By Kenneth JacksonAPTN National NewsA former supervisor at the Canadian National Railway says the law firm representing the railroad is trying to get him before a judge this week to “shut me up” for providing the Ontario Police Police with documents he claims show financial irregularities in the company.Lawyer Monique Jilesen of Lenczner Slaght has requested Scott Holmes be in court Friday for violating the deemed undertaking rule, meaning Holmes provided documents to a third party and allegedly wasn’t supposed to.Holmes has provided thousands of documents to OPP since February and during several meetings with detectives from the corruption section of the OPP’s anti-rackets unit.“They want to bring me in front of a judge and shut me up. They say I broke a rule by giving the OPP documents,” said Holmes.Holmes said he’s not concerned and doesn’t believe he violated any rule.Lenczner Slaght is representing CN Rail in the company’s civil suit against Holmes who they fired in 2008 on allegations of fraud. Holmes is countersuing them and CN police. It’s been going on for five years now without reaching trial.The documents Holmes gave to the OPP were from nearly 40,000 documents provided by the Crown as disclosure in CN’s failed pursuit to obtain a criminal conviction for fraud, twice. The charges were stayed by the Crown.APTN reported Tuesday that Holmes claims to have evidence to suggest CN billed GO Transit, a provincial transit company, for work CN never did.That sparked action by the province.Ontario Transport Minister Glen Murray said GO Transit and Metrolinx are taking the allegations “seriously” and are reviewing their books.“I understand they have a team of auditors looking into it. These are just allegations right now; nothing has been proven,” said Murray, in a statement sent to APTN National News. “Go Transit is doing its due diligence. I want to know the facts before I comment further.”Go Transit merged with Metrolinx in 2009.Metrolinx said in a statement it was investigating the allegations.“As soon as GO Transit heard about the allegations an audit was initiated as we consider the allegations serious. We will be able to respond more fully once we have more information in front of us,” said a Metrolinx spokesperson.CN said it adamantly denies any suggestion of impropriety in its management and involvements relating to GO rail projects.The OPP said in an emailed statement that the police force wouldn’t confirm or deny whether it has launched an investigation.“Generally, investigations involving possible corruption can be very sensitive due to the complexity and thoroughness required to ensure that the evidence is followed,” said Sgt. Pierre Chamberland in the email. “Because of the nature of these complaints, it may not be readily apparent what investigative actions are being pursued by police in order to effectively investigate and maintain the integrity and objectivity of the investigation.”CN said it wasn’t aware of any OPP investigation.“CN is not aware of any investigation by the Ontario Provincial Police into such allegations,” said spokesman Mark Hallman in an emailed statement Tuesday. “CN strongly rejects any suggestion of impropriety in its management of GO rail projects.”In its statement, CN said it employs strict accounting procedures and controls.“Mistakes, if any, are identified and corrected. As the work performed by CN on behalf of GO on a fixed-price basis with the work approved in advance and reviewed after completion, there was no risk of GO being overcharged due to any miscoding,” said Hallman.APTN’s story also raised allegations that CN was using partially worn material on GO projects to save cost. A GO source said they would have paid for new material.CN said it’s a common railway practice to use partially worn material it would be “transparent” with GO on email@example.com

In a press statement, Council President Wang Guangya, the Ambassador of China, commended the Haitian people for their participation in the second round of the parliamentary elections, held on Friday, and welcomed the “calm manner” in which voting took place.“These elections constitute clear evidence of the Haitian people’s commitment to democracy,” he said, voicing appreciation for the work of the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH).Reiterating the importance of timely municipal and local elections, the Council President stressed that security remains important for the further stabilization of the country. “While acknowledging that elections are a major step in Haiti’s political transition, the members of the Council recognize that addressing the country’s many long-term challenges will require close cooperation between the Haitian authorities and the international community,” he said.The UN helped organize the poll, together with February’s presidential vote, as part of its peacekeeping mission in the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Voters cast ballots at 804 voting centres to elect 27 senators and 83 deputies, according to MINUSTAH, which said that, consistent with expectations, participation was lower than the first round of elections, when René Préval was elected president.
In a press release issued from Geneva, Christof Heyns, the UN Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial executions, Benyam Mezmur, the Chairperson of the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, and Juan Mendez, the Special Rapporteur on torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, called on Pakistani authorities to reverse a decision regarding the execution of Shafqat Hussain, scheduled for 9 June. Mr. Hussein was arrested, tried and convicted at the age of 14 for kidnapping and involuntary manslaughter. According to his lawyers, however, Mr. Hussein’s confession was obtained after being tortured for at least nine days while in police custody. “To proceed with Mr. Hussain’s execution without proper investigation into the allegation that his confession was coerced under torture, and in spite of evidence that he was a child at the time of his alleged offence and of his possible innocence would be utterly unacceptable and in flagrant contravention of Pakistan’s national and international obligations,” the UN experts warned. “Under Pakistani law and articles 6 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and 37.1 the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the death sentence cannot be imposed on a defendant who was under 18 at the time of the crime,” they added. “Testimonies obtained under torture are also inadmissible.” Mr. Hussain was originally due to be executed in March 2015 but his sentence was stayed while authorities conducted an inquiry into his age at the time of the crime and on the torture allegations. The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) which led the investigation ultimately concluded that Mr. Hussain was not a child at the time of the killing however both the legitimacy of the inquiry and the initial trial has been contested. “In light of reports that the trial against Mr. Hussain and the FIA inquiry fell short of such standards, we call once again upon the Pakistani authorities to ensure a fair retrial of Shafqat Hussain, and to immediately halt the scheduled execution,” the three experts continued.In addition, they urged Pakistan’s Government to reinstate the country’s death penalty moratorium and carry out “serious investigations” all cases of children on death row. Since Pakistan’s moratorium was lifted in December 2014, 140 prisoners have been executed while reports indicate that more than 8,000 people are currently on death row of whom several hundred may have been sentenced for crimes they committed as children.

Borussia Dortmund youngster Jadon Sancho has thanked the club for the first team opportunities he has gotten since joining in the summer of 2017.The newly capped England international signed for Dortmund from Manchester City last year citing a lack of first-team opportunities with the Citizens for his decision to leave England.The teenager expressed his gratitude for being afforded “opportunities at such a young age” after helping Bundesliga league leaders Borussia Dortmund move three points clear with a 4-0 win over VfB Stuttgart.The 18-year-old has repaid the club’s faith by hitting the ground running in impressive fashion in the 2018/19 campaign. Despite making just two starts, Sancho has had a hand in eight goals in as many games in the Bundesliga this season.After opening the scoring in Saturday’s victory, the Manchester City academy product underlined what Dortmund opening the door to regular first-team football means to him.Report: Dortmund hammer four past Leverkusen George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund put four past Bayer Leverkusen.Borussia Dortmund leapfrogged Bayern Munich to claim second place in the Bundesliga. After handing out a 4-0 thrashing of…“Honestly, them giving me opportunities at such a young age, I just have to thank the club and all my family that have been behind me from the start,” Sancho told bundesliga.Playing regular first-team football is exactly why the rising star decided to blaze a trail by leaving Manchester City to join Dortmund at the age of 17.City boss, Pep Guardiola was convinced he had a bright future, but Sancho was desperate to demonstrate that he was ready to play more regularly rather than get stocked playing with the reserves.Lucien Favre’s Dortmund dared to do what City didn’t, and the teenage sensation is repaying their faith in droves.

Its license was restored on 29 June but the company quickly announced it would no longer run gaming operations on the second floor where the attack took place. As a result, RWM’s mass market table count fell from 169 tables to 96 and VIP table count from 145 to 113. Slot machine numbers also fell from 1,871 to 1,395.In a filing to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, Travellers International’s joint venture partner Genting HK said it had been informed that Travellers had experienced a significant decrease in revenue in 1Q18 “as a result of lesser gaming capacity” than during the same period in 2017. The fall comes “despite a reported 22.3% growth from the VIP segment.”The average number of casino tables and slot machines were 242 and 1,361 respectively compared to 311 and 1,771 for the same period last year.Gross revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2018 amounted to P5,461.5 million compared to P6,331.7 million for the same period in 2017.Gross revenue in 1Q18 fell 13.8% to Php5.5 billion (US$104.2 million) with EBITDA declining 40.9% to Php839.7 million compared to P1,420.3 million for the same period in 2017.Net profit came in at Php444 million.

Ethan Berkowitz formally became the new Mayor of Anchorage on Wednesday. The celebration downtown was a marked departure from past inaugurations, with a heavy emphasis on changing directions at City Hall.Download AudioMayor Ethan Berkowitz chatted with supporters while the Vinyl Floors played on stage ahead of the start to the formal ceremony. (Photo: Zachariah Hughes, KSKA)The whole afternoon was an informal affair, feeling at times closer to a block party than a government event. Supporters, local politicians, curious passersby – Town Square Park filled with hundreds of people while the Vinyl Floors, a folk-rock band from West High School, played on stage.West High band the Vinyl Floors played while Town Square Park filled with several hundred spectators. (Photo: Zachariah Hughes, KSKA)The ceremony itself was short and sweet. It was also diverse, something speakers as well as audience members noted. The event opened with a Dena’ina prayer, and eventually yielded to performances by the Alaska Native Heritage Center dancers and Underground Dance Company, a Hip-hop troup.Rhetoric throughout drew on language from community activism emphasizing Anchorage’s multiculturalism, as well as subtle nods towards progressive values. It’s the same tone Berkowitz used on the campaign trail, and throughout his transition into office the last two months.“We are, in many ways, liberated from the way things have been done before,” Berkowitz said said during his speech. “We have the responsibility, and the ability, to take care of things ourselves. It’s our time to make a new Anchorage.”The mayor’s office in Anchorage is technically nonpartisan. And while there were no overt jabs at the conservative outgoing Sullivan Administration, there was a decidedly liberal flavor to the festivities, with Downtown Democratic legislators smiling beside prominent community activists.As the ceremony was winding down, attendee David Landry said the event’s openness set a tone unlike any past inaugurations. “Just very excited to have a new generation of mayor in town,” Landry said. “And it’s about time.”The Alaska Native Heritage Center dancers performed after Berkowitz was sworn in, and were followed by the Hip-hop troupe Underground Dance Company. (Photo: Zachariah Hughes, KSKA)As for specifics in Berkowitz’s policy agenda, details are scant, but the focus remains on issues highlighted in his campaign.“(We’ve been) working on public safety issues, we’ve been working on economic development issues. And we’re also getting the early stages of preparing the next budget,” Berkowitz said during an in interview. “We’ve been hard at work–even before we moved into the office.”The remainder of the afternoon was for celebration, music, and a very long line for free cupcakes.
Rakhine StateThree people, including two teenage boys, were killed by an explosion in Myanmar’s restive Rakhine state on Saturday, a police officer said.Police were investigating if the mine had been laid intentionally or if the victims had accidentally struck unexploded ordnance leftover from a previous conflict, an officer told AFP.“According to our initial information, it was a homemade mine,” the officer said, requesting anonymity.“It exploded around 10:30am this morning in a field,” he said, adding that an elderly man and two boys aged 15 and 17 were killed by the blast.A 13-year-old boy was hospitalised with injuries.The north of Rakhine state is an impoverished area scarred by a brutal army crackdown on its Muslim Rohingya population.The campaign was launched in October in response to deadly raids staged by Rohingya militants, who say they are fighting for political rights for the stateless minority, which Myanmar has been accused of mistreating for years.The army crackdown has displaced more than 92,000 Rohingya.The majority fled across the border to Bangladesh, where many gave harrowing accounts of security officers slaughtering babies, burning people alive and staging gang rapes.The UN has ordered an investigation into the alleged army abuses, saying they may amount to crimes against humanity.But Myanmar has vowed to block visas for the UN fact-finding team, with de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi warning that their probe would inflame tensions in the region.Suu Kyi, a Nobel peace prize winner, has faced global censure for not taking a stronger stance on the Rohingya’s plight since coming to power last year.
Christopher Connelly/KERAKristan Kerr was released from prison in October 2018, after more than eight years in prison. Her daughter was only 3 years old when she went to prison.For the eight-and-a-half years she spent in prison, Kristan Kerr looked forward to one thing every month: a visit from her daughter, Chloe. Visit by visit, she watched Chloe grow from a toddler to nearly a teenager.“I just watched her grow all the way up,” Kerr says. “One visit, she couldn’t read, and then the next visit she was reading something to me.”Convicted for aggravated robbery in 2011 – she was the driver — Kerr says she wasn’t making good choices back then, and it meant missing out on a lot.She and Chloe would talk on the phone and send letters and visit, but she says you can’t do the physical, nurturing part of parenting from prison. Even though Kerr trusted that Chloe was being cared for by her grandmother, she says you never stop worrying about your kid.There are more than 225,000 women behind bars, according to the most recent 2017 federal statistics. Half are in state and federal prisons, the other half in local jails. It’s actually a slight decrease, coming after years of ballooning incarceration among women.From 1980 to 2016, the country saw a 700% increase in the number of women behind bars. Exactly how many are mothers isn’t well tracked, but a survey of women in Texas prisons showed more than 80% of them are moms.Lawmakers across the country are now considering ways to send fewer moms with minor children to jail and prison, and to help preserve parent-child bonds when they’re locked up.In Texas, lawmakers are considering bills that would promote diversion programs, probation or other community-based sentences over jail or prison time to avoid breaking up families. Tennessee recently passed legislation to do that.Christopher Connelly/KERAKristan Kerr says she watched her daughter grow up while she was in prison. “Every visit, I’d say you’re getting big, you’ve grown,” Kerr says. “I just watched her grow all the way up.”There were some tough times for Chloe, who’s now 12. It was hard seeing other kids with their moms, but she says it’s been good since her mother was released in October. Not that it’s been easy, exactly.“It’s been a little bit challenging because I’ve still got to get used to her, I’ve got to learn her, get comfortable with her,” Chloe says. But, she adds, “I’m happier now that she’s here, that I get to see her every day.”“Many of the women, once they get arrested, are scrambling to find someone to take care of their kids,” says Michele Deitch, who studies prison issues at the University of Texas at Austin. “So a lot of kids get shuttled from place to place, and if they’re not able to find a place for them, then many of the kids end up in foster care.”Other states are looking at incarcerating parents closer to their children, and expanding visitation so kids can see mom or dad more often. Incarcerated parents who have stronger relationships with their kids, Deitch says, behave better while inside, and are less likely to commit future crimes after they’re released.“It’s really critical for the parent to not lose touch with their child, and to stay involved and to feel like they can make a difference in the child’s life to be aware of what’s happening to them,” Deitch says.Growing up with their incarcerated parents can be damaging to their children. That’s part of the reason children with incarcerated parents are more likely to end up in the criminal justice system themselves, according to Dallas lawyer Brittany Barnett. She launched Girls Embracing Mothers, a nonprofit aimed at improving outcomes for girls and their incarcerated mothers, after her own mother was sent to prison.“Even though I was a young adult when my mom went to prison, my sister and I were devastated by her incarceration,” Barnett says. “It not only impacts the person in prison, but the children are the hidden victims of their parents’ crimes.”Kristan and Chloe Kerr took part in the Girls Embracing Mothers program. Barnett says she’s optimistic about reform legislation, but hopes it’s just a first step toward a more effective and less punitive justice system.“These women aren’t bad women, they made bad choices,” Barnett says.Texas Rep. James White, a Republican, says the crimes women commit are often different from their male peers. He heads the House Committee on Corrections, and introduced a bill to address issues faced by women in prison, including pregnancy and childbirth.“I hear a lot of offenses that are linked to domestic violence, so they may stab their spouse that’s abusing them and their kids,” White says, “young women that have experienced repeated sexual abuse from a family member, women who have fallen into the trap of addiction.”Researchers agree that a history of trauma underlies a lot of the criminal behavior that lands women in jails and prisons. Kristan Kerr says many of the moms in prison with her struggled with psychological and behavioral issues.“Women, they love their kids,” she says. “Maybe they’re stuck with addiction but that’s a sickness, but that doesn’t mean they don’t want their children.”Since she’s been out, Kerr has been working through a list of goals she set for herself to rebuild her life. She’s got a job, got her driver’s license, and she’s spending lots of time with her daughter.Copyright 2019 KERA. To see more, visit KERA. Share

New Year’s resolution: don’t spend another year in a kitchen you don’t like Sponsored Stories Hollande noted that during his recent meeting with Thailand’s Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, the two discussed a “joint venture” to promote a hybrid French and Thai cuisine.“I consider gastronomy not just part of the art of living, of diplomacy but also a veritable economic motor,” said Hollande.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) What could be the world’s most exclusive gastronomic association, the Club des Chefs des Chefs _ a club of chefs for political leaders _ brings these gastronomic masters together each year in a different country. The elite club has been in Paris since Sunday, after a five-day visit to Berlin that included a meeting with Chancellor Angela Merkel.Their reception by European leaders underscores that diplomacy is one part negotiations and one part the delicious sauces cooked up in their chefs’ kitchens. Hollande and Merkel have bumped heads over the European financial crisis _ and whether to sweeten the austerity pot with growth incentives.“He gave a very nice speech on the role of gastronomy in diplomacy,” said the club’s president, Christian Garcia, the chef to Prince Albert II of Monaco. “He said that when our cuisine is top quality, he can dare to hope that accords, discussions are positive.”Donning impeccable white toques and white aprons, the chefs toured the kitchen of the Elysee Palace.“There are copper pots that date to 1845,” some from the Chateau of Fontainebleau, Garcia said. “It was truly moving.”Among those present were White House Chef Cristeta Comerford, the chef to Queen Elizabeth II of England, Mark Flanagan, and Hilton Little, chef to South African presidents, including Nelson Mandela. Arizona families, Arizona farms: working to produce high-quality milk Bernard Vaussion, the Elysee Palace chef who has fed six French presidents, was the host for the Paris visit. Colleague Ulrich Kerz, who cooks for Merkel, led the group during their visit to Germany.“It’s already difficult to bring together heads of state, but (to bring together) chefs who cook during those times …,” Hollande said admiringly as he surveyed the gathering of tall white hats.The elite chefs’ club was created in 1977 by Gilles Bragard, a businessman who created the outfits worn by international chefs, and had its beginnings at the French gastronomic temple in Collonges au Mont d’Or, outside Lyon, where the celebrated chef Paul Bocuse now reigns.Earlier Tuesday, the chefs dined on langoustine and lamb from the Correze region of central France, where Hollande served for years as mayor. That meal, topped with wild strawberries and mascarpone sorbet, was served at the Jules Vernes restaurant in the Eiffel Tower, prepared by another famed chef, Alain Ducasse.Ducasse, with restaurants around the world, epitomizes what the French president said was another attribute of top chefs: their role in promoting the products of their nations around the world.

But French President Francois Hollande contends that the chefs who cook for the leaders of the world have a behind-the-scenes role at the negotiating tables of international diplomacy.“If your dish is a miss, it’s more difficult to plead a cause,” Hollande told nearly 20 chefs on a visit Tuesday to the presidential Elysee Palace.

Three firefighters were slightly injured trying to extinguish the blaze.Fires were also raging Monday in another part of Crete, on the resort island of Rhodes _ where five firefighters required treatment for heatstroke _ and in northwestern Greece.

Americans with money to set aside that they do not plan on using for the next 10 years would rather invest in real estate than any other type of investment, according to a recent national survey from Bankrate.According to Bankrate’s latest Financial Security Index poll, exactly one-quarter of Americans surveyed said they would rather invest in real estate with money they would not need for the next 10 years, beating out cash investments such as CDs and savings (23 percent) and the stock market and gold or precious metals (16 percent each). Bonds were the least popular investment option for money not needed over the next decade, with 5 percent of respondents preferring that choice.Real estate investments were king in the survey, with 25 percent of survey respondents saying they would choose real estate as a long-term investment. Those with higher incomes (an annual salary of $75K or more) were more inclined to choose real estate as their favored long-term investment (33 percent) compared to those with annual salaries of between $50K and $74K (23 percent), according to Bankrate. Older millennials (age 26 to 35) showed had the same tendency as the older age groups to want to invest in real estate long-term (28 percent).“Real estate has some notable advantages over other popular investments,” Roofstock CEO Gary Beasley said. “Yields are much higher than the anemic rates paid by certificates of deposit and investment grade bonds, gold has no current yield and is entirely an appreciation or store of value play, and stocks are increasingly volatile. Investment in rental housing is particularly interesting today given discounts to peak housing values and being able to capitalize on the macro trend of ‘rentership’ vs. home ownership.”Noel Christopher, Renters Warehouse’s National Business Development Lead, added: “A big deterrent for investors in the past was that they were unable to invest in multiple markets and have the peace of mind that their investment was protected. With the rise of professional landlords, small investors can now take advantage of economies of scale and institutional-level best practices to manage single family homes. This wasn’t possible until now, and it’s changing the way investors look at the market.”According to Bankrate, many favor real estate investments over the other ways to invest because of the volatility and uncertainty of the stock market—and it is a tangible investment, as opposed to stocks. Real estate investments do have their downside, however; there is the cost of maintaining the house, plus the homeowner cannot put the asset in an account and forget about it the way they can with stocks or bonds, according to Bankrate.The poll showed that many Americans are not willing to invest in the bullish stock market. A survey from Bankrate conducted in 2013, relatively early in the bull market started in 2009 found that 14 percent of Americans prefer to invest in the stock market, and that share has increased by just 2 percentage points in the last three years.Americans are increasingly upbeat about their prospects for financial security, however. The poll found that for the 26th consecutive month, Americans’ sense of financial well-being improved when taking into account debt, savings, net worth, job security, and overall financial situation. Bankrate’s Chief Financial Analyst, Greg McBride, pointed out that Americans’ overall perceptions of their financial prospects improved even though their feelings of job security dropped off slightly—despite a strong jobs report for June from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (287,000 jobs added during the month). in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, News Real Estate Investments 2016-07-20 Seth Welborn July 20, 2016 672 Views Americans Favor Real Estate as a Long-Term Investment Share
