Four stories in the news for Thursday, Dec. 20———WOMEN’S HOCKEY TEAM ADDS VOICE TO SEATBELT PUSHPlayers with the University of Alberta Pandas women’s hockey team are adding their voices to calls for mandatory seatbelts on team buses. The women’s team was returning to Edmonton from a game in Calgary on November 24th when its chartered bus clipped a semi that was pulled over on the highway. Several of the players say their first thoughts were about the Humboldt Broncos crash. Sixteen people were killed and 13 players were injured in April after a bus carrying the Saskatchewan junior hockey team and a semi collided.———MAN GUILTY OF KILLING CALGARY WOMAN AND HER DAUGHTERTearful loved ones stood and applauded after a jury found a man guilty of first-degree murder in the deaths of a Calgary woman and her five-year-old daughter. Edward Downey, 48, had testified he didn’t kill Sara Baillie and Taliyah Marsman in July 2016. “Now, I can go home and bury Sara and Taliyah’s ashes and forever let them rest in peace,” Baillie’s mother, Janet Fredette, said after Wednesday’s verdict. The conviction comes with an automatic life sentence, but it has yet to be determined whether Downey will have to wait 25 or 50 years to be eligible for parole.———BILL TO PREVENT STRIKE AT OPG EXPECTED TO PASSThe Ontario government is expected to pass legislation today that would prevent a strike or lockout at a utility that provides roughly half of the province’s power. The government called legislators back from the holiday break on Monday in an effort to end the dispute between the Power Workers’ Union and Ontario Power Generation, saying the move was necessary to stave off outages. The Progressive Conservatives say their bill, if passed, will send the matter to arbitration so it can be resolved without jeopardizing the province’s electricity supply.———SMOKE TOP WEATHER STORY IN CANADA THIS YEARChoking from smoke, sweltering in the heat or cursing early or late snow, Canadians could be forgiven for asking just what the heck happened to the weather in 2018. “It was almost a smorgasbord of everything that could go wrong,” said David Phillips, senior climate scientist for Environment Canada. Smoke, said Phillips, was Canada’s top weather story this year. Driven by hot, dry conditions, the number of fires was higher than last year and the area burned was double the 25-year averages. Smoke from wildfires in British Columbia and down the Pacific Coast to California darkened skies and soured air for more than 10 million Canadians.———ALSO IN THE NEWS:— A court appearance is scheduled today for three people who pleaded guilty to a naked kidnapping near Leduc, Alta., in November 2017.— Unifor national president Jerry Dias holds news conference following a meeting with General Motors on the future of the Oshawa, Ont. assembly plant.— BlackBerry will hold a conference call today to discuss financial results from its fiscal 2019 third quarter.The Canadian Press

WASHINGTON — The Latest on the U.S.-China trade talks in Washington (all times local):3:20 p.m.President Donald Trump says he will consider delaying a March 2 deadline to reach a trade deal with Beijing before he would escalate his tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese imports.Trump told reporters that he would “certainly consider” an extension if trade talks are going well. He said that talks between China and the United States in Washington will be extended through this weekend to give the countries more time to reach a breakthrough in their trade dispute. The two economic powers are engaged in a standoff that has worried financial markets and likely weakened the global economy.A Chinese team led by Vice Premier Liu He has been meeting with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and other American officials.The U.S. has imposed 25 per cent tariffs on $50 billion in Chinese imports and 10 per cent tariffs on $200 billion worth; the tariffs on the $200 billion are scheduled to rise to 25 per cent if there’s no deal.The Associated Press

When it meets this week, though, don’t expect any timetable for a rate hike to be spelled out in a post-meeting statement. For now, the Fed wants to keep its options open.Yet Chair Janet Yellen has left little doubt that the Fed is preparing to raise short-term rates by year’s end from the record lows the central bank set at the depths of the 2008 financial crisis. With the U.S. economy and job market now steadily rising, the need for ultra-low rates to stimulate growth is fading.“Our economy is in a much better state,” Yellen told Congress earlier this month. “We’re close to where we want to be, and we now think the economy can not only tolerate but needs higher rates.”The economy still faces an array of threats, from subpar U.S. manufacturing and business investment to troubles in Europe and Asia, which have roiled financial markets. Inflation also remains below the Fed’s target rate. And while the unemployment rate, at 5.3 per cent, is nearly normal, other gauges of the job market remain less than healthy. Pay growth remains generally sluggish, for example, and many people are working part time because they can’t find full-time jobs.But Yellen has stressed that when the Fed begins to raise rates, it will do so only gradually. The idea is to avoid weakening an economy that’s still benefiting from low borrowing rates resulting from the Fed’s policies.Yellen has suggested that raising rates in small increments, followed by pauses, would let the Fed assess the effects of slightly higher rates. Higher rates would also allow the Fed to respond later to any weakening of the economy by cutting rates again.Though many economists foresee the first rate hike in September, when Yellen is scheduled to hold a news conference, others think the Fed might wait until December. On Wednesday, after its latest meeting ends, the Fed will issue only a statement.“The recent volatility in the global economy and financial markets has given the Fed pause,” said Sung Won Sohn, an economics professor at the Martin Smith School of Business at California State University, Channel Islands. “I think the probability of a rate hike in September has diminished because the Fed is going to need more time to evaluate how the U.S. economy is doing. December looks like a good possibility.”During Yellen’s testimony to Congress this month, some Democrats urged her to consider delaying a rate hike given that inflation remains below the Fed’s 2 per cent target. The Fed has typically raised rates when it perceives a need to prevent inflation from getting out of control.Part of the slowdown in inflation, though, reflects a plunge in oil prices over the past year, which will reverse itself once energy prices rebound.The Fed is closer to achieving its other main goal: Maximizing employment. The unemployment rate is at a seven-year low, and over the past three months, U.S. hiring has averaged a robust 221,000 a month.Economists who think the Fed will act in September point not only to low unemployment but also to signs of strength in such areas as housing and consumer spending.“The economy has a lot of momentum, and if you don’t start raising rates off zero, then it will be hard to curtail that momentum and inflation will become a problem down the road,” said Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics.There’s also some concern that prolonged ultra-low rates may have begun to inflate dangerous bubbles in certain assets.“The longer the Fed waits, the greater the bubbles will become in stock and bond prices and the more potential damage that could occur to the markets when the Fed finally acts,” said economist David Jones, the author of several books on Fed policy.Concern about igniting an overreaction in financial markets is a key reason economists think the Fed will show extreme caution in raising rates. Stocks and bonds suffered sharp declines in 2013 after the Fed initially mishandled its communications about when it would begin slowing a bond purchase program that was intended to keep long-term rates low.“It has been so long since the Fed raised rates that the situation could be volatile,” said Diane Swonk, chief economist at Mesirow Financial. “I believe the Fed is going to raise rates once, most likely in September, and then wait for some time before raising them again to judge market reaction.” This June 19, 2015 photo shows the Marriner S. Eccles Federal Reserve Board Building, in Washington.

Faithful Geek readers who surf with Google Chrome wouldn’t be fooled by the extension listed above. But the fact that it’s pretending to be Adobe Flash Player coupled with the fact that it’s hiding out in the official Chrome Web Store is more than enough to trick some users — about a thousand so far.Security researchers at Kaspersky Labs spotted this wave of malicious extensions in Brazil, where Chrome has become the most popular web browser in the country. Fraudsters took that into account when hatching their scheme, which involves selling Facebook likes to unscrupulous types who want to give their brands a boost and don’t care to play by the rules. The going rate is about $27 for 1,000 likes.To push their cash-for-likes system, the people behind these extensions are sneakily advertising them on Facebook. As is the case with a lot of social imaging malware, the ads claim to offer users a way to re-color their profiles or track who’s looking at them — or even to remove the “virus” that’s infecting their profiles. Once installed, the extensions begin spamming likes and posting messages to walls enticing other users to download.As long as you’re paying attention, you’re not likely to get caught in a snare like this. If you’re after a Facebook profile customizer, a Chrome extension that appears to be Flash Player obviously isn’t what you were looking for and you should skip installing it. That goes double since you’re using Chrome, which already has its own built-in Flash Player anyway.Malicious extensions in the Chrome Web Store aren’t a new thing, but this activity in Brazil shows that the bad guys are hatching more elaborate plots and employing techniques similar to those used by Android Market/Google Play malware. Guess it’s time for Google to turn Bouncer loose on the Web Store, too.More at Kaspersky

It shows that over a period of 10 weeks from April to June, Crabill visited Houston nearly every weekend and had over two dozen meetings with community leaders, education advocates and others. They met at places like House of Pies, Hotel Zaza, private homes and community centers.Mark Jones, a political science professor at Rice University, said that there are two ways to look at the situation.“The negative perspective is that these meetings are being held with private individuals and groups, out of the public eye,” Jones said. “The positive, though, is that these meetings are actually taking place and we’re not just having someone in Austin say, ‘This is the law of the land, this is the way it’s going to be, we don’t care what anyone else thinks.’”Jones added that it would be more in line with good governance to have a public forum in addition to private meetings for sensitive conversations. X “If I was going to be charitable, I think what the (Texas Education Agency) and Deputy Commissioner Crabill wanted to avoid is political posturing and a soap box and a media circus, and instead try to meet with the individual groups, see what their concerns were and then go back to Austin and craft a plan that is amenable to all sides,” Jones said.News 88.7 confirmed with at least two participants that Crabill discussed the state law that triggers a school board takeover, known as House Bill 1842.Last school year, the Houston school district managed to avoid a state board of managers or closing several schools. However, it must continue to improve to continue to avoid those penalties. Listen
I spend most of the time surfing in Hermosa or Jacó, but I’ll occasionally road trip out to Guanacaste, the Southern Pacific, Limón or Santa Teresa to rip some waves.When I go to these places I have friends that guide me and point me to some sweet secret spots and amazing locations I never would’ve thought existed so close to home.I’ll start you off with some of the more popular spots.Difficulty will vary from spot to spot, and you should choose where you feel more comfortable and likely to surf. Jacó, Tamarindo and Puerto Viejo are the three most important surf towns.Not only will you be able to connect with the ocean and its waves, but there’s also plenty of food and nightlife that won’t let you down.Jacó, in the Central Pacific, is the best spot to learn and start getting used to duck diving, paddling, floating, and getting in sync with the ocean. It has a beginner’s level of difficulty, yet when the proper swell hits its coast waves up to 7 feet and you will be able to rip lefts and rights. Noe Mar McGonagle came in third in the Men’s Open after a close final at the 2016 ISA World Surfing Games in Jacó, Puntarenas. (Courtesy: Alfredo Barquero/Costa Rica Surf Federation)The best time to surf Jacó will always be the mornings when there’s little to no wind, yet the tide must be in sync too. Afternoons tend to be windy and this has a negative effect on the waves. But when the elements are properly aligned, the afternoon session can become extremely fun. The best tide to surf Jacó will always be two hours before high tide peak and the next two hours after.Tamarindo is a great option for beginners as well. It has several surf schools for those interested in knowing the basics. The waves are mostly small to medium-sized and perfect to practice and learn this magnificent sport. VIDEO: Four things to avoid in your first surfing lesson A hidden gem on the Central Pacific: Boca Barranca If you’re with friends who aren’t ocean-driven, you will have multiple options to get grub or a fresh beverage and enjoy the view. If you enjoy nightlife, then Tamarindo will serve a wide menu of options to go out partying with your friends and some locals.Playa Grande is one of the most popular spots on the northern Pacific coast. It’s known for its recurrent offshore wind, sunny days and its extensive right-hand waves. Playa Grande, like Hermosa, can change from one day to another. Sometimes it has small waves and is perfect for the family. If you come during summer and get a solid swell, there’s a high chance you’ll even find some shade in these blue-water barrels. It’s literally right next to Tamarindo and if you don’t want to drive your car a few miles, you can pay a couple of bucks for a boat ride that will take you across the estuary that divides these two beaches. Costa Rica’s 2015 National Surfing Champion Jason Torres gets air off a wave at Playa Hermosa’s famous “La Curva,” which is located within the Punta Mala wildlife refuge. (Lindsay Fendt/The Tico Times)Hermosa, also known as the National Stadium of Surfing, is one of the most popular spots throughout the country. You can find this spot in the Central Pacific just five minutes away from Jacó. Legends like Kelly Slater have surfed it: he said it’s one of his favorite surfing spots in the world. Local legends like the Muñoz brothers (Carlos and Alberto), Alvaro Solano and the McGonagle siblings (Noe and Leilani) will use it as their training spot.If there are no waves anywhere else, go to Hermosa. Regardless of the swell forecast, Hermosa will always have waves to offer. Its difficulty level can change from amateur to pro from one day to another. If you have never surfed before in your life, Hermosa is not recommended for you. You might get surprised by a massive set at any time, and you wouldn’t be the first one to break a board in this epic spot. Some board carnage from Playa Hermosa (Manuel Martínez / The Tico Times)Salsa Brava, the spicy sauce, is also not recommended for just anyone. Located in the beautiful southern Caribbean coast, this coral sanctuary will pump you full of adrenaline and possibly give you a harsh date with sharp coral. This spot requires specific conditions for the beast to wake up, but when it does, only the bravest and most skilled can ride it. This spot can be found in front of Puerto Viejo’s downtown, and some local insight is required to get to the lineup, as you will have to paddle around the beautiful yet sharp Caribbean reef.If you are a barrel junkie then this will be your mecca, and you can get to choose between a right or a left. Just make sure to go fully committed or else pay the price of this mythical spot.If you are planning your next surf trip to Costa Rica, then you are in for a treat. Wiping out Not only are there multiple spots with diverse types of waves, but you can also find plenty of surf shops to buy everything from a brand-new board to a wax bar. After hitting the water and ripping waves you will be able to lay back and enjoy a cold one while watching a multicolored sunset. Make sure to respect the environment, the local scene and the priority in the water, and you are in for one remarkable experience.Coming soon I will talk about two magical spots that have a lot to offer: Cóbano and the Southern Pacific, with some insight from local surfers and shapers. See you next time and till then, see you in the water.

That’s where I started surfing, and they’re the most popular among locals and visitors, but us locals still keep a few spots secret, especially those who like ripping waves in the privacy of their own backyard.As a Costa Rican who’s been ripping local waves for the past nine years, I’ve surfed them all.I think.According to my mom, I went nuts the first time I set foot in the ocean, but because we lived in San José, I couldn’t get a board and start surfing until I was 17. I didn’t know anything about the sport. I didn’t have a car or a network of fellow surfers.I bought myself a $150 LSD board with plastic fins and a Kommunity leash and pad and learned how to paddle, duck dive and float. I couldn’t get into a good pace until I got a car years later. My main spots were now just 90 minutes and $30 worth of gas away. A secret spot in the central Pacific (Manuel Martínez / The Tico Times)Then my network of local surfers started growing. My girlfriend’s best friend’s boyfriend was this Italian guy who shaped boards in Santa Teresa. He took me to his favorite spot and then pointed out the fact that I needed a board that fit my body better.I found the perfect match at a shop in Tamarindo, and I could totally feel the difference after my first session. I no longer was the slowest paddler, and I got the first taste of a right and left-hander.Now I’m 26 and have two boards, a 6’0” Denga with large Future Fiberglass Fins from a local surf shop in Santa Teresa, and a 6’2” Carton with FCS Medium size fiberglass fins from a legendary Jacó shaper. Both these boards both have a volume between 30 and 35 liters and they’re a couple of rockets. I’m hoping to get more barrel time and, with a lot of hard work and patience, land my first aerial tricks.
CANNES, France – Viewers have watched former “Smallville” and “Beauty and the Beast” star Kristin Kreuk grow up on television.The 35-year-old Vancouver-native has spent half her life in the spotlight. She was still a teenager when “Smallville” launched in 2001, making her an instant Comic-Con crush as Clark Kent’s girlfriend Lana Lang. After a dozen years as a CW ingenue, she finally felt like the grown-up on the set while making CBC’s “Burden of Truth,” which premieres Wednesday.Compounding that feeling is working opposite young actresses who were her age when she started out on “Smallville.”“To be around them, it feels like, ‘Oh God, your entire life I’ve been on a set,’” says Kreuk during a press tour in Cannes, where the series was being shopped internationally.“That’s a weird experience for me to own.”These young actresses didn’t grow up watching “Smallville,” Kreuk points out, “because they would have been three!”The new hour-long drama is about a big city lawyer who tackles a troubling case that brings her back in touch with her small-town roots. The series was shot in Selkirk, Man., about 70 kilometres outside of Winnipeg.In a season-long storyline, Kreuk’s character — fast-rising corporate lawyer Joanna Hanley — is dispatched to the prairie town of Millwood to quickly shut down a case against a giant pharmaceutical company. Young girls at the local high school have come down with a mysterious illness causing uncontrollable seizures. Hanley is there, essentially, to buy off the victims and their families.The series was created by Brad Simpson, a story editor and writer who previously worked on “Rookie Blue” and the short-lived Toronto cop drama “King.” It was developed at eOne “but it wasn’t going anywhere,” says seasoned executive producer Ilana Frank (“Saving Hope,” “Rookie Blue”).Simpson, Frank’s stepson, relinquished the producer role and Adam Pettie (“Saving Hope”) was brought in as showrunner.“I thought: this has got to be made,” says Frank. “Kristin was already attached so some of the hard work was done already.”Kreuk, also an executive producer, huddled with Simpson in the early going to define her character and continues that collaboration with Pettie.“I feel like she’s a creation of all of us,” says Kreuk, who sees the young lawyer as “a little socially awkward — like me.”Frank thinks of the series “as a cross between ‘Friday Night Lights’ and a kind of (John) Grisham thing.” The back-to-the-small-town storyline may remind some viewers of the drama “Everwood,” starring Treat Williams.“I wanted it to be about the community,” says Frank, “but I didn’t want people with straw out of their mouths. I wanted real people with real problems.”The main problem in the first season is the mysterious illness inflicting the otherwise healthy high school girls. Representing the victims is Hanley’s former high school classmate, Billy Crawford (Peter Mooney from “Rookie Blue”). Mooney, in real life, hails from “a slightly bigger small town” just south of Winnipeg.The Selkirk locals were “welcoming and wonderful,” says Mooney. “They got over having a film crew in town fairly quickly.”What viewers will slowly discover is that there was a reason the Hanleys abruptly left town when Joanna was 14; a secret that will take much of the season to become clear.“Every week,” says Kreuk, “you will get another piece of the puzzle.”— Bill Brioux is a freelance TV columnist based in Brampton, Ont. While in Cannes, Brioux was a guest of Telefilm Canada and the Canada Media Fund.Note to readers: This is a corrected story.

its new mayor now seeks to halve that amount Amsterdam whose infamous drug culture and picturesque canals drew at least 6 million foreign visitors to the city in 2016 has adopted a carrot-and-stick approach The Dutch capital has introduced fines for rowdy behavior and banned the mobile bars known as “beer bikes” while simultaneously attempting to lure visitors to less congested sites like Zandvoort a coastal town 17 miles from the city center that has been rebranded Amsterdam Beach through apps and messaging systems The city has also raised its tourist tax to 6% joining several other cities and some countries that aim to control visitor numbers with higher levies At the start of 2018 Greece imposed its first tourist tax which ranges from roughly 50 cents a night to four euros In Iceland which receives nearly seven times as many visitors as it has residents lawmakers will consider a tax this fall on tourists coming from outside of Europe Yet even in liberal Europe not every government is willing to raise taxes Authorities in the Lofoten Islands in northern Norway beseeched the government to raise levies after more than a million tourists visited in 2017 thanks in part to the movie Frozen The 25000 inhabitants found their single main road and its sparse facilities completely overwhelmed When Norway said no to higher taxes the locals were forced to take matters into their own hands “We’ve organized community volunteers to build trails and haul trash” says Flakstad Mayor Hans Fredrik Sordal “In summer we’re opening the school toilets to the public And we’re asking tourists for volunteer contributions” For locals in these places anger at the ever-expanding rates of tourism can be placated by the money there is to be made out of catering to them The advent of Airbnb has created a revenue stream for city-center residents with spare bedrooms and second properties The company sees itself as an answer to tourism overcrowding rather than a net contributor “We are convinced our community can be a solution to mass tourism” wrote company founder Nathan Blecharczyk in a May report “and that it enables sustainable growth that benefits everyone” Yet some people benefit more than others Canny investors buy up residential properties in desirable locations and convert them into tourist apartments provoking housing shortages and pushing up prices Again some cities have taken action Copenhagen for example has limited the number of days per year that owners can rent out their residences Barcelona has targeted Airbnb itself forcing it to share data about owners and remove listings for unlicensed apartments It has also launched a website where visitors can check if a potential apartment is legally registered But speculators are hard to deter especially as Airbnb doesn’t require owners to reside in housing that is rented through the site Balancing the needs of locals with the demands of tourists is a challenge across Europe but perhaps nowhere more so than in Venice where more than 20 million tourists crowd the piazzas and canals every year When the city’s mayor attempted to install checkpoints to potentially shut main thoroughfares to tourists the initiative was greeted by protests from locals who saw the surprise measure as an attempt to close the city “We tried to do something for the city for the residents” laments Paola Mar Venice’s deputy mayor for tourism “This measure was for them for their safety But in Italy you’re only good if you do nothing” Venice has not done nothing The local government has restricted the construction of new hotels and takeout restaurants and created a fast lane for residents on public transport It has a plan in place to ease congestion by diverting foot and boat traffic on exceptionally crowded days this summer and now employs 22 stewards in vests that read #EnjoyRespectVenezia to prevent tourists sitting on monuments jumping in the canal or otherwise misbehaving Barcelona now limits tour-group access to the Boquería market Paolo Verzone—Agence Vu for TIME But imposing too many restrictions risks alienating the residents who depend on access to tourist dollars;
