Alberta says it will invest in Indigenous Peoples to build green economy

first_img(Alberta Premier Rachel Notley waves after her government’s swearing-in. APTN/file)Brandi Morin APTN National NewsThe Alberta Minister of Environment said her government is committed to ensuring Indigenous People aren’t left out of plans to kick-start the creation of a green economy.Environment Minister Shannon Phillips stressed Alberta is making a priority of making “meaningful” strides within Indigenous communities on the renewable energy front.She said that the governments’ nation-to-nation relationship ambitions includes building capacity with Indigenous Peoples in order to engage in meaningful participation and consultation.“We remain committed to ensuring that we are building capacity in Indigenous communities so that we can build an energy economy that comprises all of energy, not just oil and gas,” said Phillips.Funding for capacity building spills out into economic opportunities that she said the government wants to ensure Indigenous People have equal access to in the expected renewable energy boom.“What we want to make sure of is, as we build a greener economy, one based on renewable energy that the new economy doesn’t look like the old,” she said. “In that it does not replicate the social and economic exclusion of Indigenous people that we’ve seen for generations in Alberta and that we are actually meaningfully ensuring economic growth, prosperity, and social inclusion throughout our process.”No specific amount of money is set aside as of yet for the task. Phillips said they’re still in talks with chiefs and others within governments on how to move forward. However, she did make mention that conversations on resource revenue sharing are happening.The province recently announced their new climate change strategy bannering itself as a global leader in climate action.Recommendations by an independent review panel included a section on Aboriginal components which Phillips said she fully supports.There are also plans to focus on incorporating Indigenous knowledge into the provinces climate change action plan.“From my department in Environment that has a lot to do with how we ensure that traditional and ecological knowledge is appropriately integrated and used to plan resource development and communities,” said Phillips. “Those are pieces that are very important to my department in environment as we work through a lot of regional planning process and land use frameworks to make sure that not only are we getting the traditional ecological knowledge parts—not only making sure that those are in order—but also to ensure that we’ve got adequate capacity in place for traditional land use, co-managements of natural areas and other ways that we know that we can do better than the previous Conservative government.”Phillips added that she is serious about implementing the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) into her portfolio as mandated to all Alberta NDP MLA’s by Premier Rachel Notley last summer.Phillips is expected to join Notley at the UN climate conference in Paris that began Monday. Phillips said she will be supporting local Indigenous voices at the international level.“Because I think that that’s an important way that Alberta and Canada can ensure that we are moving forward in ways that are respectful of Treaty and respectful of the new economy that we’re all building together.”bmorin@aptn.ca@songstress28last_img read more

Huawei Wants Morocco to be the First Country to Launch 5G…

Rabat – Huawei, a global provider of information and communications technology infrastructure and devices, outlined the goal for its Moroccan operations at the 9th annual North African suppliers conference in Skhirat, south of Rabat today, Thursday July 18.“We are the [world] leaders in 5G, and we want to be the leader in Morocco,” said Chakib Achour, the marketing and strategy director of Huawei in Morocco.“We want the Kingdom to be the first to launch 5G in Africa,” he specified. According to Achour, the company is now only waiting for the green light from the government. 5G is the new generation of mobile internet connectivity, which promises much faster data upload and download speeds, wider coverage and more stable connections.Internet is important to Moroccans. According to a report released this week by the Moroccan National Telecommunications Regulations Agency (ANRT), access to the internet by Moroccan households has increased three-fold over the last eight years. 74.2% of households are now equipped with internet.Read Also:Telecommunications Report Finds 76% of Moroccans Use SmartphonesAccording to ANRT, the leading reason behind the need for an internet connection is  “entertainment” (including games and social networks), with Whatsapp and Facebook being the most used apps.  Moroccan telecommunications provider Inwi announced in March that it was ready to launch 5G. “5G is a reality for Inwi. It is a reality that we anticipated and prepared for through modernising out infrastructure […]. Inwi has modern and agile infrastructure, capable of adapting to all technical evolutions, now and in the future,” declared Fadoua Laaroussi, the performance director at Inwi, in a press release.Huawei has stated that Inwi is its “strategic partner in the North Africa region.”“Inwi is the first operator who has signed an agreement with Huawei for the 5G pilot projects […],” Huawei marketing vice-president Eric Liu said.Huawei is not the only player on the Morocco 5G field. In March, Huawei competitor Ericsson organised a live 5G demonstration at Maroc Telecom headquarters in Rabat, showcasing the technology’s capabilities.Huawei is firmly present in Morocco, with, according to Achour, an annual revenue of MAD 3 billion, reports Moroccan news source Aujourd’hui le Maroc. Huawei works with the three major local telecommunication providers: Maroc Telecom, Inwi, and Orange.Expansion into Africa might be Huawei’s next big move, as its future trade relations with the US are currently uncertain. In early May, US President Donald Trump put Huawei on the “entity list,” on the basis of national security concerns, as part of a complex diplomatic battle between the US and China. The list essentially bars US companies from trading with Huawei without a special license. In early July Trump reportedly eased sanctions, although confusion remains on future trade relationships. read more

Small businesses in Armenia to receive boost from UN rural development fund

The United Nations International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) announced today that it will spend over $12 million for a new project in Armenia to help develop microenterprises with potential for rapid growth.The Farmer Market Access Programme will provide loans to rural and peri-urban Armenians to develop profitable on- and off-farm small businesses who do not qualify for conventional bank loans.“Once they are able to access credit, poor rural producers will have many more opportunities to develop profitable and commercially viable products and services all along the market value chain,” said Henning Pedersen, IFAD’s country programme manager for Armenia.An increase in the number of rural enterprises will also spur job creation, he added.IFAD will contribute $11.9 million in loans and $500,000 in grants, while the OPEC Fund for International Development will supply $10 million. Other co-financers for the $32.2 million programme include the Armenian Government and financial institutions.Applicants for the project’s funds must show that their prospective enterprise will generate sustainable income growth among target groups, including farmers as well as unemployed, under-employed and self-employed people. Preference will be given to those who engage women as suppliers and employees.The project also aims to arm participants with the knowledge, technology and infrastructure to help them profit from domestic and export markets.Improving access to roads, small-scale irrigation and village gas supplies are also emphasized by the programme, with participants contributing a minimum of 10 per cent in cash or kind to offset infrastructure costs.In an innovative move, the project’s main financing instrument will be a venture capital fund, the Fund for Rural Economic Development in Armenia (FREDA). 8 January 2008The United Nations International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) announced today that it will spend over $12 million for a new project in Armenia to help develop microenterprises with potential for rapid growth. read more

Opinion Greatest regret as an Ohio State student – not watching Kyle

OSU then-sophomore Kyle Snyder gets his hand raised during a meet against Nebraska at St. John Arena on Jan. 17. Credit: Lantern file photoThere are more lies than truths told at family functions. From dinner to shooting the bull afterward, most of the stories shared never happened, but they’re harmless lies.In my family, that “shooting the bull” devolves into the men sitting around trying to prove who knows best in remembering some of the most dominant Ohio State sports legends in their lifetimes.They remember watching from the nosebleeds, or through their first television, all the miraculous things Archie Griffin, Eddie George, Jerry Lucas, Jimmy Jackson and Scoonie Penn did while at Ohio State.I’m in my final year as an undergraduate at Ohio State, and I imagine decades from now when I partake in the debate of the greatest athletes to grace Columbus, it’ll go something like this: “Let me tell you about the most complete, dominant athlete in the world who won a gold medal at the Olympics while he wrestled in college.“And let me tell you how I never saw Kyle Snyder in person and I didn’t watch him nearly enough on TV.”When you’re told college will be “the best years of your life,” it’s generally referring to the experiences gained, lessons learned and friends made that last a lifetime. I’ve had plenty of those, and outside of trivial matters, I wouldn’t want my time at Ohio State to be any different than what it has been: except for a chance to watch Snyder every moment I could have.All of that is the truth.Snyder will wrestle for the final time at home as an Ohio State Buckeye Sunday in front of what might be a sellout crowd at the Schottenstein Center. And it will be another opportunity — like many other Ohio State students — I will miss seeing a man who is sure to be on the Mount Rushmore of Ohio State athletes, with the likes of Jesse Owens and Jack Nicklaus.It would take me more than this entire column to list his individual achievements, so a quick glance at his university bio should suffice for why Snyder will be remembered at Ohio State as one of its all-time legendary athletes.OSU junior heavyweight Kyle Snyder lifts Wisconsin’s Connor Medbery before slamming him to the mat for a takedown in the heavyweight finals of the 2017 NCAA Division I Wrestling Tournament in St. Louis, Missouri. OSU placed second, behind Penn State. Credit: OSU AthleticsIf there’s one moment that tipped the scales toward Snyder’s improbable career, it was becoming the youngest world champion in USA wrestling history during summer 2015, between his freshman and sophomore seasons. That following spring, he beat two-time defending national champion Nick Gwiazdowski at Madison Square Garden to capture his first NCAA title.All he did a few months later was win a gold medal as a 20-year-old at the Olympics in Rio De Janeiro.That should’ve been more than enough to convince me that Snyder had to be seen in person, or I’d regret it for the rest of my life. Only one other athlete from Ohio State had gone to the Olympics while a student before Snyder — it was Lucas. He was clearly dominant on the international stage, so why would I deprive myself from watching an Olympic champion in person, while I had the chance?That’s just not something a student gets to do at his own school.Yet, when given the chance again, when he announced he would return for his senior season, I didn’t give it a second thought outside of, “Oh, that’s cool.” The mistake was mine for not watching Snyder.I never paid attention to wrestling before I enrolled at Ohio State — and I still don’t. That’s not to say that I don’t find the sport entertaining or fascinating — I do. Wrestling season aligns with college basketball, which has always been my sport of choice for entertainment. However, a casual sports fan should be able to appreciate Snyder’s greatness and unequivocal skill at the collegiate level. A casual fan should have taken the time to sit in a mostly empty arena and watch Snyder’s unparalleled display of power.I watched him on TV win gold and show off the American flag draped on his back to the entire arena in Rio. Just last week, I stopped what I was doing to watch Snyder finish a fall at Rutgers on TV. It’s honestly quite funny watching Snyder give his opponents false hope by allowing them to stand up and earn a point for an escape before Snyder buries them again.But here I am on the eve of Snyder’s final match in Columbus with Ohio State, knowing I won’t be in attendance tomorrow because I’ll be heading to a concert in Kentucky. The little I know to be true about him will sound like false tales to whomever will hear me talk about all Snyder accomplished in his time at Ohio State.“Yes, all of that is true,” I will say. “And I missed most of it.” read more

Drinkdrivers have fear of missing out says campaign to target men who

A second drink before driving doubles your chances of being in a fatal collision & missing out on it all #FOMOpints pic.twitter.com/NEMibKlj9d— THINK! road safety (@THINKgovuk) December 1, 2016 Road safety minister Andrew Jones said the crime, which kills five people every week, “destroys families and ruins lives”.”This Christmas we are specifically targeting the biggest perpetrators of this devastating crime – young men. But our message to everyone remains the same: don’t drink and drive,” he said.The campaign coincides with a month-long police operation to combat drink and drug driving during the festive period.Forces around the country will target known hotspots to detect people who are on the road illegally.In December last year, police forces administered 110,226 breath tests, of which 5,543 were positive, failed or refused, according to the National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC).Some 1,888 drug screening tests were conducted during the same period, with almost half turning out positive. “Don’t #drive under the influence of #drink or #drugs. Even a very small amount can affect your ability to drive safely.” @ChiefGlosPolice— NPCC (@PoliceChiefs) December 1, 2016 Drink-driving is fuelled by the “fear of missing out”, the government has suggested, as it launches a campaign targeting young men who commit the crime to avoid not being able to go on a night out.Nearly two-thirds (62 per cent) of all drink-drivers who die in collisions are young men, according to Department for Transport figures that also showed that 20 per cent of the age group had driven after having two or more drinks, despite this doubling their chances of being involved in a fatality.Their “fear of missing out” – or FOMO – will be targeted in a new advert that will be released every day on Facebook, Twitter and Spotify during the month-long THINK! campaign launched on Thursday.The adverts, which show a pint of beer with FOMO written on it, aim to make it clear to young men that they have plenty to live for the following day, which they may not see if they choose to have a second drink.center_img Research by price comparison website MoneySuperMarket found that for the second year running Crewe has the highest proportion of motorists with drink or drug driving convictions.The Cheshire town has a rate of 1.66 convictions per 1,000 drivers, according to the study.

Keep supporting team in transition Dhoni to diaspora

We are in a phase where we are going through a lot of changes but with all due support of yours, we will keep doing well,” Dhoni said in an interaction at the Siddhivinayak Temple here on Sunday.Dhoni, accompanied by his wife Sakshi and former Deputy Chief Minister of Jharkhand Sudesh Kumar Mahto, performed puja at the temple, which is under construction and will open to the public later this year. Also Read – A league of his own!Dressed casually in jeans and t-shirt, Dhoni said it is “a first of a kind” visit to the US for him, since whenever he comes to America, he does not do any public events and only spends private time with family.“I have been to different places. Most of them have been cricket-playing nations like England and Australia. This was a one of a kind (visit) in the US,” he said referring to his public appearance at the temple.He said it was an “eye-opener” for him to see how the diaspora has embraced US culture but at the same time held on to their Indian heritage. Also Read – Domingo named new Bangladesh cricket coach“This is something that is really appreciable. Having immigrated to the US many years ago but to still be 200 per cent Indian and still acknowledge and respect the traditions of the country you are in, I feel is something that everybody needs to learn,” he said.Dhoni also voiced appreciation for the way the first and second generation Indian-Americans have taught their younger children about various aspects of life.“That is something I really appreciate,” he said.Thanking the gathering for the “warm welcome”, Dhoni, who did not interact with the media, said it is an honour for him to be present at the temple. Dhoni noted that cricket is not very popular in the US and on his visits to the country, he often has to explain to those who don’t know about the game that it is similar to baseball.last_img read more

The Priciest Rents in the US Are Somewhere Youve Probably Never Heard

first_imgFebruary 19, 2014 The most expensive city in the United States to rent an apartment does not boast mystically scenic views, particularly trendy locales or soaring cityscapes. Rather, the title is held by a small town in North Dakota called Williston, where rents are rocketing in response to an oil boom.According to a study by Apartment Guide, Williston produces more oil than anywhere else in the country — and it seems as though “apartments can’t be built fast enough” to accommodate the vast number of workers herding to the area, many of whom take home six-figure salaries.Related: From Chickens to Caskets — 8 Unique Rental BusinessesA 700-square-foot, one-bedroom apartment in Williston fetches, on average, $2,394 — which is far more than comparable rentals in San Francisco, $1,776, and New York, $1,504, according to the study.Rents are so high, in fact, that the city recently formed an Affordable Housing Committee, reports Time, in hopes of encouraging cheaper rents.A 2010 census pegged the then-quiet and predominantly agricultural town’s population at 14,700 — a number that has more than doubled today. As a result, infrastructure is being put on a fast track, and many owners of existing properties are increasing their rents.Related: Successful in Pizza? How About Oil ChangesOne particularly popular feature of new residences being built in town? Many feature a “mudroom” in front, says Apartment Guide, where workers can remove their dirty shoes before entering their homes. (After all, in this oil industry hub, the ratio of men to women in Williston is 12 to one.)Located in the northwest corner of the state — on Montana’s border — Williston doesn’t offer much in the way of stimulus, reports ABC News.

Where are Homeowners Spending the Most on Mortgage

first_img in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News Mortgage affordability is at its worst point in a decade, according to Zillow.  A new report from the company finds that buying and owning a home in Q1 was at its most burdensome for homeowners since the second quarter 2009. According to Zillow, the share of income needed for monthly mortgage payments on the median U.S. home increased to 17.1 percent from Q4 of 2017 and compares to 2009’s 17.5 percent in the year’s second quarter.“Back then, the trend was different,” Zillow reported. “Mortgages were becoming more affordable as home prices and interest rates fell in tandem during the early years of the recession, well after the share of income needed to afford the typical home peaked at 25.4 percent in 2006 during the height of the bubble.”According to Zillow, “the affordability edge has worn so thin in nine of the 35 largest housing markets that mortgage payments are now a bigger financial burden than they were historically.”Following the most recent trends involving least affordable markets, the West Coast leads the pack in burdened households. According to Zillow, In the Bay Area, the least affordable metro in Q1, homeowners, and renters in Q1 paid as much as 68 percent of their income towards household expenses; and in San Jose, mortgage holders paid 51 percent towards mortgage payments. That’s high even for San Jose, where the historical average is around 35 percent.“If mortgage rates reach 5 percent next year, as many economists expect,” Zillow reported, “home shoppers in an additional seven markets would face greater mortgage burdens than buyers did historically.”Another figure from Q1 is that the median U.S. home was worth 3.54 times the typical household income. Between 1985 and 2000, that figure was 2.78, according to Zillow. The issue stems from the one-two punch of rising mortgage rates and continuing home value appreciation. But, Zillow reported, “mortgage rates and housing costs represent one side of the affordability coin; income is the other.”While home values have recovered nationally, wages have been slower to bounce back, Zillow reported. And a possibly ominous trend is that the last time the price-to-income ratio was this high was in the second quarter of 2008, “when it was 3.63, on its way down from housing-boom highs.”Times are even harder for renters. The typical renter paid 28.8 percent of U.S. median income in the first quarter, Zillow reported. That’s up from 26 percent between 1985 and 2000, but down from a peak of about 30 percent in the second quarter of 2015.

TEMPE Ariz — Back when the Arizona Cardinals won

first_imgTEMPE, Ariz. — Back when the Arizona Cardinals won back-to-back NFC West crowns and advanced to Super Bowl XLIII, they did so with one of the best offenses in the NFL.That offense, though, featured one of the league’s worst running games.In 2008, while Arizona was fourth in total offense and tied for third in points, it was 32nd in rushing yards. In 2009, while the Cardinals were 14th in total offense and 11th in points, they were 28th in rushing yards. 0 Comments   Share   It was only the beginning.Now in his second year, Floyd has caught 54 passes for a team-best 860 yards with four touchdowns. He’s on pace to become the first player not named Fitzgerald to lead the team in receiving yards since Boldin in 2006, and his emergence over the last three weeks – where he’s caught 18 passes for 396 yards and two touchdowns – has given the offense a dynamic it has not seen since, well, Boldin.“There’s no doubt,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said when asked if Floyd is developing into a 1B to Fitzgerald’s 1A. “He’s emerged, and three weeks in a row at that level is kind of a breakout.“That’s consistency you’re looking at, and he’s playing hurt. That’s even better.”Floyd’s “breakout” has opened up an offense that has slowly started to find its footing. The Cardinals have averaged 28.4 points over their last five games, and have moved up to 18th in the league in total offense and 14th in passing yards. “Mike has been playing very well,” Palmer said. “When you come in to play us you kind of have to decide who you really want to focus on defensively, because both of them (Floyd and Fitzgerald) have made a ton of plays, play after play, whether they’re doubled or singled. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The key to their success was as obvious as it was fun to watch: A passing game led by Kurt Warner that featured a dynamic wide receiver duo in Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin.During the two-year stretch, Fitzgerald caught 193 passes for 2,523 yards and 25 touchdowns, while Boldin accounted for 173 receptions, 2,062 yards and 15 touchdowns. The team’s offense has taken a substantial dip since Warner retired and Boldin was traded to Baltimore, as the Cardinals have struggled to find a capable quarterback while continually searching for a number two receiver to complement Fitzgerald.While Carson Palmer is not reminding anyone of Warner, he’s on pace to throw for 4,252 yards and 25 touchdowns, which would rank third and sixth, respectively, on the team’s all-time list. And it appears the Cardinals may have found their new Boldin, too. Michael Floyd, the second-year pro out of Notre Dame, was selected 13th overall in the 2012 draft with the hopes that he would develop into a player who could alleviate some of the pressure Fitzgerald deals with as the team’s primary threat in the passing game. His rookie season was fairly nondescript, as he caught just 45 passes for 562 yards and two touchdowns, though he finished the season with an impressive eight catch, 166-yard, one touchdown performance against San Francisco. “Anquan is Anquan and Mike is Mike, let’s put it like that,” Fitzgerald said. “They both are really good players. I had a lot of quality time with Q earlier in my career and now later in my career with Mike.“I see a lot of the same similarities in terms of the toughness and the meanness out of both of those guys – they’re both really mean dudes.”Fitzgerald, with a smile, added that he’s nicer than Boldin and Floyd, saying, “You would like to have me at your Thanksgiving table much more than you’d rather have those two.”Floyd didn’t disagree with his teammate.“My mindset is trying to beat that defender over me, getting my job done,” Floyd said. “We can be best friends off the field. I can have known him since I was five years old. But as soon as we get on that field, it’s a different man comes out of me.”Different is not a bad thing, especially when it is similar to something the Cardinals and their fans already know. “Run after catch stuff, they’ve both done. They’ve won down in the red zone. They’ve made plays all over the field — third down, red zone, short yardage. It’s been huge for us and it makes it easier to call plays, it makes the running game easier, it helps everything.”Floyd has earned a reputation for being a good blocker, too, though his shoulder injury has affected that part of his game. But it hasn’t stopped him from his main job, which is catching passes.“Me being a big, physical guy, as much as us wide receivers don’t want to get hit, they really don’t want to hit us either,” Floyd told the Big Red Rage. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?The 6-foot-2, 220-pound Floyd’s game is similar to that of Boldin during the latter player’s prime. At 6-foot-1 and 220 pounds, Boldin excelled at catching the ball in traffic and then bouncing off defensive backs that were unable to bring him down. One of the few guys with the team who could make the comparison between the current Cardinal and the former Cardinal is Fitzgerald, who is on pace to score the most touchdowns he’s had in a season since 2009.
