Internationally renowned Canadian singer-songwriter Bryan Adams is calling on Ottawa to change copyright laws to bring them more in line with provisions in the United States.In particular, Adams told a House of Commons committee today that one section of the Copyright Act needs to be amended to give artists the ability to better control what they create.Adams pointed out to MPs the law prevents artists from recovering ownership of their creations until 25 years after they die.He noted that musicians in the U.S. have the ability to recover copyright control over their works 35 years after signing over the rights to record producers.The musician, known for such hits as “Summer of ’69,” said the change he is proposing likely would not affect how much he earns from his music.But he said younger artists could benefit.“I just think it’s fair” to make the change, Adams said.Bryan Adams joins the MPs to discuss pay for Canadian artists and musicians.

by Wayne Parry, The Associated Press Posted Mar 6, 2015 2:53 pm MDT Casino company appeals ruling favouring Trumps in Atlantic City naming rights lawsuit This Jan. 14, 2015 photo shows the name of the former Trump Plaza casino in Atlantic City, N.J. spelled out in dirt on the facade of the shuttered casino three months after work crews removed the letters from the building. On Friday, March 6, 2015, Trump Entertainment Resorts appealed a bankruptcy court order in favor of Donald and Ivanka Trump allowing them to move forward with their lawsuit in New Jersey state court seeking to force the company to strip the Trump name from the rest of trump Plaza and all of the Trump Taj Mahal. (AP Photo/Wayne Parry) ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – Donald Trump won’t rest until his name is off every last vestige of the Atlantic City casino empire he once owned.The owners of the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort on Friday appealed a court order in favour of Trump and his daughter, Ivanka, in a lawsuit seeking to strip their name from the casino.Trump Entertainment Resorts — which the real estate mogul and reality TV star no longer runs — filed the appeal in U.S. District Court in Delaware of a Feb. 20 ruling enabling the Trumps to move forward with their lawsuit in state court.The Trumps say Trump Entertainment allowed its two Atlantic City casinos to fall into disrepair. That, the Trumps say, damages their personal brand.The company has stripped the Trump name from most of Trump Plaza, which closed on Sept. 16, but is fighting to keep using it at the Taj Mahal, its lone remaining casino.In filing their lawsuit last August, the Trumps wrote, “The Trump name … has become synonymous with the highest levels of quality, luxury, prestige and success.”Donald Trump does not run or control Trump Entertainment Resorts, which was formed after the Trump casino empire emerged from the second of its three bankruptcies. But he retains a 10 per cent stake in it.He is particularly sensitive to any negative associations of his name with Atlantic City. He has repeatedly said he has had no involvement for at least six years with the casinos that bear his name.In response to the lawsuit, Trump Entertainment began stripping large neon letters spelling out “Trump” on the exterior of Trump Plaza in October. But the result might not be what Donald Trump had in mind: the word is still outlined in dirt or rust in many spots on the former casino facade.Billionaire investor Carl Icahn is acquiring Trump Entertainment by swapping its debt that he owns in return for ownership of the company. Icahn joined Trump Entertainment Resorts in the appeal on Friday.___Wayne Parry can be reached at http://twitter.com/WayneParryAC AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email
Then-senior wide receiver Devin Smith (9) catches a touchdown during a game against Illinois on Nov. 1 at Ohio Stadium. OSU won 55-14. Credit: Lantern file photoFormer Ohio State wide receiver Devin Smith has been selected by the New York Jets with the 37th pick in the second round of the 2015 NFL draft. This marks the fourth consecutive year a former Buckeye has been taken in the second round.Smith ended his OSU career with 2,503 receiving yards and 30 touchdown receptions. During his senior season in 2014, he had a team-leading 931 receiving yards and 12 touchdown catches. He led the nation among qualified receivers with an average of 28.2 yards per reception and was an All-Big Ten honorable mention in both 2013 and 2014.In 2011 as a true freshman, Smith saw considerable playing time, catching 14 passes for 294 yards. He also caught four touchdowns — including a 40-yard heave from then-freshman quarterback Braxton Miller as time winded down to pull off the upset of Wisconsin.As a sophomore, Smith started 10 games. He more than doubled his receiving yards from the previous season, racking up 618 yards on 30 catches and a team-leading 6 touchdown receptions. Much like as a freshman, one of his touchdowns came in highlight reel fashion. This time, it was a spectacular one-handed grab as he tumbled to the turf against Miami (Ohio).The following season, he continued on his upward trajectory. As a junior, he tallied then-career highs in receptions (44), receiving yards (660), and touchdowns (eight).He established himself as a legitimate NFL prospect during OSU’s three-game national title run, specifically against Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game and Alabama in the Sugar Bowl. Against the Badgers, Smith caught four passes for 137 yards and three scores. Then versus the Crimson Tide, he tallied 87 yards on two receptions, with a touchdown.The Jets were lead in receiving by Eric Decker during the 2014-15 season with 962 yards. They traded for receiver Brandon Marshall during the offseason.New York is scheduled to open the 2015-16 season Sept. 13 against the Cleveland Browns at 1 p.m.
Asked if Ms Bailey’s whereabouts were mentioned at any stage, he replied: “No, nothing.”I assumed she was home as both her cars were there.”Earlier that same day, a nurse he had seen, Lynn Hull, said Stewart appeared “distant” and “spaced out” during an appointment, jurors heard.He had delayed his appointment from the morning until the afternoon, citing car trouble, jurors were told.Stewart was said to have had to frequently visit the doctor to have his dressing changed following surgery on his intestines, which had made him “lethargic and tired”, according to his son.It was the following day that Jamie noticed Ms Bailey was not at home.He said: “Normally when you walk through the front door Boris the dog comes bounding up to meet you – I remember that not happening, which was a bit unusual.”Stewart told his son that Ms Bailey had left a note saying she had gone to her home in Broadstairs, Kent, and wanted to be left alone.He told the court he never saw the note and was informed by his father that it had been “thrown out with the rubbish”.”Throughout that week, he began to get visibly more stressed out. He was spending a lot more time with myself and my brother and wanting to be around us.”Several days later he told Jamie he had reported Ms Bailey missing.”I hadn’t been aware that there Helen hadn’t been in contact with anyone,” he told jurors.He added: “Throughout the week he became more and more stressed and over the weekend he was quite frantic and wanted to help the police find her.”He added that all that appeared to be missing was a raincoat, a pair of Wellington boots and a collar for her dog. The fiance of children’s author Helen Bailey played a game of bowls and had a Chinese takeaway on the day he is accused of drugging and killing the author, a court has heard.Ian Stewart, 56, of Royston, Hertfordshire, repeatedly pushed for a sale of her property to go ahead after he allegedly killed her, a jury at St Albans Crown Court was told.The 51-year-old writer’s body was found dumped alongside her beloved dog Boris in a cesspit deep below her £1.5 million property in Royston in July 2016.Stewart denies charges of murder, fraud, preventing a lawful burial and three counts of perverting the course of justice.

Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. It is alleged that the killing had “money as its driving motive”, with Stewart in line to be a “substantial” benefactor of the author’s £4 million fortune in the event of her death.The defendant’s son, Jamie Stewart, told the court that, on the day his father is alleged to have killed Ms Bailey, he had gone to watch him play bowls in Cambridge.He added that, although it was the final of a competition, his father had been unwell so he did not know if he would turn up.He said: “When I went into the bowls club he happened to be just there in front of me – I was a bit surprised to see him there, but I was happy.”After his father lost, the pair had a Chinese takeaway together. The court previously heard that in 2015 Stewart was given power of attorney alongside Ms Bailey’s brother John, allowing him to control her affairs should she become unfit to administer them.Mr Penn said of one later meeting: “I do remember on this occasion that he was very anxious and he was not at all pleased to hear the news that we were not able to proceed with the transaction; it didn’t go down well.”He was shrugging his shoulders, he was looking anxious, he was not pleased to hear that information, put it that way.”I explained to him obviously, with the question mark over where Helen was, there was a question mark over the power of attorney.”Stewart allegedly told the solicitor he was looking into getting his powers of attorney properly registered.The court heard that this was required for his powers over Ms Bailey’s affairs to become active – and only stood if she was alive. The side of a well beneath the garage at the home of Helen Bailey in Royston, HertfordshireCredit: Hertfordshire Constabulary When I went into the bowls club he happened to be just there in front of me – I was a bit surprised to see him there, but I was happyJamie Stewart On April 11, 2016 – when the murder was said to have taken place – the defendant had visited a solicitor with paperwork regarding the sale of a £185,000 property in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear.He claimed he was attending in place of Ms Bailey because she was was “unwell”, solicitor Timothy Penn told the court.In the weeks after her disappearance, Stewart was in contact with Mr Penn on several occasions and was “not at all pleased” by the lack of progress, the court heard.Mr Penn told the court of one phone call: “He said, ‘You probably know that Helen is missing and I’m wondering if you can carry on with this transaction in the meantime’.”I said, ‘effectively no’. He talked about a power of attorney and I said in these circumstances we would want to hear from Helen.”
WEEK SIX IS when we assess our progress. Take a moment to think back to your first session and do an honest assessment of how far you’ve come.Are you progressing as planned? Or have you missed a few days from the plan through illness or injury?You need to be healthy first and fit second and that means not sacrificing health for fitness.Don’t run when injured and don’t run when you’re not feeling well. If you are starting to feel any niggling pains or discomfort in your legs it might be worth investing in a sports massage as most running related injuries are easily cured.Don’t be tempted to run through the pain as this can make the problem worse. Don’t test your breaking point and sometimes stopping in time can make all the difference, forget about no pain no gain and instead adopt the train don’t strain mentality.Simple things become complicated when you expect too much and your goals need to be realistic and reflect your current state of fitness and overall condition. Don’t try to make up for what you may have missed by adding in extra sessions or rejoining the plan where you should be. When making a return or starting again it’s best to take two steps back before trying to go forward again as this will prevent you from doing too much too soon.Week SixMonday: Five-minute brisk walk.

Un nouveau design pour l’iPhone 5 ?Le futur smartphone star de la marque à la pomme pourrait, entre autres, adopter une coque en aluminium, selon le site taïwanais Economic Daily News. Le site Economic Daily News pense savoir que le design de l’iPhone 5 s’avérera assez différent de celui de l’iPhone 4. Le dos en verre de l’appareil actuel laisserait ainsi sa place à une coque en aluminium, proche de celle de l’iPod Touch. L’antenne, qui a posé énormément de problèmes lors du lancement de l’iPhone 4, prendrait place près du logo la marque. Techniquement, il serait doté d’un processeur A5 double-coeur, le même que sur la tablette tactile iPad 2. Autre rumeur persistante, la présence d’une puce NFC qui permettrait à l’iPhone 5 de devenir un nouveau moyen de paiement. Des indiscrétions qui devraient se multiplier d’ici le lancement de l’appareil, vraisemblablement à l’été prochain.Le 9 mars 2011 à 11:36 • Emmanuel Perrin

Domenic “Nicky” Palermo, 34, is in a pretty successful band, but that doesn’t mean he’s had a glamorous life. The frontman of the Philadelphia-based quartetNothing, founded in 2010, plays more than 100 shows per year for up to 1,000 people per show, but he grew up poor in a single-parent family. He’s even done time in jail.And he could never afford health care.“I’ve been a person who hasn’t had health insurance for pretty much my whole life since I was a kid,” Palermo said in a telephone interview with The Washington Post. “I’ve had broken bones. I’ve had to Super Glue my forehead shut when I hit myself with a guitar. I owe money to hospitals for things.”So Palermo was horrified this week to learn that Collect Records, with which Nothing had signed to release two albums, was bankrolled in part by Martin Shkreli. The Turing Pharmaceuticals chief executive was shredded this week by Hillary Clinton, among many, many others, for raising the price of a drug used to treat HIV/AIDS from $18 to $750, or more than 4,000 percent.“Price gouging like this in the specialty drug market is outrageous,” Clinton wrote on Twitter. Price gouging like this in the specialty drug market is outrageous. Tomorrow I’ll lay out a plan to take it on. -H https://t.co/9Z0Aw7aI6h— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) September 21, 2015 For Palermo, the problem was political. But it was also personal.“I just can’t spend that five years and then attach myself to someone who is doing what Martin is doing,” Palermo said of his time in Nothing.After facing global outrage and criticism of price-gouging customers for Daraprim, an important treatment for a parasitic infection that can be fatal to those with compromised immune systems, Shkreli retreated Tuesday.“We’ve agreed to lower the price on Daraprim to a point that is more affordable and is able to allow the company to make a profit, but a very small profit,” he told ABC News. “We think these changes will be welcomed.”Shkreli’s compromise may alleviate the concerns of humanitarians – but punk rock has a longer memory. Collect was founded by Geoff Rickly of the iconic band Thursday, who is known for his leftist politics – and now, his regret for Shkreli’s involvement with his label.“My head is still spinning, and though I want to believe that there is some reason that he would do this that is some remotely positive way, the only thing I can see is that it is totally and completely heartbreaking,” Rickly told Noisey about the CEO.Rickly said that he met Shkreli when the CEO – a Thursday fan – contacted him on Twitter to buy his guitar. “As a musician, steady income is hard to come by, so sometimes you do things to make ends meet,” Rickly said of the sale.But the transaction was the beginning of conversations that resulted in Shkreli becoming a “silent partner” in Collect. Rickly said the CEO’s involvement was limited – that he “never asked to see the bottom line” and had no “check and balance.” Morever, Shkreli supported Rickly when he tried to give more control to artists on the label – a punk-rock must.“There were no red flags at that time,” Rickly told Noisey. “I genuinely enjoyed his company, and I was just excited for the opportunity to work with him and to have someone who believed in my vision for the future.”Now, that bright future has turned to ashes.“I can’t see my future at all in the label,” he told Noisey.He pointed a finger at the system.“Artists get blamed for everything and capitalism is never held accountable,” he told Noisey. “I really think that if Collect is going to be scrutinized as being capitalism, but that is how music survives. I’m not making excuses for what has happened, but there is no corner of the music industry that doesn’t live and breathe from subsidies from business. It’s reductive and hypocritical to hold us and only us accountable though, we are all at fault in some greater way.”Some bands on the Collect roster, meanwhile, stood by Rickly – while stridently distancing themselves from Shkreli, saying they had never met him.“I personally 100% am NOT F-KING OK with this guy and his business tactics,” Hether Fortune of Wax Dolls, a Collect band, wrote on the band’s Facebook page. “If any of you have learned anything about me through being a fan of the band, I hope that you would know by now that this kind of advantageous rich guy greed goes against everything that I stand for.”She added: “Shkreli essentially donates money to the label. … Therefore by supporting Wax Idols and buying our record, you are NOT contributing to this a-hole’s bank account.”“We would like to make one thing clear – we would never knowingly work with Martin Shkreli, or anybody willing to walk across the backs of the sick and dying with a smile on their face for the sake of making a profit,” Creepoid, another Collect band, wrote on Facebook. “As long as Shkreli is involved with Collect Records, directly or indirectly, we cannot be.”Palermo of Nothing, meanwhile, said he has a new record – “Tired of Tomorrow” – that belongs to Collect, and isn’t sure how, when or if he can get his music away from the label and the stigma Shkreli has brought it. The CEO’s name isn’t on the contracts Palermo signed, he said, and the band is looking at its legal options.But what will Shkreli do if Nothing jumps ship?“We would probably need to speak to another label,” Palermo said. “We really don’t know what’s going on. That’s the f–ked part. Who knows how this guy could react?”Palermo added: “It’s kind of a bum out.”© 2015, The Washington Post Facebook Comments Related posts:‘Pharma Bro’ Shkreli arrested for securities fraud New bill would protect HIV positive employees from workplace discrimination Costa Rica doctors association alarmed by low vacciation rates of personnel as 17 dead from AH1N1 virus Untimely death of Costa Rica woman in US leaves family with $70,000 in medical bills

Parents, stop beating yourself up Writing for the court, Justice Samuel Alito said the justices wouldn’t take up the disability rights issue because it hadn’t been fully considered by lower courts.Qualified immunity protects public officials from being sued for damages unless the official violated a constitutional right that was clearly established at the time of the misconduct.Six justices agreed that the police officers could not be sued in this case. Justices Antonin Scalia and Elena Kagan wrote separately to say they would have dismissed the case entirely. Justice Stephen Breyer took no part in the case, as his brother was the federal judge who heard the case.The case had attracted attention from mental health advocates who said that failing to take account of a suspect’s disability often results in unnecessary shootings by police.Law enforcement groups also weighed in, saying a ruling in Sheehan’s favor could undermine police tactics, place officers and bystanders at risk and open them to additional liability.The ADA generally requires public officials to make “reasonable accommodations” to avoid discriminating against people with disabilities. But lower courts have split on how the law should apply to police conduct when public safety is at risk. Sponsored Stories Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

Don Shooter shows health improvement Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober The difference between men and women when it comes to pain Comments Share WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court ruled Monday that police are immune from a lawsuit arising from the arrest and shooting of a mentally ill woman in San Francisco.But the justices left undecided the question of whether police must take special precautions when arresting armed and violent people suffering from mental illness.The case involved a 2008 incident in which two police officers forced their way into Teresa Sheehan’s room at a group home and shot her five times after she came at them with a knife. Sheehan claimed the officers should have used less confrontational tactics because they are covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act. That law requires “reasonable accommodations” for people with mental illnesses. 4 sleep positions for men and what they mean Top Stories New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies The Supreme Court initially took up the case because the city argued that the disability act does not apply when police face armed and dangerous suspects. But then attorneys for the city changed their argument to say that Sheehan was not “qualified” for an accommodation under the law. Alito said it would not be “prudent” to decide a question that hadn’t been fully considered by lower courts.In Sheehan’s case, her social worker called police for help in restraining her so she could be taken to a hospital for treatment. Officers entered her room with a key, but Sheehan threatened them with a knife, so they closed the door and called for backup. But they said they weren’t sure whether Sheehan had a way to escape, and were concerned that she might have other weapons inside.The officers then forced their way in and tried to subdue her with pepper spray. But she continued to come toward them with the knife and was shot five times.A federal district court sided with the police, ruling that it would be unreasonable to ask officers trying to detain a violent, mentally disabled person to comply with the ADA before protecting themselves and others. But the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said a jury should decide whether it was reasonable for the officers to use less confrontational tactics.
