Indigenous man tossed from Whitehorse hotel in violent confrontation caught on video

first_img(Violent video sparked a protest Thursday night from locals demanding answers from hotel. Submitted photo)APTN News Kathleen MartensA video posted on Facebook shows a violent confrontation between a homeless Indigenous man and a Whitehorse hotel employee on New Year’s Eve.And all because the homeless man wasn’t a guest.“It was during that really cold snap we had…I rolled down my window and yelled, ‘Hey, what the hell are you guys doing?’” said a man who witnessed the commotion at Westmark Whitehorse hotel.The witness, who spoke to APTN News on condition of anonymity, said the temperature was about -45C with the wind chill.“It looked like he was trying to throw him out of the building…I was surprised to see that because usually they call the cops.”The 10-second video was posted this week on social media and appears to show a larger, hotel employee grabbing the Indigenous man by the coat and yank him towards to the front door.The Indigenous man then appears to throw a punch at the hotel employee who responds with striking the Indigenous man twice before pushing him out the front door. Once outside the scuffle to continues before the video ends.The witness said the smaller man is from Inuvik: “He might be homeless. I think he’s from Fort McPherson, NWT.”Kwanlin Dun First Nation Chief Doris Bill couldn’t identify the victim but said she was “disturbed” by the violent confrontation she watched on Facebook.“The day and age you can push people around without any consequences, well those days are over,” she said.A lawyer for the hotel’s owner – Holloway Lodging Corp. – said the employee didn’t follow proper procedure but the video didn’t show everything that happened.“We don’t want our employees to put themselves at risk,” said Jordan Vaeth. “We advise them that what they should do is simply call the police.”He said the video sparked an internal investigation that is confidential. But he confirmed the employee still works there.A group with handmade protest signs gathered outside the hotel Thursday night “in response to the video of a First Nations man being forcefully ejected from the hotel.”A spokesperson for the protest said in an email they want to meet with hotel management to discuss what happened.“It is our hope to find some answers as to what happened to that man in the video, and to affirm our position that the intolerance demonstrated by assaults of this nature are unacceptable and will not go unaddressed,” the spokesperson told APTN.Meanwhile, Vaeth said what isn’t seen on the video is that police were called and arrived within minutes.“The portion that you don’t see they had been allowed into the hotel because they’d asked for admittance, so the front desk person had gone allowed them in, spoke to them inside and then the portion that you see is when they had refused to leave,” said Vaeth.He said the man was ordered to leave because he was “not a guest.”RCMP told APTN they were aware of the video but declined to comment.Vaeth said police told him they couldn’t find the alleged victim.Bill urged the hotel owner to join with the community in finding a solution to dealing with vulnerable people.“I understand this is a business. But this is not the way to do things,” she said.“When it’s close to -40C outside you want to stop into a business or whatever if it gets too cold to warm up.”On its website, the Westmark Whitehorse describes itself as the Yukon’s largest hotel and conference centre.kmartens@aptn.calast_img read more

External risks more acute for Canada than in the recent past IMF

first_imgOTTAWA – The external risks facing the Canadian economy are more acute than in the recent past, the IMF said Monday in an annual review that has focused on the country’s housing market in recent years.Cheng Hoon Lim, the IMF’s assistant director, Western Hemisphere Department, said economic anxiety is high with concerns about the future of the NAFTA talks and developments in international corporate taxation including the recent U.S. corporate tax cuts.“The impact of lower corporate tax rates in the U.S. could make Canada a less attractive destination for investment,” she said.The IMF report recommended it was time for Canada to examine its corporate tax in the face of the changes in the U.S.Lim also said failure to reach a NAFTA agreement within a reasonable time frame could hurt investment and growth for an extended period.The IMF report estimated failure to reach a new NAFTA agreement could reduce long-run Canadian real gross domestic product by 0.4 per cent relative to its baseline forecast. That amount could increase if non-tariff trade costs increase, the report noted.The IMF said it expects the Canadian economy, which grew by three per cent last year, to slow to growth of 2.1 per cent in 2018 and 2.0 per cent in 2019.In its report, the IMF noted the housing market continues to remain a key domestic risk for the economy. But, it said that the vulnerability has moderated somewhat, as the housing market has shown signs of cooling down.“It will remain a vulnerability for some time given the large stock of household debt,” Lim said.The Canadian government said it continues to monitor the issues raised by the IMF report to ensure that its actions continue to support growth and contribute to a strong middle class.“Our government’s approach of investing in people and in the economy is yielding positive results, which are being recognized around the world,” Finance Minister Bill Morneau said in statement.Last week, the United States ended an exemption from steel and aluminum tariffs that had been granted to Canada, Mexico and the European Union.Canada responded by announcing plans for tariffs on some $16.6 billion of U.S. goods including steel and aluminum, but also a wide range of consumer goods.The IMF report came ahead of the Bank of Canada’s latest financial system review report that is expected Thursday.In its November report, the Canadian central bank said high levels of household indebtedness and housing market imbalances remain the most important vulnerabilities.last_img read more

Amid rising demand for designer drugs international experts weigh tougher controls

Sold openly, including online, new psychoactive substances (NPS) are marketed as “legal highs” with nicknames such as “spice”, “plant food”, “bath salts” and “meow meow”, and sold openly via the internet.Uncontrolled and therefore not tested for safety, the potential harm of these drugs is greater than that of traditional drugs. “The adverse effects of NPS are poorly understood and present a global health risk,” UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) Executive Director Yury Fedotov said following a meeting of international experts last week in Vienna, Austria.The meeting brought together some of the world’s leading organizations working to tackle the threat of “legal highs” including the UN World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Narcotics Control Board (INCB), as well as international and regional organizations and experts from 22 countries.During the meeting, the participants agreed that while all the tools exist to track NPS, these substances remain challenging.The drugs, a type of mephedrone with effects similar to the effects of cocaine and amphetamines, are based on existing illegal recreational drugs with chemical structures that are modified to varying degrees to evade the drug laws. The number of NPS reported by Member States to UNODC rose in the past year by 41 per cent to 354 from 251, while countries reporting detection climbed to 90 from 70, the UN agency reported.During the meeting, the WHO committed to prioritizing substances to be evaluated for potential harm under drug conventions, to align its review process with meetings for the Commission on Narcotic Drugs for faster review, according to a news release.In response to the proliferation of NPS, UNODC has launched an early warning system in June which the UN said will allow the global community to monitor their emergence and take appropriate actions.UNODC is also supporting its “Make health your ‘new high’ in life, not drugs,” awareness campaign to inform the public, particularly young people, about the harmful effects of NPS. read more

Sarkozy says France is trying to humiliate and destroy him

first_imgFORMER PRESIDENT NICOLAS Sarkozy has accused France’s justice system of trying to “humiliate” and “destroy” him, after he was charged in a corruption probe that could spell trouble for his future political ambitions.The former conservative party leader fought back in a broadcast interview yesterday, just hours after his release from questioning over a highly publicized investigation into judicial allegations that he took 50 million euros ($67 million) in illegal campaign funds from Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi.The detention — a very unusual move for such a high-level figure — has dominated French news broadcasts, and comes as his faltering UMP political party has floated a possible comeback by the hard-driving 59-year-old.Sarkozy, who spent nearly a day in custody on Tuesday answering questions about his 2007 presidential campaign, said on TF1 TV and Europe-1 radio that he was “profoundly shocked” over his 16-hour detention.“Is it normal that I should be in custody for so long?” Sarkozy asked, squinting intensely at an interviewer. He said his detention was motivated out of “a desire to humiliate me.”“A part of the justice system is being used for political purposes,” he said, warning of an unspecified plot.“In our country … there are things that are in the process of being organized,” he said. “The French need to know them, and in their conscience, and freely, need to judge what’s happening.” Members of the media stand in front of the entrance to the anti-corruption office of the French police. Source: AP/Press Association ImagesLe Monde newspaper has reported that the questioning centers on whether Sarkozy and his lawyers were informed about an investigation into the Libyan case by magistrate Gilbert Azibert, in exchange for promises — that were never fulfilled — for him to receive a post in Monaco.“Azibert did not get a post in Monaco,” Sarkozy said. “There has been no move in favor of Monsieur Azibert.”He hinted that the charges wouldn’t necessarily stop him for running for president again in 2017 — although he left people guessing about his future career plans.“I’m not a man who is discouraged by villainy and political manipulation,” said Sarkozy, lashing out at what he called left-leaning magistrates “whose political obsession is to destroy the person who’s meant to be investigated.”Earlier, Prime Minister Manuel Valls said the investigation was being carried out independently of the Socialist government. His boss, Socialist President Francois Hollande, defeated Sarkozy in the presidential race in 2012.“This situation is serious. The facts are serious,” Valls told BFM TV.Sarkozy is accused of tapping political allies to gain intelligence on a flurry of probes linked to campaign finance. He has vigorously denied the claims, and insisted Wednesday that he has “never betrayed trust” of the French people.After further investigation, judges will determine whether to hold a trial.Read: Former French President charged with corruptionlast_img read more

Une espèce non identifiée de rat géant découverte en Angleterre

first_imgUne espèce non identifiée de rat géant découverte en AngleterreBrian Watson, un agriculteur de la région nord-est de l’Angleterre a découvert dans son champs une sorte de rat géant. L’identité du rongeur reste pour l’heure un mystère. Est-ce un ragondin, un rat disproportionné ou une femelle enceinte? Les spécialistes restent perplexes. La créature abattue par Brian Watson à Waskerley, dans le nord-est de l’Angleterre, est pour le moins singulière.”Je n’avais jamais vu un aussi gros rat de ma vie” affirme l’agriculteur et pour cause, la photo que celui-ci a posté sur Twitter révèle un spécimen de près d’un mètre de long!À lire aussiUn nautile extrêmement rare observé pour la première fois en 30 ans en PapouasieLa réelle identité de l’animal sera toutefois difficile à déterminé étant donné que Brian Watson a décidé de le bruler, par peur de rameuté les curieux.

How to Create the Cheesiest Fondue According to Scientists

first_img Dipping bread into a big pot of cheesy fondue sounds heavenly, and a group of Swiss scientists are studying the texture of the dish to create the perfect batch.The scientists, which published their findings in the American Chemistry Society journal, discovered that the flow behavior of the fondue is, “crucial for mouthfeel, flavor release, and the tendency of fondue to cling to the bread.” What’s more, analyzing the fondue’s movement could enable food industry folks to create tastier meals for customers in the future, SWI reported.Cheesy study helps find the perfect fondue— news schweiz (@newsch) February 12, 2019“Cheese fondue is an excellent example of a complex food system whose eating experience is governed by its rheology. The yield stress of fondue is crucial as the cheese needs to properly coat the bread and resist gravity,” the scientists said in the study. “The thickness of the cheese layer probably increases with viscosity.”Model fondues in the experiment. (Photo Credit: Rheology of Swiss Cheese Fondue/ACS Omega)For the experiment, the research team prepared batches of fondue in a laboratory, where they tested different ingredients, including Gruyère and Vacherin cheeses, and observed how the cheesy mixtures dripped and separated. But, determining the drag of liquid cheese is no easy task: In this lab, the team fond that the gel point, which in scientific terms is a balance of “orally perceived gumminess and liquidity,” was critical to achieving a tasty, gooey batch of fondue.So, what ingredients are a big no-no for fondue? The scientists found that too much white wine thinned fondue and excess starch made the fondue too gummy-like. Meanwhile, scientists said a good fondue batch depends on the mixture of dispersed fat droplets, caseins, starch, and cheese in a water-continuous system. If pH-dependent electrostatic interactions of these components go well, then a cheesy, delicious batch of fondue will be produced.Dipping agents can also impact a good fondue batch: SWI asked how dipping agents, including bananas, potatoes, or pineapple, impacted the viscosity of fondue, and one of the scientists said that they haven’t tested the introduction of these foods, however, pineapple might be easier to digest than bread dipped with fondue.A 2010 University of Zurich study further debated if cheese fondue should be washed down with black tea, cherry schnapps, or white wine. The study, which recruited 20 volunteers, said “Gastric emptying after a Swiss cheese fondue is noticeably slower and appetite suppressed if consumed with higher doses of alcohol … [and] significantly faster when fondue is consumed with tea or water.” So depending on your appetite, you can drink some water, tea, or vino with this tasty dish.More on to Cook Perfectly Fried Rice, According to ScientistsHow to Make the Best Pizza, According to PhysicistsFirst Lab-Grown Steak Gives Foodies a Taste of the Future Watch: Dolphin Leaps Feet Away From Unsuspecting SurferNASA Says 2 Asteroids Will Safely Fly By Earth This Weekend Stay on targetlast_img read more

Asian tapeworm found in Alaskan salmon

first_img(Graphic: Jayde Ferguson)Scientists recently announced they had found an Asian tapeworm species in pink salmon caught off the coast of the Kenai Peninsula.Listen nowHumans can contract the tapeworm by eating raw or under-cooked fish, but researchers say the risk is low.For years, researchers have suspected the Japanese broad tapeworm was present on the Pacific Coast of North America. But with improved genetic techniques, they can now be sure.In a recent study, a team of scientists identified a Japanese broad tapeworm larva in pink salmon caught in Resurrection Creek near Hope.The tapeworm larva, which was about 10 mm long, had burrowed deep into the fish’s muscle near the spinal cord.Jayde Ferguson is a fish pathologist with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game and one of the study co-authors. He said the Japanese species looks remarkably similar to another fish tapeworm already present in North America.“There’s been growing evidence that it’s been here, it’s just the ability to differentiate it with the similar looking species has now improved with molecular testing,” Ferguson said.Japanese broad tapeworm eggs were first found in wolf feces in British Columbia back in 2008.This is the first time larvae in fish have been found in North America, but it’s likely this species has been present here for many years. That’s why Ferguson said the name Japanese broad tapeworm is somewhat misleading.“Pacific salmon are on both sides of the Pacific Ocean. They’ve evolved on those sides for thousands and thousands of years as have their parasites,” Ferguson said. “There’s really no increased risk, no need to be alarmed.”Since it was first identified in 1986, the tapeworm has been found in several salmon species, including sockeye, chum and pinks.Tapeworm larvae in raw or under-cooked fish can infect humans and other carnivores. An estimated 2,000 people have contracted the tapeworm worldwide, mostly in northeast Asia.The risk of contracting the parasite in Alaska, either from raw fish in a restaurant or at the store, is low. According to the Alaska Food Code, businesses must freeze all fish prior to serving to kill parasites.To ensure the safety of personally caught fish, Ferguson said there are simple precautions to take.“There are FDA guidelines on how to prepare your fish properly to basically avoid any risk of infection,” Ferguson said. “That would be freezing your fish in your standard household freezer for one week or cooking it to the standard recommended cooking temperature of 140 degrees Fahrenheit.”The study appears in the February issue of Emerging Infectious Diseases.For more information on common fish diseases and parasites in Alaska, consult the Alaska Department of Fish and Game’s illustrated handbook.last_img read more

How to Check Your Chromebooks Battery Health

first_img Henry T. Casey, Henry T. Casey, on Chromebooks have a reputation for being overly simple, but you can find out more about your particular Chrome OS machine if you know where to poke around. For example, did you know that you can check the health of a Chromebook’s battery, without any other apps and only a few clicks and commands?This trick is super useful for finding out if your Chromebook’s battery is in its last days, or if its short battery life is due to you pushing it to the limits. Also, you get to meet the Chrome terminal, the Crosh — an amazing name. There’s also some optional algebra involved, if you want to see what the results say about your system’s long term life.MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro: Which 13-inch MacBook Is Right For You?Apple’s entry-level MacBook Air and Pro look pretty similar, but our testing proved they differ in crucial ways.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Which Cheap Tablet Is Best?

Hit Ctrl + Alt + t to open the Crosh.2. Type ‘battery test’ and hit Enter.3. Here’s your battery’s health, measured in a percentage out of 100 percent.4. If your Chromebook is unplugged, it will run its battery discharge test, which checks how much of your battery drains in 5 minutes.You can get a speculative battery life estimate (based on whatever action you’re doing on the Chromebook) with that result. For example, I plugged 0.69, the result I got, into the following equation:((100/0.69)*5)/60=And got 12.07 hours of battery life. That being said, this test doesn’t take actual system use into account.5. Type ‘battery_firmware info” into the Crosh and hit Enter.6. Here you’ll see the maximum battery capacity (Design capacity), how of that capacity your battery hit at its last full charge, and how many battery cycles you’ve gone through. So, if my Battery Health is at 96.86 percent, that means I’ve used 3.14 percent of its total life in those 25 cycles.  Then, (96.86/3.14) = (X/25), where X = the amount of cycles it will take to deplete the rest of the battery’s health. A simple bit of division and multiplication gets you the answer of approximately 771 cycles being left in your battery, with a total of 796 charges.But I wouldn’t want to rely on long life from a laptop battery once it reaches 400 or more charges. So, if you’re thinking about selling your Chromebook or buying a used one, you’ll want to run these tests to see how its battery is holding up. Congrats, now you’re a lot more informed about your Chromebook’s battery life! Should I Buy a Chromebook?

Bayer hires law firm to investigate claims Monsant

first_img Bayer hires law firm to investigate claims Monsant … In a blow to the plaintiffs, Chhabria this year approved Monsanto’s request to prohibit Hardeman’s attorneys from raising allegations about the corporation’s conduct, saying issues about its influence on science and government were a “significant … distraction”.That means jurors must narrowly consider the studies surrounding Roundup’s cancer risks, and if they rule that Monsanto caused Hardeman’s illness, then in a second phase the jury would learn about the company’s conduct when assessing liability and punitive damages, The Guardian reported.Hardeman’s trial is considered a “bellwether” case for hundreds of other federal plaintiffs who have made similar claims, meaning its outcome could have an impact on the course of future litigation and potential settlements. The high-stakes case comes amid growing global scrutiny of the health impacts of glyphosate, which is sold under the Roundup brand.Germany-based Bayer purchased U.S.-based Monsanto last year, and its share price was rocked by the US$289 million verdict in California state court that Roundup had caused a man’s cancer.To read the full story, click here. Monsanto is facing its first federal trial over allegations that its Roundup weedkiller causes cancer, but a U.S. judge has reportedly blocked attorneys from discussing the corporation’s alleged manipulation of science.The Guardian reported that in an extraordinary move in a packed San Francisco courtroom on Monday, U.S. judge Vince Chhabria threatened to sanction and “shut down” a cancer patient’s attorney for violating his ban on talking about Monsanto’s influence on government regulators and cancer research.“You’ve completely disregarded the limitations that were set upon you,” the visibly angry judge was quoted as saying to attorney Aimee Wagstaff, threatening to prevent her from continuing. “If you cross the line one more time … your opening statement will be over … If I see a single inappropriate thing on those slides, I’m shutting you down.” You might also be interested in Monsanto dealt first Australian lawsuit over cance …center_img U.S. judge calls for second reduced damages award … Bayer hit with US$2B verdict in third Roundup tria … February 26 , 2019 last_img read more

Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impa

first_img Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Comments   Share   As for the rest of the list, the Cardinals’ duo trails Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery (Chicago), Julio Jones and Roddy White (Atlanta), Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate (Detroit), Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb (Green Bay), Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson (Washington), Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins (Houston) and Demaryius Thomas and Wes Welker (Denver). Given that Fitzgerald was just 56 yards short of also reaching the 1,000 yard mark, it seems a bit harsh to call out his skills. While he was not the player he was back when Kurt Warner was the team’s quarterback, his 10 touchdowns tied him for 10th-best in the NFL. Top Stories The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling In 2013, Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd combined for 147 receptions, 1,995 yards, 15 touchdowns and 97 first downs.The duo provided Carson Palmer with a couple of dangerous weapons in the passing game and helped the Cardinals reach the 10-win mark.But where does the pair rank with regards to other receiver duos around the league? According to’s Chris Wesseling, they come in at number eight.Even if we give Fitzgerald a pass for playing through a pair of hamstring injuries last season, he hasn’t been an elite playmaker since 2011. That doesn’t mean he can’t recapture that form again, but he has to show it on the field. Floyd cleared 90 yards in four of the final six games en route to a quiet 1,000-yard season.

"When the DNR gives the permits,Firstpostwill attempt to analyse the short-term and long-term impact of these unprecedented floods on the lives of the people economy of the state and the environment *** Experts say that a week of flooding can generate solid waste equivalent to that generated over a decade This means that the two spells of floods that wreaked havoc in Kerala in July and August may have left behind at least 15 years of waste in the densely populated state The huge army of volunteers who came forward to clean the flood-ravaged houses have left all the floodwater-contaminated waste including plastics and damaged electronic devices on the roadsides and in common areas confounding the health and environmental hazards inflicted by the floods Waste piled up outside a residential building in Kalamaserry after the floods in Kerala Image procured by TK Devasia A drive through the affected areas showed heaps of muck and mud in the compounds of most houses and outside besides huge piles of food wastes utensils clothes mattresses books damaged furniture and e-waste strewn everywhere Apart from household wastes carcasses of animals and birds killed in the floods were also found lying unburied in several places mostly in the water-logged Alappuzhaand landslide-hit Idukki and Wayanad districts Most of these places are still cut off from the outside world because of damaged roads and bridges There are also huge quantities of food wastes plastic bags and bottles aluminium foils wrappers and other packaging material collected from relief camps piled up at many locations These were left over from the hundreds of tonnes of relief material various agencies and donors from across the country Large quantities of unclaimed relief material have also been left dumped in heaps at railways stations and airports Officials at the Ernakulam South Station said the food material that has been left dumped on the platforms for days has started stinking and may lead to health hazards at the station Environmental activists say that the accumulation of such wastes for too long will trigger serious environmental and potential health problems This will only add to the health hazard caused directly by the floods In several flood-affected districts there are already signs of an outbreak of rat fever and a leptospirosis epidemic So far these diseases have claimed 12 lives in Kozhikode district and two each in Ernakulam and Alappuzha districts according to Manaorama Noted environmentalist Harish Vasudevan said the accumulated waste can spread infectious diseases if they are not removed from residential localities immediately and disposed of scientifically "A major threat to health comes from electronic waste as it contains toxins like zinc mercury magnesium and lithium Some of these also contain radioactive substances which are very harmful to human health and the ecosystem" Vasudevan says He also warned of the far-reaching environmental impact of toxins from e-wastecoming in direct contact with drinking water sources especially ina state like Kerala which has an abundance of wells and ponds that serve as majorsources of water for residents Tackling the issue of post-flood waste managementis a massive challenge for Kerala given that the state administration has not been able to manage even the 8000 to 10000 tonnes of waste it usually generates every day While most existing dumpsites and waste treatment plants are already overflowing with municipal wastes accumulated over the years some were washed away by the floods The government has left the task of managing the flood waste to civic bodies which were already saddled with the mammoth task of assessing the damage people have suffered in the floods issuing loss certificates and distributing relief and compensation to them But on 31 August the Kerala cabinet decided to relieve municipalities and municipal corporations from the responsibility and hand the task over to private firms which have the technology needed to process and recycle the waste But for private entities to get to work the government will have to amend the concerned law which is a time-consuming process Waste heaped on the roadside in Aluva after the floods in Kerala Image procured by TK Devasia The accumulated waste cannot wait till thestate introduces an ordinance and then ties up with the private companies Although a number of volunteers have come forward to collect and segregate the waste they have not been able to do much because of lack of support from local bodies A major problem volunteers have faced is lack of adequate vacant space to store and segregate the waste collected from the affected areas While it is impossible to find such spots in cities and towns they are facing resistance from local residents in rural areas In Thrissur district volunteers engaged in disposing waste were chased away when they took the waste to a playground in a village near Mala on 30 August A volunteer in Aluva said the situation is the same in most places Officials of the Suchitwa Mission which provides technical support to local bodies in waste management said the process of collecting
