TD CEO says bank would consider cannabis sector financings once legal

first_imgTORONTO – TD Bank would consider participating in cannabis sector financings after recreational marijuana becomes legal in Canada later this year, said its chief executive Thursday.Bharat Masrani said to reporters after their annual meeting of shareholders that the Toronto-based bank views the federal legalization of pot for adult use as an “important data point.”Any potential cannabis client would be assessed on its merits but the bank would have to ensure that it did not have a presence in the U.S., where marijuana remains illegal on a federal level, he said.“If it’s against the law, we will not of course be in that business. In Canada, it’s changing, and we will look at it greater detail,” Masrani said. “And where appropriate, we will see what we can do for some of our clients.”The bank is continuing to study the industry to determine what are the key risks that the bank has to mitigate, he said.Canada’s largest banks had largely steered clear of the country’s cannabis sector until January, when Bank of Montreal co-led a $175 million bought deal financing for licensed producer Canopy Growth.Canopy, Canada’s largest licensed producer, does not have any exposure to the U.S. market.While cannabis for recreational or medical use is legal in several states, such as California and Colorado, it is classified as an illegal schedule 1 drug under U.S. federal law.As Canada prepares for national legalization of the drug, the Trump administration is taking a harder line on cannabis than its predecessor.In January, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions rescinded an Obama-era memo which suggested that the federal government would not intervene in states where the drug is legal. Instead, Sessions said it would be up to federal prosecutors in states where the drug is legal to decide how aggressively to enforce the law.last_img read more

Court rules Canadas TV regulator exceeded its authority with restrictions on Bell

first_imgTORONTO – Bell Canada and its media arm have won a round in their battle against regulatory restrictions on their activities as television content producers and distributors.The Federal Court of Appeal has issued a 2-1 split decision that agrees with Bell’s argument that the Broadcasting Act doesn’t give the CRTC authority to enforce its “wholesale code.”The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission introduced the code in 2015 after extensive public consultations, known as Let’s Talk TV, that resulted in a number of reforms for regulated media companies.Soon after the code was issued, Bell launched the court challenge to the CRTC’s restrictions on how distributors like phone, cable and satellite companies negotiate contracts with content producers.The CRTC had introduced the restrictions out of a concern about the increasing market power of vertically integrated companies, such as Bell, that both create programming and distribute it to consumers.Bell Canada owns the country’s largest telecom network, including residential television and internet services, as well as Bell Media — which owns the CTV television network, specialty TV channels and production facilities.Companies in this story: (TSX:BCE)last_img read more

SP going soft on Cong PM

first_imgPratapgarh (UP): Prime Minister Narendra Modi Saturday accused the Samajwadi Party of going soft on the Congress, implying a rift in the SP-BSP opposition alliance against the BJP in Uttar Pradesh.Addressing a BJP rally here, Modi said while the Bahujan Samaj Party leader Mayawati is attacking the Congress, a Congress leader is sharing the stage with the SP. The apparent reference was to Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s presence at a Samajwadi Party meeting in Rae Bareli on Thursday. Also Read – 2019 most peaceful festive season for J&K: Jitendra Singh”The SP is going soft on the Congress, but its alliance partner BSP chief Mayawati is attacking the Congress,” he said. Modi said the Congress has been reduced to the status of ‘vote katwa’ party for cutting the votes of other parties and it will soon witness its downfall. Attempting to draw a wedge in the SP-BSP-RLD alliance, Modi claimed that BSP chief Mayawati has understood that the SP and the Congress are playing a “big game” with her. “Now, this is clear that the SP has derived mileage from Mayawati through the gathbandhan. She was kept in dark. There were talks about respect. It was said that you (Mayawati) will be made the prime minister, but now Behenji has understood that the SP and the Congress are playing a big game with her,” he said.

Accusing the Congress and its president of attempting to tarnish his image over the Rafale issue, he took a jibe at former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi. “Your father was termed ‘Mr Clean’ by his courtiers, but his life ended as ‘Bhrastachari number 1’ (corrupt number 1),” Modi said. He claimed that the Congress chief had admitted in a interview that his only aim is to tarnish the image of Modi. “By hurling abuses, you cannot dissolve the 50-long year of Modi’s tapasya (struggle) in dust,” the prime minister said. “By tarnishing my image and by making me small, these people want to make an unstable and a weak government in the country,” he added. Modi said “only the BJP can give a stable government ” as he led the gathering chanting “phir ek baar…Modi sarkar (once again, Modi government)”.last_img read more

Police detain 5 for critically endangered eel smuggling

Police in North Macedonia say they have detained five men, including two Chinese citizens and a customs official, on suspicion of smuggling a critically endangered species of eel.Police said Thursday that four of the suspects allegedly purchased 60 kilograms (132 pounds) of juvenile European eels, known as glass eels, with estimated value of 120,000 euros ($135,000), in Bulgaria for a buyer in Malaysia.The European eel is classified as critically endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.Authorities discovered the live cargo hidden in a car in which the four were travelling during a routine highway control. Police say the eels were to be flown from Skopje’s international airport to Kuala Lumpur. The customs official is accused of granting the four a free pass from Bulgaria into North Macedonia.The Associated Press read more

Apple to replace Google Maps in iOS 6

first_imgIn Apple’s recent release of iPhoto for iOS the company took a major step forward in what seems to be a long time goal: they replaced Google Maps. In iPhoto, Cupertino chose to go with Open Street Map, an open data mapping project that is free for use, with attribution and adherence to certain guidelines. The next question is when will Apple move away from Google Maps on other services, particularly the iPhone’s Maps app. Rumor has it that the switchover could happen with the release of iOS 6 and that the move to an in-house mapping solution could bring along some major perks, including a 3D mode.While it’s far from confirmed, the jump to another mapping app isn’t a far-fetched one. In the past Apple has gobbled up a number of smaller firms who were working on mapping technology, including Poly9, Placebase, and C3 Technologies. Plus we know that there are a number of reasons why Apple hates Google Maps and that it’s been Apple intention to take their maps to the next level.Based on the rumor, it seems like the C3 Technologies acquisition was crucial to this move. They where a 3D mapping company that Apple picked up last year, whose technology enabled rapid 3D mapping. (You can see the video explainer at the bottom.)The 3D effect is possible without a a 3D display, as it’s just visual trick (as the video above makes clear). When in aerial view each of the map’s pixels is said to have depth information associated with it. This enables the calculation of viewing angles and perspective. It’s a ultimately a parlor trick… but a very good one. Apple will need a way to replace Street View as well, which it apparently has.If the rumor turns out to be true it looks like Apple’s vision for their future maps will be coming to fruition some time this year. Expect to see a new logo, new mapping data, and improved performance once everything rolls out.We should learn more at Apple’s WWDC this summer.More at 9to5maclast_img read more

Death of Mayors aunt sparks call for safer crossing

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Kingston Mayor Arthur Athanasopoulos has vowed to campaign for a safer crossing at the railway line at Centre Road, Clayton after his aunt was hit and killed by an oncoming train on April 1. Fotoula Apostototoulos, 81, was crossing the railway line on the way to the shops and because one train had passed, she thought it was safe and proceeded to cross.“But a train coming the other way hit her and her life was tragically cut short,’’ said Athanasopoulos. “From a family perspective we are all devastated and saddened with the loss but hopefully through my role on the council, I can do something about it to lessen the chances of this happening to someone else”.Athanasopoulos said that he immediately wrote to the Transport minister Lynne Kosky to raise his concerns.“At the moment there are no safety or boom gates, just an enclosed barrier which allows you to walk through in a staggered manner. There have been a number of cases of death or injury in this location and we have highlighted this before with the transport minister and we want to emphasise again that what is really needed are lights and boom gates at that crossing.” He goes on to say that, “We would also like to highlight the urgency for all levels of Government to put in safety measures, not just at crossings but at intersections where there is a lot of traffic.” However a Victoria Government spokesperson said that while they are deeply concerned about any railway crossing incident,  the crossing on Centre Road has not been identified as being a high priority for upgrading.Athanasopoulos believes that the safety measures he proposes also apply to the Clayton South shopping strip on Centre Road where an elderly Greek woman, Ms Anna Tsavasilis, 79, was killed in August last year while on her way to the church.Residents and traders have campaigned for pedestrian traffic lights at the Centre Road strip since 2000, which intensified into a petition following Ms Tsavasilis’s death, and the relocation of the pedestrian lights near Frank Avenue (closer to the church) to Cooke Street last year. While their requests for a pedestrian traffic light installation on Knight Street were temporarily appeased in November last year by a VicRoads announcement to install a pedestrian crossing, residents and traders have not received a response on the progress of negotiations thus far. Harry’s Factory Outlet owner, Toula Laspas said she felt let down by the lack of communication between the responsible authorities and the community. “They (VicRoads) were meant to meet this month with the council and send a proposal to the shopkeepers but we’ve heard nothing,” said the anguished woman. “I don’t know how many more accidents have to happen. I’m sick of calling 000 all the time and with the Greek Easter period, which will make the strip even more congested, it’s a death trap.” Yet when contacted a second time, Mayor Athanasopoulos confirmed that the consultation process has commenced, following discussions between the Monash Council offices and VicRoads.“Residents will be sent a letter in about two weeks informing them of the proposed location and will be invited to make comments. VicRoads plan to proceed with the installation following the public consultation process”.last_img read more

Opérations de nettoyage des plages dEurope

L’objectif : débarrasser les plans d’eau des déchets qui les polluent. À lire aussiUne tortue surprise à creuser son nid au milieu des déchets sur une plage de TaïwanBrice Chollon, responsable de l’antenne Surfrider en Gironde, indique à 20 qu’ “il s’agit surtout d’une opération de sensibilisation pour inciter les gens à trier leurs déchets et à moins consommer”.  Une problématique récurrente qui pousse les communes à puiser chaque année dans leur budget annuel pour entretenir les plages. A titre d’exemple, 77% du budget du Porge entre 2008 et 2010 ont été consacré à l’entretien. Pour autant, la quantité de déchets ramassés est toujours la même. Sur un an, celle-ci s’élève à 45 tonnes sur 13 km de littoral et 56 tonnes sur le parking. Même si le nettoyage est effectué par les communes, les cribleuses qui se chargent de la tâche peuvent avoir des impacts négatifs sur l’environnement. Brice Chollon souligne : “Les cribleuses détruisent le milieu naturel et favorisent l’érosion, nous privilégions le ramassage manuel”.  Le 25 mars 2011 à 14:33 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Réchauffement des anciens de la NASA remettent en cause son origine humaine

first_imgRéchauffement : des anciens de la NASA remettent en cause son origine humaineL’origine humaine de l’accélération du réchauffement de la planète est aujourd’hui admise par la majeure partie de la communauté scientifique. Mais certaines organisations, et notamment la NASA, ont-elle accentué la responsabilité de l’homme dans ce changement ? C’est ce qu’affirment 49 anciens employés de l’agence spatiale américaine.Quarante-neuf anciens membres de la NASA ont écrit une lettre à Charles Bolden, l’administrateur de l’agence spatiale, dans laquelle ils s’insurgent contre la façon dont le Goddard Institute for Space Science (GISS) angle ses diverses études sur le climat. Comme le rapporte le Washington Examiner, ces anciens employés de l’agence spatiale américaine accusent celle-ci d’avoir accordé trop d’importance à l’activité humaine dans le changement climatique.

Airstrike hits bridge disrupting IS supply lines

first_imgMOSUL, Iraq — An airstrike by the U.S.-led coalition on Wednesday “disabled” a fourth bridge across the Tigris River in Mosul, leaving only one intact crossing in the northern Iraqi city and further disrupting the Islamic State group’s supply lines.The IS-run Aamaq news agency and an Iraqi military commander reported the pre-dawn airstrike, the second to target a bridge this week. Two other bridges were destroyed by airstrikes last month.The airstrike was followed by intense fighting in an eastern Mosul neighborhood where Iraq’s special forces are slowly advancing toward the city center, hampered by suicide car bombings, snipers and concern over the safety of civilians.The Tigris River runs through the center of Mosul, and until now most of the fighting has been on the eastern bank. Iraqi forces are expected to use pontoon bridges when they reach the river.Brig. Gen. Haider Fadhil of the Iraqi special forces told The AP that his men were slowly pushing back IS fighters in the densely populated Zohour neighborhood, where several suicide car bombs were destroyed by airstrikes before reaching their targets.last_img read more

Court of Appeal rules in favour of NHS staff in holiday pay

first_imgOn Monday 10 June 2019, the Court of Appeal ruled in favour of NHS employees working for the East of England Ambulance Service, finding that staff who regularly undertake overtime or work beyond their normal shifts should have these hours taken into account when calculating holiday pay.The case, N Flowers and others v East of England Ambulance Trust, concerns 13 members of staff working in various roles for the ambulance service, including one paramedic, represented by trade union Unison. The claimants argued that holiday pay should reflect actual hours worked, rather than being based solely on contracted working times.The claim concerns overtime in two categories: non-guaranteed and voluntary. Non-guaranteed overtime refers to employees working beyond contracted hours to complete a task, while individuals choosing to work extra time to ease pressures on colleagues and boost their own pay counts as voluntary overtime.The case was originally brought to an Employment Tribunal (ET) and Employment Appeals Tribunal (EAT) in May 2017 and April 2018, respectively. The Court of Appeal upheld the EAT’s 2018 decision. The East of England Ambulance Service now has 28 days in which to decide whether to appeal.A spokesperson from the East of England Ambulance Service said: “We are committed to offering our staff good rates of pay, a generous holiday entitlement and great working conditions. However, giving careful consideration to the Court of Appeal’s decision, we are not satisfied with the interpretation of the law in either of the [judgments] made.“We remain concerned at the impact these decisions could have both on ourselves and other NHS employers, and we have instructed our legal representatives to appeal to the Supreme Court on both [judgments].”NHS pay is decided by the national Agenda for Change scheme, which is subject to an independent review each year.Clause 13.9 of Agenda for Change states that NHS staff pay during annual leave should include payment for work outside normal hours, and that pay is calculated on the basis of what the individual would have received if they had been at work, based on the previous three months. The Court of Appeal held that this clause should be honoured, and rejected the trust’s argument that a distinction should be drawn between voluntary and non-guaranteed overtime payments.Dave Prentis, general secretary at Unison, said: “Before today’s judgment, NHS workers who did regular overtime or often worked well beyond their shifts saw a drop in their pay whenever they took a well-deserved break. Leave calculations that weren’t based on the extra shifts and hours they did week in and week out meant many were considerably out of pocket.“Unison always believed that the rules around NHS pay already allowed for overtime and working beyond the end of a shift to be taken into account when calculating holiday pay. Today’s judgment confirms that, but does highlight another pressing problem. The NHS urgently needs to recruit more staff so existing nurses, paramedics and other health workers don’t have to regularly work overtime simply to keep the service afloat.“This is a victory for all those health service workers who regularly go the extra mile to make sure we receive the best care possible at all times of the day and night.”Emlyn Williams, partner, employment, pensions and immigration team at Weightmans, added: “We don’t yet know if this decision will be appealed further by the trust to the Supreme Court. [Employers] may wish to hold back from making changes to the way [they] pay [their] employees until the position is clearer. However, arguably, following such emphatic statements of the law from both the EAT and Court of Appeal, a further successful appeal is unlikely.”last_img read more

Uncertainty over US strike against alQaida leader in Libya

first_imgA Facebook page associated with Libya Dawn, the Islamist militia backing the Tripoli-based government, denied that the airstrikes targeted al-Qaida and instead said they targeted Islamists who are “Libya’s revolutionaries … considered the safety valve for the revolution.” It said U.S. warplanes were allied with the forces led by powerful Gen. Khalifa Hifter and backing the internationally recognized government.The east-based government hailed the U.S. raid as a “piece of the international support that it has long requested to fight terrorism that represents a dangerous threat to the regional and international situation.”It added that the government would like more help fighting terrorism, including the Islamic State group, which controls Sirte, west of Ajdabiya, and is spreading to the west and south.Militants have taken advantage of Libya’s chaos, with fighters flowing into the country’s vast ungoverned spaces.Al-Qaida militants in eastern Libya are battling the Islamic State group for power and resources. But as IS has grown in power, fueled by successes in Iraq and Syria, some al-Qaida fighters have switched loyalties.It was not the first time the U.S. has been involved in the fight against Libyan extremists. U.S. special forces went into Tripoli in 2013 and took Abu Anas al-Libi out of the country. Al-Libi, who was accused by the U.S. of involvement in the 1998 bombings of two U.S. embassies in Africa, died in January in a U.S. hospital from a longstanding medical condition. ___Associated Press Video journalist Sagar Meghani in Washington and Rami Musa contributed to this report.Copyright © The Associated Press.

CAIRO (AP) — Pentagon officials say they believe they hit their target — the one-eyed, al-Qaida-linked commander who led a deadly attack on an Algerian gas facility in 2013. But uncertainty still surrounds the U.S. airstrike in eastern Libya, and whether Mokhtar Belmokhtar was actually among the militants said to have been killed in the bombing.Libyan officials say Sunday’s airstrike hit a gathering of militants on a farm outside Ajdabiya, a coastal city about 850 kilometers (530 miles) east of the capital, Tripoli, but there were conflicting reports on how many died. 5 greatest Kentucky Derby finishes Top Stories Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility 5 ways to recognize low testosterone Sponsored Stories New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sobercenter_img An initial assessment shows the bombing that targeted Belmokhtar was successful, and “post-strike assessments” were still underway Monday to determine whether the Algerian militant was killed, said Col. Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman.“But we’re not prepared to confirm that because we haven’t finalized our assessment,” he said, adding that the strike had hit a “hard structure.”Maj. Mohammed Hegazi, a military spokesman from Libya’s internationally recognized government based in the east, also said tests were needed to identify the dead, which numbered at least 17, with their bodies badly burned. Among those killed were three foreigners — a Tunisian and two unidentified militants, he said.Hegazi criticized his own government for rushing to confirm late Sunday that Belmokhtar was among the dead.“I don’t confirm or deny. We are waiting confirmation,” he told The Associated Press by telephone. “It is not easy.”He said the raid was based on solid intelligence that indicated militants forced out of the eastern city of Benghazi by fighting there had taken refuge in Ajdabiya.No civilians were killed, Hegazi said, adding that the militants took the fatally wounded Tunisian to a hospital in Ajdabiya, clashes erupted with local troops that left three soldiers dead. The charges filed against him by U.S. law enforcement officials included conspiring to support al-Qaida, use of a weapon of mass destruction and conspiring to take hostages.U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara had said Belmokhtar “unleashed a reign of terror years ago, in furtherance of his self-proclaimed goal of waging bloody jihad against the West.”Intelligence officials said Belmokhtar had essentially built a bridge between AQIM and the underworld, creating a system where various outlaws support each other and enroll youths.He’s been linked to terrorist attacks and the lucrative kidnapping of foreigners in the region.Libya has been plagued by chaos since the civil war in 2011, which drew in U.S. and European airstrikes that helped topple longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi. He was killed by armed groups, which have since grown to roil the country in violence.Recently, the internationally recognized government, backed by its own militias, has been forced out of Tripoli by Islamist militias and their affiliated politicians who set up their own government and parliament.U.N.-sponsored talks have bogged down as the two sides exchange accusations.The weekend U.S. bombing raid could cause more disarray among the rival Libyan groups. Comments   Share   4 sleep positions for men and what they mean FILE – In this Jan. 21, 2013 file photo, Algerian firemen carry a coffin containing the body of a person killed during the gas facility hostage situation at the morgue in Ain Amenas, Algeria. The U.S. said the military launched an airstrike Saturday, June 13, 2015, targeting an al-Qaida leader in eastern Libya who has been charged with leading the attack on a gas plant in Algeria in 2013 that killed 35 hostages, including three Americans. The Libyan government and U.S. officials said warplanes targeted and likely killed Mokhtar BelMokhtar and several others. (AP Photo/Anis Belghoul, File) In the airstrikes, two F-15 fighter jets had launched multiple 500-pound bombs, a U.S. official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss details of the attack. Authorities say no U.S. personnel were on the ground for the assault.A Libyan Islamist with ties to militants said the airstrikes missed Belmokhtar, but killed four members of a Libyan extremist group linked to al-Qaida, Ansar Shariah, in Ajdabiya. That group was tied to the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.The Islamist, who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisal in Libya, told the AP that Belmokhtar wasn’t at the site of the airstrike.However, a news website that has previously carried statements from Belmokhtar said he was in Ajdabiya, meeting with affiliates. The Mauritanian website quoted informed sources in Libya as saying six people were killed in the raid, and a Tunisian and Yemeni were wounded.Abdel-Basit Haroun, a security adviser to the eastern government, said a total of 29 people were killed in the airstrike, which hit a meeting of al-Qaida affiliates as they tried to “rearrange their ranks.” Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall If Belmokhtar’s death is confirmed, it would be a major success for U.S. counterterrorism efforts. He is one of the most-wanted militants in the region, with a $5 million reward for information leading to his capture, and it is not the first time authorities claimed to have killed him.Believed to be 43 years old, Belmokhtar fought in Afghanistan and was reported to have lost his eye in combat. He was one of a number of Islamist fighters who have battled Algeria’s government since the 1990s, later joining al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb, the group’s North Africa branch.He was also known as “Belaouer the One-Eyed,” ”Abou al-Abbes” and “Mr. Marlboro,” because he was accused of smuggling cigarettes through the Sahara and the Sahel region.He formed his own group and led the January 2013 attack on Algeria’s Ain Amenas gas complex that killed at least 35 hostages, including three Americans. He later emerged in Libya, and is believed to have been based in the western and southern parts of the country.The U.S. filed terrorism charges against Belmokhtar in connection with the Algeria attack. Officials have said they believe he remained a threat to U.S. and Western interests. Belmokhtar had just split off from al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb to start his own franchise.last_img read more

Climate does not recognise political positions

first_imgBy George VassiliouCLIMATE change has dominated global headlines in recent years with weather-related tragedies affecting millions of people. As real as these tragedies have been, the response from some populist politicians, most notably the US president, has been blame and denial.In 2017, President Donald Trump announced that he would not honour the Paris Agreement that his predecessor Barack Obama acceded to and was highly critical of the UN Green Climate Fund which was set up in 2010 to help with the agreement’s implementation.Climate, however, does not recognise political positions. In 2017, the United States incurred its costliest year on record with US $306 billion in losses from climate-related disasters, including three massive hurricanes. With the devastation of Hurricane Michael and the unprecedented fires in California, it is clear that the frequency and intensity of these disasters are increasing.Globally, weather-related losses rose by 151 per cent in the last 20 years compared to the previous 20-year period. Despite the Paris Agreement on climate change and the thousands of articles, speeches and studies concerning the dangers and negative effects of climate change, the situation is getting worse. In 2018 alone, Japan suffered massive flooding and mudslides, dust storms rolled through India, wind storms swept across Europe, Germany and other parts of Europe were hit bydrought, and record high temperatures were seen in cities around the world.My region has been impacted more than most by extreme heat caused by climate change: Scientists forecast that global warming has doubled the likelihood of heat waves, and this prediction was born out in the extreme heat wave that swept across Europe in the summer of 2018. Wildfires, for example, that erupted in Greece were so severe that cars were reduced to molten metal and whole villages were wiped out. Ninety-nine people lost their lives in what became the second deadliest wildfire tragedy in the 21st century.And if my region is affected by climate change, so is Cyprus. In May 2018, the Cyprus Institutehosted a conference of scientists from 35 countries on the theme of ‘Climate Change in the Mediterranean and the Middle East’. Leaders like the former prime minister of France, Laurent Fabius, who presided over the successful conclusion of the COP21 Paris Agreement, also attended. The conclusions of the conference were startling: Cyprus’ the Environment Commissioner said that Cyprus could experience a 10 to 15 per cent decline in rainfall in the coming decades.This, in turn, according to the predictor models of the Cyprus Institute in their report ‘Climate Change and Impact’, would result in an increase in extremely hot summer days with maximum temperatures exceeding 38 degrees Celsius for an additional two weeks per year, compared to the already warm summers we are used to. By the end of the century Nicosia could have the number of extremely hot days increasing by two months, resulting in weather conditions similar to Cairo or Bahrain today.The severity of these issues was highlighted in the October 2018 report by the UN intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The report warned that we only have a dozen years left to keep the rise in global temperature to less than 1.5 degrees Celsius or face significantly worse climate-related disasters. It is clear that the previous ambition of limiting temperature rise to a maximum of two degrees Celsius would result in far greater food and water insecurity, dramaticallyhigher sea-level rise, and wipe out corals, among other dire effects. In horrifying contrast, the world remains on track to realise an increase of three degrees Celsius.The situation has become so critical that we witness demonstrations and appeals both in Europe and the US. As the world turns from bad to worse, 19 of the G20 leaders came together in Argentina in December 2018 to reaffirm their support of the Paris accord. The notable exception was once again President Trump, who just days before the meeting in Buenos Aires expressed his opposition to a report by his own government that outlined how climate change is impacting the lives of Americans.The ‘Fourth National Climate Assessment’, a report compiled by hundreds of US experts, summarises current and future risks and featured the stark warning that “neither global efforts to mitigate the causes of climate change nor regional efforts to adapt to the impacts currently approach the scale needed to avoid substantial damages to the US economy, environment, and human health and well-being over the coming decades.”Sir David Attenborough was chosen to speak for the world’s people when he addressed the 200 nations gathered in Katowice, Poland, for the United Nations Climate Change Conference in December 2018: “Leaders of the world, you must lead. The continuation of civilisations and the natural world upon which we depend is in your hands.”At the same time that President Trump was walking away from climate action, Chinese President Xi Jinping was “taking the driver’s seat”. At the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China in October 2017, President Xi spoke about the benefits to be realised through reducing consumption and saving resources and warned that “any harm we inflict on nature will eventually return to haunt us.” At the insistence of President Xi and French President Emmanuel Macron, the Paris Agreement was once again the centrepiece of the communiqué from the G20 meeting in Buenos Aires.China’s engagement in preserving the health of the planet was witnessed in its unwavering support of the Paris Agreement. Domestically its work in this field has been markedly geared up since Premier Li Keqiang announced to the Second Session of the 12th National People’s Congress in March 2014, “We will resolutely declare war against pollution as we declared war against poverty.” Since then, Chinese cities have reduced the fine particulates in the air by an average of 32 per cent.The New York Times reported in March 2018 that China’s fight against pollution had already added an average of 2.4 years to the life expectancy of its citizens.When the InterAction Council, a group of former state leaders of which I have long been a member, met in Beijing in September 2018, we had the pleasure of meeting with Chinese Vice President Wang Qishan, who confirmed that “China will follow the path of peaceful development and promote the building of a community with a shared future for mankind.”The council’s leadership agreed with the vice president that combatting climate change was crucial for the shared future of the planet.There may never be complete agreement on the facts, but politics should not prevent the world from acting quickly to limit global warming. George Vassiliou was president of the Republic of Cyprus 1988-1993 and coordinator and chief negotiator for the country’s accession to the EU 1998-2003.

to "raise my profile as an aviator perhaps the only way was to achieve a creditable combat record" Soon after he and Carol welcomed daughter Sidney in September 1966 McCain joined a squadron in Vietnam Assigned to the USS Forrestal in the South China Sea he felt he had finally arrived: "Nobody made me fly over Vietnam Thats what I was trained to do and thats what I wanted to do" When McCain arrived in Vietnam 385000 Americans served in Southeast Asia His squad took part in Operation Rolling Thunder a brutal bombing campaign that President Lyndon Johnson had started in March 1965 By January 1967 McCain had risen to lieutenant commander But in July while preparing for a bombing run a nearby jet accidentally fired a missile and hit McCains fuel tank The blast triggered a series of explosions shot shrapnel into his chest and legs and killed 134 sailors and aviators Recovering at home in Florida McCain wondered what to do telling his classmate Chuck Larson "I want to be a serious officer and Im having problems getting people to take me seriously" Said Larson "Youre going back into combat and you will prove yourself" McCain joined the Saints an attack squadron aboard the

the eruption of dust and smoke when surface-to-air missiles (SAMs) took off toward them like "a flying telephone pole moving at great speed" Black clouds of antiaircraft flak exploded in the air As McCain neared the power plant a missile locked on his jet and his missile-warning gauge emitted a shrill warning "So at about 3500 feet" he later recalled "I released my bombs then pulled back the stick to begin a steep climb to a safer altitude In the instant before my plane reacted a SAM blew my right wing off I was killed" Spiraling down at 550 miles an hour McCain radioed "Im hit" As he ejected from the plane his right knee slammed into something and broke and the force of shooting from the craft and hitting the air snapped his arms McCains chute opened and he tumbled unconscious toward the earth He landed in Truc Bach Lake in the center of Hanoi and weighed down with 50 pounds of gear quickly sank Jarred awake he used his good leg to kick up to the surface but couldnt understand why his arms would not respond McCain went down again and with his teeth pulled the toggle and inflated his vest Twenty angry North Vietnamese yanked him ashore stripped him to his underwear kicked him and spat on him Someone smashed his shoulder with a rifle butt and a bayonet was jabbed into his groin and ankle Soldiers then heaved his body onto a truck They brought him to Hoa Lò prison in central Hanoi Hoa Lò translates as "fiery furnace" and McCain was about to learn of the deadly reputation of the yellow stone concrete-walled prison complex that Americans nicknamed the

shaking his head said "Its too late its too late" McCain lapsed into unconsciousness but soon an excited officer rushed in and yelled "Your father is a big admiral Now we take you to the hospital" For the North Vietnamese Lt Cmdr John Sidney McCain III was a royal catch They called him the Crown Prince and Radio Hanoi boasted of the capture of "air pirate McCain son of Admiral McCain" The aviator was transferred to a medical facility waking up a few days later "in a filthy room lousy with mosquitoes and rats" Rain washed in mud Medics gave him transfusions and blood but as McCain recalled "no treatment for my injuries No one had even bothered to wash the grime off me" Two weeks later a doctor tried to set McCains right arm and its three breaks The man didnt use anesthesia and after 90 minutes he gave up and slapped on a neck-to-waist cast An officer whom McCain remembered as "short and fat with a strangely wandering right eye that was clouded white by a cataract" then told him that a French correspondent wanted to interview him When asked about the prison food McCain told the journalist "Well its OK but its not Paris" Guards returned McCain to a roach-filled room and interrogators beat him They did operate on his knee but they simply cut out the ligaments and cartilage and refused to give him more surgery because of his "bad attitude" By the time the jailers left
