Manitoba Tory candidate was investigated for sharing photo of naked women

first_imgWINNIPEG — A Progressive Conservative candidate looking to keep his seat in Tuesday’s Manitoba election was investigated for showing his assistant a photo on his cellphone of naked women and making comments about her wearing a bikini.Rick Wowchuk, who is running again in the Swan River constituency, says he is sorry for sharing the inappropriate photo and for his remarks while he was a member of the legislature.“I deeply regret doing so and I have taken full responsibility for my actions,” Wowchuk said in an emailed statement Thursday.CBC News first reported that an independent third-party review of Wowchuk’s actions found he breached the Manitoba legislative assembly’s respectful workplace policy five times.Breaches calling his constituency assistant while he was in the bathtub and making comments about her wearing a bikini.The woman, who was not named, also told the CBC that Wowchuk made a joke leading her to believe there were animal photos on his phone before he showed her a picture of naked women holding chainsaws.Wowchuk said he has since participated in workplace sensitivity training and he would continue to represent his constituents.“I am sincerely sorry this occurred and any offence it caused.”The revelation steered conversations away from promises about taxes, jobs and health care as political parties ramped up efforts in the last days before the election.PC Leader Brian Pallister was at a campaign stop announcing he would quickly hold a jobs summit if returned to power. When asked about the investigation into Wowchuk’s conduct, Pallister said provincial rules prevented him from speaking to any specifics about complaints or investigations.“I am always disappointed when allegations arise on one hand,” Pallister said. “And on the other hand, I am pleased that people are willing to bring these allegations forward. That’s why we have strengthened the laws.”The Tories implemented a “no wrong door” policy in 2018 following allegations by several women that former NDP cabinet minister Stan Struthers tickled and groped female staff or made sexual remarks.Months later, Tory Cliff Graydon was ousted following reports that he had invited two women on separate occasions to sit on his lap, and invited one woman to lick food off his face. He is running as an Independent.Tory candidate Nic Curry decided not to run after he also faced allegations of inappropriate behaviour.Pallister said the latest investigation shows people can trust that their complaints will be taken seriously.When asked why the complainant was not informed about the investigation’s outcome, Pallister said he couldn’t speak to that either. He also declined to comment on the decision to allow Wowchuk to run again under the Tory banner.NDP Leader Wab Kinew said complainants should be made aware of investigation outcomes. He said his thoughts are with the employee because “what they experienced was not right and they never should have had to go through that.”“As a leader, I have been very dedicated towards setting up training around a culture of consent and respect in our politics,” Kinew said.“I’ve implemented that on the party side, on the legislated side and in any domain we interact with the public, including our campaign offices.”Kinew himself has been criticized for past homophobic and misogynistic rap lyrics and social media posts. His former partner also told The Canadian Press in 2017 that he flung her across their living room, leaving her with severe rug burns. He has denied the allegation.On the campaign trail Thursday, Kinew pledged to keep the provincial laboratory public if his party is elected. He said the Progressive Conservatives are moving towards a two-tiered health system by considering privatizing the lab and diagnostic imaging.Manitoba Liberal Party Leader Dougald Lamont used his campaign stop to promise access to primary-care health services within no more than 20 minutes of travel time for all Manitobans.Kelly Geraldine Malone, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Tourism Sector Achieved Positive Results in 2014 Minister

Rabat  –  The tourism sector achieved positive and overall encouraging results in 2014 despite a slowdown in the past few months, said, on Tuesday in Rabat, tourism minister Lahcen Haddad.Over Jan-Jul period of 2014, this industry posted a rise of 2.4% in Morocco’s tourist arrivals year on year, said Haddad answering a question on tourism decline in the past few months at the house of advisors. The minister also noted a drop in the number of visitors and overnight stays since last August, explaining it by the fall in French tourists arrivals due to France’s warning against visiting some Arab countries, the Paris terrorist shootings and the Ebola epidemic.  To face this situation, mainly the decline concerning the French market, the minister said that an operational plan worth 100 mln dirham was set up to enhance Morocco’s main tourist destinations through awareness-raising campaigns and communication. read more

Tunisian border at crisis point as tens of thousands flee Libyan violence

1 March 2011The situation at the Libyan-Tunisian border has reached crisis point as tens of thousands of people flee the reported violence by President Muammar Al-Qadhafi’s loyalists, with 14,000 people crossing yesterday alone, the United Nations refugee agency said today. “We can see acres of people waiting to cross the border. Many have been waiting for three to four days in the freezing cold, with no shelter or food,” said the head of the emergency response team from the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), Ayman Gharaibeh, at the bordertown of Ras Adjir. Agency officials voiced concern that large numbers of sub-Saharan Africans are not being allowed in.“Usually the first three days of the crisis are the worst. This seems to be getting worse by the day,” Mr. Gharaibeh added, noting that a further 10,000 to 15,000 people were expected to cross over today from Libya – where the Security Council has referred two weeks of reported violent repression by Mr. Qadhafi’s regime against peaceful civilian protesters demanding his ouster to the International Criminal Court for investigation into possible crimes against humanity. Overall nearly 150,000 people, many of them migrant workers, are estimated to have fled since turmoil broke out in mid-February – 70,000 to 75,000 to Tunisia and more than 69,000 to Egypt alone – and UNHCR, which had been using its own resources and stockpiles, is now seeking additional funds, its spokesperson, Melissa Fleming, told a news briefing in Geneva.The agency needs the help of governments and she called on them to alleviate the situation in Tunisia and Egypt, most urgently by helping to evacuate people. She stressed that it is “becoming critically important that onwards transport becomes quickly available to avoid a humanitarian crisis.”On Monday, UNHCR erected 500 tents close to the border in a new transit camp and a further 1,000 are expected to go up today, providing shelter to about 12,000 people. Two airlifts are planned for Thursday with tents and supplies for up to 10,000 more people.The water and hygiene situation remains precarious and UNHCR has asked the International Committee of the Red Cross and the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) to help improve these facilities. Tunisian civilians, the Tunisian Red Crescent and the military have all been unstinting in their support, but are seriously overstretched, the agency said.Ms. Fleming voiced particular concern that a large number of sub-Saharan Africans are not being allowed entry into Tunisia at this point. “UNHCR is in negotiations with self-appointed volunteers from the local community who are guarding the border,” she said.Mr. Gharaibeh said most of those crossing the border were fit young men, noting: “This is the only reason why the situation has not degenerated into a huge crisis so far.”The majority of those who have crossed over to Egypt are Egyptians, most of whom have already been transported to other towns and cities, but some 3,000 people remain at the border awaiting onward transportation, Ms. Fleming said, adding that UNHCR distributed relief items and food prepared by the Egyptian Red Crescent. The Egyptian Red Crescent is due to transport a consignment of UNHCR medical supplies and food into eastern Libya tomorrow at the request of tribal leaders.In Libya itself, UNHCR national staff members have kept the agency’s office in Tripoli open for refugees, offering assistance to those able to reach the office and manning a 24-hour hotline. This phone link, and a hotline manned from Geneva, continues to receive desperate calls from refugees in Libya and their family members outside, saying they feel trapped, threatened and hunted.“We have heard several accounts from refugees who tell us their compatriots have been targeted and killed,” Ms. Fleming said. “Others tell us about forced evictions and attacks on their homes.”The Executive Director of the UN World Food Programme (WFP), Josette Sheeran, who arrived in Tunisia yesterday, was travelling to the border today to meet new arrivals, who have received high energy biscuits airlifted from the UN emergency warehouse in Brindisi, Italy. A senior UN World Health Organization (WHO) official, Eric Laroche, is also at the Tunisian-Libyan border along with several agency experts, and UNICEF said its director of emergency operations, Louis Georges Arsenault, would arrive in Tunisia tomorrow. UNICEF has teams on both sides of the border and is strengthening its capacity to respond to further influxes of refugees and the needs of people in Libya by stockpiling supplies for water, sanitation and hygiene, health, and nutrition, as well as emergency education and protection items. In Geneva, a UNICEF spokesperson, Marixie Mercado, voiced deep concerned at reports of children and adolescents killed in the escalating violence across the Middle East, and especially in Libya. read more

EU calls for durable reconciliation process in Sri Lanka

The EU noted that in 2015, by co-sponsoring HRC resolution 30/1, the Government of Sri Lanka recognized the need to address the past in order to build a better future, grounded in accountability, respect for human rights and the rule of law. As a first step, the EU will closely engage with the Government of Sri Lanka to further strengthen the dialogue on governance, rule of law and human rights. “The full implementation of these commitments, which have been extended once again with the resolution tabled during this session, is now urgently needed,” the EU said. “Intimidation of victims and activists is not compatible with the reconciliation agenda,” teh EU said.The EU encouraged the Government of Sri Lanka to adopt a time-bound implementation strategy and we welcome that this is reflected in the resolution.The EU said it will continue to support Sri Lanka as it looks to work in partnership with the international community to implement its commitments as it moves forward on the path of reconciliation, justice, and progress on human rights. The European Union today called for a durable reconciliation process in Sri Lanka, including through building confidence by completing the return of occupied land, replacing the PTA and advancing the identified transitional justice mechanisms.Speaking during the debate on Sri Lanka at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva today, the EU delegation welcomed the re-commitments made to the people of Sri Lanka and to the international community by the Government of Sri Lanka during the session. While welcoming the improvements in some areas in respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms in Sri Lanka, the EU urges the Government of Sri Lanka to take immediate and sustained action to implement its commitments and institute a durable reconciliation process, including through building confidence by completing the return of occupied land, replacing the PTA and advancing the identified transitional justice mechanisms.The EU said it was also concerned about the continuing reports of harassment or surveillance of human rights defenders and of victims of human rights violations. The EU will also explore with the Government of Sri Lanka how best to assist in the implementation of the resolution, including to ensure that the recommendations are implemented through a time-bound strategy.

Randy Moss Making Strong Impression With 49ers

Randy Moss, the sometimes indifferent receiver, will make a difference for the San Francisco 49ers, he teammates believe.Going off what the 14-year veteran has done in training camp – on and off the field – the Niners see Moss as a difference-maker.“I find myself saying, ‘Wow!’ a couple of times,” star tight end Vernon Davis said. “He’s been in the league, what? Fourteen years? Yet he can still do some of the things he’s done in the past.”“I watched him on film the other day, then I tapped Delanie [Walker, another tight end] and said, ‘Man, he’s moving.’ He ran a ‘go’ route, and he left the corner behind. I looked at Delanie and said, ‘Wow, he’s moving. I can’t believe he can still run.’“But he runs well. You can tell he’s getting older and that he doesn’t have some of the attributes he did when he was younger. But he can still get it done.”Moss, apparently, is driving by one thing.“All he wants,” one GM told cbssports.com, “is a ring. The guy loves the game and wants a Super Bowl ring.”He is on a squad that could do just that. The 49ers had one of the top defenses last year and every starter from that unit remains on the team. And they bolster their offensive skill-position players. San Francisco signed Moss for one year at $2.5 million, not knowing what to expect from the future Hall of Famer.But Moss has been the ideal teammate – so far. He has been among the first to arrive to team meetings and practice. He shares his knowledge with younger teammates.“Randy can still stretch the defense,” linebacker Patrick Willis said. “He can still create a mindset with a defense where it’s ‘OK, where’s Randy? We have to know where Randy is at all times.’ And that’s going to allow other guys to be able to be free.”“He’s going to be an asset,” said quarterback Alex Smith. “For a guy his size to play the ball in the air the way he does and to run like he does is a unique ability. Anytime you get in the red zone, if you want to load the box and play one-on-one with him that’s a gamble — and that makes him a real threat.“Second, I just think the attitude and the professionalism he’s brought to the receiving corps is going to do nothing but contribute to us. The guy’s been in a lot of offenses and won a lot of games. I’ve learned a lot from him. He’s a great communicator as a receiver, and that’s good for our receivers to see.” read more

Guyanas oil too light for Surinames refinery

Rudolf Elias, the Managing Director of Suriname’s state- owned oil company Staatsolie, has said that Suriname’s oil refinery is not built to handle the type of oil that would be extracted from Guyana, thereby refuting statements made by Guyana’s Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman that the Dutch-speaking country was interested in processing Guyana’s oil.Speaking to de Ware Tijd, an online newspaper in Suriname, Elias said, “The refinery is not built to handle the type of oil that is (to be) extracted in Guyana. Their oil is a much lighter quality, our refinery was built for the heavy oil that we have landed here in Suriname”.Elias added that should Suriname discover in its deep sea area the type of light quality oil that is in Guyana, “it will also not be processed in our refinery.”Noting that another problem is the shallow nature of Suriname’s coast, he said Guyana will produce such large quantities of oil – three hundred thousand barrels per day – that gigantic tankers will be needed to transport this oil, as those can carry up to half a million barrels. Such large vessels cannot even moor at Suriname’s shores, let alone sail the Suriname River to reach its refinery, the oil company’s director said.In fact, he said, a unique feature between the two countries is that in Guyana sand washes up from the Amazon Jungle and makes rivers and coastal areas very shallow, whilst Suriname’s sandbanks reach more than forty kilometres into the sea.Guyana’s Natural Resources Minister Raphael TrotmanHe added that it is impossible to dredge a course to allow large oil tankers access to Suriname’s refineries. Guyana suffers from the same shallow coastline problem, making it unprofitable to build a large refinery.Elias said it would not be wise for Guyana to invest more than two billion US dollars into construction of an expensive refinery which would be in operation for a limited number of years.  According to Elias, the Staatsolie refinery can process up to fifteen thousand barrels of oil per day. He said the company produces more on a daily basis, thus leaving little or no room for processing oil from other countries.Managing Director of Staatsolie, Rudolf EliasElias assured that sufficient reserves of heavy oil remains off-shore in Suriname to keep the refinery at Tout Lui Error profitable.During a meeting with the media and Country Manager of the United States Oil Giant ExxonMobil last Thursday, Minister Trotman said while Government was considering the establishment of an oil refinery here, both Trinidad and Tobago and Suriname had indicated their interest in carrying out such work for Guyana.He added, however, that no official agreement has been made between Guyana and Suriname in this regard.

Kalank cast Did you know Karan Johar wanted Shah Rukh Khan Ajay

first_imgKaran Johar had a different star cast in mind for Kalank initially.InstagramThe movie Kalank has an excellent star cast of Varun Dhawan, Sanjay Dutt, Alia Bhatt, Madhuri Dixit, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sonakshi Sinha. But do you know, producer Karan Johar had a completely different star cast for the film in his mind earlier.KJo had planned to make Kalank 15 years ago, and that time he had stars like Shah Rukh Khan, Ajay Devgn, Rani Mukerji and Kajol in mind as the lead cast of the movie.Karan had made the revelation in his book titled – An Unsuitable Boy, and an excerpt from the same has started doing the rounds on social media.”Anyway, after Kaal I went on to develop Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna. When my father was alive, I was writing a love story set in pre-partition times. But the canvas was too large. It was supposed to have Shah Rukh, Ajay, Rani and Kajol. It was about two homes, and it had a Hindu-Muslim angle. It was a very strong subject, and would be called Kalank,” the excerpt from the book read.

Fate Of Red Flag Law Likely To Rest With Patrick

first_img When the Texas Republican Party held its convention last month, it adopted a platform that staunchly opposed any such measure. The GOP platform certainly doesn’t help the chances of such a law passing. But what’s likely to matter more is the stance of one man.“If Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick is not behind the legislation, it will not become law,” says Mark Jones, professor of political science at Rice University. “Lieutenant Governor Patrick effectively controls what legislation gets considered in the Senate and what legislation passes in the Senate, and if he isn’t supportive of some legislation, then it has no hope whatsoever of actually becoming law, regardless of what Governor Abbott or members of the Texas House believe.”Patrick is heavily favored to win reelection as lieutenant governor this fall. Jones forecasts the November elections will leave Republicans in control of nearly two-thirds of both chambers of the Texas Legislature.Patrick hasn’t publicly stated his position on a potential Red Flag law. He has charged a Senate select committee with determining the merits of such a measure. The committee is scheduled to meet later this month. Ryan Poppe/Texas Public RadioLt. Gov. Dan PatrickGovernor Greg Abbott suggested state lawmakers explore the possibility of a “Red Flag” law, as a way of deterring school shootings. Such a law would let a judge temporarily take away a person’s guns if the gun owner is deemed a threat to himself or others.

New Streaming Strategies From Comcast Viacom Target Subscribers Who Dont Need Netflix

first_imgDespite what Netflix’s success may lead you to believe, the road to riches in streaming isn’t all about subscriptions.As the shift to digital causes the audience for linear TV to shrink, companies in the media space are increasingly looking to generate revenue via advertising-based video on demand (AVOD) services.• NBCUniversal announced last week it plans to launch a streaming service with an ad-supported and ad-free tier in 2020. And during Comcast’s Q4 2018 earnings call on Wednesday, NBCUniversal CEO Steve Burke said the company thinks it “should start and try to gain as much scale as possible with an ad-supported free streaming service,” implying the company is prioritizing the growth of its new streaming service’s free tier over its paid tier.• Viacom on Tuesday announced that it agreed to purchase Pluto TV, an AVOD service, for $340 million. Viacom’s ad business will be bolstered by the 12 million monthly active users and additional commercial inventory that Pluto TV offers. • Hulu lowered the bar for entry to the ad-supported portion of its own subscription plans to $6, revealing new pricing Wednesday that also included a hike to its pay-TV bundle.It makes sense for media players to chase revenue on streaming services via ads, rather than subscriptions, because the SVOD market is getting saturated from super aggregators like Netflix to more niche players.The average U.S. consumer is subscribed to between 2-3 streaming services, and one of those is “almost always” Netflix, according to Lab42 founder Jonathan Pirc, citing an October 2018 survey by Lab42.Netflix has the highest retention rate when compared to its rivals, so this means companies late to the streaming game are more directly competing against other services like Hulu and HBO Now for wallet share when they launch.Even so, some companies new to the streaming game may find it hard to find footing in the SVOD market, as companies like Hulu further lure customers with its award-winning originals. New-to-market services in 2019 with buzzy content like Disney+ will make it even more difficult for companies like NBCU to win wallet share in the SVOD marketplace. This helps explain why during NBCU’s research, the company found most consumers indicated they’d rather endure 3-5 minutes of ads for free access to its service than pay $10 per month.Moreover, companies entering the AVOD game have the opportunity to attract viewers that haven’t signed up for Netflix, which puts itself further out of reach of that segment of the audience by announcing last week its own subscription price hike. Netflix’s service doesn’t show ads, and the company in the past has expressed much hesitation in introducing commercials to its service.And if Comcast and Viacom are lucky, their new streaming offerings will appeal to existing Netflix subscribers looking to maximize their content options, too, particularly for the segment of the population open to paying for 3+ subscriptions. And if Netflix ever flipped on its no-ads policy, its subscriber base would likely shrink as a result — 23% of current Netflix subs said they’d definitely drop the service if it started running commercials, per Hub Entertainment Research. This implies that companies launching or acquiring AVOD services don’t need to worry about competing with an ad-supported Netflix any time soon.The reward for launching a successful AVOD service is becoming increasingly lucrative for players like NBCUniversal and Viacom. Magna predicted ad spend on OTT TV content to grow 40% year-over-year to $2 billion in 2018, for example. Meanwhjle, NBCUniversal projects they can generate nearly $5 per user per month with its 3-to-5 minute per hour ad load on its service, per Variety.This implies that even if just 10% of the 52 million consumers Comcast and Sky reach become regular users of NBCU’s service, NBCU could still see additional ad revenue somewhere in the ballpark of nearly $26 million per month. Building out a new source of ad revenue is especially significant for companies like NBCU and Viacom as brands’ ad dollars follow eyeballs from traditional TV to digital platforms in the future.

June 25, 2018 — IMV, part of the Science and Medicine Group and a market research and business intelligence provider to the imaging industry, announced the category winners of the 2017-18 IMV ServiceTrak in PET Imaging. Philips North America was the winner in the Best Service category, while GE Healthcare came out on top in Best Customer Satisfaction.   Positron emission tomography (PET) imaging is a highly sensitive form of molecular imaging (nuclear medicine) which uses radioactive pharmaceuticals to measure chemical changes occurring in the body before physical signs of disease can be detected. Because of the energy produced by the positron emission, PET is more sensitive than traditional nuclear medicine imaging. Most PET scanners are combined with computed tomography (CT) to receive PET and CT images at the same time, with the PET image showing metabolism and the function of cells and the CT image showing anatomical details. With a combination of these two scanning technologies, a PET-CT scan helps physicians to more accurately diagnose and localize cancer, brain disorders, and some heart disease.In 2017, an estimated 1.9 million clinical PET scans were performed in over 2,400 locations using fixed PET scanners or mobile services. Over 90 percent of these scans were performed:To detect cancer;To determine if cancer has spread;To access the effectiveness of a cancer treatment plan; orTo determine if a cancer has returned after treatment.PET scanners are an essential tool in the early detection and treatment of cancer.IMV produces an annual series of proprietary ServiceTrak Imaging reports derived from extensive phone interviews with imaging professionals in hospital departments and independent imaging centers in the U.S. Imaging professionals are asked to rate their level of satisfaction with the equipment manufacturers, system performance and the service received for their imaging equipment. Satisfaction ratings are collected on a 10-point scale, where 10 equals “excellent” and 1 equals “very poor”. Report analysis is based on the percentage of highly satisfied (%HS) responses which are represented by satisfaction ratings of a 9 or 10 on this scale.The ServiceTrak Imaging awards are presented to the manufacturer with the highest %HS in each of three categories, representing the Industry Best Of: Customer Satisfaction, System Performance and Service. The Best Of Customer Satisfaction award is given to the manufacturer who has the highest %HS responses when asked to rate the likelihood they will purchase again from their current manufacturer. The Best Of System Satisfaction award is given to the manufacturer whose customers have the highest %HS responses when asked to rate their overall system performance. The Best Of Service award is given to the manufacturer whose customers give the highest %HS responses when asked to rate overall OEM service performance.The 2017-18 ServiceTrak PET awards are based on interviews conducted in 2017 with respondents in 275 unique imaging locations having 289 PET systems.For more information: www.imvinfo.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Videos | Cardiac Imaging | July 30, 2019 VIDEO: Assessing Cardiovascular Risk in Ultra-endurance Athletes Nate Bachman, graduate read more News | Enterprise Imaging | July 29, 2019 Philips Announces 10-year Enterprise Informatics Agreement With Centre Hospitalier Régional Universitaire de Nancy Philips and Centre Hospitalier Régional Universitaire (CHRU) de Nancy, a leading academic hospital in the Grand Est… read more Technology | Radiographic Fluoroscopy (RF) | August 09, 2019 Shimadzu Medical Systems Receives FDA 510(k) for FluoroSpeed X1 RF System Shimadzu Medical Systems USA, a subsidiary of Shimadzu Corp., announced they have received U.S. Food and Drug… read more News | PET-CT | August 15, 2019 United Imaging Announces First U.S. Clinical Installation of uExplorer Total-body PET/CT United Imaging announced that its uExplorer total-body positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) system… read more News | Interventional Radiology | July 31, 2019 International Multidisciplinary Group Publishes Recommendations for Personalized HCC Treatment With Y90 TheraSphere New consensus recommendations for personalized treatment for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with BTG’s TheraSphere have… read more Video Player is loading.ITN Assessing Cardiovascular Risk in Ultra-endurance AthletesPlay VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 11:59Loaded: 1.36%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -11:59 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.
