Heres a quick glance at unemployment rates for April by Canadian city

first_imgOTTAWA – The national unemployment rate was 5.8 per cent in April. Statistics Canada also released seasonally adjusted, three-month moving average unemployment rates for major cities. It cautions, however, that the figures may fluctuate widely because they are based on small statistical samples. Here are the jobless rates last month by city (numbers from the previous month in brackets):— St. John’s, N.L. 8.6 per cent (8.6)— Halifax 5.6 (6.0)— Moncton, N.B. 5.7 (5.7)— Saint John, N.B. 6.5 (6.9)— Saguenay, Que. 5.8 (5.6)— Quebec 3.7 (3.6)— Sherbrooke, Que. 5.5 (5.7)— Trois-Rivieres, Que. 5.5 (5.4)— Montreal 6.1 (6.1)— Gatineau, Que. 4.8 (4.7)— Ottawa 4.2 (4.9)— Kingston, Ont. 4.9 (5.4)— Peterborough, Ont. 3.8 (4.8)— Oshawa, Ont. 4.4 (4.5)— Toronto 5.9 (5.8)— Hamilton, Ont. 5.3 (5.3)— St. Catharines-Niagara, Ont. 5.8 (5.6)— Kitchener-Cambridge-Waterloo, Ont. 5.4 (5.1)— Brantford, Ont. 7.2 (6.7)— Guelph, Ont. 4.8 (4.9)— London, Ont. 5.7 (6.3)— Windsor, Ont. 5.5 (5.2)— Barrie, Ont. 8.4 (8.8)— Sudbury, Ont. 7.2 (6.8)— Thunder Bay, Ont. 5.1 (5.1)— Winnipeg 6.5 (6.3)— Regina 5.7 (5.0)— Saskatoon 6.7 (6.5)— Calgary 8.0 (8.2)— Edmonton 6.6 (6.7)— Kelowna, B.C. 4.8 (5.2)— Abbotsford, B.C. 4.4 (4.0)— Vancouver 4.1 (4.0)— Victoria 4.2 (4.5)last_img read more

Audit Manitoba chiefs organization used training child care dollars to cover debts

first_img(Former Manitoba Keewatinowi Okimakanak grand chief David Harper faced multiple audits while in charge of the organization.)Jorge Barrera APTN National NewsA Manitoba chiefs organization representing some of the poorest First Nations in the country used over $1 million in training and child care funds destined for member bands to pay off its debts, according to a federally-commissioned audit obtained by APTN National News.The KPMG audit of Manitoba Keewatinowi Okimakanak focused on the organization’s use of training and child care funds flowing from Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) during the tenure of former grand chief David Harper who was beset by financial scandal during his last days in office.Indigenous Affairs and ESDC commissioned KPMG to conduct two audits of MKO in 2014 following complaints and reports about Harper’s handling of MKO’s finances. The audits focused on transactions between 2011 and 2014.A KPMG audit specifically targeting MKO’s use of ESDC’s funds under the Aboriginal Skills and Employment Training Strategy (ASETS) program found that $1.16 million of total allocated dollars never made it to MKO’s 30 member communities for training and child care.The audit found that between 2011 and 2014 MKO reported a deficit of $1.6 million.“MKO’s deficits have been largely funded with funds from the ASETS program intended for the various First Nations who are sub-agreement holders,” said the 2015 audit, which has been kept under wraps until now.In addition to owing $1.16 million to its member First Nations, the audit found MKO “has no cash reserves and no current ability to repay these amounts.”The audit found that MKO, at the time, did not have the ability to properly manage ASETS dollars earmarked for child care and training totalling about $65 million between 2011 and 2014.“MKO does not have the capacity to manage nor provide oversight of the ASETS program unless significant changes are made,” said the audit. “There is little evidence of oversight, tracking of funds or reconciliation.”ESDC said in a statement Thursday that ASETS dollars continue to flow to MKO and the department is working with the organization to improve its oversight.“ESDC continues to work with MKO to ensure that its financial administration system supports the accountability and tracking required of the program,” said the statement. “This work is ongoing to ensure that there is a strong organization in place to provide training and employment services to indigenous clients in northern Manitoba.”A second but linked audit, examining how MKO under Harper managed and spent its money, has also been completed and may be handed over to the RCMP by current MKO Grand Chief Sheila North Wilson, according to a recent report in the Winnipeg Free Press.North Wilson could not be reached for comment.APTN previously reported on a draft copy of the second audit which examined about $450,000 worth of expenses incurred by Harper and determined just over one-third could be substantiated. The draft audit also discovered that about $77,000 worth of travel claims filed by Harper did not match-up when cross-referenced with the former grand chief’s records.APTN has since learned that MKO, under Harper, flowed ASETS dollars into its general revenue account. It appears these funds were used for loans to member chiefs and travel, among other expenses.ASETS dollars were used to fund a training retreat at a posh Banff, Alta., hotel in 2012, APTN has learned. At the time Harper told the media the trip, which cost tens of thousands of dollars, was paid for by MKO’s own-source revenues. APTN has learned officials in Harper’s office retroactively altered documentation to cover the financial link between the Banff trip and ASETS dollars.APTN has also obtained a $5,000 loan agreement between MKO and St. Theresa Point Chief David McDougall. The agreement was signed by former MKO financial officer Glen Buchko and flowed the loan through MKO’s economic development corporation, Wabung Development, and was issued against future ASETS dollars owed to St. Theresa Point.“The recipient agrees to pay $1,106.40 monthly,” said the contract. “In the situation where the amount is not received…the recipient agrees to have deducted from any advances owning under the ASETS program the full balance of the advance.”McDougall could not be reached for comment.A previous audit found MKO paid Buchko $1.1 million between 2005 and 2011.Harper could not be reached for comment.jbarrera@aptn.ca@JorgeBarreralast_img read more

Sri Lanka rejects Chinese request for local fuel sales

For the moment, the Chinese source said, the refinery deal was going forward.The two Chinese firms began exploring the possibility of building the refinery 18 months ago, and private refiner Dongming is looking to take a controlling stake, officials from the companies said. China Huanqiu Contracting & Engineering Corp, a subsidiary of state-owned China National Petroleum Corp, and private refiner Shandong Dongming Petrochemical Group have jointly bid for the refinery located near the port. Government spokesman Rajitha Senaratne said the Chinese companies had asked to sell refined products on to the local market, but had been told just to export. Sri Lanka has blocked a proposal by Chinese firms bidding to build the island’s biggest oil refinery to sell fuel locally, fearing a threat to domestic firms that dominate the small but growing market, the Reuters news agency reported.The veto is the latest in a tussle over Chinese investments in Hambantota, a southern town near an important shipping route, where China controls the sea port and plans an industrial zone for Chinese firms and a $3 billion refinery with annual output of around 5 million tonnes. Sri Lanka’s $6 billion market is controlled by state-run Ceylon Petroleum Corp and Lanka IOC LIOC.CM, a subsidiary of Indian Oil Corp (IOC.NS).“We have asked the Chinese firms to go for partnership with existing players if they want to sell their products in the local market,” the official said. “We don’t want both our companies to suffer by letting another player in.”The two Chinese companies seeking local market access did not respond to a Reuters request for comment. “The Chinese companies asked permission (to supply local markets), but we did not give them permission. We asked them to participate in tenders of local suppliers, if they want to sell locally,” he told Reuters.Another government official, who didn’t want to be named as he is not authorized to speak to the media, said Sri Lanka did not want to cede control of the local fuel market to Chinese firms. Hambantota is part of China’s vast Belt and Road initiative to build trade and transport links across Asia and into Europe, but Beijing’s widening footprint has raised concerns in India, the United States and even Europe. New Delhi sees the massive investment in the port town as another sign of the threat of China’s growing influence in the region. Even in Sri Lanka, the plan has been criticized for the loss of land and, more broadly, the tiny nation’s sovereignty.This year, Sri Lanka revised the terms of its deal with China Merchants Port Holdings (0144.HK), which has a 99-year lease on the Hambantota port, to give greater influence to a local state-run partner.A Chinese source in Colombo briefed on the refinery discussions said the two Chinese firms had made an informal request for the refinery’s products to be sold locally, but had been told by the Sri Lankan authorities that such a move could spark demonstrations by local trade unions. read more

SriLankan Airlines employees agree to restructuring moves

All trade unions attached to SriLankan Airlines have expressed their solidarity to the management of the Airline, in supporting the restructuring efforts initiated by the Government under the supervision of the Public Private Partnership (PPP) unit attached to the Ministry of Finance, SriLankan Airlines said today.This was expressed by the representatives of the trade unions when they met the Chairman SriLankan Ajith Dias, CEO Capt. Suren Ratwatte together with senior management of the airline and the Chairman, National Agency for the Public Private Partnership, Thilan Wijesinghe. The securing of the future of the national carrier was acknowledged to be of paramount importance, irrespective of the professional or political affiliations of the unions. Accordingly, the Government had set up a special Ministerial Committee headed by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, Minister of Finance and Mass Media Mangala Samaraweera, Minister of Special Assignments (Dr.) Sarath Amunugama, Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation Nimal Siripala de Silva, Minister of Public Enterprise Development Kabir Hashim,and Minister of Development Strategies and International Trade Malik Samarawickrama.The Ministerial Committee is assisted by an Officials Committee headed by the Secretary to the Treasury Dr. R. H. S. Samaratunga, and consists of Secretary to the Ministry of Public Enterprise Development Ravindra Hewavitharana, Chairman of the National Agency for Public Private Partnership (Convenor) Thilan Wijesinghe, Senior Advisor to the Ministry of Finance and Mass Media Mano Tittawella, Director to the  Ministry of Public Enterprise Development Dr. Roshan Perera and the Chairman and the Chief Executive Officer of SriLankan Airlines. At the meeting, the representatives of the trade unions comprising The Airline Pilots Guild, Flight Attendant Union (FAU), Licensed Aircraft Engineers, Technicians, Executive Association, SLNS, JSS and the Engineers Guild expressed their fullest support to the management on its restructuring efforts. At the meeting,the Chairman SriLankan Airlines outlined the present financial status of the Airline and how the accumulated liabilities of the Airline is making an adverse impact on the country’s economy.He also explained that the government restructuring initiatives are led by the PPP Unit of the Ministry of Finance with the help of the consultants from the aviation industry. read more

The Jaguars Scored 51 Points Blake Bortles Had Practically Nothing To Do

Since 2006, Bortles’s QBR was easily the worst by the QB on a team that scored at least 50 points. Or 45. Or even 40. Among teams scoring 30 or more points, only Eli Manning’s microscopic 0.2 QBR in this 38-21 win against the Buffalo Bills was worse. (Naturally, Eli followed up that stinker with a near-upset of the 15-0 New England Patriots and then won four straight games, including the Super Bowl.) The average sub-5.0-QBR game yields a shade under 9.9 points. Overcoming that kind of performance, much less stacking another 40 points of production on top of it, requires something remarkable.In Manning’s case, it was two long rushing touchdowns and two defensive touchdowns. For Jacksonville, it was a couple of return touchdowns — a fumble and a punt — plus a dangerous Bortles pass to Allen Hurns that was nearly intercepted but instead turned into an 80-yard touchdown. The latter was likely scored as a bad pass despite its good result, which is one of the selling points for QBR — that its individual inputs and charting make it a better representation of play than traditional QB rating (which put Bortles at 114.6). But then, the black-box mechanics of QBR can also lead to wacky results; the formula, with all its credit-splitting and other arcana, undeniably makes more sense on a season-long scale than in single games.Even so, outliers as extreme as Bortles’s win don’t come along every week — or every decade. Fifty-point games are rare, but ones in which the quarterback is so immaterial to the product are all but non-existent. Fifty-point outings are pretty rare in the NFL. When teams do break the half-century barrier, it’s usually the result of an exceptional individual performance; in 26 of the NFL’s 36 50-point games since 2006,1The first season for which TruMedia has game-by-game Total QBR data. the high-scoring team’s primary passer2Meaning the QB who attempted the most passes for the team in the game. posted a score of 90 or better on Total QBR’s 0-to-100 scale, where 50 is average.Only twice in the past decade has a team dropped 50 or more on an opponent despite its quarterback having a QBR below league average. The first was a mediocre Jay Cutler game from 2012, in which Cutler had a QBR of 43.8 — not horrendous, though also not what you think of when you envision a 50-point offensive outburst. The second happened Sunday, in the Jacksonville Jaguars’ out-of-nowhere 51-16 romp over the tailspinning Indianapolis Colts. Because, despite his team’s huge scoring output, Jags QB Blake Bortles posted an impossibly low 3.8 QBR for the game: read more

On this week’s show (Dec. 29, 2015), we bring you the latest edition of “Stat School.” Last time, Statman, aka Neil Paine, talked to us about NFL running back stats. This week, he brings us basketball 101. Neil guides us through three hoop-centric stats: points per game, true shooting percentage and usage rate.Stat one: Points per gameA player’s average number of points scored per game played.Stat two: True shooting percentageA statistic used to gauge scoring efficiency that takes into consideration a player’s shot attempts (including field goals and free throws) and points scored. The result is the average points the player scored when he ended a possession by shooting.Stat three: Usage percentageA metric that estimates the percentage of a team’s possessions that a player “uses” while he is in the game. As players “use” more possessions, their overall efficiency tends to drop.Stream the episode by clicking the play button, or subscribe using one of the podcast clients we’ve linked to above.

This Eastern Conference Crown Is Truly LeBrons Masterpiece

This is LeBron’s worst NBA Finals supporting cast everBox Plus/Minus talent ratings for LeBron James and his cumulative teammates for NBA Finals teams, weighted by postseason minutes James was his usual otherworldly self on Sunday, of course, pouring in 35 points with 15 rebounds and 9 assists. (He also played every single minute of the game.) He remains the NBA’s all-time leader with 34.9 career PPG in postseason Game 7s. But unlike many of Cleveland’s playoff losses, he got a little bit of help from his teammates; in addition to James, three other Cavs (Jeff Green, J.R. Smith and Tristan Thompson) scored in double-figures. It was enough to propel the Cavs to victory, even though the team shot just 26 percent from 3-point range — which tends to be the most important barometer of Cleveland’s performance in any given game.At the same time, the Celtics appeared to be a bit too inexperienced to close out the veteran Cavs in a situation where playoff seasoning matters a lot. Had the Celtics won, they’d have been the second-youngest team2According to the average age of the postseason roster, weighted by minutes. to make the Finals since 1974 (older than only the 1977 Portland Trail Blazers). Instead, Boston’s youth showed as the Celtics were a team-worst -20 with star rookie Jayson Tatum and second-year phenom Jaylen Brown on the court together, and fill-in starter Terry Rozier suffered his worst game of the playoffs in Game 7.Fortunately for the Celtics, though, they have a ton of talent on hand for the future. This is only the beginning of something special for coach Brad Stevens’ squad. For Cleveland, meanwhile, this season has felt like the end of something special practically all year.Between the failed Isaiah Thomas trade, coach Ty Lue’s leave of absence, multiple injuries to Love and a midseason shakeup that ended up yielding few impact players for the postseason, it has been a chaotic ride for the Cavaliers. “We’ve had four or five seasons wrapped in one,” James told reporters earlier this month. “We know what the narrative has been about our team.” Unlike past seasons when the Cavs breezed through the East playoffs with seldom a loss, Cleveland was pushed to the limit by both the Celtics and the Indiana Pacers in the playoffs.3Granted, they did sweep the Toronto Raptors in between. Nothing has been easy.All things considered, then, this NBA Finals run has to be considered one of James’ crowning achievements. Although James talked up his supporting cast in his postgame comments, I went back and re-ran the numbers from this story, in which we used Basketball-Reference’s Box Plus/Minus to estimate the true talent4Using a multi-year weighted average of BPM, regressed to the mean and adjusted for age. of every player LeBron played with on an NBA Finals run. And that method says that this is easily the worst crop of teammates James has ever dragged to an NBA Finals — even worse than the one he had while being swept by the San Antonio Spurs as a 22-year-old in 2007: Game 7 loss88.289.447.817.973.720.4 Home wins95.6107.749.6%34.0%87.5%23.9 Boston won Games 1, 2 and 5 at home before losing Game 7.Source: NBA Advanced Stats 2013MIA+7.9+2.3+10.2+0.9+0.8+1.7 2017CLE+6.0+1.6+7.6+3.0-2.0+1.1 GamesPaceOff.

But what else is new? Much of James’ poor NBA Finals record (he’s 3-5 all-time in championship series) is because he’s gone into the matchup facing such long odds in the first place. That’s a direct product of his ability to carry shorthanded teams deeper into the playoffs than any other player would be able to — and in Sunday night’s win, James just provided the best example of that yet.Check out our latest NBA predictions. LeBron James has racked up some pretty extraordinary accomplishments in his 15-year pro career, but few are as impressive as his effort in leading this particular Cleveland Cavaliers squad to the NBA Finals. Missing an All-Star teammate from an already underwhelming supporting cast, on the road against a Boston Celtics team that had been 10-0 at home in the playoffs, in a Game 7 (where the home team was 104–26 in postseason history1Per the Elias Sports Bureau.), James had a lot standing between him and an eighth straight Finals trip. And yet, here he and the Cavs are once again, set to play for another NBA title, following Sunday’s 87-79 win in Boston.How’d Cleveland break Boston’s home-court stranglehold on these playoffs? For one thing, the much-maligned Cavaliers defense stepped up in a big way in Game 7, holding the Celtics to a stunningly low 89.4 points per 100 possessions after allowing 107.7 in the series’ previous three games at TD Garden. It helped that the Celtics bricked so many shots in the second half — they went 3-20 from 3-point range, including a number of open looks — but the Cavs also clamped down and played some of their best defense of the season during Game 7. Ratings are generated using a multi-year weighted average of BPM, regressed to the mean and adjusted for age.

House passes fasttrack bill to keep ferries and Medicaid funded through spring

first_imgRep. Paul Seaton, R-Homer, speaks on the House floor in April 2017. On Monday, Seaton supported the fast-track supplemental bill. (Photo by Skip Gray/360 North)The House Monday passed an extra funding bill to allow the state to make Medicaid payments to hospitals and the Alaska Marine Highway System to operate through the spring.Listen nowHouse Bill 321 is known as the “fast-track supplemental.”It would appropriate $110 million. That includes $45 million the House added in an amendment Monday to pay for Medicaid. Hospital advocates have expressed concern that some small hospitals wouldn’t be able to pay their bills if the Legislature doesn’t pass the Medicaid funding.Homer Republican Rep. Paul Seaton said the state made a commitment to those providers.“That’s why this $45 million is in the budget now,” Seaton said, who caucuses with mostly Democratic majority. “And that is, you know, probably our responsibility, if we have statutory requirements that providers provide services, that we make the payments.”Eagle River Republican Lora Reinbold, who is in the Republican minority caucus, opposed the amendment to fund Medicaid and the overall bill. She noted the large number of Alaskans enrolled in Medicaid. There are 200,000 in Medicaid and Denali KidCare.“Now they’re dependent on a government that is growing out of control,” she said. “We have a recession going on and every dollar that we spend – every single dollar that we spend, whether it’s federal or state dollars – comes out of the private sector. And a lot of the private sector people can’t afford health insurance.”The bill also includes $24 million for the ferry system and $18 million for the Department of Corrections.The House voted 32 to 7 on the bill. All of the no votes were cast by representatives from Matanuska-Susitna Borough or Eagle River. It now heads to the Senate.last_img read more

Teachers Gear Up For A New Kind Of Ninth Grade

first_img 00:00 /04:00 X Share Listen This summer, biology teacher Christian Johnson has worked so much, it almost doesn’t feel like a break.Early in the morning, she leads a dozen cheerleaders in their drill practice. And Johnson herself has been studying up.The subject: How to teach in a new way, so that her future freshmen learn in a deeper, more personalized way. Think of the instructor stepping away from the lecture podium and being more hands-on.Her campus at Furr High School is gearing up to launch a new kind of ninth grade. It’s part of how Furr, which used to have a reputation for drop-outs and gang violence, is trying to transform high school, with the help of a $10 million grant.“This is the expectation way up here,” Johnson said. “It’s going to be a lot, so I got to get myself prepared for it.”At one recent workshop, she joined half a dozen other ninth grade instructors in the campus coffee house. They brainstormed for the new ninth grade, thinking about how to give students more ownership in the curriculum and testing.Consultant Anna Hall, who has helped launch new kinds of high schools around the country, led the day-long workshop.Hall said that it can be a lot for teachers to wrap their heads around, because they think they “know what school is.”“Because I went to school and I’ve been teaching in school and I have a good understanding of school,” Hall said. “But if I have to actually put the pieces of school together, the process of getting through that is somewhat unknown.”Laura IsenseeBiology teacher Christian Johnson said that the changes at Furr High will be a challenge for teachers, but she believes they will make “history.”Johnson, who just finished her first year as a teacher, said she wondered how she would put all the pieces together and “personalize” learning for over 100 students.“It’s got to be challenging because everybody is not actually ready to be on their own with learning. So it’s going to be a challenge,” she said.More challenges: Johnson and her fellow ninth grade instructors have to come up with new kinds of tests besides multiple choice bubble sheets. They will also need to work together with students to create hands-on projects. And, as one big ninth grade team, they’ll teach different subjects together, like English and science.Plus, the new ninth grade academy at Furr High School will be a separate part of the school’s brand new campus.Johnson, who used to work in retail and banking before she became a teacher, said she liked that idea. It’s how she spent her own freshman year in Fort Hood.“I love my babies even though they are a task to deal with on their own,” she explained. “They’re kind of confused, like, they think they’re grown because they are out of middle school. But then they get with the high school, they’re still a baby. So they get confused and I love working with my ninth graders and I want to stay with them.”Laura IsenseeAt workshops this spring and summer, teachers at Furr High School worked together to refine the new ninth grade academy.Others don’t consider this active instruction all that cutting edge.“This is not new. This is teaching,” said Linda McSpadden McNeil, who directs of the Center for Education at Rice University. She said this is how teaching should be done.But instead, she explained, schools and politicians have focused so much on standardized testing, they’ve pushed this kind of teaching aside.“There is a very long tradition certainly going back to do John Dewey,” McNeil said, noting the American psychologist who pushed for education reform in the early 20th century.“Henry David Thoreau got in trouble for taking his students out in the woods to identify plants rather than just using big, biological, botanical taxonomies. So, no, the idea of really engaging the kids’ minds — giving them significant issues to wrestle with, to puzzle over, to compare different primary source documents and to write — is absolutely not new.”She added that to really teach in this way, instructors need the time for planning and support from their school leadership.Laura IsenseeLast year, Furr High School won a $10 million dollar grant from the nonprofit, the XQ Institute. A big focus in the next school year: the school’s new ninth grade academy.At Furr High, teachers still feel some pressure. During the recent workshop, social studies teacher Merriah Wilhite asked about ninth graders who arrive at school already behind in the basics, like reading.“How does that look as far as getting them ready to do independent work, to take ownership of the things they need to have finished?” Wilhite asked.“Where do you start out there? How do you do the realistic day-to-day work? And so we were saying that we do feel overwhelmed and it seems like a lot. We’re willing to do the work, we’re willing to be invested in the kids because this is for the kids and we’re all about the kids.”In fact, teachers at Furr said that, under that stress, they also feel excited.“This will be history,” said Johnson. “Matter of fact, when I tell people I work at Furr for now they still have that old Furr in their mind, like, ‘Oh my gosh, how can you deal with all the gang-banging there?’ And they don’t understand that Furr is growing and is changing in a new direction so I definitely want to be a part of that history.”Laura IsenseeNinth grade teachers Seema Dwivedi and Superna Arya joined their fellow instructors this spring to prepare for a new kind of ninth grade. It will involve new kinds of tests, more hands-on projects and students taking more ownership of their own learning.Editor’s Note: This series is produced with support from the Education Writers Association Reporting Fellowship program.

Mine those asteroids Strathclyde team finds easy 12

Credit: arXiv:1304.5082 [math.DS] Ten thousandth near-Earth object unearthed in space Citation: Mine those asteroids: Strathclyde team finds easy 12 (2013, August 13) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-08-asteroids-strathclyde-team-easy.html “Asteroids and comets are of strategic importance for science in an effort to understand the formation, evolution and composition of the Solar System. Near-Earth Objects (NEOs) are of particular interest,” they said, “because of their accessibility from Earth, but also because of their speculated wealth of material resources.” While they are not the first team to talk about how NEO resources may be exploited, the authors are pointing out that, out of these NEOs, they can identify a family of EROs—Easily Retrievable Objects. These EROs can be transported from “heliocentric orbits into the Earth’s neighborhood at affordable costs.” The problem to transfer an asteroid to an Earth or Moon centered orbit can be decoupled into the initial phase of inserting the asteroid into a stable invariant manifold, they said, and then provide the maneuvers required to continue the transit into the Earth system.The Strathclyde team searched through a database of about 9,000 NEOs for candidates and they found 12 that could be retrieved by changing velocity by less than 500 meters per second. .The authors said that the approach they would use for retrieval may also serve as a robust search and ranking methodology for future retrieval candidates that can be automatically applied to the growing survey of NEOs. “The possibility of capturing a small NEO or a segment from a larger object would be of great scientific and technological interest in the coming decades,” they stated. “It is a logical stepping stone towards more ambitious scenarios of asteroid exploration and exploitation, and possibly the easiest feasible attempt for humans to modify the Solar System environment.”As MIT Technology Review pointed out in discussing their findings, “None of the 12 ERO asteroids are new to astronomers; in fact one of them became briefly famous when it was found to be temporarily orbiting the Earth until 2007. But until now nobody had realized just how easily these bodies could be captured.”The authors of the article stated that “The paper presents a list of 12 EROs, with a total of 25 trajectories to periodic orbits near L2 and 6 near L1 below a cost of 500 m/s, and the number of these objects is expected to grow considerably in the coming years.” More information: Easily Retrievable Objects among the NEO Population, arXiv:1304.5082 [math.DS] arxiv.org/abs/1304.5082AbstractAsteroids and comets are of strategic importance for science in an effort to understand the formation, evolution and composition of the Solar System.

In this paper, we consider the currently known NEO population and define a family of so-called Easily Retrievable Objects (EROs), objects that can be transported from accessible heliocentric orbits into the Earth’s neighbourhood at affordable costs. The asteroid retrieval transfers are sought from the continuum of low energy transfers enabled by the dynamics of invariant manifolds; specifically, the retrieval transfers target planar, vertical Lyapunov and halo orbit families associated with the collinear equilibrium points of the Sun-Earth Circular Restricted Three Body problem. The judicious use of these dynamical features provides the best opportunity to find extremely low energy Earth transfers for asteroid material. A catalogue of asteroid retrieval candidates is then presented. Despite the highly incomplete census of very small asteroids, the ERO catalogue can already be populated with 12 different objects retrievable with less than 500 m/s of {Delta}v. Moreover, the approach proposed represents a robust search and ranking methodology for future retrieval candidates that can be automatically applied to the growing survey of NEOs.via Arxiv Blog This document is subject to copyright.

(Phys.org) —Researchers at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow have identified twelve easily retrievable objects among the population of near earth objects (NEOs). In their paper published this month in Celestial Mechanics and Dynamical Astronomy, authors D. García Yárnoz, J. P. Sánchez, and C. R. McInnes discuss the 12 asteroids that could be easily mined for valuable resources using existing spacecraft technology. Their article, “Easily Retrievable Objects Among the NEO Population,” focuses on near earth objects, about which other researchers tend to discuss in terms of the threats these pose in destruction. Authors of this paper, however, are concerned about being able to harness the positive benefits if the objects can be successfully exploited.last_img read more

The Internment of Ukrainian Canadians During the First World War

first_imgBanff, Alberta, is known for its picturesque scenery, majestic mountains and amazing wildlife. But it holds a darker secret. It was once home to the Castle Mountain Internment Camp, where 600 “enemy aliens” were held during the First World War, a large part of them Ukrainian Canadians. The internment of Ukrainian Canadians during the First World War came about as a result of the confinement of enemy aliens, from 1914-1920, under the terms of the War Measures Act. “Enemy aliens” were those citizens of nations legally at war with Canada who were living in Canada at the time of the war.Over 8,500 people, in 24 stations and camps throughout Canada, were interned. 3,138 were considered prisoners of war; the other 5,441 were civilians. Some 4,000 Ukrainian men, women and children at the time were citizens of Austro-Hungary, a country with which Canada was at war. Together with those in the camps, another 80,000 enemy aliens – the majority of whom were also Ukranian – had to carry identification papers and report regularly to the local police.Christmas celebration at Internment Camp in Canada, W.W.I, 1916.Despite the advice of the British government to not discriminate against those citizens of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Canada took a harder stance. Many of those interned were young men who were trying to leave Canada into the U.S. to look for work. However, it was illegal for them to cross the border at the time. And while most were immigrants, some were Canadian-born, or naturalized British subjects. It did not matter: they were seen as the enemy due to wartime feelings and martial fear. However, no serious threats to Canada ever materialized.Conditions at the camps varied, but as can be expected, were not particularly good. Castle Mountain, in Banff National Park, was especially bad. Many internees had been paroled into employment for private companies and government projects by 1917, such as the development of Banff National Park, but were still required to report regularly to local authorities. Internees were poorly paid – around $0.25 a day – and their own savings were confiscated.Commemorative stone at the Saskatchewan Railway Museum, formerly “Eaton Siding” near the Eaton Internment Camp. “Fortitude. To the memory of those who were interned at this site during the Great War. Eaton Internment Camp 1919.” Photo by SriMesh CC BY-SA 3.0Both the federal and provincial governments benefited from the internees labor, and the original confiscation of their funds, a portion of which remained at the Bank of Canada when the internment operations ended in 1920. Camps ranged across Canada, from British Columbia to Nova Scotia. Most opened in 1914; the camp at Kapuskasing, in Ontario, was the last to be closed in 1920.Of the over 8,500 people interned, 109 died of various injuries and illnesses, while 6 were killed trying to escape. Not surprisingly, some went insane or committed suicide as a result of their internment.Commemorative statue entitled “Never Forget” at the cemetery of the Kapuskasing Internment Camp, Kapuskasing, Ontario. Photo by P199 CC BY-SA 3.0The internment has left lingering, painful scars and since 1985 the Ukrainian Canadian community has been seeking official government acknowledgment of their history. In November 2005, Bill C-C331, the Internment of Persons of Ukrainian Origin Recognition Act, finally acknowledged the internment of Ukrainian Canadians during the First World War, calling for a negotiated settlement between those community members and the government.Commemorative plaque and a statue entitled “Why?” / “Pourquoi?” / “Chomu?”, by John Boxtel at the location of Castle Mountain Internment Camp, Banff National Park.In 2008, the Canadian government started a $10 million fund, called the Endowment Council of the Canadian First World War Internment Recognition Fund. Interest from this trust pays for projects to remember the experiences of those who were interned between 1914 and 1920, including Ukrainian Canadians, other “enemy aliens,” and those whose civil liberties and freedoms were suspended.Read another story from us: The man who became President without ever leaving his houseThere are currently 20 plaques and memorials across Canada to commemorate the internment and the lives that were affected by it, including 2 locations in Banff National Park. The last known survivor of the camps – Mary Hancharuk – was actually born in the Spirit Lake Camp. She died in 2008, at the age of 92.Patricia Grimshaw is a self-professed museum nerd, with an equal interest in both medieval and military history.

Watch as opera singer performs throughout his own brain surgery

first_imgIt’s always a little freaky to watch videos of awake brain surgery: It’s hard to believe that someone can stay calm and patient as doctors slice into their heads, and there’s something macabre about watching them talk through the process.But that’s important — these patients are kept awake precisely so that they can speak or perform other high-level functions as surgeons work on them. They’re giving doctors a map to work with when it comes time to remove the actual tumor.A video, taken in June 2014, shows professional opera singer Ambrož Bajec-Lapajne singing Franz Schubert’s “Gute Nacht” during his own surgery.Here’s a bit about awake brain surgery from an earlier post on the blog:Awake brain surgery is made possible by advanced brain mapping techniques and high-tech anesthetics. These days, doctors are working with a precise map of the brain they’re operating on, and they can use that to successfully extricate dangerous tumors that sit near important brain regions, like ones that control speech, motor function or memory. Meanwhile, the latest anesthetics make it possible to keep patients sedated but awake and talking.Plus, after testing a patient with questions or fine-motor tasks while applying electrical stimulation to different parts of the brain to see where the vulnerable areas are located, doctors can put them right to sleep for the actual removal, confident that they’ve mapped out forbidden areas.In Bajec-Lapajne’s case, doctors wanted to monitor his ability to recognize changes in key, since that’s something he relies heavily on for his profession. They were most likely trying to avoid hurting those functions in the course of removing the tumor. Singing is also a good task to help doctors avoid hurting speech areas — which is why some musicians choose to play guitar and sing during their surgeries instead of more traditional tasks like reading and answering questions.You’ll see something alarming happen around the 2:40 mark: Bajec-Lapajne slurs his words, and his singing slows to a muddy halt. But that’s not an indication of something going wrong, exactly: Surgeons need to know what parts of the brain will wreak this kind of havoc if they’re interfered with. Bajec-Lapajne’s scary moment was exactly the point of the exercise, showing surgeons where not to go during the tumor removal.And as you can see, he bounces right back to a beautiful performance. Bajec-Lapajne writes on his YouTube page that he’s doing fine a year later, and continues to pursue a career in classical music.© 2015, The Washington Post Facebook Comments Related posts:No need to declare emergency over Ebola threat, says health official Nearly 14,000 sickened banana workers to receive payment for pesticide exposure Costa Rica’s sextuplets drive regulation of fertility treatments Zika research to be published rapidly and freelast_img read more
