Man pulled from collapsed house in Hamilton taken to hospital officials

first_imgHAMILTON – Emergency crews rescued a man from the wreckage of a house that exploded in Hamilton on Tuesday, rushing him to hospital after the blast that scattered debris around the residential neighbourhood.The man, whose name has not been released, was taken to hospital with unknown injuries, police said.David Nevin said he was on the sidewalk in front of his home when he heard a bang and saw “parts of a house flying onto the road.”“And of course I looked toward the bang,” he said, adding his first concern was for the homeowner, who is elderly and blind, but neighbours called out and could hear him respond, so they knew he was alive.The man uses a service dog, Nevin said, which was his next concern.“We found the dog. He wouldn’t move. Traumatized quite a bit,” he said.Next, Nevin said, he worried about the house itself.“I went and got my wrench to try and shut off the gas, but the meter’s inside and the meter on the sidewalk was covered with house, so I had to let the fire department know and get out of the way,” he said.Police said gas had been shut down in the area, with about 200 homes affected. Several nearby homes were evacuated, but the Red Cross said the residents returned after a couple of hours.The street was cordonned off with police tape, but photos of the house posted online show its bottom half destroyed, the roof intact but tilted forward and nearly touching the ground, and a car half-buried under the rubble.Karen Young, another neighbour, said she lives three doors down from the house and was so close she could feel the explosion.“I was at home watching TV, and we just felt the house shake and came out, and the house was on the ground,” she said.“It was a dust cloud, and debris, and that was it. And of course a lot of panicking people.”It was not immediately known what caused the explosion.last_img read more

NGT directs DDA to submit report on ‘Neela Hauz’ lake

first_imgNEW DELHI: The National Green Tribunal on Monday directed the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) to furnish action taken a report on rejuvenation of the ‘Neela Hauz’ lake in south Delhi. A bench headed by NGT chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel directed the DDA to submit the report within a month. The green panel said conservation of a water body is essential for the environment as it helps in recharging groundwater and maintaining micro-climate in the area. Also Read – More good air days in Delhi due to Centre’s steps: Javadekar”The DDA must take necessary steps by way of fencing and preventing dumping of waste. Accordingly, we are of the view that a factual and action taken report needs to be taken from the DDA. Let such report be furnished by the DDA within a month by e-mail at A copy of this order, along with the newspaper report be sent to the DDA by e-mail for compliance,” the bench said. The matter is posted for next hearing on August 13. The tribunal’s order came after taking note of the newspaper report which said the ‘Neela Hauz’ lake is becoming a dumping ground. Waste so dumped is being retrieved daily by the DDA but no preventive or remedial action against illegal dumping is being taken which adversely affects the conservation of lake, it said. “As the lake lies on Aruna Asaf Ali Marg, commuters just park their vehicles on the side of the road and dump waste directly into the waterbody. This ranges from municipal solid waste, plastic bags and bottles, glass to puja material and often include biomedical waste like syringes, according to officials of the DDA,” the report said.last_img read more

Japan briefs diplomats to wipe Fukushima nuke water concern

TOKYO — Japan has reassured foreign diplomats about the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant’s safety amid concerns about massive amounts of treated but radioactive water stored in tanks.The Fukushima plant, which suffered triple meltdowns in the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, stores more than 1 million tons of treated but radioactive water in nearly 1,000 tanks.The plant’s operator said last month it will run out of storage space in 2022, prompting South Korea to raise safety questions amid tensions with Japan over trade and history.Diplomats from 22 countries, including South Korea, attended a briefing Wednesday where Japanese officials stressed the importance of combating rumours.Experts say the tanks pose flooding and radiation risks and hamper decontamination efforts. They recommend the water’s controlled release into the sea, but local residents oppose this.The Associated Press read more

NBC outbids ESPN and Turner Sports for 2nd half of NASCAR TV

NBC outbids ESPN and Turner Sports for 2nd half of NASCAR TV package beginning in 2015 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Jenna Fryer, The Associated Press Posted Jul 23, 2013 3:19 pm MDT CHARLOTTE, N.C. – NASCAR will return to NBC in 2015, ending its eight-year partnership with both ESPN and Turner Sports.The 10-year deal with NBC Sports Group announced Tuesday begins in 2015 and gives the network the final 20 Sprint Cup Series races of the season and final 19 Nationwide races. NBC last broadcast races in 2006 before ESPN took over its portion of the schedule.“We are back. We are thrilled to be back,” said Mark Lazarus, chairman of NBC Sports Group. He said of all the deals made since Comcast Corp. purchased NBC, the NASCAR deal “is one that we’ve really been focused on, one that we have wanted to have the opportunity to be able to sit at the table when contractual opportunities came due.”“The quantity of content that this deal provides and the quality of content that this provides is really a game changer for us for our entire group, and we can’t wait to get started,” Lazarus added.The deal makes NBC Sports Group the premier motorsports network with NASCAR, Formula One and IndyCar among its properties — a trifecta Lazarus said made NBC the motorsports leader.“I believe with us now being the home to the second half of the NASCAR season, the home for cable for Indy and the home to Formula 1, that we are probably the most dominant home for motorsports, and that that circulation of motorsports fans will be good for all,” he said.A previous relationship with Lazarus, who was formerly with Turner Sports, and the ability to be part of NBC’s sports properties attracted NASCAR.“With NBC, you’re joining a family at NBC Sports where you’ll be surrounded by incredible championship-type programming,” said Steve Herbst, NASCAR’s vice-president of broadcasting and production. “Their football package on Sunday night is the No. 1 show on television … they are the home to championship programming and we’ll be promoted and marketed and shown alongside those top-tier events.”NBC will air seven Cup races, while 13 will be on the NBC Sports Network. The Nationwide Series will have four events on NBC and 15 on NBC Sports Network.There are still three Sprint Cup races to be sold, which Herbst believes will move quickly. Lazarus said NBC purchased everything made available to the network, which means the three events not currently held by Fox were not offered.“We were offered a package that had 20 in them, so we bought everything that was made available to us. That doesn’t mean we bought everything we wanted,” Lazarus said.Herbst said some of the Cup events on NBC will be a lead-in to “Sunday Night Football.”“We’re going to have the opportunity as we get into the fall season and the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup to be on Sunday afternoons leading into NFL football, and that’s an exciting opportunity for us, given the obvious power of the NFL,” he said. “We still have a ways to go to figure out what races and when, but it will be select races that go into Sunday Night Football.”The deal also gave NBC Sports Group rights to the K&N Series and NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour events, NASCAR Toyota (Mexico) Series events, the NASCAR Hall of Fame induction ceremony and season-ending banquets, live-streaming rights for Cup and Nationwide, and Spanish-language broadcast rights on Telemundo and Mun2 for national series events and NASCAR Toyota (Mexico) Series.The rights to the first half of the Nationwide schedule have not been publicly announced, but NASCAR chairman Brian France let slip in a Tuesday conference call with reporters that there will be Nationwide races on Fox Sports 1.“We will have both Cup and Nationwide on FOX Sports 1 at some level,” France said during the call. ESPN currently broadcasts the entire Nationwide schedule.If correct, Fox would be the leading candidate for the three remaining unsold Cup races.Jon Ackley, an associate professor who teaches a NASCAR business course at Virginia Commonwealth, said he initially thought ESPN and Turner dropped NASCAR at the right time because of increased rights fees and sinking television ratings. But the more he studied it, the more he began to think NASCAR chose NBC over the others.“Maybe this is a good deal for NASCAR, it certainly gives a lot of continuity for the schedule and makes it easier for viewers to find the race on each weekend,” he said.Still, he noted that it’s unclear how many races will be on cable TV. Fox, for example, has not said how many Cup races will be broadcast on Fox Sports 1.“I don’t even know if I get NBC Sports on my satellite,” he said. “That’s another concern of mine is that unlike ESPN with its 24-hour coverage, everybody knows ESPN and they go to ESPN if they are looking for something. It’s very accessible. There may be a learning curve and it may be a very slow learning curve for the public wondering where to find their NASCAR.”NBC Sports Group replaces ESPN, which carries 17 events and picks up its portion of the schedule this weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and Turner, which currently has six races on the schedule.NBC shared the television contract with Fox from 2001-06 in the first national TV deal for NASCAR. NBC pulled out of negotiations on an extension, and ESPN picked up that portion of the schedule in 2007.Ackley also wondered what the ramifications could be for NASCAR after severing ties with ESPN.ESPN was not allowed to do on-camera interviews at the track from 2001-06, and its reporters were forced to race to a nearby helipad after races to speak to drivers before they headed home.“I was sort of surprised that once again, NASCAR has turned its back on ESPN, like it did in 2000,” Ackley said. “I’m wondering what the fallout will be, whether it will be a lack of respect of NASCAR coverage and reporting.”John Skipper, president of ESPN, said the network will continue to cover NASCAR when its deal expires.“We will continue to serve NASCAR fans through SportsCenter and our other news platforms as we continue to enhance our industry-leading collection of quality assets. We are looking forward to the start of our Sprint Cup season and will continue with our deep commitment to the highest quality coverage,” Skipper said in a statement.France thinks the relationship with ESPN will be fine.“It’s a different time now. They have different thinking about how they want to cover sports,” France said. “Obviously you think about all those things, but the reality is they have to cover the big events that people watch every weekend. You never can predict the future, but we didn’t think that was something that would hold us back from making this deal, that’s for sure.”Turner indicated earlier Tuesday it could not compete financially in the negotiations to extend its 31-year relationship with NASCAR.“We think NASCAR is an attractive property, but we are disciplined in our approach to negotiating sports rights and could not come up with a business model that was financially prudent for our company,” said David Levy, president of sales, distribution and sports at Turner. read more

Short URLcenter_img 31,046 Views Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Share Tweet Email Sunday 21 Apr 2019, 5:59 PM 78 Comments Liverpool’s midfield has begun to chip in with crucial goals at the right time of the season and Henderson should have provided another moments later when he fired wastefully over with the goal at his mercy.Klopp vented his frustration at Henderson’s miss and it was nearly costly when Cardiff captain Sean Morrison had a glorious chance to level 26 minutes from time.Morrison seemed to have the simple task of heading into an empty net as Alisson got caught underneath a corner, but he mistimed his header and the ball instead bounced to safety off his back.And Morrison was the Cardiff villain at the other end when he was adjudged to have brought down Salah inside the area 10 minutes from time and substitute Milner confidently dispatched the spot-kick.© – AFP 2019Subscribe to our new podcast, The42 Rugby Weekly, here: LIVERPOOL CONTINUE TO put the pressure on Manchester City as a hard-fought 2-0 win at relegation threatened Cardiff moved them back top of the Premier League on Sunday.Georginio Wijnaldum’s opener just before the hour and James Milner’s penalty secured a ninth consecutive win in all competitions for Jurgen Klopp’s side and moved them two points ahead of City, who have a game in hand, at the top of the table.City travel to Manchester United on Wednesday in what appears the toughest hurdle left for the English champions to clear and deny Liverpool a first Premier League title in 29 years.The Reds remain poised to pounce if Pep Guardiola’s side fail to pick up maximum points in their remaining four games.While Liverpool were cruising into a second successive Champions League semi-final in midweek, Cardiff gave their chances of survival a huge boost with a 2-0 win at Brighton to close within three points of safety.If Neil Warnock’s men are to defy the odds to stay up, it is upcoming games against already relegated Fulham and Crystal Palace they will need to win, but they did not make life easy for Liverpool.The visitors should have taken the lead midway through the first-half when their front three clicked together for the first time when Mohamed Salah fed Sadio Mane and the Senegalese’s pass put Roberto Firmino clean through on goal. However, the Brazilian blazed over with just Neil Etheridge to beat.Salah has found his form in front of goal at the right time for Liverpool’s bid for a Premier League and Champions League double.However, after scoring in three of his past four games, Salah could not keep that streak going as he fired too close to Etheridge when played in by Jordan Henderson. Wijnaldum opens the scoring for Liverpool. Source: Nigel FrenchCardiff’s massed ranks of defence allowed Liverpool to enjoy nearly 75% possession, but the home team did not pose a threat of their own until they nearly took a shock lead just before the break.Victor Camarasa’s mishit shot fell kindly for Oumar Niasse and the on loan Everton striker nearly brought even more a smile to fans of his parent club on a day they beat Manchester United 4-0, but his shot was turned over by Alisson Becker.There was little reason for Liverpool to panic at half-time as their previous four Premier League games had also been won with second-half goals and so it proved once more.Trent Alexander-Arnold bagged his 10th assist of the season as the England international’s corner was pulled back for Wijnaldum to lash into the net first time.last_img read more

FSSAI bans use of recycled plastic and paper for food packaging

first_img(Representational image) Recyclable plastic bottles in VietnamReuters/Nguyen Huy KhamIn a bid to check the usage of hazardous material in packaging that poses a health risk, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has banned the use of recycled plastic or newspaper and magazine pages for packaging of food items.According to Hindustan Times, the country’s top food regulator has worked on new food packaging regulations that are in the process of being notified which are scheduled to come into effect from July 1.”The packaging of food regulations have been sent for publishing and will raise the bar for food safety in India. Packaging is an integral part of the process and we have framed regulations to address it,” said FSSAI chief executive officer Pawan Agarwal.The FSSAI has acknowledged the importance of packaging in the food sector and its impact on food safety and it is for that matter there has been separate regulations for packaging and labelling.Once approved the new regulations will replace the existing Food Safety and Standards (Packaging and Labelling) Regulations, 2011. Apart from the general and specific requirement for packaging material, the regulations also give an overview of the overall and specific migration limits of contaminants for plastic packaging materials. Moreover, the regulation has also given a suggestive list of packing materials for different food product categories.In the surveys conducted by the regulator in past, the main cause of the concern for the food regulator is the unorganized sector that found to be making use of hazardous packaging material. As per the surveys commissioned by FSSAI, out of the total 380 packaging samples taken from the unorganized sector, 51 samples were found to be non-conforming, taking overall rate to 13.4 per cent.In the instances where the samples have not complied with the regulation, the samples were even contaminated unorganized sector that found to be making use of hazardous packaging material.Aggarwal said “the surveys that we commissioned have shown that the packaging material used by the organized sector is largely safe but it’s the unorganized sector that is a cause for concern for us, especially loose packaging material.”last_img read more

Twin blasts kill 46 pilgrims in Syria

first_imgTwin bombs targeting Shiite pilgrims on Saturday killed 46 people in Damascus, most of them Iraqis, a monitoring group said, in one of the bloodiest attacks in the Syrian capital.There have been periodic bomb attacks in Damascus, but the stronghold of the regime of President Bashar al-Assad has been largely spared the destruction faced by other major cities in six years of civil war.A roadside bomb detonated as a bus passed and a suicide bomber blew himself up in the Bab al-Saghir area, which houses several Shiite mausoleums that draw pilgrims from around the world, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.”There are also dozens of people wounded, some of them in a serious condition,” Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman told AFP.State television said there were 40 dead and 120 wounded after “terrorists detonated two bombs.”It broadcast footage of several white buses with their windows shattered, some of them heavily charred.Shoes, glasses and wheelchairs laid scattered on the ground covered in blood.Syrian Interior Minister Mohammad Shaar said the attack targeted “pilgrims of various Arab nationalities.””The sole aim was to kill,” he said.The Iraqi foreign ministry said around 40 of its nationals were among the dead and 120 among the wounded.There was no immediate claim for the attack.Shiite shrines are a frequent target of attack for Sunni extremists of Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State group (IS), not only in Syria but also in neighbouring Iraq.The Sayeda Zeinab mausoleum to the south of Damascus, Syria’s most visited Shiite pilgrimage site, has been hit by several deadly bombings during the six-year-old civil war.Twin suicide bombings in the high-security Kafr Sousa district of the capital in January killed 10 people, eight of them soldiers. More peace talks planned That attack was claimed by former Al-Qaeda affiliate Fateh al-Sham Front which said that it had targeted Russian military advisers working with the Syrian army.It was widely seen as an attempt to disrupt UN-brokered peace talks that took place the following month which to the anger of Fateh al-Sham were supported by its former Islamist rebel ally Ahrar al-Sham.UN envoy Staffan de Mistura has called a new round of talks for March 23.Fateh al-Sham has been repeatedly bombed in its northwestern stronghold this year, not only by the Syrian army and its Russian ally but also by a US-led coalition battling IS in both Syria and Iraq.The rift over the UN-brokered talks between the rebels and the government has also seen deadly clashes between the jihadists and their former Islamist rebel allies.The two groups had together seized virtually all of the northwestern province of Idlib but are now vying for territorial control.Bomb attacks are rare in Damascus, a stronghold of the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.The Syrian capital is sometimes the target of shelling by rebel groups who hold areas on the outskirts.On December 16 a seven-year-old girl wearing an explosive belt blew herself up outside a police station in Midan district, wounding three police officers.Two blasts near state security agencies in Kafr Sousa in December 2011 killed more than 40 people and wounded more than 150, the Syrian government said at the time.last_img read more

The coming disintegration of Iraq

first_imgNouri al-Maliki may have agreed to step down as prime minister of Iraq on Thursday, but the damage he has wrought will define his country for decades to come. The stunning collapse of the Iraqi state in its vast northern and western provinces may be al-Maliki’s most significant legacy. After nine decades as the capital of a unitary, centralized state, Baghdad no longer rules Kurdistan, nor Fallujah, nor Mosul, and might never rule them again.To his likely successor, Haider al-Abadi, al-Maliki will bequeath an Iraqi state that has reverted to the authoritarian muscle memory it developed under Saddam Hussein. But it will be a state that effectively controls not much more than half the territory Saddam did. As al-Maliki and his loyalists succeeded in consolidating control of the government and pushing rivals out of power, they drove the constituencies of those they excluded — especially Sunni Arabs and Kurds — into political opposition or armed insurrection. Their drive for power alienated Iraqis across all communities from the central state whose wards and clients they had once been, leaving almost no provincial population trustful of the central government. Al-Maliki has held sway in Baghdad, but whole swaths of Iraq have fallen out of his control: The tighter he grasped the state, the more the country slipped through his fingers.The current crisis in Iraq goes far beyond the question of who will lead the next government in Baghdad. Iraqis have entered into a civil war whose logical conclusion is the breakup of the country. What we are witnessing in Iraq today is the beginning of a process that could become at least as destructive and bloody as the breakup of Yugoslavia. The longer it is allowed to unfold, the less likely it will be stopped, and the more likely it will spill over on a large scale to destabilize the surrounding region. Displaced Iraqi Yazidis, who fled a jihadist onslaught on Sinjar, gather to collect bottles of water at the Bajid Kandala camp in Kurdistan’s western Dohuk province, on Aug. 13, 2014. Ahmad Al-Rubaye/AFPIt is tempting to conclude that the U.S.-led regime change of 2003 inevitably led to sectarian violence and politics in Iraq by opening up the country’s preexisting fractures. But the deep sectarianism of the past decade was neither foreordained to follow Saddam’sfall nor completely natural in Iraqi society. It was instead a calculated objective of the powerful, mainly expatriate parties that arrived in Baghdad after April 2003, bringing with them sectarian agendas that had been decades in the making. These groups, which included al-Maliki and the Dawa party, as well as almost all of Iraq’s major Islamist and ethnic parties, have had independent but complementary interests in polarizing the country, turning a mixed-sect, multiethnic nation into one of homogeneous ethnic and sectarian political constituencies. The result has been a devastating civil war, and an Iraq more thoroughly sorted by sect and ethnicity than ever before.As Iraq’s major parties have carved the nation into political empires, they have in many regions allowed the state to recede from the streets, creating power and security vacuums that militant and criminal groups have been quick to fill. The creeping takeover of Sunni neighborhoods by Islamic State fighters and their fellow travelers has been well documented, but in other areas Shiite Islamist militants have roamed freely for years, with the state absent or complicit. Away from the Islamic State’s atrocities in the far north, Shiite militant groups trained by Iran to fight U.S. troops until 2011 now seem poised to insulate Baghdad and the Shiite south from the Islamic State threat. They eventually may evict Sunnis from the region around Baghdad in the name of counterterrorism, with the assistance of the Iranian regime and Lebanese Hezbollah, and with the political blessing of the Shiite Islamist political parties that on Monday nominated al-Abadi as their premier.For years now, some outsiders and some Iraqi factions have called for the partition of the country as a matter of policy — a solution to the intractable political disputes. Perhaps the best-known instance was in 2006, when then-Sen. Joe Biden and Leslie Gelb of the Council on Foreign Relationscalled for the division of the country into three autonomous regions, based on sect, with a central government that would “control border defense, foreign affairs and oil revenues.” Invoking the example of Bosnia, Biden and Gelb offered their plan as a way to keep the country intact and prevent sectarian warfare from escalating.But as we are likely to find out in the coming years, there is no way for Iraq to be divided into three homelands for Shiites, Kurds and Sunnis without experiencing exactly the massive human misery that Biden, Gelb and others hoped partition might forestall. No clean ethno-sectarian lines already exist in Iraq, meaning that the boundaries of the various statelets would have to be fought over. The populations of northern and central Iraq in particular are so intertwined that separating people into sectarian enclaves would immediately prompt violent sectarian cleansing on a scale sure to exceed that of Yugoslavia. At least a quarter of a million non-Sunnis would probably be forced to leave Sunni-majority territories, while more than half a million Sunnis would probably be expelled from the greater Baghdad region, with those Sunni Baghdadis that remain herded into ghettos in and around the city. Iraqi Kurdish Peshmerga fighters take position on the frontline in Khazer, near the Kurdish checkpoint of Aski kalak, 40 km west of Arbil, the capital of the autonomous Kurdish region of northern Iraq, on Aug. 14, 2014. Safin Hamed/AFPThere would also be millions of Iraqis caught in limbo. What would become, for example, of the large minority population that is not Sunni, Shiite or Kurd? And what would become of Iraq’s more than 1 million Turkmen? What would become of the millions of Iraqis in intermarried families of Shiite and Sunni or Arab and Kurd? The fragmenting of the country into sectarian cantons would leave these millions with no clear place to go.Nor is it likely that the fragmentation of Iraq, once begun, would stop at just three sections. The country would be far more likely to split effectively into four pieces or more. The Sunnis of Anbar and Mosul, who have a long-standing rivalry, would be unlikely to consent to living together in one Sunnistan, where one region might be dominated by the other. They would be more likely to live in competing Tigris and Euphrates regions or statelets. Nor is it clear that, once unmoored from Baghdad, the major Kurdish parties would live together in one region where one party could rule the others. Lastly, the shrunken Shiite-majority section would be a rump Iraq stretching from Samarra to the Persian Gulf, rich in oil but certain to fall into the Iranian regime’s orbit for the foreseeable future.Nor would the creation of these sections be the end of the matter, as then-Deputy Prime Minister Saleh al-Mutlak, a Sunni, warned in a 2011 CNN interview: “Dividing the country isn’t going to be smooth, because dividing the country is going to be a war before that and a war after that.” The new states or quasi-states of the former Iraq would surely enter into a long series of wars that none would be strong enough to decisively win, with a death toll unlikely to be less than the roughly quarter-million killed in the Yugoslav wars and a total displacement of perhaps one-quarter of Iraq’s population. An Iraqi Kurdish Peshmerga fighter plays a musical instrument on the frontline in Khazer. U.S. military advisers in Iraq were headed for Mount Sinjar to study means of evacuating civilians who have been trapped there by jihadists, a spokesman for the Kurdish peshmerga forces said last Wednesday. Safin Hamed/AFPIf Iraq fragments in this manner, either formally or de facto, there will be no way to preserve a meaningful central structure in which the different sectarian enclaves together defend the country’s borders and share natural resources. In the north in particular, Sunni Arabs, Turkmen and Kurds are more likely to war over the oil-rich disputed territories, while the governments in Baghdad and Irbil will never share oil revenue with Sunni provinces that are at war with the Shiites and Kurds. And since there are no bodies of water or mountain ranges separating Iraq from its western and southern neighbors, these conflicts will not be physically contained as the Balkan wars were. They are sure to spill over, eventually drawing in every neighbor even more deeply than they are already.Iraq’s prospects for political stability are dim, and the country faces fundamental questions that al-Maliki’s impending departure will do little to solve. Reintegrating the Sunni community and provinces back into the Iraqi state would be the necessary starting point for leaders who wish to preserve their country. But the political environment that al-Maliki will leave behind is largely devoid of the trust necessary for partnerships and power-sharing. One reason al-Maliki and his allies have mightily resisted leaving power is that after eight years of rough rule, no member of his group can be fully assured that a successor party will leave them to live in peace. Similarly, what Kurdish leader believes that Sunni Arabs, if ever back in power, would not immediately attempt to push the Kurds back into the mountains and crush Kurdish nationalism? And after a decade of attempting to make Sunnis a permanent minority underclass, what Shiite supremacist does not fear what Sunnis would do if they ever regained control of Baghdad?The enduring dilemmas that have dogged modern Iraq — the relationship between the people and the state, the relationship between Kurdistan and Arab Iraq, the relationship between Sunnis and Shiites, the relationship between Baghdad and its 18provinces — remain unsettled. It would take a leader or movement of extraordinary vision to settle them peacefully, and no such visionary is on the horizon. It is Iraq’s strongmen, sectarians and Islamist resistance who control the path to conflict resolution. The longer they hold sway, the smaller the chance that Iraq will hold together.It is not too late for Iraq. But soon, it will be. The civil war of the past decade has been many things: a struggle between terrorists and the state, between religious extremes, between al-Maliki loyalists and their rivals, between regional proxies, between sects and ethnicities that have not relearned how to coexist. But it has most essentially been a war on Iraqi society itself, slowly draining the lifeblood of one of the world’s oldest countries, which after five millennia has begun to expire before our eyes.U.S. Army Col.

Jason Snidermans glamrock persona Ensign Broderi

first_imgJason Sniderman’s glam-rock persona Ensign Broderick unleashed at 60 TORONTO — Jason Sniderman has been frustratingly patient with his glam-rock persona, Ensign Broderick.It was nearly half a century ago when he was a teenager that he first imagined his alter ego taking the music industry by storm. Ensign was a cocktail of influences dreamed up in his bedroom — a dash of David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust mixed with Nick Cave’s bold audacity, and a splash of Mick Jagger’s flamboyant swagger.Sniderman envisioned the singer’s fashion and wrote entire albums complete with painstakingly designed cover art.He was ready to make Ensign Broderick one of Canada’s glam rock gods — until he changed his mind and stowed the idea away for decades. Now 60, he’s bringing the persona into the spotlight with nearly a career’s worth of albums ready for release.“Time is so elastic in what I’m doing,” says the soft-spoken musician as he sips white wine at a Toronto restaurant.“I’m starting where I left off. I took a 30-year break and now I’m back.”Over the past year, he’s released five studio albums of original material, culled from tapes he recorded as a teenager and remixed in the present day. They debuted on streaming services and appeared on vinyl with little fanfare — a quiet rollout intended to spread Ensign’s reputation through organic word of mouth rather than social media.If it works, vinyl collectors will be telling their friends about the rich catalogue of an undiscovered rock legend who sounds like Bowie and Bryan Ferry’s mysterious love child.“BloodCrush” became the latest to join his back catalogue earlier this month. Another album will be added early next year with support from Canadian indie label Six Shooter Records.Each release carries Ensign along the chronological path in his story, starting in the 1970s and gradually moving into the new wave era of the early 1980s. In the alternate universe of his persona, Sniderman supposes five albums in he’s probably in his mid-20s.“For me I see the whole thing as a totality,” he says.“I can see the entire arc of what I’m doing. And I can see the graceful dovetailing as the art dies down.”Sniderman knows the record business like few others. His father was Sam Sniderman, the late founder of now defunct music store chain Sam the Record Man.Growing up, Sniderman practically lived inside the walls of the Toronto flagship where he began stocking shelves at age five. His dad would pay him in vinyl records instead of cash, so before his tenth birthday he had amassed an impressive collection of discs, from the Rolling Stones to Little Richard.He devoured rock magazines of the era including Cream and Circus, giving him the notion that talent plus a colourful personality was the best way to attract girls. Even the most androgynous performers were considered sex symbols when they had a guitar in their hands.And so Ensign Broderick sprang to life inspired by English rock stars of the early 1970s. “Ensign” was pulled from “Jensen,” the maker of his favourite car, and “Broderick” simply sounded cool, he says.“You spend a lot of time in your bedroom thinking about being someone other than who you are,” he says. “Eventually something comes out of that.”He began slipping into glittery jackets made with craft supplies and tried on makeup in the privacy of his bedroom. It wasn’t until he walked into his high school that he learned his classmates weren’t so enthused about his glamorous side.The conflict came to a head at the school’s variety show where his band “doubled down on being the New York Dolls mixed with Elton John.”Their performance was a colossal failure, he says.Two girls who organized the event accused him of ruining the show, and a teacher cornered Sniderman and told him the performance was too loud, too long and too gay, Sniderman remembers.When the school issued an apology over the P.A. system, Sniderman says it cut deep.“I was vilified,” he says. “I was devastated. To me, it was a pushback on everything I thought I was.”So he retreated to his bedroom where he continued to write in secrecy. Songs turned into concept albums, and he designed album covers using cut-and-paste art inspired by Bowie and Roxy Music, imaging the fan frenzy his big debut would ignite.But his friends weren’t buying into the persona and the lukewarm reception eventually became too much of a burden. He shelved the project and turned to playing safer gigs as a session musician. He eventually joined synthpop outfit Blue Peter, whose 1983 hit “Don’t Walk Past” helped them get opening slots on Toronto dates for the Police and Simple Minds.He also stepped in as vice president of Sam the Record Man in the 1980s, while continuing to play music on the side, and took the reins at the company alongside his brother when Sam’s emerged from bankruptcy in the early aughts.Throughout, Sniderman says Ensign was only in “a bit of a hibernation stage.” About five years ago he began pulling out the old recordings and wondering if he could take them somewhere new in the digital era.First he uploaded a few rough versions of songs to SoundCloud, a free streaming platform for musicians. Word got to Six Shooter founder Shauna de Cartier who was instantly fascinated with the treasure trove of music history.She urged Sniderman to consider letting her label unleash the recordings.“I was thinking, you’re making the biggest mistake of your life,” Sniderman recalls.But de Cartier’s persistence won him over.She cracked open the Ensign Broderick archive, first releasing the album “Feast Of Panthers” in March before digging deeper into other works that fully realized his teenage recordings.On his album “Ranger,” released in May, the song “Four Bells” uses a layered track of harmony and rhythm recorded in 1976 as the basis for a Bowie-esque song drenched in brass instrumentation and finger snaps.The latest album “BloodCrush” features a number of time warps into the 1970s, including “Electric Blue,” a song written by a 13-year-old Sniderman that carries the weight of melancholic young love.Sniderman says he’s already drafted another five albums, including an “epic glam record” with producer David Bottrill, who shaped projects by Peter Gabriel and Muse.“I’m getting to the point where it is a complete work,” he says of his catalogue.Sniderman says he’s not under any illusions that Ensign Broderick will suddenly sweep the music scene. He’ll be humbled by whoever finds inspiration in the music, since for so long it seemed like nobody would.“Even if I found 100 people or 200 people who liked it, that would be great,” he says.“That would be enough for me.” Follow @dfriend on Twitter.David Friend, The Canadian Press AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emailcenter_img by David Friend, The Canadian Press Posted Nov 22, 2018 1:05 pm PDT Jason Sniderman, posing as Ensign Broderick, is photographed in Toronto on Wednesday, October 10, 2018. Jason Sniderman has been waiting nearly 60 years to bring glam-rock star Ensign Broderick to life. After facing backlash in high school over his androgynous styles, the musician says he chose to keep his alter-ego confined to his bedroom, where he wrote songs that never saw the light of day. Now, more than four decades later, the son of Sam the Record Man founder Sam Sniderman is bringing Ensign back to life in a huge way, releasing five albums this year with another one lined up for early next year.

New smoking law scrapes through

first_imgLegislative amendments attached to the government bill on smoking watered down many of its initially draconian clauses on Friday, prompting outrage by opposition parties, though the bill was eventually voted into law by the slimmest of margins.The controversial bill, the late voting of which had brought Cyprus to the brink of a hefty fine by the European Commission, was finally discussed and voted on at the plenum, but amendments by various parties effectively negated many of the original smoking bans proposed.The bill was passed by a razor-thin majority of 22 votes in favour – ruling Disy and opposition parties Edek, the Citizens’ Alliance, and Solidarity – while 21 MPs voted against – main opposition Akel, Diko, and Elam – and the Greens’ Giorgos Perdikis abstained.A plenary vote on the smoking bill had already been postponed twice, as parties haggled in search of consensus, resulting in Cyprus missing the February 9 deadline set by the European Commission for passing the harmonising bill.The harmonising part of the bill, which called for placing restrictions on electronic cigarette use similar to those on tobacco products, with the exception of electronic cigarette use during purchase for testing purposes.The bill also banned smoking in all work areas, hospitals, schools, playgrounds for children, and all their open areas, was unanimously backed by all parties, but disagreements started to surface when additional clauses were introduced to better regulate smoking.According to these, smoking in an open area adjacent to an enclosed space, where smoking is banned, will be allowed as long as the two areas are separated by a “permanent structure”, which may or may not include a door connecting them.A legislative amendment further relaxed the rules, allowing smoking in “open areas” – defined as any enclosed space with one side permanently open – and removed the obligation for a permanent partition between open and closed areas if 30 per cent, or more, of the outside smoking area is open.Opposition parties decried this arrangement, claiming it paves the way for smoking to be allowed effectively everywhere.The bill also introduces administrative fines up to €850 by the chief of health services on individuals or businesses that violate the law, and creates a national registry of tobacco producers, who may be subject to sample checks to establish the quantities of tar, nicotine, and carbon monoxide in their products.Meanwhile, a legislative amendment proposed by Akel banning smoking inside the casino licensed last year by the government was rejected.A representative of the ministry of commerce had told committee members during discussion of the bill that the smoking exemption for the casino had been the result of negotiations with the licensees, and its revocation may impact Cyprus’ image as an investment destination.But another amendment, this one from Edek, Solidarity, and the Citizens’ Alliance, allowing designated “cigar lounges” – or smoking areas – at hotels, provided the air-conditioning system in these areas is separate from the hotels’ central system.Parliament also passed a legislative proposal for out-of-court settlements of some of the offences prescribed in the new law.Such offences include smoking in no-smoking areas, vehicles with minors on board, or closed work areas, as well as obstructing investigators and failing to put up a no-smoking sign as appropriate.But such infractions will only be fined with €85 fines, although administrative fines may also be imposed.Akel said the overall changes made by ruling Disy “weakened” the effort the government made through the original bill.“It is obvious that there were attempts to satisfy big interests through amendments,” Akel leader Andros Kyprianou said.“What has come out of this vote does not serve public health, but big interests.”Diko leader Nicolas Papadopoulos argued that the law effectively renders the law “inactive”, as smoking will essentially be allowed everywhere.“The end result serves the interests of specific shop-owners,” he said.The Greens’ leader Giorgos Perdikis said that, while the initial bill was for the most part positive, legislative amendments in the end undermined it.“I believe a big loop-hole has been opened, particularly with the 30-per-cent amendment,” he said.In a statement after the vote, Disy censured opposition parties, particularly Akel and Diko, for voting in favour of some of the amendments but against the bill in its entirety, and noted that opposing the bill meant incurring a fine for Cyprus.“We cannot refrain from commenting that, while Akel and Diko voted in favour of amendments to the bill, in the end they voted against the bill itself,” the party said.“These actions suggest that they are indifferent, first of all to the possibility of incurring a fine in the millions for the country from the European Commission, but, even worse, they would allow the continuation of smoking at schoolyards, indoor playgrounds, and even hospitals.”Disy said that Friday’s vote marked a significant step toward introducing a comprehensive political regulation of smoking, with “full respect to smokers and non-smokers, and without overlooking the particular characteristics of our country”.You May LikeHeart Failure Treatment | Search AdsThe Early Signs Of
