RCMP dogs get trained in central Alberta to detect human remains

first_imgINNISFAIL, Alta. – The first two RCMP canine teams to be taught to sniff out human remains have graduated from the force’s police dog training centre in central Alberta.What makes their training even more unusual is that real human remains were used.Mounties say they are the only Canadian police agency to do so.Typically, animal remains or medical waste are used.The human remains used for training at Innisfail, Alta., are provided by donors and their families through the Nova Scotia Medical Examiner Service.The force says the dogs’ added skill set will help collect evidence, make progress in historical investigations and provide closure to grieving families.“Using real human remains enables us to teach the dogs the exact odour they will be looking for. This way, they can rapidly differentiate between animal and human remains and locate human remains more effectively,” trainer Sgt. Robert Heppell said in a release Monday.The four dog teams participating in the initial training round were from British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba and Nova Scotia.The dogs from B.C. and Nova Scotia have completed their training, while the others from Alberta and Manitoba are expected to finish by the end of this week.There are 166 RCMP dog teams across Canada.last_img read more

Liberals name Catherine Tait as CBC president first woman to hold role

first_imgOTTAWA – Catherine Tait, a 30-year veteran of the Canadian and U.S. television and film industry, has been tapped to lead a digital revolution at CBC/Radio-Canada, becoming the first woman in the organization’s history to be named president and chief executive.Tait, who will officially begin her five-year term at the public broadcaster in the summer, called the position a dream job during a Tuesday morning news conference on Parliament Hill alongside Heritage Minister Melanie Joly.Tait said she wants the broadcaster to increasingly think digital in order to deal with the ongoing disruption across the broadcast industry — a symptom of evolving technology and consumption habits that allow consumers to access content anywhere and any time.The CBC needs to remain relevant to the many audiences it serves, she added, calling on the Crown corporation to be an inclusive storyteller for Indigenous Peoples, women, newcomers and LGBTQ communities, as well as a creator of quality local content.“CBC/Radio-Canada, along with public broadcasters around the world, are under significant competitive pressure,” Tait said.“In order for public broadcasters to survive and to flourish, we must flourish on the services, news and programming that most connect with our public — not just as one audience, but as many audiences. This is, after all, the power of digital.”Tait didn’t provide many additional details of the changes she hopes to see at the public broadcaster. She said she had some ideas about the direction she wanted the CBC to take, but first wanted to talk with outgoing president Hubert Lacroix and other executives.Tait, 60, is no stranger to the CBC. She is a former president of Salter Street Films that produced a CBC mainstay, “This Hour Has 22 Minutes,” and more recently saw a company she co-founded, iThentic, partner with the CBC to create a 10-part, online series.Her appointment was supported by industry groups like the Canadian Media Producers Association, who said Tait is “not afraid to innovate” and should keep the CBC “relevant and connected” to younger audiences. Daniel Bernhard, executive director of the advocacy group Friends of Canadian Broadcasting, said he was optimistic about Tait’s tenure, but needed to wait and see how she changes the CBC.The chairman of the committee that recommended Tait and others said she was the more audacious of the names that were put forward. Tom Clark, a former journalist, said Tait talked about some innovative and achievable ideas to implement at the public broadcaster and showed an understanding of the CBC and the challenges it faces.“She got not only who the CBC was and what it means to the country, but she also got the extent of the challenges — and challenges is a small word for a really big problem,” Clark said.“The reimagination of the national public broadcaster at a time when broadcasting is disappearing is a monumental task. She got both sides of the equation right.”Tait’s appointment is the latest in a series of moves the Liberal government has made at the public broadcaster that began in 2016, when it boosted funding to the CBC by $675 million over five years.The first tranche of money, about $75 million, moved last year. This year, the funding doubled to $150 million, a level that will continue through to April 2021. Joly said the CBC has been investing the money “bit by bit.”But the union at the CBC has raised concerns that the money, partly tied to boosting local content, has largely gone to outside production companies like the ones Tait led. The Canadian Media Guild (which also represents unionized workers at The Canadian Press) worries the new money from the federal government wasn’t a reinvestment in the CBC so much as spending on companies producing CBC programming.Jonathan Spence, the union’s branch president for CBC/Radio-Canada, said he hoped the new board and chief executive would rethink how the extra federal dollars were being spent.“Our concern is that if we continue to see increasing amounts of money going towards the independent production community, that may reflect a priority over local news and local programming,” he said.Pressed on the issue, Tait said that producing local content would be central in everything the CBC does.The board of directors is also receiving a makeover. On Tuesday, the Liberals announced the appointment of three new directors, and named Michael Goldbloom, an academic and former journalist, as chairman of the board.The government launched an overhaul last year of how members of the board of directors are chosen — a response to complaints that the selection process was open to political interference and did not reflect Canada’s diversity.“The CBC is at a turning point and we have the right management team, the right board to ultimately seize the opportunities that are out there,” Joly said.— Follow @jpress on TwitterNote to readers: This is a corrected story.

Women still face discrimination worldwide says UN rights chief

Almost every country in the world still has laws that discriminate against women, and promises to remedy this have not been kept, the top United Nations human rights official said today, speaking on the eve of International Women’s Day.“Many States appear to have simply ignored the commitments they have made,” UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Louise Arbour stated. “It is shameful that, in the 60th anniversary year of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, fundamental rights are still not enjoyed by many women around the world.“In some cases, they suffer from multiple forms of discrimination, such as race, age or disabilities as well as their gender. Unless states take their commitments seriously, investing in women and girls will remain a matter of rhetoric,” she added.This failure to create genuine legal parity between men and women is having “a detrimental effect on women in many countries – sometimes to a devastating degree,” according to a new report commissioned by the High Commissioner’s Office (OHCHR).One of the most dangerous examples of this involves the recognition of sexual abuse as a crime under a country’s laws and enforcing related legislation. “Rape is recognized as a crime in most legal systems,” said Ms. Arbour. “But, even when it is, inadequate legislation or local traditions often mean laws are not properly enforced.“In addition, at least 53 States still do not outlaw rape within marriage, and men frequently enjoy total impunity for physical as well as sexual violence against their wives,” she noted.The High Commissioner stressed that strengthening legal frameworks to protect women and to ensure their rights is crucial to combat violence against them. “What is clear, is that many States are failing to live up to their promises to review their laws and root out institutional discrimination, and millions of women continue to suffer grave injustices as a result.” Echoing the High Commissioner’s call, three independent UN human rights experts today urged States to invest in women and girls to ensure gender equality and prevent violence against women.The theme of this year’s International Women’s Day, “Investing in Women and Girls,” is a timely reminder that women’s access to sources of finance, their participation in decision-making processes and opportunities for sustainable livelihoods are vital to “bridging the gap between universal human rights standards and the realities of the majority of the world’s women,” they said.The group called on States, donors and the private sector to step up efforts to “respect, protect and fulfil women’s civil, cultural, economic, political and social rights, and allocate adequate resources towards addressing discrimination and violence against women.”The joint statement was issued today by the Special Rapporteur on Violence against Women, its Causes and Consequences, Yakin Ertürk; the Special Rapporteur on adequate housing, Miloon Kothari; and the Independent Expert on the effects of economic reform policies and foreign debt on the full enjoyment of human rights, particularly economic, social and cultural rights, Bernards A. N. Mudho. A new report released by the International Labour Organization (ILO) on the occasion of International Women’s Day finds that while more women are working than ever before – 1.2 billion in 2007 – they are also more likely than men to get low-paid jobs without any social protection and basic rights. “Global Employment Trends for Women 2008” points out that access to labour markets and to decent jobs is crucial to enhancing gender equality, and most regions have a long way to go in realizing the untapped potential women offer for economic development. “The workplace and the world of work are at the centre of global solutions to address gender equality and the advancement of women in society,” said ILO Director-General Juan Somavia. “By promoting decent work for women, we are empowering societies and advancing the cause of economic and social development for all.” Meanwhile, the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) marked the Day by calling for better access to maternal health care, which will reduce the estimated half a million pregnancy-related deaths that occur each year, as well as help decrease child mortality rates. It is estimated that one in four pregnant women currently receives no antenatal care, and that more than 40 per cent give birth without the assistance of a skilled attendant. 7 March 2008Almost every country in the world still has laws that discriminate against women, and promises to remedy this have not been kept, the top United Nations human rights official said today, speaking on the eve of International Women’s Day. read more

Tressel stirs together perfect bowl game mix

With a dash of Tresselball and a pinch of risky business, the Buckeyes finally found their recipe for bowl game success. All it took was a strong defense that has been around all season and a timely fourth-and-one conversion for the Buckeyes to step out ahead of the Oregon Ducks 26-17 in the 2010 Rose Bowl.Ohio State owns third downThe Buckeye defense held the Ducks to only two third down conversions in 11 attempts. They allowed Oregon just 12 first downs throughout the game. Junior Cameron Heyward said that all it took for the OSU defense to hold up Oregon was “Discipline. They are a great, high-powered offense but we knew we could hang with them,” he said.On the other side of the ball, quarterback Terrelle Pryor and the Buckeye offense dominated on third down conversions. They were successful for 11 of 21 attempts, and totaled 26 first downs, more than double that of Oregon. “It was pretty tough because every time we’d get late in the game, they’d get a third down [conversion]. It was frustrating,” said Kenny Rowe, Oregon linebacker and Defensive MVP of the Rose Bowl. “We’ve just got to get them off the field on third downs.”Ohio State ran 89 plays throughout the course of the game, the third-most in Rose Bowl Game history. Oregon ran 53 plays, the eighth-fewest number of plays in Rose Bowl Game history. The difference, 36 plays, is the second-most in the history of the game.Time of possession weighs on Ohio State’s sideAll year long, the Ohio State defense has spent most of the time on the field. “The offense did a great job to help out the defense. [The defense] has been carrying a lot this year,” Pryor said. “We’re just glad that we got out there and tried to help them out as much as we could.”And help they did, by holding the ball for more than 41 minutes, while asking the defense to cover quarterback Jeremiah Masoli and his squad for only 18 minutes, allowing them to rest in between bouts with the quick and up-tempo Oregon offense.When asked how they were able to stand up to that offense, coach Jim Tressel simply said, “We have an up-tempo defense.”Buckeyes slow down Oregon’s playmakersAll talk leading up to Friday’s game centered around the speed and unpredictable nature of Masoli and Oregon’s running backs. However, the Buckeyes were able to limit Masoli to only six carries for nine total yards, his lowest total all season.“I thought our [defensive] guys prepared extremely well,” Tressel said. “And we were going to make sure that [Masoli] wasn’t running scot-free.”Redshirt freshman LaMichael James led the Ducks in rushing with 70 yards on 15 carries, but fell far short of his average of 123 yards per game. Similarly, LeGarrette Blount, the highly touted back who was suspended for most of the season, was held to 36 yards on five attempts.Blount also fumbled at the 18-yard line late in the third quarter, which ended Oregon’s last drive deep into the red zone.Buckeyes succeed on fourth down attemptWith two minutes left on the clock in the first half, Ohio State was stuck on fourth-down with one yard to go and the score tied 10-10. Knowing that Oregon would receive the ball to start the second half, Tressel knew he had to try and score before halftime, he said. “[Oregon coach] Chip [Kelly] was calling timeouts before the half while we had the ball because he wanted it with a minute to go to try to get points for them,” Tressel said. “It was that kind of game that you knew every possession, every opportunity was going to be key.”The Buckeyes took the opportunity to convert on fourth-and-one and Brandon Saine succeeded in pushing the ball four yards to the Oregon 10-yard line to set up OSU for a field goal to give OSU the lead heading into the half. read more

Two killed in India bullwrestling festival

first_imgTwo people were gored to death Sunday in a bull-wrestling festival in southern India, a report said, a day after a ban on the controversial sport was overturned.Several towns and villages in the southern state of Tamil Nadu celebrated the popular Jallikattu festival on Sunday after week-long protests prompted authorities to approve an executive order lifting a Supreme Court ban on it.But rampaging bulls sprinting through the village of Rapoosal in Pudukottai district fatally gored the two victims and injured 28 others, the Press Trust of India (PTI) cited local police as saying.The Supreme Court last year outlawed Jallikattu after a plea by animal rights groups, which have long accused those taking part in the event-held annually across Tamil Nadu-of cruelty to the animals.The state’s residents say Jallikattu is a crucial part of their culture and identity.Growing tensions over the past week in the state capital Chennai and other cities led Prime Minister Narendra Modi Friday to issue an executive order that this year’s event go ahead.But thousands have continued to protest and refused to celebrate the festival, saying they want a permanent lifting of the court ban and not just a temporary order.Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam assured Tamils that the executive order would be made into a law during his state’s next session of parliament starting Monday, according to PTI.Panneerselvam was scheduled to launch the Jallikattu festival in the town of Alanganallur in Madurai district, where the sport is most popular. But he was forced to cancel his appearance due to strong protests.In Jallikattu, young men struggle to grab the bulls by their sharpened horns or jump on their backs as the beasts, festooned with marigolds, charge down the road.Unlike in Spanish bullfighting, young men compete to subdue them bare-handed.But critics say organisers lace the bulls’ feed with liquor to make them less steady on their feet and throw chilli powder in their faces to send them into a sudden frenzy as they are released from a holding pen.Organisers of the centuries-old festival insist the beasts suffer no harm and call the event an established part of Tamil culture.last_img read more

Would You Work Out Harder If You Got Paid in Bitcoin

Listen Nowcenter_img 4 min read Updated March 17 at 1 p.m. ETBreaking a sweat pays physical dividends. Working out on the regular chisels your body, cranks up your immune system and staves off the grim reaper. But what if it paid financial dividends, too? What if you could literally get paid for getting ripped? Would you work out harder?Sweat equity is taking on new meaning with FitCoin, a new palm-greasing iOS fitness app that Austin, Texas-based Chaotic Moon Studios is pumping up at SXSW this week.Related: To Stand Out at SXSW, Give Them Something to Tweet AboutThe clever app, not to be confused with a little-known cryptocurrency and a host of other apps bearing the same name, motivates users to train harder in exchange for bitcoins. It’s beautifully basic: The more they work out, the more digital cash they stash.”This concept combines two of our specialties: looking good and making money,” said Ben Lamm, Chaotic Moon co-founder and CEO. “We’re always trying to turn existing habits into new opportunities to make money — this one was an obvious fit.”On top of leveraging Bitcoin’s blockchain public ledger backbone, FitCoin also latches on to another hot new technology: Wearables. Specifically fitness trackers that measure your heart rate and offer open API software, reports Yahoo Tech. So far, the only trackers to meet both criteria are the Jawbone UP3, Mio Fuse and Austin-based newcomer Atlas.Related: SXSW: Talking Vegetables, Selfie Pods and More Insane Products From SXSW’s Tradeshow FloorAfter being paired with a tracker, FitCoin logs your workout intensity, duration and distance. From there, the app’s proprietary algorithm determines how much bitcoin you’ve earned during each workout session. The sleek black and white animated app also delivers real-time notifications and earnings updates, also displayed on a dashboard, so users can easily track “how both their body and their bank account are progressing.”But don’t expect to get rich quick, even if FitCoin’s tagline is “Get fit, get rich, or die mining.” Only “slivers” of bitcoins are mined when you exercise.Also, you’re out of luck if you hope to find FitCoin in the Apple App Store today. It’s still in early alpha release, yet “has already gained traction with enthusiastic users,” according to its creators. They envision FitCoin as a health incentive tool for everyone, not just “cypherpunks and fitness freaks.”Related: ‘Days Felt Like Years’: What Morgan Spurlock Found When He Tried to Survive on Bitcoin for a WeekFitCoin’s creators say the project is a working proof of concept, therefore its cost and plans for monetization are still up in the air. “Whether it’ll be app or fee-based remains to be determined.”FitCoin is the real-deal, not just another headline-snatching stunt care of the bold creatives at Chaotic Moon. The startup has earned a reputation for testing SXSW organizers’ patience more than once. Last year, the company shocked festival goers when it zapped an intern with 80,000 volts of electricity using a taser-equipped drone. Luckily, the intern wasn’t hurt, perhaps apart from a bruised ego.This year, Chaotic Moon’s plans to pilot its newest and wackiest drone, Tyrone — which it says “can tag a wall with spray paint, accost onlookers with silly string or deter attackers with a three-foot flame” — were foiled by the festival’s new “strict no drones policy.”Related: SXSW Declared a Drone-Free Zonelast_img read more

UNWTO Global Conference to promote Jamaica Tourism

first_imgThe upcoming United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) Global Conference may serve as an ideal platform to showcase Jamaica as an ideal tourism destination. It will also be an ideal opportunity to showcase the country’s sustainable tourism development agenda and demonstrate how tourism contributes to the economic well-being of every Jamaican.Edmund Bartlett, Minister of Tourism, Jamaica told that the conference to be hosted by both the Government of Jamaica and the World Bank Group, on November 27 to 29 at the Convention Centre in Rose Hall, St. James will be the “most significant global conference ever to be held in the Americas.”“The conference will focus on jobs and growth in the region. It will also see leaders of the cruise industry sitting at the same table with their land-based counterparts, discussing critical matters related to tourism,” he pointed out.Citing it as a grand event, Bartlett informed that about 800 tourism delegates will gather under one roof comprising representatives from the World Bank, the Inter-American Development Bank, the Caribbean Development Bank, the Organization of American States and a number of key regional organisations such as the Caribbean Tourism Organization and the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association.“There has never been a gathering of this nature of key leaders in tourism who will be looking at best practices and how we can bring ideas and resources together. We want to look at how we can map out a blueprint of the future development of tourism, not just in the Caribbean but worldwide,” he added.last_img read more

New TRID Rule Will Increase Risk of Losses for RMBS

first_img Moody’s Investors Service Residential Mortgage-Backed Security TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure 2015-05-21 Staff Writer in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, Government, News, Origination, Servicing May 21, 2015 500 Views Moody’s Investors Service released a report called, “New TILA-RESPA Rule Will Heighten Possibility of Losses in US RMBS for Rule Violations” revealing that initial challenges for lenders to implement and comply with the new TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure (TRID) rule, along with the potential high costs of lenders who do not comply, raise the risk of losses for residential mortgage-backed security (RMBS) trusts.The TRID rule is set to go into effect August 1, 2015 and will dramatically affect the compliance side of the real estate market. The new rule will replace the current disclosure requirements of the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) and the Real Estate Settlement and Practices Act (RESPA) and will also broaden the amount of inaccurate information that secondary market purchasers, like RMBS trust, will be held accountable for.As of now, RMBS trusts are only liable for finance charge errors from lenders, the APR, and certain other disclosures required by the TILA, but they are not liable for errors on itemized settlement charges and other disclosures required by the Real Estate Settlement and Practices Act (RESPA), the report says. TILA and RESPA currently require that lender provide an initial and final disclosure to consumers, and an assignee’s liability for errors depend on which law required the disclosure. TILA requires assignees to be liable for violations that are visible on the face of the disclosure statements, but RESPA does not.”The huge operational challenge for the industry to implement and comply with TRID will likely cause a spike in compliance errors,” said Yehudah Forster, a Moody’s VP and senior credit officer and author of the report. “Just how much RMBS trusts will be liable for the errors of lenders will depend largely on the interpretation of the courts,” Forster said.Loans that violate the new TRID rules with uncured errors will have an increased chance of legal costs and damages if they default, the result of the expanded set of errors for which RMBS trusts could be held liable for, according to Moody’s report. After the rule goes into effect, companies will endure operational challenges in implementing TRID and will cause compliance errors to rise for at least the first few months.  Moody’s believes that as long as issuers perform due diligence on all loans, as they normally do in post-crisis private label RMBS transactions, securitizations will not likely have loans with uncured compliance errors because issuers will remove these loans from the RMBS pools prior to closing.”The risk of higher losses will be slight for issuers that adhere to these more stringent procedures put in place in the wake of the financial crisis,” Forster said.To access the full report: Moodys.comcenter_img Share New TRID Rule Will Increase Risk of Losses for RMBSlast_img read more

first_img by Victoria Ahearn, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 20, 2019 12:23 pm PDT Jay Baruchel has trained the dragon, now he’s letting go with ‘The Hidden World’ AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Jay Baruchel, left, and Dean DeBlois pose for a photo in a Toronto hotel as they promote the film “How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, ” on Friday, February 15, 2019. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Chris Young TORONTO — The first time actor Jay Baruchel stepped into a recording booth to voice a young Viking named Hiccup for “How to Train Your Dragon,” it was summer 2007 and his career was skyrocketing.“Knocked Up” had hit theatres around that time, with Baruchel playing one of the slacker friends to Seth Rogen’s character, and the now-engaged Montreal-raised comedy star was in a different phase of his life — just hitting his stride on the big screen, not yet the writer-director-author he is now.“Nowhere close to the virile alpha male sat before you,” Baruchel, 36, said jokingly in a recent interview in Toronto, where he now lives.Hiccup, too, was much different — still a teen, still learning to train fire-breathing creatures.Two dragon sequels and franchise TV series later, both Baruchel and Hiccup are now at the end of their coming-of-age journey together, with Friday’s release of “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World.”The final instalment in the Oscar-nominated animated film trilogy finds Hiccup as a young adult, contemplating his future and finding a new home for his dragon, Toothless, and the rest of the pack, which includes new female friend.“It’s inherently kind of melancholy,” Baruchel said of the conclusion to a huge chapter of his life. “I haven’t quite processed it, to be honest. I know that I’m proud of being part of it, I’m proud of what we’ve done, and I’m especially proud of this movie. But it’s definitely a little sad.”Yet he and Canadian writer-director Dean DeBlois, who also did the first two films, weren’t sentimental about wrapping it up. It must be the Canuck in them, they joked.“There was absolutely zero fanfare on our last session,” Baruchel said with a laugh, sitting beside DeBlois, who hails from Aylmer, Que.“I don’t know if either of us had clocked that it wasn’t the last session, and even if we had, neither of us wants to make a big fuss. So we finished and I was like, ‘Oh, it that it? Yeah, I think that’s it. Holy smokes. Twelve years, eh? Yeah, that’s crazy.’“Everyone has asked me, ‘So what was the last session like? Were you crying?’ I was like, ‘No, for God’s sakes. We didn’t wear Hawaiian shirts to work or something.’ It was very ‘Just the facts, ma’am.’”The two are matter-of-fact about the saga ending because they’ve always known how it would wrap up, they said.The trilogy is loosely based on the book series by Cressida Cowell and DeBlois said his goal has always been to make the ending reflect on the opening words of the first volume: “There were dragons when I was a boy.”“It suggests they’re gone, it suggests he’s much older and there was some kind of transformation from this kid to this old man reflecting back on his youth,” said DeBlois, who got Oscar nominations for best animated feature for the first two dragon films.“How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World” includes many of the same voice cast from the previous films, except for T.J. Miller, who was replaced by Justin Rupple as twin Tuffnut.DeBlois, who co-directed the first dragon film with Chris Sanders, said the look of the Hidden World was inspired by a dream he had of a volcano under a body of water much like Niagara Falls.“The Hidden World is Buffalo,” Baruchel jested.The story touches on themes including accepting change, personal transformation and the extinction of creatures on Earth.It’s an emotional farewell that might have audiences tearing up, which was DeBlois’ intention.“That’s a measure of success for me, this time around,” he said with a laugh. “Like, I actually had it as a goal: ‘I really want to make the audience cry.’“I was determined to be as truthful to that kind of story motif as possible, the one where you have a bittersweet parting of friends — because I think it’s true to life and it applies to young and old and really amplifies the theme of the movie, which is learning to let go.”Victoria Ahearn, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

first_imgLabour unions representing public sector employees warned on Monday they will never agree to their members paying in twice to the national health scheme (Gesy) and demanded a meeting with the finance minister to air their grievances.Civil servants are up in arms because, under Gesy, they will have to contribute 1.7 per cent of their gross earnings in addition to the 1.5 per cent that is already docked from their wages for medical treatment.“To us, it is unacceptable that current and retired civil servants should be burdened with both contributions,” said Glafcos Hadjipetrou, head of the main union Pasydy.“But because we do not wish this to be perceived as a move against Gesy, we shall first seek a meeting with the [finance] minister in a bid to make it understood that what is happening is both unacceptable and unfair,” he added.“In our view, at least the 1.5 per cent contribution should be scrapped.”It’s understood that the 1.7 per cent additional payment will kick in on March 1.Opposed to the double contribution are the unions representing workers in public education, the police and the armed forces.They have already launched legal challenges with the supreme court against the 1.5 per cent contribution, which is based on Regulation 3A, pursuant to the Medical Foundations and Services (fees and control) Act of 1978 and as amended in 2000.The unions claim that law is unconstitutional and are looking to have it repealed.Earlier, Pasydy had intimated they would consider “reaction measures” unless the government hears them out.Chiming in, the ‘Equality’ labour union likewise hinted at possible industrial action.“We shall not tolerate this mocking affront, nor any further victimisation of people working in the public sector, and shall take dynamic steps, possibly in collaboration with other trade unions,” it said in a statement.Established in December 2017, ‘Equality’ represents people employed in the central government and the broader public sector, including full-time, part-time and temporary workers.The unions’ stance adds to the government’s growing pains in implementing the national health scheme this year, after the Cyprus Medical Association (CyMA) last week urged its members not to join Gesy.CyMA represents some 40 societies of physicians and medical scientists.Also not participating in Gesy are the association of private hospitals, the oral and maxillofacial society, the association of private doctors, the vascular and endovascular surgery association, rheumatologists, intensivists, urologists, nuclear medicine physicians, ear, nose and throat (ENT) doctors, endocrinologists, paediatricians and gastroenterologists.

hes known for flipping samples" Theres truth to that Ive had a good amount of success remaking samples but I dont go into it saying "Im going to be the sample guy" I dont go out of my way trying to interject a JR sound Thats going to happen naturally without me trying You produced one song that I thought was going to be everywhereWho Is Fancys "Boys Like You" featuring Meghan Trainor and Ariana Grande What happened to that song I was so happy to be a part of the song and getting both Ariana and Meghan as features made it even bigger Once I do a song as a producer theres no telling where it will go I lose control at that point Thats how it works in the music industry It may end up blowing up overnight It may take several months or a year to get big I myself have been wondering whats up with that song and I dont really have an answer other than I had high hopes for it There are so many factors It has to do with the relationship between the artist and the label Pop radio only plays a certain number of songs so if pop radio is concentrating on Meghan Trainors first single they might feel its a conflict to have another song where Meghan is featured because thats too many slots of Meghan You know how it is: sometimes when you listen to pop radio it feels like youre hearing the same six seven songs over and over again Im not sure thats the reasonIm just speculating But I was really proud to be a part of that song I love the honest message that Fancy was delivering Its kind of pushing boundaries definitely edgy I love being a part of things like that Is there anybody youre working with right now that youre really excited about When I sign artists I don’t like to sign five or 10 and dilute my attention and see which ones pan out I have to be selective I’ve had some successes with artists like Jason Derulo and then there have been other times when I spent a long time on an artist that maybe wasn’t worth the time I was holding out and waiting until I found someone

worked with Im as inspired as ever One last thing: are you doing anything to celebrate the 10th anniversary of your work on Kevin Federlines Playing With Fire [Laughs] Uh no I havent planned anything yet Its been a decade A decade Thats amazing Man time really flies Write to Nolan Feeney at nolanfeeney@timecomIt all started with a couple of pairs of earphones In 1995 in Beijing Wang Hai spent $20 on what were billed as state-of-the-art Sony headphones The amalgams of plastic and wire were as often happens in a country infamous for fake or questionable products not quite functional and not quite Sony But China had enacted a consumer-protection law the year before that gave a bit of muscle to the nations beleaguered shoppers So Wang who studied law in college bought 10 more faulty earphones and took his case to the Beijing Municipal Administration of Industry and Commerce He was hailed as the first person to test Chinas consumer-rights legislationand he won receiving double the price of his losses from the shop Successful legal efforts against purveyors of pirated shoes and clothes followed "No one understood what I was doing" he recalls "They said How can you make money from other peoples fraud I said I am standing up for the consumer" Since that landmark civil action nearly two decades ago Wang now 40 has forged a business empire fighting for consumer rights One company investigates corporate malfeasance Another of his firms focuses on the rights of property owners: in China the real estate market is so frenzied that many apartments are sold even before the ground is broken and unscrupulous developers often promise more than they deliver Yet another venture tracks brand pirates Besides helping individual consumers Wang also consults for the Chinese government and tracks counterfeits for multinationals Wang gives lectures on consumer rights at universities and runs a free consumer-complaints hotline He has hosted TV shows His targets have included large state-owned telecom companies which he successfully urged to release more-detailed phone bills In a nominally communist nation where the contest of capitalism runs largely unchecked by state oversight Wangs is a vital voice "Chinas biggest challenge is that it has to evolve from giving profits to those who cheat and run overprotected monopolies to rewarding those who innovate" he says "How can China continue to grow and be competitive if it doesnt value quality" China may have lawsafter all its civilization boasts one of the deepest repositories of legal knowledge in the world But rule of law is often elusive and corruption rife Consumer rights is one of the few areas in which individuals can triumph and use the law to their advantage Still Wangs shock tactics can land him in trouble When he first started out his legal campaigns pursued small-time operators But Wang now exposes bigger fish often linked to the state After Wang accused a major detergent company of using unsafe ingredients the propaganda office of the city district where the firm is based publicly attacked him in official media In 2013 Chinas consumer-protection law was enhanced for the first time since 1994 Now compensation for a faulty product has been raised to a maximum of three times the loss as opposed to two To Wang thats not enough "The consumer-rights law in China still values the company over the customer" he says noting that China doesnt have an independent consumer-rights association Local media are complicit too taking payoffs in return for favorable write-ups of certain brands A string of safety scandalspoisoned milk powder fake drugs even watermelons that explode from an overdose of growth hormoneshas made the Chinese preference for imported products more than just a matter of taste Among Wangs favorite targets are Chinese companies that could pass as foreign brands by using seemingly Western names Take the case of the curiously named Jissbon one of the most popular condom companies in China (Its Chinese rendering uses the same characters as James Bonds name in Mandarin) Wang knew that many Chinese thought the condom manufacturer was a trusted British brand even though friends in Britain couldnt find Jissbon condoms there Wang discovered that Jissbons first trademark was Chinese not British Most of the companys directors were based in Wuhan a central Chinese city (Ironically Jissbon eventually did become a foreign brand when Australian condommaker Ansell acquired it) Wangs crusading doesnt exclude non-Chinese companies In 2012 he publicly chastised Nike for having released a line of basketball shoes in China that had one air cushion while similar sneakers produced for other markets had twoand were less expensive Nike said there was a mix-up in its publicity materials and offered refunds Yet Wang famously wears American Ray-Bans as part of his swashbuckling consumer-superhero getup His clothes come from Japans Uniqlo and Timberland the American retailer "I love my country" says Wang "but if I can help it I will not buy Chinese products You cant trust most of them" Thats a preference millions upon millions of his countrymen share This trust deficit may have profound consequences "You wont find a visionary company like Apple in China until companies here consider the customer invaluable" Wang says iPhone in hand "The fate of Chinas economy depends on how it treats its consumers" With reporting by Gu Yongqiang / Beijing Contact us at editors@timecom where the processing of asylum seekers would be transferred to other
