Cable giants step up piracy battle by interrogating Montreal software developer and

first_imgAdvertisement Login/Register With: Canadian cable companies have ratcheted up their war on piracy by launching a new legal battle. The effort has already seen Bell, Rogers and Quebecor’s Videotron search a Montreal software developer’s home and interrogate him for more than nine hours.“The whole experience was horrifying,” says Adam Lackman, founder of TVAddons and defendant in a copyright infringement lawsuit launched by the television giants. “It felt like the kind of thing you would have expected to have happened in the Soviet Union.”Telecoms and content creators Bell, Rogers and Videotron began their piracy battle last year by filing a lawsuit against Canadian dealers who sell “free TV” Android boxes — devices that can be used to stream pirated content.

Ottawa studies risk of pathogen transfers to wild sockeye from fish farms

first_imgVICTORIA – New research released by the federal government says there are minimal risks of farmed Atlantic salmon from British Columbia’s Discovery Islands transferring a deadly viral disease to wild sockeye making their way to the Fraser River.The Department of Fisheries and Oceans said Wednesday the findings are the first in a series of investigations to assess the risk of pathogen transfer associated with aquaculture activities to wild fish in the islands, which are near Campbell River on Vancouver Island.The department said management practices on fish health at the B.C. farms, including a vaccine that is 95 per cent effective, minimizes the risk.“This full detailed risk assessment is the first robust analysis that has ever been completed for examining population level effects of fish pathogen transfer from farmed fish to wild fish,” said Jay Parsons, the department’s director of aquaculture.The research was released as part of a science advisory report on Infectious hematopoietic necrosis virus, a disease that affects fish and trout raised in fresh and salt water.Parsons said the department will conduct risk assessments on nine other diseases known to impact farmed salmon.The risk assessments are part of the work it is doing to address recommendations in an October 2012 commission of inquiry report into the decline of sockeye salmon in the Fraser River.Justice Bruce Cohen made recommendations for improving the future sustainability of the fishery including placing a freeze on net-pen salmon farms in the Discovery Islands until September 2020.Cohen also said the Fisheries Department should prohibit farms in the area completely if it concludes the operations pose more than a minimal risk to Fraser River sockeye.The B.C. government announced Wednesday it will review fish processing plants to ensure waste materials from the operations do not affect wild salmon stocks.Jeremy Dunn of the B.C. Salmon Farmers Association said the industry welcomes both government reviews and will co-operate fully.The area around the Broughton Archipelago off northern Vancouver Island has been the site of ongoing protests at Atlantic salmon farms this year by Indigenous people who say they fear the loss of wild salmon populations.last_img read more

UN agency launches environmental photo contest in Africa

19 June 2009The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), in partnership with Olympus Corporation and the Agence France-Presse (AFP) Foundation, launched an environmental photo contest today in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, inviting works that profile ordinary people working to reduce the effects of climate change. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), in partnership with Olympus Corporation and the Agence France-Presse (AFP) Foundation, launched an environmental photo contest today in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, inviting works that profile ordinary people working to reduce the effects of climate change.The contest, “Picture This: Caring for the Earth,” is open to photographers residing in Africa and is accepting single photos or photo essays that highlight stories that show the people of the continent as stewards of their natural environment, UNDP said in a news release. Special attention will be given to photos that illustrate the role of women in protecting the environment. The contest is inspired by the upcoming UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, in December, which will witness a gathering of 15,000 officials from 200 countries.“The developing world stands to lose the most from the effects of climate change and environmental degradation. Local communities also see what is happening to the natural resources and environment on which they depend for their health, livelihoods and survival,” UNDP Administrator Helen Clark said at the contest launch. Protecting the environment and working to mitigate the effects of climate change lie at the heart of the mandate of the UNDP, which says that effects of climate change are already evident in Africa in the increasing occurrence of drought and desertification, and in the rise in crop failures and health risks associated with temperature changes.Kenyan environmentalist and Nobel Peace Prize winner Wangari Maathai is one of five judges who will choose the winning photos. The other four judges are professional photojournalists, including Peter Magubane, one of South Africa’s most internationally-acclaimed photographers. The deadline for entries, in both the amateur and professional categories, is 31 August 2009.Olympus will provide digital cameras to the winners. The AFP Foundation will sponsor one winner from the professional categories to participate in a two-week working fellowship with an AFP news bureau in Africa. The first-prize winners in all categories will be flown to an awards ceremony and launch of an exhibition of the winning entries in New York in October. The exhibition of winning photos will then travel to Tokyo and Johannesburg. read more

SpinMedia buys Vibe magazine and related websites could mean onlineonly future

by Sarah Skidmore, The Associated Press Posted Apr 25, 2013 4:54 pm MDT SpinMedia has bought Vibe in a deal that could mean the end of the print edition of the famed hip-hop culture magazine.Vibe magazine was founded in 1993 by legendary producer Quincy Jones. The company has changed hands several times and, like many publications, has turned its focus to its online business as the popularity of print has faded among consumers.Under the terms of the deal, digital media company SpinMedia will acquire, and the print rights to Vibe magazine. Financial terms were not disclosed.SpinMedia, previously known as Buzzmedia, owns a number of pop culture brands such as SPIN, Celebuzz, The Frisky and Buzznet. The company did not say in a news release if it would close Vibe’s print publication, but indicated that its focus would be on building Vibe’s digital business.Vibe could follow the path of another landmark music magazine, SPIN, which Buzzmedia acquired last year. The company subsequently halted print production, opting instead for an online-only presence.Julie Walker, a spokeswoman for SpinMedia, said the details surrounding Vibe magazine are still being worked out.Vibe Media CEO Ari Horowitz said in a statement that the company made huge strides developing Vibe as a digital and mobile property over the past year, having doubled its online traffic.“Joining with SpinMedia will enable Vibe to continue to evolve and grow as a vibrant digital media brand,” he said.Vibe was shut down abruptly in 2009 due to a drop in advertising revenue amid an industry slump that killed many magazines. It was later revived by private equity investors.

Ohio State2008201723.41 It was just another night in the national championship game for Saban and the Tide. Since he took over Alabama’s program in 2007, Saban’s team has played for the national title six times, winning five. That’s an 83 percent success rate in a set of games where, according to our Elo ratings, we’d have expected Alabama to win only 57 percent of the time. It’s not outside the realm of something that could happen with good fortune in addition to unmatched talent2A simple t-test gives a p-value of 0.19. — but it’s getting there. 201734.6GeorgiaSEC34.450.5W SchoolFromToAvg.

Georgia went into the game as the Crimson Tide’s mirror image and spent the first half outplaying Bama at its own game. Alabama trailed by 13 points after two quarters for its second-largest halftime deficit of the entire Nick Saban era.1It trailed by 14 against Oklahoma en route to losing the 2014 Sugar Bowl. Its 10-point deficit through three quarters was its fourth-biggest. (The Tide hadn’t overcome either margin in the past.) Alabama was suddenly relying on a freshman QB (Tua Tagovailoa) who’d barely thrown 50 career passes. According to ESPN’s Stats & Information Group, Georgia had an 88.6 percent chance of winning with under four minutes to play.And yet, as (almost) always seems to be the case, Saban’s Alabama squad found a way to win on the game’s greatest stage. With Tagovailoa under center rather than the run-first Jalen Hurts, the Tide threw their way back into the ballgame. It was risky and unconventional, but Saban’s quarterback switch changed the outcome of the game. Even after gifting Georgia new life with Andy Pappanastos’s missed field goal as regulation expired, Alabama bounced back in overtime to send roughly 50,000 Georgia fans home from Mercedes-Benz Stadium in a state of agony and disbelief with this walk-off bomb from Tagovailoa to DeVonta Smith: Alabama usually wins on the championship stagePregame Elo ratings and win probabilities for Alabama in national championship game appearances under Nick Saban (2007-2017) Saban, of course, also tied Bear Bryant for the most championships won by a college football coach. It seems like history gets made every time we watch this Crimson Tide team play for the title, whether they win or lose.Although it’s of little consolation right now, Georgia gave Alabama one of the best championship-game fights it’s gotten during the Saban era. It took only two seasons for ex-Tide assistant Kirby Smart to build his Bulldogs up in Alabama’s image — and nearly upset his former team in the process. UGA will doubtless be a rival for Alabama in the seasons to come.But this season belonged to the Tide in the end, like so many recent seasons have. Ironically, this was not always assured — in addition to spending much of the title game itself in doubt, Alabama had to worry about making the playoff in the first place after failing to qualify for the SEC title game. Yet the final result was one of the surest of sure things in sports today — Alabama being the last team standing when the college football season ends. Oklahoma2008201723.50 Such incredible big-game success has been the cornerstone of the greatest dynasty college football has seen in its modern era. Over the decade from 2008 to 2017, Saban’s Alabama teams have posted an average end-of-season rating of +33.0 per year. (Meaning they ended each season 33 points per game better than the typical FBS team, on average.) Go back to the 1988 season — the first year we can calculate Elo — and no other team is especially close to that mark over a 10-year period.

Royal Ascotwinning jockey forced to retire at 25 with PTSD

first_imgMr Chaloner said: “Injuries heal. I think mentally it takes a lot to get over.”Dr Jerry Hill, Chief Medical Adviser to the British Horseracing Authority, said: “Incidences of PTSD in horseracing are rare – only two cases during my time at the BHA that have led to retirement.“However, horseracing carries a risk for its participants at all times and it is possible, or even likely, that there may have been more underlying cases of this disorder which has affected participants but they may have been unaware or reluctant to come forward to speak about their issues.“British horseracing and the BHA takes its responsibility to its people extremely seriously. Alongside Racing Welfare and the Professional Jockey Association, the BHA are signatories to the Mental Health Charter for sport and recently appointed the mental health charity Mind as an advisory body to assist the sport achieving its commitments to the Charter. Through Racing Welfare the sport has its own dedicated charity supporting its workforce, with a particular focus on mental wellbeing.”Stephen Buckley, Head of Information at mental health charity Mind, said that PTSD can occur either after a single event of a series of traumas and the symptoms can sometimes emerge years later.  George Chaloner in hospital after his fall A Royal Ascot-winning jockey has told how he had to retire at the age of 25 after suffering post traumatic stress disorder following a heavy fall. George Chaloner had just returned from injury when his horse Woodacre fractured a leg and he was thrown to the ground. Just millimetres from paralysis, he broke a vertebrae and his foot. He now suffers flashbacks and says that he will never ride again. Mr Chaloner cannot remember getting on the horse or riding the race, saying: “All I remember is horses going over the top of me and then waking up in hospital.””Being in hospital laid on my back in a brace I just thought someone was trying to tell me something. It stopped my career, it stopped the only thing I ever knew. “Being told I was half a centimetre from being paralysed – it was a big shock.” George Chaloner on Stamp Hill in 2016  Paul Struthers, Chief Executive of The Professional Jockeys Association (PJA), said that he was only aware of one other case of a jockey suffering with PTSD. “George’s case was dreadful. He had a very bad fall and spent a lot of time and hard work on his rehabilitation and then on his very first ride back from that injury he had this other awful fall,” Mr Struthers said.”I do think that this is rare for jockeys. The historic term of ‘your bottle is gone’ is very different to PTSD, which is a very specific condition which prompts a physical response, but there may have been people in the past whose ‘bottle had gone’ who may have been suffering with PTSD.”Though falls are “part and parcel” of racing for flat racers they only occur on avers once every 250 rides. With a lot of “very hard work” and support from the Jockey Education and Training Scheme (JETS), Mr Chaloner has now found himself a new job on the management team of Pontefract Racecourse. According to a survey released yesterday by the Professional Players’ Federation (PPF), more than half of former professional sportspeople have had concerns about their mental or emotional well being since retiring.  George Chaloner in hospital after his fall He said: “Symptoms of PTSD can include vivid flashbacks, nightmares, lack of sleep and feeling emotionally cut-off. “Athletes experience a unique set of pressures in their jobs; from getting past the finish line, to winning trophies, to facing media scrutiny and meeting the high expectations of adoring fans. Approaching retirement is a difficult time for many sportspeople, including jockeys, who have often spent their entire lives being defined by their sport. So coming to terms with life after a career in sport can be particularly challenging.“Mind has seen an increase in sportspeople publically revealing their own battles with mental health problems including; depression, PTSD and self-harm.“It doesn’t matter who you are, whether you’re a jockey, a taxi driver, new mum or student, everyone should all be able to access timely mental health support when they need it. If you think you might be experiencing a mental health problem seeking help is one of the most important things you can do. If someone has been living with distressing symptoms for over a month after a traumatic event, they should see their GP, who can refer you for specialist help.“Speak to a friend or family member or go to your GP, who can talk you through the support that’s available or call the Mind Infoline on 0300 123 3393 for more information.”center_img Whilst commonly associated with soldiers PTSD can affect anyone who experiences a trauma, with NHS research suggesting that it is around one in 20 people.   Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Mr Chaloner, who won a race at Royal Ascot then the Northumberland Plate at Newcastle in just one week in 2014, had gotten back in the saddle for the race in Newcastle in February last year after three months of rehab from a fall in Wolverhampton. He told the BBC: “It started when I was in hospital in Newcastle. I’d be falling asleep and then all of a sudden I just remember falling off the horse, hitting the deck and waking up.  “It would just be like a flashback of literally you would be on the horse for like two seconds before its head disappearing and you’d be flat out on your back and waking up in hospital.”People used to say to me when they used to visit  that it would be like I had been for a run and I was out of breath and then suddenly I’d be wide awake and wouldn’t know where I was.”It continued for just six months, and eventually Mr Chaloner was diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which is rare in his sport. At first he could not even watch anyone else racing, particularly his partner Shelley Birkett, who also rides on the flat. Mr Chaloner, who hails from a well known racing family, said: “I never planned for a second career. I have ended up having to retire at 25. I have a plate in my ankle, both feet have got metal work in, my shoulder has got metal work in, I have 27 screws in me all together – if they weighed me in I would be worth a fortune I would say.”I realised that I wasn’t going to ride again, I got told that I wasn’t going to ride again. It was a big shock because I always though I would be a jockey and I’d be doing that for as long as I could. ” George Chaloner on Stamp Hill in 2016 Credit:Rex/Shutterstocklast_img read more

Cornwalls World Heritage extends an arm down under

first_imgFollowing the successful bid to grant World Heritage Site (WHS) status to the mining landscape of both Cornwall and West Devon in England, the team behind the project is now building links with Cornish Mining communities across the world. This week sees international mining heritage heritage consultant Barry Gamble, from that southwest region of England, travelling to South Australia on behalf of the Cornish Mining WHS Office to provide professional guidance at a conference that could result in key Australian sites seeking World Heritage status as part of an international ‘Cornish Mining Frontiers’ initiative. The Cornish Mining landscape was given World Heritage status in recognition of the area’s globally-important role in technological innovation, industrialisation and cultural development. Cornish miners were behind projects to prise some of the first diamonds out of the ground in South Africa and it was Cornish miners who first introduced football to Mexicans when they worked in the silver mines of the Sierra Madres. Given that nearly half of the settlers in South Australia in the 1860s were Cornish miners, Barry Gamble is now heading there to support a community consultation in the areas of Burra and Moonta.Both of these places were strongholds of the global copper mining industry from around the mid-19th century and thanks to the use of Cornish mining expertise and methods, went on to become pivotal precursors to Australia’s multi-billion dollar mineral industry.The Cornish Mining WHS team regards these pioneer mines – which spawned Australia’s earliest industrial towns – as intimately linked with Cornwall’s own mining landscape and the indication is that the Australian government is likely to back a trans-national bid for World Heritage Status. A resident of Plympton and Interim Director at Morwellham Quay, Barry Gamble is part of the original team that presented the Cornish Mining bid to UNESCO, resulting in the successful inscription on the World Heritage List in 2006.“The cultural and historical significance of the Burra and Moonta sites is of truly international significance,” says Gamble. “They were once among tthe world’s greatest copper mines and a large part of that is down to the Cornish. During the 1850s and 1860s these were the largest inland towns in Australia and they flourished thanks to the skills, knowledge and experience of Cornish miners who emigrated there for work. Ironically, it was that competition from overseas that actually contributed substantially to the demise of our native mining industry. Achieving a linked World Heritage Status for these far-off regions would really be the final part of our story so we’re really hoping to take them forward and make sure that this history and these ties are preserved and celebrated.”Deborah Boden, World Heritage Site Co-ordinator, says, “Raising awareness of the pivotal role played by mine workers from Cornwall and West Devon in the development of mining as a global industry is an important part of our role at the World Heritage Site Office. Much of our work is focussed on communicating the fact that the Cornish Mining landscape is an international asset, with significance for people across the world. The impact of Cornish mine workers as an industrial force can still be seen on every continent. The Burra and Moonta areas are perfect examples of this, and we’re working hard to create official links between both the national governments and local communities, so that people can explore this shared heritage and fully understand the importance of how Cornish mining shaped these places.”Adam Paynter, Executive Member for Environment and Heritage at Cornwall County Council says, “This is an extremely exciting development and testament to all of the hard work that’s been put in by the World Heritage Site team at Cornwall County Council.  Taking our Cornish mining heritage to the international audience in this way elevates its importance in the world’s mining heritage more than ever before.”last_img read more

Sober Ireland Your experiences with not drinking

first_imgLAST WEEK, WE brought you the experiences of two people who don’t drink.The piece generated a lot of interest and prompted a large number of people to get in contact. These are some of your responses.I don’t like the taste“I am a 26 year old female non-drinker  and I have no issue at all with people who chose to drink. I don’t drink because, quite simply, I do not like the taste I get off alcoholic drinks (and yes I have tasted loads).“I don’t mind nightclubs in the earlier part of the night but find I do need to get out by 1/1:30am -when the switch flicks- at the very very latest as my tolerance level has hit rock bottom between the messiness, the fights, the hands that land everywhere and anywhere, the guys who do not want to take no for an answer, it just turns into a horrible experience.“I personally think it is easier to be a non-drinker in Ireland than it is to be someone who generally drinks but decides not to on a given night, these poor souls generally tend to get a lot of earache, while I am left alone and accepted for not drinking. ”It wasn’t for me“I’m 31 and I stopped drinking about nine years ago, mainly because it was just not for me, no moral high ground, no addiction, no religious reasons.I still socialise in pubs on a regular basis and I have absolutely no issue with anyone who takes a drink.“On the whole people are very accepting of my teetotal lifestyle and in general don’t make a big deal of it.”It impacts my social lifeI’m a single dad and don’t drink more than four to six units a year but the social life suffers as everything is based around drink.I joined a badminton club but all of their social evenings are at the pub, then joined a running club to run last years Dublin marathon.“Regular drinkers there too. On the continent there are later opening cafes, bistros, restaurants where the onus isn’t on getting drunk by 11pm.” Source: Yui Mok‘People are shocked’I am a 21 year old non drinker who attends college and I have never drank. Not for any particular reason. I just decided it wasn’t for me at a young age. I do still go out with friends to pubs, clubs and house parties.“My friends are actually very used to the fact that I don’t drink and don’t take any notice of it any more. The problem is when I go to a house party or meet new people who when they find out I don’t drink do one of 2 things: question me Continously for the whole night on why I don’t drink, have I ever etc… Or else they offer me a coke and treat me like a bit of an alien and ignore me.Young people genuinely believe they have to drink to have a good night. Most would not even consider heading to a pub/club without pre drinking because “they’re only good when you’re drunk.“Over the past 5/6 years I have learned to ignore it but being the sober one people expect you to take responsibility and fix all the messes. It sounds horrible but it always surprises me how there aren’t more drinking related fatalities among young people.”‘Quitting gave me confidence’“I am a 33 year old male who quit alcohol over three years ago.“I decided to quit as I was sick of the hangovers and just wanted to live a better life really..I saw quitting alcohol as a tool to increase my confidence, improve my health and to be an all round decent person – they were my motivators.. I used to rely on alcohol to help me socialize, talk to girls, to help me live a good life, but it just isn’t healthy to rely on alcohol to do these things.It is very hard in Ireland to go out and just have 1 or 2 drinks and leave it like that. I have been alcohol free for three years and I haven’t come across one person on a night out (that includes people from 18 -70 years old) who has just had one or two drinks and leaves it at that. I don’t want to come across as judgemental but there is a huge amount of denial with people around their drinking habits..“I must admit my social life has taken a bit of a hit since I quit. I don’t look forward to nights out like I used to because the majority of people still get drunk.. I do enjoy life and appreciate the smaller things in life a lot more than I used to.”Read: Sober Ireland: What’s it like to not drink in Ireland?last_img read more

BioShock Infinite demo dated first 2minutes video released

first_imgWe’ve got a couple of pieces of good news for BioShock fans today. The first is that Irrational Games has dated the BioShock Infinite PC demo. You’ll be able to download it on July 7 from GT.TV. It will be made available following a 30-minute preview special on Spike which will include guest Ken Levine, creative director at Irrational.As a prelude to that, Levine has posted the first two minutes of gameplay from the demo on YouTube for us all to watch. The footage, and the 15-minute demo being made available next week, were both shown behind closed doors during E3 last month.AdChoices广告Gamers have already been impressed by BioShock Infinite based on the 10-minute gameplay trailer that was released in September last year. The chance to finally play the game will surely put GT.TV’s servers under a lot of strain come July 7. You can understand why they decided not to make it available before the holiday weekend.Both the first two games met with great reviews and feedback from gamers, so Irrational has a lot to live up to with this third title. Where as BioShock 2 was set a decade after the first game and still within the confines of Rapture, BioShock Infinite takes you out of that environment and instead is set in 1912 on a floating city called Columbia. A civil war across the isolated city has left just two factions: the Founders and the Vox Populi. You, as disgraced agent Booker DeWitt, are sent to the city to rescue a woman named Elizabeth. In order to get her off the island expect the usual mix of BioShock FPS action.There’s still no definite release date for the game, and retailers like Amazon just have it listed as December 31. With a demo out next week, though, we hope it arrives a lot sooner than that on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.via Irrational Gameslast_img read more

Bahamas to take part in Tourism Health and Safety Programme

first_imgThe Bahamas will now take special care of the health and well-being of its tourists and nationals through a newly launched initiative called The Tourism Health and Safety Programme (THP). The programme has been developed in collaboration with the Trinidad-based Caribbean Integrated Public Health Agency (CARPHA) as part of a regional tourism and health project funded by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).Bahamas is one of the six participating countries in the initiative and aims at providing cost effective and quality solutions to health, safety and environmental sanitation threats impacting sustainable tourism in the Caribbean.The genesis of the project lies in the fact that the health of Caribbean economies, including The Bahamas, are closely related to the health of its tourism industry given that the Caribbean is the most tourism-dependent region in the world.“I believe that we only stand to benefit from ensuring that our guests are healthy and protected. With tourists being much more conscious about their health when they travel, it is important that we take steps to ensure that they not only feel safe, but have health facts readily available about our country,” said Tourism Minister, Obie Wilchcombe.Enhancing sustainable tourism will not only improve the overall quality of life but also eradicate poverty and lead to significant economic development.last_img read more
