first_imgLast week, the conservation group, along with five others, met with some 40 partners in order to discuss how to maintain corridors in southern Quebec that are essential to the survival of species like lynx, which need about 70 square kilometres each in other to survive.Monticone said the effort will also require more passages between Canada and the United States as animals will have to move to new areas in response to environmental changes.“It’s more and more needed if we’re thinking about climate change,” said Monticone, the conservation science manager for the Nature Conservancy of Canada in Quebec.“Quebec, for example, will be a climate change refuge because animals are going north, about 45 kilometres per decade, so they need ecological corridors to be able to move north and be sure they survive.”She said the absence of passages from one natural area to the next can lead to species being isolated, unable to maintain their biodiversity or move to a new area if their habitat changes.RELATED: Baby boom expected for wildlife: conservation group And while space is essential to predators like lynx and wolves, she said it’s equally important to smaller species such as turtles, and many species of plants.She said securing a natural corridor can mean making agreements with landowners as well as negotiating with urban and regional planners to ensure they integrate natural areas into development plans.But it also means ensuring animals have a way to cross existing highways.She said organizations such as Montreal’s Concordia University and the Quebec’s transport ministry have been studying the effectiveness of measures such as underpasses to allow animals to cross safely and reduce roadkill — which also benefits humans by reducing the number of animal-vehicle collisions.Monticone said there has already been work done recently to strengthen the natural passages to allow passages between eastern Quebec, the Maritimes, and the states of Maine and Vermont. But she said the work is slow going, requiring negotiations with municipal and regional governments as well as hundreds of individual landowners.“Every time we collaborate with an owner, we’re talking about little puzzle pieces that are being added to connectivity, and we need several puzzle pieces to really create the ecological corridors we need,” she said.Morgan Lowrie, The Canadian Press MONTREAL — For several years, conservationists have been stressing that ecological corridors, which allow wildlife to move between natural areas, are essential to preventing habitat fragmentation and ensuring the survival of animals such as lynx and bears.But the need for corridors is becoming more urgent, given a UN report that concludes a million species are threatened with extinction, and the fact that many Canadian provinces could become ‘climate refuges’ for animals heading north to escape rising temperatures, according to Kateri Monticone of the Nature Conservancy of Canada.RELATED: 1 million species at risk of extinction: U.N. reportlast_img read more

The Secretary-General’s Special Representative for human rights in Cambodia, Yash Ghai, and the Special Rapporteur on the Independence of Judges and Lawyers, Leandro Despouy, issued a joint statement that the appointments cast doubt on whether “judicial independence is being fully respected in Cambodia.”They called on Cambodian authorities to ensure that the provisions of the Constitution, as well as international human rights law, are respected so that judicial independence can be upheld.“An independent judiciary is a fundamental guarantor for the protection of human rights in any country; without independent judges, it is not possible to ensure everyone’s right to a fair trial,” Mr. Ghai and Mr. Despouy said.All judicial appointments, transfers, promotions, suspensions or disciplinary actions in Cambodia are supposed to be decided by the country’s Supreme Council of Magistracy and then implemented by royal decree.But the two experts said the decree of 9 August replacing the President of Cambodia’s Court of Appeal appears to have not been based on a decision by the Supreme Council of Magistracy, but instead followed a request from the Chairman of the Supreme Council for State after a proposal from the Justice Minister and the Co-Chairmen of the Council for Legal and Judicial Reform.“In other words, the replacement of the Appeal Court President was done at the request of the executive branch of government,” the statement said, adding that the appointment of four new members of the Supreme Council of Magistracy by a separate decree on the same day appears to have been similarly made at the request of the executive.Mr. Ghai noted that he has already voiced concern that the existing composition of the Supreme Council of Magistracy, which includes a government minister and a senior member of the ruling party, “does not inspire confidence that the judicial appointment process in Cambodia is free of political control.”Today’s statement said three of the new appointments to the Supreme Council of Magistracy were for positions that are supposed to be reserved for members elected by judges.“No elections appear to have been held for these positions,” Mr. Ghai and Mr. Despouy said. “Indeed, no elections have ever been held for these three elected positions.”Mr. Ghai, a constitutional lawyer and academic from Kenya, and Mr. Despouy, a human rights lawyer and academic from Argentina, are among a series of independent experts appointed by the UN Human Rights Council to monitor issues of concern. 23 August 2007Two United Nations human rights experts today expressed concern over judicial independence in Cambodia following recent appointments that they say seem to contravene the separation of executive and judicial powers enshrined in the country’s Constitution. read more

During yesterday’s meeting with the Foreign Minister, the UN’s Assistant Emergency Relief Coordinator, Ross Mountain, discussed “the deteriorating humanitarian situation resulting from the closures and curfews imposed in the West Bank and Gaza,” spokesperson Hua Jiang told reporters in New York.Mr. Mountain also voiced “serious concern” about the lack of progress in implementing the specific commitments made by Israel to the Secretary-General’s Personal Humanitarian Envoy, Catherine Bertini, during her mission to the region two months ago, Ms. Jiang added.The Assistant Emergency Relief Coordinator is in the region leading a technical assessment mission that will propose a humanitarian action plan for the coming 12 months.

OSU coach Thad Matta speaks to the Buckeyes during a timeout in OSU’s exhibition match-up against Walsh on Nov. 6, 2016. The Buckeyes won 85-67. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Former Photo EditorThad Matta is no longer Ohio State’s men’s basketball coach after he and OSU Athletics Director Gene Smith announced his firing at a press conference Monday afternoon, but he will have a hand in helping to select his successor.The three-time Big Ten Coach of the Year will speak with candidates for his replacement and deliver input to Smith.“I might not necessarily know a particular thing about a particular candidate and he’ll help me try and vet that out,” Smith said.Matta’s consultation will not end there, according to Smith.“If we’re having a particular issue with one of our current athletes, I’ll call Thad, or someone will call Thad and say, ‘Hey, we need to help this young person as they go through this particular challenge,’” Smith said.Smith specified this did not mean that Matta would remain a full-time employee.When Matta and Smith convened for a meeting on Friday, neither anticipated only one would walk out as an OSU employee. But the duo exited the regularly-scheduled sit-down understanding that it would be the last such meeting between the two to simply touch base.At Monday’s press conference, he proclaimed that as soon as the media availability ended, a national search for OSU’s next coach would begin. Smith stated that there will be no timetable for hiring Matta’s replacement. But because of the abnormal time for a coaching search, it may be lengthier than most.“No time is optimal, but obviously this time is not the best,” Smith said. So I need to be sensitive to what I’m dealing with in this window of time. So, I do not have a timeline.”In the interim, the coaching and support staff will remain in place.“So right now, Dave Richardson will be running the strength and conditioning part, working with (athletic trainer) Vince (O’Brien). The assistant coaches are still on staff and they’re still employed. And so they’ll be doing their jobs unless they find another job,” Smith said.During Friday’s meeting, neither Matta nor Smith talked about OSU’s all-time winningest coach leading the Buckeyes for one additional year, Smith said.“It was never a part of our conversation,” Smith said. “I felt where he was and I also quantifiably looked at where we were from my responsibility point of view and just felt like it was time. read more

first_img Some examples of standardised cigarette packs used in Australia By Gráinne Ní Aodha Short URL The Irish Medical Organisation and ASH Ireland welcomed the measure. Patrick Doorley of ASH Ireland said:“…the introduction of standardised packaging in Australia has been hugely positive at every level, including the reduction of smoking prevalence among adults and children.”In the two years following the introduction of plain packaging, smoking rates fell to an historic low of 12.8%. This is down from 15.1% two years before its introduction.Minister for Health Simon Harris and Minister of State Marcella Corcoran Kennedy are both behind the bill.“It has been estimated to cost Irish society a total of €10.7 billion annually in healthcare, productivity and other costs,” according to Harris.Corcoran Kennedy said, “Ireland has the lowest age of children starting to smoke among all the EU Member States and almost 80% of smokers in Ireland start when they are children.“Standardised packaging will reduce the attractiveness of tobacco products and forms a key part of Ireland’s strategy to reduce tobacco use, particularly uptake among children and young people.”Almost 6,000 people die from tobacco related disease and tobacco use.Read: This is the number of ‘current smokers’ in Ireland todayRead: ‘If you smoke 20 cigarettes a day, you inhale a mugful of tar each year’ 37 Comments From September, all cigarette packs sold in Ireland will look the same This makes part of effort to have Ireland tobacco free by 2025. THE GOVERNMENT WILL bring forward legislation today for the standardised packaging of tobacco.The aim of standardised packaging is to make all tobacco packs look less attractive to consumers, to make health warnings more prominent and to prevent packaging from misleading consumers about the harmful effects of tobacco.The signing of this order means that all tobacco products manufactured for sale in Ireland from 30 September 2017 must be in standardised retail packaging.There will be a wash-through period allowed, meaning any products manufactured and placed on the market before the September date will be permitted to stay on the market for a 12-month period.

first_img(WSVN) – As the Thanksgiving holiday fast approaches, the National Fire Prevention Agency is reminding everyone of the dangers that turkey fryers present.“Keeping fire safety top of mind in the kitchen during this joyous but hectic time is important, especially when there’s a lot of activity and people at home,” the agency said.Thanksgiving is the peak day for home cooking fires, followed by the day before the holiday and Christmas Day and Christmas Eve, according to the NFPA’s Fire Analysis & Research Division.In 2015, fire departments across the United States responded to an estimated 1,760 home cooking fires on Thanksgiving. The NFPA says unattended cooking was by far the leading contributing factor in the fires.The NFPA says cooking equipment, including turkey fryers, was involved in almost half of all reported home fires and home fire injuries, and it is the second leading cause of home fire deaths.While the NFPA strongly discourages the use of turkey fryers, they did offer the following safety tips:Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the stovetop so you can keep an eye on the food.Stay in the home when cooking your turkey and check on it frequently.Keep children away from the stove. The stove will be hot and kids should stay 3 feet away.Make sure kids stay away from hot food and liquids. The steam or splash from vegetables, gravy or coffee could cause serious burns.Keep the floor clear so you don’t trip over kids, toys, pocketbooks or bags.Keep knives out of the reach of children.Be sure electric cords from an electric knife, coffee maker, plate warmer or mixer are not dangling off the counter within easy reach of a child.Keep matches and utility lighters out of the reach of children — up high in a locked cabinet.Never leave children alone in room with a lit candle.Make sure your smoke alarms are working.

The new laws will take effect following a 30-day waiting period.City Manager Aimee Kniaziowski says the changes were necessary because the existing code made it difficult for police to respond to reports of public intoxication, offensive behavior and people passed out on city sidewalks.Offenders will be fined $50 for the first citation and $100 for a second offense.Homeless shelter Director Monte Hawver agrees with the revision, but says more could be done to get homeless people off the streets, such as creating jobs and more affordable housing.last_img read more

first_img Share Tags: Puerto Rico Puerto Rico looks to promote ‘no man’s land’ as new tourist hot spot Wednesday, January 25, 2017 VIEQUES, Puerto Rico — A small island long known as a Navy bombing range is gradually trying to turn a no-man’s-land into a booming tourist mecca.Vieques, off the east coast of Puerto Rico, boasts gorgeous beaches, turquoise waters and a stunning bioluminescent bay. But for more than 70 years, most of the island has been off-limits to non-military visitors. Tons of unexploded bombs, rockets and other munitions still lie scattered across the eastern half of the island and the surrounding seabed.One side effect is that much of the island remains tantalizingly undeveloped, a wildlife refuge whose verdant hills and white-sand beaches attracts some 170 bird species and are popular nesting places for leatherback, hawksbill and green sea turtles.“They’re the bread and butter of Vieques,” said Mike Barandiaran, manager of the Vieques National Wildlife Refuge for the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. “The tourist that comes here wants the wild, natural area. And it generates a lot of revenue.” About 67,000 visitors came to the refuge last year, up from 24,000 in recent years.The Naval Training Range shut down in 2001 and since then the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has designated much of it as a Superfund site believed to contain contaminants including mercury, lead and napalm. The U.S. Navy has been working under orders to clean up as much of the place as possible to make it more hospitable for tourists and the more than 9,000 locals alike.More news:  Rome enforces ban on sitting on Spanish StepsMany activists and Puerto Rico’s health department argue that the years of exposure to dangerous substances have led to significantly higher rates of cancer and other health problems. Officials with the island’s previous administration began a process to obtain as much as $1 billion in compensation for environmental damage, but it is unclear if the new administration will pursue that effort.Federal studies have challenged those assertions and Dan Waddill, the Navy’s Vieques restoration branch head, said the Navy has done extensive environmental sampling and air monitoring and has found no violations.“We are very sensitive to the public’s concerns about health, but all our work is done in a way that’s protective of human health and the environment,” he said.The cleanup already has cost more than $220 million, and it’s expected to extend for more than another decade. So far, crews on land have removed some 31,000 bombs, 1,300 rockets and 600 grenades among other items, some of which were practice rounds, Waddill said. Nobody’s sure how much remains.This year alone, the Navy plans to scour 19 square miles (49 square kilometres) of seabed to map areas containing unexploded ordnance to be removed by divers and robots _ eventually opening new beaches and reefs to swimmers and divers.Overall, some 11 square miles (28 square kilometres) of land in Vieques has been re-opened since the cleanup began, and officials hope eventually to open another 16 square miles (41 square kilometres), Barandiaran said. That would create an overall wilderness area about the size of Washington, D.C.More news:  Beep, beep! Transat hits the streets with Cubamania truckBarandiaran said another 2 square miles (5.2 square kilometres) will remain permanently closed to the public for safety reasons.Tourism already has been growing in Vieques _ a boon to the small population of which nearly half live below the poverty level. The island offers horseback riding, snorkeling adventures and trips to a popular bioluminescent bay, one of only a handful in the world.The high-end W Retreat & Spa resort opened in northern Vieques in 2010, and a growing number of hotels, restaurants and vacation homes have opened since.Tourists this year expect to get access to parts of a zone in western Vieques that once served as munition storage depot. Federal authorities said hunting will for the first time be allowed on Vieques at this site, adding that the 400 acres (162 hectares) also will offer hiking, biking, horse and bird-watching trails. That’s encouraging news for Michigan tourist Michelle Brinker, who was visiting Vieques this month for the third time with her husband.“We love this island, and it’s nice to see areas like this opening up to the public,” said Brinker, a 40-year-old pharmacist from Ann Arbor. “It would be nice to hike more in those restricted areas. You jog down there and you go, ‘Oooh, I wonder what’s in there.”’ By: Danica CotoSource: The Associated Press << Previous PostNext Post >>last_img read more

first_imgLook for more coverage about Norwegian’s arrival in Canada in an upcoming issue of Travelweek. Travelweek Group Tags: Canada, Norwegian Air Thursday, June 21, 2018 Posted by Share << Previous PostNext Post >> TORONTO — It won’t be the only low-cost carrier to offer transatlantic routes out of Canada, but its growth rate is off the charts, with 60 routes out of the U.S. just 5 years after entering that market. Now Norwegian Air has confirmed it is coming into Canada with new flights out of Montreal starting fall 2018 and out of Hamilton starting spring 2019 – and it wants to work with travel agents.Seasonal flights from Montreal to the French Caribbean islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique will launch Oct. 29, 2018 and Nov. 1, 2018 respectively, according to the low-cost carrier.Norwegian will also launch the only transatlantic flight out of Hamilton International Airport (YHM) on March 31, 2019, with year-round, daily service to Dublin.“We are very excited about entering the Canadian market, and provide Canadians with Norwegian’s combination of affordable low fares and award-winning service, whether they are heading to the Caribbean or Europe,” says Thomas Ramdahl, Norwegian’s Chief Commercial Officer.He adds: “This is only our first step into Canada and as the world’s fastest-growing airline, we look forward to expanding our presence here in the next few years.”The airline also announced new four times weekly service from both Guadeloupe and Martinique to Cayenne in French Guiana. Service from Fort Lauderdale to both islands will increase to four weekly flights each, and to six weekly flights each from New York-JFK.“Norwegian was the first airline in more than 20 years to link both French Caribbean islands to New York City and in these three years, we have seen our operation continue to grow and expand. We will now be the only airline to connect the French Caribbean with both Canada and the U.S., as well as French Guiana,” said Ramdahl.More news:  Air Canada’s global sales update includes Managing Director, Canada & USA SalesThe Montreal-Guadeloupe flights will operate three times per week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Flights to Martinique will operate three times per week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Launch fares to both cities start at $219 one-way, including taxes. Both routes will operate until end of March 2019.Meanwhile year-round daily service from John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport to Dublin will launch March 31 with one-way introductory fares from $279 including taxes.Cathie Puckering, President & CEO, John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport, says Norwegian’s announcement introducing its first-ever transatlantic flight between Europe and Canada “is a game-changer” for travellers in Southern Ontario.“Hamilton International provides access to a large population base and is well positioned to facilitate low-cost operations for carriers such as Norwegian,” says Puckering. “Our passengers love flying from Hamilton and will now be able to access affordable options to destinations in Europe. We are thrilled to welcome Norwegian and its transatlantic service to Dublin next summer 2019, when people will be able to access this new service exclusively from Hamilton.”Alison Metcalfe, Tourism Ireland’s Head of North America, welcomes the new lift as well. “We are pleased to welcome the launch by Norwegian of a new flight from Hamilton to Dublin, as part of expanding its North American route network to include Canada. Starting in Spring 2019, it’s more good news as we continue to grow Canadian visitors to the island of Ireland. We look forward to working closely with Norwegian to maximize the promotion of the new flight. As an island, the importance of convenient direct air access cannot be overstated in delivering growth in inbound tourism.”More news:  Consolidation in the cruise industry as PONANT set to acquire Paul Gauguin CruisesNorwegian Air was on track to launch in Canada in summer 2018 but the delayed delivery of two B737s derailed those plans, with a too-short pre-sale period.Norwegian isn’t the first LCC to come into Canada with transatlantic flights. Competitors include Primera Air and WOW air. And the LCC phenomenon certainly isn’t new either: Southwest Airlines got the ball rolling in the U.S. in the 1970s and then fares in Europe took a dive with the launch of Ryanair and easyJet in the mid-1980s and mid-1990s.Just about every legacy airline has launched its own low-cost carrier too, from Air Canada Rouge to BA’s Level and Air France’s Joon.So what’s different about Norwegian? Most airline analysts point to the carrier’s aggressive growth strategy. After launching long-haul flights in 2013 Norwegian now has more than 500 routes servicing a network of 150+ destinations, with long-hauls operated through fully-owned subsidiaries.Norwegian has taken enough market share on U.S. transatlantic routes that legacy carriers including Delta and American also brought in bare-bones basic economy fares to Europe.Norwegian is now the world’s sixth largest low-cost airline, carrying 33 million passengers in 2017 on a fleet of more than 150 aircraft, with an average age of 3.7 years.Like just about every LCC and ULCC Norwegian Air doesn’t pay commission but Ramdahl says the carrier is looking at setting up volume-based incentives for the trade.
