Minister Gets Assurances On Fishing Licence Transfers

first_imgFisherman will still be able to transfer commercial licences in an updated Fisheries Act, the province says. In late April, Ron Chisholm, Minster of Fisheries and Aquaculture, met with federal Fisheries Minister Loyola Hearn to discuss Nova Scotia fishermen’s concerns about Bill C-45, an update to the fisheries act. “In a letter minister Hearn sent me yesterday, he assured me that this clause is identical to what exists today in the fisheries regulations,” said Mr. Chisholm. “It’s DFO’s practice to re-issue licences, when fishermen decide to retire, to eligible fishermen who are recommended. The federal minister assured me this practice will continue, as long as the recommended person is eligible.” “Mr. Hearn has assured me that interested parties will have an opportunity to provide information directly to department staff, as well as at the committee level, on other aspects of Bill C-45,” said Mr. Chisholm. “It’s important that the views of Nova Scotia’s fishing community are known, and that any new legislation reflects the needs of the industry it regulates.” Public consultation dates and locations will be announced at a later date.last_img read more

Djibouti calls on Security Council to act to resolve border dispute with

Roble Olhaye, Djibouti’s Permanent Representative to the UN, told the final day of the General Assembly’s annual high-level segment that the Council needs to use “all means at its disposal” to end the stand-off between the African neighbours.In June last year, following weeks of rising tensions and military build-up, the two countries’ armed forces clashed over an un-demarcated area in the Red Sea known as Doumeira, killing 35 people and leaving dozens of others wounded.This January the Council adopted a resolution demanding that Eritrea pull its forces from the disputed area and cooperate with diplomatic initiatives, and welcoming Djibouti’s withdrawal of its forces to its positions before the dispute.A UN fact-finding mission sent to the region after the dispute flared was welcomed by Djibouti but blocked by Eritrea, which refused to meet with it or with any envoy of Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who offered to use his good offices to help resolve the issue.Today, Mr. Olhaye called for the row over Doumeira – which he noted is “situated in one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world” – to be resolved along the lines of the Council resolution, “without further equivocation, confusion and deliberate procrastination.” “Inaction sets a dangerous precedent which others will surely follow in the future – deny and refuse to cooperate! The Council must not appear to be appeasing Eritrea indefinitely; this is a dangerous and an unpredictable regime that has not shown so far any respect to international norms and behaviour.”Exercising his right of reply, an Eritrean delegate told the Assembly later today that his country “doesn’t have territorial ambitions” and it has not occupied land belonging to Djibouti. He also said that Djibouti had presented a one-sided view of the situation.Responding further, a delegate from Djibouti said Eritrea had demonstrated a pattern of military aggression in the region since it gained independence in 1993, and accused the country of a lack of cooperation with any efforts to resolve the dispute over Doumeira. 29 September 2009The Security Council must take steps to solve the border dispute between Djibouti and Eritrea, Djibouti said today, warning that if the row is allowed to fester it will set a dangerous precedent for other crises around the world. read more

Syria As airstrikes hit Raqqa UN sounds alarm over plight of civilians

“The humanitarian situation in Al-Raqqa governorate remains dire, with the majority of the population reportedly facing critical problems in meeting their immediate needs,” Alessandra Vellucci, Director of the UN Nations Information Service in Geneva on behalf of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) told reporters at today’s regular press briefing. She also reiterated the UN’s call for unconditional, unimpeded and sustained access to those affected by the fighting in Raqqa, and more broadly to the 4.5 million who are still in hard-to-reach areas across the war-torn country.Turning to the internally displaced (IDPs), she pointed out that more than 160,000 people have been displaced since 1 May with the situation on the ground remaining fluid. There are some 87,200 in the Ar-Raqqa governorate; nearly 37,000 in Aleppo; over 33,400 in Idlib; and smaller numbers in Hama, Deir-ez-Zor and Homs. “On 3 June, three internally displaced people, including a pregnant woman, had been reportedly killed by a landmine. On 4 June, airstrikes on the al-Mashlab neighbourhood in Raqqa city had reportedly resulted in the destruction of two schools while mortar shelling in the vicinity of another school injured several people,” she said. Ms. Vellucci stated that since March, UN agencies continued to provide multi-sectoral humanitarian assistance through their local partners – such as food, medical treatment and vaccinations throughout Raqqa, including IDPs in camps. Some 60,000 Syrian refugees in Lebanon in Jordan could lose assistanceFor its part, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) sounded the alarm that humanitarian programmes supporting Syrian refugees and their host communities are quickly running out of resources.Citing critical gaps in Lebanon and Jordan, UNHCR spokesperson Andrej Mahecic told journalists in Geneva that vital parts of its response to Syrian refugees were critically underfunded. “Despite generous pledges, humanitarian programmes in support of Syrian refugee and communities hosting them are quickly running out of resources. The situation is most dramatic in Lebanon and Jordan where a number of direct cash assistance activities could dry up in less than four weeks,” he said. Those who fled to Jordan face stark challenges. “Refugees tell our staff that UNHCR monthly cash support means a meal a day, a better roof, their dignity. Now they fear losing everything. Many say would prefer to go back to Syria to die if they stop receiving this assistance,” continued Mr. Mahecic. In Lebanon, where UNHCR urgently needs $116 million, direct cash assistance programmes for refugees will be affected first. “These include a lifeline of multi-purpose cash for 30,000 Syrian refugee families, a winter cash assistance for two months for another 174,000 families and protection cash assistance for 1,500 refugee households to help them overcome periods of hardship,” he continued. “The funding gap also jeopardises 65,000 life-saving secondary health care interventions and support to UNHCR’s and the Lebanese Authorities’ capacity to issue and renew documentation for refugees, following a recent decision to waive the residency renewal fees which most refugees could not afford,” Mr. Mahecic added. Mid-way through this year, the $4.6 billion inter-agency appeal to meet the immediate humanitarian needs of Syrian refugees across the Middle East and North Africa is only 18 per cent funded. read more

UN launches new global data collection tool to help reduce disaster losses

“It is impossible to prevent disasters and to manage risk if a country is not measuring its disaster losses, particularly at the local level, for both small-scale and large-scale events,” said the Secretary-General’s newly appointed Special Representative of the for Disaster Risk Reduction, Mami Mizutori.“Such losses are a great setback for efforts to eradicate poverty,” she added.The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction – the first major agreement of the post-2015 development agenda – launched its online tool: The Sendai Framework Monitor.This tool captures data on the achievement of the Framework’s five targets of reducing mortality from disasters; the numbers of disaster affected people; economic losses; and reducing damage to critical infrastructure; along with recording the number of countries with national and local strategies for disaster risk reduction.“The Sendai Framework Monitor will provide inputs to the first report on achieving progress on implementing the Sustainable Development Goals[SDGs] in July,” Ms. Mizutori said in a statement marking the launch.In a world where climate change and extreme weather events contribute to pushing 26 million people into poverty every year, she underscored “improving how we manage risk is vital and this requires a deeper understanding of where these losses are occurring and not just for major internationally recorded events.”“The silent, small-recurring events, such as floods and droughts can take a huge toll on communities which lack essential health services and other coping capacities,” she concluded. read more

Indians sign elite starter Carlos Carrasco to 4year deal

CLEVELAND — The Indians have signed starter Carlos Carrasco to a four-year contract extension through the 2022 season.Carrasco’s deal includes a club option for 2023. Financial terms were not immediately available.The right-hander went 17-10 with a 3.38 ERA in 30 starts last season for the AL Central champions. He finished with a career-high 231 strikeouts as the Indians became the first team to have four pitchers reach 200 strikeouts in the same season.The 31-year-old Carrasco has developed into one of the league’s elite starters, and the Indians wanted to lock him up for the future.Cleveland is still toying with trading either Corey Kluber or Trevor Bauer to address their outfield needs.Carrasco is 79-62 with a 3.71 ERA in 207 career games. The Indians acquired him from Philadelphia in the July 2009 blockbuster that involved ace Cliff Lee.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_SportsTom Withers, The Associated Press read more

Texting on the move turns your walk into an ungainly lollop

first_imgTextingon the move may sometimes be essential, but be warned, it turns your gait into an ungainly lollop, scientists have found.Researchers from Anglia Ruskin University found texters adopt a cautious and exaggerated stepping strategy to avoid tripping over hazards.Subjects were fitted with eye trackers to record where they looked and motion analysis sensors to record how they walked as they used a phone while negotiating a floor-based obstacle similar in height to a roadside kerb.They found all phone use, whether texting, phoning or scrawling through contacts, causes users to look less frequently and for less time at the obstacle on the ground.They adopt a cautious strategy, it said, which involves lifting their lead foot higher and slower over the obstacle to reduce the risk of tripping.Lead author Dr Matthew Timmis, senior lecturer in sport and exercise science at Anglia Ruskin, said: “We found that using a phone means we look less frequently, and for less time, at the ground, but we adapt our visual search behaviour and our style of walking so we’re able to negotiate static obstacles in a safe manner.“This results in phone users adopting a slow and exaggerated stepping action. Our findings indicate that phone users adopt a cautious approach when faced with fixed objects on the ground. Similar, but less extreme, results are seen when reading texts and talking on the phone.It is thought that writing a text may increase visual attention demands, as people look at the keypad to type as well as look at the screen to read what is being written, to ensure it is correct.Last year researchers at the University of Delaware found that when distracted by dialling numbers, volunteers began to walk with strange exaggerated strides, their knees bending to peak position on each step, and their ankles fully flexed, as it to give themselves as much chance as possible at stepping over tripping hazards.The researchers say that people unconsciously adopt the posture because their body senses that they are at greater risk of falling over.The large, exaggerated movements potentially help them to negotiate crowds and compensate for their diminished vision.The University of Bath also recently found that texters had developed a protective shuffle that prevents them bumping into obstacles, or tripping over hazards.They discovered that it took those texting 26 per cent longer to complete a walking task compared to those who were not distracted by their phones.

People subconsciously change their walk to compensate for their reduced vision  The problem of text-walkers has become such a problem that cities such as Antwerp in Belgium, has introduced ‘text-walking lanes’ so that they do not irritate or endanger other pedestrians.The scheme is the brainchild of a local mobile phone business, Mlab, which says many smartphones are broken in collisions between pedestrians.China has already started segregating footpaths with special lanes for those using their phones.Initiatives are also being introduced in a number of European countries to place fixed warnings on the ground to alert pedestrians to the presence of roads and tram tracks.In the study, published in the journal PLOS ONE, the relative amount of time spent looking at the obstacle reduced by up to 61 per cent  when using a phone.The study found that writing a text message resulted in the greatest adaptations in visual search behaviour and walking style, or gait, compared to reading texts or talking on a phone. Texting lanes have been instated in some cities center_img People subconsciously change their walk to compensate for their reduced vision Credit:Getty  “Accidents are likely to be the result of objects suddenly appearing that phone users were not aware of, for example other pedestrians or vehicles.” When writing a text the lead foot is 18 per cent higher while clearing the obstacle compared to not using a phone, and is 40 per cent slower.

Alex White says its time to tell the IMF that enough is

first_img“ENOUGH IS ENOUGH”. That is the message Labour leader hopeful Alex White was conveying today at the Labour Party leadership hustings in Portlaoise.Hustings The Minister for State at the Department of Health was scathing in his speech about the IMF saying that earlier this week “we were treated to another lecture in fiscal orthodoxy by our friends at the IMF in Washington”.He added:“We were told once again that we should take 2 billion out of our economy in the 2015 budget. In the rarified world of the IMF this counts as a ‘fiscal adjustment’. Those of us who live in this country know the reality behind those anodyne words.”White said that a €2 billion “adjustment” means more cuts in public services, more taxes and charges for Irish people and more suffering and distress.He told the crowd in no uncertain terms that if he is to be elected the next leader of the Labour Party, they will take no more “sanctimonious lectures” from the IMF.“Let me be clear about this once again. If I am elected as leader of this Party there will be no more “adjustment” of €2 billion or anything close to it,” he said, adding:Enough is enough.“It would be better – much better – if the IMF were to give us some real assistance rather than sanctimonious lectures. And they could start with the excessive interest rates they are currently charging,” said White.Speaking about the beating that Labour got in the local elections, White said the party suffered a “bruising” a few weeks ago.He said the party should not assume that the numbers they lost in the local elections will return to them, stating that the “stark truth” is that they will only come back to Labour if they respond appropriately to the message the electorate gave them in May.… the message was stark, very stark. Quite simply they told us to: Change, or move off the stage…He added: We need to change our message; we need to change the way we do things; we need to change the image we present to the electorate.That process of change will take time. It will not happen overnight.But we have the opportunity to start that process of change when we elect a new leader on 4 July next.

Le tourisme spatial constituetil une menace climatique

first_imgLe tourisme spatial constitue-t-il une menace climatique ?Alors que le tourisme spatial est encore aujourd’hui un rêve pour beaucoup et un privilège pour les plus riches, il pourrait bientôt s’ouvrir à plusieurs milliers de millionnaires. Pour autant, un article explique que ce nouveau loisir pourrait bien entraîner un véritable désastre écologique.A l’heure actuelle, le tourisme spatial n’est pas encore devenu un véritable loisir, mais plutôt une activité réservée à une poignée de milliardaires. Pour autant Sylvestre Huet, un journaliste de Libération, explique que cette activité pourrait bientôt s’ouvrir à plusieurs milliers de millionnaires qui auraient, s’ils le souhaitent, l’occasion d’effectuer quelques voyages à près de 100 kilomètres d’altitude. Et le Geophysical research letters de tirer la sonnette d’alarme dans l’un de ses articles, en expliquant que si tel est le cas, ce nouveau loisir pour personnes fortunées pourrait bien être un véritable désastre écologique.Ainsi, la revue indique que le tourisme spatial pourrait porter gravement à conséquence concernant le changement climatique. Plusieurs scientifiques ont ainsi étudié et imaginé les rythmes de vols dans l’espace, les carburants nécessaires et les moteurs qui pourraient être utilisés, parvenant à la conclusion que dix ans de vols pourraient être aussi polluants que l’ensemble des vols d’avion jusqu’à présent.Le 30 octobre 2010 à 16:37 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Controverse quand Homo sapiens estil sorti dAfrique pour coloniser lAsie

first_imgControverse : quand Homo sapiens est-il sorti d’Afrique pour coloniser l’Asie ?Au terme d’une étude à la fois génétique et archéologique, des chercheurs britanniques, confirment leur hypothèse de 2005, selon laquelle la toute première migration Afrique-Asie de l’Homme anatomiquement moderne ne remonterait pas au-delà de -60.000 ans.    “Une des choses que nous n’avions pas en 2005, c’était ces nombreux éléments provenant de l’Inde en termes de séquences mitochondriales. Maintenant, avec tous ces gens qui font du séquençage et déposent leurs résultats dans les bases de données, il y a environ 1.000 séquences pour l’Inde”, commence le Pr Martin Richards, de l’Université de Huddersfield (Royaume-Uni). Cette année-là, ce spécialiste avait dirigé une première étude pour estimer la date à laquelle les premiers migrants de notre espèce, Homo sapiens, quittant leur berceau africain, étaient arrivés en Asie du Sud.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Avec des collègues des universités de Cambridge, d’Édimbourg et d’York, et grâce notamment à ce nouvel apport de données indiennes, il a récemment mené une nouvelle étude sur ce thème, faisant, comme en 2005, parler “l’horloge moléculaire” humaine pour reconstituer les flux génétiques de notre passé à partir des données génétiques actuelles. Et il confirme sa conclusion d’il y a huit ans, à savoir qu’Homo sapiens, l’Africain, n’a arpenté l’Asie du sud qu’à partir de quelque -60.000 ans.Une confirmation archéologique “Nous pensons également que les similitudes étroites entre (…) les outils de pierre africains et indiens d’après -70 000 ans – ainsi que (…) des perles et des gravures – suggèrent que le matériel indien un peu postérieur à cette date a une source africaine”, poursuit le Pr Richards dont l’étude est publiée dans le revue PNAS. Une confirmation archéologique des données inférées par la génétique, donc, selon le chercheur, qui dirige le groupe de recherches archéogénétiques de Huddersfield.Ces conclusions réfutent celles d’une étude réalisée en 2007 par une autre équipe. Celle-ci avait découvert en Inde, sous les cendres volcaniques vielles de 74.000 ans issues d’une éruption du Mont Toba (Sumatra), des outils de pierre qu’elle attribuait à Homo sapiens. “Il y avait des gens en Inde avant l’éruption du Toba, puisqu’il existe des outils (…), mais ils auraient pu être néandertaliens – ou d’une autre population pré-moderne”, conclut pour sa part le Pr Richards.Le 13 juin 2013 à 15:11 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Destination DC visits India for the first time

first_imgDestination DC, the official destination marketing organisation for Washington, DC, recently visited India in its first direct effort to market the U.S. capital to the South Asian country. The delegation in partnership with Etihad Airways, Washington Dulles International Airport and U.S. Travel Association visited Hyderabad, Mumbai and New Delhi.According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, nearly 1.13 million Indian travellers visited the country in 2015, which is forecasted to increase 25.6% by 2020, to 1.41 million visitors.Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) is the world’s gateway to the U.S. capital region, is served by 39 airlines flying nonstop to over 50 international destinations around the world. The airport is a U.S. gateway served by Etihad Airways from its hub in Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates, with daily scheduled flights operated by its new generation Boeing 787 Dreamliner.Passengers flying on all Etihad Airways flights from the Indian sub-continent to the U.S. are processed through the U.S. Preclearance facility at Abu Dhabi Airport, which means they pass through all U.S. immigration and customs checks in Abu Dhabi and arrive in the U.S. as domestic passengers.Last year Washington, DC welcomed 80,000 visitors from India, making it the sixth largest overseas market for DC. Visitation from India to DC has grown 40% since 2013 when it ranked ninth. Capital Region USA, the region encompassing Washington, DC, Virginia and Maryland, tells a similar story with an even greater rise. Indian visitation to the region has increased 70% and rose from the ninth overseas market in 2013 to the fourth in 2015.“India is a strong and emerging market for Washington, DC and the region with lots of potential in terms of leisure travel and business development,” said Destination DC President and CEO Elliott Ferguson. “In 2015, one out of every 10 Indian visitors to the U.S. visited the capital region.”As part of the mission, the delegation also promoted attending IPW in Washington, DC, June 3-7, 2017. Hosted by U.S. Travel Association, IPW is the travel industry’s premier international marketplace and the largest generator of travel to the U.S. The five-day trade show would take place in Washington, DC for the very first time in the event’s 40-plus year history.last_img read more

biggest namesMary JSenate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign over reports that he met with the Russian ambassador during the presidential campaign Speaking at a press conference on Capitol Hill the New York Democrat said that Sessions was not forthcoming about his meetings when he testified at his confirmation hearing about contacts with Russia “Because the Department of Justice should be above reproach for the good of the country Attorney General Sessions should resign” he said Read the complete remarks from Schumer’s press conference SCHUMER: OK Good morning everyone Sorry I’m late All right Last night when I read the revelations regarding Attorney General Sessions’ contact with the Russian ambassador and his decision to mislead Congress about those contacts I felt a knot in the pit of my stomach I worried about the future of our country with foreign influence in our elections It goes to the very wellspring of our democracy For weeks I have said that Attorney General Sessions needs to recuse himself from any investigation into contact between the president and his associates on the campaign and transition and Russia For weeks I made clear that I believe Attorney General Sessions’ close relationship with the Trump campaign requires that he recuse himself from the executive branch investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia It’s a matter of Department of Justice guidelines that I’ve read to you several times that are very clear The guidelines are clear as day Yet Attorney General Sessions has demurred The information reported last night makes it clear beyond the shadow of a doubt that Attorney General Sessions cannot possibly lead an investigation into Russian interference in our elections or come anywhere near it With these revelations he may very well become the subject of it It would be of Alice in Wonderland quality if this administration were to sanction him to investigate himself Recusal should have been given but this goes beyond that He had weeks — Attorney General Sessions had weeks to correct the record that he made before the Judiciary Committee but he let the record stand There cannot be even the scintilla of doubt about the impartiality and fairness of the attorney general the top law enforcement official of the land After this it’s clear Attorney General Sessions does not meet that test Because the Department of Justice should be above reproach for the good of the country Attorney General Sessions should resign But whatever one’s views are on resignation the most important thing we must do is ensure the integrity of the investigation Has it already been compromised What can we do to ensure it moves forward in a way that ultimately leads to the unvarnished truth To that end I am calling on three things — sorry To that end I am calling for three things today SCHUMER: First the Justice Department must immediately appoint a special prosecutor Given that Attorney General Sessions’ impartiality is compromised that responsibility will fall to the Acting Deputy Attorney General Dana Boente who is a career civil servant originally appointed US attorney by President Obama It is incumbent upon the acting deputy attorney general to select a special prosecutor an individual who is beyond reproach completely impartial without any significant ties to either political party The choice for special prosecutor will be scrutinized Even the hint of partiality in that choice even the hint that this person will not be able to get to the bottom of these troubling questions would be disqualifying The prosecutor must be of great experience and unimpeachable impartiality Now this is not just common sense This is what the Justice Department regulations require They say that a special counsel should be appointed when a standard investigation quote these are the — the Justice Department’s words when a standard investigation would quote “Present a conflict of interest for the department or other extraordinary circumstances and it would be in the public interest to appoint an outside special council” The regulations also require that a special council be a lawyer with a reputation for integrity and impartial decision-making There cannot even be the shred of a connection between the attorney general Mr Sessions and this Department of Justice investigation into the events of 2016 Second if the Justice Department drags its feet and refuses to appoint a special prosecutor or selects someone with insufficient independence there is another route We will then urge Senator McConnell and Speaker Ryan to work with Democrats to create a new and improved version of the Independent Counsel Law which would give a three-judge panel the authority to appoint an independent counsel This was a law that was on the books put in place after Watergate to avoid a repeat of events like the Saturday Night Massacre It was designed for this purpose Unfortunately it was not drafted with enough constraints Congress allowed the authority to expire after Ken Starr’s investigation into Whitewater went out of control Ken Starr went too far He tested the boundaries of the authority he was given The law the original Independent Counsel Law went too far Sorry — the law the Independent Counsel Law was not drafted tightly enough But in this case cognizant and wary of this history we would work to craft a narrow authority with specific guidelines for this investigation to prevent this from becoming a political witch hunt We hope that if the administration fails in its responsibility that Senator McConnell and Speaker Ryan will rise to theirs SCHUMER: Finally third the inspector general of the Department of Justice must immediately begin an investigation into the attorney general’s involvement in this matter thus far to discover if the investigation has already been compromised The — the inspector general doesn’t need any permission from either anyone in the administration or the Congress and he should go forward immediately We know the attorney general met with the president several weeks ago What did they discuss Have there been other contacts between the president or senior administration officials and the attorney general regarding this matter Have there been any attempts to interfere with the investigation in any way Have the AG or his close associates personally managed the work of career officials at the Department of Justice or FBI in the course of the investigation The inspector general has the ability the right and the obligation to find out answers to these questions and more The revelations that we learned about last night are extremely troubling and raise even more questions about the president and his associates’ contacts with Russia Did the president know about the meetings between then-Senator Sessions and the Russian ambassador Were these the only two meetings between the attorney — the now-attorney general and the Russian ambassador or other Russian officials Did the attorney general disclose these meetings during the FBI background check for his nomination There has been revelation after revelation mistruth after mistruth stories shifting like quicksand If there is truly no there there why won’t they tell the truth The bottom line is we have an obligation to get to the truth We must evaluate the scope of Russia’s interference in our elections and assess if agents of their government have penetrated to the highest level of our government Nothing less than the sanctity of our dear democratic process the primacy of rule of law and the integrity of our executive branch is at stake We now know the only way that this will happen is if an independent impartial special prosecutor who has no attachment to this administration conducts this investigation If the administration is unwilling or unable to manage that Congress should reinstitute the law allowing us to bring in a special counsel to do it for them Ready for your questions Yes just one QUESTION: Leader Schumer why isn’t it enough for him to recuse himself Why does he have to resign SCHUMER: Look the attorney general is the chief law enforcement officer of the land and already his integrity and independence have been questioned It would be better for the country if he’d resign QUESTION: But is there something wrong… SCHUMER: The main point I am making here is we need an investigation to get to the bottom of this Better for the country if he resigns but let’s get a real investigation going What were you gonna say QUESTION: I was just gonna say is there something inappropriate about a senator meeting with the Russian ambassador SCHUMER: There’s nothing inappropriate with a senator meeting with the Russian ambassador There is something very inappropriate to dramatically mislead Congress SCHUMER: He said he didn’t remember afterwards But it was in the record for weeks afterwards and you can be sure he was thoroughly briefed for this hearing It was obvious which — with everything that was swirling about that this question would come up It’s not a question of — you wonder about “I didn’t remember” Yes in the back QUESTION: I wonder if I could follow up on that The question that Senator Franken asked Senator Sessions at the time has been replayed over and over on cable (inaudible) (inaudible) not nebulous enough (inaudible)… SCHUMER: Look… QUESTION: … (inaudible) crystal clear that (inaudible)… SCHUMER: No QUESTION: … (inaudible) ever (inaudible) Russians SCHUMER: Look there is enough doubt about whether Senator Sessions told the truth at his hearing to have an investigation of it And the standard for remaining attorney general and certainly for conducting investigations is not just did you break the law You have to be above reproach Yes QUESTION: During the 2016 campaign Senators Manchin McCaskill other Senate Democrats have met with the Russian ambassador How would you characterize that Is that a level of concern to you SCHUMER: No There’s nothing wrong with meeting with the Russian ambassador The question that just keeps coming up again and again and again with this investigation is: If there was nothing wrong why didn’t you come clean and tell the whole truth QUESTION: (inaudible) do you think that Senator Sessions lied to Congress I mean it’s perjury (inaudible) SCHUMER: OK I am not a — I am not a legal expert on perjury And I leave that to the experts It was definitely extremely misleading to say the least as to what he did And what bothers me just as much is every nominee goes through the record afterwards and they make corrections If the next day he would have said I forgot and here’s what I said it’s a lot different than letting the record stand especially with all the questions swirling about No — next Go ahead (CROSSTALK) QUESTION: The White House says that Jeff Sessions met with the ambassador in an official capacity as a member of the Senate Arms Services Committee They say that’s consistent with his testimony Can it be (inaudible) SCHUMER: I don’t think that is the way most people were interpret it And that’s why we need to have a thorough investigation QUESTION: They also say (inaudible) SCHUMER: Yes (CROSSTALK) SCHUMER: I didn’t hear the (inaudible) (CROSSTALK) SCHUMER: Is a what QUESTION: (inaudible) SCHUMER: They say that about everything It’s getting tired If they’re interested in the truth and they’re not worried about the truth they know how to get to the bottom of it in a convincing way QUESTION: Senator Schumer you are a member of the Gang of Eight (inaudible) and several of your colleagues (inaudible) in the last couple of days and they have declared we’ve seen no evidence that you know any of these contacts between the Russian campaign — excuse me — the Russians and the Trump campaign ever happened I’m wondering have you seen (inaudible) SCHUMER: I am not commenting on anything I heard as part of the Gang of Eight Next question QUESTION: (inaudible) investigation (inaudible) lied before Congress (inaudible) involved (inaudible) And do you — do you expect (inaudible) involved (inaudible) and are you requesting the FBI to investigate (inaudible) SCHUMER: We’ll wait As I said I think we need a special prosecutor to look into all of these allegations That is the right way to go I was heartened to hear now that a few Republicans have evidently called for this And the longer they all delay the worse it will be for the country and for them Last question QUESTION: (inaudible) the Russians of course (inaudible) characterization (inaudible) reports that the Russian ambassador was somehow involved in recruiting spies Do you have anything to say about that SCHUMER: No that’s not the point The point here is Jeff Sessions should have said he met with the ambassador when questioned about it He could have then said what happened at the meeting Nobody knows QUESTION: (inaudible) Dana Boente (inaudible) Are you OK with that SCHUMER: No because he’s in a chain of command First of all will Sessions still be in charge of the attorney general We need a special prosecutor This has to be above reproach There’s been allegation after allegation question after question A special prosecutor is what’s called for and if the administration has nothing to hide they won’t object Thank you everybody Contact us at editors@timecomWe’re just under two weeks away from the premiere of the sixth season of Game of Thrones and to

Wolff’s latest book, which has received millions of dollars from the family foundation over the past few years,D. which received a $100000 gift in 2012 Outside of faith-based organizations the family foundation has given to a host of other regional causes such as the public schools in Engelstad’s hometown of Thief River Falls In 2005 the foundation gave $300000 to the education foundation for Thief River Education FoundationIn 2012 the foundation gave $250000 to the Bottineau winter park ski center Tax filings for the year after that show a $500000-plus contribution to Grand Forks parks and in 2016 the foundation gave $500000 to the Community Violence Intervention Center of Grand ForksRange of giftsSome of the Engelstads’ regular recipients see smaller contributions in the scheme of things That might include the NAACP of which various chapters have received steady annual donations of $25000 That could also count the Nevada chapter of a national foundation for hemophiliacs a group the Engelstad foundation has regularly given $10000 per yearBut other donations can be quite heftyOver the course of its existence the foundation has given about $22 million to Opportunity Village one of Las Vegas’ largest organizations for disabled adults Opportunity Village was given $5 million in 2015 alone In the same year the Nevada-based Animal Foundation pet shelter received $45 million from the Engelstads Aside from more traditional social-welfare-focused groups the Engelstad Foundation has also contributed large sums of money to arts and culture That includes millions of dollars over the years to the Utah Shakespeare Festival as well as to the Las Vegas Smith Center for the Performing Arts For tax year 2014 alone the family gave the Shakespeare group $125 million and the performing arts center $2 millionIntersecting with many of the above categories is higher education The Engelstad Foundation has invested a great deal of its giving to programs in health sciences As one result of that the College of Southern Nevada — recipient of millions from the foundation — now features the Ralph and Betty Engelstad School of Health Sciences The family also pledged tens of millions of dollars to the former Nevada Cancer Institute That center began as a private organization was absorbed by University of California-San Diego Health and is now part of Roseman University College of Medicine an institution that would be Nevada’s first private nonprofit medical degree-granting school The Engelstad Foundation pledged $10 million to Roseman in 2017McGarry said the focus on health and specifically cancer research comes from a family origin She herself is a cancer survivor and her father died of lung cancer in 2002The foundation’s wide net of donations may have reached other schools but for much its existence its higher education focus has centered on UND and the University of Nevada Las Vegas of which McGarry is an alumnaIn 2009 the foundation endowed more than $126 million for a scholarship program at UNLV That sum has been reported as the largest active endowment in the history of the Nevada System of Higher Education The Engelstad foundation has also been a consistent supporter of the UNLV hockey program Just about a week ago the team unveiled a new locker room paid for with Engelstad dollarsThe foundation made recent headlines in Las Vegas for withdrawing a $14 million donation in response to the university president’s announced departure McGarry said the family “really endorsed our president” Len Jessup particularly in support of his work for the university’s fledgling medical school The move to pull the donation she said was aimed at the Nevada system’s board of regents“We had complete confidence in the president and said in our $14 million if you — because it was widely rumored they were trying to get rid of him — if you force him out we’ll rescind our gift” McGarry said The foundation has taken a more activist role in Nevada than it has in North Dakota As part of that McGarry said the family is now working on legislation to reconfigure the roles of the Nevada system’s chancellor and its board of regentsIt seems unlikely for now that the family will seek the same here McGarry said she knows little of the North Dakota University System or the state’s politics She’s also never met NDUS Chancellor Mark Hagerott though she found it “curious” that he’d never reached out to the family given its status as a major donor to the system’s largest universityEven with their differences McGarry drew a strong parallel to the family’s status in both statesAt UNLV she said the foundation will make good on its scholarship promises for students but “won’t do anything else” for administrators until structural changes are made to solidify the relationship between Engelstad and institution“It’s very similar to this” she said speaking of UND “we won’t do anything else with UNLV until that system changes because it’s another pit of putting money into this hole — they don’t have it they need it” The Chief Press Secretary to Governor Timipre Sylva of Bayelsa State Mr Doifie Ola has described as unfounded and baseless the allegation that his principal influenced the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) with N500million so as not to publish the name of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate Honourable Henry Seriake Dickson among contestants cleared for the February 11 2012 governorship election in the state He said the bribery allegation was far from the truth noting that “Governor Sylva believes in the rule of law and would not engage in anything to circumvent or pervert justice” Reacting to the allegation on a phone conversation with the Nigerian Tribune on Thursday in Yenagoa Ola asserted that “in political atmosphere so much stories flies around This allegation or speculation is one of such fictitious stories “All the stories that Governor Timipre Sylva went to Port Harcourt to spend money and the allegation of bribery are non issues At a time we heard that the governor spent $2million later somebody was talking about N1billion and now they said he spent over N700million to bribe INEC” Continuing Ola queried:“If Sylva is bribing somebody why didn’t he bribe the INEC to put his name in the list” NuPower Wind Farm Gupta first sent the letter to PMO in

three tacos would that be sufficient"One of the players mentioned guacamole Moran patiently explained the recent spike in avocado prices"That won’t be something we’ll have until those prices go down" she saidSeveral players nodded sadly The Twins have worked to improve the nutrition of their 175 or so minor leaguers for the past several years The opening of the year-round academy at the team’s spring complex in early 2015 greatly improved eating habits for players at Class A Fort Myers and on the Gulf Coast League TwinsThe new Boca Chica academy in the Dominican Republic which opened in January helps in that regard as wellBut the initiative has taken a noticeable leap forward this season the first since the arrival of chief baseball officer Derek Falvey and general manager Thad LevineFrom the big-league clubhouse on down sodas have been replaced by organic juices and whole milk pizza and burgers have given way to grilled chicken and baked fish Even with A-ballers like the Kernels still limited to road per diems of just $25 hot catered postgame meals are now served both at home and on the road thanks to a new agreement with Sodexo USA and nearby Coe College"It’s fun to walk in the locker room when the game is over and see what they had to eat" Kernels GM Scott Wilson said "There are still teams that travel in here with peanut butter and jelly and are old-school I would say about half of the (16) Midwest League teams do that but the Twins are trying to feed players healthier alternatives"’THE BIGGEST KEY’How much have things changed since the days when Tommy Watkins was making his way through the Twins’ minor league system The Kernels’ first-year manager laughed as he considered the question"Man we used to eat concession stand food especially when we were in E-town" said Watkins whose 12-year playing career from 1998-2009 took him through rookie-level Elizabethton Tenn "We used to go to the concession stand a lot but you don’t see that much anymore At 4:30 every afternoon the food will be here and it’s all good stuff"Although sodas may still be found at times in Watkins’ office as well as that of his coaches the commitment to proper nutrition means even the skipper finds himself policing the clubhouse for snack contraband When even cereal bars from the nearby Quaker Oats plant have been banned in favor of protein bars and shakes you know the Twins are getting serious"The food is the biggest key in just maintaining your body in good shape" slugging first baseman Lewin Diaz said through a translator "Consuming good food and having energy throughout the game is important because it’s a long season It’s a transition going from a short season to a long season so you have to play it smarter and work harder"While Diaz who received a $15 million signing bonus in 2013 has struggled at times with his weight since signing out of the Dominican at age 16 other players from impoverished backgrounds in Latin American countries traditionally send the bulk of their per diems back home to support their families That only led to cheaper fast-food choices and diminished energy levels until this recent change in policyIn addition to keeping these future Twins strong and productive throughout their first 140-game season habits are being ingrained that could carry through the rest of their playing careers After the group session her last in a tour of the Twins’ top four minor league levels Moran met individually with a number of the Kernels to help improve their nutritional habits"I love it" said Lujan a former 35th-round pick out of Westmont College in Santa Barbara Calif "Having good food here helps you out a lot throughout the long season Obviously you don’t want to be putting bad food in your system You’ve got to treat your body like a race car You put good fuel in it it’s going to take care of you If you put bad fuel in it it’s not going to take care of you"Reno Omokri former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan has
