Mr. Seaga was one of the founding fathers who framed the Jamaican Constitution in 1961. Members of the Senate, today (May 31), observed a minute of silence for the former Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Edward Seaga. Members of the Senate, today (May 31), observed a minute of silence for the former Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Edward Seaga.Mr. Seaga, who was Jamaica’s fifth Prime Minister, died in a hospital in the United States on May 28, where he had been receiving treatment. He was 89 years old.Senate President, Thomas Tavares-Finson, informed that a joint meeting of the Houses of Parliament will be held in tribute to Mr. Seaga.“In due course, we will be notified of those arrangements,” he said, noting that at that time, members will be able to place on record their substantive tributes.Acting Leader of Government Business, Senator Kavan Gayle, hailed Mr. Seaga as one of the builders of modern-day Jamaica.“We are deeply saddened by his passing. We must commend him for the tremendous work that he has done for this nation,” he said, noting that Mr. Seaga devoted his life to serving his country.“There are communities that would be in mourning now. His own West Kingston constituency that he developed, the musical fraternity to which he played a tremendous role, the Parliament, and in the latter part of his life, the tremendous contribution he made to the football federation,” he said.He extended deepest sympathies to Mr. Seaga’s family in their moment of bereavement.For her part, Leader of Opposition Business, Donna Scott-Mottley said Mr. Seaga is part of the political, social and economic fabric of the country.“He is woven into the history. He is the last serving member of the committee that charted the course of Jamaica’s Independence. Although he was not born here in Jamaica, there is no one that can challenge the fact that you could not have found somebody more Jamaican. He impacted our music and impacted our culture, and history will show that he was into institutional building,” she said.She said the relationship between Mr. Seaga and the people of Tivoli “was truly a paternalistic one, and I know that they are mourning, intensely, the loss of their father”.Mr. Seaga was one of the founding fathers who framed the Jamaican Constitution in 1961.He initiated a rewrite of the Human Rights section of the Constitution to provide for a Charter of Fundamental Rights and Freedoms, and created the office of public defender.The former Prime Minister was also a member of the first Parliament of independent Jamaica.When Mr. Seaga retired from representational politics, he accepted a post as Senior Research Fellow at the University of the West Indies (UWI) Mona campus, and was later named Chancellor at the University of Technology (UTech) in 2010.He served as President of the Tivoli Gardens Football Club, and chaired the Premier League Clubs Association.During the sitting, the Senate also recognised other outstanding Jamaicans who passed during the week.They include former Chief Photographer at the Jamaica Information Service (JIS), Errol Harvey; political commentator and academic administrator, Martin Henry; Roman Catholic priest, Monsignor Stanley Shearer who is the brother of former Prime Minister Hugh Shearer; and former President of the Methodist Church in Jamaica, Reverend C. Evans Bailey. He served as President of the Tivoli Gardens Football Club, and chaired the Premier League Clubs Association. Story Highlights

For two years, PETA Germany, with journalist Manfred Karremann, investigated the billion-dollar leather industry in Bangladesh.Now, a new PETA video video narrated by singer Leona Lewis exposes, as she says, “who is paying the highest price for leather”: child labourers and the animals who are skinned alive for shoes, belts, jackets, handbags and other products that are exported around the world.As Lewis reveals, an estimated 2 million cows are transported on severely crowded trucks thousands of miles from India – where it’s illegal in most states to slaughter them – to Bangladesh every year. Many arrive with broken tails and open wounds and are so weak and malnourished that they cannot even stand. In abattoirs, or illegally on the streets, their throats are cut with a knife, and some still struggle to escape as their skin is peeled off.Tanneries use toxic chemicals to prevent animals’ skin from decaying. Unprotected workers, including children, stand barefoot as they soak hides in carcinogenic chemicals, cut the skins with knives, and operate dangerous machinery – some losing fingers in the process. The toxic waste is then dumped into the river, which has become a bubbling swamp. Most workers have chronic respiratory problems because of the chemical vapours and lack of ventilation. An estimated 90 per cent of tannery workers die before reaching the age of 50.“The production of leather hurts animals, workers and the environment”, Lewis says in the video. “Please consider the impact that your purchases have, and buy only cruelty-free synthetic, natural fibre and other vegan clothing and accessories.”Lewis is part of a long list of celebrities – including Joaquin Phoenix, P!nk, Natalie Imbruglia, Joss Stone and Charlize Theron – who have teamed up with PETA, whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to wear”.

TORONTO – Telus Corp. raised its dividend amid a 10 per cent increase in its third quarter profit and a surge in wireless subscribers.The Vancouver-based telecommunications brand said after making $447 million or 74 cents a share — up from $406 million or 68 cents a share a year ago — for the period ended Sept. 30, it will now make a quarterly payment to shareholders of 54.5 cents per share, an increase from 52.5 cents.Chief financial officer Doug French told The Canadian Press on Thursday that he considered the quarter “strong” because of the company’s wireless and wireline growth, which has come as Telus has been expanding its fibre network to western Canada.Telus saw its total customer growth rise to 187,000 and sales from its wireless unit increase by 2.2 per cent, reaching $1.5 billion.The quarter also brought a 31 per cent spike in new wireless, internet and television customers, which totalled 199,000 — 145,000 net new wireless customers, 36,000 high-speed internet subscribers and 18,000 television customers.“We have continued to see momentum in both wireline and wireless,” French said. “We have had a very, very consistent strategy…We continue to see good churn and good customer service, which helps on the front of net loading.”On top of wireless and wireline offerings, the company has been pouring resources into creating its 5G network and building small cell technology, which is needed to sustain the network.French said 5G likely won’t be a fully-fledged service offering until closer to 2020, but investing early will mean Telus will be able to transition more quickly to the 5G spectrum, when it is available.Telus is anticipating 5G will be a hit with consumers because the company is seeing demand for speed and capacity.“We are seeing data continue to grow and the demand for data continue to grow…We expect that to continue,” he said. “What 5G brings to the table is definitely more speed and less latency, so things will happen significantly faster.”French and other executives on the Telus earnings call noted that the company’s quarter also brought a spike in operating revenue, which totalled $3.77 billion and was up from $3.40 billion in the third quarter of 2017.Thomson Reuters Eikon showed that the company’s increase in profit beat analysts’ expectations, which predicted the company would report earning 70 cents per share instead of the 74 cents per share it revealed.The company also announced Thursday that Denise Pickett, American Express’s chief risk officer and president of global risk, banking and compliance, had joined Telus’s board.Companies in this story: (TSX:T)
TORONTO — The Bank of Nova Scotia reported an increase in fourth-quarter net income compared with a year ago, but fell short of analyst expectations.Scotiabank earned $2.27 billion or $1.71 per diluted share for the three months ended Oct. 31, up from $2.07 billion or $1.64 per diluted share in net income during the same time last year.The result amounted to adjusted diluted earnings per share of $1.77 compared with $1.65 a year ago.Analysts on average had expected adjusted diluted earnings per share of $1.79 during the bank’s fourth quarter, according to Thomson Reuters Eikon.The Toronto-based bank’s results were fuelled by its international banking division which saw quarterly net income rise more than 21 per cent to $804 million.For its full 2018 financial year, Scotiabank says it earned $8.72 billion or $6.82 per diluted share, compared with a profit of $8.24 billion or $6.49 per diluted share in 2017.

OSU co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Luke Fickell walks out of the Buckeyes’ locker room before a game against Maryland on Nov. 12. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorWhen Urban Meyer was hired as Ohio State’s head coach at the end of the 2011 season, many saw the possibility for a dynasty. Meyer’s MO had been his ability to implement a high-octane, prolific offense to whichever program he was coaching. He is one of a few coaches that reshaped the offensive landscape of college football, primarily switching to a spread from a pro-style offense. Since the OSU football program’s earliest days, the Buckeyes have been viewed as a team that excels on the defensive end. Since 2002, when Luke Fickell joined the OSU staff, the characterization of a tough, blue-collar defense stood out in the program’s seven Big Ten championships, four national championship berths and two national titles. The offensive firepower of an Urban Meyer offense combined with the traditionally stout Buckeyes’ defense was a formula many thought would put OSU in the running for a national championship every season. But Meyer came close to making his own recipe.During Meyer’s first two years at the helm for OSU, the Buckeye defense wasn’t the same. After 24 consecutive victories, OSU dropped the Big Ten Championship game to Michigan State and the 2014 Discover Orange Bowl to Clemson. OSU allowed an average of 377 passing yards over the last three games. The Scarlet and Gray ranked 118th out of 125 teams in passing defense.“I did not want to keep (Luke Fickell) when I got here,” Meyer said. “We weren’t very good on defense for a couple years and that stressed things out just a touch around here.”Fickell served as interim head coach before Meyer arrived in Columbus in 2011, going 6-7. Fickell was retained by Meyer as co-defensive coordinator, sharing the duties with Everett Withers, who also coached safeties. After coming within earshot of playing for a national title in 2013, it was clear to Meyer that a change had to be made on defense.In 2014, Fickell was the one who stayed and Withers took another job while current Rutgers head coach Chris Ash was hired by Meyer to replace Withers. The Buckeyes’ secondary underwent a complete overhaul, improving to 15th in passing defense and picking off 25 passes on its way to a national championship. Fickell, in charge of the linebackers, transformed Darron Lee into a freshman All-American after switching from safety.Fickell has produced 12 NFL draft picks so far in his coaching career, as well as dominated the state of Ohio in recruiting — a couple reasons why the University of Cincinnati hired him as its next head coach.“You do not have to be on the best terms at all times,” Fickell said. “Sometimes discomfort breeds growth. To push somebody deep down inside, you gotta know it’s for a reason. That’s the thing I can say, at times, we’ve had these discussions before we’ve had tough times. That’s a part of the game and what you really do is step back and able to realize how much you respect him because of it.”In the midst of preparing for OSU’s national semifinal bout against Clemson on Dec. 31 in Glendale, Arizona, Fickell accepted an offer from Cincinnati to become the Bearcats next head football coach. The long-tenured Ohioan — the one who played for St. Francis DeSales High School in Columbus, played for John Cooper for four years and coached under Jim Tressel — now will attempt to create his own legacy in the same state that he has built his career.A career that Fickell said wouldn’t be anything without his wife, Amy, and their six children.“Sometimes you take advantage of the people you love the most,” he said. “My family understands that. My wife understands that, my kids understand that, I hope, to some extent. For right now, those are the things that suffer the most. I couldn’t do that without a great wife.”Defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Luke Fickell celebrates with junior cornerback Doran Grant (12) following an interception during a game against Purdue Nov. 2, 2013 at Ross-Ade Stadium. OSU won, 56-0.Credit: Lantern File PhotoIf Fickell had left after 2013 for another job, he said that it wouldn’t have felt right not leaving on a high note. When former OSU offensive coordinator Tom Herman was hired at Houston during preparation for the College Football Playoff in 2014, he chose to coach throughout the playoff with the Buckeyes. Fickell will do the same this year, preparing for the CFP semifinal against the No. 2 Clemson Tigers (12-1), while trying to balance his position at Cincinnati.“I told them even when I was introduced down at Cincinnati, I wanted to look at every kid and make them realize why I’m doing what I’m doing,” Fickell said. “I’m doing what I’m doing because we started something and I would never start something without finishing it.”One of the players that Fickell has impacted the most is junior linebacker Raekwon McMillan. A five-star recruit from Hinesville, Georgia, that Fickell recruited, McMillan said the best quality about Fickell is his trust in his coaching, sticking with one defensive philosophy since McMillan’s freshman year in 2014.McMillan was an impact player on the national championship team and soon will be another member of Fickell’s linebackers in the NFL. In his time at OSU, Fickell said he hasn’t seen a player that means more to a unit than McMillan.“He’s been able to guide me through all my blessings I’ve been given here at Ohio State and put me in the position I’m in today,” McMillan said. “Through the ups and downs, he stayed on my side, and even the guys beside me, nurtured us and have us become men.”In his last days as a an assistant coach at OSU, Fickell is facing one of his most difficult tasks yet as a defensive coach. Clemson averages 505.5 yards per game on offense, led by Heisman Trophy finalist Deshaun Watson.In 2014, when Clemson put up 40 points and over 500 yards against the Buckeyes, some thought that result would spell the end for Fickell’s time in Columbus. Since then, Fickell has turned into one of Meyer’s most trusted colleagues the past three seasons.“One of the greatest things I’ve ever done was keep Luke Fickell,” Meyer said. “He’s a loyal, good man and a very good friend of mine. We’ll be very close for a long time.”
Freshman goalie Matt Tomkins protects his goal during a game against Michigan State Jan. 11 at the Schottenstein Center. The teams tied, 1-1.Credit: Kelly Roderick / For The LanternFreshman goalie Matt Tomkins returned to the lineup as the Ohio State men’s hockey team took four points from a weekend series against Michigan State.Tomkins, who sustained an injury during a 6-1 victory against Niagara Nov. 9, tallied 59 saves over the two games as OSU (11-6-1, 1-2-1) earned its first-ever points in the Big Ten play.A season-high crowd of more than 8,000 Saturday saw the Spartans ride an early lead all the way into the third period, only for the Buckeyes’ junior forward Darik Angeli to score midway through the final stanza.Neither team could find the winning goal in the final minutes or in the overtime period. The shootout ended 3-2 in favor of Michigan State, as Angeli was stopped by sophomore goalie Jake Hildebrand, giving the Spartans (6-10-3, 0-2-2) the extra point in the Big Ten conference standings.Friday night’s game saw the Buckeyes — who are tied for second in the Big Ten in goals per game with 3.25 — continue their strong attacking in a 5-3 victory. Leading the charge was junior forward Ryan Dzingel, whose three goals, to go along with an assist on a goal by junior forward Nick Oddo, extend his streak of games with at least a point to 10.Dzingel credited the play of his two linemates, Oddo and freshman forward Nick Schilkey, as the key to his recent success.“I feel like our line has been clicking and we know where each other are on the ice,” Dzingel said. “I enjoy playing with these guys and I was just fortunate enough to get a couple goals.”Michigan State coach Tom Anastos said after Friday’s game his team “had to be better” in the defensive zone.“I thought it was a big difference in our game because (defense is) really part of our identity,” Anastos said. “That’s the expectations we have, so that was much more in alignment with how we should be playing all the time.”The Buckeyes are scheduled to play against Big Ten opponents for the rest of the regular season. Coach Steve Rohlik said the competitive nature of the two games against Michigan State is something that will be repeated ad nauseam in the Big Ten.“It’s going to be a broken record every weekend,” Rohlik said. “It’s going to make our players better and it’s going to make us (as) coaches better.”Next up for the Buckeyes is a trip to Minneapolis for two games against No. 1 Minnesota. Their first game against the Gophers is outdoors at TCF Bank Stadium, home of Minnesota’s football team. Puck drop for the game is set for 9 p.m. Friday.

Actress Emilia Clarke from the HBO series “Game of Thrones” arrives at the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, California U.S., September 18, 2016.ReutersGame of Thrones star Emilia Clarke opened up about the scope of episode five of season eight. The Daenerys Targaryen actor spoke to Jimmy Kimmel and said that the fifth episode of the final season of Game of Thrones will blow the minds of fans. Emilia also teased what’s to come in the final three episodes of the HBO series.Episode three of the hit HBO TV show left a lot to be desired, with a lot of fans having issues with the lighting of the episode. The darkness pervading the third episode left many fans disappointed. Reportedly, “The Long Night” was the longest battle sequence ever filmed, it took 55 long nights in the dark to film and set a record of 17.8 million viewers. But according to Emilia Clarke, the “Battle of Winterfell” was nothing compared to what’s going to come in episode five. Emilia CalrkeGetty Images”Episode five is bigger. Episode five is, I mean, four and five and six, they’re all insane, but like… Find the biggest TV you can.”Speaking of TVs the last episode’s shortcomings were blamed on the TVs viewers used, which we have to say is a preposterous excuse. Hopefully, the fifth episode will have epic and gigantic moments which will satisfy viewers on whatever TV they choose to watch.The final season of Game of Thrones has so far been somewhat disappointing. But with three episodes remaining, we hope that Game of Thrones signs off on a high note. Emilia Clarke’s character Daenerys Targaryen is likely to have a very important role to play in the final episodes. The next episode of Game of Thrones will air on May 5.

An aerial view of Doha’s diplomatic area. Reuters file photoSaudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain severed their ties with Qatar on Monday, accusing it of supporting terrorism, in an unprecedented breach between the most powerful members of the Gulf Cooperation Council.The coordinated move dramatically escalates a dispute over Qatar’s support of the Muslim Brotherhood, the world’s oldest Islamist movement, and adds accusations that Doha even backs the agenda of regional arch-rival Iran.The three Gulf states announced the closure of transport ties with Qatar and gave Qatari visitors and residents two weeks to leave their countries. Qatar was also expelled from a Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen.These were more severe measures than during a previous eight-month rift in 2014, when Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the UAE withdrew their ambassadors from Doha. At that time, travel links were maintained and Qataris were not expelled.A split between Doha and its closest allies can have repercussions around the Middle East where Gulf states have used their financial and political power to influence events in Libya, Egypt, Syria, Iraq and Yemen.Qatar is also due to host the World Cup in 2022.AL JAZEERAIn a statement on state news agency SPA, oil giant Saudi Arabia accused Qatar of backing militant groups and spreading their violent ideology, in an apparent reference to Qatar’s influential state-owned satellite channel al Jazeera.“(Qatar) embraces multiple terrorist and sectarian groups aimed at disturbing stability in the region, including the Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS (Islamic State) and al-Qaeda, and promotes the message and schemes of these groups through their media constantly,” SPA said.The statement went on to accuse Qatar of supporting what it described as Iranian-backed militants in its restive and largely Shi’ite Muslim-populated Eastern region of Qatif and in Bahrain.There was no immediate Qatari reaction to the announcements, and Qatari officials could not be reached for comment, but it has denied supporting terrorism or Iran in the past.Egypt, the Arab world’s most populous nation, said on its state news agency that Qatar’s policy “threatens Arab national security and sows the seeds of strife and division within Arab societies according to a deliberate plan aimed at the unity and interests of the Arab nation.”
