Pistorius ‘must pay’ says Steenkamp’s father

first_imgReliving how his daughter, 29, died, he said: “What she must have gone through in those split seconds — she must have been in so much fear and pain. That is what I think of, all the time.”“It must have been absolutely awful.”He also said that he believed the couple had argued on the night of the murder — disputing Pistorius’s claims.Pistorius had his head in his hands and appeared to be sobbing during the testimony at the High Court in the South African capital Pretoria.Barry Steenkamp, a former racehorse trainer, described the chaos and panic when his wife June rang him at work early in the morning after Reeva was shot. “June grieves like I do all the time. I hear her at night, I hear her crying, I hear her talking to Reeva,” he said, adding that June had tried to forgive Pistorius to help her cope with the loss of her daughter.“You must still understand that he must pay for that although June has forgiven,” he said, adding that he might want to meet with Pistorius in the future in private.Murder termThe original trial judge Thokozile Masipa is expected to pass a new sentence for murder after hearing arguments from both prosecution and defence.The hearing — held in the same courtroom as the original trial — is scheduled to last until Friday.Pistorius faces a minimum 15-year jail term for murder, but his sentence could be reduced due to time already spent in prison and mitigating factors, including his disability.He was released from jail last October to live under house arrest at his uncle’s mansion in Pretoria after serving one year of his five-year sentence for culpable homicide.Pistorius has shunned the media during years of intense coverage since Steenkamp’s killing, but his family have revealed that he has given his first interview, due to air on British broadcaster ITV later this month.Pistorius has always denied killing Steenkamp in a rage and, during his dramatic seven-month trial in 2014, vomited in the dock as details of his lover’s death were examined in excruciating detail.The year before he killed Steenkamp, Pistorius became the first double-amputee to race at Olympic level when he appeared at the London 2012 games.  #Pistorius TweetsShare on: WhatsApp Reeva Steenkamp’s father broke down in court on Tuesday as he told a dramatic sentencing hearing that Oscar Pistorius must “pay for his crime” for murdering his daughter three years ago.The Paralympic athlete killed Reeva Steenkamp, a model and law graduate, in the early hours of Valentine’s Day in 2013, saying he mistook her for a burglar when he fired four times through the door of his bedroom toilet.In March, Pistorius’s lawyers failed to reverse an appeal judgement that upgraded his original conviction from culpable homicide — the equivalent of manslaughter — to murder.“It has been very difficult for me to forgive… I feel that Oscar has to pay for what he did. He has to pay for his crime,” Barry Steenkamp, 73, said shaking with emotion and in tears.last_img read more

Former Gateway, Pitt star Curtis Bray dies at 43

first_imgIowa State defensive line coach Curtis Bray, center, talks with players during drills at the Bergstrom Indoor Practice Facility in Ames, Iowa. (AP Photo/Ronnie Miller, Ames Tribune/File)AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State defensive line coach Curtis Bray died Wednesday, the team said. He was 43.Cyclones spokesman Mike Green confirmed Bray’s death to The Associated Press, but said no additional details were immediately available.“Curtis Bray was a dear friend to me and to all he ever came in contact with,” Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads said. “He was a trusted and loyal assistant coach who always put the kids and the team in front of his work. He was as genuine in his approach to relationships, coaching and life as anyone I have ever been associated with. We will miss him dearly.”Bray grew up in Monroeville, Pa. and became the first defensive player to be honored as the Gatorade national player of the year for Gateway High in 1987.Bray graduated from Pitt in 1992 after a stellar career as a linebacker for the Panthers. He also coached at Duquesne, Western Kentucky and Villanova and later worked with Rhoads at Pittsburgh, where Bray spent seven seasons.Bray was the linebackers coach when Rhoads was Pitt’s defensive coordinator. Bray followed Rhoads to Ames when he was named Iowa State’s head coach in 2009 after working on the staff at Temple.“Curtis made indelible contributions as both a player and assistant coach at Pitt. His competitive nature on the field was only surpassed by his kind and gentle demeanor off of it ,” the University of Pittsburgh athletic department said in a statement. “Our deepest sympathies go out to his family and many loved ones. While Curtis will be greatly missed, he will not be forgotten by the many people he touched at Pitt.”Bray spent the past five seasons working at Iowa State and was known for his work with the defensive ends. The Cyclones reached three bowls games during Bray’s time on the staff.“He was so much fun to be around,” Iowa State defensive end Cory Morrissey said. “He could joke around with you and make a tense situation better with his personality. I am really going to remember the way he coached me and the way he coached my position group.  I really didn’t know the defensive end position very well coming into Iowa State. I credit everything to coach Bray and his coaching skills.”Bray is survived by his wife, Heather, a daughter, Sydney, and a son, Colden Charles.last_img read more

RiverCenter Envisions Renewed Riverfront, Transit Village

first_imgBy Chris Rotolo |RED BANK –At Red Bank RiverCenter’s third strategic planning meeting, municipal planning consultant Bill Fontana revealed a draft of a vision statement local business owners and stakeholders hope will secure a bright future for the borough’s downtown business district.The one-sheet statement identified six transformative strategies to help Red Bank thrive over the next decade, but came coupled with a warning.“I will tell you, that is a lot (of strategies),” said Fontana, the executive director of the Harrisburg-based Pennsylvania Downtown Center, a nonprofit organization that provides revitalization help to downtown districts across the nation.“There are not a ton of towns that can take six strategies and really be effective in implementing all of them. I think that is a bit of a concern and something we need to talk to the Red Bank RiverCenter about,” said Fontana to the several dozen stakeholders who attended the meeting held at the Two River Theater.Despite his caution, Fontana said all six strategies were valid options for the borough to capitalize on.They include:A Reimagined and Reinvigorated Riverfront: The strategy aims to build upon the borough’s historic connection to the Navesink River – as well as its proximity to the Jersey Shore – by providing greater access to year-round active and passive activities on the water, as well the lush green space along the river’s bank, including the development of boating sites, riverfront dining and living options, and water-based recreation.A Regional Center for the Arts and Creativity: With the Count Basie and Two River theaters garnering so much attention and further support provided by art galleries, performance venues and live music settings, the borough has become one of the state’s most notable artistic hubs and could serve as a more accessible destination for artists of all mediums to find a home.A Place for Unique Dining and Shopping Experiences: Diversity in retail and dining options is key for the borough, which could expand on its offering of the latest fashions, finest jewelry, the best in home decor and an already storied antique district to provide an even more unique and immersive shopping and dining experience.An NJ Transit Village: Utilizing its historic and architecturally significant train station and surrounding structures and capitalizing on its proximity to New York City, the borough’s central business district could create roadways that are more friendly to pedestrians, bicyclists, commuters and motorists, appealing to those in search of a more residential living experience.A Center for Health and Wellness in Central New Jersey: With Riverview Medical Center positioned nearby, the borough could seek commercial, retail and experiential opportunities for those in search of well-being and good health, transforming Red Bank into a regional epicenter for health and wellness.A Center for Financial Services: The borough’s location near major centers of trade and commerce, as well as the significant disposable income of residents and patrons from surrounding communities, make Red Bank a viable candidate to become a dynamic hub for banking and financial services.The strategies were derived from a series of surveys and questionnaires that helped gauge the local perception of the borough.Fontana revealed the results of those community outreach efforts at Red Bank RiverCenter’s (RRRC) Aug. 13 strategic planning meeting, findings he said informed the creation of this vision statement draft, and spoke to the organization’s wishes to make the borough a destination for experiences.“I think what Jim (Scavone) and the folks on the Red Bank RiverCenter board were interested in was this whole idea about making Red Bank a center for experiences, whether those are art experiences, theater experiences, concerts, street fairs, escape rooms. These are all tactics and things that will happen as a result of buying into the vision statement,” Fontana said.Fontana said a full-scale commitment to the vision statement from business owners, stakeholders, borough officials and government leaders is the only way it will come to fruition.“I will tell you, unequivocally, the things that keep communities from attaining their vision are always, always, always organizational issues. It is rarely a question of money, because if you have a good plan, people will fund your effort. But if you fight over things and don’t have your act together, there just aren’t enough resources anymore to support initiatives if everyone isn’t rowing in the same direction,” Fontana added.Fontana said he’s confident interested parties could work together toward this common goal, a sentiment shared by RRRC executive director James Scavone, who cited the recent partnership between his organization and the Borough of Red Bank.According to Scavone, the entities will work together to complete a study on the municipality’s alarming parking situation, which was identified via survey and focus group discussion as a potential pitfall that could derail the RRRC vision.“I think over the past year we’ve definitely seen a shift in the relationship between the RiverCenter and some members of the borough and, more recently with this study, it’s become even more apparent,” Scavone said. “I think we’re in the right moment in time for this partnership to take fuller form and help effect some of the changes we talked about tonight.”RRRC will hold its final strategic planning meeting Monday, Oct. 15 following a Sept. 24 parking study meeting at the Red Bank middle school.This article was first published in the Sept. 13 – 19, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

Air Canada seeking bank credit card partner for new loyalty program

first_imgMONTREAL – Air Canada is seeking a credit card partner for its new loyalty program which it says will help improve the bond with passengers and drive increased profits.The Montreal-based airline says it is inviting key financial institutions to participate in a request for proposals to join the launch of the program on July 1, 2020.Air Canada (TSX:AC) served notice in May that it does not plan to renew its 30-plus year partnership with Aeroplan parent Aimia (TSX:AIM) when the current contract ends. However, it will continue to make Air Canada flights available for Aeroplan redemptions, as it does for other rewards programs.Operating its own loyalty program is expected to deliver a pre-tax net present value of $2 billion to $2.5 billion over 15 years.Air Canada CEO Calin Rovinescu told analysts at an investor day that the move is in line with other airlines that operate their own loyalty program.Aeroplan used to be a division of Air Canada before it was spun off during an IPO about a decade ago.With international travel the most popular reward, Air Canada said it can deliver what loyalty card members want through its extensive global network.“This makes us a highly desirable partner,” Rovinescu said.David Tyerman of Cormark Securities suspects that most banks will bid since Air Canada loyalty is a desirable opportunity.TD took over from CIBC as the primary card for Aeroplan, while RBC is a WestJet credit card partner.Ben Smith, president of passenger airlines at Air Canada, said the loyalty program will allow customers — especially its most frequent flyers — to earn and redeem miles with greater flexibility.“We’re committed to focusing on Air Canada’s customers every step of the way, leading to a loyalty program designed around them,” he said.Air Canada also introduced new, financial targets between 2018 and 2020, including $2 billion to $3 billion in cumulative free cash flow.“With several years of record results and profitability…we’re confident in saying that we are on the right trajectory towards a sustainably profitable and investable company with an improved cost structure, improved debt rating, strong free cash flow and great prospects for the future,” Rovinescu said.He also pointed to the 3,000 per cent increase in Air Canada’s share price since early 2009.Air Canada’s largest shareholder, Peter Letko, applauded the airline’s new financial targets but asked about implementation of a dividend. Rovinescu said it prefers to initially focus on reducing debt and buying back shares.The airline said a revised long-term deal with its pilots will allow it to expand the fleet of its low-cost Rouge leisure airline for use on regional routes, if required, to compete against ultra low-cost competitors. Canada Jetlines and WestJet (TSX:WJA) are planning to enter this market using secondary airports.“We can now fully optimize Rouge as our strategic tool we need to competitively address any new low cost threats we see in the industry or market,” Smith added.Air Canada also plans to introduce new fare brands to cater to the differing range of passengers from corporate customers to budget travellers.Meanwhile, in a veiled signal of support for Bombardier in its trade dispute with Boeing, Air Canada said it welcomes the delivery of new Boeing 747 Max later this year and C Series aircraft starting in 2019.“In our view, two great aircraft that will complement each other and that can and should co-exist within their respective competitive spaces,” said Rovinescu.Air Canada is also facing the prospect of a class action lawsuit over rules for its consumer flight passes.The suit filed last month argues that Air Canada ran afoul of Quebec consumer protection law by having expiry dates or fees associated with the program for buyers from around the world. The airline declined to comment about the effort to seek authorization to proceed as a class action.Air Canada also provided travel updates Tuesday for customers who may be impacted by hurricane Maria, which is on track to hit many of the same areas of the Caribbean that were devastated by hurricane Irma. Updates can be found on AirCanada.com.Note to readers: This is a corrected story. An earlier version said the relationship between Air Canada and Aimia is ending. In fact, the airline is not renewing its partnership but will continue to offer Aeroplan flight redemptions.last_img read more

Bank of Canada minimum wage job loss projection follows Conference Board prediction

first_imgThe Bank of Canada’s latest projection of how minimum wage increases in Alberta and Ontario will affect job losses comes as no surprise to the Conference Board of Canada’s director of provincial and territorial forecast service.“It’s in the same kind of range as what we expect,” Marie-Christine Bernard said after the bank’s latest report.The BOC’s “The Impacts of Minimum Wage Increases on the Canadian Economy” study stated while the net impact on labour income would be positive, there would be job losses.“The planned minimum wage increases would reduce national employment by about 60,000 jobs relative to otherwise by 2019,” the report said, while also looking at the effect on GDP.“Minimum wage increases would reduce the level of gross domestic product by roughly 0.1 per cent by early 2019 and boost CPI inflation by about 0.1 pp,” the report said.Bernard pointed out the board’s prediction was actually lower than the bank’s predicting a loss of around 50,000 jobs, with a vast majority coming in Ontario rather than Alberta.“We also have to consider where the minimum wage is compared to the median wage in the province,” she said. “In Ontario, it’s going to be substantially higher.“In Alberta not as much, because there’s less people earning minimum wage in Alberta.”Ontario raised its minimum wage to $14 per hour on Jan. 1 from $11.60 and plans to increase it to $15 in 2019, while Alberta is expected to raise its minimum wage to $15 later this year.Bernard said the losses would include both Canadians losing their current jobs, as well as planned positions that won’t go forward.“Maybe a business would’ve hired a worker and now they’re not,” she said.Both the bank and the board said the number of losses could be less than their projections, depending on how businesses react to the increases, for example by reducing the number of hours employees work.660 NEWS Business Editor Richard Southern said, however, he’s not convinced.“It’s not what we’ve seen in the past,” he said on Twitter. “Goldman Sachs analysis recently found that U.S states where the minimum wage went up had faster employment growth.”To read the full report, click here.last_img read more
