North Korea fires several unidentified projectiles

first_imgSeoul: North Korea launched “multiple unidentified projectiles” on Wednesday, Seoul said, days after firing two ballistic missiles as a warning to the South over planned joint military drills with the United States. A “number of projectiles” were fired from the Wonsan area on the east coast at dawn, said an official with South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff. “We can’t say at this point how far they flew and are analysing them while preparing for additional possible launches,” the official told AFP.

Pyongyang and Washington are engaged in a long-running diplomatic process over the North’s nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programmes that has seen three high-profile meetings between their leaders in the space of a year.

Kim and Trump agreed to resume nuclear talks during their impromptu June encounter in the Demilitarized Zone that divides the peninsula, but that working-level dialogue has yet to begin. Pyongyang has warned the talks could be derailed by Washington and Seoul’s refusal to scrap the annual manoeuvres between their forces. Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo did not address the launch but said talks would “start before too long,” without giving details.last_img read more

Classaction lawsuit alleges systemic abuse at defunct private Christian school

first_imgA group of former students are set to take the private Christian school they attended to court next week, alleging in a class-action lawsuit that they were subjected to psychological abuse designed to erode their sense of safety.The certified class action, which has spent more than a decade winding its way through the legal system, will see five plaintiffs represent former residential students who attended Grenville Christian College in Brockville, Ont., between 1973 and 1997.“The conduct of the defendants … was calculated to produce harm and did, in fact, produce physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual harms,” the students’ statement of claim reads. “The defendants fostered an atmosphere of fear, intimidation, anxiety and suspicion.”The plaintiffs are suing the school and the estates of two of its former headmasters — Charles Farnsworth, who died in 2015, and J. Alastair Haig, who died in 2009 — along with some family members who also worked at the school for $200 million in damages for allegedly breaching their duty to take care of the students.The students allege they were cut off from communicating with their families, kept under constant surveillance and subjected to “exorcisms” and so-called “light sessions.”“Students were forced to confess sins, real or imagined, as the individual defendants and other staff members challenged and/or screamed at the students,” the statement of claim says. “Students were compelled to confess imagined sins and to betray other students.” Several students also alleged they were beaten with wooden paddles. The allegations have not been proven in court.The students were permanently affected by their treatment at the school, the court document said. Many of them still have poor self-esteem and difficulty trusting people.“For the plaintiffs and many of the class members, it’s about holding the school to account and making the public aware of child abuse to the view of preventing similar things in the future,” said Loretta Merritt, one of the lawyers representing the students.In its statement of defence, lawyers for the school said students weren’t cut off from their families and denied the allegations of exorcism and light sessions, saying that while some students were occasionally subjected to “corporal punishment in the form of a paddle,” it was only for the most serious breaches.The statement of defence says most students had a great experience at Grenville, which shut down in 2007.“Most certainly there would have been students over the years who experienced unhappiness from time to time at Grenville or who felt anxious or perceived that they were suffering humiliation. These, however, are ordinary human feelings,” the statement reads.“They were not the product of any negligent or deliberate infliction of mental suffering on the part of the plaintiffs.” Geoffrey Adair, a lawyer for the defendants, said the difference between students’ experiences is practically irreconcilable.“Some people present a picture of Grenville as a very rigid, harsh, abusive culture. Others think Grenville was an amazingly positive experience,” he said. “A court is going to have to decide which vision, if you will, or which view, is the fact and which is fiction.”The statement of defence also notes the amount of time that had elapsed since the alleged abuse.At the time that the lawsuit was initially filed in 2008, there was a time limit on reporting allegations of child abuse. Eight years later, while the case was inching forward in the legal system, Ontario changed its laws to eliminate the limit in those cases.But Adair notes that the amount of time that’s passed does still have an effect on the case — some things, such as corporal punishment, were more acceptable forty years ago than they are now.The courts, he noted, must look at the standards at the time.The initial class action also named the Anglican Diocese of Ontario as a defendant, because Farnsworth and Haig were ordained Anglican ministers and the school presented itself as Anglican.The diocese argued that in spite of those facts, the school was not officially affiliated with the religious institution, and the case against it was dropped.The trial is set to begin Monday if no settlement is reached by then.Nicole Thompson, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Mens soccer battles to draw against Bowling Green

Freshman defender Craig Zahour (2) controls the ball during a match against IPFW Aug. 20, at Jesse Owens Memorial Field. OSU won, 2-0.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorThe Ohio State men’s soccer team earned its first draw of the season at Bowling Green in front of more than 3,000 fans over the weekend.The game was the first of four straight in-state matchups for the Buckeyes, who are now 2-2-1 for the season, while BGSU sits at 1-2-2.“With an in-state opponent, and us being OSU, teams are always going to want to come at you,” OSU junior goalkeeper Alex Ivanov said. “(Bowling Green) had lots of fans come out and they used the (fans) to their advantage.”The match went into double overtime before ending in a 0-0 tie. OSU’s best chance to score came in the last minute of regulation when junior midfielder Alec Lowell took a shot off a free kick from nearly 25 yards out, but the shot was deflected out of bounds. With less than a minute left on the clock, the Buckeyes had two chances to score off corner kicks, but failed to convert on either.Lowell said it was good to come out of the game with a point, regardless of the score.“It was really good to get a point out of a big away game versus an in-state rival with over 3,000 fans,” Lowell said. “Going into next week we are going to have to come out strong in our own house.”The Falcons outshot the Buckeyes 35-12 but only nine of BGSU shots were on goal, compared to two for the Buckeyes. Lowell led the Buckeyes with three shots and Ivanov recorded eight saves. It was the fifth straight game in which Ivanov has recorded six or more saves.“I will always do as much as I can to keep the team in it,” Ivanov said. “We have had some great team defending as well.”The Buckeyes are set to return to Columbus when they host Wright State Tuesday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium at 7 p.m. OSU is then scheduled to take on Dayton in Columbus Friday at 7:30 p.m.Senior defender and captain Sage Gardner said he is looking forward to playing in Columbus again and said the team will have to continue to improve.“It feels like it has been a while since we’ve played at home,” Gardner said. “We learned to start stronger and more aggressive and to surpass the opponent’s mentality. We did better the last game after we got more assertive.” read more

Debt is only half of Greeces problem

first_imgThe International Monetary Fund believes a plan for bondholders to shoulder some of the cost of a second bailout for Greece won’t revive the country’s economy without measures to bolster the country’s competitiveness. ‘It’s important to understand what problems Greece is facing: the public debt problem and the competitiveness problem,” Olivier Blanchard, the fund’s chief economist, said at a news conference in Washington. “In order to get out of the hole it has to solve both problems.” European finance ministers at their meeting in Brussels told Greek officials to go back to the negotiating table with bondholders, saying the country should exchange existing securities for new ones at lower interest rates than what creditors are offering. At the same time, they said Greece’s commitment to fiscal and structural reforms needed to be strengthened if the country is to receive 130 billion euros ($169 billion) in public funds under a second package. “It was decided that the banks, private lenders, would also take losses,” IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde told France 2 television on Tuesday in Paris. “Now we have to know how much. The time has come to get serious.”Lagarde said she has no doubt that political will existed for an agreement, though it had to be coordinated and required an effort “on the part of everyone, notably the banks.” The IMF “has made it clear” that it thinks Greek debt as a percentage of gross domestic product shouldn’t exceed 120 percent by 2020, according to Blanchard, adding that it is the result the debt swap negotiations needed to achieve. The Washington-based IMF cut its forecast for global growth this week and warned that the European debt crisis threatens to derail the world economy. They forecast that the 17-nation eurozone will slip into mild recession in 2012, cutting the increase in global output from 3.25 per cent this year instead of the original forecast of 4 per cent.

Supermarket sector sees turnover decline in Greece

first_imgGreece’s supermarket and cash and carry sector has declined at an annual rate of 3.7 percent over the last four years, hit – albeit to a lesser degree than other domains in the country’s economy – by the financial crisis and a drop in demand, according to an annual survey conducted by ICAP.The crisis started to impact on the sector in 2010, when 20 years of consecutive growth came to an end, with a 1.4 percent annual drop in turnover. From 2011 to 2014, the yearly decline was three or four times that rate, reaching just over 11 billion euros last year.Sector professionals say that the greatest impact has been on sales at hypermarkets, which sell a multitude of products other than food and basic commodities, offering apparel, electrical and electronic goods etc.The economic crisis has favored concentration in the sector, the survey stressed, as evident since 2011 with company shutdowns, departures and acquisitions, a trend that has been growing in recent months. This has resulted in the constant growth of the store networks of the sector’s biggest chains.Small and medium-sized enterprises in the domain are facing sustainability problems, while many have been forced to shut loss-making outlets or even close down altogether, resulting in the redistribution of their market share between the larger main players. Furthermore the biggest chains have economies of scale, which gives them an advantage over smaller enterprises and contributes in the increase in concentration.The ICAP data showed that the 11 biggest companies in the sector (based on turnover) have 2,080 stores across the country, with 37.2 percent of them being in Attica.Source: Kathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Le Vietnam inquiet dune contamination à larsenic

first_imgLe Vietnam inquiet d’une contamination à l’arsenicAprès le Bangladesh, le Vietnam est lui aussi touché par une contamination à l’arsenic via l’eau en provenance du Fleuve rouge.Le Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences publie une étude qui met en évidence la contamination à l’arsenic du Fleuve rouge à côté duquel vivent plusieurs millions de Vietnamiens. L’eau contient en effet un taux cinq fois supérieur à 10 microgrammes par litre, le seuil maximal que l’OMS a fixé. Cette consommation d’arsenic en grande quantité entraîne des cancers de la peau, des poumons, de la vessie ou du rein tout provoquant des modifications de la pigmentation et de l’épaisseur de la peau.Découverte en 1998, la pollution à l’arsenic a entraîné la mise en place d’une étude de plus grande envergure qui a débuté en 2005. Elle a permis de mesurer les quantités de différents composés chimiques contenus dans l’eau de consommation : l’arsenic, le manganèse, le fer, le phosphate et le sélénium.L’étude révèle que 27% des puits qui servent à alimenter en eau de boisson les Vietnamiens vivant aux abords du Fleuve rouge contiennent des taux d’arsenic et de manganèse dangereux et se révélant extrêmement nocifs notamment pour le développement neurologique des enfants.À lire aussiCe corail préfère manger du plastique plutôt que de sa nourriture habituelleSciences et Avenir rappelle que l’arsenic est présent naturellement dans les eaux souterraines qui circulent en Asie du sud-est. L’empoisonnement vient du fait que l’eau destinée à la consommation provient de puits peu profonds pompant une eau riche en arsenic. Il suffirait d’aller pomper plus profondément pour obtenir une eau saine.Malheureusement, l’arsenic a fini par filtrer et atteindre même ces poches d’eau jusque-là préservées. Les scientifiques cherchent donc à mettre en place des centrales de retraitement de l’eau, dernière solution à ce problème de santé publique.Le 19 janvier 2011 à 11:04 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Press Talk: The good, the bad, the ugly

first_img Bridge talk builds careers. Not bridges. Hey, it ain’t “Don’t Do Stupid Stuff,” but it does have some potential for a coffee mug. Let me explain.I’m pretty sure long before Fort Vancouver was a real fort, there was chatter about how to get across that monster of a river, known today as the Columbia. Some guy promised two canoes in every driveway and even though he probably didn’t deliver, he was named grand poobah for life, because he said what we wanted to hear.Today, the on-and-off harangue on how to improve our commuting experience back and forth to Oregon is back on again. Our state Legislature is at the beginning of doing its talking thing again which — if history is any indication — will amount to absolutely nothing. And the only thing there has been more of than politicians pontificating on all things bridge, is journalists writing about politicians pontificating on all things bridge. So I had to ask myself, have I got anything — anything — worth a buck? Don’t answer that too quickly! Heck, let’s give it a try.How about, even though we can’t seem to get a bridge built, all the talking we do about it has built a few careers. Some of those careers are good, some are bad and some are ugly. Yeah, that’s the ticket. So let’s get started. Lou Brancaccio is The Columbian’s editor emeritus.
