Kelly Ellard killer of BC teen Reena Virk has day parole extended

first_imgVANCOUVER – A British Columbia woman who brutally beat and drowned 14-year-old Reena Virk near a Victoria-area bridge in 1997 has been granted an extension to her day parole.Kelly Ellard, 35, was convicted of second-degree murder in 2005 after three trials and received a life sentence. The Parole Board of Canada granted her conditional day parole last November.The board extended her day parole for another six months in late July, but the decision was only provided to media on Tuesday. It says Ellard successfully completed residential substance abuse treatment and now lives in a halfway house.“Despite your positive and encouraging commitment to change, the board remains mindful of the seriousness of the index offence,” the board members say in the decision.“You and others caused a horrific and senseless death that was disturbing due to the nature and level of gratuitous violence. The victim’s family must live with the consequences of your behaviour.”A court heard Ellard, then 15, and several other teens swarmed and beat Virk, with one attacker putting out a cigarette on her forehead. Ellard and a teenage boy followed Virk across the bridge, smashed her head into a tree and held her underwater until she drowned.Warren Glowatski was also convicted of second-degree murder and granted full parole in 2010.In recent years, Ellard has assumed more responsibility for her part in the murder, telling the parole board she rolled Virk’s unconscious body into the Gorge waterway. But she has continued to deny holding the girl’s head underwater.The board’s decision says Ellard now goes by the name Kerry Marie Sim.It says she has been open and transparent with her case management team, has managed her daily stress well and has not breached her conditions.Ellard became pregnant in 2016 during a conjugal visit with her boyfriend, who is also on parole, and the decision says she’s working with his case management team and social services to facilitate the care of their child. It does not say where the little boy lives.“You are very focused on your young child’s life,” the board members say in the decision. “It would appear that having a child has helped you focus on the important things in life and as a result your motivation to lead a crime free existence remains high.”The board would expect Ellard, as a new parent, to have a significantly greater understanding of the lifelong harm she has caused, the members add.“While the board recognizes your progress, your reintegration must continue in a slow and gradual process with substantial support and supervision,” board members say.“The board concludes caution is warranted and a longer period of compliance and transparency is required prior to consideration for any expanded form of leave.”Ellard must continue to comply with conditions including not drinking alcohol or using drugs, avoiding people involved in criminal activity and not contacting Virk’s family.Virk’s mother, Suman Virk, died in June at 58 years old. Premier John Horgan offered his condolences at the time, saying her “tireless” work to end bullying helped make life better for countless kids in B.C.Last year, about 200 people gathered outside a historic school that overlooks the beach near where the teen was killed to mark the 20-year anniversary of her death.last_img read more

Sitting and sleeping on downtown sidewalks could net 100 fine in BC

first_imgPENTICTON, B.C. — Sitting and sleeping on some downtown sidewalks could be banned in Penticton, B.C., this summer as part of the city’s plan to crack down on loitering.Councillors have voted 5-2 in favour of amending the Good Neighbourhood Bylaw, giving police and bylaw officers the power to hand out tickets for $100 fines.The measure, which still requires final approval, would be enforced between May and Sept. 30 and cover about a dozen blocks on Ellis, Martin and Main streets.Coun. Jake Kimberly told a council meeting it’s “unfortunate” the city has to resort to such a plan but loitering “interferes with the residents who pay for those sidewalks, it interferes with businesses that pay taxes to operate those stores.”Coun. Campbell Watt, who voted against the bylaw, expressed concern about how it may affect people watching a parade, for example, and said he’s not comfortable “pushing people out.”Coun. Julius Bloomfield agreed, saying the change would only target the “symptom” of a lack of affordable housing and should include public input.“I know there’s a lot of support, but I know there’s a lot of concern as well,” Bloomfield said.The bylaw already places limits on panhandling and the changes are aimed at those who are sleeping, loitering or deemed to be causing a nuisance in the designated areas, which make up about 17 per cent of the downtown sidewalk length.Bylaw services supervisor Tina Siebert told council the approach is meant to be minimally restrictive and her staff tries to “balance the heart with the hammer” in its dealings with people.Development services manager Anthony Haddad said the three streets selected for the loitering ban were chosen because they’ve either been revitalized or are up-and-coming areas.Other tentatively approved amendments to the Good Neighbour Bylaw would change the definition of street to include vacant storefronts, ban the connection of recreational vehicles to the city sewer system and prohibit the installation of lights that shine onto adjacent properties.The amendment will be back before council for final approval at a meeting on June 4.

Moroccan Model in Headscarf Unveils HMs New Collection

Rabat – Morocco’s Maria Idrissi has become H&M’s first Muslim model after she was featured in the Swedish fashion brand’s new fall collection sporting a headscarf.The Swedish fast-fashion company H&M, which has been ranked the second largest clothing retailer globally for years, after Zara, surprised many when they launched a brand new denim collection featuring a Moroccan woman in a headscarf.Morocco’s Maria Idrissi took part in the fashion brand’s short film that promotes their effort to recycle old clothes to launch a fresher, reinvented line, which began in 2013. In the ad campaign video, Idrissi is seen standing in a doorway, in big round movie star shades with wide-legged palazzo pants, a pink overcoat, and a checkered headscarf.Maria attracted the attention of fashion magazines worldwide. UK’s Glamour Magazine said, “Maria Idrissi is getting a lot of love on social media – and so is H&M for that matter.”Vaga Bomb reported that the Moroccan model has given Muslim girls in headscarves all over the world a chance to look at themselves in an ad campaign.Maria Idrissi said in a post on Instagram that she did not expect all this fame. “love to everyone who’s supporting hijab becoming more mainstream – both the Muslims and non Muslims,” she wrote.Multiple media reports suggested that H&M’s conscious step to include such a cultural icon as headscarves aims at addressing Muslim women, and in particular that the admiration for Muslim women’s fashion has been noted by industry experts, who consider it a rapidly growing trend.A previous report by Thomson Reuters said Muslims spent $266 billion on clothing and footwear in 2013, and will increase spending to $484 billion by 2019.© Morocco World News.

Belarus UN rights official speaks out against sentencing of political opponents

Mr. Parfyankou was arrested while participating in a rally protesting the outcome of the presidential elections on 19 December. He was found guilty of participating in mass disorder and sentenced to four years in a top security jail, according to a news release issued by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).“The prosecution and sentencing are particularly troubling given that he, together with dozens of other opposition activists, is facing trial for exercising his right to freedom of peaceful assembly and freedom of expression,” said High Commissioner Navi Pillay. “The continued detention of political opponents, harassment of civil society and intimidation of the independent media are serious human rights violations,” she added. According to OHCHR, between 30 and 40 of those detained following the 19 December crackdown on protestors remain in custody, many in the special detention centre of the KGB of Belarus. While some prominent opposition figures and journalists have been released, and some put under house arrest, more detentions and arrests took place at the beginning of this year. Ms. Pillay noted that the length and conditions of pre-trial detention in Belarus do not comply with the standards stipulated in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. Her office has also received reports of the continued intimidation of lawyers who provide legal counsel to the detainees and journalists, as well as the harassment of non-governmental organizations.“I have stressed before to the Belarus Government and I shall say it again: States have a duty to protect human rights defenders, journalists and civil society from threats, retaliation or pressure stemming from the legitimate exercise of their work in defence of human rights,” stated Ms. Pillay. She called for the immediate release of political detainees, including the remaining presidential candidates, and urged the Government to take its human rights obligations seriously. 21 February 2011The top United Nations human rights official today voiced deep concern at the harsh sentencing of Vasil Parfyankou in the first of dozens of trials against opposition leaders and supporters in Belarus. read more

Lack of WiFi Mobility Can Cripple UC

5G Insights: IoT Opportunities, Vulnerabilities Gary Audin August 13, 2019 5G will provide an opportunity to connect IoT devices across the enterprise, but security vulnerabilities may follow. Mobile Voice, Data, Text: Unlimited for $20 a Month?! Michael Finneran September 19, 2019 Calling itself an ‘infrastructure-based MVNO,’ cable operator Altice sets new price point for cellular service. The above scenario is repeated many times a day in many organizations. While the details may be different, the result is the same: The call drops when the mobile device switches APs. Increasing the density of APs (while reducing the cell size to prevent adjacent channel interference) exacerbates the problem. In the worst case, simply walking across a classroom or auditorium could cause a switch. MobilityWi-Fi mobility can work. It just requires that the Wi-Fi system be configured to support mobility. There are several mobility choices and the correct selection depends on your network architecture. First, an organization might not have mobility configured at all. In this case, when a client moves between APs, the client gets a new IP address. One way to avoid address changes is to use roaming at Layer 2. There’s another catch with Layer 2 roaming. We don’t recommend extending Layer 2 very far — it creates a large failure domain when (not if) a spanning tree loop forms. Troubleshooting spanning tree loops is time consuming. You have to physically break the network into individual segments by unplugging links in order to diagnose where the fault is occurring. You have a full schedule, so you grab your lunch and sit down for a few minutes. There’s an important project review conference call starting just as you sit down. You take the call on your tablet and finish lunch while on the call. The next meeting is in another part of the building, so you start walking. Then your connection to the network changes and your conference call drops. ARRG!!! Why won’t the call stay connected while you’re moving? Cell phones manage to stay connected while you’re driving! What happened is that your tablet switched from one access point (AP) to another, but mobile roaming wasn’t properly configured, so your tablet now has a new IP address.

There are two Layer 2 roaming situations: Dissecting Microsoft’s ‘Discovery’ of Firstline Workers Michael Finneran September 24, 2019 The mobile field is rife with meaningful examples of business process automation. Can Microsoft be a factor? The preferred configuration is to use Layer 3, placing each controller (and SSID) on a separate subnet. When the client roams to an AP that’s on the second controller, the client’s connection record is copied (not moved) to the second controller and is marked as Foreign, meaning that it has to handle packets that are forwarded from the original controller. The original controller’s record is marked as an Anchor record. Traffic to the client goes to the IP address associated with the original controller, which then forwards it to the second controller via an Ethernet-over-IP tunnel. More configuration is required and more troubleshooting when it has problems, but it’s better and safer design than stretching Layer 2 across the infrastructure.Tags:News & ViewsWi-Fi MobilityAccess Pointsnetwork designMobilityBest PracticesEnterprise NetworkingMonitoring & ManagementUnified Communications12nextlast Articles You Might Like Habits of the ‘Always’ Connected Worker Gary Audin September 20, 2019 How connected are we?

This is transparent to the client.If clients are able to roam between APs in situation 1 but not in situation 2, intermittent connectivity will result.

UN labour agency reports improving working conditions in Cambodian garment factories

The working conditions of some 30 garment factories in Cambodia, which produce apparel for sale in North America, Europe and developed countries in other regions, showed “encouraging signs of improvement,” according to a new report released today by the United Nations International Labour Organization (ILO). The “Third Synthesis Report on the Working Conditions Situation in Cambodia’s Garment Sector” provides an overview of progress made by the factories in implementing suggestions made by ILO monitors. The monitoring was done under a technical cooperation project established following an agreement signed in January 1999 by the governments of Cambodia and the United States and amended on last December. The basic goal is to improve working conditions in Cambodia’s textile and apparel sector through monitoring, legislation and increasing awareness of Cambodian labour law and core labour standards developed by the ILO. “We are pleased to note that this ILO project is directly contributing to the improvement of working conditions for Cambodian garment workers,” ILO Director-General Juan Somavia said. “This provides sound support for one of the ILO’s basic tenets, that employers, workers and governments can work together for the benefit of all concerned.” According to the report, recent monitoring found no evidence of child labour or sexual harassment in the factories. While some problems remain, the report found improvements in ensuring freedom of association and the correct payment of wages. The plants covered in the report employ some 21,000 workers, of whom about 19,000 are women. Overall, Cambodia has some 200 garment factories employing 200,000 workers and produced about $1.1 billion in garment exports, or about 77 per cent of total exports, in 2001. About $820 million of those exports were to the United States, according to the Cambodian Development Resource Institute (CDRI). read more

Towards ending the AIDS epidemic amongst adolescents’ event at the United Nations. © UNICEF/NYHQ2014-1720/Nesbitt In the fight against HIV/AIDS, progress for adolescents has fallen behind, world leaders gathered at a United Nations meeting in Nairobi, Kenya, stressed today, as they launched a global initiative that aims to end the second leading cause of death among young people worldwide. While major advances have been made in almost every area of the response to the human immunodeficiency virus, just one in four children and adolescents under the age of 15 have access to life-saving treatment. And deaths are declining in all age groups, except among 10-19 year olds, according to the UN. “Children and young people should be the first to benefit from the progress we have made in ending the epidemic, not the last,” said UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Executive Director Anthony Lake at the launch of a new platform for action to drive better results for adolescents by encouraging changes in policy and engaging young people in the effort.p> The ‘All In’ initiative, a partnership between UNAIDS [Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS] and UNICEF, aims to reach adolescents with HIV services designed for their specific needs and to fast-track progress to advance global efforts to end the AIDS epidemic by 2030. “We need to reach the adolescents we are missing and engage all young people in the effort to end adolescent AIDS. In fact, we cannot achieve the goal of an AIDS-free generation without them,” Mr. Lake stressed. More than 200 young advocates and leaders from adolescent and youth movements were present at launch of ‘All In’ in Nairobi today. ‹ › New HIV infections among adolescents are not declining as quickly as among other age groups. Adolescent girls are most affected. In South Africa, for example, more than 860 girls became infected with HIV every week in 2013, compared to 170 boys. “HIV is the leading cause of death among adolescents in Africa and young women are most affected. This is a moral injustice. I am calling on young people to lead the ‘All In’ movement, alongside the United Nations, public and private partners, and countries themselves, to end the adolescent AIDS epidemic,” said Michel Sidibé, Executive Director of UNAIDS. This is also a pressing issue in East Asia and the Pacific. Thailand, for example, is facing a new rise in HIV cases, especially among young people, with 70% of all sexually transmitted infections (STI) cases occurring in the 15-24 age group. New data released in 2014 showed infections have risen among groups of at-risk young people, namely those involved in sex work, those injecting drugs, and young men having unprotected sex with men. UNICEF Thailand used this data to talk to the government about reducing the age of consent for HIV tests to below 18, providing training for health workers on working with at-risk young people, and expanding HIV education in schools. In December 2014, the official guidance on HIV tests was changed in line with these recommendations. Meanwhile, UNAIDS has set new Fast-Track Targets to be achieved by 2020 for adolescents that include reducing new HIV infections by at least 75%, reducing AIDS-related deaths by 65% and achieving zero discrimination. Achieving these targets would put the world on track towards ending adolescent AIDS by 2030 and ending the global AIDS epidemic as a public health threat. Most of the 2.1 million adolescents living with HIV in 2013 became infected at least 10 years ago, when their mothers were pregnant, during delivery or in the first months of life – at a time when antiretroviral medicines that can greatly reduce the possibility of HIV transmission were not available. Many were never diagnosed, fell out of treatment and care programmes. read more

Greece tops EU corruption list

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Despite a raft of reforms over the past few months, including a crackdown on tax evasion and on graft in the public sector, Greece is still perceived as the most corrupt state in the 27-member European Union, according to this year’s corruption index published by Transparency International.The index shows that Greece has fallen seven places to 78th out of the 180 countries surveyed, seven spots below the 71st place it shared last year with Bulgaria and Romania.The development comes just a few months after the government launched a campaign against corruption.The president of Transparency’s Athens office, Costas Bakouris, said the government was giving the wrong message by pushing through reforms while offering an amnesty to tax offenders and seeking to legitimise thousands of properties that have been illegally built or extended. “The solution is to target citizens and businesses that have not fulfilled their obligations to the state and to punish them as an example,” Bakouris said.last_img read more

The Ultimate Super Smash Bros Character Guide Sonic

Ultimate is huge. Not just in terms of hype and importance and sales potential, but just in terms of sheer stuff. The Nintendo Switch mascot fighter features over a hundred stages, nearly a thousand songs, and too many Pokemon and items and Assist Trophies to think of crammed onto a cartridge you can plan on the go or on a TV. When you have as many big franchises as Nintendo, putting them all in one game will make that game is very big boy indeed.But the biggest, most exciting thing about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is its mind-blowing, heartwarming roster of playable characters. Fighting games pride themselves not just on the strength of their mechanics but the strength of its fighters, especially in a crossover fighters like this. And Super Smash Bros. Ultimate crushes all rivals by including every single playable character from the across the four previous games in the twenty-year-old series. Include the new combatants and so far we have over 70 fighters to wrap our heads around. We’re excited, but we’re also intimidated. So to get ready for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, every day, character by character, we’re creating the ultimate guide to all of its characters. Today’s fighter: Sonic. Stay on targetcenter_img Who Are They?Hold onto your chili dogs because it’s Sonic the Hedgehog, the speedy blue little critter who made Sega a powerful console maker in the 1990s and a modest third-party publisher today. 90 percent of Sonic games are absolute garbage, yet people still have a ton of love and nostalgia for this scamp. So he must be doing something right. Just hold onto this particular image of Sonic before Hollywood somehow finds a new way to ruin him.Smash HistoryIt’s absolutely hilarious to me that Solid Snake got to earn the title of first third-party Smash character before Sonic. When Sonic did eventually appear in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, it wasn’t so much about playing out the legendary mascot rival battle between Sonic and Mario. It was more just being glad Sonic ran in on Snake’s coattails. Still, Sonic in Brawl and every Smash Bros. game since is a huge deal. It’s always special when an EGM April Fools’ Day rumor becomes a real thing.What Looks New in Ultimate?After being only decent in Brawl, it’s actually disgusting how great Sonic became in Smash Wii U/3DS. At Ultimate’s E3 tournament the final match came down to Mario vs. Sonic because those were just smart characters to pick. But Ultimate isn’t Smash Wii U/3DS and Sonic isn’t quite what he used to be. Most notably, while Sonic still has his incomparable dash speed, his spin dash attacks themselves can’t be cancelled or power through shields as easily.Our Hopes?Ultimate features music from Sonic Mania, by far the best Sonic the Hedgehog game in decades. With that nod to classic Sonic games, would it be too much to ask for a classic Sonic character model? Or at the very least get the movie version in there.

Mortgage Rates Steady Amid Mixed Sales Reports

first_imgMortgage Rates Steady Amid Mixed Sales Reports Share in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, News 2014-07-24 Tory Barringercenter_img July 24, 2014 459 Views It’s been another lazy week for mortgage rates, with slight—albeit mixed—movements all around, market reports indicate.In its latest Primary Mortgage Market Survey, Freddie Mac recorded a 4.13 percent average interest rate (0.6 point) for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) product for the week ending July 24, unchanged from last week’s survey results.A year ago at this time, the 30-year FRM averaged 4.31 percent.The 15-year FRM this week averaged 3.26 percent (0.6 point), up a few basis points from 3.23 percent last week.Adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs) saw a similar trend. According to Freddie Mac, the 5-year Treasury-indexed hybrid ARM averaged 2.99 percent (0.5 point) for the week, up slightly from the last survey, while the 1-year ARM stayed flat at 2.39 percent (0.4 point).The latest movement—or lack of movement—among interest rates follows news of mixed activity in the housing market in June.On Tuesday, the National Association of Realtors reported a 2.6 percent pickup in existing-home sales throughout the month to a level of 5.04 million, the highest pace since October 2013. Only two days later, the Department of Commerce reported a decline in new home sales following a huge revision to May figures.While shifting metrics in housing usually exert some influence on interest rates, finance site Bankrate.com says there are even larger forces currently keeping rates in a narrow range.“Despite the Fed’s ongoing tapering of their bond purchases, continued improvement in the job market, and signs of a rebound in economic growth after a dismal first quarter, the flow of money from overseas investors into U.S. government bonds is keeping a lid on bond yields and mortgage rates,” Bankrate said.In its own national survey, Bankrate clocked the 30-year fixed average at 4.28 percent for the week, reflecting a small decline from last week. The 15-year fixed average moved up slightly, meanwhile, coming to 3.41 percent.last_img read more
