RENO, Nev. — The U.S. Forest Service has built its first corral for wild horses, a Northern California facility that could allow it to bypass federal restrictions and sell the animals for slaughter.The agency acknowledged in recent court filings that it built the pen for mustangs gathered in the fall on national forest land along the California-Nevada border because horses held at other federal facilities cannot be sold for slaughter.The Forest Service denies claims by horse protection advocates that it has made up its mind to sell the more than 250 horses for slaughter. But it also says it may have no choice because of the high cost of housing the animals and the continued ecological impacts it claims overpopulated herds are having on federal rangelands.The agency’s new pen is in the Modoc National Forest, about 170 miles (273 kilometres) northwest of Reno.Scott Sonner, The Associated Press
“I would say there are lots of possibilities for sectoral trade. We know the LNG possibility is real. We know that the Chinese Canadian community is very interested in deepening ties.”The distinction Carr makes is significant. An attempt to launch formal free trade talks last winter stalled because Chinese leaders flatly rejected the Trudeau government’s progressive trade agenda that would have included labour, gender and Indigenous rights.And then there’s that surprise clause in the new USMCA. It requires a member country to provide notice and information to the other two partners if it plans free trade talks with a “non-market” economy. It gives the other partners a say in the text of such a deal.The Chinese embassy in Ottawa blasted the inclusion of the new clause because it unfairly targets China’s potential trading partners, and unfairly brands it as a “ non-market” economy. Carr is so buoyant about the door-opening possibilities of shipping cleaner energy across the Pacific that he categorically discounts the effect of another surprise on the trade file this past week.He sees no obstacle in the controversial clause in the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement that allows any of the countries to withdraw from the deal on six-months notice if one of the partners enters into a free trade agreement with a non-market economy, China, again.“There’s nothing in the trade agreement with Mexico and the United States that stops Canada from that. The deal has no impact on Canadian sovereignty or the capacity of the Canadian government to do business around the world,” Carr said.Carr’s job is to find new trading markets for Canada beyond its largest trading partner, the United States. The word “diversification” was conspicuously added to his job title during a July cabinet shuffle and the minister is clearly thrilled with what he sees as the LNG arrow in his quiver.Given the rocky, insult-laden, 14-month road to a new North American trade deal, the need to fulfil the promise of diversification has never been greater for Canada. Carr is also eyeing India, South America, and other Asian countries, as well as pushing for the speedy ratification of the new Trans-Pacific Partnership.He is hoping to travel to China next month, though he stops short of calling for all-out free trade with the country that is the subject of so much Trump administration ire. OTTAWA, O.N. – Jim Carr’s view of enhancing Canadian trade in Asia _ and its biggest prize, China _ is rosier these days because he’s seeing the possibilities through a new lens: LNG Canada’s new $40-billion liquefied natural gas project in northern B.C.“The most interesting development in Canada’s relationship with China happened (Tuesday),” the new minister of international trade diversification said in an interview one day after the historic announcement to build the long-awaited LNG plant in Kitimat, B.C.“What we’ll be able to say to our potential customers is that this now is real and there will be timetables.” Trade experts and analysts support the careful approach that Carr advocates because it gives Canada room to talk to China without overtly angering the United States.“The Americans may still take notice but there’s nothing to stop Canada from continuing to have productive conversations with the Chinese in areas that we have common interests,” said Meredith Lilly, a trade expert at Carleton University.Lilly said the non-market economy clause is unusual and represents a new way for the Trump administration to force its allies to “pick sides” in its ongoing trade dispute with China that has seen billions of dollars of tariffs imposed on Chinese goods, and retaliation by Beijing.“You can view those as targeted at China, and the U.S. creating a template for future trade agreements with other countries beyond Mexico and Canada,” said Lilly.Derek Burney, who was a key player in the Brian Mulroney government that negotiated the original Canada-U.S. free trade deal, said he’s not convinced the clause has any teeth to prevent Canada from moving forward economically with China, which he urged the government to do “as assertively” as possible.“We have misfired in our approaches to China thus far. We have to redouble those efforts and get more serious, and not just with China, but with India as well,” he said.“China’s going to be the No. 1 economy in a number of years, not decades. We’ve got to take it more seriously.”Burney said business needs to do more to find opportunities to capitalize on the major trade deals that Canada has already completed with the European Union and South Korea, among others, as well as the new TPP that the Trudeau government hopes to ratify this fall.“I don’t see as much evidence yet of our companies taking advantage of the openings that those agreements are giving us,” said Burney. “The biggest handicap in Canada is complacency. We’ve become comfortable in the cocoon of dealing with the Americans for 75 percent of our trade.”Carr is anything but complacent.A full legislative effort is being made to ensure the rebooted TPP will be ratified this fall, giving Canada so-called first-mover advantage by being among the first six counties in the 11-country Pacific Rim pact to benefit. Meanwhile, Canada’s battalion of 1,000 trade commissioners and a newly created Invest in Canada agency are pushing hard on all fronts, said Carr.“All of it plays to the heart of our strategic investment, which is to safeguard the most important trading relationship for Canada, which we have done while expanding possibilities, which we are doing.”(THE CANADIAN PRESS)
Band is an important skill and outlet as the intrinsic reward is priceless. Learning to play an instrument and be a part of a band promotes confidence and skills to interact with a community that develops these students into dynamic people.The importance of this festival is for students to have the opportunity to cultivate and grow a students love of serious music making. As this is a non-competitive festival, its an environment of exposure to different performers and clinics.With many students to transport, house and feed for days, fundraising efforts are what help the school ensure their students can participate in such an event. To receive such a donation from Co-op is another step closer to getting the students to the event in April 2019.Students have been fundraising for this trip to September with bottle drives, selling first aid kits, and they are planning a bigger event in the new year which will be a dinner and or dessert theatre fundraiser.To help out with the cost of the students trip by donating please contact Bonnie Anderson our band parent coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Fundraising for an upcoming Band trip to Edmonton was recently injected with a $500 donation from FSJ Co-op.Fundraising plays a big part in financing opportunities for kids to get outside of the community to learn and grow. One such event for the SD60 Band program is the Edmonton Cantando Musical Festival.North Peace has a very vibrant and nurtured musical program that starts early in middle school and with the curriculum build and maintained by several teachers; this musical program continues with a student as they grow through their education and grades.
BURNABY, B.C. – A mid-air protest has begun in British Columbia at the western end of the Trans Mountain pipeline, which carries oilsands crude from Alberta to a port in Metro Vancouver.Stand Earth spokesman Sven Biggs says 71-year-old grandfather Terry Christenson has climbed a tree inside the Westridge Marine Terminal, which is the facility where oil would be loaded onto tankers in a planned expansion of the pipeline.This is the second protest for Christenson, who was arrested in March 2018 after climbing a tree in the same area to slow clearing for the pipeline construction. “Canada is already on the path to clean energy and we must continue to diversify our economy, not build more dirty pipelines. I’m here today to ensure Prime Minister Justin Trudeau hears this message loud and clear,” Christenson says. Christenson’s first protest lasted 16 hours before he was removed, but Biggs says the professional mountain climber has enough supplies to remain in his new perch for a week.Stand Earth says about 230 people were arrested last year for violating an injunction against protests at the marine terminal and other nearby infrastructure linked to the Trans Mountain pipeline.The federal government supports the tripling of the pipeline’s capacity but suspended work on the expansion last August when the Federal Court of Appeal found parts of a National Energy Board review were flawed and should be redone.Biggs says Christenson’s protest could be the start of many more.“It’s a message to Justin Trudeau and his cabinet who are right now considering whether or not to re-approve the pipeline. If they do that, I think they are going to see a lot more actions like this mornings’,” Biggs says.A statement sent by Christenson, through Stand Earth, says climate change will affect everyone and today’s protest is on behalf of his grandchildren, and grandchildren around the world.
Fez- The news has been shared by many Moroccans since it was first published by Moroccan news portal Hespress. Zouhair Benouahi, a Moroccan player who plays in Azerbaijan’s football league, said he was deprived of playing with the national team of football (soccer), because he once played against an Israeli team.The news might sound unbelievable, but this is what, Rachid Taoussi, the coach of Morocco’s national team allegedly told the player: “a player who plays in Israel can’t even dream of playing with the national team as long as I am the coach.” The player added that although Taoussi expressed his satisfaction of the player’s performance, he opposed his integration into the Moroccan team, on the grounds that he had played against an Israeli team during the first round of the Europa League. Faced with the impossibility of playing for Morocco, the player said he had no other choice than obtaining the Azerbaijani citizenship in order to play for its national team. © Morocco World News.

Senior midfielder Yianni Sarris looks for a teammate during a game against Akron on Sept. 24 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. OSU lost, 3-1.Credit: Ben JacksonAlex Ivanov seemingly can’t catch a break. Following a 10-save losing effort on Sunday, Ohio State’s redshirt-senior goalkeeper faced 12 shots on goal in Ohio State’s 3-1 loss to Akron on Wednesday night.The Zips (4-2-1) peppered the Buckeyes (2-2-3) with an offensive onslaught that handed OSU its first home defeat of the season. Coming off a 1-0 loss to then-No. 10 Penn State, the Buckeyes’ attempt to regain momentum was stifled by Akron’s potent attack.“Akron’s always really good at keeping possession in the final third,” OSU junior midfielder Zach Mason said. “They’re just a dynamic team and they’re always tough to play against.”Scoring opened 12 minutes into the match when Akron redshirt-freshman forward Sam Gainford poked a nine-yard shot past Ivanov.The game’s first goal put OSU in a hole, senior midfielder Yianni Sarris said.“We just need to learn that we can’t have a goal scored against us in order to wake up,” Sarris said. “We need to get at teams from the beginning and just go at them.”The Buckeyes found an equalizer just over four minutes later when sophomore forward Danny Jensen saved a throw-in headed for the byline and curled a tight-angle shot past Akron junior goalkeeper Jake Fenlason.Unfortunately for the Buckeyes, they fell back asleep after leveling the game.The Zips took their second lead of the game in the 35th minute when freshman forward Stuart Holthusen fed a pass to junior forward Sean Sepe, who beat Ivanov with a choppy shot to the far corner of the net.“Giving up that second goal kind of deflated us,” Mason said.Akron entered halftime with a 2-1 lead, outshooting the Buckeyes, 10-6, before the break.Aside from a couple chances, the next 45 minutes didn’t bring much for OSU in terms of offensive success.“I think we just ran out of juice after a while,” Mason said. “That can happen when you’re down.”The Buckeyes managed one shot on goal in the second half while the Zips posted four and stretched their lead to 3-1 in the 76th minute.OSU junior defender Liam Doyle had a chance to make it 3-2 from the penalty spot in the 83rd minute, but Fenlason made the save to preserve his team’s two-goal advantage.Akron generated the majority of its chances through the center of the field, something OSU coach John Bluem said he was not surprised to see.“(Akron) is very disciplined in their attacking play,” Bluem said. “It’s hard to stop them from playing.”Despite the result, Bluem said he was pleased with the turnout for a game played in memory of Connor Senn, a former Buckeye who passed away after collapsing during a game against Akron in 2001.“It’s good that the tradition of this game has carried on for so long now,” Bluem said. “The students were wonderful in their support of the game tonight.”The game was preceded by a flyover and moment of silence in Senn’s honor.OSU looks ahead to a tough stretch of its schedule next. The Buckeyes are set to play three ranked teams in their next five games including matchups against No. 9 Louisville, No. 16 Michigan State and No. 17 Indiana.The Buckeyes are scheduled to play Dayton in Dayton, Ohio, on Saturday. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m.
Ohio State head men’s volleyball coach Pete Hanson will be inducted into the USA Volleyball Hall of Fame in Columbus on May 22. Credit: Courtesy of OSU AthleticsAfter 35 years as the head coach of the Ohio State men’s volleyball team, Pete Hanson announced his retirement on Thursday. In his storied coaching career, Hanson has led three Ohio State teams to an NCAA Championship — in 2011, 2016 and 2017 — has been named the National Coach of the Year three times and has recorded 712 career wins, the third-most in NCAA history. “I will certainly miss Ohio State and the volleyball program, but I will never forget it,” Hanson said in a release.Hanson has also been inducted into three Hall-of-Fame classes: the American Volleyball Coaches Association in 2015, the Ohio State Athletics in 2017 and the USA Volleyball in 2019. “Being in the Hall of Fame once obviously is a feat in and of itself. To do it three times is something just surreal and something crazy,” senior setter Sanil Thomas said. “I think what you wouldn’t expect is the same — I would imagine, the same amount of passion he brought day one he brings that passion day — a lot; it’s a lot of days. That’s why he deserves this more than anyone.”In Hanson’s tenure as head coach, the Buckeyes won the Midwestern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association regular season title 18 times, over half of the total seasons he had coached. In his 34 years, he has been awarded as the MIVA Coach of the Year 13 times. However, much of the impact Hanson has made is reflected in the players he coached. Hanson has coached 13 MIVA Player of the Year award winners, 17 players who ended up playing professionally and 17 players who competed for their national team. “The legacy of Ohio State volleyball was and has been built by all of those fine young men that wore the Scarlet and Gray,” Hanson said in a release. “I am forever indebted to them, as they helped to ensure that Ohio State volleyball remained one of the most respected programs in the country.” Hanson also made an impact off the court and into the classroom. More than 200 of his players have earned Academic All-Big Ten honors, and, in the past 10 years, 65 percent of his players have earned Ohio State scholar-athlete recognition. “His impact far exceeds the men’s volleyball program, and even Ohio State Athletics, making a positive difference to collegiate volleyball across the country,” Ohio State deputy director of athletics and men’s volleyball administrator Janine Oman said. “The development of young men has always been paramount to Pete, equipping them to lead successful lives.”But on the court, especially inside St. John Arena, Hanson made his lasting mark. In his tenure, Ohio State has recorded six undefeated seasons at home and one 42-match winning streak, the longest in Ohio State history for a head-to-head sport. “Pete Hanson’s Buckeye career embodied our mantra of ‘The People. The Tradition. The Excellence,’” Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith said in a statement. “He’s found success on the court and molded young men off of it, preparing them for life after college. Pete leaves a lasting legacy at The Ohio State University.”
Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood insists Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has been picking fights with the wrong people in this season.Mourinho takes his team to Stamford Bridge to face former club Chelsea on Saturday with the Portuguese gaffer under huge pressure following a disappointing start to the Premier League season.Before the international break, the self-acclaimed ‘special one’ claimed he was the victim of a “manhunt” following United’s 3-2 win over Newcastle after reports came out he would be sacked regardless of the result at Old Trafford.However, it is the first recent criticism of the club’s board, and some of their players, as well as his constant battles with the press, that has most undermined Mourinho, according to Sherwood.“Sometimes you can create your own fires,” the former Tottenham boss told Sky Sports’ The Debate.Mourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.“You have enough problems putting them out, but if you are creating them yourself, and then putting them out…“And at times I think he picks fights with the wrong people. You cannot pick a fight at Manchester United, it is an institution that football club. It is bigger than any individual.”“So why should you pick a fight with them? It is not going to work and Jose knows it has not been good enough.”“He is a winner, a serial winner, he wins everywhere he goes. He needs great respect for that, but what has happened in the past is in the past. Jose is still a football manager now and he needs to start winning things.”“He needs to win the Premier League for a club that has Man Utd’s stature.”

As we had surmised, the new Mitsubishi ASX shown at the Geneva Motor Show closely previewed the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport that will go on sale in the US this September. Mitsubishi revealed the new Outlander Sport on Tuesday at its research and development center in Ann Arbor, Michigan.The redesign is quite thorough, as midcycle freshenings go, with the 2020 Outlander Sport wearing a new front end, a new rear, new 18-inch wheels and new interior materials. The design provides strong hints as to the look of all future Mitsubishis, said Nate Berg, director of product planning for Mitsubishi Motors North America. It was previewed by the Engelberg Tourer concept.Enlarge ImageThe Outlander Sport in its top GT trim level and Sunshine Orange paint. Jake Holmes/Roadshow “Design will be a key strategic thing moving forward for Mitsubishi Motors,” Berg said. “We will continue to focus on refining our design.”Up front, the design change begins with a new, flatter hood that no longer angles down toward the front of the car. The entire front fascia is new, with a wider version of Mitsubishi’s “Dynamic Shield” grille. The fog lights and turn signals are at the far edges of the car and separated from the headlights. It’s a much tougher look than the old model. LED headlights are now standard — last year they weren’t even available as an option.Enlarge ImageThe taillights and rear bumper are also new. Jake Holmes/Roadshow The car’s 18-inch wheels have been redesigned, too, as have the LED taillights. A new rear bumper design has extra plastic cladding and faux-vents, recalling the look of the Subaru Crosstrek. There’s even a new faux-plastic fender vent ahead of the front doors.An in-your-face design was key given that many Outlander Sport customers cited design as a key selling point for the crossover, Berg said. “Our customers have told us they love the design of our Outlander Sport,” he said. “You don’t see a lot of the competition being so bold and rugged.” Arguably, though, something like the Hyundai Kona is up there.Within the cabin, Berg said most changes were aimed at improving quality, such as better seat upholstery, “to give a better, more upscale appearance.” Other changes include a standard black headliner and redesigned climate-control knobs that are apparently easier to grip. A new 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system (last year’s model had 6- or 7-inch screens) features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but still has physical tuning and volume knobs.Enlarge ImageThe new 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Jake Holmes/Roadshow There are no changes mechanically, so the Outlander Sport’s standard engine remains a 2.0-liter inline-four rated for 148 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. GT models use a 2.4-liter engine with 168 hp and 167 lb-ft. A five-speed manual transmission was previously offered on base models, but has been discontinued for 2020. Available active-safety technology includes precollision warning and braking, blind-spot monitoring and automatic high-beam headlights, though adaptive cruise control is unavailable.Pricing for the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has yet to be confirmed, but Berg promised it won’t be too far off the current model’s figures. That likely means a base price around $22,000-$23,000, with the GT trim topping out around $27,000. The new crossover goes on sale this September.

Providing help to friends, acquaintances, and even strangers can reduce the effects of daily stress on our emotions and our mental health, says a study.“Our research shows that when we help others, we can also help ourselves,” explained study author Emily Ansell of the Yale University School of Medicine in the US. “Stressful days usually lead us to have a worse mood and poorer mental health, but our findings suggest that if we do small things for others, such as holding a door open for someone, we won’t feel as poorly on stressful days,” Ansell noted. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’In the study, people used their smartphones to report on their feelings and experiences in daily life. A total of 77 adults, ranging from 18 to 44 years old, participated in the 14-day study.The participants received an automated phone reminder every night that prompted them to complete their daily assessment. They were asked to report any stressful life events they experienced that day across several domains such as interpersonal, work/education, home, finance, health/accident, and the total number of events comprised the measure of daily stress. The results indicated that helping others boosted participants’ daily well-being. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixA greater number of helping behaviours was associated with higher levels of daily positive emotion and better overall mental health.“It was surprising how strong and uniform the effects were across daily experiences,” Ansell said. “For example, if a participant did engage in more prosocial behaviours on stressful days, there was essentially no impact of stress on positive emotion or daily mental health. And there was only a slight increase in negative emotion from stress if the participant engaged in more prosocial behaviours,” Ansell pointed out.The study was published in the journal Clinical Psychological Science.

Source = e-Travel Blackboard: M.H Travel agents will soon be able to operate their businesses from “anywhere” and at “anytime” following the launch of Amadeus Travena, the industry’s first fully web-based booking solution for travel professionals. The latest offering by Amadeus will begin deployment in the United States and Canada later this year, with other markets to gain access to the solution in early 2012, through twelve languages. “Amadeus Travena was built for travel professionals, by travel professionals,” Amadeus North America president and chief executive Scott Gutz said. “This new solution combines powerful features, customization capabilities, and online convenience with extensive travel content to help agents demonstrate their difference and win in tomorrow’s travel arena.” As well as giving agents access to fully-integrated Amadeus content, the new web-based solution allows for quick deployment of new content and functionality from the travel technology provider. Additionally, Amadeus Travena will let agents apply the solution “the way they want, when they want”, with users able to set preferences and rules to access the program. Amadeus Travena was unveiled to the North American market at THE TRADESHOW, the American Society of Travel Agents’ (ASTA) annual conference in Las Vegas. e-Travel Blackboard attended THE TRADESHOW, which wrapped up on Tuesday.
