Ingraham returns to work complains about censorship

first_imgNEW YORK, N.Y. – Fox News Channel’s Laura Ingraham returned to work with defiance Monday, denouncing a “Stalinist” effort by liberals to stifle the free speech of conservatives and promising to make fighting it her new cause.She made no mention of the advertisers who had abandoned her own program after she tweeted that a survivor of the Parkland, Florida school shooting had “whined” about not getting in to some colleges he had applied for.That high school senior, David Hogg, responded by suggesting that people offended by Ingraham’s remark contact her advertisers. Some 19 companies responded by saying they wouldn’t air commercials on Ingraham’s show.Ingraham was on vacation for a week after apologizing via social media for her tweet. She hasn’t discussed that episode with her viewers specifically, but it didn’t take much reading between the lines to realize it was on her mind Monday. Ingraham even played a video clip of Bill Maher saying some liberals have defended free speech; Maher last week came out against a boycott of Ingraham’s program.She said that “left wing retaliatory hit squads” respond to speech that makes them uncomfortable by trying to evict opponents from the public square instead of debating their ideas.“The free speech clause to our Constitution doesn’t just apply to speech our elites deem acceptable,” she said.Hogg has been among the most vocal of the Parkland students arguing in favour of stricter laws on gun safety; Ingraham has resisted stricter gun laws.Ingraham’s show was light on advertisements Monday. But some sponsors stuck with her, with ads running for a visiting nurse service, a floor covering company, a debt relief company, a weight reduction drink, a knife sharpener and a pillow manufacturer.Ingraham said she would feature stories in coming weeks about conservatives who she says are fighting attempts to silence them.“We will never relent and we will never give in,” she said. “Never.”last_img read more

Liberals want mayors of Mississauga Oakville to testify on cancelled gas plants

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Keith Leslie, The Canadian Press Posted Mar 5, 2013 4:00 am MDT Liberals want mayors of Mississauga, Oakville to testify on cancelled gas plants TORONTO – Ontario’s Liberals want the mayors of Mississauga and Oakville to be among the first to testify before a legislative committee looking into the party’s decisions to cancel gas plants in both cities.Liberal sources say Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion and Oakville’s Rob Burton top the party’s list of witnesses to be called before the justice committee, which will resume hearings Thursday.The Liberals want the mayors and leaders of citizen activist groups to talk about the extent of local opposition to the gas-fired generating stations.The Progressive Conservatives plan to call former energy minister Chris Bentley and Peter Wallace, the secretary of cabinet, in addition to former House of Commons speaker Peter Milliken.The New Democrats want to call Jamison Steeve, Dalton McGuinty’s former principal secretary along with energy experts.Each party has been asked to submit a list of its first five witnesses to be called before the committee, which had its mandate broadened to examine all aspects of the cancelled gas plants.The Tories also plan to call McGuinty and his successor, Kathleen Wynne, who was Liberal campaign co-chair when the Mississauga plant was halted in mid-construction.Wynne has said she would be willing to appear before the committee and promised to release all the documents and other information the opposition parties request.Earlier Tuesday, the Liberals escaped one of two contempt motions over the release of documents on cancelled gas plants when Speaker Dave Levac ruled they did not intentionally mislead the legislature.It’s clear then-energy minister Chris Bentley and other Liberal cabinet ministers were wrong last September to repeatedly insist all the gas plant documents had been released, when another 20,000 pages turned up in October, said Levac.“While this sequence of events certainly demonstrates that some statements were incorrect when they were made, I accept that they were believed to be true at the time, not made with the intention of misleading the house,” Levac said in his ruling.“There is no evidence before me that would support a contrary opinion. I find that a prima facie case of contempt on the basis that a member has deliberately misled the house has not been established.”The Progressive Conservatives said the Liberals got off on a “technicality” because it’s very difficult to prove a member has misled the legislature on purpose.“They did mislead the house, but the threshold for proving that they intentionally misled the house is very, very high and has only been met a couple times in parliamentary history,” said PC house leader Jim Wilson.The Tories filed two contempt motions against the Liberals last fall — one for claiming all the gas plant documents had been released and the other for refusing to comply with a committee request to release the documents in the first place.Both motions died when McGuinty prorogued the legislature Oct. 15 and announced his retirement, but were refiled by the Opposition when the house resumed sitting last month with Wynne in the premier’s chair.The justice committee will still investigate the original contempt motion regarding the release of the gas plant documents, where the Speaker had ruled last fall that there was a “prima facie breach of privilege.”The Tories and New Democrats believe the cost of the gas plant cancellations will be much higher than the $230 million the Liberals claim, and are convinced there are still more documents that have not been made public.Wynne has admitted cancelling the gas plants was a political decision by the Liberal campaign team. read more

75 per cent of respondents never heard of biggest free trade deal

75 per cent of respondents never heard of biggest free trade deal yet: poll OTTAWA – It’s the biggest free trade deal Canadians never heard of.A new poll suggests three in four Canadians have no idea that Canada is one of 12 countries immersed in negotiations for the Trans-Pacific Partnership.The poll was conducted by Environics Research Group for Trade Justice Network, an umbrella group dedicated to challenging the secretive process by which international trade deals are generally negotiated.Fully 75 per cent of respondents said they had never heard of the TPP before being asked about it by the pollster.The telephone poll of 1,002 Canadians was conducted June 3-12 and is considered accurate within plus or minus 3.2 percentage points, 19 times in 20.The 12 countries involved in negotiations include the United States, Mexico, Australia, Japan, Chile, Vietnam and Singapore; they represent a market of almost 800 million people and a combined gross domestic product of more than $25 trillion.The federal government maintains the TPP would enhance trade in the Asia-Pacific region, providing greater economic opportunity for Canadians.Trade Justice Network spokesman Martin O’Hanlon called it “deeply disturbing” that so few Canadians are aware of the partnership talks.The network maintains the secret negotiations are being conducted with the guidance of multinational corporations and with no input from labour leaders, environmentalists or even MPs.“It’s frightening that this can happen in a democracy,” O’Hanlon said.Maude Barlow, head of the Council of Canadians, a group that opposes the TPP, said more Canadians need to know about the deal because it affects “our ability to set our own laws, and protect health care, family farms and the environment.”She blamed the government for not informing the public. “Unfortunately, negotiations are being held in secret and there is no public debate.”Max Moncaster, a spokesman for Trade Minister Ed Fast, said the government has consulted widely with the provinces and territories throughout the negotiations.“Our government was the one that introduced an unprecedented process for putting international treaties before the House of Commons,” Moncaster said in a statement.A former senior adviser to Fast said all trade deals are negotiated behind closed doors.“Of any big negotiation, whether it’s a union negotiation or a labour negotiation, I have yet to see one aired on CPAC or C-Span,” said Adam Taylor, an Ottawa trade consultant.“Critics of the secrecy, specifically, because of their own anti-trade views, they pinpoint that as the criticism.”But New Democrat trade critic Don Davies said that line of argument doesn’t cut it because U.S. lawmakers are allowed to view the draft text of the TPP as long as they abide by a strict confidentiality agreement.Davies said he’s been repeatedly rebuffed by the government when he’s made similar requests in Canada, including a personal appeal to Fast himself.“Your average American lawmaker can see the text of the TPP and I, as official Opposition trade critic, can’t,” said Davies.“The Conservatives have just taken secrecy to an extreme degree.”Taylor said trade deals are rarely top of mind for average Canadians, and generally only grab the attention of business groups or other parties with a direct interest.His firm, ENsight, conducted its own online poll of 1,200 Canadians in early June, and found that 40 per cent of respondents did not know which of four major trade agreements was most important to Canada.The North American Free Trade Agreement was ranked highest at 26 per cent, while the TPP was favoured by 12 per cent of respondents. by Mike Blanchfield, The Canadian Press Posted Jun 17, 2015 2:00 am MDT Last Updated Jun 17, 2015 at 2:43 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

In Jordan Ban stresses responsibility of Arab leaders to ensure Middle East

“The Secretary-General briefed the King about his meetings with Israeli and Palestinian leaders, in which he appealed to them to put an end to the continuing violence in Jerusalem, the West Bank and Israel,” indicated a readout issued by the Secretary-General’s spokesperson.He also reiterated the importance of reducing tensions at the holy places in Jerusalem and called for upholding the status quo in line with previous understandings between Israel and Jordan, and with respect to Jordan’s special role.The UN chief’s visit to the region comes in the wake of an uptick in violence since early September. A series of ever-more deadly clashes between Palestinians and Israelis, including Israeli security forces, has marked much of October, with incidents reported in more than 50 different locations, including in East Jerusalem, Ramallah, Hebron, Bethlehem, Jenin, Tulkarm and Nablus. read more

Source: Sinead O’Carroll/Twittercenter_img The trial is entering its final stage with closing arguments from both sides to be delivered over the next two days.Defence barrister Barry Roux will make his last arguments when Nel concludes.Both Pistorius and Steenkamp’s fathers are in the courtroom today for the first time. June Steenkamp, who has been seen on the benches for much of the hearing, is also in attendance.JudgeOnce both sides of the arguments have been heard, Judge Thokozile Masip is expected to set a date for the verdict to be delivered.Pistorius is accused of murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in his home in Pretoria on Valentine’s Day last year. He claims it was a mistaken shooting, however, the prosecution argues that he knew what he was doing and shot her after an argument.Pistorius faces 25 years to life in prison is found guilty of premeditated murder.

New I5 bridge section over Skagit River opens

first_imgMOUNT VERNON — Four months after the old span collapsed into the Skagit River, a new Interstate 5 bridge section was installed and cleared for traffic Sunday.Crews swapped a temporary 500-ton span with a 900-ton permanent one.The bridge, which was closed overnight for the installation, reopened to traffic at 2 p.m. Sunday, the state Department of Transportation said.The original target hour for the reopening was 7 a.m., but the complicated swap took longer than expected.On May 23, an oversize truck load hit the bridge, sending one 160-foot section and two vehicles with three people into the water. No one was killed.Traffic was detoured for a month until a temporary span was installed.The collapse severed one of the state’s key transportation links, carrying roughly 70,000 vehicles a day.The cost of removing the temporary span and installing a permanent replacement is $8.5 million — paid by federal emergency relief funds.last_img read more

Israeli health advocate pens prayer to encourage vaccination

first_img Share This! Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,JERUSALEM (RNS) — In early spring, as the worldwide measles outbreak was raging, an Orthodox Israeli woman wrote a prayer to encourage religious parents to vaccinate their children.“I’ve come across a lot of people who do vaccinate, but they often feel conflicted,” said the prayer’s author, Hannah Katsman, a lactation therapist in central Israel. “I wrote the prayer to help them see vaccines as a positive thing to be grateful for and not something to fear.”“Prayer Before a Vaccination” was published in English and Hebrew by the Open Siddur Project.Hannah Katsman, an Orthodox Israeli lactation therapist, has written a prayer on the occasion of vaccination. She wrote the prayer to help parents see vaccines as a positive thing to be grateful for and not something to fear. Photo courtesy of Hannah KatsmanThe prayer asks that the vaccines being given “bring health, blessing and redemption, and protect us from suffering and terrible diseases” and asks God to bless the nurses and doctors who provide vaccines with a “long and peaceful life, financial security and success.”Katsman said members of a Hebrew-language pro-vaccination Facebook group, where she is active, urged her to write the prayer as the number of measles cases in Israel and elsewhere — particularly in some ultra-Orthodox enclaves — began to skyrocket. Jerusalem, New York and New Jersey have had serious outbreaks.“These outbreaks were an impetus,” Katsman told Religion News Service. “Pockets of the Orthodox community were being hit hard,” largely due to the communities’ high birthrates and higher-than-average percentage of babies too young to vaccinate.Although a small number of rabbis forbade their followers from vaccinating their children, the vast majority of community leaders openly endorsed vaccination.Katsman, a public-health advocate, also wanted to pay tribute to the health professionals “who are working on the front lines, sometimes under threat,” to eradicate preventable diseases like measles and polio.She dedicated the prayer to the memory of her brother Dr. Sholom Wacholder, a biostatistician “who was instrumental in the development of the vaccine to prevent cancers caused by HPV.”This week, an official at one of Israel’s four HMOs asked Katsman’s permission to post the prayer in well-baby clinics throughout the country.“This is exactly what I was hoping for,” Katsman said. “I also hope the prayer will be translated into Yiddish.”That language is spoken by many ultra-Orthodox Jews.Katsman doesn’t expect to change the opinion of the strongest anti-vaxxers.“My hope is that I can give comfort to those seeking it.” News • Photos of the Week As Amazon burns, Vatican prepares for summit on region’s faith and sustainabilit … August 30, 2019 Michele Chabin,Add Comment Click here to post a comment Photos of the Week August 30, 2019 Michele Chabin Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.,‘A Dog’s Journey’ brings Bruce Cameron’s Bailey back to life � … By: Michele Chabin Share This!

Loot Drop Episode 9 E3 2014 Swag

first_imgI’m back from E3 2014, and I brought a sack full of goodies from the show floor. E3 is always a good show to get t-shirts, hats, and other goofy swag, and that was definitely the case this year. Watch the video for a full round-up.For headgear, I picked up a Farming Simulator trucker hat and a steampunk top hat from Snail Games’ “Black Gold.” You can tell it’s steampunk because they glued gears to it. And this seems very relevant. Snail Games also gave away Black Gold bags and Age of Wushu handkerchiefs. So where’s the kung-fu steampunk MMO?Microsoft gave away Phantom Dust t-shirts, Warner Bros. gave away Batman: Arkham Knight t-shirts, and I even picked up a Broforce shirt from Devolver Digital. The Video Games Voters Network also gave away t-shirts, and I would have brought back a Super Smash Bros. t-shirt as well, but I discovered at Nintendo’s booth that I’m not very good at the game.Microsoft and Ubisoft had some of the most unintentionally goofy “swag” of the show. They gave away electronic wristbands for their press conferences. During the conferences, they lit up and flashed different colors in time with the presentation. Afterwards, they’re just light-up wristbands that flash between white and either blue or green. They were pointless, but I can safely say I hadn’t seen them before.Watch the video for a look at all the stuff they give away at the show. It’s an interesting experience, to say the least!last_img read more

This Company Is Now the Largest in the World to Accept Bitcoin

first_img Paying for your pizza in Bitcoin is cute – a mildly cool feat to humblebrag about. But footing the bill for your monthly satellite TV in the digital cash is way more legit.If you’re a DISH Network subscriber, come this summer, you’ll be able to do just that. The multi-billion dollar satellite TV titan today announced that it will start accepting Bitcoin payments beginning in July.Today’s DISH Bitcoin headlines might not seem like a big deal to you, but they’re music to Bitcoin backers’ ears. This news marks a pretty huge milestone for the world’s first cryptocurrency, marking another pivotal step toward it becoming mainstream.Related: How Bitcoin Is Fueling a New Payments BattlefieldEnough gushing: Let’s get back to the details. DISH said it has tasked Coinbase, a San Francisco-based global Bitcoin wallet and merchant service, with processing its Bitcoin payments. We’re not sure yet if there will be an extra fee for paying in Bitcoin. We hope not because that would definitely be a turnoff.So why would a big-corporate fish like DISH throw its weight behind Bitcoin? For one, the content-provider is all about “choice.” So by providing a new payment option, DISH is allowing customers more selection — a move that could help the company stand out from its lower-cost competitors like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon. Plus, the Blockbuster parent company can use it as a way to position itself as cutting-edge and “in touch” with what younger, streaming-savvy consumers want, a maneuver to keep current subscribers and attract new ones.Related: Yelp Now Points Users to Businesses That Accept Bitcoin as Payment“We always want to deliver choice and convenience for our customers and that includes the method they use to pay their bills,” Bernie Han, DISH Network’s chief executive officer CEO and executive vice president, said in a statement issued today. “Bitcoin is becoming a preferred way for some people to transact and we want to accommodate those individuals.”In a about a month, when DISH’s first Bitcoin payments start flowing in (and they will), the Englewood, Colo.-based Fortune 200 corporation will join the ranks of a growing lineup of big-name early Bitcoin payment adopters, like OKCupid, Overstock.com, Reddit, TigerDirect and WordPress. Not to mention the more than 50,000 other merchants also currently accepting the cryptocurrency.Related: Square Market Now Takes Bitcoin PaymentsDISH stands out from the pack, though, as it will soon own the bragging rights to being the biggest company in all of the world yet to accept Bitcoin. That is until another mega brand steps up and takes its place.And one will. It’s not a matter of time, it’s a matter of who.Could it be eBay?

This newly developed product, named by Popular Science Magazine as one of 2012’s best new innovations, is now available for use with SonoSite M-Turbo Ultrasound Systems.The launch comes with the news that SonoSite has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market and sell specialized ultrasound transducers equipped with AxoTrack Technology engineered by Soma Access Systems LLC.AxoTrack combines ultrasound with advanced magnetics to provide users with real-time visual updates of needle location as it travels through tissue to the intended target. The easy-to-use, “point-and-shoot” design can save time and may significantly improve procedure outcomes, particularly for vascular access. Pre-existing patient health conditions, like low blood pressure, can increase the risk of complications during these procedures. The ability to simply line up the target line with the vessel and then track the “virtual needle” into the vessel can improve patient safety and the confidence of ultrasound users performing guided procedures.The AxoTrack System — designed for rapid ease of use — is composed of a specially designed ultrasound transducer from SonoSite and a single-use sterile procedure kit from Soma Access Systems LLC.“AxoTrack Needle Guidance Technology for SonoSite Systems brings a timely solution to health systems. By reducing vascular access time and enhancing patient safety, AxoTrack can ultimately reduce procedural risks and costs at a time when all of these points really matter to health systems,” said Kevin M. Goodwin, SonoSite’s president and CEO. “It is well recognized that ultrasound visualization improves the accuracy and safety of deep needle-based procedures. AxoTrack takes this to a new level by reducing the spatial coordination required when a needle tip is typically not seen. Now physicians can observe the ‘virtual needle’s’ movement on the screen so they can be more accurate and avoid observed critical structures such as the carotid artery or the lung pleura.“We are confident this ‘point-and-shoot’ technology will significantly improve outcomes and also make guided procedures far more approachable for new users by addressing the coordination challenges sometimes faced with ultrasound needle guidance.”An in vitro study using AxoTrack resulted in vascular access procedures that were successful on the first pass and first stick 99.3 percent of the time versus just 37.1 percent of the time when compared to the standard freehand method for ultrasound-guided central venous access.[1]“For the first time, clinicians have clear sight of needle location as it moves inside the human body,” said Dexter Hagy, president and CEO of Soma Access Systems LLC. “This means fewer passes for difficult-to-reach targets, greater success rates, and increased physician confidence, setting a new standard of care throughout the medical industry.”After nearly a decade of research and development, Soma Access Systems has refined AxoTrack into a simple and highly effective tool for a variety of ultrasound-guided procedures.Concludes Goodwin, “The SonoSite collaboration with Soma to bring AxoTrack to market adds a new degree of safety, accuracy, and cost-effectiveness for health systems.
