President confident unity Government will continue

President Maithripala Sirisena on Wednesday said he is confident the unity Government will continue until 2020. Sirisena told local newspaper editors that despite attempts by the opposition to topple his Government he will ensure it remains till his term in office ends. His refusal to do so has led to a rift in the Sri Lanka Freedom Party with some members threatening to leave and join the opposition.Sirisena said that there are divisions within any political party and the degree of the rift changes from time to time. Asked about the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) resolution on Sri Lanka, President Sirisena said that the government would continue to implement the agreed terms. Sirisena, who heads the Sri Lanka Freedom Party is under pressure to withdraw from the agreement with the United National Party. He said that charges against violation of party discipline are being studied and action would be taken after completion of investigations.Sirisena said he is dedicated and committed to build the Sri Lanka Freedom Party as a clean, unstained, uncorrupt and principled party that provides leadership to the nation through honest and dedicated politicians.“The people in the country yearn for unstained politicians and my determination is to ensure that the Sri Lanka Freedom Party is a party that provides such politicians to make the people’s dream a reality,” he said. “It is a slow process and we cannot have speedy solutions. However we have categorically stated that the government would implement those clauses while safeguarding the sovereignty and independence and only the steps that are compatible to the country would be taken,” he said. (Colombo Gazette) read more

Companies push ahead on pot gummy plans despite hazy regulations

TORONTO — Chewy, colourful cannabis-infused gummies in bright colours and in the shape of animals or creatures are among the best-selling edible pot products on the black market — but Canadians shouldn’t expect them on legal shelves.Regulations that will make edibles legal come into force Oct. 17, exactly a year after Canada legalized the sale and purchase of dried and fresh cannabis, oil, seeds and plants. The rules laid out so far are aimed at keeping the new pot products out of the hands of kids and stipulate they can’t be seen as “appealing to young persons” — but Health Canada has yet to provide additional details on exactly what crosses the line.That leaves companies grappling with how to market gummies — an already popular adult product based on a children’s treat — without being too much fun.THC-infused gummy bears are unlikely to be among the new products set to hit legal shelves as early as December but companies are pushing ahead with pot-gummy plans they believe will allow them to eventually cash in on consumer demand without resorting to colourless and flavourless blobs. Licensed producer Zenabis Ltd.  said it is prioritizing the gummies’ category of edibles because of its demonstrated and growing appeal south of the border, said Kyrsten Dewinetz, its program manager of food and beverage services.“It’s popular with many different demographics… We’re probably going to forge ahead a little bit more quickly in this category,” she said, adding Zenabis aims to launch its line of gummies by early 2020.The earliest new goods can be sold legally will be mid-December, due to the required 60-day notice companies must provide to Health Canada of their intent to sell them.A recent survey of Canadians conducted by Deloitte showed that current users’ most-preferred edible format was a gummy at 26 per cent, followed by cookies at 23 per cent, brownies at 22 per cent and chocolate at 16 per cent.Gummies are appealing to consumers for a variety of reasons, including portability and the ability to conceal them easily in public, said Rishi Malkani, a partner focusing on cannabis mergers and acquisitions for Deloitte.“They’re tiny, they’re easily ingestible, you could do it quite discreetly… It’s a little easier to transport or take with you to an event than brownies or other edibles, or even beverages for that matter.”The Canadian market for the soon-to-be-legalized goods is worth an estimated $2.7 billion annually, with edibles amounting to $1.6 billion alone, according to Deloitte.In the U.S., where edibles are already available in several states where recreational pot is legalized, gummies are more popular than ever, according to BDS Analytics.During the first four months of 2019, 17 of the top 20 selling ingestible products in California, Colorado and Oregon were gummies, according the U.S. firm.And despite similar rules requiring that edibles makers not appeal to kids in various states, cannabis gummies and candy ripping off well-known brands continue to pop up.In July, confectionery giant Mondelez Canada launched a lawsuit in a California court against a company called Stoney Patch Kids, whose products look virtually identical to its Sour Patch Kids product.The risks to children of such products were outlined in recent research by the Canadian Paediatric Society, which found that a “significant number of young children” required medical care after ingesting cannabis in the months surrounding legalization last October.The preliminary research found 16 reported cases involving recreational pot between September and December 2018.And in late July, the Quebec government decided to unveil its own more stringent rules for pot edibles that would ban the sale of cannabis candies, confections and desserts including chocolate and “any other product that is attractive to minors.”The provincial government said that Ottawa’s measures to regulate so-called Cannabis 2.0 products would not allow Quebec to “achieve its public health and safety objectives.” Quebec’s rules are subject to a 45-day public consultation before they take effect.If Quebec’s stricter edibles come into force, that could result in a $300-million annual drop in Quebec’s cannabis market — and $40 million lost on gummies alone, according to Deloitte.“It will be a significant impact,” said Malkani, noting that gummies are expected to account for roughly eight or nine per cent of edibles in Quebec.It’s a move that officials in Washington State almost took last year, when it unexpectedly asked pot edibles makers to halt production of candies and gummies in October. Regulators later softened its stance to allow for candies and gummies, but limited the colours and shapes to only those from a government-approved list and issued packaging guidelines.Health Canada has said edibles must not be “reasonably considered to be appealing to a young person” but has not stipulated which colours, flavours or shapes will be allowed.The level of appeal to children of a given product will be determined on a case-by-case basis, and the factors used include shape, colour, flavour, name, packaging and how it is presented, agency officials told reporters on a briefing in June.“If a gummy bear is appealing to a young person, would that be permitted? The answer is no,” one Health Canada official said.The federal agency said that it would publish guidance that will outline the factors to be considered, but the additional details have yet to be released.Meanwhile, companies are rushing to get production of these goods started as soon as possible to avoid the initial supply shortages seen in the wake of legalization last October.Cam Battley, the chief commercial officer for Aurora Cannabis Inc., said the licensed producer agrees with the government’s overall objective but there remains a “lack of clarity” on exactly what is permissible. Still, he said the Edmonton-based firm has a gummy game plan — but would not go into specifics.“We’re confident that we have a strategy that will successfully thread that needle, supporting the policy objectives of migrating those patients over to the legal system but at the same time not being attractive to children,” said Battley.

BC Ferries plans offpeak travel discounts and airlinestyle booking system

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Dirk Meissner, The Canadian Press Posted Dec 3, 2014 2:49 pm MDT VICTORIA – BC Ferries says its customers should be able to reserve trips like they would book airline tickets and hotel rooms and receive discounted fares online at off-peak travel times.Company president Mike Corrigan said Wednesday that the service has submitted a plan to BC Ferry Commissioner Gord Macatee as part of a cost-cutting operation to reduce the pressure on potential fare increases.He said the Fare Flexibility and Digital Experience Initiative will modernize how BC Ferries sets prices, markets travel, manages loads and discounts fares at off-peak travel times through e-commerce and information-and-technology upgrades.Corrigan said fare discounts haven’t been determined, but the current reservation-fee system will be dropped for customers who book online, while travellers who arrive at the ferry terminal without booking will pay more.“When people book, the beauty will be they have certainty of travel,” Corrigan said. “They will go online, they will plan, book and pay online and when they show up at the ferry terminal it will just be confirmation that they’ve done so and they will travel aboard the ferry.”Currently, ferry customers arrive at terminals and wait in line to pay with cash or credit cards. Customers who purchase a reservation prior to arrival are placed in a separate line where they are guaranteed a spot on a specific ferry sailing.“We actually want to reverse that model and do what other companies are doing and basically have everybody pre-pay,” said Corrigan.“Some airlines and other companies have 95 per cent to 98 per cent of their transactions paid for before their customers even show up. That’s where we want to get to.”He said the plan, which won’t be ready until 2017, will cost up to $15 million to implement but could be paid off within three years because traffic is expected to increase by up to five per cent.Macatee must approve the plan.BC Ferries is currently undergoing an efficiency plan to cut $54 million in costs in an effort to keep fare increases in check.

One million court cases postponed

first_imgGo-slow action by judges and prosecutors since September has resulted in more than one million cases being postponed, adding to a massive backlog that has built up in the country’s courts over the years, Kathimerini understands. Hundreds of thousands of civil and criminal cases have reportedly been frozen and thousands more are expected to be put off after judges and prosecutors decided to extend their rolling walkouts until January 19, escalating their protest at fresh cuts to their salaries imposed by the government as part of new austerity measures demanded by the country’s foreign creditors. The protracted action is believed to have deprived the cash-strapped state of millions of euros in much-needed revenue as countless cases regarding tax arrears as well as offenses where convictions are translated into financial penalties have been postponed. All the country’s courts have joined the walkouts apart from the Supreme Court and the Council of State, the country’s highest administrative court, which is pursuing legal action on behalf of its judges. Last Sunday, judges and prosecutors voted to extend their work-to-rule protest until January 19 despite the government’s offer of concessions that would have softened the blow of the reductions. Supreme Court president Rena Asimakopoulou and Supreme Court prosecutor Yiannis Tentes had addressed their colleagues before the vote in a bid to change their mind to no avail. Tentes had asked his colleagues to “lower their gaze to society and heed the demand of citizens for judicial functionaries to contribute to curbing tax evasion and widespread lawlessness.” Source: Kathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Clark County charter foe backer make their case

first_imgWhen it comes to making changes to how Clark County government operates, Nan Henriksen, a proponent of a proposed home rule charter, told The Columbian’s editorial board Tuesday that it was a matter of good government, one that would decrease “cronyism and favoritism.”On the opposite end of the spectrum, Judith Anderson, an opponent of the charter, called it too drastic a change that would “build a firewall” between residents and elected officials.“Our (current) county government is really flexible because it can respond to citizen issues,” Anderson said.Henriksen disputed that point, saying the charter wouldn’t make county government any less flexible but rather delineate roles and boost representation.The proposed charter calls for changing the role and function of the three-member elected county board, limiting its involvement in day-to-day operations and renaming its members councilors. The day-to-day operations would be handed to an unelected county manager.The charter also expands the board from three members to five, and calls for all but one of the councilors to be elected by district in the general election. The fifth councilor, who would act as the chairman of the board, would be elected countywide.The changes address systemic problems that have become a focal point in county government, said Henriksen, who previously served as the chairwoman of the 15-member board of freeholders. She said the freeholders worked hard to ensure they had a fair document to take to voters in November.last_img read more

Fortnite Brute changes coming in next update Epic says

first_img This has to be a joke…..— Zach (@Zachary78900) August 9, 2019 Epic community manager Nathan Mooney posted on the Fortnite subreddit Tuesday that the company was “evaluating” the mech gameplay. “Right now, we’re evaluating Brute gameplay, as well as observing how it performs across all modes and skill levels,” he said. “We are also working to fix movement-related bugs with the Brute to address exploits.”Fortnite players created Reddit threads and tweets about the Brute, saying it’s far too powerful to be used in the game. A video from Sunday shows Fortnite pro Turner “Tfue” Tenney telling his Twitch viewers how much he hates the mech after one caused his game to crash. Even Fortnite World Cup solos champ Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf found himself losing a match to a player in the Brute.Originally published on Aug. 6.Update, Aug. 9: Adds details of changes from Epic.  Post a comment Gaming 0 Epic will make a few changes to the Brute in update v10.10. Epic Games Season 10 of Fortnite offered one big change when it went live on Aug. 1 — the inclusion of a mech called Brute. Since then, players have been expressing their frustration over the powerful mech on social media, and developer Epic Games is going to make some changes to mech’s overpowered rocket launcher. Epic will alter the Brute in the next update, according to a developer blog post Friday. The robot’s rocket launcher will soon have a visible targeting laser and audio cues to let players know when they’re in the mech’s sights. It’s not a big change, but the sudden barrage of rockets from a non-visible Brute was one of the big issues players had with the new addition to the game.Epic says it also fixed mobility bugs causing an exploit with the Brute’s boost that some players use. The changes will come in update v10.10, which will likely release next week.Players responded to Epic’s tweet about the changes in a less than positive manner.  Share your voice GET RID OF THE BRUTE IN COMP NOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW— Leo (@LeoJayT) August 9, 2019 Great, we get to know we’re dead a few seconds earlier than before, just what I wanted— @Ta5tyy2 is dad (@IPixelzzz) August 9, 2019 Tags Fortnitelast_img read more

Stations of the Cross for trafficking victims protests New Yorks decriminalizat …

first_img Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email Share This! Pete Buttigieg: Religious left is ‘stirring’ August 29, 2019 Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,NEW YORK (RNS) — They began the day outside the Port Authority bus terminal in Manhattan, where many young, vulnerable people arriving in New York for the first time come across their predators. This was the first Station of the Cross (Jesus’ condemnation).A handful of 50 or so people led by the Rev. Adrian Dannhauser, who chairs the Episcopal Diocese of New York’s Taskforce Against Human Trafficking, stood amid the steady stream of commuters in the chill of an early April morning and read the New Testament account of Jesus being sentenced to death and taking up his cross.Then it was on to other spots in Manhattan, the Bronx and Brooklyn by bus, stopping six more times to highlight the lives of sex trafficking’s victims through an abbreviated Stations of the Cross, a traditional penitential rite often performed during Lent on Good Friday, usually inside a church.Each stop on their route was a place where people are commonly ensnared and exploited by sex traffickers and, with each stop, the group of pilgrims finding resonances between the suffering of victims of trafficking and the passion of Jesus: a strip club and “track” — a pick-up joint, in sex workers’ parlance — where Jesus falls for the first and third time; Covenant House, a Catholic Church refuge where victims are given succor and relief, an allusion to the fourth station, where Jesus meets his mother.The last stop was a Brooklyn motel, notorious for its use as a brothel, to illustrate the moment when Jesus is nailed to the cross.Though many Americans’ perception of sex trafficking is of foreigners who are tricked to coming to the U.S. against their will and all but imprisoned, most sex trafficking victims here are American born, according to Dannhauser. They often become sex slaves through a relationship with their abuser.As Dannhauser accompanied the pilgrims on the stations, she shared a pre-recorded story and prayer from a former victim of sex trafficking she had counseled, named Iryna, who had met her pimp on the train: “I was madly in love with him, he was so attentive. But that didn’t last long. He became moody and controlling. He didn’t like my friends. Soon I couldn’t even sit right or stand right. So by the time he began selling me it wasn’t such a big deal — I already thought I was no good.”Rev. Adrian Dannhauser, who chairs the Episcopal Diocese of New York’s Taskforce Against Human Trafficking. RNS photo by Rosie Dawson.The Stations of the Cross was also a mobile protest. In New York state, where, according to the advocacy group Sanctuary for Families, 4,000 children are sold and trafficked for sex purposes every night, legislators are considering a proposal to decriminalize all aspects of the sex trade. If approved, it would be the first such law in the U.S.Dannhauser, associate rector at Church of the Incarnation in New York, and her colleagues are fiercely opposed to the bill. “If we allow this to happen we will go back to the days of the ’70s, when you had lines of African-American women lined up in Times Square like slaves on an auction block. Wherever you have men engaged in providing sex work, you have victims of trafficking. Decriminalize the industry and you increase demand and increase supply.”Dannhauser wants to see the state adopt the so-called Nordic model, which decriminalizes those forced into the sex trade but criminalizes pimps and buyers of sexual services. She says her group’s ultimate aim is to put an end to the sex industry.DecrimNY, a coalition to “decriminalize, decarcerate and destigmatize the sex trade” in New York that is backing the bill, claims that ending the demand for prostitution does not lead to a decrease in trafficking. “The outreach to trafficked workers is often through arrest and incarceration,” said DecrimNY spokeswoman Jessica Raven, “and that in itself is traumatizing. Those most likely to be exploited are the poor and homeless, and they should be reached through service provision and other resources.”DecrimNY’s proposal also has the support of Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and the World Health Organization. They point to a five-year study of the effects of decriminalization in New Zealand, which suggested that it had not led to an increase in the sex industry.New York state Sen. Jessica Ramos, a Democrat who is sponsoring the proposal, is keen to draw a distinction between decriminalization and legalization. “We are not looking to legalize sex work or encourage the industry through licensing businesses,” she said. “But we need to acknowledge that this work takes place and that the best way to ensure that it is safe is to empower people to report violence against them when it happens.”A key area of disagreement revolves around the extent to which people selling sex are free agents.Anthony Favale, who until recently headed up the New York Police Department’s human trafficking unit, said that in his experience nearly everyone involved in prostitution had experienced coercion. “They may think they are doing this from choice, but if you go back far enough, you come back to the point where they were manipulated or forced,” he told Religion News Service. “Then they adapt to it. Some may not even see themselves as victims. Some become predators themselves.”Ramos said she had no statistics to counter Dannhauser’s claim that 90 percent of sex workers have been trafficked, “but I can tell you anecdotally,” she said, “from the people I know in my district who are sex workers, that that is not true.”She points instead to other ways people are victimized, i.e., by sex trade prosecution, citing police surveillance of men buying sex that is sometimes undertaken to identify and deport immigrants, rather than cut down on prostitution.But Dannhauser says the ultimate goal must be to end prostitution altogether.“Legislators should be looking at doing the hard work involved in providing sustainable alternatives to the sex trade,” she said. “Our job as Christians is to uphold and respect the dignity of every human being. Prostitution is inherently dehumanizing and falls far short of the abundant life to which God calls us.”You can hear more about “New York Stations of the Cross” on the BBC World Service program Heart and Soul.

first_imgWhen a city band manages to spend four years together, you know they have it going. That’s what BassFoundation, the band will be celebrating in the city — being together as a band for four years. Millennium Post caught up with them before their celebratory performance. Here are excerpts: What does the name BassFoundation signify?Our group is all about bass music. It bears a close resemblance to Jamaican music culture and dub music. Bass is a melody of music which we believe brings people together. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’What is your performance today all about?It is our fourth anniversary celebration. It was during this time that we forayed into electronica four years back. For today’s performance, we will play exclusive compositions along with dub plates from Jamaican music.How has the audience reacted to your music?The response has been phenomenal. You really cannot be here for four years unless you are accpeted. Even the electronica and dub music scene has grown over the years in India. Even in Delhi, since I belong to the city, people love electronic music. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixYour achievements so far…One of the most memorable ones was when we played at Croatia for Outlook festival. Others include Sunburn. Our performances with various International artistes like Serial Killaz (Congo Natty), Klute (Commercial Suicide), Nymfo (Critical), DJ Flight (Metalheadz), Ant TC1 (Dispatch Recordings), EBK (Renegade Hardware) are our biggest achievements.What is music for you?Music is life for us. Music is common to all humans irrespective of culture or tradition. It’s everywhere since its evolutionary. Are there any differences between the band members? How do you resolve them?Well, honestly there are not many major creative differences. If at all they arise, we talk it out and resolve them.From where do you derive inspiration?Our major inspiration has been Jamaican music. We listen to too many genres of music and jam thereafter. All of it helps us create innovative music and gives us a sense of combining the right tune with the right chord.How did BassFoundation come about?We were all active in the Delhi electronica music scene individually. At one particular jam, we met and instantly hit well with each other. Thus we decided to create our own independent electronic music venture.What are you future plans?It has already been four years in the music circuit so we will continue to play what we love. We have also contributed to albums and labels for the collectives of deejays Big Daddy Klein and Praxis, with Delhi Sultanate. Recently we launched our anniversary mix to mark our contributions and unique style of music which is available on our website for free.DETAILAt: Cocaine Bar, 2nd floor, N Block Market, Greater Kailash-1When: 1 March Timings: 9 pm onwards Phone: 9818855152last_img read more

implored the judge to "please leave my old age" can appeal the sentence though that would be a long shot "You were the captain of the ship as Dread Pirate Roberts and you enforced the law as you see fit US District Judge Katherine Forrest told Ulbricht in imposing the sentence Ulbricht may have been able to obtain lighter sentence had he pled guilty but he instead went with a far-fetched defense strategy at trial that claimed that he had started the site but that someone else was the real Dread Pirate Roberts Fridays hearing came at a court room so crowded that many spectators were forced
