to disappear in big games last season, but she’s now averaging 26.6 points per 40 minutes against ranked teams and has a double-double in seven of her nine games against Top 25 opponents this season, more than she had all of last season. read more

Asia remains in sharp focus commits new VCE president

first_imgIn terms of design and manufacturing, investments in China include the creation of a $30 million Volvo Technology Center in Jinan and an $88 million expansion and investment of the company’s Linyi facilities. This comes on top of the $30 million investments made in the Volvo excavator facility in Shanghai since 2003. These initiatives are joined by an ambitious programme to expand the company’s distribution network in China.“Volvo is committed to supporting the capacity, distribution and product offering in China and throughout Asia,” concluded Olney. “We will achieve this by a comprehensive program of investments in our Asian industrial operations, a strengthening of our dealer network and an expansion of Volvo and SDLG branded products that are more closely tailored to the specific needs of customers in this region.” Volvo Construction Equipment’s (VCE) new CEO Pat Olney used his first major press conference to underscore the company’s continued commitment to developing its Asia activities and customer base. Speaking at his inaugural press conference as President and CEO, Olney outlined the company’s ambitious growth strategy for China and the wider Asian region. He also used the occasion to reassure the market that there will be no radical departure from the existing and highly successful Asian strategy promoted under his predecessor’s leadership team, of which he was a senior figure. Olney was speaking in Shanghai on May 17 to Chinese journalists from leading trade and business titles, where he highlighted a package of initiatives destined to expand the company’s operations and increase its customer base in Asia. It was no coincidence that China was chosen as Olney’s first major speech as president, given the importance of the country and the wider region. The company saw revenues in the region double during 2010, making Asia its largest sales area.“Volvo is well positioned, both in China and the rest of Asia, to capitalise on the huge market opportunity and growth potential,” commented Olney. “Our dual brand approach (Volvo and SDLG) offers a unique advantage to meet the needs of a much wider customer base. We will support this approach with products dedicated to this market, using local Chinese knowledge and leveraging an expanded Asian manufacturing and distribution footprint. These products will offer superior safety, quality and environmental care, as well as offering best-in-class fuel efficiency.”VCE has maintained a heavy investment commitment in recent years. The company recently announced the introduction of its new Volvo F-Series articulated haulers, G-Series wheel loaders and a China localised EC200B crawler excavator. These come on top of a four model range of China-specific excavators – made and marketed by Volvo’s joint venture partner in China, Lingong, under the SDLG brand.Soft product and service offerings have also constantly evolved to better meet customer needs. The “Volvo Hose Service” is yet another initiative from Volvo aimed at improving machine availability for customers by allowing faster hose replacements on the machines thereby reducing the machine downtime and cut hose cost by up to 30% of the current level. As part of the Volvo Hose Service initiative all Volvo dealers in China would be equipped by state of the art Volvo approved hose making equipment.last_img read more

Comcast to offer 10amonth Internet Essentials option for lowincome families

first_imgWith everything on the Internet these days, like banking, medical appointments, bill payments, and so on, not having Internet access at home is really a pretty large burden. Plus, with the way school is taught, most kids are using the Internet to help them with their homework every night. But, what if you can’t afford Internet access? True, you can take your laptop to a place with free WiFi or you can use the Internet at a library, but Internet service providers shouldn’t be charging $50 or more a month so that those who can’t afford the monthly cost are forced to seek the service outside of their homes.Comcast is now offering a $10 a month option for low-income families that can’t afford the regularly-priced option. Comcast charges about $30 a month (for the first 6 months) for high-speed Internet with download speeds up to 20Mbps and uploads up to 2Mbps. The $10 Internet Essentials option will offer a measly 1.5Mbps download speeds and 384Kbps uploads which we admit is better than nothing if you can’t afford the extra $20 a month.To be eligible for the discounted connection, families must meet four criteria. The first is easy; you just have to be located where Comcast offers Internet service. Second, you have to have at least one child receiving free school lunches through the National School Lunch Program. Third, you have to not have subscribed to Comcast Internet service in the past 90 days and finally, you can’t have an overdue Comcast bill or unreturned equipment. If you meet all these criteria, you’re eligible for the $10 a month service.Comcast is also offering a low-cost computer for $149.99 that’s available when you initially enroll.Don’t go getting the idea that Comcast is some sort of angelic humanitarian ISP. The company is only doing this because it was part of the agreement it had to make when it acquired NBC Universal. Whether or not the company would have offered a discounted rate for low-income families had they not been more or less forced, it’s still a great offer for families that can’t afford web access.Comcast won’t charge an activation fee or an equipment rental fee, and the price is guaranteed to stay at $10 without increase. The Internet Essentials option is due to start in September and will be offered in the 39 states where Comcast is available.via PCWorldlast_img read more

Samaras casts conservatives as guarantors of countrys European course

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Prime Minister Antonis Samaras on Thursday cast New Democracy as a Europe-oriented party, following leftist SYRIZA’s overture toward the Communist Party (KKE), as the conservative pre-election campaign shifts its focus to the center ground and undecided voters.On a visit to Peristeri, a working-class district in western Athens, Samaras hailed two late statesman – conservative Constantine Karamanlis and Socialist Andreas Papandreou – for securing Greece’s position in Europe and pointed to ND’s recent coalition with PASOK and Democratic Left which he called “an unprecedented alliance for Greece which was realized precisely due to that common denominator called Europe.”The conservatives hope to capitalize on the fact that cadres of leftist SYRIZA, which is still leading in opinion polls, have been inconsistent on key issues including taxation and potential alliances. One encouraging detail for ND, according to sources, is that polls show most undecided voters wavering between a choice of ND, centrist To Potami and PASOK, not between ND and SYRIZA.Samaras said the choice for voters was not one of parties. “On January 25, we are not choosing which party we want, we are deciding which Greece we want us and our children to live in.” Samaras, who was jeered by residents in Peristeri, said he understood people’s anger. “But I know that people who have gotten wet don’t also want to drown.”In PASOK’s camp a row between leader Evangelos Venizelos and former Premier George Papandreou continued to simmer. Venizelos expressed surprise at Papandreou’s claim that he was unseated as PASOK leader in 2011. Venizelos said Papandreou had intended to propose him as a candidate for interim premier, a role eventually assumed by Lucas Papademos. “Between Petsalnikos and Papademos, he phoned me and said he would propose me as prime minister,” Venizelos said, referring to former Parliament Speaker Filippos Petsalnikos. “Would he propose as PM the person who unseated him?” he said.Source: Kathimerinilast_img read more

Chignik Lagoon Hydro Project Now Operational

first_imgPacker Creek flows down a steep slope at the site of the hydro project.Credit Dave Bendinger/KDLGThe long-anticipated hydroelectric project on Chignik Lagoon’s Packer Creek is now operational.Nathan Hill is the manager of the Lake and Peninsula Borough:“They are running 100% hydro as we speak. It’s not 100% complete, there’s some dirt work to do still, things we were waiting on for weather. But they are off of diesel right now.”Hill says the $5 million dollar hydro project is a run-of-the-river system.“Which means we take water out up at the top and put it into a pipe, and it gets piped down to a lower elevation where it goes through the turbine and then gets put back into the creek.”The unit will provide electricity to the 70-some residents of Chignik Lagoon. Hill says they may not see a drop in electricity rates right away, but getting away from diesel should lower costs in the long run.“With the cost of diesel, prices rise and fall, and we have no control over it. But with alternative energy, the goal is to at the very least stabilize the cost of energy so that it doesn’t spike.”The hydro project was funded with $4 million dollars from the Alaska Energy Authority, as well as contributions from the Borough and the village.The project has been in the works for several years, and broke ground last spring. Hill says the community plans to hold a ribbon cutting around mid-August.last_img read more

UK Muslim convert admits plotting carnage with Oxford Street attack

Photo : ReutersA Muslim convert has admitted plotting to kill more than 100 people by driving a truck into pedestrians on London’s Oxford Street, the capital’s major shopping thoroughfare.Lewis Ludlow, 26, had planned to rent the vehicle and plough it into shoppers in the bustling retail district, which attracts large numbers of tourists, during the busiest time of the week, prosecutors said.He had also considered attacking London’s Madame Tussauds wax museum and St Paul’s Cathedral.”Lewis Ludlow considers himself a soldier fighting for Daesh (Islamic State) in the UK,” Deb Walsh from the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said in a statement on Friday.”To that end, he planned to drive a van into shoppers at Oxford Street hoping to kill over 100 people. He is a serious danger to the public and accepted his guilt when faced with the prosecution’s case against him.”The CPS said Ludlow’s mobile phone was found in the storm drain of his home in Rochester, southeast of London, which had photographs showing he had carried out hostile reconnaissance in central London. There was also a picture of a handwritten oath of allegiance to Islamic State (IS).It also had videos in which Ludlow called himself “the Eagle”, and spoke of his hatred of non-believers.He was under 24-hour armed police surveillance when he was arrested and a number of torn-up notes which were found suggested Ludlow was actively involved in preparing an attack, with information about the cost of hotels near Oxford Street and renting a truck, prosecutors said.He pleaded guilty at London’s Old Bailey court to preparing to commit acts of terrorism as well as setting up Facebook and Paypal accounts to fund IS fighters based in the Philippines. He will be sentenced on 2 November.last_img read more

A Groovy Time With Evil Dead The Musical

A Groovy Time With Evil Dead The Musical

first_img Listen Obsidian TheaterA scene from Obsidian Theater’s production of Evil Dead: The Musical. At first glance, a story about violent demons, hand dismemberment, and the Book of the Dead might not sound like prime material for a musical. Yet, at the same time, the sheer campiness of Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead trilogy fits the bill perfectly.Combining elements of all three original films, Evil Dead: The Musical follows a group of college students who spend spring break at a creepy, abandoned cabin in the woods. They find the fabled Necronomicon (the aforementioned Book of the Dead), accidentally summon demons, and are slowly picked off and transformed into sardonic, wit demons that must then be dispatched by the remaining protagonist, Ash Williams.And while the subject matter might sound a little dark, it’s treated with irreverence and wit — and deliberately doesn’t take itself too seriously.Houston’s Obsidian Theater is performing the show through Oct. 27, and, in the audio above, Houston Matters producer Joshua Zinn talks with directors Tom Stell and Kelsey McMillan about paying homage to Raimi’s original trilogy and what makes it suitable for musical adaptation.– / 5 Xcenter_img 00:00 /07:23 To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Sharelast_img read more

Police issue new request for suspects in Low killing to be handed

Police issue new request for suspects in Low killing to be handed

first_imgPolice have again requested the authorities in the north hand over one of the prime suspects for the murder of George Law,22, the British tourist who was stabbed in August 2016 in Ayia Napa.The two suspects – Mehmet Akpinar, 23, and Sali Musa Ahmet, 44 – had crossed to the north after the incident where they were arrested a few days later, and were put on trial by a Turkish military court on charges of illegally trespassing into a military zone, but not for the killing. Akpinar is, according to reports a holder of Turkish citizenship, while his father is a citizen of the north, while both Ahmet’s parents hold citizenship there.Arrest warrants issued by Cyprus police for the two men are still outstanding, with authorities in the north refusing to hand over the two fugitives despite reports that the two had admitted to their involvement in the killing. The two suspects were reportedly allowed to leave the north after their release without being charged.Akpinar was reportedly arrested recently in the north, again for illegally trespassing into a military zone and is in custody.Police said on Saturday that they had issued their latest request on Thursday through the bicommunal committee on crime – to hand Akpinar over but have yet to receive an answer.Low, an estate agent from Dartford, in Kent, and his friend Ben Barker were walking along Grigori Afxentiou Street in Ayia Napa on August 14, 2016 when they were attacked allegedly by two suspects armed with knives who then fled. Low was killed following a stab wound to his neck, which severed his carotid artery. Barker, who was stabbed in the back four times, survived.Low’s family and friends have been since requesting authorities in the UK to exert pressure on Turkey to hand over the two accused men to stand trial for the murder and attempted murder of the two British citizens.Last December, Britain’s prime minister said that Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson had raised the issue of northern Cyprus’ refusal to hand over to the Republic the two suspects during his visit to the island the previous month.  You May LikeLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
