Nova Scotia’s tall, green Christmas gift for Boston is wrapped and ready for sending after a celebration in Lorne, Pictou Co., today, Nov. 17. “This is a wonderful way for Nova Scotia to send a big thank you to the people of Boston for helping our province in our time of need back in 1917,” said Randy Delorey, Minister of Finance and Treasury Board, on behalf of acting-Natural Resources Minister Zach Churchill. “We are grateful to Andrea and Bill MacEachern for donating this beautiful big tree to represent our province.” The 15-metre (49-feet) white spruce from the MacEacherns’ property is about 72-years-old. It will be given to Boston as part of Nova Scotia’s annual thank you for the city’s response after the 1917 Halifax explosion. Boston was quick to provide medical personnel and supplies in the aftermath of the explosion that killed 2,000 and left thousands more injured and/or homeless. “We are very proud and pleased to let our tree represent Nova Scotia in Boston,” said Andrea MacEachern. “I ran the Boston Marathon on its 100th anniversary in 1996, so there is a special connection for us and this is a big thrill,” said Bill MacEachern. The tree was cut on the MacEacherns’ property by staff and students from the environmental technologies program at the Nova Scotia Community College Strait Area Campus. The tree-cutting ceremony included Mr. Delorey, Pictou County Warden Ronald Baillie, more than 100 local school children, Pictou County’s Carillon Singers, a Nova Scotia conservation officer, and a visit from Santa Claus. Television meteorologist Cindy Day acted as emcee. A public send-off for the tree will be held at the Grand Parade in Halifax, Wednesday, Nov. 18, at 11:30 a.m. The Nova Scotia Mass Choir and Pictou County singer-songwriter, Dave Gunning, will perform. People are invited to sign a thank you book for Boston. The tree will also make a stop in Truro and Amherst for public-viewing opportunities. The tree lighting will take place on the Boston Common, Dec. 3, at a ceremony that attracts about 30,000 people and is broadcast live on the ABC television affiliate in Boston. Nova Scotians can help continue the tradition by recommending the perfect Nova Scotia tree for Boston, for future years. Anyone knowing of a white or red spruce or balsam fir that is 12 to 15-metres high (40-50 feet), with good symmetry, and easy road access, should contact their local Natural Resources office at www.novascotia.ca/natr/staffdir/offices.asp . Details on this year’s tree-cutting ceremony are at http://novascotia.ca/treeforboston.

Bengaluru: EPFO will launch an e-inspection system that will simplify inspection process and ensure organisations with open communications will not be subject to physical inspection until absolutely necessary, according to Central Provident Fund Commissioner Sunil Barthwal. EPFO (Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation) proposed to amend the Act to limit enquiry period to a maximum of two years in order to curtail harassment, he also said at a Confederation of Indian Industry-organised interactive session last Friday, a CII release said. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’A small percentage of employees are unable to generate UAN (a 12-digit Universal Account Number to all employees entitled to EPF) due to mismatch in data, Barthwal said, adding to address this issue, the EPFO is looking at alternative authentication vis-a-vis the employee database. “The EPFO is working towards a three-day settlement period for KYC (Know Your Customer) compliant beneficiaries who have UAN linked to Aadhaar, have a bank account and a registered mobile number,” the release quoted him as saying. Barthwal also proposed to set up a society of self-regulating consultants, similar to ICAI (The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India), in order to curb “misuse and corruption.” “In a significant announcement for industry he proposed to decriminalise defaulters and treat the cases as economic offences,” the release said.
HALIFAX – Nova Scotia’s medical examiner says he’ll consider ordering a public inquiry into the death of a former Canadian soldier who fatally shot his wife, daughter and mother if a provincial review of the man’s mental health treatment doesn’t lead to changes.The provincial Justice Department had provided a statement last week stating Dr. Matthew Bowes had decided against ordering a judicial inquiry into the death of Lionel Desmond, a 33-year-old veteran of the war in Afghanistan who suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder.But Bowes clarified Thursday that if he concludes a hospital review of Desmond’s treatment was incomplete, he’d consider using his rarely exercised power to call for a judicial inquiry under the province’s Fatality Inquiries Act.“Certainly, for me, it’s a ‘No’ right now because for me it doesn’t make sense to order a public policy renewal mechanism when there’s already one occurring,” he said in a telephone interview.“But I’ll be watching the results of that (review) very thoroughly, and if it’s not satisfactory and it’s not comprehensive, if it’s not fulsome and it doesn’t result in recommendations and if it doesn’t result in system change I’m certainly willing to re-examine that issue.”Desmond took his own life after shooting his 52-year-old mother, his wife Shanna, 31, and their 10-year-old daughter Aaliyah.The Jan. 3 killings in Upper Tracadie, N.S., prompted a difficult debate over soldiers with PTSD, domestic violence and what should be done to prevent such tragedies.Catherine Hartling, Shanna Desmond’s aunt, has called for some form of public inquiry.Hartling has said some family members want to find out more about Desmond’s treatment and the mental health care he was supposed to receive, but remain too devastated by the events to speak publicly about their desires for an inquiry.Bowes said he hasn’t contacted the families, but would take their views into consideration if he does speak to them.Desmond served in Afghanistan in 2007, and had received treatment from a joint personnel support unit for a year prior to his release from the military in July 2015. Such units provide support to ill and injured soldiers, including mental injuries.Relatives of Desmond have said that after his release he had also sought treatment from the mental health unit at St. Martha’s Regional Hospital in Antigonish.Following the deaths, Premier Stephen McNeil said the province’s health authority will review what services were provided and what protocols were followed.However, that review is conducted under the province’s Quality Improvement Information Protection Act and is kept confidential, though next of kin are eligible to receive a list of recommendations.Bowes — who has been medical examiner for 13 years — said in an interview that he was inquiring with the health authority about what portions of the report he would be receiving, adding he hadn’t yet viewed the detailed report or its recommendations.PTSD has been the top diagnosis for the hundreds of troops released from the military for medical reasons every year since at least 2014. Some 18 military personnel took their own lives in 2015, many of whom had sought some type of mental-health treatment shortly before their deaths.The Canadian Forces and Veterans Affairs have opened specialized clinics, hired more staff and cut red tape in recent years to provide better care and support as more military personnel have come forward seeking help for PTSD and other disorders.But some are questioning whether Ottawa and the provincial health authorities have done enough.Robin Whitford, an Ottawa resident whose husband suffered from PTSD after serving in the military, said in an interview Thursday that the failure to order a public inquiry into the Desmond case prompted her to write a letter to the prime minister on Wednesday.“A government that says it cares about the well being of all soldiers, veterans and their families, would surely want to know how this could have happened,” she wrote in the letter.“With the amount of money and resources that is spent on the very programs and services that are supposed to help support injured vets and their families should we simply accept these kinds of tragedies as unavoidable consequences of war?”“Please show us that this is not acceptable, that the lives of the Desmond family mattered.”
VICTORIA, B.C. – As Northern B.C. Ground Search and Rescue groups prepare for the summer, the Provincial Government is bolstering their operations with more than $1 million in provincial funding.According to the Government, this allocation in funding comes from an investment of $18.6 million that the Province is providing over the next three years to support Search and Rescue efforts in Northern B.C.The funding will be used towards training, support and the purchasing of equipment. Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General, Mike Farnworth, says this funding fills an immediate need and will allow groups to continue their work.Farnworth adds that while they are providing funds to Search and Rescue groups, he says British Columbians need to do their part when it comes to outdoor safety.“This historic level of funding fills an immediate need, so these ground search and rescue organizations can continue to do their great work. And while we help support these volunteers with more funding to do their work, British Columbians can do their part by being prepared to go into the outdoors.”More information on the B.C.

LeBron James is the most popular player in the NBA, according to the latest ESPN Sports Poll.For the first time in four years, nearly 13 percent (12.9) of NBA fans said James was their favorite player in the league this season. Of Kobe Bryant, who came in a close second, 12.5 percent of the fans said he is their favorite.The 2008-09 season was the only other time when the Miami Heat star passed Bryant as the top fan pick. The Lakers star won the honor five of six years, from 2006-07 to 2011-12.“The Decision,” a 2010 televised special in which NBA player LeBron James announced that he would switch teams, caused the recent NBA champion’s popularity to decline. In his last season in Cleveland, 15.6 percent of fans thought he was their favorite but after “The Decision” was aired, his popularity went down to 9.4 percent.James has won back-to-back NBA finals, which may have led to his current spike in popularity.
Anyone who’s had a few too many the night before knows the pain and discomfort of waking up with a hangover the following morning. Your head is pounding, and even the quietest of sounds rings inside your skull. You also feel sick, and light of any kind is not welcome. So while a hangover is something everyone wants to avoid, it may just be the answer to helping alcoholics kick the habit.A research team led by Dr. Juan Asenjo, director of the Cell Dynamics and Biotechnology department at the University of Chile, has developed a new vaccine for alcoholics that induces a hangover the moment any alcohol is introduced into their system.A hangover is caused by the compound acetaldehyde. This is produced by the liver when dealing with alcohol before it is broken down and metabolized by an enzyme. The vaccine stops the enzyme doing its job, with the result being the person very quickly feeling sick and uncomfortable, as if they have a hangover. Continuing to drink will just make the feeling worse or at least prolong it.Administering the vaccine can be done with a single injection, which is then active for between 6 to 12 months. It won’t be tested on human subjects until November of this year, and that’s pending a trial on mice in the coming months to determine the right dose of the vaccine. If successful, the vaccine could be brought to market by 2015.Alcohol withdrawal can be a difficult process to go through depending on how reliant the person is on alcohol. In fact, the effects of alcohol withdrawal may be much worse than having a bad hangover. That suggests this vaccine would be better used as an ongoing deterrent rather than a way of stopping alcoholics from drinking in the first place.More at The Santiago Times [Image credit: Silar]
Paludisme : des chercheurs auraient découvert un vaccin contre la maladieSelon une équipe de chercheurs australiens, une série de tests réalisés sur des souris a démontré l’efficacité d’un vaccin contre le paludisme. Grâce à ce produit, les globules blancs se mettraient à attaquer le parasite.Selon l’Organisation Mondiale de la Santé (OMS), en 2010, 219 millions de personnes ont été infectées par le paludisme (ou malaria) et 660.000 y ont succombé. La plupart des victimes étaient des enfants africains âgés de moins de 5 ans. Or, si des progrès sont réalisés, les choses ne s’améliorent pas vraiment puisque selon une étude publiée dans la revue Lancet, ces chiffres seraient sous-estimés. En réalité, ce serait quelque 1,2 million de personnes qui seraient mortes du paludisme en 2010. À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Toutefois, la tendance pourrait s’inverser dans les années à venir avec la découverte que viennent de faire des scientifiques australiens. Ces chercheurs ont annoncé avoir mis au point un vaccin potentiellement efficace contre plusieurs souches de paludisme. Comme l’indique Michael Good, de l’Université Griffith du Queensland, c’est la première fois qu’un vaccin prouve son efficacité sur plus de deux souches de paludisme sur des souris. En effet, chez celles qui ont reçu le vaccin, les globules blancs se sont mis à attaquer le parasite présent dans les globules rouges.”Une seule vaccination induit une profonde immunité aux différentes espèces de parasites du paludisme”, ont ainsi conclu les chercheurs qui ont publié mardi leurs résultats dans la revue Journal of Clinical Investigation. “Quand les globules blancs sont stimulés pour vaincre le paludisme, ils peuvent reconnaître les protéines à travers le parasite, y compris les protéines internes au parasite”, a ajouté le Dr Good, à la radio ABC. De plus, d’après les chercheurs, ce vaccin serait bon marché et facile à produire. Il serait donc tout à fait possible de le produire en grande quantité et ainsi de fournir un moyen efficace pour des populations entières de lutter contre le paludisme. Néanmoins, le chercheur a tenu à souligner qu’il ne faut “pas aller trop vite. Avant tout, il nous faut faire la démonstration que le vaccin fonctionne sur les humains”, a-t-il ajouté repris par l’AFP.Le 3 juillet 2013 à 19:17 • Maxime Lambert

Every time Babar Azam strides out to the middle and plays an innings of substance, he is compared with Indian captain Virat Kohli. The young Pakistan batsman has been a prolific run-scorer for Pakistan in the recent past and he is one of the consistent performers at the number three position.Despite all the comparisons and pressure being heaped upon him, Azam himself believes that he is still learning the game and that he watches Virat Kohli bat a lot and models his own game according to the Indian captain.”I watch his batting and the way he bats in various conditions and try to learn from them,” Babar told reporters ahead of the much-anticipated India-Pakistan clash on Sunday.He also said that he is trying to learn every day and watching Kohli bat is one way of trying to inculcate things. He also aims to achieve Virat Kohli’s winning per cent. Virat KohliDaniel Kalisz/Getty Images”I try to learn with experience. This is my process of learning, so I try my hundred per cent. His (Kohli) winning ratio is higher (for India) so I am trying to achieve that as well,” he further added.India take on Pakistan in Manchester and owing to India’s record against the arch-rivals in World Cups, Sarfaraz Ahmed’s side will be under pressure, but Babar believes the side will do well as they showed in the Champions Trophy.”The Champions Trophy win gave us confidence and will also help here as well because the team is mostly the same and that win is always an inspiration,” Babar said.Kapil Dev predicts the outcome of the match Virat Kohli, Jasprit BumrahGLYN KIRK/AFP/Getty ImagesAdding to the anticipation, former Indian captain Kapil Dev predicted that the current Indian side led by Virat Kohli has the pedigree to beat Pakistan seven out of 10 times.”But I feel when I was playing the Pakistan team was much better than us. Today I can say that if they play 10 matches, India will win seven. India are far better than Pakistan… What happens that day God knows,” Kapil was as quoted by PTI.He also believes that the Indian bowling attack was one of the best and the fact that Jasprit Bumrah is ranked the number one bowler in the world is a clear indication that Indian bowling has come a long way.”When I saw him (Bumrah) first time I thought that he will not have such ability. I changed my word and I say, God, he is really fantastic. From such a short run-up he can produce from such an awkward run-up so much pace. I just want him to be fit for the next five years,” he further added.
Kolkata: With West Bengal’s ruling Trinamool Congress and emerging opposition BJP intensifying their fight ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, capturing and recapturing each other’s party offices have become a regular occurrence. Supporters of the BJP’s Coochbehar candidate Nisith Pramanik, who recently switched to the saffron party from the Trinamool, have allegedly recaptured a “Trinamool-acquired party office” at Bamanhat market in Coochbehar district. Also Read – Bose & Gandhi: More similar than apart, says Sugata Bose “My association with Trinamool was a sin. The BJP is like the holy Ganges. Our supporters clean the party office with water from the holy river,” he said after taking over the office. BJP supporters alleged that the party office was “built by the party but Trinamool Congress acquired it ahead of last year’s panchayat elections”. Taking a jibe at Pramanik, Trinamool district President Rabindranath Ghosh accused him of being a turncoat.

Singh says the office was built by him. Later, Trinamool Congress “recaptured” the office.

Go back to the enewsletterVisit Sunshine Coast CEO Simon Latchford with Chef Cameron Matthews at Spicers Potts PointVisit Sunshine Coast is planning to take its new multi-day Curated Plate Food Festival to not only the domestic market but also to an international audience, backed by the Queensland Government.The event was first announced in October last year, and aims to shine a spotlight on the Sunshine Coast’s acclaimed produce and producers. Sustainable practices, artisan culture and health and wellness will form key themes of the festival, with local experiences from food trails to farm tours. Rather than being centred on one locale, Curated Plate will showcase the entire region’s “food footprint”, between 8 and 11 August 2019.In Sydney last week to ramp up awareness of the festival, Visit Sunshine Coast CEO Simon Latchford said he’d used his knowledge and experience with developing a similar successful food project – Margaret River Gourmet Escape – in a prior role with Margaret River Tourism seven years ago.Latchford, who has been with Visit Sunshine Coast (VSC) for four years, said the region’s foodie scene was booming, and not just limited to one specific destination: from macadamia nut farms in the hinterland to the largest fishery on the Australian eastern seaboard, to the produce in Mary Valley and the Glasshouse Mountains, to eating with Indigenous people. “It’s the authenticity of the product that sets us apart,” he said.His vision for the past 2.5 years has been to develop a unique event that capitalises on the Sunshine Coast’s culinary offering, which he says has “killer pulling power on a global basis”.“The Curated Plate has been developed not to be just another food event located in a paddock, or a street, or a zone. It’s been designed to capture the depth and breadth of the food opportunities on the Sunshine Coast. All the way through from pineapples to macadamias, to seafood, the beef, to lamb, into the native foods,” Latchford said.He said the strategy was to have visitors explore the Sunshine Coast for a prolonged period, rather than having tourists solely experience, for instance, Mooloolaba’s seafood or one of Noosa’s restaurants, as wonderful as they, and then move on.“The Curated Plate is about spending a whole week within the region, moving through the area and experiencing all of the Sunshine Coast, not just one part. It is a microcosm. Our food story is natural, non-toxic, non-sprayed, non-commercial, easily available, 20-kilometre radius food to plate with some extraordinary talent.”Latchford said The Curated Plate won’t be in conflict with other existing foodie events, such as the long-running Noosa Food & Wine Festival, which he says will continue to “evolve and change”.It will be promoted both locally and to key international markets, he indicated.Details of the Queensland Government’s funding, along with a range of holiday packages to the Sunshine Coast incorporating Curated Plate, will be unveiled in coming weeks.Lead image: Visit Sunshine Coast’s CEO Simon Latchford is pictured with Chef Cameron Matthews (formerly of Spicers Clovelly Estate on the Sunshine Coast), flanked by VSC’s Liz Tuckett (left) and Lauren Grounsell.Go back to the enewsletter
Museum of Pop Culture set to open outpost in New York City by The Associated Press Posted Jun 5, 2018 10:14 am PDT Last Updated Jun 5, 2018 at 11:00 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – The Seattle-based Museum of Pop Culture is looking to expand to New York City.The new outpost would occupy a Manhattan building that is currently home to New York Public Library’s Science, Industry and Business Library.The museum covers all aspects of pop culture with exhibits ranging from Marvel comics to horror firms to the rock band Nirvana.Board Vice-President Chris McGowan says he could also envision New York-centric exhibit topics such as Broadway and hip-hop.The Wall Street Journal reports the building was purchased in 2016 by an affiliate company of museum founder Paul Allen, who also co-founded Microsoft.McGowan says the New York museum is expected to open in about four years.The specialized library’s services would then be absorbed into the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Library.___Information from: The Wall Street Journal, http://www.wsj.com
