Nova Scotia College of Nurses is the regulator for #Nursing profession in the Province of Nova Scotia, #Canada and in coming weeks will be rolling out another 'first-in-Canada' Nursing Registration and Licensure Process - #CanadaNurses
It is in public knowledge that registration and licensure for Internationally Educated Nurses IENs in Canada is a tedious and difficult process with several bottlenecks.
This has led some provinces to start rethinking the process and find a way to streamline it so that it becomes seamless for applicants. Also, to ensure that IENs in Canada can function to the full extent of their education and competencies.

Oh also, climate catastrophe is imminent. Image
Confused as to why the Daily Mail would put this on page 19?

It's owned by a billionaire called Jonathan Harmsworth, aka Lord Rothermere, whose great-grandfather founded it and was pals with Adolf Hitler and other fascists. Image
He is a 'non-domicile' – meaning he avoids paying his fair share of tax in the UK. And his paper has a long track record of spreading lies and misinformation on the climate crisis.

Even as people died from 40°C heat last summer, his paper tried to play it down as a sunny day. Image

Hoy viajé a la provincia de Ciego de Ávila para visitar la mayor planta bioeléctrica de #Cuba 🇨🇺, que tiene participación de empresas de China 🇨🇳 y el Reino Unido 🇬🇧.

Fue maravilloso ver a tres países cooperando en un modelo de negocio circular en el que todos ganan. ImageImageImageImage

La energía limpia se crea a partir de la biomasa del arbusto de marabú.
Durante el periodo de zafra también se utiliza el residuo de la producción azucarera, conocido como bagazo.

Este proceso genera la electricidad ⚡️del central Ciro Redondo, suma energía a la red nacional fuera de la temporada azucarera y, además, limpia las tierras de marabú para que se puedan utilizar en el cultivo de la caña.

Distract and divert: How Tony Blair screens his role in Iraq War

20 years on, #Blair lashes out at #Putin to divert public attention from the atrocities he was behind in #Iraq, not to mention his role in the #Afghanistan war.
This month, twenty years ago, the #UnitedStates initiated a large military invasion of #Iraq alongside its ally, the #UK, without a @UN mandate and in defiance of some of the biggest demonstrations ever seen in Britain.
It was the start of an eight-year occupation that resulted in the deaths of more than one million Iraqi.

Erdogan´s move to only ratify #Finland goes against the wish of those 28 allies who have already ratified both Sweden and Finland – together, as it was intended. Turkey creates a wedge in #NATO that mainly serves the interest of Russia. A thread👇…
1/5 Russia benefits from a fragmented and unfulfilled security architecture in Europe. Hungary, also with close ties to Russia, will follow suite and only ratify Finland.
2/5 Sweden’s status as an invitee means that defense and political integration into NATO is ongoing. Noteworthy, Turkey is not blocking it. In addition, several allies have already given bilateral security assurances. Hence, in the short term, the decoupling is less worrisome.

There's been criticism of the detail (esp re #Poland, which has already delivered Leos) - but @JeremyCliffe's main point is right.
▶️I'd actually take it further (it's not about #Germany but about #Ukraine), which is why we need to talk about #Finland🧵…
I've repeatedly praised #Finland's approach to standing up #Russia & have written on its own #Zeitenwende in joining #NATO.
I've also repeatedly praised @MarinSanna as a figurehead of #NeoIdealism - who's been wonderfully clear on how & why #Ukraine must win & RU must lose
So, to be clear, this is not a general critique of🇫🇮or '🇫🇮 bashing'!
- BUT on the tank issue, I think #Finland has got it wrong.
- According to public info they have agreed to send
3 Patria Leopard2R heavy mine breaching tanks
-But NO #Leopard2 MBTs…

To the @SECGov staff who know that crypto assets and services, by their very nature, can’t comply w/ existing securities regs, but feel they have no choice but to bring enforcement actions under existing law: there is a better way.
In the ‘90s, Congress gave the SEC broad authority to exempt entire classes of securities from the federal securities laws. And the SEC has used it. In 2004, asset-backed securities – securities backed by things like mortgages – were new, but had quickly grown to a $416B market.
After years of ABS no-action letters and feedback to ABS issuers on their registration applications, the SEC finally recognized that a new set of rules was needed - the existing ones simply didn't work given ABS' unique features.
