“There is clear evidence that racial profiling is endemic in the strategies and practices used by law enforcement,” said Ricardo Sunga, who currently heads the UN Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent, in a news release issued following its official visit to the country. “Arbitrary use of ‘carding’ or street checks disproportionately affects people of African descent,” he added. “We urge the Government to develop and implement an African Canadian justice strategy to address the anti-Black racism and discrimination within the criminal justice system,” Mr. Sunga stated. From 17 to 21 October, a delegation of the Working Group visited Ottawa, Toronto, Halifax and Montreal to gain first-hand knowledge on racial discrimination, Afrophobia, xenophobia, and related intolerance affecting African-Canadians.“In our conversation with African Canadians, we found that Canada’s history of enslavement, racial segregation, and marginalization, has had a deleterious impact on people of African descent which must be addressed in partnership with African Canadian communities,” Mr. Sunga stressed.The delegation, which also included human rights experts Michal Balcerzak and Ahmed Reid, welcomed ongoing efforts by the new administration to revitalize efforts to address racial discrimination faced by people of African descent and to promote human rights, diversity and inclusion in partnership with African Canadian communities and civil society organizations promoting the rights of people African descent.“We welcome, among other measures, the recent establishment of the Anti-Racism Directorate to address systemic racism and promote fair practices and policies across Ontario province,” Mr. Sunga said.The experts also promoted the International Decade for People of African Descent, which runs from 2015 to 2024, and aims both to highlight the contribution of people of African descent to societies and strengthen national, regional and international cooperation to ensure the human rights of people of African descent are respected, protected and fulfilled.The Working Group will present a report containing its findings and recommendations to the UN Human Rights Council in September 2017. read more

first_imgProsecutor Patricia Deighan said the images “include moving images and they include very young children – a boy of eleven or twelve, a girl nine or ten and an indecent image of an infant”. In total, the police recovered 225 category A images, 345 category B images and 719 of category C images, which were downloaded sometime before 24 January.Eight people were killed and 48 injured in the London Bridge attack on June 3. Harris had been celebrating getting a new job that night, but he was not able to take up the position.Killers Khuram Shazad Butt, Rachid Redouane and Youssef Zaghba were all shot dead by police. Harris featured on a JustGiving page on July 6, which has raised more than £7,000. Along with the many donations to Harris are comments that call him a “legend” and a “hero”.The court heard that Harris moved back to Northumberland to live with his mother after the attack, which affected his ability to work and he is prescribed anti-depressants.Harris, of Ashington, Northumberland, admitted three counts of making indecent images of children at Highbury Magistrates’ Court.He was given a nine month sentence suspended for two years, must undergo a 60-day rehabilitation activity requirement.He will also be subject to a five-year sexual harm prevention order and ten years on the sex offenders’ register.

She says there are certain risks to your receiving a custodial sentence and that you have engaged with her in the process of overcoming these interests that you have.” A victim of the London Bridge terror attack has avoided prison for downloading child abuse images after a court heard that being stabbed helped to put a halt to his behaviour.Adam Harris, 38, was in a bar when three jihadists went on the rampage and was knifed twice, Blackfriars Crown Court heard.Five months before, he had been caught with more than 1,000 still images and more than 100 videos of children on his phone and computer.His defence lawyer, Judith Benson, told the judge that the terror attack meant Harris received counselling that helped him to address his behaviour.”In June 2017 he began to take steps to address the behaviour that led to this, in short he was abused as a child,” Ms Benson said.”He began to receive counselling for the PTSD from being stabbed during the London bridge attacks. He has been left with extreme anxiety, depression and as a result of that was provided counselling and in the course of that dealt with the sexual abuse.”Video: How the London Bridge attack happenedlast_img read more

A budget of $600,000 is nearly doubled what it was last academic year and it is expected to make a major difference in the repair process during this summer break. It was announced that the public would not see too many cosmetics like painting of the facilities but there is in depth work happening, considered far more important, like maintenance to walls, electrical repairs, installment of perimeter fencing for safety, fans and lights will be replaced, public health standards must be met and some plumbing; all new. These jobs are more expensive and will absorb much of the bigger budget allotted by the PNP Administration for the upcoming school year. While there is no work happening in Provo at this time, there is work already started in North and Middle Caicos and South Caicos which between them has six public schools. The biggest of the refurbishment projects is at Clement Howell High School, here in Provo; next is the HJ Robinson High in Grand Turk. Work is forecast to be done in time for school reopening in September.

first_imgRahaf Mohammed al-Qunun, a Saudi woman who claims to be fleeing her country and family, is seen in Bangkok, Thailand, on 7 January 2019 in this still image taken from a video obtained from social media. — Reuters via TwitterThe United Nations has asked Australia to consider refugee resettlement for an 18-year-old Saudi woman who fled to Thailand saying she feared her family would kill her, the Australian government said on Wednesday.The teenager, Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun, arrived in Bangkok on the weekend appealing for asylum. Australia said it would consider resettling her if the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) deemed her a refugee.“The UNHCR has referred Ms Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun to Australia for consideration for refugee resettlement,” Australia’s Department of Homeland Security said in an email.The department said it would consider the referral “in the usual way, as it does with all UNHCR referrals”. It declined to comment further.The UNHCR office in Thailand also declined to comment.Qunun arrived in Bangkok on Saturday and was initially denied entry.She soon started posting messages on Twitter from the transit area of Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi airport saying she had “escaped Kuwait” and her life would be in danger if forced to return to Saudi Arabia.Within hours, a campaign sprung up on Twitter, spread by a loose network of activists around the world.Within 36 hours it prompted Thailand’s government to reverse a decision to force the young woman onto a plane that would return her to her family.She was allowed to enter Thailand and on Tuesday began the process of seeking asylum in a third country through the UN refugee agency.Her case has drawn new global attention to Saudi Arabia’s strict social rules, including a requirement that women have the permission of a male “guardian” to travel, which rights groups say can trap women and girls as prisoners of abusive families.It comes at a time when Riyadh is facing unusually intense scrutiny from its Western allies over the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October and over the humanitarian consequences of its war in Yemen.last_img read more

first_imgBy The Associated PressLINDEN, Ala. (AP) — An African-American woman who took over the helm of a small-town Alabama newspaper that recently called for the Ku Klux Klan to “ride again” has stepped down after a few weeks, citing interference from the newspaper’s owner.Elecia R. Dexter told The New York Times on Friday that she stepped down because of continuing interference from the newspaper’s owner who had published the KKK editorial. Dexter said she wanted to maintain her “integrity and well-being.”Elecia R. Dexter (Courtesy Photo/ LinkedIn)“I would have liked it to turn out a different way, but it didn’t,” Dexter, 46, told the newspaper. “This is a hard one because it’s sad — so much good could have come out of this.”Dexter last month replaced Goodloe Sutton as editor and publisher of the Democrat-Reporter of Linden. Dexter took over after a firestorm erupted when Sutton wrote and published an editorial that began: “Time for the Ku Klux Klan to night ride again.” The editorial said Democrats and “Democrats in the Republican Party” are plotting to raise taxes, so the Klan should raid their communities.It was one of many incendiary and racially insensitive editorials published by the paper.Dexter’s appointment was heralded as a positive in the small Alabama town. She said she hoped her appointment would let the community know “this is everybody’s paper.”But Dexter told the Times that Sutton, who had retained ownership of the paper, had continually interfered in operations.Sutton did not respond to the Times’ requests for comment Friday.The paper dates to 1879 and its editorials are consistently conservative and often critical of Democrats. The use of “Democrat” in its name reflects back to the period when nearly all White conservatives in the South were Democrats.last_img read more

John Kelly, head of U.S. Southern Command, said in a statement submitted as he testified Thursday before the Senate Armed Services Committee.As Russia’s President Vladimir Putin accuses the United States of meddling in his backyard by backing the government of Ukraine against pro-Russian separatists, the U.S. general’s report emphasized that Russia is stepping up its efforts to gain influence in the Americas.“Periodically since 2008, Russia has pursued an increased presence in Latin America through propaganda, military arms and equipment sales, counterdrug agreements, and trade,” Kelly said. “Under President Putin, however, we have seen a clear return to Cold War tactics.”Starting last year, a Russian intelligence ship has docked in Havana “multiple times conducting operations in the Gulf of Mexico and along the East Coast of the United States,” he said.Russia is courting Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua “to gain access to air bases and ports for resupply of Russian naval assets and strategic bombers operating in the Western Hemisphere,” Kelly said.Related: Russia’s Putin in Cuba, Nicaragua to rekindle Latin America ties The Russian intelligence warship Viktor Leonov CCB-175 docks at the port of Havana, on Jan. 20, 2015, on the eve of historic U.S.-Cuba talks aimed at normalizing diplomatic relations. Francisco Jara/AFPU.S. President Barack Obama has moved the U.S. toward normalizing relations with Cuba, over objections from some lawmakers who say the island nation’s Communist regime can’t be trusted.Kelly also cited Russian media reports announcing that the country would begin sending long-range strategic bombers to patrol the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico to “monitor foreign powers’ military activities and maritime communications.” He didn’t say whether the U.S. has evidence that such flights have commenced.Russia’s activities don’t pose “an immediate threat” but “underscore the importance of remaining engaged with our partners” in the Americas, Kelly said.The closest the U.S. and what was then the Soviet Union came to nuclear war was during 13 days in October 1962 after the Communist nation secretly placed medium- and intermediate-range ballistic nuclear missiles in Cuba. The U.S. learned decades later that the Soviets also deployed 35 battlefield nuclear missiles and 40,000 troops, far more than the Central Intelligence Agency’s best estimate at the time of as many as 12,000 troops.Separately, Adm. William Gortney, head of the U.S. Northern Command, told the Senate committee that Russia “is progressing toward its goal of deploying long-range, conventionally armed cruise missiles with ever-increasing stand- off launch distances on its heavy bombers, submarines and surface combatants.”This non-nuclear weapon would augment “the Kremlin’s toolkit of flexible deterrent options,” if deployed, he said.See also: Costa Rica’s foreign minister accuses Russia of helping militarize Nicaragua and Nicaragua’s Ortega defends military ties with Russia© 2015, Bloomberg News Facebook Commentslast_img read more

first_img In this ‘In Charts’ series of mini-articles, Colin Fain of data visualization tool Agronometrics illustrates how the U.S. market is evolving. In each series, he will look at a different fruit commodity, focusing on a different origin or topic in each installment to see what factors are driving change.Looking over the kiwifruit data published by the USDA for Italian imports, the first thing that struck me was the variability in the pricing over the last couple of years. Italy does follow the much more stable California, indicating there is a relationship between the two origins, so I wanted to take a bit of a look at what the USDA tells us about Italian fruit on the markets as we head into the Northern Hemisphere season.US Kiwifruit Shipping Point prices by origin(Source: USDA Market News via Agronometrics)Through the volumes, we can start to see a story form that helps explain this wild ride.From the 2011-12 season to 2014-15, imports of Italian kiwifruit grew very steadily by an average annual rate of 5.9%. That period also saw prices generally go up, which is usually a great sign for any category. The 2015-16 season, however, saw a dramatic increase from 51.9 million pounds the previous season to 83.6 million pounds, sending a shock through the system and knocking prices down to the lowest levels seen for half a decade. Last year saw an average price of US$20.54 per case, a 50% increase on 2015-16. This recovery came at a price though – due to frosts and pests Italy sent just 46.8 million pounds, down 44% from 2015-16. Italian kiwifruit movements in the U.S. U.S.: “Major storms” to strike California, threate … You might also be interested in California: Heatwave to hit several major growing … October 02 , 2018 center_img Avocados in Charts: Market jumps US$5 in one week … (Source: USDA Market News via Agronometrics)As a side note, I am very happy to see that as of last season, the USDA began reporting U.S. values from the California Kiwifruit Commission to cover internal production much more completely. It’s still early days to be able to derive objective trends with only one year of complete data, but we are very much looking forward to covering California’s 2018-19 season next year.US Kiwifruit Movements by origin(Source: USDA Market News via Agronometrics)In our ‘In Charts’ series, we work to tell some of the stories that are moving the industry.

Its bucolic setting inspires a garden-led menu in the restaurant, and garden-scented treatments in the spa. Guests are encouraged to embrace country living and explore the estate, while enjoying home comforts and superb service.For the exclusive use of hotel residents, the spa offers international treatments with an English country feel. Treatments include an authentic hammam and mud therapy in a private couples’ chamber, while facilities include the pool, halotherapy room and a wild pool.The Newt in Somerset is a working country estate located between Bruton and Castle Cary. It incorporates a garden visitor attraction with cultivated gardens, ancient woodland, orchards, cyder cellar, restaurants and farm shops, which are now open to the public.ADVERTISEMENTCelebrating all things Somerset, there is a focus on locality and sustainability. Everything stems from a deep respect for the land, its animals and its environment, as well as a passion for horticulture and agriculture.Hadspen House is a Grade II-listed building. The original farmer’s house was built between 1687-1690, while garden plans were conceived in 1691. A lawyer named Henry Hobhouse II purchased Hadspen House in 1785.  He gave the main house, with its façade of local limestone, its current Georgian appearance.  Over the next two centuries his successors remodelled the grounds, creating more naturalistic parkland. The property remained in the Hobhouse family until 2013.Throughout the hotel and gardens, the past is brought to life or reimagined by offsetting heritage elements with contemporary design, styling and architecture.Some structures, like the parabola and main house, are original and still intact after centuries.Other buildings, such as the threshing barn and spa, are based on traditional agricultural structures; while spaces such as the glass-walled Garden Café are of modern design, aiming to fit organically within the landscape.In the hotel, elegant main house rooms have been updated with a fresh, playful aesthetic.The stable yard’s original horse yard buildings have been transformed into sophisticated and versatile accommodation, while retaining their original characteristics. There are 23 bedrooms across the main house and its stable yard, each varying in design. Hadspen House has 13 bedrooms while the yard has ten bedrooms – four of which include kitchen facilities.
