Government emails contradict Liberal claims on fate of First Nation education dollars

first_imgEarlier that same day, an Aboriginal Affairs spokesperson emailed APTN a response from department bureaucrats on the First Nation education money confirming $1.2 billion still existed on the books.“The remaining funds are still available,” said spokesperson Amanda Gordon, who was in the office of former Aboriginal affairs minister Bernard Valcourt, in an Oct. 2, 2015, email.Months earlier in April during the lock-up for what would prove to be the last Harper federal budget, a federal Finance official repeatedly stated the $1.2 billion for First Nation education remained on the books in the “fiscal framework.”The $1.2 billion figure was what was left over from the $1.9 billion the Harper government tied to passage of the controversial First Nation Control of First Nation Education Act which was rejected in 2014 by First Nation chiefs.The Harper government said at the time the money would only flow if the Assembly of First Nations supported the bill.Knowing education to be a sore political spot in the relationship between First Nations and the Harper government, the Liberals jumped out early with the $2.6 billion education promise which Prime Minister Justin Trudeau unveiled on the campaign trail last August.The NDP pounced, accusing the Liberals of making a promise based on money that did not exist.A close inspection of the promise revealed the Liberals were really only committing $900 million in new money which would be added to $1.7 billion the party believed the Conservatives had set aside for education.The Liberals, it seems, made a big assumption in their promise. A large chunk of the promised money, about $500 million, came from a 4.5 per cent escalator in education funding the Conservatives also tied to passage of the ill-fated legislation on education.As the record shows, only $1.2 billion was ever set aside for First Nation education. It remains unclear why the Liberals chose to base their election education promise on money that was never there.Now it seems the Liberal government is trying to prepare the groundwork ahead of the next federal budget which may contain education funding that won’t match what was promised by the party to First Nation students on the campaign trail.APTN contacted Finance Minister Bill Morneau and Bennett’s office seeking clarification on the contradictions between the record and the statement by the Indigenous Affairs minister.A spokesperson for Finance said in an emailed statement that there was now only $241 million left in the fiscal framework.“In budget 2015 much of this provisioned allocation was removed, but not announced,” said David Barnabe, a spokesperson for the Jorge Barrera APTN National NewsIndigenous Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett’s claim the previous Conservative government spent all the money set aside for First Nation education—leaving her government in a hole when it comes to fulfilling its $2.6 billion promise on the issue—is not supported by the record.Bennett said in the House of Commons during question period Friday the previous Conservative government of Stephen Harper “removed” money set aside for First Nation education from the federal Finance department’s books.After repeatedly dodging APTN’s questions on the issue, Bennett finally admitted the money on which the Liberals based their $2.6 billion election education promise doesn’t exist.“Sadly, I can confirm that the previous government removed the promised additional funding for first nations education that it had promised,” said Bennett, responding to questions from the NDP on the issue. “I am saddened by that revelation, but we are committed to making the appropriate investments to close that gap.”However, the minister’s claim it’s the Conservative’s fault contradicts information supplied to APTN by Finance and Aboriginal Affairs (as the department was known at the time) officials in October, near the end of last year’s federal campaign.Those departments stated there was $1.2 billion set aside in the books for First Nation education, but it would be up to the next federal government to decide what to do with the money.“The funds remain in the fiscal framework. Following the federal election, the government will determine the best use of these funds,” said Stephanie Rubec, a spokesperson for the Department of Finance, in an Oct. 2, 2015, email.Click to enlarge screenshot of emailslast_img read more

The Latest Steve Wynn again denies misconduct accusations

BOSTON — The Latest on hearings in Massachusetts on sexual misconduct allegations at Wynn Resorts (all times local):3:45 p.m.Steve Wynn is again denying accusations of sexual misconduct after gambling regulators in Massachusetts released a report on how his former company responded to the allegations.The casino mogul wasn’t in attendance Tuesday when the state’s gaming commission opened a series of hearings into the response.Lawyer Brian Kelly says in a statement his client denies all allegations of nonconsensual sex.He also stressed that Steve Wynn isn’t the focus of the hearings. Regulators aren’t focused on the truth of the allegations but rather how long company officials were aware of them and how they responded.The hearings have implications for the company’s Massachusetts casino license and Encore Boston Harbor, the $2.6 billion resort it plans to open in June.___11:30 a.m.A report by Massachusetts casino regulators has found that Wynn Resorts executives concealed for years allegations of sexual misconduct against company founder Steve Wynn.The report by the state Gaming Commission’s investigative team doesn’t make a recommendation to regulators but concludes saying the five-member panel should evaluate the company’s recent reforms in the context of the report’s findings.The report was released Tuesday as the commission opened a series of hearings on whether Wynn officials knowingly hid information about the allegations, which Steve Wynn has denied, when it sought a casino license in 2013. The hearings have implications for Encore Boston Harbor, the $2.6 billion Boston-area resort the company plans to open in June.Wynn Resorts didn’t dispute the facts of the nearly 200-page report and said it represents a “complete review.”—-1:18 a.m.Massachusetts gambling regulators are holding hearings and releasing a long-awaited report into how Wynn Resorts handled allegations of sexual misconduct against company founder Steve Wynn.The state Gaming Commission has been investigating, in part, whether company officials knowingly hid information about the allegations when the state was considering its application for a license in 2014.The series of hearings opening Tuesday in Boston have implications for the Las Vegas company’s Massachusetts casino license and Encore Boston Harbor, the $2.6 billion resort in Everett it plans to open in June.Wynn Resorts recently went through a similar review in Nevada where it was handed down a record $20 million fine but allowed to keep its casino license. Steve Wynn has denied the claims but resigned as CEO last year.The Associated Press read more

UN conference pledges to stamp out illiteracy in East Asia SouthEast Asia

“We cannot in all conscience abandon millions of adults and young people to a fate of lifelong illiteracy,” said UNESCO Director-General Koïchiro Matsuura at the opening of the two-day meeting in Beijing. “This is unacceptable in the 21st century.”Those attending the conference – education ministers, first ladies, policymakers, civil society representatives, education experts and members of international organizations – discussed family literacy, intergenerational teaching, and literacy to promote health and economic self-sufficiency.Compared to the global illiteracy rate of 20 per cent – or 774 million people being able to neither read nor write – there is a high literacy rate in East Asia, South-East Asia and the Pacific of 91.7 per cent.Yet while countries such as China and Indonesia have made great strides in curtailing illiteracy in recent decades, there is a wide disparity among nations in the region. In the Pacific, Papua New Guinea has a 60 per cent literacy rate, while Tonga and Samoa have a 98 per cent rate. It is estimated that 125 million adults in the region have poor reading and writing skills. Reflecting persistent gender inequality, women account for 70 per cent of those who are illiterate.“Women who can read are more likely to be advocates for their own children’s education,” said United States First Lady Laura Bush, who serves as Honorary Ambassador for the UN Decade of Literacy, in a video address to the conference.At the close of the meeting, participants highlighted the need to ensure literacy in people’s mother tongues before national languages, as well as the importance of teaching migrants to read and write.“External aid remains insufficient to meeting the Education For All goals,” Mr. Matsuura noted, appealing for increased support to end illiteracy from the international community and donors.Only $2.4 billion was earmarked for the Education For All programme, far short of the estimated $11 billion necessary to meet goals.The conference in Beijing – called Literacy Challenges in East Asia, South-East Asia and the Pacific: Building Partnerships and Promoting Innovative Approaches – is one of the six regional conferences being convened to bolster literacy worldwide. The first took place in Doha, Qatar, this March, and four others are slated to take place by the end of next year in Mali, India, Costa Rica and Azerbaijan. 2 August 2007A United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) conference to tackle illiteracy in East Asia, South-East Asia and the Pacific has wrapped up, with participants calling for strong political commitment and close cooperation between governments and civil society organizations. read more

Ohio State mens lacrosse hoping to lock up top4 finish in ECAC

Ohio State men’s lacrosse looks to lock up a top-four finish in the Eastern College Athletic Conference and a berth in the conference playoffs this weekend against Air Force. OSU (8-3, 3-2) is currently tied for third in the ECAC with Fairfield. About two weeks ago, the OSU men’s lacrosse team was reeling. The Buckeyes were coming off a 9-4 loss to Loyola (Md.) to cap off a month that saw them lose three of six games and drop to 1-2 in ECAC play. With dreams of making it to the postseason slowly slipping into fantasy, OSU needed to turn things around. But two games later, the Buckeyes are coming off back-to-back conference wins against Hobart and Michigan as they head to Colorado to seal a top-four finish and a playoff spot. Senior attacker Nick Liddil said it was about getting back to basics for OSU. “We just had to focus on us and do the things that we know how to do and play within ourselves,” Liddil said. “That’s what got us out of our rough patch.” A big issue for the Buckeyes during March was an inconsistent offense. Only scoring four times each during losses against Notre Dame and Loyola, OSU was struggling. In recent weeks, though, Logan Schuss has helped turn the team around. The senior attacker’s five goals led the Buckeyes to a 17-8 victory against Michigan Saturday. OSU coach Nick Myers said Schuss getting back in the swing of things was a contributing factor in OSU’s turnaround. “Offensively, we hit a bit of a wall I think,” Myers said. “After that Loyola game, we hit the rest button a little bit and got back to basics, focused on fundamentals, got a little faster. We’re sharing the ball and it’s been great to see Logan get back in a rhythm.” Senior midfielder Dominique Alexander said he knows, though, the trip to the playoffs can be hard. “The juniors and seniors, we’ve been up there before, and we know this is no cakewalk,” Alexander said. “Our coaches explained to us today that there are still two spots left in our conference tournament and about five teams that are competing for that.” The Buckeyes are scheduled to take on Air Force in United States Air Force Academy, Colo., Saturday at 2 p.m. read more

Expanded Super50 a great stepping stone — Adams

(CMC) The region’s new director of cricket, Jimmy Adams, believes this year’s expanded Regional Super50 was a major stepping stone in helping players to set new standards of achievement.During the tournament last month, the eight teams divided into two groups and played each other twice, leading to an extended preliminary round.Jimmy Adams (Photo: CMC)Adams, who last month took over the high-profile role from Englishman Richard Pybus, said the new development was critical to the long-term improvement of the game.“I think the first thing for me is that we got a chance [to play so many games]. I’m thankful for the opportunity the players got to play such a long tournament,” the former Test captain noted.“I think the first thing for me was how much cricket we play and certainly to get the finalists to play 10 games, the losing semi-finalists nine, and everybody else eight games, I think was a step in the right direction.”He added: “But just to play as many games as we did play and getting batsmen [among the runs]. We had quite a few three-figure performances from some of our top batsmen. Going back a few years, they were a rarity.“So I think it helps … to have the amount of games that we had played, so that for me was a big plus.”Eleven hundreds were scored in the tournament, with the returning Kieran Powell notching three and current West Indies players Kraigg Brathwaite and Shai Hope getting two apiece.Two centuries came in the first semi-final, courtesy of Chadwick Walton and Jermaine Blackwood, as Jamaica Scorpions piled up a regional List A record 434 against Trinidad and Tobago Red Force.Last year there were only three centuries scored and not a single score over 300.Adams, who played 54 Tests and 127 One-Day Internationals for West Indies, said the standard set in the recent Super50 was one which needed to be maintained, but pointed out that getting acclimatised to the new professional level would take time.“Some of the performances we got in Barbados and Antigua were very encouraging, and just to have players who are starting to appreciate more and more what sort of standard is expected from players who are trying to make it to the next level, I think that helps as well – communicating that very clearly,” he explained.

A perfect weekend getaway

first_imgThe land which echoes enchantment and romance that can put you in trance, a place where every bit of nature’s wonders are at its zenith, a site which could bring solace to your soul – it is the one and only Henry’s Island. As history outlines, this place is named after a British explorer who surveyed the beach and the adjoining areas back in the 19th century. For those who want to take a break from their mundane lifestyles and breathe in ‘fresh air’, Henry’s Island could be a peerless weekend gateway with your friends and family. Apart from its lush greenery, the uniqueness of Henry’s Island lies on the fact that it is an abode of serenity and tranquility. The gift of its nature is hidden in the pleasure of taking joy in silence, which speaks volumes unlike any other noisy, overcrowded urban set ups. Forget about gadgets and, of course, your mobiles and embrace the peace of mind you had the thirst for. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfLocated approximately 140 kilometers away from Kolkata, Henry’s Island near Bakkhali in West Bengal is a must-visit destination because of its major attractions, including a watch-tower where one can climb and get a panoramic view of the entire beach, woods of the mangrove and the Bheri. If you are interested in fisheries, then Bheris – large shallow lakes dedicated to pisciculture – could offer you to have a look at varied types of fishes (if you are lucky enough). Nearly thirty of these Bheris are scattered across the beach. Fishes are also up for purchase at a government price. Some birds like Lesser Whistling Ducks, Eurasian Wigeon, Common Snipe, Black-Rumped Flameback, Kingfisher, Gadwall, Ruddy Turnstone, Red Knot, and Streak-throated Woodpecker, among others also add charm to its beauty. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveYour excursion to this silent island could be paradisiacal as soon as you step a foot on it. Amidst complete calmness of its own kind, one can truly live up the moments of love with your loved ones. The cool breeze of fresh air, slight movement of leaves of the Casuarina trees, sun-kissed horizon at the onset of dawn, star-lit sky at the time of the on-fall of dusk clubbed with the pacifying sounds of the natural flow of Bay of Bengal, a trip to Henry’s Island is a magnanimous experience for all the nature lovers to unearth true meaning of life. Reaching the destination by rail or road is not a tough job at all. There is an easy access of WBSTC bus service from Karunamoyee or Esplanade. Also, you can hire private cars as an alternative, which would take approximately 3 to 4 hours to reach the island. You can also take delight in the journey by train. The nearest railway station to Henry Island is Namkhana. There are trains at regular intervals from Sealdah via Lakhsmi kantapur and Kakdwip to Namkhana. If you prefer to start early, then catch the first train which starts at around 4 am. Sabyasachi Nath, who is the resident of Kolkata and a travel enthusiast, says, “To add frolic to your journey, it is advisable to take a break at Diamond Harbour and enjoy the beautiful sunset over the river if you start your expedition late. After travelling a certain distance ahead, stop at the ferry ghat of river Hatania Doania creek on your way to the white-sand beach as you and your car require crossing the river by launch. Also, this particular area is swarming with fishermen and comprises a small market for locals to buy their daily products.”Arya Bandyopadhyay, who is a photographer by profession and an avid traveller also highlights, “If you want to enjoy peace, Henry’s Island is the ideal destination. West Bengal Fisheries Department maintains their own guest houses near the island at a decent price.” Henry’s Island doesn’t have much to offer in terms of food. However, it will not disappoint you. Food is available only at the resorts you check in. Luchi-Alubhaja, rice, dal, desi-murgir jhol and the likes are served hot and fresh. Do not expect to be ‘digital’ in any way – there are no ATM’s in and around the private beach. So, carry cash. Neelkantha Barman, manager of Hotel Amarabati at Bakkhali opines that “Henry’s Island is blessed with its magnificent beauty. The best time to visit here is from December to January. However, areas in and around the island needs to be further maintained by the government as far as cleanliness is concerned. To reach there, vessel service should have a quicker access to tourists. I personally think that a little attention to the development of this region would certainly improve the beauty of the adjoining areas and help in promoting West Bengal Tourism.” Apart from all the other spots, Benfish harbor and Fraserganj beach are the two interesting spots on your way to the island. Moreover, Crocodile Park or the Crocodile Breeding Center at Bakkhali near Henry’s Island could also be a great option to switch to. This park is less-known and has a huge collection of crocodiles – ranging from babies to old crocodiles. The coastal area has something beautiful in its store to offer every time you visit there. Discover the surprises which describe the island as being possessed with its arresting glamour.last_img read more

Dashlane wants to automate passwords in 2018

first_imgDashlane wants to automate passwords in 2018 by Martin Brinkmann on January 06, 2018 in Internet – Last Update: May 22, 2018 – 7 commentsPasswords are everywhere. You use them to sign in to operating systems and devices, web services, email accounts, computer games, audio and video chat services, or websites that you have user accounts at.If you are tech savvy, you know that it is important to use unique secure passwords for accounts. This is best done with the help of a password manager unless you only use a single account on the Internet.Password managers of today assist users in multiple ways. They store passwords, come with sure password generation options, and allow you to sync between devices often for that extra bit of comfort.What most don’t do is make the managing of passwords easier. Dashlane, makers of the popular Dashlane password manager, wants to change that.Tip: Check out our review of Dashlane 5 here.The company announced Project Mirror the other day. Project Mirror is Dashlane’s attempt at giving “you back control of your digital identity” so that the “logins and all other digital identification data are safe,” “accessed only by you” and “entirely automated.”While you could say that most password managers ensure the first two goals, it is different when it comes to the third. Sure, LastPass, Dashlane and some other password managers support the automatic changing of passwords for select services, but only for a limited number of supported sites. Dashlane introduced inbox scan in 2015 to improve automation further.Project Mirror is an evolution of earlier automation technologies according to Dashlane. The company wants to release a feature it calls Critical Account Protection as the first step towards that ambitious goal.What does it do?In a single click, this feature will import and secure your most important passwords in Dashlane, identifying any high-risk accounts and automatically resetting and securing those credentials.From your iPhone or Android device, you will be able to effortlessly identify, secure, and store your entire portfolio of passwords.The feature imports and identifies important passwords from email accounts you connect to the service. It runs a risk analysis of all accounts then and highlights accounts that have a high-risk assessment.The most interesting bit of the process is that users will be able to use Dashlane to automatically reset and secure the credentials (by updating them from within the application with minimal effort on the user’s side).In seconds, Critical Account Protection will allow you to link your email accounts, scan and view a detailed Critical Account report, and lock down any accounts you want completely protected.Dashlane published a video that demonstrates the functionality.Closing WordsThe information is scarce at this point in time. It seems however that Dashlane will use information about data breaches and hacks in the account analysis. This closes the information gap somewhat that exists and assists users who don’t follow IT news in securing their accounts after breaches.It is unclear right now if Dashlane will support only select accounts with the automation functionality — resetting and setting new passwords — or if automation covers the bulk of services out there.Now You: What’s your take on Dashlane’s initiative?SummaryArticle NameDashlane wants to automate passwords in 2018DescriptionDashlane announced Project Mirror recently; Project Mirror is Dashlane’s attempt at giving “you back control of your digital identity” so that the “logins and all other digital identification data are safe,” “accessed only by you” and “entirely automated.”Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more
