Alberta shrugs off BCs legal challenge on wine ban says much more

first_imgHorgan’s government has been fighting the expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline – which got the green light from the federal government in late 2016 – and Notley’s government views the move as a back door way to kill the project by strangling its financial viability.Notley and Bilous have said the Trans Mountain expansion is critical because Alberta’s crude oil sells at a sharp discount on the North American market due to pipeline bottlenecks and to a lack of access to a better price on overseas markets.“The cost to the Canadian economy is significant,” said Bilous.“We have one buyer, which is the U.S., (and) the differential is somewhere around $30 (US a barrel). We’ve lost out on billions of dollars.” The Trans Mountain expansion would triple the amount of oil shipped from Alberta to a terminal in Burnaby.The $7.4-billion Kinder Morgan Canada project has faced delays despite the federal approval.In December, the National Energy Board stepped in to announce it would allow Kinder Morgan to bypass permit delays in Burnaby. Over the weekend, Horgan’s government announced it will challenge that decision in the Federal Court.Along with the wine ban, Notley has also retaliated by scuttling talks to buy $500 million worth of electricity from B.C. She has also struck a 19-member task force of politicians, academics, finance and business leaders to find other ways to put pressure on B.C.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government has made it clear the project will go ahead and that Ottawa has the final say on pipelines. Federal officials have been meeting with their B.C. counterparts and Notley has promised further retaliatory measures this week if there is no progress on resolving the impasse. B.C. upped the ante Monday in its cross-boundary trade dispute with Alberta, by invoking the dispute settlement process over the wine ban under Canada’s free-trade agreement.Under the agreement, the two sides have four months to resolve the dispute before an arbitration panel kicks in.Bilous said Alberta won’t even come to the table unless B.C. reverses its decision to refuse additional oil from Alberta while it studies spill safety.“B.C. has really one option, and that is for them to smarten up (and) realize that what they’re doing is unconstitutional,” said Bilous. “A province cannot dictate what goes in a pipeline. That is a federal jurisdiction. They need to acknowledge that, recognize it and ensure that this pipeline moves forward.”The wine ban, imposed Feb. 6 by Alberta Premier Rachel Notley, affects $70 million worth of wine from B.C. a year _ about 17 million bottles.The dispute began three weeks ago, when B.C. Premier John Horgan’s government announced it would not take additional levels of crude from Alberta until it could be sure there are measures in place to handle spill safety.center_img EDMONTON, A.B. — Alberta’s economic development minister is shrugging off a legal challenge filed by British Columbia over Alberta’s ban on B.C. wine.Deron Bilous says the potential fine Alberta faces for violating free trade rules is a pittance when set against the stakes of the Trans Mountain pipeline issue.“Let’s compare the (maximum) $5 million in a fine versus the billions of dollars of investment and the thousands of jobs,” Bilous told reporters at the legislature Tuesday. “We know what our priority is, and that’s getting this pipeline built.”last_img read more

Sri Lanka pilot country in world intellectual property project

This is the first time Sri Lanka has been selected to participate as a pilot country for a Committee on Development and Intellectual Property (CDIP) Project. WIPO officials will liaise with the relevant authorities of the Government of Sri Lanka to begin project implementation early in 2016. Dr. Francis Gurry, Director General of World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) communicating this decision to Ambassador Ravinatha Aryasinha, Permanent Representative of Sri Lanka to the UN in Geneva, has informed that this selection was made pursuant to Sri Lanka’s expression of interest and formal proposal submitted to WIPO to participate in this Project in August 2015. This Project will aim at building capacities of key stakeholders and raising awareness of the intersection between IP and tourism, in the framework of growth and development policies. The experiences and best practices documented and the strategies, tools and practical guide developed in the course of the Project will also contribute to guide policy decisions and raise public awareness on the use of IP in promotion of tourism, national and/or local knowledge, traditions, and culture, while increasing national economic, social and cultural benefits. The Project aims to address Recommendations included in the WIPO Development Agenda. (Colombo Gazette) Sri Lanka has been selected as one of the four pilot countries to participate in a World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) Project titled “Intellectual Property, Tourism and Culture.”This Project will contribute to promoting awareness of the role of IP in Sri Lanka and supporting the tourism-related economic activities of the country. Further it will enhance the scope for utilizing IP for development in a new area, under the ongoing cooperation between WIPO and GOSL through a 10 Point Action Plan. read more

UN expert hails Thailands pledge to help injecting drug users avoid AIDS

The Thai Government’s pledge at the recent XV International AIDS Conference held in Bangkok was hailed by Special Rapporteur Paul Hunt. The expert, who monitors “On the right of everyone to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health,” issued a statement in Geneva saluting the Government’s promise to support and collaborate with the Thai Drug User Network and other non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and its recognition of injecting drug users in Thailand as a group extremely vulnerable to HIV/AIDS. In a statement released in Geneva, Mr. Hunt praised the Government’s commitment to ensuring access to anti-retroviral treatment for all who require it and to supporting neighbouring countries in this effort. “This is an important step toward realizing the right to health for people living with HIV/AIDS,” he said. At the same time, Mr. Hunt remained cautious in the face of reports of an alarming number of people living with HIV/AIDS who lack access to counselling and who suffer discrimination. Voicing his concerns to the Government late last week, Mr. Hunt also cited reports that Thailand’s policies had “generated a climate of fear that has driven drug users deeper underground and forced them beyond the reach of both prevention and treatment efforts.” “I am concerned that the Anti-Narcotics Campaign, coupled with limited access to harm reduction services, has inadvertently created the conditions for a more extensive spread of the virus in Thailand,” said Mr. Hunt, encouraging the authorities to act swiftly on recent policy initiatives in order to remedy the situation. The expert pointed to data showing that the number of injecting drug users who are seeking treatment has declined considerably in the period 2003-2004, while HIV prevalence rates among injecting drug users has remained unacceptably high at 50 per cent. read more

Successful refinery startup at the worlds largest integrated aluminium project

first_imgThe Ma’aden aluminium project in Saudi Arabia, a joint venture between the Saudi Arabian Mining Co (Ma’aden) and light metals leader Alcoa, will be the world’s largest vertically integrated mine-to-metal complex. The alumina refinery at Ras Al-Khair is the first refinery to be constructed and operated in the region. Hatch’s patented multi-cell jacketed pipe heater (tube) digestion technologies are at the refinery’s core.In December 2014, the 1.8 Mt/y greenfield alumina refinery, located on the Arabian Gulf Coast, successfully produced its first alumina from Saudi Arabian bauxite.In preparation for the complete refinery start-up, Hatch provided operational readiness support including operating manuals and Safe Work Instructions (SWIs) and hands-on commissioning assistance for the integrated digestion and evaporation facility. Timely and safe digestion start-up was facilitated by Hatch alumina professionals with extensive technical and operating experience in new refinery start-ups and operation of facilities.During the commissioning and start-up phase, Hatch also worked closely with the Ma’aden control room operators to develop simple, practical tools to help them manage operation of the tube digestion technology. Experienced Hatch alumina specialists also provided operational readiness services for several other refinery facilities, including preparation of commissioning plans, operations manuals, SWIs, and hands-on training for operations personnel.Hatch’s state-of-the-art tube digestion technology is part of the core process at the Ma’aden refineryIn addition, Hatch provided asset management support services for all mine and refinery facilities. The Hatch team developed a proactive, risk-averse, holistic, and easy-to-integrate asset management program (AMP). The AMP was implemented before the refinery start-up to enable optimum asset performance from the first day of operations, without compromising safety or the environment.The scope of the AMP development included equipment hierarchy, maintenance strategies, and procedures using Hatch eGateway.ASD™. The AMP developed fit-for-purpose, shared solutions through a collaborative process with the Ma’aden maintenance and operations teams.Hatch personnel completed facility walk-rounds and physically audited and listed more than 15,000 refinery assets on the very busy, complex construction site. The goal was to be operationally ready as quickly as possible while maintaining global safety standards through deployment of best maintenance practices and alumina refining expertise. The team completed criticality analyses across all the refinery assets based on risk to safety, production, and environmental effects. This was followed by facilitated workshops at site on failure modes and effects critical analysis (FMECA) and development of the maintenance task list as the basis for the maintenance strategies.The result is a complete asset hierarchy, populated and uploaded to Ma’aden’s Oracle eAM asset management system, in time for the “go live” date. This includes 55 area-specific equipment management strategies, 3,500 maintenance activities (tasks required for jobs planning) uploaded to Oracle eAM, and 585 work instructions and procedures for critical assets.Ma’aden considers the overall refinery start-up a success. This is a significant element of Saudi Arabia’s national strategy to diversify its industrial base, reduce reliance on oil and gas–based industries, and increase skills transfer and employment opportunities for Saudi nationals.www.hatch.calast_img read more

Michigan Official Faces Manslaughter Trial over Poisoned Flint Water

first_imgBy The Associated PressA judge on Monday ordered Michigan’s state health director to stand trial on involuntary manslaughter charges in the deaths of two men linked to an outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease in the Flint area, the highest ranking official to stand trial as a result of the scandal.Nick Lyon is accused of failing to issue a timely alert to the public about the outbreak. Judge David Goggins said deaths likely could have been prevented if the outbreak had been publicly known and keeping the public in the dark was “corrupt.”Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Director Nick Lyon will face trial on manslaughter charges for the deaths of two men during a Legionnaires’ disease outbreak during the Flint water crisis. (Terray Sylvester/The Flint Journal-MLive.com via AP)When the judge announced the decision, a woman in the gallery said, “Yes, yes, yes.”Some experts have blamed Legionnaires’ on the scandal over Flint’s water, which wasn’t properly treated when it was drawn from the Flint River in 2014 and 2015.Goggins found there’s probable cause for a trial. The legal standard isn’t as high as beyond a reasonable doubt.“It’s a long way from over,” Lyon told The Associated Press after the judge’s order. He declined further comment.The state says at least 90 cases of Legionnaires’ occurred in Genesee County, including 12 deaths. Lyon denies wrongdoing. His lawyers say sending the case to trial will “dangerously chill” public employees.The Legionnaires’ investigation is part of a larger probe into how Flint’s water system became poisoned when the city used Flint River water for 18 months. The water wasn’t treated to reduce corrosion. As a result, lead leached from old pipes.Lyon, director of the Health and Human Services Department, is the highest-ranking Michigan official charged in an investigation led by the attorney general’s office.An additional 14 current or former state and local officials have been charged with crimes, either related to Legionnaires’ or lead in the water. Four agreed to misdemeanor plea deals; the other cases are moving slowly.Legionella bacteria can emerge through misting and cooling systems, triggering a severe form of pneumonia, especially in people with weakened immune systems. The state says there were 90 cases reported to Genesee County Health Department in 2014-15, including 12 deaths. More than half of the people had a common thread: They spent time at McLaren Hospital, which was on the Flint water system.The outbreak was announced by Gov Rick Snyder and Lyon in January 2016, although Lyon concedes that he knew that cases were being reported a year earlier.“He had the chance to save lives,” special prosecutor Todd Flood told the court at a July 25 hearing.But Lyon’s attorneys have questioned the causes of death of two people cited by Flood. They also say there was much speculation about the cause and not enough solid information to share with the public.“It is not enough for the prosecutor to wave his hands in the air and cry bad things happened to the people of Flint so someone must be held responsible,” Lyon’s lawyers said in a court filing.last_img read more

How to stop auto playing videos

first_imgHow to stop auto playing videos by Martin Brinkmann on May 06, 2016 in Internet – Last Update: September 21, 2018 – 20 commentsMany sites throughout the Internet play videos automatically when you visit them. This can be video content that is published on the site or in form of advertisement displayed on the site.In the case of advertisement, most sites mute these videos by default but some are pushing it and turn on audio as well.Most web browsers ship with muting functionality to counter these without you having to hunt the tab where the sound is coming from these days, but muting won’t stop the video from playing.Auto playing videos are worse on mobile as most users are not on an unlimited plan which means that they eat away the monthly bandwidth quota and may also slow down other transfers while they play.Stop auto playing videosThe following guide provides you with information on how to stop the auto playing of videos in desktop and mobile web browsers. Please note that some browsers don’t offer functionality to block videos from playing automatically.I have talked about this back in 2015 and while the article still holds true for the most part, updates have been released and new methods discovered that justify this new guide.Also, it covers popular browsers besides Firefox and Chrome as well.Flash vs HTML5Websites and services use two technologies when it comes to videos: Flash or HTML5. Flash is on a downwards spiral but still used especially when desktop browsers are used to connect to sites, but HMTL5 is the rising star that is taking over (and dominant on mobile platforms).Flash content can be set to click to play in most browsers which prevents it from loading automatically. This means however that you will have to click on those elements on web pages if you want the content to play.Another difference between Flash and HTML5 media is that HTML5 media will still be downloaded (buffered) even if you block it from playing automatically.Mozilla FirefoxFirefox users can block the auto play of Flash and HTML5 video in the web browser directly without the use of add-ons.Firefox and HTML5 videosStarting with Firefox 63/64: Mozilla changed the browser’s default behavior. The preference media.autoplay.default defines whether autoplay is enabled, blocked, or if users get a prompt when media with sound autoplays.Load about:config?filter=media.autoplay.default in the address bar.Set the preference to 0=allow, 1=block, or 2=prompt.Starting with Firefox 41, Mozilla’s implementation has become even better in regards to HTML5 videos that autoplay.As is the case for many things in Firefox, a preference is provided that defines whether HTML5 videos play automatically or not.The following method works for desktop and mobile versions of FirefoxLoad about:config in the address bar of the browser.Confirm that you will be careful if a first-time message is displayed.Use search to find media.autoplay.enabled.Double-click on the preference to set it to false.This blocks auto playing HTML5 videos in the Firefox web browser.Firefox and Flash videoFlash video is only an issue on the desktop, and the best option to deal with it (besides removing Flash completely from the system), is to set the plugin to click to play so that it only activates when you want it to.Load about:addons in the Firefox address bar.Switch to plugins using the navigational menu displayed on the left.Locate Shockwave Flash and use the menu to the right of it to set it to ask to activate (which means click to play).Once done, all Flash content is not loaded by default but only when you allow it to.Google ChromeGoogle Chrome for the desktop and the mobile version of the browser share many similarities but also fundamental differences.Mobile Chrome does not support extensions or plugins for instance which limits it significantly when it comes to auto playing content on the Internet.Chrome and HTML5Google Chrome ships without an option to block HTML5 videos from auto playing.Extensions are available that aim to fill the gap, but since mobile Chrome does not support extensions, they are only of use when it comes to the desktop version of the web browser.This means that there is no way currently to block auto playing HTML5 videos in the mobile Chrome browser.Here is a short selection of extensions that you may want to try:Disable HTML5 Autoplay: Stops all HTML audio and video from using autoplay on all websites according to the developer.Video Autoplay Blocker: blocks HTML5 video only (not audio).Chrome and FlashThe following applies only to the desktop version of the Google Chrome web browser as the mobile version does not support plugins including Flash.Load chrome://settings/content in the browser’s address bar.Locate the plugins section on the page that opens.Switch the setting to let me choose when to run plugin content.This blocks Flash content from playing automatically on sites that you open in the browser.OperaThe Opera browser is based on Chromium/Blink (the same source as Google Chrome).

Puerto Ricans reject constitutional amendments

first_img“I came to vote because they killed my only son six months ago,” Aurea Elicea said as she wiped away tears.Limiting bail would prevent suspects from intimidating witnesses and killing again while out on bail, she said, adding that her son’s killer hasn’t been arrested.“That is why people don’t testify,” she said.The referendum came just weeks after federal prosecutors charged a man with murder and held him two weeks without bail only to release him after saying they had the wrong person.It was a case still fresh in the minds of voters like Daisa Rivera, 30, who said there should always be a presumption of innocence.Rivera also she said she didn’t believe the money saved from shrinking the legislature would be put to good use, but others expressed anger that Puerto Rico’s legislature is among the highest paid of any U.S. jurisdiction and that a number of corruption cases have surfaced in recent years.“Everyone knows they are stealing a lot and they are making a lot of money,” said 59-year-old Jose Calderon, who voted in support of the proposed changes.It was the second time Puerto Ricans have said no to changing the right to bail. Fifty-four percent of voters in a 1994 referendum rejected a proposal that would have allowed judges to withhold bail in any case, regardless of the crime charged. The referendum’s results mean Puerto Rico remains the only place in the Western Hemisphere where everyone is entitled to bail regardless of the alleged crime.“It is a time to celebrate because the people have saved our constitution and our rights,” said Arturo Hernandez, gubernatorial candidate for the Sovereign Union Movement, one of the island’s minority parties.Gov. Luis Fortuno and other members of his pro-statehood party lamented the bail change wasn’t approved.“This would have been a great tool to fight crime,” Fortuno said as he thanked the families of victims who supported the measure.The island of nearly 4 million people reported a record 1,117 homicides last year, and the drug-fueled violence continues unabated, with an increasing number of innocent bystanders being killed.Senate President Thomas Rivera Schatz said he accepted the defeat but added that he doesn’t regret supporting the proposed amendments.“We defended our principles,” he said.Fortuno’s campaign director, Angel Cintron, also accepted the preliminary results.“It’s not what we expected,” he said. “It differs from our projection and we have to recognize that.” The bail amendment would have granted judges the right to deny bail to those accused of premeditated murder, killing a police officer or killing someone in a public space or during a home invasion, sexual assault or drive-by shooting.The legislative amendment would have reduced the number of Senate seats from 27 to 17 and the number of House seats from 51 to 39.Supporters of amending the constitution argued the bail changes would cut crime and said the legislature reduction would make the body more efficient as well as save money that politicians pledged would be used to fight crime.“This is one of the most important referendums in many years,” said Alexandra Beltran, a San Juan resident who voted in the upscale neighborhood of Ocean Park accompanied by her husband and young daughter. “I believe it’s time we do something to intimidate criminals.”Hundreds of thousands of voters walked, drove, cycled, skateboarded and used wheelchairs to get to polling stations across Puerto Rico on Sunday and stood in long lines, sometimes under a brutal sun.At polling stations in the impoverished seaside town of Loiza, some voters decried the wave of violence that has hit their town especially hard.

Fifty-five percent opposed the bail measure and 45 percent supported it. Sponsored Stories (Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

AIME Record results for BESydney

first_imgImage: Business Events Sydney Not to be outdone by the Melbourne Convention Bureau’s stellar events outlook, Business Events Sydney (BESydney) has announced their most successful calendar year on record at AIME this week.60,237 delegates visited Sydney for 91 events over a total of 244,453 delegate days in 2012, resulting in an additional AUD$220 million dollars for the NSW economy.Some of the large conferences delivered by BESydney in 2012 included: the Worldwide Chinese Life Insurance Congress with 3,400 delegates; the Tupperware Indonesia Incentive with 2,361 delegates; and the 16th International Congress on Dietetics with 2,270 delegates.64 events have currently been secured for 2013 expected to attract more than 50,000 business visitors and attracting an estimated economic impact of AUD$167.1 million to NSW.”We’ve hit the ground running this year. It’s been a great start to 2013 for us as well as for Sydney and NSW,” BESydney CEO Lyn Lewis-Smith said.Ms Lewis-Smith also discussed the success of BESydney in shifting the focus on business events in NSW to include both the visitor and knowledge economies, with the sector now considered a key factor in the State’s economic development platform.”It’s now understood at high and broad levels that business events are worth far more than the tally of tourism receipts,” Ms Lewis-Smith said.”Business events contribute to a healthy, global knowledge economy. The work we do to secure these events for NSW is now being embraced by the NSW Government as part of an aligned economic development strategy.”BESydney’s global Ambassador program will be expanded as part of the NSW Government’s ‘A Platform for Growth: The NSW Economic Development Framework’ which outlines how business and government can collaborate more effectively, invest in critical infrastructure and raise the global profile of Sydney and NSW.The bureau will also have a seat at the table to develop the Global Talent Hub initiative which will work with the Committee for Sydney, the NSW Government and leading businesses to leverage off the talent pool of international delegates at business events who may be interested in moving to NSW to study, invest, teach or conduct research.Source = e-Travel Blackboard: N.A.last_img read more

Green light for CyprusEgypt business association

first_imgEgypt’s minister of trade and industry has given the green light for its end of a Cyprus-Egypt business association to go ahead even though an agreement to set it up was made in 2001.Aly Basha, commercial counselor at the Egyptian embassy in Nicosia told the Cyprus Mail that he had initiated the move to ensure the association could finally get off the ground.The Egyptian delegation to the association will be headed by Saeed Ahmed, the chairman of Nile Linen Group, one of the leading Egyptian manufacturers of home textiles. The head of the Cypriot side in the association is Andreas Christofides, managing director of KPMG Cyprus.The association aims to further boost trade and investment between Egypt and Cyprus, which have been stepped up in recent years, particularly in the energy field.Basha hailed the decision of the Egyptian ministry to green-light the effort and said he would start talks with both sides to hold the first joint meeting of the association before the end of the year.“Taking this decision now on the part of Egypt reflects how strong, and how much potential our commercial relations have,” he said.  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?
