An Ontario woman is suing her former common-law partner for allegedly denying that the couple had won $6 million in a provincial lottery before claiming the full prize for himself.Denise Robertson’s lawsuit against Maurice Thibeault and the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation alleges the winning ticket was purchased with the understanding that any winnings would be split between the two parties.Robertson’s statement of claim alleges Thibeault kept up a long-standing tradition and purchased a ticket for the Sept. 20, 2017 draw, but later denied that it was a winner.Days later, she alleges he packed up his belongings, left their home and tried to redeem the winning ticket. The OLG has since paid Thibeault half the prize while the rest remains in legal limbo.Robertson’s suit accuses Thibeault of breach of trust and unjust enrichment and seeks the roughly $3 million that would represent half the winnings from the lottery ticket, plus an additional half a million dollars in aggravated damages. She is asking that a jury hear her civil suit.Representatives of OLG declined to offer specific comment on the suit, but Thibeault’s lawyer Richard Pollock said his client denies there was ever an agreement in place with his former partner.Pollock said Thibeault has readily complied with an OLG investigation into the matter and criticized Robertson for not taking part in an agency arbitration process to resolve the dispute.“There’s a statement of claim, and there is the truth,” Pollock said in a telephone interview. “And the truth is that my client has participated with the OLG investigation in every respect, including offering to take a polygraph examination.”Pollock added that Thibeault had gone through with the polygraph and passed “with flying colours.”Robertson’s lawyer Steven Pickard said his client decided to pursue a lawsuit in lieu of the arbitration process, arguing a court procedure would give both parties a better opportunity for a full investigation and fair hearing.“The jury is critical in this,” Pickard said. “I think this is a case where the public and the community needs to weigh in and say what they think is appropriate and what’s acceptable in society.”Robertson’s statement of claim alleges that she and Thibeault regularly bought lottery tickets together throughout their nearly two-year-long common-law relationship, with both members of the couple purchasing or paying for the tickets at different times.The statement said both Robertson and Thibeault loved muscle cars and dreamed of purchasing a vehicle each, a piece of large country property near their home in Chatham, Ont., and a shop in which they could indulge their shared hobby. The statement of claim said both parties had an understanding that they would split any winnings that came from their lotto purchases.On Sept. 20, 2017, the OLG announced that a $12 million prize was to be split between two tickets — one purchased in Quebec, the other in Chatham.The statement of claim said Robertson texted Thibeault urging him to check whether their ticket was among the winners. He agreed to do so, but later told both Robertson and some of their mutual friends that they had not won anything, the statement alleges.Three days later, Robertson said Thibeault told her he was driving to London, Ont., for a granite installation job. When Robertson got home from work, however, the statement of claim alleged she found he had packed up his belongings and left their home.“When Denise looks back, she recalls that he did approximately 15 loads of laundry of all his clothes the night prior, and didn’t put them into the drawers and closets, as if they was preparing to pack up and leave,” the document said.Later that week, Robertson alleges she got word from a mutual friend that Thibeault had sent a text to his boss announcing the end of his relationship, giving in his notice and displaying a picture of the winning ticket.Robertson sought an injunction preventing the OLG from paying out the full amount. In January, the corporation paid Thibeault half of the $6 million prize, since that sum was not in question.OLG said it intended to pay the remaining money “into court,” but said it could not offer further comment.
Kenneth JacksonAPTN National NewsThe RCMP has confirmed to APTN National News that it has launched an investigation on Keeseekoose First Nation in Saskatchewan after two elders came forward providing a stack of financial documents.The investigation is in the early stages said Sgt. Rob Laurent of the RCMP’s Yorkton detachment.“We do have an investigation that is ongoing,” said Laurent.Laurent confirmed the investigation is based on complaints made from elders and the documents they provided.Elders Frances Musqua, 70, and Seraphine Straightnose, 71, met with Laurent Aug. 21 and provided him with over 150 pages of financial documents, including receipts and records of large cheques connected the band’s co-manager Edwin Chalupiak and his Regina-based companies Dynamic Management Solutions and Chalupiak and Associates, as well as the band’s director of operations Chris Lafontaine.Chalupiak and Lafontaine have refused to answer questions from APTN citing confidentiality but Chalupiak said the council has launched its own investigation into how “confidential” documents were leaked from the band office.He claimed to have spoken to Laurent and copied the officer on an email to APTN.“He also indicated to me that neither (Dynamic) Management Solutions Inc. or Chalupiak & Associates is under investigation,” wrote Chalupiak. “Any reference to the investigation involving these entities will be misleading, and these entities will suffer damages due to the reporting of incorrect information.”APTN tried to confirm Chalupiak’s comments with Laurent but he didn’t respond to a message left at his office or an email. He also didn’t respond to Chalupiak’s email.Straightnose said she called Laurent and told APTN the officer confirmed he spoke to Chalupiak but it’s against RCMP policy to confirm who is, or not, a subject of an investigation.Straightnose first went to the RCMP after she learned the band’s director of operations had cut two large cheques while the band membership was celebrating Treaty Days on May 17-18, where each member gets a symbolic $5.The one cheque was for $124,944 and the other $50,000 according to documents provided to APTN.There are records of other large cheques and receipts for band membership assistance and housing repairs included in the RCMP documents.“Somebody said they were making cheques on Treaty Day. That’s what really upset me,” Straightnose told APTN, as to why she went to the RCMP.Laurent said because of the large volume of documents the RCMP intends to ask Indigenous Affairs to launch a financial review of the band to assist the investigation.“That is going to be one of the avenues of the investigation we’re going at. It’s just I haven’t gotten to that part, yet,” he said.Keeseekoose First Nation is nearly 300 kilometres northeast of Regina and about 700 people live on reserve according to Indigenous Affairs.The complaint to the RCMP was the boiling point of frustration brewing in the months prior over Chalupiak and Lafontaine.Chalupiak was brought on to be the band’s co-manager, or recipient-appointed advisor, on Nov. 1, 2015 as INAC found the band to be in default of its finances. A contract was signed with Chalupiak’s company Dynamic Management Solutions which gave the company primary authority over finances.The deal provided Dynamic $10,000 a month, plus expenses.In a separate contract, Lafontaine is paid approximately $15,000 a month.Soon after the band council signed the contract with Dynamic, seven members of council told APTN their wages were scaled back and in the summer of 2016, the council of 12 was effectively laid off by Chalupiak for several months, while Chief Lyndon Musqua continued to be paid.By the fall of 2016, Musqua and several councillors wanted Chalupiak and Lafontaine gone according to recordings of meetings provided to APTN, along with interviews with several of the councillors and Musqua. But on April 24, 2017, seven councillors agreed to extend Chalupiak and Lafontaine’s contracts in band council resolutions (BCRs) signed by the councillors in Chalupiak’s Regina office.Musqua was not present at the meeting and claims the meeting was illegal because the band’s custom election act stipulates all meetings have to be called by the chief.Musqua was able to have those BCRs rescinded in May, which was when Lafontaine had the large cheques made out at the band office during Treaty Days.The description on the cheques, according to documents from the band office, said the one for $50,000 was for breaching Lafontaine’s contract, and the other paid out Lafontaine’s salary for the year in advance.Musqua said he tried to determine if the cheques were cashed and called the Bank of Montreal to find out.However, staff at the bank said they weren’t authorized to give the chief any information and could only speak to Dynamic.This all played out during a council meeting on June 20 with Chalupiak and Lafontaine in attendance. The meeting was audio recorded and provided to APTN.“I still got no clarity if the cheques going around were cashed or not,” says Musqua during the meeting. “I asked if they were cashed. Show us.”Later in the meeting, Chalupiak says the cheques were voided, while Lafontaine says the cheques were made as a “lesson” of the consequences the band would face if they breached his contract.“The simple fact they were made – the intent was there – is disturbing enough,” Musqua says. “That’s what upsets me.”The next month, Chalupiak’s contract was renewed for another year by nine councillors.Then Straightnose went to the RCMP with the support of Musqua.“I am not going to back down. I’m not,” she said.Contact Kenneth here: email@example.com
He mentioned that the “mischievous and malafide reports” were utterly baseless and false, and seemed intended to create misunderstanding between the two leaders as well as damage the cordial relations between the two friendly neighbours. The President apprised the Indian Prime Minister of the urgent steps taken by him personally and the Government of Sri Lanka to publicly reject these reports. In this context, he also recalled his meeting with the High Commissioner of India to Sri Lanka today morning. The President also stated that he regards the Prime Minister as a true friend of Sri Lanka, as also a close personal friend.He stressed that he greatly valued the mutually beneficial ties between India and Sri Lanka, and remained steadfast to work with the Prime Minister for futher strengtheing them. President Maithripala Sirisena telephoned Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi today in what was seen as a damage control attempt after a media report stated that Sirisena had accused RAW of being involved in a plot to kill him.Modi’s office said that the President of Sri Lanka stated that he categorically rejected the reports in sections of the media about him alluding to the involvement of India in any manner whatsoever in an alleged plot to assassinate the President and a former Defence Secretary of Sri Lanka. The Prime Minister appreciated the prompt steps taken by the President and his Government to firmly refute the malicious reports by publicly clarifying the matters.He also reiterated India’s emphasis on ‘neighbourhood first’ policy and the priority the Government of India and he personally attach to developing even stronger all-round cooperation between the two countries.

Numerous participants in today’s debate advocated adherence to existing UN anti-terrorism treaties as well as the elaboration of new legal instruments to fight the menace. There was also broad support among the more than 20 speakers for the recently adopted Security Council resolution which lays out wide-ranging strategies to combat international terrorism. In addition, several participants put forward new proposals for galvanizing worldwide action in this effort. In opening the debate General Assembly President Han Seung-soo of the Republic of Korea said the fight against terrorism transcended cultural and religious differences. “We must never forget that terrorism is not a weapon yielded by one civilization against another, but rather an instrument of destruction through which small bands of criminals seek to undermine civilization itself,” he said. United States Ambassador John D. Negroponte said the struggle against terrorism would be lengthy and its progress would be erratic. “Already we see heartening results through effective law enforcement around the world, but this war won’t be over until we shatter the global terrorists’ ability to share information, techniques, personnel, money, and weapons,” he said. “And as we dismantle the terrorists’ ability to leverage their resources by cross-border subterfuge, we must also shut down their activities in each and every Member State.” He added that the US did not feel alone in this effort. “In this great house of nations, we have many friends.” Speaking on behalf of the European Union (EU), Jean de Ruyt of Belgium said the EU would step up action against terrorism through a coordinated and interdisciplinary approach. Stopping the flow of funds for terrorism was a decisive aspect of the European policy, he said, pledging the EU’s full support for all measures to combat any financing of terrorist activities. For his part, South African Ambassador Dumisani S. Kumalo said his country would cooperate with all efforts to apprehend those responsible for the 11 September attacks and bring them to justice. “To the extent that the current investigations into these acts of terror may require concrete intelligence information that South Africa may have at its disposal, our security agencies will continue to co-operate with their US counterparts,” he said. Costa Rican Ambassador Bernd Niehaus stressed that the fight against terrorism must not oppress religious or ethnic minorities. “The war against terrorism does not justify the use of totalitarian methods nor does it legitimize the existence of dictatorial regimes,” he said. “On the contrary, the fight against this scourge must follow closely principles of human rights.” Ahmed Aboul Gheit, the Ambassador of Egypt, said using Islam to justify crimes against innocent people was “a cause for deep sorrow.” He also reiterated a proposal by Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to convene an international conference on terrorism, emphasizing that this would be a great contribution to combating the scourge and calling on the Assembly to adopt a resolution setting in motion preparations for the event.Mongolia’s representative, Jargalsaikhany Enkhsaikhan, stressed that his country’s participation in international conventions against terrorism was based on its firm belief that international terrorism affected all and that all States, including those not directly affected, could make a difference. Terrorists could pursue their aims in or through small and weaker States, seeing in them the ‘weak link’ in opposing or fighting terrorism, he noted. The discussion of terrorism, moved up from a later date because of the urgency of the issue, was convened at a time when the Assembly should have been holding its annual high-level debate. That debate, which annually attracts national leaders from around the world, was postponed because it would have been a drain on New York City’s security services at a time when they were already stretched while coping with the aftermath of the terrorist attacks against the World Trade Center.
“It is too easy to proclaim the virtues of multilateralism in principle, only to go your own way whenever a decision has to be taken that directly affects your citizens’ security, or the interests of a well-organized domestic lobby,” the Secretary-General said at a roundtable discussion held at the Centre d’Etudes et de Recherches Internationales de Sciences Politiques.Mr. Annan noted that there are some areas, such as international peace and security, where universal laws do need to be directly enforced by global action, but for multilateralism to work, it must be applied consistently, he added.Earlier Monday, the Secretary-General met with President Jacques Chirac of France and Foreign Minister Dominique de Villepin. In addition to discussing the return this week of UN weapons inspectors to Iraq, they spoke for over an hour on the situation in the Middle East, and African issues ranging from the Democratic Republic of the Congo to Burundi and Côte d’Ivoire, according to a UN spokesman.The Secretary-General also briefed the President on the situation in Colombia as well as his recent talks with the Presidents of Nigeria and Cameroon concerning their dispute over the Bakassi peninsula.During a luncheon which followed, their talks continued touching on Cyprus, Afghanistan, the Central African Republic, next year’s Franco-African Summit, the Global Compact and Georgia, the spokesman said.Asked afterwards by reporters about a letter sent over the weekend by Iraqi Foreign Minister Naji Sabri, the Secretary-General said the correspondence raised a number of legal objections, which would be up to the Security Council to decide. [The letter was distributed to Council members this morning in New York.]Mr. Annan also stressed that the Iraqi Government must fully cooperate with UN weapons inspectors. “This is the only way to avoid a military conflict in the region,” he said. The Secretary-General then went on to meet French Defence Minister Michèle Alliot-Marie, who talked about France’s contribution to UN peacekeeping operations, as well as about Iraq, Afghanistan and the Secretary-General’s visit last week to the Balkans.
The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) “is increasingly concerned about the fate of several Ahwazi (Iranian Arab) refugees recognized by our office in Damascus,” spokesman Ron Redmond told a news briefing in Geneva, citing the recent arrest of seven Ahwazis. Six of these are recognized by UNHCR as refugees under the 1951 Refugee Convention and one is a former refugee recently naturalized by the Netherlands. The Agency immediately raised its concerns at the highest levels, stressing that the recognised refugees should immediately be released. As a result, three have been freed but four remain in detention. “UNHCR is particularly concerned about the fate of these Ahwazis, as the Syrian authorities recently deported to Iran an Arab-Iranian Ahwazi who was recognised as a mandate refugee by UNHCR Damascus at the end of 2005 and who had been accepted for resettlement in Norway,” Mr. Redmond said. According to the Syrian Foreign Ministry, the extradition was requested by the Iranian authorities. “Extradition does not mean that a refugee or asylum seeker loses his or her international protection status. We therefore strongly appeal to both Syrian and Iranian authorities to allow the refugee to depart to Norway as scheduled,” Mr. Redmond added. Ahwazi refugees came to Iraq and Syria during various periods. Recent human rights reports have expressed concerns about the deteriorating human rights situation in Al-Ahwaz (Khuzestan) in Iran, home to nearly 2 million Iranians of Arab descent. Individuals promoting rights of the Arab people in the Ahwaz region have reportedly been targeted, and access to the region has been denied to foreign and local journalists, Mr. Redmond said. “UNHCR strongly appeals to Syria to abide by its obligations under international law and to ensure that the principle of non-refoulement is recognised,” he added. “The principle of non-refoulement prohibits states from returning refugees or asylum seekers to territories where there is a risk that their lives or freedom would be threatened on account of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion.”
“This is an opportunity for people from across the globe, regardless of their nationality or circumstances, to be part of the most important discussion of this century; the unprecedented action needed to reach the Paris Agreement targets,” said Sir David Attenborough.“I encourage everyone to take their seats and to add their voice so that the People’s Address truly represents a mix of voices from across the world,” he added.The ‘People’s Seat’ initiative, launched by the Secretariat of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), calls for inputs for the address to be delivered during the opening plenary session of the COP24, by Mr. Attenborough, on 3 December. Everyone and anyone who wants to add their message to voice the urgent need for action, can do so by using the hashtag #TakeYourSeat on Twitter. Michal Kurtyka, Secretary of State of Poland and incoming COP24 President, hailed the initiative, stressing that the conference wants to encourage “openness, listening and the full participation of civil society in global efforts to tackle climate change.”The call for global advocacy comes weeks after the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued a report showing how urgent and possible it still is to limit global warming to 1.5°C from pre-industrial levels. The report warned that if no action is taken, the world is headed towards a warming of over 3°C.The aim of the COP 24 is to agree on a collective implementation plan for the 2015 Paris Agreement, and raise ambitions to achieve its goals.The People’s Address will also trigger the launch of another initiative to engage global citizens: the ‘ActNow’ Bot via the United Nations’ Facebook Messenger account, recommending everyday actions – like taking public transport and eating less meat – and tracking the number of actions taken to highlight the impact that collective action can make on such a critical issue.
Ohio State alumnus and wrestling Big Ten Champion Lance Palmer followed his dreams and is now training for Mixed Martial Arts while coaching wrestling at Virginia Tech. This fall, Palmer heard there was a coaching position open for Virginia Tech’s wrestling team and traveled to the university the next day. Tony Robie, associate head coach for wrestling at Virginia Tech, said Palmer met the criteria the team was looking for. “Lance’s wrestling credentials speak for themselves,” Robie said. “He had a lot of success at the Division I level.” Although 23-year-old Palmer doesn’t have extensive experience in recruiting or administration, his biggest strength is his age, Robie said. “He is good at teaching our guys wrestling, getting on the mats, the physical part,” Robie said. Since he was in high school, Palmer knew he was interested in coaching. “Being in a coaching position has a lot to offer with experience and helping others achieve their goals,” he said. Aside from coaching, Palmer has also gotten involved with MMA since he graduated. He works out two to three times a day by practicing jiu-jitsu, boxing, kickboxing, sparring and other MMA training. He usually takes Saturday and Sunday off to travel with his team. “When we’re not doing wrestling, he is training,” said Kevin Dresser, head coach of the Virginia Tech wrestling team. “He is doing his mixed martial arts thing and staying sharp in the arena.” He said coaching and practicing with college wrestlers helps him train for his fights. “I see myself with a 3-0 in the MMA and helping out at VT,” Palmer said. “I can get the best of both worlds at the same time.” Robie said many successful MMA fighters have similar backgrounds to Palmer. He feels Palmer has a good shot as a fighter. “The sky is the limit,” Robie said. “He is a competitive and tough guy.” Palmer gives credit to his family members. He said they helped him get started with wrestling at a young age and pushed him to earn a full scholarship to OSU. “They have supported every decision I’ve made,” Palmer said. “A strong family base is the key to the success I’ve had so far.”
In a statement this week, the CPS announced that Tory politicians would not be facing charges in a move that dominated the day’s news bulletins. However it made no mention of the fact that a former Labour MP and their electoral agent had also been cleared. A former Labour MP was facing criminal charges over election expenses at the same time as Tory politicians but it was never made public, The Telegraph can reveal. The Crown Prosecution Service was handed police files on the Labour politician and their electoral agent earlier this year. This week the CPS decided not to bring charges but – unlike Tory politicians in a similar situation – made no public comment about the case. The revelation has triggered fresh claims that the election watchdog unfairly targeted Tory politicians and was not “politically neutral”. However sources at the Electoral Commission last night said the specific issue was a police matter and it was up to them to decide whether to go public. The so-called “Tory expenses scandal” refers to whether spending during the 2015 general election – especially on campaign buses – was counted as local or national. Candidates have a strict limit on how much they can spend on trying to get into Parliament which is distinct the amount parties can invest on campaigning nationwide. Theresa May has faced questions from critics, including SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon, as to whether she called an early election to distract from the row. This newspaper has learned that while the CPS was considering charges for more than a dozen former Tory MPs, they were also looking into the case of a former Labour MP. It is understood the case referred to the same issue – whether any laws were broken by counting local spending as a national expense – although it is thought not to involve a campaign bus. Sources at the CPS said that the case was not already in the public domain and therefore it would not have been appropriate to issue a statement. Karl McCartney, the Tory candidate who had been investigated but was told no charges would be brought this week, criticised the handling of the case. He said: “It is shocking to now learn that a Labour MP was being investigated over election expenses from the 2015 general election but that this fact was never made public by either the Electoral Commission nor CPS.”A CPS spokesperson said: “We received a file from police in respect of an allegation relating to expenses incurred by a candidate during the 2015 General Election campaign.“We have now considered the file and concluded there is insufficient evidence for any criminal charges to be brought.”END Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Just under half (46%) of respondents would like their employer to offer financial education support, according to research by Equiniti.Its survey of 6,700 savers and investors from Equiniti’s client base, also found that 49% of respondents feel that their employer does not do enough to support informed financial decisions on savings and investments.The research also found:50% of respondents first acquired shares through a workplace share scheme.58% of respondents do not save or invest as much as they would like to.19% of respondents cite uncertainty about what steps to take next as the reason for not saving or investing as much as they would like to.Phil Ainsley (pictured), managing director of employee services at Equiniti, said: “Of the people we surveyed, many of them got into investing through their employer when they joined a [workplace] share plan.“It shows that these schemes are a valuable gateway to saving and creating wealth for the longer term for many employees and, coming from the same source as their salary and pension, it’s unsurprising they look to their employer for further guidance.”
Rachel Brosnahan won a Golden Globe Sunday for her starring role in the Amazon Prime show The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, but the show didn’t follow its Emmy win for best comedy series. Nicole Rivelli Amazon didn’t have quite the prime night it had hoped for at Sunday’s 76th Golden Globes Awards, but the streaming content provider didn’t go home empty-handed either.Amazon Prime streaming shows got nominated for three biggies — best drama series, best comedy series and best limited series — for Homecoming, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and A Very English Scandal, respectively. As Gold Derby noted, Amazon stood a chance of being the first TV network since 2001 to win all three of those awards at one Golden Globes awards show. That last happened when HBO took home trophies for Six Feet Under, Sex and the City and Band of Brothers in the same night. Amazon Prime thriller Homecoming didn’t take home the Golden Globe for best drama series. Jennifer Clasen/Amazon Prime Video Instead, Amazon lost in all three categories. FX thriller The Americans beat out Homecoming for best drama series, and another FX offering, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, won over A Very English Scandal. The winning drama about Andrew Cunanan’s killing spree will stream on Netflix starting Jan. 17.While The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel won a Golden Globe for best comedy last year, this year’s award went to another streaming giant, Netflix, for The Kominsky Method, which also beat out Barry, The Good Place and Kidding. The Kominsky Method tracks acting coach Sandy Kominsky (Michael Douglas, who nabbed an acting statue) and best friend Norman Newlander (Alan Arkin) as they navigate the ups and downs of getting older. Douglas dedicated his award to his 102-year-old dad Kirk Douglas and more generally, to the alta cockers, Yiddish for old folks. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which follows a housewife turned stand-up comic in the ’50s, did take home a major honor from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Rachel Brosnahan won for best actress in a comedy, though Alex Borstein, who plays Mrs. Maisel’s marvelous manager, lost to Patricia Clarkson’s controlling mother in Sharp Objects. Netflix saw Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden win the Golden Globe for best TV drama actor for the his role in the BBC drama Bodyguard, distributed by Netflix outside the UK.Netflix is also the distributor for Roma, which won for best foreign language film and for best director for Alfonso Cuarón.Streaming giants won big at the Emmy Awards last fall, with Amazon Prime Studios and Netflix taking home 12 of the night’s 26 awards. Both services have more than 100 million people with access to their respective subscription video offerings.It wasn’t a super night for superheroes, however. While Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse won for best animated feature film, Black Panther failed to win either the best drama or best score award.We’ve reached out to both Amazon and Netflix for comment on tonight’s results.

Stay on target Kellogg’s has extended their partnership with the U.K.’s Seven Bro7hers Brewery. What started last year with a single beer has expanded into a trio of beers — all made with rejected cereal.In December we told you about the Brewery’s Throw Away IPA. The recipe (formulated with help from Brew Dog) for the unique milkshake IPA utilized Corn Flakes that were rejected for being too large, too small or overcooked.Heres a little sneak peek at our @KelloggsUK brew! Find it at @BoothsCountry stores and https://t.co/B3R5QYORtd#Sustainability pic.twitter.com/mgSivLLyNz— SEVEN BRO7HERS BREWERY (@SEVENBRO7HERS) June 14, 2019Clearly it was rell-received, because Seven Bro7hers and Kellogg’s are teaming up again. This time around Kellogg’s shipped over a generous supply of Cocoa Krispies and Rice Krispies that didn’t make the grade.Logically enough, the Cocoa Krispies (Coco Pops in some countries) found their way into a nice chocolate stout. The Rice Krispies were crafted into a double dry-hopped pale ale. Both of the new brews pack 5.5% ABV.Though Sling It Out Stout and Cast Off Pale Ale are made with discarded cereal, there’s a difference. In the recipe for Throw Away IPA, the Corn Flakes replaced some of the wheat that would’ve ordinarily been used. The Cocoa Puffs in the stout and Rice Krispies in the Pale Ale replaced malted barley. Another new twist is that beer drinkers can pick up all three of the Seven Bro7hers beers in a single pack. They’re offering a mixer with four of each of their Kellogg’s-infused creations.The company says they’re “always looking for innovative ways to use surplus food,” adding that the collaboration with Seven Bro7hers “is a fun way to repurpose non-packaged, less-than-perfect cereal.”Kellogg’s says their aim is always to convert every ounce of grain purchased into food that can be sold in stores. There will always be slightly imperfect flakes and pops, of course… so it’s cool to see the company embracing sustainability with projects like these.More on Geek.com:Butterflies Inspired and Helped Brew This Craft BeerBakery and a Brewery Turned Surplus Bagels Into BeerDogfish Head Unveils Beer That Can Develop Kodak Super 8 Film Fiber-Based Six-Pack Can Rings Offer Eco-Friendly Alternative to PlasticButterflies Inspired and Helped Brew This Craft Beer
Twenty art maestros are coming up to present a plethora of artwork at a group exhibition titled ‘Soulmate’. Curated by Renu Khera, Director of National Institute of Fine Arts, the show illustrating art as the reflection of the soul, will be held from June 1 – 4 at Visual Arts Gallery, New Delhi.The exhibition puts forth the various facets of Indian mythology, religious thoughts, vintage theme, culture, life and nature. An amalgamation of artworks by the artists of Indian origin from across the world, the exhibition features names like Sujata Bajaj, Niladri Paul Bratin Khan, Arpan Bhowmik, G Subramanian, Swati Pasari Also Read – Add new books to your shelfand Sandeep Chhatraband among others.The event will also bring together promising upcoming artists to showcase their work. “All the 20 different artists have different mediums of work and different thought processes. So to see them together under one roof is truly going to be an unforgettable experience for the spectators”, says Renu Khera, curator of the show.Bratin Khan, one of the artists and the master of traditional and folklore themes, will bring alive the themes of Indian mythology. Fragile, emotive and rich in colour, Bratin’s works use the traditional method of tempera painting, which goes back to the Indian miniatures. Seven to eight coats of transparent color are put on the surface, one after another to get a complete tone. Simple but evocative, Arpan Bhowmik’s art is a study in contrast. Bhowmik’s paintings showcase the vintage theme of a heritage city, Kolkata bringing the city and its humdrum affairs to life with his brushstrokes. Whereas, a painter and a collagist, G. Subramanian uses the medium of collage, and layers it along with acrylic paint and ink washes in brilliant hues to create mixed media works. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveNiladri Paul’s work bears ample testimony to his talent, integrity and awareness of his surrounding reality. Deriving inspiration from everyday life, he captures vividly the mood and spirit of his subjects. The young and vibrant artist from Kolkata, Swati Pasari, describes her latest collection of sculptures as ‘Celebrating Life’. Through her collection, she has made an attempt to understand her own personality and life around her. “My paintings are a reflection of my thought process. When I paint, I think and feel inner peace and beauty, serenity and calmness. So my paintings manifest these feelings. As I go along with the creations, I build on the idea of what the painting should look like”, says Swati.”They say that you have to be lost in order to be found. Every artist strives for inner peace, and art is only a method of finding inner wholesomeness”, adds Swati.

If you stick to first-party programs like Edge or News, you will get more out of Timeline than if you prefer third-party programs.You can read our full overview of Windows Timeline here.Focus AssistFocus Assist was designed to block notifications on demand or on schedule. You may use it to block notifications about new chat messages, emails, Windows Updates, and other events that you are notified about while using Windows 10 on a device.You may toggle the feature using Quick Actions or by configuring automatic rules, e.g. days and time or when playing games, to enforce it automatically.Focus Assist may prevent “updates are available” and other messages on Windows that may benefit lots of users. You benefit the most from it when you use a lot of first-party applications such as Mail.New Microsoft Edge featuresMicrosoft Edge gets several new features in the April 2018 Update. You can click on the audio icon in tabs to mute or unmute audio playback with a click, or use a full-screen distraction-free interface when reading PDFs, books or using Reading View.Other improvements include a new clutter-free printing option for cleaner printouts, support for autofill and web payment forms, and a new Grammar Tools that helps with comprehension.DictationDictation is the fourth and final feature that Mehdi highlights. Just use the new shortcut Windows-H to start dictation mode while any text field is active.The improved Dictation feature in Windows 10 will capture your thoughts quickly and accurately so that brilliant idea you just riffed on with your colleagues or the speech you’re practicing for your best friend’s wedding isn’t lost forever.Tip: make sure you run disk cleanup after the upgrade and making sure that everything works correctly to free up Gigabytes of space.Now You: What’s your take on these new features?Related articlesEnable pre-release features on Windows 10 Insider BuildsFix PCs no longer recognized in network after Windows 10 version 1803 upgradeFree up disk space automatically on Windows 10 with Storage SenseMicrosoft broke “disable web search” in Windows 10 version 1803SummaryArticle NameWindows 10 April Update rollout begins on April 30, 2018DescriptionYusuf Mehdi, the Microsoft Corporate Vice President of the Windows and Devices Group, confirmed in a new blog post on the official Windows Experience Blog that the rollout of the new feature update begins on April 30, 2018.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisement

December 15, 2015 801 Views MiT National Land Services Title Industry TRID 2015-12-15 Staff Writer The title industry is yet another piece of the mortgage industry that has felt the effects of a prosperous housing market and new regulations and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). Although the road has not been easy, title companies have managed to stay ahead of things by adapting to changes.Marc Israel, President and Chief Counsel of MiT National Land Services sat down with MReport in an interview to discuss some of the top concerns that the title industry is dealing with in today’s market.See what Israel had to say below in this exclusive interview.MReport: How do you feel about the CFPB’s ‘hot-button’ TRID regulation?Israel: I hear many people who are unhappy or complaining about either the CFPB directly or just the mere fact that we will now have more regulation in general. I think they are wrong to complain. Although not everything that the CFPB does is going to be work I do think those of us in the industry should be honest and say that there was a real crisis in this country about seven or eight years ago, that the housing industry contributed to a lot of the crisis, and that changes needed to be made.We should be big boys and girls and admit that there were some mess-ups and not complain when the government comes in and tries to straighten up some of the things that went on. The bottom line is that there is, and will continue to be more, regulation. So I think we, as an industry, should try to comply with the new rules as best we can and stop complaining and bellyaching. Of course, if CFPB insists on things that we find are not workable, we should go back to them, have a dialogue, and hopefully get into the groove where we can all coexist and fix things together as we go. Net-net, let’s just be honest and acknowledge that there are some major problems that had to be corrected.As far as TRID is concerned, I have been teaching TRID classes to real estate and settlement attorneys and other real estate professionals and there’s no question that this rule is causing, and will continue to cause, a lot of hiccups for the first few months. I think we will get through them, and if the industry finds things that are not workable, I trust that the CFPB will make adjustments. I feel that any disruption from TRID will be temporary—not a long-term issue.As an aside, I think originators are wisely also being cautious by slowing things down a bit and making sure that they don’t bite off more than they can chew with the new rules.Marc IsraelMReport: What do you think about the back and forth surrounding the TRID Grace Period? Will it happen or not?Israel: For the life of me, I cannot understand the thinking in the White House about vetoing this bill. I think it’s a major mistake and a bit of political grandstanding by the White House. Personally, from speaking to my colleagues and attending industry events, I can tell you that there are literally thousands of people who are trying really hard, in ‘good faith’ to comply with the new rules.It’s not so easy to turn an industry around and change all the software, policies and procedures, but there are a lot of people making a real effort to do so. So it seems really unfair to me to slap those people with fines and penalties in the first few months of TRID because they messed something up when they are trying in “good faith” to comply. Now, if you have a company that is not complying and intentionally violating the rules, that’s a different story. But people who are trying to comply should not be penalized and the White House should see beyond the politics and sign that common sense bill.MReport: What’s driving mortgage industry growth right now? What role does the title industry play in this growth? Five-year outlook?Israel: I am an optimist, I think the title industry is a great industry. It’s absolutely healthy. A recent earnings report for underwriters showed that three of the four big largest companies are all doing very well. My company is also thriving and growing like crazy. We are adding more business, more clients, and are looking to expand into new markets. I feel good about owning a title agency in today’s market.I think when you have this kind of regulatory shake up in any industry, what happens is that the better companies rise to the top and it shakes out the bad players. I think that regulations rightly knock out a lot of players that are not operating at the highest level and this makes the industry better for everyone. As such, regulations, over the long-term, are going to help.I don’t know where interest rates will go over the next five years, but I think that the long-term effect of CFPB regulation is going to result in a stronger, better, mortgage, real estate, and title industry. And barring some other economic factor that no one can foresee, in five years, both the title industry and the mortgage industry will be bigger and healthier. I feel positive going forward and think the industry is in really good shape.MReport: Is there room for any future regulations and improvement in the housing market on top of the load the industry has now?Israel: Yes, there is absolutely room for improvement. I cannot say what those changes are going to be but I think that as we live and breathe with these rules, it’s going to cause all sorts of changes that will come. The other change is going on all around us and will happen in our industry as well. And that is that everything is moving online. Everything is moving to websites. Everything is moving to apps. That is going to happen to us as well.MReport: Speaking of technology, how will tech fare in the future housing market?Israel: I talk a lot about technology and spend a lot of time with people who are doing all sorts of incredible things with tech in the mortgage space. There are already lenders out there that are shifting to online tech options. I am sure the big banks are not going to let tech slip by them and will jump in there as well.I think what will happen is the industry is going to move online and into the cloud which will raise its own set of issues that will need to be addressed. And, in turn, the regulators and privacy advocates will need to address these problems. That’s the story of the world—things are always changing, change creates new issues, those issues need to be addressed, and on it goes!Click here to learn more about MiT National Land Services. 5 Big TRID Challenges Title Companies Face in Commentary, Daily Dose, Government, Headlines, News Share
