APTN National NewsMissing Women Commission of Inquiry head Wally Oppal had invited all of the Aboriginal organizations currently boycotting the inquiry to return, saying their input was needed.But the groups have reaffirmed their boycott, with one representative calling the process “tainted and corrupt”, adding that they “don’t see how anything healthy and meaningful can come out of this inquiry at this time”.APTN National News reporter Rob Smith has the details.
The Secretary-General heard reports from representatives of about a dozen UN agencies, including a senior official from the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) who said some 45,000 Afghan refugees had been moved out of the temporary camp at Jalozai, which would be closed in about two weeks. The managed return of refugees to Afghanistan is expected to get under way by the end of March. Afghanistan was also on the agenda at a subsequent hour-long meeting between the Secretary-General and Pakistan’s Foreign Minister, Abdul Sattar. In addition, the two leaders discussed the India-Pakistan relationship, including the tensions over Kashmir. Addressing the media at a joint press conference after their meeting, the Secretary-General stressed the need to peacefully resolve Pakistan’s differences with India, including over Kashmir. While urging an immediate military de-escalation, he called for a two-pronged approach involving “sustained and determined action against extremist armed groups” and “sustained and determined dialogue between Pakistan and India.” He also noted that “a stable Afghanistan is in the interest of all its neighbours, and constructive cross-border relations would give a real boost to stability throughout the region.” Kofi Annan and Pakistan President Pervez MusharrafAlso today, Mr. Annan made an unscheduled visit to the Pakistan Human Development Forum, a three-day meeting where President Pervez Musharraf laid out the Government’s plan for economic revival, poverty reduction, good governance and political restructuring. In the evening, he met with President Musharraf, who then hosted a working dinner for the Secretary-General.
New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has re-injured his left ankle and the team isn’t sure when he will return.In Saturday’s game against the Boston Red Sox, the team captain was pulled for a pinch-runner after hitting an RBI single in the sixth inning.The 39-year-old later went to a hospital for a precautionary CT scan. The Yankees office said the initial results were negative.Jeter has been out most of the season recovering from the broken left ankle he suffered in last year’s playoffs. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman says that if the team wasn’t playing to make the playoffs, he could simply take a few days off to rest.Since being back, Jeter has hit .190 in 17 games.
Editors at The Boston Globe came up with the idea the day after a suicide bomber killed 22 people and wounded dozens more at a concert at the city thousands of miles away in northern England.”We decided it would be nice to do something for the people of the Manchester Evening News,” says Emily Procknal, community relations manager at The Boston Globe. Journalists at the Boston daily were themselves the recipients of pizza sent by the Chicago Tribune in the wake of the double bombing of the Massachusetts’s city marathon in April 2013.Neither is it the first time the gesture has been repeated. Several media outlets sent pizzas to a newspaper in Orlando after a nightclub attack in June 2016, others were sent to The Baltimore Sun as journalists covered riots that swept the city in April 2015. It was a small gesture that kept a fabled Boston newspaper fed during difficult times, one they thought frazzled reporters in Manchester would appreciate too.So they sent pizzas from across the Atlantic.

Passengers check in at Thai Airways counters at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport February 23, 2015.Reuters fileThai Airways International Public Co (Thai Airways), the state-owned carrier of Thailand, posted net profit for the first time in four years. The net profit for the year ended December 2016 was Thai Baht (THB) 15 million, or about $429,000, a marked improvement from THB 13 billion loss reported in 2015.Read: Thailand may go slow on plans to promote wedding destinations among Indians on account of King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s deathThe turnaround was attributed to lower fuel prices and efficient management of costs by the company that also reflected in higher operating profit for the year, though revenues fell 4.3 percent to THB 8,190 million. The number of passengers flown by the carrier rose 4.8 percent to 22.26 million during the year.”…the financial performance in 2016 of THAI and its subsidiaries showed an operating profit of THB 4,071 million compared to last year’s loss of THB 1,304 million or 412.2 percent, a vast improvement from last year,” Thai Airways said in a statement on Wednesday.A 21.6 percent fall in jet fuel prices and 7.7 percent decline in finance costs enabled to cut total expenses by 7 percent to THB 17,907 million. The last quarter (October to December) saw yields drop 9 percent mainly due to the mourning period after King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s death on October 17, 2016. The overall yield for 2016 fell 4.4 percent, according to an analysis note by Nomura. “Had the yield drop been softer, we think 4Q performance could have been far ahead of forecasts,” analysts at the Japanese brokerage said.Thai Airways’s financials during the year were also affected due to exceptional items. “Key exceptional items in FY16 were: THB 3.628 billion impairment loss due on 17 decommissioned aircraft along with provisions for impairment on engines of these aircraft and expense from the Transformation plan of THB 1,228 million (mutual separation plan and special incentive provision to employees),” Nomura analysts wrote in their note.Outlook bright for current yearThai Airways is poised for higher growth in revenues and margins this year on account of continued benefits from efficiency cost management and a spurt in tourist arrivals, especially from China.The Thai Airways stock price closed 2.59 percent lower at THB 18.80 on the Stock Exchange of Thailand. It has a fleet of 95 aircraft, unchanged from last year. Usanee Sangsingkeo is the acting president of Thai Airways. Nomura
An investigator takes pictures with his phone near a pickup truck following an incident in New York. Photo: AFPA pickup driver killed eight people in New York on Tuesday, mowing down cyclists and pedestrians, before striking a school bus in what officials branded a “cowardly act of terror.”Eleven others were seriously injured in the broad daylight assault and first deadly terror-related attack in America’s financial and entertainment capital since the 11 September 2001 Al-Qaeda hijackings brought down the Twin Towers.President Donald Trump, who has curbed the number of migrants entering the United States, swiftly declared that the US “must not” allow Islamic State jihadists to “return, or enter, our country after defeating them” overseas.The truck driver struck just blocks from the 9/11 Memorial, on the West Side of Lower Manhattan, and close to schools and a park at 3:05pm (1905 GMT) as children and their parents geared up to celebrate Halloween.Trump decried him as “very sick” and a “deranged person.” Television networks identified the 29-year-old suspect as an Uzbek citizen living in Florida. He was shot by an officer in the abdomen and taken into custody.Police said he drove a rented Home Depot pickup down a bike and pedestrian lane, plowing into people on foot and bicycles before colliding with a school bus, injuring two adults and two children.The suspect stepped out of the vehicle, brandishing two apparent handguns, before being shot in the abdomen by a police officer, police said.A paintball gun and pellet gun were recovered at the scene, police said.“This was an act of terror and a particularly cowardly act of terror aimed at innocent civilians, aimed at people going about their lives who had no idea what was about to hit them,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio.Police said eight people were killed, six of them men who died on the spot, and two others pronounced dead in hospital. Eleven other people were taken to hospital with serious, but not life-threatening injuries, officials said.Belgium said one of its nationals was among the victims.‘Horrible tragedy’It was the city’s first terror incident since a pipe bomb exploded in September 2016 in Chelsea, lightly wounding 31 people. An American of Afghan descent, Ahmad Khan Rahimi, was convicted of terrorism on 16 October in relation with the attack.Heavily armed police reinforcements were stepped up across the city of 8.5 million in the wake of that attack. Home to Wall Street, Broadway and one of the biggest tourist draws in the United States, it frequently goes on high alert.A planned Halloween parade will go ahead as planned, proving that the city would not bow to threats, officials said.Prime Minister Theresa May said she was appalled by the attack and that Britain stood with New York. “Together we will defeat the evil of terrorism,” she said.French President Emmanuel Macron also expressed solidarity. “Our fight for freedom unites us more than ever,” he tweeted.While details were preliminary and the investigation still underway, the mayor said the suspect appeared to have been a lone wolf and not part of a wider plot.US media said the suspect shouted “Allahu akbar” and police chief James O’Neill confirmed that he made a statement when he exited the vehicle.“If you just look at the MO of the attack, that’s consistent with what’s been going on. So that along with the statement has enabled us to label this a terrorist event,” he said.Television networks named him as Sayfullo Saipov, of Tampa, Florida. According to registry site WhitePages, a 29-year-old Sayfullo Saipov has been living in Tampa since June 2011, and had other addresses registered in Ohio.He was listed as having had several traffic-related minor violations.In New York, police officers and ambulances swamped the area, in front of a park and next to a school as sirens wailed continuously and helicopters roared through the sky.Worried parents gathered outside a public elementary school that had closed, waiting to see if they could collect children who stayed after the end of the classes for extracurricular lessons and activities.‘Feel the pain’John Williams, 22, on his way to a park at the time, said he did not witness the shooting, but arrived 30 seconds afterward.“There was a smell of gunshots,” he told AFP. “There was a man lying on the ground. It looked as if he’d been shot.”State Governor Andrew Cuomo said the city was a “target” as an “international symbol of freedom and democracy.”“We’ve lived with this before, we’ve felt the pain before. We feel the pain today. But we go forward together,” he added.A witness who gave his name only as Frank told local television network NY1 that he saw a man running around an intersection, heard five to six gunshots and saw “about 100 cops” flood into the street.“When the cops shot him, everybody started running away and it got a little bit crazy right there. So when I tried to look again, the guy was already down,” the witness said.Tuesday’s attack came five months after a US Navy veteran plowed a car into pedestrians in Times Square, killing an 18-year-old woman from Michigan and injuring 22 other people on 18 May in what de Blasio said was not an act of terror.Previously, the most serious security breach in New York since Faisal Shahzad, a Pakistani immigrant, plant a car bomb in Times Square on 1 May 2010.His explosive device failed to detonate and he was arrested shortly after boarding a flight to the Middle East. He pleaded guilty and said he was aiming to avenge deaths from US missiles fired from drones operating over Pakistan.He was sentenced to life behind bars.
11 Forgotten Vertigo Comics That Would Make Awesome TV ShowsThe Greatest Romances in Comic Book History For all its shortcomings when it comes to sustaining a story for a whole season, Preacher sure knows its way around a finale. The show was made for episodes like this. The season is over, and all it has to do is leave us with the strongest impression it can. Make sure that we’ll be aching to do this all over again come next summer. That’s what the show is really good at. Because in the final episode of the season, there’s no holding back anymore. Preacher can throw everything it has at us. It can give us its purest, most bonkers action. And that’s really what we’re here for.For all the build-up of Jesse going to kill gran’ma in the last episode, the finale spends the least amount of time on that fight. It makes sense. A younger man who can dislocate your jaw with one punch vs an old lady in a wheelchair? Who grows frailer when she isn’t ingesting souls? Not much of a fight. So, like any good video game, Jesse has to defeat a couple of mid-bosses before the final battle. This is where, as good as these scenes are, the earlier parts of the season don’t hold up their end of the bargain. Jody and TC stopped being scary after Episode Two. The show had trouble driving home how horrible Angelville was. We saw it in flashback, and there were brief moments here and there in the present. Specifically, that underwater coffin scene. But much of the season felt like the characters were waiting around for the plot to catch up with them. After a while, TC and Jody were just kind of there.Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, Jeremy Childs as Jody, Colin Cunningham as T.C. (Photo Credit: Alfonso Bresciani/AMC/Sony Pictures Television)Even though the show never really established them as great villains, the fight scene was still fantastic. Preacher sure knows how to choreograph a brutal fight, and this episode was full of them. After forcing TC to shoot himself in the foot, Jesse elects not to use Genesis on Jody. He wants his revenge to be more personal. He fights him hand-to-hand in the tombs. The show tries to get across just what a big growth moment this is for Jesse by using a flashback. We see the day Jody killed Jesse’s father. Maybe that, and more like that, would have been better earlier in the season. Now, it’s a little too late to carry real emotional weight. The fight is so good though, that it’s easy to overlook. And we have seen Jody overpower Jesse all season, so the scene works on the level of seeing Jesse defeat his life-long bully.The best part of the fights on Preacher: They’re not clean. They’re ugly and painful. They come off like they’re improvised, like the characters are just barely scraping by. This one was no exception. Jesse sticks a two-by-four with nails in it to the side of Jody’s face. Jody casually rips it out, which might somehow be the most painful image of the episode. He gets a few good hits in on Jesse, but Jesse overpowers him in the end, smashing his face into a wall over and over. With Jody incapacitated, Jesse orders TC to fetch some gasoline. He’s going to burn this place to the ground. Ever the Christian, he tries to show mercy to TC and let him live. But TC knows what kind of place this is and what he’s done. He wants to burn with it. It’s a surprisingly touching turn for the character right at the end.Colin Cunningham as T.C. (Photo Credit: Alfonso Bresciani/AMC/Sony Pictures Television)The fight scene with Madame L’Angelle, if you can call it that, was much quicker. They’re not going to have Jesse beat up an old lady in a wheelchair, no matter how evil she is. Her worries about Jesse getting Genesis back pay off right away, though. He orders her to make his debt paid, and release her hold on Tulip. With those out of the way, he’s about to kill her when she reveals her deal with Satan. If Jesse kills her, he goes to Hell along with Genesis. He comes up with a workaround, but it’s not satisfying to him or to us. So he goes back in and hooks her up to the soul machine and takes what’s left of her life out of her. There’s the brutal dusting we were looking for. It’s not just a more satisfying death scene, though. It sets up a conflict for the next season. Now, Jesse’s going to Hell when he dies. He’s going to have to get that sorted somehow. Which will probably involve getting back on God’s trail.Speaking of, Tulip has another run-in with the Creator Himself, but not before her own scrappy fight scene. Ruth Negga really is the best at these, so I’m glad we got one last one to close out the season. Hitler’s strip mall Nazis storm the bus, and Tulip isn’t about to let them free Hitler. She fights one off with a windshield wiper because that’s just what Tulip does. Still, it’s not that effective against a Nazi’s baton, so she grabs a knife and cuts the Nazi’s throat. Right afterward, she grabs his gun and kills two more with one bullet. Nothing really to say here except that I just love watching Nazis get murdered.Ruth Negga as Tulip O’Hare, Ian Colletti as Eugene (Photo Credit: Alfonso Bresciani/AMC/Sony Pictures Television)Every one of these stories leaves us in a really exciting place for next season to pick up. Tulip tries to make a break for it, but the Angel of Death catches up to her. They’re both about to be on the receiving end of a tank round, but it stops in mid-air. God shows up to intervene. He frees Tulip, but not Eugene, saying he has to walk a different path. Tulip’s right, God really is a dick on this show. He tells her to stop Jesse from searching for Him, but we all know that’s not going to happen.More interesting though, is what’s going on with the Saint of Killers and the Angel of Death. She taunts him with the image of his daughter’s eyes being plucked out by crows and he makes her pay for it. He gouges out her eyes and takes her, Hitler and Eugene back to Hell himself. His bargain complete, he gets his guns and sword back and immediately takes revenge on Satan for the death of his daughter. On any other show, a character literally killing Satan, with blood bats flying out of the Prince of Darkness’ head wound, would be the big moment of the finale. On Preacher, it’s a means to a next step. It has a bad habit of losing its own plot sometimes, but God, I love this show. The Saint lives up to his name, and takes Eugene out of Hell with him, recognizing he doesn’t belong there. This leaves a power vacuum in Hell, which is immediately filled by Hitler. I can’t wait to see that play out next season. Meanwhile, Eugene decides to join the Saint of Killers to get revenge on Jesse for sending him to Hell and leaving him there. Yeah, that was a real dick thing to do, Jesse.Pip Torrens as Herr Starr, Malcolm Barrett as Hoover (Photo Credit: Alfonso Bresciani/AMC/Sony Pictures Television)We’re getting to the point where the show is bringing in some real exciting elements from the comics. The stuff we’ve wanted to see since Season One. Does that mean the show will suddenly turn into a perfect adaptation of the comics? No. The pace is still going to be much slower because Preacher the TV show wants you to really take in the f’ed up world it presents. We’ve been excited before about certain elements from the comics making their way into the show, and aside from Starr and The Grail, most have fallen short in some way. It could be different this time, though. We’re getting to the stuff the show can absolutely pull off. Even if we do get another season of the characters just waiting for a story to happen to them, the story that’s coming is a damned (ha) good one. Arseface and the Saint of Killers are determined to kill Jesse and if they do, Jesse and Genesis go to Hell. That’s a pretty tense situation to take us into Season Four. I’m genuinely excited to see what the show does with that.Then there’s Cassidy, who escapes one prison for another. He pretends to come around to Eccarius’ way of thinking, and they celebrate with another vampire-creation ceremony. These scenes do a good job at holding onto tension. You know he told the mother to call around to the vampires sent on missions. You’re waiting to see how the plan manifests itself, and the show takes its sweet time to give you an answer. Finally, just when Eccarius is about to turn her, he notices two bite marks on her neck. She’s already been turned. When nobody answered her calls, she learned Cassidy was telling the truth. He made her a vampire, and he turned all the rest. They crucify Eccarius to prevent his escape before they all eat his body whole. Unlike most of the horror and violence on this show, there’s no comedy here. It’s played straight. It’s unsettling just how satisfying and triumphant it is.Joseph Gilgun as Cassidy (Photo Credit: Alfonso Bresciani/AMC/Sony Pictures Television)For a brief moment, Cassidy gets a bit of happiness. He’s surrounded by other people like him, freed from Eccarius’ rituals and murder. Then Hoover shows up. It turns out he’s still working for The Grail. Starr has the house lifted into the sky, allowing the sun to kill all the vampires except for Hoover and Cassidy. Starr got his vampire. Cass ends the season being held prisoner in Masada. Along with an angel. Who could that be? We’ll have to wait until next summer to find out. Also Hoover dies, but the scene is played with such comedy that I don’t think it’s permanent. With The Grail’s cloning resources, I’m sure we haven’t seen the last of him.What’s more important is Starr’s new goal. He no longer wants Jesse to be his messiah. He wants to torture and kill him. And he has a massive army at his disposal to take him in. I never expected “It’s time to play some fucking checkers” to be such a good season-ending line.Season Three of Preacher was plagued by the same problems that have always hindered this show. It mattered less this time, though. I feel like this was the season where Preacher really came into its own. It still has its storytelling flaws, but it’s learned to mitigate them. It knows what the audience is here to see, and it’s not shy about giving it to us. And though we know it must eventually slow down, I don’t see that happening in the immediate future. Once Season Four begins next summer, we’ll have two factions looking to kill Jesse, and Jesse heading straight for one of them to rescue Cassidy. All with the prospect of an eternity in Hell dangling over his head. That’s one seriously exciting place for the show to be. I just hope it’s worth waiting until next summer for it.

Prior research has shown that some species of animals use urine as a means to communicate with one another. In this new effort, the researchers sought to learn if fish might also do so, because it seemed logical—they are not able to speak and could easily transmit chemicals through water via urine.To find out, they inserted a partition in the middle of a fish tank that prevented fish on either side from interacting physically with one another. In some scenarios, the barrier had tiny holes to allow water to pass between the sides, while in others it did not. Also, some barriers were opaque and others were transparent. In addition, the researchers injected the fish with a blue dye that allowed them to see and measure urine being expelled by the fish once in the tank.The researchers measured how much urine was expelled under a variety of situations—in which only one fish was in the tank; in which there were two but they could not see each other; in which there were two and they could see each other but were or were not able to communicate via urine through the barrier—the team also used a variety of fish sizes and noted fish behavior throughout each test.The researchers looked at their results and noted that when two fish saw one another in the tank, they raised their fins and approached each other in an aggressive manner, and both emitted more urine than when they were not able to see another fish. Also, they found that only when the urine was allowed to move through the barrier was there a noticeable change in behavior of the fish—in such cases, the smaller fish generally reduced its aggressiveness, yielding to the larger one. Interestingly, the researchers also noted that when the urine was not able to pass through the barrier and the fish were able to see one another, both emitted more urine than in any other scenario, apparently aware that their message was not getting through. (Phys.org)—A trio of researchers with the University of Bern in Switzerland has found that at least one species of fish communicates with others of its kind using chemicals in its urine. In their paper published in the journal Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology, the team outlines experiments they conducted with a cichlid fish and what they discovered. Neolamprologus pulcher. Credit: Guérin Nicolas/Wikipedia Citation: Fish found to communicate with one another using urine (2017, February 2) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2017-02-fish-urine.html Journal information: Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology More information: Dario-Marcos Bayani et al. To pee or not to pee: urine signals mediate aggressive interactions in the cooperatively breeding cichlid Neolamprologus pulcher, Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology (2017). DOI: 10.1007/s00265-016-2260-6AbstractThe communication of aggressive propensity is an important component of agonistic interactions. For this purpose, animals use different sensory modalities involving visual, acoustical and chemical cues. While visual and acoustic communication used in aggressive encounters has been studied extensively in a wide range of taxa, the role of chemical communication received less attention. Here, we studied the role of chemical cues used during agonistic interactions of territory owners in the cooperative cichlid Neolamprologus pulcher. During staged encounters, we allowed either visual and chemical contact between two contestants or visual contact only. As chemical information in this species is most likely transferred via urine, we measured urination patterns using dye injections. Furthermore, we recorded aggressive and submissive behaviours of both contestants in response to the experimental treatment. Fish that had only visual contact with each other significantly increased their urination frequency and showed more aggressive displays compared to fish with both visual and chemical contact. Furthermore, appropriate agonistic responses appear to be dependent on available chemical information. This indicates that N. pulcher actively emits chemical signals to communicate their aggressive propensity via urine. Chemical communication thus plays a crucial role in multimodal communication of aggression in these fish, which highlights the need of studying the role of chemical communication during agonistic encounters in general, even if other signals are more obvious to the human observer.

Perfectionism – the craving to be perfect in body, mind and career – has significantly increased among today’s college students compared with previous generations, and may be taking a toll on their mental health, a study suggests. Researchers suggest that perfectionism entails “an irrational desire to achieve along with being overly critical of oneself and others.”They analysed data from 41,641 American, Canadian and British college students from 164 samples who completed the Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale, a test for generational changes in perfectionism, from the late 1980s to 2016. They measured three types of perfectionism: self-oriented – an irrational desire to be perfect; socially prescribed – perceiving excessive expectations from others; and other-oriented – placing unrealistic standards on others. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe study, published in the journal Psychological Bulletin, found that more recent generations of college students reported significantly higher scores for each form of perfectionism than earlier generations.The rise in perfectionism among millennials is being driven by a number of factors, according to Curran. For example, raw data suggest that social media use pressures young adults to perfect themselves in comparison to others, which makes them dissatisfied with their bodies and increases social isolation.The drive to earn money, pressure to get a good education and setting lofty career goals are other areas in which today’s young people exhibit perfectionism.In another example, Curran cited college students’ drive to perfect their grades and compare them to their peers. These examples represent a rise in meritocracy among millennials, in which universities encourage competition among students to move up the ladder.
