In no rush on TPP Trudeau says as feds dismiss reports of

first_imgHO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam – Canada won’t be pressured into prematurely signing a deal on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Thursday as his Liberal government flatly denied media reports of a “deal in principle” on the Pacific Rim trade pact.The 11 remaining TPP economies, including Canada, have been trying to salvage the deal after U.S. President Donald Trump pulled out earlier this year.But Trudeau’s remarks, along with signals from government insiders, suggest the Liberals — who are currently preoccupied with rescuing NAFTA — hope to avoid making any hurried commitments on the treaty during this week’s APEC meetings in Danang.“We’re not going to sign a deal just because we feel pressured into a signing a deal — we’re going to make sure that it’s right for Canada and it’s right for the world,” Trudeau said during an armchair discussion in front of 1,200 students at Ton Duc Thang University in Ho Chi Minh City.“We’re in no rush to do that, so we’re going to take our time and look carefully at the negotiations.”Trudeau is scheduled to meet Friday in Danang with his counterparts from the other TPP countries, where they will also take part in the Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation summit.A media report surfaced Thursday citing the Japanese economy minister as saying that the pact’s remaining countries had agreed in principle on a way to proceed with the TPP — a report that was quickly quashed by International Trade Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne.“Despite reports, there is no agreement in principle on TPP,” Champagne tweeted.Trudeau, who insisted he’s a strong supporter of free trade as long as it benefits everyone, also gave a lengthy explanation on why the updated TPP should contain more robust protections for culture through exemptions.“Culture is more than just an economic good,” he said. “When you look at culture as just another economic box to be ticked off or filled, you’re not understanding how important it is in shaping the identity of a community and of a country.”Behind the scenes, Canada doesn’t want to charge ahead and sign the deal Friday just because the leaders have all gathered in one spot, said a senior government official who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the matter.One reason why Canada wants more time is because of the still-unknown outcome of the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement, the official said.Ottawa has been seeking changes to the TPP, or even an exemption or side letter, so that it would avoid inadvertently harming Canada, regardless of the outcome from the NAFTA talks, said the official.As an example, the official noted Canada’s unique situation among TPP economies of having a deeply integrated auto-supply chain with another country. Auto parts can cross the U.S.-Canada border a half-dozen times before they are installed into a vehicle and, therefore, more changes might be needed to the TPP’s rules-of-origin thresholds.Canada has also been trying put its mark on TPP, which was negotiated by the former Conservative government, by pushing its partners to include “progressive” chapters on the environment, gender equality and labour rights.The official said the countries should take more time to get the whole deal right — and to raise the bar.Trump, the official added, only pulled out of the Pacific Rim deal about 10 months ago, while the first discussion by the remaining countries’ officials on how to reshape a post-U.S.. TPP only happened five months ago.Australia, Japan and Singapore had already ratified the TPP and, after Trump withdrew, the official said they were urging the others to just do it, but Canada has insisted the U.S. departure has deeper ramifications than just minus one.The official acknowledged a couple of people around the table might say Canada is being obstructionist, but that it’s probably due to their own domestic pressure to sign the deal.Eric Miller, a Washington trade consultant, said Canada address these concerns by agreeing to sign on to a mechanism to review the TPP.“The countries are going to be deal-minded, but (a review) is going to be more than a legal scrub,” said Miller, president of the Rideau Potomac Strategy Group, which has advised different clients on trade issues, including Industry Canada.“There’s going to have to be some new pieces put on the table, but it’s going to be less than the full-on renegotiation, where you essentially throw everything out and start again.”last_img read more

UN envoy condemns attack from Lebanese territory that killed Israeli soldier

Mr. Roed-Larsen, UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, said in a statement issued in New York that the attack “constitutes a clear violation of the Blue Line and Security Council resolutions and could escalate tension between Israel and its northern neighbours.”He called on all sides to use diplomacy and take no action that “could increase the already high level of tension in the region.”In the meantime, Secretary-General Kofi Annan has asked Mr. Roed-Larsen to be active in his contacts with all parties, including regional governments, “at this difficult and dangerous juncture,” a UN spokesman said. “The Secretary-General is increasingly concerned at the risk of escalation.”In Jerusalem, the Special Coordinator was to meet with the Director General of the Israeli Foreign Ministry, Yoav Birar.Meanwhile, the UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), responsible for confirming the Israeli withdrawal from its northern neighbour, is investigating the incident and it has increased its patrols along the Blue Line. read more

UNbacked AsiaPacific meeting told high growth environmentally unsustainable

“We cannot continue with a ‘grow first, clean up later’ policy,” the Executive Secretary of the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) Kim Hak-Su told the Fifth Ministerial Conference on Environment and Development in Asia and the Pacific. “We need a new paradigm, a balance of economic growth and ‘green growth.'”He told delegates from 53 countries attending the six-day meeting that while the region’s recent spectacular economic growth has contributed to the reduction of poverty and social progress in many places, “it has also placed increasingly high pressure on the region’s environmental resources beyond its carrying capacity.”Industrial production in the region increased by almost 40 per cent as compared with a global increase of 23 per cent from 1995 to 2002. Increasing economic growth itself is placing enormous pressure on environmental carrying-capacity. In order to grow without jeopardizing environmental sustainability, not only pollution control but improvement of eco-efficiency of production and consumption are necessary.Mr. Kim congratulated governments for efforts to boost environmental performance, which have resulted in improvements in urban air quality in some cities, slowed rates of forest loss, increased forest planting rates and considerably reduced the use of ozone-depleting substances.”On the other hand we still observe with concern declines in fishery resources, degradation of marine and coastal resources, loss of biodiversity and forests, land degradation and natural disasters,” he said. “Deterioration of these natural resources have continued to affect human health and livelihoods, and increased the vulnerability of many economies.”The Conference, organized by ESCAP under the theme this year of “Achieving environmentally sustainable economic growth in Asia and the Pacific,” is held once in every five years. Thirty-one Ministers in charge of the environment will take part in the Ministerial Segment set for 28 to 29 March. read more

East Rennell region in Solomon Islands placed on UN list of world

The UNESCO World Heritage Committee determined that “logging is threatening the outstanding universal value of East Rennell,” and asked the national authorities to provide an impact assessment study of this activity, which is taking place outside the site’s core area, UNESCO said in a news release.East Rennell is the largest raised coral atoll in the world and its dense forest has a canopy averaging 20 metres in height. The forests, which cover most of the land area of the 37,000-hectare site, are an essential component of the atoll, which is considered to be a natural laboratory for scientific study.Inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1998, the site makes up the southern third of Rennell Island, the southernmost island in the Solomon Island group in the western Pacific.The List of World Heritage in Danger is designed to inform the international community of threats to the outstanding universal values for which a property has been inscribed, and to encourage corrective action.In other news, the Committee yesterday removed the Iranian World Heritage site of Bam and its cultural landscape from the list of sites in danger citing improvements in the management and conservation of the site.Bam was inscribed on the World Heritage List in 2004, shortly after it was struck by a major earthquake. Damage caused by the quake warranted the site’s simultaneous inscription on the List of Heritage in Danger. The Committee, which is currently holding its 37th session in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, noted that remains of the desert citadel had been sufficiently stabilized and its management was sound enough for the site to be declared safe. read more

Myanmar UN expert urges Government to do more to protect rights of

A United Nations human rights expert today urged the Government of Myanmar to do more to protect children in the country, citing cases of detention and alleged incidents of child labour and marriage. “I stand ready to assist in any way I can to achieve a Myanmar where the rights and fundamental freedoms of all are respected and fully realized,” said the Special Rapporteur on human rights in Myanmar, Yanghee Lee, in her remarks to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva. She reminded the Government that this obligation extended to all children within its jurisdiction, including all those from the Rohingya minority living in Rakhine state. She expressed concern that at least 13 children were being held by police in Rakhine, stressing that detention should be strictly “a last resort.” She also called for an immediate Government investigation into the death in custody of one of the 13, to fully probe the circumstances including why the death was not reported for four months. Ms. Lee also expressed concern about the situation of Rohingya children who have fled Myanmar, especially the reported recent rise in the number of child brides among women and girls now living in neighbouring countries. She also expressed shock at the recent case of a girl working as a domestic servant and who had been abused by her employers. On a more positive note, Ms. Lee congratulated Myanmar on becoming a mid-ranked country in the human development index. Special Rapporteurs and independent experts are appointed by the Human Rights Council to examine and report back on a specific human rights theme or a country situation. The positions are honorary and the experts are not UN staff, nor are they paid for their work. read more

Aussie Lego Acropolis off to Greece

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The Lego Acropolis that has attracted more than 100,000 visitors at Nicholson Museum in Sydney will now be seen by millions of people on the other side of the world in its new home, the Acropolis Museum. The Nicholson Museum has graciously donated the Lego piece to the Acropolis museum, after they themselves asked if they could borrow the work to attract younger visitors.“After a sleepless night, finding difficult to believe how honourable the Greek request was, I got back to the museum and said no, they couldn’t borrow it. We’d give it to them for free!” Nicholson Museum senior curator Michael Turner said. The mammoth Lego Acropolis took creator Ryan McNaught 300 hours to build and used more than 120,000 LEGO bricks.The piece has recreated what the Acropolis looked liked in its prime, with the Parthenon standing completed next to the Temple of Nike, all accessible from a Lego Propylaea.Throughout the maze of buildings and temples, you’ll find little Lego Oedipus, Lego Lord Elgin and Lego Theseus in the labyrinth facing a LEGO Minotaur.Some new additions will give someone with a good eye a bit of a chuckle, with a Lego Elton John performing in the Theatre of Dionysus.Mr McNaught is the only Lego-certified professional in the southern hemisphere and built the Nicholson Museum’s extremely popular Lego Colosseum that attracted 90,000 visitors in 2012. Curator Michael Turner says he wants to show an example with his gift. “Maybe the British Museum refuses to give back the Elgin Marbles but we will offer an entire Acropolis as a gift to the Acropolis Museum.”The Nicholson Museum will replace the space in January with a new model, this time a Lego Pompeii.Source: Greekreporter Australialast_img read more

Sifton homeowner suspect in drug sales

first_imgThe owner of a Sifton-area home raided Thursday by the Clark-Vancouver Regional Drug Task Force and her boarder are the primary suspects in an investigation into alleged drug trafficking out of the house.A search warrant affidavit filed in Clark County District Court indicates that investigators suspect homeowner Leslie E. Dyson, 45, who lives at the residence, and her boarder, Katelynn M. Misener, 24, may have been involved in selling heroin and methamphetamine out the house at 7120 N.E. 131st Ave.Charges have not yet been filed against either women in connection with the raid, said Mike Cooke, who heads the regional drug task force. Misener, who has a criminal history of misdemeanor thefts, was arrested Thursday on suspicion of methamphetamine possession in connection with a different case. Dyson, who has no criminal history, was not arrested during the raid.The Clark County Sheriff’s Office had received several complaints from neighbors regarding suspected drug activity at the house and finding drug paraphernalia in their yards from the house’s visitors, according to the affidavit by sheriff’s Detective Brian Kessel.Kessel conducted surveillance on the house several times in September, according to the affidavit.“During my surveillance, I noted significant short-term traffic at the residence,” Kessel wrote. “Based on my training, knowledge and experience, this is consistent with a residence that is involved in distributing controlled substances.”last_img read more

Parents feel sticker shock at rising price of high school activity fees

first_imgClasses in Juneau are just starting on Thursday, but some high school activities have been underway for weeks. This school year, the district has drastically cut funding for activities and athletics, leaving some parents paying hundreds of dollars more for their kid to participate.Download AudioThe JDHS swim team practices at Augustus Brown Swimming Pool, Aug. 19, 2015. (Photo by Jeremy Hsieh/KTOO)Michelle Norman has two kids at Thunder Mountain High School. Her daughter is on the swim and dive team. At the first parent meeting for the activity, she was asked to pay “an activity fee of $600 and approximately $150 travel fee for each meet out of Juneau.”Last year, Norman paid $275.She says this higher fee struck her as ridiculous. So Norman did her own research on travel costs to meets in Ketchikan and Sitka, and says the $600 activity fee only makes sense if her daughter qualifies for state competition.“My daughter has a good chance of qualifying for state and I expect if that happened that I’d contribute more, but I’m not comfortable with paying $600 now for a $200 expense,” Norman says.According to Juneau School Board policy, individual activity fees for participation and travel must be approved by the activities director and the superintendent. For students who are in financial need, the district has a scholarship fund.Superintendent Mark Miller says he hasn’t approved any activity fees.“To my knowledge we do not have actual individual fees,” he says.Miller doesn’t call the costs put on students or parents “fees.”“Different sports are going about fundraising in different ways and some are asking for contributions from participants in order to limit or defray the amount of fundraising that they do,” Miller says.Thunder Mountain High School Activities Director Jake Jacoby says every fall sport does have an activity fee.“This is an individual fee that varies from activity to activity and it’s very low for activities that have low budget needs and it’s pretty darn high for the more expensive programs,” Jacoby says.He says $600 for the swim and dive team isn’t the highest. The coaches come up with the fees, and Jacoby approves them, but he hasn’t taken them to the superintendent.Jacoby says the fees go toward gear and travel, but the cost shouldn’t be coming out of pocket.“There are fundraising opportunities that need to be provided by the teams in order for students to raise the money,” Jacoby says.In an email from the swim and dive booster board at Thunder Mountain High School, parents were instructed to “bring your checkbook” to an Aug. 4 meeting. The main fundraising event is selling Christmas trees and parents were asked to think of other ideas.Due to district budget cuts to activities, Jacoby says everyone – coaches, booster clubs, parents, activities directors – is working through a new process this year.“I have had conversations with various coaches within the last week about fundraising and funding and we’ll continue to do so as all teams figure out what this means as far as funding all of their own travel,” Jacoby says.Last school year the district budgeted about $1.5 million for the high school activities program, including staff. About $600,000 of that went toward travel.For this school year, the district budgeted less than a million dollars for high school activities. Close to $600,000 of that came from the Juneau Assembly, and the majority of it goes toward administrative costs.Superintendent Miller says in the past, the district covered the majority of travel costs for high school activities.“Unfortunately we’ve been dipping into the bank in order to cover those costs and our bank account ran dry last year and so this is really the first year that we’ve had to say we can’t go over what we’ve allocated under any circumstance and we can’t allocate what we used to,” Miller says.The district has set aside $150,000 of the Juneau Assembly money for potential travel to state competitions, travel that teams don’t necessarily budget for because it’s last minute. It’s hard to say if that’s enough money because it depends on how well teams do. There will likely still be fundraising post-postseason.last_img read more

Bigg Boss Marathi 2 Shivani Surve spits on Parag Kanheres face viewers

first_imgBigg Boss Marathi 2 contestants Shivani Surve, Parag KanhereColors MarathiEver since Shivani Surve has entered into Bigg Boss Marathi 2 house, she has had been constantly targetting Abhijeet Bichukale for every other reason. Last night, she created ruckus when she misunderstood Abhijeet’s point over who will cook that night. She later got into a heated argument with Veena which Abhijeet thought that the fight was staged to grab viewers’ attention. But Shivani crossed all her limits when she spat on Parag Kanhere’s face in the bathroom area.During the last few minutes of the episode, Shivani can be seen poking Parag intentionally be it by throwing her footwear in his path or splashing water on his face. Parag looked visibly angered by Shivani’s behaviour but he managed to keep his cool. But Shivani was unstoppable and it looked as if she had already thought of troubling Parag as soon as she comes across him.When both Shivani and Parag landed in the bathroom area, Parag was seen washing his face while Shivani was seen brushing her teeth leaving the water tap completely open. Shivani then started splashing water on Parag’s face and sportingly joined the act saying that it would’ve been better if she could also apply soap to his face. After which, Shivani spat the toothpaste foam on Parag’s face.Shivani’s disgusting act left Parag fuming with anger. However, he kept his composure and asked Shivani, in a mild tone, to do such thing again when he would not be wearing the mic.Not just Parag, but even Bigg Boss Marathi 2 viewers have disapproved of Shivani’s behaviour and called it pathetic. Take a look.I agree that Parag was wrong, काही गरज नव्हती Abhijit वर personal comment चीBut whatever #Shivani did with #Parag that was more pathetic ही बाई खरच Psycho आहेShe need doctor @manjrekarmahesh #BiggBossMarathi2 #BiggBossMarathi— Pri (@pri_vedi) June 1, 2019#BiggBossMarathi2 #BBMarathi2  Ho God Is #shivani normal What is that screaming on #parag s face Putting her leg while he is walking Spilling and throwing water on him Does she even know that there is a world outside Her parents would be feeling ashamed of her — ❤HONEST GIRL❤ (@BiggBossAddict) May 31, 2019Just a question for all the pseudo feminism – just imagine the act done by #shivani at washroom with parag was done by a boy what will u call it ? “Areee aurtooo ki respect Karna nhi ata n all blah blah shit ” @manjrekarmahesh #BigBossMarathi2 #BBMarathi2 #BBMarathi— amrita pawar (@Amritapawar2) May 31, 2019If sum1 has faced difficulties in life, he/she becomes humble and more aware of others prob.. #Shivani behaving the worst..#BiggBossMarathi2 — True Colors (@bhatnagar_an) May 31, 2019last_img read more

As part of this initiative, the society is bringing together pharmaceutical developers, the imaging community, biomarker manufacturers and regulatory agencies to address critical needs for incorporating imaging biomarkers into multicenter trials.What many clinicians want to know is just how quickly the network will launch its cross-industry research, and what diseases will be targeted first. To find out, Imaging Technology News (ITN) spoke with the chair of SNM’s Clinical Trials Group and past president of the society’s Nuclear Oncology Council, Alexander J.B. (Sandy) McEwan, M.D. ITN: SNM launched the new Clinical Trials Network to put biomarker development on the fast track. Could you describe in more detail the mission of the program?Dr. McEwan: It is really to provide a framework to facilitate the use of radiolabeled probes as biomarkers. In the first instance, it’s obviously targeted at trying to help pharmaceutical industry trials. There are a number of reasons for doing this. The first is that there really is a lack of certainty of how to use radiolabeled probes as biomarkers in clinical trials. So whether it’s the pharmaceutical industry or a corporative group study, or ultimately its an in-house study, many of the issues that have plagued FDG in that setting relate to standardization, quality control and quality assurance, and quality imaging sites with those oncology groups who participate in clinical trials. There are real questions to be answered in terms of quantification. There is no doubt that some of the new targeted biologics are going to require the ability to measure changes in metabolic profile. I think there is some interest in the pharmaceutical industry in using non-FDG probes to help in developing clinical trials with new drugs in terms of learning how to stratisfy patients, measure response and characterize response. So we felt that the right thing to do was, step one, to develop clinical trials. Then look at taking the program further once we have it up and running, and once we have proved our thesis that what we are making it useful.ITN: Why would the pharmaceutical industry be interested in using non-FDG probes? Dr. McEwan: FDG measures glucose metabolic rate, which is important, but I think that some of the new targeted pharmaceuticals are going to be in characterizing a receptor, characterizing a transport mechanism, characterizing some internal activity. So, for example, if you take a drug like gemcitabine, something between 20-40 percent of patients with pancreatic cancer respond to it, and 60 percent don’t. We don’t know which do and which don’t. I have a pretty sure idea that we can actually design a probe that will answer that question. So with future drugs, if we know a certain percent respond, then how do we enrich populations to help the clinical trial, and to how do we actually go the FDA or CMS and say we can actually identify the patients that are going to respond. So it is starting this idea of personalized medicine. I think the pharmaceutical industry will be interested because it’s a way to enrich a population, to stratisfy a patient or to characterize a patient population. ITN: Now, SNM and the International Partnership for Critical Markers of Disease (CMOD) co-hosted a meeting on FDA requirements for manufacturing PET radiopharmaceuticals. Was this tied into the mission of the Clinical Trials Network to put biomarker development on the fast track? Dr. McEwan: Yes it is. Remember PET pharmaceuticals, and we are talking about fluorine, have to be made on site or within a short shipping distance. So one of the questions is: Does that mean every site is a manufacturing site? We’re hoping that by developing a common IND and manufacturing file, we can facilitate the spread of the technology by those sites that are manufacturing referencing back to our file.ITN: What are some of the hurdles of developing PET radiopharmaceuticals?Dr. McEwan: The hurdles are first of all having a manufacturing recipe or file that is consistent and enables quality across multiple sites. The second is ensuring that there is biological equivalence across all of the sites. The next is making sure that you have an appropriate reporting mechanism for audit purposes. Our first plan is to use compounds that have been described to have already been used in man. ITN: What are some of the major diseases that could benefit from the Clinical Trials Network and the meeting on FDA requirements for manufacturing PET radiopharmaceuticals? You mentioned pancreatic cancer. Dr. McEwan: I am going to start very broadly and say cancer because it’s going to be very much dependent on the clinical trial that the pharmaceutical company wants to run. So if they have a compound that is against cancer “X,” that would be the one that we would look at. We are not in the position of picking the cancer; what we are doing is facilitating. With FLT it would be cancers that are affecting proliferative capability. So, that will be driven by industry. But it will be cancer first and probably nuerological diseases second, starting with Alzheimer’s disease. But I don’t know. One of the reasons that FDG is not used routinely in clinical trials is that we have not yet had this type of capacity to facilitate industry trials. By building this capacity we really do see a method to ensure standardization, quality, quality control, quality assurance. What we hope is when this is up and running, it really does become a tool that enables industry and corporative groups to speed trials through, and also to give the FDA some confidence that the quality parameters are really being looked after. If this had been in place five years ago, FDG might be used much more routinely in the clinical trial setting. Bio: Alexander J.

I’m thankful for the Knight Foundation’s support in recognizing the importance of data journalism education and honored to be part of the Knight Chair program.”The Knight Chairs initiative supports 26 leaders in journalism working to improve education for journalists in the United States.A 2001-2002 Harvard Nieman Fellow and winner of the prestigious García Márquez Award for Excellence in Journalism, Segnini helped bring the practice of data journalism to Latin American newsrooms.

She resigned from La Nación during a management dispute in 2014.More recently, Segnini participated in the Pulizer Prize-winning Panama Papers investigation, and worked with Univision to oversee a project focused on the poor regulation of cruise ships.
