The report says officials with the Department of Children, Seniors and Social Development (CSSD) became involved a month later, after multiple protection referrals, including one that alleged the stepfather had physically abused the 12-year-old and one of her siblings.
The report said the family lived in Newfoundland and Labrador for about five months before later moving to another province, where the girl told authorities two years later that she had repeatedly been sexually assaulted by her stepfather over a period of 26 months, resulting in two abortions.
At the same time, research by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety raises concern that drivers may be less vigilant when relying on automated safety systems or become distracted by dashboard displays that monitor how the systems are performing.
Safety systems to prevent cars from drifting into another lane or that warn drivers of vehicles in their blind spots are beginning to live up to their potential to significantly reduce crashes, according to two studies released Wednesday.
Dr Kavanagh said BAS hoped to get this equipment back up and running soon, adding that there was a plan for the future which would allow instruments to be operated remotely should Halley have to shut down again.
He said: "EISCAT_3D will give us a 3D picture of interactions between space weather and our upper atmosphere with a detail we've not seen before, giving us answers to questions researchers have about the impacts of space weather on the upper atmosphere. "We need this information to reduce the risks posed by space weather on our communications systems, satellites and power grids, which we all rely on."
The immigration adjudication system should operate as a means of sorting out cases under the law, granting the right to remain where merited, rather than simply part of a deportation machine.
Nor does the proposal slow docket growth, because individuals in expedited removal can seek court intervention to present asylum claims and will likely do so if otherwise faced with immediate deportation. Impeding access to a full adjudication will certainly not promote more fair and accurate results, and the plan does nothing to address the existing backlog in the immigration courts.
The buses are old-fashioned and unsafe (they malfunction; bus doors are broken and always open, so it’s easy for passengers to fall out of the bus).
Though some readers have told us they love the ease of moving around by Metro — though not the expense — many locals seem to disagree.
Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 were to use the gravity of the outer planets to slingshot from Jupiter to Saturn, and to Uranus and Neptune, and then beyond the edge of the sun’s domain into interstellar space.
It was 40 years ago, on Aug. 20 and Sept. 5, 1977, that a pair of robots named Voyager were dispatched to explore the outer solar system and the vast darkness beyond. What resulted was nothing less than a reimagining of what a world might be and what strange cribs of geology and chemistry might give rise to life in some form or other.
Child welfare authorities and police received more than 300 reports of suspicious conduct by Montgomery County school employees during the most recent school year, down nearly 9 percent from the year before, according to data from a new report.
School officials described the 8.6 percent dip as a sign of growing awareness and understanding of child abuse and neglect among the district’s 23,400 employees.
Other projects that are up for the award include the US36 Express Lanes in Colorado and Kentucky’s Southern Indiana Ohio River Bridges project, which replaced two aging interstate bridges with a dramatically improved new bridge that has reduced congestion and improved safety.
Their Active Traffic Management System, (ATMS) aimed at unsnarling the backups on I-66, is one of 12 projects to reach this year’s finals.
On the ground floor of a deteriorating county courthouse, in a room outfitted with temporary office furniture and tangles of electrical wires, a cornerstone of America’s criminal justice system is crumbling.
The movement is part of a much broader effort to end abuses across the criminal justice system, from biased policing to burdensome court fees to mandatory minimum prison sentences. Philanthropic organizations are funding projects in more than three-dozen states to eliminate bail and adopt algorithm-based risk-assessment tools.
Canadian diplomatic staff in the US have been trying to "aggressively dispel the myths" about coming to Canada circulating south of the border, including that residency is guaranteed, said Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen.
Canadian officials are trying to counteract the spread of misinformation online about the openness of Canada's asylum system. The majority are crossing into Quebec, where migrant numbers more than tripled between June and July to 2,996 from 781.
It has taken the current crisis — with signal problems accounting for about 13 percent of overall subway delays — for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which operates the subway, to make upgrading the signals a priority.
Having taken a year off from school to save for college, major problems on the 7 can quickly become major problems to her savings plan.
