KNOE News has more from Jones, including a very interesting quote regarding this decision.Jones says, “I want to emphasize once again that the main reason I’m doing this is that I refuse to ruin the lives of two young men who have spent their adolescence and teenage years, working and sweating, while we were all in the air conditioning.”In the station’s video report on the story, reporter Nicholas Picht says that the DA could not prove who, between Robinson, Jones, and two other men arrested with them, was in possession of the marijuana or the gun, and cited a 2001 case that necessitates a connection between the two offenses.We’ll continue to update this story as more is released.[KNOE]MORE FROM COLLEGE SPUN:The 10 Most Aggressive Fan Bases In CFBIn Photos: Golfer Paige SpiranacESPN Makes Decision On Dick Vitalelast_img read more

first_imgOTTAWA – Canada Post issued wide-ranging new contract offers to its employees Wednesday in the hope of preventing a work stoppage at the Crown corporation ahead of the busy holiday online shopping season, The Canadian Press has learned.The offers included “improvements to pay and benefits, adding job security for rural and suburban employees and no changes to the existing defined benefit pension plan,” the agency confirmed in an emailed statement.“It also includes more certainty and opportunities for temporary and part-time workers,” Canada Post said.The proposals came after high-level talks were held over the weekend aimed at bridging an impasse in negotiations with the union representing 50,000 of its workers.The talks had stalled in recent weeks, mainly over wages and working conditions.Failure to reach agreements with the agency’s 42,000 unionized urban carriers and 8,000 rural and suburban employees could result in a strike or lockout once a 72 hour notice period expires.Any job action at Canada Post this time of year could threaten deliveries of packages to consumers who shop online. Canada Post said last year that it delivered about one million parcels per day during the holiday season — an increase of 20 per cent over the same period in 2016.Canada Post said its new offers acknowledged a “rapid increase in the number of parcels” by including what it called “short and long-term measures to address the resulting workload issues for employees.”A spokesman for the Canadian Union of Postal Workers confirmed the union had received new proposals from the Crown corporation late Wednesday, but said the bargaining agents would need to analyze them before commenting.The counter offers were issued more than two weeks after CUPW issued broad-ranging contract proposals of its own that included demands for 3.5 per cent annual wage hikes.Canada Post had earlier offered wage increases of 1.5 per cent per year but did not provide details on it latest proposals.The agency did say, however, that the new offer for rural and suburban carriers, known as RSMCs, “goes above and beyond the important changes made as a result of the recent pay equity ruling.”An arbitrator last month ordered Canada Post to give RSMCs pay increases of up to 25 per cent to settle a long-fought pay-equity dispute.Not including added benefits that were part of the ruling, CUPW said the pay increase amounted to as much as $13,000 annually, retroactive to the beginning of 2016.In bargaining for a new RSMC contract, CUPW had sought hourly pay rates for rural and suburban carriers equivalent to what urban letter carriers are paid, along with better job security and minimum guaranteed hours.An initial Sept. 26 deadline for reaching agreements passed with no job action after the union said it would wait to see whether progress could be made at the bargaining table.Postal workers have been without contracts since the beginning of the year.The union has said it also hoped the latest round of bargaining would see agreements for both sets of workers combined into a single, new contract.Federal Labour Minister Patty Hajdu has encouraged both sides to continue negotiating toward collective agreements, with the help of a mediator, to avoid a work stoppage.last_img read more

first_imgLondon: A cornered Theresa May issued a stark warning to the warring factions within the UK Parliament that the choice was between agreeing on a withdrawal agreement or risk no Brexit at all. In her latest statement from Downing Street on Saturday evening, the British Prime Minister sought to defend her move to reach out to Opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn in an attempt to break the ongoing parliamentary deadlock over Britain’s impending exit from the European Union (EU). Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USBecause Parliament has made clear it will stop the UK leaving without a deal, we now have a stark choice: leave the European Union with a deal or do not leave at all, she said. My answer to that is clear: we must deliver Brexit and to do so we must agree a deal. If we cannot secure a majority among Conservative and DUP MPs we have no choice but to reach out across the House of Commons, she added. Her latest intervention comes amid a mounting mutiny within her own Conservative Party for sitting down with Corbyn to thrash out a solution, which will inevitably take the form of a so-called soft Brexit given Labour’s preference for a common Customs Union with the EU as part of any future relationship with the economic bloc. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential pollsHowever, the British PM highlighted that it was either that or not leaving the 28-member economic bloc at all and reneging on the June 2016 referendum in favour of Brexit. She said: The longer this takes, the greater the risk of the UK never leaving at all. It would mean letting the Brexit the British people voted for slip through our fingers. I will not stand for that. It is essential we deliver what people voted for and to do that we need to get a deal over the line. In a clear attempt at placating her hard Brexiteer party MPs, May insisted that there are areas where the two main UK parties, Conservatives and Labour, agree. We both want to end free movement, we both want to leave with a good deal, and we both want to protect jobs. That is the basis for a compromise that can win a majority in Parliament and winning that majority is the only way to deliver Brexit, she stressed. May is set for another trip to Brussels next week to follow up on her letter to European Council President Donald Tusk seeking a short extension to Article 50 until June 30. However, it remains to be seen what the remaining EU member countries will be willing to agree to, with any decision on an extension to the Brexit mechanism requiring their unanimous backing. The UK has already sought one extension to the March 29 Brexit deadline and is set to crash out of the bloc on April 12 unless an alternative arrangement is agreed with the EU. British MPs have rejected May’s EU divorce bill three times over the controversial Irish backstop clause and last week’s talks between the two main parties were aimed at trying to find a proposal which could break the deadlock in the Commons before an emergency EU summit on Wednesday. However, the three days of meetings stalled without agreement on Friday. Corbyn has said he was “waiting to see the red lines move” and had not “noticed any great change in the government’s position”. He is himself under pressure from his MPs to demand another referendum on any deal he reaches with the government, with 80 Labour MPs signing a letter saying a public vote should be the “bottom line” in the negotiations.last_img read more

first_imgA horrific tropical cyclone making landfall in the midst of election cacophony is not a good idea. It captures headlines briefly and makes for good politics — who did what and who did not. But the fact is that the impacts of Cyclone Fani, which devastated large parts of Odisha and then hit West Bengal and Bangladesh, have not gone away. It has left behind a trail of massive destruction. But what needs to be acknowledged in this tragedy is that there were far less fatalities than ever before. Also Read – Hijacking Bapu’s legacyThe incredible efforts of scientists, who predicted the path, and the state administration of Odisha — which ensured over a million people were evacuated — deserve praise. The state lost 10,000 people in the 1999 super cyclone. This time, even when wind speeds reached 204 kilometre per hour, the loss of human life was contained to 41. This is no small feat. However, what we need to understand is what Fani means in an increasingly climate-risked world. Every time there is a similar natural disaster, attribution is made to climate change. And every time, there is a pushback, with climate sceptics arguing that there have always been cyclones. But emerging climate models predict increasing intensity and frequency of tropical cyclones. The logic is fairly clear: As oceans warm, there is more moisture and ocean storms will build up to lash the land with devastating wind and rain. Also Read – The future is here!Sceptics will say there is no absolute count, over time, to show that the number of tropical storms have increased. There is some change, but the timescale is not long enough to account the difference. The 2018 Climate Assessment by the World Meteorological Organization found tropical storms in the Northern Hemisphere were up from 63 in the previous year to 74 in 2018; and were roughly the same, 22, in the Southern Hemisphere. So, if you want, at your risk, you could argue that storms will come and go. Why blame climate change? The fact is that there is a big difference, as the India Meteorological Department (IMD) is finding out. These storms have become increasingly and crazily unpredictable. In recent years, IMD had nearly perfected the science of cyclone forecast, but now it is learning, in real time, to change its methods and to advance its technology to keep pace with this erratic creature of the oceans. The first shock was Ockhi — which hit the Kerala coast in late 2017 and took away many lives. Ockhi transformed from a deep depression to a cyclonic storm in a matter of six hours. We must realise then that the failure to predict and warn was not just human. It was because of the unnatural characteristics — never seen before — of such a tropical storm. It changed direction; it gathered steam when least expected; and, became more intense and more virulent at speeds never seen before. One reason for this changing “nature” of the storm, as scientists later found, was the intense heat pockets in the ocean, which changed the direction and speed of the cyclone. This time, IMD was prepared. They used even more sophisticated equipment and improved their prediction models with this learning. But the speed of change is so rapid that this learning of 2017 was already outdated. Fani intensified from severe to very severe in no time; it also made landfall much ahead of schedule. Then, Fani moved inland — it reached Bhubaneshwar — and there it did not weaken in its wind speed. This is surprising as storms need moisture on land to gather intensity and to lash the land with rain. It is peak summer now — a time when ocean storms never hit in any case. How did it move inland? Why? How can we predict in the future? Fani tells us many things: one, we must invest in the science of weather and in our capacity for governance. Two, we must not count the number of tropical storms to conclude whether the world is risked or not. But most importantly, Fani teaches us that the future is even more risked and even more unpredictable than we imagined. It is time we woke up to this reality. There is no time to lose.
