National inquiry hears from one of its own employees

first_imgLucy Scholey APTN NewsThe daughter of Anna Mae Aquash became the first employee of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls to publicly testify on Tuesday.Denise Pictou-Maloney, the inquiry’s community liaison officer for Nova Scotia, spent two hours describing the high-profile case of her mother.Aquash, a Mi’kmaw woman and member of the American Indian Movement (AIM), was found dead on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota on Feb. 24, 1976. Two members of AIM, John Graham and Arlo Looking Cloud, were convicted for her murder. Thelma Rios pleaded guilty to being an accessory to kidnapping.Pictou-Maloney testified how the perpetrators kidnapped, beat and raped her mother before taking a gun to her head. They then lied to AIM members about her murder, alleging that FBI officers killed her.Pictou-Maloney also watched as Amnesty International and the Assembly of First Nations (AFN) publicly supported AIM hero Leonard Peltier, who’s serving time in connection to the murder of two F.B.I. agents. Pictou-Maloney believes Peltier protected Aquash’s killers and was involved in certain incidents leading up to her death. AFN National Chief Perry Bellegarde later apologized.“I felt betrayed. I felt alone. I felt hopeless,” Aquash said.Commissioner Michèle Audette made a tearful plea for forgiveness for having previously supported these organizations.“I learned something today,” she said. “I was supporting something without knowing that didn’t respect your mom.”Pictou-Maloney later said she felt justified hearing Audette’s response.“I think we get caught up in the big picture sometimes,” she said. “We’re not focused on the little details that can really make a difference to families.”She and her sister were small enough to sit in the same chair when their father sat them down to break the news of Aquash’s death. But the girls wouldn’t believe their mom wasn’t ever coming home for Christmas again. They knew she was a fighter and assumed she was in hiding.“She was our Wonder Woman,” said Pictou-Maloney.Almost 28 years after she was buried south of the border, Pictou-Maloney and her sister had their mother’s remains dug up from the earth and moved back home. She’s now buried in the Mi’kmaq community of Sipeknekatik.last_img read more

Morocco Suspends Radio Program After Complaints of ‘Charlatanism’

The Superior Council for Audiovisual Communications (CSCA) has suspended the Moroccan radio program “Bismilah Ouraqik,” broadcast by Moroccan radio channel MFM, after complaints of “charlatanism.”The Moroccan Federation for Consumer Rights made a complaint to CSCA about the  program for promoting charlatanism and exploiting listeners in a way that could put their health in jeopardy.During May, the radio program gave listeners “cures” to a number of health ailments including “sterility,” “mental health problems,” “food poisoning,” “hemorrhages,” and “colon problems.” As an example, on March 12, the program told listeners that “for women who have problems with bleeding or lethargy […] drink a mixture of orange blossom water and home-made vinegar, as well as Roqya (blessed water).”Read also: HACA Warns 2M’s Masterchef Maroc for ‘Clandestine Advertisement’The program also gave “cures” to some listeners who shared their health issues with the radio station by SMS and telephone.To get rid of djinns (evil spirits), the program suggested drinking rose water and olive oil and eating nigella seeds, either before breakfast or after dinner.In its decision published on May 23, the regulator CSCA found that the radio program’s content was inciting listeners to adopt health practices that could be dangerous to their health. As a result, the CSCA suspended the program for one week.The regulator expressed concern that the radio program was “normalizing” non-medical treatment in a way that could lead listeners to neglect professional medical advice.CSCA had issued a warning to MFM radio channel on January 9, about previous episodes on similar topics. read more

UN agency spotlights tourisms potential to promote conservation

With the rate of ice breaking off icebergs and glaciers picking up pace, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is calling for an innovative way to help conserve the Arctic’s unique habitat: sustainable tourism.In Svalbard – a picturesque archipelago in northern Norway which is the closest that visitors can usually get to the North Pole, 1,000 kilometres away – a joint campaign by conservation groups and tour operators in the 1990s has helped set up protected areas and new laws protecting biodiversity.Polar bears and other native species now have protected status in Svalbard, with the hunting of many species being outlawed.In a bid to replicate these successes, UNEP and its partner GRID-Arendal in Norway plan to examine how sustainable tourism can help to support the management and development of protected areas.According to Peter Prokosch, Director of GRID-Arendal, the polar region is one of the most persuasive examples of the need to invest in protecting the planet.“This is because the polar regions are the ideal place to see the link between the impact of climate change and biodiversity,” he said.Later this month, UNEP and GRID-Arendal will host a study expedition to Svalbard for conservationists, journalists and members of the public, with a tour of Antarctica to teach people about the development of marine protected areas in the Southern Hemisphere slated for November.They also plan to create an interactive map of tourist destinations engaged in conservation work to allow travelers to view a destination’s green credentials before embarking on their trip. 13 August 2010With the rate of ice breaking off icebergs and glaciers picking up pace, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is calling for an innovative way to help conserve the Arctic’s unique habitat: sustainable tourism. read more

Duo in City Hall attempted murder robbery under caution – investigator

Marisco GeorgeAs the trial of Marisco George and her alleged accomplice, John Caesar, continued at the High Court, Police investigator at the time Cedric Gravesande testified on Monday that both of the accused persons admitted guilt under caution by Police.However, these revelations seemed to ignite an animated Caesar who sprang to his feet as the Policeman continued testifying. This was after he appeared to mouth at least one obscenity to Gravesande.“This man is very Pythagoras, Judge,” Caesar told presiding Judge Sandil Kissoon in reference to Gravesande.This comment prompted light laughter, but it was not too clear what he actually meant as Pythagoras was an ancient Greek philosopher. Moreover, Pythagoras Theorem is a principle in Mathematics. The Judge told the defendant to relay his objections through his attorney, Brandon De Santos.Caesar and George are both accused of attempting to murder businesswoman Dhanmatee Phulchand in the course of a violent robbery committed at Reshma’s Collection Store in the City Mall in Georgetown on July 4, 2009. Earlier in the trial, Phulchand identified the duo as her attackers, having recognised both of them as they used to hang out at the Mall.At Monday’s hearing, the Police witness told the 12-member jury that he was present when number one accused George gave her statement to Police at the Brickdam Police Station as well as when Caesar gave his one year later in June 2010 at the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) Headquarters.According to Gravesande, George willingly gave her statement and elected Corporal Da Silva to write it for her. It was disclosed that she appeared to read it after the questioning was over. Gravesande added that at no time did they use force or threats on the accused young woman. The witness told the jury that George said to Da Silva: “Officer is me and a boy; me and he all right.”He further explained that he cautioned Caesar with other ranks present and upheld his rights as a prisoner. He said the accused man selected him to write his confession for him. Gravesande related Caesar saying in 2010 that it was he and George who carried out the attack.“Officer about a year ago Marisco friend, a man, tell me fo’ beat a lady in de Mall ‘cause he didn’t like her. I had a piece of wood and I lash she for about three minutes. I see Marisco with money in she hand and I tell she that it robbery. She gave me $60,000 and I hid the material. The lady know me ‘cause I used to go to the Mall,” his caution statement read.Attorneys De Santos and Damien Da Silva, the latter who is representing George, both cross-examined the Police witness. State Counsels Abigail Gibbs and Narissa Leander appeared for the State. The matter continues before Justice Kissoon at the High Court.

Heritage students energy plan honored

first_imgIt’s called the Imagine Tomorrow competition.Each spring, high school students head for the Washington State University campus in Pullman to pitch visionary solutions for today’s sticky science and engineering challenges.An innovative biodiesel program at Heritage High School is very real, however. And clear-eyed experience, blended with far-reaching expansion plans, earned a team of four students a very real grand prize.Try cold, hard cash — $5,000 apiece, no strings attached — for winners Tyler Bradley, 18, a senior; Joe Dejony, 17, a junior; and sophomores Scott Maxfield, 15, and Zachary Schulling, 15.That was only part of $41,000 won by seven Heritage teams that carried the school’s Energy Smart collaborative banner. They brought home the largest share of at least $100,000 in awards split among more than 30 schools (with all but the grand prize money going to school programs, not to individuals).This third annual trip was the most rewarding 743-mile journey yet for biodiesel instructor Jim Neiman and teaching colleagues and students.“Our presentation is what made us win. We spent a lot of time on it, really put everything into detail,” said Maxfield, who plans to apply his prize to college civil engineering studies.last_img read more

PIC This picture of Nita Ambanis sister and mother proves good looks

first_imgInstagramNita Ambani is gorgeous, there is no denying that. But, if you had seen her mother Purnima Dalal, you would know where she got those looks from. We recently stumbled upon a picture of Nita Ambani’s sister and mother from Akash Ambani’s wedding and we can now say it with proof that good looks run in the family.Nita Ambani’s sister, Mamta Dalal, looked resplendent in a sequined red saree at the event and mother Purnima Dalal looks elegant and beautiful in a cream coloured saree. Mamta had also performed at Isha Ambani’s sangeet ceremony in Udaipur along with Tina Munim and Nita Ambani. InstagramNita Ambani’s mother, Purnima, was in news in 2017 when a video of her praying during the final match of the Mumbai Indians vs the Pune Warriors had gone viral. Mumbai Indians won the match and Twitter went berserk in trying to know the identity. That’s when Abhishek Bachchan came to the rescue and introduced everyone to her. Bachchan wrote, “That is Mrs Ambani’s mother. Popularly referred to as ‘Nani’. The lucky charm.”Nita Ambani has always been a renowned Bharatnatyam dancer. Her beauty coupled with her immaculate grace and poise had impressed Dhirubhai Ambani and Kokilaben. And we could see the same kind of charm and grace in Mamta Dalal and Purnima Dalal too.This takes us back to the time when the Ambanis, even before meeting Nita in person, had made up their minds to bring her home as their daughter-in-law. In a rendezvous with Simi Garewal, Mukesh Ambani had revealed that it was Dhirubhai Ambani who made the first call to Nita’s home and when he introduced himself, she found it hard to believe. Later, Dhirubhai spoke to Nita’s father, the families met and both the families agreed to the holy matrimony.last_img read more

Is Dredging the San Jacinto River Enough to Protect Kingwood

first_img Listen X Michael HagertyA large sandbar near Kingwood’s River Grove Park blocks the view of the San Jacinto River. 00:00 /13:24center_img River Grove Park in Kingwood overlooks the west fork of the San Jacinto River. But you can’t entirely see the river — even when you’re standing at the water’s edge.That’s because there’s a large sandbar sitting between the park’s boat ramp and the rest of the river. The sandbar is large enough that someone has set up a net so people can play sand volleyball on it (but you might need a boat to get out there though).Apple MapsAn aerial view of a sandbar near Kingwood’s River Grove Park on the west fork of the San Jacinto River.The sandbar wasn’t always there, but it is, however, a sign of a larger problem that came into play during Harvey — sediment buildup along the river that prevented proper drainage for many homes in the area and, perhaps most notably, Kingwood High School, which was damaged heavily.Michael HagertyKingwood High School suffered massive damage from flooding following Harvey.But work began recently to at least return things to where they were before Harvey – mainly dredging about two miles of the river. It’s the first major Houston-area flood control project to directly result from the storm.But is that enough? Should more routine maintenance dredging be done to prevent sediment buildup even further?To learn more about where all this sediment came from and how it could be addressed, Michael Hagerty visited the site and then spoke with William Dupre, professor emeritus in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Houston.Michael HagertyWilliam Dupre, University of Houston professor emeritus.

The 5 Takeaways from the Coyotes introduction of

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo The only thing Williams lacks is experience. That will come, and fast, too. With All-Pro Patrick Peterson covering the other side of the field, Williams will be tested often.“I don’t give a hell who you put over there; he’s getting picked on,” Arians said. “He’s the best we’ve got so he better be (ready).”Back to the original plan.It was expected that Bethel, entering his fifth NFL season, would slide into the starter’s role given the free-agency departure of last year’s starter, Jerraud Powers. But a left foot fracture that required surgery cost Bethel the entire offseason and most of training camp. Those reps he missed went to Williams, who excelled.Still, the Cardinals went looking for veteran help and signed Jenkins and later Ball; neither of whom made it through the preseason. Jenkins hurt his hand early in camp and then later suffered a torn ACL at Houston. Ball, meanwhile, dealt with a quadriceps issue that ultimately led to an injury settlement.Through it all, Williams kept improving.“Day 1, I didn’t know how to backpedal,” he said. “My press wasn’t as polished as I wanted it to be, and I still have a long ways to go, but from Day 1 to now it’s day and night.” Top Stories TEMPE, Ariz. — Admittedly, this was not the plan.Not Week 1, and certainly not against the caliber of opponent as the New England Patriots, regardless of the quarterback under center.Yet, here are the Arizona Cardinals with a rookie — and a player with very limited experience at the position — starting at cornerback.In the season opener. In front of a nationally televised audience, no less.No one could have forecast Brandon Williams being in the spot he now finds himself in less than five months after being selected in the third round (92nd overall) in the 2016 NFL Draft. Arizona Cardinals’ Brandon Williams, left, and San Diego Chargers’ Darrell Stuckey battle during the first half of a preseason NFL football game, Friday, Aug. 19, 2016, in San Diego. (AP Photo/Denis Poroy) Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retirescenter_img OK, maybe one person could. Williams.“Not to be cocky, but not at all because I know the type of work I put in behind closed doors; a lot of sacrifice, a lot of commitment, dedication, being consistent,” he said Wednesday, just moments after he was officially named the starter. “I know what I do, I know how I prepared myself, so being surprised about the position I’m in right now, I’m not surprised at all.”Fair enough.But most everyone else is surprised.“Well, in April I would’ve said, ‘No, he wouldn’t be starting corner,’” said cornerbacks coach Kevin Ross, who then listed Justin Bethel’s lingering foot injury plus injuries to veterans Mike Jenkins and Alan Ball for why Williams has been thrust into the job. “Now he’s got to play.”Ross, though, expressed confidence in Williams, as head coach Bruce Arians has throughout training camp and preseason.“He’s made drastic improvement. I mean he came here, he’s a guy who played six months of DB (at Texas A&M after a position switch from running back), so he’s come a long ways. The great thing about him is he’s thirsty for knowledge, and he’s not scared of the challenge, so he’s going to be OK,” Ross said, pointing to Williams’ confidence and capacity to quickly forget the previous play, especially if beaten in coverage or penalized. “He’s got the mentality you’re looking for in a DB, that’s for sure.” 1 Comments   Share   “Me being at A&M helped me a lot because we played every Saturday (in front of) 100,000-plus on national TV,” he said. “Playing under the bright lights and all of that, I’m used to that now.”Williams hopes to be the answer to perhaps the one defensive question remaining with the Cardinals ahead of the season opener.“It ain’t a question mark until you go out there and try him. You got to try him first, and if he answers the questions, then there ain’t no questions,” Ross said. “We’re not the first team in this position and we won’t be the last team in this position. There’s a lot of teams playing a couple of rookies here and there, so you know what, it’s his turn, it’s his time.” Aside from his athleticism, perhaps the most impressive part of Williams’ game is his short-term memory.“The mindset that I bring to the table is just you got to get yours more than you get got,” he said. “That’s the kind of mindset you got to have at corner because you’re going to get got. Those guys get paid, too. Those guys are tremendous athletes just like you are, but you got to make sure you make more plays, though.”There will be a learning curve with Williams, that’s a given. But for now, he’s the starter.Bethel and Marcus Cooper, whom the Cardinals recently acquired from the Chiefs, will also see time –perhaps rotating in — though it remains to be seen how much Bethel will be able to contribute. He’s been limited in practice because of the foot.“He’s got a couple of choices,” Ross said of Bethel, “he can worry about the foot or he can worry about the guy he’s got to cover. On gameday, adrenaline will kick in and he won’t be worrying about that foot too much, he’ll be worrying about his performance.”Williams is not worried. Again, he’s put in the work. And as far as the big stage of Sunday Night Football in front of a sold-out University of Phoenix Stadium, yeah, that doesn’t faze Williams, either.
