Winter Fishing Seasons Set to Open

first_imgOn Jan. 1, 2007, Nova Scotia anglers can head to selected lakes and streams across the province to enjoy winter fishing. “In addition to being a healthy outdoor activity, winter fishing offers some excellent opportunities for both experienced and beginner anglers,” said Ron Chisholm, Minister of Fisheries and Aquaculture. “For those who love the outdoors, fishing is an ideal winter sport.” With interest growing in the winter sport fishery, the Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture will open limited winter seasons for stocked rainbow trout, chain pickerel and white and yellow perch. “Winter angling offers a unique outdoor experience, but we want to ensure everyone enjoys it safely,” said Mr. Chisholm. “I encourage all anglers to use caution during the winter fishery, whether they are fishing from shore, in boats or through the ice.” Anglers need a 2006 general fishing licence, which can be purchased at Department of Natural Resources offices. They are valid until March 31, 2007. The Bras d’Or Lakes are open for winter angling of rainbow trout from Jan. 1 to March 31, with a bag limit of two fish per day. Five areas of the Bras d’Or Lakes are closed to all angling to protect brook trout and Atlantic salmon. They include the areas above the Baddeck River Bridge on Highway 105 (including Cains Pond); inside the East Bay sandbar; above Crowdis Bridge in River Denys Basin; above Black River Bridge in Dundee; and above Mackenzie Brook bridge near the south side of River Denys. Several other lakes will reopen this winter for rainbow trout fishing: Cameron and Gillis lakes, Antigonish County; Angevine Lake, Cumberland County; Albro Lake, Halifax Regional Municipality; Gairloch Lake, Pictou County; Goose Harbour Lake, Guysborough County; Sucker Lake, Lunenburg County; Levers Lake and No. 20 Dam, Cape Breton County; Hidden Hills Lake, Queens County and Everitts Lake, Digby County. The season on these lakes runs from Jan. 1 to March 31 with a bag limit two fish per day. In addition, Meadow Pond, Hants County and Silver and Sunken lakes, Kings County, will be open for rainbow trout from Jan. 1 to Feb. 28. The bag limit is two fish per day. Anglers who enjoy fishing chain pickerel can do so in Digby County on the Meteghan River, including all lakes and tributaries and on the Annis River and Kiack Brook (near Belleville South) in Yarmouth County, including all lakes and tributaries.

Overprotective deer attack two dogs and their owners near Victoria

first_imgSAANICH, B.C. – Aggressive deer are being blamed for two separate attacks on dogs and their owners in Saanich, B.C.Police say both incidents happened Sunday near wooded areas close to the University of Victoria.Romeo Strasbourg said he was walking his dog when a doe attacked and would not be deterred by shouts or arm waving.The animal tracked him for blocks and even tried to follow him onto the porch of a house before being scared off, he added.Staff Sgt. Chris Horsley said a deer also charged into the yard of a home and repeatedly attacked the family dog before the homeowner grabbed a baseball bat and forced the deer to retreat“Deer can be very protective, especially the does, because they have just had fawns and they go into a very protective mode,” he said.No people were injured in the confrontations, said Horsley, adding that anyone with dogs should be extremely cautious around deer at this time of year.

Specialised audiovisual presentations tollfree no helped CBSE students

first_imgNew Delhi: Specialised audiovisual presentations on issues affecting youth, a toll-free helpline for students, an interactive voice response system – that is how the CBSE helped students counter the board exam stress this year.According to the Central Board of Secondary Education public relations officer, Rama Sharma, as many as 12,000 calls were received on the interactive voice response (IVR) service, which was a new feature introduced this year. Through the IVR system, students, parents or stakeholders can obtain pre-recorded useful information on tackling board exams which included tips for better preparation, time and stress management, frequently asked questions, along with live tele-counselling services. With the introduction of the IVR system, the board saw a considerable decline on the calls received on the toll-free helpline in the first phase of counselling, which commenced on February 1 and ended on April 4. The second phase will begin after the board results are declared. The board had roped in a total of 87 counsellors, comprising 65 from India, two special educators and 22 from foreign schools. The helpline got more calls from students as compared to parents. As many as 1,122 calls were received, with more boys (797) calling up the helpline as compared to girls (222). The helpline also received more calls from students of private schools as compared to government schools. “This has been the trend every year with more boys calling up than girls. It is difficult to understand why, but it might be because the boys are a bit distracted and usually start preparing at the last-minute causing them to stress more. Girls, on the other hand, are more organised when it comes to studies,” another official said. “Many a times, students used to call and say, ‘Please talk to my parents. They are reprimanding me and pressurising me’. Students have even called up to say they are distracted and are not able to concentrate because they had a break-up,” the other official said. Some students even had suicidal thoughts and said they were “feeling like killing themselves” and some others even said they did not want to pursue a particular stream, but were being forced to do so by their parents, he said. For the first time, a comprehensive audiovisual presentation titled ‘Knowing Children Better’ was prepared and uploaded on the CBSE’s website and other social media platforms. The presentations were on issues like tackling exam anxiety, internet addiction, substance abuse, depression. According to Sharma, the presentations received 75,000 hits on YouTube, while 92,000 views on Twitter with the presentation on tackling exam anxiety getting the maximum number views. The board had also prepared a course compendium for students. The compendium of courses after class 12 was an earnest effort of the board to facilitate students while scouting for right course choices, the board had said. The compendium featured traditional courses like engineering, chartered accountancy, medicine, while also details and eligibility criteria for unconventional subjects like how to become a detective, artificial intelligence, robotics, among others.last_img read more

Security Council extends UN mission in Burundi six more months

Video of Council meeting [24mins] In unanimously adopting resolution 1577, the Council urged all governments and parties concerned to denounce violence and incitement, condemn violations of human rights, and actively cooperate with efforts aimed at ending impunity.On 13 August, 152 Congolese were killed at the Gatumba camp in Burundi. In his latest report on the UN Operation in Burundi (ONUB), Secretary-General Kofi Annan noted that extensive investigation has yielded no clear evidence of who organized and carried out the massacre.The Council said it was deeply troubled by the fact that a faction of the Forces nationals de liberation, known as Palipehutu-FNL, had claimed responsibility for the Gatumba massacre and expressed its intention to consider measures that might be taken against individuals who threaten peace and national reconciliation in Burundi.At the same time, the Council requested ONUB, along with the UN Organization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUC), to continue to assist local authorities to investigate the massacre and to strengthening the security of vulnerable populations.ONUB was established in May to help the people of Burundi restore peace and promote national reconciliation. With 5,525 uniformed personnel deployed in country, the mission is nearly up to its authorized strength of 5,650 military. read more

UN agency expanding camps around Mosul to cope with surge in displacement

According to the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), its newly opened Chamakor camp will help manage the up tic. “[The camp] received its first 200 residents [yesterday] and more arrivals are expected [today] and through the week.” Cécile Pouilly, a spokesperson for the UN agency, said at a media briefing today at the UN Office at Geneva (UNOG).“It is ready to immediately receive 6,600 people,” she added. The UN agency is also building two additional camps – one to the east of Mosul and the other, south – for some 39,000 people and setting up 19 tented halls in the Iraqi Government-built Hammam al-Alil, that will serve as reception centres and transit area. Ms. Pouilly also said that UNHCR is exploring expanding capacity in camps north of the city but is facing serious challenges finding suitable land to build the camps.RELATED: 15,000 children flee west Mosul over past week as battle intensifies, says UNICEFHunger and insecurity biggest reason to fleeHunger and insecurity have been cited as the key factors in the decision to flee by newly displaced families, who told the UN agency of armed groups attacking areas recently retaken by Iraqi Security Forces (ISF), causing sustained civilian casualties.“The newest arrivals are in a desperate condition, visibly traumatized, hungry and dehydrated. Many arrived without shoes and wearing soaking clothes, having walked long distances to reach safety at government checkpoints,” said the UNHCR spokesperson. “Some had left relatives behind, hoping to be reunited once they are able to find safer exit routes from west Mosul. Families recounted surviving on one meal a day – flour and water, sometimes supplemented by bread or tomato paste – over recent weeks.” Currently there are 211,572 Iraqis displaced by the fighting in Mosul, with over 50,000 added since the beginning of the latest operations in west Mosul, launched on 19 February. read more

NASA US military drop a helicopter from 30 feet in the air

first_imgIt’s one thing to crash-test a car — you just put it on a rail and send it careening forward into some obstacle. You can mimic the conditions in a real crash quite easily, and produce the cars for testing for relatively little cost. Since the crash takes place in only two dimensions, it’s easy to keep an eye on exactly what happens during the crash to pull out useful information. But a helicopter crash? That’s a bit harder to stage.It’s so difficult, in fact, that the smartypants scientists at NASA, the US military, and the Federal Aviation Administration had to spend upwards of two years preparing for a complex helicopter drop to test the safety of modern helicopter designs. The chopper was loaded with 15 sophisticated crash test dummies and other sensors, along with a bevy of high-speed cameras to let the researchers review what happened after the “crash.”To actually stage the event, they used steel cables to draw the helicopter to a height of 30 feet and let it swing down like the weight on a pendulum. Just before it hit the ground, small explosives detached the vehicle from its supports, so it would be free flying like a real crashing helicopter. The setup was designed to simulate a realistic crash trajectory, and the 45-foot military helicopter hit the ground at a slightly shallow angle while traveling just under 50 kilometers per hour.The results were mixed. The post-crash helicopter itself can be seen in the picture above, fairly intact. However, the testers say that several force-meters placed inside and in the dummy passengers showed quite a bit of damage. That’s to be expected, since the crash was calibrated to be “severe but survivable,” which seems to be exactly what it was.The FAA provided a special side-facing dummy to test the effects on passengers in different positions.Speaking of calibrating, cool as it was this test drop was really just the baseline for another drop scheduled for next year. That test will use a similar fuselage, this time equipped with new, improved technology like light-weight composite materials in the airframe. One of the main restrictions of helicopter transports like the Sea Knight used in this test is its limited range per tank, which could be offset with sufficiently light and durable new materials.The data from this and next year’s tests will be compiled to refine computer models, helping engineers design safer helicopters without having to swing them into the ground every time. The hope is that a model that’s designed well enough and loaded with enough data it will be possible to greatly reduce the casualties caused by helicopter crashes.last_img read more

Exjail deputy pleads guilty to sexual misconduct

first_imgA former Clark County corrections deputy pleaded guilty Thursday to sexually assaulting two women detained at the Clark County Jail in 2017.Christopher A. North, 31, pleaded guilty in Clark County Superior Court to second-degree custodial sexual misconduct, voyeurism and indecent exposure. He also entered an “in re Barr” plea to indecent liberties. An “in re Barr” plea allows a defendant to plead guilty to a lesser related charge he didn’t commit in order to avoid conviction for a greater offense.According to a probable cause affidavit, in March 2017, North led a woman — who was going through the jail to be transferred elsewhere — to a private room, where she could change. There, he instructed her to change into her personal clothing. While she was undressing, he opened the door, prompting her to put her top back on.Later, when she was placed in a cell with windows facing the property room, North stood in the doorway to the property room, exposed himself and began masturbating while looking at the woman, according to court records.Then, in July 2017, North brought another female inmate to a private space in the jail, where he instructed her to change. According to court records, he went to an adjacent room and watched her undress before re-entering. North told her she’d be held in the changing room for a time, while waiting for transportation. The woman was locked in the room for about two hours, according to court documents.last_img read more

Copilot deliberately crashed Germanwings plane prosecutor

first_imgRelated posts:Leaders see horror of French Alps crash as probe gathers pace Authorities recover black box in Germanwings crash that left 150 dead in French Alps Murder-suicide by plane: What drove Lubitz to do it? Germanwings co-pilot treated in past for suicidal tendencies SEYNE, France — The young co-pilot of the doomed Germanwings flight deliberately crashed the plane into the French Alps after locking his captain out of the cockpit, but is not believed to be part of a terrorist plot, French officials said Thursday.German Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière confirmed the pilot had no terrorist background.The 28-year-old co-pilot “deliberately” initiated the plane’s descent, Marseille prosecutor Brice Robin told a press conference in which he revealed the details of recordings made by the Airbus’ cockpit flight recorder in the final minutes before the crash that killed all 150 aboard.“The co-pilot is alone at the controls,” Robin said. “He voluntarily refused to open the door of the cockpit to the pilot and voluntarily began the descent of the plane.”There was no immediate clue to the motive of the co-pilot, but investigators appeared to rule out terrorism.“At this moment, there is no indication that this is an act of terrorism,” Robin said, adding that the co-pilot, identified as Andreas Lubitz, had no known terrorist connection. “He was not known to us.”Despite the horrifying scenario of a rogue co-pilot sending the Germanwings crew and passengers to their deaths, Robin said that the passengers on board probably were unaware “until the end.”“The screams aren’t heard until the end,” he said.All six crew and 144 passengers died “instantly,” he added.The co-pilot, who deliberately set the controls “to accelerate the plane’s descent” into the side of a mountain in a region famous for its ski resorts, “was conscious until the moment of impact,” Robin said.Grieving relatives The shocking new information was released as families and friends of victims began arriving in France to travel to the remote mountainous crash site area, where locals have opened their doors in a show of solidarity with the grieving relatives.Two planes arrived in southern France on Thursday from Barcelona and Duesseldorf with families and friends.Tents were set up for them near the crash site area to give DNA samples to start the process of identifying the bodies of loved ones, at least 51 of whom were Spaniards and at least 72 Germans.Meanwhile, the remains of victims, found scattered across the scree-covered slopes, were being taken by helicopter to nearby Seyne-les-Alpes, a source close to the investigation told AFP.A mountain guide who got near the crash site said he was unable to make out recognisable body parts.“It’s incredible. An Airbus is enormous. When you arrive and there’s nothing there… it’s very shocking,” said the guide, who did not wish to be identified.The crash site, which is situated at about 1,500 meters (5,000 feet) altitude, is accessible only by helicopter or an arduous hike on foot.French President Francois Hollande and German Chancellor Angela Merkel flew over the site to see the devastation for themselves Wednesday. Spain’s Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy also visited a crisis center near the scene.It was the deadliest air crash on the French mainland since 1974 when a Turkish Airlines plane crashed, killing 346 people.Lufthansa said the aircraft was carrying citizens of 18 countries. Three Americans and three Britons were confirmed among the victims.Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Colombia, Denmark, Holland, Israel, Japan, Mexico and Morocco also had nationals on board, according to officials.Silent flight to disasterInvestigators say that once the co-pilot locked himself in, he never talked again. After he sent the plane into its fatal last dive, ground control repeatedly tried make contact and the co-pilot did not answer.“He had no reason not to talk to air control,” Robin said, adding that they could hear him “breathe normally.”“He didn’t reply to a thing. He didn’t say a word. In the cockpit, it was utter silence.”A source close to the enquiry said an alarm indicating proximity to the ground could be heard before the moment of impact.The dead on board flight 4U 9525 included two babies and 16 German school exchange pupils. They were flying from Barcelona to Duesseldorf.A second black box, which records flight data, has not yet been recovered.The New York Times cited a senior military official involved in the investigation as saying the cockpit black box recording indicated the pilot tried unsuccessfully to bash his way back in to the cockpit.“The guy outside is knocking lightly on the door, and there is no answer,” the investigator told the newspaper. “And then he hits the door stronger, and no answer. There is never an answer.” Facebook Commentslast_img read more
