HAPPY NATIONAL CANADIAN FILM DAY

first_imgAdvertisement ABOUT NCFD: National Canadian Film Day has always been about encouraging all Canadians to celebrate the incredible achievements of our nation’s filmmakers.In 2017, NCFD 150 was an event of unprecedented size and scope, which reached an astonishing number of people across the country and around the world. In April 2018, nearly 900 events were held on the fifth annual NCFD, and thousands of Canadians here and abroad helped it take root as an annual tradition.Film – more than any other medium – has the power to capture the soul of a nation, and when we only watch movies from somewhere else, we lose a part of ourselves. There’s nothing wrong with loving Hollywood films, but they’re no substitute for the connection you can feel when you watch something from your own backyard.

Global trade tensions fuel St Lawrence seaway shipments as grain demand soars

first_imgMONTREAL — The St. Lawrence Seaway saw its highest cargo numbers since 2007 last year, propelled by a spike in grain shipments and global tariff wars that worked in Canada’s favour.The St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corp. says traffic hit 40.9 million tonnes in 2018, a seven per cent year-over-year increase.Grain made up close to one-third of all tonnage on the 60-year-old waterway, rising 20 per cent from 2017.Bruce Burrows, president of the Chamber of Marine Commerce, says trade tensions between the U.S. and other countries worked to the advantage of Canadian exporters.A Chinese tariff on U.S. soybeans and European counter-tariffs on U.S. corn spurred more shipments from Canada, which enjoyed a strong corn crop last year.Burrows also says early snowfalls fuelled more road salt shipments, while infrastructure demand across the eastern part of the continent yielded higher volumes of other dry goods such as gravel and cement.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Delhi trivia night a hit

How many years has the Delhi and District Chamber of Commerce held its annual Trivia Night?The answer is 15.The most recent was held March 27 at the Delhi German Home.“We get the community together, it’s a fun night, and at the same time it raises funds that are going to be used towards helping the community and improving businesses here in Delhi,” said chamber president James Norman.The event saw 28 teams of four people coming together to answer 100 general knowledge questions.Dave Kington’s Tilson Tunes took first place and the top prize of $350.  The defending champions, Dustin Wakeford’s Delhi Llamas, came in second place, receiving a $250 award.  Team captain Chris Thomas and his group, the Scotch Society, came in third place, being awarded a $150 prize.Mike and Gail Jiggens have organized this event for the last 15 years. The Delhi Chamber acknowledged that dedication with a gift certificate to show their appreciation.“Hopefully they will continue for another 15 years,” Norman said about the time the Jiggens have put into these events.Creating the 100 questions can take some time.“It’s a year round thing. Certain things come up during the year that I’ll think about and research to make sure I’ve got the right answer,” Mike said about getting ready for the trivia night. “Most of the questions come in the last few months before the event. It’s fun putting the questions together.”Mike has prepared the questions for all 15 events.“I was honored to assist Mike and Gail with the event and I would like to thank the Delhi District Chamber Board members for all their work collecting door prizes,” said Sharon Lang, a chamber member. “Delhi is very fortunate to have local businesses showing their support for the event and the community.”The rules of the trivia night were explained to the crowd before the questions began. Outside communication devices were not allowed.The questions included topics such as how many holes are in a Ritz cracker, how many months Noah’s Arc was afloat, and what piece of art holds the world record for the most insurance.Throughout the night over 50 door prizes were handed out to people in attendance.astaylor@postmedia.com read more

Brock womens basketball team increases presence at No Fixed Address

First it was hot and sticky, and then it poured.And after living in their cars for 24 hours last summer as part of the YWCA’s No Fixed Address fundraiser, the Brock women’s basketball team learned just how difficult some people have it.“It was an eye-opener that this is what life is like for a lot of people in this community,” said coach Ashley MacSporran, who had just started her tenure at Brock last year when the No Fixed Address event was held.“Last year was last-minute. We were doing our camp the same week so we finished camp and ran right over there,” she said.To increase their involvement in the YWCA fundraiser, which sees people living in their vehicles in the Pen Centre parking lot for 24 hours, the women’s team is holding a basketball clinic from 12:30 to 2 p.m. Friday, Aug. 11.It was an eye-opener that this is what life is like for a lot of people in this community This year marks the seventh annual No Fixed Address event, which has raised more than $264,000 for the YWCA. It runs from 10 a.m. Friday until 10 a.m. Saturday.“We’re excited to do something bigger and better this year,” said MacSporran. “For a lot of our young women who were a part of it last year, it was a great learning experience. Hopefully we can partner with the YWCA throughout the year on more events.”MacSporran was the July ambassador for the City of St. Catharines’ #CompassionateSTC campaign, which saw the women’s basketball team invite a group of special needs youth to their basketball camp at Brock.The team will continue its community outreach throughout the year by getting involved with a different organization each month. The players themselves will each get to pick an effort to get behind.In September, the Badgers will spend a Sunday volunteering at the Lincoln County Humane Society.“We’ll get a vast experience every month by doing something different and it will help the girls with leadership skills because it’s not always coach-led. The girls are picking something they’re passionate about,” MacSporran said. read more

Google Releases a Managed Service for Microsoft Active Directory AD in Beta

first_imgConstellation Research Inc. analyst Holger Mueller said in a Silicon Angle article: It was important for Google to support Microsoft Active Directory on its public cloud as a majority of enterprises continue to use the service for managing users and user access. This makes user administration and management easy, as it means there’s no need to map to other user management or access management systems. It’s a great example of how Google is implementing an “embrace to extend” strategy, going the extra mile to make it easier to attract workloads to Google Cloud. In a recent blog post, Google announced the beta release of the Managed Service for Microsoft Active Directory (AD). With this cloud-based service, Google acts as a managed provider for any customer requiring Microsoft AD, and this includes the patching and maintenance of Microsoft’s identity and access management service.The managed service for Microsoft AD was first announced as an alpha release at Google Cloud Next ’19 in April. The service aimed to help customers manage AD-dependent workloads that run in the cloud, automate AD server maintenance and security configuration, and connect their on-premises AD domain to the cloud. Now the managed service is in public beta.With Managed Service for Microsoft AD, customers can create a domain using the GCP console. This can take up to 60 minutes to become available. Next, they can do perform operations like connecting to a managed Microsoft AD domain, or create and manage trusts between a managed AD and their on-premises domain. With the service in public beta, customers can sign up for it via the product page and access the available documentation. Furthermore, Google is planning to add a service-level agreement governing service uptime when the product reaches general availability.center_img Source: https://cloud.google.com/blog/products/identity-security/now-in-beta-managed-service-for-microsoft-active-directory-adAccording to the announcement blog post by Siddharth Bhai, product manager, Google Cloud, the managed service for Microsoft AD will deliver the following benefits for the customers: The service runs real Microsoft AD Domain Controllers, which means that customers do not have to worry about application compatibility. Furthermore, they can use standard AD features such as Group Policy, and familiar administration tools such as Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT), to manage the domain.  Furthermore, the service is highly available, automatically patched, configured with secure defaults, and protected by appropriate network firewall rules. Customers can deploy the service in a specific region to allow their apps and VMs in the same or other regions access the domain over a low-latency Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). As customer infrastructure needs grow, they can expand the service to additional regions, while continuing to use the same managed AD domain.last_img read more

Grim Reality In The Aftermath Of Hurricane Harvey More Dead

first_img Share HCSOImage of white van that the Harris County Sheriff’s Office found with two bodies belonging to a reported missing family in the wake of Harvey, in Green Bayous area. Aug. 30th, 2017.HOUSTON (AP) — Now that the sun is finally shining and the murky, brown floodwaters are slowly receding in much of the Houston area, grim reality is setting in. Harvey is about to release its dead.In Texas, the official death toll stood at 23 on Wednesday, although authorities were investigating an additional 17 deaths to determine whether they were storm related. Officials fear that the number of fatalities will climb sharply in coming days as neighbors, emergency workers and family members search for the missing — and discover the bodies of people trapped in waterlogged homes or encased in underwater graves inside cars. And the death toll might rise even further in the recovery phase, from car crashes, carbon monoxide poisoning or other accidents during cleanup. “Historically all estimates of deaths are wrong in the beginning,” said Craig Fugate, who was the Federal Emergency Management Agency director from 2009 until earlier this year. Already, the nation is shocked by the horrors revealed as the storm moves out of the area and east toward Louisiana and points north. The first confirmed fatality came early: A man in the Gulf coastal city of Rockport was killed in a fire late Friday as the storm raged ashore.On Wednesday, officials located a submerged van that seven members of a Houston family had been traveling in when it was swept off a bridge and into a storm-ravaged bayou. Samuel Saldivar told police he was trying to bring his elderly parents and his brother’s four grandchildren to safety from their flooded home on Sunday when the van he was driving was tossed by a strong current into the bayou as it crossed the bridge. He escaped through a window but the six others were trapped when the van’s partially submerged sliding door wouldn’t open.Also Wednesday, authorities said 65-year-old Donald Rogers and his 58-year-old wife, Rochelle, drowned when they were swept away by a current after driving their pickup truck into floodwaters in a rural area southwest of Houston. Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Maj. Chad Norvell said the couple was on the phone with 911 asking for help when the line went silent. When officers found the truck, it was completely submerged.On Tuesday afternoon, a 3-year-old girl was found alive in a rain-swollen canal, clinging to the body of her drowned mother in Beaumont, Texas. A second woman was confirmed dead in Beaumont on Wednesday.Earlier Tuesday, the body of 61-year-old Houston Police Sgt. Steve Perez was found in his car. He’d been swept down a flooded road as he drove to his precinct, determined to serve his community. Eleven other confirmed deaths, some of which were listed on a Harris County database, showed people were found floating in waters, some in homes or businesses, others near cars. Among those victims was Ruben Jordan, a high school basketball coach, who was last seen late Saturday helping people through flood waters. His family was informed on Monday that he had died in the floods.“The sad thing is, of the deaths we’ve seen, we’re going to see more, unfortunately,” said Jeff Schlegelmilch, the deputy director of the National Center for Disaster Preparedness at Columbia University. “That number doesn’t stop moving up until we’re well into the recovery phase.”No official number of the missing has been released, and a spokesman for the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, where Houston is located, said there isn’t a specific strategy in place to look for additional bodies. “We are going to go out and try to find any potential victims that may be there,” said the spokesman, Jake Smith. “We are also encouraging the public if they come across anything, we strongly urge them to call 911 if they find a body or a potential victim.”Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said the department had received 47 missing persons reports since Harvey inundated the city and 27 of those individuals have been located.Photos with pleas for help have been posted on social media, cut-and-pasted and retweeted by thousands of people as desperate family members seek loved ones they fear may be dead — but who may only have a cellphone without power. The uncertainty is terrifying. One of the worries, said Schlegelmilch, is that many of the severely flooded neighborhoods weren’t in evacuation areas. Additionally, the people most likely to be found dead are the elderly, the infirm and the people who were isolated from others — along with folks who didn’t have the means or wherewithal to flee. Sometimes it’s a matter of having the strength to wade through flood waters a few blocks to safety, or to pull one’s self up onto a roof. “Those who are the most vulnerable when the sky is blue, they are also the most vulnerable when the sky is grey,” Schleglemilch said.Fugate, the former FEMA head, said it’s also common for people to die during the recovery phase, when stress levels are high and people aren’t making clear-headed decisions. “Stay safe, stay home, stay off the roads if you can. Don’t go sightseeing,” he warned.Still, experts say there is some good news: They don’t expect the death toll from Harvey to come anywhere close to that of Katrina, when 1,800 people died. Many of those flood-related fatalities came when a levee broke and water inundated New Orleans. People were stranded in extreme heat and the federal response was slow. Emergency managers learned painful lessons during Katrina, and have put those lessons to use in this storm.Residents of New Orleans during Katrina saw top-to-bottom failures at every level, experts said. During Harvey, “state and local officials and FEMA were mobilizing, water rescue teams were prepared, in anticipation of this,” said Fugate, adding that safe shelters were almost immediately in place for Texas residents, unlike New Orleans. “That provided faster rescues.”One other thing seems to have helped Houston in its time of need: the residents themselves. “Neighbors helping neighbors,” Fugate said. “That will keep the death toll down.” ___ Follow Tamara Lush on Twitter at Http://twitter.com/tamaralushlast_img read more

Windows 10 Initial Setup Script review

first_imgWindows 10 Initial Setup Script review by Martin Brinkmann on October 06, 2017 in Windows – Last Update: October 06, 2017 – 2 commentsWindows 10 Initial Setup Script is a PowerShell script that you may run on Windows 10 devices to make all kinds of post-setup changes to the operating system.While it is designed for post-setup operation, it can also be useful after bigger operating system updates that sometimes make changes to the configuration.The script itself is not designed to be run right away. The developer recommends that users and administrators go through it to enable or disable modifications that it makes.Since it runs automatically when executed, an option to deal with this while the script is executed is not available.Windows 10 Initial Setup ScriptThe first thing that you should do after downloading the latest release version of the script is to open it in a plain text editor to go through it once and adjust what it does based on your requirements.This may sound complicated, but it is not actually. Basically, all you need to do is go through the first lines of the script as it lists all the tweaks there. A tweak with # in front is a comment, and it won’t be executed.So, place the # symbol in front of any tweak that you don’t want executed, and save the script afterwards.The script divides the tweaks and modifications into groups. There is a privacy settings group, one for service tweaks, and another for user interface tweaks for instance.The main issue that you may run into when you edit the script is that it is sometimes not clear what a tweak does.  While it is easy to understand what “DisableAdvertisingID” or “DisableRemoteAssistance” do, it may not be clear directly what “DisableSMB1” or “UninstallMsftBloat” do.The script needs to be run with elevated privileges. It will apply all tweaks that are not blocked from execution. I suggest you create a backup of the system before you run the script. This may not be required if you run it right after setup, as you can simply install the operating system anew in this case.Windows 10 Initial Setup Script comes with options to restore functionality to tweaks that have been applied previously. The reverse of each tweak is listed next to it in the interface. Simply remove the # in front of it and add the # symbol to the “disabling” tweak to restore the functionality.You may also run the script using custom presets. This allows you to apply specific tweaks instead of all of them that are enabled currently in the script. A basic example is powershell.exe -NoProfile -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -File Win10.ps1 EnableFirewall EnableDefender which would only enable Firewall and Defender again. The preset names are all listed at the top of the script when you open it.The script is compatible with Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016.Closing WordsWin10 Initial Tweak Setup Script is a handy script to make changes quickly to Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 devices. It is highly flexible when it comes to the tweaks, thanks to the support for custom presets, and supports a wide range of modifications that you can apply to the operating system.Now Read: Check out our overview of privacy programs for Windows 10.Summary12345 Author Rating4 based on 10 votes Software Name Windows 10 Initial Setup ScriptOperating System WindowsSoftware Category AdministrationLanding Page https://github.com/Disassembler0/Win10-Initial-Setup-Script Advertisementlast_img read more

Top UN court orders Japan to end Antarctic whale hunt

first_imgTHE HAGUE – The United Nations’ top court on Monday ordered Japan to end its annual Antarctic whale hunt, saying in a landmark ruling that the program was a commercial activity disguised as science.Tokyo said it would honor the ruling shortly after it was handed down at the Hague-based International Court of Justice, but did not rule out the possibility of future whaling programs.“Japan shall revoke any existent authorization, permit or licence granted in relation to JARPA II [research program] and refrain from granting any further permits,” world court presiding judge Peter Tomka ordered.Tokyo was accused of exploiting a legal loophole in the 1986 ban on commercial whaling that allowed the practice to collect scientific data.Japan had argued that its JARPA II research program was aimed at studying the viability of whale hunting, but the world court found that it had failed to examine ways of doing the research without killing whales, or at least while killing fewer whales.Agreeing with Australia, which in 2010 hauled Japan before the Hague-based court in a bid to end whale hunting in the Southern Ocean, Tomka said that “special permissions granted by Japan are not for purposes of scientific research.”“The evidence does not establish that the program’s design and implementation are reasonable in relation to its stated [scientific] objectives,” he said. “The court considers that the scientific output to date has been limited.”JARPA II has been running since 2005, in which time some 3,600 minke whales have been slaughtered.Norway and Iceland have formally challenged the 1986 International Whaling Commission (IWC) moratorium and continued with their commercial whaling operations.Only Japan had tried to by-pass the regulations by claiming it was conducting research, even though it admitted the resulting meat ended up on people’s plates.Conservation groups hailed the ruling, which Japan said it would respect despite “deep disappointment.”“As a state that respects the rule of law … and as a responsible member of the global community, Japan will abide by the decision of the court,” chief negotiator Koji Tsuruoka told reporters outside the court.Japanese government spokesman Noriyuki Shikata, howeve,r did not exclude seeking a resumption of Antarctic whaling.“In terms of a future course of action, we have to carefully examine the content of the judgment,” Shikata told AFP.‘Not convinced’ Environmental group Sea Shepherd, which has been campaigning against the Japanese whaling fleet in the Southern Ocean, said it was ready to refocus its attention on the Atlantic.“I’m not 100 percent convinced they will abide by the ruling. They tend to agree and then do whatever they want to do anyway, that has been the history with the International Whaling Commission,” Sea Shepherd founder Paul Watson told AFP by telephone.“If they don’t return [to the Antarctic], then we’ll be able to refocus our efforts against Norwegian, Icelandic and Faroese whaling,” he said.The world court said Japan’s whaling program has led to the killing of 6,700 minke whales since it was established 18 years ago.Canberra argued that the program was in breach of international conventions and Japan’s obligation to preserve marine mammals and their environment.“This decision sends a clear message to governments around the world that the exploitation of animals will no longer be tolerated and animals must be protected at the highest level,” said Claire Bass, head of wildlife campaigns at the World Society for the Protection of Animals.“All eyes are now on Japan to respect this decision,” she said.“The ruling of the court demands to be observed,” said Ghislaine Llewellyn, conservation manager at WWF-Australia, added.Japan has consistently defended the practice of eating whale meat as a culinary tradition and vowed it would “never stop whaling.”In April last year, Tokyo announced its whaling haul from the Southern Ocean was at a record low because of “unforgivable sabotage” by Sea Shepherd activists.Established in 1945 to rule in disputes between countries, the International Court of Justice is the United Nations’ highest judicial body and the only one of five principal U.N. bodies not located in New York.

Fed Thinning Out its Balance Sheet

first_img The Federal Open Market Committee has been talking for months about normalizing its balance sheet, which currently is comprised of over $6 trillion in mortgage-backed securities and $4.5 trillion in bond holdings. Now, it looks like that day is inching closer by the minute, and could arrive as early as this fall.According to a recent report by Bankrate.com, the Fed’s plan is to start slow—chipping away a total of $10 billion a month, $6 billion in government debt and another $4 billion in mortgage-back securities. Eventually, the goal is to increase that number to $50 billion a month.The Fed first started buying up Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities to keep long-term interest rates down in response to the Great Recession, but they now feel it to be the appropriate time to allow long-term rates to return to what has historically been a normal level. Further, the Fed wants to ensure that it can continue to help the next time the economy falls into a recession. According to Bankrate.com, with the Fed’s bond holdings as high as they are and interest rates as low as they are, they’re hands will be tied if they want to provide assistance.What could that mean, though? First, the report cites rising mortgage rates, due to the fact that mortgage rates are tied to yields on 10-year treasury bonds. When the Fed unloads its long-term treasuries, bond prices should decrease while yields increase, resulting in higher costs when financing a home.Second, the stock market, which has been consistent in is overall increase, will show more signs of volatility and “choppier days.” The report also says that economic growth should slow once the Fed changes its monetary policy.Once the Fed actually starts reducing its balance sheet, the consequences will become more apparent. But looking forward never hurt anyone.

first_imgGo back to the enewsletterFamed for its dramatic treetop arrival via a suspension bridge, Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan is now offering guests a 180-degree change of perspective, with Bali’s first hotel arrival by river raft.Submerged in a river valley close to the artistic centre of Ubud, Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan has launched the innovative rafting check-in as an option for guests transferring from its sister Resort, the beach-front Four Seasons Jimbaran Bay on Bali’s south-west coast. Instead of the usual 90-minute road transfer, travellers combining a stay at both Resorts can instead be taken by private car (60 minutes’ drive) to the departure point for a two-hour rafting adventure down Bali’s longest river, the Ayung. While they enjoy a leisurely guided adventure through Class III rapids with views of lush jungle, rice terraces and majestic gorges, their luggage continues by car and precedes their arrival at Four Seasons Resort Sayan.After discovering secluded sites – including a natural holy spring and an historic dam belonging to Bali’s UNESCO World Heritage-listed subak irrigation system – rafters land directly at the Resort’s Riverside Restaurant. Waiting staff ensure a seamless check-in and within minutes guests are relaxing in their room, delivering a hotel arrival unlike any other.“This new arrival by river offers the opposite view with a slow reveal from under the canopy of trees, making it perfect for repeat guests who have experienced the bridge arrival before,” says Resort Manager Gianni Costa. “It does not feel like a check-in experience, but rather a transition to another world, welcomed by the friendliest people on Earth.”Located amid two acres (almost a hectare) of rice fields and groves of fruit trees, vegetable and herb gardens, 42 private pool villas and 18 suites enable guests to retreat from the world and embrace the valley’s healing energy.For guests who book the Bali: Twice the Magic combined stay package at Four Seasons Resorts Jimbaran Bay and Sayan, a private rafting transfer is available priced at IDR 3,400,000++ for two people.For all other bookings and packages, a Private Rafting Transfer from Jimbaran Bay to Sayan is IDR 4,450,000++ for two people.Four Seasons private rafting is also available for daily excursions for guests of both Resorts.Contact reservations.bali@fourseasons.com for more information.Go back to the enewsletterlast_img read more
