Read the concerns that the Native Womens Association of Canada has about

first_imgSend a copy of this email to yourselfIf you want to submit this form, do not enter anything in this field APTN National NewsOTTAWA — The Native Women’s Association of Canada released its analysis of the terms of reference (ToR) for the national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls announced Wednesday by Indigenous Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett.While supporting the need for the inquiry, NWAC President Dawn Harvard expressed concerns about a number of areas of the (ToR) that will guide Commissioners Marion Buller, Michéle Audette, Marilyn Poitras, Qajaq Robinson and Brian Eyolfson.Thursday the organization that was one of the first to put the issue of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls on the national agenda.1. The trauma informed and culturally based counseling appears to be limited to “the duration of their appearance before the Commission.” Trauma does not have a timeframe and we asked that families and survivors be provided with trauma informed and culturally based counselling services in their community as they get ready to present to the Inquiry, at the Inquiry and after presenting to the Inquiry. We learnt a lot from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission including that the telling of the story of trauma can further trigger trauma. Let’s use those lessons that we learned.2. There does not appear to be an opportunity for families to pursue or reopen cases through the justice system. In fact, for families who want to pursue cases or re-open ones that have been part of the justice system, the Terms of Reference direct that the support the Commissioners can offer is to redirect them to the appropriate provincial or territorial victim services. Families are not looking for mainstream counseling services through victim services but justice. This is a missed opportunity.3. There is no mention of the role of the provinces and territories and yet we know that some of the systemic issues will require provincial discussions, namely police services and the child welfare system. We cannot ignore what we know. Girls have described that they were sex trafficked from group homes and motels that are part of the child welfare system. We have a disproportionate number of Indigenous people who are in the criminal justice system. These issues are all interrelated and our expectation is that one reason we are having the Inquiry to address how these issues relate to violence against Indigenous women and girls.4. There is no explicit mention of the need to work with the justice partners in order to make appropriate recommendations to ensure that there are changes in that system. We cannot ignore the fact that many family members or survivors of violence do not feel that they were treated respectfully or fairly by the justice system.Got a comment? Send it to us.

Sikh couple told they could not adopt because only white babies were

first_imgHowever, children will not be kept waiting for an “exact match”, it says.The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead has been approached for comment.  A Sikh couple claim they were told they could not adopt a white child because of their ethnic background.Sandeep and Reena Mander, who are British-born and live in Berkshire, allege that they were rejected by their local adoption agency, Adopt Berkshire, as only white children were available. Mr and Mrs Mander, who are in their 30s and have been unable to have a child of their own, say they were willing to give a home to a child of any race. The couple are legally challenging the decision, with the backing of the Equality and Human Rights Commission.Mr Mander, who is vice-president of sales for a technology company, told The Times that he and his wife had been barred from even applying for adoption “not because of our incapability to adopt, but because our cultural heritage was defined as ‘Indian/Pakistani’.” Adoption agencies can prioritise parents from the same ethnic group, but in 2014 adoption rules were changed to make it easier for children to be placed with parents from a different ethnic background. It followed concerns that previous guidance for local authorities had prevented children being placed with suitable families of a different ethnicity.The number of children being adopted is falling. Last year 4,690 adoptions took place in England, down from 5,360 in 2015.  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

File PhotoThe voting in the Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) and Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) elections began on Thursday morning.The voting has begun at 8:00am and will continue uninterruptedly until 4:00pm.The day has been announced as public holiday in the areas of the two city corporations.The election commission (EC) has organised the voting for the by-polls to the DNCC mayoral post and election to councillor and reserved councillor posts of the newly added 36 wards, including 18 under the DNCC and 18 under the DSCC.The winners will be elected for one year tenure. The officials of the election management department of the EC said they sent the ballot papers to 36 wards yesterday. EC secretary Helaluddin Ahmed said a total of 19 members of different law enforcement agencies will be deployed at the centres each while 23 members for each of the risky centres. Besides, 27 mobile teams consist of the members of police, APBn and Ansar were deployed. News agency BSS adds: chief election commissioner (CEC) KM Nurul Huda on Wednesday said that the EC has completed all kinds of preparation to hold a free, fair and credible by-election to Dhaka North City Corporation. “Executive and judicial magistrates and required number of law enforcement agency members have been employed to hold the election in a fair manner.

Former Police Officer Creates Clothing Line to Support Victims of Traumatic Injuries

first_imgFormer Baltimore City police officer Teresa Rigby-Menendez, founder of Survivor Wear Inc.Former Baltimore City Police officer Teresa Rigby-Menendez does not remember the day that cut short her law enforcement career. Just over three years on the force, Rigby-Menendez had been assisting a motorist on I-83 when an oncoming vehicle lost control and slammed into her stopped patrol car, pushing the service vehicle into Rigby-Menendez and causing her to fall off the highway, a 30 foot drop.Three years later, Rigby-Menendez is still working through her physical recovery. Forced to retire due to her injuries, she has found another way to give back. Combining her desire for service and the lessons she learned through her rehabilitation, Rigby-Menendez has founded Survivor Wear Inc., a clothing line designed to raise awareness about traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and the need for long-term support for those who have experienced trauma.“Normally, when people are injured, sometimes [others] forget about them, especially when they look as if they’re doing a little bit better,” said Rigby-Menendez about the importance of realizing that recovery from injury, and especially traumatic brain injury, is a long-term process that continues well beyond the point someone leaves the hospital.Rigby-Menendez can attest to this, as she continues to deal with the psychological scars from the accident. She continues to work through a fear of being in automobiles, regardless of who is driving; of driving on I-83; and of heights. For the first year after her accident, Rigby-Menendez required company at all times and is still working to feel comfortable being left alone.Her recovery is still a reality she lives daily, but Rigby-Menendez credits a personal support system with all the progress she has made over the last three years. She believes this system is important to all trauma victims, and has sought to highlight it through Survivor Wear. “A lot of people that are injured resort to alcohol, or become addicted to their medication, or things like that, and they don’t have anybody there for them to back them up, and I was just trying to figure out a way that we can just work together and support one another so that we don’t have to resort to those other escapes,” said Rigby-Menendez.Her personal support system is in place and has rallied around Rigby-Menendez’s Survivor Wear initiative. Her husband, William Menendez, is vice president of Survivor Wear, and Rigby-Menendez’s sister serves as secretary.For William Menendez, Survivor Wear is important because it’s a chance for his wife to remain working in service to the public. “She’s retired, and she couldn’t give back again by patrolling the streets, and the only way she could give back to the community and the city was in [this] way.”The Survivor Wear line currently consists of eight different baseball-cap style hats with variations on the ‘survivor’ theme. The hats are available online at www.survivorwearinc.com and proceeds are donated to the Brain Injury Association of Maryland. Survivor Wear’s 501(c)(3) status is currently pending and Rigby-Menendez says she is in the process of developing Survivor Wear jackets and t-shirts.“The way I see it is when you’re wearing it, or when you support survivor wear, you purchase a hat, you should wear it with pride,” said Rigby-Menendez. “No matter what you’re going through, you had a traumatic experience or you’re dealing with everyday life, you wake up in the morning, you’re surviving.”last_img read more

Interview Simon Curtis GOODBYE CHRISTOPHER ROBIN

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Fans of Winnie The Pooh are largely well aware that British author A. A. Milne created the stories based on his interactions with and observations of his only son; whose real given name was Christopher Robin Milne and whose actual stuffed animals were the basis for characters like Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, Rabbit, Eeyore and the rest. What many may still not know (especially in detail) is that being the “real” Christopher Robin wasn’t much fun once Pooh became an international phenomenon. Christopher Robin Milne, in fact, described his later-childhood, teen years and young adulthood as fairly miserable – at first buckling under the demands of his own unasked for celebrity and later facing taunts and bullying for his permanent association with a children’s book character. Things weren’t exactly a picnic for the elder Milne, either; a respected playwright and essayist prior to enlisting in World War I, he’d returned home coping with what we’d now call PTSD and wound up composing the Pooh after relocating to the countryside for mental health purposes.But with Disney Studios currently in pre-production on Christopher Robin – a live-action relaunch of their version of the property with Ewan McGregor as an adult Christopher (the one from the book) reconnecting with Pooh and company after having grown up and lost his powers of imagination. It’s probably a better time than ever for audiences to familiarize themselves with the intriguing true story of the fantasy. That’s the aim of Goodbye Christopher Robin, a biopic of the Milne family centering on the writing and mass-marketing of Winnie The Pooh from director Simon Curtis (best known for My Weekend With Marilyn.) I had the opportunity to sit down with Mr. Curtis to talk about the film, which opened October 13th.What brought you onto this project?Reading a script that I loved, honestly. I’m afraid there’s not a great story there. I just thought the script was rich and about something that people would be interested to hear – but about so much else as well.Were you familiar with the story beforehand?I wasn’t – I don’t think very many people are. In America, especially… but I feel like the Brits know a bit of it.What jumped out more, at first: The fact that it was unknown, or the PTSD storyline?Both, actually. And additionally this very bold depiction of a unique family at an interesting time. And of course the creation, you know, when the audience hears the tiger being named “Tigger” and “Eeyore,” you can feel the pleasure in the audience.Was there any issue clearing the rights to use the characters or story-names, given how complicated licensing and such can be?You’d have to talk to the lawyers about that, but our story is all well before the Disney film – these toys were bought at a toy shop in London, they were just regular stuffed animals basically.What was the process for casting the child actors like?Lengthy. And it is very important. Sometimes, you know, you’ll find a great kid but you may or may not. We found a really great kid, he was a joy to work with. We didn’t necessarily walk into the room and say “We found our boy!” – at least not for me – but by the end of he process he was clearly the one. He’s a very happy boy from a lovely family, but he was able to contact the sort of sadness that’s in the story too.How much of the English countryside that we see in the film was the actual locations?Well, that bridge that we show is the actual bridge Milne and the boy would’ve played Pooh Sticks on the first time. We dressed it a bit to make it look a bit older, but it’s essentially the same bridge and the rock they sit on at the end actually has a sign on it dedicated to A. A. Milne. The house wasn’t the authentic house. However – it was another house very like it with authentic period interior decorating. What’s interesting is that the real house that Milne wrote in was also the house that Brian Jones (of The Rolling Stones) bought and died in.Speaking of the English country, here in the U.S. we’re having a lot of long debates about our rural areas being absorbed by urban sprawl. Are concerns similar in the UK?Well, what amazes me is that compared to the U.S. Britain is so small – and it’s so crowded! – but you can still find so much countryside there and actually relatively close to London. Quite stunning – all those locations you see, you can drive to from the center of London in about an hour.What sort of research went into depicting Domnhall Gleeson (as Milne’s) reactions to PTSD triggers?We had a very brilliant woman on set who was an expert in PTSD. She felt it was very accurate in the writing, and worked with Domnhall to get it right. It’s a very important part of the film, and I hadn’t realized that the books had not only been written by a man suffering from this but that the reason the books became so famous so quickly was that readers were able to recapture the innocence before the trauma of World War I.Do you think we, as a culture, have begun to forget just how uniquely traumatic The Great War was for people at the time?I don’t know – there’ve certainly been a few articles about it lately, haven’t there? But for me, the focus was that there were so many casualties… so many people didn’t come back, they just assume the survivors were the lucky ones. And this was so long before we were talking about mental health issues and things like that.Was it difficult to cast Domnhall Gleeson, given how busy and in demand he’s become these last few years?All I can say is that he turned up! [laughs] And I was really grateful for his input. But, yeah – he’s all over the place.Was it a similar casting “coup” to get Margot Robbie [as Milne’s wife]?It was, yeah, because she’s… I mean, they’re both two of the most in-demand actors around. But at the time she was living in London, she loved the script and it just worked.Were you a Winnie the Pooh fan before signing on to the project?I was a fan – but not a fanatic. I was read the stories, but I’ve met many people since making it who are much more… obsessed than I was.Were there concerns about getting the film out before Disney had completed their re-launched Pooh feature [Christopher Robin]?I’m glad we’re first!What would you say to folks who might like to take their young children to see the film but worry it might be too sad for them?Well, Will – who plays Christopher – he’s nine years old and an audience of that age, they’ll be getting a lot out of it. I mean, it is sad, but it’s also inspirational. When they’re playing… it’s some of the most beautiful acting I’ve ever been a part of.Was it a specific decision to not show us much of either the WWI or WWII battlefields – to leave it almost entirely up to description?There was that sliver at the very beginning, and I think that was enough. You want to give a sense that these guys, they thought they were literally in the depths of hell in the trenches, on the battlefield… and then they’re sipping cocktails in Chelsea – I think that by leaping from one to the other, we made that point.Goodbye Christopher Robin opens in U.S. theatres now.last_img read more

Acura SUV Drives Itself Into Oncoming Traffic After Windshield Replacement

first_imgThe windshield on your car, truck, van, or SUV does way more than keep bugs out of your face and provide take-out joints a place to stick their menus. It’s also a critical part of your vehicle’s safety systems.That goes double for some cars equipped with autonomous driving features. The 2016 Acura MDX, for example, features an advanced driver-assistance system, or ADAS. And when you have the windshield replaced on a 2016 Acura MDX as one Canadian man did recently it’s really important to make sure things are still working properly.If they’re not, your car just might drive you straight into oncoming traffic. That’s exactly what a CBC report says happened to Mike Ash, who figured getting a new pane of glass would be “a pretty standard procedure.”Here’s some background on the vehicle. Mike’s MDX is equipped with Acura’s AcuraWatch system. AcuraWatch delivers a certain amount of automation, but it’s not a Tesla Autopilot-style experience.It’s a more conservative take, albeit one with plenty of capabilities. AcuraWatch offers lane departure, road departure, adaptive cruise and collision mitigation. It would probably be classed as level 1 or 2 on the 0 to 5 automation scale.As with all driver assistance systems, AcuraWatch relies on input from a number of  cameras and sensors. Some of those sensors, it turns out, are located in the windshield.Change the windshield and the ADAS needs to be re-calibrated in order to make sure bad things don’t happen. A millimeter or two difference might not seem like a bid deal, but it most definitely is to the ADAS. Its readings will be off and your car’s safety system could thrust you into some very unsafe situations.When the CBC reached out to Acura for comment, they offered a pretty typical automaker response: “We recommend that you replace the windshield with a genuine Acura replacement windshield,” adding that only certified techs at Acura dealerships should do the work.At the very least, you should probably go straight from your autoglass place to the dealership to get the ADAS checked out before you go on any extended drives… into the wrong lane.last_img read more

August 11, 2011 – GE Healthcare announced U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance of Optima CT660 – a compact computed tomography (CT) system offering improvements from its predecessors in diagnostic capabilities at low dose levels. The system is designed for sustainability and ease-of-use.Powered by GE’s advanced CT technologies and applications, the intelligent platform is scalable from 32 to 128 slices through purchasable options and enables fast, high performance imaging for patients in a variety of clinical settings, including cardiac, neurological, emergency room and routine CT. The system is already in use at hundreds of sites across Europe, Latin America and Asia. It is the first CT system that is both ecomagination and healthymagination-certified, two of the company’s global initiatives aimed at transforming healthcare delivery through innovation, partnerships and sustainability. Based on customer demand and designed with the company’s high definition (HD) technologies, the device takes the known and trusted capabilities of the LightSpeed Volume CT (VCT) to a whole new level. It assists healthcare professionals in delivering confident, personalized patient care – combining GE’s dose-optimizing ASiR (Adaptive Statistical Iterative Reconstruction) technology, improved workflow features, and advanced applications for cardiovascular, oncology, neurology, CT angiography and other fields.In cardiovascular settings, the system is designed to scan the heart efficiently with accurate and reliable clinical results. Combining ASiR and Snapshot Pulse with adaptive gating technology, patient dose may be reduced compared to traditional helical scan techniques. The CT Advantage Workstation (AW) cardiovascular system may also help accelerate workflow with enhanced post-processing automation and reliability.With AW’s suite of oncology applications, the system helps physicians assess lesions at potentially lower dose, while also streamlining overall workflow for lesion detection, analysis and follow-up. For CT angiography, the system’s speed and image clarity may reduce the trade-off between coverage and high resolution.A compact footprint combined with a modular design opens the door to advanced, low dose imaging for many customers constrained by space.An ecomagination-certified product, the device uses about 60 percent less energy than previous-generation scanners. Additionally, its lighter weight reduces transportation costs while its environmental design addresses refurbishment and end-of-life recycling.Other new design features include automatic table positioning and the company’s first color 12-inch integrated gantry display monitor.Traditionally, lowering CT dose increases noise, creating an undesirable trade-off between clear images and reduced X-ray dose. To overcome this conventional CT challenge and achieve As Low As Reasonably Achievable (ALARA) dose levels, the system utilizes GE’s ASiR technology. Its design may allow for reduced mA in the acquisition of diagnostic images, thereby reducing the required X-ray dose.The system also features tools that help clinical users manage dose. The standard “Dose Check” technology can notify and alert users prior to scanning if the estimated dose is above their institution’s set values. It requires explicit user authority checks when estimated dose exceeds the alert value and enables specifically defined pediatric and adult alert values. The Dose Check feature also provides for audit logging, review and protocol change control capabilities.For more information: www.gehealthcare.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 PreviousNextlast_img read more

German woman convicted for killing her 5 newborns

first_imgBERLIN (AP) – A German court has convicted a woman of manslaughter and sentenced her to nine years in prison for killing five of her newborn babies.The 29-year-old woman, whose name hasn’t been released in keeping with German privacy rules, turned herself in to authorities last September. Prosecutors said then that she killed the infants shortly after giving birth in secret at home or in the woods because she worried her husband would leave her if she had any more children. The state court in Flensburg, on Germany’s border with Denmark, convicted her Thursday of five counts of manslaughter, the dpa news agency reported. Prosecutors had sought a 10-year sentence and the defense a seven-year term.The babies were born between 2006 and 2012. The woman has two living children.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.
