At the moment a lot of his name has been forged with our junior team. That’s how he appeared on the scene and we’re really happy with his progress.“His mentality playing with the Under 21s in the last match was great. He needs those matches. He needs that stamina and that game time.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

BlackBerry Secure tools revealed at Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas

first_imgCompanies in this story: (TSX:BB)David Paddon, The Canadian Press TORONTO — Anyone who has seen an “Intel Inside” label on a piece of computer technology will instantly grasp what BlackBerry Ltd. is aiming to achieve with its “BlackBerry Secure” branding strategy.The Canadian technology company, based in Waterloo, Ont., unveiled the latest components of BlackBerry Secure on Monday at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nev.The announcements were aimed mostly at manufacturers and other companies that want to assure their customers that their products have privacy and security features endorsed by BlackBerry.Alex Thurber, a BlackBerry senior vice-president and its general manager of Mobility Solutions, acknowledged that younger consumers may not be as aware of the company as in its heyday before the arrival of the iPhone a decade ago.But Thurber said BlackBerry still makes the security software and other features that go into phones and other devices in return for licencing fees.“Of course, businesses and enterprises and governments are still very aware that BlackBerry is out there because our software management and security has continued to be deployed everywhere,” Thurber said Monday.Speaking by phone from Las Vegas, Thurber said one of the BlackBerry’s achievements has been its accreditations by the National Information Assurance Partnership administered by the U.S. National Security Agency.That accreditation has opened government doors for BlackBerry in the United States — the company’s biggest market — and around the world.“It really is all the G7 governments that use BlackBerry technology, be it the older hardware phones or now the software-protected devices. I think that’s important,” Thurber said.“At the end of the day, people realize that governments need to secure classified information and companies that they trust are companies that have proven themselves.”In today’s world of internet-connected consumer electronics and social media, Thurber added, consumers are also concerned about who is collecting and re-selling their personal information.“We have never monetized users’ data. We have been very clear and up-front about that,” Thurber said.The BlackBerry Secure labelling has been attached to specialty phones by Punkt Tronics AG, under a framework agreement announced last year. BlackBerry also signed a similar deal last year with Bullitt Group, a British smartphone and consumer electronics maker, but that hasn’t yet resulted in a BlackBerry secure product.The company is also working with a partner that makes Alexa-enabled interactive speakers, though the partner hasn’t been identified.BlackBerry is talking with potential partners that could use its BlackBerry Secure feature packs, Thurber said.“We’re hoping that those will start being announced around the time of Mobile World Congress (in Barcelona) at the end of February.”last_img read more

BC Indian Chiefs condemn RCMP enforcement of TransCanada injunction

first_img(with files from the CANADIAN PRESS) VANCOUVER, B.C. – The Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs says they are concerned about the safety and well-being of the Wet’suwet’en as the RCMP set up nearby the Gidimt’en camp to enforce the interim injunction from the BC Supreme Court in December 2018.UBCIC President Grand Chief Stewart Phillip stated “We strongly condemn the RCMP’s use of intimidation, harassment, and ongoing threats of forceful intervention and removal of the Wet’suwet’en land defenders from Wet’suwet’en unceded territory.  In continuing to aggressively threaten the Wet’suwet’en with eviction from their own Title land, the governments of Canada and British Columbia are blatantly ignoring the Supreme Court of Canada’s precedent-setting Delgamuukw case which confirmed that the Wet’suwet’en’s Title and Rights have never been extinguished.  The RCMP’s actions are in direct contradiction to both governments’ stated commitments to true reconciliation, and to full implementation of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples which is a global human rights standard. We demand that Canada and BC call on the RCMP and Coastal GasLink to respect the Unist’ot’en/ Giltseyu-Dark House on unceded lands. The provincial and federal governments must revoke the permits for this project until the standards of free, prior and informed consent are met.”UBCIC Condemns RCMP Intimidation of Wet’suwet’en: “We strongly condemn the RCMP’s use of intimidation, harassment, and ongoing threats of forceful intervention and removal of the Wet’suwet’en land defenders from Wet’suwet’en unceded territory.” #cdnpoli https://t.co/6D1yk1hHvp pic.twitter.com/24jsJRX0JP— UBCIC (@UBCIC) January 7, 2019On Dec. 14, the Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs issued a statement saying they were deeply concerned by the National Energy Board’s decision denying their request to participate in a jurisdictional challenge to the permits issued to TransCanada’s Coastal GasLink pipeline project, which would cross Wet’suwet’en territories.While members of another Wet’suwet’en house, the Unist’ot’en of the Gilseyhu clan, erected a camp and checkpoint in the area of the planned pipeline almost seven years ago, Wickham said the Gidimt’en checkpoint is more recent.“We wanted to show that even though the Unist’ot’en and Gidimt’en are from separate clans, all the chiefs have been opposed to pipelines in our territories for years and years and years,” she said.“Unist’ot’en has been holding that responsibility all by themselves, so the (Gidimt’en) chief decided it was time for all of us to physically show our support.”In an amended injunction order filed Friday, a B.C. Supreme Court justice said the defendants, which include anyone “occupying, obstructing, blocking, physically impeding or delaying access” in the area, have until Jan. 31 to file a response to Coastal GasLink’s injunction application.In the meantime, the order says they are prohibited from physically interfering with or impeding any person or vehicle trying to access the area or carrying on pipeline business, including pre-construction and construction activities. The defendants are also prohibited from threatening, intimidating or getting within 10 metres of anyone actively working on the project.LNG Canada announced on Oct. 2 that its joint venture participants had taken a positive investment decision to construct the Kitimat export facility.B.C. Premier John Horgan said LNG Canada’s decision ranked on the historic scale of a “moon landing,” emphasizing just how much the project means to an economically deprived region of the province,  an estimated $23 billion in provincial revenue.In a notice of civil claim filed Nov. 23, Coastal GasLink says construction on the pipeline is scheduled to begin this month for completion in 2021.“Coastal GasLink has project agreements with all 20 elected Indigenous bands along the length of the project in British Columbia,” the company said in the court document.The company has tried to begin work in an area only accessible by the Morice Forest Service Road, but has been prevented from doing so by the demonstrators, it said.“A small delay in completing the work could contribute to a significant overall delay for the project,” it says.Around 2012, the Unist’ot’en camp set up a blockade by constructing a gate and other obstacles to the area, and a second gate has been constructed recently at the Morice River Bridge, it said. Coastal GasLink was most recently prevented from accessing the area on Nov. 20, it said.In a statement posted on its website, the Unist’ot’en camp issued an international call to action for the Gidimt’en access checkpoint.The statement describes potential RCMP action as “an act of war,” and evidence that Canada is criminalizing and using violence against Indigenous people, despite paying “lip service” to reconciliation. It points to the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, which says Indigenous peoples shall not be forcibly removed from their territories.“We are now preparing for a protracted struggle. The hereditary chiefs of the Wet’suwet’en and the land defenders holding the front lines have no intention of allowing Wet’suwet’en sovereignty to be violated,” it said.last_img read more

Mack Trucks shows off the LR BEV its first batteryelectric garbage truck

first_img More From Roadshow 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value Share your voice 1 Electric Cars Trucks Tags 14 Photoscenter_img The Urban eTruck is your all-electric truck of the future 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous Comment This electric bad boy makes over 4,000 lb-ft of torque and can charge at 150 kW, not bad for a trash truck. Mack Trucks Garbage trucks are dirty. I mean, obviously they’re covered in trash juice and I don’t even want to think of what else, but that’s not what I’m talking about. See, they are powered by massive diesel engines and they put almost as much crud into the atmosphere as they take off of our streets.Mack Trucks thinks it has a better way to get trash trucks around the city and it involves electric power. The company unveiled a prototype battery-electric garbage truck on Wednesday at WasteExpo 2019 (aka arguably the convention I’d least want to attend based on name alone).The model it debuted is based on the LR truck that is already popular with municipalities all over the country; only it has a fairly wild battery-electric drivetrain under it that makes a respectable 496 horsepower and a mind-boggling 4,051 pound-feet of torque. It does this with two 130-kilowatt AC motors, a two-speed transmission and some beefy Mack 56,000-pound axles.The diesel engine on an ordinary trash truck doesn’t just make the wheels spin; it also has to run a ton of hydraulics and other systems. The LR BEV uses battery power to drive these systems, including hydraulics. The whole system is powered by four large lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxide batteries that can be recharged at up to 150 kW and 200 amps.Mack left out the specifics on the LR BEV’s expected range, but it’s fair to assume that most garbage trucks don’t pile the miles on in the same way that a semi truck would. Also, the hundreds of stops and starts that a truck might see during a shift gives plenty of opportunity for brake regen, which should help range too.The first LR electric truck will do its real-world testing with the New York Department of Sanitation starting in 2020. 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything betterlast_img read more

More than enough local cattle are there for Eid

first_imgThere are more than enough locally-reared cattle in the country to meet the huge demand for sacrificial animals during the Eid-ul-Azha this time, reports UNB. The department of livestock services (DLS) said 577,416 commercial farms and farmers have around 11788,563 sacrificial animals ready against a demand for 11000,000. “It’ll be a win-win situation for the cattle farmers and buyers as there’s a surplus stock of sacrificial animals while cattle inflow from India declined significantly,” said DLS director general Hiresh Ranjan Bhowmik. He urged the Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) to stop cattle smuggling from India to ensure the fair prices of animals and thus encourage the cattle farmers to boost the local production further. UNB correspondents from frontier districts said cattle inflow from neighbouring India is very low this time. However, cattle import from Myanmar has marked a rise due to cheaper prices. Bhowmik said around 10.4 million cattle, including 3.8 million cows, were slaughtered during the last Eid-ul-Azha. He said around 11 million cattle, including over 4.2 million cows, are likely to be slaughtered during this eid as the demand for sacrificial animals may rise by five percent. “Over 700,000 cattle will remain surplus after meeting the eid demand.” This year, the DLS DG said, 4582,000 cows and buffalos, and 7206,563 animals have been made ready. A DLS official, wishing anonymity, said the cattle stock was better last year. “The number of surplus cattle was one million last year,” the official said. “About a million animals were brought in from neighbouring countries.” Low Indian cattle inflow One of the reasons for the drop in cattle inflow is the intensification of patrol along the Bangladesh-Indian border. UNB Jashore correspondent reports that the import of Indian cattle through both legal and illegal channels is very low this time unlike previous years. Navaron corridor officials in Sarsha upazila said only 99 cows and five goats were imported legally in July. “On average, 20-22 cattle are being imported each week through Goga and Putkhali border points,” said Anjuman Ara Begum, customs revenue officer-in-charge at Navaron Customs Corridor.Jashore district livestock officer Bhabtosh Kanti Sarkar said 70,600 cattle have been raised at 5,800 farms in the district. The local demand for sacrificial animal is around 63,000. Khulna-21 BGB Battalion chief Imran Ullah Sarkar said they have intensified patrol to prevent cattle smuggling. The scenario is the same in Sylhet. Abul Kashem, deputy director of Sylhet division’s divisional livestock office, said over 35,000 farms have prepared around 221,000 cattle for the Eid. “It’s way more than the local demand,” he said. In Cumilla, farmers have reared around 320,000 cows to meet the demand for sacrificial animals. As supply of cattle from India remained at a minimum, district livestock officer Nazrul Islam said he hoped farmers would get fair prices. According to UNB Chapainawabganj correspondent, the cattle inflow from India, both legally and illegally, has dropped significantly this year. Livestock officer Ananda Kumar Odhikari said it was because of strict monitoring by border guards. Through Thakurgaon, a very small number of cattle is entering the country illegally. Thakurgaon BGB-50 Battalion chief Sami-un-Nabi said both the BGB and BSF are on high alert to prevent cattle smuggling from India ahead of Eid.”So far, we don’t have any information about cattle inflow from India. But a very insignificant number of cattle may still be smuggled in. We’re intensifying our surveillance,” he said. UNB correspondents from Rajhshai, Rangpur, Dinajpur and Kurigram said the situation was similar in their areas.However, the inflow of sacrificial animals from Myanmar through Teknaf border has marked a sharp rise in recent days. Teknaf customs office M Foyez Uddain said 5,310 cows from Myanmar were brought in legally in the last three days. “Over 25,000 more cattle may be imported from Myanmar before the Eid,” he said. Mohammad Faisal Hasan Khan, commanding officer of BGB Teknaf-2, said cattle import from Myanmar has increased as there is no tension along the border. “We’re supervising the cattle import activities,” he said.Giasuddin, one of the major cattle importers from Myanmar, said the price of cattle is lower in Myanmar than the last year. “Each cow is costing us Tk 8,000-10,000 less than the previous year,” he said.last_img read more

US Ebola case First diagnosis outside Africa

first_imgThe man is also the first to be diagnosed outside Africa, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said, cautioning that since he was not sick on the plane he was unlikely to have infected other travellers.CDC chief Tom Frieden vowed that US health authorities would be able to contain the virus and the White House said President Barack Obama had been briefed by the CDC about the Texas case.‘We are stopping this in its tracks,’ said Frieden, describing the man as critically ill.The world’s largest outbreak of Ebola has infected more than 6,500 people across five west African countries and killed 3,091 since the start of the year, according to the World Health Organization.The CDC warned last week that a worst-case scenario could see Ebola cases explode to 1.4 million worldwide by January, but that such dire predictions could be avoided if resources are scaled up.The United States has already treated several patients who acquired Ebola during the West African outbreak, including Christian missionary doctors Kent Brantly and Rick Sacra, who have been declared free of the virus.last_img read more
