It’s going to be tough to top, too.Martell, the former top quarterback recruit, transferred into Miami’s football program after spending two seasons at Ohio State. The Las Vegas, Nevada native considered a couple of major programs before deciding on The U.It’s unclear if Martell will be made eligible for the 2019 season, but the quarterback is putting in some serious work regardless.Martell was trying to work on some routes inside the facility earlier this week, but something got in the way.

Fields transferred out of the Bulldogs’ program and into Ohio State. While the circumstances surrounding their transfers weren’t exactly the same, Martell could look to Fields’ case to help his own.last_img read more

Students Are Newest Canvas for Artists

first_imgPerformers, painters, and writers will soon be using their unique talents to inspire the minds of Nova Scotia students. The Artists-in-Schools program, announced today, Aug. 31, will make it possible for schools to invite many more artists into the classroom to enhance student learning and encourage students to explore creatively. “This program will not only enrich arts education in our schools, it will also help students discover new ways to understand and express themselves in other areas of the curriculum,” said Minister of Education Karen Casey. “We want our students to be able to learn in the arts, through the arts and about the arts,” she said. Four arts agencies will share a $100,000 investment from the Department of Education during the 2006-07 academic year. Each will receive $25,000 to invest in innovative and proven programs that directly engage students and teachers with the arts. “This is a highly beneficial program for students, teachers and artists alike,” said Briony Carros, executive director of Visual Arts Nova Scotia. “Students will develop an awareness and first-hand appreciation of art, which will provide them with a unique educational experience.” The four organizations receiving funding are: — ArtsSmarts Nova Scotia, part of the ArtsSmarts national education initiative. ArtsSmarts is dedicated to improving student learning by melding the arts with academic programs. It links students to musicians, dancers, painters, writers, actors, and filmmakers, and offers professional development for teachers — Perform! Sponsored by Dance Nova Scotia, the Nova Scotia Choral Federation, and Theatre Nova Scotia, Perform! helps bring professional dance, drama, and music artists into students’ lives — Writers in the Schools. Offered by the Writers’ Federation of Nova Scotia, this program helps young people develop writing and reading skills, an appreciation for writing and writers, and an understanding of what it means to be a writer — Professional Artists in the Schools (PAINTS). PAINTS brings visual artists and traditional crafts people together with teachers and students. “Arts education is a fundamental component of a balanced program of studies,” said Ann Blackwood, director of English program services at the Department of Education. “Infusing the arts throughout the curriculum will help students grow aesthetically, intellectually, and emotionally.” Besides academic, social and personal growth, Artists-in-Schools can also provide students with insights into career options. According to Statistics Canada’s latest numbers, Canadian consumers spent $22.8 billion on cultural goods and services in 2003, a 36 per cent increase since 1997. The program will allow schools to contact one of the arts organizations, which will then ask its members to help the school establish an arts education project. The Artists-in-Schools program and the school would then cost-share the project with the individual arts organization.last_img read more

Cuban prosecutors appeal unanimous acquittal of two BC police officers family

first_imgVANCOUVER — The families of two British Columbia police officers being held in Cuba say the men might have to stay in the country longer because the prosecutor plans to appeal a unanimous verdict that acquitted them of assault charges.A statement issued on behalf of the families of Mark Simms and Jordan Long says the news is a “painful realization that the nightmare is not yet over.”The statement says they have no idea when Simms, 29, a constable with the Vancouver police, and Long, 31, a constable in nearby Port Moody, will be allowed to return to Canada.Rollie Woods, the deputy police complaint commissioner in B.C., said in April that the men were in Varadero when they were arrested in mid-March following allegations that an Ontario teenager was assaulted while vacationing in the same area.Woods said the Vancouver officer was being held for assault, while the Port Moody officer was detained as a witness.A 17-year-old Canadian female alleged to Cuban authorities she was assaulted by Simms, and officials held Long as a material witness in the case, Woods said.The Canadian Press contacted the Directorate of International Relations in Cuba and was asked on Friday to send an email, but a reply has not been received.Global Affairs Canada said consular services are being provided, but because of the Privacy Act no other information can be disclosed.Vancouver police confirmed in an email that Simms is a constable in the department but it had no update on the situation. The Port Moody Police Department did not respond to a request for comment.The statement from the families does not specify what the two officers were originally charged with.“We are so grateful that the Cuban judiciary recognized that the case against Jordan and Mark was based on a lie that had no evidence to support it, but in fact only had evidence to refute it,” the statement says.In Cuba, unlike in Canada, people accused of crimes are considered guilty until proven innocent, it says.The statement says a panel of five judges issued the unanimous acquittal last week and the families expect the very highest levels of the Canadian government to work with Cuban authorities to bring the pair home.“Mark and Jordan and our families and friends have endured tremendous suffering in every area of our lives for the last eight months; emotional, physical, psychological, financial, spiritual and social,” the statement says. “We have been overjoyed at the thought that this ongoing nightmare would soon be over and that the long journey towards healing could finally begin.”The statement says the families look forward to an investigation by the Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner so the truth can be fully revealed.“We are holding on to the hope that they will be home to celebrate Christmas with their loving families and friends,” it concludes.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

UN stepping up aid as new fighting displaces at least 15000 from

Those fleeing the fresh clashes this week between Islamic insurgents and Government forces bring the total number of people uprooted so far this year in Mogadishu to 160,000, according to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).“This week’s fighting in Mogadishu, described by witnesses as the worst since the beginning of the latest insurgency in February 2007, has forced at least 15, 000 people from their homes,” UNHCR spokesperson Ron Redmond told reporters in Geneva. UNHCR, which is working to provide shelter materials for those that have fled, reported that almost half of the newly displaced have moved to safer parts of Mogadishu, while most of the others fled west towards the Somali town of Afgooye, an area already jammed with an estimated 350,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs). Meanwhile, the agency said that about 5,000 Somali refugees have been arriving every month at the Dadaab refugee camp in north-eastern Kenya, some 80 kilometres from the border with Somalia, bringing the population in the camp to over 215,000. Despite the insecurity in the capital of the strife-torn nation, humanitarian agencies are scaling up their response to assist those affected. “We are managing to get aid to those who desperately need it. We have stepped up response for those who have been uprooted by the violence in the past few days and there is no break in ongoing assistance programmes,” said the UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator, Mark Bowden. “The renewed fighting in Mogadishu over the weekend worsens an already desperate and deteriorating humanitarian situation in Somalia. A huge proportion of the population is in dire need of assistance.”Those displaced since the weekend are receiving food aid along the Afgooye corridor and the UN World Food Programme (WFP) is currently transporting more food to the outskirts of Mogadishu. Health facilities in the capital have also been supplied with drugs and supplies. In addition, the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and its partners will distribute non-food items to 8,000 families in need. The agency also plans to continue to the ongoing blanket supplementary feeding programme for 10,000 children under five in and around Mogadishu and the surrounding IDP camps.The latest crisis comes as the Horn of Africa nation, which has not had a functioning government since 1991, is grappling with an already dire humanitarian situation owing to a combination of conflict and drought.Some 3.2 million people in Somalia, or around 43 per cent of the population, are in urgent need of food and other humanitarian assistance. The latest violence comes just weeks after the signing of a UN-brokered peace deal between the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) and the rebel Alliance for the Re-liberation of Somalia (ARS) aimed at ending the fighting. 26 September 2008Aid agencies in Somalia are scaling up their efforts to assist some 15,000 people uprooted by the recent fighting in Mogadishu, which has reportedly killed 80 civilians and wounded hundreds more and is some of the worst violence to hit the Somali capital in over a year and a half, the United Nations said today. read more

Use of modern technology for disaster management in AsiaPacific focus of UN

“Many lives could be saved and tragedy mitigated, if effective disaster management measures are undertaken,” Kim Hak-Su, Executive Secretary of the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), said in an opening address to the UN Regional Workshop on the Use of Space Technology for Disaster Management.The five-day Workshop, co-organized by ESCAP and the Vienna-based UN Office for Outer Space Affairs (OOSA), has attracted 130 participants from 32 countries. A number of representatives from other UN agencies, intergovernmental organizations and various national and regional institutions are also attending.These experts are sharing their knowledge and experience in using space and satellite technology to prepare for and respond to natural and man made disasters.According to UN officials, from January to September, natural catastrophes in the world have cost countries and communities an estimated $56 billion. The Asia-Pacific region has been one of the worst hit, accounting for half of the world’s major emergencies.During the last five months, more than 20 countries have endured serious flooding, resulting in the deaths of 2,300 people, and forcing 16 million people from their homes. In Thailand alone, the floods affected 7 million acres of farmland and 80,000 people needed treatment for water-borne, flood related, illnesses, according to Pinij Jarusombat, Minister of Science and Technology of the Royal Thai Government.ESCAP recently established a new Information, Communication and Space Technology Division, and the secretariat has also been active, in cooperation with the World Meteorology Organization (WMO), in successfully promoting the establishment of the Typhoon Committee and the ESCAP/WMO Panel on Tropical Cyclones. read more

Canada in the 1960s focus of upcoming conference

Nick Baxter-Moore and Marian BredinThe Beatles came to America. John F. Kennedy was assassinated. Woman began their own social movement, and in Canada, we adopted a new flag with a red maple leaf on it.The 1960s changed modern life as we know it, and next week, the decade will be the subject of the 24th annual Two Days of Canada conference at Brock.“The Sixties, Canadian-Style” will bring together Canadian and international scholars to discuss Canada’s role in the ferment and conflict of the 1960s, and the cultural and historical changes that followed in its wake.There’s much to discuss about the 60s, including when the era started and ended, said Nick Baxter-Moore, professor of Communication, Popular Culture and Film and one of the conference organizers.While every decade makes its mark, the 60s saw an unusual amount of change taking shape, Baxter-Moore said. In Canada, that includes Trudeaumania and public health insurance. Modern feminism and environmentalism also have their roots in the 1960s, he said.Even music saw a drastic change.“The Beatles and Bob Dylan changed the way we think about music,” he said. “Before that, you’d get a professional songwriter to write a song, then find a pretty face to sing it. The 60s saw the birth of the modern singer/songwriter.”The 60s are often romanticized, said Marian Bredin, conference co-organizer and director of the Centre for Canadian Studies. Some say it was not as open and free as it is portrayed in its common mythology. Others believe it was even more so.“It’s due for critical re-examination,” she said.The conference will feature two plenary sessions:• “Power to the People!”, Thursday, Nov. 4, 9:30 to 11 a.m., Pond Inlet Featuring: Burnley “Rocky” Jones, an attorney and leading figure in the Canadian civil and human rights movements; Meg Luxton, an activist and professor in the School of Women’s Studies, York University; Dimitri Roussopoulos, founder of the Combined Universities Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament in 1959 and organizer of the first student demonstrations against nuclear weapons in Canada.• “The Cultural is Political”, Friday, Nov. 5, 3:30 to 5 p.m., Pond InletFeaturing: Jim Garrard, actor, playwright, director and cultural activist; Dorothy Todd Hénaut, documentary filmmaker, director and producer; Marion (Marien) Lewis, conceptual and performance artist, who created Canada’s first artist-run centre, A Space, in Toronto in the 60s.Conference presentations examine a wide range of topics, including nation-building and national identity, grassroots and protest movements, the counterculture and cultural politics, the Vietnam war, and art and music.The symposium will also feature a “60s Coffee House Revisited” on Thursday, Nov. 4 from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. in Pond Inlet. Local musicians will perform songs by Canadian artists such as Buffy Sainte-Marie, Leonard Cohen, Ian and Sylvia, Gordon Lightfoot, Joni Mitchell and Neil Young.The conference is open to everyone and there is no cost to attend any of the concurrent and plenary sessions. read more

Brock research team studies the evolution of circus performers

Flying trapeze artists, elephants standing on one foot while balancing a ball, jugglers, sword swallowers, bearded ladies: these are among the images of the traditional travelling circus.The circus is still going strong today and has gone mainstream. Think Cirque du Soleil, the Montreal-based entertainment company that has become a worldwide phenomenon.“This positive news for circus companies, artists and audiences with a taste for thrilling entertainment also raises questions about circuses’ historic status as site for the celebration and exploitation of differences, from stagings of exceptional performing bodies to the display of ‘freakery,’” says Assistant Professor of Dramatic Arts Karen Fricker.Fricker is part of an international team of academics, artists and producers researching the relationship of contemporary circus to the widespread practice in traditional circus of featuring people with unusual physical features, such as Siamese twins, women who grow beards, and in extreme cases, people living with a disease or condition that exaggerates certain body parts.There’s a large history of profound racism, sexism and ableism that I don’t think is present in contemporary circus in the same way, mostly because contemporary ideologies are very transformed.The team is interested in the ways in which today’s circus artists relate to this “freak show” tradition. Fricker is one of three leaders of the project, called “Circus and its Others,” along with Charles Batson of Union College, in New York and L. Patrick Leroux of Concordia University.This month, they are co-organizing a conference about this subject as part of the Montreal Complètement Cirque Festival, with the assistance of two Brock graduate students, Hayley Rose Malouin and Taylor Zajdlik.“There’s a large history of profound racism, sexism and ableism that I don’t think is present in contemporary circus in the same way, mostly because contemporary ideologies are very transformed,” says Malouin. “However, it’s interesting to see how some of those elements of sideshow ‘freakishness’ and how we view those born bodies finds its way into contemporary circus.”Fricker explains that circuses are, in essence, “variety shows” that feature highly-trained people with extraordinary skills performing daring, risky and spectacular feats.These acts are very physical; as a result, a lot of attention is focused on performers’ bodies. In traditional circuses, this focus extended to viewing bodies that were born unusual or made different from diseases or other factors beyond someone’s control.But societies eventually became more aware of the struggles and rights of people living with physical challenges, and also increasingly became more sensitive to animal exploitation. For example, after 145 years of featuring elephants in its circus acts, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey announced that it has plans to retire its elephant herd by 2018.The creation of Cirque du Soleil was a turning point in circus history. In the early 1980s, a troupe “juggled, danced, breathed fire and played music” for audiences in Baie-Saint-Paul near Quebec City, says the group’s website.One of the performers, Guy Laliberté, took the show on the road in 1984 to celebrate the 450th anniversary of Jacques Cartier’s discovery of Canada.“The show was a striking, dramatic mix of circus arts (without animals) and street performance that featured wild, outrageous costumes, magical lighting, and original music,” according to the website. Notably, one of the key features that distinguishes Cirque du Soleil from traditional circus is that it does not include animal acts, and rarely puts born difference on display in its shows.Zajdlik says contemporary circuses such as Soleil largely feature “achieved bodies,” bodies “transformed into these powerful vessels that become circus performers” through intensive physical training.“Are we gazing upon these spectacular bodies because they represent something that we nostalgically long for in what the freak once gave us?” says Zajdlik. “From aerial feats to contortions, these bodies are doing extraordinary things that you would not normally get to see. In a way, that kind-of represents what the ‘freak’ once represented for circus.”The researchers note that there are circuses that feature unusual bodies, but in a very different way than in the past.The keynote speaker at this month’s conference is Jennifer Miller, who founded Circus Amok in New York City and is also a professor at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn.Miller has had a beard since her early 20s. She is known as the “Bearded Lady,” who uses her performances to “ask people who look at her to think critically about what they understand as normatively female or male, masculine or feminine,” says Fricker.“She challenges those boundaries,” says Fricker. “We’re in the age of gender fluidity. I think she speaks from, and to that, culture in an interesting way.”The Circus and its Others conference will be held in Montreal July 15 to 17. read more

Arkansas holds off Colorado State 9874 for 6th straight win

FORT COLLINS, Colo. — Mason Jones scored 16 points and big man Daniel Gafford overcame a sluggish start to finish with 12, helping Arkansas beat Colorado State 98-74 on Wednesday night for its sixth straight win.Arkansas (6-1) led by as many as 22 points early in the second when the Rams (4-5) went on a 17-2 run to make things interesting. After a timeout to regain their composure, the Razorbacks came out refocused and reeled off 13 straight points to wrap up the win.There were nearly a dozen NBA scouts on hand to catch a glimpse of the 6-foot-11 Gafford, who’s largely viewed as a lottery pick. He played limited minutes in the first half due to foul trouble, but he found his rhythm after intermission. He added nine rebounds and three assists.Isaiah Joe kept up his torrid shooting by contributing 14 points. The freshman guard was coming off a 34-point outing against Florida International that earned him the Southeastern Conference basketball player of the week honours.The Razorbacks’ bench came up clutch by outscoring the Rams by a 38-7 margin. Jalen Harris had 12 assists, quite a few leading to dunks.J.D. Paige and Kendle More each scored 16 points for the Rams. Nico Carvacho scored 12 points and grabbed 11 rebounds before fouling out.The Razorbacks basketball team gained a measure of revenge for the school. In September, the football team squandered an 18-point lead in a 34-27 loss to Colorado State. This time, they weren’t about to let a lead slip away.It was a rare visit to Fort Collins by an SEC men’s basketball team. This marked the first time since 2005 a team from that league played at Moby Arena.BIG PICTUREArkansas: Even when Gafford went to the bench with early foul trouble, the Razorbacks had plenty of players to pick up the slack. To think, the Razorbacks were selected 10th in the preseason SEC poll. Then again, in each of the last five seasons the team has eclipsed the preseason polls.Colorado State: First-year Rams coach Niko Medved had to like what he saw in the second half. On the verge of getting blown out, the Rams threw a scare at Arkansas.UP NEXTArkansas: Hosts Western Kentucky on Saturday in the first meeting between the two programs since 1974. The Razorbacks lead the series 4-2.Colorado State: Play the second of a three-game homestand Saturday against Sam Houston State.___More AP college basketball: https://apnews.com/Collegebasketball and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25Pat Graham, The Associated Press read more

Hellenic says parliament put end to insecurity

first_imgHellenic Bank said on Monday that Sunday’s vote at the parliament which paved the way for the completion of the deal with the Co-op puts an end to the insecurity of recent months, marked by massive deposit withdrawals by the customers of the government-owned lender.With the completion of the deal, subject to shareholder and supervisor approval, “Hellenic Bank’s balance sheet will be considerably strengthened while the considerable reduction of the non-performing loans ratio and other synergies will lead to a reduction of the risk in the balance sheet and to a more robust banking entity,” Hellenic said in an emailed statement.Lawmakers approved on Sunday the extension of government guarantees to Hellenic Bank to shield it from potential impairments resulting from the acquisition of Co-op assets, in accordance with the terms negotiated by the two banks.In addition, the parliament passed bills designed to expedite the reduction of non-performing loans, a condition set by the European Commission’s competition watchdog.Co-op customers withdrew €2bn in deposits in the first three months of the year on concerns about the bank’s capital adequacy after it made little progress in reducing its stock of non-performing loans. Depositors also continued to withdraw savings from co-operatives in recent weeks on fears the parliament could block the deal with Hellenic.Hellenic’s market share in performing loans will more than triple to 22 per cent while its share in deposits will increase from 12 per cent to 30 per cent, Hellenic said. The non-performing loans share is expected to drop from currently 52 per cent to around 25 per cent with the coverage ratio remaining at 60 per cent. The net loans to deposits ratio is expected to be less than 50 per cent, allowing the bank to extend more loans.With the completion of the deal, the second largest company acquisition after Bank of Cyprus was forced to acquire the operations of the Cyprus Popular Bank in 2013, “both the Hellenic Bank and Co-op customers will be part of a larger, healthier and dynamic organisation which will offer them a wide range of improved banking services,” Hellenic said.“For the time, there will be no change for Co-op customers concerning their transactions,” Hellenic, the only major Cypriot lender which survived the 2013 banking crisis without resorting to a bailout or bail-in, said. “Hellenic Bank will inform them timely in the case of future changes.”You May LikeObsevDon’t Do This At Any Job Interview, Even Though You Probably Think It’s SmartObsevUndoHomeToGoBest Vacation Home Deals in the USAHomeToGoUndoModernize Solar QuotesHomeowners Rush To Claim Rebates From The GovernmentModernize Solar QuotesUndo Fresh case of Blue Nile virus in northUndoBritish woman who claimed gang-rape taken to courtUndoFrom space heroes to artists: women written out of historyUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
