Neighbours say the shooter is Thompson’s current boyfriend, who is at large.She was rushed to hospital without vital signs where she was pronounced dead.Hamilton police are asking any witnesses to the homicide to contact them or Crime Stoppers.
The continual evolution of technology, particularly business software and apps, has made it possible for small companies to work with fewer staffers. But too much technology may hurt rather than help.While workers continually adjust to using technology, they still need human contact, says Anita Williams Woolley, a professor of organizational behaviour at Carnegie Mellon University’s Tepper School of Business.“There are situations in which people don’t want to be managed by a bot,” she says.Similarly, owners should think carefully before doing away with human contact for customers, Woolley says. Companies increasingly handle customer service through email and chats on websites using what’s known as artificial intelligence, or AI, and some businesses use electronic kiosks instead of receptionists.“With some of these interpersonal things, AI isn’t there yet,” Woolley says.Over time, people are more accepting of technology, Woolley says, noting that when GPS systems were first introduced, many drivers were irritated or offended by a machine telling them what to do. Now GPS apps are ubiquitous on phones, and some apps make themselves more user-friendly by offering alternatives on voices and accents.“It takes time. But in the meantime, it can backfire,” Woolley says.Owners who want to be sure they’re introducing technology in a positive way should consider a consult with a human resource provider or a customer service consultant._____Follow Joyce Rosenberg at www.twitter.com/JoyceMRosenberg .

In a presidential statement read out at a meeting at UN Headquarters in New York, the Council called for peace and security to be restored and the rule of law re-established in the areas affected by the fighting and that “those responsible for serious violations of human rights and international humanitarian law are brought to justice.”Talks are taking place in Juba, southern Sudan, in a bid to reach a comprehensive peace agreement to end a conflict that has caused the death, abduction or forced displacement of 2 million people across northern Uganda and southern Sudan – as well as the killings of eight UN peacekeepers in the neighbouring Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).During the conflict the LRA became notorious for abducting children and then using them as soldiers or porters, while subjecting some to torture and allocating many girls to senior officers in a form of institutional rape.The group’s leader Joseph Kony and four other senior LRA figures have been indicted for war crimes by the International Criminal Court (ICC), but Ugandan Foreign Minister Sam Kutesa told the General Assembly’s annual gathering of world leaders in September that it has offered an amnesty to the leadership because it believes this is the best way to peacefully end the conflict.Today’s statement from the 15-member body, which was read out by Council President Jorge Voto-Bernales of Peru, welcomed the renewal on 1 November of the cessation of hostilities agreement struck between the two sides in August and pledged to continue to monitor developments closely.Members praised the Ugandan Government for setting up a committee to monitor efforts to relieve humanitarian problems in northern Uganda and also its work so far on a peace, recovery and development plan that aims to tackle longer-term issues.The Council “looks forward to further progress on improving the living conditions for civilians in northern Uganda, measurable against clear benchmarks, and urges Member States to maintain their support to these efforts.”The presidential statement also thanked the Government of Southern Sudan for its help in facilitating the talks and the cessation of hostilities agreement.
AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email PORT JEFFERSON, N.Y. – With the beaming smiles of newlyweds, Paul Forziano and Hava Samuels hold hands, exchange adoring glances and complete each other’s sentences. Their first wedding dance, he recalls, was to the song “Unchained …” ”Melody,” she chimes in.They spend their days together in the performing arts education centre where they met. But every night, they must part ways. Forziano goes to his group home. His wife goes to hers.The mentally disabled couple is not allowed to share a bedroom by the state-sanctioned nonprofits that run the group homes — a practice the newlyweds and their parents are now challenging in a federal civil rights lawsuit.“We’re very sad when we leave each other,” Forziano says. “I want to live with my wife, because I love her.”The couple had been considering marriage for three years before tying the knot last month, and they contend in their lawsuit that they were refused permission from their respective group homes to live together as husband and wife. The couple’s parents, also plaintiffs in the lawsuit, said they have been seeking a solution since 2010.“It’s not something we wanted to do, it’s something we had to do,” said Bonnie Samuels, the mother of the bride.The lawsuit contends Forziano’s facility refused because people requiring the services of a group home are by definition incapable of living as married people, and it says Samuels’ home refused because it believes she doesn’t have the mental capacity to consent to sex.Legal experts are watching the case closely as a test of the Americans With Disabilities Act, which says, in part, that “a public entity shall make reasonable modifications in policies, practices, or procedures … to avoid discrimination on the basis of disability.” The group homes are licensed as nonprofits by the state and receive Medicaid funding on behalf of their clients.“This is a case that is moving into uncharted territory,” says George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley. “If a state licenses the couple to be married, they are afforded all of the protections and privileges of marriage. The most fundamental right is to be able to live together as a married couple.”The couple’s attorney, Martin Coleman, says he has not come across any similar court cases. “What the group homes are saying is that for this class of people, you shouldn’t be married. … What point of intellectual disability is too low for someone to be married?”Sara Gelser, an Oregon state legislator and member of the National Council on Disability board of directors, says Americans have increasingly come to recognize the rights of the disabled to choose to live their own lives, and marriage and sex is part of that.She says the couple’s sex life is nobody’s business.“No one has a right to tell an adult what they can do,” Gelser says. “Sex is a healthy and full part of the human experience. I know it makes some people uncomfortable to think people with intellectual disabilities are engaging in sexual relations, but I don’t understand that.”A spokeswoman for the Catholic Health Systems, which runs the Maryhaven Center of Hope, has declined to comment, citing pending litigation. Maryhaven has 2,000 clients, ranging in age from 5 to 80, in facilities across Long Island. The facility in Manorville where Samuels lives is for women only.David Arntsen, attorney for the Independent Group Home Living program in Manorville, where Forziano lives, says that it doesn’t have facilities for married residents and that there is no specific legal requirement forcing the home to house them. The program’s residences have between three and 12 men and women; the home where Forziano lives is coed, according to his attorney.The lawsuit cites a letter from the director of program services at Independent Group Home Living, saying its homes “are not staffed or designed to house and supervise married couples or assist married couples with the dynamics of their relationships, sexual or otherwise.”Also named in the lawsuit is the state Office of Persons With Developmental Disabilities, which the couple claims sided with the agencies in refusing to accommodate their wishes and has not done enough to find a solution. The office has declined to comment on the lawsuit.Experts say it is difficult to estimate how many mentally disabled people are married, since states ask no questions about a person’s mental capacity on marriage licenses.Tiffany Portzer, a spokeswoman for the state developmental disabilities office, says the agency does not keep data on the marital status of its clients. “I can tell you that we know it’s a small minority of everyone in a group home, she says.The couple’s parents say they have reached out to other state-certified group homes to see if they had space. They were told that although other facilities welcome married couples, nothing was available anytime soon, according to the lawsuit. Their attorney says the couple needs to live near their parents on eastern Long Island, as well as the Maryhaven Day Program, which each has attended for years.Forziano, 30, is classified in the mild to moderate range of intellectual functioning, with recent IQ scores of 50 and 58. He has limited reading and writing skills and cannot manage money.Samuels, 36, is in the moderate range of intellectual functioning, with recent IQ scores of 50 and 44. She has a significant expressive language disability, which can make it difficult sometimes for others to understand her.The Social Security Administration offers disability benefits when a person’s IQ is below 70.The couple met several years ago while attending the performing arts education program for mentally disabled adults, which teaches the basics of staging and set design, and offers singing and acting lessons.“She’s very beautiful and she helps me,” Forziano says of his new bride.Samuels says she fell for her future husband because he was funny; she particularly liked his “knock-knock” jokes.But her eyes begin to well up with tears when asked about her current living situation. “I’m not happy,” she says. “We live apart.”Bonnie Samuels says she never envisioned her daughter would ever be married, let alone become embroiled in a court fight over it.“It does make me very angry,” she says, “that people say they want the best and the most for these individuals, or want them to have the type of life that they would like to have and let them grow as much as they can, and yet they’re being told no.” by Frank Eltman, The Associated Press Posted May 7, 2013 2:23 am MDT Mentally disabled NY newlyweds fight in court to live in same Long Island group home
Trudeau government bolsters Canadian team in U.S. in prep for NAFTA talks by Joan Bryden, The Canadian Press Posted Aug 1, 2017 5:07 pm MDT Last Updated Aug 2, 2017 at 6:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email OTTAWA – The Trudeau government is beefing up its team in the United States as it prepares a full court press to defend Canada’s interests in the looming renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement.Sources say the government is creating a new position of deputy ambassador to the U.S. and is filling it with one of this country’s foremost trade experts: Kirsten Hillman.Trade-savvy individuals are also being appointed as consuls general in Atlanta, San Francisco and Seattle and the government is actively considering opening new consulates in other parts of the U.S.Here at home, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland, the lead minister on NAFTA, is creating a special council to advise her on all aspects of the trilateral trade deal with the U.S. and Mexico.The council will have about a dozen members, representing the groups that have the most at stake in the negotiations, which are to begin on Aug. 16 in Washington.And in a sign that the government is determined to take a unified, non-partisan Team Canada approach to the talks, the council also includes James Moore, a minister of both industry and heritage in Stephen Harper’s previous Conservative government, and Brian Topp, a veteran NDP strategist who ran for the federal party leadership in 2012 and who most recently served as chief of staff to Alberta’s NDP premier, Rachel Notley.The advisory council and the new raft of diplomatic appointments to the U.S. are to be announced Wednesday.Sources, who weren’t authorized to speak publicly about the announcement, told The Canadian Press the objective is to assemble the strongest team possible to protect and advance Canada’s interests in the NAFTA negotiations.Dispatching Hillman to Washington to backstop Ambassador David MacNaughton was touted as a particularly critical addition to the team. She was most recently an assistant deputy minister at Global Affairs, where she was responsible for leading Canada’s trade negotiations agenda, including exploratory free trade discussions with China and ratification of the Canada-European Union trade agreement.Hillman was also Canada’s chief negotiator for the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a trade agreement among 12 countries, including Canada and the U.S. Although Donald Trump withdrew the U.S. from the TPP upon becoming president, experts believe much of the content of the deal could wind up being imported into a modernized NAFTA.The other appointments include:— Nadia Theodore, consul general to Atlanta. She is another long-time bureaucrat who has specialized in trade negotiations. She also served on Canada’s permanent mission to the World Trade Organization. She is currently chief of staff to the deputy minister of international trade at Global Affairs.The government believes it will prove useful to have a trade expert at the consulate deep in the Republican South, the sources said.— Rana Sarkar, consul general to San Francisco. He’s a former president of the Canada-India Business Council, senior fellow at the Munk School of Global Affairs and an entrepreneur who has worked around the world with the global technology community. Sarkar was national director for high-growth markets at KPMG. He also ran unsuccessfully in 2014 for the Liberal nomination in Toronto’s Don Valley North riding.The government hopes Sarkar, who has worked with key high tech companies in California’s Silicon Valley in the past, will be able to seize on opportunities to attract investment from them to Canada.— Brandon Lee, consul general to Seattle. Lee is currently consul general to San Francisco and a long-time bureaucrat at Global Affairs. He has held senior positions at the World Trade Organization and previously worked in the private sector in online banking, telecommunications and information technology — areas that will be on the table during NAFTA negotiations.
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has appointed Major General Delali Johnson Sakyi of Ghana as the head of the United Nations mission tasked with monitoring the ceasefire line between India and Pakistan. Major General Sakyi succeeds Major General Young-Bum Choi of the Republic of Korea, who completed his two-year assignment as Chief Military Observer and head of the UN Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) on 16 June 2014.With more than 35 years of military command and staff experience at national and international levels, Major General Sakyi served most recently as Force Commander for the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS).He has held command and staff positions in the Ghana Armed Forces, and has experience with a number of peacekeeping operations run by the UN as well as by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). According to the Security Council mandate given in resolution 307 of 1971, UNMOGIP observes and reports on ceasefire violations along and across the Line of Control and the working boundary between the South Asian neighbours in Jammu and Kashmir, as well as reports developments that could lead to ceasefire violations.UNMOGIP currently comprises 40 military observers and a number of civilian staff members.

“Ofcom considered that parents and carers were unlikely to have expected material of this nature to be shown on ITV before the watershed and immediately after children’s programming had finished.”An Ofcom spokesman said: “We found some of the content in this news bulletin broke our rules on the protection of minors. The report contained graphic images from a film that was not appropriately scheduled.”ITV apologised for the clip which it said was shown “in error”. Show more Sigourney Weaver and John Hurt in 1979Credit:WENN.com ITV News breached the broadcasting code in a tribute to actor Sir John Hurt, watchdog Ofcom has ruled.The programme aired the gruesome “chestburster” scene from Alien, one of the late star’s best known movies, in its morning bulletin.The graphic and bloody clip, in which a baby alien makes its way out of Hurt’s stomach, was broadcast immediately after a strand of morning children’s TV shows.

Audience figures for ITV News showed 19,000 children, aged four to 15, watched the bulletin.In its ruling, Ofcom said that the sequence shown, which was edited from the full scene in the sci-fi movie, “is notorious for the graphic and shocking way in which the character dies.”The clip as broadcast, despite its relatively brief duration, contained strong and very bloody images, showing a character’s agonising pain and ultimate death. The bulletin, which aired on January 28 at 9.25am, sparked five complaints.Sir John died in January at the age of 77, after a battle with pancreatic cancer.The Oscar-nominated star was well known for roles including Quentin Crisp in The Naked Civil Servant, the title role in The Elephant Man and wand merchant Mr Ollivander in the Harry Potter films.
A spokesman for Southampton City Council, which operates the cemetery, said it “unreservedly apologised” for the situation. He said its records showed Mr Edwards’ grave had been transferred “at the request of a family member, to an adjacent burial plot shortly after the grave had been reserved in 1999.”The council allocated the grave in accordance with these records, which were subsequently shown to be in conflict with the exclusive right of burial produced by the family in question.” A brother whose family made a promise to his dying sister that they would be buried alongside her visited her grave to discover a stranger had been buried in the spot. Mark Edwards reserved a grave space in South Stoneham Cemetery, Southampton so he could one day be laid to rest next to his sister Julie Williams, who died in 1999 aged 41. His parents were also supposed to be buried in the plot.But two years ago the family were horrified to discover that someone else had been buried in the space. Council records show that shortly after Ms Williams’ death her brother’s reservation was mysteriously moved to a different spot, without his knowledge. The court heard that his mother’s last words to his sister had been to promise her that one day her family “would be beside her”.But a judge has decided that Patricia Sutton – who died and was buried in the plot in 2016 – would not be exhumed and moved to another patch within the cemetery.The Edwards family realised the error when they visited Mrs Williams’ grave to mark the anniversary of her death, 10 days after Mrs Sutton’s funeral.The chancellor of the diocese of Winchester, Matthew Cain Ormonroyd, said: “The possibility of real consequences for the Sutton family (the exhumation and its emotional consequences), coupled with the position on alternatives, has just persuaded me that, overall, this is not one of those exceptional cases in which exhumation can properly be ordered.”
Minister of Public Security Khemraj RamjattanPublic Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan has raised eyebrows in Berbice, Region Six after he hosted a meeting at the bottom of a house where a quantity of high-powered illegal weapons and ammunition were found.The issue came to the fore after residents of Corentyne, Bebice questioned the circumstances under which the person who was charged for the illegal guns and ammunition was granted bail.During a community meeting on Friday last, residents questioned senior Police Officers about the issue and were told that the Police did their part, but it was the court which granted the man his pre-trial liberty.On December 17, 2018, Police raided the house at Port Mourant and unearthed two rifles and a quantity of ammunition.According to a Police press release, acting on information received, a search was conducted on the premises of a 51-year-old mechanic which uncovered two rifles – one with a microscopic lens along with 284 rounds of ammunition, nine empty casings, three magazines, and a firearm casing.One Michael Bascom was later charged for the offense and was released on bail pending his trial.On January 27, 2019, Public Security Minister Ramjattan held a public meeting at the said Port Mourant resident’s house where the high-powered weapons and ammunition were found.Efforts by this online publication to contact security officials and Minister Ramjattan himself to comment on the matter proved futile.

Dyno Nobel recently implemented the DigiShot Plus Electronic Initiation System at two different underground mines—producing results that increased productivity, improved safety and decreased overall production costs. DigiShot Plus has a rugged downline wire and is designed for large blasts for both surface and underground mines. It can fire up to 7,200 detonators in surface applications and can be fired remotely from the surface in underground mines.The two underground mines were trying to improve overall productivity using a large blast system with a tough downline wire. One of the mines experienced a 5% reduction in cost because DigiShot Plus improved fragmentation and eliminated the need to re-blast oversize material. At the same mine the larger blasts also allowed it to benefit from reduction in set-up time by 10–15%. This was accomplished because of less frequent blasting, resulting in less downtime in preparation and the early removal of personnel for blasting purposes. The mine was able to use its production crews more efficiently. The other mine increased its tons per blast by 100%, while also achieving a 50% reduction in mucking time.
Terror raids across Melbourne have seen seven people arrested and five placed in custody, over a suspected “explosive event” planned for Christmas Day in Melbourne’s CBD. Close to 400 police officers commenced the raids of five properties on Thursday night, which continued early Friday morning across five of the city’s northern suburbs including Flemington, Meadow Heights, Dallas, Campbellfield and Gladstone Park. “In relation to that threat, we believe that there was an intention to conduct what we call a multi-mode attack, possibly on Christmas Day, the possible locations that we have been working on have been Federation Square, Flinders Street Station, and St Paul’s Cathedral,” Victoria Police Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton said.According to Ashton, officers successfully recovered “the makings of an improvised explosive device” and the plan is believed to have possibly included other weapons such as knives and firearms.“As a result of the investigation, we believe we have neutralised that threat,” he said.“We are anticipating that as a result of that questioning we will present a number of persons before the courts in the early afternoon, seeking to charge them with acts in preparation of a terrorist event.”ASIO and AFP officers, along with Victoria Police had been monitoring a number of suspects across Melbourne for some time.The five men who are currently in custody and aged in their 20s are being questioned by police.Speaking at the police press conference on Friday morning, Victorian premier Daniel Andrews called the plot “an act of evil”.“What the police will allege, was not an act of faith, not an act of religious observance, it was, instead, in its planning, an act of evil, a criminal act,” Mr Andrews said.Given the time of year with citizens planning to attend a number of events surrounding Christmas and the New Year, including the Boxing Day cricket match, the premier reassured that Victoria is a safe state. “All Victorians should know and understand there will be an increased police presence at large gatherings, right across the city and state, over this weekend,” Mr Andrews said.“There already would have been significant additional Victoria Police resources deployed because of the nature of some of those gatherings, but … there will be additional members of Victoria Police providing additional support to the community.”He also took the opportunity to remind the community of the strength of its cultural diversity during this time.“My message to all Victorians is we should cherish the diversity that makes us a stronger community. We should cherish the diversity that makes us the envy of so many other parts of the world,” he said. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram

Jacinta Cox has been looking for a new house to rent since late May with no luck. She and her family have lived in the same place for eight years, but the landlord wants to sell the house. The Cox family would love to stay in Camas, but Jacinta has had to widen her search. “There’s such a flood of renters. It’s insane,” the 33-year-old mother of five said. “It’s almost like this competition lottery thing.”She phoned the landlord of one house posted on Craigslist as soon as she saw the ad, only to be the 70th caller.Although the rental market rate has loosened up since last fall, it remains tight. As of the last measurement this spring by Tigard, Ore.-based Multifamily NW, the vacancy rate was 3.32 percent in West Vancouver and 2.99 percent in East Vancouver. Rents have climbed. The average rent was 93 cents per square foot on the west end of town, up from 87 cents last fall. On the east end of town, rent was 97 cents per square foot, up from 94 cents. The Multifamily NW figures don’t capture the single-family rental market, but the experience there is similar, local landlords say.“The rental market is going to get tighter and tighter,” said Roger Silver, the information officer for Clark County Rental Association, a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating landlords. He has seven rental properties in Vancouver.

PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. (WSVN) – A Pembroke Pines 16-year-old faced a judge, Thursday, after, police said, he shot another teen in the forehead.A judge ordered 16-year-old Nathan Jamil Walker to remain in custody, at least for the next 21 days, as prosecutors decide whether or not to charge him as an adult or as a juvenile.Walker was arrested at his Pembroke Pines home, Wednesday afternoon, after, Pembroke Pines police said, he shot his friend in the head while inside his friend’s home, at around 12:30 p.m.The 15-year-old victim was then rushed to Memorial Regional Hospital. He was conscious and alert during ground transport.Walker told police he had bought the gun for $230, a few months ago, and believed it was unloaded when he showed his friend the gun and accidentally shot him.Walker’s defense attorney, Neil Kerch, said, “We know there was a tragic accident, and we’re hoping and praying that the child makes a full recovery. It’s too early for us to know what happened. I know that he is alive, and he’s in the hospital. We’re hoping for a speedy recovery.”Thursday, the victim remained at the hospital. However, his condition remains unknown at this time. Officials said there was no exit wound in the victim’s head, so it is unclear whether the teen was shot or grazed. Police continue to investigate the case and plan on tracking where the gun was originally purchased.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved.
