Mac gives Moose Jaw permission to make him tallest moose in world

Posted On Oct 17 2019 by

first_imgMOOSE JAW, Sask. — Mac has given his caretakers in Moose Jaw, Sask., permission to once again make him the world’s tallest moose statue.The moose says he would even wear an RCMP Stetson or stilettos if it made him taller.Mac held the title for decades at almost 10 metres high.But Norway has put up a silver moose statue that edges out Mac by 30 centimetres.Tourism Moose Jaw’s executive director says the city is willing to do whatever it takes to put Mac back on top.Jacki L’Heureux-Mason says it’s more than just a good-natured competition.“This puts our Mac in the spotlight, putting Moose Jaw on the radar of potentially millions of visitors,” she said at a Monday news conference.“This is big.”Some people in Norway are aware of the campaign and say they are prepared to lock antlers with Moose Jaw for the honour of having the tallest statue.L’Heureux-Mason said shedding Mac’s antlers to grow bigger ones is the obvious answer. Talks with structural engineers are to take place to determine the best option.Mac weighs 9,000 kilograms and has been welcoming visitors from his perch along the highway since 1984. He won an award in 2013 for being Moose Jaw’s best celebrity.Mayor Fraser Tolmie, who read a statement on behalf of Mac,  said the moose is flattered by all the attention he’s been receiving.Mac added he hasn’t received this much attention since mating season.“One way or another, I will soon reclaim my status as the world’s largest moose.”A GoFundMe page has been set up with a goal of raising $50,000. The campaign had raised just over $2,700 as of Monday afternoon.— With files from CJMEThe Canadian Presslast_img read more

first_imgThe Canadian Press Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg changed her Twitter bio Tuesday, embracing U-S President Donald Trump’s description of her.The American president seemed to mock the 16-year-old in a tweet following her fiery speech Monday at the Climate Action Summit at the United Nations in New York, where she shamed leaders and said “How dare you?” for not doing enough to prevent a warming world.Trump, who had spent only a few minutes at the summit, tweeted late Monday: “She seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future.

WHY THE CAST OF PET SEMATARY LOOKS SO FAMILIAR

Posted On Oct 15 2019 by

first_imgAdvertisement Facebook Advertisement It’s been decades since the first movie adaptation of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary taught audiences not to trust their cats, and America is well overdue for a refresher. Luckily for us, there’s 1992’s Pet Sematary Two, the sequel so bad that King had his name removed from the credits. And luckily for people who don’t like bleeding from their eyes, there’s the 2019 remake of the original.Directed by relative newcomers Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer and written by The Prodigy’s Jeff Buhler, Pet Sematary has received a load of positive reviews for its creepy atmosphere, commitment to the source material, and altogether ooky cast of characters. But who were the actors who decided that sometimes, not letting a franchise die is better? Let’s take a look at the talent behind the film and why so many of them look familiar.

Rabat – Al Hoceima was at the heart of French President Emmanuel Macron and King Mohammed VI’s meeting this Wednesday evening in the Royal Palace in Casablanca. During a press conference, Macron told the media that the King is “concerned” by the protests happening in the Rif, “a region that is very dear to his heart.”Responding to the questions of a French journalist about the situation in Al Hoceima, Macron stressed that he has “no right to make a judgment on a matter of domestic policy.” However, the French president stated that the on-going protests in the North of Morocco are a matter of importance to the King.

Posted On Oct 11 2019 by

General Assembly President Joseph Deiss today acknowledged Madagascar’s commitment to achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) as the African nation announced its decision to not take the podium at a high-level gathering on the eight anti-poverty targets.The three-day meeting, which wraps up today, heard from scores of world leaders and aims to identify how to accelerate progress to meet the MDGs, with just five years left until their 2015 deadline.Mr. Deiss said in a statement that Madagascar, on a “voluntary and sovereign basis,” decided not to speak at the MDG debate.He expressed his “appreciation to all African Member States, including Madagascar, for their support to the objective of achieving the Millennium Development Goals and the wider objective of reducing poverty, including on the African continent.”During last year’s high-level segment of the Assembly’s 64th session, the 192-member body barred a delegation from Madagascar, where violent political unrest led to the ousting of the president, from addressing the event.President Marc Ravalomanana resigned in early March 2009 amid a dispute with Andry Rajoelina, mayor of the capital, Antananarivo, who now leads the country. 22 September 2010General Assembly President Joseph Deiss today acknowledged Madagascar’s commitment to achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) as the African nation announced its decision to not take the podium at a high-level gathering on the eight anti-poverty targets. read more


Applications sought for hangmans job

Posted On Oct 8 2019 by

Applications have been sought for the hangman’s job with President Maithripala Sirisena saying he hopes to implement the death penalty soon.The Department of Prisons has called for applications from today to recruit two new hangmen. A name list on the convicts was also sent to the Attorney General in October last year. (Colombo Gazette) He said that he is determined to implement the death penalty despite some strong objections. The President said that he had sought a report on convicts sentenced to death for grave crimes related to drugs.However he said the report had been delayed. In July 2018 the then cabinet had approved a proposal by the President to implement the death sentence on repeat offenders on death row for serious drug related crimes.Last month, the Minister of Justice and Prison Reforms Thalatha Atukorale briefed the cabinet on the steps taken by the Ministry to gather information on drug convicts who are on death row.The Minister had told the cabinet that after President Maithripala Sirisena had announced in July 2018 that the death sentence will be implemented on convicts on death row for serious drug related crimes, the Justice Ministry had sought information on the convicts from the Department of Prisons. The Department of Prisons had, that same month, sent a name list of 18 convicts to the Justice Ministry. President Maithripala Sirisena told Parliament last week that the death penalty will be implemented within two months. read more


ABCs OBrian leads group of US news veterans into AlJazeera America leadership

At the beginning of this year, it bought former Vice-President Al Gore’s Current TV, giving the company access to some 50 million homes initially, and began to set up a network specifically for the U.S. audience.O’Brian has worked at ABC News for three decades, and since 2007 has been the network’s senior vice-president for news, leading its breaking news coverage.“She is a highly experienced and award-winning journalist who fully understands what Americans want to see and hear when they watch the news,” said Mostefa Souag, acting director general of the Al-Jazeera Media Network. “Kate has the vision, tenacity and integrity to ensure that Al-Jazeera America will quickly become the success we expect it to be.”Three other Americans who have extensive experience in television news, but aren’t working there currently, will join Al-Jazeera as senior vice-presidents.David Doss, a producer for news shows at ABC and NBC News who had most recently been producing broadcasts for Anderson Cooper at CNN, will be in charge of news programming.Marcy McGinnis, currently teaching journalism at Stony Brook University, will be responsible for news gathering, similar to a job she held at CBS News a decade ago.Shannon High-Bassalik has run local news operations, worked at MSNBC and most recently produced CNN’s morning news show before it was remodeled. She will be in charge of documentaries and programs.Al-Jazeera has announced that a handful of familiar names to American viewers — Sheila MacVicar, Ali Velshi and Soledad O’Brien — will be doing on-air work for the network. The network also has said it will air a regular newsmagazine, “America Tonight,” on weeknights.O’Brian started work at ABC more than 30 years ago as an intern at “20/20.” ABC News President Ben Sherwood wrote to his staff on Monday that “I will miss the sound of her voice, urgent and measured, calling in the middle of the night, when news is breaking somewhere around the world.” read more


Fleeing DR Congo violence thousands take perilous lake journey to Uganda –

Posted On Oct 2 2019 by

With attacks on villages in the DRC province of Ituri continuing over the weekend, UNHCR calls for increased humanitarian access to the area, to cover the population’s enormous protection and assistance needs.Refugees crossing to Uganda talk of growing attacks against civilian populations, as well as killings and destruction of private property. UNHCR staff also received many reports of civilians being hacked to death and killed with arrows.UNHCR works with the Ugandan authorities for the registration and the relocation of the new arrivals to settlements further inland. However, more support is needed to face the demanding situation.Among the critical priorities is the preparation of new settlement areas, together with psycho-social interventions to help refugees overcome their trauma. Meanwhile, crossings through Lake Tanganyika towards Burundi and Tanzania declined significantly last week, currently reaching some 8,000 and 1,200 respectively. Army advances against the armed groups inside DRC, as well as a dwindling supply of readily available fishing boats and canoes, may have contributed to the drop in new arrivals.However, UNHCR is afraid that flows could soon pick up again, given the unpredictable and volatile nature of the conflict.Over the past year, some 120,000 Congolese fled to neighboring countries, joining the 510,000 refugees that were already in exile. With Congolese refugee flows to neighboring countries expected to further increase in 2018, UNHCR is urging donors to step up their support. Of the $368.7 million that UNHCR has requested for the DRC refugee situation, only one per cent has been funded so far. More than 22,000 desperate Congolese refugees crossed Lake Albert to Uganda last week, with four drowning when their boat capsized, the United Nations reported Tuesday, warning that even more lives could be lost on often-perilous lake routes from the conflict-hit eastern regions of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).“The refugees either use small canoes or overcrowded and rickety fishing boats, often carrying more than 250 people and taking up to ten hours to cross,” Babar Baloch, spokesperson for the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) told reporters in Geneva, Switzerland.“Overloaded with luggage and fishing nets, the small canoe, which was carrying the four refugees who drowned on 11 February, had paddled for nearly two days when it was hit by high waves, causing the passengers to fall overboard,” he added.Since the beginning of the year, some 34,000 Congolese have arrived in Uganda.  UNHCR staff have reported several other incidents of boats going adrift due to engine failure or insufficient fuel, prompting rescue operations by the Ugandan authorities.On 7 February, UNHCR partners recorded two more deaths at the DRC shores of Lake Albert – which spans the border into Uganda – where thousands of people are waiting to cross, as some wrangled to get onto the boats. read more


Exfiancés brotherinlaw admits murdering midwife Samantha Eastwood after affair

Posted On Sep 25 2019 by

The court heard that Miss Eastwood had been found in a shallow grave, with masking tape around her face and eyes, and had been wrapped inside a single duvet cover.Today, Mr Miskin told the court: “He panicked afterwards and buried her in an area of which he had some knowledge.”He entirely accepts that he tried, wholly dishonestly, to mislead others in the afternoon after the killing.”He is absolutely horrified about what happened and is deeply sorry, not for himself, but for all the others who are victims of this crime.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Samantha Eastwood The case was widely shared on social media as the desperate search for the missing midwife dragged on. But when the discovery of her body was made, her family said in a statement issued through Staffordshire Police: “We would like to say thank you to all the people who followed Samantha’s story and tried their best to help.” An extended member of Samantha Eastwood’s ex-fiancé’s family has admitted murdering the midwife, who was found buried in a shallow grave in Staffordshire a week after being reported missing.Michael Stirling pleaded guilty to the murder at Northampton Crown Court today.After Stirling entered his plea, the defendant’s barrister Charles Miskin QC addressed the court. He said: “This was not a pre-meditated act. The context of the killing was a background of growing tension arising from a longstanding, but not particularly intense affair.”An earlier hearing heard how the midwife was found in a shallow grave, wrapped in a duvet cover and with tape around her eyes and face.Stirling, of Gratton Road, Bucknall, Stoke-on-Trent, is the brother-in-law of Miss Eastwood’s ex-fiancé, John Peake, and was accused of murdering the midwife between July 26 and August 5 at Baddeley Green, Stoke.Mr Miskin told the court on Monday said that on the afternoon of the killing “various things were said” between the two, “which led to him becoming very angry”.He added: “There was an argument in that context and that led to him being very angry.”After a struggle and while she was on the floor, he put his hands over her throat, her mouth and nose, and as a result of that she died.” The body of Miss Eastwood, 28, was discovered in a rural area near Caverswall, Staffordshire, in August – eight days after going missing.Michael Stirling, 32, appeared then at Stafford Crown Court charged with murdering the popular Royal Stoke Hospital worker. Michael Stirling, 32, leaves North Staffordshire Magistrates’ Court in Newcastle-under-LymeCredit:Peter Byrne/PA Michael Stirling, 32, leaves North Staffordshire Magistrates' Court in Newcastle-under-Lyme Samantha Eastwood Mr Miskin said: “During his intense rage, he originally intended to cause her really serious bodily harm, but matters escalated and he carried out the intention to kill her.”Jonas Hankin QC, prosecuting, said that two days before the murder Stirling had researched methods on how to “kill oneself”.He added: “There were searches made on a laptop, two days before the killing.”The subject matter appears to relate to research into methods by which one might kill oneself, in particular using carbon monoxide, or involving suffocation and involving ingestion of poison, specifically anti-freeze.”Mr Hankin added Stirling had a “history of mental health problems” as recently as 2015, and asked for permission through the court, from the defendant, to access his medical records.Stirling was remanded in custody to appear at Stafford Crown Court for sentencing on December 3.Addressing Stirling, Mrs Justice Carr said: “Mr Stirling, you have now pleaded guilty to the charge of murdering Samantha Eastwood and we will now proceed to sentence.”I’ll adjourn for further investigations and finals arrangements for that.” read more


Exercise could be as good as drugs at cutting high blood pressure

Posted On Sep 25 2019 by

Earlier this month the Health Secretary ordered a crackdown on overprescribing by GPs, with a review to examine Britain’s reliance on prescription drugs. The study – the first of its kind – pooled data from almost 400 trials looking at the impact of either medication or physical activity. It found that for those with high blood pressure, exercise seemed to be just as effective as most drugs used to treat it. Matt Hancock has also urged GPs to prescribe exercise,… Exercise may be as good at drugs at reducing high blood pressure, research suggests. The number of drugs doled out for the condition has soared in recent years, with a 50 per cent rise in prescriptions in England between 2006 and 2016.

Manchesterbased Mears employees to strike in a dispute over pay

Posted On Sep 15 2019 by

first_imgHousing maintenance employees who work for repair and maintenance organisation Mears in Manchester and who are members of the trade union Unite are undertaking strike action in a dispute over pay.The industrial action will commence with a 48-hour strike today (Thursday 16 November 2017), with 49 scheduled strike days planned until 9 February 2018.Around 180 Unite members who work at Mears in Manchester and at Manchester Working, a joint venture organisation operated by Mears, voted in favour of industrial action in a ballot last month.  The new programme of strikes follows 40 days of industrial action that has already taken place this year.The ongoing dispute regards pay differentials between employees at Mears in Manchester and at Manchester Working. Unite states that some housing maintenance employees are being paid £3,500 less for performing the same work.Unite has announced the industrial action is being taken as a result of Mears failing to meaningfully negotiate on pay and conditions, the detrimental treatment of employees during previous action, attacks on employees’ holiday entitlement, the allocation of work to sub-contractors, inappropriate allocation of work to apprentices, trainees and improvers, and proposed unilateral changes to working hours and conditions for some of the affected employees.Unite additionally argues that Mears has supplied disingenuous information, as a 10% pay deal offered by the organisation was withdrawn, and would have required employees to work an extra two hours a week. Unite also claims that Mears has provided incorrect figures surrounding employee pay and potential earnings.The affected employees undertake housing maintenance work across 12,000 properties managed by the housing association Northwards, via a contract tendered by Manchester council.Andy Fisher, regional co-ordinating officer at Unite, said: “Mears has again been given the opportunity to resolve this dispute following the overwhelming vote for strike action. Once again they have squandered this opportunity. Strike action is being taken as a last resort and will unfortunately inevitably result in widespread disruption to tenants of Northwards housing.“Unite has attempted to persuade Northward to put pressure on Mears to resolve the dispute but that has not occurred, perhaps due to the close relationship between the management of the two organisations. The deliberate misinformation by Mears about what [employees] earn has only strengthened the resolve of the workforce to press ahead with the strikes. Our members know the truth about what they are actually paid.”Mears Manchester Working was unavailable for comment at time of publication.last_img read more

Demand growing for Hyderabad Metro Rail free shuttle services

Posted On Sep 6 2019 by

first_imgJeedimetla: The Hyderabad Metro Rail (HMR) launched its shuttle buses from Durgam Cheruvu station for the commuters to improve last-mile connectivity to Gachibowli and financial district. The buses are said to be available every 15 minutes for the commuters. These services are operated from 8 am to 12 noon and from 4 pm to 9 pm on weekdays.The bus services provide a great relief for the employees who can now travel without having to hail shared autos or other transport. However, locals residing in areas like Kompally, Jeedimetla, Bolarum and Alwal find it difficult to go to Metro station and reach their respective workspaces without hassles. There is a demand to increase shuttle services across non-IT corridors like which can be helpful for those who travel by metro daily. Also Read – With 61 feet high, Khairatabad Ganesh claimed to be tallest idol in India Advertise With Us Sapan Mahajan, a regular commuter by metro who resides at Jeedimetla and works at Hi-Tec City, said, “There are many more IT professionals residing in the non-IT corridors and HMRL should consider them as well and start shuttle service, as it will also be beneficial for the local commuters. Usually, we have to take a share auto or bus till the respective metro station which costs around Rs 15-20. Having a free shuttle service or a paid shuttle service with a minimum amount of Rs 10 can save expenses and time simultaneously.” Also Read – Unidentified assailants killed a person in Saidabad PS limits Advertise With Us Jyoti Rao, a student of St Francis College who resides in Alwal, said, “The frequency of buses in the morning is enough. However, there aren’t any direct buses from one place to another and sometimes it becomes difficult to change buses in peak rush hours. Hence having a metro shuttle service anywhere from Kompally or Alwal to Paradise metro station and also from Jeedimetla to Balangar metro station will provide much relief to a lot of people and also it will provide better connectivity in areas where there is no metro service.”last_img read more

first_imgAs with all Bethesda games, Fallout 4 has its fair share of launch build problems across all platforms. Many of them are just funny or a little frustrating when they impact gameplay. However, one newly discovered exploit/glitch is going to have Bethesda rolling out a patch as soon as is humanly possible. The reason? It allows vendors to gift you infinite bottle caps, the in-game currency.The exploit works as follows: approach any vendor and buy all of their stock of a single ammo type. Then sell back one round of that ammo. Then sell all the remaining rounds back of that same ammo. At this point, one of the rounds remains in your inventory even though you sold all rounds. You can then repeatedly sell this one round back to the vendor until all of his money is gone.The vendor will replenish his stock of bottle caps 24 hours after running out, so you can go sleep for that amount of time in-game and return to the same vendor to do this all over again. Alternatively, just go to another vendor. As the video below shows (PlayStation 4 1.01 version of the game), you can also use the exploit for all items.How someone happened to figure out this exploit existed is anyone’s guess. Was it pure luck or a concerted effort to try anything and everything to break the vendor system? Clearly it’s not something Bethesda’s QA department tested for.I’m sure it will be very tempting to take advantage of this glitch, but then you’d be cheating. If you’re fine with that then go right ahead, otherwise, expect Bethesda to have patched it out of the game within a few days. In the meantime, if you need some tips for playing the game we’ve got you covered.If you’re into other fun Fallout 4 semi-exploits, you can find the developer’s room in the game:last_img read more

Clinicians make one request to the eHealth Global customer support team who then collect, digitize, organize, store and secure medical records for prompt clinical viewing.For more information: http://www.eHGT.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | PACS | August 09, 2019 Lake Medical Imaging Selects Infinitt for Multi-site RIS/PACS Infinitt North America will be implementing Infinitt RIS (radiology information system)/PACS (picture archiving and… read more Videos | Radiology Business | August 02, 2019 VIDEO: Key Topics for Radiology Administrators at AHRA 2019 Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) President … read more Technology | Cybersecurity | August 07, 2019 ScImage Introduces PICOM ModalityGuard for Cybersecurity ScImage Inc. is bridging the gap between security and functionality with the introduction of the PICOM ModalityGuard…. read more Related Contentlast_img read more
