Ottawa wont get involved in police shootings in Nunavut

first_imgKent Driscoll Mark BlackburnAPTN National NewsA spokesperson for the minister responsible for the RCMP says it’s too early for the department to get involved in the Mounties’ affairs despite the number of police shootings in the territory over the past few months.“It’s premature to comment while the Ottawa Police Service investigations are on-going,” said Scott Bardsley, a spokesperson for Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale. “The results of these investigations will provide an impartial review of the incidents.The RCMP is responsible for policing the 1.7 million square kilometre territory and the 35,000 people who live in its remote communities.In the last six months, officers have been involved in the deaths of three men.The latest shooting occurred May when police shot and killed Jeremy Nivviaq in Hall Beach, NU.Ottawa Police have been called in the investigate the shooting.The results of the investigation will not be released to the public.To date, no Mountie has been charged or disciplined for any of the shootings.Paul Okalik, former premier and minister of justice in Nunavut said the reviews of police shootings in Nunavut must be more transparent.In March, Okalik called for a study on whether Nunavut should have its own police force.“I want to see a review of perhaps aboriginal policing in our smaller communities so that we can recruit our own, and serve smaller communities with local police forces, that can so a job that is currently the job of the RCMP,” said Okalik.But the review Okalik is calling for won’t be done by Goodale.APTN asked the minister if he was concerned about the number of shootings in such a short period of time.The minister’s office did not answer that question.Instead, in an email statement said the RCMP is trained to deal with these situations.“All members are trained in de-escalation techniques and are instructed to consider all intervention options based on subject behaviour, situational factors, tactical considerations and officer perceptions,” said Bardsley.The other men shot and killed in Nunavut in recent months are Charles Qirngnirq, 21 who was killed in Gjoa Haven Dec. 19, 2016. And a 20-year-old man in Pond Inlet who died in March, 2017. Police are not releasing the man’s name or whether officers shot him or he killed himself.Calls requesting an interview with RCMP Nunavut Superintendent Mike Jeffrey were not returned.Police have also been a target in Nunavut. In 2007, Const. Douglas Scott was shot and killed in Kimmirut. RCMP Const. Jurgen Seewald was killed in March 2001, in Cape Dorset, NU.Hunter Tootoo, the Member of Parliament for Nunavut, said the shootings show more resources are needed.“The shootings are very tragic and unfortunately serve as a reminder of something that I have long advocated for – the need for more Mental Health Resources in Nunavut,” he said in an email.kdriscoll@aptn.calast_img read more

Haida Elders receive honorary degrees for their commitment to language preservation

first_imgLaurie HamelinAPTN NewsTaalgyaa’adad (Betty Richardson) had no idea that she would ever be celebrating an honorary degree when she joined the Skidegate Haida Immersion Program (SHIP) two decades ago.“Never, never in my wildest dreams did I think anything like this would ever happen,” said Taalgyaa’adad.“But here we are, we’ve got our Doctorate and it’s wonderful, it’s just heartwarming.”Taalgyaa’adad is one of nine Haida Elders who received an Honorary Doctor of Laws Degree from Vancouver Island University (VIU) for recording and revitalizing the Skidegate dialect of Haida’s oral language.(Taalgyaa’adad at the ceremony at the Vancouver Island University. Photo: Laurie Hamelin/APTN)Since the group began 21 years ago, it’s translated and produced hundreds of CD Roms, developed an app with thousands of words, wrote a glossary and many children’s books.“It’s the most important thing in the world for our language to be preserved because it means it’s preserving us as people,” said Taalgyaa’adad.“We’re preserving our language and carrying it on to the next generation.”Taalgyaa’adad joined SHIP in 2000 after her husband passed away.The group met five days a week, ten months a year and Taalgyaa’adad says it gave her a purpose.“It’s given me the will to wake up every morning,” said Taalgyaa’adad.“I can’t die today I have to go to school,” she says while laughing.The Elders lived through Residential school and were forbidden to practice their culture and speak their own language.Learning or holding onto their traditional language wasn’t easy.“Fortunately we lived with our grandmother until I was 13 years old and my grandmother spoke fluent Haida, in fact she spoke very broken English,” said Taalgyaa’adad.“And I had an Aunt who also lived with us who spoke fluent Haida so the two of them speaking back and forth to one another is where I learned.”The Elders’ family members and Haida political leaders attended the Convocation in Nanaimo B.C. on June 3.Everyone packed the ballroom of the Coast Bastion Hotel after the ceremony to celebrate with dinner and speeches.Taalgyaa’adad’s oldest son, Kilslay Kaji Sting spoke at the event.“Language is who we are, language is how we articulate and express our world view,” said Kilslay Kaji Sting.“Our story as a nation is an ancient one, we’ve been in our homelands for thousands of years, for hundreds of generations and thrived and developed a culture as good as any on this earth throughout all of history,” she said. “And right now it’s fighting against this colonial narrative that puts us less than the other people, less than general society, not even being human enough to have rights.“And to do that they attempt to separate us from our lands, they separate us from our stories and the worst trick they tried was separate us from our culture and language.”(Elders on stage at the Vancouver Island University ceremony. Photo courtesy: VIU)Kilslay Kaji Sting is proud of his mother’s hard work and wants to see his entire community speak Haida again – like it was before colonization.“I want it to be functional in Haida business and I want to be able to go to a Haida feast and talk in Haida and talk to other people in Haida,” said Kilslay Kaji Sting.“I’m one generation removed from that.  My mom and dad could do that, I’m the first one that couldn’t.“Well we’re changing that, by the time I check out it will be changed.”Chancellor Louis Mandell from Vancouver Island University says it is fitting that SHIP be recognized during the United Nations Year of Indigenous Languages.“This year we seek healing, from the violent disruption and interruption of language transmission and recovery of humanity’s linguistic heritage.“Indigenous languages are disappearing around the world at unprecedented rates, with Canada one of the worst examples.”“We are overwhelmed with admiration and inspiration, and celebrate SHIP’s love and lasting legacy.”Now that the Elders have reached such remarkable success, it doesn’t mean the project is finished says Taalgyaa’adad.“A lot of the times I wake up in the middle of the night thinking about a word and I’ve got a pen and paper by my bed and I’ll write the word down that has come to me.”“I’ve known it, but it’s been sort of hidden in the back of my mind.”“Words are added every day, in fact words are being added today as we speak.” read more

Keystone XL pipeline costs to nearly double to as much as US10B

CALGARY — Costs for the long-delayed Keystone XL pipeline will likely balloon from US$5.4 billion to as much as US$10 billion, TransCanada Corp. confirmed Friday, as the project marked its sixth year in regulatory limbo.CEO Russ Girling told the Wall Street Journal that the price tag could rise to a “number that gets you into the high single digits to a 10 number.”[np_storybar title=”Keystone XL battle enters sixth year” link=””%5DFriday marks the sixth year to the day TransCanada Corp. filed an application with the U.S. State Department to build the 1,897-kilometre pipeline. Since then it has become not only the most polarizing energy project in North America, but also has taken on a life of its own almost separate from the Calgary-based company that proposed the project. Keep reading. [/np_storybar]Company spokesman Shawn Howard confirmed the remarks.“It is worth noting that increased project costs mean higher costs for refiners and consumers — and those costs will likely be passed on to all of us as consumers,” he added.TransCanada marked Friday what it called an “unfortunate milestone” for Keystone XL — six years precisely since it applied for a U.S. permit to build the pipeline.Keystone XL would link 830,000 barrels per day of mostly oilsands crude to an existing network that feeds into the lucrative U.S. Gulf Coast refining market.Environmental concerns over the project range from a potential spill’s impact on drinking water to the enabling of further oilsands development and its accompanying increase in greenhouse gas emissions.Backers of the project say it would create construction jobs and displace crude imports to the U.S. from unfriendly regimes.“Our goal is to have more oil moving through pipelines which are safer, produce fewer emissions and provide safe, secure and reliable supplies of oil to American refineries,” said TransCanada president of development Alex Pourbaix.Meanwhile, Reuters reported this week that U.S. hedge funds are eyeing a restructuring of TransCanada.Jack M.

Can you guess what Irelands most recessionproof industry is

first_imgWE REPORTED YESTERDAY that nearly 15% of all Ireland’s small businesses failed during the recession.But what was the most robust industry?An analysis by risk analysts shows that Agriculture and Fishing start ups that were founded in 2007 were most likely to survive the downturn, while start-ups in the hospitality, construction and IT sectors had the highest rates of failure.The survival rate for agriculture and fishing start-ups was 74.7%, some distance ahead of the average of 48.4%.The second most successful sector was utilities, with 65.7% of start-ups surviving the worst of the down turn.Vision-net managing director Christine Cullen said: “Our data confirms the strength of the Irish food industry and the important role it is playing in our economic recovery.”“The CSO’s data also shows that Ireland’s business start-up culture remains strong, despite the difficulty recessionary trading conditions of recent years. The CSO findings…are very positive and matches what our own data has consistently highlighted.”Read: Recovering from the rains: Fishing industry battles on>Read: Atlantic mackerel deal thrashed out but Iceland holds firm and doesn’t sign>last_img read more

Internet Gutter Sociopath Community

first_imgThe internet is a strange and terrifying place. It’s enabled us to connect with one another, advance the causes of science and culture, and unite the world with a glowing net of data. It’s also enabled people with very… particular interests to find each other online. In this new ongoing series, we’ll be dipping into the Internet Gutter – the strange subcultures and weird worlds lurking in the dark pockets of the World Wide Web.Sociopath CommunityThey say that one out of every 25 people qualifies for the DSM-IV definition of “sociopath.” That’s a person “characterized by a lack of regard for the moral or legal standards in the local culture.” Or, in layman’s terms, a total dick who doesn’t care that they’re a dick. Warning signs of a sociopath include a charming outward nature that hides a manipulative core, as well as a lack of regret for their actions. Our friends at Wikihow have more.For modern society to run, we can’t all be sociopaths. Typically, they either subsume their lack of morals out of the desire to blend in or become criminals and get profiled on cheap basic cable TV shows.But the internet allows all kinds of people to find each other, and it shouldn’t surprise you that a whole world of self-described sociopaths congregate on a website made especially for that purpose. Welcome to Sociopath Community.Introductions“This site is 18+ and NSFW with only 1 rule: Do not ruin the usability of this site (such as spam, flooding, or illegal activities).”That’s how Sociopath Community introduces itself, and it isn’t kidding. The users of this site are all self-diagnosed sociopaths, and as such don’t really give a rat’s ass about your feelings. So naturally they hang out on a website that looks like a relic from the late 1990s, sharing South Park memes, and fantasizing about mass murder.The best way to get a handle on the population of the Sociopath Community is from the Selfie Thread, where posters share unfiltered images of themselves. Plenty of V for Vendetta T-shirts, vape pens, and dirty bathroom mirrors.Another good place to start is the Memorable Quotes From Forum Members thread. That’s where long-time posters regurgitate their favorite monologues and one-liners to each other. What rises to the top on this site is truly special, and we’ll share some of it later.Flame War CentralSo how do you think a website full of people incapable of feeling empathy for each other get along? Not very well. Just about every thread devolves into internecine squabbling about whether the posters are “real” sociopaths or just poseurs pretending. Because it’s a relatively anonymous board, they also have lots of problems with posters registering multiple accounts.One of the biggest divides in the forum comes between the people who are there to have intellectual discussions of sociopathy and its ramifications and teenage 4chan refugees with anime avatars who are there to make fun of them. The interesting thing about this conflict is that it’s hard to say which side is more sociopathic. Looking for authentic communication on the internet is “beta,” the term the community uses to describe non-sociopaths. So it’s possible that the weeaboo edgelords might be the true sociopaths because they’re willing to troll even a community set up for them.Real TimeIf the message board portion of Sociopath Community wasn’t rough enough for you, the site also has a chatroom embedded in every single goddamned page. This is where forumgoers put the thoughts that aren’t worthy of preserving forever, and it’s pretty mind-numbing to read through. After a few hours lurking, you realize that “sociopaths” spend most of their time either hitting on each other or cockblocking each other.Part of the definition of sociopathy is not caring about “belonging” to a group, and only playing along to see what personal advantages it can get you. It’s hard to see that happening here. The posters seem remarkably invested in each other, for better or for worse.Greatest HitsCombing through the morass of this site is enough to drive a normal person a little nuts, but here’s a slideshow of some particularly notable posts. So what do you think? Are these guys actual 4 percenter sociopaths, or just edgelords looking to justify their crappy online behavior while distracting from an actual mental health issue? Is it good that there’s a site that keeps them all in one place, or is Sociopath Community just amplifying their neuroses until one eventually goes Elliot Rodger? <>last_img read more

Star Wars News The Cast of The Last Jedi Hints at What

first_imgStar Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi is only a few short months away, which means it’s time for some real concrete details to come out. Today’s Last Jedi news comes from Entertainment Weekly, who just put up a massive cover story featuring interviews with the cast and director Rian Johnson. While they’re still understandably not revealing any specifics, they do give us a clearer picture of what the plot will look like. After the end of The Force Awakens, most of us were eager to see Luke begin training Rey. From the sounds of things, that might not happen right away.One interesting detail to come out of EW’s interviews was that Rey and Luke’s first meeting doesn’t go as well as she might have hoped. It turns out there’s a reason Luke exiled himself, and he isn’t going to get over it because somebody showed up on his island with a lightsaber. Rather than immediately taking on a new pupil, he will reject her and turn her away. Considering Rey’s abandonment as a child, that doesn’t sit well with her.Daisy Ridley describes Rey’s thought process during the early parts of the movie. “Oh my God, this other man that I lost within a couple days was somewhat of a father figure. Now he’s gone, and instead I’m with this grumpy guy on an island who doesn’t want me here.”So what happened to Luke? Why is he so grumpy? Mark Hamill says that while he and Johnson figured out all the details, those aren’t necessarily spelled out in the movie. Hamill said that while it was important for him as an actor to know exactly what Luke has been through, those details aren’t vital to the story of The Last Jedi. So what made Luke decide that it was time for the Jedi to end? As you might have guessed from what was revealed in The Force Awakens, it all comes down to Kylo Ren.“[Luke] made a huge mistake in thinking that his nephew was the chosen one, so he invested everything he had in Kylo, much like Obi-Wan did with my character. And he is betrayed, with tragic consequences.” Hamil says. It appears that Luke blamed himself for failing to detect the Dark Side within Ben Solo, and decided the galaxy would be better off without the Jedi. Rey may eventually train with Luke Skywalker, but it might take a decent chunk of the movie to get him there.EW also spoke with Oscar Isaac about Poe Dameron’s relationship with Princess Leia. After Carrie Fisher passed away last December, there have been questions about how the series would handle her absence. Disney has said that The Last Jedi wouldn’t be altered in any way, nor would Fisher be digitally inserted into Episode IX. Isaac and Johnson shed some light on how the films will move forward. After the events of The Force Awakens, Poe and Leia’s relationship grows a lot stronger.“Poe is in some ways a surrogate son for Leia, but also I think she sees in him the potential for a truly great leader of the Resistance and beyond,” Issac says. “I think Leia knows she won’t be around forever and she, with tough love, wants to push Poe to be more than the badass pilot, to temper his heroic impulses with wisdom and clarity.”With the destruction of the Republic’s capital in The Force Awakens, The Resistance will be at their most desperate in The Last Jedi. Cut off from leadership and resources; it’s going to be especially rough for Leia, who is now also dealing with the loss of her husband, as well as her son. Considering all that, it’s only natural that Leia would begin thinking of training Poe to carry on her efforts. From the sounds of things, that was the plan all along. While Episode IX is being rewritten out of respect for Fisher’s passing. Johnson says there were no changes made to The Last Jedi.Johnson says that while they didn’t intend to close Leia’s character arc, he hopes The Last Jedi will give Leia a satisfying ending. “There’s going to be a very emotional reaction to what she does in this movie,” he said.Donald Glover at The Martian premiere (Photo: NASA/Bill Ingalls)In other Star Wars news, Donald Glover spoke briefly about the upcoming Han Solo film in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. Specifically, he spoke about the change in directors the film went through. While he didn’t go too deep into what happened, it doesn’t sound like a particularly comfortable situation for the actors involved.“Ron is such a legend, and he knows exactly what the vision for what he is doing is … [but Phil and Chris] hired us, so you sort of feel like, ‘I know I’m not your first choice …’ And you worry about that,” he said. Glover described the feeling like the youngest kid whose parents are getting a divorce. “The oldest child is like, ‘We know what’s happening, but we are keeping you out of it.’ And I’m just like, [Glover’s voice rises several octaves] ‘Was that scene good? How did you feel?’”Whatever happened there, it doesn’t sound particularly fun for anyone involved. On the bright side, Ron Howard is a great director, and hopefully, he’s helping the cast move past any awkwardness. In a more fun detail about the upcoming Solo flick, Glover described a conversation he had with the original Lando Calrissian, Billy Dee Williams. Being the great actor he is, Glover shared all the preparation he’d done to play young Lando, including a full breakdown of the character. After listening to it all, he said, Williams had some very simple advice.“[Williams] just let me ramble on and on, and then finally I was like, ‘So, what do you think?’ And he goes, ‘Yeah, I don’t know about all that. Just be charming.’” Glover said.Hey, sometimes the best advice is just to keep things simple. Given Glover’s past performances (and his work as Childish Gambino) he should have no trouble just being charming.We’ll get to see the full force of Glover’s charm when the Han Solo flick hits theaters on May 25, 2016.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Mozilla starts to enable TLS 13 on Firefox Stable

first_imgMozilla starts to enable TLS 1.3 on Firefox Stable by Martin Brinkmann on April 13, 2018 in Firefox – Last Update: April 13, 2018 – 4 commentsEagle-eyed Firefox users and administrators may have noticed that Mozilla dropped a new system add-on on systems running the stable version of Firefox recently.First spotted by Bleeping Computer creator Lawrence Abrams, the add-on’s only purpose is to enable support for TLS 1.3, the next major Transport Layer Security protocol version.TLS 1.3 is considered to be faster and more secure than previous versions of the protocol. The new protocol version was finalized on March 21, 2018 and it needs to be supported by web browsers and Internet services.Firefox users who run beta or nightly versions of the web browser may know that TLS 1.3 is enabled in those versions already.Tip: you can manage TLS 1.3 manually in Firefox (and Chrome).TLS 1.3 on Firefox StableMozilla rolls out the system add-on gradually to the Firefox Stable release channel population. The organizations started with 10% of the population and monitored the effect closely.The current level of distribution reached 50% of the entire population.Check if TLS 1.3 is enabledWhile you can check for the existence of the system add-on on about:support as it is listed under Firefox Features on the page, you may also do the following to verify the maximum TLS version in Firefox:Type about:config in the browser’s address bar and load the internal address.Confirm that you will be careful if a warning message is displayed.Search for security.tls.versionThe preference security.tls.version.max determines the highest TLS protocol level that Firefox supports actively. If it is set to 3, TLS 1.2 is support. The system add-on raises the value to 4 which in turn adds support for TLS 1.3 to the web browser.Tip: you can raise the level manually right away if it is set to 3. Just double-click on the preference and change the value to 4 to add support for TLS 1.3 to Firefox right away.You can run a check for supported protocols and security features on SSLLabs. You should notice that TLS 1.3 is supported by the browser if the security.tls.version.max preference is set to 4.Google Chrome Stable supports TLS 1.3 by default as well already. Mozilla’s rollout will reach the entire Firefox Stable population eventually so that all versions of Firefox that are supported by the organization support the new protocol version.Interested users can follow the rollout on Bugzilla.SummaryArticle NameMozilla starts to enable TLS 1.3 on Firefox StableDescriptionEagle-eyed Firefox users and administrators may have noticed that Mozilla dropped a new system add-on on systems running the stable version of Firefox recently.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Technology Aims to Bring Us Longer Lives How Ethical is That

first_img(Credit: Lightspring/Shutterstock)Life extension – using science to slow or halt human aging so that people live far longer than they do naturally – may one day be possible.Big business is taking this possibility seriously. In 2013 Google founded a company called Calico to develop life extension methods, and Silicon Valley billionaires Jeff Bezos and Peter Thiel have invested in Unity Biotechnology, which has a market cap of US$700 million. Unity Biotechnology focuses mainly on preventing age-related diseases, but its research could lead to methods for slowing or preventing aging itself.From my perspective as a philosopher, this poses two ethical questions. First, is extended life good? Second, could extending life harm others?Is Living Forever A Good Thing?Not everyone is convinced that extending life would be good. In a 2013 survey by the Pew Research Center’s Religion and Public Life project, some respondents worried that it might become boring, or that they would miss out on the benefits of growing old, such as gaining wisdom and learning to accept death.Philosophers such as Bernard Williams have shared this concern. In 1973 Williams argued that immortality would become intolerably boring if one never changed. He also argued that, if people changed enough to avoid intolerable boredom, they would eventually change so much that they’d be entirely different people.On the other hand, not everyone is persuaded that extended life would be a bad life. I’m not. But that’s not the point. No one is proposing to force anyone to use life extension, and – out of respect for liberty – no one should be prevented from using it.Nineteenth-century philosopher John Stuart Mill argued that society must respect individual liberty when it comes to deciding what’s good for us. In other words, it’s wrong to interfere with someone’s life choices even when he or she makes bad choices.However, Mill also held that our liberty right is limited by the “harm principle.” The harm principle says that the right to individual liberty is limited by a duty not to harm others.There are many possible harms: Dictators might live far too long, society might become too conservative and risk-averse and pensions might have to be limited, to name a few. One that stands out to me is the injustice of unequal access.What does unequal access looks like when it comes to life extension?Available Only to the Rich?Many people, such as philosopher John Harris and those in the Pew Center survey, worry that life extension would be available only to the rich and make existing inequalities even worse.Indeed, it is unjust when some people live longer than the poor because they have better health care. It would be far more unjust if the rich could live several decades or centuries longer than anyone else and gain more time to consolidate their advantages.Some philosophers suggest that society should prevent inequality by banning life extension. This is equality by denial – if not everyone can get it, then no one gets it.As with other healthcare options, could longer lives be out of reach for the poor? (Credit: HelloRF Zcool/Shutterstock)However, as philosopher Richard J. Arneson notes, “leveling-down” – achieving equality by making some people worse off without making anyone better off – is unjust.Indeed, as I argue in my recent book on life extension ethics, most of us reject leveling-down in other situations. For example, there are not enough human organs for transplant, but no one thinks the answer is to ban organ transplants.Moreover, banning or slowing down the development of life extension may simply delay a time when the technology gets cheap enough for everyone to have it. TV sets were once a toy for the wealthy; now even poor families have them. In time, this could happen with life extension.Justice requires that society subsidize access to life extension to the extent it can afford to do so. However, justice does not require banning life extension just because it’s not possible to give it to everyone.Overpopulation Crisis?Another possible harm is that the world will become overcrowded. Many people, including philosophers Peter Singer and Walter Glannon, are concerned that extending human life would cause severe overpopulation, pollution and resource shortages.One way to prevent this harm, as some philosophers have proposed, is to limit the number of children after life extension.This would be politically very difficult and very hard on those who want longer lives, but trying to ban life extension would be equally difficult, and denying people longer lives would be just as hard on them – if not more so. Limiting reproduction, as hard as that may be, is a better way to follow the harm principle.Will Death Be Worse?Another possible harm is that widespread life extension might make death worse for some people.All else being equal, it is better to die at 90 than nine. At 90 you’re not missing out on many years, but at nine you lose most of your potential life. As philosopher Jeff McMahan argues, death is worse the more years it takes from you.Now imagine that people living in a far wealthier neighborhood don’t have to die at 90 or so. They can afford life extension, and will live to 190. You can’t afford it, and you are dying at 80. Is your death not so bad, for you’re losing only a few years, or is your death now far worse, because – if only you had life extension – you might live to 190? Are you losing 10 years, or are you losing 110 years?In a world where some people get life extension and some don’t, what’s the right measure for how many years death takes from you?Perhaps the right measure is how many years life extension would give you, multiplied by the odds of getting it. For example, if you have a 20 percent chance of getting 100 years, then your death is worse by however many years you’d get in a normal lifespan, plus 20 years.If so, then the fact that some people can get life extension makes your death somewhat worse. This is a more subtle kind of harm than living in an overpopulated world, but it’s a harm all the same.However, not just any harm is enough to outweigh liberty. After all, expensive new medical treatments can extend a normal lifespan, but even if that makes death slightly worse for those who can’t afford those treatments, no one thinks such treatments should be banned.I believe that life extension is a good thing, but it does pose threats to society that must be taken seriously.[This article originally appeared on The Conversation]last_img read more

Los Angeles drafted a tight end (South Alabama’s Gerald Everett) and two receivers (Eastern Washington’s Cooper Kupp and Texas A&M’s Josh Reynolds) with three of its first four picks. In the later rounds, the Rams added two outside linebackers, a fullback and a defensive tackle. With the exception of Reynolds, the picks came from schools not known as power conference football programs with two players out of Eastern Washington and selections who hail from Tulane, Boston College and Pittsburgh.Mel Kiper’s draft grade: C-Kiper says: “Overall, I think the Rams were smart to go after weapons for Goff (and McVay), I just questioned value in spots. Ironically, the most important aspect to both this draft and last year’s won’t be Goff or these wide receivers, it’ll be if the Rams can block well enough to unleash any of them.” San Francisco 49ersThe 49ers’ list of needs isn’t a short one. Regardless, it appeared that Lynch won the press conference after his first draft. Not only did he trade the second pick to move down a spot while acquiring two more selections in the first three rounds, he made the most out of his selections.Stanford defensive tackle Solomon Thomas was an easy choice third overall, and at 31, Lynch took a swing at Alabama linebacker Reuben Foster, who for myriad reasons fell down the draft boards after being regarded as a top-15 selection. Lynch addressed needs across the board by taking two cornerbacks, two defensive tackles, a defensive end, a linebacker, a tight end, a quarterback, a receiver and and a running back.Mel Kiper’s draft grade: A-Kiper says: “Overall, the 49ers did well to not just settle for picking good players and make a play for adding a second elite player. Reuben Foster carries some risk, but at No. 31? Bring it on. This is a good start to the Lynch era.” 5 (34)Trent TaylorLouisiana TechWR 3 (31)Delano HillMichiganS San Francisco 49ers draft picks Reuben Foster, left, and Solomon Thomas pose for photos at a news conference in Santa Clara, Calif., Friday, April 28, 2017.

Multiple casinos or Las Vegas in the Med

first_imgBy Stefanos EvripidouTHE GOVERNMENT is mulling over the creation of a one-off “global casino resort” in Cyprus, expected to attract millions in investment and tourism.The Presidential Palace is currently studying the updated study by private sector consultants on the opening of casinos in Cyprus which was completed and handed over to the Cyprus Tourism Organisation (CTO).According to sources, the options currently on the table are to allow the development of one massive “global resort” with a huge bed capacity that would offer a number of auxiliary services, including theme parks, restaurants, shops, malls, etc; or smaller multiple casinos across the island.The advantages of the first proposal are many, said the source, since no such global resort currently exists in Europe, meaning Cyprus will attract visitors from across Europe (including Russia) and the nearby region of the Middle East, targeting anyone within a four-hour flight from the island.The project goes beyond just opening a casino, as many other services would also be on offer, similar to those in Las Vegas, Singapore and Macau. Apart from gambling and hospitality services, a big resort would attract the kind of shows that would never normally come to Cyprus.The study reveals that the impact of a large-scale global resort on tourism would be massive, and likely result in a huge increase in arrivals, while getting the project off the ground is expected to bring in an investment of between €600-800 million.The government appears to be leaning towards this single licence global resort option, said one source.The size of the island and its surrounding areas only warrant the creation of one ‘mega’ casino resort, he said, noting that Singapore which caters to a potential market of hundreds of millions of people in neighbouring countries only has two casinos.Las Vegas has many large resorts but the desert city has all of America to attract to its gambling tables.The government does not rule out the possibility of offering a second licence to the same licensee for a smaller casino to serve the needs of another area of Cyprus.According to the expert study, the alternative proposal of providing multiple casino licences would not bring the same kind of massive investment to the island, nor would the country likely see a huge spike in tourism numbers.Politis yesterday reported that CTO officials and coalition partner DIKO were not keen on the proposal for one grand resort, preferring instead the multiple casinos option.According to a source, the CTO had no say in policy-making while DIKO had yet to give an official position on the matter.Since President Nicos Anastasiades broke from the policy of the previous government and announced the decision to allow the creation of casinos in Cyprus, local authorities throughout the island have been scrambling to promote their own attractiveness as a potential location for a casino, including the Famagusta municipalities and more recently the Nicosia mayor.Given the popularity of Anastasiades’ decision, the government can expect significant resistance to the proposal for one licence only, should the government finally decide on that.However, while the global resort will have a gambling licence, a number of auxiliary services will also be provided, giving local businesses the opportunity to participate in the entertainment and hospitality services on offer.Also, the government plans to ensure that all local authorities benefit in some way from the revenue collected from the gambling tax imposed on the licensee.As for the location of a one-off grand resort, the government would take the final decision after examining the proposal of a selection committee, though obviously, the investor would also have a big say.The government is expected to take a decision very soon on which model of casinos to adopt in Cyprus, based on the experts’ study.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementCardiologist: This Is What Happens When You Eat GlutenGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)UndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
