MONTREAL — The company that owns Mac’s and Couche-Tard stores is making further advances in Europe with the acquisition of Ireland’s leading operator of gas bar and convenience store stations.The Quebec-based company says it has an agreement to buy the Topaz chain for an undisclosed price.Couche-Tard says Topaz is a good strategic fit within its European network.“It has an extensive and attractive convenience and fuel network, with good locations, quality forecourts and stores, an excellent food offering and very professional teams,” Europe group president Jacob Schram said in a statement.Topaz has a network of 464 fuel stations across the island of Ireland including its recently acquired Esso station network.Of these stations, 162 are owned by Topaz and 302 by dealers.Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc raises dividend as profit increasesHow long can the highs last for Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc shares?The agreement also includes a commercial fuels operation, with over 30 depots and two owned terminals.Alimentation Couche-Tard is one of North America’s largest operators of convenience stores and gas bar retailing operations.In the United States, it operates mainly as Circle K which will eventually become its main global brand outside of Quebec.The Montreal-area company headquartered in Laval has been building its presence in Europe since the 2012 purchase of Statoil Fuel & Retail — which operates primarily in the Scandanavian and Baltic region.In English Canada, Couche-Tard is best known for the Mac’s convenience store chain which will be converted to the Circle K brand starting in May 2017. In its home province, the Couche-Tard banner will remain. read more
“What is important is that the democratic process is being followed,” Mr. Annan said to reporters as he entered the United Nations Headquarters in New York. “I hope that the kind of change taking place will remain peaceful, that it will be democratic and the nation will come together to get themselves out of this difficulty.”The Secretary-General also wished Ms. Megawati and the country every success. “Indonesia is an important nation for the region and the world,” he said.
On the first day of an official visit to Ecuador, the chief of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) today praised the country’s new law aimed at improving the lives of boys and girls, and urged authorities to make the necessary budget allocations to enable its full implementation.“By investing in services for children, Ecuador’s government is making an investment in its future – one that will pay huge dividends. UNICEF applauds this commitment, and we hope it grows,” Executive Director Carol Bellamy said.Ms. Bellamy’s visit to Ecuador includes meetings with President Lucio Gutierrez, other senior officials and representatives of Congress to discuss a number of issues related to children and the implementation of the Ecuadorian Code for Children and Adolescents. The Code approved by the Ecuadorian Congress entered into effect at the start of this year. It encompasses social protection such as childhood disabilities, sexual abuse and physical mistreatment at home and educational institutions. It also covers children of incarcerated parents and those removed from their home environment. “The Ecuadorian budget must guarantee sufficient resources to allow fulfilment of social goals for children,” Ms. Bellamy said, calling for “tough budget decisions” that would enable the full implementation of the Code.Since the onset of a regional economic crisis in 1998, conditions for children and adolescents have gradually deteriorated, according to UNICEF. Ecuador has a population of 4.8 million children less than 18 years of age, which is about 40 per cent of the total population. read more
The Ministry of Defence (MOD), with support from the Afghanistan New Beginnings Programme (ANBP), kicked off the campaign in the capital Kabul, where ex-fighters of the 99th Rocket Brigade turned in over 60 of their surface-to-air missiles at a military site in nearby Qagarah, making the first time a military unit has turned in its missiles.Manoel de Almeida e Silva, spokesman for the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) told a news briefing yesterday that as the programme rolls out some 800 soldiers from six units will be disarmed and demobilized.Two weeks later, they will begin the reintegration programme of their choice, according to Mr. de Almeida e Silva. The options are agriculture, vocational training, small business, de-mining, contracting teams or joining the Afghan National Army or Afghan National Police. read more
“The people of South Sudan are suffering beyond measure. [The famine] represents only the most extreme tip of the iceberg of needs in this country,” said Eugene Owusu, the Humanitarian Coordinator in the country, in a news release issued by the UN Office of the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA). On 20 February, famine was formally declared in parts of the country. A formal declaration means people have already started dying of hunger. “To avert further catastrophe, it is imperative that humanitarians are able to act swiftly and robustly,” Mr. Owusu underlined. The UN official’s call follows a series of recent events which have hampered humanitarian operations and placed civilians at risk. For instance, during clashes in Jonglei state, humanitarian compounds were looted by armed actors and community members; and 28 humanitarian workers were forced to relocate from Mayendit County, one of the two counties hit by famine in Unity State, due to insecurity. Aid workers were also denied access last week to key locations outside of Lainya town, in Central Equatoria, where tens of thousands of people in need have not been reached with aid in months. RELATED: Famine declared in region of South Sudan – UN“I implore all parties to this conflict to uphold their responsibilities under international humanitarian law, place the plight of the people first, give aid workers unfettered access, and protect civilians,” Mr. Owusu added. “Time is of the essence, and lives are in the balance, so it is critical that these words be translated into concrete actions on the ground immediately.” The news release also noted that President of South Sudan provided reassurances that all humanitarian organizations will have unimpeded access to needy populations across the country. According to OCHA, insecurity and lack of access have complicated an already worrying situation: more than 100,000 people face starvation in the famine-declared parts of the country, and a further one million are on the brink of famine. There are also fears that by the height of the lean season in July, some 5.5 million people could face severe food insecurity across the country. Additionally, since December 2013, about 3.4 million people have been displaced, including about 1.5 million who fled as refugees to neighbouring countries. Against this backdrop, humanitarian organizations have appealed urgent funds to respond to the escalating crisis, with $1.6 billion required to provide life-saving assistance and protection to some 5.8 million people across South Sudan in 2017. read more
“While the building blocks of stabilization are being put in place, we cannot lose sight of the challenges of reintegration,” Jean Arnault, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative, told the Security Council, presenting the first quarterly report on the activities of the UN Verification Mission in Colombia, which he heads up.The mission, which started its operations on 26 September 2017, was established to verify the commitments of the Government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia-People’s Army (FARC-EP) on reintegrating former FARC-EP members into society, and on ensuring security in territories most affected by the decades-long conflict, which was ended with a peace deal between the two sides in November 2016.Mr. Arnault said that the political reintegration of the former guerrilla organization is on course, noting that the upcoming parliamentary and presidential elections this year and local and departmental elections in less than two years will be an opportunity for the new FARC party to gain seats.“But we continue to view with concern the socioeconomic reintegration of the 14,000 former combatants,” he said, explaining that many of them are still in prison and are extremely frustrated with the reintegration process.President Juan Manuel Santos Calderón has taken the important step of recognizing the need for access to landownership as a major incentive for reintegration.For their part, many FARC members have demonstrated on the ground that they are willing and able to engage in agriculture, environmental protection and crop substitution.These are promising developments, but only that. The next few months must be the opportunity to “turn the corner,” and make a fragile process more durable.Regarding a temporary ceasefire between the Government and the National Liberation Army (ELN), Mr. Arnault stressed that the clamor for the continued suspension of military action has been unanimous, and reiterated the need to preserve the lower level of violence as seen in the past three months, while also advocating for a clearer and more reliable ceasefire.“Unfortunately, it was just announced that attacks against pipelines by the ELN have just resumed. We will follow closely developments and keep the Council informed,” Mr. Arnault said.See Security Council press statement on Colombia hereMeanwhile, UN Spokesman Stéphane Dujarric told reporters in New York that the Secretary-General will be travelling to Bogotá, Colombia, on 13 January to support peace efforts.On Saturday, Mr. Guterres will meet with the President, officials of the Government and armed forces, as well as with the leadership of the FARC and the Catholic Church.On Sunday, the Secretary-General will travel to Meta Department, where his agenda will include a visit to a territorial area for training and reintegration of former FARC combatants.Asked if the UN chief will meet with the ELN, Mr. Dujarric said “we’re concerned by the incident this morning – an attack on an oil pipeline. We’re obviously following the developments very closely and we’re keeping the Security Council informed.” read more
Astronomers hunting for signs of intelligent alien life in the universe have recorded 15 mysterious radio signals coming from a dwarf galaxy three billion light years away.The team is part of the Breakthrough Listen project, set up by Professor Stephen Hawking and Russian billionaire Yuri Milner, to discover whether we’re alone in the universe.Although the latest fast radio bursts, or FRBs, are unlikely to have come from an alien civilisation, the researchers say it proves their equipment is working well, and ready to pick up signs of life if they exist.FRBs are radio signals from somewhere in deep space that last for just milliseconds. The new bursts came from an unknown source, dubbed ‘FRB 121102’, which was discovered in 2012. Yuri Milner and Prof. Stephen Hawking at the launch of the Breakthrough project on 20th July 2015Credit:Julian Simmonds Telegraph Astronomer Royal Lord Martin Rees, who chairs the project, told The Telegraph: “They looked at a source that was already known to the the most ‘active’ of the ‘fast radio burst’ sources discovered.“They have found even more frequent, fainter, bursts from this same object.“Some journalists have written that this is evidence for extraterrestrial intelligence. Nobody is claiming this. But it confirms that their equipment is working well.”The new results are reported as an Astronomer’s Telegram and will be described in further detail in an upcoming scientific journal article. Breakthrough Listen is a $100 million global astronomical initiative launched in 2015 by Hawking and Milner which has teams around the world using their telescopes to look for evidence of life.The initial 10 year programme will survey the 1,000,000 closest stars to Earth, scanning the entire galactic plane of the Milky Way. Beyond our galaxy it will listen for messages from the 100 closest galaxies at 10 billion different frequencies. “If some form of life would like to produce a signal that is detectable to another civilisation this could be a way to do it, but I don’t think they are coming from intelligent civilisations.“There are more theories than the number of sources. We have opened more questions than answers. As we do more study we find more weird things.” Dr Vishal Gajjar at UC Berkeley Research Centre said: “We really have no idea about where they come from. We currently know 30 to exist in the universe and only one is known to repeat which means we can look at it again and again. We looked at this one at a higher frequency.

Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. Announcing the project at the time at a press conference in London, Hawking said it ‘was time to commit to finding the answer to life beyond Earth.“Somewhere in the universe intelligent life may be watching the lights of ours aware of what they mean,” he said.The latest signals were picked up by Green Bank Telescope in West Virginia, US. Nine million volunteers around the world are also donating their spare computing programme to search the data coming back from the telescopes. At first scientists thought the signals were the fallout from a catastrophic event in space, like a supernova, but then they repeated again in 2015 and 2016 suggesting the whatever object produced them was still there.In the new experiment, scientists from University of California, Berkeley, scanned the same galaxy at a higher frequency than which had been used to see the original bursts, and found 15 more.Explanations for the signals range from rotating neutron stars with extremely magnetic fields, to energy sources used by extraterrestrial civilisations to power spacecraft. Whatever they are they left their galaxy when our Solar System was just two billion years old, and life was just getting going on Earth.

SINN FÉIN PRESIDENT Gerry Adams today denied he had any involvement in the murder of Jean McConville and criticised the Boston Oral History project.Responding to media speculation that the PSNI may be interested in speaking to him in reference to the Jean McConville case, in which a 77-year-old man has been charged. Adams said:I can understand the McConville family’s anger and hurt given what they have been through and given what some anti-peace process former republican activists have been alleging.However, let me repeat. What happened to Jean McConville was a terrible injustice.I was not involved in any part of it. If the PSNI wish to talk to me on this matter I am available to meet them. I have asked my solicitor to contact them. US CollegeSpeaking about the project by the US college, in which a number of people with ties to the IRA were interviewed, describing it as “shoddy” and a “self-serving effort” by those involved.He said that some of the individuals interviewed have gone to “great lengths to attack the republican struggle,” he said.“The issue of the past needs to be dealt with and I and Sinn Féin are committed to this. We have argued for an independent, international, truth recovery process. However, if this cannot be agreed then we are seeking the implementation of the Haass compromise proposals,” Adams said.He said that this included” the right of families to choose whether to pursue legal action or to seek maximum truth recovery”.Read: Boston College testimony used to bring veteran republican to court over Jean McConville> Adams: Legacy issues best dealt with through “truth recovery process”> read more
France : 3.000 cas de rougeole ont été recensés depuis janvier 2010France – Entre janvier et août 2010, plus de 3.000 cas de rougeole ont été signalés. Un chiffre qui porte le nombre de personnes touchées depuis l’épidémie de janvier 2008 à 5.220 cas.Depuis janvier 2008, 5.220 cas de rougeole ont été observés, dont 3.094 entre janvier et août 2010, avec un pic observé en avril explique l’Institut de veille sanitaire. Ce dernier ajoute que sur l’ensemble des personnes touchées par la maladie depuis janvier, 34% ont été hospitalisées tandis que la rougeole est en importante augmentation chez les enfants de moins de 1 an.Et Le Parisien de préciser que si l’ensemble du pays est touché, quatre régions semblent l’être davantage, en l’occurrence les Pyrénées-Orientales, la Vienne, l’Aveyron et l’Ariège. Relaxnews précise de son côté qu’un plan d’élimination de la rougeole est effectif depuis 2005 en France.Le 28 octobre 2010 à 09:18 • Emmanuel Perrin read more
Les plantes s’activent dès le printempsLes chercheurs ont pu identifier le gène qui déclenche le processus de floraison chez les plantes, dès l’apparition des beaux jours. Comment un parterre de fleurs peut-il recouvrir votre pelouse en une seule journée, dès qu’il fait un peu plus chaud ? C’est la question que quiconque est amené à se poser en observant ce fantastique phénomène et qui trouve aujourd’hui sa réponse. Il y a quelques semaines, des scientifiques de l’Université d’Édimbourg ont découvert que l’horloge biologique des plantes était contrôlée par une douzaine de gènes. Ces derniers lui permettait notamment de ralentir son activité nocturne.Cette fois, des chercheurs anglais du John Innes Centre, ont dévoilé que le gène responsable de la floraison, le PIF4, ne s’activait qu’à une certaine température externe. Les résultats de l’étude ont été publiés dans le magazine Nature, dans lequel Philip Wigge, le co-auteur, explique que “l’on sait depuis des centaines d’années que les plantes fleurissent quand il fait plus chaud. La question qui se posait était plutôt de savoir comment elles contrôlent ce processus avec tant de précision”.L’étude a ainsi mis en évidence deux mécanismes qui permettent aux plantes de réagir à l’arrivée du printemps : la durée de la lumière sur une journée et le changement de température. Cité par la BBC, le docteur Wigge précise que “nous avons découvert le gène qui correspond au second mécanisme. Et il est remarquable, car il ne s’active que quand il fait plus chaud. Car si vous refroidissez l’environnement de la plante, il reste inactif. Dès que les températures augmentent, il déclenche la floraison”. Lumière du jour pour les unes, température pour les autresÀ lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Pour leur étude, les scientifiques ont utilisé la Arabidopsis thaliana, l’Arabette de Thalius, qui se développe en Europe, en Asie et en Afrique du Nord, et dont le génome a été le premier a être séquencé. Ils ont aussi découvert que ces deux mécanismes variaient d’une plante à l’autre. “Certaines plantes fleurissent chaque printemps au même moment, alors que d’autres fleuriront plus tôt s’il fait chaud plus tôt. Ces dernières présentent un gène PIF4 actif”, explique Philipp Wigge. Ainsi, selon lui, “ces plantes seront capables de survivre à d’autres espèces qui ne répondent qu’à la lumière du jour, si le changement climatique s’accélère”. Certaines plantes sont ainsi en train de s’adapter au réchauffement climatique. Mais outre mieux connaitre le mécanisme de floraison des fleurs, cette découverte pourrait aussi permettre une avancée dans la recherche pour renforcer la résistance des récoltes au changement climatique. En effet, Philip Wigge a estimé que pour chaque hausse de la température d’environ 1°C, la production céréalière diminuerait de 10%. “La température a des effets très variés et complexes sur les rendements. Nous pensons que le même processus qui se déroule chez les plantes a également lieu pour le blé et l’orge”. “Connaître le rôle clé que joue la température dans le processus de floraison devrait être un outil majeur alors que le climat se réchauffe rapidement”, précise-t-il via Redorbit.

Fourteen alleged gang members are off of the streets of 5th and Patapsco Avenue of South Baltimore’s Brooklyn area thanks to Baltimore Police.On June 5 Baltimore City Police Commissioner Kevin Davis held a news conference announcing the indictment of 14 individuals involved in violent activity including guns, drugs, robbery, car jacking, and other crimes related to gang activity.The neighborhood of Brooklyn has been a problem for Baltimore City Police because of near constant violent crimes.Jonathan McFadden, Everett Washington, John Goodman, Troy Matthews, Christopher Miller and Corey Jones are still at large. (Courtesy Photo)“This very small geography was disproportionately responsible for the violence in our city, so we had to do something about it,” said Davis.Even though 14 indictments seem like a major bust for Baltimore Police, only eight people are in custody; six are still wanted.In 2017, Baltimore City has seen 151 homicides, a dramatic increase from the previous year, but the neighborhood of Brooklyn has seen at least seven of those homicides.Councilman Ed Reisinger, who represents the Brooklyn district, said citizens are stepping up and speaking out.“I’m glad that it happened, it’s about time. The communities of Brooklyn and Curtis Bay have been seized by prostitution, drug dealers, crime in those two communities,” said Reisinger.Police believe these crimes took place in less than a 20 block radius.Antonio McDuffie, a business owner who is set to open a church in the neighborhood says the gap between older and younger generations need to be closed.“But we as a community have to step up, the household has to step up. We could put the blame on everyone else, but it starts at home.”Dequan Cheatham, 31, Dayquan Givens, 21, Carl Griffin, 25, Antione Lucas, 38, Horace Montgomery, 49, Lance Parker, 32, Crystal Whye, 33, and Adrian Worrell, 33, have been taken into custody.Police are still searching for John Goodman, 29, Corey, Jones, 30, Troy Matthews, 30, Jonathan McFadden, 26, Christopher Miller, 25 and Everett Washington, 47.Police urge those with information on the wanted six to call Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-877-LOCKUP or call 911. read more

It was last Thursday when Google changed its policy of forced arbitration in case of sexual harassment. A day after that, Facebook announced that it is also changing its policy of forced arbitration that requires employees to settle sexual harassment claims in private, as per the Wall Street Journal. This means that employees can now take any of their sexual harassment complaints to a court of law. Following Google’s footsteps, Facebook has also made its arbitration policy optional. Anthony Harrison, corporate media relations director, Facebook, confirmed that Facebook has made arbitration optional. “Today, we are publishing our updated Workplace Relationships policy and amending our arbitration agreements to make arbitration a choice rather than a requirement in sexual harassment claims. Sexual harassment is something that we take very seriously, and there is no place for it at Facebook”, said Harrison. Moreover, Facebook also announced an updated “Relationships at work policy”. As per the updated policy, anyone who starts a relationship with anyone in the management chain must disclose it to the HR. Additionally, if you are a Director or above and you get into a relationship with someone at the company, it must be reported to the HR. Google decided to modify its policy after 20,000 Google employees along with Temps, Vendors, and Contractors walked out earlier this month to protest against the discrimination, racism, and sexual harassment present at Google’s workplace. Google made the arbitration process optional for individual sexual harassment and sexual assault claims. “Google has never required confidentiality in the arbitration process and it still may be the best path for a number of reasons (e.g. personal privacy), but, we recognize that the choice should be up to you”, mentioned Sundar Pichai, Google CEO, on the announcement page. Facebook is the latest tech company who has decided to change the forced arbitration policy. Other companies such as Uber and Microsoft have changed their arbitration policy in the recent past. Uber made arbitration optional, back in May, to bring “transparency, integrity, and accountability” to its handling of sexual harassment. Microsoft was one of the first major organizations who decided to completely eliminate forced arbitration clauses for sexual harassment, last December. It seems like Google Walkout managed to not only push Google to take a stand against sexual assault but also inspired other companies to take the right steps in case of sensitive issues.
