Taylor Council passes first two readings that will allow Breweries & Cannabis Retail within the District

first_imgMore information on the Bylaw amendments can be found on the District of Taylor’s website. TAYLOR, B.C. – At a District of Taylor Council meeting, on Tuesday, Council passed the first two readings of a Bylaw that would allow for Micro Breweries, Craft Distilleries, and Cannabis Retail within the District.Earlier this year, the District had been contacted by local business investors that showed interest in developing a small scale craft brewery within the municipality.According to District Staff, after reviewing the District’s Zoning Bylaw, it was determined that the proposed use is not permitted in any of Taylor’s commercial zones.- Advertisement -Based on the interest expressed by the proponents, Staff prepared a proposal of zoning by-law amendments which looked at allowing both breweries and the sale of cannabis.The Cannabis Retail amendments proposed to the District of Taylor’s Zoning Bylaw are modelled closely after those adopted by the City of Fort St John.Later this summer, the District will be holding a public hearing on these Bylaw amendments before being adopted.Advertisementlast_img read more

Ronaldo breaks new ground as Madrid edge out Dormund

first_img0Shares0000Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates his goal against Borussia Dortmund in teh UEFA Champions League. PHOTO/Daily MailMADRID, Spain, Dec 7- Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to ever score in all six Champions League group games in one season as Real Madrid edged out a dispirited Borussia Dortmund 3-2 on Wednesday.Lucas Vazquez grabbed the winner nine minutes from time for the European champions, who were already guaranteed to go through to the last 16 as runners-up in Group H to Tottenham Hotspur. Ronaldo took his tally to nine goals in six Europan appearances this season with a spectacular long-range effort into the top corner after Borja Mayoral’s opener gave Real a 2-0 lead inside 12 minutes.Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang continued his excellent record against Madrid with a quickfire double either side of half-time to bring Dortmund level.But despite Vazquez’s late strike, the Germans drop into the Europa League with a record low two points thanks to their better goal difference over APOEL Nicosia, who were defeated 3-0 at Spurs.Real were, though, hit by a fresh injury blow as Raphael Varane limped off just before half-time.Zinedine Zidane now faces a defensive crisis ahead of the visit of Sevilla on Saturday with captain Sergio Ramos, right-back Dani Carvajal and holding midfielder Casemiro all suspended.Perre Emerick Aubameyang scores for Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League tie against Real Madrid. PHOTO/Daily MailZidane made six changes from the side that started Saturday’s 0-0 draw at Athletic Bilbao, but the hosts still made a flying start.Ronaldo’s fine through ball just evaded Isco, but fell perfectly into the path of Mayoral and the 20-year-old kept his cool to chip the onrushing Roman Burki for his first Champions League goal.By contrast, Ronaldo had his 114th in the competition moments later as he lined up a sumptuous strike from 25 yards.However, the warning signs of a Dortmund recovery were in evidence as the first-half wore on as Varane had to make last-ditch challenges to deny Aubameyang and Shinji Kagawa.Aubameyang has spoken openly of his desire to play for Madrid one day and did his case of a dream move no harm with two classy finishes either side of half-time.Once Varane limped off, Aubameyang was left free inside the box to plant a diving header inside the far corner two minutes before half-time.And just four minutes after the break Dortmund were level as Aubameyang dinked a lovely finish over Keylor Navas after his initial effort had been saved by the Madrid goalkeeper.Ronaldo was wrongly denied his second of the night by the offside flag as he prodded home from close range.But moments later Madrid did grab the winner when Vazquez’s effort trundled past Burki, who was slow to react as the ball nestled in the bottom corner.Dortmund should still have earned a share of the points, but Kagawa blasted a glorious chance over the bar as the German giants’ run without a win in the Champions League or Bundesliga stretched to 11 games.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Spurs told: ‘Forget about the Champions League and actually win something’

first_imgGlenn Hoddle has told Tottenham to forget about challenging in the Champions League or Premier League this season, and focus on winning the FA Cup or EFL Cup instead.The White Hart Lane legend says there is no point in Spurs fighting for a top four finish if they can’t even make it out of their Champions League group, after a defeat to Barcelona at Wembley dented their hopes of progression in Europe.Injury-hit Tottenham were soundly beaten 4-2 by the Spanish giants at Wembley on Wednesday night, with Lionel Messi grabbing the headlines with two goals.Maurico Pochettino branded his team ‘heroes’ following the match, but a second straight group stage defeat leaves Spurs’ European hopes in doubt as they remain pointless after two games.The result also represents a big blow to Tottenham’s lofty ambitions and raises doubts over whether this team, who are now more or less in their prime, will ever reach their goal of lifting major silverware. 2 And Hoddle has urged Spurs to forget their distant hopes of top honours this season, and instead focus on actually winning something.Asked if he can see his former club winning anything this season, Hoddle said on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast: “Not at the moment, no. I really don’t. I don’t think they’ve got the depth.“I do believe they’ve got a very good side and a great manager and they’re going forward, but at the moment they’ve just hit the buffers.“Trophies are the number one for Tottenham.“What’s the point of getting in the top four if you’re not good enough to get out of the group stages of the Champions League? I don’t get it.“Players want to win things and if that’s the FA Cup or League Cup, I think it’s a stepping stone.“That would be a foundation to go and win something else, something bigger further down the line.” The time has come for Tottenham to start delivering on all their promise under Pochettino Hoddle also said the result against Barcelona made it ‘glaringly obvious’ the club should have strengthened the squad over the summer, after they ended the transfer window without making a single signing.“I feel they should have strengthened the squad in the summer for nights exactly like this, when you get injuries and suspensions, these are the key games where you’ve got to go deep into your squad,” he said.“And I think this game shows that the squad hasn’t got the depth Pochettino and Daniel Levy really believe it had. I think that was glaringly obvious.“It was a very disappointing result, but what a performance from Barcelona and Messi, they were just wonderful.”Listen back to Glenn Hoddle on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast IN FULL above!center_img Spurs struggled against Barca without four key men – with Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli, Jan Vertonghen and Mousa Dembele all injured 2 🗣️ Dean Saunders has a stark warning for #THFC if they don’t improve their squad and become real challengers in the Premier League and Champions League… pic.twitter.com/yVaQRQNbLQ— The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast (@SportsBreakfast) October 4, 2018last_img read more

Donegal’s ‘Book of Honour’ is a labour of love for Curator

first_imgDonegal County Museum Curator Judith McCarthy has been working on updating the County Donegal Book of Honour for the last few years and describes the task as a ‘labour of love.’Judith McCarthy said the project has allowed her to build on the great work done by Paddy Harte Snr and the County Donegal Book of Honour Committee almost 16 years ago.“I think it is really important that we remember all those who gave their lives during World War 1 – if we don’t remember them who will. “There were many Donegal families who lost loved ones during this war and we are planning to publish a new edition of the Book of Honour in November to mark the centenary of the ending of the war and as a tribute to all those from Donegal who died.“We are keen to get information that will allow us to fill in some of the gaps that we currently have so that we can have as complete a record as possible” says Ms McCarthy.The County Donegal Book of Honour, The Great War 1914-1918 which was first published in 2002 contains the names of all those from Donegal who died during World War I. The date for submissions to the new edition, including amendments and new information, has been extended to 31 January 2018.Judith is inspired for personal reasons as she too has family members who lost their lives during this war. “My mother’s uncle died in 1917 from injuries sustained in France during the war and last year on the 100th anniversary of his death my family and I visited his grave in Dublin. It was an emotional thing to do and even more so when you think that for nearly 100 years his story had been forgotten like so many others in Ireland.“My father also lost an uncle in the war – he was only 19 years old and my grandmother never quite got over his loss as he was her youngest brother. I am sure this heartache was felt in many Donegal families as so many young lives were lost during the war.”“We now have more information on the men and women who died, including those who enlisted in countries such as Canada, Australia and the USA and with more records being made available online we have discovered the names of other people from Donegal or with a strong Donegal connection that died during the war and these names will be included in the next edition of this book”.“However, there are still gaps in the information that we have and that is why we are keen to get more information from the public. For example, we have details of individuals such as Hugh Boyle from Donegal Town who was killed in action on 15 October 1915 but we have not been able to confirm these details in relevant records so we would like to hear from anyone who may have more information”.Further information is also needed for T. Graham, Killymard, Donegal Town; Martin Morris, Donegal Town; Francis T. Kenny, Ardara; Reginald Belvoir, Dunfanaghy, Richard Warburton; Charles Harrigan, Muff and James O’Donnell, Moville. Anyone who can provide more detail on these individuals should consult the draft Book of Honour available at www.donegalcoco.ie and entries that require further information are highlighted in blue in the draft book. In updating the County Donegal Book of Honour: The Great War 1914-1918, the Museum is asking the public to consult the draft version of the Book which is available on www.donegalcoco.ie or by appointment in Donegal County Museum.If any member of the public has any updated or new information or wish to amend any information already contained in the book, they can do so by filling in the details on the Book of Honour form (available at www.donegalcoco.ie) and post or email it to County Donegal Book of Honour, Donegal County Museum, High Road, Letterkenny Co Donegal; or email to donegalbookofhonour@donegalcoco.ie by the 31st January 2018.BackgroundThe County Donegal Book of Honour, The Great War 1914-1918 contains the names of all those from Donegal who died during World War I. The County Donegal Book of Honour was first published in 2002 and was the culmination of the hard work and dedication of Paddy Harte Snr and the County Donegal Book of Honour Committee who oversaw the research and compilation of all the information contained within the Book.

Why do chimps kill each other?

first_imgWar—what is it good for? “Absolutely nothing” according to the refrain of a 1970 hit song. Many humans would agree with this sentiment. But a major new study of warfare in chimpanzees finds that lethal aggression can be evolutionarily beneficial in that species, rewarding the winners with food, mates, and the opportunity to pass along their genes. The findings run contrary to recent claims that chimps fight only if they are stressed by the impact of nearby human activity—and could help explain the origins of human conflict as well.Ever since primatologist Jane Goodall’s pioneering work at Gombe Stream National Park in Tanzania in the 1970s, researchers have been aware that male chimps often organize themselves into warring gangs that raid each other’s territory, sometimes leaving mutilated dead bodies on the battlefield. Primatologists have concluded that their territorial battles are evolutionarily adaptive.But some anthropologists have resisted this interpretation, insisting instead that today’s chimps are aggressive only because they are endangered by human impact on their natural environment. For example, when humans cut down forests for farming or other uses, the loss of habitat forces chimps to live in close proximity to one another and to other groups. Feeding chimps can also increase their population density by causing them to cluster around human camps, thus causing more competition between them.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)To test between the two hypotheses, a large team of primatologists led by Michael Wilson of the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, analyzed data from 18 chimpanzee communities, along with four bonobo communities, from well-studied sites across Africa. The sites included famous chimp and bonobo hangouts such as the Gombe and Mahale national parks in Tanzania, Kibale in Uganda, Fongoli in Senegal, and Lomako in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The data covered a total of 426 researcher years spent watching chimps and 96 years of bonobo observation. All told, the scientists tallied 152 chimp killings, of which 58 were directly observed, 41 inferred from evidence such as mutilated bodies on the ground, and 53 suspected either because the animals had disappeared or had injuries consistent with fighting.The researchers created a series of computer models to test whether the observed killings could be better explained by adaptive strategies or human impacts. The models incorporated variables such as whether the animals had been fed by humans, the size of their territory (smaller territories presumably corresponding to greater human encroachment), and other indicators of human disturbance, all of which were assumed to be related to human impacts; and variables such as the geographic location of the animals, the number of adult males, and the population density of the animals, which the team considered more likely to be related to adaptive strategies.Online today in Nature, the team reports that the models that best explained the data were those that assumed the killings were related to adaptive strategies, which in statistical terms were nearly seven times as strongly supported as models that assumed human impacts were mostly responsible. For example, 63% of the fallen warriors were attacked by animals from outside their own in-group, supporting, the authors say, previous evidence that chimps in particular band together to fight other groups for territory, food, and mates. Moreover, males were responsible for 92% of all attacks, confirming earlier hypotheses that warfare is a way for males to spread their genes. In contrast, the team concludes, none of the factors related to human impacts correlated with the amount of warfare observed.The study also confirmed earlier evidence that bonobos are, relatively speaking, more peaceful than their chimpanzee cousins. Although fewer bonobo groups were included in the study, the researchers observed only one suspected killing among that species, at Lomako—a site where animals have not been fed by humans and disturbance by human activity has been judged to be low.“The contrast could not be more stark” between how the two hypotheses fared, says William McGrew, a primatologist at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom, who praises the study as a “monumental collaborative effort.” Joan Silk, an anthropologist at Arizona State University, Tempe, agrees. The study “weighs competing hypotheses systematically,” she says. “Advocates of the human impact hypothesis … must challenge [the study’s] empirical findings, or modify their position.”But leading advocates of the human impacts hypothesis are not giving ground. “I am surprised that [the study] was accepted for publication,” says Robert Sussman, an anthropologist at Washington University in St. Louis, who questions the criteria the team used to distinguish between the two hypotheses. For example, he says, a higher number of males in a group and greater population density—which the researchers used as indicators of adaptive strategies—could equally be the result of human disturbances. Sussman also criticizes the team for mixing observed, inferred, and suspected cases of killings, which he calls “extremely unscientific.”R. Brian Ferguson, an anthropologist at Rutgers University, Newark, in New Jersey, agrees, adding that other assumptions the team made—such as using larger chimp territories as a proxy for more minimal human disturbances—could be wrong, because “some populations within large protected areas have been heavily impacted.”As for understanding the roots of human warfare, Wilson says that chimpanzee data alone can’t settle the debate about why we fight: Is it an intrinsic part of our nature or driven more by cultural and political factors? Still, he says, “if chimpanzees kill for adaptive reasons, then perhaps other species do, too, including humans.”last_img read more
