The incidents are unrelated, but the arrests happened within a week’s time.Sergeant David Bridel has been with the force for 21 years and was off-duty at the time of the alleged incident. Police would not elaborate on the details leading up to his arrest, but say a member of the public called police when the incident occurred in St.Catharines.Police chief McGuire says the incident happened in the officers personal life and it is the same for Constable Mark Taks, a 2-year veteran of the force. He has been charged with two counts of harrassment.The investigation into that case started in late February after police were called. Taks was granted bail Wednesday morning but was given strict conditions, including having zero contact with the victim and their family, and he’s not to carry a weapon or cellphone unless for work purposes.Both men were uniform patrol officers and have been suspended with pay. They are expected back in court on May 23rd.
The woman at the centre of what the Crown described as one of the largest investor frauds in Saskatchewan history — taking victims for $5.5 million — says she’s sorry, and hopes to serve at least a portion of her time in a healing lodge.“I’m sorry for what happened,” Alena Marie Pastuch said Thursday, appearing in Regina court via video link from Prince Albert’s Pine Grove Correctional Centre. “I feel badly,” she added, saying she now appreciates the impact she’s had on the lives of her victims.As remarked upon by the judge, Pastuch was virtually unseen throughout Thursday’s proceedings. She sat completely bent over, so only a sliver of a grey sweatshirt was visible on the camera. She so, revealing only the crown of her head and her neck at times, as she gave her slightly-muffled apology.Her lawyer Kevin Hill, appearing on her behalf in the Regina courtroom, explained Pastuch wasn’t being disrespectful to the court, but was more comfortable in that position due to a health condition.The 54-year-old former Regina businesswoman was found guilty on June 27 of fraud, theft and money laundering, five years after she was first arrested and 12 years since investors began putting money into her five tech companies, ostensibly to create anti-fraud and child protection software. Justice Richard Elson stayed the latter two charges, finding they essentially duplicated the fraud count, and “no person is to be punished more than once for the same offence.”Crown prosecutor Dana Brule sought a 10-year prison sentence, on par with other large-scale frauds in this province and elsewhere.After parting company with four lawyers (one private, one Legal Aid and two court appointments), Pastuch represented herself during the trial when Elson declined to allow her a third court-appointed lawyer. She was, however, represented by Hill for the sentencing submissions Thursday. He suggested a six-year, three-month prison term is appropriate and told the court Pastuch would like Elson to recommend she serve her time at a healing lodge. Such a recommendation wouldn’t be binding on Correctional Service Canada but would be considered.Although there are approximately 80 victims, only 18 submitted victim-impact statements, which Brule read aloud in court. They spoke about trust and loss — trust that they were dealing with a respectable, successful businesswoman who came from a “good” family of values built on faith; the loss of millions that had altered lives and futures.“They say pay it forward, but in our case, pay it back,” read one statement from a couple who lost $50,000.“My retirement is not what I envisioned,” said another from a man, now in his 70s, who was forced to sell a mobile home he had for retirement in Arizona. He lost $200,000.A couple who lost $1.2 million had hoped to spend their retirement working with charitable causes. Instead they couldn’t retire, and ended up in counselling to deal with their new reality. They felt embarrassed and hoodwinked by a woman they believed in, and disappointed in a justice system that has moved slowly.Elson said he’ll render his decision Friday morning.Here’s a review of Elson’s verdict in June and some of the Saskatchewan case precedents he was given Thursday by the Crown:THE VICTIMSAfter helping organize a family reunion in 2004, Pastuch renewed old connections or made new ones, and her early investors were largely what Elson described as “semi-distant” family members. But as word spread of her “guaranteed” or “zero risk” investment, more people came on board, while others upped their ante. In the words of one investor, he felt certain she wouldn’t “cheat” family.Some 80 people, 56 of whom testified at a lengthy trial earlier this year and last, invested more than $5.5 million between January 2007 and November 2009, when the province’s securities regulator issued a cease trade order against Pastuch and her companies. Many victims told not only of their own investments but also those of others who, as couples or a group, pooled funds.Investments by individuals ranged from $10,000 to $1.26 million, the latter by a couple looking for a secure place to grow their money after selling the farm. A total of 17 individuals or groups put in amounts at or exceeding six figures.Investors only recovered $137,097; most lost everything. Former Regina businesswoman Alena Marie Pastuch, left, leaves Regina’s Court of Queen’s Bench in custody on June 27 after being found guilty on charges of theft, fraud and money laundering. TROY FLEECE / Regina Leader-Post Alena Marie Pastuch, 48, tries to hide her appearance after being released from Provincial Court in Regina on Thursday, June 5, 2014. BRANDON HARDER / Regina Leader-Post DREAMS AND DECEPTIONSThe judge found “the evidence of culpable dishonesty is — in a word — overwhelming.” Pastuch told early investors in 2007 she was trying to purchase the rights to computer software technology from a struggling developer. She planned to continue development so the technology could be sold quickly for a considerable profit. In time, the promises and the nature of the business expanded to the creation of their own software and assertions of interest from banks, large companies and child safety organizations.Elson found Pastuch knowingly and intentionally misled investors in several ways: the “purported business ventures” produced no marketable product or product sales; there was no originating business from which technology was purchased; there were no other injections of funds in the projects other than those from investors; there was no interest by prospective purchasers to acquire either technology or shares; there were no accounts receivable coming in from the Saskatchewan government (funds which investors were told would help act as security); she never received a $20-million valuation of the business; but for one person, there were no departing or removed investors who received full repayment; and there was no other person, board or executive to which she reported, leaving Pastuch with exclusive control.Elson found Pastuch, by conservative estimate, diverted more than $3 million of the investors’ funds and spent a “considerable” amount for personal use, including gambling, purchasing collectibles to use in a memorabilia sales business, promoting a rock band, paying a mortgage, as well as buying a house, high-end clothing, travel, fitness services, hair and beauty services, chiropractic treatments, plastic surgery, and charitable contributions.PRECEDENTS FOR PENALTIESA $5.5-million fraud puts it in the “upper echelons of (such) cases in Saskatchewan,” Brule said after the verdict. He cited four similar precedents from this province:Gregor Gmerek — received a four-year prison sentence in 2018 after siphoning off more than $1.2 million from a livestock brokerage company while handling the accounting. It’s currently under appeal.Steven Vincent Weeres — misappropriated between $650,000 and $800,000 invested in Master Keys to Success. He was sentenced in 2015 to five years in prison (less 505 days’ credit for pre-trial custody), plus two additional years if he failed to pay a $200,000 fine, upheld on appeal.Ronald Jerry Fast — headed Marathon Leasing Corp., a vehicle-leasing company that became a $16.7-million Ponzi scheme, bilking 235 victims. He was sentenced in 2014 to seven years in prison, upheld on appeal.Klaus Link — took $1.7 million from investors and from pension funds he managed as operator of Tri-Link Consultants. He was sentenced in 2013 to 5 1/2 years in prison.

As soon as Howard “Hopalong” Cassady stepped onto the field, he was a difference-maker.“He was the guy that could make the big play when you needed it the most,” said Jack Park, author of The Official Ohio State Football Encyclopedia.That is exactly what the running back did in his first game at Ohio State, as he recorded three touchdowns in a win over Indiana.Cassady played for OSU from 1952-55, which was unusual at the time because most players only played three seasons then.Cassady also played for the baseball team. He led the team in home runs in 1955 and in stolen bases in 1956.He graduated from Central High School in Columbus.When he came to OSU, he played offense and defense for under legendary coach Woody Hayes.Cassady won the Heisman Trophy and the Maxwell Award in 1955 in his senior season. To top it off, he was named the Associated Press “Male Athlete of the Year” in 1955, beating out boxer Rocky Marciano and quarterback Otto Graham of the Cleveland Browns.This was monumental, considering a pair of Hall of Fame center fielders — Willie Mays and Mickey Mantle — won it in 1954 and 1956, respectively.Cassady excelled on defense as much as he did on offense. As a cornerback, he never allowed a reception to be caught on him in a Big Ten game, Park said. He also said that when Cassady was on the field, OSU never allowed a big play on defense.But what made Cassady famous was his elusive running style, which earned him his nickname from sportswriters. He would hop all over the field.“Hopalong was fast and good at getting around the corner,” Park said.The play that determined Cassady’s career was an 88-yard interception return against the No. 2 ranked Wisconsin Badgers in 1954. A close game in the third quarter, Cassady intercepted a pass and ran it back for a touchdown. This was symbolic because it changed the atmosphere of the game and saved the season, leading to the Buckeyes’ second national title.“This [showed] the real mark of a champion,” Park said.After college, Cassady spent six years with the Detroit Lions and also played a season each with the Philadelphia Eagles and the Cleveland Browns. He returned to the Lions for his eighth and final season before retiring.In 1979, Cassady was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame. On Nov. 18, 2000, at halftime against Michigan, OSU retired Cassady’s No. 40 in Ohio Stadium.Outside of football, Cassady became an entrepreneur and formed a company that manufactured concrete pipe, steel and ships. More recently, he has served as a scout for the New York Yankees, and has spent summers in Columbus as the first base coach for the former minor league Columbus Clippers. He now resides in Tampa, Fla.
Understandably, especially in the run-up to the long weekend, people are not happy: The INTO called the non-payment of salaries “unacceptable”:The delay in paying salaries to primary teachers had caused a great deal of worry, disruption and unnecessary hardship. No-one affected by this situation should be at any financial loss as a result of the delay.Explainer: What is this SEPA thing all about?> Source: Mary Galvin/Twitter Updated 11:02BANK OF IRELAND has confirmed that a delay in their own processes meant that many public and private sector workers were not paid as expected this morning.They will now not be paid until tomorrow morning.There was a flood of complaints this morning from workers in the public service that salary payments have not been lodged as expected in their bank accounts. A similar issue appeared to have occurred for private sector workers banking with Bank of Ireland.Gardai, nurses, members of the Defence Forces, primary school teachers, university staff as well as some employees with Irish Rail and An Post took to social media, email and online forums to ask why they have not been paid.After several hours of investigating the problem, Bank of Ireland confirmed that there had been a delay in one file and this had affected some payments. This was their spokesperson’s statement:I can confirm that a payment of credits was delayed last night and will not be processed until this evening.This delay only affected one file and the majority of BOI payments processed in a timely manner.The Bank apologies profusely to those customers affected and wishes to reassure them that the credits will be in their account by first thing tomorrow morning.The spokesperson also told TheJournal.ie that additional charges normally associated with late payments from accounts to service direct debits etc. will be waived on this occasion as the fault is with BoI. “If anyone has serious issues, they should contact their local branch immediately,” she said.Earlier this morning, Financial Shared Services (FSS), which operates the payroll for the public sector out of their offices in Killarney, Co Kerry, said that they could confirm that it is the case that no public servant had received payment this morning into their accounts.The assistant principal of FSS said this morning that it was an issue with processing through Bank of Ireland.FSS uses Bank of Ireland to send out payments for the gardai, for civil servants who are paid fortnightly and a few smaller groups. This means that even if an individual employee has their personal account with another financial institution, their payments this morning will have been affected by the BoI issue.Employees with the Prison Service were not due to be paid this week, so even though FSS processes their salaries, this issue will not affect them.However, it appears that it is not just workers in the public sector that are affected. From the comments section on this article alone: Nothing like finding tumble weed in your account the morning of payday. Prob with @bankofireland say @UCC to be sorted this eve, hopefully— Mary Galvin (@GalvinMary) July 31, 2014 A spokesperson for Bank of Ireland originally suggested to TheJournal.ie that the issue might have been related to how SEPA payments are made. While the Single Euro Payments Area system has been in place for several months now, she said:We are not aware of any major delays. It could be a consequence of SEPA payments which are processed throughout the day, rather than once at the start of the day.Although that turned out not to be the case, there has been a problem with SEPA payments when they are due around a bank holiday anywhere in Europe – a similar delay popped up on the Thursday before the June bank holiday, according to a Government department source.TheJournal.ie also contacted Government Information and a spokesperson said they were investigating where the process had broken down.One of the departments whose payroll was affected by the delay is the Department of Education. A spokesperson there told TheJournal.ie:Salaries due for payment on 31 July 2014 have not transferred to the bank accounts of primary teachers, special needs assistants and other non-teaching staff paid on payrolls operated by the Department.In addition pensions due for payment on 31 July 2014 have not transferred to the bank accounts of retired teachers and non-teaching staff paid on payrolls operated by the Department.The Department has been advised by Bank of Ireland that on Wednesday, 30 July 2014 the bank experienced a technical issue which resulted in some customer files being processed a day late. Bank of Ireland disperse all salary and pension payments to all other financial institutions on behalf of the Department.Therefore, all salary and pension payments that were due to be credited to all accounts today – 31 July 2014 are expected to be credited first thing tomorrow morning – 1 August 2014.
Not sure if this will hold up in divorce court, but a suspicious husband has claimed that he caught his wife cheating using the new (well at least to iOS users, Android peeps have had this since day 1) Find my Friends (FMF) app that works with the iPhone 4S.Much like Latitiude on the Android platform, FMF allows users to find their friends using the GPS location generated by their iPhones. The man in question gave his wife an iPhone 4S as a surprise, then used it to track where she was.According to texts he received from his wife, she claimed to be in the meat packing district of New York, but FMF had her pegged in the Upper East Side, the total opposite direction. The husband claims that this confirmed some suspicions about his spouse cheating with someone uptown. The husband posted all this to the MacRumors forum, so the story cannot be totally confirmed, but it is an illustration of how much info mobile devices can give out.There have been many stories talking about how people have tracked victims down using the geotag in a picture or a text, or how houses have been robbed when someone has posted to Facebook that they have gone out for the day and their address is in their public profile.Information privacy is already a huge issue, and with social networking expanding the electronic umbrella over your life, steps need to be taken to ensure that personal info is not getting into the wrong hands.FMF has some settings inside of it like Latitude that allows you to give only a city-level location to a friend. Meaning if you are in Boston, they will see that you are in the general vicinity of the city, not your exact location. There is also a cool addition that is specific to the iPhone that allows users to share their location for a one time event, meaning that you can give someone your location for a set amount of time, which is pretty handy.It will be interesting to see if the husband in this story will post any outcomes or results. Until then, make sure you know what you are sharing!More at MacRumors forums, via Business Insider
The Green Star Program plans to begin removing junk like these old vehicles in the Dillingham landfill that’s accumulating in villages and other small communities around Alaska. Unlike Dillingham, the logistics of removing junk from remote villages are much more difficult, requiring transport first by barge and, often, transfer to trucks, which then take loads to recycling brokers in Fairbanks or Anchorage. (Photo: KDLG)A network of partnerships between nonprofit organizations, government agencies and private-sector recycling companies is planning to step up efforts to clean up junk and electronic waste that’s been accumulating for decades in remote communities around Alaska. The partnerships are racing to clean up as much of the stuff as possible by 2020, when federal funding for the projects is scheduled to run out.Listen nowPretty much every community in Alaska struggles to get rid of junk like worn-out cars, appliances and electronics, most of which contain hazardous substances that can harm human health. But the problem is especially acute in remote communities located far off the road system, where the stuff accumulates because it’s prohibitively expensive to remove.“That’s where the struggle is, because from there we really need to take out the material – stuff that’s legacy waste from years ago,” Doug Huntman said. He directs the Green Star Program, an effort supported by Anchorage-based Alaska Forum. “But the transportation costs are just so expensive. It’s very difficult to do that.”Huntman said during a break in the forum’s environmental conference last week that members of his organization and its partners plan to find out exactly how expensive and difficult that is when they visit those communities this summer to plan cleanups next year.“We’re going out to the communities on the middle Kuskokwim – which is a tough area in the state – to try and remove that stuff,” Huntman said.Those communities include Upper and Lower Kalskag, Aniak, Chuathbaluk, Napaimute, Sleetmute, Stony River, Crooked Creek, and possibly Red Devil, Dave Cannon said. He’s the solid-waste coordinator with Aniak-based Kuskokwim River Watershed Council. The council has organized smaller cleanups along the river in recent years and is now working with Huntman to figure out how to remove junk that’s accumulated in those villages.Cannon said that includes old junk cars, “and in some villages we have white waste – things like refrigerators, freezers. But batteries, boat and automotive batteries, probably are the biggest concern that we have.”Cannon said the so-called legacy waste must be loaded onto a barge and taken to Anchorage. But first it must be drained of hazardous wastes and other such substances. It’s a logistically challenging and costly endeavor. Even more so because Cannon says it’s not known how much of the stuff is out there. And in some landfills and junkyards, it’s mixed in with other unknown substances.“There’s a myriad of drums with who knows what materials in them,” Cannon said. “There’s even things like household hazardous waste.”Cannon said hazardous substances won’t be removed during this initial cleanup. But he says organizers will list them on an inventory they’re putting together. And, where possible, they’ll store them in safe places for pickup later. But another cleanup effort that’s been under way for a couple of years now is mainly focused on removing hazardous materials from remote and rural communities, mainly along the Yukon River. It’s being done by the Solid Waste Alaska Task Force, or SWAT, a consortium of experts from three Alaska nonprofits, the state Department of Environmental Conservation and the federal Environmental Protection Agency.“Their goal and mission is to create a sustainable way to manage waste in rural communities,” Becca Brado, executive director of Green Star of Interior Alaska, said.Brado said the Fairbanks-based recycling center, not related to the Anchorage-based program, is working with SWAT to help smaller communities backhaul electronic waste, such as old computers and televisions, to recycling companies in Anchorage or even Seattle.“So Green Star is hoping to serve as a regional hub for Interior villages and communities that don’t have direct access,” Brado said.Brado said Green Star is looking for funding to launch an outreach program to promote recycling in more than 60 communities in the Yukon River watershed. She said the program is critically needed, because the region lacks adequate landfills or storage facilities. So, much of the e-waste generated in those communities is smashed or dumped outdoors. And that causes hazardous substances in the electronics to seep into the soil and groundwater. Studies show many of those substances, such as heavy metals, make their way up the food chain to the people in the region who depend on wildlife for subsistence.“With exposure to heavy metals like mercury and lead and other toxic chemicals that children, especially in children, their IQ is actually lowered,” Brado said.Lynn Zender, a member of the SWAT executive committee and head of an Anchorage environmental-consulting firm, said the chances of exposure to contaminants are even higher when materials are burned, a common practice in communities without landfills.“Those contaminants can be inhaled, and that’s quite dangers – serious,” Zender said,And Zender said there’s growing awareness on the need for better solid- and hazardous-waste disposal in villages. Brado said there’s growing urgency too, because funding for an EPA program to promote recycling in remote villages will run out in 2020.“It’s a race against the clock, really, to try to help these communities get their e-waste and other back-haul materials out by then,” Brado said.Brado said she hopes the effort will lead to a sustainable statewide back-hauling program that would help clean up villages and keep hazardous e-waste substances out of the ecosystem.
Updated at 5:14 p.m. ET House Republicans plan to vote next week on a pair of immigration bills, including one that would end the Trump administration’s practice of separating children from their parents at the Southwest border. Republican leaders released a draft version of the bill Thursday after House Speaker Paul Ryan told reporters he does not support the “zero tolerance” policy that was implemented as a result of a court decision. In the House GOP proposal released Thursday there is a provision ending the policy. The fate of that measure and another backed by a significant bloc of conservatives is uncertain, meaning the family separation policy could remain intact indefinitely.“This I do think ought to be addressed; we believe it should be addressed in immigration legislation,” Ryan said. “What’s happening at the border with the separation of parents and their children is because of a court ruling. That’s why I think legislation is necessary.”Asked about whether the White House backed either of the two House proposals on Thursday, press secretary Sarah Sanders did not directly answer. “The president’s already laid out a proposal that closes the legal loopholes and provides the resources to secure our border. If the process leads to a permanent solution, as outlined by the president, then we would support it,” Sanders said. Each immigration bill being considered next week is aimed at satisfying a different ideological wing of the Republican Party, and it is unclear whether either has the votes to pass the House. Democrats have indicated that they are solidly opposed to both proposals. Ryan has said any GOP immigration bill must address the four pillars outlined by President Trump: Legal protections for immigrants who are in the country illegally after arriving in the U.S. as children, known as DREAMersBorder securityEnding the diversity visa lotteryAdding new restrictions for family-based legal immigrationThe bill to appease conservatives would include further reductions to legal immigration and may require all employers to check the citizenship of their employees against a federal database.The other bill, which changes family policy at the border, is a compromise with moderate House Republicans who had previously threatened to force votes on their own immigration plan with Democrats. The group backed down from that effort on Tuesday after Ryan convinced members that it would be harmful for the GOP-controlled House to pass an immigration bill supported mostly by Democrats.The legislation would authorize funding for a border wall while creating a new visa category that includes DREAMers who would be eligible for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Those immigrants would get legal status to protect them while they wait in the existing citizenship queue. It would not give those immigrants special treatment or an expedited path as many moderates and Democrats have insisted. The compromise follows weeks of fighting with conservatives who have resisted any system that would create a special citizenship route for DREAMers. The new visa category would be created by ending the current visa lottery system and changing several other existing visa programs. The bill would also end per country visa limits while maintaining the current cap on visas, meaning the number of new immigrants allowed into the country would be reduced as visas are granted to DREAMers.

(PhysOrg.com) — Score some points for the green set this week! In Australia a wind-powered car has completed a roughly three-week, 3,100 mile test ride. The car, which is powered by a 8kWh lithium-ion battery, just like many electric cars currently available to consumers on the market, but this one gets its juice not from the plug, but from a mobile wind turbine. The wind turbine is supported by a 20-foot telescopic bamboo mast. The car does have a plug available for times when it is not windy out. The car, which has been aptly named the Wind Explorer, was constructed by two intrepid German adventurers: Dirk Gion and Stefan Simmerer, who over a period of about six-months. The end product, which is a carbon-emissions free vehicle, weighs a scant 440 pounds. This weight is fairly amazing when you consider that the Nissan Leaf and the Chevy Volt each weigh about 3,500 pounds. This weight becomes no surprise when you look at the vehicle, which roughly resembles a egg with two head rests sticking out of the top. The body is made of a carbon fiber mounted onto an aluminum frame. The tires used on this car come from a racing bicycle. They were chosen to reduce drag. The Wind Explorer reached a top speed of about 55 mph on this journey.

An agreement for the exchange of classified information was signed on Monday between the defence ministers of Cyprus and Serbia.Defence Minister Christoforos Fokaides and Serbia’s Defence Minister Aleksandar Vulin signed the deal in Nicosia after holding talks at the army’s general staff headquarters.Fokaides said Cyprus and Serbia had mutual bonds of respect and solidarity and referred to the help offered by the former Yugoslavia to Cyprus as part of the Non-Aligned Movement and then during the Turkish invasion.Indicative of the support was the presence of 45 Serbian soldiers in the United Nations Peacekeeping Forces in Cyprus, he said.He said Monday’s agreement was an important step in cooperation between the two countries. “We are setting the foundation to deepen relations in the defence field,” he said. “We hope this visit will open a new chapter in the two countries’ relations.”Fokaides said he had also briefed Vulin on the Cyprus issue.Speaking through an interpreter, Vulin said Serbia supported the talks process for Cyprus as it the only way forward. “And we also know that sometimes in some issues you have to succumb as it the only way to maintain peace and fight for your peoples’ just causes,” he added.The agreement signed, he said, would allow the two countries to exchange information and maintain security. The two ministries, Vulin added, were already discussing next year’s actions. Vulin was due to visit Serbia’s peacekeepers in the mixed village of Pyla before departing from the island later Monday.
