City of Ottawa declares state of emergency due to threat of flooding

first_imgOttawa Mayor Jim Watson has declared a state of emergency over flooding along the Ottawa River and other waterways.In the declaration, the mayor’s office says the water levels pose “an ongoing threat” to property, health and safety of nearby residents.Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement forecasting up to 35 millimetres of rain in the capital region by Saturday.The mayor’s office says the combination of already high water levels and further rainfall give rise to a situation that “constitutes a danger of major proportions that could result in serious harm.”Watson says about 400 soldiers with the Canadian Armed Forces are expected to assist with flooding efforts in the city.He says the declaration will help city crews, volunteers and residents in affected areas, which are mainly in outlying suburbs.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Unifor calls for strong local multiethnic TV news

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement Login/Register With: The third language programming licence comes with a rare, mandatory 12 cent monthly fee paid by all subscribers. The fee is likely to rise to meet the CRTC’s expectations of reaching more third language communities including Mandarin, Cantonese, Punjabi, Spanish, Arabic, Tagalog and Italian. Rogers is just one of eight applicants vying for the multi-ethnic television news service.“Local news is essential to local democracy and that’s what matters to the nearly four million Canadians who potentially will be watching these newscasts,” said Moore.Unifor is calling on the CRTC to impose a fair wage policy as a condition of licence. The current collective agreements between Unifor and the Rogers-owned OMNI stations in Vancouver and Toronto contain fair pay and working conditions. Unifor is also asking the CRTC to bar the winning applicant from contracting out to cheaper labour providers, as Rogers has done with Fairchild Media and its current Chinese language newscasts, creating an editorial monopoly in Chinese language news in Canada.“If Rogers doesn’t retain the licence, the new broadcaster can’t be allowed to receive public money with a blank cheque to exploit media workers,” said Howard Law, Unifor’s Media Director.The CRTC deadline for public interventions is May 17 and members of the public are encouraged to submit their views through the CRTC website.Unifor is Canada’s largest union in the private sector, representing 315,000 workers in every major area of the economy. The union advocates for all working people and their rights, fights for equality and social justice in Canada and abroad, and strives to create progressive change for a better future. TORONTO, May 2, 2018 – The union representing journalists and media workers at Rogers OMNI TV stations in Vancouver and Toronto is demanding the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) impose stringent conditions on any new multi-language news licencee.“This special licencee must deliver great local news, and lots of it,” said Jake Moore, President, Unifor Local 79M and chair of Unifor’s Media Council.  “The next licence holder must earn its monthly cable fees.”center_img Facebook Advertisement Advertisement Twitterlast_img read more

Burnaby to take Trans Mountain pipeline fight to Supreme Court

first_imgBURNABY, B.C. – The City of Burnaby is turning to Canada’s highest court in the dispute over construction of Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline.Mayor Derek Corrigan says the city intends to ask the Supreme Court of Canada to consider a lower court decision that denied Burnaby leave to appeal a ruling by the National Energy Board.That ruling allowed Kinder Morgan to bypass local bylaws during construction of the pipeline expansion, which will triple the amount of diluted bitumen and other oil products moving between the Edmonton-area and port facilities in Burnaby.Corrigan says the city has asked its legal counsel to file the appeal application within 60 days.He says in a news release that the Federal Court of Appeal did not give consideration to arguments made by Burnaby and the provincial government.The Federal Court of Appeal dismissed Burnaby’s application without reasons, but Corrigan says the judges should have explained why the provincial government was not being allowed to protectB.C.’s environmental interests.last_img read more

La grippe décroit peu à peu dans lHexagone

first_imgLa grippe décroit peu à peu dans l’HexagoneSelon le réseau de surveillance des GROG, l’épidémie de grippe qui a déjà touché plus de 5 millions de personnes s’affaiblit de plus en plus en France. 400.000 cas ont tout de même été recensés la semaine dernière.Depuis le début de l’année, plus de 5 millions de personnes ont déjà consulté pour une grippe, dont 400.000 la semaine dernière. C’est ce que révèle la dernière estimation diffusée mercredi par le réseau de surveillance des Groupes régionaux d’observation de la grippe (GROG). D’après les chiffres communiqués, l’épidémie serait toutefois en pleine décroissance en métropole. Ce qui ne l’empêche pas de rester très soutenue dans huit départements : Aquitaine, Basse-Normandie, Bourgogne, Bretagne, Centre, Champagne-Ardenne, Midi-Pyrénées et Rhône-Alpes.À lire aussiParkinson : les scientifiques alertent sur une « pandémie »Selon le réseau Sentinelles-Inserm, l’âge médian des cas rapportés la semaine dernière était de 29 ans mais ces experts ne prennent en compte que les syndromes grippaux avec fièvre au-dessus de 39 degrés d’apparition brutale, avec douleurs musculaires et signes respiratoires. Ainsi, selon ces critères, le réseau Sentinelles estime à 1.056.500 le nombre des consultations pour grippe en sept semaines d’épidémie. En outre, il relève que trois régions étaient plus touchées que les autres la semaine dernière : Auvergne (511 cas pour 100.000 habitants), Bretagne (342) et Poitou-Charentes (296).D’après le réseau des GROG, le virus grippal A(H3N2) reste très présent tandis que le virus B circule discrètement. A côté de cette épidémie, une autre maladie a récemment fait parler d’elle dans les cabinets : la varicelle. La semaine dernière, elle a montré une forte activité en Picardie (45 cas pour 100.000 habitants), et modérée en Languedoc-Roussillon (36), Aquitaine (35), Poitou-Charentes (32) et Rhône-Alpes (26), indique le réseau Sentinelles-Inserm.

Heynckes fuming over gifted goals

first_imgA fuming Jupp Heynckes criticised his players for “gifting” two goals to Real Madrid on Wednesday night while failing to capitalise on their own chancesAiming to make their first appearance in the final of the Champions League since 2013, Bayern Munich hosted the title-holders for the first leg of their semi-final at the Allianz Arena.But the Bundesliga champions missed a host of chances to score and paid the price for their mistakes with Marcelo and Marco Asensio scoring either side of half-time.“We went ahead, but there was a turning point with their first goal, which was a gift,” said Heynckes, according to Marca.“And their second was a gift too.“We’ve rarely had so many chances to score and haven’t done so, but we didn’t know how to take advantage of our opportunities.“Madrid were more effective.”Bayern had more bad news at the end of the game with Arjen Robben and Jerome Boateng getting injured before the break and Javi Martinez being forced off later with a head injury.“I can’t say if today’s injuries are serious,” the coach continued.“Javi Martinez was hit on the temple, but that was anecdotal after Robben and Boateng’s injuries.rb leipzig, bayern munichReport: Bayern are held by Leipzig George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Bayern Munich was held to another draw, this time by RB Leipzig.Bayern Munich finds themselves in the unfamiliar position of sitting third in the…“We have to wait until Thursday for the results, but it would be two big casualties to lose.“Bayern will do everything we can to correct the result of the first leg.“Madrid has a great advantage after the victory, but we lost undeservedly.”But the outgoing Bayern coach did hold praise for Franck Ribery, who was a constant threat against Real throughout the whole match.“Ribery is 35 years old, yes, but he has played excellently,” he added.“It must be said that in the first half he had a great chance, and if we went ahead we would have won the game, no doubt.“He is a great professional and he has great self-motivation.“We have known each other since 2012 and it’s very important for him to feel the confidence of the coach.“The results of the quarter and semifinals are atypical, Wednesday’s match has shown that Madrid is vulnerable, so we can be optimistic.”last_img read more

New Education Law to Help School Officials Track Military Students

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR For the first time, public school officials will be required to track the progress of military kids as a group, helping defense leaders, educators and policymakers better understand how the children of service members are performing and tailor support for them.The provision requiring officials to include a military student identifier in school records was part of the new K-12 education law that President Obama signed Thursday ending heavy federal involvement in public schools and shifting much of that authority back to states and local school districts.Without the military student identifier, “educators and policy leaders have no way of knowing whether these students are faring well, keeping pace or falling behind,” Mary Keller, president and CEO of the Military Child Education Coalition, said in a written statement.“The identifier will provide data to inform both educators and policymakers, enabling them to adjust programs, direct resources and adopt strategies that support these students and their military families,” Keller said.The Military Child Education Coalition has long advocated for a military student identifier, reported Military Times. There are more than 1 million military children in pre-kindergarten through grade 12, with the vast majority in public schools.The Every Student Succeeds Act also includes language speeding up the payment of federal Impact Aid to school districts that serve large numbers of military students. The Education Department will be required to submit payments within one year after the end of the fiscal year for which payments were allocated by Congress, according to the story.Another provision would help school districts that serve installations gaining new missions and experience an increase in the number of military children from the end of one school year to the beginning of the next school year. In that case, the school system could be paid the extra amount during that school year.“Otherwise, payments are always based on the count taken the previous fall,” said Bryan Jernigan, spokesman for the National Association of Federally Impacted Schools. “This would help a growing district due to [BRAC] or some other reason that would send troops to an installation,” he said.last_img read more

Hyundai invests 90 million in Rimac will partner on performance EVs

But now, thanks to an investment from two major automakers, that name should be popping up more often.Hyundai Motor Group announced on Tuesday that it has invested 80 million euro (about $90 million) in Rimac Automobili, a Croatian startup working on electric vehicles. 64 million euro (about $72 million) will come from Hyundai, while the remainder will be sourced from Kia’s coffers.The partnership will bear two pieces of serious performance fruit. The first is, as the press release refers to it, “an electric version of Hyundai Motor’s N brand midship sports concept car.” This brevity-averse phrase likely refers to an EV variant of the RM16 N Veloster concept, a midengine performance car that’s been spied on normal roads in camouflage. If you thought the Veloster N was the end-all, be-all of Hyundai’s N performance division, nope. In addition to the midengine EV, the two automakers will also build a “high-performance fuel cell electric vehicle,” which sounds mighty interesting. Most fuel cell vehicles we’ve seen thus far have been family-friendly rides, like the Hyundai Nexo and Toyota Mirai. Pininfarina had a hydrogen supercar concept in 2016, but it appears that it chose to stay in 2016.Rimac landed on the scene in 2011 with its 1,224-horsepower Concept_One. The company made its next appearance at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show when it unveiled the C Two, an electric hypercar packing 1,914 hp and a top speed of 258 miles per hour. Hyundai isn’t the only automaker picking up what Rimac’s putting down, either; last June, Porsche announced it would take a 10% stake in the Croatian startup.last_img read more

Aerial Mosquito Spray Operation Scheduled In Houston Area In Wake of Flooding

first_imgThe rain brought in by Hurricane Harvey has created vast areas in Harris County where mosquitoes can lay their eggs.To address increasing numbers of mosquitoes, the U.S. Air Force Reserve’s 910th Airlift Wing flying modified C-130 cargo planes staged out of Kelly Air Force Base in San Antonio will be conducting an aerial spray operation beginning Thursday evening,September 14. The plan is to spray approximately 600,000 acres by air, weather permitting.(Click here to see map for the proposed spray areas.) According to Dr. Umair A. Shah, executive director of Harris County Public Health (HCPH), “The goal is to reduce the effects mosquitoes are having on recovery efforts and the possibility of a future increase in mosquito-borne disease.” The insecticide, Dibrom (EPA-approved), is routinely used for aerial spray and is considered safe for the environment.

DC Safe Surrender Program Provides a Second Chance

first_imgDistrict residents with outstanding warrants now have an opportunity to surrender to resolve their problem.The DC Safe Surrender program encourages all who are wanted for non-violent felonies or misdemeanors in the city to confront their indiscretions on one of three Saturdays in September at the D.C. Superior Court, 500 Indiana Avenue NW. The program has held similar events in 2007 and 2011.Chief Judge Lee Satterfield giving opening remarks at news conference. (Photo by D.C. Courts Media and Public Relations Department)“DC Safe Surrender is an initiative focused on increasing public safety, and we hope to build on the success of the 2007 and 2011 programs,” said Chief Judge Lee Satterfield. “By taking responsibility for their actions, participants of Safe Surrender will demonstrate they are taking the appropriate steps towards becoming responsible members of the community. They will end the risk of being arrested at a traffic stop or on the job or in front of colleagues or family members.”According to Satterfield, Safe Surrender helps the city by reducing outstanding bench and parole warrants, and treating those who surrender with dignity and professionalism. “The Safe Surrender is an extremely important initiative that is designed to help individuals who may have outstanding criminal justice matters to take care of those matters so that they won’t further complicate their daily lives,” said Tamar Meekins, deputy D.C. attorney general.Satterfield; Meekins; U.S. Attorney Channing Phillips; Avis Buchanan, director of D.C. Public Defender Service; Michael Hughes, U.S. Marshal; Metropolitan Police Department Assistant Chief Kimberly Missouri; Nancy Ware, director of Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency; Cliff Keenan, Pretrial Services director; Councilmember Kenyan R. McDuffie (D-Ward 5); and Willie Jones, a 2007 Safe Surrender participant, were at the Sept. 7 press conference to announce the initiative for 2016.Satterfield giving kudos to Willie Jones, 2007 Safe Surrender participant. (Photo by D.C. Courts Media and Public Relations Department)“In 2007 I had a drug case and I failed to go back to court which was a bench warrant,” Jones told the AFRO.  “I stayed on the run for a while and my brother called me about the program.” Jones was facing a distribution of heroin charge.The Safe Surrender program Jones joined in 2007 was at the Bible Way Baptist Church in Northwest D.C. He spent five hours there in which he spoke to an attorney and judge. After he answered questions, the judge set another court date for him. Jones received two years’ probation. “Ninety-eight percent of the people who come in go home the same day,” said Jones. “You get the warrant taken care of and you’re a free man.”Non-violent offenses and misdemeanors of the program may include parole and drug violations, people not payingtickets, or not appearing in court. According to Phillips, there are more than 12,000 bench warrants out that are more than 10 years old.U.S. Marshal Michael Hughes speaks to media at conference. (Photo by D.C. Courts Media and Public Relations Department)Persons not eligible to participate in Safe Surrender include those having warrants for a violent felony offense, juvenile matter, child neglect, or child support. People who are wanted on a warrant from Maryland, Virginia, other state jurisdictions, or from a court other than the D.C. Superior Court are not eligible.The Safe Surrender program is scheduled for Sept. 17 and 24 between the hours of 9 a.m.and 4 p.m.“I will be there for all the Saturdays to support those like I did in 2007 and 2011,” Jones said. “Safe Surrender is a great program, it’s a first step for a new beginning, the first step for a second chance . . . I ain’t where I want to be, but I sure ain’t where I used to be.”last_img read more

The Best and Most Loved Anime Series of All Time

first_img There isn’t one word to describe anime. It’s action-packed, tear-jerking, and gritty, depending on what type of anime series you’re streaming. Even though there are new anime series debuting left and right, there are always the ones we watch over and over again. From Cowboy Bebop to Yuri on Ice, here are the best and most loved anime series of all time.Cowboy BebopThere are many great anime but there are few that can be called truly transcendent. Cowboy Bebop is one of those few. The series defies convention and genre, melding elements of sci-fi, westerns, jazz, and the blues to form a unique and gutting exploration of loneliness. That’s not to say the series is a nonstop tearjerker. The show is also some of the most fun you can have with anime, featuring stunning animation and character design, killer gunfights, and thrilling space races. Anime is better for Cowboy Bebop having happened.Trigun A bit more of a straight sci-fi western, Trigun is a thrilling old-school Clint Eastwood western told through a unique lens. It centers on legendary outlaw Vash the Stampede, a seeming buffoon with a mysterious past. Filled with stunning design and thrilling action sequences, it’s a hallmark of the genre and definitely not to be missed.Dragon Ball ZPerhaps the most iconic anime of all time, Dragon Ball Z pioneered an often imitated but never duplicated format: good guys fight a villain for 15 to 20 episodes, the villain evolves into a new and more powerful form, repeat twice, and move on. It’s a shockingly simple premise, but it works for the greatest action anime of all time. No entry in the genre has given us so many iconic moments and characters, from Goku and Piccolo to, “IT’S OVER 9000!” Anime wouldn’t be what it is today without Dragon Ball Z.Sailor MoonAnime has always bridged the borders of gender, but there’s something to be said for Sailor Moon being the first anime to hit American screens that took the structure of an action anime like Dragon Ball Z and made it unapologetically feminine. The result is an iconic franchise that has drawn in millions of women over the last few decades to anime in a way that a show like Dragon Ball Z could never do. Featuring a memorable cast of characters, iconic costume designs, and a slew of very solid movies, Sailor Moon is easily one of the most memorable and important anime of all time.Fullmetal AlchemistYou can’t manufacture heart. Many have tried and many have failed. Fullmetal Alchemist is pure heart from beginning to end. It’s a testament to the emotional core of the show that the memorable relationship between Edward Elric and Alphonse Elric is what stands out over its admittedly excellent premise, centered on the mystical art of alchemy. The series finale is among the most stunning moments in the entirety of the medium.One Punch ManInitially reading as a parody of western superhero comics, One Punch Man proves itself far more than a one-note riff. It follows the hilariously memorable Saitama whose superhuman abilities allow him to destroy his enemy using only one punch. The result? He’s bored. Insanely bored, all of the time. No villain or monster can truly challenge him and the stories that spring from this malaise are weird and wonderful as can be. It’s insanely funny, insanely fun, and probably the single most meme-able anime of all time.Death NoteThe structure of anime is kind of a nebulous thing to define. Most don’t tend to function the same way as, say, Breaking Bad or Game of Thrones from a narrative perspective – and that’s not a bad thing, mind you. Death Note is the exception to that rule, though. It’s a stunningly-crafted supernatural crime narrative that plays out far more like a long-form season of True Detective than another anime. The cat-and-mouse game between Light Yagami and the enigmatic detective L is among the most compelling rivalries and relationships in the entirety of the medium and makes for legitimately thrilling television. Given its structure, it’s perhaps the most bingeable anime out there.Lupin the 3rd The character of Lupin the 3rd has spanned a number of different series under different showrunners, all of which have their merits and cons. We’re grouping them all under one banner in this case though, as every incarnation has contributed to the character of master criminal Lupin the 3rd becoming one of the most iconic anime creations of all time. Outside of the aforementioned Dragon Ball Z and Sailor Moon, it’s hard to think of many anime with such a note-for-note perfect cast, from Lupin himself to allies Daisuke Jigen and Fujiko Mine. The character has remained relevant for several decades now and we don’t see that changing any time soon.Yuri on Ice How good, how unabashedly pure, is Yuri on Ice? The sports romance anime took the world by storm in 2016, spreading like wildfire as it aired. From the will-they-won’t-they chemistry between Victor Nikiforov and Yuri Plisetsky to the absolutely stunning ice skating choreography, it’s a tour-de-force of modern anime and worthy of every bit of acclaim it’s received. With a second season on the way, there’s no telling how much more popular this one will become in the future.Mobile Suit Gundam Wing  Everybody loves giant robots. That’s just how it is. And there’s probably no single property as responsible for instilling that love in American audiences quite like the Gundam series. Spanning dozens of series, movies, and stories, there are a myriad of excellent selections to choose from (Thunderbolt is particularly spectacular) but in this instance we’ve got to give it to the original Mobile Suit Gundam Wing. It’s this show that is responsible for starting the craze to begin with and it holds up remarkably well. Not only does it feature stellar robot fights (always a good thing), but also dense anti-war themes that carry throughout the franchise. Giant robots are always great but nobody has ever done it quite so well as Gundam.More Anime on Geek.comBest Horror Anime Available for StreamingThe Best Sports AnimeThe Best Anime on Hulu ‘Cannon Busters’ Is The Black Anime We’ve Been Waiting…Casio G-SHOCK Unveils ‘Akira’-Inspired ‘Neo Tokyo̵… Stay on targetlast_img read more

Star Wars Battlefronts Death Star expansion finally takes you to space

first_img <><> Star Wars Battlefront’s Death Star expansion hits in September, although Season Pass holders will get access to it two weeks early. Stay on target, folks. You might have been holding off on buying DLC for Star Wars Battlefront, but that’s likely to end now. At Gamescom, EA has detailed what the upcoming Death Star DLC will include, and it’s going to send fans accelerating to attack speed.The biggest and most welcome thing this brings is that Battlefront will finally take place in space! It’s something that fans have been sorely missing ever since Battlefront was brought back, a strange omission for the franchise, which you may or may not know is actually mostly set in space.But if you’re going to wait to go to space, it might as well be to destroy the Death Star. When the DLC was first announced most people assumed you would just be fighting inside it, but nope, your spaceships are finally free from the land. The Death Star level itself is actually part of a brand-new mode called Battle Station. This features three different phases, each with its own specific objective.In Phase 1 the Rebels will fly X-Wings and A-Wings against TIE fighters and TIE intercepters in a space battle. The Rebels will attempt to destroy enough of them to allow their Y-Wing fighters in to weaken the Star Destroyer’s defenses. Then you have to bring that big sucker down. Thankfully Empire players will have AI ships helping to defend it- they need to hold out for ten minutes in order to stop the rebellion.Phase 2 sees players fighting inside the station as expected. Rebels have to extract a droid from within, and here you will likely be able to play as Chewbacca for the first time. Empire players have their own new playable hero as well: the Trandoshan bounty hunter Bossk.Phase 3 is the big one. This is where everyone heads back into space and the Rebels try to fulfill their ultimate destiny by blowing up the Death Star. Besides the dozens of ships that will get destroyed in the process, Luke Skywalker can appear in his Red-5 X-Wing, and Darth Vader can show up in his custom TIE Advanced. Just hope that someone’s playing as Han if that happens…To keep players even more interested, the expansion will feature new Star Cards and Blasters.last_img read more

It also shows MLS content, having taken over in Canada what had been the MLS Live streaming service.The EPL acquisition was first reported in December but was not announced until now.“Speaking as a Brit abroad, I’m continually impressed by the popularity of the EPL in the international markets we go into,” said Joe Markowski, executive vice-president of DAZN North America.“We see soccer as a huge growth opportunity in the Canadian market alongside our NFL content, which underpinned our launch (in the summer of 2017),” he added. “And this is the next step in the journey for us.”DAZN says it will show all 380 matches during the EPL season as well as highlights, preview and weekly magazine programs. Coverage will begin in August.The subscription price will remain at $20 a month or $150 a year, Markowski said.DAZN, a live and on-demand streaming service, is backed by American-British industrialist Len Blavatnik’s Access Industries.The service is currently available in eight countries — Canada, Austria, Germany, Japan, Switzerland, the U.S., Italy and Spain — with Brazil in the on-deck circle.“We’re terrifically excited about Canada,” Markowski said. “We wouldn’t be investing in the content we are investing in if we weren’t.”Canadian consumers have embraced new media offerings, he added.While the streaming service has a wide soccer menu, it has no immediate plans to join forces with the Canadian Premier League.Markowski wished the new league well but said “right now it’s not our focus.” DAZN signs three-year deal for English Premier League rights in Canada by Neil Davidson, The Canadian Press Posted Apr 3, 2019 7:05 am PDT Follow @NeilMDavidson on TwitterNeil Davidson, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

2017 CransMontana – the longest night

first_imgFor Cyprus Mail editor Jean Christou, who has been covering the Cyprus problem for decades, the talks at Crans-Montana were depressingly predictable For a journalist, one of the more interesting aspects of covering the Cyprus problem for 25 years – yeah, yeah no one in their right mind is supposed to find the Cyprob interesting – is witnessing landmark dates whether it be the Burgenstock negotiations and the referendums in 2004, the opening of the crossings in 2003 or the talks in Crans-Montana on July 6 and 7.You know deep down after all that time doing the job that nothing will come of any of it but at the same time you can’t help thinking “maybe this time” and next thing you know, it’s morning and you’ve stayed up all night “just in case” there’s a breakthrough. You really should know better but hey, if you’re not curious, you should look for another career right?Day 9 of the Crans-Montana talks began with the return of United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in a bid to rejuvenate the negotiations. Cue ubiquitous photo op with the leaders, the foreign ministers of Turkey and Greece, the EU’s Federica Mogherini and Britain’s Sir Alan Duncan.Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci told reporters: “Today is not a day to engage in the blame-game. It is the day to help each other and see if we can reach an agreement. We don’t know whether we will have the same opportunity tomorrow.” Twenty-four hours later he had completely changed his tune.You knew things were not going well when lunch was pushed back and Guterres had to meet separately with the leaders and the different factions. This went on all afternoon. British Permanent Representative to the United Nations Matthew Rycroft said that Guterres “is straining every muscle to get Cyprus talks over the lines”. He would not have been the first.During its main evening bulletin that night, Cybc, citing Turkish sources, reported that the UN had a draft framework ready for a political agreement that could even be announced that very evening. This was followed by news that the main evening session with all parties had been cancelled so that was another bad omen, and the working dinner was put off until 10pm Cyprus time. Akinci remarked that it had been a long day “and now begins the long night”. Perhaps he did not realise at the time how long it would actually get for all of us. President Nicos Anastasiades, not exactly known for these following two traits, called for “calm and patience”.When live reports from the Swiss resort began to look bleaker and bleaker as the evening wore on, deputy government spokesman Victoras Papadopoulos thought he was being clever by tweeting out to us not to be taken in by fake news, the new go-to for politicians, themselves the greatest purveyors of fake news.But even by midnight, the talks could still have gone either way as all reports suggested there was a hair’s breadth between what was left to agree, or else total collapse.What was an editor to do faced with having to put the paper to bed or not have it printed on time? It had gone all quiet in terms of information coming from Crans-Montana though we found out later the dinner itself had been anything but. By 2am Cyprus time, the dinner stopped for a break, another bad sign so we packed it in for the print edition.But the night was far from over.By 2.50am, Kathimerini reported that there had been no substantial progress while ten minutes later Politis reported that the only remaining issues on the table were the rotating presidency, the withdrawal of troops and the monitoring of the implementation of a solution.Fifteen minutes later, reports started coming in from multiple media outlets that the dinner was over. By 3.20am, the UN announced that Guterres would speak to the press, which he did at 3.45am saying he was “deeply sorry” that the conference closed without an agreement. Guterres’ news conference lasted only 3.5 minutes. He said he could not isolate a particular issue as the death knell for the talks, but was firm that the conference was over and he wished “the best for all the Cypriots north and south”. Sounded ominous. No other participant attended the news conference.Then the real fun began, statements, rumours, innuendo and the ubiquitous blame game that’s still going on as the year ends. Both sides accused the other of being responsible for the gigantic failure of the talks that had seemed to swing between ‘almost there’ to ‘never there’ from day to day.UN Special Adviser Espen Barth Eide tweeted on his way out of Crans-Montana on Friday July 7: “Close, but not close enough: A sombre mood as delegations leave #CransMontana, after 10 days, without agreement”.Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu who tweeted within minutes of the collapse said “unfortunately” the Greek Cypriots’ ‘zero guarantees, zero army’ red line could not be overcome. He even suggested that negotiating within UN parameters might no longer be the answer for Cyprus. Greek Foreign Minister Nicos Kotzias posted on Twitter that “Turkey’s intervention rights on the island could not be made acceptable.”And while President Nicos Anastasiades made no statements at all on the Friday, Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci held a news conference during which he repeated several times that the problem was the insistence on zero troops and zero guarantees by the Greek Cypriots. “The Conference started with it and finished with it,” he said. He also made some comment to the effect that the Greek Cypriots were packing their suitcases the entire time they were there.The perspective from diplomatic circles surrounding the talks was different. One diplomat in Crans-Montana lamented that the sides had come “so, so close” to succeeding. Indications which had emerged that Turkey was considering relinquishing intervention rights vanished when the Greek side asked for that commitment in writing.Initially it appeared that it was down to Anastasiades’ stance, as reported by the Cyprus Mail at the time, for which the paper came under heavy fire. Yet, dribs and drabs in the following weeks confirmed those early reports of what had transpired at the ‘Last Supper’. A UN source said: the dinner was a disaster and that Anastasiades “was behaving really badly”.Each side blamed the other for weeks over a long, hot summer, waiting for Guterres to put the other straight in his eventual report, which came on September 30.The carefully-worded verdict: a historic opportunity was missed in Crans-Montana, no blame was assigned – yet again – but they all meant well. That’s OK then. Really? So, the Swiss negotiations like all those before them have been consigned to the dustbin of Cyprob history, another special envoy has gone to the diplomat’s Cyprob graveyard, and we await the outcome of the presidential elections before knowing what comes next. And then the hype begins all over again.
