Legislation ordering postal workers back to work was passed in the House of Commons during a special session that dragged on into the wee hours of Saturday morning.Bill C-89 passed third reading by a vote of 166 to 43.The Senate is now set to sit Saturday and, if necessary, Sunday, to deal with the bill, which would go into effect at noon eastern time on the day following royal assent.The legislative push came as Ottawa, as well as smaller towns in Ontario, B.C., and Quebec became the latest targets of rotating strikes by the Canadian Union of Postal Workers.Despite the rush to pass the legislation, Labour Minister Patty Hajdu encouraged Canada Post and CUPW to remain at the bargaining table.“They can still pull a deal off,” she said.That said, Hajdu added: “Obviously, we would prefer that the parties are able to negotiate an agreement together, but the time has come that we need to be prepared to take action if they cannot.”Hajdu referred to mail delivery as an “essential service” and said small businesses that rely on the postal service to deliver their goods over the busy Christmas season could go bankrupt if the situation isn’t remedied quickly.“And when I say small, I mean really small. I mean people that, you know, sell marmalade or handmade goods, that this is the most profitable time of their year and if they are unable to make their earnings this time of year, they very well might be facing the end of their business.”Labour leaders and New Democrat MPs slammed the government for undermining the collective-bargaining process. The government has removed all incentive for Canada Post to reach a negotiated settlement now that the agency knows workers will be ordered back to work by early next week, they charged.“The right to strike is an integral part of the collective bargaining process,” said Canadian Labour Congress president Hassan Yussuff. “Without it, an employer has no incentive to bargain in good faith, and workers have no recourse to demand a fair process.”Canada Post seems to have convinced Prime Minister Justin Trudeau that Christmas wouldn’t come without a back-to-work bill, added CUPW president Mike Palecek.“The mail was moving, and people know it,” he said. “People have been getting their mail and online orders delivered. That was the point of our rotating-strike tactics, not to pick a fight with the public.”NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh accused the Liberals of hypocrisy, professing to believe in the right to collective bargaining while bringing in what he called the “worst, most draconian” back-to-work legislation.“They’ve shown their true face … that this government is not a friend of working people,” Singh said.New Democrat MPs voted against the motion to speed up debate on the back-to-work legislation, with many making an elaborate show of walking out of the Commons after voting, raising their fists in salute to postal workers watching from the public gallery. The votes of those who walked out were not counted.Six New Democrats remained in the chamber – representative of the small number the party maintained would get a chance to speak during the subsequent expedited debate on the bill.CUPW maintains the bill is unconstitutional and is threatening to challenge it in court.The union won a court challenge against back-to-work legislation imposed on postal workers in 2011 by the previous Conservative government. The court ruled in 2016 that by removing workers’ right to strike, the bill violated their right to freedom of association and expression.Hajdu argued that her bill is “dramatically different” from the “heavy-handed” approach taken by the Harper government and takes into account the concerns of both the union and Canada Post.But two independent senators, Frances Lankin and Diane Griffin, wrote Hajdu to express their concern that the bill may not be constitutional. The pair said Hajdu had promised to issue a government analysis detailing how the bill does not violate the Charter of Rights and Freedoms but it still had not materialized by Friday evening.CUPW members have held rotating walkouts for a month, causing massive backlogs of unsorted mail and packages at postal depots, though Canada Post and the union dispute how big the pileup is.Canada Post says it could take weeks – even stretching into 2019 – to clear the backlog that has built up, especially at major sorting centres in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver.CUPW’s 50,000 members, in two groups, are demanding better pay for rural and suburban carriers, more job security and minimum guaranteed hours.Waseem is a letter carrier for #CanadaPost.

Former militants of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) and their supporters have decided to form a political party named “Crusaders for Democracy” and seek tickets from the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) to contest the August 17 Sri Lankan parliamentary elections, the New Indian Express reported.Militants and their supporters from the Northern and Eastern districts of Jaffna, Kilinochchi, Mullaitivu, Mannar, Vavuniya and Batticaloa gathered outside the famous Nallur Kandswamy temple in Jaffna on Friday and took an oath to fight for the rights of the Tamil-speaking people by democratic means such as participation in elections through a political party to be known as “Crusaders for Democracy.” However, despite its commitment to pursue the democratic path, the CFD is not regretful about its past involvement with the LTTE. The press release on its formation noted that Friday’s gathering was held at the place near the Nallur temple where “Thyagi” Thileepan of the LTTE fasted unto death to secure the rights of the Tamils when the Indian Peace Keeping Force held sway in Jaffna in 1987.Athmalingam Ravindra alias Rupan, who had held high political and administrative positions in the LTTE both in Trincomalee district and in the Wanni from the early 1990s to May 2009, has already put in an application for a TNA ticket in Trincomalee district. CFD’s Coordinator Nadesapillai Vithyatharan said that a request will be made to the TNA to give nomination to at least two former militants in each of the districts of the Northern and Eastern provinces where the TNA holds sway. Among the aims of the CFD are: the establishment of a new political culture and a new kind of Tamil leadership which will be marked by honesty and courage; speedy implementation of rehabilitation and livelihood programs; securing the release of Tamil political prisoners; and building bridges with fair and accommodative political elements and leaders in South Sri Lanka with a view to securing an amicable political settlement of the Tamil question.

OSU then-junior forward Julia McKinnon (17) faces off with a Western Ontario player Sept. 28, 2014 during an exhibition match at the OSU Ice Rink. OSU and Western Ontario tied 2-2. Credit: Lantern File PhotoThe Ohio State women’s ice hockey team did not face any teams on the schedule, but that didn’t mean it took the week off — only the second so far this season — before focusing on its final series of 2015 calendar year. OSU held practice Tuesday through Saturday of last week before resuming a normal week of practice before its series against Minnesota Duluth (7-10-1) this weekend. With three weeks off after Saturday, the team is not focused on the somewhat irregular schedule.“It didn’t feel like a weekend off,” senior forward Melani Moylan said. “I think everyone knows that any team in the (Western Collegiate Hockey Association) is strong competition, you can’t take a weekend off.” Juggling linesMoylan, who played on OSU’s top line with senior Kendall Curtis and junior Claudia Kepler during the Windjammer Classic in Vermont, is expected to open the weekend in that spot as the team looks to create more offense against a Minnesota Duluth team that has allowed only eight goals in its last five games.“(Curtis) and (Kepler) are really good goal scorers,” Moylan said. “I think me being with or without them, they know how to get the team going and starting off right. I’m not worried.”Moylan is not the only skater in a different role this weekend. Senior Julia McKinnon is expected to play her third and fourth games of the season at forward. The British Columbia product sat out the first two games of the year as she recovered from ankle surgery but played the next dozen on defense.Despite being one of OSU’s better offensive players in the 2014-15 campaign, McKinnon has tallied just four points in 14 games so far this season.“I am here to score goals,” McKinnon said. “But this year has just been different being put on defense and just with the surgery, but I can’t make excuses, (I) just have to go out there and score some goals this weekend.”With McKinnon likely back at forward, OSU is encouraged that it will be able to create more offensive chances. After the first 14 games without McKinnon’s offensive prowess, the coaching staff recognized the need for a change.“She’s so versatile,” assistant coach Carson Dugan said. “She’s one of our smartest players, she can play different positions so she’s definitely helping us by doing that.”With redshirt junior Bryanna Neuwald expected to miss her eighth and ninth straight games of the season over the weekend, sophomore Julianna Iafallo is set to play defense this weekend, making her the third skater in a new role.Moylan, who replaced Iafallo to join the top unit with Kepler and Curtis, fancies herself a different player from her linemates.“I’m no goal scorer,” Moylan said. “I’m going to go in the corner and get (Curtis) or (Kepler) the puck, whereas their line of (Maddy Field, Lauren Spring and McKinnon), all three of them work well together at scoring.”Greater depthWith McKinnon playing on the team’s de facto second line, Duggan expects the Buckeyes to give Minnesota Duluth several different looks in different styles of play.“Every successful team has depth,” Duggan said. “A lot of times coaching staffs in the league do so much preparation, so much video, some love to line match, so it’s nice to have a different look on each line.”McKinnon’s versatility on the ice illustrates what Duggan means by “different look” on the lines.“With McKinnon back at forward with her speed and size and creativity,” Duggan said, “she just can create so much.” OSU recognizes that its skaters playing in roles they are more familiar with will make the team more dynamic.“Having a grinding line and a scoring line is important,” McKinnon said. “When we played against Vermont, each line scored a goal. When we’re not getting everyone going a team can shut us down.”OSU is scheduled to drop the puck against Minnesota Duluth at 7:07 p.m. on Friday and 4:07 p.m. on Saturday.
With notebooks, tablets, and smartphones, manufacturers love to brag about few things more than how light or thin they can make a device. That’s exactly what ZiiLabs is trumpeting about it’s new Jaguar3 tablet reference design — which comes as slim as 7.4mm, making it the thinnest 10.1 tablet around (at least for now).What has ZiiLabs crammed inside that slender shell? How about a dual-core ZMS-20 1.5GHz ARM Cortex A9 processor and 48 of Zii’s StemCell Processors for added horsepower? Next quarter, the company plans to double that muscle and offer the quad-core ZMS-40 powerplant with 96 StemCell cores — and it’s still all packed onto a board about 4.5 by 2.5 inches. Display duties are handled by a 1280×800 touchscreen, and dual cameras are available with support for up to 12 megapixels on the rear. Android 3.2 is onboard on the reference design, but depending on when manufacturers start placing their orders, Jaguar3-based tablets could very well ship with Ice Cream Sandwich.Design of the Jaguar3’s exterior was handled by Creative, who has teamed up with ZiiLabs before — on the ZiiO series tablets. They weren’t exactly a hit, but they also weren’t nearly as sexy or powerful as the Jaguar3, so perhaps Creative fair better with the updated hardware.In addition to the slender 10.1 incher, a pair of slightly chubbier 7-inch models were also revealed. They’ll provide a budget option for folks who want an alternative to new Android tablets like the Lenovo IdeaPad A1.You likely won’t find these hitting the streets with ZiiLabs branding. Rather, they’ll churn them out for other companies who will choose the specific components and set pricing. The good news is that ZiiLabs claims it can produce Jaguar3 tablets for around $100 — meaning the trend of sub-$200 Android (and eventually even Windows 8) tablets should continue unabated.More at ZiiLabs and Engadget
Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The next Greek elections may be not be in sight for at least a year, but Yanis Varoufakis stepped in to name himself as a contender for the Prime Minister hot seat.The controversial former Finance Minister of the first Tsipras administration has recently launched his political party, MERA25, an acronym for ‘Front of European Realistic Disobedience’, the number standing for 2025, the year set as deadline for European Reform to have been achieved, as the mandate of Varoufakis’ international initiative DiEM25, out of which his party has spawned.After his resignation from the position of Finance Minister in 2015, after the Greek government’s decision to back down from its initial anti-austerity policy and fully concede to the terms of the bailout program imposed by the country’s lenders, Varoufakis has rebranded himself as an anti-austerity campaigner and a very vocal critic of the European Union’s political failures and shortcomings.His ‘Movement for Democracy in Europe (by) 2025′ has gained support in France, Germany, Ireland, Portugal, Poland, Lithuania and the UK, among other EU countries, and been endorsed by intellectual activists such as Canadian journalist and writer Naomi Klein, US linguist professor Noam Chomsky and British musician Brian Eno.In an interview with Turkish state-run news station TRT World, Varoufakis repeated his version of the negotiations process between Greece and the troika on the build-up to the controversial referendum, which resulted in the Greek people dismissing the bailout policies.“When you’re representing the bankrupt country you need two things, in order for your presence at that table to make a difference: you need the support of your people, that we had, and you want the support of your cabinet that, I did not have,” Varoufakis told to journalist Imran Garda. “If my prime minister backed my default, we would have changed Europe,” he argued and stressed: “I’ve never felt helpless in Brussels. I’ve felt helpless in Athens, when I realised that my own comrades had capitulated”.“So the way you’re going about this now is in order to essentially become the prime minister of Greece?” asked the Turkish journalist, to which the firebrand economics-professor-turned-politician responded: “It sounds like a nightmare to become the prime minister of Greece, but then again, it’s a dirty job, somebody has to do it.”Varoufakis’ proposals for Greece include public debt restructuring, a tax cut, and the creation of a state-run ‘bad bank’ to manage household debt and protect debtors from foreclosures.

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Delancy challenged on leadership style, calls Floyd Hall, ‘man of integrity’ Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 17 Dec 2015 – The Special Investigation and Prosecution Team trials will start on January 18th, 2016 as scheduled. Every motion put to Justice Paul Harrison was denied and dismissed earlier today as the controversial cases, which are three years behind a scheduled start seem to be poised to gain momentum once we are past the holidays. For some of the defendants this is good news as they are ready to see the trial begin, for others including Michael Misick and Floyd Hall, there is disappointment. Misick tried to stay the trial claiming it was unconstitutional, that it was an abusive process victimizing him for political reasons and that it rivaled the specialty rule of the treaty which supports that charges cannot be increased. Still, Justice Harrison concluded that the treaty is irrelevant as it is not adopted by TCI law, that the constitutional infraction is also irrelevant and if Michael Misick deems it necessary he can appeal any verdict and that ‘there was no abuse of process’. The Justice said the offenses linked to alleged bribery and conspiracy are properly laid.’ In the case of ex Deputy Premier, Floyd Hall the Justice ruled that the six month time frame for the trial start to be delayed is excessive. While he empathized with the new attorney for Hall that the evidence and information for the trial is both complex and plentiful, the Justice said the attorney which Floyd Hall had from the start should be able to appraise the new team on the case. Harrison today told Earl Whitter, ‘council will have to make some effort to adjust’ as the trial will start in January on the date already proposed. It was moved also today, that Michael Misick would see his curfew relaxed for the holidays, this came from Andrew Mitchell, lawyer for the SIPT. The proceedings are now adjourned until January.

Brighton & Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton has heaped praises on the club’s central defensive pairing of Shane Duffy and Lewis Dunk.The Seagulls’ success in establishing themselves in the Premier League owes a lot to their defensive capabilities, built on the reliable centre-back partnership of Dunk and Duffy.Dunk, who’s Brighton’s vice-captain became an England international last November, while Duffy is a regular with the Republic of Ireland national team.Hughton says the pair are vital members of his team and feels both players can improve by watching Liverpool’s Virgil Van Dijk play.“What Van Dijk is to Liverpool, that’s what our two are to us,” said Hughton, according to Belfast Telegraph.“We know what level he is but if I’m looking at what you would regard as two outstanding centre-halves at our level, ours are as valuable to us as what he is to them.”Hughton’s first words after being sacked Manuel R. Medina – May 22, 2019 The former Brighton and Hove Albion manager says he was “hugely disappointed and surprised” when he was fired from the club.“The two we have will look at the best around where they can learn from, what they can pick up from. At the moment, he (Van Dijk) is a great role model. He doesn’t miss many games, is good in both boxes and is a top, top all-around player.”Despite being four points clear at the top of the Premier League, Liverpool was beaten 2-1 by second-placed Manchester City in their last league game, before crashing out of the FA Cup courtesy of a 2-1 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday.Asked if the Liverpool can end their long wait for a first division title, Hughton said the Reds are favourites but “wouldn’t put money on it”.“I think they are favourites simply because of the points difference, and I think they’ve been outstanding,” he said.“But I couldn’t tell you who will win it. And certainly, I wouldn’t put money on it.”

Angela Lang/CNET Apple says its continuing to expand its investments in US manufacturing.The smartphone maker spent $60 billion with 9,000 American component suppliers and companies in 2018, the company said in a post Monday. That’s an increase of more than 10 percent from the year before. Apple highlighted several of its US-made components, including touch-sensitive glass for iPhone and iPad models made by Corning in Kentucky, as well as wireless communication hardware made in Colorado, Massachusetts and Oregon. Apple said the total number of jobs it’s created or supported since 2011 has tripled “from almost 600,000 to 2 million across all 50 states.” However, it’s not always easy to be “assembled in the USA.” In 2012, Apple CEO Tim Cook announced the company was moving some Mac production to the US. But when Apple started assembling the $3,000 Mac Pro in Texas, it reportedly ran into problems. Apple struggled to find US suppliers that could make enough screws for the Mac Pro, according to a report Monday from The New York Times. It was one of several problems that delayed sales of the Mac, according to the Times, and Apple ended up ordering screws from China. When reached for comment, an Apple spokeswoman pointed back to the company’s Monday post.

About 95 percent of the BSE 500 companies have given decent returns to the investors in the past three days, as the benchmark indices have witnessed massive gains following the announcement of some positive measures in the budget for 2016-2017.While the BSE Sensex gained over 1,500 points in the last three trading sessions ending March 3, the 50-share Nifty went up by 488 points. The rally in the indices was mainly led by the rising hopes on a rate cut by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) in the wake of the government’s status quo on fiscal consolidation. Presenting his third budget on Monday, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had kept the fiscal deficit target for the next fiscal year unchanged at 3.5 percent, sharply in contrast with the call by bankers and analysts that the finance minister would deviate from the fiscal discipline path to accommodate for higher government spending.The announcement triggered heavy buying in most banking stocks, which were beaten down in the previous sessions over a sharp decline in profits for the December quarter due to higher provisioning for bad loans.Stocks in the BSE 500 index also saw huge gains, with some of them giving more than 25 percent returns in just three days after the budget presentation.Share price of Suven Life Sciences posted the biggest gains among the BSE 500 stocks, climbing by over 33 percent in the first three trading sessions in March. While Inox Wind was the second best performer in the index, gaining a little over 30 percent, stock prices of Delta Corp, Marksans Pharma and Hathway Cable & Datacom went up by 27 percent each. In contrast, 25 of the BSE 500 components witnessed losses in the past three sessions, with United Spirits figuring among the list. United Spirits shares fell over six percent.”The probability of the GST Bill getting passed in the current session of Parliament looks low and markets will now look out for reforms on the executive side,” Dipen Shah, senior vice-president and head of private client group research, Kotak Securities, told the Financial Express.
The capital city Dhaka has virtually been isolated from the rest of the country as a make-shift court is set to announce verdict in a graft case against BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia today.The situation prevaling in the Dhaka city is similar to the one seen on a day of hartal when people hardly come to the streets fearing violence.People in all over the country have been apparently panicked by the additional security measures taken by the government ahead of delivery of the judgement in Zia Orphanage Trust case.The BNP claimed that more than 3,500 leaders and activists of the opposition camp have already been detained in the past nine days or so.The members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) have been continuing searches at every entry point of the capital as well as at different places inside the city.The government has already deployed 10,000 police men and 20 platoons Barder Guard Bangladesh (BGB) personnel in Dhaka.The city looks lean.Political analysts say if a three-time prime minister, Khaleda Zia, has been convicted, it will bring no good to the country’s politics.This is for the first time in the Bangladesh history, a former prime minister is likely to be convicted.Analysts also say the verdict may leave long-term effects on the overall politics, especially the next general electionsBNP standing committee member Amir Khosru Mahmud Chowdhury said, “BNP didn’t declare any programme. But, the government has created unstable situation deploying its party men, as well as memebrs of police, RAB and BGB.”The police, however, defended the security measures, saying they are prepared to ensure peace and security for the people and to tackle any subversive activities carried out by BNP men after the verdict.Home ministry Asaduzzaman Khan told Prothom Alo on Wednesday that the preparation has been taken to tackle any law and order situation.”The measures are taken based on concrete information,” he claimed.A total of 69 platoons BGB were deployed across the country till Wednesday and 65 platoons more had been kept ready, according to the ministry.Asked about ruling party Awami League’s preparation over the verdict, AL presidium member Faruk Khan said this is responsibility of a sincere government.Referring to the government claims, Supreme Court lawyer Shahdeen Malik told Prothom Alo that such huge deployment hampers public movement, rallies, freedom of speech and daily activities. “Such steps are contrary to fundamental rights enshrined in the constitution.”He maintained that keeping the entire capital under a virtual siege in the name of security is tantamount to violation of public rights.

A number of years ago, a scale model of the Gundam RX-78-2 was built in Japan. It was an impressive statue that many from Japan and around the world flocked to see. Not to be outdone, the Chinese created their own life-sized statue of another famous anime mech: Evangelion’s EVA Unit-01. The statue is so large that it has made it into the Guinness Book of World Records.This statue was actually built last summer and revealed at the ChinaJoy gaming expo but was torn down and reassembled elsewhere on Tuesday. The original construction (created by Chinese mobile game developer, Heitao) had the mech’s weapon, the Spear of Longinus, on the ground next to it. The reconstructed version has Unit-01 holding the spear upright.こういうことだそうですhttps://t.co/2s8IEZ5udF pic.twitter.com/kDMUWLv3rw— 中国住み (@livein_china) January 4, 2017The spear is what helps this statue set a world record. With no spear, the statue is roughly 13 meters tall. With the spear in hand, it shoots up to 24.8 meters in height. If you think that is cheating, consider that antenna and other extensions are taken into account for tallest buildings in the world competitions.The Unit-01 statue got the award in the category of world’s tallest Evangelion statue. Considering it is currently the only Evangelion statue on Earth, this seems unfair, but it’s probably a safe bet to assume others may try to outdo the size of this statue in the future. The actual award (which you can see below) lists Studio Khara as the statue’s owner, with cooperation from the China Shanghai Character License Administrative Corporation.This statue is certainly an impressive feat. You can tell that a lot of love went into its creation since it looks like it jumped straight out of the anime. Hopefully, this will set off a sort of arms race between folks who want to build more of these giant mech statues. Personally, I want to see someone recreate Gurren Laggann — though it’ll have to be the mech in its first form… not the one that is 10 million light years tall.View as: One Page Slides1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.
