The bonuses were part of a retention plan to keep key employees with the company during and after its recently completed debt restructuring, which reduced its total debt of $648 million by about $307 million.“It’s not unusual” for a company to implement such a program during these types of transactions, said Postmedia’s vice-president of communications, Phyllise Gelfand. Unions representing Canadian journalists want five Postmedia executives to reject bonuses totalling $2.275 million as the struggling newspaper chain continues staff reductions.The company awarded Postmedia president and CEO Paul Godfrey $900,000, CFO Doug Lamb $450,000, COO Andrew MacLeod $425,000, legal and general counsel Jeffrey Haar $300,000, and National Post president Gordon Fisher $200,000, according to financial documents filed Wednesday.The money will be paid out over three instalments with the first cash payment already distributed on July 15. The next two payments will be made Dec. 2 of this year and July 14, 2017. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Login/Register With: However, one of the five executives, Haar, will leave Postmedia at the end of November, she said. Gelfand could not confirm whether Haar is still entitled to the next two payouts of his retention bonus.The Communications Workers of America Canada President Martin O’Hanlon said in a statement that the executives are acting in an unconscionable manner by accepting the extra money while asking employees to volunteer for buyouts or risk another round of layoffs.“This is an absolute disgrace,” he said, calling on the five men to return the money.Unifor Local 87-M, which represents Ontario’s unionized newspaper workers, called on the executives to give the money to Postmedia’s employees.“That money should be spent to retain workers,” said union president Paul Morse in a statement.Postmedia said last month it was looking to cut salary costs by 20 per cent.The newspaper chain offered its employees voluntary buyouts in late October. The company has not yet announced whether the program reached that target, but has said layoffs may be necessary otherwise.As of the end of August this year, Postmedia had 4,233 full-time equivalent employees, according to its financial documents — down from 4,733 a year prior. In January, the company laid off 90 people and merged newsrooms in four cities where it owns two newspapers in each market.Gelfand said the company had no comment on either the union’s demand for the executives to return their extra pay, or the optics of simultaneously handing out hundreds of thousands of dollars in bonuses and working towards reducing salary expenses.Despite the bonus, Godfrey’s total compensation fell by nearly $100,000 for 2016, while that of the other four executives rose this year by $29,800 on the low end and $113,456 on the high end. Each of their base salaries remained the same as in 2015.Last year, the five executives and Wayne Parrish, the company’s former COO, received bonuses for their work when Postmedia acquired Sun Media’s English-language newspapers and digital properties.By Aleksandra Sagan – The Canadian Press Advertisement Twitter Advertisement Advertisement Facebook
New Delhi: Hitting back at the AAP, cricketer-turned-politician Gautam Gambhir Sunday asserted that he possessed only one voter identity card, adding that the ruling party in Delhi was making baseless allegations against him as it did not have any vision for the people. Gambhir is fighting against AAP’s Atishi from the East Delhi Lok Sabha constituency this general elections. “I have only one voter ID card from Rajender Nagar. I used to live with my maternal grandparents as a child at Ramjas Road (in Karolbagh), but I never voted from or applied for any voter identity card from there,” he told PTI. The BJP candidate was responding to Atishi’s claim that he had two voter identity cards from Rajender Nagar and Karolbagh constituencies. He alleged the AAP candidate was making allegations against him as she had nothing to talk about with voters during campaigning. “When you have no vision for the people or nothing else to talk about, you make allegations like these,” Gambhir said. Meanwhile, a Delhi court had on Friday decided to hear Atishi’s criminal complaint against Gambhir in this regard on May 1. The AAP candidate had filed the complaint against Gambhir for allegedly enrolling as a voter in more than one constituency in violation the Representation of the People Act(RPA). She had also raised objection over the nomination papers filed by the former cricketer which were rejected by the returning officer of the polls. Gambhir said he believed in “positive politics” and would campaign with a vision to make East Delhi one of the best Lok Sabha constituencies in Delhi, and avoid indulging in blame game with his opponents in the polls. Congress has fielded former Delhi minister Arvinder Singh Lovely from the seat.
Rabat – A Sale court has sentenced three Essaouira terrorists who planned an attack on the Gnaoua World Music Festival to seven years in prison.The Criminal Chamber of First Instance in charge of terrorism cases sentenced the three jihadists to seven years in prison on Thursday, as reported by the daily Al Akhbar in its weekend edition.The court sentenced the first defendant to three years in prison, while the other two were sentenced to two years each. The three terrorists were arrested in June 2017 by the Central Bureau of Judicial Investigations (BCIJ).They were planning terrorist attacks on the city’s world-renowned Gnaoua festival, in addition to the Jewish cemeteries in the city.When the ISIS-affiliated cell was dismantled, the BCIJ seized knives and computer equipment at the jihadists’ homes.The Central Bureau also found texts in which the three terrorists pledged allegiance to the leader of the Daesh terrorist organization, Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi.Since 2002, the BCIJ has dismantled 167 cells, including 46 affiliated to ISIS; 2,963 suspected terrorists, 277 of whom already had criminal records, have been arrested and referred to the judiciary courts.

FYI Resources has appointed Orelogy Consulting as mining study manager for the Cadoux project, responsible for site operations design and scheduling of the high purity alumina (HPA) economic studies.The consultant will take on early-stage analysis of mining at Cadoux, in Western Australia, while providing an overview of “mining requirements, scheduling, stockpiles, waste dumps, tailings storage facilities, and the associated logistics, capital requirements, key challenges and risks”, FYI said.FYI’s Cadoux project has a total indicated and inferred resource base of 16.1 million tonnes at 11.76% Al, 0.51% Fe and 0.37% Ti. The geology of the kaolin deposit – shallow and flat lying – means it should be amenable to a low-cost, free digging mining operation, while the company’s kaolin to HPA process flowsheet has been successfully demonstrated with an HPA grade of 99.99% achieved, plus a mass HPA recovery of 97.2% attained.Back in January, FYI employed GR Engineering Services to carry out a prefeasibility study on a processing facility able to treat 120,000 tonnes per year of kaolin ore for feed to a specially designed beneficiation and refining plant producing up to 10,000 t/y of HPA.The deliverables for Orelogy’s mining study include:Electronic data package of the block model, topography, pit design(s)Cutoff grade determination, stockpile binning methodologyROM/stockpile layoutWaste dumping strategyRehandle strategyRehabilitation strategy and closure plansDewatering plans/issuesGrade control plansManaging trafficabilityCost estimates.Orelogy has also been engaged to undertake tradeoff studies to determine the most appropriate fleet size for campaign mining, continuous mining and single versus double shift.FYI’s managing direct Roland Hill said: “Orelogy have a good reputation in the industry for the mining phase of the study and we are delighted to have them on board and take responsibility for this aspect of the HPA strategy.”
One of the features of Kinect v2 on Xbox One that Microsoft keeps highlighting is the voice control it offers up. You can turn on your Xbox One with a voice command. Neat. Kinect can also figure out who is holding a controller, a feature that will be put to good use in Killer Instinct.But it looks as though such features aren’t going to be limited to Xbox One. Sony has hinted at similar features being available when you use the PlayStation Camera with PS4.No specifics have been divulged yet, but a spokesperson for Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has confirmed that the PlayStation Camera is capable of voice recognition and therefore voice command input. Will it allow you to turn the PS4 on? Maybe, but Sony has said it will talk about the feature more in the near future.The Camera is also capable of facial recognition, which when combined with voice control must mean it can handle many of the same inputs and automatic game setting changes the Xbox One with Kinect has. Motion control won’t be on a par with Kinect, but so far the focus (by Microsoft) has been on promoting voice and gamer recognition. I’m still waiting to see the compelling reason to use motion control on Xbox One.Further evidence of these features comes from the GameStop Expo that was held in Las Vegas last week. A slide Sony showed claims voice and facial recognition are features they have implemented. You can see it for yourself above and at the 5m 30s mark in the video below:Is this another blow for Microsoft? Maybe. It depends just how close in functionality the PS4 Camera is to the Kinect in terms of voice control and player recognition. If PS4 can match it, then it removes such features from the equation as to why you should choose Xbox One over PS4.

NASA’s DART spacecraft will blast off to the asteroid 65803 Didymos to crash into its moon. NASA If an asteroid was shooting towards Earth, what would our options be? Sure, we could send up a ragtag team of miners to drill into the asteroid, plant a nuke and blast it to smithereens. But if NASA has its way, we won’t need to train miners to be astronauts — it has other plans to deflect those deadly asteroids. (A lucky thing too, because it makes far more sense to teach already-trained astronauts to use a drill rather than putting miners through astronaut school, but that’s another matter entirely). NASA is prepping for a (potential) doomsday outcome with the Double Asteroid Redirection Test — a mission that will test whether we can crash a spacecraft into an asteroid and knock it off course, thus saving humankind and preventing us from ever sending Bruce Willis into space. In this week’s episode of Watch This Space, we take a look at the DART mission to 65803 Didymos — a binary asteroid (complete with its own companion “moonlet”) that’s currently orbiting the sun out past Earth. Now playing: Watch this: NASA wants to save the Earth from asteroids (with a giant… Share your voice According to NASA, the moonlet (or “Didymoon” as it’s been nicknamed) is a perfect example of an asteroid of the size and type that could crash into Earth. So, the space agency wants to send its DART spacecraft up there as early as Dec. 2020 to blast towards the 150-metre-wide moonlet and crash into its surface. Imagine it like a game of pool. If you need to knock the 8 ball in the corner pocket, you knock the cue ball into its side and it’ll shoot off on an angle. By sending its cue ball careening into the moonlet, NASA will measure how the impact changes the moonlet’s momentum and hopefully get a better idea of how asteroids can be redirected in future.To learn more about the DART, the partner mission being run by the European Space Agency and what all this has to do with Elijah Wood and the film “Labyrinth” (there are connections, we promise) then check out this week’s episode of Watch This Space.

Participants pose for a photograph at a roundtable on development and possibilities of nursing and midwifery in Bangladesh at CA Bhaban in Karwan Bazar on Saturday. Photo: Sabina YasminHighlighting the importance of nurses and midwives for overall improvement of the healthcare system and attainment of Sustainable Development Goals, stakeholders recommended raising the profile of the professions, establishing adequate nursing institutions, imparting proper training and ensuring workplace safety.Stakeholders hailed the overall development of the sectors in recent years but said the ratio of nurses to physicians is still inadequate.Competent and trained midwives are important components in reducing child and maternal death, several speakers said at a roundtable on Saturday. To attain the SDG target, Bangladesh needs to decrease maternal mortality to 70 per 100,000 which now stands at 172.Prothom Alo, in association with the World Health Organization (WHO), organised the roundtable on development and possibilities of nursing and midwifery in Bangladesh, at the CA Bhaban in Karwan Bazar.Former advisor to a caretaker government and executive chairperson of Power and Participation Research Center (PPRC) Hossain Zillur Rahman said, “These professions were once neglected but the scenario is changing nowadays, thanks to changing political will and commitment in this regard.”A good foundation has been created in the nursing sector, but now we need increasing quality of nurses and their numbers, he added.Referring to the recent rape and killing incident of a Kishoreganj nurse, speakers called for ensuring safety of the professionals.Highlighting the importance of midwives in cutting down the maternal mortality rate, United Nations Population Fund’s (UNFPA) country representative Asa Torkelson said, “Every year 5,200 women die from preventable causes, which means one hundred women die every week. We can together stop this weekly tragedy.”Directorate General of Nursing and Midwifery’ director general of Tandra Sikder said there is demand for professional nurses from Bangladesh in countries such as Australia and Libya.“But, we have our own demand for nurses and midwives to attain SDG and that’s why we can’t export our quality professionals in these sectors,” she added.Hussain Zillur said Bangladesh can think about exporting qualified nurses and midwives as it will help in gathering knowledge from foreign countries as well earning foreign remittance. Former advisor to a caretaker government Hossain Zillur Rahman speaks at the roundtable on development and possibilities of nursing and midwifery in Bangladesh at CA Bhaban in Karwan Bazar on Saturday. Photo: Sabina YasminTandra also said inadequate infrastructure and teachers for midwifes are one of the main challenges in these sectors.World Health Organisation’s (WHO) representative to Bangladesh Bardan Jung Rana called for empowering nursing professionals by incorporating them at a policy making level.“The community healthcare system did a lot to achieve MDG goals, but the country needs more qualified and competent professionals to attain SDG targets,” he added.The health and family planning ministry’s additional director general Nasima Sultana said 12-13 thousand nurses are passing out every year from 99 public and 218 private institutions, which is much less than required.Nasima called for increasing nursing colleges and institutes to meet the demand.She also recommended upgrading the nurses with graduate, post graduate and doctoral degrees to first class, and increasing ratio of nurses to physicians.Bangladesh Nursing and Midwifery Council’s registrar Suraiya Begum said Bangladesh can achieve 7 SDG goals by investing in midwifery.BRAC’s vice chairperson Mushtaque Chowdhury said midwifery would not develop if it is not seen as an independent profession.BRAC’s head of midwifery education programme Selina Amin emphasised the need to create an enabling environment for midwives.Obstetrical and Gynaecological Society of Bangladesh’s (OGSB) general secretary Saleha Begum Chowdhury said number of caesarean section births will decrease once midwives are given proper training and knowledge.Former vice chancellor of Bangladesh University of Health Sciences Liaquat Ali, Bangladesh Midwifery Society’s president Momtaz Begum, Bangladesh Nurses Association’s president Ismat Ara Parvin, among others spoke at the roundtable moderated by Prothom Alo associate editor Abdul Quayyum.
Pusheen The Cat1/28What Cat Con would be complete without Pusheen the Cat, the world’s most adorable internet cat! Fans lined up to try their luck at winning this over-sized plush Pusheen.<><> It’s a known fact that the Internet loves cats. There are Instagram famous cats, your Facebook is full of cat memes, there’s even a plethora of monthly subscription boxes for you to get your cat wearables (for you, and your feline friend). Now cat fans have a place they can step away from the cyber realm and do all those internet cat things in person – at CatCon LA.We went to check it out, to see what exactly you would find at a CatCon LA, and it was everything you would imagine and more. And yes, there were cats. One of the big efforts Susan Michals, CatCon LA’s organizer put in place was an adoption event in partnership with the SPCA of Los Angeles. The turnout was high for people looking to bring home a new cat friend, and we saw many people heading out with a kitty, or two, in their own cat-board boxes.Also, some of the Internet’s hottest celebri-cats were on hand for meet and greets with their humans in tow to talk about what makes them so special. Lil Bub and his Dude took center stage all weekend. Nala and Coffee were there as well – Nala is known simply for being a famous cat on the Internet. So well known, that people commonly ask just why this cute kitty has so many Instagram followers?And what cat convention would be complete without some crazy cool cat fashion. The second annual event hosted a Furr-ocious Fashion Faceoff. We approve of the cat pillow couture gown.Between all the cat bow-ties, automated litter boxes, and cat clothing for you and your kitty, it was the story of Kyle that really stood out for us. We walked by a booth dedicated to this black and white kitty with a striking mustache, and the human there said “This is Kyle, he witnessed a murder!” in the most upbeat, cheery tone that you just had to laugh. Maybe they were selling a graphic novel about Kyle the Caped Cat Crusader and he is now a vigilante out to save Catlandia from the evil Pug.Actually, no. Kyle was rescued from a home where his owner was killed in a domestic violence attack. So his new humans wanted to do something to help – and as Kyle grew in popularity, they started raising awareness and money to help people get away from abusive situations. As statistics show, one of the reasons people stay in abusive relationships is they are afraid to leave behind their families, including their pets.Kyle’s humans have a great sense of humor, though, and love this old cat with 3 teeth and a myriad of other quirks. And so does the Internet, which makes for quite the fan club.If you love cats, and I mean like obsess over them and want to hug all of them all the time always, CatCon LA was the place for you. Judging how it was a third larger than it’s inaugural year, we can expect an even bigger spectacle next year! I just don’t know if my wallet can handle it. Because yeah, I ended up coming home with one of those cryogenic looking litter boxes. But I’ll never have to scoop cat poop again.
Cooch Behar: State North Bengal Development minister Rabindranath Ghosh on Thursday handed over land rights to several enclave dwellers of Cooch Behar. “The state has always stood by the side of the enclave dwellers.

District Magistrate Cooch Behar, Kaushik Saha, welcomed the move of the state government.
Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa is famous for a number of reasons, including her enigmatic smile. But the master’s painting of the still unknown woman is not the only work of his full of mystery. Perhaps his greatest work, The Last Supper, which depicts Jesus’ last meal with his disciples and which adorns the wall of the Santa Maria della Grazie church in Milan, is also an enigma and filled with hidden meaning.Here are some of the hidden meanings in The Last Supper, some of which are still being debated over five hundred years after its creation:“John” may be Mary MagdaleneDetail of the “beloved disciple” to Jesus’s right, identified by art historians as the apostle John, but speculated in The Da Vinci Code and similar works to actually be Mary Magdalene in disguiseAt the right hand of Jesus in the painting is the disciple John, claimed by some biblical scholars to be “the disciple whom Jesus loved” in the book bearing his John’s name. But take a closer look at “John”.Many art and biblical scholars actually believe the person at the right hand of Jesus in the painting is a woman, most likely, Mary Magdalene. He/she is the only person in the picture wearing a necklace/pendant/charm – and not a small one, either. Many say this shows the person is most likely a woman, and at the very least, not John.Leonardo da Vinci, Study for the Last Supper – headMany believe that medieval Christian leaders, seeing the woman in the picture, made a conscious effort to call the figure “John”, otherwise there is not a full tally of disciples, and a woman is sitting at the right side of Jesus, the most preferred and honored place.You can also see that many of the figures on the right side of the table seem to be talking to or at Mary, and Jesus appears to be engaged with those on the left, who reflect the concern the disciples must have felt when told one among them would betray Christ. Look closer at “John” and you’ll see a resemblance to Mona Lisa, which was painted five years later.Leonardo might have been sending a numerological messageThe Last SupperIn the Book of Matthew, Jesus says that the one who dipped his hand into the bowl with him is the “betrayer”. In the Middle East/Mediterranean of the time, in Leonardo’s time, and in some places today, many times there is a single bowl on the table holding a sauce or olive oil.Each person at the table takes a turn to dip their bread into it. Most times, this is a circular table with a bowl or pot at the center. Leonardo placed Christ and the Disciples at a rectangular table. This lends itself to a better view and is an artistic convention at the time, but did Leonardo do it for another reason?To dip your bread while the person before you is doing it is highly disrespectful, and can be taken that the person doing it thinks he is better than those before him. In the painting, Judas has also knocked over the salt, bringing bad luck.A study for The Last Supper from Leonardo’s notebooks showing nine apostles identified by names written above their headsFinally, da Vinci had those at the table sitting in a pattern: 33133. Consider this: da Vinci ignored convention in his creation by not placing halos above Jesus and his followers.He also may have placed a secret message with his grouping of the people in the painting. In the Bible, Jesus tells the Disciples to drink his blood (wine) and flesh (bread) in remembrance of him.Related Video: Exhibition of Leonardo Da Vinci Designs at Science Museum:He further says that only those that do will have eternal life. Some scholars believe that Leonardo, who was not only a skeptic and a scholar, but a man who was accused of homosexual acts as a young man in Florence. At the time, this assuredly would have put his redemption in heaven at risk. By placing the disciples and Jesus in the 33133 group, some argue that Leonardo was pointing to Lamentations 3:31-33 “For no one is cast off from the Lord forever.”Judas is painted in a stereotypical way to depict Jews and is obviously outside the “circle”The painting as it looked in the 1970sLook at the painting. Among all of the people, Judas (to the right of Jesus and “John”) is the only one with dark skin and a crooked nose, both prejudicial ways to portray Jews both before Leonardo and since.Judas is also seen with the bag of money prominently placed in front of him (in John 12:6 it states that Judas was a thief, not to mention the thirty pieces of silver paid to him to betray Jesus), and milk in his glass, and not the wine that everyone else is drinking, placing him outside of the inner circle and indicating his fall from grace.Read another story from us: 5 Famous Paintings with Crazy Hidden ImagesIf Judas had been drinking wine, which Jesus clearly indicates is his “blood” and the way to salvation, he would have been forgiven, but Leonardo reflects Judas’ station as an outsider and unforgiven.

They used 54,400 kilos (120,000 pounds) of sawdust.“Thanks to all who have made possible the longest sawdust carpet in the world,” said Archbishop Óscar Vian, who joined a procession in which youth volunteers carrying two images of Jesus passed over the multi-colored surface.“At a moment when Guatemalans unite and take on a common objective, we can demonstrate great things,” said Victor Martínez, a member of Guatemala City’s municipal council.Guatemala City’s first record-breaking carpet last year was an initiative to invite Pope Francis to visit.The pope has not yet confirmed he will come. People walk in Guatemala City on Thursday beside a 2,012 meter-long carpet of flowers and colored sawdust. AFP Facebook Comments
in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has issued a request for information regarding its consumer complaint database after going live with an enhanced version of the database last week, according to the CFPB.The CFPB’s new enhanced public-facing consumer complaint database, which went live on June 25, included more than 7,700 consumer accounts of complaints that consumers have had with financial companies with regards to the way their mortgages, accounts, credit cards, debt collection, and other services are handled. The Bureau published the request for information to determine whether there are ways to help the public more easily understand the information presented in the database and how consumers can compare the information the database contains.”In an effort to continue dialogue on easier ways to compare complaint handling performance, the Bureau requests specific suggestions from market participants, consumers, and other stakeholders on data normalization and its proper implementation within the database,” CFPB said in the request for information.The Bureau reported as of June 1, 2015, it has handled more than 627,000 complaints from the time it opened its doors in July 2011. According to the CFPB, about 28 percent of those complaints have been mortgage-related, making it the category with the largest share (debt collection was second with 25 percent). The Bureau says it forwards the complaints to companies and works to get a response, typically within 15 days.The CFPB launched its Consumer Complaint Database in June 2012. At that time, the database included basic individual-level information about the complaints such as the date the complaint was submitted, the issue, the company being complained about, the type of product, and how the company handled the complaint. The consumer who submitted the complaint remained anonymous, though their ZIP code was included.The Bureau finalized a policy in March 2015 allowing consumers to publicly share their narratives when submitting complaints to the database. More than half of the complaints received have been shared publicly since the CFPB finalized the policy. The publishing of consumer narratives from the complaint database has been highly controversial; financial companies, including many mortgage servicers and banks, expressed concern that the Bureau was publishing one-sided, unverified information that may be damaging to companies’ reputation.”The purpose of this request for information is to solicit and collect input from the public on how data are presented in the database,” the CFPB said in the request for information. “The Bureau is requesting feedback on best practices for ‘normalizing’ the raw complaint data it makes available via the database so they are easier for the public to use and understand. To normalize data is to transform ‘raw’ data so that they may be compared in meaningful ways. This transformation increases the interoperability of ‘raw’ data—that is, the extent to which different users can share and make use of the data because they have a common understanding of its meaning.”In order to provide more context and insight to the complaints received, The Five Star Institute and Black Knight Financial Services released a report titled Analysis and Study of CFPB Consumer Complaint Data Related to Mortgage Servicing Activities in April. In the report, Black Knight and Five Star compared the Bureau’s two predominant mortgage complaint categories – servicing and default – with loan trends, and also included publicly available data from both the CFPB and mortgage servicers as reported from the CFPB database.Click here to read the full request for information.
