Sheila LaRoseSpecial to APTN NewsLarissa Kitchemonia sits cross-legged on the floor chatting with other artists as they dip their brushes in Tim Horton’s cups filled with water, and paint on canvas tipi liners.The artists are students and alumni of the First Nations University of Canada (FNUC).“Collaborative painting comes with its challenges,” said Kitchemonia. “This project turned out to be a good mix of different areas of interest…there’s always things to learn from each other.”While most of the artists are from Saskatchewan, Adam Martin is from Six Nations and Bruno Hernani is from Peru.The students are painting a series of 50-foot wide canvas liners that will be installed in each tipi.“They’re huge,” says artist Jori Cachene. “There’s three of those in the big tipi, so it’s a gigantic job.“What we decided to do was amalgamate all seven artists (and) work on the largest tipi together. We came up with the themes together and… incorporated everybody’s ideas into one design.”Jori Cachene at work with a painted tipi. Photo courtesy: FNUC.The theme of the main tipi is “those who have gone before,” said Peter Brass, Art Collection Manager at FNUC.“It could be veterans, it could be missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls, it could be residential schools and children that passed away there, it could be Sixties Scoop.”The liners will be installed inside 14 tipis on the lawn of the First Nations University campus in Regina.Finding 14 tipis wasn’t easy, according to Brass.“Tipi-makers are in high demand,” he says. “The people that could provide Cree tipis could only commit to making three. The other ones we ordered from the States, and they exclusively make Sioux (tipis).”Roland Kaye, Elders’ helper at FNUC, was responsible for setting up the tipis of different sizes and styles – some had 13 poles, some had 15.In the 1980s, a group of Saskatchewan Elders developed teachings to go with each pole, according to Kaye.“Those values, I tell people, are instilled in each and every one of us,” he said. It’s not just a First Nations value or teaching–like love, or trust, or respect.“Each and every one of us has that within us, to live like that. So, these teachings, to me, are a tool to live a better life.”Using tipi poles as a way to teach values is a new development.“I’m sure a hundred years ago, when they were putting up their tipi, they weren’t saying, ‘Here’s the love pole,’” said Kaye. “It was more or less survival–let’s get our camp together and survive.”Still, says Kaye, “They’re good teachings. Everybody utilizes them at some point in their life. Schools use them, lots of institutions use them.Cachene envisions the tipis being a gathering place over the summer months, a place for students and visitors to learn.“We’ll be here all summer,” she said. “Come visit! Pull us out of our little paint world and come talk to us.”Editor’s Note: APTN News is partnering with the First Nations University of Canada for the month of June to bring you stories from emerging Indigenous journalists throughout Indigenous History Monthnews@aptn.ca@aptnnews read more

19 December 2007In a major step forward in addressing sexual exploitation and abuse by United Nations personnel, a working group of the General Assembly today agreed on a strategy to assist victims, ranging from medical treatment and counselling to social support, legal services and material care. In a major step forward in addressing sexual exploitation and abuse by United Nations personnel, a working group of the General Assembly today agreed on a strategy to assist victims, ranging from medical treatment and counselling to social support, legal services and material care. In addition, the strategy commits the UN to helping children born as a result of sexual exploitation and abuse.“This is an important day for the victims, whose suffering can be reduced with the UN’s support,” the Chair of the working group, Costa Rica’s Permanent Representative Jorge Urbina, said. The UN, which fields nearly 200,000 people from over 100 countries in its peacekeeping missions, has instituted a policy of zero tolerance against sexual abuse and exploitation ever since the problem surfaced in 2004, when a UN report found that a “shockingly large number” of peacekeepers had engaged in such practices in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).The report cited payments for sex sometimes ranging from two eggs to $5 per encounter. The victims included many abandoned orphans who were often illiterate. Assistant Secretary-General Jane Holl Lute, Officer-in-Charge of the Department of Field Support, called today’s agreement an important day for the UN. “This policy represents a long overdue measure to strengthen our policy of zero tolerance for sexual exploitation and abuse,” she said.Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Margareta Wahlström noted that a comprehensive approach to victim assistance throughout the UN “will greatly enhance the efficacy of assistance efforts and therefore make an important difference in the lives of victims.” The strategy was developed in part as follow-up to the 2005 World Summit, during which Member States called for a comprehensive approach to victim assistance. The strategy is one arm of a broader UN effort to address sexual exploitation and abuse by UN personnel that includes prevention, enforcement and remedial action. The adoption of the strategy today was undertaken by an ad hoc open-ended working group. The Assembly is expected to formally adopt the strategy before the current session closes. read more
TORONTO — Quebec and Ontario will sign an agreement today to curb greenhouse gas emissions ahead of this week’s premiers conference on climate change.Premiers Kathleen Wynne and Philippe Couillard will unveil a cap-and-trade deal to put a price on carbon and let polluters buy credits from companies that cap their greenhouse gas emissions.Wynne will announce the details at an early morning news conference in Toronto before going to Quebec City to meet with Couillard.The premiers and territorial leaders will meet in Quebec City on Tuesday for a climate change summit.The provincial attention on climate change comes as the federal government is pushing the provinces to finalize their emission plans.Environment Minister Leona Aglukkaq sent a letter to the provinces last week asking for updated numbers.Canada missed a March 31 deadline to submit greenhouse gas emission reduction targets to the United Nations in advance of a global climate change conference in Paris in December.The federal government has said it will present Canada’s targets to the UN well before the summit. read more
Cryptocurrencies resumed their slump on Monday, with Bitcoin piercing the US$5,000 mark for the first time since October 2017, in the wake of increased regulatory scrutiny of initial coin offerings and the split of one of the largest tokens.Bitcoin declined as much as 9 per cent to US$4,958, while so-called alternative coins slumped even more, with Ether tumbling as much as 12 per cent and Litecoin cratering as much as 13 per cent. XRP, the token associated with Ripple, was the lone gainer among major digital currencies. The Bloomberg Galaxy Crypto Index fell as much as 8.3 per cent to a one year-low on a closing basis.“The selloff is related to enforcement, which is almost certainly underway,” said Justin Litchfield, chief technology officer at ProChain Capital. “Projects are being made to return investor money, which, after having spent a ton of money marketing their US$100 million ICO on a lavish party-filled road-show that was the norm for this vintage of ICOs, will be tough.”‘I didn’t sleep well last night’: Bitcoin’s slide just the beginning as analysts brace for a 70% dropBitcoin is plunging again and crypto bulls are wondering how low it will go this time‘The mother of all scams’: Nouriel Roubini rips apart cryptocurrency in Senate hearingThe SEC announced its first civil penalties against two cryptocurrency companies that didn’t register their initial coin offerings as securities. Airfox and Paragon Coin Inc. will each have to pay US$250,000 in penalties to compensate investors, and will also have to register their digital tokens as securities, the agency said in a Nov. 16 news release.The issuers were asked by the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission to provide refunds to investors, raising concern that other companies that used the proceeds from sales to finance projects could be forced to do the same.Volatility has returned to cryptocurrencies, with the largest tokens shedding billions in market value since the hard fork of Bitcoin Cash debuted last week. That came as two software-development factions failed to agree on a way to upgrade the offshoot of the original Bitcoin, leading to a computing power arms race.The cryptocurrency industry has now lost more than US$660 billion in value from a January peak, according to data from CoinMarketCap.com.

Lee, managing partner at Fundstrat Global Advisors and a long-time crypto bull, slashed his year-end price target for Bitcoin to US$15,000 from US$25,000. The target is based on a fair value multiple of 2.2 times the breakeven cost of mining, which the firm pegs at US$7,000, according to a report last week.“Crypto-specific events have led to greater uncertainty in the crypto market, including the contentious hard fork for Bitcoin Cash,” Lee said in the note Friday. Bitcoin’s break below US$6,000 “has lead to a renewed wave of pessimism,” he said.Bitcoin bulls may be able to take heart in some technical measures.

“This report is a call for action to address a large public health problem which has been shrouded in taboo for far too long,” said Dr. Margaret Chan, Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO).The report also notes that the most common methods of suicide globally are pesticide poisoning, hanging and firearms. Evidence from Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, the United States and a number of European countries reveals that limiting access to these means can help prevent people dying by suicide. Another key to reducing deaths by suicide is a commitment by national Governments to the establishment and implementation of a coordinated plan of action, WHO said in a news release. Currently, only 28 countries are known to have national suicide prevention strategies.Among the other findings if the report, which brings together 10 years of research from around the world, is that suicide can take place at almost any age. Globally, suicide rates are highest in people aged 70 years and over. In some countries, however, the highest rates are found among the young. Notably, suicide is the second leading cause of death globally in people between the ages of 15 and 29. Generally, the report pointed out, more men die by suicide than women. In richer countries, three times as many men die by suicide than women. Men aged 50 years and over are particularly vulnerable.Also, some 75 per cent of suicides occur in low- and middle-income countries. Young adults and elderly women in these countries have higher rates of suicide than their counterparts in high-income countries. Women over 70 years of age are more than twice as likely to die by suicide than women aged between 15 and 29 years.In addition to limiting access to means of suicide, the report said that other effective measures to reduce deaths include responsible reporting of suicide in the media, such as avoiding language that sensationalizes suicide and avoiding explicit description of methods used. Early identification and management of mental and substance use disorders in communities and by health workers in particular are also recommended.WHO added that follow-up care by health workers through regular contact, including by phone or home visits, for people who have attempted suicide, together with provision of community support, are essential, because people who have already attempted suicide are at the greatest risk of trying again.“This report, the first WHO publication of its kind, presents a comprehensive overview of suicide, suicide attempts and successful suicide prevention efforts worldwide. We know what works. Now is the time to act,” said Dr. Shekhar Saxena, Director of WHO’s Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse.The report’s launch comes just a week before World Suicide Prevention Day, observed on 10 September every year. The Day provides an opportunity for joint action to raise awareness about suicide and suicide prevention around the world. read more

Veteran digital ad sales leader Jim Norton has joined the ranks of Condé Nast’s leadership as its first ever chief business officer and president of revenue, the company announced today. Norton arrives from AOL, which he joined in 2009 before rising to head of global sales in 2013, responsible for ad sales across AOL’s portfolio of brands. Prior to that, Norton spent three years as national sales manager for Google. He also serves as vice chairman of the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB), and will assume the role of chairman next year. At Condé Nast, Norton will be responsible for all revenue operations for the company’s 22 brands, including print and digital, and will report to president and CEO Bob Sauerberg. “I am excited to work with the creative, award-winning talent at Condé Nast and to harness the power of their brands for clients,” said Norton in a statement. “In every audience segment … Condé Nast is a category leader, and the potential to craft innovative, cross-portfolio marketing partnerships is limitless.” The move to centralize cross-brand revenue operations under an executive with extensive experience leading digital and data-driven sales efforts at large corporations seems to indicate that Condé Nast intends to offer the full weight of its 90-million-strong digital audience in front of advertisers, mirroring recent similar pivots at other large publishers like Time Inc., Hearst, and Meredith. Additionally, Norton’s arrival means chief marketing officer Edward Menicheschi and chief administrative officer Jill Bright are out at Condé Nast, reports WWD. Menicheschi spent eight years as VP/publisher of Vanity Fair before rising to CMO in in 2014. Bright had been with the company since 1993 and had served as chief administrative officer since 2010. “By organizing the company’s numerous revenue operations under Jim, Condé Nast will be well positioned to quickly respond to the dynamic marketplace and our clients’ needs,” said Sauerberg in a statement. “Jim brings a great understanding of the complexities of running a massive sales enterprise and the importance of data-led sales products to maximize our effectiveness.” In June, Condé Nast announced the launch of a new audience data platform, Condé Nast Spire, and rumors of a potential consolidation or elimination of several individual brand publishers, something also seen at Time Inc. and Hearst, have persisted for weeks but not yet come to fruition. Norton’s appointment will likely be seen by many as a harbinger of that long-awaited reorganization. Norton’s first day at Condé Nast’s One World Trade Center digs is October 17. read more
Oil prices opened the final trading session of 2015 in a downbeat mood after record US crude inventories reinforced concerns over a global supply glut that has pulled down prices by a third over the past year.Crude inventories in the United States, the world’s largest petroleum producer, rose 2.6 million barrels last week, the US Energy Information Administration said. Analysts polled by Reuters had expected a draw of 2.5 million barrels.Crude prices held losses after falling 3% in the previous session, with US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures trading around $36.70 per barrel in early Asian hours on Thursday and Brent opening around $36.60 per barrel.The immediate outlook for oil prices remains bleak, with some analysts like Goldman Sachs saying prices as low as $20 per barrel might be necessary to push enough production out of business and allow a rebalancing of the market.US bank Morgan Stanley said in its outlook for next year that “headwinds (are) growing for 2016 oil” citing ongoing increases in available global supplies despite some cuts particularly by US shale drillers as well as a slowdown in demand as the main reasons.”The imbalance in the global oil market has been diminishing in 2H15, but the hope for a rebalancing in 2016 continues to suffer serious setbacks,” the bank said, reflecting a market consensus that meaningfully higher prices are not expected before late 2016.Traders expect some US oil to be taken out of America and supplied into global markets, following the surprise lifting of a decades-old US crude export ban in December, which ended a years-old discount in US crude prices to international Brent.”At a time when US shale is facing headwinds due to the collapse in crude oil prices US crude oil exports are likely to help reduce congestion concerns in the US,” ING bank said.Oil prices began falling in mid-2014 as ballooning output from the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), Russia and also US shale drillers started to outpace demand. The downturn gained pace at the end of 2014 after a Saudi-led OPEC decided to keep production high to defend global market share rather than cut output to prop up prices.A year on, and the oil downturn has turned into a rout with Brent prices briefly falling below $36 per barrel and to levels last seen in over a decade, effectively wiping out the gains from a decade-long commodity super-cycle sparked by China’s unprecedented energy demand boom.The downturn has caused pain across the energy supply chain, including shippers, private oil drillers and oil-dependent countries from Venezuela and Russia to the Middle East.Analysts estimate global crude production exceeds demand by anywhere between half a million and 2 million barrels every day. This means that even the most aggressive estimates of expected US production cuts of 500,000 bpd for 2016 would be unlikely to fully rebalance the market.Russia and OPEC are so far showing few signs of reining in production, leading traders to establish record high active short positions in the market that would profit from further crude price falls. read more
Prime minister Sheikh Hasina addressing officials at her office — Photo: BSSReiterating her stand against corruption, prime minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday said her government will continue its fight against graft to keep up the country’s development spree and uphold its achievements.“Though it’s not possible for any country to root out cent percent corruption, it’s a responsibility of our government to check corruption so that it cannot impede the uplift of the country and ruin our all successes,” she said while exchanging views with senior officials of the prime minister’s office (PMO) on the first working day of her office at the PMO after her reelection as the prime minister for the fourth time.The premier continued: “Our war to stamp out terrorism, graft and narcotics will continue”.Sheikh Hasina said once the incidents of tender hijacking took place frequently in the country. “But, we’ve been able to free the country from this curse…the success came due to the use of technology and it’s a good result of Digital Bangladesh,” she added.Asking the public servants to give more labour for the country’s evelopment, the prime minister said: “All will have to work hard and this labour will be an achievement of the people who are our near and dear ones”.“We want to build Bangladesh as a developed and prosperous nation…we have already got the recognition of the developing country and this achievement will have to be retained,” she said.Extending thanks to the government officials for their cooperation, Sheikh Hasina said whenever her government came to power, it received sincere cooperation of the public servants.“We were able to complete all the development works fast due to cooperation of all government officials and thus advanced the country rapidly,” she said.Stressing the need for making the country self-reliant in all fields, the premier said Bangladesh will have to move keeping pace with the world.“We shouldn’t be dependent on others….we’ll have to stand on our own feet,” she said.Sheikh Hasina urged all to stay alert so that the anti-liberation forces never come to power. “We want that whoever comes to power they will believe in the spirit and thought of independence and the country will move ahead through it.”She said the world people now see Bangladesh in the eyes of honour due to its tremendous development. “But, once we had to hear that Bangladesh means a country of flood, cyclone and famine, which always hurt our self-dignity…we couldn’t tolerate it,” she said.“From that time, I took a vow that none can undermine us. We earned independence through the liberation war and we will move keeping our head high,” she said. read more
Share Bob DaemmrichState Sen. Kel Seliger, R-Amarillo, at Triblive on Dec. 6, 2012.In a nod to one of Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick’s top priorities, the Texas Senate voted Tuesday to freeze tuition at public universities for two years — and then place strict limitations on increases after that.But the idea still faces an uncertain future. The proposal will now head to the House, where leadership is much more skeptical of tuition caps. Senate Bill 19 was approved 29-2 with little discussion. It would ban schools from hiking costs for the two years after the 2017-18 school year. After that, schools would be limited to increases of 1 percent, plus the rate of inflation. And those increases would only be allowed if schools met a series of performance metrics set by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.SB 19’s author, Sen. Kel Seliger, R-Amarillo, has been pushing for a “performance-based tuition” bill since 2015, when the idea passed the Senate but died in the House. The thinking behind it is that schools should have to show improvements in graduation rates and reductions in administrative costs before they change their prices. Senate Bill 19 merges that proposal with a tuition freeze. Democrats and Republicans in the Senate have supported such a freeze, saying it was a mistake by the Legislature to cede control of tuition costs to colleges in 2003. Since then, tuition costs have increased by more than 140 percent.The bill as currently written will likely generate strong pushback from universities’ supporters, who are already alarmed by dramatic cuts to their schools in the proposed Senate budget. Each school now faces a reduction in state funding of between 6 percent and 10 percent. A tuition freeze would limit the schools’ ability to make up for those losses.“SB 19 could be a good idea, but it does not require the state to increase or even maintain its own investments in higher education,” said Garrett Groves, director of the Economic Opportunity Program at the Center for Public Policy Priorities.Meanwhile, Seliger himself questioned whether an increase capped at 1 percent would even make it worth it for schools to chase the goals set out in the bill. Worries about state funding for higher education are widespread this legislative session. Hours before the Senate voted on Senate Bill 19, the members of the Texas Coalition for Excellence in Higher Education spoke out about the situation for the first time in the group’s six-year history. The group of prominent business leaders and philanthropists formed in 2011 in response to governance changes at top state schools proposed by then-Gov. Rick Perry.“Higher education transforms lives for the better; fuels medical, technology and intellectual discoveries; and prepares present and future generations to lead, invent, create, teach and hire,” the group said. “We cannot shortchange our state’s future by underfunding education.”Seliger, who is chairman of the Senate Higher Education Committee and serves on the Senate Finance Committee, acknowledged those worries on the Senate floor Tuesday.“I am determined to do everything we can to keep those universities whole,” he said.He also said Tuesday that he thinks more money for universities will be added into the state’s budget.The House’s version of the budget calls for more funding. And Senate Bill 19 could face a hard time in the lower chamber. House leadership has expressed support in recent months for Seliger’s performance based tuition ideas. They have been far more skeptical of tuition freezes.Last month, House Speaker Joe Straus, a Republican, said tuition in Texas seems to be a “pretty good bargain.” Students are applying to schools in record numbers, he noted.“The supply and demand seems to be working,” he said.And on a stage next to Seliger at a Texas Tribune event earlier Tuesday, House Higher Education Chairman J.M. Lozano, R-Kingsville, said he would have to see the contents of any proposed tuition cap before he took a stance. When pressed, however, he said that — “on its face” he would not be for a cap.House support for another Patrick higher education priority approved Tuesday is also unclear. By a party-line 20-11 vote, Senators approved Senate Bill 18, which would eliminate a rule that requires schools to set 15 percent of money raised from tuition increases for financial aid.Democrats said they were worried that the change would mean less help for poor students. Seliger disputed that notion, however, saying most schools have already said that they don’t plan to direct fewer dollars toward financial aid.Over the objections of some Republicans, he added an amendment to the bill that would create a new $30 million state grant program available to students who attend schools that reduce their tuition by 5 percent.The Senate is expected to give final approval of the bill on Wednesday before sending it to the House.Read more of our related coverage:The top three sources of revenue for Texas public universities are all being targeted for reductions or freezes by federal or state government leaders.

In order to promote cruise tourism in the country and make India an attractive cruise tourism destination, the Ministry of Home Affairs, on the request of Ministry of Shipping, has exempted cruise tourists arriving with e-visa from the requirement of biometric enrolment for a period of three years, until December 31, 2020.This will make immigration clearance of such passengers faster, leaving them with more time to spend on shore. This is also an important factor that helps cruise lines decide whether or not to include a destination in their itinerary.E-Visa has been in place in the five major ports of Mumbai, Mormugao, New Mangalore, Kochi, and Chennai.
A woman was booted off a flight from LA to New York because she refused to stop singing Whitney Houston’s I Will Always Love You.The passenger, who remains unnamed, launched into a rendition of the classic chart-topper shortly after take-off from Los Angeles. She then repeated the performance for nearly three hours. Maybe it was the delivery, maybe it was just the song, but fellow passengers soon tired of hearing the 1994 hit.The pilot of the American Airlines flight was forced to divert and make an emergency landing at Kansas City after the woman became ‘disruptive’, ‘interfering with flight crew’, according to an airport spokesman. Police boarded the plane but she was still singing as she was escorted off. .The singer was quizzed by cops but was released without charge.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map RelatedShould there be child-free zones on planes?
