OPED More Attawapiskats on the horizon writes former Aboriginal Affairs deputy minister

first_imgBy Scott SersonAPTN National NewsThe situation in Attawapiskat shouldn’t come as any surprise to Canadians.During the press conference on the release of  the 2011 Status Report, retiring  interim Auditor General John Wiersema: “Government’s progress has also been unsatisfactory in the area of programs for First Nations on reserves. I am very disappointed that conditions on reserves have worsened and are well below the national average. The education gap between First Nations living on reserves and the general Canadian population has widened. Houses are in poor condition, and the housing shortage on reserves has increased. More than half of the drinking water systems on reserves still pose a significant risk to communities.”Canadians must ask why conditions on-reserve have worsened.To find a significant part of the answer, they need only look to what First Nations leaders have come to call “the 2 per cent cap”.In 1996 annual growth in federal transfers to First Nation governments for basic services, such as primary and secondary education, social welfare and child and family services, was capped at an arbitrary 2 per cent per year as a deficit fighting measure.That cap remains in place to this day long after that deficit was eliminated. As a consequence, funding for those services have not kept pace with inflation and population growth on reserve.In her May 2006 report, Auditor General Sheila Fraser put it this way: “Funding for First Nations programs has increased in recent years, but not at a rate equal to population growth. Indian and Northern Affairs Canada’s funding increased by only 1.6 percent, excluding inflation, in the five years from 1999 to 2004 while Canada’s Status Indian population, according to the Department, increased by 11.2 percent” (Chapter 5, p 147, paragraph 5.4).In addition to population growth and inflation, Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC) funding for province-like programs is supposed to reflect benefits and service levels of comparable programs in the provinces. The department tries to meet this standard but, with the cap in place, they are forced to reallocate funds.In their 2006 Cost Drivers Report, the department calculated that, by 2004-05, they had already been forced to transfer $500 million from discretionary programs like housing to basic province-like programs in an effort to match provincial investments.Given the deficit-fighting objective of this cap, First Nations had every right to expect that, when the deficit was eliminated, a fair assessment would be done and a new rate of transfer growth established. That didn’t happen.This treatment of First Nations’ governments stands in sharp contrast to the treatment of provincial governments. There are two primary federal fiscal transfers to support the provinces in their delivery of basic services to their citizens, the Canada Health and Social Transfers goes to all provinces and equalization provides support to the so-called have-not provinces.By 2009-10, the Canada Health and Social Transfers had increased by 33 per cent over the previous five years. Equalization received increases of 9.9 per cent in 2004-05 and 8.4 per cent in 2005-06 and a growth rate of 3.5 per cent for the subsequent 10 years.Granted, there have been new federal investments since this cap was put in place. However, many of these investments have been targeted programs, aimed at eliminating backlogs and filling socio- economic gaps. They do not help First Nations deal with population growth and inflation because the impact of those pressures has been greater than the growth in basic federal transfers.“Throwing money at this problem” will not solve it, but the federal government sitting down with First Nations to negotiate a system of transfers with a fair level of annual growth is a necessary step towards a solution. Until then we can expect to see more communities in crisis like Attawapiskat.–Scott Serson was a former deputy minister for Aboriginal Affairs from 1995 to 1999. He was also an advisor to former Assembly of First Nations National Chief Phil Fontaine. The views expressed are those of the writer.—Note. The attribution in the second paragraph has been corrected.

Consumers to pay more but many Canadian producers see rewards from US

Consumers to pay more, but many Canadian producers see rewards from U.S. drought by Terry Pedwell, The Canadian Press Posted Jul 12, 2012 7:58 pm MDT OTTAWA – Drought conditions across large swaths of the United States and parts of Europe are raising concerns about a food-price shock later this year.But while consumers brace to pay more for everything from corn flakes to bread and beef, many Canadian farmers hope to reap rewards from historically high grain prices.“It’s simple supply and demand,” said Myron Krahm, vice-president of the Manitoba Corn Growers Association.“The U.S. being the largest corn producer in the world, if they are suffering that just limits supply and prices in return run up.”Farmers south of the border will see just a fraction of the corn they expected in the spring when the ground was seeded, the U.S. Department of Agriculture warned earlier this week.That prediction sent the price of corn through the roof — up by about 30 per cent compared with just three weeks ago. Almost all other grain commodity prices are higher as well.If the better growing conditions hold in most major regions of Canada over the rest of this month, farmers will cash in, said Krahm.But while some farmers are seeing bumper crops, others are facing drought conditions similar to those in the U.S.Southern and Eastern Ontario are feeling it the most, said Agriculture and Agrifood Canada’s Trevor Hadwen.“It’s not quite as bad as the U.S.,” he said.“(But) approximately 40 per cent of the agricultural land in Ontario is in the record dry or extremely low (moisture level) category.”That’s equivalent to about 14,000 farms facing losses from drought conditions.One of those farms is owned by Markus Haerle, who grows corn, soybean and spring wheat in St. Isodore, about 75 kilometres east of Ottawa.“It is getting to a point where we see stress on the plants, especially corn is hurting the most,” said Haerle, whose land is cracked and dry.“If we don’t get rain in the next week, we can probably count on a 10 to 20 per cent reduction in yield.”Weather forecasts for the region show temperatures rising over the next week with little or no precipitation.And while warmer spring temperatures allowed farmers to plant crops in southern Ontario about two weeks earlier than normal this year, the corn is at a critical pollination stage over the next two weeks when hot temperatures and dry conditions can stunt the growth of ears and prevent kernels from fully developing.Grain prices have increased steadily over the last few years, and this year’s drought will only increase the potential for a price shock on store shelves, says John Cranfield with the Canadian Agricultural Economics Society.“This is something that’s going to be of a more serious concern, largely because we’ve just gone through a period of seeing particularly high commodity prices, especially for the staples like grains and feedstuffs that go into livestock production,” he said.“This drought is going to exacerbate that effect or continue it even further.”Higher prices for corn, for example, mean cost hikes for hamburger and steak because corn is used to feed cattle. As well, higher grain prices translate into higher costs for chicken and other grain-fed animals.Corn also is widely used as an ingredient in cereals, ketchup, bread and soft drinks, although it accounts for a small fraction of their costs compared with marketing and getting products onto store shelves.Even land prices are impacted as farmers in high-yield areas who benefit from higher grain prices use the money they earn to buy up scarce open fields so they can plant more crops next year.

Most young people not sure they will achieve their ideal retirement lifestyle

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Most young people not sure they will achieve their ideal retirement lifestyle MONTREAL – Young people apparently aren’t optimistic that they’ll enjoy a comfortable retirement, with 80 per cent of Canadians between the ages of 18 and 34 not very confident they can save enough money, a new poll suggests.Many young people are focusing on paying down debt rather than saving for their golden years, said the BMO study released Monday.The job market is extremely competitive and a lot of graduates aren’t able to find work and have significant debt, said Chris Buttigieg, senior manager in wealth planning strategy at BMO Financial Group.“So it’s a lot harder to think just beyond how are they going to put food on the table versus saving for their retirement which is 30, 40 years away,” Buttigieg said.The survey found that 94 per cent of respondents between the ages of 18 and 34 believe the Canada Pension Plan will play a role in providing funding for their retirement.“They will still need to fund their own retirement,” he said, noting the CPP pays out about an average of $500 a month.But young people did realize the need for a Registered Retirement Savings Plan. The BMO poll found that 91 per cent of those surveyed also expected to rely on their RRSPs. The deadline for this year’s contribution is March 1.Still, the survey found that 46 per cent of respondents were more concerned about paying down debt, with only one-in-four more concerned about their retirement savings. And 77 per cent feared outliving their retirement savings while almost three-quarters worried about being unable to afford the lifestyle they wanted.“You need to start early in terms of starting to save. When you’re young, time is on your side,” Buttigieg said from Toronto.Even a small amount of money in an RRSP will help, he said.“Once you get it into the RRSP it’s a contribution. So there’s a refund, potentially, that could be had,” he said, adding any tax refund could be used toward paying down debt.If a young person could save just $25 a month for retirement, starting at age 25, for the next 40 years that would mean just over $37,000 at a five per cent rate of return, he said.Over time, a young person should increase the amount saved monthly as income goes up, Buttigieg added.Among other findings, more than half of the young Canadians surveyed thought that their parents retirement looked better than what their own retirement will be.Buttigieg said many of their parents were more likely to retire with a defined pension plan from their employers. Only about 30 per cent of companies now offer employer pension plans, he added.He also said retirees have to be careful not to overspend in early retirement as they embark on travel, for example.Also in the survey, 82 per cent expected to fund their retirement from their employer pension plan; 86 per cent from other savings; 72 per cent from their spouse; and 66 per cent form an inheritance.The online survey was conducted by market research firm Pollara between Nov. 23-27 with a random sample of 1,000 Canadians 18 years of age and older. by LuAnn LaSalle, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 11, 2013 12:05 am MDT read more

Ban regrets Austrias decision to withdraw troops from UN mission in Golan

Austria is one of three countries – along with India and the Philippines – that contribute military personnel to the UN Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF), which monitors the 1974 disengagement accord between Syria and Israel after their 1973 war. “Austria has been a backbone of the mission and their withdrawal will affect the mission’s operational capacity,” UN spokesperson Martin Nesirky told reporters in New York. “We are in discussions with them about the timing of the withdrawal, and with other troop-contributing countries to provide replacement troops.”Austria reportedly cited a lack of freedom of movement and an unacceptable level of danger to its soldiers in deciding to withdraw. Since last November, UNDOF has had its peacekeepers seized by armed groups, its observation posts attacked and looted, and its freedom of movement curtailed. Mr. Ban, in a statement issued by his spokesperson, noted Austria’s “longstanding and valuable” contribution to UNDOF, and expressed his gratitude to those countries who are continuing to provide troops and military observers to the mission. “He calls on all parties to respect UNDOF’s freedom of movement and safety and security.” Mr. Ban also condemned the attack which injured two UNDOF peacekeepers today. Both are reported to be in stable condition after sustaining minor injuries after mortar rounds impacted in Camp Ziouani. This comes amid intense fighting between anti-Government elements and Syrian forces within the area of separation in the vicinity of Al Qataniyah and Al Qunaytirah.The Secretary-General underlined that any military activity in the area of separation has the potential to escalate tensions between Israel and Syria and to jeopardize the long-held ceasefire between the two countries.“The Secretary-General stresses once again that all concerned in the region must abide by international law and relevant Security Council resolutions, and calls on all to work for de-escalation of violence. He urges parties to strictly respect the disengagement agreement, to stop fighting in the area of separation and to refrain from any violation of the disengagement line.”Mr. Ban also noted that the Syria crisis, which has claimed more than 70,000 lives since fighting between the Government and opposition forces seeking to oust President Bashar Al-Assad began in March 2011, is having an increasingly destabilizing impact beyond its borders. “The Secretary-General is gravely concerned about the growing regional ramifications of the conflict. He calls on all parties to move swiftly toward a political solution that is the only way to end the violence and the terrible suffering of the Syrian people.” read more

UK new van market declines 61 in September

Demand for large vans remains solid, but fewer purchases of small and medium models pull overall numbers down.Pickup demand grows (8.8%) as UK remains most popular market in Europe for the body style.Year-to-date market down -3% on previous year, following record highs of 2015 and 2016.SEE LCV REGISTRATIONS BY BRANDDOWNLOAD PRESS RELEASE AND DATA TABLEThe British light commercial vehicle (LCV) market contracted last month according to figures released today by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT). Just under 54,000 new LCVs were registered in the second busiest month of the year to date, a -6.1% decrease in line with the overall trend so far in 2018.Demand for pickups has continued to grow, with registrations up 8.8%, as sales of small and medium-sized vans declined by -42.9% and -14.4% respectively. Meanwhile, although large vans experienced a modest -4.0% decrease, they have retained their market-leading share.In the year to date, registrations are down by -3.0%, with 274,247 new LCVs joining British roads. Overall, however, the market remains at historic high levels that have been maintained since August 2015, with pickups enjoying a 4.6% boost so far this year taking them to more than 42,000 units registered.Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive, said,We have seen fluctuations in UK van registrations so far this year, but the overall downward trend shows that there is some hesitancy in the market. Businesses need certainty to invest and future growth now depends on government providing the right economic conditions to encourage operators to renew their fleets. Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) read more

Baseball Ohio State drops two of three to Michigan on the road

Junior relief pitcher Seth Kinker delivers a 1-1 pitch to UNCG sophomore second baseman Austin Embler in the top of the sixth inning Credit: Edward Sutelan | Lantern ReporterIt was clear last season that the Ohio State baseball team had Michigan’s number after going 5-0 against their rivals for the first time in school history. This season, it seems the tables have turned as the Wolverines took two out of three from the Buckeyes in Ann Arbor, Michigan.Over the course of the weekend, OSU (18-29, 6-12) scored six runs and 22 hits, while surrendering 13 runs and 21 hits to No. 17 Michigan (35-11,11-7). Though the hits were leaning in the Buckeyes’ favor, they struck out a total of 40 times over the three-game series. The pair of losses to the Wolverines puts the Buckeyes in a tough spot in the Big Ten standings, falling two games behind Michigan State for the No. 8 spot in the standings, leaving them currently on the outside looking in for the 2017 Big Ten tournament.Game 1The Buckeyes could manage only seven hits in a dominant all-around performance by Michigan junior starting pitcher Oliver Jaskie in Friday’s 6-0 loss to the Wolverines.For five innings of this game, OSU stayed within striking distance, trailing just 1-0 heading into the sixth inning.With two outs in the bottom of the sixth inning, things began to unravel for OSU redshirt senior starting pitcher Jake Post. A walk and a double put a pair in scoring position for senior center fielder Johnny Slater. Slater, owning the game’s only RBI to that point, tripled to right field, scoring both runners and pushing his team ahead 3-0.The next batter was senior catcher Harrison Wenson who launched a two-run home run, putting the Wolverines up to a commanding 5-0 lead and sending Post to the bench.An RBI double from junior first baseman Jake Bivens in the eighth extended Michigan’s lead to 6-0, providing their starter with a comfortable cushion heading into the ninth.The Buckeyes were able to load the bases in the ninth with two outs against Jaskie, but a groundout to third base sent the Wolverines home happy with a 6-0 victory in Game 1.Jaskie gave the Wolverines all they could ask for on Friday night, delivering a complete-game shutout, holding the Buckeyes to just seven hits and one walk with 14 strikeouts. Only freshman right fielder Dominic Canzone was able to put up multiple hits against the third-year starting pitcher.Game 2Canzone continued his hot hitting into Saturday’s game, but his bat was not enough to propel his team to a win as the Buckeyes fell 5-2 to the Wolverines. With two on and two out in the top of the third inning, Canzone drove in the Buckeyes’ first run of the series with an RBI single to left-center field, giving his team their first lead of the series. But the Wolverines quickly tied the game up with a sacrifice fly in the bottom half of the inning.The next inning, the Wolverines took the lead on an RBI double from junior third baseman Drew Lugbauer.The score remained at 2-1 until the bottom of the eighth inning when Michigan capitalized on a series of defensive mistakes. With one out and two runners aboard, sophomore designated hitter Nick Poirier singled to left field to drive in one run, but a fielding error by the left fielder allowed a second run to come around and score. Another fielding error by the second baseman later in the inning allowed Michigan’s fifth run to score.The Buckeyes made one last effort to get on the board in the top of the ninth when sophomore designated hitter Andrew Fishel drove in a run on an RBI double, but the team’s rally fell short in its 5-2 loss.The bats of OSU’s offense were again largely held in check by the opposing starting pitcher, as Michigan junior starting pitcher Alec Rennard struck out eight batters, and allowed just one run on five hits and one walk over seven innings of work.Game 3Making his first career start, junior pitcher Seth Kinker held the Wolverines in check and redshirt senior designated hitter Zach Ratcliff provided the runs in OSU’s 4-2 win over Michigan on Sunday.The game was kept scoreless until the bottom of the fifth inning when an infield single and squeeze bunt managed to push a pair of runs home for the Wolverines and give them the 2-0 lead.But the next inning, Ratcliff came up to the plate with the bases loaded, and for the second time this season, he cashed in a grand slam over the left field wall. The last time he hit a grand slam was on April 5 when he sent a game-tying round-tripper over the left field wall in OSU’s eventual 9-8 victory over Kent State.Making his first career start, Kinker kept the Wolverine bats at bay for much of the game, limiting them to just four runs on four hits and two walks with three strikeouts over six innings of work. He had steadily become familiar with making extended outings on Sundays, previously setting a career-high in innings pitched on April 23, and going 4.1 innings in relief last Sunday against Nebraska.Redshirt junior starting pitcher Adam Niemeyer, making only his second appearance since March 25 (elbow tendinitis), notched his first career save with three shutout innings, allowing just two hits and striking out three batters.The Buckeyes will return home against Bowling Green on Tuesday and Ball State on Wednesday, before heading back out on the road to face Iowa next weekend. Their game against Bowling Green is scheduled for a 6:35 p.m. first pitch. read more

BuzzFeed Instagram to Fund 15 Video Creators IGTV Projects

first_img Popular on Variety Applications for VerticalU can be submitted starting Friday, Oct. 26, through Nov. 7 on BuzzFeed’s website (more info at this link; the application form is at this link). Candidates (either individually or as duos) must submit a story idea along with an explanation of why they deserve a spot in the program.For Facebook-owned Instagram, the program is a way to encourage more creators to upload their videos to IGTV, using techniques specific to the vertical-video platform. IGTV, launched in June, allows creators to upload videos up to 10 minutes long. So far, Instagram hasn’t provided revenue-sharing or other monetization options for IGTV, positioning the longer-form video features as a way for Instagrammers to connect with their fanbase.BuzzFeed, for its part, is interested in finding and cultivating untapped talent who can make original content with viral appeal for millennials.“With 98% of time spent on mobile happening in vertical format, BuzzFeed wants to help content creators develop the skills to crack emerging platforms and grow their audiences on Instagram,” said Maycie Timpone, BuzzFeed’s director of social media. “Our goal is to push the envelope and find ways to elevate the vertical-first experience for our audience on mobile.”Content creators accepted into the VerticalU program will own the rights to their videos, and BuzzFeed will license the content for distribution on IGTV.IGTV is “a place for the next generation of stars to shine and connect more deeply with their communities,” commented Lila King, Instagram’s head of news publishing partnerships. “We’re thrilled to work with BuzzFeed, a leader and innovator in social video, to find and support the next wave of storytellers as they launch new projects.”The 15 selected students will attend an all-expenses-paid trip to Los Angeles for tutorial and mentoring sessions from Dec. 3-7, 2018, to be held at the L.A. offices of BuzzFeed and Instagram. Classes will be led by producers, directors and execs from BuzzFeed and Instagram as well as “special guests.” Topics for the mobile-video training sessions are set to include what makes videos go viral; how vertical video is different from horizontal format; data measurement; and video-production basics about cameras, lighting, sound, legal issues, set design and casting. Have two months free — and a killer idea for a vertical-format original video? BuzzFeed and Instagram want to hear from you.The companies have launched VerticalU, a program for 15 young video creators to participate in a training program on producing content for IGTV. BuzzFeed and Instagram also will fund the vertical-video “passion projects” from those selected, who will have the chance for their work to be featured on BuzzFeed’s IGTV channel.VerticalU participants will be required to make a seven-week-plus commitment, including attending an on-site, five-day series of tutorials in Los Angeles. According to BuzzFeed and Instagram, they are looking for “thoughtful, creative pitches that represent diverse points of view and underrepresented topics, which will shine in IGTV’s vertical mobile format.” Following the L.A. training, each VerticalU student will work with a designated BuzzFeed “mentor” to help develop their idea. The creators also will receive a one-time grant to cover filming expenses for their projects over the course of six weeks.The VerticalU creators will debut their videos to at a screening event in early 2019 in New York City (with the date TBD).VerticalU is open to U.S. residents 18 or older who have an active, public Instagram account. Finalists will be contacted for a phone interview by Nov. 19. The companies said the 15 VerticalU participants will be selected based on the content and quality of their pitch and will be expected to execute the project by the conclusion of the program. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Researchers study knifewielding robots w Video

first_img The researchers were from the Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics, which is a branch of DLR, the German Aerospace Center at Wessling. They used a 14 kg DLR Lightweight Robot III robot arm capable of holding a range of knives, scissors, a scalpel, and a screwdriver. The articulated arm has a reach of 1.1 meters, and is moderately flexible, and unlike other robots is fitted with position sensors and torque sensors in every joint.The aims of the experiments were to determine what would happen if domestic robots were trained to use bladed tools commonly found in the home and accidentally struck human soft tissue, and to develop a collision detection system to limit injuries. The results showed in some scenarios when the safety system was turned off the robots inflicted wounds that could have been lethal. The scientists say they have reservations about ever training robots to use knives and other bladed tools in the home, but their research and the safety system they developed will help researchers to develop safer robots. © 2010 PhysOrg.com The robot arm was programmed to use the tools to cut, puncture, and stab at different speeds. Tests were carried out on a leg of pork and a lump of silicone, materials simulating human soft tissue. The robot used different maneuvers to strike the materials. Limited tests were also carried out on the arm of a human volunteer (leader of the research team, Sami Haddadin), and in this case a safety system including a prototype collision detector developed by the research team was turned on to limit injuries. When the robot was used with the silicone and pork leg the safety system was turned off and the puncture and stab wounds produced by the robot arm were deep and in some cases would have been serious enough to be lethal if made on a living subject. With the safety system turned on the depth of cuts was reduced and sometimes were prevented altogether.The research is believed to be the first to study injuries from bladed tools, although there have been studies of injuries that could be inflicted by robots bumping into people. The paper was presented last week by scientists Sami Haddadin, Gerd Hirzinger and Alin Albu-Schaffer at the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA 2010) in Alaska. Scientists study robot-human interactions Explore furthercenter_img (PhysOrg.com) — Many people have dreamed of robots helping around the house, vacuuming the carpets, making the beds, and chopping vegetables in the kitchen. Now a new study has found such robots could pose a danger to humans if they use sharp implements such as steak knives.

This project reinforces GE’s commitment to healthymagination which works to bring new technologies and solutions to more people.The Pediatrics Populations project, funded by the Third Frontier program through the State of Ohio, will address the lack of pediatric magnetic resonance imaging coils and surgical stabilization devices with integrated imaging coils by creating industrial-academic collaboration. GEHC Coils Inc., a wholly owned, Ohio-based subsidiary of the General Electric Company, is teaming up with clinicians and researchers at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Ohio State University to design, build and validate new pediatric coils for use in the head, heart and other anatomies as well as new solutions for surgical magnetic resonance pediatric fixation. “Use of coils designed for adults result in poor resolution or inability to image small body structures in children,” said Jim Davis, general manager of GE Healthcare’s MR business. “This collaboration will help us produce images with superior clarity to help clinicians improve imaging of pediatric patients.”Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) has become the diagnostic imaging modality of choice for many disease states. MRI has the ability to display anatomy in exquisite detail and provides radiologists multiple ways to examine living tissue without surgery or radiation. “The grant will allow us to explore the development of coils that will give us the ability to visualize a wide range of anatomy that varies in size,” said Davis. “Specialized imaging coils and surgical stabilization devices specifically targeting anatomy for young children would be extremely valuable in enhancing the ability to obtain diagnostic images, and improve the quality of healthcare for sick children,” added Davis.
