Alberta hires liaison to help companies connect with Silicon Valley

first_imgEDMONTON – Alberta companies looking to gain a foothold in high-tech Silicon Valley now have a representative on the ground in California.Trade Minister Deron Bilous says the government has contracted with an Alberta firm that has a liaison in San Francisco.The liaison, Joanne Fedeyko, says the key to opening doors in California is getting face-to-face meetings, which is something she says she can provide given her experience with the tech industry in that state.The province is paying Fedeyko and Alberta investment firm JPC Corp. $900,000 over the next three years to provide the service, titled Connection Silicon Valley.Those services can be accessed for free by Alberta companies and the project will also work to bring Silicon Valley investment money to the province.The government has launched a number of initiatives to boost Alberta’s tech sector and diversify the economy, including tax credits and more dedicated spaces in post-secondary schools.“We need to do more to help Alberta innovators access the billions of potential investment dollars to commercialize and scale up,” Bilous said Thursday.“Now we have an Alberta presence on the ground in Silicon Valley.”Fedeyko said connections are critical in the ultra-competitive sales landscape.“You can imagine every economic development agency on the planet is there trying to access those companies,” said Fedeyko.She said it’s critical for start-up businesses to come down in person to hold meetings and build their networks.“I think companies should come down every six weeks if they’re looking to build a significant network,” she said.“The Valley really wants you to be there and participate.”The province has strong economic ties with California, with $1.8 billion in imports last year and more than $2 billion in exports.last_img read more

Top UN sports envoy visits Gaza

Wilfried Lemke, the Secretary-General’s Special Adviser, was able to enter the Gaza Strip through the Erez crossing, which was closed yesterday.“I am deeply touched by the plight of the people of Gaza,” Mr. Lemke said after meeting young Palestinian athletes at a sports stadium in Gaza City.“Sport and play can provide the children and youth in Gaza relief from the hardship of their daily lives and bring them hope for a better tomorrow,” he added.The Special Adviser also stopped at several locations that will host the upcoming 2009 Gaza Summer Games, organized by the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), which will kick off on 21 June.The success of UNRWA and its partners in organizing the event is a testament “to their remarkable commitment and dedication,” he said, adding that “not only are the Games a source of joy and fun for the children, but they also contain a crucial income-generating component that makes a considerable difference in the current alarming lack of professional opportunities for the people of Gaza.”Over 250,000 children will take part in a series of activities during the eight-week Games in hundreds of different locations across the Strip.Last Friday, Mr. Lemke met with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, and the two men discussed the positive and lasting benefits of sport for local populations.Tomorrow, he will hold talks with UNRWA Commissioner-General Karen AbuZayd in Amman Jordan, where he will also visit a youth training camp, wrapping up a 10-day visit to the region which also took him to Qatar and Bahrain. 8 June 2009The United Nations envoy tasked with promoting sport for development visited Gaza today to explore ways to improve the daily lives of children and youth. read more

Alberta Securities Commission levies 54 million in fines in massive fraud

CALGARY – An Alberta Securities Commission panel has slapped fines totalling nearly $54 million on three Calgary businessmen and the companies they led — the largest financial penalty levied by the market watchdog in any one case.“All of the respondents were involved in perpetrating a systemic massive fraud on Alberta and other investors, involving a complicated web of domestic and offshore corporate and other entities, bank accounts and offerings,” the commission said in a release Friday.“Investment fraud is reprehensible and completely unacceptable capital-market misconduct; instances of fraud in the capital market severely threaten the public’s confidence and sense of fairness in the whole of our capital market.”The case centres around a now-defunct company called Arbour Energy, which the ASC says illegally raised $45.5 million from investors.Arbour was led by Dennis Morice, who according to the ASC decision, considered himself a “bit player” and “cog” in a scheme led by Milowe Brost and Gary Sorenson — two men charged in a separate high-profile alleged Ponzi scheme in 2009.Morice faces the smallest penalty of the three men — a $150,000 fine, an order to pay $50,000 to cover the cost of the investigation and hearing and a variety of bans.Arbour itself faces no financial penalties, but it’s been barred from trading in and purchasing securities, among other things.In its decision, the ASC said Brost’s misconduct was “the most egregious” of the three men. Brost led the The Institute For Financial Learning, which he claimed was an “information club” but the ASC contends was really used to sell investors stock in Arbour and other entities connected to Brost.Brost has been fined $3 million and ordered to pay $85,000 in costs — the second-highest fine against an individual in ASC history.IFFL must pay back $10 million of the funds it gained from the fraud and pay $85,000 in costs.“We conclude that Brost has not recognized the seriousness of his misconduct and the devastating consequences that he caused to Alberta and other investors. These circumstances heighten the need for severe sanction,” the ASC panel said in its decision.Sorenson led a private Alberta junior mining company called Merendon, which the ASC said was a “participant in — and a significant beneficiary of — a massive complex securities fraud.”The ASC said Merendon was used as a vehicle to receive and disburse investor money.“Clearly his was egregious behaviour, although not to the same extent as Brost’s and IFFL’s misconduct — Sorenson did not have the same direct contact with investors as did Brost and IFFL and was not found to have contravened multiple provisions of Alberta securities laws.”Sorenson has been fined $2 million and has been ordered to pay $70,000 in costs. Merendon must pay the $38.6 million it made from the fraud to the ASC and $70,000 in costs.In a separate case, Brost and Sorenson were arrested in 2009 for what police have called “the largest Ponzi-type scheme” in Canadian history. Investigators have said investors around the world were bilked out of $400 million. by News Staff Posted Sep 28, 2012 5:54 pm MDT Alberta Securities Commission levies $54 million in fines in ‘massive’ fraud AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

UN human rights office concerned by reports of ongoing violations in Venezuela

According to the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), national and international human rights organizations have recently published reports of violations, including purported attacks by security forces and armed groups on university premises and violent detentions of young people who are sometimes cut off from lawyers and families. “Given the seriousness of these latest reports, we urge the Venezuelan authorities to undertake prompt investigations into these allegations and to ensure that those found responsible are brought to justice,” OHCHR spokesperson, Rupert Colville, told journalists in Geneva. He underscored that the Office is prepared to assist those efforts.National human rights organizations estimate that more than 3,120 people were detained between February and May 2014. While most were detained for only short periods, the Attorney-General has confirmed that 174 individuals remain in detention, including 17 university students. In addition, since mid-February, national organizations counted at least 51 attacks on university premises, by security forces and by groups of armed civilians. “The High Commissioner has on several occasions urged the authorities to respect the rights to peaceful demonstration and assembly,” the spokesperson said on behalf of Navi Pillay. “She has also unequivocally condemned all violence by all sides, including the excessive use of force by security officials.”Mr. Colville also renewed calls on the Government of Venezuela to accept all pending visit requests by UN independent human rights experts. read more

UNbacked conference adopts measures to tackle threats to migratory waterbirds

The 6th Meeting of the Parties to the Agreement on the Conservation of African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbirds, which is administered by the UN Environment Programed (UNEP) and which wrapped up this past weekend in Bonn, addressed the challenges of migratory waterbirds such as storks, ducks, geese and the African Penguin, which are especially vulnerable along their often long migration routes across Africa and Eurasia.“[The Agreement] forms a bridge between Eurasia and Africa, which is indispensable for the conservation of transcontinental migrants,” Jacques Trouvilliez, Executive Secretary of Agreement, said in a news release, adding that “actions are based not only on the best scientific expertise but also on reconciling human well-being with biodiversity conservation.”For the first time in Agreement’s history, it has adopted an action plan for nine species of seabirds, involving Angola, Namibia and South Africa. Action plans for six priority species have also been adopted. The endangered Ugandan Grey Crowned Crane, among which, has suffered a 4/5 decline in the past half century.As a result, countries have agreed to launch and complement a network of marine protected areas, pledged to support the outcomes of the UN Environment Assembly (UNEA1) on marine debris, and of the UN Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) to comply with regulations to protect seabirds. Six priority species, facing some common threats caused by illegal hunting and wildlife trade, habitat loss, ocean pollution, with half of them only occur in Africa, have also been highlighted in the conference and reflected in the target plans. One action plan specifically aims to reverse these endangered populations decline by reducing the mortality rate of adult birds and increasing breeding success.Applauding the resolutions, one African delegate said that these actions “link to improving the livelihoods of people,” with another African expert stressing that “seabirds are sentinels of ocean health and some are signalling distress.”The Bonn meeting further discussed the impact of renewable energy on waterbirds and noted its harm to migratory waterbirds, if not properly installed. Windfarms and hydropower plants located along major migration routes, for example, can have lethal effects. Bycatch and depletion of prey through fisheries, invasive land species, ingestion of microplastics, climate change, among others, are main threats to the seabirds, according to the news release. The 6th Session of the Meeting of the Parties to the Agreement on the Conservation of African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbirds (AEWA MOP6) was held from 9 to 14 November 2015 in Bonn, Germany. Over 200 delegates from party states, observer states, intergovernmental and nongovernmental organizations attended the conference.As the only inter-governmental treaty administered by UNEP, AEWA is dedicated to the conservation and sustainable use of migratory waterbirds and their habitats throughout their range. 2015 also marks its 20th Anniversary. read more

Global problems need global solutions UN officials tell ministers at development forum

“Solidarity and working together is more important than ever,” Frederick Musiiwa Makamure Shava, the President of the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), told the opening of the high-level segment of the Council’s 2017 session, which coincides with the three-day ministerial meeting of the High-Level Political Forum (HLPF). He noted that more than 767 million people lived in extreme poverty, according to 2013 figures cited by the UN. In addition, inequalities remain deep, conflicts and terrorism threaten humanity, and global temperatures are on the rise.“Multilateralism is based on the recognition that we cannot overcome these – and other – global challenges in isolation,” Mr. Shava underscored. “Collective support for the poor and most vulnerable is in the interest of all of us.”Also speaking at the opening, Secretary-General António Guterres noted the interlinkages between sustainable and inclusive development, conflict prevention and natural disaster preparedness. One of the main stressors on the world, he said, is climate change, impacting global megatrends – such as population growth, climate change, food insecurity, water scarcity, and chaotic urbanization in certain parts of the world.He urged the more than 70 ministers and other senior government officials participating in the Forum to recommit to the Paris Agreement and its implementation: “This is something that I believe is very important not only because of its absolute need for mankind and the future of the planet but because it is also the right and smart thing to do.” In his speech, Mr. Guterres also urged developed countries to abide by their commitments in relation to official development aid, while at the same time noting that this is not enough to fund the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). “We need to create conditions to help States be able to mobilise more their own resources,” he said, citing the need for tax reforms and fighting money laundering and the illicit flows of capital. This year’s meeting, the second since the adoption of the new development agenda in 2015, is on the theme of ‘Eradicating poverty and promoting prosperity in a changing world.’ In addition to the high-level discussions, this year’s Forum, which began on 10 July and will run through Wednesday, includes discussions on the challenges and gaps in reaching the development agenda in 44 countries that volunteered to give progress reports, and more than 120 side events related to the SDGs.To achieve the Goals, the “essential ingredient is partnership,” said Peter Thomson, President of the 71st session of the General Assembly, at the opening of the 2017 Partnership Exchange, which is being held as part of the Forum.Mr. Thomson urged “effective collaboration and partnerships between governments, private sector, civil society, local authorities, schools, universities and our communities.”He echoed the Secretary-General’s call for critical funding, from development assistance as well as private financing, and also highlighted collaboration in technology and innovation, and the need to raise awareness about the development agenda.“The 2030 Agenda is a new social contract for the world,” said Mr. Thomson. “As such, global consciousness must be raised to its contents, to its transformative message and to what I see as a set of individual rights and responsibilities that emerge from it.” UN Secretary-General António Guterres addresses the audience.

Microsoft is working on a 3D holographic avatar system for Skype

first_imgSkype is already the most popular VOIP and videoconferencing app in the world, but there’s plenty of room for new features. Next on the agenda: adding support for fully interactive, 3D holographic telepresence.Yes, Microsoft wants to beam your virtual self over the wire so that your video chats are that much more like actually being there. Microsoft says the goal is to project a “realistic body-double…that gives the remote worker a true seat at the table.” The avatar would be able to scan the room visually, turn and have a sidebar with a neighbor, and, who knows, perhaps even dish out a ghostly high-five.The company has posted a new job listing for a software developer that can help lead the project. Unsurprisingly, experience with Windows RT and Windows 8 are key, and Lync and Skype development chops are a definite bonus, too.The ad also notes that this particular position will be responsible for “productizing ideas and code from Microsoft Research.” That’s an important mention, because it hints that this effort will be based on the Viewport project.Microsoft Research announced Viewport last April. The goal was to create a shared virtual environment for immersive telecommunication using infrared dot projection.Ultimately, the effect would be similar to what CNN demonstrated during the 2008 U.S. election when correspondent Jessica Yellin’s avatar was beamed on stage to chat with bearded bad boy Wolf Blitzer… or the innumerable long-distance face-to-face conversations you’ve seen in sci-fi movies over the years.Just think, in a few more years, you may be able to sit in on that dreadful weekly productivity meeting from the comfort of your own office — rather than having to stuff yourself into a sweaty conference room.last_img read more

They first starred together in Yash Raj Films’ Bachna Ae Haseeno (2008).To mark the six years of the release of Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Deepika posted a dance video that shows the two shaking a leg on a popular song from the film, Balam Pichkari.

Mortal Kombat 11 Story Trailer Goes Back To The Future

first_img Trade In Your Nintendo Switch For a Better Battery (With a Catch)Get Used to ‘Fortnite’s’ Powerful Mech Suits Stay on target NetherRealm Studios has built up a reputation for being best in class when it comes to single-player story modes in fighting games. Yeah Mortal Kombat is just about colorful ninjas killing each, but it’s presented with such cinematic production value and seamless integration of of gameplay that it puts competitors to shame. So while we’re pretty stoked to check out the new fighting gameplay mechanics of Mortal Kombat 11, we’re equally excited to see how its plot wraps up the reboot trilogy.The answer? Time travel. See for yourself in this new story trailer.When Mortal Kombat rebooted in 2011 under its new WB masters, the plot itself reflected this redo. The events of Mortal Kombat 2011 effectively created a new timeline only Raiden was aware of, hopefully to prevent to game’s roster from becoming that bloated with dumb characters again. At the time this just felt like an excuse to do a remixed retelling of the original Mortal Kombat games and go forwarded afresh from there. The sequel Mortal Kombat X featured some elements from Mortal Kombat 4, like villain Shinnok, but it was mostly its own thing.AdChoices广告However, Mortal Kombat 11 seems to deal with the consequences of these ongoing time travel shenanigans. As the final boss of the game, time goddess Kronika wants to rewind history to undo Raiden’s now morally ambiguous meddling. To stop the heroes of Earthrealm she recruits a resurrected Shao Kahn to lead Outworld armies in exchange for rewards in the new new timeline. Cypher in The Matrix basically.Fortunately for fans of Mortal Kombat history, all this back to the future nonsense is also the in-game excuse for all sorts of different versions of new and old characters to appear from across the multiverse. Young Johnny Cage asks for a jetpack. Living Scorpion fights Zombie Scorpion. It looks like we see a Raiden who’s less of a jerk. And this trailer confirms some returning playable characters like evil cowboy Erron Black and kombat kids Cassie Cage and Jacqui Briggs.Time travel stories are notorious for being huge messes. But what is Mortal Kombat if not a huge, fun, bloody mess? Set your clocks for Mortal Kombat 11, launching April 23 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. Pre-order for beta access later this month. And for more on fighting games check out this year’s EVO lineup and read our exhaustive history of the genre.last_img read more
