People who kill Indigenous women punished less than those who kill nonIndigenous women

first_imgSenator Lillian Dyck has co-authored a soon to be released study that she says has found disproportionate sentencing for offenders in female homicide cases. File photo.Justin BrakeAPTN NewsAn Indigenous Senator who is trying to change how perpetrators of violence against Indigenous women are sentenced in Canada says a soon to be released report shows that courts are more lenient to people who kill Indigenous women and girls than to those whose victims are not Indigenous.Cree Senator Lillian Dyck shared some of the report’s findings with APTN News.The co-authored paper analyzed data from around 800 cases involving violence against women between 1980 and 2013.The cases were selected because they reveal the ethnicity of both the victim and the perpetrator, Dyck explained in a phone interview.Among the researchers’ starkest findings is a disparity between the punishments for those who kill Indigenous women and those who kill non-Indigenous women.“Even though with murder there is very little wiggle room [with convictions], we did find that if you looked at the type of convictions by the victim’s race, when it was an Indigenous victim most often it was second-degree murder or manslaughter. If it was a non-Indigenous victim it was more likely first or second-degree murder,” Dyck said.First degree murder convictions are more likely to be given to those who killed a non-Indigenous woman–33 per cent–compared to perpetrators who killed an Indigenous woman, at 20 per cent.For second degree murder convictions, the rates were 39 per cent in cases where the victim was Indigenous, versus 46 per cent when the victim was not Indigenous.In contrast, the researchers found 39 per cent of manslaughter convictions in cases where the victim was Indigenous, versus 21 per cent when the victim was non-Indigenous.“That shows there’s something going on. It doesn’t prove there’s a racial bias, but it’s an indication that you should look into it further.”Dyck and her collaborators also found that in some homicide cases Indigenous male perpetrators “got a much higher sentence” in cases where the victim was not Indigenous, compared to cases where the victim was Indigenous, Dyck explained, adding the number of such cases was “not very high” but enough to warrant further investigation into the matter.The researchers found that non-Indigenous offenders received roughly “the same number of years before parole” regardless of their victims’ race.“But it was very different for the Aboriginal perpetrators if it was a non-Indigenous victim. He has to wait many more years before he got parole,” Dyck said.The Senator said in most homicide cases involving non-Indigenous female victims, the perpetrator was an intimate partner.But in cases where the victim was Indigenous, “usually it’s an acquaintance.”According to the study, 32 per cent of perpetrators or accused offenders were not known to Indigenous victims, while 12 per cent were unknown to non-Indigenous victims.“Contrary to the widespread belief that Indigenous women are only killed by persons known to them, this data shows the significant role of persons not known to Indigenous victims,” the report reads.The research also substantiated claims by former federal Indigenous Affairs Minister Bernard Valcourt and former RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson in 2015 that upward of 70 per cent of female Indigenous homicide victims were killed by Indigenous men.Valcourt came under fire from First Nations leaders after he told Alberta chiefs of the unpublished RCMP statistic during a meeting in Calgary.Paulson later confirmed Valcourt’s assertion.But Dyck said those claims haven’t been corroborated with evidence until now.People rally on the steps of the Supreme Court of Canada in October 2018, seeking justice for Cindy Gladue. Justin Brake/APTN“Before colonization women were not seen the way they are now — there was respect for women,” she said.“And that respect has been eroded through centuries of colonization, through the residential schools, and so on.”By contrast in the authors’ findings, only two per cent of those accused in homicide cases involving non-Indigenous women were themselves Indigenous.“This data disputes stereotypical beliefs that non-Indigenous women should be most fearful of Indigenous men,” Dyck and her co-authors write in the study.Dyck said 92 per cent of the offenders in the study were male.The authors say the findings reveal a “racialized dimension” to the homicide of women.They say Indigenous women are targeted by both Indigenous and non-Indigenous killers, while non-Indigenous women are targeted “almost exclusively by non-Indigenous perpetrators.”Bill S-215 pushes for legal reformDyck’s partial release of her research results coincided with the second reading of her Senate Bill S-215 in the House of Commons Monday.The proposed legislative change would require courts, in cases of violent offences, to consider the fact that a victim is an Indigenous woman as an aggravating factor when sentencing offenders.Effectively, those accused of crimes like sexual assault, aggravated assault, manslaughter or murder could face stiffer sentences for harming or killing an Indigenous woman than if the woman was not Indigenous.At the very least, the Senator hopes, judges will be compelled to address the vulnerability and disproportionate targeting of Indigenous women in their decisions and sentencing.Having already passed three readings in the Senate, the bill was sponsored on Monday by Indigenous Liberal MP for Winnipeg Centre Robert Falcon-Ouellette, who said S-215 will “rebalance the scales of justice.”He said the cases of Indigenous women and youth like Tina Fontaine, Cindy Gladue and Helen Betty Osborne are proof that “the combination of being Aboriginal female and living in a colonial society has devalued and dehumanized our women, and they are seen as inherently less worthy than other women.”Liberal MP Robert Falcon-Ouellette sponsored Bill S-215 Monday in the House of Commons, saying if passed it would “rebalance the scales of justice” for female Indigenous victims of violent crimes.He referenced the Canadian justice system’s “so-called subtle discrimination against Aboriginal women and girls” and said Dyck’s proposed legislative changes would “increase the likelihood that the consequences of assaulting or murdering an Aboriginal woman or girl are appropriate and meaningful.”Dene NDP MP Georgina Jolibois also supported the bill, admitting it’s “not a catch-all solution for the problems Indigenous women face in the justice system,” but that it’s “an opportunity for us to examine and question the belief systems judges, lawyers, police officers and court workers have and calls on them to see indigenous women from a new perspective.”But the bill isn’t receiving support from some MPs in the Liberal and Conservative caucuses.Conservative MP Michael Cooper questioned the bill’s constitutionality and suggested it might contradict the Gladue principle in sentencing.He asked if S-215 would violate Section 15 of the Charter, which guarantees all Canadians equal protection and benefit under the law without discrimination.“What the bill would do with respect to the Criminal Code is quite novel from the standpoint of aggravating circumstances,” he said, “because it would create a special class of victim, namely indigenous women.”Cooper said race, gender and vulnerability can already be considered aggravating factors in sentencing.He said under Dyck’s proposed legislative changes “it would not even matter if the offender knew that the victim was an Indigenous woman.”Cooper was joined by colleague and Conservative Crown-Indigenous Relations Critic Cathy McLeod, and Liberal MP Randy Boissonneault, in his concerns about the bill’s potential contradiction of the Gladue principle, which compels judges to consider all reasonable alternatives to jail when sentencing Indigenous offenders.“There would certainly be some litigation and some degree of uncertainty around sentencing,” Cooper said, in situations where a judge may be compelled to consider a victim’s Indigeneity as an aggravating factor while also considering alternative sentencing for Indigenous offenders.If S-215 were passed into law, “a judge could be under contradictory obligations both to lengthen the sentence for an Indigenous offender’s criminal conduct against an Indigenous woman and, at the same time, to consider alternatives to incarceration and reduce the sentence because the offender themselves has an Indigenous background,” Boissonneault said.Jolibois said Monday under Bill S-215 “the practitioners of violence would still get the punishment the law calls for, even with the aggravating circumstances the bill would put in place.”She said the Supreme Court has ruled that for serious offences, there may not be any reduction in imprisonment for Aboriginal offenders.Dyck said the Gladue provisions as they currently exist have “created a situation of unfairness” for Indigenous women “whereby [they’re] worth less than the man.”“Really what you’re saying to Aboriginal offenders is that you’re going to get special provisions and that maybe your crime of sexually assaulting someone—maybe even your spouse—is not that serious because of the circumstances of your life — which I understand. But those same exact factors are what made the Indigenous women vulnerable to that.“Indigenous women are seen as the lowest. In terms of racial hierarchy, we’re on the bottom.”Dyck said she is open to amendments of the bill and had previously considered making it applicable to all women, “with special consideration given to First Nations, Inuit and Metis women.”But there’s an urgent need for the reform, she adds.“The longer we wait the more Indigenous women and girls go through the court system and don’t get a fair deal — 30 to 40 a year, 450 I think in the last three years,” she said.“We could be making a difference for them rather than sitting and waiting. It’s certainly frustrating seeing it happen, to know the families are wanting this.”With endorsements from the Assembly of First Nations, the Native Women’s Association of Canada and the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations, it remains to be seen if the bill will garner enough support in the House of Commons.But Falcon-Ouellette suggested Monday that if Conservative and NDP members “decided to support the bill, I suspect there might be enough members on this side of the House, whether the government supports it or not, to move it forward.”Dyck said “it’s hard to know” if her bill would deter offenders.She said if the bill is passed and a judge decides to hand down a harsher sentence to an offender who has killed an Indigenous woman, the impact could be that people’s views “gradually start to change.”“It’s not going to be instant; it’s going to take time.” read more

Home affordability declines in Toronto Vancouver as RBC warns of rate hike

TORONTO — A report by RBC Economics says housing affordability continued to decline in Toronto and Vancouver, while conditions for homebuyers improved in Alberta during the first quarter of the year as lower oil prices caused the real estate market to soften.RBC says mortgage rate cuts improved the affordability of homes in many Canadian housing markets where prices didn’t accelerate too rapidly.That offset rapid price growth in Toronto and Vancouver, leaving national affordability levels relatively flat.RBC says demand in softer markets such as Montreal and Ottawa began to pick up. The RBC Housing Affordability study measures the proportion of household income that is needed to service the costs of owning a home at current market values.Foreign investors in Canada’s housing market need to be counted, experts sayGap between Toronto condos and low-rise homes jumps a record $100,000 from a year agoShould Canadians be worried about a potential housing meltdown?On a national level, RBC says affordability edged 0.3 percentage points lower for condos to 27.1 per cent, while for detached homes it declined 0.2 percentage points to 47.9 per cent.The bank predicts that rate hikes from the central bank, which is expected to raise its trend-setting overnight interest rate next year, are likely to erode affordability.“Exceptionally low interest rates have been a key factor keeping housing affordability levels in a largely manageable state in recent years,” Craig Wright, RBC’s senior vice-president and chief economist, said in a statement.“The knock-on effect of the anticipated rise in rates would be most visible in high-priced markets.” read more

Auto insurers urge holiday season refresher as young drivers return home

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by David Friend, The Canadian Press Posted Dec 5, 2013 2:45 pm MDT TORONTO – It’s the time of year when students return home from school to celebrate the holidays with their families and start the negotiations to borrow their parents’ car.But insurance companies say both parents and young adults should consider several factors about auto coverage before the keys are handed over.Everything from safety habits to the specifics of the insurance policy can be discussed at the kitchen table, suggested RBC Insurance adviser Natalie Dupuis.“Have a sit down conversation to refresh their memory about distracted driving or winter driving,” said Dupuis, who serves as the bank’s senior product manager of auto insurance.“And really it doesn’t hurt at that point to call your insurance company and let them know you have a driver who’s going to have access to your vehicle for a week or two weeks.”If you haven’t done it before, this is a great time to lay out the facts of insurance to young drivers because there might be a disconnect between their logic and the thinking of the insurance industry.In most Canadian provinces, insurers are legally allowed to discriminate by gender, often charging hundreds of dollars more to male drivers under 25 because statistics show they’re more prone to accidents.These factors can serve as a gateway to a bigger conversation about road safety, and the financial dangers associated with ignoring insurance rules.For example, there are major risks if a youth lends his parents’ car to a friend, as the financial risks can fall to the parents.If that friend has an accident, then it’s the vehicle’s owner who would likely be sued, not necessarily the driver. If the accident was the fault of the friend who borrowed the car, the owner would shoulder the collision deductible and the accident would be counted against their driving record.Also, parents should make it clear that insurance won’t cover any damage to the vehicle if their son or daughter is driving while impaired.Insurers say that a quick review of a collision scenario can help alleviate some of the confusion of an already stressful situation.“Often the problem we see is somebody doesn’t know what to do,” said Steve Cohen, senior vice president of personal lines, underwriting and pricing at Aviva Canada.“One of the first things you should do is call your insurance company.”He warns against using the first tow truck that comes along, for example, since it may not take the vehicle to the most honest repair shop.Tracey Neziol, manager of marketing at the Neziol Insurance Group, notes that insurance payments for young adults living away from their parents — typically considered “occasional drivers” — depend on the distance between the family home and school residence.A young driver who lives only a couple hours away should be kept on their parent’s insurance policy in case they borrow the car while visiting for the weekend.“If they’re far away from home, parents can take you off the policy,” Nezoil said.However, all of these rules change when a young person graduates into the workforce. Once they’ve severed financial ties with their parents, mom and dad will need to reassess their insurance coverage to account for an occasional driver.At some insurers, there is a fine line between who qualifies as “occasional” and who is just borrowing the car during a short stay.The specifics would have to be negotiated with your insurance provider.Other auto insurance tips:— Don’t leave expensive items, including Christmas gifts, visible in car windows. Vehicle break-ins climb during the holidays.— Put your registration and insurance cards in your wallet, not your glove compartment, which prevents thieves from stealing a valid identification card. Don’t even leave a photocopy in the car. Auto insurers urge holiday season refresher as young drivers return home read more

Evan Turners No 21 to be raised to the rafters at Feb

Former OSU guard Evan Turner (21) is set to have his number retired on Feb. 16.Credit: Courtesy of TNSA fifth number will soon be hanging from the rafters of the Schottenstein Center to signify Ohio State men’s basketball immortality: Evan Turner’s No. 21.The former three-year OSU guard made Columbus his home from 2007-2010, winning the Naismith Award for the top player in the country for his final 2009-10 season. In that year, he averaged 20.4 points per game on 51.9 percent shooting and added 6.0 assists and 9.2 rebounds per contest.Turner left for the NBA after his junior season, where he went second overall to the Philadelphia 76ers. After parts of four seasons there and a brief stop in Indiana, the Chicago native now comes off the bench for the Boston Celtics, averaging about 27 minutes per game.The 6-foot-7 Turner was the fourth individual OSU player to win the national player of the year award. He finished his collegiate career 18th in OSU scoring with 1,517 points and ninth in assists with 414.The No. 21 is scheduled to be lifted on Feb. 16 in a halftime ceremony during a game against Michigan, the same opponent Turner hit a famous buzzer-beating 3-pointer against in the 2010 Big Ten tournament quarterfinals.Turner’s number will join John Havlicek’s No. 5, Jerry Lucas’s No. 11, Jim Jackson’s No. 22 and Gary Bradds’ No. 35 in the Schottenstein Center rafters. All but Havlicek won a national player of the year award.The game against Michigan is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. on Feb. 16. read more

Commentary Ohio States Deshaun Thomas has patience maturity to make it in

It’s been almost two weeks since Ohio State men’s basketball forward Deshaun Thomas announced he is leaving early to enter the 2013 NBA Draft. Being one of Thomas’ biggest supporters this past season, my heart sank when I heard about his decision, but it is one that I fully understand and respect. Something that I am struggling to understand is all the so-called “experts” saying that he will not have much success at the next level. Some say he is not quick enough to defend at an elite level and earn playing time. Some say he is too selfish and takes too many bad shots that will frustrate coaches. Some say that he is a “me first” player who will get frustrated when he does not get shots. This madness needs to stop now. Thomas led the Big Ten in scoring this past season at 19.8 points per game and scored in double digits in every game. He shot 83 percent from the free throw line, 34 percent from behind the arc and an impressive 45 percent overall. Thomas made all of that happen while being the main scoring option on a limited offensive team and thus getting the opposing team’s best defense thrown at him every game. Sure, sometimes he forced some outside shots that were cause for frustration and he was not as good as of a defender as some people might have liked. But when you play on the same team as junior guard Aaron Craft and sophomore guard Shannon Scott, you are never going to look as good defensively as you want. The truth of the matter is Thomas improved the defensive part of his game immensely during his three years at OSU. He never visibly got upset when he was not getting the ball, and when his shots were not going in, he wasn’t afraid to keep firing away with confidence. Take the NCAA tournament, for example. In both the third-round game against Iowa State and Sweet 16 matchup against Arizona, it was Craft and sophomore forward LaQuinton Ross, respectively, who made game-winning shots to help the Buckeyes advance. I will admit that I wanted Thomas to be the one with the ball in his hands at the end of the game, but after both of the shots went in, he was among the first to hug his teammates in excitement. I’ve never seen a player who enjoys playing basketball as much as Thomas. He rarely seems to be upset and is usually smiling. I know that I am biased, but after watching the OSU episode of “The Journey” on Big Ten Network, I could not help but think that Thomas is tremendously positive and has the right outlook toward life. I think those qualities will translate well to the NBA. At 6-foot-7, Thomas most likely will play wing in the NBA. His critics say that he is not quick enough to play on the outside and too short to play on the inside. However, Thomas possesses an exceptional mid-range jump shot and has proven that he can get it off thanks to a quick release. He also excels in isolation situations, a trait that will work well at the next level. The topic that is rarely mentioned is how much Thomas has matured in comparison to his freshman year at OSU. For example, during the Wisconsin game in Columbus on Jan. 29, he got the ball in transition with an opportunity to try and score against three defenders. He chose instead to wait for his teammates to get down the court to set up the offense. Two years ago, Thomas might have tried to be the hero and score in that situation. Something as simple as that shows how much he has grown and how smart he is as a player. I’m not saying that he should be a lottery pick. What I am saying is that the team that drafts him will get a player who loves the game, is willing to work hard and can score from anywhere on the court. I think he deserves to be selected in the first-round, and after going through the adjustment period that nearly every player goes through when he makes the jump from the college to professional ranks, he will be a productive player. No matter how you feel about it now, I’m sure Thomas will be fun to watch, and I know that I will certainly be tuning in. Eric Seger is a Big Ten Network Student U intern. read more

EYEWITNESS Tall tales…

…and integrityIf there was anything to that Pinocchio story, PM Moses Nagamootoo’s nose should be reaching further than his outstretched hands by now when it comes to the Integrity Commission he’s supposed to’ve launched over a year now. You remember the Integrity Commission, don’t you Dear Reader?? Yeah…that institution the PNC refused to participate in for a decade and a half because they said Bishop Randolph George, head of the Anglican Church, wasn’t a “fit and proper” person to head it!!So since then, even though it was the law of the land that all Members of Parliament report their income and assets to the Integrity Commission, the PNC MP’s refused to do so. So, who cared they were breaking the law – certainly not them! But when they slinked into Government leading the “APNU/AFC coalition”, suddenly they became all hot and sweaty about a “Code of Conduct” for their MP’s and Ministers. NOT the Integrity Commission.Raphael Trotman, then in charge of “Governance”, announced the Code would be built on a foundation of the Ten Principles of Public Life – accountability, dignity, diligence, duty, honour, integrity, loyalty, objectivity, responsibility and transparency!! That took months to compile!! During which time, of course, such “accountable” acts like collecting of private funds by a Minister of Government for constructing Jubilee Stadium slipped through the absent Code of Conduct net.Then “Governance” was handed off to Nagamootoo (who should’ve had it in the first place, under the Cummingsburg Accord). What to do about the Code of Conduct? You couldn’t very well implement it when warehouses had to be set up by Government Ministers, Ministers had to get scholarships when they were on their jobs and so on. But Nagamootoo – with 50 years of experience at this sort of thing – came to the rescue!!Like Christopher Columbus of yore, he discovered the Integrity Commission to which he would yoke the Code to that Commission. But hold it! That needed legislation to mesh the institutions. So the Code was passed to the Parliamentary Drafting office for “Drafting” – NOT stalling! And that’s where it stood while mega pharma contracts were hived off illegally to foreign companies who built arches and donated fridges…and suchlike.But now, two years later, Nagamootoo glided down from the mountain top and burning bush and announced the combined “Code of Conduct and Integrity Commission” is nigh upon us! While he didn’t have two engraved stone tablets, he assured us it will address, “issues of bribes, discrimination, gifts, conflict of interest, use of official influence, handling of classified information, use of public property, sexual misconduct and entertainment.”Does “use of official influence” exclude helping sons-in-law?…at Culture MinistryOver the last couple of hundred years, there’s been an ongoing debate about what’s usually purveyed as “culture”, is actually elitist “high culture”. There’s since been a sustained movement to rope in the more mass-based “culture of the people” into the swing of things. In Guyana, it seems the Culture Department in the Education Ministry has taken its mandate rather seriously. This was first exhibited at the Jubilee celebrations when the Ministry – under the direct direction of its Minister – introduced the “culture of confusion” that permeates every Guyanese mass event – from weddings to bus parks.At the ongoing Public Account Committee’s (PAC’s) hearings we now see the mass “culture of corruption” has also been taken up by the Culture Department of the Ministry. Quite blithely, the PS announced that somehow the employment of 50 persons slipped off the radar when it came to following the proper hiring procedures. But of course, it didn’t…really. They just introduced the “common touch” of hiring “we own” into the Ministry!…and fishy storiesOnce again, we’re hearing that tilapia will be the salvation of GuySuCo. Didn’t Burnham and the PNC try this back in the day when they were trying to make sugar workers redundant? That’s when the GNS failed to break GAWU’s 177-day “recognition” strike!!

WWII African American families museum topic

first_imgThe Clark County Historical Museum’s inaugural First Thursday event of the year — Deep Roots, Strong Branches — is a look at African American families who came to Vancouver during World War II and chose to stay.The Feb. 5 program will feature performances by local students, using a script made from original interviews with descendants of those families.It originated in a community project called First Families of Vancouver’s African American Community: From World War II to the Twenty-First Century. Jane Elder Wulff researched and wrote a book by that title in collaboration with the Vancouver branch of the NAACP, Clark College, YWCA Clark County and the museum. Copies of the book will be on sale.The project has led to an ongoing effort to highlight the history and contributions of Vancouver’s African American community, including the annual Back In The Day Reunion and the Vanport Media Project. “What this project shows is that after the war, in spite of pressure to make them leave, these young families stayed in Vancouver simply because they liked it and felt at home here,” Wulff said in a news release. “What’s more, they deliberately settled throughout the town and county, rather than all in one corner, to help build a broader community of good neighbors.”Admission is $4, $3 for seniors, $2 for children younger than 18, and free with a museum membership. Doors open at 5 p.m.last_img read more

Ford EcoSports Official Brochure Surfaces Online Ahead of Speculated Launch

first_imgThe official brochure of Ford’s upcoming EcoSport SUV has been leaked online, days ahead of its speculated launch in India.An auto enthusiast had recently posted the official brochure of the compact SUV on the Automotive India forum, indicating the imminent arrival of the vehicle. The brochure correlated well with previous leaks and rumours. EcoSport will come in four trims – Ambiente, Trend, Titanium and Titanium Optional trims. While the 1.5-litre petrol MT of EcoSport will be available in three variants – Ambiente, Trend and Titanium, the 1.5-litre AT will be offered only in the Titanium variant.(Click here to see the brochure)The Titanium and Titanium (O) trims will feature Smart Keyless entry and Push Button Start. The SYNC emergency system is exclusive for the top two models of EcoSport. Along with the Sync Emergency technology, the top variants will also get CD/MP3 player and a 3.5-inch multifunction display.The EcoSport SUV will be launched in seven colour variants and the interior will come in two colour options – charcoal black + warm neutral gray (offered on all variants except on Titanium (O)) and charcoal black + dark shadow gray (exclusive for the top end Titanium (O) model).Earlier leaked features of EcoSport suggested that the top-end variants which are powered by the 1.5-litre petrol engine will come with six-speed automatic transmission, while the Ambiente and Trend will have the five-speed manual transmission (MT). The base model of the EcoSport Ambient will lack safety features like ABS and airbags, but will have manual air-conditioning, manual rear windows and Bluetooth audio system.The Trend variant will come with ABS and EBD but will lack airbags. The other features of this variant include steering mounted audio controls, height adjustable drive seat and front and rear power windows. The Titanium variant will have power windows, steering mounted controls, automatic air conditioning system, Microsoft SYNC, 16″ alloys, dual airbags, reverse parking sensors and chrome exteriors. The top variant, Ford EcoSport Titanium Optional, will feature leather seats, push button start, Keyless Vehicle System and side and curtain airbags, along with the features seen in the Trend.With the latest leak, EcoSport aficionados seemed to have got a clear picture of the India-bound SUV. However, the price factor remains undecided. Going by the rumours, EcoSport is likely to be priced between ₹5.9 and ₹6 lakh, while the high-end variants may cost as much as ₹9 lakh. The India-bound models are also likely to come with high degree of localization as they will be produced locally. Ford India is expected to launch its much anticipated EcoSport on 11 June.last_img read more

Heres how UKs new Prime Minister Boris Johnson is connected to India

first_imgBoris Johnson, a leadership candidate for Britain’s Conservative Party, leaves his office in London, Britain July 22, 2019.ReutersThe election of Boris Johnson as UK Prime Minister did not come as a surprise to many after he won comfortably in the Tory leadership race. Johnson won 92,153 votes in the leadership election. His opponent Jeremy Hunt got 46,656 votes. As many as 159,320 members of the Conservative Party voted in the election.It was a well-known fact that Johnson had his eyes on No. 10 Downing Street for quite a while. He will take office on Wednesday after a meeting with Queen Elizabeth II at the Buckingham Palace.What many do not know is Johnson’s connection with India through his estranged wife, Marina Wheeler. Johnson was married to 54-year-old Wheeler for 26 years before they announced their separation in September 2018. They have four children.Wheeler is half-Indian and half-English. She is the daughter of Charles Wheeler, BBC’s Delhi correspondent during the 1960s, and Dip Singh, Charles’ second wife. They had married in New Delhi in 1961.Through her mother, Marina is connected to India with her family hailing from Sargodha, which is present-day Pakistan. Dip Singh’s family had moved to India after partition, Hindustan Times reports. During Wheeler’s and Johnson’s 26-year marriage, they had often visited India. Johnson got into hot water during the 2017 election when he mentioned how he brings Scotch Whiskey for his Indian relatives whenever he went to visit the country. Johnson made these comments during a speech at the Bristol Gurudwara.”I can’t think of any other British prime minister who has had such a strong Indian connection,” journalist Rahul Singh said. He is late Khushwant Singh’s son. Interestingly, Khushwanth Singh was Dip Singh’s brother-in-law through her first marriage to Daljit Singh, who was the acclaimed writer’s brother.last_img read more

3 killed in inmate hunt shootout near US border

first_imgPIEDRAS NEGRAS, Mexico (AP) – Authorities in Mexico say three gunmen have been killed after attacking police hunting for inmates who joined in a mass escape from a prison near the U.S. border.The Coahuila state prosecutor’s office says the gunmen were in a truck in a residential area of the border city of Piedras Negras when they fired on state police officers Thursday who were helping look for some of the 131 prisoners who fled a nearby prison early in the week. Investigators have yet to determine whether the dead gunmen were escapees. The statement says the truck matches records of a vehicle stolen in San Antonio, Texas.Authorities say the Zetas drug cartel orchestrated the prison break apparently with the help of prison personnel.

Budget Blues

first_img November 5, 2018 737 Views In an attempt to track consumer spending trends, a recent study by LendingTree ranked the 50 largest metro areas based on where consumers can most or least afford their financial obligations. According to LendingTree writer Vivian Giang, contrary to popular belief, some of the most expensive cities in U.S have people living well within a budget. The report draws attention to the link between good education and higher incomes, both factors that are of paramount significance to affordability. LendingTree analysts based their findings by comparing anonymized credit reporting data of LendingTree users from August 2018 and average household income from the latest U.S. Census Bureau data. The resulting ranking was based off info such as the number of credit inquiries in the past two years, the use of revolving credit lines, non-housing debt, and mortgage balances. Based off of a 100-point scale, the top 10 cities where people are best at spending within their means are:San Jose, California – 73.6San Francisco – 70.6Raleigh, North Carolina – 68.0Minneapolis – 67.5Boston – 66.5New York – 66.2 Milwaukee – 63.9Pittsburgh – 62.5Kansas City, Missouri – 62.3Denver – 62.1San Jose, San Francisco, Raleigh topped the list because they have a large number of residents earning high-incomes, which in turn helps them pay their bills and exorbitantly-priced houses. In sharp contrast, San Antonio was ranked at No. 50 on LendingTree’s list. While there is a general consensus that people are flocking to markets such as San Antonio, the report clearly reveals the plight of many in cities such as these to be struggling with their monthly payments. Las Vegas and Riverside are also among cities that have low-income earners, higher rates of unemployment and an increased expenditure on vehicles often beyond purchasing powers. The report also touches upon the perils of poor financial habits and a lack of financial education. Consolidating loans to cut down on multiple payments, free credit report monitoring to adjust debt repayment strategy, refinancing existing loans or mortgage to lower interest rates, avoiding hard credit inquiries, timely payment, and planned budgets are some of the solutions the report suggests as tools to manage money more efficiently.A better financial insight that emphasizes the need to spend wisely and education that ensures a high income seems to be the need of the hour to thrive in expensive and economically lucrative markets across the country.

In 2015 Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins led the

first_imgIn 2015, Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins led the league in completion percentage at 69.8.The Cardinals played the Redskins twice during McVay’s time at the helm of the offense, emerging with two home wins on Oct. 12, 2014 and Dec. 4, 2016. Now they will see McVay’s offense twice every season.McVay’s ability to construct a passing game may prove to be a boon to former first overall pick Jared Goff. The California product struggled in his first NFL season, starting in seven games and posting a 54.6 percent completion percentage with five touchdowns and seven interceptions. The Rams went 4-12 in their first year back in Los Angeles, and 0-7 with Goff as the starting quarterback.Joining McVay is one of the most seasoned coaching veterans in the NFL. Wade Phillips, 69, is set to join a handful of men to coach into their 70’s, including Titans assistant Dick LeBeau and Cardinals offensive assistant Tom Pratt. He began his NFL coaching career in 1976 with the Houston Oilers. Since then, he’s been employed by nine other franchises in various capacities over the last 40 years.Over the last two seasons, Phillips served as the defensive coordinator for the Denver Broncos. Under his leadership, the Broncos had the best overall defense and best passing defense in 2015. The Los Angeles Rams made quite a splash with their coaching staff on Thursday, hiring Sean McVay as head coach and Wade Phillips as defensive coordinator.McVay, 30, is the youngest head coach in NFL history. The former receiver for Miami University of Ohio worked for the Washington Redskins as an offensive assistant, tight ends coach and offensive coordinator between 2010 and 2016.His work proved especially transformative in the 2016 season. The Redskins posted one of the best offenses in the league, ranking 12th in points with 24.8 per game and third in yards with 403.4. Washington also had the second-best passing offense. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Their ability to shut down opposing passing games helped Denver win Super Bowl XL and earned Phillips Assistant Coach of the Year. Denver repeated as the NFL’s best pass defense in 2016, but finished fourth overall.Together, McVay and Phillips may be able to revive a Rams franchise that has not posted an above-.500 record since 2003. Since 2010, the Rams have not finished higher than third in the NFC West, with the 49ers, Seahawks and Cardinals all rising at various times to keep them down.With a young coach who has shown proficiency in designing an offense and a longtime mastermind covering the defensive side, the Rams staff may make the NFC West a litter tougher for the other three teams.

Ramesh was quoted as saying by The New Indian Express. With Inputs from PTI The synchronisation of the next general election with the Assembly electionsof 2018 to set a pattern may not be the only reason why the Narendra Modi government is said to be considering bringing forward the 2019 general election by a year While the need to evolve a system where the major elections are held simultaneously has been talked about for some time the present conjecture relates mainly to the calculations about the prospects of the ruling party at the Centre The belief seemingly is that it will be better for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to cash in on whatever gains it has made in the last three-and-a-half-years rather than wait for another 20 months or so when its inadequacies on the employment front and in relieving the distress of farmers may become more apparent It will serve the party better therefore to advance the dates of the general election when the Modi magic hasn’t quite faded as a recent opinion poll has shown and the opposition continues to be in disarray Although the government cannot but derive considerable satisfaction from the opposition’s discomfiture it cannot be unaware of the fact that it still has pockets of influence as is evident from the marginal improvement in the Congress’s position in the recent Madhya Pradesh local elections and the Trinamool Congress’s sweeping victories in the West Bengal municipal polls File image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi Reuters The BJP also knows that it has to guard against the anti-incumbency factor affecting the party’s prospects in the assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh Chhattisgarh Rajasthan and Gujarat next year Even if it wins a loss of seats compared to the previous elections can be disheartening on the eve of the general election if it is held in 2019 It will also be demoralising for the BJP if the Congress wins in Karnataka and the CPM in Tripura Holding the general election earlier will enable the BJP to avoid such uncomfortable possibilities What the BJP will have to remember is that people often vote against the ruling party because of dissatisfaction with its performance even if the opponent is weak This happened in Goa and Manipur where the Congress was the first party before it lost this position because of the BJP’s success in weaning away a number of legislators However such defections could not hide the fact that there was dissatisfaction with the BJP The same disenchantment has also been voiced by a fairly wide section of the people in recent weeks as can be seen from the protest letters written to the prime minister by retired bureaucrats and army veterans and the processions taken out by scientists about the encouragement of obscurantist practices by the ruling dispensation These grievances have nothing to do with unemployment and farmers’ distress which are undoubtedly the two most serious problems faced by the government Instead these are the grouses of the average middle-class householders who have been feeling uneasy about the growing climate of intolerance although it probably does not affect them in a personal capacity Even then the depredations of the gau rakshaks along with the possibility of the police entering private homes to check whether anyone is eating beef as the Maharashtra government wants to do the competitive jingoism in TV channels the foul language used by the BJP’s supporters against the party’s opponents in the social media the distortion of history including the blanking out of Jawaharal Nehru’s name from the speeches of high dignitaries are some of the trends which can cause unease among the common people No one can predict the cumulative effect of these feelings over the next two years along with the slowing down of the economy which is a prime cause of the unemployment problem Although early general elections can enable the government to make hay while the sun is still shining albeit faintly it is only a temporary palliative As of now a more longstanding solution of the current ills is not visible As a result the BJP has to continue to depend on the faith which the average person still places in the prime minister’s ability to tide over the difficult situations through hard work The government is also fortunate that it hasn’t had to face the kind of corruption charges which brought down its predecessor and still hobbles many of the opposition parties At the same time it is obvious that the expectations of rapid economic advancement which are behind Modi’s success have been largely belied No wonder the "achhey din" phrase is not heard any more The BJP’s other problem is its total dependence on Modi which is not unlike what it was in the Congress in Indira Gandhi’s heyday It is a scenario which is not politically healthy for a party as can be seen from the Congress’s present plight when it is pathetically dependent on the dynasty despite its fading charisma The BJP on its part has to capitalise on Modi’s popularity as long as it brings in the votes Hence the need for the general election next year where you get vague labels like just ‘salmon’ or ‘wild salmon.
