Students could select from up to 60 courses at their formerschools. At North Nova they can choose from more than 120 courses. Amongthe newer courses and programs available are an enhanced finearts program which includes film and video production techniques. Also new to many students are enhanced core French and Frenchimmersion, and advanced courses in English, math, physics,biology and chemistry. The school also boasts an Occupational Preparedness Program inwhich students can study automotive care, food services, forestryand retail merchandising. “We’re now able to meet the needs of more students at a criticaltime in their lives,” said North Nova principal Eileen English. “The expanded course offerings, increased student population andmodern facilities offer some fantastic opportunities, bothcurricular and extra-curricular, for the students of North Nova.” A partnership of local community groups and individuals raisedabout $1 million dollars for enhancements, including a largergymnasium and the construction of a 350-seat theatre/auditoriumat both North Nova and the Northumberland Regional High School inAlma. Construction was completed in September 2003.
The agency representing Canada’s beef producers is urging trade negotiators to resist U.S. protectionism during NAFTA talks.According to John Masswohl, Director of Government and International Relations with the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association, the existing NAFTA deal has worked well for the cattle industry in Canada, the U.S. and Mexico. He said producers in all three countries are generally in agreement when it comes to cross border trade.However, Masswohl wants to see negotiators chip away at ‘Buy America’ provisions that restrict access for Canadian producers in some cases.“Anything that has federal funding, like school lunch programs, women-infant children nutrition programs has to all be ‘Buy America,’ ” Masswohl said. “That’s a huge market in the U.S. that we don’t have any access to right now.”In addition to resisting protectionist measures, improving cross-border movement is also an issue.“We can make the border work a little more efficiently so we don’t lose money just by having inefficient borders,” Masswohl said. “When you’re talking about a perishable product in the back of a truck, like a live animal or beef, then you’ve got to have an efficient border so it doesn’t siphon value off.”The U.S. remains Canada’s biggest trading partner when it comes to cattle. In 2016, Canada exported about $3-billion worth of beef south of the border, according to Masswohl.

In Fabric tops Peter Howell’s annual pre-TIFF “Chasing the Buzz” poll of anticipated films at the fest. (COURTESY TIFF) LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Login/Register With: The buzz is back. Can you hear it?Every year before the Toronto International Film Festival, the Toronto Star conducts an informal poll of savvy movie critics, programmers, bloggers and buffs for a feature we call “Chasing the Buzz.” This year, the 18th edition of the poll, we asked our panelists to give us a “wild card” pick in addition to their main rave.Each of our 30 panelists was asked to explain their top movie choice for TIFF 2018, but then to just shout out a second title of interest, with no explanations given. That combo produced a clear leader in Peter Strickland’s In Fabric, a ghost story about a cursed scarlet dress and the lives it corrupts, from the master of mind screws behind The Duke of Burgundy and Berberian Sound Studio. Starring Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Hayley Squires and Gwendoline Christie, it produced the most buzz with a total of five votes. This is the first time a film from TIFF’s Midnight Madness program of late-night excitement has topped our poll.The runner-up, with three votes: If Beale Street Could Talk, by Barry Jenkins, the Oscar-winning director of Moonlight. He adapts James Baldwin’s acclaimed 1974 novel, set in Harlem and starring KiKi Layne and Stephan James, about a young expectant couple in jeopardy.

TORONTO — Courier companies say they’re seeing an increase in volume as a possible work stoppage looms at Canada Post.UPS Canada has hired approximately 300 new staff across the country and says it is already seeing a sharp increase in business volume as Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers negotiate a new contract. Canada Post ’s customers prepare for its planned Friday lockout of 50,000 postal workersAmericans are now allowed to spend 40 times more online than Canadians without duty chargesCanada Post says a 72-hour notice delivered to the union on Tuesday does not necessarily mean it will shut down on Friday, and CUPW has vowed to not go on strike and stay at the bargaining table.Purolator says it has also seen a significant increase in shipping volume.A spokesperson says the company has a contingency plan to hire more staff and institute overtime hours, should a work stoppage occur.FedEx says it has a contingency plan, but would not reveal what that plan entails.A UPS spokesman said the company is used to spikes in business around certain times of year, like Christmas, but that this is a different situation.“Christmas is an event we know is on the calendar, lasts a certain amount of time and then fades away,” said Nicolas Dorget. “This (potential work stoppage), we know when it possibly is starting, but we don’t know when it possibly is going to end.”The dispute revolves, in part, around such issues as potential changes to pension plans for new employees, the future of door-to-door mail delivery and differences in the way rural and urban postal workers are compensated.The union wants a pay increase for its rural, mostly female carriers, who earn 28 per cent less than their urban, mostly male, counterparts to address what CUPW sees as a pay equity issue.Canada Post has called CUPW’s demands “not affordable,” saying they would add $1 billion in costs over the life of a new contract as the postal service undergoes a review of operations, including the move away from door-to-door delivery.The federal government has said it will stay out of a looming work stoppage for now, putting the onus on Canada Post and the union to come to an agreement quickly before the mail stops being delivered.Canadian Press

That’s down from 109.4 in April and 111.3 in March. The index has slipped 1.7 per cent over the past 12 months.Would-be buyers are facing higher prices and fewer options. Sales listings have plunged 8.4 per cent over the past 12 months to 1.96 million. The median sales price in May rose 5.8 per cent from a year ago to $252,800.Pending sales contracts are a barometer of future purchases. A sale is typically completed a month or two after a contract is signed. The steady decline suggests that homes sales growth is increasingly limited, though demand and mortgage applications indicate that sales should be stronger than last year.“Today’s reading signals a small dip in June existing home sales, but they don’t change the big picture,” said Ian Shepherdson, chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics.The measure of signed contracts in May fell in the Northeast, South and West. It remained unchanged in the Midwest. FILE – In this Thursday, April 27, 2017, file photo, an “Under Contract” sign is posted in front of a home for sale in Charlotte, N.C.

“The attempts aimed at preventing a media representative from freely carrying out his duties demonstrate a disturbing regard for freedom of expression,” said Ján Kubiš, head of the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA). Mr. Rosenberg was yesterday informed that he would not be permitted to leave Afghanistan as he was under investigation for unspecified in relation to an article he authored the previous day. He was asked but declined to provide the names of Afghan officials who were anonymously quoted in the article. Today, the Afghan Attorney General’s Office announced they were expelling Mr. Rosenbeg within 24 hours for allegedly failing to assist their investigation. The UN mission has urged Afghan authorities to urgently review their actions in light of due process, domestic laws and the international obligations of Afghanistan to safeguard media freedoms in the country. “Open media is critical for healthy society and journalists must be able to work in a climate free of intimidation,” Mr. Kubiš stressed.
One day before Chris Paul signed his five-year, $107.3-million free-agent contract with the Clippers, Paul joined his teammates J.J.Redick, Jared Dudley and Darren Collison and holdovers Matt Barnes and Ryan Hollins at their own contract ceremony.Paul could have commanded all the attention, but he decided to share it.“I didn’t want that,” Paul said. “We all had to sign at the same time, so why not do a press conference together? There’s no one person who’s more important than the team, and I absolutely mean that.”So when the Clippers held a news conference on Wednesday to announce their newly signed players, Paul sat quietly in the back row.
Prince HarryGetty imagesAll the outrage aimed at Meghan Markle by fans and Royal observers for the decision to hold baby Archie’s christening behind closed doors may have been unjustified. According to a Royal expert, it is, in fact, Prince Harry and not Meghan Markle who decided that they should hold the ceremony in private.Fans and Royal observers aimed their ire at the Duchess of Sussex because she has ignored Royal tradition before in favour of her privacy. Like keeping the delivery of baby Archie a secret and refusing to pose for photos after his birth. However, the Duke of Sussex is reportedly the one who wanted Archie’s christening to be small and private, according to Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine.Archie will reportedly be christened in the Queen’s private chapel and not St George’s Chapel, where the couple was married. Meghan MarkleGetty ImagesMs. Seward told the Daily Mail: “I think this is quite Harry-led and it is putting Meghan in a very difficult position…..She’s the one getting all the flak as a newcomer to the Royal Family.” Prince Harry is making a mistake in the long term. But we have to agree with him, as a parent, he has every right to hold his child’s christening any way he pleases.”I assume Harry and Meghan don’t know where they are going wrong and think the criticism is all so very unfair,” Ms. Seward added. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were married last year in a gorgeous ceremony, but ever since then, it is Meghan Markle who has been under constant scrutiny. She has been criticized for her disregard for Royal protocols and traditions as well as for being difficult. We hope that Prince Harry shares the burden on the criticism with Meghan regarding his decision about the christening.
Reliance Communications chairman Anil Ambani with his son Anmol Ambani during Reliance Capital’s annual general meeting (AGM) in Mumbai, on Sept 26, 2016.IANSShares of Reliance Communications Ltd (RCom) plumbed the depths on Monday, crashing more than 50 percent on the National Stock Exchange, after the debt-laden company said last week it will move the insolvency tribunal seeking bankruptcy protection.Rcom shares nosedived to their record low in early trade, falling as much as 54.3 percent to Rs. 5.3 per share. More than 12 crore shares of the Anil Ambani-led company were traded in less than 45 minutes of trade even as investors dumped the telecom stock and ran for cover.The crisis-hit firm said it was moving for bankruptcy protection after its attempts to pare Rs 42,000 crore debt failed despite attempts over the last 18 months to sell assets and negotiate with the lenders.”The board noted that, despite the passage of over 18 months, lenders have received zero proceeds from the proposed asset-monetisation plans, and the overall debt-resolution process is yet to make any headway,” the company said on Friday.The latest blow for Rcom was the failure of the plan to sell assets worth Rs 18,000 crore owing to legal hurdles. The beleaguered company also found it hard to bring about an agreement among the lenders over the debt resolution plan. The State Bank of India, China Development Bank, Union Bank, Canara Bank, IDBI Bank and Standard Chartered Bank are among the 40 lenders Rcom owes money. Reliance Jio data breach: User details of 120 million subscribers leaked online Close The board said it now looks at comprehensive debt resolution within the next 270 days. During this period, NCLT will oversee the process to sell RCom assets even as the company is run by interim resolution professionals (IRPs).Friday’s development meant that the plan to sell spectrum and towers to Mukeh Ambani-led Reliance Jio would stand cancelled.For debt-laden RCom, which decided to wind up its wireless business in December 2017, the sale of spectrum to Mukesh Ambani-controlled Reliance Jio was crucial for survival. The Supreme Court had approved the sale on 30 November subject to conditions. However, protracted legal wrangles delayed the deal, effectively leading the failed firm to choke up finally.Net loss widens When the debt resolution process restarts under the interim resolution professionals, Reliance Jio would be able to bid for RCom assets again, at a cheaper price. Thus it turns out that RCom’s spectacular undoing is a straightway gain for Reliance Jio. Early last month, the Supreme Court set the ball rolling in Ericsson’s contempt proceedings against Anil Ambani over the non-payment of Rs 550 crore Reliance Communications owes to the Swedish firm.Meanwhile, the debt-ridden company’s net loss widened in the third quarter of FY19. RCom said it incurred a loss of Rs 238 crore on a consolidated basis in the December quarter compared to Rs 130 crore loss year on year.
US president Special advisor and daughter Ivanka Trump participates in a conversation on workforce development and news of the day at the Newseum in Washington on 2 August. Photo: AFPIvanka Trump distanced herself Thursday from some of her father’s most controversial policies and strident rhetoric, saying she is “vehemently against” family separations and that journalists are not the enemy.Speaking publicly for the first time since she shuttered her eponymous fashion brand last week, the first daughter and senior advisor to president Donald Trump took a decidedly different approach than her combative father to stress that the immigration crisis has caused her anxiety.“That was a low point for me as well,” Trump, 36, told a conference organized by news website Axios, referring to the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy that led to the stripping of thousands of children from their migrant parents.“I am very vehemently against family separation and the separation of parents and children, so I would agree with that sentiment.”Ivanka’s position aligns with the opinion of everyday Americans, who polls show are largely opposed to the separations.The immigration crisis, which swelled further when audio emerged of detained toddlers crying for their mothers, caused a firestorm and in June the president reversed course.But as of last week’s deadline, 711 of the roughly 2,500 separated children were still not reunited with their parents, and officials were unable to clarify when they would see their family.Trump also distanced herself from her father’s relentless condemnation of the media-attacks that have raised the levels of anti-press antagonism at his recent rallies.While saying she had “sensitivity” about why some people who feel targeted have gripes with reporters, she said the name which the president has bestowed on them is misplaced.“No, I do not feel that the media is the enemy of the people,” Ivanka said.Her words came in stark contrast to those of the president hours later, when he dubbed journalists “horrible, horrendous people” while speaking at a Pennsylvania rally.Incredibly difficult issuesMany observers at the start of Trump’s presidency expressed confidence that Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner, formed a compassionate camp in the White House and would act as a check on her father’s cruder instincts.That has largely failed to materialize. While Trump was said to have discouraged her father privately from the border policy, she said nothing publicly until after his reversal, when she thanked him for “taking critical action ending family separation.”Last year, she urged him to keep the United States in the Paris climate accord, but her prodding fell on deaf ears and the president pulled out.In November, as Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore faced accusations of misconduct with teen girls when he was in his 30s, Ivanka Trump declared “there’s a special place in hell for people who prey on children.”But two weeks later, the president endorsed Moore, who ultimately lost to a Democrat.As first daughter, Ivanka has travelled overseas representing the United States, attended meetings with visiting heads of state and travelled domestically, fuelling speculation she may harbour future political ambitions of her own.“I’m really passionate about the work that I’m doing here and I’m really committed to it,” she said Thursday.So much so that last week she announced she was closing her fashion brand, following criticism about potential conflicts of interest and flagging sales.In discussing the immigration crisis, Trump described herself as “the daughter of an immigrant”-her mother was born and raised in the former Czechoslovakia, and came to the US legally.“So we have to be very careful about incentivizing behaviour that puts children at risk of being trafficked,” said Trump, a mother of three.“These are incredibly difficult issues, and like the rest of the country I experience them in a very emotional way.”
All hail Square Enix, bringer of awesome games and now, food and drink.This month, the official gigantic Square Enix Cafe opened in the geek paradise of Akihabara. Although they already have a smaller cafe called Artnia which is attached to their headquarters, this mecca for geeks is a much flashier version of that cafe, with themes that will change with Square Enix’s hottest game debuts.AdChoices广告Right now, Final Fantasy XV is the hot topic of the year, with the cafe adorned with images from the soon to be released game, and special menu items that feature food that appears in the game, anime, or movie, like the banana pound cake, which was featured in Ignis’ episode of the FFXV anime series.The regular food at the cafe features a large array of savory and sweet items, not necessarily themed from any game, but they look ridiculously delish. But don’t forget dessert! Check out this Gaia’s Wrath Mont Blanc, which can be yours for the low price of 900 yen (~$9USD).Hajime Tabata, the director of FFXV even got in on the fun at the cafe, appearing for photos and interviews last week.The restaurant is located directly across the street from the JR Akihabara train station, on the first floor of the Yodobashi Camera electronics department store, making it a holy pilgrimage for any gaming fan who is in the area.I’ll have the vodka martini Phoenix Down, please.The restaurant also features an electronic tablet ordering system, so if you’re fuzzy on your Japanese skills, you can avoid the awkwardness of ordering by just clicking on pictures and selecting their English language menu. Hooray!Anticipating hordes of geeks to descend upon them, the cafe has 90-minute seating slots that you can reserve in advance online, or go to the cafe in person to see if there are any left for the day. But if you’re not in town for long, we recommend you don’t roll those dice, since fans have been flocking to the cafe and filling up the time slots since its grand opening on October 1st.Inside the cafe, you can enjoy the sweet sounds of Final Fantasy background music while you dine, and of course, load up on swag at the two gift shops located inside. The shops feature merchandise from FFXV as well as Square Enix’s other beloved series.You can get news from the cafe via their official website, as well as their Twitter! ‘Final Fantasy XIV’ and ‘Masters of Doom’ Are Yo…’Final Fantasy VII’ Remake Is a Real Game Now, Coming Next March Stay on target

3 min read This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. This story originally appeared on CNBC Enroll Now for Free April 21, 2015 This is the curious story of how a robot armed with a weekly budget of $100 in bitcoin managed to buy Ecstasy, a Hungarian passport and a baseball cap with a built-in camera—before getting arrested.The “automated online shopping bot” was set up in October last year by Swiss art group, !Mediengruppe Bitnik, as an art installation to explore the “dark web”—the hidden, un-indexed part of the Internet.Each week, the robot was given $100 worth of Bitcoin— the major hard-to-trace cryptocurrency—and programmed to randomly purchase one item from Agora, an online marketplace on the dark web where shoppers can buy drugs and other illegal items. The items were automatically delivered to a Swiss art gallery called Kunst Halle St Gallen to form an exhibition.The robot was christened “Random Darknet Shopper” and its purchases included a Hungarian passport, Ecstasy pills, fake Diesel jeans, a Sprite can with a hole cut out in order to stash cash, Nike trainers, a baseball cap with a hidden camera, cigarettes and the “Lord of the Rings” e-book collection.Perhaps unsurprisingly, the robot and his artistic creators had a run in with the law. In January 2015, the Swiss police confiscated the robot and its illegal purchases.However, three months later, the Random Darknet Shopper was returned to the artists, along with all its purchases except the Ecstasy (also known as MDMA) tablets, which was destroyed by the Swiss authorities.The artists behind the robot escaped without any charges.”This is a great day for the ‘bot, for us and for freedom of art!” !Mediengruppe Bitnik, said in a blog post last week. “In the order for withdrawal of prosecution, the public prosecutor states that the possession of Ecstasy was indeed a reasonable means for the purpose of sparking public debate about questions related to the exhibition.”RoThe Swiss authorities confirmed that the artists and the robot would not be charged.”We decided the Ecstasy that is in this presentation was safe and nobody could take it away. Bitnik never intended to sell it or consume it so we didn’t punish them,” Thomas Hansjakob, a spokesperson for the Swiss St Gallen police, told CNBC on Tuesday.He added that the artists had not informed the police before undertaking this project and that the authorities had heard about it from the media.!Mediengruppe Bitnik said that all the items except the Ecstasy had been returned to them.

Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates Top Stories Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family Amnesty International and the United Nations have called attention to allegations of human rights abuses in connection with the eviction of families living on land slated for Olympic and World Cup projects. Nationwide, some 170,000 people are facing threats to their housing, or already have been removed, in the 12 cities that will host World Cup matches, according to the Coalition of Popular Committees for the World Cup and the Olympics, an advocacy group for residents of the affected shantytowns.Rio authorities insist the evictions have been carried out legally, but advocates counter that the city’s compensation is grossly inadequate. In 2010, compensation averaged $16,000 per home _ an amount advocates say falls far short of allowing those displaced to buy another home in Rio, one of the hottest property markets in the world.Activists are also campaigning against the planned metro extension. They contend the chosen trajectory is less in the interest of the public good than that of well-connected lobbyists.“In terms of public transit, the legacy of the games will be nil,” said engineer Licinio Machado Rogerio, a member of The Metro that Rio Needs, a nonprofit group pushing for an alternative subway route that has received considerable support from urban planners, architects and academics. “Everyone sees the project and comes away scratching their head because it’s so clearly the wrong solution.” Arizona families, Arizona farms: A legacy of tradition embracing animal care and comfort through modern technology Comments Share New high school in Mesa lets students pick career paths An Olympic-sized pool built for the 2007 Pan American Games was judged inadequate to house the swimming competitions and needs a costly renovation to host the Olympic water polo and diving events. The legendary Maracana football stadium, which was overhauled for the Pan Am Games, is undergoing another upgrade ahead of the World Cup.“Everything that was built for the Pan Am Games is obsolete, just five years on, and the Rio 2016 organizers themselves acknowledge there was no legacy from those games besides the experience of hosting a mega-event,” said urban planning professor Gaffney. “This time, it’s the same people in charge, with more money and fewer controls. So why will it be any different?”Organizers acknowledged Rio’s shortage of hotel rooms was the city’s main weakness going back to the bid stage, which pitted the city against Madrid, Tokyo and Chicago in a 2009 vote. More than 2 million visitors entered London’s Olympic Park during this year’s games, but Rio’s current hotel capacity stands at about 33,000 beds, including those at the “love” motels that dot the seedier neighborhoods.During a recent United Nations conference here, Mayor Paes had to resort to decreeing a three-day public holiday, closing schools and urging residents to rent out rooms to conference participants. For the Olympics, organizers have promised to put up to 12,000 people on cruise ships docked at the city’s to-be-revamped downtown port, and generous incentives aim to spark private investment in new hotels. Eike Batista, Brazil’s richest man, is building or refurbishing two hotels. Next year, organizers are to decide whether to construct additional housing villages, which Gaffney said would be turned into high-end apartments after the games.Johnny Tucker, editor of the British architecture and design journal Blueprint, said the Brazilians were already off to a slow start compared with London four years ahead of the games, but he added he wasn’t too worried about Rio’s prospects.“I think the general consensus is that they are quite a way behind but that it would all get done in the end,” he said in a telephone interview. “In Brazil, working patterns are different from the U.K.”Despite the litany of problems, the organizers remain doggedly optimistic.Team members were on hand in London to learn from British experience and they’ve said they hope to iron out solutions to two of the main pitfalls of this year’s games, the sparsely populated stadiums and pre-competition transport issues. Still, observers say efficiency and punctuality have never been the country’s strong suit, and many are bracing for a rocky ride as Rio rushes to build the city’s four main Olympic sites and undertakes a massive, pre-games infrastructure overhaul. Rio is also one of 12 Brazilian cities gearing up to host the World Cup football tournament in 2014.“On the ground, we can expect … cost overruns and a rush to push through projects. Cariocas (Rio residents) will see their cost of living increase, their streets clogged and the branding of their public spaces,” said Christopher Gaffney, an American academic who’s a visiting professor at the graduate school of architecture and urban planning at the Fluminense Federal University in Rio’s sister city, Niteroi. His research focuses on preparations for the World Cup and Olympics.“While the Brazilians will undoubtedly pull together a great party, the hangover will last for a generation,” Gaffney said.More than 230 projects are slated to be finished by the 2016 games, with the sports venues scheduled for delivery between mid-2015 and early-2016 for test events, according to the International Olympic Committee. Of those, over 65 have already been completed or are in the final stages. That leaves a high volume of projects to be carried out simultaneously over the next four years _ a feat that even Rio 2016 organizers acknowledge is tricky.“Time is an adversary but time is also on our side,” Leonardo Gryner, CEO of the Rio 2016 organizing committee, told reporters at a news conference Friday in London. “We’ll get a few cold sweats but this is normal. We are on time and going according to schedule.”Rio 2016 organizers see the games as a pivotal moment in the city’s history that will turn the page on the decades of slow decline and neglect that followed the loss of the capital to Brasilia in 1960. Speaking at a recent news conference, Rio Mayor Eduardo Paes promised the event would leave an “enormous legacy.”City, state and local governments are investing nearly $12 billion in massive infrastructure projects they say will help revitalize derelict urban areas and ease the chronic transportation woes in this metropolis of 6 million. Beyond the sporting venues, Rio is slated to get a new metro line, a revamped airport, improved roads and a renovated port.But many of the projects have been tainted by controversy, some even before ground was broken. Associated PressRIO DE JANEIRO (AP) – The snuffing out of the Olympic flame in London Sunday marked a conclusion for most, but for 2016 host city Rio de Janeiro it kicked off four years of pre-games jitters and a race against the clock to ready this notoriously laid-back beach city for the global sports showcase.Playing Olympic host is a high-stakes bet for any country, but Brazil seems to have more riding on the games than most. The nation has enjoyed an economic surge over the past decade, a boom that saw it overtake Britain as the world’s sixth biggest economy. Brazilians regard the Olympics as their grand entrance onto the world stage _ and their emergence as a superpower. Patients with chronic pain give advice Even the name of an Olympic stadium has sparked a polemic. The stadium slated to host the track and field events bears the name of Joao Havelange, the disgraced Brazilian former head of world soccer body FIFA.Swiss court documents published last month showed Havelange received millions of dollars in a World Cup kickback scandal in the 1990s. He paid a Swiss court about $550,000 to end a criminal investigation into alleged embezzlement. The decision on a possible stadium name change is up to the city, but officials have insisted the name is here to stay.Beyond the controversies, other Olympic projects have been plagued by technical mistakes.“The preparations have barely begun and already we’ve seen pop up surreal examples of problems which clearly could have been avoided,” read a recent article in the Veja newsweekly magazine. A drawing on the front page featured a Brazilian athlete bearing the Olympic torch so high the flames licked away at the games’ five-ringed flag overhead.The site of the equestrian events, a military zone in the north of the city, is thought to be dotted with explosives left over from trainings and will require a three-to-six month sweep to remove the forgotten ordnance. Sponsored Stories More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements Rio native Joao Carlos de Figueireiro said that despite the “mess” that was sure to come, he had faith things would work out in the end.“There are definitely things we need to work on, organization-wise,” said Figueireiro, a 56-year-old barman at a neighborhood cafe, where a TV blared the Brazilian women’s volleyball final against the U.S. “But we’re experts at pulling rabbits out of hats at the last minute and I’m sure that’s what we’re going to do. At least I hope so.”(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) 4 sleep positions for men and what they mean
