Former prime ministers gather in Commons to mark Parliaments 150th anniversary

first_imgOTTAWA – Moments from Canada’s colourful — and sometimes dark — past came back into focus Monday as federal politicians and former prime ministers of all partisan stripes gathered in the House of Commons to mark the 150th anniversary of Canada’s first Parliament.House of Commons Speaker Geoff Regan encouraged current members of Parliament to imagine what it was like on Nov. 6, 1867, when the country’s first lawmakers gathered in Ottawa.“Imagine the enormity of the task before these first parliamentarians … facing the monumental challenge of governing a vast and sprawling country still in its infancy,” Regan told the Commons.“Any democracy worthy of its name is always a work in progress, and it is our duty as parliamentarians to build on the foundations laid by those first members of Parliament who established the country that it is our privilege to serve.”Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reminded former and current parliamentarians of several noted events since that time — both good and bad — that have shaped Canada into what it is today.“Within these walls, Canada has been reborn countless times,” Trudeau said as he recalled how previous governments made strides in human rights, introduced universal health care, abolished the death penalty and gave same-sex couples the right to marry.The prime minister also acknowledged some “dark and shameful moments” in Canada’s history, such as the introduction of the residential schools program that aimed to assimilate Canada’s Indigenous Peoples.“Let us be women and men of principle and of humility, for we have been bestowed the responsibility to serve and we must do so honourably,” Trudeau said.“Let’s never lose sight of the fact that we’re all here for the same reason, to make our country better, to improve the lives of the people were serve. We may have different ideas on how to get there, but there is always common ground — and if we work together, we will find it.”Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer called the Parliament of Canada much more than merely bricks and mortar. And while Scheer also acknowledged some dark moments in Canada’s past, he said there were more good moments than bad over the last 150 years, culminating in a country that is the envy of the world.“That we who have been entrusted with the governance of Canada have sometimes failed should not be surprising,” said Scheer.“This chamber may be made of wood and stone but the men and women who give it its life are hewn from the crooked timber of humanity…. These chairs have supported patriots and heroes, but also a few rogues.”Former prime ministers John Turner, Joe Clark, Brian Mulroney and Paul Martin were among those who watched and listened from the Commons visitor’s gallery as tributes were read into the official record to mark the anniversary. Earlier in the day, the four men sat together and shared a few memories with Regan and former Commons speakers as they celebrated the moment.“This room is not about us as members of Parliament; this room is about democracy, it is about Canada,” said Green party Leader Elizabeth May. “We are very tiny in this space because our role is to represent something far bigger than ourselves. We are here for Canada.”last_img read more

America Ferrera Takes A Stand On International Womens Day

first_imgAmerica Ferrera has taken a stand on International Women’s Day.“Today, on International Women’s Day, there’s a lot we can be proud of when it comes to advancing rights and opportunities for women and girls everywhere,” wrote Ferrera in an email to supporters of the Clinton Foundation. “But the truth is, we still have so much more to do. Take the fact that women around the world still don’t have equal pay, or that nine countries around the world don’t provide for paid maternity leave.“When you look at the facts, you have to ask yourself: Where do we really stand when it comes to gender equality? The answer is: We’re just not there yet.“In a symbolic act, the Clinton Foundation, and a multitude of partners are temporarily removing women from images we see every day to show that we’re not there yet on gender equality. I’m taking a stand with them and you can too.”Yesterday, March 8, was International Women’s Day, and the Clinton Foundation’s No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project engaged in a collaborative effort to raise awareness that women are “not there” yet on issues of gender equality. For the entire day, the media landscape was eerily devoid of women, and the public was directed to to learn why.“We are taking a collective stand that full participation for women and girls anywhere and everywhere remains the unfinished business of the 21st century,” said Clinton Foundation Vice Chair Chelsea Clinton. “By knowing the facts and what has worked and hasn’t worked to advance gender equality, we can accelerate the pace of change for women and girls — both at home and around the world.”NOT THERE, which was created in collaboration with award-winning agency Droga5, coincides with the release of the No Ceilings Full Participation Report, a 20-year data driven review on the status of women and girls since 1995, when Secretary Clinton called on the international community to ensure that “women’s rights are human rights.” At viewers are able to see the facts on gender equality in full focus and are encouraged to learn more and explore the interactive series of data visualizations created by No Ceilings.Condé Nast, for the first time in history, removed the cover images on Vogue, Glamour, SELF, Allure, Teen Vogue, W, and Brides and directed readers to to learn about gender equality. On Clear Channel Outdoor’s Times Square billboard, the largest digital ad display in North America, Beats by Dre removed images of women and directed tourists from around the world to visit Invaluable advertisements from Unilever brands Dove and TRESemmé, Under Armour, kate spade new york, the New York City Ballet, and many more removed women and directed audiences to Additionally, the NOT THERE campaign and No Ceilings data was featured in Snapchat’s newly launched “Discover” platform as a day-long takeover of Snapchat’s “Snap Channel.” And, iHeartMedia radio stations across the country launched an on-air NOT THERE campaign that played clips by iconic female artists – sans the female vocal track.“I think sometimes the media gives the false impression, through its visual imagery, that women are treated equally in the global conversation. It is important for us to correct that impression, even symbolically on March 8, to move the conversation forward and create real change,” said Anna Wintour, Artistic Director of Condé Nast and Editor-in-Chief of Vogue.Once on, visitors are greeted by the voices of Amy Poehler, Cameron Diaz, Jenny Slate, Padma Lakshmi, and Sienna Miller, who came together in a sharable video to inspire Americans to learn the facts on gender equality and inspire action on a global scale.last_img read more

Cellphone users want 50 cap on international data roaming fees study says

Almost 90% of consumers want their wireless carriers to halt their data use abroad when they’ve spent a maximum of $50 on international data roaming fees, says a new study.Trying to calculate megabytes of data used while outside Canada can leave consumers confused and with cellphone bill shock, the Public Interest Advocacy Centre said Monday.“Consumers understand dollar limits in terms of how much it’s going to look like on my bill when I get back from vacation or travel,” said Janet Lo, legal counsel for the consumer advocacy group.We’re really trying to prevent this scenario where a consumer comes home and gets their bill and it’s much higher than they had expectedThe survey also found that about 90% of consumers said they had received a bill that was much higher than expected for international data roaming, which includes emailing, texting, using maps or other applications or surfing the Internet on their devices.“We’re really trying to prevent this scenario where a consumer comes home and gets their bill and it’s much higher than they had expected,” Lo said from Ottawa.Major wireless carriers such as Telus, Bell and Rogers said they already advise their customers via text message of international roaming rates on their cellphones and send notifications when consumers have hit certain megabyte limits for data usage.“A dollar limit would give consumers that control they really seek,” said Lo, adding that’s how data roaming is calculated in Europe.Lo noted that 44% of those surveyed prefer to leave their device turned off when they travel, while 16% left it at home.The CRTC could include how wireless carriers notify customers of international roaming rates in its new wireless code of conduct, she added.“We’re looking for consistent practices between all wireless carriers.”The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission is developing a national code of conduct for wireless carriers. The goal is to have consumers better understand their rights and wireless companies know their responsibilities.The commission is expected to issue a draft code by the end of next month, after which a second round of online consultations will be launched. Public hearings are set to begin in February.Telus spokeswoman Donna Ramirez said Telus already gives its customers notifications about how much data is being used when they’re outside the country.“We automatically give customers the lowest pay-per-used rates when they’re travelling abroad,” she said.Telus’s customers are notified when they use 10 megabytes of data and are asked if they want to continue using data, Ramirez said.Ten megabytes of data would allow a cellphone user to, for example, download to two songs, do some emailing and pull up a couple of web pages.“We can all be doing much more from an education perspective to be helping customers understand what happens when they’re roaming,” Ramirez said from Toronto.Bell spokesman Jason Laszlo said Bell has been sending travelling customers a text message advising of local roaming rates since 2009.“To ensure customers don’t come home to a larger than expected bill, upon reaching 100 MB of usage, data roaming service is suspended and can be restored either at the customer’s request or automatically after 30 days from the start of their data roaming,” Laszlo said.This service has included customers travelling to the United States since the spring, he added.Rogers said it agrees with the Public Interest Advocacy Centre that international roaming should be affordable.“We notify customers the moment they enter a roaming zone by sending them a text message which outlines the cost of pay-per use roaming and provides the option to purchase packages,” spokeswoman Patricia Trott said.In 2011, Canadians were paying some of the highest prices in the world for wireless data service while away from their home turf, suggesting there isn’t enough competition in this country, said a report by the Organization for Economic Development and Co-operation.The Canadian Press read more

New battle for Leonidas

first_imgThe erection of the statue of  ancient Spartan King Leonidas on Sparta Place in Brunswick has caused an uproar with some local traders in Brunswick. The statue that was created in Greece by sculptor Petros Georgariou, is already on its way to Australia, and its unveiling will take place at the end of November. The cities of Sparta, Greece and Moreland are sister cities and the placement of the statue is part of this relationship. The street had been renamed Sparta Place back in 1987 to commemorate the beginning of the sister cities’ relationship. In a report published in The Age last week local traders raised various concerns and objections regarding the statue. One of them was the cost of the undertaking. The City of Moreland is funding most of the cost at $20,000 with the prefecture of Laconia in Greece and the Pallaconian Brotherhood of Melbourne Victoria Leonidas, covering the rest of the cost including transportation and the construction of the statue’s base estimated at over $10,000. The city, however, has already paid $60,000 for another artwork that is featured on Sparta Place. The artwork is comprised of five different columns of steel construction about 4 metres high that finish off with a classical Greek column detail and include a myriad of pots and pans. The artwork, named New Order, was commissioned to represent the historical past of Brunswick with its pronounced Greek presence while adjoining its urban present.Traders also object to the fact that they were not engaged in a consultation process by the Council. The Mayor of Moreland, Cr Lambros Tapinos, explained to Neos Kosmos English Edition (NKEE) that the traders had been informed despite the fact that the city was not obligated to do so. “From the first moment that the two cities became sister cities it was always discussed and the idea of having a bust of King Leonidas was always on the agenda. Unfortunately, it hasn’t happened sooner but certainly the Pallaconian community group has been waiting for this for over 20 years,” Cr Tapinos emphasised.As for the current situation Cr Tapinos was categorical that the traders were aware of the City’s plans to erect the statue. “It is a fact that for the selection of the other artwork that is displayed on Sparta Place they [traders] had a more active participation but that selection had not gone through a City Council meeting decision, which is something occurred with the statue of Leonidas,” Cr Tapinos clarified.One of the traders who had taken part in the committee for the election of the New Order artwork was Mariana Hardwick who is opposing the erection of the King Leonidas statue. But she stressed to NKEE that she had opposed the New Order artwork as well. Mariana Hardwick who owns a well known wedding gown couture business prides herself as the person who was instrumental behind the recent revitalisation of Sparta Place.“….[my objections] have nothing to do with the statue or whether it is Greek, or Italian, or Middle Eastern, it has to do with the fact that what we want in the precinct is more public amenities and what we keep getting is statues,” Mrs Hardwick said. She insisted that the selection of the New Order artwork was not what she had asked for and rushed to add that what she would like to see happening in Sparta Place is some sort of a garden, vegetation or a water feature. The Mayor of Moreland responded by saying that trees have already been planted in Sparta Place and that the lack of sunlight makes Sparta Place an inappropriate space for a garden. He also underscored that water features in “times of water restrictions are not the best message to send to the community.”Another trader, Tamara Veltre said to NKEE that she does not oppose the erection of the King Leonidas statue on Sparta Place but merely believes that the spot that has been chosen will not do the statue any justice. “I just want to make it clear that we have absolutely no objection to King Leonidas, he is a symbol of courage against overwhelming odds, but we’re objecting basically to the location which we think is ill considered and we’re objecting that there’s been lack of due process by the Council,” Mrs Vletre said.

Cloned Monkey Babies Will Melt Your Heart

first_imgStay on target CRISPR-Modified Babies Cursed With Short LifespanAntidote to Deadly Box Jellyfish Venom Discovered In 1996, scientists at the University of Edinburgh’s Roslin Institute successfully cloned a female domestic sheep using nuclear transfer.More than 20 years later, the first primate clones made by somatic cell nuclear transfer were born. And they’re adorable.Zhong Zhong and Hua Hua, genetically identical long-tailed macaques, were hatched six and eight weeks ago, respectively, at the Chinese Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Neuroscience (ION).Named after the adjective “Zhōnghuá,” which refers to the Chinese nation or people, the wee siblings help usher in a new era of research with customizable populations of genetically uniform monkeys.“There are a lot of questions about primate biology that can be studied by having this additional model,” lead researcher Sun Qiang, director of the Non-human Primate Facility at ION, said in a statement.“This will generate real models,” he continued. “Not just for genetically based brain diseases, but also cancer [and] immune or metabolic disorders, and allow us to test the efficacy of the drugs for these conditions before clinical use.”The technical milestone was published this week in the journal Cell.Zhong Zhong and Hua Hua are not the first primate clones. That honor goes to Tetra, a rhesus monkey made in 1999 using the simpler method of embryo splitting (which is how human twins are formed).The more complex somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT)—used nearly 22 years ago to create Dolly the sheep—requires researchers to remove the nucleus from an egg cell and replace it with another nucleus from differentiated body cells. The reconstructed egg then develops into a clone of whatever donated the replacement nucleus.“The SCNT procedure is rather delicate, so the faster you do it the less damage to the egg you have,” according to project supervisor Muming Poo, director of the Academy’s Center for Excellence in Brain Science and Intelligence Technology. “It takes a lot of practice; not everybody can do the enucleation and cell fusion process quickly and precisely, and it is likely that the optimization of transfer procedure greatly helped us to achieve this success.”Unlike other mammals like mice or dogs, monkey cells have proven resistant to SCNT. Until Sun & Co. introduced epigenetic modulators, which turn on or off the genes that inhibit embryo development.Success also hinged on the age of donor cells: Zhong Zhong and Hua Hua are clones of the same macaque fetal fibroblasts; cells from adult primates resulted in death only a few hours after birth.“We tried several different methods but only one worked,” Sun said. “There was much failure before we found a way to successfully clone a monkey.”Researchers plan to continue improving their technique, while monitoring Zhong Zhong and Hua Hua (who may have more cloned macaque friends soon!) for physical and intellectual development. Currently bottle fed, the babies are growing normally compared to others their age.(I’ve inquired about more photos/videos of the furry munchkins.

Physics team entangles photons that never coexisted in time Besides offering a way to create sharper images, the new technique might also prove useful for looking at material that is easily damaged by strong light—it might also lend itself to other types of measuring devices such as interferometers. © 2014 More information: An entanglement-enhanced microscope, Nature Communications 4, Article number: 2426 DOI: 10.1038/ncomms3426 . On Arxiv: the applications of optical phase measurement, the differential interference contrast microscope is widely used for the evaluation of opaque materials or biological tissues. However, the signal-to-noise ratio for a given light intensity is limited by the standard quantum limit, which is critical for measurements where the probe light intensity is limited to avoid damaging the sample. The standard quantum limit can only be beaten by using N quantum correlated particles, with an improvement factor of √N. Here we report the demonstration of an entanglement-enhanced microscope, which is a confocal-type differential interference contrast microscope where an entangled photon pair (N=2) source is used for illumination. An image of a Q shape carved in relief on the glass surface is obtained with better visibility than with a classical light source. The signal-to-noise ratio is 1.35±0.12 times better than that limited by the standard quantum limit.center_img Explore further Journal information: Nature Communications (a) Atomic force microscope (AFM) image of a glass plate sample (BK7) on whose surface a ‘Q’ shape is carved in relief with an ultra-thin step using optical lithography.

Credit: Scientists have been using a type of microscope that relies on reading information from pairs of photons reflected off of a surface for several years. The difference between the information provided by each of the photons (the difference in phase) allows for creating an image. The result is stunningly sharp ultra-close-up images of three dimensional surfaces (such as microchips or microorganisms). Until now, however, the resolution of this type of microscopy—known as differential interference contrast microscopy—has been limited by the standard quantum limit—which is based on the Heisenberg uncertainty principle. Scientists have also known for some time that if entangled photons were used instead, they could bypass that limit and create images with better resolution. In this new effort, that’s exactly what the researchers have done.The reason that using entangled photons allow for more information is because measuring one gives information about the other, which results in more information obtained than from two un-entangled photons. The researchers tested this theory by replacing the part of the microscope that emits photons, with one that emitted entangled photons—with it in place they etched the letter “Q” into a glass plate and then proceeded to create an image of it using their new and improved microscope. In so doing, they found an improved signal to noise ratio of 1.35—which can be seen by the naked eye when comparing photographs of the same etching done by both the new and old method. (—A team of researchers with members from Hokkaido and Osaka Universities in Japan has used quantum entanglement of photons to improve image results created using differential interference contrast microscopy. In their paper published in Nature Communications, the team describes how they used entangled photons to enhance an image taken of an etched (to a depth of just 17 nanometers) letter “Q” on a glass plate, and how much improvement was observed.last_img read more

The Creator of the Worlds First PopUp Ad Apologizes for Everything

first_img Hear from Polar Explorers, ultra marathoners, authors, artists and a range of other unique personalities to better understand the traits that make excellence possible. 2 min read Pop-up ads are, at best, a nuisance or, at worst, delivery systems for corrupting viruses that have signaled many a hard drive’s demise. In reflecting on the Internet’s 25th anniversary, Ethan Zuckerman, the creator of the code behind the very first pop-up ad, wants to say that he’s sorry.   Zuckerman, the director of MIT’s Center for Civic Media penned an essay for The Atlantic on how advertising became the web’s predominant business model, and what that means for internet users today, especially when it comes to privacy.Related: OkCupid Founder: ‘If You Use the Internet, You’re the Subject of Hundreds of Experiments’Zuckerman writes the idea for the pop-up ad came about while he was working for the web-hosting service in the mid-90s. “The model that got us acquired was analyzing users’ personal homepages so we could better target ads to them. Along the way, we ended up creating one of the most hated tools in the advertiser’s toolkit: the pop-up ad.””It was a way to associate an ad with a user’s page without putting it directly on the page, which advertisers worried would imply an association between their brand and the page’s content. Specifically, we came up with it when a major car company freaked out that they’d bought a banner ad on a page that celebrated anal sex. I wrote the code to launch the window and run an ad in it. I’m sorry. Our intentions were good.”Related: How to Stop Google From Using Your Name and Face in AdsZuckerman argues that while an ad-supported Internet lowers financial barrier to entry, making it possible for platforms like Facebook and Twitter to build the sizable communities they have now, he sees the model as inherently broken. His suggestion is to move more widely towards a subscription model that would encourage people to pay to use the sites they love, while taking targeted data collection and surveillance out of the equation.Tell us: Do you think Zuckerman is on the right track?

Many were wailing and crying as they inched forward through the narrow road.Singh said the stampede occurred when the gates leading to the spiritual leader’s house were closed at about 1 a.m. The crowds surged forward, with many people getting crushed near the gates and with no way to escape.Singh acknowledged that crowd management around the Syedna’s home was poor and said police at the scene were badly outnumbered by the huge number of mourners.“We didn’t think the crowd would be so great,” Singh said. “Also, it’s an emotional occasion when police cannot take harsh measures to push back the crowd.”The Syedna had succeeded his father in 1965 and led the community for nearly five decades. He was well known as a promoter of education and spiritual values in his community.Tens of thousands of Dawoodi Bohra Muslims from all over India and several other countries headed to Mumbai for his funeral later Saturday.Across Mumbai, shops and businesses owned by Bohra Muslims were closed Saturday in homage to their leader.
