New Support for Cultural Innovation and Screen Writing Development

first_imgGovernment announced two new funding programs today, Jan. 12, to help strengthen communities and the economy and generate more local content in the Nova Scotia film industry. A $1.5 million Culture Innovation Fund is seeking initiatives and projects that use culture in new and innovative ways to address social, physical, human, and economic issues and opportunities. The fund will also help strengthen the role of museums and libraries across the province. The $262,000 Screen Writers Development Fund is a new model to increase Nova Scotia content in the film industry by supporting local writers and producers. “We are building stronger and more inclusive communities by increasing cultural engagement and cultural opportunities whether it is through music, film, the arts, locally led initiatives or at our museums,” said Communities, Culture, and Heritage Minister Leo Glavine. “Through innovation, we will focus on the strength and positive impacts of our culture to create healthy, diverse and vibrant communities.” The fund is available to not-for-profit organizations, social enterprises, First Nations communities, museums and libraries. Registered Nova Scotia businesses and municipalities can submit proposals in collaboration or partnership with the above organizations. It will help to support programs like Discovery Centre International in Halifax, a collaboration of various partners who through innovative thinking and technology created a program and exhibit that illustrates how the ocean ecosystem impacts our environment, climate, food, culture and heritage. Information about the Culture Innovation Fund and how to apply is available at novascotia.ca/cultureinnovation. The Screen Writers Development Fund, developed through consultation with Screen Nova Scotia, will help increase Nova Scotia content in the film industry by supporting local writers and producers. “We support government’s efforts to encourage Nova Scotia producers and screenwriters,” said Mike Volpe, chair of Screen Nova Scotia. “We know that this province is home to wonderful writers and highly capable producers and feel that this program will foster a wealth of new ideas and stories that will further help to create new film production work, here at home.” The fund will also encourage diversity and gender parity within the industry and support expansion of global markets and audiences. Approved applicants will receive up to 50 per cent of the cost of their project. Details on the Screen Writers Development Fund are available at novascotia.ca/screenwritersdevelopmentfund. Nova Scotia’s Culture Action Plan was created to establish priorities and clear actions to support creativity and innovation, inclusive and welcoming communities and sustainable cultural growth and productivity for the communities in the province.last_img read more

UN conference draws attention to illicit trade in arms but closes without

“This conference was a success in that it brought great international attention to the issue,” Chairman Prasad Kariyawasam of Sri Lanka said, noting the broad media coverage of the conference, which opened on June 26 to review the implementation of the 2001 Programme of Action to Prevent, Combat and Eradicate the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons, which remains the pivotal framework for international, regional and national activity to curtail illegal gun trafficking.Though an agreed final declaration was not concluded, that Programme of Action firmly remained “an enabling framework that empowered states, international and regional organizations and other relevant organizations and civil society” to work to end the illicit trade in small arms. “Its validity and effectiveness remained undiminished,” he said.As Secretary-General Kofi Annan reminded the Conference in his opening address, every year an estimated $1 billion worth of these weapons are traded illicitly worldwide, exacerbating conflicts that kill tens of thousands, sparking refugee flows, undermining the rule of law and spawning a “culture of violence and impunity.”In the past five years since the Programme of Action was adopted, nearly 140 countries have reported on illegal gun trafficking, while a third of all States have made efforts to collect weapons from those not legally entitled to hold them, Mr. Annan said. Other progress included increased cooperation among and within regions to stem the flow of illicit weapons across national borders.More than 2,000 representatives from governments, international and regional organizations and civil society took part in the two-week event. read more

Vancouver company backs out of bid to restart NewPage mill in Cape

HALIFAX – The Vancouver company that planned to buy an idle paper mill in Cape Breton stunned the province Friday by suddenly backing out of its bid, saying an unfavourable tax ruling from Ottawa effectively killed the deal.Pacific West Commercial Corp. issued a statement saying the recent decision from the Canada Revenue Agency made it impossible to ensure economic viability of the former NewPage mill at Point Tupper, which was shut down a year ago, throwing 600 people out of work.The company said that despite the provincial government’s efforts to come up with a compromise to ease the tax burden, both parties decided the tax implications could not be overcome.“It is extremely disappointing for everyone involved in the year-long effort to restart the mill to realize that we have been unable to achieve our collective goal,” company president Ronald Stern said in the statement.The province’s NDP government had placed a premium on keeping the mill open. With a $25-billion federal shipbuilding contract secured for the largely urban Halifax region, Premier Darrell Dexter was keen to ensure some degree of economic success in rural Nova Scotia.In recent weeks, critics suggested the province had gone too far with Pacific West, repeatedly pointing out that the company was prepared to pay $33 million for the mill while the province had set aside almost four times that amount.On Friday, the premier said the province’s efforts to restructure a $124-million aid package exposed the province to undue financial risk.The government first announced the fund last month. At the time, it included $66.5 million in loans, $26.5 million of which would be forgiven if certain criteria including wage targets were met.But the government said last Friday it would sweeten the fund after the Canada Revenue Agency rejected the tax break sought by Pacific West.The request from the company involved a complicated business arrangement with Nova Scotia Power Inc., the province’s privately owned utility. The deal would have given the utility a 30 per cent stake in the company.At the time, the government said increases in tax revenue resulting from the tax agency’s ruling would allow the province to grant the company greater financial forgiveness on some of the loans.Earlier this week, Transportation Minister Maurice Smith suggested all of Nova Scotia would feel the economic fallout if the mill remained closed because it produced 2.5 per cent of the province’s GDP.Smith said the mill was “too big to fail.”Aside from the 600 jobs at the mill itself, the operation also supported about 400 forestry contractors. Pacific West had pledged to rehire about 300 workers and operate one of the mill’s two paper machines. But the company had always said the deal hinged on the tax ruling and cheaper electricity rates.Dexter said he was disappointed on behalf of the people and businesses in southern Cape Breton. He said the company’s move will be devastating for the mill’s workers and their families.“The province fought as hard as it could for those jobs because this government knows good jobs are the lifeblood of rural communities,” Dexter said, adding that he didn’t regret going out on a limb for Cape Breton.“There are some who would have been happy for us to turn our backs on those workers and their families the day it was announced that the mill would be idled. Even though we could not reach a deal in the end, I can proudly say that we did not abandon those people and we will not do so now either.”Dexter said he planned to meet with municipal officials to discuss “transitional support” for former workers and those in the forestry sector.

Pakistan UN strongly condemns terrorist attack that leaves scores dead and wounded

In a press statement, the Security Council denounced the attack as “heinous and cowardly” and urged all States, in accordance with their obligations under international law and relevant Council resolutions, to cooperate actively with the Pakistan Government and other relevant authorities to bring to justice the perpetrators and financiers of this and other such terrorist acts.The Council said the attack, a suicide bombing, according to media in the region, took place in Mastung, a town in Pakistan’s south-western Balochistan province, and resulted in more than 128 people killed and 200 people injured.The members of the Council expressed their deepest sympathy and condolences to the families of the victims and to the Government of Pakistan and they wished a speedy and full recovery to those who were injured.In a separate statement condemning recent terrorist attacks in Pakistan targeting political rallies and candidates, Secretary-General António Guterres also extended his heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims and to the country’s Government and people.“The United Nations stands in solidarity with and supports the efforts of the Government of Pakistan in the fight against terrorism,” said the statement, issued by a UN spokesperson.Friday’s attack was the latest in a series of bombings targeting campaign events in Pakistan over the last week. The country is set to hold nationwide polls on 25 July. read more

Voting Deer and Peach Days All Part of Ferron City Council Meeting

Photo courtesy of the Division of Wildlife Resources.By Julie JohansenDiscussion on contracting with Emery County for municipal elections kicked off the Ferron City Council meeting on Thursday, Feb. 14. Jeff Guymon with Emery County explained to the council, as he has with other cities, that it was the council’s decision to contract with the county or host its own elections. If contracting with the county, the expense to the city would be to print the ballots and mail them out. The voters would have to mail them back or drop them off to a ballot box. The county will gather the ballots, verify the signatures and count them with their machine.John Healy expressed concern with voter fraud and comparing signatures. Guymon understood his concern and said that the county would have to contact the voter to verify the signature if there were questions. The council members decided they needed more time to consider the issue and would make a decision at the next meeting.Wade Paskett, a representative of the Division of Wildlife Resources, reported that they have had several complaints again about deer in people’s yards and gardens, so he was wondering if the city would like to have an archery doe hunt. There is already an archery buck hunt and he explained that a split decision had been reached when the city had been approached at an earlier time. Deprivation permits had been issued then. The hunts would happen in August and September and would hope to remove deer that had become permanent residents, not migration herds. Normal hunting regulations would be enforced and permits would not be limited to city residents. When questioned about other cities doing this, Paskett responded that Green River, Monticello and the Price River Corridor have participated in these hunts. The council members felt that they needed more time to investigate and would make a decision during the next meeting.The council voted to donate $250 to the community theatre and also $500 from their special needs fund to the Utah Council of the Blind Community Projects. The council is hoping to do some sculpturing and will need welders. Further consideration and approval from the Council of the Blind is needed.Arbor Day projects were also discussed. Trees at the cemetery have been found to not be infected and are in good shape. It was suggested that burial plots not be sold directly adjacent to the older trees and that watering be kept at a minimum so that they would not blow over if the soil becomes too damp. City cleanup and also cleanup around the reservoir were mentioned as projects connected to Arbor Day, which is April 27.Greg Howes proposed having chainsaw competition at Peach Days. He would like both professional and amateur classes. He also suggested an added attraction of mud bogs. Howes will do more research with regards to liability and insurance coverage. read more

Brock mourning the death of Peter Partridge Sr

One of the longest-standing supporters of Brock University has passed away.Peter Partridge Sr., a former Brock Board of Trustees member and the longtime Chair of the Rodman Hall Advisory Committee, died suddenly Thursday night.Partridge’s ties to Brock go back to the late 1960s when he was asked by then-President James Gibson to run a new University choir. A talented musician who studied at the Royal Academy of Music in London, Partridge’s support for the arts at Brock and across Niagara was unwavering. He was a generous contributor to the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts. The Partridge Family Music Suite at the downtown arts school is named in his honour. At the nearby FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre, one of the main halls — frequently used for music classes by Brock University students — also bears his name.“Peter provided outstanding leadership and support to Brock and the Niagara community,” said Pamela Shanks, Executive Director, Development and Alumni Relations. “Peter’s passion for music and art, and his generous philanthropy, have created a lasting legacy that will not be forgotten.”Partridge served on many boards and committees over the years at Brock, including serving on the Board of Trustees from 2004 to 2010. When Rodman Hall was taken over by Brock University in 2003, Partridge was named Chair of the Advisory Committee, a role he was still serving in at the time of his death.“Peter was asked by President David Atkinson at the time to take on that role and he was honoured to do it,” said Rodman Hall Director Tom Arkell. “During his 15 years as chair, Peter offered leadership, guidance, encouragement and support. He will be missed dearly by all of us who had the chance to work with him.”Partridge was also an ardent supporter of Brock athletics, and was a devout fan of the Badgers men’s basketball team. Partridge and his son, Peter Jr., were regular faces at Brock home games, and the pair travelled to Halifax earlier this year to watch the team compete in the U SPORTS National Championships. The men’s basketball team dressing room was renamed the Partridge Family Locker Room after a contribution in 2016 allowed it to be completely renovated.“Every university program should be able to experience the type of support, passion, commitment and dedication someone like Peter Sr. and his family provided,” said former Badgers men’s basketball coach Charles Kissi, who is on a one-year leave to coach with the Raptors 905 development team. “I learned a lot from him in terms of my coaching and the way he was always smiling and vibrant and how he engaged with others.“It’s a tremendous loss to his family and to the community and I would say to the world.” read more

Ohio State football more than all right with JT Barrett at quarterback

OSU redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett scans the field during practice at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center Aug. 9.Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorWhen a team loses its senior Heisman-candidate quarterback, it can typically expect to see a big drop off in its offensive strength.If you ask Ohio State redshirt-junior tight end Nick Vannett, though, he’ll tell you that won’t necessarily be the case as redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett takes the place of the injured Braxton Miller.“I think with the way they (Barrett and redshirt-sophomore quarterback Cardale Jones) have been playing right now, I don’t think we’ll skip a beat,” Vannett said Monday after practice. “I think we’ll be just fine.”While Barrett has yet to take a snap outside of practice for the Scarlet and Gray, he and Jones have been practicing with the first-team offense since the spring. Miller initially injured his shoulder against Clemson in the Orange Bowl to end last season, paving the way for Barrett and Jones to get the only significant reps at quarterback in spring practice.Miller was limited again this fall because his shoulder was sore after an offseason surgery. And then he tore his throwing shoulder labrum in practice Aug. 18.Vannett said practice time will help the offense continue on the same beat going forward, even though the team initially expected Miller to make a full recovery from the first injury.“We did a really (good) job with our quarterbacks, 0having J.T. and Cardale getting reps in the spring as well with (Miller) out,” he said. “It’s not like it’s a last minute thing where we’re just jumping in and kind of rushing stuff.”Senior wide receiver Evan Spencer said there will be changes to the offense, but agreed that Barrett, as well as Jones if he plays any reps, will be ready to go because of the amount of practice time they’ve had since the season ended.“They’ve been throwing the ball so much all throughout camp, and really all throughout the offseason, that it’s not that much of a transition for us just because that’s what we’ve been going through,” Spencer said.While many wrote off OSU as a contender in the National Championship race after Miller went down, Spencer said he’s seen enough in practice to have plenty of confidence heading into the season.“Personally, I think what we’ve been seeing out at practice — and a lot of the other seniors can back me up — is … we’ll be way more than all right this year,” he said. “That’s for sure.”OSU coach Urban Meyer said he believes Barrett and Jones have been up to the challenge since Miller was injured, and the changes at the position will be helped along by a plethora of talented receivers.“J.T. and Cardale responded very well (after Miller’s injury),” Meyer said at a Monday press conference. “The biggest issue I see, or the positive we have right now, is we have a good one and two group of receivers that are just rotating out.”Meyer said there will be six different receivers rotating through the lineup, with the plan being to give Barrett the freshest and most rested targets possible throughout OSU’s season opener.Then-redshirt-freshman quarterback Cardale Jones (12) avoids a defender during a game against Florida A&M Sept. 21 at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 76-0.Lantern file photoEven though Meyer announced Barrett as the No. 2 quarterback before Miller went down with his injury, he said there isn’t a big gap between his and Jones’ talent. The third-year OSU coach confirmed, though, that Barrett is the starter heading into the season.Meyer also said it would be possible for Jones to come in for Barrett if the latter doesn’t perform up to expectations in the first weeks of the season.Regardless of his performance on the field, Spencer said the team has confidence in Barrett as a leader, which is a role he has taken on since Miller’s injury.“You could kind of tell from the beginning of camp that (Barrett) was trying to work on his maturity and his leadership as a young player,” Spencer said. “But after Braxton went down in practice, I think he kind of realized pretty quickly, ‘All right, well, time to take a leadership role.’”Spencer said as soon as the team realized Miller would be out, Barrett stepped up to the challenge of filling those shoes.“In the huddle from then on, when (Barrett) was in practice and doing stuff like that he was just making sure that he was keeping people going,” Spencer said. “If we were having a rough day, he was making sure that we’d stay up, that we’d stay motivated.”Meyer said one of the first things he noticed about Barrett was his competitive spirit. He said Barrett isn’t any louder as a leader than Miller, but added the’s “very confident.”Spencer said Miller and Barrett have different leadership qualities, but said both are good at what they do. He added Barrett is a strong motivator and he’s excited to see what happens going forward.OSU’s first game of the season is scheduled for Saturday against Navy at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. Kickoff is set for noon. read more

U.S. hiring jumps after hurricanes as employers add 261K jobs

first_imgWASHINGTON — U.S. employers added a solid 261,000 jobs in October in a bounce-back from the hurricanes that slammed the Southeast in September.The unemployment rate declined to 4.1 percent, the lowest in nearly 17 years, from 4.2 percent in September, the Labor Department said Friday. But the drop in the rate occurred mostly because many people stopped looking for work and so were no longer counted as unemployed.October’s burst of hiring largely reflects a rebound from the hurricanes that temporarily depressed job gains in September. But it also shows that for all their fury, the storms didn’t knock the economy or the job market off course. Over the past three months, job growth has averaged 162,000, similar to the pace of hiring before the hurricanes.“Hiring got a boost from the post-hurricane rebound, but the underlying trend remained steady,” said Jed Kolko, chief economist at Indeed, a job-search website.In part because of the durability of the job market, the Federal Reserve is likely on track to raise its short-term interest rate in December. That could lead to slightly higher mortgage rates and other borrowing costs over time.At the same time, Republicans in Congress proposed tax cuts Thursday that they say would fuel faster economic growth and job gains. That might be hard to achieve with unemployment already so low. Many employers already complain that they can’t find the workers they need.last_img read more

Thuram reveals when he met Messi and advises Dembele

first_imgFrench legend Lillian Thuram, revealed details of when he first heard about Lionel Messi and sent Ousmane Dembele a bit of useful advice.French defender Lillian Thuram has been retired from football for some time now, he does altruistic work now and always finds time to reminisce about his past life as a player when he shared a dressing room with the likes of Lionel Messi between 2006 and 2008.During the time when Leo first played against a professional club even before his official debut, Thuram was part of that Juventus squad that the Argentine faced in a friendly match when both squads played the Gamper Trophy.The Frenchman missed the game at that time, but he remembers Lionel Messi’s name even from that time.“The first time I heard about Messi I was playing for Juventus,” Thuram told Marca.“The squad went to play the Gamper Trophy. I didn’t make it, I stayed in Turin. I believe I was coming back from the national team.”“When the squad returned, everybody kept talking about this 17-year old kid whose name was Messi and was impossible to stop.”“It was years later when I arrived in Barcelona, that I was able to assess that he would make it big. He was simply the best,” he added.FC Barcelona, Valencia CFMatch Preview: Barcelona vs Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Is derby time in La Liga, as Barcelona welcomes Valencia to the Camp Nou Stadium tonight at 21:00 (CET).When asked about his compatriot Dembele’s discipline situation, Thuram had some words of wisdom to share with the young player.“He is a great player, that’s the most important thing. I would advise him to learn from the veterans,” he continued.“I was young as well and you have to learn from your elder when you arrive at any club. We can’t make a big fuzz out of the whole subject.”“If I only talked about all the football players who were undisciplined that I came across in my career, I would talk for a whole month,” he concluded.Thuram on Dembélé: “The important thing is he’s a top player. I’d tell him when you move clubs to learn from the veterans. There’s no need to turn his term into drama. If I could talk about the great players I’ve seen not doing the right things, I’d be talking for over a month.” pic.twitter.com/6U6d4EdsQm— Barça Centre (@barcacentre) December 26, 2018last_img read more

The Queen quashes Meghan Markles Shocking agenda Royals not pleased

first_imgMeghan MarkleGetty ImagesMeghan Markle seems set on asserting her independence in the Royal Family and she seems to have Prince Hary agreeing with her.Reportedly Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have split their household from Kate Middleton and Prince William – and the Queen’s decision to keep the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s office at Buckingham Palace prevents Meghan from overshadowing other senior royals, royal expert Angela Mollard claims.Apparently, with Kate Middleton and Prince William remaining at Kensington Palace, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex now have their offices under the direction of the Queen at Buckingham Palace. It comes after reports suggested the couple originally had plans to break away with their own court at Windsor, which the Queen has refused.Ms. Mollard explained: “The Queen is keeping a strong arm on how they operate, they’re not allowed to go rogue.”Ms. Mollard continued: “I do actually, I think it’s really smart.””Someone of Meghan’s status and previous star performance has the ability to position herself very much as an Angelina (Jolie) or an Amal (Clooney).”Now, nothing matters more with the Royal Family than the brand being cohesive, there can’t be an offshoot.” She explained: “We saw it with Diana.”Meghan Markle being compared to Princess Diana may have serious implications for the Duchess of Sussex, the Royal Family might not take kindly to an outsider coming and trying to steal the spotlight from Prince Harry.  Meghan MarkleGetty ImagesMs. Mollard added to the Princess Diana comparison by saying: “She owned the stage, so Charles’ very progressive work on sustainability and environmentalism just got nothing.”There was no coverage, no one was interested.””As it happens, those things have become incredibly relevant now, he was a very forward-thinking man.”It must have been so frustrating to him to be overshadowed.”She concluded: “I think it serves us all well to have a cohesive Royal Family.”The Queen needs it to be cohesive.”Meghan Markle may have to take things slow and be more diplomatic if she hopes to achieve any success as a Royal, because getting on the wrong side of the Queen may not be a good idea for her.last_img read more

Tech Employees Flee From Silicon Valley Housing Market

first_img Black Knight Housing Affordability real estate San Francisco housing Zillow 2018-03-06 Rachel Williams Tech Employees Flee From Silicon Valley Housing Market March 6, 2018 682 Views in Daily Dose, Data, Newscenter_img According to an article by the Observer’s Sissi Cao, prime-age workers (those in their mid-30s) are retreating from Silicon Valley due to the lack of affordable housing.“A typical software engineer at the highest-paying tech companies in the area now needs to spare a third of his or her income to afford a home near work, which runs around $1.2 million,” Cao reported.In an attempt to alleviate this problem, Trulia found that the Golden Gate City built more new homes than any other city in 2017. Last year the city approved 94.6 percent more homes than its average between 1980-2016. The total number of permits in 2017 was 6,270.Although San Francisco’s affordability crisis has been waging for more than a decade, it seems to be reaching epic proportions. A recent Black Knight report found that San Francisco hit a new peak in home appreciation, as prices rose by more than 11 percent year-over-year in December 2017.One way tech companies are reacting to the affordability problem is by building branches outside of San Francisco to retain employees, as conveyed by Lux Capital co-founder Josh Wolfe, who spoke to Cao. However, for residents who don’t want to move out of the city, unorthodox living arrangements may be the solution. New York Times writer Nellie Bowles recently delved into this problem, finding that some professionals are moving back into dorms when priced out of the single-family housing market.“Everybody told me housing in San Francisco was really expensive, but I was like, ‘I live in New York, how much more expensive can it be? … I was a bit cocky,” Katherine McKim, 37, told Bowles.
