FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Swanson Lumber Road is closed in both directions at the CN rail cross after a derailment.Overnight Thursday one rail car left the tracks and crews from CN are currently assessing how to remove the train.The rail car that left the tracks is on the Swanson Lumber Road and particularly in the ditch.There is no estimate on when the road will be open.
“These acts highlight the threats posed by criminal groups operating on the border between Ecuador and Colombia,” said the Secretary-General in a statement attributable to his spokesperson.In that regard, the UN chief welcomes the close cooperation between both countries to address the common threat, the statement added.Mr. Guterres also reiterated the UN’s availability to support the two Governments in the areas deemed necessary.The Secretary-General also expressed his condolences to the families of the victims, and his sympathy and solidarity to the Government and the people of Ecuador.According to reports, the three media workers – two journalists and their driver – were taken near the village of Mataje, in northern Ecuador, on 26 March. They worked for the Ecuadorian newspaper, El Comercio.
A trust statement said every effort was made to see, assess and treat patients quickly. But it said “in this situation the long wait for further treatment and assessment led to an unacceptable outcome.“Over the past several months our emergency department has seen high levels of demand, with an average of 400 patients a day attending, an increase of almost 30 per cent on the same period last year. This has inevitably had an impact on our ability to consistently provide a high standard of patient safety in our ED [emergency department].” The trust’s chief executive said the situation reflected pressures being felt across the NHS.Sonia Swart said: “This is a national issue. This is increasingly obvious from all the reports that are coming out this winter. This winter has clarified more than anything else that this is a national issue. We are not trying to say there is nothing we can do about it. We are saying we can do better and we will do.”In the email from the medical director he asked all senior staff to help the trust to cope with “extreme pressure” with every patient in hospital to be reviewed to see if they could be discharged.He said patients should only stay in hospital if the reason was “essential”.The email said: “We need to do more to distribute patient risk through the trust and through the system. The part we are asking you to play is in providing the senior medical review making sure that there are no patients kept in hospital for medical reasons unless essential. I acknowledge that may have an impact on outpatients, etc, carrying a risk of its own. I know you will work with your clinical leads to minimise this.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

He was triaged at 5.30pm and had an electrocardiogram and blood tests. The results of the blood tests revealed the patient was anaemic with a possible cardiac problem and the plan was to transfuse him.Its statement said: “Just before 1am on 8 March the gentleman’s condition was seen to have deteriorated and he was transferred from the waiting area to majors where he suffered a cardiac arrest. Despite the best efforts of our staff in the emergency department they were unable to resuscitate him.“Ideally this patient would not have waited so long, would have been reviewed sooner by a senior consultant and might have been in a hospital bed on a ward at the time of his deterioration. We don’t yet know what difference this would have made to the final outcome. “We have expressed our sincere apologies to the family and will work with them to undertake an investigation so that we can fully understand the circumstances that led to their loved one’s death. The findings will be shared with them as it is important to us that we help relatives understand the reasons for a loved one’s death. Equally it is important for us to acknowledge where we could have done more and to ensure any learning from this sad incident is taken forward.” The death of a patient in an accident and emergency department was “due entirely to the dangerous overcrowding of the department”, the trust’s medical director has said.The man had been in A&E for more than nine hours, and had been found to be suffering heart problems and anaemia, but had not been started on treatment when he suffered a fatal cardiac arrest.The death at Northampton General Hospital on Wednesday night came as the trust was on the highest level of alert.Several trusts this week declared such emergencies as they struggled to cope with a surge demand in the wake of the Beast from the East.In an email, leaked to Health Service Journal, the trust’s medical director, blamed the death on the crowding levels within the A&E department.In the memo, sent to hospital consultants on Thursday, Dr Matthew Metcalfe said:Dr Metcalfe said: “Last night a patient died due entirely to the dangerous overcrowding of the department.“The risk we have all been aware of, but may have felt hypothetical, has just happened.” The man presented at the A&E with stomach pain and was initially seen and assessed within an hour. He was waiting on a chair to be seen by senior staff after a blood test suggested he may have heart problems. He deteriorated and suffered a cardiac arrest before being seen.

For a relatively minor update, Windows 8.1 is looking like it’ s going to deliver a good number of new features. One of them will be a kiosk mode, which lets a system administrator restrict use to a single application running under a single user account.It’s the ultimate Windows lock down tool, and you’ll find kiosk mode with other user account options (account pictures, sign-in options, sync settings, etc.) in Windows 8.1’s settings screen.Whoever’s in charge of a computer running Windows 8.1 can select the account that will be tied to the kiosk mode app and customize its permissions. By default, it becomes a standard account. The only other task is to pick which app Windows 8.1 fires up after booting.Only immersive/Metro/Windows Store apps can be selected. Want to lock the living room PC to Netflix? Go for it. Need to keep yourself from getting distracted while checking your email? Set up a secondary account that goes straight to the Mail app.Theoretically you could build yourself a sort of Windows 8.1 + Internet Explorer “Chromebook” by turning on kiosk mode.Generally speaking, kiosk mode is something that’s intended for use in corporate and shared computing settings — like public information terminals. It would, for example, make an excellent way to lock a point-of-sale terminal in to the “cash register” app and prevent would-be procrastinators from tabbing out and surfing the web.While the hot corners still work when kiosk mode is enabled in Windows 8.1, they don’t actually do anything. The charms bar will appear, but clicking any of the icons merely dumps the user back into the chosen app. Paul Thurrott notes that the only other part of the Windows UI that’s accessible is the screen you call up by tapping control-alt-delete.
Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The Federal Parliament’s Migration Committee has launched an inquiry into multiculturalism in Australia. Chair of the Committee, Maria Vamvakinou MP, has welcomed the opportunity for direct feedback from migrant communities, saying Australia is unique in its diversity. “Some European leaders have suggested that multiculturalism has failed in Europe. The lessons from Europe are important, but multiculturalism in Australia and Australian society is quite different,” Ms Vamvakinou said.The inquiry will examine the benefits of migration from a social and cultural point of view, Ms Vamvakinou told Neos Kosmos. “We’ll look at the diasporas in Australia and try and get an understanding of how they are useful to Australia given their relationships in many communities,” she said. “The Greek community is an obvious one that has active ties to Greece.” The inquiry will look at European, Asian and African diasporas and their benefits on the Australian economy as well as settlement services, and skills shortages that can be addressed by migration. “We’ll be looking at issues and trying to come up with solutions,” Ms Vamvakinou said. She pointed to the highly educated Iraqi population in her electorate.“Many have come with PhDs in sciences and maths yet cannot find work”, she said. University degree recognition and other “hurdles” need to be looked at, she said. “It is time to look at this ‘M-word’ that’s been maligned in recent time and closely tied into racism,” Ms Vamvakinou said. “We need to do something about it in a methodical and thoughtful way.”Racial stereotyping stems from misunderstanding but also convenience, Ms Vamvakinou said. “Scott Morrison and his behaviour and by extension the leaders of the Opposition, racial stereotyping is done deliberately as electorally favourable,” Ms Vamvakinou underscored. She accused Federal Liberal leaders of having “very short term goals – the ballot box”. Over six weeks people are encouraged to make submissions. “We really want to know what people have to say. The timing wasn’t deliberate but it’s just turned out to be consistent with what the government is doing on the issue of multiculturalism,” Ms Vamvakinou said. The Committee wants to hear from individuals, communities, the businesses and service providers. The deadline for submissions is Friday 8 April.

A little more than a week after announcing it was eliminating 111 employees and consolidating positions company-wide, Emmaus, Pennsylvania-based Rodale Tuesday reported third quarter revenue was down 5 percent compared to the same period last year. Meanwhile, revenue through the first nine months was up 2.5 percent.As a privately held company, Rodale did not release specific figures but attributed its year-to-date revenue growth to continued expansion of its Women’s Health and Best Life magazine brands and to revenue from the Flat Belly Diet! and Eat This, Not That! books. Rodale expects to sell more than one million copies of each book by year’s end.“While our advertising is affected by the market downturn, we’ve been able to achieve our profit goals by delivering books, magazines and online products digitally to our growing global audience,” president and CEO Steven Murphy said in a statement. Rodale, it says, saw third quarter digital revenue—including from its magazine sites—increase 22.7 percent over the same period in 2007. Online advertising for its magazine sites was up 18 percent while print advertising revenue was down 1.7 percent.Revenue for the Men’s Health brand—including sales from Eat This, Not That!—increased 10.7 percent during the third quarter, the company said. Advertising revenue at magazine, which saw ad pages fall 14.8 percent during the quarter, decreased 11 percent. Online revenue was up 30 percent.The Women’s Health brand recorded the largest growth with combined revenue increasing 38 percent over the third quarter in 2007. Also seeing growth during the quarter was the Best Life brand (30.4 percent), the Runner’s World Media Group—which includes Runner’s World and Runner’s Times magazines (10 percent) and Organic Gardening (25.7 percent).Revenues were down at Rodale’s Cycling Group—which includes Bicycling and Mountain Bike magazines (-22.8 percent), Rodale Books (-15 percent) and its direct marketing group (-17 percent).Rodale said the layoffs and staffing consolidations were necessary “in order to shift resources toward its highest growth potential activities,” including its online, book and international businesses. Rodale has launched 11 international magazine editions so far this year.

There is no notable Coax input, suggesting that the device is meant to receive TV programming over the internet as opposed to traditional cable infrastructure –a departure from Layer3 TV’s more cable-centric approach.Test reports included with the filing suggest that it comes with 802.11ac Wifi connectivity as well as Bluetooth LE, with the latter likely being used for its remote control.T-Mobile acquired Layer3 for $325 million about a year ago with the stated goal of building out its own internet-based TV service. T-Mobile COO Mike Sievert said in August that the company was planning to launch the new service before the end of the year.Update: 5:30pm: Updated with a statement from T-Mobile. Popular on Variety T-Mobile’s upcoming TV service may be just around the corner, if a new FCC filing is any indication: A set-top box likely built for the service surfaced in a filing made by Kaonmedia, a company that previously build set-top boxes for T-Mobile’s Layer3 TV subsidiary.The box is branded with T-Mobile’s T logo, and is being called the “T-Mobile Mini” in a manual included with the filing. The FCC label of the device still is Layer3 TV-branded.A T-Mobile spokesperson sent Variety the following comment after this story was first published: “We’re hard at work on our new home TV solution, and after launch, we’ll continue to innovate and expand T-Mobile’s entertainment solutions over time.”There’s little to gather from the manual about the exact functionality of the device, but photos show that it features HDMI pass-through, which may be used to incorporate third-party streaming devices or game consoles without the need to switch back and forth between different TV inputs.

Donald Trump HOUSING Trump Administration 2016-11-11 Kendall Baer Share (Editor’s note: This story is part three in a three-part series for MReport on the potential effect of Donald Trump’s presidency on the housing industry. Wednesday’s story discussed the possible effect of Trump on regulation and Thursday’s story covered predictions for what certain corners of the housing market might look like under a Trump Administration)As the reactions to Republican Donald Trump’s election simmer down, attention has now been turned to who the new President-elect will appoint to the critical posts in the cabinet.Speculations are being thrown around for positions such as Chief of Staff (rumored to come down to Steve Bannon and Reince Priebus, according to a report from the New York Times) and Attorney General.However, for those in the mortgage and housing industry, positions such as HUD Secretary and Secretary of the U.S. Department of the Treasury hold high importance for how the industry will be impacted over the course of Trump’s presidency.Busy day planned in New York. Will soon be making some very important decisions on the people who will be running our government!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 11, 2016While it is unclear who will be selected for these positions, speculations revolve around industry and housing policy veterans.“What you get normally from Democrats are people that are more career politicians,” says Bill Dallas, Co-Founder and CEO of cloudvirga. “What you’ll get from Republicans are more people with domain expertise.”For the role of Treasury Secretary, names like Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas) and Steven Mnuchin, former Goldman Sachs executive, have been tossed in to the ring, says the Times.“When Trump’s group moves to the Treasury Secretary, I think what you’re going to see is some pretty high-powered, very experienced financial people who have had experience in running banks and who have experience in the economy itself versus people that have worked only in government,” says Dallas.Speculations from Politico also circulate around the potential for Pam Patenaude, President of the J. Ronald Terwilliger Foundation for Housing America’s Families, to be appointed as the next HUD Secretary.What will happen at the Federal Reserve is also subject to speculation because of Trump’s harsh criticism of the central bank throughout is campaign trail.“Trump’s been very unsupportive in his discussions of Janet Yellen,” says Dallas. “I think the first thing that he’s going to have to do is figure out what he wants to do with the Fed Secretary because they pretty much chart the course for the direction of interest rates. That’s important. It’s an appointed position, but I have a feeling what will happen is Yellen will basically say “I’ll tender my resignation and you can put in whomever you want, or I’ll continue on.”NPR reports that Trump has approximately 4,000 political appointments that need to be filled, with a quarter of these positions requiring Senate approval. They cite the Partnership for Public Service’s Center for Presidential Transition as saying, “best practice generally dictates having White House positions filled by Thanksgiving, and the most important Cabinet positions ready to announce between Thanksgiving and Christmas.”What we do know is the President-elect is currently hard at work to select these individuals. In a recent tweet, Trump said, “Will soon be making some very important decisions on the people who will be running our government.” November 11, 2016 528 Views in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, News What Trump’s Cabinet Might Look Like

Each room has views overlooking the estate, olive groves or countryside.Being a Mediterranean estate, the landscape comprises ancient olive groves and lemon trees, while cypresses and pines share the land with fields of lavender, orchards and 10-hectares of newly planted indigenous grapes.
