Head of Kootenay Christian Martial Arts School reaches Sixth Dan Black Belt level

first_imgAccording to World Taekwondo Federation statistics, there are only 130 – 6th Dan in Canada out of 42,831 registered black belts.GM Brenda Sell and GM Melanie Wyatt of the UCDKA headed the exam.Siminoff, head of the Kootenay Christian Martial Arts School in Nelson and Crescent Valley, also had an opportunity to compete as the USCDKA held its National Championships.”There were schools from all over the USA and just a hand full from Canada,” Siminoff explained.”In this division I competed in continuous free spar and came out with gold,” he added.This is an exciting time for Siminoff and his KCMA School. The Nelson-based training facility is moving to a new location near the Nelson Airport beside Nelson Home Building Centre.Siminoff has also been instrumental in founding a local-based Martial Arts For Justice chapter in the area.”Martial Arts For Justice is a non-profit organization dedicated to uniting “all” martial artists for the cause of justice,” Siminoff said, adding the cause has grown ten-fold since starting out.More information can be found on Siminoff’s Facebook Page. Crescent Valley’s Dean Siminoff joined an elite company after the local martial arts expert tested, and passed, his Sixth Dan Black Belt in Taekwondo.Siminoff achieved the feat during United States Chung Do Kwan Association (USCDKA) recently in Florida.”Florida was fantastic,” Siminoff said.”I tested alongside three other Masters and even though any testing is very intense and hard work there is extreme feeling of accomplishment when it is finished.”last_img read more

In America, it is Trumpism, in Guyana it is Jordanism

first_imgIn Guyana, several people have their own brands of Trumpism. Trumpism is the exasperating farrago of distortions, misrepresentations and, frankly, outright lies pushed by unprincipled showmen parading as economic czars. Minister Jordan, last week, in a response to an October 9 editorial in Stabroek News displayed his flair for Trumpism. He disgraced himself and heaped further disgust by the citizens for the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) which, day by day, is becoming more a Government of the few, by the few and for the few.One of the main speaking points of the President and his Ministers is that all the things wrong in Guyana is the fault of someone else, other than the Government. In their best Shaggy mode – “it wasn’t me”. In addition to the People’s Progressive Party (PPP), Jordan, like all of his colleagues in the APNU/AFC Cabinet, cast blame and castigated the Private Sector, Stabroek News and the media generally for the failures of APNU/AFC. He claimed that the PPP ruined the economy and that the Private Sector and the media, represented by the Stabroek News, is shielding the PPP and sabotaging progress by APNU/AFC on behalf of the PPP. But Jordan also claimed that the country’s economy and social welfare of its people have never been better.The fact is the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) since 2015 to present has been spiralling downwards, compared to the GDP between 2006 and 2015. The PPP left an economy that was stable and robust, APNU/AFC is squandering that trajectory since 2015. Between 2010 and 2015, the economy grew about five per cent, with growth nine years in a row, one of the better-performing economies in the Caribbean Community (Caricom) and the Americas. Since 2015, however, GDP has stagnated. Last year, Jordan projected 3.9 per cent growth and only achieved 2.1 per cent, just about half of what APNU/AFC had predicted. Jordan’s Trumpism boasts that “Guyana is increasingly seen as a stable, well-managed country with bright prospects for sustainable development”. By whom? The truth dispels Jordan’s claims.Jordan admits that non-performing loans (NPL) has dramatically increased, but then ingeniously blamed the PPP for the worsening NPL. In 2014, NPL was seven per cent of all loans and at the end of 2017, it was more than 13 per cent of all loans. Since 2014, banks have lost more than $7.1 billion in NPL by businesses and more than $3.1 billion in household loans. People are simply no longer able to repay their loans. NPL is the major reason why the commercial banks have seen the return on their equity (profits) dramatically falling from 22.3 per cent in 2014 to a miserly 2.9 per cent in 2017. So why were people paying back their loans under the PPP and not able to do so now?It is because their ability to spend has reduced significantly. The talk is “business slow bad”. Spending by businesses and the public (private consumption) has fallen by almost $200 billion since the end of 2014. In 2015, private consumption fell by $79 billion, in 2016 by $85 billion and the latest measure indicates that it fell by $32 billion in 2017. People are spending about $30,000 per month less, in each household. In part, this is because of the 200 new or increased taxes. Each citizen has paid more than $64,000 in additional taxes between 2015 and 2017. The Guyana Revenue Authority and APNU/AFC have boasted they are collecting record amount of revenues, confirming that people’s ability for spending have been eroded by increased taxes.This dismal picture is only the beginning of the story. Private loans (business and household) have virtually grounded to a halt, with decreased manufacturing loans leading the way. In the meanwhile, Government is borrowing more, Government public investment spending (infrastructure and the social sector) is like the Burnham years, dependent on loans from overseas and local banks again. Increased tax collection, squeezing blood from the Guyanese people and businesses, are totally consumed by the increased interest on debt to overseas and local banks. While the national debt is increasing, the GDP is faltering and the ratio of debt to GDP is again reaching unsustainable heights. The PPP had reduced it from over 950 per cent of GDP to less than 45 per cent and now it is approaching the unsustainable mark of 60 per cent again.They are borrowing more, taxing people more, but the deficit (spending more than they have) is increasing by $9.3 billion in 2015, $34 billion in 2017 and will be more than $43 billion in 2018. As part of this picture, revenues from Government-owned businesses have moved from a surplus of $8 billion in 2015 to a loss of almost $23 billion in 2018. In the meanwhile, more than 10,000 people have lost their jobs. Jordan’s Trumpism really stinks.last_img read more

We cannot and must not tolerate injustice, suppression

first_imgDear Editor,Over the past two decades the Government – both past and present – has been taking active steps to recognise and preserve the rights of indigenous peoples in Guyana.The passage of the Amerindian Act 2006, the land titling process and community development plans are all examples of the Administrations’ quest to recognise and protect the rights of indigenous peoples in Guyana as well as to ensure that resources are made available to the Amerindian as the first peoples of this land.The APNU/AFC Administration not withstanding its slow pace of implementation of the land titling process has good intentions of seeing it through. As we are about to celebrate our 50th Independence anniversary – a time when all Guyanese are happy and proud, a time of reflection and a time to celebrate, the indigenous peoples’ rights are being trampled upon, being marginalised, stifled and suppressed by the operations of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) local office.I wish to draw attention to resources that were supposed to be made available to indigenous peoples through the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) – approximately US0,000. Over two years have elapsed since the signing of the agreement and the IDB is still sorting out implementation modalities.This delay and withholding of benefits to the Amerindian peoples of this country, I am afraid, is unacceptable to Guyana’s indigenous peoples and more so in breach of the United Nations’ Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) of which Guyana is a signatory. I am, therefore, appealing to the United Nations’ human rights bodies to investigate this clear breach of indigenous peoples’ rights in Guyana by the IDB by withholding and delaying benefits due to us by way of REDD+ preparation activities.My fellow Amerindians, there is no independence celebration for us. The IDB still thinks of us as being primitive people not worthy of priority while they enjoy the good life (air conditioned office and highly paid salaries), we are being made to beg for the next meal for our own survival.My fellow Amerindians, let us join forces together in unity. If the IDB cannot give us what is due for us, they must go. We cannot and must not tolerate injustice and suppression of our rights. United Nations (UN) and the Government of Guyana (GOG), please do something about this, since as Amerindians we want our independence. Best wishes to President Granger and the people of Guyana on our 50th Independence anniversary.Yours sincerely,Peter Persaudlast_img read more

NIS needs to get its act together

first_imgDear Editor,Numerous residents of Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) are frustrated and disappointed with the performance of the NIS in the Region. After working for decades, during which they contributed to the scheme, they are disillusioned and grieving due to the fact that they are not being paid a due pension by NIS, as expected.NIS is a mandatory insurance scheme for employees that collect contributions until a worker is qualified to receive benefits, usually after 60. However, while some get their due benefits, others experience a nightmare through no fault of theirs. In most cases, it is due to bungling and improper/inaccurate record keeping by NIS. Many retired persons are being taken advantage of and are helpless when it comes to getting redress. Officers at NIS know this and they just give these people a run around—form regional NIS office to Georgetown headquarters, and back over and over. Some think that they will die before any justice is served. Many complaints have been received from short-changed retirees who cannot afford a lawyer to represent them. A few will suffice here as examples:A widow from Anna Regina (name and documents supplied) worked continuously for 21 years as a security guard and made over 926 NIS contributions. However, she was given a grant of 6,868 for only 386 contributions in March 2011. This was because 540 contributions were not located by NIS. Subsequently, when NIS discovered the 540 additional contributions she was offered another grant.This procedure was wrong and should be redressed. One cannot be given two separate grants for over 750 contributions because NIS could not find a part of the contributions.Instead of two separate grants the contributions of 386 and 540 (926 in total) should be combined and she should be given a monthly pension by NIS. NIS refused to combine the contributions and the matter is in the hands of a top lawyer.Another person worked for over 20 years at Guyana Rice Board (GRB), all the time contributing to NIS, and has been given a pittance, a one-time grant of 8. He was told by an NIS inspector to get two persons who can testify that he worked for that time. This is hearsay evidence that NIS wants, but ignores Records of Service from past employers, saying that they have to further investigate.There are others who receive grants of 00 and similar amounts, people who have worked over 15 years and contributed to the scheme. When they object, they are told to take the grant, which tantamount to acceptance, then appeal.In my own case they have contributions for before I started to work, when I was in high school and after I stopped contributing in 2015. In between the contributions fluctuate drastically, even though I taught full-time over the years.The NIS needs to be better equipped. At the Anna Regina Branch, people are sent back to make copies of documents because they do not have a photocopier which costs less than ,000.So, one wonders, where are the contributions going?NIS also needs to be revamped and upgraded with new transformational leaders with best practices. This nightmare does not exist in other countries where employees contribute to Social Security. People need to be better served by NIS and received what is due to them, without hassle, in their golden years when they deserve a good quality of life and peace of mind.Regards,Karan Chandlast_img read more

Injera’s shines, Muthee ‘shields’ Treu

first_img0Shares0000NAIROBI, Kenya, March 31 – Kenya 7s squad returns Tuesday from their tours of Japan and Hong Kong with only the Shield to show from the latter as once again the Main Cup dream proved to be a barrier too far.Despite the dross, vice-captain Collins Injera, marked a personal milestone in Hong Kong when he cemented his position as the third all time leading try scorer in the World Series when he notched his 183rd career touch down. Paul Treu’s side ended their Hong Kong 7s charge with three points in what ranks as his worst performance since he took charge of the squad following a 17-10 victory over Portugal on Sunday.Scotland beat Shujaa 26-12 in the Bowl quarters to force the South African to line-up his charges for the Shield competition for the first time this season.A 10-7 loss to Wales and 43-5 mauling to defending champions Fiji in Pool A on Saturday was enough to end Kenya’s dream of making it a fifth Cup quarters this season.Speaking to Capital Sport from Hong Kong, Kenya Rugby Union (KRU) boss, Mwangi Muthee said the team would fire next season when the players get more used to Treu’s methods.However, the highest paid coach in the country is yet to lead the team to the Main Cup semis this season with the Scotland and London legs left to complete the HSBC World Series.“His mission is to build a team for 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and that is well on track and we expect the side to do well next season. This one was a learning process for Treu and the team,” Muthee enthused.Against Portugal, Oscar Ouma opened the scores after breaking through the backs tackle to stretch his hands and pound the ball down over the try line.Vice captain Collins Injera who provided, the opener was rewarded for his industrious work soon after beating the Portugese defence to scrum down for his 182nd World Series career try.However, Portugal hit back on the stroke of half-time as Duarte Moreira ignited the burners and sprinted up field for a solo try as Kenya led 10-5 at the interval.On resumption Injera powered a tackle on the half-way line in the fourth minute for his 183rd try, consolidating his place in third on the all-time leading scorers’ list.A late burst from Aderito Estevez reduced the deficit to seven but it was not enough as Injera accurately booted the ball into touch on the hooter to seal Kenya’s 17-10 victory and the Shield.In the semis, Spain broke the deadlock after racking up 14 passes on their way to the opening try through Pablo Fontes that Francisco Hernandez converted for a 7-0 lead.Injera could have levelled after touching down but he went ahead to miss his conversion as they trailed 7-5 to the break.It took substitute Daniel Sikuta to liven up Kenya’s chances of progressing to the finals when he ran outside to skip over a Spanish tackle to put his side in front as Injera this time round made sure his kick went through the post to advance to the final with a 12-7 score line.In the Bowl last four, Scotland kicked-off with a try that saw Mark Bennett finish off after three-pass move to cross the line for Scott Wight to convert before Oscar Ayodi sprinted through on the left flank to pull one back as Injera missed the kick.Bennett notched his brace to extend the lead before Scott Riddell intercepted from a Kenyan missed tackle to give Scotland 19-5 lead at the breather.Injera recorded his 180th career try as Kenya showed their class but speedster Andrew Turnbull broke Treu dreams of a fifth Cup last four to finish with a fine move and send Scotland to the semis with an emphatic 26-12 victory.After seven HSBC Sevens World Series rounds, Kenya has dropped to ninth on the log with 60 points ahead of the closing legs in May at Glasgow and London 7s.Series defending champions New Zealand were crowned Main Cup winners after defeating England 26-7 while South Africa beat Wales 19-14 to lift the Plate as Scotland settled for Bowl after a 31-5 victory over France.All Blacks are back at the log summit with 136 points; seven ahead of Treu’s former employers, Blitzbokke who are second while Tokyo 7s champions Fiji are third with 112 points.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

DWP union acts to bar wage list from Web site

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREChargers go winless in AFC West with season-ending loss in Kansas City“This is quite strange,” said Daily News Editor Ron Kaye. “Just six weeks ago, the state Supreme Court ruled unequivocally that these kind of records are public information, especially when they contribute to the public’s ability to have oversight of how government operates and spends their money.” The Daily News reported Sept. 30 that DWP employees’ salaries average $76,949 a year and that the workers earn nearly 20 percent more than the average Los Angeles municipal worker. Examination of the DWP’s payroll costs was triggered by a DWP board decision to seek higher rates for water and power. Two years ago, the IBEW 2005 won a five-year contract guaranteeing raises of 16.8 percent, and up to 28 percent, depending on inflation. As part of the Daily News review, DWP employees’ names, job classifications and salaries were obtained from the city under a California Public Records Act request and were posted on dailynews.com. They remain on the Web site. The union representing nearly all 8,500 Los Angeles Department of Water and Power employees sought a temporary restraining order Tuesday against the Daily News over online publication of the workers’ names, salaries and positions. Also named in the court filing by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 18 were the city of Los Angeles and the DWP Board of Commissioners. Notice of the filing was sent to the Daily News’ corporate headquarters in Denver. The newspaper was given 30 days to respond. However, the City Attorney’s Office said a hearing on the request was set for 8:30 a.m. today in Department 85 of Los Angeles Superior Court. The IBEW is seeking a court order enjoining DWP officials from releasing the salaries of employees represented by the union, according to the filing. It also says the union will seek to bar the Daily News from publishing the names, job titles and “individually identified” salary information of union-represented utility employees. The union’s complaint disputes an argument that there is a public-interest value in releasing and publishing workers’ salaries. “Union-represented employees are not upper management and they do not make any fiscal, management or policy decisions,” the complaint says. Shirley A. Lee, an attorney representing the union, declined comment. Deputy City Attorney Julie Conboy said the utility’s position at the hearing will be that DWP “complied with the law in turning the information over.” beth.barrett@dailynews.com (818) 713-3731160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Wal-Mart gains in recall defeat

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe joys and headaches of holiday travel: John Phillips160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! ROSEMEAD – While Mayor Gary Taylor and Councilman Jay Imperial scored a victory when voters rejected an attempt to recall them, Wal-Mart Stores Inc. also walked away with a much-needed boost.The nation’s largest retailer spent $300,000 backing Taylor and Imperial in Tuesday’s election, campaign finance reports show. One-third of that was donated the day of the election. Voters opposed the recall against both councilmen by an identical 59 percent to 41 percent margin. Douglas Johnson, a fellow at the Rose Institute at Claremont McKenna College, has been keeping a watchful eye on the recall. He said Wednesday that Wal-Mart has shown it will “stand by its friends.”But the real victory for Wal-Mart is that the recall did not succeed, Johnson said. Had the outcome been different, it could have proven devastating for the retailer because of past failures at the polls, he said. In 2004, voters in Inglewood decided to block the retailer from coming to the city. In Rosemead’s March election last year, two Wal-Mart supporters were ousted and replaced with two opponents.And the West Covina City Council voted two years ago to stop the retailer from buying a former BKK Landfill.“It’s nice for [Wal-Mart] to have a victory,” Johnson said, though he would not go as far as to say the win would ease the store’s entree into other cities. “Part of this is the people [in Rosemead] were sick of being caught in the middle of” a tug of war between Wal-Mart and the unions.Kevin McCall, spokesman for Wal-Mart, said in a statement that the company was pleased with the results, and went on to accuse those who pushed the recall of being outsiders.Tuesday’s vote “puts an end to the political battle instigated in large part by people who don’t even live in Rosemead,” McCall said.However, recall supporters said the unions came only after the residents made their concerns known about the Supercenter coming to town. Recall supporters countered that the organizations created to block the recall were “Astroturf” groups backed by Wal-Mart’s hired guns.Although the recall is over, the Wal-Mart controversy is not. Today, a judge is scheduled to hear a lawsuit against the retailer brought by the Garvey School District that alleges there are flaws in the environmental impact report that studied the store’s effects on nearby Rice Elementary School. The case is being heard in Los Angeles Superior Court in downtown Los Angeles.christina.esparza@sgvn.com(626) 962-8811, Ext. 2472last_img read more

Sister remembers a man ‘born to lead’

first_img6 December 2013 Former South African president Nelson Mandela, who passed away on Thursday evening, will be remembered not only as an icon whose sacrifices made the world a better place, but also as a man whose achievements came at great personal cost, to himself and to his family. In separate interviews conducted earlier this year in Mandela’s home village of Qunu in the Eastern Cape, his sister Nonyekana Bulehluti and cousin Sketshetshe Mandela spoke about their relations to the revered former statesman, who passed away on Thursday evening. Bulehluti, who has since passed away, said at the time that she could still recall the days when she used to fear her “stubborn” brother”, whom she described as someone who never talked much. She remembered Mandela as someone who stood out from the rest of the family due to his beliefs in education and his insatiable curiosity. While they never had the normal sister-brother bond, due to his activism and the many years he spent in jail, she never doubted the love he had for her. “I never spent time with bhuti [older brother],” said Bulehluti, who at the time of the interview had left the original Mandela home to live with her daughter about 15 kilometres away. “When I was a teenager, he was already igqobhoka [an educated man]. He was very quiet, but loved to laugh at anything, and that’s how I remember him – laughing and laughing.” She and Mandela shared a father but were not of the same mother. Mandela’s father, Gadla Henry Mphakanyiswa, a chief by both blood and custom, had four wives, the third being Mandela’s mother Nosekeni Fanny, while Bulehluti’s mother, Nodayimani, was the fourth wife.‘You could see he was different’ While Bulehluti was not born yet when Mandela left Qunu at the age of nine to live at nearby Mqekezweni village following his father’s passing, their later interactions revealed astonishing characteristics of a man who would later lead South Africa to its first democratic elections. “He was born to lead,” she said. “You could see he was different from all of us. He questioned things and liked to be in the company of the elders. He never spent much of his time with us … and before we knew it, he was gone [to study].” However, Bulehluti explained that the family never felt abandoned or deserted by Mandela, as they were aware of his passion for politics and his desire to see his people free. “For us, it became a matter of saying – yes, he is our brother, but he does not belong to us but to the nation. It’s something that we learnt to live with over time, and I can never regret having him as a brother. Even though it was not easy at first, he has achieved what he wanted.” ‘The children must know who this hero was’ Mandela’s cousin Sketshetshe Mandela, 78, still lives in the original family yard where Mandela and his host of siblings used to play. Mandela’s father had 13 children, four boys and nine girls, but as in any African home, the house was always filled with babies and other children of relatives. While the three huts Mandela’s mother presided over in Qunu have since been demolished to make way for a modern house, traces of the old structures are still visible. Mandela mentioned in his autobiography, Long Walk to Freedom, that of the three huts, one was used for cooking, one for sleeping and the other for storage. “In the hut in which we slept, there was no furniture in the Western sense … we slept on mats and slept on the ground,” he wrote. Sketshetshe, who bears a striking resemblance to Mandela’s mother Nosekeni, said that while a lot has changed since those days, the family still plants and harvests mielies as well as small scale poultry farming. “We are still living the way he [Mandela] left us. We refused to change now that he found fame, and whenever he comes, he finds us here still doing things the old way,” he said, holding up a portrait of himself and Mandela for the duration of the interview. On the walls of the living room are pictures of Mandela and other family members, together with other famous pictures taken during the struggle for liberation – perhaps an indication of how proud the family is of the man. “We want the children to know who this hero of the family was,” Sketshetshe said. “We want them to continue with the legacy and the foundation he laid for the entire Mandela family and the Madiba clan.” Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more

Ubuntu, which can be roughly translated as “I am because you are”, is a philosophy born of South Africa’s many cultures and languages – there are 11 official languages. It emphasizes the importance of community, a way of thinking that influenced moves towards reconciliation and cultural inclusion fostered by the late Nelson Mandela.Pianist and composer Abdullah Ibrahim explains that ubuntu is a concept of humanity beyond borders. “Music always played an integral part of the struggle; apartheid was not just a South African problem but a struggle of humanity. We had to use culture and music to put a humane face on our struggle.”Clive Gillinson, Carnegie Hall’s executive and artistic director, says: “The spirit of this attitude is embodied in the festival’s programming, which features a varied line-up of artists representing the many threads that together make up the country’s musical culture. With the Ubuntu festival, Carnegie Hall salutes South Africa as a colourful, artistic country.”This is underlined by trumpeter and composer Hugh Masekela, who says: “There is a deep abyss of content that needs to be seen. There is no society that has as much wealth, culturally and musically. This African heritage makes me feel like I come from major wealth.”Watch: Ubuntu – Music and Arts of South Africa:Diverse cultureIn creating the Ubuntu festival, “we were inspired by the cultural life of this incredibly diverse country”, says Gillinson. “It is a nation with a dynamic, often surprising culture like no other – the birthplace of larger-than-life musical presences like Masekela, Miriam Makeba, Ibrahim, and now, a seemingly endless array of vocal talent from every corner of the country. Our festival also comes 20 years after the first free elections in South Africa, an anniversary made even more resonant by the recent passing of Mandela. The country’s landscape continues to evolve, and this makes for fascinating explorations through the arts.” “There is a deep abyss of content that needs to be seen. There is no society that has as much wealth, culturally and musically.” High Masekela (Image: www.hughmasekela.co.za)Dedicated to Mandela’s legacy, the Ubuntu festival will feature performances at Carnegie Hall by artists representing different musical traditions, including performances paying tribute to notable South African icons and milestones. In addition to showcasing world-renowned South African musicians, audiences will also be introduced to many kinds of South African music that may be less well-known: the powerful spirituality and ecstasy of the maskandi music of the Zulu people; music from the Cape region, including a Cape Malay choir and folk musicians from remote regions of the Karoo; and two thrilling generations of jazz artists. In addition, two critically acclaimed South African classical singers will make their New York City recital debuts.But the festival will extend beyond Carnegie Hall, with performances and events planned for other prestigious partner organisations. The programme will include visual art, film and dance, as well as panel discussions on significant cultural issues featuring leading social and political voices.Democracy turns 20Carnegie Hall explains that the festival will begin with Twenty Years of Freedom, a programme celebrating the anniversary of 20 years of democracy in South Africa at the venue. On the bill will be Masekela and singer Vusi Mahlasela, joined by special guests.Additional festival highlights will include Voices of South Africa with world-renowned isicathamiya and mbube choral group Ladysmith Black Mambazo. It will explore the central role the voice plays in South African music. Grammy Award-winning singer Angélique Kidjo will celebrate the South African cultural icon Miriam Makeba in Mama Africa; acclaimed visual artist and filmmaker William Kentridge will host an evening of his short films with live musical accompaniment; and revered pianist and composer Ibrahim, a great champion of Cape jazz, will hold a solo concert coinciding with his 80th birthday. Ibrahim will also lead a master class for young jazz musicians, presented by Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute.Over two consecutive evenings in Zankel Hall, performances will incorporate dramatic elements. In a programme titled Paper Music: A Ciné Concert by Philip Miller and William Kentridge, Kentridge will presents an evening of his short films with live music by composer Miller. The following evening, violinist Daniel Hope will curate a music theatre production entitled A Distant Drum, joining forces with his father, pre-eminent South African writer Christopher Hope, for the Carnegie Hall-commissioned work on the life of short story writer and journalist Nat Nakasa, the brilliant, impassioned spirit of his generation who left behind South Africa’s apartheid of the 1960s for New York City. Noted authority on South African music Andrew Tracey will be the musical supervisor.Zulu musicA double-bill performance showcasing two aspects of contemporary Zulu maskandi music – which is often referred to as the “Zulu blues” – will feature two masters from KwaZulu-Natal: Madala Kunene leading a quintet that draws on the spiritual aspects of the style, and Phuzekhemisi performing exuberant, high-energy music with singers and dancers in traditional attire.A second double-bill programme in Zankel Hall will feature the Young Stars: Traditional Cape Malay Singers, a 15-voice male choir led by Moeniel Jacobs. It will perform a style of vocal music from Cape Town that combines Dutch folk songs with beautifully ornamented vocal traditions from as far afield as Malaysia, Arabia and East Africa. The programme will also feature a performance by guitarist, singer-songwriter, and tireless champion of Cape music traditions David Kramer, joined by folk musicians from the remote regions of the Karoo.Kesivan Naidoo, a drummer, composer and one of the leaders of the next wave of Cape jazz, will perform original compositions, standards and avant-garde selections for his New York City debut concert with his band Kesivan and the Lights. Dizu Plaatjies and his group Ibuyambo will perform the music of the Xhosa people as well as from other southern African traditions. In addition, two young, critically acclaimed South African sopranos will make their New York City recital debuts in Weill Recital Hall – Pretty Yende and Elza van den Heever.Citywide programmeFestival programming at leading cultural institutions throughout New York City will include music, dance, film, visual arts, panel discussions and more. Ubuntu partners include: African Film Festival Inc; Anna Zorina Gallery; Apollo Theatre; Axis Gallery; Flushing Town Hall; Jazz at Lincoln Centre; The Juilliard School; Keyes Art Projects; (Le) Poisson Rouge; Live from the New York Public Library; New Heritage Theatre Group; Queens College, City University of New York; Ubuntu Education Fund; World Music Institute; and Yossi Milo Gallery.Gillinson says: “It’s such an unbelievably diverse nation with so many different cultures, we just thought it was a really good time to bring together that real kaleidoscope of what the country is.”The Ubuntu festival runs from 10 October to 5 November.last_img read more

Pinki Pramanik undergoes gender determination test

first_imgAsian Games gold medallist athlete Pinki Pramanik, accused of being a male and currently in judicial custody for alleged rape, underwent a gender determination test on Tuesday at a North 24 Parganas district hospital, police said.A seven-member medical board was constituted at the Barasat sub-divisional hospital where the athlete underwent the test. The report, in a sealed cover, will be placed before a court on Wednesday.Pramanik has also been referred to the government-run SSKM Hospital here for further tests.”A seven-member medical team conducted several tests on her, the reports of which in a sealed envelope will be sent to the court. There are some other important tests like chromosomal and hormonal blood tests which have to be conducted to determine Pinki’s sexuality,” Chief Medical Officer of North 24 Parganas district Sukanta Sil said.”As we don’t have the infrastructure to conduct such tests in the district hospital, we have referred the case to SSKM where these tests will be conducted tomorrow (Wednesday),” added Sil.The medical team supervised the proceedings in the presence of court officials.Pramanik was arrested late Thursday night and remanded to 14 days’ judicial custody by a court Friday after the athlete’s live-in partner, a divorcee and a mother of one, filed a police complaint accusing the athlete of being a male who repeatedly “raped and tortured” her.Subsequent to the arrest, Pramanik was taken to a private nursing home for a medical check-up where the test reports claimed that the former athlete was indeed a male.advertisementPramanik, however, claimed innocence and said it was a conspiracy.Pramanik, who retired from athletics three years ago, won gold in the 4×400 metres relay at the 2006 Asian Games in Doha in Qatar. She was a silver medallist at the Melbourne Commonwealth Games the same year.The Eastern Railway, with which the athlete is a ticket collector, on Sunday suspended Pramanik following her remand to judicial custody.last_img read more

Rafael Camacho approached by Sporting Lisbon for January deal

first_imgAdvertisement AdvertisementPortugal based Sporting Lisbon eye Liverpool’s youngster Rafael Camacho on loan for the remainder of the season. Camacho, 18, was an academy graduate at Sporting previously and now the Portuguese capital comes inquiring about their former player in lieu of acquiring the youngster’s services in the coming transfer window in January.Camacho has made excellent progress since being promoted to train at Melwood on a permanent basis and impressed during the Reds’ pre-season tour of America. The Portuguese youngster also has been one of the standout performers in the club’s UEFA Youth League campaign, and while seeing no play under Klopp this season, being an unused sub thrice, however, Camacho might be on his way out of Anfield in January.The Primeira Liga side have approached the youngster and the factor of again playing in his home, for his home club might be a very deciding factor in the loan deal. Camacho joined the Reds’ academy back in 2016 following a successful trial, with midfield – both defensive and attacking – being a preference. Prior to his arrival at Liverpool, Camacho spent a couple of years in Manchester at Manchester City after making Sporting Lisbon’s academy’s exit.So far for Liverpool’s youth team, Camacho has scored seven times in fifteen appearances in all competitions and assisted eight, with four goals and three assists out of those coming from six of his UEFA Youth League appearances alone.Read also:-Football: Guardiola issues title pressure warning to Liverpoollast_img read more

3 powerful ways to do a better job in 2013

first_imgHere are three ways you can improve your work – and your workplace – in the New Year. 1. Know what you’re doing before you worry about how you’ll do it.We jump to thoughts of implementation so often in our work, and that tendency creates several problems. We may not know exactly what we’re implementing, why we’re implementing it or how much is possible. By skipping ahead to the details, we begin work that may not make sense — and we unnecessarily constrain ourselves. This year, be mindful about each idea you’re pursuing and determine its larger purpose before running forward with activities. It’s not about what you’re doing but why you’re doing it.2. Spend at least 15 minutes a day in deliberate thought about something bigger than your to-do list.This is critical. I believe in mornings – but for some people, it works best to do this exercise at the end of the day to prepare for the next morning. What larger purpose defines you right now? One year from now, what will you be glad you did tomorrow? Ten years from now? What are the big things that need to happen to advance those aspirations? I believe the sum of our efforts each year reflects the rigor we apply to these larger questions. Take a few minutes each day to ask them. You may not have every answer, but you’ll make smarter choices along the way – and let the little crap go more easily. For me, five minutes at the start of my workday plus nightly blogging are tools I use in trying to step out of everyday to-do lists and think about what ideas matter most each day. What tools can you put into place to schedule reflection?3. Think about what unites your colleagues rather than what’s in it for you.The best workplaces in the world have something in common: Colleagues embrace a collective vision, and they’d do anything for each other. I’d always prefer to be in that kind of culture than a dog-eat-dog slugfest because it’s better for me and better for my organization. Try to set a course toward that kind of camaraderie. Define what you all want to do together. Along the way, share credit. Recognize the achievements of others. Sacrifice something selfish if it yields a greater good. If you are a manager, you have the chance to transform the experience of those who report to you. Seize it with a spirit of selflessness. In the end, it’s the fastest way to achievement – and happiness – for everyone.last_img read more

Building a Global Network of Maternal Health Policymakers

first_img ShareEmailPrint To learn more, read: Posted on January 23, 2013June 12, 2017By: Sandeep Bathala, Senior Program Associate, Maternal Health Initiative, Wilson CenterClick to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)This post is cross-posted from the New Security Beat.On day three of the 2013 Global Maternal Health Conference here in Arusha, Tanzania, I was joined by the Global Health Initiative’s partners to present the results of the Wilson Center’s four-year-old Advancing Dialogue on Maternal Health Series. This series is unique in its convening power, helping to bring together experts and policymakers from around the world to collaborate on a shared goal: healthier mothers and children.From 2009 to 2012, the Global Health Initiative co-convened 22 public meetings and three private workshops with the Maternal Health Task Force and United Nations Population Fund to identify challenges and discuss strategies for moving the maternal health agenda forward. In 2011, we collaborated with the African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC) to host two simulcasted videoconferences in Nairobi, Kenya, and Washington, D.C., which allowed maternal health experts and officials from both countries – including several Kenyan Parliament members affiliated with the Health Committee and Network for Population and Development – to share experiences and best practices. In partnership with the Population Foundation of India, we are planning a similar dialogue with local, regional, and national decision-makers on effective maternal health policies and programs in New Delhi, India, this year, as well as more D.C.-based meetings.By convening both in Washington, D.C., and globally, the goal of the series is to create a platform for fieldworkers, policymakers, program managers, media, and donors to share research, disseminate lessons learned, and address concerns related to policy, institutional, and organizational capacity building. These are many of the same themes being discussed at the Global Maternal Health Conference here in Tanzania.Ruthpearl Wanjiru Ngángá, APHRC’s communications manager, highlighted some of the results that emerged from the videoconferences.Broadly, she said they found that connecting maternal death to economic loss is a powerful and effective strategy, and it’s important to increase accountability by addressing the gap between what policymakers say and what they actually do to improve maternal health.All the policymakers attending pledged to do something based on what they learned at the meetings, ranging from building maternal health shelters and lobbying to working to unify the Ministry of Health in Kenya, which is currently split between ministers of public health and medical services (duplicated funds would be used to strengthen the Division of Reproductive Health).Participants also established dialogue between the ministries of health and finance to jointly identify priority areas and to ensure that 15 percent of the Kenyan national budget goes to health efforts, as per the Abuja Declaration.Perhaps the most striking pledge was made by a member of Parliament who did not attend the videoconferences but was motivated after hearing about them: He pledged to coordinate a day once a month where pregnant women in remote areas could consult with Nairobi-based doctors through e-medicine.And the commitments, it turns out, were not empty. Since the meetings concluded Ruthpearl said they have seen additional outcomes including a parliamentary retreat on maternal, newborn, and child care; increased press coverage, especially highlighting maternal and child health statistics and reporting on fatalities; and elevated interest in maternal health issues in general, including becoming a priority for the Kenya Women Parliamentary Association.“Where I come from, husbands are delivering their wives,” Hon. Sophia Abdi Noor who represents the Somali region of northern Kenya, said later in a follow-up meeting.And Hon. Farah Maalim, deputy speaker of the National Assembly, said at the parliamentary retreat that “we are running out of time towards the MDG deadline. There is need to reactivate the agenda on women and children’s health at the national level…the new constitution of Kenya declares health as a basic right for all Kenyans. Parliament has a pivotal role to play in ensuring the realization of this right.”Moving forward, Ruthpearl said APHRC intends to focus on advancing public-private health sector partnerships in urban slums and to start a pilot study on improving maternal, newborn, and child care services for slum residents. She also said they are working to improve engagement with Kenya’s National Division of Reproductive Health on research and technical working groups and to improve the visibility of research in policy and program formulation in general.Alongside Ruthpearl and I, Crystal Lander and Dr. Steve Solter of Management Sciences for Health also spoke on the panel, about their work with the Afghan Ministry of Public Health.Dr. Luc de Bernis, senior maternal health adviser at UNFPA and one of the collaborating partners in this series, concluded the session by expressing his hope that these dialogues were contributing to a swelling global advocacy movement for improved maternal health outcomes. The audience in Arusha couldn’t have agreed more.Learn more about the conference and access the conference presentations at www.gmhc2013.com.

‘Alisson made mistakes as well’ – Wijnaldum backs Adrian

first_imgLiverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum has no concerns over back-up goalkeeper Adrian despite his error against Southampton, with it pointed out that even Alisson has made mistakes.Jurgen Klopp has been handed more headaches than he would have liked between the sticks at Anfield.Just a matter of weeks into the 2019-20 campaign, the Reds have already seen their first-choice keeper pick up an untimely knock and his understudy make both positive and negative headlines. Article continues below Editors’ Picks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? Are Chelsea this season’s Ajax? Super-subs Batshuayi & Pulisic show Blues can dare to dream Adrian was the penalty shootout hero for Liverpool in a UEFA Super Cup win over Chelsea, before suffering a bizarre knock of his own after being clattered by a celebrating supporter.He shook off that ailment to figure in a Premier League clash with Southampton, but nearly cost Liverpool precious points as he gifted Danny Ings a reply for the Saints in a game which ended 2-1.Questions have been asked of the former West Ham custodian on the back of that display, and of Alisson’s recovery schedule, but Wijnaldum sees no cause for alarm.The Dutch midfielder said of the keeper situation on Merseyside: “Those kind of things can happen with a goalkeeper.“Last season it happened to Alisson against Leicester City and in a pre-season friendly.“How is he [Adrian] going to react to the mistake? I think that is more important than the mistake itself.“Everyone can make a mistake, also a goalkeeper. But the only thing is, he is a goalkeeper, and if he makes a mistake, a lot of times, it will result in a goal.”Adrian Liverpool 2019-20Adrian is still settling into new surroundings after being snapped up as a free agent over the summer.Liverpool needed a number two after agreeing to offload Simon Mignolet to Club Brugge.Wijnaldum added, with veteran shot-stopper Andy Lonergan having also been acquired: “Everyone needs time to adjust.“He is just in for, not even two weeks, so we have to get used to each other.“It would have been easier if he had come in from the start with Simon leaving and him coming in.“Now we just have to take the time that we have and train with each other and get to know each other better because everyone needs time to settle in – I had it also when I came here – I think all of the signings had it when they signed for Liverpool. So he will be ok.”Liverpool will be back in action on Saturday, with Adrian likely to provide their last line of defence once more in a home date with Arsenal.

Bakayoko sent back to Monaco on loan

first_imgChelsea’s Tiemoue Bakayoko has completed his medical and signed for his former club Monaco on loan with a €42.5m (£38m/$46m) option to buy.  The 25-year-old attempted to impress new manager Frank Lampard in pre-season but he failed to make the required impact to return to the Blues first team. If Monaco pay the €42m fee at the end of the season, it would make Bakayoko their third most expensive signing of all-time, after just Radamel Falcao and James Rodriguez.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club?

Super-subs Batshuayi & Pulisic show Blues can dare to dream The Provincial club see the return of the powerful midfielder who broke through at the club and played 84 times. He played a major role in Monaco’s Champions League run of 2016-17 that led to the Blues paying £40m ($49m) to sign him that summer. However, he has quickly been deemed surplus to requirements by yet another manager after struggling under Antonio Conte and being loaned out to AC Milan under Maurizio Sarri. Bakayoko has played just 43 times for Chelsea and Kenedy could be the next first-team star to exit the club ahead of the European transfer window closure on 2 September. Paris Saint-Germain and Galatasaray both explored the option to sign Bakayoko on loan, but PSG opted to move for Everton’s Idrissa Gana Gueye for €35m (£32m/$39m) instead. Galatasaray were dismissed by Chelsea who are keen to see their asset regain his form on loan, and therefore increase his transfer value. After Chelsea’s 2-2 draw with Sheffield United where 18-year-old Billy Gilmour debuted due to injury issues, Lampard spoke about why he let go of Bakayoko and Drinkwater in the circumstance. “Danny has been here for two years and hadn’t played many games. He was eager for his own benefit, which I felt was good for us,” Lampard said at Stamford Bridge. “Bakayoko similarly was here for one season, went on loan and going on loan again to try to bring himself back to where he wants to be. “If you want to talk midfield players we have got Jorginho, [Mateo ] Kovacic,  [N’Golo] Kante, [Mason] Mount, [Ross] Barkley, Reece James coming back from injury who can play in midfield, Andreas Christensen who can play in midfield. I have to make decisions on the squad as a whole, that is my job.” Bakayoko is not going to be available for tomorrow’s Ligue 1 game against Strasbourg but he could make his debut against Marseille after the international break. Monaco are currently in 19th place after a poor start to the season where they have lost two of their first three games, drawing the other one.last_img read more

I try to show him every day in training.“There is a bit of team-mates telling me to be patient but obviously I’m hungry and want to play now. I’m going to fight for it every day.

India’s fine achievement against Qatar

first_imgThe defence of India was tested to the hilt by Qatar’s attackers but the Blue Tigers held firm to hold the reigning AFC Asian Cup champions to a goal-less draw at Doha on Tuesday.It took a tremendous individual effort from goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu and the entire India defence to walk away with a draw in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying clash but it is a clean sheet that deserves massive respect.With that Herculean effort at Doha, India have become the first Asian side that Qatar have failed to beat in 2019.

‘F*ck off, Maguire!’ Man Utd’s new lynchpin silences Leicester fans

first_imgThere was a moment in the second half of Manchester United’s 1-0 win over Leicester at Old Trafford on Saturday when the visitors attempted to get the ball forward and into a channel for Demarai Gray to chase and bear down on goal.Harry Maguire stepped across, matched Gray yard-for-yard, and eased him out of the way to win the ball.It earned Maguire a standing ovation, one he truly deserved on a day when three precious points were pocketed.

Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? Are Chelsea this season’s Ajax? Super-subs Batshuayi & Pulisic show Blues can dare to dream Maguire had been getting it in the neck from the corner of Leicester fans all afternoon. Here, in one tiny fraction of the game, he was given a chance to respond.“F*ck off Maguire,” the Leicester fans sang. “We don’t need you.”And while it may be true that the England man’s replacement, Caglar Soyuncu, has done well in this Premier League season so far for Leicester, it was he who committed the fatal error which allowed United to score the one and only goal of the game.He was a little too eager to win the ball inside the area from Marcus Rashford and stuck an ill-advised foot in. Rashford tumbled and dispatched the penalty.United were in the middle of their best half hour of football since the opening day destruction of Chelsea. They were patched up to an extent, without Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Luke Shaw, but covered for the absences well.Maguire was the preferred candidate to take the ball into Leicester territory and, in Dan James, United have a livewire attacker who looks like conjuring something every time he gets on the ball.Inside the first two minutes he was close to winning a penalty himself, having turned Ricardo Pereira and getting on the wrong side of the right-back. He was eased off the ball and Andreas Pereira forced a wonderful save from Kasper Schmeichel off the resultant free kick.Harry Maguire Manchester United 2019-20Part of this United line-up were an awkward fit, however.Scott McTominay lacks precision in his passes and gives the ball away all too cheaply. Pereira is neat and tidy on the ball but does not possess the instinct wide in midfield to track his full-back. Ben Chilwell advanced well to make inroads, and could have had a goal from a dipping half-volley off a half-cleared corner.That brought a good save from David de Gea, now in line for a monster windfall with his new £15m-per-season contract. He has had his difficulties over the last 18 months or so but had to be alert with a couple of saves here to preserve the clean sheet.There remains a vulnerability in the heart of the United defence when confronted with long, direct balls. James Maddison benefitted from Maguire and Victor Lindelof both missing one early on and De Gea saved well with the underside of his body.It wasn’t a day when the Spaniard was snowed under and that had a lot to do with how Maguire marshalled the defence. He was ably supported by the other new arrival Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who recovered from the knock which cost him his England debut to give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a boost in the starting line-up here.The ball appears to have a magnetic attraction to Wan-Bissaka; his ability to intercept and tackle is superlative. He is rarely beaten one on one. Even when Maddison and Chilwell teamed up to go around him, Leicester rarely penetrated.It was an off-day for them, no doubt. Brendan Rodgers’ team were third and unbeaten coming here, against a depleted United, and will view this as a missed opportunity to gain momentum in their season.It could have even been 2-0 had Rashford’s late free kick found the corner instead of the frame of the goal.United dug deep and held on, seeing off the pressure Leicester brought late in the day.

Kante concedes Chelsea haven’t been great

I am disappointed by the result but I am happy to be back to help the team to try to win.“We tried our best during the game and we are disappointed by the result.

We were able to score one but not to equalise, but there were some good points in the performance and we need to take those points on to have a good result in the next game.

I don’t know what will happen next year, but he certainly has many opportunities.”I already trust him to have a very good career, absolutely. But he has already started.” Low was full of praise for the midfielder in an interview with Bild, highlighting his goal against Argentina as an example of the quality he adds to the national team.“Kai is always relatively close to our starting XI,” he said. Kai can stand in the starting XI in almost any game, he has this quality.“His goal, for example, was a typical Kai Havertz goal — orchestrated from deep in the midfield on a technically high level. That was great.”Bayer Leverkusen sporting director Rudi Voller confirmed in August that Bayern Munich have previously showed an interest in Havertz, who is in line to feature for his country in the Euro 2020 qualifier against Estonia on Sunday.last_img read more

Ndombele: In five years, I could be forgotten

Outlook improving at Buoy 10

first_imgOutlook improving at Buoy 10 Improved coho fishing bodes well for end of season By Terry Otto, Columbian staff writer Published: August 15, 2018, 10:01pm Bait best so farMonroe’s best bite has come on anchovies. Mulkey has also found the best bite to be on bait, but spinners will still produce at times, and the tides this weekend should be perfect for a spinner presentation.Look for the fishing to continue to improve as the Chinook season approaches the closure. Coho fishing should remain good into early September. There will be a slight lull in the action in the later half of the month until the late run of coho enters the river in early October.Regulations: Barbless hooks are required for all salmon and steelhead angling in the Columbia River. Anglers may keep one salmonid per day, which can be one chinook, one fin-clipped coho, or one fin-clipped steelhead. Fishing in the ocean off the mouth of the Columbia (Marine Area 1) is now closed. Always check the regulations before fishing.Guides ListMulkey’s Guide Service, Terry Mulkey: (503) 803-1896, http://www.mulkeysguideservice.com/Team Hook-up Guide service, Brandon Glass: (503) 260-8285, https://teamhookupfishing.com/ Receive latest stories and local news in your email: Share: GO Follow Share: He reports the Chinook are running from 16 to 20 pounds on average, with some fish to 25 pounds, and he has taken a 30-pound Chinook already this year.Glass reports that the strong outgoing tides this last week produced a tough bite.“There has been a poor bite on the big outgoes,” said Glass. “We are really struggling to get them to go.”Strong tides create heavy current that pushes the schools of salmon back behind the headlands where they keg up but are tough to tease into biting.The tides will weaken quite a bit this weekend, and that should mean better fishing. The action has been good for coho and fair for Chinook out at the Columbia River estuary. There have been decent bites at the Buoy 10 line on the tide changes. Terry Otto/The Columbian Photo Gallery The Buoy 10 fishery has been open for two weeks now, and a number of fishing patterns are beginning to emerge.Catches have improved over the last week, and anglers and guides are figuring where to be to intercept the schools. They are also locking in on the patterns of bait, depth, and tides.Coho catches have been surprisingly good, and the fish are in excellent condition. Many guides and anglers think that the coho run will return better than expected.The improved coho fishing, and good catches in the salt prior to this week, bode well for the second half of this fishery when the season closes for Chinook after Aug. 24.center_img A good place to start the day is out at the Buoy 10 line. Guide Terry Mulkey of Mulkey’s Fishing Guide Service, and Brandon Glass of Team Hook-up Guide Service both reported good fishing there on Monday morning.“There was a decent bite right at Buoy 10 this morning,” said Glass, who reported seeing more coho caught that morning than he had seen yet.Terry Mulkey also found a decent bite at the buoy on Monday and had four fish in his box before noon, including two Chinook and two coho.“Today I saw about 40 fish caught out there for about 150 boats, and I’m sure there were fish caught that I did not see,” he said. He runs lead droppers for everyone when he is fishing four or fewer anglers. If he has a full boat of six fishers he will run divers on four rods, and lead on two.His trolling tactic has been to follow the schools as they move up the estuary.“Once that bite stops at Buoy 10 we fall back in front of Hammond, and wait for them to come in,” Mulkey said. “After that bite we fall back again and try to get in front of those fish.”“On the Washington side after the bite at the buoy fall back to Chinook, and then fall back to the (Astoria/Megler) bridge.” Terry Otto Columbian staff writer Follow The Columbian on Instagram 3 Photos The Chinook are also in good condition, but they are a little harder to find. Most Buoy 10 fishermen think that part of the run will come in about as expected.An estimated 375,500 fall Chinook and 213,600 coho should return to the Columbia River this fall.Conditions and tides may be just about perfect for this coming weekend’s fishing.Catches and effort have increased. Washington creel surveys show that from Aug. 1-7, 1,312 anglers caught 188 Chinook and 16 coho. From Aug. 8-12, 615 anglers kept 161 Chinook and 43 coho.Oregon creel surveys show that during the last full week 2,437 anglers kept 390 Chinook and 20 coho. They released another 94 Chinook and 29 coho.Coho catches improved on Monday according to guides, and that was reflected in the creel surveys. Both guides are looking forward to this weekend’s softer tides, which should cause the fish to hold in the estuary for a few days before moving upriver.“This Thursday through Saturday on the softer tides the pro-trolls should work pretty well,” Glass said.Pro-troll flashers which work best in slow current situations. They are often fished with spinners or the Brad’s Super Baits.Mulkey’s trolling tacticsMulkey reports that he is finding most of his fish suspended in the water column. He is using 12 to 16 ounces of lead and running 25 to 30 feet off his line counter reels.

Gauff’s U.S. Open ends with loss to No. 1 Osaka

For me, the definition of an athlete is someone who on the court treats you like your worst enemy, but off the court can be your best friend,” Gauff said later at her news conference. “I think that’s what she did tonight.”It’s that sort of maturity off the court, and a wise-beyond-her-years game on it, that has helped Gauff generate all sorts of attention already. She was the youngest woman since 1996 to win two matches at Flushing Meadows, her follow-up to a captivating run to the second week at Wimbledon in July.In this much-hyped showdown under the lights, Gauff often looked exactly like what she is: an immensely talented player who is still learning her way at tennis’ top level.“We definitely know what we’ve got to work on,” Gauff’s father, Corey, said. “She wanted to win the match.

So, too, did her on-target power, which resulted in a 24-8 edge in winners.“For me, this is the most focused I’ve been since Australia,” said Osaka, who’s had an up-and-down season since earning that trophy and is wearing a black sleeve on the left knee that’s been problematic lately.

Knowing how tough it is to lose, Osaka told her: “You need to let those people know how you feel.”So Gauff obliged — a rare instance of a match’s loser addressing the crowd from the court. And was appreciative of Osaka’s gesture. Addressing Gauff, she said: “I’m so sorry for playing you (with) this type of mentality.”When it ended, after merely 65 minutes, Gauff began to bawl on the sideline. Osaka approached her and they spoke, briefly, then later cried, too, while addressing Gauff’s parents on-court.“For me, it’s crazy to me to see how far she’s come in such a little amount of time,” said Osaka, who was born in Japan and moved to the U.S. when she was 3.Both players are based in Florida now and have known each other for a few years. Their fathers are friends. Moving into the men’s fourth round were three-time champion Rafael Nadal and 2014 title winner Marin Cilic, who are the only past Grand Slam champs in their half of the draw and now must face each other. Cilic, the No. 22 seed, overcame his own 17 double-faults and withstood 40 aces from 14th-seeded American John Isner to win 7-5, 3-6, 7-6 (6), 6-4. With Isner and Tennys Sandgren losing Saturday, zero American men reached the fourth round.Other winners included No. 6 Alexander Zverev, No. 13 Gael Monfils, No. 24 Matteo Berrettini and unseeded Andrey Rublev, who beat the ever-combustible Nick Kyrgios 7-6 (5), 7-6 (5), 6-3.Kyrgios is facing a possible suspension after calling the ATP “pretty corrupt” over a $113,000 fine it levied for outbursts at a tuneup tournament. He was relatively subdued Saturday, other than calling a line judge a “whistleblower” for reporting him to the chair umpire for cursing.There’s always something with Kyrgios, who said afterward his eyes might have had trouble adjusting to the artificial lights in Ashe because he plays too many video games.

Crystal Debussy Joins Crystal River Cruises Fleet

first_imgNewest ship in Crystal River Cruises award-winning fleet is delivered in handover ceremony  MIAMI, March 8, 2018 – Crystal River Cruises, the World’s Most Luxurious River Cruise Line™, today welcomed Crystal Debussy to its award-winning fleet. The latest addition to the Crystal portfolio brings the river fleet to four luxury river ships since Crystal launched its river experiences in 2016. The vessel was delivered to Crystal president and CEO, Tom Wolber at MV WERFTEN during the official handover ceremony in Wismar, Germany. In attendance was Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay, chairman and CEO of Crystal’s parent company, Genting Hong Kong (GHK), Colin Au, group president of GHK, and Jarmo Laasko, CEO of MV WERFTEN. “We look forward to welcoming Crystal Debussy to our river fleet as we continue to expand Crystal’s hallmark brand of luxury to the river cruising industry,” Wolber said. “She will debut next month with the same superior onboard amenities, caring service, world-class dining, complimentary experiences ashore, and highly-sought after itineraries that our guests have enjoyed onboard all of our river vessels. Once again, the experts at MV WERFTEN have demonstrated their masterful skills and attention to detail. We offer our deepest thanks for their hard work.” “Today is a special day for Genting Hong Kong in many respects,” said Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay. “We are not only handing over the third ship built at our shipyards to Crystal but we are also starting production in both Wismar and Rostock on the first 205,450 GT Global cruise ship. With our new shipbuilding complex’s topping out ceremony, which takes place in the Rostock shipyard, we have also reached another milestone in our extensive investment program.” “With the Crystal Debussy, another exclusive ship has left our shipyard,” said MV WERFTEN CEO Jarmo Laakso after the flag-changing ceremony. “We would like to thank our employees for their service and commitment to this ahead-of-schedule delivery, as well as our customers for their renewed outstanding cooperation. We wish the ship and her crew safe journeys and may there always be water beneath her keel.” Crystal Debussy joins Crystal River Cruises, which was voted “Best River Cruise Line” by the readers of Travel + Leisure in the magazine’s 2017 World’s Best Awards. Sailing itineraries between Amsterdam and Basel, the 106-guest Crystal Debussy will travel along the Rhine River, beginning with her April 9, 2018 maiden voyage round-trip from Amsterdam. Guests will visit ports in the Netherlands and Belgium on the seven-day itinerary, with 10-day voyages also calling in Germany. Throughout 2018 and 2019, the ship will sail routes of seven and 10 days between Amsterdam and Basel along the Rhine and Moselle rivers, visiting Switzerland, Germany, Netherlands and Belgium. In addition, Crystal will welcome Crystal Ravel to the fleet next month joining sister ships Crystal Bach, Crystal Mahler, Crystal Debussy and the line’s first river ship, Crystal Mozart. Crystal’s new river vessels are the river cruising industry’s first and only all-balcony, all-suite, all-butler vessels in Europe, with every category of accommodation perched above the waterline. They offer Crystal’s acclaimed butler service in every room category, king-sized beds, Panoramic Balcony-Windows™, walk-in closets and dual vanity in the bathrooms in most categories, ETRO robes and slippers, and wall-mounted flat-screen HD TVs. Additional enticing features include farm-to-table cuisine in multiple, open-seating eateries: the elegant Waterside Restaurant, namesake Bistro cafés and the exclusive Vintage Room; and the Palm Court for entertainment, enrichment presentations and sweeping views of the countryside. As with all Crystal River Cruises voyages, a recently unveiled Crystal Collection of more than 200 inclusive shore-side adventures enhance the journey. Each river itinerary also feature inclusive Signature Events – special events that offer rare access and musical performances in iconic landmarks including Vienna’s Belvedere Palace, Linz’s St. Florian Monastery, Rüdesheim’s Monastery Eberbach, and others. To ensure that every detail of each experience is in line with Crystal’s exacting standards of service, excursion group sizes are limited to no more than 15 guests; for larger groups, guides are available to lead the tours in German, Spanish, Portuguese and other languages upon request. Crystal Collection shore excursions offer guest transport to iconic sites and regions via spacious motor coaches that include free WiFi.  About CrystalThe world-renowned Crystal Experience – featuring global journeys with Crystal Cruises, Crystal River Cruises, Crystal Yacht Expedition Cruises, Crystal AirCruises and Crystal Luxury Air – continues to entice the world’s most discerning travelers with incomparable luxury and unparalleled personal service.

Sea the Ocean in a Whole New Way with the Looker 370

first_img Sip On the Original Stormtrooper Beer While You Wait for the Next Star Wars Movie ParitetboatFor most casual boaters, glass bottom boats are a novelty best enjoyed on some far-flung tropical island getaway. They promise a unique window to the underwater world, but the often tired, cracked, and beat-up hulls rarely deliver more than a blurry, unsatisfying view. But, Paritetboat’s Looker 370 is an entirely different animal — a unique glass bottom boat unlike any you’ve seen before.All-new for 2019, the Russian-made Looker 370 is designed to slot neatly into the middle of Paritetboat’s lineup. It boasts the looks, elegance, passenger capacity, and creature comforts similar to the company’s flagship Looker 440GB, but with the agility and affordability of the entry-level Looker 320. From the side, the Looker 370 reveals a silhouette similar to an orca on the move with a sharply curved bow forming the head and an exaggerated rear wing defining the whale’s dorsal fin. It’s an elegant, streamlined design reminiscent of much faster, more powerful speedboats. Next Previous Paritetboat 1 of 3 World’s First Luxury Space Hotel Promises Climbing Wall, Low-Gravity Basketball Courts For Sale: A Treehouse in the Suburbs Designed by John Lautner center_img While it’s no cigarette boat, the optional inboard diesel or dual outboard engines pushing up to 400 horsepower offer more than enough thrust for a leisurely day on the water. Plus, the 500-liter (132-gallon) fuel capacity promises to take you and 29 of your closest friends (or paying customers) wherever the most colorful marine life might be swimming.The Looker 370’s pièce de résistance is, of course, the glass bottom itself. The hull is constructed of a special sea-grade aluminum alloy with a durable corrosion-resistant finish. It encases a large glass bottom, promising panoramic views of the world below. The “glass” is actually a heavily modified acrylic that’s more solid than fiberglass and virtually impossible to break. Hydraulic steering, cabin climate control, and a bimini top are all standard, while upgraded features like a toilet, shower, stereo system, and a lunch table are also available. Inside, the features and layout are straightforward. Designed first and foremost as a commercial vessel, the floor plan consists of a single, large, oval bench that rings the oversized window in the floor.Paritetboat hasn’t disclosed pricing for the 2019 Looker 370. But, if you’re the kind of well-heeled hotshot who’s in the market for a premium, one-of-a-kind glass bottom boat, we imagine the price isn’t much of a consideration anyway.

DHWSAs Love Story

first_imgWritten By: Lisa Sheldon  “How did DWHSA start?” People ask me that all the time about the Destination Wedding & Honeymoon Specialists Association (DWHSA)!And, they’re always surprised that our group was launched by two people who had a vision, who’d met for just a brief introduction two years prior, and who created DWHSA with just emails and phone calls. As they say, here is the rest of the story.On Oct. 7, 2010, I attended a destination wedding and honeymoon workshop near the Chicago/O’Hare airport. Having focused on this niche since 2000, I was always looking for educational opportunities. The room was full of travel agents who were either interested in the niche or who were already actively selling destination weddings and honeymoons. John Hawks – an agency owner and the former president of the Association of Retail Travel Agents (ARTA) and senior vice president of the National Tour Association (NTA), had organized the event. Several agents in the group shared their expertise in the niche, and we received materials in a binder and on a CD (which turned out to be helpful tools with sample forms and timelines). I introduced myself to John and thanked him for organizing such a great class.Now, jump ahead to 2012, when I started using Facebook as a marketing tool for my travel agency. Prior to that, Facebook was just a social means for me. I found several groups for travel agents where ideas and issues were shared among participants with varying levels of experience – from brand-new agents to those with many years of experience. Some agents asked very basic questions, while others posted more detailed questions – but, one thing I noticed is that, when someone asked about honeymoons or destination weddings, only a handful of agents would answer those questions!Because I knew there were other agents like me who were as serious about selling romance travel as I am, I chose to start my own Facebook group in July 2012 and called it “Destination Weddings & Honeymoon Specialists.” I invited those agents whom I always saw posting in other online groups, and I asked them to invite others they might know who’d benefit from it. I created this group to ask questions and share information specifically about honeymoons and destination weddings. Much to my surprise, the group grew very fast, proving once again that this niche continues to be very popular based on demand and that travel agents were eager to learn more about it.Going through some old notes, I came across the binder that I’d received in the 2010 training near O’Hare. I reached out to John asking if he’d share the Facebook group information with his list of agents from the workshop. He explained that he planned to offer that workshop as a webinar series (rather than in-person classroom sessions) – and, by the end of that call, we seemed like old friends and I’d volunteered to present one of the first online classes!The Facebook group continued to grow, and I spoke at the very first Mexico Romantico conference and then again at the annual Love Mexico event. Again, I noticed that there wasn’t much specific romance travel training out there for agents, so I started asking questions:  What types of educational opportunities were the agents looking for, and what tools did they need to help them manage and grow their businesses? Other niche-specific associations like the Association for Promotion of Tourism to Africa (APTA) and the Society for Accessible Travel and Hospitality (SATH), but nothing that focused on the romance travel area.Just before I left for Love Mexico’s event that December, I mentioned to John in a phone call that there was a need for an association for destination wedding and honeymoon specialists. “Funny you should mention that!” he said. “After doing those workshops around the country and moving the course online, I’ve wanted to start an association like that – but, I haven’t found the right person yet to help me with it. Would you be interested?”That’s how DWHSA launched on Feb. 1, 2013! With a platform of education and networking for agents focused on romance travel, the association accepted almost 100 members from all parts of the United States and Canada in just the first month. Now, less than four years later, we’re more than 800 members strong! Here’s a quick rundown of the benefits that membership in DWHSA offers:Online Networking:  Odd as it sounds, members tell us that our private, closed, secret Facebook group for members only is one of the top DWHSA benefits! They post specific questions about resorts and destinations, the tools used to manage a travel business, sales and marketing challenges, and other travel-related inquiries. Every day, we throw in topics for discussion that cover everything from technology and time management to marketing and motivation (and even the occasional “Throw Back Thursday” where seasoned agents will share photos of their Rolodexes or handwritten train tickets!).Webinars:  DWHSA conducts 60-minute webinars twice every week (Tuesdays and Thursdays at 1 pm Eastern, usually), and we record those sessions and store the videos in DWHSAMembers.com (our members-only web site). Topics range from destination overviews by tourism offices and in-depth presentations by hotel/resort companies, cruise lines, and wholesalers about their romance travel packages and policies to hands-on marketing and management classes that help our members grow and run their businesses. Now, DWHSA has the world’s largest online library of romance-travel-specific content! John and I have personally created many of the webinars, from “The Anatomy of a Destination Wedding” and “From Hosted to Independent” to the basics of creating an Adobe Spark proposal and finding creative content and photos for email newsletters.Newsletters:  We send members two email newsletters each week. The Monday issues focus on news from the bridal and romance industry, while the Friday issues recap the week’s travel industry headlines from the U.S.A. and Canada. They’re a great way to catch all of the highlights that happen during the week – especially for agents who don’t have time to keep up with their travel trade magazines!Online Training and Certification:  We created a 55-module video-based “How to Sell Romance Travel” course that members can run through from start to finish or “cherry pick” the specific lessons they want. After the course, members can take an online exam to qualify for DWHSA’s own professional designation with its own logo:  “Certified Destination Wedding, Honeymoon, and Romance Travel Specialist.” (This is the only romance travel certification in North America that’s been created by agents who work every day in this niche!) The next step is a “Master Specialist” qualification that requires a theme paper and other steps for more experienced agents.Fam Trips:  Since DWHSA began, several wholesalers, resort companies, and tourism offices have partnered with us to offer fam trips focusing specifically on romance travel. On these trips, our members see destination wedding ceremony setups, they learn the most popular ceremony locations at key resorts, and they discuss “Plan B” options in case of rain or other problems. That training helps those members sell the resorts and destinations more confidently and gives them firsthand knowledge with lots of their own photos! Also, we’ve organized three-day workshops in Mexico to give agents specialty certifications in LGBT romance travel and South Asian destination weddings. They learn how to market to and serve the needs of clients in those market segments.Consumer Marketing:  We’re now doing joint programs with national bridal and travel publications such as “BRIDES Magazine” (special articles featuring DWHSA members giving advice on destination wedding planning) and “Destination I Do” (consumer webinars on key romance travel destinations) to encourage couples to work with a romance travel specialist. And, members also receive a free listing in the agent directory at RomanceTravelSpecialists.com where consumers can search for us based on geographic location or our areas of expertise.Romance Travel University:  From our first year, DWHSA has hosted an annual educational conference that highlights current trends and topics in this niche. What sets our training events apart is that members present seminar topics, speak on the panels, and share their best practices – so, we’re always learning from agents who work every day in romance travel with brides and couples! Our conferences have grown from a one-day event to the multi-day Romance Travel University which will be held in Las Vegas on May 2-4, 2017 (TheRomanceTravelUniversity.com). The newly revamped conference will feature certification workshops with the Gay Wedding Institute and the brand-new Jewish and Interfaith Wedding Institute, a “Romance Travel Boot Camp” for newer agents, an advanced boot camp for agents with more experience, and pre- and post-conference tours focused on romance travel. Plus, we’ll welcome special seminars with top North American speakers such as Jeff and Stephanie Padovani (BookMoreBrides.com) and Cherie Ronning (Wedding Network USA)!When we started DWHSA in 2013, our focus was destination weddings and honeymoons. Now, we’ve expanded our training and networking to cover all areas of romance travel – a broader terms that also means proposal trips, elopements, babymoons, familymoons, anniversary trips, vow renewals, and all types of romantic getaways. As this recession-proof niche continues to grow, membership in DWHSA gives travel agents a foundation on which to build a strong, profitable romance travel business. Most of all, we’d love to have you join us! Check us out at JoinDWHSA.com, or contact us at support@dwhsa.com.last_img read more

Majestic Hotel Spa Barcelona Fuses Art Beauty in New Sensorial Experience

first_imgIn collaboration with Italian brand Hora Sexta, the Art & Beauty Majestic Experience will invite guests to create their own work of “wellness art,” completely customized to their preferences BARCELONA, Spain (July 23, 2019) – Majestic Hotel & Spa Barcelona, the five-star luxury hotel that is as iconic as it is emblematic of the Spanish city’s lifestyle, architecture and society, has unveiled a brand new Majestic Experience, completely personalized by the guest: Art & Beauty by Majestic Spa & Hora Sexta. Majestic Experiences are activities and excursions offered exclusively to guests to explore the hotel’s and city’s many treasures. This new Majestic Experience will fuse together the property’s most discerning aspects: its 1,000-piece art collection, idyllic spa and five-star gastronomy. In collaboration with Hora Sexta, the Italian brand that combines excellence and luxury with biological science, the Art & Beauty experience will combine the potential of both themes and invite guests to create their own work of “wellness art,” taking the concept of tailormade experiences to a whole new level. Also known as the Hotel of the Arts, the Majestic Hotel & Spa Barcelona has not only hosted some of the world’s most influential artists, like Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró, but its walls and corners offer an incredible collection of contemporary art including paintings, sculptures and graphic works displayed throughout common areas and guest rooms. The Art & Beauty experience will take guests on an artistic journey throughout the hotel with an opportunity to personalize their experience at every phase. While viewing each of ten works of art, a spa therapist will invite the guest to make a choice, for example, between different essential oils, a selection of rose petals, four types of stones, or a variety of aromas from a chest of perfumes. The choices, which are meant to be influenced by the guest’s current physical state and mood, will be noted by the therapist who will then create a personalized treatment that combines all the ingredients chosen, using Hora Sexta products. Hora Sexta’s treatments are designed to undo the damage caused by day-to-day stress. Art & Beauty will be a cutting-edge ritual that will help guests to relax and experience beauty with a new sense of wellbeing. The treatment is designed to slow down and rebalance the rhythm of life while the innovative Hora Sexta biotechnologies provide the necessary elements to help nourish the skin and reconnect the body with nature. The third facet of the sensorial experience will highlight taste, inviting guests to enjoy El Bar del Majestic or La Dolce Vitae, the hotel’s newly renovated rooftop terrace. David Romero, the hotel’s executive chef, has prepared a menu with ingredients selected by Hora Sexta thanks to their restorative properties: arugula, chili, olives, extra virgin olive oil, rice, wheat, almond, avocado, apple, grape, orange and cherry. The Art & Beauty experience lasts about three and a half hours depending on the client’s preferences and is priced at 490 euros. Aligned with its commitment to the environment, Majestic Hotel & Spa Barcelona relies on its staff, external partners and guests to promote environmentally friendly practices throughout the hotel. Selecting partners such as Hora Sexta, whose manufacturing processes and products are respectful of the environment, further solidifies the hotel’s longtime commitment to sustainability.  ABOUT MAJESTIC HOTEL & SPA BARCELONA “In the world of great luxury hotels, the old is now the new,” – that’s what the experts say when speaking of hotels with such profound tradition and history like Majestic Hotel & Spa Barcelona. Since opening in 1918, the five-star hotel owned by the Soldevila-Casals family has played an emblematic role in Barcelona architecture, society and lifestyle, hosting notable guests such as Ernest Hemingway and Antonio Machado. Led by interior designer Antonio Obrador, the neo-classical French style property has completed a five-year renovation and has reclaimed its place among the iconic landmarks of the vibrant city. With a privileged location in the heart of Barcelona on stylish Passeig de Gràcia, the 271-room property is home to an unmatched 1,000-piece art collection with works by artists such as Antoni Tàpies and Josep Guinovart. Under the direction of Michelin star Chef Nandu Jubany, a robust gastronomic offering is highlighted by the Majestic Breakfast Experience, named Europe’s Best Breakfast in 2018 by Prix Villégiature. Additionally, The Leading Hotels of the World, a prestigious organization that represents independent luxury hotels from around the world, recognized the property with the Remarkably Uncommon award in 2018; the hotel has been a member of the organization since December 2014.Majestic Hotel & Spa Barcelona is also home to the city’s largest suite, a 5,000-square-foot penthouse with capacity for six, a dining room, two panoramic terraces and access to a personal butler and chauffeur. www.hotelmajestic.es.last_img read more

Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line Completes Successful Hurricane Dorian Humanitarian Cruise

first_imgGrand Celebration was First Cruise Ship to Dock in Freeport;1,100 Documented Bahamian Evacuees Transported Safely to Port of Palm Beach September 7, 2019 – Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line’s Grand Celebration arrived at its home port, the Port of Palm Beach, at 7:30 a.m. this morning with more than 1,100 Bahamian residents who were evacuated as a result of Hurricane Dorian. The cruise line spent nearly a full day clearing potential evacuees, including vetting their visa and passport documentation. Key Facts and Figures from This Cruise: Grand Celebration departed Port of Palm Beach on Thursday, September 5, with nearly 300 first responders and volunteers, as well as 200 Bahamian residents who were stranded in South Florida during Hurricane Dorian. Among the first responders who cruised, there were numerous representatives from the West Palm Beach Fire Rescue, more than 60 medical professionals, and other small humanitarian groups. Ship personnel prepared 850 boxed lunches and delivered them to local shelters. The ship was loaded with 150 palettes, totaling more than 225,000 pounds of supplies, including water, food, personal hygiene products, medical equipment, generators, and more. Four of these palettes were exclusively dog food. 100 additional Bahamian bins were also transported, sent from family members in South Florida and delivered directly to Grand Bahama Island residents – who picked them up in Freeport. In addition to delivering supplies, medical personnel onboard also delivered a baby (when visiting a local facility in Freeport)! Bahamians who traveled to Palm Beach via Grand Celebration were met upon arrival at the port by volunteers from various South Florida nonprofits, as well as representatives from the Bahamian Relief Consortium. Call for Donations: While Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line touched many lives during this humanitarian cruise, there is still more work to be done. Local South Florida residents who wish to drop off supplies to aid the residents of Grand Bahama Island can still deliver them to the cruise line’s Riviera Beach warehouse at 301 Broadway Ave., Bay #7, in Riviera Beach, FL 33404. For the complete list of supplies needed and to make a monetary donation, please visit www.MissionResolve.org. Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line has canceled its September 7,9, and 11 sailings.

From Docs to Dramas These Are the Best Wine Movies to Watch

first_img 7 of the Best Drink References in Music 16 Best Action Movies on Netflix Right Now Editors’ Recommendations Wine has exploded and pop culture has taken notice. The last fifteen or so years have yielded some truly wonderful wine-themed motion pictures, ones that not only educate, but entertain and fully captivate (in addition to making you thirsty, of course). It’s probably because wine is so narrative-based and just plain dynamic. Because it involves everything from farming to fraud and relies on good stories to be successful, wine is an ideal muse for filmmakers. Here are a few flicks worth uncorking.(Need a bottle to pop while you’re watching? Why not a nice rosé?)Sideways (2004)This fantastic 2004 film immortalized Paul Giamatti as the ultimate DIY wine critic. It stunted the growth of American Merlot and boosted Pinot Noir. It taught us how to commit tomfoolery in the vineyard and create a scene in the tasting room. And it reminded us that wine is fun, in addition to being something we can obsess over. The movie is a dark comedy at heart, making it all the more human and compelling. If you need some inspiration for a reflective weekend in wine country, Sideways has you covered. SOMM (2012)SOMM portrays the neurotic side of the wine industry. The cast of the documentary is comprised of wine professionals in the hunt for the holy grail of the trade: Master Sommelier certification. Largely considered one of the hardest tests to pass on the planet, the process is rigorous, sleepless, and downright fascinating. Those of you with halfway decent palates will be moved to at least host the occasional tasting event or maybe even switch careers altogether. And if you like the original, the sequels are worth a viewing. Sour Grapes (2016)This 2016 film shadows Rudy Kurniawan as he duped winos out of millions of dollars. His wine fraud campaign involved fake bottles from world famous houses, made all the more intriguing by Kurniawan’s smooth-talking, insider-icon ways. More than anything, this movie shows the absurd side of wine and how wildly subjective it can be. So much so that it can land prominent industry figures in jail. A Year in Champagne (2014)Incredibly French and steeped in wine romance, this movie tracks the allure and complexity of Champagne, the original sparkling wine. It’s a nice primer on how the stuff is made and the inherent drama of growing high-stakes fruit amid whatever Mother Nature feels like throwing at you. And it will compel you to start sabering sparkling more often.Bottle Shock (2008)Bottle Shock is a funny film which revolves around the famous “Judgment of Paris” wine competition of 1976. The contest is largely credited for kickstarting the American wine machine as it involved domestic wines going toe-to-toe with some of the best Old World labels out there. Plus, it features Bill Pullman and the late and great Alan Rickman and focuses on the cozy, somewhat nostalgic version of the Napa Valley, circa the 1970s.

Churchill Downs Duds The Best Kentucky Derby Mens Outfits of 2019

first_imgOne of the best things about The Kentucky Derby (aside from the day drinking and the possibility of winning some cash on a preposterous bet) is the fact that it comes on the first Saturday in May every year, rain or shine. This means, for the sartorially minded gentleman, there’s a whole year of deliberation to get your Derby look just right.Jeffrey Brown/Icon Sportswire via Getty ImagesThis year (like many in the recent past), it rained at Churchill Downs, and all those pre-planned pastels, pinstripes, seersucker, and linen suits were either covered in plastic ponchos or soaked through (mad props to the gentleman below for his clear plastic poncho, allowing for his perfect Derby suit to still be visible). Top that off with the controversy over which horse actually won – Maximum Security lost due to a disqualification, leaving the winner’s circle open for the delightfully named Country House – and you’ve got a race for the ages.So, forget the dispute for a little while and focus on things a little more sartorial. Here are the best men’s outfits from Kentucky Derby 2019, featuring an assortment of suiting styles and accessories. Let these guys be your guide for next year’s Derby duds.The Best Men’s Looks from the 145th Kentucky DerbyJeffrey Brown/Icon Sportswire via Getty ImagesKevin Richardson of Backstreet Boys fame brought it with this perfect Derby look. Cream pants contrast with a deep, dark blue blazer, a gray vest, blue and white-striped shirt (with matching pocket square) and tie. Topping it off is the quintessential derby hat.effrey Brown/Icon Sportswire via Getty ImagesThe 70s were strong with Wilmer Valderrama on Derby day with this style swerve. A tan-gray suit (with pleated pants!) is offset with a light, white shirt with floral pattern. The dark shades and dark shoes pair perfectly with one of the more sedate outfits we saw at the 145th Kentucky Derby.Stephen J. Cohen/Getty ImagesDavid Allen Grier turned up in a blue-gray, subtly-patterned suit, a tiny cheque pink print shirt, and coordinating magenta and purple tie. Like many men at the 2019 race, he also capped off his look with a derby hat.Michael Locissano/Getty Images for Churchill DownsTom Brady went with a classic striped shirt, khaki, and pocket square, only he opted for black rather than a classic Derby pastel. Jimmy Garoppolo, on the other hand, opted for a pale pink shirt with pink madras print blazer.Hopefully Louisville rapper, Jack Harlow, won’t be making any circuits around the infield, because white and mud do not mix. But we love the bombast of this white suit and blood-red shirt and tie, reminiscent of the Derby’s white and red color scheme.Michael Loccisano/Getty Images for Churchill DownsBlue suede shoes and a blue blazer with matching checkered tie, with complimentary yellow hat makes former football player Warren Moon’s outfit one of the simplest, though stylish, that we saw.Jeffrey Brown/Icon Sportswire via Getty ImagesProfessional Lacrosse player, Paul Rabil passed on the derby hat and opted for a fedor instead. Standing in a pair of gray suede boots (with patterned socks), a blue and black patterned suit, plain white shirt, and blue tie with money clip, Rabil looks the classic derby part … until you get to his orange belt – which is the simple pop of color that derby style aficionados swoon over.Michael Loccisano/Getty Images for Churchill DownWhile Justin Sutherland nailed his derby outfit by going pink, pastel, and bow-tied beautiful, chef Pablo Lamon went a little too formal and stuffy for this occasion. Lamon’s black lapel-ed maroon jacket and black bow-tie are too somber for this more light-color oriented event.Michael Loccisano/Getty Images for Churchill DownsBode Miller slides through the crowds in one of the boxes at the 145th Kentucky Derby. His blue windowpane checkered suit, paired with a pale pink tie and shirt blend in with the rest of the crowd, while still sticking out (in a good way).If you need some additional Kentucky Derby men’s outfit inspiration, check out this guide to seersucker and you’ll be prepped and ready come Derby Day ’20.

How to Shuck Oysters the Right Way

first_img The Best Leg Exercises for Sculpted Calves, Quads, and More Here at The Manual, we cast a pretty wide net on what oceanic treats we love (read: all of them, all of the time), but oysters hold a special place in our hearts. Whether it’s enjoying an oyster shooter (or five), popping a bottle of bubbly and going to town on a dozen Kumamotos, or cooked into a dish like Oysters Rockefeller, we can’t help but love them.Oysters, though … well, they take a little work. You can’t just buy oysters and be good to go. If they’re fresh, you’ve got to shuck them before you can eat them. This may seem like a gargantuan task, but it’s really not.To find out the best way to shuck an oyster, we teamed up with Toadfish Outfitters — a South Carolina-based company that produces ergonomic and aesthetically pleasing line of oyster knives, shrimp deveiners, and more — and The Macintosh, one of the best restaurants in Charleston.We’ve included detailed instructions on how to shuck oysters below, but check out the video above to see the technique in action.How to Shuck OystersTo get started, stand up in front of a table and place a long, horizontal washcloth in front of you. Roll the side of your non-dominant hand backward until it forms a plush roll.Grab an oyster and hold it belly down. An oyster is a bivalve (Latin for two bones), which is pretty indicative of its shape. There are two sides to the oyster shell. The one with a bigger curve is the belly, so you’ll hold that side on the bottom with your dominant hand.There is a natural separation point on the side where you’ll insert your shucking knife. Place the oyster on the washcloth so it’s side-to-side with the rolled washcloth – separation point on the opposite side of the roll. Put your non-dominant hand over the shell and with the other place your shucking knife into the separation point. The butt of the handle should go directly into the center of your palm, and fold your fingers around the rest. Never grip sideways.Slowly, but with pressure (about 3-4 pounds), wiggle the knife into the natural separation point to break the ligament. The break is the most difficult part, and it takes 20-30 oysters to really get a feel for it. If you’re wondering why you use the washcloth starting out, it’s to protect your hand in the event that the knife misses the oyster and slices you. So don’t get brave when you’re starting out.After the ligament is broken, you’ll clean the abductor muscle from the top shell by weaving the knife across the opening toward you. During this step, you’ll want to run the knife over the top of the oyster.Now the top should be off. Take your shucking knife and, in one full scooping motion, cut the bottom of the oyster. Drop the shucker, dress it to your liking, and down that baby!(Once you get this shucking technique down, why not learn how to grill oysters, too?)Tips and Tools for Shucking OystersKeep in mind, the most dangerous part of shucking isn’t cutting yourself with the knife, but cutting through the shell and into your hand and getting shell fragments into your blood. If you accidentally eat some shell fragments, it’s no sweat. That’s because our digestive system and blood system are very different. When these fragments get into your bloodstream, it can’t control the bacteria, and without attention, you could end up losing some of your fingers to sepsis. In the event of this happening, clean up the wound ASAP with alcohol.Another surprise you may encounter while shucking oysters is opening a shell to find a little crab living inside. This is common, especially on the East Coast. What happened here is that, while the oyster was under water opening and closing to filter water, phytoplankton, and microalgae, a crab forced its way in and decided to stay. But don’t be alarmed. Scoop out the crab with your knife and continue on your way.Like we said, it should take you roughly 20-30 oysters to really get the muscle memory. And we recommend trying a variety of types. Some will be easier to open than others and nearly all will taste different due to the variance of phytoplankton and microalgae found in different bodies of water. Once you have it down, it’s extremely sexy. Better than driving stick or playing football.If you need some shucking tools, check out Toadfish’s full lineup here. As an added benefit to their utility, each purchase from Toadfish contributes to environmental causes that help preserve the coastal lands, ensuring that the next generation will also get to reap the beauty and benefits of the area.Article originally published by Jahla Seppanen on April 17, 2017.

Go For An Arty Seaside Stroll On Kobes Museum Road

first_imgThe Museum Road in Kobe connects the central part of the city to the north and south. The road is dotted with numerous pieces of public art along the way, making it a must-see sightseeing spot for art aficionados. In Part 1, we introduced the segment of Museum Road running from Hanshin Iwaya Station to the Hyogo Prefectural Art Museum. This time, we’ll head past the museum and out to the road that runs along the sea.Ossip Zadkine, “Residence” SculptureNot far from the museum to the east, you can find Russia-born French artist Ossip Zadkine’s bronze sculpture, “Residence.” You could say that the sight of children skipping rope next to a sculpture embodies the ideal of public art spaces.Take the right path and head toward the sea.Sadamasa Motonaga’s “Whirling Yellow” The piece that suddenly made its presence known above the lawn is Sadamasa Motonaga’s artwork “Whirling Yellow.” A symbolic figure in Japan’s post-war art scene, Motonaga was a member of the Gutai art group that receives both domestic and international attention even today.Sadamasa Motonaga’s “Yellow Blue” While simple, this powerful piece by Motonaga, called “Yellow Blue,” is three meters tall. Viewed directly from the front, it looks like kanji for “person.”Susumu Shingu’s “Faraway Rhythm” The impressive red wings of “Faraway Rhythm,” shining against the blue sky, were created by Susumu Shingu, world-famous for his three-dimensional artwork that makes use of wind and water.Hour by hour, the four wings change their formation, and look different depending on the angle. Enjoy the randomness created by time and space.A Must-See! Kenji Yanobe’s “Sun Sister”Kenji Yanobe’s “Sun Sister,” a steel frame clad in fiber-reinforced plastic and stainless steelKenji Yanobe’s “Sun Sister,” located at the bottom of the steps on the south side of the art museum, symbolizes the hopes of the future.Nicknamed “Nagisa,” the Sun Sister has the shining sun clutched in her right hand.Nagisa means “seaside” in Japanese, appropriate for the Sun Sister’s location looking out onto the sea.On a sunny day, we recommend relaxing on the art museum’s southern steps as you gaze at the harbor scenery.We’ve introduced the public art available for you to peruse on Kobe’s Museum Road. These are public installations, so you can take as many pictures as you like. By all means, take photos of the unique structures and ideas and use them as sketch inspirations, or use the area as a place to meet up.

Mentsuyu is a seasoning that can be used in a variety of foods to enhance the flavor. In particular, it is known as a delicious dipping sauce for soba noodles.Mayumi-san continued,”This mentsuyu has been traditionally made by all the grandmothers living in the local area. When I was a child I used mentsuyu daily and didn’t think twice about it. But when I visited my parents’ home after being away and had some again, I experienced how fresh and delicious the taste really was.” A Fascinating And Friendly Souvenir ShopKagoshima Prefecture’s Kirishima is a renowned hot springs area that is just a 20-minute bus ride from Kagoshima Airport.Located in the nearby mountains and accessible only by car is a popular souvenir and gift shop that continually attracts visitors.In fact, people usually spend upwards of one hour here. What is it about this shop that charms and fascinates everyone so much?Today we introduce Kirin Shoten, a souvenir shop that is one of the most popular spots in the Kirishima area.Would You Like a Cup of Tea? Kirishima is surrounded by nature, and fresh, pure water runs through the local mountains. This helps with the cultivation of fresh and delicious vegetables and other food.The people in Kirishima take for granted how tasty and fresh the locally grown food is. But it really is amazing! I’d like everyone to know how wonderful these food and products are. I also want people to know how warm and friendly the people who grow them are.The Sugikawa’s main line of work in design and illustration. Though these foods are grown not by themselves but by the local farmers, the couple believes that they can convey how special these Kirishima products really are to the public.They opened the shop in Kirishima with this in mind.Kirin, the word attached to the shop’s name, originates from the Kirishima word yokamon (*2).*2 yokamon: means good things in the Kagoshima Japanese dialect. Once you enter the shop, you will see a selection of lovely handmade products. While browsing through the merchandise here, you will probably notice a tall man chatting with customers.”Kabosu (a type of citrus fruit) are very delicious and we’ve just started picking them.””If you use this garlic and stir-fry it with pork, it tastes great!””This wallet was handmade by a local artisan. It’s a nice color, isn’t it?”The man talking, Akihiro Sugikawa, is the shop owner of Kirin Shoten.He approached us and asked,”Would you like some tea? I just finished brewing a pot.” Kagoshima is home to a local custom called chaippe. Chaippe means one cup of green tea.When someone visits your home, it’s customary to serve them tea and some snacks. This is done in order to make visitors feel relaxed and comfortable and is a common practice in the Kagoshima area.Mayumi-san’s mother apparently serves tea and sometimes even a meal when people visit, all while managing the tea factory.”When I was a young, I remember feeling embarrassed when I saw my mother serving a meal to a visitor. But now I think it was such a neat thing to do!Unfortunately, we can’t go as far as serving complimentary meals here, but we do strive to offer some warm hospitality to our visitors, just like my mother did,” says Mayumi-san.

Sweet potato shochu is part of Kagoshima’s very own famous game.This business card holder, including the nanko game, sells for 3,500 yen (before tax).Freshly Baked Local Bread During the interview at this Kirin Shoten, the shop was lively and filled with customers, and with the sounds of conversation and laughter.While watching over the atmosphere of his shop, Akihiro-san told us: The managers of the shop are Akihiro Sugikawa and his wife, Mayumi-san.They were both born in Kagoshima prefecture, with Mayumi-san originally from Kirishima. The couple previously worked in Fukuoka, but whenever Mayumi-san went back to her parents’ home in Kagoshima, she felt dissatisfied about Kirishima not having any local souvenirs.Although she wanted to take back some souvenirs to Fukuoka with her, Kirishima didn’t really have any for her to do so. Kirishima is a famous hot springs area, but there were not many souvenirs.Mayumi-san commented,”When people bought souvenirs in Kirishima, the only thing available was onsen manju (*1).However, when I looked at the label of the onsen manju sold here, it listed that it was made in a different place and not in Kirishima. I felt extremely disappointed because this area has so many wonderful things to offer!”*1 onsen manju: manju is a variety of wagashi (Japanese sweets) filled with anko (red bean paste). Onsen manju is technically classified as manju baked by the steam from the hot spring, but in the broader sense it usually just refers to manju sold at an onsen. These wallets have a handmade feel to them and are called dochu zaifu. During the Edo period, people would often carry these wallets when they set off on a trip or an outing.Made out of cloth and bound together with string, they are ideal to take on a walk.Today people often carry them when going to festivals or other events. When paired with a yukata or kimono, they look really cool and stylish.They can also be for everyday use as well. They retail from 1,600 yen and up (before tax).Buy a Business Card Case and Enjoy a Local Game A children’s fishing pond is outside the store. This was built with the intent of giving children an opportunity to have various kinds of hands-on experiences.Creating Local Kirishima Souvenirs Our writer especially recommends the business card holder. This item isn’t simply a card holder. It also allows you to play nanko, a local game popular in Kagoshima. Nanko is a game with simple rules.

DUSU polls HC refers to Jaitley while asking DU not to be

first_imgNew Delhi: Former Union Minister Arun Jaitley, who passed away on Saturday, came in for mention in the Delhi High Court which observed on Monday that the country gets great leaders from students leaders and the university authorities should not be too harsh on them for their activities during students union elections. It stated this in its oral observations soon after dictating its order directing authorities to initiate civil and criminal action against candidates of Delhi University Students Union polls responsible for defacement of property. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderThe court, which was dealing with a matter relating to defacement of public property during DUSU polls in 2017, said such things happen in polls. “Don’t be too harsh on them. Don’t put ban on everything. From student leaders, we sometime get great leaders for the country. You know the examples, you must have seen it yesterday,” a bench of Chief Justice D N Patel and Justice C Hari Shankar said, in an apparent reference to Jaitley. Jaitley was an Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) student activist at Delhi University in the 1970s and became President of the University Students Union in 1974. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsThe BJP stalwart died on August 24 at the All India Medical Institute of Sciences (AIIMS) where he was undergoing treatment following multiple ailments. The court passed certain directions and disposed of a PIL by lawyer Prashant Manchanda, seeking a complete ban on defacement of public properties by the Delhi University Students Union (DUSU) poll candidates. While dictating its order, asked the authorities to inform student leaders and union about the guidelines framed for regulating election campaigning for the student body polls to prevent defacement in future. The bench said the students should be warned about the orders passed by the court and thereafter, civil and criminal action should be initiated against those involved in damaging public or private properties, as per law. The petitioner had earlier placed before the court a ‘status report’ giving names of 15 persons who were involved in destruction of public and private property through use of spray paints and other means of defacement during the process of DUSU election in 2017. The court asked the Centre, the university and the police to keep in mind the last year’s direction to ensure there was no defacement of public property during the DUSU elections and wide publicity be given to penal consequences of such actions. The high court had earlier said prevention of defacement of property during student body polls in the DU was more important than taking action against candidates after they indulge in such activity. The court had suggested putting in place deterrents like disqualification of candidates to prevent defacement of property during the student body polls. It had also issued directions to the municipal corporations to be “vigilant” and remove any temporary hoarding or banner put up illegally without due caution and also take penal action, as such structures could result in harm to someone’s life.last_img read more

Family wants to know why daughter left alone to film her suicide

first_imgKenneth Jackson APTN NewsA Poplar Hill First Nation family is struggling to find answers as to how their 15-year-old daughter was left alone to film her suicide in a Sioux Lookout foster home.Kanina Sue Turtle died by suicide Oct. 29, 2016 and recorded it on her iPod. She had tried the day before as well, and had several incidents of self-harm in the weeks prior, according to her parents.But somehow Kanina was left alone in a backroom of a foster home in Sioux Lookout for about 45 minutes before a worker came to check on her.It was far too late by then.“Why didn’t she check on her every five minutes?” said Barbara Suggashie, Kanina’s mother, in a telephone interview with APTN News from her home in Poplar Hill near the Ontario/Manitoba border.Related: Three First Nations girls died in Ontario group homes in last 6 monthsAPTN was shown the video, which is about an hour long, by the family’s lawyer, who confirmed that on the video the child had bruising consistent with another recent attempt to harm herself.On the video the worker comes into the room and says what sounds like “Kanina, take my hand.”She then lays Kanina on the floor, which isn’t visible in the video, and leaves the room. She returns quickly talking on a cellphone with emergency personnel. She also appears to try to resuscitate Kanina by pumping air into her lungs with a plastic device.But it’s futile. Too much time has passed.“She’s gone,” the woman says as a baby can be heard crying from another room.Within minutes sirens are heard and paramedics arrive.“No pulse,” one of them is heard saying.Kanina Sue Turtle. Facebook photo.Suggashie said she has been trying to find out what happened but said Tikinagan Child and Family Services, the agency that oversaw Kanina’s removal from the home, hasn’t told her much.“They said she was a suicidal,” said Suggashie.There are supervision orders that can be made, such as one-to-one care in group homes, meaning a worker is with the child 24-hours a day.APTN asked Tikinagan if this was the case with Kanina, as there was a second video on her iPod. Kanina had tried to kill herself the day before in the bush. She also had multiple scars from self-harming, according to her family, which doesn’t necessarily mean a person is suicidal, but all the warning signs were there said Suggashie.“Thank you for reaching out to Tikinagan. We will not be able to respond to your questions by 5 p.m. today,” said spokesperson Irene Dube. “At this time, we are respecting the privacy of the family.”APTN advised in a follow-up email that both parents were already interviewed, so there was no privacy to disrespect. Tikinagan did not reply to that email.APTN also tried to get answers from Ontario’s Ministry of Children and Youth Services that was asked about the level of supervision and what, if any, actions were taken against the foster home following the death.“We take the safety of children and youth in care very seriously. The loss of a young person in our province is a tragedy,” said spokesperson Genevieve Oger. “Our thoughts are with the family, caregivers, and support workers of this young person during this difficult time.”APTN immediately followed up by email saying the incident happened 16 months ago and the family wanted answers. The Ministry did not reply to that email.On the video the foster home worker gives the 911 operator the home’s telephone number. APTN called that number Wednesday and reached a woman who said to call Tikinagan and immediately provided its number in Thunder Bay.APTN explained the family wanted to know why their daughter was left alone but the woman hung up. APTN followed up with text messages but never got a response.Suggashie can’t help but wonder what’s going on.“They’re hiding something,” she said. “(Tikinagan) didn’t want to talk to me about it all.”When APTN first spoke to Suggashie last April she didn’t believe her daughter killed herself, or at least couldn’t bring herself to believe it.Then a couple months later her husband Clarence Suggashie said the police returned some of Kanina’s belongings, including the iPod. They told him about the video on it and said they weren’t able to see it themselves as they didn’t know the password to the iPod.Clarence said they were able to figure out the password and finally saw the video for themselves.He said Barbara never lets the device out of her sight and even sleeps with it.Barbara said it’s because she believes it tells the truth of what happened, even if she doesn’t know it all yet.“I’m not going to let go of this … of what really happened,” she said. “I really want to know why she did it.”She remembers seeing her daughter about a week before she died. She took her shopping and gave Kanina $140 to buy clothes. She ended up buying stuff for her siblings.Whenever Barbara is in Sioux Lookout she goes by to see the house.She can’t bring herself to go to the door.“I only see it from the outside,” she said. “She’s still there.”kjackson@aptn.calast_img read more

GM seeks to avoid Takata recalls for fourth straight year

DETROIT — General Motors is trying to avoid recalling potentially deadly Takata air bag inflators in thousands of full-size pickup trucks and SUVs for the fourth straight year, leaving owners to wonder if vehicles are safe to drive.The automaker petitioned the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to exempt it from recalls that were required under a 2015 agreement between Takata and the government.Takata inflators can explode with too much force, blowing apart a metal canister and spewing shrapnel.Twenty-four people have been killed by the inflators worldwide.GM’s petition asking to escape the recalls was posted Wednesday in the Federal Register. It says the inflators are unique to GM and are safe.The Associated Press read more

Promotion of minority rights critical in Sri Lanka says UN

During her ten-day mission, the human rights expert will visit Colombo as well as other locations in the Northern, North Central, Eastern and Central Provinces to meet with minority communities to hear directly from them about their issues and concerns. The Special Rapporteur will also meet with a wide range of other stakeholders, including State authorities, the National Human Rights Commission and civil society actors. The Special Rapporteur will present her preliminary findings and recommendations at a press conference to be held on Thursday 20 October 2016, at 2 pm, at the UN Conference Room, United Nations Compound, 202-204, Bauddhaloka Mawatha, Colombo 7. Access to the press conference is strictly limited to journalists.Ms. Izsák-Ndiaye will present her full report on the mission to the UN Human Rights Council in March 2017. (Colombo Gazette) “Considering the long-standing grievances that were at the roots of the 25-year civil war in Sri Lanka, any efforts towards accountability and reconciliation must include a careful examination of the extent to which the rights of minorities are protected and promoted in the country,” Ms. Izsák-Ndiaye said. The United Nations Special Rapporteur on minority issues, Rita Izsák-Ndiaye, will carry out an official visit to Sri Lanka from 10 to 20 October 2016 to assess the current situation of national or ethnic, religious and linguistic minorities in the country.“Experience has shown that the recognition and promotion of minority rights are critical, if not requisite, in achieving long-lasting peace and reconciliation, particularly in countries such as Sri Lanka that were once divided by ethnic conflicts,” noted the independent expert tasked by the UN Human Rights Council to monitor, report and advise in the field of minority rights globally. Ms Izsák-Ndiaye, who visits Sri Lanka at the invitation of the Government, noted: “While I recognise the important advances made since the new administration was sworn in last year, the Government still faces immense challenges in terms of fostering unity, non-discrimination, peace and understanding among groups in the country.”“My visit is intended to assist the Government and the Sri Lankan society at large in identifying challenges and solutions, as well as sharing experiences at this critical time for Sri Lanka,” she added. read more

ABCP settlement cheques for eligible investors to be mailed in March regulators

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by The Canadian Press Posted Mar 21, 2013 1:05 pm MDT ABCP settlement cheques for eligible investors to be mailed in March: regulators TORONTO – Millions of dollars worth of cheques will be soon be mailed to eligible investors who bought asset-backed commercial paper through certain Canadian investment firms shortly before the market for the securities collapsed in 2007.According to the regulators overseeing the process, cheques worth a total of nearly $60 million plus accrued interest will be sent to eligible investors who bought the investments.Asset-backed commercial paper, or ABCP, was seen as a conservative short-term investment until mid-2007 when about $32 billion of asset-backed commercial paper became frozen.The problems arose amid fears that some of the paper was backed by U.S. sub-prime mortgages, at a time when defaults on that type of debt began to soar.The cheques are from a settlement process overseen by the Ontario Securities Association and the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada.They announced Thursday that Ernst & Young, which was appointed to administer the distributions, began sending out notifications this week.The money comes from five Canadian financial institutions that reached settlements in 2009 with the two financial market regulators.Scotia Capital (TSX:BNS) agreed to pay $28.95 million, CIBC (TSX:CM) paid $21.8 million, HSBC Canada agreed to $5.93 million, Canaccord Financial Ltd. (TSX:CF) $3.1 million and Credential Securities Inc. $200,000. read more

IMechE to hold seminar on ITS

The Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) has organised a one-day seminar on 15 April 2010 to examine the engineering and technological challenges created by developing and deploying an Intelligent Transport System (ITS) service in the UK, and to share solutions to these challenges. With presentations by leading figures in the ITS industry, this event will provide a comprehensive update on the latest developments and technologies in delivering ITS to the UK.Intelligent Transport Systems apply information and communication technology to transport. It is based on the fundamental principle of integrating intelligent vehicles and intelligent infrastructure with active driver interaction and legislation support, with the goal of improving overall safety and security to travellers, relieving congestion, reducing emissions and enhancing national productivity. Examples of ITS applications include collision avoidance and mitigation, vulnerable road user detection and traffic management. Much of the technology needed to deliver safer, efficient and intelligent transport systems is already in existence in the UK. The seminar will explore the full development and deployment timeline of ITS services. The event’s attendee list includes heads of transportation, system managers and planners, senior engineers, road safety inspectors and infrastructure professionals. IMechE invites SMMT members to exhibit at a discounted rate.

Dundee – Chelopech and growth

first_imgDundee Precious Metals is a Canadian based, international mining company engaged in the acquisition, exploration, development and mining of precious metals. It currently owns Chelopech, a producing gold/copper mine, and the Krumovgrad gold project, a mining development project, both located in Bulgaria, and is engaged in exploration in Serbia. The Operations Focus of IM’s October issue will be a detailed look at Chelopech, which John Chadwick visited last week.   Previously an underdeveloped and undercapitalized mine, Chelopech is located 65 km from Sofia, Bulgaria’s capital city. When DPM acquired the Chelopech mine in 2003, it was a gold/copper mine with recurring financial losses, a mill in reasonable shape but a mining fleet in poor condition and a low morale amongst the staff due to broken promises of badly needed cash for mine upgrades. In 2004, DPM put together a comprehensive plan to develop the project in two phases.  Phase I of the expansion involved ramping up annual production to 1.5 Mt by 2006 while Phase II included the installation of an autoclave for metal production at site by 2007.  The autoclave technology constitutes the best environmental alternative to treatment of the arsenic in the concentrate produced at Chelopech while at the same time optimized costs by virtually eliminating concentrate transportation expenses, third party treatment charges and penalties. In August 2005, the DPM decided to increase the scope of the autoclave and mine expansion to 2 Mt/y of ore. Chelopech is now Bulgaria’s flagship mine. The country has a long tradition of mining with little mechanisation, but this revitalized operation is replacing all its underground trackwork, fully embracing trackless mining (with a comprehensive Sandvik fleet of drills, LHDs and trucks), developing a ramp system from surface and introducing the advanced metallurgical techniques. Dundee Precious Metals (DPM) has completed the transaction with Kinross Gold to purchase a 100% interest in Kinross’ George Lake and Goose Lake properties (the ‘Back River Project’), located in Nunavut, Canada for $6 million.  “Our Back River team has been working hard in the previous months incorporating all historical exploration information into one database and, with this acquisition, they are now in a position to expedite the implementation of the exploration program for this year,” said Jonathan Goodman, President and CEO of DPM. “In addition, our Canadian exploration group is nearing completion of the updated resource estimate that will allow us to evaluate other exploration targets on the properties,” he added. They are located 520 km northeast of Yellowknife and comprise a total of 45 Crown leases and one mineral claim making up six distinct properties covering some 390 km2 of prospective terrain.  last_img read more

Microsoft stops offering Xbox Live Gold Family Packs without warning

first_imgHaving an Xbox 360 under your TV allows entertainment to be accessible by all the family. But that usually means you want an Xbox Live account for each person rather than trying to share one. It also inevitably means paying for multiple Gold accounts every year.Microsoft eased that burden back in 2010 by introducing the Xbox Live Gold Family Pack. For $100 you got four Gold accounts that could be shared on a single console or split across multiple machines if you so wished. It offered a significant saving over the typical $40 per Gold account annual subscription. Other benefits included being able to monitor activity, restrict access for kids, and allocate Microsoft Points to each account. All invaluable features for parents.Unfortunately, the option of a Family Pack has now disappeared all of a sudden. For some reason Microsoft has decided to stop offering it, literally overnight, and without warning. Anyone trying to sign up for a new account or renew an existing Family Pack is being denied the option, and Microsoft is so far offering no explanation as to why this decision has been taken.Were the Family Pack accounts not popular enough? Or does this point to a big change coming to the Xbox Live system when the Xbox 720 is launched? Maybe these family controls will be built into the new Xbox Live, and maybe Microsoft has a new way it wants to handle family accounts that the old way of doing things didn’t support?It’s unlikely we’ll find out until the Xbox 720 is unveiled, which could be as early as April, or we might be left waiting until E3.last_img read more

Group Worries Chemicals In Drinking Water More Widespread Than Reported

first_imgTexas faired better than other states in a survey of potentially-toxic chemicals in drinking water, but the group behind the research says the chemicals may be more widespread than what’s been reported.The Environmental Working Group has put out a nationwide map of where fluorinated chemicals have been in found in drinking water, as documented in part by the Environmental Protection Agency.Steve Johnson via Flickr (CC BY 2.0)These chemicals have been used to make everything from clothes to cooking pans. Companies started phasing them out in the early 2000’s, though some are still around.Bill Walker, Managing Editor for the group behind the survey, argues the EPA’s reporting requirements are too high. “There may be lots of contamination out there that didn’t meet their threshold, but nonetheless is at the level that the best science says is actually problematic,” he says. When contamination gets above 70 parts per trillion, drinking water managers are supposed to notify the state and follow up. Only Port Lavaca and Abilene made the list in Texas. According to this survey, the highest level found in the state was 51 parts per trillion.“The levels that are set by the EPA or the state, we feel that in a lot of cases they’re just truly not fully protective of public health,” Walker says. The EPA says most people have been exposed to these chemicals, but in small amounts. While the environmental group points to studies suggesting that’s still a problem, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the effects of low-level exposure are unknown, and more research is needed. 00:00 /01:18 To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: X Listen Sharelast_img read more

Art space

first_imgMobel Grace in collaboration with Gallery Stupa 18 present Jugalbandi – an art exhibition that brings together paintings and art inspired furniture. The artists who are part of the show include Sudhir Tailang, Alka Raghuvanshi, Vilas Kulkarni, Shridhar Iyer, Manisha Gawade, Partha Sengupta, Anita Kulkarni and Ranjit Singh. The show is on from March 20 to April 15 at 343 Sultanpur, near Pillar NO 28-B, Sultanpur Metro Station in the Capital.The show is a jugalbandi of furniture and paintings as they co-exist together in our spaces.  “Art used in private and public spaces in residences and offices must have a balance of aesthetics so that their common link is visible. Paintings are integral part of interior designing and we strongly recommend it. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’“In this show we have tried juxtaposing them together so that the two can be viewed in unison and we have chosen art works that speak the same language as our furniture,” says the interior designer Meenakshi Goyal and director Mobel Grace. “The artists featured in this show all believe that the elements of paintings and furniture work in tandem to bestow a unique character to space. Alka Raghuvanshi’s vibrant and metallic colours add grandeur to the space. Anita Kulkarni’s works showcase passionately flowing colours which breaks the monotony of straight lined walls. Manisha Gawade’s lingering and bold lines blended with sophisticated colours hold the viewers thoughts,” says Varsha Bansal, director of Gallery Stupa 18. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixSimilarly Shridhar Iyer’s elegance radiates energy and blends with the space wonderfully. Vilas Kulkarni unifies the traditional as well as modern to compliment the natural shades of the space. Sudhir Tailang’s pithy drawings are perfect for the study and coffee table area where one can ponder upon life experiences. Ranjeet Singh’s paintings capture the expression of children portrayed in bright hues. Partha Sengupta’s bold and expressive countenances are energetic and reflect people’s personality. “Art has a universal language that it can be experienced by all those who view it. Given India’s vast history and culture of paintings dating back to cave paintings from Bhimbetka they are an integral element to energise spaces – be they work arenas or home spaces.  “Art can either be a statement or can blend sympathetically with a room’s design and colour palette. It is a way of personalizing a space,” says Deepak Goyal, the managing director Mobel Grace.last_img read more

Construction Spending Weakens in September

first_img Share in Daily Dose, Data, Government, Headlines, News November 3, 2014 544 Views Construction Spending Weakens in Septembercenter_img Spending on construction projects fell across the United States for a second straight month in September, spurring a decline in analysts’ expectations for economic growth in Q3.The Commerce Department reported Monday that construction spending throughout September came in at an estimated seasonally adjusted annual rate of $950.9 billion, down 0.4 percent from August but up 2.9 percent from a year ago.Year-to-date through September, the government estimates total construction outlays came to $710.1 billion, an increase of 6.1 percent over the same period last year.In a note to clients, Patrick Newport and Stephanie Karol, U.S. economists at IHS, called September’s release “another disappointing report—and after adjusting for inflation, this report looks even more dismal.””We expect that third-quarter real GDP will be revised down to 3.4 percent [from an original estimate of 3.5 percent] based on this report,” they continued.Among the good news in Monday’s report was a 0.4 percent bump in spending on residential projects, which totaled an adjusted annual rate of $354.8 billion.A small portion of that increase came from private homebuilding outlays. According to the Commerce Department, private residential construction building was at a rate of $349.1 billion in September, up 0.4 percent month-over-month. Spending on single-family housing climbed 1.1 percent to $192.5 billion, while spending for multifamily projects fell 1 percent to $43.3 billion.Across all categories, spending on private, nonresidential projects was down 0.6 percent for the month to a rate of just less than $331 billion.In the public sector, the government estimates spending on home construction was up 4.7 percent from August at a rate of $5.8 billion.

March 23 2015 12:21 am Within the BJP and its mentor the RSS the debate on whether or not to oppose VP Singh and OBC reservations reached a high pitch Related News It was a blunder on VP Singh’s part to announce his acceptance of the Mandal Commission’s report recommending 27 per cent reservations in government jobs for what are called Other Backward Classes but are in fact specified castes — economically well-off politically powerful but socially and educationally backward — in such hot haste He knew that the issue was highly controversial deeply emotive and potentially explosive which it proved to be instantly But his top priority was to outsmart his former deputy and present adversary Devi Lal He even annoyed those whose support “from outside” was sustaining him in power BJP leaders were peeved that they were informed of what was afoot practically at the last minute in a terse telephone call What annoyed them even more was that the prime minister’s decision would divide Hindu society The BJP’s ranks demanded that the plug be pulled on VP Singh but the top leadership advised restraint because it was also important to keep the Congress out of power The party leadership was aware of the electoral clout of the OBCs who added up to 52 per cent of the population As for Rajiv Gandhi he was totally and vehemently opposed to the Mandal Commission and its report He eloquently condemned VP Singh’s decision when it was eventually discussed in Parliament This can be better understood in the perspective of the Mandal Commission’s history Having acquired wealth during the Green Revolution and political power through elections the OBCs realised that they had little share in the country’s administrative apparatus especially in the higher rungs of the bureaucracy So they started clamouring for reservations in government jobs Throughout the Congress rule until 1977 this demand fell on deaf ears It was the Janata government headed by Morarji Desai that appointed the Mandal Commission in 1978 Ironically by the time the commission submitted its report the Janata was history and Indira Gandhi was back in power She quietly consigned the document to the deep freeze In Rajiv’s time one of his cabinet ministers Shiv Shanker once asked about the Mandal report Rajiv said nothing but gave him a glance that was silencing Later he confided to some of his aides: “The Mandal Commission’s report is a can of worms and I am not going to open it” When VP Singh did take the plunge Rajiv said to one of his former aides: “VP Singh is the most divisive man after Muhammad Ali Jinnah” While the Congress stand remained consistent within the BJP and its mentor the RSS the debate on whether or not to oppose VP Singh and OBC reservations reached a high pitch One section insisted that both must be opposed without delay The other argued that it would be impolitic to reject something that was being seen as an extension of affirmative action to backward classes In the end it was decided not to take any position but to “shift the terms of political debate from Mandal and caste to religion by resurrecting the old crusade for the construction of Ram temple at Ayodhya at the site where still stood the Babri masjid for this was Lord Ram’s birthplace” The BJP’s plan this time around was that its president L K Advani should embark on a rath yatra or a march from the ancient temple of Somnath in Gujarat to Ayodhya in a Toyota van fitted to look like a chariot of yore It was also made clear that when the march reached its destination in about five weeks karsevaks (volunteers) would start building the Ram temple with the consecrated bricks that had already been carried there The march began on September 25 VP Singh was worried that LK Advani’s yatra being very provocative might lead to communal violence But he also felt that to stop or arrest the BJP leader would be counterproductive For his part Advani on reaching Delhi stayed there for several days daring the prime minister to arrest him But the challenge was ducked As the yatra reached the Hindi heartland tension mounted and sporadic riots started taking place for two reasons: The aggressiveness of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad’s militants escorting the rath and the tone of Advani’s speeches at every halt in which he accused the government of “appeasing” the Muslim minority and denying the legitimate interests of the Hindu majority Meanwhile VP Singh’s great expectation of a drone of Congress MPs deserting Rajiv and joining his National Front (which many were now calling a “notional front”) had wholly collapsed His euphemism for what he considered unavoidable was “realignment of centrist political forces” Not a single Congress MP had left the party but Devi Lal and Chandra Shekhar together with their followers had walked out on him Advani’s march however never reached its destination For what the prime minister could not do Bihar’s OBC chief minister Lalu Prasad did He arrested Advani This did not prevent angry karsevaks from making forays into UP where chief minister Mulayam Singh Yadav also an OBC had made sure the security forces kept all unwanted persons at bay Often clashes between the two sides resulted in casualties while injuries were widespread But the hit-and-run incidents and forays escalated by the day On October 30 as historian Ramachandra Guha has recorded a large crowd of karsevaks managed to dodge the BSF and reach the Babri masjid where it planted a saffron flag on the structure Some started attacking it with axes and hammers To prevent a mass invasion of the mosque volunteers were chased into narrow lanes in the area where the karsevaks backed by angry residents resisted the police with stones and sticks The battle lasted three full

NewsWritten by Shalini Langer | Published: July 25 2014 3:45 pm This may be the best work from director Wes Anderson Related News Director: Wes Anderson Cast: Ralph Fiennes Tony Revolori F Murray Abraham Jude Law Adrien Brody Willem Dafoe Saoirse Ronan IE Rating: 45 It’s just like Wes Anderson to set his story in a fictitious East European Alpine country and then plot it around the ‘Grand Budapest’ hotel Hungary may have nothing to do with Anderson’s Zubrowka But Hungary with its beautiful capital Budapest is nothing if not a country often on the wrong side of history Quite like Anderson’s Grand Budapest hotel here perched improbably on a mountain peak as war comes close and quite like its inhabitants who revel within its old-world charms And that is why this may be the best work from Anderson the whimsical filmmaker whose characters (Rushmore The Royal Tenenbaums Moonrise Kingdom The Darjeeling Ltd) inhabit a universe just one removed from ours — they are not us but we have all been there This film will silence critics who accuse him of deploying his obsessive framing of scenes and stylised characters once too often preferring them over substance Here everything including the painting-like effect is in the cause of evoking a past that is fast disappearing And Anderson whose films always evoke the past even when set in unspecified times has fun with it Let’s start with the candy-pink hotel in the midst of fir trees its blood-red interiors and its numerous numerous brightly lit windows Here is a dollhouse if ever there was one waiting to collapse on itself But that’s before the camera moves in into its bustling and busy corridors circa 1932 with its dowager countesses and eccentric clients its solemn bellboys and silent lift operators and its eager lobby boy Zero Mustafa (Revolori) and lively concierge M Gustave (Fiennes) With those setpieces alone the film creates a world of the ill-equipped rich and the unseen hands that keep it running Murder love and violence enter this world when a very very rich old woman Gustave is having an affair with — among the many thus obliged with his bedside service — suddenly dies Madame D (an unrecognisable Tilda Swinton) bequeaths Gustave a precious painting leaving her son Dmitry (Brody) boiling As Dmitry vows revenge Gustave finds himself implicated for Madame D’s murder His loyal bellboy Mustafa and Mustafa’s pretty baker girlfriend Agatha (Ronan) now must find a way to get justice All this happens while WWII is slowly crawling up towards Zebrowka with Mustafa twice hauled up by German-like troops for not carrying the right papers There’s poisoning beheading stabbing and cutting of fingers as Dmitry’s henchman Joplin (Dafoe evil) chases the painting Gustave and Mustafa have secreted away There’s a chase around Madame D’s house where doors open up onto more doors (in another dollhouse-like effect) there’s a prison escape using improbably long ladders and there’s a madcap race down a snowclad mountain that’s freezing even to look at However essentially the film is about the world within the Grand Budapest hotel’s walls and about the improbable relationships it nestles Whether it’s Gustave and Madame D Gustave and an SS-like officer (Norton) Gustave and the concierges of the world’s most exclusive spaces Mustafa and Agatha or most importantly Gustave and Mustafa The bellboy is an immigrant from another fictitious country in the Middle East who paints on a thin moustache to fit in initially The concierge is a man well groomed now in the ways of the world he has been trained to serve including never stepping out without being bathed in perfume Gustave is both kind and greedy mindful of own stature as well as of those below him dutiful and wayward loyal and unfaithful and Fiennes bring it all out beautifully with just the right touch of comedy that Anderson is aiming for Revolori too is a real find as Mustafa devoted and observant to a fault The grown-up Mustafa is played by an equally impressive Abraham Anderson’s regulars populate the rest of the film even turning in for roles of a second or two The film credits the writings of Viennese writer Stephan Zweig as inspiration There are many more it alludes to However the film essentially belongs to only Anderson — in not just its name but also in the name of Zero Mustafa (with parallels to immigrant actor Zero

by any other name may smell as sweet but there is little to recommend this fairytale told countless times before and now in French and badly dubbed English And that’s not for lack of one red rose or many Scriptwriters Sandra Vo-Anh and Gans try it by introducing three brothers apart from the two demanding sisters for Belle an alarming number of dogs and by giving a backstory that Belle sees in her dreams that leaves no one in doubt that the hairy creature on display is a former caddish prince So not only are you not sure whether Belle is falling in love with the beast or the prince he was the prince he was isn’t a nice enough human to fall in love with While one reason could be to try make understand why the prince brought that fate upon himself Cassel isn’t the kind of actor to reflect an ‘inner goodness’ He relishes in his role of a cruel game hunter who ignores his wife and may draw more sympathetic titters when hidden behind the guise of the beast The first few visions of that beast are truly startling and Gans does well in imagining a castle and kingdom thrown into disrepair and loneliness However his Belle again doesn’t have the spark to light up that place despite being played by the reliable Seydoux Perhaps in one last ditch attempt to lift the listlessness the film has a fight sequence with giants But by then it’s clear that La Belle Et La Bette (Beauty and
