Guide destiné aux parents pour contrer lintimidation

first_imgLes familles ont une nouvelle ressource pour les aider à reconnaître l’intimidation et à y faire face. Aujourd’hui, 16 août, à Halifax, la ministre de l’Éducation et du Développement de la petite enfance, Ramona Jennex, a parlé du guide destiné aux parents pour contrer l’intimidation et la cyberintimidation lors de la conférence sur la lutte contre l’intimidation « Élevons la voix! ». « Nous voulons que les familles aient l’information nécessaire pour que leurs enfants aient des relations saines et que les écoles soient des endroits sûrs, a déclaré Mme Jennex. Le guide, intitulé L’intimidation et la cyberintimidation : ce qu’il faut savoir, aidera les parents et les tuteurs à reconnaître les comportements intimidateurs, qu’ils soient en personne ou en ligne, et à y faire face. » Les participants à la conférence ont reçu le guide aujourd’hui et les parents en recevront un exemplaire lors de la rentrée scolaire en septembre. « Bien des parents ne savent pas quoi surveiller dans le comportement de leur enfant ou quoi faire si celui-ci fait de l’intimidation, a déclaré Mme Jennex. J’ai hâte de leur fournir cette ressource qui encouragera la conversation et aidera les familles à faire face à l’intimidation à l’école et dans la collectivité. » Tina Hennigar, maman d’un enfant de 12 ans de Mahone Bay, a dit : « Les parents veulent des réponses à des questions difficiles, comme “Qu’est-ce que je dois faire si mon enfant est victime d’intimidation?” et ce qui est encore plus important, “Qu’est-ce que je dois faire si mon enfant est l’intimidateur? « Tous les parents doivent être mis au courant que la cyberintimidation est un acte criminel et que, si leur enfant est un cyberintimidateur, ils peuvent faire l’objet d’une accusation. C’est à nous de rapporter la cyberintimidation et de tenir les gens responsables. » Le guide contient des renseignements sur les causes de l’intimidation, les types d’intimidation, la façon de reconnaître les comportements intimidateurs, la façon dont les parents peuvent aider, et les endroits où s’adresser pour obtenir de l’aide dans le milieu scolaire et la communauté. Debra Pepler, professeur de psychologie à l’Université York et co-fondatrice de PREVNet, qui fait autorité en matière de recherche et de ressources pour la prévention de l’intimidation, a déclaré que la Nouvelle-Écosse avait préparé une excellente ressource pour les parents. Elle a dit que c’était un guide complet, pratique et positif pour les parents qui devaient aborder les questions d’intimidation et de cyberintimidation. Le guide est en ligne à www.antibullying.novascotia.ca. Le site Web a aussi une section pour les parents avec des liens aux organismes et aux programmes qui traitent de l’intimidation, de la sécurité sur Internet, de la santé mentale des adolescents et d’autres enjeux qui touchent les jeunes.last_img read more

Ontario Liberals take aim at NDP as third party endorsed by teachers

first_imgTORONTO – After months of painting the Ontario election as a two-horse race, the governing Liberals acknowledged another rival Thursday, taking aim at the NDP as the third party was endorsed by a teachers’ union.The Liberals raised questions about an NDP candidate they suggested advocates cutting teacher salaries, while their leader, Kathleen Wynne, attacked the party for its perceived disdain for business.Wynne, who had previously highlighted common ground between the Liberal and NDP plans while stressing a “stark” contrast with the Progressive Conservatives, also said the New Democrats have not explained how they would implement their platform, suggesting only her party could carry out its promises.“The plan that we’re bringing forward, which is an investment in care in this province, is doable. What our plan does is it recognizes, unlike the NDP, that the whole economy is important,” she said at a Toronto hospital, her first campaign stop of the day.“I understand that there’s an ideology on the part of the NDP that says that the private sector is inherently not a good thing. I don’t adhere to that.”Numerous polls have shown lagging support for Wynne and the Liberals contrasted with building momentum for NDP Leader Andrea Horwath and her party.One observer said the sudden shift in strategy is a logical response to the polls, but may suggest the Liberals now see themselves coming in third on June 7.“It’s natural for the Liberals to shift at least part of their attention to the party that’s lapping them,” said Andrea Perrella, director of the Laurier Institute for the Study of Public Opinion and Policy.The Liberals may initially have been reluctant to burn bridges with the NDP in case they won a minority and needed support, but may now fear they won’t form the official Opposition, he said.At the same time, while the NDP appears to be gaining public support, it’s hard to see the party making inroads in cottage country or the Toronto suburbs, Perrella said. The party’s best strategy is likely to recruit new voters, he said.Wynne denied feeling threatened by the New Democrats’ apparent gains in popularity, or by the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario’s endorsement of the party, saying the union’s backing does not mean teachers themselves will vote that way.“We haven’t always had, as a party, the full support of all of the unions or the federations … and individual teachers make their decisions on a riding by riding basis,” she said.The Liberals nonetheless attacked a New Democrat candidate on Thursday, suggesting Marco Coletta favours a 15 per cent reduction to teacher salaries in the province.Horwath said she isn’t aware of Coletta’s comments and said teachers would be “properly paid” for the work they do under an NDP government.She also brushed off Wynne’s suggestion that her party can’t act on its promises.“One of the things that we’re prepared to do that I think Liberals have shown they’re not prepared to do is ask their richest friends and richest corporations to help us pay for the promises that we’re making. To help us pay for things like a better health care system, prescription drugs for everyone, dental care for everyone,” Horwath said.The president of the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario said the NDP earned the union’s endorsement because of its commitment to publicly funded education.Horwath has promised to end standardized testing of students if elected, something the teachers’ union supports.Teachers have had a strained relationship with the governing Liberals for years following a bitter contract dispute with former premier Dalton McGuinty in 2012.— with files from Shawn Jeffords.last_img read more

Atlantic Canadians buying far more weed than rest of country, sales figures show

HALIFAX — Atlantic Canadians are buying far more legal cannabis per capita than Canadians elsewhere in the country, federal figures show.Statistics Canada has released province-by-province sales numbers for the first six weeks of legalization up to Dec. 1.The numbers reveal dramatic differences between provinces.Prince Edward Island tops the list, with residents on average spending $13.83 each on legal pot in six weeks.Nova Scotia came second at $11.34.Newfoundland and Labrador came in third at $8.17, followed by New Brunswick at $6.87.The national figure was $2.65.Cannabis industry expert Deepak Anand said all four Atlantic provinces were well-prepared for legalization and are now reaping the benefits.“A province like New Brunswick came out very early on, and had a very early lead,” said Anand.“They saw not just recreational legalization but medical legalization coming on board, and they gave the whole cannabis file to their economic development ministry, that worked with companies that were producers to try to set up in the province… They were very eager to get ahead.”Elsewhere in the country, Albertans spent $4.53, Ontarians spent $1.54, Quebecers spent $2.53 and British Columbians just 69 cents.B.C. is a special case because of its well-established and widely tolerated grey-market dispensaries, Anand said.“There hasn’t been this aggressive enforcement on existing dispensaries to shut down, though the province has hinted many times that that’s coming,” he said.“There wasn’t that level of enthusiasm in B.C. as we saw in the rest of the country, because cannabis access has been relatively easy in B.C. versus other provinces.”Provinces that had well-developed retail systems open on Oct. 17 brought in much more revenue.Anand said this is because many consumers want in-person advice, and want to be able to see — and smell — the product before they buy.“There is a desire and an intention, and perhaps a willingness to pay a little bit more to go to a store and talk to a person, versus simply buying something online,” Anand said.“They want to go and talk to someone and understand all of its properties and understand what it is going to do, even though there is limited information that stores can give. That human interaction is something that people like.”On Wednesday, P.E.I.’s finance department said that cannabis sales to the end of the year came to $3,509,913.(Global News)The Canadian Press read more

UN rights unit calls Darfur bombardments indiscriminate and inappropriate

The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) today described as “indiscriminate” a series of deadly aerial bombardments across the North Darfur region of Sudan and said there were many civilian casualties.OHCHR said it has learned that the attacks – over which United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon expressed deep concern on Wednesday – were carried out near El Fasher, North Darfur with helicopter gunships and Antonov aircraft between 19 and 29 April, killing and wounding civilians and destroying property, school buildings and livestock.“The bombardments appeared to have been indiscriminate and disproportionate, failing to distinguish between military and civilian targets,” Mr. Ban’s spokesperson Michele Montas said. “The disproportionate use of force constitutes violations of international humanitarian and human rights law,” she added. In one incident that was cited by the Secretary-General in his statement, the school in the village of Um Rai was struck by rockets fired from a Government helicopter. Some of the 170 pupils in the school were injured in that attack, with two civilians killed in the attack on the village.The OHCHR spokesman identified four other villages attacked during the period and said more information was being gathered on their consequences.What we do know, he said, is that the attacks have contributed to an already critical humanitarian situation, causing renewed displacement and spreading terror among the civilian population.More than 200,000 people have been killed and 2 million others displaced from their homes in Darfur since 2003 because of fighting between Government forces, allied Janjaweed militias and rebel groups since 2003. 11 May 2007The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) today described as “indiscriminate” a series of deadly aerial bombardments across the North Darfur region of Sudan and said there were many civilian casualties. read more

UN anticrime tsar warns of global reach of organized crime

In his opening remarks to the 18th session of the UN Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice, UNODC Executive Director Antonio Maria Costa said that drug cartels are spreading violence in Central America, Mexico, the Caribbean and West Africa. Collusion between insurgents and criminal groups is jeopardizing the stability of West Asia, the Andes and parts of Africa.Kidnapping is widespread around the world, he added, with human trafficking also extending its global reach.Blueprints for tackling organized crime, such as the UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime and the UN Convention against Corruption, already exist, the Executive Director said.But, he noted, “implementation has been patchy, there is almost no information on world crime and efforts to fight crime have been disjointed,” resulting in countries facing “a crime situation of their own making.”Although the current financial crisis could exacerbate the situation, it could also provide an opportunity to end bank secrecy, close tax havens and boost regulation and compliance measures, he stressed.States’ political will is “mightier than the greed and firepower of criminal groups,” Mr. Costa said, calling for stepped up global cooperation. “Working together does not mean surrendering sovereignty, it means defending it.”The 40-member Commission – which will review methods of crime prevention and the bolstering of criminal justice, as well as ways to fight economic fraud and identity-related crime – will wrap up its session on 24 April. 16 April 2009The head of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) cautioned today that organized crime “has gone global,” posing a security threat to cities, countries and even entire regions. read more

MLB to Drop Hammer Alex Rodriguez Faces Long Suspension

More details coming soon. According to several sources, Alex Rodriguez will be suspended by Major League Baseball on Monday. Rodriguez and 12 other players are projected to be suspended for their ties to performance-enhancing drugs dispensed at an anti-aging clinic in Miami, Fla.Officials for MLB are reportedly planning to suspend the New York Yankees slugger for the remainder of the 2013 season and the entire 2014 season—a move that may end Rodriguez’s career.After weeks of reports stating that A-Rod will settle with a lesser punishment, tense deliberations between Rodriguez and commissioner Bud Selig’s office ended Saturday. Selig later said that he would no longer negotiate with Rodriguez, according to one of the sources.Several other sources say that Selig changed his mind about the settlement because he was furious with Rodriguez for telling reporters he would not negotiate.“All this is about money,” one of the sources said. “This shows the selfishness of this guy that he would go to arbitration and force himself back in the clubhouse and subject the team to a season-long media circus.” read more

John Laird Some folks still ignore the value of women in politics

first_imgIsolated cases of colossal cluelessness about women continue to weaken America’s claim to being one of the world’s most advanced societies.Before I trot out the most recent coffee-spewing example of rancid male rhetoric about females, allow me to exonerate Clark County and Washington state from this condemnation.No one around here seems to have noticed, but history was made last Nov. 6 in Clark County’s three main legislative districts. For the first time, a majority of those nine legislators are women: Sharon Wylie, Ann Rivers, Annette Cleveland, Liz Pike and Monica Stonier. Friday I checked with Betty Sue Morris — who served in the Legislature from 1989 through 1996 — and she confirmed that this is the first time five women have represented Clark County’s three major districts.Does this make the delegation better? Not necessarily. It just means the community has reached a milestone in equal representation.At the state judicial level, a milestone was reached on Jan. 14 when newly elected Justice Sheryl Gordon McCloud was sworn in at the Washington State Supreme Court. For the first time, the state’s high court has both a female majority and a female chief justice (Barbara Madsen).Although these accomplishments are unprecedented, they’re not all that surprising. Washington has long been a model state in electing women, starting in 1913 when Frances C. Axtell of Whatcom County and Nena Jolidon Croake of Pierce County joined 95 men in the state House of Representatives.In fact, for 11 years — 1993 through 2004 — Washington ranked No. 1 in percentage of women legislators. We now rank ninth nationally; 30 percent (44 of 147) of the state legislators are women. This information is according to the office of new Washington Secretary of State Kim Wyman, one of 15 women serving in that role nationwide.last_img read more

ExxonMobil Enters Preliminary Gas Agreement With AGDC

Point Thomson contains approximately 25 percent of the North Slope’s discovered natural gas resources. The Gas Sales Precedent Agreement was signed by the Alaska Gasline Development Corp. and ExxonMobil, while a Letter of Understanding was signed by the Alaska Department of Natural Resources, ExxonMobil and BP to “better align the Point Thomson field production timeline with the Alaska LNG project, which is run by AGDC.”last_img read more

Hike in US visa fee will not affect Indian IT industry Narayana

first_imgInfosys co-founder NR Narayana Murthy on Friday said doubling of H-1B visa fee by the US government will not have an “impact” on domestic IT sector growth.”I don’t think it is an issue at all, $2,000 or $4,000 that doesn’t matter. The important thing is that you have to provide excellent value to customers,” Murthy told reporters after meeting Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad.Murthy’s statement is in contrast to the concerns raised by industry watchers who said such a steep hike in work visas would weigh on margins of IT companies.The US government has increased the fee to $4,000 for H-1B visas and $4,500 for L-1 visas. These work permit visas allow companies to hire highly-skilled workers from other countries when there is non-availability of such workers in the US.”These are issues that need to be discussed and I have no doubt at all that value of Indian IT services industry is so high to the US corporations that some of these issues will not come in the way of the growth of the Indian IT industry,” PTI quoted Murthy as saying.The Indian IT sector did not expect such a steep hike in visa fee, though it was prepared for an increase.”I am a foreigner. As far as the US government is concerned, it is their right to take whatever decision they want in the best interest of the US,” Murthy said.Doubling of H-1B visa fee by the US is expected to cost Indian IT companies nearly $400 million. Rise in visa costs will hit the service-based IT companies the most, while it will also affect product development companies.With the US heading for Presidential elections next year, the H-1B visa issue has grabbed the attention of the lawmakers in the country.last_img read more

LINCOLN Neb – About half of the more than 3000

first_img LINCOLN, Neb. – About half of the more than 3,000 known letters penned by Pulitzer-winning novelist Willa Cather have been compiled, digitized and annotated. And soon, they’ll be available online.“The Complete Letters of Willa Cather” will be available Jan. 16 through the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the Lincoln Journal Star reported .Cather graduated from the University of Nebraska in 1895. Her novels told of Great Plains frontier life, and she was awarded a Pulitzer in 1923 for her book “One of Ours.” She died in 1947.In the letters to friends, family and colleagues, Cather describes her process and inspirations while also expressing frustrations and doubts.“Through the letters, there are thousands and thousands of details no one knew before,” said Andrew Jewell, the archive’s editor.The journey to use Cather’s unpublished and private papers to add context to her published works began three years ago. The process was aided by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in co-operation with the Willa Cather Foundation in Red Cloud, a Nebraska town that served as a backdrop to Cather’s work.Researchers began collecting Cather’s letters, which were held at Harvard College, private collections in Vermont and elsewhere across the U.S. A team of about 14 editors and contributors made digital copies of the letters, then transcribed and annotated the pieces.
