EC rejects govts request to publicise summer camps in Delhi govt schools

first_imgNEW DELHI: The Election Commission Tuesday turned down the AAP government’s request to release advertisements about summer camps in government schools prompting Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia to write a letter to the poll body to reconsider its decision.The EC has pointed out that it has no objection to running summer camps which is part of AAP government’s Mission Buniyad Programme, subject to the condition that the appeal to send their wards to the camp has to be made to the parents through schools and not through print, TV or radio advertisements. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderSisodia, who is also Delhi’s Education Minister, questioned the “basis” on which the request has been rejected. “I feel extremely disappointed that the ECI chose to look at this issue from a very narrow political lens, completely ignoring the interest of lakhs of children largely from marginalised section of society. The success of the camp is contingent upon support of parents which is ensured through regular reach out to them by government using print media, TV and radio,” Sisodia said in a letter to the ECI. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsHe said by exercising your power to stop a simple message to the poor parents asking them to send their children to school during summer vacation, do you really think you are aiding in conducting free and fair elections? “The elections will be over in the next one month but the loss to lakhs of children cannot be compensated if you allow your unjustified decision to stay on,” he added. During a press conference, Sisodia said,”Did the EC even think for a while as to what mode to be adopted by the school to ask the poor parents to come to school in the first place?” The summer camps in Delhi government’s school, an initiative of the AAP dispensation will be organised from May 16 to June 9 for classes 3 to 8.last_img read more

UN to Probe Allegations of Sexual Misconduct in CAR in Which

Rabat – The United Nations peacekeeping mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA) announced on Friday that it would probe allegations of mishandling investigations into sexual misconduct in which peacekeepers, from several nationalities, including Moroccans, are accused of involvement.Vladimir Monteiro, MINUSCA spokesperson, told AFP that these allegations are going to be examined.On Wednesday, Code Blue Campaign, an NGO based in the United States, said in a report that a confidential source had given it 14 internal case files regarding allegations of sexual offences against civilians in the African country, committed by UN peacekeepers. Moroccan soldiers are accused of sexual misconduct along with others representing eight nationalities, namely: Pakistan, Zambia, Republic of Congo, Burundi, Egypt, Cameroon, Gabon and Niger.Previous investigations were accused by Code Blue Campaign of not probing in depth the complaints that were made against the UN troops, and that investigators were “overwhelming” biased against alleged victims.The NGO said that in eight of cases “alleged victims were not questioned to provide evidence; potentially corroborating witnesses were not sought out for interviews”.The NGO pointed to a case where a Moroccan solider is accused of sexual assault. His alleged victim said he assaulted her in Obo, eastern CAR. The woman said she was questioned for 13 days by nine men from the UN and local authorities before concluding “her allegation was false and intended to discredit MINUSCA and gain compensation”.In March 2016 a UN report indicated four Moroccan peacekeepers are accused of sexual misconduct, three in CAR and the fourth one in the Democratic Republic of Congo. read more

Portugal and Slovenia call for greater representation on Security Council

24 September 2008The leaders of Portugal and Slovenia today called for the membership of the Security Council to be expanded, saying broader representation is needed to ensure effective multilateralism in dealing with the biggest global challenges. The leaders of Portugal and Slovenia today called for the membership of the Security Council to be expanded, saying broader representation is needed to ensure effective multilateralism in dealing with the biggest global challenges.Portuguese President Aníbal Cavaco Silva told the General Assembly on the second day of its annual high-level debate that with the United Nations providing the best forum for tackling such challenges, its organs such as the Security Council must have greater diversity and transparency.“In a globalized and interdependent world only strong multilateral organizations can promote the fundamental values of peace, democracy, human rights and sustainable development,” he said.Mr. Cavaco Silva laid out three essential premises – giving the UN the necessary means to fulfil its mission, assuring greater representation within the 15-member Security Council and other UN organs, and guaranteeing full compliance with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. “Is it reasonable to continue with a Security Council without reforming its methods of work, in which countries like Brazil and India do not have a permanent seat?” he asked.He also said Africa should continue to receive priority attention. “Peace, sustainable development, access to education and health [and] the integration of African economies in international markets are essential goals on the road to building a more just, peaceful and equitable social order,” he declared.Turning to terrorism, he said implementation of a global strategy was vital for fighting this “common enemy,” but respect for human rights and fundamental liberties were essential in this battle.“Another ‘common enemy,’ slower but equally destructive, is hunger and extreme poverty,” he added. “Here, too, there have been many words and some action, but much more is needed.”Slovenia’s President proposed that the Security Council be expanded to include as many as 25 members, saying a transformation of the world’s major structures for maintaining peace and security was long overdue.Danilo Türk told the General Assembly that incremental improvement of the Council’s methods was far from sufficient.He called for six additional permanent members from all regions of the world to join China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States.“There should be an additional category of non-permanent members with a more frequent rotation, six in any particular composition of the Security Council, elected in accordance with a formula to be determined by the General Assembly and alternating every second two-year term,” Mr. Türk said.He added that the remaining eight non-permanent members would be elected in line with the principle of equitable geographic distribution, thus ensuring the new, expanded Council would not have more than 25 members.Mr. Türk said a spirit of major change should infect the wider international system, given that “we live in a turbulent world at a turbulent time,” especially considering the recent turmoil in the global financial markets.“We live at a time requiring transformation… The UN should look to policies with a transformational potential and capable of producing transformational effects in a not too distant future.” read more

On World AIDS Day UN officials say end to epidemic is within

As the world heads into the fourth decade of AIDS, it is finally in a position to end the epidemic, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today, leading a chorus of United Nations officials in calling for the political will, investments and determination to reach this goal.“Momentum is on our side. Let us use it to end AIDS – once and for all,” Mr. Ban said in his message for World AIDS Day, observed on 1 December each year.“The progress we have made so far is proof that we can realize our vision of zero new HIV infections, zero discrimination and zero AIDS-related deaths,” he added.The number of new HIV infections has fallen by more than 20 per cent since 1997, Mr. Ban noted. New infections are continuing to decline in most parts of the world. In addition, treatment has averted 2.5 million AIDS-related deaths since 1985, saving 700,000 lives last year alone.“But, to end AIDS, we need to deliver even greater results,” stressed the Secretary-General. “We must build on the political commitments, investments, energy, activism and determination that have brought us to this turning point.”Michel Sidibé, Executive Director of the Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), noted it has been a year of achievements, of collective action, of resilience and of courage. Despite the economic downturn that has stretched the AIDS response to its limits, millions of lives have been saved, as HIV treatment and prevention efforts continue to show results, he said. Annie Lennox and Michel Sidibé call upon you to bring an end to AIDS“Never before in the history of AIDS have we reached a moment where we are able to stand up and say with conviction the end of AIDS is in sight,” he stated in his message.“The road before us is clear and we can accelerate ahead with smart investments, capitalizing on scientific advancements and evidence and respecting human rights,” Mr. Sidibé said, calling on countries, donors and others to reach the global investment target of $22-24 billion for the AIDS response. “Only together can we secure the future and provide greater and long-term dividends.”In a related development, Mr. Sidibé welcomed China’s decision to fill its HIV resource gap by increasing domestic investments. The new commitment from China comes at a crucial moment, according to UNAIDS, as resources for AIDS are declining and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria is facing a major setback in resource mobilization.The theme of this year’s World AIDS Day is “Getting to Zero,” which reflects both optimism and the need to do much more, the President of the General Assembly said in his message, noting that the challenges ahead are “sobering.”While more than 6.5 million people now receive life-saving treatment, 7.6 million still have no access to it, said Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser. In 2010 alone, 1.8 million people died of AIDS-related illnesses, and there were 2.7 million new HIV infections.“We cannot allow hard-won gains to unravel,” said Mr. Al-Nasser. “I call on all stakeholders to uphold their commitments, and to work together to sustain and accelerate the progress.”A number of other senior UN officials issued messages, adding their voices to the call for sustained action to finally rid the world of the epidemic. They include the Executive Director of the UN Office of Drugs and Crime (UNODC), Yury Fedotov; the Director-General of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), Irina Bokova; and the Director-General of the International Labour Organization (ILO), Juan Somavia.The UN World Food Programme (WFP) marked the Day by emphasizing the importance of providing food and nutrition support to people living with HIV and their families.“Poor nutritional status and HIV can reinforce each other in a vicious circle,” said Martin Bloem, WFP’s chief of nutrition and HIV/AIDS policy. “WFP works with communities and health centres around the world to ensure that people affected by HIV and AIDS receive comprehensive support that nourishes and strengthens their bodies.”In 2010, WFP supported 2.5 million people in 44 countries through its HIV and tuberculosis programmes, providing food and nutrition support to some 1.3 million people living with HIV as part of their antiretroviral treatment (ART) or TB treatment and another 1.2 million people affected by these diseases. It aims to reach about the same number of people this year.Yesterday, the UN World Health Organization (WHO), the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and UNAIDS released their report on the global HIV/AIDS response, highlighting the fact that there is a very real possibility of getting ahead of the epidemic.This can only be achieved, however, by both sustaining and accelerating the current momentum over the next decade and beyond, the agencies stressed.Meanwhile, a UN Development Programme (UNDP) study released today says that households in Asia that include people living with HIV exhaust their savings and liquidate assets at a disproportionately high rate, often plunging into “irreversible poverty.”Catastrophic health care costs, stigma, unemployment, and bad credit also mean these households – which start out with fewer assets – consume less food of lower quality and keep fewer children in school, said the report, which calls for urgent mitigation measures, including HIV-sensitive social protection to help tens of thousands of households in the region. 1 December 2011As the world heads into the fourth decade of AIDS, it is finally in a position to end the epidemic, Ban Ki-moon said today, leading a chorus of UN officials in calling for the political will, investments and determination to reach this goal. read more

Policewomen and social workers help children in aftermath of Indonesia quake UN

The first of three dozen policewomen and social workers, supported by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), have arrived on the Indonesian island of Java to monitor child rights and trafficking issues and provide psychosocial support for children in the aftermath of last month’s devastating earthquake that killed more than 6,000 people.Speaking to reporters in New York today, UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said the move was part of ongoing humanitarian efforts to assist the victims of the 27 May earthquake, which measured 5.9 on the Richter Scale and seriously affected the provinces of Yogyakarta and Central Java, displacing at least 200,000 people.Relief operations continue to provide emergency shelter, medical assistance, clean water and sanitation, and food to survivors, and, to date, over 90 per cent of them have received treatment for their injuries from the Indonesian medical authorities and international partners, the UN Office of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said in a news release.Partners in the Emergency Shelter group have distributed over 17,000 tents since last weekend, but attention is now focusing on providing families with the materials and tools they need to repair and build temporary shelters. Some 45,000 tarpaulins have been brought in, and wheelbarrows and spades will arrive in the next few days. Around 400 tonnes of dried noodles, hi-energy biscuits and rice have been distributed to almost 200,000 people in the earthquake-affected area, and a further 860 tons of food will be delivered by UN agencies and partners, led by the World Food Programme, in the next three days, targeting 100,000 people in the most difficult areas. Food supplies from WFP have so far reached 173,000 people and a joint needs assessment is now being carried out to help determine where needs are greatest. Fifteen children’s centres are now up and running, with the help of the Government and various UN and other organizations, OCHA said, adding that policewomen trained to monitor child rights and provide psychosocial support have been deployed to two of these centres, and more are being trained.It is now anticipated that the worst of the emergency phase will be over in the next seven days, after which there is likely to be a period of sustained relief. During the remainder of the three-month emergency phase declared by the Government, the international community will work on early and medium-term recovery, OCHA said. read more

Macron hunts for French rural votes Le Pen cheers new ally

by Angela Charlton, The Associated Press Posted Apr 29, 2017 7:11 am MDT Last Updated Apr 29, 2017 at 11:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Macron hunts for French rural votes, Le Pen cheers new ally New campaign ally Nicolas Dupont-Aignan, left, and far-right candidate for the 2017 French presidential election Marine Le Pen attend a media conference in Paris, France, Saturday, April 29, 2017. Far-right candidate Marine Le Pen says her new campaign ally, Nicolas Dupont-Aignan, would be her prime minister if she is elected. (AP Photo/Michel Euler) USSEAU, France – French presidential front-runner Emmanuel Macron hunted Saturday for votes in rural France where his far-right opponent, Marine Le Pen, is making inroads among country folk who feel left behind.Back in Paris, Le Pen announced that if she wins the presidency in the May 7 runoff she would name former rival Nicolas Dupont-Aignan, her new campaign ally, as her prime minister. The move aims to secure the nearly 1.7 million votes that the anti-European Union conservative got when he was eliminated from the presidential race in the first round of balloting.Since many Dupont-Aignan voters had already been expected to switch to Le Pen for her runoff against the centrist Macron, the alliance is unlikely to prove a massive electoral boost for her.Symbolically, however, it punctured a hole in hopes — expressed by mainstream politicians on both the left and the right — that French voters would unite against Le Pen’s extremism in the runoff. That did happen in 2002, when her father, Jean-Marie Le Pen, made it to the presidential runoff but lost overwhelmingly to Jacques Chirac.At a news conference with Dupont-Aignan, Marine Le Pen celebrated his backing as the creation of “a great patriotic and republican alliance” and said they will campaign “hand-in-hand.”“It’s a historic day, because we are putting France’s interests before personal or partisan ones,” Dupont-Aignan said.Macron said their far-right and right-wing alliance made the campaign battle lines even clearer.“There is a reactionary, nationalist, anti-European right-wing that has structured itself and which, today, is an important political force,” he said. “Facing it is a progressive bloc that I represent, and which defends France.”Macron is not saying yet who he would name to lead his government if he is elected. In a radio interview Saturday, he merely said he has “people in mind.”Venturing into rural France to combat Le Pen’s arguments that he represents just the big-city elite, the former economy minister plugged his proposals to reverse the economic and social decline in farming areas. Macron promised to modernize phone and internet connections in rural areas and vigorously defended the EU as an essential market for French farmers.On an impromptu tour of the farmers’ market in the central town of Poitiers, Macron listened to a grain farmer complain about low-price competition from other EU countries and a vegetable farmer lament about the difficulty of getting loans to upgrade farm equipment.As the smell of goat cheeses wafted across the stalls, Macron rebuffed Le Pen’s criticisms of the EU with a vigorous defence of European free trade, saying her plans to leave the bloc and its agricultural aid program would spell the end of French farming.“Rural areas need an open, conquering France,” Macron said. “Our agriculture needs Europe and openness.”Macron promised that no more schools would close in rural areas if he is elected and said his government would intervene directly if mobile operators fail within 18 months to install high-speed fiber optic and phone networks “everywhere.”Le Pen has made the plight of French farmers a theme of her campaign, citing farm closures, rural poverty and farmers’ suicides.The tidy village of Usseau, where Macron visited farmer Patrick Moron on Saturday, gave 120 of its votes, one third of the total, to Le Pen in round one, almost double the 66 votes it gave to Macron.“We have wines, we have cheeses, we had the advantage for a long time,” said Moron, a Macron supporter. “But we are no longer moving forward.”Neighbouring farmer Dominique Marchand, who rotates harvests of colza, corn, wheat and sunflowers, lamented the growing scarcity of rural schools and medical facilities.“Sometimes we have to go 30 kilometres (20 miles) to find a doctor, or drive 45 minutes to the nearest emergency room,” he said. “It’s getting worse and worse.”Speaking after attending an EU summit on Saturday, outgoing French President Francois Hollande warned voters that abstaining on May 7 could help Le Pen score high enough to encourage her to run again if she isn’t elected this time. He said voters on both the left and the right should have no qualms about voting for the centrist Macron.“It shouldn’t even be a subject of discussion,” Hollande said. “A ballot for Macron, you think of it as the ballot that keeps out the extreme right.”Abstaining from voting in the runoff, Hollande added, would just encourage Le Pen in the future. The far-right candidate came in third in the presidential race in 2012, and will end up no less than second in 2017.“The lower she is, the less strong her ambitions can be for tomorrow,” Hollande said.Dupont-Aignan got 4.7 per cent of the first-round vote on April 23 — compared to Macron’s 24 per cent and 21 per cent for Le Pen — with a platform that described the EU as “inefficient, intrusive, anti-democratic and authoritarian.” The right-winger called for the EU to be replaced by “a community of European states” with greater national powers for its members.Le Pen’s far-right National Front rejoiced over the alliance with Dupont-Aignan. Florian Philippot, a National Front vice-president, told BFM television this was “a turning point in this campaign.”Still, the alliance caused splits within Dupont-Aignan’s own party. It prompted the departure of vice-president Dominique Jamet, who told BFM that the Le Pen-Dupont-Aignan alliance is “a couple that doesn’t please me.”___John Leicester in Paris contributed. read more

Body heat scanners used on the LA Metro are deployed in London

Scanners used on the Los Angeles Metro to detect deadly weapons are being trialled in London in a bid to tackle the knife crime epidemic.The space age technology works by revealing objects that block body heat and can detect concealed weapons including knives, guns and even explosive devices from a distance of 30 feet.It is hoped the equipment will allow police officers to identify suspects carrying knives in busy areas without the need for body searches.A trial of the technology – which was developed  began on Monday at Stratford station in east London, the scene of a number of violent incidents in the past.The initial five day pilot, which is being run by the British Transport Police (BTP), comes in the wake of a number of fatal stabbings across the capital in recent weeks.Minister for Crime, Policing and Fire, Kit Malthouse, said: “We are pulling out all the stops in a battle against knife crime in London and across the country. “20,000 more police officers will help but new technology can make an enormous impact on public safety, as this equipment shows.“No one should feel they can walk the streets with a knife and expect to get away with it.” Assistant Chief Constable Robin Smith from the British Transport Police, said: “Fortunately, knife crime on the rail network is very low, however we recognise the important role our Force plays in identifying those intent on carrying lethal weapons to commit atrocious crimes.  “In support of the Home Office and other police forces, we are keen to explore how technology can assist us in tackling violent crime head on. We are pleased to partner with them in trialing the Thruvision technology at Stratford station.”  Transport Security Minister, Baroness Vere, said: “Improving safety at stations is paramount to ensuring that everyone can use our railways with confidence, and technology should be at the forefront of that mission. This innovative trial is part of this Government’s wider crackdown on knife crime.”The technology enables police officers to see the size, shape and location of any concealed item. It does not show any intimate body parts and it is impossible to tell an individual’s gender, age or ethnicity from the imagery it produces.

UKIP leader forced to deny own statement that he lost a close

first_img UKIP LEADER PAUL Nuttall has said he did not lose any close friends in the Hillsborough disaster despite a releasing a statement claiming he had.The embattled leader has come under fire since it emerged that a statement on UKIP’s website was completely inaccurate.Yesterday, Nuttall was challenged by English radio station Radio City News where he initially tried to deny the claim.The presenter, who was also at the game where 96 Liverpool fans lost their lives in 1989, read Nuttall his own statement over the air, with the political leader adding: ”I haven’t lost a close, personal friend. I’ve lost someone who I know.”In a statement about attempts to block the publication of files to do with the Hillsborough inquiry, he wrote: “Without them being made public we will never get to the bottom of that appalling tragedy when 96 Liverpool fans including close personal friends of mine who lost their lives.” Dortmund and Liverpool line up as supporters remember the victims of the Hillsborough disaster last year. Source: Jon Super/PAHowever, he did defend himself and said he was there that day.“I have witnesses. I have people who will stand up in court. And it’s cruel, it’s nasty. And it’s making out my family are lying, which is not fair or right,” he added.A press officer for Nuttall has since offered her resignation over the controversy. Lynda Roughey has said he was “entirely responsible” for the inaccurate statement.She said in a statement: “Paul is a man of great integrity and would not say something he knew to be untrue. It’s me who has made this mistake, and one I feel absolutely terrible about.“I am frankly mortified at the distress this issue has caused Paul and may have caused to anyone involved with the Hillsborough tragedy.”Read: Enda Kenny takes a number of different positions on Zappone conversationRead: 5 serious questions for the government that Dáil ‘clarifications’ did not clarify By Garreth MacNamee Feb 15th 2017, 7:42 AM Share2 Tweet Email Short URL 18 Comments Image: PA Wire/PA Images 11,789 Views Image: PA Wire/PA Images UKIP leader forced to deny own statement that he lost a close friend at Hillsborough disaster A press officer for Nuttall has since offered her resignation over the controversy.

Behind The Atlantics Brand Reinvention

first_imgAccording to Smith, The Atlantic’s brand had suffered from a lack of definition. His team decided to take the same approach that consumer goods manufacturers do. “People tend to talk about editorial and not the brand,” said Smith, who added that the media industry tends to lack brand managers, instead relying on top editors for brand management. “Editors-in-chief are not equipped to do brand management,” he said.An examination of the points where the magazine was at the top of its game lead to the “Brave Thinking” tagline that defined the brand’s “essence.” That tagline, said Smith, became the company’s north star. “If you have this organizing idea, it simplifies so much. It creates an organizational sense of discipline that’s very powerful.”Digital FirstSmith also pushed for a digital-first strategy. He stressed that print is not dead, but taking this approach allowed the company to unlock its grip on traditional revenue sources. Importantly, the Web site’s overhaul was set up as an insurgency on the print brand. “If our mission was to kill the magazine, what would we do?” said Smith, who added that a digital competitor was going to do that anyway, so they did it themselves.For the year 2010, Smith is projecting that digital will account for 39 percent of the brand’s revenue.Atlantic Media also set up a marketing services division, which follows along with efforts by Meredith and, more recently Hearst, which bought digital marketing firm iCrossing. “The question for us on this side is how do you differentiate yourself from the ad networks?” said Smith. “It’s the idea of being a marketing services company where you do something very deep and interactive with the audience.”Smith has also built up the company’s live event platform, and noted this is an area where consumer publishers often fall flat. “Consumer publishers don’t view events as a profit center,” he said. Accordingly, live event revenues have doubled over the last two years.Talent, said Smith, is “the key differential to success,” and he spends about 55 percent of his time on talent-related issues. “Nothing is more important to business success than your standards for talent.”Throughout the brand overhaul, said Smith, $2 million in costs were removed from the operation. “The products are better and we have a smaller staff and more recognition,” he said. The Atlantic, a 153-year-old magazine, suffered from a protracted decline in revenues and rising costs starting in the 1960s. A dramatic multi-platform overhaul of the brand starting in 2007 has put it back on track to profitability. In his keynote address today at the FOLIO: Show, Atlantic Media president Justin Smith said The Atlantic is projected to have a profitable fourth quarter and a “multi-million dollar” profit in 2011.The goal, said Smith of the new management team that owner David Bradley organized in 2007, was to “take a brand that lost millions and turn it into something of lasting stability and value.”The comeback was structured around creating a solid brand identity; a digital-first strategy; building a marketing services operation; expanding live events; and maintaining a relentless focus on hiring top talent.last_img read more

Vendome Group Acquires Healthcare and Capital Markets Conference
Vendome Group Acquires Healthcare and Capital Markets Conference

first_imgHealthcare and real estate media and events company Vendome Group has acquired the Healthcare and Capital Markets Conference (HCap), from Lincoln Healthcare Leadership, the company announced. “We are actively looking at all sorts of investment opportunities in the healthcare market and beyond,” Butler adds. “While events have been a strong focus over the past years, we remain very interested in digital and print media and related areas as well.” “In December of 2015, Vendome’s Behavioral Healthcare business unit launched its first investor-oriented event with great success,” Vendome founder and CEO Jane Butler tells Folio: in an email exchange. “We became aware of the Healthcare and Capital Markets Conference through a mutual exhibitor and saw an immediate opportunity to replicate [that success].” The company declined to share financial terms of the acquisition. In September, the company announced a partnership with credentialing standards developer IC&RC to expand several of its 2016 events with content from IC&RC’s Annual Training Conference. That announcement came just weeks after Vendome acquired the Ben Franklin Institute, an addiction and behavioral healthcare information provider. Most recently, Vendome launched the iASC, which Butler describes as “an ongoing educational warehouse for those who operate and work in long-term care settings.” Over 30 national or regional events are planned for 2016 across Vendome’s various divisions, according to Butler.center_img Launched in 2006, HCap aims to bring together healthcare executives and private equity or venture capital investors. It will join Vendome’s Healthcare group, which produces magazine titles Healthcare Informatics and Addiction Professional, among others, as well as a series of live events such as the National Conference on Addiction Disorders. Dates for the next Healthcare and Capital Markets Conference, traditionally held in Washington, D.C. in November or December, are forthcoming, according to a prepared statement. Within the Healthcare group, HCap will become part of Vendome’s Senior/Long-Term Care unit, which includes the magazine brand Long-Term Living, and will be integrated with Vendome’s newly-launched Institute for the Advancement of Senior Care (iASC). Vendome’s event business has grown exponentially in recent years, Butler tells Folio:, now comprising 40 percent of company revenues.last_img read more

Supreme Court Rejects Case Over Confederate Emblem On Mississippi Flag
Supreme Court Rejects Case Over Confederate Emblem On Mississippi Flag

first_img Share Rogelio V. Solis/APA state flag of Mississippi is unfurled by Sons of Confederate Veterans and other groups in 2016 on the grounds of the state Capitol in Jackson, Miss.The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to take up a case challenging the use of a Confederate emblem on the Mississippi state flag.Carlos Moore, an African-American lawyer from Mississippi who petitioned the court, had argued in court documents that the flag, visible in state buildings, courts and schools, symbolically expresses support for white supremacy. The flag incorporates the Confederate battle flag in its upper left corner.The justices did not provide a reason for rejecting the appeal. A federal appeals court in April rejected the lawsuit owing to lack of standing, as NPR’s Camila Domonoske explained:“The central question was whether the man had standing to sue — which depended on whether he had experienced an ‘injury in fact.’ The appeals court didn’t deny that the flag might have a deep and personal effect on the man. They said he demonstrated that he feels stigmatized.“But feeling stigmatized, they said, isn’t the kind of injury you can sue the state over.”In his appeal to the Supreme Court, Moore argued that the lower court interpreted the 14th Amendment’s equal protection clause too narrowly.He called for the Supreme Court to declare Mississippi statutes on how the flag should be designed and displayed as unconstitutional. He also wanted the justices to deem unconstitutional a statute that called for schoolchildren in the state — such as his own daughter — to be taught “proper respect” for the flag and for the ” ‘official pledge of the State of Mississippi,’ which reads: I salute the flag of Mississippi and the sovereign state for which it stands with pride in her history and achievements and with confidence in her future under the guidance of Almighty God.““The message in Mississippi’s flag has always been one of racial hostility and insult and it is pervasive and unavoidable by both children and adults,” Moore’s appeal reads. “The state’s continued expression of its message of racial disparagement sends a message to African-American citizens of Mississippi that they are second class citizens.”Moore said in court documents that for him, exposure to the flag is “painful, threatening, and offensive.” He added that seeing the flag at courthouses creates a “hostile work and business environment.”In a Facebook post shared by his law firm on Monday, Moore praised his lawyers for “a valiant fight.” He wrote: “If the state flag is to change it will be up to the people or the elected representatives. The public sentiment continues to change and I trust the flag will change in due season.”He told The Associated Press that he has received five death threats because of the lawsuit.Moore’s case was listed as one of dozens of cases that the Supreme Court decided not to take up, as is standard for the top court.Mississippi has been embroiled in debates about the flag for years, as Camila has reported. “In 2001, the state voted to stick with the controversial design. But some official bodies — cities, counties and universities, including the flagship University of Mississippi — refuse to fly the banner.”Copyright 2017 NPR.

So a 3D printer proves quite handy as a temporary source for parts.Just last week, Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 121 successfully flew an F-35B Lightning II aircraft with a plastic bumper supplied by CLB-31’s printer.Chief Warrant Officer 2 Daniel Rodriguez with Combat Logistics Battalion 31, 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, holds a 3D-printed plastic bumper for an F-35B Lightning II landing gear door aboard the USS Wasp (LHD-1) (via U.S. Marine Corps/Cpl. Stormy Mendez)Despite its small size, replacing the part would typically require an entirely new door assembly—a process the Department of Defense called “time-consuming and expensive.”Instead, the squadron was able to print the bumper and have it approved and installed within days.CLB-31 also 3D printed a brand new lens cap for a camera attached to an unmanned ground vehicle.This level of automation, according to the DoD, fits right in with the amphibious armed service branch’s focus on self-sufficiency.“Finding innovative solutions to complex problems really does harken back to our core principles as Marines,” Marine Corps Sgt. Adrian Willis said. “I’m proud to be a part of a new program that could be a game-changer for the Marine Corps.”Templates for the plastic bumper and lens cover will be uploaded to a Marine Corps-wide 3D printing database, accessible to any unit with the same needs.“I think 3D printing is definitely the future,” Willis, a computer and telephone technician, said. “It’s absolutely the direction the Marine Corps needs to be going.”center_img Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Why BudgetWatching Business Owners Should Give the Latest Quicken a Look

first_imgWhat’s new: The budgeting tool — which generates a suggested monthly spend based on your financial data — renders spending visually using colored bar graphs. Things like interest rates are adjusted by a number of colored sliders and can be viewed over a number of periods, including a 12-month outlook. The debt reduction tool, which helps users design a repayment plan for credit cards and other debt, has been simplified. Users now can input their credit card information, download interest rates and minimum payment information and then Quicken formulates a payment plan. The tool allows you to see how you can prioritize debts, such as paying off smaller debts first. Quicken 2012 starts at a one-time fee of $30 for the starter edition, which is aimed at consumers, $60 for the deluxe edition, which includes debt reduction tools, and $90 for the premier edition which includes more investment management options.What you might like: The look and feel has been improved over previous versions, including the overall experience of the budget and debt tools. For example, the colored debt reduction line graph makes it easy to see how much interest you will pay over time. Quicken also says the new software is faster and can handle larger data files than last year’s version, which is probably true.What you might not like: We encountered the same problem we always do with Quicken software: You have to double check your entries. As powerful an automated tool as Quicken is, it makes assumptions on how it categorizes spending and expenses it imports from credit cards and checking accounts, grouping expenses into categories such as food and dining, automotive or entertainment.These labels are correct a lot of the time but, to be IRS-ready, you’ll need to sit down each month and confirm that Quicken is modeling your finances properly.Bottom line: While these improvements are nice, they aren’t dramatic. If last year’s model — or really any model of Quicken — is doing the job for you, then you may consider sticking with it. This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now October 20, 2011 Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.center_img If you’ve been searching for an easier way to keep track of your budget and managing expenses, then you might consider buying or upgrading to the recently-released 2012 version of Quicken. While it isn’t a major overhaul compared to last year’s unveiling of its amped-up Web-friendly capabilities, the latest version of this popular finance management software includes a significant face-lift to the tools that help users plan spending and reduce debt.Quicken 2012 pulls in financial data from the Web, primarily from online bank accounts and credit cards, and then analyzes it to render a “real-time” picture of a user’s finances. Then it helps make budgeting decisions, pay bills and save money. These aren’t new features, but Quicken has updated the look and feel of some of its budgeting tools to make them more intuitive.Considering Quicken is a favorite of small business owners trying to stay on top of their finances, we arranged for a prelaunch demo. Here’s a look at what makes it a worthwhile investment for your business, and also why it may not be. min read Enroll Now for Freelast_img read more

Kennedy remarks on dolphin kill catches Tokyo off guard
Kennedy remarks on dolphin kill catches Tokyo off guard

first_imgRelated posts:Japan dolphin hunt goes on after slaughter US, China pledge cooperation on climate change At least 17 dead as tornadoes strike southern US California fires expected to continue The Japanese loved the idea of Caroline Kennedy in Tokyo – Camelot meets the Chrysanthemum Throne. But what if the new U.S. ambassador proves to be a handful for a nation that prizes politeness and propriety above all else?Tongues are wagging around Nagatacho, Tokyo’s Capitol Hill, following Kennedy’s tweet about a notorious annual dolphin hunt in the western town of Taiji – the topic of Oscar-winning 2009 documentary “The Cove.”Kennedy was “deeply concerned by inhumaneness of drive hunt dolphin killing,” she wrote, noting the U.S. opposes the practice of prodding hundreds of dolphins into a cove for slaughter or capture.It’s a brutal business, one that the townspeople passionately defend on the grounds of heritage and tradition. They work aggressively to stop film crews from chronicling a hunt that seems more the stuff of 1814 than 2014. (Activists say the annual hunt became a “tradition” only in the 1960s.) Whatever the official U.S. policy, Kennedy’s criticism caught the Tokyo establishment off guard, raising questions about whether she will be a more outspoken and unpredictable U.S. envoy than expected.Kennedy’s first foray into the sensitive waters of domestic Japanese affairs came after Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s Dec. 26 visit to Yasukuni Shrine. The site, which honors 14 Class A war criminals from World War II, is downright radioactive in a region that believes Japan hasn’t atoned for its wartime aggression. Kennedy’s team surprised many in Tokyo by expressing disappointment with Abe’s action. The question is whether the dolphin tweet is an aberration or a sign of a newly activist embassy.If words are cheap, then tweets are little more than bankrupt thought fragments. But if Kennedy becomes a consistent and thought-provoking voice in Tokyo, broaching issues officialdom would prefer the U.S. ignored, her ambassadorship will be a fascinating and potentially fruitful one. I, for one, would encourage her to opine early and often on any number of topics: empowering women in the workforce and politics; improving geopolitical relations in North Asia; encouraging young people to go into public service and to question authority; inviting America’s top entrepreneurs to spend more time in Japan to encourage startups; and, yes, speaking out about issues like Taiji and also Japan’s continuing whale hunts.Ambassadors naturally must be careful and respect local cultures. Kennedy also needs to watch the hypocrisy factor. Japanese are plenty horrified about U.S. methods for raising and slaughtering cows, pigs and chickens in factory farms, not to mention the passion for genetically modified food. Chinese officials wonder how animal-rights folks like Brigitte Bardot have time to bash their culinary quirks when there’s plenty to complain about in her native France. Hey, Brigitte – fancy some foie gras?But Japanese seem not to understand how severely issues like Taiji and whaling damage its “soft power” around the globe. The headlines generated in New York, Zurich or Sydney from anime, manga, cosplay and food conventions can be quickly undone by a three-minute BBC or CNN report about bloody waters and mammals culled for questionable reasons. My own favorite canard is Japan’s “research whaling” program. OK, so which website can I visit to read all the research and insights gleaned from harpooning 1,000 or more whales every year? Oh, that’s right. There isn’t one.That’s precisely the point Yoko Ono made Monday in an open letter to the Taiji fishermen, urging them to halt the annual bloodbath for the “future of Japan.” She warned that this unsightly tradition “will give an excuse for big countries and their children in China, India and Russia to speak ill of Japan. I am sure that it is not easy, but please consider the safety of the future of Japan, surrounded by many powerful countries which are always looking for the chance to weaken the power of our country. At this very politically sensitive time, the hunt will make the children of the world hate the Japanese.”“Hate” is a strong word coming from the widow of John Lennon, who wrote pop standards like “Imagine,” “Give Peace a Chance” and “All You Need is Love.” But Ono’s point is a timely one. With one brief trip to a Tokyo shrine, Abe squandered all the great international press about Japan winning the 2020 Olympics, or racing to help typhoon-ravaged Filipinos. These inhumane dolphin and whale hunts are equally self-destructive.Kennedy’s own comments were an unusual move for a U.S. envoy in Japan. Previous ambassadors such as John Roos, Thomas Schieffer and Howard Baker did fine jobs, but were uncontroversial and, for many Japanese, forgettable. Kennedy arrived in November with considerable fanfare. She’s the only surviving child of President John F. Kennedy, the first woman to represent the U.S. in Japan and quite the wild card.The thing is, the Japanese and U.S. governments are as close as friends get in this chaotic world of ours. Friends should always be honest with each other, and that goes too for Kenichiro Sasae, Japan’s envoy in Washington. It’s certainly possible that Kennedy’s dolphin comment was a one-off and that the outcry it inspired will chasten her Twitter musings. But that would be shame. We live in dynamic times. Why not spark a dynamic and unscripted discussion from time to time between friends?William Pesek is a Bloomberg View columnist.© 2013, Bloomberg News Facebook Commentslast_img read more

BURNABY BC – The hero of The Good Doctor a y
BURNABY BC – The hero of The Good Doctor a y

first_img BURNABY, B.C. – The hero of “The Good Doctor,” a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome, represents the show’s title in more ways than one.Dr. Shaun Murphy is exceptionally skilled at curing patients, but he’s also morally good, able to see the light in others even if he can’t always connect.The optimistic character is also having a positive effect on English actor Freddie Highmore, who previously played killer Norman Bates on “Bates Motel.”“As a Brit, I’m probably quite cynical in general,” said the 26-year-old with a laugh during a recent interview on the show’s set in Metro Vancouver.“I think he’s a lovely person to get to inhabit. Getting to portray that version of the world that he sees or he believes in, his faith in humanity, I think is great, especially at a time like today when there’s so much negativity.”Through Murphy and other doctors at the fictional San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital, the series explores what it means to be a good person. It’s a hopeful remedy for a dark news cycle, and that might be one reason why it became a runaway hit last year, cast members said.The drama from David Shore, the Canadian creator of “House,” returns to CTV Monday at 10 p.m. The second season finds Murphy grappling with the aftermath of a surgical mistake and facing the brain-cancer diagnosis of his mentor, Dr. Aaron Glassman (Richard Schiff).Highmore wrote the season premiere and though it’s his writing debut on “The Good Doctor,” he previously picked up script credits on “Bates Motel.”“It came about somewhat naturally,” he said. “On ‘Bates,’ it seemed odd to me to invest so much in the four, five months of filming, because we only did 10 episodes, and then sort of step away and do nothing … I wanted to live in that world longer.“The same applies to ‘The Good Doctor’ — that desire to be continually involved and to embrace the show as much as possible and help out as much as I possibly can.”Since the show’s popular debut, it has moved into a larger set with a vast operating theatre, patient rooms, a nurse’s station and long hallways that allow for lengthy walk-and-talk scenes.Nicholas Gonzalez, who plays Dr. Neil Melendez, remembered reading the pilot and instantly knowing how good it was.“So much of it, though, from the beginning, really depended on what Freddie was going to do. That was going to make the show or sink it,” he said.Highmore admitted to feeling some anxiety about getting his performance right. He did extensive research on autism and continues to work with a full-time consultant.He quoted the consultant as saying, “When you’ve met one person with autism, you’ve met one person with autism.”“Shaun is never going to represent everyone who’s on the spectrum,” Highmore said. “Of course it’s lovely when people who are on the spectrum or are close to those on the spectrum see a resemblance.“But he can never stand for everyone, in the same way a neurotypical lead of a show will never represent everyone who’s neurotypical.”Gonzalez praised Highmore’s performance as genuine, rather than relying on mannerisms or “shtick.”“When you’re opposite Freddie, Shaun is learning. Shaun is processing. Shaun is making mistakes,” he said. “It’s not impression. He doesn’t slip into the character and play around. He lives it a lot too.”The show also features characters who challenge Murphy and don’t treat him with kid gloves, including Hill Harper’s Dr. Marcus Andrews, the new hospital president, and Fiona Gubelmann’s Dr. Morgan Reznick, a combative surgical resident.Gubelmann highlighted a scene that didn’t make it into the show but was featured in the DVD outtakes, where Reznick playfully throws Murphy’s badge on the ground in order to get to an ultrasound machine first.“She’s going to treat Shaun like everybody else. She doesn’t look down on him. She treats him like an equal,” she said.Highmore said he wanted to avoid a stereotype of people with autism and savant syndrome being “superheroes,” and so he appreciated the episode where Murphy made the surgical error.“He’s going to make insights that others won’t be able to make, and see things that others can’t,” he said. “But that also means that he has certain weaknesses that we don’t shy away from talking about and explaining.”— Follow @ellekane on Twitter.
