In-The-News is a roundup of stories from The Canadian Press designed to kickstart your day. Here is what’s on the radar of our editors for the morning of Sept. 27.What we are watching in Canada …The march is on.Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau confirmed his attendance in Friday’s massive climate march in Montreal, which will feature 16-year-old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg.Thunberg will be given the key to the city from Montreal Mayor Valerie Plante during her visit, but the Liberals have not said whether Trudeau will meet with her.Elizabeth May is also scheduled to be at the march.The exception is Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer, who’s spending the day in the suburbs of Vancouver for an announcement and campaign stops with candidates in Maple Ridge and Richmond, but not marching anywhere.Trudeau praised the “extraordinary amount of mobilization” by young people across Canada and around the world who have been pressuring for action on climate change, and pitched himself as the best person to lead the charge.“We know protecting our nature, protecting our land for future generations, protecting our waters in partnership with Indigenous Peoples, is about fighting climate change and protecting our future,” he said.—Also this …SURREY, B.C. — We should learn more today about the search for two killers that gripped much of the country this summer.The RCMP say the will release the findings of their investigation into the deaths of University of British Columbia botany lecturer Leonard Dyck as well as American Chynna Deese and her Australian boyfriend Lucas Fowler. All three were killed in northern B.C. The two suspects, 18-year-old Bryer Schmegelsky and 19-year-old Kam McLeod, were found dead of self-inflicted gunshot wounds on Aug. 7 in the wilderness of northern Manitoba.The manhunt for the two began on July 23 when police announced Schmegelsky and McLeod were suspects in the deaths.The young men had initially been considered missing persons when a truck and camper they were driving was found burned a few kilometres from where Dyck’s body was discovered at a highway pullout on July 15.The bodies of Deese and Fowler were found near the Alaska Highway, 470 kilometres from where Dyck’s body was discovered, on July 19.—ICYMI (In case you missed it) …McDonald’s is looking at plant-based burgers.The company says it will sell the PLT, or the plant, lettuce and tomato burger for 12 weeks in 28 restaurants in Southwestern Ontario by the end of the month. McDonald’s says it developed a special recipe using burgers from Beyond Meat.The small-market test is rolling out about six months after rival Burger King began testing the plant-based Impossible Foods burger, a rival to Beyond Meat. It’s now selling the Impossible Whopper nationwide because of strong demand from customers.Shares of Beyond Meat Inc. rose more than 11 per cent to close at $154.34.The burgers aren’t really aimed at vegans or vegetarians, but at meat eaters who perceive plant-based eating as healthier and more environmentally conscious.McDonald’s says the PLT will be grilled on the same grill used for meat and eggs.—What we are watching in the U.S. …“Who’s the person that gave the whistleblower the information? Because that’s close to spy. You know what we used to do in the old days, when we were smart, right? The spies and treason? We used to handle it a little differently than we do now.”President Donald Trump lashed out at the person who gave information to a whistleblower who has accused the president of abusing the nation’s highest office for political gain, saying that individual is “close to a spy” who could have committed treason — an act punishable by death.Trump’s comments led several Democratic House committee chairman to warn the president against “witness intimidation.”In a formal complaint filed with the intelligence community’s inspector general, the whistleblower said “I was not a direct witness to most of the events described” but had received information over the past four months from multiple U.S. government officials alleging that Trump “is using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 U.S. election.”—What we are watching in the rest of the world …Iranian President Hassan Rouhani urged the United States on Thursday to “cease this policy of maximum pressure” on his nation.He says it was driving the possibility of negotiations even further away.“Cease this policy of maximum pressure and pursue a policy of dialogue and logic and reason,” Rouhani said. Moving in that direction, he said, “would be a different set of circumstances and a different atmosphere.”Rouhani stuck to his insistence that U.S. sanctions must be lifted before he would talk with U.S. President Donald Trump, although he did not explicitly rule out such a meeting if they remain in place.He spoke about discussions with the leaders of France, Japan and Pakistan about trying to promote talks, and he made clear that such contacts are continuing.Iran has been accused by the U.S., Britain, France and Germany of carrying out drone and missile strikes against key oil facilities in Saudi Arabia on Sept. 14 that temporarily knocked out nearly 6 per cent of daily global crude production and rattled oil markets.Rouhani again denied any Iranian involvement.“As we say in Persian,” he said, “we’re not the top end of the onion or the bottom of it, so we have nothing to do with it.”—On this day in 1990 …Prime Minister Brian Mulroney made a last-ditch effort to move the controversial goods and services tax legislation through the Liberal-dominated Senate.Drawing on a never-before-used section of the constitution, Mulroney received permission from the Queen to increase the size of the Upper House to 112 members from 104.The bill was passed and the GST kicked in on Jan. 1, 1991.—Weird and wild …PULASKI, Va. — It’s the rodent version of Lassie.Police in Virginia say a woman was led down a trail by a squirrel and the animal tugged at her leg to help its injured baby.Pulaski police say on their Facebook page that officers got a call last week from a woman who told them a squirrel approached her on a trail, blocked her path and led her to the baby squirrel with an injured leg.Tia Powell told police that when she tried to walk away, the squirrel tugged on her pants leg. That’s when she realized a cat was ready to attack the squirrels, so she called police and a friend.The news release says responding officers found the squirrels sitting with the two women, who got them back in their tree.—Your money …TORONTO — Legal experts say dying without a will is a selfish decision that can add financial hardship to families suffering with grief.“When you don’t do anything and there is a problem you’re leaving it to somebody else to solve the problem and that’s no kindness to the people that are grieving a person’s death,” says David Freedman, associate law professor at Queen’s University.More than half of Canadians don’t have wills. Some people don’t like considering their death while others carry misconceptions about how their estate will be distributed.Among the big errors is assuming that all assets will go to the surviving spouse if there are children.Failing to have someone in charge of the estate can also tear families apart, says Tim Hewson, president of Legalwills.ca.Having a will makes it simpler and less expensive to settle the estate and avoid the family arguments that sometimes end up in court, says Quebec notary Benoit Rivet.—Celebrity buzz…MONTREAL — Canadian superstar singer Celine Dion is having issues with her throat.Dion is postponing four Montreal performances of her Courage World Tour.She is suffering from a throat virus and is on doctor’s orders to take a week off to recover.The shows scheduled at Montreal’s Bell Centre through next have been postponed to dates later in November.The concert promoter says Dion is hoping to be well enough to perform her two other Montreal Bell Centre dates, on Oct. 4 and 5.—The games we play …GRAND COULEE, Sask. — People across the country are coming to the aid of a Saskatchewan minor hockey team whose recent fundraising bottle drive was put offside by a thief.Players with the Grand Coulee Bulldogs went door-to-door with their parents last week in search of bottles and cans, with the goal of raising funds to drive down the cost of hockey fees.Mayor Wally Botkin tells radio station CJME that following an afternoon of sorting, the team figured it had about $4,000 worth of material that was loaded into a trailer.Botkin says when the parents went to take the valuable cargo to a recycler, they discovered it had been stolen.He says hockey associations and individuals far and wide have responded to the team’s plight by offering to do their own bottle drives to supplement the Bulldogs’ costs.“The response has been tremendous.”—This report by The Canadian Press was first published Sept. 27, 2019.

Rabat – Every summer, Morocco welcomes home many Moroccan expats living overseas. The latest statistics by the Ministry in Charge of Moroccans Living Abroad and Migration Affairs only confirms this.According to Minister Delegate in Charge of Moroccans Living Abroad Abdelkarim Benatiq, 961,000 Moroccan expats returned to Morocco on July 17 alone. However, the number returning may actually peak in the last two weeks of July before Eid Al Adha, the “Festival of Sacrifice,” the second of two Islamic holidays celebrated worldwide annually.The minister gave the official statistics on Thursday during the Government Council. Benatiq said that the sea route remains the most popular route for Moroccans returning home. Forty-four percent of Moroccan expats came by ferry, of which 65 percent come through the Tangier Med port.Forty-one percent of returning Moroccans came by air. Casablanca’s Mohammed V International Airport topped the list of points of entry by air as it received 30 percent of air passengers, followed by the Marrakech-Menara airport with 16 percent.Passengers travelling by bus use the Melilla border at Beni-Ansar (30 percent of traffic) and the Ceuta border (62 percent).Benatiq commended the “efficient” cooperation by all operators at the national level through the National Transit Commission and coordination with the Spanish authorities in the framework of the joint commission.The cooperation aims to ensure the safety of the 5.3 million people who make the round trip, the government spokesperson said in a press briefing.Benatiq also said that Morocco is mobilizing staff to receive Moroccans residing abroad.The minister said that 20 rest areas were built on highways across Morocco.Benatiq also mentioned that the Mohammed V Foundation for Solidarity mobilized 315 medical professionals, 782 social workers, and 126 volunteers to offer services to Moroccan expats.Members of the government saluted the efforts, saying that the will of Moroccans living abroad to help develop their country calls for intensifying the national efforts to support their needs and respond to their expectations, according to El Khalfi.On June 5, Morocco launched the “Marhaba 2018” operation to welcome home for the summer Moroccans living abroad. The operation will continue until September 15.During the Government Council, Head of Government Saad Eddine El Othmani welcomed Moroccan expatriates, wishing them a nice holiday.A recent report from the foreign exchange regulator reported an increase of 8.5 percent in remittances from Moroccan expats in the first six months of 2018 against 0.2 percent in the same period of 2017.
The operation has received just $3 million of the $10 million required to feed the worst-hit quake victims over the next six months, UN World Food Programme (WFP) officials reported. The shortfall has forced WFP’s operation in El Salvador to halve the size of monthly rations for most of those being assisted. Further exacerbating the situation, the officials note, the rainy season in El Salvador, which starts in May, is likely to trigger off damaging mud slides. Lack of shelter is also a major problem. Some 1.5 million people — one quarter of El Salvador’s population — were affected by earthquakes that rocked the country in January and February. WFP’s emergency operation has targeted 200,000 of the victims in greatest need of food aid.
Editor’s Note: Access Awareness Week is a yearly celebration to highlight the importance of accessibility and the many ways that it impacts our lives. Each day of this week we will feature an article looking at accessibility in its many forms.It’s Access Awareness Week in Ontario and Brock University continues to keep pace with new concepts that surround inclusion, pedagogy, employment and community.A shift is occurring on campus where a greater understanding of accessibility and its role in human rights is being recognized. Everyone on campus is learning the importance of human rights as they apply to accessibility and ultimately equality, said Brock’s Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act Co-ordinator Chris Lytle.Society’s understanding of the principles that guide accessibility have been a long time coming. Prior to the development of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities there was international pressure asserted by disabled people’s organizations for the development and implementation of a human rights tool that would promote inclusion across all sectors of life. This global pressure resulted in the development and ratification of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities that has now been adopted in over a 120 countries.Canada ratified the UN CRPD in 2010, and having done so, added what can be considered an interpretive tool to its already existing human rights framework. Simply put, the UN CRPD can provide a positive approach to the promotion of people with disabilities in areas where systemic barriers have traditionally excluded them.As an example, Canada could potentially use this disability and human rights lens to evolve how all citizens are viewed with regards to articles such as Equal Recognition Before the Law (Art 12), or Access to Justice (Art 13), and among others, how people with disabilities are excluded from Work and Employment (Art 27).The principles that form the convention’s human rights framework can guide the redevelopment or creation of either existing or new policy to be inclusive of people with disabilities. Among others, the principles include such themes as respect for dignity, non-discrimination, participation and inclusion, respect for difference, equality of opportunity, and accessibility.In terms of Canada’s existing framework, which is comprised of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms (Sec 15), Provincial and Territorial Human Rights Codes and the current Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), people with disabilities who live in Ontario have a multi-tiered mechanism already in place. The principles that are found in the UN CRPD are consistent with those found in the Ontario Human Rights Code (OHRC) that has primacy over the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act.The AODA does not override any section of the OHRC but the code and the act work together to create a disability-specific mechanism that takes to tasks systemic barriers that traditionally excluded people with disabilities from services and employment. It could be said that it is because of the framework of human rights principles that employers and consultants alike are able to assess whether public and private policy regarding employment is either a barrier or whether it is inclusive of people with disabilities. To view how people are treated through a human rights lens means using the above mentioned principles, as benchmarks to evaluate the inclusive nature of, say, employment and recruitment systems or customer service.In Ontario we are fortunate to have the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act that does this work for us. Wherever the AODA is used to create an inclusive environment, it can be seen as using a human rights lens to decipher whether structures need adjusting.• This article was written by Chris Lytle and Alana Sharpe
BLACKSBURG, Va. — Brian Johnson kicked a 42-yard field goal in overtime and Virginia Tech pulled out the wildest victory in its 100 meetings with Virginia, 34-31 on Friday night. The Hokies won their 15th in a row in the series and kept alive their hopes for a 26th consecutive bowl appearance.Virginia Tech (5-6, 4-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) tied the game on a fumble that went into the end zone, through the hands of a Cavaliers defender and was covered by Hezekiah Grimsley with 1:51 remaining. They won it when, after Johnson’s field goal made it 34-31 in the first overtime, the Cavaliers botched a handoff from Bryce Perkins to Jordan Ellis at the Hokies’ 14 and Emmanual Belmar recovered.That set off a wild celebration as the Hokies’ signature “Enter Sandman” entrance song rang out through Lane Stadium with fans who braved sub-zero wild chills from the start sang along celebrating the most unlikely victory by either team in the 100th installment of the rivalry.The Cavaliers (7-5, 4-4) trailed 14-0 at halftime, but scored touchdowns on their first four possessions of the second half. They went ahead with 6:51 to play when Perkins hit Hasise Dubois for 29 yards. A 28-yard field goal by Brian Delaney made it 31-24 with 2:41 left.But the Hokies weren’t finished.Facing third-and-10 from their 25, Ryan Willis scrambled and fired deep downfield to Dalton Keene, who wrestled the ball away from Virginia’s best cornerback, Bryce Hall, at the Cavaliers’ 30 yard-line for a 45-yard gain. Willis then hit Tre Turner for 11 yards and Steven Peoples burst through the line on the next play but was stripped by Joey Blount at the goal line. The ball squirted into the end zone where Cavaliers backup safety Brenton Nelson had it pop into his arms, but he couldn’t hold on and Grimsley recovered for the Hokies’ touchdown.The win snapped a four-game home losing streak for the Hokies and was Virginia’s second straight loss in overtime.CRAZY ENDINGThe end of the first half featured gamesmanship on both sides after Virginia Tech scored on a blocked punt return.The Cavaliers took over at their 29 and Virginia Tech burned its timeouts as the Cavaliers went three-and-out and punted with 1:22 left.The Hokies ran three running plays and Virginia used its two remaining timeouts. Facing fourth-and-1, the Hokies punted and Chuck Davis, attempting a fair catch, muffed it and Rashard Ashby recovered for the Hokies with eight seconds left in the half, giving Virginia Tech a chance to try for another score.Willis threw toward Grimsley, but Tim Harris intercepted for Virginia and was racing down the sideline until he was tackled at the 10 by Willis.BIG PICTUREVirginia: The Cavaliers are going bowling, but without having accomplished their primary goal for the season: beating Virginia Tech.Virginia Tech: The Hokies will play Marshall next Saturday at Lane Stadium needing a victory to extend their bowl streak.UP NEXTVirginia: The Cavaliers will await their bowl destination.Virginia Tech: The Hokies await Marshall on Dec. 1.___More AP college football: https://apnews.com/tag/Collegefootball and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25Hank Kurz Jr., The Associated Press
Ohio State junior forward Andre Wesson defends a shot from Cleveland State sophomore guard Tyree Appleby on Nov. 23 in St. John Arena. Ohio State won 89-62. Credit: Amal Saeed | Assistant Photo EditorIn its first return to the only home court it has hosted a national championship season in, Ohio State did not disappoint.After failing to pull ahead substantially to open the game, the No. 23 Buckeyes poured it on in the second half, defeating Cleveland State 89-62 in the team’s first game in St. John Arena since 2010.In front of the sold-out crowd, Ohio State shot 53.1 percent, made seven 3s and forced 16 turnovers against the Vikings.For junior forward Kaleb Wesson and sophomore forward Andre Wesson, the moment was even greater because of the history that their dad, Keith, had as a player for the Buckeyes in the 1980s.“It was special, just everybody, there was a lot of hype around this game,” Kaleb Wesson said. “It was even more special for me and [Andre] because my dad played here.”After starting the second half with a nine-point lead the Buckeyes opened the half with a 10-1 run, extending the lead to 48-30 with 16:44 to go in the game.From there, Cleveland State began to bring the pressure with a few buckets on the other end. But Ohio State countered all of them, connecting on seven of its first nine shots from the field in the second half.Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann still was not pleased about the play in transition.“We had three or four possessions where it was, we score they score, we score they score, and we got beat in transition a couple times,” Holtmann said. “I thought we were really fatigued, and we got really loose defensively.”That was all it took for the Buckeyes to take charge.Ohio State shot 59.4 percent and 5-of-8 from deep to outscore the Vikings 51-33 in the second half to seal the victory.Of the Buckeyes first 56 points, 51 were scored by the starters. All starters except sophomore forward Kyle Young, who had eight, scored in double figures. The bench shot 8-of-20 and 3-of-7 from 3.Kaleb Wesson led all scorers with 19 points, followed closely by senior guard C.J. Jackson, who had 17.Wesson shot 8-of-16 and brought in six rebounds, tied for the team high, while Jackson shot 7-of-10 and 3-of-4 from 3.Wesson said he has found a stride this year because of the play of the guys around him.“I feel I have more opportunities because of my teammates, you know my teammates stepped up really in a year,” Kaleb Wesson said. “I feel like if more people step up I’ll get more shots.”Ohio State led Cleveland State 38-29 at the half, with Jackson leading all scorers with 10 points.The Buckeyes held the Vikings to 34.4 percent shooting overall in the first half, but struggled from behind the arc, making only two of their 11 3-point attempts.“I thought they really, physically challenged us and were the tougher team, certainly for 20 minutes of the game,” Holtmann said. “It was good for us, good to see us respond.”Young started the momentum early for Ohio State, making all three of his shots for six points and three rebounds in the first nine minutes of the game.The Buckeyes’ defense started out hot as well, forcing five turnovers in the first 10 minutes and nine overall in the first half.Ohio State moves on to face Syracuse at the Schottenstein Center at 7 p.m. on Wednesday.

Prince Charles places a wreath during a ceremony to honour the fallen heroes of the World Wars, in AbujaCredit: Pius Utomi/AFP “I just love it. It makes me laugh so much,” he said.The Prince’s final day in Nigeria saw him pay his respects at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission Memorial in Abuja, laying a wreath and hearing both Christian and Islamic prayers for those who died in the First and Second World Wars.Later, he watched chickens being vaccinated and saw a new machine designed to acha, a cereal crop tipped by some to be the “next quinoa”.In a final engagement, he took part in a roundtable discussion about intercommunity violence, asking questions about how climate change, which has reduced land resources in the region, and population growth have impacted on Nigeria’s levels of violent conflict.On Thursday afternoon, the Prince flew back to Britain to prepare for the Royal Family’s annual involvement in Remembrance services, which will this year see him lay a wreath at the Cenotaph on behalf on the Queen to commemorate the centenary of Armistice Day. In his many trips around the world, he has mastered several languages and tried his hand at countless more.Addressing guests at a final evening reception of his West African tour, the Prince of Wales has gone one step further, delivering part of his speech in pidgin.The Prince, who has spent his last day in Nigeria before flying back to Britain, greeting astonished guests with a cheerful “how you dey?” before telling them of his good fortune to be there: “God dun butta my bread”.Wheeling out an array of idioms in pidgin and Yoruba, he laughed along with guests who were left amused and incredulous at his knowledge of the local phrases.Telling assembled dignitaries, and celebrities including supermodel Naomi Campbell, footballer Joseph Yobo and an array of Nigerian television and social media stars “my friends, you do well!, he signalled that he would soon leave before he outstayed his welcome with the words: “If person too tey for party, e go follow dem wash plate!” Charles, Prince of Wales holds chips produced by a female entrepreneur at the Sarius Palmetum, Abuja Botanical GardenCredit:Reuters Earlier in the day, at a British Council events celebrating the arts, the Prince had told Nigerians of his love for African highlife music and pidgin, which is spoken widely across Nigeria. “I find it hard to believe that nearly thirty years have passed since I first came to this city and having finally made it back here, Ladies and Gentlemen, all I can say is that “God don butta my bread!”Touching on the serious message behind his speech, the ties between Britain and Nigeria and the innovation of the country’s young people, he announced plans to bring projects supported by the Prince’s Trust International to help entrepreneurs.“Your Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen,” he continued. “Sadly, my time in Lagos, and indeed in Nigeria and West Africa on this Tour, is fast coming to an end, and soon I must take my leave from you all. “As I am sure you will all agree, “If person too tey for party, e go follow dem wash plate.”“I will take with me, however, so many special memories of Nigeria, and of Lagos, and of your essential place within our Commonwealth Family.“ I need hardly say that I hope, very much, that I might return before too long. In the meantime I shall remember, with such fondness, the warmth of the welcome that I have received here and, in particular, the remarkable vibrancy and energy of this extraordinary city.”
Previous rumours have been confirmed by the recently published EPA documents that instead of its traditional induction engine, Tesla has decided to use a Permanent Magnet Motor (PMM) in its Model 3. “This means PMMs have nearly 100% market share in automotive applications – underpinning the great growth potential for NdPr,” says Peak Resources.“So the 500,000 already ordered Telsa Model 3s, of which production recently started, will consume a minimum of 600 t incremental new demand of NdPr oxide per year. This is equivalent to 2% of the world’s global legal annual produced Nd/Pr oxide – and that’s just the beginning! According to Bloomberg, more than 120 additional new electric cars are in the pipeline to be launched during the next 2.5 years to join the Model 3.”Peak also reports that “Baotou China announced its new August price list with a steep price increase for neodymium/praseodymium oxide 99% domestic China from 330 RMB to 420 RMB per kg. After that the market climbed to 458.5 RMB/kg or $68.44/kg.”Peak announced the results of the BFS during the last quarter for the Ngualla rare earth project in Tanzania and the Tees Valley refinery in the UK. That confirms Ngualla has the potential to become one of the lowest cost NdPr projects worldwide with key metrics including:A significant reduction in annual operating costs of $35 million, or 30%, compared to the PFSA 30 year life project with production strongly aligned to the permanent magnet marketPre tax NPV10 of $676 million and pre tax IRR of 25%Revised Ore Reserve estimate confirms Ngualla as one of the highest grade NdPr rare earth deposits in the world.The company is in the final stages of completing the documentation required to lodge a mining licence application for the Ngualla project. It will, during this process, gain further clarity on the practical impact of recent legislative changes governing the resources sector approved by the National Assembly post quarter end on 3 and 4 July 2017.The mining licence application is in line with the company’s primary business strategy to position Ngualla as one of the very few projects that is ready for implementation in time to meet the widely predicted surge in demand for the magnet materials NdPr from electric and hybrid vehicles (EVs).Peak says “markets are becoming increasingly aware that NdPr has a similar importance as a raw material for the manufacture of EVs as have lithium and cobalt, which have experienced marked price rises in recent months.”Final products from the project planned to be produced annually are:2,420 t of neodymium and praseodymium oxide (2N minimum 75% Nd2O3)6,940 t lanthanum carbonate (equivalent to 3,650 t/y oxide)3,005 t cerium carbonate (equivalent to 1,660 t/y oxide)530 t of mixed SEG and Heavy rare earth carbonate (equivalent to 280 t/y oxide).

A fall chinook run for the record books — 1.6 million salmon, the largest since counting began at Bonneville Dam — is forecast for the Columbia River in 2014.State, federal and tribal biologists are predicting 1,602,900 fall chinook are headed for the Columbia, 26 percent better than the unexpected high of 1.26 million of 2013.“If there is ever a year folks want to take time off and catch fish, this would be the year,” said Robert Moxley, a member of the bistate Columbia River Recreational Adviser Group. “I’m more excited than you can possibly imagine.”The fall chinook forecast comes on the heels of a prediction for a huge run of 964,000 coho salmon destined for the Columbia River.Topping the long list of good news is that 973,300 “upriver brights” make up more than half of the 1.6 million forecast. Upriver brights are primarily wild salmon originating from Hanford Reach, the free-flowing stretch of the Columbia River in central Washington, along with Priest Rapids Hatchery and two Snake River hatcheries.Upriver brights are the most prized of the stocks of fall chinook. As table fare, an upriver bright fall chinook pales compared to an upper Columbia spring chinook. But they are as good as summer chinook and superior to coho.Fall chinook are larger than spring chinook.Two-thirds of the upriver brights are expected to be 4-year-olds, approximately 12 to 18 pounds, compared to 5- to 8-pound 3-year-olds.“This is an incredible outlook for fall salmon, said Guy Norman, regional director for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. “I would never have bet on this kind of run strength occurring in the Columbia during my career.” Click to enlarge.
Disney CEO Bob Iger said before Wednesday’s dedication of Disneyland’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge that the studio’s productions in Georgia could be at risk if a new anti-abortion law is implemented. Getty Images Production of Disney movies in Georgia could come to a halt if a new state anti-abortion law takes effect, Disney CEO Bob Iger told Reuters on Wednesday.Signed on May 7 by Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp, the bill would prohibit abortions from being performed in the state after a fetal heartbeat is detected. The law is set to take effect in 2020.The legislation has prompted a backlash from many in the film and television industries to boycott the state, including Handmaid’s Tale director Reed Morano, actress Kristen Wiig and Bridesmaids writer Annie Mumolo.Disney has filmed several recent box office blockbusters in Georgia, including Marvel’s Black Panther, Captain America: Civil War and Ant-Man. But Iger said the abortion law would make it “very difficult” to continue production in the state. “I rather doubt we will” continue filming in Georgia if the law is implemented, Iger told Reuters ahead of the dedication the new Star Wars section at Disneyland. “I think many people who work for us will not want to work there, and we will have to heed their wishes in that regard. Right now we are watching it very carefully.”If the law takes effect, “I don’t see how it’s practical for us to continue to shoot there,” he said. Georgia has become a major production hub in the past decade by offering 20% in tax credits. Last year, film production created more than 92,000 local jobs in the state and $2.7 billion in spending, according to the Georgia Department of Economic Development.Iger’s comments come a day after similar comments from Netflix. Ted Sarandos, the streaming giant’s chief content officer, told Variety it would consider pulling its programs being produced in Georgia out of the state should the abortion ban go into effect.Disney representatives didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

It consists basically of a list of scheduled tasks that are executed when certain events occur. These events may for instance be on system start.While all Windows users may manage tasks using the Task Scheduler, doing so requires some understanding of tasks and quite a bit of research.Not so much when it comes to tasks added by third-party programs installed on the system, but for native Windows tasks.PC Tasks OptimizerPC Tasks Optimizer has been designed for exactly that purpose. It is a third-party program that assists you in disabling tasks that you may not require.It displays a list of “I use”, “I don’t use” scenarios on start that you go through to keep tasks enabled or turn them off.This scenario-based approach makes it a bit easier for users to decide whether a task is required or not.As far as tasks are concerned, PC Tasks Optimizer lists 21 scenarios that let you turn off one or multiple associated tasks.You may turn off tasks related to privacy for instance, and tasks that power Windows features such as Windows Defender or Error Reporting.IssuesWhile some may require additional research to understand them better, most scenarios listed should suffice to make a decision.For instance, “I do not want Windows to perform automatic Registry backups” is easily understandable. While I can think of only one reason to disable the task — if you use a third-party program to create Registry backups — it is easy enough to understand the consequences of disabling the task.Some scenarios may require research however. If you don’t know what Windows HotStart is for instance, you may not know whether it is safe to turn off the task.One of the shortcomings of PC Tasks Optimizer is that it does not provide explanation about each feature listed in one of the scenarios. The only information it provides you with apart from the scenario description itself is the description and path of the task when you select it.Another issue that users may run into is how scenarios are worded. The statement “I have opted out of the Microsoft Customer Experience program” suggests that users may need to opt out of the program before they can disable associated tasks.There is however no indication how that is done or where users would find the option. Ultimately however, you may turn off any task listed by PC Tasks Optimizer without having to turn off certain features beforehand.Last but not least, a couple of spelling mistakes give the program a less than professional look and feel.Closing WordsPC Tasks Optimizer’s aim is to make task management easier to understand. It does so to a degree, but does not go far enough as users will still have to research certain features or names to understand better what a task is all about and whether it can be disabled safely.The program is compatible with all recent versions of Microsoft Windows. It does require the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.2 though.Please note that the website the program is offered on may spawn popup offers for software unrelated to PC Tasks Optimizer.Summary12345 Author Rating5 based on 7 votes Software Name PC Tasks OptimizerOperating System WindowsSoftware Category AdministrationLanding Page https://www.smartpcutilities.com/tasksoptimizer.html Advertisement

Share in Data, Government, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicing Consumer Sentiment Weakens in Preliminary September Report The “”Thomson Reuters/University of Michigan Index of Consumer Sentiment””:http://www.sca.isr.umich.edu/ fell to a five-month low of 76.8 in September’s preliminary report, spelling a potentially weak third quarter in terms of consumption growth.[IMAGE]Out of a group of economists surveyed by _Bloomberg_, the median projection for September’s preliminary reading was 82. Estimates ranged from 77 to 85.The decline in overall sentiment was largely due to a drop in the Expectations Index, which measures consumer confidence for the next six months. That index fell to an eight-month low of 67.2.[COLUMN_BREAK]The expectation for inflation over the next year rose to a six-month high of 3.2 percent, “”giving the Fed more reason to begin the tapering of QE3 [quantitative easing] at the FOMC [Federal Open Market Committee] meeting next week,”” said Amna Asaf, economist at “”Capital Economics””:https://www.capitaleconomics.com/. The Federal Reserve’s loose monetary policy over the past year has been based largely on the currently low inflation and high unemployment rate.Meanwhile, the Current Conditions Index, which serves more as a measure of personal finances and the job market, fell to 91.8, another five-month low.””On the whole, based on the historical relationship, the expectations index now suggests that third-quarter consumption growth might slow down a bit, from the second quarter,”” Asaf said. “”However, near-term outlook has improved. The recent rally in stock markets along with the improving trend in actual retail sales data suggest that prospects for a pickup in fourth-quarter consumption growth are improving.””While the mid-September report may point to a weaker month for sentiment, the final numbers–to be released September 27–may play out differently. For example, while August’s index value of 82.1 represented a decline from July, it was still stronger than the mid-month report indicated.
