Yes, these ladies are offering up a hilarious take on everyday life. “Some of them do come from our lives,” Whalen says about the realistic feel of the sketches. Browne adds that while “some of our sketches are a little more silly or out there,” the women have always tried to “start out with something that’s true.” Even some of the more “out there” sketches like a space mission to Mars all start in some form of reality. “Obviously none of us have ever been to Mars, but we know about lying on your resume to appear better or try to get something you feel would be otherwise unattainable,” explains Taylor. It’s those roots that really take the sketches on Baroness to another level for us.CBCIt really showcases TorontoThe sketches on Baroness were shot 100 per cent on location which means the viewer is really taken on a tour of Toronto thanks to these ladies. The on location shoots not only highlighted the city, but it meant for an accelerated shooting pace for the women. “When you have to change hair, makeup, costume, location and everything for every sketch it was a like a white-knuckle ride for us,” says Taylor. MacNeill adds that “we were just running from sketch to sketch and I was amazed how fast we’d transform from one character to another.” So while being on location definitely adds visually to the show, and gives a fresh feeling to all of the sketches, there may have been some other benefits as well. It’s easy to miss out on new television series out there during the summer and who can blame you? The sun is shining and it’s finally warm, so most of us are out and about enjoying the outdoors. However, we here at The TV Junkies wanted to let you know that you may have missed a reason to take a breather, come on inside, relax and enjoy that AC for awhile.For the past five weeks Baroness Von Sketch Show on CBC has been making us laugh and laugh HARD. The all-female, single-camera sketch comedy series has us belly laughing at its many insightful and true to life sketches that are jam packed into each half hour episode. Sketch comedy veterans Carolyn Taylor, Meredith MacNeill, Aurora Browne and Jennifer Whalen all serve as writers, stars and executive producers of the comedy series.Before the Baroness Von Sketch Show season finale airs Tuesday, July 19 at 9:30 p.m. we thought we’d take a quick minute to let you know why this series is one you don’t want to miss. In fact, we’ve went ahead and compiled a list of reasons why you should be watching these ladies. Oh and don’t worry about the fact that Season 1 is almost over. You can catch up in no time, as all episodes are available online at CBC’s website. Also, if you’re in the US then check out sketches from the show on CBC Comedy’s YouTube channel.It’s grounded in reality Advertisementlast_img read more

first_img(Photo courtesy of Nick Illauq)By Kent Driscoll APTN National News Clyde River/Kanngiqtugaapik, Nunavut–More than 300 people in the small Baffin Island community of Clyde River, Nunavut, took to the streets Wednesday in protest of proposed seismic testing off the eastern shore of Baffin Island.Seismic testing is where loud sonic guns are fired into the water and the echo helps to determine what resources are available under the seabed, typically oil.The National Energy Board announced that the proposed testing has been delayed until 2015, but that didn’t limit the enthusiasm or turnout.There are only 1,000 people who live in Clyde River and nearly one third of them turned up Wednesday afternoon for a march around the community’s Ring Road.Like in many communities across the country, Clyde River residents believe seismic testing will injure the sea mammals they depend on for food.Highly isolated, and lowly populated, Clyde River has some of the highest food costs in Canada.Former MLA David Iqaqrialu was one of the loudest voices at the rally and believes seismic testing will hurt his people.“We’re alive, we eat them (sea animals). I don’t want them to get hurt. We live here, Inuit. The animals live here too,” said Iqaqrialu.Clyde River’s Mayor Jerry Natanine has been one of the leaders and organizers fighting the testing. He’s firm in his belief seismic testing will not help his citizens.“I’m very proud. I’m very very proud of my community, they’re sticking up for themselves and for other Inuit”, said Natanine.The five-year project to map the seabed of Baffin Bay will now start in 2015 and last for five years. It will map the entire Baffin Bay – the body of water between Greenland and Baffin read more

first_imgCALGARY, A.B. – TransCanada has announced construction and has been placed into service the Northwest Mainline Loop-Boundary Lake pipeline.The pipeline connects natural gas from Northwest Alberta and Northeast B.C. to the NGTL system.  The 2017 Expansion Program added approximately 230 kilometres (km) of new pipeline and additional compression facilities and increased the NGTL System capacity by about 500 million cubic feet per day.“We continue to focus on optimizing the competitiveness of the NGTL System and services and expanding our established transportation network to connect growing volumes of Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin natural gas to markets across North America,” said Tracy Robinson, TransCanada’s senior vice-president and general manager, Canadian Gas Pipelines. “Projects like the 2017 NGTL Expansion program demonstrate our strong focus on future growth opportunities for producers, and we are working with industry to address their needs for long-term, safe and reliable transportation service.” The 2017 Expansion Program is part of TransCanada’s commitment of more than $7 billion in near-term growth capital to the NGTL System that will, subject to regulatory approvals, allow the company to increase its delivery capacity of clean-burning natural gas on the system by 2.5 billion cubic feet per day by 2021. The NGTL System is an extensive natural gas pipeline system in Western Canada that is comprised of approximately 24,320 km of pipeline and associated facilities.last_img read more

Elgin Avenue Public School in Simcoe could have a date with the wrecking ball now that the province has invited a proposal to build a new school there.The Grand Erie District School Board had plans for an $8.7-million renovation two years ago. Plans were to expand Elgin Avenue PS, close West Lynn Public School on the south side of Simcoe, and relocate students from the latter to the expanded campus.However, the project was suspended last year when the actual cost of the renovation came in at $14.7 million. GEDSB couldn’t afford that and opted instead for the status quo.GEDSB reactivated the plan Monday in response to the Ministry of Education inviting a new proposal.“The old school would be demolished,” Rafal Wyszynski, the board’s treasurer and superintendent of business, said in a report to trustees. “Students would require temporary accommodation plans for the entire construction period. West Lynn would be closed and sold once the new school is constructed.”The board is pursuing this strategy because of declining enrolment in Simcoe. As well, the aging campuses require frequent, expensive repairs. Elgin Avenue PS was built in 1947 while West Lynn was built in 1953.Trustee Don Werden is guardedly optimistic about this development. He cautioned that the board is some distance from receiving the required funding.“There is progress,” Werden said Tuesday. “It’s hurry up and see what the government does. We are cautiously optimistic. You’re never 100 per cent sure with the province until it’s done.”Before the board realized there was a significant funding shortfall, plans for Elgin Avenue involved the construction of a new gymnasium, two kindergarten classes and two new classrooms. There were also plans to make the building handicapped-accessible and improve ventilation and air circulation.GEDSB adopted and discarded several options before shelving the project last year. Once the funding shortfall became apparent, a board committee suggested closing Elgin Avenue and making modifications instead to West Lynn that were within the GEDSB’s means.Before the Elgin project was suspended, plans were to house students from there in portable classrooms at Lynndale Heights Public School on Donly Drive North. As it happened, the status quo prevails while the board and the Ministry of Education decide what to do next.“The school is safe,” Werden said. “But in the long-term the building has to be replaced. You can’t continue to pour money into these old buildings. I’m not concerned about the kids. They are in a safe place and in a good learning environment.”Based on last year’s enrolment, combining Elgin Avenue PS with West Lynn would create a school with 506 students. Last year, Lynndale Heights was the largest public school in Simcoe with 430 read more

The United Nations refugee agency today said that its offices in Lebanon, Turkey, Jordan and Iraq have reported increases this week in the number of refugees from Syria.”UNHCR data, which primarily reflects those among the refugee community who have registered or are in the process of being registered, shows a total population of 146,667 people as of August 9,” a spokesperson for the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), Adrian Edwards, told a media briefing in Geneva.He added, “In several countries we know there to be substantial refugee populations who have not yet registered.”Syria has been wracked by violence, with an estimated 17,000 people, mostly civilians, killed since the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad began some 17 months ago.Over recent days, there have been reports of an escalation in violence in many towns and villages, as well as the country’s two biggest cities, Damascus and Aleppo, with the latter reportedly the centre of intense combat between Government and opposition forces, involving both aerial bombardments and heavy weaponry.According to UNHCR, in Turkey, the refugee population now stands at 50,227 people, with more than 6,000 new arrivals recorded this week alone. Many of these are from Aleppo and surrounding villages, but others are from Idlib and Latakia. While the main flow is into Turkey, around 8,000 people returned home voluntarily during July mainly to villages in Syria’s Idlib area, UNHCR noted.On 6 August, the Turkish Government opened a new camp at Akcakale, a district in the country’s south-east. According to the refugee agency, it has also announced its intention to double its overall reception capacity from the current 50,000 people to 100,000 people, with the construction of as many as thirteen additional sites. Currently refugees are hosted in nine camps, with women and children accounting for 72 percent of the population.In Iraq, there are now 13,587 refugees, with most arrivals this past week in the Kurdistan region.In the Kurdistan area, one third of the refugees are being housed in a camp at Domiz and others are living with the community, while another camp is being considered near Rabia at Al-Kasis. A growing number of Iraqis are also returning from Syria, including 2,993 who have come back since the start of August. Since mid-July, 23,228 Iraqis have left Syria to return home. In Jordan, the number of refugees has reached 45,869 people, with 3,891 of these having arrived so far in August. Of the registered population, most have come from the Dara’a or Homs areas of Syria.In Lebanon, 36,841 Syrian refugees are now either registered or assisted, but many thousands who have recently arrived in Lebanon are not yet registered with UNHCR. Information campaigns and the dissemination of the refugee agency’s registration hotline continue in border villages to encourage newly arrived families in need of protection or assistance to come forward and register. read more

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Building on the success of its online Modern Greek program at tertiary level, Flinders University is moving to develop learning modules suitable for language students in South Australian primary and secondary schools.Professor Michael Tsianikas, director of Flinders University’s LOGOS Australian Centre for Hellenic Language and Culture, said LOGOS is seeking funding to support the initiative, which could eventually be extended to schools nationally.The plans gained momentum with the recent visit to Flinders by Associate Professors Aspasia Hatzidakis and Giannis Spandidakis from the Centre of Migration and Intercultural Studies at the University of Crete, which is a pioneer of online Greek language teaching.The two academics presented a well-attended seminar at Flinders highlighting a new electronic learning environment for the study of Modern Greek funded by the European Union that allows students and teachers to engage in interactive and multimodal learning tasks promoting language learning.This effort gives teachers and students the opportunity to become part of a community of learning through global learning networks and to use what they have learned in creative ways, said Professor Tsianikas, who went on to state that the ongoing collaboration between LOGOS and the University of Crete aims to create a cohesive progression of Modern Greek language and culture learning for all levels of study from junior primary to tertiary levels.“In designing online courses for Australian schools, we need to consider local curriculum and assessment requirements, and we would also want to give the learning immediacy by adapting materials to the Australian cultural context,” Professor Tsianikas said.“We have evidence of a strong demand for such a program, and plans for an online course have been greeted with enthusiasm by language teachers in South Australia and beyond.”The director of LOGOS said the schools program would build on Flinders’ leading role as a an online language provider: the tertiary program in Modern Greek is now available at Charles Darwin and Griffith universities as well as South Australia’s three universities, and also to anyone else interested in studying Greek online, nationally and internationally.“This is the best national solution for Modern Greek – and other languages – in order to make languages available to everybody, everywhere and at any given time,” he stated.last_img read more

first_imgA cashier displays the new 2000 Indian rupee banknotes inside a bank in Jammu, November 15, 2016 (representational image). Tamilnad Mercantile Bank (TMB) is known for paying liberal bonus shares and dividend to shareholders.Reuters fileBanks are hogging the limelight these days, thanks to the demonetisation drive that has seen a surge among people to deposit legally invalid Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes within the deadline and withdraw new notes. Even as the spotlight remains on banks, here is one private sector lender that stock market investors and bankers would be curious for different reasons.We are talking about Tamilnad Mercantile Bank (TMB), the Thoothukudi-based private sector bank founded in May 1921. Thoothukudi was earlier known as Tuticorin.First, the latest buzz about TMB. The 95-year-old bank recently came out with an advertisement seeking applications from candidates to replace H S Upendra Kamath as its MD and CEO. The job is on contractual basis for three years and offers a remuneration package of Rs 45 lakh per annum, besides perks. The last date for application is December 7, 2016.Kamath, former chairman and managing director of Bengaluru-based state lender Vijaya Bank, was appointed in July 2012 for a three-year term.Now, some information that would deliver a pleasant shock to stock market investors, especially those who hold shares in companies that pay a huge dividend and regular, liberal bonus shares.TMB issued bonus shares in the ratio of 500:1 (500 equity shares for every one Rs 10 share held) to its eligible shareholders, for which the record date was May 25, 2016.If that sounds unbelievable, here is more. TMB paid an interim dividend at the rate of 14,000 percent, or Rs 1,400 per equity share, for the financial year 2015-16, followed by a second interim dividend of 4 percent.In 2014-15, the bank paid Rs 1,600 per share as dividend in two instalments, same as in 2013-14.Financial performance at a glanceSome of the figures are mind-boggling, to say the least. In 2015-16, TMB ended up with earnings per share (EPS) of Rs 14,138 and a net profit of Rs 402.16 crore. The net interest income (NII) was Rs 1,044 crore.The book value per share rose to Rs 1,03,656 as of March 31, 2016, from Rs 91,203 at the end of the preceding fiscal. The per-employee business was Rs 12.48 crore and the profit per employee was Rs 9.48 lakh in 2015-16.The gross and net non-performing assets of the bank stood at 1.86 percent and 0.89 percent, respectively, as of March 31, 2016. The bank’s reserves stood at Rs 2,941 crore.The bank was established by Nadars, a community in Tamil Nadu, as The Nadar Bank Ltd. in 1921 and was later renamed as Tamilnad Mercantile Bank on November 26, 1962.In its first year, it earned a net profit of Rs 6,984 and paid 6 percent dividend to its shareholders.The bank has about 500 branches across India. It has projected to have 511 branches and 1,150 ATMs at the end of the current fiscal. The bank was in the news in January this year over the proposed IPO of its shares to unlock value.

His swing was as sweet as it was lethal. In his prime, Griffey effortlessly patrolled center field at the Kingdome, robbing opposing hitters of sure home runs and extra base hits.Unfortunately, the back 9 of Griffey’s career was peppered with a series of nagging injuries that rendered his production inconsistent and took away his unique magic.

first_imgThe 35-year-old man who abducted two 11-year-old school boys last September from their school in Larnaca was sentenced to 16 years in prison on Wednesday for what the court ruled was a particularly heinous, unprecedented crime.Giorgos Nicolaou from Larnaca pleaded guilty to four charges concerning abduction of a minor with the intention of unjustly detaining them and drugging a person with the intention of committing a felony.His sentence was announced by the Larnaca criminal court during a very brief hearing, behind closed doors.Nicolaou had abducted the pupils on September 25 by pretending to be a new teacher at the school and asking a group of boys for help to carry some books. The two boys, who are friends, volunteered.Acting on a tip from a member of the public, police later found the two children in the residence of a 35-year-old man, not far from their school.It later emerged that the boys had been given sedatives in lemonade to keep them quiet. They were examined by doctors who did not find any signs of abuse.In an announcement the court said that the offence of drugging a person is punishable up to life imprisonment while abduction up to seven years in prison.It said that it has not come across a similar case in Cyprus’ case law concerning abduction and drugging of the victim. Prosecution told court the intention of the accused was to demand €30,000 in ransom and presented relevant handwritten notes.This was a case without any precedent to provide some guidance as to the weight of the penalty, court said.“There are multiple and extremely serious aggravating factors that classify the offences committed by the accused as particularly heinous and outrageous by way of his insidious mode of action … against two minors.”The accused was not acting spontaneously; instead, the evidence indicated that he had planned the abduction, court said, adding it did not accept that the 35-year-old was acting under the influence of medication.“Everything the accused thought of, organised and did demanded clarity of thought, programming but also putting together and assessing various data,” the court said. This was neither a frivolous act, nor a drug-led crime since he admitted he had planned the crime a few days prior to the incident.The court also said that the actions of the accused, were “ terrible, abominable and abhorrent criminal behaviour”.The court said it was particularly concerned that Nicolaou had administered a drug that was extremely dangerous to children with such severe reactions as narcosis, while overdose in people over 18 can cause coma, even death.The risks concerning the drug administration also consisted of potential ingestion, with the risk of leakage into the lungs, it said. The children risked losing their lives.With regard to drugging children and the ensuing consequences, court said that it “constitutes an extreme measure of humiliation of the worst kind that could happen to a person, let alone young minors.”Another factor was that he had kept the children for seven hours which cannot be considered a short period of time given the concern of the children’s parents but also the time the children had been drugged.“Drugging children constitutes a form of violence, abuse but also torture,” it said.The fact that he did not or was not able to ask for ransom was not a mitigating factor, court said, since he did drug the children and held them as hostages aiming to demand ransom.“The offences the accused committed were especially brutal and unlawful and completely socially unacceptable and condemnable,” it said, adding that his actions shocked the entire island.The incident, the court said, alerted the public, the media and emergency services and the public’s help was extremely valuable in solving the case.The imposition of a rigorous and deterrent penalty was inevitable and imperative, it said.This case is one of the first, if not the first of its kind tried before Cypriot courts, the announcement said, and the sentence ought to reflect the weight of the accused’s actions, the multiple consequences suffered by the children and their families and the impact on society in general.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.
