Check it out Home Depot reverses homelessness

It then runs in reverse to show his backstory, including being robbed on the street and fleeing an abusive home. The spot ends the same way it began – with the youth looking at his empty bag – except in this case, he’s contemplating his decision to leave in the first place.center_img Facebook Twitter LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment last_img

West Fraser says worst of its BC mill cuts done

first_imgRBC Capital Markets analyst Paul Quinn, characterizing the second quarter as a “ferris wheel of issues, said lumber earnings were below his expectations, made worse by worse-than-expected export duties of $51 million.While there is no quick recovery expected in B.C., West Fraser said its fortunes are looking brighter in the U.S. south that it started expanding into 15 years ago in the height of B.C.’s mountain pine beetle outbreak. The region now accounts for over 70 per cent of its lumber production.“Going forward, we expect a less disruptive half across many of our businesses, particularly in the U.S. south,” said Ferris. VANCOUVER — Mill cutbacks in British Columbia are still happening, but West Fraser Timber Co Ltd. said Friday that the worst of the pullback is behind it.The company, like many in B.C.’s lumber industry, has cut back and closed mills in recent months in response to limited log supplies and a plunge in lumber prices from record highs last year.Canfor, for example, announced late Thursday it was indefinitely suspending operations at its Mackenzie sawmill and permanently cutting a shift at its Isle Pierre mill to reduce output For its part, West Fraser CEO Ray Ferris said the company’s already announced cuts should put it on a more stable footing in the province going forward.“From a strategic standpoint, much of our heavy lifting in British Columbia is now behind us,” Ferris told a conference call Friday to discuss the company’s latest financial results.West Fraser announced plans late last year to cut shifts at its mills in Quesnel, Fraser Lake, and in the last quarter announced it would also cut a shift at 100 Mile House and close its mill in Chasm in response to the squeeze on margins. The permanent reductions totalled about 614 million board feet.“These permanent reductions, coupled with the impact of the temporary curtailments in the first half of 2019 by approximately 250 million board feet, have been disruptive, costly, and extremely difficult for our employees, our log contractors, our suppliers and our communities,” said Ferris, who stepped into the chief executive role July 1.The shift in fortunes compared with last year were clear in West Fraser’s results, which showed it lost $17 million, or 25 cents per share for the quarter ending June 30, compared with earnings $397 million or $5.19 a share last year.The results were also well below analyst expectations of adjusted earnings of nine cents per share according to Thomson Reuters Eikon.last_img read more

Senior UN envoy meets with Lebanese Prime Minister

14 November 2008A senior United Nations envoy met with Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Siniora today and conveyed to him Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s strong support for the establishment of diplomatic relations between Lebanon and Syria. Mr. Ban is following this issue with very close interest, UN Special Coordinator for Lebanon Michael Williams said after the meeting. Mr. Williams added that Mr. Ban was also very encouraged by the national dialogue on a defence strategy that Lebanese leaders have engaged on this year and by the reconciliation initiatives that have taken place in Lebanon in recent weeks. Last month Mr. Ban welcomed the move by Syria and Lebanon to establish full diplomatic relations as a “landmark event” that will benefit both countries. “This joint effort between two nations reinforces the sovereignty, stability and political independence of the Lebanese State in accordance with the Taif Accord and relevant Security Council resolutions,” he said in a statement, referring to the agreement that ended Lebanon’s long-running civil war. read more

Ban calls for continued aid to Libyan civilians as crisis continues

9 June 2011Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today called for continued international efforts to help the Libyan people “end their suffering,” but warned “there is no quick fix” to the crisis. In a message to the third meeting of the Contact Group on Libya in Abu Dhabi, Mr. Ban said: “The people of Libya deserve to live in peace under a democratic system. Let us all continue working together, as a united international community, to end their suffering and help them build a future that meets their legitimate and strongly felt aspirations.”However, he said that “clearly, there is no quick fix to the crisis; the problem will not end quickly.”“Democracy, human rights and social justice are at the core of the grievances being voiced by the Libyan people,” he said in remarks delivered by B. Lynn Pascoe, Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs. Mr Ban said that a UN humanitarian needs assessment mission in and around Tripoli and other areas reported: “Food stocks are getting depleted; there are fuel shortages, concerns about access to water services, and an acute lack of medical personnel owing to the departure of most foreign nationals.” Up to 25,000 Chadians remain stranded in the town of Gatroum, in south-western Libya. Some 950,000 people have left Libya, of which 278,000 are third-country nationals and 250,000 are nationals from neighbouring countries, he said. Mr. Ban said his Special Envoy to Libya, Abdul Elah al-Khatib, continued to lead efforts to get the parties to end the military confrontation and work for a political solution.In Tripoli, earlier this week Mr. Khatib met with the Prime Minister and the Chair of the People’s Congress, urging them to share their views with the UN regarding a transitional period that would allow for a political process that would meet “the legitimate aspirations of the Libyan people.” Mr. Khatib also visited the opposition-held city of Benghazi where he discussed the same issues with the Transitional National Council Chairman. Mr. Khatib’s objective is to determine how best to help the Libyan parties agree on a transition linked to a political process that would end the current fighting in the country. The Special Envoy also briefed the Security Council today by video link.In Geneva today the UN-ordered panel investigating human rights abuses in Libya presented to the Human Rights Council a report that claims both Government forces and the opposition have committed war crimes. The report of the International Commission of Inquiry said “crimes against humanity and war crimes have been committed by the Government forces of Libya,” according to a news release issued in Geneva.“The commission received fewer reports of facts which would amount to the commission of international crimes by opposition forces; however, it did find some acts which would constitute war crimes,” the report said.In presenting the report, Cherif Bassiouni, chairperson of the commission, said it was the result of meetings with more than 350 persons and the study of a large number of reports, submissions and other documentation, amounting to more than 5,000 pages, over 580 videos and at least 2,200 photographs.The commission found that what had started as a series of peaceful demonstrations was met with violent opposition by the Government and those supporting it, which then escalated into a civil war in which opposing forces fought battles in cities and for the control of territory.“In these contexts, there had been acts constituting murder, unlawful imprisonment and other forms of severe violations of fundamental rules of international law. These included torture, persecution and enforced disappearance, committed by Government forces and their supporters as part of a widespread or systematic attack against a civilian population with the knowledge that the attack was directed against part of the Libyan population,” Mr. Bassiouni said.The Libyan representative at the “interactive dialogue” between the Human Rights Council and the commission of inquiry said that Libya had cooperated fully with the commission and that “despite the tension and turmoil,” Libya remained committed to its international obligations, including a firm commitment to ensure rights and freedoms.Libya presented a written report to the commission saying that no widespread and systematic violations of human rights had taken place under the orders of the Libyan authorities and denying widespread and systematic attacks against civilians, torture and other violations. Yesterday the prosecutor for the International Criminal Court (ICC) said investigators are gathering evidence that the Libyan leadership is using rape as a tool of war and repression and had acquired large quantities of drugs for its soldiers in an apparent bid to make them more likely to commit sexual assault.“We have information to confirm that it was a policy in Libya to rape those who were against the Government,” Luis Moreno-Ocampo, the ICC Prosecutor, told reporters at United Nations Headquarters. “We are getting some information that [Libyan leader Muammar al-] Qadhafi decided to [use] rape. Rape is a new aspect of the repression,” he said.Mr. Moreno-Ocampo said that investigators were finding indications of acquisition of Viagra-type medications “to enhance the possibility to rape.”The contact group, consisting of United States, France, Britain, Italy, Qatar, Jordan and Kuwait, held its first meeting in Qatar and a second in Rome. read more

ECOSOC resolution would boost UN emergency aid efforts

Entitled “Strengthening of the coordination of emergency humanitarian assistance of the United Nations,” the terms of the text calls on belligerents to comply with their obligations under humanitarian, human rights and refugee law. It also urges all States to take necessary measures to ensure the safety and security of humanitarian personnel.Under a section that deals with how best to transition relief efforts to sustainable development, ECOSOC stressed the importance of improving the institutional capacity of least developed countries affected by conflict and natural disasters. This would include the provision of adequate support for the rehabilitation, reconstruction, poverty reduction and where appropriate, peace-building efforts.ECOSOC Vice-President Valery P. Kuchinsky said the resolution, adopted at the end of a segment on humanitarian affairs, benefited from the expertise and perspectives expressed by the Member States, the UN Secretariat and specialized agencies, and humanitarian partners. The two-and-a-half day segment had included three panels – on humanitarian financing, the transition from relief to development and on the effects of HIV/AIDS and other widespread diseases – as well as five information briefings.The resolution also calls upon UN organizations to improve and increase consistency in assessing humanitarian needs. This improvement would take place, among other things, by enhancing the quality, accuracy and transparency of needs assessment as well as including States and other humanitarian actors in assessment missions.In addition, the text urges the UN Emergency Relief Coordinator to develop a global humanitarian financial tracking system and to refine the comprehensive system for the collection and dissemination of data on humanitarian needs and contributions. In this connection, donors were encouraged to consider taking steps to harmonize reporting requirements as well as to enhance reporting to the financial tracking system. read more

UN SecretaryGeneral extends greetings for Eid Al Adha

“Eid Al Adha is a celebration of sacrifice for the common good, family and community, and compassion and solidarity with the least amongst us,” said Mr. Ban in a video message for the occasion. “At a time when societies face complex challenges – violent conflict, displacement, division – let us draw on our common humanity to build a better world for all,” he added. Similarly, in a separate message, Tadamichi Yamamoto, Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Afghanistan and the head of the UN mission in the country (UNAMA) also extended his best wishes on the occasion. “Eid Al Adha is a time of peace, which Afghans richly deserve,” said Mr. Yamamoto, in a news release issued yesterday by the Mission. “The UN remains a committed partner and supporter of Afghans in their efforts to achieve stability, prosperity and a lasting peace,” he noted, expressing hope that all Afghans will be able to celebrate the occasion with family and friends. read more

Major steps in the development of the Hayes Creek zincgoldsilver project

first_imgPNX Metals Ltd has signed an agreement with a subsidiary of Kirkland Lake Gold Ltd for the acquisition of four Mineral Leases at Fountain Head in the Pine Creek region of the Northern Territory, Australia. 100% ownership of the high-grade Hayes Creek zinc-gold-silver project has also been affirmed.The acquisition of the MLs represents a key milestone in the development of the Hayes Creek project as it secures the proposed location for the project’s process plant. The area was identified through the PFS as being the preferred plant site for a number of reasons, including:Close proximity to the mining areas at Iron Blow and Mt Bonnie (approximately 12km)Excellent existing infrastructure including high-voltage power, rail, gas, water and roadsIt is an existing disturbed site with historic open pits proposed for use as tailings storage.With the agreement to acquire Fountain Head, the proposed process plant location has now been finalised and the project environmental Notice of Intent will now be submitted to the Northern Territory Environment Protection Authority.The transaction will result in no cash outlay for PNX and cements the significant project capital and operating cost savings this site provides as identified during the PFS.As part of the agreement, PNX will also take 100% ownership of the Moline Exploration Project which is highly prospective for gold and base metals (currently owned 51% by PNX under an existing farm-in agreement with KL Gold.In return for the acquisition of Fountain Head and balance of the Moline Project, PNX has agreed to carve out three exploration areas within the Burnside project area that are also part of the farm-in agreement and 51% owned by PNX. The transfer of these areas will allow KL Gold to continue with its regional gold exploration program in those areas and PNX will retain the right to explore for base metals.PNX is also pleased to report that KL Gold’s option to clawback 30% of the Hayes Creek project has now lapsed, affirming PNX’s unencumbered 100% interest in the project. This simplified ownership structure will allow for a more efficient process to finance and develop the Hayes Creek project and potentially improve the financial returns.PNX Managing Director James Fox said; “We are pleased to have finalised the agreement for the acquisition of the process plant site at Fountain Head for no cash outlay to PNX.“The benefits of the area are significant for the project as it is the preferred location for the Hayes Creek process plant and tailings facility as contemplated in our PFS due to being located on granted MLs with excellent infrastructure and in close proximity to the mining areas at Iron Blow and Mt Bonnie.“We will continue to advance the project development particularly in light of the strong appreciation in base metals prices and further tightness in the zinc concentrate market since the PFS was published in mid-2017. The project DFS is expected later in 2018 with the potential for production in early 2020.“Acquiring the remaining 49% of the Moline Project is also an excellent outcome as it contains a number of strong zinc and gold exploration targets, and we look forward to drilling these during 2018.”In mid-2017 PNX completed a PFS over the Hayes Creek project confirming it to be a promising future low-cost, high-margin zinc and precious metals mine.The PFS is based on the development of the high-grade Iron Blow and Mt Bonnie zinc-gold-silver VMS deposits which are located less than 3km apart on wholly owned Mineral Leases and 12km to the south of Fountainhead, within the Pine Creek region of the Northern Territory, 170km south of Darwin.The PFS forecasts the project to generate a NPV10 of $133 million, based on net smelter revenue from the sale of zinc and precious metals concentrates of $628 million over a 6.5 year mine life through annual production of 18,200 t zinc, 14,700 oz gold, and 1.4M oz silver (39,100 t of zinc equivalent). With a low $58 million initial capital expenditure requirement, the project is forecast to have a 73% IRR, and very short pay-back period of 15 months. The short pay-back period coupled with this acquisition, project risk continues to be effectively managed and reduced.It is envisaged that the project can be ready for development in 2020 and will directly employ approximately 130 people.The DFS and Environmental Impact Statement are now well underway with GR Engineering Services recently engaged to provide process design and engineering expertise. The DFS is expected to build on the excellent outcomes achieved in the PFS.last_img read more

American Empress riverboat tour calls Vancouver home port

first_imgo Nine-day tours start in Vancouver and in Clarkston. Fares range from $3,795 to $6,595. The 2014 cruise season runs through Nov. 16.o The 223-passenger riverboat operated as the Empress of the North from 2003 until 2008 when its owner, Majestic America Line, went bankrupt. The American Queen Steamboat Co. said it spent $5 million on renovations before relaunching the boat as the American Empress.o On the Web: www.americanqueensteamboatcompany.comThe Columbia River has powered this region’s economy for hundreds of years.Native American paddlers in dugouts relied on its waters as an artery of commerce.Explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark rode the river toward the Pacific Ocean while checking out America’s biggest real-estate deal.Trading vessels docked on its northern bank after the Hudson’s Bay Company headquartered its Northwest fur empire at Fort Vancouver.But now a trip on the great river of the West isn’t an artery for conducting business: It’s the product.Call it an alternate take on the familiar initials “CRC.” They once stood for Columbian River Crossing, a now-defunct joint megafreeway project. In this case, they mean that Vancouver is generating some economic activity from Columbia River cruising.Riverboat cruises — including one based in Vancouver — are putting the Columbia River on the travel map. Tours of the Columbia-Snake river system from Astoria, Ore., to Lewiston-Clarkston got major media coverage a couple of months ago. A couple of publications focused on the American Empress, which calls Vancouver its home port. The biggest riverboat west of the Mississippi is operated by American Queen Steamboat Co. of Memphis.Anne Kalosh, who wrote about her American Empress cruise for the Miami Herald, says Washington and Oregon have a world-class attraction in the Columbia River Gorge. While some see the Gorge’s designation as a national scenic area a barrier to development and locals can eventually zone out on the dramatic landscape, many visitors who see it with fresh eyes are impressed. As Kalosh wrote in June, “A well-traveled friend ranks the Columbia River Gorge on par with Norway, Alaska and Montenegro’s Kotor Fjord. After sailing through all of them, I agree.”last_img read more

McDonalds Sales Continue Decline after being Hit by China Meat Scandal

first_imgFast food chain McDonald’s has been posting continued loss since a Chinese media report revealed its suspected sale of expired beef and chicken used for the nuggets.Reports on the lack of quality of the meat from China’s Shanghai Husi Food, owned by US-based OSI Group, has hurt the MNC food chain.McDonald’s sales have slipped to a decade-worst low at 3.7 percent in August, following the suspected sale of expired meat, which was revealed during late July.The restaurant posted the sharpest decline since the drop of 4.7 percent in February 2003, it was revealed on Tuesday. In August, sales slipped by 14.5 percent across Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa, reported Wall Street Journal.The company stated that it recently changed the head of the US business team and has confirmed the resignation of its top US marketing executive after the China meat controversy.Shanghai Husi Food have also supplied meat to other big chains like Yum Brands and KFC but McDonald’s has been one of its biggest customers.McDonald’s has also apologised and is now seeking to restore customers’ trust in China, which has around 2,000 of its stores.The restaurant predicts the China issue will decline its third-quarter revenue by 15 cents to 20 cents per share. On Tuesday, McDonald’s stock prices slipped $1.41, by recording at $91.09 a share.”We are diligently working to effectively navigate the current market conditions to regain momentum,” WSJ quoted the press statement of McDonald’s Chief Executive Officer Don Thompson.Moreover, the fast food chain’s business has also dipped in its home market – USA. The sales plunged around 2.8 percent, which was worse than the estimation of 2 percent by analysts.The sales in Europe have also dipped by 0.7 percent in August, the company added.McDonald’s Joins Hands with Apple to Boost SalesApple unveiled its latest smartphone iPhone 6 on Tuesday. And McDonald’s, on the same day, announced that it would accept Apple pay in all of its US restaurants, following the launch of the mobile payments service, with an aim of making food purchases fast and easy for customers using iPhone 6 and other Apple devices.”We’re excited to see the mobile payments industry reach a potential inflection point. As the technology catches on, McDonald’s will be well positioned to leverage the investments we’ve made around the world,” Atif Rafiq, McDonald’s senior vice president and global chief digital officer, said in a statement.last_img read more

Law Professor Politics Play A Role In Harris County District Attorneys Office

first_img X 00:00 /01:10 Listen Incoming District Attorney Kim Ogg plans to investigate at least three Harris County prosecutors for misuse of official information. She accuses them of going beyond just notifying crime victims about a change in lawyers or status. But University of Houston Visiting Criminal Law Scholar Melissa Hamilton doesn’t think their actions rise to the level of statutory violations.“If, for example, all these prosecutors are saying to the victims is: ‘ we’ve pled your criminal out because we’re gonna be short-staffed’, I don’t see that that’s misinformation. You know, obviously, there’s gonna be a gap in their resources”, says Hamilton.  District Attorneys are also politicians, she adds. “You know, on the one hand you would expect professionalism in the transition, but on the other hand you have humans who, you know, may well be partisan and may well not, you know, want to assist somebody else who they may see as a transgressor”, Hamilton explains.  Tensions became public after 37 staffers were told they will no longer be employed after January 1st.

Research sheds light on how patterns form in bird feathers

first_img © 2013 ( —A new study by scientists in the U.S. and Taiwan has shown that birds have colorful and patterned feathers because of specific cellular interactions involving stem cells rather than through the direct involvement of encoding in DNA. Citation: Research sheds light on how patterns form in bird feathers (2013, April 26) retrieved 18 August 2019 from They next transplanted melanocyte progenitor cells from adult quail feathers into chicken embryos and found that the chickens produced pigmented feathers.The team looked at white feathers from several types of white chicken to determine whether the whiteness was caused by the absence of melanocytes or suppressed melanocyte differentiation, and they examined feathers with different colors at each end, and striped feathers, to try to determine how these patterns were formed. They found that while melanocytes may be present in apigmented regions and there were still melanocyte progenitor cells, the melanocytes were not differentiated. The researchers also found that the patterning was affected by the topological shape of the melanocyte stem cell progenitor niche. The appearance of pigment was also affected by agouti, a peptide found in the pulp in the feather follicles. Agouti had a modifying effect on pigmentation, since it was found to inhibit melanocytes and produce unpigmented regions. More information: Topology of Feather Melanocyte Progenitor Niche Allows Complex Pigment Patterns to Emerge, Science DOI: 10.1126/science.1230374ABSTRACTColor patterns of bird plumage affect animal behavior and speciation. Diverse patterns are present in different species and within the individual. Here, we study the cellular and molecular basis of feather pigment pattern formation. Melanocyte progenitors are distributed as a horizontal ring in the proximal follicle, sending melanocytes vertically up into the epithelial cylinder which gradually emerges as feathers grow. Different pigment patterns form by modulating the presence, arrangement, or differentiation of melanocytes. A layer of peripheral pulp further regulates pigmentation via patterned agouti expression. Lifetime feather cyclic regeneration resets pigment patterns for physiological needs. Thus, the evolution of stem cell niche topology allows complex pigment patterning via combinatorial co-option of simple regulatory mechanisms. Explore further Feathers exhibit complex pigment patterns and can be a great model to learn how morphogenesis patterns stem cells into organized tissues. Lin et al. identify feather follicle melanocyte progenitors and demonstrate how complex patterns can emerge from multi-dimensional modulations of simple regulatory mechanisms.

Journal information: Science Until now the patterning of pigmentation in bird feathers has been poorly understood, but the patterns and colors are known to be important for attracting mates, protecting from predators, and they also affect bird behavior and can exhibit seasonal variations. The new study found that the complex patterns formed by the pigments in the feather follicles were the result of several distinct mechanisms, including changes in melanocyte formation. The research team found that the first important process was the production of melanocytes, which are also found in hair, where they produce the pigment melanin. In hair, melanocyte stem cells (McSCs) are found in the follicle bulge at the base of the follicle. The new research found melanocyte progenitor stem cells in a ring in the proximal follicle, and showed that the melanocytes distribute upwards into the epithelial cylinder of the feather as it grows. The different patterns in each feather are determined by the arrangement and differentiation of pigmented and apigmented melanocytes. They found the melanocyte distribution could differ from the front to the back of the feather, and from the center to the outer edge. The patterns and colors could also change over time as the feather grew.The research team, led by Dr. C.M. Chuong of the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California and the National Taiwan University, looked at the processes involved in pigment formation in several species of birds, including chickens. They first mapped the progenitor cells in regenerating feather follicles, and found that during the growth phase the progenitors gave rise to both pigmented and apigmented melanocytes. During the resting phase the progenitor cells were quiescent.

Baby who died in hospital one of several with bacterial infection Updated

first_imgBy Evie AndreouA premature baby who died in the neonatal intensive care unit at the Makarios Hospital in Nicosia was a carrier of the acinetobacter bacteria that has also infected several other infants, the health ministry said in an announcement on Monday.The ministry, which said that the condition of the other infected infants is stable, did not specify whether the bacterial infection was the actual cause of death.According to the announcement, the baby, which was born at 25 weeks, had been in the ICU since birth and was supported by a ventilator because it was suffering from respiratory distress syndrome. At 12 days old, the baby’s condition deteriorated. Its haemoglobin levels fell and it went into a circulatory failure (shock). Around 12 hours later it died.“The baby died 12 hours after the start of the deterioration of its condition and pending further laboratory results and blood cultures, despite the efforts of doctors and the multifaceted treatment it received,” the announcement said.The lab tests indicated that the baby was carrying acinetobacter. The bacterial infection was detected after the baby’s death since it required 48 hours for the completion of the lab tests.In total, four newborns have been infected with the bacteria and have been confined in a separate area and given the required treatment.“The condition of the newborn babies is stable and there is no cause for concern,” the ministry said.The announcement said that all measures have been taken to contain the bacteria and containment measures were immediately taken by the medical staff.All new admissions to the ICU are being treated in a separate area, the announcement said.The head of the ICU, Christina Karaoli was quoted by state broadcaster CyBC as saying that very premature babies are susceptible to bacterial infections. She added that these babies are high risk, whether they suffer an infection or not.Acinetobacter infections are uncommon and occur almost exclusively in hospitalised patients. It is especially prevalent in intensive care units.The most vulnerable are patients who are on a ventilator, incubated and in those who have multiple intravenous lines or monitoring devices. It is often cultured from hospitalised patients’ sputum or respiratory secretions, wounds and urine. In a hospital setting, acinetobacter commonly colonises irrigating solutions and intravenous solutions.Several acinetobacter species can cause life-threatening infections. Such species also exhibit a relatively broad degree of antibiotic resistance.It poses very little risk to healthy people, but people who have weakened immune systems are more susceptible to the bacteria, which cause a variety of conditions, ranging from pneumonia to serious blood infections.According to studies, acinetobacter infections are not uncommon in preterm ICUs and there are reports of infant deaths in other countries.Both the health ministry and the hospital are closely monitoring the situation, the announcement said.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
