Brandi Morin APTN National News The chief of the Papaschase band in Edmonton said it’s time Alberta looked into whether there are bodies buried at the former Charles Camsell Indian Hospital site.“I’ve been looking into this for years,” said Chief Calvin Bruneau. “The province needs to investigate and do archaeological testing.”The segregated hospital was set up in Edmonton in the late 1940s to treat First Nations, Metis and Inuit patients mainly as a sanatorium for tuberculosis (TB). Those infected with the deadly disease were brought in fromacross the prairies and the NWT. Many times they never made it back home again.Bruneau believes there’s a possible burial site of unmarked graves located on the southeast corner of the hospital property. And the province should split the costs with the federal government to pay for the costs of looking into it. Several of his band members and relatives were treated at the hospital.“The governments should foot the bill and deal with it properly. There should be elders and spiritual people involved too. We need to look at the circumstances as to why people were buried there and provide answers to families. These could be their long lost relatives,” said Bruneau.Over the years rumours have swirled about abuse, sterilization, experiments, and shock treatments that took place there.“We do know that there was experiments going on at the hospital and people died under dubious circumstances, not just TB,” said Bruneau.Two years ago Bruneau met with a representative from the Alberta Ministry of Culture and Tourism to talk about his concerns. He said they reviewed old newspaper clippings and other archival documents to look for evidence of burial sites at the hospital grounds. Nothing was found. But Bruneau thinks the burials were most likely undocumented.A government official told APTN that the hospital had an agreement with the St. Albert’s residential school to use its graveyard. And the hospital site didn’t offer any evidence of graves.This isn’t the first time Bruneau has dealt with finding of the remains of his ancestors.In 2001, the city of Edmonton unearthed a burial ground of Papaschase descendants during a bridge reconstruction. The city and province worked with band members to establish a memorial in the area and to redirect construction of the bridge.Bruneau has reached out to the new owners of the property, one of which is developer and architect Gene Dub who bought it from the province in 2004.Dub and his partners bought the property for $3.6 million but ended up spending $5 million more after having to remove asbestos from inside the building. The original Indian hospital was torn down in the late ’60s and a new hospital was constructed on the property and made public until it deteriorated and closed in 1996.Now it’s being turned into an apartment complex.Since the 13 years of purchasing the property Dub has become acquainted with the history of the Indian hospital that once stood there.“When we purchased the building we weren’t aware of the history, the provincial government just put it up as is…regarding the history I’ve certainly read a lot about it and am familiar with it now,” said Dub.Dub said he hasn’t found any evidence of a graveyard on site, but is taking the necessary precautions just in case.“We’ve sent a letter to the city that said we will stop working immediately if we come across a bone or something. If there was a place that people were buried it would be where the building is located now. We have informed any person working on the site that comes across any bones that might appear to be a grave to stop,” said Dub.But the hospital site is rumoured to be one of the most haunted buildings in Alberta.“I think most of that kind of haunting is not Aboriginal spiritual haunting- it’s public haunting. People are not even aware that this is not the building that Aboriginal’s were housed. Usually it’s kids breaking in. Most of the haunted rumours have nothing to do with Aboriginals, they’re just media hype,” said Dub.But they did bring an Indigenous elder in to bless the four corners of the property- just in case.“The idea was that there was some bad spirits in the building. That’s why we approached the chief to conduct ceremonies,” explained Dub.Some patients who died were buried in a cemetery in the Enoch Cree Nation and Winterburn area west of Edmonton. Other bodies were taken to the Edmonton Indian Residential School 20 km northwest of the city.George Muldoe remembers being asked to bury someone brought there from the hospital while attending residential school when he was just 11 years old in the 1950s.“It was- we had no choice, we had to do it,” said Muldoe. “They’d give you a pick and a shovel and that was it.”There is a memorial at the former school grounds recognizing a mass burial site. But Muldoe said there are more unmarked graves littered all over the area. The hospital used the school yard as its dumping grounds.“There was never a preacher, nobody. No family. Just a truck would drop a body off right on the ground and leave,” said Muldoe.Along with the abuses, he faced at residential school Muldoe said the experience with the graves have haunted him for over 30 years. When he swore an affidavit about his experiences during the residential school compensation process, he said his claims weren’t taken seriously.“The church, Canada and some authors keep calling me a liar,” and he wasn’t the only one who dug graves and buried the dead there. Some of his old classmates had to do the deed as well, he said.For many the hospital was a place of isolation and loneliness.Dub said had he known the history of the property he would’ve never got involved with it.“I think the government should’ve dealt with it. I think they should’ve done something with the project…that would help the Aboriginal cause. We’re scrambling just to keep ahead for us to- the government should’ve given the building to Aboriginals,” said Dub.They are still awaiting additional financing and the final permit from the city to move ahead. Plans to dedicate a memorial in the northeast corner on an acre of the property recognizing the experiences of the Indian hospital are in the works.But Bruneau wants to see more than a memorial. He wants answers.Pamela Mayne Correia, curator in the department of Anthropology at the University of Alberta said there’s no miracle way of finding out if there are graves there other than to start digging.“There is ground penetrating radar or you can dig down physically to find a grave,” she said, “You won’t know for sure unless you do that.”With the findings of mass burial sites discovered at various residential school locations across the country that remained hidden for years after, Bruneau said the same atrocities probably happened at places like the Charles Camsell Indian Hospital.“I would like to see it (grave) found and then figure out how to deal with it,” said Bruneau.Restitution is needed, he continued, especially because both the federal and provincial governments are championing reconciliation and nation to nation building relationships.“There has to be some kind of restitution,” he firstname.lastname@example.org
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Saudi Arabia’s King Salman has replaced the country’s energy minister with one of his own sons, naming Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman to one of the most important positions in the kingdom.Khalid al-Falih was replaced as energy minister just days after losing his position as board chairman of the state-owned oil giant Aramco. Al-Falih also saw his portfolio diminished last week when a new ministry of mining and industry was created, removing that sector from the purview of the energy ministry.New Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz is an older half-brother to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and formerly minister of state of energy affairs. The two brothers are not believed to be close.The change was announced early Sunday in a royal decree published by the state-run Saudi Press Agency.The Associated Press
The rival Lendu clan offered little resistance and the UN Organization Mission in the DRC, which is patrolling the town, reported low casualties, UN spokesman Fred Eckhard said in New York. “The UN Deputy Force Commander, Brig. Gen. Roberto Martinelli of Italy, negotiated the withdrawal of the two forces, and the situation remained stable until this morning,” Mr. Eckhard, said adding that in a brief but violent clash on Saturday, “at least 12 people were killed, including three babies, at the home of a leading Hema political figure.”The town of Bunia, in the volatile, gold-rich Ituri Province, has been the scene of bloody violence for months. The warring Hema and Lendu – vying for control of the town in the wake of the withdrawal of Ugandan troops – have clashed repeatedly over the past two weeks. Last week, fighting between the two groups left five dead, countless others wounded and a number of buildings, including UN offices looted. On Friday, thousands of students and militia stormed the UN Mission’s compound in Bunia, slightly injuring the UN sector commander in a machete attack. The mob was dispersed by UN troops firing shots into the air, but it returned to lay siege to the compound soon after.The Security Council immediately condemned the attacks, and called on all parties to cease aggressions. On Saturday, Secretary-General Kofi Annan issued a statement expressing his alarm at the situation in Bunia, calling on the Government of Uganda to use its influence with the militias to maintain calm and on the international community “to make every effort to quickly address this dire situation.”Between 8,000 and 10,000 internally displaced persons have taken refuge with the UN, most at a compound near the airport. The UN fed those people today and is bringing in fresh water and medicines for them, Mr. Eckhard said.Speaking to the press following consultations earlier today, the Council’s President, Ambassador Munir Akram of Pakistan, said members of the 15-nation body had discussed the “very disturbing” situation in the Ituri region, and particularly in Bunia. “The Council is seized of this very serious matter,” he said, adding that “all options were being explored” and the risks and challenges were being weighed in an effort see how the Council could best respond.
by Dan Healing, The Canadian Press Posted Oct 14, 2016 12:58 pm MDT Last Updated Oct 15, 2016 at 1:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email CALGARY – The federal government is reducing the size of a proposed emergency fund pipeline operators would be required to have on hand to deal with short-term costs of incidents such as spills.Natural Resources Canada says the fund proposed under its new Pipeline Safety Act would bring down the minimum amount of “readily available” money to at least five per cent of a company’s liability from the 10 per cent originally proposed when consultations on the act began more than a year ago.If adopted, regulations would require a large company with capacity to transport at least 250,000 barrels of oil per day to demonstrate it can cover cleanup bills of $1 billion. The “readily available” fund requirement at five per cent would thus be $50 million, versus $100 million at 10 per cent.No such fund was required under previous pipeline rules.The federal department said the reduction, which was published as part of draft regulations last Saturday in the Canada Gazette, would be sufficient based on the costs of previous pipeline spills.It cited the two largest spills in Canada between 2007 and 2014 that cost $137 million and $42 million, respectively, to clean up.But Daniel Cayley-Daoust, an energy and climate campaigner for the Council of Canadians, says the department should also consider damage from spills outside of Canada, pointing out that Calgary-based Enbridge has estimated US$1.2 billion in cleanup costs from its 2010 pipeline oil spill into the Kalamazoo River in Michigan.“We need to take a look at all of the data out there and make sure we have a complete picture,” he said.Program manager Patrick DeRochie of Environmental Defence said in an email the reduction is a “weakening” of financial safeguards for pipeline spill response and “raises questions about the oil industry’s power in Ottawa.”A spokesperson for Natural Resources Canada said it’s not the case that financial safeguards are being weakened because the proposed fund would be in addition to current requirements pipeline companies face.“This is not a reduction in the size of financial requirements,” Danica Vaillancourt said in an email. “In fact, these regulations would impose new financial requirements to ensure pipeline companies are financially prepared to cover the costs related to an incident.”Chris Bloomer, president and chief executive of the Canadian Energy Pipeline Association, said the new pipeline act’s requirement for proof of a company’s financial strength is supported by industry.“The updated percentage more accurately reflects the ready cash required to initiate response, and in no way reduces the ultimate liability of operating companies,” he said in an email.Spokesmen for TransCanada and Enbridge said the large pipeline companies have more than enough financial strength to satisfy the proposed regulations at either percentage.The proposed regulations would require smaller oil pipeline companies to cover an absolute liability of either C$200 million or C$300 million, depending on the size of their pipeline network.The absolute liability limit is the sum for which the pipeline company is responsible regardless of the cause of the incident. It’s designed to ensure cleanup proceeds as quickly as possible without delays caused by wrangling over who will pay for what.The regulations are in a 30-day discussion period. They are expected to be finalized and implemented early next year.Follow @HealingSlowly on Twitter. Federal government reduces size of proposed emergency fund for pipeline spills
As of Friday morning local time, 30 people are confirmed to have died after Hurricane Dorian hit the islands of Abaco and Grand Bahama last weekend with maximum wind speeds of 297 kilometres per hour (185 mph).But the Government says that thousands are still missing after the Category 5 storm brought with it a storm surge of 18 to 23 feet (5.5 to seven metres) and 76,000 people are believed to be homeless, in need of assistance.The extreme level of destruction has been attributed by UN weather experts at the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) to the fact that Dorian “remained stationary, thus exacerbating the impacts of the hazards: wind, rain, waves and storm surge”. In a statement on Friday, UN Migration Agency, IOM, said that “only minimal information” was available from the affected islands and that more detailed assessments of people’s requirements are urgently needed.Flooding and blocked roads blocking people from reaching sheltersAmong its priorities, the agency is providing 1,000 tarpaulins to replace roofs “stripped” from homes by the hurricane.Citing official sources, IOM said that some 449 people are in nine emergency shelters in Abaco, with 346 survivors being temporarily housed in 17 shelters in Grand Bahama. “Many are sheltering in clinics and therefore need to be relocated; thousands more are prevented from reaching the shelters due to flooding and blocked roads,” IOM said.Highlighting the immense challenge ahead for affected Bahamians, the agency noted the need to rebuild destroyed infrastructure, “with increased resistance in the face of extreme weather”, as being key to boosting the resilience of the communities.Treating chronically ill is only one of many prioritiesOther immediate needs include treating people with chronic illnesses, such as those with diabetes and kidney failure, Dr Norton explained.“We now know that the hospital in Freeport which is on Grand Bahama is severely flooded with sewage-contaminated water, and so therefore it needs to be temporarily replaced with a field hospital”, he said.Amid reports that many other medical centres are flooded, international health teams are arriving in the Bahamas to provide clinical care and help survivor to secure food supplies, safe drinking water and sanitation.“I can’t tell you that we’ve got to every single atoll and sand key, but certainly the major sections of each island have been reached”, said Dr. Norton. “We’ve certainly seen reports more and more on the health side, that they’re looking at shelter, food and trying to assess what populations are left where.” Echoing that message, Dr. Esther de Gourville, representative of the Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) in the Bahamas, insisted that staff would use their extensive experience in emergency preparedness to improve disaster relief operations.“Clearly it is a desperate situation for some persons on Abaco,” she said.Find out more about the UN ‘s international emergency response team, by listening to this episode of our flagship podcast, The Lid Is On… “We certainly expect the death toll to rise, I can’t tell you what that would be, but we’re really worried about it,” Dr. Ian Norton, Manager of the World Health (WHO) Emergency Medical Teams Initiative, told journalists in Geneva.In the eye of the storm, you either drown, or survive“What we’ve seen unfortunately in this devastating storm surge – especially in a stationary storm – (it) produces what you would see maybe after a tsunami”, Dr. Norton added. “And what we don’t see in those cases is injuries as such, we see unfortunately a lot of people drowned and losing their lives – drowning or surviving.”“We certainly expect the death toll to rise; I can’t tell you what that would be, but we’re really worried about it.” Dr Ian Norton, Manager of Emergency Medical Teams, @WHO Geneva, provided the latest updates on #hurricanedorian to the media today ⬇️ pic.twitter.com/6p6Ux1l4eu— UN Geneva (@UNGeneva) September 6, 2019

However, State Prosecutor, Tuanna Hardy maintained that the killing was a senseless act.After some deliberation the judge passed down his 15 year sentence to each man, pending deductions for time served already. 21-year-old Abdool RazackThe sentence brought about loud grumbles by relatives of the dead man. They told media operatives that the verdict did not give them justice for their lost loved ones. Latchman’s mother, Taramattie Dabie, who was in a state of disrepair, tearfully cried out “this is not justice!”“Ow God, this is not justice. Meh beg yuh. This is unfair!,” she cried out as she was being led out of the court.After she calmed down, the distraught mother said “me nah satisfied. They get fifteen years imprisonment concerning meh son. Them tek meh son from my house and cyar him and kill he. Them had meh son life in he hand. They kill him because he know them. Is he own village people. Me nah satisfied. Fifteen years then they gotta cut it down three years. Sunday coming is three years fuhh meh son since he get murder.”The mother also noted that she will be appealing the case. “Me guh review back the case. I will do it. I don’t care what ever it cost me, I will. If I got to guh thief, beg or borrow or whatever me gotta go do, do wrong thing fuh get money, I will because I need justice.”Murdered: Dhanraj LatchmanMeanwhile, as Razack was being led to the holding cell in shackles, he told media operatives that he felt the verdict was unfair. He maintained that he did not murder Latchman, and had only pleaded guilty to “tek a chance.”“…I never kill no one…When yuh don’t plead guilty and when you aint do ah act, you know the judge does still find you guilty or not guilty so that’s why I tek the chance.”In June of 2014, the two men reportedly hired Latchman- who was a taxi driver- to transport them to Lusignan. However, their intentions were to reportedly steal the teen’s car. As such, after arriving at their location, the two reportedly strangled Latchman to death with the seatbelt then dumped his body and made arrangements to sell his motor vehicle.They were arrested after they gave conflicting stories to police. They later confessed to the gruesome act. (Ramona Luthi)
Immersive Technologies says it has furthered its commitment to the mining industry with the development of simulators (Conversion Kit) for underground coal mining. Simulators include those for continuous miners, shuttle cars, roof bolters, longwalls and miner bolters. “These products feature a previously unseen degree of simulation realism and Immersive Technologies’ ingenious new RealMove natural movement system. Bolstered with a demonstrated capability to deliver quantified improvements in cost savings, productivity and safety; Immersive Technologies offers a degree of training effectiveness not previously available to underground coal mining operations.”“Until now, there has been no training solution on the market which fully addresses the unique training requirements for underground coal equipment operators. These new products highlight our ongoing approach to invest in driving customer safety and profitability though our industry leading technology and extensive mining experience,” said Richard Beesley, Underground Coal Business Unit Manager. The simulators provide an authentic and comprehensive recreation of an underground coal mining work environment and support the following models with plans to continually develop new machines:JOY 14CM15 continuous miner with wireless TX2 or TX3 remoteJOY 10SC32 shuttle carFletcher CHDDR roof bolterCaterpillar EL3000 longwallJOY 12CM30 miner bolterImmersive Technologies has also firmly extended its Complete and Scalable Solution for operator workforce development into the underground coal mining industry. Beesley, an experienced roof bolter operator, says: “The expanded product line is the result of intense research and development drawing from original equipment manufacturers, industry best practices, subject matter experts and safety requirements specific to the underground coal mining industry.”The innovation continues with the development of the world’s first RealMove natural movement system, through this technology the operator can naturally walk around the 3D virtual environment to avoid hazards or to perform a full walk around of the machine. This is a key feature for remote machine operators where awareness of ones surroundings can be the difference between life and death. “The ability to train operators to react correctly during potentially life threatening situations is invaluable in underground mining. Many dangerous situations rarely take place so training operators to understand proper protocol in a safe environment is essential for underground operations,” Beesley says.The new machines operate on the CM360 Advanced Equipment Simulator. This platform was built upon the proven design and configuration of the Immersive Technologies UG360 Advanced Equipment Simulator. The CM360 utilises the full 360 degree visual experience recognising the distinct operating conditions of the underground mining environment. It features an entirely removable motion platform to permit both seated and remote operated simulation from within the one platform. The company states: “Particular care and attention to detail has been put into the visuals for these machines, setting new standards in 3D graphical machine models for mining simulations. RealMove along with the unparalleled degree of simulation realism allows operators to train at a level of detail the underground mining industry hasn’t seen before. Small details are critical to proper operations and we are excited to unveil these advancements in underground coal mining training. The company is to embark on a roadshow in popular coal mining regions to showcase the new developments.”
Short URL Ian Bailey Source: RollingNews.ieAN APPLICATION TO endorse a European arrest warrant for Ian Bailey for the alleged voluntary homicide of Sophie Toscan du Plantier will be heard at the High Court tomorrow.Mr Bailey (61) denies any involvement in the French woman’s death.Justice Tony Hunt adjourned the hearing when Bailey’s legal team did not appear in court for the 10am hearing. Ronan Kennedy BL, counsel for the attorney general, said that Bailey’s solicitor was served notice of the High Court hearing on 16 March, four days ago.He said that Bailey’s solicitor was told that the hearing could go ahead without him or his legal representatives but that any submissions they want to make on the European arrest warrant should be made to the court.Kennedy added: “In light of the correspondence I am surprised there is not anyone in attendance in the court.”Justice Hunt said Bailey and his legal representatives are “on notice” that the hearing will proceed tomorrow.French authorities have already served Ian Bailey with an indictment and want him to face trial in France for the alleged voluntary homicide of Toscan du Plantier, who was found beaten to death outside her holiday home in Schull, west Cork, in December 1996.This is the second time the French authorities have tried to bring Bailey to France to face a charge in relation to her death. In 2012 the Supreme Court ruled against an endorsement of a European arrest warrant to have Bailey sent to France to face a murder charge.It is not unusual for the French authorities to prosecute a person for crimes committed against French citizens outside of France. The French authorities could also try Bailey in his absence.Bailey has denied all links to the death of Toscan du Plantier and alleges a garda conspiracy to frame him for her killing.Comments are disabled as legal proceedings are ongoingRead: Man to appear in court this morning in connection with fatal Artane stabbingRead: Jail for IRA man caught with half-tonne of fertiliser in van as he headed to ‘drinking session’ By eoin Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article https://jrnl.ie/3297073 20,547 Views Mar 20th 2017, 1:37 PM Share2 Tweet Email No Comments Monday 20 Mar 2017, 1:37 PM Ian Bailey fails to show up for hearing regarding arrest warrant The application to endorse a European arrest warrant for Bailey for the alleged voluntary homicide of Sophie Toscan du Plantier will now be heard tomorrow.

La Wii U couteraît 180$ à NintendoPrévue pour 2012, les rumeurs sur le prix de vente de la Wii U commencent à affluer. Aujourd’hui, ce sont les coûts de production qui nous intéressent.Selon des sources anonymes (lien non disponible), la console reviendrait donc au prix de 180 dollars pour le géant japonais du jeu vidéo, incluant pièces et autres processeurs électroniques. La manette (tablette) en représenterait, rien qu’à elle, 50 dollars. À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Ce prix, relativement peu élevé, confirmerait donc les rumeurs sur la console, qui ne serait pas plus puissante qu’une PS3 ou une Xbox 360 actuelle. Cela pourrait se confirmer, Nintendo avait déjà privilégié le gameplay plutôt que la puissance avec la Wii. Avec la Wii U, il y aurait donc rebelote.Cependant, à 180 $ la console, n’allez pas croire que ce sera le prix que vous la paierez dans le commerce. Il faudra évidemment rajouter quelques deniers pour le budget dédié au marketing,le packaging et les taxes en tous genres…qui feront facilement grimper le prix aux alentours de 299 euros sur notre marché.Le 10 avril 2012 à 18:45 • Maxime Lambert
Stay on target These Razer Cases Will Keep Your iPhone 11 Cool While GamingKeto Turns Your Smartphone Into Your Car Keys Not every OEM is trying to figure out how to reduce the number openings in a smartphone. There’s one that is proudly adding more in the name of gaming performance.Nubia isn’t exactly a household name, which is precisely why they can try some crazy things. Crazy things like cutting vents into the back of the new Red Magic 3 and jamming a cooling fan inside it.Engadget reports that the fan can spin up to 14,000rpm and has a mean time between failures of 30,000 hours. That’s roughly three and a half years of continuous kicked-up cooling.It’s only part of the equation, naturally. There’s also a heat pipe to keep temperatures in the Red Magic 3 under control. Nubia claims that their cooling config is five times more effective than its competitors’ passive setups.What else did Nubia put inside the Red Magic 3? It’s powered by the same Snapdragon 855 chipset that Samsung uses in the U.S version of the Galaxy S10. Nubia offers two configurations, one with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage and the other with 12GB and 256GB.The internal fan isn’t the only noteworthy feature of this phone. It also boasts a camera that’s capable of recording 8K video and super slow-mo at up to 1,920FPS.Photo Credit: NubiaThe Red Magic 3 also boasts a 6.65-inch display with a 90Hz refresh rate. That’s not quite on par with Razer’s UltraMotion displays, but it’s better than most smartphones.If you’re serious enough about smartphone gaming to buy a phone with a fan in it, then you’re probably also serious enough to want one with an Ethernet connection. The Red Magic 3 has one, though thankfully it’s part of a dock (which also adds an audio line out and USB-C port).Nubia is planning to bring the Red Magic 3 to North America. The lower-end version should sell for around $430. The fully-loaded one will cost you $210 more. As for the dock, it’s just $30.More on Geek.com:Watch: Scientists Drop Smartphone Into Blender to Analyze Its ContentsThe Battery in This Phone Is Five Times Bigger Than YoursThe Samsung Galaxy A80 Has a Camera That Does Backflips
No big-box stores.http://portcw.com/index.php/projects/waterfront_revitalization/Make it a destination, not a forgettable dot on a map.And weave it into the existing downtowns, streetscapes and trails of Washougal and Camas.Those were just some of the desires east Clark County residents expressed during a recent public workshop held by the Port of Camas-Washougal to discuss the future of about 40 acres of waterfront property in Washougal, including how to redevelop the 25-acre former Hambleton Lumber Co. mill.“It could help or it could draw away” from the commercial districts of Camas and Washougal, Karen Hall, owner of the historic Camas Hotel, said of the port’s effort to transform the site.While the port is considering its options, including purchasing part of the Hambleton parcel, no decisions have been made.The challenge, said Hall, also a member of the Downtown Camas Association, is to design a project that complements the communities of both Camas and Washougal.Planning continuesHall was among more than 30 people who turned out for last Wednesday’s informal, free-flowing discussion inside the Camas-Washougal Municipal Court Building, where coffee and cookies were served.The workshop was the port’s latest step in planning to revitalize a key waterfront area. More meetings are in the offing, and the port has created a page on its website to regularly update the public on the planning process.
When the owners of Portland-based Laurelwood Public House & Brewery decided to sell their popular Battle Ground location, Eric and Paula Starr saw an opportunity to fulfill a dream of owning their own business.Monday, the Starrs will take ownership of the Laurelwood building, in Battle Ground Village at 1401 S.E. Rasmussen Blvd. After a Monday-Tuesday closure to prepare for their business launch, Eric and Paula Starr will open Northwood Public House & Brewery, with the same employees as its predecessor. The Starrs will initially keep Laurelwood’s food menu with few changes, and they’ll continue to offer Laurelwood brews.Laurelwood has been “a thriving and vital part of the Battle Ground community and we want to maintain their goodwill and momentum,” Eric Starr said.Laurelwood co-owner Mike De Kalb, who grew up in Hockinson and attended Battle Ground High School, said he decided to sell the Battle Ground site to focus on Laurelwood’s growing brewing business and its five brewpub locations in Portland.“We’re trying to focus on our beer business and promoting our beer brand in Oregon and Washington and eventually Idaho and Northern California,” he said. “We get calls weekly and monthly from people wanting to buy a Laurelwood or wanting us to open one. We finally decided to look at one of those offers.” De Kalb, who owns Laurelwood with his wife, Cathy Woo-De Kalb, added that he is sad to be leaving the town where he spent his youth.
The United States will officially withdraw from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty on Friday, clearing the way for a new arms race with Russia — and throwing China into the mix. The treaty — concluded by then US president Ronald Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev in 1987 — limited the Cold War powers’ medium-range missiles, both conventional and nuclear.

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed into law a bill suspending Moscow’s participation on July 3. Unless something changes in the coming days, the mutual withdrawal will spell the end of the deal, which eliminated a range of missiles with ranges of 500 to 5,500 kilometers (310-3,420 miles). Advertise With Us That paved the way for the mothballing of Russian SS-20 missiles and American Pershing missiles deployed in Europe. Even if European nations have expressed concerns about the consequence of a new arms race, NATO endorsed the US position, saying Russia’s 9M729 missile had violated the INF agreement. Moscow insists the new projectile has a maximum range of 480 kilometers — within INF parameters. In the end, the death of the INF Treaty suits Washington just fine, as former defense secretary Ash Carter said in early July. “From the military point of view, not the political point of view, it’s not so bad,” Carter said at a conference at the Council on Foreign Relations. “We can make good use of what we call conventional prompt strike.” Next-generation technology The Pentagon is thrilled that it will now be able to modernize its arsenal to counter the mounting might of China, which is looking to assert its military supremacy in Asia. “Most of China’s inventory is of intermediate range missiles and so we need to make sure we have the capability as well to respond should we — God forbid — get in a fight with them one day,” Esper said. The United States has pledged not to deploy new nuclear-armed missiles in Europe, but made no such promise on the deployment of conventional weapons. Advances in technology have allowed for the development of mid-range missiles that are much more precise than those made 30 years ago, explained career diplomat William Courtney, who is now a senior fellow at the nonprofit, nonpartisan Rand Corporation. “The technology has changed so much that is makes it militarily attractive,” said Courtney, an arms control expert. For Thomas Mahnken, a professor of strategic studies at Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies, the US must now deploy medium-range conventional weapons on its islands in the Pacific and other territory controlled by its allies. Such a move would help counter China’s rise, especially in the South China Sea, where the People’s Liberation Army has effectively commandeered several disputed islands. “It is time to turn the tables,” Mahnken said in a commentary published on the specialist website War on the Rocks. “Such weapons, capable of denying China the use of littoral waters, would be a powerful deterrent to Chinese aggression.” Such a move seems to have the support of the next chairman of the US joint chiefs of staff, General Mark Milley. When asked by US senators about the imminent demise of the INF Treaty, he said he supported the deployment of conventional ground-based medium-range missiles in the Indo-Pacific region. “Do you think those would be helpful?” one senator asked. “I do,” Milley replied.
NASA SOHO/ ET DATA BASESolar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) project is one of the most ambitious missions of NASA, and through this program, the United States space agency aims to study the internal structure and outer atmosphere of the sun. Now, Scott C Waring, a prominent alien hunter has sensationally claimed that the SOHO has made its most crucial discovery till date. Waring, who is now based in Taiwan revealed that SOHO has captured the footage of a gigantic UFO exiting the sun.In the picture shared by Scott C Waring on his website ET Data Base, a saucer-shaped flying object can be seen on the star’s left side. Interestingly, the unexpected anomaly in the footage appears only for a fraction of a second, and Waring has slowed down the entire clip to disclose the bizarre UFO that appeared near to the sun.In his recent web post, Waring argued that the mysterious UFO is basically an advanced alien spaceship, and its size is more than that of Jupiter.”I found this angelic UFO exiting our sun this week. The UFO came out right after a giant explosion happened. The UFO itself is huge compared to our sun. The angelic UFO is close to the size of Jupiter. This has to be one of the largest UFOs ever recorded exiting our sun. It moves really fast because just a few minutes later, the photo of the same area shows it no longer there. Nothing that big could move that fast unless it has the ability to travel at light speed. That’s my friends, is an alien craft,” wrote Waring on his website.Several conspiracy theorists have long been alleging that the sun is a hollow star, and aliens are using this gigantic cosmic entity to harvest energy. As the new finding made by Waring has now gone viral, conspiracy theorists believe that their speculations were right, and they claim that space agencies like NASA are intentionally have covered up several sinister details in the past.After watching the video uploaded to YouTube by Waring, many viewers also shared their thoughts regarding this bizarre sighting.”Great find Scott. Is the sun a portal or some sort of fuelling station for ufo’s?” commented Thomas JM Mundt, a YouTube user.”It looks to be a ship or craft!! I can never get a handle on the size of these things near our sun!! They are larger than our planet, does it have millions of people on it or is there a couple really large beings in there!! Disclosure is happening as there are segments on mainstream news now! ABOUT TIME!! Thanks, Scott for staying busy and sharing!! This is pretty obvious in this clip that we aren’t alone! Thanks again,” commented Curtis Hill, another YouTuber.
US Attorney General Jeff Sessions testifies before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Capitol Hill 13 June 2017 in Washington, DC. Photo: AFPUS Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Tuesday vehemently denied any collusion with Russia to tilt last year’s election in Donald Trump’s favor, branding the suggestion an “appalling and detestable lie.”In closely-watched congressional testimony, Sessions angrily denounced allegations he acted improperly during meetings with Russian officials—or that he knew of any attempt at collusion by members of the Trump campaign team.And he repeatedly refused to reveal whether he had spoken to the president regarding James Comey’s handling of the probe into Russian election meddling—which the former FBI director believes to be the reason he was fired.A Trump loyalist and early backer of the billionaire businessman’s presidential bid, the 70-year-old Sessions has recused himself from all ongoing Russia investigations.But the nation’s top law enforcement official—who recommended Comey’s dismissal last month—has himself become a focal point in the crisis roiling the White House.Sessions kicked off his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee by asserting that he had “never met with or had any conversations with any Russians” about interference in the 2016 presidential race.“I have no knowledge of any such conversations by anyone connected to the Trump campaign,” he said. “The suggestion that I participated with any collusion, that I was aware of any collusion with the Russian government to hurt this country… is an appalling and detestable lie.”The appearance was Sessions’s first sworn public testimony since being confirmed as attorney general in February.During the two-and-a-half hour hearing, he engaged in testy exchanges with several senators who pressed him for details on his discussions with Trump—which he refused to provide in the name of confidentiality.Some Democrats grew impatient, warning Sessions was stonewalling on vital issues.“You are obstructing that congressional investigation by not answering that question,” charged Senator Martin Heinrich. “Your silence… speaks volumes.”Sessions responded: “I am not stonewalling. I am following the historic policies of the Department of Justice.”‘Innuendo’Testifying last week before the same committee, Comey recalled that Trump had asked him to “let go” of a probe into onetime national security advisor Michael Flynn—exposing the president to accusations of obstruction of justice, a potentially impeachable offense.Flynn was sacked two weeks into the job amid concerns he lied over his Russian contacts, becoming the first high-profile victim of the scandal that has overshadowed Trump’s young presidency.Trump has recently expressed frustration with Sessions, who has come under pressure over his own Russia contacts.While the Justice Department has said Sessions recused himself in March because of his involvement in Trump’s campaign, Comey testified that the FBI knew of information that would have made it “problematic” for Sessions to be involved.But the attorney general pushed back hard when asked what those problematic matters could be, retorting: “There are none. I can tell you that for absolute certainty.“This is a secret innuendo being leaked out there about me, and I don’t appreciate it,” he added.‘No knowledge’ of Russia probeBarely a month after Trump dismissed Comey, rumors have been circulating that he may yet seek to sack Robert Mueller, the special counsel appointed following the FBI chief’s ouster to head the agency’s Russia investigation.Sessions declined to comment on those reports, stating only that he had “confidence” in Mueller and would not be involved in any effort, should it arise, to fire the special counsel.Following the hearing, a White House spokeswoman said Trump “has no intention” of dismissing Mueller.Sessions added that since his recusal, “I have no knowledge about this investigation” beyond media reports.Addressing allegations that he had unreported meetings with Russian officials while he advised the Trump campaign, Sessions said he had already acknowledged two encounters last year with Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.But he denied any substantive discussion with Kislyak at a third encounter, at an April 27, 2016 reception for Trump at Washington’s Mayflower Hotel.Sessions also pushed back against Comey’s suggestion he may have failed to take appropriate steps to protect the FBI chief from political pressure.At the conclusion of a February 14 meeting, the sacked FBI chief testified, Trump urged everyone but Comey to leave the Oval Office, including Sessions. Comey said the president then leaned on him to halt the Flynn investigation.Sessions said he learned from Comey that he felt concerned about being left alone with the president but that, since Comey did not relay details of the conversation, he had no way of knowing it was improper.Tuesday’s hearing was followed by predictably partisan reaction from Republicans and rival Democrats.“With no evidence of collusion, wrongdoing, or obstruction of justice by President Trump or the White House, how much longer is this going to go on,” said Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel, praising Sessions’s “honesty and professionalism”.However Democrat Congressman Jim Langevin said Sessions fell short of the standard of evidence required at such a hearing.“The Attorney General’s testimony this afternoon was unsubstantial, unresponsive, and unacceptable. Mr Sessions—like every government employee—has an obligation to answer to the oversight of Congress. He failed that obligation and his oath to the Constitution with his stonewalling of senators.”
Prime minister Sheikh Hasina (L) and Chinese president Xi Jinping. UNB File PhotoBangladesh and China plan to take their ‘strategic partnership’ to a new height when prime minister Sheikh Hasina visits the country next month.Beijing has invited prime minister Hasina to pay an official visit from 1-5 July, a senior official in Dhaka told UNB, saying that both sides are finalising things for the important visit.The Chinese government also invited the prime minister to attend annual meeting of the “New Champions” which is known as “Summer Davos” to be held in Dalian on 1-3 July.It will be Sheikh Hasina’s first bilateral visit to Beijing following her party’s overwhelming victory in the last parliamentary election, held on 30 December 2018.She will have meetings with president Xi and prime minister Li Keqiang and discuss ways to strengthen cooperation in broader areas. A good number of bilateral documents are likely to be signed during the visit.Prime minister Hasina is expected to have an exclusive meeting on 2 July with the founder and executive chairman of World Economic Forum (WEF) professor Klaus Schwab in Dalian, said an official.She is also expected to be a panellist at a session on Cooperation in the Pacific Rim at the WEF Dalian.Beijing has already placed five specific suggestions for deepening Bangladesh-China strategic partnership of cooperation with an emphasis on intensifying ‘strategic mutual trust’.”First, we need to deepen strategic mutual trust and then we need to deepen economic integration,” Chinese Ambassador to Bangladesh Zhang Zuo said at Cosmos Dialogue recently.Other suggestions put forward by him were to deepen innovation and interaction, have stronger cooperation on experience sharing on security, and deepen cultural and people’s connectivity.He said that China wants to join hands with Bangladesh to become good partners with equality and mutual trust.Summer Davos, themed ‘Leadership 4.0: Succeeding in a New Era of Globalisation’, is bringing together leaders from every sector and every part of the world to discuss how to cooperate on the challenges ahead.Activities have been designed to provide Chinese cultural experiences at the programme in Liaoning Province, according to the city’s authorities responsible for the coordination of the event.The “Dalian Night” will feature performances by well-known performing groups, including folk dances, acrobatics, Peking Opera, ballet and folk music.The event venue and parts of Dalian will be covered with 5G signals, allowing participants to enjoy the convenience brought by 5G services and experience 5G technologies-supported applications like panoramic VR, and 5G plus 4K ultra-high definition television.Globalisation 4.0 represents fundamental changes in the global economy that are reshaping companies, communities and countries at an unprecedented speed and scale.These changes are driven by environmental challenges, regional competition, economic disparities and technological disruption. They, in turn, require different forms of leadership and collaboration adapted to this new era of globalisation.Platform strategies and systems leadership are key business concepts behind the sweeping technological changes propelling the Fourth Industrial Revolution.Leadership 4.0 requires an understanding of how new champions that are gaining economic influence are disrupting and transforming current industry models.WEF engages leaders who have the vision and values to shape the future in this new context.The Annual Meeting of the New Champions is designed as the foremost global summit on innovation and entrepreneurship with more than 1,500 participants, 100 working sessions and community activities, along with the opportunity to engage in several new forum initiatives.
Nintendo’s 3DS isn’t going to be available until March 27th, but if you are worried about the hot new device selling out before you get your hands on one, you can pre-order today.The 3DS is available in two colors (blue and black) from all the usual suspects, so hop on over to Amazon, Target, Game Stop, or Walmart and yoiu can lock one (or more) down. There has been one unsubstantiated hint at a Wii-like shortage, but it was for the Japanese market. It could happen though, especially if Nintendo enjoyed the buzz around the Wii’s scarcity and wants to give it another try this time around.The 3DS is selling for just about $250 every where you look, so don’t expect any discounts. The one seller with a slight advantage seems to be Walmart, who has it priced at $249.00 and includes a free case.The “Bonus Flex Case”, pictured below, doesn’t look very attractive, but it should get the job done.And the links…Amazon – 3DS in aqua blueAmazon – 3DS in blackGameStop – 3DS in blueGameStop – 3DS in blackTarget – 3DS in blueTarget – 3DS in blackWalmart – 3DS with free case
