Category: wfdfymautuvzduuz Stricter advertising rules by Health Canada to reduce youth vaping

first_imgOTTAWA, ONT – Vaping in Canada has evolved rapidly and emerging evidence that the uptake of vaping by youth has Health Canada taking action.The Government is addressing the trend of youth and vaping with a proposal for additional advertising restrictions and a new public education campaign targeted at young people, announced Honourable Ginette Petitpas Taylor, Minister of Health.“I am deeply concerned about recent reports that youth vaping is on the rise. This includes stories coming out of schools across Canada, and emerging data suggesting that young Canadians are taking up vaping at an alarming rate. I am hearing from parents, educators and the health care community that they share my concerns about youth vaping. We cannot allow these products to threaten the hard-earned gains we’ve made in tobacco control. The proposed regulatory measures and our public awareness campaign will drive home the message: if you don’t smoke, don’t vape.” said The Honourable Ginette Petitpas Taylor Minister of Health Canada has a strong regulatory framework for vaping products in place through the Tobacco and Vaping Products Act, which prohibits advertising that appeals to youth. To further this, Health Canada has published a Notice of Intent outlining the Department’s plans for new advertising rules. The proposed rules would restrict where advertisements could be displayed to limit their visibility to young people. They would also require health warning messages on permitted advertisements, and would restrict the display of vaping products at points of sale.The Notice of Intent initiates a 45-day consultation period. Health Canada will consider the comments received through this consultation in the drafting of new proposed regulations. All Canadians are encouraged to provide their feedback on proposals to protect youth and non-smokers from the harms and risks associated with vaping products.As well as the Notice of Intent, Health Canada will post in March 2019 another consultation document seeking comments on further measures being considered to address and reverse the recent trends of youth vaping. Some of these additional measures could include examining the role of flavours, nicotine concentration and product design in making vaping products appealing to youth and non-smokers.Minister Petitpas Taylor has also engaged her provincial and territorial colleagues to further support federal efforts to address youth vaping. Health Canada continues to support the need to discourage youth and non-smokers from vaping while urging smokers to quit.This week is the official launch of the Government of Canada’s public education campaign raising awareness, particularly among youth, of the harms and risks of vaping. The campaign invites youth to consider the consequences of vaping and equips parents and other trusted adults with tools and resources to support conversations with teenagers about the health risks of vaping. The campaign will continue through 2019last_img read more

Category: wfdfymautuvzduuz Vans drive record registration growth – again

All time record of 35,952 registrations for the month.Growth of 10.0 per cent for June and 7.7 per cent for the year to June.Record rolling year total is 377,500 and still rising.Heavy vans took 79 per cent of June’s increase.Trucks up 2.2 per cent in June and 1.8 per cent for the year to June.Buses up 17.3 per cent, but down 14.5 per cent for the year to June.‘We’ve got all-time record commercial vehicle registrations in June, driven by vans and fuelled by the strongest economy in Europe,’ said Christopher Macgowan, chief executive at the SMMT. ‘CV registrations are a lead indicator of business and consumer demand, as both sectors rely on heavily on road transport for distribution and services. Whilst the momentum clearly comes from the heavy van sector, other vehicles show reassuringly steady and incremental growth.’‘There is room for further growth over the rest of the year as the general economic backdrop remains healthy. Interest rates are rising and this will temper further growth this year, but with business and consumer demand remaining healthy, the case for investing in new vehicles is a positive one, though a note of caution on the pace of growth over the second half of the year is appropriate,’ he concluded.For more comment and analysis please click on the link below.DownloadClick to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) read more

Category: wfdfymautuvzduuz Ohio State field hockey falls short in opening Labor Day weekend

Then-sophomore forward Peanut Johnson (3) advances the ball during a game against Indiana Oct. 26 at Buckeye Varsity Field. OSU lost, 6-5.Lantern file photoOhio State field hockey opened its 2014 campaign with a pair of tough losses against No. 5 Syracuse and unranked Albany.The Buckeyes hung tough with the Orange at home Friday, losing 3-2 in overtime following a fierce comeback. They couldn’t rebound Monday, however, as they were shutout, 4-0, on the road in Albany, N.Y.After trailing for most of the game Friday, the Buckeyes scored two goals within nine minutes to force overtime against the Orange. Syracuse junior forward Emma Russell then sealed the game with a shot from close range off a rebound in overtime.OSU appeared outmatched early, but managed to fight back late behind its veteran leadership.“I think the first half was our eye-opener,” senior midfielder Kaitlyn Wagner said. “But we’re a young team and realized we were getting bullied around.”The Buckeyes struggled to move the ball into scoring position in the first half when they were outshot 17-2 in the first 35 minutes of play.The majority of the action was played on OSU’s side of the field, but freshman goalkeeper Liz Tamburro kept her team alive in her debut, recording five first half saves, which allowed her teammates to strike back late.“She made some incredible saves, and every time a goalie makes a save like that, it gives the team a lot of confidence,” OSU coach Anne Wilkinson said. “As a freshman, that’s a lot to ask.”With 1:57 to play in the opening half, Tamburro’s shield finally cracked. Syracuse’s senior back Jordan Page broke free on the left side of the pitch and scored unassisted to give the Orange a 1-0 lead at halftime.Things changed in the second half when OSU went on the attack. Junior back Emma Royce said the team was determined to get to any ball in question during the second period.“We just decided that the 50-50 balls weren’t going to be 50-50 balls anymore,” Royce, a London native and team co-captain, said. “They were going to be our balls.”The Buckeyes trailed 2-0 after an early second half goal from Syracuse junior midfielder Alyssa Manley, but OSU countered quickly.Wagner scored on a penalty stroke after a Syracuse foul, and with more than 16 minutes to play, junior forward Peanut Johnson broke free and scored from seven yards out off a pass from freshman forward Maddy Humphrey.Tamburro finished the game with 11 saves, tying with the seventh most in single game school history since 2001. The Orange outshot the Buckeyes 37-11 overall, and had a 13-3 advantage in penalty corners.“Going into Albany, we need to attack more and dictate the tempo,” Wilkinson said after the loss.But the Buckeyes had no such luck, allowing two first half goals from Albany sophomore midfielder Paula Heuser and senior midfielder Amy Nicklin.Heuser converted on her second goal of the game in the second half, and freshman midfielder Anna Bottino scored on a fast break to cap the 4-0 shutout.The Buckeyes will try to pick up their first win of the season Friday when they’re scheduled to take on Miami (Ohio) at Buckeye Varsity Field at 5 p.m. read more

first_imgThis article was first published on 24 June 2013, on the 18th anniversary of the game. It is reproduced here as the world remembers Nelson Mandela (1918-2013)(YouTube: jaiarc)AS A GAME of rugby, it was dramatic enough in its own right.It was the All-Blacks. It was the Springboks. Extra time was required. There was a tournament-clinching drop goal.Add to that the importance that anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela had placed on South Africa hosting the Rugby World Cup and it became one of the most poignant and iconic crossover moments in sport and politics.A Sprinbok jersey-wearing President handing the the William Webb Ellis Trophy to winning captain Francois Pienaar created a historic and unprecedented moment in South Africa’s race struggle.In previous years, the Spingbok had been a symbol of white, apartheid rule. There had been blacks-only pens at stadiums – but those who attended always cheered on the Springboks’ opponents. Always, no exceptions. Until Madiba said different.A special moment then when Pienaar said of the country’s support of the team in a post-match interview: “We didn’t have 60,000 South Africans, we had 43 million South Africans.”Today, the rainbow nation remembers a man with who turned his vision – that “the Boks belonged to all of us” – into a sustainable and lasting reality.First published 24 June 2013Nelson Mandela’s condition ‘has become critical’ in the past 24 hoursNelson Mandela’s ambulance broke down on way to hospitallast_img read more

Category: wfdfymautuvzduuz Coast Guard hears CRC objections from projects critics

first_imgWednesday’s Coast Guard meeting begins at 5 p.m. in the Hilton Vancouver Washington, 301 W. Sixth St.CRC reaches mitigation deal with two manufacturersThe federal agency that essentially holds veto power over the Columbia River Crossing opened its ear to Portland and Vancouver residents Tuesday, and most who spoke called for a rejection of the controversial megaproject.In the first of two hearings hosted by the U.S. Coast Guard, much of the testimony focused on the proposed Interstate 5 Bridge replacement’s planned 116-foot bridge height, a clearance more than 60 feet lower than the existing twin drawbridges allow over the Columbia River. The $3.4 billion project would permanently limit navigation on the river, and limit future development and commerce upstream of the new span, opponents said.The CRC as planned “literally cuts this river in half,” said William “Chris” Girard, president of Plaid Pantry convenience stores and a CRC critic.The Coast Guard is mulling whether to approve a crucial bridge permit the CRC must have to move forward. The project filed its bridge permit application in January. Told by the Coast Guard that they hadn’t submitted enough information, CRC officials sent additional documents in April.Coast Guard officials have said their job is to protect the “reasonable needs” of navigation on the Columbia River. The agency is aiming to make its decision on the CRC by Sept. 30.last_img read more

Category: wfdfymautuvzduuz MALDEF Argues SB 4 Is Improper Entry By Texas In Immigration Enforcement

first_imgErika Rich for The Texas TribunePeople that opposed Senate Bill 4 (SB 4), the so-called ‘sanctuary cities’ bill, protested during the last day of the Texas legislative session on May 29, 2017.The Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) will argue that Texas’ SB 4 represents an “improper entry” by the state in the realm of immigration enforcement and that it can potentially violate the First and Fourth amendments of the United States Constitution during an upcoming hearing on a preliminary injunction that has blocked key provisions of the law.That is what Nina Perales, MALDEF’s vice president of Litigation, noted Tuesday during a press briefing about the hearing, which will be held by a panel of three judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, which is based in New Orleans.Specifically, the panel will consider the merits of a preliminary injunction issued on August 30th by Judge Orlando Garcia, of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas.Garcia’s injunction blocked the implementation of key parts of SB 4, including the authority for local police officers to act as immigration officers, a mandate for local jails to honor extended detention requests, known as detainers, issued by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and restrictions on the free speech of local officials.Perales noted that MALDEF considers that “SB 4 represents an improper entry by the State of Texas into the federal area of immigration and immigration enforcement and the Constitution prohibits entering into areas that are fully occupied by the federal government.”Regarding the potential violation of the First Amendment, which guarantees freedom of expression, Perales indicated that “SB 4 prohibits public actors, employees, elected officials, from speaking out against SB 4.”Perales added SB 4 has the potential to violate the Fourth Amendment, which protects from unreasonable searches and seizures, in the sense that “SB 4’s mandatory detainer provisions could force counties primarily, which are the ones with jails, to violate people’s fourth amendment rights when they would have to honor every request by the federal government to hold on to an individual, even after that individual had posted bond.”The hearing is scheduled to take place on November 7th.

Category: wfdfymautuvzduuz TSA Preps for Insane New Travel Restrictions

first_imgTraveling via plane sucks. Part of that is the security. It’s degrading and awful and about to get a lot worse. The TSA has been testing out some new regulations in a few airports that will make your life shittier without much-added security.Recently airport security has been asking passengers to remove a few extra things from their bags for more careful screening. These have quite famously included everything from electronics to books. Ostensibly, the issue is that baggage check fees are encouraging passengers to cram their carry-ons with as much as they can, and that’s making it tougher for the TSA to actually see what’s in your bags — with more layers to sift through, the images officers see are a lot more confusing. By taking some of these things out, officers can get a cleaner picture of each item on its own, and give all of them a bit more attention.The problem here is twofold — at some point, there has to be a limit on the extra hoops we have to leap through in order to board a plane. At some point, one would think, the additional work would be so much as to make the whole thing impractical. Right? Flying may be a luxury for many, but it’s a vital piece of quite a few jobs as well. And not just luxurious ones. It’s a vital leg of our infrastructure, and there needs to be some fundamental limit to how much we allow it to be mucked with. Like with everything, there’s a balance to find. As a society, the US is comfortable, for example, with a few thousands more highway deaths a year in exchange for higher speed limits. If we want to be more secure, fine, but we need to collectively find a point where the buck stops. That may be further than where we’re at, or a ways back, but that’s a spot we need to collectively find and assert.But… of course, all this only works under the assumption that any of these screenings actually help. They don’t. There’s a lot of data out there to back this, too. In a 2015 test by the Department of Homeland Security (the folks that manage the TSA), security failed 95% of tests including ones for mock explosives and weapons. Ninety-five. Percent.It’s easy to get spooked by the recent uptick of terrorist attacks, and the memories of 9/11 still haunt many of us. But that cannot allow us to hop onto irrationality. That’s not the geek way. We rule lawyer. We obsess over the details. We sift through enormous, expansive continuities and find the five inaccuracies that matter to absolutely no one but us. Well… these do matter. To a lot of people.Checked baggage prices (the alleged root cause of this problem) are only high because airlines have figured out how to makes tons of extra money. They say it’s to cover expenses, and that was once true, but as this fellow explains, that’s no longer the case. We can expect these changes to reduce productivity, though. Longer lines means more missed flights and lower efficiency all-around. That drives up prices. Airlines who will surely want to keep profit margins comfortably large may drive up luggage fees again, exacerbating the root problem.Right now these extra screenings are only in a few cities. But they will likely expand soon. There was some rumbling last month that the US would begin restricting laptops on flights from Europe, but DHS Secretary John Kelly is suggesting that not only will these test restrictions “likely” expand to every airport soon, but that he’s considering a ban on larger electronics aboard US-bound from anywhere in the world. This is on top of new pat-down procedures that many have already described as invasive. All of this could make the life of airplane gamers or anyone who wants to watch something other than the shitty crop of movies the seatback “entertainment system” has may soon be in for some… turbulence.Sorry, I know that’s a bad pun, but this situation sucks, and I thought it’d help a little. Long story short — the TSA is awful and invasive, their security is based on theatrics that doesn’t help us stay safe, and it’s all about to get a lot worse. At least puppies exist.last_img read more

first_imgWhere Colin was WrongThe Atlanta Falcons – Colin didn’t buy the Falcons for most of the year, and picked them to go 7-9 in his NFL preseason predictions. He didn’t think Matty Ice could play at the MVP level that he has this season, and the defense had been below average.But, Ryan is playing the best football of his career with Kyle Shanahan, and head coach Dan Quinn has done a nice job shaping up the defense into respectability. The Falcons are on fire at the right time and headed for Houston. Colin was wrong.FUMBLE!

Colin was quick to pour cold water on the high expectations, and pointed out that the Lakers have a bunch of “C” and “B” young players, but no “A’s.” Since their relatively hot start, the Lakers have been a disaster.L.A. is 16-32, and last night they lost by 40 to the Mavericks. Brandon Ingram looks like he might have all-star potential, but he’s three years away from being physically ready to compete. The Lakers aren’t close. They’re not even close to being close.

After yesterday’s domination of the Steelers, Colin has come to the several conclusions: 1.) They are excellent against the run; 2.)  Their corners are underrated; 3.) They don’t miss tackles. Belichick’s ability to game plan to eliminate the opposing team’s best player doesn’t hurt either.

He may have called him “Andy Dalton in a warmer climate.” Colin was wrong. Over the previous three seasons, he only had 75 touchdowns passes, against 47 interceptions, and had looked average. In his second year with offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, Ryan has taken his game way past the ceiling Colin thought he had.  The Falcons are rolling, and Ryan is an MVP candidate.

Even though he picked the Falcons to beat the Packers this weekend, he was wrong on Atlanta and Matt Ryan this year.Here’s all the right and the wrong from an NFL Conference Championship weekend: Where Colin was RightDiva wide receivers are overrated – Pittsburgh got housed in the wake of the week-long Antonio Brown Facebook Live locker room media feeding frenzy. Colin thinks the negative impact of the story was predictable, and it’s the latest incident to prove his theory that diva wide receivers are an overvalued commodity in the NFL.It’s a quarterback league, and wide receivers are hood ornaments. The best receiver on the field in the AFC Championship Game wasn’t  Brown, it was Chris Hogan out of Monmouth. Why was he great? Brady. Colin was right. Advertisement Where Colin was RightBlazin’ 5 was 2-0 – Colin rarely takes favorites when he bets the NFL, but he went with both home favorites in the conference championship games. Both easily covered. Aaron Rodgers’ magic ran out in Atlanta, allowing the Falcons to cover the 5, and Tom Brady and the Pats shut down the Steelers to cover the 6 in Foxboro.

This matter serves no one by being debated in the public domain.“All structures of the municipality, including the community, should not enter the fray, as they contribute to the speculation, which promotes general confusion and the perception that the mayor is guilty. “The municipality has a responsibility to safeguard community interests by dealing with this matter away from the public glare.”Communications Manager Siyabonga Maphalala further stated that they are not sure whether these allegations are politically motivated in terms of somebody in council trying to bring down the mayor, or whether they serve a purpose of destroying his image as the mayor of Alfred Duma Municipality.DID YOU KNOW?Click on the words highlighted in red to read more on this and related topics.If you are reading this on your cellphone and there are telephone numbers provided in the text, you can call these simply by clicking on them.To receive news links via WhatsApp.For the latest news, visit our webpage or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

Category: wfdfymautuvzduuz And whats the overall feedback on The Private Sui

first_imgAnd what’s the overall feedback on The Private Suite at LAX?The facility has had a tremendous response and we have had a lot of enquiries from Australian travel advisors who have clientele wanting to book this VIP experience. There are now also deals to book the Private Suite in conjunction with both American Airlines and United airfares. Is there a particular audience or demographic that Los Angeles appeals to most?In LA everyone is welcome and with the US being the top long-haul destination for Australians we do see travellers from all age groups and demographics. What are your recommended five essential luxury elements advisors should incorporate into a stopover package to LAA private guided hike through the Hollywood Hills with Bikes and Hikes L.A. is a great way to dust off the jet lag and experience LA’s great weather and eye off the luxury real estate.Experience one of LA’s many great museums and galleries (LA has more than any other US city). My suggestion is to book your clients a timed ticket for The Broad gallery in Downtown, so they can walk straight in and avoid the queues. Also of note is the Academy Museum opening later this year.If your client has been to LA before suggest to them a different neighbourhood to stay in and see what new hotels are opening. We actually have over 30 new properties opening in the next few years and many of [them] are in the 4.5–5-star category. In 2019-2020 look out for the Fairmont Century Plaza and the Hoxton Los Angeles.A self-drive holiday is one of the most popular trip styles for Australian travellers wanting to see the state of California and LA’s iconic drives, such as the Pacific Coast Highway, from start to finish. I suggest doing it in style with a luxury vehicle from Black & White Car Rentals who have over 20 luxury brand cars to choose from.Los Angeles has one of the most dynamic dining scenes in the US, offering everything from street food to Michelin-starred restaurants. Whether it’s a sleek, modern dining room or a casual oceanfront patio, diners can choose from an astonishing menu of global cuisines. Our website is constantly updated with great new dining options to experience. How are the updates at LAX improving the experience for travellers moving between and within terminals?LAX has also spent over 14 billion US dollars in the last few years to redevelop the airport experience and the feedback we are hearing from travel agents and their clients has been really positive, especially since the opening of the Terminal 4 connector from the Tom Bradley terminal, which has made transiting at LAX a lot easier.Coming soon and now under construction is the LAX automated people mover (monorail), which once completed will connect all 9 LAX terminals and car rental pick up/drop facilities. This will be a huge game changer for LAX. Go back to the enewsletterCraig Gibbons is Regional Director Australia & New Zealand for Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board and is based in Sydney, Australia.Prior to joining Los Angeles Tourism in 2012, Craig held marketing and sales positions in both Australia and the UK with leading travel and tourism entities including Visit Britain, the Indonesian Ministry of Tourism, NYC & Company, Adventure World Travel and Qantas. Why do you think Los Angeles is a crucial hub for Australian travellers heading to the USA?Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) continues to be the best gateway into North America for Australian travellers and that’s down to a few reasons, with the main one being that LAX has more direct flights from Australia than any other US airport. This also makes Australia to LAX the most competitively priced airfare into the United States, with a choice of five direct carriers.Combine all of that with the fact that LAX is still the only US airport to have a Qantas First and Business Class Lounge and you can see why there are so many Australian travellers choosing to start and finish their US trip in Los Angeles.center_img What’s the appeal of Los Angeles for high-end travellers from Australia?Los Angeles really sets the benchmark on what modern luxury travel is all about and a big part of the city’s appeal is down to the power of Hollywood and LA being the capital of the entertainment industry.I can’t tell you how many times our office in Sydney receives emails from travel agents asking, “My client has seen Chateau Marmont in a movie and wants to stay there” or “my client just saw this rooftop pool at the Dream on a reality star’s Instagram. How do I book this?’’.Quite often the Los Angeles portion of a client’s US trip will be the luxury sector with their clients really wanting to experience a stay at one of our many famous hotels that are, in some ways, a destination within themselves. What’s happening in Los Angeles that’s luring more tourists downtown?Downtown LA is experiencing one of the largest urban renewals in the United States, with many Angelenos moving back into this part of the city. The area is also home to a great variety of attractions such as the L.A. Live entertainment complex, home to the Lakers, Kings and Clippers at the Staples Center and award shows such as the American Music Awards and the Emmys.This trend has also seen a major increase of luxury hotels opening up in the neighbourhood in many of the historic buildings such the ACE Hotel Downtown, NoMad Los Angeles – which just became a Virtuoso member hotel – and just recently Hotel Figueroa, a Leading Hotels of the World property opened too. How long do most Australians tend to transit in Los Angeles before heading onwards to another North American destination?The average stopover in LA is two to three days. It really helps that LAX is located centrally on the beach between Marina del Rey and Manhattan Beach with so many great hotel options nearby.My current favourite luxury hotel in the area is The Beach House at Hermosa Beach and Terranea at Palos Verdes, which is LA’s only oceanfront resort and a Virtuoso hotel member.For those looking for a quick stopover close to the airport for an early-morning flight, you can’t go past Marina del Rey, which is just 10 minutes away from LAX with a great variety of hotels overlooking the marina such as the Ritz Carlton and the Marina del Rey Hotel. How can travel advisors learn more about Los Angeles and become specialists?That’s easy, simply go to insider.discoverlosangeles.com and become an L.A. Insider. It’s one of the best online training tools for travel advisors out there and only takes 30 minutes to complete.Go back to the enewsletterlast_img read more
