Government Helping Communities Get Clear Title to Land

first_img “With clarity of ownership, residents will be in a better position to enjoy and use their land and resolve problems that can result from lack of clear land ownership,” said Agriculture and Fisheries and Aquaculture Minister Keith Colwell, on behalf of Natural Resources Minister Margaret Miller. “This plan is a response to recommendations from the communities, and we believe this new approach offers good options and resources to help people get clear title.” For more information on the project and the application process go to https://novascotia.ca/natr/titles-clarification/. funding to assist with legal and other fees and costs associated with clarifying ownership of land hiring two community liaison officers to help residents in the land title clarification areas to navigate the process to obtain clear title hiring a surveyor and two survey technicians to complete surveys and/or compiled plans in support of Land Titles Clarification Act applications administrative support from Nova Scotia Legal Aid Commission for issuing certificates to applicants support for clarifying ownership of land through the Land Titles Clarifications Act, estate administration through the Probate Act and Intestate Succession Act, and migration under the Land Registration Act government will also consider amending legislation to reduce barriers. Government will invest about $2.7 million over two years to help residents in five communities get clear title to land on which they live. The support includes funds to assist with legal fees and costs related to estate administration and migration, and new full-time positions dedicated to the land title clarification areas of North Preston, East Preston, and Cherry Brook in Halifax Regional Municipality and Lincolnville and Sunnyville in Guysborough County. “Our government is taking action with new ways to address disparities and systemic discrimination that African Nova Scotians have faced,” said Tony Ince, Minister of African Nova Scotian Affairs. “We’re turning a corner with new supports that will help remove the barriers to the legal title to the land on which many African Nova Scotians live.” The new initiative includes:last_img read more

Phoenix voters rejecting antirail initiative by wide margin

Phoenix voters by a wide margin were turning down a measure that would limit the future of light rail in the nation’s fifth largest city, early returns from a special election showed Tuesday.Nearly two-thirds of early, unofficial ballots counted so far show voters speaking out for mass transit by rejecting the measure known as Proposition 105, which aims to halt all planned light rail expansion inside city limits.The results so far are mostly from mail-in ballots and represent about 22.5% of the city’s 764,653 registered voters. More returns were expected later in the evening.Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego celebrated the early returns showing a margin of nearly 2-1 against the measure.“Light rail expansion is not stopping — not today, not tomorrow,” Gallego said. “This campaign was never about one track of rail. It was about equity for our entire city and voters delivered on that promise.”Approval of Proposition 105 would immediately stop a planned 5.5-mile (8.85-kilometre) extension of the rail into the working-class Hispanic and African American communities of south Phoenix, home to numerous auto repair shops and Mexican markets.It also would stop future extensions designed to link far-flung areas around the Valley of the Sun, including one planned to the state capitol and another to far western suburbs, home to many people who commute to the city’s centre for jobs and school.“We’re on pins and needles because we have no idea what the final results will show,” said Susan Gudino, who was gathering at a Mexican restaurant to await early returns with other backers of the “Yes on 105” effort launched by a group called Building a Better Phoenix.Gudino, 42, said a light rail extension would harm small businesses and change the character of south Phoenix, where she has lived most of her life. “It really would change everything,” she said.Tony Cani, a spokesman for the “No on 105” campaign, said keeping the door open to future expansion of light rail “is really about giving people the choice about where they can go to work and to school. We think mass transit can elevate people’s lives.”With a population of 1.6 million people, Phoenix is among other large cities in the U.S. with some kind of rail, but its system is modest compared with others, including New York City subways, Washington’s metro, Chicago’s L and San Francisco’s BART.Boston, Atlanta and Philadelphia also have some kind of rail system, and even the largely car-dependent Los Angeles area since 1990 has had Metro Rail, which has an average weekday ridership of nearly 350,000 people.Now stretching more than 26.3 miles (42.3 kilometres), construction of Phoenix’s Valley Metro system began in March 2005 and service was launched in December 2008. The agency says the system had about 15.7 million riders in 2018, with an estimated weekday ridership of nearly 48,000.Before three days of in-person voting ending on Tuesday, mail-in ballots had already pushed overall turnout for the special election higher than one held four years ago at the height of the Phoenix summer, when many people leave to escape triple-digit temperatures.The city clerk received 171,750 completed mail-in ballots by Monday, said spokesman Matthew Hamada. That’s about 31.2 per cent of the 549,128 early ballots sent to voters and 22.4 per cent of all the city’s registered voters.Phoenix voters tend to vote early by mail, with between 88% and 97% of all ballots in the last three citywide elections cast by early ballot.A second measure, Proposition 106, aims to limit the city’s spending until its pension debt is significantly reduced.Along with Building a Better Phoenix, the anti-rail Proposition 105 is backed by business owners along the planned south Phoenix extension route and City Council members Sal DiCiccio and Jim Waring.Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego and the other council members oppose the measure, saying the rail system would lose millions of dollars in federal funds that cannot be used for other purposes.Other opponents include the Greater Phoenix and Arizona Hispanic chambers of commerce, firefighters, unions and Arizona AARP.Those groups also oppose Proposition 106, saying it could slash funding for libraries and other city services.Anita Snow, The Associated Press read more

France to name and shame companies that pay women less

Fianna Fáil says government is incoherent and shambolic but will ensure it

first_img https://jrnl.ie/3240337 By Paul Hosford Feb 15th 2017, 9:08 AM Update 9.02 amFIANNA FÁIL HAS described the government’s handling of the Maurice McCabe revelations as “incoherent and shambolic” but insisted that it will ensure the government survives.Fianna Fáil’s health spokesperson Billy Kelleher made the comments on RTÉ’s Morning Ireland ahead of today’s Dáil debate on a motion of confidence in the government.The motion was tabled in response to a motion of no confidence in Enda Kenny tabled by Sinn Féin over the government’s handling of the controversy over an alleged smear campaign against Garda whistleblower Sergeant Maurice McCabe.Fianna Fáil has said that it will abstain in the vote of no confidence with Kelleher saying that it’s about ensuring the country has a government.“We will not be supporting the Sinn Fein motion, in other words we will not be bring down this government at this present time,” he said.We are committed to the principal of supply and confidence for three budgets and unless there are further developments we will ensure that this government survives.Despite this, Kelleher said that Fine Gael will have to “pull up their socks” due to what he described as its “incoherent and shambolic” response to the McCabe affair.The TD added that the vote must also be seen in the context of Sinn Féin playing “no meaningful role” in ensuring a government was formed after last year’s general election.DebateThe Dáil yesterday spent three hours hearing statements and asking questions on the issue. During that session, the Taoiseach said he gave inaccurate information in relation to a meeting Children’s Minister Katherine Zappone had with McCabe.Kenny said that Zappone had not told him that she was going to meet with McCabe before their meeting.

In a statement issued through his solicitors yesterday afternoon, Harrison called for “truth and justice”.Harrison claims that the incidents of alleged black propaganda contained in the protected disclosures of Superintendent David Taylor and McCabe are “not isolated”.Speaking to RTÉ’s Prime Time last night, Fine Gael TD John Deasy claimed he had been approached in January 2014 by a senior garda, who made allegations against McCabe.He said he believed there was a campaign against McCabe run by gardaí at a senior level.- With reporting by Rónán DuffyRead: Enda Kenny takes a number of different positions on Zappone conversationRead: 5 serious questions for the government that Dáil ‘clarifications’ did not clarifylast_img read more

This 73yearold student is doing the Leaving Cert this week

first_img Denis North receiving an achievement award for lifelong learning from principal Suzanne Barrett at Kennedy College Saturday 10 Jun 2017, 8:15 AM Share Tweet Email2 I got a bit of a crack notion one day, not having had the opportunity to do the Leaving Cert before, that I’d like to do it.In 2014, Denis studied the Leaving Cert maths curriculum independently from the school, while doing one of the PLC courses in the school, and went on to complete the exam. The following year, he did the same with history.Last year however, after a suggestion from principal Barrett, Denis made the decision to go into 5th year and begin the two-year Geography and English curriculum, along with the school’s students.“I had no problem integrating at all because I did youth work for years and years in the 13 to 18 age bracket. I had no problem with them and nor they with me,” Denis said.If this year goes well and if my health improves, I would hope to go back next year and definitely do Irish and maybe something else with it.Looking back at the school setting in the 1950s, Denis said that it’s a lot easier for students to learn in today’s world because the education system has widened out.“The big difference I see is there’s so much available now by way of technology, there’s so much available by way of textbooks. Textbooks were scarce when I was going to school,” he said.Throughout his three years studying Leaving Cert curriculum, Denis has had massive health problems. In 2014, he suffered a “very serious” aortic aneurysm which required an operation but he still went on to complete his exams.“If you set your mind on something you just get on with it,” he said.I don’t see this as a big achievement. I just see it as there’s no age limit on education.Denis stressed that any adult with an inkling to go back into education should do so.“Take your courage in your hands and have a go at it. The worst that can happen is you’ll pull out of it. I’m not in it to be struggling to get points. I just want to do it and be the best I can with it,” he said.“I would tell anyone thinking of doing it to have a go and just be positive.”Denis completed English Paper One and Two on Wednesday and took the Geography exam on Friday.Read: English Paper One: Reactions to the first exam of this year’s Leaving CertMore: Exam time: Here’s how your breathing and imagination can help during your exams 71 Comments Denis North receiving an achievement award for lifelong learning from principal Suzanne Barrett at Kennedy College Image: Maria Doyle/Kennedy College https://jrnl.ie/3432819 By Hayley Halpin Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article 24,279 Views Jun 10th 2017, 8:15 AM This 73-year-old student is doing the Leaving Cert this week Denis North is taking the English and Geography exams at Kennedy College, New Ross. Image: Maria Doyle/Kennedy College Short URL THOUSANDS OF TEENAGERS across Ireland are sitting their Leaving Cert and Junior Cert this week. In the midst of all the young students taking the exams is 73-year-old Denis North.Denis left education after completing the Intermediate Cert in 1960, when he was just 16 years old. A breakup in his family left him with no choice but to go out and get work to earn money.He worked for nearly 48 years in a finance company before receiving his pension at the age of 63. With a lack of confidence in getting new employment, Denis decided to return to education “to get involved with something instead of sitting around scratching [his] head”.Since then, Denis has completed the History and Maths Leaving Cert papers and is sitting the English and Geography exams this year. He has been suffering from serious health issues since 2014 but that hasn’t stopped him pursuing his educational goals.In 2014, the Vocational Training Opportunities Scheme (VTOS) caught his eye and he spent two years learning about computers, communications, cultural and history classes with the scheme in Wexford.Nearing the end of his two years, an opportunity arose for Denis to go on to complete a Post Leaving Cert (PLC) course at Kennedy College, New Ross. The school offers both second level education and PLC education.“I was looking at all the young fellas in the school and I spoke to the principal, Suzanne Barrett, about their PLC course and asked if they could facilitate me and they were all for it,” Denis said.He went on and completed two PLC courses at Kennedy College and during this time he decided to tackle the Leaving Cert.last_img read more

Dublin City councillors want realtime emissions data from the Poolbeg incinerator

One was released on Thursday – the other was released Friday.At a council meeting this evening, Green Party councillor Ciaran Cuffe said he was ‘pleased’ after requests to increase monitoring activity at the incinerator were passed this evening.last_img read more

Limited smelt dipping to return to Cowlitz River

first_imgFor the first time in four years, sport smelt dipping — ever so briefly — will be allowed in the Cowlitz River.Washington on Wednesday adopted a conservative reintroduction of smelt harvest by announcing that dipping will be allowed from 6 a.m. to noon on the next four Saturdays. The daily limit will be 10 pounds per person.Ron Roler, Columbia River policy coordinator for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, estimated the harvest would range between 1,500 and 39,900 pounds.Oregon approved allowing sport dipping in the Sandy River from 6 a.m. to noon on Saturdays from March 1 through March 22.The two states approved a commercial season of 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Mondays and Thursdays from Feb. 10 through March 6 in the Columbia River between Woodland and the ocean. Roler estimated the commercials would land between 2,300 to 13,300 pounds. No commercial dipping in the tributaries is being allowed at this time.Smelt once returned to the lower Columbia and Cowlitz rivers in extraordinary numbers. Commercial landings from 1938 to 2000 averaged 400,000 pounds annually in the lower Columbia and 1.17 million pounds annually in the Cowlitz River.But starting in the early 1990s, the population plummeted. In 2010, smelt were listed as threatened under the federal Endangered Species Act.Roler said the National Marine Fisheries Service identified the effects of climate change on ocean conditions as the most serious threat to smelt. Commercial harvest was ranked ninth and sport harvest was ranked 13th among 16 identified threats.Guy Norman, regional director of the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, noted that smelt populations have been improved for three years in a row and a huge run returned in 2013.last_img read more

Comprised of 11 community hospitals in 12 counties in Maine and New Hampshire, MaineHealth employs 18,000 employees to manage health and wellness programs that include disease diagnosis, for which it performs 1 million radiology exams per year.eUnity’s advanced HTML5-based platform is designed to support the imaging evolution from hospital department to healthcare enterprise. Engineered on a flexible zero-footprint architecture, eUnity supports the entire image life cycle and gives healthcare systems the power to consolidate viewers across the enterprise. Seamless integration to archives, electronic medical records (EMR) or other patient support systems enables diverse workflows including first read in the emergency room (ER), primary diagnosis by the radiologist, and patient support and treatment planning by surgeons, specialists and referring physicians. The eUnity server is easy to implement and maintain, according to Client Outlook, running on a virtual machine which eliminates the need for heavy hardware and expensive, non-scalable GPUs. Unlike most radiology reading solutions available today, eUnity does not require any software downloads on any devices, which translates into a cost-effective solution to deploy and support.MaineHealth applauded eUnity’s true zero footprint architecture and power to scale to the viewing needs of the users in its organization.For more information: www.clientoutlook.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Videos | Radiology Business | August 02, 2019 VIDEO: Key Topics for Radiology Administrators at AHRA 2019 Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) President … read more News | Artificial Intelligence | August 08, 2019 Half of Hospital Decision Makers Plan to Invest in AI by 2021 August 8, 2019 — A recent study conducted by Olive AI explores how hospital leaders are responding to the imperative read more Feature | Information Technology | July 31, 2019 | By Greg Freiherr How Smart Devices Can Improve Efficiency Innovation is trending toward improved efficiency — but not at the expense of patient safety, according to… read morelast_img read more

Why use MobX for State Management

Why use MobX for State Management

first_imgThe most downloaded Front-end framework in 2017 was React.js. The reason being the component driven architecture and easy to implement Reactive programming principles in applications. However, one of the key challenges faced by the developers is state management for large-scale applications. The ‘Setstate’ facility in React can be a workaround for small level applications, but as the complexity of the application grows, so does the importance of managing application state. That’s where MobX solves a lot of problems faced by the React developers. It’s easy to use and lightweight. MobX features a robust spreadsheet like architecture as shown below. Source: MobX MobX treats any change to the state as a derivative, like in the case of spreadsheets, where you can apply a formula for a particular column and the column values will change accordingly. The same thing happens in MobX. The change in state is reflected as a derivative, based on the derivative, reactions are generated, which are then trickled down to the component tree. So each change is reflected automatically across all the components. This is intuitive and removes a lot of overhead processes which plague Redux. Reactive programming is at the core of MobX. It uses concepts similar to RxJS. Values can be made observable so that when the value changes, anything that uses that value will update automatically. This is a pretty simple to grasp the concept that can make working with data much more intuitive. It has the potential to become not just a State management tool, but according to the creator of MobX, a ‘Data Flow tool’. Code can be expressed more concisely with the new JavaScript decorator syntax although create-react-app doesn’t support this syntax out of the box. MobX is suitable for different Front-end frameworks like Angular which improves its interoperability feature. The additional advantage is not having to go through the laborious set-up an installation and multi-component update process in Redux. MobX is not however without its limitations. Testing is still a matter of concern. It’s not immediately obvious how components should be broken up for testing. It is a bit easier without using the decorator syntax to separate the logic from the view, however, the documentation doesn’t touch on how this works when using the decorator syntax. The advantages and ease of use of MobX outweigh the negatives presently. As long as React component structure and Reactive programming paradigm remain as the foundation for modern day web development, Mobx usage will grow, and we might even see other similar libraries cropping up to tackle the issue of state management.
