The works of five Nova Scotian artists have been gathered by theMuseum of Natural History, in partnership with Argyle Fine Art,as part of an engaging and evocative tribute to a creaturefamiliar to most Nova Scotians — the crow. Five Crows Silveropens on Saturday, May 29 at the Museum of Natural History inHalifax. Crows are not only familiar in our daily lives, they are alsoconspicuous elements in popular culture and folklore. Theexhibit’s title borrows its name from a centuries-old “countingcrows” rhyme and offers a mystical interpretation of these birds. “Crows are often passionately liked or disliked by people,” saidAdriana Afford, director of Argyle Fine Art in Halifax, “so it isnot surprising that they tend to be a recurring theme in varioustypes of artwork including literature, music and especially thevisual arts.” The exhibition continues this tradition through the presentationof 33 works by visual artists, Rose Adams, Alan Bateman, TaiyaBarss, Malcolm Callaway and Ivan Murphy. Through their own uniquestyle and artistic approach, each of the featured artists offersa different perspective and artistic response to crows and theirclose relatives. The museum is supplementing the artistic component of Five CrowsSilver with displays of current research and specimens pertainingto crows and their role in monitoring West Nile virus. Thedisplays will present information on how West Nile affects crowsin particular as well as other animals, including people. “Crows belong to the family Corvidae and are considered to beamong the most intelligent of all birds,” said Andrew Hebda,museum zoologist. “They are truly gregarious and engage in a widerange of social interactions that, when not for food or matingpurposes, can be considered to be play.” Five Crows Silver offers a unique opportunity to consider crowsthrough five distinct and exciting artistic expressions whilediscovering the environmental complexity of how a simple andbeautiful bird can be so devastated by a complex disease such asWest Nile virus. “This show is special in marrying the worlds of art and scienceand engaging the viewer to reflect on the highly intelligent,mystical, often playful bird and its future in our world,” saidMs. Afford. In Nova Scotia, the American crow, Corvus brachyrhynchos, is whatmost people will see. The raven, blue jay and grey jay (orwhiskey jack) also belong to the corvid family and are widespreadin this part of the world. Five Crows Silver is on display from Saturday, May 29 until Oct.31 at the Museum of Natural History, 1747 Summer St., Halifax.
VICTORIA – The unprecedented overdose death toll in British Columbia means it may be time to have a “courageous conversation” about decriminalizing the drugs that are killing so many people, says the province’s minister of addictions.While decriminalizing drugs is a federal matter, Judy Darcy said Thursday the province is doing everything it can to stem the number of deaths.“I think the fundamental issue here is we need to start treating addiction like a health issue,” she said, adding many people living with addictions are homeless or living in poverty.“We need to be pouring on the supports so that we have a pathway to hope for people and so they don’t end up in the criminal justice system.”The death toll from illicit drug overdoses reached 1,103 for the first nine months of this year, the coroners’ service said. In 2016, 982 people fatally overdosed in British Columbia.The opioid fentanyl was detected in about 83 per cent of the deaths, representing a 147 per cent increase over the same period last year, it said.In most cases, the powerful opioid painkiller was combined with other drugs, including cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine.Darcy said removing the threat of being arrested for those who are caught using the drugs could be helpful.“I think we should be prepared as a country to have a courageous conversation about it. In the meantime we are pushing the envelope and we are being bold and innovative in doing everything we can within the context of the present federal framework.”Health Canada said in an email statement that the federal government is not considering decriminalizing or legalizing all drugs.“The Government of Canada is committed to a comprehensive, collaborative, compassionate and evidence-based approach to drug policy, which uses a public health approach when considering and addressing drug issues,” the statement said.The statement said harm reduction has been restored as a core pillar of Canada’s drug policy, along with prevention, treatment and enforcement.Safe consumption sites have opened around the province for addicts and the coroner’s service said there have been no deaths at them.Ninety per cent of the deaths happened indoors, half of those in private homes.Darcy said her ministry is working to counter the factors that lead to most of the deaths.“We are also ramping up …. a major anti-stigma campaign and a major campaign to reach out to people who are using alone because nine out of 10 people who are dying are using at home alone. That’s about overcoming stigma, that’s about everybody in a family, in a community, friends reaching out and having conversations with people and reducing the stigma.”Three-quarters of those who died are between the ages of 30 and 59, and four out of five of them are male.The Fraser Health Authority, which covers Metro Vancouver neighbourhoods from Burnaby to Hope on the east side of the Fraser Valley, had the most deaths this year at 295, followed by Vancouver at 269.In 2012, fentanyl was detected in just four per cent of overdose deaths.Darcy said the government is looking at enlarging a program used at overdose prevention sites in Vancouver where people can check their illicit drugs for fentanyl.“But we plan to do everything we can including expanding drug checking to keep people safe from these poisoned drug supplies on the street.”

On this week’s “Hot Takedown,” Kate Fagan, Neil Paine and Chadwick Matlin look at some of the research on whether you need a star to win a title, or whether winning a title makes you a star. According to Neil’s analysis, the sport that relies on star players the most is basketball — then come baseball, football and hockey.
Social media is so addictive for children that the Government should classify it as “social harm” and make it carry health warnings. 5Rights, a children’s charity founded by Baroness Kidron, accuses internet giants of deliberately keeping children online for as long as possible so they could profit from collecting their data. The charity says apps and websites should “clearly and succinctly” state when… An investigation by the charity identifies five psychological features designed by the tech industry to keep children online, including reward mechanisms such as likes, hearts and comments to elicit a dopamine hit, and competition for popularity through counting friends, followers, and retweets.
Un fossile bouscule les théories sur l’apparition des pattes des animaux terrestresL’analyse de fossiles de Tiktaalik, des poissons vieux de 375 millions d’années, suggère que l’espèce pourtant aquatique présentait déjà des membres postérieurs articulés et robustes. Cette conclusion remet en question la théorie actuelle sur l’apparition des pattes selon laquelle celles-ci auraient évolué seulement après le passage sur terre.Une équipe de chercheurs américains est parvenue à mettre en évidence les caractéristiques morphologique postérieures chez des fossiles de Tiktaalik roseae. Étonnamment, les spécimens vieux de 375 millions d’années, présentent de nombreux attributs qui semblent être à mi-chemin entre les poissons et les animaux terrestres. Cette nouvelle découverte sous-entend que l’apparition des pattes arrières aurait débuté par des nageoires renforcées chez une espèce encore aquatique. Une conclusion qui vient remettre en question les théories précédentes selon lesquelles ces appendices auraient évolué seulement après le passage sur terre. “Jusqu’alors les paléontologues pensaient qu’une transition s’était produite d’une locomotion avec deux nageoires avant chez les poissons à une locomotion ‘à quatre appendices’ chez les tétrapodes”, précise dans un communiqué Neil Shubin, paléontologues à l’université de Chicago. “Il semblerait que cette transition se soit produite tout d’abord chez des poissons, pas chez des animaux terrestres quadrupèdes”, développe t-il. Avec ses collègues, le chercheur a entrepris l’étude du bassin et des nageoires postérieurs composant la partie arrière des squelettes de Tiktaalik. Une grande première, étant donné que seule la région antérieure avait pu être analysée depuis la mise au jour de cinq spécimens fossiles en 2004 sur l’île d’Ellesmere, dans l’arctique canadien.Mi-poisson, mi-tétrapode Les résultats, publiés dans la revue Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, dévoilent le Tiktaalik comme une créature à tête plate, longue d’environ 2,7 mètres. De manière générale, le spécimen présente un certain nombre de caractéristiques laissant à supposer qu’il s’agit d’un poisson. Son corps, couvert d’écailles est doté de nageoires et de branchies. Toutefois, celui-ci présente également des particularités spécifiques aux tétrapodes modernes comme un cou mobile, une cage thoracique robuste, ou encore une ceinture pelvienne et des articulations au niveau de ses nageoires arrières capables de soutenir le poids de son corps. “Le bassin de cet animal est de la même taille que l’épaule” indique Neil Shubin. À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Selon les chercheurs, cette créature a évolué dans les eaux douces et peu profondes de l’époque du Dévonien. Il a peut être même été capable de marcher sous l’eau.Des capacités uniquement aquatiques “Le Tiktaalik a probablement eu la possibilité d’utiliser ses nageoires pour se déplacer, pour pousser sur le fond peu profond, pour se frayer un chemin à travers les plantes, et, qui sait, peut-être pour sortir de l’eau brièvement s’il avait besoin de se déplacer vers un autre cours d’eau” indique à BBC News Ted Daeschler chercheur à l’Université Drexel, à Philadelphie. Mais en “aucun cas il n’était spécialisé pour sortir de l’eau ; il a pu avoir une certaine capacité de le faire, mais tout ce qui concerne sa reproduction, son système sensoriel, sa façon de chasser, sa respiration, toutes ces choses étaient liées à un environnement aquatique”.

Kylian Mbappe believes that Brazil, Germany and Spain will be the leading contenders for glory in Russia and added it will likely be the final chance for Belgium’s golden generation to win the World CupThe Paris Saint-Germain forward is currently preparing himself for his first appearance in world football’s biggest stage and recently brushed off concerns over a reported ankle injury ahead of France’s Group C opener against Australia.When pressed on who he believes will be the favourites to win at Russia, the 19-year-old admitted that he felt that France are not among the top candidates.“Brazil, Germany and Spain are at present three teams that are a little ahead of us,” said Mbappe, as stated on Goal.Quiz: How much do you know about David Villa?

Following the conclusion of the World Trade Organization’s Nairobi Ministerial this past weekend, the American Soybean Association (ASA) expresses its disappointment with the decision to allow the continued use of export subsidies by developing nations.Specifically, ASA is disappointed that the agreement on export competition reached at the WTO Ministerial in Nairobi will allow developing countries to use marketing, processing, and transportation subsidies for exported commodities under Article 9.4 until 2023 – practices that undercut U.S. exports and distort trade. ASA supported the position of the United States and many others that the ability of developing countries to utilize Article 9.4 export subsidies expired in 2004, at the end of the implementation period of the Uruguay Round commitments.“The Nairobi agreement effectively raises these subsidies from the dead and legitimizes their use without any meaningful discipline until 2023,” said ASA President Richard Wilkins, a farmer from Greenwood, Del. “It will be important for the U.S. Trade Representative to work to ensure that countries do not attempt to shield these programs by shifting their subsidies under Article 9.4.”“In addition, we saw India hold the Doha negotiations hostage in Bali and now again in Nairobi. India’s continued efforts to roll back previous commitments and to block meaningful trade liberalization by developing countries going forward makes us concerned about future talks,” said Wilkins. “We appreciate Ambassador Froman’s statement that the Doha Round is effectively over and that future negotiations must take place under a new architecture. Simply put, we believe the United States should only engage in future WTO negotiations it they occur under a markedly different framework than the flawed Doha mandate.”On the positive side, the Nairobi agreement does reflect the U.S. goal to immediately eliminate the use of export subsidies by developed countries, and includes a relatively short elimination period for their use by developing countries (other than the Article 9.4 export subsidies). Additionally, the agreement reached in Nairobi harmonizes terms of export credit programs with those of the U.S., and allows countries to continue their food aid programs, including monetization of commodities, as long as monetization does not disrupt local markets.“On balance, we are disappointed in the Nairobi results,” said Wilkins. “We recognize that U.S. negotiators faced a very difficult environment in which to make progress. The only silver lining to this agreement will be if future WTO negotiations truly take place on a new, sounder foundation that is based on the acceptance of greater disciplines by all parties. ASA will continue working with other U.S. farm and commodity groups, the Administration, and the Congress to insist that this be the case.”
There is little doubt that the Indian team will miss the services of their opener Shikhar Dhawan in the upcoming matches. What this also means is that the top order which consists of Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and captain Virat Kohli will have to step up and take up the mantle, and this extra responsibility might just spur the skipper to peel off a century against Afghanistan.Also, Kohli has an incentive or two when he steps out to bat against the Afghans. The Indian captain is 104 runs away from reaching 20,000 international runs. If he breaches the mark against Afghanistan, he will be the 12th batsman to this landmark and the 3rd Indian after Sachin Tendulkar (34,357 runs) and Rahul Dravid (24,208 runs) to do so.Currently, he sits on 11,020 runs in ODIs, 6,613 in Tests and 2,263 runs in T20Is, and will be the fastest batsmen to reach 20,000 international runs in the world. Sachin shares record with Brian Lara Virat KohliGetty imagesSachin Tendulkar shares this record with West Indies batting legend Brian Lara. Both Sachin and Lara had taken 453 innings to complete 20,000 international runs. The Indian skipper, on the other hand, has played only 415 innings so far – 131 in Tests, 222 in ODIs and 62 in T20Is. If he does get to this landmark, he will breeze past Tendulkar and Lara by a comprehensive margin.The third on the list is former Australia World Cup-winning captain Ricky Ponting, who had taken 468 innings to get to the feat. It has to be said here that the Indian captain has not been at his best at the World Cup, but despite this has scores of Australia (82) and Pakistan (77) and now with the absence of Shikhar Dhawan, he could well get to the elusive triple digit mark against Afghanistan on Sunday. In the match against Afghanistan, Australian opener David Warner slammed his 16th ODI hundred as he became only the second batsman to complete 16 ODI tons in 110 innings. Hashim Amla, who scored his 16th ODI century in 94 innings, holds the record for fewest innings to this feat. File photo: David WarnerDaniel Kalisz/Getty ImagesKohli has been winning hearts with his remarkable sportsman gesture. In the match against Australia, he prevented the Indian crowd from booing Steve Smith and instead, asked them to applaud the former Australian captain.”It was a lovely gesture by Virat. It doesn’t really bother me what the crowds do to be perfectly honest. I am just blocking it all out but it was a lovely gesture from him” Smith told reporters after Australia’s victory against Sri Lanka.

October 6, 2015 613 Views in Daily Dose, Government, Headlines, News Bipartisan Group Believes GSE Reform Not Happening Soon Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were placed into conservatorship seven years ago, and questions still linger as to how and when to reform the GSEs.The Bipartisan Policy Center hosted a keynote address and panel discussion titled “Housing Fiance Reform:Opportunities and Obstacles of Risk Sharing” on Tuesday.The event highlighted GSE reform and conservatorship, the need for more private capital in the financial system and to transfer risk away from taxpayers and GSEs, focusing on risk sharing, specifically “front-end,” which makes housing finance more sustainable.While the GSEs are experimenting with additional forms of risk sharing, all of them are handled on the back end after the loan is on the GSEs balance sheets.The keynote speakers were Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tennessee), member, Senate Banking Committee and Sen. Mark Warner (D-Virginia), ranking member, Senate Securities, Insurance, and Investment Banking Subcommittee.The other panel included Laurie Goodman, director of the housing finance policy center at Urban Institute; Mike Fratantoni, chief economist at the Mortgage Bankers Association; Kevin Chavers, managing director at BlackRock; Pat Sinks, CEO of Mortgage Guaranty Insurance Corp.; and Bob Ryan, acting deputy director of the division of conservatorship at the Federal Housing Finance Agency.Nic Retsinas, senior lecturer in real estate at Harvard Business School, moderated the panel.In June, a bipartisan group of Senate Banking Committee members wrote a letter to the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) requesting that the agency expand and provide better transparency of the development of the credit risk transfer programs.These programs shift credit risk from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to the private sector, according to a press release.”We supported the direction of the risk sharing language within Title VII of The Financial Regulatory Improvement Act of 2015, and we strongly support the expansion of these transactions, given they provide a vehicle for moving the government out of the first loss position and inform the process for policymakers looking to invite greater private capital into the market,” the senators noted in the letter.“The credit risk transfers are a vehicle for moving the housing market forward by attracting private sector investors, improving access to credit, and reducing taxpayer risk. As such, we ask that you prioritize work with the Enterprises on transactions designed specifically to push out first loss credit risk to the market, and to encourage transparency for investors and the public so that we can all better judge how these transactions impact returns to the Enterprises, costs to the taxpayer, and effects to the health of the broader housing finance system,” the letter stated.Coker cautioned that GSE reform could “be a while and won’t happen in the next year and four months. Some of our wingers are migrating over to this third amendment thing because it makes it easy not to do anything.”The overall consensus of the panelists was that moving forward, the goal should be to strengthen the housing market, build more capital, and enhance credit risk transfers.However, GSE reform could be a lengthy and a difficult issue to overcome as “legislation on this topic remains elusive, the new word for ‘not happening,’” the introductory speaker said.Video of the event will be posted here.

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Comments Share on the Cardinals defenseYeah, this is a really good defense. It seems like we keep running into great defenses to play. But the thing that jumps out at you is that they are fast, real aggressive, all over the place in what they do and part of it is going to be getting our guys on the right guys. Not getting confused and not getting caught up in all of the twists of the game that they do. They do a really good job of it so it will be a good challenge for us.

He grew up in Gilbert and attended Highland High School where he earned All-State honors after setting 12 school records as a senior.Despite growing up an ASU Sun Devil fan, Fitzpatrick attended college at Harvard. He is facing his childhood NFL team for the first time Sunday.Fitzpatrick spoke to those of us in the local media on a conference call earlier: on being able to spend the week in ArizonaIt is a unique situation for me to be able to spend some time at home with my family during the season in Arizona. Monday and Tuesday were nice, but now it is really getting down to business again. Really focusing in on this week–the game plan and studying the Cardinals a little bit.on his memories of going to Sun Devil Stadium I have so many memories at Sun Devil Stadium. Both of my parents went to (Arizona State) and growing up we used to go to all the games. We used to park all the way across campus and a mile plus and walk to the stadium. I wish I had an exact year for you, but it was some down years all the way through the Rose Bowl. It was great family time for me, my three brothers and parents to go to all of those games. Growing up in that stadium really and learning the game. It will be cool, even on the ASU practice field because I went to all of those camps growing up. on his memories of attending Highland High School It is funny because there are so many memories and it has just been a while for me. It has been 12 years since I was there and there has been a lot of football and memories that I have had since then. Just sitting down and being able to sit down with (my high school coach Mike Reardon) and kind of rehash some of that stuff. It was a great experience for me. I had a really good time there and I think he was an amazing coach. A guy that really cared for me and cared for his players. He helped me out so much, just in terms of the recruiting process. Working for me and trying to get teams to give me a look far and wide. West Coast to East Coast. I will always be indebted to him not only for the experience he gave me, but for all of the hard work he put in so I could play college football.

faces an uphill legal battle related to 26 million vehicles recently recalled over malfunctioning ignition switches The decision came in a lawsuit brought against them by a couple seeking compensation for the lost value of their recalled 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt Their Cobalt was recalled along with millions of other GM vehicles after it was discovered the cars’ ignition switches can be inadvertently set to “off” while the car is being operated disabling power steering and other features The ignition switch problem has been linked to at least 13 deaths The couples’ lawsuit demanded “park it now” notices for every vehicle included in the recall which would’ve forced owners of the affected cars to keep their vehicles off the road GM opposed issuing such notices claiming the car is safe if nothing is attached to the key in the ignition and arguing that taking all affected cars off the road would be a logistical nightmare The judge in the case ruled that determining whether the cars need to be taken off the road is up to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Although the judge’s decision is a win for GM it’s just one in a growing series of legal battles against the

before changing his mind on the day of the strike Contact us at editors@timecomPrince Harry and Meghan Markle’s forthcoming royal baby may well never be a prince or princess because of century-old protocol But if the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have a baby girl she will never be a duchess either even though the first-born son of the royal couple have could become a duke Markle who describes herself as a feminist on her official royal biography page hasn’t revealed the sex of her baby But her pregnancy has highlighted what some say is a glaring injustice in the UK’s laws on nobility: with few exceptions women are not allowed to inherit their father’s titles That means though Meghan and Harry’s son would be born the Earl of Dumbarton and eventually become the Duke of Sussex when Harry passes away their daughter would not be given the title of countess or duchess If the royal couple have no sons the title would die out or possibly pass to a distant relative “The Queen has done all she can to change this” Imogen Lloyd Webber a royal watcher and ABC News royal correspondent tells TIME She says any change “has to come from the House of Lords” But in 2013 the House of Lordswhich is made up mostly of former members of parliament individuals given honors by former prime ministers and members of the aristocracy voted down an attempt to remove the word “male” from the UK’s primogeniture laws which govern inheritance of titles (The House of Lords has nearly three times as many men as women) The British nobility also known as the peerage dates back to the 12th century when English monarchs began awarding titles to wealthy landowners According to a 2010 study a third of the land in Britain is still owned by the aristocracy Along with titles nobles got a voice in government sitting in the House of Lords which until the 16th Century was the more powerful branch of the British government Today it has a role in amending and vetoing legislation put forward by the elected House of Commons In 1999 the number of hereditary seats in the House of Lords was limited to 92 (out of 797 total seats) with nobles entitled to put themselves forward to take the seats when one of the seats becomes available In July five British noble women filed a case against the UK government at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg France arguing that the system amounts to “state-sanctioned sexual discrimination” and violates Article 14 of the European Convention on Human Rights Charlotte Carew Pole leader of the group says she’s aware that their case may seem trivial to some “One could argue that titles are irrelevant and that may be a very good point But while they exist it is outrageous that women cant inherit them” she says Carew Pole whose husband is heir to the Pole Baronetcy got into the fight because of her 3 year-old daughter who stands to lose her title to her two year-old brother “I dont want my daughter to feel that shes not as good as my son” she says Since the 1960s lands have not necessarily had to be passed down to sons but Carew Pole says many aristocratic families “prefer to keep lands and titles together” and therefore usually favor sons over daughters “From Prince Harry down to a sheep farmer on a mountain in Wales they will leave their land to a boy” says Liza Campbell who has the title of lady though she doesn’t use it She is the second daughter of the 6th Earl of Cawdor The title also known as Thane of Cawdor was made famous by a character of the same name in Shakespeare’s Macbeth When Campbell’s father died in 1993 the earldom passed not to her older sister but to her younger brother Colin Campbell says she’d be happy to scrap the system of nobility “if that’s what people want” but that wouldn’t erase sexism within aristocratic families “In terms of inheritance the sexism would just get swept under the rug We need a rule to tell fathers: You can’t treat your daughter as a lesser creature than your son” For Carew Pole and Campbell the most serious consequence of the male heir rule lies in the fact that women are excluded from the hereditary seats in the House of Lords “That means almost an eighth of our upper house is reserved for men” Carew Pole says “It’s staggering” Only one of the 92 peers is currently a woman: Margaret of Mar whose family’s title is one of the few in the country that can pass to a female heir Historically the royal family have avoided taking up their seats in the House of Lords meaning it’s unlikely that a daughter of Meghan and Harry would be disenfranchised by that factor Carew Pole hopes she may have a new ally in the Duchess of Sussex “You would think that the feminist princess would wholeheartedly disapprove of the fact that women cant inherit” she says “But of course shes not allowed to say anything because shes a royal now” There is no law against the royals having political opinions but since the Queens constitutional role is to represent the entire country the royal family typically refrains from taking sides in political issues to avoid making life difficult for her Campbell believes it’s unfair that Harry’s children will be “stuck in a sexist system” while the children of his older brother William will not thanks to the UK parliament updating royal succession laws in 2013 The law means Princess Charlotte 3 was not bumped further down the line to the throne by her five month-old brother Prince Louis “It seems a pretty stark difference” Campbell says “It’s just absurd” Write to Ciara Nugent at ciaranugent@timecom The new security

not just Hollywood its the same for girls and women all over the world who have survived sexual abuse and/or harassment abusers dont usually get in trouble unless the victim is broken first because the violating act alone is not damaging enough to spark societys outrage Its a marathon towards self-destruction in order to gain credibility and a vicious circle of victim-blaming When people ask how these men in powerful positions were able to hurt so many people for so many years I look to the people at the top and ask those questions The system that lets men like Ratner and Allen back in is the same system that creates disparity Its tilted to roll back into their favor while the rest of us are saddled with a Sisyphean task Imagine Hollywood as a mountain with all of the powerful people positioned at the top The rest of us have to push a boulder up this hill while running through numerous gauntlets and any abuse we encounter is just par for the course and accepted I know its
