Ottawa Citizen says NHLs Senators refused to let reporter on charter

first_imgThe Ottawa Citizen said Friday that hockey reporter Ken Warren was denied access to the Ottawa Senators’ team charter to Tampa Bay for a weekend game against the Lightning.The development came two days after the newspaper said it would not take down a secretly recorded video of several Senators players from an Uber vehicle in Arizona despite a legal notice from the NHL team insisting that leaving it online violates provincial privacy laws.Warren, a Senators’ beat writer, had been given a travel itinerary but was told at the airport that he could not board the flight, Ottawa Citizen editor-in-chief Michelle Richardson said.“I can confirm it happened this morning,” Richardson said. “For us, it doesn’t really change our fundamentals. We’re still committed to covering the Senators, both the good and the bad. Our coverage is important to our readers and to their fans and that’s not going to change.”Depending on the market, reporters, broadcasters, photojournalists and other travelling media members sometimes fly on team charters, which can be more timely and convenient than commercial flights. The Citizen, like most outlets, pays employee transportation costs when charters are used.The Senators didn’t immediately comment when asked about the story. Warren declined comment Friday afternoon, referring questions to Richardson.“He’s still going to make it for the game,” Richardson said from Ottawa. “Just a little bit of a delay.”Earlier this week, the newspaper flatly rejected a legal notice from the NHL team, saying a video shot surreptitiously by an Uber driver was circulating on social media when the paper decided to report on it.In the video, seven players can be seen ridiculing Senators assistant coach Martin Raymond and scornfully discussing the team’s penalty-killing performance. The video was shot without the players’ knowledge by the driver of the Uber vehicle they were riding in while on the road in Phoenix.The video shared by the Citizen also appeared on websites of other publications owned by Postmedia Network Inc., the paper’s parent company. The players later apologized for their remarks.“We’re committed to being fair and accurate,” Richardson said. “We’re committed to giving everybody a chance to respond and to being really impartial in our coverage. Our duty is to report on the facts as we know them and that doesn’t change.”An Uber spokesperson said the recording was a “clear violation” of the company’s community guidelines, adding that Uber had helped to have the video taken down from YouTube.The Senators nearly reached the Stanley Cup final in 2017 but have dealt with a string of problems on and off the ice since. Ottawa has a 6-7-3 record this season.———With files from Canadian Press reporter Michelle McQuigge. Follow @GregoryStrongCP on Twitter.last_img read more

RSS praises Air Force Modi govt for air strike in Pakistan

first_imgGwalior: The RSS Friday lauded the Indian Air Force (IAF) for hitting terror launch pads in Pakistan and also praised the government for taking the decision. A resolution to this effect was passed on day one of the three-day meeting of the Akhil Bhartiya Pratinidhi Sabha, RSS’ highest policy-making body, which began here Friday. “The meeting passed an ‘abhinandan prastav’ lauding the IAF for the air strike and also praised the government for this decision,” RSS joint general secretary Manmohan Vaidya RSS told reporters. “The government has taken the right decision to deal with the anti-national forces and Indians should also remain cautious of such elements,” he said. The meeting also expressed deep sorrow over the Pulwama and other terror attacks that killed armed forces personnel, he said. “India’s sahishnuta (tolerance) should not be treated as its weakness,” Vaidya said. Around 1,400 members of the Pratinidhi Sabha including RSS head, Mohan Bhagwat and Sarkaryavaha Bhaiyaji Joshi are taking part in the meeting, which will also discuss the Sabrimala temple issue, he said. Vaidya said the Kerala government is working against the spirit of Supreme Court ruling on the shrine by playing with the faith of Hindus and forcing entry of women who are not Hindus in the temple. On the Ram temple issue, he said all those associated with the matter are putting their views in the Supreme Court. “We have full faith in the judicial system and hope the all obstacles will be cleared and the temple constructed,” Vaidya said. He said no separate discussion will take place in the meeting on the ensuing Lok Sabha elections, adding the RSS believes that maximum number of people should vote. Participants at the three-day meet will share their ideas and experience on issues like social harmony, environment conservation, saving water, reducing use of plastic and tree plantation, Vaidya said. The number of RSS ‘shakhas’ (branches/units) increased this year, compared to last year, he said. In 2018, there were 58,967 shakhas and the number now is 59,266, he said. As part of the meeting, Sangh workers of 35 bodies associated with the RSS will place their views before Bhagwat, he said. The meeting will also decide next year’s agenda for the organisation, he added.last_img read more

UN agency prioritizes most needy Syrian refugees in Iraq for food assistance

“Our assessments have shown that while some families have the resources to meet their food needs, many Syrian families in the Kurdistan region still need continued assistance,” explained Matteo Perrone, WFP Emergency Coordinator for the Syrian refugees operation in Iraq. “Our effort is to focus on meeting the food needs of the most vulnerable refugees,” he added in a news release. This month, WFP will channel all available resources to over 48,000 refugees who still require support to meet their food needs. The monthly voucher value will be reduced to $10 per person per month for over 47,000 moderately vulnerable refugees, while nearly 1,000 refugees considered the most vulnerable will continue to receive $19 per person per month to meet their food needs.Some 50,000 previously assisted Syrian refugees will no longer receive food assistance from WFP. These people have been advised of the decision by SMS messages and other means.The decisions being taken on the prioritization of food assistance are based on comprehensive interagency food security and vulnerability assessment, to measure the general food security status of refugees living in camps and their ability to cope, WFP said. Factors taken into account include access to livelihood opportunities, food consumption, household expenditure, coping strategies and other socio-economic considerations. The assessment found that food insecurity was not a major problem faced by refugees in camps, due to the fact that Iraq is the only country in the region where refugees can hold work permits, allowing them to earn money to meet their families’ food needs. The assessments found that 85 per cent of Syrian refugees in Iraq have an external source of income. Efforts will be made to make sure nobody falls through the cracks, stressed the agency. “Through our regular post-distribution monitoring, WFP will keep a close eye on the food security situation for all refugees to ensure that families affected by these cuts are not impacted negatively,” Mr. Perrone stated. WFP’s food voucher programme for Syrian refugees in neighbouring countries is the largest in the world, and is funded entirely by voluntary contributions. Nearly 1.6 million Syrian refugees, spread across five countries in the region, are assisted through WFP food vouchers every month.Last month, WFP avoided suspension of that programme thanks to a $65 million from the United Sates. read more

New Dean of Applied Health Sciences just getting started

Peter Tiidus, Applied Health Sciences Dean. After starting on July 1, Peter Tiidus is ready to take his first steps as the new Dean of Applied Health Sciences at Brock University.As a muscle and exercise physiologist whose research has earned an international reputation, Tiidus wants to use his leadership experience to expand the Faculty’s reputation as well as its community links.“We would like to foster further involvement of our extensive alumni community in our current programs and work together to develop future networks of collaboration,” said Tiidus, who spent 26 years as a faculty member, department chair and acting Dean at Wilfrid Laurier University.Tiidus sees Brock as the ideal destination to couple his academic background in health sciences with his affinity for administration.“I have known of Brock’s Faculty of Applied Health Sciences as the home of a number of dynamic and innovative programs that attract many high quality students, and my first week here has only reinforced these perceptions.“What I expect to enjoy most is the opportunity to work with a dedicated group of faculty in furthering the development of research, teaching and service opportunities that will continue to bring this Faculty national and international attention.”Tiidus sits on the editorial boards of several academic journals, including Medicine & Science in Sports and Exercise. He has served on the board of directors of the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology and as chair of the Examinations Committee for the Ontario College of Kinesiologists. He also co-chaired the Academic Priorities Review Team that made academic and budget recommendations for Laurier’s future development.His 34-year academic career is highlighted by more than 90 peer-reviewed articles, two book releases and more than 100 presentations throughout North America and Europe, but Tiidus regards his appointment as Dean of AHS as the culmination of his career.“This a wonderful opportunity to utilize my experiences as an academic and administrator to help develop the full potential of all of the departments in Applied Health Sciences.”A former competitive swimmer and swim coach, Tiidus stays active and hopes to regularly visit Brock’s pool and fitness facilities. He also likes to spend time at his family cottage with friends and his wife Ann, a retired teacher. read more

Australie un permis de tuer pour les crocodiles

first_imgAustralie : un permis de tuer pour les crocodiles ?L’Australie envisage d’autoriser la chasse aux crocodiles marins, lors de safaris payants. Un projet déjà évoqué mais qui n’avait jamais abouti face au veto des associations de protection des animaux. Le gouvernement australien a lancé ce jeudi, une consultation publique.Sur quel pied danse l’Australie ? En une seule journée, le ministre de l’Environnement Tony Burke s’est mis à dos les défenseurs de la nature et leurs opposants. Il réjouissait d’abord la communauté écologiste en proclamant la création du plus vaste réseau au monde de réserves marines, provoquant la colère des exploitants pétroliers et des pêcheurs. Et puis, comme si le besoin de compenser s’en faisait sentir, il y a cette déclaration qui encourage la chasse aux crocodiles marins, lors de safaris payants pour les touristes. Une main tendue aux protecteurs de la nature bien vite rengainée. Certaines populations d’animaux sont en effet régulées par la chasse. Ce sont les espèces dites “nuisibles” et leur régulation est bien souvent liée à la protection d’exploitation agricole et forestière, mais se fait aussi dans l’objectif de protéger la faune locale et contribuer par là-même à l’expansion de la biodiversité. La France agrée chaque année des chasseurs professionnels qui ciblent des animaux spécifiques, en accord avec les autorités locales, le ministère de l’Environnement et les associations de protection des animaux. En Australie, c’est aussi le cas. Les animaux domestiques retournés à l’état sauvage peuplent de nombreux parcs nationaux et sont parfois la cause de l’extinction d’espèces endémiques. Le lapin, introduit par les Européens au moment de la colonisation australienne, en est un exemple parfait : sa facilité de reproduction a été telle qu’il a fallu introduire des renards pour éviter qu’ils ne détruisent les cultures. Le renard a ainsi profité de son rôle de prédateur pour s’attaquer à d’autres espèces, endémiques celles-ci, et provoquer leur disparition précoce. Régulièrement, les gardes-chasse, accompagnés de chasseurs professionnels, ferment les parcs nationaux et traquent les chèvres, les cochons ou les renards, menaces pour la biodiversité. Un crocodile aux dents longues Cette fois-ci, le gouvernement australien a donc décidé de s’attaquer à un problème plus récurent. Le crocodile marin, ciblé par ce projet, est le plus grand prédateur d’Australie. Il vit dans les marais et les rivières des régions côtières du nord du pays, et tolèrent aussi bien l’eau salée que l’eau douce. C’est le plus gros reptile vivant, et les accidents qui lui sont imputés, sont nombreux. Espèce protégée depuis les années 1970, elle n’est aujourd’hui plus considérée comme menacée, sa population compte près de 150.000 individus en Australie. En raison de l’accroissement du nombre de crocodiles marins, le gouvernement estime qu’il se doit d’en réguler la population. Le ministre de l’Environnement Tony Burke a ainsi proposé une consultation publique sur le sujet : “Il y a des opinions différentes au sein des propriétaires traditionnels des terres concernées (les aborigènes: ndlr) et je veux être certain d’entendre toutes les opinions”, a-t-il déclaré cité par l’AFP. Les autorités du Territoire du Nord se félicitent de cette décision : elles pourraient donner du travail aux aborigènes en tant que chasseurs ou guides et favoriser l’arrivée de touristes venus chasser le crocodile marin. Un permis de tuer délivré aux touristes ? Si le principe de régulation semble admis, c’est son ouverture au “chasseurs-touristes” qui fait bondir la Société de protection des animaux (RSPCA). Elle dénonce la chasse touristique au crocodile marin : “il n’existe aucun bénéfice, en terme de protection de la nature ou de contrôle des populations, à attendre de la chasse au trophée aux crocodiles”, s’est indigné Bidda Jones, responsable scientifique à la RSPCA. “Il ne s’agit rien d’autre que de tuer des animaux pour le plaisir et rien ne peut justifier cela”, a-t-elle ajouté. De son côté, le secrétaire à l’Environnement du Territoire du Nord, Karl Hampton, s’est défendu en rappelant que des safaris étaient déjà organisés pour contrôler la population de buffles et de cochons sauvages. “Comme pour ces safaris, ceux proposés par le Programme de gestion des crocodiles seront soumis à la loi sur le bien-être des animaux, et des conditions très strictes seront appliquées”, a souligné Karl Hampton. Un quota de cinquante reptiles chassés pour les deux premières années pourrait ainsi être mis en place par les autorités. Cette nouvelle intervient quelques semaines après la publication d’une photo du Roi d’Espagne Juan Carlos, posant avec son fusil de chasse devant un éléphant abattu, au Botswana. La communauté internationale s’était indignée contre cette image. Une fois encore, la question éthique d’un tourisme “chasseur” demeure.Le 15 juin 2012 à 09:40 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Martians Can Now Communicate With Amazons Alexa AI Assistant

first_img Geek Pick: Amazon Smart Plug Puts Alexa in Your WallsGeek Pick: Amazon Echo Show 5 Is a Nightstand Alexa Display Stay on target No, you’re not seeing things. Martians really can communicate with Alexa now. Martian smartwatches that is. Actual Martians, not so much.So far, Martian has taken a much more conservative approach to its smartwatch designs than, say, Pebble, Apple, or Samsung. They’ve stuck with traditional analog watch faces augmented by a small “crawl” display nestled just above 6 o’clock.They don’t do touchscreens. Martian’s watches use the crown for input, though some of its watches also let you use an integrated microphone. And now you can use that microphone to interact with Amazon’s AI assistant.Yes, the same Alexa that you may already have come to know and love through your Echo or Echo dot will come to your aid when you call her on your wrist, Dick Tracy-style.It’s a very welcome feature addition by Martian since it gives their users the same kind of functionality that Apple Watch Owners get with Siri and Android Wear users get when they say “OK Google.”Martian isn’t just bringing Alexa to newer watches like the mVoice either. She’s being rolled out to many of their older models, including the G2G, Victory, and Passport — all of which you can pick up for about $80 on Martian’s web outlet if you’re interested in a cheap wearable that comes with a virtual assistant.All of the mVoice watches (the AE, PT, and PTL) are getting Alexa, too. That means you’ll be able to do around 5,000 things you could never do before with your Martian watch as soon as you update the firmware.last_img read more

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires

first_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires And that, along with everything Mathieu has shown him since being drafted in April, is why the coach is confident this will be little more than a speed bump for a rising star.“He’s got a bright, bright future, just right now he’s got to work hard at getting his leg back,” Arians said. “And I’m sure he will.” – / 27 The road to recovery will be a long one. Of course, his path to this point has not exactly been a smooth one, so adversity is not anything new to the former LSU star. But his previous issues were of the self-made variety, and not injury related. That Mathieu has been able to overcome those, however, emerging as a key member of a playoff contender, bodes well for his comeback journey.“He’s been fantastic, and he’s a leader,” Arians said. “Very seldom do you see young guys come in and become a leader like he has, especially in the secondary. But his personality is infectious with the guys because he loves football. “He’ll stay out there and practice all day and go as hard as he can. Those are guys you miss.”From here, it will be all about how Mathieu responds to something that happened to him.“He was crying, he was sad,” Arians said. “He’s never been injured. These guys that get hurt for the first time, it’s devastating. And when you take away the thing he loves the most and works so hard for, he was devastated.“But he’ll get over it, he’s strong. He’s got a lot of support.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact TEMPE, Ariz. — It may be a while before we see Tyrann Mathieu on a football field again.The safety left Sunday’s game with what was feared to be an ACL injury, and news came out Monday that things were even worse than originally thought.Cardinals coach Bruce Arians announced Mathieu, who hurt himself returning a safety-kick in the third quarter of Sunday’s 30-10 win over the St. Louis Rams, will need surgery to repair the anterior cruciate ligament and lateral collateral ligament in his left knee. He added surgery is usually performed eight days after the initial injury. Comments   Share   center_img Top Stories The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “It’s a shame,” he said. “Prognosis is crazy — it’s individuals. Some guys…this will be a long one, but I won’t tempt to say how long because it’s individual guys now.”Asked if Mathieu could be back in time for training camp, Arians was not optimistic.“I would doubt that,” he said. “I would doubt that.”The injury is a significant blow to a Cardinals defense that has evolved into one of the best in the NFL. Though a rookie, Mathieu had become one of the team’s most important players, as the safety had 68 tackles to go along with two interceptions and one forced fumble.Able to play both safety and cornerback, his versatility in the defensive backfield will be missed.“It will take two guys to take his place,” Arians said. The coach said Rashad Johnson, Antoine Cason, Jerraud Powers, Bryan McCann, Javier Arenas can all help fill the void in coverage, but added with Mathieu, no substitutions were necessary. With three games left in the regular season and the Cardinals still in the playoff race, replacing Mathieu on the field is certainly an important issue to figure out. However, much of the focus will turn to the 21-year-old’s future, especially given how bright it appears to be.last_img read more
