Grand Council in Akwesasne taking different path to resolve cannabis issues

first_imgDanielle RochetteAPTN NewsThe council of Akwesasne has decided to take another path towards settling its issues with cannabis stores in the community.This was the decision after two police raids split the community.The stores were raided because they didn’t have a license from the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne, but instead, they were licensed by a group called the Indian Way Longhouse.Now, despite the different perspectives on the issue, ongoing efforts are being made to encourage a peaceful solution.“We have since been in conversation with various representatives of the community into discuss what a more fullsome collective process would look like for the ongoing development of a framework regulatory for our community to be able to regulate and license the cannabis industry within Akwesasne,” said Abraham Benedict, grand chief of the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne.Roger Jock Kanerahtiio has been sitting on the men’s council for 13 years in the Indian Way Longhouse.As one of the representatives of the Longhouse, he denounced the interference of the Akwesasne Mohawk police and other non-Mohawk police on the Cannabis dispensaries.“Two times they were robbed,” he said. “Two times they were set back but they open the next day.“We do not live in a dictatorship we are Onkwehonweh and Onkwehonweh they are free.”Kanerahtiio says that things can be turned around in a positive way.“Communication is the most important thing and I think by working to come to peaceful understanding because basically I see that we can do that without having to say he won or we won or they won you know the people has got to win,” he said.Kanerahtiio is also hoping that the police will cooperate to the ongoing discussions.“I hope we do not see the aggression of the police again I really hope that they see that we are working it out and they need to stay out of the business as we know tensions get high really quick.”There is one thing that everybody agrees on – that some aspects of the cannabis business are good.“We want to create jobs in our community, we want to have small businesses,” said Abraham. “We want to have an economy that supporting our community as well as having a collective benefit for everybody it is just a matter of getting through the framework what the framework will look like.”[email protected]@danfromestlast_img read more

Hand shakes

Her daughter, Yashasvini, an upcoming Kuchipudi dancer, was also part of the performance.The classical repertoire portrayed different elements of Krishna-leela through Kuchipudi. The performance started with an invocation of Lord Venkateswara. This was followed by a rendition on Mere Saason ki Maala (a Meera Bai bhajan popularised by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan) fused with sufi and Hindustani music.  It was followed by Thillana – a traditional Kuchipudi Nritya item.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The third part of the performance was Madhushala –  a unique performance on the poem by the famed Late Harivansh Rai Bachchan.The evening ended with Tarangam in which Jindal performed on the edges of a brass plate in devotion to Lord Krishna. This item displayed an exquisite virtuosity as the dancer executes intricate footwork patterns by dancing on the rim of a brass plate and coordinates them with complicated rhythmic patterns. It is said to be the union of the Atma (soul) with the Parmatma (Almighty).last_img read more

OK Explorers A New Version of Google Glass Is Coming Next Year

first_img Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Lately, things haven’t been looking so hot for Google Glass. Reports say early developers and explorers are becoming disenchanted with the device. Then there was Google’s decision to shut down its physical Glass stores.But now comes word that far from easing off the brakes on Glass, Google is revving up its efforts. A new version of the device will be released sometime next year, the Wall Street Journal reports. The upgraded device will replace the current version’s Texas Instruments Inc. processor with an Intel chip, and it will apparently boast improved battery life.Related: The Future of Google Glass Is Looking a Little CloudyWhile people “familiar with the matter” told the Journal that Intel plans to heavily promote Glass for use in the workplace — notably hospital networks and manufacturers — Google appears to be holding out hope that Glass can still reach a wider user base. The large majority of the more than 300 Google employees working on Glass are focusing on its uses for consumers, not its applications in the workplace, the Journal says.“We expect Glass to evolve and be more useful for companies, but it will still be a crossover device for consumers,” Eric Johnsen, a former Google employee who worked on the Google’s Glass at Work program, told the outlet.No word yet on price. Right now, Glass retails for $1,500, which has been considered a barrier for more widespread adoption.Related: Apparently You Can Become Addicted to Google Glass 2 min read December 1, 2014 Register Now »last_img read more
