Army Col. Carl Wojtaszek, who is in the office of manpower analysis, said a study last year showed that promotion boards, which can include between nine and 17 members, show differing results when photos of candidates are available. He said that when the photo is not included, the board members scores are more closely aligned, it took them less time to vote on each soldier and “the outcomes for minorities and women improved.”.
And it wasn really a case of sitting down to say, “Well, this is what we couldn do with the original so we definitely going to put that in now we have to do this because it wasn possible then.”It very much about how we handled the stuff that was in the original game. But of course, I think the visual part of it, in some ways the player had to fill it with their imagination. When it was convenient for the way that you presented games in those days, the way the storytelling happened.
“Without a doubt, Dampy has made a positive impact, not only in the Calgary South Asian Community but also major cities across Canada and into the Himalayas of India, where he has done work with the Indian national women’s hockey team,” said Toor of Brar, who’s also travelled to a college in Punjab, India, to mentor students of a roller hockey program. “Dampy is a true role model for the next generation of South Asian athletes from our community. Apna Hockey is very fortunate to have a person like Dampy leading the way.”.
By William JamesLONDON () Hong Kong pro democracy activist Nathan Law said on Wednesday he feels safe in London at the moment but described the extra territorial reach of national security laws imposed by China as “scary” and urged Britain to do more to help.Law, a former legislator, left Hong Kong earlier this month after China imposed a new national security law on the territory that has been heavily criticised by the West.He said he had agreed with fellow senior activists to come to London, where allies and a large Diaspora would help keep an international voice for their protest against Beijing.”I feel relatively safe here,” Law told British lawmakers in a webinar, describing how he had previously kept his location secret after receiving threats.The British flag was lowered over Hong Kong when the colony was handed back to China in 1997 after more than 150 years of British rule imposed after Britain defeated China in the First Opium War.Britain says the national security law breaches agreements made before the handover and that China is crushing the freedoms that have helped make Hong Kong one of the world’s biggest financial hubs.Hong Kong and Beijing officials have said the law is vital to plug holes in national security defences exposed by the protests. China has repeatedly told Western powers to stop meddling in Hong Kong’s affairs.Asked about the reach of the new security laws in Hong Kong, Law said it covered foreigners and their actions outside Hong Kong: “That is scary,” he added.He urged Britain to follow other countries and review its extradition arrangements with its former colony.Law also said he wanted Britain to consider extending its offer of a route to citizenship, which already applies to nearly three million Hong Kong citizens, to include something for younger people, especially pro democracy demonstrators.”We really welcome and appreciate the measures and we could still explore and look into more development on that in order to send a stronger signal,” he said. Environment chief said Wednesday that “time is running out” to avert an environmental, economic and humanitarian catastrophe from a deteriorating oil tanker loaded with 1.1 million barrels of crude oil that is moored off the coast of Yemen.
