Bernier says Peoples Party set up in all 338 ridings ahead of

first_imgOTTAWA — The People’s Party of Canada says it has reached its goal of setting up 338 riding associations as it sets its sights on being a competitive force in the upcoming federal election.In an email to supporters, leader Maxime Bernier says the move amounts to a “gift of hope” for Canadians seeking to bring back freedom, responsibility, fairness and respect to the country.Bernier was a Conservative MP for more than a decade before he announced in August he was leaving the fold to launch his own party.The party’s platform is still being finalized, but its website says positions taken by Bernier in the Conservative leadership race — such as a pitch to phase out supply management for the dairy sector — will form the basis for its policies.Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer defeated Bernier for the federal Tory leadership by a slim margin in May 2017.Bernier has accused the Tories of abandoning conservatives, adding the party has “nothing of substance” to offer Canadians seeking a political alternative.“I have one wish for Christmas: That you and each one of our party’s 33,800 members bring even more hope by contributing $3.38 or $33.80 today to help us spread this good news,” Bernier said to supporters on Sunday.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Luxury real estate sales rise in Toronto Montreal fall in Vancouver

07 Oct 2019

Luxury real estate sales flourished in Montreal with property sales over $4 million jumping by triple digits in the first half of 2019, but continued to dwindle in Vancouver, according to a new report.“Canada’s top-tier real estate markets veered in separate directions,” read a report released Wednesday by Sotheby’s International Realty Canada, which tracked the number of condominiums, townhouses and detached homes sold for over $1 million and $4 million in major Canadian cities.The agency has previously forecast Montreal as an emerging hot stop set to make new records.Sales of properties over $1 million jumped five per cent in the first half of 2019 compared with the same period last year. Sales of properties over $4 million soared 267 per cent with 11 properties sold. Three such properties were sold in the first half of 2018.The agency’s experts noted an increase in international buyers — a group that includes new Canadians, permanent residents and investors, according to the report, as foreign buyers’ taxes in Toronto and Vancouver redirected international buyers to Montreal. However, the group still composes “a small percentage of overall top-tier sales activity” in the city, it said.There were “healthy increases” in sales of properties over $1 million in the Greater Toronto Area, where 8,612 such properties sold in the first half of the year — up 12 per cent from the same time in 2018.Sales of properties over $4 million in the GTA fell 19 per cent, which the report attributed to sellers of such homes not listing their properties on the Multiple Listing Service in favour of private sales. That shift comes after a change that makes more information public when homes are sold via the MLS.Industry experts expect this trend will affect real estate markets in other major cities more significantly in time, according to the report.Meanwhile, in Vancouver’s formerly heated housing market, luxury property sales continued to drop due to fallout from government intervention.“The market continued to bear the burden of tightened mortgage rules, multiple governmental policies and taxes, and hesitant sellers and fickle buyers lacking motivation to commit to transactions,” the report read.Homes sold for over $1 million fell 33 per cent to 1,308 properties, while homes sold for more than $4 million fell 34 per cent to 73 homes.Sotheby’s said a slow reconciliation between sellers’ expectations and the current market conditions “are setting the stage for activity at new levels” for the rest of 2019.“Evolving conditions in Vancouver real estate have created opportunities for prospective top-tier real estate buyers to consider housing options previously out of reach,” the report said, adding some potential buyers who were considering condos priced at more than $1 million have likely now shifted their focus to attached or detached homes instead.Sales of condos over $1 million fell 51 per cent in the first six months of this year from 708 condos sold between January and June 2018 to 349 in the same six months of 2019.“The continued adjustment of housing prices is expected to renew interest and activity in the future,” the report noted of Vancouver’s single family homes priced over $1 million.The report also tracked prices in Calgary, where sales of properties over $1 million fell 21 per cent.

How Isaiah Thomas The Shortest Guy In The NBA Became Unstoppable

29 Sep 2019

Just when we thought we’d seen all Isaiah Thomas could do, the diminutive Celtics star found yet another level Tuesday, scoring 53 on his late sister’s birthday to give Boston a 2-0 second-round series lead over the Wizards.The million-dollar question: How? How does a guy who’s 5-foot-9, who nearly averaged 29 points per game during the regular season, continue to wreck defenses so mightily in a playoff setting when defenses are hellbent on neutralizing him?The simple answer is that Thomas and his coaching staff have found ways to make Thomas virtually unguardable within Boston’s offensive scheme; especially since Brad Stevens tweaked his lineup in the middle of the first round, a move that gave Thomas more space to navigate.Stevens all but eliminated Amir Johnson from the rotation, meaning Al Horford is now soaking up a ton of minutes as the team’s lone post player on the court. That switch forces defenses to guard an extra Celtic along the perimeter, which is already a tough task, since Horford is also a good shooter. With opponents stretched that thin, Thomas can make use of his game-changing quickness.That’s especially the case in handoff scenarios, where the floor general can generate a full head of steam while his man is trying to play catch-up from behind. Thomas took more handoffs than any other player in the NBA this past regular season, with 216 plays of this nature according to Synergy Sports. And he’s only gotten better at them in the last few weeks. He has scored on 56 percent of his handoffs since the playoffs began, up from 47 percent during the season. (This would’ve been the NBA’s highest mark during the regular season among players with at least 100 handoffs.)Having Horford as the lone Celtics big helps Thomas’s handoff game immensely. Thomas — the league’s most-blocked player — has been able to get his shots off more cleanly with fewer players in the paint.1Thomas’s shots have only been blocked 6 percent of the time with Horford on the court and Johnson off; he’s been blocked 13 percent of the time when Horford and Johnson are on the floor together, according to NBA Wowy, which tracks advanced statistics across different lineup groupings. What’s more, Thomas’s newfound space has left defenders without a clear way to defend him.After receiving a handoff, he’s a nightmare on the perimeter because of all the different options he has at his disposal. Watch how reluctant Wizards star John Wall is to chase Thomas around the screen here. He doesn’t want to risk barreling into Thomas, who is one of the league’s best players at stopping abruptly once he’s turned the corner in order to draw a 3-point shooting foul.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/thomasoffahandoff.mp400:0000:0000:08Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.In the paint, Washington’s bigs have been just as concerned about how to play Thomas. Stand too far back, and you risk Thomas scoring from midrange, where he is an effective, albeit inconsistent2Thomas’s successful midrange attempts, on average, had far less arc on them than his midrange misses this past season. The 1.03 foot difference was the widest disparity in the NBA among players who took at least 100 midrange shots, according to an analysis run by SportVU at FiveThirtyEight’s request. shooter. Play too far up, and he’ll use a burst of quickness to beat you to the rim, where he’s armed with an array of twists and tricks that help him compensate for his lack of height.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/thomasoffhandoff2.mp400:0000:0000:07Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/ithandoff3.mp400:0000:0000:09Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Trapping Thomas with two defenders as he comes around screens is one option for opposing defenses. But Stevens’s lineup switch, which has the Celtics looking more like the Houston Rockets because of how many threes they’re taking, makes that option a more dangerous choice because an unguarded Celtic shooter is now more likely to be found on the perimeter.All of which helps explain why the Wizards have had no answer for how to guard the shortest man on the court. That Thomas is really good also helps. read more

USA womens soccer stars Hope Solo and Alex Morgan visit Ohio State

28 Sep 2019

Life’s been a whirlwind for United States women’s national soccer team players Alex Morgan and Hope Solo since their World Cup performance in the summer of 2011. In the midst of preparing for the 2012 Olympic Games set to take place in London, England, the two soccer stars made an appearance at Ohio State to speak at an event in the Ohio Union. Solo, who plays goalie, and Morgan, who plays forward, sat down for an exclusive interview with The Lantern before taking the stage and talking to students. Though the soccer tandem hadn’t seen much more than the airport, they said they were excited to be in Columbus and on OSU’s campus. “I’m so excited to be on campus and see really more or less what the student body is like than the city itself,” Solo said. The U.S. women’s soccer team lost to Japan in the World Cup final, but overall they said it was a great experience. “The World Cup was obviously an amazing experience,” Morgan said. “It was my first World Cup. We had a great journey through the World Cup. We did end up on the short side of the stick with that loss in the end to Japan. But we have no regrets.” The World Cup saw both players’ popularity soar and with that popularity, they were able to experience opportunities outside of soccer. Solo participated in the dancing competition “Dancing With the Stars,” and Morgan appeared in the most recent edition of the yearly “Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition” in which she posed in body paint. “It was probably the longest day of my life,” Morgan said of the magazine photo shoot. “It took probably 14 hours to paint. I felt very uncomfortable at many times during that day, but I’m very happy with the results.” Solo said that though the players have seen their individual popularity grow, the popularity for the sport has increased as well. “We’ve gotten some younger, maybe, male fans because of certain other aspects,” Solo said. “But I can assure you that the passion of the game has grown on kind of a broader scheme.” And the players said their focus is on the game at the end of the day. “It starts with soccer and it ends with soccer,” Morgan said. “That’s our priority and although we have these opportunities outside of soccer, we need to go back and keep soccer our priority.” Though soccer doesn’t begin for the women at the Olympics until July, the players said their team is already in full training mode. Team USA will travel to Portugal, Japan and other locations before finally suiting up in London. And make no mistake about it. The team wants gold. “Is there any other way to enter the Olympics?” Solo said. As for all of Solo’s and Morgan’s male fans at OSU, they didn’t have any chance encounters with the athletes walking down High Street late at night. Morgan said she’s exhausted. “I’m going to call it a night pretty early tonight, which is sad,” Morgan said. “I wish I could see the city a little bit more.” read more

Churches take advantage of heatwave as they advertise thmselves as places to

The account urged: “The Met Office has issued an amber heatwave alert suggesting people ‘stay indoors and out of the sun. Well, look no further… Doors open at 9am.” A spokesperson from Durham Cathedral said that although the city isn’t quite as warm as York at the moment, it is preparing for the heatwave to hit on Thursday. They said: “We’re not as hot at York especially at the moment, but things are forecast to get a bit hotter on Thursday, so we are inviting people in, and are open until 8pm in the evenings at the moment. People are welcome to come into the cathedral during the heatwave. It’s free to enter, and donations are encouraged, for people who need a respite from the heat.”The All Saints Church in Kettering chimed in, simply tweeting: “Beat the heatwave – Drop into a church – churches are cool.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

The Church of England approved this message, with a spokesperson telling The Telegraph: “As well as looking glorious, our historic church buildings tend to stay nicely cool, and are the perfect place of sanctuary in the heatwave. We have around 16,000 in total, so there’s probably one nearby (google A Church Near You to find out where).”Most are open all day, so why not pop in for a moment’s calm, take a break from the sun, and experience some of the country’s richest architectural treasures along the way!”However, Humanists UK were unimpressed by the “ploy”.

People are welcome to come into the cathedral during the heatwave. It’s free to enter, and donations are encouraged, for people who need a respite from the heat.”The All Saints Church in Kettering chimed in, simply tweeting: “Beat the heatwave – Drop into a church – churches are cool.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. The Church of England approved this message, with a spokesperson telling The Telegraph: “As well as looking glorious, our historic church buildings tend to stay nicely cool, and are the perfect place of sanctuary in the heatwave. We have around 16,000 in total, so there’s probably one nearby (google A Church Near You to find out where).”Most are open all day, so why not pop in for a moment’s calm, take a break from the sun, and experience some of the country’s richest architectural treasures along the way!”However, Humanists UK were unimpressed by the “ploy”. Richy Thompson, Director of Pubilc Affairs and Policy said : “We’re glad to hear that vicars aren’t getting too hot under the dog collar given this warm weather, but we trust the British public will be cool to this latest ploy for new recruits. read more

Loser in Kenyan presidential election says he will contest result in court

22 Sep 2019

first_imgUHURU KENYATTA HAS narrowly won Kenya’s presidential election, urging calm and pledging to work with rivals and cooperate with the international community.Kenyatta, son of Kenya’s founding president and one of Africa’s richest men who also faces an international crimes against humanity trial, scraped by with 50.07 per cent of the vote to avoid a runoff against his closest rival Raila Odinga in the results announced on Saturday.However Odinga, the outgoing prime minister, said he would contest the results in court, raising tensions following the key poll.Odinga’s charges on Saturday echo accusations in 2007 presidential polls when he alleged he was robbed of victory, with disputed results triggering bloody ethnic violence in which more than 1,100 people were killed.“We have highlighted so many irregularities in the tallying process,” Odinga told reporters, shortly after the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) declared Kenyatta the “duly elected president”.The rigging claims however have been dismissed by Kenya’s electoral commission.Kenyatta, dressed in a suit and red tie, beamed a wide smile as he waved his official victory certificate from the IEBC to loud cheers from the crowd.But shortly afterwards Odinga – in his third failed attempt at the top job – said his party would challenge the result at the Supreme Court, adding he had “faith in the judiciary and the ruling will be respected.”Political loyalties in Kenya are largely based along ethnic lines, and while Kenyatta’s majority Kikuyu people and the new found Kalenjin allies of his running mate William Ruto partied, the Luo of Odinga mourned their loss.“Any violence now could destroy the country forever, and that would not serve anyone’s interests,” warned Odinga, who won 43.31 per cent of the vote.But Kenyatta offered “my older brother” Odinga an olive branch, telling thousands of his party loyalists that he wanted to work with him “in moving our nation forward.”The new president-elect also called on his celebrating supporters not to laud it over those they have defeated, urging them in being “modest in our victory.”Odinga alleges fraud but urges peace Kenyatta’s 50.07 per cent of the vote, according to the election commission figures, narrowly broke the 50 per cent threshold needed to avoid a second round poll by around 8,400 votes.The 51-year-old outgoing deputy prime minister – charismatic and able to appeal to all classes – will become the first leader to take power whilst facing trial in The Hague-based International Criminal Court (ICC).Both Kenyatta and his future vice-president Ruto, 46, face ICC charges over the violence in the aftermath of the 2007 elections, including orchestrating murder, forcible transfer and persecution.Concerns were high as to how Odinga loyalists would react to the results, five years since the wave of bloodshed following the disputed polls.There have been no major incidents of violence reported on Saturday beyond a few scuffles between police and gangs of youths.But as Odinga prepared his legal challenge, the international community urged calm, with US Secretary of State John Kerry calling for Kenyans to “peacefully address any disputes”.Former UN chief Kofi Annan, who helped broker peace after the 2007-8 violence, said Kenya faced “a test of the strength” of its democracy but that he was confident the east African country would “emerge stronger” in the end.Former colonial ruler Britain, in a message echoed by the European Union, urged people “to accept defeat or take any disputes to the courts”.“Respect our sovereignty” Excited crowds of thousands chanting Kenyatta’s name poured onto the streets of towns across the country after figures were released in the early hours of Saturday morning, dressed in the red colours of Kenyatta’s party.Kenyatta will likely become the second African leader the ICC wants to put on trial, even as both he and Ruto protest their innocence and have repeatedly said they would cooperate with the court.“We recognise and accept our international obligations and we will continue to co-operate with all nations and international institutions,” Kenyatta said in his first public speech after winning the vote.But he added – to roars of applause from his supporters packed into a giant hall – that the international community should also “respect our sovereignty”.Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir faced trial on war crimes charges at the ICC when he was re-elected in 2010, but has always defied an arrest warrant from the court.- © AFP, 2013Read: Polls open as Kenya votes in crucial election >last_img read more

Le numérique se fait une place sur le marché de la musique

20 Sep 2019

first_imgLe numérique se fait une place sur le marché de la musiqueSi le marché de la musique accuse encore une baisse à l’issue du premier trimestre 2011, le téléchargement et le streaming légaux suivent la tendance inverse. Hadopi semble porter ses fruits, se réjouit le Syndicat national de l’édition phonographique (SNEP)A l’issue du premier trimestre 2011, le numérique représente 22% du marché de la musique, contre 16% il y a un an. Une excellente nouvelle pour le SNEP qui reste malgré tout prudent. “C’est la première fois que le numérique représente plus de 20% du marché. Il va falloir attendre le premier semestre pour voir si cette tendance se confirme”, a souligne David El Sayegh, directeur général du syndicat cité par ZDnet. Les sites proposant de la musique en téléchargement légal et en streaming ont vu leur nombre d’abonnés considérablement grimper au premier trimestre. D’après le bilan du SPN, Deezer et Spotify ont enregistré une hausse des abonnements de 57%, tandis que les téléchargements de titres à l’unité ont augmenté de 8%.Pendant ce temps, les ventes de CD continuent à chuter. Le SPN annonce en effet une baisse de 9,3% en partie compensée par le numérique et les ventes de places de concerts. Globalement, le marché de la musique affiche ainsi une baisse de 5%, pour passer à 122 millions d’euros. Cet essor du téléchargement légal est-il la conséquence de la riposte graduée d’Hadopi ? Le SNEP l’espère et cite une récente étude Nielsen qui indique que les sites de peer-to-peer ont perdu 1,2 million de visiteurs depuis que l’Hadopi a envoyé ses premiers mails d’avertissement. Toutefois parmi ces déserteurs, nombre se sont tournés vers d’autres modes de téléchargement illégal.Le 18 mai 2011 à 17:00 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Neighbors in Orchards detain struggling intruder until sheriffs deputy arrives

16 Sep 2019

first_imgWhen an intruder forced his way into a family’s home in Orchards late Friday night, neighbors grabbed him and held him until sheriff’s deputies and police officers arrived.It was shortly after 10 p.m. Friday when the man entered a mobile home in the 11600 block of Northeast 71st Street uninvited, said Sgt. K.C. Kasberg with the Clark County Sheriff’s Office. The folks who live there told the man to get out. Someone called 911 and neighbors pinned the man on the ground.Deputy Joe McLoughlin, the first to arrive, radioed for assistance as he worked to handcuff the struggling man. Several officers with the Sheriff’s Office and Vancouver Police Department rushed to help but, seconds later, officials radioed that the situation was under control.Officers took the man to a hospital for a mental evaluation, Kasberg said later Friday night. It wasn’t believed the intruder knew the occupants of the home he broke into, and it was thought he might have had a mental or drug-related problem.When the man is released from the hospital, he’ll be taken to the jail on suspicion of burglary and assault, Kasberg said.Only one person was hurt, a neighbor who helped detain the man and suffered a minor wrist injury.The neighbors did a good job of detaining the man, Kasberg said.John Branton: 360-735-4513 or john.branton@columbian.com.last_img read more

They welcomed the series of business matching efforts to establish India-Japan cooperation, such as the prospective technology collaboration between Kawasaki and BHEL,” the joint statement issued on Thursday said.On the occasion of laying the foundation stone of the project, newly appointed Railway minister Piyush Goyal, advanced the project deadline by a year and said India will adopt this technology, innovate and then export it to other countries.”Both sides will explore further strengthening of partnership in high-speed railways. They also recognised that there is potential for further collaboration between India and Japan in the modernisation and expansion of the conventional railway system and the construction of metro rails in India,” the joint statement added.BHEL has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for the bullet train project, which will have to be translated to a technology collaboration agreement, the business daily reported.The public sector giant plans to manufacture specialised aluminium coaches required for the bullet train either at its Jhansi or Bhopal facility.

03 Sep 2019

first_imgThe author of a book that is highly critical of Donald Trump’s first year as US president said his revelations were likely to bring an end to Trump’s time in the White House.Michael Wolff told BBC radio that his conclusion in “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House”– that Trump is not fit to do the job — was becoming a widespread view.“I think one of the interesting effects of the book so far is a very clear emperor-has-no-clothes effect,” Wolff said in an interview broadcast on Saturday.“The story that I have told seems to present this presidency in such a way that it says he can’t do his job,” Wolff said.“Suddenly everywhere people are going ‘oh my God, it’s true, he has no clothes’. That’s the background to the perception and the understanding that will finally end … this presidency.”Trump has dismissed the book as full of lies. It depicts a chaotic White House, a president who was ill-prepared to win the office in 2016, and Trump aides who scorned his abilities.Trump took to Twitter late on Friday to renew his attacks on Wolff, and on his former top aide Steve Bannon who was quoted in the book.“Michael Wolff is a total loser who made up stories in order to sell this really boring and untruthful book,” Trump said. “He used Sloppy Steve Bannon, who cried when he got fired and begged for his job. Now Sloppy Steve has been dumped like a dog by almost everyone. Too bad!”Bannon, formerly Trump’s chief strategist, is chairman of the so-called alt-right Breitbart News websiteIn his interview with the BBC, Wolff was asked if he believed that Bannon felt Trump was unfit to serve as president and would try to bring him down. “Yes,” Wolff replied.He also hit back at claims that the book was untruthful.“This is what’s called reporting. This is how you do it.” he said. “You ask people, you get as close as you can to the event, you interview the people who were privy to the event, you interview other people who were privy to the event, you come to know the circumstance as well as anybody and then you report it.”last_img read more

Can Riot just make a featurelength animated League of Legends movie alr

01 Sep 2019

first_imgIt may just be another ploy to get you to spend real-world money in their video game, but Riot’s release of their Project: Overdrive skins has fans saying “shut up and take my money.”Skins in League of Legends are basically new outfits and redesigns of their giant roster of Champions, which Riot has gotten smart about and have been tailoring themes towards certain fan bases. Last year the company put out a cyborg skin for Yasuo, which was an instant hit. As a follow up, Riot released five new skin-jobs for Fiora, Leona, Lucian, Master Yi, and Zed — and with it, a pretty awesome animated short to introduce players to the new look. Or as I like to call it, League of Tron Legends.From an artistic standpoint, it’s simply beautiful: well-rendered animations that are reminiscent of Ghost in the Shell and Tron: Uprising. Its very cyberpunk driven, and gives you a feel for these characters that are just a series of highly rendered pixels in a video game. With the other cinematic sequences Riot has put out, it’s a wonder why they haven’t tried to do their own animated film.Obviously, a feature-length movie — or even a series of short cartoons — is a huge undertaking, even for a company as large as Riot Games. This is a company whose main focus is earning bank on microtransactions, and profiting off professional gaming leagues. But, it’s not a far stretch for them to go the Blizzard route and have something more in the works. The only thing that goes against them is storytelling. Warcraft will make an interesting movie, if not a good one, simply because of the lore behind the series. The Champions of League of Legends are only so deep, but that could be a good thing from a creator standpoint — not having to sift through a ton of backstory.Until that day comes, we can just keep loading up our digital bank account to buy these new skins and enjoy what little cinematic shorts Riot tosses our way. Oh, and if you’re looking to pick up the Project: Overdrive skins, they’ll run you about 1350RP (about $10.00 USD) until September 15, then will drop down to 975RP from September 17 to 24. Why the decrease after time? Well, it’s to let super-fans get a jump on them now, and includes bonuses of exclusive loading art. Because hey, Riot has to top their near one billion dollars earned in microtransactions from last year.last_img read more
