Two Nunavut communities decide beer and wine store future Monday

first_img(Iqaluit voted to allow a beer and wine store to open in April 2015. There is no store yet. Photo: Steve Mongeau/APTN)Kent DriscollAPTN National NewsVoters in two of Nunavut’s largest communities will decide Monday if there will be a beer and wine store in each of the communities.Cambridge Bay and Rankin Inlet will vote in a non-binding ballot to decide whether to open a store selling beer and wine.Both communities allow alcohol – but only if they import it.But a simple yes vote doesn’t guarantee success.In 2015, Iqaluit residents voted 77 percent in favour of a beer and wine outlet – but that outlet has yet to open.The latest announced date has it opening this summer.Nunavut’s current alcohol regime is multi-tiered and complex. Individual communities decide whether to be completely dry, to allow some alcohol with a committee approving orders, or simply allowing alcohol to be shipped in freely.A public vote with a 60 percent majority is needed to change a community’s status. To trigger that vote, you only need the signatures of 20 voters.Under Nunavut’s current system, if a community allows alcohol, it must be shipped in from another community. For example, both Iqaluit and Rankin Inlet have liquor ware houses, but are not allowed sell locally.If you live in Iqaluit, you have to order from Rankin Inlet, and vice versa. The two communities are 90 minutes away by air.Meanwhile, restaurant and bar orders are filled from the warehouse in their community.As a result, most people ordering legally opt to have their alcohol shipped in by plane from Southern Canada, for convenience and selection. In either case, in addition to the air freight costs, a liquor import permit must be purchased.Government members have argued that allowing for beer and wine sales will reduce the harm caused by hard liquor, the beverage of choice among bootleggers.Former premier and then Justice minister Paul Okalik left Nunavut’s cabinet, saying he could not support a beer and wine store unless the government opened an alcohol treatment facility in Iqaluit.Nunavut currently has no such facility.Six of Nunavut’s communities currently don’t allow alcohol at all, 14 follow the committee system, and the remaining six are wide open.In the end, if Iqaluit is any indication, it could be years until they see a store front. The capital of Nunavut voted to open a store in April 2015, but there is no store yet.kdriscoll@aptn.caFollow @kentdriscolllast_img read more

Algeria Creates Regional Tensions to Distract Citizens From Real Crisis: Bourita

Rabat – Algeria may be convinced that it has no responsibility in the Western Sahara conflict, but for Morocco, its eastern neighbor has always failed to shoulder its role in the decades-long regional conflict. In an interview with the France-based magazine Jeune Afrique, Morocco’s Foreign Affairs Minister, Nasser Bourita, discussed all of the recent development in the conflict, as well as Morocco’s decision to cut ties with Iran.Bourita started his interview by discussing Algeria’s denial of its status as the main party to the ongoing conflict over Western Sahara. According to Bourita, “nobody in his right mind” could believe that the Western Sahara conflict can be solved without Algeria. Over the years, Morocco has been urging the United Nations to urge Algeria to participate in the UN-led political process. This year, Morocco escalated its rhetoric and called on the United Nations to pressure Algeria, as its separatist ally, Polisario, has increased its illegal actions east of Morocco’s defense wall. On April 4, King Mohammed VI addressed an urgent letter to the United Nations, emphasizing that “it is Algeria that hosts, arms, backs up, and brings diplomatic support for the Polisario.”In his interview, Bourita recalled a paragraph added in the latest Security Council resolution 2414, which calls on Algeria to contribute more to the political process and to “strengthen its commitment to the negotiations.”Algeria Will Create More Troubles“Morocco knows that Algeria will remain stubborn, rejecting its role in the regional conflict,” he said. Bourita said that the country is expecting more problems from its eastern neighbor. “As we know them, they will certainly create other problems in the region and beyond.” He added that Algeria is still working to “mislead the public,” referring to both the Algerian and international public, through its media claims that the resolution was in favor of Algeria itself.The minister added that Algeria continues to cover up its political, social, and economic crises by creating problems and tensions to “distract Algerians from their real concerns.”He emphasized that Morocco has long called on Algeria to discuss the Moroccan-Algerian border issue, with the aim of reopening the border, regardless of the status of the Western Sahara conflict. Algeria Backs Hezbollah-Polisario CollusionIn his interview, Bourita also discussed Morocco’s decision to cut ties with Iran because of its interference in Morocco’s domestic affairs.  The Moroccan official pointed that Algeria has backed the collusion between Hezbollah and Polisario. He said that some meetings between the separatist front and its Iranian proxy Hezbollah were held secretly with Algeria ’s knowledge.He added that Algeria is eagerly trying to push out Polisario from the Tindouf camps in southern Algeria to clear its responsibility as the country that shelters the “regionally destabilizing separatist group.”On May 1, Morocco decided to sever diplomatic ties with Iran, as Morocco presented evidence of collusion between Polisario and Hezbollah, specifically proof that the “Iran-backed Hezbollah movement has provided the separatist group with weapons and training in the Tindouf camps in Algeria.”While Algeria, Iran, and Polisario denied any involvement, Bourita said in his interview that Morocco “would not have bothered to submit a file to Tehran if it [evidence] was not solid.”“The file was carefully prepared, for weeks, on the basis of information collected and cross-checked over several months,” said Bourita, adding that the document summarizes “proven and precise facts: dates of visits by senior officers of Hezbollah in Algeria, dates and venues of meetings with Polisario officials, and a list of names of agents involved in these contacts.” Bourita added that Morocco did not make any move until all elements were studied, verified, and confirmed.In the document sent to Iran, the minister also unveiled the names of senior Hezbollah officers who have traveled Tindouf since March 2017 to meet Polisario leaders, and oversee training sessions and the construction of facilities.The list of the officials includes: Haidar Sobhi Habib, chief of Hezbollah’s external operations; Ali Moussa Dakdouk, military advisor to Hezbollah; and Haj Abou Wael Zalzali, head of military training and logistics, he addedstressing that Algeria has a hand in the recent tension between Iran and Morocco, Bourita said that the Iranian embassy in  Algiers served as a liaison between Hezbollah, Algeria, and Polisario, through its “cultural advisor” Amir Moussawi.Recently, Algerian activists and officials have urged Algeria to expel the Iranian cultural attaché for his alleged suspicious activities in the country.The animosity against the Iranian official escalated after Morocco’s decision to cut ties with Iran.Denouncing the collusion between Hezbollah and Polisario and Algeria and Hezbollah’s support for this action, Morocco said that the government “understands Algeria’s embarrassment,” especially regarding the documented proof that demonstrates the connection between the parties. read more

Lily Allen claims head of record label took no action after hearing

The BBC said that Allen’s alleged attacker continues to work with Warner. Allen parted company with the label this summer.A spokesman for Warner Music UK said in a statement: “These allegations [from 2016] are appalling. We take accusations of sexual misconduct extremely seriously and investigate claims that are raised with us.“We’re very focused on enforcing our Code of Conduct and providing a safe and professional environment at all times.”The alleged assault took place in the Caribbean, where Allen was working on new material.She recalled: “I had been at a party. He was in a position of responsibility. He’d got me out of this party and decided he wanted to take me back to my hotel. We got to my hotel. I couldn’t find my room keys, so he was like, ‘Well, why don’t you sleep in my bed while I go and get the keys?’”Allen said she had been drinking heavily and passed out. “The next thing I knew, I woke up and he was in my bed naked.” Allen added: “Nobody wants to have the conversation, nobody wants to talk about it because then they have to talk about their culpability and their knowledge… and if their job isn’t to protect an artist, then what are they doing within that company? What are they doing there?” Lily Allen has accused the head of her record label of taking no action after she told him of an alleged sexual assault by an industry executive.Warner Music UK has become the latest company to be drawn into the #MeToo controversy after Allen claimed it had turned a blind eye when they learnt of her claims.The pop star first made the assault allegation in her memoirs last year, claiming that the man attacked her in a hotel room in 2016.In a new podcast for the BBC as part of an investigation into the music industry and the #MeToo movement, Allen said she met the head of her record label – Max Lousada, chairman and chief executive of Warner Music UK – shortly after the book was published.“I went out for dinner with one of the label bosses and he said to me that he had no idea about this incident until he read about it in the book,” Allen said.Asked by the podcast host, Miquita Oliver, if Mr Lousada had said, “Now that we know, boy, are we going to do something about it,” Allen replied: “No.”She said the label had seen an early copy of the book without her knowledge. “They got hold of the book so that they could see what was coming and protect themselves, because otherwise they would have read the book and gone, ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe what happened with so-and-so, are you ok?’ No, that didn’t happen.” Lily Allen performs on stage at Mighty Hoopla She said the man tried to have sex with her, and she jumped out of bed screaming.At the time, she did not report it to the label. “I’d made a decision that I didn’t want to go to the police, that I didn’t want to make a fuss and I wanted to keep it quiet. But I did want to protect myself,” she said.Allen said she felt her career had been damaged “as a result of talking about this stuff”.“People are always questioning what the victim’s intentions are, what it is that their end game is. I think the victims just want validation – they want someone to go, ‘Yeah, that happened, that was wrong, you’re a person, somebody crossed the line with you,’” she said.“And I’m a 34-year-old woman with two children, God knows what it’s like to be 19, 20, 21 in this industry.” Lily Allen performs on stage at Mighty Hoopla Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Rockstar Games officially announces GTA V

first_imgWhat every gamer expected has finally happened: Rockstar Games has officially announced Grand Theft Auto V today.By officially announced I mean they have confirmed its existence and released the logo design as can be seen above. Beyond that there are no details about the actual game.The announcement was made via the RockstarGames Twitter account, which just included the #GTAV tag and a link to the main website. Visiting the site presents you with the fullscreen logo.We won’t have to wait long to see the game in action, though. Rockstar also confirmed that the first trailer will appear on November 2nd. Even if it just shows story elements we should get a good idea of what the game looks like as GTA always uses the in-game visuals for cutscenes as far as I can remember.It’s been quite the wait for this game. GTA IV was released on April 29th 2008, marking a full three and a half years of GTA V being in development. Based on the size of the games you can understand why it takes so long, especially with the visual quality everyone expects on both consoles and PC now.Can we guess at a release date? Maybe Rockstar is looking to take advantage of the quiet summer months next year, or maybe they’ll swing a surprise and launch in the January slump following the pre-Christmas rush.Either way, it’s guaranteed to sell millions of copies on every format and will probably yet again see PC gamers have to endure months of waiting while PS3 and 360 owners enjoy playing the game.More at Rockstar Gameslast_img read more

Mike Leach to be Cougs new football coach

first_imgPULLMAN — Bill Moos, who has vowed to change the “culture” of Washington State athletics, may have changed the landscape of Pacific-12 Conference football for years to come when the Cougars announced Wednesday that offensive guru Mike Leach has agreed in principle on a five-year contract as head coach.“I asked athletic director Bill Moos to select the best head football coach in the country and I am convinced that he has done exactly that,” WSU president Elson Floyd said in a news release.From 2000-09, Leach’s Texas Tech teams featured high-scoring, pass-happy offenses. Moos stressed the need to put “butts in seats” when he fired Paul Wulff on Tuesday with one year left on Wulff’s five-year contract.“I have spoken about the need to re-energize our fan base and take Coguar football to the next level,” Moos said. “I believe the hiring of Mike Leach accomplishes both of those goals.”The Cougars, backed by millions of dollars of added revenue from new television contracts that kick in next year, will reportedly pay Leach almost four times as much as Wulff’s $600,000 annual salary.last_img read more

Harrison Ford Must Die

first_img Since 1983, celebrated actor Harrison Ford has been begging for death… in Star Wars. After Han Solo was frozen at the end of The Empire Strike Back, Ford famously tried to convince George Lucas to kill the character off before the final film in the trilogy. But the gambit failed, and Ford had to waste his time playing a still-alive Solo throughout Return of the Jedi’s entire run-time.However, in 2015 J.J. Abrams gave Ford the one gift Lucas never good, a sweet death. To complete his role as the Obi-Wan of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Solo died at the hands of a fallen student of the Force he once loved. Fans may have cried over this tragic death of a beloved character, but Ford must’ve been thrilled. He was dead, finally! All he had to do was risk dying in real-life after the Millennium Falcon door crushed his leg on set.Why stop at Star Wars? In-between (allegedly) smoking enormous amounts of pot, Harrison Ford is still appearing in a lot of movies. Some of those movies are sequels to older movies he’s starred in, and that means they’re movies he can be killed off in. We can’t let an opportunity to kill Harrison Ford (in a movie) pass us by. Let’s make him the Sean Bean of dying in sequels. Here are just a few suggestions for any filmmakers reading.Blade Runner 2049We just got our first look at the upcoming sequel to the cyberpunk classic Blade Runner. Ryan Gosling plays a new Blade Runner tasked with locating Harrison Ford’s character, Rick “May or May Not be a Robot” Deckard. With a young new star already lined up, killing off Ford here would be a totally justifiable move. Hopefully, he spouts a bunch of nonsense right before he dies like Roy Batty.Indiana Jones 5First off, the world doesn’t need a second unnecessary adventure of old Indiana Jones. Even with Disney in control, it’s time to let this franchise go already. However, the one thing this upcoming fifth entry could do to justify itself is, you guessed it, kill Harrison Ford. Indy already gets into life-threatening danger on a daily basis. Just follow that to a logical conclusion. It’s either that or endure another decade of elderly whipping and snake fear.Even More American GraffitiAmerican Graffiti is the classic film that first connected Harrison Ford and George Lucas. Its nostalgic vision of 1960s California car culture not only spawned a sequel but was also a huge inspiration for the creation of Happy Days. The ending of the original revealed the future of some major characters, including those who died in Vietnam, but the fate Harrison Ford’s Bob Falfa was left ambiguous after he survives the race-ending wreck. That means there are plenty of ways to kill him in a sequel.The Fugitive 2In this big-screen reboot of the classic TV series, Harrison Ford starred as a man who goes on the run after being framed for a crime he didn’t commit. Unfortunately, in the real world, people get punished for crimes they didn’t commit all the time. They get unjustly sent to jail or even put to death. Killing Harrison Ford in a new Fugitive could actually be a great way to teach audiences about the serious problem that is the colossal failure of the criminal justice system.Air Force One TwoBetween Olympus Has Fallen, Designated Survivor, and White House Down, people do sure love to watch the federal government collapse. What a wonderful escapist fantasy. So the time is now to bring Harrison Ford back as President James Marshall… and then kill him to raise the stakes. Make Harrison Ford Dead Again!Regarding Henry 2Regarding Henry is an uplifting story about a driven lawyer who loses his memory after a being shot and rebuilds himself into a better person. It would be such a shame to make a sequel killing off a character who has already suffered so much. But Harrison Ford is in it, and J.J. Abrams wrote it, so there’s really no other option.The Young Han Solo AdventuresHarrison Ford isn’t starring in this prequel adventure starring his famous space rogue. This time newcomer Alden Ehrenreich is doing the Kessel Run or whatever. Still, just because Harrison Ford isn’t the focus doesn’t mean he can’t die. At the very least, the film should include Solo’s death in The Force Awakens, just to remind us how this all ends.
