Students Performing Well in Reading Math Science International Assessments

first_imgNova Scotia students continue to perform above the international average in reading, mathematics and science, according to the latest assessment results. The 2009 Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), released today, Dec. 7, measured the student achievement of 15-year-olds in 65 countries, including Canada and each of the 10 provinces. Nova Scotia’s best showing was in reading, placing 13th in the world. Nova Scotia students also improved on the national stage, rising from the lower third among provinces to fifth in each of the three subject areas. “Our students are again demonstrating that they are among the best in the world, faring well against many of their counterparts in the United States, U.K. and much of Europe,” said Education Minister Marilyn More. “I congratulate students and teachers and encourage them, and boards, to keep up the good work.” The report found students in Nova Scotia performed at the national average in science, yet below the Canadian average in reading and mathematics. “While this assessment has a lot of good news for Nova Scotia, we need to do better,” said Ms. More. “Our challenge, as always, is to continue to improve within Canada. The financial and enrolment challenges facing our province also underscore the fact that we need to work closely with boards and our other partners to keep ourselves, and our investment in public education, focused on better outcomes for students.” Reading was the main focus of last year’s PISA study. “There was actually little difference statistically between Nova Scotia students and students in other parts of the country in reading,” said Vince Warner, director of evaluation services with the Department of Education. “Only two provinces, Alberta and Ontario, significantly outperformed Nova Scotia students.” Within the Nova Scotia results, the study also found: PISA follows the release of the International Baccalaureate results, which showed Nova Scotia’s IB students outperformed the world in 21 of 27 subject areas, including mathematics, English, biology and physics. The 2009 PISA study was administered to 2,133 students at 72 schools in Nova Scotia in April and May 2009. The assessment, conducted by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, can be viewed at http://www.cmec.ca/Programs/assessment/interstudent/Pages/pisa2009.aspx . girls significantly outperformed boys in reading, while boys outperformed girls in mathematics no significant difference in performance between boys and girls in science French-language students performed below English-language students in reading and science on average, consistent with other minority language students across the country French language students, on average, performed at the same level as English-language students in mathematics. Nova Scotia has the smallest gap in average performance between boys and girls in the country, and the second smallest between language groups in achievementlast_img read more

Dental Hospital puts up vertical garden to increase green cover on campus

first_imgKolkata: Dr R Ahmed Dental College and Hospital is the first hospital in the state to have a vertical garden on its campus near Moulali.The saplings have been planted on the walls of the hospital building spreading over an area of almost 900 square feet. According to an official of the hospital, this is a first of its kind and no medical colleges or dental colleges have come up with the idea so far. The responsibility of maintaining the garden lies with the alumni association of the dental college. Also Read – City bids adieu to Goddess DurgaIt is believed that other hospitals may follow the footsteps of the Asia’s oldest dental college. Dr Subhra Nandy, secretary, Dr.R.Ahmed Dental College and Hospital Alumni Association said: “We are grateful to the State Health department, College authority for this innovative concept.” The decision to put up vertical garden was taken as it is easy to maintain and in the age of a space crunch in the Metropolis the idea would contribute to enhance the greenery.

It may be mentioned that New Town Kolkata Development Authority (NKDA) has already set up a vertical garden in New Town. NKDA chalked out a unique plan of putting up flower pots to set up green vertical gardens on Metro rail pillars as a part of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s ‘Save Green and Stay Clean’ project. The project is the only of its kind in the country, where flower pots have been put up on Metro pillars to set up vertical gardens along the Airport-Garia Metro railway route. The Eastern Railway had also taken up a pioneering step for providing more green cover towards a ‘Swachh’ and purified environment at Railway premises by installing vertical wall garden at Sealdah station. This vertical wall garden at Sealdah station will help in purifying the contaminated air in the heavily crowded area with millions of passengers commuting every day.last_img read more

OPP investigating death of First Nation mother found in hotel room

first_img(Deidre Patayash, 29, was found dead Tuesday in Sioux Lookout, Ont. Facebook photo)By Jorge Barrera APTN National NewsA family in the northern Ontario First Nation of Weagamow is in mourning after a mother from the community was found dead Tuesday in a Sioux Lookout, Ont., hotel room under suspicious circumstances.Deidre Patayash, 29, was found dead at 6:30 a.m. inside a room at the Forest Inn by paramedics and OPP officers after a call from the hotel.The statement said the OPP was continuing to investigate Patayash’s death. Patayash’s body has been sent to Toronto where it will undergo a postmortem examination on Thursday, police said. The OPP released no other details about the circumstances of the death.Patayash was a mother of two boys, one aged 13, and another aged 5. She was in Sioux Lookout for a custody hearing involving her five year-old son, who lives in Slate Falls, scheduled for Tuesday morning, said Weagamow Chief Dinah Kanate.Kanate said Patayash will be buried in Weagamow at the request of her oldest son.“He wants to bring his mom home and bury her here,” said Kanate.Kanate was the one who told Patayash’ mother, who lives in the community, that her daughter was dead.“It was heartbreaking,” said Kanate. “It is hard.”Kanate said Patayash had been living in Cat Lake First Nation with Alvin Ash for the past two or three months.Ash, 32, was arrested and charged with assault in connection with the investigation into the death, the OPP said in the statement. It was unclear from the statement who Ash allegedly assaulted and an OPP spokesperson would provide no additional details.Ash is scheduled to appear in Sioux Lookout provincial court on Friday. Ash says on his Facebook page he has two daughters.jbarrera@aptn.ca@JorgeBarreralast_img read more

Researcher of the month Travis Dudding

Travis Dudding is a problem solver on a molecular level.The associate professor in the department of Chemistry spends much of his research time trying to solve the mechanistic riddles around synthetically important chemical reactions using computational chemistry. In many cases, Dudding and his research team are after the synthesis of medicinally useful pharmaceuticals in a much shorter time, while utilizing considerably fewer resources as well.His work has come to the attention of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the United States, who have awarded Dudding a $64,800 U.S. sub-contract to work on a specific reaction discovered by a colleague at the University at Buffalo. In the past three years, Sherry Chemler’s team has devised a reaction set that allows for the expedient preparation of chemically valuable nitrogen heterocycles, but as Dudding notes, the underlying mechanistic events taking place in these transformations were questionable, or unknown. Dudding’s team has been called in to unravel the mysteries.“To find out what’s going on, it takes some very powerful computers, and a lot of knowledge,” and patience, he says. The use of computational methods in conjunction with kinetic experiments is a highly effective route for gaining mechanistic insight into reactions.Even with Hermes, the super-computer built in Dudding’s lab and named after the Greek messenger demi-god, computations can take days and weeks to work through the system.“The computer outperforms any other that we’ve come across, and the accuracy is astounding, but it is still a slow process.”Dudding, originally from Blacksburg, Va., is pleased to be working with the NIH again, as he did during his formative graduate and postdoctoral years. His academic journey has taken him a long way from his early academic life, when he initially interned for a major pharmaceutical company, studied at Virginia Tech University, worked at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md., studied at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Md., and finally ended up at UCLA, where he did his postdoctoral fellowship under renowned theoretical chemist Kendall Houk, before landing at Brock University.Dudding and his team, which includes two PhD students, a master’s student, and several undergraduate students, have funding for two years under this sub-contract.The chemistry researcher will also spend time pursuing another quest: Canadian citizenship. “When I first came up here and met people, I just loved Canada. People are so friendly and so nice. Now I never want to leave.”Dudding is on the right road for this journey: he recently attained landed immigrant status.**Each month, The Brock News will profile a researcher helping put Brock on the map.

UN mission reports on serious human rights abuses by Congolese military

In a report covering a period ending last December, the mission’s Human Rights Division said local villagers were ordered to create a mass grave for the bodies of the fishermen, who were alleged to have been extrajudicially executed by soldiers at Koga 1 on 18 November 2005.“A seventh victim is alleged to have been killed at the same location two days later. Three further bodies – a man, woman and 5 year old child – have been found 2 kilometres away from the site of the killings,” the report added.MONUC’s Human Rights Division consists of four units – special investigations, justice support, protection of victims and witnesses, and human rights defenders. It has 11 regional offices located in all provinces, 7 sub-offices and 2 mobile teams in North and South Kivu.In Katanga, Armed Forces of DRC (FARDC) military operations against Mayi Mayi militia continued. MONUC saw a group of 46 “prisoners of war” out of a total of around 400 detainees being held. The prisoners themselves included children, many of whom were sick and nude, the report said.At Pungwe, a village in northern Katanga, the local chief complained to military observers that the FARDC were harassing the local population. According to the source, soldiers who were said to be conducting operations against the Mayi Mayi were instead looting livestock from locals and forcing the villagers to transport stolen goods.Local observers said rapes were being more frequently reported than ever, with at least nine women raped by 20 solders in November in Bilundule, Rutshuru territory in North Kivu. The Human Rights Division’s Goma office said is investigating the incidents.That office also reported that an elderly civilian was found dead on 29 November in Lakpa, a village some 25 kilometres south of Bunia, about a week after he was said to have been arrested by FARDC members, who also stole 300 head of cattle from him. His arms were tied behind him, three bullets were in his back and his body carried other wounds. The Military Prosecutor has begun an investigation, MONUC said. read more

Kinross expects its gold production to rise by 32 as cost per

first_imgFull-year production for 2009 is expected to be approximately 2.4 to 2.5 Moz gold equivalent, consistent with previously stated guidance for the year, an increase of some 32% over 2008 production As mentioned previously, Kinross is now in the process of assessing goodwill impairment. As a result, Kinross expects to record a goodwill impairment accounting charge in the range of $900 million to $1.2 billion at year end, related primarily to goodwill recorded in the 2007 Bema acquisition. The average cost of sales for 2008 is expected to be in line with the previously stated guidance range of $425 to $445/oz  gold equivalent Highlights of Kinross Gold’s outlook for 2009 and an update on key developments include: The average cost of sales per gold equivalent ounce for 2009 is expected to be in the range of $390-420center_img Production1 for the full year 2008 is expected to be in line with the previously stated guidance range of 1.8 to 1.9 Moz gold equivalent, an increase of approximately 16% over 2007 production Tye Burt, Kinross President and CEO, commented that the company “had a truly outstanding year in 2008. We delivered on our commitments with record production, the successful start-up of our three growth projects, and two major acquisitions. Kinross went against industry trends by growing our production and cash flow while our costs decreased over the year.“In 2009, we will continue to execute on our strategic plan to grow cash flow and continually improve our portfolio of assets. Our three new projects at Paracatu, Kupol and Buckhorn are expected to increase production by approximately 32% compared to 2008, while significantly reducing our overall cost of sales per ounce. As a result, we expect strong cash flow from our operations in 2009.“We will continue to pursue opportunities to optimise Kinross mines and new projects. At current operations, we will be driving improvements and organic growth, including our heap leach project at Fort Knox, as well as potential expansions at Paracatu and Maricunga which are under preliminary review. We will also be preparing the foundations for our next round of new projects, including Lobo Marte and Fruta del Norte. In the third quarter, we also expect to update the market on options for Cerro Casale.The ramp-up in production at the Paracatu expansion is advancing in accordance with the update provided in the third-quarter 2008 release, with mill throughput reaching about 60% of design capacity as of year-end 2008. The project is expected to reach full capacity within the first quarter of 2009. As part of the expansion project, Kinross expects to commence construction of a new tailing impoundment facility at Paracatu in May of 2009, subject to obtaining the requisite construction permit from government authorities. In addition, the company is negotiating with local parties to acquire those land rights for the facility not presently owned by the company, and expects to complete these negotiations before the end of the second quarter of 2009.Construction of the heap leach project at Fort Knox has been concluded for the season and is scheduled to restart in the spring. Construction is complete on some 78% of the leach pad area required for initial ore placement and leaching. Start-up of leaching operations is scheduled to commence in the third quarter of 2009.As previously announced, on December 16, 2008, Kinross acquired a 40% interest in Minera Santa Rosa SCM from certain subsidiaries of Anglo American. On January 7, 2009, Kinross’ previously announced purchase of the remaining 60% interest in Minera from a subsidiary of Teck Cominco was closed in escrow pending registration of the share transfer by Chilean authorities. The share transfer registration was completed on January 7, 2009 and the company expects to clear escrow and complete the transaction on January 8, 2009, at which time Kinross will own 100% of Minera.Minera owns 100% of the Lobo-Marte gold project located in the Maricunga district of northern Chile, roughly midway between Kinross’ Maricunga and La Coipa mines. This acquisition adds approximately 5.9 Moz of gold resources to the front of Kinross’ development pipeline. Kinross has completed due diligence on the project and plans to begin a development program in early 2009. This work will involve drilling, design, engineering, metallurgical testing, with the expectation of upgrading the current resource base to an NI 43-101 compliant reserve.Kinross has substantially completed the integration of Aurelian Resources, following its recent acquisition of the company, and is actively seeking to advance the Fruta del Norte project. Assuming successful passage of new legislation in support of responsible mining in Ecuador, the company plans to invest about $45 million in 2009 to support recommencement of the in-fill drilling program, advancement of project evaluation and environmental permitting, and implementation of an expanded community relations and corporate responsibility program.At Cerro Casale, work is continuing on the update to the project’s technical-economic feasibility. Progress is being made with the project team substantially in place and numerous trade-off studies well underway. A feasibility study is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2009. Capital expenditures for 2009 are forecast to be approximately $460 millionlast_img read more

Man granted residency after 37 years living in Ireland

first_imgOur concern now is for the unknown number of other undocumented people in Ireland, with estimates that almost 4 million people are in a similar position across the EU.Call for new scheme to legalise undocumented migrants in Ireland>Ireland is failing to meet its international obligations on asylum seekers says the Irish Refugee Council> AN ALGERIAN MAN has finally secured residency in Ireland after living here undocumented for 37 years.Ali Haddad came to Dublin in 1976 as an aviation student and chose to stay after a military coup in his native Algeria.He has lived on the streets and in temporary housing with casual jobs and the generosity of friends his only income.The Immigrant Council of Ireland says his case highlights the need for reform.Being undocumented forced Ali to live in limbo. He had no access to state services and supports, he couldn’t access unemployment benefits and he wasn’t even able to replace his out-of-date passport.Welcoming the news, Ali said:“To be finally recognised in a country which has been my home for 37 years is overwhelming. I am no longer forced to live in the shadows but can seek work to support myself and play an active role in the community. After the Immigrant Council of Ireland highlighted his case, the Minister for Justice Alan Shatter, TD used his powers of discretion to grant residency.Senior solicitor with the organisation, Hilkka Becker said: ““We are delighted for Ali that he now has an opportunity to seek work, secure a permanent residence and have stability in a country which has been his home for his adult life.last_img read more

17 states sue Trump administration over family separations at US border

first_img17 states sue Trump administration over family separations at US border More than 2,000 children have been separated from their parents in recent weeks and placed in government-contracted shelters. SEVENTEEN STATES, INCLUDING New York and California, have sued the Trump administration today to force it to reunite the thousands of immigrant children and parents it separated at the border, as the legal and political pressure mount to reconnect families more quickly.“The administration’s practice of separating families is cruel, plain and simple,” New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said in a statement.“Every day, it seems like the administration is issuing new, contradictory policies and relying on new, contradictory justifications. But we can’t forget: The lives of real people hang in the balance.”The states, all led by Democratic attorneys general, joined Washington, DC, in filing the lawsuit in federal court in Seattle, arguing that they are being forced to shoulder increased child welfare, education and social services costs.Separately, immigration-rights activists asked a federal judge in Los Angeles to order that parents be released and immediately reunited with their children.The Justice Department did not immediately respond to a request for a comment on the multistate lawsuit. It had no comment on the Los Angeles filing.‘This is the Trump era’In a speech before the conservative Criminal Justice Legal Foundation in Los Angeles, Attorney General Jeff Sessions defended the administration for taking a hardline stand on illegal immigration and said the voters elected the president to do just that.“This is the Trump era,” he said.“We are enforcing our laws again. We know whose side we are on – so does this group – and we’re on the side of police, and we’re on the side of the public safety of the American people.”More than 2,000 children have been separated from their parents in recent weeks and placed in government-contracted shelters – hundreds of miles away, in some cases – under a now-abandoned policy toward families caught illegally entering the US.Amid an international outcry, US president Donald Trump last week issued an executive order to stop the separation of families and said parents and children will instead be detained together.But precious few families have been reunited, and the Trump administration has disclosed next to nothing on how the process will be carried out or how long it will take. Protesters and media gather outside a closed gate at the Port of Entry facility, where tent shelters are being used to house separated family members Source: Matt York via AP/PA ImagesHealth and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar told Congress today that his department still has custody of 2,047 immigrant children separated from their parents at the border. That is only six fewer children than the number in HHS custody as of last Wednesday.Democratic senators said that wasn’t nearly enough progress.“HHS, Homeland Security, and the Justice Department seem to be doing a lot more to add to the bedlam and deflect blame than they’re doing to tell parents where their kids are,” Oregon Senator Ron Wyden said.Under questioning, Azar refused to be pinned down on how long it will take to reunite families. He said his department does extensive vetting of parents to make sure they are not traffickers masquerading as parents.Separated childrenTens of thousands of Central American migrants travelling with children – as well as children travelling alone – are caught on the Mexican border each year. Many are fleeing gang violence in their home countries.At a Texas detention facility, immigrant advocates complained that parents have gotten busy signals or no answers from a 1-800 number provided by federal authorities to get information about their children.Attorneys have spoken to about 200 immigrants at the Port Isabel detention facility near Los Fresnos, Texas, since last week, and only a few knew where their children were being held, said Simon Sandoval-Moshenberg of the Legal Aid Justice Center in Virginia.“The US government never had any plan to reunite these families that were separated,” Sandoval-Moshenberg said, and now it is “scrambling to undo this terrible thing that they have done”. Both sides of the immigration debate meet outside McCain, Flake offices where protesters yell at each other on Camelback Road in Phoenix Source: SIPA USA/PA ImagesA message left for HHS, which runs the hotline, was not immediately returned.Since calling for an end to the separations, administration officials have been casting about for detention space for migrants, with the Pentagon drawing up plans to hold as many as 20,000 at US military bases.At the same time, the administration has asked the courts to let it detain families together for an extended period while their immigration cases are resolved.ProtestsUnder a 1997 court settlement, children must be released from detention as quickly as possible, which generally has been construed to be within 20 days.Outraged by the family separations, immigrant supporters have led protests in recent days in states such as Florida and Texas.Today, police arrested 25 demonstrators at a rally ahead of Sessions’ address.Outside the US attorney’s office, protesters carried signs reading, “Free the children!” and “Stop caging families”. Clergy members blocked the street by forming a human chain. They were handcuffed by police and led away.Later, protesters gathered outside the hotel where Sessions gave his speech. As the attorney general’s motorcade arrived, the crowd chanted, “Nazi, go home”.

TNKBP investors eye BPs share in oil firm

first_imgMOSCOW (AP) – Russian shareholders TNK-BP, the U.K. oil company’s joint venture in Russia, said Wednesday that they are interested in buying a 25 percent stake in the company.TNK-BP, Russia’s third-largest oil producer, is owned on 50-50 basis by BP and AAR, a consortium of Russian billionaire shareholders. The company has been mired in a lengthy dispute after AAR blocked BP’s deal with another Russian oil company, Rosneft. AAR said in a statement on Wednesday that it would like to buy a half of BP’s stake, or 25 percent of the company, at what it described “a market price.” Based on the oil firm’s market valuation at Moscow-based MICEX exchange, a quarter share in TNK-BP is worth some $9.7 billion.The Russian market was already closed at the time of the announcement.BP announced on June 1 that it intended to sell some or all of its shares in TNK-BP and under the terms of their, both parties have 90 days to negotiate in good faith, AAR said.Although mired in boardroom disputes for much of its existence, TNK-BP has generated healthy returns for both parties. Over the past years, TNK-BP’s output has accounted for more than a quarter of BP’s total global production. The British oil company drew some $3.7 billion in dividends from the venture last year alone, receiving a total of $19 billion since the company’s formation in 2003.“AAR and BP both realize that a fundamental realignment in the ownership of TNK-BP is necessary in order to allow each of the shareholders to achieve its strategic objectives and eliminate the internal contradictions that are preventing further development of TNK-BP,” Stan Polovets, chief executive of AAR, said in a statement.

Derrick Hall satisfied with Dbacks buying and se

first_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Okafor has missed the past three weeks — sidelined in the wins over Baltimore and Cleveland plus a loss at Pittsburgh — due to a calf injury he suffered in the fourth quarter at Detroit.Initially, Okafor said he was given a four-to-six-week timetable, “but I knew if I pressed it hard the bye week should be the longest it should be, and that’s how it was.  Everything went according to plan, there’s no setbacks and that’s how it was.”Okafor added he was able to practice some Tuesday, when Arians put the rookies and young players through a brief workout; and as it turned out, the only on-field work of the week.The team will reconvene next Tuesday.“I feel good,” Okafor said. “I think I might’ve been able to push the last week to play, but there was no need.  I feel great, though, out here.  I had a couple of reps yesterday and everything felt fine, so it shouldn’t be an issue going along.That’s good news.Okafor is arguably the Cardinals’ best pass rusher.He shares the team lead in both sacks (two) and quarterback pressures (seven) and is tied for second in quarterback hits despite playing only five of the season’s eight games.In 13 games a year ago, Okafor led the team with eight sacks, 20 quarterback pressures and 19 quarterback hits after returning from an early-season injury. “It’s great for us, man,” Okafor said.  “To have that kind of depth in the outside ‘backers room (which also includes LaMarr Woodley, Kareem Martin and Shaq Riddick), it’s truly a blessing just because we know we can leave everything out there on the field every single play and not be afraid for somebody to come back in and there won’t be no drop-off of production.  That’s what we’ve always tried to get towards.”Though frustrated with having to sit and watch, Okafor did enjoy seeing his teammates’ success, specifically Freeney, who recorded a sack in each of the past two weeks, placing him 19th on the NFL’s all-time list with 113.5.Freeney used his patented spin move to help him get to the quarterback.Might Okafor try the technique for himself now?“The thing about the spin move is you got to have it in the toolbox.  You can’t just bring it out of thin air, and I don’t know if I’ve got that yet,” he said.  “I’ll stick to what I do best.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Arizona Cardinals outside linebacker Alex Okafor (57) against Detroit Lions quarterback Dan Orlovsky (8) and Detroit Lions offensive guard Laken Tomlinson (72) during the second half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Oct. 11, 2015, in Detroit. (AP Photo/Duane Burleson) Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Rushing the quarterback is one of the few areas of concerns the Cardinals have as they take a step back this week and evaluate their first half.The Cardinals’ 13 sacks ranks 22nd in the league, tied with four other teams; and are the fewest among their fellow competitors in the NFC West.“Everybody was saying trade for a pass rusher,” Arians said, referring to Tuesday’s NFL trade deadline, before turning his attention to Okafor.  “I don’t think there’s a better one on the market. We just had one in the training room. I think he’ll add a lot to our mix.”Told of Arians’ comments moments later in the locker room, Okafor said, “He’s always believed in me, man.  There was never a doubt in that in my mind, so it was just even more encouraging.  Honestly, I’ve just got to go back there and produce and make his words true.”Of course, nothing will be handed back to him.  As Okafor told reporters, he must re-earn his spot.Rookie Markus Golden started the three games Okafor missed, registering seven tackles, including three for loss, and one quarterback hit.The Cardinals also added veteran Dwight Freeney, who was signed shortly after Okafor got hurt.With Okafor’s impending return, the Cardinals like the depth they have at outside linebacker. TEMPE, Ariz. – Following the team picture on Wednesday, Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians excused his players for the bye week, rewarding them for their effort and performance during a 6-2 start to the season with a five-day break.Just about every player couldn’t wait for the extended rest.The one notable exception was linebacker Alex Okafor.“I’m itching. Everybody is excited about this bye week; I’m itching to get back,” he said. Top Stories Comments   Share   last_img read more
