A major infrastructure project will extend the life of the Angus L. Macdonald Bridge, ensuring an important piece of Nova Scotia’s road network will be in place for decades to come. “Anyone who travels between Halifax and Dartmouth knows how important the Macdonald bridge is to their commute. This project will ensure the bridge continues to serve travellers and our region well into the future,” said Finance Minister Maureen MacDonald, minister responsible for the Halifax-Dartmouth Bridge Commission. “Investments in public infrastructure contribute to a growing economy and ensure we are well-positioned for the significant opportunities on the horizon.” The province and the Halifax-Dartmouth Bridge Commission have a loan agreement to a maximum of $200 million. This capital project is being financed through the general revenue fund and will have no impact on the province’s net debt. Like past projects funded through provincial loan agreements, the commission will repay the loan to the province. “Nova Scotians want to know we are getting the best value for our dollar. And this financing arrangement will result in significant savings for bridge users,” said Ms. MacDonald. Beginning in 2015, the bridge road deck, floor beams, stiffening trusses and suspender ropes will be replaced. This will extend the life of the 60-year-old span and reduce future maintenance. “This is the largest project we have undertaken since the MacKay bridge was built over 40 years ago,” said Steve Snider, general manager and CEO for the Halifax-Dartmouth Bridge Commission. “It is only the second time the suspended spans of a suspension bridge will be replaced overnight with traffic operating during the day. It’s an exciting project to undertake and it will attract world-wide attention.” Engineering work and other planning began in 2010. A number of local firms have been contracted for the work, and HDBC has held information sessions so local companies can better understand project requirements and how they can take advantage. Bid criteria will focus on best value, as well as economic, workforce and other benefits to Nova Scotia. For more information about the Macdonald bridge re-decking project, visit www.hdbc.ca .
New Delhi: Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal on Tuesday hit out at the BJP over the detention of Farooq Abdullah under the Public Safety Act and questioned whether the step was prompted by MDMK chief Vaiko’s plea in the Supreme Court seeking a directive that the former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister be produced before it. Abdullah has now been detained under the stringent Public Safety Act (PSA), which enables authorities to detain any individual for two years without trial.

Ramesh and Mohan came to Tamil Nadu as refugees in 1997. They were staying outside the camp, raised money and bought a ferry for 31 lakh and kept it on Yanam coast. They planned to set sail on July 5. They ordered 13 plastic tanks to take water and enrolled 50 refugees and collected money from them. Chennai Police busted a human trafficking racket and arrested two Sri Lankan Tamils for collecting money from refugees staying in camps in the state promising to take them to Australia through illegal ferries. Police also seized a satellite phone from them.Acting on a tip-off, ‘Q’ branch police picked up Ramesh alias Ramachandran (38) and Gandhi Mohan (40) from Red Hills. Inquiries revealed that Ramesh and Mohan, who hail from Trincomalee in Sri Lanka, were planning to leave to Christmas Island, a part of Australia, by a ferry from Yanam, off Andhra Pradesh coast. “We got the tip-off from a refugee staying in a camp. We went to the hideout and nabbed the duo who were preparing for the journey. The two had collected 1.5 lakh from each refugee. Some others had given them 50,000 as advance,” a senior police officer said. The ferry carrying 40-50 people would reach the island after a 15-day journey. Once they enter Australian waters and are captured, they are taken to a refugee camp. (Times of India)
LLOYDMINSTER, Sask. — Husky Energy has pleaded guilty in a pipeline leak that sent oil spilling into a major river and fouled the source of drinking water for thousands of people.The spill into the North Saskatchewan River in July 2016 forced the cities of North Battleford, Prince Albert and Melfort to shut off their water intakes for almost two months.Calgary-based Husky entered guilty pleas on one provincial and two federal environmental charges in provincial court in Lloydminster, Sask. Husky Energy cuts long-term spending to boost cash flow, shareholder returns Why Husky’s inability to clinch the MEG deal is a negative for its stock After 80 years, Husky Energy mulls putting its gas stations and Prince George refinery on the block The two federal charges under the Fisheries Act and the Migratory Birds Convention Act relate to the deposit of a harmful substance into water frequented by fish and birds.The provincial conviction is for “allowing the discharge of a substance … into the environment” causing an adverse effect.The federal Crown withdrew seven other charges.About 40 per cent of 225,000 litres of diluted heavy oil from Husky’s pipeline near Maidstone in west-central Saskatchewan made it into the river.It caused an oil plume that flowed hundreds of kilometres downstream.The charges were announced in May 2018 after a 19-month joint federal-provincial investigation.Husky had already apologized for the spill and said it accepted full responsibility. The company said the pipeline buckled and leaked because of ground movement.The pipeline was allowed to restart in October 2016 after being repaired and inspected.The company pegged the cleanup cost at more than $107 million. Husky said more than 90 per cent of the oil was recovered.A victim impact statement filed Wednesday by three Indigenous communities in the area said the cleanup wasn’t good enough.Chief Wayne Semaganis spoke on behalf of his Little Pine First Nation and also for the Sweetgrass and Red Pheasant bands.He said birds, wildlife and fish such as walleye and northern pike still suffer the effects of the oil contamination. As a result, the First Nations have lost traditional use of their land.“We no longer fish in the river. We no longer trap on or near reserve lands. We no longer farm on or near reserve lands,” he said.“We no longer drink water drawn from reserve lands. In fact, many will only drink bottled water.” Semaganis said the Indigenous communities are still feeling the impact of the spill and residents remain anxious, fearful and psychologically stressed.“We are absolutely clear about two facts … the cleanup of the contamination is inadequate and incomplete.”The cities of North Battleford and Prince Albert also filed victim impact states with the court.Prince Albert’s statement, read out by the Crown, said the spill caused significant disruption and stress for many parties and considerable losses to individuals and businesses.Spray parks were closed at the peak of the summer holidays. Laundry mats were shut down. Car washes couldn’t operate and businesses had to close.“The city was forced to implement its emergency operations centre.” said the statement ready by provincial prosecutor Matthew Miazga.In addition, the city had to add temporary lines to two nearby rivers for drinking water.Judge Lorna Dyck was expected to sentence Husky later Wednesday.

The Vancouver City Council approved a resolution Monday night letting the Bonneville Power Administration know they’d appreciate it if the federal agency would keep its proposed high-voltage power lines out of the urban area.Of the proposed routes through Clark County for a new 500,000-kilovolt line, the city’s resolution states at least two lie within the city limits, and more are in the growth area, according to the resolution.In the three-page document, the city acknowledges the need for the new line. But it also states that the 150-foot towers would “have dramatic and long-term effects on homes and businesses in Vancouver,” and asks Bonneville to choose the “least disruptive route possible.”No authorityThe council does not have any authority over the decision on where a new line would go — beyond several environmental impact studies, that call rests with the BPA.But by drafting the resolution, the city council has officially stepped into a high-tension debate between concerned citizens and the BPA.Bonneville officials say the Troutdale, Ore., to Castle Rock line is necessary to ease congestion in the Northwest’s power grid, which it says will be overloaded by 2016 without the new line.

Share APMany only know Norma McCorvey by a name that’s not hers.Under the pseudonym Jane Roe, McCorvey became the central figure of Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion in the U.S. But in the decades that followed, the complex woman came to serve as a champion at times for both sides of the deep divide over abortion rights.McCorvey died Saturday of heart failure at the age of 69, according to her daughter Melissa, and Joshua Prager, a journalist who is writing a book about the court case, says McCorvey died in Katy, Texas.How McCorvey became RoeIt was her third pregnancy — after Melissa, her eldest, and another child McCorvey gave up for adoption — that brought McCorvey to the attention of the lawyers who would eventually take up her case. The 22-year-old McCorvey, who was then unmarried, had been seeking an abortion but could not find a doctor in Texas who would perform the procedure, which was then illegal except when the life of the mother was endangered.Attorneys Sarah Weddington and Linda Coffee took up McCorvey’s case, and in 1970, they filed the lawsuit that — after several twists and turns — would ultimately wind up at the Supreme Court. By the time the ruling was finally passed down in 1973, however, McCorvey had already carried her pregnancy to term, and had given the child up for adoption.Though Roe v. Wade may not have changed McCorvey’s particular circumstances, the landmark Supreme Court ruling had a massive effect on the cultural and political landscape of the United States. The 7-2 decision, which invalidated state bans on abortion in the U.S., may not have started the long-simmering dispute over the procedure, but it came to be its central flashpoint in the decades that followed.McCorvey after the decisionAs Julie Rovner reported for NPR in 2013 — the decision’s 40th anniversary — opinions on the ruling remained as deeply entrenched as the year it was handed down.“Over the past two decades, opinion on whether or not Roe should be overturned has barely changed,” Rovner reported at the time, citing a Pew Research Center poll. “In 1992, 60 percent of those asked said the court should not overturn the ruling. Today that’s up to 63 percent.”The case had no less of an impact later on McCorvey, who was still just 25 when it ended. She maintained her anonymity for more than a decade, until setting it aside in the 1980s. At that point, she remained a staunch defender of abortion rights, “working for a time at a Dallas women’s clinic where abortions were performed,” according to The Associated Press.Yet in the mid-1990s, after the publication of her first memoir, McCorvey underwent a dramatic conversion — announcing that she had become a born-again Christian. What’s more, she went to work for the anti-abortion group Operation Rescue, from which position she then championed against the abortion rights granted by the case that bears her pseudonym.“I’ll be serving the Lord and helping women save their babies. I will hold a pro-life position for the rest of my life,” McCorvey once said, explaining her conversion. “I think I’ve always been pro-life. I just didn’t know it.”In an interview with Fresh Air in the ’90s, McCorvey looked back on her experience as Jane Roe.“I feel like a role model in one sense of the word,” McCorvey said.“But when people really stop and really sit down and think about Jane Roe or Norma McCorvey, I feel like any woman who’s ever been denied anything in her whole life is a Jane Roe. Because no woman should have to suffer all the pain and humiliations and indignities that I’ve had to face.”Copyright 2017 NPR. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/.
So far the launch of the 3DS seems to have gone very well for Nintendo with no real hiccups. But soon after the launch across Europe last week some gamers started reporting a “black screen of death” (BSoD).The good news is, it isn’t that widespread, the bad news for those suffering the problem is that it’s unclear what is causing it. It has happened while playing several different games and at different screens or states. One player had it happen when viewing an in-game menu, another was playing online, and yet another way just playing a single-player session in one of the affected titles.The games it has occurred in so far include:Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Shadow WarsPilotwings ResortSuper Monkey Ball 3DSuper Street Fighter IV 3DLego Star Wars III: The Clone WarsThere’s also been reports that it happened during use of the Mii applications suggesting this is related to the hardware rather than being a software issue.Users trying to fix the issue themselves may have found a cure by reformatting the SD card to be FAT-32. Others have just reset the device and carried on playing, but it does recur in some cases. Some gamers could get that to work, though, and a small percentage of 3DS devices have been turned into paperweights and returned to retailers.The good news is Nintendo can now easily issue updates and patches to all devices so we are sure the issue will be identified and a patch released as soon as possible. What’s surprising is that this only showed up on the European launch, and not the Japanese launch last month.Read more at VG247 and Kotaku (BSoD image courtesy of NeoGAF)

Mayor Garcetti announces reopening of Historic Angles Flight RailwayMayor Garcetti announces reopening of Historic Angles Flight Railway Mayor Eric Garcetti has announced that Angels Flight, the iconic Downtown Los Angeles railway, has reopened to the public after a three-year closure.The Mayor celebrated the opening alongside Councilmember José Huizar, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, Angels Flight Railway Foundation, and the private partners that helped modernise the funicular over the last six months.“Angels Flight is so much more than a railway — it’s a bridge to our history, and a window into countless moments of joy and wonder that have helped shape L.A.’s story for more than century,” said Mayor Garcetti. “I am grateful to our partners, who had the vision and persistence to bring this treasure back to the people of our City, and I look forward to sharing it with the world for generations to come.”The world-renowned, 116-year-old funicular takes passengers on a scenic ride between Hill and Olive Streets on Bunker Hill. It reopens after a three-year closure for a full-scale modernisation with state-of-the-art safety upgrades made possible through a unique public-private partnership.“In a City with as storied a history as Los Angeles, Angel’s Flight is a treasure that captivates us universally as Angelenos,” said Council member José Huizar. “It speaks to our past and a restored and safer Angels Flight points to our future as a modern, multi-modal Downtown Los Angeles. I want to thank Mayor Garcetti, the Angels Flight Railway Foundation and the ACS Group for all their effort in helping us bring this City of Los Angeles gem back to life.”Originally opened in 1901, Angels Flight — the world’s shortest railway — has given more than 100 million rides along its hillside track. It closed temporarily in 2013, but earlier this year, the California Public Utilities Commission certified a plan to upgrade Angels Flight to meet the highest safety standards.In March of this year, Mayor Garcetti announced an agreement with the Angels Flight Railway Foundation and ACS Group to recondition, operate, and maintain the funicular for the next 30 years.“We are witnessing a historic moment for our City. Angels Flight Railway is back and in great hands,” said Adele Yellin, Chair of Angels Flight Railway Foundation Board. “Thank you Mayor Garcetti and your transportation director, Borja Leon for your support and perseverance. Congratulations to the ACS and SENER teams for successfully obtaining the needed approvals and completing the required improvements to ready Angels Flight Railway back into passenger service. See you on the tracks!”“ACS, together with its contractor, Dragados USA, and its project partner Sener Engineering, is honoured to be working with the Angels Flight Railway Foundation, the City of Los Angeles, and LA Metro, and is excited to be celebrating the re-opening of the historic Angels Flight,” said Nuria Haltiwanger, CEO of ACS Infrastructure Development, Inc. “This project is not just about connecting people from the top and bottom of Bunker Hill. It is about connecting Angelenos to the history of their vibrant City. This is a shining example of what a public-private partnership can help achieve and how it can bring a community together. We are thankful for the opportunity to help preserve this iconic landmark in Los Angeles, and look forward to many years of providing the community with safe and enjoyable rides on Angels Flight. “In addition to being an iconic tourist attraction, the funicular will serve as an important transit connection between the Metro station at Pershing Square and the top of Bunker Hill — an area that includes Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Broad Contemporary Art Museum, MOCA, and the Los Angeles Music Center, among other cultural institutions.Angels Flight is open to the public 365 days a year for US $1 per ride. Metro Tap Card holders will receive a fifty percent fare discount for the next three years.Source = Angels Flight

Altogether, the list includes 17 cities—all of which boast an average monthly mortgage that does not exceed 28 percent of the median household income for the area.According to Steve Hovland, Director of Research at HomeUnion, millennials face a predicament in today’s housing market.”We know that millennials would like to own a home, but we also know that they struggle to find suitable for-sale options near major employment centers due to high home prices and low inventory,” Hovland said. “Homes in metro areas like Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York City, where many millennials prefer to live, are out of reach for the most of the millennial generation because of the disparity between prices and incomes. They are also burdened with high levels of student loan debt, which makes homeownership an additional challenge.”Aside from Milwaukee, other zip codes ideal for millennial renters are 40243 (Louisville, Kentucky); 78705 (Austin, Texas); 73165 (Oklahoma City, Oklahoma); 63126 (St. Louis, Missouri). The full list included 24 zip codes where rent did not exceed 2.5 times gross income for the region.To determine the best zip codes on both lists, HomeUnion looked at factors like school ratings, commute time, median income, and more. Only zip codes with cities in at least the 80th percentile were included.”To help millennials with their housing predicament,” Hovland said, “we created a comprehensive list of zip codes that are the most affordable with excellent public schools, and also have the shortest commute times to job centers.”To view the full list of results, click here.
