Board Dismisses Complaint Against School Board

first_imgAn independent human rights board of inquiry has dismissed a disability complaint filed by a Sydney woman against the Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board. Sue Anne Snow, a teacher’s aide, alleged the school board discriminated against her when it refused her requests to be assigned to a school in the Sydney area because her eye condition no longer allowed her to drive to work. Ms. Snow, employed as a teacher’s aide since 1997, claimed that board officials instead assigned her to St. Joseph’s Elementary School in Sydney Mines based on her low ranking on the seniority list. But board chair Peter Rogers concluded the school board had offered Ms. Snow a fair accommodation which would have permitted her to vary her work hours in order to conform with a public transit schedule. “I find that the school board was prepared to accommodate Ms. Snow by relaxing the normal hours of work for (teaching assistants) at St. Joseph’s in order to make Ms. Snow’s hours conform conveniently to the bus schedule,” Mr. Rogers said in his decision. “I do not blame Ms. Snow for wanting to work near her home in all the circumstances, but she did not have a legal right to that outcome in my opinion.” Mr. Rogers did point out that the school board was mistaken in its view of the duty to accommodate employees with a disability, indicating that the board did need to consider the impact of a change of work location on employees with disabilities. A complaint is referred to an independent board of inquiry when the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission believes a prima facie case of discrimination is made after an investigation by a human rights officer. The chief judge of the provincial court selects a board chair from a roster and the commissioners ratify the nomination. The decision on the complaint is then in the hands of the independent board. Evidence collected during investigation of a complaint is presented at the hearing by the commission’s legal counsel. The complainant and respondent can make submissions and question witnesses. The board chair then decides whether discrimination has occurred. All parties have a right to appeal decisions of boards of inquiry to the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal. A copy of the decision is available on the website at gov.ns.ca/humanrights/decisions/2006decisions.htmlast_img read more

Karnataka rebel MLAs cant be compelled to attend Assembly SC

first_imgBengaluru/ New Delhi: The Congress-JDS government in Karnataka is hanging by a thread Wednesday ahead of the floor test on July 18 with the rebel MLAs refusing to yield after the Supreme Court held they cannot be compelled to attend the assembly session to decide the ruling coalition’s fate.As the coalition with truncated strength struggled to shore up its numbers amid dimming hopes, the Supreme Court Wednesday ruled that the 15 rebel Congress-JD(S) MLAs “ought not” to be compelled to participate in the proceedings of the ongoing session of the state Assembly. Also Read – Squadrons which participated in Balakot air strike awarded citations on IAF DayThe court verdict was interpreted in political circles as a relief for the rebel lawmakers, as it categorically said an option should be given to them as to whether they wanted to take part or stay out of the assembly proceedings. The ruling coalition had held out the threat of using the Whip against the wayward MLAs, citing the disqualification provision under the anti-defection law. Armed with the court order, the rebel Congress-JDS MLAs camping in Mumbai said there was no question of stepping back on their resignations or attending the session. Also Read – Don’t use ‘lynching’ to defame India: BhagwatAs the spotlight turned on the Supreme Court, a bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said the Speaker was free to decide on the resignations of the rebel MLAs within the time-frame decided by him. The apex court was hearing the plea of 15 rebel MLAs of Congress and JD(S), seeking a direction to the Speaker to accept their resignations from the Assembly. Karnataka Assembly Speaker K R Ramesh Kumar welcomed the Supreme Court decision, giving him the freedom to decide on the resignations of rebel MLAs, and said he would conduct himself responsibly in accordance with the principles of the Constitution. As many as 16 MLAs – 13 from the Congress and three from JD(S) – have resigned, while independent MLAs R Shankar and H Nagesh have withdrawn their support to the coalition government, putting the coalition government in jitters. Congress’ pointsman and minister D K Shivakumar maintained that the party can issue a whip to ensure the presence of all the party MLAs in the House. Happy with the verdict, Karnataka BJP president B S Yeddyurappa said it was a “moral victory” for the rebel MLAs. But the Congress in Karnataka slammed the Supreme Court order as a “bad judgment”, which seemed to protect the defectors and encourage horse-trading. See insidelast_img read more

Last chance to exit crisis

first_imgGreece’s IOBE think-tank urged Athens on Thursday to make radical reforms and stick to its bailout program, warning that it may be the country’s last chance to overcome its worst financial crisis in decades.The influential economic research institute projected the economy will contract less than it had previously estimated, helped by a better performance in the second quarter of the year, peak tourist season in Greece.In its quarterly report, IOBE said the economy would shrink by 1.5 to 2.0 per cent this year, less than forecast by Greece’s international lenders.It also said the economy could return to growth in the second half of 2016 provided the government takes steps urgently to shore up the battered banking sector, reform Greece’s ailing pension system and make the country more business-friendly.The €86 billion bailout Greece signed up to in August after protracted negotiations with its EU/IMF lenders gave the country two years to fix fiscal problems and make reforms, said IOBE, urging more political cooperation.“The continued Greek economic crisis cannot be overcome with minimal adjustments and tactics,” it said, adding that Greece needed to catch up with the rest of the eurozone. “Conditions for such a development are here, probably for one last time.”Parliament is expected to approve a set of austerity measures and reforms agreed with its EU/IMF creditors by Friday. The legislation must be passed for Athens to receive a positive first review under the bailout, which it hopes will open the way for debt relief talks.The government also wants to front-load privatisations to attract investment that will help Greece return to growth. The sale of Greek ports, airports and railways will be among its priorities, a senior government official told Reuters.The economy grew 0.7 per cent in 2014, emerging from a six-year recession during which national output shrank by a quarter, and expanded 1.1 per cent in the first six months of this year.Capital controls imposed in late June, new austerity measures in exchange for the bailout and damaged investor confidence were expected to hurt output in the second half of this year, the think tank said. But tourism revenues are expected to hit a new record high this year.“Economic growth by 1.6 per cent in the second quarter, slightly higher than expected, will mitigate recession for the full year,” IOBE said.Greece’s international lenders expect a recession of 2.3 per cent this year and 1.3 per cent in 2016.Source: Reuters, Kathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Downtown Burgerville demolished

first_imgTwo backhoes took turns tearing down Vancouver’s oldest Burgerville restaurant on Monday, while nearby onlookers mourned the spectacle. “It will be gone by the end of the day,” said Linda Bozarth, a State Farm employee who works across the street from the East Mill Plain Boulevard and D Street hamburger stand.Bozarth said people already miss the restaurant, which closed on Sept. 4. “I’ve watched people drive up and when they get out to order their shoulders just slump” when they see the restaurant is closed, Bozarth said. “But that’s progress. What are you going to do?”The Vancouver-based chain sold the site for $750,000 in December to Vancouver-based developer Elie Kassab, of Prestige Development. Its tear-down will make way for a $16 million apartment and retail project, breaking ground in late October or November. To be called Prestige Plaza, Kassab’s two-building complex will have 92 residential units that will take up the full downtown block bordered by Mill Plain Boulevard, D, C and 13th streets. Restaurant or deliIn addition to Burgerville, much of the site was formerly occupied by the old Vancouver police station, which Kassab purchased and razed in 2007.Prestige Plaza will have ground-floor retail space fronting Mill Plain Boulevard and live-work spaces — apartments with storefronts — facing 13th Street. “There will be enough room for a restaurant or a deli and coffee shop” in the retail space, Kassab said. He anticipates high demand for the space in downtown Vancouver, increasingly popular as an up-and-coming area for urban living. “We expect those spaces to lease up quickly,” Kassab said.He expects rents will start at $700 per month for living units in Prestige Plaza.‘Sad to see’Downtown office worker Dani Lucas was saddened by Monday’s Burgerville demolition.“It’s just sad to see a landmark like that go away,” said Lucas, an accounting and quality control manager at the Jackson Hewitt Tax office across Mill Plain Boulevard from the Burgerville.Lucas said she frequented Burgerville as a child, although she rarely eats at the restaurant now because of its prices.“I don’t because the economy doesn’t warrant it,” Lucas said, staring out her office window at what was left of the cinder-block building, once known for its neon signs and glass-front row of ordering windows.last_img read more

Mushers and Sled Dogs Start to Show Signs of Fatigue on the

first_imgIditarod mushers kept volunteers in the Nulato checkpoint busy overnight. Some teams that weren’t expected to stay grabbed a few hours rest in the sleepy Yukon River village, while others who could have used the rest decided to blow through.Martin Buser says his dog team didn’t have much of a challenge travelling down the Yukon River this year.“They were bored getting down that trail slow and steady and kind of a punchy, drifted trail,” he said.Jeff Kings feeds his dogs after their run into Nulato. Some teams stayed long in the sleepy village, while others pushed on down the trial. Photo by Emily Schwing, KUAC – Fairbanks.Buser’s quiet team curled up for a nap almost immediately after they arrived in Nulato.  Sonny Lindner arrived shortly after.  His dogs wolfed down the food he offered.  He says his dog team is showing signs of fatigue from the early rough trail.“That trail was really rough at the start and once you get on the good going, and everybody starts trotting right along then all those places that got sore earlier start showing up,” he said.Lindner spent his eight hour mandatory rest massaging sore shoulders and wrapping sore wrists. He could have waited to rest long in Kaltag, but he says Nulato is much quieter.Checkpoint volunteers were surprised when Aliy Zirkle announced she planned to stay for a few hours in. Her team came in alert, tails wagging. She stopped to make what she calls a “significant force reduction.”“I had to reduce my squad by two dogs: Joe Schmoe and Scruggs, so we made a significant equipment reduction. I just lost about 40 pounds off the back of my sled,” she said.Zirkle left behind all kinds of gear she doesn’t think she’ll need.  She says 12 dogs is actually the perfect number, plus it’s eight fewer feet to booty, two personalities less to deal with and a little less food to carry. As for the river travel, Zirkle says what’s normally a monotonous run seemed to go by quickly.“Yeah, I don’t feel like the river’s been that long for me this time,” Zirkle said.As teams come off the Yukon in Kaltag, they’ll tackle what is a reportedly snow free trail in place all the way to Unalakleet, but that’s nothing new for mushers this year.last_img read more

Internet Gutter Nazi Furries

first_img <> Online is a strange and terrifying place. It’s enabled us to connect with one another, advance the causes of science and culture, and unite the world with a glowing net of data. It’s also enabled people with very… particular interests to find each other. In this new weekly series, we’ll be dipping into the Internet Gutter – the strange subcultures and weird worlds lurking in the dark pockets of the World Wide Web.Nazi FurriesFurry subculture has been an organized “thing” since at least the early 1980s, starting out at science fiction conventions and spreading like wildfire as technology allowed them to connect with each other.The furry fandom has been a popular target of mockery on the Internet for as long as we can remember. The thing with furries is that the vast majority of them are decent people who just get way too into cartoon animals.AdChoices广告But then there are the ones that are actual Nazis.Arbeit Mach FurThe Nazi furry movement has been active for some time, at least since 2005. As with many awful things, it first congregated around a community on LiveJournal called “NaziFurs.” The community claimed to be anti-racist and not endorse Hitler’s ideology – instead, what they liked about Nazis seemed to be primarily the uniforms.Furry culture is all about peacocking (no pun intended) – showing off your “fursuit” costume, or commissioned artwork of your animal “fursona.” So it’s not surprising that a subset of them would be into the crisp, stylish uniforms of the Nazis. But what makes it weird is how they simultaneously disavow everything Hitler and his crew stood for while copying them exactly.The LiveJournal community made a big deal about banning any member who posted anti-Semitic or hateful material, but that doesn’t mean that Nazi Furs were all sweetness and light. In 2007, furry artist Jim Groat posted a story about being told to “Piss off Jew-Boy” at AnthroCon, the largest furry convention, by an attendee in a swastika armband.Second ReichIf there’s perversion to be done, it’ll happen in Second Life. The long-lived virtual world lets users act out all kinds of fantasies, and that includes being a Nazi furry. In 2007, a group called “Furzi” was organized on the service.Out of their headquarters, “Das Waffenamt,” the group sold a wide variety of virtual Nazi items, including anti-Semitic propaganda posters and uniforms for virtual avatars to wear. This quickly brought them to the attention of the Zionist Association of Second Life, and later the Second Life Jewish Defense League. The Jewish groups protested the furries responded with “free speech” and things quickly got ugly.The Furzis ran a script to permanently ban any Jewish Second Life user from their property. The Jews retaliated by composing a massive report on Furzi activity and submitting it to Linden Labs, the company that runs the virtual world. Eventually, Furzi leader “Spotz Spork” was permanently banned from the service, Das Waffenamnt was destroyed, and the group was scattered to the winds.The Trump ConnectionPlenty of ink has been spilled about Donald Trump’s connection with Nazi and white supremacist groups. It’s not surprising that the upstart political movement called the “alt-right,” which gleefully dabbles in anti-Semitic tropes and Nazi imagery, would attract some furries to his campaign.The Furred Reich is a blog dedicated to promoting a book series where a young German soldier wakes up in a parallel universe full of anthropomorphic animals. The author has been quite vocal about his right-wing leanings, penning a blog post entitled Why Nazi Furs Should Stop Apologizing. In it, he argues that Nazi groups shouldn’t apologize for the Holocaust because… the Communist pogroms were worse.That’s not really a compelling argument, but most Nazi arguments aren’t. It’s hard to tell how much of “alt-fur” is actual Trump support and how much is heavy layers of irony, but does it really matter?The VolksgalleryWant to see more? Here’s a selection of Nazi furry artwork from a variety of sources. Mostly DeviantArt, for obvious reasons.last_img read more

Forgetting Airplane Mode on Your Phone Could Cost You

first_img Hydrogen-Powered Plane Can Fly 20 Passengers Up to 500 MilesAirbnb For Work Simplifies Business Travel If you’re a frequent traveler, then you may have heard it before: you have to switch off your devices and turn on “airplane mode” for the duration of a flight. But sometimes, you forget, and it’s no big deal, right?One passenger learned the hard way that forgetting to switch on airplane or flight mode on his phone can be a big deal — or a big bill from his provider — to the tune of a few hundred dollars.The Irish Times was contacted by a passenger, who accidentally left his phone on when it was in the overhead compartment of an Aer Lingus flight to the US. Weeks after arriving, he received a bill for nearly $300 from AT&T, his phone provider, according to the publication.The passenger incurred charges due to the phone connecting to to the flight’s roaming network.iPhone and Apple Watch in ‘airplane mode.’ (Photo Credit: Apple)The charges were racked up by “antennas installed on the plane that operate outside an unlimited international roaming plan,” AT&T told the Irish Times. The antennas can “automatically connect with phones that are not in flight mode and run up charges – even when the phones are not in use.”Aer Lingus told Lonely Planet that travelers are advised to put their phones into airplane mode for safety reasons, or they can choose to pay and register to use in-flight Wi-Fi. Leaving it on, however, could connect to the flight’s roaming network.“If a guest’s ‘Airplane Mode’ is OFF, the mobile device may connect to the in-flight roaming network and the guest will be billed by their home operator for any usage,” a spokeswoman for the Irish airline told Lonely Planet. “When using a mobile phone service you are roaming as if you were abroad. It’s the home operator that sets prices and bill customers. Reputable mobile operators send a pricing SMS when a device connects to such a network, on the ground or in the air, to ensure the user is aware of their error.”With the busy holiday travel season underway, you may be thinking about ways to maximize your time on your flight with your smartphone. Just be careful that the “airplane mode” is switched on or you might be feeling a little less holiday cheer when the bill comes.More on Geek.com:Google’s ‘Find My Device’ Will Ensure You’re Never Without Your Android Phone$2,700 Cellular Bill Racked up on SIM Card Stolen From a StorkSuspect Remotely Wipes iPhone X While It Sits in Police Evidence Stay on targetlast_img read more

New passion for thrill seekers

first_imgRiding through craggy terrain, dirt roads and treacherous paths are like child’s play for  mountain bikers. And this  new adventure sport is a  trend that is catching up among thrill seekers for that extra adrenaline rush.‘Mountain bicycling challenges every bit of you and requires perfect synchronisation of mind and body. It tests your endurance and willpower. Every time your body gives up, your mind encourages you to pedal harder,’ said Vamini Sethi, a mountain biking enthusiast. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Sethi, who owns two high-end bikes – Trek 2.1 and Trek 4300 – said the thrill keeps all of them going.Like her, there are many biking enthusiasts who are getting into this niche area for the love of the thrill and the challenge it offers, Sethi said.The numbers are slowly growing, despite it being an expensive hobby.Some of the credit for making mountain biking popular goes to the Himalayan Adventure Sports and Tourism Promotion Association (HASTPA).Formed in 2005, it is the brainchild of Mohit Sood, who with the support of a British friend decided to venture into this unknown territory.Ever since then, he has been successfully organising the MTB Himalaya international biking challenge, a gruelling seven-day trail from Shimla to Kullu, covering 550 kilometres. ‘Mountain bicycling is not everyone’s cup of tea.

Housing Affordability Will Drive FirstTime Buyers to Suburbs in 2016 Zillow Says

first_img in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News, Origination First-Time Buyers Housing Affordability suburbs Zillow 2015-11-30 Staff Writer November 30, 2015 728 Views Housing Affordability Will Drive First-Time Buyers to Suburbs in 2016, Zillow Sayscenter_img First-time buyers may want to turn their attentions toward suburbs in 2016. As home prices are showing no signs of slowing down, affordability becomes a larger issue when purchasing a home.Housing affordability, which is expected to lead 2016 housing trends, will be a major bump in the road for potential first-time homebuyers in the next year. Meanwhile, fewer wallet-friendly options near city centers will make the suburbs appear more desirable to consumers, a report from Zillow showed.In addition, Zillow reported that high rents will also pose an issue in 2016, forcing more young renters to hold off on purchasing a home for a longer period of time.”Rents will continue to increase at a brisk rate in 2016, but many potential first-time buyers are living in hot markets where buying a home is really expensive,” said Dr. Svenja Gudell, Zillow’s chief economist. “In 2016, we’ll start to see more people in hot coastal markets forced to move farther from the core of the city to find housing. When they get there, they’ll be looking for amenity-rich suburbs–mini-cities, with walkable cores and an urban feel.”Dr. Gudell added, “As renters gradually transition into homeowners, the historically low homeownership rate should stop falling quite as quickly as it has been. However, the median age of first-time homebuyers–already the highest it has ever been at about 33–will climb higher. Millennials want to buy, but they are waiting longer than previous generations.”Zillow also noted that the possibility of an interest rate increase from the Federal Reserve could further reduce the mortgage affordability the market has been experiencing with historically low rates. This will make “some homeowners think twice about selling, and many of them will decide to remodel their current homes instead.”According to Zillow, in 2016, the median age of first-time homebuyers will rise to new highs as millennials hold off on buying a home.In addition, home value growth is expected to surpass incomes in 2016, particularly among low-income Americans. The bottom third of all incomes for consumers will not be able to afford even the least expensive houses on the market.Next year is forecast to bring the least affordable median rents in history, Zillow says. Potential buyers will seek refuge in city outskirts, where there are walkable suburbs with an urban feel and good city access, as affordable city center housing declines.Zillow’s latest Home Price Expectations Survey showed that over 100 economic and housing experts predicted that home values will grow about 3.5 percent in 2016.Click here to read the full report.
