CALGARY – The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers says it expects crude oil production to hit 5.12 million barrels per day by 2030, an increase of 33 per cent from current levels.The forecast, revised upward from last year’s projection that output would hit 4.93 million bpd, reflects an anticipated rise in production from both Western and Eastern Canada.CAPP says production from the oilsands is expected to climb to 3.7 million bpd by 2030, in line with what it said last year and up from 2.4 million bpd in 2016.Its report comes despite an ongoing decline in spending in the oilsands, which is down to $15 billion this year from $34 billion in 2014.CAPP says the growth in oilsands production demonstrates why more pipelines are needed as capacity is already being reached.
12 May 2010The Security Council today extended the mandate of the United Nations presence in Nepal until 15 September, while voicing concern at the recent tensions in the country and calling on all sides to resolve their differences through peaceful negotiations. The Council’s unanimously adopted resolution on the renewal of the UN Mission in Nepal (UNMIN) for another four months is in line with the request made by the Government last week. The Mission is tasked with assisting the peace process in Nepal, which endured a decade-long civil war that ended with the signing of a peace accord between the Government and the Maoists in 2006.Tensions have risen recently amid an ongoing political stalemate over key issues such as power-sharing arrangements and the reintegration of former Maoist combatants. Briefing the Council last week on the latest developments, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s Representative in Nepal, Karin Landgren said the peace process is at a “delicate and critical moment,” as negotiators work to resolve the current stand-off, and warned of the risks if a solution is not found soon.“The risks grow from one day to the next,” said Ms. Landgren, who heads UNMIN. “This situation should not be allowed to continue, and all encouragement is needed for both sides to deepen their discussion, come to agreement, and resolve the crisis speedily.”Among the outstanding tasks in the country’s peace process is resolving the future of the Nepal Army and the Maoist army and completing the drafting of the constitution by the deadline of 28 May.
1 December 2010The joint United Nations-African Union peacekeeping mission in Darfur is investigating an incident that took place today at Zalingei University in which at least one person was killed and several wounded when gunfire broke out during a demonstration. The incident took place as the Doha peace negotiation team, headed by Qatari Foreign Minister Ahmed bin Abdulla Al-Mahmoud and AU-UN Joint Chief Mediator Djibril Bassolé, was meeting with civil society representatives at the university, located in West Darfur. Once the demonstration began, Mr. Al-Mahmoud and Mr. Bassolé addressed the crowd in attempt to ease the tension. “However, as the party departed, the protests turned violent, resulting in at least one person killed and several wounded,” UNAMID stated in a news release.The Doha team is on the final leg of a four-day visit to Darfur aimed at advancing the ongoing peace process which seeks to end a conflict in which some 300,000 have been killed and 2.7 million other driven from their homes in the past seven years. The visit included extensive consultations with the local authorities and representatives of civil society, including internally displaced persons, nomadic communities and other stakeholders.
In a report on a two-week visit resulting from a request originally made nearly a decade ago, the Special Rapporteur of the UN Commission on Human Rights on torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, Manfred Nowak, made a raft of recommendations ranging from legal reforms to an independent monitoring system. Although he said he could not make a detailed determination as to the current scale of abuses, he confirmed that many of the torture methods alleged to have been practiced on ethnic minorities, particularly Tibetans and Uighurs, political dissidents, human rights defenders, Falun Gong practitioners and members of house-church groups have been used in China. The alleged methods include use of electric shock batons, cigarette burns, guard-instructed beatings by fellow prisoners, submersion in pits of water or sewage, exposure to extreme heat or cold, being forced to maintain uncomfortable positions, deprivation of sleep, food or water, and suspension from overhead fixtures by handcuffs. Mr. Nowak, who visited Beijing, Lhasa in the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) and Urumqi in the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region (XUAR), noted that all meetings with detainees were carried out in privacy and in locations he designated, no request for a meeting or interviewing a particular individual was refused and prison staff were generally cooperative. He expressed his “deep appreciation” to the Foreign Ministry for its great efforts in ensuring that the mission proceeded as smoothly as possible and that his terms of reference were in principle respected. But he said he “feels compelled to point out” that a number of alleged victims and family members were intimidated by security personnel, placed under police surveillance, instructed not to meet him, or were physically prevented from meeting with him. Moreover, in his interviews with detainees, he observed “a palpable level of fear and self-censorship,” a considerable number of detainees did not express a willingness to speak with him and several of those who did requested absolute confidentiality. He also noted that some Government authorities, particularly the Ministries of State Security and Public Security, attempted at various times throughout the visit to obstruct or restrict his attempts at fact-finding and that he and his team were frequently under surveillance. “Under these conditions and taking into account the size and complexity of China as well as the limited duration of the mission, the Special Rapporteur acknowledges the limitations in drawing up a comprehensive set of findings and conclusions on the situation of torture and ill-treatment in China,” he said. Mr. Nowak noted several government steps to tackle the problem both at the central and local levels, from the standardization of regulations to measures against forced confessions resulting in injuries or miscarriages of justice to pilot systems of audio and video recording in interrogation rooms. But he listed major obstacles such the failure to exclude statements made as a result of torture, the absence of an independent judiciary and the lack of an independent monitoring mechanism of all places of detention and a functional complaints mechanism. Among his key preliminary recommendations to the Government, Mr. Nowak cited reform of the criminal law by adding the crime of torture in accordance with international definitions with appropriate penalties and establishing an independent complaints mechanism for detainees subject to torture and ill-treatment. He also called for abolishing the Criminal Law section under which any lawyers who counsel clients to repudiate forced confessions could risk prosecution, ending ‘Re-Education through Labour’ and similar forms of forced re-education of detainees, and limiting the death penalty by abolishing it for economic and non-violent crimes. Special Rapporteurs are unpaid experts serving in an independent personal capacity who receive their mandate from the UN Human Rights Commission.
He described the claims as “clearly completely unacceptable” if found to be true.Simon Douglass, medical director of the London Central and West Unscheduled Care Collaborative, which runs the centre, said: “I would like to reassure patients and the communities that patient safety is, and always will be, our highest priority.”We take any allegations extremely seriously and have launched an urgent investigation. The matters leading to the allegations appear to have arisen earlier this year when the undercover reporter participated in training.”All issues relating to staff conduct are extremely important to us, particularly in relation to patient safety. We strictly enforce our policies for managing staff conduct at all times including whenever we receive reports of inappropriate conduct or behaviour.”We are working closely with the NHS clinical commissioning groups to ensure that any concerns are thoroughly investigated and we have appointed a senior investigating officer to oversee this process.”The Sun did not share their evidence prior to publication and we will be asking them to disclose this to us to assist our investigation.”As an NHS service provider we are committed to delivering high-quality services.” The newspaper reported an alleged conversation with one of the handlers about how she dealt with a suicidal patient. It said the handler told the undercover reporter “she was crying and I was asking her stuff like, ‘do you not really want to talk’, she was like, ‘no’… I put her on mute”.The report also claimed that managers changed the undercover reporter’s time sheets to show he had done more training hours than he had.A Department of Health spokesman said: “The NHS is now urgently investigating and if any wrongdoing whatsoever is found, including criminal actions, we will want to see the police and relevant NHS regulators alerted as necessary.” A patient with heart palpitations was among callers to be hung up onCredit:Chris Radburn /PA The NHS is investigating claims by an undercover reporter that suicidal people calling the NHS 111 helpline are being left on hold until they hang up and that some staff are asleep on duty.The Sun placed a reporter at the NHS 111 call centre at St Charles Hospital in Ladbroke Grove, west London, which provides 24-hour support for callers from 11 boroughs in north, west and central London. The newspaper said it found call handlers asleep at their desks or describing themselves as “busy” on the internal computer system to avoid new calls and new patients.Technical glitches reportedly ended with one handler hanging up on at least three patients, including one with heart palpitations.Workers were told to tell callers they were experiencing technical failures when they may have been struggling to work the system, according to The Sun.

Former Sheffield Wednesday club secretary Graham Mackrell, 68, sitting in the well of the court, pleaded not guilty to one charge of contravening a term or condition of the stadium’s safety certificate and one health and safety offence.About 15 family members were in court for the hearing.A provisional trial date for both men has been set for January 14.In June, judge Sir Peter Openshaw lifted a historical stay – halting further legal proceedings – on Duckenfield, which was put in place in 2000. David Duckenfield, the Hillsborough match commander, has pleaded not guilty to the manslaughter by gross negligence of 95 Liverpool supporters.The former chief superintendent, 74, appeared via videolink at Preston Crown Court on Monday morning.Wearing a suit with a blue shirt and purple tie, Mr Duckenfield spoke only to confirm his name and enter his plea.The names of 95 men, women and children who died following the crush in the terrace pens of Sheffield Wednesday’s ground at the FA Cup semi-final on April 15 1989 were read out in court as the charge was put to him.Under the law at the time, there can be no prosecution for the death of the 96th victim, Tony Bland, as he died more than a year and a day after his injuries were caused.

These days, figuring out how to get past a difficult portion of a game is an easy matter thanks to the internet. Numerous game FAQs and walkthrough videos can help gamers get out of just about any kind. Things weren’t as easy back in the late 80’s and early 90’s, but gamers weren’t completely left to fend for themselves. Magazines like Nintendo Power and others contained strategy guides for many of the most popular games. There was even a Nintendo hotline that kids could call in order to get more in-depth help from an actual person.The people on the other end of these calls were known as Nintendo Game Counselors. These folks were armed not only with first-hand knowledge of games, but also an over-sized guide filled with hundreds of pages worth of notes from a variety of titles. This book isn’t something that was released to the public, but a copy of one of the guides, along with an employee manual, were recently discovered in Seattle. The books were lent to YouTuber, Metal Jesus Rocks, who showed off some of what’s inside.Even though this was a professional guide used by Nintendo Counselors, it was mostly handcrafted by Nintendo employees themselves. Some pages contain images from official strategy guides, but most of the counselor guide consists of hand-drawn images of maps and game characters. There are several notes written by hand and signed by certain employees. Though the guide was meant to help the counselor, the book itself constantly emphasizes that it is best for employees to play through the games themselves and to master them. They also encourage the counselor to have fun while playing.The video also shows an employee manual from 1989, but this book is decidedly not as interesting as the counselor guide since it contains a lot of what can be found in the employee manuals of most big corporate tech companies. However, it does have a section that outlines the corporate hierarchy of Nintendo of America in great detail. It lists every person that worked at NOA at the time and in what section or division they were in.This is certainly a great find that gives us an insight into what being a Nintendo Game Counselor was all about back in the day. Make sure to check out the entire video in this post to see some of the cool things found inside the counselor guide.

A candidate for Camas mayor was fired as a city employee in June following a series of disruptive incidents, including threatening outbursts and a doodling of a “gory” sketch on his desk, according to public documents obtained Thursday.Ken Kakuk, 51, had been disciplined prior to his June termination. Following a 12-day suspension in late May, he was asked to undergo a mental exam to ensure he was fit to return to work, the documents show. He complied and went to the mental exam, but refused to answer questions from a psychologist, according to Kakuk’s discipline file.Because the mental exam was a requirement of a last-chance agreement between Kakuk and the city, the 16-year employee was fired. The city cited insubordination as the reason for the termination.Kakuk, who was the city’s GIS coordinator, in charge of mapping data and services, is running to unseat Camas Mayor Scott Higgins in the Nov. 8 general election. He filed for the office June 9, seven days before he received his termination notice. His termination was effective June 20.When reached Thursday for comment, Kakuk said he is running for mayor mostly because he wants to see changes in government and had considered running several times in previous years. Still, he conceded his personal troubles factored in, saying he wants to “make sure other people were treated well.”
Sedans 2020 Volkswagen Passat: Almost all-new We last saw a new Volkswagen Passat eight years ago, a relative eternity in the automotive world. On Monday at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show, VW introduces a heavy refresh of its midsize sedan. I refrain from saying “all-new,” simply because, aside from its updated design, the Passat’s powertrain and technology remain largely unchanged. Enlarge ImageA new grille dominates the 2020 Volkswagen Passat’s front fascia. Volkswagen The 2020 Passat has a more rakish roofline and the grille is wider, with slimmer LED headlamps. The LED taillights are reshaped as well, and Volkswagen has added quad exhaust tips. While 17-inch wheels are standard, drivers can move up to 18- or 19-inch wheels, depending on model. The Passat has always had plenty of interior room, and thankfully, that hasn’t changed. V-Tex leatherette or Nappa leather are both available and the interior comes in your choice of four colors. Heated front and rear seats are available, as well. Volkswagen reading • 2020 Volkswagen Passat refresh focuses on style Detroit Auto Show 2019 Feb 4 • 2020 Kia Telluride: Detroit Auto Show debut turns Super Bowl ad star Feb 7 • Chevy’s full-scale Lego Silverado is plastic fantastic in Chicago As with the 2019 model, the Passat comes standard with forward collision warning and emergency braking, now with a new pedestrian monitoring system. Also standard is blind-spot monitoring and rear traffic alert, but adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist are both optional. A new Parking Steering Assist can automatically guide the Passat into a tricky parallel or perpendicular parking spot. Volkswagen’s aging MIB II infotainment system comes on a new glass-covered touchscreen. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are both standard and a premium Fender stereo system is available. Unfortunately, because the Passat doesn’t move to Volkswagen’s scalable MQB platform, you can’t have it with the company’s excellent Digital Cockpit gauge display. Enlarge ImageThe Passat’s interior remains as roomy as it ever was. Volkswagen The Passat will still be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, good for 174 horsepower. The good news is that a new torque converter and tuning ups the torque from 184 to 207 pound-feet of twist for 2020. The Passat puts power to the front wheels only, with a six-speed automatic transmission. When much of the competition sports an eight-speed transmission — heck, even the company’s own Jetta compact sedan has eight gears — the choice to not upgrade the gearbox is curious. Pricing has not yet been announced, but the 2020 Volkswagen Passat will be available in the summer of 2019. Detroit Auto Show: See all the latest coverage.

Should you be worried?It’s hard to say. Patients have reported vaping products that contain a variety of substances, including nicotine and THC, as well as using do-it-yourself “home brews,” finds the Washington Post. At this time, health officials are unsure whether the lung issues stem from the e-cigarette devices or one or more ingredients commonly found in vape juice. “While some cases in each of the states are similar and appear to be linked to e-cigarette product use, more information is needed to determine what is causing the illnesses,” says the CDC. At least one Wisconsin man who was hospitalized had purchased tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) oil on the street, according to news reports. Canva The American Vaping Association is skeptical that traditional vape products are at fault. “With approximately 10 million adults vaping nicotine each month without major issue, it appears much more likely that the products causing lung damage contain THC or illegal drugs, not nicotine,” an AVA spokesperson told CBS News.But health experts like Anne Griffiths, MD, a pediatric lung specialist who saw all four of the reported cases in Minnesota, aren’t so sure. “My sense is this isn’t new,” she told the Associated Press. “It’s new that we’re recognizing it. I really do think the primary cause of these illnesses is what’s been inhaled.”Currently, no one device or cartridge is associated with the reported cases of lung disease. When estimating the scope of the problem, health officials are only counting certain lung illnesses in which the person reports having vaped within three months. Most of the illnesses under investigation involve teens and young adults, a population in which e-cigarette use has skyrocketed: 78% among high school students and 49% among middle school students between 2017 and 2018, according to the CDC. As of 2018, more than 3.6 million U.S. youth, including 1 in 5 high school students and 1 in 20 middle school students, report using e-cigarettes. The suspected link to vaping is more bad news for an industry that’s already under fire for targeting teens. In an email to Reuters, industry-leader Juul Labs said, “Like any health-related events reportedly associated with the use of vapor products, we are monitoring these reports.” As the investigation progresses, the CDC is asking clinicians to report possible cases of unexplained vaping-related pulmonary illness to their state or local health department. And in a statement last week, Wisconsin Department of Health Services Secretary-designee Andrea Palm strongly urged “people to avoid vaping products and e-cigarettes. Anyone — especially young people who have recently vaped — experiencing unexplained breathing problems should see a doctor.”Read more: Why vaping could give you cavitiesWhat we know about vaping and respiratory healthE-cigarettes have only been available in the US for a little over a decade and, during that time, have gone largely unregulated by the Food and Drug Administration. As a result, there’s a huge amount of variability in the market. Together, these two things make it difficult to draw definitive conclusions about the respiratory effects of vaping. That said, here’s what we know so far: E-cigarette aerosol generally contains fewer toxic chemicals than tobacco cigarettes and are considered safer in many respects, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But vaping is not without respiratory risks — especially in people who have no prior history of smoking. When the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine analyzed all the available research on the public health consequences of e-cigarettes — more than 800 peer-reviewed studies — it concluded that, “studies examining the long-term effects of e-cigarettes on the development of chronic respiratory symptoms are completely lacking due to the newness of the product.” The jury is still out on whether vaping causes lung disease, but early research points to potential other problems. Canva However, it did find “conclusive evidence that in addition to nicotine, most e-cigarette products contain and emit numerous potentially toxic substances” like acetaldehyde, acrolein, diacetyl and formaldehyde, which have all been linked to lung disease. And that exposing lungs to these substances could potentially damage the respiratory system or worsen pre-existing lung disease. Although NASEM was unable to identify any research on whether or not vaping causes respiratory diseases, it did find moderate evidence of a link between vaping and increased coughing and wheezing in teens, as well as an increase in asthma exacerbations.Bottom line: There are still a lot of unknowns, but preliminary research — and the lack of federal oversight — has health organizations like the American Lung Association concerned. “The e-cigarettes currently in the US marketplace have not been systemically reviewed by the FDA to determine their impact on lung health,” the ALA says. “While much remains to be determined about the lasting health consequences of these products, the ALA is very troubled by the evolving evidence about the impact of e-cigarettes on the lungs.”Read more: How to quit Juuling, according to addiction experts The information contained in this article is for educational and informational purposes only and is not intended as health or medical advice.

Canva Health concerns over vaping intensify after state and federal health officials report that 153 people — many of them young adults — across 16 states have been treated for suspected vaping-related respiratory issues. Most of the patients admitted to a hospital have reported similar symptoms, including coughing, shortness of breath and fatigue that worsened over time. Some patients also reportedly experienced fever, chest pain, nausea and diarrhea. (The FDA is also investigating 120-plus reports of seizures after vaping. Check out this timeline of recent Juul and vaping controversies.)In Minnesota, some of these individuals had to be hospitalized for multiple weeks, including stints in the intensive care unit. An 18-year-old man in Florida suffered a collapsed lung after vaping. One Wisconsin man in his 20s even had to be placed in a medically induced coma. It’s unclear at this time whether all patients will fully recover.In a statement issued over the weekend, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that officials are working with the departments of health in California, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota and Wisconsin to investigate these “severe” pulmonary illnesses. Additional states have notified the CDC of more possible cases and investigations are ongoing. According to the CDC, says “there is no conclusive evidence that an infectious disease is causing the illnesses.”Read more: Why vaping is so addictive, according to doctors Wellness Now playing: Watch this: 2 Tags Comments Share your voice
One of the more annoying features Nintendo has added to the 3DS and 2DS handhelds is region locking. So if a publisher decides not to release a game in your territory, the only way to play it is to import the game and a 2DS/3DS from that territory. It’s infuriating, but it now looks as though the problem has been solved, and solved legally.The solution is called Regionthree, and it consists of a single file and a visit to a website through your handheld browser. All you have to do is download a Launcher.dat file on to the root of your SD card. Then put your out-of-region game of choice into your handheld, open Download Play, return to the Home screen without closing the app, then open the web browser and visit the exploit web page. After a couple of minutes of the screens being blank the game will load and play.You can see the exploit in action below:You aren’t hacking your 3DS hardware in anyway, and you aren’t downloading any illegal software as far as I can tell. The exploit also works on the latest version of the firmware. One downside is that you need to connect to the Internet every time you want to run an out-of-region game, however, this can be made less painful by using the Go! Gateway Android app, which replaces the need for a working connection. It also means if the exploit page goes down you aren’t stuck.Right now Regionthree works on all 2DS and 3DS hardware except the New 3DS and New 3DS XL. It seems unlikely it will unless someone starts working on an update, so you may want to hold on to the older hardware if you are thinking of upgrading. Nintendo may not react to this exploit because it doesn’t allow copied games to be played, just unlocks the region. But there’s no guarantee they won’t close the hole with the next firmware patch.
