Forty Hells Angels locations in Canada raided by police

Forty Hells Angels locations in Canada raided by police

Friday, April 6, 2007

On Wednesday, approximately forty Hells Angels locations were raided by police in Ontario, New Brunswick, and British Columbia. Police arrested more than thirty people in the three provinces.

The largest Hells Angels location in Canada, located in downtown Toronto on 498 Eastern Ave., was raided early Wednesday morning. Nearly sixteen members were arrested with two members still on the wanted list. Toronto Police removed the sign and are now investigating. They are currently planning a large crackdown on the Hells Angels in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).

“Hopefully by now biker gangs and their associates are getting the message: we’re here to shut you down. You can run but you can’t hide, and we will do all that we can to bring you to justice,” said Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner (OPP) Julian Fantino. “I believe that we have to continue the attack on organized crime however it’s manifested, and we owe the citizens of our community no less.” “It’s a good day for policing in Toronto, a good day for policing in Ontario.”

“Project Develop was an 18-month investigation that utilized a full-patch Hells Angels member as a police agent to infiltrate the Toronto downtown chapter of the Hells Angels,” OPP Inspector Dan Redmond said yesterday. “Hells Angels criminal activity has been exposed by one of their own.”

Nearly 170 charges were laid against thirty-one people, police said, though they provided no list of charges or names. Sixteen full-patch members are said to be in custody, with arrest warrants outstanding for another two. Police seized vehicles, drugs, weapons, property and real-estate, but were not specific about the amounts.

The Hells Angels is a large biker gang founded 1948 in Fontana, California and is estimated to have 1,800 members in 22 countries. Since they started many other biker gangs merged with them, due to the fact that the Hells Angels are larger. The Hells Angels have 500 members in Canada, thirty-four active chapters in Canada, sixteen in Ontario, seven in British Columbia, five in Quebec, three in Alberta, two in Saskatchewan, and one in Manitoba. A number of raids have been made since, with two in September and January 2006.

A location on Sherwood Ave. in Scarborough, Ontario, and a house on Berard Court in Barrie, Ontario are under a restraining order as they may have drug related crimes.

The Toronto chapter of Hells Angels, in the “Real Deal News” section of their website, alleged that the police were staging a show for the media and that the raids were overly dramatic to make Hells Angels look bad on television.

Cars big winner as 34th Annual Annie Awards handed out

Cars big winner as 34th Annual Annie Awards handed out

March 19, 2018 · Filed under Uncategorized

Monday, February 12, 2007

Cars drove home the big prize last night, from the 34th Annual Annie Awards. The animation industry’s highest honor, ASIFA-Hollywood’s Annies recognise contributions to animation, writing, directing, storyboarding, voice acting, composing, and much more.

As mentioned, Pixar took home the big prize last night, after facing stiff competition from four other Happy Feet, Monster House, Open Season, and Over the Hedge.

But the biggest winner of the night didn’t get a “Best Animated Feature” nod at all. Flushed Away won five feature animation categories including Animated Effects (Scott Cegielski), Character Animation (Gabe Hordos), Production Design (Pierre-Olivier Vincent), Voice Acting (Sir Ian McKellan as Toad), Writing (Dick Clement, Ian La Frenais, Chris Lloyd, Joe Keenan, and Will Davies).

Over The Hedge won awards for Directing (Tim Johnson and Karey Kirkpatrick), Storyboarding (Gary Graham), and Character Design (Nicolas Marlet).

Of little surprise, Randy Newman won an Annie for Cars in the “Music in an Animated Feature Production” category. Newman has won many Oscars for his movie music, and has a nomination this year for the song “Our Town“. Newman didn’t attend the Annies, instead picking up a Grammy for “Best Song Written For Motion Picture, Television Or Other Visual Media”.

DisneyToon Studios’ Bambi II won “Best Home Entertainment Production”, while “Best Animated Short Subject” went to Blue Sky Studios’ No Time For Nuts, which is based on Ice Age.

“Best Animated Video Game” went to Flushed Away The Game, while a United Airlines ad named “Dragon” won a “Best Animated Television Commercial” Annie for DUCK Studios.

byAlma Abell

No one really wants to think about the necessity of hospice care for a loved one. In most cases, the need for hospice care is suggested by medical personnel after no further treatment for the patient’s illness is recommended. The patient is often exhausted by long term medical care and being in the hospital and wants to be home once again.

This can be a difficult decision to make, since it recognizes that this is the final weeks or months of the loved one’s life. However, this is a kindness for both the patient and the family. Hospitals are sterile and cold; visiting hours are restricted. Being in familiar surroundings, in one’s own home, allows the end of one’s life to be lived with dignity and comfort.

Hospice fills in the gap by supplying necessary services to the patient that the family is unable to perform. The actual services that will be provided by Hospice Care At Home will be unique for each patient, but might include providing palliative medicine necessary for pain relief, changing dressings or providing other medical services that will improve the quality of life for the patient and family.

At the beginning of hospice care, the patient and family members will become part of a team that hours a day if needed, especially as the end of life draws near. A care plan will be put together as needs are identified. Each case will be unique. Every attempt is made to make this time easier for the family and the patient.

Hospice Care At Home is generally recommended for those whose life expectancy is six months or less. Medical care is provided for relief of pain and symptoms but not for curative purposes. The goal is to provide support necessary so that the person is able to live life to the fullest extent possible. Families also need support during this stressful time and receive this from the hospice staff.

Many families would not be able to provide home care for their loved one without hospice support and care. Counselling and spiritual support can be as important as caring for the physical body. Deciding upon hospice care can be a hard choice, but it is a sign of love to allow a loved one to spend their final days in the home that they cherish. Click Here for more details.

Russia asks Facebook to comply with personal data policy

Russia asks Facebook to comply with personal data policy

March 18, 2018 · Filed under Uncategorized

Friday, September 29, 2017

On Tuesday, Russian government internet watchdog Roskomnadzor “insisted” US-based social networking website Facebook comply with law #242 on personal data of users in order to continue operating in the country. Per law #242, user data of Russian citizens should be hosted on local servers — the rule which business-oriented networking site LinkedIn did not agree to, for which LinkedIn was eventually blocked in the country.

Roskomnadzor’s head, Aleksandr Zharov, said, “The law is mandatory for everyone. In any case, we will make sure the law is carried out, or else the company will stop working in Russia, as regretfully happened to Linkedin. There are no exceptions here”((ru))Russian language: ????? ?????????? ??? ????. ? ????? ?????? ?? ??? ???????? ????, ????? ????? ??? ????????, ??? ???????? ????????? ???????? ?? ?????????? ?????????? ?????????, ???, ? ?????????, ????????? ? LinkedIn. ??? ?????????? ???. Nikolay Nikiforov, the communication minister, in remarks to RIA Novosti said Facebook would be blocked by the authorities in the country if they did not comply with the rules. On Tuesday, Russian president Vladmir Putin’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said, “this is a business company that is making money and that must do this in accordance with the laws of the Russian Federation. There are laws that must be observed”.

However, the watchdog said Facebook would not be blocked until next year. Zharov said, “We don’t have Facebook in our 2017 inspections schedule in this direction. In 2018 we will think about it and maybe we will launch an inspection.”((ru))Russian language: ? ??? ? ????? ???????? ?? ????? ??????????? ?? ????? 2017 ???? Facebook’a ???, ? 2018 ???? ?? ????????, ????? ????, ????????

Law #242 came into effect on September 1, 2015. Russian websites like LiveJournal,,, Yandex, and Rambler had already fulfilled this requirement. In April, Twitter announced moving personal data to Russian servers by mid-2018.

Facebook estimated it had some six million daily users from Russia last year, and more than fourteen million monthly users. Considering these statistics, and other companies already complying with the law, Zharov said, “We are well aware that Facebook has a significant number of users in Russia; we also understand that this service is not one of a kind, and there are other social networks available”((ru))Russian language: ?? ????????? ????????, ??? Facebook ????? ???????????? ?????????? ????????????? ?? ?????????? ?????????? ?????????, ? ?????? ???????, ?? ????????, ??? ??? ?? ?????????? ??????, ???? ? ?????? ?????????? ????.

Within the preceding week, Facebook, Inc.’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, announced the company’s intention to reveal information about Russian companies who bought commercials on the platform, which are speculated to have interfered with and affected last year’s presidential election in the US.

GAO reveals $1.6 billion spent on public relations by the Bush administration in 2003-2005

GAO reveals $1.6 billion spent on public relations by the Bush administration in 2003-2005

March 18, 2018 · Filed under Uncategorized

Tuesday, February 14, 2006

A new 154-page Government Accountability Office (GAO) report says seven federal departments together spent US$1.6 billion on 343 contracts with public relations firms, advertising agencies, and media organizations, as well as individuals involved in such activities.

Congressional Democrats requested the report after several incidents surfaced in which journalists or commentators were paid to promote the Bush administrations programs, but did not disclose the financing, so called payola. In one case, Armstrong Williams was paid $186,000 for promotions of President Bush’s No Child Left Behind law. The administrations position was that an agencies’ mission includes spreading information about federal programs.

At that time, the GAO had independent objections to the ready-to-air news stories the administration’s provided to TV stations in order to promote it policies. The administration claimed the burden of disclosure falls to the TV stations.

Congress has now inserted a provision into an annual spending bill requiring federal agencies to include “a clear notification” within the text or audio of a prepackaged news story that it was prepared or paid for by the government.

Rep. Henry A. Waxman (D-Calif.) said “Careful oversight of this spending is essential given the track record of the Bush administration, which has used taxpayer dollars to fund covert propaganda within the United States.”

The seven agencies covered by the report are Commerce, Defense, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, Interior, Treasury, and Veterans Affairs.

TV debate between German chancellor Schröder and opposition leader Merkel held

March 18, 2018 · Filed under Uncategorized

Sunday, September 4, 2005

This article is part of the seriesGerman federal elections 2005
Complete Coverage
  • Schröder loses motion of confidence
  • German president dissolves parliament; elections in September
  • German Constitutional Court green-lights early elections call
  • TV debate between German chancellor Schröder and opposition leader Merkel held
  • Death of candidate will delay final results for German federal election by weeks
  • One week before German federal election, the race is wide-open again
Election Day
  • Results
  • German Christian Democrats win by-election in Dresden
  • Schröder gives up German chancellorship ambitions, makes way for Merkel
  • German Social and Christian Democrats agree on new government
  • Angela Merkel elected new German chancellor

German chancellor Gerhard Schröder (SPD) and the Chair of the Christian Democrats (CDU), Angela Merkel, faced each other on Sunday evening in the first and only debate between them in this election campaign.

The 90-minute long program, simulcasted on Germany’s four major TV stations, focused on employment, taxation and social reforms.

Merkel stated that she wants to reduce the taxation on gasoline to ease the high price Germans have to pay at the pump. Schröder responded that the VAT-increase that the CDU is planning would neutralize that effect and that his government hadn’t increased gasoline taxes since 2003.

The chancellor went on to blast Merkel’s designate Finance minister Paul Kirchhof, a proponent of a flat tax on income. He said that Kirchhof’s suggestions would turn Germans into “guinea pigs”. But Merkel called Kirchhof a “visionary” and said her party would make taxation “easier and more just”.

Speaking of employment, Schröder stated that his reforms are beginning to work and that he is on the right track. Merkel referred to five million unemployed Germans and said that seven years of Schröder government were “bad years for Germany”.

Polls conducted by the ARD after the debate show that 49% of Germans believe that Schröder was “more convincing” while 33% think that Merkel was. The ZDF said that 48% of the population think Schröder performed better, while 28% say the same about Merkel.

However, overall polls conducted by the ARD as well, say that Schröder’s SPD can expect 32% in the upcoming federal election, his current coalition partner, the Greens, 7%. Merkel’s CDU, along with its bavarian sister party CSU, on the other hand is projected to get 43%, which would enable them to form a coalition government with the FDP, which stands at 6%. Their majority however is slim, because the newly formed Party of the Left can expect 9%.

US stock markets reach 12-year lows

US stock markets reach 12-year lows

March 18, 2018 · Filed under Uncategorized

Thursday, March 5, 2009

US stock markets dropped to twelve-year lows on Thursday, amidst falling confidence in the financial sector and worries over whether the US automobile manufacturer General Motors will be able to keep operating.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped by 4.08%, or 280.52 points, at the closing bell, reaching a level of 6595.32, a new 12-year low. The Nasdaq Composite lost 54.15 points, or 4%, to 1299.59, while the Standard & Poor’s 500 plunged by 30.27 points, or 4.25%, closing at 682.60.

Every stock in the Dow Jones, other than Wal-Mart, either lost ground or remained even, and all stocks in the S&P 500 index lost ground.

General Motors’ shares lost 15.5% after the auto firm announced that its auditors had “substantial doubt” over whether it would be able to keep operating.

Shares of financial companies were lower by nine percent, with Bank of America losing 11.7% and Citigroup falling by 9.7%.

“What’s most worrisome is that we haven’t hit the crescendo yet,” said Bill Groeneveld, the head trader for vFinance Investments. “Asset-management divisions are getting calls to just liquidate everything, and we haven’t seen the big players come back in at all.”

“This is one of the worst bear markets in the last 100 years; it started out with the credit crisis and the subprime [loans], but it is like a forest fire that has raced across the clearing and ignited other parts: Autos, auto parts, the insurance companies have been hit very hard. The credit crisis is causing an unraveling of industry after industry because the banks don’t lend,” said David Dreman, the chief investment officer of Dreman Value Management.

European markets were also lower today, with the London’s FTSE index losing 3.2% and the DAX index of Germany falling by five percent.
