BBB tips to help BC wildfire victims

first_imgAs people across British Columbia deal with the harsh reality of lost homes, Albertans are looking to help out.The Better Business Bureau (BBB) has some tips to make sure donations end up in the hands of people who need it most.The BBB’s Leah Brownridge said the number one thing people can do is do a quick check of the organization they’re donating to.“Any organization that is claiming to be a charitable organization must be registered with the Canada Revenue Agency,” she said, adding everyone needs to take extra care donating online.“Do a little research into the individual that has actually set up that page,” said Brownridge. “If you know and trust that person then you can be confident you’re making a safe donation, however if it’s someone you don’t know, you can’t be totally sure where that money is going.”Some pop-up organizations are completely fake and not a single cent goes to those who need it.Even though someone may have every good intention donating certain items, make sure they’re needed first.“They may not need, at this point, things like clothing or maybe food,” said Brownridge. “Maybe money is the primary donation but once again, making sure you make that differentiation and then make your donation accordingly.”It’s also a good idea to make sure the organization has an on-the ground presence.Brownridge added don’t send cash or give out personal or financial information. For security and tax reasons, people should always use cheques or credit cards.last_img read more

Embassy angered by Tory MP linking Mexican visitors to illegal drug trade

first_imgOTTAWA – The Mexican government is taking a Conservative MP to task for implying that many Mexican visitors to Canada are involved in the illegal drug trade.Sarnia, Ont., MP Marilyn Gladu made the suggestion Wednesday during debate on the Trudeau government’s bill to legalize recreational marijuana.Her reference to Mexicans came as she was arguing that legalization will actually be a boon for the illicit black market in cannabis — contrary to the government’s contention that it will displace organized crime.She said legal pot will be more expensive than the “going price” of $7 per gram on the black market. And she slammed the government for allowing individuals to grow up to four marijuana plants per dwelling, arguing that organized crime has increased in Colorado because it allows home-grown weed.“We can see how profitable organized crime has been there,” she told the House of Commons.Then Gladu added: “By the way, the government also eliminated the visa requirements for people coming in from Mexico, so lots of experienced people could just move in and take over the whole thing.”The Mexican embassy hit back in a written statement.“The embassy strongly disagrees and rejects any assertion that singles out or pretends to portray Mexicans as criminals,” it said.“Comments based on stereotypes are inaccurate and hurt the dignity of the Mexican people and should be avoided.”In an interview, Gladu initially doubled down on her comments.“I would point to some of the statistics that we had before the visa (requirement) was lifted,” she said.“There were about 9,000 (Mexicans) that were coming to Canada and it was costing us about $15,000 and taking about six months before they were deported and there was a large percentage that were of the criminal element.”She appeared to be referring to the fact that 9,462 Mexicans sought asylum in Canada in 2008 — more than half of whom were rejected for not having valid refugee claims.The following year, Stephen Harper’s Conservative government imposed a visa requirement on Mexicans wanting to enter Canada. It justified the move by pointing to an increase in bogus asylum claims from Mexicans whom the government argued were really economic migrants, not refugees fleeing persecution. Keeping criminals out of the country was not a big part of the rationale.The Liberal government lifted the visa requirement in 2016.“Now, they don’t know who’s coming in,” Gladu said in the interview. “Certainly, everyone has seen too many movies with drug cartels but it’s rife in Mexico.”According to intelligence reports obtained by Global News last year, dropping the visa requirement did indeed lead to an increase in Mexican criminals trying to enter Canada — although they remained a tiny fraction of overall Mexican travellers to the country.Just 0.25 per cent of the 156,000 Mexican nationals who entered Canada between 2012 and 2015, when visas were required, were implicated in crime, Global reported, including 29 linked to organized criminal groups, another eight with “possible links” and “likely more” who hadn’t been identified.Midway through 2017, after the visa requirement was lifted, Global reported that the Canada Border Services Agency had already identified 65 Mexican nationals it said were involved in “serious” crimes. Another 15 were cited for national security reasons.However, that same year, the overall number of Mexican visitors to Canada increased by 45 per cent, the embassy said in its statement, adding that the numbers grew by another 27 per cent in the first quarter of 2018. In addition, it said more than 25,000 Mexican agricultural workers come every year to work on Canadian farms.“There is no basis to sustain any link, whatsoever, between increased mobility and criminal activity. Both Mexican tourists and seasonal workers contribute to the Canadian economy.”Asked if she had any second thoughts about her reference to Mexicans during Wednesday’s debate, Gladu suggested her comments were made “in the passion of making your speech.”“I wouldn’t say the Mexicans are more prone to drug crimes than the organized crime we already have in Canada,” she said.“We have a $9-billion marijuana business operating today illegally in the country so we certainly have our own home-grown criminals, if you could call them that.”last_img read more

Quebecs Pelletier leads farthest exploration of any planetary body in history

first_imgPeter Rakobowchuk, The Canadian Press MONTREAL — Frederic Pelletier is boldly predicting he and his team will get the New Horizons spacecraft exactly where it should be on New Year’s Day — 1.6 billion kilometres beyond Pluto to rendezvous with a space rock known as Ultima Thule.The goal of the NASA mission is to pass by the region known as the “Kuiper Belt” and send data back to Earth that can help explain the origins of the solar system. The flyby of Ultima Thule is being described by the space agency as the “farthest exploration of any planetary body in history.”NASA says by exploring the region beyond Pluto, scientists can learn more about comets, small planets and other material dating back to the era when planets were formed — 4.5 billion years in the past.By the time the New Horizons spacecraft makes its closest approach to Ultima Thule — scheduled for 12:33 a.m. eastern standard time on Jan. 1, 2019 — the vehicle will be 6.6 billion kilometres from Earth.“It’s very difficult, we don’t have much information about (Ultima Thule),” Pelletier said in a recent interview with The Canadian Press. “I’m a bit nervous, but I feel confident … all the stars are aligned.”NASA contracted Pelletier to be the chief navigator of the spacecraft for the New Horizons mission, whose original plan was to fly past Pluto. The team reached its goal when the vehicle successfully flew by the dwarf planet on July 14, 2015, and sent back data “that resulted in profound new insights about Pluto and its moons,” according to the space agency’s website.The voyage beyond Pluto to the Kuiper Belt is part of the extended mission.Pelletier and his eight-member team are responsible for delivering the spacecraft, which is the size of a baby grand piano, to the target.It will fly by Ultima Thule at a distance of about 3,500 kilometres, going 14 kilometres a second — or 50,000 kilometres an hour. Pelletier compared it to a motorist inside a car who is trying to look at a lamppost.“It’s going by real fast,” he said.Pelletier said scientists estimate Ultima Thule to be about the same size as Washington D.C.“It’s estimated to have a diameter of 30 kilometres right now,” Pelletier said. “We suspect that it’s not going to be spherical, that it’s going to have some weird shape to it. There’s also the possibility that it will be a binary asteroid — two objects touching each other or in close formation.”What has made the task even more challenging for the Quebec City native is the fact that it takes six hours for the signal from Earth to reach the spacecraft and another six hours to return.“So when we plan manoeuvres to do uplinks and updates, we need to take that into account,” Pelletier noted.The New Horizons spacecraft blasted off Jan. 19, 2006, for its trip to Pluto, and since 2015, has been moving deeper into space. The mission is being hosted by Johns Hopkins University’s Applied Physical Laboratory in Laurel, Md., where Pelletier and his team are working.Ultima Thule was first detected in 2014 using the Hubble Space Telescope, meaning the rock was only discovered after the New Horizons launch.NASA says scientists estimate there are several hundred objects with a diameter longer than 30 kilometres waiting to be discovered in what’s known as “the third zone” of our solar system.“I’m an explorer,” Pelletier said. “I love going to places (that are) unexplored — we’re on the edge of the solar system. The Kuiper Belt was only discovered in the 1990s.”Until the Jan. 1 flyby, Pelletier will keep busy monitoring Ultima Thule, barely giving him time to celebrate his 44th birthday on Friday, Dec. 28.But his wife and two boys, aged 9 and 12, will be flying up to Maryland to join him in the coming days.Pelletier has worked on a number of other space missions, including the voyage the Cassini spacecraft took to Saturn, and he also participated in the Mars Curiosity landing.last_img read more

Stella Artois Teams Up With Matt Damon And Waterorg

first_imgStella Artois today announced it is once again partnering with Water.org and its Co-Founders Matt Damon and Gary White on their second ‘Buy a Lady a Drink’ campaign.Stella Artois joins forces with Water.org and Co-Founders Matt Damon and Gary WhiteThe campaign aims to drive awareness of the global water crisis that affects 663 million people around the world who lack access to clean water, and calls on consumers to help leave a legacy as the generation that ends this crisis, once and for all.Video: Leave a Mark with Matt Damon and Water.org | Buy a Lady a Drink | Stella ArtoisThe ‘Buy a Lady a Drink’ campaign was first launched in 2015 to utilize Stella Artois’ global footprint to help positively impact this important issue. Water has played an important role in Stella’s 600-year heritage, and is an essential ingredient in the Stella Artois that is brewed today. Last year the campaign focused on women’s long journeys for clean water. This year, the campaign showcases the positive impact that access to clean water can have, while inspiring consumers to leave a positive mark on the world.“I’ve seen how the lives of women and their families can change when they get access to clean water,” said Water.org Co-Founder Matt Damon. “Access to water is access to education, access to work, access to the kind of future we want for all humankind. Thanks to our partnership with Stella Artois, this year’s ‘Buy a Lady a Drink’ campaign helps us tell this story – and gives consumers the chance to help us change it.”“Water.org is committed to making clean water accessible so everyone in the world has the opportunity to prosper,” said Water.org Co-Founder and CEO, Gary White. “We’re proud to partner with Stella Artois again this year to help us change more futures around the globe.”This global, multi-channel partnership launches today with several opportunities to engage in the effort.New Limited-Edition Chalices Designed by Local Artists in Kenya, Peru and HaitiStella Artois will release a new set of limited-edition Chalices designed by three artists from Kenya, Peru and Haiti
Today, Stella Artois will release a new set of limited-edition Chalices designed by three artists from Kenya, Peru and Haiti: Daniel Cortez Torres from Peru, Wini Awuondo from Kenya and Michele Manuel from Haiti. Each design represents the specific water problem faced by women in their country.Consumers can purchase one of the exclusive Chalices for $13 at Amazon.com. For every Chalice sold in the U.S., Stella Artois will donate $6.25 to Water.org, up to 90,000 chalices, to help provide five years of clean water for one person in the developing world.“Water is woven into the very fabric of Stella Artois – it has allowed us to leave behind a proud brewing legacy, and we want others to have that same opportunity to leave a mark on the world,” said Ricardo Marques, vice president, Stella Artois. “Thanks to our continued partnership with Water.org, we have been able to change the lives of more than 290,000 people in the developing world through access to clean drinking water. Small actions, like the purchase of a Chalice, can have a big impact.”New Short Films 
The campaign will also feature three new short films. The first film showcases a zoetrope animation, a moving image device that features individual Stella Artois Chalices painted with different scenes of the positive impact that access to clean water can bring – such as growing crops, earning an income and going to school. The second film, featuring Matt Damon with the zoetrope, asks consumers to consider their own personal legacies and challenges them to become part of the generation that ends the global water crisis. Finally, the third film is a YouTube 360 video, which brings to life the experience of one woman and her family in Honduras via virtual reality on consumers’ mobile devices.Debut of New Documentary Series 
To further underscore the power of water and inspire social action, Stella Artois has commissioned 2015 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize Winner Crystal Moselle to create a three-part documentary series showcasing the impact of the global water crisis on women and their communities in Haiti, Kenya, and Peru.Moselle and her Academy- and Emmy Award- winning producer Fazeelat Aslam recently traveled to Haiti, where they met Marie, a midwife living in a community with no access to clean water. In her daily struggle to provide for her large family and service her community, Marie’s resilience became immediately apparent. Her story inspired the filmmaking team’s first chapter of an eye-opening look at the water crisis around the world.“Clean water is something that’s easily taken for granted. Many of us don’t realize how much it impacts a community’s livelihood and sense of hope for the future,” said Moselle. “On our visit to Haiti, we met so many amazing women dealing with the crisis on several levels. These stories of strength, hope and perseverance really resonated with us, and we hope they will inspire viewers enough to take action.”The films will be produced in partnership with Stella Artois, and with advisory support from Water.org. The series will debut to coincide with World Water Day.Stella Artois Leaves a Mark at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival 
Stella Artois will showcase its commitment to making a difference at this year’s Festival in Park City.• Water.org Co-Founders Matt Damon and Gary White will host a panel session along with Todd Allen, Global Vice President, Stella Artois.

Los Angeles DA charges utility with crimes for gas leak

by Brian Melley, The Associated Press Posted Feb 2, 2016 9:00 pm MDT Last Updated Feb 2, 2016 at 9:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Los Angeles DA charges utility with crimes for gas leak LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Los Angeles prosecutors filed misdemeanour criminal charges Tuesday against a utility for failing to immediately report a natural gas leak that has been gushing nonstop for nearly 15 weeks.District Attorney Jackie Lacey said the charges aren’t a solution to the problem, but Southern California Gas Co. needs to be held responsible for the leak that has uprooted more than 4,400 families.The charges came the same day the state attorney general joined a long line of others in suing the gas company for the blowout that has spewed more than 2 million tons of climate-changing methane since October.Lawmakers in Congress have urged the U.S. secretary of energy to investigate the leak, and federal regulators are crafting new safety standards for underground natural gas storage facilities.The criminal complaint charges the company with three counts of failing to report the release of a hazardous material and one count of discharge of air contaminants.The company said in a statement that it will vigorously defend itself in court. Arraignment is scheduled for Feb. 17.If convicted, the company could be fined up to $1,000 per day for air pollution violations and up to $25,000 for each of the three days it didn’t notify the state Office of Emergency Services of the leak.The company said it discovered the leak Oct. 23 and notified state gas and oil regulators.But it failed to let state emergency officials know until Oct. 26, Attorney General Kamala Harris said in the latest of more than two dozen lawsuits filed against SoCalGas.The leak has created a public health and statewide environmental emergency, Harris said. The lawsuit, which doesn’t specify damages, says the company created a nuisance and violated health and safety codes and the state’s unfair competition law.A spokeswoman said the company doesn’t comment on pending litigation and was focused on stopping the leak, which it expects to plug by the end of the month.SoCalGas said it paid $50 million through December to try to cap the leak and relocate people, but the number of families it has relocated since then has soared and work at the leaking well continues.It is also facing potential class-action lawsuits from residents and businesses as well as suits from regional air regulators and city and county authorities.Harris, a Democrat running for U.S. Senate, is the first state official to sue, though her lawsuit incorporates elements of lawsuits filed by the city and county of Los Angeles.Several state agencies are investigating the blowout and have issued orders to the gas company to stop it and turn over records of the 60-year-old well and others from the field that is the largest natural gas storage facility in the West.The federal Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration got involved for the first time Tuesday, saying it is working to propose new regulations for gas storage and directing operators to “inspect and take immediate actions to ensure the safety of underground natural gas storage facilities across the country.”State regulators are investigating the cause of the leak, but they said they won’t know until the well is plugged, which is expected by the end of the month.Local residents have reported symptoms including headaches, nosebleeds and rashes, among other woes.Public health officials have blamed the maladies on odorant added to make the gas detectable. They have said the leak — mostly methane but including trace elements of the carcinogen benzene — is not expected to cause long-term health problems.___Associated Press writer Ellen Knickmeyer contributed to this story from San Francisco.

Two horses die after collision at Del Mar Racetrack

first_img Posted: July 18, 2019 Updated: 1:02 PM KUSI Newsroom, KUSI Newsroom Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwittercenter_img DEL MAR (KUSI) – Two horses died at the Del Mar Fairgrounds race track Thursday morning after colliding during a training session, according to officials with the Del Mar Throughbred Club.The accident happened around 6:30 a.m. during a training session, Del Mar Throughbred Club spokesman Dan Smith said.The two horses, 3-year-old Carson Valley and 2-year-old Charge a Bunch, collided after Charge a Bunch unseated jockey Geovanni Franco, then turned sharply and ran in the wrong direction before colliding with Carson Valley, who was training alongside two other horses, according to a statement from the race track.Franco and the other two horses were uninjured in the collision, Smith said.The jockey riding Carson Valley, Assael Espinoza, complained of pain in his lower back and underwent a CAT scan at a local hospital, the Daily Racing Form said.Carson Valley was trained by Bob Baffert and Charge a Bunch was trained by Carla Gaines.“This was a very unfortunate accident and it is a shock to everyone in the barn,” Baffert said in a statement. “We work every day to take the best care of our horses, but sometimes freak accidents occur that are beyond anyone’s ability to control.”PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo issued a statement on the deaths of two horses who collided at the Del Mar racetrack “These horses’ lives were taken from them by the racing industry. PETA requests that Del Mar and all other California racetracks release records of horses who have gotten loose on the tracks and urges the California Horse Racing Board to launch a full investigation in order to eliminate the dangers of training. Saying that deaths are inevitable in racing is like saying a swim team can’t compete without drowning. If racing can’t be done without horses dying, it shouldn’t be done at all.”The race track began its 80th racing season Wednesday.

Call Center Software

first_img 2 min read If you’ve got a high-volume call center, you’re probably not combing through each recorded call every night. It’s understandable, yet it’s a shame–because that call-center data could be crucial.Many companies are picking up on that fact. Technology like emotion detection and word spotting helps businesses cull information not just from what customers say, but also how they say it.NICE Systems Ltd., for one, offers NICE Perform, which includes emotion-detection and word-spotting features trained to pick up on variations in tone of voice as well as key words, such as cancel, happy and even a competitor’s name. Says NICE’s Virginia Flood, “NICE Perform enables us to identify patterns of behavior–what a customer intends to do, what their next step might be.”Knowlagent takes things a step further with what co-founder and co-chair Matt McConnell calls “sensing”–identifying what an agent says and does in the course of a call. Knowlagent’s Coach software will track, in real time, how long it took an agent to upsell a product, or even how many times an agent has put a customer on hold.The key to making these solutions work in your business is giving the data the attention it deserves. “Understanding the underlying causes of performance trends is critical to determining how to improve quality, lower costs, generate revenue and increase customer satisfaction,” says Mariann McDonagh, vice president of global marketing for Verint Systems in Melville, New York. Verint’s Ultra suite delivers information about customer interactions to key people.No matter what solution you choose, keep agents informed. Kimberly King, president of InterWeave Corp. in Tampa, Florida, a performance management consulting firm serving the call-center industry, says, “This system should not be perceived as a ‘caught you doing something wrong’ system. Educate everyone before installation so you can set them up for success.”Above all, keep on top of this technology. Says King, “Make sure it evolves as your business does to ensure you the greatest return on investment.”Kareren E.
