Norway says “Ja!” to self-driving vehicles on public roads next year

first_imgBreak the Mold with Real-World Logistics AI and… IT Trends of the Future That Are Worth Paying A… The Norwegian government might be the next to legalize self-driving cars on public roads, if a new bill under consultation is passed by parliament.Norway’s Ministry of Transport and Communication will look at the bill sent by the government and provide any amendments, before parliament votes on it.See Also: Scandinavia leaps ahead of everyone in IoT deployment“The objective of the bill is to facilitate the testing of self-driving vehicles on Norwegian roads,” said the government in a statement. It added that the bill should protect the integrity of personal information and abide with current traffic safety laws.Norway will make automakers and tech firms apply to test self-driving vehicles on public roads, and only mature systems will be granted access. The statement also suggests that full autonomy will not be allowed on public roads, at least in 2017.Norway has been laggingThe Nordic country is a bit behind the curve, with several European countries legalizing self-driving in some form. That said, the climate of Norway may be enticing for firms that want to test cars in very cold temperatures with lots of snow.The government may also be doing a favor for one of its major international firms, Tesla. The Model S has been a favorite amongst Norwegians, and Tesla may look to set a permanent outpost in the country to make sure its cars work when self-driving is enabled.According to Reuters, the Norwegian government might be looking at this as an opportunity to diversify its economy, which has struggled since the fall in oil price. Becoming a place to test autonomous vehicles could bring more jobs to the country too.

New Brunswick man charged with production of child pornography in United States

first_imgA 49-year-old New Brunswick man who allegedly travelled to Ohio to meet a teenage girl is facing a charge of production of child pornography in the United States.Joseph Haggerty of St. Stephen, N.B., was arrested last Thursday, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in northern Ohio.“This case is another stark reminder to parents that they need to know who their children are communicating with on social media and in real life,” acting U.S. Attorney David Sierleja said in the release.Officials said agents with Homeland Security Investigations in Austin, Texas, received a tip that Haggerty had been soliciting nude images from children.They said he was scheduled to fly from Toronto to Cleveland last Thursday, and upon his arrival, agents followed him to Linden Park in the suburb of Rocky River, where he allegedly met with a 17-year-old girl.The girl told agents she started talking to Haggerty on a messaging app last December and they subsequently engaged in hours-long Skype chats, in which the accused would allegedly direct her conduct, the release said.It said the girl told relatives she was going on a camping trip for the weekend, but actually planned to go to the Lakewood hotel with Haggerty.Homeland Security Investigations contacted the RCMP’S internet child exploitation unit, who executed a search warrant at Haggerty’s St. Stephen home and found nude images of the minor as well as evidence of an estimated five other potential victims, it said.“This defendant victimized at least one child and possibly many more,” Sierleja alleged of the accused.U.S. Attorney’s Office spokesman Mike Tobin said Haggerty remained in custody Friday after waiving his right to a detention hearing Monday.last_img read more

Iqaluit Researcher says mining executives struck back for MMIWG testimony

first_imgKent DriscollAPTN NewsTJ Lightfoot knew there would be consequences for testifying at the MMIWG hearings in Iqaluit.What no one could have predicted was just how far Nunavut’s Chamber of Mines was allegedly willing to go in defending its industry.“Afterwards, those mining companies specifically attacked me. They tried to have me fired,” alleged Lightfoot.“That affirms that I must have said something that struck a nerve with them, they felt vulnerable.”Lightfoot’s testimony in September 2018 included a section on man camps – worker camps mostly made up of men in small Indigenous communities – and the MMIWG inquiry ended up with a section on those camps and how they can put women at risk.“Basically, the things that I said, were quoted and reinforced in the end. Those points are the ones I received the most criticism for. So it is good in a way, because I feel like I’ve been, not vindicated, but that there was a purpose to all this,” said Lightfoot.In a letter to Nunavut newspaper Nunatsiaq News shortly after Lightfoot’s testimony, Nunavut Chamber of Mines Vice-President Alex Buchan tried to discredit Lightfoot and promote his industry as good for the women of Nunavut.His comments included, “Lightfoot is not an expert on mining in Nunavut,” the comment said. “To our knowledge, not one woman or girl has been abducted by any of our employees,” and “As publicized as some incidents may be, the fact remains: women are an order of magnitude safer at our mines than at home. This fact was missing from Lightfoot’s testimony.”The NWT and Nunavut Chamber of Mines also contacted Lightfoot’s employer at the time, Nunavut Health, to express “regret that one of his staff members would have provided that sort of testimony, without looking into our operating practices here in the territory,” Buchan told APTN News.Lightfoot has been based in Iqaluit for years, but is from Elsipotog First Nation in New Brunswick.As a researcher specializing in sexual health and environmental violence, Lightfoot was called to testify as a witness.As an academic, Lightfoot was ready to argue facts, this wasn’t what they signed up for.“The personal attacks, was not what I was prepared for. There’s a difference between attacking someone’s sources. I mean, if you agree with mining, that’s fine. Go ahead and criticize all you want. But when it comes to a personal attack, it basically reinforced what I was saying about the gas lighting, the violence LGBQ2 people experience especially, especially indigenous women,” explained Lightfoot from their Iqaluit home.When the testimony happened, critics picked the part they thought they could argue against, and focused on it, ignoring the rest of the testimony.Read More:Inuk woman says she is being harassed at Nunavut mine siteAccording to Lightfoot, the same thing is happening now, with the national focus on the MMIWG Inquiry’s use of the word genocide in their final report.Lightfoot also used the word genocide when testifying at the hearing.“You can say it’s not [genocide] all you want, but if you look at what the definition is, it’s undeniable, it is absolutely part of it,” said Lightfoot.kdr[email protected]@kentdriscolllast_img read more
