Day Programs for Youth with Disabilities

first_imgGovernment is boosting support for day programs for youth with disabilities. The Disability Support Program is inviting established service providers to apply for grants to develop new day programs and services for youth with disabilities aged 16-24. “Whether they’re interested in volunteering, recreation, or skill-building for future employment, we want youth with disabilities to have more opportunities to meet their goals within their communities,” said Minister of Community Services Kelly Regan. “We encourage service providers to engage with youth and their families to make their great ideas reality.” $600,000 is now available to adult service centres, residential providers and other community service providers that currently operate a day program or have indicated a desire to support youth with disabilities. Community Services will work with families of youth with disabilities to evaluate the applications and select the successful projects. There is no limit on the application amount, but applicants should discuss proposals of more than $50,000 with staff at the Department of Community Services. The application period is open until 4 p.m. on Feb. 28. Service providers interested in applying can contact the Disability Support Program at YDPapplications@novascotia.ca.

Thursday’s workshop was aimed to apprise the residents and industries to ensure segregation of waste at their source. The authority has invited all the bulk generators (those who are generating waste over 100 kg per day) and RWAs of various residential societies. Ritu Maheshwari, CEO, Noida authority said that the residents of Noida have a huge potential to develop and promote their city to a single figure in the next swachch Bharat rankings.

WestJet vote 62 per cent in favour of forming first union at

first_imgCALGARY – The Air Line Pilots Association, International says more than 1,400 WestJet pilots have voted 62 per cent in favour of forming the first union at Canada’s second-largest airline.The vote makes the ALPA, which bills itself as the world’s largest pilot union representing 55,000 pilots, the exclusive bargaining agent for WestJet pilots.“We look forward to putting ALPA’s vast resources to work to help the WestJet pilots reach their first contract,” said Dan Adamus, president of ALPA Canada, in a statement.WestJet chief executive Gregg Saretsky said that the airline (TSX:WJA) is disappointed with the outcome of the vote, but will now focus on engaging in constructive dialogue with the ALPA.The company, which has long prided itself on being union-free and considers it a competitive advantage, saw its share price drop 4.2 per cent to close at $21.98.Rob McFadyen, a member of the WestJet ALPA Organizing Committee, stated that the vote was about ensuring support in issues like health, retirement, fatigue, safety, family support and legal protection.Jason Foster, a labour relations expert at Athabasca University, said Friday’s result shows a clear change of atmosphere among the pilots at WestJet from 2015, when only 45 per cent of pilots voted for unionization.“This is a significant statement,” said Foster. “It’s an indication how workers in the airline industry are reacting to the turmoil and constant change that we’re seeing in the industry these days.”He said WestJet’s move both into the ultra-low cost carrier segment, as well as trying to take on Air Canada’s international luxury travel as it responds to competition, has likely put a strain on relations.Foster said while the union certification is a big step, there’s still a lot of work ahead for the pilots.“Now they’re going to have to sit down and negotiate a collective agreement with WestJet, and that won’t necessarily be pretty. I imagine that WestJet will come to the table driving very hard.”Karl Moore, a management expert at McGill University and former airline consultant, said that unionization was likely the result of significant growth from WestJet’s humble beginnings 21 years ago, with it now counting more than 12,000 employees.“It’s lost that kind of feisty upstart David and Goliath feeling,” said Moore.He said relations with employees, which WestJet has referred to as co-owners of the airline, could become more strained under a union.“With a union you at times become more at loggerheads as opposed to partners working together to have great success,” said Moore.He also expects to see more union drives as a result of the pilot’s successful drive.“Once the pilots are, certainly the flight attendants and mechanics and all would take a more serious look at it,” he said.last_img read more

Interior says its halting future Arctic offshore lease sales wont extend current

Interior says it’s halting future Arctic offshore lease sales, won’t extend current leases U.S. Rep. Don Young, R-Alaska,, left, listens as Alaska Gov. Bill Walker speaks to reporters at the Alaska Federation of Natives conference in Anchorage, Alaska, on Friday, Oct. 16, 2015. The men spoke after Interior Secretary Sally Jewell said her agency was canceling future lease sales and will not extend current drilling leases in Arctic waters off Alaska’s northern coast. (AP Photo/Mark Thiessen) by Dan Joling, The Associated Press Posted Oct 16, 2015 2:54 pm MDT Last Updated Oct 18, 2015 at 12:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email ANCHORAGE, Alaska – The Interior Department announced Friday it is cancelling future lease sales and will not extend current leases in Arctic waters off Alaska’s northern coast, a decision that significantly reduces the chances for future Arctic offshore drilling.The news follows a Sept. 28 announcement by Royal Dutch Shell that it would cease exploration in the Chukchi and Beaufort seas after spending upward of $7 billion on Arctic exploration. The company cited disappointing results from a well drilled in the Chukchi and the unpredictable federal regulatory environment.Interior Secretary Sally Jewell said the federal government is cancelling federal petroleum lease sales in U.S. Arctic waters that were scheduled for 2016 and 2017.“In light of Shell’s announcement, the amount of acreage already under lease and current market conditions, it does not make sense to prepare for lease sales in the Arctic in the next year and a half,” she said.Jewell said the Chukchi Sea off Alaska’s northwest coast and the Beaufort Sea off the state’s north coast will not be included in the agency’s current five-year lease sale plan. In addition, current leases held by Shell and other companies in Arctic waters will not be extended.Beaufort Sea leases are set to expire in 2017, and Chukchi Sea leases in 2020.Current market conditions and low industry interest made the leasing decision easier, Jewell said in a release.Royal Dutch Shell PLC is the only company actively exploring off Alaska’s northern costs. It had applied to extend leases in both the Chukchi and the Beaufort. Statoil requested an extension for Chukchi leases.Shell spokesman Curtis Smith said the company disagrees with the agency’s decision not to extend current leases.“When it comes to frontier exploration in Alaska, one size does not fit all,” Smith said by email. “We continue to believe the 10-year primary lease term needs to be extended.”In denying the extension, the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement’s regional supervisor for field operations, Kevin Pendergast, said Shell had not met the criteria to extend its leases, including providing the agency with a work schedule on them. Shell could apply again, he said.Independent Gov. Bill Walker met with Jewell in Washington, D.C., earlier this month about extending Shell’s leases and opening up a small part of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to drilling. His goal is to get more oil in the trans-Alaska pipeline, which is running at about a quarter of its capacity.Walker said Jewell’s decision left him with a “loss of hope, in some respects” about accomplishing that.“That pretty much shut down offshore. The only thing left is onshore,” he said of the agency’s announcement. “We know where the oil is. We just don’t have access to it.”Environmental groups strongly oppose Arctic drilling. They say industrial activity will harm marine mammals already hurt by a loss of sea ice, and global warming would be accelerated by burning oil found in the Arctic Ocean.Miyoko Sakashita of the Center for Biological Diversity lauded the Interior Department’s announcement.“This is great for the Arctic and its polar bears,” Sakashita said. “We need to keep all the Arctic oil in the ground.”Mike LeVine of oceans advocate Oceana added: “Secretary Jewell’s decisions today are consistent with the law as well as economic and environmental realities.”Sen. Dan Sullivan, R-Alaska, said the Obama administration is correct in wanting to help Alaska Natives and all Alaskans battle the state’s high rates of suicide, domestic violence and addiction.But he said the administration doesn’t see the link between economic opportunity and making people’s lives better.“They just took real opportunity, significant opportunities that could benefit thousands if not tens of thousands of Alaskans off the table,” Sullivan said. “That’s not going to help the social problems. That’s actually going to make them worse.”Rep. Don Young, the longest-serving Republican in the U.S. House, said this battle will likely end up in court.“I think this administration is adamantly opposed against fossil fuels, period,” said Young, Alaska’s sole House member. “They’ll do anything to stop it. I don’t think they have a legal leg to stand on.”___This story corrects that Alaska Gov. Bill Walker is an independent, instead of a Republican.___Associated Press writer Mark Thiessen in Anchorage contributed to this report. read more

January new car registrations fall 133 per cent as company car tax

January UK registrations fell 13.3 per cent to 157,363 units Fleet and business registrations fell 15.8 per cent UK confirmed as second biggest European market with 2,439,717 units in 2005 ‘January’s registration figures show the effect on a market when tax changes are not carefully considered’, commented SMMT chief executive Christopher Macgowan. ‘Many company car drivers clearly rushed to take advantage of the three per cent tax benefit at the end of 2005. This led to the record diesel registrations in December, and today’s weaker January market. ‘In a wider context, the UK car market remains Europe’s second largest, behind Germany. This shows that, despite tougher times for car dealers, we still have healthy demand’.

New online vehicle recall search tool to help motorists

Government has stated a 37% average response rate for consumer products (DTI, April 2000).The number of UK automotive safety recall campaigns fell by 26.8% between 2010 and 2013 (DVSA, 2014).The VIN can be found on the vehicle’s logbook (V5C) as well as on the dashboard on the driver’s side of the vehicle just underneath the base of the windscreen or on the inside of the driver’s door pillar.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) The UK automotive sector, led by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) and Motor Codes, has launched a new consumer-facing web portal to enable motorists to identify if their vehicle is on a safety recall list. Customers will also be directed to their nearest dealer so that any necessary remedial work can be carried out as quickly as possible.The Vehicle Safety Recall search tool, which operates using the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), is a one-stop-shop for car owners and buyers of used cars and vans to check if the vehicle is subject to an outstanding safety recall that they, or a previous owner, may have missed.The new service is available online via Motor Codes (motorcodes.co.uk), the automotive industry’s government-approved regulatory body, and is funded and managed by SMMT.The UK’s vehicle recall process, administered by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA), is already stringent and highly successful. The number of vehicles repaired following a recall campaign in the UK consistently exceeds 90% – one of the most successful compliance records anywhere in the world, and some two and a half times higher than the average rate for all consumer goods in the UK.1 The number of recall campaigns in the UK has fallen by more than a quarter since 2010, further demonstrating the industry’s strong track record on safety performance.2There are 36 million cars and light commercial vehicles on British roads, and manufacturers are committed to ensuring they remain safe throughout their lifecycles, through safety tests as well as by closely monitoring any customer incidents.Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive, said, “The UK vehicle recall process is one of the most robust in the world, and manufacturers are constantly striving to make it even better. Essential recalls can be missed when a vehicle transfers between owners so this portal provides a fast way of checking any safety issues. Vehicle manufacturers are committed to delivering the highest standards of safety and record keeping, to ensure the UK’s excellent vehicle safety record is maintained.”Mark Terry, Managing Director at Motor Codes, said, “Motor Codes is the automotive industry watchdog and consumer champion, so we are well placed to deliver this service.  We are committed to helping UK motorists identify if their car has an outstanding vehicle safety recall issue and to enabling manufacturers to meet their obligations in rectifying these issues”.Car owners and buyers can check the safety recall status of almost any given car or van at motorcodes.co.uk/vehicle-recall  by simply keying in the vehicle’s VIN – the 17-character number found in the car’s log book (V5C) and in the vehicle itself.3 The service also provides guidance on what to do in the event of an outstanding recall and allows users to link directly to their local dealer to arrange any necessary repair work. read more

New 10p coin collection celebrates queuing cricket tea and other quintessentially British

first_img10p coins Some sports fans and royalists might be left disappointed, however, as cricket was chosen to represent sport in place of football or rugby and the Queen missed out in place of “queuing”.There were also arguably less imaginative coin designs –  including “X marks the spot” for the letter X, and a picture of a Macintosh overcoat for the letter M.”It’s the granularity of British life celebrated on the coinage,” Dr Kevin Clancy, Director of the Royal Mint Museum, said.  The designs were chosen after a poll on what represents the best of BritishCredit:JULIAN SIMMONDS FOR THE DAILY TELEGRAPH  Would-be coin collectors wishing to discover the entire collection can download the Great British Coin Hunt app for free.

SC Allows RBI to Initiate Action against Sahara over Diversion of Funds

first_imgThe Supreme Court on Tuesday directed the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to initiate action against a Sahara Group company that liquidated securities worth Rs 500 crore to help a partner firm repay investors. This is in clear violation of an earlier order passed by the apex bodies to move all funds generated to the SEBI-Sahara account.RBI had moved the Supreme Court after a statutory auditor’s report indicated that Sahara India Financial Corp Ltd (SIFCL) had sold bonds and securities held by it and extended a loan of Rs. 484.67 crore to Sahara India.A June 2014 order of the Supreme Court had directed all funds gathered by way of sale of assets or securities by Sahara Group, to be held exclusively in the SEBI-Sahara account, set up to repay depositors.The RBI’s order on 17 June 2008, had directed SIFCL to not use any funds raised for a purpose other than to repay its own depositors and was also quoted in the RBI application submitted with the apex court.”We never allowed you to encash the securities and to pay the amount to the depositors. Rather, you should have deposited them into the SEBI-Sahara account,” the Bench said.The Bench directed the RBI to initiate necessary action against SIFCL and made the apex banking body a party to the proceedings. The Bench also asked to be provided with an update on action taken, said LiveMint.Fund DiversionThe diversion found a special mention in the auditor’s report, with Sahara’s senior counsel S Ganesh contesting the auditor’s findings. Sahara said that the funds had been utilised to repay investors. The auditors’ report says only Rs.3.03 crore and Rs.3.18 crore had been paid back to depositors.The Bench headed by T S Thakur took serious umbrage to the events, asking “how could you sell the identified securities? How can you touch these securities?…You should have come to us seeking permission to pay to the depositors.”We had vacated the order to enable you to deposit the money in the SEBI-Sahara account. You should have come clean on that.”The Bench, also comprising justices A R Dave and A K Sikri, asked the counsel for Sahara to file an additional affidavit explaining the disbursement of funds as claimed. Details pertaining to the recipient identity and the mode of payment – cash or cheque — are also to be divulged to the court, by way of submission of compact disks to the court, SEBI, RBI, amicus curie senior advocate Shekar Naphande, reported The New Indian Express.The Bench asked RBI to hear Sahara Group’s explanations and to pass the necessary order as required.Bail Fund Raising Status?The Bench declined to allow Sahara for an extension of communication facilities for its incarcerated chief Subrata Roy.Roy and his senior colleagues were arrested on 4 March, 2014 over violations of the Supreme Court order to remit the funds necessary to repay depositors in a bond scheme later deemed illegal.The Group has pursued various avenues to raise the Rs 10,000 crore bail amount, with three such transactions falling through in the past few months. Every time, Sahara had ventured to validate the buyers’ credentials to help fund the transaction, which has come under scrutiny with buyers either backing out or some paying a part sum and feigning inability to repay the rest.Even as Sahara has found it difficult to raise the Rs 10,000 crore required towards securing bail, its Amby Valley hill town facility, valued at Rs 38,000 crore is yet to be considered for sale to raise the necessary funds.”You are placing your business above personal liberty. Why don’t you sell and earn your liberty”, Justice Thakur said, reported Business Standard.last_img read more

Burqaclad women casting fake votes for BJP says BSP candidate Kunwar Danish

first_img Amit Shah: NDA will fight the 2019 Lok Sabha elections under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi (Representational Image)ReutersUttar Pradesh minister and BSP candidate from Amroha Lok Sabha seat Kunwar Danish Ali has accused women wearing burqas of casting fake votes. He claimed that the IDs of women with their faces covered were not being verified.Kunwar said that the women return to cast their vote a second time for the Bharatiya Janata Party. According to NDTV, he went on to say that a man was also caught wearing a burqa.While Kunwar alleged that this was going on in his constituency, he also said that there were a lot of similar instances in other constituencies in the state.Earlier, during the first phase of Lok Sabha elections on April 11, BJP candidate from Uttar Pradesh Sanjiv Balyan had raised the issue saying that women wearing burqas were not checked.However, BR Tiwari, the additional election officer, clarified the issue and said that the identities of the women are verified by female election officials. Ajit Singh of the Rashtriya Janata Dal mocked Balyan for his comments and said that the BJP candidate is now used to speaking such nonsense, reports IANS.

Food Ordering App Tests Drone Delivery in Singapore

first_img This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. Enroll Now for Free 2 min read Why go to the grocery store when you could get your meals by drone delivery?The possibility presented itself after global food ordering app, Foodpanda, unveiled a number of improvements to its services. On top of quicker delivery times, going to 30 minutes rather than 60 to 70, the business has been testing drone deliveries in Singapore, according to CNBC. “We’re constantly looking at the most convenient and fastest experience for customers ordering food online,” Foodpanda Singapore’s Managing Director, Emma Heap, told CNBC. “With our riders navigating traffic, there’s a limit as to how fast that can be.”Related: Rocket Internet’s Foodpanda Makes A Meal Out Of UAE’s 24h.aeFoodpanda isn’t the only company to go the drone route in the food industry. Last year, Singapore eatery Timbre said it had plans to launch autonomous server-drones, or flying waiters. TGI Friday’s once used the flying bots to hover mistletoe over diners, but that didn’t end quite well.But if you’re not exactly sure how to tip your drones, you better figure it out soon because it won’t be long until delivery robots are part of the picture. Domino’s in Australia, for instance, announced the intention to do so in the next few years if preliminary tests work out. Other companies including Amazon and Walmart are also considering delivery by way of drone-flights as they work out the logistics and legalities.The initiative might be easier if the military’s tentative 3-D printing drone project works out, which would not only speed up the drone production process with leftover parts and a portable on-the-go process, but constructing drones would be considerably cheaper as well. Related: What the Heck Are Drones Good For, Anyway? Though the drone trend, and the possibility of inexpensive streamlined production, may seem like an exciting development in the tech world, others may instead have reason to take pause — especially delivery boys (or gals). Sadly, it may soon be time for this group, and many others, to find new jobs.  Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now March 23, 2016 Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.last_img read more
