Lisa Bigjohn ready to tell her sisters story again

first_imgChris StewartAPTN News SundayIt’s been 17 years since Lisa Bigjohn lost her sister – and she’s getting to tell her story — again, this time to the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls. She’s spent that time coping with the loss and raising awareness about missing and murdered Indigenous women.It’s been a tough slog.“It’s just very hard some days,” Bigjohn said of the daily fight to stay strong.“I try not to think about it – how she was murdered and how she must have been begging for her life.”Her sister Mona Lee Wilson was murdered by serial killer Robert Pickton of B.C. In fact, Wilson was his last victim before he was captured and convicted of killing six women, although he was suspected of the murders of more than 20.To keep the memory of her sister alive, Bigjohn testified in 2013 at a Special Committee on Violence Against Indigenous Women in Canada in Vancouver.She says it wasn’t a good experience.“I was one of the families that was pushed aside,” she said. “Nothing came of it.”The final report of that committee, struck by the Harper government, was criticized as being inadequate and ignoring the recommendations from victims – including calls for a national inquiry.It left a bad taste in the mouths of many families who went to Ottawa to testify – including Bigjohn’s.Now, she’s putting that disappointment aside and preparing to testify again – this time before the national inquiry when it starts in Edmonton the week of Nov. 6.“I’m going to do what I have to do because I’m sick and tired of being ignored.”Bigjohn’s daughter, Susan Robinson, will be at her side – just like she was in 2013.“I just want the next time for people to be treated equally,” Robinson said. “I would like my mom not to be judged, considering what my Auntie Mona went through.“It put a lot on my mom, and I don’t want her to experience that again.”Contact Chris here: cstewart@aptn.calast_img read more

Security Council extends terms of judges on UN war crimes tribunals

The Council, in two separate resolutions that were adopted unanimously, urged both tribunals “to take all possible measures to complete their work expeditiously,” and expressed its determination to support their efforts in this regard. The so-called “completion strategy” of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), which is based in The Hague, requires it to finish trials of first instance by 2009, and then start downsizing in 2010. Among the decisions taken today, the Council extended the term of office of eight permanent judges at the ICTY and 10 ad litem, or temporary, judges until 31 December 2010, or until the completion of the cases to which they are assigned.In addition, the Council decided, on the request of the President of the ICTY, that the Secretary-General may appoint additional temporary judges to complete existing trials or conduct additional trials. The International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR), which is based in the Tanzanian town of Arusha, is also aiming to finish first-instance trials by the end of 2009. The Tribunal was created in November 1994 to prosecute people responsible for genocide and other serious violations of international humanitarian law committed in Rwanda that year. Some 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus were murdered, mostly by machete, in just 100 days. The Council decided, among other matters, to extend the term of office of five permanent judges at the ICTR and 11 temporary judges until 31 December 2010, or until the completion of the cases to which they are assigned if sooner. Reporting to the Council last month on their activities, officials from both tribunals stressed that the cooperation and assistance of Member States remains crucial if the courts are to successfully fulfil their mandates to bring those responsible for the most serious crimes to justice. 7 July 2009The Security Council today extended the terms of the judges serving on the United Nations war crimes tribunals set up to deal with the 1994 Rwandan genocide and the Balkan conflicts of the 1990s, so they can complete remaining cases by the deadline set for the courts’ work. read more

Terror group behind Sri Lanka bombing wanted separate Islamic confederate in region

Similarly, the Sri Lanka link was found by NIA in its 33/2016 FIR lodged in Coimbatore. In this case, six IS suspects — Mohammed Ashiq A, Ismail S, Samsudeen, Mohammed Salauddin S, Jafar Shadik Ali and Shahul Hameed have been named. They were in touch with Hashim and videos recovered from them gave a hint to agencies about a big terror plan in Sri Lanka, investigators claimed.The NIA is now is re-examining documents and evidence collected by it while probing IS modules in the southern states to see if Hashim had radicalised other Indian IS members as well. The central agency has so far arrested over 70 IS members since 2014 from different states but maximum number of youngsters influenced by IS ideology are from Kerala and Tamil Nadu. The IS on Tuesday owned up the Easter Sunday bombing in the island nation that killed more than 350 people. Indian Central agencies responsible for countering the influence of Islamic State in India have found that Sri Lanka-based National Towheed Jama’at (NTJ), a Tamil Nadu-based outfit and some people from Kerala were in regular touch for over a year to create a “separate Islamic confederation” in the region, a counterterrorism official claimed, the Hindustan Times reported.The official, however, said the Tamil Nadu-based organisation doesn’t seem to be involved in Sri Lanka attacks but it was in touch with radical elements, an angle which needs to be probed further. The National Investigation Agency had claimed last year that over a dozen IS recruits from Tamil Nadu and Kerala had either travelled to Sri Lanka to get radical Islamic lessons before moving to Islamic State-held territory in Nangarhar province (Afghanistan) or were in touch with Hashim for Jehadi activities, as first reported by HT.Those who travelled to Sri Lanka include Ashfak Majeed from Kasargod (went to Sri Lanka in February 2016 along with his wife and daughter), Abdul Rashid Abdulla from Kozhikode (went to SL with his wife and daughter in 2016) and Palakkad resident Bestin Vincent who left with his wife in December 2015. They all were investigated by NIA following a first information report (FIR) number 04/2016 was registered in Mumbai. The NTJ was led by Maulvi Zahran Bin Hashim, the alleged mastermind of Sunday attacks. He blew himself up at Shangri La hotel in Colombo, primary investigations have revealed. The Indian agencies are also working on a Bangladeshi link to the-IS inspired modules that have tried or are trying to establish a base in south India. read more

Britain has more nonbelievers than ever before as Church of England Christians

first_imgBritain is losing its religion, research has found, as the proportion of non-believers is the highest it has ever been. More than half of the population has no faith and the share of the population who say they are Church of England Christians has fallen to just 15 per cent – the lowest ever recorded. Just three per cent of those aged 18 to 24 said they belonged to the Church of England, while the proportion overall of non-Christians has tripled from two to six per cent.Church of England leaders said the findings were “troubling”, but expressed optimism that the church could still attract some of the 53 per cent who said they had no religion. The Bishop of Liverpool, the Rt Revd Paul Bayes, said: “In this modern world people are more willing to be honest and say they have ‘no religion’ rather than casually saying they are ‘CofE’.  This honesty is welcome.”Of course the latest BSA figures bring a continuing challenge to the churches, to speak clearly of our faith into a sceptical and plural world. But saying ‘no religion’ is not the same as a considered atheism. People’s minds, and hearts, remain open.”But Humanists UK chief executive Andrew Copson said the figures were proof that the Church was undergoing an “ongoing and probably irreversible collapse in adherents”. “It is long overdue that the Government woke up to the demographic reality of today’s Britain and recognises that ever-increasing state funding for religion, and public emphasis on the activities of religious groups, is the reverse of what the public wants,” he said. The proportion of believers is also falling among older demographics, though the figures much higher than among the young. Half of those aged 55 to 64 said they had no religion, the first time religious people have not been in the majority in this age group.  Of the overall six per cent belonging to other faiths, half were Muslim and a third were Hindu, with Jewish, Sikh, Buddhist and other groups all smaller. The figures from the British Social Attitudes Survey done by the National Centre for Social Research were first produced in 1983. In that year 40 per cent of the population identified as Church of England, a figure which has been steadily declining ever since. More than two-thirds of the population said they were Christian. This has now fallen to 41 per cent. However the proportion of “other” Christians, including Pentecostal and Methodist groups, has stayed exactly the same at 17 per cent, and the proportion of Roman Catholics has shifted only slightly from 10 per cent to 9 per cent. This is thought to have been partly fuelled by immigrant communities. Denominations such as Pentecostal churches, attended by those from areas such as west Africa, are among the fastest-growing. Eastern European immigrants are also thought to have kept the proportion of Catholics steady over the past 30 years.  Saying ‘no religion’ is not the same as a considered atheism.

Dogecoins Climbs as First US Bitcoin Swap Gets Approval

first_imgA nine-month-old dogecoin, a cryptocurrency has been soaring recently and touched its highest value since May, on Saturday. This has lead to the speculation that investors pump money into the cryptocurrencies to artificially inflate its price and later sell it off for a profit. Another factor that may have led to the increase in the price of dogecoin is switching the virtual currency to auxiliary proof of work (AUXPoW) or merge mining. This will allow investors to transact currency by providing an additional security to the decentralised network, according to coindesk.The sudden boost has driven market cap of dogecoin to $91 million eventually and around $40 million in one week, reported CoinDesk.However, experts opine that this boost is short-lived.”What’s happening now is a lot of investors are buying in because they see dogecoin as an attractive investment,” said a member of sub-reddit registered in the name of such_investor.US Approves Bitcoin Swap:A derivatives exchange has become the first to receive approval from US Federal Regulator on Friday as TeraExchange got approved from the Commodities Future Trading platform.This would allow investors to switch over to digital currency under the approval of US Federal reserve.Christian Martin, Tera Exchange’s CEO told Wall Street Journal: “A robust price index also helps the growing bitcoin trading community to accurately mark-to-market positions while establishing trust and stability in this growing global marketplace.”last_img read more

But the duo failed this time around as they were arrested by the police at the iconic Maracana stadium in Rio Se Janeiro.The girlfriend of famous YouTuber Vitaly Zdorovetskiy was seen running in a black swimsuit which had the advertisement of a Russian porn pranking website named Vitaly on it in the Champions League final.

Memory Loss Pulls The Flash Out of its Funk

first_img Top Movies and TV Panels to Keep on Your Radar for SDCC 2019’The Flash’ Season 5 Finale Recap: 2 Big Bads and 1 Pre-Crisis Stay on target When The Flash first premiered just under three years ago, it was the happier and more upbeat Arrowverse show. Compared to the brooding and serious Arrow, Barry Allen was positive, funny and cool in an awkward, geeky way. We haven’t seen a whole lot of that Barry this season. The focus on stopping Savitar from killing Iris in the future has put a damper on things. Thankfully, last night’s episode felt mostly like a return to the format that made us fall for The Flash in the first place. All they needed to do was give Barry a factory reset.Part of what made last night’s episode, so fun was that Savitar was barely in it. His only significant scene comes at the beginning, where he tells Barry how he was created. Surprise, it involves Barry messing with time. After Flashpoint messed everything up, it appears this current timeline is a closed loop. Barry created time copies of himself to defeat Savitar. Savitar killed all of them but left one alive. After Iris’s death, the rest of the crew ignored that time copy, who then became Savitar. As Savitar, he went back in time to convince everyone that he was the original speedster. You got all that? …Just go with it, the season’s almost done.That bit of exposition and the stinger at the end are the only two scenes that move the story forward. This episode is filler, but that’s OK. Even as filler, it’s the most The Flash this show has been in a long time. To stop Savitar, Team Flash has the brilliant idea of inhibiting Barry’s ability to form new memories. That way, Savitar won’t remember any plan they come up with. Basically, Cisco and Julian watched Memento, and their only takeaway was “what a great idea!” Of course, the plan doesn’t quite work out the way they want. Instead of blocking his short term memory, they give him amnesia.Candice Patton as Iris West (Photo: Katie Yu/The CW)That leads to the kind of comedy we don’t see much on this show anymore. It’s enough to remind us how much we’ve missed it. Barry stumbles around, trying to figure out who he is. He decides he doesn’t like being called Barry and prefers Bart. He still loves Iris, because some things don’t change, and they have fun together. There’s a scene of them talking and laughing over coffee, which gives off the sense that Iris feels the same way we do. She’s so happy to have this version of Barry back but knows it can’t last.It’s a little frustrating that it can’t because this is the one plan that actually stops Savitar. Just like Barry, Savitar has no idea who he is. Unfortunately, Barry needs his memories to be effective as The Flash. He can’t even defeat a minor villain, much less the God of Speed (amnesiac though he may be) unless he relearns how to be a speedster. There must have been a better way to communicate this though. The thing that gets them working on a cure is Barry messing up an expert testimony. Cisco and Julian give him glasses through which they can tell him what to say. There’s one flaw: if any water gets on them, even a drop of sweat, they break. Couldn’t they put some rubber around the frames or something? In any case, Barry… er, Bart botches the testimony, and because Central City has the worst court system in America, an arsonist goes free.Keiynan Lonsdale as Wally West, Danielle Panabaker as Killer Frost and Tom Felton as Julian Albert (Photo: Jeff Weddell /The CW)As flimsy as the reasoning is, it does set up a couple of great character moments. First is when Killer Frost is forced to work with Cisco and Julian on a cure for Barry. She wants Savitar back, and Central City needs Barry back. As their working, Cisco shares a memory of Caitlin, him and Ronnie. The memory gets to Killer Frost, and for a second she starts reminiscing with them. Danielle Panabaker plays this part especially well, barely managing to bottle up her emotions. Later, after Julian tells her he loves her, and she insists she doesn’t love any of them, Killer Frost has a moment to herself in the elevator. We don’t even need the special effect of Frost’s eyes flashing brown. Somewhere inside, she still loves Team Flash. I wonder if that will come into play in the upcoming battle.The other great character moment came from Iris. Candice Patton carried this episode, making the moment she had to bring Barry’s memories back painful. We’d seen them have fun together for the first time in I don’t know how long. Now, she has to bring back memories of the night of Barry’s mom’s murder. After the barrier blocking Barry’s memories is broken, she reminds him of the night he came to live with the Wests. She brings up how she held him while he cried, and that was the moment they fell in love. It could have come off as saccharine and cheesy, but Patton delivers the lines in a way that feels genuine.Anne Dudek as Tracy Brand and Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells (Photo: Katie Yu/The CW)The love story between H.R. and Tracy isn’t entirely working for me. It was fun watching him be an awkward flirt last week, but now it’s leaking into the main plot and getting obnoxious. They have chemistry, and it’s still fun to watch them dance around each other, but… why? Does every character have to have a love interest?Aside from a couple of minor annoyances, this hour of what was filler turned out to be one of the better episodes of the season. It remembers that The Flash is supposed to be fun. Plus, even though there were only minor developments in the main plot, they were significant enough that the episode didn’t feel completely like filler. Besides, the episode ended with a fantastic reveal that promises the fun will continue next week. In order to use Tracy’s speedforce bazooka against Savitar, they’ll need a power source greater than the sun. And who has one of those? King Shark. He’s coming back!last_img read more

AirAsia launches eXciting new services to New Zealand

first_imgOne of the world’s fastest growing budget airlines, AirAsia X, has secured new services between Kuala Lumpur and Christchurch. Air New Zealand Deputy Chief Executive Officer Norm Thompson congratulated Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker and Christchurch International Airport Ltd for securing the new carrier. “This is a really positive development for not only Christchurch but for the wider New Zealand economy” he said. According to Mr. Thompson, the new service is “a great example of the creation of a new complementary market to those already served by Air New Zealand and other existing carriers.” The introduction of this new service will increase market competition and “almost certainly stimulate a new wave of budget conscious travellers from Asia to New Zealand as well as from the other international ports AirAsia’s X services connect with in Kuala Lumpur” said Mr. Thompson. Mr. Thompson believes the development will benefit the already established South East Asian market and has the potential to create new tourism opportunities for New Zealand.

Construction Spending Up 11 in October

first_img Construction spending saw a substantial increase in October, advancing on solid gains in homebuilding outlays.In a report on Tuesday, the Commerce Department estimated construction spending throughout the month at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $971 billion, an increase of 1.1 percent over September’s revised estimate of $960.3 billion.Compared to a year ago, October’s rate of spending was up 3.3 percent.A large share of October’s increase came in spending on residential projects, which was up 1.3 percent from September to an adjusted yearly rate of $359.1 billion. In the private sector, spending on home construction climbed 1.3 percent, rising for both single-family (1.3 percent) and multifamily (1.8 percent) projects to come to a total rate of $353.8 billion.Despite the promising gain, economists Patrick Newport and Stephanie Karol at IHS Global Insight called October’s residential construction numbers “deceptively strong.””The figure for single-family construction depends on that month’s average single-family home price,” the pair said in a note to clients. “That number launched itself into outer space in October … While this will make fourth-quarter construction spending figures shine, we believe this is an anomaly caused by sampling issues, rather than true, sustainable strength.”Meanwhile, spending on public residential construction dropped 2.2 percent month-over-month, declining to an annual adjusted rate of $5.3 billion. That dip was offset by gains across nearly all categories of nonresidential construction, led by double-digit increases in commercial and public safety projects.

Forecasting Appreciation Rates Across the Nation

first_img 17 days ago 325 Views The average appreciation rate for residential real estate in the nation’s 100 largest markets is forecasted to be 3.7% over the next year ending on June 1, 2020, according to a Veros Real Estate Solutions. Veros states that anticipated rate of 3.7% is unchanged from the rate predicated in Q1 2019, and signified a “leveling out” after a four-quarter decline from a projected appreciation rate of 4.5% last year. “This flattening indicates that although there is definite softness overall in the housing market the fundamentals are healthy,” said Eric Fox, Veros VP of Statistical and Economic Modeling, and the report’s author. “One potential contributing factor we saw in the models is some softening of mortgage interest rates, which is helping to prop up values and stem the decline.” According to the report, another area that is holding steady is that 5% of the nation’s markets are expected to depreciate over the next year, which has not changed since Q4 2018.The Veros report states that Odessa, Texas, is expected to have the nation’s highest appreciation rate of 9.7%. Coeur D’Alene, Idaho, followed at 9.5%, and Idaho Falls, Idaho, was No. 3 at 9.4%. Grand Forks, North Dakota, is projected to see home values fall by 1.9% over the next year—the highest in the nation. Bridgeport-Stamford-Norwalk, Connecticut, came in at No. 2 at -1.7% and Baton Rouge, Louisiana, is expected to see home values fall 1.6%. Louisiana and Connecticut combined to have six of the 10 cities with the highest expected drops in home value: Lafayette, Louisiana; Shreveport-Bossier City, Louisiana; Houma-Bayou Cane-Thibodaux, Louisiana; and Norwich-New London, Connecticut. The report adds that the West Coast is not expected to see the growth in real estate value that is being witnessed in the Pacific Northwest. Prices for property in California is expected to remain soft, with major markets such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, and San Diego, expected to appreciate between 2.5% and 4.5%. Also expected to remain soft through next year is the New York-Northern New Jersey-Long Island metro, which is the nation’s largest market. Manhattan is expected to see depreciation rates of 2.5%, and New Jersey is forecasted for appreciation of just 1.7%.  2019 Housing Market Appreciaiton Home Values 2019-07-16 Mike Albanese in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Secondary Marketcenter_img Forecasting Appreciation Rates Across the Nation Sharelast_img read more
