CALGARY – Alberta’s highest court has ruled that a class-action lawsuit against the Western Hockey League can proceed with the players involved.The suit contends that players have been paid less than the minimum wage — as little as $35 per week for between 40 to 65 hours of work.It is asking for back wages, overtime and vacation pay.The Court of Appeal dismissed various appeals calling for changes to the suit.It says in its decision that the judge who granted certification last June was right to exclude players from the league’s teams in the United States.It also agreed owners and former owners of teams in British Columbia can be named in the suit.“Absent a material change of circumstances, or reversal on appeal, the order stands,” said the ruling released Tuesday in Calgary.“Certification does not forbid evolution of the action.”The allegations contained in the suit have not been proven in court.The WHL is arguing that its players are “amateur student-athletes” and it can’t afford to pay them minimum wage on top of benefits they receive, including post-secondary scholarships.It also alleges several teams would fold if forced to pay players minimum wage.It’s the second such court case against a major junior league in Canada. The Ontario Supreme Court approved an action against the Ontario Hockey League last April.A similar suit against the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League is also pending.The three major junior hockey leagues, featuring a combined 60 teams of players between the ages of 16 and 20, fall under the umbrella of the Canadian Hockey League.
The Screen Actors Guild Awards is expanding efforts to further reduce its carbon footprint thanks to a unique reforestation partnership with Chile’s Patagonia Sur, a for-profit conservation company founded by American entrepreneur Warren Adams that is a leader in private land conservation, reforestation and carbon offsetting in South America.Though Hollywood and Chilean Patagonia are thousands of miles apart, these two unique regions are being linked in an exclusive effort to battle climate change. In 2012, on behalf of the SAG Awards, Patagonia Sur planted a grove of 45 native-species trees on degraded lands in Patagonia, Chile, to help remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, thereby helping to fight the threat posed by climate change.For the 2013 SAG Awards, Patagonia Sur is planting 3,400 trees — two for each of the 1,700 guests at the Post SAG Awards Gala hosted by People magazine and the Entertainment Industry Foundation. In their gala gift bags, guests will find a code enabling them to log on patagoniasuroffsets.com/SagAwardsForest/ where they will be able to affix their names to the trees being planted in their honor within a part of Chilean Patagonia, now called the SAG Awards Forest. Viewers inspired by these efforts can also evaluate their personal carbon footprint by going to the same website.This year’s expanded partnership with Patagonia Sur continues the SAG Awards’ commitment to green practices. In October 2012, for the fourth consecutive year, the SAG Awards was honored with the Environmental Media Association’s Green Seal, recognizing the production’s outstanding efforts to implement sustainable initiatives and promote environmental awareness, while creating a nearly zero waste event.What’s in a tree? Actually quite a lot when it comes to reducing greenhouse gases. Trees capture, or sequester, carbon from the atmosphere in the process known as photosynthesis.In 2010, Patagonia Sur launched a reforestation project at its 8,000-acre Valle California property in the Palena region of southern Chile, with the aim of enhancing biodiversity and selling carbon offsets. The company is planting a mix of native beech trees on degraded lands that were previously cleared for pastureland by early settlers. A single tree planted in Valle California will sequester nearly half a ton of carbon over an 80-year period.Patagonia Sur’s Valle California project, which planted one million trees in 2012, is the first in Chile to use native species to generate carbon offsets, and has been officially accredited by the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) by meeting three key criteria: measurability, permanence and independent verification. That means SAG Awards attendees will offset 1,700 tons of carbon, negating their carbon footprint.Patagonia Sur is a for-profit conservation venture that invests in, protects, and enhances scenically remarkable and ecologically valuable properties in Chilean Patagonia. A leader in eco-tourism experiences, Patagonia Sur has developed sustainable lodging on two of its properties, Valle California and Melimoyu, (patagoniasurreserves.com), where guests may enjoy all the amazing outdoor activities scenic Chilean Patagonia has to offer.The 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards will be simulcast live on TNT and TBS Sunday, Jan. 27, 2013. Nominations were announced Wednesday, Dec. 12, 2012.
APTN National NewsAboriginal Veterans Day is officially recognized in only one Canadian province.Manitoba has commemorated the day since 1994.On Tuesday, one of the few national veterans events was held in a small Manitoba community called Arborg, which is located near the Peguis First Nation.APTN National News reporter Matt Thordarson travelled to the local Legion there for the ceremony.
CALGARY — The first phase of Imperial Oil Ltd.’s Kearl oilsands mine will cost $2 billion more than its most recent estimate as the company faced issues transporting Korean-made modules to the mine site in northern Alberta and contended with harsh weather during startup.This is the second cost increase for the $12.9-billion project. Its initial price tag was $7.9-billion in 2009, later raised to $10.9-billion two years later when changes were made to its scope and design.Taking into account a second $8.9-billion phase in the works, the whole development is expected to have a cost of $6.80 per barrel, up 10% from a prior estimate of $6.20.When the Calgary-based firm announced in 2009 that it would build the Kearl mine, it expected three phases of roughly the same size. Later, it decided to build the mine in two phases, with smaller projects along the way to boost output in increments.The cost overrun is likely to have an impact on the reputation of Imperial, and its U.S. parent company ExxonMobil Corp., as “premium” operators, wrote CIBC analyst Andrew Potter in a note to clients.Imperial faced legal and regulatory delays in bringing enormous pieces of equipment to the mine site, which were shipped across the Pacific and then through the United States and Canada by river barge and truck.The 200 modules had to be broken up into smaller pieces so that they could be transported along interstate highways and then put together again near Edmonton.“This was an enormous work effort… involving hundreds of workers for more than a year,” said Imperial spokesman Pius Rolheiser.Imperial rejigged the order in which the work was conducted so that it wouldn’t be thrown completely off schedule.But that meant commissioning and startup activity timelines were “compressed” and had to take place during harsh winter weather.“We’ve been dealing with minus 40 (degree) weather at times and that necessarily has an impact from a safety perspective on how employees can work,” said Rolheiser.In the end, Imperial expects Kearl to start churning out bitumen during the first three months of this year, a bit later than its previous late 2012 target.Potter said there’s still some risk to the schedule.“We would not be surprised to see production not starting up until May,” he wrote.Despite the challenges, Kearl remains a “very, very attractive project” that will produce oil for four or five decades, Rolheiser said.The cost estimate of the second phase remains at $8.9-billion and is not at risk of being jacked up by the same factors that affected the first.“With the exception of that one unnecessary external factor — the module transportation delays, which couldn’t have been anticipated and over which we had no control — the execution of the Kearl initial development was exemplary from a productivity standpoint, most importantly form a safety standpoint,” said Rolheiser.Also Friday, Imperial reported a 7% increase in net income in the fourth quarter as lower expenses more than offset a decrease in revenue.Imperial, a publicly traded subsidiary of Houston energy heavyweight ExxonMobil Corp., said net income in the last three months of 2012 was $1.07-billion or $1.26 per share, above 2011’s $1.01-billion, or $1.18 per share.It also handily beat analysts estimates of 99 cents per share, according to Thomson Reuters.Revenue fell to $7.8-billion from $8.1-billion, in line with estimates. However, expenses also dropped to $6.39-billion from $6.86-billion.In afternoon trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange, Imperial shares were down two cents at $43.78.The Canadian Pres
Trump proposal aims at another way of getting people to work WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump is trying to change the subject back to his promise to make American job creation a top priority.“We want to get back to running our great country,” Trump said at a White House news conference on Friday after a week that saw Washington and much of the country fixated on the damaging testimony of his fired FBI director.Facing turmoil about investigations over his campaign’s ties to Russia, Trump plans to bring more Americans into the economy by having them start working as apprentices. The effort follows a week spent on infrastructure in which the president remained relatively vague about his policies in hopes of starting a conversation.The jobs training initiative is aimed at millions of Americans who could consider apprenticeships instead of four-year college degrees, which can leave them struggling to pay off student loans. But as presented by White House aides Friday, the push so far lacks the details of a significant policy drive.Trump’s young presidency is facing an increasingly tense period, amid the congressional and Justice Department probes into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election and ties to the Trump campaign. Other items on the Trump agenda are also mired in uncertainty, including a tax overhaul and plans to replace the health insurance law signed by President Barack Obama in 2010.To turn to jobs and apprenticeships in particular, Trump is visiting a technical college in Waukesha, Wisconsin, on Tuesday, delivering a policy speech at the Labor Department on Wednesday and meeting with eight governors at the White House on Thursday.There are few specifics as to how Trump would encourage more Americans to simultaneously work and learn as apprentices. He intends to improve co-ordination on the issue among businesses, schools and government leaders.“It’s really when those elements come together that the country has seen the best results,” Reed Cordish, a presidential aide on intragovernmental and technology issues, said in a conference call with reporters.Administration officials declined to say how much additional money would be devoted for apprenticeship programs, let alone how they intend to increase the number of people taking part— from roughly 500,000 in fiscal 2016.At a White House event earlier this year with CEOs, Trump said he was willing to try for a goal of 5 million new apprenticeships over five years. Part of the challenge, White House officials said, was changing negative attitudes toward vocational education.Funding may also prove an obstacle. Trump’s proposed budget would slash the Labor Department’s budget by a fifth to $9.6 billion and its job training programs by more than a third. The $90 million spent on apprenticeships would be spared. The plan aims to more tightly organize what his aides say are 43 job training programs across 13 agencies.Angela Hanks, of the liberal Center for American Progress, said the Trump budget betrays a fundamental misunderstanding of how apprenticeship programs work.“It’s great if we can all agree that apprenticeships are good,” she said. “But if you can’t access child care to get there, and you can’t partner to develop good programs because the workforce system that we have has been gutted, it’s hard to see how you get to the goal that the president’s laid out.”Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter who also is among his advisers, said that worker training is necessary for her father to deliver on his promise to create 25 million jobs over a decade.Many employers say they can’t find workers with the necessary skills. The number of job openings climbed above 6 million in April, an all-time high, but the level of hiring has barely risen over the past year.Apprenticeships had largely been focused on the construction sector but have since branched out to include health care and information technology, among other fields, said Andrew Cortes, who leads a committee that advises the secretary of labour on the government’s registered apprenticeship program.The Obama-era Labor Department — it also encouraged apprenticeships — noted that 91 per cent of those that completed the programs found jobs with average incomes above $60,000.Labour Secretary Alexander Acosta on Wednesday defended Trump’s budget to a House committee considering its own plan. “We’re going to do more with less,” he told members of the Appropriations Committee, describing the president’s budget priorities as “smart investments in programs that work.”“You can only do less with less,” replied Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn., who criticized the cuts in jobs programs for Americans who need the most help finding work. by Josh Boak And Laurie Kellman, The Associated Press Posted Jun 12, 2017 3:10 am MDT Last Updated Jun 12, 2017 at 7:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email
De Beers Group today announced it is seeking expressions of interest from potential buyers for its Voorspoed mine in Kroonstad, Free State. After evaluating a range of options, the decision to place Voorspoed mine on the market has been taken to provide the opportunity for responsible lower-cost operators to employ a different operating model that could potentially extend the mine’s operating life beyond 2020, thereby contributing to the host community through continued employment opportunities and economic activity.Potential buyers will be required to exhibit a record of success technically and financially, and to meet all applicable regulatory and social requirements while economically and sustainably operating the mine.Phillip Barton, CEO De Beers Consolidated Mines, said: “I am very proud of the Voorspoed mine team, who have contributed so much to the operation’s success to date and ensured it has always operated to the highest standards of environmental and social performance. However, based on our experience with other operations, we believe the most responsible course of action is to give other lower-cost operators the opportunity to purchase the mine and potentially extend its life, as this will maximise the benefit for the community and the mine’s workers.”The Standard Bank of South Africa Ltd has been appointed as financial adviser to De Beers on the proposed disposal process of Voorspoed mine.In its South African portfolio, De Beers also operates the Venetia mine in Limpopo Province and is currently making its largest ever investment in South Africa with a ZAR20 billion project to take the mine underground.

Main storyChristmas week in Clark County in 1914The following are excerpts from stories that ran in the Vancouver Columbian around the holidays a century ago. The stories are told in their own words.1914Dec. 23:City will be wet next year unless case is appealedVancouver will not be dry until January 1, 1916. The local option election on Nov. 3, in which the dry won was all for naught. Such is the import of a decision rendered by Federal Judge Cushman at Tacoma yesterday. Proceedings were brought by the Northern Brewery Company through their attorney … Miller of this city, asking that an injunction be (ordered) … restraining the county and city officials from enforcing the local opinion law in Vancouver. The company, who operate the Star Brewery in this city, is an Ohio corporation and so the proceedings could be brought in the federal court.Dec. 24:Post Office will be open ChristmasThe post office will be open from the hours of 10 to 12 tomorrow, which is Christmas day. As Saturday has been declared a legal holiday by the governor of the state, the post office will close at noon of that day. The carriers will make the route as usual to prevent the accumulation of mail in the office.Professor Kane talks to alumni of university“Within a year the University of Washington will have reached the full capacity of its buildings and will face the necessity of fixing its enrollment at 3,600 students, unless the next session of the legislature grants the regents request for two new buildings and an increase in the amount allowed for maintenance,” said Prof. Frank Kane, of the journalism faculty of the university last night at a meeting of former Washington students and their friends in the high school auditorium.…“The total revenue of the university will care for about 3,500 students, and that at the lowest per capita rate — $185 a year — of any state university in the country,” said Prof. Kane. “There now are in residence on the campus more than 3,000 students, and the total enrollment for this year will exceed 3,400.”
Eight members of the Republican minority prevented the bill from receiving the supermajority vote needed to fund the capital budget. The vote was 25-to-8, as seven members of the minority were not in attendance. In a press release House Speaker Bryce Edgmon (I-Dillingham) said: “The capital budget bill that failed to receive a three-quarter supermajority vote is completely separate from debate surrounding the Permanent Fund and the amount of this year’s dividend. We urge every member absent today to return to Juneau for a reconsideration vote and to set aside the issues that have been unnecessarily dragged into this politically charged debate There is still a chance to pass this budget, which is absolutely essential to our citizens and economy.” A reconsideration vote will be held on Monday, with a floor session scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. Monday is the 15th day of the second 30-day special session. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Alaska House of Representatives has failed to pass funding for the capital budget for the second time this year. Minority-caucus Republicans blocked the funding during a vote on Sunday. The Legislature needed to reach a three-quarters supermajority to fund Senate Bill 2002.
Bruce Denton, right, leads the downtown cleanup. (Photo courtesy Brent Fischer/CBJ Parks & Recreation)More than 100 Juneau volunteers recently joined City and Borough crews to pull weeds, sweep, hose, scrub and pick up what some estimate to be thousands of cigarette butts.It was the first event organized by an informal Downtown Improvement Group.Download Audio“I think everyone picked up cigarette butts,” said 9-year-old Adara Allen.She was a bit grossed out by all the cigarette butts that litter downtown Juneau.“We scrubbed benches and I scrubbed railings. We picked up a ton of trash. Like a lot of cigarette butts. Almost all of it was that,” she said.Adara and her 12-year-old sister Tsifira Kiehl joined their dad, Assemblyman Jesse Kiehl, in the cleanup.“Adara found a whole milk jug, partly full,” Tsifira said. “Mostly I scrubbed benches and railings and stuff. I also picked up a lot of stuff, including cans, broken glass, cigarette butts.”Cigarette butt litter is the byproduct of Juneau’s indoor smoking ban, despite the number of receptacles that line city sidewalks.Alicia Smith was scrubbing a butt receptacle on South Franklin Street. Her son Joel also had a scrub brush.“Right now I’m just scrubbing the lamp post down,” he said. “I just wanted to help clean up downtown.”Business owner Bruce Denton came up with the idea for a cleanup as part of an effort to improve the heart of the capital city. He’s been joined by an informal coalition of business and property owners, downtown residents, the Glory Hole and social service agencies.Denton took the proposal to CBJ Parks and Recreation, which welcomed the help. The city provided tools, cleaners, buckets, garbage bags, and rubber gloves. Some volunteers showed up with their own favorite tools and Juneau businesses donated other supplies.They met at Pocket Park and worked along Front, Seward and Franklin streets, and Marine Way to the Willoughby district.The small army of workers included a who’s who of city officials, a legislator, business owners and employees, a myriad of Juneau residents and some homeless folks.Deborah Harris has been in Juneau for about a month and is living at the Glory Hole, Juneau’s emergency shelter and soup kitchen.Harris was washing the historical interpretive sign in Marine Park.“So this morning we’re just getting’ all the mold and the grime and everything off and scrapin’ it up,” she said.CBJ Parks and Landscape Superintendent George Schaaf was working in Marine Park, too. He said it’s one of the hardest places in downtown to keep up.“You know a million people come through here every year, plus everything that just happens on a daily basis, so it’s more than we’re able to take care of right now,” Schaaf said.Volunteer Mike Patterson organized the Willoughby Avenue group, where they found the usual trash and a lot of Styrofoam.“And I don’t know where that came from, but it was everywhere,” Patterson said.He said it shouldn’t require a small army to pick up litter, which ought not be there in the first place.“If everybody does their part and just picks up litter and puts it in one of the many garbage receptacles we have around Juneau then it doesn’t have to get to that state again,” Patterson said. “It just takes people caring.”About 11 o’clock, the volunteers arrived back at Pocket Park, stripped off the rubber gloves and enjoyed music and a thank-you picnic for their efforts.“The last time I saw Gunakadeit Park this clean was when it was built,” said CBJ Parks and Recreation Director Brent Fischer.Fischer said keeping the capital city clean should be a community effort.“If we have community support like this, we can get it done. From the city’s standpoint, we can’t do it alone,” he said.Fischer is already looking ahead to the next scour and scrub.“I hope we can do this in the spring time, so get your rubber gloves, get your tools out, get your brushes and come back.”Denton is planning another cleanup after the cruise ships leave this fall to focus on private property, including painting some downtown buildings that could use a facelift.Original story:Downtown Juneau is a lot cleaner today thanks to more than 100 volunteers who joined city crews to sweep, hose and scrub streets and sidewalks.Juneau residents as well as the homeless joined city officials and landscape crews for the three-hour cleanup. It started at Gunakadeit Park, also known as pocket park, then wound along Front, Seward and Franklin streets to the Willoughby district.Bridget Smith spent the first hour scrubbing dirt and moss from a forgotten park post.“As citizens we all have a collective responsibility to make our community better, to make our state better, to make our nation better and this is part of it. And I am so happy to see so many people here,” Smith said.The Downtown Improvement Group hopes to join the city and borough for another cleanup this fall, at the end of the cruise ship season.
Fazlul Azim. File photoBNP candidate for Noakhali-6 constituency on Friday accused Awami League activists of attacking his supporters the previous night, reports UNB.Fazlul Azim requested protection from the election commission for himself and his supporters at a media briefing at Noakhali Press Club. He urged the administration to recover illegal firearms and arrest criminals before the 30 December election.”Armed supporters of Awami League candidate Ayesha Ferdous attacked us on Thursday night after a road rally. They vandalised 11 vehicles and snatched cameras of journalists,” Azim claimed.But Ayesha rejected the allegation and accused the BNP aspirant of holding rallies with armed miscreants and delivering provocative speeches. “My supporters did not attack anyone. Azim’s followers attacked my office and assaulted my activists,” she said.Noakhali police chief Md Ilias Sharif said supporters of the two parties fought running battles after the BNP aspirant made provocative remarks. “But I am unaware if anyone had been injured,” he said.
Microsoft unveils new Edge Privacy Tools concept by Martin Brinkmann on May 06, 2019 in Internet Explorer – 18 commentsMicrosoft unveiled a new privacy tools concept for the company’s upcoming Chromium-based Microsoft Edge web browser on the first day of the 2019 Microsoft Build conference.Microsoft’s concept introduces a privacy dashboard in the web browser that aims to make things easier to understand for users.The current version displays three privacy levels to users — unrestricted, balanced, and strict — which users may activate with a single click.The concept may sound familiar to Firefox users as Mozilla’s web browser uses privacy presets as well. Mozilla started to push Tracking Protection in Firefox in 2017 and improved the feature recently with new options.Firefox users may select standard, strict and custom to block trackers and cookies (or allow them).From what has been revealed by Microsoft, Microsoft’s privacy dashboard comes without custom option. It is certainly possible that such an option exists as Microsoft did not reveal what else is listed on the browser’s privacy and security configuration page.All three presets block malicious trackers but the similarities end there.Unrestricted: allow all trackers (but malicious ones), you will see personalized ads, sites will function correctly.Balanced: blocks trackers from unvisited sites, you will see ads based on other visited sites, sites will function correctly.Strict: blocks potential trackers, you will see minimal ads, will break some sites.Users may select any of the presets in the Edge Settings under Privacy & Security. It is likely that Balanced is selected by default but that has not been confirmed.Microsoft added Tracking Prevention information to the icon menu of sites as well. Just click on the site icon next to a site’s URL to display tracking information and options.Microsoft Edge displays the number of allowed and blocked trackers on the page, and the current privacy level. A menu is provided to change the privacy level right then and there.Closing WordsTracking blocking is not full ad-blocking but it certainly is a step in the right direction. When Edge was launched, I asked myself why Microsoft would not integrate full ad-blocking in the browser to beat Chrome and hurt Google at the same time.Google did add an ad-blocker to Chrome but the native blocker only becomes active if a site goes overboard with advertisement that Google does not find acceptable.While Microsoft has an advertising division as well, it is not nearly as dependent on advertising revenue as Google is. Tracker blocking improves the loading time of webpages significantly on average.I’d like a custom option that gives me full control over the blocking, similar to the one that is in Firefox.Now You: What is your take on this development?SummaryArticle NameMicrosoft unveils new Edge Privacy Tools conceptDescriptionMicrosoft unveiled a new privacy tools concept for the company’s upcoming Chromium-based Microsoft Edge web browser today.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisement
