Tribunal orders Canada again to comply with its ruling on First Nation

first_imgAPTN National NewsThe federal government continues to drag its heels on fully complying with the landmark decision of Canadian Human Rights Tribunal in January that found Ottawa discriminates against First Nation children on-reserve.The tribunal ruled for far too long the feds funded First Nation children living on-reserve less than non-Indigenous children off of reserve.It gave the government a list of areas that needed to fixed and issued a compliance order.They did so again in April.On Thursday, the tribunal did so again.“It rests on INAC and the federal government to implement the panel’s findings and orders, and to clearly communicate how it is doing so,” the tribunal said Thursday.The tribunal said it’s unclear who the feds have consulted with in the Indigenous community address the gaps.“INAC has previously acknowledged that it does not have expertise in the provision of child and family services to First Nations. Therefore, the need to consult with experts in the field, including the Caring Society, should be a priority,” the tribunal said, referring to Cindy Blackstock, executive director of First Nations Child and Family Caring Society of Canada.Blackstock, along with the Assembly of First Nations, were the ones who first brought the complaint against Ottawa about 10 years ago.Blackstock said she was happy with the latest compliance order and was scheduled to hold a media conference in Ottawa Thursday afternoon.The AFN also was happy the tribunal is keeping on the feds.“But it is disappointing to see that Canada has to be pushed to respect human rights and end discrimination against First Nations children, said National Chief Perry Bellegarde. “Canada must be more transparent and work with us a on a better system to reform the federal First Nation child welfare program that is supported by fair funding based on real needs.”The federal government is expected to release a statement later Thursday.Download (PDF, Unknown)last_img read more

Microsoft and Sony will partner on game streaming AI

As part of the agreement, the companies will jointly develop cloud solutions in Microsoft Azure, according to a release. Sony might also use Microsoft Azure for its game and content streaming services. The efforts will also include building better tools for content creators.”Sony has always been a leader in both entertainment and technology, and the collaboration we announced today builds on this history of innovation,” said Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, in a release. “Our partnership brings the power of Azure and Azure AI to Sony to deliver new gaming and entertainment experiences for customers.”Also, the companies will explore working together in the areas of semiconductors and artificial intelligence.Both Sony and Microsoft revealed new details on new gaming consoles in April, which are expected to be released next year. Sony said its next-gen console — likely called the PlayStation 5 — will be AMD-based, support high-end graphics features like ray tracing and 8K output, and switch to high-speed SSD storage. Microsoft followed with the announcement of the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition, a late-in-life addition to the Xbox One line that finally ditches the optical drive. $520 at HP DJI’s answer to GoPro’s action cameras is rugged little model that’s shockproof, dustproof and waterproof down to 11 meters. It normally runs $350, but this deal drops it to $261 when you apply promo code 19LABOR10 at checkout. Angela Lang/CNET $90 at Daily Steals via Google Express Turo is kind of like Uber meets Airbnb: You borrow someone’s car, but you do all the driving. I’ve used it many times and found it a great alternative to traditional car-rental services — in part because you get to choose exactly the vehicle you want (not just, say, “midsize”) and in part because you can often do pickup and dropoff right outside baggage claim.Between now and Sept. 1, the first 300 people to check out can get $30 off any Turo rental with promo code LDW30. $999 JBL Soundgear wearable speaker: $90 (save $160) Google Nest Hub: $59 (save $70) Sprint Formerly known as the Google Home Hub, Google’s Nest Hub packs a wealth of Google Assistant goodness into a 7-inch screen. At $59, this is within a buck of the best price we’ve seen. It lists for $129 and sells elsewhere in the $89-to-$99 range.This is one item of many available as part of eBay’s Labor Day Sale (which, at this writing, doesn’t specifically mention Labor Day, but that’s how it was pitched to us). Sarah Tew/CNET Chris Monroe/CNET DJI Osmo Action camera: $261 (save $89) The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price. What’s cooler: A snapshot of a firework exploding in front of you, or full 360-degree video of all the fireworks and all the reactions to seeing them? Oooh, ahhh, indeed. At $250, the compact Rylo dual-lens camera is selling for its lowest price yet. And for an extra $50, you can get the bundle that includes the waterproof housing.This deal runs through Sept. 3; it usually costs $500. Though not technically a Labor Day sale, it’s happening during Labor Day sale season — and it’s too good not to share. Nationwide Distributors, via Google Express, has just about the best AirPods deal we’ve seen (when you apply promo code ZBEDWZ at checkout). This is for the second-gen AirPods with the wireless charging case. Can’t imagine these will last long at this price, so if you’re interested, act fast. Comments See It I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution. An Echo Dot makes a fine match for any Fire edition TV, because you can use the latter to say things like, “Alexa, turn on the TV.” Right now, the 24-inch Insignia Fire TV Edition starts at just $100, while the 32-inch Toshiba Fire TV Editions is on sale for $130. Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free.center_img $999 Apple AirPods with Wireless Charging Case: $155 (save $45) Read the AirPods review See at Amazon Lenovo Smart Clock: $59.99 (save $20) Amazon Best laptops for college students: We’ve got an affordable laptop for every student.

Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio.

Prince William loses his temper after his exgirlfriend made this Shocking declaration

first_imgPrince William and Kate Middleton attend the Queen’s Birthday Garden Party in BerlinJENS KALAENE/AFP/Getty ImagesPrince William is a Prince with quite the temper it seems. Apparently, Prince William was far from impressed after Kate Middleton and his ex-girlfriend Carly Massy-Birch came face-to-face in an awkward encounter, a biography reveals.Apparently, one of William’s former flames was at the centre of a fiery encounter at a party attended by the royal couple.Carly Massy-Birch was reportedly William’s love interest before he fell for Kate but, even after their break-up, the two remained close as Ms. Massy-Birch lived across the road. In 2011 book “The Making of a Royal Romance” by Katie Nicholl, the royal expert claims how a game of “never have I ever” at a university party provoked a “thunderous” reaction from William.Ms. Nicholl notes that one attendee at the party recalled: “When it was Carly’s turn to play she announced, ‘I’ve never dated two people in this room,’ knowing full well that William was the only one who had because Kate was sitting next to him.”  Prince William takes the hand of his bride Catherine Middleton, now to be known as Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, followed by Prince Harry and Pippa Middleton as they walk down the aisle inside Westminster Abbey on April 29, 2011 in London, England.Getty ImagesWilliam is said to have “shot a thunderous look” at Ms. Massy-Birch before whispering under his breath: “I can’t believe you just said that.”Encounters with an ex are always an awkward affair but it seems like it could be more so when you’re a Royal. Prince William and Kate Middleton have been married for close to a decade now. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge seem very I love even after all this time. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry could learn a thing or two from the long married Royal couple. We wish the couple well.last_img read more
