VICTORIA, B.C. – The B.C. government and Halfway River First Nation have agreed to work together to recommend that a 6,000-hectare conservancy known as Tsaa Nuna be established in an area of cultural significance to the community.The agreement also calls for the two governments to collaborate on land and wildlife stewardship in the First Nation’s territory.A news release says there will be joint planning in a portion of Tsaa Nuna and the two sides will seek to agree on development of natural gas resources. Halfway River is to receive a share of annual resource revenue. The First Nation is to receive one-time funding of $5.8 million for health, education, language and culture, community infrastructure, economic development, human resources and environmental stewardship programs.The Halfway River First Nation is located about 100 kilometres northwest of Fort St. John and has about 280 members.
OTTAWA — The Federal Court has approved a settlement agreement for survivors of so-called Indian day schools.Under the terms of the settlement, survivors will be able to apply for individual compensation for harms, including physical and sexual abuse, linked to attending one of the federally run institutions.Crown-Indigenous Relations Minister Carolyn Bennett said the court’s decision marks recognition of the hard work undertaken by all sides toward finding a lasting and meaningful resolution for former students and their families.A 90-day opt-out period and a 60-day appeal period will begin now that the settlement has been approved, meaning that any class member who does not agree with its terms can choose to remove themselves from the process.Nearly 200,000 Indigenous children attended more than 700 Indian day schools beginning in the 1920s, often enduring trauma that in some cases included physical and sexual abuse.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.The schools operated separately from the residential school system and were not included in the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement approved in 2006.
In a letter on behalf of the Non-Aligned Movement addressed to the President of the Council, Ambassador Dumisani S. Kumalo of South Africa says the group notes that consultations are currently under way, particularly among the Council’s five permanent members, on a possible new resolution on Iraq.”We believe that the proposed elements of such a resolution include issues that are of importance to the entire membership of the United Nations and the future role of the United Nations in the maintenance of international peace and security,” the letter states.”All States Members and Permanent Observes of the United Nations should be afforded an opportunity to express their views on these important developments that directly affect the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations,” it adds.Meanwhile, Secretary-General Kofi Annan has asked to see the Council President for the month of October, Ambassador Martin Belinga-Eboutou of Cameroon, and a number of other representatives “to take the pulse” on where things stand with Security Council action on Iraq before he leaves tomorrow for China, a UN spokesman said.
“You have cross-border attacks and we are looking at the possibility of putting UN observers or some international presence on the border and working with the Government of Chad to ensure that the refugees who are in Chad are protected and to ensure that cross-border attacks would also be minimized,” he told reporters in Nairobi.“But we have not given up the idea of strengthening the force in Darfur because you need to do the two. If you abandon Darfur and try to strengthen the Chad side of the border, it is not going to work,” Mr. Annan added, shortly before leaving for Ethiopia where tomorrow he will co-host a high-level meeting on Darfur arranged with the African Union (AU).At least 200,000 people are estimated to have been killed in Darfur as a result of the conflict between Government forces, allied militias and rebels seeking greater autonomy, and more than 2 million others have been displaced.But the Government has rejected the expansion of the UN Mission in Sudan (UNMIS) to the troubled region and at present the UN assists a 7,000-strong African Union mission (AMIS) and is currently working on a $21 million support package.UNMIS today reported more militia attacks in South Darfur, with villages being burned and their inhabitants attacked by Arab nomads, while in West Darfur, international non-governmental organization (NGO) staff had to be evacuated from two camps for internally displaced persons (IDPs) because of growing insecurity.These are just the latest reports of daily violence that occurs throughout Darfur and which has also spread to the neighbouring Central African Republic (CAR). Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations, Jean-Marie Guéhenno, said yesterday that a UN fact-finding mission would visit Chad and the CAR next week.In a related development, Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Jan Egeland met today with senior Sudanese Government representatives in Khartoum, a UN spokesman told reporters in New York.Tomorrow, Mr. Egeland is scheduled to travel to El Geneina, the capital of West Darfur, to meet with local leaders and NGO representatives. On Friday, he is scheduled to head to El Fasher, the capital of North Darfur, before returning to Khartoum on Saturday.

Lazio boss Simone Inzaghi admits Napoli deserved their 2-1 victory but fumed at the sending off of Francesco Acerbi.Jose Callejon and Arkadiusz Milik put the host in the ascendancy before half-time before Ciro Immobile pulled one back for Inzaghi’s men.“Napoli played better than we did and certainly deserved to win, but having said that, on the first yellow card, Callejon was clever to get in front of Acerbi and then stop, ensuring the defender had to run into him,” the Coach told Football Italia.“As for the second booking, he clearly got the ball and it was not even a foul. I noticed that, I got angry, but these incidents do keep happening to us.”The Biancocelesti improved considerably when Joaquin Correa came off the bench.“Correa is a resource for us and he had started the last six games, missing the Coppa Italia because he had flu. Our first-half performance was bad, we were too passive, Napoli deservedly took the lead.“There were 25 minutes left when we got back into the game, with XI against XI who knows how it would’ve ended? It’s a regret, but we have been unlucky recently.Top 5 Serie A players to watch for next weekend’s activity Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 11, 2019 With the international activity cooling down for the next month, we go back to the Top 5 players to watch in Serie A next…“We went down to 10 men against Inter as well, although I had no complaints about the Senad Lulic second yellow. This evening, I didn’t agree with either of the two bookings for Acerbi.“As I said, Napoli didn’t steal anything, they deserved to win. They hit the woodwork four times, although the Jose Callejon chance was offside so wouldn’t have counted, and we went too deep for long periods.“It’s going to be a fight to the end between many different teams for a place in Europe.”#NapoliLazioLazio first goal scored by Immobile pic.twitter.com/9Z9KSzgzGK— Abdullah (@Osty_99) January 20, 2019
website.Kids also stuffed dreidels with sandy candy and built menorahs out of marshmallows. And there were potato latkes with apple sauce, jelly doughnuts, chocolate sauce, whipped cream and sprinkles.Now that’s sweet. And it all fits the theme of Hanukkah, according to Rabbi Shmulik Greenberg of the Chabad Jewish Center of Clark County, because Hanukkah is a time for celebration.“Always, we should practice our religion out of joy, not out of guilt,” Greenberg told the crowd of approximately 200 that turned up despite chilly weather and drizzling rain.He said freedom of religion is spreading all over the world, and Jews are able to celebrate Hanukkah as never before. This was the sixth annual menorah lighting in Vancouver, he said.
Intel has achieved 100% gender pay parity throughout the United States.Its Annual report 2015: leading and learning- strong progress and more to do, published on 3 February 2016, revealed the results of the organisation’s analysis of its compensation packages. This found that employees of both genders who have the same role at the same level received identical pay packages.Intel is also customising its employee benefits package with a view to meet employees’ needs at various stages of their career and life. In 2015, the organisation quadrupled its fertility benefits and tripled its adoption support.Intel also enhanced its parental leave programme in 2015 by offering ‘bonding leave’ of up to eight weeks following a child’s birth, adoption or foster placement for male and female employees.In addition, it extended its sabbatical leave programme to enable staff to take four weeks of additional paid leave for every four years’ of service to the business. Its original programme gave all full-time workers eight weeks of paid leave every seven years alongside their regular annual leave entitlement.In 2015, Intel also set itself the goal of becoming the first technology business to reach full representation of women and underrepresented monitories throughout the US. It ended the year with a quarter (25%) of its workforce being female; representing a 5.8% increase on 2014.Intel is also working on retaining its talent by placing greater emphasis on its environment as business. Initiatives will include its 2016 diversity and inclusion summit, which will bring together its leaders and employees from its global senior women’s community, diversity leadership councils, and employee resource groups, to focus on development and building community throughout the organisation.The organisation is also planning to host a selection of chief executive officer (CEO) diversity and inclusion summits, which will bring a select groups of mid- and senior-level women and under-represented minority employees together to share their perspectives regarding retention challenges and drive actions to address these.In addition, its Freelance Nation initiative is aimed at retaining high-performing workers who may want a more flexible working pattern.The report stated: “Intel has long been committed to paying our employees fairly and equitably at all levels of the organisation.“In 2015, we conducted a further compensation analysis examining gender pay parity for US employees across job types and levels, which showed a net result of 100% [gender] pay parity. We’re incredibly proud of this result.“In 2016, we’re intensifying our efforts with enhanced audits to comply with recent changes in the laws of California and other states regarding pay equity.”

Japan‘s Emperor Akihito (L) and Empress Michiko take a stroll in the garden of the Imperial Residence at the Imperial Palace in Tokyo, Japan, in this hand out picture taken on 6 December 2017 and released by the Imperial Household Agency of Japan. Emperor Akihito celebrated his 84th birthday on 23 December 2017. Photo: ReutersWhen Japanese Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko stood, heads bowed, at a seaside cliff on Saipan 60 years after a bloody World War Two battle, their silent prayers conveyed a message many felt resonated louder than words.On that June 2005 visit – one of many war-related trips during Akihito’s three-decade reign – the royal couple paid their respects at memorials not only for Japanese but also American and Korean war dead.“I think the emperor felt heartfelt pain and mourning for those who died, and that we must not forget the tragedy of the war and should convey that to the generations who have not experienced it,” Shingo Haketa, former grand steward of the Imperial Household Agency, which manages the monarch’s affairs, told Reuters in an exclusive interview.Haketa and a half-dozen other associates of the emperor recounted to Reuters how after the death of his father on 7 January 1989, Akihito carved out an active role as symbol of peace, democracy and reconciliation.Although he cannot directly influence government policy, Akihito has created a broader consciousness of Japan’s wartime past, experts say.That is a sharp departure from the legacy of his father, Hirohito – once revered as a “living god” in whose name Japan fought World War Two. Hirohito’s comments about the conflict were vague after Japan’s defeat, and he remained a divisive figure because of his role.Akihito, 84, will abdicate next year. On 15 August, he will for the last time as reigning emperor take part in an annual memorial ceremony honouring war dead held on the anniversary of Japan’s surrender.His retirement comes amid tensions with China and the Koreas, and his legacy appears threatened by a Japanese drift to the right mirrored in prime minister Shinzo Abe’s conservative agenda.Japanese political leaders have expressed regret, remorse and apology for their country’s wartime actions. But remarks by the emperor have a different weight, experts say.“Emperors are like popes – their gestures carry a symbolic message,” said Andrew Horvat, a visiting professor at Japan’s Josai International University.PUSHING THE ENVELOPEPoliticians have sometimes undercut official apologies, but Akihito’s message has remained consistent.“People see (Akihito and Michiko) as sincerely and respectfully trying to reach out to wartime victims in a deeply symbolic and very reconciliatory way,” said Jennifer Lind, a Dartmouth College professor who has written about apologies.Friends and scholars credit Akihito’s post-war education with laying the foundations for how he forged his role. Influences included Quaker tutor Elizabeth Vining and former Keio University head Shinzo Koizumi, who saw many of his students die in the conflict.“Currently, most Japanese people think that the emperor is gentle and kind,” Mototsugu Akashi, a former classmate, told Reuters. “But that is clearly a post-war phenomenon.”The makeover of the monarchy began after Japan’s surrender in 1945, when Akihito was 11.In theory, the emperor can say what he likes as long as his remarks don’t violate the post-war constitution, which defines the emperor as “the symbol of the State and the unity of the People”, devoid of governmental power and unable to interfere in politics.In practice, Akihito’s public remarks are carefully vetted to ensure they don’t violate those rules, with delicate discussions determining how forthright he can be.Akihito strained against those limits, say those who know him.“I know that for one or two speeches, he was angry with the Imperial Household Agency and foreign ministry about the words to be used,” said Michael Barrett, who knew Akihito while head of the British Council in Japan during the 1990s.“It was said that they (the imperial couple) were birds in a gilded cage, but he opened the door of that cage,” he added.CONSERVATIVE BACKLASHIn one early example, Seoul in May 1990 wanted the new emperor to apologise for Japan’s often brutal 1910-1945 colonisation of the Korean peninsula.Ruling party lawmakers objected, and prime minister Toshiki Kaifu offered to apologise instead to South Korean president Roh Tae Woo.Akihito, however, had his own ideas.“The current emperor wanted to make clear that it was Japan that caused the suffering of the Korean people,” Makoto Watanabe, a former imperial grand chamberlain, an aide to the emperor, told Reuters in an interview.Ultimately, Akihito had his way after private negotiations with government officials.“I think of the sufferings your people underwent during this unfortunate period, which was brought about by my country, and cannot but feel the deepest regret,” he said at a banquet for Roh.The early years of Akihito’s reign saw a flourishing of debate over Japan’s responsibility for World War Two and a series of government apologies.The statements, and efforts to teach children about Japan’s wartime actions, sparked a conservative backlash against a view of history seen as undermining national pride and identity.In 1992, Akihito became the first modern Japanese monarch to visit China. Domestic right-wing groups opposed the trip, while Chinese activists demanded an apology.While in China, the emperor said he felt “deep sorrow” for the suffering Japan inflicted on the Chinese people.The next year, he began visits to wartime sites, beginning in Okinawa, where resentment lingered against mainland Japan over the islanders’ wartime sacrifices.OVERSEAS BATTLEFIELDSix decades after the war’s end, he visited Saipan, a US territory, on his first trip to a foreign battleground.“He had felt strongly that he wanted to pray for all the souls who died in the war, not just domestically but overseas, not just Japanese but all the people of the world,” Haketa said.“Usually, the emperor’s overseas trips are in response to requests by the government, but this trip was based on his strong personal desire,” he added.Despite Akihito’s age and health problems – he has had heart surgery and been treated for prostate cancer – he has continued his travels.In 2015 he and Michiko went to Palau’s tiny Peleliu island, site of a fierce battle in 1944. In 2016 they visited the Philippines and this year returned to Okinawa.On the 70th anniversary of Japan’s defeat, Akihito expressed “deep remorse” over the war, a nuanced departure from his annual script.Many liberals and moderate conservatives saw it as a subtle rebuke to Abe, who a day earlier had expressed “utmost grief” for the suffering Japan inflicted but said future generations should not have to keep apologising.Months later, Akihito told a news conference to mark his 82nd birthday: “I believe having thorough knowledge about the last war and deepening our thoughts about the war is most important for the future of Japan.”Akihito’s heir, Oxford-educated Crown Prince Naruhito, 58, holds similar views on teaching about the tragedy of the war.“It is important to look back in a humble way on the past and pass on correctly the tragic experiences of war … from the generation that experienced the war to those who have grown up without first-hand knowledge of it,” Naruhito told a news conference ahead of his 55th birthday.But it is unclear how much impact Naruhito will have, partly because like most Japanese, he did not experience the war.“If he speaks of remorse, many people will ask, ‘Remorse for what?’” said Keio University imperial law professor Hidehiko Kasahara.
Kolkata: Despite repeated messages of caution by the state Fire and Emergency Services department, the lackadaisical attitude in maintaining a proper firefighting arrangement has come up as one of the many reasons behind the major fire at Bagree Market.Sovan Chatterjee, the state Fire and Emergency Services minister, said: “Officials had visited the Bagree Market, Mehta Building and such other buildings in Kolkata. The officials had cautioned them and also directed them to take necessary steps to avert such incidents of major fire.” Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeWhen asked if those measures were carried out, Chatterjee said: “Would we see such an unfortunate incident if the necessary steps were taken?”It is learned that the building was constructed in 1955 and it is under the jurisdiction of Bagree Estates Private Limited (BEPL). Initially, it was only a three-storeyed building to which three more floors were added later, sources said.On the other hand, the Bagree Market Welfare Association with around 450 members, came into existence a year ago that had its first meeting on Saturday. Members of the association were found raising fingers at the supervising authorities for poor maintenance of the firefighting arrangement. The fire-fighters are not ruling out the possibility that the electric pump was lying defunct for the past few days, as a result of which there was no water in the reservoir from where it could be supplied to the sprinklers. It has also been alleged that sprinklers and other firefighting arrangements were installed in the building a few months ago but there wasn’t any mock drill or mock test of the same conducted. Despite repeated attempts, Radha Bagree of Bagree Estates Private Limited could not be contacted for her reaction in this connection. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedAgain, during their visit, officials of the state Fire and Emergency Services department had pointed out that most spaces in the market were occupied by the traders to store goods that would lead to trouble in case a major fire breaks out. The officials had also directed them to take necessary measures in this connection.There are around 900 shops, offices and godowns in the building that is situated inside the narrow Canning Street with several overhead wires and cables causing impediment to normal functioning of the hydraulic ladders.According to a senior official of the state Fire and Emergency Services department, the situation would have turned worse if the incident had taken place during weekdays as the market remains absolutely packed with people from all across the state.The officer added that they should have taken steps for proper maintenance of the firefighting equipment at least to avoid their own loss and destruction of business.
July 11, 2018 5 min read Editor’s Note: In this series, The Way We Work, Entrepreneur Associate Editor Lydia Belanger examines how people foster productivity, focus, collaboration, creativity and culture in the workplace.Scott Absher is among those who believe that “the gig economy has given workers more opportunities, more flexibility and more decision-making,” as he puts it. But he also believes that there are a lot of holes to fill in making sure that this type of work is sustainable.He co-founded his three-year-old company, ShiftPixy, to help workers patchwork various part-time gigs into a full-time income with the benefits and security of a 9-to-5 job, from workers’ compensation to unemployment, medical, dental and vision insurance and 401(k) plans. For companies, ShiftPixy is kind of like a temp staffing agency that helps to fill open roles quickly, harnessing the power of AI to assess local on-demand labor pools.The company, which went public just over a year ago, has grown about 20 percent to 25 percent per quarter since, according to the company and analysts. About 70 percent of ShiftPixy’s employees work in the restaurant industry, 30 percent work in the service trades and the remaining 10 percent are in what Absher dubs “emerging independent delivery services,” such as independent contractors that handle Amazon deliveries.Related: Amazon Will Let Entrepreneurs Start Their Own Delivery Business and Earn Up to $300,000 a YearAbsher foresees ShiftPixy as a potential solution to the worker classification disputes that plague companies such as Uber, which hire independent contractors and brush off worker protection responsibilities.“They’d be Uber agents,” he says, “but they’d be our employees.” That’s how ShiftPixy operates for the restaurant workers, janitors and other workers it employs. They work at a given restaurant, for example, but they file a W2 tax form with ShiftPixy. However, ShiftPixy is not at all in talks to forge this type of relationship with Uber and its ilk, due to what Absher describes as a “difference of business philosophy.”Absher, who has spent his career helping companies comply with labor laws, shared his perspective with Entrepreneur about what gig-economy platforms and their workers have to gain from outsourced hiring, benefits and more.This conversation has been edited for length and clarity.1. What was the impetus for ShiftPixy?The preferences for labor, especially part-time labor, have changed radically. The preference in the way people connect to part-time work has also changed. Now it’s digital. Now it’s more gig-oriented. What hasn’t changed with that is brick-and-mortar companies’ responsibility for what I call “the HR stack.”Gig platforms have taken this “we’re not an employer” stance, despite the fact that they’re feeding and metering out the work. But just because you’re virtual and you exist behind the digital curtain does not abdicate your employer duties and responsibilities. ShiftPixy is able to leverage that technology, cater to that pivot in preference, but also deliver HR stack compliance.2. What is most lacking in today’s gig worker ecosystem?To us, one of the most prominent is workers’ compensation coverage. Let’s say you’re an Uber driver and you’re helping somebody get their suitcase into your trunk. What happens if you tweak your back? In normal work, if you tweak your back, that’s a workers’ compensation coverage issue. If you’re an Uber or GrubHub or any of these gig platform operators and that happens, you’re running solo.3. Do you foresee gig platforms like Uber being forced to classify its workers as employees in the near future?I think it’s going to have to happen. You can’t scoff at the law in perpetuity. Companies have limited resources to fight back. Governments don’t. Here are the rules around workers’ compensation: If you have one employee, you need to have it, in all 50 states. If there’s an injury and you do not have it, you have functionally committed insurance fraud.Number two, if you’re a state, and there’s this movement toward independent contractors, it also means there’s a move away from employer-side payroll taxes going into the system. So how long will cash-starved states like New York, Illinois and California endure the absence of employer-side payroll taxes?Related: Both Workplaces and Gig Economy Companies Are Killing People, This Stanford Professor Warns4. Why do you think gig platform companies are so reluctant to classify workers as employees?It’s a twofold aversion for them: Number one is just pure economics. For every dollar you earn, your employer has another 30 cents on top of that, roughly — in payroll taxes, workers compensation and a few other things.The gig operators, if they earn a dollar, they get a dollar. They don’t want to add that to that.Aversion number two is, they would have to staff up to administer and maintain those things. So it would mean some sort of HR and processing infrastructure that they may or may not be willing to invest in.5. What other gaps need to be filled to make work more secure and stable for free agents?We break out each operator’s shift work, and then we use schedule inefficiencies or dropouts to curate and create opportunities that we present to other people locally available in the system. We use AI to look at who vacated the shift and what their background was, to compare them to people who are locally available and to provide some options.

Malaysia Airlines wins big at Business Traveller Cellars in the Sky AwardsMalaysia Airlines’ revamped business and first class wine and champagne list has proven a winner, collecting an impressive five gongs, including Best First Class Cellar, in the prestigious Business Traveller Cellars in the Sky 2016 Awards presented at Trinity House Tower Hill in London yesterday by Charles Metcalf, co-chairman of the International Wine Challenge.Competing against 33 airlines, Malaysia Airlines also scored:Gold for Best First Class White Wine (Chateau La Louvière Blanc 2013 Pessac-Léognan, France)Bronze for First Class Red (Schubert Wairarapa Syrah 2013, Martinborough, New Zealand)Bronze for First Class Sparkling Wine (Champagne Joseph Perrier Cuvée Josephine 2004, France)And a special mention for Business Class White (Wairau River Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2015, Wairau River, Marlborough, New Zealand)The sought-after awards recognise the best wine served by airlines worldwide in business and first class and were judged by four wine aficionados from the International Wine Challenge who independently blind-tasted and scored each entry.Malaysia Airlines Regional Manager for Australia, New Zealand and South West Pacific, Bennet Stephens, said, “At a time where many airlines are reducing the level of food and beverages on-board flights, Malaysia Airlines deliberately chose to invest in quality products for our customers, so we are thrilled to have this recognised.”In October Malaysia Airlines unveiled its new range of first and business class wine and champagne which was especially selected for serving at 40,000ft since taste buds are reduced in the pressurised cabin, meaning wine doesn’t breathe in quite the same way as it would on the ground. Malaysia Airlines’ First Class Cellar includes:(Champagne) Champagne Joseph Perrier Cuvee Josephine 2004: A fine fruity yet vinous element, lively yet perfectly balanced. Flavours of spice, dried fruits and ripe fresh fruits over caramel abound tied together by the firm mineral back-bone.(Red) Chateau Frombrauge 2012, AOC St-Emilion Grand Cru Classes, Bordeaux: A concentrated and layered texture is filled with scents of dark currants and black cherries. Finishing with ripe tannin and roundness, the wine is approachable and with grilled steak is a classic combo.(Red) Schubert Wairarapa Syrah 2013, Martinborough: Stylistically French and lively on the palate, red cherries and black currants, pure spice – cassia and cinnamon bark with seductive aromatics that extend to elegance with subtle layers of minerality, with a central core of savoury earthy notes that offer balance and structure.(Red) Domaine Chandon de Briailles Pernand Vergelesse 1er cru “les Vergelesses” 2011, Burgundy: A wine that is rich, full and not very tannic.

By Stelios OrphanidesThe Central Bank of Cyprus said that following the upgrade of Cyprus’ sovereign credit rating to BBB- by Standard and Poor’s, Cypriot government securities have become again admissible for financial transactions in the Eurosystem.“They are at the same time, again eligible in the context of the public sector purchasing programme (PSPP) of the Eurosystem,” i.e. the European Central Bank (ECB) and the national banks of euro area member states, the central bank said in a statement on its website on Monday.“The country’s return to investment grade rating will strengthen confidence in the Cypriot economy and, in particular, the domestic banking sector,” it said. “At the same time, the use of Cypriot government securities in the Eurosystem’s credit operations and their inclusion in the PSPP is expected to help contain the Republic of Cyprus’ borrowing cost and expand the banking system’s capacity to tap liquidity at low rates via the Eurosystem’s credit operations”.The PSPP is part of the ECB’s expand asset purchasing programme, also known as quantitative easing, which came into life in early 2015 aiming at shielding the euro area’s anaemic growth from deflation. The ECB has said it would terminate net asset purchases by the end of 2018.Cyprus participated for a brief period in the ECB’s asset purchase programme before it completed its adjustment programme in early 2016. The ECB’s cumulative purchases of Cypriot government securities are €214m and accounts for 0.1 per cent of the total public sector securities bought by the ECB over the past 3.5 years.You May LikeMilitary BudRetire In Style For Less In These 20+ CountriesMilitary BudUndoSmall Business Loans | Search AdsSmall Business Loan Programs You Might Not Believe ExistSmall Business Loans | Search AdsUndoHistory Daily60 Remarkable Photos That Shine A New Light On HistoryHistory DailyUndo Two of serial killer’s victims buried in PhilippinesUndoHeroes’ welcome for Israeli teens after woman detained for false rape claim (Update 2)UndoMorphou bishop now claims gay men have a ‘nasty smell’Undoby Taboolaby Taboola
The Animal Party on Sunday called for authorities to re-examine the “irrational and illegal use of guns by irresponsible and dangerous citizens” after two dogs were shot by a man in Kouklia village on Saturday after they killed three of his rabbits.A 62-year-old was arrested for shooting dead a neighbour’s dog and injuring another after he said the dogs killed three of his rabbits. The Animal Party said the second dog subsequently died.around 5.30pm on Saturday, a 53-year-old resident of the village found one of his dogs, a female, injured near his home and reported it to police. Officers from the local police station went to the scene and found the second dog dead in a neighbour’s yard, around 150 metres away from the owner’s home.The 62-year-old owner of the house where the dead dog, a male, was found, allegedly claimed that the two dogs entered his yard and killed his rabbits. He said he had tried to get them to leave by throwing water on them but they became aggressive and fearing they would attack him, shot them with his hunting gun.The first dead dog and three dead rabbits were taken by the veterinary services. A necropsy on the dead animal found it had been killed by shotgun pellets.The three rabbits were found to have dog bites.The Animal Party condemned the incident and said the authorities must address the consequences of allowing people to have guns in their homes to “shoot as they please”.“The complaints that have lately come to the party about innocent animals being shot are rising,” it said in a statement.“Some people even use them in densely populated areas to kill cats, dogs, or other creatures they are unnecessarily annoyed with and want to kill.”The party said that on a number of occasions it had called on the justice minister and chief of police to be proactive on the use of firearms and to keep tighter controls on those who own them “rather than always running after tragic events to criminalise and punish”.“Again we condemn such atrocities and unreasonable behaviours against animals. We call upon animal owners to assume their responsibilities and comply with the law on the protection and care of their animals. Animals are simply victims of human irresponsibility and they must be treated as such, and not as perpetrators.” You May LikePlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoIcePopMan Notices A Strange Hole In This Lake, So He Gets A Drone, Flies It Inside And Captures ThisIcePopUndoGundry MD Total Restore SupplementU.S. Cardiologist: It’s Like a Pressure Wash for Your InsidesGundry MD Total Restore SupplementUndo Remand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)UndoThree arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboola
