Government strips local oversight of handling toxic waste water in the North

first_imgEditor’s Note: Aboriginal Affairs responded to this story and their letter to the editor is included below.By Justin LingSpecial to APTN National NewsThe Harper Government’s Northern Action Plan is forging ahead, and the first thing to go is local oversight for a little-known process of dealing with toxic waste water.Until this year, the Northwest Territories local land and water boards were responsible for licensing ‘downhole injections,’ a process through which oil and gas companies get rid of the toxic fluid byproduct of drilling. To do so, the companies drill a well and, through a process similar to fracking itself, pump the liquid at high speeds into underground rock formations.That practice required oversight and public consultations from the land and water boards, who, if satisfied, issue a Type A license.Then, with one fell swoop of the regulatory pen, Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development changed the rules. With no debate, and no legislation, licensing decisions regarding downhole injections were now the sole responsibility of the Calgary based National Energy Board. A notice of the change was put out in the Government of Canada publication, the Canada Gazette in November 2012.The reason given was to “include greater efficiency in the regulation of oil and gas activities in the Northwest Territories.”The National Energy board looks primarily at the engineering, environmental and technical side of the projects and doesn’t pretend to evaluate their social license. That, according to one board analyst, is up to the land and water boards and the companies themselves.The change, thanks in no small part to its technical nature, garnered little attention, partially overshadowed by devolution talks between Ottawa and the territory. The Harper Government began working to axe the boards’ regulatory power on downhole injections in 2010 when it announced a broader plan for Northern development, but failed to move forward on most of the announced changes. Now, as the devolution talks near an endpoint, the government seems ready to forge on, and this change is just the first step.According to Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development, the department responsible for regulating the land and water board system, the axing of the need to obtain a Type A water license from the land and water boards — was due to double-regulation. They said that the NEB already oversaw the projects; therefore there was no need for the territory to license the process at all.Numerous requests for comment from the Department of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development on the story, but none were returned.It’s good timing for industry. ConocoPhillips is looking to begin a fracking well this winter, and is in the midst of evaluation by both the land and water board and the NEB. The company refused comment on most questions, responding by email that they “respect the regulatory process,” but when asked about holding public consultations, a spokesperson did say that they offered a two-day workshop and a tour of their proposed site for those involved in the regulation process.MGM Energy, a large oil and gas company, had previously lamented the public consultation process for downhole injection at a National Energy Board conference in 2009. MGM then took aim at the territory’s environmental assessment last year after they withdrew plans for a fracking, claiming that the environmental assessment project under the land and water boards was fraught with uncertainty, could take long and could cost too much. They, and many in the territory’s business community, have pushed for the review process’ scope to be tightened.MGM, with other oil and gas companies, have lobbied the federal government extensively on the matter. The scope of the territory’s water and land boards has been the subject of numerous meetings between a half dozen lobbyists and a handful of government MPs since 2008, according to Canada’s lobbying registry.And the product of that lobbying appears to be the Action Plan to Improve Northern Regulatory Regimes, the Harper Government’s game plan for making the North friendlier to development. Changes to the Northwest Territories Waters Regulations, including the local deregulation of downhole injections, were included in that plan.This change very much appears to be step one towards turning the Sahtu into the resource capital of the North. Financial independence for the Northwest Territories, which is plagued with high unemployment in certain regions, would perfectly compliment the territory’s assumption of more powers from the Federal government. Yet Ottawa seems intent on keeping control of the territory’s development review mechanisms.Paul Dixon, Executive Director of the Sahtu Land and Water Board, said that a substantive level of oversight already exists for any waste management system, and that while the process might not be licensed by the board, they will still have the ability to consult the public on the proposed projects.However, when the Federal government informed the other land and water boards of the regulatory change, some feathers were ruffled.“Parties expressed concerns that the removal of the requirement for a Type A water license, and with it the requirement for a public hearing,” reads the summary of the consultation process, published in the Canada Gazette within the notification of the change.Industry has long been “wanting to find a way to grease the skids,” says Kevin O’Reilly, of the environmental think tank Alternatives North. He notes that vesting the power to regulate downhole injections in the NEB is problematic, as the board employs only two staff in the Northwest Territories, and isn’t very present or visible in the area.O’Reilly says that the deregulation might not have much of an impact in the short term, but he says that as more exploration begins, it will be harder to predict the impacts — especially with the fracking process, which is a relatively new and controversial process.Shauna Morgan says that direction is causing worry. “Downhole injection is an issue that community members regularly express concerns about. It is not well understood in communities near the operations.” Morgan, a policy analyst with the Pembina Institute, says that removing any layer of public consultation “will likely breed more distrust and suspicion.”“Projects are losing their social licenses,” says Dennis Bevington, New Democrat MP for Western Arctic. He told this journalist in a phone conversation that axing public consultations isn’t wise when there is “clear public concern” over aspects of development.A big factor on these plans is the disposal of wastewater. Currently, companies either dispose of the water via sump, which has fallen out of fashion after several hazardous leaks, by truck, which proves costly and inefficient, or downhole injection, which has only ever been used on one site in the territory. A 2011 study for the journal of Geothermics studied dozens of fluid injection projects and concluded that, while data is still limited, downhole injections appear to cause low-magnitude earthquakes, while the long-term impacts are still unknown.But the ConocoPhillips plan submitted to the Sahtu Land and Water Board proposes that the company ship the toxic wastewater to Alberta. With the new regulatory changes, the company could, ostensibly, later change course and begin downhole injection and avoid assessment from the Sahtu board. Dixon says he can’t think of a situation where that would happen, saying it’s a “0.1% chance.”As of now, the future of ConocoPhillips’ project is in flux, as the Sahtu Land and Water Board has temporarily waived an environmental assessment, requesting clarification on the company’s plan. They will take time to review the project, and could opt for an environmental review later. The board could further accept or reject the project outright when they come to a decision this summer.But other companies have walked away from the process before, citing the onerous nature of the land and water boards’ review process. The Sahtu board has faced pressure to forgo the environmental review altogether.With Ottawa’s Northern plan finally move forward, that review process stands to become much less onerous. The government plans on merging all the land and water boards together, while a sizeable opposition says the changes will seriously impact the territory’s ability to oversee their own development projects. That fight is just around the corner. Aboriginal Affairs responseDear Editor,I wish to respond to an article which appeared in the May 29 edition of Aboriginal Peoples Television Network National News entitled Government strips local oversight of handling toxic waste water in the North.The resource potential of the North represents a tremendous economic opportunity not just for Northerners but for all Canadians. The federal government’s goals are clear: we want the North’s regulatory regimes to be more effective and predictable, while safeguarding the environmental health and heritage of the region, and providing meaningful Aboriginal consultation. Greater predictability, timelier reviews, reduced regulatory burden and reduced duplication are improvements that will position the North for job creation and long-term economic growth.In his article, the reporter appears to confuse the process of fracking with downhole injection. I want to be clear that these amendments do not permit hydraulic fracturing – a process that is not related to downhole injection.The use of downhole injection wells is considered common practice in Canada for the management of drill wastes and consists of disposing drill waste in conjunction with the drilling of wells for oil and gas exploration or production.Downhole injection is one of several options for the disposal of drill wastes, however prior to these amendments it was the only option subject to duplicate approvals. This amendment aims at streamlining the approval process.Finally, I want to be clear that these regulations were not developed without consultation as your article would suggest. Not only were the proposed changes distributed to Aboriginal organizations, northern boards, environmental organizations and other stakeholders, two rounds of consultations were also conducted between March 2010 and March 2011.As we indicated during those consultations, proposed oil and gas activities will continue to undergo the same rigorous environmental screening and/or assessment processes and there will be no reduction of oversight to ensure environmental risks are identified and appropriate mitigating measures taken.Paula IsaakDirector GeneralNatural Resources and Environment BranchAboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canadalast_img read more

Mamata Opposition biggies question staggered LS polls in Bengal UP and Bihar

first_imgNew Delhi: A day after the announcement of 7-phase poll dates for Lok Sabha elections, the Opposition parties questioned the Election Commission’s decision to spread Lok Sabha polls in the states of West Bengal, Bihar and Uttar Pradesh over seven phases and alleged that voting has been staggered with a view to enabling extensive electioneering by the ruling NDA’s start campaigner – Prime Minister Narendra Modi.Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Monday suggested that the long-drawn Lok Sabha election process was part of the BJP’s “gameplan to disturb” her state. Banerjee, also the state’s ruling Trinamool Congress chief, said the list of candidates of her party will be released on Tuesday. Notably, all the three states – Bihar, West Bengal and Uttar Pradesh—will witness 7-phase polling. In UP, 41 out of 80 seats (more than 50 per cent) have been squeezed into the last three stages of the election schedule, while the remaining 39 have been spread over four phases before the fasting month for Muslims start. Of them 14 will go to polls on the first day of Ramadan on May 6, another 14 on May 12 and the voting for the remaining 13 seats will be held on May 19. In West Bengal, where the BJP has been trying to gain a foothold to compensate for the possible losses in north India, polling for 42 Lok Sabha seats will be held in seven phases with 24 of them being scheduled for the last three phases (May 6, May 12 and May 19). Similarly, Bihar will see 21 out of a total of 40 seats going for polls in the last three phases during Ramadan. “It is strange that the number of phases over which voting will be held in Bihar is the same as that of the neighbouring Uttar Pradesh where the number of seats is twice as many and in West Bengal too, which has only 42 seats, polling will be held in seven phases,” RJD leader Shivanand Tiwary said.last_img read more

Republic of Korea to host first ever tobaccofree World Cup UN health

In a statement, the World Health Organization (WHO) said the decision would be formally confirmed during the visit of Han Seung-soo, the Republic of Korea’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, to the agency in Geneva. The theme of the 2002 WHO tobacco control campaign is “Tobacco-Free Sports.” In that context, the health organization is working with the Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA) and the World Cup organizing committees in making the World Cup a complete tobacco-free event. The World Cup will be co-hosted by the Republic of Korea and Japan. “The eventual aim is to make all football matches everywhere tobacco-free events: free from tobacco sales, consumption, promotion and sponsorship,” the WHO statement said. This first ever tobacco-free World Cup will join the many other tobacco-free sports events supported by WHO. The 2002 Olympics and Paralympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City will also be tobacco-free, a policy that WHO helped craft along with the International Olympic Committee (IOC). read more

Feds wont jeopardize goal of balancing books by 2019 finance minister says

Federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau listens to remarks after speaking at a Toronto Region Board of Trade Luncheon, in Toronto, on Monday, Dec. 14, 2015. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Chris Young Feds won’t jeopardize goal of balancing books by 2019, finance minister says by Alexandra Posadzki, The Canadian Press Posted Dec 14, 2015 11:46 am MDT Last Updated Dec 14, 2015 at 3:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – The federal government won’t jeopardize its goal of balancing the budget in 2019 to improve its ability to pay back the debt, Finance Minister Bill Morneau said Monday.The Liberals, who had promised to keep annual deficits under $10 billion, have recently started emphasizing instead their commitment to keep the debt-to-GDP ratio on a downward trajectory every year until the end of its mandate.Experts have said the debt-to-GDP ratio — which is calculated by dividing total federal debt by the overall size of the economy, as measured by nominal GDP — will be an easier target to meet.Some have suggested the government could run annual deficits of up to $25 billion and still meet the debt-to-GDP target, provided that the economy grows at a decent rate.The government projects the ratio will gradually fall each year from 31.1 per cent in 2015-16 to 25.2 per cent in 2020-21.Following his speech Monday before the Toronto Region Board of Trade, Morneau said the government won’t singularly focus on one of its three economic goals — to grow the economy, reduce the debt-to-GDP ratio and balance the books by the next election — at the expense of others.“We need to think of the three of them together,” he said.Morneau also announced that the government will seek advice from experts in Canada and abroad on how to boost economic growth by forming an advisory council. The group will include people who have experience growing successful economies, from both the private and public sectors, he said.He said the advisory council, which will be unveiled in the new year, will help the government figure out how to deal with the country’s longer-term economic challenges.The economy contracted over the first two quarters of 2015 and it has struggled to fully rebound following the steep slide in commodity prices and the failure of other sectors to pick up the slack.Morneau has also said that the Liberals inherited a worse-than-expected fiscal environment from the former Conservative government.Morneau, who made his remarks the week after announcing an increase to the minimum down payment for homes between $500,000 and $1 million, said he doesn’t currently have any other new measures to introduce to cool down overheated housing markets.“If and when we do we’ll certainly let people know, but for now we’d like to see how these measured approaches have an impact on those pockets of risk,” he said.Follow @alexposadzki on Twitter. read more

Buffett cant predict how negative rates will affect economy

OMAHA, Neb. – Investor Warren Buffett says he can’t predict how having interest rates negative for a prolonged period will affect the economy because it has never happened before.The billionaire from Omaha said on CNBC Monday that Berkshire Hathaway’s insurance units in Europe will lose money on the cash they have to keep in banks.He joked that Berkshire would be better off stashing cash in a giant mattress instead of banks if only he could find a trustworthy person to sleep on top of a billion euros.Buffett says he understands why regulators cut interest rates to help Europe recover, but there’s no way to know how that will affect business.Buffett released his annual letter to Berkshire shareholders over the weekend. by The Associated Press Posted Feb 29, 2016 5:50 am MDT Last Updated Feb 29, 2016 at 6:20 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Buffett can’t predict how negative rates will affect economy read more

Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi to combat AIDSrelated stigma in new

“It is a great honour to be chosen as a champion for people who live on the fringes of society and struggle every day to maintain their dignity and basic human rights. I would like to be the voice of the voiceless,” said Ms. Suu Kyi, a Member of Parliament in her native Myanmar. She accepted the invitation to serve as Global Advocate for Zero Discrimination during a recent meeting with UNAIDS’ Executive Director, Michel Sidibé, at her residence in Myanmar’s capital, Nay Pyi Taw. Ms. Suu Kyi spent nearly two decades under house arrest, before her release in November 2010. In April of this year, she was elected to the lower house of parliament during by-elections that were part of a series of democratic reforms begun last year by President Thein Sein. A strong supporter of the AIDS movement, Ms. Suu Kyi has publically engaged with people living with HIV as part of her efforts to counter stigma and discrimination, according to a news release from UNAIDS announcing her appointment.“From small villages to big cities, from Africa to Asia, people are talking about Daw Aung San Suu Kyi,” said Mr. Sidibé. “She is inspirational. We are honoured to have her as our UNAIDS Global Advocate for Zero Discrimination. I hope her example will inspire community leaders everywhere to speak out against stigma and discrimination.”The newly-appointed advocate is concerned that stigma and discrimination create an environment of fear that prevents people from accessing life-saving HIV services. “In Myanmar,” she said, “we are currently treating more than 40,000 people living with HIV. It is important that everyone who suspects they may be at risk seeks an HIV test and knows their HIV status early, so they can prevent new infections and can access life-saving treatment when needed.”Achieving zero discrimination, zero new HIV infections and zero AIDS-related deaths is the vision UNAIDS is striving to achieve. It will become a reality, according to Mr. Sidibé, if the world can revolutionize HIV prevention and mobilize young people as agents of change; scale up universal access to treatment and services; break the trajectory of treatment costs; promote innovation, technology transfer and country ownership; stop violence against women and girls; and open a frank discussion about intergenerational sex and concurrent partnership.It will also require that the vulnerable populations most affected by the epidemic – migrants, people who inject drugs, sex workers, and men who have sex with men – do not face discrimination and have access to life-saving services. read more

Nigerian President calls for global action on climate change Lake Chad crisis

“Most crises usually have a variety of festering causes and effects,” he explained.“It is the failure to address them early and effectively that lead to out-of-control conflicts,” he argued, noting that solutions include collective national and international actions.Speaking about the fight against international and local terrorism, “Boko Haram and Al Shabaab come to mind.”“Terrorist insurgencies, particularly in the Sahel and the Lake Chad Basin, are partly fueled by local factors and dynamics, but have been increasingly powered by the international Jihadi Movement, namely runaway fighters from Iraq and Syria, and arms from the disintegration of Libya,” he told the Assembly.On a brighter note, he drew inspiration from “the remarkable leadership” of Ethiopia and Eritrea to restore peace between them.According to Mr. Buhari, their “remarkable show of Statesmanship” has galvanized neighbouring countries, including Djibouti and Somalia to push for peace in the subregion.He noted that a topical consequence of global conflict is the irregular migration of affected people from the Middle East, Afghanistan and Africa to Europe.“Irregular migration entails huge avoidable loss of human lives, puts strains on services in host countries and communities, and fuels anti-immigrant and racist sentiments in Europe,” he stated.Against that backdrop, Nigeria welcomed “the successful conclusion of the negotiations on the first-ever Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration,” and look forward to its adoption in Marrakech later this year – “to protect the rights of migrants worldwide, while addressing the concerns of countries of ‘origin,’ ‘transit,’ or ‘destination’.”Calling migration “a constant in human affairs,” he stated that Africa was grateful to the countries that treated migrants with compassion and humanity, “notably Germany, Italy and France.”Mr. Buhari also cited climate change, “one of the greatest challenges of our time,” as another reason for irregular migration, noting that it has “drastically shrunk Lake Chad” and was “parching” otherwise fertile, arable lands.“The Lake was a major source of livelihood to more than 45 million inhabitants of the region,” he said, explaining that its shrinking has taken jobs, rendered people poor and vulnerable, and exposed to extremists and terrorist elements.This instability has also intensified internal displacements, leading to intense economic competition, especially between farmers and herdsmen.Mr. Buhari called for rededicated international engagement to address the root causes of conflicts in the region.“What is required is continuous and robust UN cooperation with national Governments and sub-regional and regional organizations, such as the Lake Chad Basin Commission, the Economic Community of West African States and the African Union, to enhance capacity in conflict prevention, conflict management and peace building,” the President concluded.Full statement available here. read more

President Trump sees immigration as biggest concern ahead of Midterm Elections

first_imgPresident Trump sees immigration as biggest concern ahead of Midterm Elections AP, HOUSTON (AP) — President Donald Trump escalated his immigration rhetoric at a midterm rally in Texas, falsely accusing Democrats of “encouraging millions of illegal aliens to break our laws, violate our borders and overwhelm our nation.”With weeks to go before Election Day, Trump is seeking to drive Republican turnout with his hard-line immigration policies. He cast the November choice in stark terms before the Houston rally for Republican Sen. Ted Cruz on Monday night, saying Democrats “have launched an assault on the sovereignty of our country.”Trump spoke before a massive crowd on behalf of his former foe, who faces a strong challenge from Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke. When the two competed in the 2016 Republican presidential primary, Trump would frequently deride his rival as “Lyin’ Ted” but said in Texas that their relationship had come a long way.“Nobody has helped me more with your tax cut, with your regulation,” Trump said, also attacking O’Rourke, as a “stone-cold phony.”With the midterms drawing near, Trump has emphasized immigration, targeting a migrant caravan heading to the U.S. southern border. The president’s focus on immigration politics comes as he seeks to counter Democratic enthusiasm in November. Trump believes that his campaign pledges, including his much vaunted — and still-unfulfilled — promise to quickly build a U.S.-Mexico border wall, are still rallying cries.Trump is betting that his latest focus will further erode the enthusiasm gap that began to close during the debate over Brett Kavanaugh, Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court. But the approach offers both risks and rewards.The hard-line rhetoric may be popular among the red-state rural Republicans who will play an outsized role in the top Senate contests. But it may further alienate the moderate Republicans and women in the overwhelmingly suburban races that will decide the House majority — including several in Texas, California and Florida that feature large Hispanic populations.On Monday night, Trump called the caravan an “assault on our country” and suggested, without citing evidence, that “Democrats had something to do with it.” He added: “We need a wall built fast.”Earlier Monday, Trump said the U.S. will begin “cutting off, or substantially reducing” aid to three Central American nations because of the caravan.In Texas, an enthusiastic crowd packed into Houston’s Toyota Center, wearing red Make America Great Again hats and waving signs, including some with the president’s new catchphrase, “Jobs vs. Mobs.”Speaking before Trump took the stage, Cruz made clear that their conflict was behind them and that the two were working together. His biggest applause came when he predicted that “in 2020, Donald Trump will be overwhelmingly re-elected.”A series of elected state officials were among the warmup speakers, as well as Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump and son Eric Trump, who told the audience that “we are driving the Democrats absolutely nuts.”Trump gleefully used his latest attack line against Democrats, saying, “Democrats produce mobs, Republicans produce jobs.” He declared Democrats would be a “big risk to the American family,” and went after some of his favorite targets, including Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, California Rep. Maxine Waters, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren.The president stressed tax cuts, the strong economy and the hurricane response in the state. He repeated his pledge for a new middle-income tax cut of about 10 percent, though he offered few details on the plan. Trump said they would be “putting it in” next week, though Congress is not in session.Trump also criticized so-called globalists, declaring, “You know what I am? I’m a nationalist.”Trump’s Texas stop is part of a campaign blitz that is expected to last until Election Day.Although political relationships tend to be fluid, Trump’s appearance for Cruz is notable, given that the two were bitter enemies during the 2016 primaries. After Trump insulted Cruz’s wife and father, and Cruz refused to endorse Trump at the Republican National Convention, it was far from clear that the two would ever put it all behind them.But they started rebuilding in the closing days of the campaign and have worked together since Trump took the White House.The White House views Cruz as a loyal vote for his agenda. Trump promised he would come to Texas after the Senate race grew closer than expected, with O’Rourke out-fundraising Cruz and drawing large and enthusiastic crowds around the state. Cruz, who is leading O’Rourke in the polls, said over the summer that he would welcome Trump’s support, though he has brushed off any suggestion he’d need Trump to win.During the 2016 Republican primary, Trump assailed Cruz as a liar and “dishonest politician,” insulted his wife’s appearance and promoted unsubstantiated claims that Cruz’s father had links to President John F. Kennedy’s assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald.Trump on Monday did not voice any second thoughts about labeling Cruz the son of a presidential killer, telling reporters, “I don’t regret anything.”Cruz gave back as good as he got in 2016. He savaged Trump as a “pathological liar,” an “amoral bully” and a “sniveling coward.” After Cruz lost the primary, he gave a speech at the Republican National Convention in which he did not endorse Trump and instead called on Republicans to “vote your conscience,” drawing boos from the crowd. But he announced his support about a month before Election Day — and won points in Trump’s camp for not withdrawing after the “Access Hollywood” tape was released in which Trump bragged about groping women.___Associated Press writer Steve Peoples in New York contributed to this report.

Parttime working mothers getting raw deal

first_imgWorking mothers who think of doing part-time jobs with flexible schedules are likely to end up working an increased amount of unpaid overtime, new research has found. The study, led by researchers from the University of Kent, showed that women who gained schedule control over their work had an increase in the amount of unpaid overtime worked. This was found to be the case for both professional men (about one hour more a week on average) and women without children (about 40 minutes more a week on average). Also Read – Add new books to your shelfBut, for part-time working mothers the unpaid overtime was around 20 minutes more a week. The increase may be because part-time working mothers feel the need to work longer to compensate for the possible stigma, perceived or otherwise, attached to them by other workers, especially when their schedules do not match normal working hours, the researchers said. It may also be that part-time working mothers have a greater ability to work unpaid overtime compared to full-time working mothers. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive”More control over your work is supposed to make life easier for workers, particularly those with children. However, it is clear that for many, blurring the boundaries between work and home life expands work to be longer, even when it is unpaid,” said Heejung Chung, from Kent’s School of Social Policy. “Employers need to be aware of this and ensure staff is not over-stretching themselves and undoing the benefits of flexible working,” Chung added. For the study, published in the journal Social Indicators Research, the team examined three types of flexible working that people use and how it impacted their workloads. Flexitime – where workers have set weekly hours but can work them within a schedule that suits them; Teleworking – ability to work from home for personal reasons on a regular basis; and Schedule control – where workers are able to determine their own hours and schedules, so long as the job is done. While for the first two types of flexible working, there was little evidence of an increase in unpaid overtime hours, but for those who gained schedule control over their work there was an increase in the amount of unpaid overtime.last_img read more

Aaron Rodgers shouldnt rush to resign with the Packers

first_imgAaron Rodgers shouldn’t rush to re-sign with the PackersEveryone knew that the Packers would be significantly worse without Aaron Rodgers, but in his absence, it’s become clear that Green Bay’s roster is filled with average talent. It’s more clear than ever that Rodgers has been singlehandedly keeping the Packers relevant.Colin thinks Rodgers deserves to be surrounded by better talent, and shouldn’t be in any rush to re-sign with the Packers when he’s able to opt-out of his deal after the season. Even though NFL Players have less leverage than NBA players because of the franchise tag, Rodgers has more leverage than most, and could at least force Green Bay to put players around him before agreeing to a long-term deal. Guests:Tony Gonzalez – FS1 NFL analyst is in-studio discussing if Aaron Rodgers should rush to re-sign with Green Bay; and his own experience of trying to move on from Kansas City.Michael Rappaport – Actor/Comedian is in-studio discussing his new book, This Book has Balls; why he thinks Lonzo Ball will bust; and if LeBron James is already bored with the regular season.Rob Parker – FS1 Analyst is in-studio to explain why no player in the NFL is more valuable than Aaron Rodgers; and why he doesn’t think Matt Stafford can get it done in a down NFC North. Matt Stafford needs to win the NFC North this yearColin defended Matt Stafford when he signed a massive offseason deal, but now it’s time for him to produce. With Aaron Rodgers done for the year, a rebuilding Bears team, a Vikings team with a third string quarterback, and possibly the easiest remaining NFL schedule, Stafford needs to win now.There won’t be another year in the foreseeable future where Detroit will be in a better position to win the division, and for Stafford to justify being the highest player in the league, he has to take advantage and win the North. No excuses.Also:There’s no way an undefeated Wisconsin gets left out of the playofflast_img read more

Sculpture shows San Josés black lung

first_imgAs cars honked and trucks rumbled down the road that borders the Antigua Aduana gallery and museum in the San José neighborhood of La California, environmental leaders and advocates agreed that vehicle traffic was the greatest source of air pollution in Costa Rica’s capital.On Monday morning, Environment Minister René Castro, Riteve SyC Environmental Consultant Rosario Alfaro and Riteve General Manager Fernando Mayorga presented the results from an “Urban Lung” installation, a giant wireframe sculpture designed to raise awareness about air pollution in San José. Installed on June 5, the concave, white-fabric sculpture collected particulate matter from car exhaust and other sources of air pollution for two months. Scientists from the National University’s Quality Analysis Laboratory examined the cloth — turned black from exposure to the city’s air — and discovered levels of sulfur, chlorine and manganese that exceeded safe limits determined by the World Health Organization.Alfaro told the crowd that the levels of manganese, a neurotoxin in high doses that is sometimes added to gasoline, were especially troubling.The general manager of Riteve – the Spanish-Costa Rican company in charge of mandatory technical vehicle inspections – also highlighted the organization’s progress in reducing air pollution, but noted that the emissions agency’s gains have stalled.Government environmental agencies blamed inefficient, older vehicles for the city’s air pollution. According to Alfaro, 70 percent of the city’s air pollution is created by 50 percent of vehicles, which are over 15 years old.In response to the environmental effects of the aging fleet, Castro announced that operating permits for taxis and buses over 10 years old will not be renewed. Public transportation vehicles exceeding 10 years will need to convert to cleaner fuel sources, like natural gas, or transition to hybrid or electric models under the new guidelines. Banco Costa Rica and Banco Nacional will offer bus and taxi drivers credit at under 5 percent to finance the upgrade thanks to a $200 million donation from China, Japan and South Korea, according to a press released from MINAE. In July, the Finance, Public Works and Transport and Environment ministries signed an agreement dropping the sales tax on hybrid vehicles to 10 percent from 30 percent. Besides incentivizing sales, the decree orders government ministries to modernize their fleets by purchasing vehicles that use hybrid technology or alternative fuels like natural gas or electric models.Some doubted the government’s commitment to reducing pollution from older vehicles, as the news came on the heels of the Finance Ministry’s decision to reduce taxes on used imported cars.“Sustainability means balancing the social with the economy and the environment,” Castro said.Costa Rican sculptor Francesco Bracci told The Tico Times that the piece was motivated, in part, by the white face masks that have become recognizable symbols of urban air pollution in many developing countries.Latin America registers the highest rates of urbanization in the world, according to the World Bank, heightening the need to address urban air pollution.“The rest of Central America needs to catch up,” Castro said, referring to the isthmus’ otherwise lax air pollution laws. “It’s obvious that improving health coincides with these changes.”             Update Tuesday, 12:35 p.m.: This post was updated to include more information on the efforts to finance the upgrade to the public transportation fleet.

Kidder was also a v

Kidder was also a vocal advocate for mental health. comfort. rolled down his window and yelled “F— you faggot” Dozens of other people have reported similar stories around the country since the election like a woman in Arkansas who found a note taped to her door: “Trump says get back in the closet fags” As President-elect Donald Trump adds people to his team who have records of opposing LGBT rights uncertainty and fear are plaguing a community that experienced enormous progress under President Obama But there is one election result that is giving them hope On Monday Republican North Carolina Gov Pat McCrory conceded a tight election to Democrat Roy Cooper in a contest that wasmore than any other high-profile race this yeara referendum on LGBT issues “The only place where transgender people were on the ballot this year was North Carolina” says Keisling executive director of the National Center for Transgender Equality “And we won” At the center of the fight was HB2 a controversial measure often called “the bathroom law” because it banned transgender people from using certain public restrooms in addition to banning cities from passing non-discrimination measures that explicitly protect LGBT people Since its passage in March the law has been contested in multiple lawsuitsincluding one from the federal government months of protests and boycotts that are estimated to represent hundreds of millions in lost revenue Corporations pulled jobs and promised not to bring their business to the state in the future as influencers ranging from Bruce Springsteen to the NBA canceled plans to hold events in the state Yet unlike other Republican governors who were put under similar pressure over bathroom-related bills in 2016 McCrory refused to budge using that blowback to position himself as a steadfast champion of social conservative values as he sought reelection Cooper the state’s attorney general refused to defend the law and made his opposition to it a central part of his campaign “It writes discrimination into our law” Cooper alleged repeatedly pushing for its repeal The election was closecoming down to about 10000 votes after a recountbut the win upset several tides in a year that clearly went to Republicans Trump carried the state by three points No other sitting governor in the country lost reelection and no sitting governor in North Carolina previously had since 1971 when the state began allowing them to serve two terms In exit polls the economy topped North Carolina voters’ concerns and about two-thirds said they opposed the law According to research commissioned by the Human Rights Campaign an LGBT rights group 57 percent of voters said HB2 was the top reason "not to vote for Pat McCrory" “That’s a strong signal for the rest of the nation” says Jay Brown a spokesperson for the Human Rights Campaign “Its not a recipe for success to single out anybody when youre a lawmaker Voters saw a law passed unfairly targeting a group of people and they rejected that kind of lawmaking” In the days after the election some have alleged that identity politics and support for sexual and gender minorities in particular is to blame for the Democratic Party’s downfall As a Columbia University professor wrote in the New York Times “To paraphrase Bernie Sanders America is sick and tired of hearing about liberals damn bathrooms” While liberals have widely embraced transgender rights in recent years advocates point out that they’ve been playing defense rather than offense on the issue Political fights over bathrooms have largely been picked by social conservatives many upset that they lost the fight over same-sex marriage and some riled by the increasing visibility of transgender people (One South Dakota lawmaker who supported a similar measure which was ultimately vetoed likened it to “a virus that has broken out”) Advocacy groups repeatedly described HB2 as a “solution for a problem that doesn’t exist” noting that transgender people have not caused problems in many states and cities where non-discrimination laws have long protected their right to use the public bathrooms that align with their sense of self “Were the last ones who wanted to fight a battle over restrooms” says Shannon Minter the legal director at the National Center for Lesbian Rights and a transgender man He sees the results of the gubernatorial election as proof that “its not a fight any of us should be having to waste time and energy on” Says Keisling of such measures “Thats not a pushback on identity politics that actually is identity politics” While it’s unclear whether Cooper’s win could lead to an actual repeal of the law given that Republicans continue to control the legislature advocates believe that there’s power in the narrative as a cautionary tale for other conservative legislatures that will almost certainly consider similar measures in the coming months “This is not an issue voters want to see their elected officials prioritize” says Matt McTighe executive director of Freedom For All Americans an organization dedicated to passing non-discrimination protections Elections that will take place in the state next year after court-mandated redistricting may also give Democrats more of an edge Trump himself has said things that appear to express sympathy withor at least a lack of antipathy againstthe community In an interview during the race he said transgender people should use “whatever bathroom they feel is appropriate” and applauded the audience at the Republican National Convention for cheering when he said he would protect the LGBT community But Cabinet picks such as Alabama Sen Jeff Sessions who Trump has made his pick for attorney general are making some LGBT people nervous He voted against the repeal of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” and supported a constitutional ban of same-sex marriage And some protections LGBT people currently have at the federal level are only in place by executive order which advocates worry Trump will be pressured to change The Human Rights Campaign says their site got more traffic on the day after the electionwith anxious people trying to find out what legal changes might be comingthan the day that the Supreme Court upheld marriage equality “We really don’t know what’s going to happen” says Keisling “But we did not come this far to only come this far even if it gets as bad as it could” Write to Katy Steinmetz at katysteinmetz@timecom described the development as unfortunate, and God doesn’t make mistakes, Because of so many of our current
