NDP MPs voice support for Singh play down tensions between leader and

first_imgOTTAWA – Federal New Democrat MPs closed ranks around embattled leader Jagmeet Singh on Wednesday as they blamed a steep learning curve for many of the trials and tribulations that he has experienced since taking over the party last fall.But with the next federal election looming, the question hovering over Singh is whether he can find his footing — and get his caucus on his side — in time.The most recent challenge to Singh’s leadership came this week after several caucus members publicly chastised him for punishing veteran MP David Christopherson, who broke ranks with his party to support a Conservative motion.The motion condemned the Liberal government’s new policy forcing groups that apply for funding under the Canada Summer Jobs program to affirm, among other things, their respect for a woman’s right to an abortion.While a longtime supporter of a woman’s right to choose, Christopherson said he couldn’t support what he believes is an unconstitutional policy that requires churches and other religious groups to disavow their beliefs to qualify for funding.Singh nonetheless removed Christopherson as vice-chair of the powerful procedures and House affairs committee — a move criticized by caucus members, some of whom took the unusual step of complaining in public.After Singh recanted his decision late Tuesday by announcing that Christopherson had been reinstated, NDP MPs sought to put the episode behind them on Wednesday.Among them was former leadership contender Charlie Angus, who had told the Globe and Mail on Tuesday that the decision to punish Christopherson had stunned caucus members and showed “a lack of respect.”In an interview with The Canadian Press on Wednesday, Angus welcomed Christopherson’s reinstatement, even as he and others played down talk of a rift between Singh and his MPs.“Many members of caucus voted for him in the leadership race, so he’s got a strong base and we’re a pretty solid caucus,” Angus said. “With Dave Christopherson back on track, we can do the business that we need to do with Jagmeet as leader.”Christopherson similarly emphasized in a statement that Singh has “shown himself to be a strong leader,” and that he has “complete trust in his leadership.”Yet the Christopherson episode was only the latest in a string of controversies for Singh, several of which have involved disagreements with — and criticism from — his own caucus.Singh faced a backlash last week for not taking a stronger stance against the use of violence by Sikh separatists and backtracked last year after saying a judge who speaks an Indigenous language but not French should be eligible for the Supreme Court.Angus also complained in January about the party putting too much emphasis on social media rather than talking to the grassroots — a comment that coincided with the party plastering pictures of Singh’s engagement to girlfriend Gurkiran Kaur on Twitter.Some observers have suggested that Singh, who doesn’t have a seat in the House of Commons and has instead spent much of his time as leader crisscrossing the country, doesn’t spend enough time in Ottawa.They argue that aside from being away from the cameras, which makes it more difficult to get national attention, the distance has created a disconnect between Singh and the caucus.NDP parliamentary leader Guy Caron appeared to acknowledge as much, saying the party is looking at whether Singh needs to have a “larger presence” in the capital.Singh is also still without a director of communications, despite having been in leader for nearly six months, while some have questioned the experience — or lack thereof — of his leadership team.But Caron and others chalked up Singh’s challenges as part of a natural learning curve that many new leaders — including Jack Layton and Tom Mulcair — faced when taking over a party.“With every leader I’ve worked with, I’ve seen moments that come up like this week,” said longtime B.C. MP Peter Julian.“Generally, what I’m most interested in is how we’re moving forward, and we’re getting quite a head of steam in a number of areas. Which means to me that we’ve got to just redouble our efforts to get ready for 2019.”Former NDP national director Karl Belanger nonetheless said that it is imperative Singh and his MPs resolve their issues now if they want to have any hope next year.“As we get closer to the election,” he said, “people are eager to have a sense of where the party’s going and they hope that the kind of problems that we’ve seen in the past few weeks will not become a common occurrence.”— Follow @leeberthiaume on Twitter.last_img read more

Corporate dealmaking dips in 1Q on trade economy fears

Lingering trade spats and a fears of a global economic slowdown stunted corporate deal-making worldwide during the first quarter.Large, international deals that drove the acquisitions market for years nearly disappeared, pushing deal values down by 15% from a year ago. Deal-making in Europe plunged to its lowest level in nearly seven years. Deal values in Asia plunged as China faced a damaging trade war with the U.S. and an economic slowdown.Companies eased off from deal-making amid concerns that the global economy was on shaky ground. Stocks nosedived during the fourth quarter, amid fears of a potential recession. The U.S. remained mired in a trade war with China that only worsened an economic slump in that nation. Economies in Europe also skidded and the eventual impact of Britain’s exit from the European Union remains uncertain.The cloudy picture left companies hesitant to move ahead with new mergers and acquisitions, a hesitancy that carried over to the first quarter in most countries.The U.S. managed to buck the trend, as central banks took steps to allay fears about a sharp global slowdown. Companies rode a recovery in the U.S. stock market wave while sitting on lots of extra money from corporate tax cuts. Health care remained the hottest sector for deals. Bristol-Myers Squibb opened the first quarter with a bang, offering $77 billion for Celgene.Interest rates in the U.S. remained relatively low and the nation’s economy experienced stronger growth than the rest of the world.“You weren’t seeing much optimism about combinations in the rest of the world as you were in the U.S.,” Warne said.Companies might now have a better sense of the global economy’s direction after pausing during the first quarter, she said. Many of those companies, still sitting on lots of cash, are looking for other ways to boost earnings over time.The overall slowdown in deals during the first quarter could be a prelude to a spike in deals for the rest of 2019, some experts say. Several large deals have already been announced in the second quarter. Chevron is buying Anadarko Petroleum for $33 billion. Publicis Groupe is buying Epsilon for $4.4 billion.“Pockets of consolidation in some particularly hot sectors, vigorous private equity activity and a healthy domestic deal flow in the U.S. should give hope to dealmakers for the rest of 2019,” said Beranger Guille, global editorial analytics director at MergerMarket.A survey earlier this year by Deloitte found that an increasing number of executives and leaders expect the number of closed deals to rise in 2019, with strong sentiment that the values of those deals will be greater than in 2018. Last year’s tax benefit is still a big factor in driving deals, along with a push by many companies to expand their footprint geographically.Damian J. Troise, The Associated Press read more

Security Council expands mandate of UN peacekeeping force in Abyei

14 December 2011The Security Council today expanded the mandate of the United Nations peacekeeping force for the Abyei area, which is contested by South Sudan and Sudan, to include, among other tasks, assisting the two parties to abide by and implement their agreements on the demilitarization of the area. In a resolution, the Council decided that the UN Interim Security Force for Abyei (UNISFA) will support the two sides in the operational activities of the Joint Border Verification and Monitoring Mechanism (JBVMM), including carrying out verifications, investigations, monitoring, arbitrations, liaison coordinating, reporting, information exchange, patrols and security.UNISFA will also assist and advise the JBVMM in its overall planning and verification of the implementation of the so-called joint position paper on border security that was agreed upon in May.The mission will be charged with assisting the JBVMM to maintain the geographical and mapping references to be used for the monitoring of the implementation the Agreement on Border Security and the Joint Political and Security Mechanism reached on 29 June.The Council also authorized UNISFA to facilitate liaison between the parties, support them, when requested, in developing effective bilateral management mechanisms along the border and help them to build mutual trust. It requested South Sudan and Sudan to fully implement their commitments under their previous agreements on Abyei.The Council called upon Member States, particularly Sudan and South Sudan, “to ensure the free, unhindered and expeditious movement to and from Abyei and throughout the Safe Demilitarized Border Zone of all personnel, as well as equipment, provisions, supplies and other goods, including vehicles, aircraft and spare parts, which are for the exclusive and official use of UNISFA.”UNISFA’s additional tasks shall be carried out within its authorized capabilities and within an expanded operational area that includes the Safe Demilitarized Border Zone, JBVMM headquarters, sector headquarters and team sites, according to the resolution.The 15-member UN body also urged Sudan and South Sudan to cooperate fully with each other and provide full support to UNISFA, enabling it to fully implement its mandate, and requested the Secretary-General to keep it informed of progress in implementing UNISFA’S additional tasks and to bring to its attention any serious violations of agreements.The Council established UNISFA on 27 June for an initial six months following an outbreak of violence after Sudanese troops took control of the area, displacing tens of thousands of people in the weeks before South Sudan became independent after seceding from Sudan.Last week, the Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations, Hervé Ladsous, told the Council that the security situation in Abyei remains fragile, with both South Sudan and Sudan failing to withdraw their armed forces as agreed under the demilitarization pact reached in June. read more

Several Sri Lankan immigrants entered the UK illegally

Arulseeli Sritharan claims she was too frightened to travel through the country’s capital on her own passport for fear of being arrested by officials looking for her fiance, who is an ex-rebel fighter.Now she is claiming asylum and hopes eventually to be allowed to work in Britain.She said: “I can’t go back because I will be killed. There are so many people back home like me. I will learn English and do charity work and do whatever I can for this country.” “I would probably say 80 to 85% of people arriving from Sri Lanka are coming on fake passports,” she said. “The only means is through fake passports. It’s big business and a risky business.” “There’s a whole workforce. They want to contribute and fear for their life and are grateful to Britain if they are here. So they want to contribute back.”We spoke to a Sri Lankan woman in the temple who came to Britain on a fake passport last summer. She said she bought it through an agent because she feared for her life. Thevarajah and Kaly live in the UK and have both been denied asylum. Thevarajah came nearly 20 years ago but can only support his family through odd jobs getting cash in hand.They live in a single room where they eat, sleep and spend all their time.The couple have two children aged eight and six who were born in Britain. The children say they are too embarrassed to bring school friends home because their lives are so different. A Sri Lankan community leader has told Sky News the vast majority of illegal immigrants arriving in Britain from the country are coming on fake passports.Ambihai Seevaratnam, who works in human rights and is chairperson of Croydon temple in south London, says it has become much more difficult to get visas to come to the UK and that Tamils fleeing Sri Lanka are turning to agents to buy fake Sri Lankan passports and fake visas. Others who have lost their asylum applications hope Brexit could open up new opportunities for them. Ms Seevaratnam believes that Brexit could provide job opportunities for the hundreds or even thousands who are coming on fake passports from Sri Lanka each year. All four members of the family sleep on a door covered with blankets on the floor.They hope that after years of living in the shadows Brexit might offer a way into society for them, though there’s no evidence this is the case.While Thevarajah and Kaly are able to access healthcare through their old asylum documents Kaly says she would like to go to college to study and hopes one day to work in child care.Kaly said: “We cook and sleep and do everything in one room. The children talk about their friends and their lifestyle. My son doesn’t want to be ashamed.” read more

Hasina emphasises patriotism Kamal democracy Fakhrul Khaleda release

first_imgTerming children and juveniles as future leaders, prime minister Sheikh Hasina on Tuesday urged them to be imbued with the spirit of patriotism and the liberation war to ensure the country’s forward march.“We want you (children) will build Bangladesh as a developed and prosperous country,” she told a reception to mark the Independence Day.The same day, opposition Jatiya Oikya Front leader Kamal Hossain emphasised a united movement of people to restore their rights and democracy in the country.Principal opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party, a key component of the Front as well, called upon the people to take a fresh vow to free party chairperson Khaleda Zia from jail through a movement, apart from restoration of democracy.The main opposition has criticised the ruling camp for returning to power by means of ‘intimidation and rigging’ in the 30 December 2018 election won by the Awami League and its allies.Talks of development in focusPrime minister Sheikh Hasina said her government would fulfill Bangabandhu’s dream by establishing Bangladesh as the most peaceful, developed and prosperous country in South Asia, reports BSS.She was addressing the Independence and National Day-2019 rally of children and juveniles at Bangabandhu National Stadium in the city in the morning. The liberation war affairs ministry and Dhaka district administration jointly arranged the function.Sheikh Hasina renewed her call to parents, guardians, teachers and religious leaders to remain careful in keeping the children out of the influences of militancy, terrorism and drugs addiction.Sheikh Hasina also urged them to flourish their merit and thinking by practicing sports and games and culture alongside pursuing study.Sheikh Hasina said the government also constituted the Education Assistance Trust Fund so that the poor but meritorious students get scope for study.Earlier, the national anthem was performed when the prime minister arrived at the reception dais of Bangabandhu National Stadium at 8am.Kamal for restoring people’s rightsJatiya Oikya Front convener Kamal Hossain on Tuesday stressed the need for a united movement of people for the restoration of their rights and a democratic governing system.”We’ve been on a movement and we must continue it uniting people to get rid of the current situation of the country and restore people’s rights,” he said.Kamal came up with the remarks while talking to reporters after paying homage to the liberation war martyrs at Savar National Mausoleum, marking the 49th Independence Day, reports UNB.Kamal, also the president of Gono Forum, said the nation got the independence and constitution, and introduced a democratic governing system through movements. “But we must consolidate the unity of people and carry out a movement to make the democratic governing system functional.”As per the constitution, he said, people are the owners of all power and the state. “Those who deprived people of their ownership of the country they’ve committed an anti-constitutional and anti-liberation act. We’ll have to carry out a united movement so that no one can deprive us of our rights.”As his attention was drawn to BNP’s allegation of restoration of one-party rule by the current government, Kamal said people’s unity can resist autocracy.He also said people’s unity is the of all power. “Those who want to deprive people of such power they create divisions among people. So, we all must wage a united movement to completely get rid of the current situation.”BNP emphasises release of Khaleda ZiaThe BNP urged people to take a fresh vow to restore democracy and free Khaleda Zia from jail through a movement, reports UNB.”On this great day, we call upon people to take a vow to restore democracy, uphold the goals and spirit of the Liberation War and free mother of democracy Khaleda Zia,” said BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.Talking to reporters, after paying homage to liberation war martyrs by placing wreaths together with BNP leaders and activists at Savar National Mausoleum, he also said, “We must restore democracy and ensure the release of our leader (Khaleda Zia) through a movement.”Fakhrul alleged that the Awami League government has ruined the spirit and ideals with what people had waged the liberation war in 1971.He also accused the ruling party of establishing a one-party rule almost like Baksal. “People’s all the rights, including voting one, have been snatched while they have no security of their lives.”BNP standing committee members Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain , Abdul Moyeen Khan, the BNP chairperson’s advisers Abdus Salam, BNP joint secretary general Khairul Kabir Khokon, publicity secretary Shahid Uddin Chowdhury Annie and organising secretary Shama Obaid accompanied Fakhrul at the national mausoleum.From the Savar National Mausoleum, the BNP leaders went to Zia’s Sher-e-Bangla Nagar grave and paid homage to him by placing wreaths in the morning.last_img read more

This is according to the results of a new healthcare leadership survey released by Philips Healthcare. To date, electronic medical records (EMRs) have been the most widely adopted HIT, with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) reporting EMR reimbursements totaled more than $15.1 million as of June 2013. Preparing to meet Meaningful Use Stage 2 criteria, healthcare leaders are looking to expand EMR capabilities to support and improve the quality of care by measuring clinical outcomes and sharing patient information.The survey of 142 healthcare leaders was conducted by HIMSS Media on behalf of Philips Healthcare and announced at the 2014 annual meeting of the Health Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS). It aimed to determine how providers are prioritizing technology investment and adoption to address healthcare reform initiatives. Of the 142 respondents, 85 percent represent either standalone hospitals or integrated delivery networks (IDNs). Nearly 40 percent of respondents are in C-level positions, with the predominant position being chief information office, and another 30 percent comprising IT directors and managers.”EMRs must meaningfully use the information across a hospital’s network to improve care and add value for the patient,” said Joe Frassica, vice president and chief medical information officer, patient care and monitoring solutions for Philips Healthcare. “One of the major complaints of hospital systems about their EMRs is their inability to access the data that’s incorporated into the EMR and use it for meaningful patient intervention.”According to the survey results, 53 percent of respondents selected EMR applications as garnering the lion’s share of their healthcare organization’s technology purchasing budget. Interfacing and integration applications were selected by 27 percent. Other key findings are summarized below.  Connectivity and InteroperabilityA look at the combined top two rankings for technology capabilities that are important considerations for clinical technology purchase decisions reveal a demand for interoperable solutions and EMR augmentation.When asked to identify the relative importance in choosing clinical technologies, EMR interoperability, at 44 percent, was by far the most important consideration for survey respondents.Mobile Connectivity In and Outside Traditional Care SettingsSurvey participants reported deploying their IT systems to the following entities to address healthcare reform requirements: physician offices (78 percent), ambulatory surgery centers (47 percent), diagnostic imaging centers (41 percent), urgent care centers (32 percent) and patient homes (30 percent).51 percent of respondents indicated that their healthcare organization was deploying a new EMR as a new technology to help them meet healthcare reform initiatives.59 percent and 54 percent identified clinical devices and mobility solutions, respectively, as recent acquisitions targeted to meet compliance.37 percent of respondents also confirmed their use of other solutions such as home/telehealth technologies to help them coordinate care and meet healthcare reform initiatives.The findings are titled, “The New Healthcare Enterprise: Leveraging Healthcare IT to Achieve Connected Care, Healthcare Reform.”  For more information: www.philips.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Radiology Business | August 01, 2019 Philips Completes Acquisition of Carestream Health’s HCIS Business … read more Sponsored Content | Case Study | Radiation Dose Management | August 13, 2019 The Challenge of Pediatric Radiation Dose Management Radiation dose management is central to child patient safety.

Dr Taleb Rifai receives IIPT Lifetime Achievement Award

first_imgThe International Institute for Peace through Tourism (IIPT) recently honoured seven outstanding people from the world of travel and tourism as “Global Ambassadors of Peace through Tourism” at World Travel Market (WTM), London. Dr. Taleb Rifai, Secretary-General of UNWTO, was conferred with the IIPT Lifetime Achievement Award as a “Global Man of Peace.” In his keynote address, Dr. Rifai said that for the 7th consecutive year, the growth in tourism had exceeded growth in other sectors. However, he added that tourism is far more than numbers and statistics. To travel is a basic human right. Quoting Mark Twain he said, “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness.”The 1.8 billion tourists expected to travel the world by 2030 could be 1.8 billion opportunities or 1.8 billion disasters – the choice, he said, is ours. There is no conflict between growth and sustainability, he said, because sustainability is beyond “Going Green” it’s about sustaining life on Earth. “As I come to the end of my journey as Secretary-General,” he said “the thought I would like to leave with is ‘Whatever you do, do it to make the world a better place.’”D’Amore, Founder President, IIPT, said, “IIPT is privileged and grateful to pay tribute to Dr. Taleb Rifai for his global leadership these past eight years. We have been most honoured to have Dr. Rifai grace the stage at IIPT WTM events as our featured keynote speaker over the past several years – and to have his unwavering support for IIPT initiatives in our mission to make the travel and tourism industry – the world’s first global peace industry. We look forward to a continuing relationship with him in the years ahead as we join hands in efforts to promote the transformative role of tourism in “making the world a better place.               Ajay Prakash, President, IIPT India, said, “As the UN International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development draws to a close, it’s important to accept that the work is far from complete and that we need to carry the impetus forward into the years ahead. While it’s axiomatic that peace is vital to the promotion of tourism, it is important to reiterate that tourism can be a vital force for the propagation of peace and this can happen only if the concept of Peace through Tourism forms part of the core business philosophy of the tourism industry.” Commenting on the rationale of the awards, Prakash continued, “Because tourism is so people-centric it is important to recognize and honour exceptional persons in the field who can serve as role models and inspire others to carry the baton.”The theme of the awards event was “Tourism – A Catalyst for Peace”, featuring Dr. Rifai as the Keynote Speaker. Supported by “Incredible India” and the UNWTO, this first edition of the Awards was sponsored by Cox & Kings.IIPT plans to make the “Ambassadors of Peace Through Tourism” awards an annual feature at WTM London.last_img read more
