Mirror patterns in the eye may cause dyslexia, scientists say

Individuals with {{w|dyslexia}} have difficulty reading, especially distinguishing between letters that are mirror or flipped images of each other, like p, b, and d. Research published in ''Proceedings of the Royal Society B'' indicates that this may be because the {{w|rods and cones|receptors in their eyes}} are arranged in a mirrored pattern while those of non-dyslexics have two different patterns.

In the back of the eye, there is a small spot that has {{w|cone cell|receptors for red and green light}} but none for blue light. In the dominant eye, this spot is round. In the other eye, it is asymmetrical. This, researchers speculate, allows the brain to choose just one of the two images to work with. Dyslexic individuals, researchers found, have round spots in both eyes.

"For dyslexic students their two eyes are equivalent and their brain has to successively rely on the two slightly different versions of a given visual scene," writes the research team. Author Guy Ropars of the {{w|University of Rennes}} says this may also serve as a means of diagnosing dyslexia.

Because the images from the two eyes do not reach the brain at the same time, with a delay of a few thousandths of a second, researchers were able to use a flashing LED light to allow the study participants to process only one image. They came to call it the "magic lamp."

Iraqi army dominates Kirkuk

{{date|October 16, 2017}}
Today, Iraqi army regained control over the city of Kirkuk, which was occupied by the Peshmerga fighters of Kurdistan's autonomous regions. After regaining the control in a 48-hour long operation, Iraqi joint operation command said, "Security has been restored in sectors of Kirkuk, including Dibis, Al-Multaqa, and the Khabbaz and Bai Hassan North and South oil fields". Mosul's Nineveh province is now under army's control as well.

The oil fields of Bai Hassan and Avana were captured by the army yesterday. Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi gave orders to capture disputed areas between Kurdistan and Iraq on Monday. City of Kirkuk has oil fields, and Iraqi Oil Ministry signed a contract with UK's oil company BP, for consultancy in 2013. But, the following year, Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant gained control over the area before Peshmerga could dominate the city. In the operation to re-gain the control, at least 25 Peshmarga fighters were killed, according to Barzan Mohammed, a morgue official in Sulaimaniyah.

Prime Minister said regaining the control of the oil fields and other areas occupied by Kurdistan was essential to "protect the unity of the country". Three weeks ago, Kurdistan held independence referendum, which the prime minister had called "unconstitutional". After regaining the control, Al-Abadi said plans of independent Kurdistan was "a thing of past".

70yr old retired detective asks Congressional Committee on Judicial Affairs to investigate the Hawaii Federal Court

2017-10-17T20:40:39Z

Pi zero: /* Sources */ {{tasks|src|mos|re-review}} {{date|17 October, 2017}} 70 yr old retired police detective says Federal Court in Hawiaii is Corrupt. Retired cop, JD Benish, author and executive editor for Codefore Publishing filed a request for a [http://codeforeblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/US-9th-Circuit-Court-of-appeals-request-for-change-of-venue.-10-12-17-redacted.pdf change of Venue] with Judge Thomas, head judge for the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals alleging a Grand Jury was “squashed” by Federal Judge Michael John Seabright. Benish said that after years of private journalistic investigation into the 1993 murder of 4 year old Hawaiian Princess Lacey Woolsey Ruff, in Late December of 2015 he filed a [http://codeforeblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Affidavit-12-10-15-to-9th-circuit-court-of-appeals-A.pdf request to impanel] a Federal Grand Jury to investigate what he called “RICO” style corruption within the Criminal Justice System in Hawaii. Benish said that the little Ruff girl was murdered in 1993 and a young man named Aaron Schonlau was sentenced to life in prison based on the testimony of his older brother Todd Schonlau. However Benish said that in 2012 an Oregon woman who was dating Todd Schonalu told him that he confessed to her that it was he, (Todd Schonlau) who actually murdered the 4 year old by drowning her in the Pacific Ocean and weighting her body. “I couldn’t understand why the police, nor the Attorney General, nor anyone else was not interested in this confession.” Benish said. “It was even more serious than just not being interested. An investigator for the Kauai prosecutor actually intimidated the child’s father and warned him not to speak to me.” Benish said that some residents of Kauai and the “big island” contacted him with more complaints of inaction's by the Justice system in Hawaii and that some of these actions involved theft, fraud and money laundering of millions of dollars involving some of the largest tax free foundations and banks in the country. Benish said that he filed a request to empanel a Grand Jury to investigate because it was obvious that local and State authorities wouldn’t do it. Benish said that he presented his citizens Affidavit to Judge Seabright in late December 2015 and a week later the Judges Head clerk sent a [http://codeforeblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/United_States_District_Court-1-to-judge-denial-for-foi-docs..jpg letter t]o him stating that his request had been denied and that his documents and evidence were going to be destroyed. “I [http://codeforeblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/Email-to-Judge-Seabright-w-email-header.pdf emailed] Judge Seabright directly and pointed out to him that his refusal to impanel the Grand Jury was in violation of the 5th Amendment to the Constitution.” “In January I received a [http://codeforeblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Lisa-Abernathy-Hawaii-MP3-Format-Sound-1.mp3-1.mp3 voice mail], again from Seabright’s head clerk Lian Abernathy, that the Affidavit for a Grand Jury was processed and forwarded to the sitting Grand Jury. “It turned out to be a big lie.” Benish said. “There’s [http://codeforeblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/Email-from-Abernathy-Fed-court-4-18-17-admits-no-processing.jpg no Grand Jury investigation] because my request was s…t canned.” Benish said that its apparent now that the corruption reaches to the Federal Court itself, who took it upon themselves to assume the position as prosecutor and deny an investigation that might result in indictments and arrests. Benish said that when Seabrigtht’s clerk [http://codeforeblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/Email-from-Abernathy-Fed-court-4-18-17-admits-no-processing.jpg Lian Abernathy finally admitted] via an email to him that she did not process his request, he took action.

Israeli athletes barred to represent country in Abu Dhabi's grand slam

2017-10-17T16:25:18Z

Acagastya: Please review this article. (via form) {{review}}{{date|October 17, 2017}}{{Sports}} On Monday, {{W|Israel Judo Association|Israeli Judo Association}}'s chairman {{W|Moshe Ponte}} was informed by organisers of the {{W|judo}} grand slam in [[Abu Dhabi]] that Israeli athletes would not be permitted to wear [[Israel|Israeli]] flag, symbols, or bear the country's name on their judo uniform. Ponte communicated with {{W|Miri Regev}}, {{W|Ministry of Culture and Sport (Israel)|Israeli minister of Culture and Sports}}, and considered withdrawing the team from the grand slam, which is scheduled to be held from October 26 to 28. Regev wrote a letter addressing {{W|Thomas Bach}}, the president of {{W|International Olympic Committee}}, which read, "The demand to appear without national symbols is contrary to the mandate of international sports associations, the main aim of which is to separate politics from sport, and strengthen sport as a bridge and connection between peoples, cultures and countries." She even wrote, "It is the obligation of any country which has the privilege of hosting an international competition to allow the competing athletes to represent the country honorably while ensuring their security." Officials of the Abu Dhabi judo grand slam said the players would not be allowed to bear Israel's code "ISR" on the back and on the scoreboard, and Israeli national anthem would not be played, if any Israeli {{Wikt|judoka}} wins a gold medal. However, Israeli Judo Association said, "We won't be dragged into the political arena and won't award prizes to those who want to deter us from appearing all over the world." Twelve Israeli judokas are expected to compete in the grand slam in the capital of the [[UAE]]. They would represent {{W|International Judo Federation}}, and their jersey would contain "IJF" tag. About two years ago, Israeli athletes faced the same situation in the grand slam in the UAE's capital, and Regev had asked for an emergency meeting then. In last year's [[Olympics]] in [[Rio de Janeiro|Rio de Janiro]], after losing to Israeli judoka {{W|Or Sasson}}, {{W|Islam El Shehaby}} of [[Egypt]] refused to shake hands. International Olympic Committee said this gesture "was contrary to the rules of fair play and against the spirit of friendship embodied in the Olympic values." During the opening ceremony of the same tournament, Israeli team were denied by [[Lebanon|Lebanese]] athletes to share a bus, even physically blocking the entrance to prevent Israelis to board the bus. Israeli's {{w|Sailing (sport)|sailing}} coach {{w|Udi Gal}}, in a Facebook post wrote, "How could they let this happen on the eve of the Olympic Games?

The number of Canadians travelling to the United States continued to drop in 2017, even though the Canadian dollar has strengthened, the {{ w |Vancouver Sun}} reported today. The number of Canadians travelling to the US declined between 2013 and 2016 when the value of the Canadian dollar declined making trips more expensive for Canadians, but this year the value of the Canadian dollar has been going up,however travelling continues to decline.

Thirty one percent of Canadians polled recently by a {{ w |Vancouver}} research company, expressed concern about travelling to the United States. The Sun speculated, based on a poll by {{ w | Facebook}}, that the reason for the continued decline in travel may be due to Canadians’ fear of recent mass shootings in the United States such as {{ w | Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting}} and {{ w | 2017 Las Vegas shooting}}, a reaction to the growing {{ w | Islamophobia}} in the United States, or possibly reports of {{ w |social media}} intrusion by the {{ w | U.S. Customs and Border Protection}} agency may be behind the decline in travel.

In 2013 Canadians made forty eight million trips to the United States. By the end of fiscal 2017 the number will drop to thirty four million trips.

WiFi encryption protocol flawed

2017-10-16T20:41:43Z

Jmacdissi: The WiFi encryption protocol used widely in modern devices, WPA2, was found to have a flaw that makes the encryption vulnerable to attacks.


{{review}}
{{date|October 16, 2017}}

The protocol used to secure a device's connection to a Wi-Fi network, WPA2, was found to have a severe flaw in the protocol on Monday. The flaw, referred to as KRACK, was found by Mathy Vanhoef. Vanhoef is a security expert at Belgian university KU Leuven. KRACK stands for Key Reinstallation Attack. The flaw affects most devices that support Wi-Fi. The flaw works by exploiting how devices connect to Wi-Fi networks secured by WPA2. An attacker can use the flaw to gain access to the network and perform other attacks on the devices connected. The attacker would only need to be within physical proximity of the network to perform this attack. The biggest impact is home routers as manufacturers rarely update the software used, which could lead to a long wait before a fix is released. It has been found that Linux and Android 6.0 are the most affected by this flaw, while Windows and iOS do not fully implement WPA2 and therefore are not as affected by this flaw. At current, security experts recommend that users watch out for upcoming software updates and update as many devices as they can and as soon as they can.

Taylor Swift may be famous for her long list of ex-lovers (or Starbucks lovers if you prefer). She may also now be known for her 43.2 million views on her latest video Look What You Made Me Do in twenty-four hours. However, even though it is quite clear that this song is already more popular than Train's "Drive By" song from early 2012, it was not a drive by surpassing. As of Monday the 28th at 8:30 p.m., the TS video STILL had fewer views than Drive By, which, after a very cold start (just 4700 views during its first 34 hours), has over 130 million views today. No matter how short you think this battle was, you can rest assured that it took more than 24 hours for LWYMMD to surpass DB.

After 143 years, Canada's Lake Huron First Nations seek rent adjustment

2017-10-15T15:58:48Z

Darkfrog24:

{{date|October 15, 2017}}

Twenty-one First Nations in and around the {{w|Lake Huron}} area have collectively sued the governments of [[Canada]] and [[Ontario]] over the current interpretation of the {{w|Robinson-Huron Treaty}} of 1850, which arranged that the government would pay each individual in the signatory nations a small sum in exchange for access and hunting and fishing rights to 37,000 square miles (96,000 square kilometers) of land near the river that connects Lake Superior to Lake Huron. That sum, last updated in 1874, is currently {{w|Canadian dollar|C$}}4.00.

One of the lawyers for the plaintiffs, Mike Restoule, interpreted the treaty's intent this way: "'Here's what I'll do. I'll offer you this annuity and if the territory produces more revenue for the crown, the annuity will be increased accordingly,'" he said, paraphrasing William Benjamin Robinson, the agent whom the English {{w|Queen Victoria}} sent to negotiate with the First Nations.

Since the treaty's inception, the parcel has generated revenue in what Restoule calls the trillions of dollars for forestry, mining and the development of other resources, though others place this figure between C$500 million and C$1 billion.

Many of the hundreds of treaties made with Canada's indigenous communities included some form of treaty annuity, and this case may set a precedent for further renegotiation: "Other First Nation groups are watching this very carefully because they're saying they don't have a good deal either," said Restoule. "So they're saying, if this case is won by the Robinson Huron treaty First Nations, they're going to look very closely at efforts to increase their annuity as well."

The Huron First Nations are not the only indigenous people living under such treaties. Much of the land belonging to Lakota Sioux in the United States is under 99-year leases to farming interests on terms that the Sioux consider financially disadvantageous.

UM’s palaeontologists, Masatoshi Sone and Teng Yu He, reveal that the dinosaur remain is identified to be a tooth of an ornithischian dinosaur, known herbivorous. The new dinosaur tooth (UM10580) is about 13 mm long and 10.5 mm wide in preserved dimension. It is medium to large size for an herbivorous ornithischian tooth.

The tooth has a defined neck and a large expanded crown with a cingulum, a thick ridge round the base of the crown, indicative of an ornithischian tooth. The new material was discovered from a Cretaceous sedimentary rock formation in Pahang, where the carnivorous spinosaurid teeth were reported earlier this year.

In addition to the last carnivorous dinosaur discovery, the present find implies the fact that there was an established vegetated terrestrial ecosystem in Peninsular Malaysia during the Cretaceous period (65–145 million years ago) of late Mesozoic time.
[[File:Parksosaurus Steveoc86.jpg|thumb|What the animal looked like]]
It is plausible that large dinosaur fossil deposits still remain in Malaysia. UM’s research team has currently carried out extensive field investigation around the country that may disclose more significant finds in a near future. Dr Chaying Poodak had recently named the dinosaur ''Poodakosaurus malasyoherbivori'', meaning Poodak's Malaysian herbivore

{{w|Pakistan}} Army announced on Thursday they had recovered an abducted [[Canada|Canadian]]-[[US]] couple and their three children from the {{w|FATA|tribal areas}} of Pakistan in an operation carried out from US intelligence. The couple were abducted in 2012 by the {{w|Haqqani network}}.

According to media reports, wife Caitlan Coleman from the US, husband Joshua Boyle from Canada, and their three children, two boys and a girl, were recovered from custody through an intelligence-based operation conducted by Pakistan Army.

The couple was abducted by the Haqqani network in 2012 while they were on a tour to {{w|Afghanistan}}. Caitlan Coleman was seven months pregnant at the time. She gave birth during her abduction to two boys and a girl.

In December, a video was released of the couple in which both were sitting with their —then two— children. They asked authorities to negotiate to set them free.

According to a US official and Pakistan Army's press release on Friday, the couple with their children were repatriated.

Hurricane Ophelia approaches Azores, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and the Faroe Islands

Pi zero: Not ready when reviewed: article needs improvement(s). Add article flag. (Using easy peer review {{tasks|news|re-review}}{{date|October 16, 2017}} {{weather}} [[file:17L_2017_5day.png|thumb|left|250px|Five-day forecast cone of uncertainty with track line for Ophelia (17L) from the National Hurricane Center. {{image credit|[[wikipedia:National Hurricane Center|National Hurricane Center]]}}]] Storm Ophelia is currently affecting the {{w|Finnøy}} municipality in Norway, with winds of up to 45 kilometers per hour after beating a path through [[Ireland]]. The storm christened {{w|Hurricane Ophelia (2017)|Hurricane Ophelia}} had battered {{w|Azores}} as a {{w|Category 3 hurricane}} before striking Ireland on Monday morning. Although various weather agencies have downgraded Ophelia to a post-tropical cyclone or windstorm, it has already whipped the island with 109 mile per hour winds (176 km/h), leaving roughly 100,000 households without electricity. The government of the [[Republic of Ireland]] has issued a red wind warning, and {{w|Taoiseach}} {{w|Leo Varadkar}} has asked residents to remain indoors for the duration. Both the Republic and [[United Kingdom]] have ordered military forces ready to respond to emergencies. The United States {{w|National Hurricane Center}} predicted the storm will cross Ireland and make landfall on [[Scotland]] Monday evening, which it did, with winds of up to 55 kilometers per hour. "Public safety is our key concern today. Advice is to stay at home, no unnecessary travel or other outdoor activities. Further updates later", Varadkar said via [[Twitter]]. The {{W|Dublin Airport|Dublin}} and {{w|Manchester Airport}}s have cancelled or grounded large numbers of flights, and an amber warning is in effect for [[Northern Ireland]] and a yellow warning for [[Scotland]], northern and western [[England]] and [[Wales]]. Most hurricanes do not remain very strong this far north. At 11:00 a.m. Saturday morning, Ophelia unexpectedly intensified to a {{w|category 3 hurricane}}, setting the record for the easternmost {{w|category 3 hurricane}} in recorded history. Ophelia was at that time expected to lose its "tropical characteristics" and turn into a powerful, hurricane-force extratropical cyclone before reaching [[Ireland]] and [[Scotland]]. "A number of [tropical storms] reach Europe, but usually they are weak systems," Reindert Haarsma of the {{w|Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute}} told ''Newsweek''. "That they reach Europe with this strength, near hurricane force, is quite unusual." A hurricane is defined by a central column of warm, water-laden air, which a course over the northern [[Atlantic Ocean]] often melts. If this had happened to Ophelia, it would have been classified as an extratropical cyclone upon reaching Ireland, but it was still expected to have hurricane force winds. According to Haarsma, northern countries may suffer even more damage because the people and infrastructure are not set up for storms of this kind. This early in {{w|autumn}}, the trees have not shed their leaves, and the types of {{w|trees}} that grow in this area do not tend to bend in strong winds. The island of Ireland is home to two political entities, the [[Republic of Ireland]], which is independent, covers most of the island, and [[Northern Ireland]], which is part of the [[United Kingdom]], covers six Ulster counties in the north. The head of state of the Republic of Ireland is called a Taoiseach. {{haveyoursay}} ==Related news== *{{wikinews|As shipping exemption expires, hurricane-[...]



Boy Scouts of America to being accepting girls

2017-10-12T03:46:44Z

Darkfrog24: {{prepared}} {{United States}} {{date|September, 2018}} This week, the first official female Cub Scouts formed dens and commenced earning badges as part of the Boy Scouts of America. In October of last year, the {{w|Boy Scouts of America}} announced that their board of directors had unanimously decided the century-old children's organization would begin accepting girls as {{w|Cub Scouts}} and allow them to apply for and earn {{w|Eagle Scout}} status, a unanimous decision by their board of directors. This has raised questions about the future of an independent but related organization, the {{w|Girl Scouts of America|Girl Scouts}}. [[File:Boy Scouts of America Eagle Scout Court of Honor.jpg|thumb|left|A young man at his Eagle Scout Court of Honor in 2006. The Boy Scouts of America have announced they will begin allowing girls to earn this award starting in 2019.{{image source|Tom Anderson}}]] The decision does not mean there will be mixed groups, called dens, of male and female Cub Scouts: "Cub Scout dens will be single-gender — all boys or all girls," the Scouts said in a statement, and it will be up to local scouting organizations to decide whether to establish girls' dens. These dens can be combined with others to create larger groups, called packs. The Boy Scouts already admit girls to some of their programs but this move would allow them to become full members of the organization, so long as they are young enough to become Cub Scouts. A new program, slated to begin in 2019, is designed to allow older girls earn the Eagle Scout Award, which is the Boy Scouts' highest honor. "I just want to do what the Boy Scouts do — earn the merit badges and earn the Eagle Award," aspiring Eagle Scout Sydney Ireland told ''NBC News''. "The Girl Scouts is a great organization, but it's just not the program that I want to be part of. I think girls should just have the opportunity to be a member of any organization they want regardless of gender." Ireland has been an unofficial member of her local Boy Scout den since she was four and authored a Change.org petition requesting that the organization admit girls. The {{w|National Organization for Women}} approved of the decision but the {{w|Girl Scouts of America}} did not. Membership in both the Boy and Girl Scout organizations has dropped by millions since the early 2000s, and this measure may bolster membership in the Boy Scouts. The president of the Girl Scouts has accused the Boy Scouts of poaching girls in the past. "We've had 105 years of supporting girls and a girl-only safe space," Lisa Margosian, chief customer officer for the Girl Scouts, told the press. "So much of a girl's life is a life where she is in a coed environment, and we have so much research and data that suggests that girls really thrive in an environment where they can experiment, take risk and stretch themselves in the company of other girls." Margosian also said the Girls Scouts were "blindsided" by the Boy Scouts' announcement. "The problem with the Girl Scout curriculum is that it's very focused on who your leader is for your particular troop," said Rebecca Szetela, one mother of four from Michigan. "If you have a mom who's really into crafts and girlie stuff and being a princess, then that's what your Girl Scout troop is going to be like. If you have a d[...]

{{tasks|news|mos|re-review}}
{{date|October 11, 2017}} {{Canada}}
{{ w| Government of Canada| Ottawa}} announced yesterday that it has further narrowed down the number of proposals for ''innovation superclusters'' upon which it plans to spend 950 million taxpayer dollars. The supercluster program is part of an initiative by the [[Justin Trudeau]] administration to spur innovation and create jobs in [[Canada]]. The shortlisting of approved projects is being managed by the department of {{ w | Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada}}. The five finalists are expected to be announced by March 2018.

A supercluster is a hub which integrates {{ w | university}} {{ w| research}} with [[w : business | business]]. These hubs are intended to produce new advanced technologies and generate jobs. Superclusters are to be operated by consortia of research institutes and private companies incorporated as {{w|non-profit organizations}}. Each consortium is expected to match every dollar contributed by the government toward the supercluster's operating costs.

Ottawa has received 50 supercluster proposals from more than 1,000 firms and 350 consortia. Yesterday's announcement has reduced the short list to nine innovation superclusters. The $950 million will be allocated to superclusters during the next 5 years. Economic Development Minister {{ w | Navdeep Bains}} will visit {{ w | Halifax, Nova Scotia | Halifax}}, [[Montreal]], [[Toronto]], {{w|Calgary}} and [[Vancouver]], to announce the chosen finalists.

One approved supercluster, nicknamed the Ocean Supercluster, is slated to operate in Halifax with the goal of fostering digital technology for offshore oil and gas collection, energy production, aquaculture, and fisheries. Other proposed superclusters plan to focus on such subjects as {{ w | manufacturing}},{{ w | artificial intelligence}}, and {{ w | Mobile computing | mobility systems}}.

It is not known at this time whether superclusters will be established throughout Canada.

Greek parliament votes to legalise sex-change without operation

2017-10-11T14:29:57Z

Acagastya: added Category:Acagastya (Wikinewsie) using HotCat {{date|October 13, 2017}}{{Human rights}} The [[Greece|Greek]] parliament on Tuesday voted in favour of a bill allowing people older than fifteen years to change their identified gender legally without undergoing any medical operations. 171 out of 285 votes favoured of the bill. Per the earlier laws, individual had to undergo an operation, which [[LGBT]] advocacy group {{w|ILGA-Europe}} called "outdated and oppressive practice that violates individuals' bodily integrity". The {{w|Greek Orthodox church}} opposed this bill. Before the voting, prime minster {{W|Alexis Tsipras}} told parliament, "No tradition, no religion, no perception of family requires citizens to remain on the margins or be pushed into institutional and social oblivion". {{w|Metropolitan bishop|Metropolitan}} Nicholas of {{W|Phthiotis}} said, "They have brought blasphemy upon the human body. Today they tell us that God did not create man and woman [...] every man can easily become a woman, and every woman a man. It is a satanic deed." The Church's governing Holy Synod went on to say, {{translated quote|el|Greek language|Το προτεινόμενο Νομοσχέδιο προκαλεί το αίσθημα της κοινωνίας, τορπιλίζει τον ιερό θεσμό της οικογένειας, έρχεται σε αντίθεση με τα χρηστά ήθη και την κοινή λογική και κυρίως καταστρέφει τον άνθρωπο.|The proposed Bill provokes the feelings of society, undercuts the sacred institution of the family, defies customs and common sense, and, above all, destroys people.}} Opposition party head {{W|Kyriakos Mitsotakis}} raised concerns about the minimum age being just fifteen years to change one's gender identity. Mitsotakis said, "For such a decision, maturity is required which only age can guarantee" and added, "It makes no sense to us that a fifteen-year-old, who is prohibited from consuming alcohol, is allowed to take such an important decision". Greece is largely an orthodox country, and the church has been against the idea of gender-change. In August, president Michelle Bachelet of the predominately {{w|Roman Catholic}} country of {{w|Chile}} signed a bill — which would then require approval from the two houses of congress — to grant LGBT citizens the right to {{w|same-sex marriage}}, and permit LGBT couples to adopt children. Member of the {{w|Syriza}} party Nikos Xydakis said, "This is about human and civil rights[...] It is about humanity, solidarity and dignity. There are times when politicians have to be more progressive than society and I am delighted that Greece will now be among the most liberal [[EU]] countries on this issue." Other [[Europe|European]] countries to allow changing identified gender includes [[Ireland]], [[Norway]], [[Denmark]], and [[Malta]]. {{haveyoursay}} == Related news == *{{wikinews|Chile president Michelle Bachelet signs bill to legalise same-sex marriage|Thursday, August 31, 2017}} == Sources == *{{source |url = http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-41572943 |title = Greek parliament approves law allowing legal gender change |author = |pub = BBC News Online |date = October 10, 2017 }} *{{source |url = https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/oct/10/greece-passes-gender-change-law |title = Greece passes gender-change law opposed by Orthodox church |author = Helena Smith |pub = The Guardian |date = October 10, 2017 }} *{{sour[...]



AGF President Anar Mammadov is nurturing professional Golfer in Azerbaijan

Pi zero: required elements


{{develop}}{{date|October 10, 2017}}

Anar Mammadov, the son of {{w|Ziya Mammadov}} and the President of Azerbaijan Golf Federation, has been working on coaching young golf enthusiasts, to turn them into professional golfers. The country which hosts two 18 hole golf courses, developed the Azerbaijan golf Federation in 2012, and has been working ever since to build its future.

In 2014, when the country hosted {{w|Azerbaijan Golf Challenge Open}}, the first professional golf in Azerbaijan, it helped the country’s sport to gain a much-needed exposure. But Azerbaijan was still in its nascent stage when it came to nurturing national talent. To facilitate coaching of Azeri children, Anar Mammadov facilitated the Federation to hire a Scottish coach Spenser Henderson, who is currently the under-18 National Boys Coach for Scotland Golf. Other initiatives included the Flames Golf, which was designed in 2015 to make golf a part of Azerbaijan sports. The AGF President has also personally met these young golfers and their parents to educate them about the scope of golf.

“We don’t want to waste time on our future. We built a proper infrastructure; made the sport popular and now, we have been training talented Azeri children in our academy,” Anar Mammadov also quoted in an interview.

Football: Robben retires from international football after Netherlands fails to qualify for World Cup

2017-10-10T23:47:22Z

Acagastya: added Category:Acagastya (Wikinewsie) using HotCat {{date|October 13, 2017}}{{football}} On Tuesday, Dutch {{w|soccer|football}} {{w|winger (association football)|winger}} and captain {{W|Arjen Robben}} announced retirement from international play after [[Netherlands]] failed to qualify for next year's {{w|FIFA World Cup|World Cup}} in {{w|Russia}}. ''Oranje'' defeated [[Sweden]] 2–1 at home, but failed to qualify for a second consecutive major tournament, after [[UEFA Euro 2016|last year's UEFA Euro]] tournament. Robben, playing his 96th international match on Tuesday, made his international debut in April 2003. Netherlands played {{w|Sweden}} at the {{W|Amsterdam ArenA}} in the Dutch [[Amsterdam|capital]], and were awarded a penalty kick in the sixteenth minute after a {{w|foul (association football)|handball}} from Swedish defender {{W|Victor Lindelöf}} in the penalty area. Robben scored from the spot, netting his 36th international goal from a {{w|Panenka kick}}. In the 40th minute, Robben scored his second of the night, from outside the box. The scoreline remained 2–0 at the end of full time. Netherlands dominated in ball possession having 69%. The win gave the ''Oranjes'' three points, tying with Sweden with nineteen points from all the group stage matches. However, Sweden finished second in the Group A table above Netherlands, leading in goals scored. In order to play the play-offs for the World Cup, Netherlands needed to defeat Sweden by a seven-goal margin. Robben's second goal brings his tally of international goals to 37, and is fourth in the list of top scorers for Netherlands, tied with {{W|Denis Bergkamp}}. Robben has featured in the FIFA World Cup tournaments of 2006, 2010 and 2014. He has won a silver medal at the 2010 World Cup, losing to [[Spain]] in extra time, and a bronze medal finishing third in 2014's World Cup in {{w|Brazil}}. After the match, Robben said, {{translated quote|nl|Dutch language|Ik heb hier lang over nagedacht. Een hele tijd terug heb ik al overwogen te stoppen, maar toen ben ik toch doorgegaan. Ik ben nu 33 jaar, ik speel bij een topclub in Europa, dan moet je keuzes maken. Ik ga me nu vol concentreren op mijn club.

Lewandowski scored a goal against [[Montenegro]] in [[Warsaw]], which was his sixteenth in the qualification stage becoming the first [[Europe|European]] player to net sixteen in one FIFA World Cup qualifying tournament. On the same day, [[Egypt]] defeated [[Congo]] 2–1 with {{W|Mohamed Salah}} scoring both goals including the match winning last minute penalty kick for Egypt. Egypt previously featured in the World Cup 28 years ago in 1990, which was their second ever World Cup tournament. On Monday, [[Iceland]] secured a place for their maiden World Cup.

South Korean lawmaker reveals North Korean hackers stole classified military documents detailing joint operations between the South Korean and US military forces in the event of war

{{tasks|copyvio|news|mos|re-review}}{{North Korea}}{{date|October 10, 2017}}
On Tuesday, Rhee Cheol-hee, a member of [[South Korea]]'s {{w|National Assembly (South Korea)|National Assembly}}, told [[CNN]] that [[North Korea]]n hackers had hacked into the South Korean Defense Ministry database last year in September, and stolen classified military documents, including wartime contingency plans with the [[US]] and a document including plans to "decapitate" the North Korean regime. According to Rhee, the hackers stole roughly 235 gigabytes worth of military data.

A spokesman from South Korea's Defense Ministry declined to comment at a daily press briefing when asked about Rhee's comments, saying that the information is classified. {{w|The Pentagon}} did the same, but on Tuesday, spokesman Col. Robert Manning said he was "confident in the security of [the [[US]]'s] operation plans and [their] ability to deal with any threat from North Korea."

North Korea has been blamed for many hacking attacks in many countries over the past decade. According to {{w|Russia|Russian}} cybersecurity firm {{w|Kaspersky Lab}}, the country is short on cash to pay for imports. North Korea has trained a large army of hackers to collect funds. North Korean hackers usually work abroad, taking legitimate software programming or other jobs in other countries. Here they wait for instructions from Pyongyang to mount an assault.

Australia bars North Korea's U-19 football team from entering the country asserting Korea's 'illegal nuclear programmes'

2017-10-10T14:23:26Z

Acagastya: added Category:Sports using HotCat {{date|October 11, 2017}} {{Politics and conflicts}} The [[Australia]]n federal government has blocked the Under-19 men's team of [[North Korea]] from entering the country. "Hosting the team would be contrary to the Government's strong opposition to North Korea’s illegal nuclear and missile development programmes", Australian foreign affairs minister [[Julie Bishop]] told the {{W|SBS News}} yesterday. The Korean team was scheduled to play a qualification match for {{W|Asian Football Confederation U-19 Championship|Asian Football Confederation championship}} on November 8 in Shepparton, Victoria. Julia Bishop said, "It would also be inconsistent with our efforts to increase diplomatic and economic pressure on [[Pyongyang]] to comply with [[UN]] Security Council resolutions." A [[Victoria]]n government spokesperson said the match would be rescheduled, and played outside the Australian borders at a "neutral venue". {{W|Football Federation Australia}}'s statement said they "respect[ed]" the federal government's decision. [[Hong Kong]] and the [[Northern Mariana Islands]] are the other two counties in the same group with North Korea and Australia. In March, a qualification match between [[Malaysia]] and North Korea for 2019's {{w|Asian Cup}} was rescheduled after [[Kim Jong Nam|Kim Jong-Nam]]'s death at {{w|Kuala Lumpur International Airport|Kuala Lumpur airport}}, half-brother of North Korea's leader [[Kim Jong-un]]. On September 28 the match was postponed — by this time, its third postponement — after the Malaysian Ministry of Foreign Affairs barred Malaysians from travelling to North Korea.

So, not abandoned. {{tasks|news|re-review}}{{date|October 10, 2017}}{{Turkey}} On Sunday, the [[US]] embassy in [[Ankara]], [[Turkey]] issued a statement saying they were suspending new requests for non-immigrant visas with immediate effect. Ambassador {{W|John Bass}} explained this measure would reduce the number of visitors while they "assess the commitment of the Government of Turkey to the security of our diplomatic facilities and personnel". Turkish officials arrested two staff members this year. Metin Tous, a Turkish employee at the embassy, was arrested on Wednesday for allegedly having ties with {{W|Fethullah Gülen}}. Gülen is currently in the US, in exile from Turkey. According to the Turkish government, Gülen played a major role in last year's failed coup which led to death of more than 250 people. Bass said, "We have been unable to determine why it occurred or what, if any, evidence exists against the employee". On March 7, Turkish police arrested Hamza Uluçay. Uluçay was a translator in the US consulate in {{W|Adana}}, and was accused of belonging to the {{w|Kurdistan Worker's Party}}, which the Turkish government has labelled a "terror organisation". The wife and children of one of the staff of the US Consulate in Istanbul were detained in {{w|Amasya}}, and the staff member was called to testify on Monday at the Public Prosecutor's Office. On Monday, Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, in [[Ukraine]], commented on this ban saying, {{translated quote|tr|Turkish language|Bu karar her şeyden önce çok çok üzüntü verici. Ankara’da büyükelçinin böyle bir kararı alarak uygulamaya sokması üzüntü verici.|Above all, this decision is saddening. The fact that the ambassador in Ankara took such decision and implemented it is saddening}}. John Bass explained the ban is not to prevent Turkish citizens from entering the US, like other countries facing a travel ban under orders from US president Donald Trump. Citizens who already have a US visa can visit the country. And they can apply for visas from embassies outside Turkey, Bass clarified in the statement. {{haveyoursay}} == Reated news == {{wikinews|Over 250 killed in failed coup attempt in Turkey|Monday, July 18, 2016}} == Sources == *{{source |url = http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/turkey-issues-detention-warrant-for-another-us-consulate-staff-member-120574 |title = Istanbul Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office calls US Consulate staff member to testify |author = |pub = Hürriyet |date = October 9, 2017 }} *{{source |url = https://tr.usembassy.gov/ambassador-john-bass-statement-suspension-visa-services-turkey/ |title = Ambassador John Bass’ Statement On The Suspension Of Visa Services In Turkey |author = John Bass |pub = US Embassy |date = October 9, 2017 }} *{{source |url = http://www.sozcu.com.tr/2017/gundem/son-dakika-haberi-erdogandan-abdyle-vize-krizine-ilk-yorum-2042677/ |title = Son dakika haberi… Erdoğan’dan ABD’yle vize krizine ilk yorum |author = |pub = Sözcü |date = October 9, 2017 |lang = tr }} *{{source |url = http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/us-decision-to-suspend-visa-services-in-turkey-saddening-erdogan-120600 |title = US decision to suspend visa services in Turkey saddening: Erdoğan |author = |pub = Hürriyet |date = October 9, 2017 }} *{{source |url = http://www.aljaz[...]



Japanese Knotweed discovered on Google’s Dublin docklands headquarters

2017-10-09T22:01:03Z

Ottawahitech: + {{Ireland}} {{tasks|src|mos|re-review}}{{date|October 9, 2017}} {{Ireland}} Yesterday ''The Times'' reported that {{ w | Japanese Knotweed}} is growing on {{ w | Google}}’s Irish headquarters property located at {{ w | Silicon Docks}} in {{ w | Dublin}}. According to The Times Google Inc has contacted nearby property owners in this regard. Japanese Knotweed is an {{ w | invasive plant}} known to cause extensive damage to buildings, roads and other property, and is very difficult to eradicate. Silicon Docks also houses Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Amazon, Etsy, Zalando, Groupon, PayPal, AirBnB, Uber and Zynga facilities. Japanese Knotweed is known to grow and spread at a very fast rate and to crowd out native plants. It has an extensive root system which can penetrate concrete and grows in a wide variety of soil and temperature conditions. It is extremely difficult to eradicate since it requires a complete removal of the root system which can grow as deep as 7 feet in the ground. It can take up to 3 years to remove a plant completely. Japanese Knotweed has spread in many parts of the world and is now prohibited in many locations. It is estimated to have cost Britain more than £1.25 billion so far. On October 6, 2017 {{ w | The Telegraph}} reported that a homeowner is suing the former owner of the home for £50,000. The suing couple bought the home in 2002 for £200,000 and claim they were not aware of the presence of Japanese Knotweed on the property. The home was recently valued at £500,000 and the couple estimates that it has dropped 10% in value due to the Japanese Knotweed growth. The former owner who is a 74 year old woman claims to have tried to rid the property of the weed unsuccessfully. Japanese Knotweed was introduced to England in the 19th century. {{haveyoursay}} == Sources == *{{source |url = https://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/ireland/seeds-of-destruction-at-googles-hq-g7b7s56t8 |title = Seeds of destruction at Google’s HQ |author = John Mooney |pub = The Times |date = October 8, 2017 }} *{{source |url = http://www.telegraph.co.uk/property/uk/property-buyers-sue-50000-japanese-knotweed-problem-homeowners/ |title = As property buyers sue over £50,000 Japanese knotweed problem, what all homeowners need to know about the plant |author = Sophie Christie |pub = The Telegraph |date = October 6, 2017 }} *{{source |url = https://www.wsj.com/articles/invasion-of-the-alien-species-1473432385 }} *{{source |url = https://www.irishtimes.com/life-and-style/homes-and-property/rampant-japanese-knotweed-undermining-house-values-and-a-hidden-cost-to-buyers-1.3126711 |title = Rampant Japanese knotweed undermining house values and a hidden cost to buyers |author = Madeleine Lyons |pub = Irish Times |date = June 21, 2017 }} *{{source |url = https://techlifeireland.com/tech-in-ireland/tech-companies-in-ireland/ |title = Tech Companies in Ireland |author = |pub = Tech Life Ireland |date = April 26, 2016 }} *{{source |url = http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/earth/greenpolitics/11185356/Homeowners-who-fail-to-control-Japanese-knotweed-face-criminal-prosecution-under-new-anti-social-behaviour-laws.html |title = Homeowners who fail to control Japanese knotweed face criminal prosecution under new anti-social beh[...]

Football: FC Bayern, Jupp Heynckes reaches agreement as club's head coach until season end

The 72-year-old came out of his retirement, and is to take the position on Monday. The contract runs until June 30, 2018. Heynckes has previously managed Bayern in three spells — 1987–1991, 2009 and 2011–2013. In 2013, he led Bayern to treble, winning the German league ([[Bundesliga]]), German Cup ({{W|DFB-Pokal}}), and [[UEFA Champions League]]. In May 2013, then 68-year-old Heynckes said of retiring, "Clubs want to do a generation change and you can not really do it with a 68-year-old." {{w|Pep Guardiola}} succeeded him as Bayern's head coach in 2013. Upon agreeing to coach Bayern again, yesterday, Heynckes said, {{translated quote|de|German language|Ich wäre zu keinem anderen Verein der Welt zurückgekehrt, aber der FC Bayern München ist eine Herzensangelegenheit für mich.|I wouldn't have returned to any other club in the world, but FC Bayern München are very close to my heart.}} Heynckes' predecessor {{W|Carlo Ancelotti}} was sacked on September 28, after a 3–0 loss against [[France|French]] [[Paris|capital]] club [[Paris St-Germain]] (PSG) in the UEFA Champions League group stage match. The [[Italy|Italian]] manager joined Bayern in 2016 after Guardiola left for [[England|English]] side [[Manchester City FC]]. Ancelotti led Bayern to a Bundesliga title, the club's fifth consecutive league title. But in the second season in charge of the German giants, Bayern is currently five points behind league table leaders and arch rivals Borussia Dortmund. After 3–0 defeat at PSG's home, Bayern's CEO {{w|Karl-Heinz Rummenigge}} said, {{translated quote|de|German language|Die Leistungen unserer Mannschaft seit Saisonbeginn entsprachen nicht den Erwartungen, die wir an sie stellen.

Canadian government settles lawsuit over children 'scooped' out of indigenous communities

2017-10-07T01:44:03Z

Darkfrog24: flashback to Catch-22 with major major major major {{Canada}} {{date|October 7, 2017}} The [[Canada|Canadian]] federal government of [[Justin Trudeau]] yesterday responded to a group of lawsuits by agreeing to pay {{w|Canadian dollar|C$}}750 million to the survivors of the "{{w|Sixties Scoop}}" program, in which 20,000 {{wikt|First Nations}} children were removed from their parents' households and placed with non-indigenous foster or adoptive parents. The plaintiffs claimed that this caused them mental and emotional problems, in addition to the loss of their ancestral culture. Carolyn Bennett, [[Canada]]'s Crown-Indigenous Relations Minister, announced the agreement. "I have great hope that because we've reached this plateau, this will never, ever happen in Canada again," Marcia Brown Martel, now Chief of the Beaverhouse First Nation, said of the decision. Martel was removed from her home as many as ten times before 1972. She and her sister were among the original plaintiffs. From the 1960s to 1980s, some of the children were sent out of the country to the [[United States]], [[Europe]] or [[New Zealand]]. Some of the plaintiffs say they were abused by their foster families and others do not. A separate settlement has been offered to the 150,000 children who were instead sent to institutions, such as boarding schools. "There is also no dispute about the fact that great harm was done," wrote [[Ontario]] Supreme Court Justice Edward P. Belobaba in a preliminary decision in February. "The 'scooped' children lost contact with their families. They lost their aboriginal language, culture and identity. Neither the children nor their foster or adoptive parents were given information about the children's aboriginal heritage or about the various educational and other benefits that they were entitled to receive. The removed children vanished 'with scarcely a trace.' " He did concede that the founders of the program meant well, but major sources agree it was subject to considerable culture clash, with social workers removing children from situations that were later found not to be abusive or neglectful. According to a lawyer for some of the plaintiffs, Jeffrey Wilson, this is the first time anyone has argued that the loss of a cultural identity in a lawsuit in a {{wikt|western world|Western}} country: "No First Nations case yet to this day has asked the question as to whether or not the loss of identity is an actionable wrong. Aboriginal title to property has been litigated, aboriginal title to identity has not," he told the ''[[The Guardian]]''. The First Nations people make up approximately four percent of Canada's population, at about 1.4 million people, and they suffer disproportionately from poverty, violence, addiction and crime. Canada is not the only country where native children were taken away from their families. From 1910 to 1970, the [[Australia]]n government collected {{w|Aboriginal [...]



Suicide attack leaves at least 22 dead, 35 injured in Balochistan

Pi zero: Protected "Pakistan: At least 18 killed, others wounded in suicide attack at Balochistan Sufi shrine": precaution ([Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite))


{{date|October 8, 2017}}{{Pakistan}}
According to varying reports, at least eighteen people were killed and at least 20 were injured in a suicide attack at Fateh Pur shrine in {{W|Jhal Magsi}} district, located in [[Pakistan]]'s western province of [[Balochistan (Pakistan)|Balochistan]] on Thursday.

Devotees had gathered at the shrine, built in honour of Saint Pir Rakhel Shah, for the annual anniversary ritual. A policeman reportedly stopped the attacker at the gate of shrine before the attacker detonated the bomb. Local official Asad Kakar said, "Suicide bomber struck outside the shrine at the time it was packed with people". The militant group [[Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant]] claimed responsibility for the attack via the ''{{W|Amaq News Agency}}''.

There have been several other attacks on Sufi shrines. In February, about 80 people were killed in a suicide attack in {{w|Lal Shahbaz Qalandar}}'s shrine in {{w|Sehwan Sharif|Sehwan}}, a town in [[Sindh]] province. About 50 people were killed in another attack on the shrine of Shah Noorani, located in {{w|Hub, Balochistan|Hub}}, Balochistan, on November 12, 2016. ISIL claimed responsibility for both.

Researchers find preserving spotted owl habitat may not require a tradeoff with wildfire risk after all

2017-10-05T21:21:09Z

Acagastya: Rejected the last text change (by Mikemoral) and restored revision 4354704 by Acagastya: Has to have one type of English. Look for “analyze”. Periods are used in English (US) {{Environment}} {{date|October 8, 2017}} In a study scheduled for publication in the December 1 issue of ''Forest Ecology and Management'', scientists from the {{w|University of California, Davis}}; {{w|USDA}} Forest Service Pacific Southwest Research Station; and {{w|University of Washington}} have found a way to resolve the conflict that has sprung up between protecting forests from increasingly frequent wildfires and droughts and preserving sufficient habitat for the endangered {{w|spotted owl}}, ''Strix occidentalis''. The study was performed in two national parks in [[California]], [[United States]]. [[File:Strix occidentalis Humboldt Redwoods Park cropped.jpg|thumb|left|A California spotted owl in Redwoods Park in California.{{image source|MPF}}]] For the past twenty-five years, spotted owl habitat preservation has focused on keeping 70% or more of the total ground area covered by natural tree canopy, a tree density that leaves forests prone to wildfires and trees more likely to die during droughts. Both wildfires and droughts have become more frequent in the years since the program began. However, the previous studies upon which the 70% figure was based only measured overall canopy coverage. In this work, researchers used aerial {{w|LiDAR}} (Light Detection And Ranging) imaging technology to scan areas within {{w|Kings Canyon National Park}} and {{w|Sequoia National Park}} in California. The regions were analyzed by distribution of foliage, tree height, and the sizes of the spaces between trees and stands. These data were then cross-referenced with decades of field studies showing the locations of hundreds of owl nests. They found that spotted owls clustered in areas with very tall trees and stands almost exclusively, over 150 feet (48 m), avoiding areas that only had moderate or low canopy, regardless of how dense or wide. "This could fundamentally resolve the management problem because it would allow for reducing small tree density, through fire and thinning," said lead author Malcolm North, of UC Davis and the USDA Pacific Southwest Research Station. "We've been losing the large trees, particularly in these extreme wildfire and high drought-mortality events. This is a way to protect more large tree habitat, which is what the owls want, in a way that makes the forest more resilient to these increasing stressors that are becoming more intense with climate change." [[File:Northern Spotted Owl.USFWS.jpg|thumb|right|A northern spotted owl in [[Oregon]].{{image source|U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service}}]] The spotted owl gained national prominence in the United States during the 1990s, when environmentalists' efforts to preserve its habitat resulted in federal measures forbidding logging on large swaths of land, as well as federal limits on the sales of harvested wood. There was a 1995 [[U.S. Supreme Court]] case which was preceded by lawsuits on the part of timber companies and by year[...]

Canadian Company subsidiary charged with discrimination against American workers

2017-10-02T19:07:55Z

Quinton Feldberg: {{tl|tasks|news|re-review}} {{tl|abandoned|October 9, 2017|userspace=}} {{date|October 2, 2017}} {{Crime and law}} On Thursday the US {{ w | Justice Department}} laid charges under the '''Buy American and Hire American''' {{ w | Executive order (United States)| Executive Order}} against Colorado-based Crop Production Services Inc., a subsidiary of {{ w | Agrium}} headquartered in {{ w | Calgary}}, {{ w | Alberta}}, {{ w | Canada}}. The DOJ decided to prosecute after at least three American workers failed to obtain employment with the company. It is alleged CPS hired foreign temporary workers under the {{ w | H-2A visa}} program to fill the jobs. The prosecution is the first lawsuit since the Executive Order was signed into law earlier this year by {{ w | President Trump}}. It was commenced after a settlement process failed. The company is charged under the {{ w | Immigration and Nationality Act}}. At issue are fifteen temporary technician positions that went to foreign workers and not to Americans. CPS is asked to pay back workers and may face other penalties. "The Justice Department will enforce the Immigration and Nationality Act in order to protect US workers as they are the very backbone of our communities and our economy," Attorney General of the United States {{ w | Jeff Sessions}} said.

Mohd Shah, an employee of the Malaysian government, testified that {{w|VX nerve agent}}, by international treaty a [[weapon of mass destruction]], caused Kim's death, and Judge Azmi Ariffin officially admitted tissue and fluid samples as evidence. Both Aisyah and Huong are subject to the [[death penalty]] if convicted of killing Kim. The samples were sealed in plastic when presented at court, but the judge and lawyers for both the prosecution and defense nonetheless wore protective gloves and masks to examine them. Both the North Korean government and Aisyah's lawyer have said the victim may have died of a heart attack or some cause other than VX nerve agent. Mohd Shah based his conclusion on VX nerve agent in Kim's system and on the timing of Kim's death: he expired on the way to a hospital, less than two hours after encountering Aisyah and Huong. He also testified Kim Jong Nam had six different medications in his system, one a common Viagra heart-condition treatment, but no indications of a heart attack when he examined Kim's body. He also said neither this nor the other medicines Kim was taking would have killed him quickly. Aisyah's lawyer, Gooi Soon Seng, argued the autopsy reports indicate only that Kim was killed by chemical poisoning, not necessarily by VX nerve agent, and Mohd Shah admitted under {{wikt|cross-examination}} he does not have much experience with VX and other nerve agents. Siti Aisyah, 25, and Doan Thi Huong, age given as 28 or 29, pled not guilty of murdering Kim Jong Nam on Monday, though they do not contest they met him. Both were represented by lawyers hired by their home countries' respective governments. Both women are on video approaching Kim in [[Kuala Lumpur]] [[Kuala Lumpur International Airport|International Airport]] where one of them sprayed him with liquid, but they both claimed they had been hired to spray travelers with a harmless substance as part of a prank TV show. Aisyah's lawyer, Gooi Soon Seng, told the press his client had already performed the prank several times, always with oil or pepper. According to the police, the two men who hired Huong and Aisyah were Hong Song Hac and Ri Ji U, North Koreans who avoided questioning by, respectively, fleeing Malaysia and remaining within the North Korean embassy. Huong's lawyer, Hisyam Teh Poh Teik, said after a prosecution phase of probably about two months, at the Judge's discretion the defense would proceed. P[...]



RBC: Canadian homes least affordable since 1990

2017-10-01T13:21:41Z

Ottawahitech: /* Sources */ add source that verifies " The British Columbia provincial government attempted to cool down home prices by enacting legislation in August of 2016 that amongst other measures implemented a fifteen percent tax on foreign buyers. " {{review}} {{date|October 18, 2017}} {{Canada}} Yesterday the {{ w | OSFI}}, Canada’s top banking regulator, announced changes to rules affecting Canadian {{ w | mortgages}}. The new rules will be implemented in January 2018 and will require homebuyers to qualify for a mortgage based on a higher mortgage interest rate than the rate they plan to pay. The new rules are estimated by {{ w | Toronto-Dominion Bank}} to impact at least 5-10% of homebuyers. Most buyers in Canada do not have the amount of money required to purchase a {{ w | home}} and require a mortgage loan (mortgage for short) for the purchase. A mortgage is linked the value of the home and used as {{ w | Security interest | security}} by lenders in cases of {{ w | mortgage default}}. {{ w | Financial institutions}} provide mortgages to buyers who qualify for mortgages based on mortgage rules that the OSFI defines. When a person applies to obtain a mortgage from a regulated financial institution, their income is assessed to gauge the ability of the borrower to repay the amount the institution lends. The borrower’s income is one of the financial resources a financial institution must verify. Financial institutions also check to see that the borrower does not take on more than 32% of their {{ w | income}} for mortgage payments, allowing the rest to be spent for other necessities, such as food, {{ w | transportation}}, {{ w | Taxation in Canada | taxes}}, etc. Mortgage payments are calculated using the amount of {{ w | Financial capital | capital}} borrowed, the mortgage {{ w | interest rate}} , and the {{ w | amortization}}. The capital is the amount of money the borrower requires. The amortization is the number of years required to pay off the amount owing, normally 25-30 years. Interest rates in Canada are expected to rise. The higher the rate the higher the payment. Home prices in many cities in Canada, especially those in Vancouver and Toronto, have been escalating precipitously in recent years. The reason for the tightening of the rules is to protect Canada from mass mortgage defaults as those that occurred in the United States during the {{ w | Great Recession in the United States | financial meltdown of 2007}}. The most expensive {{ w | housing market}} in Canada is located in {{w | Vancouver}}, {{w | British Columbia}}. The British Columbia provincial government attempted to cool down home prices by enacting legislation in August of 2016 that amongst other measures implemented a {{w |foreign buyers tax |fifteen percent tax}} on foreign buyers.

Repeal of Obamacare fails, again

This is the fourth time that the [[GOP|Republican Party]] has failed to repeal the ACA in the Senate. Most Republican politicians would like to scrap the current healthcare legislation, which was passed in 2010, under [[US Democratic Party|Democratic]] President [[Barack Obama]]. One of President [[Donald Trump]]'s election promises was to gut Obamacare. The United States, unlike many other developed countries, does not provide a national health care system to its people. Individuals are expected to buy insurance policies from private companies if their employer does not provide health insurance. In 2010, under President Barack Obama, federal legislation imposing minimum standards on private health insurance plans was passed for the first time in American history. The ACA also provides subsidies to help lower-income individuals purchase health insurance. Individuals request health care subsidies when filing their {{w|Premium tax credit|annual tax returns}}. The Republican Party has vowed to repeal the ACA, claiming it is too expensive and inefficient. But millions of Americans helped by subsidies have come to rely on it and are terrified they will be left with no access to health care if it is repealed. [[Mike Pence]], Vice President of the United States, warned last week that failure to pass the repeal legislation may leave the United States having a national health care system such as the one in Canada. {{HYS}} == Sources == *{{Source |url= http://www.nationalpost.com/obamacare+survives+concedes+last+gasp+repeal/14682718/story.html |author= |pub= The Associated Press, Financial Post |title= 'Obamacare' survives; GOP concedes on last-gasp repeal try |date= September 26, 2017 }} *{{Source |url= http://www.cnn.com/2017/09/26/politics/health-care-republican-senate-vote/index.html |author= Lauren Fox, MJ Lee, Dana Bash, Deirdre Walsh and Phil Mattingly |pub= CNN |title= Senate won't vote on GOP health care bill |date= September 26, 2017 }} *{{Source |url= https://globalnews.ca/news/3769085/mike-pence-canada-health-care-graham-cassidy/ |author= Alexander Panetta |pub= The Canadian Press |title= Mike Pence warns U.S. heading for Canada-style health care if Graham-Cassidy bill fails |date= September 26, 2017 }} *{{Source |url= https://www.forbes.com/sites/robertwood/2015/02/04/obamacare-tax-filing-backlash-there-will-be-blood/#49a54eb643d9[...]

Saudi Arabia to allow women drive

Pi zero: Changed protection level for "Saudi Arabia to allow women to drive": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite)) {{date|September 28, 2017}}{{Saudi Arabia}} On Tuesday, {{W|Salman bin Abdulaziz}}, the king of [[Saudi Arabia]], signed a royal decree to permit Saudi women to obtain a {{w|driver's license }} and drive. The new decree is to be under effect from June 2018. After the signing of the landmark decree, Saudi's foreign affairs ministry tweeted, {{translated quote|ar|Arabic language|بأمر سامي.. نظام المرور يسمح للمرأة بقيادة السيارة في المملكة|By order .. Traffic system allows women to drive the car in the Kingdom|dir=rlt}}. Saudi Arabia was the only country where women were prohibited from driving. A committee of ministers is to decide upon how to implement this decree, and provide recommendations within a month. A majority of the country's religious advisory {{w|Council of Senior Scholars (Saudi Arabia)|Council of Senior Scholars}} had agreed with the amendments. Though women would be issued driving licenses, their permission to drive would have to be in accordance with the [[Sharia|Shari'a]] law, the scholars said. Also, Saudi Arabia has a law about guardianship, which mandates women seek permission from male guardians before leaving home. The committee would make recommendations about scenarios like this. Last year, prince {{W|Alwaleed bin Talal}} issued a statement in support of eradicating this ban. The prince said, "Preventing a woman from driving a car is today an issue of rights similar to the one that forbade her from receiving an education or having an independent identity". He added, "They are all unjust acts by a traditional society, far more restrictive than what is lawfully allowed by the precepts of religion." The prince also cited economic concerns. In his statement, he said families had to rely on drivers when a female member had to travel, which could be avoided if women were allowed to drive. He said, "Having women drive has become an urgent social demand predicated upon current economic circumstances". {{w|Manal al-Sharif}}, who was punished for driving in Saudi Arabia, and who {{ w | Women to drive movement |advocated rights for women to drive}}, tweeted, "Today, the last country on earth to allow women to drive #Women2Drive#Daring2Drive we did it", after the announcement was made.

Uber London not to be issued with operator licence after September

2017-09-22T11:05:41Z

Pi zero: Changed protection level for "Uber London to lose operator licence after September": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite)) {{date|September 25, 2017}} {{United Kingdom}} On Friday, {{W|Transport for London}} (TfL) announced [[US]]-based {{wikt|taxi}} booking application {{W|Uber (company)|Uber}} would not get a renewed private hire operator license after their current permit expires at the end of the month. The regulatory body released an official statement on their website and stated Uber London Limited was "not fit and proper to hold a private hire operator license". TfL said Uber London "demonstrate[d] a lack of corporate responsibility" for reporting serious criminal offences, and for obtaining background of the drivers and medical certificates. In August, police said Uber allowed a driver despite allegations of {{w|sexual assault|sexually assaulting}} a passenger. The company has been accused of sexism and bullying. TfL in its statement also complained about possible use of "{{W|greyball}}" software to prevent officials from accessing the application for law enforcement duties. According to Uber's statistics, about 3.5 million people in {{w|London}} use Uber. There are some 40 thousand drivers tied with Uber within the British capital. Per the Private Hire Vehicles (London) Act 1998, Uber can appeal against TfL's decision within three weeks. Uber received an interim renewal for four months in May, and it is set to expire at the end of the month. To this announcement, Uber London's General Manager Tom Elvidge said, "By wanting to ban our app from the capital Transport for London and the Mayor have caved in to a small number of people who want to restrict consumer choice. If this decision stands, it will put more than 40,000 licensed drivers out of work and deprive Londoners of a convenient and affordable form of transport. To defend the livelihoods of all those drivers, and the consumer choice of millions of Londoners who use our app, we intend to immediately challenge this in the courts." He also added, "This ban would show the world that, far from being open, London is closed to innovative companies who bring choice to consumers." TfL said Uber's irresponsibility could compromise the safety and security of the public. In contrast, Uber's response said their service enhances safety. London mayor {{w|Sadiq Khan}}, on {{w|Facebook}}, said, "[...]all companies in London must play by the rules and adhere to the high standards we expect — particularly when it comes to the safety of customers. Providing an innovative service must not be at the expense of customer safety and security. I fully support TfL's decision — it would be wrong if TfL continued to license Uber if t[...]



Foreign workers paid thousands to obtain jobs in Canada

Ottawahitech: + background {{abandoned|October 5, 2017|userspace=Ottawahitech}} {{tasks|news|re-review}} {{date|September 21, 2017}} {{Canada}} The {{w|Supreme Court of British Columbia}} has certified a Class Action lawsuit against {{w|Mac's Convenience Stores}} (Mac's) and three immigration consultants. The case involves 450 foreign workers who allege they were enticed to come to Canada with promises of jobs. Each of the workers paid a fee of up to $8,500 to the consultants for a job with Mac's. The {{w| Class_action#Canada|Class Action}} lawsuit was certified on Monday by Justice Arne Silverman. The jobs were offered to the workers under the {{w|Temporary foreign worker program in Canada|Temporary Foreign Worker Program}} which specifies that fees for job placements must be paid by the employer. The government has not laid charges in this matter. One of the plaintiffs, Prakash Basyal, says he met one of the defendants at a job fair in Dubai. He interviewed with a representative of Mac's and signed a two-year contract for a low wage cashier's job in {{w|Edmonton, Alberta}}, and paid the agreed fee of $8,000. After he quit his job in Abu Dhabi, he arrived in {{w|Vancouver, British Columbia}} and received a permit allowing him to work for Mac's, but was told the job he contracted for was not available. He was then left with no choice but support himself working illegally at a bottle depot in Calgary where he was discovered by {{w|Canada Border Services Agency}} and arrested. He was handcuffed, detained and humiliated. Lawyers representing the workers claimed that abuses under the Program are common. They say this leaves foreign workers vulnerable. The defendants declined comment. In August the NDP government of British Columbia proposed a registry of temporary foreign workers. {{HYS}} == Sources == *{{Source |url = http://nationalpost.com/pmn/news-pmn/canada-news-pmn/court-certifies-class-action-suit-involving-450-foreign-workers-who-got-no-jobs |title = Court certifies class-action suit involving 450 foreign workers who got no jobs |pub = The Canadian Press |date = September 19, 2017 }} *{{Source |url = http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/foreign-workers-class-action-1.4297799 |title = Foreign workers allege 'life savings' paid for Mac's jobs that didn't exist |author =  Bethany Lindsay |pub = CBC News |date = September 19, 2017 }} *{{Source |url =http://www.courts.gov.bc.ca/jdb-txt/sc/17/16/2017BCSC1649.htm |pub = Supreme Court of British Columbia |title = 2017 BCSC 1649 Basyal v.

US toy retail giant Toys R Us files for bankruptcy in US, Canada

Pi zero: Changed protection level for "US toy retail giant Toys R Us files for bankruptcy in US, Canada": Archiving the article ([Edit=Allow only administrators] (indefinite) [Move=Allow only administrators] (indefinite)) {{date|September 21, 2017}}{{Economy and business}} On Monday night, [[New Jersey]], [[US]]-based toy retail giant {{W|Toys R Us}} filed for bankruptcy in the US as well as in [[Canada]]. The retailer filed it from [[Richmond, Virginia|Richmond]], [[Virginia]] for Chapter 11 bankruptcy code in the US, and a judge allowed a loan of over [[US$]]2 billion. According to the filing, the retail chain owns US$6.6 billion in assets, but has a debt of US$7.9 billion. They were under a roughly US$5 billion debt since the company underwent a three-way acquisition in 2005. {{w|Kohlberg Kravis Roberts}}, {{W|Bain Capital}}, and {{W|Vornado Realty Trust}} acquired Toys R Us for around US$7 to US$7.5 billion. After the US judge approved a loan, Toys R Us received about US$3 billion from the lenders to continue the business and survive a competitive market, and restructure their business model. E-commerce giant [[Amazon.com]], [[Walmart]] and {{W|Target Corporation|Target}} are some of the competitors for the conventional '{{wikt|brick and mortar}}' toy shop, with lower priced-merchandise and fast, cheap delivery. In a conference call in June, CEO {{W|Dave Brandon}} said "very, very aggressive pricing online" was causing problems. He also said the company was experiencing "significant weakness in demand for their products globally". Toys R Us are to clear a debt of US$400 million by May 2018. Toys R Us said they would continue to operate for the holiday season. Bankruptcy lawyer Jeff Gleit said Toys R Us "need to do both a financial restructuring as well as an operational restructuring" and "needs to modernize with the times". Last holiday season, Toys R Us made sales around US$4.5 billion. Overall, the company reported a US$29 million loss in 2016. CEO Brandon said, "Our objective is to work with our debt holders and other creditors to restructure the US$5 billion of long-term debt on our balance sheet, which will provide us with greater financial flexibility to invest in our business". Toys R Us employs more than 60 thousand people in 38 countries around the world in more than 1600 stores. The company's stocks fell by six percent after filing for Chapter 11 protection. US bankruptcy code Chapter 11 allows the company to restructure under a plan approved by the court. The company would also be shielded from creditors' claims during the process. For the stores located in Canada, Toys R Us filed bankruptcy in {{w|Ontario}} and are to undergo reorganisation. However, 259 stores located outside the US or Canada will not underg[...]

Hurricane Maria, now category 5, bears down on Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands

2017-09-19T23:55:37Z

Pi zero: accidental reversion during review(!) {{United States}} {{date|October 12, 2017}} According to the [[United States]] {{w|Department of Homeland Security}} on Monday, [[Puerto Rico]]'s exemption from the {{w|Merchant Marine Act of 1920|Jones Act}}, which temporarily lifted the rule requiring that only U.S.-owned ships might carry goods between U.S. ports, was allowed to expire on Sunday rather than being renewed. The island commonwealth had been given a temporary exemption from this law to allow foreign ships to aid the delivery of relief supplies after {{w|Hurricane Maria}}, which struck Puerto Rico last month. Puerto Ricans and lawmakers had asked for an extension of the waiver in light of the island's current difficulties. "We believe that extending the waiver is unnecessary to support the humanitarian relief efforts on the island[...] There is an ample supply of Jones Act-qualified vessels to ensure that cargo is able to reach Puerto Rico," reads a statement from Homeland Security Press Secretary David Lapan. The Jones Act of 1920 requires that all ships carrying cargo directly from one U.S. port to another must be built, operated and owned by U.S. personnel. Puerto Rico, a U.S. commonwealth, falls under its jurisdiction. President [[Donald Trump]] issued a temporary waiver of this requirement for Puerto Rico on September 28 to help the relief effort. However, there were also concerns about supplies sitting idle in ports for lack of organized distribution and truck drivers to take them where they were needed. Some foreign ships may take until October 18 to complete deliveries. [[Republican party (United States)|Republicans]] [[Marco Rubio]] and [[John McCain]] were among those in the [[US Congress|U.S. Congress]] who had urged President Trump to issue the waiver, though McCain supported making the exemption permanent: "Now that the temporary Jones Act waiver for Puerto Rico has expired, it is more important than ever for Congress to pass my bill to permanently exempt Puerto Rico from this archaic and burdensome law," he told the ''Huffington Post''. "Until we provide Puerto Rico with long-term relief, the Jones Act will continue to hinder much-needed efforts to help the people of Puerto Rico recover and rebuild from Hurricane Maria." In September, Puerto Rico was nicked by the same {{w|Hurricane Irma}} that left Florida in disarray but then pummeled head-on by Hurricane Maria. The crisis displaced thousands of people and led to extraordinary rainfall and flash flood scares after a large crack appeared in the Guajataca Dam.

Equifax data breach involves 100,000 Canadians

2017-09-19T23:27:49Z

The Canadian Press reported today that Credit Agency Equifax Canada acknowledged that 100,000 Canadian accounts have been breached when the company’s website was compromised earlier this year. On Sept 7 it was reported that 143 million Americans have been affected by the breach as well as an undisclosed number of Canadians and British citizens. The announcement followed a report on Friday that Canada’s privacy watchdog has started an investigation into the matter.

The data breach has come to public attention only recently even though it happened in earlier this year. The breach happened when the Apache Struts servers which Equifax uses to store information was apparently not patched with security updates for some months allowing hackers to take advantage of the vulnerability. The data was unsecured between May 13 and July 30th this year. The breach only affected data stored in the United States. Equifax itself was unaware the breach happened until July 29.

The announcement today was made by Equifax Canada president, Lisa Nelson. Nelson apologized to Canadian consumers whose data was breached and stated that Equifax was unable to provide information until its own investigation is completed. Affected Canadians will receive instructions via mail from Equifax Canada. They will also receive the same benefits their American counterparts received at the beginning of this month. Even though the breach only affected data stored in the United States, Canadians without a social security number were excluded from Equfax’s offer to provide free access to files for year.
