BC budget funds 3500 teachers homes for homeless hikes taxes on rich

VICTORIA — British Columbia’s minority New Democrat government says it is starting to build the province all residents want, tabling a budget update that promises to hire 3,500 teachers and build thousands of rental units and homes for the homeless.Finance Minister Carole James said Monday the government’s first budget document puts people first after 16 years of Liberal rule where families, students and seniors struggled.The government forecasts a surplus of $246 million this year and economic growth of 2.9 per cent, up from the 2.1 per cent projected in last February’s budget.The New Democrats formed a minority government last June after the May election did not produce a clear winner in the 87-seat legislature. The NDP, with 41 seats, and the Greens with three seats, combined their seat totals to oust the Liberals in a non-confidence vote.“The budget really does invest in people to invest in B.C.,” James said in a briefing before introducing the budget in the legislature.“I am a big believer that a budget does not stand alone,” she said. “A budget is a tool to make sure the people of this province who built our economy benefit from the economy.”The updated budget confirmed many of the NDP’s spring election promises, but other major pledges appeared to be under review and considered works in progress.B.C.’s carbon tax, currently at $30 a tonne, will increase by $5 per tonne on April 1, 2018, James said. The $5 annual increases ensures B.C.’s carbon tax reaches the federal goal of $50 a tonne a year before Ottawa’s 2022 deadline for a set carbon price agreement across Canada.She also said the carbon tax will no longer be required to be revenue neutral and the expected $1.2 billion in revenues this year will fund government programs rather than tax measures.“We will use carbon tax revenue to support families and fund green initiatives to address our climate action commitments,” said James.Green Leader Andrew Weaver said he supports the increase and the move to drop revenue neutrality, saying the government could use the money to fund transportation initiatives.James acknowledged the government’s plan for a universal, $10-a-day child-care program and its promised $400 subsidy for renters are currently in planning stages and may be more fully addressed in the government’s budget this February.“We will implement programs and services as we are able,” she said. “You can’t turn back the clock on 16 years overnight. That’s not possible.”The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives said investing in affordable housing and offering start-up funding for a poverty reduction strategy are welcome changes, but delaying work on the child-care promises raises concerns.“The question is how ambitious their plan is going to be,” said economist Iglika Ivanova. “I’m expecting to see a lot more in the budget in February.”James said the government will invest $681 million over three years to hire more teachers and provide services for students.A Supreme Court of Canada ruling last year ordered B.C. to reinstate classroom composition rights taken away from the B.C. Teachers’ Federation about 15 years ago.The budget update contains immediate housing initiatives for renters and the homeless and housing will remain a major focus of February’s budget.She said the government will spend $208 million to build 1,700 affordable rental housing units and $291 million to build 2,000 modular housing units for homeless people.“Putting people first is our government’s priority, and we’re working on a comprehensive strategy to improve housing affordability, close speculation loopholes and reduce tax fraud and money laundering in B.C. real estate,” James said in her speech to the legislature.She said the government will cut Medical Services Premiums by 50 per cent in January and the government’s promise to increase income and disability assistance by $100 a month are budgeted at $472 million.The budget includes tax measures that lowers the corporate income tax rate for small business to two per cent from 2.5 per cent, but increases the general corporate tax rate from 11 per cent to 12 per cent.The personal income tax rate will jump from 14.7 per cent to 16.8 per cent for those earning $150,000 and over.Jock Finlayson, B.C. Business Council vice president, said the business community expected the tax changes as they were part of the NDP’s election platform, but “this budget isn’t going to create a lot of new investment.”He said the increase in personal income tax, coupled with federal government tax changes, could result in B.C. businesses not being able to attract top-job candidates.Opposition Liberal finance critic Shirley Bond said the budget did not contain a jobs plan or an economic agenda.“Today we see the NDP delivered a plan to spend,” she said. “There was no single mention of a jobs plan.” read more

The Latest James Holmes says he was driven to kill by depression

The Latest: James Holmes says he was driven to kill by depression, not anger FILE – In this Thursday, Feb. 27, 2014, file photo, District Attorney George Brauchler leaves district court after a brief status hearing regarding Aurora theater shooting suspect James Holmes, in Centennial, Colo.

Sanitary products to be given out for free in secondary schools Chancellor

The Chancellor’s announcement is the latest in a series of moves by the Government to recognise the issue of what campaigners have termed “period poverty”. The government has already pledged to remove VAT on sanitary products – the so-called “tampon tax” – when the UK leaves the European Union. Currently it channels the revenue it raises to good causes. From July, hospitals will be ordered to supply free tampons and sanitary towels to patients, following a campaign by doctors.Medics had said it was unfair that some hospitals would provide men with razors and shaving foam but not offer women sanitary products. Britain's Secretary of State for International Development Penny Mordaunt  The organisation has joined campaigning efforts to remove taboos around menstruation and help girls who struggle to afford products such as pads and tampons.A new programme of activities designed by the charity WaterAid will see girls devise a drama to set out how they would deal with situations such as what to do if their period leaks onto their underwear or clothes while they are not at home. Britain’s Secretary of State for International Development Penny Mordaunt  Earlier this month, Penny Mordaunt, the International Development Secretary, unveiled a £2 million fund to tackle “period poverty” around the world.  According to the Department for International Development (Dfid) around half of women and girls in developing countries cannot afford sanitary products and are forced to use rags, grass and paper to manage their periods.  The Government Equalities Office also announced a task force, which will include government departments as well as manufacturers, retailers and charities, to help tackle period poverty in the UK.  Last year, the Girl Guides announced that they are introducing a “period poverty” badge as they encourage girls to discuss menstruation. Sanitary products are to be given out for free in secondary schools across England from September, the Chancellor has confirmed.Announcing the move in the Spring Statement, Philip Hammond said it followed concern from headteachers that girls are missing school because they cannot afford the products. The Department for Education will lead work to develop a national scheme to ensure the provision of free sanitary products to girls in secondary schools.Mr Hammond told MPs: “In response to rising concern by headteachers that some girls are missing school attendance due to inability to afford sanitary products, I have decided to fund the provision of free sanitary products in secondary schools and colleges in England from the next school year.”In response to a question in the Commons, Mr Hammond added later that he was “quite open to sensible suggestions” for how to address the issue in primary schools.School leaders welcomed the move, with the National Association for Head saying it was “the right thing to do”.Geoff Barton, general secretary of the Association of School and College Leaders, agreed but added that much more needs to be done to tackle the general issue of poverty among pupils.He said it is “extremely disappointing” that there is no extra cash for schools which are “creaking under the strain of funding pressures”.

US man pleads guilty to kidnapping girl and killing her parents

first_img 22,820 Views Short URL Jake Patterson Image: Renee Jones Schneider/Star Tribune via AP Share1 Tweet Email1 US man pleads guilty to kidnapping girl and killing her parents The 13-year-old victim was held captive in a remote cabin for three months. Image: Renee Jones Schneider/Star Tribune via AP Thursday 28 Mar 2019, 2:04 PM By Associated Presscenter_img A WISCONSIN MAN has pleaded guilty to kidnapping a 13-year-old girl and killing her parents.The guilty plea means Jayme Closs, who was held captive in a remote cabin for three months, won’t have to testify at the trial.Jake Patterson (21) yesterday pleaded guilty to two counts of intentional homicide and one count of kidnapping.As part of a plea deal, prosecutors dropped a count of armed burglary.Patterson faces up to life in prison when he is sentenced on 24 May; Wisconsin does not have the death penalty.As he left the courtroom, Patterson turned back and said, ‘Bye Jayme’. His victim wasn’t present.Patterson had said he would plead guilty in a letter sent earlier this month to a Minneapolis TV station, saying he didn’t want the Closs family “to worry about a trial”.He admitted kidnapping Jayme after killing her parents, James and Denise Closs, on 15 October last at the family’s home near Barron, about 145km northeast of Minneapolis.Jayme escaped in January after 88 days in Patterson’s cabin near the small, isolated town of Gordon, almost 100km from her home.The plea, coupled with an earlier decision by prosecutors not to bring charges in the county where Jayme was held, increases the chances that the details of her time in captivity will remain private.Defence lawyer Richard Jones told Judge James Babler Patterson “wanted to enter a plea from the day we met him” and dismissed strategies presented to him, including trying to suppress his statements to investigators.“He rejected all that and has decided this is what he wants to do,” Jones said.Members of the Closs family and Patterson’s father and sister all left the courthouse without commenting.School bus According to a criminal complaint, Patterson told authorities he decided Jayme “was the girl he was going to take” after he saw her getting on a school bus near her home.He told investigators he plotted carefully, including wearing all-black clothing, putting stolen licence plates on his car and taking care to leave no fingerprints on his shotgun.Jayme told police that on the night of the abduction, the sound of the family dog’s barking awoke her and she went to wake up her parents as a car came up the driveway.While her father went to the front door, Jayme and her mother hid in the bathroom. Patterson shot Jayme’s father as he entered the house, then found Jayme and her mother.He told detectives he wrapped tape around Jayme’s mouth and head, taped her hands behind her back and taped her ankles together, then shot her mother in the head. He told police he dragged Jayme outside, threw her in the boot of his car, and took her to his cabin, court documents stated.Authorities searched for Jayme for months. On 10 January she escaped from the cabin while Patterson was away. She then flagged down a woman who was walking a dog and pleaded for help. Patterson was arrested minutes later.Comments are closed due to ongoing legal proceedings.

Gel Tech has an EPA approved Fire-Ice solution; a retardant which works to cut flames and cool hot spots.  Fletcher Air has the type of plane needed to get the solution up and over and into those spots which are proving too challenging for usual methods of fighting fires.  Minister Dorsett said it is far too dangerous to send heavy equipment and fire crews into the area which they now plan to target by air with the Fire Ice.The Minister  said it is long past due for life to return to usual for Jubilee Gardens, businesses affected along Harold Road and the students and faculty of Acquinas College.   It was a week ago yesterday that the fire ignited and was fanned by nearly five days of gale force winds, creating billowing smoke which was seen for miles.#MagneticMediaNews #JubileeGardensdumpfire #JubileeGardens #NassauDumpFirelast_img read more

Prepare yourself for winter driving

first_imgClick to enlarge Frosty grass, ice-tipped evergreen trees and open roads blanketed in fresh powder — beautiful to see. But to drive in?Difficult and potentially dangerous would be a more apt description.Because winters in this part of the Pacific Northwest are mild in comparison with other parts of the country, Washington State Patrol spokesman Will Finn says drivers often aren’t used to the road conditions and don’t get practice driving in the snow.“A lot of times we see drivers getting overconfident with their driving,” he said.People with four-wheel drive may think their cars can handle faster speeds on icy or snowy roads; however, these vehicles can’t stop any faster.AAA projects 93.3 million Americans traveling during the Christmas and New Years holidays, a 1.6 percent increase from last year. About 90 percent of travelers plan to go by car.Jennifer Cook, spokeswoman for AAA Washington, says the first step to surviving the winter driving season is to take care of your car. Make sure the battery is healthy, fluid levels aren’t low, the lights and windshield wipers are working, and the tires are fully inflated and have enough tread.“As the temperatures go down, you’re going to lose tire pressure,” she said.Cindy Stanley, emergency management coordinator at the Clark Regional Emergency Services Agency, says drivers should plan ahead and keep an emergency car kit.Keep in mind what would happen and what you would need if you were stranded somewhere, she recommends. Even if you don’t end up using the supplies in your kit, you can hand a few flares to someone else who’s stuck on the side of the road.last_img read more

Cygnus Sale Looming

first_imgRumors have been swirling about the potential sale of Cygnus Business Media since co-CEOs Tony O’Brien and Carr Davis [pictured], in an interview with FOLIO: last month, indicated that the company is exploring a sale.According to three sources contacted by FOLIO:, the Cygnus corporate management team was in New York for about a week recently, most likely meeting with prospective buyers. Now, sources say a buyer has stepped up and that (as early as today) Cygnus is moving toward the due diligence phase of negotiations.Is the buyer from private equity or another publisher? So far, I haven’t been able to substantiate the rumors. A Cygnus spokesperson declined to comment other than to point out that Davis already has said that the company has been approached with inquiries and is exploring “a process.” Cygnus went on the block in 2006 but subsequently pulled off the market that year. It will be interesting to see how this turns out—and what sort of return owner ABRY Partners will see.Check back to foliomag.com for more on this developing story.last_img read more

Biologists project lower harvests of pink salmon this season

first_imgFederal fishery biologists expect only 30-million pink salmon, or humpies, will be harvested in Southeast Alaska 2016. That’s well short of 2015’s disappointing harvest of 34 million fish and 2013’s record catch of 95-million pinks.Download Audio(Photo courtesy of NOAA)As part of a post mortem on last year’s wonky salmon runs, KTOO’s Matt Miller visited a weir near Juneau that has been recording salmon going out and coming back earlier and earlier for the last 35 years.Last year’s pink salmon runs in Southeast Alaska weren’t horrible, but they weren’t great either. It actually made a big difference where the fish returned in the Panhandle.“Northern Southeast turned out good, above average,” said Joe Orsi, a research fisheries biologist at NOAA’s Ted Stevens Marine Research Institute. “But southern Southeast just tanked.”Orsi speculated that warm sea surface temperatures may be responsible for this year’s high survival rates or larger fish size. But those results were not universal for all Southeast Alaska pink runs.“Basically it’s about a million or so fish higher than the ten year average in northern Southeast,” said Orsi. “But southern Southeast Alaska, it’s been like ten million fish below the ten year average. So, there appears to be a split in the production and survival of pink salmon about in the middle of Southeast Alaska.”Prince William Sound and Kodiak pink runs also came in strong.But why? For now, Orsi said they can only speculate on the reasons.“I know they had a lot of flooding events last winter down there,” Orsi said. “That’s a possibility. There could’ve been a mismatch of the fish entering the marine environment and the timing of the zooplankton down there. There could’ve been an assortment of predators or competitors that came up with the warm Blob that may have impacted the juvenile salmon. There’s just a lot of unknowns.”Pink salmon returning to Southeast Alaska last year were the children of 2013’s big return that formed the basis for that season’s record 95-million fish harvest.Orsi earlier predicted that 54-million pinks would be harvested last season. Going off of his numbers, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game forecasted a range of 37- to 58-million fish that would be taken by all gear types.But only about 34 million were caught.Orsi concededed he was way off“ Last year, we predicted a fairly good pink salmon return to Southeast Alaska,” said Orsi. “I kind of have to face the music. We didn’t get that strong return this year.”It’s still unclear whether a persistent warm water anomaly nicknamed The Blob or a developing El Nino had any impact on those runs.Auke Creek is just one example of how some streams in northern Southeast had better returns than other streams further south. The Auke Creek Weir and Hatchery is a small, federally-operated facility tucked away in the woods in the 15-hundred feet between Auke Lake and Auke Bay.John Joyce, one of Orsi’s colleagues, is a research fisheries biologist at NOAA’s Ted Stevens Marine Research Institute who spends a lot of his time at the weir. He says local geography and the relatively low drainage area are big factors in the health of the system.“Flow is very important.” Joyce said.A low snowpack in the Auke Lake drainage melted early in March and April  last year. That was followed by a very dry May and then heavy rain by July.“So, all of that affects not only the flow in the creek, but also the temperature,” said Joyce. “Temperature and flow are really important factors for fish that migrate, for juveniles and adults.”Joyce used words like “phenomenal” and “incredible” to describe over 24-thousand big pinks that returned to Auke Creek this summer. That’s over a 51 percent marine survival rate for the 47-thousand juvenile salmon that passed out of Auke Creek and into the ocean previous year. Normal survival rates for returning salmon range from a tenth of one percent to ten percent.The Auke Creek facility is unique because biologists have data on stream flow and water temperatures that correspond with 35 years of continuously counting salmon.Joyce said they noticed silver returns have been compressed into largely a two-week period while pink runs have trended two weeks earlier over the last three decades.“It’s substantial,” said Joyce. “And it has ecological implications, too, because these juveniles have adapted to certain timing to enter the ocean. Well, that adaption to timing could be differently influenced in fresh water than salt water. So, you could potentially have a mismatch where they’re going faster in fresh water but the ocean is not ready for them.Joyce said their research into migratory behavior and ocean survival has implications for resource management.“If you have salmon that used to run over a month and you could access them and now they’re running over two weeks, it affects your ability to harvest, it affects predators’ ability to kill,” said Joyce. “So, it does have ecological impacts in terms of the systems, too.”Joyce says they’re collaborating with the University of Alaska of Southeast which is using their 35-year data sets in their research to determine how climate change is influencing migratory behavior, marine survival and productivity.last_img read more

Flipkart delivery boy arrested on charges of duping employer

first_imgA 21-year-old Flipkart delivery boy has been arrested on charges of duping his employer. The boy had been cheating the e-commerce firm by placing orders for iPhones and replacing them with fake ones.The accused, Naveen B, was working with a third party vendor of Flipkart for the last four months. He used to place orders for iPhones from fake addresses within his service area located in Chennai. Once the phones were delivered to the address, Naveen would replace the phones with fake pieces, which were bought from the local market. He would then return the fake handsets to the company on the pretext of a customer complaint, who was not satisfied by the product, Business Standard reported.Using this technique, the boy had replaced 12 iPhones in the last one month. Naveen was arrested on the basis of a complaint filed by a warehouse owner. Flipkart employees grew suspicious after it noticed increasing number of returned items were not the same, which had been dispatched by the company.”First he ordered one phone using a fake address and replaced it with a phone, a China model he bought from Ritchie Street and sent it back to the warehouse saying it was returned by the customer. As he didn’t get caught, he followed it up twice by ordering bulk,” an investigating police officer with Madhavaram police station in Chennai was quoted as saying by the Indian Express.According to the police officer, the value of the stolen phones is more than Rs. 5 lakh.[1 lakh = 100,000 | 1 crore = 10 million | 100 crore = 1 billion]last_img read more

Inside Look More Than 50 RarelyLoaned Van Gogh Works On Display At

first_img Listen X 00:00 /04:02 To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: center_img – / 3Over 50 rarely-loaned works by Vincent van Gogh are currently on display at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH), as part of a unique exhibition that traces the Dutch artist’s evolution.Called Vincent van Gogh: His Life In Art, the exhibition looks at Van Gogh’s works chronologically, from his early sketches to his final masterpieces. The exhibit will only be shown in Houston — when it ends on June 27, the works will be packed up and sent back to their permanent homes.“It is a rather rare thing these days, which is a survey of Van Gogh’s entire 10-year career from the beginnings when he decided to be an artist at the age of 27 until his death at the age of 37, just less than a decade later,” said curator David Bomford. “To understand the triumphs and torments of his life, but to do it in conjunction with the works he was producing at those times, is a wonderfully vivid way of recapturing a life and a career dedicated to art.”During that ten-year period, Van Gogh produced around 850 paintings and over 1,000 drawings. Bomford said while most Van Gogh exhibits focus on a specific theme related to the artist, the MFAH wanted to show how much his work developed in such a short period of time.The exhibition starts in 1880 with Van Gogh’s early work from the Netherlands. “He’s producing really dark, difficult paintings, really quite ugly paintings, certainly very stylized and awkward paintings,” said Bomford.From there, the exhibit shows pieces from Van Gogh’s time as a draftsman, where he honed his skills. “His drawing style just develops at an amazing speed and he becomes one of the great draftsmen of European art within a year or two from rather tentative beginnings, and so that speed of development is something remarkable,” Bomford said.Video Playerhttps://cdn.hpm.io/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/18134415/Van_Gogh_MFA.mp400:0000:0001:20Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.The exhibit then explores Van Gogh’s work in Paris when he briefly became an Impressionist, followed by a series of landscapes and portraits from his time in the South of France where he develops his unique style. It ends with his paintings from the final years of his life, while he was living in a psychiatric asylum in Saint-Remy and then in Auvers where he died.Among some of the works on display are his self-portraits and his iconic painting of irises.  “All of this is happening within an extraordinarily short time, in just a few years he’s developing from almost a beginner to one of the greatest artists that the world has ever seen,” Bomford said. “You see that whole story in this exhibition.” A rare occurrenceThe last time a major Van Gogh exhibition was in Houston was 1951, when the de Menils arranged an exhibition at the Contemporary Arts Museum.“That was an amazing exhibition when you look at the checklist and see what they were able to obtain,” said Gary Tinterow, the director of the MFAH. “Of course he wasn’t such an important figure of the public imagination as he is now, nor were there as many exhibitions or museums putting on exhibitions, so the competition has become much greater these days than it was in 1951.”There are currently at least nine Van Gogh exhibits in the works around the world, according to The New York Times.Tinterow is also one of five members on the supervisory board at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, which he said has given him insight into just how difficult it is to organize a Van Gogh exhibition.“When one embarks on a Van Gogh exhibition, one immediately finds out where one’s friends are and who they are,” he said. “It requires individuals, museums, private collectors to make an effort and to say yes to you as they say no to someone else.”Tinterow said talks for the current exhibition began about three years ago. The bulk of the paintings came from two museums in the Netherlands: the Van Gogh Museum and the Kröller-Müller Museum. But the curators also rounded it out with works from other collections.Another record-breaker?– / 2Given the rarity of the exhibit and excitement over the opportunity to see works by the iconic painter, it has the potential to be another attendance record-breaker for the museum. Nearly 2,000 people attended the public opening on March 10, according to Tinterow.The museum’s all-time attendance record was a six-month Ron Mueck exhibit, which saw 147,000 visitors.Crowds have continued to gather since the opening, with people visiting from around Texas and even out of state.“It’s just exciting that so many people can see his works that we haven’t been able to see before, and you  don’t have to travel all around the country to see them. They’re just all in one spot,” said Pandora Blankenship, who traveled  from Missouri with her daughter and granddaughter to see the exhibit. For many, it could be a once in a lifetime opportunity.“Definitely in my lifetime there will never again be this many Van Goghs in the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston,” said Tinterow. “And it’s a great opportunity for everyone to come and enjoy the work of an extraordinary human being.” Sharelast_img read more

Citizen Opposition Increases to Rail Tunnel Expansion Under Capitol Hill

first_imgWashington, D.C. residents are decrying the District Department of Transportation’s (DDOT) seeming preapproval of CSX Transportation’s proposal to rebuild a tunnel in Southeast Washington before the completion of a federal environmental assessment of the plan.DDOT issued occupancy permits as early as December 2012 clearing CSX’s right-of-way to roads near the Virginia Avenue Tunnel pending approval of the plan, according to the final environmental impact study released last week.For the past two years, CSX has been advancing its proposal to rebuild and expand the 3,800-foot, 110-year-old tunnel to accommodate two tracks and double-stacked intermodal freight trains. A CSX spokeswoman previously told the AFRO the tunnel’s single track is a chokepoint along its Eastern Seaboard freight rail corridor, and that it must be expanded to accommodate expected increases in freight transportation demand due in part to the expansion of the Panama Canal scheduled for next year.DCSafeRail, a multi-racial, multi-generational and mixed-income coalition of residents living near the tunnel who oppose the plan, say they are concerned that a D.C. agency offered such an early commitment before the mandatory federal process was completed.“We hope that the District Government has not thrown us under the freight train,” said Helen Douglas, a member of DCSafeRail, which has cited health and safety concerns.“At best, this indicates that the District government is failing to uphold basic principles of good government, including transparency and accountability,” added Douglas.” At worst, it suggests that the environmental study is a farce because it rubber-stamps the CSX open-trench proposal.”DCSafeRail met with Mayor Vincent Gray in January to express their concerns and were reassured by his promise that he would not allow a proposal that would “endanger the health and safety of D.C. residents.”Now, Douglas said, they are asking Gray “to honor his commitment to us and withdraw any pre-EIS approval for these permits and conduct a true EIS with real alternatives to the CSX Tunnel fully analyzed.”DCSafeRail will also ask the City Council, through Chairman Phil Mendelson, Councilmember Mary Cheh, chair of the Council’s transportation oversight committee, and Ward 6 Councilmember Tommy Wells to hold hearings on the whole CSX Tunnel EIS.last_img read more
