first_imgBy Bill Brioux – The Canadian Press Korey Sam, 31, and Ivana Krunic, 30, friends and co-workers from Toronto, both work as personal trainers. While they’ve dated friends they’ve never dated each other. “Which is good,” says Ivana, who was born in Bosnia and lived in Germany as a child. “If Korey looks at another girl, I’m not going to be, ‘Later.’ I’ll be, ‘She’s cute.’ It’s platonic but it’s great. There’s no tension.” LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement Kenneth McAlpine, 25, and Ryan LaChapelle, 25, best friends from Collingwood, Ont., who call themselves Team Give’r. “That’s us,” says Kenneth. “We give’r all we got, full commitment, 100 per cent.” These two well-travelled surfer dudes will be easy to spot in their Hawaiian shirts. Think of them as mellower, sober Trailer Park Boys. CLICK THE PICS FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT EACH TEAM Good thing one of the teams competing this summer are undertakers. Megan Burden, 23, and Courtney Roberts, 21, small town cousins with no filter from St. Lunaire-Griquet and Corner Brook, Nfld. It’s win the “Amazing Race” or bust for Megan, who, when asked what she’d do with the grand prize money, answers without hesitation: “I’m probably going to buy fake boobs. It’s something I’ve wanted since I was 10.” “Yes, we are running in our suits,” says Deb, 54, who insists she has a fun job. “People come in grieving and for some reason I get them laughing.” Among the other teams: Dan Kipnis, 23, and Riya Malik, 23, friends and YouTube stars from Richmond Hill, Ont. The two have been best friends since Dan offered to ride a ski lift with new girl Riya on a Grade 4 class trip. Their “Dan & Riya” YouTube channel deals with pop culture and millennial life, with one video recently passing the 14 million views mark. “We try to make the race harder every year,” says executive producer John Brunton, who feels the new cast truly represents all of Canada. “They’re going to remind viewers of themselves, or of their sons or daughters, older sisters or whoever. Relatability is the key.” Among them are Deb and Aaron Baker, a mother and son team from the B.C. border town of Grand Forks. The two funeral directors refer to each other as “last responders.” They should be easy to spot during the competition: both plan to wear their dark blue funeral attire throughout the entire race.

He’ll drive and Karen will give forewarning “three streets before.” Login/Register With: Zed Dhalla, 27, and Shabbir Dhalla, 57, a father and son team from Vancouver. Zed’s the big “Race” fan, but Shabbir wanted to compete “because I’ve only got a few more years left on these legs.” Dad is also a stage 3 cancer survivor. “It was very much a blessing in disguise,” says Shabbir. “I look at life completely differently now.” Canada’s most-watched homegrown summer series returns for a fifth season on July 4 on CTV. The network has just announced the 10 teams from all across Canada who will be competing for the grand prize, which includes $250,000, two compact SUVs, and a trip around the world for two. Deb is the second oldest contestant this summer, as teams get younger and stronger. Advertisement Sam Lambert, 25, and Paul Mitskopoulos, 24, a dating couple from Toronto. “We’ve both always been huge fans of the show, starting with the American version, watching every week with our families,” says Paul, who met Sam on a dating app almost two years ago. “It’s been love ever since.” Andrea Croxen, 29, and Ebonie Roberge, 29, friends and business partners from Montreal, are ex-models who met when they were 16 at a bridal fashion show. “This is really a year of taking risks for us,” says Ebonie. The pair just launched their own business running fitness retreats in Costa Rica last year. Adam Cavaleri, 29, and Andrea Cavaleri, 28, a brother and sister team from Montreal. “I applied three years ago with my best friend,” says graphic designer Andrea. They didn’t get picked and the friend wasn’t available this year so her bartender brother stepped up. There’s always a chance a new season of “The Amazing Race Canada” could end in a dead heat.

first_imgTOKYO – YouTube said Thursday it has punished well-known blogger Logan Paul over a video that appeared to show a body hanging in a Japanese forest that is said to be a suicide spot.The company said in a statement that it has removed Paul’s channels from Google Preferred and will not feature him in the new season of the web series “Foursome.” It said his new video blogs are also on hold.Paul earlier announced he was stepping away from posting videos “to reflect” following an outcry when he uploaded images of the apparent body and his reaction to finding it in the forest.YouTube prohibits violent or gory content posted in a shocking, sensational or disrespectful manner, the company says. It issued a “strike” against Paul’s channel for violating its community guidelines after the posting.The video was viewed some 6 million times before being removed from Paul’s YouTube channel, a verified account with more than 15 million subscribers.A storm of criticism followed despite two apologies, with commenters saying Paul seemed disrespectful and that his initial apology was inadequate.Google Preferred’s advertising program aggregates top YouTube content for advertisers to buy time on them.last_img read more

first_imgRENO, Nev. – The head of one of the nation’s largest fish conservation groups says Fiat Chrysler’s Super Bowl ads “glorified” the destruction of aquatic habitat in an apparent attempt to appeal to off-road thrill-seekers.It’s the second time ads by the automaker have drawn complaints since the Feb. 4 game.Trout Unlimited President and CEO Chris Wood said Wednesday that one ad gave the impression a Jeep Cherokee was splashing down the middle of a wild streambed.Fiat Chrysler is defending the ads but says there are no plans to run them again. It says the spot with the Cherokee was shot on a flooded county road and another with a Jeep Wrangler was filmed in a man-made lake with a man-made waterfall on private land.Wood said many of his group’s 300,000 members and supporters own Jeeps, but the images were upsetting.“Fish are tough and resilient critters, but they don’t do well with several-thousand-pound vehicles driving over their spawning grounds, tearing up the gravel where they lay eggs,” he said. “Why someone would want to put out the idea that you should buy a Jeep so you could drive it up a creek is incomprehensible to me.”The Reno Gazette-Journal first reported the ad flap last week. Pam Harrington, Trout Unlimited’s Nevada field co-ordinator, told the newspaper she was upset because she’s worked with ATV clubs in Idaho repairing damage caused by irresponsible drivers.Stream habitat improvements are part of the decadeslong efforts to protect endangered salmon in the Pacific Northwest, where research shows riverbank disturbances and sedimentation chokes off fish eggs.Wood said he didn’t learn until this week that much of his membership was upset over the Jeep ads. He said he had already written a personal letter of complaint Feb. 6 to Fiat Chrysler CEO and Chairman Sergio Marchionne after Wood’s son noticed the ad during the game.The automaker also came under fire last week for another Super Bowl ad featuring a Ram pickup set against audio of “The Drum Major Instinct” sermon delivered by Martin Luther King Jr. 50 years ago.The 60-second spot included images of the truck with people helping others and hugging loved ones. Critics said it omitted King’s words in the same speech guarding against advertisers exploiting consumers, including when the civil rights icon said, “In order to make your neighbours envious you must drive this type of car. … And you know, before you know it, you’re just buying that stuff. That’s the way advertisers do it.”A company spokeswoman said that ad “was selling the message of serving in your community.”Wood, who worked as chief spokesman for the U.S. Forest Service under the Clinton administration before joining Trout Unlimited in 2001, said Fiat Chrysler apparently “got some bad marketing advice” on the Jeep campaign.He said there are plans to connect with a Jeep branch representative for a “broader conversation.”“Hopefully something good will come of this, and we can begin a dialogue with Jeep to promote smart use of off-road vehicles as well as conservation of natural resources,” Wood said.last_img read more

5 April 2010United Nations aid agencies and their partners in Niger today appealed for an additional $132 million to fund humanitarian programmes in the West African country, which is facing a severe food crisis following poor harvests caused by inadequate rainfall last year. Food shortages and malnutrition have affected an estimated 4.7 million people, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) reported in a revised emergency humanitarian action plan prepared to support the Government’s efforts to quickly mobilize additional funds.A total of $190.7 million is required, but $57.8 million of that amount is already available, leaving a deficit of $132.9 million. Requirements could, however, increase when the findings of a comprehensive humanitarian survey scheduled for later this month are released, OCHA added.In line with the national authorities’ priorities, the humanitarian country team in Niger has prioritized food security and nutritional aid, and support in health, water, sanitation, hygiene and logistics, according to OCHA.Inadequate or poor distribution of rainfall has caused large deficits in Niger’s agricultural and fodder production. Poor harvests have created a cereals deficit of more than 410,000 metric tons, while fodder shortfalls have been estimated at more than 16 million metric tons or 67 per cent of the national livestock needs. Many water sources have also dried up, adding to the hardship pastoralists are facing.UN Humanitarian Coordinator Khardiata Lo N’diaye told a news conference in New York last week that the new national authorities in Niger, which came to power on 18 February, have launched an appeal seeking international assistance.Niger underwent a coup last month, when the Supreme Council for the Restoration of Democracy (CSRD) seized control of the Government during a gun battle in the capital, Niamey.Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon condemned the coup and stressed that the UN stands ready to support initiatives aimed at peacefully resolving Niger’s political and constitutional crisis.When asked about the coup, Ms. Lo N’diaye acknowledged that a return to a democratic institution was a key priority in the country, but the facing need of the population was also a priority. “The main focus for the UN is to save lives in Niger… this support would go directly to the population and allow them to participate fully in the democratization process,” she said.The UN World Food Programme (WFP) has already more than doubled its food aid to Niger, Executive Director Josette Sheeran said last month, adding that the food situation in the country was becoming a “major humanitarian challenge.” read more

Nigel Hayes has been outspoken about race issues. (Stacy Revere/Getty Images Sport)Nigel Hayes recently graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a successful college basketball career as a Badgers forward, but a fan was more focused on his “bizarre” hairstyle.Hayes, who is the only Badger to have appeared on the college’s top 10 list for points, rebounds and assists, tweeted a letter from Jennie Madden, a self-proclaimed fan of his and UW-Madison. The note began by congratulating him for earning his degree and staying in college. But it took a turn when she slammed his hair, which he wears in locs.I guess a black male’s naturally dreaded hair in a ponytail isn’t fit for NBA teams/communities. As well as, it seems, professional society. pic.twitter.com/9zdnyygyR9— Nigel Hayes (@NIGEL_HAYES) May 17, 2017“What the heck crazy odd hairdo are you having on the top of your head??” Madden wrote. “Who wants [to sign] a handsome nice guy like you with such a bizarre hairdo as what you got?“Get to the barbers,” she wrote, recommending a local Black shop in Madison. “And get all cleaned up with a nice haircut and [side-burn] trim and [professional] appearance — then for sure you will get picked to be on a pro basketball team looking better and more classy for their team and community.”Madden felt Hayes, who has been racially targeted in the past, could “set [an] example” by “not only getting your nice college diploma — but [getting] a good appearance.”Hayes’ teammate, guard Zak Showalter, who is white, also received an email from Madden, who praised his haircut and asked to get more information to share with her brother.@NIGEL_HAYES Guess you should be more like me 🙂 pic.twitter.com/NItIJ7Mjf6— Zak Showalter (@ZShowbball333) May 17, 2017As a result of the racist email, many fans supported Hayes.@NIGEL_HAYES @HPbasketball Yeah ok… pic.twitter.com/ScHxUOZJrv— Jamal Curry (@Murray_4MVP) May 17, 2017 @NIGEL_HAYES 1st of all, congrats on graduating!

first_imgThe tough line from Brussels echoes comments by a French official last week who warned London against thinking “there’s not a deal, so I won’t pay”, saying “there’s no magic wand that makes this bill disappear.”Johnson is adamant the withdrawal agreement struck by May – rejected by parliament three times – is dead in the water and changes must be made, particularly to the backstop, if a deal is to be agreed and a no-deal exit avoided. Speaking to reporters in Clonmel today, Tánaiste Simon Coveney said news of the meeting between Johnson and Tusk was welcome. While no-one knew what had been discussed behind closed doors, there were no indications of any big breakthroughs, Coveney said. With reporting from – © AFP 2019 By Daragh Brophy 53 Comments Short URL Image: PA WIRE Brexit: UK must pay its divorce bill even in event of no-deal, EU warns It comes after Boris Johnson insisted the UK would be free from its obligations in a no-deal scenario. https://jrnl.ie/4782607 THE UK MUST pay its Brexit divorce bill even if it crashes out without a deal, the EU has warned – adding that future ties will be threatened if London fails to honour its commitments.The stern response comes a day after Boris Johnson again said that in the event of a no-deal Brexit on 31 October, the UK would be free from financial obligations to the EU.With the clock ticking and fears of no deal growing, Johnson and European Council President Donald Tusk clashed at the G7 in France on Saturday, with the British leader insisting the current divorce deal must be changed.Asked if the EU would take Britain to court to recover the money, a spokeswoman for the European Commission instead stressed that a future trade deal between Britain and the remaining 27 states could be under threat unless London paid up.“As we have said many times before, all commitments that were taken by the 28 member states should be honoured, and this is also and especially true in a no deal scenario, where the United Kingdom would be expected to honour all commitments made during EU membership,” commission spokeswoman Mina Andreeva told reporters. Monday 26 Aug 2019, 1:51 PM Rather than going into judicial action threat, I think it is important to make clear that settling accounts is essential to starting off a new relationship on the right foot based on mutual trust.Jean-Claude Piris, who served as director of the EU Council’s legal services for more than two decades, tweeted: “If the U.K. refuses to pay its debts to the EU, then the EU will not accept to negotiate a trade agreement with the U.K.”Johnson has repeatedly said that if Britain leaves without a deal it will not have to pay the €43 billion divorce bill agreed by his predecessor Theresa May.He repeated the claim again on Sunday, telling ITV that the money would be “no longer, strictly speaking, owed” and his government would be left with “very substantial sums” to spend.Downing Street has reportedly refused to say how much the UK would be prepared to pay, though a report in the London Times today quoted a figure of seven billion pounds.

first_imgEveryday Food, a cooking specialty title under the Martha Stewart Living brand, announced it would shift its focus to digital late last year as part of an organizational restructuring that would help save the company up to $35 million.Now, four months later, the publication has released the first of what will be five themed supplements to accompany Martha Stewart Living. While the print product–a 36-page, digest-sized folio–has less content that it did as a standalone 10-issue-per-year book, the brand’s emphasis has changed, says Sarah Carey, editor-in-chief of Everyday Food.”We’re not creating as many recipes every single month, but we are creating new content every day,” she says. “We’re putting a lot more energy into our blog posts, for instance, even our Instagram feed. We’re making all of the areas in which we work a little bit more interesting and full of new content.” Repurposing and promoting that content across different channels has been constant directive since the transition to a digital-first product began in November. New iPad Newsstand access and Windows 8 apps have helped; so have daily newsletters and, particularly, videos.Though Carey’s team has been producing cooking videos since last summer, they fit in well with the magazine’s new mission now. “We’re putting a lot more energy and focus on it,” Carey says, who appears on-screen in most of the clips. “We’re trying to engage the users on different levels.””Making cooking fun” is core to the brand, she says, so injecting her personality into editorial content allows her to do that.While Everyday Food increases its focus on digital, part of the magazine’s challenge lies in maintaining a relationship with its print readers. The magazine had a circulation of more than 1 million, per the Alliance for Audited Media, a number that had stayed relatively constant since 2009.”We’re figuring out ways to transition people to the web on a more frequent and daily basis,” Carey says. “We’re making it very clear that they have access to this and where they can find it and the different ways they can find it online.”With the release of the Everyday Food Extra supplement, integrating the web and print properties will be critical in the immediate future and moving forward. References and links to a customized video player are included in the digital version of the magazine, pointing readers to the site, and they’re directly embedded in the iPad edition. Richard Fontaine, senior vice president of consumer marketing for Martha Stewart Living, says that it’s too soon to make a determination on how the brand has performed on that front however.”It’s too early to discuss any significant growth in Everyday Food’s digital audience,” he says. “We are actively promoting Sarah’s daily videos through email subscription and our video distribution platforms, consistently growing the audience every month, and that platform provides us with an opportunity to reach and engage our audience with new content on a daily basis.”As a whole, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, released their fourth quarter and year-end results today, reporting lower revenues and higher operating losses year-over-year.Its publishing arm took a $3.5 million hit in revenues in Q4, down to $35.3 million, citing “lower print and digital advertising revenues as well as lower circulation revenues.”To stay updated on the latest FOLIO: news, become a Facebook fan and follow us on Twitter!last_img read more

The driver then ran into the Palaces of Westminster wielding a knife with which he stabbed a police officer, before he was shot by police and killed.The police officer has since been confirmed as dead. The deceased attacker is believed to have acted alone. Police are asking members of the public to hand over any video or images of the incident to assist with the investigation.Prime Minister Theresa May expressed her condolences to the families of those people killed and injured and said:“We will all move forward together, never giving in to terror and never allowing the voices of hate and evil to drive us apart.”World leaders, including US President Donald Trump, have expressed their condolences and offered their support to the UK.IMAGE: By The New York Times.
