first_imgCALGARY – The Royal Canadian Mint is paying homage to Canada’s fallen with a special toonie now in circulation for the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge.The commemorative $2 coin, which depicts two soldiers standing on either side of an image of the Vimy memorial in France, was officially unveiled at the Military Museums in Calgary on Thursday.Canadian troops secured a hard-fought victory at Vimy Ridge in April 1917.Nearly 11,000 died in the battle.However, it helped lead to Canada’s recognition as an independent nation and helped create a newfound sense of pride and national unity.Officials with the Royal Canadian Mint said they drew inspiration for the coin from the Vimy memorial.“I was truly, genuinely moved by their beauty and the significance of the story they represent,” said Sandra Hanington with the Royal Canadian Mint. “We are deeply proud to use our state-of-the-art coins to share profound historic moments that have shaped our nation and compel us to reflect on what it means to be Canadian.”Jeremy Diamond with the Vimy Foundation said the coin is a way for Canadians to carry a little piece of history.“This is like having a little textbook in your pocket all the time or a little video clip in your pocket all the time. It’s always an opportunity now to learn a little bit about our history,” said Diamond.The coin is part of a continuing series over the next six years that will mark important events in both World Wars.(CTV Calgary, CFFR)last_img read more

Israeli Closure of Al-Aqsa Mosque “a Collective Punishment”

October 12, 2019 0 Comments

Toronto- Closed since Friday morning following the shooting deaths of five people, the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem’s Old City has become the focal point of rising tensions between Israelis and Palestinians.According the Palestinian Authority’s minister of religious affairs, Sheikh Yusuf Idis, “There is no excuse for the closure of Al-Aqsa mosque, and we oppose this decision.”He added that, “The freedom to worship is a right guaranteed in law and any violation of that right is rejected.” On Friday morning, outside one of the entrances to the mosque, two Israeli police officers were shot and killed, allegedly by three Palestinian assailants who were themselves shot and killed by responding Israeli police.This is the first time in nearly fifty years that the mosque, called Temple Mount by Israel, has been closed to worship. Palestinians resorted to praying in the streets in response to the closure.Sheikh Mohammed Hussein, Jerusalem’s mufti, spent a brief time in detention on Friday following an attempt on his part to access the mosque’s compound. In the end, he held open-air prayers nearby. He was released on bail the same day.The attack has raised a discussion in the Israeli Knesset regarding security at the site. Right-wing members of parliament are calling for stepped up measures in light of the incident and that has Palestinians concerned that any such move could signal an eventual shift in the status quo at Al-Aqsa.For OferZalzberg, senior analyst for Israel/Palestine at the International Crsis Group, Palestinian concern is to be expected. “This is a decision that aims to deter further attacks and it will be interpreted by most Palestinians as collective punishment.”Having said that, Zalzberg also feels that any permanent shift to the current agreement governing the mosque’s day-to-day operations is unlikely. In an interview with Al Jazeera, he explained that “[Netanyahu] needs to do crisis management and he does not want to find himself losing relations with Jordan, when strategically they need each other so much in south Syria. He doesn’t want to ruin the emerging relations that he’s trying to build with the Gulf.”Still, the Knesset has heard some strenuous arguments for sweeping policy change as a result of Friday’s bloodshed. Eli Ben Dahan, Israel’s deputy defense minister as well as being a member of the Jewish Home right-wing group, said that “Israel must bolster its rule and control over the [holy sites], and to ensure that all Jews can pray there at any time in safety.”Another Jewish Home MK, Moti Yegev, said the holy site “should be closed to Muslim [worshippers] for a long time.”Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the compound was shut for security reasons, noting that the status quo would be “preserved.” There is no official word when the mosque will re-opened to worship but Sunday has been mentioned as the earliest possible date. read more

Rabat – There is good news for travelers. Royal Air Maroc (RAM) is set to launch a direct flight linking Casablanca and Miami in April 2019.According to Miami International Airport (MIA), RAM will operate three weekly round-trip flights, connecting Florida’s Miami and Casablanca.RAM selected the new-generation Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner to operate the flight. The plane accommodates 18 business class and 255 economy class passengers, according to MIA.Flights will take off from Casablanca at 6:20 a.m. (Moroccan time) and arrive at MIA at 7:05 p.m. (Eastern time). The following day, the flight will depart MIA at 8:45 p.m. and arrive in Casablanca at 10:55 a.m.Satisfied with the new air route, Miami-Dade Aviation Director Lester Sola said, “Royal Air Maroc’s announcement is a major milestone in the 90-year history of Miami International Airport. We have long sought to re-establish nonstop passenger service to Africa, and to accomplish that with an airline and a destination of this caliber is an added bonus.”The airport also quoted Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez, who congratulated RAM for the decision.“I offer my congratulations and thanks to Royal Air Maroc for its decision to make Miami its first destination in Florida. Casablanca is one of the most historic, picturesque and influential cities in Africa, and we are proud to establish this first-ever connection between our two world cities,” he said.On July 26, Royal Air Maroc submitted an application to the US Department of Transportation to get approval for its Miami-Casablanca offer.The statement from RAM said that the company requested permission to “enable it to engage in scheduled foreign air transportations, of persons, property and mail between Casablanca, Morocco (CMN) and Miami, FL (MIA).”RAM wants to operate the flight for an initial period of two years, or more depending on what the department “may determine.”RAM also recalled its 40 years of operating services linking Morocco with New York and Washington, D.C.Created in 1957, RAM operates in more than 90 destinations with 55 airplanes. read more

Remarkable Milestone UN mission hails 10year anniversary of Liberias peace accord

October 2, 2019 0 Comments

“The anniversary of Liberia’s Comprehensive Peace Agreement is a chance for us to come together and commit anew to keep working to strengthen the foundations of Liberia’s peace and stability,” said a statement from Karin Landgren, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General in Liberia.“I would like to congratulate the Liberian people, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and the Government for their unwavering commitment to the consolidation of peace and to advancing Liberia’s development,” added Ms. Landgren, who is also the head of the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL).To mark the 10th anniversary, thousands of Liberians have for the past several days displayed the country’s red, white and blue flag, and taken part in cultural celebrations in the capital Monrovia and around the country. Liberia’s civil war lasted 14 years before it ended with the signing on 18 August 2003 of the Comprehensive Peace Accord in Accra, Ghana. It called for, among other things, the establishment of a National Transitional Government and the implementation of a disarmament, demobilization, rehabilitation, and reintegration (DDRR) programme for the country’s ex-combatants. Some 150,000 people, mostly civilians, were killed during the war, and some 750,000 became either internally displaced or fled the country amidst the violence and instability.The UN Security Council created UNMIL that year to bolster the accord by helping to restore the rule of law and democratic processes, as well as to facilitate humanitarian assistance.The security transition in which the Government will progressively take over UNMIL’s responsibilities began in October, marking a new phase for the country.“Guns in the hands of young people have been replaced by pens and school books,” Ms. Landgren said noting some of the achievements of the past 10 years. “Refugees have returned home with hope for the future, and schools are opening their doors across the nation, to educate future generations of leaders.”She noted, however, that in the coming months Liberians would have an important opportunity to participate in community meetings on revising the constitution to strengthen foundations of a more democratic and just political system. Citizens also have an opportunity to become involved in processes under Liberia’s reconciliation roadmap, launched in June. The UN envoy also called on youth to be involved in the country’s political life: “the Government is increasing access to security and justice services for citizens across Liberia, and I encourage young people to seek careers in these fields.” read more

The AirIn Shower saves water by filling droplets with air

September 21, 2019 0 Comments

first_imgImagine using a water-saving shower that doesn’t feel like a water-saving shower. This is exactly what Toto has managed to invent, an interchangeable shower head that uses 35% less water than a normal shower head.Most water-saving showers save water by making the holes on the head smaller but this often means your shower doesn’t feel as cleansing, as you end up with a fine mist instead of a proper shower. This one is different, it’s called the Air-In Shower because it aerates the water to make the water droplets larger. In layman’s terms, it fills the water droplets with air so that you’re not using as much water as a regular shower but the volume of the water shouldn’t feel lower.Not only will it save water, it also reduces the total energy use of a shower. Toto estimates that a family of four would save 15,300 yen ($180) a year in water and gas bills with their product. It also cuts CO2 emissions by 146kg.The Air-In Shower isn’t a totally new product, the first shower that used the head came out in April 2010 and by October this year, TOTO had sold over 200,000 units. But now the shower head will be available to buy as a stand-alone product for 5,900 yen ($70) which is a small price to pay for something that saves you $180 a year. From February next year, TOTO will be selling all their fittings and taps with the Air-In Shower technology as standard.Without trying it in real life, it’s hard to measure the difference between how a normal shower feels compared to the Air-In Shower but from what the video shows, the volume of the water on the Air-In Shower actually looks better. I’m sure most people would welcome an invention that saves them money.via Diginfotvlast_img read more

Its biggest users are the United States and China.Nicaragua last year launched construction of an ambitious $50 billion rival canal that could handle even larger ships.
