(Photo by AFF-USA/Shutterstock (9998736af)Steven Lee OlsenPandora Presents: Backroads with Jason Aldean, Nashville, USA – 27 Nov 2018 Advertisement Between the breadth of data tools available for musicians and the amount of support that digital distributors are able to offer to creators these days, there’s never been a better time to be an indie artist. On Wednesday, Pandora announced a revamp of its Artist Marketing Platform (AMP) to fold indie artists more cleanly into the mix.Pandora’s AMP — a suite of analytic features that allow musicians to see granular information such as their song-by-song spins, market reach, and demographics, comparable to the popular analytics dashboards offered by Spotify and Apple Music — will now include an independent artist submission tool. Through this, self-releasing artists can get their music across the desks of Pandora’s data scientists, have it analyzed by the company’s signature Music Genome Project, and see it put into regular rotation in users’ Pandora radio stations alongside mega-hits from big stars. The indie submission tool has existed in the past, but lived in a standalone platform.

RCMP government skip community meeting on police oversight in Iqaluit

October 14, 2019

Tagged: , , , , , ,


first_imgKent DriscollAPTN National NewsDespite months of notice, members of the RCMP and the territorial government skipped a community meeting in Iqaluit to discuss police oversight in Nunavut.About 40 members of the community gathered in Iqaluit’s soup kitchen for a meeting organized by local journalist Thomas Rohner, and featured Senator Kim Pate, a long time prisoners advocate, and Tamara Fairchild from the Legal Services Board of Nunavut.The role of Nunavut’s RCMP has been under fire in recent months, as the number of police shootings has increased.Members of Nunavut’s RCMP have shot and killed three people in the last six months.The latest shooting occurred May when police shot and killed Jeremy Nivviaq in Hall Beach, NU.Ottawa Police have been called in the investigate the shooting.The results of the investigation will not be released to the public.To date, no Mountie has been charged or disciplined for any of the shootings.The other men shot and killed in Nunavut in recent months are Charles Qirngnirq, 21 who was killed in Gjoa Haven Dec. 19, 2016. And a 20-year-old man in Pond Inlet who died in March, 2017. Police are not releasing the man’s name or whether officers shot him or he killed himself.In February, an Iqaluit drunk driver received a lesser sentence because he was assaulted by RCMP.Two recent cases of men being beaten by RCMP in their cells on video were dismissed by the Ottawa Police Service, the outside police brought in when Nunavut RCMP need to be investigated.Former Premier Paul Okalik has called for a different agency to investigate RCMP, and the Justice Department is currently studying their options, with no clear goal or timeline established. Nunavut’s Justice Department is the contractor for Nunavut’s RCMP, and the outside force chosen is their decision.Nunavut’s RCMP cited a scheduling conflict as the reason they were not in attendance – and the Government of Nunavut Justice Department responded in writing.“We will not be attending this meeting given the need to first complete the work the Department of Justice is currently undertaking on this issue… we are intending to commence community engagement and public discussion of this matter in due course.”Even without the Justice Department, the meeting was almost entirely comprised of community engagement and public discussion. Rohner acted as host, and explained a recent study from the Civilian Review and Complaints Commission for the RCMP.The study explains different methods for police oversight, ranging from completely internal to completely done by civilians.This work is new, and Rohner sees an opportunity for Nunavut to lead.“There’s a huge lack of data, a lack of information. That means policy makers are operating in a black box. They’re at a point now where it is trial and error. Because of that, Nunavut has the opportunity to forge its own path, instead of justcopying what they find in other jurisdictions,” said Rohner.Fairchild explained to the crowd how the Legal Services Board of Nunavut helps those charged with a crime, reminding the audience of some of their rights when dealing with police.“You have the right to call a lawyer. I’m a lawyer and if I was arrested, I would call a lawyer. If you’re detained, the question you should have for police is ‘are you free to go’? If you’re not free to go, you’re being detained, and have the right to speak with a lawyer,” said Fairchild.Senator Pate is the former executive director of the Canadian Association of Elizabeth Fry Societies, a group that helps women transition from prison to life outside. She called for more local involvement in correctional choices.“When I was at the jails today, I asked how many non-Inuit were jailed. I was told, most times, there’s nobody but Inuit in the jails here,” said Pate. “It seems to me that the overlay of the system means that those who have come to develop those systems, develop them in what appears to be an equal fashion. But in fact, it’sa completely unequal application, because not everybody is starting on the same foot.”Once the formal part of the presentation was over, the floor was opened for discussion, and two translators tried to translate their culture as well as their words. Mary Wilman and Elisapi Aningmiuq were in attendance, and volunteered to translate after seeing some unilingual elders in the back of the room.After translating, both were urged to speak, providing a long view of Inuit history and of the City of Iqaluit.Aningmiuq told the crowd about the Inuit experience in Iqaluit, where the system can seem overwhelming.“For us, for Inuit, it’s very intimidating to go to the correctional facility, it’s even intimidating to even go to an office sometimes,” said Aningmiuq. “It’s even intimidating to make a phone call. If they say ‘there’s no one here to answer your call at the moment, if it is an unilingual Inuk, they may have no idea what you’re talking about.”Wilman is a former Iqaluit mayor and a longtime Iqaluit resident.Frustration with repeated processes, and disregarding the previous ones, is always a relevant topic at Iqaluit community meetings.“It’s been 40 or 50 years we’ve been talking about these topics. It’s like a broken record, to me. 20 years ago, I was a facilator, and there were wonderful suggestions made at that time,” said Wilman. Kdriscoll@aptn.calast_img read more

Maliotenam inquiry hears about stolen children and police rape

first_imgPierre Paul Niquay, left, Viviane Echaquan Armand Echaquan family of Lorianna Echaquan at the inquiry Monday. Photo: Tom Fennario/APTN)Tom Fennario APTN News Lorianna Echaquan was two and a half months old when she caught pneumonia and was brought to a hospital three hours away from her home in the Atikamekw First Nation of Manawan.That was in 1973 – her family hasn’t seen her since.“He believes that his daughter is still alive and that there was an exchange of babies,” said Pierre Paul Niquay translating the Atikamekw testimony for Lorainne’s father, Arnaud Echaquan.“He’s still waiting for his baby to come back and see her family.”The Echaquan family was the first to testify Monday at the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG) in Maliotenam First Nation, about 900 km northeast of Montreal.They spoke of how Lorianna had died upon arrival at the hospital but the family was only alerted to the fact a month later.When they saw her body, they doubted it was her.“What my mother told me was that when she saw the baby in the casket, it didn’t seem to be her own baby,” said Viviane Echaquan, Lorianne’s sister.“What my mother said to me when we arrived at the funeral home, is ‘that’s not my baby because my baby is small.’”(Alain Arsenault at the Maliotenam hearings. Photo: Tom Fennario/APTN)Inquiry lawyer Alain Arsenault said that there will be a lot of these stories at these hearings.“These are stories that we’re only beginning to understand in Quebec,” said Arsenault.“We always said that the 60’s scoop didn’t happen in Quebec, but I think we are about to show that, yes, it did happen in Quebec and this morning is the first case of an Atikamekw family, but there will be others, of Innu families and more.”Inquiry commissioner Michèle Audette agreed that this week’s inquiry will have an emphasis on the “missing” part of their mandate.“Stolen children, or children that got sick and went to the hospital with their mum, and never came back. We thought there was just a few of them, but there’s maybe, 30, 40, 50 of them in this [Innu] nation.Audette says she is taking strength from having this week’s inquiry in her home community of Maliotenam, although there are challenges as well.“When I was in the room yesterday [for the opening ceremonies] and I mentioned having some of my first experiences here, mostly good ones came to my mind, but there are some dark ones that came too,” said Audette, who has spoken of being abused in the past. “ I went to go see an elder to get grounded.”Audette’s experiences of abuse are not unique here.The Innu First Nations of northeastern Quebec, or Nitassian as they call their territory, struggle with high rates of suicide as well as sexual and physical abuse.Monday’s second testimony by Innu Deborah Einish of Matimekush First Nation provided a harrowing example.“There was cement all around, closed up like a dungeon. I was banging the bars, ‘what am doing here? What am I doing in this cell, confined?’ There was a cop with a pill. There were pills. They brought a cot. When I woke up, I was raped, the police officers raped me, I had taken those pills” said Einish sobbing.“My pants were down to my knees. I was pregnant.”Einish said in 1980 police officers in Schefferville, Que. had handcuffed her outside of a bar after there had been a fight that she said didn’t involve her.From there she was brought to a cell where the alleged rape took place.“I kept this to myself for 37 years, I was not ready to talk about what happened,” said Einish, who did recently speak to a crown prosector but was told there was insufficient evidence to pursue charges.“I would like to be well at one point. I’m furious with the police because they never listened to me. I think there are many women who have kept this to themselves.”Einish’s was proven correct in the very next hearing.(Lise Jourdain testifying at the Maliotenam hearings Monday. Photo: Tom Fennario/APTN)Lise Jourdain, an Innu woman, also spoke of being raped by a police officer in Schefferville.“I attempted suicides three times, the last one left me in coma for three days,” said Jourdain, who described how it took years before she could face what happened to her and why she’s chosen to speak out.“I am bringing up girls, no I can no longer be silent, I can’t close my eyes and ears with regards to what’s happening,” Jourdain stresses.Sixty people are expected to be heard from now until Friday, December 1.last_img read more

first_imgBrittany Hobson APTN News Policing services in First Nations and Inuit communities will receive a boost in federal dollars starting this spring following years of chronic under-funding.The federal government has earmarked $291 million for the First Nations Policing Program that services more than 450 First Nation and Inuit communities across Canada.“It’s budget has been too thin and too short term, subject to periodic extensions and renewals from time to time,” said Ralph Goodale, minister of Public Safety. “The last one of those was in 2013 which locked in agreements with provinces, territories and Indigenous communities until April 1, 2018.”Rick Head, chief of the Dakota Ojibway police (DOPS) in Manitoba, said he hopes this means more support for his officers.“More police officers to place in the various communities that’s what I would hope,” said Head. “A stronger integrated approach so that I can build a team with DOPS that would be oriented to support all the other detachments.”bhobson@aptn.calast_img read more

Ombudsman federal tax relief program needs funding to improve response time

first_imgOTTAWA – The federal government’s Taxpayers’ Ombudsman says the Canada Revenue Agency needs more permanent base funding for a program that provides financial relief to taxpayers who fall behind on payments because of a disaster or hardship.The ombudsman says in a report that it’s partially satisfied with the CRA’s efforts to set a standard for processing relief requests within 180 days, at least 85 per cent of the time, effective April 1, 2017.But it says the CRA’s regional processing times should be more consistent and there needs to be more accuracy in communicating the times to the taxpayers making the requests.The ombudsman says the CRA has implemented or accepted two recommendations, which deal with how taxpayers are notified about the estimated time required to process their request.It also says the CRA has accepted in principle that it should identify the reasons for fluctuations in the number of requests received for tax relief following a flood, fire or other unusual hardship situation.But the ombudsman says its fourth recommendation — for “sufficient permanent funding” to allow for adequate planning and consistency — is still under review as the CRA determines its resource requirements.last_img read more

Auction of mayors stuff will get a surprise sequel

first_imgPHILADELPHIA — An estate sale at the home of polarizing former Mayor Frank Rizzo went like gangbusters over the weekend — and just after it wrapped up, an additional treasure trove of personal items was discovered in the attic, including phone numbers for Frank Sinatra and Richard Nixon, the agent in charge of the sale said Monday.About 40,000 people came through the estate sale, which started Friday and wrapped up Sunday afternoon, said John Romani, who runs Sales by Helen with his mother.Many were police officers and firefighters and ordinary citizens who came to pay their respects, to chat with Rizzo’s son Frank Rizzo Jr., and maybe leave with a trinket or two, he said. Photographs, sweat shirts, suit jackets and Christmas decorations all went.“To a lot of people it was a pilgrimage, an opportunity to say goodbye one more time,” he said. Lots of selfies were taken in the bedroom, he said.Top sellers were Rizzo’s single-digit license plate ($5,000) and Rolodex ($2,500), bought by the same man, who all told spent about $11,000, Romani said.“They really wanted anything with his name on it,” he said. “If it had his name on it, it sold.”A number of billy clubs were up for grabs and went for $1,250 to $1,500, but none was the one the tuxedo-clad Rizzo stuck into his cummerbund when he was police commissioner during a disturbance at a housing project in the 1960s, immortalized in a photo.Rizzo’s wife, Carmella, died in July at age 101, and the family wanted to sell the house and clear it out.Philadelphia has long tried to reconcile the complicated legacy of Rizzo, who served as mayor from 1972 to 1980 and who died in 1991.His friends, family and fans remember him as a devoted public servant unafraid to speak his mind. His detractors saw his police force as corrupt and brutal and said Rizzo alienated minorities both as police commissioner and mayor.After the estate sale wrapped up Sunday, Romani said people going through the house stumbled upon about 20 boxes in the eaves of the attic, containing what Romani called a treasure trove: Rizzo’s gold watch, more Rolodexes (including one with Frank Sinatra’s number), his signed oath of office from 1971, his passports, a gun permit and an unopened box of cigarettes from Air Force One.Also found was what Romani calls Rizzo’s “little black book.” The well-worn booklet has handwritten contact information that reads like a who’s who of the 1970s, including Richard Nixon’s phone number.Romani estimates about 50 to 100 historically significant items were found after the sale wrapped up.The priority now, he said, is selling the home in the city’s leafy Chestnut Hill section. It’s on the market for $1.695 million.The newly discovered items and some of the pieces that didn’t get snapped up in the estate sale will now head to auction Jan. 29 at Uniques & Antiques in Aston, Pennsylvania, he said.Kristen De Groot, The Associated Presslast_img read more

first_imgNew Delhi: Charging the government at the Centre, which is led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi of, ‘inaction’ against Nirav Modi despite evidences that are available in the public domain, the Congress on Friday questioned as to what was stopping the NDA government from taking action against the fugitive diamond merchant.Addressing a press conference on Friday, party’s national spokesperson Pawan Khera said, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who claims himself as ‘Desh ka Chowkidar’, and his government slept and snoozed while Chhota Modi (Nirav Modi) looted crores, fled the country, posed with the PM, globe-trotted the world, opened a new diamond business in London which have a Panama Papers Connection.” Also Read – How a psychopath killer hid behind the mask of a devout laity! “It’s a very simple question for the government as if the Congress can expose this entire chain of events, why the same cannot be done by premier investigative agencies of the Modi government even after 14 months of his escape?” Khera asked. “Nirav Modi, who escaped the country in January 2018, travelled the world until November 2018. Even after his passport was revoked in February 2018, he travelled to at least six countries — UK, UAE, Hong Kong, France and Germany,” the Congress leader said. Also Read – Encounter under way in Pulwama, militant killedExposing Nirav Modi’s new ventures, the Congress leader said, “The evidences now establish that Nirav Modi opened a new company called ‘Diamond Holdings’ in the UK on May 24, 2018.” According to official documents, Diamond Holdings deals with wholesale of watches and jewellery, retail sales of watches and jewellery in specialised stores and specialised design activities, he said. As per the documents, the fugitive diamond merchant is currently living in Centre Point apartment tower on Companies House and the registered address of the company is 4th floor, Scottish Provident House, 76/80 College Road, Harrow. “According to the title deeds, the apartment was shockingly bought for £7.95 million in cash on January 5, 2018, which make it clear that Nirav Modi had fled on January 1, 2018, with almost £8 million in cash,” he said.
