Halifax Hosts International Sail Training Conference for First Time

first_imgClose to 370 tall ship owners, operators and sail trainees are in Halifax today, Nov. 14, for the 2008 International Sail Training and Tall Ships Conference. Two thirds of the delegates, from 26 countries, are attending from outside North America. Delegates include youth sail trainers and representatives from ports that host Tall Ships events. This is the first time the conference has been held outside Europe. The conference, which runs today and Saturday, is also the first joint Sail Training International and American Sail Training Association annual conference. Premier Rodney MacDonald will open the conference and a resolution acknowledging the significance of the conference will be read in the legislature. “Tall ships occupy a important place in our province’s history and tall ships festivals continue to inspire Nova Scotians, just as they attract thousands of visitors and contribute to our economy,” said Premier MacDonald. “We’re very pleased to welcome delegates from around the world to this conference, and look forward to the festival this summer.” Keynote speaker, World Ocean Observatory director Peter Neill, is also executive director of the Ocean Classroom Foundation that owns and operates three sail training schooners. Mr. Neill will take the stage from at 9 a.m. and later join the panel discussion Delivering Sail Training as Part of a Long-term Personal Development Program. “Welcoming this world-class conference to our waterfronts for the first time speaks to the knowledge base and experience that we have right here in Nova Scotia,” says Colin MacLean, president and CEO of Waterfront Development Corporation Limited. “Sharing real-life examples of what works well, what doesn’t, and building those contacts is priceless.” Agenda topics range from medicine at sea and effective sail training programs to search and rescue case studies and a session for young sail trainers and Halifax paralympic gold medalist, Paul Tingley, who will speak on the final day of the conference. The conference, at the Marriott Harbourfront Hotel, will conclude with presentation of 2008 Sail Training Awards and the gala dinner, hosted by the Waterfront Development Corporation Limited.

Duty to consult doesnt equal a First Nations veto over energy resource

first_img(Photo of a recent anti-pipeline protest in New Brunswick. APTN/file photo)APTN National News OTTAWA—New Brunswick Premier Brian Gallant says the duty to consult with First Nations on natural resource and energy projects does not give a veto to those Indigenous communities.Gallant, whose province will be the end-point for TransCanada’s proposed Energy East pipeline, said the duty to consult must be met whenever projects infringe on the rights and territories of First Nation communities, but that does not include the power to veto.“I think it’s important for us to recognize that there’s not a veto that comes with a duty to consult,” said Gallant. “There’s a duty to consult, a duty to accommodate if ever their rights would be infringed by development of natural resources or energy projects….That’s something that has been upheld and made very clear by the Supreme Court of Canada. And, of course, it’s the right thing to do as well.”Gallant partly won the last provincial election because he promised a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing following intense 2013 demonstrations and confrontations between an exploration company, the RCMP and resident of the Mi’kmaq community of Elsipogtog and supporters from other First Nations along with area Acadian and Anglophone residents.Gallant said consultation with First Nations is key to ensuring the success of new energy and natural resource projects.“We’re also going to have to continually show them that we’re doing it in a sustainable and responsible way,” said Gallant, who was speaking to reporters before Monday’s Ottawa meeting between premiers and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau ahead of the upcoming climate change conference in Paris.news@aptn.ca@APTNNewslast_img read more

India to raise removal of Thondas name from nameboards in Sri Lanka

Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj promised to look into the removal of Sri Lankan Tamil leader Savumiamoorthy Thondaman’s name from the name-boards of Sri Lanka’s Government institutions, the Times of India reported.“Thiru @mkstalin – We will take up this matter with the Government of Sri Lanka,” tweeted Swaraj in response to DMK leader MK Stalin’s request that she raise the matter with the neighbouring country. Stalin urged Swaraj to find an early solution to the issue, to ensure that the “name and fame of the great leader is not in any way disrespected.” (Colombo Gazette) In his letter to Swaraj, the DMK leader charged that “the government of Sri Lanka has miserably failed to reciprocate the goodwill of India.”He accused the Sri Lankan government of acting against the Indian Tamil population. Thondaman, a Sri Lankan politician, “fought for the rights and dignity of the Tamil workers” of the country, Stalin said in his letter to the minister. Stalin added that Thondaman “contributed to the welfare of Indian Tamils during his tenure as Minister” in various Sri Lankan governments. read more

Health sciences initiative helps Brock students Cope Care Connect

Brock Health Sciences student Besra Mohamed is part of the Cope Care Connect mental health program. The numbers are startling.A survey of 1343 Brock students found that about 60 per cent of them felt overwhelmed when they started this term. First year or fourth year, there was little difference in the numbers.For a third-year health sciences class, led by Prof. Kelli-an Lawrance, it was confirmation that something needed to be done to help students through challenging times.So the class has launched Cope Care Connect, a month-long, online and face-to-face campaign targeting first-year students, though available to everyone, to make them aware of the mental health resources available to them on campus. The campaign is in partnership with Student Health Services and supported by the student life fee.“A lot of first-year students are disconnected,” said Stephanie Klok, a health sciences student involved in promoting Cope Care Connect. “The resources are here but they don’t know they’re here. We’re also trying to de-stigmatize accessing them.”Through information tables, a website, YouTube and Facebook page, students are encouraged to share their experiences, good and bad, learn effective ways to cope with the demands they face, and find other positive sources of help and inspiration right here at Brock.Contests are also being held to inspire random acts of kindness to help boost the spirits of others while leaving those committing the kind actions feeling as though they’re contributing to the betterment of the Brock community.It’s those simple things that can change a student’s course, improving grades and even keeping them from dropping out of school, explained student Hailea Squires, who’s helping Klok promote the campaign.“Everyone feels like a failure at some point in their university lives,” Squires said. “Not everything goes as planned. Rolling with the punches is what resilience is and that’s what we’re trying to inspire.”This isn’t the first time that a class of Lawrance’s has tackled an important issue hands-on. In the past, classes have hosted health workshops for first-year students and have presented educational displays at Brock’s annual health fair.Cope Care Connect, however, is the biggest project yet that students in this particular course, program planning and evaluation, have taken on.In all, the class was divided into 11 committees, taking on different roles and responsibilities to make Cope Care Connect happen. Lawrance said she’s excited to see how her students have combined their theoretical knowledge with their own personal understanding of student life to develop Cope Care Connect.“The students have put an amazing amount of work into planning this project,” Lawrance said. “They are extremely dedicated to the issue of student well-being, and are determined to make the Brock community a healthier place for their peers. They are an impressive group.”To learn more, a Cope Care Connect table will be set up Feb. 26-27 and March 5-6 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Mackenzie Chown A Block hallway. read more

Brock University relaunches Tech Ed program

After 25 years in the restaurant industry, Jeff White decided it was time to teach the next generation of culinary masters.His decision to enrol in Brock University’s Technological Education program quickly paid off. The Burlington native, who started the Philthy McNasty’s restaurant chain, graduated with a 97 per cent average in 2012 and is now teaching at St. Igatius of Loyola Catholic Secondary School in Oakville.“Those techniques I learned at Brock, I use every day,” he said. “I know they taught me well because of the success I’m having with the students.”White told his story Thursday as Brock’s Faculty of Education held an event at the Hamilton campus to re-launch the Tech Ed program after a one-year hiatus.The updated Tech Ed program, with a new curriculum and a new blended delivery format, will hold its first classes in January, 2017 with a focus on helping tradespeople get a degree while continuing to work.The former Tech Ed program was put on hold at the end of the 2014/15 school year because of a Ministry of Education-mandated change in Teacher Education that saw programs increase in length from one to two years. There was a concern across the province that tradespeople wouldn’t be able to commit to taking two years off of work to get a Tech Ed degree. The result was that five of the seven universities in Ontario offering the program subsequently cut it.The Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities put a call out for new Tech programs last year, and Brock successfully landed a grant for its new program.The re-launched Tech Ed offering is a combination of online and in-class learning, and is supported by Queen’s, Windsor, Niagara College, Fanshawe, Conestoga, Canadore, Mohawk and local school boards.Tony DiPetta, Chair of the Technological Education Consortium of Ontario, called it a “new era in Tech Ed teacher preparation.”DiPetta said technological education in elementary and secondary school is vital in helping Ontario youths along the road to careers in everything from construction, hospitality and transportation to green industries.“Tech Ed teachers with experience in these trades and a passion for teaching are essential,” he said. “Experience matters and supporting tradespeople with the requisite skills and passion for becoming teachers requires adapting the Tech Ed program to these tradespeople’s unique set of circumstances.”The Brock Technological Education program allows qualified tradespeople to complete their teacher preparation program partially online, partially in the more traditional face-to-face classroom setting and partially through e-learning on evenings and weekends.David Siegel, Interim Dean of Brock’s Faculty of Education, said Tech Ed is important because of a skilled trade shortage and an expected increase in demand for technology teachers.“This is a great opportunity for Brock to fill a need. Students frequently do not pursue the trades even though there are excellent job opportunities. We need more qualified Tech Ed teachers in schools so that students will see these opportunities,” says Siegel.Added Bob Moulton, Technological Education Co-ordinator: “When more tradespersons and professionals are teaching in our secondary schools, it will underline the importance of the Ministry of Education’s four pathways ­ workplace, trades, community college and/or university. All pathways are key to the success of students.”Registration for the new Tech Ed program is expected to open in early March, 2016, with the first classes being on Jan. 3, 2017. Candidates will graduate from the 16-month continuous program in June, 2018.Thursday’s event also gave Brock University’s Faculty of Education the opportunity to recognize United Association Local 67 for a major contribution it made to the faculty in 2012. The gift of more than $75,000 was used for financial awards for students, as well as to upgrade the technology in the classrooms that will be used for the new Tech Ed program. read more

Baseball Post is sharp in return offense not found as Buckeyes drop

Ohio State senior pitcher Jake Post releases a pitch in the first inning against Purdue on April 2, 2017 at Bill Davis Stadium. Credit: Edward Sutelan | Lantern reporterThis might have been the Sunday game between Ohio State and Purdue, but this had all the makings of a Friday night battle of aces as the Buckeyes lost 2-1 in the weekend finale.The loss dropped OSU’s conference record to 1-5, and overall record to 11-16 on the season. Purdue improves to 3-3 in Big Ten play and 15-12 overall.OSU coach Greg Beals said he was proud of the way his pitchers delivered on the mound, but was disappointed that his team was unable to find more success at the plate in a Sunday matchup, games that are typically more of an offensive showcase.“We gave up one earned run on the day, on Sunday, and you give up two runs total with the one unearned run. That should be enough to win a baseball game on a Sunday,” Beals said.He attributed the team’s inability to deliver in key moments of the game to a lack of confidence in themselves and the game plan.“We were absolutely in situations to win today’s baseball game,” Beals said. “We’ve got to find a way for our guys to compete with some confidence, and that’s what we’re missing right now is that sense of confidence, that belief that you’re going to find a way to win a baseball game.”The game was scoreless until the top of the fourth inning, when redshirt senior first baseman Zach Ratcliff came up to bat with runners on the corners. Ratcliff drove a sacrifice fly out to left field to score the runner from third and give OSU the 1-0 lead.Post ran into some trouble for the only time all afternoon in the top of the sixth inning with runners on second and third and one away.Freshman center fielder Skyler Hunter drove the 2-2 offering from Post up the middle, scoring both runners on base and putting Purdue ahead 2-1.One of the best scoring opportunities for the Buckeyes came in the bottom of the sixth inning. With runners on second and third and no one out, junior designated hitter Noah McGowan struck out and was thrown out on the dropped third strike.After McGowan was thrown out at first, Barnwell attempted to pick the pocket of the Boilermakers and steal home, but was nailed at the plate on the throw by the first baseman. A flyout followed to end the inning.Barnwell’s attempted steal was an example of the Buckeyes straying away from their game plan, Beals said.“We came out of the system today on that play at the plate. Just trying too hard,” he said.The Buckeyes again had a chance to tie the game up in the bottom of the eighth inning with runners on first and second and nobody out. Two strikeouts, including one on a bunt attempt, and a flyout stranded the runners and again thwarted the Buckeyes chance.Senior shortstop and co-captain Jalen Washington said the team missed a pair of golden opportunities to tie up the game and the team’s inability to execute in those positions came down to straying from their typical approach at the plate.“We’ve just got to stick to our approach; (we were) trying to do a little bit too much today it seemed like,” he said. “We had a good amount of opportunities today with guys in scoring positions with one or no outs and we just didn’t execute. So we’ve just got to do a better job of execution and that starts in the mental game.”Though the offense for OSU struggled, Post was sharp after missing back-to-back games with a back injury. The fifth-year starting pitcher gave the Buckeyes six solid innings with two runs allowed (one earned) on five hits, no walks and five strikeouts.Post was satisfied with how he pitched in today’s game, though he felt “pretty angry” his team was unable to come away with the win against Purdue.“I was able to hit with the fastball and command the curveball pretty well,” Post said. “It sucks; we haven’t lost a series to Purdue in a while and it’s not fun.”The Buckeyes host Kent State at 6:35 p.m. on Wednesday, their final home game before hitting the road for their next Big Ten series at Penn State the following weekend. Beals is not looking past the game against Kent State to the next conference series and said that matchup will be a tough game for his team.“Kent’s solid and they’re a good ball club and they’ll come in here with a lot of energy and a lot of confidence,” Beals said. “They believe they’re the best baseball school in the state of Ohio, and they’re going to come in here on Wednesday night trying to prove that and it’s an opportunity for us to defend the T-H-E that we represent.” read more

Steam des données personnelles se retrouvent sur le web

first_imgSteam : des données personnelles se retrouvent sur le webSteam, par la voix de son fondateur et PDG Gabe Newell, confirme que le piratage des forums de novembre dernier a aussi permis le vol de données utilisateurs, dont des numéros de cartes de crédit.La plateforme de distribution de jeux vidéo Steam a été victime d’un piratage en novembre dernier. Ses forums ont été attaqués ce qui a du contraindre Steam à fermer ses outils communautaires durant quelques jours. On pensait l’affaire close jusqu’à ce message de Gabe Newell, PDG de Valve, société à laquelle appartient Steam, qui révèle que l’attaque a fait plus de dégâts que la simple perte de messages.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?”Récemment, nous avons appris qu’il est probable que les intrus aient obtenu une copie du fichier de sauvegarde contenant les transactions effectuées sur Steam entre 2004 et 2008. Ce fichier de sauvegarde contenait les noms d’utilisateurs, les adresses email, les adresses encryptées de facturation et les informations encryptées des cartes bancaires”, confirme Newell sur le site de Steam. Même si pour lui rien n’est absolument certain, il préfère avertir ses utilisateurs et les inciter à la prudence: “Nous n’avons aucune évidence nous permettant de penser que les informations bancaires encryptées ou que les adresses de facturation (également encryptées) aient été compromises. Cependant, comme je vous en informais en novembre, il convient de surveiller l’activité de vos cartes bancaires et/ou de crédit.”Pour mieux contrôler l’activité de son compte, Gabe Newell encourage tous les joueurs à activer l’option Steam Guard sur leur compte. Ce système, rappelle Numerama, permet de sécuriser le compte en demandant par mail une autorisation de l’utilisateur principal pour chaque connexion d’un autre ordinateur. De quoi permettre, même en cas d’intrusion, de bloquer l’achat de contenus par un pirate. Gabe Newell conclut son message en se voulant rassurant pour sa large communauté de joueurs: “L’enquête poursuit son cours et nous travaillons avec les autorités compétentes. Certains états nécessitent un mode de communication plus formel et vous recevrez l’information en conséquence mais je souhaitais vous tenir informé de l’évolution de la situation.”Le 13 février 2012 à 13:20 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Fabian Ruiz discusses all things Napoli

first_imgAccording to the Spaniard, he joined the Partenopei because he was advised by the legendary Italian manager’s son Davide AncelottiNapoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz has revealed how the son of Carlo Ancelotti, Davide Ancelotti, helped him get to the Italian Lega Serie A as part of the Partenopei.“At the start, I suffered an injury which held me back for three weeks and then it wasn’t easy to break into the team, my teammates were doing very well. I’m better now and I’m happy,” he was quoted by Football Italia.“It’s going really well with Carlo Ancelotti, he’s a great Coach. He’s calm and close to the players.”“He rarely gets angry, but on the pitch, I’m often close to his technical area and when he does… it’s dangerous!”Sacchi explains Sarri, Conte, and Ancelotti Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Arrigo Sacchi talked about how Sarri has a tougher time at Juventus than Conte at Inter; while Ancelotti’s “blood is boiling” at Napoli.Arrigo Sacchi…“Did his son recommend me? It’s true, Davide was engaged to a girl from Seville who he met in Madrid, and when he visited her he’d go to watch Betis and Sevilla matches,” he explained.“He saw me play on those occasions. When I met his fiancée, I thanked her.”“It’s a more direct and quicker style of football here, but now that I’m playing regularly I feel good. The players are strong, the quality is very similar and in the end, there is not a huge difference,” he added.“I’m learning the language little-by-little, it’s not as hard as it seems at the start.”last_img read more
