Former SNC executive has obstruction charge dropped because of excessive delays

first_imgMONTREAL — A former SNC-Lavalin executive and his lawyer have had obstruction of justice charges against them stayed on the grounds that it took too long to bring the case to trial.The engineering company’s former executive vice-president Sami Bebawi and his lawyer, Constantine Kyres, were initially charged with obstruction in 2014.A stay of proceedings was issued in February 2018 after evidence was ruled inadmissible, but the charges were reinstated by direct indictment last May.The defendants invoked the Supreme Court of Canada’s 2016 Jordan decision, which set limits on how long a criminal cases can take, and a judge agreed today.Bebawi is still facing charges including fraud and bribery of a public official in relation to SNC-Lavalin’s dealings with the regime of the late Libyan dictator, Moammar Gadhafi.That case stems from the same Project Assistance investigation that led to charges against SNC-Lavalin. Those charges continue to fuel controversy in Ottawa following a report that the Prime Minister’s Office pressured former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould to help the company avoid criminal prosecution.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Lankan woman in Dubai says she was forced into prostitution

She told him she needed a job and he said he could find her one that paid well. Three men – TE, a 27-year-old from Pakistan, and the two 27-year-old Bangladeshis TA and MR – were charged with human trafficking, kidnap, running a brothel, and benefiting from prostitution.The Pakistani denied the charges, while the two Bangladeshis were not present in court. The next hearing was scheduled for October 18. He then took her to an apartment in Naif, Dubai, where she met two women who were working willingly as prostitutes. “They told me they were paid Dh15 for each time they had sex with a customer,” said the maid. When she refused to prostitute herself, she was beaten by the three men who ran the brothel, so she gave into their demands.A police raid on the apartment in June resulted in the arrest of the three men. Two prostitutes were also arrested. AF, a 40-year-old policeman, told the court that the men had been running the brothel for the past 20 months. A Sri Lankan woman in Dubai has told a local court that she was kidnapped by a man she met at a bus stop before being locked up in a brothel and forced to prostitute herself for Dh15 per customer.The National newspaper said that the woman identified only as SM, a 27-year-old Sri Lankan maid, told prosecutors that she arrived in Abu Dhabi in March 2011 but absconded from her sponsor’s house about a year later and went to meet her sisters in Sharjah. While she was waiting for them at the bus station a man approached her and began chatting. read more

Taxe carbone Bruxelles présente un nouveau projet

first_imgTaxe carbone : Bruxelles présente un nouveau projetAlors que le sujet divise les pays européens, Bruxelles évoque à nouveau la question d’une fiscalité visant à taxer les énergies les plus polluantes. La Commission européenne a en effet présenté un projet qui devrait permettre à l’UE d’atteindre une réduction de 20% de ses gaz à effet de serre, tout en engendrant des milliards d’euros de bénéfices.L’année dernière, la France avait renoncé à l’instauration d’une taxe carbone, l’un des points phares du Grenelle de l’Environnement, préférant attendre la création d’une fiscalité européenne. Mais d’autres pays ont fait le choix de ne pas attendre. C’est notamment le cas du Royaume-Uni, du Danemark, de la Finlande et de la Suède. Et si l’incapacité des 27 à se mettre d’accord sur une taxe carbone européenne avait contraint la Commission à reporter le projet, elle vient de le relancer en proposant un nouveau texte.À lire aussiLa fusion nucléaire pourrait bien devenir prochainement une réalitéComme le rapporte Romandie, le document présenté par Bruxelles propose une taxation reposant sur deux composantes : les émissions de CO2, dont le prix est fixé à 20 euros la tonne, et le contenu énergétique, fixé à 9,6 euros par gigajoule pour les carburants et à 15 centimes d’euro pour les combustibles. Un tel système devrait faire passer la taxe minimum pour le gazole de 330 euros pour 1.000 litres à 412 euros en 2018. Celle de l’essence resterait identique, à 359 euros par 1.000 litres. Les sources d’énergie issues de la biomasse, telles que le bioéthanol ou le biodiesel seraient alors taxées à un taux réduit et exemptées de la taxe carbone.Ces mesures devraient être appliquées aux secteurs de l’agriculture, du bâtiment et des transports, tandis que les professionnels de la mer devraient y échapper. Si les Etats membres parviennent à se mettre d’accord, le système pourrait être totalement opérationnel en 2023. Il pourrait alors permettre de réduire de 92 millions de tonnes par an les émissions de CO2. Quant aux recettes engendrées par cette fiscalité verte, elles “pourraient permettre de réduire les cotisations sociales et créer un million d’emplois pour 2030″, a affirmé le commissaire en charge de la Fiscalité, Algirdas Semeta.”Nous voulons encourager l’utilisation d’énergies plus propres, nous voulons aider les biocarburants et nous voulons réduire la dépendance créée par les importants volumes de diesel (gazole) importés”, a-t-il souligné. “La proposition est équilibrée et elle prévoit une période de transition de douze ans suffisante pour s’adapter”, a de son côté assuré le président de la Commission européenne, José Manuel Barroso.Le 15 avril 2011 à 17:55 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Conference focuses on affordable housing for people with disabilities

first_imgWhat happens to Michael when I die? What happens if I’m in a car accident?These are the questions Monica Meyer started asking herself years ago about her son Michael McCormick. He has autism and epilepsy. He can set up a VCR but can’t cook a meal or test water to make sure it’s not too hot.McCormick, 35, lives on the top floor of a home that’s been converted into two apartments with separate entrances. Meyer wants to see her son grow, have experiences and learn to live a life separate from Mom.“I’m not going to be here for the rest of his life,” she said.Meyer’s concerns and other issues around housing were the basis of a conference on affordable housing for people with disabilities held Monday at the Heathman Lodge in Vancouver by Parents Empowered and Communities Enhanced, otherwise known as PEACE.“Whether your child has a developmental disability or not, we’re anxious about how their lives are going to turn out and what it’s going to be like for them when we’re not around anymore,” said keynote speaker George Braddock, president of Creative Housing Solutions and an expert on designing homes for people with disabilities. “When we have a child with a disability, the conversation is more pointed. And I think it causes us to be more thoughtful and more concerned about what’s going to happen.”Meyer was a panelist at Monday’s conference. She talked to attendees about planning far in advance for her son’s future. When he was 12, she started talking about housing with a group of people.last_img read more

AntiTrump protesters head to Washington

first_imgHundreds of thousands of people are expected to attend Donald Trump’s inauguration, but hundreds of thousands of protesters are also expected in Washington next week to vent their frustration over his election win.Demonstrations are scheduled across the United States, but the focal point of anti-Trump ire will be in the nation’s capital, where a small minority—several thousand—have pledged to disrupt the January 20 inauguration ceremony.The main protest will come the following day at 10:00 am (1500 GMT) — the Women’s March on Washington, which is backed by celebrity A-list participants including Katy Perry, Julianne Moore, Cher and Scarlett Johansson.It all began with a simple Facebook post from Hawaii grandmother and retired lawyer Teresa Shook to about 40 of her friends.Word traveled quickly, and eventually made it to the pro-Hillary Clinton Facebook group Pantsuit Nation, which has nearly four million members.Now, nearly 190,000 people have said on Facebook they will attend. Another 250,000 said they were interested.“We expect elected leaders to act to protect the rights of women, their families and their communities,” organizers said in a statement.The message -Of course, a mass turnout is no guarantee, especially with temperatures often glacial in mid-January.But at least 1,200 buses have asked for parking permits at Washington’s RFK Stadium for the protest day—compared with just a few hundred for Inauguration Day.Organizers have not specifically used the term “anti-Trump” to describe their efforts, but the message is clear.Bringing together “people of all genders, ages, races, cultures, political affiliations and backgrounds,” organizers say the protest march seeks to secure immigrant rights and access to abortion services, among other demands—things which Trump’s critics accuse him of wanting to curb.Dozens of progressive organizations are supporting the event, with African Americans are expected to make a strong showing.The Black Lives Matter movement, which has focused on denouncing police misconduct, is one of the participants—leading some who see the movement as too radical to withdraw from the January 21 event.Trump can expect to see lots of signs recalling some of his questionable interactions with women, including allegations of sexual assault, sexist comments and fat-shaming a former beauty queen.Pink protest hats -The “Pussyhat Project” is hoping knitters will make one million pink hats with cat ears for protest participants.The play on words is deliberate: they are drawing attention to one of Trump’s more vulgar remarks, made in 2005 and caught on video but which only surfaced in October.“When you’re a star, they let you do it. Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything,” Trump is heard bragging.The route -Getting approval for the march was not a given, with authorities limiting the number of permits handed out.Authorities are also somewhat on edge, with 28,000 security forces to be deployed when Trump takes the oath of office on the steps of the Capitol.The march should start near Capitol Hill and head up the National Mall.Co-organizer Linda Sarsour said the event would be made accessible to the elderly, pregnant women and those with handicaps.Protesters are using the hashtag #WhyIMarch to explain why they are heading to Washington—from calls for equality to initiatives to curb gun violence to pleas for health care reform.Nearly 300 “sister marches” have been organized in other US cities—including New York, Boston, Los Angeles and Seattle—and around the world.Beyond traditional rallies, other protest events planned nationwide include poetry slams and an “Art Strike” calling on museums and businesses to shut down on January 20 to “combat the normalization of Trumpism.”last_img read more

Audible Sets First Originals From Reese Witherspoons Hello Sunshine EXCLUSIVE

first_imgHere are descriptions for the trio of Audible Originals x Hello Sunshine:“Baddest Bitch in the Room,” written and performed by Sophia Chang: The daughter of Korean immigrants, Chang recounts growing up in a suburb of Vancouver and forming her identity by defying expectations and challenging societal biases. As a young woman who fell in love with hip-hop in its formative years, she moved to New York, slipped into the underground music scene, and influenced the careers of prominent musical artists including the Wu-Tang Clan. Set against a backdrop of underground hip-hop clubs, record label boardrooms and Shaolin Temple pilgrimages, Chang tells her own transformative story of becoming — on her own terms — the baddest bitch in the room.“Magnificent Things,” written and performed by judge Rosemarie Aquilina: An intimate story told by the judge who presided over one of highest-profile cases in sports history: the trial of Larry Nassar, the former team doctor for USA Gymnastics convicted of sexually abusing numerous young women. By inviting all his victims to speak in her courtroom, Aquilina shifted the focus from the accused to the human costs of Nassar’s crimes and changed the national conversation around sexual assault and its consequences.“Limping on the Edge,” written and performed by Maysoon Zayid: A Muslim comedian with cerebral palsy, Zayid tells a story of pursuing her dreams of becoming an activist, actor and writer with optimism, confidence and grace. Zayid, the daughter of Palestinian immigrants, recounts the experiences that have shaped her — from spending  childhood summers in Ramallah to competing for disabled roles against able-bodied actors — and explains how, through her work as a stand-up comedian, she elevates other diverse voices in her field.“These are three remarkable women with incredible stories to tell,” said David Blum, editor-in-chief of Audible Originals, “and we’re honored to be working with our friends at Hello Sunshine to bring their words, in their own powerful and intimate voices, to life for listeners everywhere.” Related ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

The multi-hour audio memoirs will be available on Amazon-owned Audible in late 2019 and early 2020.The original productions fall under a pact the companies struck a year ago, which kicked off with the launch of Reese’s Book Club x Hello Sunshine on the audiobook and audio-entertainment service last summer featuring titles with strong female characters.Chang, Aquilina, and Zayid are each “singular women” who have “pursued their dreams with conviction, achieved success in the face of improbable odds, and are redefining societal norms around female identity and power,” said Charlotte Koh, Hello Sunshine’s head of digital media and unscripted. She added that Audible is “providing these women with a premium service that commands a wide and highly engaged audience.”last_img read more

Chatbot autotweets replies to climate change arguments

first_img Nigel Leck’s creation is @AI_AGW (also known as Turing Test), and the script searches the Twitter site for hundreds of phrases he believes tend to be used by those who think global warming is not occurring, or who think it is occurring but is not anthropogenic or entirely anthropogenic. When the script finds one of the phrases it then “tweets” a response from an extensive database of countering phrases.The return tweets are selected to match the phrases found so, for example, tweets about global warming occurring on Mars or Neptune will produce a response suggesting this does not prove the sun is warming and producing Earth’s global warming. Tweets often contain a link to a scientific source or a video refuting the argument.Leck said he originally wrote many of the rebuttals himself, but he has now extracted many from a university source, but one which he will not identify. Some of the responses relate to religion, which is where Leck says debates with the chatbot often end up.The tweets are not identified as autoresponses, although the name provides clues, and Leck said many people receiving them continue their “conversations” for hours or days, which is possible because the program selects from a range of responses and does not reply the same way each time.Leck said if the program “argues them into a corner,” there tends to be two “crowds”: one who resort to the “God created it that way” final response, and a second group Leck calls “skeptics so unyielding they won’t be swayed by any amount of argumentation.”One problem with the chatbot is its inability to spot sarcasm, which is often rife during extreme weather events such as heat waves, when many tweets suggest it’s so hot outside it’s “a good thing global warming is a myth,” or cold snaps, when tweets sarcastically suggest global warming is a hoax. Leck said the program includes an algorithm that enables it to learn to recognize such false positives, but that he promptly apologizes when the chatbot is found to have irritated Twitter users who are not arguing about climate change, and whitelists their accounts. Leck said he intends to expand the program at some time by enabling it to cull new phrases from tweets from others (presumably also non-scientists like Leck) debating with those skeptical of climate change arguments. He said this would allow it to argue “into the ground” the increasing number of what he called “anti-science tweeters who are unwilling or unable to look up the proper scientific literature themselves.” (PhysOrg.com) — A software developer has created a “chatbot” program for Twitter to automatically detect set phrases associated with arguments put forward by those skeptical of anthropogenic global warming, and to send automated replies of set phrases debunking their arguments.

Crowdfunding Platforms Need to Be Better Watchdogs Says Journalist Who Investigated Kickstarters

first_imgJanuary 21, 2016 Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. The Zano mini drone campaign on Kickstarter was a disaster. After raising nearly $3.5 million by promising to ship thousands of backers reward drones, the project managed to ship just four.Kickstarter’s response to the high-profile failure was unexpected: the company hired freelance journalist Mark Harris to find out why the project crashed and burned.The results — in the form of Harris’s 13,000-word post-mortem posted on Medium — are in.Related: This ‘Smart Wallet’ Found Success on Kickstarter and Indiegogo. So Why Didn’t It Deliver?“Personally, I do not believe that the creators possessed the technical or commercial competencies necessary to deliver the Zano as specified in the original campaign,” Harris wrote. In his assessment, the crowdfunders in question aren’t scammers. They’re inept.In other words, the Zano campaign’s failure boils down to inexperience and incompetence, a corrosive combination that has torpedoed crowdfunding campaigns time and time again — and burned countless consumers in the process.Toward the close of his exhaustive report, Harris suggests crowdfunding platforms do a better job of positioning themselves as fundraisers instead of “retail websites.” Perhaps this will stop first-time backers from confusing them for online stores, like Amazon.Related: Last Year, Reading Rainbow Raised $5.4 Million on Kickstarter. Then, the Real Work Began.Harris put forth several other recommendations for crowdfunding platforms on how to make crowdfunding a less sketchy endeavor. Here are four of them:  1. Identify and kill off weak or unrealistic projects before they reach their campaign goal. Harris suggests replacing the “Report This Project” button buried at the bottom of every Kickstarter page with a “Convince Me” button. If enough people express skepticism about a project by clicking on such a button, it could be flagged by the platform’s Trust and Integrity team members before it reaches its funding goal.2. Help campaign creators after they meet their goal. When it comes to crowdfunding, raising donations is often the easiest part. It’s typically much harder to deliver promised perks and products. Just ask Reading Rainbow’s LeVar Burton.To give creators a leg up after they’ve reached their funding goal, Harris recommends that crowdfunding platforms pair them with a mentor who has successfully fulfilled rewards for a similar project. Harris envisions the mentors working on a volunteer basis, at least at first. (Although we have to wonder: In the absence of a financial carrot, how motivated would these men and women be to actually help?)Related: 4 Famous Crowdfunding Fails3. Be more vigilant about “massively overfunded” projects. When a campaign exceeds its goal by a large amount, Harris suggests crowdfunding companies step off the sidelines to help creators manage the funding process. This could mean onboarding various “external experts” to consult on wildly successful campaigns, as well as automatically extending reward ship dates as orders add up.Harris argues that crowdfunding platforms need to acknowledge how hard it is to manufacture a product while juggling communications with thousands of backers.4. Crack down on misleading videos that make products look better than they are.Harris alleges the promo video posted on Zano’s Kickstarter page, which shows the nano drone shadowing a mountain biker and flying over selfie-snapping revelers, might have been enhanced by CGI and other filming tricks.To stop campaign creators from wowing backers with sneaky, digitally- and otherwise enhanced videos, Harris suggests crowdfunding platforms create and enforce video review rules. Stricter video requirements could uncover CGI use and help unmask false product claims, ideally before consumers are duped into handing over their hard-earned money.Related: How This Couple Created the All-In-One Travel Jacket That Is Nearing $2 Million on Kickstarter 4 min readcenter_img Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Register Now »last_img read more

Severin Wunderman the chairman and owner of Montr

first_imgSeverin Wunderman, the chairman and owner of Montres Corum, maker of Swiss Corum watches, died in Europe, Elite Traveler has learned.Wunderman was a leading figure in the Swiss watch industry, first with the license for Gucci watches which he sold back to the company, and until his death owner of Corum which he bought and repositioned into the luxury watch segment.Wunderman was known for his philanthropy and in 2004, the President of the French Republic, Jacques Chirac, raised Wunderman to the level of Chevalier of the National Order of the Legion of honor. The medal was given to him on June 17, 2005 in Paris, in the salons of the Minister of Culture and Communication, by his Minister Renaud Donnedieu de Vabres.According to his biography, Wunderman was born in Belgium in 1938, he was forced during the second World War to seek exile in the United States, where he later became an American citizen. Thanks to his exceptional adaptive qualities, he became very successful in the business world. From his youth, when he was just an apprentice watchmaker, he was attracted by art and culture and showed a certain taste for the works of Jean Cocteau – a taste that would later be confirmed after a meeting with the artist’s heir, Edouard Dermit.With Steven Spielberg, he founded “The Severin Wunderman Collection of Child Survivor Testimonies from the holocaust: The children speak to children”. At the same time, he realized a dream: create a Cocteau Museum, the “Severin Wunderman Family Museum”, situated in Orange County.“The entire family of Elite Traveler is saddened by this news,” said Douglas Gollan, president and Editor-in-Chief of Elite Traveler. “Mr. Wunderman’s purchase of Corum came at a similar time to our launch of Elite Traveler in 2001, and he was an early supporter of our business. His creativity and business acumen always stood out, and he will be greatly missed by ourselves and his many friends. Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family.”The family could not be reached for comment.last_img read more
