Heating Season Best Time to Test for Radon

first_imgNow that heating season has arrived, Nova Scotians are encouraged to test their homes for radon, a naturally occurring radioactive soil gas. In partnership with the Lung Association of Nova Scotia, Cancer Care Nova Scotia, and the Canadian Cancer Society-Nova Scotia Division, the province will remind homeowners that it is “Time to Test” throughout the next several weeks. “By launching this public-awareness campaign, we continue to lead the country in addressing radon as a health issue,” said Mark Parent, Minister of Environment and Labour, the lead agency for radon testing and awareness in the province. “The health risk of radon in indoor air is associated with long-term exposure,” said Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s Chief Public Health Officer. “If you’re exposed to elevated levels over many years, you are at increased risk for lung cancer, especially if you are a smoker.” Long-term exposure to high levels of radon is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. Testing during the heating season gives a more accurate measure of how much radon is accumulating in living spaces from soil underneath buildings because windows and doors are closed. Testing devices, including mail-in laboratory analysis, are available through major retailers, environmental testing companies or on the Internet for $40-$80. A new national guideline suggests reducing radon gas levels to 200 Becquerels per cubic metre, one quarter the level described in the old guideline. For more information on radon gas, testing, and the Health Canada guideline, call Environment and Labour at 1-877-9-ENVIRO (368476) or go to the department’s website at www.gov.ns.ca/enla .last_img read more

UN blue helmets in DR Congo on standby after blast in arms

The blast occurred on Friday when a lightning strike apparently sparked a fire in a military barrack in Mbuji Mayi, one of the DRC’s largest cities.“Over 20 people died, more than 50 were injured and many houses destroyed by the blast, causing desolation in the city,” according to today’s statement from the UN peacekeeping mission known by its French acronym, MONUSCO. MONUSCO head and Special Representative of the Secretary-General, Martin Kobler, expressed his deep sadness by the loss of lives and extended his condolences to the families who lost loved ones. “I wish a speedy recovery to all the injured,” he said, adding “I have instructed our office in Mbuji Mayi to stand by and support local authorities in dealing with the situation”.One of the main objectives of MONUSCO peacekeepers, also known as “blue helmets”, as mandated by the Security Council, is to assist the Government in protecting civilians in the country.In a Newsmaker interview with the UN News Centre earlier this month, Mr. Kobler stressed the importance of a political solution to addressing the underlying causes of violence in the DRC and the overall Great Lakes region.“The region of the Great Lakes has to integrate more economically above all for the benefit of all populations in the different countries,” he said. “Everybody has to be convinced that stability, economic integration, regional political integration, confidence-building between the States – this is the right way to go in the long-term.” read more

Europa Les possibles atterissages sur la lune de Jupiter compromis par de

first_imgEuropa : Les possibles atterissages sur la lune de Jupiter compromis par de pics de glace géants Selon une nouvelle étude, les conditions d’atterrissage sur Europa, une des lunes de Jupiter, pourraient être difficiles. La raison ? La surface de la planète, en partie couverte de pics de glace. Europa, la lune glacée de Jupiter, est l’un des objectifs principaux pour les futures missions spatiales. En effet, la présence d’un océan liquide souterrain qui pourrait contenir les bonnes conditions pour le développement de la vie intéresse tout particulièrement les chercheurs.Pourtant, ces missions pourraient s’avérer plus qu’hasardeuses : des stalagmites en dents de scie, pouvant mesurer jusqu’à 10 mètres de hauteur recouvrent une partie de la surface de la planète.Ce problème de terrains a été exposé en détails par des scientifiques jeudi, lors de la 44ème Conférence sur la science lunaire et planétaire. Sur Terre, ces pics de glace se forment à de très hautes altitudes, comme dans les Andes, lorsque les irrégularités du sol glacé sont accentuées par l’énergie solaire. Cette dernière se retrouve piégée dans les sillons de glace et va de plus en plus profondément, pour former les fameux pics.  À ces altitudes, l’air est à la fois sec et froid, causant une sublimation de la glace, qui passe directement de l’état solide à l’état gazeux. Mais ces phénomènes ne peuvent se produire sur Terre qu’à une latitude comprise entre 30 degrés et l’Équateur, où le Soleil est le plus à la verticale, explique le docteur Daniel Hobley, de l’Université du Colorado.Des conditions de formation idéalesSur Europa, les conditions nécessaires à la formation de ces pics de glace sont réunies lorsque la latitude est comprise entre 15 à 20 degrés et l’équateur. “Europa est fortement reliée à Jupiter, elle-même verrouillée sur les niveaux du Soleil. Donc le soleil se couche directement au dessus de la lune”, précise-t-il. Avec une atmosphère pratiquement absente, Europa présente donc des conditions plus ou moins idéales à la formation de ces lames glacées. “Nous estimons que si la surface d’Europa se sublime, donc si elle est sculptée par la lumière solaire, ces phénomènes se formeront”, ajoute le docteur Hobley. Les chercheurs se posent désormais la question de savoir si la sublimation de la glace qui produit ces pics est plus rapide que n’importe quel autre procédé d’érosion de la surface, qui peuvent se produire en dehors de cette zone de latitude. Parmi eux, il existe un phénomène d’érosion en “grésillement”, le bombardement rapide de la surface lunaire par des particules chargées, ou les impacts de météorites.D’autres problèmes potentielsÀ lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Le docteur Javier Corripio, glaciologue, suggère qu’un autre procédé pourrait être actif à la surface d’Europa. “Les températures et la pression atmosphérique sont très basses, de même que les taux de sublimation. La vapeur pourrait simplement se déplacer d’une région de haute pression à une autre où la pression est plus basse, causant une évolution très lente des cristaux de neige”, décrypte-il. Europa posséderait ainsi une ceinture hérissée de pointes, rendant tout atterrissage d’engin spatial hasardeux. Or, les scientifiques souhaitent lancer sur la lune de Jupiter un robot spatial, qui récolterait des possibles échantillons d’eau provenant de l’océan souterrain. Une étude publiée en février dernier, montre que de l’eau salée remonte à la surface glacée d’Europa. Mike Brown, co-auteur de l’étude, de l’Institut de Technologie de Californie, affirme à la BBC “qu’il existe des preuve que l’océan d’Europa n’est pas isolé, qu’il communique avec la surface et échange des produits chimiques”. La Nasa avait prévu une mission en orbite, en collaboration avec l’Agence Spatiale Européenne, baptisée Europa-Jupiter System Mission, pour 2020. Le projet a été abandonné, faute de budget.

WHS VOLLEYBALL Wildcats Win 5 InARow Get Back To 500

first_imgGoing into this match, we were warned that Watertown had a very scrappy defense, but not a very potent offense. We stressed to the girls how important it was for them to keep the ball in play against a scrappy team. Keep our errors to a minimum and look for our opportunities to score.The Wildcats came out strong in the first set. Watertown ran very few attacks, relying instead on just keeping the ball in play with free balls trying to score on 2nd ball over. Wilmington stayed patient and kept the ball in play, running their own attacks and scoring when they could. Once again, after a dominant first set, there was some let-down in the second set. To their credit Watertown did a much better job of running an offense and managed to score more often, but Wilmington held tough and gutted out a narrow victory. We made a small change to the lineup in the third set to let Raegan Sweeney play all the way around again, and have her use her powerful swings to generate some energy. She did a great job, sparking the team to a dominant third set victory.Serving was a strength again this set with 96% serving, 10 aces and only 3 errors. Six of our nine active players served 100%! Our lowest serving percentage was 75%. It was great to see the girls putting our instructions into practice and not giving points away.Our game plan in this match was to attack Watertown out of the middle. Both Gianna Brunetto and Maeve Cadogan rose to the challenge. Gianna continues to thrive in the middle with 7 kills and only one error. Maeve contributed another 6 kills and only one error. Gabby Bond had 7 kills from the outside.Coming UpThe match against Watertown marked the mid-point in our 2018 season. Wilmington now stands at 3-5 in the Middlesex League and 5-5 overall. The season continues with a match against perennial powerhouse Winchester (6-2) at home on Tuesday, Oct 2nd at 4:00 pm, and away at Arlington (0-5) on Thursday, Oct 4th at 4:00 pm.Dig PinkWe seeking community support for our annual “Dig Pink” fundraiser in support of the Sideout Foundation and the work they do to support Stage 4 Breast Cancer patients and their families as the fight this terrible disease that continues to afflict so many in our community and in our families.This season, our Dig Pink fundraiser will be taking place on Friday, October 12th, during our match against Melrose.

Coming off a few recent victories the girls seemed ready to turn it on against Stoneham. I continued to stress the need to play smart. Serve in! Hit in!Apparently Brittany Cimaglia took my instructions to heart. After we got our first point on a great play from serve receive, Britt went on a run of 14 straight serves to stake us to a 15-0 lead. Wilmington never looked back in that set, allowing Stoneham only six more points in that set. As is often the case after a blow-out victory, there was a let-down in intensity and focus on our part, leading to a 4-8 deficit early on. But they were able to pull it together, tie it up and extend out to a 22-10 lead, before closing out the second set 25-14. The third set was closer, but Wilmington held the lead from start to finish.This was the Wildcats best serving performance of the season, serving 93% with 17 aces and only 5 errors! As mentioned earlier, Britt Cimaglia was outstanding, serving 97% with 10 aces and only 1 error on 33 service attempts. Anna Rideout and Khrystyna Fedynyak contributed perfect serving outings as well.We saw great improvement in our offense during this match as well, with a total of 22 kills and only 12 errors during the match. Our new middle hitter, Gianna Brunetto had a great night with 8 kills and only one error. Gabby Bond also contributed 8 kills with only one error. Maeve Cadogan had 5 kills with only one error.We were very pleased with the way that the team played their game during this match, no matter whether Stoneham was running an offense at them or just dumping free balls at them. They maintained their composure and got their jobs done.Watertown Wilmington325232525center_img Newburyport continues to improve, and is proving to be a competitive adversary. We have been trying to stress to the team how important it is to play smart: serve aggressive, but serve smart; hit aggressively, but hit in.. Don’t just try to overpower our opponents, but keep them out of system to get more opportunities to run an offense. Hit the ball over the net and find the court. We have a few really tough servers who were able to do exactly what we were looking for.In the first set, we got out to a lead and were able to maintain it all the way to the end. The second set started out the same, but Newburyport was able to stay close and finally close out a tight set, 25-23. In the third set, the team got out to an early lead again. Newburyport came close, but this time, Wilmington was able to hold on for the win. In the fourth set, Wilmington came out strong opened a wider lead and was able to close out the match.Overall we served 88% with 25 aces and only 11 errors. Maeve Cadogan led the team with 100% serving and three aces. Britt Cimaglia and Gabby Bond once again were strong servers for us with 96% serving and 8 aces and 5 aces respectively with only a single error each.We were not as pleased with our offense, which got 20 kills in the match, but also made 19 attack errors. Again, we need to play smarter in order to continue to be successful. Gabby Bond led the team with 6 kills, and Raegan Sweeney contributed 5 kills.Injuries are bound to happen during the course of a season, and we lost one of our Middle Hitters during the first set of this match. We tried a couple of different players at middle, and finally decided on playing Gianna Brunetto at middle.

Therrell Smith DC Dance Legend Turns 100

first_imgAs Therrell Smith greeted family and friends during her 100th birthday party Nov. 5 at the University of the District of Columbia, she said she was thankful to be so blessed.Therrell Smith is pictured at a celebration for her 96th birthday. On Nov. 5, the D.C. dancer turned 100. (Courtesy photo)Identified as a D.C. dance legend by the International Association of Blacks in Dance, Smith, who has spent most of her life in D.C., has enjoyed spreading cheer to others through dance. She said she has been dancing since she was 8-years-old.“I am very blessed to see the age 100 and to still be able to do the things that I’ve been doing,” she told the AFRO, in reference to her mobility.“It brings me joy to know that I’ve touched so many lives. This is what my life is all about, my goal is to continue. This is what keeps me going.”As a teen, Smith attended Dunbar High School in Northeast D.C. where she choreographed several of the school’s plays and operettas. After graduating high school, Smith studied at Fisk University in Nashville, Tenn., where she spent summers working as a dance teacher at a summer camp in Wisconsin. After graduation, she continued to work with young people as a camp counselor and drama teacher at a camp in Massachusetts. During her younger years, she was selected to study in Paris under the famous Mathilde Kschessinska, prima ballerina assoluta of the Imperial Russian Ballet.“There is no finer person than I can think of to be a better role model. She is just an excellent person,” her niece Shelley Brown told the AFRO.In the District, Smith founded the Therrell Smith School of Dance in 1948. Through the school she has taught dance at the LeDroit Park Nursery School, on Rhode Island Avenue in Northwest D.C. and at the school’s current site on Bunker Hill Rd in Northeast D.C.  Smith attends Unity Church in Northwest D.C.“I didn’t think about dancing as a livelihood, but it was a good choice”, Smith told the AFRO.Smith, who was born and raised in D.C., has been a member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority for 78 years.“She is a warm, loving, and a humble person. She is very giving and willing to serve which is demonstrated through the community,” Jackie Harris, who is Smith’s sorority sister and has known her for many years, told the AFRO.last_img read more

In total, its subscriber base increased by 7.2% from the previous year. Popular on Variety center_img Last December, Gabriel Contreras, president of the Mexico’s Federal Telecommunications Institute (IFT), indicated that a subsidiary of América Móvil had applied for a license to provide pay TV services. Given its dominate position in the telco sector, America Movil itself is forbidden from providing pay TV directly.According to Hajj, the company’s experience in other Latin American countries is cause for confidence. Once permission to broadcast pay TV is granted, “We can do it [offer triple play] quickly… We have experience in other countries in addition to commercial agreements for content.”Last month América Móvil announced it had acquired 100% of Guatemala’s Telefónica subsidiary, and reached an agreement to buy 99.3% of El Salvador’s subsidiary as well.last_img read more

Forest dept undertakes steps to increase green cover

first_imgKolkata: The state Forest department is taking measures to increase the green cover in the state that is rapidly depleting due to urbanisation.”The loss of green cover is a world-wide concern and we have to address this issue along with reducing pollution and controlling carbon emissions. The present forest cover in our state is only 14 percent. We have to take it up to 30 percent and make the state a better place to live in,” Mayor Firhad Hakim said at the inaugural programme of the 16th edition of Flower Fair, popularly known as Phool Mela at Eden Gardens on Thursday.

Replace Your PC and Improve Productivity

first_img PC’s aren’t that different from a lot of us: They just sit around all day getting flabby. So if you want to squeeze another year out of your machine–or even retrofit it with Windows Vista in ’07–there’s no better time to put it on a regular program of tuning up and toning up.I don’t know your machine personally, of course. But even if it isn’t bogged down with Trojans and spyware (as so many are), just the way Windows goes about its business will pack flab on the fastest hunk of hardware. A PC’s Registry can get cluttered with outdated keys that waste processor cycles and have marginally useful or even harmful proc-esses in system memory. Just one day of computing will thoroughly fragment a C: drive. And out-of-shape PCs are more likely to be pushed around by hackers.We’ve covered the security aspect before, so let’s fast-forward through that discussion: Run Windows Update regu-larly and use ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite as well as Mozilla’s Firefox browser and its Thunderbird e-mail editor. Install Lavasoft Ad-Aware and Spybot-S&D to nuke new bugs that sneak through your firewall. You may even need a specific tool like Trend Micro’s CWShredder for some strains. ZoneAlarm is $50 (all prices street); the rest are free.As for keeping your PC in shape, we’re not talking about triathlon shape, which would mean spending half your workdays on computer maintenance. But if your computer is going to load Windows and browse the web without wheezing, its disks, memory and Windows Registry need regular tuneups.Whose PC Is It?Theoretically, you control what gets put onto your hard drives and into system memory by clicking icons. But in reality, the only PC property rights you have are those you’re prepared to enforce–which has become pretty complicated since you signed up for broadband.A lot of programs and web pages today treat your PC as though they own it. Remember that “I accept the license agreement” button? They consider that carte blanche to load whatever self-serving processes they want, hold onto as much RAM as they can and, when unloaded, leave behind a Fourth of July weekend’s worth of litter.You shouldn’t have to spend your time policing your machine, but if you don’t, you’re going to be exploited. As with security, start with a good general-purpose suite like Symantec’s $70 Norton SystemWorks 2006 or Iolo’s $50 System Mechanic 6. Both are jumbo toolboxes of scanners and utilities that will root out and fix 95 percent of your PC snafus, and you can choose whether they do it en masse or one problem at a time.It’s My ProcessJust for fun, I ran a couple of PCs for several weeks without maintenance to see how much plaque would build up. Norton’s scanners uncovered 118 invalid ActiveX entries, three invalid application paths, five missing file extensions, seven invalid help files, 38 broken shortcuts and 10 missing shared files on one. System Mechanic found a similar complement of system snarls on the other, along with 430MB of unneeded Windows and internet files. Both C: drives were a mess, and one had about 200MB worth of system memory tied up by processes whose applications were no longer running.With a couple of mouse clicks, both suites had most of that junk swept out and Registry and RAM tuned so programs could load and unload cleanly. Some jobs, like disk diagnosis and optimization, are better addressed individually so you can determine the which, when and how. In fact, even though you could schedule most maintenance tasks to run automatically at off-peak times, that’s not a good idea. Any program that can change a PC the way these suites can needs supervision.It can seem foreign at first, but over time, these scanners and sweepers will help you get to know what’s going on behind your foreground applications. Launch Windows Task Manager (press Ctrl-Alt-Del) and you’ll see that every machine has a couple dozen strange-sounding processes running all the time. Which are Windows services, which belong to your applications, and which are potentially harmful strangers?Task Manager won’t say. But the alternative process viewers in System Mechanic and SystemWorks can help you decipher them. Problems vary, so you may also need Codestuff’s Starter and HijackThis–a shareware pair favored by blogs and forums that helps solve parasite problems.I wish you just needed to buy one program and push one button. But it’s 2007, the bad guys are clever, and you can’t afford not to keep up.

The most frustrating part of Apple’s modern MacBooks — from the Air to Pro to the 12-inch MacBook — is how Apple’s ditched the MagSafe connector port (that’s only on the aging MacBook Air) that disconnects whenever any amount of pressure pulls it away. If a small pet or child runs past your laptop and catches their foot on that Type-C cables that Apple includes, they’ll pull your laptop down to the ground, creating a calamity that nobody needs.

Argentina strike halts flights trains buses

first_img By: The Canadian Press << Previous PostNext Post >> Tags: Argentina, Strike Argentina strike halts flights, trains, buses Thursday, May 30, 2019 BUENOS AIRES — Much of Argentina came to a standstill Wednesday as a strike to protest government austerity measures grounded hundreds of flights, halted bus and train lines and forced the closing of banks, courts and many schools.The country’s main grains ports were also shut and hospitals offered only emergency services during the 24-hour strike organized by labour unions to protest the policies of President Mauricio Macri, who is seeking re-election in October. Those include the firing of workers and the slashing of government subsidies that have shot up the costs of transportation and utility rates. Argentines are also fed up with a stubborn recession, a devaluation of the currency and one of the world’s highest inflation rates.Authorities estimated that about 330 flights from the country’s flagship carrier, Aerolineas Argentinas, were cancelled and some 37,000 passengers were affected by the walkout, which also forced the ‘Recopa’ final between soccer clubs River Plate and Brazil’s Atletico Paranaense to be postponed to Thursday.More news:  Flight Centre Travel Group takes full ownership of Quebec-based agencyUnion leaders said it was the largest strike that they had organized since Macri took office in 2015 promising to end poverty and tame high consumer prices. They say government policies have led to the closing of some 14,000 small and mid-size companies while Argentines continue to lose purchasing power to an “alarming” inflation rate of about 50% a year.Unions and left-leaning organizations cut some roads leading into the capital city and distributed food to show what they say is increasing hunger.“We’re sick of the low salaries, the halt of activity in the industry,” said unionist Ruben Garcia.The government rejected the strike, saying it only affects Argentina’s economy and that the stoppage is a political measure by union leaders who aspire to public office.

Stage right Canadian musicians find much to love

first_imgStage right: Canadian musicians find much to love about writing theatrical shows TORONTO – Leaping into musical theatre wasn’t the most obvious step for Alan Doyle’s career, but when an offer to write songs for a stage adaptation of “The Grand Seduction” landed in his lap, he was instantly intrigued.The former Great Big Sea singer was asked to pen lyrics for a musical based on the 2013 Don McKellar film, itself a remake of the French-Canadian hit “La Grande Seduction.” Doyle felt navigating around an already established story based in Newfoundland and Labrador would be entirely new territory.“What a fun thing to do,” he says of the collaborative songwriting sessions that he likened to performing improvisational theatre.“Mary comes out. What does she sing? It needs to be something about the groceries.”Five songs have now been written and Doyle says a workshop version of the play is expected to debut at the Charlottetown Festival, which runs every May to October in Prince Edward Island.It’s just one of several musicals in development with a Canadian musician taking a key role behind the scenes.While many singer-songwriters have lent their talents to playhouses in the past — including former Barenaked Ladies frontman Steven Page and Dave Bidini of Rheostatics — there’s a renaissance of theatrical ambitions afoot.Page is currently developing his eighth project with the Stratford Festival, a musical tentatively called “Here’s What It Takes” that focuses on the turbulent friendship between two musicians whose career paths diverge.Other hot commodities are headed to Broadway, including an adaptation of “Pretty Woman” with ballad virtuoso Bryan Adams and songwriting partner Jim Vallance giving texture to the “hooker with a heart of gold” Hollywood hit. The play makes its Chicago debut in March 2018 before hitting New York later in the year.Meanwhile, Alanis Morissette’s influential 1995 album “Jagged Little Pill” will be the centrepiece of a production by the American Repertory Theater in Massachusetts next year. While the pop singer isn’t directly involved, if her hits “You Oughta Know,” “Ironic” and “Hand in my Pocket” prove they’re still huge draws then a Broadway run could be in the cards.For musicians, working in theatre gives them an opportunity to sideline the rigours of touring and focus on writing.Torquil Campbell launched his career as a thespian and still balances his musical output with indie outfit Stars by taking on the occasional scripted show.“I love that sense of desperation that comes when a play begins,” says Campbell, who presented the show “True Crime” at Toronto’s Crow’s Theatre earlier this year.“The audience isn’t certain they’re going to be engaged and the actors are not certain they can manage to convince an audience. There’s a huge bridge there to cross and it’s a thrilling risk to take.”Billy Talent frontman Ben Kowalewicz looked forward to a similar sensation as he prepared for the Toronto engagement of “A&R Angels,” penned by Broken Social Scene founder Kevin Drew, which is running at Crow’s Theatre until Dec. 9.Kowalewicz found a renewed creative energy performing with a small cast of experienced actors and an attentive audience.“The closest I’ve ever been (to this) is doing a music video,” he says.“Those 200 other strangers (in the audience) I was just with, it will never really be duplicated exactly the same way ever again.”For Randy Bachman, it’s a fascination with the emotional mechanics behind writing and producing that has lured him into theatre.Whenever the “Takin’ Care of Business” songwriter visits London’s West End theatre district he takes note of everything that resonates with him — from the stage layout, to the music playing while people are ushered to their seats, and the wares on the merchandise tables.Bachman says he plans to apply that research to “Prairie Town,” a play he’s working on with a Broadway writer and financiers out of Winnipeg. He hopes to include songs from Neil Young, the Guess Who and Bachman-Turner Overdrive, as well as some others he wrote.The storyline revolves around a U.S. draft dodger who flees to Winnipeg in the 1960s and falls in love with an Indigenous woman caught in her own turmoil involving residential schools. It’s set in Canada’s windy city, which Bachman calls “the magical Liverpool of North America.”“They meet and fall in love with our music in the background,” he says, noting the script is still in development.Clashing with all of these ambitions is the reality of getting a play into production. Rarely is the process easy, even when you’re a celebrity who can attract curious theatregoers.Investors sometimes get cold feet and securing a venue can be challenging. Other times, the concept is a tough sell or producers get pulled onto other projects before work begins.Grammy-winning producer David Foster has spent the better part of a decade involved in writing songs for a Betty Boop musical. Originally expected on Broadway in the 2010-11 season, the project instead languished for years, although he believes it’s finally gaining headway.Foster, a Los Angeles dweller who penned some of Celine Dion’s biggest hits, recently purchased a New York dwelling in the hopes that living closer to one of the world’s theatre hubs will inject more life into the next stage of his career. He also has an autobiographical one-man show he’s trying to get some development traction for.Foster says wading into the theatre world made sense for him once he stopped chasing massive chart success.“You don’t have to write a song that will get on Top 40 radio, you just have to write a song that tells the story,” he says.“Broadway’s a perfect place for me to write with abandonment again.”Follow @dfriend on Twitter.

We will continue our efforts to reunite Cyprus President says

first_imgPresident of the Republic of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades reassured the people of Cyprus that efforts to reach a solution to the Cyprus problem and reunify the country will continue, through the peace talks.In statements after Sunday’s military parade on the occasion of Cyprus’ Independence Day, in Nicosia, President Anastasiadescongratulated the National Guard on an “impressive parade”, saying that we celebrate the Independence Day with proof of our decision to modernize the Armed Forces in order to be able to respond both to our European obligations and the defensive needs of our homeland.The President said that the National Guard is being modernized with new weapon systems, a new image and through restructuring, which turned it into a truly professional military force. He pointed out that the reduction of the military service has not affected the National Guard, which, on the contrary has been strengthened.He also referred to the cooperation with Greece, saying that this creates the necessary conditions to be able to negotiate from a position of strength. The Greek government was represented at the parade by National Defence Minister Panos Kammenos.“The support and cooperation with Greece within the broader EU framework and the closer cooperation we have with the presence of the aircrafts here, create the necessary conditions to be able to negotiate from a position of strength but also to be able to prevent any aggressive action” he stressed.The President paid tribute to the Cypriots who sacrified their lives for freedom and democracy and also conveyed a message of peace to the Turkish Cypriots.“I would like to address myself to our Turkish Cypriot compatriots and tell them that this Republic, this homeland has a place for all of us, provided that we understand what it means to respect each other and where the limits of each other’s rights are”.He assured the Cypriot people that “we will continue to make efforts so that, through a peaceful dialogue, we will be able to achieve the reunification of our country, get rid of guarantees, invasive rights, dependencies, occupational army. Only by doing so we can really live in conditions of peace, co-creation, and restore trust”.Replying to a question, he said that Cyprus’ policy includes cooperation with all EU countries and the neighbouring ones, adding that the National Guard is conducting excercises with Greek, Egyptian, Israeli, French forces for instance.‘So, in the framework of the wider strategic protection of the EU borders, cooperation will be continued, strengthened and enlarged’.Invited to comment on the UNSG’s report on the Cyprus issue, he said that comments will be made once they look into the report. Some first comments will be made tomorrow, he concluded.CNAYou May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoOur View: Argaka mukhtar should not act as if he owns the beachUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

roadside chapel in her yard and had spent youthful days cleaning the place with her mother She said the annual Mass has long held a special meaning for the people of the local farming community"It’s always been here" she said "It’s something everyone should experience"When Moen opened prayer he appealed to the power of God to influence humanity in and beyond the fields He prayed for the safety of those laboring on the farms and—most of all—he prayed for a bountiful harvestWhen the Mass ended and the parishioners began to drift back to their vehicles to drive home Gary Babinski was among those
