Residents of the Town of Pictou and Lyons Brook, Pictou Co., will soon have improved wastewater collection and treatment thanks to investments through the Canada-Nova Scotia Municipal Rural Infrastructure Fund. Improvements include the design and construction of a new wastewater treatment facility and collector sewer for the Town of Pictou. More than 1,600 households and 300 businesses on the municipal wastewater collection system will have their wastewater treated to a higher quality. About 130 households in Lyons Brook and surrounding area will also be converted from malfunctioning on-site sewage systems to a municipal collection and treatment system. Federal and provincial funding of $5,095,684 was announced today, Aug. 24. The Town of Pictou and the Municipality of the County of Pictou will fund the balance of the $9.64-million project upon formal acceptance of the agreement and environmental assessment approval. “Infrastructure is the foundation of our economic progress and a necessity for a high quality of life,” said Peter MacKay, Minister of Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency. “We know that by joining forces with provincial and municipal governments, we can find creative solutions to help communities build the infrastructure they need.” “Our government is committed to ensuring that health and safety issues are addressed in each and every community throughout Nova Scotia,” said Jamie Muir, Minister of Service Nova Scotia and Municipal Relations. “Investing in municipal infrastructure projects such as today’s wastewater improvements is an essential factor in building a better quality of life for Nova Scotians.” The infrastructure program supports community infrastructure improvements, such as water, wastewater, and solid waste management. “We are extremely pleased that our federal and provincial partners are investing in our new wastewater treatment facility,” said Joseph Hawes, mayor of the Town of Pictou. “There is no question that this project will contribute to a cleaner environment in our community.” “The federal and provincial funds will enable us to participate in this important wastewater project,” said Allister MacDonald, warden for the Municipality of the County of Pictou. “This project will have significant benefits for the health of our community and will make a real impact on the quality of life of our residents.” The $111-million, six-year, Canada-Nova Scotia Municipal Rural Infrastructure Fund is administered by the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency and Service Nova Scotia and Municipal Relations. Enterprise Cape Breton Corporation and the Union of Nova Scotia Municipalities are also members of the management committee.
The proposals, approved by the Assembly in a resolution this morning, include a restructuring of the Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO); the creation of a separate Department of Field Support (DFS), to be headed by an Under-Secretary-General; a major increase in working-level resources in both departments and in other parts of the UN Secretariat; and new capacities and integrated structures to match the growing complexity of mandated activities.Demand for UN peace operations is surging, with nearly 100,000 field personnel deployed across 18 DPKO-led missions and several other missions supported by the Department.In a statement released by his spokesperson, Mr. Ban said he was grateful the Assembly “was able to tackle the daunting task of approving such wide-ranging proposals in a short period of time,” adding that it demonstrated the commitment of UN Member States to the world body’s role in peacekeeping.“The Secretary-General is confident that the Secretariat can now move quickly to make appointments and implement the new arrangements,” the statement added.It noted that the reform package had been crafted to ensure that DPKO and DFS work in harmony so as to provide unity of command, coherence in policy and strategy and operational efficiency in peacekeeping missions.The approved package includes 287 new posts, down from Mr. Ban’s original proposal of 400 posts. The Under-Secretary-General for DFS post is funded for the next three years, with further funding subject to a review of the restructure after that time. The procurement operation is also staying in the Department of Management, rather than becoming part of the restructured peacekeeping operations. 29 June 2007Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today welcomed the General Assembly’s decision to approve the thrust of his proposals aimed at strengthening the capacity of the United Nations to mount and sustain peacekeeping operations in an era when the demand for blue helmets has reached at an all-time high.
“Special Olympics transforms communities from closed to open ones, from intolerant to accepting ones and by using sport to accomplish this, has come to represent the good, the power and the true spirit of sport,” Wilfried Lemke added during an event held on the sidelines of the XIII Special Olympics World Summer Games that opened yesterday in Athens, Greece.The Games are held every two years and bring together athletes with intellectual disabilities in what is one of the world’s largest sporting events. Mr. Lemke has been a strong advocate for a greater use of sport and physical activity as avenues for fostering the inclusion of persons with disabilities in communities and societies, and for empowering them. Yesterday he competed with Special Olympic athletes in a 1,000-metre cycling time trial aimed at raising funds for the Special Olympics movement, which was founded by the late Eunice Kennedy Shriver, a sister of former United States president John F. Kennedy.“The World Games are a powerful display of the potential of sport as a tool for advancing social goals and deeply impacting the lives of people in a positive way,” Mr. Lemke said after the race. “The Games offer the opportunity for the world to focus on the abilities of the athletes as opposed to the common perception that focuses on their disabilities.”As Special Adviser, a position he has held since 2008, Mr. Lemke is tasked with leading and coordinating the efforts of the UN system to promote understanding and support for sport as an instrument for development and peace.Also on the sidelines of the Games, Timothy Shriver, Ms. Shriver’s son, and Anthony Lake, the Executive Director of the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), today signed a memorandum of understanding to strengthen their joint commitment to uphold the rights, dignity and inclusion of children with disabilities. “Children with disabilities have the same hopes and dreams as all children, and the same right to make the most of their potential,” said Mr. Lake. “The denial of that right is a loss, not only for those children, but for our societies. And it is unconscionable.“By strengthening the partnership between Special Olympics and UNICEF, we will help to protect this right for more children with disabilities, and in so doing, enable them to contribute even more to their communities and countries,” he stated.Since 2007 UNICEF and Special Olympics have worked together to raise awareness of the abilities and rights of children with intellectual disabilities, change perceptions and challenge negative attitudes. In recent years, the two organizations have worked together to establish the first family support networks for children with intellectual disabilities in Cambodia; provide opportunities for children in Jamaica to participate in Young Athletes programmes; and provide health screenings, counselling on nutrition, and family health education in several locations in Kazakhstan. 27 June 2011The United Nations Special Adviser on Sport for Development and Peace today hailed the power of the Special Olympics to transform the public image of persons with intellectual disabilities.

Its forecast for the current quarter, which incorporates the critical holiday season, falls below Wall Street expectations.FedEx Corp. posted earnings of $438 million, or $1.39 per share, for the quarter that ending in November, compared with $497 million, or $1.57 per share, a year ago. That fell shy of the $1.41 per share that Wall Street was expecting, according to a poll of analysts by FactSet.Revenue rose to $11.1 billion from $10.6 billion previously as the company scaled back its operations to better match demand and some of its raised rates. Analysts forecast revenue of $10.84 billion.Growth in the company’s freight and ground operations boosted results, but FedEx reported “persistent weakness” in its core express network. Operating income in that segment fell 33 per cent. FedEx and its larger rival UPS Inc. have both seen consumers and businesses opt for slower shipping options to cut costs.FedEx said it expects earnings will be between $1.25 and $1.45 per share in the third quarter. Analysts that follow the company were predicting per-share earnings of $1.45.The company also said it expects to earn between $6.20 and $6.60 per share for the year ending in May, excluding any charges from the company’s buyout plan. Wall Street is looking for $6.34.Earlier this month, FedEx said it will offer some employees up to two years pay to leave, starting next year. The voluntary program is part of an effort to cut annual costs by $1.7 billion within three years.Shares of FedEx rose slightly before the opening bell.

Brock University is rolling out the welcome mat for this year’s St. Catharines Terry Fox Run.The annual fundraising run has been held in Port Dalhousie for nearly four decades, but this year’s high water levels along with construction projects at Lakeside Park meant a new home was needed for the Sept. 17 event.Brock’s partnership with the Terry Fox Run has been getting stronger over the past few years with more staff, faculty and students taking part than ever before.“Brock is proud to be the host site for the 2017 St. Catharines Terry Fox Run,” said University President Gervan Fearon Thursday after raising the Terry Fox flag in a ceremony at St. Catharines city hall. “In recent years, our students and staff have increasingly joined the community in supporting the event, and scientists at the University have received generous funding from the Terry Fox Foundation to do important cancer research at Brock.”The St. Catharines Terry Fox Run and a post-run party will be held on the Brock campus starting at 10 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 17, which is also the final day of the University’s Homecoming Weekend. The Fox event will also include remarks by Brock researchers, and tours of Brock labs where important cancer research is taking place.“It brings another dynamic to it,” said Doug Harvey from the St. Catharines Terry Fox Run committee. “It brings a larger audience and I think support from Brock students and the whole group up there is really going to be a benefit to the event.”The five-kilometre route can be walked, run or wheeled. Parking will be free for the event, and there’s no entrance fee and no fundraising minimum. However, Harvey said the goal this year is to raise more than the nearly $50,000 that was donated in 2016, when around 600 people took part.Registration is available on the Terry Fox Foundation website, where you can join as an individual or join the Brock University team.

PORTLAND — Port of Portland officials say a South Korean shipping company unhappy about the pace of work among longshore workers will continue serving the port’s container operation.The long-awaited word came Monday in a memo from Hanjin Shipping, which handles more than 75 percent of the container volume at the port’s Terminal 6, The Oregonian reported.Many Northwest businesses use the terminal to export or import goods. Their costs would rise and the port would suffer a blow if cargo had to be trucked to or from Puget Sound.The port granted $20-a-container subsidies in hopes they would keep Hanjin sending ships up the Columbia River to the port.Terminal 6 has been in turmoil since 2012, as members of the International Longshore & Warehouse Union clashed with the Philippines-based company known as ICTSI that operates it for the port“The Port of Portland’s productivity has still not shown any sign of improvement for the past months,” Hanjin’s memo said. “We are working closely with the terminal to solve the productivity issues in order to keep the service up and running.”

It is a common heart rhythm disorder (arrhythmia) that affects more than 2.5 million Americans, significantly impairs the quality of life, increases the risk of stroke five-fold and doubles the risk of death. Researchers tested a special cardiac MRI on four patients, demonstrating it is possible to image the beating heart accurately enough to guide radiation therapy to treat Afib arrhythmias, with the challenge being to image a beating heart accurately to ensure the radiation therapy reaches the target without damaging the heart or surrounding tissues. The researchers are working to further develop the cardiac MRI and test it in patients.

Source = e-Travel Blackboard: G.A A sophisticated online scam luring Australian travellers with cheap airfares is likely to fool even the savviest of online customers, said police.Queensland police discovered the airfare scam last week along with a Vietnamese-hosted site selling credit card details, phone numbers, and email and postal addresses of 1,000 Australians, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.The scam sees people sent real tickets from real airlines, purchased from stolen credit cards.As people can call the airlines to confirm their seats and are not asked for immediate payment, the scam is given an air of authenticity, Detective Superintendent Brian Hay said.”What is enticing about these websites, and may even serve to alleviate the fear many people have of shopping on these sites, is that payment is not requested until the tickets arrive from the airline,” he said.According to police, it is only when the airlines realise tickets have been purchased with stolen cards and subsequently cancel them that people are left with worthless tickets.”What we see here is unlike anything we’ve seen before,” Mr Hay said. “Two victims from one simple scam – the person’s bank who owns the credit card is now out pocket $2000, as is the person buying the tickets who sent the money after receiving their tickets.”The sites involved include www.cheapflightsonly.net, www.onlycheapflights.net, www.cheaper-flights.net.au and www.flisave.com.Travelscene American Express general manager Jacqui Timmins has said the best protection against these types of scams is for consumers to deal only with travel agents licensed in Australia.“[U]nless you’re dealing with an Australian-based, licensed travel agent, you may as well be putting your hard earned cash through the paper shredder,” Ms Timmins said.
