Provinces feeling left out of child welfare reform Saskatchewan minister

first_imgThe Canadian Press SASKATOON — Saskatchewan’s Minister of Social Services says he and his provincial and territorial counterparts are feeling left out of Ottawa’s plan to reform child welfare.Paul Merriman and other social services ministers met in Saskatoon this week to discuss Bill C-92, legislation aimed at reducing the over-representation of Indigenous children in foster care.Merriman says it’s concerning they were unable to speak directly with federal Minister of Indigenous Services Seamus O’Regan without representatives from national Indigenous organizations in the room.Merriman says he is concerned about the implementation of the legislation, as well as its timing and what funding will be attached.He believes there are many unknowns, such as what will happen to the province’s existing agreements with First Nations that are delivering child and family services.Merriman says when it comes to the bill, Ottawa is focusing on what’s gone wrong with provincial child welfare, like the Sixties Scoop, and not factoring in improvements made since.The Federation of Soverign Indigenous Nations has called Saskatchewan’s child care situation a crisis.last_img read more

Some First Nations could quit AFN in wake of Atleo victory Nelson

first_imgAPTN National NewsTORONTO–Up to 10 First Nations could pull away from the Assembly of First Nation as a result of Shawn Atleo’s expected national chief election victory, says Terry Nelson, a former Ojibway chief and candidate who withdrew from the race after the second ballot.Nelson said there is a handful of chiefs who truly believe that the AFN is “assimilationist” and don’t want to be part of the organization under Atleo’s leadership.“Some of the chiefs are going to be pretty clear that the AFN is assimilationist as far as they are concerned and they are saying that some of them will be pulling out and some announcements are going to be made this week,” said Nelson.Nelson said he had heard up to 10 First Nations, primarily in the prairies, could pull away.Nelson withdrew from the race after getting only 25 votes on the second ballot, down from the 35 he received after the first round of voting.Atleo missed re-election by three votes after getting 318 votes after the second ballot, shy of the magic number of 321 he needed to get the 60 per cent necessary to claim victory.Nelson threw his support behind Mi’kmaq lawyer and Ryerson professor Pam Palmater who ran second behind Atleo on both ballots, getting 95 and 107 votes.Nelson said it’s “mathematically impossible” to beat Atleo at this point.“It’s a lost vote,” said Nelson. “The government has to understand there is a lot of anger and frustration and the election was about the anger people are feeling and frustration.”Still, Palmater’s team was clawing for every last vote.“It’s three votes away but never say die,” said a Palmater campaign official.Palmater managed to land the endorsement of Mohawk activist Ellen Gabriel after she dropped off following the second ballot, getting 17 votes.Palmater’s campaign was also hoping to woo former Treaty 3 grand chief Diane Kelly’s endorsement.Kelly, however, decided not to back anyone. She called it quits after the second ballot after seeing her vote total drop to 34 on the second ballot from 39 she got in the first round of voting.Dene Nation National Chief Bill Erasmus is still in the race, after seeing his vote total rise to 34 on the second ballot from 29 on the first.Little Black Bear First Nation Chief Perry Bellegarde said it was time for all Atleo’s opponents to fold their campaigns. Bellegarde battled Atleo over eight ballots in 2009.“Now it’s on the third ballot, it’s very close. I think a lot of our chiefs are saying it’s only three votes away from the 60 per cent…I think we should mandate the national chief, let’s close our circle back and get united,” said Bellegard, who is in the running to lead the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations. “To me it’s almost inevitable now with only three votes away. Our national chief will be Shawn Atleo. The candidates hanging on are very principled…but at some point there is a point and we are probably at that point.”Responding to Nelson’s statement that some communities were considering pulling out of the AFN, Bellegarde said it would be better if First Nations all pulled together.“To me you try to find processes that unite our people rather than divide and there is more common ground that brings us together than divide us,” he said. “If people want to assert their jurisdiction and sovereignty as a First Nations community and pull out of the AFN, that is their right.”last_img read more

Only 2% automotive firms in India implementing AI

first_imgMumbai: Just two per cent of major automotive companies in India are implementing artificial intelligence (AI) projects compared with 25 per cent in the US and 9 per cent in China, according to the French technology services major Capgemini. Globally, just 10 per cent of major automotive companies are implementing AI projects, with many falling short of an opportunity that could increase operating profit by up to 16 per cent, said the report. Since 2017, the number of automotive companies that have successfully scaled up AI implementation has increased only marginally, from 7 per cent to 10 per cent. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalHowever, more significant has been the increase in companies not using AI, from 26 per cent to 39 per cent, the findings showed. According to the report from the Capgemini Research Institute, just 26 per cent of companies are now piloting AI projects, down from 41 per cent in 2017. “These findings show the progress of AI in the automotive industry has hit a speedbump,” said Markus Winkler, Executive Vice-President, Global Head of Automotive at Capgemini. “While some companies are enjoying considerable success, others have struggled to focus on the most effective use cases, vehicle manufacturers need to start seeing AI not as a standalone opportunity, but as a strategic capability required to shape the future which they must organise investment, talent and governance around,” Winkler said.last_img read more

UN warns of risk of African swine fever in Caucasus region

Following the first-ever detection of African swine fever (ASF)in Ukraine, the United Nations is warning that while control measures appear to have temporarily halted the disease’s spread, it has established a firm foothold in the Caucasus and poses an ongoing risk to neighbouring areas. “National and local authorities in the entire region should scale up their prevention measures and be ready to respond in case of further outbreaks,” the UN Food and Agriculture Organization’s (FAO) Chief Veterinary Officer, Juan Lubroth, said in a news release. “This could be the first of more outbreaks to come, according to our disease analyses.”In addition to some other parts of Ukraine, nearby countries like Moldova, Kazakhstan and Latvia – which have large pig populations raised on household or family farms, and oftentimes weak bio-security protocols – are also now at high risk of the disease’s introduction, according to FAO. ASF does not affect humans, but mortalities in domestic pigs can be extremely high. In 2011, up to 300,000 pigs died or were culled as a result of ASF outbreaks in the Russian Federation, incurring an estimated $240 million in economic losses.Mr. Lubroth noted that Ukraine has responded quickly, implementing sanitary measures, destroying affected pigs and imposing a quarantine zone around the village where the outbreaks occurred. Most importantly, he added, Ukraine has paid farmers compensation for pigs that were slaughtered and properly disposed of, so that poor families that depend on pig-raising for food and income are not left ruined by the loss of their pigs. All countries at risk should stand ready to detect any ASF outbreaks as soon as they occur and respond in a similarly proactive fashion, according to FAO. Prior to being introduced to the Caucasus in 2007, ASF had been confined for several decades to the African continent and the Italian island of Sardinia. Today, however, it is considered endemic in parts of the Russian Federation and some countries in the Caucasus region, including Georgia and Armenia. read more

Ohio State womens soccer uses late goal to top Purdue 32

The OSU women’s soccer team participates in ‘Carmen Ohio’ following a 3-2 win over Purdue on Oct. 8 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.Credit: Anbo Yao / Lantern photographerThe Ohio State women’s soccer team (7-3-3, 2-2-2) tallied its first victory since Sept. 25 on Thursday evening after the Buckeyes topped the Purdue Boilermakers 3-2. The Buckeyes were first to score when sophomore forward Sammy Edwards finished from 10 yards in the center of the box off an assist from junior forward Lindsay Agnew in just the third minute of play. OSU came out of the gates with a lot of energy, evident by the quick score. “I think we know we are in a tough spot in the standings right now, so we needed to come out this weekend and get two wins,” junior forward Nichelle Prince said. “So today was the first day of that and we just really bought it and everyone was on their game today.”OSU maintained its lead for the next 10 minutes before the Boilermakers leveled the match on sophomore midfielder/forward Erika Arkans’ shot from 10 yards out. The half continued with back and forth play with multiple opportunities for both teams to score. OSU coach Lori Walker said she was pleased with the improvements her team made to find success in Thursday’s matchup. “I’m really proud of the effort that they put in tonight, and it’s something that we’ve really been asking them to raise every single game, every day,” Walker said. “We’ve tried to make practices as enjoyable as possible the last week and a half, and I really think that it really started to show today.”Senior captain midfielder Michela Paradiso scored the Buckeyes’ next goal in the 34th minute, her second goal of the season.The Scarlet and Gray headed into halftime leading the Boilermakers 2-1, while also holding an 8-5 advantage in shots, including 5-1 on goal. While holding the edge, the Buckeyes knew at halftime that the game was far from over. “It’s a 90-minute game. Forty-five minutes we have given our heart and our soul, but we’ve got to come out and do that again,” Walker said. “We haven’t really done that; this is one of the first games I feel like we’ve put all the pieces together over the 90 minutes.”Prince played an aggressive and dominant game, which earned her effusive praise from Walker.  “She has so many just special, God-given talents, and what we really try to do is encourage her to utilize them,” Walker said. “Just seeing her with a smile on her face because she’s back at her full pace, if you will, I was just really pleased with what she has been giving our team.” The Boilermakers tied the game in the 61st minute when junior forward Maddy Williams shot from 20 yards out, deflecting off the hand of OSU freshman goalkeeper Devon Kerr and into the back of the net. Prince said this was the Buckeyes’ time to show what they’re made of. “It’s hard when you’re under pressure. You can either crack or step up to the plate, and I think that’s what we did,” Prince said. “We came to play today and we weren’t afraid. We just played our game and came out really hard.”Despite giving up the tying goal, OSU did not back down. In the 67th minute, sophomore midfielder Nikki Walts netted her fourth goal of the season after she curled a shot from 25 yards inside the right post to give the Buckeyes the lead.With the lead in hand, OSU continued to bring pressure and intensity until the very end. “We challenged them and basically tried to treat this like a championship game,” Walker said. “This game really matters, not that any other game doesn’t matter, but this one was a critical one.”The Buckeyes will look to continue their winning ways on Sunday, as they are set to play host to the Maryland Terrapins at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. read more

Battlefield 4 multiplayer will have dynamic battlefields Dice calls Levo

first_imgMultiplayer, online first-person shooters have a very well established set of basic gameplay rules. You either play alone or in teams killing opponents and carrying out the odd task like defusing a bomb. For next-gen platforms, we’re going to get more of the same from games carrying the Battlefield and Call of Duty names, as well as from new entrant Titanfall.But EA and Dice are trying to infuse something new into Battlefield 4 in the form of a new layer of dynamically changing play areas. It’s being called Levolution, and while the name may sound ridiculous, the features it introduces promise to offer something new to the gameplay.Levolution can be split into two distinct parts. The first is interactive environments that can change based on the actions of each player. For example, blowing up a section of a building to create a new path, permanently blocking a road from use by vehicles, or embarrassing another player by trapping before killing them. That interaction with the environment also extends to giving yourself away, though. Cars have alarms that can go off if you bump them, buildings may have metal detectors your weapons will set off. When they do, your enemy knows where you are.The second part is ambient changes, which the player doesn’t control. This can be as simple as changing from day to night, or the weather shifting from bright sunlight to heavy rain. In each case the environments will be effected, visibility will change, even footfall will be more or less noticeable.At the other end of the spectrum, disaster can strike. Dice intends to flood whole cities, set buildings on fire, and basically cause havoc on a map while it’s in play. It’s enough to shift the balance of power from one team to another depending on how each handles the changing situation.How well this new layer of interaction works won’t be known until players have logged thousands of hours in each of the new maps. But one thing is for sure, understanding each environment is going to be that much harder than before because it can change at any time.last_img read more

Mexican troops face civilian trial for 22 deaths

first_imgSeven Mexican soldiers being held in the June killings of 22 suspected criminals will be tried by a civilian judge, three of them for homicide, federal justice officials said Sunday.The troops were ordered arrested Friday by a Mexico state judge for dereliction of duty in the June 30 incident.Three of them are charged with aggravated homicide, and one of them with allowing a crime to take place. For now, the soldiers are jailed in a military detention center. In September, a witness said the gun battle itself had left only one dead, and the other 21 were killed in cold blood by the soldiers — including her 15-year-old daughter.The case adds to the shock surrounding a more recent case of 43 students who went missing in the southern town of Iguala in late September. They were allegedly taken away and killed by police linked to a drug cartel.If confirmed, the incident would mark one of the worst horrors in a drug war that has left more than 80,000 people dead since the conflict ramped up in 2006.last_img read more

The first 35 meetings between the Arizona Cardinal

first_imgThe first 35 meetings between the Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers saw a fairly even split, with Arizona going 16-19 in the rivalry.But for a matchup to be considered a rivalry, both teams need to be winning at nearly the same rate. And in that case, the meetings between Arizona and San Francisco over the last five years resemble more of a fly vs. fly swatter rivalry.The 49ers are 9-1 in their last 10 games against the Cardinals, with wins ranging from a game-winning field goal as time expires to their more-frequent blowout victories. As the Cardinals and 49ers prepare for Sunday’s divisional battle in Arizona, we give you some of the numbers that have defined the last 10 games between these NFC West opponents:7:The Cardinals have struggled mightily with even keeping the last 10 games close against the 49ers, as seven of the meetings, all San Francisco wins, have been decided by double-digits. 106.4:Niners quarterback Colin Kaepernick has not been fazed by Arizona’s normally stout defense, averaging a 106.4 passer rating in his three career games against the team. San Francisco has won all of Kaepernick’s starts, with the quarterback throwing six touchdowns and only two interceptions over that time.2:Passing yards have been at a premium in these last 10 meetings, with Carson Palmer and Colin Kaepernick, both in last season’s finale, being the only quarterbacks to exceed 300 passing yards in a game.5-1:Niners coach Jim Harbaugh has made the most of his games against Arizona, going 5-1 against the team since he joined San Francisco in 2011. The Cardinals haven’t even kept the games very close against Harbaugh’s Niners, losing by an average of 13.2 points in those games. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact – 23:The turnover battle is often considered a massive factor in the outcome of games, and lately the Cardinals have failed at this miserably against the 49ers. Arizona has a -23 turnover margin over their last 10 games against San Francisco, losing the turnover battle in every game during that span.129.9:From Frank Gore to Brian Westbrook to Anthony Dixon, 49ers who run the ball against the Cardinals do not seem to find much resistance. The Niners have averaged 129.9 rushing yards per game over the last five years against Arizona, more than doubling the Cardinals 60.5 rushing yards per game over the same period.6:Arizona pass-catchers have been able to make their presence known in the matchups despite the losses, with six individual 100-yard receiving games over the last five seasons. Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald has had four such games over that span, personally matching the 49ers’ total in the category.14:Who needs to get to the red zone when you can score from anywhere on the field? This could be the mantra for both teams, as they have scored 14 offensive touchdowns from more than 30 yards out in their last 10 meetings.5:A key to outscoring opponents is, you know, scoring. The Cardinals have not been able to reach double digits in five of their games against San Francisco since 2009.
