Canada passes Magnitsky human rights law sparking Russian threats

first_imgOTTAWA – Russia is accusing Canada of causing irreparable harm to their relations after Parliament formally passed the so-called Magnitsky Act targeting the actions of gross human rights violators.But the chair of the House of Commons foreign affairs committee has a simple rebuttal — don’t take it personally.Liberal MP Bob Nault says the expansion of Canada’s international sanctions law doesn’t target one specific country because it is aimed at human rights violators everywhere.However, Canada’s new sanctions regime and those of other countries, including the United States, have been closely linked to the Russian whistleblower, Sergei Magnitsky.Magnitsky died in a Moscow prison in 2009 after accusing officials of a $230-million tax fraud.The Russian embassy has not specified any particular retaliatory action against Canada for passing bill S-226, but after the U.S. enacted its Magnitsky legislation, Russian President Vladimir Putin responded with a law that banned American citizens from adopting Russian children.“Russophobes’ rejoice: S-226 is now approved by Senate, causing irreparable damage to #RussiaCanada relations,” said one of a series of Twitter postings by Russia’s Ottawa embassy on Wednesday.“In defiance of common sense S-226 is hastily signed into law. Irrational act sponsored by fugitive fraudster & tax evader and Russia-haters.”Nault brushed aside the Russian concerns.“Even though this was in honour of Mr. Magnitsky, this is to deal with victims of corrupt foreign officials. This is beyond one country,” Nault said in an interview.“I would say to Russia not to take these things personally — unless you have a reason to take things personally.“That to me is the only approach Canada should take to people who are feeling threatened by legislation that is obviously the right thing to do.”A U.S. lawmaker hailed the formal passage of the Justice for Victims of Corrupt Foreign Officials Act as an important step in the fight against impunity.“The passage of this law also commemorates the activists, including Sergei Magnitsky, who gave their lives to fight for accountability and stand for principle,” said Sen. Ben Cardin, the leading Democrat on the Senate foreign relations committee.“I applaud my Canadian counterparts for this effort and look forward to closer co-operation in the fight against corrupt leaders and human rights abusers.”last_img read more


CBC Allied Properties sign Toronto leasing deal

TORONTO — Allied Properties REIT has signed a deal to lease a portion of the building that houses CBC’s head office in Toronto and plans to spend US$30-million to upgrade the property before renting the space to other clients.The real estate trust said Friday the 49-year agreement includes 168,000 square feet at the Canadian Broadcast Centre. It’s at 250 Front St. W. in downtown Toronto, near the Rogers Centre sports stadium and landmark CN Tower.Allied said the space will be marketed to telecommunications and technology clients due to its proximity to the trust’s property at 151 Front St. West, where a key Internet hub for North America is located.“This transaction will enable us to expand our specialized facilities by nearly 50% with a relatively modest capital outlay,” Allied Properties president and chief executive Michael Emory said in a statement.[np-related]“On completion, the new facility will boost the profitability of our business by enabling us to continue to meet the specific and expanding space requirements of our telcom and IT tenants.”Financial terms of the agreement were not immediately available, but Allied said the lease term will begin on March 8, 2013, with an extensive rent-free period at the start.CBC has been looking for tenants for office space it owns across the country in a bid to generate revenue that would help it cover a multimillion shortfall.Hubert Lacroix, president and CEO of CBC/Radio-Canada, said earlier this week that the TV and radio broadcaster hopes to generate $50-million through various measures that include putting ads on Radio 2 and leasing more than 74,000 square metres of real estate by 2017.The CBC already leases space to Disney and Boston Pizza in its Toronto headquarters.Allied owns several buildings in the neighbourhood that are connected by fibre optic cable to 151 Front that includes 340,000 square feet of specialized space for telecommunications and technology tenants.The trust said it will seek similar tenants after it completes upgrading the space in the CBC building.Allied Properties owns and manages a portfolio of office properties in Quebec City, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Kitchener, Ont., Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver and Victoria.Units in the trust were up a nickel at $28.35 in trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange on Friday.The Canadian Press read more


YouTube puts focus on Canadian creators with globalfirst spotlight channel

TORONTO — YouTube is putting a bigger bet on its most successful Canadian creators with a channel dedicated to promoting local talent.The video streaming platform unveiled “Spotlight Canada” on Monday, a curated page that highlights some of the nation’s standout videos. It’s the first time a country has been singled out with its own curated content section.The debut of the page features a selection of past viral hits, including astronaut Chris Hadfield’s collaboration with the Barenaked Ladies from space, the Tragically Hip performing “Bobcaygeon” in Kingston, Ont., last summer, and a selection of trending music videos from Canadian artists. There’s also a section highlighting indigenous musicians and one for “Canada’s favourite YouTube creators.”Another feature called “Creator on the Rise,” which debuts Wednesday, unearths the hottest Canadian clips on YouTube each week. The selection is chosen by algorithms that factor in view count and subscriber growth.Cast your minds back to Google+ — and know it still livesNielsen tries to quantify the Hulu, YouTube effectYouTube says the entire page will be refreshed each month with a new slate of videos.It’s a pilot project, but Marie Josee Lamothe, a managing director at YouTube’s owner Google, says it makes sense to select Canada as the testing ground for championing homegrown content.Some of the world’s biggest YouTube stars, including breakout creators Lilly Singh, AsapScience and Gigi Gorgeous, transcended the country’s borders and racked up millions of views on their viral clips.“The objective is to showcase Canada’s top stars, but also to help discover emerging Canadian talent,” said Lamothe.“What we want to do is bring a focus to the diverse Canadian voices that create this content.”YouTube says recent data has shown a notable increase in viewership for Canada.In the first half of this year, the amount of time Canadians spent watching YouTube videos jumped by 30 per cent compared to the same period last year.Within that same window, watch time for Canadian channels soared 230 per cent in India, 70 per cent in the U.S. and 60 per cent in Australia.Lamothe says for those reasons alone it makes sense for YouTube to invest more in content from Canada.Google has already opened a 3,500 square-foot facility at the downtown Toronto campus of George Brown College aimed at giving creators the tools they need to make their videos better, like green screens and other high-end technology.“It’s important to promote our own local talent,” added Lamothe. “(This is) a big, fast-growing fan base that is worth supporting.”The Canadian Press read more

Valeants new CEO aiming to restore companys stature after stabilizing it

by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted Jun 14, 2016 6:52 am MDT Last Updated Jun 14, 2016 at 1:40 pm MDT Valeant’s new CEO aiming to restore company’s stature after stabilizing it Valeant Pharmaceuticals chief executive Joe Papa takes questions from shareholders at the company’s annual meeting in Laval, Que., on Tuesday, June 14, 2016. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Ryan Remiorz LAVAL, Que. – Valeant’s new chairman and CEO says he hopes the battered drug manufacturer will one day be ranked among Canada’s most valuable companies just as it was before a series of crises decimated the value of its stock.“I believe that the point of view of being one of the largest companies in Canada is an admirable goal I would absolutely like to do,” Joseph Papa told the media Tuesday after speaking to Valeant shareholders at their annual meeting.“I’m a sports fan and competitive and so trying to get back to a size to where we were before — earnings per share — would be important for me.”Once Canada’s most valuable company by stock market value, Valeant’s (TSX:VRX) stock has plunged by nearly 90 per cent amid various controversies.Papa, who joined the firm about six weeks ago, said restoring the company’s value will be the result of doing a better job providing patients with the medications that make a real difference in their lives. He said the Quebec-based firm has a strong portfolio of products and a pipeline of promising new drugs.The veteran pharmaceutical executive acknowledged that past errors, including its focus on excessive drug prices, caused major distractions over the past nine months.But when pressed by a shareholder for an explanation of what’s gone wrong, Papa said he’s focused on the future, including up to six months of stabilization followed by efforts to revive Valeant’s long-term fortunes.Long-time Montreal investor Philip Harrison said he was disappointed by Papa’s response.“What I’m really surprised about is that there weren’t more substantial questions from people much more important and more heavily invested than me,” Harrison said in an interview.With US$1.3 billion in cash and projected cash flows, Papa said the company will adhere to its debt covenants for 2016 and repay more than US$1.7 billion of debt this year.Additional money will be directed to reducing its US$30-billion debt if the company manages to sell non-core assets, which excludes Bausch & Lomb and Salix, as well as its dermatology, gastrointestinal and consumer products operations.Papa said he’s already been approached by potential buyers and expects some sales can be finalized in the next six months to a year.It’s too early to assess the long-term viability of Addyi, the first pill for boosting female libido, he added. The medication — part of last year’s purchase of Sprout Pharmaceuticals for US$1 billion cash, plus a share of future profits — hasn’t been performing well is set for a relaunch.One candidate for sale could be Egypt-based drugmaker Amoun Pharmaceuticals, purchased last fall for US$850 million. Its sales have dropped by a third and its top drug slipped off Valeant’s 30 bestsellers list in the first quarter.Vicki Bryan, an analyst with corporate bond research company Gimme Credit, doubts Valeant will quickly find a buyer for Amoun and believes the company may struggle to meet its reduced guidance for 2016 and amended debt covenants.Papa has been working to reassure investors that Valeant is on the mend following the year of “major distractions,” including investigations in the U.S. over drug-pricing practices, a board of directors shuffle, misstated earnings and concerns about its debt.He warned that change and regaining trust won’t happen quickly.“People are going to need to see how we perform,” he said.On Friday, Papa bought 202,000 shares in Valeant for US$24.48 apiece, increasing his stake in the company to 2.44 million shares. read more


Pornography is no longer the biggest online worry for parents

first_imgADULT PORNOGRAPHY IS no longer the top concern for parents regarding their children’s safety online.‘Exposure to dangerous people’ is now the biggest worry for parents, a nationwide survey has found.The research, which was conducted by the Internet Service Providers Association of Ireland, questioned 1,000 people, 380 of which were parents (53% were female and 47% were male).32% of parents surveyed listed exposure to dangerous individuals as their biggest concern, up from 12% in a similar survey conducted thirteen years ago.In the 2001 survey, adult pornography ranked as the biggest worry. In this year’s research, it has fallen into second place. The percentage of parents giving it their first concern vote has dropped by over half – from 44% of parents in 2001 to just 20% in 2014.Cyber bullyingAnti-social behaviour and cyber bullying ranked as the third most worrisome issue, with 16% of number one votes (up from 6% in 2001).Paul Durrant, CEO of ISPAI and General Manager of (a confidential online platform where people can anonymously report suspected illegal material), said he was “really surprised” that online bullying didn’t rank as the number one concern.“So many children [are] victim to texting and social media bullying in every community,” Durrant commented.When asked if “the positive aspects of Internet use outweigh the negatives” 64% of parents and 75% of all respondents agreed with the statement. The same question was asked 13 years ago, when 61% of parents agreed.Durrant said it was “notable that these percentages 13 years apart are so close”.In terms of technological innovation and online resources, 2001 is equivalent to the Prehistoric Era of the internet. Social networks as such didn’t exist. One would assume that general usage is very different now – especially amongst children.Parental supervisionOver 40% of all parents surveyed said they do not use any parental control software and three in ten don’t monitor their children’s online activities at all.Six in ten of the parents questioned don’t use parental control software for Smartphones.Despite this, 74% of all respondents selected ‘parents’ as the group with primary responsibility for protecting children online.“Parents could do much more than just be concerned, they need to engage with their children and teach good behaviour on the internet, just as they would teach them for the real world,” Durrant said.The other issues regarding children’s use of the internet ranked by respondents in order of lessening concern were: access to violent material; neglecting offline activities; sharing inappropriate content among themselves; spending too much time on social networks; using location based services; spending too much time playing online games and lastly, exposure to advertising.Read: One in ten students have cyberbullied anotherRead: Child pornography ring used social networks to lure 251 victimslast_img read more

Google updates biometric authentication for Android P introduces BiometricPrompt API

first_imgGoogle is looking for ways to improve their biometric-based authentication features for Android P, their upcoming OS. For this they are taking two major steps: First, Google has defined a better model to measure biometric security and constrain weaker authentication methods. Secondly, they are providing a common platform-provided entry point for developers to integrate biometric authentication into their apps. Google has combined secure design principles, a more attacker-aware measurement methodology, and an easy to use BiometricPrompt API for developers to integrate authentication in their devices in a simple manner. Current, biometric models quantify performance from two machine learning inspired metrics, False Accept Rate (FAR), and False Reject Rate (FRR). Both metrics do a great job of measuring the accuracy and precision of a given biometric model. However, they do not provide very useful information about its resilience against attacks. In Android 8.1, Google introduced two new metrics Spoof Accept Rate (SAR) and Imposter Accept Rate (IAR) to measure how easily an attacker can bypass a biometric authentication scheme. The SAR/IAR metrics categorize biometric authentication mechanisms as either strong or weak. While both strong and weak biometrics allowed to unlock a device, weak biometrics did not allow app developers to securely authenticate users on a device in a modality-agnostic way. This was what inspired the development of a Biometric authentication API. With Android P, mobile developers can use the BiometricPrompt API to integrate biometric authentication into their apps in a device. Developers can be assured of a consistent level of security across all devices their application runs on because BiometricPrompt only exposes strong modalities. BiometricPrompt API architecture The API is automated and easy to use. Instead of forcing app developers to implement biometric logic, the platform automatically selects an appropriate biometric to authenticate. For devices running Android O and earlier, a support library is provided for allowing applications to utilize this API across other devices. Further details on BiometricPrompt API are available on the Android developer blog.

Gross US contractor held in Cuba goes on hunger strike

first_imgAlan Gross, the U.S. government contractor who has been imprisoned in Cuba for more than four years, began a hunger strike last week to protest his treatment by both the Cuban and U.S. governments, his lawyer said Tuesday.“I am fasting to object to mistruths, deceptions, and inaction by both governments, not only regarding their shared responsibility for my arbitrary detention, but also because of the lack of any reasonable or valid effort to resolve this shameful ordeal,” Gross said in a telephoned statement to his legal team.As he has many times before, Gross called on U.S. President Barack Obama to become personally involved in efforts to free him from “inhumane treatment” in a Cuban prison.Gross was arrested in 2009 for distributing Internet and other communications materials in Cuba under a program funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development. He was sentenced to 15 years for crimes against the Cuban state and is said to be in poor health.His case moved back into the limelight last week following revelations about a separate USAID program to undermine Cuba’s communist government with a Twitter-like network designed to build an audience among Cuban youth and push them toward anti-government dissent. While unclassified, administration officials have described the program as “discreet.”The “Cuban Twitter” program, called ZunZuneo before it was discontinued in 2012, caused an uproar among U.S. lawmakers who charged they had never approved spending for it. Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., who heads the appropriations subcommittee in charge of the USAID budget, called the program a “cockamamie” idea during a congressional hearing on Tuesday.Others have praised the program, which they called laudable effort to circumvent Cuban restrictions on Internet freedom. Such efforts help “provide uncensored access to information and communications for the Cuban people and others struggling around the globe against repression, censorship and the denial of basic human rights,” Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, said in a statement.Since 1996, Congress has appropriated more than $200 million for “democracy assistance” programs in Cuba. USAID has been given wide discretion in deciding what the money is used for. Most of the programs are subcontracted to firms like Development Alternatives, Inc., which received a $6 million contract, under which Gross was working.On Tuesday, USAID Administration Rajiv Shah said the ZunZuneo program was lawful and part of the agency’s efforts to promote the free flow of information in the island nation.In a statement, Gross’s lawyer, Scott Gilbert, said the program had put Gross’s life in greater jeopardy. “Once Alan was arrested, it is shocking that USAID would imperil his safety even further by running a covert operation in Cuba,” Gilbert said. “USAID has made one absurdly bad decision after another. Running this program is contrary to everything we have been told by high-level representative of the Obama administration about USAID’s activities in Cuba.”Gross, a 64-year-old Maryland resident, has lost more than 110 pounds since his arrest and is held in a small cell with two other prisoners for 23 hours a day. His lawyers said Gross told them that the “Cuban Twitter” effort “was the final straw for him” and prompted his decision to go on a hunger strike.Even as he has criticized the program that landed Gross in prison, Leahy has criticized what he and others have called the administration’s inattention to the case. In a November letter to Obama, Leahy spearheaded a letter signed by a bipartisan group of 66 senators urging the president to “act expeditiously to take whatever steps are in the national interest to obtain [Gross’s] release.”A separate letter, signed by 14 lawmakers led by Cuban-American Sens. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Menendez, exhorted Obama to continue his policy of demanding Gross’s “immediate and unconditional release.”© 2014, The Washington Post  Facebook Comments Related posts:USAID’s ‘Cuban Twitter’ draws criticism, derision Controversial US micro-blog targeting Cuban regime operated clandestinely out of Costa Rica, angering officials USAID sent young Costa Ricans undercover to Cuba in anti-government scheme, AP reports ‘I’m free’: Alan Gross returns to US after 5 years in Cuban prisonlast_img read more


Cancun Mexico — Reported by Elite Traveler the P

first_imgCancun, Mexico — Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle MagazineOn Wednesday, March 10th, Mexican President Felipe Calderon was joined by Felix Gonzalez Canto, the Governor of Quintana Roo, and other politicos in an inaugural ceremony that celebrated Cancun’s new beaches and officially concluded the destination’s beach restoration project.Cancun’s beaches, which are renowned the world over for their natural beauty and brilliant blue waters, just underwent a $71 million investment that delivered more than two thousand tons of pipeline material and over 1.3 billion gallons of sand to the destination. The restoration has brought back 6.5 miles of sand from Punta Cancun to Punta Nizuc, effectively replenishing Cancun’s Hotel Zone seashore.The project began on September 4th, 2009 and was successfully finished on February 9th of this year. Funding was provided by state and federal governments, local municipalities and private investments. The result? A truly spectacular 131-foot-wide beach oasis.Visit read more
