Since the Montreal based engineering firm would have benefited financially from Trudeau 's efforts, the prime minister 's actions contravened the act, Ethics Commissioner Mario Dion said in a report released Wednesday in Ottawa. Trudeau is scheduled to speak to reporters at 2 p.m.The watchdog 's reprimand is a blow to Trudeau, just 10 weeks ahead of an October election, and will bring renewed focus to what has been the most damaging scandal of his Liberal Party administration. The prime minister has seen his popularity sink this year amid accusations of judicial interference, though his poll numbers had been lately recovering, as the controversy settled over the summer.

Snapchat was never designed for public broadcast, for sharing every moment with everyone. Instead, Snap was made to help people stay in touch with their closest connections, in a more intimate, and less permanent, way. That, in many ways, likely limits Snapchat's broader growth capacity, but as overall social media trends have shifted away from public sharing, with private groups and messaging now on the rise, Snap has also benefited in many ways from being ahead of the trend.And now, Snap is using that ethos as the key focus for its first global, paid media campaign, which will see Snap billboards and ads placed in across cinema, broadcast, print and digital platforms.
The court ruling settled allegations that Sara Netanyahu had misused some $100,000 in state money on lavish meals.

Ambassador Kenneth Quinn, president of the World Food Prize Foundation, says Groot helped to develop vegetable varieties with enhanced disease resistance and significantly higher yields. As the use of his seeds spread throughout the Philippines and to Thailand, Indonesia, and across Southeast Asia, farmers daily lives were uplifted and consumers benefited from greater access to nutritious vegetables.

That was less than two weeks ago, but our news cycle moves at such a brisk clip it;s easy to forget. There is no denying that on May 30, the same president who has repeatedly denied or downplayed Russia;s interference in American elections tweeted that ;I had nothing to do with Russia helping me to get elected.; While Trump apparently thought he was defending himself with that remark and later retracted it once he realized how it came across it sure sounded like Trump admitting that Russian meddling happened and conceding that he benefited from it, even if only through a Freudian slip.Whether Trump likes it or not, his presidency is inextricably linked to his unusual relationship with the Russian government. To learn more about how the Trump Russia relationship has changed history, Salon reached out to Michael McFaul, a foreign policy adviser to President Barack Obama who served as U.S. ambassador to Russia from 2012 to 2014. McFaul was also briefly in the news after the Helsinki summit last year. When Russian President Vladimir Putin asked Trump to hand over McFaul for questioning on a variety of trumped up charges, the president reportedly considered doing so. If Trump had the kind of unchecked power he wishes he did, McFaul 's life might have been in danger.

The need for similar technology in Africa is acute: According to the World Bank, the continent is home to 502 million of the world 's identity less individuals, half of the global total and roughly 40 percent of Africa 's population. The problem is worse for women, who in many African countries are critical to family finances.

A Utah man flew a small plane into his own house early Monday just hours after he had been arrested for assaulting his wife in a nearby canyon where the couple had gone to talk over their problems, authorities said. The pilot, Duane Youd, died. His wife and a child who were in the home survived despite the front part the two-story house being engulfed in flames, Payson police Sgt. Noemi Sandoval said. The crash occurred around 2:30 a.m. in Payson, a city located about 20,000 60 miles (95 kilometers) south of Salt Lake City. Investigators believe the twin-engine Cessna 525 belonged to Youd's employer and that he intentionally flew into his own house. Sandoval said he was an experienced pilot. It wasn't immediately clear who employed Youd or whether he was authorized to take the plane. It's unknown if the child in the house is related to Youd, Sandoval said. Youd, 47, was arrested about 7:30 p.m. Sunday after witnesses called police to report that he was assaulting his wife, Utah County Sheriff's Sgt. Spencer Cannon said. The couple had been drinking and had gone to American Fork Canyon to talk about problems they were having, authorities said. Youd was booked on suspicion of domestic violence and posted bail, Cannon said. Around midnight, he requested an officer escort him to his home so he could get his truck and some belongings. That occurred without incident, Sandoval said. Within hours, Youd was taking off in the plane from the Spanish Fork-Springville Airport about 15 miles, or 25 kilometers, north of his house. He flew directly to his neighborhood and smashed into his house, Sandoval said. Photos of the wreckage showed the white plane charred and in pieces in the front yard nearby an overturned and crushed car. Most of the upscale house was still intact, but heavily burned in the front. Youd and his wife bought the 2,700 square-foot house valued at nearly $400,000, in 2016 in a quiet subdivision of new homes near the foothills, county property records show. The plane barely missed power lines and other homes, Sandoval said. The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating. Online court records show that Youd agreed last month to attend marriage and family counseling sessions for six months as part of a plea agreement following an April 8 domestic violence incident in which he was charged with disorderly conduct. It is the second bizarre airplane incident in recent days. On Friday an employee stole a turboprop plane from Sea-Tac International Airport in Seattle and flew it for more than an hour before dying in a crash on an island southwest of Tacoma.

While his production of A Woman of No Importance benefited from a wonderfully warm performance by Eve Best and Kathy Burke s frothy take on Lady Windermere s Fan felt like one long French and Saunders skit, Jonathan Church s An Ideal Husband feels like it s going through the motions.It s capably played for the most part but has barely any perceptible pulse. A shame, as it 's one of Wilde s tautest plays. Government minister Sir Robert Chiltern (Nathaniel Parker) has built a career and a fortune on secrets he sold and shares purchased when he was starting out. He s being blackmailed by the scheming Mrs Cheveley (Frances Barber), who has come into possession of a letter that could ruin him.
Although the fact that snow monkeys bathe more often during winter suggests that they use the hot spring to stay warm, to date no physiological data had been collected to support this idea. Takeshita and her colleagues studied twelve adult females during the spring birth season, from April to June, and winter mating season, from October to December. They determined how much time the monkeys spent in the hot springs, and which monkeys bathed the most. The researchers also collected faecal samples during times of extreme cold and analysed the concentration of faecal glucocorticoid (fGC) metabolite present. This was done because thermoregulatory stress and the management of a body temperature is known to influence concentrations of glucocorticoids, which belong to the family of steroid hormones.The results confirmed that female snow monkeys use the hot spring more often in winter than in spring, and especially during colder weeks. Dominant females benefited from their status and spent longer time bathing, but they were also involved in more aggressive conflicts, resulting in higher energy expenditure than subordinate females. But taking a spa reduced stress hormone levels in those females. So high social status in this group of snow monkeys has a trade off between the costs of high rank position and the benefits from a hot spring, which is advantageous for conserving energy by reducing loss of body heat, and lowering stress levels.
This effort was kick started yesterday when the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, cleared the payment for the entire 12 per cent contribution for first three years for new staff.

The donation options on Nixon's campaign website, Cynthia for NY, are $10, $25, $50, $250 or "other".On her first full day as a candidate for governor, the subway system made Cynthia Nixon's point for her.
