No human rights violation complaints related to infrastructure projects

“There are many accepted procedures that have to be followed to mobilize foreign financing for a particular project such as fact-finding, pre-feasibility and feasibility studies, project designing, obtaining Cabinet approval and obtaining legal clearance from the Attorney General’s Department etc. Any citizen can make any complaint during this process as the government always looks for wider stakeholder consultation including the general public during the process,” the Government has said.The Government also noted that even after the commencement of the project, as per Sri Lanka’s legal system, the public is free to complain to the Development Partner, line Ministry or the Treasury, or even go to the Human Rights Commission or courts for any violation of human rights, involuntary resettlements or any other form of grievances. The Government says there have not been any human rights violation complaints related to infrastructure projects.In a response to a report submitted to the UN Human Rights Council ahead of the 40th Session of the Council which begins later this month, the Government said that there have not been any complaints for the past 10-12 years. The Government was responding to the report by the Independent Expert on the effects of foreign debt and other related international financial obligations of States on the full enjoyment of all human rights, particularly economic, social and cultural rights. In its response, the Government said that it mobilizes foreign financing for infrastructure projects mainly from multilateral and bilateral development partners under the legal system of Sri Lanka. Apart from that, Multilateral Development Partners have a well- established internal justice system to seek redress for citizen’s grievances. Any adversely affected person can directly write to multilateral funding agencies and make a complaint.The Government said that according to records, the External Resources Department (ERD) has not received any complaint on human rights relating to infrastructure project issues during the last 10-12 years due to the stakeholder consultation process in place for all infrastructure projects during project preparation and implementation.The Government says it has recognized the importance of streamlining and strengthening current practice in a well coordinated manner in order to ensure social inclusion and equity.

Friesen wins PPC shooting contest earns debate spot

Wildlife Federation disavows People’s Party shooting contest Conservation officers to get carbines beginning in April ‘Brass-knuckle campaign’ expected in lead-up to federal election: expert Mark Friesen will represent the People’s Party of Canada at a federal election debate in Saskatoon next week after defeating fellow candidate Guto Penteado in a shooting match.The contest was held at a private home — the party isn’t saying where — after the Saskatoon Wildlife Federation put the kibosh on plans to use its shooting range east of the city.Friesen’s five rounds, fired over a distance of about 60 yards, earned him 34 points while Penteado shot a total of 32 points, the latter’s campaign manager said in an email Tuesday night.SWF past president Robert Freberg told the Saskatoon StarPhoenix neither Friesen nor Penteado held memberships or asked permission to hold the event, which did not align with the federation’s mandate.Maxime Bernier’s new political party is one of four federal parties confirmed to participate in the Greater Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce’s “Name Your Warrior” debate set for Sept. 10.According to the business advocacy organization, the Conservative Party of Canada, the New Democratic Party and the Green Party of Canada have also pledged to send candidates to the event.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.As of Wednesday morning, the Liberal Party and the Bloc Québécois, which has never run a candidate outside Quebec, had yet to confirm their plans to attend the debate at the Broadway Theatre.The Conservatives currently hold 10 of the 14 federal electoral districts in Saskatchewan, only a few of which are expected to be in play when Canadians go to the polls late next month.One of those is in Saskatoon.

CLASS OF 2016 Alex Hobbs heading to law school

As a highly competitive student during his time at Brock University,it’s no surprise that alumnus Alex Hobbs (BA ’16) has been accepted to law school in Ottawa in September.His goal is to work with international relations and he has spent the last few years as President of Brock’s National Model United Nations, growing his network on campus and developing relationships with students from different faculties.“Admission to law school is highly competitive so I’m lucky,” said Hobbs.During his second year at Brock, Hobbs founded Brock’s first internationally competing model United Nations team and was in charge of educating students in the basics of international relations and United Nations procedure, resolution and policy formation.The team competed at the National Model United Nations conference in New York, the largest such event in the world, with 5,000 students from more than 35 countries attending.“Getting involved on campus complimented my academic studies and lead to incredible opportunities,” said HobbsHobbs encourages students to expand their networks early on during University with peers, and to stay connected after graduation.“You never know what they’ll be doing in the future and whether or not their business interests will be similar to yours,” he said.Hobbs will begin at the University of Ottawa’s Faculty of Law in September as well as the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs to complete a partnered Master of Arts in International Affairs and Juris Doctor Program combined four-year program. read more

Glenn McGrath Dale Steyn better bowlers than me – James Anderson

Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)RelatedOnce Anderson goes past me he will never be beaten – McGrathAugust 27, 2018In “latest news”‘Anderson knows the England dressing-room will never be the same’ – Michael VaughanSeptember 17, 2018In “latest news”Bumrah ‘the best bowler in the world at this stage’ – TendulkarMay 13, 2019In “latest news” Anderson went past McGrath with the final wicket of the series ESPNcricinfo LtdESPNcricinfo-James Anderson, who surpassed Glenn McGrath’s tally of 563 Test wickets at The Oval to become the most prolific seamer in Tests, has rated the Australian as a “much better bowler” than himself.“I’ll tell you something about Glenn McGrath – he was a much better bowler than me. This is not false modesty,” Anderson wrote in a column on Fox Sports.Anderson attributed McGrath’s superiority to various factors that he felt made the Australian a complete bowler.“I may have gone past his wicket tally but I honestly believe McGrath’s bounce, relentless accuracy, aggression and ability to move the ball made him superior. He had everything. And it is not a random, top-of-the-head assessment, either. I’ve been studying all of the great fast bowlers since I was about eight years old.”While the top two wicket-takers among seamers have tormented batsmen with different skill sets, Anderson drew similarities between his attitude and McGrath’s.“I also loved McGrath’s attitude,” Anderson said. “He had plenty of a snarl on the field – a bit like me, I suppose – and was super-competitive. He hated giving away runs or not taking wickets.”Describing McGrath as a “cracking fellow” with whom he had shared the occasional beer, Anderson said listening to the Australian talk about the way he prepared for games had helped him. One of McGrath’s training methods that Anderson incorporated into his own preparations was bowling with an old ball, in order to equip himself to be able to succeed in unfavourable conditions.“I heard him say once that he practised for when the ball didn’t swing,” Anderson said. “So if it did swing, it was a bonus. That philosophy has been a big part of my development. You so often see bowlers pick out a lovely new ball from the bag at nets and it looks great when it swings in the air and nips off the seam with batsmen playing and missing. What about when the ball is 60 overs old, the sun is blazing down, the pitch is flat and there’s not a hint of movement? So, at practice, I often take an old ball that looks like it’s been chewed by a dog and work on variations and aiming for the top of off stump. That’s the quickest way to improve your skills.”At 36, Anderson is still eager to learn from his contemporaries and among the modern seamers, he felt Dale Steyn was better than him as well.“I’ve spent most of my life watching fast bowlers – initially as a kid on TV and later in the flesh when I started playing top-level cricket. Even now, on a day off, I’ll sit at home with the cricket on TV analysing the quick boys and trying to learn. How are they gripping the ball? What are they thinking? Why did they bowl a bouncer or yorker or slower ball? I don’t think I’ll ever stop being fascinated.“Of the modern era, I’d happily tip my hat towards Dale Steyn. With his express pace, control and swing, he’s better than me, too.” read more

Over 21bn euros in new tax debts since 2013

first_imgOver 3.4 million taxpayers have either failed to fulfil their tax obligations or have avoided paying their dues to the state in the last couple of years. Since 2013 they have run up debts of 21.6 billion euros to the tax authorities, most of which concern arrears of below 3,000 euros each, which they can now repay in up to 100 instalments.According to data compiled by the General Secretariat for Public Revenues, new debts of 1.765 billion euros were created in the first couple of months of the year, in line with the debt creation rate of previous years. Unpaid taxes reached 840 million euros in January, rising to 925 million in February.As many as 231,712 taxpayers decided not to make their tax payments in the first two months of 2015 in anticipation of the new payment programs.Still, data also suggests that state debtors do not intend to take up the state’s offer of a payment scheme with favourable terms. Some 37,300 taxpayers have abandoned the existing 12-tranche payment plan, leaving about 322 million euros unpaid. Forced collection measures, such as repossessions and auctions, have been activated for 2,749 of those taxpayers.Finance Ministry officials are not expecting any significant revenues from the above categories of debtors through the express settlement measure which will remain in force up to the end of next week, as they have not yet amassed any notable penalties from the nonpayment of taxes in the last couple of years. The express repayment measure provides debtors with the opportunity to have all their penalties and fines written off if they pay their tax dues in a lump sum. If they pay 50 per cent of their dues they will have 50 per cent of their penalties written off, etc. This measure is aimed at those with older debts which have amassed higher penalties.It also appears that taxpayers who owe the state relatively small amounts would prefer to wait for the 100-instalment settlement scheme, which is seen providing for just 20 euros as a minimum instalment amount. This measure is expected to clear parliament today and be implemented after Easter (mid-April), once the ministerial decisions determining the terms and conditions for inclusion in the plan are issued. Debtors will have until May 26 to apply, but the minister will be able to extend the deadline by one month.An amendment tabled in parliament further provides for the inclusion in the 100-instalment program of debts to local authorities. The latter concern non-payment of council taxes, municipal water company bills and other charges such as those for the use of footpaths by catering enterprises.

Bibles and bull riding at Clark County Rodeo Bible Camp with video

first_imgThe sun hasn’t crested the horizon yet, but boots are already kicking up dust around the horse stalls.Clark County Rodeo Bible Camp participants hoist hay-filled wheelbarrows and haul hoses to replenish water before most folks have even hit the alarm clock snooze button.“We get up, we feed them twice a day, in the morning and at night. We have to clean their stalls, we put them out to pasture,” camper Hana Wyles, 14, of Battle Ground says of horse duty. “It’s definitely a big part of your life and … that’s just the way you live.”However, not all the campers are early risers. Camp founder Larry Cutler, bullhorn in hand, knows just how to wake them up. Cutler steps to an opening in the large canvas tent and pops a couple of short siren bursts.“OK, get up! You got about three minutes to get up or the food’s going away,” he says.The threat of missing breakfast is enough to get the teens to their feet.The camp, which was started four years ago by retired rodeo veteran Cutler of Scio, Ore., and his friend Joe Thompson of Camas, has grown from about 10 teens to 103. It’s basically a Bible camp; rodeo is the draw, Cutler says.“If we get 100 kids here, I found that maybe, just maybe, one or two will go on to become professional cowboys. But I guarantee you all 100 of them will meet God someday.”last_img read more

Gazipur engulfed in gloom after polls postponed

first_imgGazipur City CorporationIt looks like the city has just survived a storm. The candidates who were to contest in the Gazipur city corporation polls are left pondering the losses incurred in their poll preparations, while their supporters silently sip tea in the roadside tea stalls. They all have one question, ‘Why?’ A pall of gloom has engulfed the city after the court stayed the elections.Just a day ago, scores of people thronged around BNP candidate Hasan Uddin Sarkar, but today there are none. A few who were there in his office not only expressed their frustration but also their apprehension of being framed in cases.”The government could sense that they would lose, hence they went court. We can say nothing against the court order, but we feel broken. All the candidates have suffered. But we have organised ourselves and gone to court. We hope the court will consider our appeal,” said Hasan Uddin Sarkar.These correspondents spoke to a number of people, including Haji Abdur Rashid, 70, Mohammad Iman Ali, 49, Md Siraj, 50, and Md Kabir Hossain, 28, on Monday. They all voiced the same frustration. “The election commission declared the schedule and we prepared to vote amid so much festivity. There was no violence in Gazipur, nor were the candidates at loggerheads,” one of them said.”Why postpone the polls despite a congenial environment? Nobody has the chance to say anything about the court decision. But why the court did not take any action before? What is our fault? We want to vote. The court should let us vote,” said another.Awami League candidate Jahangir Alam’s house has also become very quiet. He went to attend a programme marking the death anniversary of former MP Ahsan Ullah Master and then he went to Dhaka. The correspondents could not speak to him.However, during the programme to mark the death anniversary of the former Awami League MP, leaders and workers of the party discussed the aftermath of the election postponement.However, supporters of city Awami League president Azmat Ullah Khan, who also wanted to run for the post of the mayor, were happy. Despite the rivalry, Azmat Ullah was the main election agent of the Awami League mayor candidate.”The people were quite hopeful about the election. But the court order has to be respected. Now we want a fair election by resolving the legal complications,” he said.The local election commission staff were sitting quietly. One of them seeking anonymity said, “We were running 100 miles per hour and now things have come to a standstill. Everyone is tired now.”Returning officer Rakib Uddin Mondal, a joint secretary, told Prothom Alo, “The Election Commission has asked us to suspend the election activities as per the order of the court and we complied. Now we are waiting for the next order.”In the 57 wards, 254 councillors, 84 female councillors and 7 mayoral candidates were to contest the Gazipur city corporation elections. They have all been affected due to the court order.Former panel mayor Abdul Karim, who is a councillor candidate this time, said he was affected, both physically and mentally.City Awami League women’s affairs secretary Hosne Ara Siddiqui, another former panel mayor and councillor candidate in a reserved seat, said, “If there was any complications, why publish the schedule? It could have been stopped much earlier. Millions have been spent and why now stop it at the last moment?”last_img read more

Play games Online With Hotties

first_imgces has never been as dense with booth babes as a show like, say, E3, but they’ve certainly been around for as long as I’ve been attending. In some cases, their presence just seems superfluous, having little or nothing to do with the actual product. And then there’s PlayWithMe.In fact of point, it would probably be ridiculous for PlayWithMe to not have booth babes. After all, the company’s tagline is “Play games With Hotties.” Yep. It’s an online service that lets you play games online against attractive women.One of said booth babes tried really hard to get me to play a game against one of the “hotties” (the line between the two is most likely fairly thin), but I told her that I had to go to, you know, do me job. She sent me away with a free play card inside, so I could “play in privacy.”Gross.last_img read more

The new claims allowed in United States Patent No. 7,465,568 add to SenoRx’s current intellectual property relating to asymmetrically irradiating a patient’s breast with the Contura MLB after breast biopsy or lumpectomy procedures.SenoRx received FDA 510(k) clearance for Contura MLB in May 2007 for delivering radiation to the tissue surrounding the lumpectomy cavity following surgery for breast cancer. For appropriate patients, Contura MLB is one of a new class of devices, which may reduce treatment time to five days from six to eight weeks. SenoRx believes that the Contura MLB may play an important role in the shift from traditional whole breast radiation therapy to localized partial breast radiation therapy. Contura MLB’s multi-lumen design aims to deliver improved dosimetric coverage of the targeted tissue while minimizing the radiation dose to healthy tissue. Some patients who are presently candidates for balloon therapy are currently excluded because of the location of the lesion and their breast size. Contura MLB’s advanced multi-lumen design may help address this issue for certain patients.
