Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announces new legal framework for Indigenous people

first_imgAPTN NewsThe Liberal government is planning to implement a new legal Indigenous framework that includes building a new relationship with First Nations, Inuit and Metis.During a speech in the House of Commons Wednesday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said the goal of the framework is to lead to self-determination and the “full and meaningful” implementation of treaties and agreements.“With this framework, we have a chance to develop new tools to support the rebuilding of Indigenous communities, nations, and governments; and advance self-determination, including the inherent right of self-government,” he said.Trudeau said the framework would replace policies around comprehensive land claims and the self-government “with new and better approaches that respect the distinctions between First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples.“This will give greater confidence and certainty to everyone involved.”The Minister of Crown-Indigenous Relations will lead “national engagement activities” throughout the spring to determine the contents of the new framework. It should be introduced later this year and implemented by October 2019, the Trudeau government said.NDP MP Romeo Saganash Indigenous said there was “hope” from Trudeau’s words but Indigenous people have waiting too long for Canada to keep their promises.“We need to make sure this time it is for real,” said Saganash.NDP MP Romeo Saganash speaks in the House of Commons Wednesday.The news comes after a Saskatchewan jury delivered a not-guilty verdict in the shooting death of 22-year-old Red Pheasant First Nation member Colten Boushie.The Friday verdict spurred cross-country rallies calling for changes to the criminal justice system.Read below excerpts from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s speech Wednesday on his Liberal government’s plans for a new legislative framework for relations with Indigenous people:___“I just finished up a series of town hall visits in communities all across Canada. And everywhere I went, there was at least one person who wanted to know what our government is doing to combat racism, to help advance reconciliation, and improve the quality of life for Indigenous Peoples.“There were questions about fishing rights, and land claims, and pipeline approvals. Questions about the national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls, about clean water, and about the alarming number of Indigenous children in foster care.“These were thoughtful questions … and it was immediately clear that every time these kinds of questions were asked, the room shifted. This was, in part, a show of support for the people who stood up and asked some tough questions. But it was also a signal that these are questions that Canadians want answered.”___“One of those questions is how we, as a government, recognize and implement the rights of Indigenous Peoples. We’ve seen those questions grow in number and intensity in just this past week, as more and more Canadians come to grips with the fact that we have so much more work to do.“More work to push back against the systemic racism that is the lived reality for so many Indigenous Peoples. More work to deal with the fact that too many feel and fear that our country and its institutions will never deliver the fairness, justice, and real reconciliation that Indigenous Peoples deserve.”___“Yesterday, I had the honour of spending some time with Colten Boushie’s family. With his mom Debbie, cousin Jade, and uncle Alvin.“And through all their grief and anger and frustration, their focus was not on themselves and the tragedy they have endured, but on how we must work together to make the system and our institutions better. Better for Indigenous youth, for Indigenous families, and for all Canadians.“We have a responsibility to do better. To be better. To do our best to make sure that no family has to endure what they have gone through.“Mr. Speaker, the criminal justice system is just one place in which reforms are urgently needed.“Reforms are needed to ensure that – among other things – Indigenous Peoples might once again have confidence in a system that has failed them all too often in the past.“That is why we will bring forward broad-based, concrete reforms to the criminal justice system, including changes to how juries are selected.”___“Last year marked 35 years since Aboriginal and treaty rights were recognized and affirmed through Section 35 of the Constitution Act.“You might recall, Mr. Speaker, that the government of the day – led by my father – did not intend to include these rights at the outset.“It was the outspoken advocacy of First Nations, Inuit and Metis peoples, supported by non-Indigenous Canadians, that forced the government to reconsider.”___“You see, Mr. Speaker, the challenge – then and now – is that while Section 35 recognizes and affirms Aboriginal and treaty rights, those rights have not been implemented by our governments.The work to give life to Section 35 was supposed to be done together with First Nations, Inuit and Metis peoples. And while there has been some success, progress has not been sustained, or carried out.And so over time, it too often fell to the courts to pick up the pieces, and fill in the gaps.More precisely, instead of outright recognizing and affirming Indigenous rights – as we promised we would – Indigenous Peoples were forced to prove, time and time again, through costly and drawn-out court challenges, that their rights existed, must be recognized and implemented.“___“To truly renew the relationship between Canada and Indigenous Peoples – not just for today, but for the next 150 years – we need a comprehensive and far-reaching approach. We need a government-wide shift in how we do things.“We need to both recognize and implement Indigenous rights because the truth is, Mr. Speaker, until we get this part right, we won’t have lasting success on the concrete outcomes that we know mean so much to people.“Indigenous Peoples in Canada should be able to drink the water that comes out of their taps. They should be able go to sleep in homes that are safe, and not overcrowded. Indigenous children should be able to stay with their families and communities, where they are known and loved.“And Indigenous youth should not grow up surrounded by the things that place them at elevated risk for suicide – things like poverty, abuse and limited access to a good education and good health care.”___“All of these things demand real, positive action – action that must include the full recognition and implementation of Indigenous rights. We need to get to a place where Indigenous Peoples in Canada are in control of their own destiny, making their own decisions about their future.“And so today, I am pleased to announce that the government will develop – in full partnership with First Nations, Inuit, and Metis people – a new Recognition and Implementation of Indigenous Rights Framework that will include new ways to recognize and implement Indigenous Rights.This will include new recognition and implementation of rights legislation. Going forward, recognition of rights will guide all government relations with Indigenous Peoples.“___“Mr. Speaker, Indigenous Peoples and all Canadians are ready for change. Ready for a new relationship based on recognition, rights, respect, co-operation and partnership. With a Recognition and Implementation of Rights Framework, we can build that new relationship, together.“It won’t be easy, Mr. Speaker. Nothing worth doing ever is. But it will be worth it. It will be worth it because we will have taken more steps toward righting historical wrongs.“It will be worth it because we will have replaced apathy with action, ignorance with understanding, and conflict with respect. We will have laid the foundation for real and lasting change – the kind of change that can only come when we fully recognize and implement Indigenous rights.”-with files from The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Closing Bell TSX adds to losses on central bank concerns flagging Chinese

TORONTO — The Toronto stock market piled on more losses Monday as traders continued to sell off risky assets like equities and commodities amid signs that the U.S. Federal Reserve is getting ready to cut back on stimulus and more worry about China’s economic rebound.Here are the closing numbersTSX — 11,836.86 -158.80 -1.32%S&P 500 — 1,573.09 -19.34 -1.21%Dow — 14,659.56 -139.84 0.94%Nasdaq — 3,320.76 -36.49 -1.09%The S&P/TSX composite index closed off the worst levels of the session, coming back from a 237-point plunge to finish down 158.8 points at 11,836.86. The loss came on top of a slide of 192 points or 1.57% last week.The Canadian dollar continued to feel the pressure of a rising greenback but the currency was well off sessions lows as strength in the greenback moderated mid-afternoon and oil prices rose sharply. The loonie closed down 0.27 of a cent to 95.37 cents US, after earlier falling as low as 94.75 cents US, its lowest level since early October 2011.U.S. indexes also finished in the red but also well off session lows with the Dow Jones industrials closing down 139.84 points at 14,659.56 on top of a 1.8% slide last week. The Nasdaq composite index gave back 36.49 points to 3,320.76 and the S&P 500 index lost 19.34 points to 1,573.09.Markets started to nose-dive last Wednesday after Fed chairman Ben Bernanke signalled that the U.S. central bank feels economic data has improved to a point where it could start to wind up its bond buying program this year and wrap it up by the middle of next year.Central banks have kept interest rates low by various means, including the Fed’s bond buying program, to stimulate the economy — providing a major boost to U.S. stock markets. For example, the Dow is still up 10% year to date.“(Bernanke) actually picked up his forecast for economic growth, (and) because of that he is saying he may actually be able to remove or lessen the stimulus,” said Allan Small, senior adviser at DWM Securities.“And you would think that would be a positive.”China also pressured markets as the government allowed commercial lending rates to soar in a move analysts said was aimed at curbing a booming underground lending industry.Analysts say the spike late Thursday in the country’s interbank lending rate to over 13% was part of an effort to trim off-balance-sheet lending that could threaten the financial stability of the world’s second-largest economy.But markets feared the move could also hurt economic growth. China’s major state-owned banks are unwilling to lend to any but their biggest clients, so the vast majority of smaller businesses must rely on informal lending.Mainland China’s Shanghai Composite Index plummeted five% to a four-year low.Indications that the Fed will ease up on its US$85 billion of bond purchases each month continued to send the U.S. dollar and bond yields higher. The benchmark 10-year Treasury stood at 2.55% late Monday afternoon, off highs of over 2.636% earlier in the morning. But that is still up from 2.25% prior to Bernanke’s news conference last Wednesday and from 1.6% in early May.“When you see the 10-year bond go from 1.6% to 2.6%, that’s a huge phenomenon that doesn’t happen that quickly (normally) and I think that is a major thing that is spooking everyone,” Small said.“You’re looking at interest rates on the rise.”The stronger greenback also helped depress commodity prices and raise concerns about demand. That is because a stronger greenback makes it more expensive for holders of other currencies to buy oil and metals, which are dollar-denominated.The base metals sector led declines, down 6.38% as July copper on the New York Mercantile Exchange moved closer to the US$3 level, down another seven cents to US$3.02 a pound. Teck Resources (TSX:TCK.B) shed $1.55 to C$21.22 while First Quantum Minerals (TSX:FM) fell $1.33 to $14.29.Gold prices also continued to fall, down $14.90 to US$1,277.10 an ounce, pushing the gold sector down about 4.25%. Bullion fell to three-year lows last week in the wake of the indication by the Fed of lower bond purchases. Goldcorp Inc. (TSX:G) fell 96 cents to C$24.64.Elsewhere in the gold sector, slumping gold prices have resulted in Barrick Gold Corp. (TSX:ABX) intensifying its downsizing plan. The miner is eliminating about 100 jobs or almost a third of its corporate staff at its headquarters in Toronto and other offices. Barrick is also dealing with operational and regulatory issues at some of its mines and projects. Barrick shares fell 43 cents to $17.28.Meanwhile, Goldman Sachs cut its outlook on the metal for 2013 and 2014, citing growing price risks from an improving U.S. economic picture. The bank now expects gold to end this year at $1,300 an ounce, down 9.4% on its previous forecast, and at $1,050 an ounce by the end of 2014, down 17.3% on its earlier outlook.The energy sector fell 1.23% while the August crude contract clawed back some of last week’s four% slide to advance $1.49 to US$95.18 a barrel. Cenovus Energy (TSX:CVE) declined 50 cents to C$29.08.Traders also looking at what damage heavy rains and flooding will have on Alberta’s energy business.Enbridge Inc. (TSX:ENB) is working to contain and clean up a weekend spill of synthetic crude into a wetland area and small lake in northern Alberta. Enbridge also shut other pipelines in the area as a precaution, including the Athabasca and Waupisoo pipelines, as the province grapples with major flooding, including in the city of Calgary where Enbridge has its head office.Enbridge said in its initial assessment that unusually heavy rains may have resulted in a ground movement that affected the pipeline, which is part of its Athabasca network. Its shares were down 87 cents to $42.64.The industrials group fell 1.22% as Canadian Pacific Railway (TSX:CP) gave back $1.92 to $122.18.Rising U.S. bond yields also put pressure on interest sensitive stocks on the TSX. In the utilities sector, Just Energy Group (TSX:JE) fell 25 cents to $6.40. Telecoms also fell with BCE Inc.

Reports Stampeders great and businessman John Forzani on life support

by The Canadian Press Posted Oct 30, 2014 8:42 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Reports: Stampeders great and businessman John Forzani on life support CALGARY – Stampeders great and prominent Calgary businessman John Forzani was put on life support in a California hospital on Thursday according to several media reports.Family members have told a number of Calgary-based media outlets that the 67 year old had a heart attack in his sleep and was taken to Eisenhower Medical Center in Palm Springs.Tom Forzani says doctors have told them his brother is unlikely to recover.John was an offensive lineman for six years with the Stampeders in the 1970s, where he played alongside his brothers Tom and Joe.After he retired from football, John Forzani built a chain of successful sporting goods stores.That chain, FGL Sports, was sold to Canadian Tire in 2011.John established Calgary’s annual Mother’s Day Run and Walk in 1977, a fundraising event which continues to this day. In 2000, the Forzani Foundation was established to assist charities including Canadian amateur athletics. read more

Ohio State wrestlers Martin Snyder win national championships Buckeyes finish third

OSU coach Tom Ryan congratulates freshman Myles Martin on a quarterfinals win at the NCAA championships at Madison Square Garden.Credit: Courtesy of Ben Solomon | OSU AthleticsNEW YORK CITY — Ohio State wrestling coach Tom Ryan was disappointed in the results his team produced in the second day of the NCAA tournament. After a poor showing that resulted in the Buckeyes dropping three of five matches on Friday, OSU bounced back for an undefeated final day to finish third overall.On top of the undefeated third showing on Saturday, the Scarlet and Gray captured 174- and 285-pound individual titles.Session VA trio of matches started the morning session for the NCAA tournament, and redshirt sophomore Nate Tomasello was on the center mat to battle for a chance at third place. And even after a shocking and devastating loss the day prior, the Parma, Ohio, native delivered a stellar performance. Tomasello seemed to return to his regular form, which earned him more than 40 straight victories prior to his quarterfinal defeat. Redshirt sophomore Bo Jordan turned his tournament around as well, picking up an 8-2 decision win over David McFadden of Virginia Tech. The runner-up at 165 pounds from the Big Ten tournament fought off a takedown early and spun around his opponent for two points, causing Ryan to leap from his chair in excitement. A short rest later, Tomasello returned to the mat to battle for third against David Terao of American University. Terao was one of two No. 15 seed wrestlers to reach the semifinals.The bout did not disappoint, as it caused the crowd at Madison Square Garden to erupt as the clock ticked down. It took everything Tomasello had to put Terao away with a 5-3 decision. The All-American has now medaled both times he has participated in the NCAA tournament. Not to be outmatched by his teammate, Jordan found a way to pull out a third-place finish as well. His opponent, Daniel Lewis of Missouri, jumped out to an early lead with an escape and takedown.Jordan tied things midway through the second and never lost the advantage. This is the second year the former four-time high school state champion took home the third place hardware. Session VIFireworks were in store for the Buckeyes in the ending session of the tournament. Both freshman Myles Martin and sophomore Kyle Snyder put out top-tier performances to earn championships.After lifting his redshirt early in the season, Martin proved how smart of a move it was.Crediting Ryan for much of his success this year, the newly crowned 174-pound champion smiled when speaking about his mentor.“It meant so much to me; I love that guy,” Martin said. “In the beginning of the season we butted heads about the whole redshirt, he cares so much about me and the team and he understands where I come (from): a small town in (Penns Grove, New Jersey).”Ryan and Martin embraced as the freshman leapt from the mat to find his loved ones. The OSU coach was clearly ecstatic about the win.“Around 400 men in the history of the world have won those (titles),” Ryan said. “To get one out of high school as a freshman the way he did against a competitor like that is incredible.”The Scarlet and Gray had one more man to wrestle in the last match of the tournament, and it was none other than the youngest world champion ever at 97 kilograms.Against an opponent in Nick Gwiazdowski of North Carolina State who came in with an 88-match win streak, Snyder showed the packed Madison Square Garden why he earned his way to the match after wrestling in just 10 heavyweight bouts prior.In sudden victory, Snyder locked in a takedown to beat the two-time NCAA champion. According to the sophomore, he knew exactly when to strike.“I kind of know where guys are going to float out when I do that setup,” Snyder said. “I knew where his foot was going to be, and I hit it as his foot was hitting the mat.”OSU knocked Iowa out of the top three and earned its second consecutive top three finish after winning it all last year.Though the 2015-16 season is now complete, the preparation for next season and, for wrestlers like Snyder, the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, is set to begin as soon as possible. read more

Michael Sams Father Denies Critical Comments About His Son

The father of college football star Michael Sam said he was “terribly misquoted” by The New York Times in a recent article about the reaction to his son’s announcement that he is gay.“I did not say anything about my grandkids,” the Galveston Daily News quoted him as saying.Michael Sam Sr. told the paper he doesn’t want people to think he has an issue with his son’s sexual orientation.On Sunday, Michael Sam said in interviews with ESPN’s “Outside The Lines” and the Times that he is gay. Sam originally revealed the news to his Missouri teammates in August.In the Times piece this week, his father described himself as “old school” and is quoted in the newspaper as saying the idea of a gay player in the NFL bothers him, even if that person could be his own son.However, he backtracked from those comments with the Galveston Daily News, saying he never told the Times he was an old-school, “man-and-a-woman type of guy” or that he didn’t want his grandkids “raised in that kind of environment.”Sam Sr. did acknowledge much of what he told the Times was accurate, but he said some of his thoughts were taken out of context, specifically a quote about Hall of Fame defensive lineman Deacon Jones “turning over in his grave.”“I told them Deacon Jones is going to roll over in his grave because here comes my son and that he’s going to be a star in the NFL,” Sam Sr. told the Galveston Daily News.The Times, in an email to the Galveston paper, defended its reporting and said Sam Sr. was quoted “accurately and fairly.”The elder Sam also said he has had time to reflect on his relationship with his son. He said he loves his son, that he did the right thing and that he wishes he’d spent more time with him.The Times previously reported that when Sam returns to his hometown in Texas he usually stays with friends instead of his family. read more

Mens Volleyball No 7 Ohio State faces harsh road schedule with No

Ohio State then-redshirt sophomore middle blocker Jamie Wolmering (12) and then-junior setter Sanil Thomas go up for the ball in the matchup between the Buckeyes and Loyola. Credit: Ris Twigg | Former Assistant Photo EditorAfter a 2-0 start to the season, the No. 7 Ohio State men’s volleyball team will attempt to earn its first ranked victories out west against No. 5 BYU and No. 11 Stanford.Ohio State began its season with nonconference home wins against Charleston and Penn State.While BYU will begin its season with the match against the Buckeyes on Thursday, that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of emotion between these two teams coming into this match.Though the Cougars topped the Buckeyes in a five-set match this past season in Columbus, the previous two NCAA tournament matchups between these teams ended in back-to-back titles for the Buckeyes in the 2016 and 2017 national championship matches.BYU sophomore opposite hitter Gabi Garcia Fernandez will look to build on an impressive freshman campaign, in which he was ranked No. 2 and No. 3 in points per set and aces per set, respectively, in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF). In order to continue its perfect start to the season, Ohio State will need to rely on redshirt sophomore opposite hitter Jake Hanes, who currently leads the country with 5.29 kills per set and 6.14 points per set.Following the Thursday match between top 10 teams, Ohio State will face Stanford (2-0) on Saturday. The Cardinal began their season with wins against Menlo and UC Santa Cruz, and they’ll be facing off against Ball State on Thursday before taking on the Buckeyes.Ohio State has won the past three meetings against Stanford. The Cardinal are coming off a season riddled with injury in which they won just six matches.Stanford brings back sophomore opposite hitter Jaylen Jasper, who carries MPSF Offensive Player of the Week honors into the match against the Buckeyes. Jasper has a .654 hitting percentage and is averaging 4.33 kills per set through the first two matches of the season. But the Cardinal aren’t the only ones with returning top talent.Senior setter Sanil Thomas led the country with 11.28 assists per set last year, and he’ll need to play every bit like last season if the Buckeyes want to reach next week unscathed.Ohio State takes on BYU at 9 p.m. on Thursday and Stanford at 10 p.m. on Saturday. read more

Father of the Jacksons – The Controversial Legacy of Joe Jackson

first_imgWhen Joe Jackson passed away in June of last year, his death closed the book on a remarkable and controversial chapter of American music history. Described as “a green-eyed dandy who wore a pencil-thin mustache and huge diamond pinky ring” by CBS News, his real life was a combination of grit and glamor.Joseph Jackson. Photo by Georges Biard CC BY-SA 3.0Born in Arkansas, in 1928, his own musical ambitions were sidelined when he began raising a family with wife Katherine.He’d been part of a group called The Falcons, which also featured his brother, Luther. They couldn’t break through so his creativity took a back seat.AdChoices广告inRead invented by TeadsThe Jackson 5 in 1969Jackson put the beloved guitar down but still relied on his hands. He had an early shot at boxing before settling down as a crane operator and welder.Yet that burning ambition never left him and, as his family grew, he saw an opportunity to put them on the national stage.Photo of the Jackson 5 from a guest appearance on The Jim Nabors Show in 1970.The story behind the beginnings of The Jackson 5 has been mentioned in various places, notably superstar Michael’s 1988 autobiography Moonwalk. It involves Jackson Sr.’s guitar, which only he was allowed to play.According to CBS, the kids got their hands on the instrument and snapped a string. “Fearing a beating, Tito Jackson hid in fear, but when his father demanded he show what he could do with the guitar, he did — and Joe Jackson was awed. And a musical group was born.”The Jackson 5 with Hal Davis. Photo by Brownpatricks CC BY SA 4.0In addition to Michael and Tito, the Jackson act consisted of Jermaine, Jackie and Marlon. Randy joined down the line. They were the eldest sons among 10 children, though Brandon had sadly died as a baby. Joe was determined to make Michael and the gang household names.However this quest for success came at a heavy price. Tito may have feared his father’s wrath but it seemed he wasn’t the only one. A particularly cutting assessment from the Guardian says, “the discovery that his offspring had musical talent turned him from merely cold and violent into a despot.”The Jacksons in 1977When the school day was done, the brothers would rehearse for hours. Joe honed them into a formidable musical force with harsh discipline. The Guardian writes the boys were “incentivised by the fact that if they got a dance step wrong their father would order them to break a branch off a tree in their garden that he then hit them with.”The build up to Michael Jackson’s solo career was arguably a turning point, coming as it did after years of reported tension. “When Joe Jackson learned his teenage son was self-conscious about the size of his nose,” the Guardian wrote, “he took to referring to him as Big Nose, an insult that haunted him into adulthood.”Jackson performing in June 1988. Photo by Zoran Veselinovic CC-BY-SAThis, together with beatings and Joe’s reported infidelities, turned Michael against his father. “Joseph” (as Joe insisted they call him instead of Dad) was given the push by Michael in 1979.By 1983 the others flew the nest in a professional sense. Details of life behind the scenes were being splashed across the media. The private life of the Jacksons became increasingly public.Photo of Joseph Jackson in 2007.

She explained pressure had been put on her by controlling husband Jack Gordon to do so.La Toya Jackson in 2010. Photo by Truu CC BY 2.0Joe Jackson’s reputation was seriously tarnished. Though this anger toward him from his children was tempered by a respect for what he’d helped the brothers and sister Janet achieve.Despite writing about the abuse in the 2011 book You Are Not Alone, Jermaine Jackson defended Joe. “In his telling,” the Guardian summarizes, “Joe’s behaviour was a way to keep the brothers in line and off the streets.Jermaine Jackson. Photo by Solid State Survivor CC BY SA 3.0As he points out, life in their corner of Gary, Indiana, was no picnic. “Gang violence was endemic, but the brothers didn’t have the time or the wherewithal to get involved: they were always rehearsing and they were too scared of their father.” As well as keeping them safe from the exploitative side of the industry, Joe and Katherine didn’t lean on their children financially which was appreciated.Related Video: How a Prince Song Resulted in the ‘Parental Advisory’ StickerUltimately Michael sought answers from a traumatic upbringing. Quoted by CBS he remarked, “I don’t know him, and that’s sad for a son who hungers to understand his own father. He’s still a mystery to me and may always be one.”Halima Rashid, Jermaine Jackson, Joseph Jackson & Taj Jackson in 2007.Perhaps Joe was dealing with his own demons. Rolling Stone mentioned he “suffered his own physical abuse from both parents and teachers.”He was certainly there for the kids in later years. He supported Michael in court when he was accused of child abuse and there was a degree of reconciliation. But when Michael passed away in 2009 Joe wasn’t a beneficiary of the will, something he battled to rectify.Jackson performing in 1988 Photo by : Gaston S/Kpo! 09 CC BY-SA 3.0He went on to promote young talent through a boot camp, one of the aims of which was to encourage vulgarity-free lyrics for hip hop artists.

It’s impossible to know what Michael Jackson would have said about his passing.Michael Jackson (1958 – 2009) performs the dance from ‘Thriller’, circa 1984. Photo by Dave Hogan/Hulton Archive/Getty ImagesHis estate released the following statement, quoted in Rolling Stone: “Joe was a strong man who acknowledged his own imperfections and heroically delivered his sons and daughters from the steel mills of Gary, Indiana to worldwide pop superstardom. Mr. Jackson’s contributions to the history of music are enormous.”While this arguably doesn’t offer a rounded view of Joe Jackson the man, it at least presents a significant part of his personality. Rolling Stone also provides the following, from an interview he gave to Soul magazine in 1970.“We liked being together and singing together…” he said. “In our neighborhood, lots of children got into trouble — some into bad trouble. I didn’t want that kind of life for my kids.”Read another story from us: Michael Jackson and why the press called him Wacko JackoA fitting reminder that whether Joe Jackson is viewed as a hero, a monster, or somewhere in between, he was at his heart a father.last_img read more

Author finds community with book on young daughter

Jayson’s book, “Once More We Saw Stars,” is a non-fiction narrative of grief and acceptance following the sudden death of their 2-year-old daughter, Greta. (AP Photo/Bebeto Matthews) NEW YORK — Jayson and Stacy Greene speak of grief matter-of-factly and calmly, as it’s something they’ve come to know intimately since the tragic death of their 2-year-old daughter, Greta, in 2015.“I wouldn’t say that the work is complete because I don’t think it ever is when you’re grieving,” Stacy Greene said.Greta was sitting outside on a bench with her grandmother in New York’s Upper West Side when she was struck by a falling piece of a windowsill. She was rushed to the emergency room where she died.As an editor at online music magazine Pitchfork, writing was a natural outlet for Jayson Greene. “I always wanted to write a book,” he said, but he didn’t know the first one would be so personal. What started as journal entries turned into something more six months after Greta’s death.“Once More We Saw Stars” is a memoir about the aftermath of their daughter’s death and the experience of coping with grief.While the death of a young child is a dark and difficult journey to take a reader on, Greene says it was important to him that the reader felt safe.“If I’m going to write a book about this, I need it to be bearable and readable without being false or untrue in some way,” he said.He took inspiration from Paul Kalanithi’s “When Breath Becomes Air” and Joan Didion’s “The Year of Magical Thinking” for their ability to provide a “window” into the world of death and “tell the truth without sort of howling it at you.”“I think that there were books I opened up where I didn’t feel safe with the narrator,” Greene said. “I’m stepping into this person’s wound rather than into their story, and it felt dangerous in a way that I was careful to avoid.”Since the book’s publication in May, the couple have been moved by the outpouring of support from readers.“We’ve heard from lots of people, particularly people who’ve lost children, who’ve said, ‘Thank you for articulating what it was that I was feeling,’ and that’s an incredible thing,” Greene said.He said the book has also provided them with a sense of community.“I feel like the book has been sort of this beautiful extension where people have reached out that are this extended part of this community that we would have never otherwise reached,” Stacy Greene said. “I’ve been grateful that we’ve had these connections to these readers who are fellow bereaved people or people who are in some way connected to the grief that we experienced.”One person they heard from after the book release was a particular surprise— the parent of a child who received one of Greta’s organs.“Because our story was in the news, they were very aware that they were receiving one of Greta’s organs and the person actually reached out to us to let us know that their child was alive because of Greta,” Stacy Greene said.“That was such a closed circle in a way that we never would have imagined,” Jayson Greene said.Since the book’s publication, they say their lives have changed, but in many ways, they haven’t. On the night of the book release, their 3-year-old son, Harrison, threw a temper tantrum.“Before we’re leaving like, you know, again, it’s this book about our family and the beauty and Harrison just throws the world’s biggest tantrum,” Greene says with a laugh. “And Stacy’s putting on makeup and she looks, and he’s screaming, and she’s like, ‘Cherish every moment.’”The tantrum ended, but Greene says that life is “just as real as it was before.”They still have to juggle with school out for the summer, and they still make “the same mistakes,” like letting Harrison stay up too late.But what has changed is the way they talk about Greta.“Before the book published, what we had to tell people about Greta was something so awful: Our daughter died. She died meaninglessly and violently in an accident. She was 2,” Greene said. “And now what I say is, ‘I wrote a book about my daughter. It’s called ‘Once More We Saw Stars.’”If readers of his memoir take away anything, he hopes that it is this: “It’s possible to live your life, not just survive, but to live. It was possible for us, it is possible.”Ragan Clark, The Associated Press by Ragan Clark, The Associated Press Posted Jul 24, 2019 10:54 am PDTlast_img read more

any sort” As per Lodha Committee recommendation the standing committee’s role is “identify and invite all eligible ex-cricketers to be members to open bank accounts receive funds from the BCCI conduct

interest of brands in getting associated with sports In the last few years the market has seen an exponential rise in sports sponsorship where brands have harnessed sports as successful medium for communication about the brands One such brand which has jumped on the sporting bandwagon is home-grown apparel brand Spykar The denim major decided to engage with the Indian Premier League by investing Rs 20 crore on a two-season sponsorship deal with new franchise Rising Pune Supergiants last year Firstpost sat down with Sanjay Vakharia COO Spykar Lifestyle Pvt Ltd to understand why sport

to hover around 8 square metres or just over 86 square feet While the financial capital recently gained nearly 15 square kilometres through natural sedimentation along its eastern coast the latest data regarding existing land use indicates that the living space for people remains a tight squeeze The new data collected by officials as part of the ongoing revision of the city’s Development Plan has found that the 124 crore population collectively occupies just 1032709 hectare or 10328 square kilometres of the city’s land area In other words there are over 12 lakh people per square kilometre
