New Case in Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes ProgramNew Case in Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program


first_imgThe province is looking for the public’s help with an unsolved case involving a missing person last seen nine years ago. The province is offering a cash reward of up to $150,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of individuals responsible in the case of Charles Robert Maddison of Portapique, Colchester Co., missing person. “We are urging anyone with information about the disappearance of Mr. Maddison to come forward,” said Attorney General and Justice Minister Ross Landry. “There is no piece of information too trivial.” A friend of Mr. Maddison was the last person to speak to him, before 7 a.m. on Sept. 8, 2000. Mr. Maddison, who had several doctor appointments in Halifax later that morning, left his Portapique residence at about 7 a.m. Several acquaintances reported seeing Mr. Maddison driving his 1989 blue Dodge Dakota truck in the Portapique and Great Village areas. Later that morning, the truck was seen driving along Highway 102 near Truro. Mr. Maddison has not been seen or heard from since. On Sept. 9, 2000, Mr. Maddison’s abandoned truck was located in a clearing near Rhines Road in East Hants. Mr. Maddison was 55 years old when he disappeared. An extensive investigation followed Mr. Maddison’s disappearance but no criminal charges were laid. While the case remains unsolved, the investigation is ongoing. Investigators suspect foul play. Anyone with information can call 1-888-710-9090. More information on this, and other cases, can be found on the Department of Justice website at www.gov.ns.ca/just. The Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program was launched in October 2006 as another tool for law enforcement to use in solving crime. There are now 58 cases in the program.last_img read more


Pankaj Advani enters final of IBSF World Billiards CshipPankaj Advani enters final of IBSF World Billiards Cship


first_imgMandalay (Myanmar): India’s top cueist Pankaj Advani defeated England’s Mike Russell 5-2 to enter the final of the IBSF World Billiards Championship here on Saturday. In a clash of the titans, the defending champion Indian prevailed over the multiple time world champion Briton in the semifinal match. Russell had lost at the same stage last year to settle for a bronze. Advani, who is vying for his 22nd world title, will face local player Nay Thway Oo in the summit clash in a repeat of last year’s tournament. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over ChandigarhThway Oo had beaten Russell in the semifinals last year before losing to Advani in the final. In Saturday’s semifinal against Russell, Advani scored three back-to-back centuries but managed to convert only two of those frames as the Briton took advantage of the Indian’s error on 142 and made a 150. The match was evenly poised at two frames a piece and could have gone either way. But Advani appeared to be on a mission as he made breaks of 63 and 123 in the last three frames to race to a 5-2 victory. “I’m really pleased to enter the final again a year later. Mike played well so I knew I had to bring more firepower to the match to give myself a chance to defend my title. This feels like deja vu playing Oo again, that too in the final and in Myanmar two years in a row. Let’s hope the outcome is the same too,” Advani said.last_img read more


Sammy Hagar To Be Honored By Adopt The ArtsSammy Hagar To Be Honored By Adopt The Arts


first_imgOn Wednesday, January 31, 2018, Adopt The Arts (adoptthearts.org), the Los Angeles-based charity that preserves and creates arts programs in U.S. public schools, will honor rock icon Sammy Hagar (Van Halen, Chickenfoot) for his humanitarian work at their annual Rock Gala at the historic Avalon Ballroom in Hollywood.EMMY award winning actor Jane Lynch will host the epic night featuring once in a lifetime musical performances and a live auction with priceless experience packages that will help fund music programs in LAUSD elementary schools.Adopt The Arts Co-Founder, Grammy winner Matt Sorum (Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver), will take the stage to salute Sammy Hagar with an all-star lineup of some of the biggest names in Rock N Roll including STEVE STEVENS, (Billy Idol), MICHAEL ANTHONY (Van Halen, The Circle), FRANKY PEREZ (Apocalyptica), DUFFY (The Cult), STEVE LUKATHER (Toto), KENNY ARONOFF (John Mellencamp), PHIL X (Bon Jovi), STEVE SALAS (Rod Stewart), and ROBERT DELEO and DEAN DELEO (Stone Temple Pilots).Tickets to the event are now on sale with prices ranging from $100-$500 each. For more information and to purchase tickets click here.ADOPT THE ARTS – a 501c3 non-profit funding arts programs in public elementary schools – was founded by musician Matt Sorum (Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver) and activist Abby Berman and works to preserve arts programs in U.S. public schools. To raise awareness, ADOPT THE ARTS honors individuals who’ve had a long-lasting impact on music culture and who inspire young musicians to follow in their footsteps. Actress JANE LYNCH was the first celebrity to lend her support to ADOPT THE ARTS and is on the Board of Directors; the advisory board also includes: Slash, John Stamos, Billy Bob Thornton and more.According to Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), 50% of elementary school children in the district are not receiving arts education of any kind. As in many school districts around the country, LAUSD has been slowly eroding its commitment to arts education, reducing the budget incrementally. The LAUSD district also estimates that 80% of its student body is living at or below the poverty line, which means the vast majority of these elementary school children will not have access to the arts outside of school.“Adopt the Arts was born out of the frustration for my own children losing education in the arts,” explains ADOPT THE ARTS Co-Founder Abby Berman. “When the system is failing, we have to take action. With influential people like my Co-Founder Matt Sorum adopting schools, we can preserve this valuable component to childhood development, which is also known to boost test scores. Because Federal and State funding is falling short, the responsibility is upon us as concerned parents and citizens to ensure we’re raising a new generation of healthy and well-rounded individuals.”ADOPT THE ARTS Co-Executive Director and Co-Founder Matt Sorum adds, “We’re starting in our own backyard here in Los Angeles, and we’ll continue to adopt schools across the nation. We believe that art is a universal and necessary language that unites us all, regardless of our backgrounds.”last_img read more

Cambodia could become terror source warns Security Council panel chairmanCambodia could become terror source warns Security Council panel chairman


Briefing the press on his recent mission to the Philippines, Cambodia, Thailand and Australia, Ambassador Heraldo Muñoz of Chile noted that Cambodia’s Muslim community in the south have suffered discrimination, while there have been reports of violence in that part of the country. “Let us remember that Hambali, the leader of Jemaah Islamiyah, spent some time in Cambodia,” he said, referring to a group listed as belonging to or associated with Al-Qaida. “He was not vacationing there, clearly.” As to the overall purpose of the trip, Mr. Muñoz said the visits aimed to verify conditions on the ground and to discuss with governments any problems regarding implementation of the sanctions as well as ways to improve the sanctions regime in the future. He also noted that the countries vary widely in terms of compliance with the sanctions based on their ability to do so and the degree of their political willingness to confront the threat of Al-Qaida. The Committee was established in 1999 through resolution 1267 and is charged with reviewing implementation of the sanctions regime against Al-Qaida, the Taliban and associated individuals and entities. The measures, later tightened through subsequent Council resolutions, call for countries to freeze financial resources – including funds derived or generated by any undertaking owned or controlled by the Taliban – and to ensure that they are not used by the group. States are also obliged to freeze funds and other financial assets of Usama bin Laden and his associates in the Al-Qaida organization, and to prevent their entry or transit through the State’s territory. In addition, nations must prevent the supply, sale and transfer of all arms and materiel – along with any form of military training – to the named individuals and entities. read more

Vandy steps up its defence in win over Middle TennesseeVandy steps up its defence in win over Middle Tennessee


NASHVILLE — Bryce Drew didn’t like Vanderbilt’s defensive effort four days ago.But the Commodores coach was much happier after his team’s 79-51 win over Middle Tennessee. The Blue Raiders hit only 36 per cent from the floor.“Our players worked really hard on defence the last couple of days,” Drew said. “We wanted to come out and defend much better. I thought it was our best effort and execution on the defensive end.”The Commodores (6-2), who lost point guard Darius Garland to a season-ending knee injury on November 23, rebounded from Saturday’s loss to North Carolina State.Middle Tennessee (3-6) missed 12 of 14 3-pointers and never got closer than 19 in the second half.Vanderbilt’s Simi Shittu scored 15 points and Matthew Moyer, a Syracuse transfer, added a season-high 14.“I just got cleared two weeks ago, so all I’ve got to do is stay positive and stay the course and help the young guys out,” Moyer said. “It was a tough loss (to NC State) because of the effort. We knew we needed to come out with effort and energy.”Vanderbilt ended a three-game losing streak to Middle Tennessee, increasing its lead to 30-7 in the series.“Vandy took advantage of its open opportunities,” MTSU coach Nick McDevitt said. “Knocked down open shots. Just shot the ball very well.”Antonio Green, who scored a career-high 30 points in Saturday’s loss to Lipscomb, led the Blue Raiders with 18 points as Middle Tennessee lost its fifth straight game after starting the season 3-1.“We feel like we’re getting better, but it’s depressing losing,” said Green, who is three points shy of 1,000 for his career. “We’ve got a tough schedule.”MTSU’s Reggie Scurry added 14 on 6 of 9 shooting.Vanderbilt went 18 of 19 from the foul line (95 per cent) and made nine 3-pointers.Vanderbilt took charge early, grabbing a 42-21 halftime lead as Middle Tennessee missed 18 of its first 26 shots.Aaron Nesmith led the Commodores with eight rebounds and added nine points.BIG PICTUREMiddle Tennessee: The Blue Raiders’ slump continued as they struggled offensively.Vanderbilt: The Commodores still are adjusting to the loss of Garland, who sat on the bench for the first time since undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. He was projected as a lottery pick in the upcoming NBA Draft.BUTLER ELIGIBLEMiddle Tennessee’s Darnell Butler, a Seminole State (Okla.) transfer, was ruled eligible Wednesday.

Coal mine methane in a world firstCoal mine methane in a world first


first_imgThe Premier of New South Wales, Australia, Morris Iemma MP, today officially opened BHP Billiton’s West Cliff Ventilation Air Methane Project (WestVAMP) – a world-first greenhouse gas reduction initiative. Situated at BHP Billiton Illawarra Coal’s West Cliff coal mine, the project is the first demonstration of commercial power generation solely from mine ventilation air. It follows seven years of collaboration with technology provider MEGTEC Systems, owned by US Company Sequa Corp.The A$30 million plant will generate approximately 5 MW of electricity and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 250,000 t of carbon dioxide equivalent each year. With the assistance of a A$6 million contribution from the Australian Greenhouse Office Greenhouse Gas Abatement Programme, the project has involved construction of a facility to generate power from mine ventilation air which contains very low concentrations of methane. It is another example of BHP Billiton’s commitment to using waste methane gas for power generation. For more than 10 years, the company has used methane extracted during the mining process to generate electricity. Premier Iemma congratulated BHP Billiton on its commitment to greenhouse gas abatement. “This facility will make a significant contribution to greenhouse gas reduction in New South Wales, and I applaud the ingenuity of BHP Billiton and its technology providers MEGTEC Systems AB,” he said.BHP Billiton Illawarra Coal President, Colin Bloomfield, said the project was a fine example of BHP Billiton’s Climate Change Policy in action. “The policy is about delivering real reductions in the greenhouse gas intensity of our production processes and WestVAMP is making a significant contribution to reducing BHP Billiton’s carbon footprint,” Mr Bloomfield said. “The NSW Government’s forward thinking Greenhouse Gas Abatement Scheme has provided the fiscal conditions to make this innovative investment possible.”last_img read more


Noonan US Senate is misleading the world on Irelands tax rateNoonan US Senate is misleading the world on Irelands tax rate


first_imgMICHAEL NOONAN has said a United States Senate report into Ireland’s corporate tax – and how the Irish taxation system is used by companies like Apple – is “misleading”.The finance minister says claims that Ireland has an effective 2 per cent rate of tax for Apple is based on a flawed premise, and again insisted that Ireland does not negotiate with individual companies to decide how much tax they should pay.Noonan told the Dáil this evening that the ’2 per cent’ rate was calculated by taking Apple’s Irish tax bill as a percentage of its total global profits – and therefore wrongly claimed that Ireland could tax all of Apple’s profits worldwide.“Companies that are not tax resident in Ireland are no more chargeable… than in the United States,” Noonan said.“It is clearly wrong and misleading to attribute this tax of tax to Ireland.”The minister told Labour backbenchers Ann Phelan and Robert Dowds that tax avoidance by international companies was a concern, however, and that governments around the world were “now taking coordinated actions to ensure that corporations pay their fair share of tax”.Dowds called on Taoiseach Enda Kenny, who will be attending next month’s G8 summit in Fermanagh as Ireland holds the EU Presidency, to ensure that an international campaign against tax avoidance was discussed at the summit.Read: Leaders back EU’s plan to attack ‘tax planning’ by the end of 2013last_img read more

Hillary Clintons ResumeHillary Clintons Resume


first_img(WSVN) – Hillary Clinton’s foray into the political arena started decades ago.“What I’ve tried to do in this campaign is what I’ve tried to do my entire life in public service: Figuring out how we can help each other,” Clinton said.Clinton served as First Lady of Arkansas from 1979-1981 and again from 1983-1992, but she didn’t enter the national spotlight until Bill Clinton was elected President in 1992.She played a key role in her husband’s successful presidential campaign. She acted as his chief advisor, gave many speeches and greeted voters.Then, as First Lady, she set up her own office in the West Wing and appointed her own staff — something that had never been done before.She has pushed for the Family and Medical Leave Act, or FMLA, and now wants to take that further.As president she plans to guarantee 12 weeks paid family or medical leave to care for a new baby or sick family member. She also wants to double the child tax credit for middle class families from $1,000 to $2,000. “In addition to creating jobs, I want to raise the national minimum wage so that if you work full time you’re not in poverty.”“If companies try to ship jobs overseas, we’re going to make them pay back every penny in any tax benefit they ever got.”So who will foot the bill?“I’ve been very clear about how we’re going to pay for what I want to do.

first_img Travelweek Group Have we seen the end of the staycation? Three cheers from the travel industry Tags: Enterprise Posted by Wednesday, December 21, 2016 center_img << Previous PostNext Post >> Share TORONTO — A new poll says the ‘staycation’ trend may be on its way out – and thank goodness for that.According to Enterprise’s ‘Weekend Getaway Survey’, nearly two-thirds of people who plan on taking a weekend getaway in 2017 will travel more than 240 kilometres from home. While weekend getaways are typically booked by the drive market, any indication that consumers are weary of their own backyards and ready to travel farther afield is a good sign.“A weekend away is a time for them to escape – to reset and recharge before jumping back into another week,” said Steve Short, Vice President at Enterprise.“Some of the results were surprising, but also very encouraging in the sense that so many people intend to take weekends away in 2017”, with nearly eight in 10 respondents indicating that they were planning to take at least one weekend trip. “We see that as further proof that taking time away to explore what we’re passionate about and be with the ones who matter most just makes our lives richer and better.”More news:  Onex paying big to get WestJet and that will send airfares soaring, says CWTMore results from the survey:24% are planning to visit a major city, 19% are planning to visit the beach and 14% are planning to visit the mountains.Repeat destinations seem to be preferred in 2017.

Indians are turning into impulsive pilgrims OYO surveyIndians are turning into impulsive pilgrims OYO survey


first_imgAccording to a survey conducted by OYO, a growing number of Indian travellers are seeking a holistic experience when they travel to destinations traditionally known for their religious symbolism. They now look for more experiences to club with their pilgrimage to optimise their travel.These insights have been published in the ‘Connected Pilgrims Survey’ which was conducted across 11 cities (Delhi-NCR, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Patna, Bengaluru, Chennai, Lucknow, Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad, and Kolkata) through detailed in-person interactions with 1700 respondents.Ritesh Agarwal, Founder & CEO, OYO, said, “Travel to religious destinations is among the largest segment of the domestic travel business. Today, lakhs of travellers heading to diverse pilgrimage destinations like Shirdi, Tirupathi, Ujjain and Puri have an assured accommodation option through OYO. We conducted this survey so that travel service providers like us could better understand the expectations of these guests and how to serve them.”The conclusion revealed that Indian travellers are looking for a holistic experience when they travel, even to religious destinations. These ‘pragmatic pilgrims’, often travel as family-group spanning different age-groups and therefore, look for a variety of experiences. Those travelling with friends of the same age-group also often look for interest-based activities to make the holiday memorable.65% respondents suggested they would visit a site of religious prominence for reasons beyond spirituality or religion. With over 50% respondents stating that their ideal pilgrimage duration is for 1-2 days, the demand for leisure travel has seen a surge as short weekend breaks appear to be the growing norm.last_img read more


PHOENIX — The first two draft picks of the Steve KPHOENIX — The first two draft picks of the Steve K


first_imgPHOENIX — The first two draft picks of the Steve Keim and Bruce Arians era were Jonathan Cooper and Kevin Minter.After two seasons in the NFL, neither has made much of an impact. Cooper, the seventh pick in the 2013 draft, lost his entire rookie season to a broken leg, and then struggled with various maladies in 2014. He appeared in three games last season, experiencing some success, but was unable to stay on the field. Likely in part because of Cooper’s failure to establish himself, the Cardinals went out and paid big money to Pro Bowl left guard Mike Iupati. That signing will move Cooper to the right side, where he has played some but was not the position he was selected so highly to man. To some, that would seem like a bit of an indictment on the former North Carolina Tar Heel, or at least a sign of the team maybe losing faith in their former top pick. If that was the case, 2015 would seem to be a bit of a “make or break” year for the 25-year-old. But Cardinals coach Bruce Arians says that, actually, is not the case.“No, no,” he said. “He’s just got to stay healthy,” Arians said. “Every time Coop gets out there he’s still a rookie. He’s only played, what, three games last year? No games the year before. So he’s always going back to step one, so it is frustrating.“But right now he looks great and hopefully he can stay healthy; there’s no question he has the ability to be a heck of a player.”Minter, the 45th overall selection in the 2013 draft, played just one defensive snap as a rookie, and then last year, when he was expected to take over at inside linebacker and be an impact player, suffered a pectoral injury in preseason and finished with 49 tackles — five of which were for a loss — with one sack and one pass defensed. He played in all 16 games, starting five, but, like Cooper, did not establish himself the way it was hoped he would. It’s not a bad collection of talent, but for Arians and Keim, their top two picks that year stepping up would go a long way toward the Cardinals being successful in 2015. They’re waiting. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Top Stories center_img The Cardinals’ offseason moves have not necessarily targeted Minter’s position, but there has been plenty of chatter about how the linebacker group could use an upgrade. But in terms of the expectations for the former LSU Tiger, Arians said little has changed since they drafted him.“The position’s changed,” he said. “MIKE linebackers are kind of like nose guards; when you’re playing running teams, they get to play. We don’t play too many of them anymore.“So you hate to say a guy’s a bust because he’s not playing a lot, but that’s a first- or second-down player that we needed at that time.”The Cardinals’ 2013 draft class was made up of nine players. Of the other seven, their third-round pick, safety Tyrann Mathieu, looks like a potential star, sixth-round pick Andre Ellington is a big part of the offense as a running back, fourth-round choice Alex Okafor has shown flashes as a pass rusher and fifth-round pick Stepfan Taylor has carved out a role in the backfield. Another fourth-round choice, guard Earl Watford, will be battling for a starting spot this offseason. Ryan Swope (receiver, sixth round) and D.C. Jefferson (tight end, seventh round) are no longer with the team.
