first_imgOTTAWA — The $60-billion effort to build new warships for the navy has hit another snag, this time in the form of a legal challenge by one of three companies involved in the high-stakes competition to design the vessels.The federal government announced last month that U.S. defence giant Lockheed Martin beat out two rivals in the long and extremely sensitive competition to design replacements for the navy’s frigates and destroyers.Lockheed’s design was based on a new class of frigates for the British navy. The company is now negotiating a final contract with the government and Halifax-based Irving Shipbuilding, which will build the ships.But one of the other two companies, Alion Science and Technology, is now asking the Federal Court to quash the government’s decision, saying Lockheed’s design did not meet the government’s stated requirements and should have been disqualified.Industry insiders had long warned that Lockheed’s selection as the top bidder combined with several changes to the competition after it was launched — including a number of deadline extensions — would spark lawsuits.While the government, Irving and Lockheed Martin are declining to comment, federal officials have previously defended the way the competition was run and expressed confidence about defending the decision in court.Lee Berthiaume, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

first_imgTORONTO – Public backlash prompted Doug Ford to backtrack Tuesday on an election promise to allow housing development in a protected green space around the Toronto region, with the Progressive Conservative leader saying he’s going to listen to those who want the area preserved.A Tory government would maintain the Greenbelt in its entirety and enshrine that pledge in the party’s soon-to-be-released platform, Ford announced in a statement issued a day after saying he’d open the region to some construction to ease the housing crisis in the Greater Toronto Area.“I looked at it as making sure we have more affordable housing,” Ford said of his initial position. “The people have spoken. I’m going to listen to them, they don’t want me to touch the Greenbelt, we won’t touch the Greenbelt.”The Greenbelt — the world’s largest permanently protected green space —is a 7,200-square-kilometre area that borders the Greater Golden Horseshoe region around Lake Ontario. It was protected from urban development by legislation in 2005.Ford’s flip-flop came less than a week before the official start of the provincial election campaign and hours after Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne called his Greenbelt-development pledge “wrongheaded”.“If you open up the Greenbelt and make it into a Swiss cheese map you never get that back,” Wynne said earlier on Tuesday. “You never get that water protection back. You never get that agricultural land protection back.”Wynne had acknowledged that some areas around the border of the Greenbelt have changed since it was established over a decade ago, but that was part of the original plan for the region, she said.The premier had noted that opening up the Greenbelt for development is unnecessary.“The fact is there is enough land in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area to build two more cities the size of the Mississauga,” she said.NDP Leader Andrea Horwath had also slammed Ford’s development pledge, calling it bad policy.“There is no reason whatsoever to even contemplate paving over the Greenbelt unless you’re trying to make a good buck for your friends in the development industry,” she said.Ford had said Monday that for every piece of the Greenbelt opened for development, he would add equivalent land to the protected area to ensure it doesn’t change in size — but he didn’t explain how that would work.Those comments came after the Liberals pointed to an online video of him — apparently taken in early February when he was a Tory leadership candidate — promising to open up a “big chunk” of the protected region.Ford said that after consulting with Ontario residents, he had changed course.“I govern through the people, I don’t govern through government,” he said in explaining the reversal.Mitchell Kosny, associate director of Ryerson University’s school of urban and regional planning, said the Greenbelt was established to control and manage growth. Opening up the area to development would slowly chip away at its integrity, he said.Development in the protected area would also move the problems of urban sprawl to the region, he said.“It means more cars, more highways, more pollution, more travel,” he said. “It goes against everything I think we would now think of as, not even progressive, just mainstream planning.”last_img read more

Rabat – Following in the footsteps of doctors in China and South Korea, Algerian psychologists have opened a private clinic to help addicts suffering from “Facebook dependency.”The private facility, the first of its kind in North Africa, was opened in May in Constantine, a city in eastern Algeria. It offers programs specifically designed to help users who spend huge amounts of time on the social network. This initiative is especially important amid fears that vulnerable users are becoming brainwashed by extremist Islamist groups on the social network.According to The New Arab, the clinic is run by a human development scientist Raouf Boqafa, who is working with a group of psychiatrists to address other addictions such as drugs, alcohol and smoking. The private facility is staffed by addiction specialists and psychologists with a special program to wean users off of Facebook. Algeria has approximately 10 million Facebook users, a number that is expected to grow annually by ten percent.“There is some danger in underestimating the damage of Facebook addiction compared to the risk of physical drugs,” Boqafa said. The Algerian human development scientist compared the effects of the social media network to “black magic”, arguing that Facebook poses the greatest danger.He added that the clinic hopes to “reduce the psychological, social and security damage experienced by one who lives in the virtual world.” read more

Rabat – The US has announced it will axe more than $200 million in aid to Palestinians amid continuous tension over Jerusalem.On Friday, a senior State Department official quoted by Reuters said that the fund would tackle “high-priority projects elsewhere.”The US made a similar move in January, cutting more than half of the financial aid that the US normally provides to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA). Heather Nauert, spokeswoman for the US State Department, explained Trump’s action, saying that the Trump administration would provide only $60 million to the UNRWA. She added that the country would withhold another $65 million “for future consideration.”Nauert said that the move is aimed at encouraging other countries to increase their funding of the UN agency.The move is set to generate more tension between the US and Palestine.Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas announced a boycott against the US peace plan when Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and moved the US embassy to the city.The Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) condemned the US move of cutting more aid, describing it as “the use of cheap blackmail as a political tool. The Palestinian people and leadership will not be intimidated and will not succumb to coercion,” said the organization, as quoted by Al Jazeera. read more

Rabat- Khadija’s parents have filed a complaint against Moroccan-Tunisian tattoo expert, Linda Paradis, for accusing their daughter of lying about receiving involuntary tattoos.Khadija, 17, had claimed she was kidnapped, raped, held in captivity, and tattooed involuntarily this summer. However, a professional tattoo remover calling herself “Linda Paradis” asserted that the tattoos were too old to corroborate her story, suggesting that Khadija was the one who inflicted them on herself.“The skin of the girl was perfectly healed, so her tattoo would go back at least six months. She made her tattoos to hide scars with a knife that she inflicted to herself a year ago or more,” Linda Paradis said in an interview with Arabic outlet Barlamane. “There is no crust, no redness, no inflammation; I have a lot of doubts.… I offered [Khadija] a medical follow-up; she was only asking for money. I also tried to offer psychological support, but it ended badly with the family,” she added.Khadija’s new lawyer, Youssef Chehbi, said in a statement to Moroccan news outlet Le 360, ”If this woman was really a professional as she claims to be, she wouldn’t have disclosed such information about Khadija to change the course of justice.”Linda Paradis’ statements support those of the parents of suspects arrested for raping her. The mother of two suspects said that Khadija asked “for the tattoos and they were not forced on her by anyone.”The mother added that she would defend the victim herself if Khadija were really a victim as she claimed.“She wanted this, she was always knocking on my door asking if my son was home,” the mother told Moroccan television channel Soltana.Another parent questioned Khadija’s allegation, claiming that if what she charged of his son were true, the victim’s father would have filed a complaint about his daughter’s absence.The 17-year-old teenager from Oulad Ayad, a small town near Beni Mellal in central Morocco, recounted that she was held captive and raped by 10 men who tortured her.Khadija explained that she tried to escape several times, but each time she was caught and tortured. “They didn’t give me food or drink, and I was not even allowed to take a shower.”Earlier this week, Moroccan authorities arrested twelve men, aged 18 to 28, on suspicion of raping Khadija. An authority told AFP that the general prosecutor of the Criminal Division of the Beni Mellal Court of Appeal had decided to prosecute and to put the suspects in pre-trial detention.The primary suspect is aged 20 and is being prosecuted for “trafficking a minor, rape, threat of murder, torture, kidnapping and for having a criminal gang.”To show solidarity with the victim, Moroccans have addressed a petition to King Mohammed VI and public authorities to restore Khadija’s dignity. The hashtag #JusticePourKhadija (Justice for Khadija) was also created by social media users. read more

The idea that it’s just about ‘class’ isn’t true. It’s about so much more.“And we now know that Black boys need Black men in their lives.

The study, led by scientists from University College London (UCL), involved monitoring the strength of the pulse travelling towards the brain. Researchers said that healthy, elastic vessels near the heart usually cushion each heartbeat, diminishing its energy and therefore preventing it from reaching delicate blood vessels elsewhere… A simple, five-minute neck scan could predict the potential onset of dementia 10 years before symptoms appear, research has found. Experts hope it could become part of routine screening for those in middle-age at risk of developing the disease. As the heart beats, the physical pulse it generates reaches different parts of the body at different levels of intensity. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

first_imgBOSTON BOMBING SUSPECT Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has told investigators his brother was the leader in last week’s deadly attacks, and that no international terrorist groups were behind them, CNN reported.The network cited an unnamed US government source as saying that “preliminary interviews with Tsarnaev indicate the two brothers fit the classification of self-radicalised jihadists.”“Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, wounded and held in a Boston hospital, has said his brother (Tamerlan, 26) — who was killed early Friday — wanted to defend Islam from attack,” CNN quoted the source as saying.But the surviving suspect indicated that international groups were not part of the brothers’ acts, the report said.The younger Tsarnaev, 19, could face the death penalty after being charged Monday for his alleged role in the attacks that left three people dead and 200 wounded.Dzhokar Tsarnaev was arraigned in his hospital bed on charges of using and conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction, and malicious destruction of property by means of deadly explosives, the US Department of Justice said.The charges Monday, a week on from the twin marathon bombings, as Americans marked the time the bombs went off with a moment of silence observed across the nation, from the White House to the New York Stock Exchange.If Tsarnaev, a naturalised US citizen of Chechen descent, is convicted of the federal charges, he faces time behind bars — or even the death penalty.- © AFP, 2013Read: Dzhokhar Tsarnaev charged in hospital bed, faces death penaltylast_img read more

first_imgAttorney-General Costas Clerides will determine what action, if any, will be taken against a woman identified by a court in 2016 as an accomplice to her husband’s sexual abuse of an underage girl but who continues to work on the Tersefanou school board and is in daily contact with pupils, it emerged on Friday.According to local daily Phileleftheros, the woman’s husband was handed a jail term by the Larnaca district court in December 2016 over the sexual abuse of a minor, and determined that his wife had been involved, aiding and abetting him.Eleven months later, responding to an inquiry by the Greens’ leader Yiorgos Perdikis and Commissioner for Children’s Rights Leda Koursoumba, the school board’s chairman said in a letter that, although he had been aware of the issue all along, the law afforded him no room for action other than reporting the matter to the education ministry.“Police investigated the sexual abuse case near the end 2012, but charged only [the woman’s] husband – not her,” the school board’s letter said.“In November 2016, the court’s ruling recorded her behaviour, of which we had already been informed by the victim’s parents, and the ruling was forwarded to the legal service to establish whether she, too, had committed any crimes. Unfortunately, almost one year later, no charges have been brought against her, and it seems that there will not be.”The board referred the case to the education ministry, asking for instructions, but were told they should seek legal advice as they “could not take a position”.“Our legal advisers told us that there is no legal basis in the school board laws and regulations to initiate disciplinary action against this employee, and if we were to fire her we would eventually be forced to compensate her for her dismissal,” the letter said.In a letter to Education Minister Costas Kadis, dated October 2, 2017, Koursoumba said the primary concern in any decision involving children is the child’s best interest.“Given that [the woman] continues to work in a place where children go to school, I consider it your obligation to take all necessary measures to protect the children,” she said.“If, following the assessment of the children’s best interest, it is concluded that this person’s employment should be terminated, in my view, whether the payment of compensation will be required, and by whom, is not the decisive factor in coming to a decision.”But the ministry has no jurisdiction in the case because it is not the woman’s employer, Kadis said on Friday.“We asked the Legal Service for advice on how to deal with the issue, and were told that the ministry cannot order the dismissal of this employee and that the school board should seek legal advice from its advisers,” Kadis said, adding that the ministry advised the school board accordingly.According to a letter from the ministry to the attorney-general’s office, dated September 15, 2017, the Tersefanou school board conducted a disciplinary probe and ordered the employee to stop appearing at her place of work.Nonetheless, on advice of her lawyer, she went to work as normal the next day and continues to do so, with the school board reluctant to fire her for fear of compensation claims.Sources cited by the Cyprus News Agency said that the next steps will be decided by the attorney-general.What makes the case complicated, CNA added, citing sources, is that the dismissal of people never charged in court is not allowed.The only legally acceptable way for the woman to be dismissed, the sources added, would be for the legal service to bring charges against her over the affair, in which case the school board could fire her.You May LikeGundry MDHow To Make Your Dark Spots Fade (Effortless 2 Minute Routine)Gundry MDUndoLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
