Photo: Larissa Burnouf/APTN)Larissa Burnouf APTN National NewsYORKTON, SASK — A First Nations woman has won an out-of-court settlement for an undisclosed amount of money against the Yorkton RCMP for mistreatment following her arrest more than three years ago.Ethel Pelly, 42, was arrested and charged with a drug offence in February 2012 and taken to the Yorkton holding cells.In an interview with APTN National News, Pelly said that’s where her “horrifying” treatment at the hands of the RCMP began that started with being stripped of her underwear.“Is this the way you guys operate?” Pelly remembers asking the officers. “You let the women come take your underwear while the men come and look at you?”Pelly said she explained to the police that she was having her period and bleeding profusely at the time.  She told APTN that a female officer stripped her of her underwear anyway, leaving her locked in her cell in pants and a see-through tank top, bleeding through her clothes.“The man wasn’t even looking at my eyes when he was talking to me,” said said. “He was just looking at my chest” said Pelly fighting back tears.Pelly was arrested in February 2012 and held by Yorkton RCMPAccording to RCMP records, Pelly was locked in her cell for nearly 15 hours and “miscommunication” resulted in her not having access to water for her entire stay.“My pants were soaked in blood, the sink was full of blood, the toilet was full of blood.  The stench in there was terrible.  I couldn’t flush the toilet and I told them and they wouldn’t help me.  Nobody would help me.”Pelly’s lawyer Tom Campbell said he received the police video taken the next morning.“The investigating officer attempted to take a statement from her later the next day and she’s soaked in blood. She’s clearly distraught,” said Campbell. “And the officer clearly ignores her distress.”Yorkton RCMP letter of apologyDownload (PDF, Unknown)When Campbell contacted the RCMP, Pelly was sent a letter of apology explaining that detainees are stripped of underwear to prevent them from self-harm and from damaging cells.  The letter went on to explain that the water was turned off so she couldn’t destroy any evidence that may have been on or in her body.The RCMP acknowledged miscommunication on their behalf, which left Pelly without water for a total of 14 hours, agreeing that was unacceptable.“That apology letter is not good enough, not in the least.  It is not good enough at all,” said Pelly. “I would like actually like to see his resignation because he knew… he gave the orders to lock me in there. And he left me in there for that long”Pelly (right) with her lawyer Tom Campbell. Larissa Burnouf/APTNPelly did not receive the officers resignation but she did receive an out-of-court, undisclosed settlement from the RCMP for her treatment within the Yorkton RCMP holding cells.“I’m Glad it is over with but not too pleased they still have their jobs” said Pelly.  “They were disciplined and I requested they go back to school and educate themselves in Native Studies and learn the importance of the women and their Moon Time.  I also requested they go to First Nation schools and talk to them about their procedures and what their policies are.”Pelly said it’s a small victory as her trust and faith in policing has completely changed.“My feeling towards the so called ‘serve and protect’ is lost.  I have no trust in the RCMP and look at them in a negative way now.  I will never look at them the same.”  Pelly is glad to put the whole ordeal behind her and pleased that the police acknowledged her terrible treatment and hopes her fight will help others who faced similar experiences to come forward and bring change to the RCMP.lburnouf@aptn.calast_img read more

Celebration of Japan’s new era big opportunity for business

TOKYO — Japan is getting ready for its biggest celebration in years with the advent of the Reiwa era of soon-to-be emperor Naruhito. That means big opportunities for businesses hoping consumers will splash out on long holidays and memorabilia.Many Japanese will get their longest ever “Golden Week” holidays, 10 days to mark May 1’s beginning of the new era following Emperor Akihito’s abdication on April 30, and some are taking advantage of deep discounts. The expected downsides: monster traffic jams and struggles to keep store shelves stocked with so many people getting time off.The transition from the Heisei era of Akihito to the upcoming Reiwa era is a rare opportunity to celebrate: the Heisei era came amid mourning for Akihito’s father, the late emperor Hirohito, a time of sombre restraint.Haruka Nuga, The Associated Press read more

France wants to tax iPads and iPhones to fund the arts

first_imgA REPORT ENDORSED by the French government has recommended imposing a tax on smartphones and tablets in a bid to fund artistic and creative ventures.A nine-member panel produced a government commissioned report yesterday which also rejected the idea of Google being charged for linking to media content, according to News 24.The report called for a 4 per cent tax on the sale of all smartphones, tablet and digital devices that allow access to the internet and “cultural content”.The Financial Times says the report is broadly backed by Francois Hollande’s government.“Companies that make these tablets must, in a minor way, be made to contribute part of the revenue from their sales to help creators,” culture minister Aurelie Filipetti is quoted as saying in the  FT.The panel, headed by journalist and businessman Pierre Lescure, said that demands from newspapers and other media organisations for compensation for linking to their content – which they argue Google is making revenue off – are legally doubtful.Among 75 proposals, the tax on smartphones and tablets is the most striking but other recommendations included scaling back punishments for piracy which currently include internet connections being suspended and heavy fines.The report said that piracy could be reduced if satellite and cable providers offered newly-released films on demand shortly after their release, RFI reports.Read: TV3 unveils major expansion of its news website – including rolling newsRead: Samsung has tested wireless internet that could download a movie in one secondlast_img read more

Head of probe into Trumps ties to Russia steps aside due to

first_img http://jrnl.ie/3327327 Image: Sachs Ron/CNP/ABACA By AFP 31 Comments 12,076 Views THE REPUBLICAN LEADER of the House investigation into Russian interference in the US election stepped aside today after being criticized for compromising the probe in visits to the White House.Devin Nunes, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, had sought to turn the investigation away from Russia and toward President Donald Trump’s allegations that the previous Obama administration had abused its powers by spying on Trump and his advisers.Rancor over this, and over Nunes’s sharing top secret intelligence reports with Trump but not members of his own committee, had driven the committee’s probe to a halt.The committee was originally tasked with examining how Russia interfered in last year’s presidential campaign and whether any Trump aides or associates collaborated with Moscow.Democrats accused Nunes of seeking to protect Trump by focusing on allegations of abuse by president Barack Obama’s staff.Trump himself has repeatedly branded the idea that Russia may have helped him to victory in the November election as “fake news,” while demanding attention to whether Obama staff combed top secret intercepts to dig up information on Trump’s team.Nunes said he was temporarily stepping aside from the probe to answer allegations made to Congress’s ethics body by Democratic groups that he had revealed classified information to the public.“The charges are entirely false and politically motivated, and are being leveled just as the American people are beginning to learn the truth about the improper unmasking of the identities of US citizens and other abuses of power,” he said in a statement.Getting ‘back on track’ Source: J. Scott ApplewhiteAdam Schiff, the Democratic vice chairman of the committee, said Nunes’ move would allow the Russia probe to get “fully back on track.”“The important work of investigating the Russian involvement in our election never subsided, but we have a fresh opportunity to move forward in the unified and nonpartisan way that an investigation of this seriousness demands,” he said.Nunes’ move ends weeks of very public tensions between himself and Schiff that had draw criticism from all quarters of Congress.The House panel is one of several bodies examining the Russia scandal. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has been investigating the issue since June, when it became clear to US intelligence that the Russian government was behind hacks of Democratic Party communications and a misinformation campaign that targeted Trump rival Hillary Clinton.In January, after the election, US intelligence chiefs said they had concluded that Russian President Vladimir Putin had masterminded the effort to damage Clinton.In Congress, the House and Senate intelligence committees have been leading separate probes, and the open fight between Nunes and Schiff had raised concerns that the House investigation would be subsumed by politics.Abuse of intelligence intercepts?Nunes further raised doubts after he went to the White House on March 21 to view top secret files he said indicated abuse of intelligence by the Obama administration.The files were intelligence intercepts of the communications of foreign officials, which were either with US officials, or mentioned their names. Under US privacy laws, the names of Americans in such intercept files have to be masked.But Nunes said publicly he had discovered files where the names had been unmasked by unnamed Obama officials, and he took his discovery to Trump, while not sharing it with his committee.The move appeared to boost Trump’s claims that Obama officials had misused intelligence powers to spy on Trump’s administration before and after the election.“Trump Russia story is a hoax,” the president tweeted on 27 March. Head of probe into Trump’s ties to Russia steps aside due to ethics complaints Republican Devin Nunes stepped aside temporarily today. The real story turns out to be SURVEILLANCE and LEAKING! Find the leakers.While Democrats blasted Trump and his supporters for trying to change the direction of the investigation, Obama’s National Security Advisor Susan Rice added fuel to the fire on Tuesday when she acknowledged reports that she had done some of the unmasking.Rice said what she had done was legal and was done as part of an intensified look into how Russia had interfered in the election.“The allegation is that somehow Obama administration officials utilized intelligence for political purposes. That’s absolutely false,” she told MSNBC television.“From basically August through the end of the administration (20 January) we were hearing more and more, getting more and more information about Russian interference in our electoral process. It was of grave concern,” she said.© – AFP, 2017Read: Donald Trump takes his advisor Steve Bannon off National Security CouncilRead: Trump’s former adviser will testify in Russia probe ‘if he gets immunity’center_img Image: Sachs Ron/CNP/ABACA Share53 Tweet Email Apr 6th 2017, 3:00 PM Thursday 6 Apr 2017, 3:00 PM Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Short URLlast_img read more

Celebrating Sotiria Bellou

The performance will be led by some of Melbourne’s most prolific Greek musicians, including the ambassador of the 2014 Melbourne Festival, Achilles Yiangoulli on bouzouki and guitar, Stavrina Dimitriou on vocals, Dean Georgalas on bouzouki and Con Kalamaras on guitar and baglama.

Sushma Swaraj A peoples politician

first_imgNew Delhi, Aug 7: Just a few hours before she collapsed and died, former External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had tweeted her thanks to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for revoking Article 370 on Jammu and Kashmir. “Thank you Prime Minister. Thank you very much. I was waiting to see this day in my lifetime.” That was her last communication on the social media platform on which she had over 13 million followers. She was active on tweeting about major happenings, though she decided against contesting the 2019 Lok Sabha elections or on joining the Narendra Modi 2.0 government due to health reasons. Also Read – NRC in Assam to be released: list to finalize if a person is Indian or Foreigner Advertise With Us Sushma, who died aged 67, tweeted her condolences on Congress leader Sheila Dikshit’s death on July 20, writing that though they were opponents in politics, but were friends in personal life. Sushma, who brought her innate grace and charm into her work, was not cowed by twitter trolls either. In fact when one troll told her, that like Sheila Dikshit, she too would be remembered after her death, Sushma took it sportingly, tweeting back: “I thank you in anticipation for this kind thought.” Also Read – Subramanian Swamy cross-examined in National Herald case Advertise With Us Though she was overshadowed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who undertook the major trips and diplomatic dealings during her tenure as External Affairs Minister, Sushma Swaraj did not retire into the shadows. She made her mark in her own way – connecting with the diaspora far and wide, and reaching out to help them. She would respond to every appeal for assistance, and make sure the Indian missions responded to the requests. In this way she gave the human touch to the Ministry of External Affairs, and won millions of admirers across the world, including many in Pakistan. Advertise With Us Many Pakistani patients would appeal to her for medical visas via twitter, and Sushma would try to accommodate their requests. She would also connect with some of the Pakistanis who she helped get emergency medical visas. In 2017, she won admiration when she granted a year-long medical visa to a Pakistani girl Shireen Shiraz for an open heart surgery. As Leader of Opposition in the 15th Lok Sabha, Sushma was a formidable and compelling speaker. She would attack the ruling Congress-led UPA without pulling any punches, and once Parliament was witness to a fierce poetic exchange between her and then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. In 2013, when Manmohan Singh used an Urdu couplet to hit out at the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party, Sushma Swaraj responded in kind. Manmohan Singh, accusing the BJP of making unwarranted attacks on his government, had recited a couplet of Urdu poet Mirza Ghalib. “Humko hai unse wafa ki umeed, jo nahi jaante wafa kya hai (we hope for loyalty from those who do not know the meaning of the word),” the then Prime Minister said, quoting famous Urdu poet Mirza Ghalib. Retorting, Sushma narrated a verse of Hindi poet Bashir Badr: “Kuch to majbooriya rahi hongi yun koi bewafa nahi hota (there must have been some compulsions, one is not disloyal for no reason at all).” She then quoted another verse: “Tumhe wafa yaad nahee, Humein jafa yaad nahee, zindagi or maut ke toh do hee tarane hain, ek tumhein yaad nahee, ek humein yaad naheen (you don’t remember loyalty, we don’t remember disloyalty, life and death have two rhythms, you don’t remember one, we don’t remember the other).” Sushma, who was always attired in wide-bordered saris and donned a trademark big red bindi and sindoor, had carved a niche in the BJP through effective presentation of her views both inside and outside Parliament. Following the 2004 elections when the Congress was set to form the government and the name of Italian-born Sonia Gandhi was being touted as likely prime minister, Sushma threatened to shave her head, wear a white saree and eat groundnuts (symbolical of mourning) if Sonia became Prime Minister. Married to Swaraj Kaushal, a former Mizoram Governor, Sushma had contested against Sonia in Bellary (Karnataka) during the 1999 Lok Sabha elections. While Gandhi polled 51.7 per cent of the vote, Sushma was not too far behind with 44.7 per cent. Though she lost the polls, Sushma moved up the party ladder. Born on February 14, 1952 at Ambala Cantonment, Sushma earned a B.A. degree in political science. She studied LL.B. in Panjab University, Chandigarh. She married Swaraj Kaushal on July 13, 1975, during the time of the Emergency. An advocate by profession, she began her political career as a student leader in the 1970s, organizing protests against Indira Gandhi’s government. She was associated with many social and cultural bodies in various capacities. She was President of the Hindi Sahitya Sammelan, Haryana for four years. She twice became MLA from Haryana during 1977-1982 and 1987-1990, and once from Delhi in 1998. As a Janata Party MLA in Devi Lal’s government, she was the Cabinet Minister of Labour and Employment (1977-1979) – becoming the youngest ever Cabinet Minister in the country at 25 years of age. She joined the BJP in 1980. Under a combined Lok Dal-BJP government led by Devi Lal, she was the Cabinet Minister of Education, Food and Civil Supplies (1987-1990). She was judged Best Speaker of Haryana State Assembly for three consecutive years. In 1980, 1984, and 1989, she unsuccessfully contested the Lok Sabha elections from Karnal in Haryana. All three times, she was defeated by the Congress Party’s Chiranji Lal Sharma. She was elected as a member of the Rajya Sabha in 1990. In 1996, she was elected to the 11th Lok Sabha from South Delhi. She was Union Cabinet Minister of Information and Broadcasting in 1996, during the 13-day Atal Bihari Vajpayee government. She was re-elected to the 12th Lok Sabha for a second term in 1998. Under the second Vajpayee government, she retained the Information and Broadcasting Ministry and had additional charge of the Ministry of Telecommunications from March 19 to October 12, 1998. Sushma left the Union Cabinet from October-December 1998 to serve as the first woman Chief Minister of Delhi. The BJP lost the assembly elections, and she returned to national politics. Sushma returned to Parliament in April 2000 as a Rajya Sabha member from Uttarakhand. She was re-inducted into the cabinet as the Minister of Information and Broadcasting, which she held from September 2000 until January 2003. She was also made the Minister of Health and Family Welfare, and held the post of Minister of Parliamentary Affairs. She was re-elected to the Rajya Sabha in April 2006 from Madhya Pradesh. She served as the deputy leader of BJP in Rajya Sabha. In late 2005, speculation was high that Sushma was one of the top contenders to be BJP president after L.K. Advani resigned. However, Rajnath Singh was elected to that post. In 2009, Sushma won the election to the 15th Lok Sabha from Vidisha in Madhya Pradesh, by a record margin of 3.89 lakh votes. She was made Deputy Leader of the Opposition in June 2009 in the Lok Sabha, and in December that year Sushma became the first woman Leader of the Opposition when she replaced Advani.last_img read more

Incompatible human brains couldn’t understand, though, and chaos ensued.As always, the Doctor has a plan: live music.“Music can move people. Music means something. It gives you a voice. And I’m going to show you just how powerful that voice can be,” he tells Hattie, just before their jam session sets the alien spaceship free.“Beneath the Waves: Part Three” is on sale now with four cover variants for $3.99.via Titan ComicsThe Tenth Doctor, meanwhile, embarks on a new journey with Gabby Gonzalez and Cindy Wu in part one of “Vortex Butterflies.”Interspersed with Gabby’s charming journal entries, the story follows the Doctor, Gabby, Cindy, and Noobis as they say goodbye to Ancient China and say hello to various adventures through space and time.Things get a big wibbly wobbly, however, once the TARDIS begins acting up (seemingly more than “a case of the hiccups”), and the Doctor leaves his mates in London while he leaves on a mysterious trip to meet an unexpected ally.Pick up “Vortex Butterflies,” part one of four, from writer Nick Abadzis and artist Giorgia Sposito for $3.99 from Titan Comics.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Mnuchin GSEs Wont Stay Asis for Long

first_imgMnuchin: GSEs Won’t Stay ‘As-is’ for Long Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac should prepare for change—and sooner rather than later. According to Steven Mnuchin, the Trump administration won’t keep the status quo for long.Mnuchin discussed the GSEs and housing reform in general as part of an interview with reporter Maria Bartiromo on Fox Business’ “Mornings with Maria” on Monday. Though he didn’t go into too much detail, he did say that privatizing the two Enterprises wasn’t necessarily the plan.“I haven’t said they’d be privatized,” Mnuchin said. “What I have said is I’m committed to housing reform. We’re committed to not leaving them as-is for the next four years.”The main goal of reforming the system? Mnuchin said its to keep housing affordable without putting American taxpayers in harm’s way.“We want to make sure that there is ample credit for housing,” Mnuchin told Bartiromo. “It’s a very, very important part of the economy, but we also want to make sure we don’t put the taxpayers at risk. And as you know, those two companies only exist because we have a giant line from the Treasury that supports them.”Mnuchin also talked briefly about a recent bill introduced by Kevin McCarthy in the House that aims to eliminate Fannie and Freddie’s exemption from the Freedom of Information Act. This Act, according to Bartiromo, allowed the Obama administration to reallocate GSE funds toward other parts of the government—including the Affordable Care Act—without public knowledge.“They used the profits of Fannie and Freddie for other parts of the government, while they kept taxpayers at risk,” Mnuchin said.Bartiromo and Mnuchin also covered the recently proposed tax plan, which aims to lower taxes on middle-income earners and businesses. To see the full interview, visit FoxBusiness.com.The Trump administration has been making waves in the housing and financial services industries as of late. Two weeks ago, President Trump issued two executive orders, calling for a review of “too big to fail” as well as oversight of these organizations.Mnuchin also came out in support of the Financial CHOICE Act last week, which is proposed as an alternative to the controversial Dodd-Frank Act.
