CORONER PREVIEW BLACK DOG

first_imgAdvertisement If y’all have read me at all here at The Televixen (Hi!), you know my full stop love affair with Canadian TV began in earnest with the coroner-based procedural (On paper, but It’s. So. Much. More.) Da Vinci’s Inquest. I’m also very fond of 2017’s moody procedural and character study, Bellevue. When its co-showrunner, Adrienne Mitchell, was attached to produce and direct CBC’s new drama series, Coroner, which arrives Monday, it was a double win for me.[Warning: General spoilers ahead.]Inspired by M.R. Hall‘s novels, Coroner was created by Morwyn Brebner, whose last series, Saving Hope, ran for five seasons on CTV. Brebner has also executive produced and written for Mary Kills People and Bellevue and created Rookie Blue, so she’s astute at giving voice to complex, complicated, and complete women. Advertisement Facebook Advertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment In Coroner, Brebner’s lead character is Dr. Jenny Cooper (Serinda Swan doing a whiplash 180 from 2017’s Inhumans). Cooper is a former ER doctor and the new Toronto coroner. She’s also the recently widowed single Mom of a teenage son. The show begins with her arrival into the police department, the first step in trying to move her life forward while still haunted by the sudden death of her husband, David (Emmanuel Shirrinian).

UN experts urge action to facilitate food aid deliveries to malnourished Somalis

With insecurity, massive displacement and piracy hampering efforts to delivery food aid to Somalis suffering from malnutrition, two independent United Nations experts today urged international action to address the problem.Difficulties in delivering life-saving assistance “exacerbate the widespread chronic nutrition crisis that in certain regions of Somalia has reached emergency levels of global acute malnutrition,” said the Special Rapporteur on the right to food, Jean Ziegler, and the Independent Expert on the situation of human rights in Somalia, Ghanim Alnajjar, in a statement released in Geneva.They noted that 200,000 Somalis in the Gedo region, many suffering from severe malnutrition, only recently received an aid delivery after awaiting humanitarian assistance for six months. The experts voiced alarm at the difficulties and delays encountered at crossing points on the Kenya-Somalia border, some of which have been closed or operating at a very low level since January. They noted that trucks are now being allowed to cross, and expressed for a permanent solution for humanitarian shipments across the Kenya-Somalia border.“The experts are also disturbed to learn that incidents, including theft of food from beneficiaries particularly from minority groups, continue to occur during and immediately after food distribution,” the statement said, blaming hundreds of roadblocks for impeding food delivery and allowing for “abusive taxation by rogue officials and assorted militias.”The experts urgently call on the Somali Transitional Federal Government (TFG) to facilitate the transport of food aid, end abusive taxation and ensure security and non-discrimination in the distribution of food aid. They also urged the Government of Kenya to cooperate to facilitate the swift delivery of food assistance, while calling for neighbouring countries as well as the international community to support the TFG in fighting piracy off Somalia’s coast. 12 July 2007With insecurity, massive displacement and piracy hampering efforts to delivery food aid to Somalis suffering from malnutrition, two independent United Nations experts today urged international action to address the problem. read more

UN launches information system to boost disaster prevention food security measures

The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) Information System will facilitate access to meteorological observations and products, making it easy to share them with a wide variety of stakeholders. According to WMO, this will translate into free and more efficient climate services for various sectors including disaster risk reduction, which relies on this type of data for many of its operations.“The WMO Information System is the pillar of our strategy for managing and moving weather, climate and water information in the 21st century,” said WMO Secretary-General Michel Jarraud.“It will reduce the costs of information exchange incurred by national meteorological and hydrological services and maximize exploitation of advances in communications technology,” he said. The system will also cut the costs of data exchange and integrate information from national and global data centres, WMO said in a news release. Mr. Jarraud emphasized that the system will “allow users outside the meteorological community to have free access to this information for the first time.”The system builds on the Global Telecommunication System of WMO’s World Weather Watch, which has been the backbone of meteorological information exchange for the past 40 years and is used for daily weather observations and forecasts, tropical cyclone warnings and tsunami alerts, among other applications. 31 January 2012The United Nations launched today an information system to improve and expand the exchange of weather, climate and water data, which can be used for disaster risk reduction, water management, food security and health purposes. read more

La Vie en Rose to expand Bikini Village across Canada after buying

MONTREAL — Lingerie and swimwear retailer Boutique La Vie en Rose plans to expand Bikini Village stores across Canada and abroad after reaching an agreement to buy the insolvent bathing suit chain.“Bikini is a strong name and we’re going to build a national chain with that division,” said La Vie en Rose CEO Francois Roberge, who added he paid less than $4 million for the company which he previously tried three times to buy over the past 12 years.About 300 jobs will be preserved, but half of the 50 head office jobs will be lost as it merges the headquarters of the two companies.La Vie en Rose plans to keep 48 of Bikini Village’s stores in Quebec, Ontario, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, but will close four outlet locations in Quebec.After stabilizing the business, the new owners plan to work on adjusting the merchandising at the retailer in time for the fall cruise season.The changes are designed to restore annual sales to about $50 million from the current level of $34 million.It will then focus on a Canadian expansion, especially in Western Canada, increasing the number of stores to about 70 to 75 over the next year to 18 months.Bikini Village files for creditor protection; stores to remain openJacob will close its doors for good, despite an attempt to reinvent itself as a smaller chainLa Vie en Rose also plans to expand the Bikini Village brand internationally in about two years.“If we can make money here (Canada) we can make money anywhere,” he said referring to the challenges of a short summer season.The purchase is subject to approval by a Quebec Superior Court judge. Groupe Bikini Village filed for creditor protection last month under the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act after posting a series of million-dollar quarterly losses.Bikini Village chairman Jocelyn Dumas said it found a strategic buyer in La Vie en Rose.“There’s a good fit. We’re very happy that many of the jobs will be saved and the brand will continue to live.”Maintaining the Bikini Village brand is a rare survival story for Canada’s battered retail sector in recent months with the closure of Mexx, Boutique Jacob, Target, Smart Set and the bankruptcy filing of Parasuco Retail, said retail consultant Terry Henderson of the J.C. Williams Group.He said the combination with an existing swimwear retailer makes sense because La Vie en Rose can streamline Bikini Village’s back office operations and use its buying power and merchandising expertise.La Vie en Rose has nearly 180 stores across Canada operating under three banners — La Vie en Rose, La Vie en Rose Aqua, and La Vie en Rose Outlet — as well as more than 75 stores outside of Canada in more than 14 countries. read more

Facing grim situation in Palestinian territories UN raises aid appeal by 80

The revised amount “aims to alleviate the impact of soaring joblessness and collapse in family income through the creation of emergency employment and to prevent increased malnutrition through expanded food assistance to families unable to meet their caloric needs,” the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said today.It noted that infants and children, who make up half the population, are at special risk of malnutrition in the fiscal crisis facing the Palestinian Authority (PA). After the Hamas victory in the January election, Israel stopped the transfer of Palestinian value added taxes (VAT) and customs taxes it is obligated to pass over, which comprise around 50 per cent of the PA budget.The revised appeal will attempt to revive an agricultural sector hard-hit by closures, provide essential health services including counselling for traumatized youth, and provide water to communities with restricted access. With revenues including donor funds to the PA rapidly drying up, salaries to 152,000 of its employees, who support 1 million people, or more than 25 per cent of the population, have now not been paid since February. The lack of salaries and essential supplies will undermine the delivery of key services to most Palestinians, OCHA warned.If current trends persist, Palestinian gross domestic product (GDP) is conservatively estimated to fall by 25 per cent by the end of 2006. Poverty is predicted to rise, and around 70 per cent of Gaza’s potential workforce will either not be working or be unpaid.The revised appeal cannot, and does not aim to replace the comprehensive range of services provided by the PA, such as hospitals and schools. read more

UK commercial vehicle production declines for seventh month in March

Figures released today by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) show that UK commercial vehicle (CV) manufacturing fell for the seventh consecutive month in March. 7,145 vans, trucks, buses and coaches left production lines, representing a -10.8% fall compared with March last year.While overseas demand remained relatively stable, with just 79 fewer units produced for export, this was not enough to offset the decline in CVs built for the UK market, which fell by -24.9%. The proportion of exported CVs remains at a high level, however, accounting for 66.8% of production in March.Meanwhile, in the first quarter, 19,252 CVs were built in the UK, down -17.9% on the same period last year. CV manufacture for domestic and overseas markets fell -26.6% and -13.0% respectively, however, exports continue to drive volumes with almost seven in 10 (13,095) CVs built in the UK destined for global customers.The news comes as SMMT highlights the importance of commercial vehicles in the UK. New consumer research reveals the extent of consumers’ reliance on CVs and the vital role Britain’s 5 million goods and service vehicles play in driving our society and economy. Almost 9 in 10 (88%) British consumers said reduced or restricted CV-driven services would significantly affect their quality of life, while almost half (46%) had directly benefitted from a commercial vehicle in the last 24 hours.1Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive, said,With March marking the seventh month of negative growth for UK commercial vehicle manufacturing, it’s clear that economic and political uncertainty continues to take its toll on business confidence.Fleet investments are huge commitments so government must encourage fleet renewal through the right policies and incentives, and maintain the economic conditions needed to fuel growth in this important sector.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) British commercial vehicle production declines for seventh month in March, down -10.8% to 7,145 units.Export demand broadly steady, down -1.6%, with just 79 fewer CVs shipped overseas compared with previous March.Considerable decline in home demand, with both March and Q1 output falling by a quarter.Overall output falls -17.9% in first quarter with 19,252 vehicles manufactured year to date. read more

Eickhoff awarded major shearer order from Datong

first_imgBesides orders received from various new clients, Eickhoff Bergbautechnik GmbH (Eickhoff’s Mining Technology Division) obtained orders for additional seven shearer loaders from one of its key Chinese customers, Datong Coal Mine Group, earlier this year. With the six new Eickhoff SL500 and one Eickhoff SL300 in the new order, Datong´s fleet of Eickhoff shearer loaders will have increased to a total of 25.While the SL300 has an installed power of 1.158 MW and is “perfectly geared to mid seam applications between 1.6 m and 4 m, the Eickhoff SL500 with its 1.915 MW is widely used in mid to high seam applications between 2.3 m and 6 m. The company states: “For nearly two decades the Eickhoff SL 500 has been recognised as a top cutting machine in international high performance longwall systems and has earned a reputation as a workhorse with high availability and minimum downtimes. Owing to its remarkable reliability, the Eickhoff SL500 continues to be number one choice for longwall specialists in China and Russia. Operators value the characteristic Eickhoff underframe concept while owners appreciate its profitability.”Datong started to operate its first Eickhoff SL500 back in 2002. Today, Datong is not only one of the major customers of Eickhoff but also one of the main coal producers in China with coal production of 39 Mt in 2012. The purchase of the additional seven machines will serve to further strengthen the role of the Datong Group. The statement concludes: “Since the very first Eickhoff shearer started cutting Datong has been achieving new production records on a regular basis with this reliable and powerful, yet safe and economical shearer loader model.” Overall, Eickhoff deliver some 50 longwall shearers and continuous miners per year to the global coal industry.last_img read more

The sandwich generation Large number of women supporting their adult children and

first_imgHalf of all women in the category provide “substantial time support to their parents”: One-third provide support towards basic and personal care like dressing, eating and bathing for an average of 21 hours per week.One third provide practical household help, including shopping and household chores to their non-resident adult children for an average of 12 hours per month.One third look after grandchildren for an average of 34 hours per month.9 per cent provide financial support to their parents, with the average amount being €2,000 in the last two years.Two-thirds provide financial support to their children, at an average of €3,000 over the last two years.Almost 80 per cent of women who were financially supporting their parents were also financially supporting their children. The authors of the study found there was an impact on women’s health from that having to provide such support, but that it varied by the type of support given. Providing financial support to children was associated with “improved self-rated health,” while providing financial support to parents was associated with increased depression.Providing practical household support for adult children was also associated with increased depression.According to lead author Dr Christine McGarrigle: “The impact of financial giving on mental health could be the result of a number of different factors.“We found that women who gave financial help to their parents were twice as likely to also provide personal care, like dressing, bathing and feeding their parents. Thus the depression experienced by these women may reflect both the financial strain and the stress of informal caring for parents.“Alternatively depression could be associated with the reduction in savings as a result of the need to provide financial support to parents, and subsequent worry among the sandwich generation women about their ability to provide for themselves and both their parents and children in the future.”Read: Today’s the first deadline for the Local Property TaxRead: Christmas lights to get switched on in the capital today ALMOST A THIRD of Irish women between the ages of 50 and 69 are in the ‘sandwich generation’ — meaning they have children, and their parents are still alive, a newly-released study from Trinity College shows.Of that number – just over 140,000 in total – the majority are providing care to older and younger generations, including grandchildren.The ‘Longitudinal Study on Ageing’ report finds that 58 per cent of ‘sandwich generation’ women give help to their parents, while 83 per cent give help to their children.

Businesses Overwhelmingly Choosing Apple Tablets

first_imgApple has completely dominated the consumer tablet space in the past year. In fact, by most accounts, the company more or less created the space. Before the creation of the iPad, such a thing seemed like little more than a pipedream. Tablets had long been the realm of very specific verticals.While companies are introducing their own tablets by the boatload (only a tiny fraction of which have come to the market, of course), many have eschewed the prospect of direct competition with Apple, instead opting to target other markets–markets like business. AdChoices广告Things aren’t looking to rosy for the competition on that front, either. According to new numbers from analyst group ChangeWave, of the 14 percent of companies who plan to buy a tablet in the first quarter of next year, 78 percent plan to buy an Apple. Dell and Apple are tied for a distant second at nine percent each, HP has eight, and poor old Samsung is trailing behind at four. Of those opting for a tablet, 73 percent use it for Internet access (that number seems a little low, actually…), 69 percent for checking e-mail, 67 percent for working outside the office. There’s been a pretty big jump for those businesses that are using the tablet as a “laptop replacement”–that number has risen 13 percent to 38. A sign of things to come, perhaps?last_img read more

RTÉ reassessing everything it does amid unprecedented financial situation

first_img 151 Comments By Cónal Thomas 45,802 Views Sep 6th 2019, 5:01 PM Friday 6 Sep 2019, 5:01 PM RTÉ STAFF HAVE been told the broadcaster’s financial situation is unlike anything it has seen before and that everything it does is being reassessed. In a letter to staff, RTÉ Director General Dee Forbes said that although the decision by the Government to tender for TV licence collection services was welcome, the decision to defer implementation of a revised media charge system “means that the crisis in the funding of public service media will continue”. “And with reform now pushed out further, RTÉ’s capacity to deliver against its existing remit is severely compromised,” Forbes added. Forbes said that with commercial revenues and public funding both “significantly below” what is needed to operate RTÉ in its current form, the broadcaster’s financial situation is unlike anything it has seen before.“As a result, it will no longer be possible to continue as we are,” Forbes said. Forbes said that the RTÉ Executive, together with the RTÉ Board, has been reassessing everything the broadcaster currently does and what it can continue to do into the future.“This review is almost complete and we will share details with you as soon as we practically can,” Forbes said. It is expected that these details will be made available to RTÉ staff in October.  Share87 Tweet Email1 Image: Mark Stedman/Photocall Ireland RTÉ ‘reassessing everything it does’ amid unprecedented financial situation RTÉ Director General Dee Forbes told staff it “will no longer be possible to continue as we are.” https://jrnl.ie/4799084 Image: Mark Stedman/Photocall Ireland Short URL Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

On the Hill Trump Signs FY19 Milcon Minibus Congress May Send White

first_imgPresident Trump on Friday signed the first batch of fiscal 2019 spending bills Congress is planning to send his way by Oct. 1, providing full-year appropriations for the military construction-Veterans Affairs, energy-water and legislative branch titles. The conference report for the three-bill minibus allocates $10.3 billion for military construction and family housing programs next year, a $241 million increase over current year spending. The funding falls $130.6 million below the Pentagon’s FY 2019 budget request, however. … Next up is the conference report for a two-bill spending package covering the defense and labor-HHS-education titles. The House is expected to adopt it this week — after the Senate easily passed the minibus last week — placing its fate in the hands of Trump, who has offered conflicting signals as to whether he will sign it.

Public toilets to come up at three Metro stations

first_imgKolkata: For the first time in its 34-year history, Kolkata Metro has decided to set up public toilets at Metro stations.According to sources at the metro railways, the four stations where such facilities will come up include — Sobhabazar-Sutanati, Sahid Khudiram and Noapara.It may be mentioned that passengers of Metro railways had to face a lot of problem due to lack of public toilets at the station.The metro network currently consists of one operational line of 27.22 km from Noapara in the north to Kavi Subhash (Garia) in the south with more than 300 services daily. On an average, more than 6.5 lakh commuters avail metro services in the city and the number of stations stands at 24.The decision has been welcomed by the citizens particularly women. “We will be immensely benefitted if there are public toilets at all stations.

Freddie Mac Details 307M NonPerforming Loan Sale

first_img Freddie Mac announced the completion of its auction of 1,789 non-performing residential first lien loans (NPLs) from its mortgage-related investments portfolio on Tuesday. The loans totaled around $307 million, and are currently serviced by NewRez LLC, doing business as Shellpoint Mortgage Servicing. The transaction is expected to settle in July 2019.The winning bidders across the three pools include InSolve Global Credit Fund IV, L.P. for the first pool, and Elkhorn Depositor LLC for the second and third pool.Freddie Mac’s NPL sale is part of the FHFA’s three strategic goals as conservator of the Enterprises, including maintaining foreclosure prevention activities and credit availability, reducing taxpayer risk, and building a new single-family securitization infrastructure.As part of the Federal Housing Finance Agency’s (FHFA) effort to build a single security platform, Common Securitization Solutions, LLC along with Fannie and Freddie are to implement the Single Security Initiative on the Common Securitization Platform for both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in the Q2  2019. As part of this implementation Freddie Mac recently announced that its Investor Reporting Change Initiative (IRCI) will revise Single-Family investor reporting requirements, beginning in May 2019, including moving the investor reporting cycle from mid-month to end-of-month and updating remittance cycles. The FHFA’s 2018 Scorecard Progress Report details these major GSE activities.Freddie Mac states that it is making the changes to promote alignment and industry standards for the Uniform Mortgage Backed Security. In March, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) issued a final rule that requires Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to align programs, policies, and practices that affect the cash flows of “To-Be-Announced” (TBA)-eligible Mortgage-Backed Securities. The agency statement indicated that this is a major step forward. “This rule demonstrates FHFA’s commitment to the success of the UMBS, which will promote liquidity and efficiency in the secondary mortgage market,” said Joseph Otting, FHFA Acting Director.
