MONTREAL – Winterized trailers will soon be replacing the tents providing temporary shelter to asylum-seekers who have crossed the Quebec-U.S. border, even as the number of irregular border crossings continues to drop.A spokesman for Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale says a contract has been awarded to a private company to provide heated accommodation for up to 200 people near the Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle border station.Scott Bardsley says half of the trailers should be operational by mid-November, with the second group coming into service a month later.The trailers will replace a temporary tent camp that was set up this summer in response to the flood of asylum seekers walking across the border from the United States.The federal government says there have been about 50 people a day crossing the border irregularly at Lacolle in recent weeks, down from 200-250 a day at the height of summer.RCMP intercepted 1,720 people in Quebec in September, compared to 5,530 in July.The new trailers will include areas for sleeping, cooking and “related services,” according to an email from Bardsley.Many of the new arrivals are Haitian nationals, who are believed to be coming to Canada because the U.S. government announced it is thinking about lifting the temporary protected status given to Haitian nationals after the deadly 2010 earthquake.Bardsley did not say whether the federal government was anticipating a new flood of arrivals if the U.S. administration does not renew the temporary protected status, which is set to expire in January.“The number of asylum seekers in Canada fluctuates over time and can depend on many different factors,” he wrote in an email.“We won’t speculate on any possible future trends, but we continuously monitor conditions and developments in other countries to inform our planning.”He stressed that the Liberal government has undertaken numerous outreach efforts to clear up misinformation about Canada’s immigration system that was circulated online.Those efforts have included sending Creole and Spanish-speaking MPs to the United States to dispel the myth that it’s easy to come to Canada as a refugee.The Immigration and Refugee Board said in early October that about half the asylum claims heard so far from those who crossed the border since July have been accepted.
OTTAWA – A big Canadian player has quietly picked up his chips and is heading for the exit amid the tumult over the Trudeau government’s controversial tax proposals.A business owner has informed John Manley, the head of an organization representing Canada’s largest corporations, that he has moved billions of dollars outside the country since the Liberals formally proposed their tax changes in mid-July.The government’s proposals to eliminate several tax incentives have awakened a broad array of vocal opponents — from the small business community, to farmers, to tax planners, to professionals like doctors and lawyers. Some backbench Liberal MPs have also publicly expressed their concerns.In the background, the Liberals’ proposed tax reforms are also seen as a threat by a much-smaller, more-silent group of Canadians: wealthy leaders of big business.Manley, a former Liberal finance minister in the Chretien government, said the elements of the government’s plan to tighten rules on passive investment portfolios and the transfer of family businesses have created worries for some members of his organization, the Business Council of Canada.The financial concerns have been compounded by the government’s accompanying messages that Manley believes have “vilified” higher-income Canadians.Many of his members, he added, have been taken aback by rhetoric that they see as pitting the middle class against the wealthy.“I don’t get it at all — I thought that one of the successes of Prime Minister (Justin) Trudeau was that he was the unifier, he was bringing people together,” said Manley, who noted the broader economy would eventually feel the sting of losing too many big job creators.“There’s lots of journeymen hockey players in the NHL, but you still want to have some (Connor) McDavids and (Wayne) Gretzkys and people that are stars.”Manley pointed to one example where a successful business owner has decided to leave Canada with “billions of dollars.”On the advice of tax professionals, he said the individual decided to move the money primarily because of the impacts the reforms could have on his family through changes related to estate planning. Keeping the business in the family would result in a big tax hit.There’s a notion that other big players could soon head for the exits, Manley said.“You won’t know about it because they’re not going to buy ads or report it — they’ll just go.”Manley’s group is calling on the government to hold off on the proposed changes for now to allow for a broader review of the tax system that examines additional goals like making the entire structure less complex.Failing that, he would like to see the feds fix any unintended consequences from the current plan on the table.Finance Minister Bill Morneau first released the three-part tax reform plan in the middle of the summer.He argues that the tax system unfairly encourages wealthy Canadians to incorporate, so they can get a better tax rate than middle-income earners. The government insists the changes would level the playing field, although many disagree.The package includes restrictions on the ability of business owners to reduce their tax rate by sprinkling their income to family members in lower tax brackets, even if those family members do not contribute to the company.Morneau also proposed limits on the use of private corporations to make passive investments that are unrelated to the company. Another change would limit business owners’ ability to convert regular income of a corporation into capital gains, which are typically taxed at a lower rate.The government gave Canadians a 75-day consultation period, ending Oct. 2, to weigh in on the proposals. Morneau insists the government will listen to concerns before it tables legislation and that he expects some of the feedback will lead to changes.If the government’s proposals are introduced as is, University of Calgary tax expert Jack Mintz says there are plenty of options to get around the changes — and he warns they wouldn’t be good for Canada.The reforms are aimed at private Canadian corporations, so Mintz said owners could change their citizenship, or partner with a foreigner or a public corporation to avoid paying more. He said they could also strip some of their firm’s assets while leaving the company itself in Canada.For example, countries like the United Kingdom offer attractive tax incentives for business people looking to move to its shores from abroad, Mintz said.Since Morneau’s tax announcement, Mintz said he knows one big business owner who has taken action and another who is considering it.In these scenarios, he said Canada could not only lose tax revenue but the business leaders themselves, who create jobs and play constructive roles in their communities.“It’s a major blow to the country in a number of ways,” Mintz said.The president of a national small- and medium-sized business federation, which has been one of the most outspoken critics of the tax proposals, said many of his members have been receiving calls from business development organizations in the United States to offer them incentives to move across the border.“There’s all sorts of business immigration programs that are out there encouraging entrepreneurs to pick up and leave,” said Dan Kelly of the Canadian Federation of Independent Business.“Canada has to watch out because business owners in lots of areas can be quite mobile.”Follow @AndyBlatchford on Twitter
Speaking to reporters during a briefing this afternoon, a spokesperson for Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said Mohammed Ibn Chambas, Special Representative for West Africa, arrived in the capital city of Ouagadogou. His visit, which the Secretary-General announced yesterday, is part of a joint mission that also includes the President of the Commission of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the African Union Commissioner for Political Affairs.“The Secretary-General urges all parties to exercise calm and restraint and to use dialogue to solve the current crisis,” the spokesperson said.Mr. Chambas is expected to meet with political stakeholders, as well as with religious and traditional leaders.Media reports suggest that President Compaoré, who had led the country for 27 years, announced his resignation as thousands of protesters took to the streets in Ouagadougou over the past few days, facing off with security forces yesterday outside the presidential palace amid deadly violence that included ransacking government buildings and the State television headquarters.
Today, we launched our college football predictions for the 2017 season, and there weren’t too many surprises at the top: Alabama and Clemson are the leading favorites to make the four-team College Football Playoff (so what else is new?), followed by Oklahoma and Washington, three Big Ten teams1Wisconsin, Penn State and, yes, one-loss Ohio State. and Georgia. What’s perhaps most notable at this stage of the season is that even the undefeated front-runners still have relatively low chances of being picked by the committee at season’s end.

That means there’s a 64 percent chance that at least one of the last two champs won’t be in the playoff (including a 15 percent neither will be present). And the odds quickly fall off even further from there — Washington (5-0) rounds out the top four with just a 40 percent shot at the playoff.In other words, there’s still so much we don’t know yet about how this season will play out.And in a way, that can work in the undefeated teams’ favor. Most of them have a much higher probability of making the CFP than of winning out, so there are plenty of plausible paths that involve them weathering a loss and still ending up playing for the championship.But it also means there’s plenty of hope to go around, whether a team is undefeated or not. A dozen teams currently have double-digit CFP probabilities, and 25 have at least a 1 percent chance of making the playoff. Furthermore, almost all of the top 20 teams in our projection are pretty likely to make the playoff if they win all of their remaining games. The only clear exception here is Notre Dame (4-1), which already needs some helpful losses from the teams above them. The problem for the Irish is that — unlike most of the one-loss contenders — winning out doesn’t disrupt too many other contending teams’ playoff trajectories. If Ohio State wins the rest of its games, it’ll be dealing losses to Penn State (No. 4 in the AP top 25 poll), Michigan (No. 7) and possibly Wisconsin (No. 9) in the Big Ten championship game, whereas Notre Dame’s best remaining opponents are outside the top 10. Plus, the Irish don’t have a conference championship to pad its résumé at season’s end. (Hey, maybe it’s time to join a conference, guys?)Mostly, the uncertainty in our probabilities is a function of how early we are in the college football calendar: Not even halfway into the season, there are still enough games left that most contenders control their own destinies. Most one-loss teams can probably play their way into serious CFP contention if they run the table: Okla. StateBig 126779 Virginia TechACC3371 WisconsinBig Ten1326 TEAMCONFWINNING OUTMAKING PLAYOFF And even some two-loss teams could get in by winning out. For example, Stanford (3-2) has a 62 percent chance of making the playoff if it goes without another loss. (These kinds of numbers are contingent on who a team would beat in those universes — in the Cardinal’s case, that’s most notably Washington.)So take heart, fans, even if your team isn’t at the top of our rankings right now. A lot of schools have a lot of ways to win the national championship. And each week in this space, we’ll pick out one of those teams and explore all the things that have to happen around the country for our model to think it has a shot to make the cut.

Coguaro is the new mixer that CIFA has destined for special transportation of concrete in demanding environments, such as tunnels and mines. The company says the new mixer “is being put to the test in Peru, in an Andean mine in Chungar, which will be a real challenge, due to its 4,700 m altitude, underground temperatures reaching 38°C, a high humidity level and presence of acid water.”Small dimensions allow it to move in small spaces, but at the same time it has a carrying capacity up to 4 m3. “Looking closely at it, what strikes most is the unmistakable ‘Made in Italy’ style and the design, unusual for this type of machine, that matches aesthetics, quality, technology, functionality and ergonomics.”An electrically-operated hydraulic transmission, a hydraulic pump and two hydraulic engines mounted directly on the axles “ensure maximum traction, reliability and minimum fuel consumption.” Four driving and steering wheels and a sturdy frame ensure high agility. High safety levels are due to the drum rotation control during vehicle movement and safety systems to block the drum when carrying out maintenance. The machine functions are controlled by CSD (Control Speed Drive), driving safety is guaranteed by ROPS-FOPS closed cabin, and visibility enhanced by an infrared rear-view camera for manoeuvres in tunnels. Available on request are electronic sensors for obstacle detection and an active fire control system. The engine is a diesel Perkins STEP 3-A.

Juba League man accused in AL man murder killed in ‘gunfight’An activist of Awami Juba League was killed in what the Rapid Action Battalion aka RAB calls a gunfight with its members in Jhikargachha upazila of Jessore in the early hours of Saturday.Awami Juba League is the youth wing of ruling Bangladesh Awami League (AL). Police said the victim, Liton Hossain Babu also known as Pulsar Babu, 35, was a “top terror” in the area and was accused in several cases including murder ones.The law enforcement said Liton – son of Hasan Ali Khokan of the upazila’s Mirzapur village – was the prime accused in the case over the murder of a local AL activist, Abbas Hossain, who was killed three days ago on Wednesday, 3 January.RAB-6 (Jessore) camp commander major Md. Ziaur Rahman claimed a RAB team conducted a raid in upazila’s Refugeepara, acting on a tip-off that a group of miscreants were trading arms there around 6:00 this morning.According to the claim of the RAB officer, three to four terrorists fled the scene shortly after sensing the presence of the law enforcers, but one of them opened fire on the law enforcers.“And in self defence, RAB too opened fire on him, leading to the death of the terrorist,” he added.The RAB officer further claimed that two RAB members were also injured in the shootout.But the RAB’s version of the event was not verified independently as no account of the incident was available immediately either from any witnesses or any member of the victim’s family.Jhikargachha police station officer-in-charge Abu Saleh Md Masud Karim told Prothom Alo that they recovered the bullet-hit body of Liton from Kashipur village of the upazila this morning after they received a message in this regard from RAB.The police officer said “Pulsar Babu” was a “top terror” in the area and was accused in several cases including the Abbas Hossain murder case.An AL activist, Abbas Hossain, 43, is the son of Harez Ali Molla of Chandrapur village of the upazila.Abbas Hossain’s brother Abdus Salam is a member of Jhikargachha sadar union council and another brother Kamal Hossain is the general secretary of Jhikargachha upazila unit of Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL), the student wing of the ruling AL.According to witness Shamim Hossain, nephew of Abbas Hossain, he along with his uncle Abbas, Abdus Salam and Kamal Hossain were overseeing the work of their under-construction building on Wednesday morning. “Around 11:45am Wednesday, a group of 10 to 12 arms-wielding terrorists led by Pulsar Babu and certain Alamgir Hossain surrounded them,” he added.According to Shamim, at one stage, Abdus Salam and Kamal Hossain managed to flee the scene.“Pulsar Babu hurled bomb on Abbas Hossain and he immediately falls on the ground and then Alamgir stabbed him in his belly.”Shamim said the assailants flee the scene by charging five more bombs there. Abbas succumbed to his injuries on his way to hospital.Talking to Prothom Alo on Wednesday, Jhikargachha upazila AL joint general secretary Monirul Islam said, “Abbas was an AL activist and rival AL men have killed him. They launched bomb attack on my house to kill me too.”On the other hand, the upazila AL general secretary Musa Mahmud told Prothom Alo on Wednesday, “There is no grouping in the upazila AL unit. I don’t know whether slain Abbas was involved in AL politics, but Babu [Liton Babu] is my follower. He is involved in Juba League. If he [Liton Babu] is responsible for the killing, he must be tried.”After the killing of Abbas on Wednesday, Jhikargaccha police station OC Masud Karim told Prothom Alo, “There are two rival groups in the upazila AL. As a sequel to the political rivalry, Abbas was killed in the bomb attack of his rival group in his own house.”

VidCon was founded by YouTube’s Vlogbrothers, John and Hank Green, with the first convention taking place in 2010.“Over the last 10 years, VidCon has become the only place where the industry, brands, the world’s top digital creators and their fans come together to celebrate and change the future of online video,” VidCon GM Jim Louderback said.Details on the VidCon US 2019 sessions, activations, events, parties and featured creators have yet to be announced. According to Julia Maes, executive producer of VidCon US, the 10th edition of the flagship confab “will be a special blend of veteran and new rising talent from all the major platforms, throwback activations (the internet loves a ‘remember when’), and all the future-focused programming and conversations VidCon is known for.” VidCon, the Viacom-owned conference dedicated to online video and digital creators, has scheduled the tenth annual VidCon in the U.S. on July 10-13, 2019, at the Anaheim Convention Center.Organizers noted that the VidCon US 2019 dates won’t conflict with Cannes Lions (set to run June 17-21 next year in France), which they’re hoping will mean more advertising and marketing execs will attend the Anaheim confab. Tickets will go on sale on later this fall.This year’s VidCon US 2018 in June drew more than 74,000 fans, creators, brands and industry leaders to Southern California. Another 15,000 or so attended the VidCon Australia (Aug. 31-Sept. 2) and Amsterdam (March 22-24) conventions. Next year will mark the first VidCon London, confirmed to take place at the ExCeL London convention center from Feb. 14-17, 2019. The company says additional VidCon events around the world are on tap. Popular on Variety
Kolkata: Continuing with her penchant for bringing in silver screen personalities to politics, Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee has fielded five film stars, including two greenhorns, for the coming Lok Sabha elections. In the 2014 general elections, Banerjee had fielded the same number of cinestars and all the five had won. It was Banerjee who had in 2009 started the practice of fielding people from the glamour world in West Bengal elections, which was considered to be the forte of southern states. Also Read – Bose & Gandhi: More similar than apart, says Sugata Bose Of the 42 Lok Sabha constituencies in West Bengal, the TMC had won 19 seats in 2009 and 34 in 2014. The party also adds a dash of colour to major public meetings, where celebrities from the film and television world assemble. Fielding of Mimi Chakraborty, a popular actress in Bengali cinema and a political greenhorn, from the prestigious Jadavpur constituency for the 2019 elections has come as a surprise to many. It was from this constituency in the city that Mamata Banerjee had burst into electoral politics in 1984 as a young Congress candidate, by handing a stunning defeat to incumbent and towering Somnath Chatterjee of the CPI(M). Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: Mamata Sugata Bose, a professor of Oceanic History and Affairs at the Harvard University held the seat as a TMC MP in the outgoing 16th Lok Sabha. Reportedly, he has not been given permission by the university to contest the elections this time. Another political greenhorn and Bengali film actor Nusrat Jahan has been fielded from Basirhat in North 24 Parganas district, a seat now held by TMC’s Idris Ali. Banerjee has said Ali will contest in an Assembly by-election. Apart from these two, actors and sitting MPs Deepak Adhikari, popularly known as Dev, Satabdi Roy and Munmum Sen will also contest. While Dev and Roy would seek re-election from Ghatal and Birbhum seats respectively, Sen has been shifted from Bankura to Asansol, which was won by singer-turned-politician Babul Supriyo of the BJP. The TMC has dropped sitting MPs Tapas Pal and Sandhya Roy, well-known film stars of yesteryears. Pal had been arrested by the CBI in December 2016 in connection with the Rose Valley chitfund scam and is at present out on bail. Pal and Satabdi Roy are two-time MPs of the TMC, both having earlier won in the 2009 elections. The TMC supremo had also made Bollywood star Mithun Chakraborty a Rajya Sabha MP. But he had resigned in December 2016 citing ill health. The trend of cine stars joining electoral politics has been a regular affair in the southern states, with former Tamil Nadu chief minister M G Ramachandran as the pioneer and Rajnikanth and Kamal Haasan being the latest entrants. Andhra Pradesh is another state where film stars enjoy cult status and have made serious forays into politics, with N T Rama Rao having become chief minister of the state. In other parts of the country, film stars like Raj Babbar, Hema Malini, Vinod Khanna have been in politics and even mega star Amitabh Bachchan had a short tryst with it. Film stars have, however, generally stayed away from electoral politics in West Bengal, where it has traditionally been viewed as a forte of those who grow from the ranks, barring one or two exceptions. The so-called glass ceiling was broken in 2009 when Satabdi Roy and Tapas Pal, both of whom were doing films regularly then, were fielded by the TMC chief and won. The BJP has also brought in film personalities and those associated with it in West Bengal politics. Babul Supriyo, a playback singer who also dabbled in film acting, was one of the two BJP candidates who won in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections from West Bengal. He was also made a minister of state.

U.S. President Barack Obama speaks with Father Juan Rumin Dominguez as he visits the Shrine of Our Lady of Charity in Miami to pay his respects to the Cuban-American diaspora who worship at the church on May 28, 2015. Nicholas Kamm/AFPSticking points remainObama has already made it easier for 12 categories of U.S. citizens to visit the communist island, no longer requiring them to apply for a license before traveling.But regular tourism remains off-limits. Trips are limited to specific visits including education, sports, culture or journalism.Those allowed to visit Cuba can bring back home $100 worth of cigars or rum, and pay for purchases on the islands with credit cards.U.S. companies are now allowed to invest in Cuba’s tiny but growing private sector, which emerged under modest economic reforms launched by Castro.In March, the two countries re-established a direct telephone link, and the U.S. Treasury Department removed sanctions on some 60 individuals, shipping companies and trading firms.So far teams from the two countries have met four times seeking to work out the terms for reopening their embassies.Officials say the talks have made progress, but nothing concrete was announced at the last round, held in Washington a week ago, and sticking points remain.The communist authorities in Havana have been particularly angered by U.S. democracy programs and have so far not met demands that U.S. diplomats be allowed to meet freely with dissidents.The island is still subject to a U.S. trade embargo put in place in 1962, which Obama has called on Congress to lift.Friday’s decision means only Iran, Sudan and Syria remain on the State Department’s blacklist of state sponsors of terrorism.The diplomatic path has been advancing since December, and Castro and Obama also held a historic meeting in Panama in April on the sidelines of a regional summit.Castro traveled earlier this month to the Vatican to meet Pope Francis, who was instrumental in helping Washington and Havana break the ice.In the early days of the communist regime in the 1960s, Raúl’s brother Fidel Castro expelled some 100 religious figures and nationalized numerous Church properties after it opposed the new regime.For more on what this means, see: After 23 years, the US is dropping its claim that Cuba sponsors terrorism.

(AP Photo/Matt York) Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires 2 Comments Share In 2017, Bradford found himself among Alex Smith, Carson Palmer and Joe Flacco as tier five starters or “guys, veterans and place holders.”Fast forward to 2018, and he’s found himself in tier six — the “good luck” category — with Miami Dolphins signal caller Ryan Tannehill.As for Bradford, well, I haven’t been fooled in a long, long time, but amazingly here is always another GM ready to give him another $20M to invariably rehab from another season-ending surgery. Good for him. But rookie Josh Rosen will end up playing more football for the Cardinals than he will next year.Since joining the league in 2010 as a member of the St. Louis Rams, Bradford has missed a total of 48 games over eight seasons. His only full two seasons of work came in his first years with the Rams. Out of a possible 128 starts, the signal caller has made 80.Related LinksThe timeline of potential Cardinals QB Sam Bradford’s career, injuriesBut Bradford has shown recently he can get the job done when healthy.After being traded from the Philadelphia Eagles to the Minnesota Vikings in 2016, Bradford had a career year.

Go back to the e-newsletterJumeirah Vittaveli brings a new first to the Maldives this festive season with the opening of the destination’s first ice rink. The rink allows guests to be carried away into a small winter wonderland of their own while being enveloped by the warmth of the tropics.In an experience unlike any other, guests can take a dip in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, then step off the white sandy beaches and into a pair of skates to glide over the resort’s glistening ice skating rink. Launching shortly before Christmas, the ice rink adds a little more magic to this already enchanting season.GM Amit Majumder comments: “The ice rink is a perfect expression of our goal to always wow guests. We have many guests who keep coming back to us and I often hear that one of the reasons for their returns is that they love to be surprised by our updates and developments each time they come. Apart from the ice rink, we have some exciting changes in our rooms and dining outlets upcoming, which we will announce in the near future.”In its quest to constantly surprise guests, the resort has found a way to transport winter cheer into a tropical climate while still adhering to its core beliefs as a property aiming to improve its sustainability wherever possible. The ice rink has been built in partnership with Glice®, a company that manufactures artificial ice plates. Glice® offers ice skating indoor and outdoor anytime and in any climate conditions. Contrary to a conventional ice skating rink, a complex molecular technology makes Glice® synthetic ice rinks function entirely without water and at a zero-energy level.Jumeirah Vittaveli’s festive season will be celebrated with a carnival-around-the-globe theme this year. Guests will enjoy lavish gala dinners at Samsara Beach, live bands and dance troupes, Santa Claus will visit on Christmas Day, and 31 December will see a vibrant New Year’s party including DJ, fire dance, and fireworks.Go back to the e-newsletter

actor said Freeman became an advocate for medicinal use of the drug after shattering his left shoulder arm and elbow in a car accident in 2008 He still hasn’t regained full use of his left hand and continues to experience pain which inspires his support for the medicinal use of the drug “Marijuana has many useful uses” he told The Daily Beast “I have fibromyalgia pain in this arm and the only

Species ListLily RothmanDec 28 2015When the Endangered Species Act was approved on this day Dec 28 in 1973 it allowed the US government to take several steps to protect the nation’s native plants and animals One of the most famous of those measures was creating the list of endangered and threatened speciesBut the list actually traces its roots to the beginning of the 20th century when the disappearance of the Passenger Pigeon led the government to try—in vain—to keep the birds alive by further regulating the hunting of game birds as the US Fish and Wildlife Service notes Decades later in 1966 Congress passed the Endangered Species Protection Act choosing a group of 14 mammal species for the first-ever official US endangered species list (The list also included dozens of birds a couple of reptiles and amphibians and 22 fish species)Looking back through that original list it’s clear that the past half-century has been a mixed bag for the species on it Many remain endangered
