Opinion Edmonton Eskimos is a racial slur and its time to stop

first_imgNorma Dunning University of Alberta Special to APTN News The Edmonton Eskimos had a big football game Sunday and thousands of people in my hometown who hoped their team would make it to the Grey Cup were ultimately disappointed. But when I think of my city’s Canadian Football League team, I have a different hope — that it will soon stop using the word “Eskimos.”The use of the Eskimos name has been a recurring issue for the past few years, especially since Natan Obed, national Inuit leader for Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami, called for the elimination of the name as part of his organization’s ongoing fight against colonization in the name of reconciliation.“The colonial legacy of naming is about power and control,” said Obed. “The issue of Inuit being used as a sports team mascot matters, because this is the way this legacy continues to play out in popular culture.”As an Inuit scholar and writer, I have also spoken on this topic several times, both with the media and within my own work.The Edmonton Eskimos are an institution and, like most institutions, want to appear as though they are helping and respecting the less fortunate or the underdogs of society. The Edmonton football team has said they use their name with pride. In fact, they are disrespecting and suppressing Inuit peoples.By using the word Eskimos, they are perpetuating the ideas that go along with the word. Firstly, the word Eskimo word is not used by my peoples, and secondly, they are perpetuating the concept that Inuit do not have the abilities required for present-day modern living.I live in Edmonton — a city that presents itself as being progressive and modern. So why continue to use a term circulated by anthropologists hundreds of years ago?More importantly, why continue to make use of a word that is considered to be — by the people most affected — a racial slur?In my creative work, when I make use of the word Eskimo it is to bring attention to the ongoing colonization of Inuit peoples in Canada. Sadly, most of the Canadian population has been indoctrinated into the grand narrative of our country’s history in which Aboriginal Canadians are absent.Therefore, the general population is led to believe the word Eskimo is harmless. This is rhetoric, constantly generated by media, to an audience that is uninformed or misinformed about the truth of Inuit existence in Canada.Economic disparityThe issue is not only about the use of a word, it is also about the disparity that Inuit Canadians live within on a daily basis. It is about Inuit as the smallest group of Aboriginal Canadians, holding the rank of first place in all the statistics that point to poverty, food scarcity and high attrition rates in high school.Painful and abusive rhetoric has both emotional and financial costs. From where I stand, “The Edmonton Eskimos” have done very well financially off of the word Eskimo. However, I do not see where the team or the CFL has given back to Inuit Canadians as a whole.Inuit are contributing citizens of Canada. We have always paid full taxes. We do not receive any form of individual payment for the resources that are harvested within the northern areas of Canada.Any profits received from the resources that Canada or a foreign industry pay for the right to harvest, is placed into a heritage trust account, ensuring that Inuit history and language is sustained into future generations.The public may think that a land claims agreement represents a huge payout to Inuit in the north, but it does not. It represents an agreement that places the federal government into a position of fulfilling a fiduciary obligation towards the people whose land and resources they wanted.True ways to reconciliationMy opposition of the use of the word Eskimo by a major football team is not just about cultural appropriation.Eliminating the use of the word Eskimo is about the empowerment and respect required and demanded by Inuit Canadians.I heard on CBC Calgary that a small social media survey was taken within the northern areas of Canada where the response was in favour of the word, Eskimo. I also believe that if one Inuit person says, “I don’t mind it. That’s what we are!” the media and the institutions that hold power will feel justified in how they use the word.Last week, Global News reported on a national survey which found only 21 per cent of Canadians believed the Eskimos team name to be unacceptable. In Alberta, that number was just 12 per cent. But this was a poll of only 1,005 people. Clearly, media can present information that leaves out important facts, and does not give a true representation of an issue. Perhaps this can be interpreted as yet another way an institution protects itself.Another issue is some non-Inuit may feel that by supporting a football team named the Eskimos, they have somehow engaged with Inuit culture or are supporting an Aboriginal group. But Inuit never invented or played football traditionally. Inuit traditional sport is more complex, requiring an intersection of finesse and skill.Perhaps becoming involved in the Arctic Games, or informing oneself on what Inuit culture is, could be a form of personal reconciliation that mainstream society could take up.I speak from what I know. What I know is the name of a football team generates a great deal of passion and energy. I would like to see that passion and energy from the fans and general public put into the social justice issues that the Inuit represent. If that happened, what a beautiful world we would live in.Inuttigut.

Loonie dips as US factory data strengthens greenback

The Canadian dollar fell back Wednesday morning as the U.S. dollar got a boost from encouraging economic data and traders tread cautiously ahead of a two-day summit of eurozone leaders in Brussels that starts Thursday.The loonie lost 0.16 of a cent to 97.50 cents US.Data from the U.S. Wednesday showed businesses placed more orders with U.S. factories for long-lasting manufactured goods in May. The increase suggests companies remain confident in the U.S. economy despite a weaker job market and a likely recession in Europe.The Commerce Department said that orders for durable goods rose 1.1 per cent in May after two months of declines.Meanwhile, stats from the National Association of Realtors showed Americans signed more contracts to buy previously occupied homes in May, matching the fastest pace in two years. The increase suggests home sales will rise this summer and the modest housing recovery will continue.The organization’s index of sales agreements increased to 101.1 last month from 95.5 in April. That matches March’s reading, the highest since April 2010, when a home-buying tax credit boosted sales.Focus is turning to the two-day summit of EU leaders starting Thursday in Brussels. No substantial progress in solving the eurozone’s debt crisis is expected at the meeting, which may lead to renewed pessimism about European demand for crude.Many experts say eurobonds are the answer to the currency zone’s problems as they would allow help lower indebted countries’ borrowing costs, easing the risk they may need a bailout. But Germany is reluctant to expose itself to new potential costs and is concerned that eurobonds may ease the pressure on countries like Greece and Spain to reform their economies.The Canadian dollar’s value relative to the U.S. currency “is caught in the same tight ranges that are confining most currency pairs leading into the summit,” said John Curran, senior vice-president at Canadian Forex.The August crude contract moved up 79 cents to US$80.15 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.Crude has fallen to near eight-month lows from US$106 a barrel less than two months ago amid signs economic growth and oil demand are slowing in the U.S., Europe and China.Curran notes that there’s a chance that crude oil inventories data due out later Wednesday may impact an already depressed oil price.“There is a strong chance that these peers are searching for something to trade off and will happily do so on any relevant (or perceived relevant) information. Having said that, USD/CAD does have an extremely high correlation to oil and a further gain in inventories will weigh on the CAD.”The August gold contract fell $1.90 to US$1,573, while the July copper contract was three cents higher at US$3.34.Traders were also digesting news that ratings agency DBRS confirmed the top long- and short-term AAA and R-1 (high) ratings for the Government of Canada, citing Canada’s “credible fiscal recovery plan” and “strong track record of outperformance.” read more

Suspect in Maldives blast arrested in Lanka

Allam is also a close associate of the now detained vice president. He is one of the four shareholders of a company that owns Hibilhadhoo island in Baa Atoll, which is being developed as a resort, from where the armed forces had discovered a large weapons stash. “I urge them to come here voluntarily and cooperate with the investigation. Otherwise, we’ll have to bring them through the Interpol,” the minister said, during the press conference at the President’s Office capital Male.“They’ve been evading justice after committing an act of terrorism in the Maldives.”In addition to Ashraf, the other identified suspects are Mohamed Allam Latheef, Mohamed Hussein, Mohamed Visham, Mohamed Aseel Ahmed, Hussein Sinan and Ahmed Ishfah Ali. Police confirmed the arrest but did not say when Ashraf would be repatriated by the Sri Lankan authorities. Vice President Adheeb was arrested last week over the blast aboard the presidential speedboat carrying the president in September.President Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom and First Lady Fathimath Ibrahim were travelling to Male from the airport on September 28 when the explosion took place. They had returned home that morning after concluding their visit to Saudi Arabia to perform the annual hajj pilgrimage. (Colombo Gazette) One of the eight suspects wanted in connection to the explosion aboard the presidential speedboat late September was arrested in Sri Lanka late Sunday, Haveeru reported.Ahmed Ashraf, known by his social media moniker of Shumba Gong, is a self-declared supporter of the embattled vice president Ahmed Adheeb Abdul Ghafoor. The weapons showcased during a press conference Saturday included several hand guns, a T56 assault rifle and a MP5 sub-machine gun. In addition, a large quantity of bomb making material were also displayed at the press briefing.However, Allam who is believed to be in UK, through his lawyer had denied any knowledge of the weapons found in the island.Adheeb’s relative had been arrested in Malaysia and repatriated to the Maldives as the crackdown on the VP’s close associates continued before and after his arrest. Maldivian authorities had on Sunday warned an international manhunt would be launched if the suspects did not return to the Maldives voluntarily.Home minister Umar Naseer who heads a national enquiry commission constituted by the president to investigate the blast had said the suspects were in neighbouring countries like Sri Lanka and Thailand. His last tweet believed to be sent just before his arrest read “Some ppl smashed my doors trying to come in. May Allah protect us all!” read more

Does the first supervised injecting centre need to be in the city centre? Some business owners say no. NEW LAWS TO set up a pilot drug injecting centre in Dublin have been making their way through the Oireachtas, and were debated in the Seanad this week.There are already over 100 of these centres around the world in countries like Germany, Spain, Canada and Australia – and backers of the Irish facility argue that they cut down overdose deaths dramatically, stem the spread of diseases like HIV and reduce levels of crime and anti-social behaviour.The establishment of such a centre, however, would represent a fundamental change in how problem drug use is normally dealt with – so it’s no surprise that, in every country, when this idea has first been proposed, it’s been met with fierce debate.The head of the Restaurants Association of Ireland, Adrian Cummins, and Dr Garrett McGovern, a specialist in addiction medicine who has clinics in Dublin city centre, joined us at TheJournal.ie’s offices to debate the location of the planned centre.The proposal is to locate the first facility in Dublin city centre, and its backers argue that it needs to be in a central location if it is to have its desired effect. A number of groups, including the restaurants association, have argued that the centre should be placed outside the city.- Debate moderated by Daragh Brophy, video by Nicky Ryan Short URLlast_img read more

Sturgeon retention to close in Bonneville The Dalles pools

first_imgSturgeon angling in the Bonneville and The Dalles pools of the Columbia River will close for retention beginning March 25, Washington and Oregon officials agreed today.Bonneville Pool has a catch guideline of 325 sturgeon, which is split between winter and summer seasons.John North of the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife said anglers had kept 68 sturgeon through Sunday. He estimated the catch through March 24 would total 90 to 100 sturgeon.That leaves a balance of 225 to 235 sturgeon, which is enough for one, or possibly two, days of retention in summer, North said.Sturgeon retention opened Jan. 1 in Bonneville pool, resulting in 83 days of retention in the winter. The average is 43 days.North said inclement weather and cold water reduced fishing effort in the Columbia Gorge this winter.The summer season typically is in mid-June. It will be set later.The Dalles pool has a catch guideline of 100 sturgeon.Through Sunday, the harvest was 62 sturgeon, with the catch averaging close to three fish per day, North said.The March 25 closure is for the balance of 2017. There is no split season in The Dalles or John Day pools.John Day pool has a catch guideline of 105 sturgeon, with 43 caught through Sunday.North said a closure date for John Day pool is likely to be set within the next two weeks, depending on catch rate.last_img read more

Final Sitka landslide victim recovered

first_imgSitka building official William Stortz. (KCAW file photo)Search crews have recovered the final victim of the Aug. 18 Sitka landslide. The body of 62-year-old William Stortz was found Tuesday afternoon.Download AudioHeavy equipment operators had been working at several locations identified by search dogs. A road was built up to the observation area at the south end of the slide, and a plywood boardwalk installed to improve the mobility of search crews on the ground. Searchers were under pressure to take advantage of two days of good weather before more rain arrives Thursday.Now that all the victims have been found, city officials estimate at least another 30 days of work to clear Kramer Avenue.Municipal administrator Mark Gorman was a longtime friend of William Stortz, who served as Sitka’s building official since 2011. In a press release, Gorman writes “William was hard-working, intelligent and a very kind man. Our family knew him and he was well-respected throughout Sitka.”Stortz died in the Aug. 18 slide along with brothers Elmer and Ulises Diaz, who were painting a new house in the Kramer subdivision.Catholic services for the Diaz brothers have been scheduled for 6 p.m. this Friday at Grace Harbor Church, which served as the unofficial headquarters of the recovery operation. A memorial for William Stortz will be held at 4 p.m. Saturday in the Odess Theater on the Sitka Fine Arts Campus.last_img read more

AK Food trucks forging way into Anchorage downtown dining scene

first_imgJim Adkison, Mackenzie Moen, and Gene Pavia navigate the tight confines of the food truck “Tasty Traveler.” (Photo by Josh Edge/APRN)Lunchtime options in downtown Anchorage have long been dominated by traditional brick-and-mortar restaurants, but now, hungry downtown diners will have some new options near the Park Strip, at a space that has been converted into a food truck forum for the newly-minted K Street Eats.Download AudioBlythe Campbell: “I’m gonna have the chimichurri steak tacos, please.”Jim Adkison: “Awesome, and what kind of salsa would you like to do with that?”Handwritten menus and coolers full of drinks decorate the outside of “Tasty Traveler.” (Photo by Josh Edge/APRN)Blythe is one of the first customers on the inaugural day of K Street Eats, and she’s chosen tacos from the food truck “Tasty Traveler.” The truck is a member of the mobile junction, angling to be a new lunchtime hangout in downtown Anchorage.The space was a makeshift overflow parking lot, but has since been covered with a large canopy tent, picnic tables – and, of course, food trucks adorned with colorful, hand-written signs with the day’s menu.“Today we’ve got some cupcakes, some hot sauces – a hot sauce truck that has all sorts of stuff – some tacos, some pour-over coffee, some waffles, that’s what I’m having today for lunch by the way,” Darrin Huycke, the owner, operator and organizer of K Street Eats, said.Seven food trucks took part in the opening day of K Street Eats. (Photo by Josh Edge/APRN)The space can accommodate up to 15 food trucks and carts, and Darrin says the vendor line up will change daily.He has been organizing food truck carnivals in Anchorage for about four years, and he says business is booming:“Some of these trucks are actually trucks that were at the beginning,” he said. “That blue one right there used to be Urban Bamboo, that white and blue one right there used to be Tears from Heaven – it was a cupcake truck, you know.”“It’s just kind of weird to see that go down in the four years, but there’s been 50 businesses I’ve had on record, so far, and I already know of at least 25 more that are opening this year.”And he says most of those new ones are opening specifically to come to K Street Eats.I venture back over to the “Tasty Traveler,” where Blythe Campbell is waiting for her tacos. She works downtown for the NANA Regional Corporation, and is excited for the new lunch options, especially as Anchorage warms up.Jim Adkison serves the some of the first customers of the day at “Tasty Traveler.” (Photo by Josh Edge/APRN)“Now that it’s a little springier, you know, we get out and sometimes we’ll walk to New Sagaya or we’ll walk downtown, but most of the time you just get in your car, and so this is really fun to have the food trucks so close by,” she said.Blythe gets her food and walks back to her office to eat, but I get a glimpse of her chimichurri steak tacos – and they look delicious, so I order a couple of my own.Jim Adkison, his co-owner, Gene Pavia, and sous chef, Mackenzie Moen, are maneuvering the tight confines of the truck in the narrow walkway lined with sinks, counters, cutting boards, and cook-tops.“You definitely gotta know the people around you and make sure they’re okay with you leaning on them, or touching you, or you bumping them out of the way,” Jim said. “So, it’s definitely very personal.”Jim walks me through the makings of his chimichurri taco:Mackenzie Moen assembles an order of the food truck’s tacos. (Photo by Josh Edge/APRN)“We grill the steak to order, it’s gonna be served on top of a little guacamole, sweet cabbage slaw, and then we slice the steak, layer it on top of that with Pico de Gallo, cotija cheese, and a little more of the chimichurri,” he said, as Mackenzie assembles the dish.Once the tacos are all put together, I head outside to chow down on my meal, complete with homemade chips and salsa.I sit down at a picnic table with Ryan Diehl. He’s a fellow taco truck customer and works for the Alaska Railroad downtown. He opted for the Tasty Traveler’s Thai-rito, which is a Thai-influenced pulled pork burrito with a carrot, cucumber, cabbage and peanut slaw, topped with a curry sauce.“It’s very refreshing, kind of a nice curry blend in the meat,” Ryan said. “It’s excellent.”But, would he order it again?“I’ve gotta try one of everything first, but, yeah, I would have it again,” he said.That’s good news for Jim Adkison – Tasty Traveler’s owner.Prior to his days in the mobile kitchen, Jim spent his time cooking at successful downtown staples like Orso’s, Glacier Brewhouse and Sacks Café, but he says food trucks offer a perk seldom found in traditional kitchens:“You get to meet your customers that are coming to the food truck, where in a restaurant you’re hidden behind walls, and this way you can really just talk to people and tell them about what you’re preparing and just get more of a social interaction,” Jim said.It’s a concept I certainly appreciate, as I complete my gastronomic quest with one final social interaction – to buy myself a chocolate bacon cupcake.last_img read more

Theyre Making the Sega Mega DriveGenesis Again

first_img Hands-On: ‘Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020’ Seems FineSega Genesis Mini Heats Up Retro Console Wars This September Stay on target Most people may not know that the Sega Mega Drive (or Sega Genesis as it was known in North America) is one of the most popular gaming consoles in Brazil. The system sells around 150,000 units per year; a number that rivals that of the PlayStation 4. It is fitting then that Brazil’s Tectoy would start manufacturing new Mega Drive systems. Though not manufactured by Sega, these new systems are officially licensed and are therefore the genuine article.Tectoy was the manufacturer of the Mega Drive not only during the system’s heyday but even long afterwards. The company has produced different versions of the Mega Drive throughout the years and even put out some new games for it. This current Mega Drive is designed to look and play like the original one released in 1989. It comes with 22 games pre-loaded into its internal memory and with an original three-button controller.The system is so old-school that it only features AV cables. You can’t plug this into a modern TV since it has no HDMI slot. This seems kind of odd, but since most folks in Brazil don’t have modern TV sets, this shouldn’t a problem for anyone in the country.Like with the NES Classic Edition, it’s always nice to see an old system get a new lease on life. Considering how there have been countless Sega Mega Drive/Genesis collections containing more games released over the years, this particular console doesn’t seem like it’ll be worth it. It’s priced at roughly $138, not including any import fees. That’s a lot of money for something that doesn’t even work on a modern TV. While we commend Tectoy for manufacturing the original Mega Drive again, it might be best for the rest of us to leave this system in Brazil and get our Genesis fix via easier and more cost effective means.last_img read more

Google Public DNS supports DNSoverTLS but you probably cant use it right

first_imgGoogle Public DNS supports DNS-over-TLS: but you probably can’t use it right now by Martin Brinkmann on January 14, 2019 in Google – 28 commentsGoogle revealed last week that it added support for the privacy feature DNS-over-TLS to  the company’s public DNS service Google Public DNS.Google launched Google Public DNS in 2009 at a time when many Internet companies started to hop on the DNS bandwagon. Some companies exited the DNS business again, Symantec retired Norton ConnectSafe (DNS) in 2018, while others such as Cloudflare, Verisign, Quad9 DNS or AdGuard DNS launched in recent years.Google claims that its service is the “world’s largest public Domain Name Server (DNS) recursive resolver”; it turns domain names into IP addresses required for communication on the Internet.DNS-over-TLS and DNS-over-HTTPS are two approaches to making DNS requests more private by using encryption. One of the main differences between the two implementations is the port that is used. DNS-over-TLS uses port 853, DNS-over-HTTPS the standard HTTPS port 443.Mozilla started to experiment with DNS-over-HTTPS in recent development versions of Firefox already, and it is likely that other browser makers and DNS provider will start to support these privacy features eventually as well.Google implemented the DNS-over-TLS specification outlined in RFC7766.and suggestions to improve the implementation; Google’s implementation uses TLS 1.3 and supports TCP fast open, and pipelining.Most experts would probably agree that encrypting DNS to improve privacy and security, e.g. from tampering, is beneficial and desirable.The main issue with Google’s implementation at this point in time is that it is not widely available. It is supported on Android 9 devices only at the time officially, and as a stubby resolver for Linux.Google’s implementation guideline highlights for Windows and Mac OS X that the operating systems don’t support DNS-over-TLS by default. The only option at this point to add support would be to set up a proxy resolver according to Google.Windows users may use something like Simple DNSCrypt to encrypt DNS trafficClosing WordsUsers who use Google DNS already benefit from google’s implementation of DNS-over-TLS provided that it is supported on their devices or set up using proxies. Users who don’t trust Google or don’t want to send all their DNS traffic to Google won’t start using Google Public DNS because encryption does not change that.Now You: Which DNS provider do you use, and why?SummaryArticle NameGoogle Public DNS supports DNS-over-TLS: but you probably can’t use it right nowDescriptionGoogle revealed last week that it added support for the privacy feature DNS-over-TLS to the company’s public DNS service Google Public DNS.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Obama May Tap FDIC Official for Comptroller

first_imgObama May Tap FDIC Official for Comptroller Share As officials consider a “”new candidate to head””:https://themreport.com/articles/obama-mulls-warren-substitute-2011-06-10 the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Obama administration may soon nominate a state and federal banking regulator to lead the “”Office of the Comptroller of the Currency””:http://www.occ.gov (OCC).[IMAGE]According to the _New York Times_, the administration may put forward Thomas Curry, a current member of the board of directors of the FDIC and a past bank commissioner for Massachusetts, to fill the role of comptroller of the currency.Curry took a spot on the FDIC board in January 2004. Despite the expiration of his six-year term in 2010, he continues to serve in lieu of a replacement needed to fill his position and currently leads the agency’s assessment appeals and case review committees as chairman. [COLUMN_BREAK]Prior to joining the FDIC, Curry served five Massachusetts governors as the Commonwealth’s commissioner of banks from 1990 to 1991 and from 1995 to 2003, and as acting commissioner from 1994 to 1995. He has held the role of chairman of the Conference of State Bank Supervisors from 2000 to 2001 and served two terms on the State Liaison Committee of the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council.Currently, Curry also serves as chairman of the board of directors for NeighborWorks America, a national non-profit organization chartered by Congress to provide financial support, technical assistance, and training for community-based neighborhood revitalization efforts. If nominated by the White House and confirmed by Congress for the comptroller of the currency position, Curry would return to the FDIC’s board as a permanent member. The _Wall Street Journal_ reported that his nomination would mark the first time the Obama administration has moved on confirmations since its other nominees withdrew their names for top positions at the Federal Reserve Board and Federal Housing Finance Agency.””Given how difficult it has been for extremely highly qualified nominees to make it through the Senate confirmation process, I think a lot of people are reluctant,”” to take the posts, Michael Barr, a former Treasury official, told the _Journal_. “”It’s hard to find good people,”” he said.
