SHEDIAC • Nadine Duguay-Lemay said the "Me too" movement helped her stop being ashamed and find the courage to share her story of domestic abuse. "My mom was a victim of spousal abuse and even though I don't have much memory of it, I have seen the long-lasting impact it has had on her," said Duguay-Lemay, CEO of Dialogue N.B. "I myself have been the victim of sexual abuse numerous times in my life and only started recently to be open about it." Duguay-Lemay was speaking at an International Women's Day event in Shediac to discuss the challenges faced by women, and the Beausejour Family Crisis Resource Centre, during the pandemic. It was the first in-person event of its kind in months because of pandemic restrictions. Duguay-Lemay told the Times & Transcript that while she may have looked confident while speaking, she was shaking internally. "I'm doing it for my mom so we break the cycle of intergenerational trauma," she said. Duguay-Lemay, who grew up in Tracadie, also spoke about the taboo of talking about domestic abuse, especially in smaller communities like those along the Acadian cost. "In smaller communities everyone knows one another, so it's easier to get marginalized," she said, noting she received unwelcome comments just about the fact her mother was divorced, so to talk about domestic violence seemed that much harder. "At eight years old I was already understanding I was supposed to be ashamed," she said. Duguay-Lemay said she was a victim of sexual violence in her teens and early adulthood on more than one occasion, and thought that it was her fault, that she had somehow been attracting it. "It's easier for me to talk to strangers about it than peers or friends from back home," she said, noting that the more we talk about the issue, the more resources available, the better we can address the issue going forward. During the pandemic, women have been disproportionately impacted by mental health issues and increases in family violence, said Lieutenant Governor Brenda Murphy, speaking via Zoom to the politicians, staff and social service-providers gathered in Shediac for the event. "It was extremely difficult for women who were victims of domestic violence to reach out," said Lise Cormier, president of the board of the Beauséjour centre. Early in the pandemic, crisis centres were getting lower than normal calls - a real cause for concern, Cormier said, noting women were staying in dangerous situations because in many cases their abuser was monitoring their every move including their devices, so they couldn't reach out for help. Abusers have used the threat of the virus in chilling ways to control their victims, she said. In one case, an abuser told his partner that he would purposely try to contract COVID-19 to pass it on to her children if she didn't do what he wanted. The severity of violence has also dramatically increased, Cormier said, pointing to increases in isolation, limited access to outside support and increased sexual violence, all further compounding an issue that was already significant in the province. New Brunswick has the highest rate of murder by a domestic partner in Atlantic Canada, she said. The event was also the launch for the 2021 Run for Women, a fundraising event in support of the resource centre. Duguay-Lemay is calling on politicians to take action. Long-term systemic change is needed to ensure organizations have the funding they need to do this work, she said. "The work the Beausejour is doing is really saving lives," said Ginette Petitpas Taylor, MP for Moncton-Riverview-Dieppe and a social worker before becoming a politician. Jacques LeBlanc, MLA for Shediac-Beaubassin-Cap-Pelé, said he is sometimes contacted by people in need of support he can't offer himself, but is grateful to be able to point them to Beausejour. He emphasized the need for men to support resources like this. "They [Beausejour] are helping people in their time of need, at times when you can't fathom the situations they are going through," said Shediac Mayor Roger Caissie.

OTTAWA — Independent MP Yasmin Ratansi is being ordered to repay the House of Commons money given to her sister after she lost her job in Ratansi's Toronto riding office. Ratansi left the Liberal caucus in November after admitting she had employed her sister as a constituency assistant in her riding of Don Valley East, saying she "made an error." The board of internal economy, the all-party body that sets spending guidelines for MPs, reviewed the matter and said Monday that it decided last month that Ratansi had broken the rules. The board ordered Ratansi to repay nearly $9,400 in termination and severance pay given to her sister once her employment in the constituency office was ended. Speaker Anthony Rota, who chairs the board, said in a statement that Ratansi was given chances to state her case but did not co-operate during the review. However, Ratansi said she was surprised that the board ruled on her case while it is still being reviewed by the federal ethics commissioner. "In the past, (the board) has neither interfered nor duplicated the efforts of the independent investigation by the Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner," she said in a statement. "I had requested that the same courtesy be extended to me as it had to other parliamentarians in similar situation. It is not a lack of collaboration or co-operation but seeking fairness and a due and respectful process." Ratansi has represented the Ontario riding since 2015 and previously held the riding from 2004 to 2011. This report by The Canadian Press was first published March 8, 2021. The Canadian Press

Yuhang Liu was 13 hours ahead of his classmates, but he couldn’t keep up with them. It was mid-October and Liu’s collection of empty energy drink cans in his bedroom — which, ever since he had flown home to Hong Kong during the initial COVID-19 lockdown in Winnipeg, had also turned into a lecture hall and library — had become a constant reminder of how sleep-deprived he was. “It was like life-support in the middle of the night,” recalls Liu, a third-year sociology student at the University of Winnipeg, about Monster Energy’s original pick-me-up. From concerns of excessive screen-time to exam-monitoring software issues, post-secondary students have faced no shortage of challenges with remote learning over the last year. For many international students learning from home, time zones have only caused further confusion. Liu admits he was overly optimistic about his ability to manage a full course load in a different time zone than his instructors when he planned his schedule; tuning into synchronous lectures at 2:30 a.m. Hong Kong time proved to be extremely difficult even for a self-described night owl. As soon as Ottawa announced eligible international students would be exempt from a pandemic travel ban halfway through his fall term, the 20-year-old booked a trip back to Canada’s Central time zone. Since then, Canada has implemented new guidelines that require travellers to have a recent negative COVID-19 test upon entering the country, get tested upon arrival and quarantine in a hotel for three days until results are in, and then take another test on the tenth day of self-isolation. Given the price tag of a return and uncertainty around in-person classes resuming, Kazi Ashique Mohammad remains in limbo — located in Bangladesh standard time, with a sleep schedule adjusted around Winnipeg time, 12 hours behind his family members’ schedules. The University of Manitoba business student went home in early December when he learned his father had tested positive for COVID-19 and had to be hospitalized. Mohammad took his remote exams in the middle of the night, which he said required willpower not to either fall asleep or cry of frustration. He set up three internet hotspots to ensure his poor internet connection didn’t falter and affect the exam-proctoring software he was required to run. “When this is all over and I look back at this moment, I will not hold any regret. I would just be proud of myself that I coped with the situation,” said Mohammad, 22, during a call amid a study break around 3 a.m. in Dhaka. International student hubs at both the U of W and U of M have reported time zones and internet connectivity as the top issues facing their populations doing coursework in other parts of the world this year. Even still, both schools have recorded overall increases in international enrolment — by 11 and six per cent, respectively. Ashley Dunlop, director of international, immigrant and refugee student services at U of W, said she was pleasantly surprised by the increase, given the pandemic disruptions: “It speaks to how driven these students are to achieve their goals.” Asynchronous courses and compassionate grading are both in place to support students in different time zones, Dunlop added. In Oman, which is 10 hours ahead of U of M time, Ishaanee Didwania starts her school day around 8:30 p.m. and goes to sleep around 2 a.m. The 22-year-old student took as many early and asynchronous classes as possible this term. Daylight savings and Oman’s different weekends (Fridays and Saturdays) have proven challenging, she said, but she’s now in a rhythm. “I do sometimes feel I’m missing out because I’m missing out on live lectures and can’t participate in discussion questions,” she said from Oman, “but at least I can still get an education.” Maggie Macintosh, Local Journalism Initiative Reporter, Winnipeg Free Press
BOSTON — Victims of a massive global hack of Microsoft email server software — estimated in the tens of thousands by cybersecurity responders — hustled Monday to shore up infected systems and try to diminish chances that intruders might steal data or hobble their networks. The White House has called the hack an “active threat” and said senior national security officials were addressing it. The breach was discovered in early January and attributed to Chinese cyber spies targeting U.S. policy think tanks. Then in late February, five days before Microsoft issued a patch on March 2, there was an explosion of infiltrations by other intruders, piggybacking on the initial breach. Victims run the spectrum of organizations that run email servers, from mom-and-pop retailers to law firms, municipal governments, healthcare providers and manufacturers. While the hack doesn’t pose the kind of national security threat as the more sophisticated SolarWinds campaign, which the Biden administration blames on Russian intelligence officers, it can be an existential threat for victims who didn't install the patch in time and now have hackers lingering in their systems. The hack poses a new challenge for the White House, which even as it prepares to respond to the SolarWinds breach, must now grapple with a formidable and very different threat from China. “I would say it’s a serious economic security threat because so many small companies out there can literally have their business destroyed through a targeted ransomware attack,” said Dmitri Alperovitch, former chief technical officer of the cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike. He blames China for the global wave of infections that began Feb. 26, though other researchers say it's too early to confidently attribute them. It's a mystery how those hackers got wind of the initial breach because no one knew about this except a few researchers, Alperovitch said. After the patch was released, a third wave of infections began, a piling on that typically occurs in such cases because Microsoft dominates the software market and offers a single point of attack. Cybersecurity analysts trying to pull together a complete picture of the hack said their analyses concur with the figure of 30,000 U.S. victims published Friday by cybersecurity blogger Brian Krebs. Alperovitch said about 250,000 global victims has been estimated. Microsoft has declined to say how many customers it believes are infected. David Kennedy, CEO of cybersecurity firm TrustedSec, said hundreds of thousands of organizations could have been vulnerable to the hack. “Anybody that had Exchange installed was potentially vulnerable,” he said. “It’s not every single one but it’s a large percentage of them.” Katie Nickels, director of intelligence at the cybersecurity firm Red Canary, warned that installing patches won't be enough to protect those already infected. “If you patch today that is going to protect you going forward but if the adversaries are already in your system then you need to take care of that,” she said. A smaller number of organizations were targeted in the initial intrusion by hackers who grabbed data, stole credentials or explored inside networks and left backdoors at universities, defence contractors, law firms and infectious-disease research centres, researchers said. Among those Kennedy has been working with are manufacturers worried about intellectual property theft, hospitals, financial institutions and managed service providers who host multiple company networks. “On the scale of one to 10, this is a 20,” Kennedy said. “It was essentially a skeleton key to open up any company that had this Microsoft product installed.” Asked for comment, the Chinese embassy in Washington pointed to remarks last week from Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin saying that China “firmly opposes and combats cyber attacks and cyber theft in all forms” and cautioning that attribution of cyberattacks should be based on evidence and not “groundless accusations.” The hack did not affect the cloud-based Microsoft 365 email and collaboration systems favoured by Fortune 500 companies and other organizations that can afford quality security. That highlights what some in the industry lament as two computing classes — the security “haves” and “have-nots.” Ben Read, director of analysis at Mandiant, said the cybersecurity firm has not seen anyone leverage the hack for financial gain, “but for folks out there who are affected time is of the essence in terms of of patching this issue.” That is easier said than done for many victims. Many have skeleton IT staff and can’t afford an emergency cybersecurity response — not to mention the complications of the pandemic. Fixing the problem isn’t as simple as clicking an update button on a computer screen. It requires upgrading an organization’s entire so-called “Active Directory,” which catalogues email users and their respective privileges. “Taking down your email server is not something you do lightly,” said Alperovitch, who chairs the non-profit Silverado Policy Accelerator think-tank . Tony Cole of Attivo Networks said the huge number of potential victims creates a perfect “smokescreen” for nation-state hackers to hide a much smaller list of intended targets by tying up already overstretched cybersecurity officials. “There’s not enough incident response teams to handle all of this.” Many experts were surprised and perplexed at how groups rushed to infect server installations just ahead of Microsoft’s patch release. Kennedy, of TrustedSec, said it took Microsoft too long to get a patch out, though he does not think it should have notified people about it before the patch was ready. Steven Adair of the cybersecurity firm Volexity, which alerted Microsoft to the initial intrusion, described a “mass, indiscriminate exploitation” that began the weekend before the patch was released and included groups from “many different countries, (including) criminal actors.” The Cybersecurity Infrastructure and Security Agency issued an urgent alert on the hack last Wednesday and National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan tweeted about it Thursday evening. But the White House has yet to announce any specific initiative for responding. ___ Tucker reported from Washington and O'Brien reported from Providence, Rhode Island.

Five women in New Brunswick have been honoured with the inaugural Minister's Award for Excellence in Championing Gender Equality. The VIVE awards, created to promote gender equality in workplaces, daily life and in government, recognize those who are forging paths and advancing gender equality, the province stated in announcing the winners. “Women are our pride, our hope, our future, and the recovery that will carry us through this pandemic,” said Tourism, Heritage and Culture Minister Tammy Scott-Wallace, who is also the minister responsible for women’s equality. “We are thrilled to spotlight some of New Brunswick’s outstanding unsung heroes.” The winners were named in five categories: Community, Youth, Business, Everyday and Government. This year’s winners are: • Community Champion: Johanne Perron of Moncton is the longtime executive director of the New Brunswick Coalition for Pay Equity.

YANGON, Myanmar — Demonstrators in Myanmar’s biggest city came out Monday night for their first mass protests in defiance of an 8 p.m. curfew, seeking to show support for an estimated 200 students trapped by security forces in a small area of one neighbourhood. The students and other civilians earlier took part in one of the many daily protests across the country against the military’s seizure of power last month that ousted the elected government of Aung San Suu Kyi. The military government also placed a major curb on media coverage of the crisis. It announced that the licenses of five local media outlets — Mizzima, DVB, Khit Thit Media, Myanmar Now and 7Day News — have been cancelled. “These media companies are no longer allowed to broadcast or write or give information by using any kind of media platform or using any media technology,” it said on state broadcaster MRTV. All five had been offering extensive coverage of the protests, often with livestreaming video online. The offices of Myanmar Now were raided by the authorities Monday before the measure was announced. DVB said it was not surprised by the cancellation and would continue broadcasting on satellite TV and online. “We worry for the safety of our reporters and our staff, but in the current uprising, the whole country has become the citizens’ journalists and there is no way for military authorities to shut the information flow," Executive Director Aye Chan Naing told The Associated Press. The government has detained dozens of journalists since the coup, including a Myanmar Now reporter and Thein Zaw of AP, both of whom have been charged under a public order law that carried a penalty of up to three years in prison. The night's street protests began after police cordoned off part of Yangon’s Sanchaung neighbourhood and were believed to be conducting door-to-door searches for those who fled attacks by security forces to seek shelter in the homes of sympathetic strangers. News of their plight spread quickly on social media, and people poured into the streets in neighbourhoods all over the city to show solidarity and in hopes of drawing some of the pressure off the hunted protesters. On some streets, they constructed makeshift barricades with whatever was at hand. In the Insein district, they spread across road junctions, singing songs, chanting pro-democracy slogans and banging objects together. The diplomatic missions of the United States, Britain, Canada and the European Union all issued statements urging the security forces to allow the trapped people to return safely to their homes. Although all have been sharply critical of the Feb. 1 coup and police violence, it is unusual for such diplomatic statements to be issued in connection with a specific, ongoing incident. “There is heightened tension caused by security forces surrounding Kyun Taw Road in Sanchaung Township, Yangon. We call on those security forces to withdraw and allow people to go home safely,” said the U.S. Embassy's statement. By midnight Myanmar time, there had been no reports of clashes between police and protesters, although security forces chased crowds, harassed residents watching from windows, and fired stun grenades. They also were some reports of injuries from rubber bullets. U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres is following developments in the Sanchaung district where “many of those trapped are women, who were peacefully marching in commemoration of International Women’s Day,” U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said. “He calls for maximum restraint and urges for the safe release of all without violence or arrests,” Dujarric said, and for respect of the rights to freedom of assembly and expression for peaceful demonstrators voicing “their hopes and desires for the future of their country." Guterres also called the occupation of a number of public hospitals in Myanmar by security forces “completely unacceptable,” the U.N. spokesman said. The nighttime hours have become increasingly dangerous in Myanmar. Police and army units routinely range through neighbourhoods, shooting randomly to intimidate residents and disrupt their sleep, and making targeted arrests. Security forces shot and killed two people in northern Myanmar during the day, local media reported. The Irrawaddy online newspaper said the victims were shot in the head during anti-coup protests in Myitkyina in Kachin State. Graphic video on social media showed protesters backing away from tear gas, responding with rocks and then fleeing after a fusillade of what seemed to be automatic gunfire. Demonstrators hurriedly carried away the injured, including one apparent fatality, a person with a severe head wound. A second body was seen later on a stretcher, his head covered with a cloth. Another shooting death took place in Pyapon, a city about 120 kilometres (75 miles) south of Yangon. To date, the government's violent crackdown has left more than 50 protesters dead. At least 18 people were fatally shot Feb. 28 and 38 on Wednesday, according to the U.N. Human Rights Office. Security forces also clamped down on anti-coup protesters elsewhere Monday, firing tear gas to break up a crowd of about 1,000 people demonstrating in Pyinmana, a satellite town of the capital, Naypyitaw. The protesters deployed fire extinguishers to create a smokescreen as they fled from authorities. Thousands of protesters who marched in Mandalay, the second-largest city, dispersed on their own amid fears that soldiers and police were planning to break up their demonstration with force. Meanwhile, an armed force from one of Myanmar’s ethnic groups was deployed to protect anti-coup marchers in the wake of a brutal crackdown by the junta. The unit from the Karen National Police Force arrived shortly after dawn to accompany about 2,000 protesters near Myitta in Tanintharyi Region in southeastern Myanmar. They carried an assortment of firearms including assault rifles as they marched ahead of the column down dusty rural roads. The Karen police force is under the control of the Karen National Union, one of many ethnic organizations that have been fighting for greater autonomy from the central government for decades. The KNU employs both political and, through its armed wing, military means to achieve its aims. Large-scale protests have occurred daily in many cities and towns since Myanmar’s military seized power, and security forces have responded with ever greater use of lethal force and mass arrests. On Sunday, police occupied hospitals and universities and reportedly arrested hundreds of people involved in protesting the military takeover. The Associated Press

One analyst known for his accurate predictions of Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) product developments has made a bold new forecast. Ming-Chi Kuo of TF International wrote in a research note distributed on Monday that Apple will release a mixed-reality (MR) headset by the middle of 2022. MR is basically one step up from augmented reality (AR), the difference being that the former more seamlessly incorporates real-world elements into the artificial environment.
Washington placed the franchise tag on Brandon Scherff on Monday, tagging the standout guard for a second consecutive year in the aftermath of his first All-Pro season. Scherff stands to make almost $18 million after his camp and the team were unable to negotiate a long-term contract. His franchise tag was worth just under $15 million last season. The 29-year-old started 13 games at right guard for Washington when it reached the playoffs for the first time since 2015, Scherff’s rookie year after being drafted fifth overall. Scherff has started 78 games in his NFL career while battling through injuries. “I love it here,” Scherff said on locker cleanout day. “I’m just looking forward to the off-season and hopefully I can sign my name to stay here.” Keeping Scherff is a major step toward continuity on the offensive line. Washington re-signed centre Chase Roullier to a four-year extension in January. ___ More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL Stephen Whyno, The Associated Press
In a development that sounds more like the action of a supervillain in a science-fiction movie than a corporate asset-building move, Tesla Motors (NASDAQ: TSLA) is constructing a giant battery in Texas. According to Bloomberg, which broke the story, a subsidiary of the Elon Musk-fronted electric vehicle (EV) company called Gambit Energy Storage is managing the project. It will be connected to the state's electric grid, which notoriously came close to shutting down entirely last month.
