Monument to Canadas war in Afghanistan gets a home after years of

first_imgOTTAWA — A site has been officially approved for the federal government’s promised national monument for the war in Afghanistan, five years after the memorial was first promised.The decision by the National Capital Commission today ends years of bickering over where the memorial should be located and paves the way for it to be built east of the Canadian War Museum in downtown Ottawa.The national monument is separate from the memorial to soldiers who died in Afghanistan, whose unveiling at the Canadian Forces’ new headquarters building last month prompted an outcry.The national monument was first promised by the previous Conservative government in May 2014 following the end of Canada’s 13-year mission in Afghanistan.Construction was to be done in 2017, but the schedule was derailed by complaints the location selected by the government was difficult for some disabled veterans to reach.A new location was proposed immediately west of the war museum, but the institution and its architect, Raymond Moriyama, opposed that site.The approved location is across the street from the war museum and behind the National Holocaust Monument.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Tyendinaga parents refuse to hand over medical files to doctor

first_imgBy Kenneth JacksonAPTN National NewsThe parents of three children diagnosed with leukemia on Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory are refusing to sign a waiver allowing a doctor to examine their medical records for possible links.They believe the doctor picked by the band council isn’t an expert and shouldn’t be the one to look over the medical files.“It’s hard,” said Dawn Sero-Loft, the mother of Paula, 13, who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) earlier this year and died in September. “The information is there they just need to get an expert on leukemia.”The Tyendinaga band council has come under fired in recent weeks because of the leukemia cases. The community is demanding proper water testing, including around the landfill that was closed several years ago. They don’t feel it was done properly but the band council said it was closed as per proper procedures.The reserve has been on a boil water advisory for several years and at any given time about half the wells have undrinkable water.The parents and community members were told at a town hall meeting in November by Dr. Richard Schabas, the medical officer of health for Hastings and Prince Edward Counties, that medical science didn’t support their theory that ALL is linked to the water.At the meeting Schabas said while it’s a concern to have a “cluster” of cases he said it happens and it’s more of a case of chance.He repeated his beliefs in a letter to the band council Nov. 28.“You have informed me that his consent will not be forthcoming. As a result, my comments rely entirely on the information you have provided to me and can only pertain to childhood leukemia in general, rather than to any specific cases in your community,” said Schabas in his letter to Chief R. Donald Maracle.At the meeting Schabas said he wasn’t an expert in leukemia and based his opinion on medical science he read and consulting with other doctors. He also said there isn’t much known about what causes ALL.“According to Dr. Schabas he doesn’t know what causes it so what’s the point. In my understanding why give him that information if he doesn’t know what to do with it. He already said he wasn’t an expert in leukemia,” said Sero-Loft. She also said she’s refusing until the band does proper water testing.In an interview with APTN National News, Schabas said the families don’t want an expert on leukemia but someone trained to do such an investigation.“The expertise required to do an investigation like this is not the same as being an expert in leukemia. Someone who is an expert in leukemia is going to be an expert in the treatment of leukemia,” said Schabas. “This is doing an epidemiological investigation, which is a different thing and I think I have the full skill set to do that.”He said anyone who did the review would work very closely with a leukemia expert.“The key question here is, which obviously is first and foremost in everyone’s mind, are these just three separate events that happened by chance that happened together in time and space or are they somehow linked. Is there some sort of common cause or common exposure which caused these three cases,” he said. “The key to doing that is to go back and look closely at the biology of the cases.”In a preliminary review, Schabas believes the “overwhelming likelihood” is the review would lead nowhere but is still offering to review the files.One area that the community believes could be a cause is the chemical benzene which has been found in water on the reserve. But Schabas said it’s known to cause a different form of leukemia, acute myeloblastic leukemia. However, there has been some evidence to suggest benzene is also linked to ALL, but Schabas doesn’t give it much weight.“Evidence linking benzene and ALL is very weak and, in my opinion, should not be considered causal,” he said in his letter.Schabas said most childhood leukemia is ALL and there is one case per year for ever 25,000 children up to 15-years-old. Preliminary analysis showed the Tyendinaga area doesn’t have higher than average rates for leukemia over the past 27 years.“However, a cluster of three cases of ALL in one year in a small community is very unusual,” he said.Tyendinaga has a population of about 2,500.Two of the children attended Quinte Mohawk School while the third attended a different school. Parents have been concerned about the water quality at Quinte. Water testing there has been questioned by the parents.The community has gone as far as file a criminal complaint for alleged criminal negligence of the band’s handling of the water testing with the Tyendinaga police who forwarded the file to the Ontario Provincial Police.Some children in recent weeks have also developed body sores. Parents have said doctors don’t know what’s causing the sores. Another child was recently diagnosed with brain cancer.Schabas told Maracle he’ll be proceeding with a broader analysis of cancer rates in Tyendinaga in the next few weeks.kjackson@aptn.calast_img read more

UK working on technology to tackle violent online videos

NEW YORK — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson says scientists are working on technology to stop violent attacks from being broadcast live on the internet as part of an international call to curb online extremism.The United Kingdom is among almost 20 countries backing the “Christchurch call,” an appeal to world leaders and tech companies launched after 51 people died in a far-right attack on mosques in the New Zealand city in March.The U.S. hasn’t joined, citing privacy concerns, and tech firms are struggling with the sheer volume of content.The British government says it’ll fund data-science experts to work on an algorithm to improve the detection of violent and harmful videos.Johnson said Monday at the United Nations that the internet must not become “a place to watch mass murder unfold.”The Associated Press read more

NFL Coaches Yell At Refs Because It Freakin Works

In the first quarter of a scoreless 2016 AFC Championship game against the New England Patriots, Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos faced third-and-6 from their own 44-yard line. Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas ran a 15-yard out, breaking toward the Broncos’ sideline. He did not catch Manning’s wobbly throw, but there was contact on the play, and Denver’s players and coaching staff appealed to the official for a pass interference call on Patriots cornerback Logan Ryan. They got one, and the Broncos got a first down, scoring the game’s opening touchdown four plays later.On the ensuing drive, the Patriots faced third-and-3 at their own 27-yard line. Rob Gronkowski ran a wheel route up the Broncos’ sideline with T.J. Ward in coverage. As the Patriots tight end turned to look back for the ball, the defender made contact and shoved him, preventing a catch. Both Gronk and Tom Brady yelled for a penalty. The flag did not come, and the Patriots were forced to punt.Similar plays led to different outcomes that benefited the team on the sideline closest to the on-field action. Most NFL refs would likely say they are immune any sideline bias. “If I make a call because a coach is screaming at me on one side of the field and it’s wrong, that’s a bad day for me,” former NFL official Scott Green told us. (The NFL declined to comment.)But as it turns out, a sideline bias in the NFL is real, and it’s spectacular. To prove it, we looked at the rates at which refs call the NFL’s most severe penalties, including defensive pass interference, aggressive infractions like personal fouls and unnecessary roughness, and offensive holding calls, based on where the offensive team ran its play.1Some of this research was published in March in Economic Inquiry.For three common penalties, the direction of the play — that is, whether it’s run toward the offensive or defensive team’s sideline — makes a significant difference. In other words, refs make more defensive pass interference calls on the offensive team’s sideline but more offensive holding calls on the defensive team’s sideline. What’s more, these differences aren’t uniform across the field — the effect only shows up on plays run, roughly, between the 32-yard lines, the same space where coaches and players are allowed to stand during play.The following graphs show the penalty rates per 1,000 plays for defensive pass interference and aggressive defensive penalties, which include unnecessary roughness, personal fouls, unsportsmanlike conduct, and horse-collar tackles.2The data includes regular-season games between 2010 and 2014, and uses coin-toss information provided by Football Outsiders and play-by-play data from Armchair Analysis. To estimate penalty rates, we used a model of penalty outcomes that depends on yard line and which sideline (offensive or defensive team’s) the play was closer to. Additional methodological details can be found here. So what could be causing this phenomenon?Refs are faced with a near-impossible task. They make judgment calls in real time, relying on just their eyes and their experience. Deprived of the advantages, like instant replay, that we enjoy from the couch, refs have less information to help them resist the normal subconscious urge to draw on external cues for assistance in making borderline calls. In psychology terms, this process is called cue learning. It’s why we laugh longer in the presence of other humans laughing,4Which, in turn, is the reason that many TV comedies use a laugh track. why we eat more in the presence of overweight company, and why our judgment of persuasive speeches is influenced by the audience’s reaction.The most common cue in sports is crowd noise, and because crowd noise almost always supports the home team, the way the fans sway the referees is the No. 1 driver of home-field advantage in sports. And one notable experiment suggests that how loud a crowd is helps refs decide whether an interaction should be penalized. A pair of German researchers showed actual referees old video clips of possible soccer infractions, with crowd noise played at high or low volume. Refs looking at the exact same interactions were more likely to hand out a yellow card when they heard a lot of crowd noise than when the volume was low.It follows, then, that screaming and hat-throwing football personnel may also have an effect on referee choices. In football, this sideline bias even seems to supersede refs’ tendency to support the home team: The differences in the penalty rates from sideline to sideline are several times larger than the differences in penalty rates between the home and away teams.That bias can affect the outcome even when officials have time to confer. In a 2015 playoff game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Detroit Lions, Matthew Stafford threw a third-and-1 pass to Brandon Pettigrew. Officials initially called defensive pass interference on the Cowboys’ Anthony Hitchens.But the flag occurred right in front of the Cowboys sideline. This led to some confusion. It also led to a helmetless Dez Bryant yelling at the official.After conferring with each other, the officials picked up the flag, a decision that Mike Pereira, Fox Sports’ rules analyst and the NFL’s former vice president of officiating, said was incorrect. Brian Burke of Advanced Football Analytics calculates that when the official picked up the flag, the Lions’ chances of winning that game dropped by 12 percentage points.Dallas won 24-20.Check out our latest NFL playoff predictions. Refs throw flags for defensive infractions at significantly higher rates when plays are run in the direction of the offensive team’s sideline; near midfield, defensive penalties are called about 50 percent more often on the offensive team’s sideline than the defensive team’s. Close to the end zone, where the sidelines are supposed to be free of coaches and players, these differences are negligible.For offensive flags, that association is reversed, at least on holding penalties.3Offensive pass interference calls didn’t vary by proximity to either team’s sideline. Here’s the rate of holding calls made on outside run plays, which shows how the defensive team’s sideline can help draw flags on the offense. Around midfield, offensive holding gets called about 35 percent more often on plays run at the defensive team’s sideline. read more

Brazils Ugly Win Didnt Change Its Prospects All That Much

Brazil defeated Croatia 3-1 in the opening match of the World Cup on Thursday — while looking about as bad as it could while winning by that scoreline. Its go-ahead goal came on a penalty kick following a dubious call by referee Yuichi Nishimura. Its third goal perhaps ought to have been stopped by Croatian goalkeeper Stipe Pletikosa. And the one it conceded was an own goal by Marcelo.FiveThirtyEight’s World Cup forecasts have been updated to reflect the results of the match, as they will be at the conclusion of each game. The projections don’t account for style points — it’s the scoreline that matters — so Brazil won’t be harmed by winning ugly.A bit more about how these updates work in a moment, but one soccer-related thought first. Some of Brazil’s edge — it had an 88 percent chance of beating Croatia in our pre-match predictions — was because of home-field advantage. Some of that advantage, as Tobias Moskowitz and Jon Wertheim have found, comes because home teams are more likely to benefit from refereeing decisions. Soccer has an especially large home-field advantage, in part because the officiating plays such a large role in the sport, especially in calling penalties and issuing red cards. Would Nishimura have made that (mistaken) penalty call had the game been played in Dubrovnik, rather than Sao Paulo? We’ll never know for sure, but the odds say it’s less likely.Back to our forecasts: Technically speaking, there are two programs that our colleagues at ESPN Stats & Info run to generate our World Cup forecasts. One program is a match simulator that plays out the results of the rest of the tournament 10,000 times. The other is the Soccer Power Index algorithm itself, which informs the match simulator’s estimate of how strong each team is.We’ll be running the match simulator at the end of each game (there will usually be a lag of 20 to 30 minutes before we get the new results on the site). However, the Soccer Power Index (SPI) program, which is computationally intensive, runs only once per day, overnight after all games have concluded.I’ll explain why this distinction matters by asking you to imagine that Brazil had drawn 1-1 with Croatia, rather than pulling out the win. This would hurt Brazil in two ways: First, it would increase the odds that it would fail to advance from its group. (Granted, Brazil’s odds would still be very high.) That change would be reflected immediately in our forecasts based on the match simulator.But a draw would also have lowered SPI’s estimate of Brazil’s strength. (SPI rates recent matches heavily, and it regards Brazil very highly, so a draw might have had a fair amount of impact.) That change, however, would not be reflected until our overnight update.There are also some other, more subtle things that can go on with SPI in the overnight updates. It’s learning more about which players a team has in its starting lineup, which reflects the player-rating component of the model. It also learns more about the relative strength of the continents. A draw for Brazil, for instance, would have (very slightly) lowered SPI’s estimate of the chances for Argentina, Colombia, and so forth, as the match would represent one data point showing that South America was not quite as strong as assumed.As far as the actual scoreline goes — Brazil 3, Croatia 1 — it won’t do much to improve SPI’s view on Brazil, either, since SPI had Brazil winning against Croatia by slightly more than two goals on average.Based on the results of the match simulator, however, Brazil’s odds of advancing from Group A have risen to 99.8 percent from 99.3 percent before the match. It’s usually not worth sweating the decimal places since there can sometimes be noise introduced by the match simulator — 10,000 simulations is a lot, but not enough to entirely remove the margin of error. In this case, however, the match simulator is just pointing out the obvious: It was going to be really hard for Brazil to fail to advance, and it will be even harder now that it’s picked up three points.How much were Croatia’s advancement odds hurt? They weren’t, actually — instead, they rose slightly to 37.5 percent from 36.6 percent. Some of this probably reflects the statistical noise that I referred to earlier. However, there is one way in which the match helped Croatia: Losing to Brazil by only two goals is not such a bad result. Mexico and Cameroon, the other two teams in Group A, could lose to Brazil by larger margins. In fact, SPI has Mexico as a 2.6-goal underdog, and Cameroon as a 3.2-goal underdog. That could make a difference if the second advancement position from Group A comes down to a tiebreaker based on goal differential, as it might. And FIFA’s next tiebreaker is based on goals scored, so losing 3-1 is better than losing 2-0. I doubt the Croats will be happy with the result of Thursday’s game, however. read more

Anderson knows the England dressingroom will never be the same –

How he coped with the week, and just watched the ball and reacted, is how he coped throughout his career. Many cricketers get affected by the external messages, he just controlled what he can control.“But you could see the true light of Jimmy Anderson,” Vaughan added. “On the pitch you see him as a grumpy bugger, he doesn’t smile a great deal, he gets into the odd confrontation – which I like – but off the field he’s a normal human being which came across at The Oval.“His eyes were blubbing up and he was about to burst into tears. And that is what sport brings you to, when you’ve been with someone for so long and been through so much, in terms of great series wins and some negative times as well. When you see your pal leaving and know it’s the last time you’re going to spend a few hours in the dressing room with him.”Vaughan himself knows all too well the emotions that sport can generate, after his own tearful resignation as Test captain in the summer of 2008. Vaughan never played for England again after that announcement and recognises how quickly former team-mates can become strangers when their days in the dressing-room are over.“As much as they say they’ll go back in and invite Alastair in for a drink, it’s never the same when you’re not a part of the team,” he said. “You might go in and say hello, you might go in and make a speech, but it’s never the same place again and I think Jimmy knows that.”Anderson himself has set no definitive date for his retirement and, with another stellar haul of 42 wickets at 20.54 in 2018, he is still at the peak of his powers at the age of 36. However, he also admitted last week that the end could come at any time, much as happened in 2006-07 to Glenn McGrath, the man whose tally of 563 Test wickets he overtook last week.“I hope Jimmy goes on, because his body and his bowling, from what I’ve seen, gets better and better,” Vaughan added. “But he knows it will have to come to an end soon, and I hope what Alastair did doesn’t trigger one or two into thinking they should do the same because Jimmy and Stuart Broad still have a lot to give.”Next week, England will name their Test squad for the Sri Lanka tour – their first for more than 12 years without Cook at the top of the order – and Vaughan expects Surrey’s Rory Burns to be given the first chance to fill the opening vacancy for the first Test in Galle, alongside the under-pressure incumbent, Keaton Jennings.“In terms of numbers over the past 12 years, you can’t replace Alastair Cook, but in terms of what he’s delivered over the past couple of years, you probably can get close because he’d be the first to admit he hasn’t been at his best,” said Vaughan. “Players are always replaced, you always talk about how impossible it will be, but there will be someone who plays in a year or two’s time and then, I dread to say it, it will be ‘Alastair Who’?“Cook will always be remembered by us in cricket for being great, but you move on, you have to. That’s what Joe Root has to do with a new opening partnership. He has to give faith to whoever he’s selected to go out there and face the new ball, and get better starts. That’s been the problem. Sort that area out at 1,2 and 3, and they’ll be a fantastic team.“Rory Burns, I’ve seen his numbers,” Vaughan added. “He must be able to play the moving ball because you can’t succeed in county cricket without it.“But Keaton Jennings has now had a number of opportunities to know exactly what Test match cricket is, and as much as it’s been doing a bit in a tough couple of summers, let’s not make excuses. He had five Tests against India and one against Pakistan, and he should have got a substantial score.“He’ll go to Sri Lanka knowing he’s got three games to keep his Test career.” (ESPNCricinfo)  read more

Metso enters into valuable collaboration with Ghanaian school of mining

first_imgMetso is making a significant donation of equipment and services to the University of Mines and Technology (UMaT) in Tarkwa, Ghana.  This is expected to benefit the current as well as future students.  The equipment, valued at $50,000, will be officially presented to the university on May 7, and will be installed in the Mineral Engineering Department’s  laboratory. The equipment will consist of: a Metso D12 complete flotation cell/scrubber; a Morse Model 2000 4″ X 6″ jaw crusher; a Marcy 6″ Gyroll cone crusher; a Denver vacuum filter; several Marcy pulp density scales; a Denver pulp density scale; a Denver 4″ X 6″ mineral jig; and all spares and  operating manuals required to maintain the equipment.  Each machine or item offered is a sample from the laboratory equipment product line that Metso offers. With the exception of the mineral jig, which was made obsolete about five years ago, all of the equipment is brand new and currently part of Metso’s product portfolio. A service agreement will also be entered into by the two parties.Fifty (50) copies of mineral processing textbooks will also be presented as part of the donation.Metso will also launch the following on the same day;1.        The annual best student award which consists of a cash price donation to the best mining and mineral engineering student  starting from this year’s congregation2.        An annual ‘mining school’ to train and update the mining industry professionals and students in technology developments in the mining industry.According to Associate Professor Richard Amankwah, who is on the UMaT Planning Committee and also the Dean of the Engineering department, this donation has come out of initial discussions between Metso represented by Mike Wallen (Vice President-Mining, Middle East  and Northern Africa), Ronald Schonleitner (Customer Service-Europe Middle East Africa), Seth Quaye (Regional Manager-Western Africa), and the mineral engineering department in July 2008. “David Renner, the Managing Director of AngloGold Ashanti’s Iduapriem mine contacted Metso to discuss the possibility of forming an alliance with the department,” he says. “Because Mr Renner is an industry partner of the department, we see this as a win-win situation for all concerned.” The Iduapriem mine accounts for about 20% of Metso- Ghana’s annual sales.Amankwah points out that the Metso equipment will be valuable to the continuing progress of his department. “We are involved in research areas such as geometallurgy, biohydrometallurgy, microwave processing of minerals, and environmental biotechnology, monitoring and management,” he explains. “The equipment will assist us greatly in developing these areas and more importantly I see the department being abreast with technological advances through this collaboration.”This donation will serve as an important link between the university and the mining industry. It not only demonstrates corporate social responsibility but also serves Metso’s future plans. Paul M. Heaton (Services Product Manager, Laboratory Equipment and Standard Products, Metso – USA) points out that “we’ve placed our equipment in an everyday learning environment.  When the student graduates and moves on to employment, they will recommend Metso to their employer for future equipment requirements. They can make firm decisions based on equipment with which they are already familiar.”This view is reinforced by Raymond Ackabah (Manager, Mill Lining Systems and Process Technology Support, Metso – Ghana). “Our alumni from the Mineral Engineering department are running processing plants and service laboratories in all mining centres in Africa,” he says. “These former students visit the school and liaise with lecturers, so Metso would be introduced to them.Amankwah indicates that, “The department would like to be considered as Metso’s research arm in the African mining industry,” he says. “We would complement Metso with our broader vision of UMaT as the leading mining and minerals research institute in Africa.”The relationship with UMaT is expected to boost Metso’s presence in Ghana further, especially since the company is currently the only one involved in such an undertaking.  “Metso is making a contribution to the future,” says Ackabah. “With our commitment to the education of engineers, we are also raising confidence in customers who will ultimately order and use our products. They will become familiar with our local expertise in both operation and servicing of equipment they already have or intend to purchase.”Amankwah sees this donation as a means of positively affecting recruiting efforts at UMaT. “Prospective students would be confident about the program, knowing that the department is affiliated with a worldclass mining, mineral processing and instrumentation company. And, of course,” he concludes, “it becomes easier for the company to recruit the best students for their projects in Africa and beyond.”UMaT was founded in 1952 as the Tarkwa Technical Institute. It has since emerged as a fully-fledged university located in Ghana’s richest mineral district approximately 89 km from Takoradi, the Western Regional capital of Ghana. Known for its mining-related programs, UMaT offers students a balance of educational excellence and real-world experience. The current student population is 1,200.  The Minerals Engineering Department alone has 180 students.UMaT strives to become a centre of excellence in Ghana and Africa for producing worldclass professionals in the fields of mining, technology and related disciplines. The specific areas include mineral exploration, mining engineering, mineral processing and extractive metallurgy and environmental engineering.last_img read more

Hate crowds love ComicCon Heres how I cope

first_img The hottest cosplay we expect to see at Comic-Con 2019 3:00 25 Photos More Comic-Con 2019 Share your voice Tania González/CNET There’s nothing like the sensation of your heartbeat quickening, your stomach dropping to your ankles and a tingling sensation that, alas, is not your Spider-Sense. Is it fear? Is it loathing? No, it’s just me trying to go to a comics convention.For whatever reason, my love of a one-stop shop for celebrating pop culture franchises I adore is countered by the severe social anxiety and fear of crowds that have plagued me most of my life. Same thing happens at theme parks. Even concerts have proven difficult.The logical thing would be to just avoid those situations. Don’t go into crowded places and the crowds can’t make it feel like everything is caving in on you, right? But then I’d just end up never going anywhere, which, while less expensive, isn’t much fun either.Little by little, I’ve found ways to help manage that pesky impulse to bolt from people-filled enclosed spaces. And since there’s a statistical possibility someone else out there might be missing out of convention-going for the same reason, I figured I’d share what I’ve learned as Comic-Con 2019 kicks off this week.  Smaller conventions still have plenty to offer, and you can build (or rebuild) your tolerance for groups of people. As a bonus, they tend to be significantly less expensive to get in, which gives you a bigger margin to spend on all that stuff you love but don’t necessarily have room for.I live in California’s Central Valley, and in the past few years there’ve been a lot more small cons popping up even out near me, but if that’s not happening where you live, it’s still worth keeping an eye out, because that could change soon.dsc0037.jpgThat look of relief on my face is because a) look at all that empty space around me, and b) the air conditioning in the convention center was working quite well. Christine Cain/CNET Wide-open spaces, y’allYou’re not apt to find large swaths of empty floor space on the show floor of almost any convention. But you can get at least a little more breathing room in hallways near the panel discussions that are scheduled. There’s also outside, weather (and in-and-out privileges) permitting. If you’re getting a little anxious bumping elbows with folks on the floor, take a break, get some air. It’s like letting your health bar regenerate.dsc0034.jpgEnlarge ImageThis was a bonus situation at SVCC. Not just a piece of wall, but also a chair. Score! Christine Cain/CNET Your friend, the wallIn 2016, I went to SDCC for the first time since 2002, a year so distant you could actually buy tickets at the door the day you planned to attend. Your average attendance at SDCC is about a billion people, to my eyes, or well over 100,000 people, if you believe SDCC’s About page.Carving off a bit of wall gave me a little relief from plowing through all the crowds. It gave me at least one direction I knew people wouldn’t be coming from, and it’s also a good place to do some people watching.Another thing that helped, oddly: waiting in line. Sure, you’re with a bunch of people, but there’s order to it (ideally, anyway; some of those lines get crazy-long and circuitous), and in a way, the people in front of you and behind you act as buffers from other people around you. Plus, you can chat while you’re waiting if you’re so inclined.

If you spot a tall person or two going your way, you can draft behind them as they part the crowd. Drafting: it’s not just for cars!Rise and fallDon’t get discouraged if you have setbacks in your progress, or if you’re not making progress as quickly as you’d like. I mean, you are basically trying to fight your own brain. Just in the last few years, I’ve gotten better about not immediately bolting out the door once I see people spilling from every corridor and staircase. But I still have a hard time when it comes to meeting actors or artists in attendance. Apparently, because the anxiety and crowd fear wasn’t enough, I’m also horribly shy.It’s easier if I’ve got friends with me. If someone starts the conversation, I can join in rather than just stumbling to think of something to say. I figure this is just another thing to work on, little by little.Got any tips that have helped you manage going to conventions? Feel free to share in the comments!

So I went to (relatively) smaller cons, like Silicon Valley Comic Con. SVCC isn’t as big as SDCC — Steve Wozniak only started it in 2016 — but there were lots of people crammed into the San Jose Convention Center last time I went.

Harvey Puts Strain On ChildCare Providers Struggling To Reopen

first_img To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: X GABRIEL CRISTÓVER PÉREZ / KUTPatricia Belcher speaks with her daughter as she lays with her grandchildren, Kamayiah Franklin, Zada Brown and Noe Alvarez at the Delco Center.While Harvey has shut down school for hundreds of thousands of students, it’s also closed down child-care centers for many of Houston’s youngest children.One major reason is physical damage to child care centers. A survey of 4,000 daycare providers shows that 1,400 suffered some kind of damage.  “Classroom materials being damaged, roofs being damaged, ceilings seeing leakage, a lot of different issues that are going to make it very difficult for them to reopen,” said Carol Shattuck, president and CEO of the Collaborative for Children.The early education advocacy group reached out to providers after the storm. She said that repairs aren’t the only challenge.“One of the biggest issues that they are facing is being able to get staff members, teachers back in the classroom so they can reopen,” she explained.Child care providers — either in centers or at private homes — have to follow certain rules for how many children one teacher can care for. And if they don’t meet that ratio, they can’t get back to normal. 00:00 /00:59 Listen Sharelast_img read more

Landscapes Recreated

first_imgPriyanka Govil is an artist who invests her creative energies into painting landscapes. But interestingly her works are not about landscapes as landscapes or landscapes in art history. Her work, basically reflects various natural and man-made things around her. Showing human tendency towards nature has become her major concern lately. In the conventional sense her works are not landscapes. But each time one looks at her works, one could see the places that exist somewhere in nature. They could be mental projections of the viewer or they could be the collective memories of her journeys.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’In her up-coming exhibition, at Art Konsult, her work will emphasis on importance of natural elements and intervention of man-made elements in a natural space. The fascination towards open spaces is a key point in her works. She considers these works as transformation stages where she merges landscapes with objects or shapes; treating them as part of a positive space. She treats them as cultural images representing social surroundings.The use of surface texture plays another signature role in her work.  In the landscapes and with the use of various other elements, she prefers to reduce the subjective elements to minimum details like adding lights to a particular section, just to suggest their presence. And these depictions become her way of telling stories.last_img read more

They also need time to investigate the accident and determine the reason for the collapse.They said that a structural expert will be brought in to review the building.A total of 200 workers were evacuated off the site Tuesday when the top of the building failed.This is not the first time a construction project has collapsed after heavy rains.

Personal Travel Manager takes dance to the high seas

first_imgPersonal Travel Manager takes dance to the high seasPTM – Gayle DawsonPersonal Travel Manager takes dance to the high seasFor the last six years, TravelManagers’ Gayle Dawson has been using her expert travel knowledge and her personal experience as a “Dance Mum” to create tailored independent and guided Dance Tours for Dance Studios and their families. Due to the overwhelming success of this enterprise, particularly over the last two year, Dawson is now partnering with other personal travel managers within the TravelManagers network to grow her Destination Dance business nationwide.TravelManagers’ Executive General Manager, Michael Gazal, says this co-operation between personal travel managers is typical of the country’s largest home-based personal travel manager (PTM) network’s approach to business.“Each and every one of our PTMs is treated as an individual and a valued business partner within the group,” he explains, “and we actively encourage our PTMs to not only draw on their personal strengths and interests, but also to work collaboratively with their fellow PTMs.”For Dawson, representative for Springfield Lakes in Queensland, her Destination Dance business came from humble beginnings, when her daughter’s dance studio asked her to assist in taking a group of dancers to Disneyland in the United States.“As I researched various options, I found there were two main existing players in the dance travel market, but as a Dance Mum myself, I knew I could offer something more; something more unique that would allow families involved in the world of dance the opportunity to travel and perform abroad; and I could provide them with more cost-effective ways to do this.”Dawson’s Destination Dance brand grew out of that introduction, and as her business has grown it has become necessary to find a creative solution to the potential problem of being too successful.“Because my business was growing quite quickly and far beyond what I could manage on my own, I invited other PTMs with similar backgrounds as Dance Mums to join Destination Dance not as employees but as partners in my business,” she says. “I continue to do the marketing but as enquiries come in, I can forward them to their local PTMs to organise the bookings, using me as their mentor.”As Dawson explains, her inclusive approach has been key in ensuring the longevity of her business.“I wanted to bring in partners rather than employees, who would work in the business and share in the success of the Destination Dance venture, all the while supported by TravelManagers’ National Partnership Office and with the full weight of the TravelManagers brand behind me. That support and expertise has been invaluable.”This co-operative point of view has enabled her to grow beyond where she could have gone as a solo operator. Her Destination Dance brand is now a major partner and sponsor with Showcase Dance, the biggest and longest-running dance competition in Australia. Her relationship with Showcase Dance has put her in touch with dance studios throughout Australia, as well as in New Zealand, Asia and the USA.Another string to Dawson’s bow is her “Dance At Sea” package, which allows dance studios and families who could not afford to travel to events in the United States to still have the opportunity to perform in a large arena for the public and partake in workshops instructed by industry professionals in the entertainment industry.“This is a great option for families to not only give their children this opportunity but to also enjoy a family holiday without breaking the budget,” says Dawson. “I have always loved Royal Caribbean as a brand, their booking system and organisation with group bookings is great, and it’s a great match for my business to have Royal Caribbean as my sole supplier for my dance group cruises.”Dawson is a great believer in the importance of adding personal touches to each group, and she’s constantly thinking of new ways to enhance the dance groups’ experience.Her enthusiasm for continuing to grow the Destination Dance business under the TravelManagers’ umbrella is clear: “I am organizing the first ever National Dance Championship at Sea in April 2018, and we already have 600 people booked.“My vision this year is to pass on more bookings to my fellow PTMs and perhaps bring more PTMs alongside to work with me as business grows. I believe Destination Dance can be a real force in the dance group travel market and with my fellow PTMs working with me, I’m very confident that this will happen.”For more information or to speak to someone confidentially about TravelManagers please contact Suzanne Laister on 1800 019 599.
