Nova Scotians will continue to receive quality health-care advice and support through 811 when Medavie’s Emergency Medical Care Inc. assumes operation of the service on Nov. 1. McKesson Canada, the current vendor, has chosen to transition its telecare service over to Emergency Medical Care Inc. Provisions within the contract awarded in 2014 allows McKesson to move the existing contract to another vendor. There will be no disruption or changes in the services as a result of this transfer. The same trusted, well-trained staff who currently answer calls will remain employed and the cost of the service will remain the same to taxpayers, as all provisions of McKesson’s contract will move to the new company. Telecare includes access to registered nurses who provide advice about everything from abdominal and chest pain to rashes, coughs, nausea and vomiting. The service also provides support for smoking cessation and problem gambling through trained counselors. It is available around the clock in over 120 languages and last year, more than 120,000 Nova Scotians used the service.
WINNIPEG – The home of the National Hockey League Winnipeg Jets is getting a new name.After 13 years as MTS Centre, the downtown arena is being renamed Bell MTS Place.The change reflects the recent takeover by Bell Canada of MTS. There are no other changes to MTS’s naming agreement that expires in 2021.Jets co-owner Mark Chipman says since there is already a Bell Centre in Montreal, using the word “place” in the new moniker avoids any potential confusion.The arena opened in 2004 and was initially home to the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League.In 2011, the Jets moved in after being relocated from Atlanta.“It’s been an era where building name changes have been common. I think we’re one of the longest-standing-name buildings in the country and we’re really proud of that,” Chipman said Tuesday.“I love the fact that Bell has kept the MTS name as a part of their name going forward.”
Marrakech – King Mohammed VI delivered a landmark speech before the two houses of parliament on Friday in Rabat.During his speech, the King criticized the lack of action and effective work of the Moroccan political class, and urged it to develop “a truly ethical charter for political action.”“Political discourse requires being honest with the citizens, making objective analyses and ensuring that stakeholders show mutual respect, so they can all be partners in serving the nation, and not just politicians divided by narrow interests”, the King said. Shortly after the speech, a fierce fight broke out between Parliamentary Advisor of the Authenticity and Modernity Party (PAM), Aziz Lebbar, and the Secretary General of the independence Party, Hamid Chabat, both from the city of Fez, Morocco’s third largest city.The fight took place after Chabat addressed Lebbar congratulating him for the feast of Eid Al Adha. Instead of doing likewise, Lebbar answered him and said, “he was just a thief and he sold the city of Fez.” As soon the fight broke out, some members of Parliament tried to end it.The PAM party member claimed that, “Chabat‘s role within the parliament is protecting thugs who have treated him aggressively.” He also accused him of destroying and burning Fez, making its people homeless, and turning it into the capital of criminality.Lebbar called PAM, “a clean party”, and urged its members to ”cease all kinds of coordination with parties such as the one led by the criminal Chabat.” On the other hand, he called upon the party to look for other alliances that would push people to eagerly engage in politics.Abd-el-Kader Kihal, another member of Chabat’s Independence party, condemned the behavior of Lebbar, as he emphasized that the suitable place to discuss the problems of Fez is not in the parliament.Commenting on this incident, Chabat said, “Lebbar’s behavior is abnormal.” Additionally, he told Hespress that, “All what happened is essentially due to many actions he carried out as mayor of the city of Fez.”Immediately after the incident the PAM party decided to exclude Lebbar from its ranks.The incident was commented by Moroccans, who deplored the lack of civility of the MPs and their lack of respect towards the King and the Moroccan people.
Amman – Some 11,568 Syrian refugees received medical services at the Moroccan field hospital in Zaatari camp, North-east of Jordan, last July.According to the statistics provided by the hospital administration, the children were on the top of those who were extended health services with 4,160 cases, followed by women (4,172) and men (3,236).As many as 3,943 emergency cases, 1,261 pediatric cases and 1,716 general medicine cases were referred to the hospital. Some 8,445 prescriptions were offered by the different departments of the hospital to patients and 81 surgical operations were carried out by the hospital staff in July.The Moroccan field campaign hospital, located on the borders between Jordan and Syria, has a capacity of 60 beds. It is manned by 100 executives, including 32 doctors of 20 different specialties.
“The resolution adopted at the OAS yesterday provides [an] impartial mechanism to clarify events and offers both countries a path to resolve their differences peacefully and cooperatively,” he said in a statement issued by his spokesperson.Mr. Ban pledged the UN’s full support to the OAS-led process.Ecuadorian and Venezuelan troops amassed at their borders with Colombia following a weekend attack claiming the life of a senior leader of the rebel group, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), according to press reports.In an earlier statement, the Secretary-General voiced his concern over the “increased tensions and heightened rhetoric” following last weekend’s events, and urged all three nations to address their shared concerns “in the spirit of dialogue and cooperation that has traditionally characterized their relations.” 6 March 2008Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today welcomed the leadership displayed by the Organization of American States (OAS) in addressing tensions between Colombia and Ecuador that flared last weekend.
“Somali journalists are often harassed, arrested, censored, even imprisoned, and media organizations are closed down,” underlined Bahame Tom Mukirya Nyanduga, who is the United Nations Independent Expert on the situation of human rights in the troubled Horn of Africa country, where he just completed his second mission on 29 May.“Such incidents risk having a chilling effect on this basic right, particularly essential at a time when Somalia moves towards finalising its State-building process,” the expert noted, calling on the Federal Government to put in place a legal framework that guarantees the freedom of the media, to practise their profession free of intimidation, harassment and imprisonment. Mr. Bahame Nyanduga also expressed concern at the continued application of the death penalty throughout Somalia, despite the commitment to adopt a moratorium on capital punishment made by the Government to the UN Human Rights Council during it 2011 Universal Periodic Review of the situation in the country.“I encourage the Somali authorities to put in place that moratorium,” he stressed. During his eight-day mission, which began on 22 May, the expert equally drew attention to the apparent weakness in security and justice institutions, particularly the failure by the police to provide adequate security for the civilian population, including in camps for internally displaced people.In response, the Government explained its efforts to increase police recruitment, particularly of female police officers and to enhance their technical capacities. Officials also outlined the efforts undertaken to provide protection to victims of rape and gender-based violence and to encourage victims to use the formal justice system rather than the traditional justice system.According to the Independent Expert, the Federal Government and the regional authorities to engage in dialogue with traditional and religious leaders in the lead-up to the constitutional referendum and elections in 2016 to encourage inclusive participation of women, minorities and persons with disabilities in the political process.Next year, Somalia’s human rights record will be reviewed by other UN Member States through the Universal Periodic Review process. This September, Mr. Bahame Nyanduga will submit a comprehensive report with recommendations to the Human Rights Council aimed at assisting the government to fulfil its obligations.Independent experts or special rapporteurs are appointed by the Geneva-based Human Rights Council to examine and report back on a country situation or a specific human rights theme. The positions are honorary and the experts are not UN staff, nor are they paid for their work.
“In many parts of Afghanistan, violence continues unabated and people need support more than ever,” said Toby Lanzer, the UN Humanitarian Coordinator in Afghanistan, underlining the needs in the country. “Today I call on international donors to stand by 2.8 million people whose lives have been ruined by conflict or natural disaster, and to help people returning to Afghanistan from neighbouring countries.” According to a news release issued by the UN Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the plan includes activities of more than 150 national and international humanitarian organizations as well as the UN to deliver assistance to families and communities in need. There are however, substantial challenges, including difficult access conditions as well as increasing violence against aid workers. Last year, armed clashes were the highest in a decade and civilian casualties remained near record levels. In addition to more than two million people directly affected by the conflict including almost half a million displaced, 2017 also saw about 500,000 Afghans returning to their homes after seeking refuge in Iran, Pakistan or other countries. The 2018 Humanitarian Response Plan focuses only on providing life-saving emergency assistance such as food and shelter, medical treatment and nutrition interventions for malnourished child to people caught up in current or very recent disasters. Besides the 2.8 million people the plan is designed for, another 8.7 million people are estimated to live with high level of needs as a result of long-standing and unresolved issues such as lack of jobs and livelihoods, long-term displacement, an underfunded healthcare system or the effects of climate change. “Humanitarian emergency assistance cannot provide a solution for such chronic needs, like land for housing or jobs and vocational training to lift them out of poverty and fragility,” read the news release, underlining the need to improve the underlying conditions.
This photo of gold mine workers in the 1980s is part of the Hemlo gold donation to Brock.There’s gold in them there hills, and entrepreneur David Bell is bringing evidence of it to Brock.One of the founders of the world-class Hemlo gold mining site in northern Ontario, Bell and his wife, Brock alumna and geologist Angela Bell, have donated a number of core samples of ore mined from the camp to the University. They have also donated a number of documents – including photos, maps and reports – telling the story of the Hemlo deposit located about 350 kilometres east of Thunder Bay.Hemlo made headlines in the early 1980s when it was part of the largest mineral development in Ontario since the 1960s. David Bell helped discover three mines north of Lake Superior. The mines – David Bell, Golden Giant and Williams – opened in 1985 and produced close to 30 tonnes annually. The David Bell and Williams mines are still in operation by Teck Cominco.Donating the materials to Brock was a natural fit for the Bells, who live in St. Catharines.“We wanted to have it available for aspiring young geologists,” David Bell said.The materials will be a great teaching tool for the department, said Frank Fueten, professor and structural geologist in Brock’s Earth Sciences department.“This will give our students a chance to access a significant piece of Ontario’s geological history,” he said.
You know those signs that tell you not to joke about bomb threats in airport security lines? They’re no laughing matter. And apparently they extend into the Twittersphere–at least in the UK, where a 27-year-old accountant posted the following upon discovering that airport was closed,Crap! Robin Hood airport is closed. You’ve got a week and a bit to get your shit together otherwise I’m blowing the airport sky high!! Whoops. The accountant, one Paul Chambers, was arrested back in January following his “foolish prank.” He was convicted for the perceived bomb threat and fined £1,000 ($1,615) over the summer. In an followup hearing held this week, Judge Jacqueline Davies upheld the original ruling on all accounts. The judge read the offending tweet aloud, adding that Chambers surely knew that the joke might have been taken as a serious threat.

It seems that modern plumbing is not so modern. A series of symposia on the on-going excavations undertaken by archaeologists in Pella, the birthplace of Alexander the Great, have revealed that Hellenistic-era Pella enjoyed plumbing and furnaces.The excavations in Pella have added to the findings of a dig in nearby Archontikon at Giannitsa. Whereas the recent finds in Pella have been from the post-Christian Hellenistic period, houses and domestic utensils have been found at Archontikon dating back 4,000 years to pre-historic Greece.Meanwhile, the island of Lemnos continues to provide archaeologists with further evidence that an advanced civilization was based at the present excavation site of Poliochhni.Archeologists have excavated a a quasi-Parliament, or “vouleuterion” in Poliochhni. Greek archaeological sources argue that four millennia before Christ and the ancient city of Troy, the “vouleuterion” in Poliochni represented the first signs of the democratic impulse in Ancient Greece.

Carles Puyol has revealed that he believes that his former Barcelona teammate Gerard Pique is the best centre-back in the world right nowThe former Barcelona captain, who led the club to six La Liga titles during his 15 year career with the senior side, was full of praise of Pique and labelled him as the best defender in the world and remarked on how much he has improved over the years.“Right now, Pique is the best centre-back in the world,” said Puyol, according to Lavanguardia.“He’s the perfect age and physically he is in great shape. He’s always been very intelligent, but you notice it more now.Quiz: How much do you know about David Villa? Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to test your knowledge about Spanish legendary forward David Villa.”The same with his leadership, which he’s always had but now he’s in complete control on the pitch, especially at the back. That’s a plus.”His positioning has improved as well. He hardly ever loses his position and he knows how to read the game and to anticipate what’s going to happen. He never loses his head. He seems more responsible, too, something which comes with time and age.”“Now he picks his moments [to join in attacks] much better,. Maybe he will only go forward once in a game now but he has a gift, something intangible that very few players have. It’s called goal-scoring instinct and that allows him to be in the right place at the right time. It happened against Roma, he went forward once and he scored.”After graduating from the B team in 1999, Puyol went on to make 593 appearances in all competitions for Barcelona and led them to three Champions League titles. The former defender retired at the end of the 2013/14 season.

Fans can have their opinion, but I have a lot of respect for Wes,” Puel added.“He keeps a good level in his performance, and the training sessions. I respect all of our center-backs, because we have different possibilities.”

A student volunteer holds a 3,00-year-old tool chipped from red chert. (Photo Courtesy of the Alutiiq Museum and Archaeological Repository)Every summer, the Alutiiq Museum and Archaeological Repository hosts a community project in Kodiak. Students and community members join in.Listen nowThis season, they are excavating a site on a little island off Near Island, which appears to be a subsistence camp from thousands of years ago.Down a trail through stands of towering Sitka spruce, across a rocky beach and along an outcropping, is a freshly dug four-by-five-meter patch of dirt where researchers believe that thousands of years ago Alutiiq people once caught and smoked cod.“So, we are at the archaeological site called Qik’rtangcuk,(which means little island in Alutiiq,)” Molly Odell, a project manager and archaeologist at the museum, said.It is day three of community archaeology and, through the filtered light of an alder canopy, the all-volunteer team of 10 is uncovering a large fire pit – about three meters across. Initial discoveries point to the site being a seasonal camp.“We have not found any evidence of houses or people living here,” Odell said. “So, it probably was more like a camp… and Patrick, my colleague, was out here hiking one time and he saw some people catching cod right from the beach, and this was just a few years ago. So, we know that you can catch cod here today, so you probably could a few thousand years ago as well.”They’ve already dug up a fist-sized rock fishing line weight, called a plummet, which indicates the site could be around 3,000 years old.Patrick Saltonstall is Curator of Archaeology at the Alutiiq Museum.“Archeology is all about using evidence to come up with what happened in the past. The story is what really matters,” Saltonstall said.As Saltonstall explained, a big part of figuring out the story comes from mapping the site. He calls out measurements: 106, 113, 110.“It is elevation in relation to data. So, we’ll be able to make a three-dimensional map of the site,” Saltonstall said.Peter Ellis is a Ph.D student in archaeology at the University of Pittsburgh who traveled all the way to Kodiak to volunteer on the project.Crew begin excavations at the Qikr’tangcut site. (Photo Courtesy of the Alutiiq Museum and Archaeological Repository)“I’ve never dug anything this old before. This is very cool to me. Again, back on the east coast, everything was 17-1800s for me,” Ellis said. “The oldest thing was probably 1400 AD. So, this is a kind of a really cool, unique opportunity. I have never seen a feature, like a smoke processing pit, that size either, before.”Ellis worked on another community archaeology dig in Dutch Harbor last summer. He’s an experienced digger who says the way you dig matters.“So, basically, with archaeology, we’re looking at time as it goes down through the soil. So, you want to dig mostly horizontally, thin layers at a time,” Ellis said. “So, if you look for any changes you might find them by digging horizontally, slowly, instead of kind of digging, you know, one deep pit straight down. So, that is where we use the trowels and the dustpans to slowly scoop dirt into our dustpans and put them in the bucket, and then we give them to our screener, who is going to run all that sediment through a screen to catch any artifacts bigger than a quarter inch or a half inch.”The very first day of the dig, volunteer Keith Bruce, a sophomore at Kodiak High school, found the artifact mentioned earlier — the fishing weight.“The first day I found a stone plummet, which was used to hold down fishing line. It was a weird feeling. You know you’re touching something someone touched 3,000 years ago, 4,000 years ago,” Bruce said. “It feels special because you can see where someone has hit it, spent time knocking it around making the groove.”But in between, it is a lot of digging until that magical moment when your eye spots something.“I’m starting to find soil that has little tiny white flecks in it, which I think are degraded shells, like clam shells, things like that,” Odell said. “And then I found some little tiny pieces of fish bones here, which is what we were hoping to find because we were thinking this was a smoking pit for fish.”And then the crew finds something else: another plummet, which Patrick Saltonstall described.“A line weight or a net weight. It’s notched, a rock here that looks kind of ugly, but it is notched on either end, and this probably would have a line around it in order to — held a rig for fishing on the bottom,” Saltonstall said. “This is how they caught the cod that they fished within here.”Another clue that, hopefully, when added together with all the others, will create a small window into the world of Alutiiq people in Kodiak thousands of years ago.KMXT intern Zane Navarro contributed to this story.
