first_imgSince becoming Minister of Justice 18 months ago, many Nova Scotians have talked to me about the problem of youth crime. These are troubling situations, and rightly spark debate and discussion on how best to address youth-crime issues and ensure public safety. What we do know is that we need longer-term solutions to address the root causes of crime, and strong enforcement measures to protect citizens. Through the Minister’s Task Force on Safer Streets and Communities, Nova Scotians told us they need additional support and services to prevent and address crime in their neighbourhoods. That’s why we’re acting on the task force conclusions by bringing forward a provincial crime prevention and reduction strategy this fall. Our province has also invested in more enforcement, adding 250 new police officer positions over four years, including an initial allocation of 36 officers for Halifax Regional Municipality. We’ve also introduced a program to electronically supervise offenders in the community, and will be expanding it to include young offenders. There is no doubt that the introduction of the Youth Criminal Justice Act has resulted in more young people being released into the community, either as part of their sentence or while they wait for trial. While the act is working for the majority of young people in conflict with the law, we know it does not address the small number of out-of-control youth who are a danger to themselves and others. These youth need to be taken off the streets and away from negative influences to disrupt their pattern of behaviour. The Youth Criminal Justice Act is letting these youth down and failing to protect Nova Scotians. For the last three years, we have called on the federal government to make changes to the act, and the need for improvements was echoed by Commissioner Merlin Nunn in his report on the McEvoy inquiry. As a province, we have accepted and are implementing all of his recommendations, including developing a provincial youth strategy, and creating new youth-attendance-centre and bail-supervision programs in Halifax. At the same time, we continue to call on the federal government to follow Commissioner Nunn’s recommendations, and listen to Nova Scotians and other Canadians calling for changes to the Youth Criminal Justice Act. Changes that better protect the public and serve young people. I appreciate the leadership shown by the federal government in introducing new federal legislation to strengthen penalties under the Criminal Code, changes that will allow the courts and law enforcement to better deal with crime in our country. I encourage all Nova Scotians to call on their member of Parliament to support any legislation that will improve the safety of our communities. At the same time, we need action on the Youth Criminal Justice Act. We are fortunate in Nova Scotia to have some of the brightest, kindest and hardest-working young people anywhere. We need changes to the Youth Criminal Justice Act to ensure the very small number of youth who are a danger to themselves or others are dealt with appropriately and effectively. -30-last_img read more

first_imgLucknow: A day after the SP and the BSP decided to contest alone all 11 seats in the upcoming assembly bypolls, their third alliance partner in the recent Lok Sabha elections – RLD – Wednesday announced it too will go solo.Rashtriya Lok Dal UP president Masood Ahmad, however, expressed hope that the ‘gathbandhan’ remains intact. “The Rashtriya Lok Dal will contest the UP assembly bypolls on its own whenever they are held. However, it is too early to comment on the political scene of the state,” he told PTI. Also Read – Pak activated 20 terror camps & 20 launch pads along LoCParty chief Chaudhary Ajit Singh and Jayant Chaudhary will decide on the number of seats the party will contest and the matter may be discussed during a meeting in the next few days, Ahmad said. When asked about the RLD’s role in the new political landscape of the state, which sends the highest number of 80 MPs to the Lok Sabha, Ahmad said, “The RLD was with the Samajwadi Party. We got the seats from the quota of Akhilesh”. The UP RLD chief said the Congress should also be a part of the ‘gathbandhan’. Also Read – Two squadrons which participated in Balakot airstrike awarded citationsWhen asked who will gain from the recent spate of political developments, Ahmad said, “The profit and loss analysis will be done later. Our wish is that the gathbandhan should increase its ‘kunbaa’ (clan), so that we can emerge as a strong anti-BJP force”. The UP assembly bypolls will be important for the RLD as it has no representation in the UP Legislative Assembly. In the just concluded Lok Sabha elections, the RLD had contested from three constituencies, but faced defeat on all. RLD candidates Ajit Singh and his son Jayant Chaudhary lost from Muzaffarnagar and Baghpat Lok Sabha seats respectively, while Kunwar Narendra Singh lost from Mathura. In the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, RLD candidates had to forfeit their deposits in six of the eight Lok Sabha seats they contested from Uttar Pradesh. The party managed to poll only 0.86 per cent of total votes in the state.last_img read more

Donald Trump is fighting back after nine-time Golden Globe winner Meryl Streep took her moment on stage to call out the president-elect.While accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award for outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment, Streep delivered a six-minute long speech taking aim at Trump without even saying his name.Streep said she was particularly ‘stunned’ by one performance in 2015 where the president-elect appeared to mock a disabled reporter.“It sank its hook in my heart not because it was good. It was ‑‑ there was nothing good about it, but it was effective, and it did its job. It made its intended audience laugh and show their teeth. It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter, someone he outranked in privilege, power, and the capacity to fight back. It kind of broke my heart, and I saw it, and I still can’t get it out of my head because it wasn’t in a movie. It was real life. And this instinct to humiliate when it’s modeled by someone in the public platform by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life because it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing,” Streep said.Trump sent out a series of tweets Monday morning snapping back and calling the famed actress ‘overrated’.Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn’t know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes.

Ohio State’s track and field team will compete this weekend in the Big Ten Conference Championships in Bloomington, Ind. Events begin today and continue through Saturday and Sunday.The men’s track and field team is coming off of an impressive performance in the Billy Hayes Invitational, which was also held at Indiana University.Senior Elon Simms won the 400-meter hurdles event with the seventh-best time in the Big Ten season, 52.13 seconds. OSU had seven additional top-four placements in various events.Senior Jeff See, OSU’s top distance runner, said the team has a good shot at winning and he is looking forward to his races.See will be running the 1500-meter, which he has placed second and third in before, and the 5K, which he has not yet placed in.“I’m much fitter heading into championship season than I’ve been in the past, so hopefully that will be the difference maker,” he said. “I’m going into both races with the expectation of winning them. Top three is fine, but I don’t see any reason to count myself out of winning.”The women’s track and field team is also returning on a good note after 10 top-four placements in the 25th Jesse Owens Track Classic.Among these placements are two first-place finishes. Sophomore All-American Christina Manning clenched the 100-meter hurdles title, and Shaniqua McGinnis and Latoya Sanderson had a season-best performance in the 4×100-meter relay, also the third-best performance this season in the Big Ten.Junior sprinter and hurdler Letecia Wright said her team is prepared.“Everyone’s been keeping their focus on championships throughout the season,” Wright said. “Every week, people strive to improve their marks because they know championships are a battle and everyone is bringing their A-game.”While optimistic, Wright knows the competition will be no a walk in the park for herself and her teammates.“I think the biggest challenge we face is not getting lazy or too comfortable after doing so well in indoor season,” she said. “As a team, we have to keep the intensity in training and I think we’ve done a good job with that.”Wright will compete in the 100-meter hurdles, 100-meter dash, and 4×100-meter relay in Bloomington. Though she said she has done “alright” so far in her events, she hopes to push herself harder than ever.“I want to run fast and give 100 percent in all the events so I can get set up for regionals and nationals,” she said. “As a team, I think we can get in the top five if everyone competes the way we know they can compete.”With high hopes from all parts of the team, OSU will stay focused this week on its weekend championship goals.“We’ve really done all we can to make sure we’re ready and a lot of our guys are running great,” See said. “We need to use each other’s performances as momentum in our own events. If we can build off of each other, it’ll be hard to stop us.” read more

The Buckeyes are scheduled to play the Terrapins on Saturday at noon. OSU redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett (16) carries the ball during a game against Kent State Sept. 13. OSU won 66-0.Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorBefore Ohio State coach Urban Meyer spoke at his weekly Monday press conference, the Big Ten announced that redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett had been named the conference’s co-Freshman of the Week.Barrett’s award came after he threw for 330 yards and four touchdowns and gained 409 yards of total offense — the second best output in school history — in the win against Cincinnati on Saturday. Just four games into his career, he has already been named either Big Ten Freshman of the Week or co-Freshman of the Week three times, in addition to one Offensive Player of the Week award.While Meyer addressed Barrett’s development this season, he also took time to talk about the Buckeyes across the board as they come off the 50-28 win against the Bearcats.Meyer said he was “very pleased” with OSU’s offensive performance against Cincinnati.He said Barrett has been a strong “distributor” and the coaching staff is working to give him more responsibilities going forward.The champions on offense were: Senior wide receivers Devin Smith and Evan Spencer, redshirt-sophomore wide receiver Michael Thomas, redshirt-senior running back Rod Smith, Barrett, redshirt-junior tight end Nick Vannett and senior tight end Jeff Heuerman.Offensive players of the game were the entire offensive line and sophomore running back Ezekiel Elliott.The champions on defense were: sophomore defensive lineman Joey Bosa, senior defensive lineman Michael Bennett, junior linebacker Joshua Perry and junior cornerback Armani Reeves.Bosa was the defensive player of the game.Meyer said “the obvious concern is pass game” for his defense. The pass defense gave up 221 yards and three touchdowns to one Cincinnati player on Saturday.Meyer said there is a new “Thursday race” award, given to redshirt-sophomore running back Bri’onte Dunn this week for his work on kick coverage.Meyer said kick coverage will be a challenge against Maryland on Saturday. He called the Terrapin’s kick and punt returners some of the best in the Big Ten.He said he expects a “big time atmosphere” in College Park, Md., for the game.Meyer said the lapses in pass defense against Cincinnati were on the coaching staff as well as player execution.“We had four really bad plays that we have to get corrected,” Meyer said of the Buckeyes’ pass defense.He said the defense still “absolutely” has the potential to be a championship-caliber unit.Meyer said he was “really excited” to see the production OSU got from skill-position players against Cincinnati. The Buckeyes’ offense totaled 710 yards, with more than 300 yards both passing and rushing.The coach said the offensive line is picking up depth and improving four games into the season.He said he considers the OSU offense a “very good one, potentially a great one.”Meyer addressed a potential quarterback controversy next season between Barrett and senior Braxton Miller by saying: “Braxton is our quarterback.”Meyer said OSU had some fun with assistant strength and conditioning coach Anthony Schlegel after his takedown of a fan who rushed the field, but also had a serious conversation with him about potential consequences if something were to have happened to the fan.Meyer said the matchup with Maryland is another “big one” for his pass defense. read more

first_imgNew Delhi, Aug 15 (IANS) Asserting that single-use plastic is not good for the environment, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday urged the people and shopkeepers to eliminate the use of plastic bags completely. In his address to the nation from the ramparts of the Red Fort, Modi said single-use plastic poses grave threat to the environment. Also Read – Fresh restrictions imposed in Kashmir Valley Advertise With Us “Can we free India from single-use plastic? The time for implementing such an idea has come. Teams must be mobilised to work in this direction. A significant step must come out by October 2,” Modi said. Urging citizens too, to pitch in, Modi said it would be a good opportunity for the shop owners to advertise with their won cloth bags: “Shop owners and small entrepreneurs should start gifting their customers cloth bags with their branding and inculcate the good habit in the same stroke.” Also Read – Delhi court acquits former coal secretary H.C. Gupta Advertise With Us Asking the people to prefer digital transactions instead of cash transactions, Modi told the shopkeepers: “You already have a board outside your shops that reads: ‘Aaj nagad, kal udhar’. Similarly you can have a board saying ‘yes’ to digital payment and no to cash payment.” Emphasising on the requirement of simultaneous poll, the Prime Minister said: “Dream of one nation, one tax has been achieved by the implementation of the GST (Goods and Services Tax). Our nation has also successfully achieved One Nation, One Grid in the Power sector. Advertise With Us “Today, India is talking about One Nation, One Election. So a discussion must be held on this,” he said. The Prime Minister also urged the farmers to minimise the use of chemical-based fertilizers in their farmlands. Stressing on creation of wealth, Modi said: “Wealth creation is a great national service. Let us never see wealth creators with suspicion. Only when wealth is created, it will be distributed. “Wealth creation is absolutely essential. Those who create wealth are India’s wealth and we respect them,” Modi said. Discussing water conservation, Modi said, “The way in which citizens adopted the Swachh Bharat campaign, time has come to take up water conservation on the same lines. To save water we have to work four times harder and faster.” The Prime Minister also said that “every effort made to remove corruption and black money is welcome. These are the menaces that have ruined the country for the last 70 years. Let us reward honesty.”last_img read more

first_img“They get paid every Saturday, in cash. And every Christmas and Easter Holy Week, they go back to their villages in the altiplano,” Letona said. “We have a turnover of only 0.85 percent per month, and each harvest, nine out of 10 of our cortadores want to come back.”Not that they have much of a choice.Guatemala, with the highest proportion of indigenous people of any country in the Western Hemisphere, also ranks as one of Latin America’s poorest. Its 15 million inhabitants have been ravaged by civil war, and much of Guatemala’s wealth is concentrated in the hands of relatively few families – as was Cuba’s before the 1959 revolution that brought Fidel Castro to power.Under Guatemalan law, all workers have the right to form unions – as long as a minimum of 28 workers petition for one – but so far, only one of ASAZGUA’s member companies, Palo Gordo, is unionized.This is but only one factor that explains how Guatemala has become the largest sugar exporter in Central America and the third-most productive sugar producer in the world after Colombia and Swaziland.In the 2011-2012 harvest, Guatemala exported 1.65 million metric tons of sugar – more than Cuba’s entire sugar crop, and more than the sugar exports of El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Costa Rica and Panama combined.Guatemala now ranks as the world’s fourth largest sugar exporter, after Brazil, Thailand and Australia, according to the International Sugar Organization, while Cuba ranks seventh, just ahead of Colombia.But when it comes to productivity, Guatemala’s performance is even more impressive. In 2008, according to ASAZGUA figures, Colombia led the world in productivity, with 14.6 tons of sugar per hectare under cultivation, followed by tiny Swaziland (13.9) and then Guatemala (12.2).The next nine countries, in descending rank for productivity, were Australia, Sudan, China, Brazil, Mexico, United States, India, Thailand and South Africa. Cuba wasn’t even on the chart.In 2012, sugar exports to the United States, Canada, South Korea, Mexico, Chile, China, Taiwan, Bangladesh and other customers generated $843.7 million in foreign exchange for Guatemala and employed 350,000 people, 73,000 of them directly. That ranks just behind coffee ($955.9 million) in terms of importance for the country, but well ahead of Guatemala’s two other key agricultural exports: bananas ($469.9 million) and cardamom ($250.3 million).Sugar today represents 14.4 percent of Guatemala’s total exports, 27.1 percent of its agricultural exports and 3 percent of its gross domestic product.“Something elemental we’ve done is to give workers dignified, decent jobs so that they’ll feel content with what they’re doing,” Letona said. “You’ll see the same at any ingenio [sugar factory]. In Cuba, a cortador doesn’t want to cut sugar because he won’t earn any money. Here, workers have the possibility of improving their standard of living.”In Cuba, by comparison, an average machetero earns the equivalent of $40 a month, plus a “stimulus” bag containing two bars of soap, a bottle of cooking oil and some pasta. Cengicaña’s general director, Mario Melgar, says Guatemala has the “recipe for success.” Melgar partly credits the 1992 establishment of Cengicaña, which has 75 employees and operates on a $2 million annual budget.“Before that, each ingenio did its own R&D,” he said, noting that Cengicaña is one of only six sugar research centers financed by the private sector (the others are in Australia, Brazil, Colombia and Ecuador). “Each sugar producer pays a quota depending on its production.”In the 21 years since Cengicaña’s creation, it has introduced 1,875 sugar varieties to Guatemala (including 1,155 brought from Florida, 164 from Mexico, 120 from Brazil, 60 from Barbados, 58 from Australia and Louisiana each, 54 from Cuba and 53 from Puerto Rico).Guatemala now cultivates 235,000 hectares of caña, mainly in the departments of Escuintla, Suchitepéquez, Retalhuleu and Santa Rosa.Boesche, a 73-year-old ASAZGUA executive, works from a wood-paneled office on the 19th floor of the swanky Euro Plaza skyscraper. He’s headed the organization for the past 27 years. During that time, he says, Guatemala’s area under cultivation has tripled, while yield has jumped from 66.3 tons per hectare in 1984-85 to 95.4 tons per hectare today.Daily milling capacity, meanwhile, has nearly tripled from 53,093 tons in the 1984-85 season to 151,673 tons in 2011-12.“Guatemala is a small country, not like Brazil or Colombia, so productivity for us is very important,” Boesche said proudly. “With what we export, we could supply all of Central America, including Panama.”In the next parts of the series, we look at Guatemala’s banana, coffee and African palm industries. But I did see all that, and more, in the company of Fundazucar’s assistant director, Griseldo Say López, and ASAZGUA spokesman Otto René Estrada.What became clear to me after a morning tour of Guatemala’s third-largest sugar operation, followed by a presentation by the Centro Guatemalteco de Investigación y Capacitación de la Caña (Cengicaña) and a late afternoon meeting with ASAZGUA’s president, Armando Boesche, is that when it comes to efficiency and productivity in the sugar industry, the rest of Central America has a lot to learn.According to Estrada, Guatemala’s competitiveness in the sugar industry is based on three elements: “productivity, R&D and technology.”“We offer the best working conditions possible, because this translates into better productivity,” said Estrada, whose organization was founded in 1957 to represent Guatemala’s sugar interests. “All this is based on social responsibility. In an industry as competitive as sugar, we have to respect our workers. This is fundamental.”Guatemala has seen similar success with its coffee, banana and winter vegetable exports. It is now becoming a major exporter of African palm oil, an edible oil that also is used to manufacture biofuels.As human resources manager at La Unión, Fernando Letona is in charge of the well being of 2,800 sugar workers.“They’re very graphic,” Letona said, as we gazed at the huge banners tacked on the walls of Tehuantepec barracks, which are home to some 400 cane-cutters, known in Spanish as cortadores de caña. La Unión has four more barracks just like Tehuantepec, each with their own dormitories, clinics, dining rooms and exercise areas.“All these workers have come from the altiplano,” or high plains, he said. “Work hours are 6:30 a.m. until 3 p.m., with a 15-minute rest in the morning and half an hour for lunch. Breakfast and dinner are served in the comedor, while lunch is served in the field, from food trucks.”Letona said that feeding workers well results in higher yields.“Before we invested in all this, each cortador was cutting 2.5 tons per day. Now they cut 6-7 tons, and some up to 12 tons,” he said. “It’s evident that this investment has had positive effects on productivity.”Workers normally earn 3,800 quetzales ($485) per month, which translates into Q21.60 ($2.75) per hour, he said. That doesn’t include fringe benefits, which come to 42 percent of wages. After taxes and social security, workers keep an average of Q3,500, or $450 per month.

first_img Banking Senate Committee Fannie Mae FHFA Freddie Mac GSEs homes HOUSING Mark Calabria 2019-02-14 Radhika Ojha in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Calabria: Committed to Making FHFA a “World-Class Regulator” February 14, 2019 3,859 Views center_img On Thursday, the Senate Banking Committee conducted a hearing on the nomination of Dr. Mark Calabria as Director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency(FHFA) along with the nominations of Bimal Patel, of Georgia, to be an Assistant Secretary of the Treasury; Todd M. Harper, of Virginia, to be a Member of the National Credit Union Administration Board; and Rodney Hood, of North Carolina, to be a Member of the National Credit Union Administration Board.The Trump administration announced Calabria’s nomination to head the FHFA in December. He is currently the Chief Economist to Vice President Mike Pence. If confirmed, Calabria would have significant influence over the housing finance market at the FHFA.Opening the proceedings for the hearing, Sen. Mike Crapo, Chairman of the Banking Committee said, “FHFA can also play an important role in helping us move toward a more sustainable housing finance system facilitated by an engaged and strongly capitalized private sector.””All the nominees today, if confirmed, have the opportunity to improve American lives, they can make it easier for families to buy homes with mortgages,” said Ranking Member Sen. Sherrod Brown during his opening remarks.While his prepared remarks didn’t mention the current administration’s goal of the privatization of the government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs), Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, Calabria addressed these issues during his discussions with the Committee. Calabria said that if he was confirmed as Director of the FHFA his role would be to “carry out the clear intent of Congress, not impose my own vision.”Giving an outline of what his priorities would be if confirmed, Calabria said that a number of critical elements were needed in reform such as a “greater need for competition.” He said the current FHFA mandate was clearly where “the regulator cannot make such changes.” As a result, he said, “The very broad changes that have to happen in the mortgage finance system have to be done by Congress.”Calabria said that if he was confirmed as the FHFA Director his objective would be to ensure the GSEs were, “well capitalized, well managed, and well regulated.”He also clarified the reports on FHFA Acting Director Joseph Otting’s remarks on the privatization of the GSEs, saying that the remarks were made more to raise the morale of the staff at FHFA than anything else. “My read of what I believe he said was to convey a sense of urgency to the FHFA staff. What he referred to in the terms of me signing off was my longstanding loud support for housing finance reforms. I believe he was conveying to the staff through a pep talk that we will move forward,” Calabria said.Before his nomination for this post, Calabria told the committee that he was involved in conversations around December 2017 that allowed a $3 billion cushion for the GSEs and had supported the amendment of allowing a “modest capital buffer so that we would not have to force a draw, partly because of the impact of the tax reform or the deferred tax losses being held by the GSEs.”Addressing his views on the affordable housing goals Calabria said that his past concerns with affordable housing goals were in the context of “two large institutions with zero capital.” However, he added, “I do believe we can get to a spot where we can have risk-taking via affordable housing goals if we can have an appropriate regulatory structure that has capital backing those goals. I’m very concerned about any large financial institution where we push it to take an additional risk without the appropriate regulatory structure in place.”Clarifying his comments on getting rid of the GSEs in the past, he said that they were essentially pointed towards getting rid of the model of privatize gains and socialize losses. “I believe all large financial institutions need to be well capitalized more managed, more regulated, and I believe the GSEs were “none of the above” before the crisis. My concern is the fundamental model of the heads of Fannie and Freddie walk out with a lot of money while the rest of us get holding the bag. I want these entities to be good corporate citizens, I want them to be the model of how other corporation should want to behave.”Answering a question on the role of the FHFA if the housing market faced another crisis, Calabria said, that it was appropriate for the FHFA to offer assistance to affected borrowers and that “we should recognize and applaud the efforts of Ed DeMarco for the wide-based forbearance that was done by FHFA during the past crisis.” However, he stressed that the agency needed to “approach different borrowers differently” and that the mortgage market should set an expectation for those who can pay, should pay and “focus our efforts on those who can’t pay and need assistance.””FHFA is absolutely necessary,” Calabria said while answering a question on why he wanted to take up this job, despite his past remarks. “In fact, I want to raise the stature of FHFA. I remember how the employees at its predecessor felt and their inability to stand up and be able to do effective financial regulation. I’m committed to seeing turning FHFA into a world-class regulator.”He also gave his views on the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage saying that it was important to have the 30-year rate and that he intended to keep it that way.Click here to view the full testimony.
