Calgary not very romantic according to Amazon rankings

first_imgIt appears Calgarians just aren’t as romantic anymore according to Amazon. The online retailer tracks sales of romance novels, relationship help books, romantic movies, jewellery and other adult-themed products for cities of over 80,000 people, then ranks them on a per capita basis. Calgary didn’t even make the list of top 20 Canadian cities despite landing in 10th last year and sixth in 2016. Victoria, B.C. made the top of the list for a sixth consecutive year followed by Abbotsford and Whitehorse. Fort McMurray was the top rated city in Alberta at fifth, while Spruce Grove, Sherwood Park, Grand Prairie, and Airdrie also made the cut.last_img read more

Weirdest thing Trump expresses anger but not over Russian electionmeddling

first_imgWASHINGTON, United States of America – A curious thing has unfolded since the release of details about a Russian campaign to interfere in U.S. politics, with a secretive unit that allegedly had 80 employees, a $1.2 million-a-month budget, and impersonated real Americans by stealing their personal information.It involves the reaction of the president of the United States.Since an indictment sheet revealed these details Friday, Donald Trump has tweeted about it at least 14 times. He’s blamed the FBI and the news media. He’s scolded his national-security advisor. He’s even used the Florida school shooting to argue that he’s being wronged.One thing he hasn’t done: Voice displeasure with Russia.His reaction stands in sharp contrast with some members of his own party who sound disturbed by this alleged Russian election interference. It has Democrats questioning his motives. He’s being condemned by survivors of the Florida shooting.It has also drawn news headlines like, “We’ve Just Hit A New Presidential Low,” from the Washington Post, “Trump blames everyone but Russia,” from CNN, and “Trump Quiet In A U.S. War On Meddling,” on the front page of Sunday’s New York Times.Trump’s first tweet after Friday’s indictments was enthusiastic — he claimed his own exoneration. That’s because the charge sheet said some Americans who interacted with the Russian information campaign did so unwittingly, and a senior Justice Department official added that there was no evidence this unit’s work swayed the 2016 election result.By Saturday evening, he expressed frustration.Trump tweeted about the school shooting that left 17 people dead, and linked it to his own plight: “Very sad that the FBI missed all of the many signals sent out by the Florida school shooter. This is not acceptable. They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign — there is no collusion. Get back to the basics.”Then came a gusher of tweets Sunday morning.He chided his top national-security official, H.R. McMaster, who this weekend said it’s now “incontrovertible” that Russia interfered in the election: “General McMaster forgot to say that the results of the 2016 election were not impacted or changed by the Russians,” Trump said.He insisted he never called Russian election-meddling a hoax: “I said ‘it may be Russia, or China or another country or group, or it may be a 400 pound genius sitting in bed and playing with his computer.’”Some people find his reaction abnormal.On ABC, his former campaign ally, Chris Christie, said: “The president should be staying out of law-enforcement business.” On NBC, Sen. James Lankford was asked whether the president’s reaction bothers him: “It does,” Lankford replied. “Because Russia’s clearly tried to advance their agenda into the United States.”Some students who survived the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., expressed bewilderment, including Aly Sheehy who tweeted: “17 of my classmates are gone. That’s 17 futures, 17 children, and 17 friends stolen. But you’re right, it always has to be about you. How silly of me to forget.”The president’s reaction was in stark contrast with another politician who allegedly benefited from Russian information campaigns.Sen. Bernie Sanders was also mentioned in the indictment sheet.Special counsel Robert Mueller alleges that a Russian operation called, “The Translator Project,” had instructions to go after all sorts of American politicians, Democrats and Republicans, to sow discord in the U.S. — with two exceptions: Trump and Sanders.Sanders sounded like he was taking it seriously.He acknowledged, in an interview on “Meet The Press,” that when his Democratic primary campaign appeared lost, Russians flooded Facebook pages to spread negative messages about the eventual nominee, Hillary Clinton. He said a member of his team even reached out to Clinton’s campaign to opine that something weird was happening.Sanders said it’s imperative American leaders confront Russia about this.“What we have to say to the Russians (is), ‘You are doing something to undermine American democracy; you are not going to get away with it. This is a major assault. If you do that there will be severe consequences.’”He questioned the president’s own approach. While Trump has closed some Russian diplomatic buildings in the U.S. in a diplomatic tit-for-tat, he has also been reluctant to enforce sanctions, avoided criticizing Russia, and has even said he believes Vladimir Putin when he claims Russia didn’t meddle.“I think (it’s) one of the weirdest things in modern American history,” Sanders said.“This is a huge deal. And that we don’t have a president speaking out on this issue is a horror show, and we have got to bring Democrats and Republicans together despite the president, to go forward to protect the integrity of American democracy.”The president also bashed the news media this weekend and accused it of exaggerating the Russia story.The media bashed back.A Washington Post column headlined, “We’ve Just Hit A New Presidential Low,” said: “Imagine how history would have judged Franklin D. Roosevelt in the aftermath of Pearl Harbor, if he had taken to the radio airwaves to declare that Tokyo was ‘laughing their asses off.’ Or if George W. Bush had stood in the rubble of the World Trade Center with a bullhorn and launched a name-calling tirade against the Democrats…”“(Trump’s) self-absorption is such that he cannot see beyond his own fixation, which is that all of this has no meaning beyond the legitimacy of his own election. Moscow must indeed be laughing.”last_img read more

Algerian Parties Reject PJD’s Proposed Visit to Algeria

Rabat – The PJD, Morocco’s ruling party, announced on Tuesday its intention to start visiting Algerian political parties, following King Mohammed VI’s speech calling for a dialogue with “openness” and “good faith” between the countries.The Algerian Ennahda and Front for Justice and Construction (FJC) parties rejected the invitation Thursday, according to Algerian media outlet TSA.“The PJD is the ruling party in his country. Therefore, they will act as a representative of the Moroccan government. I think that this approach advocated by this Moroccan party will not lead it to what it wants,” said Mohamed Doubi, the secretary general of Ennahda. The PJD said it wanted to meet Algerian parties “in order to seek solutions with a view to normalizing bilateral relations and overcoming all disputes that prevent the development of cooperation between the two countries”.If the PJD “wants to achieve positive results, it must take an initiative in a formal framework through the government it leads. The parties do not have the capacity to make decisions binding on both countries,” Doubi said. He added that opening the border must be studied between the governments of the two countries.Algeria’s FJC went even further, saying the onus was on Morocco, reports TSA. “Morocco must first put an end to the tension,” said Slimane Chenine, deputy of the FJC party. “The PJD’s initiative linked to King Mohammed VI’s speech is not in line with our movement’s approach,” Chenine said.Spain, France, the UAE, Jordan, the African Union and the United Nations Secretary-General have supported King Mohammed VI’s initiative to establish a joint political mechanism for dialogue with Algeria. read more

Police seize product at four unlicensed cannabis dispensaries

As Canada nears the one-year anniversary of legalizing cannabis, Regina police cracked down on four “unlicensed cannabis dispensaries” allegedly operating in the city.RPS officers, along with investigators from Safer Communities and Neighbourhoods (SCAN), seized cannabis and cannabis products like oils, creams and edibles, as well as cash and documents related to the sale of illicit cannabis, police said in a media release issued late Monday night. Dispensary owners and employees at alleged illicit dispensaries on the 1400 block of Scarth Street, 2800 block of Saskatchewan Drive, 2400 block of Dewdney Avenue and 1500 block of 11th Avenue were charged and fined for unlawfully committing offences under the Saskatchewan Cannabis Control Act.The Leader-Post reached out to the shops at those locations for someone to comment on the busts, but no one responded as of late Tuesday afternoon. Adjacent business operators confirmed seeing a heavy police presence at those locations on Monday.Police have not released the names of the businesses, nor of the individuals charged. City police spokeswoman Elizabeth Popowich said the reason for that is that individuals were charged not under the Criminal Code or Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, but rather a provincial statute.Charges include distribution of illicit cannabis, possession of illicit cannabis and possession of more than 30 grams of cannabis.While Popowich didn’t release names, she said those charged are not the same people charged back in March 2018 when police raided six cannabis dispensaries in the city said to have been selling the drug illegally. The locations searched this time were also different from those raided last year.In total, six individuals were charged following Monday’s raids. Popowich said in some cases, people were issued tickets they could either voluntarily pay or challenge in court. In other cases — she couldn’t say how many — those charged were summonsed to appear in court on Dec. 16.“We believe that each of the principles were fully aware of our education and enforcement in early 2018,” Popowich said, although she was unable to confirm whether any of the businesses had been among those to receive direct contact and warnings from the police prior to the March 2018 raids.Popowich said the Monday enforcement was the result of a project that incorporated “weeks, if not months of investigation.” She added the project would have involved up to 40 people.Popowich said continued police focus on illegal cannabis dispensaries doesn’t come at the expense of investigations into serious, hard drugs currently plaguing Regina streets.“It would be inaccurate for people to assume that that is the only drug enforcement that is going on in the city,” she said. “We are working on other drugs in our community like methamphetamine and cocaine and now fentanyl, but they are different types of investigations and you don’t have a storefront on any of those. So the approach and the enforcement activity looks different. But that’s not to say that we are working on one to the exclusion of others.”Under legalization in Saskatchewan, six dispensary licences were made available in Regina, with five licensed shops currently operating in the city.The provincial Safer Communities and Neighbourhoods Act “is intended to empower residents to take back their neighbourhoods by reporting problem residences or businesses that are habitually used for illegal activities,” like drugs, prostitution, gang or criminal activities, child sexual abuse or the unlawful sale or consumption of alcohol. read more

On Chernobyl anniversary UN chief says impact of disaster must never be

“As we today mark 27 years after the Chernobyl disaster, we honour the emergency workers who risked their lives responding to the accident, the more than 330,000 people uprooted from their homes and the millions of people living in contaminated areas who have long been traumatized by lingering fears about their health and livelihoods,” said a statement issued by Mr. Ban’s spokesperson.“The countless women, men and children affected by radioactive contamination must never be forgotten.”In 2011, Mr. Ban became the first United Nations Secretary-General to visit the Chernobyl site, witnessing first hand the “great resilience” being demonstrated by the people affected by the explosion that occurred at the plant in Ukraine in 1986.“The affected area is still suffering from the impact of the accident,” noted today’s statement. “Environmental damage to food chains, land and water will in many cases last for years. At the same time, we can take heart from the fact that communities there now have the chance and, increasingly, the means, to lead a normal life.” Towards this end, the General Assembly proclaimed 2006-2016 a “Decade of Recovery and Sustainable Development” for the affected regions. There is also a UN Action Plan on Chernobyl which contains a declaration of principles embraced by all UN agencies involved in recovery efforts and emphasizes social and economic development and the promotion of healthy lifestyles and community self-reliance.“Those coping with the consequences of the Chernobyl disaster are demonstrating great resilience. But they continue to need support,” said the statement. “The Secretary-General calls on the international community to demonstrate generosity in helping affected regions as they strive for a long-sought return to normalcy.” Mr. Ban also reiterated the UN’s commitment to stand by those affected by the disaster, and to work for greater nuclear safety and sustainable energy worldwide. read more

AGs urging for data to help address Public Service Loan Forgiveness program

The program allows eligible borrowers to qualify for forgiveness of the remaining balance of their loans after having served full time at a public service organization for at least 10 years and having made 120 qualifying payments on their loan.In July of this year, DOE finally responded with incomplete information that was not fully responsive to the states’ request. In today’s letter, the coalition raises alarms about the ongoing mishandling of the PSLF program, noting that borrowers may be forced to choose between public service careers and being able to repay their student loans. In the letter, the coalition reiterated that DOE data would help states address the ongoing problems with PSLF, but the publicly available data DeVos has provided states thus far goes only a short way toward a full accounting of the current situation for borrowers relying on PSLF. Related Article: No school or state ACT testing in Louisville todayThe data provided by DOE indicates that only 864 of 76,002 applications for PSLF have been approved and only 442 of 12,429 applications to the Temporary Expanded PSLF program have been approved.The data shows that tens of thousands of borrowers have been denied. Therefore, the coalition has requested better data from DOE in order to examine the scope and source of the problems to assist these borrowers. FRANKFORT,Ky. (WTVQ) – A coalition of attorneys general on Wednesday sent a letter to U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos urging once again that the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) provide data to help states address ongoing problems with the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program.They say established in 2007, the PSLF program was created to encourage individuals to enter lower-paying but vitally important public sector jobs such as military service, law enforcement, public education, and public health professions. – Advertisement – read more

PanMac probed

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Recently, the speaker of the Greek Parliament stated that among other organisations, Pan-Mac (Pan-Macedonian Association) signed a letter addressed to the Greek government in which its members were threatened with death. How do you respond to that claim?I think that the claim is a deliberate exaggeration. The letter urges the government not to compromise on the naming dispute. I accept it further states that the penalty for treason is death. We are not threatening to kill anyone. We are merely pointing out what the legal penalty is for a possible act, like saying: “Don’t park here, or you’ll get a fine.”But the death penalty was abolished for High Treason in Greece in 2005. So how else is this letter to be interpreted? Did Pan-Mac obtain legal advice as to the applicable legal remedies before drafting the letter? Does this letter, which is factually incorrect, not damage Pan-Mac’s credibility vis-a-vis the Greek government?We did not draft this letter. It was drafted by our sister organisation in America and it was signed by all affiliated Pan-Mac Associations world-wide. We signed to express solidarity with the world body, focusing mainly on our fervent desire that there be no compromise on the naming dispute. We were not aware of the legal issues, but I believe focusing on this small point takes attention away from fact that we are on the precipice of a “solution” to this issue that will be disastrous for Greece. This is what the Greek government should be concerned with. It needs to justify its actions to the Greek people.Pan-Mac’s stance on the naming dispute is well known. Basically, you are against Greece recognising the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) by any name that includes the word ‘Macedonia’. In the letter Pan-Mac signed, it is stated that such a compromise is tantamount to treason. What is treason in your opinion?Treason is where someone deliberately acts against the interests of their country, knowing that this is harmful for their country. We believe that recognising FYROM as ‘Macedonia’ or any cognate of that term, is harmful for Greece as it impugns the historical, cultural and ethnic character of that region, which is vital for Greece. We believe that the government of Greece knows that to be the case.Pan-Mac is a Melbourne-based organisation, albeit with an affiliation to a world-wide body, which in reality, refers to America and a few other diasporan communities. It represents people who are domiciled in Australia. Why should the Greek government listen to you on this issue?If this was an issue of domestic importance, I would agree that we would have limited standing to express an opinion. However, this is an issue that transcends the borders of the state of Greece. It goes to the core of being Greek, affecting the identity of every single person identifying as Greek throughout the world. Any decision made by the Greek government does not only affect Greek citizens, but all of us. Given this is the case, I believe that Pan-Mac has every right to express an opinion and encourage the Greek government to adopt it. It is an opinion that we believe, is held by the majority of Greeks world-wide.Pan-Mac is just one of many Greek organisations in Victoria. Why should the combined Greek community listen to you? Why should we be bound by the pronouncements or policies of Pan-Mac on the naming dispute?Ever since the 90s, Pan-Mac has been at the forefront of this campaign. We have organised several mass community rallies, and never ceased our activism for the truth, even when this was not convenient or politically expedient. In the process, we have earned the trust and respect of the community. The outpouring of support we receive on a daily basis, especially lately from younger members of the community, validates our standing. Furthermore, there is a convention among community organisations here in Melbourne, that we are the organisation that is best placed to formulate community policy on this issue, just as we respect the Cypriot community’s right to articulate a policy on the Cyprus issue. Pan-Mac, along with other community organisations, is an active member of the Australian Hellenic Council, which is the mouthpiece of the Greek community to Canberra on issues concerning our community. It has adopted our position on this issue.And your policy is correct, whereas that of the Greek government, according to Pan-Mac, borders on the treasonous. Why are you right and why is the Greek government so wrong? Why is Pan-Mac so vociferously against compromise?The word ‘Macedonia’ is inextricably linked to the Greek identity. The government of FYROM, has over the years attempted to appropriate our historical heritage. It has also made irredentist claims against Greek territory. We believe that any use of a compound name that includes the word ‘Macedonia’ merely reinforces their spurious claims. Because the name is already used by those ignorant of the history and context, we believe that for brevity, any prefix arising out of a compromise solution will be dropped and the word ‘Macedonia’ will [be] used, something that is unacceptable. This country must have a name that reflects its own heritage, not ours.Given the above, why do you think that the Greek government is entertaining a solution that involves the use of the term?Quite frankly, this is one of the most disquieting things about the issue. The Greek government has not told the people why all of a sudden it has become urgent to solve an issue that has been smouldering away for decades, nor has it explained why it believes it is necessary to compromise by using a compound name when it is clear the majority of the people would be against it. We don’t know what the Greek government thinks it will gain out of such a compromise because they simply are not telling us. We don’t know what pressure is being applied and by whom, or why and this makes us fear that [the] Greek government is being compelled, for whatever reason, to act against the country’s own interests. We cannot sit idly by and let that happen without voicing our opposition to such a path. It might be politically expedient for the present government, but it is disastrous in the long-term of Hellenism.Is this why you organised the rally as a means of expressing that opposition?We organised the rally to express solidarity with the hundreds of thousands of Greeks in Greece who also held rallies. That is why we felt that it was important to use the same format for protest as that used in Greece. We wanted to be part of a chain of protest all around the world, sending a strong, unwavering message to the Greek government that we are against their policy on this issue, but also, that we are one, we are united.There are those who state that you only organised the rally because you felt threatened by the rally organised prior to yours by hitherto unknown members of the community. Specifically, that in the light of that rally, that Pan-Mac would look weak and ineffective if it did nothing, given that others had already seized the initiative before it.I don’t accept that view. At the time, we were doing what we always do: deliberating with members of the community, obtaining a consensus for further action and also liaising with the world-wide Pan-Mac body, so that our actions had the requisite community support and were co-ordinated. In our experience, which is extensive, we feel it is important to gauge events and consider the outcomes of possible courses of action before committing to them.And do you think you were successful? The number of people attending was, by all accounts, far lower than what was expected, especially compared to past rallies. Does this indicate a community crisis of confidence in Pan-Mac’s leadership on the issue?As part of a co-ordinated network of worldwide protest it was very effective. It concerned the Greek government enough for it to attempt to downplay the world-wide movement and grossly under-represent the numbers of those protesting in Greece. Furthermore, I believe any comparison between the previous rallies and this one, numbers-wise, is unhelpful. There are many reasons why people chose not to attend the rally, and they do not reflect in any way upon Pan-Mac and its reputation, which if anything has become enhanced over the past few months. The fact that the Premier of Victoria (Daniel Andrews) recently, on more than one occasion, stated that: “Macedonian is as Greek as the Parthenon,” a statement which was first made by his representative at the rally, can be attributed to the climate of understanding of the Hellenic character, engendered by Pan-Mac’s activism.So why did people stay away?Well, times have changed since the 90s. People have less spare time and more weekend commitments. Some expressed concerns about possible violence from members of the FYROM Australian community, a fear that was not unjustified considering the appalling way in which some of their members conducted themselves during their own rally. Others found the venue difficult to get to. Also, we need to understand that these days, rallies are not the only means of protest and comprise only one of many facets of our campaign. Compared with the 90s, social media also provides an important forum for activism. There were two significant things about the rally that have gone unnoticed and need to be pointed out. The first is that the youth predominated, a most reassuring sign of the vitality of our campaign. Secondly, that there were members of the Armenian, Assyrian, Chinese, Indian, Russian and Serbian communities present to express their solidarity, showing that our outreach is truly a multicultural one. Unity is vital.On the subject of unity, people in our community lately have commented on an increasingly intolerant attitude displayed by the Pan-Mac executive and members towards those who express different views on how the naming dispute should be solved. They state that there is a dualistic, us and them, with us or against us, patriots or traitors stance towards ‘dissenters’ emanating from leading personalities within Pan-Mac. Are those who believe in compromise traitors?I’m aware of this allegation and I believe it is disingenuous. We encourage debate and discussion because a free and frank exchange of ideas is important. At the same time however, we will not shy away from holding to our deeply-held convictions and articulating our point of view. In the lead up to the recent rally, Pan-Mac convened public meetings where a number of diverse views were expressed by attendees. Some of those views were diametrically opposed to our own. Nonetheless, we respect those persons’ right to an opinion and facilitated them being heard. Some of our members feel passionately about this issue and express themselves in a passionate manner. That in no way implies that others do not have the right to put forward a view. However, we also have a right to critique their views, if we think they are incorrect, or not in the national interest. Democracy and debate work both ways.One of those persons who has articulated a position on the naming dispute that differs from that of Pan-Mac is Professor Anastasios Tamis of the Australian Institute of Macedonian Studies. What is Pan-Mac’s relationship with Professor Tamis? Has it been damaged as a result of the difference in opinion?We respect Professor Tamis for the brilliant work he has undertaken over many years in studying and promoting scholarship on Macedonian Hellenism. His research on the history of Macedonians in Australia is extremely valuable and will prove to be of enduring importance to the broader Australian historical narrative. We look forward to the development of his further endeavours in the field of historical research. As for his views on the naming dispute, I reiterate that Pan-Mac believes that everyone has a right to their own opinion.The Australian Institute of Macedonian Studies has recently announced that it is seeking legal recourse against those persons/entities responsible for the atrocious acts of racial hatred committed against Greek Australians, by some of the attendees at the FYROM Australian rally, held a week after your own. Is this not something that Pan-Mac should be doing, or at least supporting?I agree with you that some of the incidents of racial vilification and intolerance at the FYROM rally were unprecedented and deeply disturbing. Our rally was peaceful and we made sure that it was focused on the naming dispute, not against the FYROM Australian community. There were no racial slurs, or pejorative sentiments expressed against that community. In contrast, with them, we witnessed the burning of the Greek flag, racist placards against the descendants of victims of the Pontian Genocide, derogatory slogans about the Greeks’ ancestry and even attacks on a Greek store owner. I am astonished that those responsible are so immature and given to hatred that they are willing to disturb the harmony of our multicultural and tolerant city and even make the streets of Melbourne unsafe, in order to pursue their goal. As a result, we have responded favourably to a proposal of mediation by the Victorian Multicultural Commission, in order to ensure that such terrible acts are never again repeated. We are currently engaging with this process, affirming our commitment to a peaceful and tolerant city.There are many families in Melbourne that because they have either intermarried into both communities or come from regions where their ethnic identity is in flux, are experiencing significant emotional upheaval at the moment, as a result of the Naming Dispute. What guidance if any, has been provided by Pan-Mac to such persons, during this time?You are right, this latest phase of the dispute has caused a lot of tension and has harmed interpersonal relationships and friendships. I’m aware of situations where family and friends have stopped speaking to each other because of this issue. I find that deplorable. To those who have come to us for guidance, and I need to stress that this includes both people that identify as Greek, and as FYROMian, we have urged them to put the dispute to one side and engage with one another, to relate to each other as human beings. We need to focus on the things that unite us. There are many. We share similar customs and traditions, our music is similar, we share the same religion and our histories are intertwined. This does not mean we cannot share our views on the dispute but if we do, it should be in a respectful and appropriate way.Chris MoutzikisRecently, the leadership of Pan-Mac has changed. You have been appointed chairperson. What are your aspirations for Pan-Mac moving forward?Structural reform is necessary if Pan-Mac is going to effectively meet the challenges of the future and remain relevant to emerging generations. Currently, Pan-Mac’s structure does not address the fact that the vast majority of the Greek people, including those coming from Macedonia, no longer feel represented by small, regional brotherhoods. This needs attention, especially since we receive a vast amount of support from youth who are not represented or do not participate in the groups that traditionally constitute our Association. I would like Pan-Mac to be able to better utilise the tremendous groundswell of support it enjoys by people of all walks of life, making more of our extensive contacts within the academic world and especially in local, state and federal government. Greater attention needs to be paid to social media and modern forms of communication. New and novel ways to get our message across are already being trialled. We can always enhance our engagement with the broader mainstream community while also maintaining our close ties with our own community. The recent addition of the Thessaloniki Association as a constituent member of Pan-Mac both underlies the enduring relevance of our Association and acts as [a] blueprint for the future.Let’s assume that tomorrow, the naming dispute is solved. I want to moot two scenarios with you. Firstly, the Greek government compromises and accepts a composite name. Here in Australia, the government has stated that it will accept any outcome agreed to by Greece. What will Pan-Mac do? Will it ask the Australian government to go back on that commitment, which has been the focus of the Greek community’s lobbying up until now? Is there a contingency plan? Have feelers been made out to the relevant politicians in this regard?There is constant communication with stakeholders on all levels. We do not resile from our position and are prepared to campaign with greater vigour against any unfair outcome, should this prove necessary. We are already circulating a petition to the Australian government that we encourage everyone to sign.I understand that petition is in response to a FYROM Australian petition calling upon the Australian government to recognise FYROM as ‘Macedonia’. Why is it necessary if the government’s stance already precludes recognition of a name not acceptable to Greece? Isn’t that just duplication of the work already achieved by the Australian Hellenic Council and other community groups? And what if the response is disappointing? How will that reflect upon Pan-mac’s grasp of strategy and credibility?Times and policies can change easily in response to pressure and expediency. We want to ensure this does not happen. To date, we are satisfied with the response and encourage all Greeks to sign the petition.Let us assume that by some stroke of good fortune, the naming dispute is solved by means of FYROM accepting a name that does not include the term ‘Macedonia’. Does that make Pan-Mac redundant? Where to from there?That outcome would be great. Redundant? Not at all. Our aim is to promote Macedonian Hellenism and make it relevant to the country in which we live. A solution to the naming dispute would enhance our ability to seek new and novel ways to make lasting contributions to the multicultural fabric of our society, as Macedonian Australians. What is inspiring is the interest we receive from younger, hitherto disengaged members of our community. Many tell us that it was through Pan-Mac’s work that they discovered the relevance of Hellenism to them. Periodically, we even have members of the FYROM Australian community contact us because they are questioning the veracity of what they have been told by their community, through their reading of reputable historical research. We want to build on that.Finally, I’d venture to say that apart from the pressing urgent domestic issues of poverty, economic crisis and institutional decay that plague Greece, there are other ‘national’ issues of immediate importance to Greeks, such as the Cyprus issue, given that part of the island is occupied by a foreign army, or the crisis in the Aegean. In Northern Epirus, we have a large native Greek population living within Albania, that does not always have its human rights respected. In the case of Macedonia, we have none of these immediate problems. And yet Greek concern on these issues, save for those who come from these regions, is minimal. What is it about Macedonia that has been able to fuel the passions of the Greek people to such a great extent?Possibly it is because Macedonia represents one of the greatest and most important periods in Greek history. I’m not just referring to Alexander the Great and the enduring awe in which he is held by the Greek people. Rather, it is because it was only through Macedonia that the concept of Greek unity was achieved and it was only through Macedonia that Greek civilisation was able to engage as an equal with those around it and spread, creating the prototype for globalisation. It is this blueprint for a worldwide Hellenism, a Hellenism that transcends borders that is a relevant paradigm for us as a diasporan community. I think that this vision, realised by the Macedonians, has been espoused by all of us and that is why Macedonia is at the core of our Greek identity. It is also why we react so strongly when it is threatened. That being said, you are right in stating that the other issues you mentioned are also important and we support and enjoy excellent relations with the Cypriot Community and the Panepirotic Federation.last_img read more

Longterm deal for childrens health again eludes Congress

first_imgWASHINGTON — Congress has again failed to approve long-term funds for a popular program that provides health insurance for nearly 9 million low-income children, leaving each party blaming the other for Christmas-season gridlock and states scrambling to decide how to parcel out dwindling money.Lawmakers scurrying to leave the Capitol for the holidays approved a short-term patch Thursday designed to keep state programs operating through March, though some Republicans said federal officials think the money would run out by early February. The money was part of a bill averting a weekend federal shutdown. Congress had approved a previous stopgap solution for the children’s health program that was about to expire.Democrats and Republicans agree that finances for the Children’s Health Insurance Program should be renewed for five years, but they’ve clashed over how to pay for it. And while few think Congress would blunder into letting the money completely lapse — which no lawmaker would care to defend with elections approaching — an effort to provide long-term money collapsed as leaders punted a bunch of unresolved issues until early next year.“What GOP is obsessed with: Ramming through tax cuts for the rich and powerful,” tweeted Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., referring to the $1.5 trillion tax bill Congress approved this week. “What GOP completely ignores: Extending #CHIP – health care for our children.”“We would love to pass it. They won’t let us,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said in an interview, asserting that Democrats had blocked a multiyear extension.last_img read more

TV actress harassed by petrol pump employees in Kolkata

first_imgKolkata: A popular television actress was on Sunday allegedly assaulted by employees of a petrol pump in southern Kolkata after she had an argument with them for refilling her vehicle’s fuel tank more than she had asked for, a police officer said. The actress and her parents had gone to the petrol pump in Kasba area this morning to refuel their vehicle. She alleged that despite she asking the employees to fill fuel worth Rs 1,500, they put in more than that into the vehicle’s tank, the officer said. “When questioned why they put fuel more than what was asked for, employees at the petrol pump said it was a mistake but we have to pay for the excess fuel. When my father denied, they allegedly abused my father and tried to assault him. They even took away the key of our car. It was then that I intervened and called up police dialling 100,” the actress said.The actress later narrated the incident on a social networking website.

Both companies are committed to the goals of the IHE-RO effort (Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise – Radiation Oncology), initiated by the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) and the Radiological Society of America (RSNA) to standardize the communication between oncology information systems and treatment delivery systems.While the two companies work toward implementing a DICOM worklist-based communication protocol, Siemens will use Varian’s 4D Integrated Treatment Console interface to connect their own radiotherapy treatment machines, which include the ARTISTE Solution, and ONCOR™ and PRIMUS™ linear accelerators with ARIA.Dow Wilson, president of Varian Medical Systems’ Oncology business remarked, “We’re pleased about the opportunity to work with Siemens on standardized solutions for integrating information technology in order to promote an open environment that helps to improve the cost efficiency and affordability of cancer care. Ensuring interoperability with our market leading ARIA Oncology Information System and Siemens syngo Suite for Oncology, and improving workflow between our systems, will be a great benefit to the oncology community.””We need to encourage our industry to move towards the DICOM standard and ensure that DICOM is utilized to its fullest potential,” added Holger Schmidt, CEO, Oncology Care Systems, Siemens Healthcare, “We are happy that both Siemens and Varian are fully committed to implementing the DICOM standard following the IHE-RO workflows. Siemens is very excited to work with Varian on the interoperability between ARIA and Siemens’ syngo Suite for Oncology and help clinics maximize cost efficiencies.”For more information: www.varian.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Videos | Artificial Intelligence | February 27, 2019 VIDEO: Example of AI-assisted Oncology Patient Record Dashboard Here is an example of new artific… read more Technology | Oncology Information Management Systems (OIMS) | October 04, 2018 RaySearch Releases Version 2B of RayCare Oncology Information System RaySearch Laboratories AB has released RayCare 2B, the latest version of its oncology information system (OIS).

Ntabakuze was convicted of conspiracy to commit genocide, genocide, complicity in genocide, and crimes against humanity.Lt. Ildephonse Hategekimana’s sentence of life imprisonment was affirmed by the appeals chamber.Hategekimana was found guilty of genocide in the massacre of civilian Tutsis in Ngoma and of raping Tutsi women.Former businessman Gaspard Kanyarugika’s 30-year sentence was also affirmed by the appeals court on grounds that the defense did not prove beyond doubt that the convict did not commit the 1994 horrendous attacks and killings against ethnic Tutsis.Judge Patrick Robinson ordered that Kanyarugika be given credit for time served since his 2004 arrest.At least 500,000 ethnic Tutsis and moderate Hutus were slaughtered during the 100-day genocide in 1994. The tribunal was established in November that year.The U.N. court has rendered 69 judgments, including 10 acquittals. One trial is pending and 15 cases are still before the appeals court.The president of the international tribunal, Rachida Khan, told the U.N.

Vinaka Vaka Levu TravelManagers for your support following Cyclone Wi

first_imgTravelManagers’ Sydney-based personal travel managers show their support for Fiji at the Cyclone Winston fundraising breakfast. (L-R) Deahann Urqueza, Belinda Hackett, Michelle Michael-Pecora, Michelle Schulze, Sue Kuti, Andrew Stanbury (Acting Executive GM, Sales and Marketing – Fiji Airways), Truman Bradley (Chairman of Tourism Fiji & Investment Fiji), Lyn Tyson, Julie Painter, Aliki Iosifidis, Virginia Stace, Michael Gazal (Executive GM – TravelManagers Australia) Saturday 20 February 2016 will forever be a memorable day for many Fijians. It was the day Cyclone Winston, the strongest tropical cyclone to hit Fiji on record, made its presence felt.Cyclone Winston spared the main tourist destinations of Fiji, however devastated some of Fiji’s remote islands, flattening many villages and leaving thousands homeless.With community spirit being such a key focus for TravelManagers, it came as little surprise to Executive General Manager Michael Gazal, that the personal travel managers immediately asked what they could do to help.“TravelManagers immediately contacted sister company HOOT Holidays’ local ground operator Rosie Holidays to understand what was the greatest need,” Gazal said.“After hearing that some Fijians could be without housing for up to two years, TravelManagers and HOOT Holidays purchased 25 high-quality Katmandu four-person tents that were sent to Fiji and delivered with other essential supplies by yacht to the Makogai, Koro and Yadua islands.”With 53,630 Fijians in evacuation centres, 3,360 houses destroyed, 143 schools partially damaged and 60,239 students without classrooms, funds are still in desperate need in the aftermath of Cyclone Winston.To assist with fundraising efforts, the Tourism Action Group (comprising of Fiji Airways, Tourism Fiji, Fiji Hotel and Tourism Association and the Society of Fiji Travel Associates) held a fundraising initiative last Friday for the Australian travel industry. The Cyclone Winston Fundraising breakfast event was hosted by Fiji Airways and Tourism Fiji and was held at Sydney’s Sheraton on the Park.Both HOOT Holidays and TravelManagers purchased individual tables as further support for Fiji.“Our heartfelt thanks go to the team at TravelManagers who have been a long-time supporter of Fiji tourism. With tourism such an important part of the Fijian economy we in the Australian travel industry have a great opportunity to assist Fiji’s recovery,” says Andrew Stanbury Acting Executive General Manager, Sales and Marketing Fiji Airways.The event was twofold, to raise much needed funds to assist relief efforts but also to reassure the industry that Fiji was ‘Bula as usual’.“Although the cyclone has affected a number of areas, the country’s tourism infrastructure was spared and we can confidently continue to sell one of TravelManagers’ favourite holiday destinations with conviction,” Gazal said.Stanbury talked about the importance of tourism to the Fijian people and economy.“Tourism represents the largest foreign contributor to Fiji’s GDP. The key role the travel industry must play in helping Fiji get back on their feet is boosting visitor numbers out of the Australian Market. Fiji Airways’ motivation in leading the way with the introduction of some extremely competitive airfare offers is our way of making it an easy sell,” he said.The TravelManagers’ community spirit for Fiji has a long history with personal travel managers. In 2012 whilst in Fiji on conference, the entire TravelManagers team worked together to give a local primary school a makeover after it was damaged by floods earlier that year.In 2013, personal travel manager Karen Christie created a much needed library at the Deuba District School in Pacific Harbour by donating over 2000 books and in 2014 personal travel manager Robbie Barrett organised the collection of more than 100 bras specifically for women on Nacula Island, a remote part of Fiji in the Northern Yasawa Islands.“The strongest message for TravelManagers is the culture of our business and our desire to give back. The opportunity for our personal travel managers to do something that benefits communities that need it most, mirrors our business philosophy of going the extra mile. That sums up the culture of TravelManagers and we are extremely proud of that,” Gazal said.
