The provincial government is taking new steps to deal with the economic and social effects of Nova Scotia’s aging population. Education Minister Jamie Muir announced today, June 21, a $150,000 Skills Nova Scotia study into how changing demographics will affect the labour market, jobs, education and the provincial economy. “The makeup of Nova Scotia’s work force, and society as a whole, will change considerably in the years ahead and we need to be prepared,” said Mr. Muir. “We’ll continue to work with our private- and public-sector partners, through Skills Nova Scotia, to evaluate opportunities and prepare workers to fill positions in areas that are most in need.” By 2021, 39 per cent of Nova Scotia’s population will be older than 54 years of age, and by 2029, only 60 per cent of Nova Scotians will be of working age, compared to 70 per cent in 2004. “As more Nova Scotians move toward retirement, we need to focus on improving productivity, supporting new growth sectors and responding to an evolving social and economic environment,” said the minister. The study was announced during a NovaKnowledge luncheon debate featuring internationally-known author and demographic expert David Foot. The announcement accompanied the release of the province’s Skills Nova Scotia annual progress report and action plan. “Nova Scotia is, and will continue to be, at the forefront when it comes to addressing the challenges related to shifting demographics because Atlantic Canada is the first region in Canada to experience these changes,” said David Foot. “Now is the time to prepare for upcoming changes, and the province’s Skills Nova Scotia agenda is a proactive step in the right direction.” Government has introduced, and is currently working on, a number of policy initiatives to address changing demographics, including: “As an employer and a member of the business community, we’re interested in the potential impact of demographic changes here in Nova Scotia,” said Bob Shaw, vice chair, the Shaw Group Limited. “We look forward to working with the provincial government to prepare for future challenges and opportunities, and to train Nova Scotians to meet the demands of Nova Scotia’s evolving economy.” The Skills Nova Scotia Annual Progress Report 2004-05 and Skills Nova Scotia Action Plan 2005-06 report on government programs, services and strategic initiatives that focus on educating, training and building Nova Scotia’s work force. Launched in 2002, Skills Nova Scotia is a partnership of provincial departments that works with business, labour, education and training institutions and community organizations to build Nova Scotia’s workforce and contribute to a thriving economy. The objectives and goals in the Skills Nova Scotia framework will be updated in the fall following a consultation with all partners. More information about Skills Nova Scotia and copies of the annual report and action plan are available on the website at http://skillsnovascotia.ednet.ns.ca . Details about the research contract and request for proposals will be available on the website in July.

Ballia (UP): A 35-year-old man was allegedly beaten up by some people on suspicion of being a child lifter in Uttar Pradesh’s Ballia district, police said on Tuesday. Pramod Rajbhar was having an argument with his sister-in-law when some people allegedly attacked him in Shankarpur Dehri village of Rasda area on Monday, Station House Officer Saurabh Rai said. Rai said police reached the spot and managed to save Rajbhar from the violent crowd. No FIR has been lodged in the matter as Rajbhar did not file a complaint, he said. Attacks over rumours of child lifting have increased over the past week in the state. On Thursday, Director General of Police O P Singh had said that 82 people have been arrested for spreading rumours about child theft.
15 April 2008Three United Nations staff members are among only a handful of survivors from today’s plane crash in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) that has killed dozens of people, the UN peacekeeping mission to the country reports. The mission, known as MONUC, said a Hewa Bora Airlines plane crashed soon after take-off at about 2:45 p.m. from the airport at Goma, close to the border with Rwanda. The Kinshasa-bound flight was carrying an estimated 80 passengers and six crew members.Radio Okapi reported the plane experienced technical difficulties during the take-off and briefly reached an altitude of 100 metres before it crashed into homes in the nearby densely populated Birere suburb of Goma and burst into flames. Nearly all on board are reported to have died.MONUC peacekeepers, fire brigades, ambulance crews, medical staff and first-aid providers were dispatched immediately to the crash site to help local authorities give treatment to the injured and evacuate victims to a UN hospital.The mission said the few survivors include two international staff with the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), one of whom is in critical condition; one national staff member with the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA); and the spouse of an OCHA national staff member. The pilot, his co-pilot and a flight attendant are also believed to have survived.The DRC has long had an extremely poor aviation safety record, and just last Friday the European Union added Hewa Bora Airlines to its blacklist of airlines banned from flying into EU air space.
NEW YORK, N.Y. – Oil stalled Monday, after last week’s four per cent gain, as traders await the latest readings on oil supplies and updated forecasts for demand.U.S. benchmark oil for July delivery fell 26 cents to close at US$95.77 per barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Oil rose $4.06, or 4.4 per cent, last week and closed at $96.03 a barrel on Friday.Traders are waiting for updated forecasts on global oil demand. OPEC and the U.S. Energy Department issue their monthly reports Tuesday, while the International Energy Agency, an umbrella group for the world’s oil consuming nations, gives its update Wednesday.The U.S. Energy Department also comes out with its weekly report on oil and fuel supplies, as well as demand for gasoline in the U.S. Last week’s report of a bigger than expected drop in oil supplies helped boost oil prices.Brent crude, a benchmark for many international oil varieties, fell 61 cents to $103.95 a barrel on the ICE Futures exchange in London.In other energy futures trading on the Nymex:— Wholesale gasoline slipped two cents to $2.85 a gallon.— Heating oil fell less than one cent to $2.88 per gallon.— Natural gas dropped three cents to $3.80 per 1,000 cubic feet.___(TSX:ECA, TSX:IMO, TSX:SU, TSX:HSE, NYSE:BP, NYSE:COP, NYSE:XOM, NYSE:CVX, TSX:CNQ, TSX:TLM, TSX:COS.UN, TSX:CVE) AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by The Associated Press Posted Jun 10, 2013 3:34 pm MDT Oil down after last week’s big gains; awaits demand outlook, US supply data
The report, released Friday from the International Organization for Migration (IOM), notes the highest number of fatalities, at 5,096, was recorded in 2016, when the short and relatively less dangerous route from Turkey to Greece was shut, following the European Union-Turkey deal. “Shutting the shorter and less dangerous routes can open longer and more dangerous routes, thus increasing the likelihood of dying at sea,” said Professor Philippe Fargues of the European University Institute, who authored the report, Four Decades of Cross-Mediterranean Undocumented Migration to Europe.The report reviews available evidence on trans-Mediterranean irregular migration to Europe along various routes going back to the 1970s, particularly on the magnitude of the flows, the evolution of sea routes to Southern Europe, the characteristics of migrants, the extent to which one can separate between economic and forced movements, and mortality during the sea journey. More than 2.5 million migrants have crossed the Mediterranean in an unauthorized fashion since the 1970s. Irregular sea journeys started rising in those years in response to the introduction, by Western States grappling with rising levels of unemployment during the 1973 oil crisis, of visa requirements for people who until then had been exempted – most of them temporary labour migrants from North Africa and Turkey.These policies encouraged those who were already in Europe to stay, increased irregular migration of family members to join their relatives in Europe and gave way to the smuggling business, the report states. The report also highlights differences between the modern pattern of migration from Africa to Italy, mostly via Libya, and that from the Middle East to Greece via Turkey. Arrivals to Italy from North Africa largely originate across sub-Saharan Africa in response to deep migratory pressures – population growth coupled with limited livelihood opportunities, high unemployment and poor governance and political and economic instability.Arrivals to Greece from Turkey since 2009 have been primarily of nationals from origin States affected by conflict and political instability, such as Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria.Noting the limitations of available data on irregular migration, the report says the numbers of deaths at sea may grossly underestimate the real number of people who die or go missing while crossing the Mediterranean, as they are based on numbers of bodies found and survivors’ testimonies.
She makes the comments in an interview with The Telegraph amid a debate between the Government and police chiefs over the link between cuts in funding and rising crime. This week the… Cressida Dick, the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, says the Home Office has “stepped back a lot” and needs to show “greater leadership”. Britain’s most senior police officer says the Government is leaving police “hamstrung” in the fight against violent crime. Ms Dick says the failure to introduce laws which allow officers to use facial recognition technology to catch “bad guys” has left her officers “hamstrung”. She adds that the battle against violent crime would be easier with funding for more officers.

Part of the “Girls on Ice” team starts their climb up Gulkana Glacier in Alaska. The program is a science and wilderness course, taught by female scientists and mountaineers for high school girls. (Photo by Ravenna Koenig/Alaska’s Energy Desk)It’s not news that science has a gender problem. For years, there’s been a persistent gap, with significantly more men going into science and engineering careers than women.Listen nowOne program called “Girls on Ice” connects high school girls with both science and mountaineering — another space that’s historically been dominated by men — by taking them out for a week to explore a glacier with an all-female team of scientists and mountaineers.One of the “Girls on Ice” trips takes place in Alaska, on Gulkana Glacier in the eastern Alaska Range.Mia Tucholke is a mountain guide and one of the leaders of the Gulkana trip. And on the day of the girls’ hike to base camp, she stands at the start of the Gulkana Glacier trail, surveying the group of 16- and 17-year-old girls as they struggle to pull on mountaineering boots and gaiters.As they do, Tucholke reminds them that in a few hours they’ll be taking all the gear off to cross what she jokingly calls a “lovely warm river.” The girls groan, and one of them wonders how they’ll dry their feet without towels.“We’re going to air dry them!” Tucholke said cheerfully to the long faces around her.Some of the girls are already pretty familiar with the outdoors, but others have never hiked up a glacier, spent a night camping in the wilderness or crossed a freezing river with a pack on their back.Now, they’re about to spend a week on Gulkana Glacier with Tucholke.“I like to suffer a little bit,” Tucholke said. “And I like to show that suffering can be ok.”Tucholke and a group of scientists will spend the week teaching the girls wilderness skills, glacier science 101, how to do field research and all the different ways you can make observations about the natural world — whether that’s as a mountaineer, a scientist or an artist.Aurora Roth, one of the instructors, is a glaciologist from Fairbanks.“Something we’re going to continue talking about for the rest of the week is: what is the line between art and science?” Roth said. “When is that blurred? Should they be these separate things? Are they the same?”“I absolutely love ice,” Roth added. “I’m an ice nerd.”Some of the girls participating in this program already know they want to go into science: everything from zoology to astrophysics to nursing.Part of the “Girls on Ice” team starts their climb up Gulkana Glacier in Alaska. The program is a science and wilderness course, taught by female scientists and mountaineers for high school girls. (Photo by Ravenna Koenig/Alaska’s Energy Desk)Lauren Smith is a high school senior from Portland, Oregon. She’s not sure exactly what she wants to do with science, but she does have one idea.“My absolute dream would be to write about science in a way where it would be accessible for everyone,” Smith said.Even though there are more women in science than there used to be, instructor Emilie Sinkler says that the relatively low number of women in science and mountaineering makes it harder for some girls to see themselves getting involved.“There aren’t as many role models to look up to these days just because of the history of those fields being mostly male-dominated,” Sinkler said.Under 30% of the science and engineering workforce is female. And while it’s hard to quantify how many women spend time mountaineering versus men, as of 2016 only 8% of guides in the American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA) were women. AMGA says that number is rising, but they don’t have more recent figures available.So part of the goal of “Girls on Ice” is to just give girls exposure to women who scale mountains and do science and show that it’s an option.“We want to give them extra confidence and experience in the outdoors and in science to see if those are the directions they might want to go, potentially,” Sinkler said.Beyond that, instructors hope that spending a week braving the Alaskan wilderness with an all-female group will inspire the girls to take on whatever challenges they encounter in their lives.“I think it’s just so empowering, just that as women, alone, we can do this,” Jessica Mejia, a glaciologist and one of the organizers of the trip, said. “We can do great science, we could be on a glacier by ourselves, we could do anything.”Anything. Even, as so many of the girls were worried about, side-step with a heavy pack on your back through a tumbling glacial river so cold it gives you brain freeze.
The Union Budget 2014-15 presented by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in the Parliament on Thursday seemed to have disappointed on the fronts of tax exemption, while it has brought cheer to domestic industries because of cut on custom duties. It has put a large focus on the youth of the nation, with the Finance Minister announcing several skills and development programmes as well as more educational institutions. The Budget also gave substantial attention to pressing problems of women’s safety in the country as well as the issue of climate change, suggesting measures in those directions.Here are some of the main highlights of the Union Budget 2014-15:Marginal Tax Relief – Jaitley announced a rise in tax exemption limit by ₹50,000, taking the tax exemption cap from ₹2 lakh to ₹2.5 lakh, much below the expectations of the middle class, which at least hoped for an exemption up to ₹3 lakh. Jaitley raised tax exemption limit for investment under Section 80C by the same amount to take it to ₹1.5 lakh. Similarly, tax exemption on home loans was raised from ₹1 lakh to ₹1.5 lakh. Rate of surcharge and education cess remain the same. Urban Infrastructure and Development – The Modi government’s thrust on development and infrastructure was highlighted in the Budget, and Jaitley announced more than ₹7,000 crore to develop 100 Smart Cities, a plan that Modi had underlined in his election manifesto. Apart from these 100 smart cities, the government has also announced ‘Industrial Smart Cities’ in seven states.Jaitley also announced an additional ₹50,000 crore for infrastructure development in urban areas, including transport and sanitation.Opening Defence, Insurance to Investment – The government opened the Defence Sector to foreign direct investment (FDI) by raising the FDI cap in defence to 49 percent, with an objective of taking the country from being the largest importer of arms to being the largest manufacturers. This move is likely to make several foreign governments happy, as million-dollar arms deals are in the pipeline.Apart from defence, the government has also allowed FDI up to 49 percent in the Insurance sector.Boost for Businesses – Jaitley announced ₹10,000 crore fund for start-up firms, and promised to set up an investor-friendly system for e-businesses. He also brought cheer to domestic industries, particularly those manufacturing electronics, by ensuring their products are on par with imported goods.Enabling Youth: A major focus of the new government in the Budget is on the country’s youth; a force that Modi has time and again said needs to be galvanized. The government announced a ‘Skills India Programme’ to develop skills among youth and make them viable for employment opportunities, and also set aside ₹100 crore for its ‘Young Leaders Programme.’ It also announced five new IITs and IIMs each.Women’s Safety – For a nation riddled with unabated crimes against women, the government has taken serious steps in improving the safety of women. It has allotted ₹50 crore for women safety on public transport and has allotted ₹150 crore for the Home Ministry to ensure women’s safety in larger cities. In order to promote education among girls, it has allotted ₹100 crore for its new scheme – ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao Yojana.’Social Inclusion – The government has reached out to minorities, the differently-abled and the underprivileged through its Budget. Jaitley announced ₹100 crore for the modernization of madrassas, and announced facilities such as aids, appliances, and a dedicated sports center for the differently-abled. Jaitley said the government would bring out currency notes with Braille inscriptions for the visually-challenged. He also promised ₹200 crore to support entrepreneurs from the Scheduled Classes.Green Budget – The government seems to have taken up the responsibility of addressing environmental issues of the time in its budget, especially the imminent issue of climate change. Stating the present climate condition as a major concern for the government, Jaitley announced ₹100 crore for the National Adaptation Fund. The government also announced ‘Ultra modern’ solar power projects for ₹500 crore, and ₹400 crore scheme for solar-powered agriculture. It has also kept aside ₹100 crore for promoting renewable energy across the country.Modernization of Defence Sector – Jaitley, who also serves as the Defence Minister, said that modernisation of the Armed Forces was critical, and announced an increase in the capital outlay for defence by ₹5,000 crore. He has also allotted ₹100 crore to support technological development for the Armed Forces. “In order to strengthen border security infrastructure, ₹2,250 crore has been set aside,” Jaitley said during his speech.Overall, the government has allotted ₹2.29 lakh crore to the defence sector. Finally, he also announced the long pending ‘One Rank, One Pension’ policy.Health and Cleanliness – Cleanliness seems to be an important prerogative of the Modi government, and it has promised to provide sanitation to every house by 2019 under its ‘Swach Bharat Abhiyan’ scheme. Jaitley also announced Free Drugs and Diagnostic Services to boost the health services in the country, and announced four more AIIMS institutions and 12 more Government Medical Colleges in the country. Regional Focus – The Budget gave special attention to several states and regions in the country. Jaitley announced ₹1,000 crore to set up a good rail connectivity with the North eastern states and the rest of the country, announcing ₹100 crore more for promoting commercial organic farming in the region. To tackle the current problems of power and water supply in the capital state of Delhi, the government has set aside ₹200 crore for power reforms and ₹500 crore for water reforms in Delhi. The government also allocated ₹500 crore for displaced Kashmiri migrants.
Two minors including a girl were drowned in Padma river in Radhakanto village of Pabna sadar upazila on Friday.The deceased are Jim, 9, son of a certain Amirul Hossain and Akhi, 8, daughter of one Alam Sardar of the village.Jim and Akhi drowned while they were playing on the river bank at noon, said Goutam Kumar Biswas, additional superintendent of police in Pabna.Soon after the incident, locals began search operation and the body of Jim was recovered in the evening but Akhi could not be found till 10:00pm due to high tide in the river, the officer added.Taraq Eko, station officer of fire service and civil defence in the district, said they were informed about the incident around 8:30 pm.They could not initiate the rescue operation due to the shortage of divers in the station, he said adding that they would begin the operation on Saturday morning.
© 2018 Phys.org A team of astronomers from Germany and Hungary has detected a new group of co-moving young stars. The newly found group is located in the Upper Centaurus Lupus (UCL) section of the Scorpius–Centaurus Association. The finding is reported in a paper published December 29 on the arXiv pre-print repository. The Scorpius–Centaurus Association (Sco-Cen) is an association of massive young stars of spectral type O and B. Located at a mean distance of 400 light years away from the Earth, it is the nearest region of recent massive star formation. One of its subgroups is the UCL, which is almost entirely covered by star-forming regions, except for a small area in the south-eastern corner of this subgroup. Now, a group of researchers led by Siegfried Röser of the Heidelberg University in Germany, has found a compact, young moving group of stars in this particular area of UCL.The newly detected group, named V1062 Sco Moving Group (V1062 Sco MG for short), was found by analyzing the data available in the Gaia-TGAS proper motion catalog in late 2016. Next, the researchers conducted follow-up observations of V1062 Sco MG using the FEROS instrument at the MPG/ESO 2.2 m Telescope in La Silla, Chile, in order to confirm the discovery and with the aim of determining fundamental parameters of this group.”We detected a hitherto unknown moving group or cluster in the Upper Centaurus Lupus section of the Sco-Cen OB-association,” the scientists wrote in the paper.According to the study, V1062 Sco MG is a co-moving group of 63 young stars at the edge of the UCL section, some 570 light years away from the Earth. “Altogether, we found 12 members with confirmed radial velocities and parallaxes, 31 with parallaxes or radial velocities, and 20 candidates from the convergent point method,” the paper reads.However, although the stars of this group are generally young, they are not coeval, as their ages range from four to 25 million years. At the moment, the researchers cannot explain this age spread.The authors of the paper emphasized that the newly found group is strongly co-moving and its one-dimensional velocity dispersion is less than 1.0 km/s. When it comes to the masses of the members of the group, they range from 0.7 to 2.6 solar masses.Although the researchers identified dozens of members of V1062 Sco MG, still many stars of this group remain undetected. The authors of the study believe that the Gaia Data Release 2 (from ESA’s Gaia satellite), expected to be published in April 2018, will reveal new and fainter members of the group. Further studies of V1062 Sco MG and other co-moving groups could provide important information about the process of star formation in associations.

We are searching for new open clusters or moving groups in the Solar neighbourhood. Methods. We used the Gaia-TGAS catalogue, cut it into narrow proper motion and parallax slices and searched for significant spatial over-densities of stars in each slice. We then examined stars forming over-densities in optical and near-infrared colour-magnitude diagrams to determine if they are compatible with isochrones of a cluster. Results. We detected a hitherto unknown moving group or cluster in the Upper Centaurus Lupus (UCL) section of the Sco-Cen OB-association at a distance of 175 pc from the Sun. It is a group of 63 co-moving stars with ages of less than 10 to about 25 Myr. For the brightest stars, which are present in the Gaia-TGAS catalogue the mean difference between kinematic and trigonometric distance moduli is about 0:01 mag with a standard deviation of 0.11 mag. Fainter cluster candidates are found in the HSOY catalog, where no trigonometric parallaxes are available. For a subset of our candidate stars, we obtained radial velocity measurements at the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope in La Silla. Altogether we found twelve members with confirmed radial velocities and parallaxes, 31 with parallaxes or radial velocities, and 20 candidates from the convergent point method. The isochrone masses of our 63 members range from 2.6 M_Sun to 0.7 M_Sun.
Tourism is on track to reach 1980s and 1990s growth rates, according to Tourism Australia chairman Geoff Dixon.Speaking at the Committee for the Economic Development of Australia this month, Mr Dixon explained although there is a need for greater flexibility in the market and infrastructure investment, Australian tourism is “getting its mojo back”, The Brisbane Times reported.He added further stimulation would get tourism closer to its “halcyon days” and coming to terms with the high value of the Australian dollar could help find new, innovative concepts to boost the sector.”Rewards for getting this right are enormous for our economic wellbeing in general, for enabling us and our neighbours to better understand and interact with each other, and for the future employment prospects of hundreds of thousands of young Australians,” he said.Touching on the Sydney Airport debate, Mr Dixon told attendees he found the situation to be “bizarre” and believes infrastructure spend should be focused on access.”The current airport is nowhere near operating to its full potential.”At the PATA Hub City Forum in Sydney this month, tourism leaders also agreed it was time for a change at Sydney Airport.Click here for more information.
