Legault and his Coalition make history as supporters bask in victory

first_imgQUEBEC CITY, Que. – Addressing Quebec for the first time as premier-designate Monday night, Francois Legault touched on a theme he returned to repeatedly during the 39-day election campaign.On the hustings he promised to make Quebec stronger and richer and to rekindle a sense of pride, and he had just been given a mandate to follow through.“We will build a stronger Quebec — a prouder Quebec!” he shouted, his voice almost cracking.Monday’s election was third time lucky for the Coalition leader as the party won 74 of the province’s 125 ridings.Seven years after creating his party and following two election attempts that fell short, Legault will become the first premier since 1966 to win a general election leading a party other than the Liberals or Parti Quebecois.Legault has positioned his party as a federalist, economically minded alternative to the Liberals, and a nationalist replacement for the Parti Quebecois.He says his government will be focused on protecting Quebec’s culture and negotiating more powers from Ottawa.But he also says his party will be federalist and “never, ever,” hold a referendum on sovereignty.During his speech, he addressed a few lines in English to the province’s anglophones.“Fellow English-speaking citizens, during this campaign you’ve been exposed to a heated debate,” he said. “The election is over now. Let’s start working together for the benefit of all Quebecers.”Legault, 61, the multimillionaire co-founder of Air Transat, chose to celebrate in the provincial capital, the centre of his political base, where his promise of lower taxes and a “business” approach to politics first gained traction.The crowd was modest for the size of the convention centre — about 300 people — but they were loud.Lorraine Simard, 65, said she has been involved in the party “since the beginning, beginning, beginning!”“Young people don’t want to separate from Canada — the wave is moving in another direction, and it’s time for something else,” she said, as images of winning Coalition candidates flashed on the jumbo screens in front of her.“I used to be a sovereigntist, but now that I see the young people, we need new ideas, new people.”Samuel Massicotte, 22, said he’s been volunteering for the Coalition for the past year and a half.He’s always been nationalist, and Legault represented “a leader I wanted to follow in a party that inspired me,” he said.“Nationalism means advocating for Quebec’s interest without wanting independence. It’s the best of both worlds.”Victorious Coalition candidates were on the floor of Quebec City’s convention centre barely 30 minutes after polls closed, smiling and confidently telling reporters they were ready to assume power.“I am not surprised, actually,” said Genevieve Guilbault, who was re-elected in her Quebec City riding. Her 2017 byelection victory — when she grabbed a Liberal seat with more than 50 per cent of the vote — was a harbinger of what was to come province-wide Monday.“Mr. Legault called for a vote of confidence and tonight we are having that,” she said. “We are seeing that Quebecers believe in us — they wanted change, and they saw us as the only possible avenue for that.”A few steps away from Guilbault was 73-year-old Emilien Caron, holding a noisemaker and celebrating with a glass of beer.“Let’s see what they can do!” he said enthusiastically of the Coalition, adding that his main concern this election was health care.“We gave a chance to (the Liberals) and look what they did — the health-care system is the same.”Legault used to be staunchly pro-independence as a key member of former PQ governments. But he quit the party and formed his own in 2011, vowing to extricate Quebec from the federalist-sovereigntist divide.The campaign was tough on Legault, who began the political race atop the polls only to see his lead decrease steadily after a series of gaffes on the issue of immigration.He had difficulty defending his policy of forcing newcomers to pass a French test or face expulsion from the province. Legault wavered and evaded questions regarding how immigrants would be removed.Despite the missteps on immigration, Legault’s party benefited from an important factor. Successive Liberal governments have been in power — except for a 2012-14 PQ minority government — since 2003. Polls consistently indicated a majority of Quebecers wanted change.In one particularly touching part of his victory speech, Legault told the crowd how “I’ve told you this before: the first quality of a premier is to love Quebecers. I will never forget that. Never!”last_img read more

Judge blocks Trumps asylum policy but delays enforcement

first_img Posted: April 9, 2019 A U.S. judge decided Monday to block the Trump administration’s policy of returning asylum seekers to Mexico as they wait for an immigration court to hear their cases, but the ruling is on hold for several days.Judge Richard Seeborg in San Francisco granted a request on behalf of 11 asylum seekers from Central America and legal advocacy groups to halt the practice while their lawsuit moves forward, but he held off on enforcing his decision until Friday to give the government a chance to ask an appeals court for a review.The policy lacks sufficient protections to ensure migrants don’t face “undue risk to their lives or freedom” in Mexico, the judge said. Seeborg also said a law that President Donald Trump’s administration cited as its authority to send back migrants does not apply to asylum seekers such as those who sued.It was not immediately clear whether the administration would ask an appeals court to put the ruling on hold. The U.S. Department of Justice declined to comment. Trump tweeted that the ruling was “unfair to the U.S.”The launch of the policy in January at the nation’s busiest border crossing — in San Diego — marked an unprecedented change to the U.S. asylum system, government officials and asylum experts said. Families seeking asylum typically have been released in the U.S. with notices to appear in court.The Trump administration says the policy responds to a crisis at the southern border that has overwhelmed the ability of immigration officials to detain migrants. Growing numbers of families are fleeing poverty and gang violence in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.The ruling came a day after Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen resigned and as the administration faces repeated court setbacks on strict anti-immigration measures that were a signature campaign promise for Trump, including losses on such policies as separating families at the border and ending protections for young immigrants.The lawsuit says the Trump administration is violating U.S. law by failing to adequately evaluate the dangers that migrants face in Mexico.Under the new policy, asylum seekers are not guaranteed interpreters or lawyers and don’t get to argue to a judge that they face the potential of persecution or torture if they are sent back to Mexico, Judy Rabinovitz, an attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union, said at a March court hearing.Seeborg said in his ruling that “further procedural protections would be required to conform to the government’s acknowledged obligation to ensure aliens are not returned to unduly dangerous circumstances.”The ACLU and other groups also argue in the lawsuit that a law allowing the return of some immigrants to Mexico does not apply to asylum seekers who cross the border illegally or arrive at a border crossing without proper documents.Seeborg agreed, saying the “plain language” of the law supported that interpretation.“Try as it may, the Trump administration cannot simply ignore our laws in order to accomplish its goal of preventing people from seeking asylum in the United States,” Rabinovitz said in a statement after the ruling.The administration hopes that making asylum seekers wait in Mexico will discourage weak claims and help reduce an immigration court backlog of more than 800,000 cases.Justice Department attorney Scott Stewart said at the March hearing that there was a process to protect immigrants who could face harm in Mexico. All 11 plaintiffs in the lawsuit are represented by attorneys, and 10 already have appeared for court proceedings, he said.Border Patrol arrests, the most widely used gauge of illegal crossings, have risen sharply over the last year but are relatively low in historical terms after hitting a 46-year low in 2017.The launch of the policy followed months of delicate talks between the U.S. and Mexico. Mexicans and children traveling alone are exempt from it.___ AP, AP Judge blocks Trump’s asylum policy but delays enforcement April 9, 2019 Categories: California News, Local San Diego News, National & International News Tags: Immigration FacebookTwitterlast_img read more

Nipsey Hussle Beloved LA Rapper And Activist Lived As A Patron To

He was 33.Hussle, born Ermias Asghedom, highlighted life in South Los Angeles and the socio-economic struggles people in the community faced, from single mothers working to feed their families to his own rise from financial struggle, through his poignant lyrics. He released his much-awaited official debut album, Victory Lap, in February 2018 after years of releasing several mixtapes, including The Marathon mixtape. For Hussle, creating the album was a weaving of his experiences and represented a coming full circle on his own terms. “We want to just hear great lyrics, great music, great flow and great storytelling and so I just wanted to really be intentional that that was the goal with the album,” he told the Recording Academy. “You know, I even had a conversation with the label people and it was just like, you know, the heads of the label, but what do you all expect from me on this one? Because for me, but my goal, my big picture goal to move forward and to make a step toward what my goal is as an artist, I need to make something really authentic and really organic on this first one.”The debut album was nominated for Best Rap Album at the 61st GRAMMY Awards and was a project that Hussle made with fans in mind.”When I went into recording this album I [had] a ton of mixed tapes … So I just went back through all of my projects and I listened and I put myself in the mindset of a fan. And I was like what made me a fan in it, you know? And each project had two or three moments that people really held onto,” he said. “Some have more than others and I wanted the album to be a collection of those moments. I didn’t want to be nostalgic, but I wanted to be aware of why they’re connected.Hussle, a native of the Crenshaw district in South Los Angeles, was also an entrepreneur and activist who was heavily invested in his community. A day before the launch of his album, he opened a co-working STEM Center in the area called Vector90 Too Big To Fail. He owned a clothing store on Slauson called The Marathon Clothing.Beyond being a businessman and an artist, Hussle was also a loving father of two. Fatherhood served as an inspiration for his music:”Fatherhood has affected and inspired me deeply … when I went about doing music, I was really in the studio, spending the night, you know, sacrificing my personal time. Just really putting all my energy and time into the studio and I thought that was the most effective way to do it, he said. “But then having a kid, my daughter years back and then my son recently, it made me understand a balance and you might even get more inspired leaving the studio some time, going out and living and just taking her, your daughter, your kids somewhere and you might come back and what you’ve been trying to do sitting in this room wasn’t going to get done sitting in this room.You had to go out and breathe a little bit and come back in and you refresh and you ready to go. “Hussle saw life as a metaphor for a marathon that included not only his resiliency, but also his community’s. “Make sure that you stick to what you believe in,” he said. “The story that I’m telling on this album made the moment that I’m in even more special and important because it shows you the distance and the ground we covered.”Hussle is survived by his girlfriend, actress Lauren London, and his two children.One Take: Nipsey Hussle On L.A., Ice Cream, Kendrick Lamar & MoreRead more Nipsey Hussle Lived As A Patron To His Community nipsey-hussle-beloved-la-rapper-and-activist-lived-patron-his-community Email last_img read more

Bosch built a sensor platform just for flying taxis

first_img Share your voice All of the electric urban aircraft unveiled at Uber Elevate 2018 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better Enlarge ImageThis little box is all Bosch thinks flying taxis will need to operate the sensors required for autonomous flight. Bosch Flying taxis are a growing area of interest as congestion continues to get worse. Bosch is a supplier with its hands all over the automotive industry, and now, it wants to get into the flying-taxi game by leveraging its current strengths and applying them to a burgeoning field.Bosch on Tuesday unveiled its new sensor platform, which is aimed specifically at air taxis — small, short-distance aircraft that will likely operate without human assistance. Using its knowledge from developing sensor platforms for automated development cars, Bosch has combined a batch of sensors on a single platform that the supplier believes will be able to give air-taxi development the parts it needs without the insane cost usually dedicated to aerospace tech.The supplier says the system is plug-and-play, which means it should be able to integrate into a number of existing flying-taxi systems without too many complications. Bosch didn’t give a full listing of every sensor built into the platform, but it did call out a few: Acceleration sensors track movement, yaw-rate sensors determine angle of attack, magnetic field sensors monitor its heading, and pressure sensors measure altitude and airspeed. “Through our Bosch solution, we aim to make civil aviation with flying taxis affordable for a wide range of providers,” said Marcus Parentis, who heads Bosch’s team in charge of these control units, in a statement. “We are talking to air taxi manufacturers from the aerospace and automotive industries, as well as with startups that build air vehicles and are looking to provide sharing services.”We still have a way to go before flying taxis even get approval to take off — the FAA does not mess around, after all — but Bosch believes they’re definitely a part of our future. It pointed to analysis from Morgan Stanley consultants that claims the flying-taxi market could be as high as $1.5 trillion by 2040. Sounds a little lofty, but hey, we may as well aim high. 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value Post a comment 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous More From Roadshow Tags Auto Tech Future Cars 8 Photos 0 Boschlast_img read more

Trump to let US firms sell tech to Huawei

first_img Post a comment US firms can again deal with Huawei. Óscar Gutiérrez/CNET President Donald Trump agreed Saturday to lift some restrictions against US companies selling high-tech gear to Chinese telecom giant Huawei, says a report. “We’re talking about equipment where there’s not a great national-emergency problem with it,” Trump said after a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping, according to The Wall Street Journal.In May, Trump signed an executive order essentially banning Huawei because of national security concerns that the company is too closely tied to the Chinese government and that its gear could be used to spy on other countries and companies. Huawei has repeatedly said those fears are unfounded.

Trump said the deal to restart talks would see the US delaying added tariffs on Chinese products in return for China buying American farm goods. It’s not yet clear exactly what Huawei restrictions will be lifted. “We’re going to work with China on where we left off to see if we can make a deal,” Trump reportedly said during a news conference. The president said he’d hold off on the Huawei issue until the end of negotiations, the Journal said.John Neuffer, president of the Semiconductor Industry Association, a trade group for makers of chips for computers, phones and other equipment, told the Journal he needed more details on what Huawei can now buy from member companies. He added, though, that he’s “encouraged the talks are restarting and additional tariffs are on hold.”Unnamed sources told the Journal that US national security officials have been exploring ways of narrowing the Huawei prohibitions so they pinpoint sales of US gear used in “chokepoints,” places where the Chinese company’s tech could control wireless networks. Security experts have voiced concern about foreign powers disrupting US communications networks, especially during a national emergency.Originally published June 28, 9:44 a.m. PT.Update, 10:20 a.m.: Adds mention of concern about “chokepoints.” Share your voice 0 Huaweilast_img read more

Samsung Galaxy S10 5G to finally hit stores on this date Top

first_imgWeight Close Connectivity NFC, MST *May differ by market and mobile operator. Samsung Galaxy S10 5G coming to South Korean markets first.Samsung Mobile PressIf rumours are to be believed, the Galaxy S10 5G will not come cheap and for obvious reasons, will be cost around 1.5 million Won (approx. $1,328/€1,167/ Rs 91,194). Considering the Apple iPhone XS and XS Max, the Galaxy S10 5G price looks modest.Samsung Galaxy S10 5G has a pretty much similar design language as the S10, but one key difference is that it has a bigger 6.7-inch Quad HD+ Curved Dynamic AMOLED with 19:9 aspect ratio.Samsung phone houses quad-camera one the back, one 12 MP wide-angle, 16 MP ultra-wide angle and a 12 MP telephoto sensor and Time-of-Flight snapper with laser autofocus and LED flash. On the front, it packs 10MP Dual Pixel shooter with a 3D Depth sensor.The Galaxy S10 5G comes with Android Pie-based One UI, 8GB RAM, 256GB and a 4,500mAh battery. Like previous years, Samsung is offering Galaxy S10 series in Exynos 9820 processor in select markets including India, but rest of the features will be the same as the Snapdragon 855 variant.Another most interesting batter feature shared by all Galaxy S10 series models is the PowerShare. It offers reverse charge capability, meaning if your friend owns a phone with wireless charging capability, but is run out of power, he/she can place it on your fully charged Galaxy S10 series phone to power up the former. It can even charge a smartwatch provided it has WPC Qi wireless charging certification. World’s biggest smartphone-maker Samsung unveiled an array of Galaxy S10 series models—Galaxy S10, S10e, S10+ and Galaxy S10 5G in February. The first three models are already available in the market and now, it’s the turn of the ultra top-end mobile to hit stores.Samsung is slated to be released the Galaxy S10 5G model first in the company’s home market South Korea on April 5, reported the local daily Korea Herald. It can be noted that the device’s price is still a mystery and also, the company will be not be taking pre-orders, instead, it is bringing straight to the store shelves early next month.

first_imgIf Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley sticks to the fiscal consolidation path while presenting the Union Budget for FY2018, there is a higher likelihood of a repo rate cut in the Monetary Policy Committee’s February 2017 meeting, Aditi Nayar, a senior economist at ICRA, said in a note released on Monday (January 15). RBI governor Urjit Patel conveys subtle message to Modi Govt before Budget 2017However, Aditi added that the room for incremental rate cuts would be limited to 25 bps over the next six months as the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) focuses more on achieving the mid-point of the inflation target range of four per cent. “With concerns regarding the sustainability of the rebound in industrial growth in November 2016 and headline CPI inflation likely to undershoot the RBI’s target for Q4 FY2017, there is a higher likelihood of a repo rate cut in February,” she said.On the inflation front, ICRA expects the CPI inflation to record one more sub-3.5 per cent figure in January 2017, before recording an uptick in February-March 2017 as the favourable base effect wanes. Overall, the rating agency continues to expect CPI inflation to undershoot the RBI’s projection of five per cent for the fourth quarter of FY2017. Going ahead, food items, particularly vegetables, may continue to display a seasonal moderation in January 2017. Moreover, a 13 per cent rise in rabi acreage for pulses has led to a decline in prices in the ongoing month. Overall, rabi sowing is seven per cent higher than year-ago levels, though on a small base. While precipitation has been low in the post-monsoon season, healthy reservoir levels on a seasonally adjusted basis would support the yields, ICRA said.Earlier last week, government data showed that the CPI inflation eased to a 25-month low at 3.4 per cent in December 2016 from 3.6 per cent in November 2016. Food and beverages inflation declined to a 59-month low at two per cent in December 2016 from 2.6 percent in November 2016. The core-CPI inflation (excluding food and beverages and fuel and light) eased marginally to 4.9 per cent in December 2016 from five per cent in November 2016, displaying a limited reaction to changes in supply and demand after the note ban.last_img read more
