Prime Minister Trudeau meets with Pope Francis at Vatican

first_img(Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at the Vatican waiting to meet with Pope Francis Monday. Photo: Alessandra Tarantino/Associated Press)The Canadian PressVATICAN CITY – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has had a private visit with Pope Francis at the Vatican.It’s unclear what was said in the meeting, which lasted more than 30 minutes, but Trudeau was expected to discuss reconciliation with Indigenous peoples, religious diversity, and climate change.The prime minister has given the Pope a rare set of Jesuit Relations books, which have become an important source detailing the beginnings of Canada.Trudeau also presented Pope Francis with a Montagnais-French dictionary written by a French Jesuit in the 17th century.In return, the Pope gave the prime minister a gold medal marking the fourth year of his pontificate, an autographed copy of his message for World Peace Day and three papal letters about family, environment and evangelism.Trudeau was expected to ask the pontiff to issue a formal apology in Canada for the role of the Catholic Church in the residential school system.The Truth and Reconciliation Commission included the demand for a papal apology _ to survivors, their families and communities _ among the 94 recommendations in its report on the dark history and legacy of residential schools.The Liberal government has promised to act on all of them.Trudeau, who is religious, is also expected to discuss the Catholic community in Canada.Former prime minister Stephen Harper, who issued a residential schools apology on behalf of the Canadian government in 2008, did not raise the issue directly during a 10-minute audience with Pope Francis two years ago. Harper did mention the report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.In 2009, the previous pope, Benedict XVI, did express “sorrow” on behalf of the Catholic Church for the “deplorable conduct” by some members of the church in their treatment of Indigenous children in residential schools.The Truth and Reconciliation Commission report said this did not go far enough, especially since it was not made in public.news@aptn.calast_img read more

EU to Back Morocco’s Immigration Policy

Brussels – The EU intends to back substantially the new Moroccan immigration and asylum policy which has clear goals and provides for concrete actions, mainly in terms of immigrant integration and the recognition of refugee status.In its final statement following the 12th session of the Morocco-EU Association Council, on Tuesday in Brussels, the Union voiced its will to assist Morocco in carrying out this policy given that the Kingdom is the first north African country to adopt a real immigration policy, including the creation of an office for refugees and the setting up of a system to fight human trafficking.On the global turndown, the EU member states underlined Morocco’s strong economical resilience. “The good performance of the Moroccan economy over the past years could be explained by the cautious management of public finances and the implementation of government program on structural reforms,” wrote the statement. The EU noted, however, the persistence of some challenges as the continuation of fiscal consolidation which seems to be on the right track and the reinforcement of competitiveness to attract foreign investments.Referring to the fight against terrorism, the EU called for further developing cooperation between Morocco and the Sahel-Saharan region in order to efficiently combat terrorist networks.The EU deemed that north Africa represents a priority zone in the fight against terrorism, lauding Morocco’s efforts in terms of preventing violent radicalism and extremism. read more

Moroccan Ministers Provided With Armored Vehicles Over Terrorist Threats

Rabat – Mohammed VI has reportedly put armored vehicles at the disposal of members of the government and the country’s senior officials following the threats issued by terrorist groups to assassinate many Moroccan politicians and public figures.According to Akhbar Al Yaoum daily newspaper on its April 1st issue, King Mohammed VI has granted three armored vehicles to three ministers, namely head of government, Abdelilah Benkirane, Interior Minister, Mohamed Hassad and Minister of Justice and Freedoms, Mustapha Ramid.Mustapha Ramid is currently under strict security surveillance following death threats he received from an extremist group who called on him “to repent if he wants to live.” Other ministers were also provided with bodyguards and extra security around their residences after receiving threats from terrorist organizations.The same source said that the vehicles are similar to moving fortresses impenetrable by bullets and bombs. They are manufactured by German automobile manufacturer BMW and have 4.4 liter, 450 horsepower turbocharged V8 engines.The vehicles have bulletproof technology used in the windows and can resist attacks from different types of weapons, the daily newspaper added.A terrorist cell recently dismantled by the Central Bureau of Judicial Investigation (BCIJ), an offshoot of Morocco’s domestic intelligence agency (DGST), planned to carry out a string of assassinations in a nationwide operation.BCIJ chief, Abdel Haq Al-Khyam, said the terrorist cell was attempting to kill several Moroccan civil, political and military figures.Members of the dismantled network had pledged allegiance to the Islamic State and vowed to target Moroccan security forces and send recruits to fight in Syria and Iraq, BCIJ said.BCIJ officers seized over 13 automatic weapons and more than 400 bullets, as well as a large amount of ammunition “to be used “to assassinate their targets”, Al-Khyam specified. read more

Mediapart lance FrenchLeaks un site inspiré de WikiLeaks

first_imgMediapart lance FrenchLeaks, un site inspiré de WikiLeaksLe pure-player français Mediapart a lancé aujourd’hui le site Internet FrenchLeaks (lien non disponible), une sorte de WikiLeaks à la française, visant à diffuser des documents d’intérêt public. L’objectif de FrenchLeaks est de mettre “à disposition du public les documents ayant servi aux enquêtes de Mediapart sur, par exemple, l’affaire Bettencourt ou l’affaire Karachi, et invite aussi les citoyens à transmettre des informations”, a indiqué Edwy Plenel, le directeur de la publication, à l’occasion d’une conférence de presse donnée ce matin à Paris. Il s’agit ainsi d’une base documentaire, grandement inspirée du site controversé WikiLeaks, même si FrenchLeaks s’intéresse plus à la France et à l’Europe.  “Tout ce qui est d’intérêt public mérite d’animer le débat public”, a dit Edwy Plenel.L’ancien directeur de la rédaction du Monde a ajouté : “Notre site protège l’anonymat et la sécurité des sources et permet ainsi de poster des documents qui seront ensuite avisés par la rédaction et publiés s’ils sont pertinents”. “N’importe qui ne pourra pas poster n’importe quoi”, a souligné François Bonnet, le directeur éditorial.Ces documents, librement accessibles, seront tous téléchargeables et reproductibles. En revanche, les enquêtes journalistiques associées à chaque dossier seront publiées sur le site Mediapart, lui, entièrement payant.Pour le moment, FrenchLeaks donne accès aux enregistrements pirates des conversations entre Liliane Bettencourt, héritière de L’Oréal, et ses conseillers, ou au rapport de l’Autorité des marchés financiers sur EADS.Mediapart, qui souffle ses trois bougies aujourd’hui, enregistre environ 48.000 abonnés payants.

The Ultimate Super Smash Bros Character Guide Villager

first_img ‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ Was Final Mission From Late Nintendo President‘Undertale’s’ Sans Is Basically a Brand New ‘Sma… Villager Comes To Town!Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is huge. Not just in terms of hype and importance and sales potential, but just in terms of sheer stuff. The Nintendo Switch mascot fighter features over a hundred stages, nearly a thousand songs, and too many Pokemon and items and Assist Trophies to think of crammed onto a cartridge you can plan on the go or on a TV. When you have as many big franchises as Nintendo, putting them all in one game will make that game is very big boy indeed.But the biggest, most exciting thing about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is its mind-blowing, heartwarming roster of playable characters. Fighting games pride themselves not just on the strength of their mechanics but the strength of its fighters, especially in a crossover fighters like this. And Super Smash Bros. Ultimate crushes all rivals by including every single playable character from the across the four previous games in the twenty-year-old series. Include the new combatants and so far we have over 70 fighters to wrap our heads around. We’re excited, but we’re also intimidated. So to get ready for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, every day, character by character, we’re creating the ultimate guide to all of its characters. Today’s fighter: Villager. Stay on targetcenter_img Who Are They?Villager is you! Specifically, Villager is the one human you play as when you move to a town of beasts in Animal Crossing. It may seem odd turning what’s basically a generic player avatar, a Sim or a Mii, into a character in their own right. But Animal Crossing Villagers have a recognizable look all of their own. Forget becoming the Mayor, it was a big deal when these characters could wear pants.Smash HistoryThe very first trailer for Smash Wii U/3DS opens with a typical Animal Crossing town and a Villager checking his mail. But instead of getting a letter dragging his furniture choices, there’s an invitation with the Smash logo on it. The trailer continues, showing off returning veterans as well as 3DS vs. Wii U visuals, before Villager comes to town as the first newcomer, capturing Mario in a net with an evil twinkling blank eye.What Looks New in Ultimate?For some delightful reason, all of the Animal Crossing characters are about setting up traps and generally messing with opponents. Villagers can launch rockets, chop down trees, drop bowling balls, shoot slingshots, ride on balloons, and capture enemy projectiles which now show up near your damage meter. In Ultimate Villager can even punch you forever and always spike you with turnips. The most important change though isn’t an altered move but altered costumes. Animal Crossing has always struggled with darker skin tones but now you can play as noticeably nonwhite Villagers.Our Hopes?With so many incredible characters in Animal Crossing to choose from, picking a generic Villagers in Smash Wii U/3DS was kind of a disappointment. Ultimate fixes this somewhat by introducing famous good girl Isabelle, who has many of the same moves that make Villager so potent. But whenever Villager summons Tom Nook for his Final Smash, we just wonder what could’ve been if that evil capitalist raccoon ever found his way into Smash instead.Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is available now. Read our review of this majestic video game pageant.

Goodyears Golden Sahara II is the future restored in Geneva

first_img Tags More From Roadshow See All Comment Mar 7 • New Peugeot 208 debuts i-Cockpit with 3D HUD Combo dashboard Mar 7 • The Ferrari F8 Tributo is the last of the nonhybrid V8s reading • Goodyear’s Golden Sahara II is the future restored in Geneva 1 39 Photos • More than any other auto show on the international circuit, you just never know what you’re going to see at the Geneva Motor Show. Take this unusual Goodyear tire company premiere, for example. This is the Golden Sahara II, a freshly restored show car that claims to be one of the world’s first autonomous car concepts. Born in the 1950s, this golden vision was a joint project between Goodyear and famed Hollywood car customizer George Barris. Based on a 1953 Lincoln Capri hardtop, this one-off Jet Age show car, commissioned by Ohioan Jim Street, has been the subject of an intensive restoration effort ahead of its debut here in Switzerland.Get past the car’s outrageous Barris bodywork and focus on the period future tech: the Golden Sahara II employs an “aircraft-inspired control lever for acceleration, braking and steering,” and it featured a sensor-based automatic braking system that relied on antenna to spot objects in front of the car. The original car, which debuted in 1954, even featured a kind of voice control, as well as remote-control doors and engine start.

Dubbed Neothane, the material allows for internal lighting. At the time, the company was investigating whether tires could be illuminated when a vehicle was under braking or in bad weather for improved visibility. Another novel wheel-based feature? Crystal hubcaps that feature built-in turn signals. The Golden Sahara II was put on tour nationwide as a vision of the future, including numerous appearances on TV and in film. It was then left to sit in a garage for nearly 50 years. The car was subsequently purchased at a Mecum Auctions event in May of last year by Klairmont Kollections — for $350,000. This show car cost the then-outrageous sum of $75,000 to be built, but we’re guessing the just-completed restoration ended up costing much, much more. As a time capsule of unbridled atomic-age optimism and as a predictor of future safety tech that’s only just now coming into reality, the Golden Sahara II has few equals.

275m settlement in US church child sex abuse case

first_imgInside of a churchThe Catholic church in New York has reached a record $27.5 million settlement with four men who said they were sexually abused as children, attorneys said Tuesday.The Diocese of Brooklyn, one of the city’s boroughs, agreed to make the payments to the four, who were sexually abused between 2003 and 2009 by their religion teacher, their lawyers said.The sum breaks down to $6.87 million for each of the victims, who were between the ages of eight and 12 at the time.”This is the largest settlement ever involving individual victims,” said attorney Ben Rubinowitz.”We are glad to see the church finally being brought to justice. It continued for months and in certain cases for years.”Church officials did not immediately comment. But the settlement ends the civil complaint of the four victims, which was to lead to a trial in early 2019, said Rubinowitz.The complaint was filed in 2012. It came after religion teacher Angelo Serrano — now 67 years old — was arrested in 2009 for molesting a child, for which he pleaded guilty in 2011 and was sentenced to fifteen years in prison.According to Rubinowitz, the diocese agreed to pay after trying to distance itself from Serrano, who was employed by the little parish of St Lucy-St Patrick, but not a priest.A church priest, also targeted by the complaint, admitted to having seen Serrano one day kiss a child on the mouth, but never addressed the abuse, said another of the lawyers Peter Saghir.”They decided that, rather than risk a trial, that it was time for them to make a payment.”According to the website BishopAccountability.org, the previous record for an individual compensation was $3.4 million and was paid to the two victims of Matthew Maiello of New York.News of the settlement came as several US states, worried by a report in August detailing decades of sexual abuse involving more than 300 Catholic priests in Pennsylvania, are looking into historic abuse cases in their own jurisdictions.The Church was also rocked by the resignation in July of US Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, an influential ex-bishop of Washington.He was accused of sexually abusing a teenager while working as a priest in New York in the early 1970s.last_img read more

The Sick Tired Rally in Annapolis over Law Enforcement Reform

first_imgA demonstrator holds up a sign during a rally at the Thurgood Marshall memorial in Annapolis on July 23. Advocates and residents had come to Annapolis that day to press for law enforcement reforms in Maryland. (Photo by Roberto Alejandro)“I have to be honest and say I’m not pleased to be here. I’m tired of being here. I’m tired of coming down here,” said Rev. Dr. Heber Brown at a recent law enforcement reform rally in Annapolis.Advocates and residents had gathered at the Thurgood Marshall memorial in the state’s capital once again to demand that lawmakers in Annapolis pass meaningful reforms that would ensure police accountability to communities around the state, and especially to communities of color. Speaking at a rally before a town hall hearing on law enforcement issues scheduled by the Maryland General Assembly Public Safety and Policing Workgroup—which is reviewing the state’s law enforcement policies in the aftermath of Baltimore’s unrest over the death of Freddie Gray—on July 23rd, Brown expressed the sentiment many were feeling that day who had repeated this exercise so many times during the previous legislative session.“Fannie Lou Hamer said years ago, ‘I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired,’ and I have to confess today that I am where Fannie Lou Hamer was. I am tired of coming down to Annapolis, trying to convince lawmakers to do what is right by the citizens of the state of Maryland,” added Brown later.The phrase ‘dog and pony show’ was among the most common ways advocates and residents present for the town hall described the day’s events. And while Del. Curt Anderson (D-Baltimore City), one of the co-chairs of the workgroup, assured those assembled at the start of the meeting that “we understand that a problem exists,” some who testified before the workgroup wondered why such a town hall was necessary if that was truly the case.“I’m glad for the opportunity to be able to have this conversation,” said Rev. S. Todd Yeary, political action co-chair for the MD NAACP, “though I must say up front that the state conference is a bit concerned that we’re having to have this conversation at all. There’s been a significant deterioration in the confidence of the citizens in the ability of law enforcement to not only protect property and life, but to protect their constitutional rights.”Tawanda Jones, the sister of Tyrone West, the Baltimore man who was killed by police while being taken into custody in July 2013, addressed the need to once again tell the story of her brother’s death at an Annapolis hearing.“This is the foolishness and the heartbreak that our families go through at the end of the day, when the timer goes off, and y’all go back to be with your families, we’re stuck with this hurt and pain, and all we’re asking for is accountability and transparency, and holding these people accountable to the fullest extent of the law,” added Jones later.Marion Gray-Hopkins, who lost her son to police violence in1999, and who led the rally before the start of the town hall, also spoke of the pain suffered by families of police brutality victims.“I wouldn’t want anyone to have to go through what I’m going through and the pain that I feel every morning that I wake up, so I fight for change and will do so until change comes,” said GrayHopkins.But whether change will come is exactly the question animating the frustration of many advocates of law enforcement reform, and both Brown and Jones attacked the make-up of the workgroup for failing to include Del. Jill Carter (D-Baltimore City), viewed by many as the premiere champion of law enforcement reform issues in the state, and certainly in Baltimore. Brown also highlighted the fact that a number of workgroup members were often hostile to the idea of reform during the last legislative session.While he did not name any legislators specifically, the workgroup includes lawmakers like Sen. Bobby Zirkin (D-Baltimore County), Sen. Wayne Norman (R-Harford and Cecil Counties) and Del. William Folden (R-Frederick County), all of whom expressed resistance to various law enforcement reform measures over the course of the previous legislative session, which ended April 13th, the day after Freddie Gray sustained the injuries at the hands of police that resulted in his death on April 19th.This resistance has also informed the exasperation of many who have fought for change where police reform is concerned, a sentiment Brown spoke to at the rally when he said, “Listen, they better get it right this time. You better get it right this time. . . . [Gov. Larry] Hogan, [Senate President Mike] Miller, and [House Speaker Michael] Busch, these three white men should not be setting the timetable as to when Black and brown people will get justice. They should not be in the position to set the timetable as to when we will get justice. We’re here today to say listen, time is real short.”last_img read more

Do Not Disturb This Indicator Light Tells CoWorkers When You Can and

first_img Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Classic open-office employee conundrum: You’re at your desk, but you’re in a rut. Finally, the muse strikes. You hit your stride. You’re cranking out your work like nobody’s business. Then, out of the blue, a co-worker meanders over and fills your ear about this, that and the other thing. Or about last night’s insane Portlandia episode. Or whatever. And now, you have completely lost your focus.What if you could stop annoying workplace interruptions like these before they start? With a nifty Luxafor LED workplace indicator light stuck to your laptop or computer screen, you could.Related: The 4 Biggest Productivity Killers in Your OfficeLuxafor’s clever light, which connects to your computer via USB or Bluetooth, communicates to your co-workers when it’s okay to talk to you and when it’s not. Kind of like a traffic stoplight, the little, rectangular plastic unit shines green when you’re all ears and red when you’re not.Its makers, Draugiem Group, a Latvian tech-design startup, say Luxafor can also be programmed to notify you of emails, product orders, calendar reminders and the like. You can work it manually on your own, or set it to change colors automatically by pairing it with a Luxafor partner productivity app.  Related: Cubicles Were Originally Designed to Set Us Free, Now They’re Slowly Killing UsAs you might’ve guessed, Luxafor was invented by open-office workers who were fed up with productivity-undermining interruptions from colleagues. And their beef isn’t really that petty, not when you consider that the average worker requires a whopping 23 minutes or so to get back into the swing of things following an interruption.  The light, on Kickstarter now with 26 days to go, isn’t a particularly fancy or socially elegant solution, but it sure beats asking your co-workers to talk to the hand or flipping them the bird, like a really busy guy seems to do in Luxafor’s cheeky Kickstarter video. Check it out below, then hurry up and get back to work. You don’t want your co-workers thinking you have a minute to shoot the breeze (or to preorder your very own Luxafor for $21, plus $5 shipping).Related: 5 Ways to Promote Yourself at Work Without Bragging January 17, 2015 Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Globalcenter_img 2 min read Register Now »last_img read more

first_imgAdd Path Copy options to Windows Explorer by Martin Brinkmann on October 30, 2018 in Software – 7 commentsPath Copy Copy is a free open source program for Windows that adds new context menu options to Windows Explorer and File Explorer to copy file or folder paths in different ways.While it is easy enough to copy the full path or a part of the path of the active folder in Windows Explorer, the same can’t be said for copying the path of individual files.Some users help themselves by copying the path of the folder before they append the file name to the folder path manually; may work if you do this once in a year but if you need the path regularly, you might prefer a solution that is quicker and more elegant.Experienced users may know that it is possible to hold down the Shift-key before the right-click to display the copy as path option that is hidden by default.Path Copy CopyPath Copy Copy needs to be installed on the Windows system. The installer displays three presets to the user which add a certain number of copy options to the context menu by default. Any choice is fine at this point as you may change everything later on as well.The new context menu option becomes available right away in Windows Explorer. Just right-click on any file or folder and select the new Path Copy option to make use of it. You may notice that the option to copy the long path of the selected file or folder is available in the main Explorer right-click menu. All other options are by default located under Path Copy in the menu.Options include copying short or long paths or names, or copying UNC, Unix, Cygwin or Internet paths. Select any of the copy options to copy the selection to the Windows Clipboard.You may not need all the copy options listed in the context menu or may miss some of them as the initial selection depends on the selected preset during installation.Select the Settings option from the menu to open the program preferences. The first tab lists all available copy options and whether an option is hidden, displayed in the main menu, or displayed in the Copy Path context menu.You may hide any copy option from the main Windows Explorer menu or the submenu, and also reorder options and separators as you see fit.If you need one or two options, you could consider moving them to the main Explorer menu for faster access.The options tab lists a number of preferences including an option to hide the entire submenu. Other options provided include adding quotes to copied paths automatically, placing paths in <> brackets, or encoding whitespace using percent encoding.Closing Words and verdictPath Copy Copy is a useful tool for Windows administrators and users who copy path information regularly. Users can configure the options that they want and their placement in the context menu which makes Path Copy Copy a flexible solution.Now you: Do you copy paths sometimes or even regularly?Summary12345 Author Rating5 based on 4 votes Software Name Path Copy CopyOperating System WindowsSoftware Category AdministrationLanding Page https://pathcopycopy.github.io/ Advertisementlast_img read more

KPN sinks to Q3 loss following big oneoff charge

first_img Comments   Share   AMSTERDAM (AP) – Royal KPN NV, the Dutch telecommunications company that rejected a takeover bid by Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim this month, reported a large loss for the third quarter, citing weak business conditions, high investment costs, and an accounting charge.The net loss of 241 million euros ($329 million) compares with a profit of 267 million euros in the same period a year ago.KPN said Tuesday the loss was largely due to charges related to the proposed sale of KPN’s German unit E-Plus to Spain’s Telefonica SA for 8.55 billion euros. KPN took a net charge of 328 million euros on E-Plus after classifying it as a discontinued business, though it noted it will reap tax benefits from the sale for years to come. It expects the deal to close in mid-2014, pending approval from European regulators. Operating profit, which excludes one-time charges as well as interest and tax, fell 38 percent to 281 million euros. KPN attributed that to weak demand from business customers and falling profits from mobile customers with smartphones. They have been switching KPN’s SMS service for cheaper mobile Internet messaging services such as WhatsApp.CEO Eelco Blok said better times lie ahead, one of the reasons he opposed Slim’s 2.40 euro per share offer.“Investments have been high, but we now have completed a large part of our 4G (high-speed mobile Internet) network rollout, and coverage should be nationwide by the end of the first quarter,” he said on a conference call.“Financial results will improve in the course of 2014.”Following the results, KPN’s share price in Amsterdam was up 1.7 percent at 2.27 euros. Many analysts believe Slim is waiting for the E-Plus sale to close and to see how the company performs before launching a new bid. He continues to hold a stake of just under 30 percent stake in KPN via his flagship company America Movil.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
