Jorge Barrera APTN National NewsFormer Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC) president Michele Audette said lost and late mail-in ballots along with a lack of political experience cost her the federal Liberal nomination for the Quebec riding of Manicougan.Audette said she lost the nomination by a razor-thin margin to Mario Tremblay, the former mayor of Longue-Rive. Audette said she received 478 votes to Tremblay’s 502.Audette left her position as president of NWAC to run for the Liberals.Voting for the Liberal nomination was held in two locations over the weekend and the final tally was announced Sunday, according to a party spokesperson. The Liberal party also allowed for mail-in ballots because of the riding’s large geographical expanse.Audette said she still plans to work in another capacity for the Liberal party and leader Justin Trudeau despite the loss.“I am still going to work for Trudeau’s team because we have to get rid of Harper,” she said. “There is always a place in this party where I can bring my passion, my love and expertise.”Audette said she has already received phone calls offering her new roles, but she plans to take the week off before deciding her next steps.Audette said she managed to sign up 700 people to the Liberal party and visited more towns and villages than any of the other candidates. She said Tremblay kept his focus on his home community which gave him the boost he needed to clinch the nomination.“This guy, what he did, he sold his memberships…in his municipality and it is a small community, a small place, so he was able to raise that membership,” she said.Audette said weather and lost or delayed mail-in ballots proved her undoing.“We had storms over here, some voting mail came too late,” she said. “Some got lost.”Audette said she was initially saddened by her loss.“I was very, very sad…I was emotional. I let myself cry, but I was also very proud at the same time of all the work we did,” she said.Audette said she believes her campaign over-extended itself.“The people with experience told me, ‘Michele, keep your borders close,’” she said.The loss, however, has not quenched her appetite for electoral politics and she plans to run again when the opportunity arises.“I will be back,” said Audette. “I told the candidates, ‘Don’t worry I’ll be back when it will be time for another nomination. I will be the first one there and maybe the only one. Now I know how it works and I will be prepared. I had my lesson.”A Liberal party spokesperson said 1,051 votes were cast in the nomination contest that included four candidates.NDP MP Jonathan Genest-Jourdain currently holds the firstname.lastname@example.org@JorgeBarrera
Rabat – A Hacking group known as “Anonymous” launched a series of cyber-attacks against Israeli websites on Monday.According to Israel national news, the group issued threats against Jews and Israel, calling for a massive cyber-attack against Israel.The same source said that hacking attempts have primarily been made from hackers in Morocco and Saudi Arabia. Anonymous launched the yearly #OpIsraelattack operation, but with limited access. The hackers threatened an “Electronic Holocaust” set for April 7th, one week before Holocaust Remembrance day in Israel.According to the group, the cyber-attack is meant to avenge Israel’s actions during Operation Protective Edge last summer on Gaza Strip.The hackers tried to take down servers, government websites, Israeli military websites, and Israeli institutions.However, the source said, the group has only managed so far to hack into singer Shalom Hanoch’s website and the website of the Israeli Center for Educational Excellence.Several attacks have also been launched against the Israel Airport Authority (AA), but with no success, the source added.

11 June 2008United Nations officials in Sudan have expressed their sorrow at last night’s plane crash at the international airport in the capital, Khartoum, that media reports say has killed at least 29 people. The Secretary-General’s Special Representative, Ashraf Jehangir Qazi, issued a statement today extending his deepest condolences to the Government and the Sudanese people following the accident.“The bereaved families are in our thoughts and prayers at this sad time,” said Mr. Qazi, who is also head of the UN Mission in Sudan (UNMIS).The hybrid UN-African Union peacekeeping force (UNAMID) operating in western Sudan’s Darfur region also released a similar statement from El Fasher, the mission headquarters.“Our thoughts and prayers at this time are with the families of those who have lost their loved ones and for those injured in this dreadful plane crash.”
Of the 2,914 children whom child protection services in Ituri district received during the Disarmament and Community Reintegration (DCR) process, 2,353 are boys, and 561 are girls, UNICEF said in a release.Before the DCR programme started last September, 337 boys and 62 girls arrived for protection, it said.”While the number of children who have left the armed forces and various armed groups has increased in Ituri, we are deeply concerned about the low numbers of girls who have been released,” UNICEF DRC Child Protection Officer Trish Hiddleston said.Noting that recruiting children for armed conflict violates international and Congolese law, UNICEF called on the armed groups to release all children and to allow them to resume their normal lives and their schooling.”Girls and boys are not only used for combat, but also for carrying arms, cooking, cleaning and other tasks. Often, girls and boys are also not only victims of daily psychological, verbal and physical violence, but also sexual violence which exposes them to HIV/AIDS, sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancy,” it said.When children could not immediately be reunified with their families, UNICEF and its child protection partners have taken care of them, providing such needs as civilian clothes and tracing their families.

This fall the startup plans to deploy trucks equipped with 56 ovens that can bake pizzas en route to customers, allowing them to deliver dozens of orders before returning to the kitchen.The company is trying to shorten delivery times with software to anticipate when and what kind of pizzas customers will order.Charity Suzuki regularly uses the Zume mobile app to order pizza. She isn’t bothered by the robot cooks.“It’s delicious. It’s always hot and fresh when it comes,” Suzuki said. “I can’t tell the difference that it’s made by a robot versus a human.”___Associated Press Video Journalist Haven Daley contributed to this report.

THE FORMER OWNER of the CityWest Hotel, Jim Mansfield, has died aged 75.Mansfield was one of Ireland’s most prominent and prolific businessmen during the Celtic Tiger, purchasing hotels, stately homes and an airport.He was one of the first Irish business leaders to buy a private jet, from his self-estimated €1.7 billion.Having left school at 14, Mansfield made his fortune in salvaging equipment and machinery from the Falklands War. This netted him £100 million in the early 80s.However, with the collapse of the economy, his empire crumbled and the jewel in the crown, the CityWest Hotel was sold for €30 million by NAMA.He is survived by his wife Anne and three sons Tony, Jimmy and PJ.Read: Want a private airport outside Dublin?

Montzerrat Pantoja can be a little bit of a pest when it comes to her family’s diet.Pantoja, a senior at Battle Ground High School, has a heavy interest in food science and nutrition, which has intersected with her family’s relationship to food.“My family, I kind of drive them crazy with, ‘Oh this is not healthy. Where’s our side of vegetables?’ I kind of get on their nerves,” Pantoja said. “It’s because I love them. I want them to be healthy.”While Pantoja might slightly irritate her family with healthy suggestions, the 18-year-old’s fascination with nutrition recently paid off in a big way. She was awarded a $5,000 scholarship from Kaiser Permanente that was created with the intent of diversifying the health care workforce. Since the scholarship’s inception in 2009, more than $4 million have been awarded to students, according to a Kaiser press release.“We are passionate about making health care equitable — it should be accessible and affordable for everyone, no matter their circumstances,” said Ruth Williams-Brinkley, president of Kaiser Foundation Health Plan and Hospitals of the Northwest. “A person’s language, race or ethnicity shouldn’t be a barrier to good care. … By creating a more diverse workforce, we can take a big step toward helping everyone in our communities live their longest, healthiest lives.”Pantoja lived the first seven years of her life in the United States, splitting time between California and Washington, before spending the next seven years in Mexico. She moved to Battle Ground at 15, and after a period of adjustment has adapted to high school life.
Newly appointed Reading manager Jose Gomes has been discussing his football philosophy during his first press conference as the club’s manager.Gomes who was appointed to replace the sacked Paul Clement faced the media on Monday and spoke about his intentions for the club.“I love football,” he told the club’s official website. “Ever since we are born and when we start playing football as kids, if you ask your friends to come and play football, the main idea is to score goals.”“And to score goals we must pass the ball to each other. That’s what I like, to pass the ball to each other and control the game with the ball with the intention of somehow obligating the opponent to move in trying to recover the ball and then creating space to use to our advantage with the fast players, the strikers.”Manchester United Joel Pereira set to join Reading Henry Ikenna Ugwu – January 10, 2019 Manchester United goalkeeper Joel Pereira is set to go loan to Reading after a six-month loan spell at Vitoria Setubal, according to Daily Mail.The…“Basically I like creating with the ball. And from everything I watch of our players, we have players with enough technical ability to play and follow my ideas. I have no doubt about that.”Speaking on the prospect of traveling to Old Trafford to face Manchester United in the FA Cup next month, Gomes said: “When I looked to the fixture schedule, I thought I could play against a Portuguese coach…but he left.”“But we are talking about one of the best clubs in the world with great players – it will be very difficult for us.”“However, it is usual that we have a different spirit in cup games. And anything can happen.”
Seward’s City Council has approved a plan aimed at using tidal energy to heat city buildings. If successful, the project could turn out to be the first ocean -sourced district heating system in the state. A resolution passed by the Seward City Council the evening before President Obama’s arrival is on-point with the president’s climate warming message. But assistant city manager Ron Long says it was not planned to go with the president’s visit.Download Audio:“Purely coincidental. It sure worked out well that is was picked up by news media in town, so we have a chance to tell our story to a little broader audience than we might have.”]Long says the city is planning to move away from the use of heating oil, while it attempts to create a renewable energy heating district in the city that would include four public buildings. The resolution approved Monday gave the go-ahead for seeking grant funding, and spending city funds, on the innovative project. Long says the plan is unique to Seward, because of the city’s location and because of the position of the buildings involved. The plan to use tidal forces to produce energy requires heat loops to be buried in gravel below the city’s waterfront.“While it is warmed by sea water, we don’t pump sea water, so we don’t have to deal with any of the corrosives, extra pumps, all those other pieces of a system that we might otherwise have to have.”The fluid in the loops absorbs heat from sea water according to Andy Baker, a consultant with Your Clean Energy, and energy auditing and consulting company.“Vertical loops that will be drilled into the deep gravel along their bike path, where the ocean tides are washing in and out twice a day.So the idea is that the loops would intercept the tidal water, the heat from the ocean water will go into the loops. The loops are part of one big closed loop that goes around and around in four different buildings. In each of those buildings are heat pumps. the heat pumps extract the heat from the loop.”Interestingly, Resurrection Bay water is warmest in the month of November, according to Baker, a fact that Baker says is fundamental to understanding why ocean heat is such a great resource for much of southeast and south central coastal Alaska. The North Pacific Ocean gyre starting at the Equator eventually brings warm water to the Alaska current which flows through Prince William Sound to the front of Resurrection Bay“And in October when they get the big rain storms here, fresh water flows out of Resurrection Bay and then draws in the deep sea water from the Alaska current. So it is sort of like a bathtub that fills up with hot water just before winter. ”Seward will apply for a Alaska Energy Authority Renewable Energy Fund grant of 850 thousand dollars and use 85 thousand dollars in city funds for the project. City officials estimate heating the library, city hall, a city annex and fire department with renewable energy will save the city up to $76,000 annually.Seward mayor Jean Bardarson says the city will apply for the grant this month.“And they are awarded in January. So we are looking forward to hopefully winning those fiances to funding that project in January.”The city’s proposed tidal energy project is different from the ocean water heating system used by the Alaska Sea Life Center in Seward. The Sea Life Center uses sea water pumped directly from the ocean then filtered and then pumped into a heat exchanger. Baker says the proposed city project requires no water pumping.

Kolkata: On a day BJP President Amit Shah is slated to address a public rally here, West Bengal’s ruling Trinamool Congress would hold rallies in the districts of the state on Saturday to raise its pitch against the publication of the draft of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam. The Trinamool has decided to leave out the metropolis from the programme, said its Secretary General Partha Chatterjee. Shah would address the rally on Mayo Road in the heart of the city.
