Constitutional arguments in polygamy case delayed in British Columbia court

first_imgCRANBROOK, B.C. – A court case that challenges Canada’s ban on polygamy on constitutional grounds has been pushed back a month because of delays in filing legal documents.Dan McLaughlin, a spokesman for the B.C. Prosecution Service, says the Crown asked for an adjournment after receiving new material from the defence Monday evening, the day before the hearing was set to start.Winston Blackmore’s lawyer, Blair Suffredine, says he added 10 paragraphs to the end of an affidavit.Blackmore is the leader of a small community in southeastern British Columbia that follows the teachings of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which endorses plural marriage. The mainstream Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has renounced any connection to the polygamist group.A B.C. Supreme Court judge found Blackmore and fellow church leader James Oler each guilty of one count of polygamy earlier this year, but the convictions will not be entered pending the outcome of the constitutional arguments.The hearing has been rescheduled to begin Dec. 12 and last three days.last_img read more

Students teachers gather to mourn teen killed in Greektown shooting

first_imgTORONTO – High school students and teachers interrupted their summer vacations on Tuesday to mourn a teen killed in a shooting spree in Toronto’s Greektown over the weekend, remembering her as a kind individual and a natural caregiver.Reese Fallon had graduated from Malvern Collegiate Institute just last month and was out on a stretch of the city’s Danforth Avenue on Sunday night when she was shot by a man who fired at restaurants, patios and pedestrians.Fallon and a 10-year-old girl, who hasn’t been publicly identified at her family’s request, were killed and 13 others were injured. The gunman was found dead in the area.On Tuesday, dozens of Fallon’s classmates gathered at her high school to remember the 18-year-old, who was preparing to study nursing at Hamilton’s McMaster University in the fall.“This stuff happens all over the world every day, but you never really feel it till it’s close to you,” said 17-year-old Max Flath, who wasn’t close to Fallon but saw her at school every day. “She was a great person.”Bouquets of flowers, handwritten notes and candles had been placed outside the school, underneath the building’s Canadian flag, which flew at half-mast.Inside the building, five social workers and 15 therapy dogs were in place to provide support to those who needed it.The Toronto District School Board said it decided to open the school to mourners after seeing the outpouring of emotion following Fallon’s death. A board spokeswoman said about 100 students showed up to the school on Tuesday.“We wanted to create a safe space within the school today so people could be together,” said Shari Schwartz-Maltz. “It’s also just a place for everybody to come together.”Fallon’s teachers were also at the school paying tribute to their student.“Her plan was to become a mental health nurse,” said Anthony Parise, Fallon’s English teacher. “Knowing what I know of Reese, she would have been an exceptional nurse, because she was a natural caregiver.”Another teacher, Mark Steel, and his wife, Julie, set up an online fundraising campaign to raise money for a scholarship in Fallon’s name. By Tuesday afternoon, it had raised four times its initial goal of $5,000.“Our idea was that we’d give the scholarship out annually to a Malvern Collegiate graduate who was going into a nursing program, because Reese was so excited and so proud to do that,” Julie Steel said, biting back tears. “She would have been an incredible nurse.”Fallon’s family has said it is devastated by the teen’s death and has asked for privacy.last_img read more

South Africa urges progress at UN towards more democratic expanded Security Council

“Given its mandate, the Council has to be legitimate, democratic and transparent. Its current composition has a propensity for deadlock and paralysis even in the face of crisis,” President Zuma said during the General Assembly’s high-level General Debate. “It remains unrepresentative and undemocratic in both its composition and decision-making.” The 15-member Council currently consists of five permanent members with veto power – China, France, Russia, United Kingdom and United States – and 10 non-permanent members, with no veto, are elected for two-year terms. Some countries have argued that this structure does not represent the realities of today’s world, and other leaders addressing the General Debate on Tuesday made similar calls to President Zuma.Key issues under discussion in the intergovernmental negotiations on Council reform are the category of membership, the question of veto, regional representation, the size of an enlarged Council, and the Council’s working methods and its relationship with the Assembly.“The UN faces immense pressure when the world sees the unprecedented loss of lives as it is happening in Africa and the Middle East,” the South African President said. “It is of concern when it appears as if the United Nations is unable to act and assist, and when it comes across as paralyzed in certain instances, due to the actions of some Member States.”“We have seen a divided Security Council unable to muster the collective courage to say ‘no more’ to warring parties in the interest of peace,” he added. “This brings to the fore the need to continue and deepen the reform of the United Nations and its organs to make it agile and nimble in addressing the contemporary challenges facing humanity.” The President called for “more meaningful” representation of Africa in the Council, noting that about 70 per cent of the 15-member body’s agenda consists of issues from the continent. “The Security Council has to be expanded in both categories, with at least two seats for Africa in the permanent category and five in the non-permanent category,” he stated.In addition to seats for the continent in its composition, the UN should also recognize fully and appreciate the role of regional organizations working with the UN in conflict management and resolution, he noted, urging closer collaboration with the African Union. The South African leaders also said that, to promote the peaceful settlement of disputes, the Council should carry out its Charter mandate “within the confines of international law,” adding that any Member State or international body that implements the Council’s resolutions should be accountable to it. “This will ensure that we avoid the abuse of internationally agreed concepts like Responsibility to Protect and the Protection of Civilians. These principles must not be used to, amongst other things, justify the notion of regime change,” President Zuma said.He added, “These concepts exist to prevent mass atrocities, war crimes, genocide and ethnic cleansing. We should continue the debate on these principles in order to develop norms and standards for accountability when actions are taken.”In his meeting with President Zuma today, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon expressed appreciation for South Africa’s leadership role on some key African issues. Among other topics, the two men noted their deep concern about the situation in the West Africa’s Sahel region, especially northern Mali, and the need for the international community to play a bigger role in resolving the problems in the affected countries. Along with the South African President, scores of heads of State and government and other high-level officials are presenting their views and comments on issues of individual national and international relevance at the Assembly’s General Debate, which ends on 1 October. read more

Avast sees single software license used illegally 774651 times

first_imgProtecting your computer from malicious activity for free is easier than it has ever been. But you can guarantee if a license for a paid-for security suite appears online, some users are going to download it.In the case of Avast!, a single software license originally only meant to cover a 14-PC business operation, made its way on to the Internet and started spreading. Rather than killing the license code, the team at Avast decided to watch what happened and how many users would break the law by using it. The results are astonishing.Over the course of 18 months that single Avast! Pro license was shared and used on 744,651 different machines. At the current cost of $34.95 per pro license, that’s total lost revenue in the region of $27,074,052.45.Rather than take action or seek compensation, Avast is attempting to take the high ground here by contacting each of those users and giving them a choice. A notice is being issued telling them the software is illegal, but then an option is given to buy a license or switch to using the free version of Avast!According to Avast spokesman Lyle Frink, it’s working. Some, not all, do seem to be making the switch, although Avast won’t share the figures of how many and to which version of its security solutions.Read more at PC ProMatthew’s OpinionI’m surprised they let this license run for so long. Six months in I would have been reaching for the termination button and sending out alerts.You can’t count all those users taking advantage of the license as lost revenue, like the music industry does with song downloads. The Avast! Pro license was there to be used, so people used it. If it hadn’t been on P2P sites then the vast majority of users would have gone elsewhere for protection.You don’t need to spend any money to keep your machine protected, especially if you run Windows. Microsoft offers you a firewall as part of the Windows default install now, and Microsoft Security Essentials anti-virus software is free. Don’t like MSE? Then try one of the plethora of other free options even if some do have some major failings sometimes.last_img read more

The language ambassador

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram It was a fight for Claire Fassoulidis to study Greek in years 11 and 12; a fight that she took on impetuously. Due to lack of numbers in the subject, the community school she was attending faced the closure of the subject. But that wasn’t going to deter Claire. Not only did she fight, but she studied both Modern Greek subjects and not only scored 100 per cent but came first place in New South Wales for her Modern Greek studies. And in year 12, she was given another blow when her grandmother died. Her grandmother – who lived in Greece – was the only relative that Claire could speak with to practice her language on. “It was a tough time then,” Claire tells Neos Kosmos, “to study and grieve all at once; my grandmother always supported me throughout my Greek studies.” All these challenges, battles and adversities that the young girl was faced with only made her more determined to not only succeed, but to pass that knowledge and fight to fellow students. After she completed her HSC, Claire became involved in helping other students who couldn’t speak Greek. Many of these students’ parents were Australian born with Greek-born grandparents. “I had one student who came to me and only could say yiasou ti kaneis – and now we have fluent conversations about school and work,” says Claire about the work she does as a tutor. Some of the students Claire sees have no connection to the culture as she says language ties everything together. “Through learning the language they are finding out about their Greek culture more than just learning syntax and grammar – they are revealing their cultural identity.” Her work as a tutor, she says, makes her feel as though she’s a ‘young ambassador’ for the Greek language and culture, and that it’s her duty to her students in her area. Some of the concerns her students have is the confidence in their oral exam. “My job is to help students think on the spot to become more confident, so they are learning how to communicate to the examiner, how to express ideas regardless of how much stress you are experiencing at the time,” says Claire. She adds that having just completed her HSC, and still studying at a university level – Claire is currently studying physiotherapy – she can empathise with her students, and they can also relate to her, giving her an advantage over teachers. “I want to set an example that if you try hard enough you will reach the point where hard work does pay off,” she says, “Results are not given they are earned.” If you would like to contact Claire regarding tutoring you can do so by visiting St Mary’s Tutoring Academy www.facebook.com/StMarysTutoringAcademy or calling 0434 380 148.last_img read more

La sonde Cassini survole Hypérion

first_imgLa sonde Cassini survole HypérionDans un communiqué, la NASA annonce que la sonde Cassini a pris des images inédites d’Hypérion, une lune de Saturne à la forme étrange qu’elle a survolée jeudi dernier.Le 25 août, la sonde Cassini a photographié Hypérion, l’une des lunes de Saturne, durant son survol. Les images, prises sur le vif à 25.000 kilomètres de distance laissent apercevoir de nombreux cratères. Mais il s’agit là de la seconde approche de cet astre de 270 kilomètres après la première qui avait eu lieu le 26 septembre 2005, à 500 kilomètres au-dessus de sa surface.Il faut dire que Hypérion est une petite lune assez particulière. Outre sa surface irrégulière, elle tourne de façon chaotique. Il était donc presque impossible pour les scientifiques de prévoir avec exactitude quelles images seraient prises par la sonde au cours de son passage.Cependant, la chance aidant, Cassini a pu observer de nouveaux territoires, rapporte la NASA dans un communiqué. Ces données devraient permettre aux ingénieurs d’effectuer des mesures plus précises de cette lune, notamment en ce qui concerne sa luminosité variable et les composants de sa surface.À lire aussiSpaceX : un satellite d’Elon Musk manque d’entrer en collision avec un satellite de l’ESALe prochain survol de Cassini au-dessus d’Hypérion est prévu pour le 16 septembre prochain, à une distance estimée à 58.000 kilomètres.

Protesters rally for Haitian nationals to remain in US

first_imgOAKLAND PARK, FLA. (WSVN) – Members of South Florida’s Haitian community took to the streets of Oakland Park, Sunday afternoon, in support of Haitian nationals’ ability to remain in the Unites States legally.Standing outside the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Building, located at 4451 N.W. 31st Ave., protesters urged the Department of Homeland Security to extend temporary protected status for thousands of Haitians who fled their country after the deadly 2010 earthquake.Mae Smith with the St. George Civic Association worries that families will be separated if the Trump administration does not renew the immigration designation that allows thousands of Haitians living in the U.S. to remain in the country.“The one thing that compels me to come out here more than anything is the threat of children being separated from their parents. This is something everyone should have a problem with,” said Smith.Guithele Ruiz-Nicoles with the Haitian American Democratic Club of Broward echoed Smith’s concerns. “These people are human. They contribute to the economy here, they have homes, they have children in school who were born here,” she said. “By deporting the parents, we have a group of children who will have no parents.”TPS was granted by the Obama administration in the wake of the earthquake, which claimed hundreds of thousands of lives in the Caribbean country. It allows Haitians to live and work freely in the U.S.Supporters said the Haitian community is vital to South Florida because of their contributions to the economy and the area’s diverse culture.

Monday, ahead of KBIS 2019, LG announced plans to integrate Tovala IQ technology into its smart ovens and ranges.tovala-still-0The Tovala countertop oven is now in its second generation. Vanessa Salas/CNET Tovala’s countertop oven recognizes Tovala brand meal kits or frozen food items from Trader Joes when you hold the barcode up to the oven’s scanner. Tovala Meals are sold via Tovala’s website as weekly subscriptions ranging from three to 12 meals per week at $12 each. That isn’t cheap, but the meals we tested while reviewing Tovala’s latest oven tasted good and came in large portions.With the LG smart oven integration, you will scan the meal’s barcode on your mobile device’s Tovala app, then place the meal in the oven and press start in the app. From there, the LG smart oven or range automatically preheats and cycles through the temperatures and cooking techniques specific to that meal.LG works with several other recipe and smart cooking partners, including Innit, SideChef and Drop. Those platforms allow users to curate personalized meals from recipes available via the apps and send cooking instructions to their LG range or oven. Innit is coming to LG’s Wi-Fi enabled luxury line, Signature Kitchen Suite, this year.There’s no word yet on the pricing or availability of LG’s new Tovala feature, highlighted in the LG LWC3063BD double wall oven.

Samsung to Launch Foldable Phone in 2019

first_imgSamsung used its developer conference in San Francisco Wednesday to officially announce that it will launch a foldable smartphone some time in 2019. The phone is using the company’s own new Infinity Flex display, which allows it to be folded and unfolded repeatedly without wear and tear.“When it’s open, it’s a tablet, offering a big-screen experience,” said Samsung vice president of mobile marketing Justin Denison. “When it’s closed, it’s a phone that fits neatly inside your pocket.”Denison showed off a phone featuring the new display technology on stage, which featured a 7.3-inch display when unfolded. However, the device itself was camouflaged to hide key design aspects. The company also didn’t offer any branding  or price point for the new phone, and Denison didn’t want to commit to a firm launch date, instead just saying that the company would begin mass production “in the coming months.” ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

The URL is www.webpax.com.The industry-standard format for medical images is DICOM. Viewing of DICOM-formatted medical images traditionally requires dedicated workstations reportedly costing thousands of dollars, which in turn are connected to PACS systems costing hundreds of thousands more, said HeartIT. All of this makes it practically impossible for the average patient to view images of their own body. Today, however, Web 2.0 technologies are empowering patients with the ability to manage their own electronic medical records (EMR).”Many patients don’t realize that they have a legal right to request copies of their medical images,” said Paul Cardullo, HeartIT’s director of software development. “All they need to do is ask their doctor for a CD with their images in the standard DICOM format and upload them from any PC or Macintosh computer. Patients can then decide whether or not to allow other people to view their images in a Web browser and/or download the DICOM data to another part of the world.”Security on www.webpax.com is based on the same technologies used for online banking, said HeartIT. As an added precaution, private information such as names and dates are automatically removed from the DICOM header during uploading.Formed in 2000, HeartIT provides Web-based medical image management services and computing systems to large hospitals and regional health care systems, as well as drug and device companies sponsoring multicenter clinical trials.
