French soccer fans in Montreal prepare for les Bleus World Cup match

first_imgMONTREAL – As she drank an apple-carrot smoothie on a patio in Montreal’s Plateau neighbourhood, French tourist Josiane Vignolles said there is no doubt where she will be Friday morning for the World Cup quarter-final between France and Uruguay.“I didn’t think France would make it this far — honestly, said Vignolles, 60, whose son recently moved to Montreal, just like the tens of thousands of other young French people who have come to the city — and especially the Plateau — in the past several years.Vignolles will be among the throngs buzzing around L’Barouf bar, which has turned into a quasi-pilgrimage site for matches of “les Bleus.”The establishment on St-Denis Street is usually closed in the morning, but owner Mehdi Bekri said doors will be open as early as 9 a.m. for the 10 o’clock kickoff.“It’s going to be packed in here,” said Bekri, 40. His bar will be so full that fans will line up outside to watch the game, forcing part of the street to be blocked to cars, he added.“I am a fan of it all, said Bekri. “If France or Belgium don’t make it, I want Uruguay to win (the cup).”France beat Australia and Peru and tied with Denmark in the group stage before defeating Argentina 4-3 in the round of 16 to reach the last eight. The champion of Friday’s game will play the winner of the afternoon match between Brazil and Belgium.Although nobody was spotted Thursday wearing a French team jersey on the sweltering streets of the Plateau — temperatures reached 43 C with the humidex — French accents were everywhere.The 2016 census indicates the Montreal area is home to roughly 57,000 people born in France — slightly more than half of all the French-born people in Canada.During the last French election in 2017, lines outside polling stations in the city stretched far down city blocks.Not far from L’Barouf, 29-year-old Damien Kenson was holding a pastry box containing a strawberry crumble at a cafe on Rachel Street.Kenson, originally from an area just outside Paris, said he’ll watch the match near the city’s Little Italy neighbourhood, which is located a few kilometres north of the Plateau and also home to many French people.Little Italy has been noticeably quieter this tournament than in years past, considering the Italian national team didn’t make the World Cup after failing to beat Sweden in a two-game playoff.The district’s Italians hung a giant banner hanging off two lampposts on either side of St-Laurent Street, reading “Go Everyone Except Sweden. The World Cup in Little Italy, without Italy.”And while the Plateau is quickly turning into what locals satirically call “New France,” not everyone will be watching Friday’s match.Jean-Michel Cauvin, 47, ordered a coffee shortly after Kenson and said it was “highly probable” he wouldn’t be paying any attention.Cauvin, from the south of France, has been in Montreal for about 20 years.“You know what I don’t miss about France?,” he said. “The soccer craziness. The car horns down the streets. I don’t miss that at all.”Cauvin is a fan of more “individual sports” such as skiing or squash.“I don’t like hockey either,” he said.last_img read more


Few incentives in spendingheavy BC budget global downturn worries business

VICTORIA — Business leaders say they’re concerned the British Columbia government’s budget pays too little attention to the potential impacts of a slowing global economy and a shifting housing market.B.C. Business Council president Greg D’Avignon says finance Minister Carole James is banking on robust economic growth to fund long-term social and environment programs amounting to $2 billion over the next three years.He says the council, which represents many of the largest employers in the province, credits the government for the initiatives that support families and environment programs, but the government is taking business for granted in a darkening economy. Real estate developer Jason Turcotte says the government depends on tax revenue from home sales to help fund its programs, but the budget hinders new property developments which create that wealth.James says B.C. is forecast to lead Canada in economic growth for the next two years and her budget has set aside more than $2.6 billion in contingency and allowance funds in the event of a downturn.Opposition Liberal Leader Andrew Wilkinson says the budget does nothing to stimulate the economy.

Top UN envoy voices hope for additional troops in volatile eastern DR

The top United Nations envoy to the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) today expressed hope that the Security Council will shortly approve a request for 3,000 additional troops to buttress blue helmets already on the ground in the country’s east, the scene of fierce recent conflict.Currently, the UN peacekeeping mission in the country, known as MONUC, has nearly 6,000 troops in North Kivu province, which has been wracked by fighting between Government forces and rebel militias.The Council’s authorization for extra forces will “enable us to reinforce our presence, particularly in North Kivu, which is really needed given the pressures on us from many direction,” Alan Doss, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative, told reporters in New York via video link from the DRC.Mr. Doss, who heads MONUC, said the mission is trying to simultaneously trying to “stabilize the situation in these areas where the conflict is taking place as well as provide support for humanitarian interventions.”Relief supplies are being delivered by truck to Rutshuru, north of the provincial capital Goma, and the UN is continuing with efforts to move people uprooted by conflict away from the front lines of the fighting, he said.On the political front, former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo, now serving as the Secretary-General’s Special Envoy, has met with Presidents Joseph Kabila of the DRC and José Eduardo dos Santos of Angola.On Sunday, Mr. Obasanjo held talks with renegade general Laurent Nkunda, who heads the militia known as the Congress in Defence of the People (CNDP).Following their talks, the CNDP today announced that it will review the ceasefire and “pull back from certain areas,” which will become a zone of separation, Mr. Doss said.Patrolled by MONUC, this zone – running from east to west and situated some 100 kilometres due north of Goma – will serve as a “means of de-escalating the conflict and creating space between the armed groups and the national armed forces,” known as FARDC.The mission is also trying to arrange talks between FARDC and CNDP to “build on this dynamic that’s been created by Mr. Obasanjo over the last three or four days to try to stabilize the situation, improve the humanitarian access and then of course pave the way for the political and diplomatic processes to go forward,” Mr. Doss said, emphasizing that “these problems are not going to be solved by force.”Over the weekend, the Congolese and Rwandan governments met to discuss key issues, such as the notorious ex-Rwandan Armed Forces (ex-FAR)/Interahamwe, and Mr. Doss said that the two countries are “very much in favour and support the role of Mr. Obasanjo.”In a related development, the UN World Food Programme (WFP) said today that it is increasing its food distributions in the war-ravaged east of the DRC in a bid to reach almost 100,000 people uprooted by fighting.The agency seeks to reach the displaced around Goma and in rebel-held areas further north.Today, WFP began distributing 20-day rations for over 56,000 people in three camps for internally displaced persons (IDPs) near Goma, with plans to deliver supplies to another three sites in the area planned shortly.Earlier this month, the agency delivered rations to the same half-dozen camps earlier this month.Also today, the delivery of much-needed food aid will begin for 25,000 displaced in Kitchanga and 11,000 in Kilolirwe, both of which are camps situated in the rebel-held Masisi region, north-west of Goma.With the security situation still shaky, food distributions are dependent on MONUC escorts.In a press release, WFP expressed its great concern for the many thousands of people it cannot reach due to the hostilities, with reports coming in of new clashes in Rwindi and Kanyabayonga, more than 100 kilometres north of Goma.But even in areas it can access, the agency stressed the difficulties humanitarian convoys face given the rainy season’s heavy downpours and poor road conditions.To boost its storage capacity in Goma, WFP has set up five temporary warehouses. It has also dispatched two staff members to establish a logistics hub in Beni, in the north of the province, with plans to move food there from Kampala, the capital of Uganda, within the next three days.The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said that the resumption of clashes between the CNDP and FARDC on 16 November in Rwindi has resulted in new population displacements, and some 25,000 IDPs have fled to the area around a MONUC base in Bambo, 80 kilometres north of Goma.Insecurity has closed most of the schools in Rutshuru, with 150,000 children – including those who forced to flee their homes – not attending classes, the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) reported today. A measles vaccination campaign is in progress, but is being impeded by the fighting, the agency added. 18 November 2008The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is increasing its food distributions in the war-ravaged east of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) in a bid to reach almost 100,000 people uprooted by the conflict. read more


Senior UN health official welcomes Asian efforts to fight SARS

“Meetings of this level and magnitude to form a common strategy against a specific disease, show how serious countries are to become free of SARS,” David Heymann, Executive Director of the World Health Organization (WHO) Communicable Diseases Cluster told Asian leaders gathered in Bangkok, Thailand.The meeting included the heads of government of ASEAN – Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, The Philippines, Thailand, Myanmar, Brunei, Cambodia, Laos and Viet Nam, plus China, including Hong Kong. As of yesterday, there had been 5,050 probably cases of SARS, 321 of them fatal, in 26 countries, the vast majority in East Asia.Mr. Heymann told the leaders that that there were two simple strategies that could contain and eventually stop SARS – detecting all cases and protecting those at risk of infection from these cases. He said countries needed to detect and treat SARS cases early while taking effective measures to protect the rest of the population.He added that this was reflected in the procedures endorsed at the meeting, where countries agreed to standardize screening of all travellers, isolate and treat identified SARS cases, and, importantly, share accurate and timely information. read more


Brides escape across Italy in Big Love

The age-old story of love versus power is the focus of the upcoming Brock production Big Love.Photo: Karyn McCallumThe play tells the story of 50 brides (all sisters) who flee arranged marriages to 50 grooms (their cousins) who pursue them across Italy. A contemporary look at Aeschylus’s Greek tragedy The Suppliant Women, the play will be performed by the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts on Feb. 11 to 13.In Big Love, three of the runaway brides seek asylum in an Italian family’s villa. Their hosts are unable to negotiate the moral predicament and allow the forced marriages, so the brides make a pact to kill their husbands on their wedding night.“I am drawn to the play because it has the scale of a Greek tragedy, but it is dressed in the global culture of today,” said Gyllian Raby, director and associate professor in Dramatic Arts. “(Playwright Charles) Mee invites a wild post-modern performativity, but his story is so deeply sourced in western culture that it is very accessible.”Karyn McCallum designed the set. The choreography is from Gemini-nominated director Allen Kaeja.Performers are from the Dramatic Arts undergraduate performance concentration. They include Rebecca Durance-Hine, Jacqueline Costa, Sadie Isaak, Rob MacMenamin, Corey Mehlenbacher, Trevor Ketcheson, Jen Bender, Chris Boyle, Michael Pearson, Eric Frank, Dylan Mawson and Kasey Dunn.Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for seniors and students.Performances:Thursday, Feb. 11 – 7:30 p.m.Friday, Feb. 12 – 1 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.Saturday, Feb. 13 – 7:30 p.m.To order tickets:Centre for the Arts box office905-688-5550 read more

State audit faults Evergreen schools

first_imgAudit findingA state audit has found fault in the way Evergreen Public Schools calculated and reported compliance with the national school lunch and school breakfast programs.“The district did not have adequate internal controls over its federal child nutrition verification process, resulting in inaccurate reporting of verification results,” according to the audit report released Monday.The audit period was Sept. 1, 2011, through Aug. 31, 2012.The district received $1,116,250 for the School Breakfast Program and $4,290,586 for the National School Lunch Program in the 2011-2012 school year. The programs fund free and reduced-price meals for children from low-income families. To be eligible for these programs, families must meet income guidelines.The audit found the district incorrectly determined eligibility for about 29 percent of the applications. These errors were due to excluding overtime pay from parents’ total earnings and miscalculating monthly household income using paycheck stubs provided by families.Due to these errors, the district received $9,585 in excess federal funds and caused inaccurate verification results to be reported to the state.Each year districts must choose a sample of applications and verify that the income reported by families is correct. The Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction provides school districts with instructions on how to verify program eligibility. If the verification process is not completed properly, the district risks serving free and reduced-price meals to ineligible families and misreporting verification results to the state.last_img read more


State loses bid for easements near Chicken

first_imgIn court, the state of Alaska lost its bid for easements along historic trails across Native Allotments near Chicken, in Interior Alaska. The Department of Law is now turning to the larger issue of getting easements along historic trails crossing private and federal land.Download AudioMon. March 14, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favor of the U.S. Department of Interior, Tanana Chiefs Conference and Native allotment owners Agnes and Anne Purdy. Richard Monkman represents the regional nonprofit Tanana Chiefs Conference on the side of the Purdy’s.“In simple terms this was a land grab,” Monkman said. “The state was trying to get something for nothing at the expense of a Native family that had been in possession of this land for a long long time. The courts put an end to that.”Monkman said the facts fly in the face of the state’s argument that the trails are needed for public use:“They asserted in court that they had a right of way to go from Chicken to Eagle across the Purdy’s land and they needed the land for that purpose,” said Monkman. “But there’s a state highway, just a few miles to the east that takes people back and forth quite adequately. There’s no reason for them to take this land.”Department of Law assistant attorney general Cori Mills says the state hasn’t decided whether to appeal the case to the U.S. Supreme Court.“We’re still evaluating all our options on this case,” Mills said.Mills says the state has a larger issue to contend with:“The underlying case has to do with the state seeking to quiet title to public trails in the 40-mile region,” said Mills. “And these trails go across both private and public land as well as the land of some two in particular Alaska Native allotments.”Mills said the private land-owners in the area are okay with giving the state title to rights-or-way across their lands. She said the state is already in court over getting title for historic trails across federal lands.“The important parts of the case and the crux of the case are really about these public trails as they go along federal land,” Mills said. “So the important issues are still really at the district court level. So we’re going to start…that case was stayed until this appeal occurred. So that’s going to keep going forward.”The state has up to 60 days to decide whether to appeal the 9th Circuit Court’s ruling.last_img read more


Facebook Communications Head Elliot Schrage Is Leaving

first_imgFacebook’s longtime VP of communications and public policy Elliot Schrage is leaving the company. Schrage, who had been in the job for over a decade, said Thursday that it was “time to start a new chapter.”“I’ve had the incredible opportunity to help build an extraordinary global team of dedicated professionals in policy and communications,” Schrage said in a statement posted to his Facebook profile Thursday. “Working with some of the most talented and creative engineers, product managers, visionaries and business leaders that good fortune (and inspiring leadership) has brought together has changed my life.”“You’ve made an extraordinary contribution to Facebook — dealing with some of our toughest challenges and helping enable some of our biggest opportunities,” said Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg in a response to Schrage’s post. “You’ve been committed to our mission throughout and have always seen the potential that comes when people can connect to others and build community.” Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg added that Schrage had been “instrumental in building our policy and communications teams as well as pushing many of our key initiatives – including the recent publication of our community standards, data about our effectiveness enforcing those standards and the creation of an independent election commission.”Schrage joined Facebook coming from Google in 2008. More recently, he led Facebook’s response to the Cambridge Analytica scandal, which was widely panned as inadequate. The social network was criticized for delaying its initial response to the scandal.There is no word yet on who is going to replace Schrage. On an interim basis, the comms team will be jointly led by Rachel Whetstone and Caryn Marooney, according to Recode, which was first to report on Schrage’s departure Thursday.

Do You Have What It Takes to Be Beyoncés Assistant

first_imgStay on target Being Beyoncé’s assistant for the day: DONT GET FIRED THREAD— Green Chyna (@CORNYASSBITCH) June 23, 2019“It’s your first day on the job and Beyoncé is getting ready for a red carpet. What are you getting her for breakfast? Yogurt, granola, and strawberries or a five-star breakfast?” Green Chyna asks.As mouth-watering as those bacon strips and hashbrowns look…This is by far the easiest question of the lot. So answer healthy or just go home.Following the most important meal of Bey’s day, you’ll have to navigate the murky waters of FaceTiming with family, dealing with the paparazzi, locating lost items, and correctly lighting one of music’s top-selling artists.It won’t be easy.

But it will be vital—to the world and your future.(I mean, imagine having to explain to your family, friends, and potential employers that Beyoncé fired you as her PA because you chose the wrong song to play in the car.)Like the classic CYOA stories of yore, it’s easy enough to simply rewind the narrative and try again (and again, and again).And you don’t even need to be a Beyoncé fan (unlike the creator, who claims the superstar “spat on my hand” in 2016) to enjoy the interactive experience.

Aussie cyclist needs skin graft after iPhone explodes

first_imgWhen you think about cycling injuries, cuts, scrapes, bruises — maybe even the odd sprain or fracture might come to mind. A severe burn requiring grafts probably isn’t on the list.That’s exactly what happened to 36-year old Australian Gareth Clear when he was out biking recently. Clear was enjoying a ride on the extensive network of paths at Manly Dam. It’s a gorgeous place to go for a ride — here’s a short clip so you can see for yourself:Clear’s recent ride wasn’t quite as enjoyable, however. It was cut short when the iPhone 6 he’d been using for the past six months suddenly started to burn right in his pocket.This particular incident doesn’t appear to have been caused by a shoddy third-party charger or cable, at least not directly. Clear’s comments about the incident seem to indicate that he fell on top of it, and presumably onto something hard that managed to penetrate the iPhone’s aluminum back cover and puncture the internal battery.“The phone did hit the ground, it didn’t spontaneously combust,” Clear said. Once the battery was damaged, the reaction quickly set his phone ablaze. It burned through his shorts and two layers of skin. Doctors at the Royal North Shore Hospital patched him back up, but Clear will spend the next week recovering at home. He’ll be tethered to an antibiotic drip to help ensure the burn doesn’t become infected.Apple has contacted Clear and said they’re going to investigate the incident. There could have been other contributing factors besides the damage sustained — and if there were faulty components inside Apple definitely wants to know about them.last_img read more

Christmas festival at the Childrens Museum draws 10000

first_imgFireworks, a Christmas musical and a rock band enthralled Costa Rican families Wednesday night, as thousands of spectators filled more than two blocks around the Children’s Museum on the northern edge of downtown San José.The Chidren’s Museum celebrated its 13th annual lighting of the “Castle of Dreams.”Families crammed in front of the castle-like façade of the museum, many parents hoisting smaller children on their shoulders. Streets vendors meandered through the crowd with Santa hats, lighted bracelets and balloons.A rock band opened the festivities and gave way to a musical that focused on the true meaning of Christmas. Actors sang and danced on a stage in front of the museum’s entrance, using wires to pull some up and down the roof. A projector bathed the museum’s wall with changing images for the play’s scenes.In the story, Mugrón, an insect-like villain, stole the presents and cake of the Children’s Museum’s mascots Museito and Museita. As the two lamented their ruined Christmas party with their friends, Costa Rican singer-songwriter Martín Valverde, playing himself, arrived with a lesson on Christmas spirit. Valverde said they must not hold on to hatred of Mugrón.“If you want God to forgive you, first you must be able to forgive,” Valverde said.At the play’s conclusion, Valverde persuaded the villain to give up his Grinch-esque plans to prevent lighting the castle, and the first fireworks launched behind him to joyous cheers from the crowd.“Today we finish a work of more than six months of preparation,” museum director Fabiola Rodríguez said in a statement. “And we feel truly happy and emotional about the power to give this activity to thousands of families.” Facebook Comments No related posts.last_img read more
