Migiro holds talks with leaders of three troubled African countries

During her meeting with Ivorian President Laurent Gbagbo, Ms. Migiro stressed how important it was that the West African nation’s electoral process takes place as planned so that its democratic institutions – buffeted by five years of divide between the Government-controlled south and the rebel-held north – can rebuild.Mr. Gbagbo assured Ms. Migiro that he is doing everything possible to meet United Nations’ expectations on the electoral process, UN spokesperson Marie Okabe told reporters today.He called for enhanced support for both the electoral process and the wider implementation of the Ouagadougou peace accord, the March agreement for ending the prolonged political stand-off between the Government and the rebels.The accord outlines a series of measures, including: the creation of a new transitional government; organizing free and fair presidential elections; the merging of the rebel Forces Nouvelles and the national defence and security forces through an integrated command centre; the dismantling of militias and disarming of ex-combatants; and the replacement of the so-called zone of confidence separating north and south with a green line to be monitored by the UN peacekeeping mission, known as UNOCI.Speaking with President João Bernardo Vieira of Guinea-Bissau, Ms. Migiro voiced concern about his country’s growing role as a transit point for international drug trafficking.Last week Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon also called for the mandate of the UN Peacebuilding Support Office to the country (UNOGBIS) to be extended by a year, in part so that it can continue to assist the Government to combat illegal drug trafficking.Appealing for greater regional cooperation and national Government intervention, Ms. Migiro assured Mr. Vieira that the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) will maintain its support.The Deputy Secretary-General also called on the President of Guinea-Bissau to ensure that elections due next year are held as planned so that a constitutional crisis is averted.Mr. Vieira noted that the electoral commission’s greatest challenge is a lack of resources to update the voter register in Guinea-Bissau.Meanwhile, Ms. Migiro also held a bilateral meeting with the new Somali Prime Minister Nur Hassan Hussein. 10 December 2007Deputy Secretary-General Asha-Rose Migiro has held talks with the leaders of three African countries facing enormous political, economic and social challenges – Côte d’Ivoire, Guinea-Bissau and Somalia – during her visit to Lisbon, Portugal, this weekend to attend the African Union-European Union summit. read more

Quebec rules out more Bombardier aid amid reports company looking for investors

MONTREAL — The Quebec government sent a signal to Bombardier that it likely won’t give the struggling aerospace giant another bailout if reports are true the company is once again looking for cash.“I think we’ve done enough for the aerospace industry,” Quebec Economy Minister Dominique Anglade told reporters Monday in reaction to a report by Bloomberg over the weekend that said Bombardier is looking for investors and considering selling aerospace assets.The article, citing anonymous sources, said the company is in discussion to sell its Q400 turboprop and CRJ regional-jet units, which are assembled in Toronto and Mirabel, Que., respectively.Airbus SE is among the potential buyers, Bloomberg said.Quebec invested US$1 billion in 2016 for a 49.5 per cent stake in Bombardier’s CSeries commercial jet program.Anglade, who is also now deputy premier, said the government will not get involved in Bombardier’s Q400 turboprop or CRJ regional jet programs.“When there was investment made by the Quebec government initially in the CSeries, we said we were looking for another partner. We’ve always said that,” she said.“In any proposal we would be looking at, we would look at employment. Number 1 is the number of jobs we have in Quebec. If you look at the numbers in the aerospace industry right now, they’re pretty good. There are a lot of things happening in the aerospace industry in Quebec and we want to maintain it that way.”Alongside Anglade was Federal Economic Development Minister Navdeep Bains, whose government gave Bombardier (TSX:BBD.B) a $372.5-million loan earlier this year.“I think the fundamental issue from our point of view is that we have demonstrated a long-standing commitment to the aerospace sector,” he told reporters. “This is really an important sector to the Canadian economy — Quebec here in particular. It’s really about production and jobs here.”David Chartrand, Quebec co-ordinator for the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, didn’t want to comment on the report, saying he didn’t have enough information.Bombardier’s reported interest in selling assets is tied to the recent decision by the U.S. Department of Commerce to propose a hefty 300 per cent duty on its CSeries jets in response to a complaint by rival Boeing.The department’s preliminary countervailing duty findings agreed with Boeing that Bombardier benefited from improper government subsidies, giving it an unfair advantage when selling its CSeries 100-to-150-seat jets south of the border.Aerospace industry experts expressed some doubt about the possibility Bombardier would sell off its regional jets or turboprop units.“That seems improbable for the moment,” said Seth Seifman, analyst with J.P. Morgan, in an email.He said Comac, a Chinese state-owned company, had already considered investing in the CSeries, and could be interested in certain divisions of Bombardier’s aerospace sector.Seifman said the Chinese firm would be tempted to buy intellectual property assets as well as establish business relations with existing clients.Mehran Ebrahimi, with the aeronautics research group at Universite de Quebec a Montreal’s School of Management, said he didn’t know why Bombardier would sell off the Q400 turboprop or CRJ regional jet programs.“These are both cash cows,” he said. “Why get rid of them when the order books are in good shape?” read more

Secret relationship between Virgin Queen Elizabeth and French ambassador revealed

She is known as the Virgin Queen, a monarch who took a vow of chastity upon her ascension to the throne, insisting she was “married” to her country.But the love life of Queen Elizabeth I has long been the subject of great speculation amid  rumours of various secret liaisons.Now, Dr Estelle Paranque, a historian and Tudor expert, claims to have discovered evidence of an intimate relationship between the monarch and a French ambassador, to whom she grew close when he moved to the UK.Bertrand Salignac de la Mothe Fénélon, a French nobleman and experienced diplomat, was sent to England in November 1568, where he was to remain for seven years.According to letters he sent back to the French court, uncovered by Dr Paranque, he quickly fell into the Queen’s favour, and she gave him the unusual and somewhat scandalous privilege of access to her private chambers. He was, claims the historian, soon to be found constantly by her side.La Mothe Fénélon wrote that Queen Elizabeth often had “a very jovial and happy face” when she was around him, whether they were hunting, dining or discussing politics together.Her admiration appeared to have been reciprocated. He wrote to King Charles IX of France of her hunting prowess, describing his awe when he saw her hunting “fallow deer with a crossbow.” Dr Estelle Paranque is a Queen Elizabeth specialist Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. More is revealed in Dr Paranque’s new book La Mothe Fénélon also, unusually, wrote of her good looks, telling French court in a letter, writing one day that she greeted him, “having decorated her court, being herself well dressed and looking as a wonder.He remarked on the fact that she was “better dressed than usual”  Dr Paranque said: “I think what’s happened is that he admired her and I think that we can be a bit suspicious about the fact that maybe he had a crush on her. He liked spending time with her.”It’s very clear that he enjoyed having after dinner conversations with her, she spoke to him for a long time.”She also blamed him for having forgotten her when he hadn’t seen her for a long time.”It was not really the sort of ambassadorial rhetoric. They definitely had a friendship. Crossbows were viewed as powerful weapons, often used by soldiers and nobles, and required significant upper-body strength; they were not usually used by women. Dr Estelle Paranque is a Queen Elizabeth specialistCredit:Eddie Mulholland More is revealed in Dr Paranque's new book On 18th January 1572, a the French ambassador wrote to Catherine de Medici that “she ordered me to bring a stool, and led me to sit next to her in a corner of her private chamber.”Dr Paranque said: “These secret locations where no one else was invited further demonstrate that Elizabeth and La Mothe Fénélon did not want their friendship to be discovered. Maybe she was confessing something personal? We cannot be sure, but La Mothe Fénélon’s tone indicates these interactions were not considered entirely proper behaviour.”During these conversations, they discussed a potential marriage to Henri, Duke of Anjou, older brother of François, Duke of Alençon.Dr Paranque added: “In many ways, by being the intermediate between Henri and Elizabeth, the French ambassador ended up being the one wooing the Queen.”Her book, Elizabeth I of England through Valois Eyes, Power, Representation, and Diplomacy in the Reign of the Queen, 1558–1588, is available to order online now. “Also in my book it’s striking the ways in which he described her to his masters, to the French rulers, he said she was a rock which is a very strong word and said she looked a wonder, and that she’s magnificent.”After enjoying his company at dinner, the Queen frequently took him to her private chamber  to seek his advice on political matters, such as her concerns about her rival for the throne, Mary, Queen of Scots. Their meetings were secretive; he writes: “the next day I was going to find the said Lady, who drew me off in a corridor aside.”As well as having the usual official diplomatic discussions, the two discussed private matters while hunting, during snatched conversations in corridors and in the corner of her private chamber. read more

Bahamas Elite Athlete Subvention Panel Announced

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, October 31, 2017 – Nassau – Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture the Hon. Michael Pintard in a press conference, Monday, October 30, 2017 thanked those who have helped to develop the Elite Athlete Subvention Programme on behalf of the Ministry.  He also saluted those who have benefited from it over the years.   The Minister especially thanked those who are now a part of the newly-formed panel that is tasked with revising the programme.Minister Pintard stated, at the Kendal G. L. Isaacs Gymnasium: “during the various courtesy calls with various federations and associations, the Ministry promised to work with them in revamping the subvention programme which has been a source of concern for many federations and athletes throughout the country.“Today we are here to announce the committee that has been assembled, who are already engaged in the work of revamping the subvention system.”This process is expected to take approximately six weeks.Panel members include Director of Sports Tim Munnings, National Sports Authority (NSA) Chairman Vaughn Roberts, Senator Jennie Isaacs-Dotson, Consultant Grafton Ifill, Jr., Gold medalist Tonique Williams, Businessman and former elite athlete David Morley, Attorney Koschina Marshall, and the Bahamas Olympic Committee Chairman (once elected).Director of Sports Tim Munnings pointed out that the Elite Athlete Subvention Scheme was created in 1996, primarily to assist with athletes returning to The Bahamas to compete.  At that time, he said, only about six athletes benefited.“Today, over 60 athletes are currently enrolled in the programme, benefiting from direct government financial assistance toward their competition and training expenses,” Mr. Munnings said.   “The Government of The Bahamas is pleased that the programme has contributed to the podium success of many of the participating athletes; and we feel that through the improved management of the programme, we are confident that we will celebrate even more success of our athletes.”Mr. Munnings noted that the panel assembled to review the programme was made up of former athletes and professional administrators capable of providing an objective analysis and recommendations for the future. The work of the committee will be done in consultation with federations, athletes and other stakeholders.“I want to make it perfectly clear: The Government of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas – having seen the exponential growth in sports in the country and the successes we have been experiencing across various sporting disciplines – is not in a position to provide what ideally we would love to provide by way of funding for all of the elite athletes in the country, however we are committed to doing our part,” Minister Pintard stated.“Furthermore, let me say that the purpose of sports in The Bahamas – and certainly under this Administration – is to not only develop elite athletes,” he added.   “We have other objectives, as well.”Minister Pintard said that one of those objectives is to use sports as a “national development tool” to promote healthy living among Bahamians.   An active lifestyle helps us in the fight against obesity and other non-communicable diseases.Secondly, Minister Pintard noted that the Government believes that education is “absolutely” important and sports play a key role in assisting many Bahamians who would have otherwise not been able to afford tertiary education by way of scholarships.“In addition, sports help persons develop various characteristics that are essential for wholesome development.”He added that the Government believes that sports can generate employment and be a source of revenue for many Bahamian professionals.“We ask all of our elite athletes to continue to do well in your respective disciplines; and demonstrate your commitment to The Bahamas.”He noted that it is not uncommon for many larger countries around the globe seek to lure elite athletes from other countries by offering forms of inducements.“In our case, we encourage you to remain focused, loyal, and nationalistic with respect to your country and we will do our part, within our financial capacity, to assist in your continued development,” Minister Pintard said.By: Eric Rose (BIS)Photo Caption:   Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture the Hon.

New Jersey Panel Recommends Lowering Limit for PFCs

first_imgThe safe levels of perfluorinated compounds (PFCs), chemicals that may have seeped into the groundwater at dozens of active and closed military installations, may be lower than previously believed, according to a recommendation from a research panel of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. The department’s Drinking Water Quality Institute last week recommended a limit of 14 parts per trillion of perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), significantly lower than the limit — 70 parts per trillion — recommended by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in May.Questions about the safe levels of PFCs have emerged since the Defense Department revealed it has expanded its investigation of sites across the nation that potentially have elevated levels of PFCs in their drinking water to at least 2,000, most of them on Air Force bases. The groundwater contamination is believed to have been caused by decades of use of firefighting foam at military installations.Following the New Jersey institute’s recommendation, the EPA said it is standing by its health advisory, reported the Intelligencer.“EPA’s health advisories serve as guidance to assist federal, state, tribal and local authorities, and managers of public or community drinking water systems,” according to a written statement the agency sent the paper. “States may issue different values based on their own analyses, including more stringent values that may reflect more conservative assumptions.”If New Jersey formally adopts the institute’s 14-parts-per-trillion recommendation for PFOA, it would be the lowest limit of any regulatory body. The Navy previously identified Naval Weapons Station Earle in New Jersey as one of four sites where it has discovered contamination by PFCs in the groundwater.Contaminants in the drinking water supplies also have been found outside of Philadelphia at the former Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Willow Grove and the former Naval Air Warfare Center. The affected towns of Horsham, Warminster and Warrington have initiated plans to remove PFCs from their water systems entirely, primarily by deactivating wells and purchasing replacement water.A researcher at Boston University told more than 100 residents at a public meeting at the former Naval Air Warfare Center in Westminster that the safe level of PFCs in drinking water is 1 part per trillion. “They may have to revisit that,” Richard Clapp, an epidemiologist and professor emeritus of environmental health, said of EPA’s guidelines, reported the Bucks County Courier Times.In reference to the recent 14-parts-per-trillion recommendation from the New Jersey panel, Clapp said, “I think that’s getting closer to what we need. That would be the lowest drinking water level of any state in the United States.” Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more

SCAM ALERT The 12 Scams Of The Holidays

first_imgMARLBOROUGH, MA — Another holiday season is upon us. While it should be merry and bright, there are some “Grinches” trying to take your personal information and money. Better Business Bureau encourages everyone to be informed about these 12 scams that are common during the holiday season:1. Free Gift Cards: Budgets can become tight when finding gifts for your loved ones, so any financial relief is welcomed. You may, however, come across emails or pop-up ads offering free gift cards. Be wary of these tempting opportunities. They are often a ploy to collect your personal information that can be later used to steal your identity.2. Social Media Gift Exchange: You’re invited via social media to join a gift exchange, which sounds harmless and fun. Why wouldn’t it be? If you buy one $10 gift for a stranger, you will receive as many as 36 gifts back! It’s actually a hoax with the same premise as a pyramid scheme where it relies on constantly recruiting new participants. In the United States, pyramid schemes are illegal, so it’s best to just respectfully decline any invitations to participate.3. Holiday Jobs: It’s not uncommon for people to want to make some extra money with a seasonal job. You just have to be careful of employment scams, especially when retailers and delivery services often need extra help during the holidays. Be cautious of solicitations requiring you to share personal information online or pay for a job lead. Rather than apply online, go to a retailer location and apply in person.4. Puppy Scams: Pets make great gifts, but there’s a lot you should first consider. Should you decide it’s the right decision, be careful about adopting a pet online. You could end up with a puppy mill pooch, or nothing at all. Fake pet sellers can lure you into thinking you’re getting a four legged friend, only to take your money and not deliver. Educate yourself with BBB’s investigative study on pet scams.5. Romance Scams: If that special someone you met online quickly gets cozy or asks for money, keep your guard up. Scammers can come across as a romantic interest, with the intention of taking advantage of your heightened emotions. Protect your heart and wallet by learning about BBB’s Romance Scam study.6. Travel Scams: Whether you are traveling to celebrate the holidays with loved ones or seeking warmer weather, holiday travel can be expensive. Online bargains for better deals can be tempting, so make sure the offers are legitimate with these travel tips.7. Bogus Websites: Online shopping is convenient especially when trying to avoid the holiday shopping rush. When you do shop online, make sure to only use legitimate websites. Scammers use URLs that look very similar to those of legitimate sites. Always double check the URL before making a purchase and be wary of sites where the brand name is included with longer URLs. Learn about five ways to avoid fake websites.8. Santa Scammers: The joy on children’s faces when they get a letter from Santa is priceless. There are several trusted companies offer charming and personalized letters from Santa, but scammers mimic them to get personal information from unsuspecting parents. Use BBB.org to find out which ones are legitimate.9. Pickpockets: While most scammers tend to focus their efforts online these days, pickpocketing still happens. Remember to safeguard your personal belongings while shopping, especially in crowded areas. Despite how flustered you may get, never leave your stuff unattended.10. Counterfeit Gifts: When luxury goods and other high-priced items are offered at a steal, chances are it’s counterfeit merchandise. Rarely are you getting the same quality as an original, and in some cases, the money finances illegal activities like drug trafficking and child labor. You’re best option is to look for the warning flagsand instead purchase from a trusted retailer.11. Malware Email: Don’t be quick to click! Clicking on the wrong link, or downloading a scammer’s attachment can result in malware spreading to your computer. This computer virus or “bug” can steal personal information or even hold your device hostage unless you pay a price. Links and attachments can come in the form of email or pop-up advertisements. Learn more about malware scams.12. Emergency Scam: No one wants to hear a family member or friend is dealing with an emergency, like a serious accident or incarceration. We quickly want to help, which is an admirable trait, but scammers take advantage of it. They target people claiming to be a family member or friend where the circumstance requires money to be resolved. Before sending any money, verify their story with other family and friends, but call directly. You can also ask questions that would be hard for an impostor to answer correctly. Familiarize yourself with other ways to identify an emergency scam.Help protect yourself and others this holiday season by learning more about scams and reporting any you come across to BBB Scam Tracker.(NOTE: The above press release is from the Better Business Bureau.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Some Homer City Coucil members weigh recall case appeal

first_img(Shahla Farzan / KBBI)An Anchorage Superior Court judge ruled Tuesday against three Homer City Council members seeking to halt a recall election next month. Council members Donna Aderhold, David Lewis and Catriona Reynolds are subjects of a recall election sparked over two resolutions they crafted and sponsored. The American Civil Liberties Union of Alaska represented the council members and is still weighing the possibility of an appeal.Listen nowSuperior Court Judge Erin Marston’s ruling found that recall petitioners seeking to oust the three council members correctly followed the process. Elected officials in Alaska are able to be recalled for misconduct in office, incompetence or failure to perform their duties.Attorney Tom Amodio has defended targets of recall efforts, including former state Senator Scott Ogan. Amodio explained that courts, much like Marston’s ruling, typically don’t dive into the facts of the stated grounds for a recall.“They alleged that I did something I didn’t do. The court said ‘No, we don’t really look at the facts. We don’t really dig into it. That’s not our job. That’s the voter’s job.’ They have to determine who to believe,” Amodio said. “Both sides are given a chance in the electoral process to give a statement.”The ACLU sued the city over City Clerk Jo Johnson’s certification of the three petitions – arguing it infringed on the council members right to freedom of speech. Petitioners claim that by crafting and sponsoring separate resolutions on the Dakota Access Pipeline and inclusivity, council members engaged in political activity and violated their oath of office. They also say irreparable economic harm was inflicted on the city after a draft of the inclusivity resolution was shared on social media.Judge Marston said Johnson was correct to certify the petitions and let voters weigh the merits of the claims. He said Johnson’s only role was to decide if the claims would be grounds for recall if found true.All three council members had one word for Marston’s ruling, “disappointing.”“He has now opened it up so that anyone can basically do a recall for any reason,” council member Lewis said.Lewis’ term is up in October and he said he’s not running for election if he survives the recall.“I had never planned. After more than nine years, it’s more than enough,” Lewis added.Council member Reynolds’ term is also up in October and she said the recall effort has been exhausting. She said it has convinced her to take a year off, before running for office again.Aderhold’s term is up next year and she said it’s too early to know if this will affect her decision to run. But, she said the recall process should be cause for concern.“It gives me concern about the integrity of our election process when a recall can be brought forth when elected officials are doing their jobs,” Aderhold asserted.The ACLU is still deciding whether to appeal the case. Lewis and Aderhold are weighing that option. Reynolds said she will not take part in an appeal.“Time and energy right now is better devoted to just pushing back against the recall itself and devoting the next little bit of time working towards that election,” Reynolds said.Pro-recall group and political action committee Heartbeat of Homer intervened in the case. Spokeswoman Sarah Vance said the group will stay active leading up to the special election.The recall election is scheduled for June 13. If all three members are recalled, the council would be one member shy of a quorum. It would have to appoint someone to one vacant seat within seven days of the election’s certification. Community members would be able to apply for remaining spots on the panel. Those seats would need to be filled by July 19.last_img read more

first_img Arizona Medicaid Patients Can Now Get a Lyft to the DoctorUber, Lyft Test PIN-Based Pickups at Portland Airport Stay on target Following successful pilots in Washington, D.C., and Atlanta, the Lyft Grocery Access Program will provide affordable rides to the supermarket for families in a dozen more cities.For folks living in a food desert—like the nation’s sprawling capital—finding affordable and nutritious ingredients often requires a car or multiple forms of public transit.So, in December, ride-sharing service Lyft partnered with charity Martha’s Table to launch the Grocery Access Program.AdChoices广告Families with a child enrolled at a participating elementary school can register to receive 50 $2.50 flat fare rides to and/or from three available grocery stores, as well as the market at Martha’s Table.The six-month trial ends in June, but, according to Geek sister site Mashable, D.C.’s program will continue running.“Realizing the positive impact the program can have in just one community, and how pervasive of an issue this is—affecting approximately 23.5 million people in the US—we’re launching the program in more than a dozen cities across the country, and soon rolling out to more markets throughout North America,” a Lyft blog post said.Individual cities’ grocery programs will be shaped by a local non-profit partner, Mashable reported.So while Martha’s Table dictated D.C.’s $125 in rides over six months based on school enrollment, the same may not be true for Atlantic City, Miami, or Phoenix, where Community FoodBank, Health in the Hood, and United Way will help determine the best way to distribute subsidized rides, respectively.Mike Masserman, Lyft’s head of social impact, told Mashable that the company’s discounted rides provided some families with their first taste of healthy food.The program has “given me peace of mind knowing that I can get to the grocery store and home safely,” a D.C. participant said. “It has helped me … on days I don’t want to be physically burdened with grocery bags on the bus or train.”Cities included in the national program launch:Atlantic City, N.J.Baltimore, Md.Chicago, Ill.Columbus, OhioDetroit, Mich.Indianapolis, Ind.Los Angeles, Calif.Miami, Fla.Ottawa, CanadaPhiladelphia, Pa.Phoenix, Ariz.Portland, Ore.Richmond, Va.Toronto, CanadaMore locations will be available later this year.More on Geek.com:More Americans Use Ride-Hailing Apps for Travel, Research SaysTaco Bell and Lyft Join Forces to Satisfy Your Late-Night Chalupa CravingsNew Uber Initiative Boosts Rider Safety on College Campuseslast_img read more

Hair and there

first_imgHair styling, treatments, pollution and stress can take a toll on your locks and make you look older. So don’t take hair care lightly.Norris Ogario, founder and Creative Director of Ogario London salon, feels hair needs care at every stage in life, reports femalefirst.co.uk. ‘We might not realise or think about it much but our locks can take a bit of a lashing over the years, which is why whatever age you are, you need to look after it,’ Ogario said. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’‘Treatments, colours, excessive heat, over-styling, stress, pollutants and even our diet can have a part to play and can take its toll if we aren’t careful,’ he added.Ogario reveals the secret to healthy hair for different age groups.Thirty Plus Thirty plus women are usually busy with career and family. If time is a luxury you can’t afford, go for a good quality haircut. Consult your hairdresser before getting your hair washed. ‘When I talk to a client, I can tell a lot from their mannerisms about how they wear their hair. They might push it to one side, away from the face. It’s important to understand the client so we can create a hairstyle that suits them and their lifestyle,’ said Ogario. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixForty PlusOnce women reach 40, they often think about getting their hair coloured to cover grey strands. They should go for the ones that are gentle on hair.‘I recommend a vegetable tint, a semi-permanent colour that rinses out over time. They give great, effective results and are much gentler on the hair.’ ‘Use an intensive and nourishing hair mask once or twice a week as this willrestore suppleness and strength,’ he explained.Fifty PlusApart from grey hair, women in fifties usually start experiencing hair thinning. The ones with longer hair should frequently trim their hair.‘Shorter cuts help sustain the strength of the hair, but make sure you have a consultation to work out the best shape for you. A fringe can often be flattering,’ Ogario said.last_img read more

Journey of a shadow

first_imgAccording to an ancient Roman author, Pliny the Elder, “Art was born from the desire to give substance to that which is incorporeal, to make permanent that which is fading.” Tracing back the history throws light on the fact ‘how shadow gave birth to art’ (when maid of Corinth traced her lover’s shadow on a wall) but the story behind ‘how art gave birth to shadow’ was quite obscure. No matter what the prevailing reasons were, today, shadow is much more than a dark reflection of the tangible and shadow art is much more than forming rabbit and monkey, against the light of the lamp on the wall. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfPerception about shadows has evolved with time. From being feared and ignored due to its dark nature, today, it is the way of creating forms out of something that isn’t there and hence forth. Shadow has the tendency to convey strong emotions through its boundless and formless nature. It can invoke curiosity among the viewers thereby keeping them engaged in exploring the veiled aspects of the art. Using these characteristic, artists like Kumi Yamashita, Tim Noble and Sue Webster have been playing these shadow games using day-to-day objects like thread, paper, cloth, broken tools, cigarette packets, soda cans and light since a long time. For example, you will be amazed to see how an exclamation point casts a shadow of a question mark when lit from one of its side. Aluminium numbers, placed in an artistic manner, gives out the reflection of a girl peeping at the crowd. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveLater, the elevating interest of the crowd and the novelty of the shadow as a form of art opened the door for experimentation. This, in turn, appealed the dancers to bring out something innovative and hence, shadow dance came into existence. Meeta Nagpal, a trained Bharatnatyam dancer and the founder of Musical dreams (Talent Management & Artistic Development Academy) finds shadow dance as an extremely strong, distinctive yet a refreshing form of storytelling. She says, “Shadow Dance is an innovative and effective form for performing arts. It is unique and creates curiosity for the audience. This makes it an interesting form for storytelling as one doesn’t see it very often and anything new always holds attention”. Meeta recently presented a shadow dance piece on different facets of Delhi which allows one to rediscover the amazement, forsooth and emotions of the city. The intense shadow dance piece depicted the various shades of Delhi from bright to grey. Catapult entertainment; a shadow dance company founded by Adam Battelstein, discusses the minor technicalities of shadow dance, on their company’s website, saying, “a good shadow dancer needs to understand the foreshortening and how moving from left to right or towards and away from the screen will distort your shape. For this reason, people who have skills in the visual arts often make good shadow casters.””Making good shadow shapes requires extra efforts and one cannot just presume that a good dancer will potentially be a good shadow artist as well,” added Adam, who has always left the audience awe-struck with the shadow dance presentations.Discussing if shadow dance is difficult to perform as compared to other art form, Meeta added, “No form of performing art is easy or tough. But yes, you have to get the whole emotion across to the audience without showing any expressions, which makes it all the more challenging.”In other part of the world, a Hungarian shadow-theatre company called Attraction, have carved a special niche for themselves since they know the art of creating poignant shapes, by carefully contorting their bodiesBehind a successful performance, there is a lot of hard work and danger that the artists are dealing with. Owing to the risk involved in performing such a dance, an equal level of physical and mental stamina is essential. Commenting on the same, Zoltan, the founder of Szucs mentioned, “Each member of the group practices for 11 hours at least so as to build up the required stamina. Moreover, since accidents can easily happen when we’re standing on each others’ backs, we have daily physiotherapy and sports massages to prevent injuries.”Originating around 3000 years back, shadow dancing has not gained as much prominence as it should have been. On the question of shadow dance not being a prominent form in the country comparatively, Meeta says, “It has its own restrictions – technical and physical. It is not easy to perform and needs a lot of rehearsals. Being non glamorous and not directly in front of the audience could also be a small reason.”But she feels that it is slowly gaining popularity as people can depict a lot of things with minimal paraphernalia and maximum imagination and creativity. “It will be well received as it carries with it a lot of simplicity. It doesn’t have many shades and is right in front of you – Black and White,” she adds. Unlike other dance forms, Shadow dance is not quite popular and versatile. But owing to the creativity involved in it, this art form deserves a place in the main stream.last_img read more

He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes.
