The Monday news briefing An ataglance survey of some top stories

first_imgHighlights from the news file for Monday, Nov. 27———POSTMEDIA AND TORSTAR CLOSING PAPERS: The federal government is coming under fresh pressure to find solutions for Canada’s ailing newspaper industry amid word that dozens of community and daily newspapers across the country will soon close their doors. Torstar Corp. and Postmedia Network Inc. announced Monday they will cut nearly 300 jobs when they shutter more than 30 newspapers, most of them in Ontario. Postmedia announced it will cut 244 jobs as it plans to shutter 21 of the 22 community newspaper properties it is acquiring from Torstar as well as the Metro Winnipeg and Metro Ottawa free dailies. Torstar’s Metroland Media Group Ltd., meanwhile, said it will close three of the seven daily newspapers in Ontario it’s buying from Postmedia as well as all eight community newspapers it’s purchased, resulting in the loss of 46 jobs. Torstar said one job will disappear as it buys and closes the free dailies 24Hours Toronto and 24Hours Vancouver. Canadian union leader Jerry Dias called the closures “devastating” and urged federal Heritage Minister Melanie Joly to take action to protect print journalism. Joly unveiled a cultural strategy in September that was criticized by industry experts for lacking expected measures that could have given a boost to Canada’s struggling newspapers.———PRINCE HARRY, MEGHAN MARKLE’S ENGAGEMENT HAS SPECIAL RESONANCE FOR TORONTO: Her future home is on the grounds of Kensington Palace, but Meghan Markle’s recent years have reportedly been spent living on a quiet, tree-lined street in Toronto with her two rescue dogs, Bogart and Guy. Markle, whose engagement to Prince Harry was announced Monday, is best known for her role as paralegal Rachel Zane on the hit TV show “Suits,” which is filmed in Toronto. The 36-year-old TV star’s relocation north to Canada was a bit of an adjustment for the California native, who grew up around L.A. with her mother and father, a successful lighting director in Hollywood. “Seven Canadian winters!” she told Vanity Fair about her time filming in Toronto. “A long time for someone who grew up in Southern California.” Excitement over the much-anticipated announcement had a special resonance in Toronto, where the celebrity couple officially unveiled their romance this spring. The couple — rumoured to be dating for months and stalked by paparazzi on both sides of the ocean — appeared at the Invictus Games in the Canadian city in late September, as Harry presided over the multi-sport event for wounded military personnel and veterans.———$100 MILLION TO GO TO FEDERAL ‘GAY PURGE’ VICTIMS: The Trudeau government has earmarked more than $100 million to compensate members of the military and other federal agencies whose careers were sidelined or ended due to their sexual orientation, The Canadian Press has learned. The money will be paid out as part of a class-action lawsuit settlement to employees who were investigated, sanctioned and sometimes fired as part of the so-called gay purge. An agreement in principle in the court action emerged Friday, just days before the government delivers a sweeping apology for discrimination over several decades against members of the LGBTQ community. Details of the agreement must still be worked out by the parties and approved by the Federal Court, but it’s expected that several thousand people will be eligible for the financial compensation. As part of the apology, the federal government is also putting $250,000 toward LGBTQ community projects to combat homophobia and provide support for people in crisis.———WOMAN VICIOUSLY ATTACK IN 2014 DIES: A woman who lost both her legs and much of her eyesight after she was viciously attacked and set on fire in a back alley more than three years ago has died. Linda Lavallee, a friend of Marlene Bird, said the 50-year-old Indigenous woman died Monday at a hospital in Prince Albert, Sask. Lavallee said Bird entered hospital on Nov. 20, went into a coma on Wednesday and never regained consciousness after suffering heart, liver and kidney failure. Lavallee said Bird had forgiven Leslie Black, the man who attacked and sexually assaulted her. But she was upset over the 16-year prison term he received in September, and the stress of the case and its outcome affected her health. Friends saw what was happening to her and convinced her to go to hospital. “It was very hard on her, even though she forgave (Black),” said Lavallee, a resident of Chilliwack, B.C. “She thought the amount of time that guy was going to get was never enough for the amount of pain she went through. She was really hurt and couldn’t accept it.”———QUEBEC DAD’S IMPASSIONED PLEA AGAINST BULLYING: The father of a Quebec teen who took his own life last week after years of alleged incessant bullying wants stricter measures for how schools deal with intimidation. Martin Dufour said his 15-year-old son Simon was bullied in primary school, with the taunting extending into his time in secondary school. Dufour said he spoke with administrators over the years but that nothing ultimately helped his son. “What I would like to see is a provincial guideline for every school that they should, that they could, that they would apply for everyone who’s a victim or is bullied,” he told The Canadian Press in an interview Monday. He believes such a plan already existed at his son’s school in Longueuil, south of Montreal, but is unclear whether it was actually implemented. Described by family as someone who loved listening to music, playing video games and cracking jokes, Simon had faced relentless bullying but his father noted there was an uptick in recent months and that there were no direct signs things were going badly. According to him, it’s time for bullies to be held accountable for their actions, with harsher punishment for those who bully on a regular basis.———COST OF ENDING NAFTA MINOR, STUDIES FIND: Canada’s economy would lose less than one percentage point if U.S. President Donald Trump makes good on his threat to rip up the North American Free Trade Agreement, say two new studies that suggest ending the trade treaty would do minor damage. The total impact of ending NAFTA and reinstating tariffs would trim 0.7 to one per cent off Canada’s GDP, according to a Bank of Montreal study, while another study by the former head of computer modeling for Canada’s foreign-affairs ministry puts the damage at 0.55 per cent. Both studies’ authors agree these findings carry a lesson for Canadian negotiators: they can bargain with confidence and not feel pressured to sign a bad deal, because the end of NAFTA is far from a total scare scenario. The damage would be much smaller than the financial crisis of 2008; smaller even than the impact of the soaring loonie of the late 2000s; and would be roughly comparable to the national effect of the 2015 oil-price plunge, says BMO’s chief economist.———OTTAWA ASKED TO REVIEW P.E.I. BUSINESS IMMIGRATION PROGRAM: P.E.I. opposition leaders are calling for Ottawa to investigate the operations of a provincial business immigration program that faces allegations of abuse and poor oversight. James Aylward, the leader of the Progressive Conservative Party, said in an interview Friday that the province has shown an unwillingness to review or reform the program due to millions of dollars in forfeited deposits it currently receives from immigrants who don’t ultimately open a business. Immigration lawyers have criticized the ownership stream of the provincial nominee program as a side door to entering the country, with over half of last year’s participants losing their $150,000 deposit to the province after they didn’t open a business. The Island Investment Development Inc., which holds the deposits for the newcomers’ businesses, indicates $18 million in net revenues over the past year came from immigrant companies that defaulted on their obligation to create a business. The figure is roughly equivalent to half of the province’s additional budget for infrastructure this year.———GAP LOOMS IN IRVING SHIPBUILDING SCHEDULE: The federal government is scrambling to close a looming gap in the construction of two new fleets of naval vessels in Halifax, which Irving Shipbuilding has previously warned could result in layoffs if left unaddressed. Officials say they are facing the likelihood of a break between when construction ends on the last of the navy’s new Arctic patrol ships and when work begins on its new fleet of much larger warships. The exact size of the gap still isn’t known, and will depend on whether the government ends up with five or six Arctic ships and how much extra work must be done on whatever design is chosen for the navy’s new warships. Irving won’t know until at least next year whether it will be able to build six Arctic patrol vessels within the government’s $3.5-billion budget, or only five. And the government doesn’t know when a design for the new warships — which will replace the navy’s 12 frigates and three recently retired destroyers — will finally be selected.———TV REPORTER SPEAKING OUT ABOUT DEROGATORY COMMENTS: A southwestern Ontario television reporter is speaking out about the stream of harassment she faces at work after misogynistic comments were hurled her way three times last week. CHCH reporter Britt Dixon says female reporters deal with harassment regularly while on the job, highlighted by three incidents over four days last week where men yelled a vulgar phrase at her. The latest incident occurred as Dixon interviewed a Hamilton police officer in uniform in front of a police station. The officer stopped the interview and arrested the man, charging a 23-year-old American with causing a disturbance. Dixon says the other two incidents occurred while she was at Mohawk College talking to students about returning to school after the five-week faculty strike. The college has apologized to Dixon and is conducting an investigation. In August, police charged a Newfoundland man with causing a disturbance after he yelled the phrase at a reporter. Police laid a mischief charge against another Newfoundland man who yelled the same thing toward a journalist in April.———ARGOS RETURN TO TORONTO HOISTING GREY CUP: The Toronto Argonauts started the season with new management, a new coach and low expectations after a last-place finish. They somehow managed to end the season as Grey Cup champions. The Argonauts completed a remarkable worst-to-first turnaround with a 27-24 comeback victory over the Calgary Stampeders in Ottawa on Sunday night, capping a wild Grey Cup game with a late touchdown on a 109-yard fumble return and go-ahead field goal in the final minute. After a celebration that lasted into the wee hours in the nation’s capital, a group of bleary-eyed Argonauts arrived home Monday morning with the championship trophy in tow. “The story they have is more important than anything they’ll get out of it,” Toronto head coach Marc Trestman said of the win. “They’ve got an opportunity and a platform to really tell a great story about how people can come together and become something bigger than themselves.”———last_img read more

Raj Guvs remarks supporting PM Modi violative of poll code

first_imgNew Delhi: Rajasthan Governor Kalyan Singh’s remarks supporting the return of Narendra Modi as prime minister are violative of model code of conduct, the Election Commission has concluded.Sources said since Singh holds a constitutional post, the EC will write to President Ram Nath Kovind, flagging the issue. The poll panel had examined the remarks made by the former Uttar Pradesh chief minister in the light of model code violation as holding a constitutional post makes him “apolitical”. Addressing BJP workers at his Aligarh residence on March 23, Singh reportedly said, “All of us are BJP workers and we want the party to win. We want Modiji to become the prime minister. It is necessary that Modiji becomes the PM again.” The Governor made these remarks to placate some agitated BJP members who gathered outside his house over ticket distribution.last_img read more

UN official lauds role of sport in European Union development programmes

“Mainstreaming sport in all the areas where the European Commission is working, particularly the use of sport for social change and integration within the European Union member States, but also in the assistance towards developing countries, is a very crucial step,” said the Secretary-General’s Special Adviser on Sport for Development and Peace, Wilfried Lemke. Mr. Lemke, who is on a visit to Brussels, is slated to restart an EU-UN partnership in the arena of sport for development and peace, and to discuss potential collaboration with heads of UN agencies.“The EU will definitely be an important partner in the reactivation of the Sport for Development and Peace International Working Group,” he said.Following his visit to Brussels, the Special Adviser will head to Dubai, where he will be chairing the Global Agenda Council on the Role of Sports in Society set up by the World Economic Forum last year. After that he travels to South Africa to attend the inauguration of the first Football for Hope Center in Cape Town, as well as the inauguration of the Interdisciplinary Centre of Excellence for Sport Science and Development of the University of Western Cape. 10 November 2009A senior United Nations official today praised the European Commission for its use of sport in bringing together diverse communities within the continent’s geo-political bloc, as well as helping people in poor countries. read more

He also ordered US flags at government buildings to be flown at half-mast until 31 October.On Saturday morning, worshippers had gathered at the synagogue for a baby naming ceremony during the Sabbath.Squirrel Hill has one of the largest Jewish populations in Pennsylvania and this would have been the synagogue’s busiest day of the week.Police said they received first calls about an active shooter at 09:54 local time (13:54 GMT), and sent officers to the scene a minute later.According to reports, Mr Bowers, a white male, entered the building during the morning service armed with an assault rifle and three handguns.The gunman had already shot dead 11 people and was leaving the synagogue after about 20 minutes when he encountered Swat officers and exchanged fire with them, FBI agent Robert Jones said.The attacker then moved back into the building to try to hide from the police.He surrendered after a shootout, and is now being treated in hospital for what has been described as multiple gunshot wounds.The crime scene was “horrific”, Pittsburgh’s Public Safety Director Wendell Hissrich told reporters. “One of the worst I’ve seen, and I’ve [worked] on some plane crashes. It’s very bad.”Mr Hissrich said no children were among the casualties.US media said he had shouted “All Jews must die” as he carried out the attack.Social media posts by someone with the name Robert Bowers were also reported to be full of anti-Semitic comments.FBI special agent Bob Jones told a press conference that Mr Bowers did not appear to be known to authorities prior to the attack.He said that any motive remains unknown but that authorities believe he was acting alone.

Health check

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram With the bulk of the holiday season over, could 2011 be the year for a new or improved mortgage?If your current mortgage no longer fits with your goals, you could benefit from refinancing or approaching your lender for a better deal. Start with the rates you’re paying. This isn’t the only thing to look for in a good home loan, but it’s a good start since small differences in interest rates can equate to hundreds or thousands of dollars a year. The lenders and comparison sites have loan calculators and you should spend some times on them, become an expert on what you can save.Use the comparison sites to get a 12-month picture of where interest rates have been with this lender. If another lender has a much cheaper product, is it a honeymoon rate or is it part of long-standing policy?Rates alone won’t decide the quality of a loan. So start by making a list of your goals – this clarifies what you’re looking for and brings the mortgage’s features into more practical focus.What about payment periods? Weekly or fortnightly payments allow you to pay off of a mortgage faster than the standard monthly repayment. Does your current lender doesn’t offer this? Also, do they allow you to repay more each fortnight than the agreed schedule? This can speed the payment of the loan and is important to many people.Lump sum repayments are important for business owners, so you can put unscheduled sums into the mortgage, bringing down your loan balance and saving you money. Yet your current lender may discourage it; your current lender may also use penalties and fees to discourage you from early repayment.If your goals include retiring debt quickly, then a mortgage with no early repayment penalties should be high on your check list.Another issue is the ease with which you can draw-down equity from your current loan. If you use your mortgage as a ‘bank’ – for holidays, renovations etc. – then you need a lender who makes this simple.Do you want a redraw mortgage, where all your income goes into the mortgage account? Or do you need to be able to switch between fixed and variable-rate mortgage or the flexibility to split the loans as a mix of both? If this is important, add it to the health check list.In short, once you have a goal, you must find the mortgage product that supports your goals. Define your goals, do your research, and as always – be prepared to act when you find what suits you.Make 2011 the year when you take back ownership of your goals.Mark Bouris is the Executive Chairman of Yellow Brick Road, a financial services company offering home loans, financial planning, accounting & tax and insurance.

Stephen Saunders

first_imgIn the swirl of magazine “Tweeting” and “Facebooking,” there are some that do social media better than others. Stephen Saunders, co-founder, president and CEO of online startup Light Reading and later Internet Evolution, is one of the few with a successful strategy.Saunders founded Light Reading in 2000, an online source for technology and financial analysis of the communications industry, and sold to UBM in 2005 for $33 million. He then took a six month break only to hit the ground running with Internet Evolution, a macrosite for Internet news, analysis and opinion.What makes Saunders’ models different from other online media networks is that Light Reading and Internet Evolution monetize their audience with a content-driven, integrated publishing model. With Internet Evolution, he “wanted to take what was happening with social networking technology and apply to the b-to-b space. Really, it’s unusual for a single sponsor [IBM] site to get that much notice. My hope is that this model with be used as a template for other publishers.” Unlike a typical social network, a b-to-b social network requires publishers to rethink what a social network should be, explains Saunders. Content needs to be professionally produced—and paid for—to get user discussion underway. No more are the days of free, user generated content, he says. In the case of Internet Evolution, it was an investment. “Over the year, we put close to 700 blogs up on the site, generating 20,000 messages,” he adds. Unlike many social networking models struggling to monetize, Saunders says that, “At no point was any decision [with regards to Internet Evolution] speculative. There is always a clear justification for UBM.”Saunders, who is now working as a consultant (or insultant, as he refers to himself), says that Internet Evolution will roll out digital streaming this May, and is working to make IBM’s non-mobile materials mobile, “basically becoming a service provider.”VITAL STATS: Light Reading was sold to UBM in 2005 for $33 million. Internet Evolution’s 700 blogs generate around 20,000 messages.last_img read more

Government shutdown delays launch of new tech products

first_imgGetty Images Tech lovers may see fewer cutting-edge gadgets hitting the market in the next few months. That’s because the Federal Communications Commission, the Food and Drug Administration and other US agencies that certify the safety of consumer-electronics devices are closed due to the government shutdown, now in its 21st day.And if the government doesn’t reopen soon, the shutdown could also affect the rollout of the next generation of wireless networks, built around 5G technology that promises to make them significantly faster and more responsive. Trade group the Telecommunications Industry Association, which represents makers of telecom gear, said Friday that the shutdown is slowing the introduction of new connected devices that need certification from the FCC and that the closure could ultimately hamper 5G deployments.The shutdown “comes at a vital moment when the US is competing to stay ahead of the world in the race to 5G,” said TIA Government Affairs SVP Cinnamon Rogers. If companies can’t get their required FCC thumbs-up, there’ll be a “serious and negative impact on the approval of new connected devices that are designed to enable both 5G deployment and the full ecosystem of next generation technologies that 5G will support,” he added in a statement.The partial shutdown, which began Dec. 22 after the House of Representatives and Senate failed to come to agreement on President Donald Trump’s demand for $5 billion to fund work on a border wall, doesn’t look to be ending anytime soon. Neither congressional Democrats nor Trump show signs of caving to the other’s demands.The impasse is having real economic consequences for 800,000 federal workers, who on Friday didn’t receive their first paycheck since the shutdown started. But the ripple effects are now starting to be felt more widely, including in the tech industry, where some device makers are being forced to put product launches on hold.  What’s being hit by the shutdownThe FCC officially ceased most operations Jan. 3 but kept some going, such as work on the 5G spectrum auction currently underway. But the agency furloughed more than 80 percent of its staff and shuttered several databases used by certification bodies authorized to work with product developers and labs. The FCC requires most new devices that emit radio frequency energy to be certified to ensure that the energy doesn’t harm humans or interfere with other products or services that use radio spectrum. Almost all the actual testing is outsourced to FCC-authorized companies or Telecommunications Certification Bodies. For many products, though, the FCC must provide the final sign-off. When the agency detailed its plans for the shutdown, it spelled out that these third parties wouldn’t “be able to upload applications for equipment authorization or issue grants of certification,” because they’d lack access to the necessary database.”Any product with a transmitter in it is not getting certified until the shutdown ends,” said Ron Quirk, an attorney heading up the IoT practice for Marashlian & Donahue PLLC. “And if it’s not been certified by the FCC, manufacturers and equipment suppliers can’t sell it, or even market it, in the US.”  What kinds of products are we talking about? Think new phones, tablets, Wi-Fi routers and a host of internet-of-things gadgets, like the net-connected ball that watches your pets, the connected sensors for your home water system to combat leaks and waste, or the $400 internet-connected juicer. And it’s not just FCC-certified devices. The shutdown could also impact some consumer-electronics products that’re considered medical devices and thus need approval from the FDA. That includes health care devices shown off at CES 2019 in Las Vegas this week: things like DIY sonograms, watches that measure your blood pressure, or vests that alert patients they’re in heart failure.It’s unclear how many consumer-electronics products may be affected by the closure, since it’s hard to know where specific companies and devices were in the approval process when the shutdown started. Neither the FCC nor the FDA returned calls seeking comment. But the list of new IoT devices needing FCC approval alone could be in the thousands, considering the number of new gadgets expected to flood the market over the next few years. In 2017, there were 8.4 billion connected devices. The volume should hit 20.4 billion by 2020, according to analyst firm Gartner. FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel took to Twitter to comment on the sweeping effects of the shutdown on equipment makers. “Go ahead, take a look at the back of the nearest electronic device,” she wrote in her tweet. “You’ll see an [FCC] number. The agency certifies every innovative mobile phone, television, and computer that emits radio frequency before they can head to market. Guess what is not happening during the shutdown?” screen-shot-2019-01-11-at-8-07-25-pmThe FDA’s policy for device certification during the shutdown is somewhat different than the FCC’s. The agency has said it’ll still continue to process applications submitted before the shutdown took effect, but it won’t process any new applications. Still, attorneys from the law firm Hogan Lovells, who shepherd clients through the FDA approval process, say the backlog that’s growing during the shutdown will be a problem once the government reopens. “Depending on the length of the shutdown, medical product centers may well be looking at a sizable backlog of applications to triage when the agency is fully operational again,” they wrote in a blog last month. “Thus, if the current shutdown persists, industry should anticipate that certain agency delays will likely continue for some time.”Smaller companies to feel the heatExperts also point out that it’s smaller startups, rather than huge tech companies, that’ll suffer the most from the shutdown.”It’s companies focused on creating a ‘unicorn’ business around one or two key innovative products that will be affected most,” said Marc Martin, a partner at Perkins Coie LLP, who heads the firm’s communications industry group. “They don’t have a vast array of products in the market to keep them going.”By contrast, companies like Apple, Samsung, and Sony might not be happy about putting their plans on hold, but delaying a product launch by weeks or even months “isn’t going to bring down their business,” Martin said. Still, Martin and Quirk say their clients aren’t freaking out just yet. The timing of the shutdown, over the holidays, has likely softened the blow, since it’s typically a slower period. But concern is growing. “It’s one thing if the shutdown lasts a few weeks,” Martin said. “Everyone can take some delay in stride. But if it goes on another month or two months, I’m going to be getting some angry calls.”The Smartest Stuff: Innovators are thinking up new ways to make you, and the things around you, smarter.5G is your next big upgrade: Everything you need to know about the 5G revolution.

The extension works on websites using a “blind signature” protocol, and reduces the number of captchas that are shown to users by gaining tokens when completing captchas that are spent to pass future challenges.The “blinding” procedure means that signed and redeemed tokens are cryptographically unlinkable from the server perspective and, as such, are suitable for usage in conjunction with external privacy measures (such as VPNs).Privacy Pass has been developed by members of the Royal Holloway University of London, and the University of Waterloo.Cloudflare supports Privacy Pass currently, and clients get 30 signed tokens for each captcha that is solved in the browser while the extension is enabled.This reduces the number of captchas displayed to users significantly, and is probably most appealing to users who connect to VPN networks, Tor, or are assigned IP addresses with bad track records.Privacy Pass stores data locally that relates to the created tokens. The extension adds an icon to the browser’s toolbar that lists a — somewhat broken — interface right now listing the number of available passes (before another captcha needs to be solved). The “get more passes” link opens the project’s site on GitHub, and the only other option is to clear the available passes.Check out the FAQ for additional details.Closing wordsPrivacy Pass improves web browsing for Internet users who run into CloudFlare captchas regularly. Tor users are probably prime candidates for the extension, but certain VPN IP addresses and regular  IP addresses may throw captchas fairly regularly as well.Summary12345 Author Rating5 based on 3 votes Software Name Privacy PassSoftware Category BrowserLanding Page Advertisementlast_img read more

The new Defina system in Pulmonology combines a state-of-the art HD processor with i-scan imaging technology and two highly maneuverable HD bronchoscopes. This combination serves to deliver high HD image quality, which subsequently supports clinical outcomes across the complete range of diagnostic and therapeutic applications.The HD Defina system delivers sharp and clear image quality, enabling rapid and highly detailed visualization for the improved evaluation of anatomical details of the bronchial mucosa. This in combination with i-scan technology facilitates the precise detection and demarcation of suspicious areas and assists in characterization of abnormalities to support therapeutic decisions.Fully complying with increasing hygiene requirements, the system uses disposable accessories to reduce the risk of cross-contamination. It is also STERRAD-compatible, ensuring that it is clear of multidrug-resistant and extreme drug-resistant Mycobacterium. Further adding to patient safety, the new disposable suction valve is safely attached to the endoscope using a click mechanism that cannot be dislodged. This also delivers strong suction to efficiently remove secretion and control bleeding for precise sampling.Used in conjunction with the EPK-3000 HD processor, the two HD bronchoscopes (EB15-J10 and EB19-J10) of the Defina system in Pulmonology feature a new-design lightweight control body with an ergonomically positioned suction valve, angulation levers and remote control buttons. Effortless maneuverability within the bronchus, with easy access even to the right upper lobe of the lung, is made possible due to the bronchoscopes’ 210-degree distal tip deflection and insertion tube flexibility.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 0:26Loaded: 0.00%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -0:26 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Belgium dresses peeing statue to honor Costa Rica

first_img Costa Rica’s Ambassador to Belgium Alfaro Solano (right) attended an afternoon ceremony at the site of Manneken Pis, Sept. 12, 2015. Lindsay Fendt/The Tico Times BRUSSELS, Belgium — For Costa Rica’s Independence Day, bands will play, school children will hold parades and the president will speak, but perhaps the most honorable display of Costa Rican pride was held last week halfway across the world with the statue of a small peeing boy.Saturday morning, Manneken Pis, the celebrated Belgian statue of a peeing boy, was removed from his mantle in the country’s capital of Brussels and robed in traditional Costa Rican garb. For the entire day, photos taken by the throngs of tourists who visit the statue showed not the famous naked boy, but a tiny Costa Rican campesino dressed in a khaki suit, hat, red bandana and holding a machete sheath. A Costa Rican flag was later added to help the confused crowd.Costa Rica’s Ambassador to Belgium Alfaro Solano attended an afternoon ceremony to recognize the accolade.Sculpted sometime during the 17th Century, Manneken Pis has become the primary symbol of Belgian folklore. The original statue and subsequent recreations were repeatedly stolen, prompting the Belgian government to keep the most recent, restored version (from 1968) locked up. The outdoor re-creation is now dressed up several times a week to celebrate different cultural events.

Cyprus turned back 18 wouldbe fighters

first_imgCyprus has turned back 18 foreign nationals on their way to fight in Syria on the side of the Islamic State, foreign ministry permanent secretary Alexandros Zenon told the Cyprus News Agency.“Due to our geographical position we are in close cooperation with various security and intelligence services of countries in our neighbourhood and beyond that,” Zenon said.He added that this cooperation “has been quite effective, since we have sent back to their countries of origin more than 18 so-called foreign fighters who wanted to pass to the occupied areas of our country, to go to Turkey and then to Syria to join the forces of the so called Islamic State.”These events took place in 2015The foreign ministry official said these people were European passport holders and came to Cyprus from Western countries.He said these so-called fighters have stopped using this route because, on one hand Turkey has become more strict and does not want them to pass through its territory, and it has been proven that Cyprus is not a country via which these people can easily travel to Syria.You May LikeTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionOne Thing All Liars Have in Common, Brace YourselfTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionUndoFigLeaf Beta AppGet Maximum Privacy with Minimum EffortFigLeaf Beta AppUndoTotal Battle – Online Strategy GameIf You’re PC User This Strategy Game Is A Must-Have!Total Battle – Online Strategy GameUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoTwo arrested in connection with attempted murderUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
