Young childs leg severed after being struck by farming equipment police

first_imgCLEMENTSVALE, N.S. – RCMP say a seven-year-old girl has died of injuries she suffered when her leg was severed by a farm tractor that struck her as she played in a hay field in rural Nova Scotia.Cpl. Jennifer Clarke said in a release Thursday night that the girl succumbed to her injuries earlier in the evening.RCMP Sgt. Terry Miller said the child was alone in the field that was being mowed when the accident happened at around 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Clementsvale area.Miller said the tractor operator was aware of the presence of the child and was planning to stop the machinery when he came around.But Miller said when the operator turned around and stopped the tractor, he couldn’t see the child anywhere and thought she had returned to the house.Instead, he said, it appears the young girl hid in the deep, metre-high grass.“The operator had mowed over an area and as he was coming back he was travelling in the swath he had just mowed,” Miller said. “The mower was off to the side and he saw a child laying directly in front of him.“He immediately stopped the tractor and got out and ran to the child…you can imagine it was horrific.”Miller said the girl was visiting her grandparents, whose property is next to the field.He said the tractor operator is “devastated” by the heartbreaking accident.Paramedics arrived on the scene in less than 30 minutes, Miller said, and police arrived shortly after.“Her leg was severed in the accident,” he said.The child was taken to the Annapolis Royal Collaborative Clinic, a 24-hour clinic with emergency care, where she was stabilized.She was then transported to a causeway that spans the Annapolis River, which is blocked off and used as a landing pad in emergencies, police said. The girl was airlifted to the IWK children’s hospital in Halifax.Police are continuing to investigate the incident, but Miller said there is no suspicion of criminal activity and charges will likely not be laid.RCMP Cpl. Dione Canning said traffic investigators were on the scene Thursday to investigate the accident.Miller said it drives home just how dangerous farming can be.The Canadian Agricultural Injury Reporting service said in a 2013 news release that an average of 13 children die every year as a result of agricultural incidents in Canada, with more suffering from injuries.Two years ago, three children in central Alberta died after they were playing on a truck loaded with canola at a rural property east of Rocky Mountain House when they were buried by the seed.last_img read more

New video series takes consumers to the farm

first_imgCALGARY (660 NEWS) – A new web series called Real Farm Lives has been launched aimed at showing consumers what goes on down on the farm.A survey from the Canadian Centre for Food Integrity shows 93 per cent of Canadians have little to no knowledge of where their food comes from. The series looks at the daily routines of three farm families from across the country.Madison Englot, who farms with her dad, mom and two brothers near Montmartre, Saskatchewan felt this was an excellent opportunity to contribute to the industry.The Universty of Saskatchewan student says this will help clear up misconceptions about how food is produced and show consumers who they are as farm families.“I really think us as farmers need to stand up and really promote who we are as people, we’re part of this industry and eating the same food we are producing,” said Englot.Chris Renwick farms with his family close to Wheatley in southern Ontario. The Renwicks have been working the land there for nearly 200 hundred years.He is hoping viewers will come away with an understanding that farmers are producing safe and nutritious food.“People understand why we are doing things and how we are doing things and hopefully that will help build more trust and build better relationships between rural and urban people,” said Renwick.CropLife Canada is the organization that put it all together.President and CEO Pierre Petelle points to the survey from the Canadian Centre for Food Integrity.“That was the genesis of it to try and reach average Canadians through average farm families and have an opportunity to share their story.”He said it was completely unscripted and it was incredible just to watch the excitement and pride that the farm family displayed while doing their regular routines.“It’s really about creating that connection between non-farm families and farm families and showing them that they really aren’t that much different than themselves and the trials and tribulations that go into producing the food that we enjoy,” said Petelle.To see the web series click here.last_img read more

Canadian astronaut David SaintJacques flaunts ties to the Arctic during QA with

first_imgLindsay RichardsonAPTN NewsStudents at a school in Umiujaq in northern Quebec got a special surprise on their last day of term – the chance to talk to an astronaut still in orbit.The satellite conversation between students at Kiluutaq School and astronaut David Saint-Jacques last Friday was thousands of kilometers in the making.Students prepared their questions in class earlier in the week, asking standard things like “why are you at the space station?” “How do you use the toilet?” “Is the internet faster in space?” “Do you see planes fly?”Some questions, however, were specifically related to the northern community of less than 500 people.“Can you see Umiujaq from space?” one student asked in French.“Yes, I can see Nunavik here from the window – it’s very easy to recognize Hudson Bay, the Lac Guillaume de l’Ile – one of the most beautiful places I’ve seen in my life,” Saint Jacques replied.“We can see it very well from space.”Saint Jacques used to be co-chief of medicine in nearby Puvirnituq.His wife, Dr. Veronique Morin, who moderated Friday’s Q&A session, was once a village doctor in Umiujaq.Together, the high school sweethearts share a love for Nunavik.“I think once you live in the north, the north lives within you, and David likes to say there’s a piece of the tundra with him on board the space station,” Morin explained.Even though he’s spent six months aboard the space station, cruising 480 kilometres above the earth while studying infectious diseases, Saint Jacques does in fact carry a piece of Quebec’s north with him on-board.It was a heartwarming revelation for one student – a young girl inquiring about an ivory ring made by her grandfather before she was born.Saint-Jacques raised his hand to the camera, showing off the white band still poised on his ring finger.“I’m wearing this ring was made by Daniel Kumarluk, and if you ask Dr. Morin, my wife, she has a very similar ring because this is the ring we used to get engaged and then to get married,” he explained. “So we have a little bit of Umiujaq with us throughout our life.”Saint-Jacques also took the opportunity to show off a sealskin cuff made by artist Victoria Okpik, and a pair of tiny artisanal mittens “for good luck.”“I brought a few souvenirs of my life in the Arctic with me up in space,” he said.“That was a really touching moment for everyone,” Dr. Morin explained after the Q&A. “You could feel the connection that people felt to David, and seeing a part of their own community being in space was, I think, a moment of awakening for many.”lrichardson@aptn.ca@sentimtllast_img read more

UN welcomes agreement on final voters list in Côte dIvoire

On Monday, the Ivorian members of the Standing Consultative Framework – namely President Laurent Gbagbo, Prime Minister Guillaume Soro, and the heads of two political parties – reached an agreement on the list.The UN mission, known as UNOCI, “trusts that it will lead to the establishment of a final voters’ list and the holding of presidential elections as planned,” according to a press release issued today in Abidjan.The presidential polls were supposed to have been held as far back as 2005, but were repeatedly postponed. Elections are now scheduled to take place on 31 October.While preparations for the polls were on track up until late last year, they were interrupted in January. Political tensions began to mount after voter registration was suspended due to violence and Mr. Gbagbo dissolved the Government and the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) in February. The electoral process restarted after a new Government and Electoral Commission were established, but further delays were caused by differences on how to tackle the issue of fraud and a dispute over the appeals process on the provisional voters list.This week’s agreement, which UNOCI called a “remarkable achievement,” will have a “historic” effect, since millions of people will receive identity cards for the first time in their lives.The mission also urged all Ivorian political leaders to work to ensure a peaceful environment in the country before, during and after the polls.UNOCI noted that it will continue to help the people of Côte d’Ivoire find a durable solution to the crisis through, among other measures, the conduct of open, fair, free and transparent elections.The Security Council established the mission in 2004 to facilitate the peace process in the country, which became split by civil war in 2002 into a rebel-held north and Government-controlled south. 8 September 2010The agreement reached on the final list of voters for next month’s long-delayed presidential polls signals a major breakthrough in Côte d’Ivoire’s electoral process, the United Nations peacekeeping mission in the West African nation said today. read more

UN agency issues a hitech roadmap for managing disasters following Caribbean forum

The roadmap, adopted after a Forum in Jamaica organized by the UN’s International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the Commonwealth Telecommunication Organization (CTO), covers a wide range of issues including appropriate policies and common regional strategies aimed at mitigating the effects of disasters.“A number of initiatives are already off the ground,” said Cosmas Zavazava, Head of the ITU’s unit for Least Development Countries, Small Island Developing States and Emergency Telecommunications. “One of the key elements relates to the promotion of ‘emergency telecommunications readiness’ rather than to response and relief.”In 2005, a record number of 27 storms and as many as 13 hurricanes pounded the vulnerable Caribbean coastline. These included Hurricane Wilma, the most intense in recorded history, and Katrina, the most destructive which caused an estimated $50 billion in insured damage.Access to information is of paramount importance in the immediate aftermath of a disaster for relief agencies to coordinate search-and-rescue, medical intervention and rehabilitation efforts, the ITU said in a press release. There is an urgent need to establish effective and comprehensive communication links between the affected area, national disaster response facilities, and with the larger international community.“Information and communication technologies (ICTs) are the key to saving lives and property because they enable the collection and timely dissemination of accurate information on acts of nature,” said J. Paul Morgan, Chairman of the CTO, an international development partnership between Commonwealth and non-Commonwealth Governments, business and other organizations. read more

Sultan of Brunei Refutes Rumours of Bidding for Saharas New York and

first_imgHotel Plaza owned by Sahara Chief in New YorkReutersThe Sultan of Brunei Hassanal Bolkiah, has dismissed a report by The Wall Street Journal, which said that he offered the Sahara group $2 billion for Plaza Hotel in New York as well as Dream Hotel and Grosvenor House Hotel in London, a spokesperson said.”Neither His Majesty, the Brunei Investment Agency, nor the government of Brunei are involved in any way in the purchase of the Grosvenor House in London or the Plaza and Dream Downtown hotels in New York,” a spokesman at Bell Pottinger, acting on behalf of the Sultan of Brunei, wrote in an email.The Wall Street Journal mis-reported that an investment firm in Brunei has offered to pay $2 billion for the three hotels, which are currently owned by the Sahara chief Subrata Roy. Sultan of Brunei, Hassanal BolkiahReutersRoy has been dealing with the sale of the luxury hotels from his special high-tech room in Tihar Jail, where he is being held for over five months after failing to repay ₹20,000 crore to investors who were sold outlawed bonds. The court has ordered him to pay ₹10,000 crore to get out on bail.Sahara bought the Plaza Hotel for about $570 million in 2012.

How healthy is your Pasta

first_imgToday being World Health Day, let’s talk about something healthy and shove aside our regular favourites from the diet chart. For foodies who love to gorge into fried stuff and cheese, it’s time that you pull up your socks and head straight to a healthier path by ditching them. Among all other lip-smacking dishes, pasta finds a place in everybody’s list of favourite items. But are you sure that you are consuming the right pasta? “Most pastas available in Indian market are made of refined flour, and are rich in carbohydrates but no vitamins, minerals and fibre. Consuming large amount of such food can be harmful to health,” warns Dr Reeti Kapoor, Senior Manager-Dietetics, Venkateshwar Hospital. “Foods with empty carbs i.e only calories without any other nutritional benefits contribute to weight gain without having other health benefits. However, this doesn’t mean that pasta is inherently a bad food. If you love pasta, look for varieties that are made of whole grain which is rich in fibre and vitamins as well apart from carbohydrates,” adds Dr Kapoor. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfDr Himanshi Sharma, Sr Dietician, Indian Spinal Injuries Centre in the Capital says, “Eat pasta as a base for a healthy snack rich in veggies, lean protein and healthy fats. Choose red sauce instead of white sauce and add a lot of vegetables. To make a healthy dish, one can add herbs, lentils and healthy nuts (almonds and walnut). As of very high carbohydrates content which may cause fluctuations in blood sugar levels.”People who are allergic to gluten must stay away from pasta, since it may affect them with giddiness, and abdominal bloating. There are various types of pasta in terms of ingredients. A 100 per cent whole-grain pasta includes all the layers of the wheat kernel. Since nothing is removed during processing, whole-grain pasta contains more natural fibre and micronutrients than white pasta. They tend to have a chewier texture and “grainier” taste as compared to regular pasta. Blends like whole-wheat-and-white are perfect for families who are trying to make the switch to whole-grain but want to gradually adjust to its taste and texture. Some brands also have unique blends which include beans and lentils along with whole-grain. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive”Imported pasta for Indian consumers is made of 100 per cent Italian origin Durum Wheat Semolina (sooji) which makes it about 20-36 per cent higher in protein than other regularly used snacking products like instant noodles. Moreover, durum wheat pasta have negligible fat content, zero trans fats and zero cholesterol which leaves no room for it being treated as a fatty food,” explained Rajneesh Bhasin, MD, Borges India.The carbohydrates in pasta supply the body with glucose which is necessary for providing fuel to the brain and muscles. The National Pasta Association, USA notes that including the right kind of pasta in your diet can benefit your health. Many types of pasta are enriched with vitamins and minerals, so adding them to your diet may help you increase your intake.last_img read more

LeBron CP3 D Wade and Melo call for an end to police

first_imgIn an era where athletes rarely speak out, other than a comment to the TMZ cameras, a group of NBA superstars used the ESPY’s, last night, as a platform to speak out about the recent police shootings involving Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul and Dwyane Wade gave a moving statement about the recent controversial shootings and pledged to use their platform and influence to try to affect positive change. Wade called for people on all sides of the issue to take accountability.“The racial profiling has to stop. The shoot to kill mentality has to stop. Not seeing the value of black and brown bodies has to stop. But also, the retaliation has to stop. The endless gun violence in the places like Chicago, Dallas, and not to mention Orlando, has to stop. Enough.”The issue of police violence is an extremely polarizing issue, but it’s refreshing to see superstars using their platform to speak out on more than when their new sneaker comes out.The #ESPYs open with a powerful Black Lives Matter tribute: “We all have to do better” https://t.co/BQovoVN4pk https://t.co/GUuHW7ZwcM— Hollywood Reporter (@THR) July 14, 2016last_img read more

Repeated lowincome welfare applications are clogging the system

first_imgOf 2,500 applications currently under consideration for payment of guaranteed minimum income, some 1,600 are repeat applications, resulting in delays in processing, a labour ministry official said on Monday.Phanos Kouroufexis told the Cyprus News Agency the ministry was looking at measures and procedures to address the problem of recurring claims, and also better serve those receiving benefits.Many applications regarding the minimum guaranteed income are rejected because the applicants’ revenue is above the criteria set, or they have bank deposits or because they don’t show up at jobs the ministry sends them to. Following the rejection, the same people file a new application the next day forcing the authorities to process the documents anew and reject it again. Rejection is again followed by a fresh application, clogging the system and delaying assistance to those who really need it.According to Kouroufexis, a number of people have filed applications six times in the four years since the GMI was introduced, despite the rejections.Kouroufexis said around 25,000 cases, most of them single – pensioners, people with disabilities — are beneficiaries in 2018, while three years ago the number was 36,000. The decrease is the result of a drop in the number of unemployed.Kouroufexis also said applications for child allowances were being processed and those who filed in August will receive their money in late November.Applicants who sent submissions towards the end of September will be paid at the end of the year, while later submissions, from October and November, will be dealt with in January and February respectively.He noted that over 65,000 applications are submitted annually for the child allowance.Kouroufexis said December allowances to minimum guaranteed income recipients, people with low pensions, single parents, and people who qualify for child allowances will be received before Christmas as in previous years.If someone submits an application in November, it will obviously not be possible to pay them the sum in December but in January, he said.You May LikeInsured Nation – Auto Insurance QuotesNew Rule in Rowland Heights, California Leaves Drivers FumingInsured Nation – Auto Insurance QuotesUndoPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoThe Deniz boat incident showed clearly the intentions of the Turkish sideUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
