Landry. Ils sont toujours à l’écoute de leurs communautés et des Néo-Écossais en ce qui a trait aux enjeux qui touchent les droits de la personne. » « Les commissaires contribuent à l’orientation stratégique de la Commission et sont responsables de prendre des décisions au sujet des enjeux liés aux droits de la personne. » Mme Boutilier est psychologue clinicienne et a travaillé avec plusieurs centres de santé en Nouvelle-Écosse.

UNbacked partnership promises education for millions more African children

15 September 2009A United Nations-backed campaign to bring education to millions of children in Africa is expanding to reach millions more after exceeding its initial target by raising more than $50 million. The Schools for Africa partnership, set up in 2004 by the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the Nelson Mandela Foundation (NMF) and the Hamburg Society to raise money to help over 4 million children in Angola, Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda, South Africa and Zimbabwe, signed a memorandum of understanding on the expansion in New York today.“Education is a human right. Children have the right to a quality basic education which is central to human development and a main component for achieving all the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs),” UNICEF Director of Programmes Nicholas Alipui said, referring to the targets set by the UN Millennium Summit in 2000 to slash a host of social ills, including poverty, hunger and lack of access to health care and education, all by 2015.“By addressing education challenges with particular attention to issues of access, quality and equity, African countries will be in a better position to benefit from economic growth, industrial development and investment opportunities.” The partnership aims to provide a more safe, protective and accessible learning environment for children and it reached its goal of raising $50 million, one year in advance. The programme has amassed $71 million to date.Fundraising for phase II of the scheme will be launched between 2010 and 2013, and will also support Ethiopia, Madagascar, Mali, Niger and Burkina Faso. By then the partnership will cover 11 countries – encompassing not just Eastern and Southern Africa, but also the West and Central African regions.The Schools for Africa partnership attributes its fundraising success to the efforts of 26 national committees around the world.In 2006, some 101 million children, more than half of them girls, were not attending primary school, according to UNICEF’s latest State of the World’s Children report. Almost half of them live in sub-Saharan Africa. At the current rate, millions of children especially girls, children with disabilities, orphaned and other vulnerable children will remain excluded and be denied their fundamental right to education in 2015.The funds will be used to provide textbooks, chairs, desks and tables, safe drinking water, health checks, school meals, immunization, as well as to rehabilitate or build new classrooms and separate sanitation facilities for girls and boys.Provision will also be made for special care and support to orphans and other vulnerable children and strengthen the linkages between schools and communities through student governance bodies and parent-teacher associations. Despite efforts to promote access to quality education, many African countries are still grappling with such issues as rural-urban disparities, the combined effects of poverty, climate change, the impact of HIV and AIDS, high dropout rates, deep-seated socio-cultural inequalities, the impact of civil conflicts, and sheer lack of basic infrastructure, including lack of water and poor sanitation. read more

Football James Laurinaitis joining Big Ten Network

Former Ohio State linebacker (2005-2008) will be an analyst on the Big Ten Network in 2017. Credit: Courtesy of TNSCHICAGO — Former Ohio State linebacker great James Laurinaitis is taking a new role in football as an analyst for Big Ten Network in 2017.BTN President Mark Silverman announced that Laurinaitis, former Michigan wide receiver Braylon Edwards and former Northwestern defensive lineman Corey Wootten are joining the network for the upcoming football season.Laurinaitis left Ohio State following the 2008 season as one of the most decorated players in program history as a three-time All-American, three-time first-team All-Big Ten player, two-time Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year and 2007 Butkus Award winner.Laurinaitis announced his retirement from the NFL in April after totaling 869 tackles, 16.5 sacks and picked off 10 passes in eight pro seasons. He finished his career as the Los Angeles Rams all-time leading tackler. Laurinaitis was selected by the Rams with the 35th overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft.“James came in and the intelligence, how thoughtful, well-spoken for someone who just retired months ago really blew us all away,” Silverman said. “It’s a great add for us … we think people who watch James are going to be really impressed with what he has to offer.”Silverman also announced that the network is collaborating with SportsTime Ohio for a weekly Ohio State football show. read more

Seven Couples Break Kissing Record

first_imgAfter 36 hours, seven of the 14 couples competing in a “Kissathon” at a resort in Pattaya, Thailand were still standing, shattering the former record of 32 hours, seven minutes and 14 seconds, set by a German couple, back in 2009.The event kicked off yesterday at 6 AM, local time at a shopping mall, with slews of tourists present, snapping pictures. The event’s organizers really didn’t expect to make it this far. Somporn Naksuetrong, the manager of Pattaya’s Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks museum, which organized the event, called the whole thing “amazing,” adding, “We didn’t think we would find anybody that could break the record.”The money helps, no doubt. The winner of the competition will get a diamond ring worth $1,600, and the equivalent of $100,000 in cash.last_img read more

Vers plus de sport dans les collèges et les lycées

first_imgVers plus de sport dans les collèges et les lycées ?France – Bonne nouvelle pour les lycéens et collégiens. Ils auront peut-être bientôt l’occasion de se défouler dans le cadre scolaire, et ce sans sanction. En effet, pour prévenir la violence à l’école ainsi que l’absentéisme, le ministre de l’Education nationale Luc Chatel propose de renforcer la pratique du sport dans les collèges et les lycées. Une expérimentation sera lancée dans 100 établissements scolaires à la rentrée prochaine. Ce programme proposera aux élèves de pratiquer du sport chaque après-midi. Les cours seraient alors seulement dispensés le matin, d’où une réorganisation totale des emplois du temps. Sur France Info, Luc Chatel a proposé une journée type : cours de 8h30 à 13h, pause déjeuner incluse, et activités physiques jusqu’à 16h30.Cette expérience sera mise en place dans les collèges et lycées possédant déjà le matériel nécessaire. Une à trois classes en bénéficieront dans chaque établissement volontaire. Ces cours d’éducation sportive seront donnés par les professeurs agréés, lesquels doivent consacrer au moins “trois heures par semaine aux associations sportives”.Actuellement, un élève sur quatre adhère à une association sportive, et Luc Chatel souhaite multiplier ce chiffre par deux.

Inadvertent voicemail recording ruled admissible in court

first_imgA cellphone voicemail that inadvertently captured John Garrett Smith threatening to kill his wife is not protected under the state’s privacy act, the Washington Supreme Court ruled Tuesday. The decision reverses a state appeals court’s ruling that overturned Smith’s conviction for attempted murder.The state’s highest court determined that the recording — which was relied upon to find Smith guilty during a December 2014 bench trial in Clark County Superior Court — does not contain a conversation within the meaning of the privacy act. And even if the recording was considered a private conversation, there’s an exception in the privacy act.Smith, 49, of Vancouver has been serving a 12-year sentence for convictions of attempted second-degree murder and second-degree assault. Each conviction carries sentencing enhancements.The energy entrepreneur, who goes by his middle name of Garrett, attacked his wife, Sheryl Smith, during a drunken argument June 2, 2013, inside their home overlooking the Columbia River. The case initially appeared to be a severe domestic assault in which Garrett Smith repeatedly punched his wife in the face and strangled her.However, Sheryl Smith’s daughter later discovered a voicemail accidentally left on Garrett Smith’s cellphone during the attack and shared it with police. In the recording, he told his wife, “I will kill you.” That prompted the prosecution to pursue an attempted murder charge.Smith argues that although he said it, he never intended to kill his wife.In October 2016, the Washington Court of Appeals ruled that using the recording violates the state’s privacy act, because it contained a private conversation that was recorded without the couple’s consent — even if it was captured inadvertently. In Washington, all parties must consent before a conversation can be recorded.last_img read more

National Geographic Restructures Sales Ops

first_img“This restructuring organizes our sales approach by client, not by our products,” Malley said. “Each brand manager will be able to go out with a brand-first approach and, essentially, spend more time working with their client to determine how to help them achieve their goals.”The company will maintain its dedicated online sales staff, Giannetti said.Serving Clients ‘Under the Yellow Border’The National Geographic Society believes the formation of the Global Media Integrated Sales and Sponsorship group has enabled the non-profit to better “harness its assets” and serve its clients by leveraging its overall brand. “How do we go to market to an advertiser whose business is evolving,” said Giannetti.  “By going with the National Geographic brand first, we’re offering our clients the best solutions, all under the yellow border. Now, we’re empowering our salespeople to do the same thing.”Since January, the company said it has finalized integrated deals with clients including Shell, Lipton, Sun Chips and the country of India.“When economic market changes, you have to have your arms open to accept those dollars,” Giannetti said. “This restructuring will enable us to do that.” Four months after forming a management team tasked with developing integrated advertising sponsorship programs company-wide, the National Geographic Society has restructured its sales operations across its four magazines, consolidating them under one brand umbrella.National Geographic associate publisher Bob Amberg and National Geographic Traveler associate publisher Kimberly Connaghan have been named brand directors, the company said. Amberg will oversee sales for the National Geographic and Kids brands while Connaghan will head sales for the Adventure and Traveler brands. Claudia Malley, who in January took on the added responsibility of developing integrated programs for companies outside the travel category, will keep her title as publisher of the U.S. edition of National Geographic.As part of the restructuring, 10 sales and marketing division positions were eliminated in an effort to “evolve our business to adapt to changing marketplace,” magazines vice president and group publisher Stephen Giannetti told FOLIO:.  Remaining sales representatives will be referred to as “brand managers.”last_img read more

Flipkart valuation falls on markdown of share price by mutual fund trusts

first_imgFlipkart’s shares have taken an unprecedented hit over a years’ time due to a series of markdowns by various mutual fund (MF) trusts. Morgan Stanley, a minority stakeholder in the online retailer, has also reported that its MF unit has knocked off a huge chunk the company’s share value.Over the last one year, Morgan Stanley trust has lowered Flipkart’s per-share value to $87.9 as of March 31, 2016 from $142.24 in June 2015. Based on this, the company’s valuation at today’s share price adds up to $9.39 billion — a fall of 46 percent from the $15.2 billion valuation in June last year.The Mint reported that other MF trusts like Valic Co 1 and Fidelity Rutland Square Trust II have marked down the company’s valuation by 29.4 percent and 39.6 percent, respectively, as of February, according to a regulatory filing with U.S. capital market regulator, Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). However, the daily noted that their combined holdings of Flipkart share were miniscule.Morgan Stanley’s downgrade perhaps strengthens the view that Flipkart was overvalued, said the Mint report. However, Flipkart’s CEO Binny Bansal told the daily these trusts were in actuality very small investors and “…have their way of (calculating valuations) which isn’t clear. If in future they mark up our valuation by 30 percent, it’s not like we’re suddenly going to be happy. The way we look at it is that when we raise money, that’s when we get a valuation.”In recent times, too, the markdown exercise by different MF trusts has taken its toll on Flipkart raising fresh funds. India’s No. 1 e-tailer firm’s fund crunch since late last year might affect its position in the light of competition from global giant Amazon, said an Economic Times report. The U.S.-headquartered e-commerce firm has pumped in over Rs. 3,200 crore since December 2015 in its India unit.Business Standard reported that the company is also on the cusp of launching its Amazon Prime service in India, which will provide free, quick and one-day delivery of goods to individuals and their families for an annual fee. The daily noted that it was this service that had helped Amazon conquer the U.S. market early on. It also noted the rise of the Chinese behemoth Alibaba in India to add to the e-commerce race.ET reported that Morgan Stanley had invested in Flipkart shares as early as 2013 in the series D round of funding. Additionally, the financial major had also participated in the e-tailer’s $1-billion equity sale in August 2014. Its total shareholding in Flipkart, however, remains undisclosed.Flipkart’s other significant shareholders include a T Rowe Price-managed mutual fund, South African media giant Naspers, New York-based investment firm Tiger Global, Singapore sovereign wealth GIC, early-stage investment firm Accel and Russian billionaire Yuri Milner’s DST Global.Binny, who took over the CEOs chair from the other Bansal (Sachin) co-founder recently, has reportedly said the company is on the process of being restructured with a new long-term road map in view.last_img read more

Judge Ed Emmett Is Concerned About Potential Property Tax Reform In Texas

first_imgListen X 00:00 /01:18 Chaz MillerJudge Ed Emmett notes that Harris County already serves about two million people who live in unincorporated areas and needs the revenue the property taxes provide.State lawmakers convened in Austin this week and meanwhile, in Houston, local officials are worried about decreasing revenues if some proposed legislation gets its way.That proposed legislation is a bill called SB 2.State Sen. Paul Bettencourt, a Republican from Houston, introduced it to reform the property tax system in Texas.The bill calls for limiting the amount by which local governments could increase property taxes to four percent per year, down from the current cap of eight percent.Judge Ed Emmett says he is concerned because there are already about two million people in unincorporated areas and Harris County is still growing.“We have to be sure that the Legislature just doesn’t tie our hands to where we cannot build roads, build flood control projects, do the things to keep our community safe that are our responsibility,” Emmett noted after the weekly meeting of the Harris County Commissioners Court.But Harris County officials aren’t the only ones concerned.Jeff Coyle, director of Government and Public Affairs for the City of San Antonio, contends that cities make up less than twenty percent of the average tax bill.“So, if you reduce revenues to cities, you are going to have a marginal impact on the overall tax bill and the challenge of escalating property values is going to continue,” Coyle said.In the long term, Emmett says he would like Texas to consider replacing the property tax with another revenue source, such as a consumption tax.

The new age of Voyeurism

first_imgIt is well known that men can be great voyeurs. Voyeurism is a type of high that is common to both men and women; however the former are generally more associated with this kind of activity. Through the ages some men have been peeping toms, ogling at unclad women, through the lens of a binocular or simply chinks in doors or windows. When an undressed woman is unaware that she is being watched, it becomes an ugly infringement on ones privacy, instead of being a simple prank.   Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Though voyeurism has been there since the beginning of time, it has finally turned into a very sleazy sport in the new millennium, thanks to a host of gadgets like pinhole cameras or the mobile phones.The mobile phone today has taken the centre stage in this game of voyeurism. Fitted with high resolution cameras they can click pictures with life like colors and picture quality. The new generation of phones in the hand of a voyeur can create havoc in anyone’s life. A hapless girl may be clicked while in the change room or at a sea beach with absolutely no knowledge of such a dangerous prank.  The internet coupled with revolution in communication technology and data transfer mediums like the infamous MMS, have the power to destroy lives at the touch of a button.  Rapid data exchange between users can make a local video recording, accessible to millions. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixAn instant sensation is created, especially if it features a leading actress or even a starlet, in various stages of undress. A careless move even with a trusted boyfriend can become a reason for lifelong embarrassment.Some people claim that often when it comes to an actresses or model, this medium is manipulated by the victim for maximum publicity. Starlets with flagging careers will instantly get noticed by all the right people, in case her MMS gets leaked. She may even make the morning headlines. However in most cases the world over, it has been observed that fake videos or morphed images are the culprits, done by creative individuals who indulge in this sick sport of digital voyeurism, just to  victimize and torment  their favorite matinee idols.In my opinion such individuals must be given the luxury of enjoying an all expenses paid holiday, at the picture perfect 10 X 10 foot jail cell, where they may explore their creativity with the help of a stick of chalk, but within the confines of their permanent lockup …….Salloli Kumar has been a regular on the page 3 circuit for nearly a decadelast_img read more

The significance of ChristmasThe significance of Christmas

first_imgWebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite Purity was forgotten and morality was neglected.  In the midst of these conditions, Christ was born and He worked a transformation in the lives of people. He gave a new and spiritual turn to the lives of man.There came a change upon the land. People started upon a new way of life. Thus a new era dawned for the world. Jesus Christ was not born in a grand palace. He was not born to wealthy or learned parents.Jesus Christ was born in a simple, lowly place; a corner of a stable. He was born to humble and poor parents, who had nothing to boast about, except their own spotless character and holiness. The significance of Christmas is known to men, all over the world. Though it is true that Christmas is celebrated as the day of the birth of Christ into this world, it also symbolises a very deeply significant truth of the spiritual life.Jesus Christ is the very personification of Divinity. He was born at a time when ignorance, superstition, greed, hatred and hypocrisy prevailed upon the land.last_img read more

Zebra Medical Vision Announces 12 Million Funding Round

first_imgNews | Analytics Software | May 26, 2016 Zebra Medical Vision Announces $12 Million Funding Round The round, led by InterMountain Healthcare, will accelerate development of Zebra’s imaging analytics engine to assist radiologists with automated diagnostic algorithms May 26, 2016 — Zebra Medical Vision announced an additional financing round of $12 million led by InterMountain Healthcare, with the participation of existing investors. InterMountain Healthcare, one of the top performing integrated care providers in the United States, plans to work with Zebra to accelerate the creation of meaningful imaging algorithms to improve patient care.Zebra Medical Vision was founded in 2014 with the vision of teaching computers to automatically read and diagnose medical imaging data. The company’s analytics engine helps physicians and healthcare providers analyze millions of imaging records, in an effort to close the diagnostic gap created by a billion people worldwide joining the middle class in the coming decade, who will require diagnostic services.The Zebra platform has already yielded imaging insights that have been validated using hundreds of thousands of cases. Current algorithms are in the fields of bone health, cardiovascular analysis, liver and lung indications. These algorithms, developed using Zebra’s platform, can be applied to provide health and risk management insights to patients and providers. A strategic partnership with Dell Services, who provide cloud-based imaging storage solutions to over 1,100 providers including InterMountain Healthcare, helps Zebra take its products to market.“We are excited by the opportunities that machine learning and computer vision algorithms can provide. These tools will help us improve patient care, by analyzing imaging data at a large scale for the first time, in addition to textual data,” noted Bert Zimmerli, InterMountain Healthcare chief financial officer. “When we researched this field and the various technologies available, the Zebra platform approach stood out in its proven ability to digest millions of imaging files and create new algorithms rapidly.”For more information: www.zebra-med.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Radiology Business | August 01, 2019 Philips Completes Acquisition of Carestream Health’s HCIS Business … read more News | PACS | August 08, 2019 NetDirector Launches Cloud-based PDF to DICOM Conversion Service NetDirector, a cloud-based data exchange and integration platform, has diversified their radiology automation options… read more Sponsored Content | Case Study | Radiation Dose Management | August 13, 2019 The Challenge of Pediatric Radiation Dose Management Radiation dose management is central to child patient safety.
