La Province recherche des partenaires pour stimuler lemploi

first_imgLe ministère du Travail et du Développement de la main-d’œuvre est à la recherche de partenaires pour soutenir le programme En marche vers l’emploi. Le programme En marche vers l’emploi est financé par le truchement de l’Entente Canada – Nouvelle-Écosse sur le marché du travail (EMT) et il aide les travailleurs néo-écossais peu spécialisés ou au chômage à développer leur employabilité, à se trouver un emploi et à le conserver. Le ministère a lancé un appel de propositions le vendredi 30 juillet auprès des organismes de charité, des organismes sans but lucratif et des établissements d’enseignement qui offrent ces services. La date limite de réception des propositions est le 7 septembre. « L’an dernier, notre ministère et nos partenaires ont fourni un large éventail de formations et de programmes d’emploi qui ont aidé plus de 2 000 Néo-Écossais dans leur recherche d’un emploi, a souligné la ministre du Travail et du Développement de la main-d’œuvre, Marilyn More. Nous remplissons notre engagement qui consiste à améliorer la vie des Néo-Écossais dans toutes les régions de la province. » Grâce à des programmes de formation financés par l’EMT l’an dernier, la Nouvelle-Écosse compte maintenant 75 aides en soins continus agréés de plus, ce qui comble une pénurie dans l’industrie et place des gens dans des carrières prisées. Des Afro-Néo-Écossais ont participé à un programme qui leur a donné accès à des occasions d’apprentissage, d’emploi et de formation postsecondaire dans le secteur de la construction. Le programme est conçu pour des gens qui ne sont pas admissibles à l’assurance-emploi et pour ceux qui n’ont pas de diplôme d’études secondaires. Le programme En marche vers l’emploi met un accent tout particulier sur le soutien aux groupes minoritaires, y compris les Autochtones, les Afro-Néo-Écossais, les personnes handicapées et les Néo-Écossais acadiens et francophones. Le programme cible également les jeunes, les femmes, les bénéficiaires de l’aide au revenu, les nouveaux entrants et les rentrants sur le marché du travail, et les personnes qui étaient auparavant travailleurs autonomes. Le financement provient de l’Entente Canada – Nouvelle-Écosse sur le marché du travail, signée en 2008.

Ottawa says it met human rights tribunals Jordans Principle deadline

first_imgThe tribunal’s order gave the federal Indigenous Affairs department two weeks to implement Jordan’s Principle. The deadline was Tuesday.Jordan’s Principle basically requires the government to provide the health care First Nation children need before sorting out which jurisdiction, whether federal or provincial, is responsible for paying.Tarlton’s letter said Indigenous Affairs and Health Canada have written the provinces and territories to begin “jurisdictional discussions related to Jordan’s Principle.”Cindy Blackstock, president of the First Nation Child and Family Caring Society, said she found Tarlton’s letter “vague” but needed more time to fully analyze the content and whether it met the spirit and intent of the tribunal’s ruling.“There is no mention of a transparent process for reviewing prior and current cases given Canada’s history of 100 per cent refusal of Jordan’s Principle cases,” said Blackstock, in an email.Ottawa now faces another deadline in two weeks set by the tribunal on overhauling the on-reserve child welfare system. In its updated order, the tribunal said Indigenous Affairs needed to provide a “comprehensive report” that would include budget allocations for First Nation child welfare agencies, detailed calculations of those budgets and adjustments from the tribunal’s January decision, along with implementation timelines.The tribunal also said it would “supervise the implementation of its orders by way of regular detailed reports” from Indigenous Affairs.January’s tribunal decision marked a resounding victory for Blackstock who first launched the human rights complaint, with the Assembly of First Nations, in APTN National NewsThe federal government said Tuesday it met a deadline set by the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal on implementing “Jordan’s Principle” on jurisdictional disputes involving the health care of First Nation children.Ottawa said it was now expanding Jordan’s Principle to not only include jurisdictional disputes with the provinces but also between federal departments, according to a letter to the tribunal from Justice Canada lawyer Jonathan Tarlton dated Tuesday. Tarlton fought to have the case dismissed while under the Harper government.Tarlton’s letter also said Jordan’s Principle now covers all First Nations children on reserve, not just those with multiple disabilities.“Canada is committed to the health and safety of First Nations children and will continue to take concrete action on this urgent and key priority,” said Tarlton, in the letter.The federal human rights tribunal released an “update order” late last month in a follow-up to its landmark January ruling on First Nation child welfare services. In its update, the tribunal said Ottawa was moving too slowly implementing improvements outlined in the ruling which found the federal government discriminated against First Nation children by underfunding on-reserve child welfare services.Read the government’s letter to the Tribunal here. Download (PDF, Unknown)last_img read more

UNHRC refuses to stop screening of video

In his letter, President Henczel has observed that “the participation and consultation with the observers of the Human Rights Council, including INGOs, is based on arrangements, including Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) resolution 1996/31 of 25 July 1996, and practices observed by the Commission on Human Rights (rule 7 of the Council‘s Rules of Procedure)”. He further notes that “NGOs in consultative status with ECOSOC have the right to organize side events”, and that “a large number of such meetings take place in the margins of the session and they do not reflect an official position of the Council”. He said this in response to a protest lodged by the Permanent Representative of Sri Lanka to the UN Ambassador Ravinatha Aryasinha last Monday, which was followed up with a meeting on Tuesday. He however adds that “the organizers of side events take full responsibility for the content of their events”.Sri Lanka on Monday lodged a formal protest against the screening of the latest Channel 4 film. In his letter addressed to Ambassador Remigiusz Achilles Henczel, President of the Human Rights Council, Ambassador Aryasinha had obsereved that “Sri Lanka views this film, as well as the timing of its broadcast as part of a cynical, concerted and orchestrated campaign that is strategically driven, and clearly motivated by collateral political considerations”.  (Colombo Gazette) The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) has refused to stop the screening of the Channel 4 film “No Fire Zone: The Killing Fields of Sri Lanka” organized by Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International and FIFDH to be held at the UN premises in Geneva tomorrow.The President of the UN Human Rights Council Ambassador Remigiusz A. Henczel has however observed that allowing the screening of the video in the premises while the UNHRC is meeting in another room will not reflect an official position of the Council. read more

Security Council stresses importance of protecting civilians in armed conflict

The aide memoire adopted at this morning’s meeting as part of an ongoing series of discussions by the Council on the issue, was prepared in conjunction with the UN Secretariat and was welcomed by the UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, Kenzo Oshima. In a statement read out at an open meeting by Ambassador Ole Peter Kolby of Norway, the Council’s current president, the 15-member body also stressed the need, when considering ways to protect civilians in armed conflict, “to proceed on a case-by-case basis, taking into account the particular circumstances.” Briefing the Council prior to the adoption of the statement, Mr. Oshima said the aide memoire could “serve as a quick and easy reference guide for Council members when developing a peacekeeping mandate” and commended the unprecedented cooperation in developing the document. Mr. Oshima also stressed that it was important that decisive and timely action was taken to end the suffering of millions of innocent victims of warfare, including women and children. As examples, the Under-Secretary-General drew attention to the Middle East, where the escalation of violence has resulted in many civilian casualties over the past few days alone, and the Sudan, where “we have collectively been dismayed by the recent pattern of attacks on civilians, humanitarian workers and facilities.” As for Angola, where more than a third of the population – some 4.6 million people – have been displaced by conflict, Mr. Oshima described the Government’s declaration on Wednesday of a ceasefire as “ground-breaking news.” Mr. Oshima also noted the recent allegations of sexual exploitation of children in refugee camps in West Africa, and the measures the UN system was taking to deal with the matter while the investigation by the UN Office of Internal Oversight Services continued. “While these problems and situations, among others, continue to demand our most pressing attention, it is important not to lose sight of the progress that has been made in enhancing the protection of civilians in recent years – both by the Council and the international community more widely, including numerous NGOs [non-governmental organizations],” he said.Video – Security Council meeting read more

British Olympic silver medallist Germaine Mason killed in motorcycle accident

first_img GERMAINE MASON, the Jamaican-born British high jumper who took a silver medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, died today in a motorcycle crash near Kingston.34-year-old Mason was killed in an early morning mishap when he lost control of his motorcycle as he drove toward Kingston and died at the scene.“Our sincere condolences to the entire sporting fraternity,” tweeted Jamaican prime minister Andrew Holness.Mason began competing for Britain in 2006 having taken bronze for Jamaica at the 2004 world indoors, silver at the 2000 world juniors in Chile and bronze at the 2002 world juniors in Kingston.“Germaine was an outstanding athlete and a truly lovely man,” said Fuzz Caan, a senior high jump coach at British Athletics who worked with Mason during his time as Olympic champion. “He had a wry sense of humour and was a pleasure to be around.He was a great ambassador of British high jumping. It is an honour for us to have him as part of our sporting history.”Mason, still the Jamaican national record holder in the event, matched his personal best of 2.34m to claim silver at Beijing, one of a then-record 47 British Olympic medals taken in China.“The whole of the British Olympic Aassociation is incredibly sad to hear of the passing of Germaine Mason,” said BOA chief executive Bill Sweeney.“Germaine was a great athlete, an Olympian and a silver medal-winning part of Team GB who made history at Beijing 2008.

Data on insurance costs from industry could be knowingly misrepresenting full picture

first_imgData on insurance costs from industry could be knowingly misrepresenting ‘full picture’, Doherty claims The official CSO stats say the cost of insurance is going down but that isn’t being felt by many on the ground, Pearse Doherty has claimed. THE WAY OFFICIAL CSO stats on the cost of car insurance are compiled leaves it “open to the industry to knowingly present certain figures that may not reflect the full picture”, Sinn Féin’s Pearse Doherty has claimed. CSO stats say that the cost of premiums has fallen in the last few years, but that isn’t being felt by many customers, Doherty said. The government is yet to implement many of the recommendations from the Cost of Insurance Working Group it set up – such as dedicated garda unit to tackle insurance fraud. The opposition claims the public is being left out of pocket because of this inaction, with the official stats provided not reflected on the ground. CSO figuresAccording to most recent Consumer Price Index for January, the average cost of motor insurance had fallen six points in the previous 12 months.In a recent parliamentary question, Doherty asked the Taoiseach the way in which the CSO acquires data on the price of motor insurance.In reply, Varadkar said that to compile that particular index as part of the overall Consumer Price Index, the CSO collects data on premiums from a sample of insurance companies.“The sample covers approximately two-thirds of the motor insurance premiums written in the market,” he said.  Saturday 2 Mar 2019, 12:05 AM 54 Comments The insurance companies are requested to supply price quotations for defined customer profiles for both new and existing customers. This request is made monthly via email from a member of the CSO’s CPI team directly to a representative of each of the insurance companies in the sample. As with all companies contacted directly for information used in the compilation of the CPI, the CSO team members identify themselves.The Taoiseach added that the CSO keeps the profiles regularly updated so they can continue to be representative of the market, collating characteristics such as model and age of the car, and the sex, age, location and occupation of the insured person.Doherty said that a “more detailed and robust way of checking the actual prices is warranted given that the public continue to report large increases”.For example, a survey of 4,000 motorists from the AA last year found that 56% of those polled said they’d seen a significant increase in their car insurance at the time of renewal. This dataset, however, would be smaller than that available to the CSO. The Sinn Féin finance spokesperson said he questioned whether the insurance industry could be relied upon to provide “straight up data” when approached officially by the CSO and asked its prices.“The CSO approach is fine for the price of milk or nappies – or most products – but insurance is a notoriously difficult product to price which varies widely from person to person and place to place seemingly without rhyme or reason,” Doherty said.“Through an FOI request I have obtained documentation which shows an industry commissioned report actually disputes the CSO’s figures of a large increase arguing that in fact prices only increased by 22% between 2011 and 2016.At the very least, Ministers quoting these figures should be more circumspect given their ultimate source is the insurers themselves.Reacting to Doherty’s claims, a spokesperson for Insurance Ireland told that it has “always accepted the veracity of the CSO process and considers its data to be indicative of market conditions”.“This was a view shared by Deputy Doherty when he relied on the index in Dáil contributions when premium levels were increasing,” the spokesperson said.The report Deputy Doherty refers to was supplied to the Government’s Cost of Insurance Working Group by Insurance Ireland and it stated that it is not correct to directly compare the increases it found in premium levels (22%) with the CSO index. The purpose of this comment in the report was to avoid inaccurate interpretations such as those put forward by Deputy Doherty. By Sean Murray The spokesperson added that “systemic reform” is needed to address the “volatility of claims” which helps to drive the cost of premiums upwards for some drivers.“We want to see greater urgency in the pace of reform to tackle the costs all policyholders pay,” the Insurance Ireland spokesperson added. Cost of awardsOn a repeated basis, the level of compensation payouts for injuries sustained in road collisions has been cited as a chief cause in the high cost of premiums in Ireland.A report from the Personal Injuries Commission last September found that the average claim for soft tissue injuries in Ireland was €19,862 – over four times higher than the average in the UKSpeaking to last year, insurers told us that the cost of paying out these claims out, as well as the expectation that some people have regarding the payout they may receive.Insurance Ireland CEO Kevin Thomson said: “It’s fair to say that we’re at a new norm, in terms of the cost of insurance out there. If we want to tackle it, it’s the cost of awards we need to look at.”In one recent case that took place in Dublin, a young driver now fears his premium could skyrocket after being involved in a minor crash where the driver of the other car has now claimed an injury.John* told that it was during morning rush hour when he drove into the back of another car at a relatively low speed.“It really was only a tip,” he said. “It was a busy city centre street at rush hour, you’re not going to be going that fast.”He said that none of the occupants of either of the cars reported injuries at the scene, but the driver of the other car subsequently submitted a claim.John said: “And my insurance company just said they’d pay him out straight away. I think the photos show how little the impact was.That’s my no-claims gone now, and my insurance is up for renewal in the summer. As a young driver, my premium was high anyway. But depending on how high it goes it might force me off the road.In regards to injury payouts, there may be some move from government in this regard, with Minister for Justice Charlie Flanagan last month asking the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Frank Clarke for help in efforts to bring down the size of compensation awards.The Alliance for Insurance Reform called it a “welcome development” after “months of frustration at the pace of reform on insurance costs”. Its spokesperson Peter Boland said: “Insurers can’t have it both ways – if the volume and quantum of awards are the problem then reform must be matched with cuts to premiums. What we have not seen from insurers is a commitment to cut premiums if necessary reforms are made.  A tangible commitment on premium cuts would provide an additional impetus on the government to act.*Names have been changed at the person’s request.

Green Mountain Hockinson Woodland levies pass

first_imgArea voters overwhelmingly supported levy-renewal proposals for the Green Mountain, Hockinson and Woodland school districts during Tuesday’s special election, according to unofficial results from Clark and Cowlitz counties.Elsewhere, voters in Skamania County passed the first-ever levy in the Stevenson-Carson School District.Levies are taxes assessed on property owners to help pay for daily maintenance, operations of schools and other programs not paid for by the state or federal governments . Levies require 50 percent plus one vote to pass.

The operating levy received 1,221 “yes” votes, or 60.42 percent, as opposed to 800 “no” votes, or 39.58 percent.The technology and school improve-ments levy was contingent on the operations levy passing.

Beauty and Comfort can coexist together

first_imgWhile taking a stroll down the curated love garden at his new store and losing yourself to the strains of Shehnai and Hindustani classical music from Benaras Gharana, you step into the world of Sabyasachi Mukherjee. The ace designer was recently in the national Capital when Millennium Post caught up with him at his newly opened flagship store.What’s your take on the fashion scenario in the Indian Society?We Indians are gradually crawling back into our own sensibilities. Every nationality has a regional standard for beauty whether they are Japanese, Chinese or African. But we Indians, almost always scrounge standards from the west. Most Indian men admire the feminine and curvaceous side of women. However, the way women perceive beauty in society is very different. I wonder sometimes who women actually dress-up for apart from themselves as I feel that women dress-up in their quest for supremacy. With each passing era, Indian Fashion has been witnessing a rapid growth. In fact, the shift in fashion and trends every six months is quite evident. The economic perspective in the global scenario is yet another influence that has altered Indian fashion. International brands entering the Indian market and being sold at economic prices is promoting the growth of brand awareness in India in a big way.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’As we live in curated times, what role does personal style and individualism stand on?You know, I’ve always felt that beauty and comfort can co-exist together and style is about a woman who is 5’1 and wears flats to a fancy party. There’s a lot of dignity and grace in accepting who you are. Gradually I feel the importance of big brands will go away, giving a chance to the smaller brands which are going to help people create their own style. My lifetime muse is Frida Kahlo. She was phenomenally dynamic because she embraced who she was. She walked with a limp, unapologetic about her beauty, her illness, her uni-brow, everything. When I see a woman too obsessed with fashion I know she is a girl in trouble. A Sabyasachi woman believes in consistency and repetition. Look at Rekha, she wears stunning Kanchwipurams all the time, so much so that when you think of Kanchipurams, you only think of Rekha. I think that is iconism. Whether it’s Chanel-black and white or the personal styles of Audrey Hepburn, Frida Kahlo and Jackie Kennedy, all of them lived through consistency and repetition. Trendy is young, it’s boring, frivolous and fragile. Trendy is high-maintenance. You would want someone trendy as a onetime lover, not a lifetime partner. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixWhat’s the biggest fashion faux pas according to you?The biggest fashion blooper is not being able to dress your age. The Indian change in attire has also managed to target the clothing for ‘plus size’ where the demand is remarkable. The market for plus size is gaining importance and the demand is growing day by day. This could be possibly the off-shoot from changes in diet, a plausible excuse in the form of the opening of more and more burger bars, pizza houses and other joints from the West.  The variety in the wardrobe rises swiftly from this increasing urbanisation. The country today is witnessing a rapid growth in many sectors thus bringing in the need to dress well and appear presentable and being real. Everything is perfect and digitised. We shy away from imperfection and we hardly get any time to reflect. My clothing wants you to do that – know the traditional India from the bygone era, know about the textile, where it came from, how was it  manufactured…. Until and unless the product does not make you inquisitive enough about yourself, I think it is a failed product.How much importance do you pay to technology advancements in fabrics, prints and craftsmanship?You can’t really move forward without technology. But having said that how much of it you use is also a very pertinent question. Today you can’t really move forward without respecting what the past gave you. It has to be an amalgamation of your past and present. In today’s market there is a big overdose of technology in everything – from the food we eat, to the products we use, to the music we hear. Somewhere down the line, what people are missing is a little rustiness of the things from the non-technical world. My design philosophy stands for personalised imperfection of the human hand. When I look at a woman who is just too beautiful, she almost is mechanised to me. So I like some flaws and freckles here and there to add to the beauty of the woman. Similarly, I like textiles and embroidery to have a little bit of character and age in them. I think men and women really start looking beautiful after 40. When you look into their eyes, you see the world through them.Tell us about your source of inspiration?I am a very sensory person. My source of inspiration has always been people, travelling, books and even the food that I eat. Whatever appeals to my senses, inspires me; and it can also be a perfume! The brand Sabyasachi’s design aesthetic has always been of romantic opulence, the kind that lacks sympathy for ‘modernity’ of the rib-crunching kind, of minds and bodies that obsess with faddish trends. In fact, my traditional decorative styles with swathes of handcrafted textiles, antique embroideries and rich tapestry of colours, is almost entirely for the bridal market. I am always focusing on asymmetry, unevenness and the gray scale of achromatic colours. I promote neither outrageous style nor provocative dressing.last_img read more

We have taken specific care to include artists who have connections with Kolkata including Samit Das, Paula Sengupta and Neerja Kothari and maintain conversation between their works and the other artists who are part of the show.” The theme of the exhibition asks questions on the nature of art, and its function in our every day life, with artists as chroniclers of our memories. “In fact Paula’s work deals with her mother’s memory, her struggle with cancer and about a year-long log of day to day events.

Try to book a room in advance for as many night as you plan to stay. Otherwise, you may find yourself in a bit of a jam – and not the fun kind.

The feeling defies description. No matter what instruments the musicians play, they take a rhythm and key and weave music out of the ether. They compose as they go. They feel their way through chords, inventing, with each passing beat, a stretch of music that has never quite existed before, and may never again.The fifth annual Jungle Jam plays this week at Hotel DoceLunes in Jacó, and it’s more than just a music festival: It’s a chance for Costa Ricans and world travelers to get together and appreciate the improvisational art form. The nation has its share of concerts and music festivals, but Jungle Jam has become one of the biggest and most exciting. This year’s edition will feature 25 bands, as well as DJs from such far-flung locations as the United States, Jamaica, and Australia.With each successive year, Jungle Jam has drawn a more diverse body of musicians. One of the headliners, California-based Slightly Stoopid, is returning to Jacó, where they will perform their easygoing funk-reggae oeuvre. New on the scene is Washington, D.C.-based Thievery Corporation, an 18-piece ensemble that incorporates DJ mixes, traditional instruments, and live vocals. The collective is famous for its psychedelic, experimental sound, and they have shared stages with the likes of Paul McCartney, David Byrne (of Talking Heads) and Wayne Coyne (of The Flaming Lips).
