Walkerton – Joe Rys has been a sports fan all his life.
Locally, he initiated the longest golf day and was a success. In recent years, he has turned his attention to fundraising for hospice care, and even during COVID-19, he used the same technology to raise a lot of money.
In fact, he and his wife Diane (Diane) have participated in fundraising activities for many worthy causes in Walkerton and its area. Many of his efforts are related to sports.
He collected a lot of sports memorabilia, including baseball cards (thousands), photos of the Toronto Maple Leaf Stanley Cup champion team, the first edition of Sports Illustrated in 1954, photos of the Canadian team in 1996, and many more.
However, he is at a time in his life to narrow the scope of his collection and prepare to separate from the objects. Anyone interested in getting items from the collection can contact Rys via email email@example.com.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates-Saudi Arabia said on Saturday that it intercepted missile attacks against the capital of its southern provinces and drones carrying bombs, a series of air strikes that the country blamed on Yemeni rebel Houthis . During the years of war in Yemen, the military alliance led by Saudi Arabia announced that the Houthis, allied with Iran, had launched ballistic missiles to Riyadh and launched three decoy drones to Jizan Province. The fourth southwest city and other drones were monitored. Initially, there were no reports of casualties or damage. Houthis did not immediately comment. The attack took place at a time when tensions in the Middle East increased sharply. One day ago, a mysterious explosion hit an Israeli-owned ship in the Gulf of Oman. The sound of the explosion once again triggered people's concerns about the safety of ships in strategic waterways. In 2019, Iran had a series of suspected attacks on oil tankers. The state-owned Al-Ekhbariya television broadcast footage of what appeared to be an explosion over Riyadh. Social media users also posted videos, some of which showed residents screaming as they watched the blazing explosions pierce the night sky, which appeared to be Saudi Arabia’s Patriot missile batteries intercepting ballistic missiles. Colonel Telki Maliki, spokesperson for the Saudi-led coalition, said that the Houthis are "targeting civilians in a systematic and deliberate manner." The U.S. Embassy in Riyadh issued a warning to Americans, urging them to “be vigilant in case of further attacks in the future.” The flight tracking website showed that many flights scheduled to land at Riyadh International Airport were diverted or delayed within an hour of the attack. Up. According to a private Saudi news agency, civil defense spokesman Mohammed al-Hammadi (Mohammed al-Hammadi) subsequently stated that the scattered debris caused material damage to a house, although no one was injured. With the deepening of the Yemen war, Houthi missile and drone attacks against the country have become commonplace and rarely cause damage. Earlier this month, the Houthis used a bomb-laden drone to hit an airbus at Abha Airport in southwestern Saudi Arabia and caught fire. At the same time, the Saudi-led coalition was widely criticized by the international community for the Yemen air strikes, which killed hundreds of civilians and hit non-military targets including schools, hospitals and wedding parties. President Joe Biden announced this month that he will end US support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen, including the sale of "related" weapons. But he emphasized that the United States will continue to help Saudi Arabia resist outside attacks. In 2014, the Houthis occupied the capital of Yemen and most of the northern part of the country, forcing the government to go into exile. A few months later, this prompted Saudi Arabia and its allies to launch bombing operations. __Associated Press writer Samy Magdy contributed in Cairo. Isabel Debre, Associated Press
(Cecilia Fabiano/LaPresse/Associated Press-Image courtesy) Health Canada approved the Oxford-AstraZeneca and Serum Institute of India versions to prevent adult use of COVID-19. Previously, regulatory agencies in the United Kingdom, the European Union, and Mexico have adopted similar measures. Green light measures. And India. Clinical trials conducted in the United Kingdom and Brazil showed that a vaccine called ChAdOx1 from Oxford AstraZeneca was approved for use in Canada on Friday. The trial showed that the vaccine has an efficacy of 62.1% in reducing COVID-19 symptoms in patients. . Experts say that any vaccine that is more than 50% effective can help stop the outbreak. Dr. Supriya Sharma, Chief Medical Advisor of Health Canada, said that the key figures for all clinical trials of AstraZeneca products are zero-no deaths, no hospitalizations due to severe COVID-19, and no deaths due to AstraZeneca's adverse reactions. vaccine. Sharma said in the briefing: “I think Canada is eager for vaccines.” “We put more energy on the buffet table for use.” Specifically, compared with the vaccinated control group, there were 5,258 people in the vaccinated group. Sixty-four of them developed symptoms of COVID-19 (154 out of 154 out of 5,210 developed symptoms). Dr. Susy Hota, medical director of infection prevention and control at the University of Toronto Health Network, said that adding AstraZeneca’s vaccine to Canada’s selection is a positive move. Hota said: "Although the final efficacy of the AstraZeneca vaccine seems to be lower than our mRNA vaccine, it is still quite good." "What we need to focus on is trying to get as many people as possible to receive the vaccine so that we can Avoid the harm caused by this." Canada and AstraZeneca have reached an agreement to purchase 20 million doses of vaccine and 1.9 million to 3.2 million doses through a global vaccine sharing program called COVAX. Watch | Overview of AstraZeneca Vaccines: The government announced on Friday that Canada will also receive 2 million doses of AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine produced by the Serum Institute of India. Below are some common questions about vaccines, how they work, who and how they are promoted. What is the difference in this photo? Compared with mRNA vaccines from Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna, Oxford-AstraZeneca is cheap and easy to handle. The latter needs to be stored at ultra-cold temperatures to protect fragile genetic material. AstraZeneca stated that its vaccine can be stored under normal cold storage conditions (2 to 8 degrees Celsius), transported and processed for at least six months. (After thawing, Moderna's products can be stored at refrigerated temperatures for 30 days.) Easy handling simplifies the administration of AstraZeneca vaccines in rural and remote areas in Canada and around the world. Hota said: "Having a variety of vaccine candidates to attract as many Canadians as possible definitely has some advantages." Sharma said that although product monographs point to limited evidence for people over 65 years old, it comes from the fact that AstraZeneca is already using AstraZeneca. Real data from countries where the vaccine is used shows that this vaccine is safe and effective in the elderly. Sharma said: "We have real evidence from Scotland and the United Kingdom that the doses of these people have exceeded 80 and the hospitalization rate has dropped significantly," Sharma said. Compared with the real-world environment that reflects people of different ages, medical conditions, and other factors, data from clinical trials is more limited. How does it work? Vaccines work by training our immune system to recognize invaders. The first two vaccines that have been approved for use in Canada to prevent COVID-19 can provide RNA encoding the surface spike protein of the pandemic coronavirus. On February 12, health care workers Diego Feitosa Ferreira and Clemilton Lopes de Oliveira took a boat in the Amazonas in Brazil The state travels by boat to vaccinate residents with the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine. The product can be stored at refrigerated temperature, which is conducive to use in remote areas. In contrast, the AstraZeneca vaccine packs the genetic information of the spike protein in the outer shell of the virus, which causes the common cold in chimpanzees. Vaccine manufacturers changed the adenovirus so that it cannot grow in humans. Viral vector vaccines can mimic viral infections better than other vaccines. One disadvantage of viral vectors is that if a person is immune to a particular vector, the vaccine will not work either. But people are unlikely to be exposed to the adenovirus of chimpanzees. AstraZeneca is working hard to reformulate its vaccine to address the more spreading coronavirus mutations. How and where to use it? Eric Arts, a virologist at the University of Western London in Ontario, said the vaccine from Oxford-AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson (also under review by Health Canada) and the Russian Sputnik-V vaccine There are some similarities. "I really like the fact that AstraZeneca decided to continue the experiment and develop the Sputnik-V vaccine together with the Russians," said Arts, who is the chair of the Canadian HIV Pathogenesis and Virus Control Research. At St. Mary’s Hospital in Dublin, Ireland, a box containing the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine was posted. Health Canada stated that the vaccine was given by two injections of 0.5 ml of vaccine into the arm muscles. "The reason I am encouraged by this is that I think there may be more opportunities to manage these vaccines in low- and middle-income countries. We need this. I think our high-income countries ignore this to some extent. The situation. It is of global significance.” Researchers reported in The Lancet on February 2 that in a phase 3 clinical trial involving approximately 20,000 people in Russia, two doses of the Sputnik-V vaccine were effective. At 91%, it seems to prevent the vaccinated people from getting severe COVID-19. Watch | To date, the performance of AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine: 16 COVID-19 cases (0.1% or 16 / 14,964) in the vaccine group and 62 cases in the control group (1.3% or [62 / 4,902]). There are no serious adverse reactions related to vaccination. Most adverse events are mild, such as flu-like symptoms, pain and weakness at the injection site or low energy. The art world and other scientists acknowledge the speed and lack of transparency of the Russian vaccination program. But British scientists Ian Jones and Polly Roy wrote in the accompanying comments that the results were clear and added another vaccine option to reduce the incidence of COVID-19 .
Toronto-In the Lotto 649 draw on Saturday night, there was no winning ticket for the $12 million jackpot. However, the guaranteed $1 million prize was won by lottery players in Ontario. On March 3, the next Lotto 649 draw will have a jackpot of approximately $15 million. Canadian Press

Note that some provinces report once a week, while others report figures for the current day or the previous day. The vaccine dose is not equal to the number of people vaccinated, because the approved vaccine requires two doses per person. Currently, children under the age of 18 and children with certain health conditions are not vaccinated. In some cases, because some provinces have already drawn additional doses in each vial, the number of doses administered seems to exceed the dose allotted.

In order to encourage Canadians to keep in touch during the pandemic, Canada Post sent a postcard to each family for free to their relatives. Starting Monday, 13.5 million postage paid postcards will begin to arrive at every residence across the country. Sylvie Lapointe, spokesperson for Canada Post in Ottawa, said: "I think everyone missed weddings, funerals and birthday celebrations. We all missed people and loved ones across the country." She said, Postcards are a way to tell others that they are in your heart. Canada Post’s “Write Here, Write Now” campaign aims to help Canadians establish contact by writing letters. Each family will receive one of six designs, including messages such as "Wish I be there/fill my gifts" and "Send a smile/Jet'embrasse". There is a series of messages on the front of the blank postcard, which can be mailed free of charge anywhere in Canada. People can put postcards in any community mailbox or post office and send them to any place in Canada. Doug Ettinger, President and CEO of Canada Post, said in a press release: "A meaningful connection is essential to our emotional health, community awareness and overall well-being." "Canada Post hopes Everyone stays safe, but also keep in touch with people who are important to them." More and more people are participating in this sport at a time when traditional letters have dropped sharply. In its 2019 report, Crown stated that since 2006, the number of letters and banknotes sent to people’s homes has fallen by 55%. However, spokesperson Lapointe believes that the epidemic may cause this decline, especially during the holiday season. Two of the six postcard designs have been sent to Canadians. Doug Ettinger, President and CEO of Canada Post, said that meaningful connections are essential to our emotional health. She said: "Over the past year, the number of people we need to help each other has increased." "During Christmas, we saw a large number of red and green envelopes circulating." The global epidemic posed a major challenge to Canada Post, but due to The restrictions on face-to-face shopping have led consumers to shop online, and package mail has increased as a result. However, Canada Post stated that the explosive growth of household packages was not enough to offset the loss of revenue due to fewer letters and additional operational security costs. If the price of a single stamp is US$1.07 (or US$0.92 if purchased as a brochure), Canada Post’s free postcard service may also carry a high price tag. La Pointe said that she does not know the total cost of postcard activities, but there is already the infrastructure to provide these postcards.
Hesitancy about vaccines, misinformation and mistrust caused by "medical racism" are problems facing scientists, doctors, and community groups who try to provide assurance when implementing immunization programs across Canada. Dina Guarin, 56, has not yet decided whether to vaccinate, but she said her sister (a nurse in Seattle) has been vaccinated. "Will it be safe? Will it really prevent us from getting COVID?" Guarin said from Vancouver. She said she knows that there are people who are worried about the possible long-term consequences of infertility, and that her 81-year-old mother and others in the Filipino community want to provide information in Tagalog. Tara Moriarty, an infectious disease researcher at the University of Toronto School of Dentistry, launched a project in January that will be held 7 nights a week with residents, long-term care and nursing home staff, and family members. Of the weekly zoom meeting. Members to provide reliable information about vaccines. Moriarty said: "I don't know when we started to have much demand." Her past experience as a private support staff in Montreal made her worry about the slow deployment of vaccines and the possibility of widespread death, especially among the elderly. The program was initiated by CORI-19 Resources Canada. The organization was co-founded by Moriarty in March last year and has been expanded, so anyone who is hesitant to vaccinate can participate. A rotating group of about 30 volunteers will answer them. The problem. They include virologists, pharmacists, family doctors, and scientists who provide unspecified terminology explanations. Moriarty said that some of the main questions asked include how to develop a vaccine in less than a year, and whether it can be used for people taking certain drugs, pregnant women or people with chronic diseases. When talking about the dialogue methods of the experts, Moriarty said: "There is no discussion about the person in charge." They also solved the problems of online promotion of fake treatments and the latest clinical trial findings. The project was so successful that she also held daytime zoom meetings for unions representing healthcare workers.

"As scientists, we are completely dismissive of what people hear on the ground and the misinformation that causes them to become a little hesitant. Therefore, we can actually really try and talk about the truth and everything behind the science.

British Columbia and Ontario have given priority to immunization of Aboriginal people. Federal Minister of Aboriginal Services Marc Miller stated that the government is working with other provinces and territorial health authorities to provide immunization for Aboriginals, Metis and The Inuit community prepares a mass vaccination plan. For example, in northern Ontario, residents of 31 remote communities are currently being vaccinated, most of which are of the Nishnawbe Aski ethnic group, because teams of health care workers are deployed there for a week. Dr. Lisa Richardson, an internal medicine expert at the University of Toronto School of Medicine and head of indigenous health strategy, said that she will be part of the northbound team this week. Richardson said the plan, led by Ornge, the provincial air ambulance service, requires health care providers to receive nine hours of training in indigenous cultural safety in order to work with vulnerable communities that have historical reasons for vaccine hesitation. "When I talk about vaccine indecision, I actually reverse it and say,'The health care system problem that causes vaccine indecision.' So when you start to explain this historical context, people can Blame the reason for mistrust on this situation." Richardson said: "As an indigenous practitioner, I hear stories about abuse in the health care system and even locally. Therefore, this is a continuing existence. Question.” Take Joyce Echaquan, a Quebec resident, who posted a video of her verbal abuse when she died in the hospital in October last year. Richardson said that people who have enough information about the COVID-19 vaccine will feel able to make their own choices, and that the vast majority of people in indigenous communities are receiving immunizations. "You will consider carefully and make your own decision. This is really critical, so it will not be enforced because there are too many mandatory activities in the health care field that you can do without consent."

The head of Renfrew County and the district health department said he may impose stricter pandemic restrictions on parts of the area following the surge in cases in communities outside Ottawa. According to Dr. Rob Cushman, Acting Medical Officer of the Department of Health, the Department of Health has confirmed 15 positive cases of COVID-19 in the past week, most of which are in the town of Arnprior in Ontario and the nearby town of McNab/Braeside in Ontario. that area. Cushman said that people attended the same social gatherings and then spread the virus by visiting several different homes and businesses. Cushman said on Saturday: “It looks like it’s just some parties. Let’s have fun together.” “I’ve heard of ice fishing and indoor parties. I’ve heard of many celebrations.” According to the health department, those The infected people subsequently worked or visited seven local businesses under contagious conditions. Cushman said that the health department closed one company, while several other companies chose to temporarily close themselves. The health department said the cases involved about five families. Cushman said: "I think what you see here is just a kind of wanton disrespect and neglect." The mayor is "a bit angry" Renfrew County currently uses the color-coded COVID-19 risk assessment framework in the province. The bottom is green, and the frame comes with the strictest restrictions on the pandemic. McNab/Braeside Mayor Tom Peckett reiterated that just because the area is green does not mean people can ignore the rules. He said: “Even if our area is in a green zone, the rules of separating and not holding large gatherings are still valid.” Paget said he was disappointed because most people follow the rules, and the behavior of a few people may be affected. Affect everyone else in the community. He said: "This makes me a little angry because they are not thinking about anyone other than themselves." "COVID fatigue" The Ontario Ministry of Health said in a statement that it has been in close contact with health officials across the province. Quickly respond to changes in the flu pandemic. Although the province has decided to relocate the area to a more restrictive yellow zone (this decision is not only based on a sudden increase in cases), health officials have the power to impose Article 22 orders to target specific transmission areas, the Ministry of Health pointed out. This is a step that Cushman did not rule out. He said: "We may be urged to take more restrictive measures in a given town, rather than apply it across Renfrew County." The outbreak occurred a week after Cushman issued a video message warning. , Warned that the number of infections per capita among residents of the county is increasing. He said he is speaking out sternly now because he does not want the increase in the number of cases to become a trend. He said: “People are suffering from COVID fatigue. One thing that makes them worse with COVID fatigue is to further shut down the economy.” “So we don’t want to do this.

I like to play on the ice. I hear the small ripples on the ice, the sound of the skates when I stop, and even the wind spreads in my hair." Dahlgren called on Saskatchewan. The SaskTel Centre met with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), which is the 13,000-seat hockey arena at the northern end of the city. After the interview, he tied up the CCM and poured a bag of hockey pucks on the smooth ice It quickly became obvious that talking about skating with Dahlgren was not the same as standing on the ice in the center, while Dahlgren stood out from behind the speed of the internet. It was like being passed by a sports car- A sports car with a big laugh on its grille.

Opposition parties say that the Ontario government’s new "Anti-Human Trafficking Act" is a welcome start to address this wide-ranging problem, but there may be a big gap to be resolved. Ontario’s Attorney General Sylvia Jones introduced Bill 251 in the provincial legislature on February 22 (National Human Trafficking Awareness Day). Jones said: "We are boldly moving forward to raise public awareness, protect victims, support survivors, and hold perpetrators accountable." She said Ontario has reported more human trafficking to the police than any other part of the country. It's all too much. One of the cornerstones of the act to save victims is the recognition of the fact that they are often taken to hotels and motels for sexual exploitation. The first part of the proposed legislation requires hotels to register every guest who checks in, including their name and address. If "there are reasonable grounds to believe that the information recorded in the register will help find or identify the current victim or person who is being victimized by human trafficking, it can also enable police and Aboriginal police officers to access the hotel’s registration form faster . The danger of being trafficked.” NDP opposition MPP Chris Glover (Chris Glover) said, but the bill does not specify whether people who operate other types of accommodation, including short-term rentals such as Airbnb, will be subject to the same requirements. Glover said: "It is indeed necessary to pursue more than just hotels...As far as you know, to regulate and require them to participate." "It is also necessary to involve Airbnb and other short-term rental companies in order to curb the population of their sites. Trafficking.” The bill says that, in addition to hotels, “there is also a requirement for businesses of the specified level to keep these registers.” CBC News asked the Ontario government to clarify whether Airbnb was included, but failed to respond before the deadline. The bill also includes a provision requiring the attorney general or other government ministers to enact other regulations after the act becomes law, including identifying other enterprises. But Glover and other advocates say that it is important to realize that, by stating it in the legislation itself, human trafficking occurs in many different types of short-term residences. Legal counsel Christa Big Canoe said: "If you are not clear on the surface when you read the bill, then who is the'prescribed class' or what accommodation service is applicable, then it must be right in the legislation so that everyone knows that it applies. For whom." Director of Publicity of the Aboriginal Legal Services Department. In Canada, Aboriginal women and girls are particularly vulnerable to human trafficking. "In [the national survey on missing and murdered indigenous women and girls, one thing we hear over and over again is the role of hotels or this type of temporary residence or living conditions that these indigenous women are forced to carry out Sexual exploitation and trafficking. The rate is very high," she said. Christa Big Canoe, director of legal advocacy at the Indigenous Legal Services Department, said that human trafficking and sexual exploitation occur in various forms of accommodation, from five-star hotels to motels to short-term rentals including Airbnb. Big Kayak says that most people are unaware of the frequency of human trafficking, which is usually "in sight." She said people often think of roadside motels when they think of human trafficking. It did happen here, but the traffickers also used the victims' various accommodations, from large five-star hotels to Airbnb rentals. The big canoe said: "It's more insidious than most people realize. It's almost like society has a deliberate blindness." "It's like we see it and then look away, otherwise we might be suspicious. It, but we don’t take action.” She said that in addition to registering guests, hotel staff should be trained to look for signs of trafficking. For example, if a group of people check in and only one of them is a girl or woman, it may be a potential signal. Richard Dunwoody, executive of the non-profit organization Project Recover, said that traffickers often take victims' credit cards (or steal their names to apply for new credit cards) and use them to book rooms. Their financial foundation. Dunwoody said that the organization helped more than 120 survivors last year, and credit card receipts showed that their traffickers used hotels and services such as Airbnb on average. Both Glover and Big Kayak stated that they hope that the bill can be amended through the second and third readings before it is approved by the royal family and becomes law.

(Danny Globerman/CBC-Image source) The Ottawa-Carleton District School District Board (OCDSB) has provided parents with a two-week deadline to decide whether their children will go to school this fall or in person. The board said that parents will receive a form on Monday and ask them to return the form before March 14 and decide what they plan to do in September (more than five months ago). According to OCDSB, if parents do not return the form, they will assume that the student will participate in person. "This is an important decision, and we encourage you to discuss this with your children," wrote a letter to parents on Saturday morning. "Remember, this decision will apply to the entire school year. Unless the situation is critical, it will be difficult to transition students later." "Appropriate mechanism" to consider changes At the board meeting held last week, Brett Reynolds, Deputy Director of Education ( Brett Reynolds) stated that they expect most parents to choose face-to-face learning. He said that a decision now needs to be made so that staffing and scheduling decisions can be made in accordance with the collective agreement. Reynolds said that although the deadline is tight, if the situation changes and the parents need to change the stream, they will have a choice. He said: “For those who make a decision and then really, really, really find themselves in a situation where they need to return to the scene to support, we always have an appropriate mechanism to consider these (requests),” he said. Malaka Hendela, the co-chair of the Ottawa Carlton School Council, saw it here last summer and said that a decision made within two weeks would have a "significant impact" on the lives of parents. The union says that lead time is important. Ottawa-Carleton Parliamentary School Council Co-Chair Malaka Hendela said that parents are only given two weeks to make a decision, and it will not have a “significant impact until autumn.” ". Hendra said: "The reality is that none of us knows what September will be like." Hendra also has a child attending a school on the board of directors. "So it may be in vain. It may be a lot of [planning], and then at the last minute-like what happened last September-we were delayed, we had to make adjustments, we had to change everything again." But, Ottawa -David Wildman, president of the Carleton Elementary School Interim Teachers Association, said that tight deadlines are very important for the purpose of the program. Wildman told the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation: “For teachers, whether they are temporary teachers or ordinary teachers, it is very, very important, because the staffing process is very complicated and there is enough time to do it.” “So if they want to They have enough time to prepare if they change tasks.” OCDSB has established safety regulations in its letter, saying that as long as appropriate regulations are established, the school can be safely operated, and they are willing to gradually resume normal operations in the next school year. The board of directors said that the pupils who return to school in September will be grouped by class, and the staff will rotate between classrooms. The OCDSB stated that programs like Google Classroom will remain in place in case they need to switch to distance learning, or if a person must be isolated from the outside world. For middle school students who attend classes in person, the school year will be divided into four semesters, but schools for the International Baccalaureate program adopt an eight-person system.
(Keith Whelan / CBC-image credit) The slogan of the skin care business Deciem, Abnormal Beauty Company emphasized its niche position in the cosmetics field. After closing the deal for $2.2 billion this week, some people doubt whether the startup will maintain its unique reputation. Deciem Beauty Group Inc. was founded in Toronto in 2013. Although its popular skin care brand is called The Ordinary, it claims to be atypical. Unlike most major skin care brands, the company sells formulas containing only a few ingredients at very low prices. It has a large following, including celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, and net sales for the 12 months ended January 31 were approximately $460 million. However, after learning that the cosmetics giant Estée Lauder (Estée Lauder Cos. Inc.) acquired Deciem, some supporters were worried about it. Can Estee Lauder's so-called "industrial disruptors" lower prices and keep in touch with consumers after being absorbed by American conglomerates? The New York-based multinational manufacturer of skin care, makeup, perfume and hair care products will increase its stake in Deciem from 29% to 76%, and then purchase the remaining shares in three years. As a replacement for the big beauties, Deciem has won followers. Its products are packaged in pure white, with scientific naming and price tags, which are only a small part of some competitors. For example, Estee Lauder's Resilience Multi-effect moisturizer is priced at 124 Canadian dollars per 50 ml; ordinary moisturizer only costs $ 7.70 per 100 ml. Watches | Estée Lauder (Estée Lauder) takes over fans of the Canadian beauty brand: After the sale attracted the attention of consumers, some people expressed concern about social media and worried that the new owner might tamper with the brand. Some people talk about hoarding products before formula or price changes. Beauty writer Nneka Elliott, who sometimes contributes to CBC Life, said Deciem offers "unheard of" prices for certain products. She believes that Estee Lauder is looking for a foothold in the millennial and Gen Z markets. "For me, it must be a bit of a headache... These two brands are so at both ends of the scale, so I want to know what kind of impact they will have when they are fully launched." She pointed out a popular one. , An independent brand, similar to Deciem’s "Paula's Choice," she said, after it was sold to a private equity firm, it changed radically. "We saw prices skyrocketing. Then, we saw a lot of new products, a wide variety of products. When this happens, it gets a little messy. So people keep saying:'Oh, I hope this is not Paula's choice.'" Deciem's products have a reputation for being affordable. Nicola Kilner, co-founder and CEO of Deciem, said that fans and employees have no worries. Accessible pricing is important for new owners who intend to keep their headquarters, laboratories, and jobs in Canada. She said that Estée Lauder can learn from Deciem's transparent method of communicating with customers, and Deciem can take advantage of Estée Lauder's distribution advantages. Through this partnership, the growth trajectory means that Deciem, which is mainly located in the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada, will seek "mass expansion" of personnel in emerging markets such as India, the United Arab Emirates and Malaysia. Kilner said she thinks Estee Lauder appreciates Deciem's creativity and vision. "Therefore, they really want to maintain independence. I think this is the music in our ears." Experts say that large companies only buy small companies to control. Experts say that Mark Satov, a business strategist at Satov Consultants in Toronto, will not buy it. "All these are talking about:'No, we are sold out, but it will (remain) independent, and they will not control us, and the big corporate giants will not tell us what to do'-it's all very cute, But this is not the case." He said that big companies buy smaller companies just to control them, but that doesn't necessarily mean there will be changes. If Estee Lauder has "a series of brands, they want one such brand, one such brand..., then they can cater to a wide range of consumers according to their needs. And... I think there is no reason to increase prices, especially It's if they don't have other brands at this price level." Estee Lauder products are on display in a department store in South Portland, Maine. An expert said that the company may want to keep its Deciem products at a low price. He compared the cosmetics industry with the beer industry: the content of the bottle does not matter what the buyer said. With this in mind, now may be a good time for Deciem to sell its shares. "The cosmetics industry is not based on quality differences, but on brand prestige. Therefore, to some extent, brands cannot be new, avant-garde and interesting in 20 years. Therefore, you launch new brands and they mature , And then you invest in them and must sell them. "Selling a house to a bigger brand is actually a good thing, because you won’t be cold and sharp for 20 years. "He said that people may worry that small Canadian companies will be swallowed by large American companies, but they are powerless. "What the government needs to do is to fund innovations in this country so that we can develop sufficiently successful and excellent products and ensure that There is a community in this country, an investment community. Countries that want to buy and keep it. ...If we do not allow the sale of Canadian companies to American companies, it will happen that [Canadian companies] cannot obtain capital during the venture capital stage. "

(John Woods, Maine/Canadian News Agency)-Maine legislators are discussing how the state can plug into the proposed Canadian power grid to make renewable energy more accessible and affordable in the Atlantic Province and Quebec. Christopher Kessler, a Democrat in the Maine House of Representatives, introduced a bill last month that would require the state government to establish a clean interconnection called the "Atlantic Ring Road" on seats at the negotiating table. Energy grid. The Atlantic Clean Energy Program Committee, composed of federal and provincial government officials and major power companies, has been talking about the Atlantic Ring Road since 2019 and released a rough map of the power grid in a report last summer. In "The Throne Speech" last fall, the Trudeau Liberal Party gave the Ring of the Atlantic a nod of support. The loop may rely on some upgrades to existing energy pipelines and some new buildings, but detailed plans have not yet been announced. In August 2020, the Atlantic Clean Power Program Committee included a possible route map for the Atlantic Ring Road in an interim report. The committee is expected to release its final report in March. Kessler of Maine, which is seeking to export renewable energy, said he wants his state to be part of the circular economy because Maine and Atlantic Canada have similar goals to remove carbon from their power grids, and the interconnection may be mutually beneficial. Mutually beneficial. He said this will also help Maine achieve its goal of eventually selling renewable energy to other jurisdictions. Kessler said in an interview: "Not only is Maine interested in obtaining renewable energy to help stabilize our grid and make it more reliable, but Maine also has the goal of becoming an exporter of renewable energy." He pointed out that Maine already has the infrastructure to link it to New Brunswick and Quebec, but whether these links will connect to the rest of the Atlantic Atoll is unclear. "As for the appearance of [Atlantic Loop], this is all up in the air. This is the exact point where the dialogue started, so we can discuss and analyze to see if Maine has something and the Atlantic provinces can work together to We achieve the goal of decarbonization." If Kessler's bill is passed, it will require the governor to directly express interest in the Atlantic Ring Road to the prime ministers and prime ministers of all relevant provinces, and to maintain an "equal position" in all negotiations. The governor’s office advises against negotiations. The bill went to a public hearing on a committee of the state legislature earlier this month. Next, the committee members will further debate, and the committee members will decide whether to advance it to the entire House of Representatives. If passed in the House, it will enter the State Senate for a final vote. In 2015, workers were shown on the construction site of a hydroelectric power facility in Muskrat Falls, Newfoundland and Labrador. The Ring of the Atlantic will be partly powered by hydroelectric projects such as Muskrat Falls. One of the testimonies submitted to the public hearing was from the Governor's Office of Energy. Office director Dan Burgess wrote that instead of getting a place at the negotiating table, it might be more effective for Maine to continue to monitor ongoing planning plans and any progress in the "Atlantic Ring Road" concept. . Kessler disagreed. He said: "I think active participation is the only option... If we don't ask for it, we will miss any potential opportunities. Of course we need to be active participants, not bystanders." Kessler said, since being public Since the hearing, he has been cooperating with the governor's office to propose some solutions to Burgess' points. More popular stories
The Crown Company, which is in charge of the project, stated that the latest phase of the project will further develop the Fairview Bay Container Terminal in the Bedford Basin of Halifax and will not have a significant impact on the environment. The Halifax Port Authority plans to build an 11-bay, 2,700-square-meter building that will be used by the Canadian Border Services Agency to inspect containers at the terminal. A truck gate will also be built, and electronic scanners will help you track containers and their cargo; there will also be a large asphalt mix and new roads, including a road connecting the project to African highways. The new infrastructure will be built on the land created by filling the Bedford Basin in the past few years. In total, nearly four hectares of infill land will be filled to accommodate the project. As part of the Canadian Impact Assessment Agency’s approval process, port authorities are required to assess the potential impact of container inspection facilities and truck entrances and exits. Port authority spokesperson Lane Farguson said an environmental consultant hired by the port authority concluded that it would not have a significant adverse effect on the environment. The port authorities will not elaborate on how the conclusions were reached, only that the determination was made through an impact assessment process. In order to reduce potential adverse environmental impacts, mud fences will be installed around the perimeter to prevent sand-filled water and debris from entering the pool, vehicles will be equipped with silencers to reduce noise, and lighting will be designed to reduce light pollution. The port authorities said the project will reduce truck traffic. Now, when the CBSA selects the containers to be inspected, they will be trucked to the Burnside Business Park, then transported back to the terminal, and then transported to the destination. Farguson said that having container inspection facilities in the terminal will reduce truck traffic in the MacKay Bridge and Burnside areas. He said: "This will reduce the associated mileage and greenhouse gas emissions." "This is a small step towards slightly reducing the carbon footprint." The project involves the construction of a container inspection facility in 11 bays, as shown in the photo above. In the center is a brown building. The public was invited to comment on the potential environmental impact of the project in November and December, but Farguson said it received no comment. Farguson said the construction of the container inspection building, truck gates and roads may take place later this year. The filling project approved in 2012, called Fairview Cove Isolation Facility, has been approved by the federal government and started in 2012. As of November 2020, a total of about 6.3 hectares of land has been filled, or about one hectare of land. -One third of Castle Hill. The material used to fill the water is mainly pyrite slate, which has been removed from the peninsula’s construction site. "You can't just leave it on the surface, because when it interacts with fresh water and oxygen, in other words, if rain falls on these things, you will produce acidic runoff, and acidic runoff will affect the flow of freshwater." , Farguson said. Refueling operations have been carried out since 2012. In July 2018, a man died when a dump truck in operation slipped into the water at the scene. The construction company he worked for was fined $60,000 for failing to provide proper guidance and equipment. The pyrite slabs were buried in the sea water near the Fairview Cove pier and then covered with clean filler. Farguson said: "This way, you can take oxygen out of the mixture instead of an aerobic environment. For us, it is an excellent building material for such things." In the next few years, Fairview Bay More changes are expected in the container terminal. In 2019, the federal government announced funding to connect the North End Terminal with the container terminal in Point Pleasant Park at the southern end of Halifax as part of the Windsor Street Exchange Redevelopment Project.
