New Leger polls suggests federal Liberals lagging Conservatives

first_imgOTTAWA — A new poll conducted by Leger for The Canadian Press suggests the governing federal Liberals have lost ground to the Conservatives over the past month.Overall, 31 per cent of respondents polled after the federal budget was released Tuesday said they would vote for Justin Trudeau’s Liberals if an election were held now, a decline of about three percentage points from February.That compared with 37 per cent who said they would back the Conservatives under leader Andrew Scheer, a one-point increase from February, while 12 per cent said they would vote NDP and eight per cent the Greens.Scheer also jumped ahead of Trudeau on the question of who would make a better prime minister as the Tory leader got the backing of 25 per cent of respondents compared with 24 per cent for Trudeau, who has been struggling to contain damage from the SNC-Lavalin affair.As for the budget, which the Liberals are hoping will help turn the page on SNC-Lavalin, 12 per cent of respondents said it was good and 19 per cent that it was bad, but 39 per cent said they didn’t really know about it.Leger’s internet-based survey, which cannot be assigned a margin of error because online polls are not considered random samples, was conducted March 19 and 20 using computer-assisted web-interviewing technology and heard from 1,529 Canadians who are eligible to vote and were recruited from the firm’s online panel.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Paul OGrady Asks London Mayor To Stop Herding Of Sheep Across London

first_imgFor the Love of Dogs star Paul O’Grady MBE has written to the Lord Mayor of London asking her to put a stop to the archaic and dangerous tradition of herding sheep across London Bridge.In his letter, the comedian, presenter, actor and writer calls on Fiona Woolf to drop the stunt and switch to a more compassionate form of fundraising that would not cause distress to animals.“I am writing to express my deep concern about the sheep who will be herded across London Bridge in a bid to raise money on 5 October, and I wanted to urge you, as the leader of the council, to replace this spectacle with another form of fundraising,” he wrote. “I understand that as Lord Mayor of the City of London, you are historically entitled to the Freedom of the City, a privilege that theoretically affords you the right to carry a naked sword in public, in addition to other equally archaic practices. I am sure that you will agree that these “rights” should not be exercised simply because they can be exercised.“I hope you will agree that sheep are not inanimate props. As someone who has had the pleasure of sharing my home with these wonderful animals, I can tell you that sheep are intelligent and complex individuals. They flock to keep safe from predators. If threatened, they all run together for a short distance and then turn to face the danger as a group. Just like humans, dogs, chickens and most other animals, sheep make different sounds to communicate different emotions, and flock mates recognise each other, even if they’ve been separated for years.“Herding sheep down a very busy London street while cars continue to speed along the road next to them shows a disregard for their welfare and needlessly causes them distress. I have no doubt that you would be able to match, if not exceed, the donations that the previous Lord Mayor received by promoting an event without the use of any animals, and compassionate Londoners would thank you for it.”Sheep are sentient, intelligent and complex animals. A University of Illinois study found that they perform nearly as well as pigs on IQ tests and have demonstrated problem-solving abilities.last_img read more

Clark announces BCs lofty goal to become Canadas top economic engine

NANAIMO, B.C. – British Columbia Premier Christy Clark took aim at Alberta Tuesday in an election-style speech where she boasted her province doesn’t need oil to be the country’s top economic generator.Speaking to a Vancouver Island economic summit, Clark said she’s set lofty goals for B.C.’s economy, which include turning the province into Canada’s No. 1 economy.She drew mild applause from the business crowd when she said B.C.’s job creation numbers are currently tops in Canada, ahead of Alberta, and B.C. has done it without oil revenues.“Fifty-seven thousand net new jobs in British Columbia, most of them are full-time,” said Clark about the Statistics Canada yearly numbers. “We’re ahead of Alberta and we don’t even have oil. We’re doing well.”Clark said her government’s year-old jobs plan, which focuses on increasing trade with China and Asia and promoting mining and exploring innovations in technology and agri-foods, has resulted in growth.She said B.C. is currently leading Canada in small-business growth numbers.Clark said trade with China has increased by 25 per cent and moves to clear up massive permit and approval backlogs in the mining sector has resulted in a 20 per cent improvement.Part of Clark’s jobs plan includes opening eight new B.C. mines and upgrading nine others currently in operation by 2015.After her speech, Clark told reporters she wants British Columbians and Canadians to know that B.C. is ahead of Alberta when it comes to job growth.She said she expects her province’s employment efforts to be a deciding factor when British Columbian’s vote in the upcoming May election.Clark’s Liberals are currently trailing well behind the Opposition New Democrats in public opinion polls.“We’re used to, in Canada, having Alberta doing better than anyone else because they have oil, which is great for the country and for Alberta, but I think it’s significant for British Columbians to recognize that we are No. 1,” said Clark.“We are No. 1 in this country, and it should be a real source of pride that even without that great natural resource, and valuable natural resource they call oil, we’re still doing better than everybody else,” she said. “That’s quite a challenge we’ve overcome.”Clark said she’s enjoying taking pokes at Alberta when it comes to measuring economic progress.“It’s a good competition to have,” she said.Her recent Alberta meeting with Alberta Premier Alison Redford was described as frosty, but Clark said B.C. is sticking to its demand that the proposed $5.5 billion Northern Gateway pipeline project meet five conditions, of which three involve environmental safety.Calgary-based Enbridge Inc. (TSX:ENB), proposes to build a twin 1,100-kilometre pipeline from northern Alberta to northwest B.C., where bitumen from the Alberta oil sands will be piped to the northwest, B.C. port of Kitimat. The product would then be loaded on supertankers and shipped to Asia.The pipeline project is currently undergoing a federal environmental review process, where many B.C. hearings have been dominated by opposition voices from First Nations, environmental groups and local citizens all concerned about the risk of a massive oil spill.Clark’s legal team has recently said they are concerned about the lack of detail of Enbridge’s environmental preparations for the pipeline.Clark didn’t mention the Northern Gateway project in her Nanaimo speech, telling reporters later, “it was a long speech already.”Clark, whose Liberal government has often been criticized for paying lacklustre attention to Vancouver Island, said her government has supported the Island’s economic and growth ventures, including airport and post-secondary education investments in Nanaimo and health-care in the Courtenay and Campbell River areas.Opposition New Democrat Leonard Krog, who holds one of the two seats in Nanaimo, said Clark didn’t make one new announcement during the speech, something the business leaders there will remember.

UN appeals for 120 million to launch massive response in stormravaged Haiti

“Hundreds have died. At least 1.4 million people need assistance at this time. Some towns and villages have been almost wiped off the map. Crops and food reserves have been destroyed. At least 300 schools have been damaged, Mr. Ban told reporters at UN Headquarters today, express his deepest condolences and sympathies to those affected by the hurricane. He said the numbers of those impacted and the needs are growing as more affected areas are reached. Moreover, tensions are already mounting as people await help. “A massive response is required,” he said, adding that UN teams are working with local officials to asses s needs. Humanitarian appeal “Today in Geneva, we launched a $120 million flash appeal covering the UN system’s nee ds for the next three months,” the Secretary-General announced, recalling that this past Friday, the UN Centra l Emergency Response Fund (CERF) allocated $5 million in emergency funds to kick-start assistance in the wake of the deadly stor m, following the release earlier in the week of a loan of $8 million dollars to the UNICEF to scale up response to the worsening cholera epidemic in Haiti. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon expresses strong solidarity with people of Haiti in aftermath of Hurricane Matthew as UN launches flash appeal. Credit: UN News CentreThe so-called Flash Appeal , launched by the UN on behalf of the international humanitarian community, requests $119,850 to respond to “the most urgent needs” of people impacted by the storm, which ma de landfall in Haiti on 4 October and went on to leave a swath of devastation throughout the Caribbean and the South-east ern United States. According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OC HA), the appeal targets vulnerable groups in identified priority sectors, and it takes into account the national-level c apacities and those of humanitarian partners on the ground. Over the next week, partners will develop individual projects in suppor t of sector activities and financial requirements identified in this appeal, adapting the response to the most up- to-date assessment results. In a separate statement today, UN Emergency Relief Coordinator Stephen O’Brien stressed that funding of t he appeal is urgently needed to enable humanitarian actors to respond to people most in need be fore the situation further deteriorates, including by addressing the risks posed by cholera and other deadly waterborne disea ses. “Families th at were fortunate to survive the hurricane now find themselves in a struggle to survi ve, with thousands of homes and livelihoods washed away by the storm,” he said, recalling that the country was al ready facing health challenges, including an increase in cases of cholera as well as severe food insecurity, bef ore the hurricane hit. ‘We are in a race against time,’ warns UNICEF, fearing rapid spread of di seases Mr. Ban went on to note that he is developing a new approach to the cholera situation, which will encompass support for people affected by the disease and for efforts to build sound water, sanita tion and health systems in order to help eliminate cholera in Haiti. This disaster makes it even more vital to significantly s tep up our support and to do so right now, he stressed. “The United Nations is mobilizing across all fronts to support the people , the Government and local groups such as the Red Cross in getting recovery under way as quickly as possible. I call on the internat ional community to show solidarity and generosity – and to work together effectively in responding to this emergency,” state d the Secretary-General. Meanwhile, UNICEF has warned that overflowing rivers, stagnant waters, and anim al and human corpses are perfect breeding grounds for waterborne diseases. “Every day that goes by increases t he threat of cholera. We are in a race against time to get to these children before diseases do,” Marc Vincent, UNICEF Re presentative for Haiti, said in a press statement . Even before the hurricane in Haiti, UNICEF noted that only one in three people had access to proper latrines and less than three in five to safe water. In rural areas, these rates go down to one in four for sa nitation and one in two for water. Diarrhoea is one of the main killers of children under-five in the country. “Haiti has one of the highest incidence rates of cholera in the world,” underscored Mr . Vincent. “Almost 10,000 people have died from the disease since 2010 and more than 27,000 suspected cas es have been reported so far this year, an estimated one in three of them children,” he added. Since the 2010 outbreak, UNICEF, in partnership with the Haitian government and va rious partners, has been fighting waterborne diseases – including cholera – by improving access to water, sani tation and health services for Haitian children and their families, while promoting rapid response to cholera cases. From that time until now, UNICEF has established or maintained 1,270 oral rehydrati on points and 149 cholera treatment units in high-risk areas where nearly 140,000 suspected cases were treated. In June an d July of this year alone, the agency responded to more than 1,000 cholera alerts in all 10 departments of the country, benefit ing about 8,000 households. “With the hurricane’s devastating impact on an already fragile system, UNIC EF will continue to scale up its cholera response and address the emerging water and sanitation needs,” vowed Mr. Vincent, n oting that key components of UNICEF’s immediate response include acquiring water purification table ts, treating collective water sources, and setting up latrines in temporary shelters and informal settlements. The western cities of Les Cayes and Jeremie suffered the full force the Ca tegory 4 hurricane – sustaining heavy rains, winds and water damage across wide areas. In the midst of the crisis, pregnant women are also among some of the most vulnerabl e, the UN says. According to the UN Population Fund (UNPFA), some 8,400 women are expected to give birth in the n ext three months and another 1,200 could need Caesarean sections. These numbers are in addition to at leas t 280,000 women of childbearing age in the affected areas who will need quality health services in the coming months. To help respond to this urgency, the UN agency is sending 252 emergency reproductive heal th kits that will provide equipment, medicines and supplies for safe deliveries, voluntary family p lanning, rape treatment and other services for 450,000 people for the next three months. read more

Big Ten aiming to dethrone SEC

NEW ORLEANS — Even before the suspensions of six players last week, Ohio State was going to be faced with questions about its 0-9 bowl record against the SEC when it arrived in New Orleans. Now, the Buckeyes will attempt to diffuse the controversy surrounding Tattoo-gate in addition to their winless streak against the SEC. The streak has taken on a life of its own, mainly because of OSU’s recent national title game debacles against Florida and LSU. Senior defensive back Jermale Hines said the Buckeyes’ struggles against the SEC stay with them no matter how much they would like to forget about their past. “It’s always something in the back of our minds because it’s real,” Hines said. “The last couple outings we got destroyed by SEC teams.” Offensive guard Bryant Browning takes a different approach when it comes to the streak: ignorance. “I really haven’t watched too much of that kind of stuff” in the media, Browning said. “You can’t really worry about what people say. We’ve got to focus on ourselves.” Tonight OSU will face off against Arkansas in the 77th Allstate Sugar Bowl, nearly 32 years to the day that the Buckeyes were handed their first bowl game defeat at the hands of an SEC team. On Jan. 2, 1978, Paul “Bear” Bryant’s Alabama Crimson Tide destroyed the Woody Hayes-led Scarlet and Gray, 35-6. The players, including Browning, have echoed the sentiments of OSU coach Jim Tressel, who has implored them to remain focused on the task at hand. “We know if we go in and play any team in the nation and we play our best game, then we’ll come out on top,” Browning said. “We’re just working hard to try to do whatever it takes so that when Jan. 4 comes around we’re at our best.” That may be easier said than done against an Arkansas passing offense ranked third in the nation. Junior quarterback Ryan Mallett has led the Razorback attack, throwing for 30 touchdowns and 3,500 yards in back-to-back years. Although the Arkansas offense will be pass-heavy, it can also run the ball effectively with sophomore running back Knile Davis. When OSU faced Florida in 2007 and LSU in 2008, it went up against balanced offenses and gave up a combined 79 points. The winless streak against the SEC may be very real, but at least one OSU player doesn’t believe in the “SEC speed” theory, which fans and pundits alike claim gives the SEC the ultimate advantage on the playing field. “As far as the speed thing goes, I never have thought that that was the difference-maker,” said senior wide receiver Dane Sanzenbacher. “People don’t just get slower when they come to the Big Ten.” Senior kicker Devin Barclay is looking forward to the opportunity to disprove the doubters, and reminds everyone that OSU is playing Arkansas, not the ghosts of SEC past. “We’ve really got to focus in on doing our thing. Obviously the games in 2006 and 2007 … we remember those games — they sting still, and they were against SEC teams. (But) they weren’t against Arkansas,” Barclay said. “There’s always been the press saying that we can’t compete against these SEC teams. It’s going to feel good to prove them wrong.” read more

8 things we learned from watching The Armstrong Lie

first_img1. Journalists were “laughing” in the press room in 1999 when Armstrong won his first Tour de France(David Walsh consistently accused Armstrong of doping — INPHO/Billy Stickland)As he was recovering from cancer at the time, Armstrong missed the 1998 tour, which was the year that countless cyclists were charged with doping. Unsurprisingly, it was then the fastest tour ever recorded and consequently, cycling authorities were hoping for a slower race now that the sport was supposedly clean. However, tellingly, in 1999 — the year Armstrong won for the first time — the Tour was faster than ever. Hence, it’s no surprise that, as David Walsh notes in the film, even at the time, most journalists were highly skeptical of Armstrong’s feat.2. The film takes its title from a L’Equipe article(Lance Armstrong, pictured during an interview — YouTube screengrab)As early as 2005, L’Equipe were accusing Armstrong of doping — with an extensive investigative piece claiming that Armstrong had taken EPO to facilitate his multiple Tour de France successes. Interestingly though, the film neglects to mention Paul Kimmage aside from his infamous confrontation with Lance Armstrong at a 2009 press conference (see below). David Walsh, however, is interviewed, and his book, L.A. Confidential: The Secrets of Lance Armstrong, which was successfully banned from shops in America at Armstrong’s behest, gets a mention too. Moreover, the doubt and uncertainty that surrounded Armstrong is reflected by L’Equipe, which the film points out, as they ran an article that contrasted starkly with their previous accusations and carried the headline ‘Bravo Lance,’ following his 2009 Tour de France comeback.3. Betsy Andreu became “obsessed” with speaking out against Armstrong once her husband was virtually ostracised from the cycling world(Betsy Andreu smiles at the press conference for The Armstrong Lie – Evan Agostini/AP/Press Association Images)It is alleged that Armstrong helped ostracise Frankie Andreu from the cycling world, after Andreu decided he would no longer dope. It was the final straw for his wife Betsy, who began to make publicly known details of the Texan’s cheating.4. The filmmaker was “rooting for” Lance(Director Alex Gibney poses for photographers during a photo call for The Armstrong Lie — David Azia/AP/Press Association Images)Director Alex Gibney was originally hired to make a film about Lance Armstrong’s 2009 comeback. Gibney says that while he was “not naive” about past doping allegations, he “couldn’t help but root for the old pro”. The film thus contains several interviews with Armstrong before he came clean, as well as one following his confession. At one point, Armstrong apologises to Gibney for “f**king up” his documentary. The comment is ostensibly a reference to his failure to win the 2009 Tour de France, however Gibney in hindsight describes how there seemed to be a confessional element to his comments.5. Armstrong didn’t know what Kimmage looked like before THAT press conferenceYouTube credit: Cyclefilm – Cycling Media ProductionThe revelation may seem odd, given that Paul Kimmage was also once a professional cyclist himself, so it surely wouldn’t take much effort to discover what he looked like. However, Armstrong was aware that Kimmage was writing scathing articles about him and also “knew that he was Irish”. He adds that, on his way to the infamous 2009 Tour of California press conference in which the two came into conflict, Armstrong received a call informing him that Kimmage was “asking all kinds of crazy questions”. Thus, Armstrong consciously prepared himself for the inevitable argument that ensued with one of his most vocal critics.6. The film suggests Armstrong’s absent father had a considerable impact on his psyche(A young Lance Armstrong with his mother — YouTube screengrab)Gibney’s movie briefly looks back on Armstrong’s childhood background in Texas. He was born to a single mother and never met his father. It describes how even from a young age, Armstrong was prone to getting into heated arguments, and in one particular instance, responded to a rival’s criticism with the words “you’re not my father”. It is then suggested that Armstrong maintained this inherent disobedience from thereon in whenever he was confronted by a detractor.7. Lance “took it easy” at times during his Tour de France wins(Lance Armstrong holds the winner’s trophy after winning his seventh straight Tour de France — PETER DEJONG/AP/Press Association Images)Armstrong was highly conscious of the fact that the legitimacy of his performances increasingly began to stretch credibility. Therefore, it is revealed that he “took it easy” for parts of his races when it was clear he was going to win, in order to make the victories seem more believable.8. Other cyclists and associates were amazed that Armstrong decided to come back(Lance Armstrong, pictured at the 2009 Tour de France — BAS CZERWINSKI/AP/Press Association Images)Interviewees speak of their astonishment that Armstrong chose to return to cycling in 2009, when he had previously retired. It’s suggested that the disgraced cyclist might never have been caught had he decided to stay away from cycling for good after acquiring seven consecutive Tour de France wins. Even Armstrong himself told Oprah that “we wouldn’t be sitting here now” were it not for his comeback. However, perhaps it’s no real surprise for two reasons — Armstrong’s competitive urge is virtually an addiction evocatively summarised by his admittance that for him, “losing equals death”. In addition, Armstrong’s arrogance was clear — he retrospectively discusses how he was “very confident” that he would never get caught by the authorities.The Armstrong Lie can be seen in Irish cinemas from 31 January.Film set to be made about Roy Keane’s childhood>Irish athlete Ciarán O’Lionáird backs LGBT protests at Winter Olympics>last_img read more

Doodle Charles Dickens un conteur marqué par la misère de son enfance

first_imgDoodle : Charles Dickens, un conteur marqué par la misère de son enfanceEn ce 7 février, Google a décidé de rendre hommage à l’un des écrivains les plus populaires du XIXe siècle : Charles Dickens. L’auteur d’Oliver Twist et de David Copperfield est né il y a tout juste 200 ans. Un homme grincheux en pyjama, une jeune fille avec un chapeau à ruban, un petit garçon à casquette adossé à un réverbère : cela ne vous rappelle rien ? Pourtant, ces personnages et notamment le dernier ont été portés à l’écran à de nombreuses reprises. Et oui, il s’agit bien du célébrissime jeune orphelin Oliver Twist qui figure aujourd’hui sur la page d’accueil de Google. Car en ce 7 février, l’équipe Doodle du géant américain a décidé de rendre hommage à un grand écrivain anglais : Charles Dickens né il y a tout juste 200 ans. C’est dans un petit faubourg de Portsmouth dans le comté du Hampshire que le jeune Charles voit le jour. Fils d’une famille peu fortunée, il passe une enfance heureuse malgré les multiples déménagements qui conduisent ses parents, ses frères et soeurs et lui à vivre à Londres pendant deux ans puis à Chatham en 1817. Son père est alors chargé de faire la paye des équipages de la Navy mais au fil des années, les revenus se font de plus en plus maigres, obligeant la famille à revenir à Londres en 1822. Au cours des années suivantes, la situation va alors grandement se compliquer pour les Dickens.En 1824, le jeune Charles qui avait connu jusqu’ici une scolarité chaotique doit quitter l’école et se mettre à travailler dans un entrepôt de cirage où il est employé à coller des étiquettes sur les flacons. Une expérience qui va profondément marquer le jeune garçon et s’ajouter à un second évènement choquant : l’emprisonnement de son père pour dettes. Faire face au monde du travail et à la misère le bouleverse. Et si John Dickens ne fera que quelques semaines de prison, les années suivantes n’amènent aucun changement quant à la situation financière de la famille. En 1824, Charles entre à la Wellington House Academy, une école privée dans laquelle il poursuivra ses études jusqu’en 1827. Des feuilletons périodiques qui conquièrent les lecteursAprès ces trois années, il recommence à travailler mais cette fois-ci dans les cours de justice où il exercera comme reporter sténographe avant de devenir reporter parlementaire. Néanmoins, ce n’est qu’en 1833 que Charles, alors âgé de 21 ans, va commencer à laisser courir sa plume. Cette année-là, il commence à écrire des histoires qui sont publiées dans certains journaux et magazines, notamment dans le Monthly Magazine. Mais celles-ci restent discrètes, jusqu’à ce que le Morning Herald republie ces histoires sous le titre des Esquisses de Boz. Ceci ouvre la voie en 1836 à des publications bien plus importantes.Tous les mois dans ce même journal, parait un épisode des Aventures de M. Pickwick qui connaissent un succès immédiat et retentissant. Pour Charles Dickens, c’est alors le début d’une période très créative qui va voir naitre ces principaux chefs d’oeuvre. En effet, le prochain feuilleton qu’il imagine n’est autre qu’Oliver Twist, l’une des créations les plus connues de l’auteur. Celle-ci raconte les aventures d’un jeune orphelin qui essaie tant bien que mal de survivre à un monde cruel qui le maltraite et le force à voler. Une histoire dont Charles Dickens a tiré les détails dans les souvenirs de sa propre enfance  À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Entre temps, il épouse en 1836 Catherine Hogarth avec qui il aura dix enfants entre 1837 et 1852, ce qui ne freine en rien son imagination. Dès 1838, il entame ainsi une autre de ces oeuvres principales, la Vie et les aventures de Nicholas Nickleby en revue mensuelle, puis, en épisodes hebdomadaires. Viennent ensuite Le Magasin d’antiquités, Barnaby Rudge et enfin les Notes américaines, écrit en 1842 suite à un voyage au pays de l’oncle Sam. Au cours des années suivantes, il multiplie encore les expériences avec le premier de ses cinq livres de Noël Un chant de Noël et un livre de voyage.  Des histoires qui mêlent aventure et humour  En 1849, est publiée toujours sous forme de feuilleton, une autre des créations majeures de l’auteur, David Copperfield, “l’enfant préféré de Dickens”. L’oeuvre raconte notamment la vie d’un jeune garçon qui doit subvenir aux besoins de sa tante en travaillant mais qui finit par devenir écrivain. Une histoire qui est sans surprise en grande partie basée sur la propre existence de Charles Dickens devenu au fil des années un écrivain riche et reconnu. En 1858, le romancier se sépare de sa femme mais s’avère toujours aussi prolifique avec La Petite Dorrit, Les Grandes espérances (salué par certains comme son meilleur roman), Notre ami commun et enfin Le Mystère d’Edwin Drood qui restera inachevé. Charles Dickens meurt le 9 juin 1870 dans sa maison de campagne à l’âge de 58 ans. Mondialement connu, l’écrivain reste aujourd’hui l’un des plus populaires de sa génération grâce à son remarquable talent de conteur qui lui permettait de mêler aventures rebondissantes, humour et critiques acérées de la société de l’époque.

As Oil Tax Referendum Nears Dems Try Making Bet With Governor

first_imgA pair of Anchorage Democrats are calling on Gov. Sean Parnell to pass legislation serving as a guarantee that the new oil tax system will lead to more production on the North Slope.State Sens. Hollis French and Bill Wielechowski announced on Tuesday that they want Parnell to call a special session and pass a bill that would add a sunset to the new tax system, which caps oil taxes at 35 percent. Using a 55-gallon Citgo drum and a one-dollar bill as props, French explained that the idea was to have the state go back to the old system should Parnell’s new tax law not result in at least one more 42-gallon barrel of production — or one more dollar of revenue — than is currently forecast for the year 2019.FRENCH: So, we’re here today to present a challenge to the governor – a very simple challenge. The challenge boils down to two readily available ideas that Alaskans can understand: a barrel, a barrel of oil, and a dollar, a dollar of revenue.French and Wielechowski said they would withdraw their support for an August ballot referendum to repeal that same law, were Parnell to support their idea.That’s not going to happen. Shortly after the press conference, House Speaker Mike Chenault issued a statement calling the proposal “political theater” and “sour grapes” from the Legislature’s Democratic Minority. The Vote No on One campaign, an industry group that wants to keep the new tax law in place, also characterized the proposal as a stunt. The governor’s office did not return a request for comment.last_img read more

Jeffrey Epsteins Criminal Case Closed Af

first_img Scott Heins by NPR News Colin Dwyer 8.29.19 4:30pm Less than three weeks after Jeffrey Epstein’s apparent suicide in prison, a federal judge has formally closed the sex trafficking case against the wealthy financier. On Thursday, Judge Richard Berman of the Southern District of New York approved a request filed by prosecutors to dismiss the charges.”Because Jeffrey Epstein, the defendant, died while this case was pending, and therefore before a final judgment was issued, the Indictment must be dismissed under rule of abatement,” Berman wrote, referring to the rule under which, if a defendant dies midway through a case, their indictment is wiped clean.The decision brings an unsatisfying end to a criminal case that captured the attention of the country — but it does not close the door on future legal matters involving his estate or his associates. Several of Epstein’s accusers have filed major lawsuits against his estate since he was discovered unresponsive in his cell earlier this month, and federal authorities have repeatedly vowed to pursue the co-conspirators who supported his alleged operation.Prosecutors and accusers say that from at least the early 2000s, Epstein and his network of friends recruited girls as young as 14 years old, misled them, and forced them to have sex with him and other prominent men. Though suspicions long lingered around the financier, he eluded attempts to get him to stand trial — including in 2008, when he accepted a lenient plea deal that meant only about a year in jail for the sex crime he admitted.The deal was so lenient, in fact, that after its details surfaced, the controversy led to the resignation of Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta, who negotiated the agreement back when he was a U.S. attorney in Florida.This time around, Epstein’s accusers at least got the opportunity to tell their stories in an unusual hearing on Tuesday. At that hearing, more than a dozen women came forward to tell stories of how Epstein tricked, coerced and sexually assaulted them, often when they were still underage.”Jeffrey Epstein ruined me. His recruiter ruined me,” said one accuser, who signed her statement “Jane Doe” and released it through her attorney, Lisa Bloom. “The far reaching consequences of that day [that I was recruited] ruined my family’s lives.”Another accuser, Teala Davies, succinctly summed up the hearing for reporters outside the Manhattan courthouse afterward: “All I’m going to say is today was a day of power and strength.”It was also a day of disappointment. Many of the women in the courtroom expressed just how devastated they were to receive the news that he had taken his own life and once more avoided trial.But it’s not over. At the hearing Tuesday, prosecutors vowed that the dismissal of charges “in no way lessens the government’s resolve to stand up for the victims in this case.” The next day, the FBI released a new call for his alleged victims to contact the agency with their stories.Copyright 2019 NPR.
