By Jorge BarreraAPTN National NewsA Vancouver Island chief backing Shawn Atleo in the current race for national chief of the Assembly of First Nations is calling on opponents to refrain from “wrecking ball” rhetoric in the campaign.Atleo is facing seven opponents in this year’s election, including four women.“We have to tone down the rhetoric,” said Snuneymuxw First Nation Chief Doug White. “We don’t want rhetoric swinging through like a wrecking ball.”White said the attacks against Atleo over his perceived too-close relationship with Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s government follow a pattern in AFN elections where the incumbent is often faces criticism over their relationship to the sitting government.“Look at the history of all the rhetoric around national chief elections for the last 20 years and you will see the ebb and flow of discussions when we have a national chief who is engaging and working with rather than fighting,” said White. “Candidates line up and say false accusations or overstate that someone is on the path of assimilation or too cozy with the feds. This has happened with previous national chiefs.”White was responding to comments made by Onion Lake Cree Nation Chief Wallace Fox who said Atleo was enabling the Conservative government in pushing First Nations toward assimilation. Fox, who is backing former Roseau River chief Terry Nelson in the race, formally nominated Atleo as a candidate in 2009.Fox, whose community is in Saskatchewan and covered by Treaty 6, said Atleo ignored the desire of prairie chiefs to have the AFN focus on pressuring the government to recognize treaty rights. Fox said Atleo’s decision to push ahead with a national panel to study on-reserve education despite the objection of Saskatchewan showed he wasn’t listening. He said Ottawa’s plans to streamline First Nation education with the provinces ignored the treaties, which Fox said guaranteed First Nation control over education.White, whose community is signatory to the Douglas Treaties of the 1850s, said Atleo is a strong advocate of treaty rights .“There has not been a national chief that has taking such a strong focus on treaty,” said White. “Quite the opposite from what Chief Fox is saying, there is nothing going on some path of assimilation.”White said Atleo has been pushing a treaty implementation strategy, birthed from a 2010 resolution from chiefs, that chiefs have been meeting on figuring out the best ways to have treaty rights respected and realized.It’s not Atleo’s job, however, to define how those rights get implemented, said White.“The work of treaty implementation belongs to me as chief of the Snuneymuxw, or to Chief Fox as the chief of his people. It doesn’t belong to the national chief’s role as an advocate. The AFN is not a treaty holder,” said White. “I don’t think any chief should be waiting for the national chief to do their work for them. I think (Atleo) is creating real opportunity and space for local treaty chiefs to do their work more effectively. He is raising the issue in a way that it has never been raised before.”Aside from Nelson, Atleo is also facing challenges from two AFN vice-chiefs including George Stanley, from Frog Lake First Nation, and Dene National Chief Bill Erasmus, from the Northwest Territories.Four women are also vying for the job of national chief and they include: Ellen Gabriel, a Mohawk from Kanesatake who rose to prominence as a spokesperson during the Oka crisis, Joan Jack, an Ojibway lawyer from the Berens River First Nation, former Treaty 3 grand chief Diane Kelly, a lawyer from Ojibways of Onigaming First Nation, and Pam Palmater, a Mi’kmaq lawyer and professor at Ryerson university.The vote is scheduled for July 18 in Toronto.

The report, Confronting the Crisis: Its Impact on the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Industry, highlights some harsh realities for the industry and explains how it can position itself for recovery in the future.“Despite difficult times, there are reasons to be optimistic,” said Hamadoun Touré, Secretary-General of the UN International Telecommunication Union (ITU) at the launch of his agency’s report yesterday. Speaking at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Mr. Touré added that innovation is the key to recovery, stressing that “having contributed consistently as a high-growth sector in its own right, ICTs can now power economic recovery across all sectors. “Along with stimulus packages put together by Governments, the ICT industry must continue to invest in infrastructure and the roll out of cost-effective services, such as next-generation networks (NGNs).”The report noted that although credit is now more difficult to come by and more expensive, with financing costs on average 3 to 4 per cent higher year-on-year, savvy businesses can take advantage of the economic turmoil to reposition their services for the upturn. Funding is still available for firms with sound business models, established demand and early projected cash flows, according to the report. But it stressed that alternative sources of financing are now needed, with a growing role for government and economic stimulus packages.Responding to the financial pressure facing the private sector, some Governments have stepped in to diminish the impact on the transition to NGNs, which can carry voice, data and media services simultaneously. Several administrations have also announced commitments to invest in their national infrastructure, while others, such as the European Union, have included the roll-out of broadband networks in their economic stimulus packages. The report highlighted the soaring growth in the mobile telephone business in developing countries, especially in large emerging markets, including Brazil, India and Nigeria, which registered record additional subscribers in September and October 2008, as an example of opportunity for growth. 17 February 2009The global financial crisis could provide entrepreneurial opportunities for budding information and communication technology (ICT) businesses, which in turn can power economic recovery, according to a new United Nations report. read more
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg will today announce £213 million of joint government and industry investment to strengthen UK advanced manufacturing supply chains – creating over 11,000 new jobs and safeguarding another 5,000.Over £73 million has been awarded from Round 2 of the Advanced Manufacturing Supply Chain Initiative (AMSCI) to 12 national supply chain projects and a further £140 million will be invested by the private sector.Designed to support projects that deliver economic growth and promote closer collaboration within the supply chain, AMSCI accepts applications from established advanced or high value manufacturing sectors, such as automotive, aerospace and chemical industries. It also welcomes applications from new growth areas where the UK is well placed to take a global lead, such as renewable energy and other low carbon sectors.The automotive sector was a major beneficiary from Round 2 of the fund and full details of successful projects are available here.Nick Clegg said, “Boosting jobs and growth is my number one priority to build a stronger economy. This investment will secure Britain’s future as a world leader in industries like cars, where we have traditionally taken the lead, and new technologies such as wind turbine gears and semiconductor chips.”Following the announcement – to be made at the 2013 BIS Manufacturing Summit at the Heritage Motor Centre in Warwickshire – the Deputy Prime Minister will be joined by Business Secretary Vince Cable to tour Aston Martin in Gaydon as the company marks its centenary year.They will see production of the new Rapide S cars and announce support of £1.6 million from Round 2 of the Regional Growth Fund to develop the project and has helped to bring manufacturing back to the UK.The move creates 20 new jobs and protects over 70 further roles at Aston Martin’s headquarters in Gaydon as well as at the new facility in Coventry.Mr Clegg continued, “Investing in the iconic Aston Martin means that our home grown expert engineers will make the Rapide S here which is excellent news. The Regional Growth Fund is all about giving power to businesses and investing in projects that will have a long-term impact on local areas.”Business Secretary Vince Cable MP said, “Aston Martin is an iconic British brand, so it should be made in the UK. Otherwise it’s like having champagne from Bulgaria or a Swiss watch built in Swaziland.“As we celebrate Aston Martin’s 100th anniversary, it’s encouraging to see the company investing in new technologies and creating valuable British jobs outside of London. This is exactly the type of high-value manufacturing that we excel at here in the UK. Our Industrial Strategy, which creates a joint business plan between government and industry, will ensure that we retain and grow these types of businesses in the long term.”Dr Ulrich Bez, Aston Martin CEO said, “The RGF backing has helped us to bring production of the new Rapide S, which will make its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show next week, back to the Midlands. We are looking forward to support from the government for our future significant investment plans, which will help to safeguard existing jobs and create more.”The third annual Manufacturing Summit brings together government and key industry leaders to discuss and debate industry progress, the upcoming challenges and next steps for the sector. Kicking- off today’s Summit, Jaguar Land Rover, one the UK’s leading manufacturers of premium vehicles, urged government to continue to support measures that will enhance innovation and engineering skills, ensuring Britain’s future manufacturing competitiveness.Mike Wright, Executive Director at Jaguar Land Rover, encouraged Ministers and business leaders gathered at the event to make innovation the government’s key economic priority in the future to offset challenges facing UK manufacturers.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) read more
Independence Group’s Nova nickel operation is set to play host to Australia’s first fully-integrated commercial hybrid diesel/solar photovoltaic (PV) facility after the company signed a contract amendment with remote power generation specialist Zenith Energy.The changes to the existing power purchase agreement, signed by Zenith and Independence back in 2015, will incorporate a solar PV facility with a forecast 12.5 GWh/y.Zenith’s subsidiary, Zenith Pacific, will now build, own and operate a hybrid diesel/solar PV power station of around 26 MW in installed capacity to “reliably and efficiently service the power needs of the Nova operation”, the company said.Zenith has made huge strides since becoming a public entity via the ASX in May, sealing contracts with the likes of Gascoyne Resources, for its Dalgaranga gold project, and Dacian Gold, for its recently opened Mt Morgans gold mine.Managing Director of Zenith Energy, Hamish Moffat said: “This development represents the first fully integrated and commercial hybrid diesel/solar PV facility in Australia and is a step forward in future renewable energy solutions.”The solar PV will include “state-of-the-art PV modules, single axis tracking, inverters, communications and control system technology”, Zenith said.The hybrid power station will incorporate high efficiency diesel-fuelled generators and solar PV generation.The integrated facility is expected to be completed within the first quarter of Zenith’s 2020 financial year (to end-June, 2020). The initial supply period is for six years with an option for Zenith to extend for a further two years.Independence Group’s Managing Director, Peter Bradford said: “The development of this innovative hybrid energy solution will…improve our cost structure with targeted renewable power insertion of up to 50% of demand via the solar PV facility.”Nova is in the Fraser Range of Western Australia, some 160 km east-northeast of Norseman. It produced 22,258 t of nickel and 9,545 t of copper in its first full year of operation in the 2018 financial year. read more
Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Sometimes the only people that know what a carer is going through is another carer facing the same burdens, the same challenges. In Australia’s multicultural community, often people with disability or those caring for them have an added burden, as they are battling language and culture barriers. With ADEC Greek Carers Group proposed to take off this October in Melbourne’s western suburb of Werribee, in the City of Wyndham, carers of Greek background will have the opportunity to share their experiences and support, and learn from one another in a group setting.A not-for-profit organisation, ADEC (Action on Disability within Ethnic Communities) strives to empower people living with disabilities from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds (CALD), their carers and families to fully participate as members of the Victorian community, and to ensure that service systems are inclusive and responsive to their needs. And Effie Meehan knows best the importance of assistance for people with disability and their carers within ethnic communities, the need of which inspired her to found ADEC in the early 1980s.Greek Australian Effie Meehan, one of ADEC’s most prominent ambassadors and facilitator of Greek groups, told Neos Kosmos the proposal for the Greek Carers Group in the western suburbs comes after a successful 10 year running of a first of its kind group in Preston. With support from the City of Wyndham council that will provide the location, the Werribee group is expected to take off in late October.“There is a need for these groups in Werribee, with its large Greek – and Italian – community. “Our group in Preston arose from six and ten members, to 18-30 carers that attend the sessions now. We go out once a month, another month we have sessions that always feature a guest speaker, and the carers love it. They are looking forward every month to the next meeting of the group,” Effie told Neos Kosmos. “These groups are very important because these carers often can’t go out at all as they look after someone with disability, and also they can’t speak English. When they come to the group, they have common things and experiences to share – they talk, they laugh, they cry together. “I would like to encourage all the Greek carers from the Wyndham area to join us.”ADEC have been providing assistance to people living with a disability and their carers from CALD backgrounds for over thirty years. Some of the services they provide include advocacy, multicultural respite, group activities, EAL training and transcultural mental health assistance. The goal of ADEC’s Transcultural Mental Health Access Program is to improve access to mental health services for people from CALD backgrounds. The information session date for the Greek Carers Group in Wyndham will be held on Wednesday 22 October, from 11.00 am to 1.00 pm, at the Civic Centre, 45 Princes Highway, Werribee.Detailed information about the work that ADEC undertakes can be found at www.adec.org.auFor more information about Greek Carers Groups contact ADEC on 03 9480 1666 or firstname.lastname@example.org read more
Greffe d’organes : une loi contre le tourisme de transplantationFrance – Une députée vient de déposer une proposition de loi visant à lutter contre le tourisme organisé dans les pays pauvres en vue d’une greffe d’organe.Cadre en milieu hospitalier, la députée UMP Valérie Boyer a déposé le 19 octobre dernier une proposition de loi qui a pour but d’endiguer le tourisme de transplantation. Si elle est adoptée, ce sera sous forme d’un amendement au projet de révision des lois de bioéthique. Le phénomène du tourisme de transplantation reste assez marginal en France, puisque seulement trois cas ont été avérés en 2009, sur quatre patients greffés à l’étranger. Au niveau mondial, selon l’Organisation mondiale de la santé, 10% des transplantations effectuées chaque année sont issues de transactions financières entre “touristes-patients” et personnes démunies, dans des pays en voie de développement. Ces pratiques concernent majoritairement des greffes de rein avec des donneurs vivants, principalement en Chine, au Pakistan et aux Philippines.Le 22 octobre 2010 à 11:33 • Emmanuel Perrin read more

AT&T Sprint CNET may get a commission from retail offers. Sprint 1:58 Internet Services Mobile $T CEO Randall Stephenson responds to $S lawsuit pic.twitter.com/uzt3odZHID— Squawk Box (@SquawkCNBC) February 8, 2019 $999 Sprint calls the branding a “lie.” John Greim/LightRocket via Getty Images Sprint sued AT&T on Thursday over its use of 5G E branding on phones that are only tapping into advanced 4G LTE.AT&T started using the 5G Evolution marketing last year, reasoning that it serves as a foundation for true 5G next-generation cellular technology. However, 5G E doesn’t mean your 4G phone can actually connect to a 5G network — causing rivals Verizon and T-Mobile to slam it as “fake 5G.” The Sprint lawsuit claims that AT&T is using “numerous deceptive tactics to mislead consumers.”Android phones started displaying 5G E connectivity in January, and it reportedly started appearing on Apple iPhones in recent days. Sprint’s lawsuit highlights a survey it commissioned that found 54 percent of consumers think AT&T’s 5G E is the “same as or better than a 5G network” and 43 percent incorrectly think they can currently buy an AT&T phone that can connect to a 5G network.Sprint also took issue with AT&T Communications CEO John Donovan’s comments at a CES 2019 keynote address last month, where he expressed pride that his company “broke our industry’s narrative” with the branding. His comments highlight how aggressive and confusing the carriers’ race to 5G has become.In an emailed statement, Sprint said AT&T is “deliberately deceiving consumers” with the branding.”AT&T is just like Sprint and all the other major wireless carriers currently operating a nationwide 4G LTE network,” Sprint spokesperson Lisa Belot said in the email. “AT&T’s deceptive ads have harmed consumers by persuading them to purchase or continue purchasing AT&T’s services based on the lie that they are offering 5G.”Verizon spokesman Jeffrey Nelson took a swipe at AT&T on Twitter.”5Ge. It’s pretend, it’s fake, it’s the kind of BS that gives marketers, communicators businesses and the wireless industry a black eye,” he wrote. “So let’s have some fun. Some people call it “Faux Five G”. There’s “5G Eventually”. What’s your name for @ATT false marketing?”Sprint filed the lawsuit in US District Court in the Southern District of New York.

Kolkata: Art lovers in the city for the first time will get the opportunity to witness a number of oil paintings by eminent painters including Rabindranath Tagore himself with the Rabindra Bharati Museum (RBM) putting on display these artworks at the Jorasanko campus of Rabindra Bharati University (RBU) on the occasion of the 158th birth anniversary of the legend which falls on May 9.”There are 72 oil paintings by Tagore’s contemporaries in our collection. Some larger paintings are already on display at the Western Art Gallery of the Museum but 53 of them, mostly smaller in size, were kept in the air-conditioned museum strong room away from public view for shortage of space. All these will be unveiled in a visible storage space that has been created in the campus,” said Baisakhi Mitra, curator-in-charge of RBM. Bulk of this collection was gifted by Maharaja Prabirendra Mohan Tagore and Kumar Purnendu Nath Tagore of Pathuriaghata. The conditions of the paintings deteriorated over time due to natural processes and the effects of pollution in the heart of Kolkata.

However, even after the restoration work carried out in two phases that ended in July 2013, the paintings again found its place in the strong room due to paucity of display space. “A grant from the Union Ministry of Culture helped us in setting up a visible storage space in which 53 of the remaining oil paintings could be displayed for art connoisseurs across the world,” said RBU Vice-Chancellor Sabyasachi Basu Ray Chaudhury. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in stateThe most important painting that will be displayed is the one titled “Three Witches from Macbeth” done by Tagore himself who began painting it when he was in his 60s. Tagore had produced around 3,000 drawings and paintings and was the first Indian artist to exhibit his works across Europe, Russia and the US in 1930. His painting style was very individualistic, characterised by simple bold forms and rhythmic quality and later inspired several modern artists. An oil painting by Hitendranath Tagore, the eldest son of Hemendranath, Debendranath’s third son, “Portrait of Maharshi Debendranath Tagore” done by Sashi Kumar Hesh, “Composition — Omar Khyam/Arabian Nights” by Asit Halder, “Family” by Ramkinkar Beij are among the noted paintings that will be on display. The visual storage titled “Abanindranath Tagore — Visual Storage” will also showcase works by eminent painters who were contemporary of Tagore including Nirode Majumdar, Sukhomoy Mitra, Satyen Ghosal, Santosh Arora and a few unknown artists too. read more
Aaron Rodgers is propping up an average Green Bay rosterGreen Bay soundly beat the Bears last night, but when he was watching the game, Colin came away more convinced than ever that Aaron Rodgers is propping up an otherwise average roster.Even though the Packers easily won the game, Colin thought the Bears had the better overall roster, unfortunately they just have terrible quarterback play. The Packers don’t have any notable pass rushers, and were using a converted wide receiver playing running back in Ty Montgomery. He went down last night, and they’re now down to their third string back.The Packers will likely make the playoffs this year, but if they do, it’s only because of Rodgers. At this point, he’s propping up the entire team. College basketball coaches’ silence over the recruiting scandal is deafeningA college coach finally addressed the college basketball recruiting scandal that has exposed the criminal scandal involving shoe companies and college coaches funneling top prospects to schools for cash.Unfortunately, it wasn’t a college basketball coach, it was Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer. Meyer came out strongly against the conduct of coaches who flaunt the NCAA recruiting rules, and advocated for a zero tolerance for coaches who engage in such conduct, and a banning of coaches who get caught.College hoops coaches haven’t made a peep about what is a massive problem in their sport, and it’s embarrassing. They can’t say what should be said because they’re still dependent on the shoe companies that are the biggest cash source for a sport that’s been declining for 20 years.Also:Colin’s NFL Week 4 Blazin’ 5Guests:Greg Jennings – FS1 Analyst and Super Bowl Champion with the Packers is in-studio to talk Packers/Bears; why he doesn’t think Danny Travathan should be suspended for his hit on Devante Adams;Eric Dickerson – FS1 Analyst and NFL Hall of Fame running back is in studio talking Bears/Packers; illegal hits; what the Packers would be without Aaron Rodgers; and the NCAA recruiting scandal.Jason McIntyre – Founder of The Big Lead and Speak for Yourself contributor is in-studio to explain why he would take Deshaun Watson over Cam Newton right now; and why he thinks the young Celtics will be better than the old Cavs.Ryan Leaf – Former NFL QB is in-studio to discuss if the Bears should switch to Mitchell Trubisky; USC/Washington State; if he thinks the Cougars can pull the upset; and his take on college recruiting. read more
The OECD, a global watchdog, says that not only has social and political implications but also economic ones.“Put simply: rising inequality is bad for long-term growth,” the OECD concluded in its report, “In It Together, Why Less Inequality Benefits All.”An increase in income inequality between 1985 and 2005 knocked 4.7 percentage points off cumulative growth between 1990 and 2010 on average across a range of its 34 member countries, the OECD said.The problem is particularly acute in the U.S.: Between 2008 and 2013, real average household disposable income at the top 10 percent rose 10.6 percent, while in the bottom 10 percent it fell 3.2 percent, the OECD said. Austria, Denmark and France are other countries where rising income at the top has been accompanied by falling incomes at the bottom.The average income of the top 10 percent in the U.S. was 19 times higher than the bottom 10 percent in 2013, far higher than the OECD average of 9.6 times. The U.S. figure rose from just 11 times higher 30 years ago, the OECD said.The report adds fuel to the argument popularized in French economist Thomas Piketty’s 2014 best-seller “Capital in the Twenty-First Century.” Top Stories PARIS (AP) — The widening gap between haves and have-nots in much of the developed world not only raises concerns about the fraying social fabric — it’s also dramatically holding back economic growth, according to a new global study.Far from a rising tide lifting all ships, income inequality increases in good economic times as well as bad, Thursday’s report from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development says. Policies to improve women’s treatment in the labor market and measures to reverse the growing share of low-quality, “dead-end” jobs are key to reducing income inequality and unlocking more economic growth, the OECD said.___On the Web: http://www.oecd.org___Follow Greg Keller on Twitter at https://twitter.com/Greg_KellerCopyright © The Associated Press.

The ruling is the result of a 2004 US Government submission to the WTO that disputed the legality of the subsidies. The decision, which was made public last week, also found that a range of government funding for Airbus research and infrastructure development violated international trade agreements. “This is a landmark decision and sweeping legal victory over the launch aid subsidies that fueled the rise of Airbus and that continue to provide its products a major cost advantage,” said Boeing Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Jim McNerney. Airbus currently controls more than half of the commercial airplane market, a feat the panel in charge of the decision said could not have been achieved without the illegal subsidies. Boeing Executive Vice President and General Counsel J. Michael Luttig said that the ruling unequivocally declares that the subsidies have been market-disorienting and have caused significant harm to America’s aerospace industry and its workers.“Compliance with the WTO’s ruling is essential to establishing a fair and level playing field between Boeing and Airbus. It also is essential to preserving the integrity of the WTO process and, by extension, the integrity of the rules-based trading system that has been a key driver of global economic growth,” he said. Ludwig added that the European launch aid provided for the development of the Airbus A380 had been found to include export-contingent subsidies, which are prohibited under WTO rules and are required to be withdrawn without delay. “Under today’s decision, Airbus must repay the $4 billion in illegal launch aid it received for the A380 or restructure the A380’s financing to proven commercial terms. Likewise, Airbus must abandon its plans to finance the A350 through the use of illegal subsidies,” he said. According to a report in The Post and Courier, Airbus has promised to appeal the findings.An Airbus counterclaim that accuses the US government of illegally subsidizing Boeing is expected to be decided upon in mid July.
