LIVE STREAMING VIDEO FROM CANADA 

Ottawa is in lockdown as police search for up to three gunmen after one was reportedly shot dead inside Canada’s parliament building. Police told the AFP news agency that possibly up to three shooters were feared to be on the roof of the building in the capital. It came after a soldier guarding a nearby war memorial was wounded after shots were fired.  Shots have also now been reported at a hotel and a mall in the city. Armed forces bases across the country are being closed to the public in the aftermath of the shooting, according to CBC TV.

Shots In Canada Parliament

A construction worker at the parliament told the Reuters news agency he heard a gunshot, and then saw a man dressed in black with a scarf over his face running towards the building with a gun. Another witness said more than 30 shots were fired inside the building. Witness Marc-Andre Viau said he saw a man run into a caucus meeting at the parliament, chased by police who yelled “take cover.” This was followed by “10, 15, maybe 20 shots,” possibly from an automatic weapon, he said. Video footage posted by the Global and Mail newspaper showed police crouching for cover as they advanced along a stone hallway, with loud gunfire echoing among the gothic columns.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper is safe and has left Parliament Hill.

Michelle Rempel, MP for Calgary Centre North, tweeted: “Mom im okay Im in hiding.” Some people fled parliament by climbing down scaffolding erected for renovations, witnesses told the Canadian Press news agency. The cordon has been pushed back and media on the scene have been told they are not safe. Police have warned people in Ottawa to stay away from windows and roofs.  The wounded soldier, who was standing guard at the National War Memorial, has been taken away in an ambulance. The soldier appeared to be seriously wounded and medics were seen pushing on his chest to revive him. The shooting comes two days after an Islamic convert ran down two Canadian soldiers near Montreal, killing one of them. Authorities had raised the security threat level from low to medium after that incident.

Muslim Brotherhood has a ‘significant presence’ in Canada

Scotland’s main parties to discuss further devolution at Smith commission


Scottish Parliament

Scottish Parliament, Edinburgh

By Shaun Gibson : @ShaunyNews

SCOTLAND’S politicians will put aside party differences today to work on more devolved powers to the Scottish parliament. Representatives from five Scottish parties – two each from the SNP, Labour, the Conservatives, the Lib Dems and the Greens – will be told by Lord Smith of Kelvin to find consensus on bringing new powers to Scotland when they meet in Edinburgh Lord Smith and the politicians are on a tight timetable to deliver the vow made by the pro-Union parties to deliver more powers for Scotland in the event of a No vote. With a Command paper already issued, the parties have to agree a way forward by the end of November . Then the UK Government will put forward draft legislative proposals based on what is agreed in a bill in January.

Lord Smith has the responsibility of getting parties to agree

Lord Smith has the responsibility of getting parties to agree

The bill will be brought forward after the general election by whatever government come in. Reaching consensus on the points that can be agreed will be the easy part in the first formal session of the Smith Commission. The five Scottish parties have already submitted their proposals so everyone is aware of each other’s demands. The focus will be on finding common ground, something Lord Smith is optimistic about. He said: “Having spoken to all of the parties individually, I believe the will is there to reach 
agreement. “Today’s talks give them the chance to sit down together, find common ground and begin the process of delivering what the people of Scotland expect – a package of new powers which will strengthen the Scottish Parliament within the UK.”

Easily-dealt with issues include devolving the powers of the Crown Estate Commission, who own 
the seabeds around the UK and receive rents from Scotland’s fish farm and offshore wind turbine operators. Moving beyond that, there may be agreement on devolving powers such as funds for housing benefit and aspects of welfare including attendance allowance and job training. Nicola Sturgeon has already said that the process must deliver “something substantial.” The First Minister-elect knows independence won’t come out of the talks but wants something very close to it. She said. “The language that was used during the referendum campaign was very clear. The other parties, in seeking to persuade people to vote No, said that more powers would amount to near federalism, a modern form of home rule, devo max.”

Nicola and Alex have all the balls in their side of the court

Nicola and Alex have all the balls in their side of the court  ;-)

Parties

All 5 must agree

The SNP submission makes great play of the campaign pledges of other party leaders, laying plenty of ground to cry foul if, in their eyes, the powers package falls short of what was solomnly pledged. Alex Salmond, now cast in the role of pointman for the SNP as his formal leadership role fades, has already talked of “betrayal”. The Scottish Government have called for maximum devolution within the UK, including full control over tax and fiscal policy, in a wide-ranging set of proposals stopping just short of full 
independence.But the demands of the SNP and the Greens for devo max powers will sail right over the bar of one of the Commission’s key remits, to maintain the integrity of the UK. The great faultine may not be if the Commission deliver devo-max demands, they will not, but on how much and how far they will go up to that limit.

There are major disagreements between Labour and the Conservatives on the issue of tax devolution . In the run-up to the talks the trickery of David Cameorn on linking whether or not Scottish MPs should continue to be allowed to vote on English-only issues in the House of Commons has fouled the atmosphere . The Tories want to go further on the handover of tax levying powers than Labour do. Complete devolution of tax raising powers would be independence by the back door, Gordon Brown has argued. But the Lib Dems, who want Holyrood to have complete control of the rates and bands of personal income tax, seem unfazed.

The Conservatives and Lib Dems want Edinburgh to be in charge of setting rates and bands of personal income tax while Labour would impose limits, lower than even Brown wants. Brown wants Holyrood to be responsible for raising 54 per cent of its own revenue, quadrupling the figure from the £4billion it currently raises to £18billion in 2016. Scottish Labour want powers that would allow the Scottish Government to raise 40 per cent of their budget. There is plenty of room for the parties to fall out, as they will, but also pressure on them to find 
agreement too.

Meanwhile, former first minister Jack McConnell fired a shot across the bows of the Commission and his own party yesterday saying that the quick fix must stand the test of time. He said: “If you are designing a new tax system for Scotland, the system has to work and be sustainable for at least a number of years. “I hope Lord Smith will note the proposals from the different parties but then start a discussion on the basic principles that should then determine what is delivered.” He added: “Deals reached behind closed doors are not going to reach a semi-permanent solution. This has to be seen as based on principle and stand the test of time.”

The representatives on the commission:

SNP - Scottish Finance Secretary John Swinney and Linda Fabiani MSP.
Scottish Labour - Finance spokesman Iain Gray MSP and shadow work and pensions minister Gregg McClymont MP.
Former Scottish Conservative leader Annabel Goldie will represent her party with Glasgow University law professor Adam Tomkins.
The Scottish Liberal Democrats – Former Scottish Secretary Michael Moore MP and former party leader Tavish Scott MSP.
The Scottish Green Party - Co-leaders Patrick Harvie MSP and Edinburgh councillor Maggie Chapman.

2 Americans, 1 Spanish Nurse Cured Of Ebola, As Sign’s Of World Pandemic Slow


Ashoka Mukpo is thankful for the treatment that saved his life

Ashoka Mukpo is thankful for the treatment that saved his life

By Shaun Gibson : @ShaunyNews

Well it looks like Ebola is calming down very fast in the USA, THANKFULLY! No reports now in 5 days since President Obama asked the Media to calm down with every story of a person sick on a plane and other stories, frightening people and giving people like me Ebola news to write about. http://acenewsdesk.wordpress.com/2014/10/19/obama-warns-americans-against-ebola-hysteria/ Pretty much since that speech, there have been not one new report or scare. This is good, 2 Countries in Africa, Senegal and Nigeria are now Ebola free Countries, so I think we, as a World have beaten Ebola. I hope I am not speaking too soon. In West Africa a few Countries are still struggling badly, so we remain vigilant, but this here is fantastic news anyway you tell it, lets hope and pray this trend continues over the coming weeks, we must however still listen to the CDC and W.H.O The World Health Organisation said just 10 days ago it will spread worse.

W.H.O and CDC Have both said in the last 10/14 days Ebola will spread to around 10,000 infected a day

A photojournalist has been cured of Ebola as the United States tightens restrictions on travellers from West African countries. Ashoka Mukpo, who was working as a freelance cameraman for NBC News in Monrovia, Liberia, when he fell ill, will go home on Wednesday. In a statement, the 33-year-old American said he was humbled by his recovery.

“Too many are not as fortunate and lucky as I’ve been. I’m very happy to be alive.”

Eight people including Mr Mukpo have or are being treated for ebola in the US; one of whom, a man from Liberia, has died.

One of the two nurses infected with the virus while treating a Liberian patient in Dallas is now faring better, the National Institutes of Health said on Tuesday.

Nina Pham’s condition has been upgraded from fair to good. Emory Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia, which is treating the second nurse, Amber Vinson, has so far has not given an update on her condition. Her mother said she remained weak, without offering further details. The stories of recovery came amid news that passengers travelling to the US from three West African countries must enter the country through one of five airports. The designated airports are New York’s Kennedy, Newark Liberty, Washington’s Dulles, Chicago’s O’Hare and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta. Each of these hospitals implemented enhanced ebola screenings earlier this month. Government officials said about 94% of the estimated 150 daily passengers from the stricken region pass through those five airports. Homeland Security chief Jeh Johnson said the decision was based on the department’s “ongoing response to prevent the spread of Ebola to the United States”.

Ebola crisis: Spanish nurse Teresa Romero cured of virus after final test clears her

Spanish Nurse Teresa Romero is cured from Ebola

A Spanish nurse who was the first person to catch Ebola outside Africa has been cured of the deadly virus according to doctors treating her. “She is now cured,” Dr Jose Ramon Arribas, head of Madrid’s Carlos III Hospital’s infectious diseases unit, told reporters. The diagnosis of Teresa Romero, 44, on October 6 sparked fears that the disease would spread through Europe. But Dr Arribas gave the nurse the all clear and declared “the criteria set by the World Health Organisation for curing the Ebola virus have been fulfilled”. She has had two negative tests in the past 48 hours indicating she was now clear of Ebola, after being in isolation in hospital since contracting the disease.

Ms Romero was one of the nursing staff at the Carlos III hospital who treated two elderly Spanish missionaries who caught the disease in West Africa and died in Madrid in August and September. It is believed she was given human serum containing antibodies from Ebola survivors and other drugs. Despite being cleared she will remain in hospital until she has fully recovered. Ms Romero’s husband Javier Limon and another 14 people who had contact with her before she was diagnosed are under observation at the hospital but none has yet shown symptoms. Dr Arribas said a specialist laboratory confirmed that a fourth and final round of tests had shown her to be clear of the virus.

The news sparked relief after two tense weeks which raised public sympathy for the nurse and questions about safety procedures and public spending cuts in Spain’s health sector. “Someone surviving the Ebola virus is always a cause for celebration,” said Marta Arsuaga, one of the doctors who have been working round the clock treating Ms Romero. Dr Arribas said that according to WHO guidelines, officials will have to wait until 42 days after the curing of the last infected patient to declare the country free of Ebola. Ebola, which begins with fever and can then escalate to diarrhoea, vomiting, internal bleeding and organ failure, has killed more than 4,500 people.

US funnels travellers from Ebola-hit nations to five airports

Flights from West Africa arrive here, as Obama finally acts on air travel

Meanwhile, a US photojournalist infected with Ebola in Liberia is now free of the virus and will go home, the Nebraska hospital treating him said. “Recovering from Ebola is a truly humbling feeling,” said Ashoka Mukpo, who was working as a freelance cameraman for NBC News in Monrovia when he fell ill. Travellers entering the United States whose trips originated in Ebola-stricken Liberia, Sierra Leone or Guinea must now fly into one of five airports that have enhanced screening in place. The restrictions will subject affected travellers to temperature tests among other protocols at New York’s JFK, New Jersey’s Newark, Washington Dulles, Atlanta and Chicago’s O’Hare international airports. Those airports account for about 94 per cent of the passengers flying to the United States from the Ebola-hit nations. The restrictions, announced by the US department of homeland security, will take effect from Wednesday (US time) and apply to all travellers, including US citizens and those who would have arrived by land or sea.

US health authorities said the condition of a nurse infected with Ebola has been upgraded to good. Nina Pham was one of two nurses in Dallas who became infected with Ebola while treating Liberian patient Thomas Duncan, who died of the disease on October 8. “Ms Pham’s clinical status has been upgraded from fair to good,” the National Institutes of Health said in a statement. No additional details were available at this time, it added. Emory Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia, which is treating the second nurse, Amber Vinson, so far has not given an update on her condition. Her mother said on Monday she remained weak, without offering further details.

Chicago man to Obama: ‘Don’t touch my girlfriend’ – Obama’s Security does ‘nothing’


Via CBS Chicago

Via CBS Chicago

By Shaun Gibson : @ShaunyNews

Now I always use Logic when I hear ANY story, it is just how I condition myself now as an adult. Whenever someone sends me something like I am sharing here, I always look for other reasons, I can’t describe why I do it, I just do it, most stories are legit, but sometime the story is real, but manufactured, made up, made to be, a photo opportunity, something to make the person look ‘Better’ or in a better light. This video here is when Obama went to vote on Wednesday morning and the woman to his left was just voting as anyone would, suddenly her boyfriend ‘Mike’ comes into the picture and, well I will let you see first, video is over a minute long, you will see where I am going. Also I got the video from my good friend Anne over at http://talesalongtheway.com/ What you think right away?

Now, I am only asking. Mike walks in-front of the post powerful man on the planet, the President Of The United States Of America and threatens him. I am asking simply, in the “Police State America” many are seeing and noticing and sharing about Police brutality and all the other stuff. Why was Mike allowed to walk past the POTUS and say this. Obama’s security team must be asleep or not there. What if Mike had a gun? So what do you think? Was this as you see, just good fun, or staged? I know I over think things, but LOGIC and the USA as it is just now, this video seems ‘Strange’ in the current climate

The Most ‘Distrusted’ News Sources In America

You know there’s a problem with the media when Al-Jazeera is trusted more than NBC, CNN, and MSNBC. As Pew research’s Journalism Project shows in the following table, the study attempted to measure not just whether people had heard of a variety of news sources, but which ones they really trusted when it came time to get straight info about politics and governments.

From “most distrusted” to least…

As Pew Research’s Journalism Project reports,

There is not a single news source distrusted by at least half of all panelists or those with mixed or mostly conservative views. Six sources are distrusted 50% or more of consistent conservatives distrust and four are distrusted by most consistent liberals.

It’s worth keeping in mind when reading the table that the ‘distrust’ numbers may be low for some less well known outlets mainly because most respondents have never heard of them, rather than…

Rob Ford kicked out of three polling stations, warned by officials about breaking election rules

Originally posted on National Post | News:

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is once again accused of breaking city rules after he was kicked out of three advance polling stations late last week.

Ford, who is undergoing treatment for a rare type of cancer, was asked to leave from polling stations on both Thursday and Friday. On Saturday, he was sent a letter from the city clerk informing him that he was breaking the Municipal Elections Act by appearing at the voting stations.

Ford visited a polling station in Ward 17 later Saturday and was again asked to leave. All three wards (he was in Ward 8 on Thursday and Ward 7 on Friday) are out of the ward where he is running for city councillor (Ward 2).
