New Medical Equipment to Improve Health Care Wait Times

first_imgCancer care, and patient care for pregnant mothers and babies,will improve thanks to millions of dollars in new supportannounced today, Nov. 14, by the Nova Scotia government. Premier John Hamm committed $1.3 million to the IWK Health Centreand $5.8 million to Capital Health toward getting Nova Scotianstests, treatment and care faster. “Giving doctors, nurses, and other health professionals theequipment they need is a critical part of our plan to reduce waitlists,” said Premier Hamm. “The new pieces will allow our healthprofessionals to do more, and will improve their ability to treatpatients.” The IWK will benefit from new diagnostic ultrasound and X-rayequipment. Capital Health will receive funding for new equipmentto treat cancer patients, along with new surgical imagingequipment, to be located at the QEII Health Sciences Centre. The new equipment will be paid for from the $15 million availablethis year from the federal contribution to Nova Scotia for new orreplacement diagnostic medical equipment. Capital Health’s new system will allow for precise tailoring ofradiation doses, and will reduce waiting times by accommodatingan additional 500 patients per year. Capital Health will alsoreceive an image-guided surgery system, which will usecomputerized integration of medical imaging to plan and carry outprecise, complex surgeries at a greater rate — between 150 and200 more than the previous equipment, per year. “The new equipment will improve access to radiation therapyservices to patients of Nova Scotia,” said Capital Health CEO DonFord. “The replacement simulator is new technology which willprovide greater flexibility and increased efficiency in treatmentplanning. The additional high-energy linear accelerator willincrease our capacity to provide more timely access to radiationtherapy for our patients.” For health-care professionals and patients at the IWK, the newultrasound equipment will improve picture quality, and allow fora more detailed diagnosis. The new equipment will perform morethan 12,000 exams a year on mothers and babies. “The IWK is always looking for new ways to reduce wait times andprovide quality care to our patients,” said Dr. Alex Gillis,president and CEO of the IWK Health Centre. “This new equipmentwill give our staff the tools they need to provide more timelydiagnoses to the women and children we serve.” Halifax-area hospitals and nursing homes will also receive$185,000 to purchase equipment such as patient lifts and specialtubs that will provide added comfort to patients and easeworkload for nurses. Funding will also be provided to expand atechnology network that will allow for the digital transfer of X-rays, CAT scans and other diagnostic images among hospitalsacross the province. This technology, called picture archivingcommunications system (PACS), will mean better informationsharing and faster diagnosis. Increasing access to MRIs is another important part of theprovince’s wait list plan. Consultation is now getting underwayto determine the best use of existing MRIs, as well as whereadditional MRIs may be needed. The consultations will alsodetermine what kind of MRIs work best and how the greatest numberof patients can access them. This work will guide spendingdecisions for medical equipment funding in the next two years. In February 2003, the First Ministers’ Accord on Health CareRenewal was released. The accord included a commitment for NovaScotia of $45 million over three years — $15 million each year,beginning in 2003-04 — for diagnostic medical equipment. The district health authorities will announce next week theallocation of the remaining funding for this year.last_img read more

Sentencing for second teen involved in Serena McKay death leaves family disappointed

first_imgSerena’s mother Delores Daniels says justice wasn’t served (Brittany Hobson/APTN)Brittany HobsonAPTN NewsEmotions ran high in a Winnipeg courtroom after a judge handed down a youth sentence to one of the teens involved in the beating death of 19-year-old Serena McKay on Sagkeeng First Nation in April 2017.Judge Lindy Choy sentenced the 17-year-old to two years in secure custody with one year under conditional supervision.The teen girl, who was 16 at the time, cannot be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.She pleaded guilty to manslaughter in January.Crown attorney Jennifer Comack was seeking an adult sentence of seven years, while the defense was asking for the maximum youth sentence of three years.McKay’s body was found outside a home on Sagkeeng, located approximately 120 km north of Winnipeg, on April 23, 2017.She was attending the high school at the time and living in a nearby community.Court had previously heard McKay was at a house party with six others when a fight broke out.The brutal beating was filmed and posted to social media.Both the younger teen and a second girl, who was 17 at the time, were arrested and taken into custody in April 2017.The younger teen will not receive credit for time served.According to the autopsy, McKay found 67 injuries to her body. A coroner determined she likely died of hypothermia after she was unable to seek help due to injuries and intoxication.As Choy read her decision she called the attack “horrific” and condemned the teen for her involvement.“There is a young woman gone from this earth because of your cruelty,” Choy told the courtroom. “You left her outside alone to die.”The judge said while the teen “showed zero regard” for McKay’s life she didn’t believe the teen was exhibiting adult behaviour. The judge said she believed the teen had the “moral capacity of an adolescent.”After the judge read her decision a handful of McKay’s relatives became emotional.Some shouted “justice isn’t served” while sheriffs rushed the teen out of the courtroom.Outside the courtroom, Serena McKay’s mother expressed disappointment in the outcome.“I just have no faith anymore in the system,” Delores Daniels told reporters.“They did us wrong today and they continue to do us wrong with everything that happened with this whole case.”During the sentencing hearing she told the court she had “lost her best friend.”On Thursday, Daniels said she was still struggling to come to terms with losing her only daughter.“She was a beautiful young girl who had a full life ahead of her,” she said. “She was a friend to everybody that she encountered, and I just don’t see why they did this to her.”The older teen, who is now 18, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.She was sentenced as a youth in June.Justice Rocky Pollack sentenced the teen to 40 months in custody and 23 months under supervision.Following Thursday’s decision Daniels is calling for an overhaul to the justice system.“I hope that [this] brings some type of action or something against this whole system.”Bhobson@aptn.calast_img read more

Quebecor to scramble TVA Sports signal to Bell subscribers for playoff hockey

Companies in this story: (TSX:QBR.B, TSX:BCE)The Canadian Press MONTREAL — Quebecor says it will follow through with its threat to scramble the signal of its TVA Sports channel for television subscribers of its competitor, Bell.The action will start Wednesday night when National Hockey League playoff games begin to be televised by the exclusive French-language broadcaster.This means that in order to watch hockey games, Bell TV’s French-language customers would have to subscribe to Sportsnet, owned by Rogers Media, which holds the exclusive English rights to broadcast the playoffs in Canada.They can also watch CBC for some playoff matches, including those involving the three Canadian teams — the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Winnipeg Jets and the Calgary Flames — or move to another provider, including Videotron, another Quebecor subsidiary.Bell said Monday that at its request, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission directed Quebecor to continue to offer the TVA Sports channel to Bell TV and its customers.According to Bell, the action stems from a pricing dispute with Quebecor wanting to charge Bell more to access TVA Sports than Quebecor and Videotron are willing to pay for Bell Media’s RDS sports network. read more

Judge orders Volkswagen to pay 21B in classaction suit over emissions scandal

TORONTO – Members of a Canadian class-action lawsuit against Volkswagen can submit claims for reimbursement starting on Friday after an Ontario court approved a $2.1-billion settlement plan.The 105,000 people who purchased or leased certain Volkswagen or Audi vehicles with two-litre diesel engines that were caught up in an emissions cheating scandal will each receive a payment between $5,100 and $8,000, wrote Superior Court Justice Edward Belobaba in his judgment Wednesday.Many will also have the choice either to return their vehicle at the buy-back price as of mid-September 2015 before the so-called defeat device was made public or keep their car and receive an emissions modification that is approved by government regulators, he wrote.“(The settlement) does its best to respond to people who are in different situations and have different concerns,” said Charles Wright, a partner at Siskinds law firm in London, Ont., and one of the lead lawyers in the case.For the people who love their cars, it offers the ability to keep them, while those who want to get rid of them as soon as possible can do so, he said.Meanwhile the damages payment can cover any costs car owners incurred as a result of the scandal, Wright said. For example, someone who purchased a roof rack that fits a Volkswagen vehicle they intend to return can buy a new roof rack for their new vehicle with the money.There is the chance that further litigation in this case will happen.If emissions modifications for any of the vehicles are not approved and implemented around summer 2018, and the owner chooses not to return their vehicle, Wright said, they can choose to continue litigation. If enough such owners come forward, the court may choose to hear the case again as a class-action suit, he said.Volkswagen has provided a fix for one generation of the vehicles, and a fix for the other two generations is being assessed for approval by U.S. regulatory authorities, he said.Volkswagen Group said in a statement last week, after two provincial courts approved the settlement agreement, that the settlement is not an admission of its liability.Volkswagen Canada noted in an email that Quebec and Ontario courts granted approval of the nationwide settlement agreement on April 21 and that further information was available on the settlement website.Follow @AleksSagan on Twitter. by Aleksandra Sagan, The Canadian Press Posted Apr 27, 2017 10:25 am MDT Last Updated Apr 27, 2017 at 4:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Judge orders Volkswagen to pay $2.1B in class-action suit over emissions scandal read more

Haiti UN determined to support authorities in strengthening rule of law

Ms. Keita, who took up her post last September, traveled to Haiti from 5 to 9 February to support the efforts of the new UN Mission for the Support of Justice in Haiti (MINUJUSTH), to discuss the Mission’s mandate with the Haitian Government and other partners, and to ensure that human rights are at the heart of the country’s sustainable development agenda.Established in October 2017, MINUJUSTH succeeded a previous UN peacekeeping mission, known as MINUSTAH, with a smaller mandate from the Security Council, focused on helping the Haitian Government strengthen its rule-of-law institutions.In an interview with UN News, Ms. Keita said that the Security Council has given the Mission a brief two-year timeframe, starting in April 2018, to help Haiti overcome “systemic problems” and “to ensure that fundamental progress is taking place in the justice sector, the judiciary, security and human rights.” She added that all interlocutors in Haiti agreed that the judiciary was the weakest of the three branches of Government.Her visit focused mainly on discussing the milestones, or benchmarks, that will make it possible to measure the gradual assumption of responsibilities by the Haitian authorities of those critical rule-of-law issues, to allow the Security Council to withdraw the peacekeeping presence all together by Spring 2020. MINUJUSTH/Leonora BaumannUN Assistant Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations Bintou Keita (2nd from left) meets with President Jovenel Moïse of Haiti in Port-au-Prince. The Assistant Secretary-General also made a field visit to Jeremie, in the south-west of the country, to see and hear for herself the realities on the ground, where MINUJUSTH mobile teams engage with the local communities to hear how the justice system works in practice. She described her “emotional” visit to a civilian prison, where she saw the living conditions of the prisoners, the majority of whom are on pre-trial detention.“The overall system is really showing the symptoms of a sick system and dysfunctional system … It’s been years since the diagnosis was made. What we need now is a real political will to address the issues that will allow to deliver real change and create trust between the people and the justice system,” she said.The next steps for MINUJUSTH and Haiti, as Ms. Keita said in her joint statement on 9 February with President Jovenel Moïse, is to move forward in partnership and seize the opportunity of the Mission’s presence over the next two years to consolidate gains and to redouble efforts to achieve ambitious but realistic common goals, thus preparing the exit strategy for the peacekeeping operation.  Efforts will focus on the fight against impunity and corruption, on improvements to the judicial system, and on measures in the field of preventive detention.According to Ms. Keita, strengthening the institutions of the rule of law is a long-term goal. In the short term, however, the goal is to “show visible results” so that people can regain confidence in the will of the authorities “to do things with the support of the international community.” read more

He died following a boat mishap on the river on Saturday.Based on information received, three other persons were travelling in the boat at the time of the incident. It was windy, and the waters were rougher than usual, thus the boat, carrying the four individuals to another location, capsized.Police are working on the theory that, in falling into the water, Gishard may have hit his head, lost consciousness and consequently drowned. The other persons in the boat were reportedly able to make it to shore safely.DEAD Orson GishardPolice Commander Ravindranauth Budhram has said the 36-year-old Gishard was among four passengers in the boat when it capsized while crossing the Kaburi Creek in the Mazaruni River, but the incident is being investigated by the Police in ‘F’ Division.Gishard’s death comes one day after another boat capsized in the Upper Cuyuni River on Friday last. Fortunately, there were no casualties in that mishap, since all the passengers were able to make it back into the boat safely.Gishard’s sister, Mellisa (only name given), said the father of four had been working with Brian & Ingrid Fung Mining and Trucking Service as a serviceman for only two months, and was making his way into the Issano mining district for work when tragedy struck.“We were told that he was making his way up to the Issano area when the boat capsize; and they weren’t finding a couple of them, but then, around 06:30 hrs, they call us and said that they found his body and the others was safe,” she related.She described her brother as a good swimmer and said she is unaware of all the circumstances involved in his demise, but it is reported that Gishard may have hit his head when the vessel capsized and may have lost consciousness and drowned.Mellisa told that not a lot of information has been afforded the family, and everything is being channelled through her brother’s employers. Efforts made by this publication to elicit a comment from the management of Brian & Ingrid Fung Mining and Trucking Service have been unsuccessful.Gishard has been described as a jovial person with a kind heart. He had once been a member of the GDF Air Corps, and leaves to mourn his four children along with his parents and siblings. The investigations into his death are ongoing. read more

Married man beat woman to death after she threatened to reveal affair

first_img Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Wednesday 8 Mar 2017, 5:18 PM AFTER A WOMAN threatened to reveal all about a sexual encounter she had with a married man, he beat her to death with a hammer, a prosecution barrister told a jury at the Central Criminal Court today.Roy Webster (40) from Ashbree, Ashford, Co Wicklow has pleaded not guilty to murder but guilty to the manslaughter of Anne Shortall (47) on 3 April, 2015 at The Murrough, Co Wicklow.The plea was not accepted by the State.Opening the trial today, Paul Greene SC said the prosecution’s case is that Webster and the deceased had a “sexual encounter” after meeting at a pub on 22 December 2014.He said that seemed to be the end of it until some time later Shortall started trying to contact the accused by phone and through a mutual friend on Facebook.When she made contact with the accused she told him she was pregnant and wanted money for an abortion.Webster was married at the time and his second child had recently been born. He asked Shortall for proof that she was pregnant, and that he was responsible.Greene said Shortall was in debt. She owed a couple of thousand euro to her landlord and a similar amount in electricity bills.On 3 April, 2015, Greene said Webster and Shortall met in Wicklow Town and were seen sitting in his van.He said the jury will hear that there was a dispute about whether he would give her money and she threatened to “reveal all” about their earlier encounter.He hit her on the head with a hammer and drove her back to his work premises with her hands secured by duct tape.A pathologist’s report would show that she received nine blows to the head, he said.Her body remained at Webster’s workshop until 7 April when he told gardaí her whereabouts.When she went missing on 3 April efforts were made to find her and Webster was interviewed by gardaí on 6 April, having spent the weekend with her body at his work premises.He did not reveal his part in her death but by the following day gardaí had become suspicious and spoke to him again.It was then that he revealed the location of her body, which was discovered behind wood panels in his workshop.Webster’s barrister Brendan Grehan SC told the jury that his client accepts that he met Shortall by arrangement and that he assaulted her and is responsible for her death.He also admits tying her hands with tape and lying to the gardaí in his initial statement.Greene further explained to the jury that their role in the trial is to decide if Mr Webster is guilty of murder or manslaughter.He said the prosecution intends to prove beyond reasonable doubt that he is guilty of murder.Jamie Shortt took the stand this afternoon and told Mr Greene that he was out with the accused and some other men on December 20.They went for a couple of pints at a pub known as the Bridge before moving on to The Forge.It was a busy pub, he said, and he remembers seeing Mr Webster speaking to a woman for much of the night. He was still speaking to her when Mr Shortt left.A few days later he said he saw Mr Webster again and they spoke about that night. He said Mr Webster told him he had gone to a house party, slept on a couch and went home the next day.Speaking to defence counsel Brendan Grehan SC he said that Mr Webster always “came across as okay” and agreed that he had previously described him as “one hundred percent genuine”.The trial continues tomorrow in front of Justice Patrick McCarthy and a jury of seven women and five men.Comments have been closed as this case is before the courts.Read: Man convicted of murdering friend who was bludgeoned to death with a rockRead: ‘It was a gruesome scene’: Teenager arrested for allegedly decapitating mother in US 26,705 Views Mar 8th 2017, 5:18 PM No Comments Share4 Tweet Email Image: William Murphy via Flickr Short URL By Eoin Reynolds Image: William Murphy via Flickr Married man beat woman to death after she threatened to reveal affair, court hears Roy Webster has pleaded not guilty to the murder of Anne Shortall, but pleaded guilty to her manslaughter.last_img read more

Angela Lang/CNET Apple will unveil its 2019 iPhones next month. As we get closer to September, rumors continue to pour out about the iPhone 11, as well as possible updates for the iPad, Apple Watch, AirPods and HomePod speaker. Apple’s next iPhones are expected to look a lot like the current ones, but the new high-end models may get a matte finish in some colors and new “shatter resistance technology” designed to help them hold up better when dropped, according to a report Thursday from Bloomberg. Apple has also upped the water resistance for its new iPhones, which may “allow them to be submerged under water far longer than the 30-minute rating on the current iPhones,” Bloomberg said.The Bloomberg report also appears to back up previous rumors we’ve heard about the new iPhones. Apple is expected to unveil three new iPhones next month (our bet is on Tuesday, Sept. 10) This will include iPhone 11 Pro models to succeed the iPhone XS and XS Max, according to Bloomberg, as well as a follow-up to the iPhone XR. The company has traditionally reserved the “Pro” designation for its highest-end products, suggesting we could see its most premium iPhone. The new iPhones are also rumored to have more-advanced cameras, faster chips, the next version of the operating system (that’s iOS 13) and perhaps new colors.Apple’s iPad Pro is also getting an upgraded camera and faster processor, according to Bloomberg. And the company is reportedly working on new AirPods — with features like water resistance and noise cancellation — and a cheaper version of its HomePod speaker, which currently costs $300. Both the new AirPods and the cheaper HomePod could launch next year, according to Bloomberg. Apple didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.  $999 Aug 31 • Your phone screen is gross.

Who shares passport bribes

first_imgWho shares passport bribes?Mismanagement and corruption have become a rule at the Agargaon passport office, making passport processing costly for applicants.Law enforcers, politicians, passport officials to middlemen are involved in the corruption, according to an intelligence report and Prothom Alo’s investigations.Those directly involved in the corruption do it in broad daylight and are known to law enforcement and the common people as ‘passport office mediators’.The middlemen do it with the help of some corrupted passport office officials.As per the intelligence report, not only passport office officials, but also members of the police, Special Branch of police (SB) and even Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) and Ansar members in front of the Agargaon office, as well as political leaders, are involved in the corruption.A passport office director and two deputy assistant directors also are in ‘this powerful fraud network.’As a result, a person has to pay Tk 8,000-10,000 to process a regular passport, instead of the government’s fixed fees of Tk 3,450.Scenario at Agargaon Passport OfficeAccording to the Prothom Alo’s investigation, there are a number of middlemen in front of the office. Of them, 14 lead the fraud network.Once an applicant submits all documents to the middlemen, they process it without any hassle. But, this is totally illegal, the investigation found.When asked, a middleman, Sohel said, “You have nothing to be worried about. You give me all the correct information, then leave the rest on me.”How does the bribery network work?The Agargaon passport office now delivers 1,400 to 1,500 passports a day. Out of them, 150-200 passports are processed through this corrupt network.Firstly, the middlemen collect money and other passport papers from the applicants. Then, they illegally attest the documents with the help of Shahidul Islam, Akram Hossain and one Ansar member Rezaul.The intelligence report reads that later the middlemen hand over the papers to passport officials, DAD Amin and Yasin at the rooms 701 and 702 respectively, with Tk 800-1,000 per passport.’Amin and Yasin then gave the hush money to a director of the office, ATM Abu Asad.When comment was sought over the matter, the director did not comment anything, but offered the reporter a cup of tea at his office.The middlemen then gave the policemen Tk 1,000 to 2,000 for verification report.The police, according to the intelligence report, submit their verdict without any verification.Local political leaders shared Tk 200 per passport, and Tk 100 was given to Sher-e-Bangla police station.A certain Md Zakir Hossain aka Shahidul distributed the money.In the process, a broker earn Tk 1,200-2,200 for each passport.Two brokers, Babul Haldar and Morium, said, “Processing emergency passports is more profitable for us.”*The piece originally published in Prothom Alo Bangla has been rewritten in English by Toriqul Islam.last_img read more

HRW calls for UN Rohingya resolution ahead of Myanmar visit

first_imgHuman Rights Watch executive director Ken Roth speaks during a press conference at the Foreign Correspondents Club in Hong Kong on 23 April 2018. AFPHuman Rights Watch called Friday for Myanmar’s Rohingya crisis to be referred to the International Criminal Court, days before a UN Security Council delegation is due to arrive in the country.Myanmar has come under intense pressure since the start of a military campaign in August that has driven some 700,000 Rohingya Muslims over the border into Bangladesh, where refugees have provided consistent testimony of murder and rape by security forces and local mobs.Myanmar’s military insists the campaign was justified as a means to root out Rohingya militants who attacked border guard posts and killed about a dozen police officers.The UN delegation will speak to refugees in the Bangladeshi camps before they head to Myanmar early next week to visit conflict-scarred Rakhine state.They will also meet with Myanmar civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi who has been denounced in the West for her failure to speak up for the Rohingya, a stateless minority that has faced decades of persecution in the largely Buddhist nation.Kenneth Roth, executive director of Human Rights Watch, told reporters in Yangon on Friday that the Security Council should issue a resolution to refer Myanmar to the International Criminal Court or else no one will be held accountable.“The lack of a UN Security Council resolution has left the Myanmar government convinced that it has literally gotten away with mass murder,” he said.He also called for targeted sanctions on perpetrators and an arms embargo.Myanmar has rejected nearly all allegations that its security forces committed atrocities in Rakhine. Earlier this month it dismissed an attempt at the ICC to open a probe into the crisis, saying the court has no jurisdiction.It took months for Myanmar to agree to the delegation’s visit after the UN levelled accusations of ethnic cleansing in Rakhine.The visiting delegation is led by Britain, Peru and Kuwait, whose ambassador Mansour al-Otaibi has said the trip is not about “naming and shaming” Myanmar, but rather to show the country that the “international community is following the situation and has great interest in resolving it”.The United States and its European partners in the council have faced strong opposition to action on the Rohingya crisis from China, which has key economic interests in the neighbouring country.The council adopted a statement in November that called on Myanmar to rein in its military, but there has been no resolution, which could face opposition from China.But Roth said this should not be assumed.“If China wants to veto it should pay the price of turning its back on the crimes against humanity committed against Rohingya.”Bangladesh and Myanmar have signed a repatriation deal for the refugees but no Rohingya have returned from the camps across the border, fearing a lack of safety back home.last_img read more

Checks in the Mail Sony Music Disburses 750 Million to Artists in

first_imgSo how much are we talking about? “It’s a significant amount of money,” says Rudolph, though he declines to divulge the exact number. Using Sony’s own calculations, first outlined in the company’s June letter, an act with a 16% royalty rate and .5% of overall revenues and .33% of Spotify gain revenues could see a payment of $498,000 minus outlays to producers and other royalty participants. “This is all in good faith, and having Rob Stringer there, I’m sure had a lot to do with it,” adds Rudolph. “Rob is a very stand-up guy, and a guy who does the right thing and is very earnest and he’s taking care of artists. That certainly is a huge vote of confidence to artists and managers of his good faith and a desire to work with him and his company in the future.”For his part, Thirty Tigers’ Macias says, “They let it be known very quickly after the IPO that they were going to share this windfall and come up with a plan. It’s a lot of money. I’m just glad it wasn’t a gift set of steak knives.”Will the world’s biggest music company, Universal Music Group, follow Sony’s lead? So far, UMG hasn’t stated its intention but it’s believed they hold $1 billion in Spotify profit from its 3.5% share. Considering parent Vivendi recently floated the idea of selling off up to 50% of UMG, hanging on to it may be the more attractive option. A spokesperson for the company confirmed only an earlier statement that “UMG’s approach to sharing with artists any proceeds of an equity sale also applies to distributed artists and labels, consistent with the terms of their agreements with UMG.” ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Theoretically, Sony got this equity on its own. But of course, they’ve recognized the fact that they couldn’t have gotten it but for the artists. And they made a wonderful decision to voluntarily share the wealth, which is rare in the music industry. So, I commend them highly on their decision.”“To their credit, it seems like they didn’t even think twice about recognizing that that there is value in the relationship between Sony and the creators of the music,” says Thirty Tigers’ co-founder David Macias. His RED-distributed label has been in business with Sony for 16 years and is home to such artists as Jason Isbell, Lucinda Williams and Lupe Fiasco. “There’s a reason I haven’t gone anywhere else,” he adds. “There’s a compensatory relationship there. I’ve always felt like they treated us incredibly fairly and it didn’t surprise me that they chose to take what I felt was a moral stance on this. I know the artists we work with appreciate it a lot. And I appreciate it immensely and certainly in turn we’re sharing those proceeds with our artists.”In Thirty Tigers’ instance, the artists own their own work and it will be left up to the label to distribute the funds. The labels are under no obligation to turn over all of the proceeds, though in its letter to participants, Sony Music encouraged distributed labels to pay the windfall forward. For a label like Thirty Tigers, it does leave open the question of what the obligation is to pay acts that are no longer on the label but generated money during the 10-year period. Macias says that, in his case, they will be honoring those relationships too. “We are making the choice to pay our artist that helped contribute to that,” he says, adding that Sony’s gesture will right what many artists have been complaining about since the arrival of streaming. “A lot of artists out there were super angry, or you could say upset in advance, that this incredible amount of wealth was being conferred and not necessarily to them.” Sony Music has begun to distribute the $750 million in profit it collected from the April sale of 50% of its Spotify shares to the artists and distributed labels within the Sony system, Variety has confirmed. As previously reported, Sony, which held 5.7% of Spotify’s stock when the streaming service went public, will not count the funds against the artists’ and label’s unrecouped earnings.Rather, the “Spotify windfall,” as SME insiders are calling the disbursement, will be apportioned according to individual artist and label contract terms and based on earnings over the last 10 years — or since Sony’s initial investment in the Swedish streaming upstart — divisible against Sony’s own revenues from the Spotify stock gain for that time period.What does this mean to the thousands of artists, representatives and some two million titles involved? The checks are in the mail, and set to arrive by the end of August. Sony had previously stated its commitment to sharing the sum with artists and distributed labels. Music Business Worldwide caught wind of the plan back in June.center_img Popular on Variety The “Herculean task” of crunching the numbers, says an insider, has been a round-the-clock operation for most of the summer and comes at the directive of Sony Music CEO Rob Stringer and his team. It applies to all Sony-affiliated artists and labels in all territories globally and also includes producers and featured guests entitled to profit-sharing.Sony’s payout contrasts with that of competitor Warner Music Group, which took its $126 million in profit and proportionally credited it to artist accounts, but against unrecouped balances and owed expenses (WMG had a 1.9% stake in Spotify and sold all of its equity earlier this month for just over $500 million). That means an artist that is operating in the red and technically still owes the company money will see that balance shrink, but may not pocket any funds: The proceeds would end up back with Warner as part of the recoupment.The majority of major label artists, particularly developing ones, are in an unrecouped position. But those artists signed to Columbia, RCA, Epic and Legacy, the big four of Sony’s recorded music subsidiaries, will also get a check in the coming days, so long as their information is current in the Sony system. The company utilized its breakage allocation system to apportion the payments.The formula Sony used is fairly straightforward: the company looked at the 10-year period during which it owned equity in Spotify, then looked at its revenue from Spotify and overall revenue for the time and divided it up by revenue generated by the artist or label.So if an artist had $5 million in sales over that period, and Sony registered $30 billion in revenue, that contribution (.016%) would be allocated to its portion of the Spotify payout and paid to the artist according to the act’s contract terms for digital royalties. Not surprisingly, the biggest checks seem to align with the most successful artists on the roster — here’s looking at you, Adele — though steady catalog sellers also fare well. The company opted for what was more fair in terms of not weighting those artists who have been stronger in streaming.last_img read more

Living 2014 right try 14 great steps

first_img2014 is here. Another year to fight, to forgive, to fall in love.1. LIVE AND LET LIVEMany a times we fail to do this. We try and squeeze in every little space. In the initial stage of any relation, constant togetherness feels like a bliss. But, as time passes we all feel suffocated with constant monitoring. Try your best to live and let live for a healthier and better tomorrow.2. RESPECTYourself and others. The more you do that, you will realise its importance. Relationships grow brighter only when two people respect each other. You get respect only when you generously give. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’3. DON’T JUDGEWe land up judging others by the way we think. But, judging can lead to wrong decisions and prejudices that harm relationships and hurt us.4. TRANSPARENCYBe transparent to your world and yourself. This is one rule that will never let you down. Be honest to your loved ones and if you have to lie, don’t get caught. Lying is an art and you should learn to do it right.5. SMILEIt actually doesn’t cost a penny but yet we see faces that never smile! Smile is actually sets things right. Don’t forget to share smiles every day. Life is too short to be taken too seriously. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with Netflix6. SPEND TIMENot only with your spouse or family but with yourself. Listen to your favourite music, watch some old movies or just catch up with your buddies. Sometimes, just forget that mobile phone, tab or and spend time learning yourself. You will feel brighter!7. SAVE AND SPENDSaving for future is very important. But, living life fully is equally vital. Do spend on little treats. Sometimes, just go for a spa session or plan a weekend getaway just to feel like a king. Life is unpredictable, enjoy it. Each day should be a celebration.8. SURPRISEYour partner in small little ways and gestures – may be the first cup of coffee to wake him/her or a perfect foot massage at the end of a busy, hectic day. Sometimes do plan small things to floor your partner. This will add a lot of spice to your togetherness. 9. PARENTSDo try and involve your parents along with your partner for some trips, outings or dinner at a restaurant. Parents never say it but feel really happy when you pay them attention. If all can be woven into one big family, the year will become more beautiful.10. SAY SORRY and THANK YOUDon’t hesitate or have any ego to say these. Small words or phrases, some things make a huge difference and can bridge the gaps miraculously. Not only to our own people but to anyone who deserves it, do say ‘sorry’ or ‘thank you’.11. DON’T TOLERATE…Everything and anything. Do express, do protest, do fight when you can’t take it anymore. Any situation that troubles you and makes you unhappy, face it and sort it. Be nice but don’t let your niceness be taken for granted.12. FALL IN LOVEAffairs might have shattered you. People might have betrayed you. Yet, don’t lose confidence on love. Love will surely paint your life when the time is right. Keep your eyes and heart open to receive love when it arrives.13. DELETESit back and delete all the phone numbers of those people who don’t exist in your life or bring back bad memories to you. Deleting numbers or deleting from the ‘friends list’ will give you a smile of victory. Just delete the trash, the unwanted.14. LEARN TO LOVE…Others for sure, but love yourself first. You are the VIP. Treat yourself the best and then the rest. In our lives, we always put us in the last list of priority and spend most of our lifespan living for others. Time to change that. Alphabetically, ‘I’ comes before ‘U’. So, let it be, ‘I Love I’ this new year!last_img read more

North seeks tax to finance Greek Cypriot property claims

first_imgThe head of the north’s Immovable Property Commission (IPC), Ayfer Erkmen, has called on the ‘government’ to introduce a type of capital gains tax to help pay off mounting compensation claims submitted by Greek Cypriot property owners, Turkish Cypriot press reported on Monday.Under the proposal, people who acquired Greek Cypriot property after the 1974 invasion could be hit with a 15 per cent tax bill, the report in Cyprus Today said.It said latest figures show that the IPC has paid out almost £270m sterling in compensation to Greek Cypriots since 2006 although the amount accounts for less than one fifth of the 6,413 applications that have been lodged with it to date.The pace of payouts has slowed in recent years because of funding issues, although new applications are on the up again following the collapse of peace talks at the Swiss resort of Crans-Montana last summer, the reports said.Under the new proposal, a person holding an ‘esdeger’ (exchange) title deed – issued for equivalent land and property abandoned by Turkish Cypriots in the south – would be forced to stump up the cash to help pay for future compensation settlements.Homeowners would be able to take out a special loan to pay the tax, Erkmen said, adding that they would then benefit from a subsequent rise in the value of their property, which he said would become ‘legalised’ in the eyes of the European Court of Human Rights.‘Whether this tax is charged on an annual basis or … at the point of sale, is one issue that needs to be talked about,” Erkmen added. The reports said that buyers need to understand that there was talk behind the scenes of introducing a special financial plan that would provide for the creation of a body, backed by banks, that could offer low-interest loans for the payment of the tax.Once the Greek Cypriot owner was compensated, the value of the property would appreciate by two to three times its current value instantly, Erkman said.He said he had talked the Turkish authorities – which effectively bankroll the IPC – out of introducing a whopping 60 per cent levy. Erkman said funding from the ‘TRNC government’ of roughly £14m sterling per year, based on current exchange rates, was not enough to settle the thousands of outstanding claims.He also said that a total of 21 new applications had been made to the IPC in the first two months of 2018 and that 2017 saw 87 more applications compared with the previous year.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoCrossovers | Search AdsBest New Compact Crossovers for Under 20kCrossovers | Search AdsUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
