“I think that we’re in this transition, hopefully, transformation, to be able to get more and more communities out from under the Indian Act so that there isn’t this question of who speaks for the community, as they choose a governance of their own making,” she says.Coastal GasLink is planning to run its pipeline from northeastern B.C. to LNG Canada’s export facility on the coast in Kitimat. The estimated cost of the terminal and infrastructure is $40 billion.While Coastal GasLink says it has signed benefits-sharing agreements with all 20 elected First Nations councils along the pipeline route, five hereditary clan chiefs say they are “adamantly opposed” and the project has no authority without their consent.The B.C. Supreme Court granted a temporary injunction to the company instructing pipeline opponents who set up a gate along a construction access road to remove their blockade. RCMP enforced the injunction on Jan. 7, arrested 14 people, and sparked protests across Canada and internationally.The project is within British Columbia’s boundaries, so Bennett says she has not been in contact with the Wet’suwet’en hereditary clan chiefs about the ongoing dispute. But she says it points to the urgency of having decision-making processes in place where the community feels represented by its leaders.“This is a wholly B.C. project with a B.C. court having allowed the injunction and so we are in a difficult place in terms of how decisions get taken and how urgent it is to be moving forward,” Bennett says. The Wet’suwet’un were part of the landmark Delgamuukw Supreme Court of Canada decision in 1997 that ruled Aboriginal title does exist in B.C. The ruling said governments must consult First Nations whose title rights are affected.Bennett says the federal government is working to assist First Nations in building self-governance capacity, including through the new “Nation Rebuilding Program.”She says the Indian Act, which imposed the elected band council structure on First Nations, had the effect of breaking up larger nations into “villages.”The program is a way to counter that by recognizing self-defined Indigenous groups linked culturally, linguistically, geographically or along historical treaty lines. In the past week, the government has announced 25 projects in British Columbia totalling $4.75 million, she says.As an example, it is giving $600,000 to the Carrier Sekani Tribal Council in the B.C. Interior “to rebuild their governance and hereditary structures.” Work will include developing community history books and workshops on governance, roles and responsibilities, clan systems and hereditary systems.Bennett defended the hereditary system against criticism that it is undemocratic, saying there have always been traditional checks and balances for hereditary leaders.“When you talk to the best knowledge keepers there were always ways of dealing with people who were not serving their communities well, these systems were in place long before the settlers showed up,” she says. Bennett points to Nunavut as an example where land-claim settlements have made consent for industry projects more straightforward.“There is a proper regional approach to major projects. The good projects get approved really fast, the bad projects get rejected really fast,” she says.While the Crown historically acquired land from many First Nations across the country by signing treaties, only 14 treaties on Vancouver Island had been signed by the time B.C. joined Confederation in 1871, and Aboriginal title to the rest of the province was left unresolved.It means some nations have never ceded their territories and many are in the process of negotiating modern-day treaties. Eight modern treaties have been ratified. VANCOUVER, B.C. – Canada’s minister of Crown-Indigenous relations is pointing her finger at the Indian Act for creating a gridlock in northern British Columbia where some hereditary clan chiefs say a liquefied natural gas pipeline doesn’t have their consent.Carolyn Bennett would not say whether she believes the hereditary chiefs of the Wet’suwet’en First Nation have jurisdiction over the 22,000 square kilometres they claim as their traditional territory, saying that it is up to each community to determine its leadership structure.But she says the situation is an example of why the federal government is working to increase First Nations capacity for self-governance, including a new funding program to rebuild hereditary structures.
Lucknow: Accusing the BJP of indulging in “despicable politics”, Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati, Sunday alleged that the ruling party had conspired to field Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar Azad from Varanasi Lok Sabha seat to divide the Dalit votes. Azad had announced earlier this month that he will contest the general elections from Varanasi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s constituency. “With the ill-intention of dividing Dalit votes & taking advantage, the BJP has conspired to field Bhim Army chief Chandrashekhar from Varanasi LS seat. This organisation was formed under BJP conspiracy & with its anti-Dalit mindset, it is now indulging in despicable politics,” Mayawati said in a tweet.

It is very imperative in the national interest to dislodge autocratic, despotic anti-Dalit, OBC & minorities BJP from power. Pls ensure no vote goes waste. My Appeal,” she added. Later, in a statement, the BSP chief said, “Each and every vote of the Dalits is important to remove the arrogant, autocratic, casteist and communal BJP from power. This should not be allowed to go waste, so that one regrets in future and life does not become hell.” Azad launched his Lok Sabha campaign with a roadshow in Varanasi on Saturday. He accused Modi of only favouring the rich and “harassing” small borrowers and poor. The Dalit leader declared at the roadshow that the countdown to Modi’s defeat had begun. read more
CAIRO – Reactions to the appearance of veiled woman on TV varied between welcome and condemnation.A veiled Egyptian woman has stirred up a hornet’s nest inside Egypt by appearing on TV and singing rap songs.Reactions to the appearance of the woman on a Saudi Arabian channel as part of a reality talent show called “Arabs Got Talent” varied between welcome and condemnation.Although Mayam Mahmoud made her appearance in the show about a week ago, reactions are still lively and strong.“The headgear makes it necessary for women to abide by a specific code of conduct,” Nabil Hussein, a cyberspace activist, wrote on his Facebook page. “Singing, and rapping in particular, contradicts with the required conduct.”Rapping is a form of speaking or chanting rhyming lyrics that occupies a gray area between speech, prose, poetry and singing. It is closely associated with hip hop music and this is perhaps why rapping by a veiled woman is provoking the ire of some people in the predominantly conservative Egyptian society.Mahmoud, now 18, says she has started rapping since she was eight. She says she had joined a school especially to learn this art form.“The main idea about rap is the message the song seeks to convey to listeners,” Mahmoud wrote on her Facebook page.When she appeared on the program, Mahmoud focused in her song on social ailments, such as gender discrimination and sexual harassment. She expressed her rejection of the presence of these phenomena through her fast-paced song.Mahmoud says on her page that she seeks to make success, blending rap singing as an art form with her Islamic appearance and conduct. And she managed to win support.“I don’t see a problem with a veiled woman rapping,” wrote Hagar Hamdi, another Facebook user, commenting on the angry reaction that accompanied Mahmoud’s appearance on the show.“The Islamic religion never calls for backwardness.” read more
By Ahlam Ben SagaRabat – American Actress Meryl Streep appearance in a caftan in,“The Post”stirs online buzz in the U.S.Marked by an ‘70s atmosphere, Steven Spielberg’s film “The Post” features an unexpected item which won the good opinion of critics: Adorning a caftan, a 69-year-old regal-looking Streep appeared in a scene regarded by viewers as “pivotal.” She was dressed in an elegant “retirement gown”—an ivory-gold Caftan made of Indian silk fabric. Streep portrayed “Katharine Graham,” The Washington Post’s first female publisher.Ann Roth, the caftan’s designer, seemed surprised to receive messages from people praising her fabric choice. “I got a text from an unknown person saying the caftan was the greatest thing they’d ever seen […] but caftans aren’t that unusual—they are everywhere,” she told The Hollywood Reporter.Following the release of “The Post” on January 12th, 2018, fans of the caftan design expressed their admiration on social media:Meryl Streep’s magnificent caftan in The Post makes her look like the angel from Nancy Meyers’ christmas tree came to life to teach us a lesson about the first amendment pic.twitter.com/ELwtNMOU28— Britt Hayes (@MissBrittHayes) December 3, 2017For real, where can I find that fab #MerylStreep ivory and gold #caftan from @ThePostMovie— eileen scully ?? (@eemscully) January 29, 2018“Caftan” (alternative spelling:“kaftan”) was originally worn by Ottoman sultans, but due to the Ottoman Empire’s strong global influence in the last few centuries, it has been adopted by different cultures throughout the world (for example, in northern and western Africa).Caftan reached Morocco after its spread through Andalusia which first adopted it in the 9th century.Morocco later refashioned and added its unique touch to the caftan, which is now known as “Moroccan Caftan.”Today, caftans are embraced in the Arab world of fashion, and are mainly worn by women during events like weddings. read more

JOHN’S, N.L. – Mining giant Vale won a court application Monday to prosecute striking workers if they block access to a new nickel processing site, upping the ante in a nasty labour dispute in southern Newfoundland.What started Thursday as a wildcat strike by about 90 crane operators entered its fifth day as the company and workers traded accusations of intimidation and ill will.About 1,000 workers — half the usual labour force — went back to work Monday in Long Harbour, N.L., north of Placentia on the Avalon Peninsula, after union leaders urged them to respect a collective agreement signed in 2009.The rest stayed away in part, Vale says, because striking workers have snarled traffic on the road leading to the site.However, a report from VOCM Radio late on Monday said the operating engineers who had been picketing have now decided to end their strike.VOCM reported that Gus Doyle, the president of the Resource Development Trades Council — an umbrella group representing 16 construction unions — said the strike had ended and all of the workers were going to return to work on Tuesday.Doyle wasn’t available for comment by telephone or email.Roy Hawco, a union spokesman for the crane operators, said the picket lines of the workers he represents came down late Monday.He said he can’t guarantee all of the crane operators will return to work, but that they’ve ended their protest near the plant.Company spokesman Bob Carter said production could only partially resume without the crane operators as the dispute costs Vale several million dollars a day.Carter also said he’s heard that some returning workers got threatening emails, text messages or phone calls. He did not provide examples and Hawco said he wasn’t aware of such tactics.The company spokesman said the strike is hindering construction of the nickel plant.“It’s disrupting our busines and our ability to get this project built,” Carter said in an interview. “Those who are not returning to work and are blocking access to our site are in defiance of the court order, and we need to get that remedied.”Carter was referring to a provincial Supreme Court injunction last week ordering striking workers to cease and desist.RCMP Sgt. Wayne Newell confirmed that police, who have so far been on hand to help clear traffic congestion, will be watching the situation in Long Harbour early Tuesday.Hawco said he doesn’t support the walkout. Still, he stressed that labour relations at the site are toxic with unresolved grievances dating back to 2009, along with anger over changes that affected offsite living allowances.“We as a union do not condone what’s going on out there,” he said in an interview. “But when you’re drove, there’s only so much you can take. When you’ve got issues ongoing from 2009 … this is what happens. Eventually, everything blows up.”Striking workers are “dug in” near the site and many are just as angry with their union leaders as they are with the company, Hawco said.“I think the mood out there is to fire everyone — including me.”Hawco said workers are accusing Vale of clawing back the living allowance paid to those who live more than 100 kilometres away and rent accommodations outside the work camp.Carter denied any clawbacks and said reductions that may result from scheduling changes stem from adjustments that the unions requested.“The living allowance that is currently in place is in line with the collective agreement,” he said.Hawco said rumours are flying that workers being recruited from outside the province are being paid more to help fill a shortage of skilled trades. He also said safety issues are regularly raised at liaison meetings for the 16 unions working at the site, “mostly strains or slips and falls.”Carter said a collective agreement signed with 93 per cent approval by all 16 unions fixes wage rates for all workers. He said the company is looking at a looming labour shortage for various trades as the peak construction period looms for the $3.6-billion project, but has not yet hired temporary foreign staff.Carter also defended Vale’s safety record at Long Harbour.“I can tell you that our safety onsite is exemplary. We have a better safety record on that site than is the norm in the construction industry.”Provincial Labour Minister Terry French was careful not to pick sides but urged workers to handle disputes through proper channels.“This is very, very important to the people of Newfoundland and Labrador,” he said in an interview. “We’ve got this development, of course, but there’s many more coming. And you know, I hope we don’t send a message to everyone that we can’t find labour stability, because it’s so important on these major projects.”The Progressive Conservative government will decide later this year whether to sanction the Muskrat Falls hydroelectric development in Labrador, a megaproject that’s expected to cost more than $6.2 billion and require extensive skilled labour.The province is also at odds with ExxonMobil, the oil giant leading a consortium of partners developing the Hebron oilfield off Newfoundland. At issue is construction of a $100-million piece of the massive production platform and whether the province has the capacity to handle the work without delaying first oil expected in 2017. read more

While there is not much reason to be excited about the games that take advantage of the Microsoft Kinect device on the Xbox 360, some of the creative ways that devs are putting it to use for other purposes revives hope in the product. A noteworthy example is how a research group from Meiji University and AIST has used the SDK for the device to make giving video slide presentations easier. Using the Kinect to detect the presence of a human, it allows the presenter to interact with the content displayed on screen. Using gestures, items in the presentation can be moved, slid off screen and even be re-sized using pinch to zoom. The best function however, is that it can rearrange text that is being projected so that it does not get blocked by the presenter.Programmed in C# using the Kinect SDK, this hack does not actually use PowerPoint for the slides, but Excel as coordinates of the objects comes into play. The Kinect device delivers gesture and location information to the spreadsheet, which then reacts and moves the screen objects in response. The result is a dynamic presentation style that allows interaction with content, which of course has endless possibilities. Motivational speakers across the land will be able to jump and jive around stage while making their content do the same.With the commercial SDK for the Kinect being released next year, it is a sure bet that we will see some sort of consumer software that has this capability built into it. Perhaps even PowerPoint itself in the next Office version. The full video of the demo is below.via Engadget read more

When it comes to local cuisine, many Washingtonians would argue that there’s nothing more D.C. than the sweet, tangy flavor of mumbo sauce. Capice Faulcon, head chef at Black Squirrel in the Adams Morgan neighborhood in the Northwest quadrant of the city has made it his mission to elevate the standard carry-out sauce with marijuana, and in doing so, he plans to make a major imprint on the local culinary scene.Chef Capice Faulcon has made a living by selling Cannabis infused food products. (Photo by Micha Green)“You know mumbo sauce is technically not really from D.C. It’s from Chicago. But it basically came to D.C… and has become that symbolized sauce that people love about D.C. And I wanted to bring my version of mumbo sauce,” Faulcon told the AFRO.Faulcon settled in D.C. from Richmond, Va. a decade ago and has been working his way up, and paying his dues at local restaurants, such as Copycat, a Chinese food restaurant located on H Street in Northwest D.C.“When I became the chef at Copycat, what inspired me was being in a Chinese restaurant working with the dumplings, skewers, and baos, and I was like, ‘Why can’t we have chicken wings here?’ So I studied mumbo sauce,” Faulcon said.Faulcon said he began selling the mumbo wings at Copycat every Friday, after he perfected sauce, but due to difference about the vision of the restaurant and menu, he had to stop selling them.“I never gave up on my sauce,” Faulcon said. “After leaving Copycat, and just being in this business, sometimes you get tired of working and not having your own thing… so it was always in my agenda to have something that I can say was mine in D.C.- and it was mumbo sauce.”As Head Chef at Black Squirrel, Faulcon brought mumbo wings to the menu, which are a big hit, even with the growing popularity of the special sauce at restaurants much nicer than local carryouts.“Everybody knows the simple steps of what a mumbo sauce is basically, Ketchup, Sugar, Vinegar, Paprika, Water, and Hot Sauce. I switched mine. I wanted to be more Asian fusion with D.C. flare,” he said. In addition, to mixing the ingredients, Faulcon slow cooks the sauce for about two-and-a-half hours, keeping the temperature lower than 200 degrees.Still, with a tasty product and positive reviews, Faulcon felt like he had not made his mark in D.C. cuisine.“We had no money. We were basically taking paychecks for rent… and I told them, ‘This is going to be the symbol of our company,’” the 34-year-old said when he presented the idea of infusing marijuana in mumbo sauce to his friends.Calling the business, Highly Creative, Faulcon, along with his business partners, Maddie Fanning and Dani Ramirez, launched their mumbo sauce product on Halloween of 2017. Since its launch date, the sauce has become a favorite among local cannabis connoisseurs. According to Faulcon, the business makes around 2,000-4,000 sale per week.“D.C. has made me the guy who has the infused mumbo sauce. The first to do it in the city,” Faulcon said.Along with mumbo sauce, the company also sells edible treats such as gummies, truffles, drinks, chips, weed pops and infused candy bars. Faulcon, said he hopes that people look beyond what they know about cannabis culture when considering his products.“We’re not hippies,” he said. “We’re just people who enjoy the quality of life with marijuana.”Further, Faulcon said his business means even more as a Black man.“It’s already labeled for Black men to be murderers, and killers, and thugs… We have pride, we have ambitions, we have things we want to go out and get, but we’re so limited because they tell us that we’re limited,” he said.While it’s not legal to sell infused mumbo sauce and other treats, Faulcon attends marijuana events where the product can be gifted. For now, cannabis enthusiasts over 21 can go to Black Squirrel Thursdays for their weekly event where Highly Creative products are gifted and displayed.“Never be scared to come out to these events because at the end of the day it’s about getting the medication that you need, Faulcon told the AFRO. read more

He will no longer be on public display to avoid him stress.Kivú was born in captivity at La Habana Zoo in Cuba. The zoo donated the cub and his partner Kariba to the Simón Bolívar Zoo in 1999. Kariba died of cancer in 2011. Kivú’s conditions at the zoo were criticized for years, with a crescendo of opposition to his confinement earlier this year when he was visibly ill. Authorities ordered zoo administrators to improve his conditions or relocate him; after the administrators’ continued resistence, authorities entered the zoo Monday and removed Kivú to his new surroundings.Because Kivú spent so many years at his infamous San José zoo cage, experts are conducting a progressive adaptation process to his new environment. The Environment Ministry (MINAE) confirmed that Kivú the lion is successfully recovering at his new home, after being anesthetized to remove him from the Simón Bolívar Zoo in downtown San José on Monday.MINAE shared the first photos and videos of the 18-year-old lion inside a special enclosure at the Zoo Ave wildlife refuge in Alajuela province on Wednesday.Upon the lion’s arrival on Monday, experts took blood samples, X-rays and ultrasounds to fully assess the lion’s condition. Kivú is currently inside a containment area where biologists and veterinarians are evaluating his physical condition.They reported that he woke up normally and so far he has not shown any side effects from the anesthesia.
