Alberta hopes program will reduce family violence in immigrant communities

first_imgEDMONTON – Alberta hopes to reduce domestic violence in immigrant communities by teaching men and boys not to take their frustrations of living in a new country out on the women and girls in their families.The province is renewing funding for agencies that use “cultural navigators” — respected community leaders — to deliver the message that family violence is not acceptable.“Some may struggle with learning a new language, underemployment and the pressure of adopting a new country,” Community Services Minister Irfan Sabir said Tuesday.“All of these factors can lead to incidents of family violence.”Alberta’s family violence rate is the third highest in the country according to the latest figures from Statistics Canada. A report released in February notes seven out of ten victims of family violence reported to police across Canada in 2015 were young girls or women.Sabir said immigrants are less likely to report such incidents.He said the goal of the program is to help newcomers adjust to life in their new country and encourage healthy relationships.The program funding announced Tuesday is aimed at people in the Syrian, Eritrean, Filipino, Somali, Sudanese, Congo, Ivory Coast and Chad communities in and around Edmonton.Jan Fox, executive director of the REACH Edmonton Council for Safe Communities, said some newcomers are overwhelmed when they first come to Canada. There can be confusion about gender roles, family finances and LGBTQ issues, she said.“If you are going through all of those stresses, it just creates a much greater risk,” said Fox, a former warden of the federal Edmonton Institution for Women.“In some cultures, it may be really important that men and women talk about these issues separately. The cultural navigators know those kind of things — what is going to give a mom a feeling of safety, how can she talk about it.”One of the agencies in the program focuses on increasing awareness about sexual health and sexual violence, including helping victims get the mental health services they need.Fox said preventing domestic violence reduces calls to police, helps families get out of poverty and can improve how children perform in school.Joseph Luri, team leader for preventing domestic violence involving men and boys at the Edmonton Mennonite Centre for Newcomers, said it can be taboo to talk about the issue in some communities.Luri, formerly of Sudan, said some men believe they have the right to use violence to discipline their wife or children. The program uses community elders to deliver the message that family violence is not acceptable in Canada.“The basic message to the boys and men is that we need to be very respectful,” he said. “We need to always resolve our conflicts by sitting down to talk, but not using force.”Alberta announced a similar program to help Calgary’s South Asian community last November.last_img read more

Lakehead University law school welcomes new nonIndigenous dean

first_imgWillow FiddlerAPTN NewsLakehead University has a new dean of law.More than a year after the Thunder Bay school’s previous law dean stepped down alleging systemic racism, Lakehead has named Jula Hughes as the new person to head its Bora Laskin Faculty of Law.Hughes, who joins Lakehead from the University of New Brunswick, fills the void left by Angelique EagleWoman following EagleWoman’s resignation in April 2018.EagleWoman was the first Indigenous academic to lead a Canadian law school. But in that role she faced systemic racism, she alleged, and has since filed a lawsuit against the university for racial discrimination and constructive dismissal. She’s seeking $2.67 million in damages.Lakehead’s law school opened in 2013 and made Indigenous law its core focus.EagleWoman led the department from 2016 to 2018.The university they appointed a non-Indigenous interim dean, retired judge Patrick Smith; the decision was criticized by local First Nations groups.In an interview with APTN News Hughes said she is up to the task of leading the faculty.“We’re facing the same issues over and over again,” she said. “We’re facing the issue of inadequate recognition of Aboriginal legal tradition. We’re facing students still coming out of law school not knowing very much about Aboriginal people — they don’t know very much about Indigenous law, Aboriginal law.”But some faculty at Lakehead say the school needs an Indigenous dean.Dennis McPherson holds a law degree and says he’s applied for the job twice.A longtime professor in Lakehead’s Indigenous Learning Department, McPherson says he is disappointed but not surprised the university hired a non-Indigenous law dean.“It comes back to lived experience,” he says. “It doesn’t have to be me, it can be somebody else. But what an Indigenous person would bring into it is a different perspective.”Senator Murray Sinclair, on the other hand, offered his support to Luges in a statement.The former judge and Truth and Reconciliation Commission chair said Hughes brings a “wealth of legal and academic experience” to the job.Hughes says hiring Indigenous faulty members is high on her list of priorities.“Making sure that this is a good environment for students to learn and a good environment for faculty to work is important to just concentrate on,” she said.“I think a lot of the expertise on Indigenous law continues to reside in the community much more than the academic environment.”She said she understands the skepticism and is up for the task.“I think it’s going to be for the community to decide whether this was something that worked for them or not,” she said. “I think the jury will have to be out on that for a little while, we’ll just have to see.”wfiddler@aptn.ca@willowblasizzolast_img read more

Send Alex Gordon

It would have been close. Alex Gordon might have scored, particularly if he’d been in the mindset to do so all along. Or maybe not. I’m sure there will be Zapruder-film-type breakdowns, and I’ll look forward to seeing them. It would have been one hell of a moment: Gordon, 220 pounds, who looks like he could have been a strong safety at the University of Nebraska, bearing down on Buster Posey, the catcher whose season-ending injury in 2011 helped inspire baseball’s home-plate collisions rule.Your browser does not support iframes.Game 7 will leave us with that sense of what might have been. Partly because it involved the Kansas City Royals, who were making their first World Series appearance since 1985. But mostly I’m referring to that penultimate play: When Gordon hit what was officially scored as a single and wound up on third base because of defensive miscues by San Francisco Giants outfielders Gregor Blanco and Juan Perez. It seemed to take an eternity — it was actually just 13 seconds — but I was surprised that Gordon wasn’t rounding third base by the time the TV cameras returned to the infield.Here’s what I know: Gordon should have tried to score even if he was a heavy underdog to make it. It would have been the right move if he was safe even 30 percent of the time.Between 1969 and 1992 — I’m using this period because it better approximates baseball’s current run-scoring environment than the offensive bubble of the 1990s and aughts — a runner scored from third base with two outs about 27 percent of the time, according to the tables at Tangotiger.com. We should probably round that down a bit in this example. The Royals had Salvador Perez at the plate — a league-average hitter — and the light-hitting Mike Moustakas due up after that.More importantly, they were facing Madison Bumgarner. That Bumgarner had been so dominant in the World Series is not as relevant as you might think. There’s extremely little evidence for a “hot hand” in pitching: In-game performance tells you next to nothing about how the pitcher will fare in future at-bats. Instead, you should look toward longer-term averages. Still, I feel comfortable asserting that Bumgarner was an above-average pitcher at that moment: Certainly not the first guy you’d want to have on the mound if you were the opponent. So let’s round that 27 percent down to 25 percent.So, Gordon should have tried to score if he had even a 25 percent chance of being safe?It’s just a touch more complicated than that. With the Royals down 3-2, Gordon represented the tying run rather than the winning run. If he’s thrown out at home, the game’s over; it forecloses on the possibility of Perez scoring as the winning run, like with a walk-off homer. What was the probability of that? Perez homered in about 3 percent of his plate appearances this season, but he could also have scored in other ways — by doubling, for example, and then scoring on a base hit by Moustakas. We can turn to Tangotiger’s tables again, which suggest that a league-average batter has about a 6 percent chance (I’m rounding down slightly) of eventually scoring from home with two outs.So, after Gordon holds at third, he has a 25 percent chance of scoring. Six percent of the time, Perez (or pinch-runner Jarrod Dyson?) also scores, and the Royals win outright. The other 19 percent of the time, Gordon is the only Royal to score in the ninth and the game goes to extra innings. If we assume the Royals are even money to prevail in an extra-inning game, their chances of winning at that point are:6% + (19% * 50%)That works out to 15.5 percent. Not coincidentally, this matches FanGraphs’ in-game win probability for the Royals (after Gordon held at third) almost exactly.What if Gordon rounds third and tries to score? If he’s successful even 30 percent of the time, the Royals’ win probability is at least 15 percent — a 30 percent chance of Gordon scoring, multiplied by a 50 percent chance of the Royals winning in extra innings. But it’s slightly higher than that. The 30 percent of the time that Gordon scores, Perez still has his 6 percent chance of scoring the winning run in the ninth. That brings the Royals’ overall win probability up to about 16 percent.We’re splitting hairs. The point is that if even Gordon had been a 2-to-1 underdog to score, he should have tried.These decisions can be counterintuitive. Sometimes a strategy that’s successful less than 50 percent of the time — like splitting eights in blackjack — is still the right move because the alternative is even worse. In this case, the alternative involved trying to score against Bumgarner with your catcher at the plate and two outs, and then having to prevail in extra innings.It would have made for one of the best plays in baseball history. We’re talking about the tying run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning in Game 7 of the World Series: Even a sacrifice fly can be thrilling under those circumstances. But this would have been in a league with Bill Mazeroski and Kirk Gibson and Bill Buckner: under serious consideration for the greatest play of all-time. (The play already had a little Buckner in it, with Blanco’s and Perez’s misplays in the outfield.)Unlike any of those moments, it would have involved an incredibly gutsy decision. It’s an extraordinary play if Gordon scores. It’s an extraordinary play if there’s a collision at home plate — and baseball needs to decide whether to invoke the “Buster Posey Rule.”And if Gordon were thrown out, it would have been the most extraordinary way to lose a game in the history of baseball.CORRECTION (Oct. 30, 11:14 a.m.): A previous version of this article misstated the first name of a Kansas City Royals catcher. He is Salvador Perez, not Santiago Perez. read more

Kelly to leave chief of staff job at end of year

first_imgUS president Donald Trump speaks to White House chief of staff John Kelly after an event with reporters in the Oval Office at the White House in Washington, US on 10 October. Photo: ReutersWhite House chief of staff John Kelly will leave his job at the end of the year, US president Donald Trump said on Saturday, his latest staff shakeup since midterm elections a month ago cost Republicans control of the House of Representatives.Trump, speaking to reporters as he left the White House to attend the annual football game between the Army and Navy military academies in Philadelphia, said he would name a successor for Kelly, possibly on an interim basis, in the next day or two.“He’s a great guy,” Trump said of Kelly, who led the Department of Homeland Security before taking over as Trump’s chief of staff. “I appreciate his service very much.”Trump has been in discussions for months with Nick Ayers, a top aide to vice president Mike Pence, about becoming his chief of staff, a White House official told Reuters.The president wants Ayers to do the job for two years, but Ayers is unable to make the commitment because of his family, including two young children, and has agreed to serve only until the spring of 2019, the official said.“The president and Nick are still working on the specific terms of him taking over,” said the official, adding that Ayers was eyeing a return to Georgia and had been planning to leave Pence’s office and the White House this month.Ayers has advised a number of high profile Republican governors and would bring a political edge to the president’s inner circle that was not integral to Kelly’s background.A freewheeling former businessman, Trump brought Kelly in last year to restore order to his often chaotic White House, but has clashed repeatedly with the retired Marine Corps general in recent months. The two men were no longer on speaking terms, according to one source with direct knowledge of the situation.Paul Ryan, the Republican leader in the House of Representatives, said Kelly was leaving what is “often a thankless job.”Kelly’s impending departure is part of a broad overhaul designed to recalibrate Trump’s administration as it faces a new reality in Washington, with Democrats set to take control of the House in January and the 2020 presidential race gearing up next year.On Friday, Trump announced his choice of William Barr, who was attorney general under former president George HW Bush in the 1990s, to return to the job as the head of the Justice Department.He also picked Heather Nauert, spokeswoman at the State Department and a former Fox News presenter, to become US ambassador to the United Nations.Kelly, 68, had some success in restoring order to Trump’s White House after he was appointed in July 2017, but the president bristled at his style.Their rocky relationship was highlighted in “Fear: Trump in the White House,” a book by Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward that was released in September.In it, Kelly was shown as one of several White House figures questioning Trump’s abilities and was quoted as calling the president “unhinged” and “an idiot.”“It’s pointless to try to convince him of anything,” the book quoted Kelly as saying during a meeting. “He’s gone off the rails. We’re in Crazytown. I don’t even know why any of us are here. This is the worst job I’ve ever had.”Kelly later denied calling Trump an idiot and said the book was “another pathetic attempt to smear” Trump’s administration.He issued a similar denial in April after NBC News reported he had referred to Trump as an idiot on multiple occasions and said the president did not understand policy or how the government works.Trump made Kelly chief of staff after the departure of Reince Priebus, who lasted little more than six months in the job.As head of Homeland Security, Kelly backed Trump’s ban on travel from certain predominantly Muslim nations but at times appeared at odds with the president’s agenda.In January, he told Fox News that Trump was not “fully informed” when he made his signature promise to build a wall on the US border with Mexico to block illegal immigrants and drug smugglers.In other controversial comments, Kelly said in February that some young illegal immigrants dubbed “Dreamers,” brought to the United States as children, may not have signed up for a program to protect them from deportation because they are “too lazy to get off their asses.”Trump to pick Heather Nauert for UN post: sourceKelly, who was born and raised in Boston, also sparked a backlash in October by saying the US Civil War, in which Southern states rebelled to try to maintain slavery, was caused by a lack of “compromise.”Unlike other key Cabinet appointments, the White House chief of staff does not require confirmation by the US Senate.last_img read more

Women and cheating All in the looks

first_imgWomen who are perceived as unattractive are more likely to cheat on their partners, while the opposite is true for men, according to a study that identifies predictors for whether your Valentine will be faithful in a long-term relationship. The study by researchers from Florida State University in the US identified some of the strongest predictors of infidelity, including age, marital satisfaction, sexual satisfaction, attractiveness and history of short-term relationships. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfResearchers found younger people and those less satisfied with their relationships were more likely to be unfaithful. People satisfied with sex in their relationship were more likely to engage in infidelity, perhaps suggesting they felt more positive about sex in general and would seek it out regardless of how they felt about their main relationship.Another predictor of infidelity was attractiveness. A person’s own attractiveness was negatively associated with infidelity among women but not men – meaning less attractive women were more likely to have an affair. A partner’s attractiveness was negatively associated with infidelity among men but not women – meaning men were more likely to be unfaithful when their partners were less attractive. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveA person’s history of sex was a predictor of infidelity, too. Men who reported having more short-term sexual partners prior to marriage were more likely to have an affair, while the opposite was true for women.The research, published in the journal Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, is the first to find evidence of psychological responses that help a person avoid infidelity and stay in a long-term relationship. The team followed 233 newly married couples for up to three and half years and documented intimate details about their relationships, including marital satisfaction, long-term commitment, and whether they had engaged in infidelity and if they were still together. Researchers tested two psychological processes that everyone shares in varying degrees: Attentional Disengagement and Evaluative Devaluation of potential romantic partners. The team tested newlyweds on those processes by showing them photographs of highly attractive men and women, as well as average-looking men and women. Researchers discovered that participants who quickly disengaged their attention from an attractive person were less likely to engage in infidelity. Individuals who looked away in as little as a few hundred milliseconds faster than average were nearly 50 per cent less likely to have sex outside marriage. Conversely, partners who took significantly longer to look away from romantic alternatives had a higher risk of infidelity, and their marriages were more likely to fail.Tendency to devalue, or downgrade, the attractiveness of potential romantic partners also lowered the risk of infidelity and raised likelihood of maintaining the relationship.last_img read more

Ranked second in the league, allowing 71.3 rushing yards per game, here’s some of the numbers for the defense’s great start.• Caldwell ignoring early playoff talk (ESPN.com)Leading the NFC North with a 7-2 record and the best defense in football isn’t enough to get Lions’ coach Jim Caldwell to talk about his team’s future in the playoffs. Caldwell is rebuffing all postseason questions, promising that this team won’t get caught looking past the next matchup.• Rookie Swanson is up to the task for the offensive line (MLive.com)Travis Swanson was drafted in 2014 as the apparent heir to the starting center position, expected to be groomed for the spot throughout the season. But due to injuries on the line, Swanson was thrown into the lineup as a right guard on Sunday, and is earning praise for his solid performance.

The win came in spite of the injury to quarterback Carson Palmer, who was lost for the year with a torn ACL.Backup Drew Stanton will fill in for Palmer for the rest of the season. Stanton is already 2-1 as the starter in 2014, replacing Palmer while he was recovering from a nerve injury earlier in the season. Wednesday, November 12• Morning Roar: Matthew Stafford’s comebacks (ESPN.com)Matthew Stafford has a case for being one of the most clutch quarterbacks in the NFL. Of his 31 career wins, 15 were won by game-winning drives in the fourth quarter, including three straight games for the Lions this season. No other quarterback has done that as many times in their first six seasons.• Detroit Lions’ rush defense has posted some astonishing numbers (MLive.com)Detroit ranks in the top three in the NFL for almost all defensive categories, including first in points allowed per game and total yards.

first_imgMore people could be booking flights abroad this summer after a new survey revealed the public’s dissatisfaction with the UK’s beaches.Findings from the Corona Save the Beach initiative revealed that nearly half (46.6 percent) of people were put off visiting a beach in the UK because they feared it would be too dirty.It was also discovered that two-thirds of people (66 percent) said they chose to book flights abroad for their holiday because of the poor state of UK beaches.A further 74 percent complained that Britain’s beaches were “dirty or rubbish-ridden”, while 88 percent wanted to see the government doing more to clean them up.Corona Save the Beach spokesperson Alexandra Cousteau said that human indifference “is the greatest threat to our coastline”.”Every one of us has the chance to make a change which is beneficial to our beaches,” she commented.The Marine Conservation Society recently announced a 16.5 percent drop in the number of beaches in the UK recommended for excellent water quality.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map RelatedIncreasing numbers of people could book flights to Cornwall this summer, findings suggestMore Brits could be booking flights to Newquay,Euro exchange rate could encourage Brits to book flights further afieldEuro exchange rate could encourage Brits to book flights further afieldCredit crunch hit Brits still willing to book flights to the MedCredit crunch hit Brits still willing to book flights to the Medlast_img read more

Akel boycotts CyBC Updated

first_imgMain opposition party Akel said on Friday it has decided to boycott the state broadcaster’s news shows for the next few days over what it calls CyBC’s failure to publish the party’s statements over the past couple of days.The party said in a statement that it has repeatedly complained about being discriminated against over time but the ‘oversights’ and mistakes have not stopped.On Wednesday the main news show failed to broadcast two statements issued by the party, one on Syria and one on developments in the co-op bank.“The excuse on CyBC’s behalf was that they didn’t notice the statements,” the party said.But while the matter was pointed out, on Thursday CyBC again failed to include Akel’s statement on Syria, which was the show’s main news.Akel said public television is obliged to present parties’ positions objectively and without bias, especially those of the opposition.The party said it was left without any other choice in defending its right for equal treatment so it has decided to boycott CyBC in the next few days in protest.Akel, which is celebrating on Saturday the 77th anniversary of its arrival on Cyprus’ political scene under its current name, pledged to remain the ‘consistent, responsible, combatant power’ of defending the rights of workers and Cyprus.The party was founded in August 1926 as the Communist Party of Cyprus (CPC) and changed its name to Progressive Party of the Working People (Akel) in 1941, presenting itself as democratic and anti-fascist. You May LikeBrightStorySee what happens to your body when you have this for breakfast!BrightStoryUndoiHeadphonesThe most successful wireless headphones in USAiHeadphonesUndoDaily MailKatie Holmes treats Suri out to dinner to celebrate her 13th birthday Daily MailUndo Modi versus Wild: Indian PM to join Bear Grylls in wildernessUndoMorphou bishop now claims gay men have a ‘nasty smell’UndoFour dead in California garlic festival shootingUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Schinas solution to Cyprus problem should be a European one

first_imgThe solution to the Cyprus problem should be a European one, Margaritis Schinas, the Chief Spokesperson of the European Commission said on Friday.Schinas was speaking during an open discussion organised by the Representation of the European Commission in Cyprus and the Press and Information Office. The event was in the framework of EC`s citizens` dialogues for the Future of Europe.  It was also attended by students from seven secondary schools in Cyprus.Schinas said that the solution to the Cyprus problem should be a European one and also referred to the role of Cyprus as a bridge between the EU and the Arab world.He also said Turkey was “indeed a difficult neighbour” and we must find ways to coexist and cooperate in areas such as terrorism, migration crisis and security, keeping Ankara on a steady EU path.In his opening statement, Schinas said EU institutions themselves were responsible for failing to present the EU in simple terms its citizens. He described the EU as a family, “our shield and spear”, and it was not a distant, bureaucratic mechanism.“We have had the longest period of peace in Europe, a continent where almost everyone has fought with everyone else, we have managed to improve the standard of living eight times and moreover we have managed to promote EU as a soft power,” he said.All governments, MPs, municipalities, farmers, civil society need to be involved in bridging the gap between Brussels and European voters, he added.Schinas said that many citizens have genuine questions about the EU and what Brussels does and how they can benefit from EU projects and funding, “and we have an obligation to answer and convince them”.Referring to the migration crisis, Schinas said “crisis management” was not a solution and that people from countries of origin, such as Africa, should be encouraged to stay in their own countries and get education and jobs. The EU has the mechanisms to further assist Cyprus in dealing with migration flows, if asked, he added.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.

Physical Review Letters 120 138101 (2018) Each blow set the brain wobbling in a complicated way for a few tenths of a second the team found Researchers broke that motion down into dynamical modes—short-lived patterns of motion with distinct frequencies When jolted the brain oscillates most vigorously at about 30 cycles per second roughly the same frequency as the second lowest key on a piano the researchers report today in Physical Review Letters On average modes below 33 cycles per second soak up 75% of the total energy imparted to the brain Moreover harder impacts excite more modes says Mehmet Kurt an expert in brain biomechanics at the Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken New Jersey and an author on the paper That may be key he says because the different modes accentuate motion in different parts of the brain potentially causing neighboring regions to oscillate at different frequencies For example the modeling of a hit in which a player lost consciousness shows that in that collision the corpus callosum oscillated at a higher frequency than the surrounding white matter Even though the oscillations last for just a few cycles when neighboring brain regions vibrate at different frequencies the stretching and shearing of those tissues increases Kurt explains The analysis may be both bad news and good news for concussion researchers Kurt says “On one hand we’re saying “This problem is more complicated than you might think’ On the other hand we’re saying that we might have the right tool to study it” For example Bayly says by comparing the motions of different modes researchers might pinpoint brain areas most susceptible to damage Moreover helmet manufacturers might aim for designs that damp out the most damaging frequencies Bayly says However the work comes with a caveat says Bayly who has written a commentary on the study for the American Physical Society’s website To derive the motion of the brain from the accelerations measured during a hit the researchers depend on estimates of the mechanical properties of brain tissues such as their stiffness and propensity to soak up energy For ethical reasons those properties cannot be measured in living brains under injury-inducing conditions Bayly notes So the mechanical properties of brain material “aren’t anywhere as well-known as those of steel and aluminum” he notes To overcome that limitation Bayly suggests researchers next validate their technique by applying it to lower-impact collisions which can be safely inflicted on subjects in the lab and for which the material properties of a living brain under the appropriate conditions can be deduced from magnetic resonance imagining Successfully putting the modeling to that test would increase confidence in its implications for harder hits he says “That would be really interesting and probably the very next step”A 22-year-old veteran was arrested Tuesday and charged with animal cruelty after tying her
