New Brunswick sets 19 as the minimum age for marijuana consumption

first_imgFREDERICTON – The New Brunswick government is setting 19 as the minimum legal age for cannabis use.Health Minister Benoit Bourque said Wednesday it’s the right age to make an informed decision, and matches the province’s minimum age for alcohol use.He said other provinces are also aligning ages on marijuana and alcohol use.Public Safety Minister Denis Landry says setting the age at 19 will help to achieve the goal of keeping marijuana out of the hands of criminals and youth.The federal government plans to legalize recreational cannabis by July 2018.In September, Ontario announced it plans to set the minimum age at 19 and sell cannabis through government-run outlets.Last month, Alberta proposed to make 18 the minimum age to use marijuana, with no decision yet on whether to sell cannabis through government-run stores or through private operators.The Nova Scotia government is seeking feedback on a legal age of 19 for marijuana use, with sales through a Crown corporation like the Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation.Last week, the New Brunswick government announced that a subsidiary of NB Liquor will operate retail stores and online sales of recreational cannabis.Shoppers will have their identification checked at the door and all products will be kept under glass.A tender was recently issued for 20 retail locations in 15 communities across the province.last_img read more

Italy Sentences Moroccan Nabil Benhamir to 5 Years for Terrorism Plot

Rabat – Police arrested the 29-year-old man in July 2017 for abusing his former partner. A judge sought a second arrest warrant following an investigation when his name was found in the black list of foreign ISIS fighters. Italian police said Benhamir had received “the call” to action and was awaiting instructions on how to carry out terror acts for ISIS.At sentencing yesterday, the ISIS-linked suspect did not appear in person but was connected by video conference. Benhamir is believed to be an ISIS member who returned to Italy from Syria to train other ISIS members to make explosives, reported Italian outlet Giustizia News24.  Italian news outlets reported that the police investigation found instructions for how to ignite explosives with old cell phones, one of which was in the man’s possession when he was arrested.Europol, the FBI, and the Dutch police cooperated in the investigation. read more

UN environment chief hails push for protection of ozone layer to combat

The head of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) has applauded the findings of a new study that calls for a “parallel push” to fight climate change and also to decrease chemicals harming the ozone layer which shields the Earth from harmful ultraviolet light.“I believe the study,” released yesterday, “underscores the simple fact that well-devised action to address one area of environmental concern can have multiple environmental benefits across numerous others,” said UNEP’s Executive Director Achim Steiner.The Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer, now entering its 20th year, is one of the most successful environmental agreements to date. It has succeeded in phasing out ozone depleting chemicals (ODS) in developed countries, led to the closure of many plants producing ODS and discouraged the creation of industries that use them.“The climate dimension of the Montreal Protocol is a story that is not widely known, but one that deserves more consideration by the communities involved in ozone and climate protection,” he said.This study, by scientists from the Netherlands and the United States, is the first to calculate in detail how the phasing out and reduction of chemicals such as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) assist in protecting the climate. CFCs were once very commonly used in products such as refrigerators, but contributed to the depletion of the ozone layer.In a related development, Mr. Steiner also lauded yesterday’s launch of a report on managing Brazil’s water resources, a collaborative effort combining the work of the Government, UN agencies and Brazilian institutions and specialists.Welcoming the Global Environment Outlook (GEO) on Water Resources in Brazil report, Mr. Steiner noted that the “inclusiveness” involved in producing the study is “mirrored in Brazil’s evolving water management initiatives such as those on river basins, where the Federal and state level to the private sector and non- governmental organizations are represented.” 6 March 2007The head of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) has applauded the findings of a new study that calls for a “parallel push” to fight climate change and also to decrease chemicals harming the ozone layer which shields the Earth from harmful ultraviolet light. read more

Scouting Wisconsin OSU looking to jump on Badgers early

Michigan State’s Demetrious Cox (7) tackles Wisconsin’s Corey Clement (6) during second-half action on Saturday, Sept. 24, 2016, at Spartan Stadium in East Lansing, Mich. Wisconsin won, 30-6. Credit: Courtesy of TNSLast week, even after a 38-17 victory over Indiana at Ohio Stadium, Ohio State coach Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes were disappointed in the team’s performance as a whole. After struggling to find a rhythm against the Hoosiers in the passing game and giving up a few big plays, the Scarlet and Gray will be facing their biggest test of the year this Saturday against Wisconsin.The Badgers have been a tough team to beat this season, losing just one game to Michigan in the team’s last contest. The loss did not force Wisconsin outside of the top 10, and the hard fought 14-7 game against the Wolverines proved the validity of the team in this year’s playoff picture. Presenting one of the best defenses in college football, Wisconsin will be hosting OSU in the comforts of Camp Randall Stadium, home to historically rowdy fans that can create a difficult atmosphere for opposing teams to play in. If OSU wants to keep a perfect record, the errors from the Indiana game will need to be corrected, and the Buckeyes will need a team effort to pick up a win in Madison, Wisconsin.Last time the teams met, OSU put a 59-0 thumping on Wisconsin during the Big Ten championship. This year, the team is different, and Meyer knows it.“(The championship game) really has nothing to do with this one,” Meyer said. “But, obviously, it was a historic moment.”OffenseIn years past, the Badgers have enjoyed a high-powered offense. Most recently, now San Diego Charger Melvin Gordon led the offensive attack for Wisconsin from the backfield, but this is not the same kind of unit that faced OSU in the 2014 Big Ten championship.Wisconsin has depended on the play of both redshirt senior Bart Houston and redshirt freshman Alex Hornibrook at quarterback to lead the offense. Both players have struggled with consistency this season, accumulating a 59 percent completion average and just six touchdowns, along with seven interceptions.Hornibrook was the go-to guy for Wisconsin in its last contest. However, he failed to impress, going 9-for-25 for just 88 yards, one touchdown and three picks. Although he still is listed as the starter, more inconsistent play by the redshirt freshman might pave the way for Houston to make an appearance against the Buckeyes.Wisconsin junior wide receiver Jazz Peavy leads the team in receiving yards and touchdown receptions, but has yet to truly shine with a lack of consistent quarterback play. To score, the Badgers have leaned heavily on the run.Totalling five touchdowns on the ground, senior running back Corey Clement has more scores responsible for than either quarterback from Wisconsin. Averaging 3.9 yards per carry, Clement has the speed to break an outside run, but the strength to push through the trenches. Redshirt sophomore safety Malik Hooker said he feels his unit will be vital in stopping Clement and the rest of the Wisconsin rushing attack.“I feel like we’re a very physical secondary even from the first week of the season,” he said. “I feel like we’re just coming up and making good plays and supporting the run. I just feel like we are doing what we’re supposed to. We’re covering, and we’re coming down and supporting when we are needed.”Wisconsin might have an offense that fails to produce eye popping numbers in major statistical categories, but is more than enough to supplement its stout defense. DefenseThe true star of the Badger defense is junior outside linebacker T.J. Watt, brother of NFL Pro Bowl defensive end J.J. Watt, the Wisconsin native has been a disruptive force off the edge all year long.“He’s a good player; he’s like a walkout linebacker, D-end type of guy” said junior offensive tackle Jamarco Jones. “He’s a pretty good pass rusher. He’s good with his hands and stuff, so we have our work cut out for us. We have to come in with a game plan and execute and use our techniques and stuff.”Watt has earned 5.5 sacks this season, which accounts for a third of the team’s sacks overall. Wisconsin has given up just 61 points through five games this season, averaging out to 12.2 points per game.The Badgers defense gives up fewer than 300 yards per game, and is one of the best defenses in the nation at halting offensive attacks in the redzone. OSU has a high-powered offense that depends on big plays to move down the field, but Wisconsin has the kind of defense that is efficient at limiting long gains and potent scoring.The key for OSU will be to attack quickly, not allowing the Badger defense to dissect each formation and play. Meyer said Wednesday he feels his team has been most successful through the years with an up-tempo approach, but will need to focus on moving the chains.“Probably, historically, that’s been the case,” Meyer said. “We’ve had good conversation about that, so the one thing (is) you better get first downs when you go up-tempo.”A tough run defense for Wisconsin is backed by a more than capable passing defense. Junior cornerback Derrick Tindal leads that unit, having earned three interceptions and five pass breakups to this point. OSU might struggle against the most formidable defense it has faced all year, but look for redshirt freshman running back Mike Weber and junior H-back Curtis Samuel to carry the load for the OSU offense.BreakdownThis game has the making of a knockdown, drag-it-out brawl between two football powerhouses. Two stout defenses that lead the nation will clash against opposing offenses that find success in different ways.While the defense of Wisconsin has the ability to shut down even the most prolific offenses in the nation, the Buckeyes offensive attack is unlike any other in the country.Look for a bounce back game for OSU redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett, who struggled last week. Although the pass rush for Wisconsin might cause problems on deep passes, the athleticism of the Texas native could create coverage problems for the Badgers.The defense for the Buckeyes has forced turnovers in all but one game this year, and this game is shaping up to have more than one change of possession. Whether it be Houston or Hornibrook, the secondary for OSU has a good chance to snag another interception.Even if these elements are in play for OSU, expect this one to come down to wire, with some late game heroics being the deciding factor. Junior defensive end Jalyn Holmes said he’s never been to Camp Randall Stadium, but is excited for the crowd to be against him and his teammates. Feeding off the negativity of the away crowd has been a talking point for many of the Buckeyes all week, and they will need it if they hope to come out on top.Strap in ladies and gentleman, this one is going to be good. read more

LeBron And The Rest Of The Cavs Are Better This Year

But it also bears mentioning that Cleveland has been playing well above its established talent level during the playoffs thus far. Their offense has been an order of magnitude better than it was during the regular season, and although some of that has come from simply shooting the lights out (their effective field goal percentage has been a league-best 5.1 percentage points above what we’d expect from the quality of their shots during the playoffs), they’re also assisting on a higher percentage of their made buckets in the playoffs — perhaps a sign of the greater cohesion James alluded to.So if we gauge supporting casts by postseason performance alone (again measured by BPM), the 2016 Cavs emerge as the best group of teammates ever to accompany James to the NBA Finals — and the 10th best to support any star player, period: For the 14th time, we’ll get an NBA Finals rematch, this one between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers. Last year, the Warriors overcame a few early-series hiccups to close out LeBron James and the otherwise-undermanned Cavs in six games, beating them by an average of 7.2 points per game in the series. But James thinks things will be different this time around.“We’re better built to start the finals than we were last year,” James told reporters Tuesday. “We have another year under our belt and more chemistry, [and] healthwise, you know we’re healthy and we’re excited about the opportunity.”He’s right that this version of the Cavs is far better than the iteration Cleveland sent to the finals last season. Missing Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving for much of the postseason a year ago — Love was lost for the playoffs in the first round, and Irving logged only one appearance in the finals — the Cavs provided James with one of the worst supporting casts ever dragged to the cusp of a championship. That Cleveland at one point managed to claim a 2-1 series lead against Golden State was mostly a testament to the singular greatness of James, who produced one of the best individual performances in finals history despite losing.The Cavaliers who suit up alongside James this year will be far better. To measure the quality of James’ supporting cast (and those of every player who led his team to the NBA Finals since 19791The earliest season for which data availability makes this exercise possible.), I first calculated a multi-year Box Plus/Minus (BPM) talent projection for every player on a finalist’s playoff roster, tracking the number for the team’s best player2I was liberal in my definition of a team’s “best player” — if a player either had the highest talent rating on his team’s postseason roster, or led the team in playoff value over replacement player, I included him in the sample. as well as his teammates. (Defining the quality of a player’s teammates as his team’s BPM if that player was replaced with a league-average, zero-BPM talent.) While James’ supporting cast last year ended up ranking 88th out of 93 entrants since 1979 — sixth from the bottom of the list — this year’s version ranks a far more respectable 50th in terms of raw talent. It isn’t James’ most talented set of finals teammates — that honor is reserved for the 2011 Heat (for all the good it did them). And it still isn’t more talented than the crew Stephen Curry will be rolling with in Golden State. The Warriors’ supporting cast ranks 42nd if you consider Curry their top player. (They also rise to 22nd if Draymond Green is considered No. 1; Green leads the team in VORP this postseason, though it’s mostly a function of Curry’s missing so many games earlier in the playoffs.) VIDEO: LeBron’s supporting cast is playing better than Curry’s Furthermore, James himself is also enjoying one of his best-ever playoff performances this season. That’s why, according to playoff BPM, the Cavs as a whole rank fourth among all NBA Finalists since 1979. If we focus on recent play, Cleveland certainly looks “better built” this time around.But a team’s long-term track record should count for something as well, and by that standard the Warriors still have the edge. Golden State went into last year’s finals with an Elo rating (our pet metric for gauging team strength) 90 points ahead of Cleveland — the equivalent of 3.2 points per game on the scoreboard at a neutral court — and they currently lead the Cavs by 64 — about 2.3 points per game — despite Cleveland’s playoff surge. Slicing the favorite’s edge by nearly a point per game isn’t nothing, but the Warriors also have home-court advantage again, to say nothing of the benefits they might reap from their championship experience of a year ago.So even the better-built version of the Cavs comes into the finals as an underdog. But with superior teammates this time around, James will have a far better opportunity than last year to change his underwhelming lifetime finals record for the positive. The rest will be up to him.Check out our latest NBA Finals predictions. read more

Galaxy Note 8 poses for more photos this time with an SPen

first_imgMore and more it seems like manufacturers are catching on to the fact that there’s a market for smaller tablets in the world. Samsung has tried to enter this arena a few times now with overpriced Android tablets, and it looks like they are trying again with an S-Pen ready 8-inch Galaxy Note tablet.Samsung has had mixed responses from the Galaxy Note line. The original Galaxy Note and Galaxy Note 2 are both popular smartphones that have, in many ways, ushered in this new wave of 5-inch smartphones. The unique combination of Samsung’s S-Pen interactions and the TouchWiz multi-window feature, which allows users to run two apps side by side, exist as powerful exclusives for Samsung. When they tried to push this design to the Galaxy Note 10.1, the resulting lackluster specs and high price resulted in mediocre sales. In an attempt to expand the Galaxy Note line, Samsung is clearly pursuing a middle ground between the 5.5-inch Galaxy Note 2 and the Note 10.1 with the Galaxy Note 8.0.Samsung was the first major Android manufacturer to release a 7-inch tablet with the Galaxy Tab. At the time, Google had stated that Android wasn’t ready for larger screens, but Samsung dove in head first. The Galaxy Tab wasn’t terribly successful, due mostly to the pricing and awkward user experience. Now that Google has prepared Android for all screen sizes, and Samsung’s TouchWiz software has evolved to include the impressive multi-window system, a return to this form factor makes sense.The photos that have leaved so far of this tablet show off what looks like a large Galaxy Note, complete with the same button layout and UI format. Unlike the Note 10.1, the GN 8.0 will be held and used in portrait, though it remains to be seen just how much effort Samsung has put into optimizing TouchWiz for this hardware. Given that this is the second time we’ve seen the Galaxy Note 8.0 in as many days, the likelihood that this tablet will be announced at the Mobile World Congress is all but assured.The tablet ecosystem has changed dramatically since the release of the original Galaxy Tab. On top of impressive hardware, Samsung will need a compelling price point to compete with the Nexus 7, the Kindle Fire HD, and the iPad Mini.Via Frandroidlast_img read more

Athens rents plummet

first_imgReflecting the overall shrunken state of the Greek economy, rents for small, old Athenian apartments of up to 60 square meters have fallen by a total of 50 per cent since the recession started in 2008, according to research conducted by real estate consultancy group Remax Newdeal.Rental rates for such properties have dropped by an estimated 5 to 7 per cent over the past year alone, the same study revealed. The drastic slide in rental rates for small, old flats in Athens, which wipes out the considerable gains made by property owners in the run-up to the economic crisis, has been attributed to the reduced number of Greek students relocating to the capital for studies, as well as lower demand from the immigrant market.Another study, conducted by Alpha Bank, showed that rent levels increased by nearly 43 per cent between 2000 and 2011. The same study also revealed that property values soared by 91 per cent between 2000 and 2008.Source: Ekathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Palestine recognised as independent state by Greek parliament

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The Greek parliament has recognised the Palestine as an independent state, during an official visit to Greece by Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas. The unanimous decision announced on Tuesday will see Greece change ‘PA [Palestinian Authority]’ to ‘Palestine’ in all of its official documentation.While Palestine has been recognised by the Greek parliament, it has yet to be recognised by the Greek state.The move has quickly received criticism however from the Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely. He claimed that the decision ultimately “leads nowhere” and has “no practical significance”.In recognised the independent Palestinian state, Greece joins Sweden who also recognised the state last year with the first embassy opening in Stockholm in January 2015.Palestinian statehood has also been recognised by France, the UK and the Vatican but with restrictions that do not legally require them to take any action as a result. While in September, the UN raised the Palestinian for the first time in the headquarters’ history as a symbolic gesture.Source: RT Newslast_img read more

Immigration Ordinance changes approved in the House of Assembly

first_img TCI Premier blasts Opposition side for “slop” information, sets it straight in HOA Budget cuts hurt, but necessary says TCI Deputy Premier in parliamentary debate on hurricane funds Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 20 Aug 2015 – An immigration law instituted in 2012 is being reversed and for some Turks and Caicos Islanders with foreign spouses, it will mean you are free to apply for Islander Status and likely get it. If on August 13, 2012 you had already met the requirement of being married five years to your partner, you will be given reprieve and can apply for status for your spouse because the amendment to the Immigration law has been approved this week in the House of Assembly. Border Control and Employment issued a statement to say: “Persons who were married before the change of law on August 13, 2012, can benefit from the law as it was on that date…” but they also explain that, the law will stand for anyone who was not married five years on that date. “Everyone who would have gotten married on or after August 13, 2012, would have to continue to wait the 10 years, as prescribed in the 2012 amendment.” Another change agreed to by the majority of Parliamentarians, is in Sections 13 and 30 of the Immigration Ordinance where a re-wording now gives a spouse of an Islander the right to work in the Turks and Caicos even if they are no longer living together. If that foreign spouse is in possession of a Residence Permit, then they are legally able to be gainfully employed.
