Status of Womens Action Plan inflated Aboriginal Affairs violence prevention project spending

first_imgBy Jorge BarreraAPTN National NewsWhen it released its “Action Plan” to fight violence against Indigenous women, the Harper government inflated by $24.5 million the amount of money Aboriginal Affairs planned to spend on reserve-based family violence prevention projects.Status of Women’s “Action Plan,” released Sept. 15 claimed Aboriginal Affairs planned to spend $66.2 million over five years beginning in 2015 on “violence prevention activities” under its Family Violence Prevention Program (FVPP).Aboriginal Affairs, however, said over the weekend it was spending $41.7 million over five years on violence prevention projects under FVPP.The difference between the Action Plan figures and Aboriginal Affairs’ numbers is $24.5 million.It’s unclear how Status of Women and Aboriginal Affairs arrived at different totals when both were talking about the same FVPP program money.The FVPP program is getting $31.74 million a year beginning in 2015. It received a $1.34 million increase over the previous five years. This money is being transferred from a similar program previously housed under Canadian Heritage.It appears Status of Women and Aboriginal Affairs divided the total differently.The FVPP program is divided between funding for shelter services and violence prevention programs.Status of Women’s Action Plan numbers also differ from Aboriginal Affairs’ figures on shelter funding.The Action Plan states that, under the FVPP, shelters in 41 First Nation communities would get $18.5 million a year, beginning in 2015.Aboriginal Affairs, however, said shelters would get $23 million a year under the program, with about $3.5 million of the total going to reimburse provinces and territories for shelter services.Aboriginal Affairs released its figures over the weekend in a response to an APTN National News story published Friday that reported the Action Plan’s figures showed a cut to 41 First Nation shelters.Aboriginal Affairs said there would be no cut and shelter funding would remain the same.APTN National News contacted Status of Women Minister Kellie Leitch’s spokesperson to get clarity on the numbers on Friday. The minister’s office bounced the question to media relations office for Employment and Social Development Canada. The department then bounced the question to Aboriginal Affairs.Aboriginal Affairs initially responded to APTN National News’ query Saturday, but, as of this article’s posting, had not answered additional questions on the discrepancy between how Status of Women divided FVPP’s funding versus how Aboriginal Affairs sliced the funding pie.Liberal MP and Aboriginal affairs critic Carolyn Bennett said the Harper government is playing a “shell game” moving money between departments to create the perception it’s dealing with the issue while faced with persistent calls for a national inquiry.“Regardless of the government’s desperate and confused backtracking on the apparent shelter cuts, it is clear that on-reserve shelters are already critically underfunded and maintaining the same 2010 funding is a completely inadequate response to this epidemic of violence,” said Bennett.The NDP on Monday again pressed the government to call a national inquiry. Cree MP Romeo Saganash led the opposition charge.Status of Women Minister Kellie Leitch reiterated the government was acting on the issue through its Action Plan.Last Friday the NDP, who outnumbered the Conservatives in the House, triggered a debate on the need for a public inquiry into the high number of missing and murdered Indigenous women.Saganash delivered an elegant and emotional speech about the need to hold an inquiry so the families of the missing can get some sense of closure. Saganash used his own mother as an example of how important closure is for those who do not know where their loved ones lie. Saganash said his brother Jonish died in residential school when he was only five years old in 1954. Saganash’s mother did not know where he was buried until 40 years later, when the little boy’s grave was discovered by his sister.“It is only by coincidence, one day, that one of my sisters happened to be in the area and someone told her, ‘I know where your little brother is buried.’ After 40 years, my sister filmed the site where he was buried and brought the film back to my mom to show her,” said Saganash. “I do not know if any of the members have seen their mother cry, but I saw my mother cry many times, but the day she saw that video, I had never seen her cry that way. That was closure. That is what we call closure. That is the closest she could get to final closure for her son. That is what Indigenous families in this country need.That is what they want. That is why they are calling for this national inquiry.”The Conservative MPs across the floor where unmoved and the parliamentary secretary for status of women questioned whether Saganash supported the need to break intergenerational cycles of violence.“Does he not think that addressing underlying causes of violence through structured training initiatives are important?” said Status of Women parliamentary secretary Susan Truppe.Saganash said in response that no plan would work without first understanding the root causesjbarrera@aptn.ca@JorgeBarreralast_img read more

More Sri Lankans arrive from Australia

People returned involuntarily do not have access to reintegration assistance. This latest group takes to 232 the number of Sri Lankans returned involuntarily since 13 August, the High Commission said. Another group of Sri Lankan men were sent home from Christmas Island in Australia today, the Australian High Commission in Colombo said.This is the sixth involuntary removal to take place in the last week and was made up of 32 Sri Lankan men, all recent arrivals from a number of different boats. Without a valid visa they had no legal right to remain in Australia and were removed at the earliest opportunity.“The message is clear that people who pay smugglers are risking their lives and throwing their money away. There is no visa awaiting them on arrival, there is no speedy outcome, and no special treatment,” the High Commission quoted Australian Minister for Immigration and Citizenship Chris Bowen. The men were advised of their status and that they were subject to removal from Australia. They raised no issues that engaged Australia’s international obligations. The Government will continue to return people where they do not engage Australia’s international obligations.“We are committed to breaking the people smuggling trade and preventing people from taking these dangerous boats to Australia. And we will continue to regularly transfer people to Nauru and shortly to Manus Island,” he said.Since 13 August, 324 Sri Lankans have returned home – both voluntarily and involuntarily – as people realise that these smugglers only sell lies and false promises about what awaits people in Australia. read more

Silent emergency in South Sudan as protracted conflict displaces millions of cattle

The ongoing fighting has caused the displacement of millions of animals, leading to fresh outbreaks of disease and rising tensions between pastoral groups and farmers, as well as within different pastoralist communities. “From the earliest days of the crisis, FAO has done its utmost to draw attention to the silent emergency that these unusual livestock migrations represent,” Sue Lautze, FAO Representative to South Sudan said in a statement to the press. Both herders and farmers face a rising threat of armed conflict, the FAO warned. Farmers have cut the amount of land they are planting by as much as 40 per cent in areas such as Renk County, and the prices of basic staple foods are as much as four times higher in the most conflict-affected areas. The Organization along with its partners is leading efforts to combat disease outbreaks and maintain the animal health care system. In recent months, teams of FAO livestock experts have traversed South Sudan, conducting dozens of assessments, disease investigations and monitoring missions. The Organization is also boosting its operations in the country by expanding the community-based animal health network and vaccination programme, deploying staff to lead and support disease surveillance efforts, and helping to re-establish local laboratories for livestock disease diagnosis.For 2015, FAO is seeking $89 million to improve the food security of 2.35 million vulnerable people in South Sudan while further expanding its development efforts.Working with host communities and pastoralists, FAO’s teams have flagged worrying new animal disease patterns, intensifying violence over access to land for grazing and worsening livestock conditions. As animals have been moved, diseases have spread to previously uninfected areas. Diseases like East Coast Fever, foot-and-mouth disease and trypanosomiasis devastate cattle production and threaten the food security and livelihoods of pastoral communities across the country. FAO also announced today that it is implementing a new milk voucher scheme for nutritionally at risk families. Declines in milk production and the loss of cattle to disease increase the risk of malnutrition, particularly among children and pregnant and breastfeeding women who rely on milk as an essential part of their diet. For most herders, the loss of cattle means the loss of their entire livelihood. In 2014, FAO’s humanitarian programme in the country reached over 2.8 million people through a combination of crop production, fisheries and animal health interventions, including vaccinating over 1.6 million animals. read more

CARICOM heads to discuss free movement for Haitians – Grenada objects

(Jamaica Gleaner) CARICOM’s Office of the General Counsel has produced two legal opinions defending the right of Haitians to move freely within CARICOM. Currently, Haitians need a visa to enter CARICOM territories, except Barbados, which abolished the requirement last month.The matter has been receiving attention from some member states, according to CARICOM’s secretary general, but Grenada contends that Haitians do not have such entitlement based on issues surrounding the Revised Treaty of Chaguaramas (RTC).“There will be a discussion on Haitian nationals and whether a visa is required for them to enter the Community, that discussion will take place. That was a mandate from the last meeting of heads of government,” said Ambassador Irwin LaRocque, secretary general of CARICOM, on Monday at a press briefing in New Kingston. The 39th summit for the heads of government runs from July 4 to 6 in Montego Bay, St James.“Based on the law set out in (Shanique) Myrie v The State of Barbados, and on the fact that the Republic of Haiti is a party to the Revised Treaty, and in the absence of a reservation by Haiti excluding participation in the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME), it was advised that Haitian nationals, as Community nationals, are entitled to an automatic stay of six months,” the Office of the General Counsel argued.It also pointed out that the heads of government in 2007 decided that all CARICOM nationals should be allowed automatic entry, in a push to enhance their sense of belonging and community. Entry would be denied if citizens were deemed undesirable and if they were likely to be a burden on the public purse.Grenada disagreed with the position regarding Haiti during a meeting of the Council for Trade and Economic Development in May and provided member states with a legal opinion.“Haiti did not participate in the negotiation of the RTC, is not a signatory state of the RTC, and so is not listed in Article 3 of the RTC. Haiti, therefore, could neither have signed nor ratified the RTC,” Grenada asserted.The Office of the General Counsel rebuffed that claim, stating that Haiti lawfully signed and ratified the RTC. It continued, “Haiti, as a party to the original treaty/first version of the treaty, was entitled on the basis of Article 40(3) of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties to become a party to the Revised Treaty/amended or revised version of the treaty.” Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)RelatedCivil Society presents petition to CARICOM Leaders on DR Court RulingNovember 27, 2013In “Regional”Letter: State sponsored Human trafficking in Guyana?June 14, 2018In “Letters”Presidents of Cuba, Chile to join CARICOM Heads at 39th meetingJuly 2, 2018In “latest news” read more

LG Optimus G combines quad core chip and a 47inch display

first_imgLG just couldn’t contain its excitement and has spilled the beans on the Optimus G ahead of IFA 2012, which kicks off on Friday. It’s understandable that LG had a hard time keeping its finger off the publish button — the Optimus G is an absolute beast of a smartphone, and it could do wonders for elevating LG’s stature in the Android arena.The Optimus G gets the ball rolling in a hurry with Qualcomm’s APQ8064 processor, a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro clocked at 1.5GHz — and the generous 2GB of RAM will provide plenty of operational elbow room. The SoC also features an Adreno 320 GPU, and that combination should put its benchmark scores right up there with the big boys. Previous tests from Qualcomm show the chip comfortably besting the HTC One X and Galaxy S3, and its Sunscript score undercut the competition by nearly 25%.Its big performance will go nicely with its big screen: the Optimus G features a 4.7-inch, 1280 x 768 LG G2 Touch Hybrid gapless display. LG has also equipped the Optimus G for external viewing for those times when five inches isn’t nearly big enough, with Dual Screen Dual Play mirroring and “live zoom” for videos. Power will be provided by a 2100mAh battery — also produced by LG — which is reportedly good for a whopping 800 charge cycles.Rounding out the Optimus G’s spec sheet are 1.3MP front- and 13MP rear-facing cameras (no hump necessary on this one), Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, an MHL port, and 32GB of internal storage. The Optimus G will also be the first quad core smartphone to feature LTE support. And while the Optimus LG is big and bad in some respects, it’s not in others: it’s just 8.45mm thin and it weighs just 30 grams more than the iPhone 4S %displayPrice% at %seller% .NTT Docomo customers will get first crack at the Optimus G, and they’ll have their choice of white and red in the coming months. We’ll have to wait for the official word on a global rollout, but it’s hard to imagine LG not wanting to get this smartphone on retail shelves in as many countries as possible.More at Engadget and LGlast_img read more

How Serial inspired The Guilty a stunning thriller coming to Hulu

first_img 0 Tags 77 Photos The Guilty is easily one of the best thrillers in recent years — and it all takes place in just one room.Streaming on Hulu in the US starting Feb. 28, the award-winning detective story stars Jakob Cedergren as a suspended cop stuck answering emergency calls. Hiding guilty secrets of his own, he’s electrified by a call from a woman who’s been kidnapped. The cop must find her, with just one obstacle: He’s stuck in the single room of the cramped dispatch center with just his phone and computer. And we’re stuck there with him.This might seem like a limitation. But in the hands of director Gustav Moller, who co-wrote the film with Emil Nygaard Albertsen, The Guilty’s confinement becomes its biggest strength. Think of it as Locke with a badge — or The Searchers with a cellphone. The Guity is a master class in tension and suspense, keeping you on the edge of your seat as it shrewdly reveals ever more nerve-racking twists through cunning writing and immersive sound. The Danish-language film, which has been showing in theaters internationally since last summer, is actually so good that it’s set to be remade in English with Jake Gyllenhaal in the lead.I sat down with Moller in the fall to find out how this precision-engineered thriller was inspired by Taxi Driver, Dog Day Afternoon and hit podcast Serial.Q: What’s the key ingredient in telling a story that’s so confined?Moller: If I could only mention one thing, I would say the whole idea was that you shouldn’t have that feeling when you watch the film. Physically you’re in one space but this detective is hunting all over Denmark through the phone and through the sound design, so the idea was to try to create these landscapes of sound — little stories in sound. The conversation he has, the whole idea was to bring the audience out of this room using their imagination, to create your own images.That was actually the original premise to me, because l got the idea when l studied a real 911 call. It felt like I saw this woman, and I saw the car that she was being abducted in. And you and me listening to the same call would see a different woman in a different car. I thought that was fascinating. How did you shoot the film? Was your star, Jacob Cedergren, really hearing those voices in his phone headset?Moller: The voice actors would actually call him. It was all done live — they were further down the hall with me. They would act out the scenes on the phone, and we would record the sound. We basically built this little theatre stage so If they were walking around in an abandoned house we kind of drew that up. We had a mock car they were sitting in. And we shot the whole film in 13 days, in chronological order from the first call on the first day to the last call on the last day.Jacob Cedergren is all ears in the gripping thriller The Guilty. Nikolaj Moeller The film starts in the brightly lit dispatcher’s office, but when the main character makes an important decision he goes into a side room and switches off the light. How did you show the character’s emotional journey through the visuals?Moller: Even though it’s set in one location, me and the director of photography wanted a cinematic journey in the way it’s shot and the way it’s lit. I saw it as a man falling deeper and deeper into his own darkness as the film gets darker and darker. I think it also helps the audience evoke stronger and stronger images, going back to the original premise of trying to make the audience create these images as the film gets more violent and more vivid. Making it darker and darker also was an attempt to kind of remove the police station around him. At the start of the film you have a lot of the dispatch center, but towards the end it’s basically only a character and darkness around him, and I think that helps the audience paint their own images.What other influences inspired you?Moller: One of our main influences writing the film was actually not a film — it was this podcast Serial, which is a true crime story told week by week. What I felt listening to Serial was for every episode of that show my images of these people and locations will change, because I’ll get new information about the suspect and the victim. That is something we deliberately tried to work with in the film.Al Pacino and John Cazale in Dog Day AfternoonJohn Cazale and Al Pacino in 1975 drama Dog Day Afternoon, another masterpiece of confined tension. Mondadori Portfolio With more cinematic references I would say that for me — in general, but also specifically with this film — we were very inspired by American ’70s cinema. Taxi Driver is a film we talked a lot about. In that film, the view of New York and the city feels very much that it comes from the main character’s perspective. We try to make the same thing in The Guilty, but his worldview is being presented through what’s audible.And then I would say Dog Day Afternoon by Sidney Lumet was a big reference for me in the way we shot the film. We started very long takes ranging from 5 to 35 minutes to put the actors in a real-time situation. We also worked with three cameras simultaneously. That was directly inspired by Dog Day Afternoon because I think that’s probably the most tense real-time feeling and acting I’ve ever seen. You feel the stress of the characters. You feel the sweat.The film is precisely structured — there are some big twists and reveals right at the midpoint of the movie, for example. When you were writing it, how did you map out the structure?Moller: Both me and my co-writer really like structure, and I think when you’re making a film that’s in some ways so experimental and challenging you kind of owe the audience to be inviting as well. So, while writing we were trying to challenge the audience and give them the experience of something they haven’t seen before, but also in a story that is very well-known, the cop going against the rules to try and save a person. I love structure because I think there’s a reason that three-act structure works. When you lay your script close to a structure, people have expectations, so if you break that structure, it will have a pretty great effect.First published, Nov. 1, 2018.Update, Feb. 5 at 10:55 a.m. PT: Adds the Hulu release date and details about an English-language remake.Movie Magic: The secrets behind the scenes of your favorite films and filmmakers.Technically Literate: Original works of short fiction with unique perspectives on tech, exclusively on CNET. 2019 movies to geek out over TV and Movies Share your voice Post a comment Filmmakerslast_img read more

Rogue GTA V mods are stealing your passwords

first_imgThere’s plenty of in-game criminal activity that goes on in Grand Theft Auto V, but as a few unlucky players have learned there are a few rogue mods out there that are being used to commit actual crimes.One of the great things about GTA V finally landing on PCs is that there are now loads of mods popping up that players can install to make things more interesting. There’s a downside to software that allows customization, though: when it’s as popular as GTA V is, cybercriminals are virtually guaranteed to be looking for a way to take advantage.So far, two thieving mods have been discovered by players over at GTAforums. First, there’s Angry Planes, which tweaks the game to unleash wave after wave of aircraft that are hell-bent on your destruction. The second is a mod called Noclip, which lets you pass through objects — so you can, for example, see what the inside of a UFO looks like.Trouble is, the mods installed more than just the files they needed to modify the game. They also brought with them a keylogger and password stealer, hiding them inside unsuspecting users’ %appdata% folders. If you downloaded either mod and happen to notice any of the evidence noted by GTA Forums — like a random, unnamed 0 byte archive hiding in your temp folder — then you should start changing all your passwords immediately.How the malware got into the mods remains a mystery for now. It could have been lurking inside from the get-go, or it may have been a man-in-the-middle attack that appended malicious code on the fly during the download process. Either way, the important thing at this point is to start cleaning up the mess if you had Angry Planes or Noclip installed… and exercise caution when you download any other GTA V mods in the future.last_img read more
