BCTF President visits Fort St John to discuss ongoing negotiations

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – B.C. Teachers’ Federation President, Teri Mooring, was in Fort St. John on Saturday, September 7, as part of a northern tour to discuss with local Teacher Associations about the on-going negotiations.Mooring says the Federation had negotiated with the Province during the summer and were hoping to get a deal before the school year but were unable to do so as the mediator made the decision to recess talks in order for both sides to consider their positions before resuming talks on September 23.“We negotiated for 14 days in the summer and we were really hoping to get a deal before school started… unfortunately, we weren’t able to do that and the mediator decided that at the end of August, we were wanting to bargain the long weekend of September, he determined that it wasn’t likely we would get a deal in that time and so he recessed talks and asked both parties to consider their positions and then meet back on September 23.” According to Mooring, the biggest concern the BCTF is currently facing is teacher recruitment and retention, along with finding qualified teachers to fill positions.Mooring says the problem is not unique to Fort St. John but is Province-wide and is due to the low incentive that is being offered to prospective teachers.The B.C.’s teaching salary, according to Mooring, is the second-lowest in Canada, and the lowest when compared to the other Western Provinces.Mooring says the Federation will continue to bargain for improvements to the salary, negotiate a labour market adjustment, and improve student learning conditions.last_img read more

Airlines responsible for their financial performance Prabhu

first_imgNew Delhi: Efficient operations and financial performance are individual responsibilities of carriers, and the government cannot interfere in their day-to-day operations, Civil Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu said amid Jet Airways crisis and turbulent times of the domestic airlines industry.In view of intense competition, rising costs, shortage of pilots and grounding of planes hurting many domestic carriers, the minister also said the government has been constantly responding to industry conditions and cited measures taken, including reduction in central excise duty on jet fuel to 11 per cent from 14 per cent. Cash-strapped Jet Airways has been forced to ground planes, cancel flights and delay payments, including salaries to pilots, while Air India continues to grapple with financial woes. On March 25, the board of ailing Jet Airways cleared a debt resolution plan whereby lenders would take control of the carrier. Against this backdrop, Prabhu said that each airline prepares its own business plan on the basis of its own market assessment and financial resources. “Based on its business plan, the efficient operations and financial performance are the responsibilities of each individual airline and its shareholders. “However, the government has constantly been responding to industry conditions and undertaking specific measures to facilitate and enable growth of the sector,” he told PTI. In written replies to PTI queries, Prabhu said the airline industry is a dynamic industry which requires continuous adjustment according to global and domestic needs. “It is our endeavour to support the industry, however, as stated we cannot interfere in day to-day operations of the airlines,” he noted.last_img read more

Cong likely to be single largest party Singhvi

first_imgNew Delhi: Asserting that the Congress is likely to emerge as the single largest party after the Lok Sabha elections, senior party leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi says a non-BJP formation will get a “comfortable majority” and form the government at the Centre.Singhvi also claimed the BJP will face a deficit of 100-120 seats after suffering losses in various states and will not be able to compensate for the seats lost in those states. “I have no doubt a non-BJP multi-party group will be in power after May 23. The exact complexion and numbers of that need not be talked about now,” he told PTI in an interview. Asked if there is a possibility of a hung Parliament this time, Singhvi said there will be a “comfortable majority” of a non-BJP formation. Also Read – 2019 most peaceful festive season for J&K: Jitendra Singh”I agree it is difficult to say that a single party will have a majority. There will be a very, very comfortable majority for pre-poll and post-poll alliance partners which are non-BJP, non-NDA,” Singhvi asserted. On whether there is a possibility of the Congress being the single largest party, the Rajya Sabha MP said, “Since I think I would be exaggerating if I said that a single party would get a complete majority by itself. I think it is fair statement to make that the Congress is likely to be clearly the single largest party.” Asserting that the BJP will suffer huge losses electorally as compared with last time, Singhvi said a party which had a “Modi wave and a strike rate of 90 per cent plus in 11 states” cannot improve on its performance this time in those states. Even if it comes down by 50 per cent from its previous showing in those states, there will be “no compensatory states”, he asserted. There is a swathe of territory — Karnataka, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Tamil Nadu — where the BJP will hardly have any seats, including its allies like AIADMK, Singhvi said. There is also no compensation available in states from the northeast where the citizenship bill has had a lot if resonance against the BJP,” he said. PTIlast_img read more

The OJ Documentary Shot By Shot

For our purposes, “general archival” included bits such as Simpson’s outtakes with Marcus Allen. “News archival” is news footage from the time period, like that of the Eula Love shooting in L.A. and footage of the trial. “Archival Interviews” include all interviews that weren’t filmed expressly for the documentary, like one with a young O.J. Simpson about his retirement from football to pursue acting. “Football highlights” are self-explanatory and “original Interviews” were filmed for the documentary.You can guess how much of the breakdown goes. Episode 1, for instance, spends 41 minutes on Simpson’s football career — no other episode lingers here for more than three minutes — because Simpson’s fame began on the field. At the same time, the episode focuses on the civil rights movement, particularly in Los Angeles, and Simpson’s separatist lifestyle as a superstar on USC’s campus, away from the movement. To capture moments such as this, we also broke the series down into thematic elements, including personal life, context, trial and football.Here, “personal life” included bits like Simpson’s friend, Joe Bell talking about his childhood. “Trial” consists of archival news footage and interviews from the Nicole Brown Simpson murder trial. Football consists of his highlights from USC and the NFL or interviews specific to his football career. There are nearly 34 minutes of contextual footage in Episode 1, such as race riots in Los Angeles or Simpson signing autographs on USC’s campus, to display the two contrasting worlds during the late ’60s.Episode 2 gives 44 minutes of cultural context, as Simpson’s superstar status blossoms while the relationship between blacks and the LAPD continue to deteriorate. You see his iconic Hertz and Chevy commercials against a contrasting image of the Rodney King beating. Simpson’s personal life also gets around 45 minutes of footage, displaying the rich and powerful friends he sought while he pursued a post-NFL career in Hollywood, and his violent, abusive and controlling relationship with Nicole Brown Simpson is introduced.Episode 3 begins with the murder scene of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. There are nearly 40 minutes of archival news footage and 20 minutes of general archival footage from the double murder and the ensuing trial. The Bronco chase is covered in this episode, as well as Simpson’s own friends saying he was guilty of the crime. This is the O.J. Simpson we are more used to witnessing.An hour and 21 minutes of Episode 4 is dedicated to the trial, the most footage of any kind of any episode from OJMIA. It had 45 minutes of news archival footage and 26 minutes of original interviews about the trial. There is no footage on Simpson’s personal or football life in this episode. Episode 5 gives us the least amount of cultural context — by now, the stage hasn’t just been set, it’s being cleared — with 30 minutes dedicated to his personal life and 45 minutes for Simpson’s civil trial and his robbery case in 2007.We’re used to seeing the post-murder trial O.J. Simpson — a broken-down, has-been felon the world presumes committed a pair of murders for which he was acquitted. A lot of things went into the story that took Simpson from stardom to prison, and OJMIA arranges those disparate pieces of the timeline in a way that, somehow, makes sense of them. By now you’ve heard about “O.J.: Made in America,” ESPN’s five-part documentary about O.J. Simpson’s life and alleged crimes, which wrangles a complex story set against a complex cultural backdrop. Part of what makes the documentary work is how widely each chapter varies from the previous one — the series tracks Simpson’s early life, his football stardom, the murders of Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman, the trial that followed and its eventual aftermath. Each of these is its own sort of story, told its own sort of way using a mix of original interviews and archival footage. Episode to episode, that mix varies a great deal.We took a shot list provided by our colleagues at ESPN Films (we’re in the same division of the company) and broke it down into general archival, news archival, archival interviews, original interviews and football.

Credit: Courtesy of TNSThe Cleveland Browns are taking their training camp south in August for a stop in Columbus.The team announced Thursday morning that the “Orange & Brown Scrimmage” will be held at Ohio Stadium on Aug. 7.“The intrasquad scrimmage is an important element of our preparation for the 2015 season,” Browns coach Mike Pettine said in a press release. “Ohio Stadium will provide a great atmosphere for our team to compete, and I’m confident our players and fans will enjoy the experience.”Pre-game activities are scheduled to begin three hours prior to the scrimmage with a fan fest at St. John Arena, featuring autographs, music, food and more.“We are excited to host the Browns and have them in Columbus,” OSU vice president and athletic director Gene Smith said in the release. “The Browns are a class organization, and it will be exciting for the citizens of Columbus to enjoy this experience.”The Browns currently feature two OSU alumni on their roster: safety Donte Whitner, who played at OSU from 2003-2005, and wide receiver Brian Hartline, who donned the scarlet and gray from 2006-2008.“It’s going to be huge for us,” Whitner said in the release. “It means a lot to me personally because I lived in Columbus, played for the Buckeyes and know what type of fan base is there for the Buckeyes and for the Cleveland Browns. It’ll be special.”After the 2015 OSU spring game broke the all-time spring game attendance record with 99,391 people packed in The Horseshoe, Columbus mayor Michael B. Coleman said he hopes to see the same for a training camp event.“Our entire community is thrilled to host the Cleveland Browns in Columbus at the iconic Ohio Stadium,” Coleman said in the release. “This is an exciting opportunity for Columbus sports fans and we hope to set a new attendance record and continue to show the nation how great our sports community is.”The Browns took their scrimmage on the road last season as well, drawing over 20,000 fans to Akron’s InfoCision Stadium.There is no time listed yet for the game, but it is set to be played in the late afternoon, according to the release.Tickets are general admission and free to all attendees. Tickets for the public will be released June 20. read more

Track and Field Ohio State track teams compete for Big Ten title

Ohio State redshirt sophomore sprinter Kendall Sheffield (middle) competes in the 60m with teammates Nick Gray (right) and senior Zack Bazile (left) during a meet in the French Field House on Feb. 16. Credit: Ethan Clewell | Lantern ReporterThe Ohio State men’s track and field team is striving to win its first indoor Big Ten championship in 25 years while the women’s team is trying to capture its first title since 2015 this weekend in Geneva, Ohio.The 14-team meet has nationally recognized talent with 31 of the 34 events already having a qualifier for the NCAA national championship meet. “We’re capable, we’re ranked highly. We’ve got to show up, it doesn’t mean anything if we don’t show up,” director of track and field Karen Dennis said regarding both teams.Men’s previewNo. 19 Ohio State has some of the fastest times of any team in the conference, which is why it could dominate the 60-meter dash. Redshirt sophomore Kendall Sheffield is coming off a school-record-breaking 6.63 seconds performance last week, which is the fastest time in the Big Ten this season.“We haven’t had one [sprinter] as dominant appearing [in the event] as Kendall,” Dennis said.Junior Nick Gray has the second-fastest time in the Big Ten at 6.66 seconds, and senior Zack Bazile is third (6.68). Freshman Eric Harrison is tied for the sixth-fastest time at 6.73 seconds. Earlier this year, Bazile made the farthest long jump in the country at 8.13 meters.Senior Nick Demaline has recorded the highest mark of any Big Ten athlete in shot put, reaching a distance of 19.88 meters.In the 200-meter dash, Gray has the second-fastest time in the Big Ten at 20.92 seconds. He will run against Penn State freshman Terrance Laird, who lead the conference with a time of 20.79 seconds. Ohio State has a chance to score big in pole vault. Senior Cole Gorski currently has the second-highest jump in the Big Ten at 5.47 meters. Along with Gorski, junior Coty Cobb set a personal record last week with a jump of 5.42 meters, good for the third-highest in the Big Ten. In the 800-meter run, sophomore Alexander Lomong has the third-fastest time in the Big Ten at 1:49 minutes. This time was set last week at the Buckeye Tune-up. His toughest challenger will come against Penn State junior Isaiah Harris, who ran a time of 1:47 minutes.Women’s previewJunior Sade Olatoye returns to the Big Ten championship to repeat her 2017 performance in which she finished first in shot put and weight throw. Minnesota’s Kaitlyn Long is the top competitor for Olatoye to surpass in weight throw.Olatoye has prepared for the meet by working on her form and technical skills, specifically working on her entry. Over the past couple of weeks, she has been working on getting her right foot turned on her first spin along with getting the ball in better position for her third spin.Even if Olatoye beats Long, Minnesota could still outscore Ohio State in the weight throw, since it has four other people expected to score in event.“This is not a time for us to be nervous, it’s a time for us to show up,” Olatoye said. read more
