Senator Lillian Dyck says the Senate Standing Committee on Aboriginal Peoples is waiting for Bill C-262 so that it can move the bill along with the hope it will be passed into law before the senate rises in June.Justin BrakeAPTN NewsThe chair of the Senate Aboriginal Affairs committee says the sooner Bill C-262 gets through its second reading in the upper chamber, the better.On Wednesday Senator Lillian Dyck told APTN News that the committee she leads is working ahead of schedule on other matters in order to free up time to deal with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act.But a coalition of Indigenous and human rights groups are calling out Conservative senators for using “partisan stalling tactics” to prevent the bill from getting to committee in time for it to reach royal ascent before the Senate rises in June.If that happened, years of work by Cree NDP MP Romeo Saganash, Indigenous leaders and politicians would be lost in their efforts to align Canada’s laws with the globally recognized minimum human rights standards for Indigenous Peoples.On Tuesday evening Conservative Senator Larry Smith introduced a motion to adjourn debate just as senators were set to begin their eleventh sitting related to the bill.That motion was voted down by Liberal and Independent Senators Group (ISG) senators.Conservative Senator Donald Plett then used senate rules to delay any further debate in the chamber until they sit again.Grand Chief Stewart Phillip of the Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs, which is a member of the Coalition for the Human Rights of Indigenous Peoples, says the move is “a shameful moment for Canada,” and that it’s “profoundly troubling that a crucial opportunity to now move ahead with the urgent work of reconciliation could be jeopardized by Conservative Senators resorting to procedural dirty tricks.”Plett says there’s no point in referring the bill to the Senate Standing Committee on Aboriginal Peoples at present because that committee already has its hands full with two government bills, C-91 and C-92 — the child welfare and Indigenous languages legislation — which take precedent over private members’ bills.“Until the committee has time to study it, then let’s keep it in the chamber so that if there are senators that want to speak to it, then they can speak to it,” Plett says.But Dyck, who was among the senators that opposed Smith’s motion Tuesday, says her committee wants C-262 as soon as possible so that it can begin to plan and schedule witnesses.“It would be very helpful to actually have it referred to us so that the steering committee could discuss it and see how we can fit it in,” she says.Dyck says that with C-91 and C-92 still in the House of Commons, “there may be a possibility that there’s a period of time when we’re finished with [those bills’] pre-studies and we still don’t have the bills in the Senate yet — so that would free up committee time” to study C-262.“But until we actually get Bill 262 we will not actually discuss how we’re going to handle that, we won’t set up a witness list and plan when we will have people come, because we don’t have it yet,” she explains.Wendy Moss, an Indigenous rights advocate, policy advisor and member of the coalition, says Tuesday’s efforts by Smith and Plett to adjourn the debate on C-262 isn’t the first time Conservatives have hampered progress on UNDRIP.She said Conservative opposition to the declaration in Parliament goes back to the Harper Government’s vote against C-262’s predecessor, also a private members’ bill from Saganash, to implement UNDRIP in Canada.This time, with C-262, the Liberals, NDP, Bloc Quebecois and Green Party have all supported the bill in the House of Commons.“The only party that voted against it was the Conservatives, two of whose members gave each other a high five for voting against it,” Moss recalls, describing the June 2018 vote when Alberta MP Dane Lloyd and Saskatchewan MP Rosemarie Falk high-fived as they stood to oppose the bill.Lloyd and Falk later denied their high-five had anything to do with their opposition to the bill.But with widespread support outside the Conservative caucuses, advocates of the bill say there’s a lot of progress on Indigenous and human rights to be lost if the bill doesn’t get to committee and back to senate for a third reading so that it can receive royal ascent by June.“After more than two decades of deliberation in the United Nations, and more than a decade of political debate in Canada, the opportunity to finally move ahead with concrete, meaningful implementation of the U.N. Declaration must not be squandered by unprincipled stalling tactics,” Grand Chief Wilton Littlechild, a former Commissioner with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and former Progressive Conservative MP, says in the coalition letter published Wednesday.If passed, the legislation would require Canada, in consultation with Indigenous Peoples, to “take all measures necessary to ensure that the laws of Canada are consistent with” the U.N. declaration.Much of the debate on C-262 has centred around the principle of free, prior and informed consent, with some elected officials expressing concern Indigenous peoples might have stronger legal footing to oppose resource development, which some have argued could hurt Canada’s economy.But Senator Murray Sinclair, former chair of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and C-262’s sponsor in the senate, says those fears are misguided.“The U.N. Declaration really only says to the government of Canada: do an analysis of your legislation so that you can determine what you need to do when you start to implement the bill in terms of changing laws that are now in place,” he explains.“What we said, and what the bill said when MP Romeo Saganash introduced it, was it’s time to do that analysis.”The TRC calls to action also compel the federal, provincial and municipal governments to implement UNDRIP as the framework for reconciliation.Over the past year many Indigenous leaders and groups have called for the passing of C-262 ahead of the Liberals’ touted child welfare and Indigenous languages legislation, and ahead of its now halted Recognition and Implementation of Indigenous Rights Framework legislation.They believe once Canadian law is aligned with UNDRIP, future policy and legislative changes would have to meet the minimum standards of Indigenous rights laid out in the declaration.Dyck won’t say whether she believes the Conservatives are deliberately stalling the bill.“I don’t know what people’s motives are,” she says. “All I will say is that it would be helpful to have the bill referred to us sooner rather than later.”Sinclair also stops short of pointing his finger, but says “there’s been a lack of willingness to move.”Plett says there are a number of senators who still want to speak to the bill.“It is unwise to suggest that the legislation should be pushed through parliament without allowing parliamentarians the opportunity to carefully consider and speak about the legislation and its impacts,” he says.But Sinclair says of the estimated 17 senators who have spoken on C-262 since its first senate reading in May 2018, “to the best of my recollection only two of them have been Conservatives.”Addressing questions around C-262’s constitutionality, Sinclair also says there is a difference between the bill’s wording, on one hand, and “passing UNDRIP into law” on the other.He says the bill doesn’t force provinces, territories or municipalities to do anything, though he believes they should start analyzing their own policies and laws.“It’s only with regard to federal legislation this bill is going to have that impact,” he says.“You can’t pass a bill that declared the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples is the law of the land, because it crosses over too many levels of jurisdiction,” Sinclair continues. “And you cannot in a federal law unilaterally take away rights under a provincial law. That’s why there needs to be a lot of work done with a lot of jurisdictions.”To those who believe C-262 would give Indigenous peoples a “veto” over resource development on their lands, Sinclair offers an analogy.“If you were to go to somebody and say, ‘I want you to get into a fight with me,’ and I decline to get into a fight with you — that doesn’t mean that I’m stopping your right to go and fight somebody else. If you can find somebody else who’s prepared to enter into a boxing match with you, then go ahead and do it. But I’m not the one who’s going to do it,” he says.“In the same way, if you have somebody who owns a piece of land and you come to them and say, ‘I want to buy your land,’ or, ‘I want to take your land,’ I can say, ‘No you can’t.’ But that doesn’t mean that you’re stopped from taking somebody else’s land or going and buying somebody else’s land.“If you want to cross Indigenous territory, and you come to them and say, ‘We want to cross your territory with this pipeline,’ and they say, ‘We don’t want you to’ — that doesn’t mean they’re stopping your pipeline. It means you have to figure out a different way to build that pipeline, skirting that land.“And so it’s not a veto at all, and people who are saying that are quite frankly lying to the public.”In their letter Wednesday the coalition called on Conservative leader Andrew Scheer to “to ensure that Conservative Senators abandon these unprincipled stalling tactics so that consideration of Bill C-262 can proceed.”Scheer did not respond to APTN’s request for comment by the time of publication.On Wednesday the House of Commons backed a motion from NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh calling on the Senate to pass C-262 “into law at the earliest opportunity”.firstname.lastname@example.org@aptnnews

CALGARY – Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. posted third-quarter earnings Thursday that beat expectations and laid out plans to increase production by 11 per cent next year, despite an uncertain outlook for oil prices.Adjusted for one-time items, earnings amounted to 89 cents per share, well ahead of the 75 cents per share analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters had expected.Net income was $1.04 billion, or 94 cents per share, for the quarter ending Sept. 30, compared to $1.17 billion, or $1.07 per share, a year ago.Cash flow dipped to $2.44 billion from $2.45 billion in the third quarter of 2013.Production came in at nearly 797,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day, up from almost 703,000 in the year-ago period.Canadian Natural (TSX:CNQ) has set a capital budget for 2015 of $8.6 billion — $400 million higher than this year’s outlay, if $3.8 billion in acquisitions are taken out of the mix.President Steve Laut said Canadian Natural may look to do “opportunistic” acquisitions if they’re at the right price and fit. But there aren’t any gaps in the company’s portfolio that need filling, he said.About $2 billion of next year’s budget can be shifted around if necessary.“We’re prepared for a low commodity price cycle,” said Laut.Cash flow next year is expected to be $9.4 billion.The company aims to increase production by 11 per cent, with the mid-point of its production range at 893,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.Next year’s plans are based on West Texas Intermediate crude at US$81 per barrel, $3.45 for Alberta natural gas prices and the loonie at 89 cents versus the U.S. dollar. It expects the price of heavy crude it producers to be about 18 per cent lower than WTI, a U.S. light crude benchmark.Laut said Canadian Natural’s Horizon mine, north of Fort McMurray, Alta., can churn out “impressive” free cash flow “for decades to come,” even if WTI prices stay at US$70 per barrel for a prolonged period.On Thursday, the December crude contract in New York was down $1.26 to US$77.42 a barrel.An expansion to 250,000 barrels per day at Horizon should be completed over the next three years, with the work tracking on budget. A 45,000 barrel-per-day expansion is expected to be completed in late 2016, with another 80,000 barrels being added in late 2017.Production at Horizon was lower during the third quarter as the plant was shut down for 25 days to hook up new equipment. Synthetic crude oil output averaged 82,000 barrels per day, down from 112,000 barrels a year earlier.Production levels are expected to average 127,000 barrels per day for the rest of the year.Canadian Natural shares rose about 2.4 per cent to $39.16 in early afternoon trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange.Follow @LaurenKrugel on Twitter CNRL third-quarter earnings beat expectations, sets ’15 budget at $8.6B by Lauren Krugel, The Canadian Press Posted Nov 6, 2014 3:39 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email
There are an estimated 3,000 refugees and migrants in Calais and in the northern coast of France today – virtually the same number as last November, according to UNHCR. However, the rising death toll among refugees and migrants, at least 10 since the beginning of June, attempting to cross the Channel from Calais to the United Kingdom is a “worrying” development.UNHCR remains concerned at the dire living and reception conditions in the makeshift sites around Calais.“UNHCR is reiterating its call made since the summer 2014 for a comprehensive response – first and foremost by the French authorities – to the worsening reception conditions for refugees and migrants in Calais,” spokesperson Melissa Fleming told reporters in Geneva, describing as “dire” the living and reception conditions in the makeshift sites around the city.“Security measures alone, though understandable, are unlikely to be effective by themselves,” she added.Ms. Fleming said that many of these people are in need of international protection, having fled conflict, violence and persecution in Afghanistan, Eritrea, Somalia, Sudan, and Syria.UNHCR encouraged the French authorities to gradually relocate people from the current informal settlements and provide them, as is the case in most European countries, adequate reception conditions in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region as well as in other locations. “It is also essential to address the current significant delays for those who want to apply for asylum in France,” said Ms. Fleming, adding that women and children are particularly vulnerable to exploitation and trafficking and require special attention by the French authorities.“An exceptional response is urgently needed,” she stressed. “We also call on the United Kingdom and other EU member States to work in a collaborative manner with the competent French authorities in finding solutions for those in need of international protection – namely in cases where there are existing family or other links in another EU Member State in accordance with the existing European legislation.”UNHCR voiced its readiness to further assist France, the UK and other EU member States in finding practical and comprehensive solutions.
It is essential that clinical and political leaders ramp up the pressure and hold the Health Secretary and government to account on this issueDr Mark Holland, Society for Acute Medicine president Ambulances are failing to reach dying and seriously-ill patients fast enough as the service creaks under the strain of high demand, according to a report.Only one of the UK’s 13 ambulance services, the Welsh Ambulance Service, is meeting the target to reach patients with life-threatening conditions within eight minutes, an investigation has found.Freedom of Information requests by the BBC found more than 500,000 hours of ambulance crews’ time in England, Wales and Northern Ireland was wasted waiting at A&E to hand over patients to hospital staff. NHS England’s ambulance lead, Professor Jonathan Benger, said the rising number of calls the service received was a major factor in the delays.He told the BBC: “In the face of rising demand it is not surprising we are having difficulty meeting these targets. It is time to look at the system.”An NHS England spokesman said NHS Improvement is working to reduce delays in A&Es receiving patients in England where some hospitals are ensuring extra nursing staff are available at peak times.”These delays have many contributory causes and often reflect pressure on beds within the hospital as a whole and a system that is struggling to discharge patients to community settings,” he said.”We recognise that handover should occur as soon as it is safe to do so, with ambulances released to return to frontline duties in a timely way.”All staff are working hard to keep handover delays to a minimum with a view to eliminating them altogether.” Dr Mark Holland, president of the Society for Acute Medicine, said the “significant strain” on the NHS was due to the Government’s failure to accept the social care crisis.He said: “The Government has continuously failed to acknowledge the scale of the crisis in social care and the record numbers of delayed discharges in our hospitals as a result – a significant factor in the build-up of pressure on our hospitals.”Having the support and infrastructure in place to discharging medically-fit patients safely is central to releasing pressure on emergency departments, acute medical units and ambulance services.”It is essential that clinical and political leaders ramp up the pressure and hold the Health Secretary and government to account on this issue before it is too late.” A Department of Health spokesman said: “Ambulance services in England are performing well under pressure, responding to the significant majority of the most serious calls within eight minutes.”He added: “NHS England is working closely with ambulance services to improve response times and we’re helping recruit 2,200 more paramedics since 2010, as well as increasing the number of training places this year by 60 per cent.” The Department of Health said NHS England is working closely with ambulance services to improve response time.

A$707 a second is how much the Queensland minerals and energy resources sector spends on goods and services from Queensland businesses; wages and salaries paid to its Queensland employees, and voluntary community contributions to Queensland communities. This is just a sample of the data available from a new website www. Queenslandeconomy.com.au This was being launched in Brisbane by Queensland Resources Council Chief Executive Michael Roche at the peak industry body’s annual lunch in front of the Premier and a record 950 guests. “The beauty of the website is that if you want to know exactly what was spent in your local government area by resources companies in 2009-10, the total spend is there, along with an independent measure of subsequent economic activity generated in that community. All you need is a postcode or town name to get instant results,” Roche said.The database powering the website is the most sophisticated and accurate compiled by any Australian industry. “In an Australian first, actual spending by QRC member companies was aggregated by postcode and then translated into a full economic picture-including the flow-on benefits of income and job generation-across all Queensland local government areas.“While a large share of the annual spend on goods and services and wages and salaries occurs in resource communities, it’s revealing to learn how far and wide the economic benefits spread. For example, 423 or 96% of Queensland’s 441 geographic postcodes received at least one dollar in goods and services expenditure in 2009-10.”Telling 2009-10 statistics from http://www.queenslandeconomy.com.au/:The resources sector accounted for 21% of the Queensland economyIt accounted for 13% of Queensland’s total employmenIt accounted for 22.7% of Brisbane’s total employment (or 136,600 jobs)It spent A$17.4 billion in Queensland on local goods and services and voluntary community contributions and paid A$4.9 billion in salaries and wages to its employeesIts total land disturbance was just 0.09% of Queensland’s land massResources sector royalties paid to the Queensland Government could increase from a forecast A$3.2 billion in 2010-11 to A$6.1 billion by 2020-21.“We often hear that the resources sector is the backbone of our economy, and it is equally apparent now that all Queenslanders have a stake in a healthy and prosperous resources sector.”
Image: C-SPANPresident Trump signed an order Wednesday to address the family separations at the southern border, but it raises new questions for Congress. Trump’s order calls for families to be detained together.Listen now“So we’re keeping families together, and this will solve that problem. At the same time, we are keeping a very powerful border, and it continues to be a zero tolerance,” Trump said in the Oval Office. “We have zero tolerance for people who enter our country illegally.”Trump ordered the attorney general to try to modify a legal settlement that limits the detention of immigrant children so that the government can hold families indefinitely while their criminal or immigration cases are pending.Among Alaska’s congressional delegation, Sen. Lisa Murkowski is the most critical on this issue and she’s wary of keeping children locked up for long periods, even with their parents.Murkowski said the family separations have to end.“But keeping families in detention for an unlimited period of time, I don’t believe that is the answer either,” Murkowski said Wednesday, before she’d had a chance to see the president’s executive order. She said the solution has to consider the needs of families seeking asylum.“Let’s go through the process, the procedure that will determine whether or not this is a family that should be able to seek asylum and safety here in this country, and allow them that process,” Murkowski said.Murkowski said families whose asylum claims are accepted by the government should be released from detention while they wait for their court dates. She added that the flight risk is lower for asylum seekers who’ve cleared that first procedural hurdle because they stand to gain legal status.Murkowski also said she likes Republican Sen. Ted Cruz’s proposal to double the number of immigration judges and speed the process so asylum cases can be decided in two weeks, but she said she wants to be sure the bill is more than “aspirational.” She’s also considering a bill by Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein that bans family separations.“I think that in a couple of instances it is too expansive, so we’ve talked to her about how we might address that,” Murkowski said.Sen. Dan Sullivan did not respond by deadline to questions about the Trump executive order. But he, like Trump, has said it’s important to end what they call “catch and release,” where families and asylum-seekers are released from custody to wait for their court dates.Congressman Don Young hasn’t taken a position on either of the two immigration proposals the House is set to consider this week. A spokesperson said he’s waiting for the final text. Young, in a written statement, said he applauds the president’s executive order.
New Delhi: External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar, who attended the 19th Commonwealth Foreign Affairs Ministers Meeting in London, called for fast-tracking the Maldives’ re-admission into the Commonwealth, which it left in a huff in 2016 over criticism of the arrest of political leaders including former President Mohammed Nasheed.

FacebookU.S. Rep. Blake Farenthold, R-Corpus Christi.Nine candidates have filed for the June 30 special election to finish former U.S. Rep. Blake Farenthold‘s term, according to the secretary of state’s office. The deadline was 5 p.m. Friday. As expected, the group includes the four candidates who are currently in the May 22 runoffs for the November election: Democrats Raul “Roy” Barrera and Eric Holguin, as well as Republicans Bech Bruun and Michael Cloud. The other five candidates who filed for the special election are Democrat Mike Westergren, Republican Marty Perez, Independent Judith Cutright, Libertarian Daniel Tinus and Independent Christopher Suprun.Of the five non-runoff candidates, Suprun, who is from Dallas, is perhaps best known — he voted against Donald Trump at Texas’ Electoral College meeting following the 2016 presidential election. Westergren, meanwhile, is a Corpus Christi lawyer who unsuccesfully ran for Texas Supreme Court in 2016.Abbott announced the special election Tuesday, giving candidates only three days to file for the race to complete Farenthold’s term, which ends in January 2019. Early voting for the special election runs from June 13-26, and a runoff — which looks probable given the number of candidates — would likely take place in September at the latest. Farenthold, a Corpus Christi Republican, abruptly resigned earlier this month amid mounting scrutiny over the revelation last year that he used $84,000 from a taxpayer-funded account to settle a sexual harassment claim in 2015. On Wednesday, Abbott issued a letter to Farenthold demanding that he make good on his promise to repay the amount by putting it toward the cost of the special election. Abbott asked Farenthold to respond to the letter by Wednesday.Before the June 30 special election to finish Farenthold’s term, voters in the district will primary runoffs will take place on May 22 to determine Democratic and Republican nominees for the seat in the fall. The winner of that contest will serve a full term beginning in January 2019. Share
She has a cascading grey pony tail but that’s not the first thing you notice about her. She’s a tiny, well-built woman, but that’s not the first thing you notice either.It’s the welcoming, twinkling eyes and the gracious smile that pull you into the world of champion weightlifter and trainer, Ernestine Shepherd.And especially so when she opens her arms and asks,”Where’s my hug?”She loves her life, at 78, and spends most of it doing what the rest of us mere mortals dread: running, walking, lifting weights and watching every morsel she puts in her mouth.“I always want to be a good example to the people I work and train with, so I don’t want to tell them one thing and do another,” Shepherd said.So she practices what she preaches, including being grateful for every day and sharing love in whatever ways she can.But she hadn’t always been so cheerful and full of life. Her older sister, Mildred Blackwell, the one with which she started the physical training journey, died of an aneurism some years ago, and that left Shepherd feeling bereft of life and ready to give up completely.“I just couldn’t understand why God had let such a thing happen. It made no sense to me,” she said. “I was so depressed and I felt like I couldn’t go on without her.”But something strange happened and that was her salvation.“I had a dream in which my sister scolded me. She reminded me of the mantra she’d chosen for us – Determined, Dedicated, Disciplined to Be Fit – and she chastised me for not continuing as I’d promised I would,” Shepherd said.“I went to Rome and it happened to be on my sister’s birthday, the tag on the car that picked me up was 316, my sister’s birthday. The music that played in the hotel was Mildred’s favorite song, and it was in that moment that I became a new person,” Shepherd said.“And I began to pray, ‘Restore the joy of my salvation.’”It was in that moment that she regained her motivation and she hasn’t stopped since. When asked about those days that most people have, when there’s just no get up and go.“I’m on a mission to let everyone know, especially the seniors, that they can have a happy, healthy, positive lifestyle if they’ll put in the effort,” Shepherd said, listing exercise, right eating, drinking plenty of water and walking every day. And then with greater emphasis, she added, “And above all else, prayer. I tell everyone that.”And she’s serious. She starts every day with prayer and meditation around 2:30 a.m., after having slept about four hours.“I’ve never really needed a lot of sleep.”Chauncey “The Trainer” Whitehead with his “fitness mother.”Her next move, after a breakfast consisting of “two complete eggs, a bagel with jelly, 8 ounces of liquid egg whites, a handful of walnuts, a half cup crushed pineapple and 16 ounces of water,” is a 10-mile walk with a small group of fellow enthusiasts.Once she’s finished and had another eight ounces of liquid egg whites and 16 ounces of water, she goes to the gym for a workout. Another workout. With friends.At 10 a.m., she teaches a class on toning at the Energy Fitness and Wellness Center on Old Court and Liberty roads—only to come home by noon to a meal of chicken, brown rice and vegetables.That may or may not be the last class of the day, depending on the day, but she’s usually in bed by 10:30 p.m. only to begin again at 2:30 the next morning.Seriously?Chauncey “The Trainer” Whitehead, as he is known regionally, said he met Shepherd 13 years ago while power-walking Liberty Road in Baltimore.“We were walking the same 14-mile route. After that walk and subsequent walks our relationship grew and I affectionately refer to her as my ‘Fitness Mother,’ he said.“We have teamed to promote healthier lifestyles throughout Baltimore and beyond,” he said, referring to the monthly community health walks they promote in Druid Hill Park.One of those devotees, Linda Hollis attributes her “fine frame” to the regimen encouraged by Shepherd.“I frequently get compliments on my physical appearance and I’m often asked where I work out. I tell them about Ernestine,” Hollis said. “She has guided me and others to a toned body and healthier lifestyle, I am forever grateful to her.”Hollis has been training and taking Shepherd’s body sculpting classes for five years, and says their friendship “has blossomed into a sisterly bond.”For Shepherd, it all started when she was a mere 56 and, at 5’5”, weighed 150 pounds. She and her sister, Mildred, who was 57 at the time, went shopping for bathing suits for the picnic their home church, Union Memorial UM, was having that summer.They were not happy with what the mirrors showed them, so they decided on a physical education class at Coppin State University.They enrolled in an aerobics class under the training of Jay Bennett and Simmons. Her sister worked a little harder, gained a lot of attention, even a newspaper feature, which made Shepherd a little envious. And when Blackwell confronted her on the obvious jealousy she was feeling, that pushed Shepherd to work harder as her sister had done.And she did. And she hasn’t slowed down yet.Her first career was at Western Electric from which she retired after 29 years. She then worked for a Beauty Mart for 10 years, following which she served as secretary at City Springs Elementary for another 11 years.But this is her niche.And she serenades her husband every morning before she leaves for her walk.He wishes she wouldn’t.Her favorite ring tone is the theme from Rocky.“I really want to meet Sylvester Stallone. I was so inspired by that movie and it gives me such energy.The only other person she really wants to meet, aside from Stalone is first lady Michelle Obama.“I just love her and while she works with the children, I’m working with the seniors. We’re really doing the same thing.”She has one son, Michael and a grandson, also Michael.Oh, and did I say, in addition to her constant workout, she sings on the choir at Union Memorial, belongs to the Flower Circle and is an actor in the Union Players.+
Mark Lazarus, currently supervisor of NBC Sports and stations, will expand his oversight and become chairman, NBCUniversal Broadcast, Cable, Sports and News. He will run cable operations previously managed by Hammer as well as NBCU’s various news operations, including NBC News and CNBC.Jeff Shell, currently chairman of Universal Filmed Entertainment Group, will expand his duties and become chairman of NBCUniversal Film and Entertainment. He will take oversight of NBC Entertainment, Telemundo, and NBCU’s international operations.Bonnie Hammer will become chairman of Direct-to-Consumer and Digital Enterprises for NBCU, and will also supervise the company’s stakes in digital-media outlets like Vox, Snap and Buzzfeed. Maggie Suniewick,who leads the company’s digital enterprises group, will report to Hammer.Donna Langley will become chairman, Universal Filmed Entertainment Group, adding global theatrical distribution and home entertainment to her portfolio. She becomes the only woman at present to lead a major Hollywood studio. She continues to report to Shell.NBC News Chairman Andy Lack and CNBC Chairman and CEO Mark Hoffman will report to Lazarus. Cesar Conde, who oversees Telemundo and international operations, will report to Shell. Linda Yaccarino, chairman of ad sales and client partnerships, continues to report to Burke, as will Shell, Lazarus, Hammer and NBCUniversal vice chairman Ron Meyer, among others.The moves will reduce the number of people reporting directly to the NBCU CEO, and spotlight the growing urgency big media companies are placing on getting into direct-to-consumer streaming. Digital-video companies like Netflix and Amazon have become increasingly formidable competitors. And while NBCU parent Comcast is a charter stakeholder in Hulu, rival Walt Disney Co. is expected to gain majority control of that outlet when it completes its purchase of a large chunk of 21st Century Fox this year. Elevation of Lazarus and Shell could position either as a possible successor to Burke. Burke’s current employment contract expires in 2020. There is no hint that the 60-year-old executive is preparing to leave in the near future.The two executives stand to gain more responsibility as Comcast has pushed to expand NBCUniversal. The parent company made a serious bid last year for cable-and-studio assets owned by 21st Century Fox that eventually ended up being sold to Walt Disney. That transaction is expected to close soon. Despite Disney prevailing in that effort, Comcast’s acquisition of Sky will give it more exposure to international markets, more heft in negotiations for sports rights and a new international partner for NBC News.NBCU has, like many other media companies, grappled with the migration of viewers from linear TV-watching to on-demand viewing. The company has over the years culled its cable portfolio, shuttering cable networks like Esquire and Cloo that it believes cannot perform up to a certain level. And it has invested in digital-content companies like the aforementioned outlets in an effort to gain a toehold in a world where younger consumers are flocking to upstart content brands.In a recent call with investors, Burke indicated satisfaction with the outlook for NBCU’s business, but also suggested executives were monitoring trends. “Our television business continues to be very, very strong,” he said. “And I think as the world pivots here toward more streaming, we want to make sure that we respect and nurture and continue to invest and continue to outperform on the television side wherever the world goes in terms of new technologies.”Both Shell and Lazarus have extensive experience overseeing big media operations.Shell joined Comcast first as president of Comcast’s programming group, which at the time meant managing the company’s interests and investments in national and regional cable outlets. Prior to that, he was CEO of Gemstar-TV Guide International and president of Fox’s entertainment-focused cable operations when that company was part of News Corp. ×’The Sopranos’ Cast Remembers James GandolfiniVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9Next UpWyclef Jean on the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award Title00:49 twitter facebook reddit Linkhttps://variety.com/2019/digital/news/nbcuniversal-jeff-shell-mark-lazarus-bonnie-hammer-streaming-1203105966/?jwsource=clCopied EmbedCopiedLive00:0003:4503:45More Videos00:49Wyclef Jean on the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award Title01:46Alessandro Nivola Teases ‘The Many Saints of Newark’ Character02:15Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney Princesses00:47Bebe Rexha Talked to Sophie Turner About the ‘Game of Thrones’ Finale05:35The Best of Star Wars at D2301:44’It: Chapter Two’ Cast Feeling Pressure For Box Office Success?Close NBCUniversal is set to unveil a major shakeup of its top executive ranks as CEO Steve Burke reorganizes his direct reports and the company prepares for the launch of a streaming service next year, according to two people familiar with the matter.Mark Lazarus and Jeff Shell will take on expanded roles overseeing NBCUniversal’s vast television operations. Longtime cable chief Bonnie Hammer will shift to oversee NBCU’s streaming plans, which will be somewhat different from those burnished by many of the company’s competitors. The offering will be free to NBCU pay-cable subscribers in the U.S. and will be supported by advertising.Among the many changes coming to NBCU: Meanwhile, both Disney and AT&T’s Warner Media are slated to launch video-streaming services of their own in 2019. CBS has ad-supported streaming for sports and news and a subscription streaming service, CBS All Access. And Fox News launched its Fox Nation subscription outlet late last year.Hammer, a TV executive whose days in the medium tie back to the classic PBS series “Zoom,” will potentially play a critical role in NBCU’s future. Plans call for the new streaming service to be made available to subscribers to both Comcast, NBCU’s parent company, as well as Sky PLC, the European satellite broadcaster that Comcast acquired control in last year. In all, NBCU will make the service available to 52 million subscribers. The service is expected to feature original content and programming from outside partners as well as material from the company’s archives. An ad-free version will also be available for a fee, and, non-pay TV customers can purchase a subscription separately. Lazarus, meanwhile, has served stints as president of Turner Sports when it was part of Time Warner, and president of Turner’s entertainment-focused cable networks. He first joined NBCU as president of NBC Sports Cable Group, and was then named chairman of NBC Sports in May of 2011. He is the ultimate manager of NBCU’s relationships with the National Football League and the International Olympic Committee, two programming ties critical to the company’s business. In 2016, he was given oversight of the owned-and-operated stations as well as network operations and broadcast standards. His growing responsibilities prompted NBC Sports to instill a new president, Pete Bevaqua, at the unit – the first time that role has been filled since Comcast reorganized the unit after acquiring control of NBCUniversal.(Above, pictured: Mark Lazarus, Jeff Shell and Bonnie Hammer)
One of the major releases the Wii U will get next month is the HD re-release of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. The update is mainly focused on the visuals, taking the standard definition GameCube originals and bringing them bang up-to-date with a HD makeover.Although Wind Waker will appeal to a new generation of gamers 10 years after its original launch, there’s going to be quite a few older gamers who have fond memories of the game. But is it worth buying it again or just getting your GameCube back out of storage?GameXplain has decided to help you make that decision by doing a side-by-side comparison video of the GameCube and Wii U versions. This is purely to show off the visuals, but it does demonstrate where Nintendo has put the work in.Yes, it looks pretty, but is it enough to entice a re-purchase? Well, there are other features of the update to consider, too. For example, the Wii U GamePad has been put to good use acting as your inventory, and you can control certain items from the touchscreen (including weapons that take advantage of the built-in gyroscope for aiming). And of course you get to play the game on the GamePad away from the TV if you wish. Nintendo has also tightened up the game by making the ocean load faster to improve the sailing sections, and if there was something you found really tedious in the original, chances are it isn’t anymore on Wii U.Finally there’s Hero Mode, which should be the main draw for returning gamers beyond the graphics update. Hero Mode is hardcore mode. It removes the hearts dropped by enemies and through pot smashing, and enemy damage is doubled. If you want a new challenge from a game you already beat a decade ago, Nintendo is offering just that.So, is Wind Waker HD a buy?
Despite competitive challenges and a slow moving global financial climate, the Emirates Group has ended the financial year in a strong position, reporting its 26th consecutive year of profit and company-wide growth. “Achieving our 26th consecutive year of profit in a financial year marked by record increases in capacity and significant business investments across the Group, is testimony to the strength of our brands and our business fundamentals,” Emirates Airline and Group chairman and chief executive officer His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum said. Moreover, the Group has also announced that the financial year marked an unprecedented level of investment, continued expansion of its global presence, and the achievement of new capacity milestones. Furthermore, the Group also continued to invest in and expand on its employee base, increasing its overall staff count by 11 per cent to over 75,000, representing more than 160 nationalities. Emirates made a USD $887 billion, as revenue increased by 13 per cent to USD $22.5 billion, as well as increased capacity by 5.9 billion Available Tonne Kilometres (ATKMs). The airline received 24 new aircraft during the year, which has seen its fleet grow to a total of 217, with Emirates remaining the world’s largest operator of the Boeing 777 and A380, and along with it the launch of nine new destinations, including a new service between Milan and New York. “Throughout 2013-14, the Group has collectively invested over USD $6.0 billion, the highest amount ever in one financial year because we know that to be a sustainable and profitable business we have to keep adding value to our stakeholders, our customers, partners and employees. For the financial year ending 31 March 2014, the Emirates Group has reported a USD $4.1 billion profit, up 32 per cent from last year, with the Group’s revenue reaching USD $23.9 billion, an increase of 13 per cent. This makes it the largest capacity increase in the airline’s history, bringing Emirates’ total passenger and cargo capacity to 46.8 billion ATKMs. Source = ETB News: Lana Bogunovich “We are moving into the new financial year with confidence, and a strong foundation for continued profitability with our strong balance sheet, solid track record, diverse global portfolio and international talent pool.”
Lufthansa reveals the first secrets of its new Business ClassLufthansa reveals the first secrets of its new Business ClassLufthansa has revealed one of its best-kept secrets and unveiled the concept for its brandnew Business Class. It will be available on regular routes for the first time in 2020, with the roll-out of the Boeing 777-9. The new seat is the key element of the service and comfort level in the cabin, which have been improved even further. It was developed with the goal of facilitating the best and soundest sleep up above the clouds. Lufthansa guests can not only look forward to beds with a length up to 220 cm (86.6 inches); the comfort and convenience of the seat also ensure heavenly dreams: the construction of the back rest makes it possible for the shoulder to sink in when you are lying on your side. This keeps the spine straight and makes it possible for side sleepers to also benefit from ideallyhealthy and relaxing sleep.The brand-new Business Class seat was developed exclusively for the German premium airline together with Lufthansa’s customers. Over 500 guests provided in-depth support during the development phases. Privacy and an optimum of comfort for sleeping are two of the most important needs of passengers on international routes – both are handled perfectly with the new Business Class concept.“The new, ultra-modern Lufthansa Business Class creates a new global benchmark. It offers our passengers a unique travel experience,” says Harry Hohmeister, Member of the Executive Board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG. “We have consistently and continuously refined our range of premium products for our guests and modernized Lufthansa. Our focus is and has always been on the wishes of our customers and their specific needs. We want to provide them with the perfect travel experience. The new Business Class showcases the full innovative capacity of Lufthansa.”Compared to its predecessors, the Boeing 777-9 has a considerably wider cabin. In the new Business Class, this space is used to significantly increase the comfort level for passengers. For instance, all passengers in the new Business class will have direct accessto the aisle. This is made possible by a 1-2-1 and 1-1-1 seat configuration. The new seats also provide customers with a significantly increased amount of personal space, more privacy, as well as generous storage compartments and flat surfaces. Depending on theirpersonal needs, passengers can choose between a number of spatial configurations. For instance, they can choose to have an extended-length bed or a seat with twice as much desk space. Lufthansa’s new high-end Business Class offers business and leisure travellers an incomparably luxurious, healthy and relaxing flight experience.The new Business Class will also be setting standards from a technological point of view. Thanks to digital interfaces, all the functions of the seat as well as the in-flight entertainment system can be controlled using the passenger’s personal device. Smartphones and tablets can be recharged at the seat using wireless technology. And in the future, anyone who wants to watch one of the movies from the extensive entertainment program will experience the blockbusters on much larger screens, in full HD.There will already be some innovations in the existing Business Class in the upcoming year that will significantly improve the comfort level for passengers. Mattresses that have been developed exclusively for Lufthansa will be provided on long intercontinental flightsas of early 2018. They will ensure pleasant sleep on board. On request, passengers will also be provided with sleeping sweaters. So far, these have only been available in First Class. Lufthansa will also be offering its Business Class passengers new blankets. They are lined, but still light, and will keep the passengers warm at night.Source = Lufthansa
