New exhibit in Manitoba commemorates tragic Metis history that needs to be

first_imgBrittany HobsonAPTN NewsA new exhibit chronicling a tragic and historic time in Metis history has opened at the Manitoba Museum in Winnipeg. Ni Kishkishin, meaning I Remember, retells the story of Ste. Madeleine, a former Metis settlement located along the Manitoba, Saskatchewan border.In 1939, nearly 300 people living in the community were displaced when provincial and municipal governments designated the land for community pastures as part of what was called the Prairie farm rehabilitation administration.During the unveiling of the exhibit Metis Elder George Fleury shared stories of his childhood.He recalled the tragic moment his family returned home from working various jobs.“Our house had been burned down while we were gone,” said Fleury. “I was only four-years-old but I remember seeing my mother crying and my father’s shoulders heaving up and down.“He was crying too.”Government came into Ste. Madeleine and burned down the homes as well as their dogs were shot dead.Fleury says he was too young to understand the full impact of what this meant for his parents.“I didn’t sense what the loss was but in their hearts they knew what had been lost,” he said.“They lost their homes, their livelihood, their dignity.”The exhibit is displayed in Michif, French and English. It includes artifacts and stories from Elders, including Fleury.All that’s left of the settlement today is a cemetery.“Ste. Madeleine is a piece of history that needs to be corrected,” said John Fleury, son of George and a minister with the Manitoba Metis Federation.The organization continues to fight with governments to have the land returned.“When you talk about reconciliation, well come on Manitoba step up to the plate and let’s do some reconciling,” said the younger Fleury.bhobson@aptn.ca@bhobs22last_img read more

10 tips to best help someone diagnosed with cancer

first_imgTHE PSYCHOLOGICAL SOCIETY of Ireland (PSI) have these 10 tips on how to best help someone diagnosed with cancer.There are over 200 different types of cancer and one in three of us will be affected during our lifetime.“Perhaps the two most important things to remember are that emotions will not follow in neat stages and that over emphasising being positive can actually be an additional burden to the person diagnosed with cancer,” advises PSI Registered Member, Dr Paul D’Alton, Head and Clinical Lead of the Department of Psycho-oncology at St. Vincent’s University Hospital.Here are the 10 tips to help cope with and respond to the diagnosis:Being ‘positive’ doesn’t always help. Trying too hard to be positive can end up making people miserable! Facing up to uncertainty and insecurity takes courage and may be painful, however can be a much more helpful way to manage the ups and down of a cancer diagnosis.Don’t be afraid to say ‘I don’t know what to say’. Learn to tolerate your own emotional discomfort. Learn to just listen. Everyone’s response to a cancer diagnosis is unique. Try to understand what it might be like to be in their shoes by simply listening and allowing them to express what they’re feeling, even if it doesn’t always make sense or seem logical.Don’t expect emotions to progress along in neat stages. This experience will unfold as a process and there will be many ups and downs where their needs change on a day-to-day (or sometimes hour-to-hour) basis.Avoid advice giving. This can be unhelpful and make people feel they should be ‘doing a better job’ at coping than they are. Advising people to keep positive and battle on is not helpful for everyone.Try not to personalise. If you’re experiencing conflict, try and remember that your partner or friend or family member may be angry at the situation and not at you personally. We tend to take our frustration out on our nearest and dearest.6. Eat well, exercise and get enough sleep. Take care of yourself. You might not have cancer, but this is difficult for you. Stress can disrupt our usual routines at a time when it is more important than ever to maintain the basics of eating well, exercising and sleep. By taking care of yourself you are in a much better position to care for others.Don’t be afraid to ask for help, and say ‘no’ when you need to. If you are supporting a loved one with cancer it’s important to know your own limits. Now is a good time to call in your favours so letting others help you and acknowledging what you can’t do will take the pressure off. Remember that resources like the Irish Cancer Society (ICS) and local support groups are there to help not only the patient but those who support him or her.Be practical. Avoid vague offers like ‘let me know if I can do anything’, and instead be specific and practical about how you might be able to help. ‘I can collect the kids on Tuesdays and Thursdays’ or ‘I can bring you to the hospital on Fridays’ are clear, solid offers that you’re more likely to be taken up on.One of the surprising ways to manage stress is by trying to stop wanting things to be different from how they are right now. We tend to cause ourselves additional suffering simply by wanting things to be different. Allowing yourself permission to be who you are in this moment is likely to be more helpful in the long term.Try to focus on today, this moment not yesterday or the future. A diagnosis like cancer propels our minds into the future or back to the past. Simply bringing attention to your breath can help. Just take one mindful breath.The tips coincide with the Irish Cancer Society’s Daffodil Day, which takes place on Friday, 22 March.For more information on these services, or for advice on any other aspect of cancer, call the National Cancer Helpline on Freefone 1800 200 700 or go to the Society’s website, www.cancer.ie.Read: New research shows brain tumours can be killed with anti-nausea drug > More: Terminal cancer patient runs marathon and wins… while pushing his daughter in a buggy >last_img read more

The corporations’ total donations ranged from $106,340 to Cummings’ total of $34.5 million.Granite Telecommunications and Partners HealthCare System landed the second and third spots, respectively.“The level of giving we engage in each year is made possible, in large part, thanks to the more than 2,000 leasing clients who choose to locate their businesses within the Cummings portfolio,” said Eric Anderson, president of Cummings Properties.Most of the buildings managed by Cummings Properties are owned, debt-free, by Cummings Foundation and operated for its sole benefit. All of the rental profits from those buildings support local nonprofits, primarily through the Foundation’s two signature grant programs.The “$100K for 100” program awards 100 grants of $100,000 each to Greater Boston nonprofits each year.

In These Four Texas Counties No One Voted In The Democratic Primary

first_img Share Ariel Min/The Texas TribuneVote sign outside of Austin City Hall, July 31, 2012.Voter turnout in Tuesday’s runoffs was abysmal. Fewer than 450,000 Texans cast ballots in the race, compared to 1 million that voted in the Democratic primary.That trend was particularly clear in four small, rural counties – King, Lynn and Hall counties in Northwest Texas and McMullen County in South Texas – where not a single person voted in the Democratic runoffs. Each county had only one matchup on their May 22 ballots: the gubernatorial race between former Dallas County sheriff Lupe Valdez and Houston businessman Andrew White.“I was surprised,” said Kendra Mergele, the elections clerk for McMullen County. “I expected maybe one or two people to show up … but we’re primarily a Republican county.”The same thing happened in Hall, King and Lynn counties — all of which are also Republican-leaning. But the fact that no one came to cast a ballot in these small towns wasn’t a shock to all local officials.“It’s typical that people don’t show up to the polls on runoff election days,” said Jammye Timmons, the county and district clerk for King County.Turnout for the runoffs was always expected to be low: Just 16 percent of the eligible voting population cast a ballot for the March 6 primaries, and typically half of the voters who cast a ballot in the primaries show up to a subsequent runoff.“This is pretty much the norm on these kinds of elections there,” said Mylina Normand, the deputy clerk for Hall County. “We haven’t had much of an interest in [runoff elections] here.”During the March 6 primaries, vote totals for Hall, King, Lynn and McMullen counties were also low. Here’s the number of people who cast a ballot for governor in either of the Republican or Democratic primaries in March: 448 in Hall County, 61 in King County, 985 in Lynn County and 153 in McMullen County. Republicans overwhelmingly outvoted Democrats in all four counties, according to state records.In Sterling County, which has a population of roughly 1,000, only nine people cast a ballot in a runoff election, according to Sonya Venzor, the county’s deputy clerk: two early voters, three election day voters and four who cast mail-in ballots.Sterling County had two runoff races: the Democratic gubernatorial match up between Valdez and White and a Republican race for Justice of the 3rd Court of Appeals. Venzor said all nine ballots cast were in the Republican runoff.“For runoffs and statewide races, this is typical,” Venzor said. “If it’s a local runoff for our county, we have a lot of people show up because that race directly affects them. … Usually we have more voters, but yesterday’s [turnout] was low.”Sam Taylor, a spokesman with the Texas Secretary of State, said his office was not aware of any counties that did not hold a Democratic primary runoff election. He added that it’s normal for counties to have no runoffs on the Republican side because races only go to a runoff if no candidate in a primary receives at least 50 percent of the votes plus at least one additional vote.“Since there was no statewide race on the Republican side, several counties did not have Republican primary runoff elections because the candidates in primary races in those counties received a majority vote, thus precluding a runoff,” Taylor said. “On the Democratic side, every county had at least one primary runoff election since there was a statewide race on the Democratic ballot.”In 2012, when a Republican fight for an open U.S. Senate seat led to a runoff between Ted Cruz and David Dewhurst, two rural Texas counties – Sterling and  Oldham – opted to not hold runoffs at all, despite having hosted the primaries weeks earlier. The Texas Secretary of State’s office said at the time that those counties had violated the Election Code.last_img read more

Protesters responded by taking a back route to reach the embassy compound where they met police with tear gas.

A police spokesman couldn’t be reached for comment to see if they had actually been arrested.A second group of about 600 people led by opposition leader Maryse Narcisse placed a flower Friday morning in a school yard to mark the anniversary of an election day massacre 26 years ago.Some of the protesters displayed banners supporting former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide and his Lavalas Family party, which Narcisse leads.Haiti has seen a spike in protests in recent months, with a few of them turning violent.Demonstrators have objected to the rising cost of living, government waste and corruption, and the long delay of legislative and local elections.Aristide’s political party has said it wants to run in the elections for which there’s still no date.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

Someday and its really not too far away Larry F

first_imgSomeday, and it’s really not too far away, Larry Fitzgerald will no longer be an Arizona Cardinal.And who knows, maybe he will be a Seattle Seahawk or a New England Patriot or a Minnesota Viking or retired.The point is, sooner or later every player moves on. There are no exceptions. Sports can be a tough business, but it is a business. Thursday’s news that Darnell Dockett had left the Cardinals for the San Francisco 49ers came as a bit of a surprise to some. Top Stories Though the Cardinals released Dockett less than a week ago because they did not want to pay him a $6.8 million salary, it was believed — in part because of Dockett’s own comments last year when Karlos Dansby left for the Cleveland Browns — that the defensive lineman would not jump ship to the highest bidder.But while it has been reported he gave the Cardinals an opportunity to match the offer made by the 49ers, he clearly chose the team that offered the best financial package. Oh, and a chance to play the Cardinals twice a season.Can you blame him? Should you blame him? Not really. Dockett, who will be 34 when the 2015 season begins, still thinks he has something left in the tank. The 49ers must agree, otherwise they would not have offered him the kind of contract that they did.But at the same time, the Cardinals are not in the wrong for allowing this to happen.Remember, there is a difference between losing a player and letting one go.Back in the day, the Cardinals used to lose players — Tim McDonald, Ken Harvey, Jamir Miller, Simeon Rice — nowadays they’re the ones making the call. It happened with Adrian Wilson in 2013, Dockett in 2015 and Fitzgerald in the future. For the longest time, the Cardinals did not really have anyone worth keeping around for a decade or longer, players whom the fan base was proud to call their own. Comments   Share   But their paths diverged, and this is the result. In fact, it was inevitable. Things have improved, though, and now the team has had some of those guys. Which, of course, means they have to move on from them at some point.Hey, it’s better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all, right?If you’re a Cardinals fan, while it will sometimes be painful to watch, them ending on the team’s terms should be as comforting as anything as the organization moves forward.It is often said that it is better to let a player go one year too early than one year too late, and the NFL’s best teams seem to have a knack for doing just that. You rarely see the Pittsburgh Steelers hand out a third contract, and hell, the New England Patriots just cut Vince Wilfork, a franchise stalwart since 2004.It’s how things work.In the coming days and weeks, and then again when Dockett returns to Arizona to play against the Cardinals, you will likely hear plenty of discussion about loyalty — or a lack of — in sports. But the truth is a player need only be loyal to himself, just as a team need only be loyal to its cause.Often times their goals align and what you get is a partnership that can be very fruitful, just as the one between Dockett and the Cardinals has been since he was selected in the third round of the 2004 NFL Draft out of Florida State.center_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more
