Ontario’s premier, Kathleen Wynne, announced on Monday details of her basic income pilot program, the first in North America in decades. The province of Ontario will start its pilot project testing universal basic income in three Canadian cities this summer, premier Kathleen Wynne announced on Monday. About 4,000 residents of Hamilton, Thunder Bay, and Lindsay will be randomly selected to take part in the three-year program. One group will start receiving funds this summer—as much as $12,570 annually for individuals—while the other will be part of the control group, and not receive any money. Researchers will track the program's impact on the economy, public health, education, and housing. It's not an extravagant sum by any means, Wynne said. But our goal is clear. We want to find out whether a basic income makes a positive difference in people's lives.

Vaughn Highfield 6 min 24 sec ago Games Sometimes there’s no greater pleasure in life than utterly destroying things with your own hands. Perhaps that says a lot more about me than I’d care to believeStill, the very act of toppling dominoes, crushing sand castles underfoot, or punching through a Barbie Dream house is just a pleasure I can’t get enough of. It’s not every day I actually get to don the Blood Raven Space Marine’s weapon of choice but, in an effort to promote Dawn of War III , Sega invited me down for a chance to really feel the power an inter-stellar army has at its disposal. Weighing over 10kg, with 6 kilograms of that resting in the CNC-milled aerospace-grade aluminium knuckles, this punching machine is an absolute beast. Using two air canisters, the Power Fist can deliver 3,000 PSI of impact alongside my already impressive right hook*.

The Times adds: "The seriousness of the fraud is exacerbated because 86 per cent of the suspicious goods are immediately re-exported to the continent, usually by 'shadow companies' that disappear without paying VAT.

According to HMRC, Olaf's figures were not recognised by its experts. It added it is handling hundreds of cases related to potential fraud. UK News UK business

So this is very early for me. I'm listening, I'm learning, I'm defining the ways in which I think I'll be able to have impact. I am seeking the counsel to use your word of informed and thoughtful women and men and I'm really striving to think about how best to empower women in the economy, both domestically and across the globe, because it's all interrelated.
