NDPs Horwath urges Liberals to vote for her as only way to

first_imgTORONTO – Only the New Democrats can prevent the Progressive Conservatives under Doug Ford from forming government in Ontario next week, NDP Leader Andrea Horwath said Friday in her most direct pitch yet to Liberal voters.Speaking at a campaign stop in Toronto, Horwath said she expected a close election on Thursday.“One thing is certain: Ontarians will elect a new premier to replace Kathleen Wynne,” Horwath said in the Liberal premier’s own riding. “The choice is between me and Doug Ford, (and) to those who have voted Liberal in the past, I invite you to join us to stop Doug Ford and vote for the kind of change that Ontario needs.”In past elections, voters opposed to the Conservatives have tended to coalesce around the Liberals as their best bet.This time, however, it appears the strategic vote is poised to break in Horwath’s favour. Horwath’s voting pitch — typically seen as Ontario and federal elections move into their final stretches — comes as polls suggest either she or Ford will become Ontario’s next premier.Myer Siemiatycki, a politics professor at Ryerson University, said polling suggests a shift to the NDP away from the Liberals began unusually early this campaign given the “fear factor” around the Tories, who’ve been criticized for not detailing how they’d pay for their campaign promises.“In the past, the Liberals have typically — either federally or provincially — been regarded as, and have been, the stronger party, so the messaging has been to NDP supporters not to waste their vote,” Siemiatycki said.Wynne, who has been making her own last-ditch appeal to both Liberal and NDP voters to go with her as the voice of pragmatic experience, has also tried to frame the election as between her and Ford’s Progressive Conservatives — despite polls suggesting the Liberals are trailing badly.In an interview with The Canadian Press this week, Wynne said it was too early to discuss strategic voting — or whether it was going to break in favour of the New Democrats for the first time in years.“I don’t think we’re there yet. I don’t think we can actually say that,” Wynne said. “The falling off of Ford’s support is just becoming clear. We won’t know for a few more days exactly where people are going to go. That’s my sense.”On Friday, Wynne stuck to her defensive pitch — that she would still make the best leader — saying people need to be “very careful” in deciding who would be best at building the province.Horwath, who also planned a campaign stop Friday in St. Catharines — another seemingly impregnable Liberal fortress — said she can sense the changed sentiment as she railed against both Wynne and Ford.“Ontario wants change,” Horwath said Friday. “Doug Ford is not the kind of change Ontario needs.”Brenna Keatinge, a self-described “very progressive” Toronto resident in the normally Liberal riding of St Paul’s, said she used to consider voting Liberal when the party seemed the only viable contender against the Conservatives. This time, she said she planned to cast her ballot on June 7 for the NDP to try to keep Ford out of the premier’s office.“If I think there is a really strong chance the Conservatives would get in, then I would tend to be more strategic and vote Liberal,” Keatinge said. “But this time around, the NDP actually has a chance so … I think overall voting NDP makes the most sense.”Peter Graefe, a political science associate professor at McMaster University, said the anti-Tory coalescing appears to have started in the Ontario campaign much earlier than usual.“The Liberal and NDP campaigns are set up on this idea that there’s going to be the first part of the election — which is a primary between the two of them and the winner will then go and fight the Conservatives,” Graefe said.“What’s really remarkable this time is that within about two days of this campaign starting, that decision had more or less been made — that it was quite clear that it was going to be the NDP against the Conservatives.”Brenda Stockdale, 54, a Cambridge, Ont., resident, might be one of those anti-Ford voters the Liberals have traditionally won over, but not this time. Her faith in the Liberals was shaken and her vote will go to the NDP, she said.“They’re for the working people. I’m the working people. And that’s important to me,” Stockdale said after attending a Horwath rally in Kitchener, Ont., this week.“Our health care system and our education system has been cut so much,” said Stockdale, a health educator. “(Horwath) gives me hope that she’s going to change that.”Ford’s claim to be “for the people” is just a “facade,” she said.— with files from Peter Goffin and Shawn Jeffords.last_img read more

Kylie Jenner Visits Smile Trains Local Programs In Peru

first_imgAs part of her ongoing commitment to helping children with clefts, pop culture phenomenon and entrepreneur Kylie Jenner, creator of Kylie Cosmetics, had the opportunity to visitSmile Train’s local programs in Peru and meet with the organization’s local partner surgeons, cleft patients and their families.During her journey, Kylie visited Smile Train’s partner hospital, the Delgado Clinic in Lima, as well as the home of a child who had recently received cleft lip surgery. Kylie’s fans and supporters were able to see her visit to Peru firsthand during the seventh episode of her reality show, Life of Kylie, which aired September 10 at 9pm EST on E!Kylie’s support of Smile Train has been incredibly impactful in a short time. In 2016, she launched a special-edition lip kit in collaboration with the charity — donating 100 percent of the proceeds from the pale pink lipstick (named “Smile”) to Smile Train. Kylie first launched the lip kit on World Smile Day, and then relaunched the kit in January, both times selling out almost instantly. Since beginning her partnership with Smile Train in October 2016, Kylie has donated almost a half a million dollars to provide new smiles to over 1,800 children born with clefts.“It’s an honor to be part of changing so many children’s futures, I’m excited to continue my relationship with Smile Train and see the difference we make together,” said Jenner.“We are so impressed with Kylie’s selflessness, huge heart and extremely generous giving spirit and are so excited to have her as a Smile Train Ambassador, helping to generate awareness about our cause,” said Smile Train’s CEO Susannah Schaefer.To learn more about Smile Train’s partnership with Kylie Jenner and to show your support, donate to smiletrain.org/kylie to help provide 100%-free cleft repair surgeries and comprehensive cleft care to children suffering with untreated clefts around the world.last_img read more

Faith central to hope and resilience highlights UN chief launching initiative to

“Around the world, we see how religion is being twisted [and] cynically manipulated,” stressed the Secretary-General today, speaking at the launch of an initiative to prevent atrocity crimes, which include genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes. In his remarks, Mr. Guterres cautioned against the proliferation of hate speech – both online and offline – and said that such messages spread hostility and hatred, and encourage populations to commit violence against individuals or communities, often based on their identity. “Hate speech sows the seeds of suspicion, mistrust and intolerance [and] over time, it can play an important role in convincing people that violence is logical, justifiable, even necessary,” added Mr. Guterres, joined by UN Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide, Adama Dieng, and a number of religious leaders from around the world. Hate speech is one of the most common warning signs of atrocity crimes, Mr. Guterres said, noting that early action can be taken to prevent them from occurring and that religious leaders are key actors in that warning process. Also in his remarks, Mr. Guterres highlighted the commitment expressed in the Plan of Action for Religious Leaders and Actors to Prevent Incitement to Violence that Could Lead to Atrocity Crimes to promote peace, understanding, mutual respect and the fundamental rights of all people. He said the Plan sets out a broad range of ways in which religious leaders can prevent incitement to violence and contribute to peace and stability. “These principles summon us to show respect for all human beings, even those with whom we might profoundly disagree or whose cultures might seem alien,” he said, calling for the widest possible dissemination and implementation of the Plan of Action. “Let us work together to prevent and end atrocity crimes and all affronts to human rights and dignity,” he stated. The Plan of Action is the product of two years of consultations led by Special Adviser Dieng, that involved religious leaders and actors representing different faiths and faith-based organizations around the world. Known more commonly as the “Fez Plan of Action” for the city in Morocco where it was drafted in 2015, the Plan called for monitoring of incitement, the development of alternative messages, engagement in dialogue, efforts to develop and revise education to include better mainstreaming of appreciation of all cultures, engaging in and strengthening inter-religious and intra-religious dialogue and activities to ensure understanding, respect and communication, engaging in dialogue on grievances, strengthening clarity of message and engaging with political leaders.It was further developed over the past two years in discussions with religious leaders, as well as young people, women and civil society groups. Mr. Dieng spoke to UN Radio ahead of today’s launch. He said the Plan has been designed to counter the kind of ideology that led to the genocide against the Yazidi minority group at the hands of Islamic State (ISIL) militants.

MEPs are talking out of both sides of their mouths Sinn Féin

first_img“It is vast, it is daunting, I am not going to lie. But the thing is that there are very concrete things that you can do as an MEP such as fighting against the erosion of workers rights which is a big issue at the moment…“… What Sinn Féin are going to offer is concrete solutions. We’re putting forward documents about creating jobs, using the European Investment Bank to help to do that, to invest in infrastructure, and we think that our proposals are very concrete. They’re not just, you know, soundbites.” SINN FÉIN’S CANDIDATE for the European elections in Dublin, Lynn Boylan, has hit out at Fine Gael’s Brian Hayes as the race for the three-seats in the capital heats up.Boylan, an ecologist, is hoping to capitalise on the growing support for Sinn Féin by taking a seat in the European Parliament that the party’s deputy leader Mary Lou McDonald missed out in in 2009.“Why I am running is I am damn angry about the situation,” she told TheJournal.ie “I moved back to Dublin in 2010, I am from Tallaght originally. In terms of why I am running for the election is I think we need proper representation. On who will be elected in Dublin: “Honestly, I don’t know, I’d hope that… I suppose I certainly wouldn’t like to see Brian Hayes elected. I think that I’d like to see what they’re proposing first of all, I haven’t seen their manifestos from the other candidates.”On serving a full five-year term: “My intention is to be an MEP for Dublin for the full five years.”On how many member states are in the EU: “27″. (It’s 28, including Ireland)On who is the head of the European Commission: “Barroso”. (It is Jose Manuel Barroso)On who is head of the European Council: “The council, em, that would be the Greek minister at the moment, wouldn’t it? [Pause] Its not Schulz, he’s the president of the European Council. You’ve caught me.” (It’s Herman van Rompuy)On the perception that Sinn Féin is anti-EU: “We’re not an anti-EU party. We believe that Ireland’s place is at the heart of Europe, and in the European Union, but on an equal footing. We believe in each sovereign state having an equal standing and that MEPs and government ministers, when they go over to the European Council, they should be representative of the people who elected them and I think that that’s what’s wrong. People’s level of trust in Europe has dropped dramatically.”Other candidates currently in the running for the European elections in Dublin include independent Nessa Childers, Mary Fitzpatrick for Fianna Fáil, Brian Hayes for Fine Gael, Emer Costello for Labour, Paul Murphy for the Socialist Party, Eamon Ryan for the Green Party, and Brid Smith for People Before Profit.TheJournal.ie intends to speak to all European Parliament candidates in the capital and elsewhere in the country before May’s elections.Emer Costello: Single-party FG government would have implemented Greek-like austerityFollow our European elections coverage here >center_img “MEPs are talking about of both sides of their mouths. They go over there, they talk the good talk here and then they disappear into Brussels and seem to just be happy to rubberstamp everything.”A long-time member of Sinn Féin, Boylan has no legislative experience and failed to get elected in the 2007 general election or the 2009 local elections in Kerry. But she claims working for Safefood for the past six years has given her experience of dealing with food regulations.“My background is in environmental management and food safety and a lot of regulation that comes out of Brussels refers to environmental management and food safety,” she claimed.Hayes and Costello criticismHitting out at her opponent in the May 23 elections, Boylan said that Hayes, who announced he is seeking the Fine Gael nomination this week, “represents everything that is wrong with the whole economic crisis”.“I really believe if people think Brian Hayes is going to go over and champion the cause of Dublin then they just need to look at the constituency he represents,” she said.“He represents the area where I am from in Dublin, [where there are] huge levels of unemployment and inequality. He doesn’t even have a constituency office in his own area.”She said she does not see Hayes “is suddenly miraculously going to appear as a knight in shining armour for Dublin”.She also hit out at Emer Costello, Labour’s candidate and sitting MEP in the capital.“Take the example of Emer Costello, she talks about championing youth unemployment and yet when she was given the opportunity to vote in favour of increasing the budget on the youth guarantee she voted against it as did Fianna Fáil and as did Fine Gael,” Boylan said.Lynn Boylan on…People not caring about what goes on in Europe:“I think you have to make it relevant to people. You have to be accountable but you also have to be engaging with your electorate… Almost 70 per cent of legislation that effects people every day of their lives comes out of Brussels and I think that’s the message that we have to get across to people, that it is very relevant to them.”On what she, and Sinn Féin, can offer to Brussels: last_img read more

Rundown road to Shalban Bihar Mainamati drives away tourists

first_imgThe awful condition of road drives tourists away from Shalban Bihar and Mainamati in Cumilla. Photo: UNBThe awful condition of around two and a half kilometres of road stretching from Cumilla Kotbari to Cumilla University in sadar upazila is causing immense sufferings to local people as well as discouraging tourists from visiting different archaeological sites, including Shalban Buddhist Bihar and Mainamati Museum.University students, tourists and local people have to face problems as potholes and cracks on this road have made the vehicular movement difficult.Besides, the famous archaeological spots are losing attraction to visitors due to the dilapidated road as it is the only way to the historical sites.Ataur Rahman, regional director of Department of Archaeology (Chattogram and Sylhet divisions), said the number of tourists has been decreasing gradually due to the rundown road.“This year the authorities concerned set a target to earn Tk 15 million as revenue from the Shalban Bihar and Mainamati Museum but the target fell short by Tk five million,” he said.During a recent visit to the road stretching from Cumilla Polytechnic Institute to Cumilla University, the UNB correspondent found that small and large potholes and cracks have developed on the road.Vehicles, including auto-rickshaws and human-haulers, cannot move on the road as those often get stuck on the potholes and overturn.Passengers are often seen pushing up their stuck vehicles to reach their destinations.Locals said there are many tourist spots in the district, including Shalban Bihar, Cumilla University, Mainamati Museum, Itakhola Mura, Rupban Mura, Latikot Mura, Cumilla Cadet College, Lalmai Hill and Dinosaur Park.Mitali and Mariam, two students of Cumilla University, said they have to cross the road every day amid fear of possible accidents.They also demanded immediate steps to renovate the road.Mustafizur Rahman, a tourist who came here with his family members to visit the archaeological sites of the district, said, “I’m going to the Shalban Buddist Bihar and Mainamati Museum but now it seems impossible to reach there as the road condition is very bad.”Tariqul Islam Rony, a resident of No 24 ward of the city corporation area, said the road has been lying unrepaired for long but the local administration did not take any initiative to make it fit for plying of vehicles and the movement of pedestrians.Anupam Barua, chief executive officer of Cumilla City Corporation, said the renovation work on the road will start soon as a tender has been floated for the task.last_img read more

Vegan Chef Grows Career in DC

first_imgWhen Rakhel Yisrael began selling her homemade vegan cuisine in 2009, she had few resources, but a lot of ambition. “I had a cooler that was able to strap on my back and I would make deliveries on my bicycle,”Yisrael told the AFRO, March 20. “I would speed down U St. to drop off deliveries to the Universal Capoeira [Angola] Center.” Yisrael’s love for food came at an early age. “When I was a child, I used to cook all the time at home and I always liked trying new spices,” she recalled. “I would have my family taste it and they were like ‘Yeah that’s good!’”After high school, she met a former classmate who introduced her to vegan cuisine. She became an assistant chef at Soul Vegetarian Restaurant on Georgia Ave. northwest, D.C. and Everlasting Life Cafe in Capitol Heights, Md.In 2009, she spent six months in Israel where her knowledge of vegan food deepened as well as her skills in hospitality and food service. Though she’d grown up on fast-food chains and local carryout, mixing vegan and processed food began to disagree with her body. Soon, she began exploring literature that spoke to the benefits and guidelines around healthy eating.“I started reading a lot about how fruits and vegetables cleanse the body,” she says. “I also read in the Bible in Genesis Chapter 9 where it says ‘flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat’ and every plant is given to us for food. So that was one of the major reasons that I changed my diet – I could not believe that it said that in the Bible.”After transitioning fully to veganism, she’s experienced results that have helped her individually and as a person of color. “Once I started eating more fruits and vegetables, I started to understand myself more and my thoughts became more clear,” she says. “[And] I believe eating vegan is very important for the Black community because it helps us to really reach our highest self.”In 2012, Yisrael officially launched Rakhel’s Live Cuisine as a catering service. Over the years, growth became necessary. “I realized that I needed help and to serve more people, I couldn’t just do it on one single bike,” she says.She created a budget and was able to hire a driver. On a typical week, she caters about four events and prepares meals for over two-dozen personal customers. “The number [of customers] is growing because a lot of my customers have been referring people to me—they’ve been my PR,” she says.She also moved from preparing meals in Columbia Heights to a kitchen in southeast, which is known to be a food desert for healthy options.The key in serving vegan food, like any other cuisine, is creating meals with flavor and soul. On Yisrael’s menu, the barbeque steak, steak and gravy, raw pizza and salads like ginger kale, coconut curry kale and sweet basil kale have customers coming back for more.When she isn’t coming up with new concepts for her business, she continues to gain experience in the restaurant industry as the raw chef at Senbeb Cafe in northwest, D.C.It’s definitely been a long journey – I’ve grown a lot and I’ve been doing a lot more,” she says. “The next step is a restaurant or a cafe.”To view Yisrael’s weekly menus, cooking tips and recipes, visit http://rakhelslivecuisine. tumblr.com/.

Chicken Nugget Taste Tester is a Real Job—in the UK

first_img Minneapolis Bans Construction of New Drive-ThrusBurger King’s Impossible Whopper Available Nationwide For Limited Time I’d like you, dear readers, to be the first to know: I am leaving my job at Geek.com to pursue my dreams and become a chicken nugget taste tester.British big-box retailer B&M is looking for a new “chicken nugget connoisseur.”As the discount supermarket chain prepares to launch a new fresh and frozen food range, it requires one brave soul to step up to the plate—literally. So I decided to take one for the team.A very punny job posting suggests the company is looking for a “tasty” worker “who’ll be worth their weight in … food.”Do you have what it takes to be a chicken nugget connoisseur?According to B&M, experience can include, but is not limited to:Getting the 20-share box of nuggets from McDonald’s and keeping them all for yourselfBeing the first in the office kitchen whenever someone says there’s cake [guilty as charged!]That time you tripped and fell at a buffet and saved the plate before yourselfGoing to an event or party because there is free food [how else do you think journalists survive?]You value the importance of a fish finger sandwich in life [for non-Brits, that’s fishsticks between bread]You can conduct a PowerPoint presentation on the reasoning behind curly fries being nicer than chipsCompensation comes in the form of monthly £25 ($35) vouchers to spend on food in B&M stores. Imagine how many bags of edible gold that could buy. There is no word on how long the “temporary” job will last, so it’s probably best to stockpile the breaded poultry.The job does, however, mean leaving your family and friends to live in North West England and translate the Liverpudlian accent.“Just like a good steak, this opportunity is rare and shouldn’t be diced with,” the post said. “If you think this is your calling please upload a paragraph on why you think you deserve the opportunity and what relevant experiences you have.”Oddly, despite promising a “range” of upcoming cuisine, the company does not appear to be in the market for a waffle buff or ravioli specialist.B&M did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Were Getting a FullSize Commodore 64 in 2019

first_img There was much excitement back in 2017 when a C64 Mini got announced. However, the version that hit store shelves wasn’t without its problems, most notably the poor joystick. It did include 64 games and could run BASIC, but the keyboard didn’t function meaning you needed to plug another one in to type. An almost great release then, but not the end of the story.Retro Games Ltd., who gave us the C64 Mini, this week revealed we’re getting a follow-up device. This time it’s a full-size Commodore 64 complete with a working keyboard!Related: Inspiring Quotes From ’80s and ’90s MoviesOn Christmas Eve, the first photos of a working prototype were posted on Facebook. The images reveal an early version of the Commodore 64 direct from the manufacture and “small modifications” are likely. There is no release date yet beyond 2019, but with the pre-production prototype already created it will hopefully appear before the summer.Retro Games isn’t revealing the final spec just yet, but I’m confident they will have taken into account all the complaints and feedback received about the C64 Mini. It’s also pointed out in the Facebook post how much the Mini has been improved by recent firmware updates. At the very least that shows they are listening, which bodes well for the full-size Commodore 64.Related: The Most Successful Companies Led By EntrepreneursFor now, the C64 Mini can be picked up for just $50. As the next model is much larger and includes a functioning keyboard I expect it to cost more than the $79.99 price point the Mini launched at. If they can keep the price below $100 then it should do well and entice many Mini owners to make the upgrade.

Service dogs welcomed in most Costa Rican restaurants

first_imgNo related posts. When Sarah and her poodle Ashley arrived at a popular steakhouse in La Fortuna, in northern Costa Rica, they were hoping to satisfy their hunger and get some relief from the sun’s heat. But as soon as they took a seat at a table under the shade of the restaurant’s front awning, they were asked to leave.Sarah asked to speak with the manager, who said they were welcome to stay, but they had to sit at a picnic table behind the restaurant, which was in direct sunlight. Disappointed, they left.It shouldn’t have happened. Ashley the poodle was trained and certified in the United States to recognize if her owner, Sarah, is going to have a seizure. Sarah is accustomed to traveling everywhere with Ashley.“Up to the point of the La Fortuna restaurant, and one other restaurant in San José, near the airport Holiday Inn, I’ve had a very accepting, and welcoming experience in Costa Rica,” Sarah, who asked that we not use her last name, said.The rejection came as a surprise, considering the permissiveness of a law regarding service animals in the U.S. Costa Rica hasn’t quite caught up.In 1990, U.S. President George H.W. Bush signed the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) into law. This U.S. federal law allows people with disabilities to take their service animals anywhere, and it does not require the service animal to wear a vest or a tag or other identification. All the owner has to do is say, “It’s a service animal,” say what work or task it performs, and the animal must be admitted.The 2010 U.S. ADA legislation defines a service animal as “any dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or other mental disability.” Some state and local laws define service animal more broadly. In some areas of the U.S., snakes, lizards, chickens, pigeons and rodents have been declared service animals, allowing them to ride public transportation, live in apartments and enter private businesses.In Costa Rica, the laws have yet to define “service animal.” In fact, up until 2008, the term “perro guía” (“seeing-eye dog” or “guide dog”) was the only animal written in to legislation concerning disabilities. The 2008 legislation, Law 8661, introduced a broader term than guide dog: “assistance must be offered through humans or animals or intermediaries, i.e. sign language professionals, guides or readers, to facilitate access to public places.”While the language seems extremely vague, the government-appointed National Council for Special Education and Rehabilitation (CNREE) states that this law allows for broader definition of animal than “guide dog.”“This law … refers to the use of animal assistance in general, and not specifically for people with visual disabilities, but for people with disabilities who require animal assistance,” the CNREE states.So the La Fortuna steakhouse was in the wrong, acting against Costa Rican law by not permitting Sarah and Ashley to eat in the restaurant. Curious about whether this was a singular incident, I called a few more places around Costa Rica to ask whether a service animal would be permitted. At each restaurant, the person who answered the phone put me on hold to consult with someone else. The answer was always the same though: There would be no problem at all.Many restaurants in Costa Rica are seemingly accepting of service dogs. I wonder, though, how accepting they would be of service iguanas or snakes? Facebook Commentslast_img read more
