Randy Quaid rants against studios, media in bizarre video

Written by admin on 24/07/2019 Categories: 广州桑拿网

TORONTO — In a bizarre video that surfaced online Tuesday, actor Randy Quaid simulates intercourse with his wife Evi while she is wearing a photo of News Corporation chair Rupert Murdoch as a mask.

The 64-year-old, sporting a bushy white beard, starts the video with a rant about helping News Corp. and Warner Bros. earn over $1 billion from his films Independence Day and Christmas Vacation.

“What did I get in return?,” Quaid asks, before claiming “a Warner Bros. exec stole my house” and the studio “had my wife and I falsely arrested six times by TMZ.”

Quaid also alleges a smear campaign by a New York newspaper.

“Evi and I have been put through a living hell of biblical proportion,” he says, before Evi puts the masks on and the couple simulates sex.

“So Rupert, you want to f*** me, I’m going to f*** you,” says Quaid. “Maybe you’ll thank me for this.”

During the act, Quaid declares: ‘Together, we’ll wipe out police media corruption.”

Quaid does not explain why he is angry at the two companies.

It is not clear when or where the video was made.

One version of the video was taken down by YouTube because it violated its “policy prohibiting content designed to harass, bully or threaten.”

The actor and his wife have been in Canada since 2010, when they sought refugee status in Vancouver following arrests in California for burglary. They claimed they were not safe in the U.S. because “Hollywood star whackers” were out to get them.

In 2011, the Quaids screened a documentary, Star Whackers, in which they claimed celebrities are targeted for murder by industry executives.

A Vancouver Sun reviewer dismissed the film as “drugged-out dreck.”

Randy’s application for permanent resident status in Canada was denied in 2013 but the couple has been allowed to remain in Canada because Evi has nationality through her father.

The pair, married since 1989, face arrest if they return to the U.S.

In addition to Independence Day and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, Quaid’s credits include Midnight Express, Kingpin and the made-in-Alberta film Brokeback Mountain. He is the older brother of actor Dennis Quaid.

Detox diets, beauty and health tips: are celebrities always wrong?

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿网

WATCH ABOVE: Millions of people turn to celebrities for health tips. However, a local professor has a new book about science versus celebrity culture. Su-Ling Goh reports.

EDMONTON — Gwyneth Paltrow was once named the world’s most beautiful woman and has millions of adoring fans, but does that really qualify her and her other celebrities to dish out health advice?

The 42-year-old has previously used her health and lifestyle blog, Goop, to promote a macrobiotic diet. Most recently, she’s used the site to advertise what she calls a “Mugworth V-Steam” — essentially, a vaginal steaming. The post sparked ridicule on social media from many, including comedian Ricky Gervais.

    “Gwyneth is a great example of the impact of celebrity culture in our lives. Not only does she talk about health products and lifestyle interventions, but it’s part of her brand,” said University of Alberta law professor Tim Caufield.

    In his latest book, Is Gwyneth Paltrow Wrong About Everything, Caufield tried to put some of the actress’ tips to the test, starting with her 21-day detox diet plan. So what did he think of it?

    “I hated it. It was 21 days of hell.”

    “There’s no evidence that you need to detoxify your body. You have organs that do that for you, your kidney, your liver and even your skin. When you pee, you’re detoxing.”

    READ MORE: What U of A doctors found when they studied Dr. Oz’s health claims

    It’s not just the $5 billion detoxing industry that Caufield has a problem with, nor is it just Paltrow. There are plenty of other celebrities who also delve into the world of health and wellness, like Jenny McCarthy, who was once outspoken about linking vaccines to autism.

    READ MORE: Jenny McCarthy backtracking on anti-vaccination, but is it too late?

    Caufield believes that whether we realize it or not, what celebrities say affects our choices about our appearance, careers and our health.

    “Celebrities have become the standard by which we measure ourselves. Even if we don’t think we’re doing that, it’s a phenomenon called Social Comparison.”

    The reason so many people seem to listen to the advice celebrities offer, according to Caufield, likely has to do with our pursuit of perfection and our desire to achieve it the easy way.

    But the quick fixes can be dangerous and unhealthy. Science shows we should listen more to our doctors — and less to celebrities like Paltrow.

    The not-so-elusive secret may boil down to just adopting a healthy lifestyle that you can maintain long-term. And leaving celebrity culture where Caufield feels it should be: “as a form of entertainment.”

Donations pour in for Detroit man who walks 21 miles to and from work

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿网

WATCH ABOVE: A Detroit, Michigan man has an extraordinarily difficult commute to work travelling 21 miles every day, much of it on foot. Lauren Podell reports.

DETROIT – Hundreds of people have contributed tens of thousands of dollars to help a Detroit man who says he typically walks 21 miles to get to and from work.

广州桑拿

The Detroit Free Press reports that James Robertson rides buses part of the way to and from his factory job in suburban Rochester Hills, but because they don’t cover the whole route, he ends up walking about 8 miles before his shift starts at 2 p.m. and 13 more when it’s over at 10. Lately, he’s been getting occasional rides from a banker who passed him walking every day and finally asked what he was doing.

After the newspaper wrote about the 56-year-old’s situation over the weekend, multiple people started crowdfunding efforts to help him buy a car and pay for insurance. Some have offered to drive him for free and others have offered to buy or give him cars.

Robertson began making the daily trek to the factory where he moulds parts after his car stopped working ten years ago and bus service was cut back. He’s had perfect attendance for more than 12 years.

“I set our attendance standard by this man,” said Todd Wilson, plant manager at Schain Mold & Engineering. “I say, if this man can get here, walking all those miles through snow and rain, well I’ll tell you, I have people in Pontiac 10 minutes away and they say they can’t get here – bull!”

Evan Leedy, a 19-year-old student at Wayne State University, read the story and started a GoFundMe site with the goal of raising $5,000. As of Monday evening, he had raised more than $90,000.

Robertson said he was flattered by the attention and amazed strangers would step in to help.

Asked about a federal program newly available through Detroit’s bus system that might pick him up at home and drop him off at his job, Robertson said, “I’d rather they spent that money on a 24-hour bus system, not on some little bus for me. This city needs buses going 24/7. You can tell the City Council and mayor I said that.”

Manitoba Métis Federation president criticizes ’60s Scoop apology

Written by admin on 25/09/2019 Categories: 广州桑拿网

WINNIPEG —; Manitoba’s Metis Federation says its people are being left out of an apology to come this week for aboriginal children who were taken from their homes and placed with non-aboriginal families.

President David Chartrand said no one from the Manitoba government consulted with the Metis or formally invited him to the event set for Thursday at the legislature. The Metis were left out of the residential school settlement and it feels like the same thing is happening again, he said.

广州桑拿

Manitoba appears to be blaming Ottawa for what is known as the ’60s Scoop when it was provincial social workers who seized aboriginal children and placed them with families as far away as the southern United States, Chartrand said in an interview.

“It’s the province that took our children. It’s the province that sold our children to the United States and other places. It’s the province that did harm to my families.”

“Clearly we’re not going to let the province get away from this.”

Premier Greg Selinger is set to deliver an apology to aboriginal adoptees in what is thought to be the first by a Canadian province. The substance of the apology has not been released, but Selinger said it will acknowledge damage done to those taken from their homes and their culture.

Paul McKie, spokesman for Selinger, said numerous aboriginal organizations have been invited to witness the apology. The Manitoba Metis Federation was invited Friday by phone, by email and formally by letter, he said.

The province, along with affected adoptees, has been working on the apology for months, he said.

“Many people, groups and organizations have been invited,” McKie said. “There were informal consultations with many people.”

From the 1960s to the 1980s, thousands of aboriginal children were taken from their homes by child-welfare services and placed with non-aboriginal families. Adoptees have been fighting for recognition of their experience and a formal apology similar to that given to survivors of residential schools. Many have filed class-action lawsuits in Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta.

An apology without a plan and proper consultation with those affected is empty, said Chartrand, who has worked with ’60s Scoop adoptees and their families for years.

“You can’t just say ‘I’m sorry’ and walk away. You did permanent damage here. You tore entire communities apart. Maybe they’re thinking if they say ‘I’m sorry’ that ends my responsibility.”

Grand Chief David Harper, with Manitoba Keewatinowi Okimakanak which represents northern First Nations, still remembers children being taken away from his community, never to be seen again. He said he will be there to witness the apology but will also be looking for more.

Many adoptees are still trying to find their roots, he said. They need counselling and help with repatriation, he said.

“I’m very glad that the premier is doing the honourable thing,” Harper said. “But words are one thing. Action is another. What kind of action is there for these people?”

FIFA Women’s World Cup: Bob Lenarduzzi, Squire Barnes, local female player weigh in

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿网

With the FIFA Women’s World Cup underway, we hear from people who know, live and breathe soccer.

Vancouver Whitecaps FC President Bob Lenarduzzi, Global BC Sports Director Squire Barnes and a local, up-and-coming female soccer player weigh in on why people should tune in, who will hoist the Cup and Team Canada’s chances.

Vancouver Whitecaps FC President Bob Lenarduzzi

What two teams will make the final and who will take the Cup?

Assuming both Canada and USA win their groups, I think we will see a North American final with Christine Sinclair scoring the game-winning goal against the US.

What chances does Canada have?

广州桑拿

We have a great chance. We have three additional years of experience since the London Olympic Games, when we came so close to making the final. We have arguably one of the best goalkeepers in the world in Erin McLeod. Sophie Schmidt has evolved into not just a better player but also a great leader. And then we have Christine Sinclair, who has proven in the past that she’s able to deliver when a lot is on the line.

What does it mean to have world’s best female soccer players come to Vancouver?

It’s great for the sport of soccer in our country. We already have close to an equal male and female representation in the number of registered players in Canada and this will only help the growth of the game. In addition, we’re seeing incredible support from the number of fans from around the world coming to the games, so it’s going to help grow the game globally as well.

Why should people tune in?

You’re seeing the best female players in the world giving their all, while, for the most part, playing for the love of the sport.

Global BC Sports Director Squire Barnes

What two teams will make the final and who will take the Cup?

I am going to say it will be USA and Japan in the final. Canada has a chance to make it, but Japan are the defending champs, and I give them the edge on that.

What chances does Canada have?

Canada does have a good chance to make the final four. Their scoring is still a bit of a question mark. They will need someone other than just Christine Sinclair doing the scoring if they are to make the final.

What does it mean to have world’s best female soccer players come to Vancouver?

The fact Vancouver is the site of the final is another big sporting moment for the city. It’s obviously not quite the 2010 Olympics, but this is a world-class event.

Why should people tune in?

Anytime we get to see Canada in a top-flight tournament, it’s worth watching. Especially when we have a chance to do something big. The women’s game is improving with every World Cup and international competitions are always good entertainment.

Emma Regan, 15-year-old member of the Whitecaps FC Girls Elite REX Program and the 2014 CONCACAF Girls’ U-15 Championship team that won gold

What two teams will make the final and who will take the Cup? 

It’s hard not to predict that the powerhouse, United States, will be one of the last two teams.  My heart says a Canada-US final, but my head says Norway or Brazil are more likely opponents for the US in the finals.  Japan is such a technically proficient team that we could have a re-match of the 2011 Women’s World Cup final. If that’s the case, I think the US will take the Cup and their revenge on Japan.

What chances does Canada have?

Canada should come first in their pool. It looks like they have the possibility of favorable Round of 16, and quarterfinal match-ups against teams like Australia and Norway (games they could win), so Canada has a good chance of advancing to the semis. The challenge for 8th ranked Canada will be to play better than tier-one teams, such as Japan and the US, to advance beyond the semis. John Herdman has them well prepared, the players have dedicated the last several years to be their best and Canada has assembled the best team ever. I believe they can do it!

What does it mean to have world’s best female soccer players come to Vancouver?

The excitement for female soccer in Canada is at an all-time high. Having the Women’s World Cup in our backyard means that young Canadian players can watch and learn from the best female players in the world. Young girls have loved the veteran players such as [Christine] Sinclair and [Sophie] Schmidt since before the Olympics, but it’s the skilled, young players like [Ashley] Lawrence, [Jessie] Fleming and [Kadeisha] Buchanan who show us that it’s truly possible to play on the women’s national team someday. They inspire us to keep training hard, every single day, so that one day we might earn a spot on the Senior [team], and have our shot to compete with the best in the world.

Why should people tune in?

It is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see the best female players in the world. These players compete for the love of the beautiful game. We also need to be the 12th man for Canada by proudly wearing red and white and by loudly supporting the Canadian [team], who give everything they have for their fans.

Items recovered from remote N.Y. cabin might be linked to escaped killer: police

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿网

WATCH: The manhunt follows the discovery of evidence at a hunting cabin deep in the Adirondack woods. The items were found in the last two days, authorities ran tests and got a DNA match to at least one of the escapees. Anna Werner reports.

BELLMONT, N.Y. – Items recovered from a remote hunting cabin might be linked to a pair of convicted killers who escaped from a nearby prison more than two weeks ago, authorities said Monday as searchers swarmed rugged woods in the hamlet in far northern New York.

State Police Maj. Charles Guess said at a news conference that authorities had “specific items” from the Adirondack cabin some 20 miles west of the prison and sent them to labs for DNA and other testing. He would not elaborate on the items but characterized the latest search effort – one of many over the past 17 days – as a confirmed lead.

“There are a number of factors that make this a complex search: the weather, the terrain, the environment and frankly the vast scope of the north country of the Adirondacks,” Guess said.

He urged residents and seasonal camp owners to call police if they notice anything out of place or capture footage on trail cameras of any suspicious activity.

Acting Franklin County District Attorney Glenn MacNeill had told WPTZ-TV on Sunday that a hunter had reported seeing a person fleeing from a camp in the area.

Terry Bellinger, owner of nearby Belly’s Mountain View Inn, said the hunter told him he saw a man run into the woods as he approached the camp Saturday on an ATV. When the hunter went into the cabin, he noticed two things out of place: a jug of water and an open jar of peanut butter on a table. Bellinger said the hunter went to his restaurant, where he talked to police for several hours.

“He was visibly shaken. He wanted a glass of water,” Bellinger said.

Inmates David Sweat and Richard Matt escaped June 6 from the Clinton County Correctional Facility. Sweat, 35, was serving a life sentence without parole for killing a sheriff’s deputy. Matt, 48, was doing 25 years to life for the 1997 kidnapping, torture and hacksaw dismemberment of his former boss.

Prison worker Joyce Mitchell remained in custody on charges she helped the two men escape by providing them hacksaw blades, chisels and other tools. She has pleaded not guilty.

Authorities say she had talked to the inmates about killing her husband, Lyle, who also works at the prison. Andrew Wylie, Clinton County district attorney, said Joyce Mitchell told authorities that she and Matt discussed having Matt and Sweat go to her house after they escaped to kill Lyle Mitchell.

Monday’s search area is about 20 miles east of Mitchell’s home in Dickinson Center.

Busloads of officers, search dogs and helicopters began arriving in the Adirondack hamlet of Bellmont late Sunday as a parallel search more than 350 miles away from the prison wrapped up with no sign of the inmates.

The search had been focused over the weekend on two towns in Allegany County along the Pennsylvania state border. An unconfirmed but credible report came in that two men resembling the prisoners had been spotted near a railroad line that runs along a county road.

New York State Police said Monday morning that the search in the towns of Amity and Friendship in western New York had concluded.

Since Sweat and Matt escaped from the prison in Dannemora, more than 800 law enforcement officers have gone door-to-door checking houses, wooded areas, campgrounds and summer homes.

Vermont State Police also have joined the Adirondack-area search.

Officials said a corrections officer has been placed on administrative leave as part of the investigation into the men’s escape.

Attorney Andrew Brockway told Plattsburgh television station WPTZ that the officer, Gene Palmer, was completely forthcoming during 14 hours of questioning Saturday.

“I can 100 per cent confirm that he did not know they were planning on breaking out of the prison,” Brockway said.

Palmer has not been charged.

Mother opens up about Kristen Stewart’s same-sex relationship: report

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿网

TORONTO —; Actress Kristen Stewart’s mother said she approves of her famous daughter’s relationship with Alicia Cargile.

This is according to the UK’s Mirror, which reported Saturday that Jules Stewart has given the couple her blessing.

    “What’s not to be accepting about her now having a girlfriend? She’s happy,” Jules is quoted telling Mirror. “She’s my daughter, I’m just her mom so she knows I would accept her choices.”

    According to the report, the 25-year-old Twilight star’s mom said: “I accept my daughter loves women and men. It’s OK to be who you are in my world. We all choose our friends so we should be free to choose our lovers.”

    Jules Stewart, an artist and filmmaker, told Us Weekly she spoke to freelance journalist Sharon Feinstein about gay rights and called Cargile “a lovely girl” when asked if she knew her —; but she denied speaking about her daughter or her personal life.

    Feinstein fired back on 广州蒲友, promising to post a recording of her interview with Jules. “When someone has spoken to a journalist in good faith it isn’t fair to blatantly deny it and call the journalists (sic) integrity into question,” she tweeted.

    In a statement on her blog, Feinstein said she is “disappointed and saddened” by Jules’ statements. “This was a very positive story and one told by a loving parent,” she wrote. “Any statements to the contrary are simply not supported and not true.”

    Kristen Stewart’s relationship with her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson ended in 2012 after it was revealed she had a fling with her married Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.

    Pattinson is now rumoured to be engaged to British singer FKA twigs.

    In April, Kristen appeared on Conan and described Cargile, her personal assistant, as her “buddy” and “confidante.”

    The pair have been the subject of speculation since being snapped out together last summer.

Firefighters’ job made difficult by suspected hoarding at St. James blaze

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿网

WINNIPEG – When a fire broke out on the second floor of a St. James home early Monday morning, attacking the flames from the roof was the only option.

“We had stairs that were missing going up and we encountered a lot of difficulties,” said Platoon Chief Frank Leswick.

Piles and piles of newspapers and garbage filled the entrance and stairway, making fighting the flames impossible.

“It spread very quickly because of the amount of material that was in the house,” said Leswick.

广州桑拿

The owner, a man in a 60s, lived alone in the home on Kensington street. He escaped unharmed.

Neighbour Lila Nicklin was woken up by a noise and when she looked outside, her neighbours house was on fire.

“I ran over to see if he was out,” said Nicklin, “I found him and he was sitting and crying.”

Nicklin says her neighbour was emotional because he said it was the home he was raised in.

But Nicklin says over the years, she suspects he became a hoarder and many neighbours were concerned about what would happen if there was fire.

“He liked to keep everything even his garbage,” said Nicklin, “it’s terrible to say but that house should have been condemned but I guess no one wanted to say anything.”

Refuse can be seen through the front door of a home in Winnipeg’s St. James neighbourhood following a fire Monday.

Hoarding is a serious mental illness. It often comes to light following tragedies like this but there is something family, friends even neighbours can do.

“They can call 311,” said Marc Proulx, Public Education Coordinator with the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service, “personnel are trained to ask the right questions and see what kind of issue is this, is this a concerning issue to the public and I’m sure it is.”

Once a complaint is made, a by-law officer can go to the home and force the owner to clean up even offer them help for a mental illness before it’s too late.

“He was a good neighbour,” said Nicklin, “he was friendly, he was always helpful.”

The cause of the fire is under investigation. The homeowner will stay with family and neighbours have already offered to help with furniture and clothes.

WATCH: Smash Mouth singer has on-stage meltdown over bread

TORONTO —; The lead singer of Smash Mouth turned into a potty mouth Sunday night during a concert in Colorado.

Steve Harwell flipped out when someone in the crowd at Taste of Fort Collins threw bread on the stage just as the band was getting ready to play its 1999 hit “All Star.”

“You throw one more piece of s*** on f***ing stage, I’m gonna come find your a**, I’m gonna beat your a**, whoever the f*** you are out there,” Harwell said.

    The 48-year-old singer, one of only two original members of Smash Mouth, threatened to walk off stage.

    “You’re ruining the show for thousands of people right now,” said Harwell, who then went into the crowd to confront someone he suspected of being responsible for the yeast projection. A member of the band’s crew jumped into action and held Harwell back.

    After some in the crowd started booing, a Smash Mouth musician started singing “All Star” —; and the crowd joined in.

    Harwell’s expletive-filled tirade at the family-friendly event quickly hit social media with hashtags like “#breadgate2k15” and comments about the singer being gluten intolerant.

    In addition to “All Star,” which was featured in the movie Shrek, Smash Mouth had hits like “Walkin’ on the Sun” and recorded covers of “Why Can’t We Be Friends” and “I’m a Believer.”

    The group’s last album, 2012’s Magic, peaked at No. 22 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart.

Moncton doctors bike across N.B. to raise money for their patients fighting cancer

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿网

WATCH: A handful on Moncton doctors set out Monday to cycle 500 kilometers over five days to help patients fighting cancer. Global’s Shelley Steeves reports.

MONCTON – A handful of Moncton doctors set out to cycle 500 kilometers Monday to help patients fighting cancer.

The N.B. Doctors Cycling Against Cancer Ride is a five-day cycling event in support of the oncology clinic at the Moncton Hospital.

广州桑拿

It took a year, but Moncton oncologist Dr. Mohammed Harb says he finally found a crew of doctors crazy enough to follow his lead. He says he rode in a similar fundraiser while practicing in the United Kingdom.

“I really found an amazing crazy group to do it with me,” he said. “It’s going to be a grueling ride, but knowing that we’ll be improving cancer care for patients in our region makes it all worth it.”

Experienced cyclist Dr. Paul Goobie lead the pack.

“He (Dr. Harb) is crazy but I am crazy too so we decided it would be a great idea to put this together and cycle against cancer and raise some money for the oncology centre and for our patients,” Goobie said.

The money raised will be used to buy medical and telecommunications equipment used in at least 53 clinical trials taking place at the Moncton Hospital’s Oncology Centre.

The alternative cancer treatments benefit patients like Patricia Samuelsen, who is now winning her battle with breast cancer.

“I think I am freer, more relaxed, not so worried about things just take each day and enjoy them,” she said.

“The technology we hope to purchase from this ride will improve access to care and ensure quicker and more accurate results for patients enrolled in the program,” said Harb.

But he says it won’t be an easy trip for the team.

“We are going to head to Sussex, from Sussex to Fredericton to Miramichi and then back,” he said.

They’ll travel about 100 kilometers each day, rain or shine.

“Cancer patients have storm days and cyclists have stormy days too and that’s okay we just keep on going,” said Goobie.

The goal is to raise $25,000. The doctors say they’ll fight for every penny and every peddle to help their patients.

Donations can be made at the oncology centre or through Friends of the Moncton Hospital.

Teen fatally shot in London, Ont. after tracking lost cellphone

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿网

WATCH ABOVE: All Jeremy Cook wanted was to find his lost cell phone. But when the 18-year-old London, Ont. teen tracked it down, it ended with him losing his life. Jennifer Tryon has the details.

Funeral details have been announced for Jeremy Ryan Cook, the 18-year-old Brampton man fatally shot in London, Ont. on Sunday, after a dispute over a lost cellphone.

    The first visitation for Cook will be held in at Ward Funeral Home at 52 Main St. South in Brampton on Saturday from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., while the second and third visitations will be on Sunday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and again from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

    Cook’s funeral service is scheduled for Monday at 10 a.m. at St. Anne’s Roman Catholic Church in Brampton.

    London Police are still searching for three suspects in connection with the shooting and said Cook had left his cellphone in a taxi cab and electronically tracked it to a parking lot at 1181 Highbury Ave. North on Sunday.

    Upon arriving at the address with a relative at about 5:15 a.m., police said they approached a silver 2004 Mazda 6 four-door sedan occupied by three men and a “discussion occurred about the phone.”

    Police said one of the passengers exited the car and walked away from the area while the vehicle started to drive away, which is when Cook then partially climbed onto the car and held onto the driver’s side door.

    The vehicle drove northbound on Highbury Ave. and then turned east, which is when police said shots were fired and reported by witnesses.

    Police responded to the scene and found the victim without vital signs after suffering multiple gunshot wounds behind a plaza located at Highbury Ave. and Huron St.

    Paramedics attempted to revive Cook, but were unsuccessful and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

    “The end result of this whole scenario is definitely tragic. It’s very unfortunate, we never suggest anyone grabbing onto a moving vehicle, as that in-and-of-itself is very dangerous, but if there’s any concern whether it be of criminal nature, such as a stolen item or any concern for your safety we certainly encourage people to contact police,” said Const. Ken Steeves.

    “I don’t think anybody would have been able to predict that the end result in this scenario would have been the case under the circumstances. But if anyone has any information in relation to where their lost items may be, certainly there’s nothing wrong with inquiring, but if there’s any suspicion or any indication that there’s trouble or anything like that we certainly encourage people to contact police.”

    Police said the vehicle then drove west on Huron St. and collided with a fence and a hydro pole near Barker St., before it was found abandoned on nearby Wyndham Cres.

    “With the vehicle, often times you’re able to determine the registered owner but that doesn’t necessarily mean that he or she is involved in the scenario,” said Steeves.

    “I’m not indicating whether he or she is involved in this situation but it doesn’t always solve or provide concrete answers.”

    After the vehicle was abandoned, police said a man was seen running through a nearby park and three separate suspects were arrested and taken into custody after a cab they were in was stopped by police.

    A citizen then reportedly called police after the victim’s cellphone was found in the area of Wyndham Cres. and Barker St.

    Police initially said they were not looking for any other suspects, but on Monday police released the three suspects after it was determined they were not involved with the shooting.

    Police said the suspects and the victim were not known to each other, and the victim was not known to London Police.

    They are currently searching for three men – including the two who were in the vehicle and the one who walked away. They are all described as being between 18 and 21 years of age and police are appealing to the public for information on the suspects.

    The first suspect is described as black, wearing a white shirt with a black design, the second is described as black with very short hair, wearing a black jacket or shirt and a fitted hat, while the third is described as black with a slim build, wearing a blue shirt and black hat.

    Anyone with information related to the incident is asked to contact London Police.

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿网

WATCH ABOVE: Massive condo and apartment fires have been caused by smoking material. But, changes are coming and Vinesh Pratap goes through the details.

    “Fires caused by the improper disposal of smoking material are completely preventable, and yet are the cause of some of our city’s most dangerous and devastating fires,” said Fire Chief Ken Block.

    “As we have seen, the actions of an individual can have a profound and permanent impact on residents, emergency services and our city at large.

    In May, a cigarette butt put in a diaper container on a balcony sparked a massive condo fire in Clareview that caused more than $16 million in damage.

    “I am personally asking Edmontonians to take responsibility for their actions related to fire use,” said Block.

    “If you are going to smoke, it must be disposed of in a proper receptacle.

    “Let’s work harder to keep each other safe.”

    Block – along with Jeremy Wagner, acting deputy fire commissioner with Alberta Municipal Affairs – announced they will pursue stricter enforcement of fire code regulations in apartments and condos. Officials will also look at other changes to help prevent similar fires.

    Edmonton Fire Rescue Services will be working with condo boards and owners to have proper smoking receptacles on balconies of residential complexes by 2016, if smoking has not been prohibited altogether.

    EFRS will also explore other improved fire safety features that will limit the spread of fires that start on balconies of complexes built under previous building codes.

    “Last year, seven people in Alberta lost their lives because smoking materials were not safely extinguished,” said Deron Bilous, minister of Municipal Affairs. “Please remember that fire safety is a responsibility we all share. Edmonton Fire Rescue Services have launched an important life-saving awareness campaign and I commend them on their initiative.”

    On Monday, the “Stub itRight, Don’t Ignite” campaign was launched. Officials say it will teach people how to properly dispose of smoking materials and raise awareness of the devastating impact these fires can have on communities.

    Since 2010, smoking materials that weren’t handled properly have caused more than $45 million in damage to multi-dwelling homes.

    Over the past five years, 97 fires have been attributed to the improper disposal of smoking materials.

Winnipeg mosquito fogging suspended due to cool weather

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿网

WINNIPEG – Malathion fogging to control nuisance mosquitoes has been suspended because low temperatures are forecast Monday night.

Mosquitoes aren’t active when temperatures are low, and fogging is most effective when the insects are flying and make direct contact with the malathion, a city news release said. Fogging is suspended when the temperature drops below 13 C; Environment Canada forecasts a low of 9 C Monday night.

The fogging scheduled for Sunday night wasn’t completed because of low temperatures, the news release said.

The southern and western parts of Winnipeg were fogged on the nights of June 11 and June 13. Insect management areas 1-10 (east of the Red River and north of Marion Street and the Symington Yards) and areas 40-51 (east and north of the airport, including most of the West End, the city centre, the North End, West Kildonan and north to the city limits) are the only areas that haven’t been sprayed. Go to the City of Winnipeg insect management branch website to learn which insect management area you live in.

The white area of the map – insect management areas 1-10 and 40-51 – hasn’t been fogged with malathion. Mosquito fogging has been suspended due to low temperatures.

The mosquito adulticiding factor analysis – the tool the city uses to help determine whether to fog – was high on Monday, with an average trap count of 27. Despite the fogging last week, the highest count was in the southwest, with an average of 38 mosquitoes per trap; the southeast had the lowest average, at 15. The average count in the northwest was 22 and the average in the northeast was 32.
