Albertan who posed as US veteran on Nov 11 guilty of unlawful

Posted on by

first_imgRED DEER, Alta. – A man who posed as a U.S. Marine veteran during Remembrance Day ceremonies in central Alberta has pleaded guilty to unlawful use of military uniforms and medals.A third charge against Peter Toth, 59, was dropped.Toth was sentenced Wednesday in Red Deer to 18 months of probation and 200 hours of community service.Court heard that he has since destroyed the uniform and military decorations.His lawyer said Toth has struggled with depression, understands that what he did was wrong and feels remorse.Last November a group called Stolen Valour Canada began looking into a report of a man claiming to be a former U.S. Marine who attended ceremonies on Nov. 11 at schools in Red Deer.A picture taken at one event shows Toth dressed in a desert camouflage uniform festooned with military medals and ribbons.Stolen Valour officials said he was wearing rank badges in the wrong place, incorrect insignia and claimed to have been wounded in Afghanistan in 2005 despite saying he had retired from the military in 1985.Outside court, Gord Swaitkewich, a former soldier who is a spokesman for Stolen Valour Canada, said justice has been served.“It was a little bit of a process but any win is a win,” Swaitkewich said.Swaitkewich said his next order of business is to get the veterans license plate from Toth’s vehicle removed.“He is not a veteran, he has no legal right to have that plate.”Robert Dale, a retired sergeant, said he was also gratified with how the case turned out.“We’re not going to stand by for somebody stealing valour from our fallen,” Dale said.“He claimed he was in Afghanistan? We lost 185 people in Afghanistan and for him to do what he did is like him desecrating their graves and we’re not going to stand for it.”Dale said they hope the publicity of Toth’s case will send a message to the public that soldiers deserve respect.

Sharon Osbourne Asks Croatia To Prevent Chinchilla Torture On Fur Farms

Posted on by

first_imgThis week, X Factor judge and animal advocate Sharon Osbourne wrote to Croatia’s minister of agriculture, Davor Romić, asking him to preserve a complete ban on fur farming – which is scheduled to take effect on 1 January 2017 but is currently threatened because of a proposed exception for fur taken from chinchillas.After banning fur from her own closet, Osbourne teamed up with PETA US to narrate a video revealing how chinchillas suffer and die on fur farms and urging everyone to refuse to wear fur coats or trim.“I applaud Croatia’s decision to ban fur farming, as many other European countries have done, but I was shocked and disappointed to learn of a proposed exception to the ban that would allow the breeding and slaughter of chinchillas for their fur,” she wrote. “On behalf of kind people everywhere, I urge you to consider the following information and then make the decision to preserve a complete ban on fur farming.

“I used to wear fur but had a change of heart after learning about how terribly animals suffer in the fur industry. As you can see in this exposé that I recently narrated for PETA, chinchillas are often confined to tiny, filthy cages before workers snap their necks or electrocute them. “Toe-to-ear” electrocution immobilises chinchillas but leaves them conscious as they experience all the pain and agony of a full-blown heart attack. As on most fur farms, the animals seen in this exposé were denied veterinary care, and the owner of the farm even splinted broken bones and amputated limbs without anaesthetics.“There is so much suffering inherent in the fur industry – and all just for a silly fashion statement. Fur farmers have had 10 years to make the transition out of this cruel trade, and 1 January 2017 is a date to look forward to. Please take a stand against horrific cruelty to animals and use your influence to spread a message of compassion. You’d gain the respect of many animal lovers all over the world, like my family and me.”last_img read more

US land managers shift position on Chaco protection bill

Posted on by

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — U.S. land managers are open to legislation that would limit federal leases for oil and natural gas development near a national park in New Mexico held sacred by Native Americans.Bureau of Land Management Deputy Director of Operations Michael Nedd told members of a congressional subcommittee Wednesday that the agency had no objection to the bill.The agency shifted its stance following a recent visit by Interior Secretary David Bernhardt to Chaco Culture National Historical Park.Bernhardt said the agency will defer leases within 10 miles (16 kilometres) of the park over the next year while regulators prepare a new management plan for the region’s resources.Agency officials reiterated Wednesday the plan will include alternatives that reflect provisions of the legislation as well as the views of tribal leaders who are pushing for permanent protections.Susan Montoya Bryan, The Associated Press read more

Bank of Canada Deputy governor John Murray to retire in April

Posted on by

OTTAWA — The Bank of Canada announced Monday that deputy governor John Murray will retire next year, the second pending departure from the central bank’s upper ranks.Murray will step down on April 30, 2014, a day before senior deputy governor Tiff Macklem is scheduled to leave.Murray, who has been a deputy governor since in January 2008, has overseen the central bank’s analysis of domestic and international economic developments.“John has provided unwavering, top-notch intellectual leadership to the bank and its staff — myself included — for more than 30 years,” governor Stephen Poloz said.“His work has had a significant impact on central banking, not only in Canada but at the global level, as his colleagues around the world will readily attest.”The central bank said Murray played a significant role in establishing the theoretical foundations of inflation targeting and helping to refine the way in which it is implemented.The Bank of Canada adjusts its policy interest rate with an aim to keep inflation at the 2% midpoint of a target range of one to three per cent over the medium term.Macklem announced earlier this month that he will leave the bank on May 1, 2014, to become dean at the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto.Macklem had been widely considered the leading candidate to succeed Mark Carney as governor but the job went to Poloz, who has was been governor since June. read more

Dutch Government helps Sri Lanka fight chronic kidney disease

Posted on by

The Dutch Government has come forward to help Sri Lanka fight Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Sri Lanka said today.The Embassy said that following a request made by President Maithripala Sirisena in July 2015 for assistance from the diplomatic community on the CKD issue in Sri Lanka, the Dutch Government responded positively by offering the services of the Dutch Risk Reduction (DRR) Team. “As a country renowned for its expertise on water and delta management, the Netherlands feels a responsibility to share its knowledge worldwide. That is why the Dutch government has initiated the Dutch Risk Reduction Team (DRR). This team of experts advises Governments on how to resolve urgent water issues related to flood risks, water pollution and water supply, to prevent disasters or to rebuild after water related disasters,” the Embassy added. The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands has been working for the last few weeks with the Presidential task force on kidney disease prevention and other relevant Government of Sri Lanka entities to prepare and execute the DRR mission in Sri Lanka. The DRR mission consisted of four water experts (3 from the Netherlands and 1 from Sri Lanka). During the mission, the team participated in a stakeholder meeting at the Presidential Secretariat, collected water samples during their field visits to the Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa districts and conducted a debriefing meeting for the stakeholders at the Ministry of City Planning and Water Supply.The DRR mission’s report with their findings and conclusions is expected to be published next month.  (Colombo Gazette) read more

New online program helps smokers get fit and chill out

Posted on by

Attending the Quit Run Chill launch were, from left, Brock President Jack Lightstone, researcher Kelli-an Lawrance, Jean-Marc Lalonde (Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Health Promotion and Sport) and Charlene Bryant, Brock’s Leave the Pack Behind team leader.The provincial government and Brock researchers have launched a new online program to help young smokers avoid smoking, be physically active and cope with stress.The “Quit Run Chill” program was developed with $26,000 from the Ministry of Health Promotion and Sport’s Healthy Communities Fund. It is now being promoted on virtually all post-secondary campuses in Ontario and in many communities.“This initiative will help older youth and young adults establish and sustain a pattern of physical activity that will facilitate smoking cessation and reduce stress,” said Kelli-an Lawrance, associate professor, Community Health Sciences. “Following the program on its own, or in combination with quitting, will ultimately reduce an individual’s risk of hypertension, Type 2 diabetes and other cardiovascular diseases and contribute to positive mental health.”Leave The Pack Behind (LTPB), a province-wide peer-to-peer smoking cessation initiative housed at Brock and funded through the Government of Ontario’s Smoke-Free Ontario Strategy, maintains the program.LTPB operates at all universities and almost all public colleges in Ontario and reaches more than 500,000 students, which accounts for 50 per cent of older youth/young adults in the province.The launch of Quit Run Chill at the Plaza Building was attended by Jean-Marc Lalonde, Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Health Promotion and Sport. The program, Lalonde said, “was created by students for students.”“This reaches thousands of students across the province with a healthy message: if you smoke, quit. If you’re not active, exercise. If you stress, relax,” he said.Post-secondary students, supported by Brock researchers and other expert consultants designed “Quit Run Chill.” The program is self-directed and includes eight weeks of fresh information, ideas and inspirations about quitting smoking, being active and reducing stress.Quit: a proven self-help smoking cessation program, information about quitting options, and strategies for managing nicotine withdrawalRun: an eight-week progressive running program for new runners and a downloadable instruction manualChill: tips for immediate and long-term relief of stress and weekly stress management ideas and inspirations“Quit Run Chill” is interactive; facts, tips and inspirations are updated weekly. It is also highly personalized; registrants receive tailored weekly emails and can record, track and review their running (and quitting) progress online. read more

Ohio State lands commitment from fourstar defensive end Tyreke Smith

Posted on by

Ohio State received a reinforcement to its depleted defensive end depth in the form of four-star defensive end Tyreke Smith, who committed to the Buckeyes prior to the kickoff of the Under Armour All-American game Thursday evening.Smith is the 60th-best prospect in the country and the No. 4 weakside defensive end, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. The Cleveland Heights, Ohio, native is the third-ranked Ohioan.

Sophomore Nick Bosa, redshirt freshman Jonathon Cooper, freshman Chase Young and incoming freshman Alex Williams are the only other defensive ends on the roster.The Buckeyes signed 21 prospects during Early Signing Day.

Watch a Team Fortress 2 level running in a web browser

Posted on by

first_imgThis week I have already been impressed by Epic Games managing to get its Unreal Engine not only running in Flash 11, but managing to make Unreal Tournament 3 look better than the PS3 and Xbox versions while doing so.Now I have another game running in a web browser to be impressed by: a level from Team Fortress 2 has been ported to WebGL and runs without plug-ins in a browser.The port of the level has been carried out by Motorola Mobility software developer Brandon Jones. The level in question is 2Fort, and although it’s not perfect yet, the important thing is he has the Source Engine level running at a smooth 60fps. In some cases it’s up over 100fps, which means additional effects and detail aren’t going to impact the speed to the point where it becomes sluggish or unplayable.Key features that are missing include normal mapping on brush surfaces, water, accurate lighting, surface displacement, and a 3D skybox. But seeing as he’s just experimenting and playing with other people’s code, you can’t help but be impressed with the results so far.Jones has already shared the code for anyone interested in viewing it via GitHub, but he can’t share the assets as they belong to Valve. He also has no intention of hosting the level live for anyone to play. The main reason being it requires 200MB of assets and no one is going to pay, or even offer the bandwidth to serve that up thousands of times a day to interested gamers without some money changes hands.It’s a safe bet Valve has already seen this, and it may have given them some ideas. After all, doesn’t Steam have a web browser built directly into it? Maybe one day we’ll be playing Steam games directly in Steam with a little help from WebGL, or maybe even Flash 11 if it’s an Unreal Engine title.Team Fortress 2 isn’t the only game Jones has experimented with. He also managed to get Quake III running in WebGL, and there is a live demo of that you can run around in.Read more at TojiCodelast_img read more

Silversea bodes luxurious educational expeditions

Posted on by

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: N.J Expedition cruising is more than just a water-excursion, Silversea Expeditions director Conrad Combrink told e-Travel Blackboard, describing the growing fad as a way of making “people’s dreams come true”.The new educational and adventurous travel has attracted up to 80 percent new business for the luxury cruising group and according to the company’s expedition cruises director, some clientele are willing to save for years to embark on the exotic experience.“The expedition side of the company has been growing consistently since the beginning,” Mr Combrink told e-Travel Blackboard.Australia is the company’s second largest market in the Asia Pacific and according to the director, the company has successfully filled every single birth to the Antarctica as well as its recently launched exhibition in West Africa. “It is not necessarily just Antarctica and the Arctic that is growing because the fact is we only operate in Antarctica in November to February,” he said.“People are becoming more aware that expedition cruising offers unique destinations all over the world.The key feature attracting customers to the Silversea exhibition experience, according to Mr Combrink is the educational aspect of an expedition cruise, with the promise of Silversea luxury.“It’s a different approach and it’s a very satisfying and rewarding experience to be on an expedition cruise,” he explained.“Expedition destinations are not necessarily new to cruising, most of the places that we go to have been cruised before but it’s how we deliver these destinations that sets Silversea apart from others.”The cruise company has handpicked destination specialists to work with the company, transforming the experience from entertaining to educational, hired 121 crew to cater to 130 guests, included a butler service, wine service, hotel staff and complimentary shore excursions.Mr Combrink added that the company has also added a free-style sailing approach which is also working to divert customers to the travel group.No two embarkations are identical with Silversea organising flexible itineraries allowing the on board vibe to drive the direction of the trip.“The itineraries are unstructured, we know where we are going to be on embarkation and we are 99 percent sure where it is going to end,” Mr Combrink laughed.Despite increasing success, the company’s expedition director said there are no current plans to expand the company’s fleet and remained tight lipped on new destinations expected to be unveiled in September this year.“We are not going to release any specifics until we do the release in September… the one thing I can say is that our itineraries will always be fresh, the core product will stay, it will always be new and exciting,” he said.  However, to learn more on Silversea’s expeditions, destinations and on board hotel service travellers can follow ships on the company’s online daily Voyage Journals.“The reports section is where people can follow the expeditions and get a feel of what we’ve done,” Mr Combrink added.“People ask what trips are going to be like and it is very difficult to describe and so the journals are there to give people an idea.”last_img read more

first_imgA bill tabled in 2012 seeking to regulate the profession of photography was unearthed and discussed on Tuesday at the House labour committee prompted by the case of the 35-year-old self-confessed serial killer, an army officer  who worked as a successful professional photographer on the side.Greens leader Giorgos Perdikis, who tabled the bill seven years ago, said after the meeting that “the Cyprus Photographers’ Association has rightly requested that the bill, which basically blocks the uncontrolled exercise of the profession, is put to a vote.”If the bill is passed, the photographic profession will be regulated through specific criteria and qualification requirements, while a license will also need to be obtained.According to Perdikis, the bill foresees the creation of a photographers’ council which will certify professional photographers through evaluating the training and profile “of those persons who enter our homes, our events, and exploit this photographic material online.”Following the development of the case of the serial killings of five women and two girls, the education ministry had drafted a circular which has yet to be distributed to schools, and which lays down some terms which school heads and parents associations should abide by when choosing a photographer to cover school events, the committee heard.Metaxas had served as a photographer for multiple events, including events of political parties.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoSmart Tips DailySeniors With No Life Insurance May Get A $250,000 Policy If They Do ThisSmart Tips DailyUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
