Name Change Fees Waived for Residential School Survivors Family Members

first_imgGovernment is making it easier for Residential School survivors and their families to reclaim their birth name. For many Indigenous children entering residential schools, the process of removing their cultural identities began by replacing aboriginal names with Euro-Canadian names. Beginning July 9, name change fees will be waived for residential school survivors and their families who want to reclaim names that were changed by the residential school system. “Some children lost their names and part of their identity the moment they entered these schools,” said Premier Stephen McNeil, Minister responsible for Aboriginal Affairs. “Waiving these fees will make it easier for residential school survivors to reclaim their birth name, and I am hopeful it can be another step in the healing process.” Once the legal change of name is complete, fees to change a name on a driver’s licence and a government issued photo ID will also be waived. There is no fee to update a Health Card. The province is making the changes in response to a Calls to Action by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. The commission called upon governments to waive administrative costs for five years to allow residential school survivors and their families to reclaim names that were changed by the residential school system. Currently, the fee to change a name is $165.70 and an additional $24.95 for each family member. The fee for a long form birth certificate is $39.90. The fees will be waived for five years until July 2024.last_img read more

Nike Oakley distance themselves from Olympian Oscar Pistorius after murder charge

Nike, Oakley distance themselves from Olympian Oscar Pistorius after murder charge AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Joshua Freed, The Associated Press Posted Feb 18, 2013 10:29 pm MDT Two major sponsors, Oakley and Nike, distanced themselves from Olympic athlete Oscar Pistorius on Monday after the South African sports star was charged with murder in the shooting death of his girlfriend.Oakley, the eyewear maker, suspended its contract with Pistorius. And Nike, which sells shoes and other athletic gear, said it has no plans to use him in future ad campaigns.Pistorius lost both of his legs in childhood. Racing on carbon-fiber blades, he was the first amputee athlete to run at the world championships in 2011, and he made history competing in the London Olympics last year. His success at overcoming hardship made him popular with South Africans, and a desirable pitchman for advertisers.On Thursday, he was arrested and charged with shooting his girlfriend to death in his home in South Africa. His family has denied that he murdered his girlfriend, the model Reeva Steenkamp.Pistorius’ agent has cancelled the athlete’s future scheduled races.Nike Inc. confirmed to The Associated Press on Monday that it had no plans to use Pistorius in future campaigns. Nike spokesman KeJuan Wilkins declined to say whether Nike had previously had any plans for Pistorius, or whether it will remove current advertising that includes him.A 2007 Nike Internet ad showing Pistorius starting to sprint in his blades with the caption: “I am the bullet in the chamber” had already been pulled.Wilkins said the wording in the 2007 campaign “was in reference to Oscar’s speed and performance on the track. Nike felt it was appropriate to take the ad down from Oscar’s website recognizing the sensitivities of the situation.”Later on Monday, Oakley, in an emailed statement, said that “in light of the recent allegations, Oakley is suspending its contract with Oscar Pistorius, effective immediately.” The California company, a unit of Italian glasses and sunglasses maker Luxottica Group, has been associated with Pistorius since 2009, according to the athlete’s website.Pistorius’ website, which has been posting statements from his manager and his family, still shows other Nike ads, as well as logos from Nike, Oakley and other companies.Beaverton, Ore.-based Nike, which spent $800 million on endorsements in its last fiscal year, has found itself in tricky situations with athletes before. It dropped Lance Armstrong in October 2012 after charges of widespread doping on his cycling teams. Armstrong has since admitted to doping and has been stripped of his seven Tour de France victories, and was also dropped by other sponsors.But Nike stood by golfer Tiger Woods after he admitted to infidelities and went to rehab for sex addiction, and restarted a relationship with football player Michael Vick once he had served time for illegal dog-fighting. read more

US factory production rebounded in September

US factory production rebounded in September by Christopher S. Rugaber, The Associated Press Posted Oct 17, 2016 7:19 am MDT Last Updated Oct 17, 2016 at 10:20 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email WASHINGTON – U.S. manufacturers boosted output modestly last month, led by greater production of construction supplies, autos and petroleum products.The Federal Reserve said Monday that factory production rose 0.2 per cent in September, following a decline of 0.5 per cent in the previous month. The broader industrial production category, which includes mining and utilities, ticked up 0.1 per cent.Even with the gain, manufacturing output has been flat in the past year. Factories have been hit by several factors: weak business spending on machinery and other equipment, a strong dollar that has made U.S. goods more expensive overseas, and sharp cutbacks in oil and gas drilling that has lowered demand for pipeline.Mining output rose 0.4 per cent last month, though it has fallen 9.4 per cent in the past year. Utility production fell 1 per cent.With manufacturing production weak in the past year, factories have shed 47,000 jobs.Other reports suggest there is some hope that factories are slowly recovering. A private survey found that manufacturers boosted production and saw a rise in new orders last month, according to the Institute for Supply Management, a trade group.With new orders rising, production may increase in the coming months. Still, that survey found that factories were still cutting jobs.And orders for manufactured goods increased in August, according to a separate report from the Commerce Department. A category that tracks business investment rose for the third straight month, a sign that business spending may be rebounding.The weakness in manufacturing has weighed on the broader economy, which grew at a sluggish pace of 1.1 per cent in the first half of this year. Still, many economists expect a mild acceleration in the second half of the year to roughly 2 per cent. read more

Nationalist worldview is recipe for more conflict less prosperity Germany tells UN

. “A world view which puts one’s own national interests first and is no longer engaged in a balancing of interests between the nations and countries of this world is gaining ever more ground,” Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel told the Assembly’s 72nd annual general debate. “National egoism is worthless as a regulatory principle for our world! For this world view describes the world as an arena, a kind of battleground, in which everyone is fighting against everyone else and in which everyone has to assert their own interests, either alone or in alliances of convenience. “In this world view, the law of the strongest prevails, not the strength of the law. Ladies and gentlemen, I am convinced that we have to rise against this world view. We need moreinternational cooperation and less national egoism, not the other way round,” he declared. The motto ‘our country first’ not only leads to more national confrontations and lessprosperity. In the end, there will only be losers,” he added. “In international cooperation, no one loses sovereignty. Rather we all gain new sovereignty which we could no longer have as nation-states on our own in today’s world.”Turning to individual world crises, Mr. Gabriel stressed that international community had made clear it will not accept the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s (DPRK) nuclear provocations, and called for using all diplomatic means to defuse the situation and find a long-term solution. He cited the international agreement curbing Iran’s nuclear programme as a way out of an impasse, provided all terms are rigorously adhered to. Full statement available here read more

Column Ugandas antigay law… what can you do

first_imgFRIDAY 20th OF DECEMBER felt more like a 13th for many Ugandans. The country has finally passed its notorious anti-gay bill. The bill makes it a crime to be gay, to ‘promote homosexuality’ and not to report someone who is gay to the authorities. So far so very 1930s Germany . After years of fear instilling promises to codify the death penalty for being gay, the evangelical Christian backed, state sponsored holocaust has been somewhat tempered down to a severe jail sentence of up to 18 years. This giant step backwards for Uganda is a giant step backwards for all of humankind.David Behati, the Member of Parliament who first proposed the private members’ bill, may not have had his blood lust satiated but the passed bill is still one of the most anti-human laws in the world. Prime Minister Amama Mbabzi opposed the bill and as yet president Museveni has not yet ratified it. The death knell is yet to toll. The only hope for Uganda’s gay, lesbian, transgender and queer communities, as well as their families and friends, is a massive outcry from the rest of the world.What can we do? The threat of withholding development aid is one of the most powerful tools that we have at our disposals. For all the problems international development aid agencies are plagued with they do sometimes get it right. Sometimes they even do what’s right. I urge everyone to write to our government and demand that all aid to Uganda is suspended if president Museveni signs this bill into place.Human rights are universalIt is unconscionable that such an abhorrent sentence be imposed on anyone who dares to be themselves and dares to love who they want to love. Ethnocentric worries about imposing Western moral belief systems fall out the window when human rights come into play. Respect for humanity is not the sole preserve of Western minds. Gay rights are human rights. Human rights are universal.To those who say that withholding aid from Uganda will only punish those who need it most, I do see your reasoning but I believe it is flawed. It is true that those who need aid most in Uganda are not served sufficiently by their government. There are millions of people in Uganda dependent on international development through no fault of their own. The West owes a huge debt to the Ugandan people for years of colonial and post-colonial exploitation. Their extreme poverty has its roots in our historical and present day lust for Africa’s wealth. This needs to be addressed, acknowledged and rectified – but sacrificing and ignoring the rights of LGBTQ Ugandans, their families, friends and communities is not the way to go about it.The bloated Ugandan political class and their evangelical puppet masters respond to one thing and one thing only: money. If they see aid being withdrawn from their country they just might decide that this divide and conquer strategy is not the best way to line their bank accounts. The threat of ceasing aid from the United States and the United Kingdom has worked in the past to delay the bill until now. Ireland currently doesn’t send aid directly to the government, due to misappropriation of funds in the past, but we do support other aid programmes in the country. Sadly it would seem that the best hand to play is the threat of withholding all aid until the Ugandan president is forced to shoot down this most abhorrent law.Time is running out for Uganda’s LGBTQ communities and their families and friends. Until it does there is a still a little hope left. Please take a moment to stand up for the rights of the millions of people whose lives will be destroyed if president Museveni does toll the death knell. Write to your TD, your senators, Irish Aid, our president. If you care about human rights then write to whomever you think might have a little influence and tell them what you think. Just maybe they will do what’s right if enough of us implore them to.Paul O’Keeffe is a Research Fellow at La Sapienza University of Rome.

What if the Starship Enterprise fought the Death Star over San Francisco

first_imgImagine a twisted world where the Empire ruled earth instead of the Starfleet-filled future we’ve been promised. Is this the nightmare JJ Abrams has every night, or just a fun video in celebration of Star Trek Into Darkness?Whether it’s a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away or deep into our own future, it’s kind of hard not to imagine what it would be like to live in a Star Trek or Star Wars kind of universe. In fact, a common pastime of fans who enjoy these two sci-fi juggernauts is to pit them against one another in an imaginary galactic struggle. The conversations are always the same when it comes to the ships, though. Star Trek vessels have advanced shields and weaponry, despite being much smaller than some of the colossal craft from Star Wars. What if things were a little different, and the Enterprise wasn’t coming home to the hero’s welcome it is so richly accustomed to in San Francisco?Our friends at IGN have been busy suiting up in their finest Stormtrooper armor to put together a video in which the Empire seems to govern Earth as we know it. Out of nowhere, a unique vessel appears over San Francisco with shield technology unlike anything that has ever been encountered before. The vessel is immediately determined hostile, even after speculation that this craft was the Japanese Whaling vessel Kobiyashi Maru. It doesn’t take long for someone to fire upon the craft, but it seems like the only thing that will penetrate those shields is that moon-like orbital defense platform floating above.While this new video is certain to spark a whole new series of arguments about Star Trek and Star Wars, it’s an impressive fan tribute to both of these beacons of science fiction.last_img read more

Colin Conor McGregor is our Ali

first_imgIt appears that Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather are finally close to agreeing on the financial terms of their mega fight that’s been stuck in the rumor mill for the past year.Colin thinks the fight itself will be a disaster, but the event will sell record numbers of Pay Per Views because the public always watches interesting and compelling stories.While Mayweather has been vocal that he’s the top draw on the card, Colin couldn’t disagree more. He doesn’t think guys whose most compelling personality characteristic is their bank account are interesting.Floyd Mayweather’s all about money. How many people do you know that wear sign on their hats that are fascinating. Floyd Mayweather is not a fascinating personality.” Colin sees McGregor as the most compelling personality in the either fight game right now, and it’s not even close. In terms of interest in the potential fight, it’s McGregor who will be the draw for fans, even though he’s probably going to get dismantled in the fight.Colin thinks McGregor’s brash outspoken nature and savant-like fight promotional ability make him this generation’s ‘Greatest’ fight personality.“Conor McGregor is our Ali.”Floyd Mayweather needs this fight, and Conor McGregor. He wouldn’t be going through this whole dance if he had another fight on the horizon that anyone gave a damn about watching.There isn’t one.This is the game.

Obama Rousseff try to put spy scandal behind them

(AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais, File) Rather than rehash the spying controversy, officials from both countries say the leaders want to delve into talks on trade, investment and climate change.“They are putting behind the Edward Snowden affair,” said Michael Shifter, president of the Inter-American Dialogue, a Washington think tank. “The meeting is to create good atmosphere, a good mood, establish communication and get the relationship back on solid footing.”Upon Rousseff’s arrival at the White House, Obama took her on a tour to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial. Obama described the “Stone of Hope” into which King’s statue is carved and pointed out some of King’s famous quotes along the memorial wall.The leaders reunited Monday evening over a dinner of grilled lamb, spinach salad and coconut banana cake, the White House said.

Environment Minister Izabella Teixeira, who is traveling with Rousseff to Washington, has said that developed nations bear more responsibility than the developing world because of their emissions track record.Brazil’s first female president started her second term in January — Vice President Joe Biden attended her inauguration — but she since has been weighed down by low approval ratings, her country’s poor economic performance and a massive corruption scandal involving Petrobras, a state-owned oil company. Tens of thousands of Brazilians filled streets across the country earlier this year to protest her leadership.Snowden’s disclosures showed that in addition to spying on Rousseff’s communications, the NSA had hacked the oil company’s computer network. Rousseff served on the company’s board but has not been implicated in the scandal. WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama and Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff will aim to show they have smoothed over tensions sparked by a spying scandal, as they open two days of talks at the White House Monday.The meetings come nearly two years after Rousseff canceled a rare state visit to Washington following revelations that Brazil was a target of American spy programs. The disclosures by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden deeply strained relations between the two hemispheric powers. With Brazil bracing for recession, officials are emphasizing the economic agenda for the Obama-Rousseff meeting. The U.S. is Brazil’s second-largest trading partner after China, exchanging $62 billion in trade flows. The U.S. announced Monday that it will allow imports of fresh beef from 14 states in Brazil, which the South American nation had long sought.Carlos Eduardo de Freitas, an economist and former Central Bank executive director, said the White House meeting may invigorate Brazil as it seeks to reduce government spending to avoid being shunned in credit markets. Rousseff is traveling with 11 cabinet members and met with Brazilian businessmen and U.S. investment fund managers and government officials in New York to discuss infrastructure before arriving in Washington.“The government needs to unshackle its economy,” Freitas said.The timing of Rousseff’s trip was settled months ago; Obama announced it when the two met on the sidelines of a summit in Panama in April. But for Rousseff, being seen warmly received by an American president coming off one of the best weeks of his time in office could help her back home.Obama rejoiced last week after the nation’s highest court upheld a key aspect of his sweeping health care law and granted gay couples the right to marry nationwide. Congress also cleared legislation critical to his ambitious trade agenda, measures that days earlier were given up for dead.
