(Truth and Reconciliation Commission Commissioner Wilton Littlechild, left, Chair Murray Sinclair, centre, and Commissioner Marie Wilson, right. APTN/File)Brandi Morin APTN National NewsOne of the commissioners with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) says climate change and reconciliation go hand-in-hand.Wilton Littlechild, one of three commissioners behind the ground-breaking TRC, says he hopes that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau incorporates the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) into Canada’s climate change strategy.“He (Trudeau) says that nothing is more important to him and to Canada than a total renewal of the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous,” said Littlechild. “When he said (the relationship) it’s about respect, recognition of rights, cooperation and partnership- the recognition of rights, to me, that includes Treaty rights, the rights under UNDRIP and human rights.”Littlechild helped to write UNDRIP and attended the COP21 climate meeting in Paris last December to advocate Indigenous rights to be included in an international climate deal to slow the rising global temperature.From Paris, Trudeau declared to the world that Indigenous peoples can help care for the planet. He said that Indigenous people were taking a leadership role on the issue and that Indigenous knowledge could lead to climate solutions.Those words did not match the outcome of last week’s climate change talks between Trudeau, premiers and Indigenous leaders, according to chiefs who attended the talks. Some Chiefs said they felt like they were once again left out of high level decision-making tables that affect their rights.“They’ve (Trudeau government) stated publicly about a renewed relationship. So, if it’s so centrally important to Canada and himself (Trudeau) then why were the chiefs shut out?” said Littlechild.Littlechild says Indigenous rights are already being violated by climate change and the decisions made by Canada about how to deal with environmental crisis.“We have a right to participate in decision making, not just to be consulted, and not just to be invited to meetings. That means too that any discussions regarding climate change or any other matter that affects us, we need to be there as full partners,” said Littlechild.Littlechild said the TRC concluded that reconciliation is about partnership. At the very first national TRC meeting the main theme was about the “sacred” teaching of respect, he said.He said climate change was mentioned in the testimony of some survivors during the TRC hearings.“I remember one elder saying, ‘You know, when we were separated from our parents, yes that was traumatic, but we were also separated from the land, and in order to heal, we need to go back to the land and we need to protect mother earth,’” said Littlechild.Trudeau is in Washington DC where he is expected to endorse a continental strategy on climate change at his first formal bilateral meeting with U.S. President Barack Obama on Thursday.Littlechild wonders if Trudeau will be thinking of Canada’s treaty and Indigenous rights when signing off on the expected continental strategy.“Look at the rivers that are being polluted to the point where we can’t drink the water anymore as we used to in terms of fresh water, and the grass, the herbs and the medicines and the sweet grass that we use are also being impacted by contamination,” said Littlechild. “There’s even a spiritual connection to the treaty rights with climate change. When you talk about the right to hunt, to fish and gather, the right to food, the right to sustenance, that’s a treaty right and that’s impacted when the foods the animals are eating are contaminated.”The Trudeau government has promised to implement all the TRC’s calls to action.The TRC was created by the multi-billion dollars Indian residential school settlement between survivors, Ottawa and the firstname.lastname@example.org@songstress28
The international bank note society has chosen Canada’s new $10 bill as the banknote of the year.The purple polymer bill features Nova Scotia human rights icon Viola Desmond, a map of Halifax’s historic north end and the Canadian museum for human rights in Winnipeg.It’s Canada’s first vertically-oriented banknote and the first to feature a black person and a non-royal woman. Desmond was arrested in 1946, after refusing to leave the whites-only section of a movie theatre in Nova Scotia.The bank note society also honoured notes from Switzerland, Norway, Russia and Solomon Islands.
Jennifer Lopez to open cellphone stores aimed at Latinos, selling Verizon service AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – “Jenny from the Block” wants the block to buy Verizon phones from her.Singer and actress Jennifer Lopez on Wednesday announced she’s opening a chain of 15 cellphone stores and a website under the Viva Movil brand. The aim is to sell Verizon phones and services to Latinos.The first store will open in New York on June 15, with others following in Los Angeles and Miami. The stores will have bilingual staff and provide a “culturally relevant shopping experience,” Viva Movil said.Viva Movil will be an authorized Verizon reseller, with the same prices and plans as regular Verizon stores.Lopez is the majority owner and “chief creative officer” of Viva Movil. She said Viva Movil and its Facebook page will be a way for fans to connect with her.“Latinos need a place to go and they need to be catered to because it is such a growing, growing demographic and market and people want to capture that, and they deserve to be catered to,” Lopez said in an interview.Lopez is no stranger to business. She owns a film and television production company and has launched clothing and perfume lines.She said she wasn’t looking specifically to get into wireless — “it was just one of those things where you sit down with people and you start spitballing.”Marketing cellphone service specifically to Latinos has not been a winning formula so far in the U.S. One company targeting Spanish speakers, Movida Communications, raised $40 million in 2007 and filed for bankruptcy the following year.Most attempts to cater to Latinos have focused on low-cost, no-contract service. By partnering with Verizon, Lopez is hitching her business to a company that’s focused on premium, contract-based service, backed by a top-rated wireless network.The U.S. wireless market does have a large but low-profile Latin American presence: Mexican cellphone company America Movil owns Tracfone, the largest provider of no-contract service, with 23 million phones active. That service isn’t marketed specifically to Latinos.___AP Entertainment Writer Sandy Cohen contributed to this report from Los Angeles. by Peter Svensson, The Associated Press Posted May 22, 2013 5:43 pm MDT
“This country has sent explorers out into this world – and welcomed travellers onto its territory. The Spanish spirit of international engagement won out over war and dictatorship when Spain joined the United Nations sixty years ago. Even before that milestone, a number of Spaniards served in our ranks,” said Mr. Ban in his remarks at the ceremony marking Spain’s 60th anniversary in the UN. The UN chief applauded Spain for its six decades of principled leadership and called for stronger partnerships between the country and the UN “so that this proud country can lead even more on the global stage- and help usher in a better future.” He thanked Spain for sending many top officials to the UN, including outgoing Special Representative for Libya, Mr. Bernardino León, and the head of United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UNHABITAT), Mr. Joan Clos, and Under-Secretary-General for Public Information, Ms. Cristina Gallach. “I thank His Majesty Don Felipe and Her Majesty Doña Letizia – a UN Special Ambassador on Nutrition – for advancing sustainable development, human rights and cross-cultural understanding,” said Mr. Ban. He further added that the country also has made significant contributions in working towards advancement of women and security.

UN Photo/Amanda Voisard ‹ ›“I thank Prime Minister Rajoy for chairing the session earlier this month on women, peace and security. I was especially moved when he said that in conflicts, it is more dangerous to be a woman than a soldier,” said the UN Chief. He also applauded Spain for establishing the United Nations Alliance of Civilization and specifically commended its work in tackling extremism. “Spain has worked to address the causes of terrorism and violent extremism. I highly again commend Madrid for hosting high-level meetings in July on stemming the flow of foreign terrorist fighters. Let’s unite our forces,” said Mr. Ban. Further he congratulated the country for its historic efforts made in helping the UN reach the MDGs and in developing the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Mr. Ban specified that that such contributions do not merely depict support for the UN and stressed that it represents the “rich culture of Spain at its best – illuminated for a global cause for peace.”In addition, Mr. Ban commended Spain’s efforts in joining the United Nations on its 70th Anniversary by turning its monuments to the UN Blue from the City Hall in Madrid to the aqueduct in Segovia, from Gaudis’s landmarks in Barcelona to Toledo to Granada to Murcia.Later in the day, the UN chief attended a private sector meeting where he underlined the important role that business has in helping to achieve the SDGs. “The Global Compact Network Spain is the largest of the country networks, representing almost two thousand companies, large and small,” Mr. Ban told Chief Executive Officers. “Your network has a solid record of being inclusive and advancing principled business.” He pointed out that growth has come not just through engaging the largest companies, but also with the smallest. “We will need all hands on deck to implement the new 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development,” he insisted, adding that worldwide, the business community is mobilizing “as never before.” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon (centre) addresses the meeting of CEOs of the Global Compact Network Spain.

On Friday, UN Secretary-General António Guterres hailed Timor-Leste on the 20th anniversary of 1999 ‘independence’ poll.Twenty years since a people’s vote put Timor-Leste “firmly on the path of independence”, Mr. Guterres extended his congratulations to the country for its “tremendous achievements”.In a statement issued by his Office to coincide with the anniversary, the Secretary-General cheered the fact that the country has held four peaceful elections, built new institutions, grown the economy and laid the “foundations for reconciliation, democracy and stability”.Timor-Leste’s independence from Indonesia was recognized in 2002 and overseen by UN peacekeepers, to prevent further bloodshed amid clashes between opponents of the popular vote.Enforced disappearances a ‘grave violation of human rights’ As the number of Ebola virus epidemic infections continues to climb in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), a new case of the disease has been identified in neighbouring Uganda, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Friday.In June, two people died from Ebola in Uganda after they had crossed the border from eastern DRC. A third individual from the same family died after he was sent back to DRC.Speaking in Geneva, WHO spokesperson Fadela Chaib confirmed that the individual, a child, had been stopped in a routine border check at Mpondwe in western Uganda, reportedly on Wednesday.“This girl is aged nine years old…she’s a Congolese girl, so she’s from DRC. She was tested positive for Ebola in Uganda and she came to seek help from DRC to seek medical care on a motorbike.”As Yemen relief operations face funding gap, timing of surge in violence ‘couldn’t be worse’ The situation in Yemen is “very fragile”, the top United Nations humanitarian official there has warned, noting that as many as 13 people have been killed and at least 70 wounded over the past three days during clashes in two governorates.“Families are again trapped in their homes by fighting, unable to secure food and reach medical care,” said Lise Grande, Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen, said on Thursday, referring to Aden and Abyan.Read the full story here.Guterres hails Timor-Leste on the 20th anniversary of 1999 ‘independence’ poll More than half of world’s refugee children ‘do not get an education’, warns UNHCR On Friday, the world marked the International Day of the Victims of Enforced Disappearances, as it recognized that this has been frequently used as a strategy to spread terror. “Enforced disappearance can be misperceived as an issue of the past, but many cases remain unresolved and new ones continue to arise”, Secretary-General António Guterres said in his message for the day. Uncertainty as to the whereabouts and fate of a friend, family member or loved one causes great psychological distress. Noting that these disappearances “have a profound impact on the lives of those searching for the victims”, the UN chief maintained “we must end this suffering”.The Committee and the Working Group on Enforced Disappearances – the UN’s key mechanisms to address this matter – receive new cases daily, “many in the context of the fight against organized crime and terrorism”.

Naomi Oveson Cox, age 103, died peacefully September 6, 2019, in her sunshine room at the home of her grandchildren, Kelly and Matt Fraughton, in Levan, Utah. She was born April 13, 1916, in Cleveland, Utah to Clarence D. Oveson and Anna Johanna Johnson Oveson, the fourth of nine children.She married her beloved eternal companion, C. Dean Cox, on December 3, 1937 in Uintah County, Utah. They were sealed in the Salt Lake City Temple of The Church of Jesus Chris of Latter-day Saints on March 30, 1944. They were blessed with 3 children, Dale C. Cox (Ottiena Bos, deceased), Dorine C. Goodro (Robert), and Nedine Mitchell, 10 grandchildren, 32 great-grandchildren, and 16 great-great grandchildren.Dean and Naomi began their married life in LaPoint, Utah and later moved to Mt. Emmons where Naomi worked in the school lunch and Dean ran the power plant and later managed Moon Lake Electric. In 1947 they moved to Crescent (Sandy), Utah, where Naomi was a tailor at The Paris department store for many years, as well as worked raising chickens, cattle, and horses with Dean. After retiring they moved to their farm in Lake Shore, Utah where they lived for many years. After the death of her beloved companion, Dean, Naomi moved to West Jordan with her daughter, Nedine, and granddaughter, Valorie, making many friends with neighbors and ward members.She loved the Lord and happily filled many ward and temple callings. In her late 80’s she was ward librarian and helped with the bulletin. She was a favorite neighbor to many and willingly helped anyone in need.Naomi will be greatly missed. Her smile, stories, singing, laughter, optimism, and testimony will forever be in our hearts. What a wonderful reunion there was as she rejoined her beloved family who had gone before. What wonderful memories we have of her breaking into song or telling a story and then with a twinkle in her eye say, “Do you believe that?” and laugh.Surviving Naomi are her children, 10 grandchildren, 32 great-grandchildren, 16 great-great grandchildren, a sister, Marie Oveson Oviatt, and sister-in-law, Ralene Cramer Oveson, both of Cleveland, Utah. Naomi was preceded in death by her parents,Clarence and Hannah Oveson, brothers Conrad, Alonzo, and Ellis C. Oveson; sisters Leola O. Guyman, Margaret O. Drossis, Claudia O. Draper, Valera O. Otteson, daughter-in-law Otienna Bos Cox, great-grandson Clint J. Wall, great-grandson Jeremy Goodro-Moulin, and 7 sisters-in-law and 5 brothers-in-law. She had many nieces and nephews who all held a special place in her heart.The family is so grateful for all those who cared for Naomi. For the 13 years of wonderful care that granddaughter Valorie and daughter Nedi gave her while she lived with them, daughter Dodi and husband, Bob, Granddaughter Kelly and her husband, Matt; granddaughters Kim Kapp and Donna Dwyer; Cassi Richmond, a special friend and skilled caretaker/day brightener and little Hadley who would run in and say “Hi, Brama, I hep.” and all those at CVMC Home Health Care and Hospice who so kindly and efficiently managed all of her needs. Because of all the wonderful care she received she was able to enjoy some of Kelly’s delicious baked potato soup (“Mmm, that’s good.” she said.) and had a drink (to wet her whistle) and went to sleep. What a wonderful blessing to have been part of her life. We can honestly say, “Having been born of goodly parents”.Naomi’s funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, September 14, 2019 at Larkin Mortuary Sunset Gardens at 1950 East Dimple Dell Road (10600 South), Sandy. Family and friends may visit with the family there beginning at 9:30 am. Services will be followed by interment at Larkin Sunset Gardens. Condolences may be expressed to the family at www.LarkinMortuary.com.Following interment everyone is invited to share memories at a lunch at Bell Canyon Park pavilion, 11400 S 1700 E, just a few blocks south of Sunset Gardens.
Check out our latest soccer predictions. We write to you with elbows tucked, stroopwafels out — and a new understanding of what’s possible in soccer. Just half of the second-leg games in the Champions League’s round of 16 are complete, and already two titans of the sport are gone thanks to a youthful rebellion and instant replay. The prediction models are as surprised as the rest of us.First, to Real Madrid’s dismantling Tuesday. Coming into the second leg of its tie against Ajax, Madrid led 2-1 and had a 75 percent chance of moving on in a tournament the club has won four of the past five years. Ajax was technically better than Madrid in the first leg, and our model gave the Dutch team some respect as a result. But it’s one thing to be Madrid’s equal and another to beat it 4-1 at the Bernabeu, exposing seemingly each of Los Blancos’ flaws since they lost Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus at the end of last season. Led by homegrown phenoms Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt, Ajax played the platonic ideal of free-flowing soccer, pirouetting through the midfield and capitalizing on Madrid’s missing captain, Sergio Ramos, who purposely got himself booked at the end of the first leg so he could be fresh (and cardless) for the quarterfinals. Instead of living to fight another day, Ramos serves as a cautionary tale.Ajax’s win was surprising; Manchester United’s was almost inconceivable. Heading into its second leg against Paris Saint-Germain, Man U had just a 3 percent chance of moving on — and its play on Wednesday showed why. United lost the possession game 72 percent to 28 percent and trailed substantially in shots. This did not appear to be a team that could overcome a 2-0 deficit from the first leg. Yet PSG gifted Man U two goals on defensive errors and could manage only one first-half goal of its own, putting United just one goal from winning on away goals. But Man U couldn’t gain much possession, let alone break through for a goal. But then the replay gods took pity. In the 90th minute, United’s Diogo Dalot fired the ball in the general direction of PSG’s goal, and PSG’s Presnel Kimpembe leapt to block it once it had crossed into the box. His elbow came with him, and as it separated from his chest, it knocked into the ball. The referees initially called a corner but then went to video review. The (controversial) judgment changed the call to a handball. A penalty shot was awarded, and Marcus Rashford converted it for a tie-breaking third road goal. The final whistle blew a few minutes later, and Manchester United had somehow pulled off a miracle.Two other games happened, we’ve been told. Porto had its own late drama Wednesday against Roma, including another penalty awarded on video review; the Portuguese squad wasn’t favored to move on heading into the match. And on Tuesday, Tottenham finished off Borussia Dortmund as calmly as Harry Kane finishes his penalty kicks.All of this leaves some havoc in our projections, and we still have four games to go in this round. Buckle up, and please keep your elbows inside the vehicle at all times.
Ohio State redshirt-junior Logan Stieber takes down Notre Dame College sophomore Maurice Miller in the 141-pound match Nov. 15 at St. John Arena. OSU won, 29-11.Credit: Ethan Day / Lantern photographerA pair of Ohio State wrestlers are the Big Ten’s best in their respective weight classes.Senior Nick Heflin and redshirt-junior Logan Stieber joined exclusive company Sunday, taking home the Big Ten Championship in the 197-pound and 141-pound weight classes at the Kohl Center in Madison, Wis., according to an OSU press release.Steiber defeated Penn State freshman Zain Retherford, 7-3, in the 141-pound championship match to capture his third-straight conference crown. He became just the second OSU wrestler in program history to do so, joining Kevin Randleman, who wrestled for the Buckeyes from 1991-93.Steiber’s victory against Retherford comes as a bit of payback, as Retherford defeated the three-time conference champion in Dec. 15 in what was his first loss in just more than a year.Steiber is now 25-1 on the season, having won 16 consecutive matches since falling to Zetherford in December.Heflin was the conference runner up at 174 pounds in 2011, but took down Penn State sophomore Morgan McIntosh, 5-3, to capture the title Sunday.The senior has now won 14 straight matches, and the victory against McIntosh was the 95th of his career.With their victories, Steiber and Heflin automatically qualify for the 2014 NCAA Championships, set to take place March 20-22 in Oklahoma City.A total of five other Buckeyes also qualified for the NCAAs with their respective performances Sunday — 184-pound redshirt-sophomore Kenny Courts, 125-pound redshirt-freshman Nick Roberts, 133-pound Johnni DiJulius, 174-pound sophomore Mark Martin and heavyweight redshirt-freshman Nick Tavanello. Redshirt-senior Ian Paddock is set to wrestle in the 149-pound weight class as well after earning an at-large bid Wednesday.The Buckeyes finished fourth as a team with 86.5 points. Penn State took home the team championship with 140.5 points.

File PhotoToday (Monday) marks the 10th anniversary of the atrocious carnage at Pilkhana BDR headquarters in which a total of 74 people, including 57 army officers, were killed in 2009.On 27 November 2017, the High Court announced the verdict in which it awarded death penalty to 139, life sentence to 185, and different jail terms to 200 for their involvement in the massacre during the mutiny.The HC, however, is yet to release the full text of the verdict.On Sunday, defence lawyers Aminul Islam and Shamim Sikder told Prothom Alo that the full text of the HC verdict has not been released yet.File PhotoThey also said the convicted accused would plea before the Appellate Division after they receive the copy of the HC verdict’s full text.Attorney general Mahbubey Alam also said, “As far I know defence lawyers have not yet received the verdict’s copy.”On 25 February, 2009, several hundred Bangladesh Rifles (now BGB) men rose up in armed revolt at Darbar Hall during the three-day ‘BDR Week’ inside the Pilkhana headquarters and killed 74 people, including 57 deputed army officers.The mutiny finally ended the following day (26 Feb) with the surrender of the firearms, ammunition and grenades through negotiation between the government and the BDR rebels.File PhotoFollowing the mutiny, the paramilitary force was renamed Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB).A total of 58 cases were filed—one for serious crimes, including murder and looting, and the rest for mutiny, in connection with the incident.Some 152 people were sentenced to death and 423 others to different jail terms and 277 others acquitted in the country’s largest-ever killing case by a lower court.

It’s also an issue in Fort Bend County and officials there are hoping to do something about it.This weekend, Fort Bend County Health and Human Services is having a big tire recycling event where residents can dispose of tires for free. Usually the county collects a fee.Spokeswoman Yaneth Calderon said one of their big concerns is rainwater that collects in discarded tires.“We’ve had quite a bit of rain here in the last few weeks,” explained Calderon. “And with the summer coming up and the warmer weather, it’s definitely the perfect combination for mosquitoes to breed.”And once mosquitoes start breeding, that could lead to the spread of diseases like West Nile, Zika, and Chikungunya.“We definitely want to reduce the mosquito population now before we do see a surge of them in the summer months,” added Calderon.That tire recycling event is this Saturday, April 7, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the county annex in Rosenberg.

© 2012 PhysOrg.com At tech events, wearable displays that have showcased in the form of high-tech visors and chunky spectacles or goggles seem to draw measured responses—impressive inventions for private media viewing at home or on the go but silly-looking or even evocative of special-recovery shades for postoperative elderly outpatients. We noticed at least one reference to “grandma glasses.” Epson’s Moverio BT-100 Wearable Display do not look exactly like designer sunglasses but they do have loaded features for gadget collectors who do not think $699.99 is an unthinkable price. Explore further Epson packs features into new Android HMD More information: www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/jsp/Moverio/Home.do According to reports, the glasses have pico projectors that are able to create a virtual experience of up to 80 inches’ display at a perceived distance of about 16 feet. According to Expert Reviews, the headset has a tiny pico projector built into each arm, pointing inwards towards an angled mirror in each lens, which projects the image in the center of the wearer’s vision. The dark outer visor is semi-transparent, letting the wearer see surroundings without being distracted by them. The device carries 1GB of built-in storage. Users access downloaded content via the microSDHC card slot (4GB card included) There is built-in WFi connectivity; a lithium rechargeable battery provides around six hours of continuous use. Built-in earbuds provide Dolby Mobile virtual surround sound. Of all the features, much appears to be made of the Android name in Epson product descriptions, as “Android-powered Moverio glasses.” The glasses connect to a control module; this Android 2.2-based handheld device lets the user select the content to view. Moverio is running on an Android 2.2 platform with Adobe Flash support. Epson publishes the kernel and an SDK, but the company is requiring developers to submit apps to them for consideration rather than going through an app store. The good news is that Epson is interested in seeing more new Android-based applications and side-by-side 3D content for its Moverio BT-100. To help support application and content development for Moverio BT-100, Epson is offering programs for developers residing in the United States.Meanwhile, Epson’s end-user vision is to see the product adopted not merely for personal entertainment use but also for business and professional ends. Epson America’s Anna Jen, director of New Business Development, said the Moverio BT-100 may play a role in virtual training platforms, 3D-CAD environments, and visualizing 3-D design renderings.
