Behavioural analysis can help answer the why in BC murders expert

first_imgVANCOUVER — A certified criminal profiler says investigators should find clues about why two men might have killed three people in northern British Columbia and whether there was a leader and a follower by studying exactly how the victims were killed.Jim Van Allen is the former manager of the Ontario Provincial Police criminal profiling unit and has studied 835 homicide scenes.He says behavioural analysis will never have the certainty of fingerprint or ballistic evidence because it involves some interpretation, but it can help answer the big question of “why?”The RCMP has said its behavioural analysis unit will assist investigators in the case of Bryer Schmegelsky and Kam McLeod, who were found dead in Manitoba last week and are suspected of killing three people in northern B.C.Van Allen says analysts in the case will be reviewing crime scene evidence, interviewing friends and family of the suspects and looking over other material available to them, including online posts by the young men before their deaths.The men were charged with second-degree murder in the death of Leonard Dyck, a University of British Columbia botany lecturer, and were suspects in the shooting deaths of Australian Lucas Fowler and his American girlfriend Chynna Deese.Van Allen has no details about the McLeod and Schmegelsky case but says in general police can learn many details about behaviour from a crime scene.He says while all murders are violent, particularly brutal killings can suggest explosive anger and lead investigators in cases where there are no suspects to look for someone who was evicted, fired or recently faced another challenge.Van Allen says he has also looked at crime scenes where there are slight variations in how multiple victims are killed, which alerts investigators to the fact that there were two killers.Amy Smart, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Transat AT expects deadly hurricanes will damage its winter results

first_imgMONTREAL – A series of deadly hurricanes that whipped through parts of the Caribbean last fall is going to have a damaging impact on the winter results of tour operator Transat A.T. Inc., its senior executives said Thursday.The Montreal-based company said in December that it didn’t expect to feel the brunt of September’s hurricanes, but its assessment has changed.“If numbers remain what they are today we will not improve our results in the second quarter versus the one of last year,” chief financial officer Denis Petrin told reporters after the company’s annual meeting.Analyst Cameron Doerksen of National Bank Financial said Transat’s forecast for $1.5 million in earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amoritization in the second quarter is down from the $16 million anticipated by analysts.Transat took a $5-million hurricane hit in the first quarter and expects another $10 million to $15 million in the second quarter because of changed travel patterns resulting from the storms.“What happened in the last three months is that the people that normally are interested in the Cuba destination did not show up,” Petrin said.Travel to Cuba accounts for about one quarter of the airline’s seats to sun destinations. Bad publicity that included images of destruction prompted many Canadians to vacation in other locations. Airlines shifted some capacity to places like Mexico, which forced operators like Transat to lower prices to compete, thereby reducing their profits, he said.Canadian travellers have shied away from Cuba even though all the sun destinations that Transat serves except St. Maarten and San Juan were repaired in January, added chief operating officer Annick Guerard.She said demand for Cuba should come back at some point because it remains a favourite Canadian destination with attractive prices and great beaches.Transat introduced its five-year strategic plan Thursday that will aim to cut an unspecified amount of costs on top of $105 million realized in its previous plan. It also plans to build a hotel network with 5,000 rooms.The company will seek existing hotels to patch up, but will mainly purchase land and build 4.5 and five-star waterfront resorts in Mexico’s Riviera Maya, Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic and probably Jamaica.Transat is also surveying other airlines for examples of gaining more revenues from ancillary fees such as checked baggage, reserved seating and other measures already in place in Canada.The tour company, which operates Transat, missed expectations in its seasonally slow first quarter as its net loss attributable to shareholders was $6.6 million, compared with $32.1 million in the prior year.Excluding one-time items including the $48.2-million sale of its Jonview Canada Inc. subsidiary, Transat had an adjusted loss for the period ended Jan. 31 of $33.9 million or 91 cents per share. That compared with an adjusted loss of $36 million or 98 cents per share in the first quarter of its 2017 financial year.Revenues rose to $725.8 million from $689.3 million on a 6.2 per cent increase in the number of travellers to sun destinations and 20.3 per cent to Europe.Transat was expected on average to post an adjusted loss of 78 cents per share in the quarter on $739.7 million in revenues, according to analysts polled by Thomson Reuters.Follow @RossMarowits on Twitter.Companies in this story: (TSX:TRZ)last_img read more

Commentary Ohio State made the right decision to fire Thad Matta at

Coach Thad Matta calls to players. OSU beat Purdue, 63-61, in the first round of the Big Ten Tournament March 13, 2014 at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Credit: Shelby Lum | Former Photo EditorThere is never a perfect time to fire the winningest coach in a program’s history. There’s no easy way for Ohio State to move on from the man who took the Buckeyes to the brink of winning their first national championship since 1960. But, the timing of Monday’s firing of now-former coach Thad Matta is particularly bad for OSU.Teams have moved on from the 2016-17 season, are transitioning to the fall and, if necessary, they made a coaching change months ago. No head coach has been hired by a major Division 1 school since New Mexico tabbed Paul Weir as its leader on April 11.The inopportune swap is not lost on OSU Athletics Director Gene Smith, who sat next to Matta at a press conference to announce the end of the three-time Big Ten Coach of the Year’s tenure in Columbus Monday.“No time is optimal, but obviously this time is not the best,” Smith said. “So I need to be sensitive to what I’m dealing with in this window of time.”Since OSU is late to the coaching carousel, it won’t have to jockey with other schools for hot-shot up-and-comers or established coaching talent on the market.But is that a good thing, or does it mean that the coaches who check off both “talented” and “available” boxes do not exist any more? Could the Buckeyes have won over former Dayton coach Archie Miller, who decided to leave the state of Ohio to take over the Indiana program? We’ll never know because OSU’s job wasn’t open when the former Flyers coach was listening to the Hoosiers’ pitch.Established coaches and potential candidates such as Arizona’s Sean Miller, Wichita State’s Gregg Marshall and Virginia’s Tony Bennett are each heading successful programs and have turned down offers from major schools in the past. Given OSU’s lackluster roster and the reality that basketball will never be the university’s most important sport, a fit in Columbus for these coaches is not obvious.Exciting, young coaches such as Xavier’s Chris Mack and Butler’s Chris Holtmann could stay with their programs for another season – both of which bring back talented rosters – and hope to attract a head coach offer from a higher profile school than OSU.Whoever sits in Matta’s former chair in the fall will have a tough job. With just 10 scholarship players, including a former walk-on, and major recent roster turnover, the new head coachBut, it just takes one person to say yes. That’s where optimism should set in. Despite the recent struggles, OSU is still appealing, and there’s an obvious place to start: at the bank.Only two Big Ten coaches – Michigan State’s Tom Izzo and Michigan’s John Beilein – made more than Matta in 2017. But if you thought OSU might be cash-strapped as it is buying out Matta’s next three seasons, think again.The athletic department is flush with cash. It is spending $43 million on building a student-athlete development center and $49.7 million on a wrestling facility, and will also be building an arena for volleyball, gymnastics and fencing. They are also reportedly considering building a hockey arena.If OSU thinks it can hire someone to replicate Matta’s success from his first decade as the Buckeyes coach, it would pay up to do so.At Monday’s press conference, Smith said that he didn’t intend to relieve Matta of his duties when the two met on Friday. If that’s true, the pressure is on for him to act quickly and bring in someone who can find the success on the court that has escaped the program in recent years.Only time will tell if the Buckeyes whiffed on their opportunity to find a worthy replacement for Matta in a timely matter. Perhaps Smith has a master plan to land Miller, Villanova coach Jay Wright or Oklahoma City Thunder coach Billy Donovan.But, maybe he doesn’t.Sometimes, even if the correct decision is made but the window of opportunity is missed, the result is a disappointment. OSU might learn the hard way.Colin Hass-Hill: hass-hill.1@osu.edu and Twitter @chasshill read more

Musical Legend KBs Latest Save The Bays Release Das What Real Bahamians

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppNassau, 07 Mar 2016 – Kirkland ‘KB’ Bodie, the musical artist who delivers tough messages to catchy rhythm and rhyme, released his latest Youtube salvo yesterday, taking aim at the government for threatening to replace important land use legislation with a weaker act that he fears fails to protect land or life. The song ‘Das What Real Bahamians Do’, written, performed and produced by ‘KB’, is the latest in a litany of the musician’s lyrics for the environmental movement Save The Bays and like the others, it puts the conscience of a country on notice.“Past songs like ‘Hold dey feet to da fire’ were important because they set the tone, making the point that people need to ask for and demand accountability,” said KB. “But today’s release dealing with the Planning and Subdivision Act was far more challenging. How do you make land use rights and responsibilities sexy? How do make the need for an environmental impact assessment for all developments something people relate to, make it fun, and translate the importance of the right to public consultation into a language that makes people care?”The Act has been a priority issue for Save The Bays, the grass roots environmental organization that has nearly 20,000 followers and friends on Facebook. Environmental attorney and consultant Romi Ferreira, a director of Save The Bays, has been spreading the message of the need to keep the 2010 legislation, speaking to Rotary and other civic organisations, appearing on radio talk shows, at public forums and in paid ‘Say No to PSA’ radio and print ads.“This bill, the 2015 Planning and Subdivision Act that would replace the 2010 Act that we all fought so hard for and was agreed upon, an Act that was passed unanimously, takes away the rights of Bahamians,” said Ferreira. “It takes away the right to be consulted. It is the legitimate expectation of a community to be consulted, to express its opinions and concerns and for those opinions and concerns to be considered before a decision is rendered that will alter that community’s future.”Under the proposed legislation, basic rights of public consultation would vanish and the decision to require an environmental impact assessment would be in the hands of a Cabinet Minister for developments of more than 100 lots despite The Bahamas having signed on to a global agreement to the contrary. The 100-lot scenario, says Ferreira, would only encourage developers to build in phases, 99 lots at a time.While Ferreira looks at the proposed legislation through the eyes of a senior lawyer who has taken environmental and public consultation cases all the way to the Privy Council in London, KB is hoping to get the message across in a way that touches a nerve with a beat that people can’t get out of their heads.“I don’ get it,” sings KB. “I don’t understand, why the government does give away our land…Y’all voted yes on the PSA, now ‘dat y’all in power, you wanna’ take it way…You shouldn’t change the rules when they don’t suit you, you shouldn’t change the law just for the few.”Save The Bays, which sponsors the music with a message and the production of videos appealing to tens of thousands of viewers, has picked up the pace for public online involvement of the environmental movement while partnering with several organisations that have long track records in environmental resource management. A petition to keep the 2010 Planning and Subdivision Act is on its website at www.savethebays.bs and a separate petition calling for Freedom of Information legislation and an environmental protection act along with other measures has already attracted nearly 7,000 signatures.

Fire exposes Nassau vulnerabilities

first_img ALERT # 2 ON POTENTIAL TROPICAL CYCLONE NINE ISSUED BY THE BAHAMAS DEPARTMENT OF METEOROLOGY THURSDAY 12TH SEPTEMBER, 2019 AT 9 PM EDT Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppBahamas, March 6, 2017 – Nassau – The Fire at Jubilee Gardens exposes a string of vulnerabilities in the country’s most populated island and capital, Nassau and now officials are trying to help residents cope with the loss as they summon resources to avoid the fire ever happening again. Top priority though is totally extinguishing the inferno.Up to late last night, the reports were that the fire was still raging in Jubilee Gardens and while there is no official count on the homes consumed in the blaze believed to have been caused by embers from the nearby Harold Road dump blown onto the houses of the people living so nearby; the loss is significant.   The Fire Department was said to be outmatched by the fire which was fanned by 35mph winds and residents were ordered to get out of the community.For years the cry had gone out to remove the dump site; the leading thoughts were linked to mainly to the toxic and foul fumes from the city dump; this morning we grieve as it is proving to have posed so much more of a hazard.  Tall Pines MP, Leslie Miller said he has never seen anything like it in 35 years and believes, as in times past, the dump was lit by stragglers.Prime Minister Christie was on the scene yesterday too, explaining that The Bahamas was in dialogue with the US and said his government will find someone to manage the site, that talks toward this effort are in advanced stages.Residents see it as mere talk though; outraged, broken and disappointed that a government subdivision would be constructed within yards of the dangerous dump. Smoke from the massive fire could be seen black, menacing, billowing from miles away. Airport fire trucks were deployed to the scene to help the domestic unit and Defense Force officers are on board to add manpower.The Kendall Isaacs Gym was opened as a shelter, the Flamingo Gardens Clinic was opened for medical care and NEMA also informed that the Human Society was available as an animal shelter.  Early reports were of smoke inhalation so far. There is no school today for Acquinas College.#MagneticMediaNews The Luxury of Grace Bay in Down Town Provo Recommended for you Electricity Cost of Service Study among the big agenda items at September 11 Cabinet meeting Related Items:#magneticmedianews Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more

Financial Times Grows Paid Digital Subs 34 Percent in First Half 2011

first_imgThe New York Times recently adopted a similar model to that of The Financial Times—NYTimes.com visitors can now get 20 articles free a month or pay for more. The New York Times Company now has just 6,000 less paid digital subscribers, about 224,000 and about 57,000 subscribers for editions on eReaders and tablets, as initially reported by AD, though that metered model did not go into effect until this spring. “In the first half of 2011, digital and services accounted for 46 percent of FT Group revenues and content revenues accounted for 57 percent,” a news release from the group says. “The FT Group achieved good sales and profit growth in turbulent markets in the first half of 2011 and invested in a significant number of new product launches.”Mobile platforms are a growing demographic for the British based publication—about 22 percent of all traffic to FT.com is from a mobile device and account for about 15 percent of new subscriptions. There was a 4 percent increase in paid circulation across both the print and online platforms, to 585,000. The group estimates it reaches a daily audience of 2.1 million.About 60 percent of sales for Pearson come from the United States. While many publishers are still grappling with the question of digital properties and revenue, The Financial Times continues to reap positive benefits from its paid collection model, according to first half 2011 financials released Friday.The group reports that profits are up by 10 percent from the same time in 2010, with overall digital subscriptions propelling the number. The publication’s website, FT.com, saw more than a 30 percent increase in subscriptions.“At the FT Group, the changes we have made to the business model and mix mean we are well placed to grow even in tough markets for print circulation and advertising,” says a news release from Pearson, publisher of The Financial Times. “We expect digital subscriptions, now the engine of the FT Group’s growth, to continue to build steadily.”The group saw a 34 percent increase in digital subscriptions, up to 230,000, and registered users increased by 49 percent to 3.7 million. The Financial Times first launched a paid subscription model in 2001 that gave readers free access to certain content and required payment for others. In 2007, Pearson launched The Financial Times’ metered model, which holds frequency based standards. Currently, registered users can sign up and get 10 articles for free a month, though payment is required for further access.last_img read more

Woburn District Court HEAT Program Addresses Substance Abuse At 12th Annual Conference

first_imgWOBURN, MA — Hundreds of leaders in public health and law enforcement came together last month for the 12th Annual Woburn District Court Heroin Education Awareness Task Force (H.E.A.T.) Conference to discuss the latest trends and treatment surrounding substance abuse.On Friday, June 15, attendees gathered at the Hilton Boston/Woburn to learn more about drug use and ways to assist those struggling with addiction. The half-day meeting consisted of experts speaking about substance abuse treatment, prevention and enforcement.The H.E.A.T. program was founded by Vincent J. Piro and Michael P. Higgins, of the probation department of Woburn District Court, the police departments of the seven cities and towns under its jurisdiction: Woburn, Burlington, North Reading, Reading, Stoneham, Wilmington and Winchester, the Bureau of Substance Abuse Services and the AdCare Educational Institute. The program is designed to educate the public, especially families and friends of those suffering from addiction, about heroin use and abuse trends among young people.“To all the presenters and attendees who joined us for the 12th annual conference, thank you for making this year a success,” Piro said. “Every year, the Woburn District Court and our partner agencies work to provide life saving resources to those in need, and it is through these collaborations that we have been successful.”Over the last few years, overdose deaths have exceeded motor vehicle crashes as the leading cause of accidental death in the United States. More than a decade ago, H.E.A.T. recognized the growing problem between painkiller abuse and heroin use, and every year works to call attention to deadly synthetic substances in an effort to prevent addiction and deaths.“The H.E.A.T. program has been at the forefront of these issues for almost 13 years,” Woburn Police Chief Robert Ferullo said. “It is the belief of leaders at Friday’s conference that we must collaborate across agencies to provide education to the public on prevention, treatment for those struggling with addiction, and enforcement of the laws to make a difference in the opioid crisis.”To open the conference, Stephen Wood from Winchester Hospital spoke about the rise in popularity of vaping, new substances that are being taken for recreational use (everything from Morning Glory flower seeds to “Flakka” — a synthetic cathinone that causes a number of symptoms like hallucinations and violent behavior) and potential warning signs that a loved one may be using drugs.Britte McBride, Commissioner of Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission, informed attendees about the provisions and regulations that will be in place for the marijuana industry once legalized sales go into effect on July 1, including mandated advertisements to educate consumers and promote safe use of products, stringent security protocols at establishments and testing of products before they go onto the market.Billerica Town Manager John Curran shared his experience with the opioid crisis from a municipal level, using a proactive and reactive approach, while Tewksbury Police Chief Timothy Sheehan spoke about the change in perspective that law enforcement must take to address the opioid epidemic.“We found that we couldn’t arrest our way out of the problem,” Chief Sheehan said. “We were really failing by not going deeper into the issue, and instead just going through the judicial system.”In Tewksbury, the mentality of solely relying on enforcement has been altered and officials are looking at education, collaboration with local agencies and counseling/treatment to address the root of the issue. Additionally, all officers carry Narcan, an opioid reversal drug, to save the lives of those who are overdosing.Michael McLaughlin and Pierce Aliberti, of Stoneham, closed the conference by sharing their experiences and journeys to recovery, thanking those who helped them along the way with resources and support.(NOTE: The above press release is from JGPR.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

This 65 waterproof wireless speaker is on sale for 2250

first_img Now playing: Watch this: Big points for the name alone: Vava Voom! Vava Need a speaker you can take with you to the beach? The pool? The quarry? (I don’t know, do people still go swimming at quarries? If Breaking Away taught me anything…) Make sure it has an IPX5 rating or better so it can withstand the inevitable splashes.Like this one: For a limited time, and while supplies last, ZDNet Academy + Deals has the Vava Voom 20 Bluetooth Speaker for $22.50 when you apply promo code VAVA25 at checkout. Price at Amazon: $65.See it at ZDNetJust to be clear, the Voom 20 isn’t 100% waterproof — it’s splashproof. So it probably won’t survive getting dunked, but if it gets sprayed by the hose, no problem.Beyond that, the speaker is notable for offering dual passive subwoofers (translation: lots of bass), the option to pair two different Bluetooth sources (two phones, for example, or a phone and a tablet), support for NFC pairing (great if your phone supports it as well) and a rechargeable battery that promises up to 8 hours of play time (at 80 percent volume).The Voom 20 also has a Type-A USB port you can use to recharge your phone or another mobile device, though because it’s a 1-amp port, it won’t recharge particularly quickly.CNET hasn’t reviewed this model, but some 365 Amazon customers collectively rated it 4.1 stars.The key thing to know here, aside from this being a crazy-good deal, is that if you order today, delivery is about two weeks out. That means this won’t arrive in time for Father’s Day. But if you need a gift for a midsummer graduation party, this could work.And, hey, if you just need something to accompany you on your next quarry visit, done and done. Bonus deal: Get 10 feet of cord-covering raceway for $10Nothing destroys decor like unsightly cords, especially when they’re running down walls or along baseboards. Solution: Raceway track, which isn’t as good as running the cords inside the wall, but is definitely an improvement.Here’s a dirt-cheap kit to get you started: The Yecaye CMC-01 Raceway Kit for $10.19 when you click the on-page 10%-off coupon and then apply promo code YECAYE01 at checkout.

Marvel TV chief was blindsided by Netflix cancellations of Daredevil Jessica Jones

first_img Comments Tags Netflix’s Marvel Defenders shows were all canceled. Sarah Shatz/Netflix The sprawling beast that is Disney has, it turns out, a downside. Jeph Loeb, chief of Marvel TV, suggested he’d been left out of the loop when it came to Netflix canceling its Marvel TV shows, following the streamer’s breakup with Marvel TV overlord Disney.”The hardest part was while the situation at Netflix of which I really can’t go into other than to say that we were blindsided and the things that were to come weren’t finished yet,” Loeb said in an interview with Deadline published on Monday.In 2017 Disney dropped the bombshell that it would be pulling all its movies from Netflix by 2019 and not renewing its contract with the streamer. While it got on with plans for its own mammoth streamer, Netflix went on to cancel its Marvel TV shows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Punisher. The heroes in the first four of those shows had formed the groundbreaking Defenders crossover miniseries in 2017.Outside Netflix, many streamers that share Disney corporate parenthood currently host Marvel TV shows. Two of those on different platforms will see another groundbreaking crossover: Cloak & Dagger on Freeform and Runaways on Hulu.Loeb touched on what Marvel TV looks for in a streamer relationship. “A lot of times the reason why Marvel lands on a platform is because of the people. When they get it, when they want us,” Loeb said.Red flags come in the form of big agendas.”I’ve been on the other side of that, I’ve been the writer producer, who’s tried to work with the network, and there’s a whole agenda that’s going on that you don’t know anything about, you’re just making your show,” said Loeb, who’s written for Smallville and Heroes.In talking about Marvel TV’s embrace of animated shows, including the idea of an animated Deadpool, Loeb brought up the Defenders and confirmed he was putting together a team of heroes again but in the world of animation. This band of misfits, including Howard the Duck, will be known as the Offenders and have a place on Hulu. Loeb also confirmed Ghost Rider and Helstrom projects are in the pipeline.One thing Loeb had to clear up is that Marvel Studios, not Marvel Television, is in charge of all those Disney Plus shows coming out, like Loki and Hawkeye. He did confirm Marvel TV is going to do shows with Disney Plus, but has no announcements for us yet.Netflix and Disney did not have a comment, while Marvel TV have not yet responded to a request for comment. 7 Share your voice TV and Movies 2019 TV shows you can’t miss 50 Photos Marvel Netflixlast_img read more
