New Tom Forrestall Work Celebrates Parrsboros Eldon George

first_imgNova Scotia artist Tom Forrestall has created two new works to celebrate the life and accomplishments of amateur geologist Eldon George and the Parrsboro Rock and Mineral Shop. “These two original works of art capture so much of the playful, curious, and kind character of Eldon,” said Tim Fedak, curator at the Fundy Geological Museum. “The painting and portrait are wonderful depictions of this important person and place.” One painting is a detailed watercolour of the Parrsboro Rock and Mineral Shop showing it as a playful and interesting location. The shop and the Fundy Geological Museum are important destinations on the Parrsboro Shore, with thousands of people visiting every year. The other print shows Mr. George holding a pewter medallion of footprints of what is known as “the world’s smallest dinosaur” which he found. He is standing in front of the cliff where he found his first fossil when he was a boy. Tom Forrestall was invited to create the work by the O’Regan family as a tribute to Eldon and his important contributions to Nova Scotia and the Parrsboro area. The O’Regans have long maintained their connections with the area, including supporting local projects. The artist spent a week visiting Mr. George and the famous Parrsboro Rock and Mineral Shop. Prints of the two artworks are being sold by the Cumberland Geological Society to raise funds for the Parrsboro Rock Shop Project. Each print is signed by Tom Forrestall and Eldon George. Mr. George, 84, started the Parrsboro Rock and Mineral Shop at the age of 17 in 1948. The Cumberland Geological Society recently purchased the shop to create a permanent exhibit at the Fundy Geological Museum that will pay tribute to Mr. George’s contributions to science and the region. Both Mr. George and Mr. Forrestall are Order of Nova Scotia recipients. Mr. George received the Order of Nova Scotia in 2013 for his contributions to geology and tourism along the Parrsboro Shore. Mr. Forrestall received the award in 2007 as an influential artist who has produced an impressive body of work in painting, drawing and sculpture.

The Assam Rifles came into being in 1835 as a militia called the ‘Cachar Levy’. With approximately 750 men, this force was formed to primarily protect British tea estates and their settlements against tribal raids. Subsequently, all these forces were reorganised and renamed as the ‘Frontier Force’ as their role was increased to conduct of punitive expeditions across the borders of undivided Assam. This force significantly contributed in opening the region to administration and commerce and over time it came to be known as the “right arm of the civil and left arm of the military”.last_img read more

Addohas New Project in Senegal Angers Local Population

Rabat – Addoha Group has successfully obtained a lease of 10,000 hectares of land in the communes of Dodel and Demette in the Podor department of northern Senegal. The real estate giant now conquering Africa paid “only” 2 billion FCFA (nearly MAD 31 million) to benefit from this over 40 year-long lease for a rice project, reported the local press, which relayed that a wave of protests among the local population have accused Addoha of land grabbing.According to the daily Senegalese AS, the land is intended for the production of rice. However, Addoha director Anas Sefrioui, a billionaire listed on Forbes magazine, had built his company’s reputation in promoting social housing in Morocco and cement production in West and Central Africa. For the populations of Fouta-Toro in northern Senegal, the pill is hard to swallow. While the Senegalese government confirmed it had signed a 40-year lease agreement with the Moroccan group previously active on the Senegalese real estate market, the real estate company will have to disburse only 2 billion FCFA, “an unfit amount that feeds accusations of land grabbing,” reads the local press.The question remains: what was the process used to determine these prices? And out of the 2 billion FCFA Addoha will have to pay, what are the shares returned to the two rural communities and those allocated to the landowners?And while the leased land shall be used for the production of rice, many local observers question Addoha’s ability to carry out this project in a field where it has no experience. Sefroui’s group had already acquired the site of the former bus station “Pompiers” in the heart of Dakar, where it is building a residential property development called “Cité de l’Emergence”, 2000 hectares of which the Moroccan group promised to allocate to the villagers. read more

UN climate talks back on track after brief suspension

14 December 2009Talks resumed at the United Nations summit in Copenhagen, Denmark, today after African nations briefly suspended negotiations over the future of the Kyoto Protocol, currently the only legally binding pact on climate change. Many industrialized countries are hoping to merge the Protocol and the outcome of the Copenhagen meeting, which entered its second and final week today, into a single agreement.However, their developing counterparts, among the least responsible for greenhouse gas emissions, want to extend the Protocol past 2012, when its first commitment period ends, and hammer out a separate agreement this week in Copenhagen.“I think this is not just an African concern,” Yvo de Boer, Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), told reporters today. “I think that the vast majority of the countries here want to see a continuation of the Kyoto Protocol.”To this end, informal consultations kicked off in Copenhagen today, he said, with the Kyoto Protocol topping the list of discussion topics.Mr. de Boer said that talks are halfway up the hill whose summit is an agreement reached by world leaders at the end of the two-week Copenhagen meeting.“I think we’re queuing up for the cable car, but the rest of ride is going to be fast, smooth and relaxing,” he noted.One of the remaining challenges, the official pointed out, is “how to capture countries’ commitment, countries’ willingness to act in a final agreement at the end of this week.”The ministerial portion of the conference, to be attended by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, will kick off tomorrow, while the high-level segment – which will see the participation of 115 heads of State – will begin later this week.Mr. Ban, who departs for Copenhagen today, emphasized at his end-of-year press conference in New York today that “decades of effort will come down to this one critical week” in the Danish capital.“Seldom in history has a choice been so clear,” he said, exhorting negotiators to redouble their efforts and make the final push towards a new agreement.“If everything is left to leaders to resolve at the last minute, we risk having a weak deal – or no deal at all,” the Secretary-General said. “And this would be a failure of potentially catastrophic consequence…“As we depart for Copenhagen, I am confident that a fair deal is within our reach – a deal that can be embraced by all nations, large and small, rich and poor.” read more

Mens Basketball Ohio State prepares for physical battle with Texas Southern

Ohio State redshirt junior forward Keita Bates-Diop (33) attempts to block a shot in the first half in the game against Radford on Nov. 12. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorAfter coasting through its first two wins of the season, Ohio State (2-0) will look to keep its momentum up against Texas Southern (0-2) at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Schottenstein Center.Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann said his team has spent a lot of time preparing for the Tigers by watching film and gearing up for a “really talented” team.“They’re athletic. They’re explosive offensively,” Holtmann said. “It’ll be one of the better nonconference teams we’ll play. It’s clearly the best we’ve played up to this point. So our focus is on getting better and preparing for them.”Texas Southern lost its leading scorer from last year, Zach Lofton, when he transferred to New Mexico State in the offseason. Sophomore point guard Demontrae Jefferson has filled the offensive void, averaging 21 points and 3.5 assists per game. He has shot 50 percent from 3-point range in the first two games of the season. Holtmann referred to the 5-foot-7 guard as one of the Tigers’ “dynamic playmakers.”Averaging nine points and 11 rebounds per game, redshirt junior center Trayvon Reed represents a tall task for the Buckeyes. Ohio State has outrebounded opponents 48 to 27.5 on average to begin the season, but have not encountered the size and strength presented by the 7-foot-2 center.Ohio State redshirt junior forward Keita Bates-Diop, who leads the Buckeyes with 20.5 points and 10.5 rebounds per game, understands his team must account for the threat Texas Southern poses inside. He said the team has been emphasizing the importance of playing physical in practice.“A lot of box-out drills,” Bates-Diop said. “A lot of just making sure we’re hitting guys and checking guys and knowing where guys are at least on the defensive boards.”Texas Southern redshirt senior guard Donte Clark also has been a force for the Tigers. The 6-foot-4 guard averages 17.5 points and 2.5 steals per game, along with 11 rebounds per game.Ohio State redshirt senior Andrew Dakich, who serves as junior C.J. Jackson’s primary backup at point guard, noted he and Jackson will have to expand their responsibilities to deal with an aggressive backcourt.“That’s been harped about from the point guard position because we don’t normally have to block out just because our guy’s getting back on defense,” Dakich said. “So that’s kind of been an area of improvement where C.J. and I have to go block someone out all the time, so we can get extra possessions and eliminate their extra possessions.”Whichever team wins the rebounding battle and earns more possessions will put itself in a good position to win the game. Extra possessions lead to extra shots, and Texas Southern has shown some weakness defensively through two games. Texas Southern has struggled defending the 3-point line, allowing 13 3-pointers per game at a 36.6 percent clip. While Ohio State has made only 6.5 3-pointers per game on 28.9 percent shooting, Bates-Diop, Jackson and redshirt senior guard Kam Williams have combined for five made 3s per game at a 41.6 percent rate.The Buckeyes will need to keep the Tigers off the glass and win the physical battle in the paint to have success. Holtmann’s team will also look to capitalize on its opportunities from the perimeter in order to defeat Texas Southern. Holtmann said the Tigers are well-coached and use their combination of size and explosiveness to exploit defenses.“They have kind of matchup issues all over the floor,” Holtmann said. “And with their ability to dribble, pass and shoot — spread you out — makes it a challenge.”Correction: An earlier version of this story inaccurately said Texas Southern has averaged a rebounding advantage of 51 to 39.5 on average in its first two games. In fact, it was out rebounded 45-44 by Washington State and 57-35 by Gonzaga. read more

Royal Albert Hall soprano told to change her EU flag dress

A few yellow stars. How provocative. It’s quite right that people’s sensibilities were protected from such an overt and provocatively dangerous statement.— Benedict Nelson (@ennobledinsect) March 25, 2019 When members of the public bought tickets to a rousing celebration of the world’s best-loved classical music on Saturday night, they were promised indoor fireworks, thundering cannons and can-can girls in the aisles.They were probably not expecting the stage of the Royal Albert Hall to become a political battleground, after a soprano donned the colours and flag of the European Union for her turn in the spotlight.Anna Patalong, who spent Saturday at the London protest march to demand a second referendum, wore yellow and blue with a distinctive necklace of stars, in what appeared to be a defiant message to the electorate through the prism of classical music.And as concert organisers, determined that the night not be hijacked by disagreements over Europe, asked her to change back into the dress she had worn for the previous performances, her husband took to social media to complain about her mistreatment.The concert, called Classical Spectacular and advertised as the “UK’s most popular classical show”, has been running for 30 years at the Royal Albert Hall, loved by its fans for celebratory, flag-waving atmosphere not unlike the Last Night of the Proms. Ms Patalong, a British singer who has Polish and Irish heritage, had attended Saturday’s People’s Vote march in London and tweeted a picture of herself with MPs Anna Soubry and Chuka Umunna. Its programme includes highlights from Handel, Bizet, Strauss, Vaughan Williams and Verdi, with a grand finale featuring Jerusalem, Rule Britannia!, Nessun Dorma, Land of Hope and Glory and the 1812 Overture. So proud of my wonderful wonderful wife who, faced with a sea of Union Jack wavers at the Albert Hall, reconfigured Rule Britannia to the tune of Ode to Joy. She’s my hero. #PeopleVoteMarch #Brexit— Benedict Nelson (@ennobledinsect) March 23, 2019 Anna Patalong joins Anna Soubry and Chuka Umunna at People’s Vote March Credit:@Anna_Patalong  In a series of tweets beginning on Sunday, her husband, baritone Benedict Nelson, criticised the decision to ask her to change.”Yesterday a man was ejected from the ROH for wearing a pro EU T-shirt. Today my wife was asked to change her dress from yellow and blue at the RAH as the colours were too provocative,” he tweeted.”Two artistic venues people. Anyone who knows their history knows what that sounds like.”Quoting George Orwell’s notion that “the opinion that art should have nothing to do with politics is itself a political attitude”, he added: “If you can’t enjoy a three hour concert because a performer wears some visible gold stars for 3 minutes of it, you need to have a word with yourself.” She also accepted praise for what she termed “my tiny bit of civil disobedience” after a video showing her momentarily reconfiguring Rule Britannia to the tune of Ode to Joy at the Royal Albert Hall was shared by her husband.Anthony Findlay, CEO of the show’s producers Raymond Gubbay, said the soprano had not been asked to change mid-show, but encouraged to go back to her original outfit for the following evening’s performance. Anna Patalong joins Anna Soubry and Chuka Umunna at People's Vote March  Performers including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra are joined by  dancers, lighting and indoor fireworks lending to the atmosphere of fun.On Saturday night, Ms Patalong chose to wear a striking yellow dress, complete with blue sash and yellow stars, in an outfit choice she announced on Instagram as “rocking some EU colours for tonight’s concert”.She was afterwards asked to revert to the red dress she had worn on previous nights for the Sunday show, after organisers raised fears that the evening would be misunderstood as being an appropriate space for such a political statement.

Le mystère demeure sur le bolide qui a traversé le ciel français

first_imgLe mystère demeure sur le bolide qui a traversé le ciel françaisGrâce aux témoignages qui se multiplient de plus en plus sur la Toile, les spécialistes en savent un peu plus sur le mystérieux objet qui a illuminé le ciel nocturne vendredi soir. Mais le mystère demeure quant à la nature du phénomène. “Vendredi à 21h09, nous avons vu passer au dessus de Bagnolet ce fameux objet non identifié. C’était une énorme boule de feu jaune au centre et bleu à l’extérieur, suivie d’une immense queue enflammée. L’objet paraissait très bas et se déplaçait très très vite”. “Nous l’avons également vu en Basse Normandie du coté de Vire ! Une étoile filante qui s’est transformée en boule de feu d’Ouest en Est”. Tout comme beaucoup d’internautes, vous avez été nombreux ce week-end à décrire sur Maxisciences le spectacle auquel vous avez assisté vendredi soir. Un mystérieux objet semblable à un météore en pleine combustion a survolé la France aux alentours de 21H avant de disparaitre complètement dans le ciel étoilé.  Or, si les observations divergent quelque peu d’un témoin à l’autre, le recoupement de celles-ci a permis d’en savoir bien davantage sur l’objet, qui a même pu être filmé et photographié. Visible pendant près de dix secondes selon certains observateurs, le bolide aurait emprunté une trajectoire allant du nord-ouest au sud-est, avant de se séparer en deux à trois morceaux distincts. Des précieuses données dont s’est rapidement emparé le Groupe d’Etude et d’Information des Phénomènes Aérospatiaux Non-identifiés (GEIPAN) du Centre national d’études spatiales (CNES).  Mini-astéroïdes ou bouts de satellites ? “Pour l’instant, nous n’en sommes qu’au recueil de témoignages. Hélas, nous n’avons pas encore identifié l’origine du bolide”, ont précisé les scientifiques du GEIPAN cité par Ciel et espace. Depuis samedi, les hypothèses se multiplient donc sur la Toile. Si plusieurs s’accordent sur une désintégration d’un météoroïde, d’autres évoquent des restes de satellite. Néanmoins, une chose est sûre : il ne s’agit pas de fragments provenant du satellite ROSAT qui est retombé plus tard et vers l’océan Indien. À lire aussiSpaceX : un satellite d’Elon Musk manque d’entrer en collision avec un satellite de l’ESAAutre hypothèse évoquée par Jean Dumont, le fondateur de l’association d’astronomie Montluçon-Commentry cité par le journal La Montagne : le phénomène pourrait être lié au lancement de la fusée Soyouz et des satellites Galileo. “Les étages de la fusée se détachent et retombent dans l’atmosphère, cela peut-être une explication”, a estimé ce spécialiste. Si le mystère demeure, on devrait en savoir encore un peu plus dans les prochains jours. Néanmoins, la vitesse relativement lente du bolide pourrait laisser penser, d’après Ciel et espace, qu’il s’agirait plutôt d’un objet d’origine artificielle, “un petit satellite ou un morceau de fusée”.

Gregg Abbott to address safety and security at Texas schools in the wake of the shooting at Santa Fe, Texas.This year, Texas schools have ramped up efforts to keep students safe, especially since the school shooting in Santa Fe. A new measure from several advocacy groups tries to make sure those efforts don’t ignore students’ rights.Students may wonder if they can be questioned without their parent or guardian, if they can videotape police on their cell phone. And what happens if they get charged with a misdemeanor at school?These are all questions answered in the new online toolkit called “Make My School Safe” from Texas Appleseed, Disability Rights Texas and the Earl Carl Institute for Legal and Social Policy at Texas Southern University. “Often what’s missing in the school safety conversation is the impact that a lot of the so-called solutions will have on students and schools and sort of their everyday interactions with each other and with adults in their schools,” said Morgan Craven, who directs the school-to-prison pipeline project at Texas Appleseed.Craven said that many ideas for school safety aren’t actually proven to reduce school violence. But, she said that research does show how positive relationships on campus can reduce those incidents.“The thing to do to protect students is to really build those strong relationships,” Craven said, citing studies by the Secret Service, the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Education and other experts in the school safety field.

SAGAFTRA Ends Long Strike Against Ad Agency Bartle Bogle Hegarty

first_img Popular on Variety Gabrielle Carteris Re-Elected as SAG-AFTRA President Wednesday’s SAG-AFTRA Election to Cap Bitter Battle Between Gabrielle Carteris, Matthew Modine SAG-AFTRA said Saturday that the end of the strike stemmed from a recent favorable ruling from an administrative law judge in response to its filing of an unfair labor practice charge with the National Labor Relations Board.SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris said, “We’re pleased that BBH has returned to their longtime status as a SAG-AFTRA signatory. Since the inception of our relationship nearly 20 years ago, we have partnered effectively to provide the best talent in the world to BBH clients while ensuring fair compensation and safe working conditions for SAG-AFTRA members. It has been and will continue to be an extraordinarily productive relationship delivering value to the entire industry. Now, with our new 2019 Commercials Contracts we are thrilled that BBH can take full advantage of the transformative compensation models in this groundbreaking agreement to better compete in the constantly evolving advertising industry.”Brett Edgar, managing director of BBH NY, said, “Our goal from the start was to produce high-level, cutting-edge creative work for our clients on a level playing field in a fast-evolving industry. We lost the battle, will respect the ruling and move on. We thank our clients for their unrelenting support throughout this process.” Related SAG-AFTRA has ended its 10-month strike against Bartle Bogle Hegarty after the advertising agency agreed to sign the union’s new commercials contract.The union instructed its 160,000 members in September not to accept any work for BBH, which had been signed to SAG-AFTRA’s commercials contracts since 1999. The strike came two weeks after BBH publicly announced that it had withdrawn from the contract, asserting that the agreement was outdated and accusing the union of being inflexible.The union held dozens of rallies against BHH, including one in January that drew nearly 1,000 supporters next to the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles.BBH is owned by Publicis Groupe, a multinational communications and marketing company that owns several ad agencies including SAG-AFTRA signatories Saatchi & Saatchi and Leo Burnett. The agency has produced commercials for Audi, Absolut, Ikea, Samsung, and Virgin Media. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Leaked Video Shows Off New Xbox Live Avatars

first_img Hands-On: ‘New Super Lucky’s Tale’ Is Your Next Xbox Game on SwitchPlayStation 5 vs. Xbox Project Scarlett: Everything We Know Stay on target Last fall, after over a year of teasing, Microsoft finally released the Xbox One X, its “Most Powerful Console Ever.” As to be expected, the upgraded console also launched alongside a revamped version of the Xbox Live software and interface. But one part of the Xbox experience got left behind in this great leap forward… until now. Microsoft is preparing to overhaul its Avatars, and a leaked video provided more details.ResetEra forum users first found the YouTube video, uploaded by a former Microsoft designer, showing the new Xbox Avatar Editor in action. The original video has been removed but there’s still a lot we can glean off of screengrabs and snippets uploaded to Twitter.A look at the #NewAvatars@JamieMoranUK @Rand_al_Thor_19 @BeastFireTimdog @Mooch1978 @JezCorden @The_CrapGamer— IdleSloth (@IdleSloth1984) April 17, 2018The video shows off the expanded range of body customization options as well as new clothes and objects you can equip on your Avatar. The original Avatars, created in response to the more abstract Mii characters of Nintendo Wii, have always looked like slightly more realistic cartoons. But these new editing tools for coloring your fingernails or getting just the perfect 1950s greaser hair are practically The Sims. They’re so different that objects purchased for old Avatars actually aren’t compatible with these new ones, powered by the Unity Engine.We’ve known new Xbox Avatars have been coming for a while. As far back as 2016 Microsoft was showcasing new diverse Avatar options like wheelchairs and artificial limbs. We got a new trailer for them during this past E3, and apparently they were originally slated to launch alongside the Xbox One X last fall. But we shouldn’t be waiting too much longer now since testers should be getting these tools sometime this month. And like so many of Microsoft’s modern gaming initiatives now, the new Avatars works across Xbox One and Windows 10.People are diverse, that’s great, and our virtual avatars should reflect and express that. So the more Xbox Live Avatar options the better. Gotta use that 4K power for something.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more
