VANCOUVER — Walking along the base of the Burrard Street Bridge that crosses Vancouver’s False Creek toward the downtown core, Khelsilem gestures across a gravel lot poised to become one of the largest Indigenous urban developments in Canada.The Squamish Nation councillor, who also goes by the name Dustin Rivers, is standing on a pinched triangle of reserve land near the city’s centre that the First Nation won back in 2002 after decades of legal battles.The project is in its very early stages but if all goes as planned, the Squamish Nation will build about 3,000 housing units in a project that promises to answer some of the region’s urgent housing needs at the same time that it presents a test of reconciliation.“For a lot of other First Nations across the country, natural resources is the one option they have for growing their economies. Whereas for us, the land has been completely impacted (by the city’s growth) and so real estate is really the one thing we can get involved in that will make sense to generate revenue,” he said.The same site was home to members of the Squamish Nation for thousands of years before villagers were illegally forced to accept a settlement and shipped on barges to less desirable land along Howe Sound in 1913. It had been declared a reserve in the late-1800s but was gradually fragmented by leases and dissected by railway lines. By 1965, the entire 32-odd hectares of reserve had been sold off.But in 2002, the Squamish regained a small section of the earlier reserve: today’s Kitsilano Indian Reserve No. 6.The idea to build two towers on the site gained some steam in 2009 and 2010 but was abandoned in the economic downturn.Now, Khelsilem said, members are keen to see the First Nation use the land for economic development.“They’re seeing the significant profits that everyone else is making. We’re right in the middle and we’re not doing anything, so I think there’s reasonable impatience that we should be getting involved,” he said.The First Nation is in negotiations with one developer after gathering pitches through a request for proposals. At this stage, it’s looking at primarily rental housing with potential for some affordable units for Squamish members. Of the nation’s 4,000-odd members, about 1,100 are on a waiting list for housing, he said.For Vancouver Mayor Kennedy Stewart, the development offers an answer to one of the city’s biggest problems.“The city is in the middle of a housing crisis, especially when it comes to rentals,” Stewart said, calling the preliminary figure of 3,000 housing units “fantastic.”That’s not an insignificant number for a city that has approved 8,680 purpose-built market rental units over the past 10 years.Stewart also sees it as an expression of reconciliation, acknowledging that if residents oppose the project there are few ways to fight it because the development is on Squamish land and outside the city’s jurisdiction.“The shoe’s on the other foot and there’s really not a lot of need for Squamish to consult with the local community,” he said.Despite that, Stewart said the First Nation has kept him in the loop on its plans since early this year. The relationship Stewart and the First Nation built as allies against the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion has helped.“The thing about reconciliation is you don’t really know what it looks like until you’re in the middle of it. So I think this will set some parameters as to what us, Vancouver, being a city of reconciliation, looks like. I’m very keen to make sure this has the best chance of success.”The Kitsilano neighbourhood is facing forces that could change its character on several fronts. The beachside community of largely single-family residences has historically opposed development on a much smaller scale, including two recent five- and six-storey buildings planned further west.But densification appears inevitable, especially along a SkyTrain line planned several blocks south.“There have been some developments on a smaller scale that have been getting some opposition, there’s no question about that,” said Larry Benge, co-chair of the Coalition of Vancouver Neighbourhoods.For his part, Benge said he recognizes the neighbourhood has no legal say in the matter but wants to let the Squamish Nation know that neighbouring associations are available and interested in participating in engagement.Until more details are released, he said he’s taking an optimistic view of the project.“I don’t want to build into this development a whole slew of, ‘Oh my gosh, what if this happens, isn’t this going to be awful.’ We should instead be looking at, ‘This is a wonderful opportunity for something that could be very positive for everyone involved,’ ” Benge said.Khelsilem said the First Nation plans to communicate with residents, adding it could make the project stronger by raising questions that the designer or developer hadn’t considered.It’s not the first Squamish development, nor the first urban Indigenous development.The MST Development Corp. is a partnership between the Musqueam Indian Band, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations. The three bands are full or co-owners of six prime properties throughout Metro Vancouver, covering more than 65 hectares of land available for development valued at over $1 billion.Among its largest developments, the corporation is beginning consultations on the 36-hectare Jericho lands in West Point Grey.The Musqueam are also planning a 1,250-unit, mixed-use development near the University of British Columbia and the Squamish act as landlords to the Park Royal shopping centre on its reserve land in West Vancouver.Khelsilem said the Park Royal project has provided income that the First Nation can use toward other things, like housing, and the Burrard project is expected to be a similar “money tree” on a much larger scale.The next step will be putting things like the land designation amendment and business terms before Squamish members in a referendum.“This project we’re looking at is much more substantial and significant,” he said.“We want to bring our people home, we want to build more housing for them, we need to create some economic development to pay for it and this is the first step in that.”Amy Smart, The Canadian Press read more
Mumbai: Dinesh Karthik’s experience and composure in pressure situations helped him pip young sensation Rishabh Pant to the second wicketkeeper’s spot in India’s World Cup squad, captain Virat Kohli has said. With Mahendra Singh Dhoni as the undisputed first-choice wicketkeeper of the side, the selectors preferred Karthik, 33, in their 15-man squad over Pant, who is known for his swashbuckling batting. Teams can change players until May 23 and several former players believe India will miss the 21-year-old in the showpiece which gets underway on May 30. “In pressure situations, he’s shown composure,” Kohli said to a newspaper about Karthik. “It was something that everybody on board was convinced about. He has the experience. If, god forbid, something happens to MS (Dhoni), Karthik can be immensely valuable behind the wickets. As a finisher, he’s done well. “So, it was the overall exposure to a tournament of this magnitude that was taken into primary consideration.” Karthik made his one-day international debut in 2004 and has played 91 matches for India in the format, compared with left-handed batsman Pant who has played just five after making his 50-over debut last October. Karthik, who has also played 26 test matches for India, has the ability to bat anywhere in the batting order which makes him a limited-overs asset. “We can very well imagine there’s more than an opinion in place that some capable guys have missed out,” India coach Ravi Shastri added. “Heart goes out to them. “Picking 15 from an immensely talented pool is never easy. I’d say to these guys: Keep going the way you have. Be prepared, in case there’s an unforeseen requirement that pops up.” Unlike the India of the past, the 1983 and 2011 winners also boast a very potent pace attack, led by top-ranked ODI bowler Jasprit Bumrah. The death-overs specialist will be aided by Mohammed Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, with both known for their ability to swing the ball both ways — something which should be handy in conditions in England. “The one common factor binding these guys is confidence,” Kohli said. “They all believe that they can be the best. “There’s no set rule for anything — like Indian spinners have to be the best in the world, the best batsmen or whatever. The thing is, if you believe it, you can achieve it.” India begin their bid for a third World Cup title against South Africa in Southampton on June 5. read more
19 December 2011Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today celebrated the increasing role of South-South cooperation in furthering equality between countries while also encouraging emerging economies “to step up their engagement and become greater providers.” In a message marking the United Nations Day for South-South Cooperation, which is celebrated today, Mr. Ban affirmed that South-South cooperation “can help us meet the shared challenge of creating a more equal and sustainable world” and pointed out it was a critical development tool to advancing equality among countries and addressing the problem of hunger.According to the UN’s International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), nearly one billion women, men and children living in rural areas of the developing world go to bed hungry every night. Around 95 per cent of those considered food insecure live in South Asia or sub-Saharan Africa.“South-South cooperation can achieve results on the ground in ways that traditional development assistance may not because of countries’ geographical proximity, cultural and historical ties, or similar development paths,” he stated, further noting that this year’s commemoration followed a “dramatic” 2011 marked by popular protests against “inequality, indignity, and oppression.”In the past, the bulk of South-South cooperation involved the sharing of technical developments, including the improvement of livestock breeds, health, food processing and efficient water use. Today’s cooperation has added government policy coordination to the list in what is seen as crucial progress towards the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).In one instance of successful South-South cooperation in Madagascar, Chinese experts helped establish a hybrid rice development and demonstration centre where 34 strains of Chinese hybrid rice were grown. The average yield per hectare was two to three times higher than the average output of local rice. “When countries, multilateral agencies and other partners work together throughout the South to pool know-how, exchange ideas and coordinate policies, they unleash a creative force that furthers our development efforts and helps us build the future we want,” the Secretary-General added. read more

Bitcoin’s nine-day rally has pushed it back above $6,000.The biggest cryptocurrency outperformed its closest peers again in the digital market on Thursday and has now rebounded more than 90 per cent from its trough last December.It’s the latest milestone as the wild ride continues for the decade-old token, which crashed last year from a peak of more than US$19,000 in 2017.“The only store of value in the space right now is Bitcoin,” said Michael Novogratz, co-founder and chief executive at Galaxy Investment Partners LLC. “It doesn’t need to change — it’s gold,” he said in an interview on Bloomberg Television from a conference in Las Vegas. Novogratz remains steadfast on cryptocurrencies, has high hopes for next year The mystery of the $2-billion Bitcoin whale that fuelled a selloff ‘The mother of all scams’: Nouriel Roubini rips apart cryptocurrency in Senate hearing The token gained 2.7 per cent to US$6,060 at 9:43 a.m. in London, according to Bloomberg composite pricing.

It’s a cool feature, certainly–we advise you to go over to Yahoo to take it for a spin. The feature alone, however, likely won’t bring too many back to Yahoo’s side. Yahoo’s search for meaning in a post-Google world continues this week with the introduction of Search Direct, a new feature aimed at speeding up search results and “giving you the answers you’re looking for right there in the search box as you type.” It’s certainly similar to Google Instant–a fact we’re not the first to point out.Begin typing a query into the search box over at search.yahoo.com (where the feature is currently live), and a dialog box will drop down. The left-hand side offers up search suggestions as you type, and right-hand side offers links and related content–begin typing “weather,” for example, and the local forecast will pop up.The company is banking on the new feature to help give it a leg up in a field dominated by Google–and, increasingly, Microsoft’s Bing, which has actually been providing back end search results for Yahoo for the past two years. read more

Allemagne : 27 visages des ancêtres de l’homme exposés à DresdeA l’occasion d’une exposition à Dresde, en Allemagne, des chercheurs ont reconstitué en trois dimensions 27 visages de membres évolutifs de la famille des hominidés ayant vécu jusqu’à sept millions d’années auparavant.Devant les squelettes d’hommes de la préhistoire, il est légitime de se demander à quoi pouvaient bien ressembler ces ancêtres. Pour répondre à cette question, une exposition à Dresde, en Allemagne, rassemble 27 représentations de visages des premiers hominidés qui vivaient alors en Afrique il y a jusqu’à sept millions d’années.À lire aussiPourquoi les hommes ont-ils une érection le matin ?Les modèles ont été réalisés à partir de crânes retrouvés par les archéologues et à l’aide de techniques empruntées à la médecine légale. Les chercheurs ont utilisé des outils de reconstitutions assistés par ordinateurs, ordinairement employés par la police pour recomposer le corps d’une victime. “En utilisant les méthodes des légistes, les différents hominidés ont été recréés non pas comme des idéaux caractéristiques, mais comme des individus”, explique un porte-parole de l’exposition dans un communiqué. Cité par le Daily Mail, il poursuit : “Chacun raconte sa propre histoire: où il vivait, ce qu’il mangeait, sa cause probable de décès et bien plus encore”.

2 min read Amazon might soon soar into the air cargo business. The online retail giant is in negotiations to lease 20 Boeing 767 freighter jets with the aim of launching its own air cargo service, according to reports from several media outlets, including VICE’s Motherboard, The Seattle Times and Cargo Facts.The world’s largest ecommerce outlet is reportedly looking to create its own air-delivery operation to curb shipping bottlenecks from third-party carriers, a cargo industry analyst told the Times.Related: Amazon Releases Video Showcasing Delivery DronesIf Amazon’s reported negotiations with Boeing are indeed real and subsequently successful, the pivot would fly in the face of existing international cargo operators that move the company’s cargo, such as FedEx, DHL, UPS and USPS. Owning its own air cargo arm would enable Amazon to dominate its entire distribution network, end to end. It could potentially end Amazon’s reliance on third-party air-cargo suppliers altogether.The Seattle Times also reports that Amazon has discussed leasing cargo planes with several aircraft lessors, including Atlas Air, Air Transport Services Group and Kalitta Air, though Kalitta Air denied the alleged talks.Entrepreneur reached out to Amazon and Boeing to confirm the reports. Both companies replied, but declined to comment.Related: Amazon Has Literally Gone BananasYou might recall that at the height of last year’s holiday shipping season, UPS was unsuccessful in delivering millions of its parcels on time, many of them items ordered on Amazon. In response to UPS’s widespread fail, Amazon took a hit and refunded UPS shipping fees. It also threw in $20 gift cards in an attempt to pacify angry customers.More recently, Amazon has increasingly ramped up its efforts to streamline its shipping operations across the board, rolling out initiatives such as Amazon Prime Now, Amazon Flex and Amazon Fresh. Also front and center in its ambitious package delivery plans is Amazon Prime Air, an unmanned drone program that would courier small packages to customers within an hour, though it won’t deliver a thing without FAA approval first.Related: As Amazon Prime Becomes More Popular, the Threat to Walmart, Target Grows December 18, 2015 Problem Solvers with Jason Feifer Hear from business owners and CEOs who went through a crippling business problem and came out the other side bigger and stronger.

Source = ANA ANA Adopts Sustainable Aviation FuelANA Adopts Sustainable Aviation FuelAll Nippon Airways (ANA), Japan’s largest and 5-star airline for six consecutive years, has partnered with Showa Shell Sekiyu K.K. to purchase 70 thousand US Gallon (approximately 265 KL) of sustainable aviation fuel. This bio jet fuel will be mixed to the current fuel ANA is using on the San Francisco flights and lead to the reduction of roughly 150 tons of carbon dioxide.In addition to reducing the company’s carbon footprint, adopting sustainable aviation fuel also dovetails with ANA’s vision of a world where companies respond positively to calls for environmentally friendly leadership. ANA is focused on meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) set by the United Nations, particularly SDG 7 to “ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all” and SDG 13 to “take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.”“At ANA, we believe that the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals represent a blueprint to a more prosperous and more environmentally responsible future, and we are inspired by the SDG commitment to ‘build a better world for people and our planet’,” said Naoto Takada, Executive Vice President of ANA. “Adopting sustainable aviation fuel is just one step in the fight against climate change, and ANA will continue looking for ways to give back to the planet that we all depend on.”ANA has selected sustainable aviation fuel from World Energy for use in ANA airplanes at San Francisco International Airport. Sustainable aviation fuel has previously been introduced at Los Angeles International Airport and has been regularly used by various airlines including ANA. However, this is the first direct contract ANA has in place to purchase the fuel.ANA has always aimed to challenge the norms in the airline industry. By working with Showa Shell Sekiyu K.K. to use sustainable aviation fuel, ANA hopes to enhance the quality of fuel used in its aircraft while also become the leading eco-friendly airline group by contributing to the environment.Contact: ANA Corporate Communications, TEL +81-3-6735-1111, email@example.comAbout ANAFollowing the “Inspiration of Japan” high quality of service, ANA has been awarded the respected 5-Star rating every year since 2013 from SKYTRAX. ANA is the only Japanese airline to win this prestigious designation six years in a row. Additionally, ANA has been recognized by Air Transport World as “Airline of the Year” three times in the past 10 years – 2007, 2013 and 2018, becoming one of the few airlines winning this prestigious award for multiple times.ANA was founded in 1952 with two helicopters and has become the largest airline in Japan, as well as one of the most significant airlines in Asia, operating 78international routes and 118 domestic routes. ANA offers a unique dual hub model which enables passengers to travel to Tokyo and connect through the two airports in the metropolitan Tokyo, NARITA and HANEDA, to various destinations throughout Japan, and also offers same day connections between various North American, Asian and Chinese cities.ANA has been a member of Star Alliance since 1999 and has joint venture partnerships with United Airlines, Lufthansa German Airlines, Swiss International Airlines and Austrian Airlines.Besides the full service and award winner carrier ANA, the ANA Group has two LCCs as consolidated subsidiaries, Vanilla Air Inc. and Peach Aviation Limited. The ANA Group carried 53.8 million passengers in FY2017, has approximately 39,000 employees and a fleet of 260 aircraft.

Disappointed passengers on the crippled Norwegian Star have been offered a full refund and 50% off their next cruise, along with other sweeteners, after the luxury ship’s propulsion system failed, stranding the vessel 30km off Wilson’s Promontory on Victoria’s east coast on Friday.Norwegian Star was sailing from Melbourne to New Zealand, carrying more than 3,000 passengers and crew, but was barely out of Victoria when it was set adrift. Two tugs brought the ship to Melbourne’s Station Pier on Saturday night and the cruise line says repairs could take up to 48 hours. Some passengers have reported being told that the wait to sail again could be as long as five days. Norwegian Cruise Line confirmed the ship’s propulsion system stopped working in the early hours of Friday, when the ship was en route to Tasmania and due to dock in Burnie after leaving Melbourne.

Lawmakers on Wednesday discussed the need to enact legislation compelling administrative authorities to comply with court decisions.The House ethics committee heard that a lot of sectors such as the civil service, the police, army and the wider public sector, including local authorities, failed to comply with decisions that concerned appointments, promotions and other employment issues.MPs heard the problem mostly concerned older decisions, as the majority of government branches and departments now fully complied with court decisions.Justice Minister Ionas Nicolaou said they have prepared legislation on the matter, currently being processed by the Legal Service.“The political position is that there must be a law regulating the mandatory compliance of administrative bodies with the decisions of the administrative court,” he said.Compliance with the decision, the minister said, did not only concern the annulment of an act but also the substance of a decision.To date, the supreme and administrative courts could only review a decision without examining the substance. The law would enable an authority to apply to court to see if the act is substantive and if so then it will be forced to decide or face sanctions.The minister said as far as he was concerned, the police fully complied with such decisions since March 2014, when the new chief took over.Auditor-general Odysseas Michaelides told MPs the bill for non-compliance was usually footed by taxpayers. As an example, he used the case of a worker at Paliometoho council whom the local authority refused to allow back to his work despite him being vindicated by the court. Instead, they forced him to take a paid leave of absence.
