It’s a large stretch of creek-carved California beauty just outside Malibu where Woodie Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Mick Fleetwood and John Densmore (of the Doors) all preferred to settle. Neil Young wrote music here; so did The Mama’s and the Papa’s, and it even had its own art movement called Semina (think stoned collage making.) If you didn’t know all of that, you probably got a good taste of Topanga Canyon in the 1969 classic Easy Rider, which was less a backdrop and more a character itself. If you can forget that Charles Mansion also sadly called this place home, Topanga Canyon is the picture of blazin’ California Freedom.And now thanks to Juniper Ridge, the scent of Topanga Canyon has been whiskey-distilled and captured in a bottle. The company’s founder, Hall Newbegin, describes the limited run aroma like this: “It’s Neil Young’s Cinnamon Girl on an old car radio and the hills exploding with sticky green life.” Called Topanga Canyon, Green Earth Rising, the image Newbegin paints, is an olfactory snapshot from the famed canyon taken this past April, and is a musky but floral concoction consisting of wild-foraged sage, lilac, fresh spring plants and rain-wet oak gathered by the Juniper Ridge gang.It’s a welcome and calming scent that hits the spot, especially since after a winter that was so unyielding. It comes in four, hand-numbered and very limited different products—312 oil based perfumes (.5oz, $75), 304 alcohol based colognes (1oz, $65), 296 solid colognes (.5oz, $55) and just 308 wonderful wilderness beard and face oils (2oz, $45)—which as far as we know, is the first oil for beards from the Juniper Ridge gang.

first_imgNew regulations are the first step in millions of dollars worthof compensation benefits for injured workers who suffer fromchronic pain. The regulations were approved by the government onWednesday, July 21. The regulations adopt a modified approach to the American MedicalAssociation (AMA) Guides 5th Edition as a framework forevaluating pain-related impairments. Workers with chronic painwill be assessed for a permanent medical impairment, which isthen used to calculate any applicable benefits. Government announced its intention to adopt this approach on May3, after the Workers’ Compensation Board did an extensive reviewand consultation with employers, labour, and injured workers. “The adoption of these regulations is the first step in enablingpayments to injured workers with work-related chronic pain,” saidKerry Morash, Minister responsible for the Workers’ CompensationBoard. “This is a fair approach that addresses the constitutionalissues raised by the Supreme Court, and it is sustainable.” It is estimated that the chronic pain benefit will deliver about$11 million annually to injured workers in the form of newbenefits. Workers who qualify will be eligible to receivecompensation back to the Charter date (April 17, 1985) or to thedate of their injury, which will provide sizable retroactivepayments. The new benefit will add about $168 million to theunfunded liability. The new regulations replace the Functional Restoration ProgramRegulations and Section 10B of the Workers’ Compensation Act. InOctober 2003 the Supreme Court of Canada rendered a decision on achronic pain appeal that found these passages to beunconstitutional. It said injured workers with chronic pain musthave the same access to the workers’ compensation system as otherinjured workers. In the near future, the Workers’ Compensation Board will beconsulting with stakeholders on a policy document outlining theimplementation of the chronic pain benefit.last_img read more

This will include police, paid and volunteer firefighters, paramedics, nurses, and provincial and federal correctional officers with workers’ compensation coverage allow coverage for other health service occupations to be added by regulation further clarify the process to receive presumptive PTSD coverage. Diagnosis will be required from a registered psychologist or psychiatrist. Government intends to consult key stakeholders following introduction of the bill. The province is committed to addressing workplace mental health, and co-hosted a mental health and PTSD conference last fall. One of the themes that arose included the need for presumptive PTSD benefits for emergency response workers. The amendments will take effect upon proclamation. Government is making it easier for emergency response workers diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to access benefits. Amendments to the Workers’ Compensation Act introduced today, April 28, will ensure covered emergency response workers no longer have to prove their PTSD diagnosis was caused by a workplace incident. They will also further clarify the claim process and who can get benefits. “We’re grateful for the valuable and sometimes heartbreaking work our emergency response workers do every day,” said Labour and Advanced Education Minister Kelly Regan. “We want to make it easier for those who suffer from PTSD to access benefits and treatment. These changes are a step in the right direction.” While stress due to traumatic events has always been covered under the Workers’ Compensation Act, it currently requires covered workers to prove their diagnosis is a direct result of a workplace incident. Some PTSD sufferers avoid getting help because of this process. The proposed amendments will:last_img read more

first_imgOTTAWA – More than one million jobs could be lost to the coming boom in automated vehicles with ripple effects beyond the likeliest victims, internal government documents warn.The documents from Employment and Social Development Canada give a glimpse into the ongoing concerns and policy options government officials have wrestled with to help workers whose jobs may be threatened, and young people who are entering the labour force.A 2017 presentation predicted automation could kill some 500,000 transportation jobs — from truck drivers to subway operators to taxi drivers and even courier services — as well as more than 600,000 additional jobs such as parking attendants, auto-body repair workers and even police and emergency personnel.It warns that retraining some of these workers may be difficult and that jobs they may turn to that require similar skills are also likely to be automated.A separate briefing note from earlier this year to the top official at the department said national efforts, some of which may not be within the government’s mandate, will be needed to counteract the negative effects of automation.The federal budget in 2017 pledged about $1.8 billion over six years to help pay for expanded skills training programs in provinces and territories to try and keep traditional workers from being left behind in a tech-fuelled economy. It is an issue Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the government is working on tackling.“We’ve seen the challenges and the anxieties that are out there amongst Canadians right across the country and our focus is on making sure that everyone has a real and fair chance to succeed,” Trudeau told a Monday morning meeting of representatives from Canada’s Building Trades Unions.Earlier this year the Liberals launched an advertising campaign to educate younger workers about federal programs and services that they can use to help navigate their entry into the workforce. A recent federally-funded opinion survey suggests there isn’t a lot of public awareness about government programs on this front, and recommended the government create an online tool to help workers navigate their ongoing education and training needsRBC is launching something along those lines this week, with a focus on the fears young people have landing a first job.Those fears are significant in the context of heightened nerves about whether the jobs young people are interested in doing will disappear as the world of work changes, said Mark Beckles, RBC’s senior director of youth strategy.“Employers today are hiring for the future and employers are telling us that many of the jobs for which they are hiring, young people are coming out of school without the requisite experience or requisite education,” Beckles said in an interview.“The challenge then becomes how do we close that skills gap to ensure that young people can come out of university or college with the right skills and the right experiences to be competitive for those jobs.”— Follow @jpress on Twitter.last_img read more

In Madagascar, ‘despite the severe impact, aid workers on the ground estimate that the in-country response capacities, including prepositioned stocks, of the Government and its UN and NGO [non-governmental organization] partners could address the current needs,’ Jens Laerke, spokesperson for the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), told journalists in Geneva today.Tropical storm Chedza has now killed some 14 people and displaced over 44,000 in Madagascar. A total of 101,000 people have been affected by the storm and attendat flooding. “There has been severe damage of infrastructure as nearly 4,000 houses have been destroyed or damaged,” said Mr. Laerke, adding that the storm also damaged eight health centres and 200 schools.Meanwhile, the UN World Food Programme (WFP) is providing emergency food assistance to some 15,000 people affected as the storm passed over the southwest and southeast of Madagascar, as well as the country’s capital, Antananarivo, added Elisabeth Byrs, spokesperson for WFP, in the same briefing.Moreover, WFP has distributed two tons of nutritious energy biscuits to young children and vulnerable people who are accommodated in temporary housing in Antananarivo, as an addition to rations food received from local authorities to boost nutrition.According to Ms. Byrs, WFP will also assist 5,000 people staying in ‘very precarious’ temporary accommodations in a poor neighbourhood of Antananarivo, by providing 23 tonnes of rice, pulses and high energy biscuits. In addition, WFP has distributed 17 tons of rice, pulses and enriched oil in Manakara Vohipeno and the southeast of the country. Turning to Malawi, Mr. Laerke said that search and rescue operations continue with relief supplies being dispatched to affected areas, and such assistance includes food and non-food items and chlorine for water treatment in affected communities.WFP began to deliver maize, beans, oil and super-cereal – a fortified corn blend – from in-country stocks to those displaced in Chikwawa district of Malawi on Saturday. However, Ms. Byrs stressed that the stocks will need to be replaced once the crisis is over. Distributions continue in that district and emergencies rations are due to arrive in Malawi today from the WFP-managed Dubai Humanitarian Depot. The estimated number of internally displaced persons (IDPs) remains at 121,000, with at least 50 people killed and 153 missing. The number of IDPs may increase as need assessments are still ongoing, Mr. Laerke noted. In Mozambique, rescue activities are still ongoing, but mainly by air, as over 90,000 people have been affected by the floods in the central and southern parts of the country. According to Mr. Laerke, at least 2,500 people have been brought to safety by the national Civil Protection Unit. He also added that latest reports show that 34 accommodation centres are hosting more than 28,000 people, as over 10,000 houses and 383 classrooms have been destroyed. read more

first_imgKangana Rananut, Taapsee Pannu, Rangoli ChandelInstagramEver since Rangoli Chandel had called Taapsee Pannu a ‘sasti copy’ of her sister Kangana Ranaut, the Mission Mangal actress has been on a ‘mission’ to show the Ranaut sisters where they stand. We have seen Kangana taking on Bollywood celebrities for not praising her and her movies and not celebrating the women power in the industry. So when Kangana missed out on praising any of the Mission Mangal actresses for their performances, Taapsee, in a way, exposed Kangana’s hypocrisy in her recent interview. And needless to say, Rangoli took offense of it.Slamming Kangana for her double standards, Taapsee told Mid-Day, “She has always spoken about how a woman should support another woman, but I did not hear any words of praise for my films. There are five women in Mission Mangal. Is she praising us? I am her junior and don’t have [as vast] a filmography as her, but I have done a decent number of films for someone to be appreciative of it.”Also calling out Kangana for being a feminist of convenience, the actress further said, “If I meet her, I will graciously walk up and say hello to her, or even her sister. It was triggered because I said she needs a double filter. Even Anurag [Kashyap] and I need that. How is that a negative thing? I saw her as an honest person. It’s sad that she says a woman cannot call out another woman. I will call out people basis who is wrong and right, and not based on what gender they belong to. Feminism is about an equal platform.”Many people would agree with Taapsee’s point of view and may find her complain fair and reasonable and she has every right to disagree with anyone. But it seems like Rangoli doesn’t believe in someone’s freedom to express especially when it is about her and her sister Kangana.Disrespecting Taapsee and her belittling her achievements in Bollywood, Rangoli stooped to a new low while launching a scathing attack on Taapsee yet again. She also openly challenged Taapsee to respond to her on Twitter right here, right now, instead of talking to the media about it.”Yeh Madam is attacking Kangana everyday,arrey bhai tune kya kiya hai for what we should praise you? 2 mins role in a film lead by Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan. Or playing character roles in Big B films or carrying same confused expression through all your film..”kaun sa praise?? Making nasty remarks about a great artist isn’t enough what is there to your credit, you arnt a kid you are also 32 years Kangana’s age, what have you achieved for what we should praise you??…”Look at all your interviews only one thing they call you for is to discuss Kangana Ranaut, don’t ask you any other question, show me one question which is about your work or achievements?”Don’t run to the media answer me here, please I am asking openly please respond openly not slyly,” Rangoli Chandel said in a series of tweets, which again proved Taapsee right about her views on the Ranaut sisters. And it looks like Taapsee has decided not to indulge with Rangoli in the mudslinging and give Kangana’s sister any importance.last_img read more
