Exotic cats kept in dark dirty trailers seized from BC breeder

first_imgLITTLE FORT, B.C. — The British Columbia Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals says it has seized 13 exotic cats that were found in “horrific conditions” outside of Kamloops, B.C.The SPCA says in a statement that 10 adult serval cats and three kittens were taken from a breeder in Little Fort after it received complaints of sick and injured animals being sold.It says most of the African cats were being kept in RV trailers on the property and were exposed to high levels of ammonia from urine, with litter boxes overflowing with feces.The SPCA says there was no proper ventilation or access to water despite high temperatures, and no natural light because the windows were covered.The animals were removed with the help of a conservation officer and are being cared for at an undisclosed location.Marcie Moriarty, chief prevention and enforcement officer, says in a statement that the African cats require extensive space to run and a highly enriched environment to express natural play and hunting behaviours.“They are carnivores and require a very specialized diet to meet their physical needs, including proper bone development,” she says.“The idea of these beautiful wild animals being confined in captivity is disturbing enough, but in this case, the animals were kept indoors in substandard conditions without access to the outdoors or exercise.”Moriarty says the case fits with a trend of substandard breeders who have very attractive websites so buyers are unaware of how distressing the actual living conditions are for the animals.All interactions are online and buyers never visit the property, she says.In addition the 13 exotic cats, the SPCA also seized two dogs and one domestic cat in distress from the same property.Serval cats are not included in the provincial controlled alien species legislation, which means their breeding is not regulated.The investigation is ongoing but the SPCA says it will recommend charges of animal cruelty in the case.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Jury in Top Chef case says 1 member is assuming guilt

by The Associated Press Posted Aug 14, 2017 1:01 pm MDT Last Updated Aug 14, 2017 at 1:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Jury in ‘Top Chef’ case says 1 member is assuming guilt BOSTON – The jury in the trial of four Teamsters accused of threatening and harassing the cast and nonunion crew of the TV reality show “Top Chef” has told the judge there is one juror who is “assuming guilt over innocence.”The note came on the third day of deliberations.In his note back to the jury, U.S. District Judge Douglas Woodlock said presumption of innocence “is a cardinal principle of our system of justice.”The Local 25 union members are accused of using strong-arm tactics in an attempt to extort jobs as drivers with union-scale wages.

SAMOA Apia welcomes thousands for UN conference

“It’s critically important for us to put our best foot forward and we have done just that,” chief executive of the conference Falalavauu Perina Sila told UN Radio following the flag raising. With cannons firing, the UN blue and the Samoan blue, red and white were hoisted over the Tuana’imato sports complex in a symbolic handing-over of the venue to the UN for the next several days. The site’s aquatic centre is used for accreditation, with photos for identification cards being taken next to diving boards and a lap pool. The hockey stadium has been temporarily converted into office space. Hanging bananas decorate walkways where joggers once stepped, and electric carts ride up and down the complex routes. On Friday afternoon, the site had more visiting families than delegates. The Third International Conference on Small Island Developing States is set to begin on 1 September, with a series of pre-conference forums on youth, private sector and civil society, organized mostly off-site. Safuneituuga Paaga Neri, surrounded by her grandchildren, was among those visiting the complex. “I wanted them to see this. It is historic,” she said. As part of the preparations for the conference, the school year was adjusted to give students a break, and free up more volunteers for the conference.In addition, residents have been decorating the villages between the Faleolo International Airport and Apia’s centre. Visitors are welcomed with flags, painted coconuts and flowers.Asked what she hoped the conference would bring, Ms. Neri’s answer turned to climate change. She stressed that partnerships must be created that will allow people living near the shores to withstand extreme weather and rising sea levels. Samoan journalist Andrew Fassau told UN Radio that the people he has interviewed in the run-up to the event are particularly concerned about the impact of climate change. “They hope that something good will come out of this conference with regard to the small island nations like us,” he said, adding that islanders are pointing to industrialized nations for causing the climate woes.The expectations held for this conference are seen outside of the sports complex gates, where Samoan police direct traffic on streets named “SIDS,” “welcome” and “hope.” In a Guardian opinion piece today, Prime Minister Tuilaepa Aiono Sailele Malielegaoi urged world leaders to help, warning that the Pacific islands are sinking.“I want world leaders to see for themselves what our islands are doing to deal with climate change, natural disasters and the tough economic challenges thrust upon us,” he wrote. The conference will also kick off a drum beat to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s climate change summit which will be held in September. Mr. Ban is due to visit tomorrow with a community that has been impacted by extreme weather, and see how Samoa is coping with these challenges. The theme of this year’s conference is creating “genuine and durable partnerships,” and more than 300 partnerships are expected to be announced, according to Under-Secretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs Wu Hongbo, who is the Secretary-General of the conference. In addition, more than 120 side and parallel events will be held in the city, which are likely to spur more collaborations, he told the UN News Centre last week. For the villages in Samoa, such as Fasito’o Uta, the importance of these partnerships and the conference can be summarized using the Samoan word for ‘welcome’: “Talofa to all delegates, welcome to paradise.” read more

Domestic travel expected to increase in light of 150th birthday celebrations

first_img Travelweek Group Domestic travel expected to increase in light of 150th birthday celebrations Wednesday, November 23, 2016 Tags: Canada, Trend Watch Sharecenter_img Posted by << Previous PostNext Post >> OTTAWA — Despite a stubbornly sluggish economy, travel to and within Canada has actually grown this year, thanks in large part to low gas prices and a weak Canadian dollar.According to The Conference Board of Canada’s latest Travel Markets Outlook for both national and metropolitan cities, overnight visits are on track to grow by 3% in 2016 and 2017. On top of the nearly 10% growth last year, overnight visits from the U.S. are expected to increase a further 7.8% this year, as many American travellers are choosing Canada – known as a safe travel destination – over competing destinations struggling with safety concerns.Similarly, overseas arrivals to Canada saw an increase of 8.7% this year, but are expected to cool slightly in 2017 to an estimated 6.4%.“The tourism sector is one of the handful benefiting from the low Canadian dollar. We’re seeing increased levels of both U.S. and international visitors that are nothing short of tremendous and restore much of the travel volume lost during the past decade,” said Greg Hermus, Associate Director for the Conference Board of Canada’s Canadian Tourism Research Institute.Next year’s domestic tourism numbers will receive a boost from several factors, including growing consumer confidence, increases in disposable income as well as major events, like the 150th anniversary of Confederation and Montreal’s 375th anniversary. Domestic pleasure travel is estimated to increase by 3.2% in 2017.Travel prices are forecasted to continue ramping up slowly with increases ranging between 2.1 and 2.3% between 2017 and 2020. While travellers were hit with a 3.7% increase for accommodations in 2016, a more moderate annual increase at a pace between 2 and 3% is expected across the forecast horizon. Travellers can also expect to spend between 2.1 and 2.4% more for food and beverage services.More news:  AMResorts has a new Sr. Dir. of Cdn. Sales & Consortia Rel’nsOf the nine Canadian cities covered in the ‘Travel Markets Outlook’s Metropolitan Focus’, most can count on tourism growth between 2-5% next year.Domestic overnight visits to Halifax are projected to increase by 2.8% before the end of the year, while overall visits should grow by 3.8%.HALIFAXDomestic overnight visits to the city are projected to increase by 2.8% before the end of the year, while overall visits should grow by 3.%.

The city will experience a 4.3% increase in overnight visits in 2016. As Montréal celebrates its 375th anniversary in 2017, a further increase of 5% is projected for overnight visits.QUEBEC CITYOvernight visits to Quebec City are expected to grow by 3.7% in 2016, with pleasure travel receiving a boost from the recently completed Videotron Centre, a multi-use indoor arena. Visits from the U.S. to the city are expected to grow by 8.9% this year amidst low gas prices and a favourable exchange rate.OTTAWA-GATINEAUWith sporting events such as the Canadian men’s curling championship and strong gains from international markets, overall visits to the city are estimated to increase by 3.4% in 2016. Celebration for the 150th anniversary of Confederation in 2017 will see overnight visits to the nation’s capital grow considerably.

Argentine Congress considers making street harassment crime

first_img“They shouted these things at me for an entire month,” the 20-year-old university student said in an interview with The Associated Press. “I couldn’t walk out of my house in peace.”Frustrated by something all too common in this South American country of 41 million, Rizzo in April posted a video on YouTube about her experience. She argued that verbal assaults could lead to physical abuse.The video, seen by half a million people, touched a nerve, turning Rizzo’s campaign into a cause celebre and prompting lawmakers to draft legislation that would make such street harassment a crime. A vote is expected within a few months.The moves come amid a national campaign protesting physical attacks against women. Tens of thousands of Argentines took to the streets last week in a march dubbed “ni una menos,” meaning not one more woman lost to gender violence.There are many contradictions in Argentina when it comes to gender equality. Women have equal rights under the law and there are more women than men enrolled in college. The country’s most powerful person is a woman — President Cristina Fernandez. But the macho culture of many Latin American countries is pervasive here as well. Top ways to honor our heroes on Veterans Day In this May 18, 2015 photo, Aixa Rizzo poses for a picture in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Legislators in Argentina are proposing an anti-catcalling law that could make the practice punishable with a fine. The recently proposed project was sparked by Rizzo, who posted a video online recounting her experience of verbal harassment at the hands of strangers. (AP Photo/Natacha Pisarenko) Top Stories Concern has been growing about increased violence against women, including a rise in reported cases of domestic abuse.In 2010, the Supreme Court created the Office of Domestic Violence to receive and evaluate claims of abuse. The first year, the office dealt with 7,437 cases. By 2014, the number had risen to 10,573, a 42 percent increase.There has also been a growth in the number of women killed in violent acts nationwide as well, according to Meeting House, an organization that works with battered women. It says that 277 women were killed violently last year, including in cases of rape and kidnapping, up from 208 in 2008, when it began to compile statistics.Other countries in the region have considered similar bans on lewd comments.Under a law passed in Peru in March, women can report street harassment and a judge then evaluates the claim and decides on a possible jail sentence.A catalyst for that legislation was an incident last year that scandalized the country. Peruvian singer and actress Magaly Solier claimed that a man masturbated behind her on a busy bus in Lima. The man was identified and Solier filed a police report. But a judge decided against pursuing charges, saying that because there was no physical contact, the complaint didn’t belong in court. Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall 3 international destinations to visit in 2019 BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — When she left her house each day, Aixa Rizzo would brace for a barrage of sexually laden comments from male electricians working on a project in her neighborhood.It started with under-the-breath remarks, applause and whistles, but over several weeks developed into vulgarities about her body and chants about sexual fantasies. One day, three of the men followed her, prompting Rizzo to turn around and shower them with pepper spray. The men swore at her and told her she was crazy, but they ultimately walked away. Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facilitycenter_img Four benefits of having a wireless security system Many men, from taxi drivers to construction workers to white collar workers, frequently whistle or say things when women walk by.“Lewd comments are just the tip of the iceberg that manifests itself in domestic violence,” said opposition congresswoman Victoria Donda, who has put forward legislation making such verbal taunts a crime.Under Donda’s bill, which includes funds to raise awareness about abuse in schools and workplaces, women could report sexual harassment in public places.A judge would then review the complaint, interview any witnesses, and decide whether a fine should be levied.The law is aimed at combatting aggressive sexual comments, not compliments about nice hair or clothes.However, Orlando Britez, a 23-year-old construction worker, worries that men could be punished if women interpret their comments as too aggressive.“It means I would have to hold it in, and not say what I really want to” when women pass by, Britez said from a Buenos Aires worksite.“If we say nice things, what’s wrong with that?” asked fellow construction worker Elio Borlio. “Things like, ‘Look at how beautiful you are.’”The bill appears to have wide support, including among ruling party lawmakers, and two similar proposals are being considered by the municipality of Buenos Aires, the country’s capital and largest city. 0 Comments   Share   Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Sponsored Stories In her video, Rizzo tells a similar story. After the pepper spray incident, she tried to file a police report, but was told the men couldn’t be charged because they never touched her.In a Facebook forum called “Action/Respect,” women share stories of men jeering, hissing and calling out to them.One woman recently wrote that men would shout at her even though she was six months pregnant.Beyond the potential for harm, many women say the harassment is simply infuriating.“If they say, ‘Nice smile,’ I laugh and just continue walking,” said Susana Godoy, a 20-year-old university student in Buenos Aires. “But I hate it when they say, ‘Hey, baby,’ and other gross stuff.”___Associated Press video journalist Paul Byrne contributed to this report.___The story has been corrected to note that the rise in domestic violence complaints is 42 percent, not 18 percent.Copyright © The Associated Press.

first_img Comments   Share   — Arizona Cardinals (@AZCardinals) August 31, 2015A rushing touchdown from running back Marion Grice sealed up the win.Here’s Sunday night’s game, by the numbers:39A 39-yard reception from John Brown was the signature play of the game for the Cardinals offense. The ball was a bit underthrown, possibly on purpose, which allowed Brown to slow down and rise up for the catch.2.1The Cardinals running game struggled to get going. Andre Ellington had 9 rushes for 19 yards, averaging only 2.1 yards per carry.3Mack only had three tackles in the game, but he was a humongous factor. He had two sacks and put Palmer under constant pressure, whether it was Jared Veldheer on the left or Bradley Sowell on the right, nobody could contain him.11The Cardinals had 11 tackles for loss, including three from Calais Campbell.4David Johnson had four rushes and four receptions. He had far more success in the pass game, averaging 10 yards per catch as opposed to -0.5 yards per carry.61Momah had three receptions for 61 yards. – / 25 A second half comeback from the Arizona Cardinals backups, highlighted by a game-winning drive, lifted the team to a 30-23 win over the Oakland Raiders.While the first-team offense struggled mightily for the Cardinals, the defense did not. The Raiders couldn’t take advantage in the first half, scoring 15 points on five field goals.Quarterback Carson Palmer had a rough first half, with two interceptions and the Raiders tremendous pass rusher Khalil Mack dominating the Cardinals offensive line. Palmer was consistently under pressure and wasn’t able to get in rhythm with his receivers.

Great performances from the secondary, particularly a couple of big plays from safety Tyrann Mathieu repeatedly had the Raiders settle for three-and-outs and field goals.A 15-3 score at halftime could have been much worse for the Cardinals and they took advantage.  An interception from rookie cornerback Cariel Brooks was returned 81 yards for a touchdown that got the Cardinals right back into the game.After that, a 12-play, 80-yard drive from backup quarterback Drew Stanton produced a touchdown and that was followed by another touchdown drive of 10 plays and 59 yards from quarterback Phillip Sims.The Raiders tied the game up at 23, but an end of the game drive from quarterback Logan Thomas was the difference. The hero of the drive was tight end Ifeanyi Momah, who had two catches where he refused to go down. Those extra yards Momah got kept the Cardinals alive and put them in field goal position.
