Security caught oncam roughly detaining Indigenous woman at journalism conference

first_imgAPTN NewsVideo captured by reporters at a journalism conference in Winnipeg appears to show a security guard at a hotel where the event is taking place roughing up a young Indigenous woman he suspected of “prowling” cars according to hotel management.The incident at the Radisson Hotel located downtown took place Friday evening.The conference was wrapping up for the day and several journalists were congregating in the lobby when a security guard bee-lined for an Indigenous woman who appeared to be cutting through the lobby.“He stormed up to her and said ‘you’re under arrest’ and grabbed her arm,” said Beverly Andrews, a producer at APTN News. “That’s when he slammed her up against the wall.”“He was hauling her roughly over to a room and she fell down, her glasses fell off and broke and a ring flew off her finger,” said Trina Roache, a video journalist with APTN Investigates.Among the journalists watching the incident were eight APTN reporters, several of whom grabbed their phones and started recording as the security guard took the woman to a small locked room.You can hear on the video some people saying that he doesn’t have the power to arrest her and shouldn’t be detaining her alone in the room, while the female in his grip says “I didn’t f—ing touch no vehicles.”“My concern is he was so aggressive with her right in front of us, I was worried about her being in there with him alone,” said Roache. She can be heard saying “I don’t think this is cool” as another APTN journalist says “I don’t think this is legal” before the security guard shuts the door on them, with the woman inside. The province’s Petty Trespasses Act permits arrest without warrant by a person authorized by property owner if the arrested person was previously given notice to not come onto the owner’s property.It’s not clear if the woman received that warning.Some of the journalists went to look for management while APTN’s Nunavut video journalist Kent Driscoll went outside.He said five minutes after the  incident, the woman who had been detained emerged from the hotel.“I asked if she was OK and she said she was fine,” Driscoll said, and the woman carried on her way. The security guard came out soon after yelling to reporters that the woman was “back in the parkade.”The same security guard was working again Saturday and when questioned about the incident for this story, said “I’m not talking” and walked away.A front desk attendant said a manager “is not available” for questions.An email asking about the hotel’s security protocols was sent to Canad Inns, which owns the Radisson was returned late Monday afternoon.“Canad Inns is taking this matter seriously and is in the process of conducting its internal review,” said Lauren Beckwith, communications coordinator for Canad Inns corporate office.“As the review is ongoing and facts are still being confirmed, I’m unable to comment at this time.The Canadian Association of Journalists said the incident was “highly concerning.”“We are told the hotel management is investigating the incident,” said CAJ president Karyn Pugliese, who is also the executive director of news at APTN.“We have requested the security guard be kept away from our conference in the interest of ensuring our delegates feel safe.”She said the CAJ will follow up with management.There were 250 delegates from media across Canada in for the weekend conference.The Winnipeg Police Service said did not receive a call to the hotel Friday evening.The security guard in the video has by identified as a band member by the Lake Manitoba First Nation in Treaty 2 territory.news@aptn.calast_img read more

Conservative candidate walks back alarm on 50K carbon tax for her church

first_img“This is still a sizable sum for a not-for-profit that is already dealing with the burden of increased costs, and I do not think the impact should be downplayed,” she wrote.Steve Pahl, lead pastor with Hillcrest Evangelical Missionary Church in Medicine Hat, said the comments came out after a Sunday service.“We spoke to our congregation about increases to our overall church operating costs,” Pahl said in a statement.“We stated that in recent years there has been an increase to our overall operating costs of about $50,000 per year. The carbon tax was used as one example of the kind of increases we have incurred.“Someone misunderstood that to mean the carbon tax was responsible for the entire $50,0000 increase and tweeted about it.“For us the carbon tax is not a political issue. We are more than happy to pay our bills, whatever they are and need to be. Many people in our congregation are concerned about environmental issues.” Glasgo stirred up controversy on Twitter Sunday after she mistakenly reported the $50,000 number.Her post was met with a series of mocking online responses comparing her to the duplicitous Pinocchio and demanding she name the church and provide proof of the tax bill.UCP Leader Jason Kenney initially defended her post, noting that it’s one of many such financial hardship stories he is hearing.In the first of two followup Facebook posts Monday morning, Glasgo doubled down on her initial Tweet, saying that the church is very large, with adjoining facilities that extend beyond the main area of worship. EDMONTON, A.B. – A candidate for Alberta’s United Conservatives who stirred up controversy by announcing her church is facing a $50,000 carbon tax bill this year now says the actual number is about one-tenth of that.“I reported the initial figure in good faith and did not intend to mislead,” Michaela Glasgo said in a Facebook post Monday.But Glasgo, the UCP candidate for Brooks-Medicine Hat, said the carbon levy is still too high _ even at the revised figure of $5,400.center_img “People can mock if they like,” she wrote.Three hours after that post, however, Glasgo sent out a second Facebook post detailing her discussion with the church and the church’s estimated carbon tax bill of $5,443.The carbon tax was introduced in 2017 by Premier Rachel Notley’s government. It taxes gasoline to drive as well as natural gas to heat homes and businesses. Rebates are available for low and middle-income earners.Kenney has signalled it will be the centrepiece issue of their campaign in the upcoming spring election.Kenney says Notley never campaigned on introducing the tax when she won government in 2015. He adds that the tax only hurts workers and families while failing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and is symbolic of an interventionist, misguided NDP.He has promised the first task of a new UCP government would be to repeal the carbon tax.Environment ministry spokesman Matt Dykstra, in a statement, said the Glasgo contretemps speaks to a larger concern with the UCP.“All candidates for public office and their leaders have a responsibility to check the facts and think critically before sharing information on social media,” said Dykstra.“Time and time again Jason Kenney and the UCP have shown a blatant disregard for the truth in pursuit of pushing misinformation to stir anger.“It’s a divisive, Trump-esque political strategy unbecoming of someone who is seeking to hold the highest public office in our province.”Christine Myatt, spokesperson for the UCP, said the NDP should not cast stones.“I would point out that the NDP wilfully shares misinformation about the UCP on a regular basis,” said Myatt in a statement.“Ms. Glasgo made an honest error and had no intention of misleading the public.”last_img read more

SecretaryGeneral urges immediate release of captured aid workers in Somalia

5 November 2008Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has strongly condemned today’s abduction of four aid workers and two pilots from an airstrip in the central Somali town of Dusamareb and demanded that they be released immediately. Mr. Ban is “deeply concerned about the worsening trend of killings and abductions of aid workers in Somalia,” according to a statement issued by his spokesperson.“He calls upon all parties to respect the neutral and impartial status of humanitarian staff, and to allow them to do their work bringing vital life-saving assistance to millions of Somalis, nearly half of the population, who are counting on this support for their survival.”Media reports say the six people captured today have been working for Action Against Hunger, a French non-governmental organization (NGO).Last Wednesday two UN staff – both Somali nationals – working in the northern town of Hargeisa were killed after a suicide bombing at the local UN Development Programme (UNDP) compound. Six other staff were seriously injured in the explosion, part of a coordinated wave of attacks across the north that day.Earlier last month two Somali staff members working for UN aid agencies – one for the World Food Programme (WFP) and the other for the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) – were shot dead in separate killings.It is not just aid workers who are being targeted. An independent UN expert warned today that the killing of human rights defenders continues apace across the strife-torn Horn of Africa country.On Monday, Mariam “Dabayarey” Aden Mohamed, chairwoman of the Bay region women’s organization, was murdered in Baidoa, while late last month Duniya Sheikh Doon, chairwoman of her local Somali women’s organization, was killed in Guriel.Shamsul Bari, the Independent Expert on the situation of human rights in Somalia, issued a statement voicing his deep sadness at those killings and also the execution of Aisha Duhulow, a 13-year-old girl who was stoned to death last week after being charged with adultery, even though she had been raped.“Extra-judicial killing, summary and arbitrary execution constitute a cruel and unacceptable atrocity and a violation to the right to life that the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) and the international community should address sooner than later,” Dr. Bari said. read more

Assembly President addresses UN global governance during visit to France

19 November 2010Issues related to global governance, the Group of 20 (G20) leading economies and Security Council reform were among those discussed by General Assembly President Joseph Deiss during his official visit to France. While in Paris, Mr. Deiss met yesterday with French Minister of Foreign and European Affairs Michele Alliot-Marie, with whom he also discussed the country’s contribution to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the set of anti-poverty targets world leaders have pledged to achieve by 2015. He also met separately with the Director General of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), Irina Bokova, and the Secretary-General of the International Organisation of the Francophonie (OIF), Abdou Diouf, to discuss global governance, the MDGs and cultural diversity, among other things. The Assembly President also addressed the Council of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), highlighting the UN’s efforts in reaffirming a central role in global governance. In a speech made in October, Mr. Deiss had warned of the “danger” that the UN could be “marginalized as other actors emerge on the international scene.” He had also described the UN’s central role in global governance as being vital for solving challenges that cannot be overcome by countries acting alone.Mr. Deiss reprised this theme in a bilateral meeting with OECD chief Angel Gurria. read more

China tells Sri Lankan seminar violent extremism has gone rampant

China told delegates attending a seminar in Sri Lanka, violent extremism has gone rampant, seriously endangering human-being and social order, the Sri Lankan Defence Ministry said on Tuesday, according to the Asia Pacific Daily.Senior Colonel Guo Xinning, Deputy Commandant at the College of Defence Studies, National Defence University of the People’s Liberation Army in China, said that enhanced international cooperation against violent extremism is the appeal of the times and an important way to maintain international peace, security and stability. Colonel Guo Xinning said that extremism is neither a phenomenon that is peculiar to a certain religion or a certain country, nor one that only occurs to contemporary world.“Violent extremism is closely associated with terrorism. Some international observers believe that violent extremism certainly runs into the realm of terrorism while extremism does not,” he said. “Since entering 21st century, international terrorism and violent extremism have gone rampant, seriously endangering human-being and social order, posing threats to international peace and stability, and thus becoming a common enemy of the international society. Enhanced international cooperation against violent extremism is the appeal of the times and an important way to maintain international peace, security and stability,” he said. He says while the international community has made relentless efforts in containing the spread of violent extremism new phenomenon and new developments constantly appear.He further appealed to all, if serious, to avoid double standards and seductiveness in tackling violence and hold dialogue and communication to build trust and confidence among nations. (Colombo Gazette) Speaking at the Colombo Defence Seminar, Colonel Guo Xinning said that violent extremism is an affront to the purpose and principles of the UN which in turn undermines peace, security, human rights and sustainable development. read more

Bengals season unravels more with 2410 loss to Broncos

CINCINNATI — A.J. Green took a couple of steps, tried to cut and crumbled to the ground, grabbing his right foot. He was carted off the field, along with the Bengals’ hopes of a late-season recovery.They keep unraveling a little more each week.Rookie Phillip Lindsay rushed for a career-high 157 yards and a pair of touchdowns Sunday as Denver adapted to a windy afternoon and got its third straight victory, 24-10 over the Bengals.After a 4-1 start, Cincinnati (5-7) has dropped six of seven with a historically bad defence and a series of injuries that depleted the roster. Not even a change in defensive co-ordinator has made much of a dent.“I just want to see us challenge ourselves to turn it around before the end of the season,” cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick said. “That’s the only thing I can say right now.”The Bengals are imploding in coach Marvin Lewis’ 16th season. He fired defensive co-ordinator Teryl Austin and assumed the job of running the defence, but they’re 0-3 under that arrangement.The Broncos (6-6) rushed for 218 yards , the third time in the past four games that Cincinnati has given up 200 yards on the ground. The Bengals have allowed four teams to run for 200 yards this season, and Kansas City had 198 yards on the ground.“I’m disappointed with our football game today like that,” Lewis said.With the Bengals on course for a third straight season missing out on the playoffs, fans are giving up. The crowd of 44,392 on Sunday was the smallest at Paul Brown Stadium since 2011.Fans in the upper deck tape a large banner to the front of a seating section before each game. On Sunday, they taped up a blank banner — nothing left to say about this season.Quarterback Andy Dalton tore a ligament in the thumb on his passing hand a week earlier, ending his season. Jeff Driskel made his first NFL start on Sunday and had Green back after he missed three games with an injured toe on his right foot.Green had only one catch before reinjuring the foot, most likely ending his season.“He was obviously battling just to play,” Bengals receiver Alex Erickson said. “I’m sure it’s devastating to him and to the team.”Driskel finished 25 of 38 for 236 yards with a touchdown, an interception , a fumble and four sacks.“Not good enough,” Driskel summed up.The line also was in flux and struggled to adapt.Left tackle Cordy Glenn missed a second straight game with a bad back. Guard Clint Boling started at left tackle, and Trey Hopkins started at guard. The line got three penalties for holding, two for false starts and one for an illegal block.Cincinnati was penalized eight times in the first half, its most in an opening half since 2009. The Bengals finished with 12 penalties for 100 yards.“There are no excuses,” right tackle Bobby Hart said. “No matter who’s in there or what’s going on, it’s your job to get things done.”___More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/tag/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFLJoe Kay, The Associated Press read more

Nuns who ran Tuam home have no comment to make on todays

first_img Mar 3rd 2017, 2:49 PM 59,500 Views THE RELIGIOUS ORDER that ran the Tuam mother and baby home where human remains have been found said it can make no comment on today’s announcement.It did, however, reiterate its support for the Commission of Investigation into the home.The Bon Secours sisters ran the home until it closed in 1961. All of the records for the home were given to Galway County Council at that time.Today, it was confirmed that a “significant” amount of human remains were found on a site connected to the mother and baby home. The area had been flagged as a possible mass burial site by researcher Catherine Corless.When asked for a statement on the issue, the nuns said: If you’d like me to point you at a few reputable historians who might be good, I’ll certainly do that. If you come here, you’ll find no mass grave, no evidence that children were ever so buried, and a local police force casting their eyes to heaven and saying “Yeah, a few bones were found – but this was an area where Famine victims were buried. So?” Image: RollingNews.ie Share325 Tweet Email7 Terry Prone (Ms)ChairmanThe Communications ClinicSpeaking to TheJournal.ie at the time, Prone confirmed she had sent the email, but said there was “absolutely no difference” between the substance of it, and public pronouncements made by the Bon Secours sisters.“The sisters never knew anything about it,” she added at the time.Speaking today, Prone told Today with Sean O’Rourke on RTÉ about the site: ”It looks like there is a whole lot more to it”.Prone said when she wrote to the producer she said ‘you won’t find that’, as a commission was needed to get the work done on the site to determine what happened.She added that “nobody expected the kind of numbers that are being revealed today, clearly there was extensive burial. I am fascinated by the commission’s use of the phrase ‘in this way’ because it sounds like it was a disrespectful mass burial rather than a proper burial… I don’t know what to make of that”She said questions that need to be asked are how many children were buried; and is that disproportionate to the number of children and toddlers who would have been dying in the population at this time; and what did they die of.Documents show that the death rate of babies at the home was significantly higher than that at other homes around the country. Figures from the National Archives showed that 31.6% of babies under the age of one at Tuam died over the course of one year.In other homes, that rate was 17%.Causes of death included bronchitis, convulsions, and congenital syphilis.

On the closing of the Home in 1961 all the records for the Home were returned to Galway County Council who are the owners and occupiers of the lands of the Home. We can therefore make no comment on today’s announcement, other than to confirm our continued cooperation with and support for the work of the Commission in seeking the truth about the home.A Commission of Investigation was established by the Government to look into mother and baby homes and county homes.Email rowIn October 2014, an email was sent by the public relations representative for the Bon Secours sisters, Terry Prone, about the site.Documentary maker Saskia Weber had asked the nuns to take part in filming about mother and baby homes in Ireland.The high-profile PR representative said in response:Your letter was sent on to me by the Provincial of the Irish Bon Secours congregation with instructions that I should help you. I’m not sure how I can. Let me explain.When the “O My God – mass grave in West of Ireland” broke in an English-owned paper (the Mail) it surprised the hell out of everybody, not least the Sisters of Bon Secours in Ireland, none of whom had ever worked in Tuam and most of whom had never heard of it. Which most of us knew already.The overwhelming majority of the surviving Sisters of Bon Secours in Ireland are over eighty. The handful (literally) still in active ministry are in their seventies. None of them is an historian or sociologist or theologian and so wouldn’t have the competence to be good on your programme.

2014 State of Food Insecurity in the World Report Released

first_imgThis past week, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), and World Food Programme (WFP) launched the 2014 edition of the “State of Food Insecurity in the World” (SOFI) report. The good news: the number of people in the world that are chronically malnourished has fallen by over 100 million people in the last 10 years, with 63 countries reaching the hunger target set by the first U.N. Millennium Development Goal (MDG). Those numbers are something to celebrate!But, as outlined in the summary report (found HERE), it is important to remember that there are still 805 million chronically undernourished people in the world. Latin America and the Caribbean have made the most progress so far to increase food security, thanks in part to the increased political commitment of the governments there. However, Africa and Asia still have not seen the necessary growth toward food security—with conflict and natural disasters to thank for its slower progression.With that said, the world is still on track to achieve the hunger target of the first MDG of halving the number of malnourished people in developing countries by 2015. We could see a food secure world in our lifetime if this momentum continues, and the World Soy Foundation is proud to work toward that goal—developing programs and activities in those developing countries that are known to be critically impoverished and malnourished.What would a food secure world look like? Let’s find out! Join us in being a part of the solution to hunger and malnutrition and give the gift of protein. Visit www.worldsoyfoundation.org to learn more and give today.You can also hear the webcast of the press conference presenting the report by clicking here.last_img read more

Coinbase Goes Global Launches Bitcoin Services in 13 European Countries

first_imgSeptember 11, 2014 3 min read That’s one big, ambitious step for Coinbase, and for the burgeoning cross-border Bitcoin ecosystem. The scrappy San Francisco cryptocurrency startup is breaking into the European market, beta launching yesterday in 13 countries across the pond.  Coinbase — which already serves some 1.6 million wallet users across the globe and provides Bitcoin payment processing services to some 36,000 merchants and retailers — has officially opened up for business in the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Finland, France, Greece, Italy, Latvia, Malta, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain and the Netherlands.The San Francisco-based online startup, which went live only two years ago, announced the news Wednesday on its blog.Related: Finally: Bitcoin Is Coming to Merchants Who Use PayPal’s Braintree The expansion means consumers and businesses within the above-listed countries will now be able to buy and sell Bitcoin via Coinbase using a euro bank account. Coinbase says it expects the move will drive more merchant adoption across Europe and bolster its profile as a tool for cross-border payments.However, there is a caveat. Underscoring that this is only a beta launch, Coinbase was careful to point out in its announcement that all of its European customers will have “a fairly low daily limit: 500 euros per day on buys and sells.” Coinbase said it “hopes” to increase the daily limit “in the near future,” as it transitions out of beta mode.In light of the news, Overstock.com said it will begin accepting Bitcoin payments from its international customers, becoming the first large-scale retailer to do so. The Salt Lake City-based ecommerce giant already made Bitcoin history when it became the first major online retailer to accept the cryptocurrency back in January through a partnership with Coinbase.Related: More Major Retailers Are Getting Ready to Accept BitcoinOverstock.com CEO Patrick Byrne, an early and outspoken Bitcoin booster, broke the news earlier today. “Bitcoin has been readily adopted in countries outside the United States, yet the opportunities to spend Bitcoin internationally are extremely limited,” he said in a press release. “We’re pleased to offer this service to the millions of Bitcoin users in other countries and believe they will respond enthusiastically.”Several other high-profile companies accepting Bitcoin payments via Coinbase include Expedia, Intuit, Dell, Square and Google.Related: How to Design a Knockout Bitcoin Mobile App Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.center_img Register Now » Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Globallast_img read more

The furry green Philly Phanatic had guest starred and Flyers gear is much a part of the fabric of the show as Bev Goldberg dropping a “schmoopie” reference. So it seemed fitting the Eagles would eventually get co-billing, and they do, on Wednesday night’s “Hail Barry ” episode.About the only thing Goldberg couldn’t script was a perfect ending: He watched the Super Bowl at a party in Los Angeles and had to skip a hopeful trip to the Eagles’ championship parade in Philadelphia because of a time crunch to write this season’s final episodes.One cool part of being the boss of your own show is getting the chance to invite your idols to the set. His Jenkintown, Pennsylvania, family was part of a group that shared Flyers season tickets from 1985 to 1994 and older brother Barry was a die-hard Eagles fan. The 41-year-old Goldberg said his older brother arranged his wedding around an Eagles game, and is still a season-ticket holder even though he lives in New York. “The Goldbergs” featured an episode on Eagles’ gameday superstitions but Goldberg went straight to the source for this week’s homage — 1980s star wide receiver Mike Quick.Quick, a five-time Pro Bowl pick in the 1980s, was Barry Goldberg’s favourite player and plays an assistant high school coach in “Hail Barry.” Eagles president Don Smolenski, vice-president of football operations Howie Roseman and radio announcer Merrill Reese all make cameos. The Eagles executives made an appearance on the set when the team spent a week in Los Angeles in December between road games at Seattle and Los Angeles.Goldberg also taps into the NFL pop culture of the day with a shoutout to the Eagles 1988 rap video , “Buddy’s Watchin’ You .”Quick, a colour commentator for the team radio broadcast, was a natural on set.“He crushes every joke to the point where the writers are like, can he come back as a cast member.
