Meet Celebrity Mom Olunike Adeliyi

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Olunike Adeliyi is a film, television and theatre actress whose resume is as diverse as she is talented. Olunike was introduced to us from her role as Leah Kerns on the popular Canadian television show, Flashpoint. Coming from a theatrical background, Olunike has gone on to play a variety of roles in films such as BOOST and Darken and television shows like Workin’ Moms. Inspired by her role as a mom, Olunike seeks to do more than make a living, but works to leave the world better than she found it. CEOMOM caught up with Olunike to talk about how she got into acting, her upcoming roles and what it means to be a working mother.Your big break was Flashpoint where you played Leah Kerns. Did you always want to be an actress?I am pretty sure I’ve always wanted to be an entertainer of some sort. I started young in my grandparents’ church in Jamaica doing a lot of performances during harvest and Easter. From there, my love for performing took on a life of its own. It was something that was fun for me to do. My grade six music teacher saw that I was very animated and a very hyper child. She suggested that I audition for the school play. I did and ended up getting the lead role in the Princess and the Dragon. l acted all through junior high and high school. When I got out of high school, I continued touring in dance troupes and doing background work. While doing theatrical work I got some inspiration from Denzel Washington who told me to focus on one thing and make it really great and the other talents will follow. He asked me if I ever thought about studying in New York. I applied and attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. Upon graduation, I came back to Toronto and everything else is history. I started in theatre because that was my educational background. At the end of the run of one of my plays, Flashpoint called me in for an audition and I nailed it. Acting is something that found me because I love it so much. It is an art form that keeps me alive and interested in humanity.You are an accomplished actress with roles in television, theatre and film. Which are you most passionate?I don’t know. If I had to choose, I think I would be most passionate about theatre, however I am passionate about all three avenues of art. They all bring different elements to the work. I love theatre, because of the writing. All of the characters are heroes and they express themselves fully. They say the things you want to say and do the things you want to do without fear of consequence. I love TV, because you get to try out different characters more frequently and learn the art of speedy dialogue and filming. If you are a recurring or a regular character you get to play with different artists every episode and support their work. It doesn’t get boring when you’re serving other artists.

Acquittal of accused in Tina Fontaines death disappoints Winnipeg police chief

first_imgThe Canadian PressWinnipeg’s police chief says he’s disappointed that a jury acquitted a man accused of killing 15-year-old teenager Tina Fontaine.Raymond Cormier was found not guilty last week of second-degree murder in the 2014 death of the teen, whose body was wrapped in a duvet cover and weighed down with rocks when it was found in the Red River.Chief Danny Smyth told the city’s police services board that he had hoped for a different outcome.He said it’s clear the jury didn’t find enough evidence to convict and he wished police could have brought forward a more compelling case.But Smyth commended the officers who he said worked hard on the case and thanked prosecutors for taking it to trial.He said Tina’s death has prompted change and pointed to Manitoba no longer housing children in care in hotels.“If not anything else, this trial provided transparency,” Smyth said Friday. “The community was able to learn about the investigation. They were able to see evidence and learn about the circumstances that led up to Tina’s death.”Tina was raised by her great-aunt, Thelma Favel, on the Sagkeeng First Nation, 120 kilometres northeast of Winnipeg. She left to visit her mother in Winnipeg at the end of June 2014 and became an exploited youth.Favel called Child and Family Services with concerns about Tina, who ran away repeatedly from a youth shelter and hotels where she was placed.She was last seen leaving a downtown hotel, where she told a private contract worker employed by child welfare that she was going to a shopping centre to meet friends.It’s not known how Tina died. A pathologist testified at the trial that the girl’s death was suspicious because of the manner in which her body was found.last_img read more

Dangerous to let viable cos close down says IBBI chief

first_imgNew Delhi: Committees of Creditors (CoCs) should provide all relevant information and share their vision for companies under the insolvency process, a senior official said Saturday as he asserted that it will be dangerous to let viable firms to close down. Amid rising number of stressed assets being referred for resolution under the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC), IBBI chief M S Sahoo said the law also gives opportunities to rectify the mistakes during the insolvency process. Also Read – Commercial vehicle sales to remain subdued in current fiscal: IcraThe objective of the law is to rescue viable companies and close down unviable ones, he said. “If due to incompetence (of market participants) the reverse happens, then it is dangerous,” Sahoo said here. The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Board of India (IBBI) Chairperson also noted that CoCs must provide all relevant information to resolution applicants so that they find interest in the companies. “Commercial decisions are not black and white. There is no mathematical formula to say that a company is unviable and another is viable. It depends on so much considerations and it depends on who is looking at it,” he noted. Also Read – Ashok Leyland stock tanks over 5 pc as co plans to suspend production for up to 15 daysSpeaking at an event, National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) Chairperson Justice S J Mukhopadhaya said that financial creditors should not play foul while going through the viability and commercial aspects of a resolution plan. Citing examples, he indicated that operational creditors should also be getting money and not just the financial creditors in a resolution process. Responding to a query on whether operational creditors are not getting their dues, Sahoo cited data till December 2018 to say that both operational and financial creditors “on average, got about 48 per cent each of their claims”. About haircuts taken by creditors, he wondered what can be done if the resolution process started very late. “Today about 370-380 companies have been ordered into liquidation. Most of them, 80 per cent, were in BIFR (Board for Industrial and Financial Reconstruction) or defunct companies. So when there is nothing to really recover, when the liquidation value almost zero, you will have to take haircut,” he noted. According to him, it also needs to be seen how much one gets in comparison to his claim and in comparison to the liquidation value. “Up to March data, creditors have got about 195 per cent of the liquidation value. That means companies have been rescued and thereafter creditors have got 195 per cent of the liquidation value. Anything above liquidation value is bonus and that has come because of the IBC,” he said. National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) President and Chief Justice (Rtd) M M Kumar said that 32 more members would be joining the tribunal, which would help in stabilising the system. At present, it has 25 members. Despite the adjudicating authority functioning with a very poor infrastructure, the average timeline for resolution of cases is around 300 days, Kumar said. Under the IBC, the timeline for resolution of a case is a maximum of 270 days. Kumar also said the institution of resolution professionals needs to be strengthened and such professionals must be more equipped and full of knowledge. They were speaking on the sidelines of a conference organised by industry body Assocham. The IBC provides for market-driven and time-bound resolution of stressed assets.last_img read more

UN FAO Morocco Threatened by Locusts

Rabat – Regions below the Atlas Mountains in Morocco could be at risk for new desert locust infestations from the “hundreds of small hopper bands” that have formed in the Western Sahara, in southern Morocco, according to a statement by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations released on Tuesday.The statement said groups of adult desert locust groups and a “few” small swarms could form and move to breeding areas south of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco and Algeria in April for the springtime. Two aircraft are currently on standby in the Western Sahara in case of further outbreaks.“Strict vigilance is required in all areas,” the statement read, specifically urging authorities to closely monitor developments in the Draa Valley, formed by a river that flows into Algeria. Earlier this year, “hopper groups” formed in the northern areas of Mauritania that border Morocco, an FAO statement said last week, adding that ground control operations are active in the two neighboring countries and 5,000 hectares of Moroccan land received corrective and preventative treatment in March.The FAO said “[small] hopper bands” and “swarms” of desert locusts recently formed in southern Yemen after the area received heavy rains last November from two back-to-back cyclones from the Arabian Sea. The U.N. Agency also said the civil unrest in the country is limiting the scope and effectiveness of the protocols in place to prevent and fight against locusts.The most detrimental effect of locusts on human society remains their ability to devour entire fields of crops within days, the organization said.“A very small swarm eats the same amount of food in one day as about 35,000 people and the devastating impact locusts can have on crops poses a major threat to food security, especially in already vulnerable areas,” the FAO said.The last major locust infestation in Morocco occurred in 2004 – a year during which the Western Sahara received 100 millimeters of rain when the region usually receives less than 1 mm. One swarm in between Tarfaya and Tan-Tan in Morocco held a total of 69 billion locusts and was 250 kilometers long. The FAO estimated that locusts ate approximately USD 2.5 billion worth of crops in Africa that year. read more

Canadians turn to comparison shopping as cost of food rises survey

TORONTO — A recent survey of Canadian adult consumers found that a large majority of them believe the price of foods they buy has gone up in the past year and more than half said they are doing more comparison shopping than before.The Ipsos Reid study done for RBC suggests the average monthly food bill for the 3,024 people it surveyed last month was $411.Ontario had the lowest provincial average at $379 per month and Quebec had the highest at $448 per month.The online survey also found about one-third of the respondents said food has a significant impact on their daily budget.About 15 % of the respondents said they were looking at other parts of their life, such as using their vehicles less, in order to deal with rising food prices.“In light of concerns over escalating food prices, more Canadians are looking for cost-saving strategies they can use on their next trip to the grocery store,” said Jason Round, head of the bank’s financial planning unit.According to the survey, 84% of respondents across the country said their food prices have increased over the past year.Ontario — where competition between grocery retailers has been intense for several years — was the only province below the national average, with 80% of respondents saying they felt food prices had gone up.The other regional averages were: British Columbia 86%; Alberta, 88%, Saskatchewan/Manitoba 89%, Quebec 86% and Atlantic Canada 88%.The average monthly food costs, apart from Ontario and Quebec, were: British Columbia, $415; Alberta, $440; Saskatchewan-Manitoba, $401 and Atlantic Canada, $420.The survey, conducted April 2 to 15, found 57% of respondents across the country said they comparison shop more than before and 41% said they were more budget conscious or less likely to make impulsive purchases.The national averages for an online survey of this size considered to be accurate within two percentage points.Canadian Press read more

Revised NSPS for greenhouse gas emissions from coal plants embrace todays technologies

first_imgThe Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) proposed revised New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for greenhouse gas emissions provide a path forward for commercially viable, advanced coal technology to reduce emissions and support a diverse, reliable and affordable electricity supply, the National Mining Association (NMA) has said.“The proposed standard for new coal plants represents smart energy policy by preserving the optionality, diversity and security in our nation’s power supply with the use of more efficient, demonstrated coal technologies,” said Hal Quinn, NMA President and CEO.“EPA’s proposed revision corrects a glaring example of counterproductive regulatory overreach from the last administration. The current standard accepts only carbon capture and sequestration – technology that is promising but not yet demonstrated and available on a broad, commercial scale. In doing so, it purposefully excluded the wide range of advanced coal technologies that are being deployed successfully elsewhere around the world to reduce emissions, but were effectively outlawed here in the US.”The 2015 NSPS aimed to make it all but impossible to build a new coal plant in the USA. The standard established partial carbon capture and storage (CCS) along with supercritical pulverized coal as the best system of emission reduction (BSER). At the time of the rule-making, no end-to-end CCS technologies had been demonstrated at scale for coal-fired baseload electricity generation. This technology was unviable and its cost exorbitant and unreasonable. CCS should have been disqualified as BSER for baseload power plants. Its inclusion for coal-based electricity generating units was arbitrary and unreasoned.At the time of the rulemaking, NMA argued that EPA should adopt a sound and balanced standard aligned with emission performance of new, highly efficient supercritical and integrated gasification combined cycle technologies. These technologies were proven, commercially offered and capable of achieving real and substantial emissions reductions 20% lower than the average emissions rates of subcritical plants that dominate the current coal fleet.last_img read more

Sumatra le bilan du séisme rehaussé à 10 morts

first_imgSumatra : le bilan du séisme rehaussé à 10 mortsAlors que le dernier bilan faisait état de cinq morts, les autorités ont annoncé que dix personnes étaient décédées suite au séisme survenu au large de Sumatra en Indonésie. Huit des décès sont dus à une crise cardiaque.Bien qu’aucun dégât majeur n’ait été rapporté, le bilan du séisme de magnitude 8,6 survenu le 11 avril dernier s’est alourdi ce week-end. Alors que les autorités faisaient état de cinq morts, ce sont désormais dix victimes qui sont à déplorer, dont huit seraient décédées des suites d’une crise cardiaque. Elles ont été recensées dans la province d’Aceh sur l’île indonésienne de Sumatra au large de laquelle s’est déclenchée la secousse. L’origine des deux autres morts restent cependant inconnues. Malgré la force du séisme, celui-ci s’est avéré beaucoup moins dévastateur que celui survenu en décembre 2004 dans la même région, notamment parce que son épicentre était bien plus éloigné. Néanmoins, les autorités ont déclaré que cette secousse avait permis de tester les procédures mises en place justement après cette catastrophe et d’identifier les points à améliorer. Contrairement à ce qui s’était passé il y a huit ans, les sirènes d’alarme ont retenti et les autorités ont procédé aux évacuations de millions de personnes vivant sur les rivages de l’océan Indien.En effet, en 2004, les communautés avaient été prises de court par l’arrivée d’une vague découlant du séisme. En Thaïlande, au plus fort de la saison touristique, le mur d’eau s’était abattu sur des stations balnéaires surpeuplées. Le tsunami avait ainsi fait 230.000 morts, dont 170.000 dans la seule région du nord de l’Indonésie. Si le système d’alerte s’est révélé plus au point cette fois-ci, les spécialistes estiment toutefois que les mesures sont loin d’être optimales : si une vague avait déferlé, la situation aurait pu de nouveau tourner au drame.Un système d’alerte à perfectionner Dans la province indonésienne d’Aceh, les routes ont rapidement été congestionnées, bloquant l’évacuation des populations, et des coupures du réseau d’alimentation électrique ont réduit au silence les sirènes d’alarme. En outre, il a fallu également une demi-heure entre le séisme et le déclenchement des alertes. “L’idéal, c’est d’alerter les populations d’un risque de tsunami dans un délai de cinq à dix minutes après un tremblement de terre. Mais le réseau électrique a été totalement coupé et les opérateurs ont eu peur de basculer sur le réseau de secours parce que nous avons vu des câbles qui se balançaient dangereusement dans les rues”, a expliqué Armia, un responsable de l’agence de gestion des crises.”Le message est simple : dans des circonstances aussi critiques que cela, il est impossible d’évacuer tout le monde à temps”, note Keith Loveard, analyste risque pour la société Concord Consulting basée à Djakarta. “Le système d’alerte au tsunami a fonctionné jusqu’à un certain point. Mais si la prise de conscience s’est améliorée, renforcée par le précédent de 2004, il y a encore des choses à améliorer par le biais de l’éducation de la population et de campagnes gouvernementales”, a t-il également estimé cité par l’AFP. Les spécialistes estiment notamment que les infrastructures routières sont inadaptées à une évacuation massive.Relayer l’alerte le plus vite possible À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Intervenu la semaine dernière, le Système d’alerte au tsunami de l’océan Indien, qui repose sur un réseau de stations sismographiques et de capteurs océaniques immergés, a été inauguré en juin 2006. Lorsqu’un tremblement de terre est enregistré, les données sont d’abord adressées au Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre de Hawaï et à l’Agence météorologique du Japon, qui se coordonnent avec les autres centres nationaux de la région. Un délai de quinze à vingt minutes peut être alors nécessaire pour analyser les données et lancer une alerte au tsunami. Une fois l’alerte émise, les autorités peuvent user de plusieurs moyens pour relayer l’information : radio, télévision, sms, sirènes, et même les haut-parleurs des mosquées. Certains pays ont en revanche leur propre système d’alerte. C’est le cas notamment du Sri Lanka dont le système est centralisé depuis Colombo, la capitale, où il suffit de presser un bouton pour que 75 tours de relais soient activées à travers le pays. Mercredi, trois millions de personnes ont ainsi été évacuées du littoral vers l’intérieur des terres en 20 minutes.La Thaïlande s’est dotée elle d’un Centre national d’alerte aux catastrophes installé à Bangkok. Ajouté à cela, des procédures d’évacuation, indiquant les routes à prendre et des points de rassemblement, ont été mises au point.Le 16 avril 2012 à 14:18 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

NASCAR star Dale Earnhardt Jr to retire at end of season

first_imgCHARLOTTE, N.C. — Dale Earnhardt Jr. abruptly announced his retirement at the end of the season Tuesday, a decision that will cost NASCAR its most popular driver as the series scrambles to rebuild its fan base.Colorful, candid and talented, Earnhardt has been plagued by concussions the last several years and he missed half of last season recovering from a head injury. He had delayed contract talks on an extension to drive the No. 88 Chevrolet, and the two-time Daytona 500 winner will call it quits when the season ends in November.Hendrick Motorsports said Earnhardt informed his team of his decision early Tuesday, though he first discussed retirement with his boss on March 29. Earnhardt and team owner Rick Hendrick scheduled an afternoon news conference to discuss his decision.“Dale Jr. has had a huge impact on our sport – and you can see that every week with his legion of fans and Junior Nation,” Jeff Gordon said in a statement released by Fox Sports, where he now works as an analyst after spending much of last season filling in for the injured Earnhardt. “He has a tremendous sense of the history of NASCAR and, while he shares his father’s name, Dale has made a name for himself with his accomplishments in racing. While we will miss Dale on the track next year, he loves this sport, those working in the industry and the fans too much to ever be too far away.”A third-generation racer, Earnhardt turns 43 in October, is newly married and has said he wants to start a family. He has become a vocal advocate for research into sports-related brain injuries, and the hit he took last June led to months of rehabilitation that gave him a new perspective on his life. The concussions left him with nausea, double vision, anxiety and other symptoms that he has discussed in great detail.last_img read more

Blazers rally to ruin Knicks home opener

first_imgNEXT GAMEBlazers at Bulls, 5 p.m. MondayTV: CSN, cable Channel 37. Radio: 95.5 FMOn the web: www.columbian.com/blazersNEW YORK — The elaborate pregame festivities were designed to emphasize that these are the “new” New York Knicks.Crunch time was the same ol’ story.The unbeaten Portland Trail Blazers spoiled the Knicks’ home opener, erasing a nine-point deficit in the final 5 1/2 minutes for a 100-95 victory Saturday night.“We felt the pressure was still on them, this is their home opener,” guard Brandon Roy said. “We just wanted to keep consistent with our pressure and with our effort, and down the stretch we felt we forced them into some tough shots and we were able to get a win.”Roy scored 29 points and LaMarcus Aldridge added 20 points and 10 rebounds. Andre Miller had 19 points and 10 assists as the Trail Blazers improved to 3-0.Aldridge hit the tiebreaking free throw with 25.5 seconds left, and both he and Miller made two apiece in the final half-minute as the Blazers weren’t fazed by a close game after two double-digit victories to open the season.“You don’t want to have to continue to do that, but these guys are not dropping their heads,” Portland coach Nate McMillan said. “They’re playing a 48-minute game.”Wilson Chandler finished with 22 points and 16 rebounds for the Knicks, who made only one field goal after taking a 92-83 lead with 5:31 remaining.

Windows Repair 40 released repair Windows software

first_imgWindows Repair 4.0 released: repair Windows software by Martin Brinkmann on July 27, 2017 in Software – 17 commentsWindows Repair 4.0 is the newest version of the popular repair software for Microsoft Windows that is available as a free and professional version.The program, which the developers recommend to run in safe mode with networking, is designed to fix numerous issues that Windows users may experience on their Windows machines.We reviewed one of the first versions of Windows Repair back in 2011. A lot has changed since then.Windows Repair fixes issues with Windows programs and settings, and advanced issues such as file permission problems.The application is offered as a portable version and a version that needs to be installed. A Pro version that adds additional features such as running custom scripts or improving performance is available as well.Tip: Check out Windows Repair Toolbox, a free repair programWindows Repair 4.0Windows Repair 4.0 groups the repair process to make things easier for users. The three main stages are pre-repair steps, backup tools and repairs – Main. Professional users gain access to advanced repairs and advanced tools on top of that.The first two steps, pre-repair and backup tools, are designed to eliminate issues that may prevent repairs from being applied successfully, and to create backups for restoration purposes should things turn out wrong.All of these are optional, but it is recommended to run some of them at the very least. You can check the drive for errors and run a file system integrity check under pre-repair steps for instance, and backup the Registry, and create a system restore point under backup tools.The repairs section of Windows Repair lists six options. All of these options will open the list of available repairs, and they differ only in what is preselected when you open the repairs.The five presets that you find listed on the page — all repairs, common repairs, malware cleanup repairs, permissions only and Windows updates — have certain repairs selected automatically when you make use of them.Note that you can select these on the page that lists all repairs as well.A total of 33 different repair options — some with sub-options — are listed on the page. This ranges from repairing Internet Explorer and Windows Firewall to fixing file associations and resetting all Windows Services to their default startup states.The repairs require elevated privileges, and you will notice that additional options are displayed on the screen. Free users may select to restart or shut down the machine after running the repairs.Pro users get additional options, for instance to run custom scripts as well.One issue that you may have on this page is that the program does not provide information on the repairs. While some are self-explanatory, repair print spooler for instance repairs printing on the device, others such as restore important Windows services may require further explanation as you don’t really know what they do. Windows Repair ships with a help file, but it does not reveal the information either.You may create your own presets using the program. This can be useful if you run into issues regularly that are fixed when you run some of the available repair routines that the application ships with.A log file is created automatically when you run repairs so that you know what is done to the system.The Pro part of the program comes with several interesting tools. Windows Firewall Cleanup for instance returns firewall rules that are invalid. This is the case for instance when programs are no longer available on the game but have firewall rules associated with them.VerdictWindows Repair 4.0 is a powerful repair tool for Microsoft Windows devices. The program comes with backup options, which is always a good thing, and a large number of fixes that you can run.The information it presents in the interface and help file are not covering all options and repairs however, and it is sometimes not clear what a particular fix will do because of that. All in all though this is an excellent tool to have.Now You: Do you use repair software for Windows? Summary12345 Author Rating2.5 based on 6 votes Software Name Windows RepairOperating System WindowsSoftware Category AdministrationLanding Page http://www.tweaking.com/ Advertisementlast_img read more
