Edmonton theatre troupe cuts ties with former artistic director over rape culture

first_imgAdvertisement Advertisement Twitter Craddock served as Rapid Fire’s artistic director from 2004 to 2008 but had continued to work alongside the troupe as an actor, director, producer and playwright, largely during the annual Edmonton Fringe Festival. Craddock is a mainstay of Edmonton’s theatre and film industry, with more than 30 years of credits to his name.In the statement, Rapid Fire management indicated that Craddock had “publicly admitted to unacceptable behaviour” in violation of the company’s own zero-tolerance harassment policy.The ongoing scandal surrounding sexual violence and abuse of power in the entertainment industry — triggered by reports about film producer Harvey Weinstein — provoked the theatre company to cut ties, the statement suggests.‘Enough is enough’“This week so many people around the world have engaged in a large conversation of sexual harassment and abuse; much of that conversation focusing on issues of sexual harassment and abuse in the entertainment industry.“The improv industry has its fair share of predators and we know that at times in Rapid Fire Theatre’s 37-year history we have featured some of those individuals in our performing ensemble. Enough is enough.”The statement said Craddock “has publicly admitted to unacceptable behaviour in violation of our own harassment policy.”READ MORE An Edmonton theatre company is cutting ties with its former artistic director after the acclaimed actor and playwright said on Facebook he has contributed to “rape culture.”The Rapid Fire Theatre, a local improv troupe, issued a public statement on Wednesday announcing that Chris Craddock will no longer be affiliated with the company.Rapid Fire’s move comes after Craddock posted a confession on his personal Facebook page about the way he has treated women.

Ban urges renewed push for IsraeliPalestinian peace

11 May 2009Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today stressed the need to generate momentum in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, warning that the situation on the ground could worsen easily without fresh efforts by both sides as well as the international community. “After the inconclusive results of last year’s negotiations, and the bloodshed in Gaza, the last three months witnessed almost no progress on the two key resolutions – 1850 and 1860,” Mr. Ban told today’s Security Council meeting, chaired by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.The Council, in the two resolutions adopted earlier this year, called for a durable and fully respected ceasefire, prevention of the illicit supply of weapons to Gaza; reopening of the crossings in accordance with the Agreement on Movement and Access; and progress on Palestinian reconciliation under the legitimate Palestinian Authority.“The challenge is to begin implementing transformative changes on the ground; and to kick-start a renewed and irreversible drive to achieve an Israeli-Palestinian agreement,” stated Mr. Ban. The Secretary-General cited the need to be “determined as we are patient, as insistent as we are supportive, as principled as we are empathetic to the very real concerns of both parties,” adding that the parties need confidence that the process will address their vital interests. They also need confidence that commitments made will be commitments monitored and commitments kept, he added, noting a “deep crisis of confidence” among ordinary people on the ground.Mr. Ban noted that in the period ahead, United States President Barack Obama will host the Israeli and Palestinian leaders and key regional parties in Washington. He also expected that the Middle East Quartet – comprising the UN, European Union, Russia and US – will meet soon. “Like a bicycle that falls over when left at a standstill, the situation on the ground could easily deteriorate unless proper direction is given and real momentum is quickly generated,” he stated.“Violence and terror will not bring the Palestinians statehood and dignity, and settlement expansion and closure will not bring Israel security or peace. And no two-State solution can be reached if the situation between Gaza and southern Israel continues on its present destructive course, or if Palestinians remain permanently divided,” said the Secretary-General.Mr. Ban called on the parties to honour all existing agreements and previous commitments and pursue an irreversible effort towards the two-State solution, including by fully implementing commitments on the ground. “I also believe the international community’s credibility is at stake,” he added. “We are a long way from where we hoped to be when we embarked on a fresh push for peace less than two years ago. However, I take heart that there is a deep consensus about the scale of the challenge and the importance of meeting it.” Mr. Ban added he remains “extremely worried” about the situation in and around Gaza, with internal Palestinian divisions and Israeli-Hamas tensions trapping the civilian population in a “vortex of hopelessness.”He noted that nearly four months after the conflict in Gaza – in which 3,800 houses and 2 health care centres were destroyed, and 34,000 homes, 15 hospitals, 41 health care centres and 282 schools sustained varying degrees of damage – it is difficult to get anything beyond food and medicine into the area. “This is completely unacceptable,” he stressed.In a presidential statement read out by Mr. Lavrov at the end of today’s meeting, the Council stressed the urgency of reaching comprehensive peace in the Middle East. “Vigorous diplomatic action is needed to attain the goal set by the international community – lasting peace in the region, based on an enduring commitment to mutual recognition, freedom from violence, incitement and terror, and the two-State solution, building upon previous agreements and obligations,” it stated.The Council also voiced support for Russia’s proposal to convene, in consultation with the Quartet and the parties, an international conference on the Middle East peace process in Moscow in 2009. read more

Lankan judge in UN tribunal resigns

“The resignation of Judge Pinto will not affect the procedure of the arbitral proceedings,” Hernandez said. Manila insisted that arbitration is “a peaceful and durable form of dispute settlement pursuant to international law.”China, which frowns upon efforts to involve a third party in the disputes, prefers to negotiate one on one with other claimants which would give it advantage because of its sheer size compared to rival claimants which are smaller and have less military force. (GMA News) He said the Philippines is prepared to present its case once the fifth judge to replace Pinto is appointed by International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea or Itlos President Shunji Yanai and soon as the panel advises Manila to meet on the case. China has resisted the Philippines’ move to let a U.N. body intervene in the disputes, saying the Philippines’ case was legally infirm and carried unacceptable allegations.UNCLOS is a 1982 accord by 163 countries that aims to govern the use of offshore areas and sets territorial limits of coastal states. The Philippines and China are both signatories to the treaty.It also allows member-states to seek legal remedy on territorial disputes through mediation. “The Solicitor General acknowledged the disclosure statement and requested the President thru a letter dated May 27, 2013 to name another judge to ensure the impartiality of the arbitral proceedings,” Hernandez said.Jardeleza also asked Yanai to “assure that any Award that might be rendered in these proceedings is accorded the full degree of respect to which it is entitled, and is as safe as possible from attack by anyone who might be motivated to undermine it.” Manila took a bold step when it initiated an arbitration process under the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea or UNCLOS on January 21 to try to declare as “illegal” China’s nine-dash claim, which covers nearly the entire resource-rich waters, where some parts are called by the Philippines as West Philippine Sea. The Itlos President has 30 days to make the appointment of his replacement.“We expect the replacement judge within June,” Hernandez said.The Philippines is locked in a long-running dispute with China over the South China Sea or West Philippine Sea, where Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan also have overlapping claims over the waters where undersea gas deposist have been discovered in several areas. A Sri Lankan member of a United Nations five-man tribunal that will hear the Philippines’ complaint over what it call’s China’s “excessive” claim to the resource-rich South China Sea has resigned, disclosing that his wife is a Filipino, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) in the Philippines said on Friday.In a letter addressed to Solicitor General Francis Jardeleza dated May 6, 2013, Judge Chris Pinto of Sri Lanka stepped down as judge of the Arbitral Tribunal, citing his wife is a Filipino national, Foreign Affairs spokesman Raul Hernandez told a press briefing. read more

India sends water rice as Sri Lanka faces severe drought

Water shortage has also compounded problems for the energy sector of the country that depends on hydro-power. (Colombo Gazette) “In response to a request from the Government of Sri Lanka for drought relief assistance, Government of India has announced the decision to provide 8 water bowsers and 100 metric tonnes of rice to Sri Lanka. The supply of these items is in the nature of emergency assistance to augment relief measures undertaken in the wake of severe drought faced by Sri Lanka,” External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj told Parliament in a written reply. The lorry-mounted water bowsers were given to the Government of Sri Lanka on March 21. “India has always been among the first to respond to requests from the neighbouring countries in times of crisis. The current gifting of the water bowsers and rice is part of that policy,” Swaraj added. With Sri Lanka staring at one of the worst droughts in the last four decades, India has provided an emergency assistance of water and rice to the Island country, The New Indian Express reported.The Government has already handed over eight water bowsers to the Sri Lankan authorities and the consignment of rice would be delivered soon. Sri Lanka is suffering from the worst drought in 40 years with over a million people facing acute water shortages. The Island country has experienced prolonged dry season with some districts having 60-70 percent less rainfall. The local wells and reservoirs are running dry.The harvest of rice is going to be hit due to water shortage and the prospect of rice shortage later this year is looming large. The Sri Lankan Government has also taken slew of measures to contain the fallout of the rice shortage. It has already waived off taxes on rice imports and is expected to increase rice imports to meet the demand at home. read more

Investigator says fake IRS agents demand money from more than 366000 in

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Investigator says fake IRS agents demand money from more than 366,000 in nationwide tax scam FILE – This March 22, 2013, file photo, shows exterior of the Internal Revenue Service building in Washington. Fake IRS agents have targeted more than 366,000 people with harassing phone calls demanding payments and threatening jail as part of a huge nationwide tax scam that has cost taxpayers $15.5 million. More than 3,000 people have fallen for the ruse since 2013, Timothy Camus, a Treasury deputy inspector general for tax administration, said Thursday, March 12, 2015. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh, File) by Stephen OhlemacHer, The Associated Press Posted Mar 12, 2015 9:06 am MDT WASHINGTON – Fake IRS agents have targeted more than 366,000 people with harassing phone calls demanding payments and threatening jail as part of a huge nationwide tax scam that has cost taxpayers $15.5 million.More than 3,000 people have fallen for the ruse since 2013, Timothy Camus, a Treasury deputy inspector general for tax administration, said Thursday.The scam has claimed victims in almost every state, Camus said. One unidentified victim lost more than $500,000.“The criminals do not discriminate. They are calling people everywhere, of all income levels and backgrounds,” Camus told the Senate Finance Committee at a hearing. “The number of complaints we have received about this scam make it the largest, most pervasive impersonation scam in the history of our agency.”The scam is so widespread that investigators believe there is more than one group of perpetrators, including some overseas.Camus said even he received a call from one of the scammers at his home on a Saturday. He said he had a stern message for the caller: “Your day will come.”So far, Camus said, two people in Florida have been arrested. They were accused of being part of a scam that involved people in call centres in India contacting U.S. taxpayers and pretending to be IRS agents.“These criminal acts are perpetrated by thieves hiding behind telephone lines and computers, preying on honest taxpayers and robbing the Treasury of tens of billions of dollars every year,” said Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee. “Taxpayers must be more aware of the risks and better protected from attack and these criminals must be found and brought to justice.”The inspector general’s office started warning taxpayers about the scam a year ago, but it has since ballooned. Tax scams often increase during filing season.As part of the scam, fake IRS agents call taxpayers, claim they owe taxes, and demand payment using a prepaid debit card or a wire transfer. Those who refuse are threatened with arrest, deportation or loss of a business or driver’s license, Camus said.The callers might even know the last four digits of the taxpayer’s Social Security number, Camus said.They request prepaid debit cards because they are harder to trace than bank cards. Prepaid debit cards are different from bank cards because they are not connected to a bank account. Instead, consumers buy the cards at stores, and use them just like a bank card, until the money runs out or they add more.Real IRS agents usually contact people first by mail, Camus said. And they never demand payment by debit card, credit card or wire transfer.“Our message is simple,” Camus said. “If someone calls unexpectedly claiming to be from the IRS with aggressive threats if you do not pay immediately, it is a scam artist calling. The IRS does not initiate contact with taxpayers by telephone. If you do owe money to the IRS, chances are you have already received some form of a notice or correspondence from the IRS in your mailbox.”The inspector general’s office started receiving complaints about the scam in 2013. Immigrants were the primary target early on, the IG’s office said. But the scam has since become more widespread.___Follow Stephen Ohlemacher on Twitter: http://twitter.com/stephenatap read more

Nintendo warns young kids off 3DS 3D games

first_imgDepending on how you look at it, Nintendo is taking a pretty big risk with the introduction of the 3DS. Even though there is a slider to turn down the 3D effects, this is a handheld meant for games to be played in 3D. Not everyone can view 3D, and not everyone likes viewing it, so there’s already a segment of the market Nintendo cannot cater to.Now some new guidance (Japanese) has been put out by Nintendo for young kids using the 3DS, and for the regularity of breaks when using the device. In both cases, play seems more limited if you want to stop your eyes getting too tired or your vision to be impacted.In the case of young children (under 6), Nintendo suggests they don’t use the 3DS at all to play 3D games. 2D viewing is fine, but 3D is a big no-no. This is because such young eyes are still developing so viewing 3D may be detrimental to that continued development. Parents will find controls to stop 3D being displayed if they do intend on buying a 3DS for a child in that age group.As for everyone else, Nintendo used to state that a break every hour was recommended on previous 2D devices, but with the 3DS that has been cut in half to 30 minutes. This is due to viewing 3D content making your eyes tired more quickly. Even 30 minutes may be too long, with a break suggested at the first signs of you not feeling great.While the 3DS is sure to be a hit when it launches in March, the decision to go 3D does bring with it a few extra limits. Will those same people who got sick watching Avatar in 3D be unable to stand more than a few minutes of 3DS play? Or will it be a completely different type of person who suffers the ill effects?One thing’s clear, this is the first Nintendo hardware that may not be universally playable.Read more at KotakuMatthew’s OpinionI don’t think anyone takes any notice of the guidance given for any piece of electronic entertainment. When was the last time you played a DS game and kept an eye on the clock for a break every hour?If anyone is going to get sick playing on a 3DS it will be after a purchase has been made. Hopefully Nintendo’s 3D slider will allow for such sickness to be controlled or removed completely. If it can’t then we’ll hear a few complaints, but Nintendo must know the majority of players will be happy and sickness-free.The issue of tired eyes occurring quickly isn’t going to have an impact on sales, but it could make playing for long periods of time pretty tough. Once you have really tired eyes it’s difficult to carry on looking at the screen. That may not be a bad thing, forcing kids to go and do something else for a while.last_img read more

Theres more to life than being happy Why the key to a

first_img By Aoife Barry Short URL Saturday 28 Jan 2017, 9:00 PM http://jrnl.ie/3202193 Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article 54 Comments Image: Shutterstock/KieferPix Share Tweet Email6 LIFE HAS ITS ups and downs, and yet what many of us strive for is a feeling of happiness.But what if striving for ‘happiness’ was the wrong way of going about it? What if, instead, we should be searching for meaning in our lives?That’s the premise of a new book by journalist Emily Esfahani Smith, whose studies in the area of psychology and philosophy – as well as her Sufi upbringing – have led her to examine what really makes life worth living.In The Power of Meaning, Esfahani Smith takes examples from published works, positive psychology and the real-life experiences of people she meets to put together a guide on living a life with meaning.“When I started writing this book I wanted to understand how you could lead a meaningful life,” said Esfahani Smith.For her, there are four pillars – created through data gathered from interviewees – on which meaning rests:BelongingPurposeStorytellingTranscendenceEach of these pillars is dedicated a chapter, with Esfahani Smith using real-life examples to show how each pillar contributes to meaning.The lightbulb momentThe author told TheJournal.ie that the search for meaning in life has been a constant preoccupation for her. She wanted to think more about the fundamental questions about life – why are we here? How do we live good lives?“That led me to study philosophy in college, but I realised philosophy isn’t so much focused on these questions anymore,” said Esfahani Smith. “It’s more technical. I felt a little bit unsatisfied in what I was learning in philosophy and I decided to be a journalist because I loved writing.”A few years later she came across the positive psychology movement, which became particularly popular in the past decade, and which emphasises examining positive aspects of life in a scientific way.It was somewhat of a light-bulb moment for Esfahani Smith. “Here is this field answering these questions that I have always been interested in,” she realised – which led her on to start “googling everything I could about positive psychology”. But googling wasn’t enough. Soon she had enrolled herself in a graduate programme taught by one of the best professors in the field, social psychologist Jonathan Haidt.Being a student in the programme influenced Esfahani Smith’s work, and she started writing about the studies and concepts she was learning about. “Those articles ended up resonating with people and doing well, and one of them did particularly well, called ‘there’s more to life than being happy’.”That led on to Esfahani Smith’s new book, which gave her more of a chance to delve into the area of meaning and happiness.But what’s so wrong about seeking happiness?“It seems like such a positive thing for people to aspire to,” agreed Esfahani Smith. “But in Ancient Greece, happiness was understood to be much different to what we understand it to be now. The understanding of happiness was more what we would understand to be ‘flourishing’.”In modern life, we’ve come to take happiness, and a happy life, as meaning the “absence of negative feelings and negative states”, explained Esfahani Smith.But pursuing happiness might not lead us to feel happier. “I do think that the pursuit of happiness has been a little bit of a distraction,” said Esfahani Smith. “I think that ultimately what people want is to lead a meaningful life, and that happiness is wonderful. But that any life that’s being fully lived will have difficult emotions – you’ll experience sadness, and grief, and stress, and effort.And so many things we devote ourselves to, whether it’s learning a musical instrument or pursuing a certain career, or having children, are really difficult endeavours – and we pursue them anyway because they are meaningful to us.The option is always there to give up those projects and pursue happiness without ups and downs. “But we don’t do that because these are meaningful things,” argued Esfahani Smith.For her, this shows that “there is more to life than feeling happy”, and that if we pursue things that give our lives meaning, we will experience happiness – alongside a range of other emotions that will help us grow.Real-life meaning Source: Shutterstock/pp1In the book, Esfahani Smith journeys to a number of locations around the United States to meet people who show her how important the aforementioned four pillars are.One of those is a zookeeper called Ashley Richmond, whose days surrounded by animal waste were still ones that gave her meaning.“[The zookeepers] spend the majority of their time cleaning up animal poop – Ashley told me 80% of her time was spent dealing with animal waste, and yet she also told me that this was her dream job. She couldn’t imagine doing anything else with her time. She considered the job as her calling. I spoke to her about why, and she said she doesn’t consider her purpose cleaning up animal waste – but her purpose is caring for the animals,” said Esfahani Smith.I really like that example because it shows we find meaning and purpose by attaching the things we are doing to something bigger than ourselves, and sometimes we have to do things that are unpleasant to lead a meaningful life.Edward Pruitt, meanwhile, showed her the meaning of community. He is from the small island of Tangier (it’s so small people use golf carts rather than cars to get around).“It’s a tiny island in the middle of a bay in the US, and it’s an unusual place with a very strong sense of community,” explained Esfahani Smith, who explores in the book how difficult it can be for locals to deal with their island background when they move to the mainland.“Edward derives a lot of meaning from the community that he experienced,” said Esfahani, who watched him give a speech on the island. He told those gathered there that when he went to college the teacher said to him “some people might wonder about this island that you’re from. It’s kind of unusual but don’t be ashamed of it. It made you who you are”.This speech helped Pruitt to realise that his difference gave his life meaning.The role of religion Source: Shutterstock/HalfpointOne of the more striking elements of the book is how important religion or spirituality is to people in giving their life meaning. Given that not everyone reading the book will share an interest, or even belief, in religion or living a spiritual life, what can they learn from it?“I think definitely people who are religious, probably it’s obvious to them why life is meaningful and for thousands of years religion has been the default source of meaning in people’s lives,” acknowledged Esfahani Smith. “And I think if you look at why it’s because those [four] pillars are present.”Religion gives a sense of belonging and purpose, enables storytelling – usually storytelling or narrative is a big part of these two other pillars – as well as opportunities for transcendence through ritual and music.“So I think that religion and meaning definitely go hand in hand, and I would add to that I think the question of meaning is ultimately a spiritual question if you are defining spirituality as the area of life that deals with the ultimate concerns, so the big questions of life.”But Esfahani Smith is keen to point out that though meaning itself is a spiritual question, “I don’t think you have to have faith or be a religious person to lead a meaningful life – you can rely on the four pillars of meaning I write about.”For Esfahani Smith, researching the book has brought her on a journey to discover just what meaning is – and she learned it’s not just in the big moments.“I had this idea when I was younger that the search for meaning is this grand and esoteric pursuit: that you have to travel to a monastery or read lots of philosophy on how to lead a meaningful life.What I realised is actually there are small sources of meaning all around us every day that we can tap into to lead meaningful lives and there are all sorts of small ways we can build up the pillars in our lives.As Esfahani Smith sees it, if we familiarise ourselves with the four pillars, we can see how they fit into our lives, and which ones resonate most with us (she has a quiz on her website that she says will help with this too).The Power of Meaning doesn’t give you a long list of ways to add more meaning to your life – so it’s less of a self-help book than one which encourages you to gently examine how you live. In a world where constant happiness is far from possible, it’s refreshing to realise that meaning can be found even in the tougher moments.“It definitely helped me find those small sources of meaning in everyday,” said Esfahni Smith of her discoveries.The Power of Meaning is out now, published by Penguin Random House.Read: Anxious and full of self-doubt?

GOCMV AGM results indecisive

first_imgA climate of chaos and heated discussion and disagreement were evident at the annual general meeting of the Greek Orthodox Community of Melbourne and Victoria held yesterday at the church hall at St Dimitrios in Prahran.The proposal by GOCMV President Bill Papastergiadis for the GOCMV President to only be able to serve two terms failed to get 75 percent required to pass and the defeat of the proposals to overturn the expulsion of Mr Paikopoulos, Mr Mourikis and Mr Avgoustakis and the Tsitas proposal to establish a committee to oversee the development of Alphington Grammar and Bulleen.The counting of the votes for the election of the electoral committee had not been completed at the time Neos Kosmos went to print.The GOCMV President Bill Papastergiadis was positive in outlining the achievements of the committee during his term as President. He claimed securing $2 million from the State Government for the cultural centre at the GOCMV Building in Lonsdale Street, $2 million funding from the State Government for the construction of six classrooms at Alphington Grammar. $300 000 from the Andrianakos family for the construction of the multipurpose hall and $50 000 from the Argyropoulos family to fund scholarships at Alphington Grammar as major achievements. He also assured members that planning permission had been gained for the construction of the multipurpose hall and for the classrooms and that the construction of these facilities will commence in 2010. Former GOCMV President George Foundas took the floor and said that the $2 million for the cultural centre had been allocated by the Bracks Government and that the construction of the multipurpose would be detrimental to the school because it would be built on the site of a number of houses adjoining the school which had recently been purchased by the GOCMV.It was striking that there was not a Treasurers report at the meeting. The explanation for a Treasurers report was not required because the audited financial reports had been circulated to members.The audited financial statement reveal a loss of $50 000 for the financial year 2008 – 2009. However the loss is closer to $120 000, according to a number of current Board members.In other news, 49 people have nominated to stand for election to the GOCMV board in December.Bill Papastergiadis has announced the 18 people who will be standing with him as part of his ticket.The Papastergiadis team includes Bill Anevlavis, Nick Koukouvitakis, Tammy Iliou, John Mitsakos, Costa Markos, Leo Vlahakis, Kostas Tsoumbakos, Jorge Menidis, Theo Markos, George Kallianis, Dimitri Iakovakis, Paul Kounnas, Nick Parthimos, Vasso Zangalis, Theo Andrianakos, Nicole Iliopoulos, George Koletsis and Jim Bosinakis.While Con Dikeos has not yet announced his team sources close to Dikeos have indicated that one can expect to see George Foundas, Eugenia Grammatikakis and Jenny Krasopoulakis as part of his team. The Dikeos ticket should be announced later this week.There is also speculation that the large number of nominees will see the formation of a third ticket.Additional reporting by Ross Karavis.

Is there any steam left in IndiGo owner shares after a strong

first_imgAfter a strong debut on the bourses last month, the share price of InterGlobe Aviation, the owner of India’s biggest airline by market share, IndiGo, has lost some steam in December, giving rise to questions about its rally in the coming days.Shares of InterGlobe listed at Rs 856 on the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) on 10 November, while the issue price was fixed at Rs 765. In the past month, the scrip touched a high of Rs 1,145.75 and a low of Rs 878.45.Overall, the share price of InterGlobe Aviation has soared 15% since being listed on the exchanges last month. But it corrected by over 9% so far this month, declining from Rs 1,110.15 on 30 November to Rs 998 on 10 December.The recent decline has raised doubts over the share’s performance in the coming weeks, and analysts are not so optimistic over the outlook of the stock even as the carrier shows consistency in earning profits.InterGlobe Aviation posted a net profit of Rs 1,295.58 crore for the financial year ending March 2015, up 173% compared to Rs 474.44 crore in the previous year. In 2012-13, it registered a profit of Rs 987.3 crore.”I am not bullish on Interglobe Aviation shares. The aviation sector depends heavily on government policies, and international competition may squeeze margins going forward,” said Kishor P Ostwal, chairman and managing director, CNI Research.”Shares of Interglobe Aviation are fairly valued right now,” The Financial Express quoted G Chokkalingam, founder of Equinomics Research, as saying.On the other hand, share prices of SpiceJet, India’s second-biggest budget airline by market share, have gone up by a whopping 260% so far this year. The rally was led by the company’s turnaround to profit from a near-collapse late last year.”Shares of InterGlobe Aviation have recently broken its immediate support levels of Rs 1,030 due to some market pressure. If it will touch Rs 1,035 in coming days then it move towards Rs 1,100,” said Chandan Taparia, derivative and technical analyst, Anand Rathi Securities.Before issuing an initial public offer (IPO), the promoters of IndiGo altered the company’s shareholding structure to provide more scope for overseas capital in the company’s IPO.Under the new capital structure, the stake held by one of its promoters, Rakesh Gangwal, has become his personal holding. Gangwal holds 47.88% in IndiGo’s parent company, InterGlobe Enterprises, through US-based Caelum Investment.last_img read more

Chief selector breaks silence on MS Dhonis possible retirement speaks about future

first_imgThe Indian squad for the West Indies tour was announced and as expected, there was no MS Dhoni in the limited-overs leg. It was reported earlier that the former Indian captain had ruled himself out of selection as he wanted to take two months off the game. This was reiterated by chief selector MSK Prasad who said that the wicket-keeper batsman was not available for selection.He also said that they have a roadmap in place and there will be more opportunities given to Rishabh Pant in order to groom him for the future.”He’s (Dhoni) unavailable for this series but we had certain roadmaps and plans till the World Cup. Subsequently, we’ve laid down few more plans and thought of giving as many opportunities to Rishabh Pant and to groom him. This is our plan right now,” Prasad told reporters after announcing the squads.Responding to queries about his retirement, Prasad said that calling it quits from the game was always a personal choice and for a legend like Dhoni, it should be left to him to take a call.Transitioning from Dhoni to Pant MS DhoniTwitter/Cricket World Cup”Retirement is purely individual. A legendary cricketer like MS Dhoni, he knows when to retire,” he said. “I don’t think we need to discuss anything on it, because first of all he’s not available. Second, we have already started grooming some youngsters.”Speaking about Pant, the chief selector categorically mentioned that the young man had done nothing wrong to not be selected and that he remains the primary wicket-keeper in all the three formats.”Rishabh Pant has not done anything wrong for his non-inclusion. We know he’s the only wicketkeeper to get a 100 in England and then in Australia. Pant will play in all formats, we have to manage his workload,” Prasad said. Rishabh PantTony Marshall/Getty ImagesPrasad also said that they had discussed young Andhra keeper KS Bharat and that he was very close to getting selected, but then had to go as per the unwritten rule which favours the inclusion of a senior cricketer when he gets a comeback opportunity after being injured.”We have taken India A performances into consideration. In the longer format, KS Bharat was very, very close to get selected. We have an unwritten norm when a senior cricketer is injured, he should get a comeback opportunity. That’s what we have given to Saha,” the chief selector informed.Test squad: Mayank Agarwal, KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (capt), Ajinkya Rahane, Hanuma Vihari, Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant (wk), Wriddhiman Saha (wk), R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh YadavODI squad: Virat Kohli (capt), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kedar Jadhav, Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Navdeep SainiT20I squad Virat Kohli (capt), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant (wk), Krunal Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Washington Sundar, Rahul Chahar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Deepak Chahar, Navdeep Sainilast_img read more

Power Player Stokes Puts Best Spin on Baltimore

first_imgThe 5th annual Baltimore Reunion Expo will take place Sept. 9, at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History & Culture. One of the key players behind the success of the Expo and other Baltimore events is Shelonda Stokes, a Baltimore native who has used the grit she learned growing up to find success.This year’s Expo features performances by neo-soul diva Angie Stone, and Baltimore (specifically Park Heights) native Meshelle, “The Indie Mom of Comedy.” Also part of the line-up is fitness guru Charles “Chizel It” Harris and Marsha Jews, host of WEAA’s, “Keep It Moving,” is the Expo’s host.Sean Yoes (Courtesy Photo)The Expo is being presented by Visit Baltimore and Greibo Media. Stokes is the owner of Greibo and she recently spoke exuberantly about her hometown on a breezy Sunday afternoon at the Mt. Vernon Marketplace.“Once people come to Baltimore, what we know is that they love it…it’s just getting them here, with the negative media stories and all of that, people fear it,” Stokes said. “So, what the festival (African American Festival or AFRAM) did and what the Expo does…it gives people a reason to come and taste it and enjoy it and experience it…and their like, `Oh my God, it’s not what I thought, it’s even better.’”Stokes and her company Greibo, which she founded in 2001, have been the force behind the Baltimore Reunion Expo for the last five years and AFRAM from 2010 to 2016. Yet, they are just two impressive clients among a sparkling phalanx of companies that have utilized Stokes’ media acumen that include: Under Armour, Columbia Pictures, Walt Disney Pictures, Discovery Channel, BWI Airport, the Smithsonian Institution, Morgan State University, Royal Caribbean International and the USDA, among others.Her ever burgeoning list of successes over the last several years has placed the charismatic Stokes in the rarified air of some of Baltimore’s very exclusive rooms. She sits on the boards of some of the city’s most prestigious and powerful organizations including the Downtown Partnership and Morgan State University’s Board of Regents.“Being on some of these boards has opened up doors…but how do we expand it?”  asked Stokes who graduated from Polytechnic High School in 1990 and Morgan State University in 1995. The former electrical engineer worked for major companies like Hewlett Packard and General Electric, before she started Greibo and experienced what she described as “exponential growth” of her company.However, there seems to be an untraversable gulf between her current reality and Stokes’ hardscrabble, transient East Baltimore childhood.“So, for me I grew up… I was that poor but fun (kid)…and you didn’t really realize that you were that poor. But, it was at times…my brother and I  would watch, and we’re sitting at the table and my mom is not eating and I’m trying to figure out why she’s not eating and she’s like, `Oh no, I’m not hungry.’ But, you know that she has to be, because we’ve been together that whole day. And it’s not until you get older that you realize that you didn’t have enough, so she was making sure her kids were good,” Stokes added before talking about the demise of her father.“My father and four of his brothers have died from a heroin overdose. So, when you talk about that kind of background…when I talk about that grit and that resilience it’s also one of those things that I believe, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” Stokes said.One harrowing night in 1991, during her freshman year at Morgan State University, truly put that philosophy to the test. After a dispute with a male classmate in her dorm room, a physical altercation between the two led to Stokes being dangled from a balcony by her ankles, until several classmates from her all female honors dorm rescued her.However, it was men from Stokes’ old neighborhood who later came to Morgan’s campus determined to make sure the young man that attacked her would never attack anyone else. Ultimately, because of intervention by Morgan’s administration the young man who attacked Stokes was not harmed.  “To my community, I was that chick,” Stokes said. “And my community rallied around me.”More than twenty-five years later, that seemingly outsized display of community continues to connect Stokes to the disenfranchised community she emerged from and never forgot.“What I love about Baltimore and our people…is we have like this fighting grit and resilience. We’re going to make it happen and what it is, is relative…to who your are.”Sean Yoes is the AFRO’s Baltimore editor and host and executive producer of AFRO First Edition, which airs Monday through Friday 5 p.m.-7 p.m. on WEAA, 88.9.last_img

Researchers conduct chemical study of an old metalrich globular cluster

first_img More information: Chemical Study of the Metal-rich Globular Cluster NGC 5927, arXiv:1711.03176 [astro-ph.SR] arxiv.org/abs/1711.03176AbstractGlobular Clusters (GCs) are natural laboratories where stellar and chemical evolution can be studied in detail. In addition, their chemical patterns and kinematics can tell us wich Galactic structure (Disk, Bulge, Halo or extragalactic) the cluster belongs to. NGC 5927 is one of most metal-rich GCs in the Galaxy and its kinematics links it to the Thick Disk. We present abundance analysis based on high resolution spectra of 7 giant stars. The data were obtained using FLAMES/UVES spectrograph mounted on UT2 telescope of the European Southern Observatory. The principal motivation of this work is to perform a wide and detailed chemical abundance analysis of the cluster and look for possible Multiple Populations (MPs). We determined stellar parameters and measured 22 elements corresponding to light (Na, Al), alpha (O, Mg, Si, Ca, Ti), iron-peak (Sc, V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn) and heavy elements (Y, Zr, Ba, Ce, Nd, Eu). We found a mean iron content of [Fe/H]=-0.47 ±0.02 (error on the mean). We confirm the existence of MPs in this GC with an O-Na anti-correlation, and moderate spread in Al abundances. We estimate a mean [α/Fe]=0.25 ±0.08. Iron-peak elements shows no significant spread. The [Ba/Eu] ratios indicate a predominant contribution from SNeII for the formation of the cluster. Researchers investigate chemical composition of globular cluster NGC 6362 © 2017 Phys.org (Phys.org)—Chilean researchers have presented a chemical study of the old, metal-rich globular cluster NGC 5927. The new research determines abundances of 22 elements in seven giant stars of the cluster. The findings are available in a paper published November 8 on the arXiv pre-print repository. Discovered in 1826, NGC 5927 is a globular cluster near the Galactic plane, located about 7,700 light years from the Earth. It is one of most metal-rich globular clusters in the Milky Way and has an estimated age of approximately 12.25 billion years.Galactic globular clusters, especially such old as NGC 5927, are important for astronomers since they are among the oldest objects in the universe. Therefore, they could serve as natural laboratories for the study of stellar evolution processes.In the case of NGC 5927, it is believed that it was formed during the earliest stages of the formation of the Milky Way. Hence, researchers hope that this cluster could provide essential information about how the initial material got processed chemically.A team of astronomers led by Aldo Mura-Guzman of the University of Concepción in Chile, has lately performed a chemical study of NGC 5927. They obtained high-resolution spectra using the FLAMES/UVES spectrograph at the UT2 telescope of the European Southern Observatory (ESO) in Chile, which allowed them to conduct a detailed chemical abundances analysis of this cluster.”In this paper we present a chemical study of the GC NGC 5927 based on high-resolution spectra taken from UVES,” the authors wrote in the paper.The researchers determined chemical abundances 22 such as sodium, aluminum, iron, oxygen and heavy elements like yttrium and zirconium. They found that NGC 5927 hosts multiple stellar populations with oxygen-sodium anti-correlation, and moderate spread in aluminum abundances.According to the paper, NGC 5927 has a mean metallicity of –0.47 dex, what is consistent with previous studies. This value is comparable with field stars and globular clusters in the Milky Way’s bulge. Moreover, the scientists noted that no significant spread in other iron-peak elements is visible in the studied cluster.Furthermore, the researchers confirmed a sodium-aluminum correlation but found no clear evidence for magnesium-aluminum anti-correlation in NGC 5927. The study also revealed that heavy s-process elements show no significant spread in this cluster. According to the authors of the paper, this seems to contradict the theory that asymptotic giant branch stars are polluters for the second generation stars.In concluding remarks, the researchers noted that NGC 5927 is similar the globular cluster NGC 6440 in the Milky Way’s bulge when it comes to chemical composition. This suggests similar origins between these two clusters.”The chemical similarities of NGC 5927 with Bulge GCs and especially with NGC 6440, lead us to consider a formation scenario where NGC 5927 was formed from material in-between the Bulge and Disk, when both structures were still in formation,” the scientists concluded.
