Mom plans to give birth in secret as politicians hold emergency meeting

first_imgBrittany Hobson APTN NewsIndigenous leaders, provincial and territorial leaders and advocates are heading to Ottawa next week for an emergency meeting on child welfare where the overrepresentation of Indigenous children in care will be at the forefront of the conversations.Minister of Indigenous Services Jane Philpott called for the meeting last November. In a letter sent to her provincial and territorial counterparts she said the rate of Indigenous kids apprehended in Canada was the highest in the world. We have opportunities and resources to be able to do prevention at the community level Manitoba has the highest rate of newborn apprehensions in all of Canada Minister of Families Scott Fielding said the province recognizes changes must be made to the system.“We’ve got a big problem. That’s why we’re taking it head on as a government,” said Fielding.The new reform will see incentives and subsidies for foster parents who wish to become permanent guardians.The province also formed a seven-person committee in December to review the current legislature and suggest changes that could be made to address the staggering number of kids in care.But the mother giving birth in secret says more needs to be done.“I think these changes are going to impact how the system operates and how foster families operate,” she said. “And that’s not enough.” In Manitoba apprehension rates are the highest in the country. It is estimated a newborn child is apprehended every day.The situation has become so dire one expectant mother has decided to give birth in secret.“I’m feeling that I have to protect this birth from people who have the potential to sever my bond with my child,” said the woman.Sitting in her home in Winnipeg she showed APTN News her home birthing kit. She cannot be identified because her teenage daughter is currently a ward of the province.Two years ago she gave birth to another child in hospital. She said at the time she was forced to fill out paperwork detailing her prior involvement with Child and Family Services along with her income status.She now worries her involvement will serve as a red flag.“Now I’m sitting here two years later and I’m going to have another baby and I don’t want to be in that building when it happens because I’m afraid they’re not going to let me leave,” she said.Cora Morgan is the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs’ Child and Family Advocate for First Nations. PHOTO: APTNFirst Nations Family Advocate Cora Morgan isn’t surprised to hear of this woman’s plan.“We hear it every day because you know Manitoba has the highest rate of newborn apprehensions in all of Canada,” said Morgan.Manitoba also has the highest number of Indigenous kids in care. According to the province there are approximately 11,000 kids in care with 90 per cent of those being Indigenous.These numbers will be the focus of the emergency two-day meeting next week. The meeting is set to take place on Jan. 25 and 26.In a release Minister Philpott’s office said the goal of the meeting is to identify shared priorities and a path forward in reforming Indigenous child and family services with distinctions based approaches to put the needs of children and families first.Morgan said she hopes to see some significant changes to the child welfare system after next week’s meeting.“After 150 years of the theft of our children that there is a meaningful commitment to First Nations asserting jurisdiction over children and families,” she said.“And that we have opportunities and resources to be able to do prevention at the community level outside of our current system.”The Manitoba government has recently implemented a reform on the child welfare system.last_img read more

Two Men Arrested in Marrakech for Homosexuality

Casablanca — The red city again makes the news for homosexuality-related arrests.A 70-year-old Spanish man and a Moroccan citizen in his 20s were arrested on Thursday, November 24, on charges of homosexuality. The men were caught laying in the same hotel bed by a cleaning lady, who immediately notified hotel management, which then contacted the police, reports AlYaoum24.According to the Aswat Collective, a Moroccan organization fighting for human rights, the Spanish national was released while the Moroccan man still remains in custody of local authorities. In regards to the case, Omar Arbib, member of Marrakech’s Moroccan Association for Human Rights, told HuffPost that “this kind of arrest needs to stop in Morocco.” “It’s not normal. These are two adults who should be allowed to exercise their independence, but Moroccan law states that they risk up to three years in prison,” adds Arbib.In Morocco, homosexuality is punishable by up to three years in jail and a fine of up to 1200 dirhams. Last month, a similar case was widely publicized. Two girls, Hajar and Sanae, aged 16 and 17, were reported to the police after a family friend had seen them kissing on a Marrakech terrace. After a few days of detention, they were granted temporary release on November 1. The two minors are set to receive their verdict tomorrow.Hajar and Sanae’s arrest got a lot of attention from Moroccan and international media. Leïla Slimani, the French-Moroccan writer who was recently awarded the prestigious literary prize, the ‘Prix Goncourt,’ publicly spoke out earlier this month against the girls’ arrest. In an interview on the French TV show, “C à Vous,” Slimani stated that Article 489 “takes away the dignity of citizens and contributes to their humiliation.”The United Nations Human Rights Committee has urged Morocco to decriminalize homosexuality, as reported earlier this month. Nevertheless, given the controversy of the issue in the majority-Muslim country, it is unlikely that the law will change anytime soon. read more

UN agency set to open up new safety corridor for Sudanese refugees

The refugees will move from two villages on the border, near Birak, to the new camp at Kounoungo, 70 kilometres inside Chad. Nearly 4,300 refugees have already been moved to the first two camps since the operation began in mid-January. Some 110,000 people have crossed the border into Chad to escape the conflict between rebel movements, militias and the Government of Sudan, while an estimated 1 million people have been displaced inside Darfur. The daily convoys to Touloum are on hold for a few days to allow the registration of the dozens of refugees who have come to the site on their own in recent days, UNHCR spokesman Kris Janowski told a news briefing in Geneva. The refugees walked to Touloum as information quickly spread of a transit centre where they could feel secure and have access to water and food. With lack of water is still a major challenge throughout the region, a UNHCR emergency airlift continues bringing some 256 tons of relief supplies for the refugees. The UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and its partners, meanwhile, are also trucking water to camps and constructing wells there. Today, UNICEF chief Carol Bellamy issued a strong call for an end to fighting in Darfur, saying the Sudanese Government must “enforce the rule of law and take aggressive steps to protect civilians.” She also called on the warring parties to agree to an immediate ceasefire and ensure safe access for aid agencies helping the displaced. UNICEF’s representative in Sudan, Joanna Van Gerpen, said those who have fled their homes are living in “shocking” conditions marked by insufficient food, poor sanitation, scarce water and crowded conditions which can foster the spread of disease. read more

Several worthy players hung around the race for large portions of the season, including Paul George and Nikola Jokic. But in the end, there were two: Giannis Antetokounmpo and James Harden — each of whom has several arguments working in his favor.Antetokounmpo is the best player on the best team1By record, at least. in the league, and he led the 60-win Bucks to the best defense and fourth-best offense in the NBA. He averaged an unheard of 27.7 points, 12.5 rebounds, 5.9 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.5 blocks per game. He is also one of the best defenders in the league — a top-tier candidate for Defensive Player of the Year.Harden, meanwhile, carried an offensive burden unlike any in modern NBA history. His 40.5 percent usage rate is the second-highest of all time. He finished the season averaging 36.1 points per game, eighth-most in league history and the most since Michael Jordan ticked off 37.1 per game in 1987. Harden boosted his deep attempts far beyond what previously seemed either possible or reasonable, taking 13.2 triples per game and connecting on them at a 37 percent rate.2He made 378 shots from beyond the arc, second only to only 2016 Stephen Curry in NBA history.Really, though, the argument between the two players is less about who had the better season and more about the definition of “valuable.” Is it just the best player in the league? Is it the best player on the best team? Is it the player whose performance was most outstanding, whatever you decide that means? Is it the player whose team needs him the most? Is it some combination of all of those things, as well as a few others? Different players, coaches, executives, fans and media members have different definitions.What if we took the word “valuable” as literally as possible, though, and tried to identify the player who provided his team with the greatest bang for its buck throughout this season? After all, what’s more valuable than performing at a level that far outstrips your salary, allowing your team to spend those surplus dollars on more talent elsewhere?The first step to answering this question is to quantify the dollar value of a win in the NBA. There were 1,230 games played this season, which means there were 1,230 wins up for grabs. According to Basketball-Reference.com, NBA teams handed out more than $3.6 billion in salary this year. Dividing that figure by 1,230 means that a single win was valued at $2,949,908.82.We can then turn to ESPN’s Real-Plus Minus and specifically RPM wins, a stat that uses a player’s RPM and his possessions played to estimate his contribution to the number of his team’s wins. Not all players qualified for the RPM leaderboard, so there was a slight shortfall of wins produced by the 514 players who did qualify. We applied a multiplier to each of those player’s totals in order to account for the shortfall. Then, we multiplied the dollar value of a win by the number of adjusted RPM wins each player produced to pinpoint the dollar value of that player’s production. Subtracting his actual 2018-19 salary from that number yields a surplus, meeting our goal of identifying the best bang-for-buck player in the league this season. 13Ben Simmons8.398.9526.416.4319.97 7Danny Green11.6012.3836.5110.0026.51 Pascal Siakam led the NBA in most bang for the buckNBA players by value provided to their teams above their salaries as measured by Real Plus-Minus (RPM) wins, 2018-19 season 10Kemba Walker10.5611.2733.2412.0021.24 16Nikola Jokic14.0114.9544.1024.6119.49 11De’Aaron Fox8.398.9526.415.4720.94 It should come as no surprise that both Antetokounmpo and Harden ranked among the league leaders in both the value of their production and the surplus value they provided their teams. The Rockets received more than $27 million in surplus value on Harden; the Bucks got nearly $23 million in surplus on Antetokounmpo. Neither player, though, led the league in surplus value. Harden ranked sixth, while Antetokounmpo ranked ninth (and second on his own team).3Brook Lopez, who produced $32.77 million in value compared with a paltry $3.38 million salary, held that crown. Fellow MVP candidates George ($30.22 million) and Jokic ($19.49 million) also ranked highly in surplus value, but again, neither of them led the league.4Though George did lead the league with a production value of $60.78 million. Instead, the league leader was do-it-all Raptors forward Pascal Siakam, with a surplus value of nearly $36 million.Siakam is quite good, obviously, but he’s not nearly as good as the MVP types just yet. By any traditional MVP definition, he doesn’t really fit. But we’re not looking for a traditionally defined MVP here — just the player whose value most exceeded his salary. And that’s why Siakam makes perfect sense.Siakam broke out in a huge way this season, emerging as both the favorite for Most Improved Player and a candidate for one of the All-NBA teams. He averaged 16.9 points, 6.9 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.6 combined steals and blocks per game while getting to the line 3.8 times a night and canning 36.9 percent of his shots from beyond the arc. He is a wonderful defender, capable of handling himself both in space and on the block, wreaking havoc in passing lanes and containing ball-handlers off the dribble. He also served as the point man in the Raptors’ league-best zone defense and the one of the primary drivers of their defense-to-offense transition attack. Toronto outscored its opponents by 10.7 points per 100 possessions with Siakam on the floor, per NBA.com, the eighth-best figure among the 353 players who appeared in at least 40 games. He carried the Raptors in several games when Kyle Lowry and/or Kawhi Leonard sat out because of injuries or load management; he was also a rotation mainstay, playing in 80 of 82 games, all but one of which he started.And Siakam did all of this while drawing a salary of just $1,544,951, as a former No. 27 overall pick playing in the third year of his rookie-scale contract. He produced like a star — Siakam ranked 11th in production value per RPM wins — while being paid less than 391 other players in the league. Add it all up, and he produced by far the most surplus value of any player this season, with the difference between him and No. 2 Nikola Vucevic slightly exceeding the difference between Vucevic and No. 7 Danny Green, Siakam’s teammate in Toronto. Considering that neither Siakam nor Green is even Toronto’s best player, it’s no wonder the Raptors are among the favorites to represent the Eastern Conference in this year’s NBA Finals.5Provided they can bounce back against the Magic.If that is indeed how these playoffs play out, Siakam will almost surely have played a valuable role — maybe not the “most valuable” by popular definitions, but one that far exceeds the value of his paycheck. * RPM wins were adjusted to account for players who did not qualify for the RPM leaderboard.Numbers may not add up because of rounding.Sources: ESPN, Basketball-Reference.com 6James Harden18.2619.4857.4730.4327.04 2Nikola Vucevic13.9114.8443.7812.7531.03 12Rudy Gobert13.7914.7143.4023.2420.16 read more

Latest climate pledges demonstrate need for cleaner coal technology

first_imgThe World Coal Association (WCA) Chief Executive Benjamin Sporton says emissions reduction pledges by a range of countries in the lead-up to the COP21 climate negotiations in Paris demonstrate the need for more investment in low emission coal technology. Many more countries will be making their pledges in the coming months.“Clearly many countries are making ambitious commitments in the lead up to Paris, but without significant investment in low emission coal technologies those commitments are going to be very difficult to achieve,” Sporton said.“Coal is forecast to play a significant role in the world’s energy mix for decades to come and so investment in low emission coal technologies, such as high efficiency low emissions power generation and carbon capture and storage, is critical to achieving global climate objectives.”According to the International Energy Agency’s (IEA) New Policies Scenario, coal’s share of the world energy mix will only drop from 29% today to 24% in 2040 as world energy demand increases by 40%. The same IEA data also shows coal-fired power generation is forecast to grow 33% over the same period – even with ambitious targets for deployment of renewable energy.Demand for coal is primarily driven by Asia where countries are using it to provide affordable, reliable electricity to power their economies. IEA data shows the demand for coal in Southeast Asia is expected to grow 4.8% year-on-year through to 2035. Electricity from coal in India is expected to more than double by 2040 and will continue to grow in China.“Some commentators point to the recent easing in coal demand to argue that China is moving away from coal when in fact most respected analysis from the IEA and others shows that coal will still provide the majority of China’s electricity for decades to come. What many commentators also choose to ignore is that to bring electricity to the 300 million people who don’t have it in India will require a huge growth in energy from all sources, including coal,” Sporton said.“Peaking and then reducing emissions requires action now to ensure the most advanced coal technologies are built. Modern high efficiency coal plants produce 35% less CO2 than older technology and are a key first step on the pathway to carbon capture and storage.”Sporton said countries Intended Nationally Determined Contributions should include calls for support for low emission coal technologies. “The Paris outcome should support a mechanism to make sure those countries who are going to use coal are supported to use it in the cleanest way possible, this includes support through the Green Climate Fund and equal treatment for carbon capture and storage alongside other low emission technologies.”The WCA has recently launched a concept for an international Platform to Accelerate Coal Efficiency (PACE). The PACE platform would support developing and emerging economies move away from low efficiency coal-fired power generation toward modern high efficiency low emission plants.“Despite what some people might wish, coal isn’t going anywhere anytime soon so if we are to achieve global climate ambitions and have a meaningful deal in Paris it must support more investment in low emission coal,” Sporton said.last_img read more

Weve told children were here for them 247 if charity crisis continues

first_img Monica; “What am I to say to the little girl that rings after every chemo session, or to the little boy that rings after he’s been abused?”— ISPCC Childline (@ISPCCChildline) May 27, 2014 She commented that children are now under immense pressure and “take on a lot of adult worries”. “I actually got my daughter back,” she said, adding that she was concerned about what kind of a future would be ahead if any of these vital services have to be cut.“While everybody else is kind of being looked after with the recession, and you know, looking at everything else happening outside, we can’t forget the children,” she said.Childline can be reached on 1800 66 66 66 or online.Originally posted at 12:50.Read: Childline is at “breaking point” as donations continue to plummet>Read: Abuse, violence, mental health: Children in Ireland called for help 664,000 times last year> Source: ISPCC Childline/Twitter Source: ISPCC Childline/Twitter Source: Michelle Hennessy/TheJournal.ieRose Cross, who sought help from the ISPCC with her daughter, said she “would not be the child she is today” without the charity.center_img Updated 22:55THE ISPCC HAS said today that it may be forced to cut Childline operating hours if the drop in donations due to the Rehab and CRC scandals continues.Speaking ahead of the charity’s AGM this morning, Caroline O’Sullivan, Director of Services, said there was an “immediate dramatic drop” in income when the controversies arose and income is now down 20 per cent so far this year.Childline costs €3.8 million a year to run and most of this has to be raised through donations. Some 664,000 calls were made to the helpline last year.“If this trend continues, we are not going to be in a position to provide the services that we are at the moment,” she told reporters. “We have cut salaries, we have cut costs, we have cut all administrative costs, we’ve had redundancies and we really have nowhere else to go in terms of cost savings so out only place now is services.”She said the majority of children call the helpline after 6pm and if the charity can not raise more money, the now 24 hour service will have to close overnight because they don’t have volunteers available at that time so that is when costs are at their highest.“We’re looking at closing at 10 at night, when children are at their most vulnerable and very much alone and have nowhere,” she said.Monica Rowe, who is a Childline volunteer and fundraiser for the ISPCC, said this is the time when children “can get under the covers with the phone and be heard”, especially for children who are being abused. Rose quoting her daughter; “Working with the ISPCC helped me go from the darkness into the light”.— ISPCC Childline (@ISPCCChildline) May 27, 2014 Am I to say “You know something – put that hurt on hold – ring us when the service is actually open”? That appals me – the thought of it appals me.

Loan App Defect Risk Still Trending Down

first_img Share in Daily Dose, Headlines, News, Origination July 1, 2016 490 Views Loan Applications Loan Defects 2016-07-01 Seth Welborncenter_img Ethical issues with mortgage applications dropped in May, continuing a years-long downswing, according to the latest First American Loan Application Defect Index.The index, which estimates the frequency of defects, fraudulence and misrepresentation in the information submitted in mortgage loan applications, decreased 2.7 percent in May and was down 10 percent compared to May of 2015. The downward trajectory is nothing unusual, given that apart from two blips, the index has steadily decreased since October of 2013. Since then, when the index was at its highest, the defect risk has dropped 28.4 percent.Owner-occupied loans are 30 percent less risky than investor loans. Single family properties are 11 percent less risky than condos, and FHA loans are 15 percent less risky than conventional loans, the report found.Year over year, Michigan’s defect risk dropped a mighty 27.5 percent, followed by Florida’s 20 percent. West Virginia, New Mexico, and Delaware rounded out the year’s most improved markets, each seeing risk decrease by about 16 percent.Not all states were down over these past 12 months. North Dakota’s defect risk increased 19.3 percent since last year. Maine and Missouri each increased 10 percent, and Utah and Oklahoma increased about 5 percent each.Locally, Detroit’s risk dropped 33 percent since last year; while Jacksonville and Miami each dropped just more than 20 percent. Hartford decreased 19 percent and Buffalo dropped 17.6 percent.St. Louis saw the biggest year-to-year increase of 16 percent.“While we have often stated that location matters, it is important to keep in mind that part of the locational variances in loan defect risk among markets is due to the unique mix of loan applications in each market,” said Mark Fleming, chief economist at First American. “We expect misrepresentation and fraud risk to move higher with more purchase, investor and condominium transactions. The loan application mix influences the Defect Index, even when compliance drives the overall trend down.”First American’s Defect Index for refinance transactions declined 3.1 percent month-over-month, and is 10 percent lower than a year ago. The Defect Index for purchase transactions also declined, 2.4 percent month-over-month, and is down 11.4 percent compared to a year ago. According to First American, defect risk on refinance transactions declines faster for purchase transactions‒‒38 percent versus 22 percent, respectively, since their peaks in late 2013.Fleming credited better technology and compliance standards in the loan application process, along with more time spent underwriting each loan application‒‒which, he admitted, could be increasing the cost of loan production and reducing profitability for lenders, but is ramping up loan quality.“Fewer defects and less misrepresentation will reduce repurchase risk and expenses for underwriters in the future,” he said.
