Renouvellement de lentente sur les services sociaux durgence

first_imgLorsqu’un incendie s’est déclaré dans un immeuble résidentiel en juin, entraînant l’évacuation de 100 personnes, le ministère des Services communautaires et la Croix-Rouge canadienne ont assuré les services sociaux d’urgence tels que l’hébergement, la nourriture et les vêtements. Ces services sont offerts dans le cadre d’une entente conclue il y a dix ans visant à réunir les deux organismes pour aider les Néo-Écossais en situation d’urgence. Cette entente a été renouvelée, aujourd’hui 5 janvier, par Denise Peterson-Rafuse, ministre des Services communautaires, et John Byrne, directeur général, zone de l’Atlantique, Croix-Rouge canadienne. « Aider les Néo-Écossais qui en ont besoin, particulièrement dans une situation d’urgence, est une responsabilité que nous prenons très au sérieux. Il est important que les personnes touchées reçoivent le meilleur service possible, a dit Mme Peterson-Rafuse. Je suis ravie de renouveler notre entente avec la Croix-Rouge canadienne et de célébrer les dix premières années fructueuses de ce partenariat. » M. Byrne a souligné que les gens de toutes les régions de la province qui ont été évacués dans des situations d’urgence ont bénéficié de cette entente. « Le renouvellement de cette entente donne à la Croix-Rouge une base solide pour la planification et l’approvisionnement efficaces, a dit M. Byrne. L’entente nous permet de recruter des bénévoles et de leur offrir une formation spécialisée. Nos bénévoles constituent la clé du succès des services sociaux d’urgence que nous offrons. » En vertu de l’entente, signée pour la première fois en avril 2000, le gouvernement provincial engage la Croix-Rouge canadienne pour offrir six services sociaux d’urgence aux Néo-Écossais en situation de catastrophe ou d’urgence qui touche plus de 10 unités résidentielles ou plus de 25 personnes. L’entente permet d’offrir aux personnes évacuées un accès à un hébergement d’urgence, de la nourriture, des vêtements, des services d’accueil et d’information, des services de soutien pour la réunification des familles et une gamme d’autres services personnels. Au cours des derniers mois, l’entente a été mise en application lors de feux de forêt majeurs, d’inondations et d’autres évacuations. Par exemple, en juin dernier, un incendie a causé d’importants dommages à un grand immeuble résidentiel à Dartmouth, empêchant certains locataires de retourner chez eux pendant près d’une semaine et obligeant d’autres locataires à se trouver un autre logement pendant plusieurs mois ou même de façon permanente. « La Croix-Rouge a vraiment aidé nos locataires en établissant un abri, en les aidant à obtenir des vêtements, des médicaments et d’autres éléments essentiels, a dit A.J. Clarke, directeur des locations immobilières, Compass Commercial Realty. Certains ont tout perdu. La Croix-Rouge, en partenariat avec le personnel des Services communautaires et d’autres, nous ont donné le temps nécessaire afin de trouver un logement pour nos locataires dans d’autres immeubles ou pour les aider à trouver un logement à plus long terme. » En vertu de l’entente, le ministère rembourse la Croix-Rouge pour toute dépense directe liée à une intervention, et contribue 100 000 $ par année à la préparation. Ces coûts incluent la formation des bénévoles et du personnel, ainsi que l’achat et l’entretien d’équipement et de fournitures dans huit collectivités à l’échelle de la province en cas d’intervention en situation de catastrophe ou d’urgence.last_img read more

Minister of Human Rights Mostafa Ramid Speculated to Resign from Govt

Rabat – The Minister of Human Rights, Mostafa Ramid, has verbally informed Head of Government Saad Eddine El Othmani of his decision to resign from the government no later than October, during the beginning of the political return, according to Akhbar Alyaoum.After rumors about the resignation of El Othmani, the Moroccan daily announced in its August 16 edition that Ramid could also leave the government very soon.In an interview with the daily, the minister said, “Since you’ve asked such question, I want express all my solidarity with Saad Eddine El Othmani and his Government and  those who are committed to the stability and development of our country.” Ramid did not explicitly deny the speculations, saying that “to be part of the government or not is only a detail.”For Ramid, what is important is that officials respect their commitments and resign from their positions if they can no longer carry out their tasks effectively.“Today, as a minister, I perform my tasks with a clear conscience. No one but God  could know what might happen in the future,” said Ramid.This is not the first time Ramid has been speculated to leave the government. The former lawyer allegedly threatened to leave Abdelilah Benkirane’s government three times while Minister of Justice.Ramid’s announcement came almost 20 days after King Mohammed VI’s Throne Day speech, in which he recognized that many of the ties between the state to its citizens are fragile, particularly when the government goes out of its way to keep the public in the dark. read more

UN human rights commission extends mandate of expert on indigenous rights

The position has been held by Mr. Rodolfo Stavenhagen since 2001 when it was created. In his report last November, he said he had decided to focus on the implementation of recent national legislation on the rights of indigenous peoples and to review best practices for combining indigenous customary systems with the national legal system.The Commission asked the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to make it possible for the Special Rapporteur to attend the third annual session of the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues at UN headquarters next month.The panel also approved resolutions on tackling violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms worldwide, condemning Myanmar’s persistent violations of the rights of opposition leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and her followers, protecting human rights defenders and promoting human rights education. It also called on all governments to reduce the number of offences for which the death penalty could be imposed and to remove the penalty altogether from their legislation if they no longer applied it. read more

Flagship drill changes the game in the Pilbara

first_imgEnerflow Mining Services, a progressive and innovative company specialising in fabrication, maintenance, labour hire and specialist services to the mining industry in Western Australia reports its latest achievement is the commissioning and hire of a flagship Terex SKF Infinity Drill.  After delivery of the original rig to the Wangara premises back on March 1 this year, working under the leadership of the Mechanical and Drill Director Gareth Moody, the SKF Infinity has been transformed into a reliable performer that has been quickly snapped up by one of the biggest producers in the Pilbara.The transformation took 68 days and nearly 3,000-man hours and has seen testing, certification of registered components, a rebuilt carousel, upgraded to 7-in rods, rebuilt feed cylinder, refurbed cab and controls, refurb of rotatory head and motor, rebuilt deck and gangplank, extensive lineboring to mast pivot weldments and modified deck mounts with bushes, rebuilt mast lock system, upgraded mast raise cylinder keepers, rebuilt raise cylinders, hydraulic motor overhauls, upgraded sealed electrical connections throughout, air system valving changes and repairs and a full host of safety features including state of the art visual and lighting instruments. Weighing in at over 80 t the full support of the Enerflow team was required to coordinate the transformation and the 2,000km trip ahead of schedule into the centre of the iron ore heart of WA.Moody had this to say: “The SKF Infinity is capable of a 12 m single pass hole which provides some of the fastest drilling times seen in the Pilbara returning the client not only exceptional return on investment, but the ongoing prevision of the service kits and labour further cements Enerflow as an emerging and leading provider to the industry.“The open nature of the drill provides the onsite service team easy access and reduced downtime which will result in more drill meters, more processing, more returns and most importantly more jobs for West Australians”The SKF Infinity as pictured with the iconic Enerflow green back spider has some impressive statistics chalked up already. 20,000 litres of fluids, driven by a 900 hp diesel motor, producing 80 t of drill head pressure and capable of drilling rotary and hammer drilling with four onboard drill rods. This drill is the biggest diversification of the Enerflow business, demonstrating innovation, quality and safety.last_img read more

Les dauphins victimes de la marée noire dans le Golfe du Mexique

first_imgLes dauphins victimes de la marée noire dans le Golfe du MexiqueSelon les autorités environnementales américaines, en Louisiane, l’état de santé des grands dauphins, dont les populations connaissent une mortalité accrue, s’est dégradé depuis la marée noire survenue dans le Golfe du Mexique en 2010. Depuis février 2010, plus de 675 grands dauphins se sont échoués dans le nord du Golfe du Mexique (de la Floride à la frontière Louisiane / Texas) : un taux beaucoup plus élevé que la moyenne habituelle de 74 échouages par an. Une tendance qui a, depuis l’été 2011, incité la National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) à enquêter.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Dans la baie de Barataria, en Louisiane, soumise à une exposition massive et prolongée aux hydrocarbures lors de l’accident de la plateforme Deepwater Horizon au printemps 2010, 32 dauphins vivants ont été examinés durant l’été 2011. Parmi ceux-ci, la plupart souffrent d’insuffisance pondérale, d’anémie, d’hypoglycémie ou de symptômes hépatiques ou pulmonaires, la moitié présentant en outre des niveaux anormalement bas d’hormones anti-stress et de défenses immunitaires. Les chercheurs craignent que certains ne survivent pas, et l’un d’eux, observé pour la dernière fois fin 2011, a été retrouvé mort en janvier 2012.Ces eaux du bassin de Barataria restent fermées à la pêche commerciale, les résidus de pétrole étant toujours visibles le long du rivage. Les biologistes de la NOAA et leurs partenaires locaux sont à la recherche des multiples façons dont les dauphins pourraient avoir été exposés : ingestion, inhalation, consommation de poissons contaminés… La NOAA partage les résultats de cette étude avec les intervenants sur les sites d’échouage et les vétérinaires, afin d’améliorer les soins portés aux cétacés en détresse.

Bens Chili Bowl Unveils New Mural

first_imgBen’s Chili Bowl is revamping its well-known mural wall.Like the old mural, the new mural honors various heroes and influences of Black history. Ben’s Chili Bowl teamed up with artist and Washingtonian Aniekan Udofia, and accompanied by his Art Director Mia DuVall, unveiled the newest and — what is intended to be the last — mural on June 21.The new mural on D.C. institution Ben’s Chili Bowl features Barack Obama, Chuck Brown and Harriet Tubman, among others. (Photo by Lindi Vilakazi)Udofia created his first Ben’s Chili Bowl mural in 2012, which featured portraits of Bill Cosby, Barack Obama, Chuck Brown, and Donnie Simpson. This year, the mural will showcase 16 portraits, including Harriett Tubman, Prince, Taraji P. Henson, Donnie Simpson, Chuck Brown, Wale, Barack Obama and others.“I’ve heard a lot of mixed feelings, like most people are like claiming, oh well Prince is not from D.C. It’s not a D.C. wall. It’s a wall that starts with Harriet Tubman and shows you where we’ve come from and where we’re headed and what we’ve achieved. So, I kind of see it like the hero’s journey in a way. Because these people are my heroes,” Udofia told the AFRO.As a native of D.C., Udofia, who has Nigerian roots, said he grew up with a genuine knowledge and understanding of the District’s culture and influences.The new mural on D.C. institution Ben’s Chili Bowl features Barack Obama, Chuck Brown and Harriet Tubman, among others. (Photo by Lindi Vilakazi)“So with this particular piece, I think to date this has probably been the most challenging project,” DuVall said. “Only because they’re 16 portraits, and I think whether the folks on the wall are living or are not with us anymore, there are many, many, many, many people who are invested in their images. So, you know it’s like you want to create something, especially when you just get a list of names, you want to create something that resonates with the people who are actually here. But at the same time with the people who care about the people that are here and the people who have passed on.”While Udofia and his team worked on the mural for two weeks. They made the final touches to the artwork called “The Torch.”“As you can see the flag is kind of breaking off of Harriet Tubman’s cape and wrapping around Obama, who happens to be the first Black president. So, her carrying the torch and you see like the whole thing resonating. There is a frequency connecting these people to those people over there,” Udofia said.Pedestrians and Ben’s Chili Bowl customers have constantly stopped to view the mural and take pictures throughout the process.“I like it. I think it encompasses African American culture. You have artist like Chuck Brown, Taraji, Wale. I think it’s a good representation of what D.C. is in terms of current artists, but at the same time it reflects our history,” D.C. resident Tamika Gittens told the AFRO.last_img read more

Syrians on hajj bring tears for their homeland

After the family paid some $20,000 dollars in ransom to what they believe were pro-government forces known as shabiha, only a burnt corpse was returned.“Tears came down my face thinking about kids, refugees and all those killed,” Mohammed said, asking, like others interviewed, that his last name be withheld for fear of retaliation against family in Syria. “These people had cars and homes and lives.”“I prayed for God to free Syria from the unjust regime that had us living under fear and panic for 40 years,” he added, referring to the Assad family’s rule over Syria, which began over four decades ago with President Bashar Assad’s late father. “We want the downfall of the regime and in its place a modern country built on equality.”No exact figures exist for the number of Syrians among this year’s 3.4 million hajj pilgrims _ most of those performing the rite were either Saudi residents or held a second citizenship.

EC forecasts strong economic growth set to continue

first_imgThe Cypriot economy is expected to maintain its strong growth rates in the next couple of years though risks linked with the banking sector remain, the European Commission’s autumn forecasts project.More specifically, according to the EC, “economic activity is forecast to remain strong, driven by domestic demand, unemployment is expected to continue its rapid decline, while headline inflation is projected to pick up only moderately.“Robust economic growth is expected to support sustained budget surpluses and a decline in public debt from 2019 onwards, although the banking support measures in 2018 shifted public debt upwards and are likely to have deficit-increasing effects,” says the Commission.According to the forecast package presented by Commissioner Pierre Moscovici, in Cyprus public debt will fall from 105 per cent in 2018, to 98.4 per cent in 2019 and 91 per cent in 2020, while the budget will have a surplus of +2.8 per cent, +3 per cent and +2.9 per cent for the current and the next two years while inflation will reach 0.8 per cent, 1.3 per cent and 1.4 per cent respectively.At the same time, the Commission predicts a sharp decline in unemployment from 8.2 per cent in 2018, to 6.3per cent in 2019 and 4.8 per cent in 2020.The Commission warned however, that “risks to the fiscal outlook are tilted to the downside, linked to the uncertainties on the potential 2018 deficit-increasing impact and contingent liabilities from the banking sector, the possible introduction of new taxation reforms in 2019 and the potential additional costs of the national health system reform”.In any case it states that “public debt is expected to register an upward level-shift” of GDP in 2018 to 105 per cent due to banking support measures related to the CCB”. However, “public debt is projected to steadily decline thereafter, reflecting the projected primary surplus and strong real GDP growth”.Economic growth in Cyprus remained strong in the first half of 2018, backed by solid private consumption, investment and exports, with real GDP growing by 4 per cent.Going forward, growth is expected to remain fairly strong and above potential, albeit decelerating from 3.9 per cent in 2018 to 2.9 per cent in 2020.According to the forecast, “growth is expected to become more domestic demand-driven. Private consumption accelerated in the first half of the year and is expected to remain fairly strong, as unemployment keeps rapidly declining, wages gradually increase and inflation remains low, further supporting real incomes. Private investment is set to remain buoyant, reflecting the upbeat business sentiment and the many large-scale projects already in the construction phase. Public consumption and investment are also in the recovery mode,” the report said.Meanwhile “the underlying gradual softening stems from the tourism sector, which has been a driving force behind service sector exports in recent years. It is now confronted with increasing competition from neighbouring countries, where safety concerns are abating, and the lower purchasing power of some tourists (predominantly British and Russian) as a result of currency depreciations”.According to the Commission, positive labour market dynamics, with a rapid employment expansion since 2016, have continued bringing the unemployment rate down to 8.1 per cent by mid-2018, the lowest level in eight years. The strong expansion of the economy, and in particular the construction sector, provided employment opportunities also for the most vulnerable groups – young and long-term unemployed – reducing their unemployment rates to 19 per cent and 2.5 per cent, respectively. Employment expectations in key sectors are positive, signalling a bright outlook in the short term.Wage growth has remained contained, but recent increases in public wages and diminishing slack in the economy are expected to encourage wage rises in the private sector as well.The budget balance is set to remain in surplus, excluding the impact of the banking support measures in 2018, yet to be determined.The government’s fiscal performance remains remarkably strong, with the primary surplus being among the highest in the euro area.The budget surplus is expected to increase and remain high over the forecast horizon, although the projection for 2018 does not yet include the potential deficit-increasing impact of banking support measures related to the Cyprus Cooperative Bank (CCB).The general government surplus is forecast to improve to 2.8 per cent of GDP in 2018. Buoyant tax revenue growth underpinned by strong underlying economic growth will outpace government expenditure growth.You May LikeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityMake earthquake insurance a family priorityCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityUndoSUVs | Search AdsThese SUVs Will Take Your Breath Away.
