Pink Shirt Day marks 10year anniversary

first_imgWednesday marks Pink Shirt Day across the country.The anti-bullying movement first started ten years ago in Nova Scotia as two teens decided to stick up for a fellow student who was being picked on.Co-founder Travis Price says it’s hard to believe they’ve been doing this for as long as they have.“It’s motivational, it’s moving, it’s humbling. To know this is something I was part of starting so many years ago and here we are and we’re still doing it-it’s always hard to find words. It’s very hard not to be nostalgic all year and get emotional about how far we’ve come and how much we’ve grown, how much I’ve grown.”Price will be spending the day in the Vancouver area speaking to students, telling them it’s okay to talk about bullying, to show people it’s not acceptable.“We need to make sure that youth know that they’re protected everyday and that they’re going to safe and healthy environment’s be it at school or online,” he said.“It’s also a good time for parents to open up conversation, talk about things maybe they went through, maybe they’re going through something in the workplace. Bullying isn’t something that just happens in schools so I think it’s a great day to have a conversation.”Price says the cause is close to his heart.“From being a 17-year-old kid not really knowing much about bullying other than the fact of, you know, it happened to me and I didn’t want it to happen to others to now being viewed as one of the professionals in the country that, you know, works with bullying prevention, works with youth, works with families, I’m honoured and I’m humbled.”This year’s Pink Shirt Day theme is cyber bullying.last_img read more

Annan calls for comprehensive approach to multiple global disease threats

“[Those] threats to our biological safety, disparate as they may seem, are inter-connected. We have no choice but to address them all,” Mr. Annan said in New York on Thursday night as he received the 2005 Health and Human Rights Leadership Award from Doctors of the World (DOW).Part of the Médecins du Monde (MDM) International network, Doctors of the World mobilizes the health sector to promote and protect basic human rights and civil liberties for all people, in the United States and abroad. Mr. Annan, whose first UN job had been with the World Health Organization (WHO), was honoured for his “deep commitment to a healthy and peaceful future for all people.” This year’s event marked Doctors of the World-USA’s 15th anniversary. He said that addressing the global health challenges of the day meant recognizing that health was not exclusively a “development issue,” nor exclusively a “security issue.” The time had come, he said, to abandon traditional bureaucratic thinking and to work across ministries and departments to forge a holistic approach equal to such an all-encompassing challenge. “We must devote greater resources to disease surveillance and response,” he said, recalling that just last month the World Health Assembly had adopted newly revised International Health Regulations in a “bold and necessary” bid to improve global efforts to contain outbreaks. “Governments must devote greater attention and resources to building local and national capacities. Donors – if only out of self-interest – must work with developing countries and assist them,” said Mr. Annan.He also called for “new and serious” efforts to build health systems in developing countries. At the core of this challenge was the need to address the acute shortage of health workers in many of those nations. “We must also move away from the kind of health interventions that I would liken to peacekeeping without peace-building: human and essential, but all too often lacking the necessary longer-term effort to consolidate and make results sustainable,” the Secretary-General said. read more

(TSX:IFP.A) has signed a deal to buy the assets of Rayonier Inc.’s wood products business including three sawmills in Georgia for $80 million, its first such deal in the U.S. southeast.The Vancouver-based company said the mills in Baxley, Swainsboro and Eatonton have a combined annual capacity of 360 million board feet of southern pine dimension lumber.“We have been looking for an opportunity in the Southeast for some time and consider this is an ideal time to proceed,” Interfor president and chief executive Duncan Davies said in a statement.“We believe the operations and people involved will fit seamlessly into Interfor’s operating system and will make a significant contribution to our future success.”Under the deal, Interfor has also agreed to hire all of the group’s 260 employees.Rayonier owns, leases or manages more than one million hectares of timber and land in the United States and New Zealand as well as a business which produces specialty cellulose fibres.“Rayonier has enjoyed a long association with Interfor, supplying their lumber business in the Pacific Northwest for many years, and we look forward to expanding that relationship into the southeast,” Paul Boynton, chairman, president and CEO of Rayonier.The agreement will increase Interfor’s total annual capacity to more than two billion board feet.Interfor said the transaction will be financed from its existing credit lines.The deal comes as the U.S. housing market is starting to show signs of recovery.

Mens basketball Ohio State Athletics Director Gene Smith on NCAAs commission to

Ohio State Athletic Director Gene Smith stands on the field prior to the Buckeyes’ season-opening 49-21 win over Indiana on Aug. 31 in Bloomington, Indiana. Credit: Colin Hass-Hill | Sports EditorOhio State Athletics Director Gene Smith will be a part of the NCAA’s Commission on College Basketball, a 14-member committee tasked with “examining critical aspects of a system that clearly is not working,” NCAA president Mark Emmert said in a statement Wednesday.The creation of the commission comes on the heels of an FBI investigation that led to federal corruption charges against four college basketball assistant coaches. Ohio State hasn’t bee implicated in any wrongdoing.“I am privileged and honored to serve alongside such a distinguished group committed to making the great game of college basketball even better for all parties involved,” Smith said in a statement.Smith, who also joined the College Football Playoff selection committee this fall, is one of two current athletic directors on the commission, which is chaired by former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. The other is Hofstra’s Jeffrey Hathaway.“The recent news of a federal investigation into fraud in college basketball made it very clear the NCAA needs to make substantive changes to the way we operate, and do so quickly,” Emmert said in a release.“While I believe the vast majority of coaches follow the rules, the culture of silence in college basketball enables bad actors, and we need them out of the game,” he added. “We must take decisive action. This is not a time for half-measures or incremental change.”The commission, which will first convene in November, will focus on three main areas. The first is “the relationship of the NCAA national office, member institutions, student-athletes and coaches with outside entities,” according to the release. Those outside entities include apparel companies, agents and AAU basketball.The FBI investigation revealed that Adidas made back-channel payments to at least three players in exchange for those players committing to Adidas-sponsored schools. James Gatto, the company’s director of global marketing, was arrested on three charges, including wire fraud.The commission’s second area of concern is the relationship between the NCAA and the NBA, particularly on what can be done to address the proliferation of “one-and-done” players in college basketball, which is due in part to the NBA’s draft-eligibility requirements.Thirdly, the commission will work on “creating the right relationship between the universities and colleges of the NCAA and its national office to promote transparency and accountability.”The commission’s recommended solutions will be presented to the NCAA Board of Governors and the Division I Board of Directors at their April meetings.“We need to do right by student-athletes,” Emmert said. “I believe we can — and we must — find a way to protect the integrity of college sports by addressing both sides of the coin: fairness and opportunity for college athletes, coupled with the enforcement capability to hold accountable those who undermine the standards of our community.”Updated on Oct. 11, 2017, 4:51 p.m. with Smith’s statement. read more

Teenage sisters deserve medals for rescuing man and fouryearold child with beach

A helicopter taking a Man and a child to hospital after sisters Isla Noble, 15, and Eilidh, 14, used a lilo to rescue them in water off the north east coast of Scotland Eilidh added: “He had taken in a lot of water and was blue. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Two teenage sisters have been hailed as “heroes” after they saved a man and his four-year-old son from drowning using a lilo.Isla and Eilidh Noble were swimming at at the Waters of Philorth, near Fraserburgh in Aberdeenshire, at around 5.30pm on Monday evening when they heard cries for help.The pair spotted a man struggling in the water with a young boy on his shoulders on Monday evening and sprang into action.Isla, 15, jumped into the water with a lilo and hauled the four-year-old on to the float, while passer-by Keith Gray swam out to help pull them to shore.Eilidh, 14, remained on the beach and raised the alarm with the emergency services, before researching the recovery position online. An air ambulance was scrambled to the scene, while RNLI Fraserburgh also attended.The man, who was “blue” when he was pulled from the water, regained consciousness on the beach and was flown to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary as a precaution.He managed to thank the girls for saving him and his son before being taken to hospital. The RNLI said their quick thinking “made all the difference” and they “deserve medals.” It is believed the man had been on holiday in Fraserburgh with his family, who were at another part of the beach.An RNLI spokesman said: “The girls, for being so young and springing into action and having the presence of mind to phone the coastguard and calmly give them the details of the incident, enabled the emergency services including ourselves to respond and arrive so quickly.”Make no mistake their presence and actions today made all the difference. They all deserve medals.” “We’d called the coastguard and an air ambulance landed right in front of us at the beach. I don’t think what happened has really sunk in yet.”While the teenagers and Mr Gray had been pulling the man to shore, a passing nurse, Sophie Ross, stopped to help.The 27-year-old said: “He was slipping in and out of consciousness and I was worried about secondary drowning, which is when someone is rescued from the water- but still has water in their lungs.“If that man had been in the water just 40 or so seconds longer, he would have fallen unconscious. The girls were so brave and did a brilliant job – I don’t know if I could have done that.“They definitely saved two people’s lives tonight.” Some of the rescue teams and emegency services who responded so quickly when sisters Isla Noble, 15, and Eilidh, 14, used a lilo to rescue a man and child in water off the north east coast of Scotland She said: “We were just out paddling with our lilo and we saw a man and toddler out, and they were deeper than us.”We thought the toddler started screaming but we thought the dad was just dunking him under as a laugh and he was getting cold – but then the dad starting shouting ‘help’.””I went out with the lilo to go try take him back in while Eilidh went and got the phone that we had in the bag that we had on the beach.”We couldn’t stand because we (were) out too deep so I tried to put the toddler on the lilo and then as I pulled the toddler up the dad came up a wee bit as well, so I made sure that his head was out the water.”Then I tried to swim back in but I could only use one arm because I was holding onto the lilo with the other one. I tried to kick my legs… I was going but I wasn’t going very fast.”Luckily there was another man, Keith, he had seen what was happening and he was already halfway in the water by this point – so he came and swam out and grabbed the other side of the lilo and we both managed to take them in.” Speaking on BBC’s Good Morning Scotland radio programme, Isla said their parents were proud the sisters managed to make quick decisions and get the pair out of the water in time without panicking. A massive well done to these two young sisters Isla and Eilidh Noble, who rescued a man and a child from the sea yesterday afternoon at Waters of Philorth near Fraserburgh. #TuesdayMotivation— RNLI (@RNLI) August 27, 2019 A helicopter taking a Man and a child to hospital after sisters Isla Noble, 15, and Eilidh, 14, used a lilo to rescue them in water off the north east coast of ScotlandCredit:RNLI Some of the rescue teams and emegency services who responded so quickly when sisters Isla Noble, 15, and Eilidh, 14, used a lilo to rescue a man and child in water off the north east coast of ScotlandCredit:PA read more

Windows 8 ARM not for business

first_imgAmidst the fanfare of MWC 2012 and the launch of the Windows 8 Consumer Preview, came news on the ARM front: Qualcomm and Nvidia were both starting to ship test units to interested developers. Then came a twist: according to ZDNet, Windows 8 on ARM devices won’t be able to join Active Directory domains.People are already raising questions about whether or not Metro apps have a place in the enterprise, and complain about the fact that there’s no way to run legacy x86 or x64 apps on Windows 8 ARM devices. Now there’s another big, additional asterisk for business users who might have been pondering a sexy Snapdragon S4 or Tegra 3 quad-powered device.In some ways, this decision makes plenty of sense. If Microsoft did allow ARM devices to join Windows domains, their users would certainly expect to be able to run all the same apps they can on their traditional Windows desktops — which we already know isn’t going to happen. But Windows 8 ARM devices will ship with Remote Desktop installed, and users will be able to access HyperV machines — or their own physical desktops — and start Terminal Services sessions where they can run all those apps remotely anyways.In other ways, however, it doesn’t make any sense at all. When Microsoft showed off Windows 8 ARM devices at CES 2011, there was a lot of emphasis placed on the fact that these systems were PCs — and they could do all the things “normal” PCs could do. They could run Microsoft Office. They could install peripherals like keyboards, mice, and printers. They could print. These are all things you’d require if you were planning to use Windows 8 at the office.Things are further confused by the fact that you can set up Exchange accounts in the new Metro mail app, and you’ll still be able to map a connection to a network share using your Active Directory credentials…So why not let these machines actually join a domain?Steve Ballmer said ages ago that Windows 8 is going to be Microsoft’s “riskiest bet yet,” and I think we’re starting to see why.More at ZD Netlast_img read more

This Lego Women Of Nasa Set Will Sell Out In A Hurry

first_imgStay on target Hands-On: Lego Hidden Side Packs Plenty of Spooky AR FunThe New Lego UCS Imperial Star Destroyer Is Nearly Four Feet Long It was a tough round of reviews for the most recent batch of 10,000 vote-getters over at Lego Ideas. So far, only a single set has been approved, but it’s a good one: the Lego Women of NASA!Commemorated in the set are astronauts Sally Ride (the first American woman in space) and Mae Jemison (the first African-American woman in space). Joining them are computer scientist Margaret Hamilton, “mother of Hubble” Nancy Grace Roman, and mathematician and physicist Katherine Johnson.In addition to the minifig version of these pioneering women, the Lego Women Of Nasa set also includes everything you need to display them proudly. There’s a backdrop with each woman’s name printed on a tile and four detailed little vignettes that let you add some context.Ride and Jemison can stand proudly next to a scale model of the Space Shuttle and Roman next to the HST. Margaret Hamilton can code away at her computer. Johnson holds the famous issue of the New York Times that followed the Apollo launch she helped make possible.One thing that Lego has guaranteed by choosing to produce this set: they’re going to have another Ideas sellout on their hands. The Research Institute was an incredibly hot seller — and it didn’t feature famous faces or a NASA logo. You’ll have to get your orders in quickly once Lego puts this one on sale!One more thing to watch for: not all the other submissions have been rejected yet. Lego is still reviewing the amazing Voltron set that we shared with you last March… so it could still happen! It’s a much larger set and requires licensing, which likely explains the extended review process.last_img read more

Morgan Stanley launches nearsite workplace nursery benefit for London and Glasgow staff

first_imgInvestment banking organisation Morgan Stanley has introduced a near-site workplace nursery benefit for 5,000 employees based at Canary Wharf, London and 1,000 staff in Glasgow.The new family-friendly benefit, provided by Bright Horizons, was launched in August 2018 as part of a broader wellness strategy that aims to support Morgan Stanley’s 56,000 global employees and their families, both in and out of the workplace. This includes helping to support working parents when they return after having a child.The new benefit enables parents to apply for nursery places at childcare facilities at Canada Square and Columbus Courtyard in London, near to Morgan Stanley’s Canary Wharf office, and at Spectrum Early Learning and Childcare in Glasgow, located close to its operating site there.Available for all Morgan Stanley employees via the firm’s salary sacrifice scheme, the workplace nursery benefit is for children aged between three months and five years. The nurseries are typically open between 7.30am and 6.30pm each working day.Parents are able to visit their child at any point during the day to take them out for a walk or spend time with them in dedicated breastfeeding rooms and soft play zones. The near-site workplace nurseries have facilities such as indoor playgrounds and climbing frames and toddler-sized cookery stations. Meals and snacks are cooked on-site, with menus checked by external nutritionists to ensure they fulfil the Voluntary Food and Drink Guidelines set in England and Scotland.The workplace nurseries benefit was launched to employees using an email campaign. This included communications that reminded staff about the firm’s existing family-friendly benefits.Tamsin Rowe, head of human resources, Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) at Morgan Stanley, said: “Morgan Stanley is a leading advocate for family-friendly workplaces and is strongly committed to supporting working parents through a variety of programmes. We are delighted to offer another resource to enable our employees to better balance work and family.”last_img read more

Skagway official sentenced to 12 months and a day in prison

first_imgA Skagway Borough Assembly member and businessman convicted of failing to file his income taxes is being ordered to spend just over a year in prison.Listen nowDan Henry (Photo courtesy The Skagway News)Dan Henry, operator of the Skagway Fish Co., will spend a year on supervised release after he gets out. He must repay $600,064 to the federal government for unpaid income taxes. Henry, 61, was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Juneau on Monday on four misdemeanor charges of willful failure to file income tax returns. The charges are only for Henry’s conduct between 2009 and 2012, although prosecutors say he admitted to relevant conduct dating back to 2004.In a written statement to the court, Henry blamed heavy drinking for gambling away all of the money he set aside for the 2005 season’s start of the Skagway Fish Co. and subsequent payment of taxes. He wrote that he put off filing his income tax returns as he repeatedly returned to Las Vegas with the hope of winning his money back. But the losses simply compounded over the years. He said alcoholism led to his dismissal from early jobs at the Chicago Board of Trade and a DUI conviction.Henry also wrote that he worked hard, long hours to build up the restaurant over the years. But there is no one else to replace him and fill his multiple roles at the business. He ends his letter by apologizing for his conduct and acknowledging that he must make restitution as soon as possible.Last February, Henry pleaded guilty as part of an agreement reached between prosecutors and his attorney over nearly two years of negotiations.Defense attorney Robert Bundy had asked that Henry be sentenced to eight months in prison while prosecutors wanted him to spend two years behind bars and pay a $50,000 fine. Bundy also noted Henry’s 15 years of service with the Skagway City Council and Skagway Borough Assembly that included the position of Finance Committee chairman. Other community members also submitted statements and a video of support noting Henry’s community involvement on education, senior and veterans issues.Assistant U.S. Attorney Jack Schmidt noted in a sentencing memorandum that Henry “was not overly sophisticated in avoiding his tax responsibilities,” but he did file fraudulent financial disclosure reports with the Alaska Public Offices Commission that claimed no self-employment income over $1,000 for 2010 to 2012. His case with the commission is still open. Schmidt also noted that Henry received checks and deposits that were structured in order to hide his income.U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Burgess on Monday ordered Henry to a year in prison for each of three charges to be served concurrently. For the fourth charge, Henry will spend a day in prison to be served consecutively to the other terms.Henry must report to a federal prison facility by Nov. 1.  His current term on the Skagway Borough Assembly ends in October 2017.last_img read more

Lakshmanpur Lakshminagar Dharashiv and of course Indraprastha And many more They shall all cease to have the same culture and ethos if they continue to be named as they are now: Ahmedabad Aurangabad Hyderabad Lucknow Muzaffarnagar Osmanabad and Delhi Astounding as this may sound this renaming spree shall not remain confined to streets towns and cities It will eventually extend to renaming the country In fact this has been included in the statement of objectives a quarter of a century ago — way back in January 1993 to be precise It was less than fifty days after the demolition of the Babri Masjid and despite LK Advani’s assertion of 6 December 1992 being the saddest day in his life there was all round elation within the Sangh Parivar This stemmed from several homilies of the saffron fold being accepted by people But most importantly the demolition catalysed the process of de-hyphenating religious minorities from the political process The challenge then was to carry this forward and how better to do this than altering the name of India “Rename India as Hindudesh” was the headline in Organiser the official organ of the Rashtriya Swayasmevak Sangh in the issue dated 24 January 1993 (Volume XLVI No 25) The article was penned by Jay Dubashi a respected financial journalist who had been in a leadership position in several leading mainstream magazines and papers Always identified as a person close to the Bharatiya Janata Party Dubashi was later a member of member of its national executive and a "kind of jack-of-all-trades but primarily an “expert” who looked after the party’s economic policies" Consequently anything that has been ever written by him must be taken seriously and not dismissed as a rant of a right-wing freethinker dwelling on the fringe of the saffron fold In this article Dubashi argued that the country needed a new name because India is "an English word not an Indian or Hindu word" He contended there was no further reasons "to identify" himself with "foreigners" But Dubashi posed if the name had to be changed what should we call the country Written in a conversational manner he wrote that Bharat was ruled out as the new name because the citizens would be called Bharatis and it "sounds like a surname not the name of a nationality" The attempt thus would be to "find a pucca Bharati word to describe ourselves and our country" The nationality of people should also carry weight and meaning He further wrote that for a long time India has also been referred as Hindustan and it is name often used by poets novelists politicians But Dubashi was "not happy with it either" The reason was simple: "There are too many ‘stans’ around us and they have an Islamic not Hindu connotation And what would be the term for a citizen of Hindustan A Hindustani like Hindustani music No I would rather have a term with a pure Hindu sound" Dubashi then went on to propose that the new name of the country must be Hindudesh This would ensure that the name of the nation was "distinct from the ‘stans’ around us particularly those with Islamic or Russian connotation" With India renamed Hindudesh the nationality of citizens would be Hindu and "this will solve many problems Since everybody will be a Hindu there can be no minorities for it is absurd to think that in Hindudesh there can be a Hindu majority and a Hindu minority" Renaming India as Hindudesh will serve a double purpose: "When everybody is a Hindu there can be no problems which arise only when you say that you are an Indian not a Hindu If you are an Indian you can be an Indian Muslim or a Muslim Indian But if you are a Hindu national you cannot be a Hindu Muslim or a Muslim Hindu" Everybody will be a Hindu and this will be stamped on their passports This effectively meant that whether the Muslims like it or not when they go for their annual Haj pilgrimage they will be identified as Hindus not just on their passports but also in the visas which the Saudi Arabian government will issue And if there is opposition Dubashi’s suggestion was ingenious: if critics did not appreciate being described as Hindus they "can lump it" because Hindudesh and the subsequent decision to call citizens Hindus will become a reality "sooner than he (the critic) thinks" It is true that for most in the saffron fold systematic study of history is not high on the priority list But the Organiser is the veritable Gospel Sooner or later someone will rediscover the virtues of Dubashi’s argument And then there will be a newsflash: India to be renamed Hindudesh Improbable Decide

download Indian Express App More Related NewsThis year’s Indian Premier League(IPL) is in serious trouble if the gist from the recent Mumbai meeting is of any indication Just weeks before the start of the tenth edition there is a very strong possibility of the event not being conducted as staging associations reeling under financial stress have expressed inability to initiate the process for conducting the matches A customary meeting of the IPL committee and the staging associations held in Mumbai on Tuesday threw up one startling detail: the staging associations were broke and unless the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) released funds urgently they said they would not be in a position to conduct IPL matches this year Each staging association gets a grant of Rs 60 lakh per IPL match Of this Rs 30 lakh comes from the IPL franchisee and an equal amount from the BCCI This money goes towards match and practice expenses which include floodlights ground preparation ground staff co-ordination etc Representative photo Image courtesy: IPL via Twitter The associations in the past would receive an advance from the BCCI and the rest of the money would flow in during the course of the event and later However the Supreme Court had last winter specifically ruled that no BCCI funds ought to be released to state associations unless they fell in line and adopted the Lodha Commission reforms The state associations had pleaded helplessness and said that unless the Supreme Court passed a judicial order outlawing the formation of the associations under the various acts —Registrar of Societies Act Company Act etc the associations on their own could not impinge on the rights of their members The court is yet to give a ruling on this appeal Meanwhile subsequent to the Court’s order not to release funds the Test ODI & T20I series against New Zealand England Bangladesh and Australia had to be gone through These were in jeopardy as state associations pleaded that they did not have the money to foot expenses The Supreme Court immediately granted relief stating that money could be released to State associations specifically for hosting the matches Nevertheless a huge sum of money is still outstanding and this has hit state associations very hard A Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA)source revealed that the BCCI owed them crores of rupees and this was badly affecting their cash flow “We’ll soon reach a stage where we won’t be able to conduct even junior-level domestic matches” he said In fact BCCI’s cash squeeze has hit all levels of cricket Last month the India under-19 players who were playing a series against England had to walk to a Railway canteen in Mumbai for breakfast as the squeeze on their allowance ensured that they could not afford to eat in the team hotel KSCA officials pointed out that the association regularly spends vast amounts of money for National Cricket Academy (NCA) matches If the Board failed to reimburse them soon they would not be able to support NCA this summer The summer months are crucial for training youngsters for it is during these months that activity at the academy would be at its peak A combination of a summer holidays throughout India along with cricketing off-season as well as Bengaluru’s ideal climate ensures that there is hectic NCA activity during summer months But this year that too may be hit badly “We met many of these expenses including payment to our Ranji Trophy players from our funds The Board is supposed to defray these expenses Normally they would have reimbursed us But that has not happened this season” they pointed out KSCA as indeed other cricket associations have not received their share of TV revenue Even the 50 percent infrastructure subsidy they were supposed to receive for the Sub-Air system (the new revolutionary American outfield drainage and aeration system costing Rs 4 crore) has not come in All these run up to a gigantic Rs 30 to 40 crore These accumulated accruals have hit all state cricket associations very hard They hold forth that they do not have the requisite money to set the ball rolling for the conduct of the IPL this season “Normally it would not have been an issue We’d have received the advance by now and entered into agreements made purchases and primed the ground dressing rooms floodlights and other aspects of IPL by now The Board would have paid us later “But these are not normal times Trust is broken and hence we don’t know if we’d be reimbursed at all Most of the associations are broke and cannot even meet advance requirements of service providers They simply will not take a chance by asking for goods and services on credit” they pointed out It is obvious that unless staging associations get instant financial relief this year’s IPL will be severely hampered if not abandoned altogether Washington: The next version of President Donald Trump’s travel ban could include new more tailored restrictions on travelers from additional countries The Department of Homeland Security has recommended the president impose the new targeted restrictions on foreign nationals from countries it says refuse to share sufficient information with the US or haven’t taken necessary security precautions The restrictions could vary by country officials said Trump’s ban on visitors from six Muslim-majority nations which sparked protests and a flurry of lawsuits was set to expire on Sunday 90 days after it took effect Acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke "has recommended actions that are tough and that are tailored including restrictions and enhanced screening for certain countries" Miles Taylor counselor to Duke told reporters on a conference call Friday Officials refused to say how many countries and which countries might be affected insisting the president had yet to make a final decision on how to proceed Trump huddled with Duke Attorney General Jeff Sessions Secretary of State Rex Tillerson his director of national intelligence and his national security advisor on Friday to discuss the issue White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters said Taylor said the recommendations were based on whether countries were providing US authorities with enough information to validate the identities of potential immigrants and visitors and to determine whether or not they posed a threat The recommendations were first reported by the Wall Street Journal on Friday Trump’s travel ban executive orders remain two of the most controversial actions of his administration The ban which went into effect in late June barred citizens of Iran Libya Somalia Sudan Syria and Yemen who lacked a "credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States" from entering the country The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear oral arguments on the constitutionality of the ban next month Officials described the process of reaching the new recommendations as far more deliberate and systematic than Trump’s original travel ban order which was signed just days after he took office with little consultation or input outside the White House File image of Donald Trump AP Homeland Security said it had worked with other agencies to develop a comprehensive new baseline for foreign nationals based on factors like whether their countries issued passports with biometric information to prevent fraud and shared information about travelers’ terror-related and criminal histories Taylor described what he said was "our guiding principle" "We need to know who is coming into our country We should be able to validate their identities and we should be able to confirm that our foreign partners do have information suggesting such individuals may represent a threat to the United States" he said The US then shared the new baseline requirements with every foreign government in July and gave them 50 days to comply While most countries already met the standards officials said that some that didn’t have made changes that put them in compliance Other countries however were unable or "deliberately unwilling" to comply Citizens of those countries would be denied entry or face other travel restrictions until their governments made changes Trump had originally tried to ban the entry of nationals from seven Muslim-majority countries including Iraq in his January order but scaled back his efforts in a more narrowly tailored version written to better withstand legal scrutiny in March Trump later derided that second order on Twitter as "watered down" and "politically correct" After a bomb partially exploded on a London subway last week Trump once again called for a tougher ban "The travel ban into the United States should be far larger tougher and more specific — but stupidly that would not be politically correct" he wrote on Twitter The administration has argued the ban was necessary to give it time to complete a thorough review of screening procedures and information sharing to make sure that those who enter the country don’t pose a safety risk Critics accuse the president of overstepping his authority and violating the Constitution’s protections against religious bias by targeting Muslims Trump had called for a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States" during his campaign The American Civil Liberties Union one of the groups challenging the ban in court described the proposed changes as "an apparent effort to paper over the original sin of the Muslim ban" "This looks to be the Trump administration’s third try to make good on an unconstitutional campaign promise to ban Muslims from the United States" ACLU Executive Director Anthony D Romero said in a statement A new travel policy could also complicate the Supreme Court’s review scheduled for argument on 10 October The court could order the parties to submit written arguments about what should happen next and it might dismiss the case or return it to lower courts for a fresh analysis of the changed circumstances Paris: Portugal will be relying on a drastic turnaround for superstar captain Cristiano Ronaldo to avoid an embarrassing early Euro 2016
