first_img “It is a great privilege for our medical and aviation teams to serve Nova Scotians,” said Steve Crocker, critical care paramedic, LifeFlight. “The new upgrades will better support everyone on the aircraft to provide the high-quality critical care people have come to expect from LifeFlight.” Earlier this year, government announced it had reached an agreement with Canadian Helicopters Limited to outfit and operate two new air ambulance helicopters. The 15-year contract is valued at $105 million. Nova Scotia is a Canadian leader in emergency health services, and has been recognized by Sikorsky for 20 years and 17,000 hours of accident-free medical services with EHS LifeFlight. The new helicopters began service on Dec. 15. Two new medical helicopters are now in service and able to land on hospital helipads. “EHS LifeFlight is a vital part of Nova Scotia’s emergency medical services and provides critical care to people all over the Maritimes,” said Health and Wellness Minister Randy Delorey. “For EHS LifeFlight, time matters. These new helicopters can get patients to hospital faster and they have important equipment available to critical care teams when they need it most.” LifeFlight Tango and LifeFlight November are Sikorsky S-76 C+ aircraft with innovative technology that exceeds any emergency medical aircraft in use in Canada today. They have been specifically designed, inside and out, for use by Nova Scotia’s critical care teams. EHS LifeFlight responds to between 700 and 800 calls a year. With two helicopters, LifeFlight will be able to respond more often because there will be minimal downtime for maintenance and scheduled repairs. The new helicopters feature: state-of-the-art navigation and communication systems that improve safety, including automatic voice alerts, surveillance, and real-time Environment Canada weather feed – the first of its kind in Canada back-up life-saving equipment, like oxygen outlets and regulators, and a back-up generator to fuel that equipment a night vision goggle-compatible cockpit climate control that provides a better environment for the patient and crew.last_img read more

Middleorder overhaul on cards could be end of road for Kedar Karthik

first_imgLondon: A complete revamp of the brittle Indian middle-order is expected with stop-gap solutions like Dinesh Karthik and Kedar Jadhav gone for good in the upcoming Indian squads as focus will firmly shift from ODIs to the shortest format, keeping next year’s World T20 in mind. The policy from the time when Mahendra Singh Dhoni took over as captain has been to prepare teams at least two years in advance for ODIs and may be around 18 months for T20s. Also Read – Dhoni, Paes spotted playing football togetherIndia’s next big limited-overs assignment will be the World T20 in Australia next year and it will be happening after a gap of four years. The selection committee, led by MSK Prasad, will be in charge till the BCCI elections are held but it is expected that it will handle the transition phase with focus for the next 14 months being more on the shortest format. A fragile middle-order with over-the-hill players like Jadhav and Karthik, completely ill-equipped to handle pressure situations outside the sub-continental conditions, has been the current team’s biggest weakness and the World Cup semi-final result was a disaster waiting to happen. It was only human that the troika of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul would have an off day in unison and too bad, that it happened on a knock-out day. The Indian ODI team’s nucleus was formed just after their defeat in the 2017 Champions Trophy final to Pakistan with two wrist spinners being match winners as the core philosophy of coach Ravi Shastri and Kohli. Also Read – Andy Murray to make Grand Slam return at Australian OpenIt gave India tremendous success in bilaterals even though Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal didn’t exactly set the World Cup on fire with their performances. It was not that World Cup was the only event whene India didn’t have a Plan B. They have not had a Plan B in place for two years. It didn’t matter till Kohli and Rohit would notch up one hundred after other. Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s waning abilities at the death could be papered over despite the absence of a solid middle-order due to Hardik Pandya’s consistent at No.7 final assaults. Players like Manish Pandey and Shreyas Iyer were dumped from the World Cup scheme of things without being given a proper run which could have boosted their confidence. Young Shubman Gill, touted as one of the biggest batting hopes of the next decade and half, was given a game in New Zealand and set aside. However, the World Cup has been a lesson that players like Karthik or Jadhav may have an odd Nidahas night or a rampaging evening in Pune but that would be more of an exception than the rule. Karthik of 2019 didn’t have the game for English conditions and was persisted with on the basis of his wicket-keeping skills while Jadhav, despite lack of explosive power-hitting abilities at the death, was heavily invested upon even after factoring in his dodgy hamstrings. For Dhoni’s game to succeed, one needs players like Jadeja and Pandya at the other end, who are much more than “bits and pieces”.last_img read more

Fate of Patrick Browns bid for Tory leadership to be determined Wednesday

first_imgTORONTO – Patrick Brown is expected to find out Wednesday whether he will be able to continue his bid to lead Ontario’s Progressive Conservatives through the spring election.The former Opposition leader, who was forced to resign last month amid sexual misconduct allegations, is fighting an uphill battle to reclaim his job, which has pitted him against the party brass.A party nomination committee met with Brown late Tuesday and will decide if the 39-year-old politician should be allowed to run as a Tory candidate in the June election. A decision against him would derail his efforts to reclaim the Tory leadership.But despite the obstacles, Brown remained defiant Tuesday, promising to continue his fight.“We have an obligation to the people of Ontario to get our province back on course,” he wrote in a message posted on Facebook — his preferred method of communication since stepping down. “I want to finish the job that we started.”Other candidates vying for Brown’s former job — Christine Elliott, Doug Ford and Tanya Granic Allen — were also expected be interviewed by the committee Tuesday as part of a vetting process that will look at their social media posts, previous jobs and criminal history. Caroline Mulroney, who is running in the York-Simcoe riding, is the only vetted candidate seeking the party’s top post.Interim Tory leader Vic Fedeli, who has vowed to clean up the party and “root out the rot,” refrained Tuesday from commenting on whether Brown should be pushed out of the leadership race.“I trust the process,” he said. “Patrick, like every candidate, will have to go through the provincial nominating committee.”Sources say the leadership process involves filing the appropriate paperwork to register, paying $125,000 in different fees, and then going through the vetting process. Sitting legislators are not subject to the vetting process, but that rule does not apply to Brown, who was removed from the Tory caucus on Friday.Some Tory officials acknowledged the complicated vetting process has caused some confusion inside and outside the party.“We are navigating difficult waters,” one official said. “It might be foreign to outsiders but we’ll come out of this with a new leader and an energized party.”Tory members will vote online for a new leader on March 2 and March 8, with the winner to be announced on March 10.Brown’s abrupt resignation plunged the Progressive Conservatives, who had been leading in the polls, into turmoil, triggering the kind of infighting rarely seen in Ontario politics.On Tuesday, Brown warned his supporters to brace for more attacks, saying a small group of party “insiders” were trying to derail his leadership bid.“Over the next weeks you may hear or see stories questioning my integrity, character and my leadership of our party,” Brown wrote. “This small group of insiders will stop at nothing in their attempts to derail us.”Brown denied a Globe and Mail report that said he had discussed a $375,000 business deal with a man who would later become a Tory candidate in Brampton, Ont. The Canadian Press has not independently verified the allegations.Brown said the deal never happened and accused a former senior staffer of leaking personal and financial information to the media.“This includes bank statements, mortgage information, legal documents, all of which is legally protected and personal information,” he said.Brown also pushed back against accusations that he inflated party membership numbers. Brown often took credit for growing the party from about 12,000 members after the Tory defeat in the 2014 election to 200,000 in late November. An internal audit ordered by Fedeli following Brown’s resignation found 133,000 members.The membership numbers were accurate at the time he made the statement to the media, Brown said Tuesday.“There is one person at party headquarters who looks after every single membership form and verifies the payment,” he said on Facebook. “He should be allowed to speak but won’t be allowed to because he will speak the truth.”In the coming days, Brown will also have to deal with a complaint filed with Ontario’s Integrity Commissioner alleging he is not fit to be a legislator, much less party leader or the premier of the province.Tory legislator Randy Hillier, who filed the complaint, alleged Brown had violated the Members Integrity Act, which governs the conduct of members of the legislature, and asked the commissioner to investigate Brown’s financial declarations, his travels to India and what he called “unreported income allegedly related to nomination acclamations.”As the Tory drama has unfolded over the last few weeks, the governing Liberals have been reluctant to publicly weigh in, while the New Democrats said it’s hard to predict what will come out of it.“I don’t know what the end result will be in terms of all of this mess but it’s certainly garnering a lot of attention,” said NDP Leader Andrea Horwath. “But I have to say, just because people are paying attention to the Conservatives during this messy process doesn’t mean they like what they see.”— with files from Paola Loriggio and Nicole Thompson.Note to readers: CORRECTS Randy Hillier’s first name in the third para from the bottomlast_img read more

UN has narrow window of opportunity to turn the tide on raft

. “Now is the time to act, and although only a narrow window of opportunity exists, the United Nations should be at the forefront of that process,” Petro Prorshenko told delegates in New York for the Assembly’s 72nd annual general debate. He said Ukraine could not have agreed more with the call for the universal respect of sovereignty, as expressed in the General Assembly Hall yesterday. And while the UN was founded on the principles of peace and security, based on sovereignty and respect for borders, those principles had been flagrantly violated by a permanent Security Council member against his country. “Ukraine has suffered from conflict for the last three years, resulting in the deaths of 10,000 people and the occupation of seven per cent of its territory, while 20 per cent of the economy has been seized, destroyed or simply stolen,” Mr. Porshenko explained, adding that the “most horrific [action] was the Kremlin’s tactic to increase human suffering.” He said Russia has violated Security Council resolutions and ignored requests from the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) for full access to the occupied parts of Crimea. “The situation requires a proper response from the international community,” he said, noting that Russia is not contributing to international security, but is rather its biggest threat, “as it is in conflict with almost all its neighbours and has undermined every effort to restore Ukraine’s sovereignty.” For decades, Ukraine had been a resolute contributor to global peace and security, he said, notably by giving up its nuclear arsenal. An advocate for non proliferation, Ukraine resolutely condemned the recent actions by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, he said, also expressing deep concern over the conflict in Syria. Concerned by the numerous, unresolved conflicts in Africa, he expressed Ukraine’s commitment to the 2030 Agenda and implementation of the Paris Agreement. read more

Ohio State on track heading into Jesse Owens Track Classic

Distance runners, freshman Dominik Seitzer (left) and redshirt-sophomore Josh Sabo, pace the field during the Buckeye Tune-Up Feb. 21 at French Field House.Credit: Brandon Claflin / For The LanternThe Ohio State men’s and women’s track and field teams are set to pay tribute to legendary runner Jesse Owens as the team debuts at its only home outdoor meet of the season.This weekend, the Buckeyes are slated to host more than 24 collegiate teams along with several unattached runners Friday and Saturday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium for the 29th annual Jesse Owens Track Classic.Owens, known as the Buckeye Bullet during his time at OSU, is most recognized for his ability in the sprints and long jumping events. He set three world records at the 1935 Big Ten track meet and holds four gold Olympic medals: one each in the 100 meter dash, 200 meter dash, long jump, and 4×100 meter relay.In the past, Olympians such as John Drummond, Allen Johnson, Edwin Moses and Buckeye Olympians Diane Dixon and Joe Greene all competed in the Jesse Owens Track Classic according to an OSU press release.The Buckeyes are excited to return home after five weeks on the road, men’s coach Ed Beathea said. He said he believes the Buckeyes have gotten off to a steady start into the outdoor season, but are looking forward to competing hard this weekend as they transition into the next phase of the season.“I think that we are on track for where we would like to end the season,” Beathea said.Beathea is confident the team is on pace to face high competition.“Performances have been a bit of a mixed bag,” Beathea said. “Some guys have thrived and done well and some guys have done relatively average. But when I look at our results from last year, we are where we should be on how we train.”Senior sprinter and hurdler Justin Hines agreed with Beathea, saying the pace the Buckeyes have taken in their training during the outdoor season.“We usually start off a little slower, then pick it up a little,” Hines said. “Coach usually peaks us right before conference. We are at a good spot based on the marks we have right now and I think that if we keep moving forward, we will be very competitive in the conference meet.”Moving forward is one thing Beathea hopes to see his team do this weekend.“We are taking each week for what it is, but we understand that for our training, we need to get our legs back and turn over a little bit faster,” Beathea said. “I would like to see them fight a little more and compete with a stronger sense of urgency.”He said many athletes are still adjusting from the indoor to outdoor season. But with a few meets under their belts in the outdoor season, he hopes they will be “more spirited.”One athlete who intends to improve and compete harder is senior sprinter and hurdler Demoye Bogle.Bogle said he has had a “rough” couple of meets to start the outdoor season, but is being patient with his training. He hopes this weekend at home will help him get his confidence back.“We want to do our best and show that we can’t be beat at our own track,” Bogle said.Bogle said he and his teammates are continuing to practice hard each day and keep healthy in order to be successful this weekend.The home track advantage comes with bittersweet returns for Hines because this is his last race at home as a Buckeye. He said he is excited, however, to have his family and friends make it down to the meet.“The guys tend to enjoy being at home because they get more support,” Beathea said. “Mechanically (they) look the same, but there is a feeling of comfort of being at home.”The meet starts Friday at 4 p.m. and Saturday at 10 a.m. at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.Correction April 17: An earlier version of this story noted the athlete in the photo on the left to be Jackson Neff. In fact, it is Dominik Seitzer. The caption now reflects the correct individuals in the photo. read more

Les premiers smartphones Nokia sous Windows Phone en fin dannée

first_imgLes premiers smartphones Nokia sous Windows Phone en fin d’année ? Nokia souhaite accélérer le lancement de ses premiers modèles équipés du système d’exploitation de Microsoft à la fin de l’année.Numéro un mondial de la vente de téléphones mobiles, Nokia est en revanche dépassé par Apple au niveau du revenu généré par ces ventes. Afin de mettre fin à cette situation, le groupe finlandais a récemment signé un partenariat avec Microsoft pour utiliser le système d’exploitation Windows Phone 7 et tente désormais d’accélérer le lancement des premiers modèles issus de cette union. À lire aussiNomophobie : traitement, symptômes, qu’est-ce que c’est ?Alors que cela devait initialement prendre du temps, les premiers smartphones sous WP7 ne devant sortir qu’en 2012, Stephen Elop, le patron de Nokia évoque aujourd’hui un lancement plus rapide. “Désormais, nous allons annoncer les produits peu de temps avant leur disponibilité effective. Dans le passé, il y a eu trop de délais entre ces deux moments. Il ainsi possible que nos nouveaux smartphones soient lancés pendant le 4e trimestre de cette année”, a-t-il expliqué dans des propos repris par L’Expansion.Selon le blogueur russe Eldar Murtazin, bien connu pour ses scoops sur Nokia, les premiers modèles se nommeront W7 et W8. Le W7 sera construit sur une base de X7 et doté d’un appareil photo 8 mégapixels tandis que le W8 sera une adaptation du N8. De plus, les modèles haut de gamme ne seront pas les seuls à être concernés par l’union Nokia-Microsoft. “Il a vocation à équiper toutes les gammes grâce à une baisse de prix et à l’assouplissement des spécifications minimums imposées par Microsoft. On va descendre beaucoup plus bas que ce qui existe aujourd’hui”, a expliqué Olivier Lagréou, chef de groupe Marketing Products chez le géant finlandais. Enfin, la version de Windows Phone exploitée par Nokia devrait être quelque peu différente de celle proposée aux autres constructeurs. Outre l’intégration d’OVI Maps, le système de géolocalisation de Nokia, dans l’OS mobile et son association avec des applications Microsoft, il s’agirait également d’y intégrer la boutique d’applications maison OVI Store. “Nokia aura la possibilité de modifier l’environnement Windows Phone selon ses besoins”, explique ainsi Kai Oistamo, vice-président du département Devices chez Nokia.Le 3 mai 2011 à 13:28 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Remote Town Gets Fiber Internet With a Little Help from a Drone

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Bringing blazing fast Internet access to residents of remote rural communities isn’t high on the priority list of most ISPs. That may change, now that drones can be used to speed deployment.Over in Wales, BT subsidiary Openreach just finished cabling up the small village of Pontfadog. Now each resident — in all 20 of its houses — can download to their heart’s content at blistering speeds as fast as 1Gbps… and they have a drone to thank for it.The small quadrotor played a key role in the installation. It didn’t have enough raw power to pull the heavy fiber optic cable, mind you. Instead, the drone stretched a 100-meter pull line from two high points in the neighboring forest.Once the line had been run, workers hooked the fiber on and carefully pulled it across the span. Today, bandwidth-related annoyances like buffering are a thing of the past. Videos streams no longer degrade into pixelated sludge in Pontfadog.Chris Devismes, a retired teacher, told the BBC that the the new service “has made a world of difference.” Understandable, given that he shares his home with two teenagers with an exuberance for digital activities like binging on Netflix and lengthy Skype sessions.Lawmakers in the U.K. are currently working on legislation that will guarantee high-speed Internet access to all residents by 2020. Openreach has already expressed its interest, but reportedly doesn’t want to commit to the government’s current terms.Parliament is expected to make a decision by the end of the year. Openreach may want to order a few pallets of drones just in case they’re required to drastically shorten the timetable for rolling out more high-bandwidth connections. There’s plenty more terrain like what they dealt with in Pontfadog standing between Brits and their fiber.last_img read more

US unveils proposed changes to tribal recognition rules

first_imgHARTFORD, Conn. — The U.S. Interior Department on Thursday announced proposed changes to the rules for granting federal recognition to American Indian tribes, revisions that could make it easier for some groups to achieve status that brings increased benefits as well as opportunities for commercial development. The Bureau of Indian Affairs says it overhauled the rules to make tribal acknowledgment more transparent and efficient. The changes include a new requirement that tribes demonstrate political authority since 1934, where they previously had to show continuity from “historical times.” That change was first proposed in a draft last June and stirred criticism that the standards for recognition were being watered down. Kevin Washburn, an assistant secretary with Indian Affairs, said the rules are no less rigorous. He said 1934 was chosen as a dividing line because that was the year Congress accepted the existence of tribes as political entities.Gerald Gray, chairman of Montana’s Little Shell Tribe of Chippewa Indians, said the changes offer the path to recognition that his people have sought for decades. The landless tribe of about 4,500 members has been recognized by the state of Montana since 2000, but its bid for federal recognition was rejected in 2009 partly because the tribe could not document continuity through the early part of the 20th century. Gray said that denial illustrated how the process is broken.last_img read more

Gov Walker considers Fairbanks 4 pardon

first_imgAlaska’s governor is considering granting pardons to four men accused in the 1997 death of a teenager, the first time a pardon would be issued in nearly a decade.Alaska’s executive clemency process has not been used since the law was changed eight years ago in response to a controversial pardon by then-Gov. Frank Murkowski.Under state law, Alaska governors are authorized to grant pardons, reprieves and commutations of sentences.The law that was signed by Murkowski’s predecessor, Sarah Palin, requires the governor to first notify the state parole board for investigation.The board must then notify various entities, including victims of certain crimes, such as domestic violence and first-degree arson. It also requires that the process last at least 120 days.last_img read more

Saudi king replaces top military commanders

first_imgSaudi Arabia`s King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud gestures as he attends Janadriyah Festival on the northern outskirts of Riyadh on & February. Photo: ReutersSaudi King Salman on Monday replaced top military commanders including the chief of staff, state media said, in a major shake-up of the kingdom’s defence establishment.The monarch replaced the heads of the ground forces and air defences, as well as civilian officials including several deputy ministers, in a series of late-night royal decrees.No official reason was given for the sweeping overhaul, but it comes as Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman pursues military reform and a bloody campaign against Yemen’s Iran-aligned Huthi rebels nears the end of its third year.”Termination of the services of General Abdul Rahman bin Saleh al-Bunyan, Chief of Staff,” the official Saudi Press Agency (SPA) announced, adding that Fayyad al-Ruwaili had been appointed as his replacement.Al-Bunyan was retired after he inaugurated an arms exhibition this week in Riyadh by the Saudi Arabian Military Industries (SAMI), the state-owned defence company, which has drawn several global defence firms.”A military transformation is underway in Saudi Arabia,” Theodore Karasik, a senior advisor at the consultancy Gulf States Analytics, told AFP.”The changes come on the heels of the SAMI exhibition, which is a critical part of the Prince Mohammed’s reform plan to create an indigenous defence program,” he added,Crown Prince Mohammed, the son of the monarch and heir to the throne, is the country’s defence minister and has been consolidating his grip on power in recent months while pushing major economic and social reforms.The young prince has pursued an assertive regional policy, including leading a military intervention in neighbouring Yemen since 2015 that is seen as a proxy war with arch-rival Iran.The Yemen conflict has led to what the UN describes as the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.More than 9,200 people have been killed in the conflict and another nearly 2,200 Yemenis have died of cholera, according to the World Health Organization.King Salman also decreed a series of civilian appointments that saw younger officials being elevated to key positions as deputy ministers, deputy provincial governors and royal court advisors.Tamadar bint Yousef al-Ramah was appointed the deputy minister of labour and social development, a rare senior government post for a woman in the conservative kingdom.Prince Turki bin Talal, the brother of billionaire Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, was appointed deputy governor of the southern Assir Province.Prince Al-Waleed, dubbed the Warren Buffett of Saudi Arabia, was among princes, ministers and tycoons detained in Riyadh’s luxury Ritz-Carlton hotel in an unprecedented crackdown on what the government calls elite corruption.The Ritz-Carlton reopened for business on February 11, more than three months after becoming a gilded prison for Saudi elites.last_img
