Judge rules 25 gift card terms from Loblaw Companies Ltd not misleading

first_imgTORONTO – An Ontario judge has ruled that it’s too early to determine the enforceability of Loblaw Companies Ltd.’s policy that consumers who receive a $25 gift card from the company waive their right to that sum in possible future settlement money from a bread price-fixing scheme class-action lawsuit.Ontario Superior Court of Justice Edward M. Morgan dismissed a motion challenging the terms of Loblaw’s gift card plan.The company announced Monday that registrants must agree to a release saying they discharge Loblaw (TSX:L), its parent company George Weston (TSX:WN) and others from relief to the extent of $25 in connection with their involvement in an alleged bread price-fixing arrangement from Jan. 1, 2002 to March 1, 2015.Morgan said in his ruling that he’s not in a position to know what, if any, an eventual settlement will entail, so it’s too soon to declare the release enforceable or not.Loblaw spokesman Kevin Groh says the “ruling puts to rest the nonsensical claim by class-action lawyers that our $25 Loblaw Card is misleading and confusing,” when the company is trying to put money in affected consumers’ hands quickly.The law firm which brought the action in front of the court, Strosberg Sasso Sutts LLP, says the ruling is a victory for consumers as Loblaw will not be able to deduct the gift card value from any future settlement pay out “unless it demonstrates that it is fair to consumers as part of an overall resolution of their price-fixing claims.”last_img read more

New UN office utilizing space information to mitigate disasters opens in Bonn

31 October 2007UN AffairsA new United Nations Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) office tasked with utilizing space technologies to respond to all stages of disasters globally has opened in Bonn, Germany. A new United Nations Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) office tasked with utilizing space technologies to respond to all stages of disasters globally has opened in Bonn, Germany.The new office – expected to be the first of several – aims to carry out the UN Platform for Space-based Information for Disaster Management and Emergency Response (UN-SPIDER).Unlike other recent initiatives where space-based information is used for humanitarian and emergency response, UN-SPIDER is the first to employ the technologies to cover all stages of disaster, including the risk reduction phase which could significantly cut the loss of lives and property.UN-SPIDER will provide universal access to all countries and interested organizations to space-based information and services on disaster management “and will have a considerable impact on the way space-based information is used in dealing with disasters around the world,” said Franz Baumann, Deputy Director-General of the UN Office at Vienna.The programme, established by the UN General Assembly last December, hopes to assist countries and organizations by acting as a gateway to space-based information for disaster management support and facilitate developing countries in their capacity-building and institutional strengthening efforts.UN-SPIDER offices are also scheduled to open in Beijing and Geneva. read more

Young leaders from around the world to promote development goals at 3day

“Young delegates will focus on ways of using their youthful energy and their technological skills to tackle major socio-economic challenges,” said Djibril Diallo, Director of the UN New York Office of Sport for Development and Peace, which is organizing the summit that runs until Tuesday.The focus of the meeting will be how best to attain the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which are an ambitious series of targets set by the UN Millennium Summit of 2000, seeking to reduce extreme poverty, hunger, maternal and infant mortality, lack of access to education, as well as other social ills all by 2015.Each of the Member States will be represented at the summit by two delegates – a young woman and a young man – and the use of sport and culture will be emphasized as ways of encouraging the world’s youth to become more involved in the fight for development, the UN said in a press release.“These young community leaders have the biggest stake in making progress towards the Millennium Development Goals because attaining the Goals will help create a better world for their generation and those following. They will employ the ideas, networks and initiatives from their summit brainstorming to help launch a new decade of bold cooperation,” said Mr. Diallo.The summit will be the first time that many countries fulfil pledges to include young people and their views at the UN, and the youth delegates will then become spokespersons for the MDGs in their home countries.Secretary-General Kofi Annan will open the summit in the General Assembly chamber, and this will be followed on Sunday by a panel discussion involving UN agency heads, and then a Youth United against Malaria Concert with celebrated singer Youssou N’Dour of Senegal and other stars.The delegates will break into groups on Monday to discuss such issues as poverty and job creation; education, gender and maternal health care; and youth and peacebuilding. The event will conclude on Tuesday with the adoption of a Summit Declaration. read more

Preventing violent extremism promoting human rights go handinhand Ban tells Washington summit

“Let there be no doubt,” Mr. Ban proclaimed to a room full of high-level delegates including US Secretary of State John Kerry, “The emergence of a new generation of transnational terrorist groups including Da’esh [or the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant] and Boko Haram is a grave threat to international peace and security.” Among those joining Mr. Ban on the panel of the White House Summit on ‘Countering Violent Extremism’ were US Deputy National Security Adviser, Tony Blinken, Deputy Director of the US National Counterterrorism Center, Nicholas Rasmussen, French Interior Minister, Bernard Cazeneuve, Jordanian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nasser Judeh, Professor at London’s King’s College, Peter Neumann, and Commissioner for Peace and Security at the African Union, Smaïl Chergui.In his address, the Secretary-General said no cause or grievance can justify the “unspeakable horrors” that terrorist groups are carrying out against innocent people, the majority of whom are Muslim. Women and girls, he added, are particularly subject to systemic abuses – rape, kidnapping, forced marriage and sexual slavery. “These extremists are pursuing a deliberate strategy of shock and awe – beheadings, burnings, and snuff films designed to polarize and terrorize, and provoke and divide us,” the UN chief added, commending UN Member States for their political will to defeat terrorist groups and at the same time, urging them to stay “mindful of the pitfalls.” “Many years of our experience have proven that short-sighted policies, failed leadership and an utter disregard for human dignity and human rights have causes tremendous frustration and anger on the part of people who we serve,” the UN chief said. He outlined what he called four imperatives to deal with violent extremism. First, the world must look for motivations behind such ideologies and conflict. While this has proven over and over again to be a “notoriously difficult exercise,” it is vital to realize that poisonous ideologies do not emerge from thin air – oppression, corruption and injustice fuels extremism and violence. “Extremist leaders cultivate the alienation that festers. They themselves are pretenders, criminals, gangsters, thugs on the farthest fringes of the faiths they claim to represent. Yet they prey on disaffected young people without jobs or even a sense of belonging where they were born. And they exploit social media to boost their ranks and make fear go viral,” Mr. Ban said. Second on the list of essentials to combat extremism is promoting human rights. The Secretary-General warned against “sweeping definitions” of terrorism that too often criminalize the legitimate actions of opposition groups, civil society organizations and human rights defenders. “Governments should not use the fight against terrorism and extremism as a pretext to attack one’s critics. Extremists deliberately seek to incite such over-reactions. And we must not fall into those traps,” he said. Third, preventing violent extremism requires a multi-pronged approach. While military operations are crucial, they are not the entire solution. “Bullets are not the silver bullet,” Mr. Ban said, emphasizing that while missiles may kill terrorists, good governance kills terrorism. “Human rights, accountable institutions, the equitable delivery of services, and political participation – these are among our most powerful weapons,” the Secretary-General stressed. Combating extremism must start in the classroom, he added. Education must play a decisive role and children must be taught compassion, diversity and empathy. Finally, the fourth priority is recognizing that violent extremism is a global challenge. It transcends borders. No single country can defeat terrorism. Rather all country must come together – ‘join hands’– to win the battle against violent extremism. The UN Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy, which was adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2006, provides such a comprehensive framework. And last September, in a meeting chaired by US President Barack Obama, the Security Council adopted a resolution further strengthening collective efforts. Mr. Ban also expressed concern over the connection between anti-immigration forces and extremists who feed off each other in a ‘death spiral of intolerance.’ The UN will present a plan of action to prevent violent extremism to its General Assembly later this year, the Secretary-General said. A special event will be held in the coming months to bring together faith leaders to send a message of tolerance and solidarity. “I take heart when I read of a Muslim clerk spiriting Jewish patrons to safety in a Paris grocery store…or when Christians open a cathedral to Muslims fleeing carnage in the Central African Republic…or when thousands counter terrible bloodshed with marches of solidarity from Copenhagen to Chapel Hill,” Mr. Ban concluded.Among his activities on the margins of the Summit, the Secretary-General discussed the situation in Libya with Secretary of State Kerry; the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, and Vice-President of the European Commission, Federica Mogherini; and the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Egypt, Mr. Sameh Hassan Shokry Selim.They expressed deep concern over the situation in the North African country and stressed the importance of political dialogue as the only way out of the current crisis. They fully supported the efforts of the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Libya, Bernardino León, to facilitate dialogue. They emphasized the importance for all parties to participate in the next round of talks.The UN chief also met with Dr. Nabil El-Araby, Secretary General of the League of Arab States; as well as with Moussa Faki Mahamat, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Chad; with Iyad Ameen Madanim, Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation; and with Abdul Hassan Mahmood Ali, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Bangladesh. read more

Scandalous Jason Kidd on Probation For Drunk Driving

Brooklyn Nets head coach Jason Kidd has pleaded guilty to a drunk driving charge he received last summer.A judge placed Kidd on interim probation after his plea to a misdemeanor drunken-driving charge. In an effort to turn the negative incident into a positive, the judge also ordered the coach to speak to Long Island, New York, high school students about the dangers of drunken driving.Kidd was arrested on July 15, 2012, by Southampton Town police. They say he smashed his Cadillac SUV into a telephone pole in the hamlet of Water Mill. Police reports stated he smelled of alcohol and his eyes were bloodshot and glassy.Kidd retired as an NBA player after last season and was hired to coach the Nets. He took the team to two NBA Finals as a player when the franchise played in New Jersey. read more

Football Kendall Sheffield adds to stout incoming secondary for Ohio State

Even with key losses in the secondary to the NFL draft, Ohio State football has reason to smile Tuesday following the announcement of another top cornerback. This time, Kendall Sheffield has decided to become a Buckeye.Sheffield, a former five-star recruit and Alabama player who redshirted his freshman year with the Crimson Tide and played for Blinn College last year, picked OSU over Texas A&M. Although he picked off two passes last year, he excelled as a returner, picking up two special teams touchdowns.According to 247Sports.com, Sheffield is the No. 1 junior college cornerback and a four-star recruit in the 2017 recruiting class.With the latest commitment, OSU now has three of the top cornerback recruits arriving in Columbus. Although Malik Hooker and Gareon Conley are now gone, with the possibility of redshirt junior cornerback Marshon Lattimore leaving, the Buckeyes have more than a few replacements arriving.Sheffield joins Jeffrey Okudah, Shaun Wade and four-star safety Isaiah Pryor as incoming freshmen who could see a real chance at playing time next year. Okudah is the No. 1 cornerback in the nation according to 247Sports.com, while Wade is the No. 4 cornerback. read more

Church sues over 911 destruction

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The Greek Orthodox church in Manhattan, St Nicholas, sued the public agency that owned the World Trade Centre on Monday, saying the agency reneged on a deal to rebuild a church that was destroyed in the 9/11 attacks.The church says the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey broke a 2008 promise to rebuild the St. Nicholas Church at a new location down the block from its old site. It also says the Port Authority has started excavating church property without permission as part of the new business and transportation complex at Ground Zero.“This is not about money, this is about their commitment to rebuild the only house of worship destroyed at Ground Zero,” church spokesman Mark Arey said.The Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America filed its lawsuit against the Port Authority in a US district court in Manhattan.The St. Nicholas Church was built in 1916 and was crushed when the World Trade Centre towers collapsed. As part of the neighbourhood’s reconstruction, the Port Authority proposed a swap of the church property for a piece of land down the street so that the agency could build a centre for screening vehicles. In exchange, the agency would give the church millions of dollars to build a bigger church.The church says the two sides had mostly agreed on the terms when the Port Authority abruptly pulled out of talks in 2009. The Port Authority claims the church was demanding too much money.“After eight months of negotiations in which the demands of the Orthodox Church continued to increase over and above what was originally agreed to in 2008, the Port Authority had to make a practical decision to move on or risk further delaying the entire World Trade Centre project,” the agency said in a written statement.The Port Authority has said it offered $20 million of financing, plus as much as $40 million to cover extra costs related to the construction of a Port Authority parking lot under the church. It claims the church wanted a building six times bigger than its original one.The church said that was only fair because it was giving up the valuable “air rights” over its original site. Air rights allow builders to put skyscrapers on small pieces of land.In addition, about one-third of the new church would have been a memorial area for people of all faiths to gather, Arey said.Source: Associated Presslast_img read more

Le soja vert gagne peu à peu du terrain

first_imgLe soja “vert” gagne peu à peu du terrainLa culture écologique du soja tend à se développer et ce malgré des débuts difficiles. Ce qui n’était qu’une belle théorie prend peu à peu tournure.La culture du soja a un impact considérable sur l’environnement. Pour résoudre ce problème qui concerne essentiellement l’Amérique du Sud où la déforestation est massive, quelques producteurs, industriels et le WWF se sont regroupés en 2006 pour créer le RTRS, la table ronde sur le soja responsable.Cette dernière a fixé une trentaine de critères à respecter parmi lesquels figurent l’interdiction d’utiliser des terres déboisées pour la culture du soja, le respect de certains critères environnementaux (une limite est fixée pour les intrants chimiques par exemple) et sociaux (le travail des enfants est proscrit). Cité par l’AFP, Brice Patentreger, de WWF France souligne ainsi : “vu l’ampleur pris par le phénomène du soja, il était temps de prendre les choses en main, c’est un véritable enjeu mondial”. En effet, près de 250 millions de tonnes de soja sont produites annuellement. En comparaison, les 300.000 tonnes de soja certifié durable pour sa première année de commercialisation, font pâle figure.Aujourd’hui, les choses commencent néanmoins à prendre véritablement tournure. “Jusqu’ici tout cela était de la théorie et maintenant nous devons en faire une réalité. Ce sont les débuts donc ce n’est pas simple mais nous pensons vraiment pouvoir atteindre 5 millions de tonnes vendus dans trois ans”, explique Agustin Mascotana, directeur général de RTRS. Pour autant la mise en place ne semble pas aisée. “Cela n’a pas été facile de convaincre des producteurs et le problème c’est que les petits paysans qui déboisent sont tellement loin de tous nos principes qu’il est impossible de les toucher”, explique Joao Shimada du groupe Maggi au Brésil. C’est de ce pays, de l’Argentine, du Paraguay et de l’Inde que proviennent les premières tonnes de soja durable. Un refus des Etats-UnisÀ lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Or, le prix pose également certains problèmes. Jose Born un producteur argentin, qui a déjà fait certifié une partie de sa culture de soja RTRS indique avoir “conscience de notre devoir en tant qu’agriculteur envers les générations futures”. Mais, comme il le souligne, “pour l’instant la certification RTRS ne nous permet pas de réaliser des marges suffisantes et quand on voit que le prix du soja s’envole, on s’interroge forcément”.Car si les principaux pays ont donc choisi de franchir le pas, reste l’exception notable des Etats-Unis le plus important de tous les producteurs. M. Mascotana le reconnaît sans mal, “à terme il faudra que l’on puisse les inclure si l’on veut vraiment peser sur le marché”. D’autant plus que ce soja “vert” est également vu d’un mauvais œil de la part de nombreuses associations écologistes, qui sont en désaccord avec le WWF. Ils dénoncent notamment la certification RTRS qui entretient la monoculture du soja et ne remet en cause ni la dépendance de l’Europe en alimentation animale importée, ni un modèle de production intensive de la viande (le soja sert à nourrir les bêtes sous forme de tourteaux). Par-dessus tout, la certification n’a pas exclu le soja OGM pourtant majoritaire dans le monde. Le WWF plaide sa cause en précisant que mettre les OGM de côté c’est se priver de l’essentiel du marché, d’autant plus que l’organisation insiste pour qu’une branche de la certification soit réservée pour le soja non OGM.Le 26 mai 2012 à 17:45 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

It seems likely that the new headset would not require external trackers, as with the recently announced Oculus Rift S, though that’s not entirely supported by the single image. It’s also impossible to tell if this headset would require a PC or be a standalone device like the Oculus Quest.The fact that there’s no mention of HTC, which teamed up with Valve for the HTC Vive, means it’s likely that this will be a Valve-only product.last_img read more

High quality images of possible Nintendo NX controller leak

first_imgLast week we posted a story about leaked images of the possible controller for Nintendo’s upcoming console, codenamed “NX.” Our very own Matthew Humphries, who wrote that original post, was skeptical of the authenticity of the images since they were very blurry, and because the original poster, who claimed to be a game developer, couldn’t provide proof that he or she had access to a Nintendo NX development kit. Today, more leaked images of the NX controller have popped up online. The higher quality images and appear to show off a genuine piece of hardware.According to the post on Reddit (where the images originate), “Only the upper ‘nubs’ of the sticks move. The bottom part is static (kind of like the circle pad, but it moves along the bottom ‘sphere’.” The post says that the rollers on the top look and feel similar to a mouse scroll wheel, and that the controller’s haptic feedback feels more like Apple’s “taptic” engine and not like typical rumble. The controller has a 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom.These leaked images were posted by a user going by the handle of perkele37. The poster didn’t provide any information with regards to who they were or how they obtained these images. If you click on the name, it only brings you to the NX post in question, which means this is the first time the user is posting on Reddit.While we still don’t have any definitive proof of what the NX controller will look like, this latest leak jives with the images that were posted last week, and of the leaked patent for the controller from late last year. Given Nintendo’s penchant for creating odd-looking controllers, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the final design of the NX controller looks exactly like the leaked images suggest, despite the uncomfortable-looking shape.last_img read more

Given the current field-of-view available for this system and its unique potential for fast dynamic imaging, first applications are expected in brain, bone and pediatric imaging. A large field-of-view option for G-SPECT is already under development.SPECT and positron emission tomography (PET) are two of the most important molecular imaging modalities in use for diagnosis and therapy follow-up. Today, SPECT imaging is applied to millions of patients each year. Although SPECT is a very useful tool, current resolution of typically 7-10 mm can limit diagnostic precision. MILabs has shown that this can be changed: The new G-SPECT has high sensitivity and far superior resolution compared to current clinical SPECT systems and has fast dynamic imaging capabilities.WMIS asked members of the industry to submit abstracts for this award and six semi-finalists were chosen to present their innovation at WMIC. Semi-finalists were given three minutes to present, then the audience was given the opportunity to vote on the innovation of their choice. The six semi-finalists were selected from 28 submissions following a scientific review by unbiased reviewers. Two other innovations recognized as finalists for the 2015 Commercial Innovation of the Year Award:Jeff Harford of LI-COR was selected as first runner-up for his abstract titled, "Targeted Photodestruction of Tumors Using Bioconjugates of Near-Infrared IRDye 700DX."The second runner-up was Christian Wiest of iThera for his abstract titled, "The world's first tomographic hybrid OPtoacoustic/UltraSound imaging technology."For more information: www.milabs.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Computed Tomography (CT) | June 17, 2019 International Working Group Releases New Multiple Myeloma Imaging Guidelines An International Myeloma Working Group (IMWG) has developed the first set of new recommendations in 10 years for... read more News | Interventional Radiology | July 31, 2019 International Multidisciplinary Group Publishes Recommendations for Personalized HCC Treatment With Y90 TheraSphere New consensus recommendations for personalized treatment for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with BTG’s TheraSphere have... read more News | Radiopharmaceuticals and Tracers | July 26, 2019 NorthStar Medical Radioisotopes Awarded $30 Million by U.S. Department of Energy NorthStar Medical Radioisotopes LLC has been awarded $15 million in a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of... read more News | Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) | June 07, 2019 Amsterdam University Medical Center Wins MR Solutions' Image of the Year Award The Amsterdam University Medical Center has won MR Solutions’ Image of the Year 2019 award for the best molecular... read morelast_img read more

Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impa

first_img Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Through the first two preseason games, the Cardinals have forced eight turnovers (four interceptions, four fumble recoveries), tied with Chicago for the most in the NFL.So, is there an art to taking the ball away?“An attitude. A willingness to do it,” cornerback Antoine Cason, the former UA Wildcat, answered. “That’s all it really takes is the awareness and the frame of mind to get that ball out. That’s what the coaches have been stressing, and that’s what we go out and try to do.”Even if it’s at the end of a play, as was the case when Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant was separated from the ball by cornerback Jerraud Powers, who had been beaten moments before for a 27-yard gain.“It’s just instincts that you just keep going to make a play,” said Cason, who is credited with four forced fumbles in his five-year career. “Of course, you’re not going to be happy with getting beat, but always finish.
