Nova Scotia showcased its innovative collaborative emergency centre (CEC) model to a Cabinet minister from Saskatchewan, today, July 26, highlighting how the approach is helping Nova Scotians receive better care sooner. Saskatchewan Rural and Remote Health Minister Randy Weekes joined Health and Wellness Minister David Wilson on a tour of the CEC in Parrsboro. “This is a great opportunity to share an innovative health-care model that is working in Nova Scotia,” Mr. Wilson. “Collaborative emergency centres are one of the examples of innovation our premiers are discussing. I’m very proud of the positive changes we are making to Nova Scotia’s health-care system.” Collaborative emergency centres keep emergency rooms open, reduce patient wait times and provide a team-based approach that offers continuity of care. This ensures patients can get the appropriate treatment before a minor health issue turns into a health crisis. Saskatchewan health officials recently travelled to Nova Scotia to review the model which they found appealing because of the team approach under one roof. “I am very excited to learn about the potential the collaborative emergency centre model holds for Saskatchewan as a way to address the challenges of health care delivery in rural and remote communities,” said Mr. Weekes. “Interest in this model of care has been steadily growing over the past months, and we are optimistic the CECs could benefit Saskatchewan residents. I am particularly pleased Dr. Vino Padayachee with the Saskatchewan Medical Association was able to join me and I look forward to working closely with other health-care providers as we consider this new team-based approach to care.” Nova Scotia’s first collaborative emergency centre opened in Parrsboro in July 2011, and two others have opened in Springhill and Tatamagouche. Centres have been announced for Pugwash, Annapolis Royal and Musqudoboit Harbour. The services at the centres include: last_img read more

TORONTO — The Canadian dollar drifted lower Wednesday morning amid general U.S. dollar strength.The loonie was down 0.07 of a cent to 91.27 cents US to levels last seen in September 2009.The new year is only two weeks old and the loonie has already fallen 3.1%, making it the worst performing primary currency.The reasons for the decline are many. One is that the greenback has gained in value as the Federal Reserve starts to back away from its massive monthly bond purchases.But recent Canadian economic data has disappointed markets, particularly reports last week showing a rising trade deficit and December employment data showing the loss of 46,000 jobs.The Bank of Canada’s dovish stand on interest rates has also contributed to the fall and traders are particularly looking to what the central bank has to say next week in its next scheduled announcement on interest rates. Governor Stephen Poloz has signalled the bank is in no rush to raise rates and analysts aren’t looking for a hike until next year.“People are starting to get the view the Bank of Canada is certainly not going to be raising rates, but might actually turn more dovish or even open the door to rate cuts,” said David Watt, chief economist at the Canadian unit of HSBC Holdings Plc, by phone from Toronto. “You’re getting to the sell-Canada kind of story.”In fact, some are looking for the bank to cut rates. Mark Chandler, Head of Canadian FIC Strategy at RBC Dominion Securities observes that “there is a significant minority of observers believing that a shift towards an easing bias is in the cards next week and, unless the notion is dispelled, it is hard to imagine the Canadian dollar reversing some of its recent losses.”Traders also awaited the afternoon release of the latest take on the economy by the U.S. Federal Reserve. The Fed has already started to taper its massive monthly bond purchases to $75 billion, a decrease of $10 billion a month, and made further tapering contingent on economic performance, particularly jobs data.[np_storybar title=”Get used to it: Weak loonie is new normal for 2014, analysts say” link=”https://business.financialpost.com/2014/01/09/get-used-to-it-weak-loonie-here-to-stay-for-most-of-2014-analysts-say/”%5DFind out who are the winners and losers as the loonie sinks.

VANCOUVER — Western Forest Products Inc. (TSX:WEF) says it’s indefinitely curtailing operations at one of its mills on Vancouver Island.The company said in a statement that the Somass sawmill in Port Alberni, where it manufactures western red cedar, has been in limbo since February — before that it only operated with a single shift.Western Forest Products, which did not immediately respond to a request for comment, said it intends to offer voluntary severance to its hourly employees at the mill.CEO Don Demens said the company will encourage employees to explore opportunities at its other Vancouver Island sawmills.The company said it is focused on cost reductions to remain competitive, and the decision came amid a lack of log supply to operate efficiently and uncertainty caused by duties recently applied to softwood lumber products going from Canada into the U.S.Western Forest Products expects to increase production at its other Vancouver Island operations to offset lost production. read more

Mr. Annan’s reaction followed a meeting this weekend between the External Affairs Minister of India, K. Natwar Singh, and the Foreign Minister of Pakistan, Khurshid Mohammed Kasuri.

So how are we going to go to a meeting to say yes to this? We have been extremely reasonable so far, we have argued for the upholding of the constitution, held peaceful protest but his Government is doing everything to frustrate our constitution and the timeline imposed by the constitution…no one can blame the PPP for driving this country into a constitutional crisis, APNU/AFC will be totally responsible for this” Jagdeo said.As such, the PPP/C head is urging Government to cease its attempts to hold onto power and to cease its continued breach of the constitution. read more

first_imgThe Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said at least four children were among the dead in regime strikes on the rebel-held Eastern Ghouta region, where some 120 people were also injured.The death toll was likely to rise further, it said.The air raids hit the towns of Douma, Saqba, Kafr Batna and Hammouriyeh in the rebel stronghold region outside the capital. An AFP photographer in Douma saw more than a dozen bodies in makeshift plastic shrouds in a field hospital where medical workers struggled to aid the wounded. Also Read – Nine hurt in accident at fireworks show in French resortElsewhere, he also saw two plastic shrouds opened at the top to reveal the faces of two children, their skin yellow and blood-speckled.Inside a clinic, a young boy wept and hugged his legs — one roughly bandaged — as he sat on a blood-smeared floor next to other injured residents.The strikes came as rebels fired dozens of rockets into Damascus.The Observatory, without specifying whether the raids or attack on Damascus came first, said at least 13 people, among them 10 civilians, were killed as a barrage of more than 50 rockets slammed into Damascus. It said another 60 people were wounded. Also Read – Pakistan Army ‘fully prepared’ to face any challenge: Army spokesmanSyria’s state news agency SANA, citing a police source, put the toll at five dead with 55 others injured “most of them children and women.” Rebels often fire into the Syrian capital from rear bases on the outskirts of Damascus, including at times barrages of hundreds of missiles.Rights groups have condemned indiscriminate rebel rocket fire into the capital as amounting to war crimes.The government, for its part, regularly carries out air strikes against rebel-held areas on the outskirts of Damascus, particularly Eastern Ghouta which is also under regime siege.Today, Amnesty International accused the government of war crimes against Eastern Ghouta residents, saying heavy aerial bombardment was compounding misery created by the blockade.last_img read more

first_imgA breathlessness that has nothing to do with the film’s two chief architects being over 80, defines the narrative momentum of “All The Money In The World”, an uplifting, sometimes sickening saga of greed and lust for power and money, not necessarily in that order. We all know how Christopher Plummer overnight replaced the disgraced Kevin Spacey in the role of J Paul Getty, the American billionaire known to be notoriously miserly even when his own grandson was kidnapped. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe morality tale sucks us into its vortex of avarice and retribution with such virile fluency that we never notice how deviously the narrative flirts with our sense of moral propriety. Is the film laughing at the twisted morality of ‘billionaire-ship’ when Getty refuses to pay up a hefty ransom to get his grandson back arguing that once he pays, all his other grandchildren’s safety would compromised? Or is the narrative mocking the desperate anguish of the kidnapped boy’s mother, played with ravishing restrain by Michelle Williams? Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveI would have looked a more confrontational screenplay pitching Plummer and his screen-bahu Williams. But we are denied the pleasure of high drama for something far more disturbing: a film that questions not limitless wealth but our judgment of the power and danger that such wealth brings.Take it as you wish. But finally this is a film that pays a winking homage to the veteran Christopher Plummer’s propensity to project moral ambivalence without letting his performance dither or wobble for even a second. Watching Plummer own every second of his playing time appropriated from Kevin Spacey, all we can say is, what a journey it has been from the sonorous “The Sound Of Music” to the vulgar sound of money. Plummer’s character and the way he shuns negotiation with the kidnappers, initially reminded me of Dilip Kumar in Ramesh Sippy’s “Shakti” who had refused to negotiate with his little son’s kidnappers.That boy had grown up to be a smouldering Amitabh Bachchan. I can envisage a similar seething destiny for young Charlie Plummer if the film allows his character the luxury of a sequel.Take a bow, Mr Plummer. And you too, Ridley Scott.At 80, Scott directs this kidnapping tale with a swishing delight, hunting down the plot’s moral centre without compromising on the quotient of fun that the characters have in getting here. Barring Mark Wahlberg whose role as a ransom negotiator remains, perhaps by its very definition, ill-defined every actor from the senior Plummer to the junior Plummer (Charlie who plays Getty’s kidnapped grandson) seems to get the point that the plot makes about obscene wealth: it kills the conscience.It can also kill your loved ones in more obvious ways.Either way, Christopher Plummer’s Getty remains unmoved. Wealth has deprived Getty of feeling real emotions. Plummer expresses the dryness of affluence.”All The Money In The World” shows us how absolute power corrupts absolutely and often that power comes from limitless wealth.last_img read more

Airports of the near future will be grandly-designed ‘aerovilles’, with ambitious architecture and stylised interiors. Some airports are already quite cool. Check them out in our collection of 11 of the world’s craziest airport interiors.4. Digital bag tagsLike your Amazon order, you’ll soon be able keep track of where your bags are with digital bag tags.

Digital shopping walls to replace duty-free shopsBrowsing the deals you can’t get ‘cos you’re not travelling outside the EU is one of the few amusements in airports today, but duty-free shops will soon be replaced by digital shopping walls. ‘Transtailing’ – a new form of ‘Transit retail’ – will be everywhere. Some airports (like New Delhi or Frankfurt) already allow shoppers to use QR codes on their smartphones to buy goods. Multidisciplinary studios such as Think Big Factory are proposing that in the future entire large spaces such as the walls and floors of an airport will become entirely interactive. 5.
