first_imgCALGARY (660 NEWS) – As the hockey world gathers to remember those lost in the Humboldt Broncos crash, one of the survivors is doing everything he can to pursue his new dream.Airdrie hockey player Ryan Straschnitzki was in his first season with the Humboldt Broncos in 2018. He had previously played for the Whitecourt Wolverines of the AJHL but before that, he was already on the national stage.Straschnitzki was a member of the Leduc Oil Kings who climbed to the top of the Alberta Midget Hockey League (AMHL) and all the way to the 2017 Telus Cup national championship.His life and the lives of hundreds of others would change forever on April 6, 2018, when the Broncos bus crashed with a semi, claiming the lives of 16 people: his teammates, brothers, coaches and friends.READ MORE: Straschnitzki family adjusting to new life one year after Humboldt crashAlthough Ryan survived the crash, he was left paralyzed, with doctors giving little chance of him ever walking again.But within moments of receiving that news, Ryan turned to his Dad and told him he wanted to make the Canadian Paralympic Sledge Hockey team. That dream has never died, 12 months after the tragic crash.“I try and get in the gym when I can and kind of work on those muscle groups that stand up hockey players don’t work on as much as sledge hockey players,” says Straschnitzki.Ryan is currently training at least three days a week, along with the support of his skills coach, former sledge hockey world champion, Chris Cederstrand. Ryan says their relationship has helped him to press on.“He kind of knows the junior lifestyle and what hockey players are like so we kind of have similarities that way. He also started from scratch when he had his incident so he’s kind of teaching me what he had to do to get better and eventually make the Paralympic team.”While Ryan admits the progress is moving well but there are always days of frustrations, times where he could easily give up, but that’s not an option for him.He’s been encouraged to press on by his family, his friends, coaches and former teammates with the Broncos. He says the outpouring of support he continues to receive is outstanding.“The support has just been wonderful and we can’t thank anyone enough. I think it helps everyone in a way.”FULL INTERVIEWAudio Playerhttps://www.660citynews.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/sites/8/2019/04/05/ryan-straschnitzki-april-4.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.last_img read more

Now we have grown to this amazing event and this year we are expecting 400 guests.

27 September 2007Climate change poses the “greatest long-term threat” to global stability and prosperity, the United Kingdom’s Foreign Minister told the General Assembly tonight, issuing a call to industrialized nations to shoulder their burden in dealing with the problem and to also meet their commitments on aid and genuinely reform the international terms of trade. Climate change poses the “greatest long-term threat” to global stability and prosperity, the United Kingdom’s Foreign Minister told the General Assembly tonight, issuing a call to industrialized nations to shoulder their burden in dealing with the problem and to also meet their commitments on aid and genuinely reform the international terms of trade.David Miliband said the world cannot stand united against shared threats and opportunities when there are so many economic and political disparities between States and peoples.“We live in a more prosperous world, a more peaceful world, a more democratic world than ever before,” he said. “Let’s commit to living in a more equal world.”Mr. Miliband described inequalities as “not just morally offensive; they are also dangerous. Inequality fuels extremism. It undermines support for an open global economy. It corrodes trust and reciprocity between nations.”The biggest threat of all, he stressed, was the impact of climate change, especially on the poorest countries.He said the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) was the only body that could conclude a meaningful agreement on global warming to succeed the first commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol on greenhouse gas emissions.“At the heart of an agreement must be the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities. All countries must take on responsibilities, but these must be equitable distributed, with the greatest action taken by the richest countries. The UK stands ready to play its part.”Although many of the poorest nations were now posting the largest rates of economic growth, around a billion people in 58 countries have been “left out of the story of human progress,” condemned to a low life expectancy because of illness or malnutrition.“Despite progress in some countries, the world is off track to meet its Millennium Development Goals (MDGs),” Mr. Miliband said, referring to the set of anti-poverty targets that world leaders agreed at a UN summit in 2000 to strive to reach by 2015.He also called on the countries of the developed world to meet their previously announced commitment to spend 0.7 per cent of their national income on development, adding that the UK will meet this target by 2013.New trade rules that are fairer to poorer economies need to be developed as well, Mr. Miliband said, arguing that a successful conclusion later this year to the current Doha round of talks is feasible. He said the current arrangements were unsustainable.“Western producers continue to benefit from subsidies and tariffs, particularly for agriculture. Higher tariffs for processed goods prevent poor countries diversifying their economies. This is a bad deal for Western consumers, and it squeezes out the livelihoods of producers in poorer countries. It is neither in rich countries’ financial self-interest, nor is it fair.” read more

The danger arises from the cold, poor sanitary conditions and inadequate nutrition, yet UNICEF’s $93-million emergency appeal is only 64 per cent funded.The ingredients for life-threatening illnesses are all to be found in the camps, the agency reported from Muzaffarabad, one of the areas worst hit by the quake which killed some 80,000 people, injured as many others and left up to 3 million homeless.Makeshift, unsanitary cooking pots lie in the dirt in front of each tent. Poor diets and a lack of clean water have left many weak and vulnerable.”The hygienic situation is fairly deplorable, so I would have to say that water and sanitation is our main priority right now,” UNICEF Health Officer Tamur Mueenuddin said.”Children are malnourished, viral infections are rampant. They begin often with acute upper respiratory syndrome and sometimes the viral infections will include diarrhoea infections as well,” he added.The struggle against disease takes place on several fronts. A vital part of the effort is providing clean water. When the 8 October quake destroyed the water system around Muzaffarabad, UNICEF immediately began installing makeshift water tanks in the camps and digging pit latrines.Education is also essential. Displaced families who had never seen a latrine before are educated about their use. Children are taught to wash their hands with soap and water regularly. These simple things are crucial for maintaining health and preventing more deaths.Training the Pakistan Army in camp management has also become a UNICEF priority. Now, local military officials regularly survey the camps, with an eye for the water, sanitation, and nutrition needs of the population.But as the number of displaced people in the camps continues to grow, so do their needs for shelter, water, sanitation, nutrition, and health care. More resources are needed to sustain and expand the relief effort. read more

first_imgREMA TIP TOP AG has acquired a significant interest in COBRA Group/DEPREUX, a specialist in the manufacture of conveyor belts and accessories for the mining and other sectors. “The acquisition brings new perspectives for cross-industry growth in the field of conveying equipment for both companies….the French company is characterised by its many years of experience in the manufacture of high-quality conveyorbelts.” COBRA is one of the largest companies in the world in the mining business. In addition to the company’s headquarters in Luxeuil de Bains, COBRA has production facilities in France, Poland and China.“Highly specialised belt constructs and rubber compounds, combined with a broad range of services, are differentiation factors in the field of conveying and are seen as being the main key for overall management of transport systems. Given the background of continually increasing demands on the efficiency of modern systems, comprehensive management of conveying equipment is more and more the value driver in manufacturing andmining as well as in preparation and processing.”“Due the ongoing global increase in demand for raw materials and energy, the conveyor belt market is also strongly growing. Particularly in regions with strong mining operations such as South America, Australia, Southeast Asia, China and India, the market demands a strong global full-range supplier with a tailored product portfolio and a broad spectrum of integrated operational services” notes Michael Labbé, Member of the Board atREMA TIP TOP.“The acquisition of COBRA/DEPREUX is an important step in the strategic alignment of our company towards becoming a full-range service provider” comments Patric Scheungraber, REMA TIP TOP Board Member. “Both companies will in the future cooperate closely and profit from the jointly existing service, application and product knowledge, but will continue to operate independently on the market with regards to their product and portfolio policies.”The statement said that thanks to this closer cooperation, both companies will in future be able to offer even stronger service capabilities combined with high-quality products. Customers will profit from an expanded and comprehensive single-source solutions portfolio. “For COBRA/DEPREUX, this is the right way to achieve stronger international expansion of our business. Moreover, REMA TIP TOP has a worldwide organisation and a global service network with an own presence – important for us. We will profit from this” observes Edgar Mansour, Managing Director and co-owner of COBRA/DEPREUX.last_img read more

first_imgRockstar Games is an iconic company. There are few video game publishers who can capture gamers’ imaginations in quite the same way. So when Rockstar speaks, we listen. Today, Rockstar spoke about the mobile version of the original Max Payne. Though the company had already announced in 2011 that the classic title would be coming to mobile, it appears that the release date is rapidly approaching.The news came in the form of a Q&A session on Rockstar’s website. A reader asked if there is any news on Max Payne for iOS, and Rockstar said that yes, it’s on its way. An official announcement will be coming soon, but the game should hit sometime in the next couple of months.Though the question only specifically referenced iOS, we’d be shocked if there weren’t an Android version as well. Rockstar will likely be approaching this in much the same way that it approached the mobile release of Grand Theft Auto III late last year. It, of course, is available for both iOS and Android (at least on select Android devices).This is great news for mobile gamers. Casual games from Chillingo and Popcap are fine and dandy, but you know you’re a serious gaming platform when Rockstar comes to the party. In addition to the GTA III port, the company has released GTA: Chinatown Wars for iOS, as well as a simple music-making game (based on a collaboration with Timbaland) called Beaterator.The Max Payne release is obviously a way to drum up interest for the upcoming console release of Max Payne 3. As the franchise doesn’t have the brand recognition of GTA, the mobile release is an opportunity for Rockstar to remind gamers how much they loved the original, and introduce younger generations to the pleasures of Bullet Time.Rockstar, via Destructoidlast_img read more

first_imgA Victorian man who was shot during the capture of a terrorist in Athens is demanding the Greek government pay compensation for injuries caused by police gunfire. As reported by Neos Kosmos previously, 19-year-old Grant Uranie suffered a wound to his left ankle during a shoot-out in July last year.The incident took place when police opened fire at suspected terrorist Nikos Maziotis near Mr Uranie at a cafe near the Acropolis.In a letter sent this week to Greece’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikos Kotzias, Uranie’s legal representatives, Defteros Lawyers, requested the government pay $25,000 compensation for earnings lost by Uranie and the trauma he experienced.Lawyer George Defteros, who is acting on Mr Uranie’s behalf, told Neos Kosmos: “We hope the minister will come back to us and offer us compensation to be paid to the client for what the client has endured. “We’ve given the minister an opportunity to do that and we hope that he takes our letter seriously. We would like to try and resolve the issue without having to go the added expense and trauma of issuing proceedings. But if we have to issue proceedings, we will.” Mr Uranie spent two days at the Hellenic Red Cross Hospital in Athens, and was discharged on 18 July 2014. Despite indicating that he was in a high degree of pain, following numerous examinations he said he was repeatedly told by Greek doctors that the wound was superficial.“After being discharged from the hospital, the Greek government did not appear to want anything further to do with Grant. The only assistance [he] received from the Greek government in getting home was that on the day of his flight a nurse gave him an anti-clotting injection for the flight and some anti-clotting socks.”Assistance was given to Uranie by consular staff at the Australian Embassy in Athens, who arranged his flight home.“As it turned out, when he came back to Australia, the treatment was obviously inadequate because he had to undergo further medical treatment,” said Mr Defteros.Upon his return to Australia, Uranie underwent surgery leaving him unable to walk for weeks; a situation his lawyers say resulted in his resignation from one of his part-time jobs, along with ending his career as a professional Australian rules football player. Mr Uranie was under contract with Casey Football Club.Mr Uranie’s lawyers have yet to hear back from the minister, who has been given until August 17 to respond, after which they said they “would look to [Mr Uranie’s] other options for recovery, including court proceedings”.

Accusé de “pratiques commerciales trompeuses”, le fournisseur d’accès Internet (FAI) a écopé d’une amende de 100.000 euros assortie de dommages et intérêt. Le tribunal correctionnel de Paris a rendu hier son verdict quant à une plainte déposée en 2006 par l’UFC-Que Choisir. L’association accusait le FAI de “pratiques commerciales trompeuses”.

first_imgIf you can’t get enough of Club Penguin, you’re not alone. Disney’s web-based MMO is huge, with over 12 million registered user accounts. Still, one game can’t hold anyone’s attention for very long so we’ve rounded up a list of games like Club Penguin.Whether you’re looking for a fun, safe (and free) browser-based game for all ages or you’re a kid looking for a place you can game with other people your age, there should be something on this list that appeals to you.Spiral KnightsSpiral Knights is the newest game on the list, and probably one of the most dynamic, attractive, and fun for all ages. It’s not just a browser game: you can download a game client and play locally on your computer, but you can also play using the in-browser Java engine without downloading anything.The game was developed by Sega, and was recently one of the first free-to-play games to land on Steam. In the game, you’re a Spiral Knight, who can use guns, bombs, swords, shields, and other armor to attack and defend yourself in a strange world that you’ve been stranded on. You and the other players can freely socialize and interact in Haven, a central game hub where you’ll meet other players and form the groups that you’ll need to take on the outside world.Spiral Knights is probably most notable because of it’s attractive design, wide variety of armor and gear types to customize your character with, and its really interesting and fun gameplay. Players descend into “Clockworks,” where you and your group have puzzles to solve and enemies to fight off. As you progress, you earn more gear, you earn Crowns (the currency of the game) and Energy, which you spend to get into clockworks or unlock areas. When you run out of energy, you have to wait for it to replenish before you can continue playing.The game survives on micro-transactions, and the concept of energy is n example. Even if you run out of energy, you can spend Crowns in-game to buy more, or you can spend real money to buy more and get back into the action. Aside from spending money on energy and “crystal energy,” (required for end-game crafting and content) the game is entirely free.Cartoon Network Universe: Fusion FallFusion Fall is a free, web-based game like Club Penguin that you can play in your browser, built by Cartoon Network and Grigon Entertainment. The game is a third-person adventure game that allows you to customize an avatar to represent yourself in the game. You’ll encounter characters from your favorite Cartoon Network series’ including Dexter from Dexter’s Laboratory, Ben Tennyson from Ben 10, Rex from Generator Rex, and more.You can choose one of those characters to be your guide through the world, and once you start to level and progress through the game’s content, you’ll meet other characters and go on missions that they issue to you. By completing those missions, you’ll earn your way towards collecting Nanos, or smaller incarnations of popular Cartoon Network characters. As you collect Nanos, you’ll gain levels, be able to go on more missions, and earn more and better gear for your character.You’ll want the help of other players to complete many of the missions though, so you’ll need to work together with others who are playing in the same world.Gaia OnlineGaia Online is more of a massive community than it is just an online game, but there are plenty of ways to keep busy, even if you don’t use the forums. Gaia Online started as a community and portal for anime fans and fandom, but quickly grew into a community where users are represented by avatars they can customize.You use your avatar to play third-party action games, to interact with other users in real-time chat, play zOMG (Gaia Online‘s new combat-based MMORPG,) go fishing, drive your custom-built Gaia Car to race with other players, or play over a dozen other mini-games to pass the time. If you do want to get into it with the rest of the community, you can always hang out in the forums, which has a broad cross-section of people from across the globe, all online 24-hours a day.Gaia Online is free, but it’s definitely targeted at an older demographic than games like Club Penguin or Fusion Fall, and the game has had some notable problems controlling the members of its community.RuneScapeRuneScape is the oldest game in the roundup, initially launching in 2001 as a browser-based Java game that still manages to incorporate 3D graphics. The game is free-to-play, and allows you to customize the avatar you’ll use to explore a top-down 3D world. The game plays like other MMORPGs that you may be used to: you look down on your character as you move through the world, kill monsters and complete quests, pick up gold and items, and level up your character.RuneScape is probably the most traditional of the free MMOs in the list. Where the others tend to focus on the social aspects like Club Penguin does, RuneScape is definitely a hack-and-slash fantasy game designed less to be a social network with gaming attached and more of a game with social features and forums attached.Regardless, it looks gorgeous, it’s free to play, and if you want the some of the experience of a desktop-based RPG without paying for it or visiting the video game store, RuneScape can give it to you. As with other games like Club Penguin, you only get so much of the game’s content for free. Sign up for a paid membership, and the world will open up for you: new zones, higher levels, more quests, new skills, and no ads.Free RealmsFree Realms is one of the first and largest browser-based MMOs. The game was developed by Sony, and is targeted at the 10+ set. The game exists entirely in a 3D world where the player can customize their avatar, go on quests and missions, hang out with other players in dance clubs, play mini-games like go-kart racing and demolition derby, or armor up and go out into the wilds with other players for real-time combat.The big success of Free Realms is that there’s a wealth of things to do and people to interact with. The game has tons of players, and if you don’t like the fantasy-style type of game and would prefer to do professions like cooking or crafting, there’s enough of that in the game that you can do it without getting bored. If you prefer to race, you can do that full time as well. If you’d rather just chat with others, there are plenty of places to go hang out.Despite the name, you can’t get past level 4 in Free Realms without a monthly paid monthly subscription. Once you have a subscription, you’ll get special benefits like monthly reward packs, the ability to access all of the game’s jobs and professions, access to members only items, and more.Any recommendations for networks or games like Club Penguin?

Source = ETB News: L.B. “All authorities involved and several major travel and tourism organisations have put measures in place with the aim of ensuring safety and convenience to tourists while travelling within Bangkok, and to and from both Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang International Airports, during the current ongoing anti-government demonstrations,” Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) governor Thawatchai Arunyik said. As well as additional tourist care centres, increased railway frequencies and shuttle bus services, the TAT has also partnered with Airports of Thailand to provide orange permission stickers for airport taxis, identifying them as tourist-carrying vehicles, which will be allowed to pass safely through roads blocked by the protest campaign. Security personnel are concerned about the increasing levels of violence after gunfire and explosions over the weekend, as demonstrators aim to block main locations throughout the city in objection to Thailand’s first female Prime Minister, Yingluck Shinawatra. Although Thai authorities and the nation’s tourism industry have identified measures to aid visitors during these political demonstrations, tourists are strongly advised to stay away from the protests and affected areas, amid fears the violence may lead to a military coup. The protest violence in Bangkok has worsened, with seven protestors shot and wounded, while thousands more plan to storm the city this week, causing major concerns for security.last_img read more
