Program to study ways to help soldiers transition back to civilian life

first_imgFREDERICTON – A Canada-wide research study is being launched with the aim of helping members of the Canadian Armed Forces and veterans transition to civilian life.The study, based around a New Brunswick-based program called Shaping Purpose, will examine the experiences of 84 Forces members and veterans.“Of the roughly 5,000 regular force members who leave the Forces each year, about 27 per cent have difficulty with transition due to a loss of identity,” said Andrew Garsch, vice-president of program delivery with Shaping Purpose.Garsch was an engineer officer for 12 years before being medically discharged.“It stripped from me who I was, and it took from me everything that I worked towards for my entire adult life. I became completely isolated and lost all confidence and was completely depressed,” he said.He said until that point he identified himself as a soldier: “I didn’t realize that with that being taken away from me I felt that I had nothing.”The research will build on a pilot project to assist Forces members and veterans define a new purpose in life and plan a way forward. During the pilot project, the participants used existing programs provided by the Canadian Armed Forces Transition Assistance Program and the Veterans Affairs Canada Vocational Rehabilitation program.Garsch said there will be four sessions across the country, starting with 21 individuals in Moncton, N.B., next month. The other sessions will be in Ontario, either Alberta or B.C., and a final location that is yet to be chosen.Kevin McCoy, the president of Irving Shipbuilding, which is helping to fund the study, said he has seen the issues first-hand.“As a 36-year veteran of the United States Navy this is very personal to me. I’ve witnessed the challenges and anxieties that can be faced when transitioning from military to civilian life,” he said.“A career in the armed forces requires some sacrifices and time spent away from family and friends to serve the country. You dedicate your life for the betterment and protection of society. When members leave the armed forces, it’s important that we, as a society, provide support and assistance so that they can continue to contribute to society in meaningful ways,” McCoy said.Bruno Battistini, scientific director of the New Brunswick Health Research Foundation, said participants will be asked to complete a number of questionnaires and go through a four-day program to gather information about them as individuals.He said the researchers will follow-up with participants in the weeks, months and year following.The research study and the evaluation of the program is expected to be completed in December 2018, with the intent to present the findings to the Canadian Armed Forces and Veterans Affairs Canada in the spring of 2019.last_img read more

Defence wants conviction quashed for woman convicted of hiding infant remains

first_imgWINNIPEG – The lawyer for a Winnipeg woman convicted of hiding the remains of six infants in a rented storage locker is trying to get the case dismissed.Greg Brodsky has filed a motion to have the case thrown out because it has taken 33 months to conclude.A Supreme Court ruling last year said legal proceedings can be presumed to be unreasonably delayed if they take more than 18 months in provincial court or 30 months in a higher court.Andrea Giesbrecht was arrested in October 2014 after the remains were found in a U-haul storage locker she rented.Medical experts testified the infants were Giesbrecht’s, were at or near full term and were likely to have been born alive.She was convicted earlier this year and a judge is to decide her sentence on Friday, but Brodsky says he will be in court that morning to try to have the case thrown out.“I’m filing the motion because we think it’s taken too long,” Brodsky said Wednesday.“Whether it’s heard or not on Friday is a matter that is not in my control. The transcripts … of the proceedings have been ordered. Whether they’re here or not by Friday, I don’t know.”How the infants died remains a mystery. Medical experts testified the remains were so decomposed, a cause of death could not be determined. Giesbrecht did not testify and the defence did not call any witnesses.Giesbrecht, 43, was convicted of six counts of concealing newborn remains — an offence that carries a maximum penalty of two years for each count.At a sentencing hearing last week, Brodsky asked provincial court Judge Murray Thompson to spare Giesbrecht any more time in custody beyond the 168 days she spent between her arrest and when she was granted bail.Crown attorney Debbie Buors asked for an 11-year sentence minus time served — one year for the earliest infant remains and two years for each of the other five, to be served consecutively.The judge’s decision Friday afternoon is to be livestreamed on media. He will first have to decide whether to hear immediately Brodsky’s motion to dismiss, reject it outright or postpone matters and hear the motion at a later date.last_img read more

SRH eye winning start against KKR

first_imgKolkata: Comeback man David Warner would be the cynosure of all eyes when last year’s finalist Sunrisers Hyderabad open their campaign against two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders in the 12th Indian Premier League here Sunday.Under Warner’s captaincy Sunrisers won their maiden IPL title in 2016 and in 2017 he was the leading rungetter for his team. But the Australian opener missed the last IPL because of last year’s infamous ball tampering episode in Capetown, and is set make his IPL comeback along side Steve Smith. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over ChandigarhWarner will be the most scrutinised player for Sunrisers this season after he was banned for a year over his role in the ball-tampering scandal. While Warner and Smith were banned for a year, young Cameron Bancroft was left out for nine months for his role. And come this year, both Warner and Smith would be hoping to make an impact for their respective IPL sides. Even as his international ban will end on March 28, the left-handed opener is eligible to play in the franchise league and would be hoping to get into his zone to stake a claim in Australia’s World Cup squad.

Kane Williamson, who led them to runners-up finish in the Aussie’s absence last season, will continue to captain Sunrisers, a team that is known for its depth and variation in bowling. While Bhuvneshwar Kumar will lead Sunrisers pace department, Afghanistan’s Rashid Khan will be in charge of the spin attack. Sunrisers have traded in Vijay Shankar, Shahbaz Nadeem and Abhishek Sharma for Shikhar Dhawan, but the it remains to be seen how they overcome the Indian opener’s departure. In KKR’s camp, skipper Dinesh Karthik will look to make most of the IPL opportunity to get the selectors’ attention. Taking charge of the team after Gautam Gambhir’s exit, Karthik led KKR to third place finish following their loss to SRH in the second eliminator last year. KKR have roped in Carlos Brathwaite to go along side Andre Russell, Sunil Narine as they would look to reinforce their batting firepower with Chris Lynn.

UN helps Liberian refugees return to their homeland as peace takes hold

“This is obviously a reflection of new hope,” spokesman Ron Redmond of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) told the press in Geneva.The first airlift of nearly 100 refugees was slated to head today from the Ghanaian capital of Accra to Monrovia, the capital of Liberia.Momentum for the repatriation is expected to pick up pace as the nationwide disarmament process heads towards completion at the end of the month. The UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) just launched the final round of that effort, with approximately 1,000 combatants of the armed group Movement for Democracy in Liberia (MODEL) expected to turn in their weapons during this stage. As stability takes hold, 50,000 refugees have gone back to Liberia so far this year on their own, often using risky methods of transport, according to UNHCR.The agency’s facilitated repatriation includes safe transport and a “dignified return,” Mr. Redmond said. Once in Liberia, returning refugees will receive food rations, supplies, and HIV/AIDS information.UNHCR has also been working with communities to rehabilitate and construct schools, water and sanitation systems, shelter, bridges and roads, which were all severely damaged during the 14-year conflict.The agency is seeking $39 million for its Liberia operations but has so far received less than half that. read more

Prince Louis Arthur Charles Royal baby name announced by Duke and Duchess

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have named their new baby Prince Louis Arthur Charles.The names honour both the Prince’s grandfather, Prince Charles, and Louis Mountbatten, the Duke of Edinburgh’s mentor who was killed by an IRA bomb in 1979.Prince George and Prince William both have Louis as middle names, with the announcement confounding bookies and experts who had believed it would not be repeated for the third baby Cambridge.Arthur had been the favourite predicted first name, eventually announced as a middle name. It is also one of the Duke of Cambridge’s own middle names.Kensington Palace said: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their son Louis Arthur Charles.”The baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge.” Asked about the baby’s name, she added tactfully: “The jury’s out on that one.

FLSmidth collaboration with Goldcorp to eliminate tailings dams

first_imgFLSmidth will be working with Goldcorp to develop EcoTails™, a new system to dramatically improve tailings and waste rock disposal while economically processing mine waste and increasing water recovery and reuse by as much as 90–95%. Together with the world’s third largest gold miner, Goldcorp, FLSmidth is co-developing a system for co-mingling dewatered tailings with waste rock in a continuous process. Designed specifically for large scale mining applications, the system is expected to be environmentally safer for managing tailings and waste rock storage and has the potential to eliminate conventional slurry tailings dams completely.Combined with FLSmidth’s co-developed filter press dewatering technology, co-mingling is the missing piece of the puzzle to keep costs low for dry stacked tailings. “As water resources become increasingly scarce and mining dams grow globally, so do the risks,” says Todd Wisdom, Director of Tailings Systems, FLSmidth. “We believe that the target for the industry is to completely eliminate tailings dams, and to recirculate maximum water back to the process. Highly dewatered tailings is the sustainable route for tailings disposal, and our work with Goldcorp will help EcoTails™ develop into both a technologically viable and economically feasible solution for large scale mining.”The solution is being studied for full scale testing at Peñasquito, Goldcorp’s largest mine, with an average daily throughput of 130,000 t/day. Co-mingled waste disposal has previously only been used at small scale mines using dozers, trucks, high cost liquid-solid separation processes, and significant manpower, making the solution too costly for large-tonnage operations.By using materials conveyance as the energy source for the mixing, Goldcorp and FLSmidth are testing a low energy, low cost co-mingling solution, with the waste blended in transit using specially designed material handling technologies. This method will make the solution economically competitive with traditional tailings disposal methods for large mines.The method of co-mingling tailings with mine waste in a continuous process produces a new type of waste called GeoWaste™. The filtered tailings cost is minimised by using fast filtering technology and waste rock to provide additional strength to the blended material. The risk of acid rock leaching from the waste rock is minimised by filter cake filling the voids of the waste rock matrix, greatly reducing oxygen flux. Once the system completes testing it will be offered commercially by FLSmidth.last_img read more

The lineup also boasts some old-school reggae legends, including singer Mykal Rose who will be playing with production powerhouses Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare, dancehall veteran Elephant Man and many others across the spectrum of sounds and styles in the reggae-verse.”We try to keep our lineup fresh, make sure we have credible acts to uphold the genre and as much as we can, share the culture of reggae and Jamaica within this environment,” Damian Marley told Billboard. “All of the artists involved are proud to see reggae presented on this platform and that shows in the caliber of their performances. From the participation of the fans, to the production to the people who run the boat, you can feel reggae’s positive vibrations.”GRAMMY-winning reggae artist—and son of reggae legend Bob Marley—Damian Marley has taken the role of continuing his father’s legacy and keeping the genre alive and vibrant quite seriously. He has taken home four GRAMMY wins to date, including for Best Reggae Album for the 2005 classic Welcome to Jamrock and Best Urban/Alternative Performance for the title track, the only Jamaican artist to receive the latter award, at the 48th GRAMMY Awards. He is keeping the spirit of reggae alive in his own music, through collaborating with his brothers, who are also working hard to promote the sound and spirit of the genre their father so famously helped popularize outside of Jamaica, and with events like the Jamrock cruise that bring a diverse group of artists, young and old, established and newer, with fans from all walks of life, together to enjoy the sounds and energy of the reggae community.last_img read more

HC to hear plea against proposed MCD strike

first_imgThe Delhi high court on Monday agreed to hear on Tuesday a plea seeking to restrain the civic bodies in the national Capital from going on strike again.The matter was mentioned before a Bench of justices Badar Durrez Ahmed and Sanjeev Sachdeva which directed that it be listed for hearing on Tuesday. The petition was filed by a lawyer who moved the court as an association of MCD unions has again called a strike on July 22 demanding primarily reunification of the three Corporations as well as payment of pending salaries and other arrears. The association also made other demands which include declaration of sanitation workers as technical employees, timely payment of terminal benefits of retired and deceased employees, pension benefits, cashless medical card facility as well as providing houses to them. The petitioner, Sanjeev Kumar Arora, said that proposed strike of July 22 “is of much wider consequence” as it has been called by all the employees of the Municipal Corporations of Delhi and thus it will “jeopardise the health, safety and normal life of the people” of the city.last_img read more

Are US chains taking over Costa Rica

first_imgThe Costa Rican Chamber of Commerce said 171 foreign franchises operate in Costa Rica, an increase from 147 in 2011, and they operate approximately 900 stores. Not all new franchises arrive from the United States, although 60 percent of foreign franchises are U.S.-based. Spanish clothing store Zara will bolster its number of locations in the country. Brazilian restaurant chain Spoleto is set for an expansion of 15 franchises in five years. Costa Rican eatery Bagelman’s  intends to expand. But the trend seems to be toward bringing in more U.S. franchises. The reason seems to be both Costa Rica’s eagerness for foreign investment and an improving U.S. economy that allows U.S. companies to invest in store construction and brand promotion. And Costa Rica’s middle class is a worthy target market. “Costa Rica is a good market for many kinds of international brands, including Pollo Tropical,” wrote Marc Mushkin, Pollo Tropical’s senior vice president of international development, in an email. “This is because of a number of factors, including the growing purchasing power of consumers, high levels of international tourism, an educated workforce and good supply chains for most products.”A large list of U.S. brands has opened stores in Costa Rica in the past year. Carl Jr.’s opened multiple stores near the end of 2011. They’ll try to compete in a burger market that has dozens of McDonald’s (the first-ever Costa Rica franchise was a McDonald’s, which opened in 1979), Burger Kings and Wendy’s. And coming soon: Denver, Colorado’s fast-casual burger chain Smashburger.Family restaurant Applebee’s inaugurated its second Costa Rican location in the spring, in Sabanilla, east of San José. The chain plans to open two more restaurants in the provinces of Alajuela and Guanacaste by the end of 2014. In November, Applebee’s will be joined by Chili’s, another member of the casual dining brethren that will open in Mall Multiplaza, in the southwestern suburb of Escazú. Moe’s Southwestern Grill will introduce Tex-Mex to Central America in June, also in Escazú. Salads and sandwich franchise Cosi’s is christening multiple stores here in 2012 and 2013. That brand has plenty of catching up to do, as sandwich shop Quizno’s opened its 20th location in the country last month. On Wednesday, Quizno’s won an eight -year contract to operate the food court at Juan Santamaría International Airport, the busiest airport in the country. With a $4 million investment, QSR International will open another Quizno’s, and a KFC, Smashburger and Teriyaki Experience in the airport food court. Still, Quizno’s has less than half the number of franchises in the country as sandwich king Subway.Restaurants constitute about a quarter of the foreign franchises in Costa Rica. Clothing stores and hotels each represent another 20 percent. In April, Starwood Hotels opened two more lodgings, compounding a market that contains big names like Holiday Inn and Hilton Hotels.Grupo Roble, the Salvadoran group that owns Mall Multiplaza Escazú, Multiplaza del Este in San José and other projects, closed the Escazú location of Honduran department store Carrión at the beginning of the year. Carrión will be replaced by Tico department store Cemaco and three popular U.S. clothing stores: The Gap, Banana Republic and Forever 21. The rest of the U.S. franchises fall under a wide gamut of categories ranging from beauty shops to auto rentals. But those brands are showing less noticeable growth than the biggest areas of food, clothing and hotels.Bad News for Tico Brands?The number of Costa Rican chains is increasing alongside foreign companies. But the risk of oversaturating the market rises with each store opening. José Andrés Masís, a franchise legal expert, said he believes U.S. brands can survive in Costa Rica because many already are well-known by young Ticos. “The No. 1 factor for foreign chains, is the openness of Costa Ricans toward foreign brands, especially U.S. ones,” Masís said.The relatively strong economy in Costa Rica, compared to the rest of the region, means Costa Ricans are aware of many of the brands that hope to break into the market. Many U.S. brands already have a toehold in the country since locals know products from vacations in the U.S., via the Internet or from television commercials. Local malls are providing more spaces for foreign brands. Avenida Escazú, the plaza that will be home to Starbucks by May, keeps growing. In 2013, Costa Rica will see the inauguration of two major complexes: Lincoln Plaza in Moravia, northeast of San José, and Mango Plaza in the northern Alajuela province.It’s difficult to say if these foreign businesses are taking spaces that would go to Costa Rican brands, or if there is more opportunity for investment. But certainly there’s a demand for more foreign products.Elsa Rojas, marketing manager of Grupo Roble in Costa Rica, said that’s part of the reason the company wants to bring clothing stores like Gap and Forever 21 to the isthmus. “[Consumers] like to touch and to buy things here, like they would in the United States,” Rojas said.In many instances, Costa Ricans prefer foreign products, which complicates business for national chains, Masís said. He could list only a few items that Costa Ricans took pride in buying local, citing sustainable tourism, fruits and vegetables or coffee. Starbucks is one foreign company Masís feels might struggle here. He said, “If Starbucks does not promote Costa Rican coffee, if it does not make it obvious that its product will be Costa Rican, then it’s going to suffer problems, because we are very proud of our coffee.”However, for products like clothing or shoes, Costa Ricans shrug their shoulders about the item’s origin, Masís said. Their main concern is buying something that’s affordable and fashionable. That does not make it impossible for national businesses to best foreign products, and some national brands have succeeded in not only dominating the Costa Rican market, but also expanding outside the country to the rest of Central America. Pops Ice Cream serves as an apotheosis for Costa Rican business owners. The ice cream store even has its own U.S. location in Florida, where it goes by a name that brims national pride, Pops Costa Rica’s Creamery.Masís said to survive, local retailers need to reassess their focus and emphasize promoting products that are local, cheaper and better than the competition. With the right strategy, Costa Rica can avoid a future where Starbucks and McDonald’s are on every corner. But that will depend on how national business owners approach this surmounting challenge. “If Costa Rican businesses cling to old ways, then yes, they could suffer enormous losses in sales, and it’s possible they could disappear,” Masís said. “If they learn how to adjust mindsets, if they learn how to suit themselves to the games of the competition, they’re going to produce better products, because they will toughen up. If they leave their comfort zones what they can do is create tools, create products that can compete directly with foreign chains.”is create tools, create products that can compete directly with foreign chains.” Facebook Comments U.S. fast food chain Pollo Tropical opened its first Costa Rica location in April.

Next to him, O’Hong Wong finishes off a couple of chicken wings. This is not their first time eating here, and they’re already fans of the U.S. chain, headquartered in Miami, Florida. The restaurant chain opened its first location in Costa Rica at the beginning of April, and has plans for four more sites here. After returning from a day of work in the city of Heredia, north of the capital, Mora and Wong appreciate a brand new restaurant where they can grab dinner. But not even two weeks after it opened, Pollo Tropical lost its status as the latest chicken franchise in town. On April 13, Popeyes, a U.S. fried-chicken franchise from Louisiana, opened a $1.5 million Costa Rican restaurant in the eastern San José suburb of Curridabat. In the same market, the two must square off against U.S. franchises KFC and Church’s Chicken, Guatemalan brand Pollo Campero and Costa Rica’s own Rostipollos, among others. The sector of restaurants specializing in chicken embodies only a small part of the influx of U.S. brands that are moving here. The arrivals could oversaturate the market and result in fierce competition between both international and local brands, market analysts said. But franchise expansion continues because customers like Mora enjoy the increasing number of options. “I think it’s good because you have more to choose from,” Mora, 37, said. “[There are] more options for food, for fast food. … There’s a lot of variety. It’s always hard to find authentic Costa Rican food in central San José. At home, we eat casados, [Costa Rica’s traditional dish, with] rice, beans, meat and plantains.

Cyprus to undertake coordinating regional role in addressing climate change

first_imgCyprus will be faced with more intense heat waves, droughts and perhaps even new diseases, Professor Costas Papanikolas, President of the Cyprus Institute (CyI) told CNA in an interview, stressing the importance of the recent International Conference on Climate Change, organised recently by the institute in Cyprus.In his interview, Papanikolas said that Cyprus, being the only EU country in the Middle East, can and should undertake a primary coordinating, regional role in addressing the fallout from climate change, with the CyI being at the core of this effort. Papanikolas said that this was the primary outcome of the International Conference on Climate Change.He said the conference had proposed a specific timetable for actions to be taken by the CyI the results of which would be presented at the United Nations Climate Change Special Session in the autumn of 2019.The wider Middle East and Eastern Mediterranean region was the world`s most vulnerable region to climate change and warned that the phenomena in Cyprus would increase in intensity and frequency.The first signs of the effects of climate change were already visible: extreme weather conditions (fires, floods, heat waves), increase in average temperature and reduction of rainfall, he said. “Unfortunately these phenomena will increase in intensity and frequency,” he warned.“We should be ready to see an impact on our forests, prolonged drought and heat waves, possible visits by unwanted visitors on our shores (e.g. jellyfish) which may impact tourism, even perhaps diseases that have not been of concern to us in the past (eg West Nile virus).”He said the magnitude and impact of climate change was just beginning to be understood in detail in order to come up with plans to address the issue. Papanikolas said that although the long-term measures to tackle the problem were widely known, namely the limitation of greenhouse gas emissions, nevertheless the plans to deal with individual impact, eg. on agriculture and livestock, tourism or immigration were not known.“There is a great need to coordinate scientific activities and actions to deal with the repercussions of climate change in the future,” he said.Referring to the role of Cyprus, he said that the primary conclusion of the conference was that Cyprus, being the only EU country in the Middle East, can and should undertake a leading coordinating role and that the Cyprus Institute can be at the core of this effort.“The Cyprus Institute is recognised internationally as a regional centre of excellence on the study of climate change”, he said, adding that its work would be extended to the field of scientific co-operation and actions and policies to address their impact at a regional level.He added that the CyI was already coordinating the actions of the global ‘Future Earth’ network for the Middle East and North Africa.You May Likeflarebox.info10 Robo toys for kids that will make even adults jealousflarebox.infoUndoHistory A2ZThe Non-Verbal Signs Your Dog Is Giving YouHistory A2ZUndoFinance NancyRemember Her?
