Church considering request to rescind doctrine of discovery

Photo courtesy: Kenneth Deer)Paul BarnsleyAPTN National NewsROME— A senior Roman Catholic Church official is considering a request from Indigenous leaders to rescind the 15th century church decrees that formed the legal basis for colonialism.Kahnawake Mohawk Kenneth Deer, a representative of the Haudenosaunee External Relations Committee, which represents the Iroquois Confederacy Council on international matters, was part of a delegation – that called itself the Long March to Rome — that attended the May 4 meeting with senior members of the Catholic Church.The meeting followed a short, face-to-face encounter in Vatican City with Pope Francis.Each Wednesday, the pope greets the public in St. Peter’s Square. There were approximately 20,000 people present on May 4, Deer said.The delegation wanted the meeting on that date because it was the anniversary of one of the papal bulls of discovery, decrees issued by the pope of the day which lent the church’s approval to the colonization of lands because they were “terra nullius” or lands empty of Christian people.The pope appeared on a stage and addressed the crowd.The Long March to Rome delegation was invited to sit on the stage and await their short face-to-face, individual meetings with the pontiff.The delegation issued a press release saying they were seeking revocation of three papal bulls because: “They were the ‘blueprint’ for conquest of the New World; they provided moral justification for the enslavement and conquest of Indigenous peoples worldwide; they are an ongoing violation of contemporary human rights legislation; and other communities currently struggling to save their lands are threatened by modern-day ideologies of inequality anchored in the papal bulls.”The original plan was for representatives of Indigenous nations around the world to assemble in Paris and actually march to Rome to demand a meeting with the pope, raising awareness of the issue as they progressed.But as negotiations with Vatican officials got more serious, the plan was changed. A smaller delegation met in Florence, about 300 km north of Rome, to wait and see if the meeting in the Italian capital would happen.David McKinnon, a Canadian lawyer who now resides in Amsterdam, worked closely with the Indigenous leaders to push for a meeting with the pope. The group had been working towards that day for more than a year.The call finally came the day before and the 11 delegates then made their way south.“The leaders were determined to tell Pope Francis that it was time for the Vatican to own up to its responsibility for legitimizing a genocide committed against Indigenous peoples and to show its good faith by revoking three Papal Bulls of Discovery: Dum Diversas (1452), Romanus Pontifex (1455) and Inter Caetera (1493), still in force today,” the delegation’s press release states.Claiming they carried the weight of 370 million Indigenous Peoples on their shoulders, the delegation says it represented the Haudenosaunee, also known as the Six Nations Iroquois Confederacy, the Assembly of First Nations, representing 634 First Nations from across Canada with 1.4 million citizens from 58 different Indigenous nations, Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission, the Umatilla confederacy of the Pacific Northwest, the Yakama, Oglala Sioux, Shawnee, Mapuche, Navajo Diné and Apache Ndee.Kenneth Deer set the scene for APTN National News. He first met with a priest who served as the pope’s interpreter.“When he came up to me I told him we were going to talk about the papal bulls that make up the doctrine of discovery and we want the pope’s support to rescind it because states are still using it today. And right away he got very defensive and said, ‘Well that was a long time ago and we already rescinded them and it’s not necessary to say anything because we’re not using them to dispossess Indigenous people.’ I said, ‘That may be so but states are still using them today in court cases. In the United States and Canada they continue to use the papal bulls to dispossess and disempower Indigenous people,’” Deer told APTN. “So he said OK. When it was our turn to see the pope, the first two were [former Truth and Reconciliation Commissioner] Willie Littlechild and [former South Thompson Indian Band Chief] Keith Matthew. And they talked to him about the bulls as well.”Then it was Deer’s turn.“I greeted him and we shook hands and I told him that we want his support to rescind the papal bulls that make up the doctrine of discovery because states are still using it today,” said Deer.“The pope was very kind. He kept eye contact and he was very attentive. And all he said was ‘I will pray for you.’ That’s the only thing he said. And he gave me a little red box with a set of rosaries in it. And that was it.”Then it was time to get down to business.“Right from there, then we got whisked to the little compound in Rome. It’s not in the Vatican City. There’s not enough room,” he said.“The most important part of May 4 was meeting with the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace. There we met with Cardinal Silvano Tomasi, who is the chair. And that was the key meeting. That was the meeting where we addressed the whole issue of the papal bulls and the doctrine of discovery. That was key. That was the original intent. That was the original appointment,” he said.At first it appeared the archbishop was not going to listen to the Indigenous leaders.“At first when he first started he started giving the usual spiel that the papal bulls are no longer in effect, that they’ve been superseded by other papal bulls and there was no need for us to do anything. Then we interrupted him to do an opening prayer,” Deer said. “Then we did introductions around the table and then we got into the issues. By the time we had done with him he was changing his position. At the end he said, ‘Maybe the Vatican does have to make a statement. We have to consider making a statement.’”That was a very significant choice of words, Deer said.“He didn’t say rescind, he said abolish – a much stronger word – he said we have to abolish the papal bulls and that maybe there should be an apology from the pope,” he added.That was more than the delegation had asked for.“We didn’t ask for an apology. I’m not a big fan of apologies. I need something stronger than that,” Deer said. “Then he said they would need to have further meetings on this to discuss . . . we’d like to discuss what kind of statement he would make. So he was open to that idea. He committed himself to meetings but he wouldn’t commit about when and where because he wasn’t prepared for that when we came in there.”The group feels they got what they travelled to Rome to get.“We thought that was the most significant part of the whole trip was Tomasi saying that maybe we should make a statement,” said Deer.The message has reached the ears of one of the most highly placed clerics in the church. Archbishop Tomasi has been mentioned as a possible candidate to succeed Francis when the time comes, Deer said.“That’s what I’ve heard. And he’s a good friend of the pope, a confidante of Pope Francis. And some of us knew him because he was stationed in Geneva for few years. So he’s familiar with some of us. So I thought that was amazingly significant,” he added.The process of working towards the goal of getting rid of the roots of the colonial era has commenced, Deer said.“The other thing he wanted was to get more information about how states are using the doctrine of discovery today. So we’ll have to send him some documents how the Canadian government is using them in their court cases. And apparently they’ve been using them as recently as last year from what I’m hearing,” he said.Deer acknowledged that the idea gained strength because this pope seems more open to dealing with the matter than his predecessors.“I think the people felt that if there’s a pope that’s going to do anything it’ll be this one,” he said.Deer said Canadian lawyer David MacKinnon worked for more than year to make the meeting happen. Deer praised MacKinnon’s “tenacity in getting the appointment with the pontifical council.”“In the end he didn’t go to the meeting because he wanted us to take the lead,” he said.The Indigenous leaders are now waiting to see if Tomasi will follow through with action.Deer said that when he sees how hard it is to get that second meeting he’ll get a better idea of the church’s sincerity.news@aptn.calast_img read more

Home Depot 3Q results top Street on strength at US stores raises

Home Depot 3Q results top Street on strength at US stores, raises fiscal 2013 forecast ATLANTA – Home Depot’s fiscal third-quarter profit climbed as sales at its U.S. stores strengthened amid the improvement of the housing market.The results for the nation’s biggest home improvement company beat analysts’ estimates and the chain also lifted its full-year forecast again on Tuesday. Its shares briefly touched an all-time high.Home improvement companies have been benefiting from record-low interest rates and rising home prices, spurring customers to spend more to renovate their homes.“We were pleased with our performance in the third quarter as sales exceeded our expectations,” said Craig Menear, executive vice-president of merchandising. “Strength in the core of the store, the continued resurgence of our pro(fessional) customers and mild temperatures helped us overcome difficult comparisons cycling last year’s storm related sales.”For the three months ended Nov. 3, Home Depot Inc. reported net income of $1.35 billion, or 95 cents per share, up from $947 million, or 63 cents per share, a year ago. The prior-year period was weighed down by a one-time charge of 11 cents per share tied to store closings in China.Analysts expected lower earnings of 89 cents per share for the latest quarter, according to FactSet.Revenue for the Atlanta-based company rose 7 per cent to $19.47 billion from $18.13 billion. Wall Street predicted $19.18 billion.In the third quarter, the chain reported that sales at stores open at least a year, a key retail metric, rose 7.4 per cent. In the U.S., that figure increased 8.2 per cent.Smaller rival Lowe’s Cos. reports quarterly results on Wednesday.Home Depot now foresees fiscal 2013 earnings to be up about 24 per cent to $3.72 per share. Revenue is expected to be up approximately 5.6 per cent. The company had also increased its full-year outlook in August. It previously predicted earnings of $3.60 per share, with revenue up about 4.5 per cent. Based on 2012’s revenue of $74.75 billion, the new guidance implies approximately $78.9 billion.Analysts expect full-year earnings of $3.70 per share on revenue of $78.63 billion.Credit Suisse analyst Gary Balter, who rates Home Depot “Outperform,” said the results were “another well executed quarter.”“We continue to like Home Depot given the U.S. housing recovery, share gains from weaker competitors (Sears), strong execution, and internal initiatives,” he said.Shares rose $1.67, or 2.1 per cent, to $81.34 in morning trading after hitting an all-time high of $82.27 earlier in the session.

Transat says its wellpositioned to currency hit of Scottish independence vote

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Transat says it’s well-positioned to currency hit of Scottish independence vote by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted Sep 11, 2014 8:19 am MDT MONTREAL – Vacation package operator Transat A.T. says it’s well-positioned to withstand fluctuations in the values of the British pound and the euro, should Scotland vote next week to separate from the United Kingdom.Polls that suggested the Yes side was gaining momentum ahead of the Sept. 18 referendum has sent jitters through the markets, prompting investors to sell of the British pound. The currency fell earlier this week to a 10-month low but recovered Thursday.A lower pound could make it more expensive for British customers travelling to Canada but less expensive for Canadians to go the other way. Having operations on both sides of the Atlantic should help Montreal Transat to mitigate the impact of a currency change, he said.About 60 per cent of Transat’s transatlantic traffic is from Canada, compared with 40 per cent from Europe.“I think we are well-positioned to face these kind of situations, if they happen,” chief financial officer Denis Petrin said Thursday during a conference call about its third-quarter results.Transat said this year’s summer seasons got off to one of the best starts in the company’s history, even though its profits dropped primarily due to the cost of fuel-hedging last year.The Montreal-based company, which operates Air Transat and a variety of other travel-related businesses, earned $25.8 million or 66 cents per diluted share for the three months ended July 31. That’s down 37 per cent compared $1.07 per share a year earlier when net profit was $41.1 million.About $12 million of the $15 million difference was attributable to fuel hedging, a non-cash, non-operating item. Adjusted net income before non-operating items was $26.7 million or 69 cents per diluted share, down 13 per cent compared with $30.8 million or 80 cents in the third quarter of 2013.Analysts expected Transat would earn 67 cents per share in adjusted profits on $966 million of revenues.Transat CEO Jean-Marc Eustache said the company had one of its best third quarters in spite of an increase in transatlantic capacity from rivals including Air Canada’s Rouge (TSX:AC.B).“In the entire history of the company, we’ve done better on only two occasions, including last year, which was a record. So we’re talking about a very satisfying start to the season,” he said.Revenues were up 1.6 per cent at $941.7 million, compared with $927 million a year earlier.The number of travellers was stable during the quarter, while average selling prices were higher on a lower Canadian dollar compared to the euro and British pound.Transat’s North American revenues decreased four per cent or $27.9 million as the number of travellers decreased 2.8 per cent. The segment’s operating incomes was $19.8 million, compared with $28.1 million a year earlier. The company reduced its transatlantic capacity by 2.1 per cent during the quarter and increased its supply to Sun destinations by eight per cent.European business unit sales increased by 17.8 per cent or $42.6 million due largely to the lower loonie. Operating income increased to $15.3 million from $13.7 million in the prior year. The number of travellers increased 12.1 per cent while average selling prices were down.The company said it expects to record “satisfactory” but lower results during the fourth quarter as transatlantic capacity from August to October is similar to last summer.A total of 86 per cent of that capacity has been sold to date, with load factors down 1.5 per cent and selling prices up one per cent. The weak Canadian dollar net of the change in fuel costs are expected to increased operational expenses by 3.8 per cent.Transat’s capacity to Sun destinations from Canada is up seven per cent.Benoit Poirier of Desjardins Capital Markets said the better-than-expected results, unchanged outlook for the coming quarter and cost reduction initiatives should boost the company’s share price.“We like management’s disciplined approach to improving margins by focusing on capacity management and higher selling prices,” he wrote in a report.Transat said it also remains on track for a $20 million improvement in margins this year and $20 million in 2015 when the full benefits will be realized from the operation of its narrow-body fleet. It is also working on a 2015-2017 strategic plan taht Poirier expects should add at least $25 million more in cost savings.Analyst David Tyerman of Canaccord Genuity said the “modest upside surprise” in the third quarter should improve the inexpensive Transat shares.“We continue to believe Transat’s results have substantial recovery potential. However, there may be risk from Air Canada’s rouge expansion and industry competition,” Tyerman wrote.Transat A.T. is an integrated international tour operator with more than 60 destination countries.On the Toronto Stock Exchange, Transat’s shares lost 13 cents or 1.5 per cent to clost at $8.57 in Thursday.Follow @RossMarowits on TwitterNote to readers: This is a corrected story. An earlier version correctly said net income was down 37 per cent from a year earlier but erroneously blamed the impact of increased market capacity. A bigger factor was fuel hedging. read more

Congress 2014 organizers are looking to fill more than 500 student volunteer and contractor positions as it gears up for the major academic conference at Brock University in May.Last held at Brock in 1996, Congress – the largest symposium of its kind in Canada – will bring 8,000 or more delegates to the campus between May 24-30.Organizers are looking for between 350-400 volunteers to help with “anything and everything,” said Curtis Gadula, Brock manager, off campus living and neighbourhood relations.“We couldn’t have done this without the volunteers.”Another 110 paid contractor positions are also available.Hosted by the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences, Congress brings together academics, researchers, policy-makers, and practitioners to share findings, refine ideas, and build partnerships that will help shape Canada’s future.Developed in partnership with a different host university each year, Congress programming is open to attendees, academics and non-academic audiences.From theatre research, literature studies and education to history, sociology and communications, Congress represents a unique showcase of scholarly excellence, creativity and leadership.Interested volunteers should contact Gadula prior to the deadline March 14 at 4 p.m.Applications for positions can be filled online. read more

Student project paints picture of St Catharines history for the public

What did the population of St. Catharines look like in 1900?That’s the question Brock University students aimed to answer during a recent project looking into the city’s history.Students in HIST 2P26 — Introduction to Digital History spent the past semester digging into archival material in hopes of not only shedding light on St. Catharines’ past, but also sharing their findings with the public.Forty students took on the task of transcribing St. Catharines tax rolls from 1900 to build a database and create an historical GIS map of the city’s population at the turn of the 20th century.“The project gave students digital skills as well as experience working with archival materials and writing social history,” said Assistant Professor of History Colin Rose, who works with GIS data in his own research.“A lot of them have commented on how this student-driven learning experience has helped them develop new skills, like reading cursive, and really understand the process of designing and pursuing a history or digital humanities project.”The students used GIS to match the previous city population to the current road layout, showing exactly where individuals from the past would live today. They also included statistical data on the number of children, total property value, occupation, age and pets within each household.“It’s interesting to see what occupations people had then,” said second-year student Elisa Mastroianni, who worked with Vanessa Barbera to transcribe data from a section of the city’s St. George’s ward. The pair found occupations as diverse as piano tuner, labourer and bicyclist in their data.“Women were always designated as wife or widow in the tax roll,” said Barbera. “Some were landlords renting out property.”Mastroianni was intrigued by details of past lifestyles.“It was interesting to see what family life was like,” she said.Students found interesting spatial patterns in their data, noting that housing was clustered by socio-economic status rather than by ethnicity. Working class neighbourhoods — particularly, apartment blocks — where a lot of migrant labours made their first homes were highly diverse areas.Students also commented on the surprising lack of family dogs, although that could be an idiosyncrasy of data recording, Rose said.Rose and the students worked closely on the project with Brock’s Archives and Special Collections and St. Catharines Museum, which provided tax rolls for digitization.“It is a public history project that gives local history enthusiasts access to a trove of genealogical and historical information on St. Catharines’ past,” said Rose. “The students have done a public service through their research and learning, which, hopefully, the community will find value in.”The interactive, dynamic WebGIS students have been constructing allows users to explore and analyze the historical population of St. Catharines.

Do national values and institutions mean forced assimilation

first_imgThe word “assimilation” is to many a negative concept and has been misused by players immersed in the game of misinformation. The word “integration” on the other hand has an opposite effect and is far more attractive to new migrants and to those seeking to become Australian citizens. Why is this so one may ask? The answer is a simple one if we as citizens truly put aside our differences of opinion and look at the view it from an objective point of view.Assimilation on the one hand appears to a migrant contemplating becoming an Australian citizen that they would have to give up all of their traditional values, ethics, faith way of life and most of all lose their identity of who they are and where they come from. While integration on the other hand, to a migrant considering becoming an Australian citizen means to embrace to the nation’s laws, institutions and values without losing one’s traditional cultural values, faith or where they came from.Many would agree with me that the word multicultural has been hijacked and misused by those seeking to benefit from a benevolent and tolerant society. This negative use of multiculturalism has created a schism within Australian society, causing normally tolerant citizens to choose sides in a “battle of the minds”. The more the media “beat-up” and or misleading statements by the players involved goes further to crate undue anxiety that will sooner or later erupt in a violence that can have irreversible consequences.I wonder whether the players involved are aware of their insidious involvement and what their actions may spawn. I say this because, I for one consider myself one of those “normally tolerant citizens” willing to embrace new cultures that contribute to the “security, economic stability, interests and longevity” of this nation we call home – Australia. However having said that, does not mean that I am a saint, have infinite patience, over tolerant or better still believe that I am immune from being influenced one way or another.I must admit that I as young teen growing up in Prahran-St Kilda region that life was not easy but we made the best of it by integrating with our neighbours and at the same time retaining or Hellenic identity at home.I guess on reflection I am blessed to have as my very best friends’ individuals ranging from one end of the world to another irrespective of their cultural and religious beliefs. Such has been my life experiences, a life full of challenges that brought me face to face with differences that I could never imagine and thus enriched my understanding of others living amongst us.This brings me to the point of whether we as “citizens” have a duty first to this nation of ours, to humanity outside our borders, to a higher authority such as the United Nations, or to a higher order that has yet to appear or surface. I am of the belief that every citizen no matter what nation he or she has decided to call home has a responsibility to ensure that the nation’s “pillars” of “security, economic stability, interests and longevity” comes first and foremost above all other considerations. Family, faith, culture, traditions, are not outcasts but are firmly embedded within those nations “pillars”; surrounded by a world that is full uncertainty, diminishing resources and invasion of privacy as we who grew up as baby boomers once enjoyed.Now after a period of some 70 years immigration, this nation is coming to grips with entirely new phenomena, one that did not have the means, resources and ability to raise its ugly head above the parapet. Today we are subjected via the media information relating to racist attacks on innocent people by individuals who would under normal circumstances not react. This is nothing new and it will continue to occur whenever newcomer whose culture is alien to our western way of life. Australia has not been immune from the ills of the world, but it does have a responsibility to its people first and then to wider global community.I honestly believe that all individuals can live harmoniously together in peace side by side without the need to resorting to violence or threats of assimilation, by integrating cultural and traditional values that are compatible with Australian values ethics and its laws and way of life. Faith is a personal experience and should not be part of the equation as integration means living within a society that has the freedom to worship ones creator whoever that may be and without losing one’s identity or where they originated from. Again I find it ironic. At this point I am quite sure that I too will be attacked for my opinions by all sides who wish to point some error in my analysis. However whatever the case may be; my point of view does have its genesis based on a life time of extraordinary life’s challenges and I am quite sure that sanity will prevail in the end. Remember that “multiculturalism” as a word is merely a journey to becoming an Australian citizen, nothing more and nothing less.If the Greeks, Italians, Asians, Indians like their brethren Anglos/Saxon and Gaelic cultures can do it, so can those who are of the Islamic faith. I have enormous faith in Australians of the Islamic faith and it is up to them to come to terms with the Australian way of life, not the other way round. This article is dedicated to all my friends that I have known throughout life, whether they are of the Islamic, Judaic, Christian and/or other forms of faith. Tolerance and commonsense are virtues that need to be cultivated at all times. That is the Australians way and that is the journey I have taken.*Peter Adamis is a Journalist/Social Media Commentator and writer.

Battle Between Steam and Epic Games Store Gets Bloody Over Metro Exodus

first_img Sorry, You Can’t Date Keanu Reeves in ‘Cyberpunk 2077”Star Wars Pinball’ Has Your Favorite Brand in Ball Form Last year when Epic revealed the Epic Games Store, a PC video game marketplace designed to give the Steam monopoly the first real fight of its life, we thought things would get ugly. With Fortnite’s fortunes at its disposal, Epic had the sheer financial strength and technical infrastructure to challenge Valve by offering sweet exclusivity deals. But incredibly savvy moves like offering indie developers a fairer cut of profits suggested Epic had the brains to win this battle, too. It made you want to overlook how sparse the Epic Games Store is at the moment when it comes to features.The Epic Games Store is just about two months old and already the fight between it and Steam has blossomed into a full-on war. The latest major battle? The fight over Metro Exodus.As we said, Epic’s go-to move right now to gain support for their store is by scoring high-profile exclusives. Ever since Valve pretty much stopped making video games, Steam is mostly useful as a centralized collection of third-party PC games. And the more of those games migrate to Epic’s camp the more appealing it is and bigger blows get dealt to Valve. Epic Games Store exclusives include Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 from Ubisoft, the next project from Supergiant Games Hades, and now most controversially the post-apocalyptic Russian shooter Metro Exodus.You see Metro Exodus wasn’t always an Epic Games Store exclusive. Before that store was even a thing you could pre-order it on Steam. And to be fair those that did will still have their purchases honored when the game releases on February 15. But going forward, at least for however long the exclusivity deal lasts, you’ll only be able to buy Metro Exodus on the Epic Games Store.And lots of folks had something to say about that. Steam users, unused to competition, felt like collateral damage in a fight between corporate titans. Valve itself called the move “unfair” in a post pulling down Metro’s pre-order page. Even the messaging coming from Metro Exodus publisher THQ Nordic seems mixed. One tweet blamed parent company Koch Media for the move and wished players had a choice. But executives have been resolute in their support for the deal.Expect this to get even worse if Metro Exodus launches on Steam in a condition even slightly worse than its Epic Games Store counterpart. And while we now all know a change-up like this is possible, next time Epic gets another exclusive we do hope players get more of a heads up. Of course, you can also just skip this drama and get the game on your Xbox One or PlayStation 4 instead. Stay on targetlast_img read more

John Lennon CustomSigned Beatles Album Up For Auction

Lennon owned the album before trading it with collector Dave Morrell in 1971 for a reel-to-reel tape of the Beatles’ Yellow Matter Custard bootleg. After acquiring the album, Morrell got Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr to sign it as well, boosting its value even further, perhaps into the highest echelon of Beatles collector’s items.”The term ‘world class’ is probably a bit overused in describing collectibles,” claims the listing on Heritage Auctions. “Labeling this unique, rare and desirable Beatles item as ‘’world class’ is not hyperbole.

Toyota finally rolls out Android Auto at Chicago Auto Show

first_imgEnlarge ImageToyota was one of the longest-lasting holdouts to add Android Auto. John Gress/Corbis/Getty Images Sometimes it’s the little updates that make the biggest quality-of-life improvements. While Toyota is rolling out several face-lifted models at Thursday’s Chicago Auto Show press day, it’s an unseen update that may prove to be the biggest benefit for owners: Android Auto integration.The Japanese automaker has long been one of the technology’s most noteworthy holdouts. Indeed, it only began rolling out Apple CarPlay compatibility on its Entune systems last year. Android Auto, which integrates users’ Android phone functionality into a vehicle’s infotainment system, will be offered in 2020 model-year Toyota 4Runner and Sequoia SUVs, as well as its Tacoma and Tundra pickup trucks. Overseas, the marque’s Aygo will get the tech, as well as European-market Yaris models.A number of automakers have quietly expressed data privacy concerns over letting Google have access to many of their vehicle’s systems as a condition of Android Auto integration. Security and intellectual property reservations have previously been voiced by several automakers to me on the condition of anonymity. When I asked if any data security questions related to Android Auto may have contributed to the tech’s slow rollout in Toyota’s products, Russ Koble, the automaker’s Advanced Technology Communications Manager, said that such concerns weren’t the issue. Instead, he tells Roadshow, “Toyota and Google have been working closely on the integration of Android Auto. Part of this integration is ensuring alignment with Toyota’s usability standards.

PM asks BNP to not foil polls

first_imgPrime minister Sheikh Hasina, also the Awami League president, addresses a meeting of the party’s Parliamentary Board (ALPB) at her Dhanmondi office on Thursday afternoon. Photo: PIDPrime minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday urged the BNP not to foil the upcoming general election, asserting that any attempt in this regard will not be successful as the people are with the Awami League.The prime minister also strongly condemned the attack on policemen and torching of their vehicles by the BNP terrorists in the capital on Wednesday and urged the people to resist such terrorist acts.“As the BNP has decided to take part in the elections, I will like to tell them that they should make efforts so that elections are held … at least the party shouldn’t try to foil the polls,” Sheikh Hasina, also the Awami League president, said in her introductory speech at a meeting of the party’s Parliamentary Board (ALPB) at her Dhanmondi office on Thursday afternoon.The AL president said the BNP had hatched such conspiracies to foil the 2014 elections, but they did not succeed. “They will not be successful in future too as the people are with us,” she said.The premier called upon the people to protect their voting, democratic and constitutional rights by putting up resistance against terrorism of the BNP.“I urge the people to put up a resistance against any kind of terrorism and arson attack of the BNP nexus and they (people) will have to protect the voting, democratic and constitutional rights,” she said.Sheikh Hasina said her party stays always beside the people to protect their rights. “We always remain beside the people and will stay to uphold their rights,” she said.The prime minister said the democratic trend must be upheld and the country will be developed through it. “We will make further uplift of the country Insha Allah,” she said.Referring to Wednesday’s terrorist acts in front of the BNP office in the capital, the AL president said a festive mood has been created ahead of the elections. “But the BNP feels bad when such an environment has been created and the BNP poured water on that festivity– we’ve seen it Wednesday,” she said.The prime minister said a BNP leader all of a sudden appeared in front of their office with a procession which he was not supposed to do. “Then they attacked the on-duty policeman and torched three police vehicles,” she said.“The BNP started fire terrorism again that they unleashed in 2014 and 2015 and the party cannot do any work without arson attacks — it’s their proof,” she said.Sheikh Hasina said it is very regrettable that when the people of the country are ready to participate in the elections in a festive mood, then the BNP has appeared again in their ‘swarupe, (self form).Accusing the BNP of attempting to shift responsibility on the Chhatra League for Wednesdy’s incident, the premier said the party is very much expert to shift responsibility of their misdeeds to others.“When different TV channels footage showed the BNP terrorists’ involvement in the incident, then the BNP leaders made comments hurriedly that the Chaatra League hooligans carried out the attack and torched the police vehicles,” she said.Sheikh Hasina posed a question that when the Chhatra League and Jubo League activists went in front of the BNP office and why they will go?last_img read more

Lynch Pushes Baltimore to Reach Police Consent Decree

first_imgWASHINGTON (AP) — Attorney General Loretta Lynch on Thursday stepped up the pressure on Baltimore officials to reach a deal with the federal government to overhaul the city’s police practices, saying “the ball is in the city’s court” to conclude negotiations soon.Lynch, who took office in April 2015 as riots roiled Baltimore after the death of a Black man in police custody, said she intends to return to Baltimore in January to give an update on efforts to reach a court-enforceable consent decree.FILE – In this May 5, 2015 file-pool photo, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, center, accompanied by Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division Vanita Gupta, speaks with reporters after a meeting with community activists at Baltimore University in Baltimore, Md. Lynch on Thursday, Dec. 15, 2016, stepped up the pressure on Baltimore officials to reach a deal with the federal government to overhaul the city’s police practices, saying “the ball is in the city’s court” to conclude negotiations soon. (AP Photo/Jose Luis Magana, Pool, File)Her statements seemed intended to publicly push Baltimore toward a resolution and appeared to reflect disappointment in the pace of negotiations.Though consent decrees can take months to negotiate, the federal government and Baltimore already had reached an agreement in principle by August, when the Justice Department issued a report that identified discriminatory policing practices and pervasive civil rights violations.The Justice Department is looking to conclude the process by Jan. 20, when the Obama administration ends and Lynch and other leaders will move on — a timeline for completion that remains possible. The city has been provided with each of the sections of the proposed consent decree and has had some of the sections for months, according to a person familiar with the negotiations who was not authorized to discuss the ongoing talks and spoke on condition of anonymity.“At this point, the ball is in the city’s court, but we are looking forward to getting a positive response from them on finalizing this consent decree,” Lynch said.Anthony McCarthy, a spokesman for the new mayor, Catherine Pugh, said the city was committed to working with the Justice Department. He said the city had already undertaken some of the changes that Washington sought and wanted to see those improvements acknowledged in the report.“She also wants us to ensure that the consent decree is in the best interest of the people of Baltimore. It’s a huge financial commitment attached to this consent decree,” McCarthy said.A consent decree, filed in federal court and overseen by a monitor, often is a road map for changes in fundamental police department practices, such as in how officers use deadly force and carry out traffic stops.The Justice Department has the ability to sue cities that refuse to reach such an agreement. The government sued Ferguson, Missouri, under similar circumstances earlier this year after the City Council there balked at the overhaul plan, though the two sides ultimately reached a resolution.“It’s good for both parties because it sets forth the framework of what the city has to do. It sets forth the benchmarks the city has to meet,” Lynch said at a discussion hosted by Politico.The Justice Department opened an investigation into Baltimore’s police department last year, weeks after the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray, who was injured in a police transport van.A harshly critical report in August found that Baltimore police officers routinely discriminate against Blacks, repeatedly use excessive force and are not adequately held accountable for misconduct.Jonathan Smith, the former chief of the Justice Department’s special litigation section, which conducts investigations like the one into Baltimore, cautioned against reading too much into Lynch’s comments. He said it makes sense for the department to look to conclude a major project before the end of the administration, and that a deal was likely very near.“They’re probably extremely close. There’s probably a few things left, and she’s playing the role of the closer,” Smith said.“She wouldn’t do this if they weren’t close and she (didn’t think) she could close it,” he added.____Associated Press writer Juliet Linderman in Baltimore contributed to this report.Follow Eric Tucker on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/etuckerAPlast_img read more

South Sudans Warring Leaders Agree to Share Power Again

first_imgBy The Associated PressSouth Sudan’s warring leaders have agreed to share power once again in the latest effort to end a five-year civil war, officials announced July 25, days after the United States said it was “skeptical” the two men whose rivalry has killed tens of thousands could lead the way to peace.South Sudan’s information minister, Michael Makuei Lueth, announced the agreement between President Salva Kiir and armed opposition leader Riek Machar to reporters in Sudan’s capital, Khartoum.South Sudan’s government says President Salva Kiir (left) and armed opposition leader Riek Machar (right) have agreed to share power in a transitional government in the latest effort to end a five-year civil war. (AP Photo/Mulugeta Ayene)The agreement initialed Wednesday will be signed on Aug. 5, Sudan’s Foreign Minister Al-Dirdiri Mohamed Ahmed said.Kiir will lead South Sudan’s government during a transitional period and Machar will return as first vice president, Sudan’s official SUNA news agency reported.The opposition can “live with” the agreement, but it will fail if early steps such as security arrangements aren’t implemented, Manasseh Zindo, who has been directly involved with the negotiations for Machar’s group, told The Associated Press.A similar arrangement, however, fell apart in July 2016 when fighting erupted in the capital, Juba, and Machar fled the country on foot.The civil war broke out in December 2013 between supporters of Kiir and his then-deputy Machar. More than 2 million people have since fled the country in Africa’s largest refugee crisis since the Rwandan genocide in 1994, while millions of others have been left near famine.Multiple cease-fires, including a “permanent” one signed by Kiir and Machar weeks ago, have been violated within hours. Meanwhile, both sides have been accused of abuses. A U.N. report this month described how government troops and allied forces hung people from trees, burned others alive and raped or gang-raped dozens of women and girls.The new agreement comes as South Sudan’s leaders are under growing pressure from an impatient international community to end the fighting. Under the threat of a U.N. arms embargo Kiir and Machar agreed to resume talks in June, their first face-to-face discussions in nearly two years.Earlier this month the U.N. Security Council imposed the arms embargo anyway.The U.S. earlier this week warned that another power-sharing agreement between Kiir and Machar “may sow the seeds of another cycle of conflict.” The White House press secretary’s statement said the U.S. won’t fund South Sudan’s government or act as guarantor unless the peace process includes civil society, churches, women and other excluded groups and is no longer a “narrow agreement between elites.”The fracturing of South Sudan’s opposition into multiple groups further challenges the new power-sharing agreement as some refuse to sign on.Machar will be among five vice presidents in the new transitional government, according to the 11-page agreement. The government will include 20 ministers from Kiir’s government, nine from Machar’s group and six from other groups.The warring sides also have agreed to share a 550-seat parliament with 332 members from Kiir’s government, 128 from Machar’s group and the rest from other groups.Some South Sudanese who have seen past peace deals come and go reacted to the latest news with wariness.“Working relations between Kiir and Machar is at its lowest level ever and chances of the duo causing another regrettable wave of violence are high,” said Wol Deng Atak, the editor of a newspaper that was forcibly shut down by the government and who now lives in exile.last_img read more

Facebook Shuts Down Controversial Ovano VPN App

first_imgData gathered by Ovano included the names of apps installed on its users’ phones, which reportedly helped the company to identify the growing popularity of Whatsapp early on. These insights ultimately prompted Facebook to acquire Whatsapp for $19 billion in 2014.Facebook’s use of Ovano to collect user data had gotten push-back for some time; Apple forced Facebook to remove the app from its App Store last summer.The last straw may have been a separate market research program: Last month, news broke that Facebook had been paying some users $20 a month to install another market research app on their phones. Facebook ended that program after a clash with Apple, which led to Apple briefly disabling all of Facebook’s internal iOS apps. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Ovano, which promised users an added level of privacy while using public Wifi hotspots, was used by Facebook for market research purposes.Facebook removed the app from the Google Play store Friday, and the company is getting ready to disable it for users who already have the app installed on their phones. “We are shifting our focus to reward-based market research which means we’re going to end the Onavo program,” a Facebook spokesperson told Techcrunch, which was first to report about the changes.Ovano was developed by an Israel-based startup close to a decade ago. Facebook acquired the company in 2013, and subsequently used the app to gather information on the way people were using their mobile phones.center_img Popular on Variety last_img read more
