NDP promise on core First Nation education richest among three main federal

first_imgJorge Barrera APTN National NewsA comparison of the platforms from the three main federal parties vying to form government after Oct. 19 shows the NDP is offering the richest promise on core, K to 12 First Nation education.Key to commitments from the Conservatives, Liberals and NDP on First Nation education is the $1.9 billion the Stephen Harper government set aside in its 2014 budget.That money was contingent on passage of the First Nation Control of First Nation Education Act, which died on the Order Paper after it was rejected by the majority of Assembly of First Nations chiefs.According to numbers provided by Aboriginal Affairs, about $1.2 billion of that money is still set aside in the fiscal framework for First Nation education. The federal Finance department also confirmed the money exists.“The remaining funds are still available, but as we said all along, investment will follow reform, not replace reform, so we are working with willing First Nation partners to help provide First Nations children with quality education,” said Amanda Gordon, a spokesperson in Aboriginal Affairs Minister Bernard Valcourt’s office.The Conservatives have used $700 million of that money for their existing First Nation education commitments, said Gordon. The 2015 budget committed $200 million over five years for First Nation education and $500 million has been slated for education-related infrastructure on reserves over seven years.NDP leader Thomas Mulcair on Wednesday announced his party, if elected to govern, would invest $1.8 billion in new money for core First Nation education over four years. Mulcair told reporters later that total would be added to whatever money the Conservatives have left in the fiscal framework for on-reserve education.This would bring the NDP total to $3 billion.Liberal leader Justin Trudeau announced in August that his party, if elected, would invest $2.6 billion into core First Nation education, but that total assumed $1.7 billion remains in the fiscal framework from the Conservatives.The Liberal party’s platform costing document has the party committing $900 million for First Nation education in new money over four years.If only $1.2 billion remains in the fiscal framework, that would mean there is a $500 million gap in the Liberal’s total education promise for First Nations.Both the NDP and the Liberals have committed to lifting the two per cent cap on transfers to First Nations.For comparison purposes, the total NDP promise for core First Nation education tops up at about $3 billion if the fiscal framework dollars are included.The Liberal core First Nation education promise, including the fiscal framework dollars, totals $2.6 billion. If only $1.2 billion remains in the fiscal framework, then the Liberal total would drop to $2.1 billion.The Conservative commitment on core education would total $1.4 billion if the party used every dollar set aside in the fiscal framework plus the $200 million already budgeted to flow this fiscal year.Polls currently show the NDP now trailing the Liberals and the Conservatives as the election race hits the final stretch.jbarrera@aptn.ca@JorgeBarreralast_img read more

Jet pilots engineers joining SpiceJet at 3050 pay cut

first_imgNew Delhi: Low-cost carrier and top rival SpiceJet appears to be making the most of the crisis at Jet Airways. Spicejet is now hiring engineers and pilots at much lower pay than their current salaries at the financialy-troubled Jet. Industry sources told IANS that pilots from Jet Airways are being asked to take salary cuts of 25-30 per cent, while engineers have been advised to settle at 50 per cent of their current pay package. Not long ago, many airlines including SpiceJet were luring the same pilots and engineers with joining bonuses and better perks. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscal “The prospect of closure is certainly one of the reasons for professionals agreeing to take salary cuts. But average salaries at Jet Airways have also been higher than the industry level,” a top aviation source said. A senior aircraft maintenance engineer who has applied to SpiceJet and Air India Express for a job said that he has got an offer in the range of Rs 150,000 to 200,000 a month while his current cost to company (CTC) at Jet Airways is nearly Rs 400,000 a month. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boost “The offer is much lower. It will certainly be a forced choice. We are hoping that some investor would take over Jet and our salaries will remain protected,” he said. A SpiceJet executive said that the budget carrier was offering salaries based on their own structure and not the highly inflated one paid by Jet Airways. A senior commander with Jet Airways said that pilots with 4-5 years of experience are going to other airlines as they are feeling the pinch of salary delays. “They have loans and other financial commitments so they are looking for places where there is certainty of jobs and timely salary payment. Not many senior level pilots have so far left Jet Airways. They are reluctant to go to either SpiceJet, IndiGo or Air India Express as they feel their seniority and salary will be impacted. They do not want to sign 3-5 year bonds,” he said. The flying veteran noted that many co-pilots who do not have much experience generally get about Rs 2.9 lakh salary month at Jet Airways, and they are willing to join other airlines for even less than Rs 2 lakh a month. Among various domestic airlines, only Air India Express and SpiceJet operate Boeing fleets, apart from Jet Airways. Those operating Airbus aircraft fear huge conversion costs for both pilots and engineers and are, thus, reluctant to hire the technical personnel from Jet. “We will have to train them for flying and maintenance of Airbus aircraft. In case of pilots, it will need six months of training, while for engineers the reskilling would take 3-4 months. This means the salary for entire training period will be a huge cost for us,” said an executive of a private airline operating Airbus planes. But aviation experts feel that the current situation is temporary and it will normalise once Jet gets back on its feet. “This is an unusual situation because Jet Airways remains almost grounded. Normally, supply and demand have been in favour of pilots and engineers. Now, it depends on how quickly Jet restarts again. If that happens things will stabilise. I won’t be surprised if many pilots and engineers go back to Jet,” said Rajan Mehra, a veteran aviation professional and Chief Executive Officer Club One Air. Saddled with mounting debt and losses, Jet Airways is fighting for its survival. The airline is in gradual descent and staring at closure with nearly 90 per cent of its fleet on the ground.last_img read more

The US Is Almost Definitely Going To Next Years Womens World Cup

Monday and Tuesday mark the end of group play in the 2014 CONCACAF Women’s World Cup Qualifiers, with the top two teams from each group advancing to the knockout rounds this weekend — all vying for three spots (possibly four) at next summer’s World Cup. After the first two games, we calculated the expected wins and advancement chances for each team in the tournament, but the standings have changed since last week’s opening matches.After a slow start against Trinidad and Tobago, a more organized U.S. team routed Guatemala 5-0 in its second game, with four of its five goals coming late in the second half. The addition of Tobin Heath up top in the 4-3-3 formation proved lucrative, with Heath tallying two goals — including this sweet little flick into the back of the net:Even though the U.S.’s chances of winning the tournament nominally decreased, from 95.5 percent to 95.1 percent, the No.1-ranked FIFA team in the world is still heavily, heavily favored to win. The U.S. is also a heavy favorite against Haiti on Monday night. Haiti, meanwhile, has only an 8 percent chance of making it to the knockout rounds after losing to a 10-player Trinidad team on Friday.The more interesting matchup on Monday night is Trinidad vs. Guatemala. Trinidad, the tournament’s underfunded Cinderella, currently has an 84 percent chance of advancing to the knockout rounds. If Trinidad wins or ties against Guatemala and Haiti loses to the U.S., the Trinidadians will likely face Costa Rica in the semifinals (where even a loss would leave fourth-place Trinidad with a shot at attending its first World Cup).Below are the updated expected group points and win probabilities for every CONCACAF tournament team:Costa Rica’s upset over Mexico last week moves it to the top of Group B, despite Mexico still having a greater chance of winning the tournament — 3.1 percent compared to Costa Rica’s 1.2 percent. This is a function of the FIFA ratings (which we’re using to calculate the expected wins and advancement probabilities, and which have not been updated to reflect Costa Rica’s recent performances). FIFA currently ranks Mexico at No. 25 and Costa Rica at No. 40. Both Costa Rica and Mexico are locks for the knockout round, but Mexico’s higher rating and record against the U.S. (they’ve beaten the U.S. once and tied them once, while Costa Rica has never won against the Americans) are part of why the Mexican team has a marginally better chance of upsetting the U.S. and winning the tournament.Costa Rica will face last-place Martinique and Mexico will play against Jamaica on Tuesday in the final Group B matches. As the tournament currently stands, the most likely knockout scenarios are the U.S. vs. Mexico in one semifinal and Costa Rica vs. Trinidad in the other. The semifinal matches will be played on Friday and the championship on Sunday, and we’ll update the advancement table again before those games.CORRECTION (Oct. 24, 4:37 p.m.): A previous version of this post included a table with an incorrect column header. The table lists the chances of placing third, not reaching the third-place game. read more

Ohio States defense might be hitting its stride as season ending

The conversation about Ohio State’s defense is changing inside and outside the huddle. The Buckeyes, which limited a hapless, anemic Illinois offense to 170 yards in a 52-22 shellacking on Saturday, moved to 10-0 and one step closer to the program’s first undefeated season since 2002. And while the Illini’s own incompetence and 118th national ranking in total offense might have helped OSU’s Silver Bullets, sophomore linebacker Ryan Shazier said the talk in the huddle among members of the once much-maligned defense is different than what it was before. “It just got a lot easier to talk to each other, everybody’s gonna have each other accountable for everything,” said Shazier, who was named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week after a 14-tackle outing Saturday. “Now when we go in the huddle, we don’t talk about ‘Don’t let the big play happen, don’t let this, don’t let that’ – we just go in there talking about ‘We need a turnover, three-and-out, get the offense the ball.’” This just might be reflective of a defense coming of age, particularly after surrendering 49 points on the road against a now 4-5 Indiana squad. Though the Buckeyes left Bloomington, Ind., with a shaky 52-49 win, first-year coach Urban Meyer approached the contest’s postgame press conference arguably as disgusted as he’d been all season. Meyer even hinted at taking a more active role in a defense that had given up 87 points in back-to-back weeks. But now? After allowing 22 and 23 points in wins against Purdue and at Penn State, respectively, Meyer said improvement on the defense’s part has been evident. “Ever since the Indiana debacle in the second half, I’ve seen pretty much four-to-six seconds,” Meyer said regarding the level of effort he’s come to expect out of the Buckeyes. “And I see a lot of hard coaching going on. And that’s what I expect out of our staff.” It’s a line Meyer’s used since he came to Columbus in Nov. 2011-4-6 seconds, he said, of relentless effort, relentless pursuit on every play of every game. By the former Florida coach’s calculations, it’s enough to win football games. OSU cornerback redshirt sophomore Bradley Roby said the defense is getting back to that pillar of Meyer’s coaching philosophy. “Since the Indiana game we had a lot of serious meetings and we had to get it done on defense, and that’s what we’ve been doing lately,” he said. Like Meyer, Roby said the game against the Hoosiers was a “wake up call.” “We were like, ‘Man, we’re way better than this.’ Ever since then we been practicing harder and playing harder and it’s been showing,” Roby said. Arguably, such progression had never been so apparent before Saturday in a game which saw OSU secure more first downs (32) than the Illini had points. In reality, OSU’s defense gave up just 14 points, considering eight of Illinois’ points came off a 77-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown late in the game’s fourth quarter. Illini junior quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase mustered just 96 yards and an interception against an OSU front-seven that harassed him from start to finish. “From what I saw he was just running around all day,” Roby said. While Scheelhaase was sacked twice, the Buckeyes’ defensive line appeared to be getting enough of a push to allow its linebackers, Shazier included, to slam the door shut on runs to the outside and entrench themselves against short, dump-off passes over the middle. “It’s pretty fun when the coaches let the team loose and let us go after the ball,” Shazier said. “I’ve been playing like this mentality for all my life, see ball, get ball.” That aggressiveness, however, might only be made possible because of a more aware defense. OSU assistant head coach and co-defensive coordinator Everett Withers said players are comprehending, perhaps now more than ever, what’s happening on any given play. “The biggest deal is I think our kids in the back seven are starting to understand when we get this formation, these are the two or three things that will happen,” Withers said. “Everybody’s recognizing exactly what they need to see in that formation.” And if Illinois is any indication, it might be working. “We knew exactly what was coming before they even ran it sometimes,” Shazier said. With a bye this weekend, OSU travels to Wisconsin on Nov. 17 for its second-to-last game of the 2012 season. read more

Baseball Ohio State comes out on top of wild 123 win against

Ohio State sophomore pitcher Jake Vance (3) throws a pitch in the third inning of the game against Ohio University in April 10. Ohio State won 4-0. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorThe combined pitching staffs of Ohio State and Youngstown State dragged on a Wednesday night matchup for three hours and 26 minutes, struggling to find the strike zone while issuing a combined 17 walks. The difference for Ohio State (25-10, 6-3 Big Ten) was its ability to strike out batters, 15 in total, with the team cruising to a 12-3 victory against Youngstown State.  (10-23, 7-7 Horizon).“We can’t create that type of help for our opponent if we’re gonna beat a really good team,” head coach Greg Beals said.Youngstown State’s control issues began early. Junior starter Kip DeShields walked four batters, threw a wild pitch and surrendered three runs on one hit while recording just one out before being pulled.The Penguins’ pitching struggles continued in the third, when the Buckeyes strung together five straight hits to extend their lead to 6-2.Youngstown State’s pitching staff finished with 10 walks, a hit batter, four wild pitches and a balk.Ohio State sophomore first baseman Conner Pohl extended his hitting streak to 15 games, swatting a three-run home run in the fourth. He finished the day 2-for-4.“[I’m] not chasing any off-speed, just playing my game honestly,” Pohl said. “I’m a fastball hitter and just seeing fastballs to hit.”Youngstown State trailed the game by seven runs late in the game and had back-to-back innings with the bases loaded, but both times failed to capitalize.Ohio State sophomore Jake Vance got off to a rocky start on the mound with a 43-pitch first inning, but smoothed things out in the second and finished with one earned run and five strikeouts in three innings.Redshirt sophomore second baseman Matt Carpenter recorded his first career hit in the victory.“You could tell by the reaction from the dugout tonight, that tells you what type of teammate he is,” Beals said. “Speaks to the talent that’s up and down the lineup and throughout that locker room. There’s guys that aren’t getting regular playing time that can play.”Redshirt senior Austin Woodby pitched a pair of innings for the Buckeyes and received his first win of the season.Even with the 12-run performance on Wednesday, Ohio State had the opportunity to do more damage against Youngstown State. The Buckeyes left 12 runners on base while the Penguins left 14 runners on base and scored only three runs. After scoring 31 runs in their past two games, the Buckeyes will begin a three-game set with Indiana on Friday. read more

UCI Commercial Fishing Outlook For 2019 Season Far Better Than Last Year

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享A run of approximately 6 million sockeye salmon is forecasted to return to Upper Cook Inlet in 2019, with an expected harvest by all user groups of 4 million, according to numbers released by the Department of Fish and Game on Thursday. The commercial fishery harvest in 2019 is estimated to be approximately 3 million sockeye salmon, which is 200,000 fish more than the 20-year average annual commercial sockeye salmon harvest. The run forecast for the Kenai River is approximately 3.8 million, which is 200,000 greater than the 20-year average run of 3.6 million. Brian Marston, Area Management Biologist: “The sockeye salmon forecast are slightly above average and looking far better than last year. It doesn’t mean a whole lot of difference at first in our management for this year, because we will still be in our second year for the Monday, Thursday fishing periods. The real caveat this year will be like last year which will be what happens with the Kenai River late run king salmon.”  If, during the summer, fishermen have information or questions concerning the commercial fishery, the Soldotna Division of Commercial Fisheries staff can be reached by phone at 262-9368, by fax at 262-4709, or by mail at 43961 Kalifornsky Beach Road, Suite B, Soldotna, 99669.last_img read more

Joseph Lengyel told a Senate appropriations subcommittee Wednesday that the service will have to reduce training and possibly cancel weekend drills unless the roughly $193 million in training accounts is replenished amid the southern border mission, Stars and Stripes reported.“If we don’t reprogram funds back into our training accounts, (we) will have to make modifications within our current appropriations that will either reduce our training opportunities or do things like cancel drill weekends to find the money,” Lengyel testified.There are currently 2,079 Guard members on the border.“Canceling drill weekends will impact readiness,” Lengyel said. “I will tell you that our hope is that the department finds funds available inside the department that are re-allocatable so that we don’t have to do that.”Army Reserve photo by Sgt.
