Clearly inadequate Nunavut child advocate reports on mental health

first_imgKent DriscollAPTN NewsNunavut’s Representative for Children and Youth says mental health services available to the territory’s young people are not meeting their needs.Sherry McNeil-Mulak, who led an exhaustive review of Nunavut’s mental health regime for youth, said the results were similar across the board.“While there are many positive initiatives, and dedicated individuals, working to provide mental health services to young people across the territory, the current system is clearly inadequate, and is failing to meet the needs of Nunavut’s children and youth,” McNeil-Mulak said, having interviewed 475 individuals, including 225 young people.According to the report, those responsible for mental health know more needs to be done.Eighty-two per cent of Government of Nunavut service providers told the McNeil-Mulak’s office that mental health services are not adequate, while 72 per cent said the quality of existing services isn’t enough.Members of the public were even harder on the territorial government, with 91 per cent saying there isn’t enough mental health programming for youth, and 83 per cent saying that what exists is of poor quality.There are 15 recommendations contained within the report, which will be presented to the Nunavut Legislative Assembly later this year.“Each of the recommendations in the report is aimed at improving the unacceptable state of mental health services for children and youth in Nunavut,” McNeil-Mulak explained.Among McNeil-Mulak’s recommendations is that the territory begin to follow a previously accepted 2015 recommendation from the Coroner’s office to provide a formal follow-up protocol after suicide attempts, including contacting family.“We are aware that much of what we heard during our review has been said before, and that some of the recommendations that we have made, have been made before,” she said. “However, until children and youth in Nunavut are able to access the mental health services that they need, that they have a right to, in their own territory, we will continue to urge the Government of Nunavut to implement these recommendations.”Sherry McNeil-Mulak (middle) says more than 200 youth in Nunavut were interviewed for the report. Kent Driscoll/APTN.Recommendations are broken down into five categories: mental health in schools, mental health services, mental health workforce, and awareness and recreational activities.The lack of services plays a huge role in Nunavut’s staggering suicide rate.Between Nunavut’s founding in April 1999 and the end of 2017, 545 Inuit died by suicide, 62 per cent of whom were under the age of 25.The report points out that mental health in Nunavut’s youth is linked to a variety of factors, each one weighing down on the young person. Seventy per cent of Inuit homes are food insecure, eight times the national average.Thirty-nine per cent of Inuit in Nunavut live in overcrowded homes. In 2017 and 2018, 519 people in Nunavut were admitted to family violence shelters; 268 of those were children.Nunavut’s sexual assault rate is nine times the national average.A large part of the review’s efforts were spent talking to actual Nunavut youth.“A key priority for our office when conducting this review was to elevate the voices of young people,” McNeil-Mulaq explained. “Throughout our review, young people from across this territory offered their thoughts and ideas on how to improve mental health services to better meet their needs, and we listened.”The interviews with youth are the most telling part of the report. Currently, there are no clinical mental health services in any of Nunavut’s schools, and the students told the Advocate’s Office that they are desperately needed.When asked what would improve mental health services, one youth responded: “Having a counsellor other than just our guidance counsellor in the school.”The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child is used as an example throughout the report. Signed by 150 countries in 1990, it contains 54 articles that outline basic human rights for children.Of those 54, the Child Advocate’s office says Nunavut is failing on 16 of the read more

CDB to help pay Haitis 20182019 catastrophe insurance premiums

We are pleased that the Government of Haiti is collaborating with development partners like CDB to design and implement development projects that focus on reducing the country’s risk to natural hazards, and help it adapt to climate change,” he said.In the event of a future disaster, however, Haiti’s parametric insurance contract under CCRIF SPC is designed to pay out quickly and reliably.“This type of insurance can play a unique role in tackling humanitarian emergencies by providing quick liquidity at a time when there is a dramatic reduction in Government revenue and, at the same time, a need for large government services expenditures,”Best added.Given the country’s fragility and high vulnerability to natural hazards, in its 2017-2021 Country Strategy for Haiti, CDB committed to continue paying the country’s annual CCRIF SPC premiums.Further, in the most recent negotiations for the replenishment of the Bank’s Special Development Fund, contributors agreed that there should be a continuation of the grant-supported programme of assistance for Haiti. Disaster risk reduction is among the main areas in which CDB will invest.In 2017, CDB approved a disaster risk reduction and climate adaptation initiative for Ile-à-Vache, an island off the south coast of the southern peninsula of Haiti, which suffered extensive damage from Hurricane Matthew.To date, Haiti has received four payouts: one after the 2010 earthquake (USD7.7 mn), two following Hurricane Matthew in October 2016 (USD20.39 mn under the tropical cyclone policy and USD3.02 mn under the excess rainfall policy), and USD162,000 in 2017 for Hurricane Irma. The latter was paid out under the Aggregated Deductible Cover, which provides a minimum payment for events that are objectively not sufficient to trigger a CCRIF SPC policy. read more

Court sides with UCIDA on Cook Inlet Salmon management

first_imgA federal appeals court has sided with United Cook Inlet Drifters Association [UCIDA] in a lawsuit seeking to return Cook Inlet salmon management to federal fisheries control. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled this week [wednesday] to send the suit back to federal District court to have an earlier judgement entered in favor of the commercial fishing organization.LISTEN NOWThe suit, filed in 2013, charges state salmon management disregards certain regulations of the Magnuson – Stevens Act, resulting in underharvesting of Inlet salmon. UCIDA vice president Eric Huebsch said the organization filed suit after a North Pacific Fishery Management Council decision [in 2011] removed Cook Inlet salmon from the federal management plan.Huebsch said the decision requires the NPFMC [the Council] go back and work with the state on a salmon management plan for Cook Inlet that complies with the Magnuson – Stevens act, and then delegate day-to-day management back to the state.Chris Oliver, executive director of the NPFMC, [the Council], said he is not able to comment on the 9th Circuit decision until there is time to confer with other federal agencies on the meaning of the decision.

Qatar to merge Qatargas and RasGas to create a bigger entity

first_imgQatar will merge two of its state-owned liquefied natural gas (LNG) firms to facilitate streamlining of distribution along with the creation of necessary scale for higher operational efficiency.The peninsular Arab country will combine Qatargas, the world’s’ largest producer of  (LNG), with smaller RasGas to create a bigger entity, according to a report in Saudi Gazette.The Gulf country is the world’s largest producer of LNG, which is produced by chilling natural gas to liquid form for shipment on tanker ships.The report quoted president and chief executive officer of Qatar Petroleum, Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, as saying that the plan to merge the two state-controlled firms would create a “unique global energy operator in terms of size, service and reliability”.The merger is expected to be completed within 12 months and save hundreds of millions of dollars.Notably, major global oil firms have a stake in these two LNG firms. While Total, ConocoPhillips, Exxon Mobil and Royal Dutch Shell have stakes in Qatargas production lines, RasGas is a joint venture between Qatar Petroleum and Exxon Mobil with the latter holding a minority stake in the company.Allaying fears of any possible job losses due to this merger, the CEO of Qatar Petroleum said there would be no job losses on the operating side.According to analysts, the move is seen as Qatar’s effort to adapt to prevailing low energy pricing regime in the world.last_img read more

Tensions surge as US accuses Iran of attacking tankers

first_imgStill image taken from a US military handout video purports to show Iran`s Revolutionary Guard (IRGC) removing an unexploded limpet mine from the side of the Kokuka Courageous Tanker on 13 June. Photo: AFPThe United States accused Iran of carrying out attacks that left two tankers ablaze in the Gulf of Oman on Thursday, escalating tensions across the region and sending world oil prices soaring.Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned that Washington will defend its forces and allies in the region, and the United States pressed its case as the UN Security Council met to address the incident — the second in a month in the strategic sea lane.With tensions spiraling between Iran and the United States, the European Union called for “maximum restraint” as UN chief Antonio Guterres warned the world cannot afford a major confrontation in the Gulf.Iran labelled the apparent attacks as “suspicious,” as its Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei rebuffed overtures by visiting Japanese leader Shinzo Abe to open talks with US president Donald Trump.But Pompeo said there was strong evidence of Iran’s culpability, after the US Navy said it had spotted an unexploded magnetic limpet mine stuck to the hull of one of the vessels.The US top diplomat said that in region only Iran had the ability to undertake such an operation.”It is the assessment of the United States that the Islamic Republic of Iran is responsible for the attacks,” Pompeo announced.”This is based on intelligence, the weapons used, the level of expertise needed to execute the operation, recent similar Iranian attacks on shipping, and the fact that no proxy group operating in the area has the resources and proficiency to act with such a high degree of sophistication,” he said.Explosions off Iran coastThe two vessels were struck by explosions in the early daylight hours Thursday after leaving the Strait of Hormuz and traveling around 25 nautical miles off Iran’s southern coast headed toward Asia.The Norwegian-owned Front Altair ethanol tanker was hit by three explosions, according to the Norwegian Maritime Authority, and continued to burn late Thursday.Explosions also struck the Japanese-owned Kokuka Courageous, which was loaded down with methanol, but the fire on board was soon extinguished.There was no claim of responsibility for the blasts, which struck both tankers at the waterline.Iran said its navy rescued several dozen crew members of the two vessels, while the US Navy said it had picked up 21 from the Kokuka Courageous.Washington has dispatched the destroyer USS Mason to the scene “to provide assistance,” the US Central Command said in a statement.Series of attacksPompeo called Thursday’s tanker explosions “the latest in a series of attacks” he alleged were undertaken by Iran or its “proxies,” including, he said, a missile attack against a southern Saudi Arabia airport by the Iran-aligned Huthis in Yemen on Wednesday.”Taken as a whole, these unprovoked attacks present a clear threat to international peace and security, a blatant assault on the freedom of navigation and an unacceptable campaign of escalating tension by Iran,” he said.The United States has accused the Islamic republic over 12 May attacks on four tankers anchored off the United Arab Emirates port of Fujairah, just at the entrance of the Hormuz Strait.Pompeo said Iran was lashing out because of the impact of US and international sanctions, but said it had no right “to attack innocent civilians and engage in nuclear blackmail.””The United States will defend its forces, interests and stand with our partners and allies to safeguard global commerce and regional stability,” he warned.The US also called Thursday for the UN Security Council to confront the “clear threat” posed by Iran, as the council met behind closed doors to hear a briefing on Washington’s assessment that Tehran was responsible.Oil prices jumped at the threat of open conflict at the Hormuz chokepoint, through which transit some 15 million barrels of crude oil every day, as well as hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of imports for the Gulf countries.In London, the Brent benchmark jumped 2.2 per cent to $61.31 a barrel, while in New York, the US crude standard West Texas Intermediate, also rose 2.2 per cent, to $52.28.”We are in a dangerous moment in the region with this emerging pattern of attacks,” said Elizabeth Dickinson, senior analyst with International Crisis Group.”Any miscalculation or misunderstanding risks a spiral toward more direct confrontation,” she told AFP.Abe in TehranThe latest incident came as Abe was on an unprecedented visit to Tehran, seeking to defuse tensions.”It is essential that Iran plays a constructive role in building solid peace and stability in the Middle East,” Abe told a joint news conference with Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani.”Today, tension is rising in the Middle East. Some experts point out that the conflict might be triggered accidentally,” he said.Supreme Leader Khamenei rejected Abe’s overture, saying: “We have no doubt in your goodwill and seriousness, but regarding what you said the US president told you, I don’t consider Trump as a person worthy of exchanging messages with.”In Washington, Pompeo said the United States aimed to bring Iran back into negotiations — “at the right time” — over its nuclear program and regional activities.But Trump dismissed the idea of early talks.”I personally feel that it is too soon to even think about making a deal. They are not ready, and neither are we!” he tweeted.last_img

Kojo Nnamdi Celebrates 20 Years

first_imgBy George Kevin Jordan, Special to the AFROHe has been the voice of our city, interviewing more politicians and public figures than we can count, all with the goal of understanding the big issues of the day so D.C. residents can be informed citizens and make smart decisions about their lives. District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser proclaimed May 13 as Kojo Nmandi Day in honor of his work and legacy.D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser proclaimed May 13 as the date to celebrate radio host Kojo Nnamdi’s work and legacy. (Photo Credit: Tyrone Turner/WAMU)“Kojo has been doing this for more than two decades and, in many ways, is the heartbeat of D.C. and embodies everything it means to be a Washingtonian,” Bowser said in a ceremony for the broadcaster. ‘Everybody in this building knows you go to Kojo when you have something to say.”“Kojo is tough but fair and definitely aided by that sweet carribean accent in asking the questions that drive at the truth and hold our public officials accountable,” Bowser added. “Kojo Nmamdi Day” is a precursor to a burst of events in celebration of Nnamdi’s 20 years hosting “The Kojo Nnamdi Show” every weekday at noon on WAMU.A native of Guyana, Nnamdi immigrated to the United States in 1968. He was deeply involved in the Civil Rights Movement. He hosted “Evening Exchange” a public affairs television program broadcast by WHUT-TV at Howard University from 1985 – 2011. Prior to that he worked as a news editor, and then news director for the local program “The Daily Drum from 1973 to 1985.Nnamdi told the AFRO that he still pushes to get real answers from each person he interviews.“The challenge for me is to try to get the individuals I’m interviewing, especially someone who’s a public figure who interviews quite frequently, to get that person to either A) say something they haven’t said before or B) take a deeper look at policies or statements,” Nnamdi said. “I try to get little nuggets that keep the listener interested.” Working as a radio host for years has its benefits and challenges according to Nnamdi.“Being on radio has advantages and disadvantages,” Nnamdi said. “A disadvantage is people can’t see you. But that has its advantages. Since people can’t see you they are forced to use their imagination and figure out what I look like, what our guests look like.”“It’s also intimate. The relationship to radio is so much more intimate.”Having interviewed countless people, Nnamdi said he doesn’t keep a dream list of possible interview subjects. But he does find himself discovering a passion for someone he didn’t think he would until they were in the booth with him.One example Nnamdi used was Harry Belafonte, actor, musician and activist.“I could never imagine myself interviewing Harry Belafonte, but followed his career for a long time,” Nnamdi said. “He’s fascinating.”As far as the next big scoop, Nnamdi is pretty clear where we need to turn the needle of focus. “The next big story of our time is the rise of White nationalists around the world,” Nnamdi said. “I think most of us have never lived through a period were we saw a marginalized population being pushed back against the way we are seeing it now.”He added that maybe our ancestors during reconstruction felt the push back that many are feeling and seeing now.Thankfully Nnamdi is here to guide us through the process every step of the way. “Kojo 20 Celebration,” is set for June 6.

NYCC 2018 Daredevil Season Three is Bullseyes Origin Story

first_imgThe third season of Daredevil is two short weeks away. We got a release date, we got an amazing trailer earlier this week, what could the cast and crew possibly bring to New York Comic Con? If anyone in the audience was hoping for a full first episode, they didn’t get it. Instead, they got some truly exciting clips from the season to come, and one big confirmation. In what Marvel Television head Jeph Loeb called “the worst kept secret in Marvel history,” he threw it to actor Wilson Bethel, listed until now as FBI Agent Dex, to deliver the news.“It’s an honor to tell the story of how Benjamin Poindexter will ultimately become Bullseye,” Bethel said. In a series of clips, the NYCC audience saw Wilson Fisk (oh yes, he’s back too), take this angry, aggressive FBI agent under his wing and turn him into… well, if not Bullseye just yet, a man who wears a hat with a target on it. That’s not the only costume he wears either. This season is based in part on Frank Miller’s Born Again arc. This time, instead of a mental patient, Wilson Fisk grooms his proto-bullseye into a violent Daredevil imposter. New showrunner Erik Oleson reveals we have an emotional and action-packed season ahead of us.Emotion and character were repeated talking points throughout the panel.  Charlie Cox said when he initially played Matt Murdock in Season One, he thought he was playing a man who’d reached the bottom of the barrel. The subsequent season and The Defenders only showed him how much further Matt had to fall. This time, Cox hopes, Matt really is at his lowest point. He teased that we’re going to see a new vulnerability for Matt. That possibly comes in the form of Sister Maggie, making her first appearance in the TV series as well.“Maggie provides a spiritual and moral compass to Matt this season,” Oleson said. “She plays a critical role in helping him process everything that came to pass in Season Two and The Defenders.” Sister Maggie is played by Joanne Whalley, who Oseland says performed with such a gravitas that only got better as the season went on.As for Foggy and Karen, they’ll have their own full story arcs this season. Oleson said he wanted to make a drama where every character is the hero of their own story, where he can build and flesh out each character’s emotional journey. “The Karen and Foggy storylines play a major role in the prescription for how to defeat fear and the narcissistic tyrants who use fear to divide us against one another.” Yes, this season very much goes there, it sounds like. What Oleson is trying to say with this season only became clearer when he talked about how he thinks we can defeat fear. “The power of a free press, the power of the law and the power of collective action, friendship, love, faith, that will pull us through.”Pictured: Vincent D’Onofrio, Deborah Ann Woll-Photo by: Patrick Lewis / StarPix for NetflixWhen the season begins, Karen and Foggy aren’t at their best. Elden Hanson described Foggy as trying to find his footing now that he thinks he’s lost his best friend. In that journey, we’ll actually get to meet Foggy’s family, who we haven’t seen before. “Weirdly, the guy [they] cast to play my brother looks exactly like my younger brother,” Hanson said.As for Karen, she is convinced that Matt is still alive. Deborah Ann Woll explained why that’s so important to Karen. “With how things were left with Karen and Matt, there’s a lot of guilt there and things unresolved,” Woll said. “With Foggy off living his fabulous life, I felt really adrift and if I allowed myself to believe he was gone there would just be nothing.”Pictured: Elden Hanson, Wilson Bethel-Photo by: Patrick Lewis / StarPix for NetflixThough much of the panel was focused on emotions and the individual characters’ stories, the action certainly wasn’t ignored. They showed us the first fight between Daredevil and Bullseye, and it’s exactly as thrilling and brutal as you’ve come to expect from this series. To hear Oleson talk though, there’s an even better one they didn’t show. “Remember the hallway fight?” he asked as if there was any way we would have forgotten. “Yeah, we top that. There is a sequence this season which I was not sure we were going to be able to pull off. It required me making a phone call to Jeph (Loeb) and some others to ask permission to stop filming for the day just so the crew could rehearse an action sequence for one take. That was a brave choice, to allow us to do it. I think when people see what we pulled of, what Charlie Cox manages to do… it’s going to be something that everyone in this audience is going to love. ”Oleson said he wanted the action sequences to have real, emotional stakes and for them to be unpredictable. Matt, he cautioned, may lose some of them, and those losses will have real consequences. We were able to speak to Oleson in a separate interview, where he told us even more about his vision for Season Three. He again reiterated his desire to say something about our current era with Season Three. He wanted to tell a story about how to defeat “narcissistic tyrants who use our fears to manipulate us.” Just as important though, he wanted to make sure this season wasn’t just Daredevil’s story.Pictured: Erik Oleson (Showrunner)-Photo by: Marion Curtis / StarPix for Netflix-Location: Madison Square Garden“When I walked in the door, Marvel had a number of ideas as options for me,” he said. “For instance, the return of Wilson Fisk, they knew that Vincent was interested in coming back. I knew that I had the ability to take from some of my favorite comic runs as well. I wanted to treat Season Three as if it were my own run of the comics… I wanted to put my own stamp on the show. I also wanted to tell a story which more fully fleshed out the ensemble. I’m a firm believer that no one is really a sidekick.”Tonally, Oleson describes Season Three as somewhere between the first season of Daredevil, and The Sopranos. “My style is more character driven. Everything is emotionally honest, and then you have these lightning moments of Marvel, where you’re like, ‘Oh that’s right! I’m watching this awesome show that has these amazing iconic moments and action sequences.’ But everyone is able to be real in the scenes.”As far as what comic runs he’s drawing from, Oleson gave us a small list. “Season Three is an original story that takes elements from Born Again, from Guardian Devil, Out, some other aspects. It’s an original story so that people who aren’t familiar with the comics can watch it and say, ‘wow, that was a really great crime drama, twisty turny conspiracy thriller,” he said. “That’s really what we wrote. And people who are fans of the comics are going to leap out of their seats and say, ‘Oh my god they used that frame!’ My fellow geeks are hopefully going to cackle with delight as we did in the writers’ room making this stuff up.”Erik OlesonThe third season of Daredevil kicks off with Matt Murdock dealing with the fact that he survived the building collapse at the end of Defenders, and Electra didn’t. “He’s damaged physically, he’s damaged emotionally and he’s damaged spiritually,” Oseland said. “He’s very angry at God for what he thought should have happened. All the sacrifices he has made have been for nought and he’s been punished for them instead… The guiding principle is, you can only be free if you confront your fears because your fears are what enslave you. Every single character in the ensemble this season has some fear that they may not be conscious of that’s driving them this season.”And yes, that includes Daredevil. “The Man Without Fear is not without fear,”Oleson said. “Every single true human being on the planet is afraid of something. And the people who understand what you are afraid of and can use that against you can rise in power, can manipulate you to their own ends. Also, you can hold yourself back from your true nature and your own best self if you act out of fear. You are listening to the Devil on your shoulder, not the Angel.” It kinda feels right that an interview about Daredevil starts sounding like church at some point.As far as what the future holds for Daredevil, Oleson said this current season is a closed-ended story arc, but he put plenty of springboards in that allow any future seasons to go in a number of different directions. “One of the great aspects of the comics is after there’s a run, you can go in a million different directions. Certainly, there are a number of very salacious and awesome possibilities after this season and I’ll have to go beat somebody up so I get to do it,” he said.Pictured: Charlie Cox, Vincent D’Onofrio-Photo by: Patrick Lewis / StarPix for NetflixOne of the most fun aspects of recent Marvel Netflix seasons has, of course, been the crossover episodes. It’s exciting when Luke Cage shows up in Jessica Jones or when Iron Fist turns out to be bearable in Season Two of Luke Cage. According to Oleson, we won’t be seeing any of those in this season of Daredevil. “This season, I very much wanted to get back to the core Daredevil characters and fully flesh them out. I did not want to distract the audience with fun, but ultimately distracting, drop-bys from other characters in the universe. That’s not to say that in the future that won’t happen, but I did not do any crossovers in Season Three. That was a deliberate decision.”As far as future crossovers, even he can’t say. “I don’t know what the future is,” Oleson told me. “Much to Marvel’s chagrin, the showrunners of each of these shows actually talk to each other. If they could, they’d lock us all in hermetically sealed bubbles. But we’re all pals, we all go out to dinners together so, sorry Marvel. Generally speaking, Marvel has plans to take over the entire universe, and I am privy to only a very small sliver of that. I had a terrific experience, and I’d be eager to do it again.”If Season Three is as good as he makes it sound, we’d be eager for that to happen too.
