In my last blog, I shared an article written by The Hindu, an Indian national newspaper, about my journey to Miss World Canada. Since the day the article hit the stands, my phone has not stopped ringing with notifications !! I have recieved over 400 messages from people across India, Canada and USA that I have never met or known, extending their support on my journey to Miss World Canada.. I lost track of the articles, TV clippings and media posts that have been written about me as Miss Northern Alberta, but more importantly about my fight to empowering young girls through education. Below are links to the national newspapers and websites that have featured articles about me and my platform. Give it a read and let me know your thoughts.. Before I end this post, I want to express my sincere gratitude to all those who have taken their valuable time to LIKE, SHARE and send supporting messages and blessings my way. All the love that I have recieved since the day I started my journey has encouraged ...
The Council of Alberta University Students (CAUS) represents the interests of over 100,000 Alberta university students across Alberta. They represent undergraduate students from the University of Alberta, the University of Calgary, the University of Lethbridge, Mount Royal University, and MacEwan University to the public, government and other post-secondary education stakeholders. Based in Edmonton, CAUS is a non-partisan and active advocacy group looking to ensure a fully accessible and high quality system of education in Alberta. The Council of Alberta University Students (CAUS) was created in 1986 after the disintegration of the Federation of Alberta Students (FAS). FAS was a provincial umbrella organization that represented all of the public post-secondary institutions in Alberta; the organization fell apart in 1981 when a number of colleges and technical institutes withdrew their membership from the organization because they felt that the universities dominated the Federation. Out of the ...

New statistics released by the province show that 113 people died from fentanyl overdoses in the first three months of this year.. The numbers show that the crisis in Alberta continues to grow in both size and scope.. By comparison, there were 70 fentanyl-related deaths in the first three months of 2016.. The latest statistics, released Friday by Alberta Health, show that 363 people in Alberta died from fentanyl overdoses in 2016. Those numbers reflect the most recent data available. In its update, Alberta Health said the numbers are subject to change because certification about the cause of death can take six months or longer.. The Alberta Health statistics report shows that fentanyl, 100 times more powerful than morphine, is by far the leading cause of opioid overdose deaths in the province.. But deaths related to another, even more powerful drug, are also rising sharply.. Carfentanil, which is 10,000 times more potent than morphine and 100 times more potent than fentanyl, was detected in 21 ...

EDMONTON … Today, the Métis Nation of Alberta (MNA) released the first report of its kind that outlines the health status of Métis Albertans.. The report, called Health Status of the Métis Population of Alberta, was made possible as a result of an Information Sharing Agreement and a $250,000 grant from Alberta Health to the MNA. The grant was used to develop a public health surveillance program to better understand the health status of Métis Albertans. The MNA also received funding from the Public Health Agency of Canada to support the surveillance efforts.. MNA President Audrey Poitras said, We continue to remain true to our commitment to improve the health and well-being for Métis Albertans and today, we are pleased to report on the results of our partnership with Alberta Health…It has been three years since we began this endeavour, and although the results of the report are concerning, we look forward to starting on a new path to translate this information into appropriate and ...
Much above normal precipitation was recorded in a band across the province from Peace River and Jasper to Cold Lake, whereas northeastern Alberta recorded normal precipitation and the northwestern corner of the province recorded below normal precipitation. Most of southern Alberta recorded below normal to normal precipitation except in Rocky Mountain House, High River, and Claresholm where much above normal precipitation occurred, and the Drumheller, Brooks, and Medicine Hat areas where much below normal precipitation was recorded (Figure 5). Fall precipitation totals are illustrated in Figure 6. Soil moisture conditions in agricultural areas of the province, as measured by Alberta Agriculture for October 31, 2005 , can be seen in Figure 7. Soil moisture generally ranges from normal to well above normal in southern and western Alberta, with the most notable exceptions being in the High Level and Edson areas, which range from below normal to extreme deficit.

The oil-sand ores of northern Alberta provide a significant proportion of the overall energy portfolio for North America. Surprisingly, the presence of nano-sized clay minerals plays a defining role both in the extraction of bitumen and in tailings management. Although seemingly insignificant in size, naturally occurring clay minerals present in the oil sand ores of northern Alberta create significant challenges in all aspects of bitumen extraction and recovery, processing of oil sand ores, and management of tailings. Although a significant body of knowledge exists in relation to the characterization of oil-sands clay minerals, much of this work has focused on the identification of the clay minerals present and not on their respective surface chemistries. This chapter focuses on some of the unique structural features of the clay minerals found in the oil sands and their respective surface chemistries. ...

Two people with influenza died in Central Alberta over the Christmas holidays bringing the total deaths to three this flu season.. As of Dec. 31, Alberta Health Services Central Zone also had 210 confirmed flu cases and 27 people admitted to hospital.. Across Alberta, 13 people with the flu have died and 478 admitted to hospital. There has been 1,768 laboratory-confirmed flu cases, and Calgary is the hardest with 1,036.. Most of what were seeing is the specific strain which hits older people harder, which doesnt mean that it doesnt impact other people. I think thats sometimes a misconception. It can be serious for any age, said Deena Hinshaw, medical officer of health with AHS Central Zone.. She said four outbreaks in seniors facilities have been reported in the zone so far this season.. During the 2015-16 flu season, there were 62 influenza-related deaths in Alberta, including five people from Central Alberta. AHS Central Zone had 774 lab-confirmed flu cases and 202 Central Albertans were ...
With the new provincial budget freshly on the table, and budget cuts expected once the details are unveiled later this month, the University of Albertas Parkland Institute, in conjunction with the Alberta Federation of Labour, will be hosting a conference entitled Re-Making Alberta: Recession Alternatives for an Alberta that Works. Diana Gibson, research director for the institute, points out how the Stelmach government has been taking the low road to economic recovery by introducing budget cuts to social services. In response, the conference has invited keynote speaker Asbjorn Wahl, Norwegian labour leader, to discuss recovery alternatives based on other models from outside Alberta.. The Alberta government is taking such a different path from what other governments have done in this recession. So many mainstream economic organizations were saying, step up the stimulus, and dont talk about belt tightening as the recession spiraled down, notes Gibson. And our government talked about ...

Natures Past Episode 38: Histories of Canadian Environmental Issues, Part VIII - Tar Sands. Here are ten books to contextualize the Alberta tar sands:. Chastko, Paul. Developing Albertas Oil Sands: From Karl Clark to Kyoto. Calgary: University of Calgary Press, 2004.. Focused on the politics of tar sands development in Alberta, particularly the inconsistent tensions between the federal and provincial governments, this book thoroughly explores the decisions taken at both the local and national level that contributed to Canada becoming a world leader in petroleum production. Divided into two parts, pre- and post-1945, Chastko identifies the importance of industry and scientific expertise in Alberta to the discovery of feasible techniques for separating the bitumen from the sand, before moving on to the role that foreign markets, federal-provincial tax structures, and emerging environmental concerns had for the growth of the industry in Alberta during the postwar years..

The purpose of the surveillance program has changed over the years. It was initiated to provide evidence of disease freedom for the entire provincial farmed cervid population in order to gain access to external markets for Alberta farmed cervids and cervid products. Since the mandatory program began, the CWD disease situation in Alberta has changed. The primary factor causing the change was the diagnosis of CWD in free ranging mule and white-tailed deer in 2005 in Alberta along the Saskatchewan border. Since that time, there have been 94 cases of CWD identified in free ranging deer in Alberta suggesting that CWD has become established in the free ranging deer population. The goal of demonstrating provincial freedom from CWD is no longer justified. CWD surveillance in Alberta is now primarily used by individual producers and marketers to provide confidence that the herds of origin are unlikely to be infected with CWD. The program required review and modification to update it from the original ...

Sun. Mar 2 - 4:46 AM. EDMONTON - Janelle Vermillion owns a house in the tiny northern Alberta community of Fort Chipewyan. Her family, including her brother, still lives there. She considers it home.. But the 27-year-old woman says she will never again feel safe living there.. I just want to move back home, she said, fighting back tears as she gestured to the pink-clad six-month-old baby in the stroller in front of her.. But this is my daughter, and I dont want to bring her back.. Vermillion was one of about 200 people who rallied on the steps of the Alberta legislature Saturday calling on the provincial government - whatever form it takes after Mondays election - to pay more attention to rates of cancer and illness in the community 600 kilometres north of Edmonton.. Many people believe oilsands development and major forestry mills in Fort McMurray, which is upstream from Fort Chipewyan, have led to contamination of the water and wildlife in the region.. Emotions ran high as the crowd ...
A quick transformation of an InnoTech Alberta facility helped the Government of Alberta set up the countrys first lab to research whirling disease and learn more about its presence in Albertas fish populations. The unique facility, previously used for autopsies on large animals, was transformed over six weeks and is now a lab working to detect a parasite that is new to our Canadian landscape.. The province has dedicated $9.3 million to determine the extent of whirling disease-part of a three-point action plan to provide emergency response and early detection, education and mitigation. From that, $2.9 million will go towards funding six full-time technicians, operating the InnoTech Alberta lab and hiring additional staff across the province as part of education and mitigation efforts.. We spoke with lab technicians Kenley Bzdel and Provincial Fish Disease Specialist Bev Larson to learn more.. ...

In northern Alberta, mining operations to obtain bitumen from the oil sands generates large volumes of tailings. These are a mixture of sand, clay, water, organic solvents and residual bitumen that are deposited into old open pits, creating tailings ponds, where they are allowed to settle with the final goal of land reclamation. To speed up the sedimentation process, the addition of gypsum (CaSO4 ∙ 2H2O) is currently a management approach used bysome companies. This creates a deep watery mud line with very low oxygen permeability and enough sulfate to support the growth of anaerobic microbial communities. In this thesis work, the microbial physiology and communities associated with oil sands tailings ponds were assessed. Chemical, physiological, and molecular biology approaches were used to determine the key microbial processes (methanogenesis, sulfate reduction/oxidation), identify key substrates, and determine the dominant microbial community members in the anaerobic and aerobic zones of ...
Fusarium head blight damage in wheat. (Photo: Kelly Turkington). Cereal growers in Alberta have a new weapon in the fight against fusarium head blight (FHB). Its an online risk assessment tool that helps farmers and agronomists decide whether to apply fungicides based on the likelihood of the disease turning up in their area.. Brian Kennedy, grower relations and extension manager for the Alberta Wheat Commission (AWC), says the tool was launched in the summer of 2017 following requests from wheat producers in the province.. They had been seeing fusarium risk maps from Manitoba and Saskatchewan … and they asked us to develop something, he says.. The tool was developed for the AWC by numerous partners, including Ralph Wright and Pavel Pytlak from Alberta Climate Information Services, plant pathologist Michael Harding and crop specialist Neil Whatley from Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada plant disease researcher Kelly Turkington..

It used to be your grandpas hobby, but not any more says Keehan Dowd, president of the Northern Alberta Radio Club.. Some people see the hobby dying from the old perspective of vacuum tubes and Morse codes. But were embracing the Internet and digital ...

Ammonia and Particulate Matter Emissions Inventory for Confined Feeding Operations in Alberta. Atia, A., I. Edeogu. Concerns associated with growth, economic and environmental risks and sustainability, social license to operate, market access, climate change, among several others, including food safety, are increasingly faced by the agricultural crop and livestock sectors in Alberta today. In 2005, the confined feeding operation (CFO) industry - beef cattle (feedlot), dairy cattle, poultry, swine and sheep - in the province embarked on a project to develop a strategic plan that would assist the industry with managing air emissions from CFOs in the province. The strategic plan was completed in 2008 and one of its many recommendations was for the development of a new emissions inventory for the CFO industry. In 2012, APMEICA - Ammonia and Particulate Matter Emissions Inventory for Confined Feeding Operations in Alberta - was released. Statistics Canada 2006 census data, semi-annual agricultural survey

Few ankylosaurs are known from more than a single specimen, but the ankylosaurid Euoplocephalus tutus (from the Late Cretaceous of Alberta, Canada and Montana, USA) is represented by dozens of skulls and partial skeletons, and is therefore an important taxon for understanding intraspecific variation in ankylosaurs. Euoplocephalus is unusual compared to other dinosaurs from the Late Cretaceous of Alberta because it is recognized from the Dinosaur Park, Horseshoe Canyon, and Two Medicine formations. A comprehensive review of material attributed to Euoplocephalus finds support for the resurrection of its purported synonyms Anodontosaurus lambei and Scolosaurus cutleri, and the previously resurrected Dyoplosaurus acutosquameus. Anodontosaurus is found primarily in the Horseshoe Canyon Formation of Alberta and is characterized by ornamentation posterior to the orbits and on the first cervical half ring, and wide, triangular knob osteoderms. Euoplocephalus is primarily found in Megaherbivore Assemblage Zone 1
Click here for printable version. To the Premier of Alberta:. The average Alberta bureaucrat costs taxpayers $102,000 a year, and 10.3% more than their equivalent in the private sector. Bringing these salaries and benefits in line with the private sector would save taxpayers $1.4 billion a year.. Government defined-benefit pension plans are far richer than most retirements provided in the private sector, and all too often require a bailout by taxpayers.. We the undersigned call on the Alberta government to bring the pay, perks and pensions of government workers into line with the realities of the private sector.. ...
January 21, 2013 - News Release. Early warning systems using DNA to track environmental health, especially in protected areas near Canadian oil sands, mining and hydroelectric projects, are the goal of a major research project led by University of Guelph scientists.

Alberta Liberal Leader David Swann released the following statement to mark Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Awareness Day:. Today is the first PTSD Awareness Day in Alberta. This day was declared unanimously in the Legislature this year to raise awareness about those among us who suffer from PTSD, sometimes without anyone knowing.. Traumas happen in life, in death, and in all ages. How we manage them depends on personal resources, family support, and professional services. No judgement or shame should be attached to the different expressions of trauma in our lives, only help. This inaugural PTSD Awareness Day reminds us all of lifes fragility and our need for each other. It is not weakness to struggle with trauma, nor is it failure to reach out to others for support. Today I encourage all Albertans to educate themselves about the effects of trauma. I also call on organizations in fields with high risk of trauma to step up their awareness efforts and access to appropriate, ...
The human impact on the oceans, atmosphere, and life itself on this planet is so massive that it defines a new geological epoch, the Anthropocene.. During my PUBlic Professor talk Ill review the disquieting evidence for this claim and explore its philosophical and practical implications, both good and bad, for Alberta.. As the world moves rapidly into the new, non-carbon economy it will be possible for our province to create a sustainable prosperity that is not dependent upon cash flow from the sale of dwindling natural resources. But Albertans have to be willing to see the big picture. We cannot hope to continue business as usual in isolation from the powerful environmental factors that are shaping our world today.

That is exactly what is going to happen under obamacare. Obama has been very clear in his speeches about who will merit treatment undera government run healthcare system. You just to listen to his answers to questions. Ill have to look for the speech but earlier this summer he responded to a question about medical care for a non-curable illness and his response was essentially that what will end up getting covered are things that make you healthier. Remember also he responded to a question on the ABC health show from the White House that sometimes it is better to just take a pain pill than to say have surgical treatment (referencing a procedure that was done on an elderly woman). Ive read the house bill that had people up at arms in August and I have alot of concerns about how I would fare under Obamacare. Right now I have private health insurance but if under the healthcare bill it would be cheaper for my employer to drop private health insurance and just pay a fine (which it will be), my ...

Edmonton police say they have made the largest seizure of fentanyl pills in Canada.. An investigation by the Edmonton drug and gang enforcement unit ended in the seizure of 130,000 fentanyl pills with an estimated street value of $3.9 million, along with $1 million in cash.. This was a significant drug operation that has been dismantled, says Staff Sgt. Karen Ockerman in a news release Friday. We know we have saved lives by taking that quantity of fentanyl off the streets.. Police will speak about the seizures at a news conference at 1 p.m. MT. CBC is livestreaming the event. In March, police began investigating a group of people believed to be trafficking large amounts of illegal drugs. As part of that investigation, police searched an Edmonton home on July 5 and seized 67,000 fentanyl pills valued at about $2 million..
