First Nations MPs offer different views on Attawapiskat crisis

By on October 14, 2019

first_imgAPTN National NewsFirst Nations MPs offered starkly different takes on the unfolding crisis in the Cree community of Attawapiskat.Saskatchewan MP Rob Clarke, who is from the Muskeg Lake Cree Nation, said Attawapiskat was in a crisis of their own making.“I have seen what’s taken place in my services and on my reserve where I have lived and worked,” said Clarke, who is a former RCMP officer. “And what I have seen take place is very troubling. I don’t think the funding is being utilized, there are millions of dollars not being used, but I put the question back to the First (Nation) leaders and members to make their communities and leaders accountable.”Quebec NDP MP and leadership candidate Romeo Saganash, who is Cree, said it’s unfair to blame the community when they’re grappling with exploding demographics with funding that doesn’t keep up.“Given the fastest growing population and given the high cost of housing up north-the cost to build a house in Attawapiskat and northern Quebec or Nunavik, which is my riding, is more than $200,000 per house-there needs to be a clear understanding of what the situation is and determine where to go from there,” said Saganash. “I don’t think that’s happening right now. It’s just blaming the First Nations ‘oh they are mismanaging their money.’”last_img read more

By on September 28, 2019

No. 3 Micah Jordan celebrates a last-second takedown that won him the bout against North Carolina State University’s No. 4 Justin Oliver in the 149-pound bout of the Ohio State vs. NCSU dual meet at St. John Arena. Jordan won the bout by decision, 6-5. Credit: Sal Marandino | For The LanternEvery year, both Ohio State and Penn State have this duel circled on their calendars.Recently, a rivalry has formed between Ohio State and Penn State with some of the most talented wrestlers in the country, and this year is no different. Penn State leads the overall series with a record of 20-12, and currently have a three-duel win streak against the Buckeyes.  As a veteran, Ohio State redshirt junior Kollin Moore, the No. 2 wrestler in the country at 197 pounds, knows what the rivalry between the Nittany Lions and the Buckeyes means on the mat.“ It would mean so much, at least to me. A lot of the young guys haven’t been in there and experienced that kind of intensity when we wrestle [Penn State], said Moore. “[Penn State] has beaten us a lot and we have beaten them sometimes, and it would be really big for us to get a win.”No. 6 Ohio State will host No. 1 Penn State, following a 19-18 Nittany Lions home win a season ago, with an anticipated energized crowd and expected sold out St. John Arena to try and stop the losing streak against its rival. Ohio State head coach Tom Ryan said his team is excited for a chance at redemption..“I think the crowd speaks to the madness of the event, and hopefully it will sell out,” Ryan said. “We lost a close one last year, and we definitely want this one.”  Ohio State and Penn State have gone toe-to-toe in nationals, the biggest stage in collegiate wrestling, the past eight years. Penn State has won seven NCAA championships in those eight years, while Ohio State has won one, finishing runner-up to Penn State two years in a row.Ohio State redshirt freshman Ethan Smith, the No. 17 wrestler in the country at 174 pounds, said payback is on the team’s mind.“We have a salty taste in our mouths from last year because they got the better of us,” Smith said. “I’m just really looking forward to the [duel].”When Ohio State and Penn State square up on Friday, there will be five former or defending NCAA champions competing, which has become a common occurrence in their recent duels..Penn State redshirt senior Bo Nickal, No. 1 wrestler in the country at 197 pounds, has won two-straight NCAA titles, and has won 90 of 93 career matches. “197 is the Mack Daddy match,” Ryan said. “That is the one that is a No. 1 versus No. 2 matchup and it should be fun to watch.”Ohio State senior Myles Martin, the No. 1 wrestler in the country at 184 pounds, won the NCAA title at 174 pounds, as a true freshman in 2016, who has 109-18 career record.Penn State redshirt senior Jason Nolf and redshirt junior Vincenzo Joseph, No. 1 at 157 pounds and 165 pounds, respectively, are currently both two-time defending NCAA champions.Ryan called Nolf “one of the elite college wrestlers in the last 50 years.” Penn State junior Mark Hall, the No. 1 wrestler in the country at 174 pounds, won the NCAA title in 2017, and has a career record of 63-4.With 17 of 20 wrestlers in this duel being ranked, Ryan said that this duel is something that fans of all sports should be watching.“If you can’t get fired up for this [duel] then you should find something else to do with your time,” Ryan said. read more

Among them, government employees and citizens who have gathered 38,892 tons of sargassum on the beaches and 218.8 tons of seaweed in the sea. As part of the short-term actions in the cleaning of beaches, there is the support of trained personnel, installation of containment or diversion barriers, twill vessels, beach sweepers, conveyor belts, dump trucks, rakes and rods. Photo: CGC Quintana Roo Photo: CGC Quintana Roo Riviera Maya, Q.R. — “With the sum of efforts, together we move forward in the massive fight against sargassum. We have advances in the cleaning of beaches. In areas where the barriers have been installed, there is a 70 percent containment of the seaweed. The remaining 30 percent is cleaned with volunteer support,” says Governor Carlos Joaquín. Governor Carlos Joaquín said that “protecting the natural beauties of Quintana Roo is a priority, so we have joined forces to combat the massive arrival of the algae. In addition, there is no sargassum every day or on every beach.” The fight against the arrival of sargassum has also been joined by academic institutions including the National Autonomous University of Mexico, the Autonomous University of Baja California, the University of Quintana Roo and the Center for Research in Applied Chemistry, among others. The Secretariat of the Navy also participates in cleaning actions, which is the building of sargaceras vessels.last_img read more

Education Ministry promises to pay most teachers by Monday night

By on

first_imgEducation Ministry officials on Monday announced that payment of a backlog of public teachers’ salaries mostly would be completed by 9 p.m. tonight, hopefully resolving a tense situation that led to an ongoing nationwideteachers’ strike last week.That strike continues, and a group of 100 teachers demonstrated Monday morning in front of the ministry in downtown San José, blocking Calle 16, one of the busiest roads in the capital. Traffic Police arrived at the protest site, but no arrests, injuries or damages were reported.The strike began on May 5 after approximately 7,000 teachers had not received full payment of their salaries, some since February. Education Ministry officials blamed the error on a change in a computer system used for payments.At 1 p.m. on Monday, union leaders met to outline further actions planned for Tuesday, following a meeting with Education Minister Sonia Marta Mora.Although most of the backlog will be resolved by Monday night,  38 foreign teachers will not be paid due to problems with personal information or identification documents.The ministry published a list of those teachers on its website, and asked them to contact the ministry’s human resources department to verify personal information.Ana Doris González, president of the High School Teachers Association, said teachers will continue protesting in the capital and in other regions of the country until everyone is paid.

TIA recognised for excellence in business support

By on August 17, 2019

first_imgTIA recognised for excellence in business supportThe Tourism Industry Association New Zealand (TIA) has won the New Zealand Business Excellence Foundation Award at the 2015 AUT Excellence in Business Support Awards.TIA was one of 10 category winners, with the Supreme Award going to Advanced Security Group. A full list of 2015 winners is below.The Awards are the only national performance measure for New Zealand organisations that provide business support. Applications are judged by evaluators from the AUT Business School with oversight from the New Zealand Business Excellence Foundation.“TIA provides support to large and small businesses in the tourism sector to achieve tangible benefits for the industry and New Zealand. It has been instrumental in developing the Tourism 2025industry growth framework which outlines a clear vision for all tourism operators to work towards. TIA also has strong relationships with central and local government. I was impressed with TIA’s enthusiasm for New Zealand, and the way its communications and processes ensure member bodies are well supported,” category evaluator and AUT Lecturer in Accounting Gillian Craig says.TIA Chief Executive Chris Roberts says the Award recognises the efforts TIA makes to support its 1500 members and the wider tourism industry.“TIA is the only national, private sector organisation that represents all sectors of the $30 billion tourism industry, including accommodation, transport, activities and attractions.

New Employment Needs Emerge as Industry Morphs

By on August 15, 2019

first_img Compliance Jobs 2014-03-26 Sandra Lane in Daily Dose, Headlines, News, Uncategorized The slowdown in origination as well as the decrease in defaults is having a devastating effect on mortgage industry employment. In the past two months, non-bank mortgage companies cut 8,600 employees from their payrolls. In addition, JPMorgan recently announced that 8,000 jobs were being cut, with similar cuts being made at all their depository institutions.Although employment is being reduced, the need for certain types of talent is more critical than ever, according to Rick Glass, founder of R.T. Glass & Associates, one of the mortgage banking industry’s leaders in executive search since 1993. However, he said the demand for certain types of skills has changed during the past several years, and continues to change in order to adapt to new regulations and fluctuating markets.In a radio interview for “Mortgage Markets Today,” Glass explained that there have been three trends predominant since the crash in 2007. “There was not much happening in 2007 through the end of 2008,” Glass said. “There was a cautious attitude, a hesitation because investment into the mortgage banking infrastructure was mild at best.”Beginning in the first quarter of 2009 to the end of 2011, Glass said the hiring trend was like a tidal wave. “The demand for servicing talent was off the map, and we were extremely busy searching for chief servicing officers and senior leadership in top-level impact roles.” However, he said that demand started to diminish in 2012 and 2013.“We saw a shift in 2013,” Glass explained. “There was a need for leadership to guide companies in the new environment, and we began to search for experts on risk and compliance as well as some of the more traditional key roles in operation and production.”So, what has happened to the people who were hired for default servicing at the senior level from 2009 to 2011? Glass said for the most part, the people brought into those leadership roles at that time are still in place. “Those companies have been growing, and some are adding origination channels, some are carving up servicing, and others are adding component servicing,” he added.The trend for 2014 is a larger demand for change management. “As the entire industry is changing, there seems to be a need for transformational change in leadership with a broad execution focus,” Glass said. “Recently, I’ve noticed the need for key executives to upgrade and revitalize company performance, implement transparent best practices, and optimize or even rewire existing platforms.”He believes the Six Sigma methodology type of approach is something the industry needs more of. In support of this, Glass said, there is currently demand for driven subject-matter experts with an engineering/manufacturing type of mindset, capable of steering and optimizing performance. They must also have a passion for measuring, monitoring, and integrating controls.Glass stated that leaders for the mortgage industry of tomorrow may come from other disciplines. He believes that someone who has been in the industry for 30 years may not have the skillsets needed to retrofit or re-engineer existing operations if that person has been out of touch with the Six Sigma process improvement model.“There have been a few people from the manufacturing side who have done very well in the mortgage industry,” Glass said, “but there is not a pipeline for that. My job is to find them, but there is also a void of new talent coming into the industry.” He observed that people are retiring, and others are leaving the industry while younger people are not rushing out of grad school into the mortgage industry. “There has been a void since the sub-prime crash, and the mortgage industry has been given a bad name over the past several years,” he said.To attract and train new talent, Glass feels that companies are going to have to make a significant investment in organizational development. He noted that companies like Quicken Loans have mastered that practice and set themselves apart. “They are career pathing and offer incredible internal learning opportunities to younger people,” he said. “I think there are a lot of firms waking up to that practice and realizing if they don’t choose that path, they are going to suffer.”In addition to searching for specific skills, Glass said that candidates’ personality traits are also involved in his searches. “We’re looking for a high-performance driven athlete, a person who has a passion for the discipline and goes the extra mile,” he explained. “Owning the discipline, being able to engage and keep the team accountable, and running at a high performance level, is a standard,” he explained. “In addition, we look for someone who is aligned with the client’s culture, core values, and philosophies.”Predictions for 2014: “I think there is change in the wind, and I think there are going to be some opportunities in this business,” Glass said. “Once we can get a little creative, there’s going to be some real excitement. I think there is a light at the end of the tunnel.”The Five Star Institute and iServe Companies have partnered to create “Mortgage Markets Today,” an in-depth, formal talk radio resource featuring expert guests, quality subject matter, and timely insights. The show delves into a vast array of topics ranging from the secondary market and federal compliance standards to real estate and mortgage lending.Investors, lenders, service providers, and all those interested in and affected by the mortgage and housing markets can tune in on the Web or download audio podcasts of program broadcasts from iTunes.Editor’s note: The Five Star Institute is the parent company of MReport and theMReport.com.

IMF hails strengthening economic recovery

By on August 9, 2019

first_imgThe International Monetary Fund said Friday it welcomes Cyprus’ economic recovery and the prudent macroeconomic policies, as the island seeks consent for early repayment of part of the bailout loan it received from the IMF.“We welcome the strengthening economic recovery and generally prudent macroeconomic policies, as reflected in favourable financial market conditions, that have enabled Cyprus to take this step,” Vincenzo Guzzo, IMF’s representative in Cyprus told the Cyprus News Agency.Finance Minister Harris Georgiades said Thursday the cost of a significant part of the €280m IMF loan was higher than the cost the Republic would incur if it borrowed from international markets, after a drop in yields.He said there was a difference of 0.5 per cent and therefore it would make sense to repay early part of the loan Cyprus has received by the IMF, in the framework of the adjustment programme.The cabinet, he added, has authorised him to start consultations with the IMF and the European Support Mechanism to get their consent.You May LikeClassmates.comLook For Any High School Yearbook, It’s FreeClassmates.comUndoFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?

Auditor highlights strange goings on at pharmaceutical services

first_imgA lack of transparency in how it conducts its affairs has led the Pharmaceutical Services (PS) to overpay for office space and storage space, the auditor-general has said.The central offices of the PS are currently located in a privately owned building, where the service is renting two floors.The rental agreement was signed without the PS first issuing a call for expressions of interest and thus failing to shop for the best possible deal, the government watchdog said.In a special report on the PS, released on Monday, the auditor-general said these practices were in breach of the principles of good governance, irrespective of whether at the time the service was obligated to follow an open procedure.The deeds on the 3rd and 4th floors in the building bloc housing the PS are dated June 11, 2011 and were filed with the land registry on June 29 of the same year. The deeds were transferred to the new owners in 2013.According to the report, the director of the PS signed new rental agreements with the new owners without first getting approval from the relevant committee.Moreover, the date of the new rental agreements was recorded as May 14 2001, that is, prior to the actual date.“Whereas our service does not have data on the actual date of the signing of the two new rental agreements (one for each floor) … it is deduced that a false date was used,” the report stated.The rental agreements were renewed at a period when rents were going down due to the economic crisis, it said, adding that the higher rates agreed were “unjustified”.The report unveiled other apparent shenanigans, such as that the director of the PS personally purchased a shop inside the same building.This was in clear breach of civil service regulations, which state that any civil servant or a close relative cannot have a ‘manifest interest’ in dealings which concern the public sector.Another issue highlighted was the steep price the PS is paying for storage space.The service is renting warehouses located within an industrial zone in Strovolos, for which it pays €135,000 a year.It turns out the warehouse is situated on state land, which in 1979 the commerce ministry leased out to a private company for a period of 33 years, for an annual rent of €6,660.The lease was subsequently renewed for another 33 years, up until the year 2045.The commerce ministry said it had asked the attorney-general’s office to furnish a legal opinion as to whether there was a legal way for the government to take back the plot or, if this were not possible, for the ministry to readjust the rent paid to it by the private company, which has sub-leased the property to the PS at several times the rate it itself is paying.A response from the attorney-general’s office was still pending, the ministry said.The report also flagged the purchase of medicines by the PS. In 2016 the service spent €96.5 million, compared to €92.4m the previous year.Total expenses (including medicines) in 2016 came to €100.3m, compared to €92.6m in 2015.The PS purchased 78.4 per cent of its medicines from just 20 of its 93 suppliers.In addition, 37.4 per cent of total purchases in 2016 related to 25 of the some 1600 types of medicines bought.Responding to the auditor-general’s findings, the deputy director of the PS conceded that many types of medicines are purchased from a single seller because they are patented originator drugs rather than generic drugs. You May LikeFeweredI love you necklaceFeweredUndoEditorChoice.com20 Hilarious Breakup Notes You Can’t Help But Laugh AtEditorChoice.comUndoFood PreventThis is What Happens to Your Body if You Eat Ginger Every DayFood PreventUndo Films and food at RialtoUndoLimassol police investigating attempted murderUndoThe Deniz boat incident showed clearly the intentions of the Turkish sideUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
