Kejriwal’s apology to SAD leader shows his ‘mental weakness’, says senior AAP leader Sukhpal Singh Khaira

first_imgKejriwal apologises to Majithia over drugs charge  “We feel Mr. Kejriwal should not have apologised. Party volunteers across the State are feeling disappointed,” he said.“Nothing matters for us more than Punjab. And in today’s meeting, we will take a decision, keeping in view the sentiments of volunteers and people of Punjab,” he said.The party is also to take a call on whether to accept the resignation of AAP State president Bhagwant Mann or not.Earlier on Friday, Mr. Mann said on Twitter that he was resigning from his post and that he would fight against the drug mafia and all kind of corruption in Punjab as an “Aam Aadmi”.Following Mr. Mann’s resignation, co-president Aman too submitted his resignation.“Due to painful turn of events yesterday, please accept my resignation from the post of Co-President,” he said in a tweet to Manish Sisodia, who is in charge of party affairs in Punjab. Aam Aadmi Party senior leader Sukhpal Singh Khaira on Friday said that AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal had shown mental weakness and surrendered by apologising to Shiromani Akali Dal leader Bikram Singh Majithia in a drugs trade case. This was not acceptable to the party MLAs in Punjab, Mr. Khaira told journalists in Chandigarh.Also Readlast_img read more

New Dolphin Discovered in Brazil

first_imgIn the Amazon Basin in central Brazil, local legends claim that it is bad luck to kill a river dolphin—just looking one in the eye may cause a lifetime of bad dreams. But there’s another reason to protect these large freshwater creatures: A new study finds that instead of two species in the basin, there are actually three. And each is rarer than anyone realized.Amazon river dolphins, which can be pink or gray and have a longer beak than marine dolphins, are under pressure. Despite the taboo against killing them, in some areas fishermen cut them up for bait to catch bottom-feeding catfish. Hydroelectric dams fragment their habitat, and overfishing depletes their food supply. Population data on the animals is incomplete, so their true conservation status is unknown, but their numbers are far smaller than many common marine species of dolphins, whose populations are composed of hundreds of thousands of individuals. As scientists collect more genetic data, they are beginning to realize that there is not one river dolphin, but multiple species living in isolated basins in the Amazon.Researchers officially announced the discovery of a third river dolphin in a study published online today in PLOS ONE. The new species is named Inia araguaiaensis, after the Araguaia River Basin that it calls home. Scientists knew that river dolphins inhabited the region. But they suspected that the group might be its own distinct species because it is isolated from other groups of river dolphins in the Amazon River system by a series of rapids.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)Researchers compared sections of nuclear and mitochondrial DNA from the three species to show that they each have evolved separately and are not interbreeding. They also compared two male and two female I. araguaiaensis skulls with skull measurements from the other species and found small differences in the number and shape of certain teeth, and a slightly wider skull. They examined so few specimens because finding dead animals is difficult. “These are occasional finds, so you cannot do a proper sampling design,” says lead researcher Tomas Hrbek, an evolutionary biologist at the Federal University of Amazonas in Manaus, Brazil.Hrbek and his team estimate that I. araguaiaensis has been isolated from the species in the main Amazon River Basin, called I. geoffrensis, for more than 2 million years. The two likely split when the mouth of the Araguaia River shifted to the east to empty into the Atlantic Ocean instead of the Amazon River. The habitat ranges of the two species potentially overlap in a small area downstream of the rapids where a narrow canal connects the mouth of the Araguaia River with the Amazon River delta. The researchers plan to conduct surveys of the area to see if both species live there without interbreeding. “That would be conclusive evidence of biological species-level differences—a natural test,” says Scott Baker, a conservation geneticist at Oregon State University, Corvallis, who was not involved in the research.Eric Archer, a cetacean geneticist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Southwest Fisheries Science Center in San Diego, California, expects that the newly described species will be accepted by the research community. “The genetic lines of evidence are very strong,” says Archer, who was not associated with the study. He would like to see physical measurements of more animals, however, to catch the full range of variation. The species may even make different types of whistles to communicate, he says.The discovery could have important conservation implications for the new species, Hrbek says. “Based on census data there are probably only a thousand individuals, which is a very small population size,” he says. “We looked at genetic diversity and it’s quite low compared to the other species,” he says. “It’s not a very rosy picture.”Based on these findings, the researchers argue that I. araguaiaensis should be considered vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, an organization that assesses whether plants and animals are endangered. “By recognizing that these are each three unique diverging lineages, the loss of any one of them is not replaceable,” Baker says.last_img read more

F1: Max Verstappen gives Daniel Ricciardo less to smile about

first_imgMax Verstappen’s stunning victory on his Red Bull debut has given team-mate Daniel Ricciardo a taste of his own medicine, according to 1997 world champion Jacques Villeneuve.The 18-year-old Verstappen became Formula One’s youngest race winner at Sunday’s Spanish Grand Prix, with Australian Ricciardo finishing fourth after a strategy error by the team was compounded by a late puncture.Ricciardo, winner of three races in 2014 when, like Verstappen, he moved up from Toro Rosso to the main Red Bull team, had led after Mercedes pair Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton collided on the opening lap.”The critical point now is what will happen with Ricciardo,” Villeneuve, who took pole and almost won on his race debut with Williams in 1996 as a fresh young team mate to Britain’s Damon Hill, told reporters.”Right now it’s the reverse situation of when he arrived (at Red Bull) and (Sebastian) Vettel was the driver, except Vettel had four world championships and he doesn’t.”His smile will not carry him now,” added the Canadian.RICCIARDO UPSETRed Bull put Ricciardo, who had led for 31 laps, on a three-stop strategy at the Circuit de Catalunya while keeping Verstappen on what turned out to be a winning two.The Australian, famed for having the biggest smile in the sport, said after the race he felt victory had been snatched away from him.”It’s not hard to see Max on the podium but it’s hard for me not to be on the podium, that’s the biggest disappointment,” he said.advertisement”It didn’t make sense,” he added of the decision to switch to a three-stop strategy after Ferrari had done so with Vettel. “It’s frustrating, I think we just threw the win away.”Sure I’m bitter right now. Not with Max, not at all, just bitter at the situation.”Red Bull principal Christian Horner, who saw “uncanny” similarities between Verstappen and a young Vettel, said the Dutch youngster would only grow in confidence but also offered words of support to Ricciardo.”At that point in the race it was far from obvious which was the quicker route to go and we felt Vettel, as the biggest opponent, we would take him on with Ricciardo,” he said of the strategy.”I said it before the weekend and I really believe we’ve got the strongest pairing of drivers in Formula One now,” added Horner. “We’re in a position where things are on the up.”last_img read more

Combating Kohli and Gayle is like going into the battlefield, feels Lakshmipathy Balaji

first_imgCombating the fearsome batting duo of Virat Kohli and Chris Gayle is no less than going into the ‘battlefield’, Kolkata Knight Riders bowling coach Lakshmipathy Balaji said. (Virat Kohli has got class, Chris Gayle is a T20 master: Kane Williamson to India Today)WATCH: Nitish Rana, Manish Pandey dominate frenetic week 3 of IPL 2017″It’s hard to plan. It’s like Army men going into the battlefield. You may have a lot of planning but on the day you just try to disorient a little bit. But the important thing is what comes to us and what we can control,” he said about the challenge that lies ahead when KKR clash with Royal Challengers Bangalore. (Bangalore’s AB de Villiers, Tymal Mills to return for Kolkata clash)The last year’s runners-up posted a season-high 213 for 2 en route to a 21-run win over Gujarat Lions in their previous match, which saw Gayle and Kohli joining hands at the top for a partnership of 122.”In T20, it’s all about what you do on that day. The batting decides the outcome in most of the games. We have been playing good cricket. It’s about keep doing the things that has given you good results instead of being intimidated by the opposition,” Balaji said.”We just need to do look after our limitations. We cannot control the opposition. We can control many things that we are doing good, that’s why we are in top three,” he said.KKR suffered an upset defeat against Lions as they failed to defend a challenging total of 187/5 with Suresh Raina’s side sealing a four-wicket win.advertisementBut Balaji backed his bowlers, saying they were doing a fine job.”It’s about wickets, and not by runs. Your game destination is decided on how many wickets you take. Wickets form an important aspect and we have done exceedingly well in that department.”But at the same time we will look to improve in the areas that needed to be addressed.”Balaji chose to delve into the positives of their match against Gujarat Lions.”The good thing is we got five wickets, that’s a positive outcome. The batsmen are aggressive in this format, so you need to show your aggression by taking wickets. There has to be a balance.”When you keep doing that, the outcome takes care on its own. The wickets decide the outcome most of the times rather than containing runs.”The spectators would be divided on Sunday with the cricketing heartthrobs Kohli and Gayle in the opposition.”Definitely, they are very good cricketers and ambassadors of the game. There will definitely be a lot of cheers. That’s good for us. We have got our own support. We have been doing well here. It will be an exciting match.”last_img read more

Google Pixel 3a XL vs Samsung Galaxy S10e: Two worthy opponents

first_imgPremium smartphones that are relatively affordable are in vogue this year. Apple made the iPhone XR, which is its “affordable” premium phone, a bit more palatable by slashing its price to Rs 59,900. Google launched brand new smartphone series – the Google Pixel 3a series – starting at Rs 39,999 to entice new customers who may not want to spend Rs 70,000 on a Pixel. And Samsung, well Samsung launched an “affordable” premium smartphone called the Galaxy S10e along with the Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy S10 Plus. For those who aren’t sure about its price, the Samsung Galaxy S10e is available at a price of Rs 50,900 on Amazon and on Flipkart.Earlier this week, we compared the Google Pixel 3a XL with the Apple iPhone XR. While there was a huge difference in the prices of the two phones — the Pixel 3a with starting price of Rs 39,999 is at the lower-end of the premium spectrum while the XR is the higher end — we compared because these two phones are the cheapest way to get the best of Google and Apple. A comparison between the Google Pixel 3a XL and the Samsung Galaxy S10e, however, is more reasonable price wise. So let’s get down to it.Design and displayThe Google Pixel 3a XL comes with 6-inch full HD+ OLED display with a resolution of 2160×1060 pixels. It has single camera in the front, which is neatly tucked inside the large bezels of the phone alongside the earpiece. At the back there is a fingerprint sensor, placed in top quadrant of the phone diagonal to its rear camera. As far as the overall look and feel of the Pixel 3a XL is concerned, it looks almost identical to the Pixel 3 XL smartphone. However, there are two crucial details that separate from this smartphone from the more expensive Pixel. One is the presence of a glass in the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones and the other is the presence of a 3.5mm jack in the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL smartphones.advertisementThe Samsung Galaxy S10e, on the other hand, comes with a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with a screen resolution of 2280×10280 pixels. It has a notch-less design with a single punch hole camera in the front. On the right side there is a long-ish power button, which also houses the fingerprint sensor. At back, there is a horizontally stacked dual rear camera setup with a flash, which is placed directly above the Samsung logo. The back of the Galaxy S10e is made with 3D curved glass and it supports reverse wireless charging just like its pricier siblings. The Galaxy S10e is definitely jazzier than the Pixel 3a XL. It is compact and hence easier to operate with one hand. It doesn’t feature ugly bezels on top and bottom and the fingerprint sensor on the side simply adds a stroke of genius to the overall design. And yes, it does have a 3.5mm jack.As far as the display is concerned, on Pixel3a XL the colours are a bit warmer and a bit dull. Galaxy S10e, on the other hand, shows brighter and livelier shades on its screen. Pink look shinier, and yellow doesn’t seem boring at all on the Galaxy S10e screen. The difference is subtle, yet it is there.Performance and softwareGoogle’s pocket-friendly Pixel smartphone — Pixel 3a XL — sports 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory and it has Qualcomm Snapdrgaon 670 in its core. As far as the software is concerned, it is powered by unadulterated version of Google’s Android 9.0 mobile operating system and it comes loaded with Pixel-y features such as the Active Edge, Digital Wellbeing and Now Playing.Samsung’s budget phone – Galaxy S10e – on the other hand, gets 6GB RAM with 128GB expandable storage capacity. Alternatively, there is a 8GB RAM plus 256GB memory variant as well, but that costs a bit more. The S10e runs on the same Exynos 9820 chipset that powers its pricier siblings – Galaxy S10 and S10+. This makes it more powerful in comparison to the Pixel 3a XL smartphone, which unlike Pixel 3 that comes with Snapdragon 845 chipset, comes with an older processor. In terms of the software, Galaxy S10e runs on Android 9.0 Pie with Samsung’s One UI interface. I haven’t got to spend enough time – not as much as I have with Pixel 3a XL – with the Galaxy S10e. But in my limited time with the device, I found it to be a smooth sail. The credit for this, I believe goes to Samsung’s One UI. It makes Android Pie, which in case of Pixel 3a XL I found to be a bit rough, working smoothly. Overall, I believe Galaxy S10e has an edge over the Pixel 3 XL in this department.advertisementCameraGoogle’s Pixel 3 smartphones are the best camera phones available in the market right. The company’s machine learning software allows Google to achieve with single lens what others do with two or three cameras. The company has brought the same technology that powers the Pixel 3 cameras to its Pixel 3a smartphones. The Pixel 3a XL features a 12.2MP rear camera with dual pixel technology and OIS and EIS. On the front, the phone sports an 8MP camera.The Samsung Galaxy S10e, on the other hand, comes with dual rear camera setup with a 12MP wide-angle lens and a 16MP ultra-wide-angle lens and OIS. On the front, the phone sports a 10MP selfie camera with live focus feature.But the performance matters not the hardware, there are differences in the kind of photos the Pixel 3a XL and the Galaxy S10e click. While Pixel 3a XL produces images with warmer shades, Galaxy S10e produces that look brighter than those produced by Pixel. In simple words, red in the India Today logo looks brighter and peppier and the sky looks a lot lighter in case of the Galaxy S10e. Both the phones, however, maintain depth and clarity to the tee. The same can be said about the portrait shots as well. Pixel images are close to what you see in real life. Clear, detailed, balanced and perhaps a bit warmer. Galaxy S10e images, on the other hand, look a whole lot brighter, almost as if they have been colour corrected. Both the phones, however, preserve details and shadows well. Selfies, however, are a different ballgame altogether. The Galaxy S10e, even without the beauty mode, whitens and brightens everything up. It’s a good feature for those who want their smartphones to capture flawless selfies. The Pixel, on the other hand, is your mirror. It will show you your freckles and tired eyes just as a mirror would. And now the million-dollar question, which phone has the better night mode. Well, the answer is the Pixel 3a XL. The Pixel 3a XL’s Night Sight is way better than Galaxy S10e’s Night Mode. The difference is apparent not just in colours but also in clarity. BatteryBattery is one of the key differentiating factors between the Pixel 3a XL and the Galaxy S10e. While the Samsung Galaxy S10e sports a 3,100mAh battery with support for fast charging 2.0, Pixel 3a XL comes with a bigger 3,700mAh battery with an 18W fast charger.During our review, we found the Galaxy S10e to provide a day long’s battery life on light to moderate usage. Pixel 3a XL, on the other hand, supports you for a time close to two days on light to moderate usage.advertisementIf battery is key, then the Pixel surely gets my vote.Pixel 3a XL or Galaxy S10e: Which one should you buy?The decision to pick one phone between the Google Pixel 3a XL and the Samsung Galaxy S10e isn’t as simple a choice as picking between a smartphone from Google or Samsung. Even though they might have a similar fabric underneath – Android 9 Pie that is – there is a world of difference between the two phones.In the end, it boils downs to this simple bit: what features are you looking for in a phone and what all compromise you are willing to make for it. If a great camera with a long battery life is what you a looking for then Pixel 3a XL is you perfect pick. But if you are leaning more towards performance, then Galaxy S10e is definitely worth considering.ALSO READ: | Samsung Galaxy S10e review: Affordable, compact and the best S10 to buyALSO READ: | Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL review: A Pixel for everyoneALSO READ: | Google Pixel 3a XL vs Apple iPhone XR: It’s a choice between slick iPhone and versatile Google cameralast_img read more

No Chinese visas for Kailash Mansarovar Yatra after Ladakh move

first_imgNEW DELHI: China has not granted visas to a group of Indians planning to undertake the Kailash Mansarovar Yatra on Wednesday, sources said on Tuesday, hours after the country opposed India’s move to make Ladakh a new union territory. Following the government’s decision to revoke Jammu and Kashmir’s special status and split the state into union territories, China on Tuesday asked both India and Pakistan to exercise restraint and voicing “serious concern” over the situation in Kashmir. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c detailsSaying that the two countries should avoid actions that “unilaterally” change the status quo and “exacerbate tensions” between them, China also expressed its opposition to India’s move to create a separate Union Territory of Ladakh. India firmly rejected China’s stand, calling it an “internal matter”. “The Jammu and Kashmir Reorganization Bill 2019, introduced by the Government in Parliament on 5 August, which proposes the formation of a new ‘Union Territory of Ladakh’ is an internal matter concerning the territory of India,” External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said in response to a query on comments made by a Chinese government official. “India does not comment on the internal affairs of other countries and similarly expects other countries to do likewise,” he added.last_img read more

60s Scoop survivors speak out in Québec

first_imgTom FennarioAPTN National News The walls of Nakuset’s home are mostly devoted to her children.Walking down the hallway, she passes drawings and merit awards from elementary school before stopping at an enlarged photo.Shot in 70s washed hues, is a toddler in a pink dress, squinting at the camera as if trying to divine its purpose.“This is part of the 60s scoop,” said Nakuset who is now 46. “This is what they did. They took pictures of Indigenous children and put them into catalogues and then sent them all over the country.”She would know. Nakuset is the three year old girl in the photo.“They would go into the communities and they would take children and say, ‘oh you don’t have any running water?We’re going to take your children. You have an outhouse? We’re going to take your children? You don’t have a fridge?’” she told APTN, anger rising to the surface. “If you’re deemed as poor, they would take your children.”Nakuset pauses to ponder the photo some more.“I’m not sure why they decided to adopt me, because I think I was kind of funny looking, but I guess they saw something cute in me and they said ‘send her over,’” she said. “So the next day I was on a plane from Manitoba to Montreal.”Nakuset Sohkisiwin as a three year old. The photo is from her “adoption catalog,” Nakuset’s records show that her birth mother was abusive, and she said that in many ways it was for the best that she was taken away.But she said she resents that she was separated from her siblings for decades.“My older sister Sonya says she looked after me, but one day she woke up and I was gone.”Nakuset is not the name she was born with, or even the name her adoptive parents gave her.It means “the sun” and in her 20s it was given to Nakuset by a Mi’gmaq elder. She took it on not just as an act of pride, but of protest.“The social workers said to the parents, don’t tell them that they’re Native, don’t tell them where they come from, don’t tell them about their roots, this is the best practice,” she said.Nakuset Sohkisiwin. FacebookNakuset said her parents took that advice to heart.“They told me to tell people that I was Israeli,” she said of her Jewish adoptive parents “They could never understand why I wanted reconnect with my roots.”Nakuset said eventually she broke off all connection with her adoptive parents after finding that they were withholding letters from her biological older sister.She’s been on a quest to rediscover her Cree heritage to this day.“I feel like all these things I’m supposed to know, I don’t know,” said Nakuset as her voice breaks for a moment. “I wasn’t brought up that way, I don’t know how to …,” she says, snapping her fingers for emphasis. “Okay now you’re an Indian. Now you’re gonna go back, you’re gonna go live off the land your gonna know your culture you’re gonna sing the songs, your gonna speak your language, you’re gonna bead, you’re gonna do all of these things (and) I don’t know any of it.”It can be argued that Nakuset has more than made up for it.She’s currently the president of the Montreal Native Women’s shelter and an advocate for Indigenous services and rights as the co-chair for the Montreal Urban Aboriginal Strategy Network.Still, the effects of being a part of the 60s scoop linger.“As much as I have this persona for being successful in work, I find that interpersonal relationships are very difficult for me,” she said.Watching Nina Segalowitz throat sing is to witness a feat of endurance.Be it husky breathing or urgent high notes she pushes her breathing longer than most lungs can bear.But for the longest time, Segalowitz had no one to throat sing with.The part Dene, part Inuit woman didn’t meet another Indigenous person until she visited Montreal’s Native Friendship Centre for the first time at the age of 18.Mother of Nina Segalowitz in an undated photo.“It was the most emotional day,” she said. “I remember her face, and she smiled at me and I just started crying…because for the first time, there was a woman who could possibly be my aunt. I knew that she was Inuit because I recognized her and it was a very healing moment for me and from then on I was just a sponge.”Segalowitz is now the president of the Montreal Native Friendship Centre. She has an excellent relationship with her adoptive family.Her adopted parents even travelled to Fort Smith, NWT to meet with her biological father after Segalowitz found him.“My parents showed him [her birth father] picture books of me when I was growing up, he just cried. He was so thankful for my parents…” said Segalowitz, looking off to the distance before collecting herself and exhaling. “He said ‘thank you for taking care of my little girl.’”Segalowitz said that part of what made the meeting so difficult is that her birth parents had never intended to give her up.“I had an ear infection and so they brought me there [the hospital] to get treated, and the doctors and the nurses that helped me for the admission they made my parents sign papers,” she said. “And because my parents had gone to residential school they didn’t really know what they were signing. So the next day when my parents went back to the hospital to get me, I was gone, and that what they actually had signed was adoption papers.”Segalowitz’s birth mother died before they could meet, but from what Segalowitz heard, she was devastated losing her daughter.“My parents couldn’t get to me. The doctors said that they would never find me, [that] they had no right to me because they were unfit parents,” said Segalowitz. “So for days after that, for weeks and weeks my mom would go to the hospital and try to get me back and they kept refusing her, telling her she would never see me again.”Despite a happy upbringing, Segalowitz laments the day she was taken.“Myself, along with a lot of other Native adoptees, have always felt disconnected. We lost so much, we didn’t grow up with our brothers and sisters we didn’t grow up with our aunties and uncles, we didn’t grow up with our language and that was taken away from us, in the name of modernizing Indians and colonizing us and we lost all of that. I’ve never gone hunting, I’ve never lived on the land because the government decided it would better for me to grow up in a non-Native home,” she said.For Segalowitz, last week’s (link please) 60s Scoop ruling in Ontario court has set more than one precedent.“That’s where the healing starts, it’s good to be acknowledged,” she said. “And it gives us a strong foundation to do our own class-action suit.”But lawyers aren’t so sure.Lawyer David Schulze specializes in Aboriginal law at Montreal’s Dionne Schulze law firm. He opines that going after the provinces is a harder case to make and will make for a more drawn out court battle.“You can expect them [the provinces] to raise limitations issues, which the federal government doesn’t seem to be raising,” he said. “I mean, this happened a long time ago and there are certain kinds of cases where we don’t enforce limitations periods, generally with respect to sexual abuse, but you can expect either the provinces or [adoption] agencies’ lawyers might say, ‘well just because the federal government is not raising limitations issues doesn’t mean that we’re not going to raise it’. ”For her part, Nakuset has been approached by an international law firm to be the potential face of a Québec-based class-action suit against the federal government, but she isn’t sure she has the stomach for lengthy legal skirmishes.Already she found last week’s ruling in Ontario to be emotionally draining.“The moment that the court said ‘yes, you were mistreated’ I was like ‘oh….wow, like validation’,” she said. “But for me it takes me back to every negative thing that you just kind of absorb, it all came back like whoosh, like everything just came forward.”Still, not all the things from her past that have emerged are negative. Last year, Nakuset and her older biological sister Sonya were reunited with their Austrian-raised youngest sister, Rose Mary. They all hope to physically meet for the first time since being scooped this summer.“She writes me almost every day,” Nakuset said. “And I send her a necklace and earrings and I sent her a medicine bag, and A Tribe Called Red album, and just try to like infuse her with Native stuff, because obviously she’s not going to get anything authentic in Austria.”The concept of authenticity is something that Nakuset has struggled with in the past but she said she’s at a place in her life where she now feels comfortable.She looks forward to making up for lost time and discovering even more about her Cree heritage with her sisters…something she’ll do with or without a 60s scoop settlement.tfennario@aptn.ca “My older sister Sonya says she looked after me, but one day she woke up and I was gone”last_img read more

Canada to oppose Alaska oil drilling on caribou habitat Minister

first_imgYukon Environment Minister Pauline Frost said her government will fight any attempt to allow industrial activity in what is one of the most pristine areas left in the U.S.“We do not want to proceed with development. We in Yukon are taking a very strategic and proactive approach to protecting the Porcupine caribou herd,” she said. “We have a treaty obligation that the U.S. has committed to.”The N.W.T. is also preparing a submission to the Alaskans.“Some of the areas we would look for in the (environmental impact study) would be full consideration of potential impacts on the Porcupine caribou herd, polar bears, migratory birds and grizzly bears, allowing adequate time for consultation and respecting obligations established in international agreements and land claim agreements,” said a statement from Environment Minister Robert McLeod. Last Friday, the U.S. opened a 60-day public comment period before environmental hearings on allowing drilling on the calving grounds of the Porcupine caribou herd.The herd is the largest and healthiest in the North and one that is considered crucial to the physical and cultural health of Indigenous people in Canada’s northwest.The animals are protected under a U.S.-Canada treaty, which commits both nations to preserve it. While it calves in Alaska, the 218,000-strong herd spends most of its time in Canada.Caribou is a regular part of the diet of Gwich’In people and remains key to their culture.The governments of Canada, Yukon and Northwest Territories, as well as several First Nation governments, met in Inuvik, N.W.T., last December to discuss fears the refuge would be opened. They all signed an agreement promising to fight to uphold the treaty.“We, the parties, reaffirm our commitment to co-operate to take action to achieve effective conservation and management of the Porcupine caribou population throughout its range, specifically the conservation of important calving areas,” the agreement said. OTTAWA, O.N. — Three levels of Canadian government say they will oppose the latest attempt to open the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling.“Canada supports the continued conservation of the Porcupine caribou herd’s habitat, including in the Arctic refuge, and opposes opening this area to resource development,” said Global Affairs Canada spokesman John Babcock.“The federal, territorial and Indigenous governments in Canada are united in their commitment to conservation of the herd and its habitat.”center_img Babcock pointed out Canada has established two national parks in an effort to protect the herd.Frost, a Gwich’In herself who represents a riding where people depend heavily on caribou, said her people began fighting the latest attempt to open the refuge as early as last fall, when the U.S. Congress was considering the bill that eventually allowed it. Band representatives were in Washington to ensure legislators understood Canadian concerns, she said.Further speaking tours with American lobby groups are likely, Frost said.But it’s not a new fight. The Gwich’In have been lobbying Americans to keep development out of the refuge for 30 years.“It was 20 years ago when I was sent off on a lobbying effort to the United States,” Frost said.“I (spoke) for three weeks straight every day. The young people of the community are as committed today as we were back then. We will continue to advocate and fight for protection.”By Bob WeberTHE CANADIAN PRESSlast_img read more

Tottenham Somehow Topped Liverpools Dramatics

On Tuesday, Liverpool shocked the world by overcoming a 3-0 semifinal deficit to bounce Lionel Messi and Barcelona from the Champions League. It was one of the most remarkable European victories in the history of a club that’s known for remarkable European victories; it seemed inconceivable that any team would top it for some time.Just 24 hours later, Tottenham Hotspur answered the call.The London club pulled off a dramatic comeback — its second Champions League thriller in a month — in the final seconds of Wednesday’s semifinal against Ajax, which means that for just the second time in the competition’s history, two English teams will play in the final match. According to the FiveThirtyEight Soccer Power Index (SPI), none of this was supposed to happen. Before the second legs of the two semifinals, SPI gave Tottenham a 25 percent chance to advance to the final and Liverpool just a 7 percent chance. But both teams pulled off the very, very unlikely, and now Madrid will be overrun on June 1 with overserved British fans chanting the names of their favorite players.To be sure, Tottenham entered its second-leg match in better shape than its Premier League rivals did a day before, if just barely. Spurs lost 1-0 to Ajax in the first leg, and their troubles were compounded by the fact that they conceded a dreaded away goal,1Away goals are used to break ties in two-leg Champions League fixtures. but the deficit was just one goal. A goal and a shutout in Amsterdam would ensure they reached at least extra time, while two goals and a clean sheet would give Tottenham passage to the final. Nothing was out of reach, but the London side still had a lot to do against a plucky group of Dutch youngsters who had become the tournament’s feel-good story.When Ajax’s teenage captain, Matthijs de Ligt, opened the scoring with a header in the fifth minute, whatever hope Spurs clung to started to fade. The Dutch squad began the second leg the same way it began the first, attacking with abandon and causing Tottenham’s older, tired center backs plenty of grief. It wasn’t long before Ajax bagged a second goal courtesy of a left-footed strike from forward Hakim Ziyech that swerved past the outstretched hands of goalkeeper Hugo Lloris. If 1-0 felt doable, 2-0 felt insurmountable — particularly for a Spurs team that looked exhausted.But after halftime, Tottenham seemed magically refreshed. Mauricio Pochettino’s side forced Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana to make a few key stops before getting their breakthrough in the 55th minute on a left-footed strike from forward Lucas Moura. A second came just four minutes later, again on a left-footed effort from Moura.The mood at Johan Cruyff Arena went from ecstasy to agony within a matter of minutes. Could this be happening? Could their beloved Ajax really be on the verge of collapse?Ajax managed to settle the game after Moura’s second mark, but the squad failed to convert a number of excellent scoring chances that would have buried Tottenham. A shot from Ziyech that clanged off the right post and a massive Lloris save in stoppage time kept the Lilywhites in the game, but they were still in need of a minor miracle — or a Lucas Moura hat trick.And as if to say to Liverpool, “Here, hold my drink,” Spurs got their wish as Moura slotted yet another left-footed effort2It’s significant that these strikes came with his left foot because Moura favors his right. into the bottom-right corner of the Ajax goal, this time in the final minute of stoppage time. The goal leveled things on aggregate at 3-3 but gave Tottenham the win on away goals.In the end, the result was a fair one: The Londoners took more total shots, directed more shots on goal, completed more passes in the attacking third, completed more passes in the opposing penalty area and created more big chances than their counterparts from Amsterdam. Over the course of both legs, Tottenham outperformed Ajax in expected goals 4.5 to 2.9, according to ESPN’s Stats & Information Group. The second half of the second leg will be responsible for much of that discrepancy, but it doesn’t matter when the goals come, just that they come at all.We wondered in March if an English team could win the Champions League title. We know now that one will — it’s just a matter of which one. Liverpool has the edge — 71 percent to 29 percent — but after this week, it’s clear that the odds don’t mean much to these two teams.Check out our latest soccer predictions. read more

Jihadi Jacks mother claims she tried to offer him £5000 bribe to

The mother of Jihadi Jack tried to offer him a £5,000 “bribe” to encourage him to leave Syria, a court heard.Sally Lane, 56, told of the “tightrope” she and her husband John Letts, 58, were forced to tread as they tried to keep in contact with Jack Letts while he was in Isis-held Raqqa.Mrs Lane said she thought Letts had travelled to Jordan and Kuwait for study and tourism until he called her on September 2, 2014, and said: “‘Mum, I’m in Syria.”Giving evidence yesterday, she told the Old Bailey: “I was horrified. I screamed at him, ‘How could you be so stupid? You will get killed. You will get beheaded’.”Mrs Lane said the following month she attempted to use a £5,000 inheritance from her son’s grandfather “as a bribe” to encourage him and his new wife Asmaa to get “somewhere safe”. When she saw that Letts had appeared to threaten to behead an old school friend on Facebook, she said she felt “absolutely sick”.”It was so out of character. He had never said anything violent before. I just thought it didn’t sound like him,” she added.Organic tenant farmer John Letts, 58, and former fundraising officer Lane, 56, deny three charges of funding terrorism. The couple are accused of sending or trying to send sums totalling £1,723 to their son, even though they had every reason to believe he had joined Islamic State.

Toronto junior miners continue impressive growth

first_imgAs we enter PDAC week, we find that last year was another very impressive one for Canada’s junior mining industry on the TSX Venture Exchange. According to the second annual PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) report on Canada’s junior mining sector Review of trends in the TSX-V mining industry while the market cap for the entire TSX-V increased a solid 14%, the mining sector surged 45% and the top 100 mining companies saw their market caps rise 37%.The PwC survey examines the top 100 mining companies on the TSX-V based on market capitalisation as at June 30, 2007. Paul Murphy, PwC partner and Canadian Mining Practice leader, noted “The mining sector led the exchange in more than growth – it also had presence. Of the more than 2,000 companies listed on the TSX-V, 47% were mining companies.”C$3 billion was generated through share issues in 2007 as investors saw potential in exploration and development. Total assets for the top 100 rose to C$6.6 billion in 2007 from C$4.1 billion in the previous year. Revenue jumped 81% in 2007 to more than C$471 million. “Part of the increase can be attributed to the rise in the number of producing companies, up four to 17, from the year before,” said Murphy.Commodity prices continued to play a significant role in growth with prices remaining strong. Emerging markets like China and India helped fuel demand for steel, copper and gold while plans for more nuclear reactors added to the demand for uranium.Investor interest in higher-risk junior companies was strong in 2007 and evident in the growing market caps on the TSX-V. Companies in the top 100 with market caps above C$200 million more than doubled to 29 in 2007 from 14 companies in 2006. Those that made the top five had their market caps ranged from C$558 million to C$1.15 billion in 2007, compared with a range of C$475 million to C$1.23 million a year earlier.The top five companies in 2007 by market capitalisation were:Northern Dynasty Minerals (C$1.15 billion)Seabridge Gold (C$764 million)Osisko Exploration (C$714 million)Nautilus Minerals (C$577 million)Palmarejo Silver and Gold Corp (C$558 million)For more information on the PwC report, see www.pwc.com/ca/mininglast_img read more

10GB of personal files found on supposed new laptop bought at computer

first_imgIf you go shopping for a new laptop at a retail store, you’ll most likely get a machine full of crapware that takes a few hours to clear off. Buy one from a computer fair, though, and you could get a hard drive full of personal files.That’s what happened to one Hidayat Sudirman in Singapore who bought a laptop advertised as new. The 14″ Asus laptop was anything but, and when switched on the new owner found over 10GB of files belonging to someone else. These weren’t nondescript files, but personal and confidential information such as tax records and divorce documents.The sale turned out to be a major mistake on the part of the company selling the laptops. Newstead Technologies act as an Asus reseller and sell new laptops at these fairs, but they also take in machines for repair. In this case one of the repair machines had managed to get into the new laptop pile and shipped off for sale.Sudirman took the laptop back and got a full refund along with an apology. The mistake also got the interest of Asus who has taken the time to contact its resellers with more guidance regarding handling of its products.For anyone sending a laptop off for repair it’s a reminder that the data stored on your hard drive is vulnerable and steps need to be taken to protect it. That includes encrypting your hard drive and doing a complete backup regularly in case someone less honest than Sudirman ends up getting hold of it and using the information.On the flip side, if you purchase a machine from a computer fair then ensure the first thing you do is check it for files and possible infections. You never know what state the last person left it in and there’s no guarantee the person selling it bothered to check either.Read more at The China Post, via Thinq (image courtesy of laptopshop.co.uk)last_img read more
