Court being asked to stop dolphin hunts in Japanese village

TOKYO — A court in central Japan is hearing arguments over whether dolphin hunting violates the nation’s animal cruelty laws.The plaintiffs in the case opening Friday are asking the district court in Wakayama prefecture to stop the permits from being issued.Prefectural Gov. Yoshinobu Nisaka issues the permits for the village of Taiji, where the hunts have drawn protests.The 2009 Oscar-winning documentary “The Cove” showed the village’s hunts, where dolphins were chased into a cove and bludgeoned to death. In recent years, they changed their hunting method to suffocation.The plaintiffs, a former Taiji resident and a Japanese conservationist activist, and supporters of the case say the killings remain traumatic and painful.Wakayama conservation official Takashi Uede says the prefecture believes the hunts follow the law.The Associated Press read more

Closing Bell Toronto stock market up slightly after economic worries inflict sharp

TORONTO — The Toronto stock market registered a small gain Monday with traders not inclined to do much after worries about the pace of economic growth last week erased all the TSX’s gains since the beginning of the year.Here are the closing numbersTSX — 12,344.56 +12.71 0.10%S&P 500 — 1,563.07 +9.79 0.63%Dow — 14,613.48 +48.23 0.33%Nasdaq — 3,222.25 +18.39 0.57%The S&P/TSX composite index gained 12.71 points to 12,344.56 following five losing sessions, leaving the main index down about 86 points or 0.7% lower for the year.The Canadian dollar continued to lose ground following a big disappointment in March job figures that were released Friday.The loonie closed down 0.09 of a cent to 98.3 cents US after the Bank of Canada’s business outlook survey indicated Canadian firms have become more pessimistic about the economy and plan to ratchet down investment plans while keeping hiring modest.U.S. markets gained momentum during the afternoon as traders looked ahead of the release of quarterly earnings from resource giant Alcoa Inc. (NYSE:AA) after the close.The Dow Jones industrial average rose 48.23 points to 14,613.48, the Nasdaq composite index was 18.39 points higher at 3,222.25 and the S&P 500 index was ahead 9.79 points at 1,563.07.Alcoa posted earnings per share ex-items of 11 cents versus expectations of eight cents. Revenue of US$5.03 billion missed expectations of $5.88 billion.Alcoa also said global aluminum demand should rise by seven% this year.The release of Alcoa’s earnings is regarded as the start to the quarterly earnings season while the aluminum company itself is regarded as an important gauge of economic growth as its products are used in everything from appliances to vehicles to aircraft.Alcoa shares were up 15 cents to $8.39 by the close, and drifted five cents higher to $8.44 in after-market trading in New York.Blue chips led the way higher on the TSX with the utilities component ahead 0.77%.

(TSX:BBD.B) gained seven cents to $4.The TSX also found relief from a 0.56% rise in the telecom sector as Rogers Communications (TSX:RCI.B) rose 81 cents to $51.69.Commodity prices were generally higher after losing ground last week but resource stocks were generally weak.The energy sector was slightly higher as the June crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange gained 66 cents to US$93.36 a barrel. Prices fell almost five% after data late last week showed that crude in storage in the U.S. was at its highest level since 1990 even though refiners had begun to ramp up gasoline production to get ready for the summer driving season. Canadian Natural Resources (TSX:CNQ) climbed 15 cents to C$31.18.The gold sector was led decliners, down about 1.3% after falling more than seven% last week amid lower prices for bullion and gold stocks under pressure because of rising costs. June bullion in New York slipped $3.40 to US$1,572.50 an ounce. Goldcorp Inc. (TSX:G) was down 40 cents to C$31.93.The base metals component was down 0.18% while May copper gained three cents to US$3.37 a pound after miners in Chile, the world’s biggest producer, said they would announce a nationwide strike on Monday. Economic worries sent copper to eight month lows last week and the mining sector down almost three%. First Quantum Minerals (TSX:FM) gave back 33 cents to C$18.96.The Toronto stock market lost 3.25% last week in the wake of purchasing managers data from China that missed expectations and disappointing reads on the American manufacturing and service sectors. The week was capped off by jobs data from Canada and the U.S. that widely missed expectations, raising doubts about the pace of economic growth and putting fresh pressure on resource stocks.Financials also lost ground as poor data raised concerns that interest rate hikes are further away than thought.“We started off the year with some well-known economists thinking the Bank of Canada could raise interest rates even by 25 or 50 basis points this year,” said Kevin Headland, director portfolio advisory group at Manulife Asset Management.“And (there were) weak economic numbers in January and February again. Canada is barely holding its head above water right now. They might have to lower rates.”New York markets on the other hand have managed to hold on to the strong gains netted so far this year amid a resurgent housing market and continued stimulus measures from the U.S. Federal Reserve. The Dow ended last week flat but is still up 11% year to date.“It’s not that things are so much better (in the U.S.) but it goes back to the old story, Canada does not have a diversified market, it’s where do you find opportunities,” added Headland.As well as a run of earnings this week, investors hope to get a better idea from the U.S. Federal Reserve about whether the central bank plans to withdraw some of its monetary stimulus. Minutes to the last policy meeting of the Fed are due to be published Wednesday.The TSX Venture Exchange dipped 0.46 of a point to 1,041.39.Here’s the news investors were watching today:Bank of Canada says weak economy to make for ‘challenging’ year for businessNever mind Portugal.

At debate Tajik Foreign Minister voices need for UN reform engagement in

The need for reform of the United Nations, illicit drug trafficking and the situation in Afghanistan were among the topics covered in the speech by Tajikistan’s Foreign Minister, Hamrokhon Zarifi, to the UN General Assembly today. “The recent developments in the world proved once again that it is impossible to address global and regional issues without strengthening the central role of the United Nations in the international affairs and without collective initiatives in world politics, with due respect of the norms of international law,” the Foreign Minister told the 67th Assembly’s General Debate, at UN Headquarters in New York. “In this regard, it is becoming obvious that it is necessary to carry out a rational reform of the Organization, as a result of which the renewed United Nations will emerge capable to respond to the developments in the world in a quick and adequate manner, and to effectively meet numerous global challenges and threats of a new generation,” he added. Turning to his country’s southern neighbour, Afghanistan – which will acquire “an exclusive importance not only for the region but for the world” with the departure of the International Security Assistance Force in 2014 – Mr. Zarifi said that its social and economic development will be “the key” for ensuring its stable peace. “For this reason, the international assistance rendered to Afghanistan should be aimed, first and foremost, at its utmost economic rehabilitation, further strengthening of its social sphere, job creation, etc,” he said. “In this regard, realization of projects on construction of railroads, motorways, power transmission lines, gas pipelines and etc. that connect Afghanistan with Tajikistan and other countries of the region is of utmost importance.” The prevention of illicit drug trafficking, the Foreign Minister stated, demands cooperation from the international community. Due to it shared borders with Afghanistan – a major drug-producing country – an estimated 15 per cent of all of Afghanistan’s opiates and 20 per cent of its heroin is trafficked through Tajikistan, according to estimates of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). “It is essential that the international community unite the measures aimed at reducing both the demand and supply of drugs, and integrate the efforts undertaken at the national level into the international strategy for drug control,” he said, adding that Tajikistan has started developing a new anti-narcotics strategy for the 2013-2020 period. In relation to human rights, Mr.Zarifi noted its place, alongside peace, security and development, as one of the pillars of the work of the United Nations, and how Tajikistan seeks a bigger role in this area with a seat on the Geneva-based Human Rights Council for the 2015-2017 period. “Being a signatory to the major international treaties on human rights, Tajikistan, in a consistent manner, undertakes relevant measures aimed at ensuring protection and promotion of human rights in the country,” the Foreign Minister said. Other topics touched upon in his statement to the Assembly included respect for cultural and religious diversity, the harm caused by anti-personnel mines and sustainable development. The Tajik Foreign Minister is one of scores of heads of State and government and other high-level officials who are presenting their views and comments on issues of individual national and international relevance at the Assembly’s General Debate, which ends on 1 October. read more

Civil society has important role in building sustainable future says UN General

In a statement made to the Assembly’s Informal Interactive Hearing ahead of the Third International Conference on Financing for Development, Nicholas Emiliou, Acting President of the General Assembly, explained that the formulation and successful implementation of “an inclusive and transformative” agenda would depend on the key “mobilization of financial resources” from both the private and public sectors. “It is evident that in order to achieve our goals, we need to harness vast resources, skills, knowledge and innovative ideas from all segments of society,” Mr. Emiliou said in a statement made on behalf of Mr. Kutesa. “Civil society has an important role and it should play its part in this endeavour.”Pointing to the upcoming Third International Conference on Financing for Development to be held in Addis Ababa later this year, the Acting President also noted that civil society actors had already been engaged in the conference’s preparatory process but, he added, today’s meeting provided yet “another unique opportunity” for them to “give their input and views” on Addis’ planned outcome document. This year marks wrap up of the landmark UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which world leaders agreed on 15 years ago. There has been significant progress in meeting the targets. For example, global poverty has been halved well ahead of the 2015 deadline; in developing countries, 90 per cent of children now enjoy primary education; the number of people lacking access to improved drinking water has halved, and the fight against malaria and tuberculosis has shown results, according to the UN.But challenges persist, and with the deadline of the MDGs set for the end of this year, the UN will craft a new set of targets known as the sustainable development goals (SDGs). Globally, 73 million young people are looking for work and many more are trapped in exploitative jobs. In recent years, more than two and a half million more children in affluent countries fell into poverty, bringing the total above 76 million.“It is essential that we work towards concrete deliverables and a new global partnership for sustainable development that will support the implementation of the new universal development agenda,” Mr. Emiliou continued. “Let us continue working together for a comprehensive financing framework for sustainable development in order to deliver on the aspirations of our countries, people, and communities worldwide.” read more

Podcast We Tell John Starks Why He Was The JR Smith Of

Below, Neil Paine’s notes for the discussion about Starks. Neil Paine’s quick and dirty analysis of John Starks. Welcome to this week’s episode of Hot Takedown, our podcast where the hot sports takes of the week meet the numbers that prove them right or tear them down. On this week’s show (Aug. 11, 2015), we revisit the career of an NBA cult favorite. As we were preparing topics for the show, Kate Fagan mentioned that it was John Starks’s 50th birthday this week. Starks, one of Kate’s favorites growing up, spent eight years as a member of the New York Knicks (1990-98), where he developed a reputation for fiery play, dunked over Michael Jordan and went 2-for-18 from the field (and 0-for-10 in the fourth quarter) in Game 7 of the 1994 NBA Finals. To celebrate, we look back at his career and how modern analytics would judge him. Oh, also, John Starks calls in, and we tell him how he should feel about himself.Also this week, a look at how the Blue Jays may have become the best team in baseball, and our Significant Digit of the week: Petr Cech had a rough first game for Arsenal in the Premier League, performing three standard deviations below the league average.Stream the episode by clicking the play button, or subscribe using one of the podcast clients we’ve linked to above. More: Apple Podcasts | ESPN App | RSS One of the players most similar to Starks — both statistically and in Starks’s own mind — is former Knick (and current free agent) J.R. Smith. Starks passed more, and Smith is a more efficient shooter, but the two had similar rates of usage, steals and overall effectiveness. Hot Takedown And some things we learned researching his career through the lens of advanced stats:Starks was pretty good (nearly one standard deviation better than average) in four advanced statistical categories: usage rate, assist percentage, steal percentage and turnover percentage.Despite his self-professed defensive focus and participation in one of the most suffocating defenses ever, the metrics are inconclusive when it comes to Starks’s own defense. In Box Plus/Minus, he rates below average, while Jeremias Engelmann’s emulated plus/minus ratings from the ’90s consider him one of the decade’s better defensive guards. Starks was something of a trail-blazer for the 3-point shot, which has now taken over the game. When Starks was playing his best seasons, the average NBA player attempted a 3-pointer on roughly 11 percent of his shots, while Starks took a 3 on about 40 percent of his shots (a rate that ranked seventh among his contemporaries). Fast-forward to 2015, and 27 percent of all shots are 3-pointers. If you’re a fan of our podcasts, be sure to subscribe on Apple Podcasts and leave a rating/review. That helps spread the word to other listeners. And get in touch by email, on Twitter or in the comments. Tell us what you think, send us hot takes to discuss and tell us why we’re wrong.

There could be thousands Surgeon who carried out unnecessary double mastectomies convicted

first_img Image: Shutterstock/Bojan Milinkov 18,492 Views http://jrnl.ie/3365076 Updated 7.26pmA 59-YEAR-OLD breast surgeon who carried out “wholly unnecessary procedures” on patients was convicted of malicious wounding at Nottingham Crown Court today.Ian Paterson was found guilty of performing the sometimes radical surgeries on nine women and one man between 1997 and 2011 at his West Midlands practice.In all, he was convicted of 17 counts of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm and three counts of unlawful wounding.In most cases, he told the victims that they were at risk of developing breast cancer.The procedures he carried out on them, however, were not necessary. Some of the surgeries included the removal of breast tissue and double mastectomies.Victims detailed the physical and psychological effects that these procedures had on them to the court.One victim, who became pregnant in the years following a procedure, said she was told by Paterson that she would be unable to breast feed her child, but this was not the case.Specialist prosecutor Pamela Jain said: “Ian Paterson carried out procedures which no reasonable surgeon would have considered justified and he knew the operations were unnecessary.The prosecution evidence showed how Paterson breached the trust of his victims by convincing them to undergo surgical procedures.She also praised the victims who “bravely came forward to give their evidence which was of a very personal nature”.Paterson will be sentenced some time in the near future.The Guardian reported that the NHS has so far paid out around £18 million, including £9.5 million in damages relating to Paterson’s cases.Over 250 patients have received payouts so far, and it is believed that although Paterson was only convicted in the case of 10 victims, there could be as many as 1,000 people who received unnecessary surgery.Read: ‘This wasn’t about him not getting a game’: Father denies son getting dropped a factor in court caseRead: €40 million luxury hotel gets green light on site of iconic Stephen’s Green building 5 Comments Short URL By Sean Murray Share Tweet Email1 ‘There could be thousands’: Surgeon who carried out ‘unnecessary double mastectomies’ convicted The prosecutor said Ian Paterson knew the operations were unnecessary.

Une enquête préliminaire est en cours.Cette femme, dont le père âgé de 75 ans est mort à la Faute-sur-Mer le 28 février dernier lors de la tempête Xynthia, a déposé plainte le 26 avril. Alors que d’autres plaintes pourraient être déposées dans les jours à venir, les gendarmes de la section de recherche d’Angers et de la brigade de recherche des Sables d’Olonne se sont vu confier une enquête préliminaire qui est à l’heure actuelle toujours en cours. “Nous sommes dans une phase de constatations sur place et d’étude de la réglementation en vigueur” a expliqué Thierry Dran, procureur de la République des Sables-d’Olonne.Par ailleurs, l’ancienne ministre Corinne Lepage, avocate de l’Association des victimes des inondations de la Faute-sur-Mer et des environs (Avif), a annoncé dimanche qu’elle “devrait déposer plainte au pénal très rapidement” et “se constituer partie civile”.

The Ultimate Super Smash Bros Character Guide Pit and Dark Pit

first_imgStay on target Pit Ascends!Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is huge. Not just in terms of hype and importance and sales potential, but just in terms of sheer stuff. The Nintendo Switch mascot fighter features over a hundred stages, nearly a thousand songs, and too many Pokemon and items and Assist Trophies to think of crammed onto a cartridge you can plan on the go or on a TV. When you have as many big franchises as Nintendo, putting them all in one game will make that game is very big boy indeed.But the biggest, most exciting thing about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is its mind-blowing, heartwarming roster of playable characters. Fighting games pride themselves not just on the strength of their mechanics but the strength of its fighters, especially in a crossover fighters like this. And Super Smash Bros. Ultimate crushes all rivals by including every single playable character from the across the four previous games in the twenty-year-old series. Include the new combatants and so far we have over 70 fighters to wrap our heads around. We’re excited, but we’re also intimidated. So to get ready for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, every day, character by character, we’re creating the ultimate guide to all of its characters. Today’s fighters: Pit and Dark Pit. Who Are They?Although his game is called Kid Icarus, this good little angel boy is named Pit. As games, the original Kid Icarus on NES and its Game Boy sequel aren’t that great. They’re like mash-ups of Mario and Zelda and Metroid but somehow worse than all three. That said, between its weird sense of humor, cool Greek-inspired look, and long hiatus until Kid Icarus: Uprising on 3DS, the series is a cult classic for Nintendo fans.Smash HistoryWhen Pit first appeared in Super Smash Bros. Brawl he sported a radical new anime redesign that made you forget how retro his original game was. And Smash creator Masahiro Sakurai must have become so enamored with this version of the character that he then directed Kid Icarus: Uprising, which first featured Pit’s antihero rival Dark Pit (inspired by a Brawl costume). Pit’s changes in Uprising subsequently flowed back into Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS, like the decision to include Dark Pit as a full-fledged Echo Fighter.What Looks New in Ultimate?Pit is a lovable but bland little simpleton in his games, so I guess it only makes sense for him to be a good but not spectacular character in Smash. Even giving him showy new weapons taken from Uprising didn’t give him much of a competitive edge. In Ultimate, Pit seems improved but basically unchanged. And Dark Pit is largely the same but the consensus is his faster and stronger but less agile arrows are a bad trade-off.Our Hopes?What we really want is an HD remake of Kid Icarus: Uprising for Switch as more people need to experience Sakurai’s bonkers, huge in scope, Metal Gear-esque script about the nature of gods and their relationship to humanity. But as for Pit and Dark Pit in Smash Ultimate? We’re pretty much good.Super Smash Bros. Ultimate releases Dec. 7 for Nintendo Switch. Until we can play more for ourselves, changes we talk about here are mostly speculation. For more thoughts check out our Smash hands-on as well as cool Switch games to play that aren’t Smash Bros., because those definitely exist.View as: One Page Slides1/761. Read Mario’s Guide2.

Early Run Kenai River Chinook Reported As Good

Guterres seeks disarmament on 73 yrs of Nagasaki tragedy

first_imgUN Secretary General Antonio Guterres offers a flower wreath for the victims of the 1945 atomic bombing during a ceremony commemorating the 73rd anniversary of the bombing at Nagasaki`s Peace Park, western Japan, in this photo taken by Kyodo on 9 August 2018. ReutersNagasaki marked the anniversary of the world’s second atomic bombing Thursday with the United Nations’ chief and the city’s mayor urging global leaders to take concrete steps toward world nuclear disarmament.Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, the first United Nations chief to visit Nagasaki, said fears of nuclear war are still present 73 years after the Nagasaki and Hiroshima bombings and that they should never be repeated. He raised concerns about the slowing effort to denuclearise, saying existing nuclear states are modernising their arsenals.”Disarmament processes have slowed and even come to a halt,” Guterres told the audience at the Nagasaki peace park. “Here in Nagasaki, I call on all countries to commit to nuclear disarmament and to start making visible progress as a matter of urgency.” Then he added: “Let us all commit to making Nagasaki the last place on earth to suffer nuclear devastation.”The peace and nuclear disarmament movement, started by survivors of the atomic bombings, has spread around the world but frustration over the slow progress led to last year’s adoption of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.Japan, despite being the only country in the world to have suffered nuclear attacks, has not signed the treaty, because of its sensitive position as an US ally protected by its nuclear umbrella.Nagasaki mayor Tomihisa Taue urged Japan’s government to do more to lead nuclear disarmament, especially in the region to help advance the efforts to achieve a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula. He said citizens of the atomic-bombed cities are hoping to see North Korea denuclearised.Taue said he hoped Japan’s government would take the opportunity to realise a nuclear-free north-east Asia, including Japan and the Korean Peninsula.Taue urged Tokyo to sign the treaty and “fulfill its moral obligation to lead the world towards denuclearization.” He said more than 300 local assemblies have adopted resolutions calling on Japan to sign and ratify the treaty.Japan seeks to close the gaps between nuclear and non-nuclear states to eventually achieve a nuclear-free world, said prime minister Shinzo Abe, repeating almost the same phrase he used in his speech three days ago in Hiroshima.The bombing of Nagasaki on 9 August 1945, was the second US nuclear attack on Japan, killing 70,000 people, three days after the bomb dropped on Hiroshima killed 140,000. They were followed by Japan’s surrender, ending World War II.last_img

Appreciating a man of God and a pillar of strength

first_imgWebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite Sinai Ministries had their ‘Pastor Appreciation Day’ on Sunday at the church in Centenary Road. The contribution one makes towards the lives of people outside one’s own realm is indeed a remarkable act that cannot go unrecognised. Every recipient of such an act must take every opportunity to acknowledge the person who rekindled their light or who lit the flame within.Members of Sinai Ministries therefore paid tribute to a man of God, Pastor Duran Kally, for being a pillar of strength, a spiritual spark, a beacon of hope and a guiding force in their lives. “Appreciation to Pastor Duran allows us, the followers of Christ, to impress the values and teachings he imparts into our lives, to indicate that his dedication and service to the kingdom is indeed a priceless act that is recognised for its sincerity, intensity and worth,” is the message from the church.The congregation says Pastor Duran has been the voice of calm in the midst of chaos, a stabiliser in trying situations, and has been the source of wisdom in many of the decisions members had to make when faced with a crossroads in their lives. “His intuition and discernment has allowed the congregation to experience the promises of God and ensured that we build on our faith.” The church honoured him for going beyond the call of duty, for being a steadfast example and an unwavering ambassador of Jesus Christ. It was said that “Pastor Duran has displayed humility as strength, humanity as priceless, and the word of God as the true rock in our lives… May you continue to be an excellent representative and champion of the higher calling.” The congregation also want to thank Mount View Lodge, Remed Pharmacy, and every leader and member of Sinai for enhancing the appreciation service and allowing it to be a monumental occasion.DID YOU KNOW?Click on the words highlighted in red to read more on this and related topics.If you are reading this on your cellphone and there are telephone numbers provided in the text, you can call these simply by clicking on them.To receive news links via WhatsApp.For the latest news, visit our webpage or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
