First Nations peoples sytematically excluded from juries Ontario coroner

first_imgAPTN National NewsA coroner’s ruling in Northern Ontario is supporting the claims of First Nations in the area that juries are excluding Aboriginal people.The Ontario government is already planning an inquiry into the issue.It’s important because juries are used not only in trials, but in the proceedings such as corner’s inquests where a jury makes findings and recommendations.As APTN National News reporter Tiar Wilson found out, in Thunder Bay, Ont., this challenge to the legal system was sparked by a series of tragedies.last_img

Spirit AeroSystems says it will lay off about 360 workers part of

by Roxana Hegeman, The Associated Press Posted Jul 25, 2013 12:24 pm MDT WICHITA, Kan. – Spirit AeroSystems announced Thursday it is laying off about 360 salaried support and management employees at its Kansas and Oklahoma facilities.The Wichita-based aircraft parts maker said it remains strong with a “robust backlog” of orders worth about $36 billion.“Today’s action is a strategic move to make the company more competitive in a cost-sensitive environment, and results from an ongoing workforce assessment designed to reduce overhead costs, increase efficiency and drive improved performance,” the company said in a news release.Spirit AeroSystems, which makes large sections of airplanes assembled by companies such as Boeing and Airbus, saw its first-quarter net income rise 10 per cent as demand for commercial planes increased. Deliveries for commercial airplanes rose 9 per cent from a year earlier and production is accelerating on several of the key passenger jets made by Boeing and Airbus.While deliveries of finished 787s were halted for nearly the entire quarter because of malfunctioning batteries, production by Boeing and its suppliers continued. Spirit delivered sections for 17 787s during the quarter, up from 15 during the fourth quarter of 2012.Larry Lawson, the company’s new president and CEO, said in May that Spirit would do a “comprehensive evaluation” of the development programs” in Tulsa, Okla., Wichita, Kinston, N.C., and St. Nazaire in France.That is where sections of the 787 and the new Airbus A350 are made. Lawson said at the time that one of the company’s goals in the future will be to cut costs in the manufacturing of new planes.

Union Hackers have personnel data Social Security numbers on every US employee

FILE – In this June 5, 2015, file photo, a gate leading to the Homeland Security Department headquarters in northwest Washington. Hackers stole personnel data and Social Security numbers for every federal employee, a government worker union said Thursday, June 11, 2015, charging that the cyberattack on U.S. employee data is far worse than the Obama administration has acknowledged. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh, File) WASHINGTON – Hackers stole personnel data and Social Security numbers for every federal employee, a government worker union said Thursday, asserting that the cyber theft of U.S. employee information was more damaging than the Obama administration has acknowledged.Sen. Harry Reid, the Democratic leader, said on the Senate floor that the December hack into Office of Personnel Management data was carried out by “the Chinese” without specifying whether he meant the Chinese government or individuals. Reid is one of eight lawmakers briefed on the most secret intelligence information. U.S. officials have declined to publicly blame China, which has denied involvement.J. David Cox, president of the American Federation of Government Employees, said in a letter to OPM director Katherine Archuleta that based on the incomplete information the union received from OPM, “We believe that the Central Personnel Data File was the targeted database, and that the hackers are now in possession of all personnel data for every federal employee, every federal retiree, and up to one million former federal employees.”The OPM data file contains the records of non-military, non-intelligence executive branch employees, which covers most federal civilian employees but not, for example, members of Congress and their staffs.The union believes the hackers stole military records and veterans’ status information, address, birth date, job and pay history, health insurance, life insurance and pension information; and age, gender and race data, he said. The letter was obtained by The Associated Press.The union, which does not have direct access to the investigation, said it is basing its assessment on “sketchy” information provided by OPM. The agency has sought to downplay the damage, saying what was taken “could include” personnel file information such as Social Security numbers and birth dates.“We believe that Social Security numbers were not encrypted, a cybersecurity failure that is absolutely indefensible and outrageous,” Cox said in the letter. The union called the breach “an abysmal failure on the part of the agency to guard data that has been entrusted to it by the federal workforce.”Samuel Schumach, an OPM spokesman, said that “for security reasons, we will not discuss specifics of the information that might have been compromised.”The central personnel data file contains up to 780 separate pieces of information about an employee.Cox complained in the letter that “very little substantive information has been shared with us, despite the fact that we represent more than 670,000 federal employees in departments and agencies throughout the executive branch.”The union’s release and Reid’s comment in the Senate put into sharper focus what is looking like a massive cyber espionage success by China. Sen. Susan Collins, an intelligence committee member, has also said the hack came from China.Mike Rogers, the former chairman of the House intelligence committee, said last week that Chinese intelligence agencies have for some time been seeking to assemble a database of information about Americans. Those personal details can be used for blackmail, or also to shape bogus emails designed to appear legitimate while injecting spyware on the networks of government agencies or businesses Chinese hackers are trying to penetrate.U.S. intelligence officials say China, like the U.S., spies for national security advantage. Unlike the U.S., they say, China also engages in large-scale theft of corporate secrets for the benefit of state-sponsored enterprises that compete with Western companies. Nearly every major U.S. company has been hacked from China, they say.The Office of Personnel Management is also a repository for extremely sensitive information assembled through background investigations of employees and contractors who hold security clearances. OPM’s Schumach has said there is “no evidence” that information was taken. But there is growing skepticism among intelligence agency employees and contractors about that claim.In the Senate on Thursday, Democrats blocked a Republican effort to add a cybersecurity bill to a sweeping defence measure. The vote was 56-40, four votes short of the number necessary.Democrats had warned of the dangers of cyberspying after the theft of government personnel files, but Democrats voted against moving ahead on the legislation, frustrated with the GOP-led effort to tie the two bills together. President Barack Obama has threatened to veto the defence legislation over budget changes by the GOP.“The issue of cybersecurity is simply too important to be used as a political chit and tucked away in separate legislation.” said Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del.___Associated Press writers Donna Cassata and Eric Tucker contributed to this report. by Ken Dilanian, The Associated Press Posted Jun 11, 2015 2:01 pm MDT Last Updated Jun 12, 2015 at 3:03 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Union: Hackers have personnel data, Social Security numbers on every US employee read more

Warner Music says streaming revenue bigger than downloads

Warner Music says streaming revenue bigger than downloads LOS ANGELES, Calif. – In a further sign that the download era is waning, Warner Music Group says it made more money from streaming platforms than any other single source of recorded music revenue in the latest quarter.Warner claims it is the first of the three majors to hit the milestone. But the others are sure to follow.Last month, the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry said streaming revenue globally grew 45 per cent last year, while the number of subscribers who paid for services like Spotify and Apple Music leapt 66 per cent to 68 million. Meanwhile, the IFPI said download revenue dropped 10.5 per cent.For Warner, streaming revenue grew 59 per cent in the quarter through March, helping boost overall revenue by 10 per cent to $745 million. by The Associated Press Posted May 6, 2016 11:15 am MDT Last Updated May 6, 2016 at 12:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Ford apprentices Make it in Great Britain

Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) Ford’s UK-based apprentices involved in the design, development and production of high-technology engines have supported the launch of government’s ‘Make it in Great Britain’ initiative, which aims to transform the image of UK manufacturing and raise awareness of its importance to the economy.The apprentices, working through the four-year in-house apprenticeship programme are based at Ford’s diesel engine production plant at Dagenham and at Ford Bridgend in Wales, home of the EcoBoost petrol engine production.Business Secretary, Vince Cable, and Business Minister, Mark Prisk, launched the campaign at the Department for Business, Innovations and Skills, where industry experts, apprentices and prospective future engineers met to discuss modern manufacturing and careers.“Manufacturing is our most exportable sector and is at the heart of our long term economic vision,” said Business Secretary, Vince Cable. “We have outstanding manufacturing companies, both large and small and today I want to call on them to join us in being part of the ‘Make it in Great Britain’ campaign.”Speaking in support of the campaign, Joe Greenwell, Ford of Britain Chairman, said, “I am very happy to represent Ford during the government’s ‘Make it in Great Britain’ campaign. Ford has a strong manufacturing reputation in the UK and today builds nearly two million engines annually at our Bridgend and Dagenham engine plants, 30,000 Ford Transit Vans at Southampton, and over 500,000 transmissions at Halewood transmission plant, as part of the Getrag-Ford joint venture.”The government initiative includes a specific element, the ‘Make it in Great Britain’ Challenge, which focuses on new innovations yet to be brought to market. The campaign will culminate at the Science Museum during the Olympic Games in 2012.Building on the success of the ‘See Inside Manufacturing’ initiative that launched earlier this year, the exhibition will celebrate the achievements of the nation’s manufacturing industries and will aim to encourage young people to consider careers in industry.Follow the links below for more information about:The ‘Make it in Great Britain’ campaignThe ‘See Inside Manufacturing’ initiativeStats and facts about the UK automotive industry read more

Football Its time to go for Parris Campbell at Hback

OSU sophomore wide receiver Parris Campbell (21) pumps himself up before their game on Nov. 19, 2016 at Spartan Stadium. The Buckeyes won 17-16. Credit: Mason Swires | Assistant Photo EditorWalking off the field after Ohio State’s loss to Clemson in the Fiesta Bowl, redshirt junior wide receiver Parris Campbell said something clicked in him.After another disappointing season of limited production for the former four-star recruit from Akron St. Vincent St. Mary High School, he decided his fourth season in the program would be different.“I think something kind of clicked in me, like, you know, it’s time to go,” Campbell said. “I’ve been here for a while, gotta make an impact now. I haven’t had the career I’ve wanted to thus far, and that’s what kind of clicked in me and I have a total different mindset this year.”The OSU football team’s No. 1 priority this spring — and in the ensuing days until the first game of the 2017 season — has been, and will be, bolstering the offense to its dominant form when the Buckeyes won the 2014 national championship.Even with new offensive coordinators Ryan Day and Kevin Wilson, how is the Buckeye offense supposed to improve with the departure of arguably its best player a season ago in H-back Curtis Samuel? Campbell is next up at the position.“For me, I think that I always had (the skill set), just from high school playing running back,” Campbell said. “Here, the H-back is like a premier position, so I mean it entails being a complete receiver and also having running back tendencies.”Samuel did everything last season for an OSU team that came a game shy of playing for a national championship. The soon-to-be NFL draft pick was the only player in Division I with at least 700 yards rushing (771) and receiving (865).Campbell redshirted his first season at OSU and suspensions threw him into the starting lineup in the 2015 season opener, but he hasn’t had the impact that he said he imagined he would have when he arrived in Columbus. So far with OSU, Campbell has 13 catches for 121 yards and four carries for 54 yards and a touchdown.The H-back position has been the glue of the OSU offense. The production of that position has dictated the flow of the wide-receiver unit. Campbell, however, has yet to show potential stardom on the field, mostly being an impact player on special teams and as a blocker at receiver.Nonetheless, Campbell said the H-back position is probably where he fits best in coach Urban Meyer’s offensive scheme, given his background as a running back in high school. Wide receivers coach Zach Smith added that Campbell’s ability in the running game and passing game is why he’s the primary option to replace Samuel.“It’s where I think he needed to be,” Smith said.Samuel played in his true freshman season, and it didn’t take long to see he had All-American potential. So when the time came, Samuel stepped up as expected. Now the unproven Campbell is thrown into arguably the most important position on an offensive unit that needs improvement after losing its two most influential targets in the passing game.“Curtis left, but we have to have a guy that is if not better, the same exact qualities and tendencies,” Campbell said. “We always look to the H-(backs) to have big seasons and kind of be that guy.”His big breakout season starts on Saturday in the spring game, where the development of Campbell and the rest of the receivers will be put to the test. Separation from the defense and execution on the deep ball have been the main points of emphasis for the receivers this spring. Campbell’s improvement in those two areas might be an early indicator for his potential at the position.“I gave him a plan when we got back from the bowl game, and he killed it,” Smith said. “He’s playing at another level right now.” read more

Indoor Google Maps comes to Android

first_imgGoogle Blog, via Techcrunch Have you ever missed a flight because you couldn’t find the gate? Do you often get lost in the mall, trying to find the nearest Cinnabon? If so, Google is looking out for you. The search giant has added indoor maps of select malls, airports, and retail stores to its Android version of Google Maps.The update, version 6.0, shows your location, as the familiar blue dot, in relation to airport gates, mall stores, and retail departments. Google Maps has previously shown some indoor stores, but now it also displays the concourse and walkway. It can also determine what floor you’re on, and display the corresponding map.GPS signals are typically horrible while indoors, so indoor maps is difficult to implement. Cell tower triangulation is used here, but the biggest boost in accuracy comes from WiFi hotspots. Google has created a database of routers’ signals, and they use your proximity to these networks to find your precise location. The quantity of logged hotspots will determine how precise it is.The service is launching not only with limited locations, but also with limited functionality. Searching is currently unavailable on indoor maps, as is turn-by-turn navigation (“in 30 feet, turn left at Foot Locker, and Krispy Kreme will be on the right”). Google is silent on these features, but logic dictates that they will be added soon.Google is also mum on adding indoor maps to iOS. Judging by the prickly relationship between Google and Apple, this may never happen. We could see an Apple Maps service before we see Mountain View and Cupertino collaborate on this.The initial list of retail partners includes: Mall of America, IKEA, Home Depot, select Macy’s, and Bloomingdale’s. It also works in airports like Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Chicago O’Hare, and San Francisco International Airport. The full list is here.You can find out more in these Google videos:last_img read more

Hokkaido IR fate in limbo as Governor Takahashi states importance of positive

first_imgThe Hokkaido Shimbun has reported that during general questions at the Hokkaido Assembly held on the 20 of February, Governor Harumi Takahashi expressed that “it is important to promote initiatives to attract an IR assuming considerations will be made for a full range of measures to tackle concerns.”The locations that have thrown their names into the hat to attract an IR to Hokkaido are Tomakomai City, Rustsu in Shiribeshi and Kushiro City. Load More Huawei Japan joins Kansai Economic Federation with eye on World Expo 2025 and Osaka IR RelatedPosts Genting’s Resorts World Las Vegas names five key additions to executive team Lack of premium mass strategy begs questions of SJM’s Grand Lisboa Palace launch: analysts A consultation committee made up of IR experts has been established and Governor Takahashi has been pushing the positive attitude toward an IR bid and its financial impact.However, on 15 December last year she declared that she would not run for governor this spring and would instead run as a Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) candidate for the Upper House elections in the summer. She has avoided making statements about IRs since then.In this assembly, while she did mention that she thinks progress with the initiative is important, she avoided being drawn into making a judgment on whether Hokkaido should be making an IR bid.The Hokkaido governor elections are scheduled to be announced on 21 March and the ballots will be cast on 7 April. The LDP is at its core a conservative party and has unified behind Naomichi Suzuki, mayor of Yubari, in their recommendation, while the opposition party is fielding Tomohiro Ishikawa, former member of the Lower House.Suzuki has maintained a positive attitude towards IRs while also saying, “There must be comprehensive consideration given the financial positives and negative aspects such as problem gambling. That judgment should be made from the view of the residents.”On the other hand, Ishikawa has expressed concerns about the contribution to economic growth. He is opposed to an IR bid, stating, “The issue of problem gambling has not been resolved.”With Governor Takahashi moving on, the decision on whether to push ahead with an IR bid will be made by the incoming governor. The April election results will be pivotal in determining the fate of an IR in Hokkaido.last_img read more

Senate advances Port Spencer as Arctic port

first_imgA map of the Point Spencer allotment shows the BSNC portion in green, the Coast Guard portion in purple, and the State of Alaska portion in checkerboard. (Image: Office of Rep. Don Young, Google)Port Clarence is one small step closer to serving as the nation’s Arctic deep draft port.Download AudioIn a press release from Friday, Sen. Lisa Murkowski announced the senate passed the Point Spencer Land Conveyance Act. Murkowski said the act would “streamline future infrastructure development and potential uses of Point Spencer.”Point Spencer is the spit of land that shield’s Port Clarence Bay from the Bering Sea. The natural deep water port is about 120 nautical miles northwest of Nome.For nearly fifty years, Point Spencer was home to a Coast Guard facility and airstrip. The facility was decommissioned in 2010.The Land Conveyance Act was originally introduced by Murkowski in May, with support from both Senator Dan Sullivan and Congressman Don Young. Through land transfers, the act is intended to establish a public-private partnership between Bering Straits Native Corporation and the state of Alaska.While the Coast Guard will retain their footprint at Point Spencer, the federal government will transfer approximately 2,500 acres of land to local, state, and federal stakeholders.The act will also establish the Port Coordination Advisory Council for the Port of Point Spencer. According to the legislation, the council will “help coordinate infrastructure development and operations” at the deep-draft port.The Point Spencer Land Conveyance Act was included in the Coast Guard Authorization Act, which the Senate passed unanimously on Friday.last_img read more

Judge Extends Restraining Order Halting Implementation Of Proposition B

first_img Andrew Schneider/Houston Public MediaHFD vehicles parked at Houston City Hall.The restraining order that is halting the implementation of Proposition B has been extended, KPRC Channel 2 reported Friday.Back in November, voters approved Proposition B, which entails amending the City’s charter to establish pay parity between the Houston police and fire departments.Judge Kristen Brauchle Hawkins decided to extend the restraining order at a hearing held in Houston regarding the ongoing litigation about Prop B.Police Chief Art Acevedo testified that, if Proposition B is upheld, his department will have to slash its workforce in order to help pay the firefighters’ raises.“It’s a range of anywhere from 600 positions that we’d have to eliminate – which will be a combination of cadets, probationary police officers, and officers already off probation – all the way up to 800. So it’ll be pretty devastating.”District Court Judge Randy Wilson will rule on whether to lift the injunction or make it permanent.

Following Defeat Baker Graciously Concedes to Jealous

first_imgBy James Wright, Special to the AFRO, jwright@afro.comPrince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker III lost to former NAACP president Ben Jealous to secure the Democratic nomination to challenge Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) in the November 6 general election.Baker received 29 percent of the vote while Jealous had 39 percent. Baker was gracious in his concession to Jealous.Rushern Baker III is the outgoing county executive for Prince George’s County. (Courtesy Photo)“I congratulate Mr. Jealous on a hard fought campaign,” Baker said with 70 people at the College Park Marriott & Convention Center in College Park, Md., on June 26. “It is important that a Democrat win the governorship.”Baker thanked his supporters and campaign staff as well as members of his family. He promised that he would work hard to make the transition for the next county executive smooth.Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Angela Alsobrooks won the Democratic nomination to replace Baker.Baker is the second African American politician from Prince George’s County to seek the Democratic nomination for governor, with U.S. Rep. Anthony Brown (D-Md.) as the first in 2014.Hogan ran unopposed in his bid for a second term.Baker served in the Maryland General Assembly as a member of the House of Delegates representing district 22B in Prince George’s County from 1994-2003. He was a candidate for Prince George’s County Executive in 2002 and 2006 but came up short.Baker was elected to the county executive in 2010 and was re-elected in 2014.Baker had the support of many so-called establishment politicians during the primary campaign such as U.S. Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), U.S. House of Representatives Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) and Montgomery County Executive Isaiah Leggett (D). He has been credited for the economic revival of Prince George’s County with projects at the New Carrollton Metro Station and Westphalia along with additions such as MGM Grand that is near the National Harbor.However, the ongoing troubles with the county’s school system have been blamed on Baker because of his decision to stand by the now departed CEO Dr. Kevin Maxwell.last_img read more

Mexicos first catamaran marine drone to help with studies

first_imgA marine drone named Circe has been developed to help with studies in the National Park of Cabo Pulmo of Baja California Sur. Circe, who is a 14-foot catamaran, is equipped with oceanographic instruments, underwater cameras and autonomous navigation equipment.The La Paz Unit of CICESE has developed the 4.3 meter long catamaran to help with water and coastal studies in areas such as reefs and other protected natural areas.The development, first of its kind in Mexico, belongs the Laboratorio de sensores remotos and vehículos autónomos no tripulados of the ULP, headed by Dr. Armando Trasviña Castro. He says on May 25, they had their first navigation test with excellent results.“The director of the National Park of the Revillagigedo Islands was also here…and he is very interested in letting us go to Socorro Island. We have a collaboration started with the National Park of Isla Espiritu Santo.“The truth is that without looking very hard, we already have considerable interest from four organizations, three from the National Commission of Natural Protected Areas of Semarnat, and one from Inegi,” he explained.Most of the development they are doing is under the guidance of engineer Agustín Payen, an external consultant who has worked with them since they started using drones.The cost of the equipped catamaran is 1.5 million peso. The floating device is outfitted with equipment and instruments such as a CTD probe that will allow researchers to measure conductivity (salinity), temperature and pressure (depth) of seawater.A Doppler acoustic current profiler is also part of the device, which allows them to measure the speed of currents at different depths. The high-profile catamaran also includes a MIDAS echo sounder manufactured by Valeport that will be used to perform high resolution bathymetries, and submersible GoPro-type cameras as well as an electric marine motor and drivers for automatic movement.According to Armando Trasviña, for now, Circe can roam for about two hours, however, they are looking into adding a solar panel to increase it’s power time. As for the range of navigation, he says it can easily go 15 kilometers from base.In 2017, the team completed a coastal study using aerial drones and mosaics of geo-referenced photographs for the first time, generating digital elevation models. That study allowed them to understand the reason behind beach sand ending up back in the sea at Cabo Pulmo.The new study that will involve Circe will be done using underwater photography and the same models to quantify the sand of these underwater dunes. Armando Trasviña said he was very satisfied with the behavior of Circe during their May 25 test and is confident that in July, new studies could begin in Cabo Pulmo.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more
