In an update to an earlier story on LookToTheStars.org, we are pleased to report that Cholita the ‘real-life Paddington bear’ who won the world’s hearts after suffering abuse in the circus has been successfully returned to her native home by Animal Defenders International (ADI).Cholita Gets Her FreedomCredit/Copyright: Animal Defenders InternationalThe elderly, hairless bear has been nursed back to health by the animal rescue organisation and relocated in an epic three-day journey over the Andes to a specially-built habitat in the Amazon.25-year-old Cholita is an endangered Spectacled bear, who suffered years of loneliness, shut in a tiny cage and abused at the circus. Her fingers were brutally cut down to stumps to remove her front claws and her teeth were broken off, leaving her defenceless. Cholita’s sad, stressful life has left her suffering from severe hair loss – where she should have thick, black fur she has none, leaving her almost completely bald.Animal Defenders International recovered Cholita earlier this year and has nursed her back to better health, helping her arthritis and breathing troubles. At the ADI Spirit of Freedom rescue centre near Lima, Peru, Cholita as received round the clock care, a more natural, appropriate diet, veterinary treatment, a pool to bathe in and hanging fruits and toys to entertain her.Thanks to an overwhelming public response, a new home has been built for Cholita, complete with bathing pool and cave, at the Taricaya Ecological Reserve on the edge of the Tambopata reserve in the Amazon Cloud Forest – the natural habitat for Spectacled bears. The lush, natural jungle habitat was constructed by a team from ADI, Taricaya and Projects Abroad volunteers.ADI started loading in the middle of the night before setting out on the 1,500 km / 1,000 mile journey across the Andes to take Cholita home to the rainforest. Travelling on the convoy and also headed for new forever homes were Mufasa the puma, who was rescued from living on a pick-up truck in a circus, and James the military macaw, woolly monkeys Rojas, Joan and Diego, and spider monkeys Pepe-Lucho and Lily, who were rescued from illegal wildlife trafficking.A convoy of trucks and cars laden with a dozen bales of hay, food, water and veterinary supplies including two oxygen tanks, left Lima on Wednesday morning for the three-day drive. Cholita and the others snuggled into blankets and thick straw beds, and their cages and crates were covered with blankets and plastic to guard against the mountain cold.Due to concerns about elderly Cholita’s breathing issues, ADI fitted out Cholita’s cage with an oxygen tent. As the convoy climbed to high altitudes, Cholita’s cage was flooded with oxygen-rich air to ensure she did not become distressed. Cholita built a huge den in her travel cage from four bales of straw and buried herself there for most of the journey.After three days of travel and stopping only for food and water, Cholita, Mufasa, the monkeys and parrot all arrived safely at Puerto Maldonado for the final leg of the journey by boat down the Madre de Dios river in the Amazon basin.On arrival at Taricaya, Cholita found herself in the forest, hearing all the sounds she has not heard for a lifetime, smelling the earth, touching the leaves and the trees. The joy of their new environment was clear for Mufasa, Rojas, Joan, Diego, Pepe-Lucho, Lily and James.Animal Defenders International President Jan Creamer said “When we first met Cholita, the vivid scars of her abusive circus life were clear to see. She has come so far since then, and it is a wonderful feeling to have seen Cholita return to the world from which she was stolen as a baby. We thank everyone who has donated to help us save Cholita and bring her home.”With Cholita relocated to her new jungle home, Animal Defenders International has turned its attention to finding her some friends and three more Spectacled bears who are in urgent need of a new life in the jungle – Lucho, Sabina and Dominga, who has also lost all her fur. ADI must act fast to save them and has launched an urgent appeal to build a safe haven for the three bears and care for them for life. It is hoped they will be companions for Cholita, who has been isolated from her own kind since her mother was likely killed when she was snatched from the wild as a baby.Animal Defenders International President Jan Creamer said, “People all over the world have been touched by Cholita’s story and we have been overwhelmed by the public’s heartfelt response which has allowed us to save Cholita and build her perfect home. We now have an opportunity to give Cholita the companionship she desperately needs. Please donate now to complete the storybook ending for Cholita and the three bears and give this sweet bear her happily ever after.”It is expected to cost Animal Defenders International over £100,000 to save the three bears and provide Cholita and friends with specialist, life-long care.Please donate now: www.ad-international.org/helpthebears or 020 7630 3340.Cholita was rescued as part of Animal Defenders International’s Operation Spirit of Freedom, a mission in collaboration with Peru’s authorities to enforce their law on wild animal circuses, and raid circuses all over the country in the biggest operation of its kind. During the mission, the organisation has saved nearly 100 animals from circuses and the illegal wildlife trade.Animal Defenders International President Jan Creamer said, “Our utmost thanks go to Peru’s wildlife officials at SERFOR and ATFFS, as well as Projects Abroad and their volunteers at Taricaya Ecological Reserve who worked so hard to build a wonderful new home for Cholita in the rainforest.”
FORT NELSON, B.C. – The Fort Nelson & District Chamber of Commerce says it is concerned that the provincial government has not provided members of the public and the business community with enough clarity to make an informed decision in the upcoming referendum on Proportional Representation.During the 2018 BC Chamber of Commerce annual general meeting, BC Chambers voted in favour of a resolution to have a non-partisan panel appointed to look at the likely outcomes of an alternative system prior to issuing a referendum, comparable to the previous Citizens’ Assembly, examining the implications of the proportional representation. In particular, the Chambers say the panel should look at proportional representation’s implications on rural/urban divide.The Chambers also voted in favour of the Province clearly defining the system of proportional representation that is being considered well ahead of any referendum, and to confirm that no changes would be implemented without a clear overall majority with support in each riding. “British Columbians need to be provided with concise, understandable information so as to be able to make an informed decision.” said Bev Vandersteen, Fort Nelson Chamber of Commerce.The Fort Nelson & District Chamber of Commerce said today that it is calling on the provincial government to slow the process down and implement the suggestions proposed by the BC Chamber.
A 9-year old boy died and some 1,455 people were left homeless in the Amer and Djabal camps, due to the fires, which were caused by poorly tended open fires fanned by heavy winds, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said today.“Despite repeated fires in the camps in 2007-08, refugees remain reluctant to construct their shelters with more fire-resistant mud bricks, preferring instead traditional sticks and straw which are tinder dry,” UNHCR spokesperson Ron Redmond said in Geneva today.After each fire, UNHCR staff in the two camps immediately distributed family tents and other household items, including plastic sheeting, mats, blankets, jerry cans and kitchen sets to those affected, he said. “We continue to stress the need for caution with open cooking fires and are encouraging refugees to build their shelters with more durable materials like mud bricks,” Mr. Redmond said.He added that UNHCR is seeking an additional $350,000 to carry out a durable shelter strategy in 2009 that will entail fitting the houses of some 1,660 vulnerable families with durable roofing materials not as prone to fire.A total of 250,000 Sudanese refugees from the strife-torn Darfur region are hosted in 12 UNHCR-administered refugee camps in eastern Chad, and other 60,000 refugees from the Central African Republic (CAR) are in five UNHCR-assisted sites in the south of the country. 17 March 2009The United Nations refugee agency said today it was hastening to replace supplies and put preventive measures in place after five accidental fires swept through two camps for Sudanese refugees in remote eastern Chad in the past four weeks.
TORONTO — Hudson’s Bay Co. chief executive Jerry Storch says bringing the iconic department store brand to the Netherlands wasn’t his original plan, but feedback from local shoppers suggested the country could use more Canadiana — and a few of those Bay blankets.When the retailer opens its doors on Tuesday in Amsterdam it marks the first time in its history that Hudson’s Bay stepped outside Canada’s borders with its flagship name. Nine more locations will canvass the region before the end of the month, with five more set to open next year.It’s an aggressive push into new territory, Storch acknowledges, but the opportunity to pick up attractive local space from bankrupt Dutch chain V&D was too good to ignore.“There was a big gap in the Dutch market between a very high-end luxury player and the discount chains,” he said.“We looked at all the markets in the country.”Putting up signs in the Netherlands for a 347-year old Canadian business that started as a fur trading company wasn’t quite as obvious at first, he said.Originally executives felt it made sense to simply migrate Inno, a Belgium chain they acquired two years ago, across the border assuming that consumers shared some familiarity with the brand.However, they quickly learned that not everyone in the Netherlands favoured the idea of a neighbouring country setting up shop on its home turf.“The Dutch people kept telling us, ‘We don’t want the Inno brand,”‘ Storch said.“We couldn’t believe it. Even the guys at the hotel restaurant would tell us, ‘No, bring Hudson’s Bay here.”‘So HBC, which owns a number of other banners including Saks and Lord & Taylor, chose to make Hudson’s Bay its top priority in the region. Another two discount stores under the Saks Off 5th name will open before the end of the year.Storch is confident that a dose of Canadian spirit to the Netherlands will be greeted with open arms.The two countries have a number of historic connections, most notably near the end of the Second World War as the Canadian Armed Forces liberated the Dutch people.Ottawa also sheltered the country’s Princess Juliana during the Nazi occupation, which later inspired the Netherlands to gift thousands of tulips to the nation’s capital. The tradition continues each year with the Canadian Tulip Festival.Storch said department stores that were cherry picked from the 60 closed V&D locations will open fully renovated and stocked with items familiar to Canadians, like the famous wool blanket. More than 100 Dutch brands and a variety of national and global labels will also fill the shelves.But Storch said the retailer won’t spend much time reflecting on the history of the Hudson’s Bay brand in Canada.“We’re focused on how exciting and forward looking the brand is,” he said.–Follow @dfriend on Twitter.
“He was in jail but was later freed with the assistance of UNP member John Amaratunga,” Ramanayake told a local radio station today.Ramanayake said that anyone who has doubts over what he is saying can directly ask President Sirisena if the story is true. Ramanayake said that this was one of the reasons why the President did not want Rajapaksa to be the Prime Ministerial candidate of the United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA). “President Sirisena was a witness to that incident,” Ramanayake claimed. “I asked the President if I can reveal this to the media and he said yes,” Ramanayake added.According to Ramanayake the President has said that everyone in Hambantota and even senior UNP members are aware of the allegation against Rajapaksa.Ramanayake said that if the families of the victims come forward the case against Rajapaksa can be brought back into the open. He also noted that the new Government has launched investigations into several cases which had been closed by the former Government and if required even the case against Rajapaksa will be investigated. (Colombo Gazette) President Maithripala Sirisena accused former President Mahinda Rajapaksa of being involved in a murder incident in Hambantota some 20 years ago, a Deputy Minister claimed.Deputy Minister of Social Services, Welfare and Livestock Development Ranjan Ramanayake said that President Sirisena had personally told him that Rajapaksa was a suspect over the murder incident.

Metaswitch_Mobile.jpg Additionally, features that should be fundamental to mobile business systems have been lacking, too. These include business messaging integration and multi-identity systems that fully satisfy the needs of both the user and the enterprise when employees use their personal phones at work. In the coming years, your enterprise will continue to be more mobile, and at the same time it will likely migrate more of its communications to a UCaaS platform. It makes sense to see these developments as two elements of the same strategy, and to seek a UCaaS solution that is best suited for the mobile enterprise. That means understanding the software platform that your provider uses to deliver its service, and the relationship between that software service and the network on which it’s being delivered. Hosted VoIP Is About More Than Cost-Savings Robert Oscanyan June 24, 2019 Look beyond the bottom line when evaluating whether to migrate from legacy systems to the cloud. 5 UCaaS MQ Mysteries Examined Marty Parker August 22, 2019 Gartner estimates that 40% of new enterprise telephone purchases will be based on a cloud office suite – either Microsoft Office 365 or Google G Suite – by 2023 — but what does that mean? UCaaS systems can address these challenges more effectively when they’re tightly integrated to the underlying network that delivers the service. Early-generation UCaaS has been delivered as an over-the-top service, but a UCaaS service that’s integrated into the network can more effectively provide the quality of experience that delivers a true mobile-native experience for the enterprise.

How could it not be, when 52% of all workers and 90% of knowledge workers are mobile, according to industry analyst firm ZK Research? Surveys increasingly show that the transition from on-premises systems to unified communications as a service (UCaaS) is driven less by a desire to save money, and more by the greater business agility that UCaaS offers the enterprise. But agility isn’t just about the IT organization gaining flexibility and the capacity to roll out new features quickly. It’s also about giving end users more agility — specifically, providing them with the platform that best suits the mobile nature of today’s workforce. Can Mitel and TDS Telecom Own the UCaaS Market? John Malone July 31, 2019 New promotions, rebates, and prices are influencing UCaaS purchases, according to the Eastern Management Group. The only question is how successfully you’ll fulfill this requirement for your end users. The earlier generations of mobile UC have met with mixed success because they didn’t fully integrate UC into the mobile system and device. Most notably, they required a standalone mobile UC app that didn’t integrate with the native dialer and other phone features. Taking a People-First Approach to Unified Communications Brian Mahoney July 01, 2019 Successful adoption requires understanding user personas and use cases, on top of formal change management processes.

Mr. Miloševic’s trial will now resume on 31 August, with the opening of his defence case, instead of the scheduled start date of next Monday. Since it began in February 2002 the trial has already lost more than two months because of the former President’s health problems. Three judges of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), sitting in The Hague, said they had studied the medical report from a court-appointed cardiologist. That report recommended Mr. Miloševic not attend the hearing set for Monday. Mr. Miloševic is facing charges of genocide, crimes against humanity and other war crimes for his role in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Kosovo during the Balkan wars of the 1990s.
Alberta Premier Rachel Notley to leave existing royalty rates unchanged Canadian Press by Ian Campbell Posted Jan 29, 2016 11:08 am MDT Last Updated Jan 29, 2016 at 3:56 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email It could be the biggest about-face yet for a Premier who until now, told Albertans we weren’t getting our fair share from energy revenues.Rachel Notley has announced there will be no changes on existing wells for the next ten years.Notley addressed industry stakeholders and members of the media Friday morning from the Hyatt Regency, after revealing the results of the royalty review.“The straightforward message I have for every person who wants to know about the government’s plan on royalties is this; our new royalty frame work recognizes the reality of our economy today.”The premier was making reference to how the new “scheme” will leave rates unchanged.“Alberta oil and gas explorers and producers – whether they are your employers, your customers or the people whose shares are in your RRSP – they will know today that the oil and gas wells they drilled this year and in previous years will pay royalties in the same way they have since they were drilled.”Notley says this will provide the industry and more importantly investors with the confidence they need moving forward about the energy sector.“And when those Alberta explorers and producers are making their plans today – for drilling in 2017 and beyond – they will know this; those new wells – even under the panel’s modernized framework – will give them the same internal rate of return they would have earned on the same well drilled in 2016, subject to a) them meeting or beating average industry costs of drilling and b) prices remaining with the range that our extended drilling incentives stay in play.”In a bid to empathize with Albertans, Notley said she knows “we’ve been through a lot” but believes it’s our determination that will help us come through this recession.She once again, cited the importance of a strong, environmental framework that will attract consumers to our natural resources.“We won’t shout at or threaten Canadians in our principal markets. But we will act as a climate leader among the world’s major energy producers by: cleaning up our own act; engaging constructively with other provinces and stakeholders; and being a good partner to Canada’s new federal government as it works to keep its commitments on this issue.”In less than a year, since the election, it appears to the Premier’s focus may have changed from what is still posted on the Alberta NDP’s platform.“The PCs have also refused to implement realistic oil royalties, that the people who own the resources – all of us – deserve. The reason for the refusal is clear; Jim Prentice and the PCs are too close, much too close, to a small minority of Albertans who benefit from the status quo under the PCs” it reads.It’s also however no secret that the price of oil has continued to plummet since Albertans cast their ballot at the polls.Notley says the recommendations they’ve adopted will respond to the pain and the uncertainty that workers and families are feeling across our province.“It’s designed to encourage more investment and more jobs than we’d otherwise have,” she told reporters.“We (Albertans) will agree often and disagree occasionally, but we will: innovate and control our costs; maintain investment and maintain and create good paying jobs – including new jobs adding value to our resources and developing new innovations; gain greater revenues for the Heritage Trust Fund over time; be world climate leaders among energy producers; and persuade Canadians, with evidence and with reason, of the importance of our resources and of us gaining new access to markets.”Notley’s comments alluding to recent opposition from provinces like Quebec, where Mayors like Denis Coderre have vehemently opposed Energy East.“We can look at the public policy, business and environmental issues together, and make practical progress that makes practical sense.”She made her comments in downtown Calgary with investors and stakeholders, getting the same update as media in an adjacent room.Plans for the royalty review have been revealed as crude continues to trade around $33 U.S. a barrel.
If your iPhone 4 is used mainly for making calls and sending text messages, it probably easily makes it through the day with some charge left in the battery. But if you spend your commute and breaks playing apps, watching video, or surfing the web, it may be dead by the time you get home.Mophie believes it has a solution that promises to double the battery life of your iPhone 4. The only downside is your smartphone is going to get a bit fatter.AdChoices广告The case-with-battery offered by Mophie is called the Juice Pack Plus. It houses a 2000mAh capacity battery inside a dual-injected hard shell case and rubberized band around the edge, meaning you get some protection as well as hours more battery.Mophie state the Juice Pack Plus allows:Up to 8 additional hours talk time on 3G; 16 hours 2GUp to 7 additional hours Internet on 3G; 11 hours WiFiUp to 44 additional hrs audio playbackUp to 11 additional hrs video playbackSome other clever features include a standby/charging switch so you only use the extra juice when you need it. Charging and syncing can be done without having to remove your iPhone from the Pack, and there’s a status indicator on the bottom of the Pack telling you how much juice is left and what the charging status is.If you’re concerned about how much bigger this will make your iPhone 4, and how much heavier, it’s not that bad.

Paludisme : des parasites résistants se propagent en AsieL’émergence en Thaïlande de parasites du paludisme résistants aux traitements fait craindre une épidémie en Asie et en Afrique. C’est une course contre la montre qu’engagent les chercheurs.C’est une découverte préoccupante que vient de révéler une équipe du Texas Biomedical Research Institute (TBRI). Dans le cadre d’une étude publiée dans la revue médicale britannique The Lancet, ceux-ci ont suivi de 2001 à 2010, un groupe de 3.202 Thaïlandais atteints du paludisme. Ils ont ainsi constaté que des cas de résistance à l’artémisinine, la thérapie la plus efficace étaient apparus dans des cliniques du nord-ouest du pays. Plus sérieux encore, ils ont observé un fort déclin de l’efficacité de cet anti-paludéen durant cette période. Une résistance du parasite qui proviendrait de la propagation de gènes mutants et qui inquiète fortement les chercheurs.À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?”La dissémination des parasites résistants à l’artémisinine en Asie du Sud-Est et le risque de propagation en Afrique subsaharienne, où la plupart des décès se produisent, seraient un désastre en terme de santé publique et provoqueraient des millions de morts”, indique Standwell Nkhoma, chercheur du TBRI et principal auteur de l’étude cité par l’AFP. “Avec la propagation des parasites résistants à l’artémisinine on risque de se retrouver sans autres traitements contre le paludisme”, redoute le chercheur. Cela est d’autant plus inquiétant que la résistance aux autres anti-paludéens, comme la chloroquine et le fansidar, s’était déjà effectuée de l’Asie du Sud-Est vers l’Afrique. Déjà, le Cambodge voit ainsi apparaître des cas de parasites mutants résistants. Les responsables sanitaires avaient toutefois espéré pouvoir éviter leur propagation à d’autres zones géographiques en essayant de les détruire tous, explique le Dr Nick White. Cependant, une seconde étude menée par les mêmes chercheurs fait briller une lueur d’espoir. Ceux-ci ont en effet identifié une zone clé dans le génome de ces Plasmodium falciparum (les plus mortels des parasites du paludisme), où siège la résistance à l’artémisinine. Grâce à cette importante découverte, il pourrit être possible de créer des marqueurs moléculaires efficaces permettant de surveiller la propagation des parasites résistants. “Si à partir de là nous pouvons identifier le ou les gènes spécifiques, dont les mutations sont à l’origine de cette résistance, nous pourrons alors en comprendre le mécanisme”, relève le Dr Tim Anderson du TBRI.Le 6 avril 2012 à 15:01 • Maxime Lambert

Since its inception in 2004, Houseplans.com has grown to feature nearly 40,000 plans across two-dozen categories, from Beach House and Bungalow to Tudor and Victorian. The site claims that over 100,000 homes have been built from its blueprints, which range from $200 garage or pool house plans to sprawling seven-bedroom designs costing $5,000 or more. Hanley Wood currently operates a number of similar brands, including ePlans, Homeplans.com, Floorplans.com and Dream Home Source. As with those brands, integration with Hanley Wood’s existing media titles in the residential and commercial design space—including the magazines Architect, Builder and Custom Home—is a likely outcome for Houseplans.com, Reid tells Folio:. Hanley Wood added another title to its portfolio of digital properties. The company announced that it has acquired Houseplans.com, an archive of home and floor plans available for purchase and download. “Houseplans.com is the number-one ranked URL in this market segment,” adds Hanley Wood CEO Peter Goldstone in a company release. “Their website, technology and portfolio of house plans perfectly complement our existing B2C assets and significantly expand our reach to the consumer audience.” Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The acquisition is part of a strategic effort by the company to strengthen its business-to-consumer assets. As the housing market continues its slow recovery—housing starts in the U.S. rose close to eight-year highs in September—Hanley Wood wants to position itself as a comprehensive ideation and information hub for its audience of builders, designers and consumers alike. “We have already integrated these types of services into our magazine brands in a similar way,” Reid says. “Every site has some editorial resources. Homeplans will see a tremendous amount of integration with Custom Home.” “We have been in this business a long time, and Houseplans has long been considered a destination site for us, especially from a natural search perspective,” says Andrew Reid, Hanley Wood’s president of digital and head of strategic development.

Needless to say Peterson has improved since then. Coming off a game in Tampa where he intercepted two passes and earned NFC Defensive Player of the Week honors, the former LSU star is now considered to be one of the best cover corners in the NFL.Set to face Newton, Smith and the Panthers again this Sunday, the third-year pro said the game brings no extra motivation to the table.“Obviously we want to go out there and win a game, but I’m treating this game just like any other game,” he said. “We want to go out there and play well as a defense and ultimately get the W.”Peterson, like the rest of the Cardinals, understands that the Panthers present some pretty difficult choices as far as what to focus on. One one hand you have Newton, who can air the ball out to guys like Smith, Ted Ginn and Greg Olsen, but then there’s also the running game featuring Newton and veteran back DeAngelo Williams. Though inconsistent, the weapons are there.“It’s kind of pick your poison with those guys,” defensive coordinator Todd Bowles said. “We really got to do a good job of studying.”Peterson, who will likely spend most of the afternoon shadowing Smith, said he believes the Cardinals have the necessary pieces to slow down a potentially potent offense. Patrick Peterson’s first game in the NFL, which came on Sept. 11, 2011, will be remembered for his game-winning 89-yard punt return in the fourth quarter of Arizona’s 28-21 win.But while the cornerback shined in the return game, he struggled mightily in coverage.Fellow rookie Cam Newton torched Peterson and the Cardinals’ secondary to the tune of 422 yards and two touchdowns.
